    Hillary Clinton sent out 8 tweets about Trump’s relationship with Russia leading up to election day in anticipation of the release of the Russia dossier. She was preparing the public for the Russian narrative plot she had been working on with Fusion GPS and dossier author Christopher Steele. The FBI launched their Trump-Russia probe in late July of 2016. Per a Politico report from March of 2017: FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Monday that his agency has been investigating possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials since last July. Shortly after the FBI launched a probe into Trump-Russia...

  • "She Was In Full Meltdown”: Hillary Unleashed On Donna Brazile

    10/21/2016 5:40:40 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 34 replies
    Hindsight is making more and more clear that Hillary’s outrageously rigged campaign is dependent – heavily dependent – on control over the media. Nearly every question she has been asked during the past 18 months has been approved and agreed upon ahead of time. Hillary’s responses have been heavily scripted and rehearsed. It even emerged that Donna Brazile, who is a CNN contributor and who was appointed interim chair of the DNC after Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced out, shared questions that were meant to be spontaneous with the Clinton campaign in advance.

    NOTE: we probably have all heard of the infamous quote. Here is the source information for the story. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I’ve read on the AltMedia that Hillary Clinton had an outburst, in which the pathological liar said probably the only truthful thing she’s ever said: “If that fu**ing bastard [Donald Trump] wins, we all hang from nooses.” So I did a search and found the source of that quote: Bill Still, of The Still Report videos on YouTube. On his website, Still describes himself as: A former newspaper editor and publisher. He has written for USA Today, The Saturday Evening Post,...

    (Reuters) - Senior FBI officials who helped probe Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign told a colleague that Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had to win the race to the White House, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. Peter Strzok, a senior FBI agent, said Clinton “just has to win” in a text sent to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, the Times reported. The messages showed concern from Strzok and Page that a Trump presidency could politicize the FBI, the report said, citing texts turned over to Congress and obtained by the newspaper. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating...

    RUSH: By the way, the Comey memos regarding Trump and Flynn, do you know what they really reveal? They reveal that Trump had a lot of reservations about Flynn’s judgment. It wasn’t just related to the phone call he had with the Russian ambassador who went to lunch all the time, Sergey Kislyak. According to Comey’s memos, Trump’s reservations about Flynn were numerous, and they were related to his judgment. Trump was not confident of it. Now, case you’re asking, no, there were no Comey memos ever of any of his meetings or time spent with President Obama. You might...

    James Comey's memoir, pompously titled A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, set for release on April 17, is out from the reviewer class, and all but one seems to have missed the bombshell in it: that Comey neglected to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her refusal to properly handle the nation's top secrets through her illegal private bathtub server, and exposed those secrets to  our nation's enemies, because he thought she would win the 2016 election.  Some Boy Scout, as he and his allies portray him. Quite a few of the reviewers focus on Comey's descriptive powers, something that could make...

    Did anyone happen to catch David Brooks’s latest column, “Donald Trump’s Lizard Wisdom,” in the New York Times? I about fell out of my chair, because Brooks almost tacitly admits that maybe he was wrong about Trump. Referring to Trump’s experience dealing with the mobbed-up New York construction scene in his long real estate career, Brooks says: And yet I can’t help but wonder if that kind of background has provided a decent education for dealing with the sort of hopped-up mobsters running parts of the world today. There is growing reason to believe that Donald Trump understands the thug...

    As the trajectory of a comet changes as it passes by a star, so some of Donald Trump's most adamant critics are starting to alter their course due to the gravitational pull of the president's significant achievements.  First up is Rich Lowry, editor of National Review and formerly a NeverTrump.  In a piece in the New York Post, Lowry writes regarding Trump's pullout of the Obama-Iran nuclear deal:   His exit from the agreement is another instance of the Trump paradox.  The president who says more outlandish and untrue things than anyone who has ever occupied the office of the presidency is also extraordinarily determined to deliver on his big promises.

