  • Victor Davis Hanson: Regime Change by Any Other Name?

    NRO ^ | Victor Davis Hanson
    Election machines in three states were not hacked to give Donald Trump the election. There was never a serious post-election movement of electors to defy their constitutional duties and vote for Hillary Clinton. Nor, once Trump was elected, did transgendered people begin killing themselves in alarming numbers. Nor were there mass resignations at the State Department upon his inauguration. Nor did Donald Trump seek an order to “ban all Muslims” from entering the U.S. Instead, he temporarily sought a suspension in visas for everyone, regardless of religion, from seven Middle Eastern states that the Obama administration had earlier identified as...
  • Gregg Jarrett: What is Robert Mueller investigating (since collusion is not a crime)?

    Robert Mueller is tasked with finding a crime that does not exist in the law. It is a legal impossibility. As special counsel, Mueller can engage in all manner of spectacular jurisprudential gymnastics. However, it will not change the fact that colluding with Russia is not, under America’s criminal codes, a crime. It’s just not there. Maybe it should be. Perhaps someday Congress will pass a law criminalizing such conduct in political campaigns. But for now, there is not a single statute outlawing collaboration with a foreign government in a U.S. presidential election. Or any election, for that matter. Why,...
  • Most Say Media, Not Russians, Tilting the Election (Flashback, October 2016)

    05/23/2017 7:44:27 PM PDT · by Faith Presses On · 13 replies
    Most voters aren’t buying the story that the Russians are trying to manipulate the election for Donald Trump but think the U.S. media is trying to swing things for Hillary Clinton. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it’s more likely that many in the media are working to get Clinton elected president. Just 26% disagree and say it’s more likely that the Russian government is working to get Trump elected. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Ninety-one percent (91%) of voters supporting...
  • John Brennan Completely Contradicts FBI Director James Comey on Congressional Notification

    BUSTED !! Today former CIA Director John Brennan testified to congress on the Russian counter-intelligence operation which began in July 2016. Today, John Brennan completely contradicted the March 20th, 2017, testimony of former FBI Director James Comey. We have previously drawn attention to a particular part of former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to congress from March 20th. The issue is when was congressional leadership, specifically the congressional intelligence oversight group called the “Gang-of-Eight”, notified of the Russian investigation (a counter-intelligence operation). Pay close attention. On March 20th FBI Director James Comey -together with NSA head Admiral Mike Rogers- testified...

    RUSH: I can now conclude, I can announce I have my own investigation going, and I’m gonna tell you what. This isn’t about collusion with Russia anymore. There’s no “there” there. There’s no evidence. And even this dummkopf Brennan testified. What a bunch of obfuscation we’ve had to put up with from this guy, Obama’s CIA director. I mean, this guy’s been trying to say that Trump and the Russians colluded without saying it. “Are you saying –” “Well, I can’t say in open session.” “What do you mean by that?” “Well, I can’t go any further than that here.”...

    Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chief John Podesta attacked the First Amendment rights of the free press as he continued to spin his conspiracy theory of Russia colluding with American news websites to damage Democrats. During a conversation with the Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty, he cited the “participation and the support of the alt-right media,” naming “guys like Sean Hannity” and “disgusting” Newt Gingrich for helping spread “fake news” to hurt Democrats. He specifically criticized Hannity and Gingrich for asking questions about DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder and whether or not it had a connection with Wikileaks. Podesta explained that it...

    After the attacks of last week in which Trump was accused of doing something egregious by sharing classified info with the Russians, in which he was accused of asking Comey to cease an investigation, in which his Comey comments from a meeting with the Russians were leaked, and wherein a special counselor was appointed for the Russia investigation (with no proof of any crimes committed), it is clear more than ever that he is under assault.  The media thinks they smell blood in the water, and their usual attacks have gone from a 10 to 20. Turning on the television or looking online, there is obviously a lot of frustration with regard to leaks and concern with...

    WASHINGTON – Former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile is the high-ranking DNC representative who allegedly called police and the family of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich and demanded to know why a private investigator was “snooping” into Rich’s death, the private eye revealed to WND Monday. “The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile,” veteran homicide detective Rod Wheeler told WND. “Why shouldn’t I reveal who it was?”
  • Former CIA Director Tells Lawmakers About 'Very Aggressive' Russian Election Meddling

    Former CIA Director John Brennan told the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday that Russia "brazenly interfered in the 2016 election process," despite U.S. efforts to warn them off. Brennan testified in an open session of the committee, one of a handful of congressional committee now investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Brennan said he told his Russian counterpart, the head of Russia's FSB, last August that if Russia pursued its efforts to interfere, "it would destroy any near-term prospect for improvement in relations" between the two countries. He said Russia denied any attempts to interfere. In his opening statement, Brennan...

He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich. Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that the Internet Party may find helpful. I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics. “He wanted to change that from the inside.” I was referring to...

Meanwhile Paul Manafort, whose firm worked on Republican John McCain’s losing effort, and Tad Devine, a top strategist on the Democratic presidential campaigns of Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004, are consulting for Victor Yanukovych, the pro-Russian frontrunner in the polls.

    Rudy Giuliani has worked with both Donald Trump and James Comey ... and if push comes to shove over who's telling the truth, Rudy's squarely in Trump's corner. The former NYC mayor arrived at LAX Sunday, and the photog grilled him hard ... grilled him about the alleged Comey memo, Lindsey Graham's statement the probe is now a criminal investigation, Trump's poll numbers ... the works. Giuliani didn't flinch ... he's as solid a Trump supporter as they come.

    Air Force One touched down in Tel Aviv this morning a little after five o’clock on the east coast. The President and the First Lady quickly deplaned and were greeted by Prime Minister Netanyahu and his wife. It was one of the more friendly, informal initial greetings between world leaders I’ve seen in a while, with both men smiling broadly, shaking hands and joking about where they should stand for the pictures and in what order they should walk down the carpet. One microphone picked up the two leaders joking around with each other and Netanyahu saying that he...

    After a short, merciful weekend break from Trump–Russia scoops, the Associated Press reported this morning that Michael Flynn will decline a subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee, invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Already, Twitter is exploding with assertions that this “probably” means Flynn is guilty. Wouldn’t an innocent patriot in Flynn’s shoes want to tell the world his side of the story? Wouldn’t he want to clear his name? It’s tempting to think that only a man with something to hide refuses to testify — especially on a matter of national importance. But in this case, it would...

    OK, gang, time to move along – other stuff is more important. That's the logical strategy for the Democratic Party leadership to signal the base that the Russia conspiracy narrative has served its purpose and belongs in the Memory Hole. You don't want to go farther out on the limb of an unfounded charge dreamed up to explain away the failure of Hillary and her campaign henchpeople to pull off the expected victory. But such a judicious approach is not the métier of rabble-rouser Thomas Perez, the party chairman. Into the breach leaped Representative Keith Ellison, the consolation prize-holder of...

    Holy congressional probe, Robin! Former FBI chief Robert Mueller is the hero America needs to investigate Russia’s meddling into the 2016 presidential election, his former second-in-charge said Sunday. “A line in New York would be Batman’s back to save Gotham, but I think in this case, Batman is back to save America,” Timothy Murphy told John Catsimatidis during an interview on “The Cats Roundtable.” Murphy served as the agency’s deputy director under Mueller, who was named as a special counsel in the investigation this week, following James Comey’s ouster as FBI director. Murphy insisted any investigation headed by his old...
