Omarosa Was A Horrible Employee For The Clinton Admin Too

There’s a reason everyone hated her.

Via Daily Caller:

The Trump White House is not the first to be unsatisfied with the work performance of Omarosa Manigault, the former senior Trump staffer who already released secretly recorded conversations she had with the president and Chief of Staff John Kelly

Despite Manigault’s complaints that she was treated poorly in the Trump White House during her tenure as one of the highest paid staffers there, former “numerous” staffers for Vice President Al Gore’s office told The New York Times last year that she was a terrible employee for the then-vice president.

During her days on Trump’s NBC program The Apprentice, People Magazine reported in 2004 that she held four jobs within two years when she worked for the Clinton administration.

At 24 years of age, she scored an entry-level, $25,000-per-year post replying to invitations for the vice president. According to The Times, she left a mound of 13 months-worth of unanswered correspondence addressed to Gore below her desk.

People Magazine reported a former staffer said, “she didn’t do her job, and it got everybody in trouble.”

“She was the worst hire we ever made,” Mary Margaret Overbey, Gore’s former office administrator told The Times.

The Violent Left Is A Serious Problem, Stop Parroting Their Propaganda

More serious problem than the small number of Nazis who no one is supporting because media is justifying them and not calling out their true pernicious nature.

Via Washington Examiner:

On Sunday, a relatively small group of white nationalists, under the banner of “Unite the Right,” chose to make an ostentatious celebration of the anniversary of their rally in Charlottesville — the one in which one of their number killed a counterprotester with his car. This time, they protested directly in front of the White House.

Naturally, this attracted a significantly larger counterprotest, filled mostly with goodwill opponents of their racist ideology. But the hooligan-like behavior of some in the crowd, who threw eggs and water bottles and shot fireworks at journalists and the police, served as a reminder that the Hitler Junior crowd, odious as they are, are a much smaller and less threatening gang than the so-called “antifa,” that mob of militant leftists known for their political street violence.

Fortunately, their uncivil antics were kept far milder than usual, in spite of their own best efforts to provoke a police confrontation. But bear in mind that both their numbers and their reach are far and away greater than anything the pathetic nationalists could ever muster. Their reach is also truly national.

Unlike the crowd that appeared last year in Charlottesville to universal condemnation, these rioters, with their cop-killer rhetoric and their skull-cracking, window-smashing tactics of political persuasion, now hold sway over many weak-minded politicians who sympathize with, collaborate with, or fear them too much to resist.

Even to call them “antifa” or “anti-fascist” is a mistake, an uncritical acceptance of their own euphemisms. Although they are a mix of Marxists and anarchists, they derive that term from Stalinist propaganda that started in the 1930s and picked up again in the 1940s after the Soviet Union abandoned its alliance with Nazi Germany. This word was used by the Soviet communists not only to help in the war effort, but also to reinforce their tyrannical domestic rule.

“Anti-fascism,” it turns out, is a great excuse for government to make people do anything you want them to do. Why, the Berlin Wall, from its construction in 1961, was always referred to behind the Iron Curtain as the “anti-fascist barrier,” implying that it was there to keep out harmful Western influences.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo Defends Antifa: “Those Who Oppose Hate ‘Are On The Side Of Right’

Pushing the Antifa line.

Via The Hill:

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said late Monday that Antifa should not be equated with white supremacists, arguing that “in a clash between hate & those who oppose it, those who oppose it are on the side of right” even if they resort to “petty violence.”

“You attack cops, you slap the media, you are in the wrong, period,” Cuomo said in a commentary on “Cuomo Prime Time.” “But I argue to you tonight all punches are not equal morally.”

“In the eyes of the law, yes. But in the eyes of good and evil, here’s the argument: If you’re a punk that comes to start trouble in a mask and hurt people you’re not about any virtuous cause,” he continued. “You’re just somebody that’s going to be held to the standard of doing something wrong.”

Trump Campaign Seeks ‘Millions’ Against Omarosa For Violating Nondisclosure Agreement

She also may get charged for recording in the Situation Room.

