Schumer´s Special Prosecutor
Proposal for Russia Lacks ´Fairness´

PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:steveW, 5/15/2017 2:06:26 AM

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer put his foot down on CNN´S "State of the Union" this weekend. [Schumer] said Sunday that the Senate should refuse to confirm a new FBI director until the Department of Justice appoints a special counsel to lead a probe into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. "I think there are a lot of Democrats who feel that way," Schumer said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "We´ll have to discuss it as a caucus, but I would support that move." Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, proposed the idea

Schumer is another grandstander the likes of a circus clown. If none of them show up for a vote, count them as not present and let the 52 Republicans vote the new FBI Director into office.

The last thing Schumer wants to do is make America great again. The Trump administration has the ability to show the Obama as the most inept and dishonest administration in history. That´s the dems bottom-line fear.

#1 I´m certain Schumer is counting on McCain, Graham, Collins, Murkowski or Lee all NeverTrumpers helping him out so the 52 votes is in serious jeopardy. FYI "The Senate failed to advance a resolution Wednesday morning that would have nullified a Bureau of Land Management methane waste prevention rule. Three Republicans?—?Sens. John McCain (AZ), Susan Collins (ME), and Lindsey Graham (SC)?—?sided with Democrats against allowing a vote on the resolution to proceed." One of obama´s EOs.

As long as President Trump stays strong and not bow to the Schumer´s filibuster then everything will be ok. Let the FBI be without a new Director I could care less. Schumer´s request is more than unfair it´s obscene.

As Andrew McCarthy made clear in an article posted here several days ago, Schumer also lacks a crime. What exactly would the special prosecutor prosecute?

For him it does not lack reason. His reason/purpose is to tie President Trump to a continuing problem to at least ‘18 and if he can to the 2020 election. Facts will have no place in this thing, just noise and smoke.

Senator Kamala Harris is a rising star in the Democratic Party, frequently mentioned on the short-list of contenders for the next presidential race. In a recent commencement speech at Howard University Harris issued a call to arms, urging her audience to rally behind the Democrats’ resistance to the Trump administration: “Graduates, indeed we have a fight ahead. This is a fight to define what kind of country we are, and it’s a fight to determine what country we will be.” Ignore for a moment the impropriety of addressing a class of students as though they were Democratic Party operatives.

The Left´s Road Leads To Manchester

On Monday night, a mass murderer killed 22 people and injured 59 at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. The perpetrator was a man named Salman Ramadan Abedi, a man whom friends described as a “devout” Muslim who had memorized the entire Qur’an. He was known to British authorities as a terror threat and had been in touch with a recruiter for the Islamic State (ISIS). I hadn’t heard of Salman Abedi before he murdered all those little girls and their friends and family members at the Ariana Grande concert, but when I recently spoke at Truman State University

In the months before weeping little girls with nails in their faces were carried out of the Manchester Arena, the authorities of that city were hard at work fighting the dreaded threat of Islamophobia. While Salman Abedi, the second-generation Muslim refugee terrorist who maimed and killed dozens in a brutal terrorist attack, stalked the streets wailing, “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah”, Manchester police were busy with more important things. The Greater Manchester Police are one of only two police forces to list Islamophobia as a hate crime category. Earlier this year, Chief Constable Ian

It´s helpful to watch the SecDef press conference on YouTube, if you want to see how Trump´s troops are taking charge. Obama´s limp-wristed and arguably pro-jihad policies, which had some of our military in despair about the crimes against children they were forced to witness in places like Syria, are being replaced by solid, competent, humane but forceful military actions. It´s on YouTube; watch it, and you´ll see standard American competence in charge. We are seeing a great victory in the making, and our frightened allies around the world know it, too. They are joining against ISIS and the other

Donald Trump´s Invigorating Speech
in Riyadh

Let’s play “One of these things is not like the other one.” Compare, if you will, Barack Obama’s 2009 speech in Cairo to the Muslim world with Donald Trump’s speech today in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. There was some overlap: both indulged heartily in the usual political boilerplate and délicatesse: honored to be here, working together, Islam’s great contribution to culture, how splendid is the Middle East, terrorism is not coterminous with Islam, etc., etc. But that’s where the similarity ended. Trump’s speech was a forthright, America First, speech, Obama’s an accommodationist’s dream. These days, we’re supposed to look at everything

