Robert Mueller has the heart of a Las Vegas hooker and the guile of a New Orleans stripper. Not to push the metaphor too far, he’s skilled at showing a little skin in a cloud of satin and lace, but never quite comes across with what the customer is paying for. Mr. Mueller, held up by his fellow Blackstones as a model of lawyerly rectitude, teased everyone last week that after testing his prowess to the limit, he had hooked a mighty tuna. His hallelujah chorus in the media celebrated the hundred-pound monster, but overnight it melted into a two-inch goldfish. The
What an abuse of power by Mueller! How much of our money has he spent so far on his fishing expedition? I have never seen a President treated so poorly as President Trump. I guess that´s what happens when the swamp gets drained - panic sets in with both parties. Disgusting.
"The president’s lawyers could be challenging subpoenas, and who are called as witnesses."
That may be ...legally. But we all know Trump isn´t allowed to challenge anything or he looks guilty! I think they are so sure he has done nothing wrong, they are letting Mueller have enough rope to hang himself. And who knows.. with all the negativity coming out against his buddy, Comey, and the FBI, he better show some real crimes or shut it down.
BTW... who does Mueller answer to? Rosenstein? Does Sessions have no jurisdiction over anything to do with the recent news about the FBI? He could at least make sure everything is turned over to Nunes and his committee!! Stop the stonewalling!
Wes Pruden is right, but now Mueller is going after the Deutsche Bank/Trump relationship. This witch hunt will NEVER stop until they get Trump, or this unlawful assault is ended. I can´t believe what we are witnessing. Truly sickening.
FTA...Russian efforts to swing the 2016 presidential election against Hillary Clinton.
If anyone on the left had any common sense they would ask themselves why in the world the Russians would have preferred Trump over Illary and then, if they were honest, (Ha!) they would realize that it’s quite the reverse.
Illary is completely buyable and blackmailable. She would have been a marionette with Putin controlling the strings every minute of every day.
Does anyone believe that Putin didn’t hack into an email account with the url of clintonemail.com? Does anyone believe that he doesn’t have the 33,000 bleach bit (under subpoena) emails? Does anyone doubt that he would have used them against her?
But then, the left operates on feelings, greed, power envy and evil. Not logic.
Note the look on Lerch, ahem, Mueller´s face when out in public. It is a look of being shifty, cat ate the canary, how long am I going to be allowed to get away with this? That Richard KNOWS what he is doing is wrong. It reminds of the tennis match-type darting of Bill Clinton´s eyes during his questioning when he said, "depends on what the meaning of is, is". There is going to be a day or reckoning for these democrat miscreants, one day when this witch hunt is finally over. It´s going to get really ugly when the tables turn and turn they will. The democrat apparatchiks will scurry off, being the rats they are. ´ can run but they can´t hide. They should all be: fired, banned from any further government, "service", and have their pensions terminated, go to jail. They are severely abusing our system of laws, checks and balances, wasting LOTS of taxpayer dollars. And it´s all because Hillary won´t accept the results of the 2016 election.
The evening of the day that Sessions recused himself - President Trump should have fired him. And then Rosenstein. Did not anyone advise Pres Trump NOT to appoint any one with any association with the Obama Administration - regardless of how much they were said to be non-partisan?
Now he has asked about PDT´s financial details from Deutche Bank. Loan applications contain a vast amount of confidential information which a lender might need. It is given with an understanding of strict confidentiality. What authority does Mueller have in the matter anyway?
Trump´s biggest mistakes...not firing Sessions, Rosenstein & McCabe. One big set up...Comey informed Trump about Flynn, Comey reports Trump to ?, Rosenstein requests Comey be fired, Comey brags he created this special council, Rosenstein steps in & pushes Sessions & Nunes out & places McCabe in! It´s absolutely amazing what dems will do to protect Hillary & Obama while republicans sit with thier thumbs in their mouths. Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein & McCabe are best democrat buddies. All this to destroy Trump & it´s making him stronger & more popular with his base.
I remember how Democrats and the msm treated Ken Starr. He was destroyed and completely trashed by the Democrats and msm. So much so that his report was just dismissed. Turn the tables and what do the Republicans do? Do they point out what a partisan Democrat hack Mueller is? No of course not they preen before the msm about Mueller´s integrity, honesty, independence and how they want to protect him and his witch hunt BS investigation. I´m beginning to loathe the Republicans in Congress almost as much as the msm.
#11 – “Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein & McCabe are best democrat buddies. All this to destroy Trump & it´s making him stronger & more popular with his base.”
You have hit on the crux of the matter; the Deep State is using every weapon in its arsenal and instead of raining destruction on President Trump they are invigorating his supporters. It is a corundum for the armchair presidents who think The Donald doesn’t perceive the dangers and instruct him do this or that, usually an action based on last century’s obsolete political paradigm.
