Shaffer: Trump Wiretap Case
´Worse Than Watergate´
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/26/2017 10:59:47 AM     Post Reply
Former CIA officer Col. Tony Shaffer said the basics of President Trump´s claim to have been "wiretapped" are likely true, and that the incident is "worse than Watergate." Noting it has been exactly two weeks since Trump tweeted that President Obama wiretapped his namesake tower, Shaffer said the "basic fundamental idea and claim is true." (Snip) Shaffer said that due to the simplicity required to "mask" an American´s name during an incidental wiretap, that the leak of Gen. Michael Flynn´s name was "accidental on purpose." "Clearly they were after gossip because it was political," Shaffer said, maintaining that the alleged

I have a friend who is a retired public school teacher. She is very likeable and in some areas an independent thinker. One day in conversation she brought up the terrible poverty and near-anarchy that prevails just on the other side of America’s southern border. It quickly became clear that she believed America was at fault, that America’s prosperity was somehow the cause of Mexico’s problems. When I asked her what the solution might be, she replied without hesitation that we should get rid of that border, and not stop there but get rid of all borders. Then, she said,

German police warned Anis Amri was

before Berlin Christmas market massacre

Police in Germany knew Anis Amri was planning a suicide attack nine months before he drove a lorry into a packed Christmas market in Berlin last December, killing 12 people, it has emerged. The German equivalent of CID warned in a confidential memo to regional authorities last March, that it has intercepted communications indicating Amri was planning a suicide attack, and recommended he be deported. But the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia ruled that an order to expel him was not legally enforcable. The new disclosures will add to questions over why Amri was allowed to remain in Germany



Trump: Democrats ‘Smiling’ Because
Freedom Caucus ‘Saved Planned

Before the American Health Care Act was pulled from the House floor on Friday, President Trump took to Twitter to call out the House Freedom Caucus specifically: (Snip) The caucus did oppose the AHCA, but there were Republicans outside that group who came out against the bill as well. This morning on Twitter, Trump, while not outright attacking the Freedom Caucus, this time said that Democrats are “smiling” because of their actions: Follow Donald J.

High-school principal accused of keeping

A Queens public high-school principal excluded 500 Catholic-school kids from a list of 4,000 students applying to get into his school, raising cries from furious parents of foul play. “It was almost like they knew who would be accepted,” said Middle Village resident Jimmy Guarneri, 47, of the lottery system that was supposed to fairly choose students to get into popular Maspeth High School. “We’re very angry.” After being rejected by Maspeth, Guarneri’s son was accepted at a Catholic high school, but got only a partial scholarship.

Stunning Evidence that the Left
Has Won its War on White Males

There is a sickness in American society, fanned by the propaganda campaigns of the left, and it is killing people. White males, in large numbers, are simply losing their will to live, and as a result, they are dying so prematurely and in such large numbers that a startling demographic gap has emerged. It is not just the “opioid epidemic” that is killing off white working class males, it is a spiritual crisis, and Princeton economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton have the numbers to sustain this conclusion.

Two months out of office, Barack Obama
is having a post-presidency like no other

The first cocktail party at Barack Obama’s new office last month was certainly more casual than any he had hosted in recent years. The wine bore a random assortment of labels, as if assembled potluck-style. The self-serve appetizers were set out in the narrow hallway. The host, tieless, eschewed formal remarks, as a few dozen of his old administration officials — Joe Biden and former chief of staff Denis McDonough, as well as more junior ones — mingled in a minimalist wood-paneled suite that could be mistaken for a boutique law firm. “It was a bit of a shock to



Rand Paul takes victory
lap on GOP health bill

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) quickly declared victory on Friday, praising conservatives for "standing up against ObamaCare Lite.” “I applaud House conservatives for keeping their word to the American people,” (Snip)Paul and other House conservatives have offered an alternative repeal bill that mirrors 2015 legislation cleared by Congress but vetoed by then-President Barack Obama. The bill would effectively separate repeal and replace into two separate pieces of legislation, a move that would likely draw pushback from a coalition of moderate lawmakers. GOP lawmakers haven´t signaled that they are preparing to take up another healthcare bill, instead telling reporters that they didn´t have a

One person has died and multiple victims have been shot after two gunmen opened fire on revelers inside of a Cincinnati nightclub. Authorities are searching for the two shooters who fled the scene after the incident that happened around 1am at the Cameo Club on Kellogg Avenue in the city. At least 15 people were taken to nearby hospitals after being struck by stray gunfire inside the venue. Detectives described a ´chaotic´ and ´horrific´ crime scene with hundreds of partygoers fleeing for their lives after the shooting began. (Video/Photos) Some of the victims are thought to have life-threatening injuries and

Matryoshkas are Russian nesting dolls. Inside each doll are several others smaller but identically shaped characters until you get to the smallest one inside. Studying what we have learned of the timeline -- and we still don’t have the entire story -- we see Wikileaks, the smallest, at the core, and Obama as the largest piece in what is the most historically outrageous misuse of the people and institutions of government for partisan advantage.

