  • Did Trump Commit Treason at Putin Meeting? Here's What Lawyers Say

    There are many things you can accuse President Donald Trump of. And treason is now apparently one of those after his controversial press conference with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin at their summit in Helsinki, Finland. But do lawyers agree? “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” tweeted John Brennan, the former CIA director. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Brennan’s premise is that at the press conference, Trump appeared to...
  • GOP strategist: Trump base wants 'anyone who’s darker than a latte deported' (Rick Wilson)

    GOP strategist and CNN contributor Rick Wilson said Wednesday that Trump supporters "want anybody who’s darker than a latte deported" while arguing that some in the administration actually enjoy seeing migrant children being separated from their families. The remarks come as the White House faces considerable criticism from lawmakers on the both sides of the aisle over the "zero tolerance" policy that separated children from their parents after crossing the U.S. border illegally, despite Trump signing an executive order on June 20 to end the practice. A federal judge said the administration needs to expedite the reunification process after it...
  • Scarborough: Trump Picked Kavanaugh “to Protect Himself” from Prosecution

    Sounding like Elizabeth Warren and other Dems with their eyes on 2020, Joe Scarborough is claiming that President Trump chose Brett Kavanaugh as his SCOTUS nominee for the basest of reasons: “to protect himself” from prosecution. On today’s Morning Joe, referring to a 2009 law review article Kavanaugh wrote in which he suggested that presidents be shielded from civil and criminal litigation while in office, Scarborough said: “There is no doubt . . . make no mistake of it, this is the reason . . . that’s why he has selected Judge Kavanaugh, because of this, single, 2009 article ....

    Looks like the two sides of the North Korean nuclear crisis have their wires crossed. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo led two days of talks with the Kim regime and offered a positive take on progress as he left Pyongyang. The North Koreans disagreed: BREAKING: North Korea Foreign Ministry says talks with Pompeo 'regrettable,' accuses US of unilateral demands for denuclearization.— The Associated Press (@AP) July 7, 2018 North Korea says high-level talks with a U.S. delegation led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were “regrettable” and has accused Washington of trying to unilaterally pressure the country into abandoning...

    American Thinker ^ | 07/07/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    Jim Jordan has been one of the most effective investigators in pursuing the cabal that weaponized the FBI and intelligence agencies to fight the candidacy and then the presidency of Donald Trump.  Rather than answer him with facts and documents, the left is out to destroy him, which tells anyone paying attention that he is on to something. This campaign began to tar him with scandal, no matter how far-fetched.  George Rasley explains at Conservative HQ: NBC News published an article on Tuesday, quoting Mike DiSabato and Dunyasha Yetts, two former Ohio State University wrestlers, claiming that when Jim Jordan worked as assistant...

    Jordan said the timing of the allegations is suspect, since they come immediate after a contentious hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and also during the ongoing discussion that the congressman may run for speaker of the House. He said the law firm representing some of the accusers, Perkins Coie, is the same firm that was involved with the Trump-Russia dossier.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – San Fran Nan and her fellow Democrats recoiled in horror at yet another fantastic jobs report, as the private sector added another 213,000 new jobs in June, once again beating analyst expectations. The jobs report includes new record low unemployment for Hispanic workers and continued record low unemployment for Black workers. Thus, Democrats went into a panic, with Pelosi issuing a statement claiming that “Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families.” Because lying shamelessly is all they got. A classic case of...

    As FBI director Christopher Wray started giving his response to the blistering report on the Hillary Clinton investigation, I hoped he would accept the findings as proof the agency lost its way and must be shaken to its foundation. By the time he finished talking, I felt ­naive for daring to hope. Wray’s performance was worse than disappointing. It was infuriating proof that it will take more than one election to change the corrupt culture of Washington.

    CNN's Jake Tapper on Tuesday weighed in on the Trump-Kim summit arguing that other presidents did not meet with North Korean leaders to avoid giving their dictatorships “prestige.” “It's not as if other presidents couldn't have done this,” Tapper said of Trump's historic meeting with the North Korean leader. “It's that they didn't want to.” Tapper, the host of CNN shows “The Lead” and “State of the Union,” prefaced his comments that past presidents decided not to meet for direct talks with North Korea because “the concern was, you don't want to give North Korea that kind of prestige.” “You...

