"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts or evidence.”
The three greatest recent human rights disasters are: Ukraine, Syria, and Libya. In each nation countless tens of thousands have been killed, wounded, or displaced. America played a key role in all three.
In the case of Syria, 370,000 named victims with estimates of 470,000 total dead. Nearly 1.88 million have been injured and 13.5 million displaced by the war. This of a pre-war population of 22 million. The war has raged seven years beginning in March 2011.
Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey has finally been exposed. For years, his friends in the media have referred to him as a Republican. This has allowed them to legitimize their criticism of Donald Trump by claiming a Republican FBI Director was investigating him. Of course, in 2016, that narrative collapsed when Comey finally admitted in a congressional hearing that he was no longer a Republican.
Since then, Comey has made positive statements about President Barack Obama, exonerated Hillary Clinton despite evidence of criminal behavior and was ultimately fired by President Trump for his poor performance.
The bell has rung. The battle match for the truth has begun.
So we can all agree that James Comey made major mistakes during the 2016 elections. And, I think most of us can agree, that Comey continues to do so as he swings at President Trump recounting it all through his book and TV appearances.
Cutting to the chase, with all of the punching, bobbing, weaving and President Donald Trump's famous counter-punches, is anyone landing any real blows. Or, are we watching too much swinging below the belt?
Thank goodness for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. If not for their continuing mistakes and unpopularity, it would have been a tough week for President Trump and the Republican Party.
After several agonizing days, the House Intelligence Committee memo was finally released to the public. President Trump rightfully declassified the document, allowing the American people a chance to learn about the abuses that occurred within the FBI and the Department of Justice.
The President made the courageous decision despite the strenuous objections of Democrats, the media and the FBI. According to the President, the findings are so upsetting that “a lot of people should be ashamed.”
While the media is celebrating the announcement that former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, a bigger scandal was practically ignored.
On Thursday, Judicial Watch released 29 pages of FBI emails on the infamous meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac of the Phoenix airport.
A new poll released by POLITICO/Morning Consult has turned up some interesting results. The poll was conducted from Nov. 16-19 among a national sample of 2,586 registered voters. Here are some of the findings.
They’re all sorts of people who believe the paddy wagons will be pulling up at any moment to collect Jared and Ivanka while they dine on Beef Wellington and swill Château Lafite Rothschild. Child Services will be on the scene, seconds later, to swoop the kids to Grandpa’s house for safekeeping. These thinkers should enjoy their fantasies, but anyone who entertains the thought that this is how it’ll go down is seriously deluded.
You don't mess around with the Clinton's.
Which just might be what some might be thinking as Donna Brazile discusses her new and quite controversial book about the disruptive 2016 Presidential election in which Donald Trump beat all odds and the Democratic institution led by none other than Hillary and Team Clinton.
It has been a horrible year for Hollywood. Each week, the major studios are suffering from tremendous failures at the box office. It seems Americans are tired of wasting their hard earned money on liberal stars who express hated for President Trump or traditional values.