Via Washington Examiner:

President Trump’s campaign organization Tuesday has filed for arbitration against friend-turned-enemy Omarosa Manigault Newman, claiming that she broke a 2016 nondisclosure contract by disparaging the president in her new book and revealing private talks from the ultra-secret White House Situation Room.

In New York, Trump campaign lawyers filed for arbitration to force the former star of “The Apprentice” to abide by the agreement they say she signed when joining the 2016 campaign.

According to a sample of the agreement provided to Secrets, she was required to keep proprietary information about the president, his companies or his family confidential and to never “disparage” the Trump family “during the term of your service and at all times thereafter.”

GoFundMe Page Raises $250,000 for Peter Strzok After Firing From FBI

Crime pays.

Via Fox News Insider:

A GoFundMe has been set up by a group supporting former FBI agent Peter Strzok in order to cover his legal fees and lost income.

The “Friends Of Special Agent Peter Strzok” have quickly garnered more than $250,000 for Strzok, who was let go by the bureau on Friday.

Strzok played an integral part in both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and what would later become the special counsel’s Russia probe.

He was subpoenaed to testify before House lawmakers in July over anti-Trump texts he sent to Lisa Page, his former co-worker and lover, using his FBI phone.

Westminster Terror Attack: Driver ‘Not Known To MI5’ Arrested After Car Ploughs Into People Near Parliament

Well, that’s a switch, ‘not known.’

Via The Telegraph:

A terror suspect arrested after a car crashed into a barrier at the Houses of Parliament at high speed is not believed to be known to the security services, police have said.

At least three people were injured when the silver Ford Fiesta hit a group of cyclists and pedestrians waiting for traffic lights to change. Rooftop camera footage shows the car mounting a pavement on the wrong side of the road before, witnesses said, it travelled at up to 50mph for around 40 metres (130ft) and hit a bollard.

Westminster was in lockdown as armed police swarmed the scene on Tuesday morning. One witness said: “It looked intentional – the car drove at speed and towards the barriers.”

Scotland Yard said a man in his late 20s was arrested after the incident at around 7.30am. The suspect was taken to a south London police station, where he remains on suspicion of terrorism offences. He is not co-operating with officers.

Liberal Billionaire Steyer Sinking $10 Million Into New Voting Drive Effort To Defeat Trump

Giving them Uber vouchers for a ride to the polls would be cheaper.

Via Politico:

Democratic billionaire activist Tom Steyer Monday announced he’ll invest $10 million in a new national get-out-the-vote campaign aimed at reaching 5.5 million Americans who have signed his petition to impeach President Donald Trump.

“We’re in a fight to save the soul of America, so we’re not going to turn our eyes away from the most important truth in our country … which is that the president has no respect for our country, no respect for the Constitution and no respect for the American people,“ Steyer said Monday at an event in Lansing, Michigan, that was webcast live. “The biggest task in this country today is to return power to the American people.”

Steyer — whose Need to Impeach petition drive founded last October has collected 5.5 million signatures — said he will invest $10 million “to contact every single one of our supporters and encourage them to cast a ballot.“

The success of such personalized outreach voter efforts has already been proven in 2018, Steyer said. He told supporters that in the recent Ohio congressional District 12 House race, “our members turned out at a rate 30 percent higher than Dems that didn’t sign the petition.” In that race alone, he said, “’Need to Impeach’ contributed to a near-death experience for the GOP in a seat they held for over 35 years.“

Steyer said he’s now upping his investment because he believes that impact can be multiplied.

“We have 10,000 supporters in the most competitive House districts,“ he said. “If our movement does show up in November, we can change who controls the House.”

Shooter In Deadly Florida ‘Stand Your Ground’ Case Arrested For Manslaughter

Here we go again. Update to this story.

Via Fox News:

A Florida man was arrested on a prosecutor’s warrant Monday in connection with a fatal shooting last month that a sheriff said was justified under the state’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law.

