December 8, 2018

Friday afternoons are typically the time for news dumps –- thousands of pages of emails and such –- but this Friday brought us so much breaking news concerning the FBI and special counsel that it’s a challenge to sort it all out.  Most news outlets aren’t bothering to sort, though, preferring instead to get hysterical and sensationalize any report that even hints the President is in hot water.


Don’t buy it.  We’re getting a clearer picture of what Russians were trying to do to interfere in our election (and that was supposed to be the purpose of the investigation, right?), but from what I’ve seen, Trump is not implicated at all.  You’d never know that from looking at mainstream media, though.  Be advised:  If you spend much time reading/watching it this weekend, your brain is going to turn to pudding and then Joy Behar will start sounding to you like a profoundly intelligent person.  This has been yet another news day that can be compared to the hysteria over the “milk-drinking” statue of Ganesha in India.


Trump is not in hot water.  Know who is, though?  The FBI and all the usual suspects who were there for the 2016 campaign.  Here’s a suggestion:  while I work on making sense of all the special counsel news for Monday, this is one story that would be good to read now.  It’s from John Solomon, who, while breaking one big story on the Clinton Foundation, also brings us huge new evidence of the FBI’s deliberate misuse of a fake “dossier” to lie to the FISA court and justify spying on associates of then-candidate Donald Trump.  The operative word here is “deliberate”; this evidence shows they knew exactly what they were doing.

    What's with this 'Stacy Alexander' person propagating lies here in this newsletter commentary?
    President Trump has NOT been "found guilty" of ANY felonies by any Judge.
    Thank You Mike for this "Fair and Balanced" and HONEST newsletter.
    Thank You, Thank You !

    Russian Collusion. Big Picture. Let's all admit that the wikileaks emails were damaging to the Clinton campaign. Assange swears that they did not come from the Russians. That doesn't matter to me. The left wants to blame the Trump campaign. THIS, I think, is the involvement by the Russians that affected the election. The leaked emails probably changed votes. Many votes.

    BUT.. the point is not whether the Russians swayed our election in favor of Trump, but are the emails TRUE? no one has ever disputed this, especially during the election when it could have mattered.

    TRUTH is pretty powerful. even more than CNN, and lying politicians. I for one love truth, even when its ugly, stinky and slobbers.

    The President has been found guilty of two felonies, thus far, in this investigation, and all indications are that he did, indeed, collude with Russia. The evidence is undeniable. Plus, look at all of those close to the President that have already pled guilty. Where there's smoke, there's fire. This is a REPUBLICAN investigation. Why you are still protecting this mob boss at this point is beyond me. You, too, probably have things to hide. Sad.

    I appreciate so much having you sort through the news. I don’t know what to think when I read it all and usually rely on your interpretation.

    It is so hard to see and hear Comey he is as phony as he is tall. Back in the day the FBI was able to slow down the Mobs put some of Mobs top boys in jail or other mob leaders would take care of the out of line mobsters. Who today is putting these (crime kings) Comey, past DOJ, the IRS Head, CIA head all those louts should have had their day in court and probably should be serving time right now. If some one knows who will or can bring these guys to justice let me in on it. The big boss has a real good grip, still, on lady justice as he runs around the country saying how good he was. The one thing he ever did other than fund Iran so much money to extend their terror on the world is to ruin America with our tax dollars by creating this crime mob against America, don't hold your breath not many Great Generation guys around to stop them, sorry for the bad news, we may have a chance to put an end to this madness Donald U have to expose whatever U have on them start knocking these king pins down. Remember out of sight out of our mind, are there reservations in a hotel in Cuba Getmo,bay media outlets don't talk about it much anymore fill all the rooms. Let the mob boys learn how to soccer with the other guests and U can pray with a few times a day maybe u can become better people by being with the terrorist it would be a step up as what u are now!!!!!!!!

    I am so sick of how “mainstream” media talks about President Trump. Makes me love him even more!

    I certainly agree with everything you say about truths being reviled. However, I do not see any of the guilty on the left ever being held responsible. I hope I’m wrong.
    Thanks. I appreciate your emails.

    Id be awesome or a ex FISA judge.

    Nice to read a sane commentary amidst all the negative about the President.

    Well hopefully something gets done before the Democrats take control, because everything will come to a screeching halt! But watch the subpoenas start flowing for anyone that has anything to do with Trump. Get that wall built!
