Wow, here’s an op-ed by former U.S attorney and deputy assistant Attorney Gen. Harry Litman in USA TODAY that never even mentions that the Manafort trial that started Tuesday has nothing to do with Trump’s campaign.  You would never know from reading this that Manafort’s trial or any of the other charges coming out of the special counsel are not related to that.  So, of course, the assumption will be that they are.  According to Litman, a guilty verdict against Manafort will make Trump’s witch-hunt claim “seem even weaker and more desperate.”  This piece is PART of the witch hunt!

Mueller is described here as “a fine GOP prosecutor.”  Litman quotes Judge Ellis on the possible sentence Manafort faces but conveniently does not share the one about prosecutors getting defendants to “sing” or “compose.”

Litman says, “It has been a mystery for many months why Manafort has steadfastly refused to cooperate with the Mueller probe, given the very high likelihood of conviction.”  Um, maybe because there isn’t any misconduct on Trump's part for him to disclose?  Maybe he’s not a very talented “composer.”

 

The fact that this person has been a U.S. attorney and deputy asst. AG is dismaying but not surprising --- perfectly consistent with what we’re finding out every day about “the swamp.”

From the “Everything You Hear Is Wrong” Dept: 

Last week, the judge in charge of overseeing the Trump Administration’s efforts to reunify over 2,000 children with their illegal immigrant parents took a jackhammer to the liberal narrative by praising the White House, saying it deserves “great credit” for its good faith efforts to bring separated families back together. 

But wait, the rubble of the liberal media narrative is about to be reduced to pea gravel: Turns out there are still hundreds of children in government facilities whose parents are not in federal custody, and it’s longstanding ICE policy to let these parents take their children with them.  But an ICE spokesman said a surprisingly large number of these parents decline and prefer to leave their children in the ICE holding facilities.  He said, “We cannot force a parent to take a child…and we cannot force a child out of the country” without a court order.  So contrary to the anti-Trump politicians and media, there are many kids in those facilities who are there because their parents want them there, maybe figuring they would be better off.

 

Of course, the whole point of our laws requiring the separation of children from adults was to protect the children. It was assumed they would be safer in a facility for kids only instead of in detention centers with adults who might be criminals or sexual predators, or even with people claiming to be their parents who were actually human traffickers. By insisting that they be housed with their parents (or "parents"), the self-appointed protectors of the children may actually be putting them into harm’s way.  

 

It’s a complicated issue, and one I had to deal with as a governor.  News flash: illegal entrants aren’t the only people who are separated from their children.  All people who commit crimes that land them in custody are barred from bringing their kids with them to jail, which requires states to have child services and foster systems to take care of them.  It’s an expensive, complicated problem.  Everyone involved wants to help the kids, and there are disagreements about the best ways; but enforcing the law on parents doesn’t mean you hate their children or want to separate their families.  That was the parents’ doing; the state is just trying to protect their kids from the consequences of their parents’ bad decisions.   

 

You’d think the media would understand such nuances, but if they can further Democratic electoral prospects by simply repeating the canard that “Trump hates immigrants and wants rip children from their mothers’ arms,” then expect that to stay in the headlines from now until November.

More on Roseanne

If you’re not tired of hearing about Roseanne Barr, then you might appreciate this perspective from black comic/actress Mo’Nique.  She not only has a story about Roseanne that she thinks proves she’s not a racist, but that makes some powerful people in Hollywood who likely condemned Roseanne look pretty racist themselves.  Mo’Nique also says she, too, has been blacklisted in Hollywood for saying things she wasn’t supposed to say.  I seriously doubt this will help end that, but hooray for her for having the guts to say it.

Obama did it

I recently commented on the media going ape over President Trump’s so-called “war on the press” because the White House barred one CNN reporter from a Rose Garden event after she interrupted the previous event by yelling irrelevant, hectoring questions.  In that post, I noted an incident in which the White House reporters themselves helped remove a reporter who didn’t show proper respect and awe for President Obama. 

In case you think I was exaggerating, here’s proof I was actually understating the case.  While it’s "the death of the First Amendment" for Trump to bar a single reporter who doesn’t know how to behave in public, this link compiles a long list of examples of Obama banning or even ejecting reporters, either for trying to ask an unwelcome question or merely for representing conservative media outlets he didn’t like. In those cases, the reactions of the other reporters ranged from ignoring the removal of their colleagues to literally applauding it. 

