James Comey threw a book party
for all his friends — in the media

Washington Post, by Ben Terris

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/25/2018 9:21:09 PM

Half the country hated him for how he handled the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton, and the other half cannot stand him for his cutting commentary on President Trump. So, who is left to show up when Jim Comey hosts a book party in Washington, D.C.? Members of the media, of course! (Snip) It was, Comey said, his first and perhaps his last-ever book party. Like any intimate affair among friends, the evening began with a makeshift news conference. “Can you confirm that Pat Fitzgerald is representing you in some way?” Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times asked Comey, referring

Comments:
Get your barf bag out for this one! This is both laughable and shameful. I should be used to this by now, but I still can´t believe a former director of the FBI would behave so inappropriately. It makes you question everything that happened while he was there. It´s very disturbing. How many cases did he, McCabe, Strzok, et al they corrupt? It´s too overwhelming to consider.

Contd. FTA: "Former director of national intelligence James Clapper was at the party, too, telling anyone who would listen that his tie — checked with little martini glasses — made a cameo on page 201 of Comey’s book. “I’m a friend and admiring colleague of Jim’s, and I wanted to be here for him,” Clapper said. He continued: “The real reason I came is because my book comes out next month, and I wanted to see how these things worked.”

Isn´t it charming that Clapper had martini glasses on his tie.  Gag me. Here comes another book from Clapper that will eviscerate and spread more lies about Trump. The behavior of these people is just appalling and disgrace for what are supposed to be members of respected government agencies. 

I´ve never seen such reckless, inappropriate behavior from so many in DC.  They are just not slowing down, and yet Trump still stands tall. I don´t know how he withstands it every single day. It makes me admire him even more.

I watched a few minutes of the CNN town meeting with Comey, and have to conclude that he is mentally ill. Seriously. It is almost sad to watch him unravel..

Less than .25% of the US population bought a copy of Comey´s pack of lies, counting the batches that Soros and his reeducation groups bought to drive up sales. That´s not much to crow about.

Conspiracy to Frame Trump
‘Unraveling,’ Ex-Prosecutor Says
PoliZette, by Brendan Kirby    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/15/2018 3:23:06     Post Reply
New revelations that FBI agents pressed a Russian oligarch with ties to independent counsel Robert Mueller to help build an election collusion narrative only reinforce the likelihood of a conspiracy to frame President Donald Trump, according to a former federal prosecutor. Joseph diGenova, who served as U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia under Ronald Reagan, reacted to a report in The Hill that FBI agents met with Oleg Deripaska in September 2016. (Snip) DiGenova spread blame around but directed the majority of it at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who appointed Mueller.

President Donald Trump’s pick to be the next CIA director says the agency should never have conducted its enhanced interrogation program, telling a Democratic lawmaker that it “ultimately did damage” to U.S. standing in the world. In a letter sent Monday to Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, Haspel wrote that the program, which included waterboarding and other harsh physical punishments, “is not one the CIA should have undertaken.” “While I won’t condemn those that made these hard calls, and I have noted the valuable intelligence collected, the program ultimately did damage to our officers and our standing in the world,”

WASHINGTON — Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates said she had something to get off her chest about President Trump at the 2018 Ideas Conference hosted by the Center for American Progress on Tuesday: Don’t ignore his attacks on the rule of law. “What I worry about is the normalization of so much that is not normal,” said Yates, who was fired by Trump in January 2017 after refusing to comply with his controversial executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries. “There is a time-honored tradition at the Department of Justice, at least since Watergate, that is nonpartisan,” Yates said.

Twitter Is Going To Limit The Visibility

On Tuesday, Twitter announced a massive change to the way its conversations will work, evaluating not just the content of individual tweets, but the way users behave more broadly on the service. Twitter will now use thousands of behavioral signals when filtering search, replies, and algorithmic recommendations. If it believes you are trying to game its system, or simply acting like a jerk, it will push your tweets lower down. It’s the biggest update so far in the company’s push to create healthier conversations, an initiative announced by its CEO Jack Dorsey in March. Among the signals Twitter will use:

