Bias: Google Maps Renames Trump Tower ‘Dump Tower’

The bias of liberal media, including major tech firms Google, Apple, Yahoo and others is beyond the pale.

Now it’s been revealed that Google Maps changed the name of Trump Tower to ‘Dump Tower’, and they were caught in the act.

Here’s more from the NY Post:

Somebody’s favorite skyscraper was mysteriously rebranded Saturday night.
For at least nine hours, the name of Donald Trump’s prize prop­erty at Fifth Avenue and 56th changed on Google Maps from “Trump Tower” to “Dump Tower.”
At around 11 p.m., it changed back to “Trump,” only to become “Dump” again early Sunday morning.
Later no name was displayed.
Google released a statement saying, “some inappropriate names were surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologize for any offense this may have caused. Our teams immediately took action and have fixed the issue.”
A Trump spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment.

Rep. Darrell Issa: Trump May Still Prosecute Hillary

Just days ago, Kellyanne Conway made it clear that President-elect Donald Trump has no intention of pursuing legal action against Hillary Clinton despite his campaign pledge.

But now a lead House prosecutor says otherwise. According to Rep. Darrel Issa, Trump is still open to keeping his promise.

Here’s more from Newsmax:

President-elect Donald Trump said he doesn’t want to hurt his former Democratic rival Hillary Clinton any more, but hasn’t declared her innocent, so she could still be prosecuted over her use of a private email server or other possible wrongdoing, Rep. Darrell Issa said Friday.

Nothing Trump has said would stop Jeff Sessions, if confirmed as attorney general, from reopening the case against Clinton and prosecuting her, Issa explained.

“I think it’s important that the president do essentially what he does, which is get out of the business of prosecuting, but at the same time he’s appointed or proposed appointing an attorney general who has a long record of doing his job,” Issa, a California Republican and a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends,” doubling down on comments he made on the matter earlier this week.

Sessions, along with the FBI and other investigatory organizations, “need to do their job,” Issa said Friday, and he believes with Trump in office, that will happen.

“I think that’s where the balance of the next president is going to come, in reestablishing the independence of the Department of Justice,” said Issa, and he thinks Congress will “certainly push” for further investigation or prosecution of the former Secretary of State.

Meanwhile, Issa said, he thinks Trump will stand back and let the Department of Justice do its job.

“I think you are going to find a president who says let them do their job and stays out of it,” said Issa. “You know, he hasn’t said she’s innocent. That’s a decision that needs to be made by the professionals.”

That would be unlike President Barack Obama, said Issa, accusing the president of “trying to essentially jury tamper” the investigation by saying “there isn’t a smidgen of evidence” against Clinton.

ESPN Finally Admits Its Bias Against Conservatives

For years ESPN has grown increasingly anti-conservative despite the glaring political affiliation of its conservative viewers.

But so far they’ve refused to admit it…until now.

Read more from ESPN:

ESPN has been hemorrhaging viewers because of its outspoken politics. From giving Caitlyn Jenner a heroism award to stumping for Black Lives Matter, from pushing gun control to praising Kaepernick’s heroism, from firing Curt Schilling for expressing anti-radical Islam sentiments to threatening Chris Broussard for taking a religious view of homosexuality while doing nothing about Kevin Blackistone for calling the national anthem a “war anthem,” ESPN has become – as I’ve long said – MSNBC with footballs.

Now, ESPN’s public editor is admitting that the network has a problem. As Newsbusters reports, Jim Brady admitted, “One notion that virtually everyone I spoke to at ESPN dismisses is what some have perceived as unequal treatment of conservatives who make controversial statements vs. liberals who do the same.” He added:

ESPN is far from immune from the political fever that has afflicted so much of the country over the past year. Internally, there’s a feeling among many staffers — both liberal and conservative — that the company’s perceived move leftward has had a stifling effect on discourse inside the company and has affected its public-facing product. Consumers have sensed that same leftward movement, alienating some…. For most of its history, ESPN was viewed relatively apolitically. Its core focus was — and remains today, of course — sports. Although the nature of sports meant an occasional detour into politics and culture was inevitable, there wasn’t much chatter about an overall perceived political bias. If there was any tension internally, it didn’t manifest itself publicly.

Outrage: Reporter Encourages Assassination Via Twitter

Liberals continue to go nuts after Donald Trumps election. They’ve rioted, called the abolition of the Electoral College, circulate petition for recall and threatened secession.

But this tweet by a reporter is a new low.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller:

The Telegraph’s train columnist Monisha Rajesh expressed a desire that Donald Trump be assassinated in a tweet Nov. 8.

A Financial Times writer Mark C.O’Flaherty tweeted at Rajesh, “I have no words…always wondered when a Nazi-scale atrocity would next arise. here it is…Here it is…”

Rajesh replied, “it’s about time for a presidential assassination.”

Rajesh subsequently made her account private, and so did O’Flaherty. Rajesh’s account has since been deleted. The Telegraph did not respond immediately to a press inquiry about whether it will fire Rajesh.

Revealed: Donald Trump’s List for Potential Cabinet Members

Now that Donald Trump is officially the President-Elect, all eyes are on who he’ll surround himself with in his cabinet picks.

After all, personnel is policy and he’ll need to make some strong selections to convince voters that he really wants to serve as president.

