By Jonathan E.P. Moore, and Friends of America!
It had to have been fate that prevented me from my 7:26AM Tee time yesterday morning, or maybe the 4 hours of impending rain, either way I got to witness the first American President ever to give a speech against terrorism to 50+ Islamic based countries in Saudi Arabia, and then become the first President to fly directly to Israel after leaving Saudi Arabia. He was more than representative of America’s true feeling toward the issues in dealing with terrorism, and painted a picture of the difference, but similar definitions of the individual perception of the clash between good vs. evil no matter what religious affiliation, or political allegiance.
By the time, President Trump’s 8 day trip to the middle east and Europe is over, and finally putting the 8 years of Obama platform of transformation behind us, America will be back on the world stage, back to being the country that all countries look up to, respect, and at the same time fear, but very happy America is taking its rightful place on the world stage and leading from the front again to fight against the terrorism that, under Obama, ran rampant, not only around the world, but here at home on American soil!
It appears that the ‘left’ is laying low while President Trump steps out of the ‘Swamp’ to do the job the American people elected him to do, but be assured, they’ll be nipping at his toes the minute he takes his first step off air force one back home on American soil!
The lies will continue, and the 6 investigations into the collusion with the Trump campaign and the Russians will continue, and the ever-changing cries for impeachment when not one piece evidence has been found, and will continue also. Now the bitching is about a possible cover up because President Trump showed some empathy toward Flynn and said so to James Comey, who already in public said that while in office for the last close to 4 years he hasn’t seen anyone attempt to cover up or hide anything, and hasn’t been requested or commanded to do so.
Barking up the wrong tree seems to be what the lying ‘left’ have adopted as their political strategy while on the road to extinction, and no matter how big and frequently they tell these lies, the American people know they're not the truth, and don’t believe the ‘new’ Democratic/Socialist Party are anywhere near honest, fighting for the rule of law, following the constitution, or supporting America’s ideological constitutional republic blueprint.
The other big problem I keep hearing is that the left keeps declaring that what they are doing is for the American people, or the American people have a right to know, but the truth of the matter is we already know, through the election and the electoral college landslide, that the American people want protected borders, Jobs, Health care reform, the ‘Swamp’ drained, our military built back up to pre-Obama levels, and crooked Hillary being prosecuted. Now this is what the American people really want done, and their right to have their wishes fulfilled!
Yes, we do want to know everything we need to know about the Russians and any collusion, but once we found out that Seth Rich, the IT guy that worked for the DNC, and fingered by more than one observer, saw and knew that he was the one passing the emails to Wikileaks, and not the Russians. Another compelling point would be that no dated emails were dated after the murder date of Seth Rich! …Hmmm?
Once outsider and nonpolitical candidate Trump is now doing the job of what some might already consider one of the top performances of any President since Reagan, and doing it with no strings attached, and without the guidance of the American people’s 17% ‘Swamp’ approval rated Congress. We need a strong ‘old’ guard Democratic Party that adheres to the bipartisan exchange of ideas, mutual respect,  and understanding the ‘art of the deal,’ but it takes two sides to tango, and if the ‘left’ wants to sit this one out, then the inner party differences, what the ‘Paid to Report’ Media calls the division within the Republican Party, will have to do and serve as the sounding board in the effort to exchange ideas, and following the ‘Will’ of the American people, and their mandated Trump Platform.
I’m beginning to see a kind of mental disarming of the grip that Obama’s ideology once had on the progressive left, and millennial wrongs. By wrong I mean the actions that Obama’s domestic and foreign policies have had on millennials for the last 8 years that's restricted and hurt the already limited possibilities of the reality of achieving the American Dream under the Obama reign of Socialist reform.
I don’t know if the ‘left’ and it’s constituency are paying attention to President Trump’s 8 day trip overseas, and I don’t know if they even care, but with the Silent majority being driven underground again, like during the last election, and still obstructing and resisting.  I have to believe that the Silent Majority ranks have got to be growing and ready to strike again in 2018 during the drive to get President Trump the 60 seats in the Senate, which is needed to bring this sad chapter of cooperative resistance and obstruction by the progressive left to an end.
It’s time to push forward as one nation indivisible and bring America back to being what it has always been, and always will be. We were given the Obama version of bait and switch, and by that I mean that Obama’s campaign of change was about ideological change, and not the change that American loyalists were expecting. All Americans were confused and while scratching their heads, watched what America’s bipartisan leadership thought about the rule of law, our constitution, and the ‘Will’ of the American people, and if I had to give you an answer, I would say, ‘not much!’
While President Trump is overseas reassuring our allies and making America’s foreign policy great again, Michael Flynn will decline the subpoena, take the 5th, and not testify. I say give Flynn the immunity he asked for, and let’s see what he knows about Obama and Hillary’s involvement with the Russians. After all, everything that Flynn is accused of happened before Trump, and under the watchful eyes of ex-President Obama, and Obama is the one that didn’t rescind his security clearance after firing him, and let him go to Turkey to get paid for a speech. Hmmm, what is Flynn hiding, and who is he hiding it for, and from?
President Donald Trump is doing his job, which is more than can be said for the resisting and obstructing Progressive left, and their masked anarchist agents who are being paid by outside interests to undermine our rule of law and constitution.
Looking at it objectively, as a guy who opposed Trump until he dispatched Ted Cruz, I have to consider all the facts and ponder the evidence carefully before awarding Donald Trump the grade of A+. He has done an incredible job of doing exactly what I had hoped he would do in the off chance he defeated that naggy harridan and her corps of gender indeterminate hipsters, coastal snobs, race hustlers, aspiring libfascists, media scum, and wussy pseudo-conservatives terrified that a Hillary loss would mean people might expect them to do more than wear bow ties and go on NPR to prattle about Burke in their high-pitched, nasal voices.
