House Intel Memo Shows Just How Politicized
The Obama Administration Had Become

The Federalist, by John Daniel Davidson

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/3/2018 10:36:26 AM

The memo is out, and it’s bad. Is shows, unequivocally, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation used political opposition research paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign to get a secret court warrant to spy on a Trump campaign member. It also shows that the FBI omitted vital information in its warrant request to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court. Namely, the FBI kept asking for warrant renewals (FISA wiretapping permission expires after 90 days) without telling the court the FBI itself had dismissed Christopher Steele, who generated the opposition research, for lying to the

Make no mistake this corruption goes straight to Obama. He should be held accountable and share a cell with Eric Holder.

Sadly, as the tale of the IRS illegal actions illustrate, the FISA Memo will most likely not yield to any definitive action against the villains committing TREASON attempting to overthrow the US Constitution and a duly elected President. This whole thing will be slow rolled for 4 or 8 years.

Sessions/Rosenstein will not fire Mueller and close the Russia Collusion investigation and Mueller will not issue any significant indictments but keep his ´investigation´ going.

It´s a eternal standoff that cannot be ended by either side without precipitating a huge crisis beyond the control of either side.

Truly a conundrum.

Not everyone would claim that a lot of the institutional rot in our federal government could have been avoided had we not elected the Kenyan Fascist in 2008. I do, though.

Have you noticed that the two top dogs, i.e. Obola and Felonia Von Pantsuit, have not been mentioned. I´d like to be a fly on both their walls but would probably not like the audacity with which they both blow this little bump in the road off.

Korean Summit Strains Capacity of

The news that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would meet with President Trump has strained the prodigious capacity of the Trump Resistance to debunk his accomplishments. Anti-Trump journalists who don’t know anything about war in general, and specifically very little about the deployment of forces in the Korean Peninsula, have been shrieking from the rooftops of America since the election that Mr. Trump was capable of blowing up the world in Korea.It has been generally assumed that any American military action would instantly lead to attacks upon South Korea and Japan.

To Retake Washington, Democrats

Given the utter train wreck that the Donald Trump presidency has been from day one, logic would suggest that Democrats could run a basket full of dirty, mismatched socks for president in 2020 and stand a better than 50-50 chance of winning back the White House. But logic has rarely applied in the Trump Age, and Democrats—let’s face it—haven’t been so good at politics in recent years, though Trump has been the best thing that’s happened to them electorally since “Yes We Can,” producing a winning streak that has been consistent since the four overhyped GOP wins culminating in Georgia’s ruby

Larry Kudlow is the right man to advise

When we see the initials GOP, we think of the Republican nickname — Grand Old Party. With Larry Kudlow’s appointment as the new director of the National Economic Council, those initials might soon become an acronym for Growth, Opportunity, and Prosperity. Since his days working in Ronald Reagan’s budget office, Kudlow has been the happy warrior fighting for policies that would enable all of us to have better lives. He played an indispensable role in devising the 40th president’s economic revival program of promoting tax cuts, battling inflation, cutting regulations and reducing trade barriers. Not for him the pessimism of those

Pennsylvania election: Sound and fury,

Sound and fury, signifying … almost nothing. Tuesday night’s hard-fought battle in a congressional riding that U.S. President Donald Trump carried by 20 percentage points in 2016 left Conor Lamb, the Democrat, with an advantage of a few hundred votes while leaving Rick Saccone, the Republican, in the position of challenging the result and perhaps even pushing for a cumbersome recount. The results sent shock waves across the United States, cheering liberals, discomfiting Trump supporters and raising questions about the durability of the President’s appeal in regions chock full of his rebellious supporters. But in truth, the special election in the Pittsburgh suburbs

Obamacare Bailout: Dumb Policy
Dumber Politics
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/15/2018 6:00:42     Post Reply
The congressional leadership of the GOP seems determined to hand their congressional majorities back to the Democrats. Otherwise, why would they even consider including two Obamacare bailouts — the cost-sharing reduction (CSR) and risk mitigation programs — in the upcoming omnibus budget bill? These bailouts would allegedly reduce future increases in health insurance premiums and incentivize insurers to remain in the Obamacare exchanges. They will accomplish neither, but they will send a signal to the voters that the GOP was never serious about getting rid of Obamacare. The taxpayer-funded bailouts would be, in other words, bad policy and worse politics.

Ruth Marcus and the Morality

Ruth Marcus, the Washington Post’s deputy editorial page editor who last week loudly defended eugenics against the disabled, often joins the chorus of ruling-class liberals disturbed by Trump’s salty talk. As NBC’s Chuck Todd recently put it, “When he uses vulgarity to talk about individuals, what are [parents] supposed to tell their kids?” Todd had been stung by Trump’s description of him as a “sleeping son of a b---.” No doubt Marcus nodded approvingly as Todd asked that question of Trump’s Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. But Todd’s question sounds a bit anachronistic in the rancid culture establishment liberals have spent




Democrats’ shabby attack on

The latest Washington cry of “You’re Fired!” will elevate current CIA Director Mike Pompeo to the secretary of state’s chair. He’s reasonably qualified and up to date on global challenges. After enduring a few circus stunts on the Hill, he’ll be confirmed as our nation’s chief diplomat. As long as he can summon the guts to challenge the president when necessary, Pom­peo should do a competent job. A shabbily unfair controversy has already begun, though, over Pompeo’s successor at the CIA. The administration’s choice is Gina Haspel, now deputy director and an agency veteran since 1985. She has extensive undercover

In Texas, Encouraging Signs
for Republicans
National Journal, by Josh Kraushaar    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/12/2018 5:52:29     Post Reply
After declining to endorse Donald Trump at the Republican convention in 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz laid low for a while. The conservative firebrand meekly returned to the Trumpian fold, while keeping a much lower profile in Washington after Trump’s victory. He lost some support from his base, while trying to navigate a new political world where—at least in 2016—Texas was a more competitive state for Republicans than Iowa. But Cruz’s early pugnacious strategy for his reelection campaign hints that Texas isn’t changing as much as optimistic Democrats believe.

