The scandal involving former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russia could become a new Watergate. That’s what veteran newsman Dan Rather wrote in a viral Facebook post Tuesday. “On a 10 scale of armageddon for our form of government, I would put Watergate at a 9. This Russia scandal is currently somewhere around a 5 or 6, in my opinion, but it is cascading in intensity seemingly by the hour,” Rather writes. “When we look back at Watergate, we remember the end of the Nixon Presidency. It came with an avalanche, but for most of the time my fellow reporters
I blame the Viet Cong for Dan Rather existing today. When Dan Rather was an embedded reporter in Vietnam with AK47 bullets whizzing around him a good ´Charlie´ sniper could have helped us all out and put us out of our misery from this miserable snail darter. Joey Buttafuoco Rather has a nice ring to it.
Until the NY Times reveals it´s source in the American intelligence community, the story is BS. The tape is classified information. If the NYTimes can know what´s in the tape, why can´t all Americans.
Call your Congressional people today to tell them this story is BS, tell them to release the tape. Just because the NY Times (Democrat owned and operated) decides to write an unsubstantiated story doesn´t mean the story is true. We all know they make up news. In my opinion, it´s total baloney.
Gunga Dan has always been, as goes the punch line in that old joke about the door-to-door brush salesman, Col. Sanders, and the razor manufacturer, Fuller Chicken Schick. Cronkite managed to make it to retirement and the marble row less professionally damaged than his successor in the CBS chief news reader´s chair. Walter dropped his mask when he told the Playboy interviewer that news "is what I say it is," but Lucy Ramirez´s ghost never fell out of his closet, either.
Rather, in the outer Siberia of the cable lineup these days, is huffing and puffing for attention. If he had any shame this absurd man would apologize for ever having been born, bow his head, and tiptoe away in abject shame, never to speak again, like Meher Baba. He´s exposed himself, been found out, doesn´t look good naked, but doesn´t care what you will say when you get home. Flocks of rotten eggs should fly and perch in layers on his face.
I guess he got tired of hanging out with Brian Williams. Old Dan just can´t get over how seriously he screwed up. Danny, you had it all dude. Network anchor, Mr. Big Man, rolling in dough and now you are homeless, begging for attention. All because you just had to jump in front of the progressive hate line and claim only you had the ´truth´ about W. What a sad buffoon you are.
Watergate was about a 2. The MSM built it up to the Crime of the Century. The clintons had a scandal almost every week that was worse, and soetoro perhaps outdid them with all his crimes. Selling guns to mexican drug gangs? Ring a bell, dan? Rape of multiple women? Hello? Selling out the country to the Muslim Brotherhood? Faking documents to influence a Presidential election... that´s a scandal.
U.S. Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement unions are cheering President Trump´s plan to hire 15,000 new agents, claiming that he has boosted sagging morale by promising to finally help the outnumbered immigration officers — and let them do their jobs. "During my career at ICE I have never had the opportunity to commend a sitting U.S. president, or DHS secretary, but I´m doing so today. Amidst all the hammering from the media, and protests from special interest groups, President Trump and Secretary (John) Kelly haven´t wavered, but instead continued steadfast in their support of the rule of law
We´ve seen two more "Known Wolf" terror attacks in the West, and yet Western government authorities seem unwilling to acknowledge, let alone begin to address, the "Known Wolf" terror problem. I first identified the "Known Wolf" terror trend and coined the term in October 2014 here at PJ Media, noting that many, possibly most, Islamic terrorists who actually committed terrorism in the West were already known to Western law enforcement, national security agencies, and intelligence services. Yet sufficient action was not taken to prevent them from conducting terror attacks: (Tweet) Since then, I´ve chronicled (in nearly two dozen articles) the
Freedom Watch notifies congress of a “Deep State” intelligence community whistle blower, Dennis Montgomery, with hundreds of millions of documents showing CIA and FBI and Intelligence Committees were spying on, and conducting surveillance on, American citizens for political purposes. Mr. Montgomery is trying to use a legal “whistle-blower” process and not follow the same approach as Edward Snowden. (Photos/Copy of letter)
President Trump on Thursday reacted to the news that a Utah man was killed in Wednesday´s terrorist attack outside Parliament, saying: "A great American, Kurt Cochran, was killed in the London terror attack." "My prayers and condolences are with his family and friends," Trump tweeted. (Tweet) Cochran and his wife Melissa — who was injured in the attack — were in Europe to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, according to a family statement issued by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "Our family is heartbroken to learn of the death of our brother- and son-in-law, Kurt W. Cochran,
British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,
The Washington Post´s Bob Woodward warned on Wednesday that there are people from the Obama administration who could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said earlier that he had briefed Trump on new information, unrelated to an investigation into Russian activities, that suggested that several members of Trump´s transition team and perhaps Trump himself had their identities "unmasked" after their communications were intercepted by U.S. intelligence officials. The revelation is notable because identities of Americans are generally supposed to remain
Former Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon had some tough words for Democrats tonight over a report that some in the Senate are considering a deal to confirm Neil Gorsuch. According to Politico, even though there are Democrats standing firm against Gorsuch because of how Merrick Garland was treated, there are some attempting to get concessions as part of a deal: The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a commitment from Republicans not to kill the filibuster for a subsequent vacancy during President Donald Trump’s
Previously we discussed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson having a conflict in schedules with a Brussels NATO meeting. Both Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Chinese President Xi Jinping are visiting President Trump and Secretary Tillerson in the first week of April. The Brussels NATO meeting was scheduled for April 5th and 6th. The U.S. leftist media tried to make a controversy over the scheduling conflict. However, now NATO has agreed to change their meeting date. (Photo) WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of NATO says he is certain a semiannual meeting of the alliance’s foreign ministers can be rescheduled so
