  • Carl Bernstein: Trump’s Media Attacks ‘More Treacherous’ than Nixon’s

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Just when you thought the MSM might be running out of hyperbole about President Trump’s criticism of the media, along comes Carl Bernstein . . . On CNN’s Reliable Sources today, Bernstein unleashed a torrent of accusations about the president. Lowlights: Trump’s attacks on the media “more treacherous” than Nixon’s. Apophasis alert: “I’m not about to say anything comparing Hitler and Trump”, but Hitler and Stalin also used the phrase “enemy of the people” about the media. Trump is “leading a demagogic attack on the institutions of free democracy.” “This is a terrible time we’re living in.” View the video...

    What if it’s true; what if the NSA has copies of all Hillary’s missing emails? And why wouldn’t they? They have copies of everyone else’s.Still, no reason to get excited, everyone knows they were all about yoga. So can we just get back to talking about how Trump disses Muslims and doesn’t have a chance against St. Hillary? And stop worrying about all those leak rumors; they have been grossly exaggerated. Nothing a little plumbers putty won’t fix.We just need to find ourselves a few plumbers.Posted from: Michelle Obama’s Mirror
  • After Servergate: The Rule of Law is a Big Joke

    The rule of law died a little last Tuesday when FBI director James Comey announced the Bureau's findings concerning Hillary Clinton and her illegal email server. After a short speech in which he detailed the findings of the investigation, he recommended against charging her with anything. You didn't think it would happen any other way, did you? I certainly didn't. As blatant as her lawbreaking was--some of which was not even discussed in Comey's speech--it seemed fanciful to believe that Hillary Clinton, the ultimate insider, would actually do the perp walk. As a former First Lady, former senator, and former...

    That much of the world (in partnership with U.S. “elites”) treats the hapless American taxpayer about like Mr Haney treated Oliver Douglas, Bernie Maddoff treated his clients and the world treats Rodney Dangerfield has become a campaign theme of enormous popularity and consequence. I think you know for which campaigner.Well, there’s one issue one which the American taxpayer can look across the oceans, touch his nose with his thumb, extend his hand, and fan his fingers while snickering “NEENER!...NEENER!...NEENER!--You SUCKERS!” You see, amigos: the taxpayers of nations from France to Spain to Germany, from South Korea to Japan and from...
  • CNN Panel Ties 'Racism' to 'Obama Derangement Syndrome'; Hits Reagan, Bush

    On Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS on CNN, host Zakaria seemed to be doing an impression of the type of super-biased political panel seen in the worst of days of MSNBC in the form of four liberals pitted against one moderate Republican and no conservatives discussing the role of racism in opposition to President Barack Obama. The accusations of racism against conservatives included The New Yorker editor David Remnick charging that George H.W. Bush used "racist memes" to win the 1988 presidential campaign and repeating a discredited claim of Ronald Reagan of using a racist "dog whistle" by talking states' rights...

    I reproduce this one from Roger Stone in its entirety… Vladimir Lenin said, “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.” I can’t think of a better description of Ted Cruz’s relationship with the DC-Wall Street Establishment – Cruz being the scoundrel of course. Cruz’s claim of not being a tool of the political elite is like Bill Clinton telling the world, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Webster’s definition of a scoundrel is a dishonest or unscrupulous person, and Cruz...

    Daily Caller ^ | 11/27/2015 | Matt K. Lewis
    I have a column up at RollCall today suggesting that the GOP should root for a Ted Cruz vs. Marco Rubio clash. Cruz, skilled at channeling indignation, is a better choice than Trump—if the “populist” lane wants a candidate who can beat Hillary. Likewise, Rubio, who can communicate compassion and optimism, would stand a much better chance in the so-called “establishment” lane than Jeb Bush.But aside from the fact that Cruz has a better chance of beating Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump, I’m constantly hearing from Republicans who believe he is more cunning and “flexible” than he is an ideologue....

    <p>Richard Nixon came into office in 1969 with 550,000 conscripts in Vietnam, 200 to 400 coming home dead every week, no exit strategy, and anti-war and race riots constantly erupting all over the country. There were no relations with China and no substantive discussions in progress with the Soviet Union or the principal Arab states. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy had been assassinated in 1968, and the routine skyjacking of civil airliners had begun. By 1972, Nixon had withdrawn from Vietnam with a non-Communist government still in place in Saigon, had opened relations with China, signed the greatest arms-control agreement in history with the USSR, ended school segregation while avoiding the lunacy of court-ordered busing of millions of schoolchildren around the metropolitan areas of the country for “racial balance” (i.e., chaos), started a peace process in the Middle East, founded the Environmental Protection Agency, and abolished the draft. There were no more riots, skyjackings, or high-level assassinations.</p>

    October 16 marks the fortieth anniversary of the final report of the Watergate Special Prosecution Force (WSPF)—the liberal elites’ victory lap after driving President Richard Nixon from office, imprisoning his aides, and realigning political power without the inconvenience of an election. As more and more evidence of prosecutorial misconduct has emerged from documents at National Archives, it’s fitting to take another look at what the WSPF claimed in its report and what it left out. Describing itself as “an independent investigatory and prosecutive agency within the Department of Justice,” the WSPF boasted of the “unprecedented number of high Government officials”...
  • Sam Youngman: “Conway sweats. A lot.”

