  • Russian Appeasement was a Left-Wing Monopoly

    02/03/2022 4:30:00 AM PST · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | February 3, 2022 | Victor Davis Hanson
    One way of understanding the 2009-2014 Obama Administration policy of "reset" with Vladimir Putin's Russia is to recall two iconic incidents. The first was the 2009 "reset." Newly appointed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that she would pursue a "reset" detente with Russia. America would relax the prior Bush Administration's mild ostracism of Russia after its 2008 invasion of Georgia and softly start anew. The second was President Barack Obama's hot mic moment in March 2012 in Seoul, South Korea. Obama got caught asking Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to reassure Vladimir Putin. Or as Obama put it: "After my...
  • Neocons, Neolibs & NATO Inch Us Closer To Nuclear War With Russia

    As this column pointed out in 2014, “the struggle for Ukraine” is a chapter in a series of US orchestrated provocations, which began with the expansion of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) eastward to abut Russia’s borders—an expansion begun by President Clinton and pursued by Bush and Obama alike. It gathered momentum with the US-backed attempts to incorporate Georgia and Ukraine into the North Atlantic alliance, forgetting that the Ukrainian people, not unlike the “American People,” are not one people. The country is riven—divided into Western and Eastern regions, respectively. The West has been seduced by potential EU membership; the...
  • Wrongly Imprisoned Real Estate Broker Demands Investigation of Ohio Prosecutors

    01/10/2022 5:15:10 AM PST · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | January 10, 2022 | Rachel Alexander
    The Obama administration targeted sole proprietors and small businesses in the real estate industry after the crash of 2008, while letting the big banks off the hook with bailouts. One of most horrific cases involved Republican real estate broker Tony Viola, who served nine and a half years in prison as a juicy target of Ohio Democratic prosecutor Dan Kasaris. He was convicted of supposedly tricking banks into offering mortgages with no money down. But in reality, the banks were knowingly offering those loans — evidence the prosecution withheld from him. Viola only got out of prison due to an...
  • Two Raids Offer a Window on Biden’s National Security Weakness

    10/27/2021 9:17:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | October 27, 2021 | John Ullyot
    Two years ago this week, President Donald Trump was in the White House Situation Room with his national security leadership team, monitoring developments in what became one of his many bold and successful moves in keeping the country safe, the nighttime raid by U.S. special operations forces on the world’s most wanted terrorist, Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Eight and a half years earlier, then-Vice President Joe Biden found himself in the White House Situation Room with President Barack 0bama and his national security leadership team, in their case monitoring developments in the nighttime raid on the world’s most...
  • Obama the Oppressor

    “Obama is another oppressor.” Those are not my words. Instead, they are the words of activist Julie Contreras, who “works with a group that runs shelters for undocumented children at the U.S./Mexico border.” Contreras joined with other Hispanic immigrants who opposed renaming two Chicago-area schools after Barack and Michelle Obama. Yes, they wanted the names changed, but not from one oppressor to another. The schools are currently named Thomas Jefferson Middle School and Daniel Webster Middle School, but since Jefferson owned slaves and Webster supported slavery, those names must go. Unfortunately, the Obamas are tainted too. “I will not be...

    <p>It’s a painful lesson we learned with the truth about what caused of deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods. Rice knowingly lied to cover up the mistakes made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then Vice President Biden and President Barack Obama, who failed to fulfil their duty and protect the lives of Americans overseas. Ambassador Rice made the rounds on five Sunday morning talk shows spreading lies of how the coordinated attack on a U.S. compound was sparked by a video no one ever saw nor heard.</p>
  • Biden Treasury Secretary Must Respect Financial Privacy

    01/12/2021 7:17:39 AM PST · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | January 12, 2021 | Brian Darling
    Few Americans fully realize the broad reach the Department of the Treasury uses to monitor international banking transactions. What’s even more opaque is how federal authorities also capture private information that is often disclosed to foreign governments, ones that do not have the same respect for privacy rights as we do in the U.S.Imagine the temptation for those strongarm leaders who are given the data. They can use that information to execute domestic goals that have zero to do with stopping illegal financial transactions but instead intimidate, even bankrupt businesses and advocacy groups that differ with that government’s agenda.If crafting...
  • When Whistleblowers Are Treated Like Criminals

    As a writer, I get a lot of pitches and stories sent to me. Somehow or another, writers end up on email lists for any number of candidates, fundraisers, causes, activist groups, etc. All those press releases and pitches can clutter up your inbox pretty quickly. And when you’ve been involved in politics for more than a couple of years, you get pitches from friends too. Not all of them work in the PR world, some just find an interesting story and have no outlet themselves to do anything with it. These aren’t scoops in the traditional sense, they’re just...
  • Obama Must Campaign for Biden, But He Won't Persuade Anyone

    10/31/2020 6:00:21 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | October 31, 2020 | Jeff Davidson
    Right up to November 3, Barack Obama absolutely must stay on the campaign trail for Joe Biden, for two fundamental reasons.  One, Joe Biden is incapable of campaigning for anything other than ultra-limited appearances of short duration. Biden’s handlers know that every time he speaks for more than a few minutes, even a few miles away from home, he loses thousands of voters. Two, more compelling for Obama, he must cover his own tracks. Helping Biden get elected is the only possible way, however far-fetched that notion. Last August, it was revealed that Obama spied on the Trump campaign and knew...

    If the media is looking for a symbol of 'deviancy' in our politics that only '[makes] things worse,' they should stop looking at the press secretary and instead look in the mirror. New White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany isn’t letting so-called journalists get away with inane questions in the briefing room at the expense of real news, and the media don’t like it.This was on full display over the weekend during the latest media-Trump administration go-around, when McEnany sparred with reporters over the Obama administration’s malfeasance with regard to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.After a contentious exchange about...

