    Comey may be skating on thin ice – attempting to pull a “DAN RATHER” on Trump with fake notes, memos and such – and this “prediction” by Miller might just be an attempt to make fake memos and notes seem more legitimate:

    Former FBI Director James Comey may have been building a legal case against President Donald Trump well before the president fired him on May 9, according to a former Department of Justice (DOJ) spokesperson.

    Matthew Miller, who served as the DOJ’s Director of the Office of Public Affairs under former Attorney General Eric Holder, suggested that Comey may have been building an obstruction of justice case against the president, in an interview with the Washington Post.

    Miller’s suggestion carries weight not just because of his extensive background at DOJ and in government, but also because he predicted that Comey left a paper trail of his interactions with Trump. Miller sent the following tweet five days before the New York Times reported that Comey wrote a memo indicating the president had asked him to end an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

    Miller agreed with the president that Comey is a “showboat,” which is another reason he believes Comey may be coming after Trump.

    “You just look at his [Comey’s] actions in the [Hillary] Clinton case, where he made himself the central player when there was no reason for him to be the central player,” Miller said. “That aside, his entire history shows that he likes to be at the center of attention.”

    Miller claimed that its still unknown who leaked the Comey memo to The New York Times and admitted that it is unclear what the goal was.

    “But if you were really looking to damage the president,” he added, “you wouldn’t leak the most damaging memo first. So who knows what comes next?”

    IRONIC that Comey did not push for prosecution of the actual criminal but may be pushing for the prosecution of Trump.

    Climate alarmists say that human induced climate change is destroying the biosphere.

    The biosphere proves them wrong:

    GLOBAL GREENING: Scientists Find ‘Lost’ Forests The Size Of Seven Texases

    Scientists looking at forest cover in some of the world’s driest places found something astounding — “lost” forests covering an area nearly seven times the size of Texas.

    “We found new dryland forest on all inhabited continents, but mainly in sub-Saharan Africa, around the Mediterranean, central India, coastal Australia, western South America, northeastern Brazil, northern Colombia and Venezuela, and northern parts of the boreal forests in Canada and Russia,” biologists Andrew Lowe and Ben Sparrow wrote of their study, which had 28 other co-authors.

    “In Africa, our study has doubled the amount of known dryland forest,” Lowe and Sparrow wrote in a recent oped for The Conversation detailing how they “found” millions of acres of “lost” forests not accounted for in previous research.

    Lowe and Sparrow’s study found that 1.3 billion hectares of drylands with more than 10 percent tree cover in 2015, which is a 40 to 47 percent increase from previous estimates. Finding 1.2 billion acres of “missing” forests is equivalent to nearly seven Texases.

    YOU MAY RECALL that one prediction of AGW alarmists was that deserts would get worse in all ways.

    Exactly the opposite is happening.

    Trump Impeachment Talk Started Before He Was Even Nominated

    Months before Donald Trump was even nominated for president at the Republican National Convention, the possibility of impeaching President Trump was already being floated in political circles.

    “‘Impeachment’ is already on the lips of pundits, newspaper editorials, constitutional scholars, and even a few members of Congress,” read an April 2016 Politico piece, titled, “Could Trump Be Impeached Shortly After He Takes Office?”

    “They’ll be talking impeachment on day two, after the first Trump executive order,” conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh predicted a month before the Politico piece. “You might finally get to see unified opposition to the guy.”

  4. Bodhisattva says:

    If something bad happens during the Trump Presidency, it’s on the Democrats and Never Trumpers who are working as hard as they can to prevent him from getting down to business.

    Pat Buchanan says the nonstop uproar following Trump’s firing of former FBI director James Comey is not comparable to Watergate, but he does wonder if the Trump presidency can function with this level of drama.

    Buchanan was a central figure in the Richard Nixon administration and just released “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made And Broke a President and Divided America Forever.” He spoke to The Daily Caller Wednesday about the Trump presidency and other topics.

    You wrote on Monday that the firing of Comey is nothing like Watergate. Do you still think these comparisons are overblown in light of Tuesday’s New York Times report?

    I do. We haven’t got a single crime yet or a single indictment yet. By the time of the Saturday Night Massacre — in the middle of the Watergate scandal which lasted 18 months — you had people convicted and imprisoned, you had others who were on trial or facing indictment, you had others who had lawyered up and whose names had been dropped, you had congressional hearings, you had universal cries in the House for impeachment, and the White House was clearly deep in a crisis.

    To compare the situation then with the situation now is absurd. I will say there is a valid comparison between the blood-in-the-water atmosphere of this city now and the blood-in-the-water atmosphere of 1973/1974 after March 73′.

