(Video) - The Department of Justice should consider prosecuting James Comey for his “improper” actions while serving as FBI director, the White House said Tuesday. Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, argued during the daily press briefing that Comey’s actions as FBI director “were improper and likely could have been illegal.” Asked if President Trump wants the Department of Justice to prosecute Comey, Sanders said that’s “something they should certainly look at.” Sanders said the former FBI director “politicized an investigation by signaling he would exonerate Hillary Clinton before he ever interviewed
Comments: Advice to Comey, who has trouble telling nothing but lies" Get a good lawyer, bodyguard, and safe house. Things get dicey when Hillary's name is tied to it.
FTA: “‘The president is proud of the decision that he made,’ Sanders said Tuesday. ‘The president was 100 percent right in firing James Comey. He knew at the time it could be bad for him politically, but he also knew and felt he had an obligation to do what was right.’ She added: ‘He’s very happy with the decision he’s made and I think he’s been fully vindicated.’”
My, my, my. Bannon certainly did a fine job baiting the enemedia hook during Old Charlie’s interview. By “revealing” he felt the Comey firing was a political mistake he knew the jackals would run to the WH looking for blood. Instead they get confidence in the decision and an opening to publicly throw the ball into DOJ’s court. I’m still holding my fire on Sessions’ seeming inaction in the belief that he is playing possum and luring the Deep State into a false sense of confidence, a la Hillary!. The DOJ is the center of the Deep State resistance and I believe the most difficult nest of vipers to clean out. I’m willing to be patient. Time will tell.
Swamps are major obstructions when laying new track but they can be dealt with in many ways. Draining is often the first choice of action, but sometimes its not feasible. Alternatives include bypassing around the muck, or building a trestle bridge over the mire. If the swamp cannot be destroyed it can be made irrelevant. The Trump Train will not be stopped.
President Trump has an aggressive game plan to corral senate support for tax reform, including repeated phone calls, golf outings, formal meetings and deploying Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner in a charm offensive. The president is determined to avoid a repeat of the fiasco of the Obamacare repeal when the bill fell short by a single Republican vote. With no room for error in the whip count when Republicans hold a thin 52-seat majority in the a 100-member chamber, Mr. Trump is going after a wide range of GOP senators (Snip) House Speaker Paul D. Ryan set a Thanksgiving deadline to get the tax reform package to a vote.
Malta’s government is offering an “unprecedented” reward of €1m (£890,000) for information about who killed a prominent investigative journalist with a car bomb. Authorities described the investigation into the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia, whose reporting on corruption targeted the Prime Minister and other senior political figures, as “a case of extraordinary importance which requires extraordinary measures”. The 53-year-old was killed last week when a remotely detonated bomb tore apart her car as she drove away from her home on the Mediterranean island. Prime Minister Joseph Muscat had told his
The body of a small child has been found during the search for a missing 3-year-old girl, Richardson police announced Sunday. Police said they had not yet confirmed that the body is that of Sherin Mathews, who has been missing since Oct. 7. Officers had blocked off an area near East Spring Valley and South Bowser roads, east of Central Expressway. The location is less than a mile from the girl´s home. Police indicated they have no reason to believe the body of a different child had been found, but they are still awaiting positive identification. The body was found in a culvert beneath a road about 11 a.m. Sunday.
George Will, so-called voice of the conservatives — but really, spokesman for the establishment of the Republican Party — slammed President Donald Trump on national television as an idiot. And he did it in that quasi-clever English style of feigning compliment while poking sarcastic fun. Gotta love the English sense of humor, right? This is GOP elitism, at its finest. Will was asked by MSNBC’s Chuck Todd about the ongoing media coverage of Trump’s treatment of veterans — a story that included the president’s supposed cavalier treatment of a widowed wife of a killed soldier, as well as Trump’s promised
The Senate on Thursday soundly rejected Sen. Rand Paul’s attempt to cut $43 billion in defense spending out of the 2018 budget plan, after he had pitched it as a way to try to rein in government spending even further. Mr. Paul’s amendment failed on a 5-95 vote, with GOP Sens. Steve Daines of Montana, Jeff Flake of Arizona, James Lankford of Oklahoma, and Mike Lee of Utah voting with Mr. Paul. “We have a $20 trillion debt - it’s about whether we’re serious about tackling that debt,” Mr. Paul said, saying leaders plan to “hide” the additional money in a special war fund to get around mandatory spending caps.
