Thank You For Spying

spying

Eric Holder’s Justice Department threatened Fox News Reporter James Rosen as a co-conspirator under the espionage act. Except Holder never really intended to charge Rosen. It was all a pretext to spy on his phone calls and emails to find out who in the government was leaking information to him.

The Obama administration also spied on the phone records of Associated Press journalists.

More Spying

And of course they lied about spying on us too.

This week Joy Behar, of all people, outed James Clapper for spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper claimed Trump should be happy about this because his agent was really spying on Russians.

The Washington Post and New York Times find this explanation perfectly reasonable.

 

 

 

Michael Cohen Swamp Fox

Looks like Michael Cohen could afford to pay Stormy Daniels $130,000. Though, based on past behavior, I wonder if he first tried to sell her access to the president for a future “encounter.”

Swamp Fox

According to The Hill he tried to hit up the Qatari government for a cool million in exchange for access. Also on Cohen’s client access list were Novartis and ATT.

It’s the way of the swamp. But not illegal.

President Obama Legacy

Aside from ObamaCare, most of President Obama’s legacy was achieved through executive fiat.

Except for the Nobel Peace Prize. And even the guy responsible for that has had second thoughts.

The Iran Nuclear deal would have had staying power as a treaty with two thirds U.S. Senate approval. But Obama couldn’t get that. So he settled for the authority of a narrative by aspiring novelist Ben Rhodes.

Here’s Dan Henninger in the WSJ:

The Iran nuclear deal is just that—a deal Mr. Obama did with the mullahs, Russia, Germany, France, the U.K. and China, with no formal instrument of ratification.

And the same goes for the Paris Climate Accord:

The Paris climate agreement is an “accord” with so little domestic support that even some Democrats would have voted “no” if Mr. Obama had submitted it to the Senate for approval.

President Obama Legacy

Not that Trump has any better luck getting the approval of Congress. But then, he doesn’t need it. He’s unraveling the Obama Legacy with the same pen and phone Obama used to create it.

 

 

White House Correspondents Nerd Prom

Hardened reporters cringed at Michelle Wolf’s comedy routine at the White House Correspondents dinner. She hit a new low when she played the light side of abortion for laughs. She didn’t get many.

Nerd Prom

And I haven’t seen anyone ridicule women the way Wolf attacked Sarah Huckabee Sanders since um … well, maybe The Donald.

Threat to American Democracy

Here’s what William McGurn has to say in the WSJ about the strange reasoning of some anti-Trump elites:

Threat to American Democracy

The people aren’t stupid. The 63 million Americans who voted for Mr. Trump—some as an unappealing but better alternative to Mrs. Clinton, but many with gusto—recognize that what is going on here is a concerted effort to overturn the results of a legitimate presidential election. Is it really unreasonable to ask whether this might be as much of a threat to American democracy as anything Mr. Trump has said or done?
