  • FLASHBACK: CitiGroup Chose Obama's Cabinet

    11/18/2016 7:12:17 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 9 replies
    In 2008 Michael B. Froman, then Citigroup executive, sends John Podesta a list of cabinet members. The email is dated Oct. 6, 2008 and bears the subject line “Lists.” It went to Podesta a month before he was named chairman of President-Elect Obama’s transition team. Froman’s list proved remarkably prescient. As it proposed, Robert Gates, a Bush holdover, became secretary of Defense; Eric Holder became attorney general; Janet Napolitano, secretary of Homeland Security; Rahm Emanuel, White House chief of staff; Susan Rice, United Nations ambassador; Arne Duncan, secretary of Education; Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Human Services; Peter Orszag,...
  • Janet Napolitano sues Trump’s DHS to preserve her DACA amnesty

    The woman who created the 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers filed a lawsuit Friday protesting the Trump administration’s move to phase out the program, saying the decision was done on President Trump’s executive “whim.” Janet Napolitano, who as President Obama’s Homeland Security secretary created the DACA program, is now the president of the University of California, and is leading the school system’s lawsuit demanding the program be reinstated. She said her school system stands to lose money and the chance to educate some of its 4,000 illegal immigrant students, as well as perhaps having to let go its illegal immigrant...
  • Judge Napolitano: Don Jr.'s Meeting With the Russians Warrants Criminal Investigation

    Fox News' chief judicial analyst disagrees with President Donald Trump's contention that his son's June 2016 meeting with Russian operatives in expectation of getting dirt on Hillary Clinton is standard practice in American politics. Judge Andrew Napolitano said on America's Newsroom Monday morning that Team Trump's actions were "suspicious" and actually warranted a criminal investigation. It is a crime to receive "something of value" from a foreign person or government, Judge Nap declared. So if Don Jr. had accepted damaging material about Clinton from the Russians, "that would have been a felony," Napolitano explained. He added that "that would have...

    The now public rebuke of the NSA by the FISC is extraordinary, but it is also a farce. The FISC is virtually owned by the NSA. That court has granted 99.9 percent of requests made by the NSA since the court was created. Despite all the public revelations, the FISC looks the other way at non-FISC-authorized NSA spying. The judges of the FISC have become virtual clerks for the NSA. And the FISC has become an unconstitutional joke. Where does all this leave us? It leaves us with a public recognition that we are the most spied-upon people in world...
  • Judge Napolitano: House didn't repeal ObamaCare, it endorsed it

    Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives crafted a partisan compromise bill that endorsed and reinforced the Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare. This was done notwithstanding claims to the contrary by President Donald Trump and the House Republican leadership, who want us to believe that this bill, if it becomes law, will effectively repeal and replace ObamaCare. ObamaCare is a stool with four problematic legs. The constitutional leg is the premise that the federal government has the lawful power to regulate the delivery of health care. The legal leg is the premise that the federal government is obliged to provide...
  • Audit: UC President Napolitano Hid $175 Million While Raising Tuition

    The California State Auditor issued a scathing report last week alleging that University of California President and former Obama Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano raised tuitions while her office hid $175 million. The cover page for State Auditor Elaine Howle’s 167-page audit report states bluntly that the UC president’s office “Failed to Disclose Tens of Millions in Surplus Funds, and Its Budget Practices Are Misleading.” The audit found that the UC spent $32.5 billion on expenses during the 2015-16 school year to fund 10 campuses, five medical centers, and its Office of the President headquarters. Although the UC states...

    Judge Napolitano spoke out about a secret truth he knew, but FOX NEWS fired him anyway! Instead of taking his word for it, they walked him out the door. That was a sad picture, and I am so happy he is back. Most of us know the Judge is one of the most honorable and most trustworthy people in the world. I hope FOX learned a lesson and will respect Napolitano for his honesty and legal expertise. In March, Napolitano claimed President Obama went outside of American chain-of-command to British Intelligence to spy on Trump and his Transition Team. When...

    Donald Trump set the media into a frenzy on March 4 when he Tweeted in the morning that Obama had "wiretapped him."  The Tweets read as follows: Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism! Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW! How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! This...

    “Yes, I do and the sources stand by it,” Napolitano said when asked if he’s sticking by the story. “And the American public needs to know more about this rather than less because a lot of the government surveillance authority will expire in the fall and there will be a great debate about how much authority we want the government to have to surveil us, and the more the American public knows about this the more informed their and the Congress’ decision will be.” He added that “a lot more is going to come” on the issue. “He used GCHQ....

