Liberal Hypocrisy: Rosanne Reboot Canceled after Rosanne Barr Tweet about Valerie Jarrett

ABC reboot Rosanne has been canceled after Roseanne Barr sent out a tweet comparing ex-Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to the Planet of the Apes.


"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said Tuesday.

ABC, in a stunning move, has decided to cancel its Roseanne revival following star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet Tuesday.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said Tuesday.

Early Tuesday, star, head writer and executive producer Barr attacked Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, in a since-deleted tweet in which she said "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." Barr subsequently apologized: "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste."

Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger also weighed in on the decision to cancel Roseanne: "There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing," he tweeted."

While the tweet was dumb and guaranteed to produce consequences as mentioned, one could also state the liberal outrage was mostly faux. Liberal entertainers, writers, and others have consistently referred to both conservative blacks and whites in racist and derogatory tones. The is especially true for black comedians and use racism against whites and yet are lauded, and even give greater avenues for spewing their hate.

For instance, a black writer, Monica Judge used a "monkey reference" to refer to HUD Secretary Ben Carson in October of last year.


During the Bush administration constant derogatory racism references, we used on Condi Rice, and went unpunished by the media.

Some of these references were made by ABC's The View by castmate Whoopie Goldberg. In fact, more often racist comments are more often produced by the liberal entertainers than by anyone conservative. Again most the outrage is selective and hypocritical.

REPORT: Right-wing activist Tommy Robinson reportedly jailed after filming outside child grooming trial

In Britain, like in a lot of Europe democracy is a farce, especially when it comes to free speech and a free press. Via Fox News:


"U.K. right-wing activist and journalist Tommy Robinson was arrested and reportedly jailed Friday after he filmed members of an alleged child grooming gang entering a court for trial -- but the details of his purported sentence remain murky after the judge ordered the press not to report on the case.

Robinson, the former head of the English Defense League and a longtime activist against Islam and Islamic migration, was arrested after he was filming men accused of being part of a gang that groomed children. Britain has been rocked by a series of child sex scandals perpetrated by gangs of predominantly Muslim men.

Video shows Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Lennon, being surrounded by as many as seven police officers as he live-streamed the incident on his phone. The police informed him he was being arrested for “breach of the peace.”

But shortly after his arrest, a source with knowledge of the case told Fox News that he had been jailed for 13 months on a contempt-of-court charge.

A court listing indicated the case was “closed” by Friday afternoon.

One source said he was jailed in Hull Prison. The prison declined to comment to Fox News on whether Robinson was there. Leeds Crown Court also did not return a request for information.

According to The Independent, Robinson was already on a suspended sentence for contempt of court over a gang rape case in 2017.

The judge in the case on Friday slapped a reporting ban on the case. The order bans reporters from reporting on a case if there is reason to believe the reporting could prejudice a trial. The order prevents reporting until the conclusion of the trial Robinson was reporting on.

The gag order led to news outlets in the U.K. removing their reporting from their websites to comply with the order. Most remaining reporting in the U.K. comments on Robinson’s arrest, but not on his purported sentencing.

Sources with knowledge of Robinson’s case spoke on condition of anonymity in part because of fear they would be arrested for contempt. One told Fox that Robinson’s lawyer warned that, considering the presence of Muslim gang members in prison, a 13-month sentence was tantamount to a death sentence.

Unlike the US, the British court can issue gag orders on the media, preventing them from reporting on the case. Crowds have begun to form chanting "Free Tommy" outside the prison as well.

REPORT: Obama Advisors' Emails In Immediate Sandy Hook Aftermath Reveal Anti-Gun Agenda: 'Tap Peoples Emotions'

Via Daily Caller:

"According to emails obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, first reported by The Baltimore Post, advisors to then-President Barack Obama immediately strategized how to exploit the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school to push their gun control agenda. "Tap peoples [sic] emotions," Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel advised then-Education Secretary Arne Duncan on December 16, 2012, just two days after the massacre that left 26 dead. The victims' bodies were yet to be laid to rest.