This is why, when liberal news outlets rail about how the vital role of the press in reporting the truth is in danger, conservatives say, “It certainly is. So why don’t you get back to doing that?”

A look at Manafort and Cohen as Manafort trial starts

Tuesday marks the start, with jury selection, of one of Paul Manafort’s two trials –- this one in the U.S. District Court of Eastern Virginia, the other in Washington DC.  The jury pool will be very different for these two trials, and the judges may be, too.  In pre-trial hearings in Virginia, Judge T. S. Ellis III made it clear he knows why special counsel Robert Mueller is pursuing Manafort so relentlessly; he’s seen prosecutors apply pressure to get witnesses to “sing,” or even “compose.”  We all know Mueller is after bigger fish; namely, the Orange Trumpy, known for its brazen behavior and thick skin.

 

Manafort surely has endured much pressure.  He and his wife were awakened, pre-dawn, by armed officials for a search of their home.  While awaiting trial on charges totally unrelated to the Trump campaign, he’s been treated like a convicted criminal, held in solitary for 23 hours of every day.  That’s when suspects typically start “composing.”

 

You know, Manafort might be guilty of these years-old charges.  We don’t know what evidence will be brought against him; reportedly, over 35 people are on the witness list, five of whom have received immunity.   In the Virginia trial, he’s charged with laundering over $30 million in Ukrainian political consulting fees and hiding it from the IRS.  There will likely be testimony about his lavish lifestyle –- his Mercedes, pricey property, finely tailored suits, and high-end furnishings and art.  Maybe he’s a smart businessman who profited from legal investments.  If that’s true, let’s hope his nightmare –- which, it must be said, started because he dared to help elect Donald Trump  –- ends soon.

 

But if he’s guilty, questions arise:  Did Trump know of Manafort’s shady finances when he hired him for his campaign?  If so, why didn’t he anticipate the political fallout?  He trusted Michael Cohen, too, to handle very personal matters before Cohen showed how utterly untrustworthy he is.  What does this say about Trump’s ability to judge character?  These will be issues for Trump to address if Manafort is convicted.

 

https://www.apnews.com/3b598bd2e9ea4007a12243279170a5e8/Manafort-trial-to-focus-on-lavish-lifestyle,-not-collusion?utm_medium=AP_Politics&utm_source=Twitter&utm_campaign=SocialFlow

 

But I’ll give Manafort one thing:  he apparently is loyal, unlike Michael Cohen, who, when subjected to the Mueller search-and-destroy treatment, opted to “flip” and cooperate with the special counsel, even if it meant disclosing that he had secretly taped his own client.  That’s about as disgraceful as it gets, even for an attorney known as a “fixer.”  He could (and should) be disbarred for that, but at this point it hardly matters to his career in law; who in the world is going to trust him with anything now that we know he’s done that?  Likewise, who can believe him when he claims, without evidence, that Donald Trump, Jr., told his father in advance of that meeting with some –- gasp! –- Russians in Trump Tower?  Giuliani refuted this assertion thoroughly in an interview with Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday.

 

Maybe Cohen is looking at a second career in broadcasting, with (appropriately) CNN or perhaps MSNBC.  It’s easy for leakers and liars to get jobs there if they’re sufficiently anti-Trump.

 

Trump’s current attorney, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, said over the weekend that two retired FBI agents examined the recording leaked to CNN of Cohen’s conversation with Trump about paying a Playboy model and concluded that someone had “played” with it.  They say it’s “a tape of a tape.”  Giuliani needs to be able to analyze the original recording but says chances of that are “slim.”

 

Now, I assume that in 2016, they’re not talking literally about a piece of magnetic tape like we used to use when I started in radio.  (I recall one episode of “Columbo” in which the murderer’s secretary would press “play” on a reel-to-reel tape machine in her desk drawer to record all his phone calls.  Her boss’s crafty editing of that tape was used to make it sound as if he were talking on the phone when he was really out murdering.  But I digress.)  I assume this was some sort of voice-activated digital recording.  Gosh, digital recordings are a cinch to manipulate, but experts can still tell.  That includes the way this “tape” abruptly cuts off.

 

Speaking of “Columbo,” I wish we had Lt. Columbo right now, to walk into the special counsel’s office and say, “You know, there’s something about this that bothers me...”

