As usual, Trump called me a
sleaze. But the audience reaction
to his rant was more upsetting.

The most important thing that happened during President Trump’s post-impeachment rant at the White House didn’t happen at the lectern. Yes, as usual, he called me a sleaze and scum and a dirty cop and said he likely would no longer be president if he hadn’t fired me. Although I still can’t follow the logic of that last bit, it doesn’t matter. The important thing was what happened in the audience, where there were plenty of intelligent people of deep commitment to religious principle. They laughed and smiled and clapped as a president of the United States lied, bullied, cursed and belittled the faith of other leaders. That was the deeply disturbing

A total lack of self awareness. If a crowd of people agree that you're a sleaze....you're a sleaze. Deal with it.

A pompous, arrogant, sanctimonious baffoon, and a prolific criminal who miserably fell from grace. America's been very kind and generous if a criminal like him could still freely criticize the President and not Ashtray Hillary.

Did it ever occur to you, James Comey, that your party started this infantile debacle starting with the recounts in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin? If Hillary and company would have been gracious losers, this country could have moved in a different direction. Nope, that didn't happen and now you are whining. Maybe you should grow up from this infantile tantrum and move on.

I'm weary and doubtful about any full reckoning in what is undeniably the worst Justice Department scandal in American history and I doubt if Comey, much less the (always keeps his own hands clean) Obama will ever be charged for what I suspect is their culpability in the use of the DOJ (as well as other federal agencies, including the CIA) to undermine the campaign and subsequent presidency of Donald J. Trump. Meanwhile, the ever arrogant and pompous Mr. Comey continues his pious and self-righteous condemnation of those who rightly call him out for his misdoings. It would be unkind to wish that Mr. Comey and Mr. Romney be locked in a room together, where they could spend the rest of their lives vying for who is the most noble, so I won't wish it.

At 18 my head was shaved and at 19, I was sent to Vietnam. We as kids somehow managed to do what was right although we missed home too. I'm sure this student had it rough but in Nam we had no time to disrespect our brothers. This guy is a sleaze and by his own admission also was as a young lad. How he got to the head of the FBI is amazing but he was no "cop."

That’s nothing compared to what PDT is about to bring down on your head. There will be no prayers for you. Only justice.

Trump must have bullseyed on this one for Comey to trip over himself rushing to his laptop to write an article about it. His suggestion that everyone should have left the room when Comey got criticized was really quaint. His entire life is played out in his own head.

Comey is one of many on the left who have difficulty in a reality based world. They fantasize about what they want to be real, and for them it becomes real. He is experiencing delusion. Just as Pharaoh had his heart hardened by God, based on his thought choices, those in the end times will be sent a strong delusion, based on their choices to believe a lie. "And for this cause God shall send them strong DELUSION, that they should believe a lie." ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:11

The holier than thou James Comey is quickly finding out that when he took on President Trump that he was not taking on the usual wimpy Republican career DC politician, but a counterpunching New York City Street fighter in the mode of a junkyard dog. By this time Comey should also be figuring out that he will not be able to fool all the people all of the time.

OK - his point is it is wrong to go along with a group - he did it to that boy in college. Hmmm. Did he NOT just do it to Trump by going along with Jarret, Obama, Rick, Clapper, Brennan and the rest of the sickos who thought they had the moral authority to destroy the duly elected President of the USA? This is typical hypocrisy - you see in others the very sickness that permeates your own being. Somebody needs to prosecute this airhead.

in this article, Mr. Comey admitted to being a bully in college and causing pain to an innocent young man. College students pull many pranks, perhaps drink a little too much, and do lots of things that make them uncomfortable later in life. But not many of them are bullies. A college student who is capable of bullying another is already manifesting a part of his adult character. Mr. Comey, and those who answered to him, consistently vilified, slandered, and discredited Donald J. Trump - and they did it secretly, viciously, and without reason. Once a bully, always a bully.

Calling Comey personal names is quite tame. The man committed sedition, as well as refusing to prosecute others who did the same. In fact, Hillarly committed TREASON and he did not hold her accountable. WHY ? She didn't intend to do so, as per Comey. Well we ALL know she da*n well did intend to do so, a, in any event, that INTENT has no bearing on the matter. Comney shpuld have been dismissed from his post and disbarred for his treachery.

