James Comey´s father recently defended his son, saying he was never ´crazy´ about President Donald Trump and he´s ´convinced that he´s nuts´. Since the firing of former FBI Director, Comey, the president has called him a ´grandstander´ and a ´showboat´, two things that Comey´s father and people from his hometown of Allendale, New Jersey, highly disagree with. ´I never was crazy about Trump,´ J. Brien Comey, 86, a Republican and a former borough councilman, told NorthJersey.com. ´I´m convinced that he´s nuts. I thought he belonged in an institution. He was crazy before he became president. Now he´s really crazy.´ Comey´s father questioned the president´s
Your Honor: If Big James Comey Sr. is going to testify to the extreme bias of Donald Trump by Little Jimmy Comey Jr, could you please ask him to speak up so the whole world knows of Jr´s prejudice against the defendant?
Trump may be unconventional to say he least but he´s far from nuts.He´s done a great job raising his kids who are far more successful in their own right than any liberal trust fund brat.I hope he does fill football stadiums to fund raise to kick rinos from the House and Senate.
Dad thinks he´s helping his little boy, but all he is doing is baking in his kid´s new name -- "Nut Job" -- which will now wind up some day being carved into Jim Comey´s tombstone. Saul Alinsky had the best solution to the way to deal with a nut job like our former FBI director Nut Job: Ridicukle -- unremitting, bombastic and joyful ridicule, the crueler the better.
Who is the nut job here? Clearly in the last year James Comey has done very strange things that no other FBI Director has done, like getting in front of ongoing FBI investigations, by inserting himself in politics making public statements during the run up to the election, and as one of his friends just told the media when going to the White House he wore a blue suit so that he could hide behind a curtain so that President Trump would not notice him. What previous FBI Director has ever done anything like that? That just makes you wonder.
Let´s be real - Comey was chosen as Director because he was a dedicated follower of Obama - as was everyone appointed during his regime. Comey was a true believer - a white Eric Holder. He set the table for his own downfall. Regardless of Comeys´ behavior or political ideology, Trump can fire any appointed govt employee without cause. Comey was smart enough to know his days were numbered. Trump wants his own guy in there.
This is just more proof that every one Barack touched seems to have lost their sense of protecting their country from radical destruction of self government and civil rights called liberty. It is also clear he in turn was a tool of pure evil now scrambling to bring down the Republic. Once again the specter of empire and loss of freedom brings lies and greed from the pits or swamp-- if pits is too harsh for the self proclaimed elite and superior to accept. These fool never learn that their attempts can only bring down everyone including them and history repeats and repeats. Comey is/was a tool and such either goes down via opposition or is sacrificed to the darkness. Can a peoples just once stop that swirling decline? The millions who voted for the end of this fall can determine the result if they are tough enough.Hopefully without a blood bath.
A tenth elderly patient has died after being kept inside a nursing home that turned into a sweatbox when Hurricane Irma knocked out its air conditioning for three days. Police in Florida confirmed 94-year-old Martha Murray died on Wednesday and said her death was related to the problems at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills following Irma.

