President Trump abruptly fired embattled FBI Director James B. Comey Jr. late yesterday afternoon for exceeding his authority during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email abuses. The long-overdue termination of Comey, who inappropriately injected himself and the FBI into political matters, came three-and-a-half years into his 10-year term. It was based on the recommendation of the Department of Justice and was effective immediately. Comey’s firing is a reaffirmation of the importance of the rule of law. He was more powerful than an FBI director ever should be. As commentator Brit Hume observed, “For better or worse, no FBI director since J. Edgar
Comments: Keeping the felonius Sir Edmund out of jail and securing her nomination for president - a price is now paid. Deplorables hope more prices will be paid.
I suspect that this weekend, Comey will exceed Susan Rice´s record for the number of Sunday shows she appeared on pushing the Benghazi video lie. I further suspect that Comey is about to become a very rich man.
Trump put in the part about Comey informing him repeatedly of not being under investigation, to flag Comeys impudence and efforts to intimidate his boss. in this he is referring as well to comeys like impudence and intimidation of others.
Yeah, we’re a republic, but we also have democratic rules, norms, and traditions. Too bad the Democratic Party doesn’t believe in them. Case in point – their bizarre embrace of illegal aliens. Democrats seem to think that foreigners who violate our laws have a greater right to determine what will be America´s laws than actual Americans. After all, that´s their argument when they whine because some illegal is getting shipped back to his Third World hellhole-of-origin. They seem to think that just because some uninvited, unwanted, unlegal trespasser (we’re not supposed to call them “illegal,” right?) has been violating our laws
Donald Trump campaigned on the promise to “drain the swamp” ––the D.C. establishment made up of most Congressmen from both parties, employees of executive agencies and bureaus, the political appointees who head up those agencies, and the hordes of lobbyists, fundraisers, Congressional staffers, “consultants,” “journalists,” and pundits. These are the “Beltway insiders” or the “political establishment” whose natural habitat is the swamp. These are the alligators Trump needs to get rid of. Of course, many of these D.C. denizens of the establishment are permanent dwellers in the swamp, beyond the reach of the president or even Congress. Besides, monitoring Congressmen should
The New York contingent of plotters gathered in the Times building so they could use the company’s considerable communications resources to monitor the coup. In Washington, the plotters were spread out – the State Department, the FBI headquarters (the new Director was under arrest and his Obama holdout deputies were overseeing the arrest of key Republicans, conservative Supreme Court justices, and other appointed officials). The Pentagon was paralyzed – the plotters had enlisted enough officers to prevent an effective counter response. And, of course, the NSA had ensured that all comms out of the besieged White House were down. Elsewhere,
“We cannot tolerate this any longer,” said the former CIA Director at the head of the table. “We have to forcibly retake the government from Donald Trump. It is the only way save our democracy.” His audience nodded solemnly. The men and women gathered at that secret February meeting on the top floor of 241 West 41st Street, the New York Times building, were Democrat politicians, media figures, retired and active members of the federal security bureaucracy, and several Establishment Republicans, and they were at wit’s end. There simply was no other choice. Donald Trump must be replaced, and it no
During the eight years of the Obama administration, half a million Christians, Yazidis and Muslims were slaughtered in the Middle East by ISIS and other Islamic jihadists, in a genocidal campaign waged in the name of Islam and its God. Twenty million others were driven into exile by these same jihadist forces. Libya and Yemen became terrorist states. America - once the dominant foreign power and anti-jihadist presence in the region – was replaced by Russia, an ally of the monster regimes in Syria and Iran, and their terrorist proxies. Under the patronage of the Obama administration, Iran - the
Your right to free speech has been endangered by an unexpected source, Congressional Republicans. Recently introduced, H.R. 257, postures itself as a bill to combat hate crimes, but in reality, achieves nothing but potentially eroding our first amendment rights. The United States already has strict laws on the books that protect against hate crimes, so one reasonably asks, “why do we need this new resolution?” Yes, this particular legislation is merely a “resolution” or a formal statement by a legislative body, but might the continued discussion of this matter really seek to prepare us to slowly move toward the next step in the
Tuesday at a joint news conference with Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri, President Donald Trump said the U.S. military has been beating back ISIS adding, they’ve made more progress “in the last four or five months” than “the previous administration made in eight years.” Trump said, “Well, we are helping. One of the things that we have made tremendous strides at is getting rid of ISIS. We have generals that don’t like to talk. They like to do. We were with general Mattis last night. The success they’ve had against ISIS extraordinary. We’ve made more progress in the last four or
