SCOTUS green-lights Menendez corruption trial
Hot Air, by Ed Morrissey

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/20/2017 12:29:05 PM

The Supreme Court has dashed Robert Menendez’ last hope to prevent the first trial of a sitting US Senator for corruption since Ted Stevens in 2008 (which was posthumously vacated). The top court refused to take the appeal of a Third District appellate ruling that refused to overturn Menendez’ April 2015 indictment on the basis of constitutional privilege under the Speech or Debate Clause. That leaves the door open to a trial in the fall, just as the three-term incumbent ramps up an expected re-election campaign in the midterms: The Supreme Court has rejected Sen. Bob Menendez’s attempt to throw out

´Not many members get a seven figure help´ - BALONEY! I think many constituent donors expect and receive financial assistance from their representatives and 7-figure financial benefits are probably on par for the quid pro quo.

If you were to remove all of the corruption in D.C., the place would be a ghost town.

Well, it´s a start at least. What about the many other corruption trails - starting with Obie, Bite Me, Lurch, valjar, riceroni, Holdie, Reidie, Miss Uneven eyelids, Chuckie, and last but, not least Billary.

He has two choices - resign his seat and plea and got to trial and take out as many people as he possibly can who are guilty of doing the same thing.

I suspect he plans a plea deal and will go to prison.

I didn´t know that. I´m calling my senators right now.

Roger Ailes’ Exit, Stage Right
American Spectator, by R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/24/2017 5:14:51 AM     Post Reply
Washington- A major threat to the predominance of the Kultursmog in these United States passed away last week, but he had succeeded in what he set out to do, namely to damage the left in America beyond any hope of recovery. Not many people recognize this, but it is nonetheless true. Possibly it will take years before this realization becomes apparent to all, but for now we discerning minds understand what has happened. Broadcasting will never be the same after Roger Ailes, the begetter of Fox News on cable, died last week. He alone made it happen. He challenged the Kultursmog.

Trump’s Berating of Comey
for the Consumption of Our Enemies
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/20/2017 1:50:48 PM     Post Reply
I admit to being slack-jawed over the New York Times report that President Trump smeared former FBI director James Comey in a conversation with representatives of Russia’s murderous, anti-American regime. The account, based on notes taken at the meeting and leaked to the Times, has implicitly been confirmed in a near-equally repugnant statement by the White House press secretary. Inexplicably, Trump chose to host Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and ambassador Sergey Kislyak the day after he fired Comey in a maze of conflicting explanations (when none, by the way, was required). Naturally, this further fueled the Trump-Russia conspiracy narrative.

President Donald Trump gets warm greeting from
Saudi Arabian king at start of first foreign trip
New York Daily News, by Dan Gunderman    Original Article

At around 3 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, President Donald Trump landed in Saudi Arabia on his first foreign trip—a five-stop progress through the Middle East, Italy and Belgium. The aircraft touched down at about 10 a.m. local time. Emerging from Air Force One, Trump and First Lady Melania descended the stairs to a wide red carpet. Saudi Arabian King Salman, 81, greeted Trump at the base of the stairs, extending his hand toward the U.S. president. Some pundits questioned whether Salman would shake Trump´s hand or even brave the sweltering heat to walk out onto the runway, citing his older age.

As Leaks Pile Up, It’s Evident Trump
Is Under Attack From His Own Staff
Daily Caller, by Alex Pfeiffer    Original Article

It’s coming from inside the house. Throughout Trump’s presidency and increasingly in the past few weeks, leaks from staff members to the press are undermining the president. The New York Times reported Friday exact details of Trump’s meeting last week with Russian officials. The report cited a document read to them by an “American official,” which summarized the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to the report. The president then added, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” The White House did not dispute this account. Shortly

