    Newsweek ^ | November 7, 2016 | By Kurt Eichenwald
    James Comey should not simply be fired as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He must be barred forever from any form of public service. In the last 10 days, Comey has whipsawed the election for president of the United States. Now we know he did it for no reason. When his agents found information that suggested there were emails on a laptop that might have relevance to the investigation of Hillary Clinton and her email servers, Comey did not wait until he knew even a scintilla of information before announcing it to the world. Reasonably, lots of voters...
  • The UniParty Congressional Swamp’s Meaningless Political FBI/NSA Hearing… Posted

    Conservative Treehouse ^ | March 20, 2017 | Sundance
    The Congressional Intelligence Committee  hearing today was everything we anticipated it would be.  Which is to say it was: insufferable political posturing, pandering and circular parseltongue swirling the drain of non-intellectual gobbledygook. These types of congressional hearings are perfect feed pellets for media pundits to blather endlessly, wax philosophically, and engage in long-winded academic esoteric analyses contrasting the implied meanings of stop signs.  However, they are ridiculous for all other purposes. That said, against the backdrop of the espoused intention, and with full acceptance of the historic UniParty Benghazi hearings driven intentionally into the pit of nothingness, prayerfully I’m not...

    The Daily Caller ^ | March 20, 2017 | Peter Hasson
    The Blaze has suspended political commentator Tomi Lahren, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Daily Caller. In her appearance on The View, Lahren said she is pro-choice and called pro-lifer conservatives hypocrites, saying, “I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies.” Lahren’s denouncement of pro-lifers sparked a backlash from her coworkers, as well as other prominent conservatives. In her typical adversarial style, Lahren fired back at critics on Twitter, saying, “I speak my truth. If you don’t...

  • Insurers weigh a simpler, cheaper treatment for artery disease: supervised workouts

    That is on the cusp of changing, experts say, because of a long-awaited proposal from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to cover what’s known as supervised exercise therapy — a program of graduated exercise with the help of an exercise physiologist, which is currently covered after certain kinds of cardiac events, but not for PAD. The CMS proposal was triggered by an official request from the American Heart Association in September and is now open for public comment. So far, the input — mostly from specialists — has been overwhelmingly positive, making it likely that the change will...

    RUSH: I have a question. It’s an open-ended question to which there are answers, but I just want to ask them. If we think back to all of these media leaks and stories that there have been, from… Let’s just say since the election. We’ve had stories indicating a serious investigation of the Trump campaign and its ties to Russia. We’ve had unnamed intelligence officials — IC, intelligence community officials — saying this or that or the other thing. They’re unnamed. It’s the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN. And, of course, the three networks — ABC, CBS, NBC —...

    On Monday, the Texas Senate considered several abortion-related bills, including Senate Bill 415, a bill that would effectively ban a safe and common procedure used for second trimester abortions, which anti-choice legislators have taken to calling a “dismemberment abortion ban.” It passed and will now head to the House. The Senate also inched forward with Senate Bill 25 ― the bill that would effectively allow doctors to lie to pregnant women if they detect a fetal anomaly and are concerned their patient might have an abortion ― and that will head for a final vote on the floor soon. But...
  • What can we expect from Neil Gorsuch as a Supreme Court Justice?

    Kelly Shackelford, president and CEO of First Liberty Institute, stopped by “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” Monday morning to preview Judge Neil Gorsuch’s impending Senate confirmation hearing on his appointment to the Supreme Court. Gorsuch would fill the seat of Antonin Scalia, who passed away unexpectedly while on vacation in West Texas in February 2016. Barack Obama and Senate Democrats attempted to fill the seat with their own nominee, Merrick Garland, but were blocked by the GOP under the leadership of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R–KY). Garland’s nomination was left pending for 293 days until it expired with the...

    There may be no one with whom partisans on both sides of the political divide have a more conflicted relationship with than FBI Director James Comey. During the 2016 election cycle, he served for partisan liberals and conservatives as, at varying points, both savior and antagonist. Observers suffered whiplash watching as the FBI director evolved from upstanding and forthright public servant to political hack seemingly overnight. Today, while few will permit themselves to say it aloud, Democrats depended on Comey to corroborate their nagging suspicion that either Donald Trump or his associates collaborated with Russian officials. It was, thus, more...

    Guns have been a problem for the left for many years. Our country has a long history with firearms, and much of it has been troubling. We have had many mass shootings, and the NRA has pushed guns down our throats for years. They wanted you to believe that President Clinton and President Obama were going to take your weapons away as part of some vast conspiracy to round people up and put them in communist Muslim reeducation camps. Things have changed. We now have a president who is friendly with the authoritarian regime in Russia, and who winks at...

    The US government may soon be barring passengers from bringing electronic devices larger than a cellphone on some flights to and from the Middle East and Africa. But it seems that no one is sure what's really going on. Royal Jordanian Airlines on Monday tweeted a description of an electronics ban apparently implemented by the US government. But the airline deleted the tweet a few hours later.

    Croatia has been threatened with a lawsuit if it doesn’t support victims of the WWII fascist Ustasa movement in their claims for reparations - although one expert doubted Zagreb would back the case. Ustasa guards stripping prisoners before they enter the Jasenovac concentration camp. Photo: Wikimedia CommonsUS lawyer Jonathan Levy said on Monday that he will lay charges against Croatia if it fails to back claims against the Vatican Bank made by victims of the Croatian WWII fascist Ustasa movement. Certain people in the Vatican allegedly sponsored the exiled Ustasa government after WWII and helped to transfer parts of its...

    FBI Director James Comey once again found himself sitting in a room full of angry congressmen and eager reporters on Monday, when he testified before the House Intelligence Committee about the agency’s investigation into the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Comey confirmed the FBI has been investigating potential links between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government. The investigation “includes whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russian efforts,” said Comey, who also announced because much of the information involved is classified, he couldn’t “say more about whose conduct we are investigating.” Comey’s latest...

Trump’s Executive Order, Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States, signed on January 25.  This report will be issued weekly to highlight jurisdictions that choose not to cooperate with ICE detainers or requests for notification, therefore potentially endangering Americans. ICE places detainers on aliens who have been arrested on local criminal charges or who are in local custody and for whom ICE possesses probable...

    Preet Bharara is ready for his close-up. Bharara — who was dismissed as Manhattan US attorney last weekend when he refused a Trump administration order to ­resign — is angling for a TV gig that could help launch a run for elected office, a source told The Post. “He’s trying to be a liberal Bill O’Reilly,” the source claimed. Bharara, 48, could be hoping to land a news show on CNN or MSNBC, “a half-investigative reporting, half Larry King-type show, [where] he can be the special correspondent.” But in the short-term, Bharara is looking to appear on CBS’s “The Late...
  • European Parliament Passes Stringent New Gun Controls

    On March 14, the European Union completed one of the final steps in imposing stringent new gun controls across the political bloc, when the European Parliament approved legislation to alter the EU Firearms Directive by a vote of 491 to 178. The Firearms Directive was last amended in 2008. Passage comes after a deal to significantly alter the European Commission’s initial proposal was struck last December between the European Parliament and European Council. The legislation is now set to be approved by the European Council. Following the terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015, the European Union expedited plans...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said Monday during the confirmation hearing for Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, that Roe v. Wade is now a “super precedent” that cannot be changed. Feinstein argued that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, is “settled law” and could not be overturned by the Supreme Court in the future. “The Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld Roe’s court finding, making it settled law for the last 44 years,” she said, citing 14 cases where the high court upheld...