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany schooled a reporter about Obamagate on Friday. The smug reporter asked the press secretary to name the specific elements of the crime that members of the Obama administration may have committed. After first acknowledging the lack of journalistic curiosity on the subject by the mainstream media, McEnany went through a list of possible crimes. "The Steele Dossier, funded by the Democratic National Committee, ... was used to obtain FISA warrants to listen in on conversations of people within the Trump campaign. There was the unmasking the identity of Michael Flynn, and we know that...
  • What We Still Don't Know About The Michael Flynn Case

    05/13/2020 6:33:07 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | May 13, 2020 | Byron York
    The Michael Flynn case will soon be over. It began on Jan. 24, 2017, just four days into the Trump administration, when two FBI agents went to the White House to interview Flynn, then the brand-new national security adviser. Ignoring protocol, they questioned him about a phone call he had a few weeks before, during the transition, with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. By the end of the year, Flynn had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in that interview. Now, the Justice Department has moved to drop the charges, and a judge will soon accept that decision. But before...
  • Simply the Worst Types of People

    There’s something to be said for determination, as the old saying goes. But determination is only a virtue when it’s coupled with honesty, both in execution and objective. Unfortunately, as we’re seeing in politics these days, the most determined people happen to be those with the least amount of honesty, and they also face the least consequences for it. Consequences are a quaint notion these days. For you kids out there, consequences are “the effect, result, or outcome of something occurring earlier.” Do poorly in school, abuse drugs, generally be a jackass, and you’re not very likely to make the...

    A friend emailed me recently to say that on May 1st, in his opening monologue, Tucker Carlson made the statement, ”You don’t want to live in a society where the most powerful agency in government imprisons people it doesn’t like. That is horrifying.” Our friend lamented that he wishes there is someone who could “get Steve’s story to Tucker” because what happened to Flynn is so similar to what happened to Steve, my husband – former pit bull Republican congressman from Texas. Numerous reports verify that Rep. Stockman was quite a fierce critic of and whistle-blower on the Obama administration....
  • Two Words Several Inspector Generals Should Expect to Hear From President Trump Fairly Soon

    04/08/2020 5:04:01 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 39 replies ^ | April 8, 2020 | Matt Vespa
    President Trump is reportedly about to clean house at the inspector general level. After defeating the Democratic Party’s shoddy impeachment push in February, it was clear that the administration needed to take a more aggressive approach in removing Obama-era inspector generals who the administration think is just acting as another arm in the deep state war against the Trump White House. They’re not wrong. Susan Crabtree at RealClearPolitics wrote that this is going to happen soon. It’s already begun, with Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence community, being given his pink slip last Friday evening. Atkinson was a...

    After weeks of ignoring the series of scandals surrounding former Vice President Joe BidenÂ’s son that surfaced during President Donald TrumpÂ’s impeachment trial, reporters are suddenly interested again as Biden reclaims his frontrunner status for the Democratic presidential nomination.The focus on Joe BidenÂ’s son, Hunter Biden, which never received adequate media attention in the first place, tapered off throughout the presidentÂ’s impeachment trial and became nearly absent by the time Senate proceedings got underway. In the same week Trump was acquitted, Joe BidenÂ’s presidential hopes began to plummet following a poor performance in the Iowa caucuses. BidenÂ’s chances of becoming...

    Last week, President Trump triggered the left when he tweeted a Photoshopped picture that portrayed former President Barack Obama perched midair outside Trump Tower, binoculars and listening device in hand.The liberal outlet Vox condemned the president for his “increasingly bad tweets,” before declaring “there’s no evidence the Obama administration spied on Trump.” Vox then regurgitated the false narrative that, while the FBI did surveil former Trump foreign policy advisor Carter Page, “that didn’t happen until after Page left the campaign.” For years, conservatives tried to correct the record, noting that a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) order gave the...
  • Where are the Prosecutions for Fast and Furious?

    It's been about 10 years since the public discovered Fast and Furious, the gun walking operation conducted by the ATF under the Obama administration. The ATF arranged for straw buyers to purchase guns from American gun stores and transfer them to arms traffickers who would give them to drug cartels in Mexico. Ostensibly, the ATF would then track down the cartels. But they lost track of the guns, and some were used to kill Americans. Yet where are the prosecutions of the Obama officials who ran it? The victims and their families have never received justice. But they're looking into...

    Who do we believe? The CIA director or the people ideologically dedicated to protecting Obama's precious Iran deal? When watching the Obama team -- whether they are anchoring CNN coverage or mouthing off on MSNBC -- it is striking just how invested they are in denying reality. After Iran launched its functionally impotent attack against American positions in Iraq, Trump rightly pointed out the Obama administration helped Iran launch those missiles. The pushback from media fact checkers and Obama surrogates was fast and furious -- and also more dedicated to protecting Obama than the truth. The truth is that the...
  • WATCH: Susan Rice Flat Out Lies About the Obama Admin's Opportunity to Kill Soleimani

    President Donald Trump gave the order to kill Iran's Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani a few days ago following a Hezbollah mob's attacks on the United States' embassy in Baghdad. Now that Soleimani is dead, we're learning that this isn't the first opportunity a nation has had to kill the Iranian terrorist. In fact, Israel was "on the verge" of killing Soleimani back in 2015 but the Obama administration put a stop to it. The administration alerted Iranian officials about Israel's plans and their close tracking of the military leader.Despite what we know, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice told MSNBC's Rachel...
