Robert Mueller: The Guest Who Won’t Leave

David Catron, The American Spectator

If the Democrats want to know where these hearings are really going, they should listen to the eagerness with which the Republicans are looking forward to questioning Mueller. Robert Mueller is the Beltway counterpart of the guest who won’t leave. And, like that feckless character, he has nothing to offer those who invited him to the soirée yet doesn’t have enough sense to know it. In the Nadler and Schiff hearings, he will bore everyone with self-aggrandizing sermons that will irritate his hosts, frustrate their guests in the press gallery, and bore the public. If the Dems know what they’re doing, they will give Mueller the bum’s rush before the voters quietly slip out of their obviously dead party.

The Ghost of Hunter Thompson Lurks over Mueller's Coming Testimony

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Hunter was a friend back in the seventies when we were both published by Rolling Stone's Straight Arrow Books. Wasn't Dr. Thompson's primary target always Richard M. Nixon? Indeed. But I have been thinking for a while now there is only one person in today's politics who, to me, completely and unequivocally resembles Richard Nixon and his name is Adam Schiff. (Okay, it's not entirely fair to Nixon. Schiff isn't as smart. But you get my point.) Of course, everyone we knew was a lefty or lib or something allegedly hip back in those days, but a lot of us have changed. Would Hunter have? Beats me, but I'd like to think so. At least somewhat. He always had a libertarian streak. I sure know he'd prefer Donald Trump to Joe Biden.

“A Completely Ludicrous Quote” Gets Treated As Real News

We agree with President Trump, there is a huge difference between a mistake of fact and the reporting of social media comments that today’s “journalists” treat as news and report without vetting. Some system of holding those who promulgate, and often profit from fake news needs to be found.

Democrats Have A Three-Part Plan For The Politics Of Impeachment

House Democrats have a well-thought-out plan to regain control of the federal government; part one is to push the message that President Trump is engaged in a coverup. Trump supporters should hit every social media platform, letter to the editor column and other public fora with the question “Cover up of what?” every time a Democrat or Left-leaning media personality surfaces to make the charge.

The Big Lie That Barr Lied

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Democrats are unnerved. Attorney General Barr is pursuing an inquiry into the Obama administration’s decision to conduct a foreign counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign. The time is now, they figure, to reprise the Ken Starr treatment: the ad hominem withering of an accomplished, highly capable official — in this instance, one who is daring to press questions that would have been answered two years ago if an incumbent Republican administration had spied on — er, monitored — a Democratic presidential campaign.

When the third time is not the charm

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The only “high crime and misdemeanor” left to imagine is that the attorney general “lied to Congress.” Without a shred of reliable evidence, that’s the thinnest fantasy of all. The third time is definitely not the charm. So what’s next? Is there a scandal about pilfered bedpans at the Department of Health and Human Services? Did the attorney general indulge a needed burp and forget to beg Jerrold Nadler’s pardon? What the Democrats need, in addition to a good 5-cent cigar, is a scandal with lasting power. President Trump and his side must remember that when your enemy is trying to destroy himself, the only smart thing to do is get out of his way and give him room. The crazies will do the rest.

It’s Not Collateral Damage To The Victims Of The Mueller Witch Hunt

Unlike Democrat and Far Left figures, such as Christine Blasey Ford, there is no million-dollar GoFundMe pot of gold at the end of the ordeal for Caputo, Corsi, Papadopoulos, Stone and the rest of those caught up in the hoax that became the Mueller investigation.

The Cynical Liars Who Started The Mueller Investigation Must Be Punished

Senator Lidsey Graham's investigators should start working their way backwards through the chain of command at the FBI and DOJ to find out who ordered the normal FISA warrant verification and factfinding process to be waived. Only at that point will the real extent of the conspiracy against President Trump be revealed, so that action may begin to punish those who perpetrated it.

These Democrats And #NeverTrumpers Must Apologize To America For The Russia Collusion Hoax

Will these Democrats and their #NeverTrump allies apologize to the country and to President Trump, his family and the innocent people whose lives they rent asunder? Tucker Carlson has said more than once, decent people apologize when they are wrong. As we see it, none of these Democrats and #NeverTrumpers can claim a shred of decency, but we should still demand that they apologize.

