From tampons to french vanilla creamer: Armed Oregon militants update their occupation wish list

Published

on

One week into their uninvited stay at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, the militia members who have occupied the park have given no indication that they will be leaving soon, posting a wish list of items they have requested from their backers.

Despite the fact that the local “safety committee” founded by leader Ammon Bundy has asked them to leave, the list — posted on social media — indicates that they are in it for the long haul, with requests for bedding, throw rugs, shelving units to store food and ice chests.

Previously, the occupiers were mocked for their requests for “snacks,” indicating a short stay, but the new list has expanded to food item staples including eggs, flour, coffee, hamburgers and hot dogs, french vanilla creamer and assorted condiments including Miracle Whip.

Apparently many of the militiamen rushed to Oregon to help hold the park without packing properly for freezing temperatures, with the list also asking for boots, socks, thermal underwear, snow pants, warm blankets and sleeping bags.

Personal care items requested include body wash, shampoo, tampons, shaving cream, razors and deodorant.

Trump’s lie about ‘doctored’ impeachment transcripts debunked by impeachment witnesses’ lawyers

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday falsely accused Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) of releasing "doctored" transcripts of impeachment inquiry witnesses and then bizarrely suggested that Republicans release their own versions of the transcripts.

"Shifty Adam Schiff will only release doctored transcripts," the president wrote on Twitter. "We haven’t even seen the documents and are restricted from (get this) having a lawyer."

Trump presented no evidence to back up his claim that Schiff had done something to alter the transcripts, which show that multiple administration officials testified that the Trump administration was withholding aid to Ukraine until its government agreed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump-appointed judge delivers major blow to president’s efforts to keep his taxes secret

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday suffered yet another legal defeat in his quest to keep his tax returns a secret -- and it came at the hands of one of the president's own appointees.

CNN reports that Trump-appointed Judge Carl Nichols the of United States District Court for the District of Columbia has ruled that the president cannot sue the state of New York in his court to prevent the release of his taxes.

In his ruling, Nichols found that Trump's attorneys failed to establish a so-called "conspiracy jurisdiction" based on his accusations that New York Attorney General Letitia James is a co-conspirator with House Democrats in a plot to improperly reveal the president's personal financial information.
