    John Brennan rallied numerous high-powered defenders to his corner over his security clearance clash with President Trump, but some well-known special ops heroes are firing back suggesting the former CIA director got what he deserves. Kris “Tanto” Paronto, a former Army Ranger and private security contractor who was part of the CIA team that fought back during the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, accused Brennan of putting his “politics” before those in the field. “He is lucky the security clearance is all he is getting away with,” Paronto told Fox News in an interview on Friday. Responding a day earlier to...
  • Did Trump Really Save America From Socialism?

    American Spectator ^ | Steve Baldwin
    Americans need to understand that the shocking refusal by a major political party to accept the results of the last election and the onslaught of verbal, legal, and physical assaults the Democrats have engendered, are not specific to Donald Trump. In other words, it is now clear plans were made by Obama to exploit federal power during his presidency to give the Democrats control of our nation — perpetually. It really didn’t matter if Trump was the GOP nominee or not. In other words, the chaos we are witnessing today would not have been much different had, for example, Ted...

    NEW ORLEANS—Sterling Burnett doesn’t always want to sit next to someone he doesn’t know on a train, plane, or bus. But he’s willing to fight for the freedom of those same strangers when it comes time for them to purchase a motor vehicle. “What I care about is … your freedom to choose the vehicle of your choice,” Burnett, an environmental policy expert for the Heartland Institute, said during a panel discussion at the free-market think tank’s America First Energy Conference that took a critical look at fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks. “I don’t think government should be in...

    Full title: Gregg Jarrett: Ex-CIA Director Brennan shouldn't have a security clearance - He's a national security risk.Former CIA Director John Brennan is a serious national security risk, and President Trump was wise and correct to revoke his security clearance Wednesday. Brennan has repeatedly shown he cannot be trusted with classified or top-secret information. He has a history of leaking and exploiting confidential material for partisan reasons. Maybe it keeps him on TV, but it also jeopardizes national security. The primary job of the agency Brennan ran for President Obama is to collect, process, and analyze intelligence information from all...

    Reporting on Bruce Ohr suggests DOJ and FBI employees operated outside the chain of command and concealed evidence from congressional oversight committees. Investigative reporter John Solomon broke news last week of texts and emails between former associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr and Trump dossier author Christopher Steele regarding the Russia investigation, and revealed the content of notes Ohr took during a December meeting with Steele’s boss at Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson. Solomon’s reporting confirmed the FBI used Ohr to continue gathering information from Steele, even after the former British spy was terminated as a source by the bureau because...

    FLASHBACK: That Time Omarosa Was Fired from the Clinton White House Omarosa Manigault Newman is no stranger to failing in The White House. She became well known by television viewers of NBC’s hit show “The Apprentice” with Donald Trump. Now, after being let go for personal issues, she’s using that closeness to President Trump to make millions by calling her former boss a racist and a liar. She made the situation worse by illegally recording herself insecure parts of the White House. (RELATED: Omarosa Could be in Legal Trouble Over Secret White House Recordings). But this isn’t Omarosa’s first series...

    Only 468 days ago, this interesting story hit the internet, via Fox News. In those early, heady days of Trump Derangement Syndrome, Barack unveiled a model of the "Obama Presidential Center," which was to cover 17 acres of Jackson Park with about 200,000 square feet of office, library, and "communing spaces," and includes a 22-story-tall tower. Mrs. Clinton's "ventures" are a bit less ambitious, and consist mainly of announcing that she's working on a book (probably the one that became What Happened) and that she's available for speaking engagements; the article helpfully includes the name of the speaker's bureau that's...

