While discussing the New York Times’ report that President Trump called FBI Director James Comey a “nutjob” and told Russian officials that firing Comey relieved “great pressure” on Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” CNN Political Director David Chalian argued the Trump White House does have a point about leaks, and that while “It’s not going to save them from their real legal and political troubles,” “there are people in this government who seem pretty committed to taking him down.” Chalian began by saying, “We saw that the White House tried to explain what he meant by pressure was that
“It’s not going to save them from their real legal and political troubles…” Ok political troubles is in the eye of the beholder, but legal is another thing. I have yet to have an explanation of the “legal” trouble. According to the memo (if it exists) the language did not demonstrate any intent to thwart justice for Flynn. And in this case intent is required. Further the Director of the FBI is required to report to the Justice Department any attempt to obstruct justice. It is a crime if he does not. Comey went further later while under oath he stated that no one had pushed him to obstruct justice. To me this closes out that problem. So where is this “legal” problem that the President faces?
The left and their counterparts,the commies have spent the better part of 50 years trying to destroy this country from the inside out.They have infiltrated just about every where.With Trump deconstructing their "progress" bit by bit,it´s no wonder they´re so frantic. If the public thinks he´s done a good job,he´ll get re-elected,setting the left back close to 30 years.The left knows conservatism works but it´s their job to hide that from many people as possible.
Texas native Don Williams, who forged his own musical identity in the 1970s with a unique and low-key style of country that earned him the nickname “The Gentle Giant,” passed away on Friday (Sept. 8). A press release from the singer´s PR team confirms his death "after a short illness," saying that funeral arrangements are pending. He was 78 years old. Williams was born May 27, 1939 in Floydada, Texas, growing up in nearby Portland. Music had always been close to Williams’ heart, as he entered his first talent contest -- and won -- at the age of three. His
New episodes of CBS´s Star Trek: Discovery are inspired by the post-Trump America, with the Klingons set to represent Trump supporters. The upcoming season of the show will tell the story of a war between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, which will be a loose allegory for the 2016 election, Entertainment Weekly reported Thursday. "The allegory is that we really started working on the show in earnest around the time the election was happening," showrunner Aaron Harberts told EW. "The Klingons are going to help us really look at certain sides of ourselves and our country.
Fox News has reportedly severed ties with former “Specialists” host Eric Bolling, and canceled his show, after several sources reported receiving inappropriate text messages from him, according to The Huffington Post. After HuffPost revealed those accusations in August, Fox suspended Bolling, pending an internal investigation. Shortly thereafter, Bolling defended himself on Twitter, writing that he looked forward to “clearing” his name: (Tweet) Bolling went so far as to file a $50 million against reporter Yashar Ali, who wrote HuffPost´s original story, for defamation. Michael J. Bowe, Bolling´s lawyer, said Bolling recalled no such “inappropriate communications”: “Mr. Bolling recalls no such
Troy Gentry, best known as part of the country music duo Montgomery Gentry, was killed in a helicopter crash in New Jersey Friday, Fox News has confirmed. The singer was 50. (FB post) A rep for the group made the announcement on Facebook: The Federal Aviation Administration said the helicopter crashed into a wooded area near the Flying W Airport in Medford hours before Montgomery Gentry was due to perform at a resort that is also housed at the airport. The airport announced the cancellation of the gig Friday afternoon. Medford Township Police Chief Richard Meder told NJ.com that police
Gary Cohn may not be Donald Trump’s chief economic adviser for much longer. Cohn’s fraying relationship with the president is raising questions about how much longer the former Goldman Sachs executive will remain in his post, according to a report from Reuters citing “sources close to the White House.” The Wall Street Journal reported, and Breitbart News confirmed, that Cohn had fallen out of the running to be nominated by Trump to be the successor to Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen. Cohn is reportedly on the outs with the president following his criticism in a Financial Times interview of Trump’s
Mad Maxine Waters is off her meds again! Maxine Waters (D-CA) has three main war cries. Russian collusion, Nazis/KKK and impeach 45. This time she’s claiming the alt-right wants to kill her and others. She even named Breitbart as part of the alt-right threat. (Photo) Here is Maxine Waters’ direct quote to a Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance on Wednesday via Pj Media: “What can we do to deal with the KKK, the white nationalists, the extremists, the alt-right?” They’re on the internet, they’re Breitbart. If you look at the YouTube, you see how much they want to kill
