Buzz Paterson, the White House military aide who carried the “nuclear football” information for former President Bill Clinton, said that a member of the intelligence community broke the “circle of trust” by filing a complaint with the Intelligence Community Inspector General about a private phone call President Trump had with a world leader, as well as leaking this information to Congress. According to media reports, the intelligence official had filed a complaint with the ICIG alleging an inappropriate promise made by the president. “I was President Bill Clinton’s Air Force military aide from 1996 to 1999,” Patterson told The Epoch Times, explaining that he lived and worked

Speaking of the nuclear football and Bill Clinton, sometime between 1998-2000 Clinton lost his nuclear code ID card. The code numbers are needed to open the breifcase. It remained missing for at least a few months, possibly years. Accounts as to the date he lost it vary from 1998-2000. Insiders who knew about it didn't mention it until at least 2003. One account describes how people frantically looked for it. Articles appeared in the Atlantic, UK Telegraph, and Daily Mail. Naturally, Mr. Patterson described in this article wasn't going to say a word even if he knew.

This "scandal", like all the other phony bombshells, will pass. Right now, Trump is Teflon.

The dems will just not let up. They are determined to end this President’s term one way or another. How in the world does he function at all with this den of vipers just waiting to strike at any moment. It is outrageous. It would make anyone paranoid. The absolute garbage this President has to put up with would paralyze most men. He just forges ahead and gets the job done any way he can. It really is amazing and at the same time it is heart breaking to watch him go through this on behalf of the country and the American people. Don’t think Americans aren’t watching. They are and will vote accordingly.

Mr. Patterson is right about a lot of things! One stands out to me, Trump needs to weed out those who are working for the Democrats. Doesn't matter if they are "Career" employees. If they're caught in a leak or lie, they should be fired because they probably have done it many times, only they weren't caught! These are people who thought Obama walked on Water and will do anything they can to take out Trump. IMHO, it's The President's Business who he speaks with and if there are those he asked to listen to the call, he SHOULD be able to trust them to keep that call confidential. IF they choose to leak, there should be a consequence. Just because they CALL him a "Whistleblower", doesn't mean he REALLY isn't a "Leaker"!

Look, this is one more "charge" to lay on PDT as the campaign season ramps up. More rumor and innuendo by an anonymous source handed to an IG for endless investigation. It is one of what is certainly more to come as the election campaign warms. This is another Uniparty production, handed to PDT's "friends" in the Deep State, i.e. the Intel community. Once again, the object is to either 1) Stop the Trump 2020 campaign before the primary season to allow a "top tier" challenger (that would be Mitt), or 2) To make PDT politically radioactive going into the '20 elections to prevent his re-election. It's what Nadler's "impeachment hearings" are all about...even when they backfire.

I would not doubt this is all phony story pushed by The Democracy Integrity Project (TDIP) which pumps out daily "briefings" to prominent Washington journalists, as well as Congressional staffers. They did this during the Russian collusion scheme, and likely continuing on other stories now.

It would be a hoot if the person President Trump was talking with on the phone was Giuliani, posing as a Ukraine official, in a scheme to set up a suspected leaker!

Whose to say that the so-called “whistleblower” is not a partisan progressive Democrat who is out to drive Biden out of the Democrat primary race, by highlighting political corruption involving Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden who was given huge amounts of money by Ukrainian interests at the time that Joe Biden was handling Ukrainian foreign affairs during the Obama Administration. Federal Agency Inspector Generals do not have any authority or jurisdiction to initiate investigations targeting the President of the USA. Clearly the “complaint” was routed through an Agency Inspector General in an effort to shield the “whistleblower’s” identity from discovery under the “whistleblower” laws. Obviously the “whistleblower” also transmitted his or her “complaint” to highly partisan Democrat Members of Congress that ensured that the raw and “spun” complaint would be made public, but not the “whistleblower’s” identity. Obviously the “whistleblower” took a cheap shot at both Joe Biden and President Trump.

This "whistle blower" needs permanent reassignment to another part of government, preferably in Minot, North Dakota. That partisan civil service worker can never be trusted again. That conversation was within the purview of the President, who is the chief law enforcement officer in the nation.

One of America’s great men, FDR, although not without faults, began the practice of speaking to the nation via radio shortly after he was inaugurated in the winter of 1933. He was talking about the banking crisis that then enveloped the nation and his aim to was to alert the people about the problem and then sell them on his drastic proposals to shut all the banks, audit any and all of them, and then reopen the ones that were basically sound and put in place restrictions and guarantees that still underlay the banking system in this country.