    ANALYSIS Since President Trump took office, the economy is booming, according to such reliable sources as federal agencies, analysts and data from the private sector. That may not be good enough for the press, however. The news media is seeking to “rewrite history” to credit former President Barack Obama for this feat, says one major business publication. “The stronger the economy gets under Trump, the more desperate his critics are to hand credit over to Obama. Even if that entails changing the past,” says an Investor’s Business Daily editorial. “A recent New York Times story says it all: ‘An economic...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A Parma Heights man who spent 22 years in prison before President Barack Obama granted him clemency is headed back to prison for a separate drug case. Antwon Rogers, 47, pleaded guilty Wednesday to drug possession, a third-degree felony, in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court. Judge Michael Shaughnessy sentenced him to nine months in prison. Rogers could spend additional time in prison if a federal judge determines the guilty plea constitutes a violation of the terms of his probation in a prior federal drug case. In that case, Rogers was sentenced to life in prison in January...

    On Sunday's episode of The $100,000 Pyramid on ABC a contestant made the mistake of mixing up former Taliban leader Osama bin Laden with Barack Obama. The game show, which pairs a contestant with a celebrity as they offer clues based on a topic for their partner to guess, saw the contestant in question, a new father named Evan Kaufman, paired with Saturday Night Live alum Tim Meadows. As Kaufman's round began, starting with the easiest topics at the bottom of the pyramid, the hint in question was "People Whose Last Name Is Obama." Instead of citing the former president...

He mocked former President Obama's dependence on "windmills," pointing out how windmills are dependent on the wind blowing and how easy it would be for enemies to knock windmills out. He called it "a killing field" for birds under the windmills too! . . . .

    The FBI has fired Agent Peter Strzok, who helped lead the bureau’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election until officials discovered he had been sending anti-Trump texts. Aitan Goelman, Strzok’s lawyer, said FBI Deputy Director David L. Bowdich ordered the firing on Friday — even though the director of the FBI office that normally handles employee discipline had decided Strzok should face only a demotion and 60-day suspension. Goelman said the move undercuts the FBI’s repeated assurances that Strzok would be afforded the normal disciplinary process. “This isn’t the normal process in any way more than name,” Goelman...

    [SNIP] Let’s compare the jobs numbers for Trump’s first 19 months in office with those of Obama’s last 19 months in the White House: * Employment Ratio: +0.73 percentage points, more than twice Obama’s +0.35 * Labor Force Participation: +0.22 percentage point vs. Obama’s -0.16 * FTE jobs: +4.1 million vs. +3.3 million under Obama * Average weekly wages: +$40.55 vs. +$31.21 under Obama The reason that the labor market is finally tightening is that Trump’s tax and regulatory policies are bringing real GDP (RGDP) growth back to levels that are historically normal for the U.S. Despite the Great Depression,...

    Despite numerous promises from congressional Democrats and President Barack Obama when they passed the Affordable Care Act in 2010, the health care law has created far more problems than it has solved. Premiums, deductibles, and health care choices have all worsened since Obamacare went into effect, and there’s no sign America’s health insurance system will improve anytime in the near future.President Trump inherited a health insurance crisis when he took office in January 2017, so he and congressional Republican leaders immediately began to work to implement their plan to replace Obamacare with a more market-centered approach to improving the...

    ... New Mexico is finally free of a back-room highway bond deal that kept then-Gov. Bill Richardson out of then-President-elect Barack Obama’s Cabinet once it was exposed. Back in 2004 and 2006, very few people understood what had been done to get $1.6 billion in state highway bonds used to start a bunch of highway projects and the Rail Runner commuter train. And even fewer knew why a company known as CDR Financial Products Inc. of Beverly Hills, was involved. The Richardson administration wanted the $1.6 billion in bonds to make a big splash on the state’s economy... But the...

    Holding Office From 'The Swamp' In today’s toxic environment found inside “the swamp,” I am often reminded of the old saw about evil flourishing when good people do nothing. I consider this a truism, an absolute, a defined value that is not zero. Unfortunately, I have had the opportunity to see this phenomenon up close and personal. As the Mueller investigation trundles along with the narrative unraveling at a shocking pace, one would think that sooner or later, the Congress would get fed up and would call a halt to this travesty. This investigation has cost the American people millions...
