Posted By: JoniTx- 5/23/2018 2:53:01 PM     Post Reply
Democrat Rep. Al Green (D-TX) had harsh words for President Trump late Tuesday, warning that if Democrats retake the House of Representatives in November, they´ll begin the 2019 legislative session with articles of impeachment, even if Trump hasn´t done anything to require it. Speaking to C-Span, Rep. Green suggested that he has the "right and privilege" to impeach the president, even absent evidence that the president has committed "high crimes" or "misdemeanors" by virtue of the U.S. Constitution. "There’s a good likelihood there will be articles of impeachment” brought against the President, Rep. Green said.

President Donald Trump´s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, had his White House security clearance restored Wednesday, a person familiar with the matter said, after months of uncertainty stemming in part from his role in the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. Kushner was stripped of his interim clearance in February amid an overhaul of procedures governing access to the nation´s most sensitive secrets following the resignation of Rob Porter, the President´s staff secretary, who had been allowed to remain in his post for months despite allegations of spouse abuse. The Mueller probe has also hung

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a joint hearing on Tuesday to continue the conversation about freedom of speech on college campuses. With the intention to better understand the climate on college campuses, propose solutions, and uphold the First Amendment, the committees invited experts who are “at the forefront of this debate.” “There has been a trend of intolerance against those voicing unpopular ideas or speech being disagreeable or offensive, by some students and faculty at some colleges and institutions,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio. “This is occurring across the ideological

Missouri Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill trails not one but two Republican challengers in head-to-head matchups, according to a poll released Tuesday. The poll by Gravis Marketing — commissioned by Republican candidate Austin Peterson — shows the incumbent trailing state Attorney General Josh Hawley and libertarian-leaning Petersen by more than the margin of error. (Tweet) “In the first match-up, Hawley was picked by 50 percent of respondents and McCaskill was chosen by 43 percent. In the second, 56 percent of respondents chose Petersen, and 40 percent picked McCaskill. The margin of error for the survey was

The National Rifle Association´s Political Victory Fund raised about 2.75 times as much money in April as the leading gun-control PACs combined, filings with the Federal Election Commission revealed on Tuesday. The NRA´s total of $1,852,323.28 represents a retreat from the record amount the group raised in March but is still more than the top three gun-control PACs combined.

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision. The judge stopped short,

Report: Rank-and-File FBI Agents
Eager to Blow Whistle on Comey,
Holder, Lynch
Breitbart Big Government, by Joshua Caplan    Original Article

A new report claims that a significant number of rank-and-file FBI agents are chomping at the bit to expose Obama-era leaders, alleging corruption and even criminal violations of the law. These agents are signaling that the only way they can safely and legally blow the whistle is if Congress subpoenas them individually to provide information about their former bosses. “There are agents all over this country who love the bureau and are sickened by [James] Comey’s behavior and [Andrew] McCabe and [Eric] Holder and [Loretta] Lynch and the thugs like [John] Brennan–who despise the fact that the bureau was used

What Changed? The Same Media Who
Excuse Bob Mueller Abused Ken Starr

Today’s journalists routinely assert that it is “extreme,” “dangerous,” and possibly even criminal for the White House – or anyone else, for that matter – to criticize an investigation into the President. But twenty years ago, Independent Counsel Ken Starr was savaged by the same liberal media during his investigation of then-President Bill Clinton. At that time, Starr was harangued as a “partisan” and “inept prosecutor,” and a “peeping Tom.” On Monday evening, MSNBC host Chris Matthews shared his take on the Trump administration’s attitude towards Mueller while hosting Hardball: “President Trump is indicating today that he’s

Dawnta Anthony Harris, who is 16, had been charged with first-degree murder on Tuesday, one day after Officer Caprio was fatally struck by a vehicle. Harris admitted to a detective that he "drove at the officer." (Snip) Caprio, who was 29, was run over after responding to a suspicious vehicle

The Trump Rationale

Why exactly did nearly half the country vote for Donald Trump? Why also did the arguments of Never Trump Republicans and conservatives have marginal effect on voters? Despite vehement denunciations of the Trump candidacy from many pundits on the right and in the media, Trump nonetheless got about the same percentage of Republican voters (88–90 percent) as did McCain in 2008 and Romney in 2012, who both were handily defeated in the Electoral College. Here are some of reasons voters knew what they were getting with Trump and yet nevertheless assumed he was preferable to a Clinton presidency. 1) Was Trump

