    Washington Examiner ^ | 19 SEP 2018 | Daniel Chaitin
    "Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said "it's getting close" to the time President Trump's intelligence agency leaders stand up to their boss about his declassification order and quit if he doesn't back down." ""Sooner or later, we will come to a point for what the president demands is so egregious ... that the right thing for them to do, to signal the alarm, to send up the flare is to say if you want this done, Mr. President, it will have to be done by somebody else," Hayden said Wednesday morning on CNN."
  • Summit may be the grand theater Kim needs to show his people

    If North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was searching for the perfect propaganda set piece, something designed to show his people that he's a strong leader pushing inexorably for the long-delayed, long-promised prosperity they deserve, then visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in might be providing him with a unique opportunity. Moon believes that his deep engagement with North Korea is crucial after last year's fears of war, when Washington reacted with fury to a torrent of ever-more-powerful North Korean weapons tests. He argues better ties with North Korea will help South Koreans, and the region, by settling the standoff over...

    When press and camera crews from a number of outlets gathered outside her door — as a sexual assault allegation left the Supreme Court nomination of her husband, Brett Kavanaugh, hanging in the balance — Ashley Estes Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes. According to at least one reporter, CBS’ Kathryn Watson, Kavanaugh offered up cupcakes from Sprinkles, a cupcake bakery in Georgetown. Watson’s tweet spurred several reactions. First, people asked, “why are you at his house?” and criticized the media for camping out at his house.

    Derek Hunter, author of the new book Outrage Inc.: How the Liberal Mob Ruined Science, Journalism, and Hollywood, appears with Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, to discuss the book on C-Span2's "After Words" tonight at 9:00 PM EDT, a repeat from earlier this evening and yesterday. Hunter discusses the tactics and maneuvers used by the left to advance their causes, for example rarely talking about the facts of an issue, which are usually too boring and complicated for most people to follow, but rather presenting their arguments in emotional terms and suggesting that following what their opponents...

    Clinton says Trump supporters don't "fully appreciate what is potential under this presidency." Hillary Clinton predicted Tuesday that President Donald Trump will "wholesale fire people" in the White House and become increasingly unaccountable, if Democrats don't check his power by winning a majority of seats in the House or Senate in the November midterm elections. Clinton made the remarks during the former secretary of state's appearance on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show." "What I worry about, Rachel, is that after this election this president is going to wholesale fire people," Clinton said. " ... And if we [Democrats] don’t have...

    BEIJING – China on Tuesday announced a tariff increase on $60 billion of U.S. products in response to President Donald Trump’s latest duty increase in a dispute over Beijing’s technology policy. The announcement followed a warning by an American business group that a “downward spiral” in their conflict appeared certain following Trump’s penalties on $200 billion of Chinese goods. The Finance Ministry said it was going ahead with plans announced in August for the increases of 10 percent and 5 percent on 5,207 types of U.S. goods. A list released last month included coffee, honey and industrial chemicals. Please see...
  • Leaked NPR Emails: Call Kermit Gosnell a “Doctor” Not an “Abortion Doctor”

    NPR described Kermit Gosnell as an “abortion doctor” back in 2013 when a Philadelphia court convicted him of murdering babies. But last month, the taxpayer-funded radio group rejected an ad that used the exact same term to describe Gosnell, claiming it is not “value neutral,” according to The Daily Beast. The makers of the movie “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” have been hitting roadblocks since they began their project more than four years ago. Their struggles started when the crowdfunding site Kickstarter refused to allow filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney to fundraiser there. They later broke...

    The woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault has been forced out of her home due to death threats, her lawyers said Tuesday. Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) in a letter that the Palo Alto University professor has been effectively forced into hiding over violent messages targeting her and her family. "In the 36 hours since her name became public, Dr. Ford has received a stunning amount of support from her community and from fellow citizens across our country. At the same time, however, her worst fears have...