    There’s another difference, and that’s the media. You had The Washington Post, CBS and the networks. You had a morning newspaper and an evening newspaper and three networks. Now you’ve got a new headline, a new revelation every day at least. Sometimes twice a day. It seems like a great deal more activity going on, but I think in terms of the situation, they’re not comparable. This is not comparable to ’73.

    Ann Coulter recently told me that she hasn’t been too pleased with the opening months of the administration. Do you agree?

    I knew when Trump got in, he’s going to fight for his agenda everyday. A part of the Republican Party disagrees with it and a part of the Republican Party will also seek to sabotage and stop it. It’s going to be a long slog. I accept that.

    Indispensable to the agenda is the president himself. It doesn’t depend as much on the people around him as long as he stays true to his goals and on trade it looks like he really is trying to do that. I’ve got my own ideas on what he ought to do. I think you’re going to need a tariff and then use all the revenues from the tariff to cut taxes on American corporations. I think he’s trying to do something there.

    He’s clearly working on something on the borders. He retains his reluctance to get involved in a major war in the Middle East. A new war which would consume his presidency.

    I don’t know how long they will remain, but on this link there are currently two videos of note, at least:

    SC man was having sex in van when he was fatally shot

    The witnesses indicated that the actual scene was behind a home where a van was still running with its headlights on. The officer reported it appeared that the back bumper of the van was pressed against the home as if it had crashed into it.

    Police found the victim slumped over the driver’s seat and a woman, who had blood on her hands and face, squatting behind the driver’s door.

    The woman said she was the victim’s friend.The woman told the officer that she and the victim were having sex in the vehicle when someone came up to the van and shot the victim.

    Witnesses told investigators they heard a single “pop” and saw a van backed into the home. The homeowner said she had walked up to the van to see why they had crashed into her house and realized, along with other witnesses, that the victim had been shot and was dead.

    The witnesses also said the woman was using narcotics in the back seat after the victim was shot.
    And down below that one,

    Video captures life-threatening close call of boy crossing train track

    A Houston boy escaped injury from a light-rail train after making a split-second decision that almost cost him his life.

    Houston’s Metro Transit Authority released video on Wednesday that shows what happened.

    A boy can be seen crossing tracks in front of an oncoming train.

    Seconds later, he’s followed by another boy, who runs onto the tracks, then darts back at the last moment, hopping onto a fence as the train passes.

    Can you guess the race/ethnicity of the subjects of these two videos?

    Fresh pair of Trump controversies has press demanding impeachment, suggesting people will die…


    Because of what, exactly?

    Because their heads are exploding because there’s still not a single shred of evidence or any reason Trump should be impeached?

    Russia Hearing Exposed Vulnerability of Voter Rolls

    Democrats reject integrity measures that could help prevent future foreign interference

    There is a tinge of irony over Democrats’ worries about the integrity of the U.S. election system given the fact that they often greet concerns over voter integrity with yawns.

    “Whatever it takes to get elected officials to wake up and realize the vulnerabilities, I welcome that discussion,” said Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote. “Whatever the catalyst is to have that conversation, welcome to the party.”

    The Public Interest Legal Foundation has sued dozens of jurisdictions over inaccurate voter registration rolls — including many that have more names on their voter lists than they have voting-age adults. The organization also has raised alarms about ineligible voters on the rolls.

    The Department of Homeland Security last year tried deeming elections systems “critical infrastructure,” a designation whose significance is unclear.

    The declaration made some voter-integrity activists nervous. Those worries jumped in December, when Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp accused the Department of Homeland Security of attempts to electronically penetrate his state’s voter registration system.

    Democrats Wanted Comey Fired — Until Tuesday
    Liberals demanded FBI director’s resignation, dismissal for month

    Until Trump actually fired him… then they were against it!

    Few Democrats suffered such severe political whiplash over the firing of FBI Director James Comey as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

    Over the course of just a few months, Schumer has shifted wildly on the FBI director. The Democratic leader heaped praise on Comey for decisions that benefitted Democrats and tried to damn Comey for decisions that hurt Democrats. On Tuesday, Schumer suggested the decision to fire Comey was indicative of a “cover-up.”
    Schumer held a press conference on Tuesday after President Donald Trump fired Comey, blasting the decision and telling reporters he earlier told Trump that he was making a mistake in firing Comey.

    But a reporter immediately brought up a different opinion Schumer had of Comey last November.

    “Sen. Schumer, you told me last year before the election that you lost confidence in Jim Comey because of how he handled the email scandal,” one reporter said.

    Cyclops goat born with one eye is worshipped by villagers in India
    Some villagers believe the goat, that was born in Assam in India, is sacred and have begun to worship it after it was born a week ago.

