rat-corneredIt’s fun to watch the rats scurry as the walls close in.

On Inauguration Day last year, January 20, 2017, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice emailed a lengthy memo to herself about a meeting in the Oval Office January 5th.

Ms. Rice sent the memo at 12:15 p.m., 15 minutes after Donald Trump had become president, at the last possible time her email could be included in Obama administration archives. And after anyone else in the Obama administration could have seen it.

Attending that meeting, she said, were President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and herself.

The topic was the Steele dossier and the FBI investigation of “collusion” between Team Trump and the Russians.

What it exposed was collusion between Comey’s FBI and the Obama White House to lie about Trump.



panic-attackPanic makes people stupid – especially if they aren’t too smart to begin with.

The hysterical, hyperbolic, hypocritical and often hilarious efforts of Democrats and the WSM (Waste Stream Media) to prevent publication of the Nunes Memo backfired, bigly.  Though old news to TTPers, this was the first time millions of Americans heard about FISAgate.

You’d think Dems/WSM would learn from experience. They haven’t. Now that the memo’s been published, Democrats say it isn’t true. Rep. Adam Schiff, ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has written a counter-memo.

BEEG mistake. There’s a mountain of evidence, still classified, that proves what Nunes said is true. By saying it isn’t, Democrats play into the hands of Republicans who want this evidence made public.

Last Friday’s HFR (2/02) outlined the batting order. Nunes leads off, followed by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA). DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz bats cleanup.

I watch in slack-jawed admiration as a very stable genius and his allies choreograph release of evidence of the literally unbelievable corruption in his predecessor’s administration.



scandal-of-democrats If a tree falls in the forest, but no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?  Not if it’s a Democrat scandal.  It’s gotten so that “scandal” should be the collective noun for Dems – like a school of fish, a leap of leopards, a pride of lions, a scandal of Democrats.

If any of these five scandals got half the attention Watergate did, each would be considered the worst in American history.

After we itemize all five, we’ll discuss the most difficult task facing President Trump in draining a swamp much deeper, wider, and more fetid than we imagined:  how to get the truth past the MSM Bodyguard of Liars?



The VSG – Very Stable Genius – at work

The VSG – Very Stable Genius – at work

If you watched the opening of DACA negotiations Tuesday (1/09), you saw a master negotiator play a strong hand flawlessly.

Playing the role of an even-handed moderator earnestly seeking a deal, the president dominated the room. Breitbart was impressed. So were normally very critical MSM journalists.

Not bad for a senile moron who spends 17 hours a day watching the Gorilla Channel. Just by permitting the session to be covered by the news media, Trump slew the leftist narratives arising from Michael Wolff’s hilarious book and Yale Psychiatry Prof. Bandy Lee’s preposterous long distance diagnosis.

“Brilliant move by POTUS,” said Martha McCallum of Fox News. “In the middle of the Wolf onslaught he allows live coverage of him working the table with Dems/GOP on immigration. Thoughtful, policy proficient, and determined to get a deal.”

The president has framed the debate so that if there is a deal, he wins. If there isn’t, Democrats lose.



sperry-trump-tweetsMy esteemed TTP colleague Michael Ledeen offered his explanation to this puzzle today: Nothing About Collusion.  I have a conjecture that might serve as an alternative.

For ‘tis a puzzle.  Why would LTG Michael Flynn lie to the FBI about telephone conversations he had with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak that were not illegal, improper, or unusual?

As a career intelligence officer, Flynn had to know we were listening in on Kislyak’s phone calls. He ought to have assumed the FBI would listen to the intercepts, or read transcripts of them.

As in fact the FBI did, the Washington Post reported the day before Flynn's interview.

Since the FBI already knew what Flynn said to Kislyak, determined he’d done nothing wrong, why was the FBI interviewing him?

We may get answers to those questions – and much more – very soon.



Judge Roy Moore

Judge Roy Moore

The decision of Senate leaders to have the Senate Ethics Committee “investigate” the charge of sexual harassment against Sen. Al Franken is a blunder for which the good guys should make the bad guys pay dearly.

What’s to investigate? The photo (taken by Al’s brother) proves beyond a shadow of a doubt he felt up Leeanne Tweeden while she was sleeping. Franken admitted it, though he claims it was just innocent fun.

All there is to decide is if feeling up a sleeping woman is an offense grave enough to warrant expulsion from the Senate.

If it isn’t, the hypocrisy with regard to the treatment of Roy Moore is glaringly obvious.

If it is, the fact McConnell et al think the charge against Franken should be investigated before any action is taken against him offers Moore a clear line of attack/defense. Either way, Moore wins.