There can be no serious debate. Donald Trump has done a truly outstanding job of not being Hillary Clinton.
His not being Hillary Clinton was and remains my sole expectation of Donald Trump’s presidency. Nothing else matters in the end; it is enough that Trump foiled Felonia von Pantsuit’s creepy scheme to subjugate forever the deplorable mass of normal people she despises. The Obamacare repeal, tax reform, plus appointees of the quality of Gorsuch, Mattis and McMaster, and his lower court appointments – the inexplicable and damn-well-better-be-corrected-if-Trump-doesn’t-want-a conservative-rebellion omission of Justice Don Willett not withstanding – are merely icing on the red velvet cake of Trump’s not-being-Hillaryhood.
In fact, the only thing keeping me from giving him an A++ is that Trump has unforgivably failed to point toward his zipper and invite the liberal establishment and their panty-twisted Fredocon houseboyz to “Obstruct this!”
Now, that is not to say there have not been challenges, but we must be careful not to confuse the lies of the media and their Democrat masters, repeated by the Never Trumper geek chorus, with problems Trump himself caused.
Here’s the brutal reality: No matter what Trump does, he will always be evil, awful, criminal, and/or treasonous. It doesn’t matter if he does something good. It’s doesn’t matter if Obama famously did the same thing – or worse. It doesn’t matter if it’s an outright and obvious lie. It will never stop. The soft coup plotters’ plan is to generate a constant barrage of bullSchumer designed to eventually browbeat the weak-hearted among the GOP into going along with their impeachment scheme as the first step on the road to the left retaking power and consolidating it so that we normals can never again have our voices heard.
If you want to blame Trump for the phony “controversy” surrounding him, ask yourself – what actions could he take that would stop the liberal feeding frenzy? Be nicer and gentler and act like “the bigger man? Worked great for W.
You fall into their trap when you buy into the characterization of Trump himself being responsible for what is an organized conspiracy to delegitimize him. They want you to think that. They want you to think that where there’s smoke there’s fire. They want you to think “Gosh, Trump has to be doing something wrong if so many of the conventionally pretty TV people and my dying morning newspaper keep saying he is.”
But it isn’t true. It’s nonsense. It’s a fraud. It’s a steaming pile of Harry Reid.
Ask yourself: If Trump did not collude with the Russians, what would happen? He’d deny it – Trump has. He’d hit back – Trump has. And no evidence of actual wrong doing would leak out after nearly a year of investigations – and none has, as even that wizened crone Diane Feinstein and that gold standard of stupidity Maxine Waters have been forced to admit.
Now ask yourself: If Trump did collude with the Russians, what would happen? Well, we’d see a zillion leak about the damning evidence from the intelligence community, and currently unemployed nut job James Comey would have been pressing for indictments. Those things haven’t happened.
Gee, the facts are perfectly in synch with these allegations not being true, and utterly at odds with the allegations being true. Since liberals believe in science and evidence and stuff, I guess there’s only one rational, reasonable conclusion we can draw:
Just watch how Robert Mueller becomes part of the conspiracy when he comes back with nothing on the President. The left will 180 its attitude toward him even faster than it did toward Comey when that towering dork got canned.
There are things Trump can do better, like getting some appointments made of loyalists who share his vision. His loyalists been shut out, and the Never Trumpers have been invited in. Apparently, their high principles lasted until Election Day when they finally accepted the fact that Jeb! was never going to be president of anything except his extensive stuffed bunny collection.
Allowing his friends and conservatives to get shafted is a grave error. It will haunt Trump. His embrace of enemies by giving them a chance to betray him will dishearten and drive away the loyal. For example, why are Trump and every single White House rival of Reince Priebus getting trashed by leaks to Maggie Haberman & Co. at the New York Times, but never Reince? I guess none of those disloyal anonymous leakers ever says anything bad about Reince because he’s so gosh-darned squared away.
Yeah, that’s it. Or every night Reince lies in his bed on his tummy wearing a floral bathrobe with a One Direction poster on the wall, kicking his feet in the air, holding his pink rotary dial phone, exclaiming, “Hey Maggs, do I ever have some dish for you!”
Trump needs to start rewarding loyalty while punishing disloyalty, do some housecleaning, and get himself a competent Chief of Staff who is focused on running the staff instead of running his mouth to the enemy. Otherwise, the President needs to simply drive on. Every day Trump stays in office is another day Hillary is not in office. And that’s a win. ~~By Kurt Schlichter, a Friend of America!

By Jonathan E.P. Moore, and Friends of America!
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the ‘man’ that told the truth about loyal Obamaite, ex-FBI Director James Comey, has apparently backed up his words and recommendations by appointing an apolitical new set of eyes to review the real facts of the ‘Fake’ Media’s ‘Never Trump’ agenda.
Now we have a total of 4 investigations going on into the 'possible' collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election that gave Donald Trump the American people’s mandated job of making America great again, but now after the ‘left’s’ crying and demanding the appointment of an outside apolitical investigator, and getting it, are bitching again. Nancy Pelosi just came out and said that’s not good enough and thinks an independent council is what’s required. The irrelevant left’s Adam Schiff is also bitching because his party’s ruse and hypocritical plot has had its legs pulled out from under their Socialist narrative, and will expose what the left’s part is in the leaking, the false narratives, their connection to the Russians, the murder of Wikileaks true agent Seth Rich, and the left-over moles that Obama planted in the 17 intel agencies in his last days in office!
