My experience with Andy McCabe:
No criticizing James Comey allowed

The Hill, by Ari Fleischer

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/3/2018 10:32:03 AM

I don’t know former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. I’ve never met him. But I was supposed to. I was in an FBI car last June on my way to meet him and other top law enforcement leaders at a counterterrorism communications training event at the 9/11 Museum in New York City when McCabe suddenly ordered me not to show up. The car pulled up outside the museum and I was told not to come inside. I took a taxi back to my hotel and went home. Based on my one and only experience with McCabe, it proved to me that

The little drip McCabe and others of the top tier totally out of control. One has to wonder if they shared some drugs from some people that they had arrested.
A long time ago Ed Klein wrote,´Comey believes he is doing God´s will´! I rest my case!

This was absurd. A ridiculous, petty, self-disclosing thing to do. It did not help Comey. An interesting look at what must have been the Comey culture at the FBI.

That said, Ari Fleischer is a figure from the past who now seems intent on inserting himself into the present situation with the FBI and the Nunes memo. He has been on every program I’ve watched in the last 24 hours.

He was a press secretary. He is not even a peripheral character in what is going on. His presence and opinions seem intrusive and self-serving.

Further proof that McCabe was exactly the worst possible kind of partisan political hack and fawning ´politics of personality´ syncophant that we absolutely do not EVER need in the top levels of law enforcement.

Get his pension, and have him indicted for corruption.

The FBI needs to be dissolved.

Yes, there may be good agents but there is a toxic culture radiating down from the top. This culture cannot be changed. It can´t be fixed. Maybe we don´t even need this level of bureaucratic policing with current practices, communication.

OK, I saw that Michael Flynn Jr. tweeted a quote from McCabe. It was from a invite only meeting where McCabe said something like - "First we f##k Flyn. Then we f##k Trump."
Can anyone confirm that quote?

Supposedly some of the agents present did not like McCabe’s remark and leaked it.

But there’s no confirmation that I could find. Maybe someone else?

Medicaid and the Democratic
War on Work
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/21/2018 6:40:16     Post Reply
When the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that states could experiment with work requirements as a prerequisite for Medicaid eligibility, the Democrats denounced the policy as racist and cruel. They didn’t explain how such requirements could possibly be racist in states whose Medicaid populations are nearly 100 percent white. Nor did they say what is cruel about asking Medicaid enrollees to do something that will, according to numerous studies, improve their well-being. The science says that work will be good for their physical, psychological, and fiscal health. So, why have the Democrats declared war on work?

Krugman on Drugs
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/15/2018 2:02:59     Post Reply
When President Trump introduced the “American Patients First” blueprint for reducing drug prices, it was inevitable that the Democrats and their media enablers would immediately denounce the plan, the team that put it together, and the President himself. (Snip) Thus, it wasn’t shocking that Paul Krugman’s contribution to the chorus of complaints also included that shopworn argument. It was something of a surprise, however, to see that Krugman so far forgot himself that he let the cat out of the bag concerning why allowing Medicare to “negotiate” drug prices is such a bad idea.

Why Trump Is a President Like No Other
American Greatness, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/15/2018 11:20:45     Post Reply
Conrad Black’s erudite biography of Donald J. Trump is different from the usual in mediis rebus accounts of first-year presidents. He avoids the Bob Woodward fly-on-the-wall unattributed anecdote, and “they say” gossip mongering. Nor is the book a rush-to-publish product from former insiders of the Trump campaign or administration. Instead, Black, a prolific and insightful historian, adopts the annalistic method in carefully tracing Trump’s earliest years in business through his various commercial misadventures, financial recoveries, and sometimes wild antics. Black’s aim is to illustrate how much of what Trump has done since announcing his presidential candidacy in summer 2015 is

Trump puts his stamp on the globe
The Hill, by Niall Stanage    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/15/2018 11:14:18     Post Reply
President Trump, elected primarily on domestic issues, has surprised critics and detractors alike by putting a big imprint on foreign affairs in his first 16 months in office. Recent international developments — the president’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the moving of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — are only the latest significant moves. By contrast, Trump’s major achievements at home have been largely limited to the passage of a large tax cut in December and the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as a Supreme Court justice more than a year ago. But in the international arena

Trump’s Excellent Plan
to Reduce Drug Prices
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/14/2018 5:55:17     Post Reply
Last Friday, President Trump caused consternation among Democrats and their media allies by introducing an eminently sensible blueprint for reducing drug prices. The 50-point “American Patients First” plan addresses four broad challenges: High list prices for drugs, government programs overpaying for drugs, rising out-of-pocket costs for consumers, and foreign governments free-riding off American innovation. The blueprint relies on free market competition and private-sector negotiation rather than regulatory coercion and price controls. And, assuming his plan works as designed, President Trump will have succeeded where his

