  • IG Report: Pro-Trump FBI Agent Texted ‘Start Looking For New Jobs Fellas’

    On the day after the 2016 election, a pro-Trump FBI agent texted another, saying that “shit just got real” and joked that some people would have to “start looking for new jobs,” DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz’s report released Monday reveals. According to the report, the handling agent, the co-case handling agent, and the special agent for one of the FBI’s Confidential Human Source (CHS), were all fans of Donald Trump, and exchanged text messages about their support. On November 9, 2016, the special agent texted, “if you hear talk of a special prosecutor…I will volunteer to work [on] the...

    Republicans are dramatically outspending Democrats on impeachment-related ads on Facebook and television, illustrating how fully the GOP has embraced the issue as a political winner as public opinion remains split on the House effort to remove the president.

    erRedditPinterestLinkedInEmail SAN DIEGO — Congressman Duncan Hunter said in a statement Friday that he will resign after the holidays. “Shortly after the Holidays I will resign from Congress,” the statement read. “It has been an honor to serve the people of California’s 50th District, and I greatly appreciate the trust they have put in me over these last 11 years.” The announcement came just one day after the House Ethics Committee urged Hunter in a letter to stop voting on legislation and other issues on the House floor. News of Hunter’s resignation was expected after the congressman changed his plea...
  • Mooch Scaramucci Says Congressional GOP like Vichy Nazi Collaborators

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Let's be clear: Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci wants you to know he isn't comparing congressional Republicans to Hitler—just to the people who collaborated with Hitler! Scaramucci was back on CNN this morning for one of his regular Trump-bashing fests with Alisyn Camerota. The Mooch is of course President Trump's quondam communications director, who, having been defenestrated after a tenure record-breaking for its brevity, has turned into one of the president's most bitter antagonists. Scaramucci vilified the congressional Republicans supporting President Trump as "Vichy Republicans," thus analogizing them to the French collaborators with the Nazis. That was too much even for...

    Apparently, it's not enough that leftist hedge fund billionaire and 'stateless statesman' George Soros and his non-government organization front groups made a lunge to take over much of eastern Europe, visibly in the case of Ukraine during the Maidan revolution. Nor is the Soros seeding of first the Obama administration, and then the Trump administration, with former operatives of his from other outfits. Some, in the case of Trump, are now testifying as witnesses in the impeachment hearings. Now, the Soros cash is rising to flood levels, targeting GOP Congress members to vote in support of impeaching Trump. Here's the...

    FULL TITLE: BREAKING: Anti-Trump CIA ‘Whistleblower’ Ciaramella Panicked After Caught Lying on ICIG Complaint: Tried to Revamp Statement on Oct. 8 After He Was Caught on Oct. 2 A photo of CIA whistleleaker Eric Ciaramella shaking Barack Obama’s hand in the Oval Office was published on a close friend’s wedding site last year. The photo was obtained by the Washington Examiner and it again suggests Eric Ciaramella is a political hack with a partisan Trump-hating agenda. Eric Ciaramella is a 33-year-old CIA officer who was planted inside the White House by ex-CIA chief John Brennan to spy on Trump and...

    With the likely conclusion of Rep. Adam Schiff’s impeachment proceedings, it’s worth taking a step back and looking at how things went for the majority Democrats and minority Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.Democrats ideally would have started their inquiry with credible bipartisan support and run things in such a way that public opinion developed in their favor. Public opinion would build pressure on Republican members toward an impeachment vote that had even stronger bipartisan credibility.That did not come even close to happening. To begin with, not only was the vote to begin proceedings not bipartisan,...