President Trump has invited all members of the Cabinet and their spouses this weekend to Camp David, where he will hold a Cabinet meeting Saturday, the White House said. The invitation was made by Mr. Trump and first lady Melania Trump, who already were planning the getaway to the retreat just outside Washington in western Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains. At the Cabinet meeting, which will be the president’s fourth, he will “lead discussion on the administration’s priorities in addition to receiving briefings on Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts and preparations for Hurricane Irma,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The
A couple married for 75 years has been left baffled after two devastating hurricanes in the Atlantic were named after them. Harvey and Irma Schluter - aged 104 and 93 - said they ´don´t know how´ both their names ended up being attached to the storms. The Washington state couple met in the 1940s and lived through the Great Depression, Second World War, John Kennedy assassination and countless deadly hurricanes - though none has ever hit their Spokane home. (Photos) But speaking to the New York Times, Irma said it was ´really sad´ that her namesake has smashed into the
CNN’s Tom Kludt reported “the booking is a coup” – CBS Sunday Morning host Jane Pauley will get the first TV interview with Hillary Clinton since her defeat at Trump’s hands in 2016, airing Sunday. Then Kludt noted CBS owns Hillary’s publisher Simon & Schuster, so there’s really no “coup” there at all. But the synergy is also strong between Hillary and Jane Pauley. In fact, 25 years ago today – on September 8, 1992 – Pauley uncorked one of the soggiest interviews ever with Mrs. Clinton, on Dateline NBC shortly after that year’s Republican convention. It´s amazing that CNN
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made an interesting remark during an interview Wednesday on FS1: “I’m not a football expert.” (Video) Seems like a strange thing for Goodell to say, considering he gets paid more than $34 million a year to run a football league. Of course, that quote is lacking context. The topic of conversation was Colin Kaepernick, with Goodell stating that he thought teams aren’t hiring the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback because he doesn’t fit their particular systems and not because he protested during the national anthem last season. “I want to see everyone get an opportunity, including
WASHINGTON — Bay State Sen. Elizabeth Warren is backing Bernie Sanders’ single-payer health care bill, joining other high-profile Democrats yesterday as a co-sponsor of the Vermont independent senator’s measure to extend Medicare coverage to everyone as the midterm election season draws near. “Medicare for All is one way that we can give every single person in the country access to high-quality health care,” Warren said in a statement released by her campaign yesterday. “Everyone is covered. Nobody goes broke paying a medical bill. Families don’t have to bear the costs of heartbreaking medical disasters on their own.” The Cambridge Democrat
Islamic State militants attempting to evacuate members stranded in the Syrian desert are being pummeled by US-led coalition air strikes, the military said Thursday. ´Like moths to a flame,´ coalition spokesperson Army Col. Ryan S. Dillon told the military publication Stars and Stripes. Dillon said that at least 40 vehicles belonging to ISIS have attempted to rescue the stranded jihadists, including armored technical vehicles and a tank disguised as a truck. (Photos) ´We were able to continue to just observe and pick them off one at a time,´ Dillion said. At least 300 ISIS militants and about as many women and
She still doesn’t get it. In her forthcoming memoir ‘What Happened” (out Tuesday), Hillary Clinton takes perfunctory responsibility for losing the election before spending nearly 500 pages blaming: Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, “rash FBI director” James Comey, Obama, the Russians, sexism, and, finally, the American people for not liking her enough. Sanders, she writes, had the gall to run against her even though he’s not a Democrat. “That’s not a smear, that’s what he says,” she writes. “He didn’t get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party.” Clinton bemoans the sexism
President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell´s tête-à-tête on Tuesday — after a summer of sniping between the two — lifted Republican hopes that the GOP was finally back in sync ahead of a brutal fall of fiscal deadlines.Not 24 hours later, the president cut a deal with Democrats on a short-term debt ceiling increase opposed by McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. Just Wednesday morning, in fact, Ryan had scoffed at the Democratic offer that Trump accepted minutes later. In the aftermath, Republicans seethed privately and distanced themselves publicly from the deal.
(Video) - Hillary Clinton said Thursday that she was devastated and drained after her loss to Donald Trump in 2016, but regained her strength by relying on a mix of prayer, yoga and “my fair share of Chardonnay.” Clinton, speaking at an event focused on her faith at New York’s Riverside Church, said she did not think she was going to lose heading into Election Day and was entirely thrown by the defeat. To get through it, Clinton said, she turned inward, relying on her “internal resources” and the support of her family and friends. (Snip) And, in a light moment, Clinton added, “Yes, I had my fair share of Chardonnay.”
