James Comey´s father recently defended his son, saying he was never ´crazy´ about President Donald Trump and he´s ´convinced that he´s nuts´. Since the firing of former FBI Director, Comey, the president has called him a ´grandstander´ and a ´showboat´, two things that Comey´s father and people from his hometown of Allendale, New Jersey, highly disagree with. ´I never was crazy about Trump,´ J. Brien Comey, 86, a Republican and a former borough councilman, told NorthJersey.com. ´I´m convinced that he´s nuts. I thought he belonged in an institution. He was crazy before he became president. Now he´s really crazy.´ Comey´s father questioned the president´s
Your Honor: If Big James Comey Sr. is going to testify to the extreme bias of Donald Trump by Little Jimmy Comey Jr, could you please ask him to speak up so the whole world knows of Jr´s prejudice against the defendant?
Trump may be unconventional to say he least but he´s far from nuts.He´s done a great job raising his kids who are far more successful in their own right than any liberal trust fund brat.I hope he does fill football stadiums to fund raise to kick rinos from the House and Senate.
Dad thinks he´s helping his little boy, but all he is doing is baking in his kid´s new name -- "Nut Job" -- which will now wind up some day being carved into Jim Comey´s tombstone. Saul Alinsky had the best solution to the way to deal with a nut job like our former FBI director Nut Job: Ridicukle -- unremitting, bombastic and joyful ridicule, the crueler the better.
Who is the nut job here? Clearly in the last year James Comey has done very strange things that no other FBI Director has done, like getting in front of ongoing FBI investigations, by inserting himself in politics making public statements during the run up to the election, and as one of his friends just told the media when going to the White House he wore a blue suit so that he could hide behind a curtain so that President Trump would not notice him. What previous FBI Director has ever done anything like that? That just makes you wonder.
Let´s be real - Comey was chosen as Director because he was a dedicated follower of Obama - as was everyone appointed during his regime. Comey was a true believer - a white Eric Holder. He set the table for his own downfall. Regardless of Comeys´ behavior or political ideology, Trump can fire any appointed govt employee without cause. Comey was smart enough to know his days were numbered. Trump wants his own guy in there.
This is just more proof that every one Barack touched seems to have lost their sense of protecting their country from radical destruction of self government and civil rights called liberty. It is also clear he in turn was a tool of pure evil now scrambling to bring down the Republic. Once again the specter of empire and loss of freedom brings lies and greed from the pits or swamp-- if pits is too harsh for the self proclaimed elite and superior to accept. These fool never learn that their attempts can only bring down everyone including them and history repeats and repeats. Comey is/was a tool and such either goes down via opposition or is sacrificed to the darkness. Can a peoples just once stop that swirling decline? The millions who voted for the end of this fall can determine the result if they are tough enough.Hopefully without a blood bath.
US East Coast residents have been told to monitor Hurricane Maria as it barrels away from the Caribbean and Puerto Rico. The National Weather Service warned on Saturday that the storm, which has already killed at least 10 people in Puerto Rico and 30 in total, now threatens to bring life-threatening swells and rip currents to part of the southeast coast. All of the Mid-Atlantic states - New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia and West Virginia - and both the Carolinas were warned to look out for developments on Sunday and Monday. Maria is still a Category 3
US Air Force fighter jets and B-1B Lancer bombers flew over the waters east of North Korea on Saturday. Earlier on Saturday, US and South Korean military jets carried out practice bombing raids. According to the Pentagon, the exercises demonstrated the range of military options available to US President Donald Trump. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said, "This is the farthest north of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) any US fighter or bomber aircraft have flown off North Korea’s coast in the 21st century, underscoring the seriousness with which we take [North Korea‘s] reckless behavior." "This mission is a demonstration of U.S. resolve and a clear
WU.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers escorted by fighter jets flew in international airspace over waters east of North Korea on Saturday. It was a show of force the Pentagon said demonstrated the range of military options available to President Donald Trump who branded Kim Jong-Un a ´madman´. ´This is the farthest north of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) any U.S. fighter or bomber aircraft have flown off North Korea´s coast in the 21st century, underscoring the seriousness with which we take (North Korea´s) reckless behavior,´ said Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White. North Korea Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho responded to Trump on Saturday: ´Unless true
A-list actor George Clooney, who supported Hillary Clinton amid the 2016 presidential campaign and once hosted a fundraiser for her, said he believes she wasn´t fit for the White House role. Clooney, a 56-year-old new father of twins, spoke during a wide-ranging interview with the Daily Beast where revealed that, while he believes the Democratic nominee was ´qualified for the job,´ she wasn´t a skilled communicator like some of her counterparts. ´Being qualified for the job does not necessarily mean you´re the right person to be president,´ Clooney said in the new interview.
