How John Brennan helped keep Obama ‘scandal free’

October 16, 2020 WND

Like “Pulp Fiction’s” Winston Wolf, John Brennan’s job – even before the CIA veteran joined the Obama administration – was to “solve problems.” One immediate problem candidate Barack Obama had to solve was his 1981 trip to Pakistan. No one knew about this trip until Obama strategically discussed it during a San Francisco fundraiser on April 17, 2008.

This oversight would have been of minimal interest were it not for the fact that Obama’s passport file had been breached four times beginning in January 2008, the story about which broke just weeks before the San Francisco fundraiser. To its credit, CNN reported a critical fact the New York Times did not find newsworthy, namely that the prime perpetrator worked for The Analysis Corporation (TAC), whose CEO “advises the Illinois Democrat on foreign policy and intelligence issues.” The CEO of that small company was John Brennan.

Will Obama’s ‘scandal-free’ legacy survive Obamagate?


“He is almost unimpeachable,” said presidential historian Douglas Brinkley. “He has governed with such honesty and integrity, and he’s not only leaving with that 60 percent [approval rating] we keep talking, but a growing reputation. And the legacy of having eight scandal-free years is going to look larger and larger in history.”

Can an historian be impeached? By any sane definition, the Obama administration was awash in scandal. Just on its own, the mischief surrounding the passage and implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – aka “Obamacare” – puts Obama in the Harding-Grant strata of scandal-plagued presidencies.

Can the Democrats Sell Their Worst Candidate Ever?

American Thinker

For all their talk about empowering women and minorities, leftists have used all their vast media, tech, and deep state power to sell America a corrupt old white guy of diminished mental capacity. To do this they have had to suppress the fact that — by any standards — Biden is a pedophile, a plagiarist, a liar, and a hypocrite, and — by the left’s standards — a racist, sexist, and warmonger as well as a credibly accused sexual predator. Democrats better hope postal workers don’t go on strike.

The Fascist America That Kamala Promises

October 7, 2020 American Thinker

I do not use the term “fascist” lightly, but when even the liberal Los Angeles Times opens an article with a paragraph like the one that follows, I think fascist is apt: “California Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris is drawing fire from supporters of an anti-abortion activist whose undercover videos and identity cards were seized by the state Department of Justice this week after Harris’ political campaign sought to drum up support for Planned Parenthood.”

Why Do Republicans Fall for the White Supremacy Trap?

American Spectator

No one watching the presidential debate Tuesday night understood the trap “moderator” Chris Wallace set for President Trump better than Iowa Rep. Steve King. As a result of that trap, King is now serving his final days as a congressman. King has seen it all before, up close and personal, which is why he will no longer be a congressman after January 2021. An outspoken Christian constitutionalist and a staunch defender of Western civilization, King has been ruffling establishment feathers since first elected to House in 2002. The frontal assaults from the media he had grown used to. The stabs in the back took him by surprise.

Not the first tag-team debate, nor the worst

October 1, 2020 WND.COM

When Romney moved in for the kill, Candy left the moderator chair and jumped into the ring.

Chris Wallace’s performance was flagrant enough, but if an award were given to the most obvious tag-team partner in a presidential debate, that award would have to go to Candy Crowley, then with CNN for her performance in the second Obama-Romney debate. Here is what happened on the issue of Benghazi:

Looking quizzically at Obama, Romney asked, “You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror? It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what you are saying?” Obama answered uncomfortably, “Please proceed. Please proceed, Governor.” Romney did, saying to Crowley he just wanted to get Obama’s response on record. In the background Obama could be heard saying, “Get the transcript.” The camera then showed Crowley waving a piece of paper that could easily have been mistaken for the transcript. Said Crowley to Romney, “He did in fact, sir, call, so let me call it an act of terror.”

The Left’s Unfortunate Turn From Atticus Finch to Benjamin Crump

American Spectator

Atticus was once the left’s role model. Now the mob is.

With precious little comment from the mainstream media, American progressives have disavowed Atticus Finch and aligned themselves with the mob in front of the county jail — this summer, the mob calling for the head of whichever white cop Benjamin Crump has chosen to lynch.

This is no small transition. The Atticus of To Kill a Mockingbird (not the buzzkill Atticus of the Harper Lee’s earlier effort, Go Set a Watchman) defies the racist mob and demands due process. Crump stirs up the racist mob and subverts due process. Atticus leads with evidence. Crump leads with accusations. Atticus sticks to the facts. Crump invents facts, occasionally invents witnesses, and consistently conjures up an America foreign to every black person under 70.

Seth Rich: The Murder Washington Doesn’t Want Solved

September 29, 2020 Amerrican Thinker

On the face of things, the July 2016 murder of Seth Rich had intrigue enough for a full season of House of Cards. Unknown assailants gun down the young DNC data analyst at 4 A.M. on a Washington, D.C., street and take nothing.  Two weeks later, international man of mystery Julian Assange strongly suggests on Dutch TV that Rich was his source for the purloined DNC emails then roiling the Democratic Party and offers a $20,000 reward to find the killer.

Three days before the November election, Assange reportedly tells liberal media analyst Ellen Ratner that Rich was indeed his source.  Days after Trump’s inauguration, legendary investigative journalist Sy Hersh cites an FBI report confirming Assange’s claim.  Later that year, DNC honcho Donna Brazile dedicates her book Hacks to Rich and wonders out loud whether the Russians had “played some part in his unsolved murder.” Despite the stakes — the Trump presidency hinged on the investigation’s outcome — there was to be no TV series about Rich’s life and death, no movie, no serious books, not even a single episode of Unsolved Mysteries or 48 Hours.  Incredibly, no major publication or network save for Fox News has even attempted to resolve the still unsolved murder, and Fox execs rather wish they hadn’t.

The ‘Fahrenheit 451’-style ‘firemen’ are coming after me

September 26, 2020

In “Fahrenheit 451,” the state employs “firemen” to burn paper lest the few civilians who care about books avail themselves of information the state does not want them to have. Years ago, young journalists aspired to gather information and spread it. In recent years, however, the firemen on the left, like those in Bradbury’s novel, aspire to destroy inconvenient information before it can spread.

If firemen succeed in suppressing all real information about a truly major story, they can win a Pulitzer as the firemen at the New York Times and Washington Post did for their “coverage” of the Russia collusion story. Firemen cannot be embarrassed. The Times and Post shared this “national reporting” honor in 2018 when half of all America knew what a cock-up the whole thing was. As the saying goes, the only difference between the Times and the old Soviet Pravda is that Pravda readers knew they were being lied to.

What Trump’s Nominee Can Expect from a Media ‘Cancerous With Dishonor’

American Thinker

Two years ago, Mark Judge was nearly crushed when the tumbril carrying high school pal Brett Kavanaugh to his intended execution ran him over.  I caught up with Mark this week, and I am happy to report he has recovered from his unhappy stint as Democratic roadkill. Over the years, I have gotten to meet any number of other truth-tellers crushed by a media that Judge calls “cancerous with dishonor.”  I tell many of their stories in my new book, Unmasking Obama.  An excellent writer, Mark Judge tells his own story and does so eloquently.
Judge is the first to admit he was a troubled young man.  In 1997, as a form of atonement, he wrote an only slightly fictionalized book titled Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk.  He could never have guessed that more than twenty years later, Democrats would use the book in a clumsy — but nearly successful — plot to derail Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.
