    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer suggested President Donald Trump is becoming a good friend after their handful of productive meetings and dinners. After Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's floor speech, Schumer was caught on a hot mic discussing Trump with some of his aides. "He likes us," Schumer said. "He likes me, anyway." Schumer added that he told Trump it is sometimes wise to veer away from the confines of the GOP platform. "Here's what I told him: 'Mr. President, you are much better off sometimes stepping right and sometimes step left," he added. "You have to step just in...

    Awkward! After someone forgot to switch off a microphone at the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday, July 25, two senators were caught dissing President Donald Trump on a hot mic. Chairman of Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee Susan Collins and Sen. Jack Reed were unknowingly recorded discussing the federal budget and calling 71-year-old Trump “crazy” in audio obtained by The Washington Post. “I swear, [the Office of Management and Budget] just went through and whenever there was ‘grant,’ they just X it out,” said Collins, a Republican senator from Maine. “With no measurement, no thinking...

    Once again, we have a perfect example of why the American people distrust the media. At Donald Trump’s New York Times presser, reporters were caught red-handed discussing whether or not they should “boo or hiss” at the lobby of the Trump Tower. Read at
  • MSNBC Deletes Scarborough Criticism of NBC’s ‘Cooked’ Poll Helping Hillary

    During the opening 6AM segment of today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough accused NBC of having “cooked” its current poll to favor Hillary Clinton. But at 8AM when Morning Joe replayed that opening segment, Scarborough’s criticism of the NBC poll . . . had disappeared. Instead, the video jumped ahead to Mika Brzezinski’s reading of the poll results themselves, which showed Hillary Clinton with an 11-14% lead. Scarborough’s point was that NBC sampled only during the height of the hot mic hysteria, but didn’t include sampling from after the debate, widely viewed as having been won by Trump. Joe obviously knew he...

    Hey, can y’all keep a secret? Well, I’m writing this missive from the historic Olympic Club, nation’s oldest athletic club founded in 1860, located in San Francisco. Boy howdy, I was a bit nervous that as soon as I landed, ol’ Nancy Pelosi would have Obama’s secret police there to put me in shackles. Friday evening I spoke to the San Francisco GOP Club, and yes, there is such a thing and a great group of folks led by Christine Hughes. It was great to see my dear friend Marie Stroughter of African-American Conservatives and her family. Today, I’m in...

    Two days ago, we reported Donny Deutsch predicting that stories damaging to Donald Trump involving women would be emerging. We wondered out loud: “was this pure speculation on Donny’s part, or did a little birdie inside the Clinton campaign tell him something?” And sure enough—just one day later—broke the hot mic story of Trump making crude and lewd comments about one woman in particular and women in general. So sure looks like Donny did know something. In any case, appearing on today’s With All Due Respect, Donny declared: “let the record show, at 4:01pm on October 7th, this election ended—when...

I'm at a loss for words, I don't even know what to say. The Tea-party jihadists, RP & McConnell discussing their true intentions to bulls**t and waste as much time as they can on a Mic they didn't know was on.

    “You’d think we’d stop celebrating the birth of the worst imperial power in history –but nooooo…we have to do this flag-waving bullshit every year,” Obama muttered more as he made his way from the podium. “I can’t believe I have to miss a good day of golf for this crap!” Although Obama’s presumably inaudible words were not heard nearly as loudly as his official Independence Day speech, a few reporters and attendees close to the speakers beneath the White House balcony heard him distinctly. Obama tacked on a couple more self-pitying quips before removing his clip-on mic, “...Could have been...

