Mueller’s Flynn Memo Disappoints the Left

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “investigation” is the gift that keeps on giving this season…to Donald Trump. Bereft of anything even approaching the possibility of collusion with Russia, Mueller & Friend continue to harangue Trump’s former colleagues in hopes of a forced error that might qualify as worthy of condemnation. As one columnist pointed out recently, perhaps the worst Trump and company are guilty of is “sleaze,” but unfortunately for the left, “sleaze” isn’t illegal. So, this week, Mueller has dropped his report on Michael Flynn, which once again demonstrates that there’s not a lot of “there there,” and that this investigation continues to burn taxpayer dollars with nothing to show for it. At the end of the day, Trump may be the only winner, and ahead of the 2020 race, voters may punish Democrats for fanning the flames.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s memo on former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn left members of the so-called “resistance” disappointed that the retired three star Army general would likely not face any jail time, and no collusion was detailed.

Leading up to its release, resisters were giddy over the idea the man who led a “Lock her up!” chant on the campaign trail would find himself behind bars. Mueller’s memo instead praised him for his substantial cooperation and “exemplary” service in uniform, leaving some angry.

Many Democrats took to Twitter to convey their unfulfilled desire for vengeance against Flynn, who was once appointed by former President Barack Obama to lead the Defense Intelligence Agency.

Bill and Hillary About to Go Away Forever

Are Christmas wishes across the United States about to come true? The Daily Wire’s Joseph Curl thinks so. From the plummeting ticket prices for their speaking tour to the end of the media lovefest with the Clintons to 2020, it looks like Team Clinton may be in for a big disappointment in the new year. Curl predicts the long media love affair with Bill and Hill may finally be coming to an ignoble end. Couple that with the fact that the Clinton Foundation is all but dead and that as many as two dozen Democrats may be vying for president in 2020 portends the final demise of Hillary’s political prospects. Merry Christmas!

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Yes, people, the day is coming, and it’s coming fast: We’re almost done for good with Bill and Hillary Clinton.

How can we be sure, you ask? Here’s how: Tickets to see them live and hear them blab about their lives are selling for the cost of a Big Mac meal at McDonald’s.

Not enough proof? Well, there’s this, too: New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd is finally sick of them.

The former first couple opened a 13-city speaking tour late last month with a premiere event in Toronto (why they think anyone in Canada wants to hear them whine about Hillary’s crushing defeat in the 2016 presidential election is anybody’s guess). They pulled just 3,000 people to an arena that seats 19,000.

Then they took their road show, “An Evening With the Clintons,” to Montreal, but they fared little better (and not for lack of trying: In a case of classic Clinton pandering, each said that Canada was superior to America).

Clinton Tour Prices Plummet

Tickets for the Bill and Hillary Clinton road show across the U.S. and Canada are unsurprisingly NOT in high demand with ticket prices plummeting to as low as $7. While those may be nosebleed seats – some are still priced at $1,062 – it’s worth comparing with how the tour tickets to hear former first lady Michelle Obama priced at $300-$2,500 are selling. The conclusion is clear that Hillary isn’t in much demand anymore. That ought to put a damper on any 2020 thoughts of grandeur.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Ticket prices to see former President Bill Clinton and Hillary speak have gone as low as $7 in some locations– and the seats are still empty.
Former President Bill Clinton and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have been touring the U.S. and Canada for months, with dates stretching into mid-2019. Unfortunately for the Clintons, people seem to be quickly losing interest in entertaining their nostalgia and opinions on the current state of the nation.

Tickets currently range from $7 to $1,062, depending on the seating quality. Scalpers are trying to get as much as $500 for a ticket, but considering the ticket sales even at a discount, it may be a risky wager to find someone desperate enough to pay who is simultaneously unaware of how cheap the tickets are going for.

Corsi Files Criminal Complaint Against Mueller

Conservative author Jerome Corsi has filed a “criminal and ethics complaint” against Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, arguing that Mueller and his team are attempting to bully him into giving “false testimony” against President Trump. Specifically, Corsi reveals they’ve asked him to confirm that he acted as a liaison between Roger Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and the 2016 Trump campaign as part of a conspiracy to release hacked Democratic National Committee emails. In the 78-page document, Corsi charges that Mueller is acting as part of a “slow-motion coup against the president.” In other words, more statement of the obvious.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Conservative author Jerome Corsi on Monday filed a “criminal and ethics complaint” against Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, accusing investigators of trying to bully him into giving “false testimony” against President Trump.

