Dan Rather warns Flynn scandal
may be the next Watergate

New York Post, by Alex Mendoza

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/16/2017 11:15:31 AM

The scandal involving former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russia could become a new Watergate. That’s what veteran newsman Dan Rather wrote in a viral Facebook post Tuesday. “On a 10 scale of armageddon for our form of government, I would put Watergate at a 9. This Russia scandal is currently somewhere around a 5 or 6, in my opinion, but it is cascading in intensity seemingly by the hour,” Rather writes. “When we look back at Watergate, we remember the end of the Nixon Presidency. It came with an avalanche, but for most of the time my fellow reporters

I blame the Viet Cong for Dan Rather existing today. When Dan Rather was an embedded reporter in Vietnam with AK47 bullets whizzing around him a good ´Charlie´ sniper could have helped us all out and put us out of our misery from this miserable snail darter.
Joey Buttafuoco Rather has a nice ring to it.

Until the NY Times reveals it´s source in the American intelligence community, the story is BS. The tape is classified information. If the NYTimes can know what´s in the tape, why can´t all Americans.

Call your Congressional people today to tell them this story is BS, tell them to release the tape. Just because the NY Times (Democrat owned and operated) decides to write an unsubstantiated story doesn´t mean the story is true. We all know they make up news. In my opinion, it´s total baloney.

Gunga Dan has always been, as goes the punch line in that old joke about the door-to-door brush salesman, Col. Sanders, and the razor manufacturer, Fuller Chicken Schick. Cronkite managed to make it to retirement and the marble row less professionally damaged than his successor in the CBS chief news reader´s chair. Walter dropped his mask when he told the Playboy interviewer that news "is what I say it is," but Lucy Ramirez´s ghost never fell out of his closet, either.

Rather, in the outer Siberia of the cable lineup these days, is huffing and puffing for attention. If he had any shame this absurd man would apologize for ever having been born, bow his head, and tiptoe away in abject shame, never to speak again, like Meher Baba. He´s exposed himself, been found out, doesn´t look good naked, but doesn´t care what you will say when you get home. Flocks of rotten eggs should fly and perch in layers on his face.

Watergate was about a 2. The MSM built it up to the Crime of the Century. The clintons had a scandal almost every week that was worse, and soetoro perhaps outdid them with all his crimes. Selling guns to mexican drug gangs? Ring a bell, dan? Rape of multiple women? Hello? Selling out the country to the Muslim Brotherhood? Faking documents to influence a Presidential election... that´s a scandal.

The neighbor of an off-duty LAPD cop who was filmed drawing his gun on a 13-year-old while trying to get him off his lawn spoke out in his defense on Thursday, describing him as ´the nicest guy you could ever meet´. Edie Gulrich, 74, said the cop, who DailyMail.com has chosen not to name, always sees ´obnoxious´ teenagers walking across the grass in front of his home in Anaheim, Caifornia, where he lives with his elderly parents. She was at home when he drew his gun and fired one shot while holding 13-year-old Christian Dorscht by his shirt. A video

CHICAGO- Records from former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.´s divorce case show the government has given him large benefit checks after he served time in prisons for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from his campaign fund. Jackson receives about $138,400 annually, the Chicago Tribune reported. Jackson´s attorney, Barry Schatz, said about $100,000 of that is workers´ compensation and is tax free. The rest of his benefits are Social Security Disability Insurance payments, some of which may be taxable. Jackson received the payments because he has depression and bipolar disorder, which led to an extended leave from Congress in 2012.

Seven people were fatally shot in Chicago on Wednesday, making it the deadliest day of 2017 so far. And it was only the 21st time in the past 16 years that Chicago has seen that many homicides in a single day, records analyzed by the Chicago Sun-Times show. The bloody day prompted another tweet from President Donald Trump, who wrote “Seven people shot and killed yesterday in Chicago. What is going on there – totally out of control. Chicago needs help!” As has been the case with other Trump tweets about the subject, there were no specifics from the president

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Deputy White House chief of staff Katie Walsh rocketed to the top and is now — at just 32 years old — the woman who holds down the fort in the White House. Alongside other strong women on President Donald J. Trump’s team, like director of strategic communications, Hope Hicks, or counselor to the president, KellyAnne Conway, Walsh is instrumental in making the White House function.

