Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. WSJ: James Comey and Robert Mueller Imperil the Rule of Law

 

There is an excellent analysis in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal illustrating in a chillingly frightening way how the enormously conflicted Comey and Mueller are endangering the American Rule of Law. The author compares it to the insane chase after Scooter Libby in the Valerie Plame case, when the actual blameworthy person had been identified months before the investigation was even opened.

Likewise, there is a frantic search by Mueller and his pack of Obama-Clinton sycophants to find something, anything, on President Trump, considering every business dealing he ever had or any friend of his ever had, or anything any member of his family ever did. Not to mention Comey’s probably-criminal usurpation of the proper role of the Lynch “Justice” Department in declaring, with no legal authority to do so, Madame Secretary’s “innocence” in the e-mail scandal. The author shows a clear pattern of favoring Democrat targets over Republicans.

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Trump’s Greatest Achievement

 

Programming note. On this week’s upcoming Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast, Jessica Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, my former co-author and current friend will tell us about the status of immigration enforcement in America and how things look now compared to one year ago. The podcast will be posted Tuesday evening. Listen in! (Got a question to ask Jessica? Leave a comment below).

The most positive consequence of the Trump Administration so far – and it hasn’t been nearly as positive as it could be – is the widespread reevaluation of illegal immigration, its impact on our economy and culture, and the question of how (and not if) the laws of the nation should be best enforced.

They also sigh as tensions mount between President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions after Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation. […]

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Trump Gets Tapped

 

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for March 7, 2017, it’s the Trump Gets Tapped edition of the show. This week, we are brought to you by Casper mattresses: with over twenty thousand reviews and over 4.8 out of 5 stars, it is quickly becoming the internet’s favorite mattress. Go to casper.com/Harvard for your special offer. And we are brought to you by SimpliSafe. Protect your home the smart, wireless way with no long term contract using SimpliSafe’s home security system.

Our first topic this week is – mon dieu! – a tweet from Trump! Will it ever end?! Trump attacks Obama (wait! Isn’t he gone already?). Trump says that Obama ordered during the campaign that Trump’s phone be tapped. With one or two shades of nuance, this is what the BBC and the New York Times already reported, viz., that requests were made to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Courts for an electronic surveillance order of the Trump campaign. The left went ballistic. Mika Brzezinski broke into tears. Chuck Schumer said “aha!” The President did the two-step non-denial denial.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss a good day for judicial conservatives as Neil Gorsuch distances himself from some of Trump’s tweets on the judiciary, the Senate confirms Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General and Sen. Tim Scott exposes the racist messages he got for supporting Sessions. They also cringe as Tucker Carlson suggests Elizabeth Warren would have defeated Donald Trump.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleased to see the Democrats’ strategy against Jeff Sessions accomplish nothing – and they point out why the strategy was so stupid. They also groan as the Obama administration’s self-congratulations tour continues with Obama giving Joe Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom. And they react to Sen. Kamala Harris grilling CIA director nominee Mike Pompeo about climate change, while Jim explains the “sure, whatever” strategy he would employ at a confirmation hearing.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of Trump protesters arguing about who is more oppressed. They also rip New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker for testifying against the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. The Trump Party Podcast

 

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast for November 22, 2016, It’s the Trump Party edition of the program, brought to you by SimpliSafe as well as Donors Trust. This week on the podcast we discuss the conflict of interest landmines awaiting Team Trump described recently by Republican Commentator David Frum. How will it be possible for President Trump to avoid getting in trouble when legislation, executive orders and rolling out of bed will have consequences for his personal financial empire? For the Democrats (and Republicans) who will be scheming to get rid of him as soon as possible won’t this be a target rich environment?

Then we’ll talk about Vice-President Elect Mike Pence’s trip to the theater with his daughter to see the big, Tony-award winning hit Hamilton and the booing and dissing that he endured just to acquire a little culture with his kid (other than that Mr. Pence, how did you enjoy the play?). Was that an unbelievable ego trip by the Hamilton cast and crew members or what?!?