Hysterical news coverage

July 28, 2018

The media have been so desperate to make sure you don’t notice the EU caving to President Trump on tariffs, North Korea starting to keep its promises and GDP growth surging to 4.1% that they've been filling the news this past week with hysterical trivialities.
Today's Commentary: Walter's story: Humility and work ethic pays off for young Marine -- Rosenstein impeachment update; also, Mueller sinks to investigating Trump's TWEETS -- DC: A city of glass houses -- More San Francisco problems -- Facebook faces consumer backlash -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse

Some reports from last week said that Tony Podesta was granted immunity to testify against Paul Manafort in the trial being held in the Eastern Virginia U.S. District Court, the Hon. T. S. Ellis III presiding.  Since this judge has demonstrated he has it pretty clear in his mind what special counsel Robert Mueller is up to –- getting witnesses to “sing” or perhaps “compose” –- I mused about what he might have thought about this particular immunity deal.

But when the list of witnesses against Manafort for the Virginia trial was made public, it did not include Podesta’s name.  Turns out, Podesta’s immunity deal was granted in the OTHER Manafort trial, which is taking place in Washington DC.

Just wanted to make that clear.  Gosh, it’s too bad that Mueller isn’t parading that immunity deal in front of Judge Ellis, who might have had some choice words for it.

Hilarious

Hilarious Twitter Thread: Conservative satirist Iowahawk set out to show how easy it is to gin up a social media jihad against someone for saying something that offends social justice warrior sensibilities, so he launched a shame attack on the irredeemably awful Allegra Budenmayer for the unspecified but unacceptable things she allegedly said.  Who is Allegra Budenmayer?  There is no such person, but that didn’t stop #FireAllegaBudenmayer from quickly becoming a trending hashtag.  It took only one hour before she was reportedly suspended from her job at Rampit Capital (also fictitious), but that wasn’t fast enough, so they were Twitter-shamed, too! 

It’s a brilliant prank, but if you think it’s the first time a furious Twitter mob was mobilized over some offense that wasn’t even real, then you’re living in a fool’s paradise.

Trump follows up with DC summit

For those who want to know what’s actually going on between President Trump and Vladimir Putin, without the circus sideshow of people who don’t know the definition of treason shrieking “TREASON!!”, here’s a round-up of the latest developments. 

The Big Story: Trump has invited Putin to a follow-up summit at the White House.  This will accomplish Trump’s dual goals of finding common ground on which to work with Russia and making the White House Press Corps’ heads explode. 

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/07/20/fox-news-first-trump-invites-putin-to-follow-up-summit-in-washington-pompeo-blasts-absurd-helsinki-criticism.html

Trump said that while he hopes he and Putin are able to get along, if it doesn’t work out, then “I’ll be the worst enemy he’s ever had.”  In other words, the exact attitude he took into his meeting with Kim Jong-Un and virtually every other adversary: offer an open hand of friendship, but with a warning that if you don’t take it, it will be replaced with a fist.  But with Putin, it’s entirely different because…because?…because “RUSSIA!” or something.

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/19/trump-says-he-will-be-putin-worst-enemy-if-relationship-fails.html

Trump also reportedly disagrees with Putin’s request to interview former US diplomats and intelligence officers in exchange for letting Robert Mueller talk to the 12 Russians he indicted for hacking during the 2016 election.  When Trump earlier called that an “incredible” offer, maybe he meant literally “not credible.” 

Former Ambassador Andrew McFaul said Putin was trying to create a “moral equivalency between a legitimate indictment with lots of data and evidence to support it from Mr. Mueller with a crazy, cockamamie scheme with no relationship to facts and reality whatsoever.” We all know Mueller’s team would never be investigating something like that!

All joking aside, this shows one of the pitfalls of the Democrats and the media pressuring Trump to demand that Russia hand over its citizens who are indicted in America. It could open up a Pandora’s box, setting a precedent in which countries with no Constitutional protections start indicting Americans, such as military people or intelligence officers (or ambassadors) and demanding that we hand those Americans over to them. 

This is why, for years, Republican Presidents have refused demands from the left to submit to the UN’s International Court of Justice, or “World Court,” system.  We recognize its jurisdiction on a case-by-case basis, but maintain veto power if we disagree with it.  Globalists depict this as America being out of step with the rest of the world, but actually, the rest of the world is sadly out of step with us.  Until every nation on Earth adopts the same Bill of Rights that Americans enjoy, there’s no way American citizens should ever be forced to submit to any “global” legal authority.

