Mrs. Greenspan Gets Her Comeuppance

Look up the class picture for Media Hack High School, Class of 1954, there is the lovely Mrs. Alan Greenspan, née Andrea Mitchell. Rude, partisan, pushy, obnoxious, and a political idolator. And those are her GOOD points. Apparently being a media shill for the democrat party doesn’t pay that well, because she had to marry former Fed chairman, Alan Greenspan, a walking corpse who is so old he owes Jesus three bucks, for some financial security. Having to spoon feed him his oatmeal and change his Depends is the price she pays. She works hard for the money. Her reputation as a media whore is well-earned.

As is her wont, she tried to intrude in the meeting Secretary Tillerson had with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and shout questions at the Secretary. The Russians don’t tolerate that, since the only news organization is state-run. Lavrov found her as annoying as the rest of us do and scolded her as a child.

‘Who brought you up?’ The moment Russia’s foreign minister appeared to SCOLD NBC’s Andrea Mitchell for her manners after she asked a question before press conference started
NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell appeared to be scolded for her ‘manners’ by Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov
Exchange happened during a press conference in Mosco for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s meeting with Lavrov
Before anyone could sit down at the table at start of presser, Mitchell can be heard shouting two questions at Tillerson
Lavrov quickly interjected and said: ‘Who was bringing you up? Who was giving you your manners, you know?’
Incident comes after Mitchell was escorted out of a press conference on March 7 between Tillerson and the foreign minister for Ukraine for how she behaved
Mitchell later said she was not scolded and that it was instead her colleague Carol Morello of the Washington Post

This is also not her first incident with Tillerson (above left on Wednesday next to Lavrov), as a little over a month ago the veteran journalist was kicked out of a State Department press conference for repeatedly shouting questions at Tillerson.

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell Ejected From State Dept. Room Asking Tillerson About Russia, China, Ukraine
NBC’s Andrea Mitchell was not allowed to ask questions during a photo-op with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin before a meeting on the seventh floor of the State Department. She asked several questions anyway and was asked to leave the room.

She asked Tillerson about threats from China and Russia’s relationship with Ukraine and was met with silence.

To Klimkin she asked: “Are you sure that the Trump administration will be strong against Vladimir Putin? Can you assure us that Russia will not be able to move forward in Ukraine?”

Andrea Mitchell Hilariously Claims She’s Not a Clinton Hack; ‘That Isn’t My Reputation!’
In another gooey interview released on Monday, MSNBC host and NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell hilariously told Politico Magazine columnist and friend Susan Glasser that she was not a Hillary Clinton hack or a liberal journalist because “that isn’t my reputation” and claimed the Clinton campaign press “harass[ed] her…all summer long about the private server.”

The 49-minute fawning podcast was a pure spectacle and conversations no different than what you’d find inside the Democratic National Committee. Espousing a holier than thou aurora and painting a doomsday, totalitarian view of Trump, Glasser swooned over how “Mitchell seems to love it” in taking on Trump.

Hillary Gushes Over NBC’s Andrea Mitchell at Impromptu Presser
‘I love you Andrea, you’re indefatigable — you’re my kind of woman’
It’s no wonder Mitchell is Clinton’s kind of woman. The cozy relationship between Clinton and Mitchell is emblematic of the extent to which the mainstream media acts as a sort of collective Pravda for the Democratic Party.

Santelli Calls Out Andrea Mitchell: ‘On Election Night, I Never Saw You So Unhappy’
On Meet the Press, reacting to reports that the Russians were happy on Election Night because Trump won, Santelli said to Andre Mitchell: “On Election Night, I never saw you so unhappy. You pick sides. Everybody picks sides.” An indignant Mitchell, protecting her [illusory] reputation for objectivity, shot back: “That’s not true, Rick. That’s just not true.” Sure, Andrea.

The sad part is that these people are so lost in their liberal ideology they cannot understand what fools they make of themselves. No conscience, no morals, no soul.

The Left Scores Again

Two days ago: Nunes: ‘I will NOT recuse myself.’
BREAKING: Rep. Devin Nunes Steps Aside From Russia Probe
It’s what the left does, yell and scream that impropriety when they are the ones being improper.

After a number of ethics complaints, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., announced today that he will step aside from leading the House Intelligence Committee’s probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“Several left-wing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics. The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power,” Nunes said in a statement released this morning.

“Despite the baselessness of the charges, I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter,” he said.

