The Washington D.C. nomenklatura advanced forward last week with its slow-moving coup d’état against America’s constitutionally elected President. But even after the federal bureaucracy’s further progress toward undoing the 2016 election, I confess to a faint hope that Special Counsel Robert Swan Mueller III -- supposed embodiment of upper class, non-partisan, lawyerly virtue -- might actually conduct a fair, focused and swift inquiry into the matter assigned him. In the end, though, the sensible old lawyer’s voice in my head whispers that this hope is more pipe dream than prediction of events.
Seems like everything in Washington DC is turning into a reality show, the Real Politicians of Washington DC, lot of nonsense and self importance. Washington does not work for the people of the Country but a game played by a few to further their own interest and pocketbook, throw in a few parties complete with champagne and caviar, not much difference from Hollywood. While the people in the middle have to pay for their tomfoolery.
according to washingtonian profile in 2008, mueller was homicide investigator on the georgetown starbucks murders. to understand that google some set of these terms: mary mahoney white house intern lewinsky cooper. context: mueller always wanted to be fbi chief but lost his rung on the ladder to a political appointee at beginning of clinton administration. he went to work at Hale and Dorr. In about 1995 he took a 75% pay cut to work for Eric Holder in the DC Attorney office. After a few years of that, including Georgetown Starbucks case, and he got the FBI Chief job in 2001 from Bush, with bipartisan support. He may be anti wiretapping, but he is no doubt anti murder also and washingtonians felt that the actual murderer in this case eluded consequences while the deed was pinned on a poor black man.
I;m with #1. The leftists are gonna howl no matter what DJT does or doesn´t do, so go ahead and boot these obstructionists. This is an ideal situation -- everything to gain (getting focused on what he was elected to do), and not a damm thing to lose.
Think of the thousands of lives that would have been saved on 9-11, in Afghanistan and Iraq if GW Bush had the moxie to fire Mueller at the same time in his 1st term that President Trump fired Comey. The FBI might have reverted back from political smears to investigation in time to arrest the 20 hijackers. Think about the damage Mueller continues to do. To maintain the DC grip on the rest of us?
According to 27 highly placed but unnamed sources, a large number of artistic cretins, formerly known as editors within the NY Times and Washington Post, have been secretly engaged in an on-going, after hours Draw Mohamed contest, engaging in ghastly graphic humor at the prophet´s expense. When reminded of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in France, one of the contest´s front runners, representing the WaPo, was quoted as saying, "Let them come and we´ll do a reverse Hebdo on the ignorant savages. Our Metrosexual staff, in addition to their superior comedic talents, have been highly trained in the killing arts and are backed by our legions of harry Harpies, who have decades of combat experience in ridding the world of those carrying the scientifically proven-to-be-faulty XY chromosomes, including that ultimate expression of phenotype following tainted genotype in the person of DJT,a known XY carrier and denier of it´s otherwise universally accepted inherent evil." Special Counsel of the Universe Robert Mueller was unavailable for comment but one of his top-shelf investigators, on loan from the prestigious Down with American Greatness Movement, an Obama-preferred and highly enlightened 503(C), commented off-the-record, "Hey, we´re just following Mendel´s Law wherever the evidence takes us."
Trump should give Mueller 30 days to make an announcement on MSNBC stating what he has to justify further investigation. It will be all innuendo. Trump then denounces it as all innuendo, fires Mueller, and gets back to work.
FTA:"Now that Mr. Mueller has been improvidently appointed, he has a slender chance to save his own reputation for professional integrity, and the nation from further political disintegration -- by sticking to his assignment and rapidly and fairly concluding his work.
We will soon learn whether he has any interest in such an approach to his duties."
I pray that Mueller is a nearly extinct species, an honest lawyer.
