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
Comments: The day the Democrat party is taken to court for their crimes cannot come soon enough.
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.
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.
“In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate,” a terrorist declares on the Flight 93 cockpit recording. That’s followed by the sounds of the terrorists assaulting a passenger. “Please don’t hurt me,” he pleads. “Oh God.” As the passengers rush the cabin, a Muslim terrorist proclaims, “In the name of Allah.” As New York firefighters struggle up the South Tower with 100 pounds of equipment on their backs trying to save lives until the very last moment, the Flight 93 passengers push toward the cockpit. The Islamic hijackers call out, “Allahu Akbar.” The Islamic supremacist term originated with Mohammed’s massacre
So what does the GOP establishment do in 2018 when it comes before us dirty, nasty normals and tries to make the case that its members deserve being reelected to Congress instead of being tarred and feathered? After seven years of solemn assurances, it couldn’t even get its act together and keep its promise to put a stake through the heart of the abomination that is Obamacare. But hey – when Donald Trump kept his promise to undo DACA, that sure spurred the True Conservatives to action. The deductibles my employees pay just went up two grand a year because
It was early, very early in Los Angeles. Dawn was just beginning -- the horizon was a pure clear blue, the sky still dark enough that the constellations could be seen. The freeways were full, but the traffic was flowing well, and people on the road were congratulating themselves for their early start, or grateful their night shift was over and thinking about home and bed. Most people, though, were still asleep. Hardly anyone was worrying about North Korea -- China and Russia had finally come around on greater sanctions, and the common opinion was that a military coup was coming
What happens to a country whose most important police force — and its key investigators — is no longer telling the truth to the citizens of that nation? Nothing good, I´m sure most would agree. There´s almost no point in going through all the analogies to despotic regimes. Writers from George Orwell to Arthur Koestler have already done it for us. But those analogies come immediately to mind following two revelations regarding our Federal Bureau of Investigation that surfaced this week. In one instance, the FBI refused to turn over documents regarding the Hillary Clinton emails because of -- wait
The left has been pushing the notion that masculinity is “toxic” and must be rooted out. Classes of college students are propagandized to this point of view, often mandatorily imposed. “Feminist“ speakers and books for young girls promote it and women’s magazines are full of such drivel. This week it’s apparent that it’s this kind of nonsense that’s toxic, not masculinity. Often it’s a cover for jealousy and a corrupt search for power. Vogue Skunked Beginning with the less overtly significant, we have the Stiletto war. When stunningly gorgeous Melania Trump headed off for Texas to comfort the residents beset
Now we know why the FBI made the absurd claim that it would not release its files on the Hillary Clinton email investigation for alleged lack of public interest. The FBI was covering up its obstruction of justice in the, er, “matter” knowing full well that former Director James Comey had already exonerated Hillary Clinton before the alleged investigation was complete and all witnesses had been interviewed and months before Comey falsely claimed in his announcement that no competent prosecutor would take Hillary’s case. In withholding the files sought under Freedom of Information Act requests, the FBI forgot that it and
President Trump announced a decision on DACA will be Tuesday. Will this finally begin the “Big Ugly” confrontation? Possibly, but one thing is certain, right now he’s probing. CTH is not a seer of Donald Trump, and anyone who would claim they are should be necessarily dismissed. President Donald Trump is the only entity who knows specifically what he’s going to do in the moments leading up to what he’s going to do; no-one else. However, that said, CTH does have a pretty good sense of what evaluation processes Trump takes prior to action. There are indications Tuesday might be the
How many flood victims in South Texas have been rescued by the Antifa navy? Just asking, because on TV this week I’ve been watching the “Cajun Navy” pull one Dunkirk after another all around the Gulf Coast. And those good old boys look like they just came off the set of “Duck Dynasty.” They could be wearing MAGA hats. Hell, I’ll bet one or two of them may have even been falsely accused of committing a fake hate crime or two since the election by some unhinged Social Justice Warrior. They are, to coin a phrase, deplorables. Hell, a Chick-fil-A franchise