Mueller Must Investigate
Everything or It´s Worthless
PJ Media, by Roger L.Simon    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 5/20/2017 4:27:36 AM     Post Reply
Robert Mueller´s investigation will be incomplete if he does not deal with and resolve the competing narratives about what has transpired. Narrative one is that Donald Trump and/or one or several of his entourage colluded in some manner with the Russians over election 2016. Narrative two is that Democrats and much of the media have not accepted the results of the election and are smearing Trump to drive him from office or seriously wound him to the degree that he will accomplish nothing. Although it is possible there is an element of truth in both narratives, it is more likely that

The Special Counsel Who Just
Might Save Trump´s Presidency
Bloomberg, by Eli Lake    Original Article

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein just did Donald Trump a favor. It may not look like that from the perspective of the president. His Twitter feed is filled with eruptions about the fraudulence of the Russia investigation. But by appointing the former FBI director Robert Mueller to investigate the matter, Rosenstein has quieted a crisis that was consuming Trump´s presidency. The storm has been gathering for more than a week. It started when Trump impetuously fired the FBI director, James Comey, claiming at first that he did so on the advice of Rosenstein. Then the president changed his story and

Now anything goes. All restraints are loosened, all self-discipline trashed. There’s no cure or even treatment for Trump Derangement Syndrome, a disease as wild and as swiftly lethal as anything imported from the Ebola River valley of the dark continent. The rules and taboos that once guided even the sleaziest excuse for a newspaper no longer apply. Destroying Donald Trump is all that matters in the newsrooms of the mainstream media, so called, and by any means necessary. Rarely have so many hysterics contributed so much of the national conversation. A columnist in The New York Times, ground zero in the epidemic

Climate change” and “child marriage” are “interconnected” issues, said Chelsea Clinton on Monday. Participating in a left-wing discussion panel framed as a meeting for “social justice,” she was introduced as an “activist, thought leader, and change agent.” Using "climate change" as a euphemism for the narrative of anthropogenic global warming, Clinton framed the burning of fossil fuels as exacerbating other perceived social and political issues (emphasis added): “[We] carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart. Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, women’s health, child marriage, access to technology, all of those are of

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump´s budget on Tuesday, calling the overall proposal "dead on arrival." “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress," McCain, a frequent critic of the president, said in a statement. The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget that would shift $54 billion from nondefense to defense spending for fiscal year 2018. That´s roughly $19 billion more than former President Barack Obama´s last plan. McCain added that Trump´s budget proposal

Fox News staffers are growing increasingly dismayed as network star Sean Hannity and others continue to promote the unfounded conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered last year for talking to WikiLeaks. The Daily Beast spoke to nearly a dozen reporters, pundits, and hosts inside Fox News who all conveyed the same sentiment: Hannity is “embarrassing” the network, and the promotion of the Rich conspiracy theory is senselessly cruel to a grieving family. “ARE WE STILL AIRING THAT SH*T?!” one Fox News political reporter, who says they are furious that the conservative cable-news giant is

Following the death of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes last week, tributes were offered in print and on air both from likely, and perhaps unlikely, sources. But in the opening paragraph of a New York Times op-ed out Monday, Monica Lewinsky said that she did not plan to have her piece serve as another Ailes obituary. “It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” Lewinsky wrote. Calling it a “culture of exploitation,” Lewinsky blasted the environment at Fox News and other cable news outlets — where

A University of Hawaii assistant math professor who holds a PhD degree in mathematics from Princeton University has a new racist equation she wants to promote: white + man + job = her order for white males to quit or be demoted. Piper Harron wrote on a blog for the American Mathematical Society (AMS), titling her piece, “Get Out The Way.” Harron began with her demand: Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else.

Former late-night television host David Letterman eviscerated President Trump in a rare interview, calling the president a “goon” who lacks any core principles. The 70-year-old comedian told GQ magazine in its upcoming June issue that while he has “no reason” to regret hosting Mr. Trump multiple times on “Late Night,” he is very “disappointed” that his former guest is now representing the country. “It makes me sick,” Mr. Letterman said. “But we always looked forward to having him on. He was a great guest. He was just a big, wealthy dope who’d come on and we would make fun of