Michael Drejka, 47, was charged with manslaughter in the July 19 death of 28-year-old Markeis McGlockton during a dispute over a handicapped parking spot at a convenience store in Clearwater.

The shooting, which was caught on video, reignited debate around the “Stand Your Ground” law, and led to demonstrations by protesters who criticized Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gulatieri for not arresting Drejka, a white man who shot and killed an unarmed black man.

Gualtieri said detectives from his office took Drejka into custody pursuant to an arrest warrant. Drejka, of Clearwater, was booked into the county jail, and bond was set at $100,000.

“I support the State Attorney’s decision and will have no further comment as the case continues to work its way through the criminal justice system,” the sheriff said.

Family members of McGlockton said they were pleased the suspect was charged with manslaughter. Family attorney Benjamin Crump — who gained national prominence representing the family of Trayvon Martin after the black teen’s fatal shooting by a Hispanic man George Zimmerman in 2012 — said in a statement Monday: “It’s about time” Drejka was arrested.

“This self-appointed wannabe cop attempted to hide behind `Stand Your Ground’ to defend his indefensible actions, but the truth has finally cut through the noise,” Crump said. “I have full faith that this truth will prevail to punish this cold-blooded killer who angrily created the altercation that led to Markeis’ needless death.”

McGlockton, 28, of Clearwater, shoved Drejka to the ground, and then was shot and killed when Drejka, from a sitting position, pulled out a gun he legally owned and opened fire. McGlockton was shot once in the chest.

Parliament Crash: Terror Probe After Several People Are Hurt When Car ‘Intentionally Ploughs Into Cyclists At 50 MPH’

Authorities checking the watch list.

Via Daily Mail:

Counter-terrorism police today completely sealed off Westminster after a car travelling at up to 50mph struck pedestrians and ploughed into barriers installed to stop attacks outside the Houses of Parliament.

The driver, described as being black and wearing a puffa coat, was pulled from the smoking silver vehicle by around a dozen armed officers who had their rifles trained on him following the rush hour smash.

A ‘loud bang’ echoed around Parliament Square at 7.30am and witnesses said the car was travelling at up to 50mph and appeared to ‘intentionally’ swerve towards Parliament and smashed into a security checkpoint barrier.

Two people were treated for their injuries in hospital but they are not fighting for their lives. Initially police were treating it as a road traffic collision but two hours later the force said: ‘While we are keeping an open mind, the Met’s Counter-Terrorism Command is leading the investigation into the incident’.

Ewalina Ochab saw the incident and said: ‘I think it looked intentional – the car drove at speed and towards the barriers’, while witness Jason Williams said: I saw at least 10 people lying down. I had to run for my life.’

More than 200 officers have been sent to Westminster who moved members of the public away from the area in every direction.

Specialist officers and sniffer dogs ‘sanitised’ the scene – a term used when checking for a bomb or dangerous chemicals.

The Houses of Parliament is closed after the incident, but MPs are away because it is during the summer recess.

The crash came 17 months after Khalid Masood drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge – killing five – before stabbing to death PC Keith Palmer at the gates of Parliament.

WWII Pilot Gets Thanks From Son Of The Man He Saved

Via Navy Times:

Miles apart from one another, two men celebrated a single day in history as their defining moment.

One of the men, 1st Lt. Philip S. (Pots) Wilmot, of Glenwood Springs, remembers it as the most important thing he did during World War II.

The other man, the Rev. Thomas Papazoglakis of Clifton Park, New York, was not alive that day in 1945, but he knows that without the help of two marine pilots his dad would never have made it back from the war, never married his mother and therefore he never would have been born.

It all started when Pots, a Marine pilot and World War II veteran, shared the story of when he helped escort a damaged Navy torpedo bomber to safety to author and friend Martin Irons.

“I think that’s why I was put here, to save Rev. Tom’s dad; that’s my ultimate achievement.” — Philip S. (Pots) Wilmot, WWII pilot from Glenwood Springs

Pots had always wondered what had happened to the crew of that aircraft. Irons, who met Pots while researching for a book project, decided to look into it for his story.