The two discussed how they could exploit the tragedy to bring about their anti-gun agenda. "What are your thoughts?" Duncan asked Emanuel on an email with the subject line, "CT shooting."

"Go for a vote this week asap before it fades," replied Emanuel. "TaBradyples [sic] emotion. Make it simple assault weapons."

"Yup- thanks," replied the education secretary.

"When I did brady bill and assault weapons for Clinton we always made it simple. Criminals or war weapons," wrote back Emanuel.

Duncan then inquired about the so-called "gun show loophole" and other talking points to push on the public.

"Gun show loophole? Database? Cop-killer bullets? Too complicated?" he wrote.

"Cop killer maybe," answered Emanuel. "The other no."

"Got it," Duncan agreed."

One thing that we have learned from the tragic gun violence at schools is how Democrats come crashing through the gates to push their gun control agenda, and this email proves it. No doubt the subject needs to be discussed, but for they don't even wait until the victims have been mourned. One thing always missed is that with most of this violence it occurs on Democrat-controlled ground where there is already the toughest gun control laws on the books.

To have Emanuel on this is, of course, he is the mayor of Chicago which has more per capita violence than anywhere else in the nation. Another is that not all those affected by the violence are Democrats, nor necessarily of the same opinion of what should be done.

REPORT: Another 'informant' attempted to infiltrate Trump campaign under Obama, campaign aide says

At least one additional government 'informant' attempted to infiltrate the Trump campaign under President Obama, former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo revealed exclusively on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" Monday night.

"Let me tell you something that I know for a fact," Caputo told host Laura Ingraham. "This informant, this person that they tried to plant into the campaign -- and even into the administration, if you believe Axios -- he's not the only person who came at the campaign. And the FBI is not the only Obama agency who came at the campaign.

"I know because they came at me," Caputo added. "And I'm looking for clearance from my attorney to reveal this to the public. This is just the beginning."

Axios has reported that the suspected FBI informant in the Trump campaign was recommended for a senior post in the Trump administration.

"When we finally find out the truth about this, Director Clapper and the rest of them will be wearing some orange suits," Caputo told Ingraham, referring to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

I'm sure that there will be more to come on this in the coming days.


UPDATE: Not a bit surprised that there are denials on this from those who made contact as has been the case with everything else we have learned.

"Former Trump adviser Michael Caputo’s suggestion that a second government informant may have been snooping on the president’s 2016 campaign came into question overnight, as two other individuals involved in the flagged discussions downplayed their role.

Caputo had told Fox News, in two televised interviews, that he was approached in 2016, likening the situation to revelations that another government informant made contacts with several other Trump advisers in the early stages of the Russia probe.

Caputo told Neil Cavuto Tuesday on “Your World” that he was approached in early May 2016 by an intermediary “who had been talking to a government official” looking to connect with the Trump campaign -- purportedly to hand off Hillary Clinton-related emails.

But when contacted by Fox News, the individual who supplied the information – a government contractor – denied having ever contracted for an intelligence agency and downplayed the interaction as “cocktail party talk about where to go do opposition research.” The individual claimed to have gotten the information in question after meeting with an NSA contractor who shared information about a purported email depicting ‘pay-for-play’ between the Clinton Global Initiative and State Department.

The individual stressed that they are not connected with any of the intelligence agencies and were not trying to reach out to the Trump campaign on behalf of any agency, but rather passing along unconfirmed information about the Clinton campaign they thought should be pursued."

Sure, um OK, "Should you be caught we will disavow any knowledge....." Clandestine bull crap, but we'll see, the damn has already broke, denials won't cut it.

DOJ to look into Trump's claims Obama WH may have directed campaign 'infiltration'

As it's become know, especially after the news from The Daily Caller that the FBI informant in fact being University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, President Trump demanded that the DOJ investigate to get all the facts official. Demand met.

