    Former FBI director James Comey is formally refusing to answer questions submitted to him by a bipartisan group of senators, suggesting he no longer must do so as a private citizen. Comey sent an email from his private account last week rebuffing the seven questions that had been submitted to him by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley and the committee’s ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein after Comey’s final testimony as FBI director to the panel last month. Comey was fired by President Donald Trump shortly after his appearance. Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., joined in the request...

    FBI Director James Comey warned Wednesday that Americans should not have expectations of “absolute privacy,” adding that he planned to finish his term leading the FBI. “There is no such thing as absolute privacy in America; there is no place outside of judicial reach,” Comey said at a Boston College conference on cybersecurity. He made the remark as he discussed the rise of encryption since 2013 disclosures by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden revealed sensitive US spy practices. “Even our communications with our spouses, with our clergy members, with our attorneys are not absolutely private in America,” Comey...
  • San Jose Mayor Criticizes Both Political Camps: Trump Stirs 'Antagonism,' 'No Place for Violence'

    The mayor of San Jose criticized both sides of the political aisle following an evening of rowdy, and sometimes violent protesting, during a Donald Trump campaign stump. “There is absolutely no place for violence against people who are simply exercising their rights to participate in the political process," Mayor Sam Liccardo said Friday of the Thursday night rally, where a police officer was assaulted, a woman was egged, and others were bruised outside the San Jose Convention Center. At the same time, Liccardo also lashed out at Trump, saying in part: “It’s a sad statement about our political discourse that...

    February 26, 2016, 04:29 pm Melissa Harris-Perry boycotting her own MSNBC show: report By Mark Hensch Melissa Harris-Perry is refusing to host her MSNBC show this weekend after presidential election coverage repeatedly pre-empted her, according to The New York Times. “I will not be used as a tool for their purposes,” Harris-Perry wrote in an email obtained by the Times. "I am not a token, mammy or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by [NBC News chairman Andrew] Lack, [MSNBC President Phil] Griffin or MSNBC. I love our show. I want it back.” Harris-Perry resents the show’s pre-emption...

    Frustrated with what she described as a lack of editorial control, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry told the New York Times on Friday that she will not appear on her show this weekend. "Our show was taken--without comment or discussion or notice--in the midst of an election season," Harris-Perry wrote in an email to colleagues that was obtained by the Times. "After four years of building an audience, developing a brand and developing trust with our viewers, we were effectively and utterly silenced." The MSNBC host expressed frustration at having her regular time slot--10 a.m. to noon on Saturday and Sunday--taken...

    Her name is Alyssa Rosenberg and I will not link to her wretched piece on the movie which is at the Washington Post, but in her twitter account she boasts of how her husband works for Media Matters. Why does the Washington Post allow her to write anything which is obviously so partisan? She makes no attempt to even hide it. What a partisan hack.

    During an appearance at a Jon Huntsman “No Labels” event, a female audience member named Lauren Batchelder played the role of a female antagonist toward candidate Donald Trump. ADVERTISEMENT However, Ms. Batchelder is not just an average audience member. She’s a paid political operative of the GOP and a paid staff member of Team Jeb Bush: NH 6 Within minutes of her scripted performance at the event, the producers of CNN were quickly editing soundbites and framing a narrative.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) complained that House Republicans are refusing to bring some Senate-passed legislation to the floor—but dismissed the question of when he might bring many House-passed measures up for a Senate vote. “I can give you a long list of things we haven’t done,” Reid said at his weekly press conference when asked if he would ever bring languished GOP bills up for a vote. … Reid, as majority leader in the Senate, controls the floor schedule—deciding which bills will come to the floor and when. When asked again if he might bring any of...
  • Sen. Harkin: "Cult Fringe" Holding Up Debt Ceiling Increase

    07/20/2011 12:23:31 PM PDT · by MissesBush · 110 replies
    Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) calls Republicans "dead-beat debtors" among other things during a Democratic press conference on Wednesday morning. "The debate and fight is not between Democrats and Republicans. It's between some Republicans and their sort of cult fringe as I refer to them out there," Harkin said. "Democrats are willing to do whatever is necessary to raise the debt ceiling, not for future borrowing but to pay the debts that we racked up in the past. Which, mostly was racked up by a Republican House, a Republican Senate and a Republican President in the last 8 years. Yet, they're...

    Nancy Pelosi says Obama created more jobs in 2010 than G. W. Bush did in eight years. In a post-State of the Union speech interview, the fired speaker and current minority leader was quick to dish out more Democrat propaganda to shore up what she thought was an excellent SotU speech by the president. Proving the Democrats are anything but for a new, civil tone, contrary to the calls for just that by Obama, Pelosi also tore into the GOP, defaming them as the “Just Say No To Jobs Party” for their repeated opposition to Obama’s “job-creating” initiatives in his...
  • The Queasy Side of Theodore Roosevelt’s Diplomatic Voyage

    02/23/2010 5:34:05 PM PST · by kcvl · 18 replies · 596+ views
    James Bradley’s incendiary new book about Theodore Roosevelt is not really packed with secrets. Much of the material it discusses has long been hidden in plain sight. But Roosevelt biographers often subscribe to certain orthodoxies, and one of them is this: When Roosevelt made noxiously racist and ethnocentric remarks about Anglo-Saxon greatness, so what? He was just voicing the tenets of his time. Mr. Bradley, the author of “Flags of Our Fathers,” does not simply cite Roosevelt’s egregious talk. He presents this much-ignored aspect of Roosevelt’s thinking with sharp specificity (“I am so angry with that infernal little Cuban republic...

    Now that Barack Obama is assuming the presidency, partisan criticism is suddenly passé. Really, it's all just so churlish, so "yesterday." Just ask Chris Matthews. In the course of cheerleading the MSNBC coverage of Hillary Clinton's confirmation hearing today, Matthews suggested that the media shouldn't cover the Republican National Committee's criticism of Clinton. The comments came during the Hardball host's chat with Newsweek's Jonathan Alter. A few minutes earlier, Matthews had assured us that those who had the privilege of knowing Hillary personally were aware of what a "wonderful" person she is. Then it was time to attack Republicans for...

    Since the revelation that Richard Armitage, a former high-ranking official in the State Department, was the source of the much-ballyhooed Valerie Plame "leak," many in the media have refused to touch the story with a ten-foot pole. This was quite a turnaround since before the Armitage involvement was known, many journalists believed the CIA leak story was one worth pursuing on a daily basis. Some even believed it could bring down the Bush White House, or at least end the careers of Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. One of the biggest media figures boycotting the Plame story has been MSNBC...

    SNIP.... MINOR EDITINGMAC Cosmetics has censored Sandra Bernhard for bashing the GOP. The cosmetics giant, owned by Estée Lauder, got hundreds of complaints after it posted an online ad this week for its Plushglass lip gloss in which the balloon-lipped comic does some free-form ranting, including a riff about an "intimidated, frightened, right-wing Republican thin-lipped bitch." But Mac oddly didn't cut a line in which Bernhard cheekily discusses the bodily fluids of a horny barnyard bird.

    WASHINGTON, April 22 — In 1998, when President Bill Clinton ordered military strikes against a suspected chemical weapons factory in Sudan, Mary O. McCarthy, a senior intelligence officer assigned to the White House, warned the president that the plan relied on inconclusive intelligence, two former government officials said. Ms. McCarthy's reservations did not stop the attack on the factory, which was carried out in retaliation for Al Qaeda's bombing of two American embassies in East Africa. But they illustrated her willingness to challenge intelligence data and methods endorsed by her bosses at the Central Intelligence Agency. On Thursday, the C.I.A....
