    American Thinker ^ | November 9, 2018 | Michael Widlanski
    Reporters are supposed to hunt for facts, to search for the truth, and their best tool is a good question. Knowing a good question and knowing how and when to ask it are skills prized by the wisest members of society from Talmudic times in Judea to the philosophers of ancient Greece and China. As Hillel the Elder, the philosopher Socrates, and many other wise thinkers knew, great truths reveal themselves to those who ask good questions. Making a bold statement or throwing an insult or a challenge will get you an opportunity for a photo -- a “photo-op,” but...

    Washington Examiner ^ | August 11, 2018 09:04 AM | Updated Aug 11, 2018, 09:28 AM | Diana Stancy Correll
    President Trump questioned Saturday morning why the FBI had not provided conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch and others with text messages of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, warning he “may have to get involved.” “Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text messages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities. FBI said they won’t give up even one (I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY). What are they hiding? McCabe wife took big campaign dollars from Hillary people......,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning. “.....Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation, so badly damaged by Comey, McCabe,...

  • My Daughter Brought This Home From School. Seems Like Unusual To Ask A 1st Grader

    So my daughter brought this home from school. Seems like unusual questions to ask a 1st grader, especially the third question. Would they have asked the same questions while Obama was President?  My daughter knows who Trump is but we don’t talk politics with her because she’s 6. She’s being taught about honesty, respect, kindness, responsibility and hard work. Politics have no place at her age. Of course if she has questions I answer in terms & words she understands.  To ask these questions seems like indoctrination or propaganda research to me. How would a 6 year old form an...

    Complete Headline: Questions for Chelsea since she advocated putting a corrupt serial abuser of women back in the White House Since Chelsea thinks it is appropriate to ask a daughter very personal questions, and since Chelsea is an adult and was very involved in trying to put her parents back in the White House in 2016, here are some questions for her: Do you think your mom was smart enough to know that she should have used government computers and should not have intentionally destroyed documents? Do you believe that your mom should have paid $10 million to produce a...
  • Questions about the Memo(Vanity)

    02/04/2018 11:36:04 AM PST · by janetjanet998 · 12 replies
    I have a couple of questions about what isn't in the Memo: 1) The FISA warrant was approved/renewed FOUR different times. Was the same "evidence" brought up in the renewals that was in the original approval or was other info added as time went on? Rep Rafliffe(sp?) was on Fox this morning saying he saw the applications for all four and loosely implied the dossier was the key for all Four. If the Dossier was the main factor in all FOUR then why didn't Memo make that clear. The media is spinning "there was to be more" since it was...
  • Worries Grow That the Price of Bitcoin Is Being Propped Up

    NYT ^ | JAN. 31, 2018 | By NATHANIEL POPPER
    A growing number of virtual currency investors are worried that the prices of Bitcoin and other digital tokens have been artificially propped up by a widely used exchange called Bitfinex, which has a checkered history of hacks and opaque business practices. In December, Bitfinex was subpoenaed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, a United States regulatory agency. The news, first reported by Bloomberg on Tuesday and confirmed by a source familiar with the subpoena but not allowed to publicly discuss an ongoing investigation, led to a sell-off in most virtual currencies. -- Didn't know about Bitfinex until reading this article....

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/29/2017 | Kyle Feldscher
    New York Rep. Peter King wants special counsel Robert Mueller to come to Congress to explain why the FBI didn’t sound the alarm louder about a deal to sell a company in control of uranium reserves to a Russian company. King said Sunday on Fox News that Mueller, who was FBI director from 2001-2013, has some questions to answer about the deal that saw a Russian state-controlled company buy Uranium One, a company that controlled 20 percent of American uranium reserves. The deal had to be approved by nine American government agencies, including Hillary Clinton’s State Department, and went through...
  • Hotel Questions Revised Timeline Of Las Vegas Massacre

    AP via CNBC ^ | 10/11/17
    Authorities revised the timeline of mass shooter Stephen Paddock's actions leading up to the deadliest mass shooting in American history. Parent company of the Mandalay Bay, the hotel in which Paddock perched during the shooting, questioned the new timeline, which says Paddock shot a hotel guard minutes before the mass shooting itself. The new account opens the possibility that the attack may have been mitigated or prevented altogether. A day after authorities revised the timeline of events on the night of the Las Vegas mass shooting, the hotel where the gunman was staying is casting doubt on the changes. Police...

    Doddering, feeble, incompetent, and paranoid Imagine you’re Hillary Clinton. Your entire life is spent hiding the basic truths of your existence. You lie about your resume, your husband, your career, your money, your foundation, your scandals, and your agenda. Nothing - absolutely nothing - you present to the American people is genuine, aside from your contempt for those who dare defy you. That means you have to live out your days in a massive bubble of fear and paranoia. Let’s face it. At any moment, you could blow it all. Someone could ask you a tough question, and you could...

    Here are four things Clinton will have to think about. What is her goal? Debate coaches say one of the biggest mistakes a presidential candidate can make is misunderstanding what a presidential debate is and is not. It's not a forum to score policy points (a Clinton strength). Instead, it's a contest of character and demeanor. Everyone knows that Clinton is knowledgeable and competent. Now, she needs to use the debate to show she's also authentic and relatable. [Snip] How does she deal with the burden of high expectations? ... The bar for Donald Trump is relatively low — he...

    As Hillary Clinton's health moves from the fringes to the center of the 2016 presidential campaign, there's a lot we still don't know about her scare this weekend. [Snip] Here are nine big questions we still have: Why hide the pneumonia diagnosis? Has Clinton been otherwise ill in recent days? Who made the call not to go to the hospital and when? What is the campaign's position on the protective press pool? Will Clinton allow a true protective pool if elected president? Does Clinton accept the obligation to inform the public about her health? How will this change her schedule...

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton greeted the press who are traveling on her new airplane on Monday morning and took a few questions. Clinton, under pressure for not holding a press conference for nearly 280 days, was peppered with questions like, "How was your Labor Day weekend?" Another question: "Are you ready?" "Do you have a Labor Day message?" one reporter asked. "I do, you'll hear it," Clinton answered. "I definitely, I definitely do. If you want more happy Labor Days, you know who to vote for." "Thanks, I'll come back later," Clinton said as she exited the cabin that...
