Rosenstein denies NY Times report that he wanted to wear a wire and invoke 25th Amendment

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has been reported by the NY Times to have suggested wearing a wire to record President Trump. He also allegedly tried to gather support in the cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment in order to remove the President for being unfit to perform his duties.

Rosenstein has called the story “factually incorrect.”

Rosenstein Suggested Secretly Recording Trump and Discussed 25th Amendment

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/21/us/politics/rod-rosenstein-wear-wire-25th-amendment.htmlThe episode is the first known instance of a named senior administration official weighing the 25th Amendment. Unidentified others have been said to discuss it, including an unnamed senior administration official who wrote an Op-Ed for The New York Times. That person’s identity is unknown to journalists in the Times news department.

Some of the details in Mr. McCabe’s memos suggested that Mr. Rosenstein had regrets about the firing of Mr. Comey. During a May 12 meeting with Mr. McCabe, Mr. Rosenstein was upset and emotional, Mr. McCabe wrote, and said that he wished Mr. Comey were still at the F.B.I. so he could bounce ideas off him.

My Take

The implications of this are obvious. As the man who assigned Robert Mueller to be special counsel to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Trump’s supporters will call the entire process tainted. Meanwhile, Democrats will detach the two incidents, as if one was an attempt to get to the truth while the other was an individual’s desire to do what he felt was right.

While the NY Times has been accused of using too many anonymous sources to promote the leftist agenda and fake news narrative, this particular story doesn’t fit into those paradigms. As crooked as mainstream media is, they are self-serving above all else. They wouldn’t run a story like this unless they had very strong sources and reasons to believe the accuracy of the accusations.

We may never know whether or not the report is true, but one thing is certain. The President will never trust him again.

George Papadapolous opens up to OAN following release from prison

George Papadapolous opens up to OAN following release from prison

George Papadapolous is freshly out of prison following a 12-day sentence for lying to federal investigators. He spoke to OAN’s Jack Posobiec for an extremely interesting five minutes.

Two big takeaways came from this. First, Papadapolous rightly points out that Michael Cohen was always President Trump’s “fixer” well before the presidential campaign was announced. The notion that he couldn’t have handled the Stormy Daniels and/or Karen McDougal situations without informing then-candidate Trump is ridiculous. His role was specifically to handle situations like that. As Trump’s lawyer, he was empowered to do such things.

That’s not to say President Trump wasn’t informed, but considering the current nature of their relationship and Cohen’s history of lying, it’s feasible to believe he’s lying now to get back at the President and attempt to cover his own asset. Our EIC noted as much last night.

President Trump’s best defense against Michael Cohen is… Michael Cohen

http://noqreport.com/2018/12/11/president-trumps-best-defense-michael-cohen-michael-cohen/If someone needed to be paid off, Cohen would work out the details. If someone needed to be threatened, Cohen would make the call. Listening to recorded conversations of him making such threats reveals that he’s a scumbag. But he was Trump’s scumbag, and part of being a rich man’s scumbag is doing the dirty work without getting the boss involved.

Unless there are better recordings than the ones Cohen has already produced that show then-candidate Trump ordering the hush money, it’s very unlikely the Mueller investigation will yield an indictment. It’s the President’s word against his scumbag fixer’s. Indicting anyone solely on the self-serving word of Michael Cohen would be ludicrous.

The other takeaway is Papadapolous’ calls to declassify the FISA documents. He was on them, so it may not behoove him to have them released unless the government was wrong in filing them in the first place.

I’ve learned to turn to OAN more and more for honest perspectives on real topics. They aren’t Fox News or any of the other mainstream media puppets. Kudos to them, Jack Prosobiec, and the whole team for revitalizing conservative journalism.

Schumer, Pelosi demonstrate why Democrats are right to want new blood in leadership

Schumer Pelosi demonstrate why Democrats are right to want new blood in leadership

Today’s episode of Kabuki theater in DC featured Senator Chuck Schumer and Representative Nancy Pelosi playing partisan politics as usual. It was embarrassing for both of them, and while President Trump wasn’t flawless in his counterattacks, his arguments were sound and he left with the upper hand going forward.

Let’s set aside the border wall or government funding debate for a moment and focus on the tired tactics employed by the two leaders of the Democratic Party on Capitol Hill. One would think that by now, they’d know how to handle their White House nemesis, but they don’t. They even handed the President a victory by letting him “take the mantle” of the impending government shutdown. By accepting responsibility for shutting down the government for the sake of border security, the President demonstrated a rare case of rational and unexpected turning of the tables on the Democrats.

Schumer and Pelosi likely see it as a victory, but when it’s spun and respun in the minds of the people, they’ll realize he did what Schumer and his cronies have always failed to do. He took responsibility for his actions. He is taking a stand and noted that during the previous shutdown, which was initiated by Schumer, everybody pointed fingers. Nobody took responsibility. This is going to count for something.

But let’s get back to the need for new blood in Democratic leadership. I am neither a Republican nor Democrat; currently I’m a conservative Independent who believed in the Federalist Party when I co-founded it but have grown disenchanted with the current direction of that party, so I essentially have no horse in this race. I am by no means rooting for Democrats or offering them advice, but as an impartial observer I can say their recent victories in the midterm election will be meaningless if they retain current leadership.

The only thing funnier than watching Schumer fumble about with his attempt at righteous indignation was watching Pelosi handle her own inspired moment with the elegance of an orangutan. Her attempts to chastise the President were forced and fumbled. She seemed completely outwitted and outmatched.

Democrats can do better. I don’t want them to do better; having Chuck and Nancy leading the charge will only embarrass the Democrats more. But it’s still noteworthy after listening to some of the more eloquent members of their caucus that these two are no longer in touch with the people they purportedly represent.

As the party continues to drift further to the left, Schumer and Pelosi are remnants of days past when bipartisanship and brinkmanship could coexist. That’s not the case today and it may never be the case again. They’re part of the same elite their party despises.

Dr Paul Lim tells how he went from atheist to Christian at Yale

Universities aren’t usually considered likely venues for people to turn to the Christian faith. Ivy League universities rife with atheist professors are even less likely than most to yield a conversions to the faith. If anything, they’re efforts are often directly focused on converting Christians into abandoning their faith.

Dr Paul Lim tells a different tail. His personal journey from South Korea to California, then Pennsylvania on to Yale, is an exception to the rule. His journey is not common, but then again who’s to say what sort of journey to embracing Jesus Christ can be considered common?

It’s not too long, clocking in at just over 48 minutes, and much better than your average network television hour. If you already believe, it may help you open the eyes of others. If you don’t believe, your eyes may be opened.
