  • Trump praises Kim Jong Un as honorable, refuses to explain why (Trump OWES CNN an explanation)

    Cartoon News Network ^ | Updated 3:13 PM ET, Tue April 24, 2018 | Zachary Cohen and Kevin Liptak
    Washington -- (CNN)President Donald Trump said Tuesday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un -- the man he once mocked as "Little Rocket Man" -- "has really been very open and I think very honorable based on what we are seeing" as the two gear up for an anticipated face-to-face meeting in the coming weeks. He didn't expand further when asked to explain his comment that Kim is an "honorable" person, sidestepping the question. Trump said he is looking forward to meeting Kim "very soon" and indicated the North Koreans are pressing for talks to begin immediately.

    “The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act,” Acosta said of Trump labeling some news outlets “fake news.” “They’re not in on the act and they take what he says very seriously and they take attacks from Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders and what they do to us on a daily basis very seriously.” He added, “they don’t have all their faculties in come cases — their elevator might not hit all floors.” “My concern is that a journalist is gonna get hurt one of these days,” Acosta concluded.

    CNN’s Jim Acosta trashed the intellect of Americans in an interview with Variety Magazine, asserting that they “don’t have all of their faculties in some cases.” Acosta was interviewed for a feature piece on the trials and tribulations of covering the Trump White House, and in an accompanying video he suggested that many Americans aren’t smart enough to understand that “fake news” is not a call to violence. “The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act,” Acosta said of Trump labeling some news outlets “fake news.” “They’re not in on the act and they take...
  • There Is No Such Thing As ‘Newsworthy’ Exception To Attorney-Client Confidentiality

    Townhall.com ^ | April 21, 2018 | Marina Medvin
    President Trump and his supporters made headway in accusing the Federal government of violating or endangering attorney-client privilege. They’re not wrong. The attorney-client privilege is recognized by our Supreme Court as one of the oldest recognized privileges for confidential communications. See Hunt v. Blackburn, 128 U. S. 464 (1888). The privilege is intended to encourage "full and frank communication between attorneys and their clients and thereby promote broader public interests in the observance of law and the administration of justice,” the Supreme Court explained in 1982. And, in 1998, the Supreme Court confirmed that attorney-client confidentiality is so important to...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Hey, let’s do that with Obamacare, too! – Chuckie Schumer announced on Friday that he’s introducing a bill that would essentially rescind federal marijuana laws because, he claims, he is such a huge believer in the concept of federalism that he thinks we should just let the states decide on whether pot should be legal or not. This marks the first issue in his long political career on which the old collectivist expressed a fealty to federalism. Talking Points Parrot for Senate! – Just minutes after Schumer had held his press conference,...

    Before you watch this insanity, which made the social media rounds this week, may I remind you that Senator Barack Obama met privately with, and complimented, this man at an event coordinated by the Congressional Black Caucus -- a disgrace that was deliberately hidden from voters until Obama was safely out of office?  May I also remind you that numerous CBC members have courted this man's support, including the current deputy DNC Chairman, who hasn't been truthful about the nature of that relationship?  As I've previously argued, "minister" Louis Farrakhan is the Left's version of David Duke, in that...

    Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker on Sunday dismissed criticism about Republicans “ramming” Mike Pompeo’s nomination as secretary of state through the chamber, saying Senate Democrats have blocked the “highly qualified” Pompeo from getting the post just to appease their anti-Trump base. “I don't think allowing people to vote is called ramming,” Corker, R-Tenn., said in response to the criticism on CNN. “This is a person who is highly qualified.

  • Valerie Jarrett’s Daughter Laura Now On The Get-Donald-Trump CNN Team

    Why would CNN hire the daughter of Barack Obama’s top adviser Valerie Jarrett to go after the President of the United States of America. In political life, attorney generals sometimes “recuse” themselves even when it leaves a knife in the back of a newly elected president. In March of 2017, Jeff Sessions recused himself from any investigation into the 2016 presidential election, including the so-called Russia probe, after the Washington Post reported he had met with Sergey KIslyak at least twice in 2016, contacts he was accused of failing to disclose during his heated confirmation hearing.

    American Thinker ^ | April 21, 2018 | Monica Snowalter
    The memos are out from former FBI Director James Comey, and one of the big takeaways is how useful a tool Valerie Jarrett's daughter, Laura Jarrett, could be for the Hillary Clinton campaign while she was employed at CNN. CNN, it seems, helped orchestrate the set-up of President Trump when it pressed the then-FBI director to have a meeting with Trump so that the matter could be leaked and the press would have a credible reason to report as news all the otherwise slimy opposition research contained within the Steele dossier. Up until then, Fusion GPS, the purveyor of the...

    On Thursday night the much anticipated Comey memos were finally released by the DOJ to Congress. The memos show that Comey has not been honest with the public about his meetings with Trump. The memos also show that Comey likely broke the law. In one exchange Comey told Trump that CNN was pressuring him about the anti-Trump dossier. Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller reported: Former FBI Director James Comey wrote in a newly released memo that pressure from news outlets — “CNN in particular” — convinced him to brief then-President-Elect Donald Trump on the infamous Steele dossier during a...

The back-and-forth jabs seem to be happening on a regular basis between the two cable news networks, with MSNBC, which is currently second to Fox News overall in the cable news race, rarely being dragged into the fight. “In the two days that have elapsed since the president’s lawyer Michael Cohen was forced to reveal in court that the mystery client he tried to keep secret...

    (CNN)Nikki Haley is not to be trifled with -- especially by the likes of a TV anchor-turned-newly-minted White House aide. Larry Kudlow, the chief economic adviser for President Donald Trump, learned that lesson the (very) hard way on Tuesday after he gave an roundly dismissive interview on Haley's promise of future sanctions against Russia. "She got ahead of the curve," Kudlow told reporters gathered near Mar-a-Lago. "She's done a great job, she's a very effective ambassador. There might have been some momentary confusion about that." It felt -- and sounded -- like a rhetorical pat on the head. Sure, Nikki...

When asked by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer if stalling Russian sanctions was the right move for Trump, Paul directed the topic to whether or not the chemical attack in Syria was even genuine. “I think before you talk about sanctions, we oughta talk about what evidence is there that Russia was complicit in this attack,” Paul said on Monday....

    The slime ball has the audacity to judge Trump from his perch on CNN?! 1. In 1986 Toobin took “The Oath,” marrying fellow Harvard student Amy McIntosh and promising to be faithful to her. They have two teenage children. 2. It did not take long for Toobin — who has been called “The Tiger Woods of Legal Journalism” because he shares Tiger’s “weakness for women and wandering eye” — to break that oath. 3. By the mid-1990s, Toobin was aggressively hitting on women, using “disgusting, ” “shockingly sexual come-on lines.” According to one of the women (apparently book editor and...

    With her cloud of snow-white hair, signature three strand pearls and compelling presence, Barbara Bush's image was what she laughingly called "everybody's grandmother." But the feisty, outspoken Bush was also a tireless advocate for literacy , an author, experienced campaigner and both wife and mother of a U.S. president. Bush, 92, died Tuesday, shortly after her family announced she was in failing health and would decline further medical treatment in favor of “comfort care.” There were no details of her specific health problems. She is survived by her husband of 73 years, former President George H.W. Bush, five children (a...