I get tired of the continued calling out of President Trump’s supposed lying when he says anything related to the Truth, and then mad when the agenda journalists turn his words around to make his statements appear to be lies! The Clintons, Eric Holder, and Loretta Lynch have used intent and interpretation to nullify the constitution and the rule of law, and as a result has become the status quo and accepted practice by the progressive justices that Obama appointed to the lower  courts by way of the 'nuclear option.  When Bill Clinton was impeached he used the ‘what is, is, and have mastered the art of how to use grammatically altered knit picking, and by doing so, undermining the fact that all of these committees investigating the Collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign, based on this art, hasn't come up with  1 piece of evidence proving that their allegations about the supposed collusion are true!
The left is playing that old game of ‘bait and switch,’ and because they don’t have a positive message has decided to keep Trump's huge successes and fulfilling his promises off the front page, and substitute them with ‘Fake’ news using innuendos, half-truths, fake intent, fake sources, and outright lying to try and delegitimize Trump's Presidency because the feckless leadership of the left can’t take responsibilities for the failure of their message, or the lying, traitorous, anti-American. but pro pant-suit, Hillary ‘the anti-deplorable’ Clinton!
What America needs is that positive ‘outsider-nonpolitician’ energy that President Trump brought to the campaign when a candidate, but stifled and short circuited by the ‘No message’ Socialist left, and the ‘Paid to Report’ Media ever since he got to office. We need to drain the ‘swamp’ and cut through the ‘Red’ tape that prevents President Trump’s cabinet appointments to be confirmed. We also need to do away with most of the outdated political traditions and protocols that cause the wheels of the political processes to slow, and in some cases grind to a halt.
We need these individual states, and the individual party’s constituency, to self-mandate and implement term limits on their own elected officials, and I think we all know why, and that’s because the Congressional ‘Swamp’ in Washington will never self impose term limits on themselves, and that my friends, you can take to the bank! 
What we Americans also need to know is that in some cases ‘good news’ can change the landscape and attitude of the ‘State of the Union,’ and when you follow the Trump mandate of making American great again, anything can happen to bring back what 'good news' and President Trump’s platform, which was approved by the people of America when Trump won the 2016 election by one of the largest electoral college landslides in modern times, of making America 'happy' again! Unbeknownst to the public President Trump has been knocking it out of the park when it comes to his promises he made to the American people, and getting the job done. The problem with this though is that President Trump’s successes have been hidden behind the veil of ‘fake News,’ and the attempt by the Socialist left to undermine Trumps rhetoric about making America great again. On the other hand, the left only has the Socialist message of dependency, surrendering, and allowing government to run your life, and painting what's going on under President Trump a dark reality!
What America needs to happen now is Ryan and McConnell have to take the bull by the horns and ‘not’ slam shut the ‘Nuclear Option’ door that Harry Reid opened back when jamming Obamacare down the throats of all Americans, and then again stacking the courts with progressive under court justices that choose to override anything Trump, and bypass the rule of law and Constitution!
Hillary always said that ‘words matter,’ and her words and lies is what sunk her ship and her Socialist agenda. Words have also sabotaged Trump’s short political career, and still does today because of his somewhat disturbing decision to use ‘Twitter’ to get his daily message out. What Mitch McConnell has to understand is that without the ‘Nuclear Option’ the Trump platform will be doomed, and that’s because there won’t be a chance in Hell that anybody on the progressive left will ever vote for anything that will bring America back to its exceptional constitutional, and rule of law self, or the status it has earned on the world stage from the many countries that have envied and respected America and its Constitutional Republic way of life for generations.
I feel Ryan has turned the corner and now on board with the Trump agenda after a rough start, but I have my doubts about Mitch McConnell and his ability to see clear that the only way to keep President Trump and the Republican party promises is to wheel that ‘Nuclear Option’ Sword, and if McConnell can’t accept the ‘Will’ of the American people, and do whatever it takes to maintain our constitutional republic, and defend the rule of law, he needs to think about retiring. If McConnell can't do away with a lot of these time cherished useless protocols and procedures, and not understand that the 'left' would take advantage of using the 'nuclear option' to eliminate the competition in a heartbeat. Ryan looks he's willing to step up to the plate, and if McConnell can't do the same he needs to step down and give that responsibility to a strong individual who can see the light at the end of the tunnel for the future of America, and do whatever it takes to get the job done! 
America dodged a huge crippling  ideological bullet when Hillary lost, and by doing so, avoided a nightmarish Socialist future for America, and if Mitch McConnell doesn’t use the ‘Nuclear Option’ to drive Socialism into extinction, then everything that awake informed Americans and the Silent majority voted for backing Trump’s ‘make America Great again platform, will all be lost! ……. food for thought if nothing else!~~
A day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell invoked the "nuclear option" to end a Democratic filibuster and confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, he sought Friday to reassure both Democrats and Republicans that he opposes any effort to strip the minority party of its power to block legislation from being approved.
"There is a big difference between eliminating the filibuster for judicial nominations and doing away with it for legislation," the Kentucky Republican said.
"The core of the Senate is the legislative filibuster," McConnell said. "This notion that this (changing the filibuster rule to confirm Gorsuch) somehow bleeds over into the legislative filibuster is untrue. I'm opposed to it ... I think that's what fundamentally changes the Senate."
Political scientists and some senators have expressed fear that McConnell’s decision to "go nuclear" on the Gorsuch confirmation could lead to efforts to do away with the legislative filibuster as well. Republican senators voted Thursday to change Senate rules so that only a simple majority of 51 senators — rather than 60 — was required to advance the judge's nomination to the Senate floor for an up-or-down vote on Friday. Gorsuch was confirmed by a vote of 54-45.