    Vets predicted that the goat, which also only has one ear, would die within a few days but it has defied the odds so far.
    People have been visiting the village to see the kid which suffers from a condition seen in other animals including horses, pigs, cows and cats.
    The condition which causes the defect is called cyclopia and occurs when the two hemispheres of the brain do not separate.

    CBS defends new fall shows all starring men
    Les Moonves defends: ‘The best pilots win’

    Last year, CBS was criticized for a new fall lineup that featured six shows all staring white males.

    This fall’s just-revealed lineup shows the broadcaster has gotten more diverse: Five shows starring white males … and one starring former Criminal Minds favorite Shemar Moore.

    A reporter at the CBS press breakfast on Wednesday asked CBS chief Les Moonves if having no new shows with female leads is really a good idea. “We saw this with you guys last year,” the reporter asked. “Are you concerned, particularly in a medium like television where women watch more than men, that you have such a male-centered [lineup]?”

    “Well, number one, more women watch CBS, percentage-wise, than any other network, so our shows have a lot of female appeal,” Moonves countered. “I don’t think we’ve ever had to apologize for having Madam Secretary and Lucy Liu [on Elementary], and The Good Fight [on CBS All Access] and The Good Wife. We do a number of pilots, a lot of them have women in starring roles. There are a lot of women on the schedule. The best pilots win at the end of the day. And we think our track record is okay.”

    The reporter pressed: “We’re at this point in the industry — FX, for example, is trying to make sure half its directors are female. It seems like you guys might be facing in the wrong direction?”

    Moonves replied: “I don’t think that’s the case. Let me put on my CEO hat for a second because I’m not the president of entertainment. When I look at the totality of what CBS is, I look at news, I look at daytime, I look at sports, I look at Showtime, I look at The CW. And when you look at the totality of that, I think we’re fine in terms of the amount of women who are behind the camera and in front of the camera. I think we’re doing a very good job. I don’t think we’re looking in the wrong direction, on the contrary.”

    Is the current bubble about to burst? Note the article claims that $1,650 per month for rent is “no longer too damn high”… though I had to refinance to an uber-low interest rate to do so, I was paying about that per month, a little less actually, for my place – a MORTGAGE payment. Granted I’m not in San Francisco, but San Diego costs are somewhat similar.

    The rent is no longer too damn high.

    Median rents are now $1,650 a month, down 2.9% compared to last year, according to data released Thursday from real estate site Trulia; that’s different from even six months ago when prices were still on the rise. What’s more, there has been an uptick in landlords slashing prices on rental listings — with nearly one in 10 rental listings across the nation getting a price cut.

    “Rents are cooling for the first time in six or seven years,” says Trulia’s Housing Economist Felipe Chacón. He notes that part of this is that rents began rising relentlessly in 2012 after plummeting during the recession (as people could no longer afford homes), and that this is a sign that the rental market is finally cooling a bit. And it may point to “the return of a more stable national rental market rather than one in which price appreciation was a given and landlords had little incentive to cut their initial listing price,” Trulia notes in the report.

    In some cities, the rents are getting cut in particularly high numbers. The percentage of listing that saw price cuts in the San Jose, California area was 19.1% this year (rents here are about $3500 still) — the highest of all 100 cities measured; the San Francisco area (at $4100) was a close second at 18.7%. Rounding out the top five: Denver (16.3%), Seattle (13.9%) and Portland (13.4%). Chacón points out that Bay Area rents have been on a particularly fast upwards trajectory — and many landlords may have been raising rent to keep pace with that and are now cutting rates as consumers get priced out.

    And from the “Now I’ve Heard Everything” department:

    Telling women not to drink during pregnancy ‘sexist’

    Advising women not to drink when pregnant is “sexist” and causes “needless anxiety”, senior academics have said.

    Pregnancy charities and researchers have called for a change to the “alarmist” official Government guidelines, which warn expectant mothers to avoid alcohol completely.

    They say the policy has no basis in evidence and ends up “stigmatising” women and excluding them from society.

    Studies have shown that consistent heavy drinking during pregnancy can result in foetal alcohol syndrome, which can cause physical developmental and learning difficulties.

    However, there is not robust evidence that light to moderate drinking, or even one-off episodes of binge drinking, causes any long-term damage.

    Experts at the University of Kent and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) are claiming that public policy towards pregnant women has “gone down an overtly precautionary route” and that the Government “needs to be honest” about the evidence.

    Has every basis in evidence. Is definitely “overtly precautionary”. In any other case, liberal moonbats generally claim that we MUST err on the side of caution, we MUST do what we can to avoid even the slightest risk. Take Climate Change, for instance: They say that despite NO EVIDENCE we still can’t risk it.