We hate Devin
And we’ll shout him down so that he cannot speak
But please don’t think it’s in any way unique
When we stampede media from leak to leak
We hate Devin
Must remove him ere he finds that which he seeks
So we’ll drown him out with all our outraged shrieks
And stampede the media from leak to leak


Rep. Schiff: The accusation against Susan Rice by the Breitbart crowd and by people in this building that I think are tossing around slanderous accusations without evidence.

House intelligence committee chair steps aside
The chairman of the House intelligence committee says he will temporarily step aside from the panel’s probe into Russian meddling in the election.

Judicial Watch: Only Crimes in Russia Scandal Are from ‘Obama Gang’

Government transparency activist group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the United States Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Department of the Treasury (DOT) seeking records related to the investigation of retired United States Army Lieutenant General Michel Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Breitbart News spoke exclusively to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, who said, “We’ve been looking into this story for months now and the only crimes connected to this Russian scandal we’ve been able to find so far are the illegal leaks of information and the violations of privacy by the Obama gang.”

Judicial Watch filed a FOIA on January 25, 2017 and only filed the lawsuit after the agencies failed to respond. The FOIA request was for “Any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the investigation of retired Gen. Michael Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak between October 1, 2016 and the present.”

The suit claims that “Defendants are violating FOIA by failing to search for and produce all records responsive to Plaintiff’s requests or demonstrate that the requested records are lawfully exempt from production.”

Obama’s cozy nuclear moment with the Russian president

On Monday, March 26, 2012, while taking part in a global nuclear security summit in South Korea, President Obama was caught on a hot mic reassuring Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would “have more flexibility” after his re-election.

  • President Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.”
  • President Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”
  • President Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”
  • President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you.”

Dayum, She’s Quick

The original plan was to call this post Obama Gate, Tower Gate, Deep State Gate. My dear friend CtH, ever vigilant, did her post as I enjoyed my morning nap.

What is disgusting is that Obama has never gone away. He is staying in Washington, running the covert acts of sedition the left thinks are going to bring down the Trump administration. The faithful whores in the media are in full vigor, advancing every unsubstantiated, demonstrably false assertion from the left while at the same time screaming when Trump claims his lines were tapped before the election to PROVE IT!!

Here’s the List: More Than a Dozen Proven Victims of Obama’s Many Wiretaps
It is not unfounded that former President Obama would wire tap President Trump during the election process. This is because he has done this before. Here is a list of individuals who were wire tapped by the Obama Administration.
Obama is no stranger to wire tapping. His administration tapped phones and computers of friends and foe alike.

Ask James Rosen and Angela Merkel about Obama Spying
Clapper may think that the Obama administration is incapable of such an act, the same Obama administration that used the IRS in a way Richard Nixon only dreamed of in targeting the Tea Party movement. Such an act would indeed make Watergate look like, well, a third-rate burglary. Clapper forgets as well how the NSA and the Obama administration spied on world leaders, starting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel:

Edward Snowden later released classified documents that proved Clapper lied to Congress.
On Sunday Clapper denied reports that the Obama administration was spying on Donald Trump.

Chris Coons walkback: “I have no hard evidence of collusion” between Trump world and Russians
Contradicts prior suggestion of possibly incriminating transcripts
As if proof were needed at the time of an accusation for a media that has put Trump on trial for the last 6-8 months based on innuendo about Trump campaign ties to Russia. As pointed out repeatedly, there is zero proof in the public record of such media and Democrat accusations, and no proof was demanded by the media.
In fact, Democratic Senator Chris Coons recently suggested there were incriminating transcripts of calls involving Trump or his associates:

Yet on Fox News Sunday this morning, Coons admitted (as Sen. Tom Cotton also stated on the show) that there is no hard evidence of collusion:

DeepStateGate: Trump Ends the Wiretapping Innuendo Game by Dealing Himself In
The White House is placing a substantial bet on what Congress will uncover. Don’t expect those cards to be dealt swiftly because such investigations take time. The Obama administration was highly adept at stalling investigations until the Democratic media could pronounce them “old news” and ignore the outcome.
The Trump administration can distinguish itself by cooperating energetically with this one and helping it move forward quickly. Rest assured that no matter how long it takes, the media will never consider it “old news” as long as there remains any chance for anyone connected with the Trump 2016 campaign to get in trouble over contacts with the Russians.

