  • Transparent DOJ and FBI Desperation: New York Times Attempts ďTrump OperationĒ Justification

    12/30/2017 8:20:51 PM PST · by mojito · 110 replies
    Immediately following confirmation by Senator Lindsey Graham about the origin of the 2016 FBI Counterintelligence Operation against candidate Donald Trump, The New York Times, via Clintonís favorite voice Maggie Haberman, pushes out an article attempting to cloud, obfuscate and justify the joint FBI and DOJ surveillance operation against Trump. The timing, content and presentation of the disinformation is transparent in the intended motive. More and more people are recognizing the FBI application to the FISA court was based on political information, the Steele Dossier, assembled by political operatives and used by political operatives within the DOJ National Security Division and...
  • Christmas Miracle: Trump Gets Liberal NY Times to Embrace Poor FBI Against GOP Attacks

    How do you get the liberals at the New York Times to embrace America‚Äôs internal surveillance agencies? Get President Trump and Republicans to criticize them. Saturday‚Äôs off-lead story by Adam Goldman and Maggie Haberman, ‚ÄúHurdle Facing F.B.I. Chief? The President ‚Äď Politics hard to Avoid as Trump Weighs In.‚ÄĚ The Republicans in Congress are hurting morale at FBI, an agency the Times suddenly adores. The jump-page headline: ‚ÄúF.B.I.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    On CNN this morning, political analyst David Gregory was discussing the lengthy interview that President Trump granted yesterday to three reporters from the New York Times, including Maggie Haberman. Said Gregory: ďItís striking that the president who spends so much time trying to discredit the news media to convince his supporters simply not to believe outlets like the New York Times, in the end cannot quit Maggie Haberman and thatís just the bottom line. Because he wants legitimacy and he knows you have to go to Maggie and her colleagues who are really the journalists of record on this Trump...

    Why I finally canceled my New York Times subscription By John Crudele October 12, 2016 | 10:23pm The other day, I canceled my subscription to the New York Times. The paperís circulation department says Iíve been getting it delivered to my home for 10 years, but I think it has been much longer. [snip] This last example is perhaps the most egregious. Another leaked email from Palmieri on July 8, 2015, is a discussion with John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman, and others about a Times story on the costs of some of Hillaryís policies. Palmieri writes: ďI wanted to...

    NYTimes.com ^ | Maggie Haberman and Jonathan Martin
    Outwardly, Donald J. Trump called it a ďunity meetingĒ ó a closed-door session in Washington on Thursday involving his own inner circle and the Republican National Committeeís high command. Inside, however, it was more of a clearing of the air, according to three people briefed in detail on the discussion. And the candid remarks included some by Mr. Trump directed at his own team. There was plenty of tension to defuse: For months, Mr. Trump has denounced the partyís major donors, and only this week he went back on a written pledge to support whoever becomes the Republican presidential nominee...

    While Mr. Trump complains that protesters are violating his First Amendment rights, many of his critics wonder about their own ability to speak out. At a Trump campaign event held at Valdosta State University in Georgia last month, several black students complained to the police that they did not understand why they were kicked out. Lee Rowland, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, said that because campaign events are considered ďpolitical theater,Ē candidates who rent event spaces have the right to disinvite anyone they choose. Those who resist could be charged with trespassing.
  • With a Slur for Ted Cruz, Donald Trump Further Splits Voters

    New York Times ^ | February 12, 2016 | JONATHAN MARTIN and MAGGIE HABERMAN
    ... [I]n a campaign that has seemingly tested every political rule, Mr. Trump’s opponents hope his latest provocation will be too much for well-mannered voters in this heavily evangelical Christian state to bear: his use of a pungently vulgar word this week to describe one of his rivals, Senator Ted Cruz. Mr. Trump’s raunchy language has become unsurprising at his rallies. And the slur against Mr. Cruz was largely overshadowed by the coverage of the next day’s New Hampshire primary. But in voicing the crude term, Mr. Trump has further polarized a Republican Party already deeply divided about his candidacy,...

    Bob Dole, the former Kansas senator and 1996 Republican presidential nominee, has never been fond of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. But in an interview Wednesday, Mr. Dole said that the party would suffer "cataclysmic" and "wholesale losses" if Mr. Cruz were the nominee, and that Donald J. Trump would fare better. "I question his allegiance to the party," Mr. Dole said of Mr. Cruz. "I don't know how often you've heard him say the word 'Republican' - not very often." Instead, Mr. Cruz uses the word "conservative," Mr. Dole said, before offering up a different word for Mr. Cruz:...