On Monday, the Democrats were really excited about their new slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.” Widely ridiculed for being idiotic, here’s a slogan they could have chosen, which is much more honest about the current liberal agenda: “A Bully’s Deal: If You Ever Think For Yourself and Don’t Conform, We’ll Ruin Your Life.” This slogan has been operational for a generation. It is shouted at conservative women, gays and other minorities because, you see, today’s Democrats cannot afford to have anyone in any of their protected classes get the idea that they can think for themselves. What
As readers of PJ Media´s daily feature, Hot Mic, are aware, I´m not a big fan of Amazon. In the guise of ease, efficiency and allegedly low prices, it´s crushing the life out of the retail section in the United States, demolishing bookstores, big-box stores, department stores, grocery stores, record stores, and even smaller retail outlets, putting small businessmen, struggling authors and garage bands out of business. In so doing, it´s also killing job prospects for entry-level workers who might actually not want to work at McDonald´s. In their place, it offers you Alexa, your very own electronic monitor and spy,
What difference does it make? Bad ideas work their way back to worse premises. The ‘worse premise’ of the bad idea of NeverTrump was that it didn’t really matter if Hillary won. It was an echo of Hillary’s infamous Benghazi testimony. What difference does it make anyway if the woman behind the Arab Spring were running our foreign policy and if the Clinton Foundation’s gallery of rogue donors were running everything else? It sure as hell didn’t make a difference to NeverTrumpers who were too busy grading Trump on table manners and finding implausible reasons to believe that President Hillary
If any doubts remained that the Fox News channel is continuing to swerve from its conservative roots, they were erased on July 16, 2017 when Ezekiel Emanuel, M.D., a principal architect of Obamacare and a barely hinged spin doctor for the Democrat socialist left, appeared on the channel’s signature weekly program Fox News Sunday in his new role as a paid contributor. During the program, the ever arrogant Emanuel jumped on the Resist Trump bandwagon and suggested that President Trump is worthy of being impeached. Hired last February primarily as a health policy analyst (he is a physician and professor,
President Donald Trump may not be in the White House had former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin not blazed the trail for him. This week, Bernie Quigley observed that Palin “was prelude and harbinger” to Trump’s arrival. He wrote in The Hill that he was reading William Strauss and Neil Howe’s The Fourth Turning when Palin appeared on the national stage. And he said then that “it was possible to see the rise of new political archetypes and forms and they are now upon us.” “It was not President Donald Trump that brought the age, although he turned the key. It was Palin.
MSNBC´s Andrea Mitchell on Wednesday criticized White House aide Stephen Miller for a heated exchange with a CNN reporter over President Trump´s immigration policy, calling him "rude." "Trump aide Stephen Miller lecturing Cuban-American Jim Acosta of CNN on green card policy which his family lived 1st hand," the MSNBC anchor tweeted, adding the hashtag "rude." (Snip) Miller and Acosta clashed during the White House press briefing over the new GOP legislation that aims to scale back legal immigration in the United States. The White House aide, who has long advocated for a hard-line immigration policy, made the case for a "merit-based" immigration
A mother of four living in Ohio was deported to Mexico after a traffic stop revealed she entered the country illegally from Mexico nearly 20 years ago. Beatriz Morelos Casillas, 37, was arrested for driving without a license near Cleveland, Ohio, on July 24. Tuesday, she was deported to Nuevo Laredo, one of the most dangerous places in Mexico and where the State Department issued a travel warning in December 2016 due to violent crime. Beatriz´s husband – who is here legally on a work visa – drove from Ohio to be with her and make sure she´s safe. Her relatives in Ohio called her deportation unfair and worry about the
President Obama and his allies are already whispering in the ear of the Democrat they´d like to see run for president next, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett and even the former president himself, according to Politico, all see Patrick, who left politics in 2015, as an heir apparent. He, however, doesn´t seem that interested yet, while Obama´s ex-vice president Joe Biden, seems more primed to run. ´I´m trying to think about how to be helpful, because I care about the country, and I´m a patriot first,´ he told Politico for the pub´s Off Message podcast. ´It´s
A friend of mine who attended the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this year -- I skipped it -- reported to me that the Young Republican men were "wearing their ties down past their [crotches]." I cleaned up the quote a bit for the benefit of a family newspaper. Though I´m not sure why I should bother when a White House communications director has helped so many staid institutions expand their horizons. As my National Review colleague Kyle Smith noted, the New York Times has a long history of insisting that vulgarities do not meet the definition of news fit to print.
