    Gun Watch ^ | 11 July, 2018 | Dean Weingarten
    Former FBI Director James Comey refused to carry a gun when he was with the FBI. It is likely he never carried a gun during his career. He grew up in Yonkers, New York. He obtained his Batchelors of Science at the College of William and Mary in Virginia, well before Virginia passed a shall issue concealed carry law. From inews.co.uk: In his memoir, A Higher Loyalty, James Comey writes of his time at the FBI: “In every staff meeting, 80 per cent of the attendees had a gun on them. I eventually grew accustomed to seeing a pistol...

    "Comey said in early June 2003 when announcing the charges. "Martha Stewart is being prosecuted not for who she is, but because of what she did." For her part, Stewart has said she believed Comey was making an example out of her because of her fame. "I'm sure I was an example," she told TMZ's Harvey Levin in an October 2017 episode of Fox's OBJECTified. "And that's it."" snip-- "The charges Comey brought against Stewart related more to what prosecutors alleged was a cover-up than the stock trade itself. According to the New York Times, Comey claimed he could have...

    Of all the cultural norms we have discarded of late, of all the things we held sacred that we no longer do, of all the public feuds that end in ignominy, this is perhaps the worst. Someone has reportedly stolen Martha Stewart’s favorite apple pie dish. This feud goes back a few years, so we’ll start there. In 2015, one of the approximately 39,000 “Real Housewives” of Bravo’s line-up, Countess LuAnn de Lesepps, was having dinner with the U.S. ambassador to Qatar at a fancy New York French restaurant. The one and only Martha Stewart also attended this dinner, and...

    Law James Comey Has A Long History Of Questionable Obstruction Cases From Martha Stewart to Frank Quattrone to Steven Hatfill, former FBI director James Comey has left a long trail of highly questionable obstruction of justice cases that he used to make a name for himself. Mollie Hemingway By Mollie Hemingway June 12, 2017 Following countdown clocks on cable outlets and dramatic claims in the media about what devastating testimony to expect, James Comey sat down before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week. The hearing ended up being a bit of a let-down for critics of President Trump who hoped...

    Before he became FBI director, James Comey lived the Gold Coast high-life in Connecticut as a hedge fund high-roller. Now the besieged Comey - under fire for his surprise letters to Congress about Hillary Clinton's controversial emails that have thrown the presidential election into chaos - is about to take another hit, this time on his palatial $3 million-plus home. Comey bought the estate on more than three acres not far from where Martha Stewart used to live in ritzy Westport, Connecticut, for $3,050,000 in August 2010. He's now had to reduce the price four times down to $2.5 million...

    Martha Stewart says Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” pales in comparison to “the real thing.” In an interview with comedian and talk show host Chelsea Handler, Stewart spoke fondly of her time in women's federal prison. "When you live through something like 'Orange is the New Black' ... the real characters are better," said Stewart, who served five months behind bars in 2004 to 2005 for insider trading. She conceded that she does not watch the Netflix series, premiering its fourth season on June 17. “Too close to home?” Handler asked. “Well, no. It’s not as good as the...

    When Obama carried out his Solyndra con game, he broke the same law that Martha Stewart went to prison for breaking In 2009 the Obama administration gave $535 million to Solyndra, claiming that it would create 4,000 new jobs. However, instead of creating those 4,000 new jobs, the company went bankrupt. It was later revealed that the company’s shareholders and executives had made substantial donations to Obama’s campaign, that the company had spent a large sum of money on lobbying, and that Solyndra executives had had many meetings with White House officials. It was also revealed that the Obama administration had...

    Martha Stewart is recovering from the loss of her CEO to rival Gwyneth Paltrow by axing up to 50 employees. The cuts will hit the sales and marketing departments at Martha Stewart Omnimedia hardest while some workers will be moved to Meredith Corporation. Last week, the 73-year-old's former CEO Lisa Gersh was hired by Paltrow's lifestyle company GOOP, which is currently engaged in a vicious media war with Martha's brand. But staffers were shocked to find out the news because the layoffs had been such a well-kept secret, a source told the New York Daily News. It's not the first...

    There's a lot going in this "Page Six" story about wealthy "builder to the stars" Ben Krupinski, whose daughter, former model Laura Krupinski, accused him of having an affair with Martha Stewart. Most interesting is the insight it offers us into the world of the megarich. Firstly, how they feud ... Page Six has exclusively learned that Krupinski, 66 — worth an estimated $150 million and who counts business moguls Steve Cohen and Leon Black among his clients — has cut off 47-year-old Laura from her $26,000-a-month allowance and thrown her out of a family-owned mansion in Bedford ...

    California Congressman Darrell Issa has evidently gotten his “second wind” and in a Thursday evening interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper regarding Operation Fast and Furious and a similar project in Texas, accused the Justice Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives of lying to Congress. The interview came at the end of a lengthy report on illegal gun walking that appears to have been permitted under the Obama administration in 2009 and 2010 in more places than just Arizona. It may be seen here, and this is what Issa told Cooper: ‘We’ve been lied to by the Department...

    There was a giant serving of frosting when dueling domestic divas Martha Stewart and Rachael Ray bumped into each other at hot New York City restaurant Il Buco Alimentaria & Vineria. The atmosphere froze over when the rival cuisine queens found themselves at nearby tables at the new eatery Thursday night. Witnesses said Stewart, whose daytime television show was recently canceled, was "noticeably glaring in Ray's direction throughout her meal." Meanwhile, Ray, who was seated with Time magazine food writer Josh Ozersky, became visibly uncomfortable -- so much so that after having her appetizer, she left with her main course...

According to The Washington Post's Lisa de Moraes, Stewart wants to take on interview icons Larry King and Barbara Walters: "My favorite interviewers are Larry King [and] Barbara Walters, both of whom are kind of retiring," Stewart said in a conference call Wednesday... "Who's going to take their place as the serious, great interviewer? I'm throwing my name in there," Martha told reporters on a call to talk about the return of "The Martha Stewart Show," which premieres Sept. 13 on the Hallmark Channel. Of...
