Maher: Liberals Shouldn’t Be ‘Reflexively Hating on’ Trump Meeting with Kim – Trump and Kim ‘Are Mirror Images’
On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher criticized “liberals who are reflexively hating on” President Trump’s announcement he would meet with Kim Jong-un. He stated that they loved the idea when Obama proposed it and that the meeting could work because Kim and Trump “are mirror images.” Maher said, “I know why I’m happy. Because Kim Jong-un of North Korea yesterday told South Korea that he is willing to meet with the leader of the United States, but Putin wasn’t available, so Trump’s going. Fat man and little boy are going to have a date. It looks like Trump is going to travel to North Korea in May, and of course, there are reasons — a hundred reasons why this is dangerous. We’re talking about, after all, a family that has reneged on every deal they ever signed, and Kim Jong-un can’t be trusted either.” Maher continued, “I was watching all the cable news last night, and to all these liberals who are reflexively hating on this, A. Obama, remember him? He proposed the exact same thing in 2008 and they loved it. And B. You know, f*ck you. You don’t live on the west coast, where
On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher argued that President Trump’s dealings with Stormy Daniels “could, in a weird way, be the thing that brings him down.” Maher said, “Stormy Daniels, how about that? No, I mean, it sounds facetious, but honestly, I think this could — in a weird way — be the thing that brings him down.” Although Maher agreed with New York Times Opinion Staff Editor and Writer Bari Weiss’ point that the Lewinsky scandal pushed President Clinton to impeachment, he later agreed with CNN Political Commentator Ana Navarro that Republicans won’t impeach Trump over Daniels.

A former Justice Department lawyer specializing in corporate-fraud was handed a 30-month prison sentence for attempting to sell stolen information to over 40 whistleblower cases in 2016.
Jeffrey Wertkin, 40, was arrested in an undercover sting after an attorney for a Sunnyvale, CA tech company contacted the FBI in January following Wertkin’s offer to sell them a sealed federal lawsuit for $310,000, according to court documents. As he was taken into custody wearing a wig and fake mustache at a Cupertino, CA hotel by FBI Special Agent William Scanlon, Wertkin reportedly said “My life is over.” […]
Wertkin – who specialized in healthcare fraud, planned his brazen scheme as he was leaving his job of nearly six years as a DOJ fraud prosecutor in April 2016 to join the law firm Akin Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld as a $450,000 / year partner in Washington. He began copying files for over a month before leaving the agency – including dozens of federal cases that weren’t assigned to him, according to court records.
From his position at Akin Gump, Wertkin attempted to net potential clients by dangling the stolen information. When that tactic bore no fruit, he stepped up his efforts – reaching out to a targeted Alabama company for $50,000, a New York company for an undetermined price, and an Oregon company to which he mailed a redacted copy of the cover sheet in their federal case as bait.
“Mr. Wertkin’s secret criminal life was not known to anyone at the firm. We were shocked when he was arrested and outraged when his bizarre, treacherous crimes were revealed,” said a spokesman for Akin Gump Thursday.
The disgraced lawyer has since resigned from the bar.
“I hope someday I will be able to understand how I could have abandoned my principles and my honor,” Wertkin said prior to his sentencing.
“I often lay awake at night and think about these actions, and I weep at the tragedy that I have brought on myself.”
Black continued, “If we get to the point where we no longer have an ability to claim the protection of our rights of conscience – and our civil authority can take that away from us – we’re in a really bad place, and so there are people who are stronger about saying, ‘This is a First Amendment right that we have.’”
Former Attorney General Eric ‘Fast and Furious’ Holder has been attacking President Trump from his Twitter account over the online Russian bot farm that supposedly “meddled” in the 2016 election.
The left wants to go to war with Russia over Twitter trolls. They are desperate to shield Hillary Clinton from the cold hard fact that she lost the election because she is a rotten politician.
A few weeks ago Eric Holder unleashed on President Trump, demanding he put sanctions on Russia because of online trolls posting memes.
Holder tweeted: Russian threat to our upcoming elections: do something! Do anything. Impose sanctions overwhelmingly approved by even this dysfunctional congress. Are you simply unfit, without the necessary nerve or do they have something on you? We were attacked!

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange pounded Eric Holder into dirt.
Assange replied to Eric Holder: “Attacked? By what? The truth? It’s entirely your own fault, Eric. Thanks to your unconstitutional grand jury against WikiLeaks you left me with nothing to do but work 27/7, in harsh conditions, for years–and I’m good, very good, at my job”

Julian Assange then hit Holder with round two.
Assange tweeted: Next time, not that there will be one, try following the constitution you swore to uphold:

Julian Assange has gone on the record many times to confirm Russia did not give him Podesta’s emails.
To this day the FBI has not inspected the DNC’s servers nor have they interviewed Julian Assange.
The Russians didn’t hack Hillary’s campaign emails; it’s a fabricated story by Hillary and the Deep State to deny Donald Trump his fully earned legitimacy as President of the United States.