Okay, I believe we've established Comey is a reprobate. And we're pretty much preaching to the choir here. My biggest concern is how such an (historically) esteemed institution could continue to promote such an individual to it's upper ranks and how many more are in high-level leadership rolls right now? Comey is a symptom and unless the cause is rooted out and addressed nothing will change institutionally. Director Wray is unsuited for job as he, too, is a symptom.

I heard the democrats say that Trump is treating the Presidency like a reality show. Well, I agree. We finally have a President who deals with reality and does not live on the fantasy island that the democrats want us to inhabit. The island where communism is a good thing and socialists are our saviors. The place where Venezuela is a land of milk and honey rather than the hideous pit of starvation that it has become. Comey is about as low a being as we can in fact encounter on this planet. He and his cohorts are treasonous and dangerous. I certainly hope that Barr and Durham are going to bring the trio of Comey, Brennan and Clapper to the justice that they deserve and prove that our justice system still exists.

When Leftists are unable to defend the indefensible, they blame others, especially people of faith. Mr. Comey asserts that President Trump “lied, bullied, cursed, and belittled the faith of other leaders.” President Trump most assuredly did not lie, and he did not bully--he told the truth. Truth-telling makes Leftists uncomfortable because they do not want to acknowledge the truth. The expletive used by President Trump is possibly one used by Mr. Comey and other Leftists on occasion and pales in comparison to the absolute vulgarity of a particular “f” word that has become commonplace in the language of Leftists. As for “the faith of other leaders,” it is not unusual for politicians to use “faith” as political cover as evidenced by Nancy Pelosi and Mitt Romney this past week. Such cover, however, falls short of reality when compared to their actual behavior, their words and deeds, which are unbecoming and revulsive to people of faith.

Yo Jim! When you set up Michael Flynn in the White House, sending in Lisa's lover, Peter Struck Stroke, that was disgusting and you knew very well an improper and corrupt use of your power as FBI chief. And how about you stoking that liberal sycophant crowd at the 92nd Street Y in NYC who "laughed and smiled and clapped" when you described how you set up General Michael Flynn and how that would not have worked in a more seasoned White House. As you gleefully described how you ruined a man's career and family and drove him into bankruptcy your audience whooped and hollered in giddy admiration. And now you whine at the well deserved reaction of Trump and that audience to your corruption? Every good FBI agent must be sickened knowing that you once headed up that once great institution. You are a stain on our national consciousness.

It is beyond comprehension how some people, not just Nancy Pelosi, Mitt Romney and James Comey can think or project themselves as pious individuals, yet do what they do as elucidated by #63 and other fact-based Lotters. It is baffling to understand how they can harbor such irrational hatred for President Trump, especially, since Scripture makes clear that God selects heads of nations (Haggai 2:20-23; 1 Chronicles 14:2; Daniel 2:21, 4:17; Romans 13:1-2; Revelation 1:4-5). Do they not realize they are attempting to destroy someone God has chosen to lead this country at this point in time? Do they not fear coming before God for final judgment and possibly be asked to account for their wicked efforts to destroy President Trump? For the suffering to which his family has been subjected? To innocent people ensnared to project an aura of corruption by President Trump? Raising these questions is by no means an attempt to judge anyone because that is for God to do; however, Scripture’s teachings have been written for mankind to live accordingly. Oftentimes the behavior of public figures is baffling and exasperating. Thankfully, people of faith have heartfelt compassion for the victims of such cunning behavior.

I read only the posted words commencing the rant. Comey may well be trying to influence a future jury and/or, more likely, signal McCabe, Brennan, and Clapper that he (Comey) has no intention of copping a plea to a lesser charge in return for cooperating with Durham in ratting out Brennan, Clapper, and numerous others.

I don’t know if there’s anything to say in this post that wasn’t said in yesterday’s post. Second verse, same as the first: It suuuuuure looks like the Biden comeback in South Carolina is real. Which is the opposite of what I would have expected after Bernie ran the table in the first three states. In particular, his surprising blowout in Nevada had every indication of Democrats nationally beginning to warm up to him and accept him as a viable nominee. South Carolina would be the fourth and final domino to fall, and that would be that. Instead Biden’s gone from an average of 23.3 percent in SC

Last month, Juan Guaidó appeared in Washington in the role of political totem. Venezuela’s main opposition leader—the man who is recognized by that country’s National Assembly, millions of his fellow citizens, and several dozen foreign countries as the rightful president of Venezuela—was one of the special guests at the State of the Union address. President Donald Trump welcomed Guaidó as living evidence that his own administration was “standing up for freedom in our hemisphere” and had “reversed the failed policies of the previous administration”; he called Venezuela’s current leader, Nicolás Maduro, an illegitimate ruler whose “grip on tyranny will be smashed and broken.”