**This is my point, and does anyone think that in today's political environment that the 'left' will work on 'making America great again, especially when they gave their constituency the option of picking one of the two Socialist options to vote for?**
The legislative filibuster gives the minority party a great deal of power by requiring 60 votes to move most major bills forward. The current Republican majority in the Senate holds 52 seats while Democrats hold 48. That means both parties must work together to reach consensus before they can pass legislation on everything from how to spend taxpayer money to how to overhaul the nation's immigration system. ~~By Erin Kelly, a Friend of America!
With all this smoke and mirrors that have been created by the left to draw the attention away from what this outsider nonpolitician Billionaire has done for the American people, and what the ‘Paid to Report’ Media isn’t telling us. There was a time when you were able to trust the Media to be responsible for keeping the progress and advances front and center, and the negative ‘fake news’ on the back pages and under the fold.  President Trump promised and already delivered on a lot of his promises, and the following is just one of them, and within the time he was sworn in, until today.~~
On the campaign trail, then-candidate Donald Trump stirred up serious controversy when he said of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.”
“They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us,” he continued.
Now as President, Trump and his agents at ICE are cracking down on the bad people and cleaning up the streets – big league!
Via the Daily Caller:
Immigration and Customs Enforcement-led operation led to the arrest of 1,378 gang members and associates, agency leaders announced Thursday.
The six-week operation was part of “Community Shield,” an anti-gang program launched in 2005, and was led by ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit in conjunction with state and local agencies.
In addition to the arrests, officials seized $491,763 in currency and 238 firearms.
Derek Benner, deputy associate director of ICE HSI, described it as the “largest gang surge to date.”
Some of the criminal activity involved drug trafficking, weapons smuggling, human smuggling, sex trafficking, murder, and racketeering.
Benner announced that 280 people – over 20% – were arrested on immigration violations and will face deportation proceedings, while at least three recipients of Barack Obama’s “DREAMers” were arrested in the gang sweep.
Eight of those apprehended were confirmed to belong to the MS-13 gang, an extremely violent group that has been a focus of the President’s in building the border wall.
MS-13 has been linked to nearly a dozen murders on Long Island, among other crime nationwide.
“Gangs threaten the safety of our communities, not just in major metropolitan areas but in our suburbs and rural areas, too,” announced Acting Director of ICE Thomas Homan.
“Gang-related violence and criminal activity present an ongoing challenge for law enforcement everywhere,” he added. “Our efforts to dismantle gangs are much more effective in areas where partnership with local law enforcement is strongest.”
Law enforcement can only be strongest with a strong, pro-law and order president backing them up. ~~ By Rusty, a Friend of America!
Common sense should tell you that a 70-year-old Billionaire doesn’t have lie, and because of this doesn’t have to be afraid of any of the timing of his actions, especially when any other action would be the actions of a guilty man trying to hide something, and not from one who hasn’t done anything wrong. President Trump is an outsider nonpolitician, according to the ‘Paid to Report’ Media, doesn’t know what he’s doing, can’t walk the walk, can’t talk the talk, and doesn’t belong in the bipartisan corrupt, with something to hide, ‘Garden Party’ swamp of elitists and snobs, who believe President Trump should be sent down on the farm with the rest of Hillary's 'basket of deplorables,' and spend the rest of their lives letting the government decide what's best for them, and the rest of America!
President Trump speaks the language of the common American, and with some of his cabinet appointments, have decided to use their retirement years to give back to the country that gave them the freedoms and liberties that allowed them to achieve their individual ‘American Dream.’ They divested their assets, gave control of their holdings away, and by doing so, more than likely lost money. I don’t know about the other retirees, but Trump gave up his salary, and now gives it up to a charity of other people’s choosing.~~
Let's stipulate from the start that the New York Times story on President Trump's alleged interaction with then-FBI Director James Comey earlier this year raises serious concerns about undue political interference in a criminal investigation. As I wrote last night, Congress should demand to see the memo in question (Fox News confirmed its existence), and Comey must be called to testify about it under oath. Both outcomes have already been set in motion. And while they're at it, Congress should review any and all Comey memos describing his interactions with Trump. Questions: Did the former FBI chief keep similar records of his meetings with high-ranking members of the last administration? Might those be of interest, too?  Obvious initial questions for Comey would include authenticating the reported memo, asking how he perceived Trump's overtures on the Flynn probe at the time -- and, if he felt there was a genuine attempt to obstruct the Bureau's work, why didn't he blow the whistle immediately and resign? We don't have any of those answers yet, which is why impeachment talk is premature, to say the least.
 Former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy, whose work and insights are often invaluable, takes inventory of the situation at hand and offers some worthwhile observations in a new column. Like me, he believes that "it is not frivolous to infer that Trump’s statement to Comey was a veiled order" (after all, Trump was an extremely powerful boss making his wishes quite clear to a subordinate), and that discussions about potential obstruction of justice are "legitimate:"
In light of what I’ve previously contended (viz., that obstruction of justice is a concept irrelevant to a counterintelligence investigation), I must note here that concerns about obstruction of justice in the context of the reported Trump-Comey conversation are legitimate. That is because the conversation does not directly relate to the so-called Russia investigation, which Comey has explained is a counterintelligence inquiry regarding Kremlin interference in the 2016 election. Rather, Trump and Comey were speaking about a criminal investigation of Flynn, ancillary to but separate from the Russia investigation. We are informed that a grand jury in Virginia is considering evidence of transactions involving Flynn, although it is not clear that this was the case on February 14, when Trump and Comey spoke.
