The Republicans’ Fake Investigations
New York Times, by Glenn R. Simpson and Peter Fritsch

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/3/2018 1:59:28 PM

A generation ago, Republicans sought to protect President Richard Nixon by urging the Senate Watergate committee to look at supposed wrongdoing by Democrats in previous elections. The committee chairman, Sam Ervin, a Democrat, said that would be “as foolish as the man who went bear hunting and stopped to chase rabbits.” Today, amid a growing criminal inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, congressional Republicans are again chasing rabbits. We know because we’re their favorite quarry. In the year since the publication of the so-called Steele dossier — the collection of intelligence reports we commissioned about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia

Comments:
Self-serving diversionary tactic from FusionGPS’s Simpson and Fritsch. In an article posted just down the page, Sundance talks about them and this article.

Exactly the sort of propaganda that might have come out of Pravda during the Soviet years.

If the Democrats´ use of the federal law enforcement powers to surveil and harass their political opponents is like Watergate (and it´s worse; Nixon just thought about using some of that power), Simpson & Fritsch are the "plumbers."

NYT = lies, always.

They are getting desperate, their coup plotters are being uncovered, they are starting to see that the Trump collusion lie isn´t working even as well as the MMGW lie, and they are nearing hysteria.

When the top thugs at DoJ and FBI are indicted, they will REALLY freak out. Fasten your seatbelts and be sure to ignore the lies that they will be shrieking.

Andrew McCabe swipes at James
Comey: He´s not telling the truth
Washington Examiner, by Kelly Cohen    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 4/19/2018 8:12:37     Post Reply
Andrew McCabe — who was fired as FBI deputy director last month — hit back at former FBI Director James Comey, saying he was not telling the truth in an interview earlier Wednesday. “Comey has relied on the accuracy and the soundness of the Office of the Inspector General´s (OIG) conclusions in their report on Mr. McCabe. In fact, the report fails to adequately address the evidence (including sworn testimony) and documents that prove that Mr. McCabe advised Director Comey repeatedly that he was working with the Wall Street Journal on the stories in question prior to publication,” said Michael Bromwich,

Former FBI Director James Comey said in a wide-ranging CNN interview Thursday that he could potentially be a witness against the FBI´s former number two. His comments on CNN´s "The Lead with Jake Tapper" came after CNN reported that the Justice Department´s inspector general referred its findings on Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director, to the US attorney´s office in Washington for possible criminal charges associated with lying to internal investigators. Asked if he could end up being a witness, Comey said, "Potentially." "Sure, given that the IG´s report reflects interactions that Andy McCabe had with me and other

The Justice Department on Thursday turned over to congressional committees a closely guarded set of memos that former FBI Director James Comey wrote recounting his conversations with President Donald Trump. In a letter to three top Republican House chairmen, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd said the department decided to provide lawmakers with the memos now because of "unusual events occurring since the previous limited disclosure." "The Department has consulted the relevant parties and concluded that the release of the memoranda to Congress at this time would not adversely impact any ongoing investigation or other confidentiality interests of the Executive Branch,"

Stormy Fail: Trump’s Evangelical
Support Hits Record High

A poll by the Public Religion Research Institute shows that support for President Trump among white evangelicals has hit a record high of 75 percent. Only 22 percent view the president unfavorably. The Hill reports that the “president’s favorability with white evangelicals in the poll has steadily risen over time, with his previous high being at 74 percent in February 2017.” At one point this year, though, that number sat at just 68 percent. In this same poll, among the general public, Trump’s job approval number sits at 42 percent, a five point jump since January. One key take away from this poll is

A German extremist with links to Sept. 11 ringleader Mohamed Atta and other attackers has been detained in Syria, the AFP news agency reported late Wednesday.“Mohammed Haydar Zammar has been arrested by Kurdish security forces in northern Syria and is now being interrogated,” AFP quoted a Kurdish military commander as saying.

