It’s all downhill for Comey now
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 4/15/2018 8:37:29 AM

The day that James Comey cashed the multi-million dollar advance check from MacMillan Publishers will turn out to mark the date that we can call “Peak Comey.” It was all downhill from the instant the ink started drying on his signature on the back of the check. He and his ghost writer suddenly faced the unenviable task of making him look like the righteous warrior he had always portended to be, but with the need to fill 300 pages with something. Self-serving rationalizations can’t sustain reader interest over that many words, so apparently they decided that prose about physical appearances

Now he’ll be slamming his ghost writer. As though that person never consulted with Comey about what he was writing. Comey never read drafts. Bla bla bla….

Slightly off topic but I believe that the reason why Paul Ryan is not running for re-election is because he has an accepted an offer to join Mueller’s team of Democrat investigators. Will allow Mueller to claim that his sham investigation is non-partisan and for Ryan to get perverse GOPe joy by day continuing to undermine Trump.

As to James Clowney, as long as he attacks PDT he’ll be a hero to Democrats. If he is truthful about Obama, Holder & Lynch, he’ll be labeled a racist and enemy of the Deep State.

The more excerpts I see, the more it´s clear to me that this book is actually Comey´s "botched seppuku by confessional writing"...a ritual suicide that doesn´t quite succeed. And instead of gaining the admiration he sought for his self-sacrifice, he instead earns (rightfully) an immortality of endless contempt and ridicule.

Simultaneously pitiful and hilarious. (But mostly the latter.)

Given how ham-fisted this book turned out to be, it´s a wonder that they ever allowed this stunted adolescent to play with guns. How he managed to avoid shooting his eye out I´ll never know.

MacMillan advanced a multi-million dollar check for such a book?? How is that different from the DNC paying for "dirt" on our president? It worries me that MacMillan is a major publisher of textbooks for our children.

Publisher payouts to the politically connected authors of upcoming books are really campaign contributions and should be considered so by the regulatory agencies.

It appears that Comey´s only value is to be a gadfly to Trump and considering the idiocy of his writing effort and the apparent lack of zing to his television interview, that "value" is minimal.

I wonder if the IG is going to zing Comey. It seems inevitable that the head of the FBI is ultimately responsible for the serious deficiencies of the agency at least, plus his own personal questionable actions. As soon as his credibility crashes, Comey is going to find himself a very lonely man. The only one impressed with the man is Comey himself.

Shed a tear for the lawyers who must read through this book to find material for cross examining Comey. It would be a delicious irony if something in this book became decisive in undermining the Mueller attack on Trump.

Progressive professors behaving badly
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/19/2018 9:09:50     Post Reply
Two professors, one in California and one in New Jersey, are reportedly under investigation by their employers for behavior that at a minimum is rude and arrogant, and which, some hope, could cost them their jobs. I believe that both are exemplars of the moral hazard that accompanies the exalted status accorded professors, often aggravated by the practice of granting tenure. (snip) a political monoculture of extreme progressivism exists on most campuses, at odds with the broader culture of the country, creating an adversarial mindset and preventing any serious open reflection on the flaws in that monoculture.

Former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey isn´t quite the book bonanza he´s been touted as. His book opening shows it. And, well, look at the book he´s selling: with little more than florid descriptions to speak for his otherwise content-free book, and no big revelations, what we get from it is that he has a high opinion of himself, he´s mad about getting fired, and he wants revenge. Yeah, yeah. And as the subject of his own book, he lacks the usual affection bestowed upon such people from the rabidly left-wing Occupods or the less rabid Hillaryites, because,

A quick look at Michael Cohen´s judge

"Judge hands defeat to Trump and Cohen," blares the headline. Kimba Wood...Kimba Wood...where have I heard that name before? Well, look at this. She was Bill Clinton´s second choice to be attorney general, after the Zoe Baird nomination blew up. Kimba´s blew up, too, because she forgot to tell the White House she had employed an illegal as a nanny. Is this amazingly great luck for the Mueller-U.S. attorney tag team or what? But don´t be downhearted. Judge Wood has it all doped out: "I have faith in the Southern District U.S. Attorney´s office that their integrity is unimpeachable," Judge Wood said. Remember

I restrained myself from commenting on the suicide to protest global warming of “famed gay rights lawyer” David Buckel for the last two days because, quite frankly, my first reactions were inappropriate laughter at what must be regarded as a human tragedy. “What was the carbon footprint of dousing himself in flammables and releasing into the atmosphere all the carbon in a carbon-based life form?” was the first thought I had. But after all, this is a human being, so I hesitated to mock. After some reflection, I see that this is a tragedy the Greek sense of the word,

James Comey´s bid to throw former Attorney General Loretta Lynch under the bus isn´t going over well, at least with Lynch. According to a report in Axios, which includes a long blathering statement from Lynch: Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch released a statement on Sunday, saying that she and former FBI Director James Comey have known each other almost 30 years, and "he had ample opportunities to raise" any concerns he had over the Department of Justice´s investigation of Hillary Clinton´s emails, but "[h]e never did."

What a Crumby Thing

Doubling down on House minority leader Nancy Pelosi´s mantra that the Trump tax cuts and corporate bonuses for individual workers are "pathetic" and mere "crumbs," presidential wannabe Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) blamed middle-class Americans keeping more of their money and corporations sharing more of their profits for driving up the debt: In a video with fellow Democratic Senators Chris Van Hollen and Tammy Baldwin, Booker slammed the Republican-led tax reform effort that cut taxes for a vast majority of Americans and led many businesses to give their employees one-time bonuses[.] ... Booker went on to shame people who received those one-time bonuses,

Advice to Trump: Make

If Special Counsel Robert Mueller believed he had actionable grounds to suspect Pres. Trump of some crime that Mueller was authorized to investigate, he should have raided Trump´s home and offices, not the offices of Trump´s attorney, Michael Cohen. When Mueller seized Cohen´s records, he was seizing privileged information between a lawyer and not only his one client, Donald Trump, but also such privileged information from Cohen and all his clients. Mueller was not only doing potentially serious damage to Cohen´s profession, but also violating a bedrock principle – client-attorney confidentiality – on which our legal system stands. When Pres.

Even at age 90, Helga Lustig vividly remembers when she first heard the news that her father had been taken away by the Nazis. (snip) Helga´s father certainly couldn´t fight back. A year before, they had come for his guns. Since he had been a German officer in the Kaiser´s army in the Great War, the Nazis assumed, erroneously, it turned out, that he had at least kept his sidearm. They relented on his traditional officer´s sword, reasoning that it was no match for bullets anyway. The Nazis had in their possession a national registry of gun-owners. When they came to

If there was any doubt that Robert Mueller’s Ahab-like goal is the unseating of President Trump at all costs and by any means, it was erased by the thuggish FBI raid he orchestrated on the home and office of Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen.

As we watch the drama escalate in the effort to undo the 2016 presidential election, consider the case of another chief executive elected at the same time, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens. A Republican, Governor Greitens was indicted in February for felony invasion of privacy by allegedly photographing his former lover, “K.S.,” without her knowledge or permission.

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.

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.

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.