A number of pundits have recently argued that younger voters, especially those under 30, are less inclined to be bothered when they hear the word “socialism,” since they have no firsthand memory of the Cold War. To some extent, this must be true. Those who weren’t alive during socialism’s cruelest catastrophes — or even its many banal failures — will be less put off by the idea. Then again, if a presidential candidate were praising the excellent public transportation system of the Third Reich or going on about the some alleged benefit to American slavery, they would rightly be chased from the public square forever

Now, something called “Principles First” – ugh – is trying to shoehorn into CPAC’s spotlight with its “National Summit on Principled Conservatism” to be held in D.C. on February 29th, and for the low, low, almost certainly lib tech tycoon-subsidized price of $10, you can attend this sexless Never Trump Freaknik.

Stop rubbing your hands with glee over the opening turmoil in Democrats’ primary struggles centered on the current front-runner status of ancient Bernie Sanders. Yes, he’s older than anyone ever to occupy the White House, entering or exiting. Sure, he’s a loon. He’s done some crazy stuff in writing and speaking. You bet party elders are worried sick about nominating a socialist in a center-right nation. But it’s still quite early in their selection process. We’ll know a little more come Saturday night with the results of South Carolina’s primary, assuming that beautiful state doesn’t pull an Iowa or Florida with a flood of irregularities and hanging chads.

As clusters of novel coronavirus continue to pop up around the globe, the United States is grappling with how to prepare for an outbreak on American soil. Here's the latest on the developing situation. CDC officials confirmed Wednesday night that a patient in California contracted the coronavirus. The patient reportedly didn't have any travel history or exposure to another infected patient, which is the first known instance of such a case in the U.S., according to the CDC. "It’s also possible, however, that the patient may have been exposed to a returned traveler who was infected," an agency official said in a statement.

Saudi Arabia on Thursday said it will block foreigners from traveling to Mecca and the Kaaba, the cube-shaped structure at the center of the annual hajj pilgrimage, out of concern over the spread of the coronavirus. The travel limits also apply to the Prophet Muhammad’s mosque in Medina, according to the Associated Press. In addition, Saudi officials have halted entry to the kingdom by those with tourist visas from countries affected by coronavirus, the AP reported.

During the dog days of August way back in 2003, when even politics took a few days off, an upstart candidate began to make waves in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. He was little known outside of Vermont, where he began his political career by spearheading a grassroots campaign to stop a condominium development on Lake Champlain, site of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ third home (he won, a bike path went in instead). The upstart went on to become the state’s five-time governor, the longest-serving in its history. His name was Howard Dean, and suddenly, he was all the rage. While rival John Kerry was windsurfing

Bernie Sanders is, to put it gently, either terminally obtuse, mentally unbalanced, or dangerously dishonest. That Sanders could’ve visited the Soviet Union during the Cold War and, with all of the evidence before him, come back extolling the country’s systems, programs, and infrastructure, reveals either stupidity on a galactic scale, certifiable delusion, or a willingness to perpetuate the greatest lie in modern history. Sanders could’ve saved the time and expense of the trip had he instead talked to someone like Nikolai Kirsanow who, years before Sanders’s captivating trip to the Soviet Union, escaped from the NKVD. Unlike the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination,

WASHINGTON – A deeply divided Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the family of a Mexican teen shot and killed by a U.S. Border Patrol agent cannot seek damages because of the border that was between them. The justices ruled 5-4 that 15-year-old Sergio Adrian Hernández Guereca lacked constitutional protection against the use of excessive force because he was in Mexico. Had he been in Texas with Border Patrol agent Jesus Mesa, his family would have had a claim. Associate Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion and was joined by the court's four other conservatives. The four liberal justices dissented.

Over the weekend, when Democratic (Socialist) frontrunner Bernie Sanders was asked how much all of his ambitious plans would cost if they were implemented, he gave the worst possible answer.

I mean, you know, and-- and-- the price tag is-- it will be substantially less than letting the current system go. I think it's about $30 trillion.

