    The Washington Post's story today implicated the Hillary campaign and the DNC as financiers of the "Dossier". But it is highly likely this is only a partial list. The timing of the leak to the Post is interesting. It comes just as the House Judiciary Committee is about to issue a subpoena for Fusion GPS's bank records. That would provide a complete record of who paid whom. There were rumors early on that the FBI paid Fusion GPS handsomely for access to these files and then used them as evidence for a FISA warrant. It seems the Post story is...
  • The hidden reason Trump fired Comey

    It is likely the firing of Comey has less to do with Hillary and more to do with surveillance and leaks of the Trump team, possibly including Trump himself. There was utter fear pervading Washington when it became obvious Trump would win the Republican nomination and possibly the election. He was threatening gutting agencies and closing down others. He was threatening the status quo. The media set out to destroy him. And there were others in government who felt the same way. Call it the Deep State or whatever, top level officials were more than concerned. Rules were bent especially...
  • Chicago gang killings skyrocket while Democrat pols play footsy with gangs

    The conventional wisdom is that the city fathers of big cities and gangs are at opposite ends of the spectrum. That may be true in many cities but it isn’t true in Chicago. The incestuous relationship between aldermen and gangs blurs the line between good and evil. 85 years of Democratic rule has left Chicago with a reputation as the most corrupt city in the US. It is well earned. Aldermen are kings (or queens) of their wards. They wield immense power. They control patronage jobs, zoning, city contracts, property tax reduction and permits in their wards. It is a...

    The conventional wisdom has been that Putin is behind it. But no one gives a reason he would want to tip the election from Hillary to Trump. Granted Russia has the capability to hack the emails, but so do dozens of other nations as well as malefactors in the US, both governmental and private.... What would be the motive for Putin to drop this stink bomb on Hillary’s coronation? Certainly Putin has not been treated harshly by this Democrat administration. This administration gave up the missile defense site in Poland in exchange for nothing. It cut American nuclear warheads beyond...

    Much has been made over Hillary Clinton’s prolonged hospital stay for a concussion in December 2012. But recent photos during her campaign show her cross-eyed. Here are some photos that show the situation. It is doubtful they were Photoshopped. Two were taken by an MSNBC photographer and published on the MSNBC’s website. The most recent one is a color AP photo carried by Drudge today (4/02/16).

    The Republican Party is facing a crisis. It has a candidate who is likely to win the nomination and could very well win the Presidential election. Yet they are doing their very best to see a repeat of the past two presidential cycles – nominating uninspiring candidates who have no chance of winning. The RNC would rather have a Democratic president, rather than support a reformer who would change the corrupt political structure of Washington. And they ignore the will of the people who are desperate to see that change happen.... Donald Trump has caught the imagination of not only...
  • Control of southern entrance to the Red Sea the next Mid-East flashpoint

    The Israeli intelligence blog Debka File reports that pro-Iranian Houthi troops have taken over control of the strategic straits (Bab el-Mandeb) at the southern entrance to the Red Sea. This choke point threatens all commercial and military maritime traffic from the oil rich nations bound for the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean. "Control of the Red Sea Bab el-Mandeb Straits passed Tuesday, March 31 to pro-Iranian Yemeni forces when the Yemeni Army’s 117th Brigade loyal to the former Yemeni President Ali Saleh handed positions guarding the waterway to two Houthi commando battalions trained by Iranian Revolutionary Guards. This is revealed...

    Google two days ago broke its official silence to put speculation to rest on its barge program. It is a weasel worded statement so general it is useless and it even says things may change. Here’s the money quote from Google in an article published by Tech Crunch "Google Barge … A floating data center? A wild party boat? A barge housing the last remaining dinosaur? Sadly, none of the above. Although it’s still early days and things may change, using the barge as an interactive space where people can learn about new technology we’re exploring."... ...At the heart of...

    On Friday a caller to the Rush Limbaugh show said she saw the most unusual and unexpected tabloid headline while in the checkout line of Wal-Mart. It stated: OBAMA WORSE THAN NIXON And she went on to say the subheads said even more: Ordered IRS to target political enemies Spied on US citizens Lied about terror attack Now that’s the way to reach low information voters! But how could Republicans get so lucky? Well, it’s probably not luck. It’s most likely a sign there is bad blood boiling up between the Clintons and President Obama again. Possibly Hillary is being...

    The Justice Department’s monitoring of the AP’s phone records is one of the most bone headed moves of this administration. And to announce it on the heels of two major scandals seems to defy logic. But does it? The only thing standing in the way of a torrent of whistle blowers, purloined emails and first hand testimony has been the pliant and fawning media. They have ignored blatant falsehoods, obvious phony cover stories and have not followed through on potentially explosive stories such as Fast and Furious. With few exceptions, the established media has been an effective shield protecting those...