Republicans Move to Strengthen Protections
for Interstate Travel by Gun Owners
Washington Free Beacon, by Stephen Gutowski    Original Article

Senator Orrin Hatch (R., Utah) introduced a bill to the Senate on March 14 that would institute new protections for gun owners who travel across state lines with their firearms. The Lawful Interstate Transportation of Firearms Act, also introduced by Rep. Morgan Griffith (R., Va.) to the House of Representatives in January, would expand and clarify the interstate firearm transportation rules instituted under the Firearms Owners´ Protection Act of 1986. Under that law, Americans are allowed to transport firearms from one state where they can legally possess them to another so long as certain requirements are met, such as the

Shakespeare’s play Othello showcases the most vile character in all of drama -- a man often referred to as “honest Iago.” He is especially horrifying because he is charming, efficient, and intelligent, but mostly because he often breaks the fourth wall, looks the audience right in the eye, and tells us what his next diabolical move will be. We’re in on it whether we want to be or not. He creates chaos just because he can and we are powerless to stop him. Watching the news these days feels much like watching Othello.

Vice President Pence tried Saturday to deliver a pep-talk to Americans after fellow Republicans’ failed effort to overhaul ObamaCare -- admitting that members are “back to the drawing board” but vowing that President Trump will “keep fighting.” Pence spoke in the aftermath of House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday cancelling the final vote for the ObamaCare replacement bill, upon concluding he didn’t have enough votes despite the chamber’s GOP majority. Republicans Ryan and Trump after announcing the cancellation, sounded as if efforts to fulfill campaign promises to repeal and replace the 2010 health care law were essentially finished. Ryan publicly said Americans would

Out here in flyover country, we recently had some fires that devastated parts of Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Texas. You may not have heard about them, because no movie stars’ houses were destroyed - just those of hard working farmers and ranchers who work tirelessly every day to put food on your table. The fires ravished nearly everything in their paths over an area of 1300 square miles in Oklahoma and Kansas alone. That’s a land mass 100 square miles more than the size of Rhode Island. For those of you who’ve never been to Rhode Island, imagine a swath

In a dastardly deed for which they should be continually shamed, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and fellow Republicans in the U.S. Senate last year refused to give a hearing, much less a vote, to President Obama’s immensely qualified choice for the Supreme Court. In political terms, their cynical power play against Merrick Garland paid off. That should infuriate all Americans who care about the nation’s ability to rise above narrow partisan animus . But the grave offense does not justify Democrats putting payback before the national interest. It does not justify blocking the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill a seat

Don’t cry for Chelsea

Meet America’s newest victim — Chelsea Clinton. Nobody knows the troubles she’s seen. Chelsea’s got a right to sing the blues. Last week, in the Los Angeles Times, someone named Ann Friedman laid out the former First Spawn’s credentials as a modern Democrat in good standing. Chelsea is oppressed, as opposed to, say, another first daughter with blond hair. “Chelsea,” Friedman wrote, “like her mother, never gets a break — unlike Ivanka and her father.” You don’t say. Now that I think about it, it really must be arduous being Chelsea Clinton. This L.A. Times op-ed appeared a day after it was reported that

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool Huma Abedin four times, and she’ll still take you back. After years of public humiliation by her sext-a-holic husband, Anthony Weiner, 40-year-old Abedin finally separated from the former congressman in August, one day after The Post reported that he had sent yet another explicit photo to a woman — this one showing his toddler son asleep beside him. But sources tell The Post that Hillary Clinton’s righthand woman is now giving the marriage another try. “Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony,” said a source close to the Abedin family. “He has been

Every week it seems more and more as if San Francisco doesn’t really want to be part of the United States anymore. Perhaps that Calexit thing needs a second look… Out in the City by the Bay, activists are very concerned that Donald Trump will be “George W. Bush on steroids” when it comes to ICE officers locating and deporting illegal aliens. (The fact that Barack Obama left Bush in the dust on that front seems to be lost on them.) But fear not, campers. The Social Justice Warriors are prepared to fight back and are training thousands of “expert witnesses”

Freedom Caucus drives dagger into

It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up

Donald Trump crowed for months he would strike a "terrific" deal on health care. His ambitions ended in a brief phone call Friday afternoon, in which Speaker Paul Ryan told him the truth: He was nowhere close. The businessman president, who sold himself to tens of millions of disillusioned voters last year as the only outsider who could tame a broken capital, ended his first confrontation with lawmakers overmatched, outmaneuvered and ultimately empty-handed. “We learned a lot about some very arcane rules,” Trump said in the Oval Office soon after the defeat of his effort to undo President Obama’s

President Donald Trump, who has been widely criticized for only speaking with right-wing news outlets, called the Washington Post and the New York Times first on Friday to talk about the House Republicans health care bill. House Republicans pulled the Obamacare repeal bill on Friday after Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) told Trump they did not have enough votes to pass the bill. CNN Reporter Dylan Byers tweeted that Trump, "who says you can´t trust media," called the Washington Post and the New York Times first to discuss pulling the American Health Care Act.

President Trump and his advisers ought to study the collapse of the American Health Care Act. It´s a case study in how Beltway institutions—the so-called Swamp Trump pledged to drain—can herd a president and his party toward unpopular legislation and political defeat. Begin with this question: Why the rush to repeal and replace Obamacare? Yes, repealing the law has been a Republican priority since 2010. But Democrats had spent decades laying the groundwork for universal health care before finding themselves in control of the government in 2009. And even then, it took a year for the Affordable Care Act to

WASHINGTON — Dear Donald, We’ve known each other a long time, so I think I can be blunt. You know how you said at campaign rallies that you did not like being identified as a politician? Don’t worry. No one will ever mistake you for a politician. After this past week, they won’t even mistake you for a top-notch negotiator. I was born here. The first image in my memory bank is the Capitol, all lit up at night. And my primary observation about Washington is this: Unless you’re careful, you end up turning into what you started out scorning.
