This week the Washington Post committed the greatest national security breech in the history of our country, and hardly anyone is talking about it. The Post printed transcripts of private telephone conversations between our President and the leaders of Mexico and Australia. The press is focused on the embarrassment the transcripts may have caused our President. Has the press gone mad? Do they not understand the consequences of what the Post has done? Are they so involved in their petty gossip that they don’t realize the Post has just endangered the ability of our President to communicate frankly and in
Comments: As many of us have been saying for many years, the so-called MSM has been committing, with malicious intent and brazen nonchalance, prosecutable crimes. They should, and must, be prosecuted for them.
They have proven over and over again that they don´t care as long as Democrats are in power. They are Socialist to the core and want Pres. Trump to fail because he does not adhere to the Socialist/Communist/ Progressive agenda. To them, we are the Deplorables and therefore expendable. Collateral damage. They are the stupid ones because they will go down with us if we go down.
Judith Miller´s jail time for refusing to reveal her source in the Valerie Plame case comes to mind. The judge held her in contempt of court. It is particularly memorable since the prosecutor knew from the start that Richard Armitage was the source. Another fishing expedition brought to us by special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, appointed by Jim Comey.
It´s high time the members of the Grand Old Stupid Party stop their ridiculous bloviating and actually do something about this. Haul Lynch, Clinton, Rice, Power, Rhodes, and about 100 more obamistas before a public committee, put them under oath and if they lie send them to prison. No more "inviting" them to testify. Hey Mitch--put the Senate in recess so the President can fill all those vacancies with recess appointments.
They promised to increase assets for their already-existing Leak Investigation Task Force, FBI Director Christ Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein have been assigned to personally oversee these efforts, and Sessions has a message for would-be leakers: “Don’t do it.”
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt, ball cap and DVD. I predict that under the GOP led Depends wearers (oxymoron, I know), leaks will actually triple. In order to make themselves look like they can actually affect positive change, they´ll fool you and I with nonsense that their programs are such wonderful things (you know, like Obamacare, EPA, the VA, welfare, etc, ad infinitum), that they´ll soon announce that leaks only happen once per day and not three times per day but in reality they´ll happen nine times per day.
Guess leaking private Washington political information is a lucrative business.
Doesn´t matter if its Trump transcripts with Australian and Mexican leaders, Hillary´s eMails, DNC eMails, etc. The people doing this need to face jail time. If you cannot catch the leakers and hackers (is there any difference?), go after the publishers since they might know who gave them the information.
The lesson here is don´t trust or give credence to any information that has been hacked or leaked. Its not really news.
The Washington Post has lost all credibility along with all other leftist ´news´ organizations.
The media´s reason for being is to damage our President. If they damage America, they do not care. If they undermine the trust that foreign leaders have in the confidential nature of talks with our President, they do not care.
Adios Prime and the rest. I´m not going to support sedition anymore
" don’t [they] realize the Post has just endangered the ability of our President to communicate frankly and in private with anyone?"
Doesn´t Jones realize that this represents exactly what anti-Trumpers mean by ´resist´? Anything and everything that serves the end of constraining PDJT´s ability to speak or act as President is fair game to them.
And as has been amply-demonstrated in the past year, WaPo, NYT, and CNN are zealously leading the way in the MSM´s effort to destroy Trump and thwart his administration in every way, Constitution or no Constitution).
RushLimbaugh expressed his thoughts about the “drive-by” media during his August 3rd program based on the density of so-called journalists listening to StephenMiller’s explanation of the “common sense” immigration bill. Rush said, “The Drive-By Media is populated with people who are not just biased and bigoted and prejudicial. It’s obvious that they are also the victims of an absolutely pathetic education system.” He goes on to point out that several generations have been dumbed down to the point of paralyzing our country, retarding our progress; we are regressing from the extraordinary progress this country held as a nation, culture, society.
It´s time to punish the press corpes without saying that is what you are doing. Briefings at 8Am Mondays and 4PM on Fridays. The doors close at start time. No one can come in the room after start time. Benches instead of chairs. When it is hot and humid, meet outside. Extra fee for electricity. Do these people have to go thru security? TSA can practice new skills and equipment on these people. When they complain, remind them that there are plenty of people who would be willing to do their jobs without complaining.
