Trump tears into Cryin Chuck: “what a creep”

President Donald Trump enjoyed dinner with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, on Tuesday, the last night of his three-day jaunt to the United Kingdom. At 1 a.m. local time, his mind apparently turned to a foe from back home: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who Trump called a “creep” in a furious tweet.

“Can you imagine Cryin’ Chuck Schumer saying out loud, for all to hear, that I am bluffing with respect to putting Tariffs on Mexico,” Trump wrote. “What a Creep. He would rather have our Country fail with drugs & Immigration than give Republicans a win. But he gave Mexico bad advice, no bluff!”

Byron York: Law enforcement, media changed standards for Trump

One of the more unfortunate effects of the Trump-Russia investigation — and there have been many — is the weakening of traditional standards of argument and proof in the public debate over allegations that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to fix the 2016 election. (Just for the record: It didn’t.)

In particular, angry disputes about the president have done terrible harm to the principle that an investigator, be it a journalist or a prosecutor, should meet at least some standard of proof before leveling an accusation.

John Dowd: More evidence coming that shows Mueller report is a fraud

Isn’t it ironic that this man who kept indicting and prosecuting people for process crimes committed a false statement in his own report?” Dowd said. “By taking out half my words,” he added that they changed the “tenor and the contents” of his conversation with Flynn’s lawyer.

“It’s an outrage. And there’s probably more of it,” he said.

Viva socialism! Maduro tells Jorge Ramos: New Yorkers have to eat too

The interview concludes when Ramos asks about the Venezuelans who eat garbage. Venezuela has largely run out of food, the product of the government nationalizing most of the nation’s agricultural land and giving it to socialist cronies who have no experience in growing food. Maduro gave the military full control of the nation’s food supply and implement a program called the “fatherland card” to ration the food. Venezuelans also get free food through the Local Committees for Supply Production (CLAPs), who use the food to manipulate civilians into supporting Maduro. Those who reject socialism are left without food. As a result, an estimated thousands of Venezuelans dig through garbage to find something to eat.

Other peoples money: Illinois’ Reckless $45 Billion capital spending binge exposed

When Governor Pritzker announced a $41.5 billion capital spending plan a couple weeks ago we thought it was surely just a pie-in-the-sky first offer – that economic realities and unpopular tax hikes needed to fund so massive a plan would chop it down to something reasonable.
Silly us. The plan has now increased to $45 billion.

To get a sense of the enormity of that number, consider that it’s over twice the state’s combined annual revenue from personal and corporate income taxes. It dwarfs all recent capital spending programs. The Illinois Jobs Now capital plan under Governor Pat Quinn was for $18.0 billion in new projects and $11 billion of reappropriations from previous years. Governor George Ryan’s Illinois FIRST was for $12 billion. The Build Illinois program under Governor Jim Thompson was $2.3 billion.

Sharyl Attkisson: 10 questions I would ask Robert Mueller

Mueller must have had his reasons for shading his commentary in that way rather than in the other direction: If they’d found adequate evidence to implicate Trump in a crime, or even “collusion,” they would have said that, too.

The statement Mueller chose to give carries with it an implication that his team looked for evidence of President Trump’s innocence but simply could not find it. With that in mind, I thought of a short list of questions I’d like to ask Mueller, if ever permitted to do so:

The answers Hillary Clinton owes America

The Clinton team’s dirty trick was as diabolical as it was brilliant. It literally used house money and a large part of the U.S. intelligence apparatus to carry out its political hit job on Trump.

After two years of American discomfort, and tens of millions of taxpayer dollars spent, it’s time for the house to call in its IOU.

Hillary Clinton owes us answers — lots of them. So far, she has ducked them, even while doing many high-profile media interviews.

Comey’s FBI failed to document four Clinton witness interviews

The FBI failed to document at least four interviews of witnesses in the bureau’s investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to send classified emails, according to documents obtained by the government watchdog Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch also discovered among the 218 pages of emails between former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour former FBI Attorney Lisa Page that then FBI General Counsel James Baker had instructed “FBI officials to expedite the release of FBI investigative material to Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall in August 2016. Kendall and the FBI’s top lawyer discussed specifically quickly obtaining the “302” report of the FBI/DOJ interview of Mrs. Clinton.”

Why did the Obama administration ignore reports on Russian meddling?

the Obama administration habitually ignored Russia’s efforts to affect the election, opting instead to target Trump and the Trump campaign, transition team, and administration.

Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee highlights one such example: The attorney general confirmed his understanding that the Obama administration had failed to provide Trump a defensive briefing before January 2017, to inform him of “what the Russians were trying to do and [to] advise him to tell people affiliated with his campaign to be on their guard and vigilant about Russians efforts to undermine public confidence in the election.”
“I can’t fathom why it did not happen, if you’re concerned about interference in the election,” Barr told the senators.