"The Justice Department asked its watchdog to look into any alleged "impropriety or political motivation" in the FBI's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, the DOJ said Sunday night -- hours after President Trump ordered a review looking into whether federal agents infiltrated or surveilled his campaign for political purposes.

"I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes -- and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!" the president tweeted."



The Department has asked the Inspector General to expand the ongoing review of the (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) application process to include determining whether there was any impropriety or political motivation in how the FBI conducted its counterintelligence investigation of persons suspected of involvement with the Russian agents who interfered in the 2016 presidential election. As always, the Inspector General will consult with the appropriate U.S. Attorney if there is any evidence of potential criminal conduct," DOJ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores told Fox News.

She also released a response from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein: "If anyone did infiltrate or surveil participants in a presidential campaign for inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action."

As I said before, ever since the NY Times story broke of Operation Cross Hurricane, they, and the rest of the media have been trying to backpeddle, disavow and generally change the story to say that it was basically a nothingburger, with John Brennan - a known perjurer - attempting to convince us that it was all for our own good.

The heat of the Russian investigation has now switched now that it's become apparent that the entirety of the situation was manufactured to discredit Candidate Trump, and then ramped up after he beat the odds and became President. Now apparently we'll find out the truth.

REPORT: Mole was planted inside Trump Campaign Indentified: Cambridge University Professor Stefan Halper

After several days of media coverup, it's now been reported that Cambridge University Professor Stefan Halper was indeed the FBI mole inserted into the Trump campaign. Via Fox News:

"University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper has been identified as an FBI informant in Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, multiple news outlets reported Saturday.

The 73-year-old academic reportedly has deep ties to American and British intelligence, having served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations, the New York Post reported.

President Trump tweeted Friday that confirmation of an FBI plant in his campaign would become the nation's "all time biggest political scandal."

“Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president,” Trump wrote. “It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a “hot” Fake News story. If true – all-time biggest political scandal!”

The New York Times and Washington Post reportedly have known of Halper’s identity for weeks, but chose not to reveal his name. Then on Thursday, the Daily Caller named Halper in the opening paragraph of its report.

The Washington Post said it received warnings from U.S. officials that revealing Halper’s identity posed a security risk.

Meanwhile, reports vary on when the FBI tapped Halper to snoop on the Trump campaign.

The New York Times reported in December that during “a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016,” Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos had disclosed to an Australian diplomat the Russians had dirt on the Clinton campaign. The Australians then tipped off the FBI, prompting the agency to launch “Crossfire Hurricane” on July 31, 2016.

But Halper met with Page in early July that summer, contradicting the FBI’s claims of when the operation began, while Halper met Carter Page at a British symposium and remained in contact for more than a year.

In August, Halper met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis to offer his experience, the Washington Post reported.

A few days later, Halper reportedly offered Papadopoulos compensation in exchange for writing a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region.

Sources close to Papadopoulos now say Halper was working for an intelligence agency.

Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, while Page was the subject of a federal surveillance warrant.

By May 2017, the “Cross Hurricane” operation had melded with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Halper was implicated in another campaign scandal when in 1980 he allegedly worked on behalf of the CIA to spy on the Carter campaign to provide information to George H.W. Bush’s campaign."

So all the covering up the media has been doing over the last couple of days was simply that - a cover, for well-seasoned informant.

Just How "Scandal Free" was Obama's Eight Years in Office

I love it when liberals try to present Obama's time in office as "scandal free". Progressives firmly believe that if you repeat something long enough and over and over it's somehow true. But does that claim hold up to scrutiny?


Well, let's review it. Via the Boston Globe:


"Operation Fast and Furious. In a botched “gunwalking” sting, the Justice Department allowed thousands of guns to be sold to suspected smugglers, in the hope of tracing them to Mexican drug cartels. But the Obama administration lost track of the weapons, many of which later turned up at crime scenes in which scores of people were murdered. Among the dead: US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, killed by drug gangsters in 2010. Compounding the scandal was Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to turn over documents relating to the operation, a refusal for which he was held in contempt of Congress."