TENS of thousands of people already devastated by the destruction of Hurricane Maria are being rushed out of their homes after a dam threatens to pour downstream onto the stricken island of Puerto Rico. Emergency officials in Puerto Rico raced to evacuate almost 70,000 people away from the eastern dam on the rain-swollen Guajataca River, which will cave “very soon” under the weight of flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Disaster-struck residents of the area were being ferried to higher ground in buses, according to bulletins issued by the National Weather Service from its office in San Juan, the capital
A powerful 3.4 magnitude earthquake has rocked North Korea, sparking fears the nuclear-obsessed nation may have conducted a missile test. The tremor was detected in the Kilju area in the North Hamgyong province hours after Donald Trump mocked ´madman´ Kim Jong-un and the dictator called the US President a ´rabid dog´. The earthquake was felt at 3.30am ET (8.30am GMT) at a depth of zero miles, with China´s official Xinhua News Agency saying it was a ´suspected explosion´. A tremor earlier this month was caused by Kim´s sixth nuclear test so it´s no surprise there are fears this is another.
Vladimir Putin´s hackers targeted 21 states before the 2016 presidential election, the Department of Homeland Security dramatically revealed Friday. Wisconsin, a key state in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, said on Friday it was one of the 21 states that the federal government notified were targeted by Russian government hackers but no votes were changed. Hillary Clinton lost the state in an upset which she has claimed was not her fault. The Department of Homeland Security confirmed it had notified the 21 states but declined to identify them Friday. States that told The Associated Press they had been targeted include Alabama, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland,
Americans support Obamacare over the Senate Republican Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal it by 20 percentage points, according to a new poll. People favor Obamacare over the Senate Republican bill by a vote of 56 to 33 per cent, according to a new ABC News poll. Even 23 per cent of Republicans say they´d prefer Obamacare to the latest plan Republicans came up with. Among independents, 31 per cent would prefer Obamacare. Public approval for Obamacare – which bans denial of coverage for people with preexisting conditions, set up exchanges for sale of private insurance, provided subsidies for medicaid expansion, while requiring people
Austria, Germany and France have threatened to stay away from the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea amid security fears over the nuclear-armed North. Winter Olympics powerhouse Austria also revealed it could stay away from the Pyeongchang Games next February if security concerns deepened. France´s Sports Minister Laura Flessel said yesterday: ´If this gets worse and we do not have our security assured, then our French team will stay here.´ The absence of Austria and other leading winter sports powers would be a hammer blow to the Pyeongchang Games. Austria alone took home 17 medals from the previous Winter Olympics Sochi Games in
A Paris train station near the Eiffel Tower was today evacuated amid a bomb alert. Police were called to the Cambronne Metro stop after receiving reports of a suspicious package. The station is less than a mile from the most famous landmark in Paris and is in the central tourist area. After an hour the package was deemed non-suspicious with passengers allowed to return at approximately 9pm local time. Security remains high around the Eiffel Tower following a series of terror attacks that have hit France carried out by the Islamic State. Just weeks ago tourists were locked inside the famous structure while the Eurostar was evacuated
A tenth elderly patient has died after being kept inside a nursing home that turned into a sweatbox when Hurricane Irma knocked out its air conditioning for three days. Police in Florida confirmed 94-year-old Martha Murray died on Wednesday and said her death was related to the problems at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills following Irma. The first eight patients from the home died on September 13, three days after Irma struck and he ninth died Tuesday, even though just across the street was a fully functioning and cooled hospital. Hollywood police and the state attorney´s office are investigating the incident.