I've seen a number of people suggesting the FBI had already "cleared" Flynn, so all of this is a moot issue. That's not quite right. Investigators did review his communications with Russian officials during the transition (lying about which eventually led to Flynn's resignation), but "found nothing illicit," according to the Washington Post. But as McCarthy notes, Flynn is also the subject of an active criminal investigation regarding possible financial ties to foreign governments and related disclosure issues. "Ancillary to, but separate," per McCarthy's apt description.  He goes on to make two major points.  First, the context of the alleged private conversation between Trump and Comey matters a lot, and the fact that Comey didn't immediately resign in protest may be an indication that Trump's cajoling, while highly suspect, didn't rise to the level of criminality:
There is good reason to believe veiled orders, while inappropriate, are not criminal — i.e., they do not rise to the level of prosecutable obstruction of justice. Obstruction can be a tough crime to prove. It is necessary to establish, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the suspect acted corruptly in impeding or influencing a criminal investigation. That means acting with knowledge that one’s conduct was unlawful, and with a specific intent to undermine the truth-seeking function. Context is critical, and we don’t have it. All we know is that Trump hoped the criminal investigation would be dropped — but again, did not order it to be dropped — and vouched for Flynn’s character. That may have been inappropriate under the circumstances, but it was not corrupt. Comey surely found it awkward, but he clearly did not perceive it as obstruction. The former director is a highly experienced and meritoriously decorated former prosecutor and investigator. He knows what obstruction of justice is. And the Jim Comey I’ve known for 30 years would not stand for political interference in law enforcement. If he had understood Trump’s remarks as a directive or, worse, a threat, he would have resigned. It is not enough to say that he did not resign. Unlike the investigation of Mrs. Clinton, the investigation of Flynn has continued. Plus, Comey does not appear to have indicated to his subordinates, to his Justice Department superiors, or to Congress that he felt threatened.
I'm not sure I'd agree that it's "clear" that Comey didn't perceive obstruction. As others have speculated, there's a distinct possibility that Comey was trying to assess Trump's intentions over time, possibly with an eye toward proving obstruction. Josh Barro surmises that the president's decision to fire Comey, potentially out of retaliation, might be the 'smoking gun' action that makes a criminal case easier to make. Regardless, it is safe to say that the private discussion was not unto itself sufficient proof of obstruction in Comey's mind.  Helpfully, we'll learn more about his thought process when he testifies. The second point is that if Trump's statements were tantamount to "veiled orders," did President Obama do something similar by telegraphing his 'analysis' (easily understood to be his preference) of the Clinton email matter while that probe was still ongoing? Let's recall together:
“I don’t think it posed a national security problem,” Mr. Obama said Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes.” He said it had been a mistake for Mrs. Clinton to use a private email account when she was secretary of state, but his conclusion was unmistakable: “This is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.” Those statements angered F.B.I. agents who have been working for months to determine whether Mrs. Clinton’s email setup did in fact put any of the nation’s secrets at risk, according to current and former law enforcement officials.
While agents were still reviewing evidence, Obama announced on national television that it was his conclusion that Clinton's conduct didn't endanger US national security (a very dubious verdict, in light of revelation after revelation after revelation after revelation). The big boss in convinced this is nothing --cough, cough -- he made clear. Adjust accordingly, he didn't explicitly add. The New York Times reported that Obama's comments upset some within the FBI, and many conservatives (including yours truly) were harshly critical of the president's apparent meddlesome pressure. We also expressed anger over reports that some DOJ officials were exerting pressure to "stand down" on Clinton-related proves, and that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch (who'd supposedly quasi-recused herself from the decision-making process on these matters) urged Comey not to disclose his re-opened investigation to Congress in October.  Obama and company wanted Hillary Clinton to be the next president.  The former president literally broadcast his assertion that her gross negligence wasn't that serious, and subordinates allegedly worked behind the scenes to limit the scope of the FBI investigation's political damage to Clinton.  Does that all add up to obstruction?  If not, why not?
I see two differences: (1) Obama was asked about Clinton's situation in a public setting and gave an answer.  Trump, by contrast, allegedly made a private, one-on-one appeal directly to the man in charge of the Flynn probe, after asking that the room be cleared. (2) Trump didn't get his way, and fired Comey.  We don't know if those two facts were related, but they both exist.  Obama did get his way, so there's no way of knowing how he'd have reacted if Comey had followed the statute and evidence by recommending criminal charges against Mrs. Clinton. 
I'm not sure whether these distinctions matter in a legal sense, but they're worth mentioning either way.  McCarthy's point on Obama's conduct vs. Trump's alleged conduct isn't an 'apples-to-apples' comparison; but it may not be so different as to be 'apples-to-oranges' either.  The purpose of highlighting this contrast is not mindless 'whataboutism,' which I cautioned against just yesterday.  It's to highlight the tricky standards when it comes to actionable proof of obstruction of justice based on controversial or questionable presidential conduct. ~~By Guy Benson, a friend of America!

By Jonathan E.P. Moore, and Friends of America!
Once you understand that the Main Stream Media is not on America’s side, or defending the Constitution, then everything they do makes perfect sense, and the reason why the 2018 midterms need to give President Trump those 60 seats needed in the Senate to give Americans a great and respected America again.
