CNN Follows Order From Obama KGB, Wins Award

Let’s set aside the crudeness on display at Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner because the farce is justifiably being blasted by both sides today. The real folly is that at the same time sanctimonious journalists were congratulating themselves as defenders of the First Amendment, the Washington press corps really revealed itself (again) as the […]

James Comey as Nathan Thurm

“I’m not defensive. You’re the one being defensive.” Nathan Thurm, a fictional character played by Martin Short on “Saturday Night Live” in the 1980s, was a paranoid, chain-smoking lawyer who defended Big Business in make-believe interviews with reporters. Thurm would act defiant, play dumb, or turn the tables when pressed to answer questions. Short’s portrayal of […]

Devin Nunes Is a Badass

Rule of Law(less) Republicans

Earlier this month, NeverTrumpers unveiled their latest grudge-clique, “Republicans for the Rule of Law.” (This is only slightly better than the pitifully lame, “Meeting of the Concerned” that the NTs convened in 2017.) Just like every other failed effort by the Right to resist President Trump, RRL is headed by Bill Kristol, the editor-at-large-and-getting-larger of The Weekly […]

Another Comey FBI Failure: The Larry Nassar Case

It is impossible to read today’s front-page Wall Street Journal profile on McKayla Maroney and not feel ill. The article details the sexual and physical abuse the two-time Olympic medalist—who sparked an internet meme for her scowl on the podium at the 2012 London Olympics—endured for years by Larry Nassar, the team’s doctor. (Nassar has been convicted of possessing child […]

Congress Pursues Clinton for Hiding Fusion GPS Payments

As I reported here, the Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission last year alleging that Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee violated campaign finance laws by not revealing their payments to Fusion GPS. In an October 25, 2017 filing with the FEC, the watchdog group accused the Hillary […]

The NYT’s ‘Ridiculous’ Obsession With Scott Pruitt

The New York Times has yet another editorial this week berating EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. The paper is on a mission to not only force Pruitt’s ouster but damage his reputation so badly that it’s beyond repair—and certainly keep him from taking the helm of the Trump Justice Department. The paper’s latest rant, “Scott Pruitt Has […]

NeverTrumper Bret Stephens’ Pleasure Ride

When the New York Times hired columnist Bret Stephens away from the Wall Street Journal one year ago, the paper thought it would be getting a blue-chip, Pulitzer-winning, anti-Trump “conservative” to bash the president and his orbit on a bi-weekly basis. Little did The Gray Lady know it would simply be the vessel for Stephens’ […]

War of Words Escalates Between Comey and Lynch

This is getting good. Former FBI Director James Comey has been fairly blunt in his criticism about his ex-boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch; Lynch is now fighting back. The two are presently engaged in a he-said, she-said PR skirmish that seems more like damage control before the Justice Department’s inspector general releases his report about […]

Christie: Comey Would Have Fired Me If I Had Acted Like Comey

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stunned his fellow panelists on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” Sunday morning when he tore after his ex-boss, James Comey. In his new book, A Higher Loyalty, Comey admits the likelihood Hillary Clinton was going to win the presidential election influenced his decision to release a letter on October 28, […]

Forget Stormy: Clinton Campaign, DNC Covered-Up Fusion GPS Payments

Maybe if Glenn Simpson had quintuple-DD breast implants, the media would pay some attention to how Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee covered-up their payments to his firm, Fusion GPS, to produce the infamous Steele “dossier.” In October 2017, the Washington Post confirmed that Hillary for America and the DNC funneled millions of […]

Lyin’ Comey: Can the Former FBI Director Unite America?

As I’ve written before, Donald Trump has given the Republican Party some cojones. The Republican National Committee has released a video – “Lyin’ Comey” – to remind Democrats about that time way back in late 2016 when they all believed former FBI Director James Comey was a villain. Comey is peddling his new book, A […]

Pompeo Hearing: The Democrats’ One-Act Show

All the characters in the Democratic Party made an appearance at today’s Senate confirmation hearing for Mike Pompeo, President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State. Pointless, pink protestors made a half-hearted attempt to disrupt the start of the proceedings. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.)—another symbol of unpunished, arrogant Democratic corruption—badgered Pompeo about conversations he had with the president […]

Millennial Visits Nursing Home, Explains Technology

It’s nearly impossible to feel bad for a 33-year-old Lefty billionaire, but a joint committee of the U.S. Senate today turned Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg into a sympathetic figure. We’ve all been in Zuckerberg’s shoes: We felt his pain in trying to explain technology to senior citizens, or attempting to hide a look of utter bewilderment at a question that made absolutely no […]

Kristol Cheers FBI Raid on Trump’s Lawyer

Our favorite NeverTrumper wasn’t kidding when he said in 2017 that he prefers “the deep state to the Trump state.” Bill Kristol was like a kid on Christmas morning, giddy over yesterday’s raid on the home and office of Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer, and cheering it as a “huge escalation” in the Mueller investigation. Rather than express any skepticism […]