Saudi Arabia is shaking up the world. Among those most rattled are Iran, Islamist terrorists, DC swamp things, Democrats and Twitter.

The earthquake began last weekend when police arrested dozens of prominent Saudis – including 11 princes and 4 government ministers-- in an anti-corruption crackdown.

The biggest fish is Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a grandson of Saudi Arabia’s founder, whose personal fortune is estimated at $17 billion.

Alwaleed bin Talal is a major donor to the Clinton Foundation, a client of the Podesta Group, and – bye the bye – the guy who paid Barack Obama’s tuition at Harvard.


The Saudis intercepted a ballistic missile fired from Yemen at Riyadh Saturday (11/4). KSA’s foreign ministry blamed Iran, called this “an act of war.”


saad-haririAlso Saturday, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigned during a visit to Riyadh. There was a plot to kill him, Hariri said. Hariri’s father, former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, was murdered in 2005.

Wherever Iran settles, it sows discord, devastation and destruction,” Hariri said in a televised address from Riyadh.

Aggressions by Hezbollah are tantamount to a declaration of war against Saudi Arabia, KSA’s Gulf Affairs minister said Tuesday (11/7).


When will the storm winds from KSA blow into the USA? Before the next HFR, I bet.

Richard Pollock summarizes here why now it’s the Democrats who have a Russian problem.


Democrats won big Tuesday (11/7) in New Jersey (ho hum), and in Virginia (big deal). Ed Gillespie did worse than any GOP gubernatorial candidate in more than 30 years.

Exit polls make clear the reason for the debacle.


In 1979, when he was 32, Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore felt up a 14-year-old girl, the Washington Post reported yesterday (11/9).

If the allegations are true, Moore should resign. I doubt they are, for two reasons:




truck-rampage-suspectSayfullo Saipov, 29, an immigrant from Uzbekistan, drove a rented pickup truck into a bike lane in lower Manhattan Tuesday (10/31), killing 8, injuring 12. He was a known wolf.

Saipov couldn’t have gotten into this country under normal procedures. He was a winner in the Visa Diversity Lottery, a PC horror that permits random foreigners to get a green card simply by luck.


Antifa leaders in the U.S. are in close contact with ISIS and other Islamist terror groups, according to an FBI report cited by author Ed Klein.

This group and their connections with radical Islamic groups must be disrupted and destroyed,” concludes the report, which Klein said was delivered to Acting Director Andrew McCabe July 11.


Bowe Bergdahl will serve no jail time for desertion and “misbehavior before enemy.” Among those outraged by the sentence is President Trump.


The CIA released Wednesday (11/1) Osama bin Laden’s files, captured during the raid on his “hideout” in Pakistan.

The most newsworthy disclosure is the mullahs in Iran were in cahoots with al Qaida. Zero has some ‘splainin’ to do.


Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged Paul Manafort and business partner Rick Gates Monday (10/30) with money laundering and failing to register as foreign agents.

Though the fact Manafort worked (briefly) for Trump led MSM reports, the charges stem from work Manafort did for Viktor Yanukovych, a former Ukrainian president who was a Kremlin stooge, between 2006 and 2015.

The indictment of Manafort and Gates is damning on their financial dealings, but it makes no mention of Trump, collusion or the campaign,” noted ABC White House correspondent Jonathan Karl.

Manafort’s indictment is “bad news for Trump,” the MSM said. The opposite is true.

To keep moonbat hopes alive, the Lying Swine grasp at this slender straw:




hillary-likes-moneyFor leftists, the fit is hitting the shan at an ever accelerating rate.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC “helped” pay for the controversial Steele dossier, the Washington Post reported Tuesday (10/25).

The WaPo has known this for at least a year. Why report it now?

Bear in mind the Post publishes major stories only if (a) they advance a leftist narrative, or (b) they’re doing damage control.

So why would Fusion GPS – and the WaPo – throw Hillary under the bus?  For a clue, read this NBC report from Monday (10/24).



russian-bribery-plotThe Hill newspaper broke Tuesday (10/17) what is, hands down, the worst political scandal in American history. So far, crickets from most of the rest of the MSM. But the frantic efforts of the Lying Swine to cover it up, and to distract attention from it, will fall apart soon.

After massive donations were made to the Clinton Foundation, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved the sale of 20 percent of U.S. uranium reserves to Russia, Peter Schweizer of the Government Accountability Institute reported in 2015.