If these types of actions continue with the DOJ, FBI and all working to find the leakers and put them in prison and not being able to, then I see that the average citizens are going to take things in there hands. The dims simply don´t realize just who and why the citizens elected president. That the majority of this country are fed up with the socialist/communist type of "government" that the dims have become. And I foresee a shooting war coming. Call it a revolution or a civil war, it is going to come IF the current WH cannot put a stop to this mess.
Start very, very tightly compartmentalizing these NSA intercepts of public figures. When only one or two people are permitted to have legal access to data, when it appears in the press, just hang both of them.
#16, it was reported yesterday that Bezos also wants to take over the pharmacy business - no more going to Walgreens or your local supermarket pharmacy. Just order your meds from Amazon. What could possibly go wrong? One more step toward single payer health care.
It appears that Bezos wants to own the entire world economy.
I love Amazon and Prime but have decided that it´s time to live without them.
Were Rudy G. our AG the WashPost would be shuttered indefinitely for violation of national security until the sources were rooted out and punished. Freedom of the press does NOT extend to violation of law through such breaches of the security.
If Bezos doesn´t get control of his beast then the Feds need to shut it down.
Contrary to CTH, although I do trust PT, I don´t trust all the confirmed appointments. McMasters is one but Sessions is another. Draining the swamp doesn´t happen by appointing swamp creatures. Here´s Sessions warning the leakers that they will get in trouble if they don´t stop. This is like warning bank robbers that if they don´t stop they will be in big trouble. You don´t warn bank robbers you arrest them for the crimes they committed. You don´t uphold justice by telling bank robbers next time. You put a stop to leakers by tossing them into prison. How many here saw Comey on that July day of disgrace lay out all the evidence needed to start prosecuting the Clintons and gang for scams, mishandling of classified documents, bribes and all the rest of it? They are the swamp. Add up their crimes and they would be spending the rest of their lives in prison. The swamp is about having two sets of laws one for us and if we step out of line men come and take us away (H/T Buffalo Springfield) and those of our betters that get warned repeatedly and nothing happens. Most of us understand that our representatives make out like bandits when they get to the swamp through lobbyists, and campaign donations, and wizard like investments on those insider trades where if they don´t have it to invest someone will help them out and we know that these are thinly disguised bribes. If they go in poor they come out rich and if they go in rich they come out richer, said as a joke but it´s not a joke, it´s the swamp. Same goes for the "media" and the unions and the schools and colleges that are funded by taxpayer money. All those research projects? Sessions is slow walking, it´s an old senate trick.
What we are up against: 1. Democrats communicate emotionally, violently, with no common logic. Balkanized, womanized, love rejecting sexual anarchists, juvnile hipster criminals and stoners, White hating racists, cultural and artistic exiles, purposely uneducated and unprepared so highly resentful of the merit based work ethic, the heroic, the risk taking entrepreneur, and the innocent. It is never about lying or treason. "Truth begins at 90 AM, and is a lie by noon". They have one creative idea: kill you. 2. The Republicans. Formerly stewards of the Constitution and Christianity. Now lost and deranged. Catchers, not pitchers. Trapped into backing treacherous leaders and the surface status quo. Later bribed. Now fully persuaded that they need to shut up about their vision or their splinters. Know Trump is the underground hero. Know McCain is the state approved hero. Conflicted. Bought. Empty. Just better liars than the hoi polloi. 3. Conservatives. Americans. Impatient.