“This whole thing unfolded in about 44 hours,” Irons said. And on the 73th anniversary of the attack last March, he made contact with Papazoglakis, rector at St. George’s Episcopal Church in Clifton Park.

Neither Pots nor Papazoglakis had ever shared their stories, or even been able to meet each other, until a recent Friday in Glenwood Springs.

The day was March 19, 1945.

“It was my best day and my worst day,” Pots told the Glenwood Springs Post Independent during his meeting with Papazoglakis at Pots’ daughter’s house.

Flying in a Vought F4U Corsair, Pots and his squadron were tasked with a mission to attack Kure Naval Base, one of four principal naval shipyards operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy, located on the island of Honshu.

Pots said he had no idea that it would be bad, but when they arrived over Honshu the sky was filled with flak.

“One went off right next to my wing, I closed my eyes thinking I was dead, but all it did was knock me around,” said Pots, remembering the attack with amazing detail right down to checking his oil pressure after the hit.

After dive bombing and hitting a carrier with three rockets, Pots was separated from his commander as he pulled up from his dive. In the chaos of the attack, Pots was able to locate fellow pilot 1st Lt. W.E. Brown, and slid up into formation with him for the return to their carrier.

As they flew under the clouds on their way back to the Bunker Hill, an Essex class aircraft carrier, Wilmot and Brown spotted a damaged Grumman Avenger TBM-3. The aircraft came out of the clouds smoking and losing altitude. Knowing the plane was not going make it back to its carrier and that the crew were sitting ducks, the two pilots began to escort the TBM-3 on its descent.

The TBM-3 was crewed by Navy Pilot Lt. Ray Plant and Gunner James Papazoglakis, Aviation Mechanist Mate 3rd Class.

“All my dad said was they were flying over their target and could barely see, as they navigated through the flak exploding around them,” Papazoglakis said. “All of a sudden they were hit, flak hit the tail and my dad hit his head on the turret.

“When he came to they were flying over mountains and out to sea,” he said.

“Sure enough, a damn Frank, a code name from Imperial Japanese Navy fighter plane, came right out of the clouds trying to finish off the Avenger,” Pots added. Luckily, Lt. Brown was able to fire on the Japanese plane and bring it down before it made contact with the Navy plane.

“In the stories my dad always told, he never saw the Japanese plane, he was too busy watching the tail fall off the TBM-3,” Papazoglakis said.

The Avenger continued to lose altitude, looking for a place to ditch the aircraft. Off the coast of Honshu in the Pacific Ocean, the pilots stumbled upon the Bowfin, an American rescue submarine.

Breaking: Judge Releases Defendants In Muslim Compound Case After Claims Of Racism, Islamaphobia

Watchdog: Obama Admin Gave Out $434 Million In Improper Obamacare Payments

Mainstream media silent

Via Washington Examiner:

The Obama administration improperly paid out $434 million to Obamacare customers to pay down the cost of insurance in 2014, the first year the law’s health insurance marketplaces went online, a federal watchdog reported Monday.

Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General released a report Monday that outlined the improper payments during Obamacare’s first year.

In a review of 140 health insurance policies sold in 2014, the inspector general found that Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services improperly paid out financial assistance payments for 26 policies.

For the other five policies, CMS authorized possibly improper financial assistance to insurers that didn’t provide the right documentation.

How Far They’ve Fallen: WaPo Upset Trump Posed With Biker Who Wore ‘Guns And T*tties’ Patch

Can you imagine the time someone took to review all the pics of all the bikers and their patches to come up with this? Crazy.

Via Daily Caller:

The Washington Post published an article on Monday complaining that President Trump posed next to a biker wearing a “sexist” patch on his vest.

Trump met with supporters in the “Bikers For Trump” group over the weekend and posed for photos with some of the group’s members at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.

The bikers typically wear vests with dozens of various patches on them, and the Washington Post zoomed in on the photos of the bikers with the president to see what the patches said.