Now The Hill provides the sordid backstory:


What most of the MSM “reported” instead of the Uranium One scandal was the claim by Rep. Frederika Wilson (D-Fla) President Trump was insensitive when he telephoned the widow of Army Sgt. LaDavid Johnson, killed in Niger Oct. 4, to express his condolences.

Gen. John Kelly, one of whose sons was killed in Afghanistan, let her have it yesterday (10/19). Watch the whole thing. If your eyes are dry when you finish, you have a heart of stone, feces for brains, vote Democrat.

* * * *

The Russia collusion story shifted sharply away from the leftist narrative this week.

Officials of Fusion GPS took the Fifth Amendment Wednesday (10/18) rather than tell the House Intelligence Committee who paid them for the phony Steele dossier, which looks more and more like Russian disinformation.

After all these months, the only evidence of collusion with Russia is of Democrats colluding with Russia. It’s piling up.

New FBI information about corruption in a Clinton-approved uranium deal with Russia raises questions about Clinton’s actions after the FBI broke up a deep-cover Russian spy ring in 2010,” the Daily Caller reported today.


Why yes, Director James Comey did indeed draft a statement exonerating Hillary Clinton months before the investigation into her sending classified information on an insecure private server was completed, the FBI has confirmed.



Iran isn’t complying with the terms of the nuclear deal the Obama administration negotiated with the mullahs, President Trump said today (10/13). He laid out a new strategy to make certain the “radical regime” never acquires nuclear weapons.

The president’s speech was nuanced and masterful. Even McCain liked it.


President Trump issued an executive order yesterday (10/12) to permit people to buy health insurance across state lines. Rand Paul explains here why this is a big deal.

Trump also will end subsidies to health insurance companies. The subsidies are expensive, and illegal.

Earlier, Trump overturned Obama’s contraception mandate. He’s just begun to dismantle Zero’s pride and joy, the president tweeted today.


Harvey Weinstein was fired Sunday (10/8) from the company he and his brother founded, accelerating his startling plunge from one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood and most influential Democrat contributors nationally to pariah.


Catalonian independence isn’t working out the way the Russians and George Soros hoped.


The NFL inched closer to capitulation as the most epic blunder in the history of marketing bled into its third week.


It’s difficult to overstate how much harm the Harvey Weinstein scandal does to President Trump’s enemies, and ours.



It wasn’t the worst mass shooting in American history. But what happened in Las Vegas last Sunday night (10/1) may have been the domestic equivalent of 9/11.

Or the worst Islamist terror attack since then.

Just one shooter – Stephen Paddock, 64 – killed 58 people attending a country music festival, injured 489 more.

But just one shooter doesn’t mean no conspiracy.

We presume he must have had help,” Clark County (Las Vegas) Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Wednesday (10/5).


When leftists call conservatives “haters,” they’re projecting.

She’s “not even sympathetic” to the shooting victims because “country music fans often are Republican gun toters,” said Hayley Geftman-Gold, a vice president in the legal department at CBS, on her Facebook page.

CBS, to its credit, promptly fired Geftman-Gold. This sleaze bitch should be fired too.


Also last Sunday, a man shouting “Allahu Akbar” stabbed two young women to death at the train station in Marseilles, France.

In Edmonton, Alberta the night before, a man drove a white Chevrolet Malibu into a police barricade outside the stadium where the Edmonton Eskimos play, striking a police officer.

Both “lone wolves” were known wolves.


Operation Katrina began last Friday (9/29) when San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz blamed President Trump for SNAFUs in providing aid to Puerto Ricans devastated by Hurricane Maria.


The most epic blunder in the history of marketing bled into its second week, with the NFL trying – and failing – to find a way to declare victory while surrendering.


The New York Times outed big shot Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein Wednesday (10/5) as a serial sexual predator, embarrassing Democrats generally, the Clintons and the Obamas in particular.



turn-off-the-nflI live in Pittsburgh.  You can imagine the contempt I feel for the Steelers right now and their execrable coach.  But I also love the way Trump is playing them, and the entire Leftie cabal, like a fiddle.

Coach Mike Tomlin thought he’d found a way around the dilemma the NFL created for teams with its knee jerk reaction to remarks President Trump made Friday night (9/22).  Tomlin hadn’t.  Same with scores of players on other teams.

Isn’t it amazing how easily the president goads adversaries into cutting their own throats? He baits the hook, they snap at it like trout.

With a few remarks and a couple of tweets, he triggered an indefensible “Full Kaepernick” PC response, for which Social Justice Warriors in the NFL will pay dearly.  Yet that’s only half of Trump’s two-fer here.

