Democrats and the Media Love Cops Now
by Elizabeth Harrington 
{ freebeacon.com } ~ Of course their love is limited to top cops who misled the FISA court to get a surveillance warrant on a private citizen... inserted themselves into the 2016 election, stonewalled Congress, and showed political bias. Not exactly the rank and file, but at least it's something. The sudden support for law enforcement is of course a reaction to President Trump, who they claim is engaging in an "all out attack on the rule of law." The New York Times says pointing out that the FBI used political opposition research paid for by the Democratic party as the basis for a warrant to spy on a volunteer member of the opposing political campaign is an "unparalleled war on a pillar of society: law enforcement."...   http://freebeacon.com/blog/democrats-media-love-cops-now/?utm_sourc...

Crazy New 2018 Laws and Bills in Blue States 
{ americanlibertyreport.com } ~ The New Year is well under way and that means we have a new opportunity to point at the leadership of blue states and laugh at them for their ineptitude... For some strange reason, President Donald Trump still hasn’t been impeached due to Russian collusion that never happened, taxes are being cut, the economy is booming, pay raises are happening, and immigration laws are being enforced like never before. To cope with the tsunami of conservatism that is Making America Great Again, blue states are simply going to try to legislate their way into a happy place — and that means they are proposing or enacting some of the nuttiest laws you will see this year. Here are some the craziest new laws that are either being considered or which will go into effect in blue states in 2018...  http://www.americanlibertyreport.com/articles/crazy-new-2018-laws-a...

This Program Stops Terrorists From 
Entering the US and Should Be Expanded
by Paul Fredrick and  David Inserra
We may be 16 years removed from 9/11, but make no mistake—terrorists are still trying to enter the United States... Kirstjen Nielsen, the new secretary of Homeland Security, made it clear as day in a recent speech on her department’s anti-terror efforts: On an average day, Homeland Security encounters seven individuals on the terrorist watch list seeking to enter our country by air, land, or sea. That’s 50 a week; 2,000 a year. These statistics highlight the sheer number of potential terrorists seeking to enter the U.S., and by extension, they show the importance of providing our security agencies with the best resources and information available. Without good intelligence on criminals and potential terrorists, U.S. security has a difficult time vetting those wishing to enter our country...  http://dailysignal.com/2018/02/06/program-stops-terrorists-entering...

FBI lovers' latest text messages: 
liar-nObama 'wants to know everything'
by Jake Gibson

{ foxnews.com } ~ Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points... 
for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President liar-nObama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing." The message, from Page to Strzok, was among thousands of texts between the lovers reviewed by Fox News. The pair both worked at one point for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016, about prepping Comey because "potus wants to know everything we're doing." According to a newly released Senate report, this text raises questions about liar-nObama's personal involvement in the liar-Clinton email investigation...  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/07/more-texts-between-strzo... .

Memo to Dan Rather: Shut up about memos

by MICHELLE MALKIN
{ wnd.com } ~ Old liberal media liars never fade away. They just rage, rage against the dying of their dinosaur industry’s light.

I’m looking at you, Dan Rather

After years of trashing alternative media, which exposed the veteran CBS News reporter’s monumental Memogate fraud in 2004, Rather has joined the ranks of pajama-clad online broadcasters. The 86-year-old grandfather of fake news now uses Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to stoke the left’s anti-Trump resistance – all while clinging bitterly to the vestiges of his defunct “legendary” newsman persona.

Consider Gunga Dan’s comments on the House Intelligence Committee’s release of the four-page Nunes memo alleging domestic surveillance abuses by politicized FBI brass working with Democratic operatives.

“Most respectable analysts,” Rather asserted, “have determined that the contents of the memo are thin.”

Who determined that these unnamed analysts are “respectable”? Dan Rather. Why are they “respectable”? Because they confirm Dan Rather’s opinions. Why are Dan Rather’s opinions more valid than others? Because he’s Dan Rather, the veteran teleprompter reader America must trust.

“With the release of the memo,” Rather railed, “the goal of the White House and its willing enablers is to make what is really the truth into a forgettable sidebar.”

He lambasted “cherry picking” and taking things “out of context.” And, Rather fretted, “what will be the endgame if a big segment of the public confuses what they hope to be true with what turns out to be true?”

This “disgraced former journalist” fraudster’s got more gall than a bladder bank.

Document Dr. Dan is the man who fronted the notorious “60 Minutes” propaganda hit piece on George W. Bush based on fake documents about his Texas Air National Guard service in the 1970s and nonexistent sources upon whom Rather’s team relied to verify these documents.

If that self-validating circularity of bogusness sounds eerily similar to what the Nunes memo revealed, you’ve been paying attention.

Rather and his CBS team perpetuated journalistic fraud of the highest order. Conservative bloggers and alternative media called out Dan Rather and his con-artist producer Mary Mapes for their malpractice. CBS denied this and delayed addressing the hoax. The mainstream media tried to shoot the messenger and discredit critics of CBS/Rather.

The evidence of bias was overwhelming – forcing CBS to appoint an independent review panel that concluded that the network “failed to follow basic journalistic principles in the preparation and reporting of the piece,” was “rigid and blind” in its defense, and demonstrated “myopic zeal” in its manufacturing of the Bush/National Guard fraud. After the report was issued, Mapes and three executives were fired and the editorial practices at CBS were revamped.

The New York Times infamously coined the phrase “fake but accurate” to describe the left’s stubborn defense of the four manufactured memos attributed to Texas Army National Guard commander Lt. Col. Jerry Killian. Less remembered are the scathing conclusions of the independent panel that identified these worst defects of Rather’s work in 2004:

“1. The failure to obtain clear authentication of any of the Killian documents from any document examiner;

“2. The false statement in the September 8 Segment that an expert had authenticated the Killian documents when all he had done was authenticate one signature from one document used in the Segment;

“3. The failure of 60 Minutes Wednesday management to scrutinize the publicly available, and at times controversial, background of the source of the documents, retired Texas Army National Guard Lt. Col. Bill Burkett;

“4. The failure to find and interview the individual who was understood at the outset to be Lt. Col. Burkett’s source of the Killian documents, and thus to establish the chain of custody;

“5. The failure to establish a basis for the statement in the Segment that the documents ‘were taken from Colonel Killian’s personal files’;

“6. The failure to develop adequate corroboration to support the statements in the Killian documents and to carefully compare the Killian documents to official TexANG records, which would have identified, at a minimum, notable inconsistencies in content and format;

“7. The failure to interview a range of former National Guardsmen who served with Lt. Col. Killian and who had different perspectives about the documents;

“8. The misleading impression conveyed in the Segment that Lt. Strong had authenticated the content of the documents when he did not have the personal knowledge to do so;

“9. The failure to have a vetting process capable of dealing effectively with the production speed, significance and sensitivity of the Segment; and

“10. The telephone call prior to the Segment’s airing by the producer of the Segment to a senior campaign official of Democratic presidential candidate hanoi-John Kerry – a clear conflict of interest – that created the appearance of a political bias.”

Fourteen years later, after courts laughed his $70 million lawsuit against CBS out of court, the blog-blaming fake news forefather has the audacity to hold forth on truth, trust, accountability.

Sit down, Dan Rather. Be humble.

ALERT ALERT

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

(TeaParty.org) – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

Judicial Watch 🔎 @JudicialWatch

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
