Compromised? Wonder if that was the reason all his bluster about Benghazi went nowhere? The unmasking during the 0bama admin probably played a huge part. I guess we will find out shortly.

Has the intelligence committee given heads up to those previously caught up in the spying?

Gowdy has made a lot of noise, but so far has been unable to really penalize the “Swamp” in any meaningful way. Leading to the thought that that Gowdy may in fact be an under the covers “Swamp” dweller himself.

How Much Did The Media Cover Pro-Life
Student Walkout Vs. Gun Control Walkout?
Daily Wire, by Paul Bois    Original Article

Last week, pro-life students across the country walked out of their classrooms in protest of the war on unborn children. But you wouldn´t know it because the media stonewalled them, unlike the pro-gun control students who received wall-to-wall glowing coverage during their anti-gun walkouts. According to LifeSiteNews, during the protest last Wednesday, the "three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) never once mentioned the pro-life walkout during their news shows on the night of the event." Compare that to the more than 10 minutes that networks devoted to the pro-gun control National School Walkout Day. In total, the networks covered the

Acrimony between the FBI and Department of Justice was so bad in the waning days of the Obama Administration some agents quit the bureau, a former G-man said. Feuds over the direction of investigations — and particularly some of the high-profile politically-involved probes — began to build up as the 2016 election approached, and as the FBI felt pressure from its political masters at the department. Agents in field offices did not trust department lawyers they viewed as Washington bureaucrats, while the department’s headquarters, known in the business as Main Justice, felt rank-and-file agents weren’t following orders and, at times,

Harvard Professor and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz slammed the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) on “Fox & Friends” Monday for neglecting the fight for civil liberties and bowing to a political agenda.“If this were Hillary Clinton they’d be raising money left and right defending Hillary Clinton’s right,” Dershowitz said. “But now they’re raising money left and left, attacking Trump and putting the attack on Trump over defending our civil liberties.

Former FBI director James Comey reveals in his book that then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper led an intelligence briefing with President Barack Obama about the unverified Michael Steele dossier. Comey told ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos that Clapper presented the Steele dossier to Obama as “sufficiently reliable” coming from “a reliable source.” The briefing took place on January 5th in the Oval Office, before Trump was ingratiated and included Obama and his national security team as well as Vice President Joe Biden. “It was sufficiently reliable that we thought it oughta be part of the entire report,” Comey said

Meghan McCain warned former FBI Director James Comey that he better be prepared for his interview with “The View” ladies later this week. “We’re all gonna filet you,” warned McCain, a co-host of the talk show. Comey is set to appear on the ABC show on Wednesday as part of his media blitz to promote his book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership.” Comey’s first television interview ahead of the book’s Tuesday release aired Sunday, in which he called President Trump “morally unfit” to be the commander in chief.

ABC’s Sunday night interview with James Comey earned the network a ratings boost, yet fewer people watched the former FBI director’s conversation with George Stephanopoulos than both the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards and “60 Minutes” sit-down with Stormy Daniels the previous month. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC “averaged 9.8 million viewers and a 2.4 rating” in the A25-54 demographic. Conversely, the 2018 AMCs, which aired on CBS, averaged 12.08 million. CBS’ Stormy Daniels interview more than doubled Comey’s numbers, and its 24.5 million viewer average was 60 Minutes’ highest rated episode in the past 10 years. During

EXCLUSIVE: The Hillary Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee allegedly used state chapters as strawmen to launder as much as $84 million in an effort to circumvent campaign donation limits, and the Federal Election Commission ignored complaints exposing the practice, a lawsuit filed Monday claims. The Committee to Defend the President (CDP), a political action committee formally known as Stop Hillary PAC, filed its complaint with the FEC in December 2017 with the claims that the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) solicited cash from big-name donors, and allegedly sent that money through state chapters and back to the DNC before

California’s terrible commuter rail service speeds and on-time performance are growing worse, due to homeless camps near the tracks and transients wandering on the rails. The Sacramento Bee reports that train engineers are warning system operators and passengers that homeless people wandering on the rails have been hit, and engineers have been forced to slow and make high-speed emergency stops to avoid hitting transients. But even with Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor passenger service, which operates between Sacramento and Silicon Valley, combining with the Union Pacific Railroad freight service on adjacent tracks to report homeless encampments to law enforcement, California’s homeless have

As unpopular as Donald Trump is, as much as he´s hated by Democrats, and as much as he is a target of the media, the president may well win a second term in 2020. Why? Polls show that the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 is former vice president Joe Biden. Biden has been running for president since at least 1988. He will be a few days short of 78 years old on election day in 2020. That he is the frontrunner says a lot about the Democratic Party, even in the age of Trump. Politico: What

The body count is staggering. In my 43 years as a journalist, armies of trained bloodhounds have been run out of newsrooms where I´ve worked, victims of layoffs, and buyouts, and battle fatigue. I´ve lost so many hundreds of colleagues, I can´t keep track of where they ended up. These were smart, curious reporters, photographers and editors who told stories that defined place and time and made us all know each other a little better. They covered the arts and the local sports teams. They bird-dogged city councils, courts, law enforcement, school districts and other agencies that spend our tax dollars, bearing