The Trump Justice Department has once again cleared former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner of criminal liability stemming from the tea party targeting. In a letter to top Republicans, Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd said they re-reviewed the case and concluded there isn’t enough evidence to charge Ms. Lerner, who was at the center of the targeting. Mr. Boyd said the new review included lawyers who only recently joined the department and weren’t part of the Obama administration’s earlier decision. “After this process, the Department determined that reopening the investigation would not be
In an interview with Channel 4, a British public service television network, American actress Jennifer Lawrence blamed the recent hurricanes on Donald Trump’s voters, because they don´t believe in man-made climate change. During the lengthy interview on her new movie Mother!, the conversation turned political about halfway through. After discussing the alleged pay gap between men and women, the interviewer asked Lawrence about climate change and the political climate in America. “I mean when the director was asked about the film, why it was so dark, he said, ‘It’s a mad time to be alive.’ And there is certainly an
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has taken a ton of heat over the past few days for essentially claiming that the warnings over Hurricane Irma — a massive Category 5 storm heading right for Florida — were related to a broader “deep state” conspiracy to promote climate change, force people to buy bottled water and increase the news media’s ratings. During his radio program yesterday, Limbaugh remained defiant, claiming that media accusations that he was placing people in danger by spreading conspiracy theories were completely untrue. And yet, at the same time, he doubled down on what he previously had said,
Former Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Governor John Kasich expressed distaste in President Trump’s plan to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and invited all immigrants to come live in his state. Kasich was in a particularly fiery mood on CBS This Morning Wednesday, and when asked if he supports Trump’s decision, he laughed incredulously: “No! Can you imagine that we’re taking kids who came here, you know, they had nothing to do with the fact that they were brought here? They’ve become a very significant part of our society… and now we put them in jeopardy.” “We want them in
In the beginning of the 2016 presidential race, most conservatives like myself, had their own favorites and very few considered Donald Trump as one. Mine was Rick Perry followed by Marco Rubio once Gov. Perry dropped out. As the race proceeded and Trump continued to mow them all down, I was dismayed at how the debates seemed to be fixed by the GOP establishment and the media. Then a strange thing happened. I started listening to what Donald Trump was saying during his campaign. My brother Joe who was battling late stage cancer called me up one night speaking enthusiastically about how
Hillary Clinton has added another name her long list of grievances about those who cost her the election, this time singling out energized anti-Trump women marchers for failing to deliver before her historic loss. Clinton referenced the throngs of protesters who took the streets of Washington and other cities in a Women´s march shortly after his election. (Snip) Clinton also goes after NBC´s ´Today Show´ host Matt Lauer for his handling of a presidential forum, conducted on the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York last September. She writes that she was ´ticked off´ and ´almost physically sick´ by Lauer´s persistent focus
WASHINGTON — Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine says he does not know much about so-called members of “antifascist” (Antifa) groups but says it is unfair to paint them with a broad brush. When asked by The Daily Caller Thursday if Antifa should be considered a terrorist organization, Kaine replied: “I don’t like broad brushes and I don’t know enough about them to say that they’re terrorists but people who do violent things. The law should take care of them.” The Department of Homeland Security has called the activities of Antifa “domestic terrorist violence,” according to Politico. Kaine’s son, Linwood, was
(Video) - In her new memoir of the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton offers this analysis on why she lost: "I think it´s fair to say that I didn´t realize how quickly the ground was shifting under all our feet... I was running a traditional presidential campaign with carefully thought-out policies and painstakingly built coalitions, while Trump was running a reality TV show that expertly and relentlessly stoked Americans´ anger and resentment." Which is true. She ran a campaign larded with policy papers, with serious thoughts about serious things, with poll-tested stump speech lines designed to give some to everyone but all to no one.
Vanity Fair, which previously featured Melania Trump on one of its covers, snubbed the First Lady of the United States in its 2017 best-dressed list – while featuring numerous liberals, including both Obamas. The list, comprised of over 40 people, is broken into eight-sections: Women, Men, Hollywood, Originals, Couples, Professionals, Special Citation, and Hall Of Fame. Missing from the list was First Lady Melania Trump, which is odd to say the least, given that Vanity Fair featured her on the cover of the Mexican edition of the magazine in January.