Those who control the narrative, control the truth. Following Charlottesville, all must understand the broader context of current events -- the conservative movement (not to be confused with media created Alt-Right or White Nationalists) desires the restoration of America´s founding principles, as documented in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. (snip)There is a counter movement that seeks America´s destruction, and the imposition of a new covenant, predicated on the wisdom of man, or more particularly, a select group of men, who seek to manage the affairs of all man. These two contradictory principles are reflected as liberty or
Solar energy is not always a fraud. If you live off the electric grid, and you have a reasonable amount of sunshine, solar power, backed up by batteries, can be a good option for getting a modest amount of electricity. It will not be cheap electricity. (snip)the true value of rooftop solar electricity is the cost of fuel consumption avoided when the solar is operating. The result is that the utility is often effectively forced to pay retail rates, typically about 13 cents per KWh, for electricity whose true value is about 3 cents per KWh. The owner of the
The signs are all around us that the subversion and worse is afoot among those who feel that the federal government belongs to them, not to the voters of the Republic. You might even say that think of it as “our thing.” Right out in plain sight, we were warned last week in the words of someone who worked for Robert Mueller when he was head of the FBI. It was on CNN, so few people saw it, and as CNN habitués, they may not have considered it disturbing. Nonetheless, host Jake Tapper was sufficiently alarmed to clarify whether this was
We’re all so used to double standards from the media that we barely notice them. But right now, the unfairness is so acute that we must take a step back and remember something hideous that happened only this year. President Trump is being roundly criticized by most of the media for failing to criticize one side over the other in the Charlottesville riots, even before the exact sequence of events is understood, such as who initiated the violence. The verdict in this case must precede the evidence. So let’s take a short trip down memory lane and recall how the media
My colleague Rick Moran is highly critical of President Trump for equally condemning those who came to Charlottesville, VA seeking violence on behalf of their version of justice in racial issues: While the president condemned the violence and hate, he softened his criticism by blaming "all sides" for the violence. This may have been technically accurate. (snip)I am sorry, but maintaining that a president of the United States must shape his actions according to what the media and his critics (but I repeat myself) might say is an abject surrender. This is the standard operating procedure of Republicans pre-Trump, and
Jeffrey Lord, a prominent political analyst on CNN for the past two years, known for his passionate defense of Donald J. Trump, during the campaign and now as president, was fired on Thursday, August 10 after he used the words “Sieg Heil!” in a tweet. On Thursday morning, Lord was engaged in a strident Twitter exchange with Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters, the far left group that targets conservative media programs, hosts, and analysts. Lord had written several articles in American Spectator (published August 9 and August 10) critical of Media Matters, dubbing them Media Matters Fascists (MMF)
There has been enthusiastic collusion by the leadership of the Democratic Party with the Russian disinformation campaign to destroy President Donald Trump. (snip)There is the infamous case of Ted Kennedy approaching the Kremlin to help Democrats defeat Reagan, but never before has collusion with our enemies by a non-communist party been sustained and widespread. What has changed? We are reaping the results of a multi-decade effort by the communist and socialist left. Leftists have finally dominated and transformed the Democratic Party – into something vicious and dangerous to our republic.
A dog whistle of sorts has been blown, audible to Democrat pros, alerting them to the problem Debbie Wasserman Schultz has become for the political family. Coming from Politico, the Democrat insiders’ gazette, it will heard by all. In a long, scrupulously fair, even slightly sympathetic, article (all the worse for DWS) on the “blowback” she is experiencing for numerous failures culminating in IT gate, we learn that she’s become bad for business. Marc Caputo writes: “We wish she would go away and stop being so public by doubling down on negative stories,” Nikki Barnes, a progressive DNC member from Florida, who
I am almost beginning to feel sorry for MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle, who were almost certainly instructed through their ear pieces to go on the attack with Presidential advisor Sebastian Gorka, PhD. It’s bad enough having to peddle stale old leftist talking points about avoiding the expression “radical Islamic terror,” but attempting to outsmart the guest when the hosts are roughly 50 IQ points below him is, well, a kamikaze mission.

The Smart Set agrees that once again President Trump has said something ridiculous, amateurish, and downright embarrassing. His warning to North Korea, using rhetoric that resembles the hyperbole that regime long has favored, is something they would never do (and just look at how successful they have been preventing North Korea from getting nukes.) But watch as the president makes his point twice, very deliberately using the exact words “fire and fury” that he had committed to memory (snip) Just for a moment and just for fun, let’s see if there might be any logic to trying a different approach from
If you are liberal and a faithful reader of The New York Times, you think that the Watergate campaign to take out President Nixon was America at its best. Imagine! A president covering up the criminal misdeeds of his underlings! But the liberal knows that the Republican witch hunt of President Clinton was America at its worst. Here was a president that eliminated the deficit and produced the best economy in 50 years. And Republicans wanted to make it all about a blue dress. Speaking as your average racist sexist homophobe, I’d say that the salient feature of both cooked-up scandals, no
A system of sorts has been perfected to destroy the most effective conservative spokesmen on the Fox News Channel, and it operated with stunning efficiency over the last few days. A marginal writer with a documented background as a high level political operative and fundraiser in left wing Democrat politics published an unsourced article at a far left Web site, HuffPost (formerly the Huffington Post). The article claimed that multiple anonymous sources supposedly confirmed to the writer that “several years ago” prominent Fox News channel (FNC) host and anchor Eric Bolling – who happens to be a strong supporter of
BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — White House officials, under siege over President Trump’s reluctance to condemn white supremacists for the weekend’s bloody rallies in Charlottesville, Va., tried to clarify his comments on Sunday, as critics in both parties intensified demands that he adopt a stronger, more unifying message. A statement on Sunday — issued more than 36 hours after the protests began — condemned “white supremacists” for the violence that led to one death. It came in an email sent to reporters in the president’s traveling press pool, and was attributed to an unnamed representative. It was not attributed directly to Mr.
