UC Santa Cruz College Republicans meeting disrupted by leftist protesters, three arrested

Fox News, by Caleb Parke Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 20 48 2017 09:48:50 GMT Leftist protesters interrupted a College Republicans meeting Sunday night in the library at the University of California, Santa Cruz, calling members “fascists,” “racists” and “white supremacists” during a lengthy demonstration that ended in three arrests. Though the College Republicans initially offered to speak to the protesters, those demonstrating refused to leave and demanded instead the Republicans end their meeting. One person in attendance, a Democrat, stood up, however, and defended his right’leaning fellow students. “I immediately stood up and confronted them,” Phil Leonard told Fox News. “I was the only one to stand up and confront them.” The school’s director

Let the Russian’crimes whistleblower testify

New York Post, by Editorial Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 20 52 2017 09:52:47 GMT A key informant in the Russian bribery and extortion scheme to gain control of US atomic resources wants to tell Congress what he knows — but is legally barred from doing so. That’s the latest bombshell to emerge from The Hill’s exposés this week that the Obama administration knew all about the scheme yet still OK’d a deal to give Moscow control of one’fifth of US uranium. Moreover, the unidentified informant tried to tell his story by filing a lawsuit during last year’s campaign — but was squelched by the Obama Justice Department. According to his lawyer, Reagan’era Justice official Victoria Toensing,

Dem Rep On Weinstein: It’s The Responsibility Of The Female Not To Behave In A Way That’s “Inviting”

Hot Air, by Allahpundit Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 20 58 2017 09:58:27 GMT For fark’s sake. The guy’s accused of rape, by more than one woman. What sort of behavior does she think “invited” that? Even his somewhat less egregious offenses are inexplicable in terms of an invitation. Does anyone think Lauren Sivan put out the vibe upon meeting famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein that she was hoping to watch him furtively whack it into a potted plant in a dark corner of an empty restaurant kitchen? The more aggressive harassment is, the harder it is to explain in terms of a misconstrued female “invitation.” Actual assault is plainly indefensible, yet here’s Eddie

Hillary implicated in Russia probe

Boston Herald, by Michael Graham Posted By: Pluperfect- Fri, 20 13 2017 10:13:08 GMT Hey, mainstream media! We finally found it — a real Russia scandal involving the 2016 election. With actual evidence of criminal wrongdoing and everything! So come on, New York Times, CNN and MSNBC, let’s … Hey, where’d everybody go? For months I’ve been doing TV hits as the token conservative and getting grilled over “Russiagate.” Did Donald Trump and the Russians collude to steal the election from Hillary Clinton? And for months I’ve been asking the same questions: Where is the evidence of an actual crime? And since “collusion” isn’t necessarily against the law, what actual crime are Democrats and their media

Campaign Aides For Jeff Flake’s Primary Challenger Apologize Profusely For Ever Supporting Her

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens Posted By: Pluperfect- Fri, 20 23 2017 10:23:07 GMT Two prominent staffers on Arizona Republican Kelli Ward’s primary campaign against sitting Sen. Jeff Flake have officially issued an apology to everyone in the state for helping to legitimize Ward as a serious political candidate.

Both are also former Breitbart reporters. “After running her campaign, we’ve

Nikki Haley on Russia´s interference in 2016 election: ´That is warfare´

Associated Press, by STEVE PEOPLES Posted By: Attercliffe- Fri, 20 23 2017 10:23:57 GMT NEW YORK — President Donald Trump´s chief envoy to the United Nations is describing Russian interference in the 2016 election as “warfare.” U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley lashed out at Russia´s efforts to “sow chaos” in recent elections during a Thursday conference hosted by the George W. Bush Institute. Haley said, “The Russians, God bless them, they´re saying, ´Why are Americans anti’Russian? And why have we done the sanctions?´ Well, don´t interfere in our elections and we won´t be anti’Russian.” She added, “When a country can come and interfere in another country´s elections, that is warfare.” Trump has questioned the intelligence community´s determination that Russia

Self’Anointed Rainmaker Steve Bannon Dances Only During Cloudbursts

National Review Online, by Jonah Goldberg Posted By: Pluperfect- Fri, 20 25 2017 10:25:34 GMT A Washington lobbyist once told me that the first rule of rainmakers is “If it starts to rain, dance!” In other words, if you’re hired to get something done, by all means take credit for it if it happens, even if you had nothing to do with it. Another version of the same principle is Ferris Buellerism. In the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” the precocious teen sees a parade in downtown Chicago and proceeds to run in front of it as if he’d been leading it all along. Fired White House aide Steve Bannon is a quintessential Ferris Bueller.

The Comey Conundrum

Power Line, by Scott Johnson Posted By: Pluperfect- Fri, 20 30 2017 10:30:26 GMT Former FBI Director James Comey knows how to play the G’Man as a straight arrow on television, but he’s a cynical Washington operator in real life. His orchestration of the appointment of his friend Robert Mueller as special counsel to take down President Trump in the fictitious Russia collusion scandal (and all its penumbras and radiations) represents a striking case in point. Comey’s hand in it should discredit the Mueller operation all by itself. Comey is a sort of Rosetta stone for the Russia investigation. Interpreting him and his works might allow one to decipher the hieroglyphics. I’m not saying I’ve
