  • The Antithesis of Obstruction (Must Read)

    National Review ^ | 6/24/2017 | ANDREW C. MCCARTHY
    Trump did not obstruct a valid FBI investigation; he demanded the exposure of a false one. The “collusion” narrative was a fraud, plain and simple. We know that now. Hopefully, it won’t take another six months to grasp a second plain and simple truth: Collusion’s successor, the “obstruction” narrative, is a perversion. The Left loves narrative. The ever-expanding story manipulates time, space, and detail to fit a thematic framework. Political narrative has some surface appeal, but it is deeply flawed. It obscures plain and simple truth. So let’s stick with the plain and simple: The essence of obstruction is to...
  • Was Obama Really Scandal Free?

    While speaking in Peru for an international summit, President Obama bragged that his administration has been, allegedly, scandal-free during his presidency. "I'm extremely proud of the fact that over 8 years we have not had the kinds of scandals that have plagued other administrations." He's actually serious about this. And it appears that it's a goal of the Obama administration to push this claim in an attempt to frame the outgoing president's legacy. During an interview with CNN which aired on Sunday, President Obama's top aide, Valerie Jarrett, claimed that Obama is proud of himself because his administration has been "scandal-free."...
  • Dishonest Maddow: In Obama Administration, 'There Was Never a Major Scandal'

    If an administration is rife with scandal, and no one is around to cover it, is it still a scandal-ridden administration? Rachel Maddow, back Tuesday night from the illness that had kept her off of the air for over a week, apparently thinks not. Speaking of the Obama administration, she claimed: “It's definitely true that in modern times almost every president has hired outside legal counsel. Almost every modern president has relied on private lawyers to help him respond to whatever scandal that administration is facing. President Obama, I should mention, is an exception to that. President Obama had a...

    Shame on Stephen Colbert for falsely implying that Obama’s biggest “scandals” consisted of chewing gum and putting his feet on the desk! In this video, Stephen Colbert falsely implies that Obama’s biggest “scandals” consisted of chewing gum, putting his feet on the desk, having a member of the military hold an umbrella for him, saluting while holding a latte, bowing in front of foreign leaders, reaching above a sneeze guard, and wearing a tan suite:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDIoiTyK7S0However, none of those things are on my list of Obama’s real, actual scandals.I dare Stephen Colbert and any other Obama supporters to read my list, to...

    Ex-president racked up BIG LIST of outrageous abuses of executive power! “Impeach!” It’s been more than eight years since Democrats uttered that word – long enough for anyone to wonder if it was still in their vocabulary, considering the deafening silence through the dozens of serious scandals during President Obama’s administration – but now that President Trump is the man in the White House, it’s back with a vengeance. {..snip..}

    RUSH: I told you yesterday to stop watching the media, that you are not getting an accurate picture. The media’s not even doing what they’re doing… (sigh) Well, it’s a bit of a stretch to say they’re not doing it for national consumption; they, of course, are. But it is really inside-the-Beltway here, because that’s where power is in their minds and that’s where any effective change they want will take place. So the primary objective of the Drive-By Media is to flood the zone in the nation’s capital with this never-ending badgering of “Trump out of control,” “White House...

While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made a personal call to pressure Bangladesh’s prime minister to aid a donor to her husband’s charitable foundation despite federal ethics laws that require government officials to recuse themselves from matters that could impact their spouse’s business.

    Alabama Governor Robert Bentley has been on the ropes for a while now. The origins of the story all boil down to allegations of improper relations with an aide which… Okay. Let’s just say it. The guy cheated on his wife with one of his staffers before divorcing her and she was less than thrilled with his behavior. Since that doesn’t technically qualify as breaking the law, you’d normally not see him getting the boot from his job unless the voters decided to do it in the next election. But the initial deed led to some complicating factors which the...

    Are the elements of the former Obama administration orchestrating another civil war? Former Attorney General issued a video on behalf of Senate Democrats urging Americans to resist in the time of “fear and uncertainty for so many people.” Lynch lamented “our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back,” according to the hostage-like video. She said it’s required “work” to “achieve the ideals of our Founding Fathers.” “It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the...

    The dots are slowly being connected regarding the Obama surveillance scandal, and it’s not looking good for Barack. The evidence is mounting there was a massive conspiracy to hurt President Trump. On June 27th of 2016, Bill Clinton met secretly with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. This scandal, with so many unanswered questions, has not been resolved. Lynch did recuse herself from the Clinton email scandal. However new evidence suggests that meeting wasn’t about whether Hillary would go to prison, but one with a more insidious intent. Right after this meeting, Loretta Lynch...

    Politico reported on Monday that many influential Democrats are floating Labor Secretary Thomas Perez as a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton, despite his history of scandals. Perez endorsed Clinton in December and has campaigned for her in recent weeks. Political insiders speculate that Perez would help Clinton shore up portions of the liberal base that she has lost to her socialist rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), in nearly half of the primaries. Perez would also bring diversity to the ticket, since both Clinton and Sanders are elderly white people.

    Donald Trump hasn’t even been sworn-in yet but the liberal media has obsessed almost over every Trump tweet and controversy. Conversely, Barack Obama’s administration has been full of scandals and gaffes but liberal reporters have insisted that his record is clean as a whistle.  Former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw, after Obama’s January 10 farewell speech gushed: “He’s been scandal free, frankly, in the White House. We haven’t had that what for a while.” Time magazine’s Joe Klein, back in December declared there has been “absolutely no hint of scandal” during his eight years. And in 2013 reporters...