  16. Bodhisattva says:


    According to Flynn’s paperwork, he was paid $530,000 for work that “could be construed to have principally benefited the Republic of Turkey.” The contract ended last November.

    “Could be construed”…

    They turn this into,

    One of the Trump administration’s first decisions about the fight against the Islamic State was made by Michael Flynn weeks before he was fired – and it conformed to the wishes of Turkey, whose interests, unbeknownst to anyone in Washington, he’d been paid more than $500,000 to represent.

    Researchers also look at the health of plants, warning the world could face a $540 billion (492 billion euros) annual bill if the spread of invasive pests and pathogens is not stopped.

    The part that is moonbat nonsense is this idea of stopping “the spread of invasive pests and pathogens”.

    The history of the Earth is the spread of different animals, plants, etc. You can’t stop it.

    Pipeline protests are starting to adversely affect… areas largely infested with lunatic liberal moonbats!

    New U.S. Chamber Report Demonstrates Need for Northeast Pipelines

    The lack of pipeline infrastructure in the northeast has resulted in some of the highest electricity rates in the nation for families and business—and it will only get worse, according to a new report by the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for 21st Century Energy.

    The latest installment in the Energy Institute’s Energy Accountability Series asks the question: “What if pipelines aren’t built into the northeast?” In the states examined, the report finds that the lack of additional pipeline infrastructure would cost over 78,000 jobs and $7.6 billion in GDP by 2020.

    “Environmental groups seeking to ‘keep it in the ground’ are fighting to block virtually every project that would bring additional natural gas into in the northeast,” said Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the Energy Institute. “As a result, residents in the northeast are paying the highest electricity rates in the continental United States, with no relief in sight if infrastructure is not built. High energy prices are costing the region jobs and income, so maintaining the status quo will be painful.”

    According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Connecticut has the third highest electricity rates in the nation, while Massachusetts ranks fourth, Rhode Island is fifth, New Hampshire ranks sixth, New York is eighth, Vermont is ninth, New Jersey is tenth, and Maine comes in at eleventh.

    Meanwhile, continued development of shale oil and gas in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and elsewhere has helped reduce U.S. dependence on foreign energy and brought back thousands of manufacturing jobs. However, the lack of access to markets in the northeast will cost those states jobs and revenue, which is also covered in the report.

    The resources they produce could be used to relieve capacity problems in the northeast, but continued legal challenges and political opposition have stalled or slowed planned infrastructure projects such as the Constitution Pipeline and Access Northeast pipeline.

    With the exception of Alaska, 9 out of 10 of the states with the highest electricity rates are infested with moonbats and 7 out of 10 of them are in the northeast:

    Swedish Town Rejects Proposal to Grant Sex Leave to Workers

    When a politician in a small town in northern Sweden recently suggested that it subsidize one-hour sex breaks for local employees, Swedes — and people around the world — reacted with a mixture of astonishment, glee and derision.

    The politician, Per-Erik Muskos, 42, a member of the center-left Social Democratic Party, said his proposal could help lift the town’s birthrate. Sexologists argued that state-funded sexual interludes could spice up marriages. As news of the idea spread, the scenic town of Overtornea was suddenly portrayed as the latest emblem of Scandinavia’s liberal values and generous welfare state.

    This week, however, the town’s 31-member council overwhelmingly rejected the proposal on the grounds that if sexual intercourse should be subsidized, then so should many other personal activities, such as gardening or cleaning. (The proposal had suggested that an hour of the workweek already devoted to fitness activities could be used by workers to go home and have sex with a spouse or partner instead.)

    “If sexual congress is considered a valid activity, then other activities should be approved, such as cleaning,” the council’s decision, initially published on Monday, concluded.

    The seasons in the northeast are cold and rainy, hot and humid, buggy, and freezing and snowy. Those who claim they are trapped have no imagination. I used to talk with a guy who escaped East Germany, after having survived four years in a POW camp. “Trapped” didn’t keep him and his family trapped, although they lost everything they had other than their lives.

    I was talking about the moonbat types who are unable to conceive of anything involving personal responsibility or initiative.

    I knew I should have been more verbose on that one – you expressed it nicely.

    You and I seem to basically agree. When someone says they are trapped in a particular location, I suspect were the zombie apocalypse to begin, they would un-trap themselves rather quickly.

    The idea of being trapped starts with inertia. Most people resist change and it takes change to grow and escape.

    Laziness plays a role as does a feeling of entitlement – which suppresses self-motivation required to get up and out. Because if you do make the change those who WERE providing you with your comfort and support may not in the future.

    I know from my own experiences change is not always easy, but it is both necessary and certain.

    Change is the only constant.