The complaint, which Corsi had threatened for days, is the latest escalation between Mueller’s team and its investigation targets.

The 78-page document, asserting the existence of a “slow-motion coup against the president,” was filed to a range of top law enforcement officials including Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, D.C.’s U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu and the Bar Disciplinary Counsel.

“Dr. Corsi has been criminally threatened and coerced to tell a lie and call it the truth,” the complaint states.

Corsi, who wrote the anti-President Obama book “The Obama Nation” and is connected with political operative Roger Stone, has claimed for the past week that he was being improperly pressured by Mueller’s team to strike a plea deal which he now says he won’t sign.

AOC Compares Her Midterms Victory to Moon Landing, Civil Rights

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is like America’s very own Kim Kardashian of Capitol Hill between the fawning media and her outrageous (and abjectly ignorant) statements on social media, and that’s probably not giving Kardashian enough credit. The Left’s favorite celebrity politico had the audacity to compare her midterms victory to landing on the moon and the civil rights movement during an engagement with the Sunshine Movement. “We went to the moon. We electrified the nation,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We digged deep, and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could…That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year.” Digged?

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Friday put her Election Day victory and other progressive Democrats’ wins on the same level as other watershed moments in U.S. history, including the signing of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and the moon landing.

While speaking at a Sunshine Movement press conference in Washington Friday morning, Ocasio-Cortez boasted about her achievement while asking House Democrats to create a select committee for a “Green New Deal” in the next Congress.

“This is not just about a clean new deal. This is about a new deal for the United States of America,” the incoming congresswoman said. “Because in every moment when our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss and we did not know if we would be capable of saving ourselves, we have. We’ve done it. We’ve dug deep and we’ve done what we thought was impossible.”

Sexual Misconduct Allegations Spur Resignation of CA Dem Party Chair

California Democratic Party chair Eric Bauman – a kingmaker in the Golden State’s politics – resigned Thursday in the wake of several claims of sexual misconduct made against him. According to the Los Angeles Times, 10 party staff members and political activists claimed Bulgar made vulgar sexual comments as well as unwanted advances and acts of intimidation at party events and professional settings. In a statement to the LA Times, Bauman said, “I have made the realization that in order for those to whom I may have caused pain and who need to heal, for my own health, and in the best interest of the party that I love and to which I have dedicated myself for more than 25 years, it is in everyone’s best interest for me to resign my position as chair of the California Democratic Party.” Where’s Kamala Harris?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Thursday. the head of the California Democratic Party resigned after there were multiple claims of sexual misconduct made against him. Eric Bauman released a statement to the Los Angeles Times that said, “I have made the realization that in order for those to whom I may have caused pain and who need to heal, for my own health, and in the best interest of the party that I love and to which I have dedicated myself for more than 25 years, it is in everyone’s best interest for me to resign my position as chair of the California Democratic Party.”

According to The Sacramento Bee, “One of Bauman’s deputies, Daraka Larimore-Hall, initiated the process to remove him last week after hearing from individuals who said Bauman had sexually harassed and assaulted them at party events. By Monday, the party had launched an investigation into the complaints and Bauman took a leave of absence.”

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported that 10 party staff members and political activists reported Bauman had made vulgar sexual comments and participated in unwanted touching or physical intimidation in professional settings.

FBI Raids Home of Recognized Clinton Whistleblower

In what is being dubbed a case of “serious misconduct” and “outrageous disregard of the law,” the FBI raided the home of Department of Justice whistleblower and former FBI contractor Dennis Nathan Cain, who had previously privately transmitted Clinton Foundation-Uranium One documents to the Justice Department’s inspector general and congressional intelligence committees. Why? Because a federal magistrate out of Baltimore signed off on a writ to raid Cain’s home for more than six hours under the excuse of his alleged possession of stolen federal property despite Cain’s status as “a recognized protected whistleblower under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act.” Notably, the raid occurred the day before U.S. Attorney John Huber with the DOJ and FBI was called to testify about Clinton Foundation corruption before Congress, something that was supposed to have been thoroughly investigated by none other than Special Counsel Robert Mueller. So the obvious question is this: Is the DOJ being used by Obama cronies to silence a Hillary whistleblower?

Here’s more from PJ Media…

The FBI is being accused of “serious misconduct” and “outrageous disregard of the law” after raiding the home of a recognized Department of Justice whistleblower earlier this month, Richard Pollock of The Daily Caller News Foundation reported in a shocking exclusive Thursday night.