The Grand Old Party is about to commit suicide. All this talk about Trump this, and Trump that, masks a far bigger political controversy. The Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., has fundamentally betrayed its constituents and they are about to learn that they’ve been double-crossed — for years. Every Republican candidate’s stock speech sounds the same, the thunderous roar about a government out of control, federal spending out of control (insert charts and graphs and why, if you stack hundred dollar bills, they will reach the edge of the universe), federal taxes out of control (insert comparisons to socialist countries),
What on earth has happened to the moral and political sensibilities of Paul Ryan, John McCain, Jeff Flake, Jeb Bush, etc.? All of those RINOs who are attacking President Trump for pardoning Joe Arpaio are simpering, whining traitors to the party they allegedly represent. They should declare themselves Democrats and be done with the masquerade. Perhaps they should remind themselves of all the criminals and thugs that President Obama pardoned, or that President Clinton pardoned. Trump made it clear at his rally in Phoenix that he was going to pardon the beleaguered sheriff. The audience there was thrilled, as were the
"Russia, Russia, Russia" isn´t working and may actually turn against the Democrats. What is next in their playbook? The usual racism page, although this time, it is for all of the marbles. With nothing to run on besides "Trump is evil," and with the Awan scandal ahead, they have no choice. Twenty-eighteen will be a bloodbath for them in a regular election, so they have to suppress turnout, if not eliminate it. More and more, Charlottesville looks like a setup. Jason Kessler, who organized the "Unite the Right" event, seems to have a history with the left. Aside from his Occupy
The people who are tearing down statues of Confederates in the South are barbarians, not notably different from the Taliban fanatics who blow up Buddhas and other historical monuments. Many have noted that if the barbarians want to erase Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis today, it is only a matter of time before they come for George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. We can add Abraham Lincoln to that list. Last night, a bust of Lincoln in Chicago was vandalized, apparently as a political act: Abraham Lincoln has joined George Washington on the list of those targeted by Chicagoans in
Hillary Clinton told CNN on Wednesday that it is time to abolish the Electoral College, part of a sweeping interview where the former Democratic nominee sought to explain why she lost the 2016 election. Clinton, in the interview with CNN´s Anderson Cooper, displayed her animus for fired FBI Director James Comey, reflected on her love for the people -- namely former President Bill Clinton -- who helped her get through the crushing loss and blasted the arcane election body that she believes helped Donald Trump win the presidency. "I think it needs to be eliminated," Clinton said of the Electoral
Melania Trump appears to have sworn off the high heels that got her labeled out of touch and disrespectful when she donned them to visit hurricane victims. The first lady, 47, wore black and beige Chanel flats as she flew from Washington, DC to Fort Myers, Florida with her husband this morning to meet with citizens impacted by Hurricane Irma. Last month, she caused an uproar when she donned high heels while to visit areas struck by Hurricane Harvey in Texas—but wore similar shoes on a follow-up trip to the disaster-struck state earlier this month.

John McCain is joining a bipartisan push to block President Donald Trump from banning transgender people from serving in the military. Mr Trump issued a moratorium last month instructing the military to stop providing gender reassignment surgeries for transgender troops, and to stop plans to recruit those troops. That decision came following an order from his predecessor that instructed the military to begin considering programmes to allow transgender people to serve openly and without worry in the military. (Snip) Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, and Senator Susan Collins, a Republican, are also behind the effort. “Thousands of brave transgender Americans love
Bill Clinton defended Hillary Clinton´s new book What Happened saying that those who did read it have enjoyed it. "They don´t have to buy it," Clinton told TIME while addressing those who have criticized Clinton´s new book. "The people that have read it liked it," he added. What Happened chronicles Clinton´s loss in the 2016 presidential election. The book is already at the top of Amazon´s best-seller list, though there are some bad reviews.