Incredible colourised photos have been unearthed showing international volunteers in the Spanish Civil War. The images show members of the famous International Brigade, which counted literary stars such as George Orwell, Ernest Hemmingway and Laurie Lee as members, as well as the Red Cross and local Spanish Republican militia. They are all the work of Doug Banks, who painstakingly brought the images up to date. They show soldiers enjoying a spot of lunch in front of their aircraft and members of the Red Cross on a rescue mission after the detonation of a bomb. ´The images are mainly of American volunteers enlisted into
Yes, both leaders spoke well at Tuesday’s annual General Assembly, specifically as to the “great perils” from rogue regimes. For President Trump that meant both North Korea and Iran. For Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Iran was mostly on his mind. Trump offered Kim Jong-un an offer he’d better not refuse – behave or there’ll be “no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” Netanyahu did not go quite that far, but he mentioned the consequences if Iran keeps threatening Israel, as it does every day. Israel’s prime minister delivered this "simple messages" for Iranian dictator Khameini. "The light of Israel will
Istanbul´s biggest airport was forced to close after a luxury private plan crashed into the main runway and burst into flames. The jet was trying to leave Ataturk Airport on its way to Cyprus when it reportedly fell from the sky. The plane crashed into the ground and burst into flames prompting firefighters to flood to the scene to extinguish the blaze. Initial reports suggested the plane´s failure alarm triggered having taken off from the runway. Seconds later, the tire exploded during the emergency landing attempt, which is thought to have caused the fire. Ataturk airport reopened to traffic after the private jet
Donald Trump found a light moment in the midst of Thursday´s stern news that the United States will be using harsh new sanctions as a weapon against North Korea. During a meeting in New York City, South Korean President Moon Jae-In blasted his communist neighbors for its tests of nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles. ´North Korea has continued to make provocations, and this is extremely deplorable,´ Moon said. ´And this has angered both me and our people. But the United States has responded firmly and in a very good way.´ Trump seized on the word ´Deplorable,´ a zinger that former election foe Hillary
President Donald Trump confirmed Thursday that he plans to visit Puerto Rico, the U.S. territory that´s beginning a long process of recovery after Hurricane Maria struck this week. ´Yes, I will,´ he said in response to a question about whether a trip there is in his future. ´I´ll be going.´ Trump was speaking during a photo-op at the United Nations, before a bilateral meeting with Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told DailyMail.com that there is ´no set timetable´ yet for a presidential visit to Puerto Rico. ´We want to be respectful of the recovery efforts and not disrupt
Of those 70 soldiers, 25 are engineers who will evaluate the damage and provide assessments and assistance in the disaster zone. As the earthquake devastated infrastructure, engineers are needed on the ground to survey buildings in the affected area, and to assess whether or not they remain safe to use. The delegation also includes search and rescue and other military personnel. The delegation, led by Col. (res.) Dudi Mizrahi of the Home Front Command’s Search and Rescue unit, will land in Mexico in approximately 18 hours. Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, an IDF spokesperson, said of the aid mission, “The IDF and the State of Israel
President Donald Trump says the U.S. is about to unleash more punishing actions on Pyongyang. Trump made the announcement Thursday as he sat down for string meetings at the United Nations. ´We will be putting more sanctions on North Korea,´ he said. Fox News reported that ´banking-related´ sanctions would be announced Thursday afternoon. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has a press briefing scheduled for 3:00 p.m. at the United Nations. The United States has acknowledged that it´s at the end of its rope when it comes to slapping international sanctions on Kim Jong-un´s rogue regime. Any further punishing actions will have to come from
Donald Trump appeared to get on famously with other world leaders as he worked the room at a UN General Assembly luncheon on Tuesday. Photos show the president cheerfully chatting with Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan, while South Korea´s Moon Jae-In listens in. Afterwards, Trump triumphantly tweeted: ´A great and important day at the United Nations. ´Met with leaders of many nations who agree with much (or all) of what I stated in my speech!´ Trump was initially sat between Guterres and Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe. Photos show him leaning in to look at something - likely a phone
President Donald Trump told world leaders the U.S. would no longer be ´taken advantage of´ as he blasted trade deals that he says caused millions of jobs to vanish. In a speech where he also called for collective action against ´Rocket man´ Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Trump saluted the United States for having prevailed in World War II only to build ´institutions such as this one to defend the sovereignty, security, and prosperity for all.´ But the president wasn't so sanguine about the international trade regime also put in place after the second world war. He blasted 'mammoth, multinational trade deals' and 'unaccountable international tribunals'
