According to media reports this week, a number of FBI agents are hoping to get subpoenaed in the Russia probe so they can expose corruption at the top of the Bureau. In other words, guys on the ground are ready to talk about decisions made by the suits in Washington D.C. Many agents in the FBI want Congress to subpoena them so they can reveal problems caused by former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, three people in direct contact with active field agents tell TheDC. “There are agents all over this country who love the bureau

Democrats and the media are losing the culture war

It must be written somewhere that in the age of Trump, Democrats and the national media are required to stake out thoroughly stupid positions in the culture wars. Abstaining isn’t an option. The New York Times ran three pieces this week opposing the NFL’s new policy requiring players to stand for the national anthem during games, or remain in the locker room if they won’t. The Times’ liberal columnist David Leonhardt called the rule “unpatriotic” because it “reject[s] a basic American value.” (Making a statement about your special interest during a short patriotic song, you see, is exactly what the Founding Fathers

Clinton Bashes ‘Troubling’
Electoral College as ‘Odd System’

Hillary Clinton continued to attack the Electoral College system used to elect U.S. presidents on Friday, calling it an "odd system" and contrary to the idea of "one person, one vote." "I know this is another really obvious thing to say. Vote in every election, not just presidential elections," Clinton said at Harvard University, in a clip flagged by NTK Network. "You know, it is maddening because one of the panelists said we get the government that we vote for. Now, we have this odd system with the Electoral College." Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the popular vote by nearly three million

Did the news media, led by Walter
Cronkite, lose the war in Vietnam?
Washington Post, by Joel Achenbach    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/26/2018 4:41:00 AM     Post Reply
Until 1968, Walter Cronkite believed what his government told him about the Vietnam War. He was an old-school journalist, a patriot, a man who came of age covering World War II as a wire-service reporter and then taking over as the anchor of “The CBS Evening News” at the height of the Cold War. Like most journalists of his generation, he embraced the fight against communism and understood why the United States had intervened in the war raging in Vietnam. When he’d visited Vietnam on a reporting trip early in the war, he’d been annoyed by the attitude of the young

Disastrous Cuban sugar harvest may

Rainfall has shuttered all but a few of Cuba’s 54 sugar mills, with output down nearly 40 percent to the lowest level in more than a century, which could force the island to import, official media and industry sources say. While inclement weather played a big role in this season’s disastrous performance, local experts and officials also blamed inadequate reforms and decapitalization, reflecting more broadly the socialist country’s struggle to update its economy. The Communist Party has already tasked President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who replaced Raul Castro last month, with carrying out a series of reforms aimed at making the state-dominated

Weinstein’s perp walk was a sham –

Harvey Weinstein is out on bail. Incredible. The allowances made at Friday morning’s arraignment — Weinstein turning himself in looking clean and bookish, rather than be taken into custody in a 4 a.m. bust — may set the tone for the entire trial. No detail is too small, as the press, prosecutors and Weinstein himself, the ultimate showman, knows. It’s why police sources made sure to point out that he needed extended handcuffs because he was too fat for regular ones. It’s why Weinstein toted two books into the police precinct as if leisurely overseeing some busywork. It’s why one of those

NFL players, leave your

The idea that the NFL is only implementing its new national anthem policy because of falling ratings and public pressure is exactly how businesses work. No business exists to employ people; they exist to make as much money as possible. Hemorrhaging fans, or customers, is the quickest path to failure, so it’s smart for the NFL to do all it can to stop the swirling public relations disaster its players created. Fining teams whose players kneel during the anthem isn’t “punishing dissent,” it’s the people who sign the front of the players’ sizable checks exerting the authority inherent in any

Ireland overwhelmingly votes to
repeal abortion ban, exit polls project
ABC News, by Fergal Gallagher and Ben Gittleson    Original Article

Two major exit polls project that Irish voters have voted to repeal the country´s Eighth Amendment, passed by voters in 1983, which effectively bans abortions in the island nation. One poll, by The Irish Times, projected 68 percent in favor of repealing. Another, by RTE, showed a similar projection of 69.4 percent in favor. The results followed a contentious and emotional campaign in a deeply Catholic nation, home to one of the world´s strictest abortion bans. Seeking or providing an abortion in Ireland was a criminal offense that carries up to 14 years behind bars. As a result, thousands of Irish women

The president of the University of Southern California (USC) has agreed to step down amid a widely damaging sex scandal involving a university gynecologist accused of decades of sexual misconduct, the school’s board of trustees said Friday. A letter from the board to the USC community did not specify when C.L. Max Nikias, 65, would leave his post. "President Nikias and the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees have agreed to begin an orderly transition and commence the process of selecting a new president," Rick J.

A day after her great-great uncle Jack Johnson was pardoned, Linda Haywood, returned to his gravesite Friday with her daughter and the Rev. Jesse Jackson to mark the end of a decades-long journey to clear the legendary boxer’s name. “I know and believe in my heart that you are proud of me,” Haywood said looking at Johnson’s grave marker at Graceland Cemetery on the North Side. “Your place in history gets to be restored.