The Creepiest Part of the Lisa Page Transcript

David Catron, The American Spectator

Page and Strzok joined the investigation into collusion. Strzok soon indicated in a text to Page that he suspected “there was no big there there regarding any collusion with Trump” yet they both wanted to be part of the Mueller probe. So, if they had been bullied by the DOJ to let Clinton off the hook on her email server, and Strzok doubted that there was anything to the Russia collusion angle that both Clinton and the media were pushing, why would Page get further involved in another potential career killer? Love? Maybe, but I’m betting on fear.

Michael Cohen’s Traveling Mendacity Show

David Catron, The American Spectator

To get the full impact of Cohen’s performance, it’s necessary to watch the entire hearing. If you’re a Democrat, a member of the “news” media, or just a random TDS victim, you’ll like it. If you have fears for the fate of the nation, it will not give you peace of mind. If you believe the Democrats have any agenda other than bringing down the President, it will cure you of your delusions. Cohen was Trump’s willing partner in everything he did for a decade. Wednesday, he cut the man’s throat and blithely discussed the book offers his perfidy has already produced.

Ugly, Predicable and Irrelevant

What the Democrats, the anti-Trump media and the #NeverTrump crowd don’t seem to understand is that most of Michael Cohen's claims were aired in one form or another during the 2016 campaign and people still voted for Donald Trump.

Comey, Careless and Corrupt

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

In Comey’s book, Flynn’s fibbing to the FBI about a non-criminal chat with a foreign counterpart is very, very grave. But Comey considers it no big deal that he lied and called a FISA warrant “verified” when it manifestly wasn’t — a FISA warrant that turned Carter Page’s life upside down. The government tried to entrap him, shadowed him for a year or so, and vacuumed up his every communication — all on the basis of an uncorroborated “dossier” from a political opponent! And Comey to this day casts it all as a noble mistake.His egotism is only eclipsed by his criminal carelessness and incompetence.

Peter Strzok's Smirk Said He Was Lying

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

What the hell was this guy smirking about? Even in the remote possibility (oh, how remote) that his bias had no direct political and investigatory consequence, he had shamed himself, his family, and the FBI and its personnel tremendously, damaging the organization materially for years to come. And yet he was smirking. In fact, he wasn't just smirking.  He was fighting back as if he were the wounded party. One "useful idiot" on the Democratic side even said he deserved the Purple Heart.

Peter Strzok’s arrogance is the product of a corrupt FBI

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Strzok appears to be a chip off the Comey/McCabe block. Like them, he insists he is committed to the FBI’s high standards, but his reprehensible conduct makes a mockery of his claims. His stated contempt for Trump and his promise to stop him from becoming president render Strzok unfit to be a dogcatcher. But, aping his mentors, he nonetheless demands his denials of wrongdoing be accepted as if his integrity is self-evident. All three believe they are entitled to trust and respect, without having to earn or return either.

Facebook’s Big Dork vs. Congress’ Dearth Panels

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

All these politicians are shocked — SHOCKED! — to find personal information bartering going on around here! Every single one of these people in Congress expressing shock and condemnation over Facebook’s sale of persuasion power to political entities already knew exactly what Facebook has been up to for years. Because each and every one of them has used those very tactics to get elected. It wasn’t until Donald Trump stumbled upon the scene and used that system to get himself elected that everybody around here started going bonkers.

Ted Cruz Nails Mark Zuckerberg's Liberal Bias

When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed there was no political bias at Facebook Senator Cruz rattled off a laundry list of examples: A “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day” page that was banned in 2012, around the time that homosexuals were organizing a boycott of the fast-food chain after its chief operating officer made comments against same-sex marriage. Diamond and Silk, the outspoken Trump fangirls who were told by Facebook that their “content and brand” were “unsafe to the community” were just two examples on the list.

Before There Was Facebook And Cambridge Analytica Conservatives Had The Viguerie Company Part 1 of 3

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Liberals have effective control of the mass media -- a virtual monopoly on TV, newspapers, magazines and their associated websites, and increasingly, social media. However, there is one method of mass commercial communication that the liberals do not control -- direct mail.

Mr. Zuckerberg, Who Is The Facebook “Community”?

The announcement that pro-Trump internet sensations Diamond and Silk have been identified as “unsafe to the community” by Facebook’s content monitors prompts us to ask, who is the so-called Facebook community?

Another Pointless Russia Hearing

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The questioning was so straining, empty, and cheap I expected one of the Democrats to ask Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Have you ever, while flipping cable channels at home or at the office, stopped on Russia Television? If so, which programs did you watch and why? Could you give the dates on which you watched RT and the duration of the viewing?
