Menendez lawyers can’t convince judge to end bribery trial (time to sweeten the deal?)

Menendez lawyers can’t convince judge to end bribery trial (time to sweeten the deal?)

**Written by Doug Powers New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez’s legal team would have tried getting a mistrial declared by slipping the judge a big envelope filled with cash, but ironically the only way that would have been guaranteed to work would have been if the judge was Senator Menendez. Back to the drawing board: Eight weeks of occasionally star-studded testimony by the likes of Senator Cory Booker and former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius … Read entire article »

Jimmy Kimmel to put Oscars celebs at ease by avoiding Weinstein material

**Written by Doug Powers News about Harvey Weinstein (and more recently Kevin Spacey) has meant some serious awkwardness for the Hollywood lefties who love to lecture America about morality. How will Jimmy Kimmel handle the situation early next year when he hosts the Oscars? Apparently by totally avoiding the subject. How brave! Kimmel will host the 2018 Academy Awards and he said that it will not be a place to joke about Weinstein or the people who have or have not come forward with allegations. “It’s not really a laughing matter. There’ll be a lot of people in that room who maybe have been through experiences with him, and that’s not something I want them to relive on the night they get their Oscar.” There will probably be many more hypocrites who knew how … Read entire article »

Some anniversaries Hillary Clinton is NOT going to remind everybody about

**Written by Doug Powers The traditional gift for a one-year anniversary is paper, so if you’re going to give Hillary Clinton a gift for this occasion, make it several boxes of tissues because she’s still crying about the election: Saturday marked the one-year anniversary of when, with 11 days until Election Day, former FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to members of Congress informing them that the FBI learned of the “existence of emails that … Read entire article »

Reality forces Dem Rep. Schiff to dial Russia rhetoric WAY back

**Written by Doug Powers When the contents of the so-called Trump dossier came out, Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff was among those who were all over it, making claims like this as if it was a cold, hard fact: Since then, some inconvenient facts have emerged that the Dems weren’t eager to disclose about the dossier: This morning, Schiff completed his metamorphosis into the Nathan Thurm of the new millennium by saying we need to find out how much … Read entire article »

How eager is Debbie Wasserman Schultz to talk about the Trump dossier?

**Written by Doug Powers This week, one of the most dangerous places to be on Earth is standing in between Debbie Wasserman Schultz and an “exit” sign during a question about the Trump dossier: Democrats’ dossier denials pile up. pic.twitter.com/m0NFFhj33m — Fox News (@FoxNews) October 27, 2017 Did DWS ever get her laptop back?

Out of Control Agencies – Who Controls Them?

Out of Control Agencies – Who Controls Them? Many people contemplated that it was conspiracy theory that our federal agencies would go out of control – like Orwell’s 1984. Yet, who is really controlling them? There are so many investigative agencies, secret and otherwise within the federal government. CIA, FBI, NSA, etc, etc When people in the head of our government can not get information when requested about certain people and topics. We have a problem, Houston!

The Deep State Runs The United States Federal Government

The Deep State Runs The United States Federal Government

Once the rule of law is vacant, no structure is present for society and almost always anarchy follows. The United States is being governed by the deep state. The federal government bureaucracy that controls what truly happens in the government agencies. So much control being centrally concentrated within the intelligence agencies. It makes the United States resemble what you would see in mot die hard Communist states throughout history. So I guess to his happiness, Barack Obama has changed … Read entire article »

Of course: MSNBC report asking if higher border fence is necessary ruined by fence jumpers

Russia investigation edges closer to… totally backfiring on Team Hillary

**Written by Doug Powers The DNC and Team Clinton’s immediate and loud “Russia collusion” accusation against the Trump campaign after their 2016 election loss was a desperate attempt to avoid the reality that Hillary was simply a bad candidate, but considering recent news it might also be one of the most glaring examples of projection in modern political history. Combine that with a new wrinkle in the Mueller investigation and all the finger pointing and demand for a Russia investigation could backfire big time: Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group are now the subjects of a federal investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, three sources with knowledge of the matter told NBC News. The probe of Podesta and his Democratic-leaning lobbying firm grew out of Mueller’s inquiry into the finances of … Read entire article »