Benghazi. When Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed in a terrorist attack on the US consulate in Libya in 2012, administration officials falsely blamed their deaths on an irrelevant YouTube video. That wasn’t fog of war, it was deceit. In public statements, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attributed the attack to “inflammatory material posted on the Internet.” But in private e-mails to her daughter and the Egyptian prime minister — e-mails not discovered until 2015 — she candidly acknowledged that the Americans had been assaulted and killed by “an al Qaeda-like group.


Veterans Administration. On Obama’s watch, tens of thousands of veterans were denied proper health care at VA hospitals. Their names were added to phony waiting lists and they were stonewalled for months or even years. More than 300,000 veterans may have died awaiting medical treatment that never came. According to the Veterans Affairs inspector general, thousands of veterans’ health care enrollment applications were deleted or buried. Eventually, VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned in disgrace."

Numerous other scandals plagued the Obama administration.

The IRS discriminated against politically conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, placing organizations on indefinite hold if their names contained such terms as “Tea Party” or “Patriots.”

The Office of Personnel Management suffered a catastrophic data breach that exposed the confidential records of at least 10 million federal employees to hackers. OPM’s director had repeatedly been warned that the agency was vulnerable to cyberattack, but had failed to take the warnings seriously.

The Obama administration, eager to promote “green” energy, lavished more than $500 million in loan guarantees on Solyndra, a high-risk startup. When the company went bankrupt, taxpayers ate the loss.

From letting Hezbollah funnel cocaine into the United States to secretly wiretapping AP reporters, there were scandals aplenty when Obama was president. The media reported them all, but never with the fury and frenzy that characterize coverage of Donald Trump’s schedule. Obama benefited from being a media darling."
Even after his time new scandals have come to light such as the growing story of how Obama reportedly used the DOJ and the FBI to investigate a Presidential candidate, and while still in an ongoing investigation it's veracity becomes even clearer each day.

Media's Rediculous Explanation for FBI Spying on Trump Campaign - "We were trying to help him!"

Suddenly when it became apparent that Obama's FBI had been caught spying on the Trump campaign, the campaign of misinformation began. This is always planned as a backup when you are caught, or the plan is exposed.

A more rediculous explaination I've yet to see. The explaination by the FBI, suggested by known liars such as James Clapper, is that this was a counterintelligence operation or other such clap trap.

The New York Times in a moment of pure journalism uncovered the plan recently and now it's CYA time all around.

Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.”

Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So, if there was someone that was observing that sort of thing, that’s a good thing.”

He also stated he believes “it’s hugely dangerous if someone like that is exposed because the danger to that person” and the potential “reluctance of others to be informants for the FBI” could possibly devastate the FBI.

Well, yeah Clapper, I guess.....

Again Clapper has provided cover and perjury ever since he left the position of Obama's handpicked DNI, and now works - of course for CNN.

Clapper on CNN:

"CLAPPER: This is hyperbole. They may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign, but, y’know, the focus here, and as it was with the intelligence community, is not on the campaign per se, but what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it. So if there was someone that was observing that sort of thing, well, that’s a good thing! Uh, because the Russians pose a threat to the very basis of our political system."

Hyperbole my ass. If they were so concerned about Russian interference why then not send a "spy" into the Clinton campaign because it was known that they had been hacked as well. Of course it was targeted at Trump, there was no concern over Hillary because after all to them she was supposed to win.

The whole of the operation was to take out Trump before the election. But that didn't happen so they lauched a investigation into Trump via a Special Council. But then after a year nothing has been found and worse for them the operation has been exposed so now almost in unison all the media outlets speaking almost off the same script are trying to play it down and spreading a false narrative that this was all good for everyone, after all they were just doing their jobs.