Obama Admin Source Confirms Wiretapping Was Conducted
A source inside the Obama administration acknowledged that wiretapping was conducted to spy on Trump during the 2016 Presidential election.
“Democrat Kathy Arue: “My sources from the White House told me, she thinks it’s all true. She said, um there were concerns that Trump-and this is from the White House and the administration inside the White House…there were concerns that Trump and his surrogates may have been colluding with the Russians and a possible bargaining chip to influence the election, therefore a wiretap was conducted.”
That’s a load of crap.
The Obama administration knew there were no Trump ties to Russia that is just the excuse they are using now to try to cover for their illegal activity.

Holder Admits to Coup Led By Obama

Media Hypocrisy: Jeff Sessions and Russia vs. Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress
We spend a lot of our time correcting misreporting, slopping reporting, and reporting presented as objective when it clearly is not.
Increasingly, it’s apparent the attempt to oust newly-minted Attorney General Sessions was a good, old-fashioned media hit job. Who was behind it, we don’t know. These things seldom happen on their own, especially in the age of a completely incurious press.
The good folks over at the Media Research Center studied media coverage of the Sessions incident and compared it with the amount of coverage previous Attorney General Eric Holder received when he was in contempt of Congress. The results? Well, they’re pretty much exactly what you’d expect them to be, sadly.
Seven times more coverage was devoted to Sessions.

Report: Trump furious that Sessions recused himself
Sessions said he made his decision after consulting with officials at the Justice Department, who recommended he should no longer participate in the probe.
Washington Post reporter Robert Costa tweeted Saturday morning that President Trump left the White House “in a fury” on Friday, “fuming about [Jeff] Sessions’s recusal and telling aides that Sessions shouldn’t have recused himself,” also calling the reports of his meeting “bull.”
ABC News also reported that Trump went “ballistic,” on Friday, also over the Sessions news
Hours before the Sessions press conference, Trump threw his full support behind his embattled attorney general, who was a loyal campaign surrogate, and insisted he should not recuse himself from the inquiry.
Trump officials have repeatedly dismissed the Sessions accusations as partisan attacks against the president in the aftermath of his speech.

Pence Goes On The WARPATH After The AP Release His Wife’s Email Address
In a low blow move that wouldn’t surprise anyone that was remotely plugged into the political environment, the utterly one-sided media lap dogs of the Democrats pulled off a move that cements the reason why Americans are disgusted with the institution that should be working for the people instead of a political party.
That email address was sent out Friday, contained within the 29 pages of old AOL emails that were released to the public by the Indianapolis Star. They themselves obtained the emails through an open information request.
The Vice President was furious when he found out… And he and his wife found out the ugly way when emails began to pour into her account, filled with malicious messages

Trump wiretap charge flummoxes law enforcement officials as FBI head reportedly asks DOJ to reject claim
“How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!” he tweeted.
Trump’s charge also left many in the White House and Justice Department confused and scrambling over the weekend to find any kind of factual backup for the president’s accusations.
Also Sunday, the New York Times reported that FBI Director James Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly reject Trump’s assertion. According to the Times, Comey argued that Trump’s claim falsely implied that the FBI had broken the law. The Justice Department had not issued any such statement as of Sunday evening.

#ObamaGate Is a Lot More than a Hashtag
Forget the usual smokescreen of hyper-partisan blather from Chuck Schumer on “Meet the Press” or the myriad calls for Trump’s head from the usual press suspects and consider the situation: Congressional committees, the FBI, not to mention numerous avid media organizations and who knows who else (NSA? CIA? ASPCA?) have been investigating putative Trump-Russia collusion for some time now and come up with… exactly nothing.
Are they likely to come up with something of significance at this point? Almost certainly not.

Leaks and unnamed sources fuel media’s plan to destroy Trump
To judge by their scattershot approach, the conspirators are fishing for a bombshell. The fallback goal is to inflict death by a thousand cuts.
Already they’ve gotten one scalp and part of another. Gen. Mike Flynn is gone, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions is wounded. Each made a mistake that obscured a larger truth: Somebody in the government has been spying on Trump’s team and giving top secret information to anti-Trump media outlets.

Flashback: First FISA Request on Trump Tower Came After Clinton and AG Lynch Met Privately on Tarmac
Was it coincidence or an indication of things to come?
Snakes on a Plane.
On June 27th of 2016, Bill Clinton met secretly with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
A week later FBI Director James Comey laid out in a press conference the many scandalous activities taken by Hillary Clinton while she was President Obama’s Secretary of State and then he said the famous words:
“Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
We now know that the meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch occurred at about the same time that the Obama administration filed a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers.
No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continued, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes.
The Obama administration was monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.