New York - Almost three-quarters of Americans fear the US is to become involved in a “major conflict” in the next few years, according to a new survey. Amid escalating tensions with North Korea over its aggressive missile tests and development of nuclear warheads, combined with sabre-rattling from Donald Trump, 72 per cent of the population fears the country will become embroiled in such a war within four years. Most people believe the greatest threat to the US is from North Korea, followed by Isis and Russia. Only two per cent of people believe Iran is the greatest threat.
A popular graduation tradition at California’s Camarillo High School is about to come to an end because – well – because the grownups who run the school district are morons. For as far back as anyone can remember graduates wore gowns reflecting the school colors. The guys wore navy blue gowns and the gals wore blue gowns. But that tradition just got deep-sixed for the sake of gender inclusivity – and now graduates will only be allowed to wear one color that represents all genders. (Snip) “It is not about gender equality as much as it is about being respectful to everybody’s choice to select a gender or not to select a gender,
The Pussycat Dolls is denying claims by former member Kaya Jones that the all-girl musical act operated like a “prostitution ring” and victimized young women. In a series of recent tweets, Ms. Jones, an outspoken conservative and President Trump supporter, joined the chorus of women who have come forward alleging rampant sexual harassment and misconduct in the entertainment industry. (Snip) “To be apart of the team you must be a team player.Meaning sleep with whoever they say.If you dont they have nothing on you to leverage,” she continued. “Yes I said leverage. Meaning after they turn you out or get
Actress Alyssa Milano today said the chorus of millions of women who have come forward with their allegations of sexual abuse and harassment using the "me too" hashtag is not going to be silenced anytime soon. "We are going to be vocal until this stops," Milano, 44, said in an exclusive interview on "Good Morning America." "Not one more. It stops here." Milano, a mother of two, (Snip) Milano called herself a "vessel" for the millions of women and men now publicly acknowledging they have faced sexual abuse or harassment. She said it is her mission to make sure the movement becomes more than just a hashtag.
Washington - The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits fell to its lowest level in more than 44 years last week, pointing to a rebound in job growth after a hurricane-related decline in employment in September. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 22,000 to a seasonally adjusted 222,000 for the week ended Oct. 14, the lowest level since March 1973, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Data for the prior week was revised to show 1,000 more applications received than previously reported. The decrease in claims was the largest since April and was probably exaggerated by the Columbus Day
(Video) - Beijing - China has called on the US to "abandon its prejudices" after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson claimed Beijing was subverting the global order and pursuing predatory economic policies. (Snip) Speaking Wednesday at a forum for US-India ties, Tillerson said Beijing's "provocative actions in the South China Sea directly challenge the international law and norms that the United States and India both stand for." China has reclaimed a large amount of land in the disputed waters of the South China Sea, turning reefs into military bases in defiance of an international court ruling. Lu said the country would
Washington - US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson promised India a new century of “strategic partnership” on Wednesday, accusing its Asian rival China of undermining international order. (Snip) But his harshest words were for China, the Asian economic behemoth and the nearest rival to India’s huge population and the United States’ still world-leading economy. “China, while rising alongside India, has done so less responsibly, at times undermining the international, rules-based order,” Tillerson chided. “China’s provocative actions in the South China Sea directly challenge the international law and norms that the United States and India
Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan, is whining that the US treated him worse than the Taliban. The 31-year-old sergeant told British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview reported in The Sunday Times of London: “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat.’ ” That got him less upset than the “administrative duties” the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said. “Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for
Actor Tom Hanks is blasting President Trump for his handling of a phone call to the widow of a fallen U.S. soldier, calling it “one of the biggest c**k-ups on the planet Earth.” "I´m only knowing what I read in the newspapers and what have you, and it just seems like it´s one of the biggest c**k-ups on the planet Earth, if you ask me," Hanks said in an interview with CNN. "This is a tragedy of the utmost consequence and it goes much longer beyond who´s going to come out on top of the news story. I think it´s