BREAKING: Texas high school shooting leaves 8-10 dead; 1 in Custody

Via FoxNews


"A Texas high school student unleashed a hail of bullets inside one of his classes early Friday morning, gunning down eight to 10 people, police said.
The suspected shooter was taken into police custody and a second suspect has been detained. The suspect in custody and the suspect detained for further questioning were both students.

Police officers responded to Santa Fe High School around 8 a.m. CDT after reports that a shooter opened fire inside.

The Santa Fe School District stated possible explosive devices were found on and off the school's campus. Law enforcement officers were on the scene "rendering them safe." The school has been evacuated.

A school resource officer was shot and injured and another officer was also injured in the incident, CBS News reported.

President Trump addresses Texas high school shooting, vows his administration will do everything possible to protect nation's students.

The chief nursing officer at the University of Texas Medical Branch told reporters the center received two adult patients and one person under 18 years old.

Galveston County Sheriff's Maj. Douglas Hudson said units responded to reports of shots fired. Witnesses say a gunman opened fire inside an art class during first period. A student in the class told KTRK she witnessed at least one girl being shot.

"We thought it was a fire drill at first but really, the teacher said, 'Start running,'" the student told the news station."


More to come.


Authorities confirm that an explosive was found in the basement under the school. Additionally, terrorism hasn't been determined as of yet.

UPDATE: Explosives were found in various places, making it seem that this was a coordinated planned attack. But more information to come.

CONFIRMED: FBI covert spy was inserted into Trump campaign to frame him

As the so-called Trump campaign / Russian collusion narrative collapses, over the last month it's been discovered that the FBI created a covert operation in the Trump campaign to frame President Trump. Fired FBI director James Comey freely participated in the campaign along with other principle players, but also points to direct involvement by former President Barack Obama. All of this activity led to the creation of the Special Council which Robert Mueller has been running for over a year and still hasn't uncovered any collusion reference to Trump and Russia.

Newly installed Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani detailed a New York Times piece that confirmed that there was a spy or spies planted among the Trump campaign, to thwart his run for president.

"Giuliani, who is now assisting the president with the legal aspects of the ongoing Mueller probe, held up The Times piece as evidence of serious corruption.

“Well it would change a lot of things,” the former mayor began.

“First of all, we’re going to have to look into it as a result of The Times’ article. Thank you New York Times — they usually don’t help us,” he said.

In Giuliani’s view, “Operation Crossfire Hurricane” could mean that the entire Mueller investigation against the Trump administration may have been founded on false pretenses.

“In this case, I think we’re going to have to look into whether we can challenge the legitimacy of the entire investigation,” he pointed out. “Maybe a special prosecutor, a special counsel, never should’ve been appointed.”

RELATED: WSJ Reporter: We’ve Confirmed the Worst – US Intel Truly Was Spying on Trump Camp

The New York politician, who became famous for his leadership after 9/11, didn’t shy away from using the term “spy” to describe what the FBI allegedly did to Trump’s campaign.

“I’m shocked to hear that they put a spy in the campaign of a major party candidate or maybe two spies,” he acknowledged. “And now I’m going through my brain, because you know I was a big part of that campaign — I’m trying to figure out who was the spy.”

Giuliani also confirmed what was on everyone’s mind: The use of the FBI as a political enforcement wing of the Obama administration, with James Comey as head of the operation, would make the Nixon era look quaint in comparison.

“That would be the biggest scandal in the history of this town, at least involving law enforcement,” he declared."

It would, and I believe it is. However I doubt the liberal New York Times wouldn't reveal this without some underlying reason and with the coming IG report, my bet is that the Times is expecting the news to be worse and far more explosive and is trying to soften the blow.

Senate Intelligence Committee Wonky Report on Russian Meddling

Something is amiss with the Senate Intelligence report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Specifically that their last interviews are with many of the principles who are known to have participated to some degree in the meddling.


