Democrats flood Andrew McCabe with federal job offers so as to stick taxpayers with his lifetime pen

Democrats flood Andrew McCabe with federal job offers so as to stick taxpayers with his lifetime pension
As we urged on Friday, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe was fired on Friday. This move came not at the urging of President Trump, but on the recommendation of the FBI’s own Office of Professional Responsibility, which said McCabe had been unethical and dishonest in his actions concerning several Clinton-related investigations.

We also told you the Beltway crowd and the chattering classes would blow a gasket over the timing, because by taking the action on Friday instead of waiting until today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions prevented McCabe from reaching the date when he would have been eligible for a lifetime federal pension. McCabe himself came out on Saturday with a long, public personal statement that claimed the whole thing was a political attack on him and the FBI by the Trump Administration.

Nolte: Threats Against Trump Made by John Brennan and Samantha Power Must Be Investigated

Two ominous tweets, one written by former CIA Director John Brennan, the other by former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power, openly threaten a sitting president — President Trump. This must be investigated.

Both of these tweets raise enormous questions, not only about what is meant by these threats, but what kind of inside information these former Obama officials might be receiving from unauthorized sources.—More…

IRS Documented 1.3M Identity Thefts by Illegal Aliens; Can’t Say It Referred Any for Prosecuti

(CNSNews.com) - The Internal Revenue Service in 2011 through 2016 documented more than 1.3 million cases of identity theft perpetrated by illegal aliens whom the IRS had given Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITIN), which are only given to people who are ineligible to work in the United States or receive Social Security Numbers, according to information published by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

However, in response to inquiries from CNSNews.com, the IRS could not say if it had referred even one of these cases for criminal prosecution.—More…

Box Office: Christian Film Set to Outperform Gay Rom-Com While ‘Wrinkle’ and J-Law Colla

Proving once again that there is plenty of room at the multiplex to appeal to Americans of all stripes, both a gay romantic comedy and a Christian film are earning big time at the box office, while A Wrinkle in Time, which had its Christian themes removed by Disney (of all places), completed its box office collapse. In its third weekend, Red Sparrow is already doornail dead.

Marvel’s pro-Trump Black Panther, of course, remained at number one. In its fifth weekend at the top of the charts, this box office smash took in another $28 million, for a total domestic haul of $607 million.—More…

Trump accuses James Comey of lying to Congress under oath about FBI leaks

President Trump accused fired FBI Director James Comey Sunday of lying to Congress when he told lawmakers last year that he never leaked information anonymously to the media or knew anyone else who did.

Referring to a news report about a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Mr. Trump tweeted, “Wow, watch Comey lie under oath to Senator G [Chairman Charles Grassley] when asked ‘have you ever been an anonymous source…or known someone else to be an anonymous source…?’ He said strongly ‘never, no.’ He lied as shown clearly on @foxandfriends.”—More…

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called for a Senate hearing on Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to fire FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe.

John Brennan Tweet Confirms Donald Trump’s Concerns About Politicized Intelligence

Former CIA Director John Brennan reacted to the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — and President Donald Trump’s celebration of it — by tweeting a strident attack against Trump:

The Dossier Gang That Didn’t Know Anything

The Dossier Gang That Didn't Know Anything
“I know nothing,” isn’t just the motto of Sergeant Schultz. It’s also the Clinton motto. And Christopher Steele, the Brit whom the Clinton campaign hired to find out things for them, also knows nothing.

Or at least that’s the theme of the sprawling New Yorker profile of Steele, his dossier and his associates.

Steele, Jane Mayer, its authoress, tells us, is a brilliant researcher and we should take his word about all his allegations involving President Trump. Even the ones that aren’t true and don’t make any sense.

Is Hillary Clinton using ‘falling’;  videos to Escape Uranium 1 and Clinton Foundation Investigation

Is Hillary Clinton using ‘falling’  videos to Escape Uranium 1 and Clinton Foundation Investigation?
Is Hillary Clinton using epic video falls—up and down—stairs as a way to dodge being brought in for questioning on Uranium 1 and the pay-for-play Clinton Foundation scandal?

Her latest fall was down the stairs in Mandu India.  Video also shows Clinton falling up the stairs as she was walking up them into a residential facility that helps former felons, substance abusers and the homeless move into self efficiency on Feb. 24, 2016.

