Beto O’Rourke Faces New Political Perils
As Launch of Fall Campaign Begins
Texas Monthly, by R. G. Ratcliffe and Carlos Sanchez    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/2/2018 6:57:04 AM     Post Reply
The political momentum seems to be blowing in the direction of Beto O’Rourke. The Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate had a video go viral of him defending NFL players’ right to take a knee during the national anthem, prompting an appearance next week on Ellen DeGeneres’s TV show. (Snip)It’s a world that O’Rourke has seamlessly navigated so far not because of any stroke of brilliance, said one Democratic operative, but because of dumb luck. “This campaign is not prepared to fight a traditional campaign,” said one member of O’Rourke’s campaign who asked that his name not be used

The Mueller investigation continues without hitting paydirt and further diminishing the reputation of the special counsel and Clintonite team. I expect the president to shortly (maybe even this week) declassify the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant on Carter Page. This warrant provided the means to spy on the president and his campaign. We learned this week that the warrant, which triggered this partisan witch hunt, was signed by the FISC (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court) without any hearing whatsoever. We already know that it was based on lies

Law enforcement still loves Jeff Sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions withstood another week of public attacks from President Trump, but there´s one group that´s still standing by him: law enforcement. From day one, Sessions said he intended uphold the law and back those charged with that same duty. "This is a new era. This is the Trump era," Sessions declared from the U.S.-Mexico border in April 2017. For several months now, Trump has publicly flogged Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation, but Sessions is still supported by law enforcement officials around the country, whatever else Trump thinks of him.



The Senate’s Unremembered Ex-POW

His path to distinguished service in the United States Senate led through the Naval Academy, aerial combat over hostile territory, and long years of confinement, beatings, and torture in the Hanoi Hilton. He was a man worth remembering. No, his name was not John McCain. Six years before McCain’s election to the Senate, Alabama voters sent retired Rear Admiral Jeremiah Denton to Washington’s upper chamber. Both the parallels and the divergences in Denton and McCain’s lives tell something about the last few decades of our political history.

Another Watergate - But John
Brennan Should be the Target

Recent events — such as the convictions of two former Trump aides, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, following Trump’s retributive withdrawal of former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance — have some pundits talking excitedly about new Watergate proceedings aimed at the White House. But the only deserved excitement should be felt by Brennan, the deceitful quarterback of the Russian Collusion team, as the current chaos helps to run out the clock on any investigation and possible indictment of himself. As Watergate is inevitably compared to the present situation, we should recall what the scandal was and what

The dust hasn’t even settled yet, but many of the powerful men accused of sexual misconduct against women in the #MeToo movement are already creeping out of the woodwork in desperate bids to make a comeback. And shame on us for letting them. The latest is comedian Louis C.K., who cracked jokes to an adoring crowd at a New York City comedy club Sunday night. Ex-U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said last month he hasn’t ruled out a political comeback. Fallen “Today” show host Matt Lauer recently assured some doting female fans he’d “be back on TV.”

Meet New York City’s pickiest panhandler. Ron Clarke, 51, regularly positions himself in front of Union Market, the snooty Park Slope grocery spot that a local realtor nicknamed “Millionaire Market.” The discerning Clarke, often seen holding a cup full of coins at the chain’s Seventh Avenue outpost, would not disagree. Last Tuesday morning, shortly after blowing part of a previous day’s proceeds on a pair of lottery tickets (“I buy them once in a blue moon,” Clarke insisted), he told The Post, “By standing in front of Union Market, I get nice groceries.”



And the Paul Wellstone
Memorial Award Goes To...

I don’t mean to sound self-centered, but I hope that at my funeral, whoever delivers the eulogy will talk about me, and not their or my political enemies. It’s not much to ask, but frankly, I’d like to believe there’s more to me than the people I’ve had feuds with. Not since the Paul Wellstone funeral have I been so disgusted at the gross politicization of a memorial service. Wellstone, you might remember, was the U.S. senator who died in a plane crash in 2002 less than two weeks before the midterm elections.

Test your knowledge of current events by answering this question: Which organization remains stuck in deep cover-up mode? A) The FBI B) The Roman Catholic Church C) Both of the above D) Neither of the above If you get your news only from The New York Times, you believe the correct answer is D, neither of the above. Other people know the correct answer is C because they see the leaders of both organizations acting as if the public can’t handle the truth.It is not my intent to suggest the FBI and the Vatican are in all ways comparable.