Often, the president tweets or speechifies provocatively to make the Lying Swine chase rabbits. Was there something he wanted to divert their attention from?  Could it be it was “the Rod from God”?



art-of-president-dealsRelax. Calm yourselves. Things are going lots better than President Trump’s enemies – and some who claim to be his friends – say they are.

Read and watch President Trump’s speech to the UN General Assembly yesterday (9/19), up on To The Point today. No president before him has told so many truths so directly to pompous jerks who needed to hear them. This president didn’t kiss ass. He kicked it.

His UN speech is the clearest statement of MAGA Mr. Trump has yet made. This is not a president who has “flipped” to Democrats, or is being bamboozled by them.

Nor is this a president who is intimidated by, or being drugged by “globalists” on the White House staff.

This is a president who is clearly in charge, who knows what he wants to do, is doing it.

Mr. Trump revels in deal making, which involves give and take. The key to success is to give up what is unimportant to you to get things you really want.



patience-grasshopperIf Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller were wearing waders and carrying a rod and reel, he couldn’t signal more clearly he’s on a fishing expedition. Every lawyer on his staff contributed to Dems. He’s said to be looking into things that have nothing to do with the election, employing Gestapo tactics.

Meanwhile, Robert Wray was confirmed as FBI director Aug. 1. I haven’t heard a peep from him since. Perhaps he’s still hanging pictures in his office, finding his way to the rest room and the cafeteria. I’m pretty sure he’s doing something. But I’ve no idea what it is.

Many conservatives want Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired, because he hasn’t indicted Hillary or fired Mueller yet. I think haven’t figured out the Trump-Sessions feud was theater; that the president wouldn’t have gone through that charade without some purpose in mind.

Which is why this is a request for patience.



The Prince and the POTUS

The Prince and the POTUS

Things change. But if change isn’t punctuated by dramatic events, we tend to be slow the grasp its significance.

Consider how differently Americans regarded Germany and Japan in 1961 than in 1945.

The changes in the Middle East in the 16 years since 9/11 are almost as profound as were the changes in Germany and Japan between 1945 and 1961. But because they weren’t ushered in by the atomic bomb, we haven’t paid as much attention to them.

I’ve regarded Saudi Arabia as our most dangerous enemy in the Middle East, because the Saudi royal family financed Wahhabi madrassas and mosques all over the world, Wahhabism/Salafism is the source of Sunni Islamist terror.

Yet, suddenly, that’s all changed now, due to a set of extraordinary circumstances that both a Saudi Prince affectionately known as MbS and a new American President understand and are cooperating on.  Here’s the story of the Prince and the POTUS.



It seems as if whenever Jack Wheeler asks me to fill in on the HFR (he’s in Kaliningrad), we have a tumultuous week.

We may look back upon it as the week in which Democrats, the Lying Swine, PC corporate fascists and the GOPe completely lost their minds.

Those whom President Trump would destroy, he first makes mad.

Key events since last week’s HFR were:

*The riot in Boston Saturday (8/19).

*The collision Monday (8/21) of the USS John S. McCain, a guided missile destroyer, with a freighter off the coast of Singapore. (This is a bigger deal than most Americans realize.)

*President Trump’s address to the nation Monday night announcing a new strategy in Afghanistan.

*The president’s speech to a huge crowd at a rally in Phoenix Wednesday (8/23) and the rioting afterwards.

*Hurricane Harvey striking Texas last night. (Who is more to blame for it? President Trump? Nazis? Confederates?)



fighting-fascismNazis are bad.  The KKK is bad.

Way more than 99 percent of Americans agree.  People who embrace Nazism or KKK racism are a tiny fraction of our people.  The Anti-Defamation League puts the KKK membership at some 3,000 – 1,000th of 1%.

But Leftists assert President Trump and his supporters are closet Nazis. This is pathological guilt by association, Alinsky hypocrisy on steroids. The world of Orwell’s 1984 exists in Charlottesville.

So it’s critically important now to remember:  The Left always projects.  They always smear their opponents of being what they are, proponents of fascist thuggery.

The entire chorus of the Left, from fascist Antifa thugs to every Lying Swine journo is screaming that James Fields’ “terrorism” proves that every white person in America is a crypto-racist-terrorist.

Here’s a question: If Fields had shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he mowed down pedestrians, would anyone in the MSM call what he did “terror?”  Would there be multiple stories worrying about the danger of Whiteophobia with headlines “White-Americans Fear Backlash After Charlottesville”?  Like the PBS headline of June 15, 2016: “Muslim-Americans Fear Backlash After Orlando Mass Shooting.”