After the two-time stair fall in India, Clinton went on to sprain her right wrist: (FoxNews, Mar. 16, 2018)

Doug Ford should not be quick to reject Trump comparison

Doug Ford should not be quick to reject Trump comparison
Since winning the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party a week ago, former Toronto City Councillor Doug Ford has been compared to Donald Trump. And not in a good way. But as polls taken since his victory indicate, a significant number of Ontarians do not like him but will vote for him anyway in order to get rid of Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals.

Ford has been asked about similarities between himself and the American president and Ford denied they are alike. The PC leader says these Trump comparisons are something made up by the media. But there are similarities between Ford and the American president and Ford should not be running away from them. After all, Trump did win.

Andrew McCabe kept memos on Trump dealings — and gave them to Mueller

WASHINGTON — Andrew McCabe, the onetime FBI deputy director long scorned by President Donald Trump and just fired by the attorney general, kept personal memos detailing interactions with the president that have been provided to the special counsel’s office and are similar to the notes compiled by dismissed FBI chief James Comey, The Associated Press has learned.

The memos could factor into special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as his team examines Trump campaign ties to Russia and possible obstruction of justice.—More…

FCC Chairman Quotes Bible While Vowing To Fight Internet Giants Engaged in Censorship

In a pre-recorded message for Christian communicators at Proclaim 18, the National Religious Broadcasters’ international Christian media convention, Federal Communications Commission Ajit Pai said conservatives must take the fight for their free speech to Silicon Valley.

Pledging that he, also, would be found on the “newest and most important battlefield in the fight for free speech,” the internet, Pai warned that action, not just rhetoric, was vital now, according to The Christian Post.—More…

Amazon Deletes Reviews of Conservative Authors with No Explanation

Amazon frightened many conservative authors this week in a mass deletion of reviews. Some authors lost almost 100 reviews on their published works. Others lost all the reviews they had ever written on Amazon. Some lost both. Information about the purge began to trickle out in the closed Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance (CLFA) Facebook group. Member after member began reporting the losses at the same time. Marina Fontaine, whose credits include the dystopian Chasing Freedom, the pro-Trump fiction anthology MAGA 2020, and moderating the CLFA page, reported many members experiencing losses. A coordinated effort was launched to contact Amazon for explanation. Jon Del Arroz, a science fiction author who was banned from Worldcon earlier this year, contacted Amazon directly asking for his reviews to be reinstated. Amazon responded:

At this time, we’ve reviewed your feedback and ensured that appropriate action is taken.  There may be times that reviews must be removed from the site.  Unfortunately, we won’t be able to discuss the specifics about why the reviews were removed as we’ll only be able to discuss that with the individuals who posted the reviews.  They’re welcome to contact us if they’d like additional information.—More…

Planned Parenthood vs. Gun Violence – Hypocrisy Greater Than the World Itself

Planned Parenthood vs. Gun Violence – Hypocrisy Greater Than the World Itself
With the help of some simple math, statistics and basic honesty this article could write itself.

To clarify, guns are not the main topic here. To this writer it is not the second amendment, gun manufacturers or the NRA that is behind America’s rash of gun violence. It is a generation long plunge into Godlessness that robs people of hope, faith and morality. Add to that, the slaughter of innocent unborn babies to the tune of 60 million since 1973, these two are what make today’s nascent disrespect for life easy to understand.

Sun rise over the Swamp

Sun rise over the Swamp
As the media battles pitting dueling, partisan strategists, talking over each other as they debate – if belching non sequitur talking-points is debating – the significance of this White House firing or hiring, or evidence of collusion or not, touting this “bombshell” announcement or that debunking of it, all this white noise ringing in our ears has, to many, become sound fury signifying nothing.

And we, many, are growing weary of it.

By golly, it is Trump’s fault McCabe was fired

By golly, it is Trump’s fault McCabe was fired
It’s obvious. Donald Trump’s entering the political fray in 2015, throwing his hat in the ring to run for president, forced Andrew McCabe to abandon integrity and good sense.

Any possibility that this brash, unqualified, business mogul might cross the Oval Office threshold had to be prevented at all costs, and McCabe was one of those compelled to stand strong for that rightful cause.

At least, that’s how he and much of the Swamp think about their desertion of ethical standards. There could be no higher calling than to oppose the ascendancy of Trump to the most powerful office in the land.