Incredible colourised photos have been unearthed showing international volunteers in the Spanish Civil War. The images show members of the famous International Brigade, which counted literary stars such as George Orwell, Ernest Hemmingway and Laurie Lee as members, as well as the Red Cross and local Spanish Republican militia. They are all the work of Doug Banks, who painstakingly brought the images up to date. They show soldiers enjoying a spot of lunch in front of their aircraft and members of the Red Cross on a rescue mission after the detonation of a bomb. ´The images are mainly of American volunteers enlisted into
Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC). The Arizona Republican declared that he couldn´t "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with block grants to states. John McCain?Verified account @SenJohnMcCain I cannot in good conscience vote for Graham-Cassidy. A bill impacting so many lives deserves a bipartisan approach. The news brought a sudden turnaround in managed-care stocks, though much of that was short-lived. Shares of Centene, whose fortunes are more tied to the ObamaCare exchanges and Medicaid
Former First Lady Michelle Obama has spoken about what life was like for her and her family during her eight years in The White House. Her candid comments came during a moderated discussion at a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday evening. ´It´s like being shot out of a cannon while drinking from a fire hydrant blind,´ she explained as she told of how she got used to her new way of living. ´You have to tell The White House what kind of toilet paper you like. You don´t know where your forks are.´ (Photos) Mrs Obama
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.
Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) tweeted that she hopes all NFL players kneel during the national anthem on Sunday in response to President Trump´s remarks attacking Colin Kaepernick. Edwards, who left Congress earlier this year, called Trump a "white supremacist who squats in our White House" in her tweet.
The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce
GQ host Keith Olbermann wants NFL fans to remain seated during the national anthem to protest President Trump. “This is simple: To defend OUR right to protest we as fans/consumers ALSO must not stand during the National Anthem until Trump’s threat ends,” the former MSNBC host wrote on Twitter Saturday afternoon. (Tweet) Trump asserted during a rally on Friday night that players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired. ) The president doubled down on Twitter Saturday morning. “If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be
If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell snapped back at “divisive” comments about the league Saturday, hours after President Trump urged team owners to fire players who won’t stand for the national anthem. At a political rally Friday night in Alabama, Trump griped that players who kneel for “The Star Spangled Banner” disrespect the flag and should lose their jobs. (Snip) Goodell issued a statement via Twitter at 9:16 a.m. Saturday: “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs
His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .
There really ought to be a statute of limitations on how long John McCain can play the tortured war hero card. His war hero status was exhausted with me a decade ago over a single instance. Brad Smith, who as chairman of the Federal Election Commission and law professor dared to criticize the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on constitutional grounds (later vindicated in several Supreme Court cases culminating in the glorious Citizens United decision), came before a Senate committee one day to testify about campaign finance laws. He had recently had surgery, and had to appear in a wheelchair. Smith wheeled himself
President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem - and called on fans to walk out if they see anyone doing so. Several of the league´s top stars have refused to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police in the United States. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a public stance on the issue while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, hasn´t been signed by an NFL team for this season. While he didn´t mention Kaepernick specifically by name Trump indicated he believes any players protesting are disrespecting the flag and deserve
Hillary Clinton said on MSNBC Saturday that women who support President Trump are “publicly disrespecting themselves.” (VideoTweet) “When I see women doing that, I think, ‘Why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace, in a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?´” Clinton told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on AM Joy. Clinton commented about the Trump-supporting women after Reid asked her about pro-Trump women wearing shirts with profanities directed at Clinton. The former 2016 presidential candidate added that she thought it was “troubling” to hear about