"Russia, Russia, Russia" isn´t working and may actually turn against the Democrats. What is next in their playbook? The usual racism page, although this time, it is for all of the marbles. With nothing to run on besides "Trump is evil," and with the Awan scandal ahead, they have no choice. Twenty-eighteen will be a bloodbath for them in a regular election, so they have to suppress turnout, if not eliminate it. More and more, Charlottesville looks like a setup. Jason Kessler, who organized the "Unite the Right" event, seems to have a history with the left. Aside from his Occupy
The people who are tearing down statues of Confederates in the South are barbarians, not notably different from the Taliban fanatics who blow up Buddhas and other historical monuments. Many have noted that if the barbarians want to erase Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis today, it is only a matter of time before they come for George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. We can add Abraham Lincoln to that list. Last night, a bust of Lincoln in Chicago was vandalized, apparently as a political act: Abraham Lincoln has joined George Washington on the list of those targeted by Chicagoans in
In the days since violent clashes at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville culminated in a neo-Nazi sympathizer driving his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, journalists have mainstreamed the self-described “anti-fascists” (or “antifa”) at the rally — largely ignoring their involvement in the escalating political violence in this country. Many establishment political figures insisted the far-left actors were just like American soldiers on D-Day. But these “anti-fascists´” own statements show they’re nothing like American soldiers on D-Day. They aren’t interested in protecting America’s system of government, according to their own statements — they’re interested in destroying it. From the very start of
America beat the Nazis. Then America beat the Commies. Now some self-styled Nazis are fighting some self-styled Commies on American soil, and our veterans have been drafted without their knowledge or consent. The Greatest Generation are now Communists, whether they like it or not. Ladies and gentlemen: Our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the media will congratulate themselves now. It’s weird how all these guys had the same idea at the same time, huh? I think this pretty much confirms the existence of JournoList 2.0. My grandfather was a career Navy man. He stood up to the Nazis, and
Marty Baron lives in a $1.7 million condo in Logan Circle. It’s seven blocks away from the headquarters of the Washington Post. And a 12 minute drive away from the FBI’s J Edgar Hoover Building. Arrest him. His paper’s latest contribution to wrecking this country is an editorial titled "Charlottesville showed that liberalism can´t defeat white supremacy. Only direct action can." It concludes with, “Start throwing rocks." "Resistance, be it forceful or clandestine, threatened or explicit, stands as our ´rock.´ Rocks can look like armed self-defense or nonviolent direct-action campaigns," N.D. B. Connolly, a history professor at Johns Hopkins who
Hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators and anti-Trump counter-protesters converged at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle on Sunday, resulting in several arrests and the confiscation of weapons. The rally, organized by the conservative group Patriot Prayer, came one day after violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left three people dead and dozens injured. Counter-protesters -- including antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Veterans for Peace, Indivisible Seattle, Black Lives Matter, and the Freedom Socialist Party -- marched "in solidarity against hate," specifically against what they called “the bigotry, racism and violence" of the "far-right" organizers. Solidarity Against Hate counter-protesters waved communist flags,
President Trump is still facing a torrent of criticism for his responses to the Charlottesville violence. After calling out the hatred and violence from “many sides” on Saturday, Trump finally did what the media demanded and condemned white nationalists and other hate groups by name. Yet, that wasn’t good enough for the chattering class, and the new denunciation is not winning the president any goodwill. While it’s certainly true the president could have articulated a better message over the weekend, his administration is taking a very hard line on the Charlottesville violence. The Department of Justice is launching a civil
Don´t tell anybody, but I´m actually beginning to love Trump. Not physically, natch, but as our funniest and most truthful president since Calvin Coolidge. Normal Americans have watched our politics turn to mud for a quarter century, since Bill Clinton, the Arkansas corruptocrat. We´ve watched it and watched it while the media turned into a copycat Soviet propaganda ministry, and now, finally, somebody is acting like an adult and talking without having to explain every single word. We know the State Department has been Foggy Bottom for decades, a place where Harvard grads go to rusticate -- effectively, to die as real
In Dallas, a black nationalist activist shot and killed 5 police officers at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally. Instead of condemning BLM, Barack Obama defended a racist hate group whose role model is Assata Shakur, a wanted black nationalist cop killer, at the funerals of the murdered officers. The left killed civil rights and replaced it with black nationalism. The racial supremacism of black nationalism that killed those officers is everywhere. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Ibram X. Kendi are lionized as brilliant thinkers instead of hateful racists, Amazon has ordered a black nationalist secessionist fantasy from Aaron McGruder and Showtime aired