    Democrats are crying foul over GOP suggestions that President Obama has a “secret deal” on missile defense with Russia. The fight began in March, when a hot mic at a summit caught Obama telling then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he’d have more “flexibility” on the issue after the election. Medvedev famously responded that he would transmit that information to Vladimir Putin, who is now Russia's president. Republicans immediately attacked Obama for making a secret deal, and they used this week’s floor debate on the Defense authorization bill to highlight their argument. No one in Congress has been more vocal about...
  • Barack Obama’s grovelling before the Russians is an embarrassment

    Ronald Reagan, together with Margaret Thatcher, stood up to Moscow, and brought the Soviet Empire to its knees. In contrast, Barack Obama has gone on his knees to grovel before the Russians. The exchange between President Obama and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev in Seoul was a display of supplication before a major strategic adversary on an issue of great importance for US national security – missile defence. -excerpt- Barack Obama’s comments are disturbing on several levels. First, they display a willingness to placate America’s enemies, and cede ground over issues of national interest. Second, Obama is linking foreign policy...

    The conservative super-PAC American Crossroads mocks President Obama as "President Flexible" in a spoof of Hollywood spy movies released Friday. The Karl Rove-linked outside spending group takes Obama to task in the video, titled "Operation Hot Mic," for telling Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday that he will have “more flexibility” to deal with missile defense after the presidential election. The private conversation was caught by live microphones. "Your mission is simple, Mr. Obama: Win one last election to gain unchecked flexibility, weaken our defenses and fundamentally transform. Dmitry will transmit the information," says a female narrator in the video....

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 3/29/2012 | Martin Peretz
    When President Obama blurted out to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he couldn't do serious business during an election year, the New York Times characterized it as a "moment of political candor." It seems to me, actually, to be a moment of political contempt—for the issues at hand as well as for the demos itself. Mr. Medvedev meanwhile was in familiar territory: Dissembling is the routine of the elected Russian dictatorship. We are the big boys, Mr. Obama seemed to be telling Mr. Medvedev— or rather Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and I are, and you, Medvedev, are the messenger, to...

    President Obama has done the country a favor: He has given a hint of what his second term would consist of. Unshackled by the need to be re-elected, Mr. Obama would unleash an all-out radical assault. His plan is to bring Trotskyism to America, thereby imposing a socialist revolution from above. America’s military will be gutted. Its private economy subordinated to a centralized, bureaucratic state. The nation transformed into a Third World basket case. And all of this will come with the Kremlin’s blessing. At a security summit in South Korea, Mr. Obama was overheard speaking with Russian President Dmitry...
  • What Will Obama Give Russia If He's Re-elected?

    03/28/2012 6:56:59 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 16 replies ^ | March 28, 2012 | Terry Jeffrey
    President Barack Obama would like to do some things for Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and President-elect Vladimir Putin that he does not want American voters to know about before they decide whether to re-elect him in November. That was the intended-to-be-secret message Obama gave Medvedev in South Korea on Monday. But Obama was caught delivering the message on tape -- and, no matter how the liberal media try to spin it, the moment is destined to become emblematic of Obama as a man and as a president. "On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved. But...

    As President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev ended a public conference in South Korea (a nation demonstrably threatened by North Korean ballistic missiles), a still-open microphone inadvertently recorded a stunning tete-a-tete. The brief but jaw-dropping act of personal diplomacy yoked U.S. and Russian arguments over missile defense systems, a serious international security issue of long-term geo-strategic consequence, to Obama's short-term domestic political plan to secure his own re-election come November. The whispered exchange: Obama: "On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it's important for him (Putin) to give me space." Medvedev:...

    Reporting from Seoul— U.S. politics combined with diplomacy as Russian President Dmitri Medvedev took a swipe at Mitt Romney and President Obama, pointing to an uncooperative Congress and a toxic political environment at home to explain why he was delaying negotiations with Russian leaders over missile defense. Romney, in a CNN interview Monday, had referred to Russia as "our No. 1 geopolitical foe," prompting Medvedev to tell reporters here that the Republican front-runner's language seemed out of date and "smelled of Hollywood" stereotypes. "Regarding ideological cliches, every time this or that side uses phrases like 'enemy No. 1', this always...