Perhaps as startling as the revelation that the FBI was investigating the Hillary Clinton/Russia/Uranium One collusion and that key figures like Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe knew about it and said nothing, is the refusal by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to remove the non-disclosure agreement gag order on the FBI informant who arguably could put Bill and Hillary Clinton and a few others in federal prison. It was said the Jeff Sessions recused himself from all things Russian because of election campaign conflicts but is it really because he thought it
Freelance reporter and political consultant Michael J. Hout tweeted a photo of Hillary Clinton using forearm crutches during a visit to Yale Law School Saturday. Clinton’s use of the walking aide comes after breaking her toe during a UK book tour to promote “What Happened.” Clinton visited her alma mater on the same day she held a book signing event at the Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore in Middletown, CT. The bookstore had strict guidelines for book signing attendees — “She will sign a maximum of two books for each attendee and will not personalize books,” posted Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore
Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has completed his one-week sex rehab program. A psychologist taking part in his treatment told TMZ that Weinstein would remain in Arizona for a month or so after his week of outpatient ´intensive therapy´ ends on Saturday. Weinstein was ´invested in the program´ and had focused on ´dealing with his anger, his attitude toward others, boundary work and the beginnings of work on empathy,´ the psychologist told the outlet with Weinstein´s permission. The psychologist downplayed previous reports that the 65-year-old film producer had fallen asleep in group sessions and ranted about conspiracy theories. ´He showed up for all the
Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By
Barack Obama claimed at a campaign rally on Thursday for Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam that “democracy is at stake” in the Virginia governor’s race. Obama took to his first day back on the campaign trail to lament the way politics has turned “nasty,” and yet Obama melodramatically argued that Virginians need to vote for Democrat Ralph Northam because “democracy is at stake.” Obama told the Virginia audience, “America is a story of progress. Ralph Northam wants progress. He wants to take us forward, not backward. He wants to reach out for hope, not fear. We need you to
Former Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday criticized President Donald Trump´s policies, warning that he risks driving Iran towards nuclear proliferation and worsening a standoff with North Korea if he ends the nuclear deal with Iran. “If you want to negotiate with (North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un, and your goal is to avoid war and try to be able to have a diplomatic resolution, the worst thing you can do is first threaten to destroy his country in the United Nations,” Kerry said in a private lecture delivered at Geneva’s Graduate Institute, according to Reuters. “And secondly, screw around with
WASHINGTON – Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron said President Trump declared war on the press but the media is not at war with him, despite the “hostile” environment that’s been created. “The president on his first day in office went to the CIA headquarters and he said, I have a war with the press. The reality is we don’t have a war with him: we are not at war, we are at work. We are doing our jobs every day the same way we have always done it. You talk about fact-checking; we’ve had a fact-checker at the Washington
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is no fan of President Donald J. Trump, but at a recent awards gala for LGBT youth, the bombastic Democrat made a disturbing claim that she would “take Trump out.” Kyle Olson of the American Mirror reported the statement on Friday, but Youtube pulled down the original video. At the Ali Forney Center gala in New York City, Waters jumped right into the liberal audience’s applause by making the off putting, only a mere four months after multiple Republican members of Congress were gunned down by a democrat mad-man who actually wanted to take them out.
n Monday, Sen. John McCain denounced President Trump’s philosophy, agenda, and conduct. On Thursday, former President George W. Bush did the same thing. Neither mentioned Trump by name, but their target was clear. They echoed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who spoke out against Trump last year. These three indictments, issued by the men who represented the GOP in the four elections leading up to Trump’s, are more than ghosts of a dead party. They point toward an alternative vision of conservatism. Staff has corrected mispelled byline.
A plan to quadruple the size of the Alamo with a major restoration project has been attacked by conservatives over worries its history will be sanitized. At a time when Confederate statues are being removed across the country, some Texans are fearing the battle site will become the latest victim of ´political correctness´. Land Commissioner George P. Bush - son of former Florida governor Jeb - is overseeing a 7-year revamp of the shrine where 189 Texas independence fighters were killed by Mexican Gen. Santa Anna´s troops in 1836. The site´s size would quadruple after excavation and restoration of historical