We are in the middle of a media feeding frenzy over a supposed intelligence community whistleblower complaint on Trump’s conversation last summer with the Ukrainian president. We know almost nothing about the complaint or the conversation, but that has not stopped a full-blown “we’ve got him now!” type joyfulness throughout the mainstream media and Never-Trump-land. Lack of actual facts has not stopped Democrat candidates and various pundits from declaring that this is further ground for impeachment. The initial claim was that Trump threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine if it didn’t investigate the business dealings of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, while Joe was Vice President. Then the story changed,

Last week, in a Democratic presidential debate, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro read a list of black Americans killed by police violence. Alongside Laquan McDonald, Walter Scott, and Eric Garner, Castro named Michael Brown, who was shot dead five years ago in Ferguson, Missouri. Several of the current Democratic candidates have accused the officer who shot Brown of murder. Brown’s death was a tragedy, but it wasn’t a murder. When Democrats claim it was, and when they refuse to correct that mistake, they cast doubt on their commitment to truth. And they undermine the cause of criminal justice reform. Brown became an icon of the Black Lives Matter

Like any religion, wokeness understands the need to convert children. The old Jesuit motto (sometimes attributed to Voltaire) was, after all, “Give me the child for the first seven years and I will give you the man.” And so I was moved but not particularly surprised by George Packer’s tale of a progressive school banishing separate restrooms for boys and girls because this reinforces the gender binary. The school did not inform parents of this, of course: Parents only heard about it when children started arriving home desperate to get to the bathroom after holding it in all day.

Chick-fil-A has more than doubled its annual sales since gay rights advocates called for a boycott of the chicken chain restaurant after it was revealed nearly a decade ago that the company donated to organizations that opposed same-sex marriage. In 2018, the company had $10.5 billion in total sales, becoming the third-largest chain in the nation behind Starbucks ($20.5 billion) and McDonald’s ($38.5 billion). It was a 16.7% increase in sales from the year prior. An analysis credited the growth to a variety of factors, including the opening of nearly 700 more locations in recent years, low start-up costs, and digital sales via delivery apps. There are now more than 2,400 locations nationwide,

The Trump administration signed an asylum agreement Friday with El Salvador, giving the U.S. the right to repatriate migrants who cross through El Salvador to reach the U.S. and who then request asylum here. Officials hope the agreement, along with a similar one signed with Guatemala over the summer, will change the incentives that have spurred this year’s illegal immigration surge at the border. Most asylum-seekers have bogus claims and won’t win their cases, but under the current system, many of them were allowed to remain in the U.S. while they argued their case — giving them a foothold here. Officials believe that if they can block those bogus asylum-seekers

When Donald Trump was elected President of the United States on Nov. 7, 2016, it came as a shock to the country. The tough campaign worked for the billionaire businessman, who had never held public office before. He tore down the once reliable blue wall of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, beating the Clinton dynasty once and for all. This is when the delusion and denial began. Democrats and their allies in the media, led by twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, were stunned and in disbelief. Instead of accepting the results put forward by the voting American public, Democrats tried to discredit Trump’s victory through allegations of cheating and Russian collusion.

She also raised the stakes by vowing to quit the race if she can’t muster a win, place or show in the Hawkeye State’s leadoff caucuses Feb. 3. “We want to make sure that we have a strong top-three finish,” said Harris campaign manager Juan Rodriguez. “I think that will kind of continue to give us a slingshot to go into that early primary state calendar and then make sure that we’re also competitive heading into Super Tuesday.”

Nadler’s remarks were made as he spoke in Washington, D.C., at one of several global climate strike protests. “We have to make sure people feel the depth and the immediacy of this crisis, which is approaching us much more rapidly and much worse than the scientists proposed twenty years ago and ten years ago,” Nadler said. “Half measures will not do,” Nadler continued. “We are facing a crisis. If we had a world war, God forbid, the country would mobilize.”

Cory Booker has become the latest Democratic presidential candidate to back unionizing entire industries by supporting a concept called "sectoral bargaining." The idea dates back to the 1930s and involves the federal government creating union-management committees that would set wages and other work standards. The change, if adopted, would radically shift the business landscape across the U.S. Under sectoral bargaining, unions would be granted enormous power over industries, while businesses would be strictly limited in the workplace policies they could adopt. All workers in an industry would be represented by the union officials on the committees. The New Jersey senator
