  • Valerie Plame: Agent of Anti-Semitism

    Tweet blaming Jews for wars follows her effort to block Trump from Twitter for “hate speech.” Valerie Plame, who was outed in a press leak as an undercover CIA operative during former President George W. Bush’s administration, soon became a darling of the Left for her anti-Bush stance. She was able to successfully portray herself as the victim of neo-conservatives’ payback for what her husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, did in publicly challenging the Bush administration’s explanation for invading Iraq. Ms. Plame has not dropped out of sight. She campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election cycle and...

    Valerie Plame had to know what she was tweeting. Plame retweeted a virulently antisemitic article by a well-known bigot, which she characterized as “thoughtful.” Now she’s trying to make excuses, but they don’t wash. The article itself, by Phillip Giraldi, contains the usual antisemitic tropes: Jews are guilty of dual loyalty; they control politicians, the media and entertainment; they want the US to fight wars for the country to which they have real allegiance – Israel; they are dangerous to America. Giraldi has been pushing this garbage for years and Plame is one of his fans. But this particular article...

  • Why you shouldn’t worry about the DOJ not prosecuting Comey on leaked memos

    American Thinker ^ | 08/03/2019 | Thomas Lifson
    Lots of conservatives are understandably upset that the IG Horowitz’s criminal referral of James Comey for leaking classified memos memorializing his conversations with President Trump is not being prosecuted by the Department of Justice. It eerily reminds us of James Comey exonerating Hillary Clinton for her prima facie violations of the Espionage Act because he could perceive no criminal intent (which is unnecessary for gross negligence to apply). We’ve been suckered before, so cynicism is warranted. Tucker Carlson opened his show last night making this point: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO But there is more – much more –...
  • Democrat Fault Line: After Mueller Flop, A Nadler-Pelosi Fight?

    How do we know that the decision to put Robert Mueller in front of TV cameras all day Wednesday went badly for Democrats rather than Republicans? Look where the rifts have opened or are widening. The Daily Beast spots a major fault line between two top leaders in the House Democratic caucus — Jerrold Nadler, one of the architects of the Mueller stunt, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Publicly, his colleagues and his party’s leadership praise [Nadler’s] handling of oversight into the Trump administration. But behind the scenes discontent is mounting over what some view as a less-than-smooth process in...
  • Jeffrey Epstein Was a Sex Offender. The Powerful Welcomed Him Anyway.

    New York Times, via MSn ^ | July 13, 2019 | Jodi Kantor, et al
    A strange thing happened when Jeffrey Epstein came back to New York City after being branded a sex offender: His reputation appeared to rise. In 2010, the year after he got out of a Florida prison, Katie Couric and George Stephanopoulos dined at his Manhattan mansion with a British royal. The next year, Mr. Epstein was photographed at a “billionaire’s dinner” attended by tech titans like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk. A page popped up on Harvard University’s website lauding his accomplishments, and superlative-filled news releases described his lofty ambitions as he dedicated $10 million to charitable causes.

    Alan Dershowitz is speaking out for the first time since Jeffrey Epstein‘s indictment. The legal scholar — who was reportedly ticketed to appear on Hannity Monday night, but was not seen — broke his silence Tuesday morning on local radio in New York. Speaking with host Joe Piscopo, Dershowitz highlighted his top-line takeaway from the Epstein indictment. “The indictment itself is fairly bare bones,” he said. “From my point of view, the important thing is that it doesn’t mention me.” Dershowitz has been accused of participating in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking operation. Virginia Giuffre, who is suing Dershowitz for defamation,...

    Way down the article, the author squeezes this in: Brown’s stories took note of the extensive network of political, business and legal allies assembled by Epstein over the years and questioned the extent to which that network may have protected him or helped cushion his fall. It included: A former president, Bill Clinton; the U.K.’s Prince Andrew; powerhouse attorneys such as Alan Dershowitz, Kenneth Starr, and Roy Black; and business contacts such as Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the late publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, and Leslie Wexner, the owner of retailer Victoria’s Secret.