Since the days of George Washington, presidents have wished they could make government employees do what they are told. Actually, that frustration is much older than America. Peter the Great once said, “People think I rule Russia, but a thousand bureaucrats rule Russia.” That’s one reason presidential candidates’ promises are often more difficult to deliver than they expected. It is a common comparison that “moving the bureaucracy is like trying to turn an aircraft carrier.” Actually, turning an aircraft carrier is far easier than turning a bureaucracy. (Snip)When Donald Trump ran for president in 2016, among other commitments, he vowed to repeal the unpopular Obama-era “Waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS) rule.

A seven-month deployment in Afghanistan shrouded in secrecy is a key piece of Pete Buttigieg’s pitch to voters in the 2020 presidential race, with the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor arguing that his status as a veteran and his time in a war zone give him foreign policy gravitas and first-hand military experience none of his Democratic primary rivals can claim. That supposed strength, however, ultimately could become a weakness in a potential general election match-up with President Trump and a Republican Party that is already eyeing ways to turn Mr. Buttigieg’s time as a Naval intelligence officer into a liability.

Should white people sing black spirituals? Western Michigan University is grappling with that question after a black student was triggered and suffered a social media meltdown when a predominantly white choir sang “Wade in the Water.” “So apparently Western Michigan University thinks it’s ok for WHITE peoples to sing negro spirituals while the instructor talking bout ‘these songs don’t belong to one race.’ They sure as hell DO,” WMU music major Shaylee Faught wrote on a social media now seen by more than 1 million people. Faught got triggered after the choir’s black conductor reportedly told the audience that the selections were “American songs” performed “for everyone” and “have no ethnicity.”

A number of pundits have recently argued that younger voters, especially those under 30, are less inclined to be bothered when they hear the word “socialism,” since they have no firsthand memory of the Cold War. To some extent, this must be true. Those who weren’t alive during socialism’s cruelest catastrophes — or even its many banal failures — will be less put off by the idea. Then again, if a presidential candidate were praising the excellent public transportation system of the Third Reich or going on about the some alleged benefit to American slavery, they would rightly be chased from the public square forever

Harvey Weinstein is “in disbelief,” but “not delusional,” about his conviction, as he remains under care at Bellevue Hospital before being transferred to Rikers Island, where he’ll be put behind bars. “He’s still in disbelief of the charges he was convicted of. He’s very consistent about his innocence,” one of Weinstein’s attorneys, Arthur Aidala, told Variety over the phone late Wednesday night. Weinstein was convicted Monday on two felony charges: criminal sex act in the first-degree for assaulting Miriam Haley by forcible oral sex in 2006, and rape in the third-degree for raping Jessica Mann in a New York City hotel room in 2013.
Indigenous Peoples’ Day to replace Christopher

Chicago Public Schools will no longer observe Columbus Day. The Board of Education voted to change the name to Indigenous Peoples’ Day as other cities and school districts have done. The board’s vote on the issue was 5-2. The school holiday will be on Oct. 12 this year. CPS is working to develop new curriculum to more accurately tell the history of Native American cultures. The holiday has been controversial because the day has been used to commemorate Italian explorer Christopher Columbus who claimed to have discovered America in 1492. The area was already populated by indigenous people and some have argued that Columbus’ actions led to their genocide.

The U.S. military is about to experience another first: Barring injury in the next few weeks, an enlisted soldier is about to become the first female Green Beret in Army history. That comes seven years after the Pentagon lifted its longtime ban on women serving in combat roles. As with all special operators, the military does not release names or identification. But the woman is expected to graduate soon from the rugged, roughly year-long qualification course and become a Special Forces engineer sergeant. Another woman is also making her way through the demanding yearlong course. The length of the course depends on the operator’s specialty

The Democrats’ poster girl for America-hating could swing Minnesota’s 10 electoral votes to President Trump in November.

Collins, who has served as the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee but is leaving the role after announcing a Senate campaign, described at CPAC what he believes will come out of Durham’s probe. “This is not going to be a Mueller report; there won’t be a report,” Collins told Fox News, noting that Durham and his team have kept very “quiet” about their work. “When he’s ready to charge people, he’ll charge people.” He added: “And that’s when we’ll know.”

Patricia Arquette felt it worthy of the #RESIST movement to summon her inner Bill Maher and implore followers to tank the U.S. economy. How? She told her followers to not buy anything on March 2nd. Really. Arquette took to Instagram to post what appears to be a screenshot of a Feb. 15 tweet that read: “A REMINDER: please contact everyone you know. On Monday, March 2nd, we’re going to have an Economic Shutdown.”