One of the patches seemed to ruffle the feathers of one reporter, who called it “sexist.” The patch in question features an image of a topless woman with guns covering her breasts and the caption, “I [heart] guns and t***ies.”

Peter Strzok Reacts To His Firing On New Twitter Account, Asks For Donations

Update to this story. Following in the grand tradition of his fellow fired FBI official Andrew McCabe, putting his hand out for money from deluded leftists.

Via Fox News:

Fired FBI agent Peter Strzok took his anti-Trump rhetoric public on Monday, setting up a defiant Twitter account and a GoFundMe page seeking to raise $150,000 to cover his “legal costs and lost income.”

Strzok, who played a lead role in both the Russian meddling and Hillary Clinton email probes but became a political lightning rod after the revelation of text messages critical of Trump, wasted no time blasting the administration and House Republicans in his new social media account.

“Deeply saddened by this decision,” Strzok wrote in the tweet. “It has been an honor to serve my country and work with the fine men and women of the FBI.”

He attached an image of a statement from his attorneys that criticized his firing, saying “the FBI and the American people deserve better.” The letter specifically lambasted the decision of the deputy director of the FBI to effectively overrule the FBI’s internal disciplinary body, which had recommended Strzok be suspended and demoted instead of terminated.

‘We Got Quite A Laugh’: Pentagon Bats Down Mattis 2020 Report

He would bring artillery to the debates.

Via Military Times:

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is not considering a run for president, and certainly not saying that if he did run, he’d “kick Trump’s ass,” the Pentagon said Thursday.

“We got quite a laugh out of it in our morning meeting. It’s pure fiction — plain and simple,” said Pentagon press secretary Dana White.

The latest Mattis 2020 rumor was published by Beltway Breakfast, an online publication that was previously focused on reporting on broadband technology. In the piece, a reporter said the ass-kicking comment came about as Mattis and other military officials discussed the possibility that the defense secretary would be asked by President Donald Trump to step aside.

Mattis is one of the longest-serving members of Trump’s cabinet, although recent White House-led announcements, where it appeared the Pentagon was not consulted, have lead to speculation that he was on the way out.[…]

The retired four-star general has inspired a cult-like following online, with Mattis T-shirts, “Saint Mattis” candles, even Mattis .50 caliber bullet bottle openers. Insiders who have worked closely with him in this administration however, have unanimously said Mattis has no interest in the higher office, and said he seeks to serve the entire four years, to have enough time to carry out his vision for personnel, strategy and resourcing across the department.

Mattis was asked by Pentagon reporters in late December whether he thought he would remain defense secretary for the entire first term.

“I take it one day at a time,” he said.

NYPD Cops Subjected To Foul-Mouthed Tirade After 911 Call In Bronx, Determined No Arrests Necessary

Community policing in NYC.

Via Daily Mail:

NYPD officers who responded to a 911 call inside a Bronx apartment and determined no arrests were necessary, were then taunted with expletives hurled at them by a group as they left the scene.

The police had responded to an apartment after a woman called 911 to report a fight among teenagers who were hanging out with her son on August 8 around 10.30am.

After the police arrived, the woman said the fight was over and she no longer wanted the teens to leave.

A source with the NYPD told DailyMail.com: ‘We responded to the location for a dispute and there were no arrests and no summonses made.’

After determining no criminal action was necessary, the cops, who are neighborhood-coordination officers were leaving, only to be verbally accosted by at least two men as they walked out.

As the officers descended the stairs, a man holding a camera shouts at them ‘You p****! You p****!’ inside of the building on Westchester Avenue near East 158th Street.

‘Suck my d***! Suck my d****!’ the man adds.

And another man chimes in yelling at the cops: ‘Get the f*** out my building!’

A police source told the New York Post that the cops could have arrested the people screaming at them as they left, or at the very least issued a summons for harassment or disorderly conduct, however because of how officers are trained right now, they are told to back down and just take it.