America’s Americans are the target of the ongoing attacks on today’s modern day version of 'Ronald Reagan’ by the ‘Paid to Report’ Media. President Trump is a normal patriotic citizen who just happens to be a Billionaire that wants to make America great again, but these agenda journalists, who are actually being paid to produce ‘Fake News,’ which by the way is now being labeled  ‘dishonest’ news, are still doubling down and promoting their ‘Never Trump’ agenda. They're nuts and the wackiness is spreading to America's globalist elected bipartisan officials who still think a special prosecutor should be assigned, but still don't understand what is he prosecuting for, and what is the evidence? There is nothing but innuendos and accusations but not a single  item of proof. It's not like Nixon where there was a large amount of evidence to build a case, and it's not like the overwhelming evidence that Comey so carefully outlined against Hillary when it came to her unsecured server, and which should have been enough to lock her up for the rest of her life, that is until Comey Pulled a rabbit out of his hat, and gave Hillary the walking papers that she so justly deserved. If  that's comparing apples to oranges than so be it, arrest Hillary, and reopen the slam dunk case that was outlined by Comey a couple of days after sleaze bag Bill and Loretta Lynch met on the Tarmac to discuss grandkids and the weather!   
Hillary used the phrase ‘words matter’ when digging into President Trump’s past comments, and if you considered candidate Trump’s words revealing, I would say you missed the boat when then candidate Trump was unwillingly being recorded during a one on one discussion about women. I had many instances where I not only heard such ‘atrocities,’ but still added my two cents. I played high school and college sports, and in many organizations from the Cub Scouts to the Boy Scouts, to a fraternity, member of golf clubs, sales teams, professional associations, and in general, a member of society, and when half the world is male and the other half female, I would think, even though loose lips sink ships, that it’s on the mind of every human being whether male or female, and either internally verbalized or boasted about during one on one conversations about sexual conquests! I know this doesn't make it right, but part of the lefts 'Basket of Deplorables' she talks about so frequently.
There is one thing all Americans know for sure, and that’s words don’t matter to Hillary Clinton who has been found to lie occasionally, and under oath, and seems to have that same ability to spread this cancer to the agenda journalists who work for their ‘Paid to Report’ Media bosses. I call what these agenda journalist use for their protected sources, in reality, is interpretation and intent, and not honest heart felt words and actions that might come out of one not as versed in the English language, like these elitist snobs who consider most Americans who are uneducated, part of Hillary’s ‘Basket of Deplorables’ that Hillary’s words was able to define, and openly, under the protection of her ‘Hollywood’ know-it-alls!
When foreign leaders who don’t speak English come to America to have a sit down with President Trump they bring an interpreter, but do we actually understand that what the interpreter is interpreting is actually what he says it is? A majority of us don’t understand the individual Foreign languages, but a huge majority of Americans do understand English, and when the ‘Paid to Report’ Media is doing the interpretation of the facts relating to President Trump, and we know this because of these agenda journalist’s history giving a free pass to the Obama administration and the campaign of Hillary Clinton, they more than not, don’t get it right, or at least don't get it right for the future of the American people, and the generations to come.
President Trump’s perception is his reality, and the 'swamps' perception of reality is that no one, unless a member of the ‘Garden Party,’ is capable enough to understand the protocols and traditions of the same ‘swamp’ that believes their shit doesn't stink, and because of that, aren’t qualified to take that highest seat of authority in America, or have an alternative view of what needs to be done to make America and the world as a whole, a great and safer place again. 
As I mentioned before I picked candidate Trump from the beginning, and that’s because he was the only candidate that could deliver on the message that the silent majority wanted to hear, and do it without any strings attached. At the time, Obama was running the show, and the American people were giving the congress a 12.8% approval rating because of the feckless leadership of then President Obama, and the lack of resolve enforcing America’s non-existent domestic and foreign policies.  To this day the left doubts the American peoples resolve and the election results are trustworthy, but what they don’t acknowledge, or chose not to remember, is witnessing the pleas on TV of a seated President begging illegal immigrants and refugees to vote, and then promising no consequences if they did.
President Trump gave the silent majority a voice and the courage to come out of the closet to help take America back, and at the same time the left was using political correctness and implicit bias to take that voice away, and drive them into the shadows of inaction and irrelevance. What’s important to know here is that President Trump’s words don’t give any credence to any attempt to stop the investigation into the last election's collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign, and the left already knows that, but if President Trump shows a little compassion and concern over the wellbeing of a fellow associate because he’s a nice man, and being interpreted as obstructing justice, and grounds for impeachment, then what's next? Now Does any of this reported statement below sound like he ordered the investigation to be halted, and how does what temporary Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe said under oath about the Flynn investigation not prove that President Trump didn't do what the 'Paid to Report' Media is falsely reporting?
“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo, parts of which were read to the Times. “He is a good guy."
You can’t make this stuff up, especially after what Alinskyites Obama and Hillary did to America, and its Constitutional Republic's 240+ years of success!
The answer about the action that President Trump is being accused of is simple, and when you look at the testimony of the temporary Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, who  by the way has strong ties to Clinton ally Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe. then you would see that the empty accusations about President Trump refusing additional financing, and the investigation being stymied by the President being the 'supposed' reality that's being promoted by the feeding frenzy Media's allegations of impeachable wrong doing, you have your answer, and the truth. What people don't understand is that the Director of the FBI oversees the investigations, and like Trump in the real world delegates responsibility, and only makes directional decisions and directions to follow, so when McCabe says that they have the funds, and the manpower to do the job, and they haven't missed a beat, then common sense should tell you that empathy and not obstruction was his message, and nothing more. Trump knows that all of this is BS, and therefore doing what he does best, and that's his job, and the time line in which he has to complete and fulfil the promises he made to the American people.
