Shocker: Comey statement on FBI’s Hillary probe was heavily edited (guess who helped)

**Written by Doug Powers The real eye-roller about the James Comey statement about Hillary Clinton in late October of last year wasn't that it was edited, but rather who did the editing. But I'll get to that in a minute. First off, in general, it's been discovered that the then-FBI director's original statement later got more watered down than a mixed drink at a chain restaurant: Newly released documents reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey's draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email pro...

Republicans and Democrats in Congress want a “fix” for the Obama adm...

The Schiff’s hitting the fan

**Written by Doug Powers It's been 13 months since the presidential election, and Hillary Clinton's offer of $20 for each time any Democrat implies that the reason she lost is Russia must still be on the table. Rep. Adam Schiff continues to demonstrate that “Trump colluded with Russia to win the election” is a narrative in desperate search of real-world evidence to back it up, and he's not stopping until somehow willing it into existence: CNN host Jake Tapper ran through the thread of stories ...

Newsweek wants you to meet the Pence family — Serial pet killers

**Written by Doug Powers Pets owned by Mike Pence's family are not unlike the pets of any of the rest of us: Sadly they grow old and eventually die with no surrounding suspicious circumstances.

Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part One

Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part One by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2017 A criminal justice system that operates in the dark is arbitrary, unjust and criminal. In Oklahoma this year, a Kafkaesque set of sealed motions, secret orders and closed-door hearings completely shut out a criminal defendant, his public defenders and the public. A trial judge served as handmaiden for the prosecutors, even failing to notify the defendant and his lawyers of the kangaroo court proceedings unti...

Out: Conyers — In: Er… Conyers?

**Written by Doug Powers After facing multiple harassment allegations and getting caught settling complaints with taxpayer money, Rep. John Conyers has decided he's had enough of “public service” at this time.

ABC News punishes serial journalistic malpractitioner with holiday vacation

**Written by Doug Powers ABC News' Brian Ross's bogus report about Trump/Russia collusion made Dems giddy with excitement while causing the stock market to take a temporary dip.