Oops: Rep. Wilson unwittingly pokes holes in Dems’ Benghazi narrative

**Written by Doug Powers From the House Democrats’ Benghazi report released last year: “We have been hampered in our work by the ongoing Republican obsession with conspiracy theories that have no basis in reality,” said the Democratic report, which underscored the fierce political divisions between Republicans and Democrats over the attack on a U.S. consular post and a CIA annex in the Libyan port city. “Rather than reject these conspiracy theories in the absence of evidence — or in the face of hard facts — Select Committee Republicans embraced them and turned them into a political crusade.” “We hope our report will put to rest the conspiracy theories about Benghazi once and for all and return the focus to where it belongs—on the goal of improving the security of Americans serving abroad,” the … Read entire article »

United Nations shores up legacy as world’s biggest comedy club

**Written by Doug Powers Nothing sums up the U.N. and its agencies better than this: From the bureaucratic body that put Iran on a women’s rights council comes another effort to outdo themselves: Provoking global head-scratching and more than a little outrage, Robert Mugabe, the longtime president of Zimbabwe — who faces international sanctions for human rights abuses including violent crackdowns on political dissent — has been appointed as a “goodwill ambassador” for the World Health Organization.

Nauseating: Dem Rep. thrilled by how she just became a ‘rock star’

**Written by Doug Powers In a year where new lows seem to be reached almost hourly, this one might not be eclipsed for quite a bit longer than that: Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson (Fla.) laughed on Thursday that she was now a “rock star” and called it “phenomenal” that she’s embroiled in a feud with the White House over a conversation President Donald Trump had with a military widow. Wilson set off a firestorm this week when she told reporters that Trump upset Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, when he called her on Tuesday night. Wilson characterized Trump as insensitive in remarks she overheard to the widow of the soldier, who was killed along with three others in an ambush in Niger. Wilson then did a series of television interviews … Read entire article »

Bernie Sanders: You should WANT to pay higher taxes (For the ‘free’ stuff!)

**Written by Doug Powers Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz debated about taxes on CNN Wednesday night, and the Vermont socialist senator described the reason taxes on everybody need to go up, not down. Why? For all that “free” stuff: .@BernieSanders on taxes: “Yes, you are going to pay more”But says you will get “free health care, free child care,” kids can go to college — Teddy Davis (@TeddyDavisCNN) October 19, 2017 The crux of Bern-ocracy is that the government should get your money and decide what you need — no thought or freedom required! Heck, Americans should want to pay higher taxes, or so Sanders would like everybody to believe. Hopefully the Democratic Party parrots that message in 2020. Sanders’ attempt to invoke Robin Hood also blew up in his face: **Written by Doug Powers Twitter @ThePowersThatBe … Read entire article »

Cupp Slams Media/Politicians: No ‘Basic Curiosity’ in Niger Ambush

During Wednesday’s edition of Unfiltered, host S.E. Cupp was outraged over the fact that more of the media and Washington’s time had been spent arguing over what President Trump may or may not have said to a gold star family, instead of demanding answers for the ambush in Niger. “It’s a little empty to be outraged over what the President did or didn’t say to these gold star families. If you’re not also asking: Why they are now gold star families,” she lamented to her panel. … Read entire article »

Cruz vs. Sanders: What Is The Difference Between A Socialist And A Democrat On Taxes?

“Let me just ask, since this is a tax debate, what is the difference between a socialist and a Democrat on taxes?” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked Sen. Sanders (I-VT) in a nationally televised debate Wednesday night on CNN. “I don’t know the answer to that,” the Independent Senator from Vermont answered. CRUZ: Now, one of the things I like about debating Bernie is he’s honest. When he ran in Vermont, he ran as a socialist, an unabashed socialist. SANDERS: No, I didn’t. No, I ran as an independent. Longest serving independent in the history of the United States Congress. CRUZ: Are you a socialist or not? SANDERS: I am a democratic socialist… (CROSSTALK) CRUZ: OK. Good. SANDERS: But don’t tell them — I didn’t run as a socialist. I ran as an independent. CRUZ: You told people you … Read entire article »

Holder: Comey’s Draft Exoneration Of Clinton “A Good-Faith Assessment” Based On The Facts

Eric Holder defended former FBI Director James Comey’s draft exoneration letter for Hillary Clinton in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Wednesday. Holder commented, “you can make determinations about where an investigation is likely to go before you actually speak to the subject of that investigation.” JAKE TAPPER, CNN: You worked with James Comey when he was the FBI Director and you were the Attorney General. There is a newly released document suggesting he had been working on his statement in May of 2016 before he ultimately cleared Hillary Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing later that summer. I know you’ve been critical of Comey for being as outspoken as he was during that press conference and also the Comey Letter he wrote right before the election. President Trump tweeted that … Read entire article »
