    Donald Trump put fear in the hearts of the left before the election, but since then, his opponents have gone completely off the deep end. They’ve marched through the streets. They’ve destroyed property. They’ve beaten Trump supporters and lashed out at his vice president after he attended a Broadway play. They fear – correctly, it seems, judging from the appointments and other decrees emanating from Trump Tower – that, unlike the current occupant, Trump looks at the presidency as something to do, not something to be. He’s not thinking about having Jay-Z and Beyonce at the White House or which...

Attorneys for the township also confirm that a lawyer representing the mosque was in contact with DOJ investigators well before the planning board reached any decision regarding the ISBR’s application. “These communications, unknown by the Township at the time, suggest an inappropriate collusion with Plaintiffs rather than an unbiased review.” The town also accuses the Department of Justice of engaging in punitive behavior throughout the investigation, and not acting in good faith. . . .

    For supporters of Hillary Clinton, the post circulating on Facebook and Reddit offers hope. The Justice Department, it claims, is “tallying calls” from people who want an audit of the 2016 election. And given the small margins that Donald Trump won by in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, a shift of about 55,000 votes is all that would be needed to change the outcome. The problem is, it’s bogus. The Justice Department doesn’t count up calls to determine whether it should launch an investigation. And they will not initiate a national audit — or force particular states to recount their results...

    President-elect Donald Trump has decided that his administration will not pursue criminal investigations related to former rival Hillary Clinton’s private email server or her family foundation, his campaign manager said Tuesday. Trump’s apparent decison, conveyed by campaign manager Kellyanne Conway in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,’’ would be an extraordinary break with political and legal protocol, which holds that the Attorney General and FBI makes decisions on whether to conduct investigations and file charges, free of pressure from the president. During his campaign, Trump had issued incendiary calls for a special prosecutor to re-open the FBI’s closed investigation of...

    Federal bureaucrats have been in a frenzy of activity in Obama's last months of office, pushing through 4,000 new regulations that will cost consumers more than $100 million. As liberal website Politico proudly reported, "Obama's executive agencies are intent on pushing through the president's priorities without congressional interference[.]" Trump has promised to rein in our overreaching bureaucracy through attrition. His rival in the primaries, Jeb Bush, suggested three bureaucrats retire for each new hire. That might save some money, but it will not get the job done of ending corruption and bureaucratic tyranny.

    Sen. Jeff Sessions is on record saying so-called “sanctuary cities” that protect illegal immigrants should be prosecuted. He himself may get that chance next year. Mr. Sessions is president-elect Donald Trump’s pick to be the next attorney general, and if he’s confirmed — a very large if, at this point — he will mark a 180-degree turn from the Obama administration on a host of issues, but nowhere more so than on immigration, where he’s been the Senate’s leading crackdown proponent. From his first day in office, Mr. Sessions will have the power to strip some federal funding from sanctuary...

    President-elect Donald Trump certainly has his work cut out for him: Undoing all of the damage done by President Barack Obama over the past eight years.

Last Tuesday’s election gave us a chance to pull our constitutional republic back from the brink and preserve the greatest nation the world has ever seen.

    In a push to hire minority police officers, the Obama administration is asking the nation’s 18,000 law enforcement agencies to forgive drug use, disregard the criminal records of candidates from “underrepresented communities” and lower standards on written and physical exams. It’s part of the administration’s Advancing Diversity in Law Enforcement initiative following a string of officer-involved shootings involving African Americans. Key to the mission is the racial diversification of local law enforcement agencies so that they “better reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.” To accomplish this, several barriers must be removed and the details are outlined in a...

    Hillary Downgrades Huma Abedin From "Trusted Aide" To "Staffer" Tony Katz Explains How & Why Hillary Clinton Threw Huma Abedin Under the Bus For Her Direct Involvement in Reopened FBI Investigation Tony Katz and The Morning News Nov. 01, 2016 Hillary Clinton is in a fight for her life. The polling is tightening up, at least one key Democratic pollster is reassessing his support, and the FBI has reopened their investigation into her email server after discovering 650,000 "potentially relevant" emails on the computer of Anthony Weiner, husband of longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin. On Monday, Clinton appeared to demote...

    The Wall Street Journal’s report that, for over a year, the FBI has been investigating the Clinton Foundation for potential financial crimes and influence peddling is, as Rich Lowry said Monday, a blockbuster. As I argued over the weekend, the manner in which the State Department was put in the service of the Foundation during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary is shocking. It is suggestive of a pattern of pay-to-play bribery, the monetizing of political influence, fraud, and obstruction of justice that the Justice Department should be investigating as a possible RICO conspiracy under the federal anti-racketeering laws. The Journal’s...

    The biggest extortion racket in world history has been directed from the Oval Office and managed by two Attorney Generals, Holder and Lynch. Never have such vast sums been extracted from any entities and never have such sums been applied to the construct of the massive conceit of one person.  Exceeding all parameters of reason, the current Administration  has taken advantage of the financial assault on Americans by banks and financial institutions, to build a glorifying legacy that makes Bill Clinton jealous.  For an additional measure of abuse, .  . . the billions came from taxpayers. The losses from...

    Following the FBI’s resurrection of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail affair, the Democratic leadership, suddenly, less than a week before the presidential election, faces the previously almost inconceivable possibility of a Trump victory and, therefore, of a Trump presidency. This appears particularly ironic because during the Republican primaries, the Clinton team had literally prayed for the opportunity to run against Trump. Since they considered Trump the weakest Republican opponent, they, indeed, actively encouraged their media minions to favor Trump’s bid for the Republican nomination. But once he won, something rather unexpected happened: True to his claim of being a political outsider, Trump...

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is raising questions about the timing of the FBI’s release Tuesday of records on a 15-year-old investigation into President Bill Clinton’s pardon to fugitive financier Marc Rich. The FBI posted the 129 pages of records in its online Freedom of Information Act reading room in apparent response to a FOIA request seeking information on FBI inquiries into the Clinton Foundation. The release was dated Monday, but an FBI Twitter account flagged the new posting Tuesday. The Clinton campaign, which is already at odds with FBI Director James Comey over his disclosure of new evidence in the...

    Former President Bill Clinton bent the rules and the law for donors in a questionable quest to get a fugitive billionaire pardoned. That was the chief takeaway from an FBI investigative document released Tuesday by the law enforcement agency. . . . The FBI also noted that Eric Holder, President Obama's former attorney general from 2009 to 2015, was the only Justice Department attorney contacted about the coming pardon when Rich's attorney, Jack Quinn, called him.

    Whatever could be motivating them to do such a thing? This sounds very much like an X-Files episode, except that I doubt the Cigarette Smoking Man, the Well Manicured Man, the Elder or even the aliens themselves are as corrupt as the Clintons. Whoever our real-life Mulder and Scully might be in this case (and it’s surely a lot more than two agents), the task of looking into the Clinton Foundation’s dirty dealings is getting one hell of a lot of resistance from the Justice Department, which wants the whole thing to stop immediately. I’ll give you three guesses as...