I make no claim to understand Our President’s exact battle plans, but I know he has them and they are solid gold. His past performance of the last two years is enough for me to trust his intellect, his experience, and his verve to guide our country back to the rule of law and Constitutional governance. He is a master at asymmetrical political warfare and has outflanked our enemies at every turn, and always just when they think they’ve cornered The Lion the trap springs on themselves. It’s not necessary for the privates in the Army of the Deplorables to be privy to the strategies of the Commander in Chief in order to follow his tactical examples and implement the same within their theater of operation.
To paraphrase Melanie Wilkes when Rhett brought home the wounded Ashley, this is not the first time Donald Trump has stood between me and disaster and I will not question any devise of his.
It’s like this – Trump knows that this investigation into his behavior will find nothing because he has done nothing wrong. Even if they find a record of six phone calls to Putin he will have done nothing illegal because he was a private citizen before his inauguration. When this sham is over, people will be laughing and throwing pies at all of these dummies, Sessions included. Would you rather the investigators in the spotlight be Obama boot-lickers or qualified people? Next time the FBI accuses anybody of lying to them they are going to be met with laughter and jeers. They have lost any sense of honor and integrity they may have had. The only way they can come close to regaining any pride would be to haul Hillary and Barry off to Leavenworth. Then we’ll know we have serious law enforcement again.
The Dishonorable Mueller III´s life needs to be investigated same as what he did to Flynn, Manafort, and the President. Mueller the corrupt gum shoes and his hoods all need to be shown for what they are: partisan trash, if not downright traitors!
President Donald Trump strongly backed Republican Roy Moore to win the U.S. Senate seat in Alabama vacated earlier this year by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Tonight in a special election, Moore lost that race to Doug Jones, who is the first Democrat to be elected to the Senate since 1992. Trump issued a congratulatory response to Jones´ victory on Twitter late Tuesday night. Donald J. Trump ? @realDonaldTrump Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at
I might as well get into the “hot take” game. Democrats and their media echo chamber will openly celebrate Doug Jones’s narrow win in Alabama, but inside I’ll bet they are actually disappointed. There is little chance they can hold this seat in 2020 (unless Republicans nominate Roy Moore again). Meanwhile, Jones deprives them of their favorite talking point that Republicans are all drooling knuckle-dragging morons. Worse, it means Al Franken will likely have to go through with his resignation after all. I’d bet money that a polygraph examination would reveal that Franken was secretly hoping for a Moore victory.
Democratic representative Bobby Rush is being sued for $1 million after failing to make payments on a loan he received for a church he founded in his home district in Illinois. A wellness center linked to the church has also collected more than $2.6 million in taxpayer-funded government grants in 2017 and more than $17 million in grants since 2008, according to records. Rush founded the Beloved Community Christian Church, a nondenominational Christian church, in Chicago in 2002 with the intent of helping disadvantaged people in his community. "I founded a church in Englewood, one of Chicago´s poorest and most
That was some resignation, the Al Franken speech at the Senate the other day. As he spoke, all we heard was “I didn’t do nothin’ — and, besides, you can’t prove it!” Some of the accusers, he asserted, were outright liars. As for the others — in so many words, it came down to: “Well, they say I grabbed them by the tush and squeezed as tightly as their available epidermis and subcutaneous adipose tissue allowed, or stuck my probing tongue into their mouths and swirled it around inside, saliva and all, like finishing off the last drippings of a
About 10 years ago, at the after-party for a wine auction in New Orleans, a woman in her 20s walked up to Mario Batali to introduce herself. As a chef, she was excited to meet one of the most revered figures in the restaurant industry. When they started talking, she recalls, she realized that he’d been drinking and he became what she characterized as “creepy” — “just giving me this provocative, icky feeling.” Minutes into their conversation, she recalls, he told her, “Come work for me, I’ll pay you double what you’re making.” Moments later, someone bumped her glass, spilling wine
Have you noticed that if you fail to do, think, and vote exactly the way that the liberals and their Fredocon minions demand, you’re a racist, sexist, homophobic, child molesting, greedy, NRA terrorist determined to murder kids? Yeah, you probably have. And you’ve probably also realized that if you do everything that the liberals and their Never Trump minions demand, you’re still a racist, sexist, homophobic, child molesting, greedy, NRA terrorist determined to murder kids. When you understand that, you’re on your way to being conservative woke. And when you’re conservative woke, you’re ready to deploy the most powerful non-bullet
ABOARD A MILITARY AIRCRAFT — With the State Department in upheaval, and the president focused on "America First" domestic concerns, what diplomacy and foreign policy the White House is successfully exercising have fallen more and more to one man, retired Marine Gen. James Mattis. During a just concluded tour of Pakistan, Egypt, Kuwait, and Jordan, the Defense secretary sounded much more like the country´s chief diplomat than its top soldier. When talking to reporters during his trip, he stressed that U.S. foreign policy is not "myopically military only." He repeatedly used phrases like "rebuilding trust," "de-escalating tensions," "continued dialogue," "objectives of reconciliation,"
If Alabama voters choose Republican Roy Moore for the U.S. Senate in Tuesday’s special election, it won’t be the first time in the modern era that voters have sent to Congress a man dogged by a teen sex scandal. Massachusetts voters stood by Democratic Rep. Gerry Studds even after he was censured by the House in 1983 for his sexual relationship at age 36 with a 17-year-old male congressional page, as well as making sexual advances toward two other teenage pages. Far from dooming the Democratic Party, the episode barely registered at the ballot box. Democrats kept their House majority and gained