    Not long ago, Donald J. Trump and Russell Simmons were close. The hip-hop mogul and his brother Rev. Run would fly on Mr. Trump's private plane to Mar-a-Lago, the real estate developer’s lavish Florida resort. Mr. Simmons even had a playful nickname for Mr. Trump: Richie Rich. When Mr. Simmons was going through a divorce, Mr. Trump's teasing phone calls lifted his spirits. "He'd say funny stuff," Mr. Simmons said, adding that he had put Mr. Trump on speakerphone so that others could hear Mr. Trump's jovial taunts about his ex-wife getting the upper hand in the divorce. "He'd say,...

    WATERLOO, Iowa -- Until Monday, when Donald J. Trump proposed a ban on Muslims entering the United States, Hillary Clinton could hardly keep herself from laughing at the mention of his name. "I'm sorry, I can't help it," she told ABC News on Sunday, letting out a giggle that made advisers squirm. She is no longer laughing. At a town hall here on Wednesday, Mrs. Clinton delivered her most damning, direct criticism of Mr. Trump, saying that he traffics "in prejudice and paranoia," and that his Muslim proposal was "not only shameful, it's dangerous." But Mrs. Clinton also strove to...

Ms. Shalala, 74, fell ill after departing the closing events around the Clinton Global Initiative, which was held at the Sheraton New York hotel on Seventh Avenue in Manhattan, according to a statement from foundation officials.

    Many have theorized on here that Rove was working to undermine Walker. As it turns out, his Super Pac is in talks with Walkers campaign. This is from the article in the NY Times. 2013. A fund-raising advisory group formed by Crossroads after Mr. Barbourís departure failed to accomplish much. More recently, Carl Forti, the longtime Crossroads political director who simultaneously worked on the pro-Romney super PAC Restore our Future, in 2012, is said by four people with direct knowledge of the discussions to have been in talks with at least one 2016 campaign ó that of Gov. Scott Walker...

I remain incredibly grateful to Politico for an amazing run,Ē Haberman said in a tweet. Her forthcoming move to the Times was announced by Politico in an internal memo Friday.

    Hillary Clinton called President Barack Obama on Tuesday to ďmake sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack himĒ when she recently discussed her views on foreign policy in an interview with The Atlantic, according to a statement from a Clinton spokesman. The statement comes amid tension between the Clinton and Obama camps in the wake of the interview. It also comes as Obama and Clinton, his former secretary of state, are due to cross paths at a social gathering Wednesday night in Marthaís Vineyard. In the interview, Clinton dismissed the Obama administrationís self-described foreign policy...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Hillary Clinton may not be much at administering the State Department, but sheís certainly a pro when it comes to expressing outrage at her own persecution. For the woman who is supposedly the worldís most powerful feminist, her sense of victimhood remains surprisingly strong. Thatís never been more true than in her new book, Hard Choices, which points out that she Ė not the four men who died in Benghazi, Libya, on the night of September 11, 2012 Ė is the victim. The Clinton camp reportedly leaked the 34-page Benghazi chapter of Hillaryís latest tome to favored outlet Politico. The...

    ďIt is inaccurate to state that every single one of them was influenced by this hateful video." This statement is part of Hillary's 36 page "fog of war" chapter on Benghazi in her forthcoming memoir, a chapter obtained at least in part by Politico's Maggie Haberman, and it appears to be indicative of how she filled those 36 pages without answering any of the crucial questions about the events of that night and the following day. This line refers to the killers. And this line is of course a straw man, easily recognized after the president's straw man Woodstock at...

    If you ever wondered what the real political issue of the day is when it comes to presidential politics, an article in Politico gives you the answer. Wall Street Big Money wants a presidential candidate who will allow the financial games enabling hedge fund billionaires, investment banks, and other financial engineering specialists to continue their merry ways. This group dominates the top one percent of the top once percent of income earners Ė the people who have expanded their share of national income, while the rest of the one percent (and the rest of us) get to divvy up the...

    The permanent political class and their donors think a Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton battle in 2016 would be a win-win scenario, and many Republican Wall Street donors would rather have Clinton in the White House than Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) or Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). According to a Politico report, "the darkest secret in the big money world of the Republican coastal elite is that the most palatable alternative to a nominee such as Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas or Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky would be Clinton." ďIf it turns out to be Jeb versus Hillary we would...