Megyn Kelly: ‘I Think There’s a Very Good Chance’ Putin Knows Things Trump Doesn’t ‘Want Repeated Publicly’
On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” NBC anchor Megyn Kelly previewed her forthcoming NBC special “Confronting Putin” and stated that she thinks “there’s a very good chance Putin knows some things about Donald Trump that Mr. Trump does not want repeated publicly.” Kelly said, “I would not say that Putin likes Trump. I did not glean that at all from him. I do think — I did glean that perhaps he has something on Donald Trump. And if you watch the special tonight, you’ll see perhaps what that might be. Because we’ve done a lot of research. It’s not just Vladimir Putin tonight. It’s a lot of experts who understand Putin and Trump and the relationship between the two. And so, when I was asking him, why do you think Donald Trump never says anything unkind about you ever? I think it’s more than just he admires this Russian strongman, Chris. I think there’s a very good chance Putin knows some things about Donald Trump that Mr. Trump does not want repeated publicly.” She added that she doesn’t think Putin has anything on Trump related to the Steele Dossier, and “[J]ust having done the research we did for this piece and this investigative report, I
A student who attends Indiana University of Pennsylvania was barred from a religious studies course that he needed to complete in order to graduate after stating the fact that there are only two genders.
The student, Luke Ingle, was barred from class after objecting to claims made in a video featuring a transgender individual, countering with the argument that there are only two genders.
In a since-deleted Facebook post, Ingle commented:
“Later this week I will be defending myself and my FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS in front of the Academic Integrity Board (AIB) of the Indiana Univ. of Pennsylvania (IUP) against allegations of Classroom Conduct violations. The decision made by the AIB that day will determine whether I will be able to continue participating in my full course load, as well as graduate this May as scheduled. This is not transgender, woman’s rights, or wage issue. This is about free speech and the constant misuse of intellectual power in universities.”
The video Ingle and the other students were made to watch was a TED talk by Paula Stone, a transgender individual, who went on to talk about “mansplaining” “male privilege” and “systematic sexism”. The professor, Alison Downie, opened the floor to “WOMEN ONLY” after the video ended.
After some time had elapsed, Ingle stated he “took this opportunity to point out the official view of biologists who claim there are only two biological genders,” and refuted the “gender wage gap,” after which class resumed as normal.
“The floor was opened, and not a single woman spoke. Thirty seconds or so passed and still no woman had spoken. So, I decided it was permissible for me to enter the conversation, especially because I felt the conversation itself was completely inappropriate in its structure,” Ingle told Campus Reform. “I objected to the use of the anecdotal accounts of one woman’s experience to begin a discussion in which they were considered reality. It was during my objection that Dr. Downie attempted to silence me because I am not a woman.”
On February 29, Ingle met with his instructor, who he says gave him two documents—an Academic Integrity Referral Form and Documented Agreement. Photos of each document, along with a letter from IUP Provost Dr. Tomothy Moerland, were provided to Campus Reform.
View both documents below:
Below are statements found by Campus Reform via Ingle’s since-deleted Facebook post that touches on the documents:
“During my time as a Religious Studies major, I have had professors insult me for opposing views, call me names such as ‘racist’ or ‘sexist’, and have had my views discredited due my race, gender, and sexual orientation,” Ingle stated in his Facebook post.
“In short – this is not the first time an instructor and I have had a disagreement over course material or that I have objected to the views being pushed on the class,” he continued. “That being said, the wording in the documents is not only exaggerated, but more than one line is entirely untruthful and is done so purposefully to discredit my views and paint me as intolerant and ignorant.”
“It is my belief that the instructor’s decision to file these sanctions is an attempt to bully me into redacting my views, making it a matter of free speech,” Ingle concluded.
Ingle told Campus Reform that he will be defending his First Amendment rights to the university’s Academic Integrity Board, which will determine whether he will be allowed to resume attending class regularly, or be forced to graduate late.
“The censorship on college campuses is an issue I have tried to take head on in many of my courses as well as offering the opposing, conservative view that many classroom discussion beg for,” he said, adding that he is fighting less for himself than for the many other conservative students who endure similar experiences.
“With regards to my conflict with the university and instructor, I am fighting to make my voice heard. Not only my voice, but the voices of others that oppose popular university opinion,” he explained. “I am not battling my professor to prove that I am right about gender wage gaps or transgenderism, I am fighting to ensure that students may disagree with their professors and if they do, must speak up.”