Flynn was the first person to come out in support of then candidate Trump, and as a result created a bond that had to be broken because of the feckless investigative abilities of Obama’s 17 intelligence agencies to find out the truth about where the emails that Wikileaks was leaking about the DNC and Hillary’s emails were coming from. Isn’t it funny that, how this news comes out today, but known about before today that the leaking to Wikileaks was done by DNC staffer Seth Rich, who was murdered by being shot in the back on his way home at the wee hours of the morning still doesn’t make its way to the front page of these tabloids, or leading off the nightly news broadcasts of the ‘Paid to Report’ Media? I think that after witnessing the Main Street Media’s abilities adjust the facts of any case against President Trump to fit their narrative, and agenda journalists’ accounts of certain events, I would trust the recollections of a man that has nothing to gain by wanting to make America great again, and following the rule and letter of the law.  A botched robbery was the police’s theory, but his wallet, cellphone, and all personal property were still intact, and in the proper places on the body, but to date there are no leads, and the case remains unsolved. The police, to date are still stonewalling and advising against anyone looking for information, or looking to investigate the case, to stay away.
President Trump was elected because he knew what was going on behind those closed doors, and in those dark back rooms on Capitol Hill, and even though a Billionaire, decided to put his money where his mouth is and jump down off that fence on the side of the ‘Will’ of the American people. President Trump is flawed, and we knew that before the election, President Trump followed the law and supplied the committee with his financials, but not his tax returns because he legally wasn’t bound to, and we who voted for him knew it before the election, President Trump ran his campaign on promises  that included, building a ‘Wall,’ repealing and replacing Obamacare, cutting taxes, creating jobs, and making America great again, and we all knew this before we voted for him, but the problem here is that those promises run along our founding father’s vision and constitution, but not the Socialist vision that Alinskyites Obama and Hillary Clinton had in mind, but still practicing, and being practiced by the globalist followers on both sides of the aisle, and their past and present leaders that have chosen to make a buck, rather than do the job their constituency sent them to Washington to do!
As the Progressive left keeps shooting themselves in the foot, there is no there, there when it comes to the collusion with Russia during the last election, and that Trumps supposed attempt to thwart the investigation into the Flynn investigation is more than flawed and basically unproven through common sense interpretation of Trump’s words and empathy to a colleague that was fired because he was railroaded by the ‘Paid to Report’ Media, and the Obama leftover leakers that hide in one of Obama’s 17 intel agencies on the campus of the biggest bureaucracy in the history of the world, or at least here at home in America.
While NBC and CNN joined the rest of the media in rushing to condemn the Trump White House over an unconfirmed Washington Post report that the President inadvertently shared classified information with Russian officials, guests on both networks provided important context that the Obama administration intentionally shared classified intelligence with Russia less than a year ago.
Appearing on Friday’s NBC Today, security analyst Juan Zarate warned: “The problem is the Russians aren’t trustworthy. The Russians have proven that when we’ve provided information in the past, they’ve used it against us.” He then proceeded to explain how former President Obama gave the Russians classified information just months ago:
‘Back in the summer of 2016, the Obama administration provided some information to the Russians about some of the things happening on the ground. Guess what happened? The Russians then attacked some of those sites of our allies, our proxies that we were working with. And that’s a problem.’
Meanwhile, over on CNN’s New Day, political analyst Jeffrey Lord provided some “perspective” to anchor Chris Cuomo:
The only thing I would say here, Chris is perspective. Perspective is all. I'm holding two headlines from the Washington Post, one of May 25th, 2014, “White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan.” The Obama administration put the name of the CIA on the press release, exposed him and endangered his life. The second one, June 30, 2016, “U.S. Offers to share Syrian intelligence on terrorist with Russia,” which is to say the Obama administration wanted to give their intelligence to the Russians. All I'm saying here is there’s perspective. We need to find out the facts and let’s have perspective.
Incidentally, notice that the 2014 story was from the same Post reporter, Greg Miller, who wrote Monday's article.
In sharp contrast to the wall-to-wall media coverage of the Trump story, Obama offering to share intel with Russia was greeted with yawns from the press.
Here are excerpts of the May 16 exchanges on NBC and CNN:
Today 7:10 AM ET
MATT LAUER: Can you just clarify something? This concerns an ISIS plot. The Russians are supposed to be our partners in fighting ISIS. So, explain why sharing of information with them is so dangerous.
JUAN ZARATE: Well, two reasons. First of all, I think the President may think that he’s trying to create some degree of trust, maybe trying to create some cooperation on the ground. That may be in the back of his mind. The problem is the Russians aren’t trustworthy. The Russians have proven that when we’ve provided information in the past, they’ve used it against us.
Back in the summer of 2016, the Obama administration provided some information to the Russians about some of the things happening on the ground. Guess what happened? The Russians then attacked some of those sites of our allies, our proxies that we were working with. And that’s a problem.....CRICKETS IS  WHAT YOU HEARD FROM THE PRESS!!!!
And I think part of the challenge here is, how much can we trust the Russians? What you’re seeing here is a deficit of trust, a deficit of discipline, I think, on the part of the President.
New Day 6:34 AM ET
CHRIS CUOMO: All right. This latest self-imposed and perhaps most egregious error by the president is sparking all kinds of questions about competence, was his inability to protect highly classified information with Russian diplomats a sign that he's not up to the job. There's a New York Times op-ed you should read for yourself from David Brooks. The headline is this, when the world is led by a child. It says, quote, “From all we know so far, Trump didn't do it,” talking about the classified information, “because he's a Russian agent or from any malevolent intent. He did it because he is sloppy, because he lacks all impulse control, and above all because he is a 7-year-old boy desperate for the approval of those he admires.” Let’s discuss Jeffrey Lord, former commentator and White House official and David from senior editor at the Atlantic. Jeffrey, I'm sure you have a robust defense for why this is a nor his criticism of the president is unwarranted so give it to us.