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Fox News Channel legal analyst Andrew Napolitano returned to the air Wednesday, saying he stood by his claim about spying on President Donald Trump that got him benched by the network for more than a week. Napolitano had said on Fox that British intelligence officials had helped former President Barack Obama spy on Trump. Britain denied it, and Fox anchor Shepard Smith said the network knows of no evidence that Trump had been under surveillance. Fox said on March 21 that it was taking Napolitano off the air for an indefinite period. Back Wednesday morning, he...

    Judge Andrew Napolitano spoke on Fox News, Wednesday, making his first appearance on the network after pushing a controversial report in defense of President Trump‘s claims of wiretapping during the 2016 election. Anchors Bret Baier and Shepard Smith previously said that Fox could not independently confirm the accuracy of Napolitano’s claim that the British intelligence service GCHQ facilitated the wiretapping. During Napolitano’s spot on America’s Newsroom today, Bill Hemmer noted that “you’ve had a few quiet days.” ALSO ON MEDIAITEShep Smith: ‘Fox News Cannot Confirm Judge Napolitano’s Commentary’ Hemmer then asked the judge whether he was still confident in the...

    Judge Andrew Napolitano may be temporarily sidelined at Fox News, but he’s been telling friends and associates that he could be in for a big promotion — to the Supreme Court. After meeting with President Trump twice during the transition, first in December and again in mid-January, the Newark, N.J.-born television personality told several people that Trump said he was on the list of judges from whom he was selecting a nominee for the high court. “He said, ‘Trump said I’m on the list,’” said a source who spoke with Napolitano shortly after one of his meetings with the then...

    Media suspensions have always fascinated me. In four decades of broadcasting, I’ve seen people benched for offenses large and small, and I’ve usually found the suspensions are not so much a sincere reflection of an employer’s genuinely wounded sensibilities, but rather a positioning statement designed to send a message to the general public. So against that backdrop, I watched with interest the dispatching this week of two conservative TV figures with fervent fan bases. The first was Tomi Lahren, who exploded onto the media landscape last year from her outpost at TheBlaze, Glenn Beck’s multimedia empire. Sharp, rapid-fire conservatism from...

    Fox News has pulled legal analyst Andrew Napolitano off the air over a claim he made that British intelligence wiretapped the Trump Tower during the 2016 election at the behest of former President Barack Obama. Fox has not yet issued a public statement on his status as of Monday. The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times reported that Fox sources told them that Napolitano, a judge, would not appear on the air anytime in the near future.

    The MSM are exultant. They imagine Judge Andrew Napolitano’s metaphorical (and distinctive) scalp hanging on a peg somewhere. A taboo has been established and enforced. John Koblin of the New York Times deadpans: Andrew Napolitano, the senior legal analyst for Fox News, has been temporarily sidelined following his unproved assertion last week that former President Barack Obama had asked for British assistance in spying on Donald J. Trump, a person briefed on the decision said on Monday.

    Fox News has reportedly pulled Andrew Napolitano from the air indefinitely after he made claims that a British intelligence agency had wiretapped Trump Tower. Napolitano, a Fox News analyst, is not scheduled to appear on the network in the near future, the Los Angeles Times reported, according to people familiar with the situation. Last week, Napolitano made the claims about the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) spying on Trump at former President Barack Obama's behest. White House press secretary Sean Spicer then quoted Napolitano's remarks while defending the president's claims earlier this month that the former president had wiretapped Trump Tower...

    This is mind-numbing: Revisiting the issue that helped spur her ouster from Congress three years ago, Rep. Cynthia Mc­Kinney led a Capitol Hill hearing Friday on whether the Bush administration was involved in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The eight-hour hearing, timed to mark the first anniversary of the release of the Sept. 11 commission's report on the attacks, drew dozens of contrarians and conspiracy theorists who suggest President Bush purposely ignored warnings or may even have had a hand in the attack — claims participants said the commission ignored.That, in and of itself, is nothing unusual for...

    The source of a Fox News commentator's claim that then-President Barack Obama enlisted British intelligence to spy on Donald Trump during the recent election campaign is reportedly the same man who propagated the baseless claim that Michelle Obama used a racial slur against white people. Larry C. Johnson, a former CIA intelligence officer, told Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano that Obama used the GCHQ, Britain's high-tech global listening post that monitors communications around the world, to spy on Trump, according to The New York Times. Johnson called the Times at Napolitano's behest. He confirmed to the newspaper that...
