    The media's hypocrisy concerning foreign influence in U.S. elections is staggering. Find me a media commentator who isn’t turning him or herself upside down trying to explain why Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with the Russians could potentially lead to the president’s removal from office, and I’ll show you someone who either isn’t on the air or is just not trying very hard. Nobody seemed to care when the Russians used political influence to buy up U.S. uranium stocks under Obama. Let’s see if they care the Chinese may now be trying to buy up significant quantities of U.S. copper using...
  • Report: Trump didn't have a victory speech prepared on election night

    In his forthcoming book Devil's Bargain, Bloomberg Businessweek's Joshua Green writes President Trump didn't have a victory speech prepared on election night, per the Daily Mail. Also on election night, Green writes, Trump became enraged when Chris Christie suggested that Barack Obama call his phone when he reached out to congratulate Trump — a move which contributed to their falling out. Christie's office says that's "complete fiction." Other nuggets: How Trump reportedly chewed out then-campaign manager Paul Manafort: After reports that his aides went on TV to reach Trump, Trump reportedly yelled "'Am I like a baby to you? I...

    Talking Points Memo ^ | 7/12/2017 | Allegra Kirkland
    Donald Trump, Jr. is taking a lot of heat for the bombshell story about his meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer who promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help his father’s campaign. But another person present at that meeting was who ultimately set in motion the events that led to its public disclosure: Trump Jr.’s brother-in-law, White House adviser Jared Kushner. The June 2016 sit-down with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was first brought to government officials’ attention when it was listed among the foreign contacts on Kushner’s amended application for a top-level security...

    A former senior director of the National Security Council under President George W. Bush said on Thursday that the liberal media and Obama loyalists inside and outside of the federal government had executed a “coordinated attack” on President Donald Trump since he was elected. Michael Doran made the remarks at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC, where he is a senior fellow on Middle East security and was a panelist for a discussion at the institute on Russian meddling in the U.S. 2016 presidential election. The conversation quickly shifted to Trump and his campaign’s relationship with the Russians and the ongoing...

    American Greatness ^ | June 30, 2017 | Ken Masugi
    About a year ago, the respected Harvard political theorist, Harvey C. Mansfield, Jr., wrote an op-ed about Donald Trump for the Wall Street Journal titled, “Why Donald Trump Is No Gentleman.” Mansfield made the case that the appellation “gentleman” is one used so rarely these days that we forget, even, to note its opposite. He also wrote: The outstanding person in this election is Donald Trump, in that he attracts the most attention, but the outstanding fact is the voters behind him who excuse Mr. Trump for his ungentlemanly behavior…. Incapable as he is of appreciating the gentleman, Mr. Trump...

    When Salena Zito took a buyout from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review over the summer, she may not have expected that the end of her 11 years at the paper would presage a new, more high profile chapter in her career -- as a reporter who saw Trump's victory coming from miles away. For several months, for outlets ranging from the liberal Atlantic to the red-blooded New York Post, Zito churned out pieces about the supposedly elusive Trump voters that the polls seem to have missed. She wrote that these people take Trump “seriously, not literally.” She wrote a piece about the...

    The AntiFa Resist 45 Movement loves to point out that Hillary won the popular vote. However, if you get down into the weeds a bit the picture that materializes isn’t quite what we have been led to believe by the Democrat Party, their bully-boy street thugs, or their media megaphone. As reported in Investor’s Business Daily if you take California out of the equation it is a completely different picture. If you look at every other measure, Trump was the clear and decisive winner in this election. Number of states won: Trump: 30 Clinton: 20 Trump: +10 Number of electoral...
  • [Secret Memos] Did the FBI retaliate against Michael Flynn by launching Russia probe?

    06/26/2017 5:01:09 PM PDT · by springwater13 · 52 replies
    The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews. Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile...

    Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz accused ex-DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson of lying under oath when he said the DNC refused the help of the DHS in their hacking scandal. Johnson said during testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday that the Democratic National Committee refused DHS help with Russian hacking and opted not to turn over their hacked servers. However, in a Thursday interview on CNN, Wasserman Schultz accused him of being “misinformed,” and said the DNC was never even made aware that their network had been compromised.

    arly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race.

    "This troubles me deeply as a Republican, but it troubles me even more as an American," said Paulson, a former Goldman Sachs chief executive who spearheaded the 2008 Wall Street bank bailout as treasury secretary. "Enough is enough," he wrote. "It's time to put country before party and say it together: Never Trump." Instead, he offered up Democrats' presumptive presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, as the country's best alternative to Trump, encouraging his GOP colleagues to consider her when casting their ballot.

    Jay Z is continuing his fight against the criminal justice system by helping men who have been incarcerated but can’t get release due to exorbitant bail bonds. In an essay for Time magazine, Hov attacks the “exploitative bail industry” for their practices that he deems are unfair to black and brown people. “If you’re from neighborhoods like the Brooklyn one I grew up in, if you’re unable to afford a private attorney, then you can be disappeared into our jail system simply because you can’t afford bail,” Jay writes. “Millions of people are separated from their families for months at...
  • Immunity deals stopped FBI from investigating BleachBit use in Clinton email case

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/5/2016 | Sarah Westwood
    Immunity agreements offered to two of Hillary Clinton's top aides prevented the FBI from looking into the circumstances surrounding the use of BleachBit, a digital deletion tool, to destroy the former secretary of state's emails. In a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch Wednesday, four Republican committee chairmen demanded to know why Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson, two witnesses who also served as Clinton's personal attorneys, were granted such expansive protections despite the FBI's awareness that they had participated in potentially illegal activities. For example, the FBI agreed to limit its search to emails written after June 1, 2014, but...

    Democrat super-lobbyist Tony Podesta was paid $170,000 over a six-month period last year to represent Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, seeking to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against that country, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned. Podesta, founder and chairman of the Podesta Group, is listed as a key lobbyist on behalf of Sberbank, according to Senate lobbying disclosure forms. His firm received more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it coming from foreign governments, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

    Last year, eight members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence issued a demand that their staffers be granted access to top secret classified information. The signatories to the letter were Andre Carson, Luis Guiterez, Jim Himes, Terri Sewell, Jackie Speier, Mike Quigley, Eric Swalwell and Patrick Murphy. All the signatories were Democrats. Some had a history of attempting to undermine national security. Two of them have been linked to an emerging security breach. The office of Andre Carson, the second Muslim in Congress, had employed Imran Awan. As did the offices of Jackie Speier and Debbie Wasserman Schultz;...

    It's a tough time to work in national security and have opinions, or even a conscience. On Monday, a 25-year-old federal contractor named Reality Leigh Winner was arrested for allegedly leaking a top-secret NSA document to The Intercept. The apparent document, dated a month ago, contains shocking details about an alleged Russian cyberattack on a supplier of US voting software, as well as malicious emails sent to voting officials in an attempt to hack their computers. Unlike previous reports, this one, if accurate, was far more overt in what it revealed, leaving little doubt that the attacks were coordinated by...

    Hillary Clinton blasted the Democratic National Committee on Wednesday, saying that she "inherited nothing" from the party after winning its presidential nomination last year. "So I’m now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party," she said during a question and answer session at Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. "I mean, it was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong," she recalled. "I had to inject money into it." By contrast, she said, then-GOP candidate Donald Trump inherited a well-funded and extensively tested data...

    Clinton public appearances dominated by increasingly bizarre election defeat claims Hillary Clinton spoke to Goldman Sachs for the very simple reason that she got paid, the former Democratic presidential candidate told an audience at Recode’s annual coding conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Clinton took the opportunity to blame numerous players for her election defeat on Nov. 8, and also to justify her use of the term “vast right-wing conspiracy” all the way back in 1998. The “conspiracy” against her, she suggested, is still alive. Clinton, speaking to Recode founders Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, said she didn’t lose because...