    David Brooks! You can now expect your invitations to trendy Manhattan and Georgetown parties to not so mysteriously dry up. Your crime? Despite being one of the most prominent Never Trumpers out there, you actually (GASP!) dared to praise President Donald Trump's foreign policy. Such a Thought Crime must be punished with a public shunning. Yes, despite his previous record as an Antifa Ninja Play Warrior of The Resistance which began on the heels of the 2016 election, Brooks has come around to grudging support for Trump's foreign policy in his May 10 New York Times column, Donald Trump’s Lizard Wisdom [emphasis mine]:

    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks said that the GOP tax bill is working better than he thought it would and the evidence “seems to be that what the Trump people told us would happen is happening, that companies are reinvesting the money.” Brooks stated, “I was against the Trump tax cuts. But the early evidence is that they’re working better than I thought. And so, in the first quarter, among S&P companies, capital expenditures are up 39 percent. That’s a seven-year high. That’s far higher than a lot of us thought. Stock buybacks, which is...

    After more than a year of relentless opposition to President Donald Trump, New York Times "conservative" columnist David Brooks has thrown his hands in the air and has declared that blind resistance is futile. Notably absent in his April 9 column is that he himself has been guilty of many of the excesses and extreme hubris of the anti-Trumpers.  Brooks lays out his case without much of a sense of critical self-awareness in The Failures of Anti-Trumpism:

    Remember about a decade ago when New York Times "conservative" David Brooks stared with awe and admiration at the crease in Barack Obama's pants leg and took that as a sign that he would be a very good president? Well, in a latter day update of that, Vanity Fair writer Kenzie Bryant is currently gazing with complete fascination at President Donald Trump's pant legs and is obsessing over their size. There is neither awe nor admiration in Bryant's tone but there is an unhealthy overdose of very weird obsession as she wonders What Is Going on with Trump’s Pant Legs?...

    The other storyline is simply fantastical. Congressional Republicans have uniformly run away from Trump's Obama-wiretap accusation. Clapper denies it. FBI Director James Comey denies it. Not a single member of Trump's own administration is willing to say it's true. Loopier still is to demand that Congress find the truth when the president could just pick up the phone and instruct the FBI, CIA and DNI to declare on the record whether this ever occurred. And if there really was an October 2016 FISA court order to wiretap Trump, the president could unilaterally declassify the information yesterday. The bugging story is...

    Smug self-congratulation and groveling delight in being praised by progressives. Bruce Thornton is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. President Trump in his first year has succeeded at realizing many long-time conservative goals like tax reform and deregulation, to name a few. But for NeverTrump grumps, these achievements seem to intensify their bitter-ender anger at a political parvenu. Puffed up with self-regard about the purity of their “principles,” many have doubled-down on their criticisms of Trump’s brash, vulgar demeanor, coming off like the pompous Judge Smails sputtering over Al Czervik’s trashing of the Bushwood Country Club....

    On Friday's weekly roundup on the PBS Newshour, after analyst David Brooks said the Trump White House has a "perpetual unraveling" of staff, liberal analyst Mark Shields compared it to people trying to escape the Berlin Wall, where escapees were often killed by communist guards. "This White House is resembling nothing as much as East Berlin, in that there's more people trying to get out than there are trying to get in." The subject was the resignation of White House staff secretary after two ex-wives accused him of domestic abuse. Brooks took a shot at chief of staff John Kelly:...

    The New York Times columnist David Brooks writes in a “memo” to Democratic Party leaders that their support for abortion on demand up until birth is hurting their party. Pointing out the failure of the Senate to muster 60 votes to protect unborn babies from abortion past the fifth month of pregnancy, Brooks notes, “I kept wondering: How much is our position on late-term abortions hurting us?” Taking his readers back through time before Roe v. Wade, when the Supreme Court created a right to abortion – though, as Alan Dershowitz has noted, none ever existed in the Constitution –...

    Every few years I try to write a column staking out a reasonable middle ground on immigration. After all, most big, important issues are clashes in which both sides have a piece of the truth. The case for restricting immigration seems superficially plausible. Over the last several decades we’ve conducted a potentially reckless experiment. The number of foreign-born Americans is at record highs, straining national cohesion, raising distrust. Maybe America should take a pause, as we did in the 1920s. After all, that pause seemed to produce the cohesive America of the 1940s that won the war and rose to...

    New York Times columnist David Brooks tells his friends that the costs imposed by cheap-labor immigration don’t exist because, really, Americans are just inferior to immigrants in every way. Over all, America is suffering from a loss of dynamism. New business formation is down. Interstate mobility is down. Americans switch jobs less frequently and more Americans go through the day without ever leaving the house. But these trends are largely within the native population. Immigrants provide the antidote. They start new businesses at twice the rate of nonimmigrants. Roughly 70 percent of immigrants express confidence in the American dream, compared...