If fired FBI Director James Comey told you that you must forget policy differences for now and vote for Democrats this fall if you believe in this country’s values, what would you do?  Laugh in his face, right?  That makes me wonder just who was supposed to be on the receiving end of his ridiculous tweet.  Does he think he’s influencing Trump supporters?  If so, he has to be even more out of touch with reality than we thought.

OUR TOP STORY: Yes, Lisa Page had FBI counsel, but actually answered questions!

“History has its eyes on us,” he said.  Our history won’t be written for a long time, but I don’t think James Comey is going to come out looking very good.   At least he didn’t say we as Trump supporters are on “the wrong side of history,” because that expression is getting really tired.

I hardly have to point out why a Democratic victory is so important to Comey and other current and former government officials, but here it is, anyway:  If Democrats win, ALL ITS INVESTIGATIONS OF THE INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES WILL CEASE, AND IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST TRUMP (NO EVIDENCE REQUIRED) WILL BEGIN.

 



If Democrats win Congress, we’ll be headed back to the way it would have been if “the insurance policy” had worked and Hillary Clinton had been elected in 2016.  (No doubt she and Obama will even be calling the shots.)  Everything that has to do with her corrupt State Department tenure and 2016 campaign will be buried, and Democratic power will be solidified and protected by the nation’s bureaucracies for the foreseeable future, at any cost.

Sorry, Mr. Comey, but I don’t share your “values.”  You let Hillary off the hook for obvious and very serious crimes.  You set the wolves on President Trump when there was no evidence of wrongdoing on his part.  You and your colleagues worked to further a false narrative for political purposes, and I think your attempts to do so are absolutely abhorrent, including your deluded and sanctimonious tweets.  With all your condemnation of Russia, your attempt to determine the power structure of this country through the actions of a non-elected bureaucracy smacks of old-time USSR values, not American.

If Democrats take control and stop the truth from coming out, it will be a tragedy for our country.

It’s hard even to imagine how loud Democrats’ screams of “treason!!!” would be if Trump were, say, caught on a hot mic telling Putin’s emissary that he’d have more flexibility after he was safely re-elected.  They’ve been trying hysterically to keep the false “Russia collusion” narrative going through the midterms, but it just doesn’t work any more.  They’re like the bad magician whose movements reveal every trick and whose strings cast noticeable shadows in the spotlight.  We’re wise to them, even if they’ve come to believe the fantasy themselves.

 

In 2016 and even before, our intelligence agencies knew Russians were OF COURSE trying to infiltrate our voting systems.  They did nothing to stop it.  They suspected that some of Trump’s campaign associates had perhaps had contact with Russian agents.  They did nothing to stop it.  If they were really concerned about Russia influencing the outcome of our election, they would have alerted the candidate himself.  They did not, preferring to set a trap and implicate him.

 

It’s not generally my style to tell someone to shut up, but if it were, this would be the time.  Rational people are sick of you, Mr. Comey.  You brought disgrace to the FBI.

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/in-midst-of-political-storm-comey-urges-americans-to-vote-democrat/

 

As for former CIA Director John Brennan, he should be ashamed as well, but he won’t be.  If he hadn’t been so all-out vicious in his anti-Trump tweets, we might be able to believe he wasn’t a big part of the effort to derail Trump’s candidacy and, later, presidency.  But just as Brennan can’t resist expressing his true colors in hateful tweets and downright seditious statements on MSNBC, wildly accusing Trump of treason, he no doubt couldn’t resist using his power and connections in any way possible to stop Trump in 2016.

 


Commentary continues below advertisement


It’s hard to believe a man like Brennan was actually confirmed by the Senate to head the CIA when Obama appointed him in 2013.  For starters, they had to know he voted for the Communist Party in the 1976 election (America’s, not Russia’s) when we were deep in the Cold War.  (He said it was due to his “unhappiness with the system”; I assume he didn’t mean the Communist system.)  How is that ever justified for the head of our foreign intelligence service?  But --- oh, wait --- it was a Democratic majority led by Sen. Harry Reid.  (Rand Paul tried to filibuster, but on another issue.)  Now it makes sense.