    I have wondered why the Romney campaign hasn’t used President Obama’s own words against him. So I will. In an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer in June 2011 addressing the economy, Obama stated: "If I don’t have this done in three years, then there is going to be a one term proposition." Well said, Mr. President! We will take you at your word. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmRgaKfWMPA&feature=player_embedded
  • Biden’s deceptive remarks on Iran’s nuclear weapons program

    Vice President Joe Biden in last night’s debate said that while Iran may have the capability to enrich uranium, it does not have a warhead and does not present a threat. There are problems with his statement. The first is it is likely the Iranians have already designed and tested major components of a warhead using substitute (non-nuclear) materials. This was done under the direction of a Ukrainian scientist who had formerly worked at the Soviet/Russian nuclear facility Chelyabinsk-70. The November 2011 IAEA report places this test at the Parchin, Iran military base. The IAEA has repeatedly been denied access...

    Liars I am so furious about this I can hardly write. I hope this post is not too incoherent. As anybody with a modicum of intelligence could have predicted, the Obama misadministration's story on the Bengahzi murder of Ambassador Stevens has fallen apart. As I wrote before (here and here, for example) this misadministration has been lying about what happened in Benghazi. They tried two tactics to hide the facts. First, we had the hapless State Department spokesman, Victoria Nuland, saying there would be no more comments because the smoldering Benghazi consulate was now a "crime scene" and the FBI...

    Last Friday (June 29) House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa pulled one off on AG Eric Holder. The lockup of Fast and Furious documents by the administration, many of which are under judicial seal, was shattered by his use of Congressional Immunity. Mr. Issa has received a number of leaked documents from unnamed sources. In particular he has copies of wiretap applications which put a lie to AG Eric Holder’s contention that no senior officials at DOJ had knowledge that guns were allowed to walk into uncontrolled hands. Issa has now opened a door that permits him get his leaked...

    Let’s hope nothing like it happens here. China’s Great Leap Forward (1958-61) was Mao’s ill conceived effort to jump start China from a rural economy into an industrialized nation overnight. Not only did it fail, but it was a disaster of epic proportions. An estimated 30 million Chinese died of starvation in its aftermath. Mao’s later Cultural Revolution, which received greater publicity, can’t compare. That was a political purification program. The Great Leap Forward was destructive communist socialism at its worst. It should be a lesson. Mao in all his wisdom wanted to build an industrial economy by uprooting peasants...

    In researching Island Turtle’s article on the folly of President Obama’s agreement to buy the same horse twice (actually the third or fourth time is more accurate) with his 240 kilotons of food, for 8 months of good behavior (until the election) by Kim Jong-un, I was bowled over by the obsequious praise of The One by NY Times readers. It took only two weeks for young Kim to announce he was breaking the deal and 6 weeks to launch the rocket which ended in failure. And it now appears he will detonate a nuclear weapon to add an exclamation...

    Gateway Pundit carries an interview of Janet Murgula, President of La Raza, on Keeping it Real with Reverend Al Sharpton (guest host Andre Eggelletion). The gist of the conversation is Hispanics and blacks should join forces to address common “problems.” It is curious why such a conversation is taking place at the height of the Trayvon Martin issue. It seems the controversy is now driving a wedge between Hispanics and blacks. Janet Murgula wouldn't have made her statement otherwise. The friction has long been there. Look at the street gangs of Los Angeles, look at the prison gangs. They are...

    The Obama administration has just proven its utter failure in foreign policy. It had negotiated an agreement with the North Korea that in exchange for food it would give up its uranium enrichment program, allow IAEA inspectors into the Yongbyong facilities, halt missile tests and cease nuclear weapons tests. It is now 43 days since the agreement was inked and in that short period of time North Korea has announced plans to launch a satellite with missile based technology (a lightly veiled test of its long range Taepodong-2) and begun preparations for an underground nuclear detonation. This sets the record...
  • Why did Judge Smith lecture Obama? Because he simply ignored a court order the judge had approved.

    Most lawyers trying a case abide by the maxim: Don’t piss off the judge. President Obama disregarded that when he lectured the Supreme Court not to overturn the health care law. Indirectly the President was challenging the entire judiciary and it struck a raw nerve with Judge Jerry Smith, of the 5th Circuit Appeals Court. Judge Smith had, less than two years earlier rejected, in a 2 to 1 decision, the Interior Department request to stay a lower court order lifting the offshore drilling moratorium (Hornbeck Offshore Services LLC v. Salazar) – thus requiring the moratorium lifted. In one of...