The sexual harassment hysteria that shifted with such convenient alacrity from the entertainment industry and the news media to Capitol Hill has nothing to do with protecting women, “rape culture,” or radical feminism. It isn’t even about destroying President Trump, though his downfall is ever a consummation devoutly to be wished by the left. #MeToo, in its partisan permutation, is instead a movement cynically co-opted by Democrats desperately seeking an issue — any issue — that will save them from disaster in next year’s midterms. Its only goal is to save “the party of Jefferson and Jackson” from annihilation in
If someone had asked me back in the day, if, in 2017, we’d be having a discussion about whether a fundamentalist baker should be forced by the law to create a wedding cake for a gay couple, I’d have been gobsmacked, as the Brits say. Smacked in the gob because only a decade ago such a question would have seemed so remotely hypothetical as to be absurd. And yet, here we are. A Christian baker has taken a stand on the grounds of religious conscience and artistic freedom not to provide a cake specifically designed for a legal, constitutional same-sex
If Tuesday’s oral argument is any indication, the year-long anticipation for the Masterpiece Cakeshop Supreme Court showdown will result in a narrow opinion that provides little clarity in the continuing conflict between culture and religious liberty. By now the basics are well-known: When a homosexual couple asked Jack Phillips, the owner of the Colorado-based Masterpiece Cakeshop, to design a wedding cake for them, Phillips informed the pair that he could not, in conscience, create a cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage. The men filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division, claiming Masterpiece Cakeshop “discriminated against them in a place
Al Franken’s resignation speech on Thursday seemed less heartfelt than grudging. He cast it not as an act of atonement — he continues to deny the charges largely and acknowledged through his stifled rage that his previous quasi-apologies had hastened his demise — but a reluctant act of gallantry. He was submitting docilely to the “broader conversation” on sexual harassment, he said, while signaling that his replacement, to whom he referred as “her,” would be a female pol embodying that conversation. The speech followed the usual pattern of lying pols: I didn’t do it, I’m only quitting because I am a
DEVELOPING…Democrat Doug Jones has defeated Roy Moore in Alabama’s Senate election, according to a projection from the Fox News Decision Desk.ORIGINAL STORY…The hard-fought Alabama Senate race between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones remains too close to call, though a Fox News voter analysis shows the Democratic nominee enjoying a lead over his GOP rival. Jones’ competitiveness is a remarkable development in a deep red state that reflects just how badly Moore has been hurt by a sex scandal. But the race is still fluid. With 87 percent of precincts reporting, Jones and Moore both had 49.2 percent, according to
On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski argued President Trump’s tweet about Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) constitutes sexual harassment and that people who work around the president and don’t try to get him to delete the tweet don’t care about the country or women. Brzezinski said, “I just want to say something, beyond the fact that it is reprehensible that the president of the United States would say something so derogatory and disgusting about a woman, we’re not surprised, Mr. President. You do it all the time. You treat women terribly, and you treat the women around
The family of the alleged ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were “heartbroken” by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family,” said the statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. “But we’re also outraged by the behavior of the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the
President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”
On Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour President Donald Trump should resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”
A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump´s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson´s policies. Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford´s letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority, and shows disdain for the State Department´s diplomatic work. "I have deep respect for the career Foreign and Civil Service staff who, despite the stinging disrespect this Administration has shown our profession, continue the struggle to keep our foreign policy on the positive
Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner. She’s an American, and
Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused
The rules of interaction between women and men in the workplace have been changed with a suddenness that inevitably produces unforeseen negative consequences, no matter how positive and necessary the switch might be. (snip) With the stakes so high, given the presumption of female veracity and male culpability anytime an objection is raised, men are, frankly, terrified. Get used to it, ladies. That is the other side of the coin of the new normal. The old norms that men (often cluelessly) incorporated into their behavior now have been discarded, but we have no clear understanding of what should replace them. By
Several women who have accused US President Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment were expected Monday to call on Congress to open an investigation. A press conference by the women will be hosted by Brave New Films, a media company that recently produced a clip detailing sexual harassment or assault claims by 16 women against Trump. A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies. During Trump’s presidential campaign, more than
A suspect is in custody following an explosion at one of New York City’s busiest transit hubs in Times Square during Monday morning’s rush hour, police said. The bombing suspect was identified as Akayed Ullah, 27, according to New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill. Ullah had an explosive device strapped to his body, O’Neill said. What do we know about the suspect? Law enforcement sources told Fox News Ullah lives in Brooklyn. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the explosion was an “attempted terrorist attack.” Sources told the Associated Press that Ullah may be of Bangladeshi descent. What else do we know about the
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.” “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.” Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you´re picking a fight with? Good
