  • Michael Goodwin: Peeling back the layers of Hillary Clinton’s deceit

    NY Post ^ | Michael Goodwin
    *snip* A third layer of the onion involves the revelations in the letter GOP Sens. Charles Grassley and Lindsey Graham wrote to the Justice Department. They urge a criminal investigation into whether Steele lied to the FBI about how much and when he fed the dossier to the anti-Trump media. The letter is compelling in showing that Steele said one thing under oath to a British court and something different to the FBI. The contradictions matter because the agency relied on Steele’s credibility in both the FISA applications and its actual investigation. Strangely, even after it fired him for breaking...
  • EVIDENCE of massive scandal at FBI (Obama gave Clinton team classified intel)

    ....“too big to believe” ... a cabal dedicated to defeating Donald Trump and to let Hillary skate in the classified email probe. FBI leaders betrayed the nation by abusing govt powers to hand-pick the president. ....also involves the salacious Russian dossier paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign......almost certainly used to get FISA court warrants to spy on Trump associates....oppo-research of the party in power convinced a court to let it spy on the candidate of the other party — without telling the court of the dossier’s political link. Even worse, there is growing reason to believe someone in...
  • Michael Goodwin: Evidence suggests a massive scandal is brewing at the FBI

    01/24/2018 5:07:30 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 44 replies ^ | Michael Goodwin
    During the financial crisis, the federal government bailed out banks it declared “too big to fail.” Fearing their bankruptcy might trigger economic Armageddon, the feds propped them up with taxpayer cash. Something similar is happening now at the FBI, with the Washington wagons circling the agency to protect it from charges of corruption. This time, the appropriate tag line is “too big to believe.” Yet each day brings credible reports suggesting there is a massive scandal involving the top ranks of America’s premier law enforcement agency. The reports, which feature talk among agents of a “secret society” and suddenly missing...
  • The case for a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton

    The New York Post ^ | September 2, 2017 | Michael Goodwin
    But the Clinton e-mail scandal, like Clinton herself, won’t go away. It remains a blot on the legacy of the Obama administration, the Justice Department and the FBI, and now comes fresh evidence that the investigation that cleared her was a total sham. The revelation from the Senate Judiciary Committee that J. Edgar Comey drafted his statement exonerating her about two months before FBI agents interviewed Clinton or 16 other witnesses confirms suspicions that the probe was neither honest nor thorough. When the outcome is decided long before the investigation is over, the result can’t be trusted. There is only...
  • Trump just delivered the best speech of his political career

    03/01/2017 6:08:06 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 29 replies ^ | Michael Goodwin
    Sometimes a speech is just a speech. And sometimes it heralds the prospect of a great national revival. Donald Trump gave the best speech of his short political life last night, and it had nothing to do with grand oratory. He was thoroughly presidential, speaking plainly and yet masterfully in projecting an optimistic vision of the America he aims to build. It is a vision so optimistic and encompassing that even steaming Democrats had to join boisterous Republicans in the applause at times. Anything you could possibly want, he served it up in a feast of ideas and promises. Trump...

    His slogan, Make America Great Again, was so in-your-face that there was no mistaking its meaning. It was nationalist and populist, and the fact that those ideas offended the tender sensibilities of the political and media elite was a bonus. Trump’s no-bulls–t approach struck a deep chord in the hearts of Americans who felt abandoned by both political parties and their government.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Let's go audio sound bite route because I have teased a couple times that we've got Doris Kearns Goodwin and others just continuing to pull their hair out trying to figure out how Hillary lost to Trump. As the days go by, they just can't figure it out. And they're not chalking it up to things like fake news, bamboozling people. One of the problems they're having is they cannot and are not honest with themselves about who they are. That's their biggest problem. The left's biggest problem is they lie even to themselves. But let's listen....

I’ll let Michael Goodwin at the NYPost explain:  The presidency is sinking, but we are expected to believe that only the president is blameless.We are witnessing the total collapse of a bad idea. Obamaism, a quasi-socialist commitment to a more powerful government at home and an abdication of American leadership around the world,...

    The reports are not good, disturbing even. I have heard basically the same story four times in the last 10 days, and the people doing the talking are in New York and Washington and are spread across the political spectrum. The gist is this: President Obama has become a lone wolf, a stranger to his own government. He talks mostly, and sometimes only, to friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett and to David Axelrod, his political strategist. Everybody else, including members of his Cabinet, have little face time with him except for brief meetings that serve as photo ops. Secretary of...

    W.Va. special election for U.S. Senate seat in doubtJuly 18, 2010 CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A special election is now in doubt for the seat held by the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd. Pending legislation would put the seat on the Nov. 2 ballot following an Aug. 28 primary. But the Legislature recessed Sunday without acting on it. State officials had questioned whether they could follow the necessary election timetable if a bill wasn’t passed by Sunday. Gov. Joe Manchin’s office says it believes the special election can still go forward if a bill passes Monday. Without the legislation,...

    Michael Goodwin, a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Post columnist, wrote an article today, entitled, "Dreading Our Future." An admitted Barack Obama voter, Goodwin expresses much more than just buyer's remorse. The anger, frustration, disappointment, shock, and fear he feels is communicated very clearly. The closest Goodwin comes to paying President Obama a compliment is, "he (Obama) has become an insufferable bore."

    A toothbrush, TelePrompTer and the nuclear football - they are the essentials for a traveling President. But as Barack Obama packs for this week's historic trip to the Mideast and Europe, there is something he definitely ought to leave at home: grating apologies for America's past. None is needed. Genuine pride in representing America will do just fine. Our nation has no peer in liberating people from the grip of tyranny, especially in the regions Obama will visit. That's a fact of history and the President of the United States ought to take every opportunity to say so. He certainly...

    Everybody makes mistakes, and I made a beaut the other day. I was wrong to call members of Congress blow-hards and buffoons and declare them worse than useless. I was too kind. I should have said our representatives are gangsters in pinstripes and pearls. They are petty tyrants and the more power they grab, the more at risk we are. Homeland Security should flash Code Red any time this Congress is in session. It is twilight in America now. The House vote to use the tax code to retroactively punish bonus babies was an act of sheer madness. What started...

    Not long ago, after a string of especially bad days for the Obama administration, a veteran Democratic pol approached me with a pained look on his face and asked, "Do you think they know what they're doing?" The question caught me off guard because the man is a well-known Obama supporter. As we talked, I quickly realized his asking suggested his own considerable doubts.

    Here is video of a discussion historian Doris Kearns Goodwin had with NBC's David Gregory about what may be President-elect Barack Obama's model for assembling a Cabinet. Goodwin wrote a book called "Team of Rivals," which details how President Abraham Lincoln brought some of his fiercest rivals and opponents into his Cabinet to govern with him. Obama has actually cited Goodwin's book, and Lincoln's example. The talk of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, and Obama's meeting scheduled for Monday with Sen.John McCain is fueling speculation that he may be trying to assemble such a governing team. . . ....