The NFL Players’ Association (NFLPA) on Wednesday criticized the league for its new national anthem policy. In a statement, the union said it would review the new policy and “challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.” The union accused the league of contradicting its previous statements, and of ignoring players’ wishes in developing the new policy, which instructs that all team and league personnel should stand for the national anthem. “The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this new ‘policy,’” the union said in a statement. “NFL players have

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.— Defense Secretary Jim Mattis delivered a rousing commencement speech Wednesday to a group of 984 Air Force Academy graduates in Colorado, telling them to "hold the line" in protecting the U.S. Mattis looked out over the crowd of white cadet caps in the academy’s football stadium and told the soon-to-be officers that they will soon be taking the lead in a long history of service that dates back to the Doolittle Raiders and Tuskegee airmen of World War II. “Growing up as witnesses to the longest stretch of combat in our nation’s history, every single one of you

NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell said she thinks American diplomacy is better on TV than in real life. On Monday, Mitchell interviewed actor Erich Bergen, co-star of the CBS “Madam Secretary” in which Tea Leoni plays CIA-analyst-turned-Secretary-of-State Elizabeth McCord. Mitchell praised the show for its portrayal of what she thinks diplomacy should look like rather what it has been since President Trump took office. “As we’ve had a downturn at the State Department, at least it’s one place we can watch diplomacy in action, at least once a week on Sunday night,” Mitchell said.

ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter is reporting that the NFL will allow players to remain in the locker room during the anthem. However, if they come out and protest the flag or anthem, their teams will get fined. Though the new policy is not expected to become official until later Wednesday afternoon, Schefter tweeted the reported details: (Snip) On Tuesday, it was reported that the league would assess 15-yard penalties to teams whose players protested on the sidelines. That idea, though, was resoundingly mocked on Twitter. As suggested by Breitbart Sports, the NFL may have released the story about penalizing

Liberal news media used to treat agencies like the FBI and CIA that guarded government secrets with deep skepticism. Think The New York Times and the Pentagon Papers, or The Washington Post and Watergate. That was then. Now the same crowd is bending over backward to treat those agencies as the bulwarks of our democracy, their every move above suspicion. And painting President Trump, who’s only asking for transparency on the FBI’s investigation of his campaign, as a threat to the Republic and its democratic institutions. Fact is, lots of questions need answering — but the FBI and the Justice Department remain close

Thankfully, the plan didn´t work. A STEM professor at the University of Akron in Ohio was trying to boost his students´ grades - just because those students are women. On Monday, the professor, Liping Liu, sent an email to students letting them know that three groups of students may see their grades raised a "level or two," according to a screenshot of the email that was posted on Reddit. The screenshot has since been removed because it contained recipients’ email addresses, however, a redacted copy of it was provided by a student to Campus Reform.

President Donald Trump met his South Korean counterpart in the White House on Tuesday, publicly acknowledged his planned summit with Kim Jong Un may never take place, and called out China’s ruler for sabotaging the denuclearization process. It was about time the American leader recognized his North Korea policy was hitting roadblocks. (Snip) Xi obviously has been up to no good. In addition to openly violating U.N. sanctions in recent months, Xi has undoubtedly been schooling Kim in the art of defiance of the international community, especially the United States.

John Kiriakou said he had "no idea" he was under investigation in 2007 for sharing details of terrorists´ interrogations to journalists. Kiriakou said his story should be relevant to President Donald Trump, who is dealing with the same officials in his Russia probe as Kiriakou did. "In 2007, the Bush administration investigated me and determined I hadn´t committed a crime," he said. However, Kiriakou said that once President Obama took power

The FBI has repeatedly provided grossly inflated statistics to Congress and the public about the extent of problems posed by encrypted cellphones, claiming investigators were locked out of nearly 7,800 devices connected to crimes last year when the correct number was much smaller, probably between 1,000 and 2,000, The Washington Post has learned. Over a period of seven months, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray cited the inflated figure as the most compelling evidence for the need to address what the FBI calls “Going Dark” — the spread of encrypted software that can block investigators’ access to digital data even with a

Lawyers for President Donald Trump are increasingly skeptical of letting him give an interview with prosecutors running the Russia investigation, but are thinking through how to prepare him for the possible high-stakes session nonetheless. Rudy Giuliani, one of the president’s outside lawyers, said in an interview Tuesday that he is currently opposed to letting Mr. Trump field questions from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Noting the perils of talking to prosecutors, Mr. Giuliani said that were the president to testify he could “talk himself into becoming a target.” Other people close to Mr. Trump’s legal team have voiced a similar view, worried that