JEFFERY LORD: Okay. The only thing I would say here, Chris is perspective. Perspective is all. I'm holding two headlines from the Washington Post, one of May 25th, 2014, “White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan.” The Obama administration put the name of the CIA on the press release, exposed him and endangered his life. The second one, June 30, 2016, "U.S. Offers to share Syrian intelligence on terrorist with Russia," which is to say the Obama administration wanted to give their intelligence to the Russians. All I'm saying here is there's perspective. We need to find out the facts and let's have perspective. With all respect to David Brooks he's a never-Trumper. That's fine. But from that perspective, Donald Trump isn't going to do anything David Brooks likes. As I remember famously with David Brooks, he was certain Senator Obama would be a great president because of the crease in his slacks. I mean, with all due respect --
CUOMO: That was a rhetorical flourish from Brooks but let's put that to the side, you've made your point.
Comey has been described by the ‘Paid to Report’ Media, and his colleagues, as being the last Boy Scout in Washington, and if you ask me, another reason he should have been fired. Comey makes copious notes of the one on one meetings he has with Congressional leadership, and if that’s the case, unlike Hillary, should turn over all notes including the ones with Hillary’s email scandal interview, that wasn’t taped, or she wasn’t sworn in, Obama’s closed door meetings, if any, that had to do with the IRS, the Clinton ‘5,’ the paying of ransom to Iran in cash and jewels, and the voter fraud that went on during the primary when Hillary stuck it to Bernie Sanders. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, so let’s play the same game that the left is playing and use the same ‘nuclear option’ that Harry Reid said he would repeatedly use to get Hillary’s proposed regulations on the first and second Amendments, and the progressive appointment to the Supreme court that would gut the rights to bear arms, and then using political correctness to socially engineer our military men in uniform, leaving the borders wide open, and forcing the ingenuity, inventiveness, and developing technologies that America job creating companies out of America, and creating those same American jobs in other countries instead of adding to America’s GDP growth or bottom line, intentionally!
After you read the following, and with the ‘Paid to Report’ Media’s constant attacks on President Trump’s 'anything,’ could you really trust anything that Comey says, and not consider it a possible payback? Secondly, when it comes to the way Comey was fired, and the fact that you can’t fire a government employee without going through Union channels and regulation hoops, and then how traitor Lois Lerner, who retired with benefits intact after targeting conservative special interest groups and denying them their rightful tax exempt status, and with no ramifications or special prosecutor appointed after taking the 5th, and taking the 5th after she made a self-promoting rant!  

Trump comes from a one and done environment, and if he didn’t, he would be gambling on the continued sabotage of disgruntled employees and supporters of FBI Director James Comey. James Comey is a big boy now, and not a Boy Scout, and there is no crying in the FBI, especially when you’re the director, and to know, because I have been fired and fired people in my life, that you’re generally called into an office, dismissed, and then escorted out without going back to your desk/office, and if you need personal belongings from your desk you are asked what and where those articles are and then someone goes and gets them. Being on Wall Street means having a client lists, and most if not all companies won’t give you the chance to take those lists or email any files that might be on your computer when fired. Being the Director of the FBI, and having the classified information that Comey has access to warrants the way he was let go, and if you don't believe me, then call or research the proper way to fire an employee. Trump said, there is no good time to fire anyone, but if you do, it’s much better to do it with the ability to protect the information that the fired individual might take with him, or planning to use/take somewhere else when finding a new job……I hope that’s easy for you to understand, and if you use a little common sense you would know I’m right!
Much of the media’s coverage of James Comey’s firing has focused on Donald Trump’s frequent self-defeating decision-making process.
Without warning and while Comey was out of town, Trump fired him in a manner that many people—even those who thought Comey deserved to be fired—considered demeaning.
But how did Comey, who’s often described as the last Boy Scout in Washington, handle his public humiliation?
Here’s the other half of the story.
Shortly after he was fired, a furious Comey boarded a Department of Justice Gulfstream G550 at Los Angeles Airport and began barking orders at his assistants. .......You're never rational when furious
He tried several times to reach Trump by telephone to get an explanation why he was fired in such a disrespectful manner. No one at the White House would take his call. ......Comey himself admitted that the President didn't have to have a reason to fire him 
He was far from pleased that Trump appointed his deputy, Andrew McCabe, as acting director of the bureau. When McCabe’s wife ran for the Virginia state senate, she received thousands of dollars from a super PAC controlled by Hillary Clinton’s close friend, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.  ..... I agree with the reasoning when it comes to McCabe, but it's only temporary, and not his call.
Comey questioned whether McCabe was too close to the Clintons during the FBI’s investigation of Hillary’s e-mails.
After Comey landed in Washington, he called his wife, Patrice, who was in tears. She told him that the way he was treated by the president made it look as though he had committed some horrible crime. ......I'm feeling the same considerate empathy that President Trump showed Flynn, but still ending with the same resolve, fired! 
Comey vowed to his wife that he would fight back and not allow his firing to be a stain on his character. ......What character, he made a call that wasn't his call when laying out the perfect case why Hillary should have been indicted, but then recommended no further action be taken by using intent and ignoring the letter of the law!
He also told friends that he wouldn’t be cowed by President Trump’s threatening tweet— “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”  ....Candidate Trump took political positions that the other 15 candidates didn't believe in, and when it came to the wall, repealing and replacing Obamacare, building the military up, dumping Common Core, and taking care of our Vets, he was always turned out to be right.

In fact, Comey does not believe there are any incriminating tapes in Trump’s possession, and he intends to give interviews, pen Op-Ed pieces, and write a book about his experience. So, let’s see the half-truths, innuendos, and lies that will be generated from the interpreter tabloids of the left when Comey’s ventures surface and on the shelf. ~~By Ed Klein, a Friend of America!