Dopey Susan Rice – With Her History of Rwandan Genocide and Benghazi Lies – Lectures Trump on North Korea (Video)
Former Obama Official Susan Rice left a trail of genocide and lies when she left office in 2017.
This ad appeared in The New York Times in February 2015 pointing our her role in the Rwandan genocide.
“Susan Rice has a blind spot: Genocide,”
The ad attacks Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice and her history of genocide.
Rabbi Shmuley wrote this at his website.
Need someone to fraudulently blame the murder of an American Ambassador in Libya on a stupid film? Send Susan to the Sunday talk shows.
Need someone to savage the leader of the only democracy in the Middle East as damaging the “fabric” of Israel’s relationship with the United States? Put Susan in the makeup chair of Charlie Rose.
Yes, it seems there is nothing Susan isn’t prepared to do.
And why should that surprise us?
This is the same Susan Rice who forbade Israel from criticizing John Kerry in her infamous tweet: “Personal attacks in Israel directed at Sec Kerry totally unfounded and unacceptable.” Yes, Israel’s freedom of expression is circumscribed by none other than Susan Rice.
But there is another reason Susan Rice’s attack on the Prime Minister of Israel on Charlie Rose merits special opprobrium and that is the unique insensitivity she is famous for when it comes to genocide.
Iran is threatening to annihilate Israel. It is building the bombs to make that possible. It has lied to the world for more than a decade about its nuclear program. Iran is an oil superpower and energy exporter that needs nuclear energy about as much as I need a pork sandwich.
America is about to do a bad deal with Iran that will leave them something in the range of 5000 spinning centrifuges enriching Uranium. Israel is not party to the talks. It has been cast in the same position of Czechoslovakia in the Munich agreement of 1938 where Britain and France negotiated away Czech security (and much of the country) without the Czechs even allowed to be present.
And while Israel faces the possibility of genocide, Susan Rice shows gross insensitivity to an Israeli leader for simply speaking out.
But why shouldn’t Netanyahu entrust Israeli security to Susan Rice?
Perhaps its because of her record of trivializing genocide.
Read the rest here.
Susan Rice is also famous for going on FIVE Sunday talk shows and lying about the Benghazi terrorist attack.
But that didn’t stop Susan Rice from lecturing the Trump administration today after Kim Jong Un offered to meet with President Trump on Thursday night.
WATCH: Fmr. @AmbassadorRice warns the North Koreans are great at making and breaking agreements.
Rice says the US shouldn't make "declarations of success" just because the North Koreans agree to show up to the negotiating table. pic.twitter.com/WPnEKy88Mj

Susan Rice left a trail of bodies in her wake — including the US ambassador to Libya — but that doesn’t stop this shameless woman from lecturing the current administration on foreign policy.
This failed Obama lackey has no shame.
Chairman Nunes Expands Probe Into Hillary’s Phony Dossier With Letter to Obama Advisor Linked to Fusion GPS
The House Intel Committee headed by Chairman Nunes just expanded their probe into Hillary’s phony dossier.
The House Intel Committee issued letters to a dozen former Obama administration officials on Friday.
One of the former Obama officials who received the questionnaire from Nunes happens to be the wife of a Fusion GPS employee.
Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller reported:
The Daily Caller News Foundation is told that one of the letters was sent to Shailagh Murray, a former journalist who served as senior adviser to Obama and as former Vice President Joe Biden’s deputy chief of staff.
Murray’s husband is Neil King, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who worked at the newspaper at the same time as Fusion GPS’s three co-founders, Glenn Simpson, Peter Fritsch, and Tom Catan. Murray also worked at The Journal until 2005. She joined the Obama administration in 2011.
King left The Journal in December 2016 after accepting a buyout offer. Politico reported at the time that he was joining Fusion GPS, which is based in Washington, D.C.
House Intel Republicans are exploring whether there are similarities to Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and his wife, Nellie Ohr, according to Fox News, which first reported that Murray was being sent a letter. Bruce met with Fusion’s Simpson shortly after the election to discuss the dossier. Nellie worked for Fusion at the time as a researcher on the firm’s investigation on President Donald Trump.
Fox also reports that a questionnaire was sent to Colin Kahl, who served as national security adviser to Biden.
According to Chuck Ross’s report, the letter is also asking the officials when they found out about the dossier and when they learned Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid for the salacious document.
Chairman Nunes released a 4-page FISA memo on February 2nd revealing Hillary’s phony dossier was central in seeking and obtaining a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
The FISA memo also revealed Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, Sally Yates and Andrew McCabe all misled the FISA court by signing the FISA applications.
On February 20th, Chairman Nunes launched ‘phase 2’ of their probe into the origins of the phony dossier.
Nunes sent similar letters to former Intel chief James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan and former FBI Director James Comey.
Calls for a second special counsel to investigate Obama’s FISA abuses reached a fever pitch this week.
On Tuesday, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) demanded the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate FISA abuses
Last week, GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin sent a letter to AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions urging him to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate FISA abuses and how/why Hillary’s probe ended and Trump’s Russia probe began.
At the time of this publication, thirteen GOP Reps. have signed Zeldin’s letter.
On Thursday the AG’s office confirmed Sessions appointed a separate “senior federal prosecutor” to investigate the FISA abuses.