North Korea threatens to attack Guam with nuclear weapons. So Democrats and the Lying Swine attack… President Trump.

“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” the president said Tuesday (8/8). “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

That was “bombast,” a “rhetorical grenade,” said the Washington Post in an editorial.  The president “went rogue” with his “bellicose language,” said ABC News.  Trump’s “reckless rhetoric” increases tensions, said Senate Democrat leader  Chuck Schumer.

Yet President Clinton used starker language in 1993 to describe what would happen if North Korea used a nuclear weapon.

It would mean the end of their country as they know it,” Clinton said.

The difference between what Clinton said then and what Trump said this week is this president really means it.  And he’s making very sure the Chinese know it.



hr-mcmasterBe skeptical of everything you read about chaos and dissension in the administration.  Remember the Lying Swine report only negative things about Trump, often make them up.

The Lying Swine expect discord, because they think they’re smart, Trump isn’t.  Trump takes advantage of their bias, expectations and egos by giving them rabbits to chase. All warfare is deception.

It isn’t just leftists who chase rabbits. The fundamental “fact” on which the charge McMaster is plotting a coup is false.  Here’s why.



mccain-gaggingSen. John McCain’s gigantic eff you to Donald Trump ultimately may benefit the president.

Senate Democrats were giddy when Maverick and nominal Republicans Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska joined all 48 of them to block even modest changes to Obamacare.

McCain is the greatest senator since…Ted Kennedy, said Democrat leader Chuck Schumer.

Since so few study history, I doubt many Dems know what a “Pyrrhic victory” is. They may find out.

Here’s why.  And here’s why McCain is going to be dead soon.



war-based-on-deceptionTwo days after being appointed White House Director of Communications, Anthony Scaramucci appeared on the political talk shows on CBS, CNN and Fox News this Sunday (7/23).   “Mooch” was impressive.

Smart, confident, articulate, quick on his feet, Mooch treats the Lying Swine with the contempt they deserve.  Just look at how he handled a BBC interviewer on the White House lawn yesterday (7/26):

Mooch shouldn’t be caught in a lie, or engage in gross hyperbole. But you and I shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that Trump, and others in the White House, routinely deceive the news media.

The Lying Swine lie constantly about Trump, so this isn’t immoral, and it’s good strategy. The president realizes he’s in a war, recognizes who are his main enemies, is following Sun Tzu’s advice to defeat them: All war is deception.

Trump’s enemies assume they’re smart, he isn’t. It’s exactly the opposite – so much so the president takes advantage of their assumption.  From which arises the question:  Is Trump Sun Tzu-ing the media on Jeff Sessions?  



never-trumpers-are-done[This letter to Rich Lowry, Editor of National Review, was sent today]

Dear Rich:

You should be ashamed of having published “The President Can Be Put On Tilt” on June 9. Even cash-strapped conservative journals of opinion should have editors and fact checkers.

Let’s walk through Michael Brendan Dougherty’s farrago of snark and nonsense.

According to Dougherty, “The very fact of the hearing was an unforced disaster for the president.” Even Chris Matthews figured out the opposite is true.

According to Dougherty, “The Saudis seem to have played Trump like a fiddle. Their cartoonish flattery of Trump seems to have led him to tweet angrily against the latest enemy of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, even though Qatar has been hosting the American military for 15 years”.

Qatar is the leading financier of Islamist terror, their banker, a “safe place” where terrorists wanted in other countries can relax in luxury.

I was a Marine, a Green Beret, a Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force. Nothing is more important to me than the security of the United States. Nothing ticks me off more than twerps like Dougherty who side with America’s enemies for domestic political reasons.



trump-on-middle-eastSoon you’ll be safer from Islamic terror in the Middle East than in Europe.

Something wonderful I never thought I’d live long enough to see is happening: For most Sunni Muslims, the Dar al Harb is no more.

The Koran divides the world between the Dar al Islam (zone of peace), and the Dar al Harb (zone of war). War is to continue until all submit to Allah.

Since May 21st, however, peoples of other faiths no longer are to be regarded as “infidels” to be killed, conquered, or treated as second-class citizens (dhimmis), the leaders of nearly all Sunni majority countries declared during President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia.

What you are about to read will astound you.  For example -- watch this – it will blow you away.  It certainly blew away the terrorist:



The New York Times recycled from March Wednesday (5/17) a false story intended to inflame Trump/Russia hysteria.

“Trump Team Knew Flynn Was Under Investigation Before He Came to the White House,” the headline said.

In a letter dated Nov. 30, the Justice Department notified Mr. Flynn that it was scrutinizing his lobbying work,” the Times said.