Facing harsh criticism, a Harvard dean said early Friday morning that he was revoking his invitation to Chelsea Manning, a former United States soldier convicted of leaking classified information, to be a visiting fellow at the university. The sudden turnabout by the Harvard Kennedy School came after a day of intense backlash over the university’s announcement on Wednesday that Ms. Manning would become a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics this school year. Douglas W. Elmendorf, the dean of the Harvard Kennedy School, said that while the university encourages a diversity of opinions and does not shy from controversy,
After months of denials, the pretext for Susan Rice’s eavesdropping on Trump officials has finally been made public. It had been widely known that Obama’s former National Security Adviser had contrived to unmask the names of top Trump officials who had been spied on by the administration. And the same media that still treats Watergate as the Great American Scandal had claimed that there was nothing “improper” in an Obama loyalist eavesdropping on members of the opposition party. Every time Obama Inc. was caught eavesdropping on opposition politicians, it presented its spin in a carefully packaged “scoop” to a major media
Meghan McCain, the political scion who turned a stint as a blogger and TV show host into a role as a contributor at Fox News Channel, is leaving the network. (Snip) “Meghan has been a valuable part of ‘Outnumbered’ and the Fox News team,” the 21st Century Fox-owned outlet said in a statement. “We’re sad to see her go, but we wish her all the best.” “I’m so thankful to Fox News for the chance to be on ‘Outnumbered,’ but I’m leaving to focus on other things,” McCain said in a statement. “I have no doubt the show will continue
Hillary Clinton’s new book entitled “What Happened” was officially released on Tuesday. Since then, she has been promoting it with the zeal of an indefatigable carnival barker. It seems to be working. (Snip) I’ve spent two days and consumed three packs of Tums trying to digest all 464 pages. (I’m a fast reader.) I initially counted 43 reasons Clinton gives for her 2016 election loss, as she meticulously faults all the people who sabotaged what was rightfully hers. But upon closer examination, I have discovered thirteen more who are to blame. Incredible. But not surprising. You see, Clinton has long
A Detroit Lions fan has forfeited his season tickets and is banned from future events at Ford Field after he posted a Snapchat photo using the N-word to describe a pair of fans who sat through the national anthem Sunday. The man posted a Snapchat photo on Facebook of a black couple sitting during the anthem with the caption “Ignorant [expletive].” The Facebook caption read: “You wana sit down for the national anthem? You dont like our country then get tge [expletive] outttt [sic].” The photo was allegedly posted by David Doptis, owner of Restaurant Liquidations Auctions LLC in Pontiac,
CNN host Anthony Bourdain joked in an interview with TMZ that he would poison President Trump if given the opportunity to cook for him and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. "If Trump and Kim Jong-un were going to have a bit of a summit to try and mend relations and they wanted you to cater, what would you serve?" asked a TMZ reporter. "Hemlock," Bourdain deadpanned. Hemlock is defined as "a drug or lethal drink prepared from the poison hemlock" that has been used as an execution method. The 61-year-old host of CNN´s weekly food and travel series, "Parts Unknown," later told Fox
Chelsea Manning has been making quite a spectacle of himself out on Twitter, taking Michael Morrell´s and Mike Pompeo´s exit from the school as a welcome new opportunity to call attention to himself. He starts with an emoji-filled cheer at news of Morrell´s resignation from his own Harvard post based on its bad judgment in bringing him into the university to ´mentor´ students, declaring it ´good´ that Morrell has pulled out. Not a thought about how Morrell´s exit might affect Harvard, it´s all about himself and his feelings instead. Note the high emoji count, by the way - an advertisement
New York - ESPN says it has accepted the apology of its "SportsCenter" host Jemele Hill for tweeting this week that President Donald Trump was a "white supremacist" and "bigot." The network and Hill delivered statements shortly before midnight, hours after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday called Hill´s comments outrageous and something that could be considered a fireable offense by ESPN. (Snip) Hill was supported by the National Association of Black Journalists, which issued a statement saying it "supports Hill´s First Amendment rights on all matters of discussion, within and outside the world of sports, as they
