Michael Wolff is a left-leaning “journalist,” and I use that term broadly. He writes books that mix a few truthful statements with lies that are so vast that the credibility of every word is called into question. Wolff’s new book, Fire & Fury: Inside the Trump White House is no exception. Even Wolff has admitted that much of his book isn’t true, but merely “rings true.”
One of the many lies in Wolff’s book was that Melania “cried tears, not of joy” when Donald Trump won the election. This has been proven entirely incorrect. Melania categorically denied the claim by noting that his book should be sold in the “bargain fiction” section. And of course, she’s right.
Multiple people around Melania on the night of the election, including Cindy Adams from PageSix, have confirmed that no one saw Melania cry at all. Michael Wolff just made the story up out of thin air. How does anyone take this stuff seriously? (Read more…)
Sheriff Joe is back. He didn’t go quietly into the night after President Trump pardoned him and saved him from prison time, or at least a seriously difficult set of legal proceedings.
Sen. Jeff Flake announced his resignation a few months ago and Arpaio believes he would be a good fit for the seat. Flake was a pretty staunch conservative in the House but became less so in the Senate. Arpaio at least has the reputation of being very conservative. But can he actually win?
He has received serious criticism for his immigration policies and his pardon was divisive even among conservatives. There will be quite a few contenders in the primary, but the Republican residents of Arizona need to pick someone who can win the general election. Only time will tell of Arpaio can be that person.

In a recent piece in The New York Times, two investigators at Fusion GPS wrote an attempted takedown of the Republican investigation into the Steele Dossier. They say that Christopher Steele, the creator of the dossier, shared his documents with Sen. McCain so that he could alert the United States national security community about interference from a foreign power. McCain then provided the documents to the FBI while James Comey was the acting director.
There’s no indication of whether McCain knew if the dossier was credible or who was responsible for funding it, but with all his clout he should have had done his research before passing it along. Whether it was intended or not, McCain was pivotal in getting this ridiculous document into the hands of FBI officials. (Read more…)
Bandy Lee might be in some serious trouble. She’s a Yale professor who decided to recklessly opine about President Trump’s mental health and his fitness to hold office. At an event held by Connecticut Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, Professor Lee concluded that Trump needed to be forcefully diagnosed and then removed from office. As Attorney Alan Dershowitz recently said, this sort of thing is using medicine as a political weapon, and it “undermines democracy.” It gets worse for Lee, however.
It turns out that her license to practice medicine lapsed two years ago in Connecticut. Although her ridiculous statements about Trump should have already discredited her, the lack of a license should make it clear that she’s a political hack, not a disinterested medical professional. (Read more…)
Remember the “insurance policy” that former member of the Mueller investigation Peter Strzok mentioned in texts to his mistress, Lisa Page? It looks like recent revelations might shed light on what that policy was, and Rep. Jim Jordan is on the case. In an interview with Martha MacCallum on Fox News, Jordan discussed newly released text messages between Strzok and Page. They indicate that the two were working in some capacity to release anti-Trump information, (which was likely inaccurate), to the media.
So let’s just break this down. Strzok saved Hillary from prosecution by altering the language in the Comey memo, then worked with Comey to investigate President Trump — based on uncorroborated information in the Steele Dossier. While all of this was going on, Strzok and Page planted stories to damage Trump’s credibility. Tell me again why I should trust the FBI? (Read more…)
Get ready to listen to liberals whining that this means Trump is guilty of collusion. Why else wouldn’t he just meet with Mueller for an interview? Well, that’s easy. Like liberal attorney Alan Dershowitz said, “I would never let the prosecution interview my client.” No good lawyer would. That President Trump was willing to be interviewed before is a testament to his clean conscience. He said, “when you’ve done nothing wrong, let’s be open and get it over with.”
But his attorneys clearly know otherwise. Trump doesn’t need to engage in this nonsense. He’s the President of the United States, and this investigation is over a year old. If you have something on him, reveal the charges. If not, let’s end this charade. (Read more…)