Flynn was appointed National Security Adviser Nov. 17.  How, might one ask, does Nov. 30 come before Nov. 17?

To see how low the “mainstream” media have sunk, let’s unpack the New York Times story from the day before (5/16) that may have led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel.

“President Trump asked (FBI Director James Comey) to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser… according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting,” wrote reporter Michael Schmidt.

Schmidt never saw the memo.  As you can see in the video clip above, MSNBC’s Brian Williams asks Schmidt, “Why is it that the (New York) Times has the story but not the memo?”  Schmidt’s answer: "Someone that had seen them recounted details to me..."

Yep, the motto of the illustrious New York Times is now “All the news that’s fit to fake.” So here’s a suggestion of what to do about it.



buzz-states-treasonThere was a time, not so long ago, when Democrats and journalists denounced guilt by association.

Here’s an example from the 1950s: Screenwriter A is a Communist. Screenwriter B is a friend of Screenwriter A. Therefore, Screenwriter B is a Communist too.

There were Communists in the State Department, Sen. Joseph McCarthy charged, changing the number from speech to speech.  He offered no evidence to support his innuendo.

The great irony, of course, is that in McCarthy’s day, the State Department was riddled with traitors – just like today.  Yet McCarthy was destroyed politically for his evidence-free accusations.

McCarthyites were thus laughed at for seeing Commies under their beds.   Democrats are modern-day McCarthyites who see Russians under their’s.  The great irony here is that while, however incompetently, McCarthyites of the 50s were trying to expose treason, Democrat McCarthyites of today are committing it.. 



fed-up-w-comeyMy column yesterday (5/09) on “Second Thoughts on Comey” didn’t age well. Here are my third thoughts:

  1. Evidently President Trump does think Comey is a putz. If so, I think that’s primarily because of his role in promoting the Steele dossier.

“FBI Director James Comey considered an anti-Trump dossier compiled by a former British intelligence officer so important that he insisted the document be included in January’s final intelligence community report on Russian meddling in the election,” Fox News reported May 6.

  1. Even if Comey weren’t a putz, he’d have had to go sooner or later. His name is mud with the public. Neither Democrats nor Republicans on Capitol Hill trust him. Morale at the FBI has plummeted.

I have four more – including how Trump loves gaslighting the Lying Swine.  He’s done that in spades with Comey.



DiFi in despair

DiFi in despair

Perhaps the only thing most Democrats and Republicans agree on is FBI Director James Comey is a putz.

I’m not willing to go there – yet.

Look at the expression on the face of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Cal) in this CNN interview last Wednesday (5/3). Have you ever seen such sadness, despondency, dejection, despair?

DiFi is ranking Dem on the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. On Tuesday (5/2), DiFi was at the CIA for a briefing on Russian meddling in the election. The CNN interview took place shortly after Comey’s contentious public Judiciary Committee hearing I wrote about last week.

But immediately after that public hearing, Comey also gave her and Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) a closed-door classified brief on Russian meddling, Feinstein said.

If DiFi had just learned an anvil, a safe, a locomotive was about to drop on Dems, that could explain why she looked as if someone shot her dog.



youre-fired-comeyHe was helping to bring down President Trump, “Buzzfeed Ben” Smith thought when he published the Steele dossier Jan. 11.

Instead, he may have sealed the doom of FBI Director James Comey.

Vladimir Putin began plotting to make Mr. Trump president more than five years ago, claims the dossier compiled by former MI-6 officer Christopher Steele. It consists of 17 reports allegedly made between June 20 and Dec. 13 last year.

Parts of the dossier began circulating in Washington last July. Senior U.S. intelligence officials gave President Obama and President-elect Trump a two-page synopsis of the allegations in it when both were briefed on Russian meddling in the election, CNN reported Jan. 10.

That prompted Buzzfeed Ben to publish all 35 pages of the dossier – a blunder of epic proportions.

Innuendo-rich stories implying Mr. Trump was in Putin’s pocket could be justified by oblique references to the Steele dossier – the Washington Post, for instance, has mentioned it 150 times to date -- but only so long as the dossier itself was kept in the shadows.

Once those knowledgeable could read it, the jig was up.

Garbage,” said one former CIA officer. “A rather ham-handed attempt at fabricating a document,” said another. “Hokey as Hell,” said a third.

“It is hard to believe how anyone who claims to know anything about intelligence operations, propaganda and disinformation would believe anything in it,” said a former senior National Security Council staffer.