MEXICO CITY — A powerful earthquake struck Mexico on Tuesday afternoon, toppling buildings with people still inside, rattling the capital and sending people flooding into the streets for the second time in just two weeks. The earthquake occurred shortly after 1 p.m. local time about 100 miles from Mexico City. It registered a preliminary magnitude of 7.1, causing heavy and prolonged shaking in the capital. During the quake, some facades and entire buildings in Mexico City fell, crushing cars and trapping some people inside. The number of dead and injured is unclear. Tuesday’s earthquake struck on the 32nd anniversary
Israel on Monday inaugurated with its US ally a joint missile defense base on Israeli soil, the first ever, a senior Israeli air force officer said. The new facility, at an undisclosed location in southern Israel, was announced as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was due to meet US President Donald Trump in New York on the fringes of the UN General Assembly. "We inaugurated, with our partners from the United States Army, an American base, for the first time in Israel," Brigadier General Tzvika Heimowitz, head of Israeli missile defenses, told journalists. "An American flag is flying permanently over a US army
Hillary Clinton compared herself to Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere on Tuesday, saying that she is “Paula Revere” sounding the alarm on Russian active measures during the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) In her interview, Clinton suggested that she has led the push to call out the Russian government and Russian president Vladimir Putin about their involvement in the U.S. election. “I am saying as clearly as I can — I feel like I’m a bit of a, you know, Paula Revere — I’m trying to sound the alarm about this,” Clinton said to a smattering of laughter and applause. Clinton’s
If you had plans for the weekend, a Christian numerologist says you won’t get to them because the world is about to end. David Meade, a self-proclaimed “researcher,” is predicting that a series of apocalyptic events will begin on Sept. 23 and, “a major part of the world will not be the same.” According to Meade, the mysterious rogue planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is on a collision course with Earth, which will bring world-ending tsunamis and earthquakes. The numerologist claims the dates of recent events like the Great American Solar Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey’s flooding of Texas were all marked in the Bible.
Hillary Clinton´s "What Happened" had a big debut. Clinton´s book about her stunning loss in 2016 to Donald Trump sold more than 300,000 copies in the combined formats of hardcover, e-book and audio, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book´s hardcover sales of 168,000 was the highest opening for any nonfiction release in five years, according to NPD BookScan, which tracks around 85 percent of retail print sales. Mark Owen´s "No Easy Day," a 2012 memoir about the killing of Osama bin Laden, sold more than 250,000 copies in its first week. Sales for "What Happened"
A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents. In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group
ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the
If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by
In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined
Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes
A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are
U2 frontman Bono unloaded on President Donald Trump in a Rolling Stone interview published Wednesday, revealing that his Irish rock band’s new album will take on the “bully on the bully pulpit” because “silence is not an option.” In January, U2 founding guitarist The Edge revealed that “Songs of Experience,” the band’s follow-up to its platinum-selling 2014 album “Songs of Innocence,” was delayed because of Trump’s election. Now Bono says “there’s a couple of reasons why we delayed Songs of Experience. One personal, one political.” “The world around us was certainly changing out of all recognition, we nearly lost the
Lawrence O’Donnell had a really bad night on August 29, 2017.We draw that conclusion based on the above clip obtained by Mediaite, showing behind the scenes footage of a furious O’Donnell absolutely going bananas in what appear to be breaks in his show.The video, which lasts a full eight minutes, is a collection of clips from one evening (given O’Donnell’s consistent outfit) and show the MSNBC anchor fuming about earpiece malfunctions, blasting off obscenities and screaming at his staff. We were able to link it back to the August 29 show. After introducing a clip about President Donald Trump, O’Donnell pauses,
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper suggested on Wednesday that "it´s possible" that President Trump´s voice was picked up in a wiretap as he spoke with his former campaign manager Paul Manafort. "It´s certainly conceivable," Clapper said on CNN. When asked by host Don Lemon if it was likely, Clapper said he couldn´t say, but again asserted that there is a chance. "I wouldn´t want to go there, but I will say it´s possible," Clapper said. (Video) A CNN report earlier in the week said that Manafort had been wiretapped under a FISA warrant over suspicions that Manafort had encouraged some