Disgraced anchor Brian Williams, who has a history of not telling the truth, on Wednesday offered a skeptical take on the claim by a Republican Congressman that Donald Trump´s aides were surveilled during the presidential transition. Regarding the assertions made by Representative Devin Nunes, Williams explained in a doubting tone: “[Nunes] says he is now in receipt of information. It´s intelligence information that he found alarming enough to go down to the White House and brief the President. [This is] not traditionally the role of the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.” Williams, who falsely said he was shot down
The economic boycott of North Carolina over the state’s controversial “bathroom law” that requires men and women to use their respective bathrooms in public facilities is a failure. As reported by Bradford and Valerie Richardson in the Washington Times: Tourism has thrived: Hotel occupancy, room rates and demand for rooms set records in 2016, according to the year-end hotel lodging report issued last week by VisitNC, part of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina. Meanwhile, North Carolina ranked fourth in the nation for attracting and expanding businesses with the arrival of 289 major projects, and seventh in projects per
London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has already been controversial for his ‘openness’ towards Islamic immigrants with no plans what so ever to help assimilate them to Western culture. Well, with today’s attacks that left at least four dead and many injured, we are reminded of Sadiq Khan’s chilling remarks that terrorism is ‘part & parcel’ of living in a large city. Via DailyMail: The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has said that living with terror attacks – like the one that hit New York at the weekend – is ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’. Mr Khan told
Horrifying footage shows the moment a a woman plunged into the River Thames as a car ploughs onto the pavement in a terror attack in the heart of London. Incredibly she was rescued alive from the river following the atrocity, which saw three members of the public killed on the bridge before the driver stabbed a police officer. The unarmed officer who died has been named by Scotland Yard as 48-year-old father Keith Palmer. The attacker was shot dead by officers outside the Houses of Parliament. (Video/Photo) It is not known whether the woman fell or jumped, but initial reports from
Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why? Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. (snip) It´s closing hundreds of stores. Others are in shambles, with leaking ceilings and broken escalators. In some, employees hang bedsheets to shield shoppers from sections that stand empty. Before Sears and Kmart, Lampert had no experience in retail. The big plan he hoped would transform Sears
Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security. The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military
Chelsea Clinton and a select group of women will be honored next month in New York as Variety’s Lifetime Impact Honorees for humanitarian work. Variety magazine and the Lifetime television network will pay tribute on April 21 to Mrs. Clinton and five other women for their philanthropic endeavors. The 37-year-old will attend the Power of Women: New York luncheon with fellow honorees Jessica Chastain, Gayle King, Blake Lively, Audra McDonald, and Shari Redstone. “At the heart of New York City is a vibrant community of strong women in entertainment, media, and politics whose commitment to philanthropy is inspirational,” said Michelle Sobrino Stearns,
Armed Police have opened fire and shot an intruder inside the grounds of the Houses of Parliament amid reports a car drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. Several shots were fired at around 2.35pm moments after a loud bang was heard near the grounds of Parliament. Three bodies were visible on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down. Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car. Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have been bundled into a car by a plain-clothes police
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice. The page lists Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Conway as his granddaughter and describes DiNatale as “a reputed Bruno-Scarfo
The family of Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee who was murdered last July in Washington, D.C., has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money for investigating the unsolved case. Aaron Rich, the brother of the victim, created the GoFundMe page on Sunday to draw attention to the unsolved crime that took place July 10 in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest D.C. and raise $200,000. "One thing that no one tells you, and something we weren´t prepared to hear when we lost Seth, is that if a case isn´t solved immediately, it could take months or years before
Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. on Tuesday said he and his estranged wife Sandi Jackson are $1.8 million in debt thanks to legal bills from their federal criminal prosecution and mounting fees from an acrimonious divorce playing out in courtrooms in two cities. Jackson Jr. talked to reporters during an at-times rambling question-and-answer session following a brief hearing in his divorce case at the Daley Center, opining on the state of Washington politics and the best way to settle the couple’s bills. Neither Jackson nor his wife, former alderman Sandi Jackson, has worked since their release from prison after serving sentences
A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a
As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch about what it would take to impeach President Trump. (Snip) "In case President Trump is watching, which he may very well be, one you did a good job picking Judge Gorsuch," Graham said to laughs, "and number two—here´s the bad part—if you start waterboarding people, you may get impeached. Is that a fair summary?" "Senator, the impeachment power belongs to this body," Gorsuch answered.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a delay of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation on Tuesday given the ongoing FBI investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. “You can bet, if the shoe were on the other foot and a Democratic president was under investigation by the FBI, the Republicans would be howling at the moon about filling a Supreme Court seat in such circumstances,” Schumer said on the floor. Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move
Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the