Allum Bokhari: You are one of a number of current and former Google employees speaking out in the wake of the Viewpoint Diversity Memo. Is there anything particular that makes you support the principles in that document? Emmett: I’m happy you asked. I’m also happy you’re giving the document a more accurate name, as the mainstream media has almost universally been calling it the “Anti-Diversity Memo” which is both stupid and a lie. The fundamental starting point of the document is that there exist documented differences between men and women, which we see hash out in real life. That is
How many AT readers have found that they can no longer do a useful Google search on any news topic? The only hits that come up are liberal. Even the Wall Street Journal does not make it, although minor liberal papers like the Christian Science Monitor do. To find interesting commentary and reporting I trust, I have to go to my list of favorite websites and search on their pages. Following the firing this week of a valued employee for the thoughtcrime of questioning gender quotas, Breitbart is running a series called "Rebels of Google." Whistleblower employees are exposing the purposeful
One of the unspoken ´indications´ in the medical sense of the ever-metastasizing Trump Derangement Syndrome is that the sufferers have a deep conscious/unconscious fear that Trump is right. What if the man they have excoriated unremittingly as a barbarian-racist-xenophobe-homophobe -misogynist-nitwit turns out to have been on the correct side of a fair number of issues on which they have failed, sometimes miserably, for decades? Talk about personality disintegration — it would be hari-kari meets the Wicked Witch of the West. Well, emotionally anyway. The current North Korea crisis is a perfect case in point. Susan Rice — has this woman no
Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald. His daughter Caroline, a 22-year-old California resident, was also arrested at a home a short walk from the main Kennedy compound. (Snip) The arrests come after a brush with the law for another of RFK’s grandchildren, Conor Kennedy, who
“There must always” be a flow low-skilled immigration to the United States, no matter its impact on American workers, according to Republican establishment figure Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ). Flake slammed the idea of potentially cutting legal immigration levels in half to raise the wages of American workers and end the current low-skilled oriented system to make only admit immigrants based on their skills and merit in a New York Times op-ed. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) introduced the specific plan, known as the “RAISE Act.” President Donald Trump endorsed the plan and said the legislation “will reduce poverty, increase
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged
Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal hoped for the assassination of President Trump in a Facebook comment on Thursday then deleted it in a panic. She even acknowledged she would get a visit from the Secret Service for her comment. (Photo) Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s Facebook comment was so egregious that even ABC News reported on the story. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports: Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, posted a comment in a Facebook conversation Thursday morning saying she hoped President Donald Trump will be assassinated. The comment was removed but Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that she had written it in
The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Sunday gave a strong endorsement to the movement for removing monuments to leaders of the Confederacy and called for the electoral college to be abolished. Speaking at the Islamic Center of Southern California, Jackson blamed the electoral college system, giving disproportionate influence to less populated states, for the 2000 and 2016 loss of Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore and Hillary Clinton despite their winning the popular vote. “Today we are looking at a structural problem,” Jackson said. “These monuments must go. Calling for the audience to repeat, he said, “Say the monuments and the flags
WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump´s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year. The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it
Thanks to Monday´s solar eclipse, disastrous traffic jams have been taking over the country these last few days. And as folks leave the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse since 1918, the U.S. Department of Transportation estimated that nearly two-thirds of the nation´s resident live withing a day´s drive of the path of totality. And with Oregon being the first to see the eclipse, it and neighboring state Washington are experiencing the worst bouts of the traffic jams. ´This is the biggest transportation event that has ever hit Oregon,´ Dave Thompson, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation told AP. Oregon
A Texas college campus removed four statues of prominent Confederate figures in an overnight sweep, according to reports. The statues of Gen. Robert E. Lee, Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston, Confederate Postmaster General John H. Reagan and former Texas Gov. James Stephen Hogg were each taken down from the campus’ Main Mall in an operation beginning just before midnight and continuing through the early morning, KSAT 12 reported. “Last week, the horrific displays of hatred at the University of Virginia and in Charlottesville shocked and saddened the nation,” University of Texas President Greg Fenves said in a statement. “These events make
The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared. For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:
As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,
President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had
Black Lives Matter activist Chanelle Helm released a list of “requests” to white people in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this month. Helm, the so-called “cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville,” explained in an article published at Leoweekly.com the things she says need to “change.” “White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty,” Helm writes in an article titled “White people, here are 10 requests from a Black Lives Matter leader.” White people are asked, “Give up the