Don Blankenship Advisor: He’ll Make
Sure The GOP Nominee Doesn’t Win The
West Virginia Senate Seat
Hot Air, by Allahpundit    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/13/2018 11:18:32     Post Reply
“All options are on the table,” one of his top strategists said in an interview this week when asked what Blankenship might do to play spoiler. One option that’s not on the table is running as an independent himself, thanks to West Virginia’s “sore loser” law. But he could run attack ads against nominee Patrick Morrisey or even help bankroll a third-party challenger. He’s got the dough, and apparently the butthurt, to do it.How much can we fault this guy for not being in a “party unity” mood when Mitch McConnell just spent $2 million to make sure he lost

Schumer, Menendez and the
other Iran-deal hypocrites
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article

Among those slamming President Trump for withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal are several members of Congress, mostly Democrats, who opposed it then and say they still do now. People like New York’s Sen. Chuck Schumer, who came out against the deal but then sat quietly rather than publicly push to defeat it. After Trump killed it, he said: “The right thing to do would have been to try and come up with our allies with an agreement on those issues and let the nuclear part of this continue as is because it’s not being violated in any way.” Huh? Team Trump spent

Senator McCain’s Regrets
New York Sun, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/12/2018 11:13:05     Post Reply
As death flutters around the back-yard deck of Senator John McCain, it’s sad to read reports that the scrappy Sandcutter regrets picking Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate and wishes he had instead picked Senator Jos. Lieberman. The only person diminished by this kind of talk is Senator McCain himself, and the heroic Arizonan deserves better.Not that we lack for love of Mr. Lieberman. The Sun was the first newspaper to sketch the rationale for Mr. McCain to bring in Mr. Lieberman as his running mate. That was in an enthusiastic editorial called “The Logic of Lieberman.”

Confirm Haspel: The intelligent

New Hampshire Union Leader, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/11/2018 12:30:19     Post Reply
The use of enhanced interrogation techniques is a legitimate public policy question, though not the most pressing one facing America’s intelligence community. Yet it has dominated the confirmation battle of Gina Haspel, President Trump’s nominee to head the Central Intelligence Agency. Several senators want to block Haspel because she served as station chief in Thailand when al Qaeda terrorists were subjected to waterboarding and other unpleasant interrogation methods. Critics call this torture. The CIA has since ceased using those techniques. Haspel says she would not restart an interrogation program. Much of Haspel’s 33-year career remains classified, but she has received stellar endorsements

   

 



 
The Wipeout of Obama’s Legacy
Weekly Standard, by Fred Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/11/2018 12:24:03     Post Reply
President Obama’s legacy is rapidly vanishing. The decision by President Trump to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran is the biggest blow, but it’s only the latest. The elimination of the individual mandate and canceling the yearly bailout of insurance companies have left Obamacare in a precarious condition. Young immigrants whose parents brought them to the United States unlawfully—so-called dreamers—are losing their legal status. This is historic. Presidents often vow to wipe out big chunks of their predecessor’s legacies. President Eisenhower was going to take on the New Deal. Ronald Reagan targeted the Great Society. Both backed down.

For Democrats, the Don Blankenship dream is over. The coal-mining baron and ex-con was a pleasant diversion—the prospect of yet another train-wreck Republican candidate was exactly the kind of opponent that Sen. Joe Manchin needed in his dicey reelection campaign in West Virginia—but now it’s back to the reality of a merciless map that offers little hope for Chuck Schumer’s dream of becoming majority leader. It may be the cruelest irony of the Trump era. During an election season when the House seems to be a lost cause for Republicans and nearly every indicator suggests massive Democratic gains in November

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

Pope Francis has reportedly told a gay man that "God made you that way and loves you as you are," apparently pushing the pontiff´s acceptance of homosexuality to a new level. Francis made the comments to Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean victim of priestly sexual abuse who recently spent days with the pope at the Vatican to discuss his ordeal as the pontiff moves to tackle decades of coverups and ostracism of victims in the Chilean church, according to the Spanish newspaper El Pais.

At the end of all the scandal and drama, all of the breathlessly reported lies and false accusations, at the end of all the money wasted on some zany kabuki swamp dance choreographed to the thrumming of giant bullfrogs and yipping of excited coyotes — at the end of all of this — it comes down to precisely what we said it was a year and a half ago. The Obama administration — with or without the knowledge and direction of President Obama himself — perverted one of the most powerful, clandestine spying operations in the world and used it at the very height of a presidential campaign to spy on political opponents,

Kerry served as the secretary of state for former President Barack Obama. He also, notably, was one of the key negotiators for the administration when it was

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted.

On Sunday, Trump said he would demand the DOJ investigate the matter.

California is poised to become the first state in the nation to offer full health coverage to undocumented adults even as the Trump administration intensifies its crackdown by separating families at the border. (Snip) But at a time when Trump is already attempting to re-energize state Republican voters — he met with California conservatives at the White House last week to strategize against the state’s sanctuary policies — the initiative might be risky. For starters, it will be costly: The annual price tag to expand Medicaid benefits to poor adult immigrants without legal status is projected at $3 billion annually.
