1

By Clay Waters ~ How does the New York Times (and especially reporter Peter Baker) treat accusations that the F.B.I. overstepped their authority in a politicized effort to take down a president? That depends on who is president. On the front page of Monday’s New York Times, Peter Baker’s “news analysis,” “Trump Faces ‘Nonstop’ War […]

By Hans von Spakovsky ~ Peter Strzok’s testimony about the email server scandal involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton raised headlines because of his defiant, disrespectful, and unapologetic attitude about the bias revealed in his text messages that permeated his work at the FBI. Then, there was the verbal combat between him and Republican […]

The Schiff Memo Harms Democrats More Than It Helps Them

February 27, 2018 by

2

By Andrew C McCarthy ~ It confirms that the FBI and the DOJ relied heavily on uncorroborated, third-hand, anonymous sources in their FISA application. Maybe Adam Schiff has more of a sense of humor than I’d have given him credit for. The House Intelligence Committee’s ranking Democrat begins his long-awaited memo – the minority response […]

Russia Launches ‘Information’ War, U.S. Responds With Lawsuit And Self-Destruction

February 21, 2018 by

1

By Andrew C McCarthy ~ Mueller’s indictment is an ineffectual response to a provocation by Russia. The Russians are engaged in “information warfare” against the United States. That was the big soundbite at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s press conference Friday afternoon, announcing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s election-meddling indictment against 13 Russians and three Russian […]

The Clinton Dossier

February 20, 2018 by

2

By Daniel Greenfield ~ There were many damning revelations in the Nunes memo released by a House Intelligence Committee vote.

The document known as […]

February 13, 2018 by

1

By Lt. Colonel James G. Zumwalt, USMC (RET) ~ A popular weekly television show, running from 1957-1963, was the Western “Have Gun, Will Travel.” Its star was a hired gun named “Paladin.” But he was not your typical hired gun. Paladin was driven by a moral compass that had him fighting for truth and justice. […]

FBI: American Gestapo

December 20, 2017 by

2

By Lawrence Sellin Ph.D. ~ Any government agency with law enforcement and surveillance authority that uses those powers for political purposes is the definition of a secret police, no better than the Nazi Gestapo or the Soviet KGB. There is indeed probable cause to conclude, meaning indictable offenses, that employees of the Department of Justice […]

December 15, 2017 by

2

By Clay Waters ~ Robert Mueller is the liberal New York Times‘ new favorite prosecutor. (Being criticized by Donald Trump and the Republican Congress will do that to you.)

Watergate Was Nothing Compared To This

December 14, 2017 by

1

By Tom McLaughlin ~ First thing every morning I skipped down two flights of stairs to get the Boston Globe because I couldn’t wait to read the latest developments in the Watergate scandal then bringing down the Nixon Administration.

December 14, 2017 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ There are many reasons to dislike Donald Trump.

Nothing About Collusion

By Dr. Michael Ledeen ~ While working with General Michael Flynn on The Field of Fight, I interviewed many of his former colleagues in order to better understand my co-author.

December 2, 2017 by

Democrats, FBI, Both Behind Report Claiming Trump Hired Hookers

June 26, 2017 by

2

By Andrew Bolt ~ Remember the excited media reporting of a report claiming Trump conspired with Russia and even hired hookers to urinate on his bed? Turns out it was the work of operatives paid by the Democrats in the vilest example so far of faked news – and the FBI paid, too: The Senate […]

The Disconnect In The Search For Russia-Gate

June 18, 2017 by

4

By Roger Aronoff ~ It appears that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has realized that the investigation he has been chosen to oversee is a dead end.

The FBI’s Pathetic Track Record On Terrorism

June 15, 2017 by

3

By Cliff Kincaid ~ Former FBI Director James Comey has finally admitted publicly that President Donald Trump has not been under investigation, after months of deliberately leaving the impression that he was.

Comey Blows Up Trump Conspiracy Theories

June 9, 2017 by

1

By Andrew Bolt ~ Former FBI boss James Comey is a narcissist with an agenda and a nasty and unprofessional  habit of leaking, yet his testimony to Congress yesterday destroys the media conspiracy theories. No, the FBI was not investigating Trump. No, Comey is not alleging Trump tried to obstruct justice in telling him he […]

Does The FBI Have Anything At All On President Trump?

May 22, 2017 by

2

By Andrew Bolt ~ Even the Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, who blames Fox News for the end of US civilisation, smells a rat: What exactly is the FBI investigating? Why was it kept secret from other intelligence chiefs, if that’s what happened? That matters, if we’re trying to gauge what happened last week. Is it a FARA […]

The Bipartisan Case Against James Comey

May 13, 2017 by

0

By Andrew C McCarthy ~ The stated rationale for Comey’s firing was that he damaged the FBI’s credibility. Jim Comey has been a good friend to me over the years. I have disagreed strenuously with a number of decisions he made in connection with the Hillary Clinton investigation – with his rationales and with the […]