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels, has yet to correct false claims he made last week about two men who happen to share the same name as President Donald Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen. In a seven-page dossier released May 8, Avenatti listed details of “possible fraudulent and illegal” payments to two Michael Cohens who are not the Trump attorney. (Snip) Avenatti has not addressed the errors in TV appearances he has made since releasing his report. The lawyer did not respond to an emailed request for comment on the matter. Earlier on Monday, he threatened to sue two DCNF reporters

Former CIA Director John Brennan’s insistence that the salacious and unverified Steele dossier was not part of the official Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 election is being contradicted by two top former officials. Recently retired National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers stated in a classified letter to Congress that the Clinton campaign-funded memos did factor into the ICA. And James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence under President Obama, conceded in a recent CNN interview that the assessment was based on “some of the substantive content of the dossier.” Without elaborating, he maintained that “we were able to

The Iranian government has repeatedly denied knowing anything about his disappearance. (Snip) Then in fall 2010, the operation secured an offer to free Levinson.

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer, long a fixture on the Special Report "All-Star Panel," reacted to the concerns voiced by many viewers over his extended absence, and said he´s slowly but surely getting better. In Summer 2017, Dr. Krauthammer, 68, took time off from his familiar spot on the panel to undergo a medical operation, and later reportedly suffered complications from the procedure. (Snip) "The worst now appears to be behind me, and I´m finally getting back on track with the rehab schedule that will eventually get me home," he told Baier in an email the host read on-air Monday.

A whirlwind Washington era has vaulted White House reporters into a charmed, somewhat awkward, but characteristically Trumpian reality: fame and fortune. Since the 2016 election, the nation’s leading political reporters are flourishing. A media renaissance has juiced salaries for those who can break news about characters in the Trump orbit, thanks to their sourcing on the most intensely followed beat in the world. (Snip) Starting contributor rates for political reporters fall between about $30,000 and $50,000 a year.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said there is nothing in the world more dangerous than sincere ignorance. Well, sincere ignorance had a banner day last week when President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. A CNN/ORC poll taken shortly before Trump’s decision found that a majority of Americans — 63 percent — wanted the U.S. to stay in the deal. But get this: 62 percent of Americans believed Iran had violated its terms. To me, the second result is the more alarming. That poll is proof of sincere ignorance of the deal on the part of nearly two-thirds of Americans. They are under the spell of Trump’s

First United Airlines barred an emotional support peacock from boarding. Now American Airlines is telling passengers some of their service and emotional support animals - including goats, hedgehogs and tusked creatures - can´t fly. The carrier is joining rival airlines in tightening rules for passengers flying with emotional support animals, expanding the list of animals that can´t fly in addition to requiring customers vouch for their animal´s ability to behave. Federal laws require airlines to permit passengers with disabilities to travel with service and emotional support animals in the cabin, though airlines can require a statement from a licensed mental

New York´s other ex-mayor believes Americans are facing an "epidemic of dishonesty" in the nation´s capital that´s a bigger threat to democracy than terrorism or Communism. While Rudy Giuliani has embarked on a recent media blast on behalf of President Trump, former mayor Michael Bloomberg in a commencement speech Saturday at Texas´ Rice University warned of "an endless barrage of lies" and a trend toward "alternate realities." The three-term City Hall chief didn´t mention Giuliani or Trump by name. However, he instead blamed "extreme partisanship" for the current barrage of dishonesty in politics.

SEATTLE – The Seattle City Council on Monday approved a controversial but compromise head tax on large businesses to pay for programs for the homeless. The tax would raise about $48 million a year – less than the original proposal of $75 million but more than the $40 million that Mayor Jenny Durkan had proposed. Durkan says she will sign the bill. Amazon, downtown´s economic giant, immediately blasted the proposal and what it said was a hostile approach to larger businesses that "forces us to question our growth here."

MELBOURNE, Australia -- When you hear "world tour" you usually think of superstars performing concerts in various cities for adoring fans. Not so with the presidentially deprived, entitlement-driven Hillary Clinton. Last week, Hillary Clinton came to Melbourne, Australia´s second largest city, and to Sydney, its largest, with a huge chip on her shoulder. The chip has been there since the 2016 election and seems to be growing larger with every appearance. As with almost everything else the Clintons do, it cost to hear her bitterness. Those who went to hear Clinton speak, more than 5,000 people, paid between $200 and $500 Australian