Former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power is believed to have made "hundreds" of unmasking requests to identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team, according to multiple sources who said the behavior is unprecedented for an official in her position. Power was first identified by the Washington Free Beacon last month as a central figure in a congressional investigation into efforts by senior Obama administration officials to obtain classified intelligence information in what many allege was an effort to undermine President Donald Trump and his incoming national security team. Power is believed
I pray this is a joke. If it is satire, The Onion should ask for permission to reprint immediately. President Trump delivered an address to law enforcement last Friday, which triggered some progressive snowflakes because he joked about our police roughing up MS-13 gang members. It was a joke. If you can’t catch on when Trump is joking and when he’s not, I don’t know what to tell you. They’re often rather self-evident that he’s not actually hoping police are overly physical with detained suspects, but let’s move on to this part of this Washington Post op-ed about the matter. The
A pair of Chick-fil-A customers in Florida were unsatisfied with their local restaurant’s service — so they decided to trash the place on their way out. The incident took place on Monday night at a Chick-fil-A in the River City neighborhood of Jacksonville, Fla., according to Allison Music, a witness who shared footage of the ordeal on Facebook. In her post, Music explained that she was waiting for an order at Chick-fil-A when she saw a teenage boy arguing about his order with the staff “for a good 15 or 20 mins.” She also said the manager had locked up
John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton´s 2016 presidential campaign, told CNN´s Alisyn Camerota on Wednesday that he loses sleep "every night" with the "burden" of having lost the Electoral College to Donald Trump. Camerota asked Podesta whether Clinton was surprised at how often Trump invokes her name this far into his presidency. "It´s unprecedented," Podesta said. " You never saw that behavior from any other president who´s talking about the person they beat. I think it really just bugs the hell out of him that she got three million more votes than he did and he keeps coming back
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Newly minted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders flipped Russia conspiracy questions during Tuesday’s press briefing, pointing to a lack of evidence against the Trump Administration and a host of evidence against Bill and Hillary Clinton. Sanders slammed media questions aimed at showing that there were any “misleading” actions by the Trump campaign or Trump Administration with regards to Russia. “The thing I see misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion. And a phony scandal based on anonymous sources. And, I think if we’re gonna
Rosie O´Donnell said women should form their own political party after a Democratic congressman said Democrats would not hold back party funds from candidates who oppose abortion. New Mexico Representative and second-term Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján said ´there is not a litmus test´ for Democratic candidates in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections. ´As we look at candidates across the country, you need to make sure you have candidates that fit the district, that can win in these districts across America,´ Luján told The Hill in an interview published Monday. That includes candidates who do not support
Donnie Herlt didn’t realize America’s stock market hit a record high Wednesday until a reporter called him and asked about it. No one in his office said anything about the Dow Jones industrial average hitting 22,000 for the first time ever.
Congress is advancing an investigation into a growing scandal surrounding IT staffers working for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), who are accused of stealing sensitive computer equipment from House lawmakers´ offices, according to senior congressional sources who told the Washington Free Beacon the Democratic leader´s refusal to answer questions could "merit resignation." Congressional leaders have now requested a formal briefing by Capitol Police into its investigation of several Pakistani House IT staffers who are accused of stealing sensitive computer equipment and of illegally penetrating congressional networks. Imran Awan, one of the staffers who worked for Wasserman Schultz and several other Democratic