While speaking to a tech conference this week in Las Vegas President Obamarepeated a claim he and many members of the media have made since his presidency came to an end. “I didn’t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn’t be something you brag about,” Obama said. “But actually,” he said, “if you look at the history of the modern presidency, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. It’s a big deal.” The notion is obviously absurd on the face of it, for anyone who paid unbiased attention over the eight years of

Since we first covered the Climategate Files here at PJ Media in 2009, the controversy has continued, but with some interesting changes. For example, the term "global warming" has pretty universally been replaced with the term "climate change." The language has changed, and the facts have changed. There are lots of new facts, and a whole lot of them dispute the climate dogma. Of course, the more the climate dogma is disputed, the more the climate change cultists resist. On the other hand, we´ve seen a lot more people coming out as thinking maybe, just maybe, there are some points of

New Day‘s Chris Cuomo is making the big move to primetime, going up against the likes of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Fox’s Sean Hannity in CNN’s 9 P.M. slot. The move is an exciting one for Cuomo, who said that “the fight is at night” and he’s ready to “get after it.” But it also comes with deep sadness. While saying goodbye to co-host Alisyn Camerota and the rest of the team at New Day on his last episode Thursday, Cuomo got teary. After calling Camerota “a gift” to the morning show, he turned to his family, who Camerota had

Liberals will be shocked to hear this. Yes, I finally agree. You’ve won over Wayne Root with evidence and common sense. It’s time to impeach the president. However, it’s not President Trump I’m talking about. It’s time to impeach former President Barack Obama. And of course, prosecute him too. Many are starting to come to this conclusion. Tom Fitton, the legal genius behind Judicial Watch (the number one government watchdog in America), has come to the same conclusion. Fitton said this week that amidst a climate of impeachment fervor, the actual evidence points to Obama’s actions warranting impeachment far more than

Keith Olbermann is expanding his role at ESPN — but it was nearly even bigger. The largest aspect of Olbermann’s expanded role with ESPN is that he will co-host around 20 “SportsCenter” 11 p.m. shows. Olbermann’s rise to national prominence came when he and his partner, Dan Patrick, hosted the program they dubbed “The Big Show.” Sources said ESPN considered offering Olbermann the full-time 6 p.m. “SportsCenter” show, but ultimately decided against it for a variety of reasons, including logistics, as the show will continue in Bristol and Olbermann lives in New York. The 6 p.m. show ultimately went to

Florida-based supermarket chain Publix announced Friday that corporate-backed political contributions will be suspended “as we reevaluate our giving processes” – an announcement that came shortly before Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg’s “die-in” protest. In response to the revelation earlier this month that Publix donated $670,000 to Florida GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, Hogg organized the “die-in” protest to occur at a Publix in Coral Springs on Friday where participants were instructed to lie down in the store for 12 minutes. Shortly before the protest was set to begin at 4 p.m., Publix issued a statement regarding the suspension of corporate-funded

This was after he initially denied the Intelligence Community was spying on Donald Trump. Clapper told CNN it was a good thing if the FBI had someone “observing” the Trump’s campaigns interaction with the Russians because the “Russians posed a threat to the very basis of our political system.” (Snip) Now this… Clapper is continuing to change his story. Today he told Axios the deep state spying on Trump was actually “Benign version of information gathering.” Via Zero Hedge:

President Donald Trump signed a series of executive orders on Friday that will expedite the process of terminating “poor performing” federal government employees. The new rules will “require all federal employees to devote at least 75 percent of their work hours for agency purposes, senior administration officials said. The administration estimates that these actions could save taxpayers at least $100 million a year, BuzzFeed reports. “These executive orders make it easier for agencies to remove poor performing employees and ensure that taxpayer dollars are more efficiently used,” Andrew Bremberg, the White House’s director of the domestic policy, told reporters.

President Trump signed three executive orders Friday containing sweeping reforms that weaken protections for federal workers and eliminate perks for the unions that represent them. Under the new executive orders, estimated to save at least $100 million a year, unions will be charged rent for federal office space and will not be reimbursed for travel expenses or for hours spent appealing worker firings. Going forward, federal workers must spend 75 percent of their time on government work -- some currently spend none -- and agencies must publicly post union contracts in an online repository.

The FBI Spied for LBJ’s Campaign

Is it unthinkable that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would spy on a presidential campaign for political purposes? I can personally attest that it has happened before—during Barry Goldwater’s 1964 campaign. Every poll agreed that President Lyndon B. Johnson would easily win the election against the conservative Sen. Goldwater of Arizona. But LBJ wanted a landslide so he could implement his Great Society vision without resistance and go down in history as one of America’s greatest presidents. (Snip) Thus was born Johnson’s “Anti-Campaign” to smear Goldwater’s candidacy. The operation was run from the second floor of the West Wing by