    When it comes to trashing President Trump, there's nothing nastier than an "MSNBC Republican"--the ilk whose livelihood depends on dishing out a dependable stream of bile about the president. On today's Morning Joe, MSNBC Republican Elise Jordan did her best to promote her job security, calling the president "a classic scumbag." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    PJ Media ^ | 11/14/2019 | Victor Davis Hanson
    From 1967 to 2019, Republicans controlled the California governorship for 31 of 52 years. So why is there currently not a single statewide Republican officeholder? California also has a Democratic governor and Democratic supermajorities in both houses of the state legislature. Only seven of California's 53 congressional seats are held by Republicans. In 1994, then-Gov. Pete Wilson backed Proposition 187, which denied state social services to undocumented immigrants. The spin goes that it backfired, alienated the Hispanic community and thus marked the road to Republican perdition. Not quite. Prop 187 passed with 59 percent support. Wilson's endorsement of the bill...

    Democrats appear to have lost at least three and as many as five seats in the New Jersey Legislature, including the only Senate race on the ballot. And they did not flip any of the three districts they were targeting in this year’s election, which took place yesterday. With 100% of districts reporting, Republicans captured the Senate seat in the southernmost 1st District, as well as both Assembly seats there. They also held a smaller lead in the neighboring 2nd, a split district with a Republican senator that includes Atlantic City. That race, however, had not been called with fewer...

    Given the federal government's accumulated $23 trillion national debt and current year projected deficit of nearly a trillion dollars, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced an appropriations amendment that would cut 2% from next year's planned federal spending in the departments of commerce, science, justice, transportation, housing, urban development, agriculture; and interior. The Senate rejected this proposal by a 67-24 margin. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the top Democrat on the Senate Appropriations Committee, urged a vote against Paul's measure, saying that "taking a meat ax to the federal budget is contrary to what the American voters want. Every dollar requested by...

    (CNN)Mark Zaid, an attorney for the anonymous whistleblower whose allegations about President Donald Trump's dealings with Ukraine ignited the House impeachment inquiry into the President, said Sunday he offered to have Republican lawmakers submit questions to his client directly without having to go through the committee's Democratic majority. The whistleblower previously offered to answer lawmakers' questions under oath and in writing if they were submitted by the House Intelligence Committee as a whole. This new offer would be a direct channel of communication with the Republicans who are in the minority on that committee. Republican leadership has complained that the...

    The more concrete the testimony in the impeachment inquiry, the more solidly Republicans are sticking with President Donald Trump. Witness after witness in closed-door House hearings is corroborating the core facts that Democrats say make a strong case against the president. Trump pressured Ukraine, an American ally, for an investigation of Joe Biden, his family and the Democrats. At the same time, the Trump administration withheld military assistance for the young democracy as it confronted Russian aggression.

    After weeks of behind-closed doors testimony and years of hoping for this day, the Democratic-led House of Representatives finally passed an official vote formalizing its ongoing impeachment inquiry, thus paving the way for public hearings and testimony about whether or not President Donald Trump committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” in his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. While the only “bi-partisan” aspect of that vote went to the “no’s,” with two Democrats voting with the GOP, it looks like the wheels of impeachment are finally beginning to officially grind toward what we all knew, ever since Democrats won...

    The House’s resolution should have been the easiest for Republicans to go along with. None of them did. So this is how the impeachment of President Donald Trump is going to go. The House this morning cast its first vote in a process that could lead to just the third Senate impeachment trial of a president in U.S. history. When Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced plans for the vote earlier this week, there was at least some promise of drama: Which House Democrats would defect? How many Republicans might defy Trump to back a formal impeachment inquiry that a few of...

    When Senate Republicans drafted a resolution condemning the House for hearing witness testimony behind closed doors while excluding Republicans in violation of the President’s Due Process rights, beyond the scrutiny of cross examination and the rules of evidence, and then demanded the House conduct a formal vote and provide Due Process protections as well as minority participation, cheers rang out among rank and file Republicans: Senate Republicans finally threw away their tiddlywinks and actually stepped things up by bringing a knife to the Democrats’ gun fight! Not unsurprisingly, the positive yields from punching back versus simply taking it have been...