Via Fox News:


"Senate Intelligence Committee leaders on Wednesday backed the 2017 intelligence community report that formally accused Russia of trying to interfere in the U.S. presidential election to boost then-candidate Donald Trump.

Their statements followed a final closed-door interview on the matter with top Obama administration officials. The committee, led by Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., spoke Wednesday with former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan and former National Security Agenda Director Michael Rogers (who retired earlier this year).

Former FBI Director James Comey was invited but did not show up -- skipping the closed-door session due to a “previously scheduled engagement,” his attorney said. Comey, who was fired last May, has been on a media blitz in recent weeks promoting his memoir, “A Higher Loyalty,” in which he is highly critical of now-President Trump.

Despite Comey’s absence, the committee leaders announced afterward they were able to complete the review of the intelligence community’s Russia assessment.

“Committee staff have spent 14 months reviewing the sources, tradecraft, and analytic work, and we see no reason to dispute the conclusions,” Burr said in a statement. “There is no doubt that Russia undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 elections. I look forward to completing the Committee’s inquiry and issuing our findings and recommendations to the American people.”

Warner said, “After a thorough review, our staff concluded that the ICA conclusions were accurate and on point. The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton.”


Note the last paragraph is exactly the Democrat talking points since the beginning. Read here. Again, all these players interviewed were in some way involved in somehow spiking Trump before the election as well.

Additionally, previously reporting showed that the Russians had actually played both sides of the fence to throw confusion by benefiting both candidates.


Let's also not forget that major player Fusion GPS who was behind the Trump Dossier was paid for the opposition research by the Clinton Campaign. Moreover the SIC report is in conflict with the reporting of the House Intel Committee report published last week.

Black Trump Supporter Harassed at South Florida Cheesecake Factory

You think opinionated employees would learn that this kind of stuff leads to the unemployment line by now.


"The Cheesecake Factory is investigating an incident at one of its Miami locations after a black customer claims he was verbally attacked by staff over his “Make America Great Again” hat, The Daily Wire reports.

Eugenior Joseph, 22, was reportedly dining with his girlfriend’s family at the Dadeland Mall location of the restaurant on Mother’s Day. His MAGA hat allegedly drew the attention of a female staff member, who gathered her co-workers to confront him, a witness told the site. The witness further claimed about a dozen of those employees circled his table, pointing fingers.

"So then all the employees started standing there, saying things out loud, like, 'I'm going to knock his head in so hard his hat's going to come off," the source said.

Other witnesses for The Daily Wire said some employees used the n-word in reference to Joseph when speaking among themselves, while another brandished his fists.

Joseph himself told The Daily Wire that one employee stood behind him, "balling his fists, smacking his fists, trying to scare me."

At one point, Joseph claims he and his girlfriend got up to use the restroom and, upon exiting, were greeted by the employees, who were “clapping and yelling, and just screaming things at me.”

The kitchen staff also allegedly booed him as he walked by."



Cheesecake factory has reportedly looked into the incident and found it has some merit, have to see how it works out. Since one of the employees used racial slurs it too may qualify under hate crime statutes as well.

Democrat's Midterm Generic Ballot advantage Bleeding - Down to One Point

Whatever the poll, the fact is that Democrats are losing their advantage, once in the double digits. For all the analysis, two factors can't be ignored on election day. First, Trump and his ability to command his supporters to show up and take over the polls, and two, well he's Trump. Remember in 2016 this was the guy who according to most polls was toast and couldn't win, and Hillary couldn't lose. Who is living in the woods now?

Some good, but generally stock analysis and wisdom here. But Trump broke the mold on elections in 2016 and so much stock analysis went into the crapper. Another point, and it's almost never that the party out of power was this far off the mark going into the midterms.

