You Won’t Believe What Hollywood Is Going To Do With Obama

The Obama White House is getting the Hollywood treatment as a workplace comedy.

According to the Hollywood Reporter (THR), Universal Pictures and Anonymous Content are developing a “high-concept workplace comedy” based on the book proposal From the Corner of the Oval by Beck Dorey-Stein, a former White House stenographer.

Breitbart reports,

Stein’s book has been picked up by Random House Publishing Group division Spiegel & Grau.

“The book doesn’t promise a revealing look inside the inner workings of the Obama administration, but focuses more on the White House as a workplace and on the relationships between the staffers,” THR reports.

“From the Corner of the Oval follows a young woman living in Washington D.C. who is at an all-time career low when, through a twist of fate, she goes from serving cocktails to lobbyists to being hired as a stenographer in the Obama White House,” THR says of the book’s synopsis. “The ultimate fish out of water, she stumbles into an elite world and finds herself navigating a series of misadventures in life and love.”

The film will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar, whose previous work includes the Oscar-winning drama Spotlight.

CRAZY Maxine Waters Is At It Again

Maxine Waters really hates Donald Trump and has been looking for any excuse to scream IMPEACH! The aging California Representative is now doubling down on her calls for impeachment of President Trump on Twitter

Waters said earlier this month:

“The only thing that I am focused on is credible investigations to bring out the facts. … If the facts are there, then I think we should move very quickly to do something about it. And if there was collusion, and any support for undermining our democracy, I think the president should be impeached,” “I’ve said that, and that’s where I stand.”



Before the House Intelligence Committee on Monday, FBI Director James Comey confirmed what everyone already suspected – that federal investigators were actively looking into the Russian hacks of 2016 and whether or not anyone in the Trump campaign worked with the Russians to help them succeed in their efforts. This was the first time the Trump aspect of the investigation was acknowledged publicly by Comey, but leaks had already revealed many details of the FBI’s case, including some of the figures at the center of suspicion – Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Carter Page, and Michael Flynn among them.

“As you know,” Comey said, “our practice is not to confirm the existence of ongoing investigations. But, in unusual circumstances, where it is in the public interest, it may be appropriate to do so, as Justice Department policy recommends. This is one of those circumstances.

“I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI and part of our Counter-Intelligence Commission is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election,” he continued, “and that includes investigating the nature of any links between the individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.”

First of all, Comey said he got special permission from the Justice Department to break with FBI protocol and confirm this investigation. Meaning what? Meaning, he got authorization from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, right? Sessions, who was a self-proclaimed surrogate for Trump during the campaign. Sessions, who has also been under scrutiny for talking to Russian officials. Sessions, who the Democrats claimed could never be impartial when it came to the president. That’s the guy who told Comey, “Yeah, go ahead and tell them what they want to hear, it’s fine.” You could basically then go as far as to say that the Trump administration put their stamp of approval on Comey’s testimony.

Doesn’t really seem like what you’d expect from a White House with something to hide, especially if that “something” essentially amounts to treason.

What else? Comey said in the hearing that the FBI had no evidence to suggest that the Russians hacked the voting system. He said they had no evidence one way or the other to suggest that the DNC hacks influenced a single American’s vote in the election. So right there, he basically undermined the entire Democrat argument, which is that Trump is an illegitimate president. Nothing doing. The election was fair and free, and the result was the result.

But here’s the important thing. Here’s where all of this really falls apart if you have an IQ in the mid double-digits. Here’s what the Democrats are asking us to believe: That U.S. intelligence has had evidence, dating back to at least December and perhaps as far back as July, that Donald Trump and his associates secretly colluded with Vladimir Putin to steal the election. And to believe that, we have to believe that:

A: Donald Trump is so stupid that he thought he could get away with the single biggest act of treason in American history.

B: The FBI calmly allowed a known traitor to assume the office of the U.S. presidency.

C: The FBI continues to allow a known traitor to occupy said office.

You HAVE to swallow all three of these ideas to believe that this is the bombshell that Democrats and the mainstream media are saying it is.

Do you? Can you?

We’ll believe it when they march Trump out of the White House in handcuffs. And should that fateful day ever arrive, we’re going to have some serious questions, starting with: Why did it take this long?

Somehow, we have a feeling we’ll never have to ask those questions.

Nunes: Trump transition members were under surveillance during Obama administration

by Austin Wright

Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under surveillance during the Obama administration following November’s election, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes told reporters Wednesday.