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta unleashed a series of tweets throughout the day on Saturday blaming President Trump for the white supremacists rally and subsequently deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. “These are the consequences of sanitizing white supremacists who seek to be rebranded as part of American ‘right.’ They are peddling hatred,” Acosta complained in his first tweet. Acosta made no attempt to look at his own employer or the rest of the news media in the mirror for the amount of free publicity they’ve given neo-Nazis over the last few years, but that would require a level-headed kind
FOX News reporter Doug McKelway attended the violent protests Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia. McKelway told FOX News viewers the police pulled out of Lee Park after the violence started. The police told him, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.” (Photo) This was after violent Antifa terrorists launched an attack on the white supremacists. Doug McKelway: We are now beginning to hear criticism bubble up on all sides of this event about the initial slow response by the police. When I got out of my car yesterday in Charlottesville about 10:30 in the morning you knew this was a bad scene and
An Ohio man is accused of driving a car into a crowd of people protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring 19 others, police said late Saturday. James Alex Fields Jr., 20, was booked into the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail on one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of failing to stop at an accident that resulted in a death. On Saturday night, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the opening of a federal civil rights investigation into
Saturday was marked by bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia after an apparent white nationalist plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters in a blatant attack. And on the morning after, NBC’s Sunday Today put President Trump in their sights as they unloaded on him while appearing to pin the blame for the attack on him. At one point even claiming he “enjoys” the support he gets from the bigots who were rallying in Virginia. “President Trump condemned the violence there on Saturday but he did not specifically speak to the white nationalism that was on display,” complained Anchor Willie Geist as he was
Worst. President. Ever. Barack Obama executed the weakest economic growth in US history, the worst recovery since World War II, a genocide of Christians and minorities in the Middle East, and a disastrous foreign policy. The Democrat Party suffered historic losses under Barack Obama. (Chart) Democrats lost 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts during the Obama years including senators, representatives, governorships and the White House. (Tweet) But have faith Democrats– Barack is coming back to help rebuild the Democrat Party. The Hill reported: Former President Barack Obama will re-emerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to
A day after violence broke out between counter-protesters and white nationalists in his city, Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer on Sunday said President Trump deserves at least some of the blame. “Look at the campaign he ran,” Mr. Signer told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Look at the intentional courting, on one hand, of all these white supremacists, white nationalists … and look on the other hand at the repeated failure to step up, condemn, denounce, silence, put to bed all of these different efforts, just like we saw yesterday. This isn’t hard.” Mr. Trump has come under bipartisan fire for failing to explicitly condemn white
President Donald Trump allegedly suspects his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, is behind some White House leaks about fellow staffers, according to a new report. Sources reportedly told Axios that West Wing staff believe Bannon was behind leaks about National Security Adviser HR McMaster and that Bannon´s job could be in jeopardy. Trump has been ´irritated´ with Bannon following a series of Breitbart reports targeting McMaster, according to the report.. Bannon was formerly the executive chairman of Breitbart.
Rep. Maxine Waters excoriated President Trump on social media Sunday for his response to the violence in Charlottesville, Va., saying the White House is now the "White Supremacists´ House." "Trump has made it clear - w/ Bannon & Gorka in the WH, & the Klan in the streets, it is now the White Supremacists´ House. #Charlottesviille," Waters wrote on Twitter, referring to White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and deputy assistant to the president Sebastian Gorka. The California Democrat added, "Trump refuses to condemn white supremacists & terrorists who showed up in Charlottesville. Is he sending a signal? Everyone must
HAMPTON, Iowa — It was quitting time. Edith Rivera took one last lunch order, dropped off a basket of tortilla chips and set off from work, heading out to the farm roads where other immigrants feared to drive. Like them, Ms. Rivera, 33, had no legal status in the country where she had lived for 18 years. She had no driver’s license, apart from the long-expired North Carolina identification she held safe, like a talisman, in her wallet. But as she skimmed past the northern Iowa cornfields on her way to her son Steven’s seventh-grade track meet, she did not
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called on the Department of Justice to investigate a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. that turned violent and left three dead and dozens injured. "The Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists are repulsive and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak out against the lies, bigotry, ant-semitism, and hatred that they propagate," Cruz said in a statement. Having watched the horrifying video of the car deliberately crashing into a crowd of protesters, I urge the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism," he
Dear John: You recently criticized the FBI for its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. I am a retired FBI agent and extremely proud of my career and service. I feel compelled to write. Former FBI Director James Comey’s statements, testimony and behavior are truly abhorrent. Comey admitted under oath before Congress that the bureau did not utilize a federal grand jury in the Hillary e-mail investigation. Furthermore, he testified that in his experience, when dealing with attorneys, you can obtain information easier and faster than via a federal grand jury. Never, I repeat never, in my 25-year career have I or any FBI agent
