The Wolff Is At The Door

As you have no doubt heard, there is a new book out, “Fire & Fury,” subtitled “Inside the Trump White House,” that raises more questions than it can possibly answer.

To begin with, why did Steve Bannon, a newcomer to the Trump Administration, grant Michael Wolff, a journalist of no particular distinction and questionable ethics, carte blanche to sniff into every corner of the White House?

The next question is why Steve Bannon said so many stupid things about Trump, his advisors and his relatives, referring to more than one of Trump’s nearest and dearest as “treasonous and unpatriotic,” although one would naturally assume if they were the first, you’d hardly need to mention the second.

It occurs to me that, as someone once observed about some other double-dealing swine, “With Steve Bannon as a friend, you don’t need any enemies.”

It would seem to me that Bannon’s attempt to portray himself as a kingmaker was every bit as misguided as Trump’s decision to make the lout an advisor. The one thing you can credit Bannon with is that he cost the GOP a seat in the Senate by pushing Roy Moore’s candidacy when Trump already had a man he could count on, Luther Strange, seated in the Senate.

But with this latest betrayal, Bannon will have about as much influence in GOP politics going forward as Chelsea liar-Clinton.

But the biggest question is why Trump and his lawyers are trying to get an injunction against Holt Publishing. The President has no chance of invalidating the First Amendment simply because he’s annoyed with the book’s content. Mr. Wolff has every constitutional right to freely express himself on the subject of Donald Trump. I’m sure Trump won’t be happy with the book. I’m pretty certain I won’t be. But I’d be a lot unhappier if politicians, even those residing in the Oval Office, had the power to censor books or articles that displease them or their followers.

What does upset me is that Trump’s lawsuit guarantees that “Fire and Fury” will top the best seller lists for the next several months. Why give Mr. Wolff such a gift when I’m willing to wager Wolff didn’t even vote for him?

Can you imagine how Trump could have hyped my book sales if he’d even mentioned them, let alone attacked them?!

* In New York City, a black person is 50 times likelier to shoot or be shot at than a white person. And although I’m sure that Mayor De Blasio would prefer to parrot BLM’s contention that it’s because of white racism and white cops, the truth is that it’s because too many urban blacks are raised by street gangs, not by the men who sired them.

In Chicago, more than two dozen black children under the age of 12 were killed in 2017, and not a single one was victimized by a cop. They were all killed by other blacks, generally as collateral damage when young black males were shooting at other young black males over drugs, money or sexual jealousy.

We keep hearing black activists in and out of Congress insisting that it’s high time we had an honest conversation about race in America. I still recall Attorney General scum-Eric Holder claiming that white Americans lacked the courage to have such a conversation. Unfortunately, scum-Holder, Loretta Lynch and Barack liar-nObama, were the ones who lacked the courage to deal with the truth.

The truth is that the main reason that urban blacks are on the bottom rung of society and are doomed to remain there for the foreseeable future is because black men have decided that getting an education, learning a trade, getting married and only then having children and raising them, is “acting white.”

Black men demand respect, but very rarely do anything to deserve it. Then, to top things off, even the small percentage of black men and women who behave responsibly insist on voting for the Democrats, who know that if the welfare gravy train ever stops or even slows down, they will never win another presidential election.

* I believe that the single biggest reason that sex scandals went on for so long is because the law condones non-disclosure agreements. Why should Bill O’Reilly, Harvey Weinstein or Mitt Lauer, or their employers, have been allowed to conceal settlements with injured parties, whether the pay-offs were court-ordered or conducted between two sets of lawyers?

For that matter, why should manufacturers who produce a product with built-in problems -- knowing the problems may very likely prove fatal, but deciding its cheaper to pay off the relatively small number of victims than spend the money to eliminate the problem – be allowed to conceal the eventual pay-offs?

* Gordon Strader sent me a video that apparently showed liar-Hillary Clinton in a flowery meadow reminiscent of Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music,” but instead of singing the title tune, Mrs. liar-Clinton is singing a parody of “My Favorite Things.”

Because I don’t watch videos, Mr. Strader was kind enough to supply me with the lyrics to “My Favorite Excuses,” the work of some wag named Tony Olson.