Nunes said the surveillance appears to have been legal, incidental collection and that it does not appear to have been related to concerns over collusion with Russia.
Nunes is going to the White House later Wednesday to brief the Trump administration on what he has learned, which he said came from “sources.”

Trump Sets HISTORIC Renegotiation Meeting In Coming Weeks That Will Change America FOREVER

If Mexican officials were hoping that the North American Free Trade Agreement was going to stay intact under the Trump administration, they were sadly mistaken — and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross just put them on notice that their worst nightmare is going to begin in a few weeks.

According to CNBC, Ross announced Friday that he plans to begin the formal process of renegotiating NAFTA “in the next couple of weeks.”

From Conservative Tribune

American law stipulates that the executive branch needs to inform Congress 90 days before it signs any new trade agreement. Ross said that there is no “date certain” to begin the formal process, according to Breitbart.

During a joint news conference with Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal, Ross also announced he had been consulting with the Senate Finance and House Ways and Means committees on negotiations involving the trilateral agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

“The next stage will be hopefully in the next couple of weeks, which will be to issue 90-day letter,” Ross said.

While three nations are involved in NAFTA, Ross said negotiations with Mexico and Canada could happen separately as “two parallel bilaterals.”

Renegotiating NAFTA had been one of President Donald Trump’s major promises during his campaign, and Ross seemed to indicate that he was going to reshape the agreement based on current economic realities.

Trump had already signed, in the same executive order in which he announced America’s intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, an order declaring his intent to renegotiate NAFTA, according to CNBC.

Rebuilding the U.S. economy was a cornerstone of Trump’s campaign, and Ross said, “doesn’t deal with the Mexican economy or the U.S. economy or the Canadian economy in their current form.”

“At a minimum its needs an update. Arguably there were some sections that didn’t work out.”

You can bet this is making Mexico very nervous… and the Trump White House very happy.

Whoa! What Trump Just Did For Flint Michigan Will FLOOR YOU! The Media Will NEVER Report This!

President Trumps campaign visits to Flint, Michigan gave him an up close view of the deprecated infrastructure of this once booming town. Flint residents been crying out for months for help and now their call is finally being answered!

“President Trump is awarding 100 million dollars to the city of Flint, Michigan!”

Liberty Writers News reports,

The funds are part of the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act, which was approved in 2016 and now being carried out by President Trump. The money was officially awarded on Friday, and will help the city accelerate programs to replace service lines that have leached lead in to the city’s water supply.

Mayor, Karen Weaver said the city is really ‘excited and very grateful’ to receive the aid from the federal government.

“The city of Flint being awarded a grant of this magnitude in such a critical time of need will be a huge benefit,” Weaver said.

President Trump supports making budget cuts to save taxpayers money, but this is an area that he will not touch.

“Under President Trump’s budget blueprint, SRF (State Revolving Fund) remains fully funded, and the proposal provides robust funding for the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act program to finance critical drinking and wastewater infrastructure,” the EPA said in a statement.

Many community activists claim that this situation has been ignored because Flint residents are mostly black and poor. I wonder if those same activists will praise our president for releasing the funds so quickly to help Americans in need.

Five Reasons Trump Is Right to Cut NPR, PBS

President Donald Trump’s first on page 11 labeled, “America First,” ends federal funding to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) — which, in turn, supports National Public Radio (NPR) and Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).

The left is howling, and local public radio stations are already campaigning to oppose the move. Democrats are spamming supporters with fundraising emails. Yet there are several reasons that ending federal funding for NPR and PBS is a great idea.

1. They do not need the money. In 2011, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas secretly recorded senior NPR executives meeting with a potential donor and admitting that NPR “would be better off in the long run without federal funding.” NPR reports that it “receives less than 2 percent of its budget directly from CPB,” and has long anticipated the possibility of losing that.

2. Big Bird doesn’t work there anymore. In 2015, Sesame Street‘s production company signed a deal with HBO. The first HBO-hosted shows began in 2016, and only aired nine months later on PBS for children from less affluent households.

3. NPR is biased in favor of liberals and against conservatives. NPR’s political coverage is consistently slanted against Republicans and conservatives, and in favor of liberals. The network also takes aim at conservative rivals: last week, for example, it accused Breitbart News, falsely, of producing “fake news.” It also churns out such fare as Code Switch, which often reinforces racial identity. Using taxpayer funds to support one-sided news coverage is an abuse of taxpayer money.

4. PBS no longer produces content worth public investment. As Steven Titch noted recently at The Hill:

It has superb shows, such as Downton Abbey, Sherlock and Frontline. But as Sesame Street’s defection demonstrated, most of these programs could easily find a place on commercial cable and streaming outlets. The remainder of PBS programming approaches self-parody: examples such as Golf’s Grand Design, Great Old Amusement Parks and Andre Rieu: Waltzing Forever.

