Fox News Eric Bolling – Next Up Victim or Smarmy Dirtbag

**UPDATE**

Eric Bolling has been suspended from Fox News – but that still doesn’t make him guilty. Of course, it doesn’t mean he’s innocent either.

So the leftist hit squad is after another of the Fox News on-air stars. This time it’s Eric Bolling. Why are they doing it? At first blush one would simply conclude, and rightly so, that Bolling is an Ever-Trumper. No – not a never-Trumper – a died-in-the-wool Trump supporter. He is also one of the more popular Fox News stars. That’s enough to put him the left’s hit-list.

And after they were able to successfully oust big-gun Bill O’Reilly, I believe they have the confident to think they can take down virtually anyone.

But is the Huffington Post report that Eric Bolling texted a picture of what they describe as “male genitalia” just another hit piece, like the one done on Bill O’Reilly, to attempt to knock Fox down further? Or is the HuffPo piece just investigative journalism?

Okay, you can stop laughing. I know – actual investigative journalism went the way of the Dodo decades ago it seems. Particularly regarding leftist journalists (redundancy alert) “investigating” anyone left of center. Now it’s just one “gotcha” piece after another. But I suppose when you have exactly zero positive news coming out of your own camp, what else is there left for them to do.

Not that it matters, and it’s gross either way, but HuffPo doesn’t state that its Bolling’s junk – just that the text messages sent were of “male genitalia.” I can’t really even believe I’m writing about this. read more

The Rise of Ransomware

Targets of ransomware attacks shelled out a combined $25 million in ransoms over the last two years alone.

Researchers at Google, Chainalysis, UC San Diego, and the NYU Tandon School of Engineering came to the astounding total by following the Bitcoin transactions the victims paid their hackers through the blockchain, then comparing them against known samples to create a comprehensive overview of the ransomware ecosystem.

The study tracked 34 separate families hit by ransomware attacks and revealed that just a few strains of malicious software were responsible for the majority of the attacks and profits.  read more

Massive Democrat Coverup Finally Unearthed

from Onan Coca at Constitution.com:

Former Democrat National Committee chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) may be in a world of trouble.

Her former IT team has long been under suspicion for a series of very serious crimes. However, Schultz ran interference for her IT team for months and even fought to keep investigators from gathering evidence of their crimes.

When confronted on her behavior Schultz dissembled and continued to make it harder for everyone to do their jobs. read more

Comey and Hillary – Doppelgangers of Crime

from IBD:

Mystery Solved: Now We Know Why Comey Did Nothing About Hillary

No wonder former FBI Director James Comey refused to press charges last summer against Hillary Clinton for her egregious security breaches: It turns out, he may have been guilty of the same thing.

As the inside-the-beltway political publication The Hill reported, more than half of the memos FBI Director James Comey wrote after having spoken to President Trump about the Russia investigation contained classified information. The Hill cites as its sources “officials familiar with the documents.”

Not surprisingly, perhaps, Trump on Monday morning tweeted out an angry response: “James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!”

He may be onto something there. read more

Can We Keep Our Eyes on the Prize

Update: I neglected to mention another option to avoiding doing the hard things like a full repeal of ObamaCare. A weak-kneed roll-out of ObamaCare-lite. Although there hasn’t been time yet to dissect the new proposal, you can bet it doesn’t resemble anything they have been promising us. I can’t wait to hear the tough-talking sales pitch of the watered down bill.

What has everyone in politics, every cable news outlet, every talk radio program been discussing since Friday? Well, it’s not ObamaCare, cutting taxes, or really any of Trump’s big agenda items. Of course, it’s wiretapping, meetings with Russians and tweeting.

For now four solid days we have been pummeled with wiretapping scandal stories. If it’s not specifically about wiretapping, it’s about Jeff Sessions or others meeting, or not meeting with the Ruskies. Oh, and also the salaciously commented on photo of Kelly Ann Conway perched on the couch in the Oval Office.

That’s four days the administration and those on Capital Hill have not been thinking of or acting on the campaign promises that were made to us – a full repeal of ObamaCare – cutting taxes and confirming the next supreme Court justice, etc., etc.

This one story has sucked all the oxygen out of the room. On Monday, Rush Limbaugh spent virtually his entire show – three full hours harping on the feud between Trump and the democrats and zero time on anything else. I don’t listen to Hannity anymore, but I’ll bet he did the same. read more

Mark Levin Presents Evidence of Obama Wiretapping

We’ve always known those in the Obama administration were dirty. I, as have many others have chronicled offense after offense Obama and his minions have perpetrated on political opponents, journalists and private citizens.

But now, we hope, it may be finally catching up to him and them. Yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Mark Levin put forth no less than eight pieces of evidence of the Obama administration attempt to derail the Trump campaign and to derail his presidency. As Levin put it – “the evidence is about the Obama administration spying.”

Mark says it’s not a question of whether there was spying, “we know they did..” The question is “who did they spy on, the extent of the spying.”

Watch Mark make his case: read more

Podcast – The Dirty Dems vs Jeff Sessions – Stop Listening to Ivanka

The democrats, led by the despicable Chuckie Schumer are pulling out all the stops, doing everything they can to disrupt President Trump, his Cabinet and his agenda. Senate Minority Leader Schumer has called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign – and anything less will be unacceptable to him and the rest of radicals in the party – which is all of them. They need to be stopped.

President Trump would be wise to stop listening to his daughter Ivanka. She is battling with Senior Adviser Steve Bannon over global warming. Bannon wants Trump to dump the Paris Climate agreement, while Ivanka and her hubby Jared Kushner want daddy to drop his opposition to the agreement. read more

Podcast – A Look Back at the Obama Years

In this historic podcast – historic in that it is the final podcast of the Obama presidency – we take a stroll down memory lane with the Fiscal Times. They recall how fabulous Obama was and that, and I quote, there were “no major scandals” during his eight years.

Oh really – not one. The folks at the Fiscal Times must have severe memory loss, because it took me all of about 15 minutes to come up with a list of a couple of dozen scandals involving Obama and his minions.

Let’s take a jog down memory lane, shall we.

I also briefly touch upon Obama’s wild shift on Cuban immigration – probably because most of them vote Republican. read more

Russia Did NOT Provide Clinton Emails

This claim is unsubstantiated as yet.

from: Alana Goodman In Washington, Dc For Dailymail.com

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails – they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for ‘disgusted’ Democratic whistleblowers

  • Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and associate of Julian Assange, told the Dailymail.com  he flew to Washington, D.C. for emails
  • He claims he had a clandestine hand-off in a wooded area near American University with one of the email sources 
  • The leakers’ motivation was ‘disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the  ’tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders’
  • Murray says: ‘The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks’
  • ‘Regardless of whether the Russians hacked into the DNC, the documents Wikileaks published did not come from that,’ Murray insists
  • Murray is a controversial figure who was relieved of his post as British ambassador amid allegations of misconduct but is close to Wikileaks

Obama to Hillary – Under the Bus You Go

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are standing on a street corner waiting for a bus. As the bus approaches, Obama grabs Hillary and tosses her out on to the street, where she is then run over by the oncoming bus.

Of course this would never happen – literally. Neither Obama nor Clinton would ever be caught dead on a bus. Under it – yes, but not in one.

Naturally I’m kidding about Barack tossing Hillary under the bus. He has not the strength to do so. Again – kidding. These are the jokes. I’m here all night.

But seriously – it does appear that Obama has figuratively thrown her highness under the bus, again, for her ever-growing email scandal. I say again, for this isn’t the first time the president has done so. read more