Anyone in the National Security Division of the FBI who didn’t realize immediately the Steele dossier is a clumsy fraud has no business being in the National Security Division of the FBI.  Any FBI Director suckered by the fraud has no business being FBI Director.



Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight 1944

Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight 1944

Abroad, Abu Ivanka al Amriki is loved by America’s friends, feared by our enemies.

But at home, Donald Trump is the Rodney Dangerfield of presidents. He “don’t get no respect” from critics Left and Right, or from many who claim to be his strongest supporters.

Critics on the left and right assume they’re smart, Mr. Trump isn’t. They should rethink that.

So as a carrier task force steams toward North Korea, Topic A in the “mainstream” and conservative media is whether Steve Bannon is on his way out in favor of Jared Kushner.

Thus I wonder if the Bannon/Kushner feud might be a ruse to gaslight the Lying Swine. While they’re running down rabbit holes, the president quietly is doing important things.

(Note:  “Gaslighting” is manipulating people’s sense of reality to their detriment.  It comes from the 1944 film Gaslight starring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer.)



Arabs and Israelis Agree

Arabs and Israelis Agree

Across the Arab world, reports the London Telegraph, people have found a new hero.  They call him Abu Ivanka Al-Amriki. 

Israelis too are hailing him as their new hero.  They call him President Donald Trump.  Abu Ivanka Al-Amriki, you see, is Arabic for “The Father of Ivanka The American.”

"Maybe you in the West hate Trump, but he has already done far more for us than Obama," said Najim Hassan, who lives in the Syrian city of Idlib that Assad nerve-gassed, to a Telegraph reporter. "We love him because he does more than he says, he's a man of action and at least he gives us something to hope for."

Which brings us to this question:

Ever hear of the Islamic Military Alliance Against Terror?  IMAAT was formed in December 2015, the brainchild of Saudi Arabia’s Defense Minister, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, with 34 Moslem countries joining. 

Last December in response to Trump’s election, Oman – a holdout due to IMAAT targeting the terrorist mullahs of Iran with which it has good relations – joined.

You may not have heard of that either, since all of this is being ignored by the American news media.  That’s their mistake. Before I explain why, ponder these facts:



The Senate confirmed Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch today (4/7), after nuking the filibuster on a party line vote yesterday.

* * * *

Early this morning (4/7), Tomahawk cruise missiles from U.S. warships struck the air base in Syria from which the chemical weapons attack that shocked the world Tuesday was launched.

“Tearful Syrians cheer U.S. missile raid,” said the London Daily Mail, which has some great pictures.

“I’ll name my son Donald,” said Qusai Zakarya, who survived a chemical attack in 2013.

President Trump just put an end to the Obama era of vacillation and cowardice,” said former Army intelligence officer Ralph Peters.

Remember when Obama Secretary of State John Kerry and National Security Adviser Susan Rice assured us “100 percent” of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile had been destroyed?

In the special election for the House seat formerly held by HHS Secretary Tom Price, Democrat Jon Ossoff is sinking.

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee will recuse himself from the Russia investigation. This seems like a mighty big scalp for Dems. But a former flack for Hillary freaked when she learned who will replace him.

Dems use the appearance of impropriety to divert attention from actual impropriety. But now Devin Nunes will have more time to investigate Obama administration spying on political opponents.

I don’t know anything about it, President Obama’s national security adviser told PBS Mar. 22.

I didn’t break the law when I did it, Susan Rice told MSNBC Tuesday (4/4).



Jack Wheeler is off to the Himalayas, so I’m filling in for him this week and next.

If you were tired of all the winning, you’re in luck. President Trump’s job approval has fallen to record lows since the Obamacare repeal/replace debacle.

You may not have noticed – because there’s been so little reporting on it – things are getting really tense with North Korea.

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed a week from today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) promised Tuesday (3/28).

He’ll have to nuke the filibuster to do it. That’s what Mitch plans to do. Even Susan Collins, R-ME, is on board.

He’ll soon cut federal funds to “sanctuary cities,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday (3/28). DOJ will dole out $4 billion in grants this year.

More than 300 cities, counties and states forbid cops from cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). They’ve protected more than 17,000 criminal aliens.

Evelyn Farkas, a deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Obama administration, inadvertently outed herself as a source of leaks about Team Trump.

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has offered to testify about Mr. Trump’s connections to Russia in exchange for full immunity.



Obama and his FBI Director

Obama and his FBI Director

The FBI is investigating Russian meddling in our election, including “whether there was any coordination” between the Trump campaign and Russia, Director James Comey said at a public hearing of the House Intelligence Committee Monday (3/20).

