Leaks and Lies

Eli Lake in Bloomberg View thinks people in the permanent government selectively leaked highly classified information to damage a political appointee. He calls what happened to Michael Flynn a “political assassination”. Normally intercepts of U.S. officials and citizens are some of the most tightly held government secrets. This is for good reason. Selectively disclosing details of private

Russian Election Hacking

In 2012 President Obama told Russian President Medvedev he would be much more flexible after the election. Obama thought his remarks were private but he was speaking into an open mic in front of tv cameras. Lucky for him, there was no Republican narrative of Russian election hacking in 2012. It might have seemed plausible, considering the fact that Obama repeatedly mocked

Buy Ivanka Dresses Or Else

When Nordstrom dropped Ivanka Trump’s fashion line, President Trump tweeted. He accused the company of treating his daughter unfairly. Ivanka Trump isn’t the first president to defend his daughter. A Washington Post music critic once gave Margaret Truman a bad review for a singing performance. Her father, President Harry Truman, gave him hell: In response to Washington Post Music

Killing Putin

In his Super Bowl interview with President Trump, Bill O’Reilly accused the Russian President of killing people. Trump’s response? “You think our country’s so innocent?” That made me think of one of my favorite exchanges between Michael Corleone and Kay Adams: Michael: My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a

Acting Attorney General Sally Yates Fired

Apparently Sally Yates is just another protester resisting the Trump presidency. Except that she’s the Acting Attorney General. Or was. President Trump fired her when she refused to carry out his immigration law revisions. Sally Yates Profile Senator  Chuck Schemer immediately tried to compare the firing to Nixon’s Saturday night massacre. The wily crying senator even worked

Hitler Unhinged

Some on the unhinged left are confusing President Trump with Hitler. Chris Matthews joined the party, calling Trump’s inaugural speech Hitlerian. At least he didn’t draw a mustache on him. Unhinged When Dan Quayle compared himself to JFK during the 1988 vice presidential debate his opponent Senator Lloyd Bentsen dissed him by saying, “I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack

Trump’s Brief Inaugural Speech

Two things I liked about Trump’s inaugural speech. He only used the word “I” three times. And it was short – 16 minutes. John Kass in the Chicago Tribune wrote, “This wasn’t a smooth-talking politician inviting us to climb aboard his fancy word ship for a voyage beyond the stars. He did not call upon