The raid happened after former FBI contractor Dennis Nathan Cain privately transmitted documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to the Justice Department’s inspector general and the Senate and House intelligence committees, according to his attorney.

The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, a document reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation alleges.

Clintons Want America to be More Like Canada

The Clinton Dream Team is taking empty stadiums across our northern neighbor by whirlwind, bashing President Donald Trump and now in the latest new low arguing that America should be more like…Canada. “Canada has done such a good job of both managing its contemporary diversity, and it has a very interesting immigration system,” remarked Slick Willy. You know because Canada is such a dynamic player on the world stage. Then Queen Hillary took her turn extolling Canada’s virtues of “having one of the most dynamic economies for building the middle class of any place in the world,” but Canada ranks No. 10 in annual gross domestic product, and the U.S. is No. 1. Virtually all of Canada’s GDP depends on exports and trade with the US.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

To Bill and Hillary Clinton, Canada is just better than America.

At least when they’re in country making bank, anyway.

The former president and his wife, who was Secretary of State during Barack Obama’s administration, dropped in to Montreal on their second stop of their 13-city speaking tour across North America.

“Canada has done such a good job of both managing its contemporary diversity and it has a very interesting immigration system,” Bill said, according to the Montreal Gazette.

“And yet it’s still Canada. And I just think that you can model the idea that you can become more diverse and still keep your culture and your values. It’s really very good for a modern economy. The United States will have to return to that if it expects to play a positive role in the future.”

Obama Claims Credit for Record U.S. Oil Production

Former President Barack Hussein Obama desperately claimed sole responsibility for America’s record oil and gas production. While leaning back in his chair, Obama told a crowd at Rice University’s Baker Institute, “That was me, people.” No, we’re not kidding. He bragged: And that whole, suddenly America’s like, the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas – that was me, people…” Yes, Obama actually uttered those words. Somehow he’s conveniently forgotten that he tried desperately to regulate fracking, insisted on not approving the Keystone Pipeline from Canada, banned drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, and refused to allow exportation of liquid natural gas. Yep, our oil boom was all Obama’s work, folks. Thanks so much, Barry!

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Tuesday night, former President Barack Obama made a claim that was so transparently false and self-aggrandizing that it staggers the imagination just to think of the arrogance and audacity of the man. Speaking before a crowd at Rice University’s Baker Institute, which was celebrating its 25th anniversary, Obama claimed he was responsible for America’s surge to become the top oil and gas producer in the world, saying, “That was me, people.”

Leaning back in his chair, Obama pontificated:

I was extraordinarily proud of the Paris Accords because, look, I know, I know we’re an oil country and we need American energy, and by the way American energy production.You wouldn’t always know it, but it went up every year I was president. And that whole, suddenly America’s like, the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people, I just wanted you to … so … so … it’s a little like sometimes you go to Wall Street and folks’ll be grumbling about anti-business and I said, “Have you checked where your stocks were when I came into office, where they are now?

Dems: Climate Change “Not Debatable”

With the newly released 1,656-page National Climate Assessment in hand, Democrats are throwing down the gauntlet in their championing of “climate change” (aka global warming) with their new House majority in January. The report purportedly demonstrates that “many lines of independent evidence demonstrate that the rapid warming of the past half-century is due primarily to human activities,” and Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) is now claiming, “Climate change is not debatable, and no region of our country and no sector of our economy will be spared.” He continued: “While the Trump administration and congressional Republicans continue to deny that climate change exists, Democrats will use our new House Majority to take aggressive action to reduce climate pollution and help communities build their resilience to the impacts of climate change.” So a bunch of bureaucrats got together and spent a bunch of taxpayer dollars to argue what they had already been arguing: raise taxes. Funny how that works.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

WASHINGTON — Democrats vowed that they’ll use their new House majority next year to force action on climate change in the wake of a new report from 13 federal agencies that paints a bleak picture of the current and expected effects of global warming.

The National Climate Assessment released Friday is an interagency effort including more than 300 experts guided by a 60-member federal advisory committee. The report was then subjected to peer review and studied by federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of Sciences.

“Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present,” began the report’s introduction. “…This National Climate Assessment concludes that the evidence of human-induced climate change continues to strengthen and that impacts are increasing across the country. Americans are noticing changes all around them. Summers are longer and hotter, and extended periods of unusual heat last longer than any living American has ever experienced. Winters are generally shorter and warmer. Rain comes in heavier downpours.”