Media fake news is everywhere. No, the new health care bill does not treat rape as a pre-existing condition and Republicans did not celebrate its passage with beer. The latest media outrage is driven by a Washington Post story about intelligence disclosures based on claims by anonymous sources. The Post’s big hit pieces are mainly based on anonymous sources. Its latest hit piece runs a quote from, “a former senior U.S. official who is close to current administration officials.” That’s an anonymous source quoting hearsay from other anonymous sources. This isn’t journalism. It’s a joke. Last week, the Washington Post

After I spoke last Thursday in the beautiful nation of Iceland, a Leftist in Reykjavik poisoned me. Perhaps I should have seen it coming. The international Left has rejected free speech, and has embraced violence as a suitable response to speech contradicting its narrative. My visit triggered a firestorm of abuse in the Icelandic press, all of which was based on American Leftist talking points. Every story about my visit used the same elements. For example, that the Southern Poverty Law Center claims I purvey “hate speech,” which is a subjective judgment used to shut down dissent from the establishment

It’s Tuesday, so it must be time for another look at the News, Fake News, and Very Fake News. As I had occasion to note in March, the “motor of fake news is not inaccuracy. It’s malice.” Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, writes a memo for President Trump outlining the case against former FBI director James Comey. And what a case it was, as Andrew McCarthy noted with his usual clarity. All that was news: the memo, Trump’s summary sacking of James “No-Reasonable-Prosecutor” Comey. Like Spring in Shelley’s windy poem, the fake news was not far behind. I was

The national media and the Democratic Party have gone stark raving mad over President Trump´s election victory; they refuse to accept it. Their paroxysms of fury are evident all day long on every network and cable news outlet and every mainstream newspaper. Since Nov. 8, they have leapt like a swarm of remoras onto a whale proclaiming every little thing that they think might take the man down. Hillary´s team concocted the "Russia collusion" hoax within twenty-four hours of her defeat. Everyone knows this! Hillary is the one with all the Russia connections; lots of them, all financially benefitting her

Has Hillary Clinton had a sex change operation? I only ask because her newest front group, "Onward Together," doesn´t mention girls or women in the name. It´s almost as if her electoral defeat has taught her that identity politics no longer work. If only. It´s nominally a political front group to funnel other peoples´ money into leftist campaigns. As if Hillary really cared about that. What Hillary is really up to is cashing in. She knows that now she will never be president, suddenly people are less interested in giving to her "foundation." So she has started this political group, thinking

In the five months since the election, the media haven´t been able to get over getting Trumped. They´ve gone through the five stages of grief, some of them over and over again, and still The Donald drives them crazy. Hillary was one of the worst candidates in history, but it didn´t matter. In our Mass Cult mind, she couldn´t lose. This is a mass media pathology, as we can see from their uncontrolled emotional outbursts.

Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour.

In her Wellesley College commencement address Friday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took repeated shots at President Trump, the man who beat her in November. "Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington," Clinton said. "It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us, the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hardworking people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent middle-class life… And to top it off, it is shrouded in a trillion-dollar mathematical lie."

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated

Former House Speaker John Boehner said he thinks the vast majority of Donald Trump’s presidency has been a “complete disaster” during a recent energy conference in Houston, Texas. Boehner, who resigned from his Ohio House seat in October 2015, applauded Trump’s approach to foreign policy — praising his decision to take a strong stand against the Islamic State — but was highly critical of the progress he has made in other areas thus far. “Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” he said Wednesday, according to energy publication Rigzone. “He’s still learning how to be president.” Boehner and Trump

It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most

Despite heavy lobbying from G7 leaders, President Donald Trump declined to endorse the Paris Climate Agreement in a joint pledge of support for one of former President Barack Obama’s signature achievements in office. Trump’s decision upset world leaders like German Chancellor Angela Merkel, desperate to convince the president of the agreement’s merits. “The Paris deal isn’t just any other deal. It is a key agreement that shapes today’s globalization,” Merkel said, describing discussions with Trump about climate change “very unsatisfying.” For opponents of the agreement, the decision is a welcome development after the president’s economic adviser, Gary Cohn, told reporters that Trump was
