Gregg Jarrett: If Rod Rosenstein defies Trump’s order to declassify documents, he should be fired

Gregg Jarrett: If Rod Rosenstein defies Trump’s order to declassify documents, he should be fired

President Trump has ordered that numerous documents involving the Russia investigation be declassified.  The records have long been sought by Congress under lawful subpoenas.  Yet, the FBI and Department of Justice have consistently obstructed the release of these materials under the guise of “classified” secrets.  This is a convenient alibi all too frequently employed to cover-up wrongdoing and abuse of authority by those we entrust to uphold the law.

China has a ‘chilling’ system to control everyone

China’s chilling dictatorship is moving quickly to introduce social scorecards, in which all citizens will be monitored 24/7 and ranked on their behavior.  The Communist Party’s plan is for every one of its 1.4 billion citizens to be at the whim of a dystopian social credit system, and it’s on track to be fully operational by the year 2020.

It Wasn’t Comey’s Decision to Exonerate Hillary – It Was Obama’s

The thing to understand, what has always been the most important thing to understand, is that Jim Comey was out in front, but he was not calling the shots.

On the right, the commentariat is in full-throttle outrage over the revelation that former FBI Director Comey began drafting his statement exonerating Hillary Clinton in April 2016 – more than two months before he delivered the statement at his now famous July 5 press conference.

THE CLARENCE THOMAS INQUISITION REVISITED: BRETT KAVANAUGH IN EGYPT

The Preacher wrote: “That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

There are lessons to be learned from an understanding of how the Bibledeals with false accusations, the use of evidence, and the biblical method of handling disputes.

The #MeToo Kavanaugh Ambush

The woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of a drunken assault when both were teenagers has now come forward publicly, and on Monday it caused Republicans to delay a confirmation vote and schedule another public hearing. Yet there is no way to confirm her story after 36 years, and to let it stop Mr. Kavanaugh’s confirmation would ratify what has all the earmarks of a calculated political ambush.

Bruce on Obama Taking Credit for Economy: He ‘Didn’t Understand How’ Trump’s Policies Would Work

Conservative commentator Tammy Bruce took issue with former President Obama taking credit for the burgeoning economy over the several months.

“We worked hard to turn this economy around. The actions that we took during the economic crisis” added to the economic growth, Obama said at a rally for Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray.

Bruce said Obama is speaking out and patting himself on the back because “he’s worried about his own legacy… about how he’s viewed.”

Kavanaugh faces uncertain future after woman accuser breaks silence, Republicans worry in private about midterms

After the allegations against Kavanaugh made by Christine Ford, the White House says it won’t yank the nomination and may even gird for battle. A spokesman for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, says aides are working to set up additional calls with Kavanaugh and Ford “ahead of Thursday’s scheduled vote.”

In other words, GOP leaders aren’t backing down from a committee vote on Kavanaugh Thursday and an effort to confirm him on the Senate floor by the middle of next week.

Here’s the problem:

The Dems “Anita” Brett Kavanaugh

It’s uncanny how closely the Democrats are following the Anita Hill playbook as they try to “Anita” Brett Kavanaugh, looking to prevent his confirmation as a Supreme Court Justice. Like Hill, Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford is a professor who made her accusation in the expectation of anonymity, never dreaming that newspapers from coast to coast would blazon her name across Page One. Hill had received assurances from a Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee staffer that, in all likelihood, Clarence Thomas would quietly withdraw his name from consideration, to spare himself and his family embarrassment.

She claims that Kavanaugh knocked her down, groped her, and attempted to remove her clothes. Here’s the core of her story:

Editorial: Some would see Georgia gubernatorial win as validation of socialist revolution

A year ago, Georgia legislator Stacey Abrams boasted to the liberal Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta of having set out in 2008 to “disrupt the operations of the Republicans and slow down their agenda.”

“We weren’t going to overthrow the legislative order,” she said. “We didn’t have the means to topple the speaker of the House. But we could make their work harder. We could summon their victims to the Capitol. We could resist.”

SOURCE: FBI AGENT TOLD CONGRESS THE BUREAU USED LEAKED STORIES TO OBTAIN SPY WARRANTS, FBI PUSHES BACK

The FBI is disputing a claim that an FBI analyst told Congress on Friday that the bureau uses information leaked to the press to obtain surveillance warrants against American citizens.  On Monday, North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows tweeted that Congress had “learned NEW information suggesting our suspicions are true: FBI/DOJ have previously leaked info to the press, and then used those same press stories as a separate source to justify FISA’s Unreal.”

In a blow to public sector unions, Supreme Court overturns 40-year-old precedent

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Wednesday in Janus v. AFSCME that nonunion workers cannot be forced to pay fees to public sector unions.

The case, one of the most hotly anticipated of the term, is the second in two days to hand a major victory to conservatives, following Tuesday’s ruling by the high court that President Donald Trump’s travel ban is constitutional. Some experts had said a finding in favor of the plaintiff, Mark Janus, would be the most significant court decision affecting collective bargaining in decades.

Trump signs executive order to stop family separations at border

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally — moving to stop the family separations that have triggered a national outcry and political crisis for Republicans.  The measure would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time. This comes as congressional Republicans scramble to draft legislation to address the same issue, but face challenges mustering the votes. In signing the measure, Trump said he wants to keep families together while also enforcing border security. He vowed his administration’s “zero tolerance” policy for illegal immigration would continue.

The Anti-Trump Media’s ‘Missing Kids’ Myth

The viral story not a mistake but the product of unchecked bias.  It was a mistake so egregious and so widespread that even the New York Times, the flagship of liberal journalism — and not the source of the original story — felt it had to devote an article to explaining how it happened.  Last weekend a horrifying tale about the Trump administration “losing” 1,500 children was all over the Internet. The hashtag #Wherearethechildren went viral on Twitter. Adding fuel to the fire was a photo depicting children being kept in cages.  The only problem was that the children weren’t lost and the photo was taken during the Obama administration. The Left’s eagerness to embrace this “fake news” stemmed, according to the Times’s Amanda Taub, from “partisan polarization,” and as a result the tale “spread across liberal social media.”

Rosenstein threatened to ‘subpoena’ GOP-led committee in ‘chilling’ clash over records, emails show

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to “subpoena” emails, phone records and other documents from lawmakers and staff on a Republican-led House committee during a tense meeting earlier this year, according to emails reviewed by Fox News documenting the encounter and reflecting what aides described as a “personal attack.”  The emails memorialized a January 2018 closed-door meeting involving senior FBI and Justice Department officials as well as members of the House Intelligence Committee. The account claimed Rosenstein threatened to turn the tables on the committee’s inquiries regarding the Russia probe.