And now a list of potential cabinet members is beginning to surface.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

Chief of staff
According to CBS News, that spot could go to Priebus. The RNC chairman is responsible for running the get-out-the-vote operation that aided the Trump campaign in securing the White House. Asked about the possibility by NBC, Priebus said, “I hadn’t thought about it.”

Secretary of state
This spot, once held by Trump’s Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, may go to Gingrich or Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, who is currently the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Secretary of defense
Sessions, a close advisor to Trump, is a front-runner for this slot. The Alabama senator was one of the billionaire businessman’s earliest congressional supporters and helped lead the charge for his controversial immigration proposals.

Other considerations, according to Politico, include former National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley, former Missouri Sen. Jim Talent and retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, though he would need a waiver from Congress to assume the role of secretary of defense, given current law mandates retired military officers take a seven-year hiatus before assuming control of the Pentagon as a civilian.

Obama Hints at a Pardon for Hillary Before Inauguration

Hillary was resoundingly rejected on Tuesday night, and it may spell the end of the Clinton political machine. And the only thing waiting for her now is a possible indictment from the Trump DOJ.

But she could slip once again from the clutches of justice just as she has for over thirty years… that is President Obama follows through with his hint of a pardon.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner:

White House spokesman Josh Earnest declined to say Wednesday if President Obama would consider issuing a blanket pardon for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose charitable foundation is reportedly being investigated by FBI field offices for evidence of corruption, in order to spare her further investigation under incoming President Donald Trump.

“As you know, the president has offered clemency to a substantial number of Americans who were previously serving time in federal prisons, and we didn’t talk in advance about the president’s plans to offer clemency to any of those individuals,” Earnest told reporters on Wednesday upon being asked about Donald Trump’s threat in the final presidential debate to jail Clinton if he made it to the Oval Office.

“We don’t talk about the president’s thinking… with respect to any particular cases that may apply to any pardons or commutations,” Earnest said when asked about Clinton’s case.

Earnest also seemed to nudge Trump away from the idea of pressing for charges against Clinton once he takes office in January.

FBI Agents Drop Bomb on Director Comey

Just when we thought the FBI’s botched investigation of Hillary’s email server couldn’t get worse, internal agents drop a bomb on Director Comey saying he ‘stood in the way’ of the investigation.

Over the weekend Comey reiterated his conclusion that the FBI had no intention of recommending an indictment to the Department of Justice. But is there evidence that Comey next intended to seek a real investigation?

Here’s more from Daily Caller:

FBI agents say the bureau is alarmed over Director James Comey deciding not to suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information.

According to an interview transcript given to The Daily Caller, provided by an intermediary who spoke to two federal agents with the bureau last Friday, agents are frustrated by Comey’s leadership.

“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have convened but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”

The agent was also surprised that the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation.

“We didn’t search their house. We always search the house. The search should not just have been for private electronics, which contained classified material, but even for printouts of such material,” he said.

“There should have been a complete search of their residence,” the agent pointed out. “That the FBI did not seize devices is unbelievable. The FBI even seizes devices that have been set on fire.”

Another special agent for the bureau that worked counter-terrorism and criminal cases said he is offended by Comey’s saying: “we” and “I’ve been an investigator.”

Homeland Security Official on Hillary: It’s Treason

News broke just day ago that not one but FIVE foreign intelligence agencies had hacked Hillary emails on her home-baked server.

And that new revelation has a House member on Homeland Security livid.

Here’s more form IJT:

After the story broke last week that “at least five foreign intelligence agencies were able to hack into the Clinton email server,” Michael McCaul — chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee — stopped by “Fox & Friends” to give his assessment.

Bottom line: McCaul accused the Democrat presidential nominee of treason.

“Now we find out, and James Comey told me previously that it is very likely foreign adversary nations got into her private server. This is why you have security protocols to protect classified information.

She exposed it to our enemies and now, Steve, our adversaries have this very sensitive information that not only jeopardizes her and national security at home, but the men and women serving overseas.

This is, in my opinion quite frankly, it’s treason.”

Hillary Allowed Her Maid To Print Out Classified Files?

Another day, another detail in the ongoing scandal over Hillary’s complete disregard for national security.

And this one will almost certainly guarantee impeachment of President Hillary.

Here’s more from the New York Post:

As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material.

In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.

Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets, further opening the Democratic presidential nominee to criticism that she played fast and loose with national security.

Clinton would first receive highly sensitive e-mails from top aides at the State Department and then request that they, in turn, forward the messages and any attached documents to Santos to print out for her at the home.

Among other things, Clinton requested Santos print out drafts of her speeches, confidential memos and “call sheets” — background information and talking points prepared for the secretary of state in advance of a phone call with a foreign head of state.

“Pls ask Marina to print for me in am,” Clinton e-mailed top aide Huma Abedin regarding a redacted 2011 message marked sensitive but unclassified.

In a classified 2012 e-mail dealing with the new president of Malawi, another Clinton aide, Monica Hanley, advised Clinton, “We can ask Marina to print this.”

“Revisions to the Iran points” was the subject line of a classified April 2012 e-mail to Clinton from Hanley. In it, the text reads, “Marina is trying to print for you.”

Both classified e-mails were marked “confidential,” the tier below “secret” or “top secret.”