Germany´s Bild newspaper reported that Zammar had been captured by the Kurdish People´s Defense Forces, which is among the militias allied with the U.S.-led coalition fighting ISIS in northern Syria.

House punishes Memphis for removing
Confederate statues with $250,000
budget cut
Commercial Appeal [Memphis, TN], by Joel Ebert and Jordan Buie    Original Article

House lawmakers on Tuesday approved a last-minute amendment to remove $250,000 allocated to the city of Memphis as punishment for the removal of Confederate monuments. The amendment, which was approved with a 56-31 vote, was introduced as a result of Memphis officials’ decision to remove two controversial statues on public property last year. After being denied a waiver by the state Historical Commission to remove the statues, Memphis sold two public parks in December to a nonprofit, which then removed statues of Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest and Confederate President Jefferson Davis.Rep. Steve McDaniel, R-Parkers Crossroads, who has been an

American Pravda Wins Pulitzer

The New York Times just won a Pulitzer Prize for “public service.” I’ve never met this “public” to whom the New York Times has provided some great service.(Snip) The days of the New York Times as a reliable, salient, or sane source of news have passed. It exists now as an ideological apparatus of the progressive state, shilling for the hard-Left and the bureaucrats who pander to them. It is least of all doing good work for the public. A look back at one of their worst propaganda pieces in recent history is instructive, not only on the sad state of

(Snip)Trump has threatened to use other measures, such as slapping import tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum, to gain leverage over Mexico and Canada in the NAFTA talks.

Former FBI Director James B. Comey said Wednesday that he no longer considers himself a Republican. “I just think they’ve lost their way, and I can’t be associated with it,” Mr. Comey said on ABC News podcast “Start Here.” Mr. Comey attributed the change in the party to the 2016 election and said that after he was fired, he started to become more politically aware. He has been a lifelong Republican and said that in today’s party, the only Republican he does respect is former 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney. He called Mr. Romney, who is running for the open Senate seat in Utah, a “person of principle and honor.”

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.

(Video) - Former Playboy model Karen McDougal is now free to discuss her alleged affair with President Trump, after reaching an agreement with the tabloid company that had prohibited her from speaking, according to McDougal. McDougal said she is "relieved to be able to tell the truth" about her story. McDougal, who alleges she had a sexual relationship with Mr. Trump over 10 months in 2006 and 2007, had sued over the $150,000 contract she had with American Media, Inc., the company that owns The National Enquirer, for keeping her from speaking about it.

Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are building a swimming pool at their home in an exclusive neighborhood of Washington DC. The 44th president and his family purchased the the 8,200 sq ft mansion in the Kalorama area of the capital in 2017 for $8.1million having initially rented the property. Plans are now afoot for a new swimming pool in the grounds, according to TMZ, which says it has seen building permits. The permit application process started in January, the website reports, and there have been a number of reviews about electrics and plumbing in recent months. Last year, it

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, was featured on at least thirty

University of Michigan Professor Sarah Ensor published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants. Originally highlighted by the Twitter account New Real Peer Review, Ensor’s journal article explores the field of “ecosexuality,” a term which means the sexual relationship between humans and plants. Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth. Ensor, an English professor at the University of Michigan, begins by citing the “Ecosex Manifesto,” which

Congress may ban the slaughter of cats and dogs to sell as meat or for human consumption and punish offenses with a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. The House Committee on Agriculture approved by voice vote an amendment to the farm bill Wednesday that would make all sales of domesticated canines and felines illegal, Politico reported. “Adopting this policy signals that the United States will not tolerate the disturbing practice in our country,” California Republican Rep.

President Donald Trump’s tax cuts will be anything but for about 1 million California taxpayers who will owe Uncle Sam more money a year from now. They’re the Californians who will lose a collective $12 billion because the new law caps a deduction they have been able to take for paying their state and local taxes, according to a new analysis by the Franchise Tax Board.
