I am tired of writing about Donald J. Trump, who has had an awful month. At least since November 8th, when many of his anointed and endorsed candidates either underperformed or lost their elections. But here we go again. Some things need to be said. Again. And probably not for the last time. Sigh. Some […]

There is a direct correlation between the physical security of classified documents and the physical safety of our country’s most important sources of intelligence. When document security is compromised, human sources of intelligence are also compromised. We have several decades of incontrovertible evidence – dead and missing intelligence assets – demonstrating this is true. All […]

27 Boxes

 

Have you heard that 27 boxes of “documents” were accidentally shipped to Mar-a-Lago that were supposed to remain at the National Archives? This is the first time I’ve heard about this — how about you, average Joe and Jane American citizen? Whoopsie-daisy! A boo-boo? A big boo-boo?  Trump shipped back 15 of the boxes but what about those last 12, and what was in the boxes he shipped back that is now concerning? This is confusing. We are hearing about classified this and declassified that, so what’s going on?

If there’s one thing I like, it’s old school. I like real books, real rock-and-roll, popsicles in summer, funny comedies that made me laugh before going to bed, and chalkboards. Remember chalkboards? I used to have to stay behind in grade school to clean the chalkboards with a big wet sponge. “Don’t forget to clean the chalk tray, and make sure there’s fresh chalk for tomorrow’s lesson.”

Well, Glenn Beck pulls out the same chalkboard and offers a lesson. He simplifies a curious but relevant timeline between the — whoopsie-daisy! — accidental shipment of documents from the National Archives, the events that took place after, and the raid on his home, Mar-a-Lago, while Trump was out of town. His former wife had sadly passed away and his family was in New York.

Best Theory Yet on the Mar-A-Lago Raid

 

Andy McCarthy makes a good argument in the NY Post that the raid on Mar-A-Lago was an industrial-scale fishing expedition. For exactly what, I don’t know. I don’t think the DoJ knows either.

The left is terrified by the thought of PDT v2 (or PRDS, but they aren’t nearly as ready to act against him. DeSantis will have to wait, for now.) The Jan. 6 hearings are an embarrassing flop — they won’t stop Trump that way without something new.

Our Dinner With Donald

 

Yes, I did have dinner at Mar-a-Lago, but not exactly with former President Donald Trump. But I will tell you the whole story, and I hope you enjoy it!

We were invited to a very special dinner by Hillsdale College, and when we learned it would be in West Palm Beach, we were very excited. We immediately responded to the invitation in the affirmative and anxiously awaited the date, Jan. 26.

When we arrived precisely at 6 p.m. in our buttons and bows (it was suits and dresses, no tuxedos), we found the location, but at first glance it was just another beautiful Boca Raton business. Mar-a-Lago didn’t appear anywhere on the outside; we wondered if the absence had to do with security. We learned personally the importance of security when we were asked in the driveway by the guard if we had a gun in the car. My husband assured him we had ours properly locked up in a special box in the trunk.

Some employees at a consulting firm where I used to work years ago, told me about a news site called Koenig’s International News. Bill Koenig is a writer and journalist as well as a White House correspondent. I discovered a book he wrote in 2004 called, “Eye to Eye – Facing the Consequences of Dividing […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer Fox News host Neil Cavuto for rebutting President Trump’s claim that “Fox News is no longer working for us” and for reminding politicians and media outlets what the job of the press should be. They also cringe as new Pew poll numbers show 82 percent of Democrats believe abortion should be legal in most or all circumstances – a huge jump from last decade. And Jim has a lot of say after former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell states that she hopes Hurricane Dorian hits Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