Feel free to hum along: “Top Secret Data purloined by a gremlin/ Misdeeds exposed with some help from the Kremlin/ Wikileaks published the emails we tossed/ These are a few of the reasons I lost.

“Draft Beer and Vino and Vodka Martini/ All disappear like I’m a friggin’ Houdini/ It’s not a secret I like to get sauced/ These are a few of the reasons I lost.

“Girls in blue dresses, with DNA traces/ liar-Bill has me threaten the girls he embraces/ With my assistance he’s free to accost/ These are a few of the reasons I lost.

Chorus: “When I’m lying, testifying, I concoct a tale/ I look for excuses and others to blame/ And then I won’t go…to jail.

“Tantrums and breakdowns and fake tears with tissues/ Obvious signs of some medical issues/ Fainting and stumbling and eyes that go crossed/ These are a few of the reasons I lost.

“Because of my gender I think I’ve been slighted/ There’s a good chance I may be indicted/ Image as cold as a New England frost/ These are a few of the reasons I lost.”

Breaking:  FBI Admits Comey Leaked Memos 
 That Were Classified   Material! 

The FBI turned over the Comey memos to Congress today after missing their deadline earlier in the week.

Congressional leaders threatened to impeach deep state leaders if they continued to stall on the memos.

Fired FBI Chief James Comey wrote about the memos in his book and leaked the documents to reporters last year. Congress has not yet had a chance to look at the memos — Until tonight.


Meaning Fired FBI Chief James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS TO THE PRESS.

From the report:

From the DOJ to Congress:

Therefore, pursuant to your request, we are providing the requested memoranda in both the redacted and unredacted formats for your convenience. Consistent with your request, we are providing an unclassified version of the documents redacted to remove any classified information.

The DOJ wrote Congressional leaders this evening.

Hannity: Good news for Trump, crushing blows for the left

GOP Congressional Leaders Nunes, Gowdy And Goodlatte Release Statement On Comey Memos

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued a statement on the memos later tonight.

The House chairmen note that the memos prove that fired Director Comey never felt obstructed or threatened from his relationship with the president.

And… former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel.

The Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence published the statement tonight:

Today House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued the following statement:

“We have long argued former Director Comey’s self-styled memos should be in the public domain, subject to any classification redactions. These memos are significant for both what is in them and what is not.

Former Director Comey’s memos show the President made clear he wanted allegations of collusion, coordination, and conspiracy between his campaign and Russia fully investigated. The memos also made clear the ‘cloud’ President Trump wanted lifted was not the Russian interference in the 2016 election cloud, rather it was the salacious, unsubstantiated allegations related to personal conduct leveled in the dossier.

The memos also show former Director Comey never wrote that he felt obstructed or threatened. While former Director Comey went to great lengths to set dining room scenes, discuss height requirements, describe the multiple times he felt complimented, and myriad other extraneous facts, he never once mentioned the most relevant fact of all, which was whether he felt obstructed in his investigation.

The memos also make certain what has become increasingly clear of late: former Director Comey has at least two different standards in his interactions with others. He chose not to memorialize conversations with President Obama, Attorney General Lynch, Secretary Clinton, Andrew McCabe or others, but he immediately began to memorialize conversations with President Trump. It is significant former Director Comey made no effort to memorialize conversations with former Attorney General Lynch despite concerns apparently significant enough to warrant his unprecedented appropriation of the charging decision away from her and the Department of Justice in July of 2016.

These memos also lay bare the notion that former Director Comey is not motivated by animus. He was willing to work for someone he deemed morally unsuited for office, capable of lying, requiring of personal loyalty, worthy of impeachment, and sharing the traits of a mob boss. Former Director Comey was willing to overlook all of the aforementioned characteristics in order to keep his job. In his eyes, the real crime was his own firing.

The memos show Comey was blind to biases within the FBI and had terrible judgment with respect to his deputy Andrew McCabe. On multiple occasions he, in his own words, defended the character of McCabe after President Trump questioned McCabe.

Finally, former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel, yet he took no steps to spur the appointment of Special Counsel when he had significant concerns about the objectivity of the Department of Justice under Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

As we have consistently said, rather than making a criminal case for obstruction or interference with an ongoing investigation, these memos would be Defense Exhibit A should such a charge be made.”
