Democrats Playing Dumb On Executive Privilege

Yesterday, Democrats were playing dumb to gain a political advantage, and Attorney General Sessions shot them down in the clearest and politest terms possible.

Judicial Watch: Newly Released Emails Reveal More Clinton Corruption And Security Failures

Our friends at Judicial Watch have released another 2,078 pages of documents revealing more instances of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sending and receiving classified information via an unsecured email server. They also show Clinton’s daughter Chelsea and others involved with the Clinton Foundation receiving special favors.

Obama FBI Employee Goes Rogue Marries ISIS Terrorist

The Daniella Greene case shows the incredible level of dysfunction at the Obama-Comey era FBI both in its security clearance procedures and, at the leadership and operational levels, in its understanding of the threat Islamism poses to America and constitutional liberty.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions: More Trump Than Trump White House

Yesterday Attorney General Sessions declared: “For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era. The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws, and the catch and release practices of old are over.”

Governors Go To Pot

The governors of  Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska want President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to continue Obama's backdoor legalization of marijuana at the federal level, rather than pursue a straightforward decriminalization passed by Congress.

#ObamaGate Is a Lot More than a Hashtag

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

My guess is this will all come down to whether our former president knew about this wiretapping -- whoever authorized it and wherever it came from -- and, if so, when. And also how he reacted to it and what he did from there.  It's all, in the grand Clintonian tradition, about what the definition of "ordered" is.

America’s Biggest Lawbreaker versus Donald Trump

As we wrote in The Law That Governs Government, efforts by bureaucrats within the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, and even the Justice Department and national security infrastructure to undermine the Trump administration are signs that the administrative state is openly hostile to the constitutional rule of law.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say Leakers Must Be Prosecuted

Conservatives agree with President Trump that the illegal leaks used against Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn are the true scandal, and that the leakers should be found and prosecuted, according to a new poll by FedUp PAC.

Gee, I’m Starting to Think the Obama DOJ Just Might Be Politicized

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

They took extraordinary measures in a shaky case involving Trump but refused to help FBI investigations involving Hillary and the DNC. You’d almost think the Obama Justice Department makes enforcement decisions based on partisan politics.

Putting the Justice Department back on track

Sen. Orrin Hatch, Washington Times

Nearly two-thirds of Americans say that the country has been on the wrong track. That certainly describes the Department of Justice. Just last year, I spoke out about how the department had been politicized, compromised, weakened, and even corrupted. Jeff Sessions is the right person to put the Justice Department back on track.

Do Illegal Voters Decide Elections?

Hans Von Spakovsky and John Fund, Wall Street Journal

How common is this? If only we knew. Political correctness has squelched probes of noncitizen voting, so most cases are discovered accidentally instead of through a systematic review of election records. The bottom line is that the honor system doesn’t work. There are people—like those caught voting illegally—who are willing to exploit these weaknesses that damage election integrity.

A Trump Strategy to Neuter HUD's Attacks on Local Rule

During his campaign, Donald Trump talked about “draining the swamp.” Much of the swamp is in the federal agencies, such as the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and their penchant for sub rosa regulation.

Clinton Campaign Chairman Had Multiple Dinners With Top DOJ Official During Clinton Email Investigation

Chuck Ross, Daily Caller

The day after Hillary Clinton testified in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi last October, John Podesta, the Democrat’s campaign chairman, met for dinner with a small group of well-connected friends, including Peter Kadzik, a top official at the Justice Department.

Attention #NeverTrump: To Preserve The First Amendment We Must Elect Donald Trump

#NeverTrumpers seem to forget that Clinton’s hostility toward the First Amendment could be put into practice by her appointments not only to the Supreme Court, but also to the Internal Revenue Service, Federal Communications Commission, and the Justice Department. The appointees would follow a heavily partisan course, prosecuting Clinton’s Republican and conservative opponents and making the #NeverTrumpers’ dream of a post-Trump rebuilding of the Republican Party with them in charge unlikely if not impossible.

Comey Tries To Justify Giving Hillary Clinton Get Out of Jail Free Card

It is apparent that some in FBI management blindly followed what they were told to do — exonerate Hillary Clinton. The decision was so damaging to morale that you know things are bad at the FBI when Director James Comey releases a memo to all employees justifying his decision not to file charges against Hillary Clinton, but that’s exactly what happened yesterday.

Hillary Clinton’s New Classified Email Revelation

Fox News’ award winning chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge observed in an appearance on Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record” that the email exchange was almost office gossip in nature. Which begs the question what kind of judgement was Clinton exercising in gossiping about classified information via email hosted on her unsecured server?

Conservative Leaders: Stop Transgenderism Transforming American Self-Government & Putting All Children at Risk

We believe that there is a profound need to examine the basis of “transgender rights” before framing any public policy aimed at sheltering these rights at the expense of the privacy and safety of the public. If you share our concerns then please add your name to the list of conservative leaders who oppose Obama's left-wing bureaucrats creating new extra-constitutional "transgender" rights.

Hillary Clinton Gets Campaign Cash From Department of Justice Employees

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

The Department of Justice is investigating Hillary Clinton and she has received $75,000.00 from DOJ employees. Former US Attorney Matt Whitaker, the executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, is calling for a special prosecutor to deal with the Clinton investigation. This news should, in a sane world, bolster his case.