There is no evidence to date Russian meddling affected the outcome of the election, or that anyone in the Trump campaign colluded with the Russkies, Comey admitted.

The Russians were more interested in messing with the U.S. and with Hillary than in trying to elect Trump, whom they didn’t think could win, Comey said.

Two questions.  Why is he then testifying at all?  Why indeed is this Obama holdover still running the FBI?



trump-amundsenAs the dust settles a week after President Trump accused former President Obama of spying on him, it’s clear:

The president’s tweets shifted the focus from “Are Trump and Sessions in bed with the Russians?” to “Did Obama spy on Trump?

When the attorney general flipped the special prosecutor meme on Democrats, we got an indication of how profound the shift has been:

Congress now will investigate Russian meddling in our election, AND surveillance of Mr. Trump.

Since there isn’t evidence Russian meddling affected the outcome of the election, or that the Trump campaign collaborated with the Russkies, the president can only benefit from having Congress spell that out.

Is all this because the President got lucky after a reckless tweet?  Let’s ask famed polar explorer Roald Amundsen.



obama-easter-bunnyIn these tweets early Saturday (3/4), President Trump declared nuclear war on former President Obama.

Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower,” the president said. “This is Nixon/Watergate.

It isn’t true, and he deserved it, said “senior intelligence officials” and Democrats. CNN and MSNBC anchors who breathlessly reported both didn’t seem to notice these claims are mutually contradictory.

Louise Mensch of HeatStreet reported last October a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant had been issued for a server in Trump Tower. The Guardian reported it Jan. 11. Former U.S. Attorney Andy McCarthy commented on it that day.

Mr. Obama didn’t know about the FISA warrant, said spokesmen Kevin Lewis and Ben Rhodes.

Do you think the FBI would eavesdrop on the Trump campaign without informing the president? Do you believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny?



Pelosi listening to Trump destroy her party

Pelosi listening to Trump destroy her party

President Trump is an acquired taste. After Tuesday’s boffo address to a joint session of Congress, millions more are acquiring it.

It was the first time the president’s words have risen to the level of his deeds. I loved even the parts announcing policies I don’t like, because they are superb politics.  How superb?  Just look at Shell-Shocked Pelosi to see how.

I’m awed by how well Team Trump staged the event. They anticipated what the Dems and the Lying Swine were likely to do, and sandbagged them.  One example:

By inviting victims of violent crime perpetrated by illegal immigrant felons – especially Jamiel Shaw Sr., father of a black teenager murdered by an illegal immigrant gang member -- Trump made those Dems who made illegal immigrants their guests look as petty and small as in fact they are.

And did you hear Democrats groan when the president announced plans to highlight illegal immigrant crime?



This tumultuous week has been good for the President of the United States, bad for an increasingly strident, hysterical, dishonest, desperate leftist fascist elite.
Those who obsess about what the president says overlook what’s truly important. Prominent skeptics in the conservative intelligentsia are catching on...

We’re going to enforce the law, Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said in two memoranda Monday (2/20).

Kelly’s memos call for a mass roundup of illegals, say the usual suspects. That isn’t true, as an irritated Secretary Kelly said during a news conference Thursday (2/23).

Muslim immigrants in a Stockholm suburb rioted Monday night (2/20), burning autos, smashing windows, throwing rocks at police.
This was awkward for the “mainstream” media, who had spent the 48 hours preceding claiming this sort of thing never happens in Sweden.

Cowardly Republican lawmakers are ducking out of town meetings to avoid having to face constituents angry about Trump and plans to dismantle Obamacare, “report” the AP and other news organs.
What they don’t tell you is the protests are being orchestrated by Indivisible Guide, a George Soros funded group;

lt-gen-mcmasterIn a snarky tweet Sunday (2/19), Bill Kristol asked of conservatives who are “rationalizing” Donald Trump’s presidency: “In your heart, don’t you know you’re wrong?”

“Actually, Bill, some of us think there is more to the man than his outlandish comments, e.g. his cabinet, his regulatory moves, legislative agenda,” responded Brit Hume, the best news anchor in my lifetime.

Amen, Brit.  I’ve been blown away by what he’s done since winning the election.

Trump has accomplished more in the first month of his presidency than any president since Ronald Reagan. John Hawkins lists here his most significant achievements. They are all the more impressive because of the unprecedented obstruction he’s had to overcome.

Trump’s latest McMaster stroke came Monday (2/20), when he chose Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster to be his National Security Adviser.

McMaster will have the right to choose his own staff, proof The Donald can learn from his mistakes, grow in office. I love lemonade. There’s no better lemonade than Trump lemonade.