Dershowitz to Mueller: Stop, Just Stop

It's pretty clear by now that the supposed mandate that Robert Muller ran with to investigate whether there was collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign has run it's course has ended. The House Senate Intelligence committee has concluded that while there were some knuckle-headed moves by the Trump campaign there was no collusion, and that ends the investigation and it's time to stop wasting money chasing dreams of such. It's the put up or shut up time for Mueller. Yet he goes on. Noted defense attorney and Democrat Allen Dershowitz wrote in the Hill:

"In this case, the appointment of a special counsel has done more harm than good. It has politicized our justice system beyond repair. The FBI deputy director has been fired for leaking and lying. His testimony appears to be in conflict with that of the former FBI director as to whether the leaks were authorized. Messages by high-ranking FBI agents suggest strong bias against Trump. A tweet by the former CIA director reveals equally strong negative views of the president. Perhaps these revelations prove nothing more than that law enforcement and national security officials are human and hold political views like everyone else.

But these views are not supposed to influence their decisions. In our age of hyperpartisanship, the public has understandably lost confidence in the ability and willingness of our leaders to separate their political views from their law enforcement decisions. This is not all attributable to the appointment of the special counsel, but the criminalization of political differences on both sides of the aisle has certainly contributed to the atmosphere of distrust in our justice system.

The public has lost faith in the leadership of the Justice Department and the FBI. They don’t trust congressional investigative committees. They don’t know whom to believe when they hear conflicting accounts. There are leaks galore followed by denials of leaks. It’s a total mess. And what do we have to show for it? Just a handful of low-level indictments based largely on alleged crimes that are either unrelated or only marginally related to Russia’s attempt to influence our presidential election in 2016."


Mueller appears to be only interested in nailing President Trump to the cross, a sort of vendetta for Trump firing his friend James Comey, even though there is hardly anyone except liberal maniacs who didn't think Comey should be fired. Prior to the election, just about all Democrats called for his head.

But at this point it should be wrapped up, even Vice President Pence called for it to end.

No, if Trump lied it's not the same as Bill Clinton lied about Monica Lewinski

The left is beginning to form the idea that IF Trump lied about Stormy Daniels - and that's a big if' it's somehow the same as Clinton's crime of lying about Monica Lewinski. The primary charge against Clinton was detailed in the articles of impeachment.

Article I charged that Clinton lied to the grand jury concerning:

the nature and details of his relationship with Lewinsky
prior false statements he made in the Jones deposition
prior false statements he allowed his lawyer to make characterizing Lewinsky's affidavit
his attempts to tamper with witnesses

Article III charged Clinton with attempting to obstruct justice in the Jones case by:

encouraging Lewinsky to file a false affidavit
encouraging Lewinsky to give false testimony if and when she was called to testify
concealing gifts he had given to Lewinsky that had been subpoenaed
attempting to secure a job for Lewinsky to influence her testimony
permitting his lawyer to make false statements characterizing Lewinsky's affidavit
attempting to tamper with the possible testimony of his secretary Betty Curie
making false and misleading statements to potential grand jury witnesses

None of these even come close to anything that Trump has done up to this point. Trump has not lied before a grand jury, been proven as had committed a high crime or misdemeanor or any other such crime. The left has been trying to payback the right for impeaching Clinton for the last 20 years and has never even come close, and it won't happen either.

Federal Judge Calls out Team Mueller "C'mon Man"

Ever since this fiasco that Mueller began the question has remained just how much power does Mueller possess and how far can he go. Originally his mandate was to investigate any conclusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. However, most of the indictments have been absent of that mandate except for some namby-pamby indictments of a few dozen Russians, unrelated to the Trump campaign which many questions whether they were ligitament or not.

Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort was indicted but crimes not related to the Trump campaign as well as a few others, but as of today Mueller has pretty much exhausted the investigation, yet he continues to march forward things not part of that original mandate. Via Fox News.


"A federal judge on Friday harshly rebuked Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team during a hearing for ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort – suggesting they lied about the scope of the investigation, are seeking “unfettered power” and are more interested in bringing down the president.

"You don't really care about Mr. Manafort,” U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III told Mueller’s team. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever."

