A disgruntled employee fails to make the case against his old boss

During Thursday’s showdown Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, fired FBI Director James B. Comey came across as less as a fearless crusader for the truth and more as a disgruntled employee upset with the boss who unceremoniously let him go.

He deliberately shared his memos about his talks with President Trump with his friend Daniel Richman, a former FBI agent and Columbia Law School professor, explicitly hoping it would lead to the appointment of a special counsel, a ploy that succeeded brilliantly. The decision to share the sensitive memos is troubling because of Mr. Comey’s “unauthorized disclosure of privileged communications,” as Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, was quick to point out.

Strangely, Mr. Comey decided not to share that same memo with Attorney General Jeff Sessions or the acting deputy attorney general, holding his information close while waiting for the right moment to strike. He felt “defamed” by the Trump administration and took direct action against the president.

This was Mr. Comey’s personal revenge after losing his job.

New Orleans Mayor Hypes His Cultural Cleansing

Political correctness didn’t succeed as well as the Left had hoped it would because PC conflicts with the concept “two sides to every story.” National media only presents the side that bolsters its socio/poltical agenda, and it seems to think its opinions are widely accepted. But polls indicate that the public’s trust in media has sunk to one of its lowest levels. Alternative news sites are presenting the other side of the story and more people seek second opinions on news reports.

Currently, we are experiencing a serious “demographic, ideological, and cultural” divide in our nation. The Left thought the public had blithely accepted its “modernized”, one-sided revisionist history and so it didn’t expect the widespread opposition to the Confederate monument removals in New Orleans. The public apparently knows more about American history than the Left realizes.

It’s James Comey Day in Washington DC–

The unpredictable former FBI Director testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Comey revealed many things during his public testimony. He told the Senate Intel Committee on Thursday that he asked a friend of his to leak to a memo he kept regarding his conversation with President Trump to the press.
James Comey even admitted that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch attempted to suppress/reframe the investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server. AG Lynch purportedly directed Comey to immediately stop referring to the Hillary probe as an “investigation” or a “probe” and, instead, refer to it as a much more gentle “matter”.

BOOM! Trump Attorney Kasowitz Catches Comey in Lie While Under Oath

Trump Attorney Mark Kasowitz told reporters today at the Washington Press Club that James Comey lied during testimony while under oath!


FALSELY claimed he leaked private conversations because of Trump’s tweet — which wasn’t published until the following day after the leak!
Kasowitz: Comey testified that he only leaked the memos in response to a tweet. The public record reveals that The New York Times was quoting from those memos the day before the referenced tweet.
That’s perjury.

Cleaned of encrustations, the CSS Hunley becomes a real submarine

For more than a century, the CSS Hunley rested at the bottom of the ocean just outside Charleston harbor, its crew entombed, its hull gradually encased in hardening encrustations.

When it was raised 15 years ago off South Carolina, it looked more like a barnacled sea monster than the world's first operational submarine, sunk in battle during the winter of 1864.

The remains of its eight sailors were removed in 2001, but research has continued, and Thursday, a conservation team announced that experts have now removed more than half a ton of the encrustations.