When Omarosa Manigault, the former “Celebrity Apprentice” antihero-turned-White House adviser, needs to talk to President Donald Trump, she simply strolls into the Oval Office. As assistant to the president and director of communications for the office of public liaison, Manigault enjoys what Trump aides refer to as walk-in privileges — meaning she doesn’t need an appointment or permission to pop her head in and consult with the leader of the free world. Her level of easy access marks a break from the previous administration, where President Barack Obama and his gatekeeper chiefs of staff kept at bay the number of

OXON HILL, Md. — Vice President Mike Pence told thousands of conservative activists Thursday evening that President Trump has succeeded in giving a voice to most Americans like no other Republican leader "since Reagan." "From the outset, our president reminded me of somebody else," Pence, alluding to the 40th president, said in remarks at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. "I believe he has given voice to the aspirations and frustrations of the American people like no one since Reagan," he added.

WASHINGTON- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is praising the media at a time when the Trump administration has accused reporters of being dishonest and delivering "fake news." Ginsburg told the BBC´s "Newsnight" program in an interview Thursday that she reads The Washington Post and The New York Times every day, and that "reporters are trying to tell the public the truth." The 83-year-old justice did not comment directly on President Donald Trump, but said she was encouraged by the massive women´s march in Washington, the day after his inauguration Jan. 20, when demonstrators protested his election victory.

A Chinese-American businessman at the center of a Clinton campaign finance scandal secretly filmed a tell-all video as an ´insurance policy´ - because he feared being murdered. In footage provided exclusively to DailyMail.com, Johnny Chung spills details on how he illegally funneled money from Chinese officials to Bill Clinton´s 1996 re-election bid. The Chinese-American Clinton fundraiser recorded the ´elaborate videotaped testimony´ while in hiding in 2000. He smuggled it to trusted friends and family with instructions to release it to the media in the event of his untimely death because he believed he was at risk of being assassinated. Chung

Hundreds of scientists told President Trump on Thursday to leave a United Nations climate agreement, arguing that carbon dioxide was "environmentally helpful" and not a "pollutant." Massachusetts Institute of Technology climate researcher Dr. Mark Lindzen led the group of 300 scientists who sent the letter to Trump on Thursday. Leaving the United Nations Convention on Climate Change would hamper the United States´ cooperation with the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, according to The Washington Examiner. The scientists are arguing against the view that carbon dioxide polluted the atmosphere, saying it helps "crops and other plants that nourish all life." "There is

An image of White House advisor Stephen Miller is making the rounds on the internet — and it allegedly shows him making the “white power” hand gesture on live TV. Except, as Mediaite so eloquently pointed out, he was just fixing his tie before appearing on “Face the Nation.” Take a look at the picture in question: (Tweet/Photo) DailyKOS made a point on February 21 to insist that Miller is a white supremacist and that his gesture was some sort of anti-Semitic, “white power” shout out.

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, had an unfortunate turn of phrase the other day. She said it’s the mission of the press to “control exactly what people think.” My suspicion is that this was less a Freudian slip than a simple slip-up. Brzezinski was referring to her fear that President Trump may be trying to control the way people think by discrediting the media — whom he calls “enemies of the American people” — and she lost her rhetorical footing, stumbling into saying that mind control is “our job.” But the misstatement resonated with a lot of people,

Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted on Thursday that a full repeal and replace of Obamacare is “not going to happen.” Boehner, who resigned in 2015 amid unrest among conservatives, said at an Orlando health care conference that the idea that a repeal-and-replace plan would blitz through Congress is just “happy talk.” Instead, he said changes to former President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement would likely be relatively modest. “[Congressional Republicans are] going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he said. Boehner’s comments come as Republican lawmakers across the country are facing angry constituents