    09/20/2015 12:56:48 PM PDT · by Republican Wildcat · 6 replies
    Over at the Lexington Herald-Leader, political writer Sam Youngman offers a blistering critique of Jack Conway’s performance at Tuesday night’s debate. Not only did Youngman compare Conway to “A 1980s commercial for antiperspirant,” but said: “Between the Al Gore body language and the 1960 Richard Nixon sweating, Conway looked ill at ease on the stage, and he desperately needs strong debate performances from here on out to break through a political environment that is potentially apocalyptic for Democrats.” Conway’s answer to a question about a sexual harassment case bothered Youngman (among others) “The larger problem for Conway came from some...

    Former US President Richard Nixon told a US grand jury "I practically blew my stack" when he learned of the long gap on a White House tape sought in the Watergate scandal investigation, according to transcripts released on Thursday. In one of the biggest political scandals in US history, much has been made of the 18 1/2-minute gap on tapes of Nixon's White House conversations. The key question -- did it include incriminating information about the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters by his campaign operatives? Nixon spent hours before the grand jury on June 23 and 24, 1975,...

    At what point will members of the Obama administration, from the president himself to John Kerry and other senior officials, down to the workaday folks of the West Wing, decide that Hillary's email scandal is doing intolerable damage to whatever's left of their legacy, and decide to pull the plug? A significant line was crossed on today's Morning Joe, when Joe Scarborough flatly and repeatedly accused John Kerry's State Department of engaging in a "cover-up" on Hillary's behalf. How much longer will Kerry be willing to sacrifice his reputation on the altar of Hillary's presidential ambitions? View the video here.

    “An essay published in Newsweek, The Washington Spectator and at least one other website argues that a flag honoring U.S. troops who have been captured or gone missing is actually ‘racist’ and deserves to be treated with the same hostility as the Confederate flag. ‘You know that racist flag?’ writes Rick Perlstein. ‘The one that supposedly honors history but actually spreads a pernicious myth? And is useful only to venal right-wing politicians who wish to exploit hatred by calling it heritage? It’s past time to pull it down.’ No, Perlstein isn’t talking about the Confederate flag, but actually the POW/MIA...

    Ben Wattenberg died this week at the age of 81. He gave me my first job in Washington, as his research assistant at the American Enterprise Institute, a Washington think tank. (I returned to AEI as a fellow a few years ago, my office just a few doors down from where Ben used to work.) Ben was one of the last star pundits of what might be called the Old Order, before cable news and the Internet transformed the landscape. When everyone was rushing to CNN to shout at each other on "Crossfire," he launched a PBS show called "Think...

    President Richard Nixon was drunk during the height of the 1973 Yom Kippur War, according to veteran journalist Tim Weiner writing for Politico magazine. Weiner’s book, One Man Against the World: The Tragedy of Richard Nixon, makes the charge. The former New York Times reporter claims that a call recorded by Henry Kissinger proves Nixon was drunk on the fifth day of the crisis after Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack on Israel which caught their Intelligence agency by surprise. It became clear in the hours after the 1973 Yom Kippur attack that the Arabs had surprised Israeli forces...

    Coach is Right ^ | 6/21/15 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    Circulating throughout Conservative sites this week is information about Hillary being fired by her Watergate supervisor, US HOUSE Judiciary Watergate committee counsel Jerry Zeifman. A close analysis of this bold assertion puts the whole flap into real perspective. When asked in an interview why he terminated Hillary’s employment, Zeifman responded, “Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer; she conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the HOUSE, the rules of the committee and the rules on confidentiality.” A Rush Limbaugh transcript stays very close to this syntax. In an article written after a 2008 campaign...

    Annd it came to pass that the earth turned and another campaign season spun into view and the liberal commentariat rose from its siesta to begin its usual moping about the perverse political powers wielded by the Fox News Channel. This time, the sentinel waking the commentariat to the alleged Fox menace is not a liberal but a self-described conservative, Bruce Bartlett. Bartlett, a prolific writer on politics and economics who has worked for congressional Republicans (Ron Paul and Jack Kemp), Republican presidents, (Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush) and conservative and libertarian policy shops, broke with his party a...

    Did LBJ have JFK killed? This critical question has endured ever since that fateful day of 50 years ago—Nov. 22, 1963. Former Nixon White House advisor Roger Stone makes this central argument in his new book, The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ. Stone’s interesting narrative isn’t another “conspiracy theory” book to add to the already voluminous number of fantastical JFK assassination claims. Roger tells Reason Magazine Editor, Nick Gillespie that, “The whole term ‘conspiracy theorists’ is a pejorative that the mainstream media uses to denigrate anyone who questions the government’s version on virtually anything… I’m not talking...