Can ‘Texas v. United States’ Set

Ignore everything you have been told by the “news” media about Texas v. United States, the lawsuit recently filed by 20 states challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare. The Fourth Estate, in its all but official role as the public relations department of the Democratic Party, has generally downplayed the suit as yet another futile attempt by fanatical Republicans bent on destroying former President Obama’s “legacy.” Following their usual playbook for reporting constitutional challenges to the “Affordable Care Act” the media briefly sneered about its merits and then, to paraphrase David Burge, “covered the story with a pillow.”

Hollywood’s biggest night of the year turned into one of the smallest as viewers refused to watch a conga line of virtue-signaling celebrities preen about politics. According to the Los Angeles Times, fewer people watched the Oscars in 2018 than any other year: The audience for ABC´s Sunday annual telecast of the Oscars declined for a fourth consecutive year, according to Nielsen data, dropping to an all-time low of 26.5 million viewers. The dip of nearly 20% from last year put it under the previous low of 32 million in 2008. Yet, after the exploitative and propaganda-laced CNN town hall addressing the Parkland

The New Challenge to Obamacare
Reason, by Randy Barnett    Original Article

Readers may be familiar with a new constitutional challenge by 20 state attorneys general to the Affordable Care Act, which Ilya blogged about here. Their argument, in a nutshell, is that with the amount of the penalty for failing to have health insurance now set to zero, the individual insurance "requirement"--AKA the "individual mandate"--can no longer be justified as a tax. This is so because one of the essential characteristics of a tax is that it raises at least some revenue for the government. For this reason, the "saving construction" employed by Chief Justice Roberts no longer applies, as it

The prevailing wisdom suggests that there will be a Democratic wave election in 2018. In a manner that suggests that little was learned from the 2016 primary or general elections, pundits and analysts seem so committed to this narrative that they promote it even when the data point in the other direction. The primaries in Texas on Tuesday are a good case in point. Early-voting numbers suggested good news for the Democrats: 465,245 voters took part in early voting for their primary, as compared to 420,329 for the Republicans’. This is a big gain for Democrats over their totals in the previous

Hillary Clinton will bring home a most undesired souvenir from India - a fractured wrist. The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday, after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur. Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening. But the pain only worsened, and by Wednesday morning she decided to get her hand checked out at Goyal Hospital. Doctors there administered a CT Scan and an X-ray of Clinton´s wrist,

Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire. Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.” He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe

Sheet happens. Two days after a nasty fall in a hotel bathtub left Hillary Clinton with a broken wrist, the former Secretary of State was spotted making the best of a bad situation while continuing her tour of India. Hillary was seen in Jaipur on Thursday where she appeared to be adopting an out-of-sight and out-of-mind approach to her recent injury by wearing a kurta that had been customized to make one sleeve longer than other. To achieve this, the loose and flowing top was wrapped tightly around Hillary´s torso, transforming the once comfortable piece into a more constricting look complete

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been fired. Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommended a review by the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility. The referral was based on IG Horowitz interviewing McCabe and identifying McCabe was lying about his instructions to FBI Communication Director Michael Kortan leaking to media on his behalf. Mike Kortan, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok then proceeded to leak to Devlin Barrett (WSJ and WaPo), along with other journalists, with approvals from Andrew McCabe. After IG Horowitz referred McCabe’s false statements to the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), the OPR investigated and

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Thursday made a final pitch to the Justice Department about why he should not be fired just 72 hours before his retirement, leaving Attorney General Jeff Sessions to decide the matter with a deadline rapidly approaching. McCabe did not meet with Sessions, who was traveling Thursday, but with other senior officials, including Scott Schools, the most senior career attorney in the department. He arrived around 1 p.m. and departed four hours later. The decision could be consequential for McCabe´s financial future, as if he is fired, he could lose significant retirement benefits. The

Friday´s firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history. Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General´s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates." From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in

The pedestrian bridge that collapsed at Florida International University´s Miami-Dade campus today, killing several people, was funded with $11.4 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation´s Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. The TIGER program has come under repeated fire for awarding money based on politics rather than merit. (Snip) In 2014, the GAO released a report that was highly critical of how DOT handled the TIGER V grants, which included money for the FIU pedestrian bridge project. The report said DOT advanced projects with lower technical ratings in lieu of those with higher technical ratings and upgraded the

In view of this, I must withdraw from the conference." The conference was in 2013, in Jerusalem, and hosted by Shimon Peres, an Israeli leader who spent his career as an indefatigable advocate of peace. It didn´t matter. Hawking joined the BDS movement because he never met a fashionable far-left cause he didn´t like, and Israel-bashing was one of his favorites.