    Democrats will regret issuing a subpoena to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who agreed to testify later this summer, according to Alan Dershowitz. Mueller cannot refuse to answer questions from Republicans not covered by "privilege," Dershowitz claimed on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle." "I'm trying to stop them from shooting themselves in the foot," he said.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) refused Sunday to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp, after a Jewish group had invited her to tour that camp and others this summer to educate herself about the facts of the Holocaust. Last Monday evening, Ocasio-Cortez compared detention facilities for illegal aliens caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border to “concentration camps,” adding the phrase “never again,” which commonly refers to the Nazi Holocaust. The remark drew outrage and criticism, even from fellow Democrats. Nevertheless, Ocasio-Cortez doubled down, first claiming that she had not been referring to Nazi Germany, then drawing parallels to the U.S. internment of Japanese-Americans...

    President Trump is within his rights to invoke executive privilege, including when it comes to former White House communications director Hope Hicks, according to Alan Dershowitz. Congressional lawmakers often claim presidents are not "above the law" in many of these cases, but Congress itself is also not "above the law," Dershowitz told host Laura Ingraham on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle." "Each branch of the government has a form of executive privilege," Dershowitz said Wednesday night. "The president is perfectly entitled to invoke executive privilege. If they think it goes too far ... let the courts decide.

    Yesterday I wrote that Trump had goaded democrats and Pelosi into doing what he wanted, i.e. ban foreign foreign opposition research. He has repeatedly said that what happened to him should never happen to another President. But there's more and the left still doesn't get it and I need to spell it out even more clearly. Trump has baited the left into making all kinds of caustic remarks and they have swallowed the lure. Analysis of this Trump clip consumed most of the hour with O’Donnell interviewing several guests, including MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin, who went on an angry tirade...

    Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said on Thursday he would back former Vice President Joe Biden over President Trump if the two were facing off in the general election next year. During an interview on SiriusXM, Dershowitz told "The Dan Abrams Show" that when it comes to his vote in 2020, he will evaluate the "totality" of Trump's record in office and how a Democratic nominee like Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, would "present a real dilemma" for him.

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russia investigation should never have been written, according to Alan Dershowitz. The Constitution does not explicitly provide for special counsels or special prosecutors, Dershowitz said Tuesday on "The Ingraham Angle." He added such offices are "inconsistent" with the founding document, adding that there wasn't a pretense for the several-hundred-page conclusion to the investigation into President Trump. Dershowitz also claimed Democrats have no legal right to have Mueller testify before them. "Prosecutors have a right to say only one thing: We have concluded there's no evidence sufficient to charge the president with Russian collusion...

    Famed Harvard law professor and attorney Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should be "ashamed of herself" for reportedly saying she wanted to see President Trump in prison. Dershowitz also defended the president's right to fight back. "I have to tell you, as a liberal Democrat, I'm appalled at Nancy Pelosi. The idea of her weaponizing the criminal justice system -- and calling for the imprisonment of the president of the United States without him being charged with any crime, without him being charged with any impeachable offense -- it's just outrageous," Dershowitz said on Fox News'...

    When I came of age during the 1950s, liberals and civil libertarians were deeply concerned about the abuses of congressional investigations to expose communists and “fellow travelers.” Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy was using congressional committees to do his dirty work. The committee leaders would claim that they had legitimate legislative purposes in subpoenaing actors, professors, and government employees to interrogate them about their past political affiliations. The purported purposes were to legislate more effective controls over communist influence in our government and to conduct oversight of the executive branch. Most liberals and civil libertarians saw through this ruse. The obvious...

    Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz, who wrote the introduction for the final Mueller Report that the former special counsel turned into the Justice Department following the “Russian collusion” witch hunt designed to depose POTUS Donald Trump, said Friday it’s time for Congress to get rid of the position altogether. In an appearance on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham program, Dershowitz agreed with Attorney General William Barr’s statement that Mueller “should have come to a conclusion” regarding whether or not the president actually obstructed justice — a preposterous allegation in the first place, given his intense cooperation with Mueller’s probe.
