    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...

    The estimable New York Times – “all the news that’s fit to print” – receives a tip and the seriousness of the allegation requires them to trip over their ideological enthusiasm:In the process they inadvertently reveal the secret of what makes “news” fit to print – it smears their enemies – and reveals the complete news cycle: evaluate stories and uncorroborated reports for ideological impact, print those that fit the narrative, evaluate the backlash, ignore it for the length of time required to circle the Internet, retract only when absolutely necessary, preferably on page 37, and repeat daily. Oh, and...

    Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher. The investigative book by the veteran Watergate reporter, who has written books about every administration dating back to President Nixon, was powered by excerpts published before the book's public release Tuesday and President Trump's public rejection of it. Trump called the book "a con on the public" consisting of quotes that are "made up frauds" designed to boost Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm...

    A series of text messages released Wednesday reveal that former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok was in contact with reporters at the New York Times and Washington Post regarding stories they published about the FBI’s investigation into alleged collusion between Russia and President Trump’s campaign during the spring of 2017, according to a series of texts obtained by SaraACarter.com.The text messages suggest that Strzok, along with his paramour, former FBI Attorney Lisa Page, had been in contact with reporters from both newspapers. Strzok specifically mentioned two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times writer Michael Schmidt his text message to Page. Strzok...

    Any former White House aide’s opinion about the op-ed will be slightly more interesting than the average joe’s, just because there’s a chance they really do have some insider insight into the author’s identity.But even so: This is so, so stupid.The only real news angle here is what Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, could have possibly done to Omarosa to make himself the subject of this vindictive whispering campaign. “I took some time and went back and looked through all of my emails, particularly emails out of the vice president’s office, because the first time I read the...
  • Does the New York Times have a guilty conscience?

    American Thinker ^ | 09/12/2018 | Monica Showalter
    Just days after printing news that is sure to get a lot of Venezuelans tortured and killed by their regime, the New York Times is now trying to justify its irresponsible coverage by piously lecturing President Trump on avoiding coups d'etats, something he never got involved in. Anyone here smell a guilty conscience? Starting out with a scolding headline, the Times editorial begins with:  Stay Out of Venezuela, Mr. Trump, and continues with this: America shouldn’t be in the coup business. Period. It’s a relief, then, to learn that the Trump administration chose not to aid rebellious leaders in...

    It’s been over a year and a half since Obama left office, but it still bothers me hearing him speak. Between his trying to take credit for the Trump economy and his claim that he, unlike Trump, didn’t “threaten the freedom of the press,” it's hard not to get angry when he speaks because virtually everything he says is a lie. His trying to take credit for Trump's economy was pathetic, but his claim that he was not an enemy of the free press deserves to be called out. “It shouldn’t be Democratic or Republican to say that we don’t...

    Jerome Corsi, a conspiracy theorist and political commentator with connections to the former Trump adviser Roger J. Stone Jr., has been subpoenaed to testify on Friday before the grand jury in the special counsel investigation into Russia’s election interference and whether Trump associates conspired with the effort, his lawyer said on Wednesday. The lawyer, David Gray, said that he anticipates that investigators for the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, plan to ask Mr. Corsi about his discussions with Mr. Stone, who appeared to publicly predict in 2016 that WikiLeaks planned to publish material damaging to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign....

    When Nikki Haley’s name was floated as one of the people most likely to have written the NY Times op-ed my immediate reaction was ‘I don’t think so.’ To me, doing something like this would go against Haley’s entire brand which is to be bold and call people out when they are wrong, whether that’s Russia or Iran or some sleazy author hawking a book. It was just hard for me to imagine her resorting to an anonymous attack. Today, Haley has written a piece for the Washington Post calling out the author of the anonymous op-ed. Haley has a...

    Grasping: South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham gave an interesting take on the “anonymous” op-ed published by a “senior Trump administration official” in The New York Times last week, in which the writer repeated earlier claims from others that the White House is in chaos and the president is unhinged. Appearing on CNN with Wolf Blitzer, Graham said he believes the op-ed is the latest sign of panic from a Deep State that their alleged savior, special counsel Robert Mueller has zip, zero, nada when it comes to his original mandate of finding illicit, nefarious “Russian collusion” with the 2016...

    RCP Video ^ | 9-9-2018 | Ian Schwartz
    New York Times opinion writer Michelle Goldberg (on This Week) said President Obama should not be blamed for the losses endured by the party under his leadership because the party depended on him and thought he "had this" and thus did not mobilize. (snip) ..."I mean that was less about kind of his – his own failures as a campaigner or the fact that his own speeches maybe weren’t up to par as it was a huge failure of party building, a sense that kind of Obama had this so people didn’t need to mobilize." "It's not that Obama gave...

    The Federalist ^ | September 10, 2018 | Willis L. Krumholz
    All of Washington is abuzz after The New York Times released an anonymous op-ed by a “senior” official in the Trump administration. Aside from seeking to undermine the result of an election, the anonymous author is arguing for a bad has-been policy agenda and approach to politics. The American people can roll their eyes and move on from the controversy. This is just another Republican who hasn’t learned anything from the Bush years, and thinks we are back in the year 2000. The answer: vote for Republicans—like the president—who have learned something from the last two decades. The anonymous author...

    There’s little question that he’s talking about Nikki Haley, right? Among his clues:1. The suspect is a she, not a he. 2. The suspect has denied writing the piece. 3. The suspect isn’t in the White House but is high up. 4. The suspect believes she should be president. 5. The suspect is known to rant about Trump and has “purged” her staff of Trump loyalists.The only person “high up” in the administration who fits the first four criteria is Haley. Trump’s other women agency heads — Kirstjen Nielsen, Betsy DeVos, Elaine Chao, Gina Haspel — have no political...

Workers reset the star on Saturday in the face of a vote by the West Hollywood City Council in early August to have the star permanently removed. The Walk of Fame, however, is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, whose President, Leron Gubler, had this to say about the matter: “Any star, which is...

    A bombshell newspaper essay which detailed efforts to sideline Donald Trump from government was “just an obvious attempt to distract attention from this booming economy and [the president’s] record of success”, Vice-President Mike Pence has said. Speaking to CBS’s Face the Nation in an interview for broadcast on Sunday, Pence also denied that White House officials discussed invoking the 25th amendment and removing Trump from power. The comment piece was published by the New York Times on Wednesday, under the title I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration and attributed to a mystery “senior official”. It came...

    President Trump should probably call off the hunt for the “senior official in the...administration" who the New York Times is claiming wrote a damning op-ed for the newspaper. Apparently the “senior official” claims to be part of a group of White House staff trying to thwart the president’s agenda from within. He also claims they seriously considered trying to depose the president using the 25th amendment of the Constitution. Serious stuff. But President Trump should relax and remember it is the New York Times after all. The paper has a scandalous history of lying about the seniority of officials it...