The argument for public television—that it offers an exclusive place for quality content and entertainment that would be too narrow, too marginal and too unprofitable for commercial TV—is risible in an age of hundreds of cable channels and near-unlimited streaming.

5. Conservatives have been promising to cut funding for decades. Newt Gingrich and the Republican Revolution of 1994 wanted to cut federal funding for PBS and NPR, but failed. When the Tea Party took over the House in 2010, they likewise failed to pass the promised cuts. This time, conservatives control both houses of Congress.

The taxpayers helped launch NPR and PBS. It is well past time to let them go. They will probably do better on their own — and be less of a political target.

Budget Architect: “Waste of Money” to Research Climate Change

Director Mick Mulvaney of the Office of Management and Budget is reportedly one of the chief architects behind the newly-released White House budget proposal, and he isn’t shy about defending the deep cuts recommended in the plan. Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Mulvaney was asked about President Trump’s proposal to slash the EPA’s funding and how it would affect governmental research on climate change.

“Part of your answer is focusing on efficiencies and focusing on doing what we do better. As to climate change, I think the President was fairly straightforward saying we’re not spending money on that anymore,” Mulvaney said. “We consider that to be a waste of your money to go out and do that. So that is a specific tie to his campaign.”

Trump has suggested deep spending cuts to several government agencies, including the EPA, in his proposal for discretionary spending for Fiscal Year 2017. He has also announced h
is plans to eliminate at least 3,000 jobs at the EPA, a move that would by itself curtail much of the department’s regulatory enforcement power. He is also talking seriously about yanking U.S. participation in the Paris Climate Agreement, which could save taxpayers in excess of half a billion dollars.

In his remarks on Thursday, Mulvaney said that Trump’s budget was in line with the theme of his candidacy.“The President is absolutely going to keep his promises made on the campaign trail,” Mulvaney said. “He did not ask lobbyists for input on this. He did not ask special interests for input on this and he certainly didn’t focus on how these programs might impact a specific congressional district but we know that going into it. The message we’re sending to the Hill is, we want more money for the things the President talked about, defense being the top one, national security and we don’t want to add to the budget deficit.”

Specific to the EPA, Trump has spoken numerous times about his skepticism of the official line on climate change, putting him back on the firm footing that many moderate Republicans have abandoned. But really, this comes down less to what you believe or don’t believe about climate change and more to what you believe the federal government should or shouldn’t be doing with our tax dollars. Even climate change zealots have said the Obama administration’s efforts will do little to curb carbon emissions. Why should we spend billions on programs that do nothing to curb a problem that we don’t have?

Republicans aren’t going to pass this budget as it is, but if they even keep a fraction of Trump’s framework, it’ll be one of the biggest strikes for small government conservatism we’ve seen in a long time. And it will come from a president who mainstream conservative thinkers barely consider to be part of their ideological ranks. How interesting…


Trump’s DOJ sends documents related to Wiretap Claim to House Panel

The Department of Justice (DOJ) sent documents to the House Intelligence Committee on Friday in response to a request for evidence backing up President Trump’s claim that former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.

The committee is currently reviewing the documents, an aide confirmed to The Hill.

The Hill reports,

It’s unclear what’s in the documents, which CNN reported separately had also been delivered to the Senate Intelligence Committee, though that report could not be immediately confirmed.

Leaders on the House panel sent a letter to the DOJ last week asking for evidence related to Trump’s claim earlier this month that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower ahead of the presidential election. A spokesman for Obama denied at the time that he or any White House official ordered such surveillance.

On Monday, the DOJ asked for more time to produce the documents, bucking a March 13 deadline set by the committee. Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) indicated that the committee could subpoena the department for the documents if they were not received by Monday, when the panel holds a hearing.

Trump tweeted March 4 accusing Obama of having his “wires tapped” in Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign. He has stood by his claim despite lawmakers in both parties saying as of Thursday that they had not seen evidence to support his allegation.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer has sought to clarify the claim, saying that Trump put the wiretapping accusation “in quotes” and was more broadly referring to surveillance activities by the Obama administration.

But Spicer also said that Trump “stands by” his initial tweets on the subject, and Trump on Friday joked about the wiretapping claim during a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The House Intelligence Committee will hold an open hearing on Russian interference in the election on Monday, where questions about Trump’s claims are sure to be raised. Lawmakers will have the opportunity to press FBI Director James Comey on the issue.
