    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday it was "inappropriate" for Donald Trump to brand German Chancellor Angela Merkel's refugee policy "a catastrophic mistake". "I thought frankly it was inappropriate for a president-elect of the United States to be stepping into the politics of other countries in a quite direct manner," Kerry told CNN's Christiane Amanpour during a one-day visit to London in the last week of the Obama administration. "He will have to speak to that. As of Friday, he is responsible for that relationship." Trump, who will be sworn in as president on Friday, had said...
  • If Sarah Sanders Were to Smack the Press

    02/16/2018 10:02:07 AM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | February 16, 2018 | Brent Bozell
    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is constantly hammered by "Gotcha!" questions from reporters in the briefing room. This was dramatically underlined when the story broke about former White House staff secretary Rob Porter being accused of domestic violence by two ex-wives, one of whom even brandished a picture with a black eye. By the time it was over, Sanders had one, too. It didn't look good, and nothing Sanders said from the lectern was going to be good enough. The same outlets that couldn't muster more than one question regarding former President Bill Clinton's alleged rape of Juanita...
  • Robert Mueller just made it impossible for Trump to call the special counsel probe a 'total hoax'

    (CNN)On Friday afternoon, the Justice Department announced that special counsel Robert Mueller had indicted 13 Russian nationals for their roles in attempted meddling in the 2016 election.Most of these people do not live in the United States, and you can bet your bottom dollar that Russia won't be extraditing them any time soon. But that's not the point. The point is this: The indictments of a baker's dozen of Russians gives us a very clear window into not only the depth and breadth of the Mueller investigation, but also makes crystal clear what the Russians wanted in the 2016 election...

    It illustrates the appalling depth to which the network is willing to go to attack Trump by merchandising a childs death to advance its political agenda This morning, February 16, 2018, CNN sank to a new journalistic low by exploiting the grief of a mother mourning her slain Florida high school-age daughter. Just after shed spent two hours making funeral arrangements for Alyssa Alhadeff, the network handed Lori Alhadeff a microphone, and faced her toward their camera where she yelled at President Trump to do something to stop this from happening.
  • Nolte (Trump) Hate Fatigue: CNN Viewership Collapses 30%

    Massive layoffs, a cancerous fake news crisis, and the humiliating (and expensive) implosion of its digital platform, appear to be the least of CNNs problems. Because on top of all that, when compared to last year, the far-left cable channel has lost -30 percent of its primetime viewers and -23 percent of its total day viewers. The viewership problems for the anti-Trump outlet are breathtaking, especially when compared to its competition. Throughout the week of February 5, CNN could only scrape together an average 674,000 total day viewers. During the all-important primetime hours, CNN averaged only 888,000 viewers. Those numbers...

    At his first polygraph test to enter the CIA, the future director had a secret. John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US? "I froze," Brennan said during a panel discussion about diversity in the intelligence community at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual conference. "This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,"

    FULL TITLE: Jeffrey Toobin Mentioned The Time Trump Accused Obama Of Wiretapping Him And CNN New Days Hosts Immediately Changed The Topic CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin mentioned allegations of former President Barack Obama wiretapping President Donald Trumps campaign, Friday on New Day, and hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman couldnt change the subject fast enough. Toobin began the segment claiming average Americans couldnt follow along with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) memo because it was too complex for them. I think the Nunes memo is such a complicated story, frankly, that ordinary civilians have a hard time following,...

    Journalist Carl Bernstein on Sunday expressed doubts that President Trump would sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, citing the presidents compulsive, continual lying. I think many of us will believe it when we see him sit down with Mueller. Look, we have no reason to believe almost anything that DT says. What is so extraordinary about him and his presidency is the incessant, compulsive, continual lying, Bernstein said on CNN. Weve never had a president who lies like this, certainly in the modern era. Even Nixon, the Watergate reporter added.

    We have been fed an endless diet of Trump-Russia collusion by the media. It is based on the dossier compiled by one Christopher Steele. The more we learn about it, the more curious it becomes. The dossier was the basis for the FBI to secure a warrant to spy on Carter Page. That in itself is very curious. Page has been on the FBI radar since at least 2014. Page is thought to have helped the FBI snare Russian spiesin 2013 back then although he denies it. You'd think that the FBi would be able to determine if Page was...

    During a panel discussion on Fox News The Kelly File this evening, host Megyn Kelly wondered what the fallout would be if acting DNC head Donna Brazile were a member of the GOP when she purportedly provided Hillary Clinton with debate questions while she was at CNN. Fox News contributor Richard Fowler said one of the bigger issues that should be discussed is how Brazile got these questions from the network. He then attempted to pivot the conversation to Donald Trump, stating that he is constantly putting his foot in his mouth, taking the attention away from these controversies. Kelly...

    James Comey is a legend in the mind of Josh Campbell, his former special assistant at the FBI. In an op-ed for USA Today, Campbell called his former boss a giant of a man with an even bigger heart, whose focus was always on trying to understand and improve the lives of others. Campbell also wrote an op-ed for the New York Times in which he stated he was leaving the FBI because of relentless attacks on the bureau. Campbell claimed that these attacks undermine not just Americas premier law enforcement agency but also the nations security. Thus, he said,...
  • CNN Formally Severs Ties With Donna Brazile: Completely Uncomfortable With Question-Sharing

    CNN has formally severed ties with commentator Donna Brazile, a spokesman confirmed to Mediaite Monday. CNN and ABC News had both suspended Brazile after she was tapped to serve as acting DNC head following the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. In theory, that arrangement was only temporary, but CNN made it permanent as late as two weeks ago in the wake of hacked emails showing she provided questions in advance to the Hillary Clinton campaign.

    ANALYSIS/OPINION: One of the more disconcerting revelations from the long-anticipated FISA memo released by the House Intelligence Committee Friday was that the FBI had barely begun a verification process of the Russian dossier when they used it to justify a FISA surveillance warrant on Carter Page. Meanwhile the media refused to publish the dossier allegations because they could not be verified. In short: The media had higher standards than the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The dossier, a compilation of political opposition research compiled at the behest of the Hillary Clinton for President campaign, was peddled to multiple media outlets in...

    (CNN) - The immediate result of President Donald Trump's decision to block the release of a Democratic memo on the Russia investigation is to expose him to charges of hypocrisy. But the deeper question -- one that has huge implications for the fate of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation -- is whether Trump is using his power to thwart any attempt by Congress to hold him accountable. Trump on Friday declined to release the Democratic rebuttal of a Republican memo he inaccurately claimed "totally vindicates" him in the Russia probe, warning that the new document compromised intelligence sources and methods....

    For more than a year and a half, the media have gone all-in on reporting every possible angle of President Donald Trumps alleged collusion with Russia. No story update has been too small, no encounter with a Russian too inconsequential, and no anonymous source too sketchy to generate outsize coverage and histrionic claims from major media.But as the Russian collusion story disintegrates, another interesting story ascends. Investigations by multiple congressional committees as well as an investigation by the inspector general of the Department of Justice have shown irregularities in the handling of the most politically sensitive probes in recent memory:...