    While QAnon is 8chan’s most visible success, anons also run many smaller campaigns. These have less obvious connections to QAnon. For example, on Sept. 5 one anon on the /qresearch/ board posted an image of a woman exchanging money and another image of the same woman being escorted out of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. The anon suggested this was evidence she was a paid protester. Another anon combined the images, along with a third close-up image of the woman’s hands holding the money, and formatted the final combined image so it could be easily shared on mainstream social networks. The...
  • Julia Louis Dreyfus Joins High School Pals in Support of Fellow Alum — Brett Kavanaugh's Accuser

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus, a graduate of the all-girls private high school attended by Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault decades ago, has signed a letter in support of her. Louis-Dreyfus, a 1979 graduate of the Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland, tweeted Monday that she joins some 200 alumnae who stand with Ford, 51, a California research psychologist. “We believe Dr. Blasey Ford and are grateful that she came forward to tell her story,” says the draft letter, according to the Huffington Post. “It demands a thorough and independent investigation before the Senate can...

    President Trump in an exclusive interview with Hill.TV said Tuesday he ordered the release of classified documents in the Russia collusion case to show the public the FBI probe started as a “hoax,” and that exposing it could become one of the “crowning achievements” of his presidency. “What we’ve done is a great service to the country, really,” Trump said in a 45-minute, wide-ranging interview in the Oval Office. “I hope to be able to call this, along with tax cuts and regulation and all the things I’ve done… in its own way this might be the most important thing...

    With each successive batch of text messages released between then-FBI agent Peter Strzok and then-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, the evidence supporting a politically motivated Deep State within the federal government spills out into the open. Based on my own experience, this particular set of text messages is the tip of the iceberg. While serving on the House Oversight Committee, I saw firsthand how those in control of our bureaucracy brazenly abuse their power – spying, manipulating and misleading – in an effort to perpetuate their stranglehold on the government. What I witnessed and wrote about in my new book –“The...
  • Senator Mazie Hirono Wants Men to ‘Just Shut Up’

    JUST SHUT UP!!!....wow. As the attacks on the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford continue, and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh repeatedly denies the allegations made against him, lawmakers are speaking out. Senator Mazie Hirono, for one, did not mince words. She held men — especially those in government — responsible for the harrowing experience of coming forward with allegations against a powerful man. “Guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country,” she said at a press conference. “I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step...

    President Donald Trump showed no signs of backing off his highly unprecedented order to declassify various documents and text messages related to the Russia investigation Tuesday, saying he wants it done for "transparency." The move, which has prompted renewed unease about the increasing politicization of intelligence materials, is likely to further inflame tensions between the President and intelligence and law enforcement officials, who have been the target of presidential Twitter tirades and who have voiced concerns in the past about potentially jeopardizing sources and methods.

    There is a lot of funny stuff going on right now with regard to the Ford-Kavanaugh brouhaha. Prior to going public with her accusations against Kavanaugh, Ford scrubbed her social media. Today we learn that her high school has wiped clean the yearbook from Ford's attendance there. https://twitter.com/_ImperatorRex_/status/1042004460543672320But the thing that really caught my attention was a statement from Ford's lawyer Debra Katz. A California psychology professor who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school wants to cooperate with federal lawmakers considering the nomination, but doesn't want to be part of a Washington "bloodletting," her...

    Too PC: If you needed more evidence that taxpayer-subsidized National Public Radio was just another Left-wing propaganda mill for the Democratic Party, this is it. Producers for the upcoming Indy film, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” wanted to run an advertisement on NPR to promote the picture, which is a dramatic biopic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the infamous Philadelphia abortionist who was convicted on multiple counts of murder. But NPR refused the six-figure buy because the ad copy contained the word “abortion."

    The United States' commitment to global development does not look good compared with that of other wealthy countries — and it's likely to get worse. According to an annual index released Tuesday by the Center for Global Development that ranks 27 of the world's wealthiest countries, the U.S. scored dead last on foreign aid contributions and quality — despite being the largest donor in dollar amount. That's because in 2017, it allocated a mere 0.18 percent of its gross national income for development assistance. That is well short of the 0.7 percent that wealthy countries have committed to strive for...