    [snip] Arnold - who was a writer on the original Rosanne series - claimed that Barr's politics and social media showed that she was obsessed with the conspiracy theories that Donald Trump has been feeding to the masses. Arnold wrote for the show in 1988 and married Barr in 1990 but would divorce in 1994. 'This monkey thing is something that she tweeted before about black people, it's a meme that she and thousands of her alt-right fans do. They love to call black people monkeys, it's not a one time joke,' Arnold explained.

    Folks, let’s be honest about a couple of things. One, how is the cancellation of a television show a presidential-level subject of conversation? Second, but now that it is; does watching Roseanne make me a bigot? The 2018 reboot of the show that garnered critical acclaim for its portrayal of a struggling working class family in the Rust Belt of America got off to solid ratings. It had been renewed for a second season—and liberal America was again perplexed. How could this happen? How could a sitcom about people we consider inferior in everyday do well? Who cares about...

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said President Donald Trump was using MS-13 “to paint Latinos as dangerous in our country.” De Blasio said, “Let’s talk about the speech in Long Island. That was painful. I went over the transcript again because I couldn’t believe it. It’s not about MS-13. It’s about an attempt to paint Latinos as dangerous in our country. Our police department rejects that. We became the safest big city in America because we worked with immigrant communities, they helped police make the city the safest big city in America....

    Editor's note: Scott Jennings, a CNN contributor, is a former special assistant to President George W. Bush and former campaign adviser to Sen. Mitch McConnell. (CNN) The shameful smearing of Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician who was nominated by President Donald Trump to be Secretary of the Veterans Affairs Administration and has now withdrawn, is example #967 of why people hate Washington D.C. and were in a revolutionary mood at the 2016 ballot box. Montana Senator Jon Tester in particular ought to be ashamed of publicly airing unproven allegations against a Navy Admiral and doctor who has served...
  • Fusion GPS tried to tie Trump to Clinton’s pedophile pal Epstein as part of smear campaign

    Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm whose Democrat-financed Russia dossier fueled an FBI investigation into Donald Trump, pitched other stories about the Republican presidential candidate to Washington reporters, including an attempt to tie him to a convicted pedophile who was once buddies with former President Bill Clinton. Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Fusion founder Glenn Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting sex from an underage girl. The Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, far short of Mr. Clinton’s 20-plus plane rides on Epstein’s “Lolita...

    One of the women accusing Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of assaulting her as a teenager said on Friday she added the date and venue to an inscription from Moore in her high school yearbook, prompting attacks on her credibility and the competence of her lawyer, Gloria Allred. Many conservatives accused the attorney of mishandling the situation and claimed she'd essentially handed victory to Moore just four days before the election. Beverly Young Nelson told ABC News she amended an inscription from Moore in her high school yearbook, adding the date and location. Nelson maintained the rest of the note...

    Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson, with lawyer Gloria Allred in tow, conducted a press conference today pushing back against the idea that Moore’s yearbook signature was “forged,” despite admitting that she did add the date and location afterwards. The yearbook note in question reads “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A. 12-22-77 Olde Hickory House.” Allred told the press conference that her client had always meant to only include the signature and the Christmas greeting as being written by Moore, saying that she had the signature analyzed and it...

    Duck everybody, they’ll keep dumping their sleaze daily on the World Wide Web until they bring down the president “YO!” to Hillary Rodham Clinton and her shrill mainstream media shills: We get it! Sexual harassment—systemically ignored for decades—has become an overnight media sensation ignited by the insatiable venom of an embittered Hillary Clinton and her loyalists. In their own words: “The abrupt firing of NBC “Today” co-host Matt Lauer announced Wednesday prompted cheers among Hillary Clinton’s loyalists who feel that he was extraordinarily mean to her — and soft on President Trump — during the 2016 presidential campaign.” (Washington Examiner,...

    Gena Richardson says she was a high school senior working in the men’s department of Sears at the Gadsden Mall when a man approached her and introduced himself as Roy Moore. “He said, ‘You can just call me Roy,’ ” says Richardson, who says this first encounter happened in the fall of 1977, just before or after her 18th birthday, as Moore, then a 30-year-old local attorney, was gaining a reputation for pursuing young women at the mall in Gadsden, Ala. His overtures caused one store manager to tell new hires to “watch out for this guy,” another young woman...