Further, Ellis demanded to see the unredacted “scope memo,” a document outlining the scope of the special counsel’s Russia probe that congressional Republicans have also sought.

The hearing, where Manafort’s team fought to dismiss an 18-count indictment on tax and bank fraud-related charges, took a confrontational turn as it was revealed that at least some of the information in the investigation derived from an earlier Justice Department probe – in the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Manafort’s attorneys argue the special counsel does not have the power to indict him on the charges they have brought – and seemed to find a sympathetic ear with Ellis.

The Reagan-appointed judge asked Mueller’s team where they got the authority to indict Manafort on alleged crimes dating as far back as 2005."

At last it would seem the cover of the Mueller investigation is beginning to peal.

Did Giuliani give up the goods on Stormy?


Opps?

"On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Rudy Giuliani, a member of President Trump’s legal team, stated that President Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen for the $130,000 that Cohen paid to Stormy Daniels and that while, to his knowledge, the president didn’t know about the “specifics” of the deal, he knew a “general arrangement” that Cohen would take care of things like that.

Giuliani said, “That money was not campaign money. Sorry, I’m giving you a fact now that you don’t know. It’s not campaign money. No campaign finance violation.”

He added that the money was “funneled through the law firm and the president repaid it.”

Anchor Sean Hannity asked, “But, do you know the president didn’t know about this?”

Giuliani answered, “He didn’t know about the specifics of it, as far as I know. But he did know about the general arrangement that Michael would take care of things like this, like I take care of things like this for my clients. I don’t burden them with every single thing that comes along.”

In another segment, Giuliani said he hadn’t “investigated” whether Cohen asked the president before making the payment, but that there was no reason to doubt Cohen’s recollection of events."

Of course Trump had previous denied knowing about the payment, but this - in a twist - could have been just a denial of the specifics?

A possible explanation here.

Another although less palatable explanation comes from Trump's Tweet, but it gives hint to where the strategy is going.

"...very common among celebrities and people of wealth. In this case it is in full force and effect and will be used in Arbitration for damages against Ms. Clifford (Daniels). The agreement was used to stop the false and extortionist accusations made by her about an affair,......"

Which I would imagine is very true. I'll bet a lot of celebrities have the same problem as Trump having people come forward and accusing them of different things and the standard it to pay them off and get rid of them. In the long run - with legal cost - it's likely the cheaper way. Trump is now taking Daniels to court saying she violated her NDA, although she is saying otherwise.


Nevertheless it would appear - if no other discosures are made - that no crime has been committed, but the optics could prove bad in the long run.

Mueller Threatening to Subpoena President Trump

Via FoxNews.


"Special counsel Robert Mueller told President Trump's legal team that he could subpoena the president to appear before a grand jury if Trump refuses an interview with Mueller's team, Trump's former lead attorney told The Associated Press Tuesday night.

John Dowd told the AP that Mueller raised the possibility of a subpoena during a meeting with Trump's legal team in March. According to accounts of the meeting first reported by The Washington Post and confirmed by Fox News, Dowd retorted: "This isn’t some game. You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States."

Dowd resigned as Trump's lead lawyer weeks later amid a dispute over how to answer Mueller's request for a presidential interview.

The meeting appears to have been the first time Mueller raised the possibility of compelling Trump to testify as part of his investigation into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials ahead of the 2016 election."
The nature of the questions leaked this week, likely another leak from Mueller's office. This alone, repeated often from Mueller's office is but another example of prosecutorial misconduct, and in any other venue would be evidence enough of an out of control investigation. None of the leaked questions point to any specific misconduct, but look to be designed to trap Trump into lying under oath. More or less the "Have you stopped beating your wife, yes or no." Congressional investigations concluded showing absolutely no collusion took place, but Mueller apparently has gone past his mandate on that subject. I doubt that was the mandate at all at this point, this was simply an operation to get Trump at any cost.