Media pounce on conservatives
and weaponize bias against Trump
Fox News, by Dan Gainor    Original Article

Anti-Trump news organizations continued to attack the president this past week on many fronts, including for what CNN Senior Political Analyst John Avlon called “a real culture of corruption.” In reality, Avlon should have been describing the state of journalism. CNN, that stalwart of James Earl Jones voiceovers, has no room to point fingers. It got caught believing another phony story about President Trump and is too stubborn and woke to admit it. (Sort of like when three CNN investigative journalists had to resign in 2017, except then the network admitted they were wrong.) Meanwhile, NBC is facing allegations

A purported member of the MS-13 gang broke into the bedroom of a sleeping 11-year-old Brooklyn girl and raped her in her bed, cops said Saturday as the suspect was taken into custody. The horrific crime happened at 11:30 p.m. Wednes­day in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, officials said. The suspect — identified by police sources as El Salvadoran immigrant Julio Cesar Ayala, 18, who lives nearby — had allegedly climbed onto the roof of the girl’s apartment building. He then somehow shoved aside the girl’s window air conditioner on the second floor and crawled inside through the opening, police sources said.

How many layers removed can a source be before the entire report starts to look absurd? The Associated Press seems to have pushed the limits in an article published Friday morning. Here’s the lede: “A senior Justice Department lawyer says a former British spy told him at a breakfast meeting two years ago that Russian intelligence believed it had Donald Trump “over a barrel,” according to multiple people familiar with the encounter.” So, sources say a DOJ lawyer said a former British spy told him that Russian intelligence told him it had the president “over a barrel” during the 2016

President Trump has appointed Kiron Skinner, a well-known conservative African American scholar, as the State Department’s director of policy planning, and she is promising to check egos and carry out the president’s “America First” agenda. “To counter 21st century threats and take advantage of unfolding opportunities, I will bring together a no-nonsense team of career diplomats, political appointees, scholars, and analysts who want to leave egos and outworn doctrines at the door,” she said in a statement to Breitbart News. “In the cauldron of Washington politics this may sound naïve, but it must be done to create a 21st century

John McCain was eulogized today at a memorial in Washington DC. The funeral service was also an opportunity for the Washington DC elites to rip and trash the sitting president — who was told not to come by John McCain. Speaker after speaker, from Meghan McCain, to George W. Bush, to Barack Obama took turns to rip President Trump in words of anger. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were in attendance.

Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has some advice for Democrat Florida gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum: Suck it up, sunshine. “If Florida candidate for gov Andrew Gillum is offended by reference to the word ‘monkey’ then he’s not TOUGH enough and doesn’t have the metal to be governor of Florida,” he bluntly wrote on Twitter Friday evening, referencing the ongoing “monkey this up” non-scandal scandal. “Politics is a contact sport,” he added. “GUY IS A WIMP. Look at what @realDonaldTrump has to endure from the left everyday.” (Tweet) Clarke’s tweet referenced all the whiny hoopla that broke out this week

Any aspiring farmer would envy Nick Serfontein. The Bonsmara cattle he rears on 15,000 acres of pasture in the high plains of South Africa’s Free State province are fat and sleek, prize-winning specimens of arguably Africa’s finest beef-producing breed. With state-of-the-art feedlots, a modern abattoir and lucrative retail outlets, the Sernick Group he heads is one of Free State’s most successful agricultural ventures. But Mr Serfontein is also a member of South Africa’s privileged white minority, who could — if certain politicians get their way — lose everything he has built up for years and receive nothing in return.

Tallahassee, Fla. — Andrew Gillum, who engineered a surprising upset victory in Florida´s Democratic primary this week, is picking up endorsements, money and plenty of national attention in the aftermath of his win. But as the Tallahassee mayor mounts his bid to become Florida´s first black governor, he is already coming under swift attack from Republican opponents who are trying to use a slow-moving corruption investigation into Tallahassee city government to portray Gillum as untrustworthy.

Stone said Mueller is being merciless in his dogged pursuit of a scalp for Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The Chicago Police Department is putting an extra 1,400 officers on the streets to try to reduce the number of shootings over the Labor Day weekend. The deployment is part of a strategy the department employs over the three warm weather holiday weekends of Memorial Day, July 4 and Labor Day when the number of violent crimes typically increases. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that last year over the same holiday weekend, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson deployed an additional 1,300 officers. The weekend ended with seven people killed in shootings and another 35 wounded. (Photos/Video) Johnson had

Barack Obama said being asked to speak at John McCain´s funeral was a ´precious and singular honor´, but joked he had worked out why he and Bush - his political opponents - had been asked. ´What a better way to get a last laugh than to get George and I to say nice things about him to a national audience,´ he said, lightening an otherwise emotional tribute. Obama and McCain were both in the race to become President in 2008, and though the democratic candidate won, the pair made headlines for how quickly they sat down after the election to
