  • Pro-Trump Folks: Don’t Let The Coming IG Report Break Your Heart

    Townhall ^ | 10/23/2019 | Chris Stigall
    More than a few exasperated pro-Trump folks have been asking, “What’s taking the Justice Department’s Inspector General so long to release his findings?” The answer? It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter when it’s released and it won’t matter what’s in it. Listen, I hate to be Debbie Downer here but the anticipation surrounding this report is rooted in the hope and sincere belief that its pages contain such shocking detail of government abuses and corruption within our intelligence agencies the nation will roil as one with cries for justice and vindication for Donald Trump! Sorry. It’s not going to happen....
  • Analysis: No, A New State Department Review Does Not Exonerate Hillary Clinton on Her Email Scandal

    Journalists and progressives -- categories that heavily overlap -- have spent the last few days discussing the release of a State Department report that they say exonerates Hillary Clinton over her serial misconduct related to classified information and her infamous private email server.  Based on the agency's final report, a New York Times headline blared, "State Dept. Inquiry Into Clinton Emails Finds No Deliberate Mishandling of Classified Information." The Washington Post's headline was nearly identical.  Here is Politico's lede on the story: A State Department investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account found no widespread effort...
  • The Media Yawns as Our Civil Liberties are Trampled Upon

    A recently revealed court ruling received very little media attention. Most Americans are not aware that U.S. District Judge James Boasberg (an Obama nominee) issued a scathing indictment of our federal spy program. This ruling exposed improper searches of “tens of thousands” of illegal searches of raw intelligence databases, including 70,000 emails and telephone numbers, and other digital identifiers that were illegally searched. The Judge ruled that these searches were not consistent with the Fourth Amendment. As serious as this ruling is, the media is preoccupied working on their partisan coup attempt of the Trump administration, masked as impeachment. While...

    General Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell a few days ago requested that the DOJ turn over the contents of two phones related to Joseph Mifsud.  We now know those phones were from the UK, the country that is more suspect than Russia ever was! Sidney Powell on Tuesday demanded the DOJ “produce evidence that has only recently come into [the DOJ’s] possession. This evidence includes the data and metadata of the following two devices:” Powell wrote in her request – “This information is material, exculpatory, and relevant to the defense of Mr. Flynn, and specifically to the “OCONUS LURES” and agents...
  • CNN's Van Jones: Impeachment is 'a lose-lose situation' for Democrats

    CNN contributor Van Jones told Democrats the President Trump impeachment issue was a no-win situation. "It’s a tricky thing, the impeachment process, because for some Republicans, it makes them want to rally around the flag," Jones said Thursday on CNN. "When I was anti-Bill Clinton from the Left in the '90s, and then they tried to impeach him, suddenly Clinton was my best friend. I was like, 'Leave Bill Clinton alone.' So, I think you get crosscurrents in this thing, and at the same time, the Democrats are in a lose-lose situation," he said. Jones, 51, also warned that Democrats...

    Dive Brief: Illinois State Sen. Martin Sandoval has resigned from his position as chair of the State Senate's Transportation Committee amid a federal fraud and corruption investigation related to state construction work, the Associated Press reported. The Democratic senator is still listed as a member of the committee, however, as of Oct. 15. The move came after the details of a federal search warrant revealed that the FBI last month combed Sandoval's offices and home for information related to architect Cesar Santoy; Santoy's architecture firm, Studio ARQ; red-light camera program company SafeSpeed; lobbyists; construction companies; and employees of the Illinois...

    Despite Prior FBI Statements that Seth Rich’s DNC Computer and Emails Were Investigated, FBI Now Claims No Related Docs in FOIA Request. Attorney Requesting Documents Demands Court Step In. We reported on September 19th… that Texas businessman Ed Butowsky filed a lawsuit where he outed reporter Ellen Ratner as his source for information on Seth Rich. The DNC operative was murdered in the summer of 2016 in Washington DC. His murder was never solved. According to the lawsuit Seth Rich provided WikiLeaks the DNC emails before the 2016 election, not Russia. This totally destroys the FBI and Mueller’s claims that...

    HUGE! FBI Employees Conducted 3.1 Million Questionable and Illicit Searches, Including Searches on US Citizens in 2017-2018 According to a new declassified ruling FBI employees abused NSA mass surveillance data in 2017 and 2018.

But FBI employees and even contractors were searching the database to see what information they could find on U.S. citizens.The bureau is...

    Kathy Griffin is concerned for her safety following the fake Donald Trump massacre video that went viral. “The same groups that came after me two and a half years ago will be reinvigorated,” Griffin said on Tuesday’s The Wendy Williams Show. “Frankly, we don’t know how people take that video. It’s really, really violent. People’s heads get blown off.” The clip was a parody of a scene from Kingsman: The Secret Service. Trump’s face was superimposed into the video, and it depicted him murdering his political enemies, including Griffin. Griffin made the rare television appearance to promote her new film,...

    Ben Affleck: Bush Can Be Hung for 'Leaks' in Plamegate By Josh Hart Apr 9, 2006 Actor Ben Affleck suggested this weekend on 'Real Time with Bill Maher' that President Bush “probably leaked” Valerie Plame's name and so “if he did, you can be hung for that! That's treason!” The would be politician and Democrat went through this exchange according to News Busters that gives a brief and rough transcript on how Mr. Affleck came to this conclusion. *** The panel guests were Senator Joe Biden (D-DE) who was quite humorous as he let loose with some funny four-quotes.

    Actor Ben Affleck has made it very clear where his sympathies lie in the Leakgate affair -- and it isn't with the White House. Appearing on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," Affleck charged that President Bush "probably also leaked” CIA agent Valerie Plame's name and so "if he did, you can be hung for that! That's treason!” He continued: "You could be killed. That's not a joking around Tom DeLay 'I'll do a year, I bribed the state officials with corporate money.' That's like they shoot you in the battlefield for doing that.” Affleck also called DeLay a "criminal."

    If you had any questions about how antiwar liberals were going to respond when the Democrats didn't withdraw American troops from Iraq like they promised during the 2006 campaign, you got your answers last night on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." When the host moved the discussion to what the panel thought of "the Democrats, you know, caving in on this Iraq spending bill," actor Ben Affleck went on a tirade about these "f***ing people," saying that the "Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards" and of "looking like p***ies." Affleck concluded his attack on his...

    Donald Trump, an ongoing eruption of self-refuting statements (“I’m a very stable genius” with “a very good brain”), is adding self-impeachment to his repertoire. Spiraling downward in a tightening gyre, his increasingly unhinged public performances (Google the one with Finland’s dumbfounded president looking on) are as alarming as they are embarrassing. His decision regarding Syria and the Kurds was made so flippantly that it has stirred faint flickers of thinking among Congress’ vegetative Republicans.

    Fired former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe admitted to former Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein that "the dossier compiled by Steele had its flaws. Steele warned us that he couldn't verify its contents and that we should not take it as 'gospel.' But President Obama was pressing us on the need to prevent Donald Trump from becoming the next president. Under these circumstances I think people will understand that a rigid adherence to the law would not have allowed us to do as he asked." "By nature, much of the information spies like Steele obtain is hearsay, innuendo, and inference," McCabe...