Entire San Jose neighborhoods were submerged by water on Wednesday during the worst floods for 100 years. 50,000 people were told to flee their homes after evacuation warnings were issued in the early hours of the morning. Most were issued a flood warning but for 14,000 the order was mandatory. The flooding began when Coyote Creek, which runs through Silicone Valley from the San Francisco Bay, burst its banks on Tuesday night. It sent dirty water pouring in to the towns below it at frightening pace. On Wednesday, residents complained that the alert had not been sent out fast enough. Some

She refused to go to his inauguration, stated publicly that she doesn´t want to work with him, called him a dictator, and even called for his impeachment less than a month into his presidency. Here are some of the unusual things Waters has said since the election: (Snip) 3. When she called Trump and his aides a bunch of ‘s*umbags.´ "This is a bunch of s*umbags. That´s what they are." 4.

The Trump administration Wednesday revoked federal guidelines issued by former President Barack Obama that allowed public school students to use restrooms and other facilities corresponding to their gender identity. A document submitted to the Supreme Court by the Solicitor General´s office said that the Obama-era directive issued this past May did not "undergo any formal public process" or explain how the directive was "consistent with the express language of Title IX," the federal law outlawing sex discrimination in education and activities. "Congress, state legislatures, and local governments are in a position to adopt appropriate policies or laws addressing this issue,"

Astronomers have spotted a star system with planets that could support life just 39 light years away. Seven Earth-like planets have been discovered orbiting nearby dwarf star ´Trappist-1´, and all of them could have water at their surface, one of the key components of life. Three of the planets have such good conditions, that scientists say life may have already evolved on them. Researchers claim that they will know whether or not there is life on any of the planets within a decade, and said ´this is just the beginning.´ No other star system discovered before has been found to

State Rep. La Shawn Ford (D-Chicago) said he is drafting legislation that would rename the majority of Interstate 55 in Illinois as the “Barack Obama Expressway.” According to a statement from his office, Ford will propose renaming the stretch of the expressway from the Tri-State Tollway to East St. Louis. “Renaming I-55 for President Barack Obama would not only be an honor for America’s 44th president, but it will be the right measure we should approve for Illinois’ very own state Senator and U.S. Senator,” Ford said in a statement. Between the Tri-State and Lake Shore Drive, the expressway bears

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday openly fretted that Donald Trump’s new immigration orders “could create a climate of fear” for illegal “citizens.” (Yes, co-host Gayle King used the word “citizen.”) Talking to USA Today bureau chief Susan Page, Anthony Mason worried, “This could create a climate of fear in the immigrant community, if it hasn´t already.” Page agreed, “I think it has.” She justified, “Remember that two-thirds of illegal immigrants have been here at least a decade. So, they´re really part of the fabric of our life. Although, admittedly, they´re here illegally.” King insisted, “But they´ve been

An image of White House advisor Stephen Miller is making the rounds on the internet — and it allegedly shows him making the “white power” hand gesture on live TV. Except, as Mediaite so eloquently pointed out, he was just fixing his tie before appearing on “Face the Nation.” Take a look at the picture in question: (Tweet/Photo) DailyKOS made a point on February 21 to insist that Miller is a white supremacist and that his gesture was some sort of anti-Semitic, “white power” shout out. Here´s their reasoning behind such a strong accusation. The right hand, on top, is

Hillary Clinton resurfaced today, sending out a tweet in support of the protests going on at Congressional town halls around the country and calling out lawmakers who won´t face constituents. ´If you can´t stand the heat, get out of the ... Congress,´ she teased, linking to an editorial from the Kansas City Star that said just that. ´Representing the people means showing up, even when the exchange may not be among friends,´ the paper´s editorial board said. During the campaign, now President Donald Trump had made his raucous rallies a positive talking point, while mocking the poor attendance of Clinton´s events. Now, he was

MEXICO CITY — Mexico will vigorously fight U.S. mass deportations of undocumented immigrants back to Mexico and refuse to accept any non-Mexicans expelled across the border, Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray vowed Wednesday. A day after the Trump administration unveiled tough new guidelines for enforcing immigration laws, Videgaray said the treatment of Mexican migrants in the United States would top his country´s agenda when President Enrique Peña Nieto meets Thursday with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly. “I want to make clear, in the most emphatic way, that the government of Mexico and the Mexican
