Donald Trump Jr. Tells Sean Hannity That The Dow Exonerates His Dad

After James Comey’s Senate hearing Thursday, Donald Trump Jr. told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the stock market’s rise amid the proceedings cleared the president’s name.

“When the Dow hits another all-time record right during the testimony, you know that he’s been exonerated,” President Donald Trump’s eldest child said. “The markets basically said this has been nonsense.”

The market did indeed peak toward the end of the testimony, CNN reported, but Wall Street’s reaction doesn’t exactly constitute a judge and jury.

Following an earlier Twitter rant, the president’s elder son had more to say to Hannity after the much-anticipated testimony, which focused on conversations between Trump and then-FBI director Comey about the bureau’s probe of alleged links between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Reasonable people are seeing that this has just been one big witch hunt,” Donald Trump Jr. said. “They see how disgusting the swamp really is. They see the teeth that are there, and I think they’re going to realize that, ‘Hey, give the guy a chance. Let him do what he was elected to do, and he’ll do a phenomenal job.’”

In an ominous remark for many, he said he was happy for liberals’ “over the top” attacks on his father. “It’s going to make 2020 that much easier.”

How come no one asks Tom Cruise about Scientology?

New York Post, by Maureen Callahan Posted By: Fiesta del sol- Fri, 09 27 2017 11:27:11 GMT On his latest press tour for “The Mummy,” Tom Cruise has taken questions about his stunt work, his co’stars, his “Top Gun” sequel — all the toothless, boilerplate stuff Tom Cruise usually gets asked.But why won’t anyone pose the one question he really should answer: How can Cruise possibly remain not just a Scientologist but its leading ambassador?Even those with a glancing knowledge of the organization understand it’s deeply sinister. Yet over the past few years, the American public has learned more about Scientology, and Tom Cruise’s crucial role in it, than ever.The publication of Lawrence Wright’s award’winning book “Going

GOP Replacement For Obamacare´s Individual Mandate: Worse Than Doing Nothing

Investor´s Business Daily, by Sally Pipes Posted By: RockyTCB- Fri, 09 43 2017 11:43:32 GMT Few provisions within Obamacare have proved less popular than the individual mandate, which requires all Americans to secure insurance or pay a fine. Unfortunately, some Senate Republicans are proposing a replacement that´s even worse. As part of their bid to repeal Obamacare, Sens. Bill Cassidy, R’La., and Susan Collins, R’Maine, want to allow states to automatically enroll the uninsured in health plans. At least Obamacare let people choose whether to buy health insurance or not. Sens. Cassidy and Collins are calling for an even heavier dose of government paternalism, one that would increase federal spending, line the pockets of insurers, and raise

While No One Was Looking, Congress Took A Huge Step Toward Fixing The Economy

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff Posted By: RockyTCB- Fri, 09 49 2017 11:49:01 GMT Deregulation: Former FBI director James Comey´s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee was the fixation of Washington on Thursday. But the big story was on the House side of Congress, which passed a bill to repeal the ruinous Dodd’Frank banking law. The Financial Choice Act, approved in the House by a 233’to’186 vote (no Democrats voted for the bill), has generated almost zero attention. But it has the potential to be the most economically beneficial legislation Congress will consider this year. Put simply, Dodd’Frank has been a complete failure. Signed into law by President Obama almost seven years ago in

On Display In Russia Hearings, Democrats´ Trump’Hatred Is Worthy Of Captain Ahab

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff Posted By: RockyTCB- Fri, 09 51 2017 11:51:50 GMT Trump And Russia: If there´s one thing Congress´ Russia hearings have shown, it´s that President Trump has driven the Democratic Party and far’left media to near insanity. How else can you explain their unhealthy fixation on all things Trump and nonstop efforts to end his presidency? No, we´re not joking. Listening to the hearings on Wednesday and Thursday, when National Intelligence Director Dan Coats, National Security Director Adm. Michael Rogers, Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and former FBI Director James Comey testified, was a revelation. In their questioning, Democrats were plainly not interested in the truth. They merely hoped for something, anything,

Behind Trump’s silence: Why the counterpuncher let others do the punching

Washington Post, by Philip Rucker and Robert Costa Posted By: Drive- Fri, 09 10 2017 12:10:41 GMT All day Thursday, President Trump had nothing to say — on his preferred medium of Twitter or anywhere else. He let others do his talking. During James B. Comey’s extraordinary Senate testimony, it was Donald Trump Jr., the president’s 39’year’old son, who played his father’s usual role of Twitter foil, firing off snarky put’downs. “Is this a joke?” Trump Jr. asked at one point. It then fell to Marc E. Kasowitz, the president’s personal lawyer, to deliver Trump’s formal response: A scathing, pugnacious rebuttal declaring the president’s innocence, implying that Comey lied under oath and labeling the former FBI director a “leaker.” Trump let
