OOPS: Looks like Robert Mueller has a major conflict-of-interest issue as special counsel

Jenna Greene, writing at Litigation Daily (subscription required), describes a significant hurdle faced by former FBI director Robert Mueller in serving as special counsel in the nonsensical "Russian collusion" investigation.

..until last week, Mueller was a partner at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr—where his colleague in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office, a fellow member of both the strategic response and regulatory and government affairs groups, was Jamie Gorelick.

GOOD NEWS: Arctic Doom Pushed Off Till 2040

The Arctic is now expected to be ice-free by 2040

10 Crazy Conspiracy Theories That Became Conspiracy Facts

By Jake Anderson

Generally speaking, conspiracy theories form where there is a vacuum of verifiable facts associated with a controversial, usually tragic event. The concept has evolved over the years and is a part of our popular culture. There are legions of conspiracy theorists and “truthers” who have devoted their lives to certain theories, and there are legions of skeptics who have devoted their lives to debunking those theories. All the while, conspiracy theories of every stripe and variety festoon the footnotes of history. Even the origin of the phrase itself is subject to conspiracy theory, as some researchers have argued that the CIA invented and promulgated the term in order to marginalize fringe thinkers and neutralize investigations.

The 5 Best Political Cartoons This Week

Steven Hayward at Power Line does an excellent job aggregating a whole swarm of political cartoons. My favorites?

5. #FakeNews

YOU WANT LEAKS? Let’s Give Them Leaks

The nonstop (and completely fraudulent) accusations leveled against the Donald Trump since his candidacy was announced have now reached a crescendo.

We're more than 100 days in to the new administration and we're still waiting for evidence that a single person in the Trump camp "colluded" with the Russians on a topic more serious than the best brand of vodka.

In fact, thanks to the liberal authors of the new bestseller Shattered, we now know that the Clinton camp invented the collusion tale to help explain their devastating loss. The media, despite the progressive provenance of the story,

The New York Times and The Washington Post continue to publish coordinated leaks by "unnamed sources" intended to wound the president. Their efforts have set the Beltway establishment all atwitter.

They sing a siren song of impeachment and criminal charges, twin aspirations as delusional as they are unachievable.

QOTD: "Here’s what Trump is alleged to have done here vis-a-vis the Comey memo. Comey memo says that Trump asked him to let it go. Let the Flynn investigation go. I can hope you see your way to let this go. He didn’t do anything. The guy… I love the guy, honest guy. Comey said, “Yeah, I can tell you honest guy, good guy.” And what Trump is alleged to have done is actually no different than what Barack Obama did in April last year when he made it known that he didn’t want Hillary prosecuted.

In fact, the Obama situation is actually worse. While Trump indicated he didn’t want Flynn charged, he did not order the case dropped, because it’s still going on. Trump indicated that he wanted Flynn not to be charged, but he did not order the case to be dropped. And the case continues. Grand juries have been impaneled now. In contrast, the FBI and the Department of Justice dropped the Hillary investigation just as Obama wanted them to, and they used exactly the rationales Obama used when he made his public statements.

Well, Obama, was saying there was no intent to harm the U.S., the degree of classified emails that Mrs. Clinton was trafficking in is very exaggerated. Obama went public with all this! He went public with his own exoneration and thought that the investigation should be brought to a screeching halt. And it was! Comey got together and they stopped the investigation, and that allowed them and Hillary — for the rest of the campaign — to say she had been cleared. That’s why they got so mad at Comey when he did the July 5th press conference, because back in April, Obama thought he’d taken care of this." --Rush Limbaugh

RUH ROH: Trey Gowdy Hints At a Much Bigger Scandal Involving the Clintons and Obama’s DOJ

By Rusty Weiss

We’ve all seen reports on the famous tarmac meeting between former attorney general Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. It was a meeting between an AG charged with finding the truth on the Hillary Clinton email scandal, and a man married to the main suspect in that scandal.

Shortly after that meeting, Barack Obama’s Department of Justice opted not to pursue charges against Clinton, setting off a stench of collusion between the two parties.

Congressman Trey Gowdy recently claimed it may have been worse.

SCANDAL-FREE: Massive Medicare Fraud Tied to Top Obama Appointee

It was the third time health fraud charges have been filed against United and its two major subsidiaries, Optum and OptumInsight.

COMEY UNDER OATH: I Have Never Been Pressured to Close an Investigation

By Tyler Durden

Next week's James Comey hearing is certainly setting up as a 'grab yr popcorn' moment with Democrats lining up for their 5 minutes of fame to ask the question that 'proves' Trump deserves impeachment. However, it appears there is no need for the hearing as Mr. Comey already confirmed - under oath - that "he has not been pressured to close an investigation for political purposes."

DEMOCRACKPOTS: Impeachment Propaganda Started Before Trump was Even Nominated

Really, the Democrats plans regarding Trump are going the way they wanted from a year ago. Certainly, Trump is helping them with their talking points by being a loose cannon and not staying on message, but, this was the Democrats playbook from the get-go.

MEANWHILE, BACK IN THE REAL WORLD: Immigration Arrests Jump Nearly 40 Percent Under Trump

By Will Racke

Immigration arrests climbed yet again in April as federal agents continued to track down both criminal and non-criminal aliens in far greater numbers over the first 100 days of the Trump administration than they did under former President Obama a year ago.

ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers administratively arrested 41,318 illegal aliens on civil immigration charges between Jan. 22 and April 29, according to agency data released Wednesday. That was a 38 percent jump over the 30,028 arrests made in the same time period in 2016, the final year of the Obama administration.

BEST BELEEDAT: U.S. Industrial Production Posts Largest Gain in Three Years

Comey-media hardest hit:

U.S. industrial output rose sharply in April, the latest evidence that economic growth is picking up following a lackluster start to the year.

Industrial production—a measure of output at factories, mines and utilities—jumped 1.0% from a month earlier, the Federal Reserve said Tuesday. That was the largest gain in more than three years.

LAST MAN STANDING: Hollywood Leftists move from burning books to burning TV scripts

By Daniel John Sobieski

The cancellation by ABC of Tim Allen’s hit comedy “Last Man Standing” comes on the heels of CBS’ Stephen Colbert’s obscenity laced rant against Donald Trump and underscores how far the media thought police have gone in their war on conservatives, conservative thought, and even conservative comedy.

Allen’s show, in which he play the manager of a sporting goods chain, features Allen’s biting and genuinely fumnny witticisms poking fun at all things liberal. It’s humor is balanced, with the show featuring a Canadian liberal son-in-law who gets his points across. But it is a rarity among sitcoms, in that any conservative viewpoints are represented at all. In its sixth season, Last Man Standing is doing quite well in the ratings. As the entertainment website Deadline noted:

QOTD: "The history of humanity is that humans have migrated from place to place since the first humans left Africa. When a group of humans encountered another group, they would at first be on good terms with the people they encountered, maybe conduct trade and adapt to local customs. But, when the numbers of the new arrivals reached a certain level, they went from migrants to invaders and then to conquerors. The progression has always been traders, raiders and then conquerors.

That’s why when our ruling lunatics howl about being nations of immigrants, what they are really saying, even though they are too fevered to know it, is that we are nations of conquerors. The tribes in place today, at some point pushed out or wiped out the tribes that were there yesterday. It’s not always the case. Some times the natives muster the will to thwart the raiders and discourage further incursion. Sometimes, like the Late Bronze Age Egyptians, they just the will to resit the conquerors and maintain their culture.

But first you have to want it." --The Z Man

The People of the Bubbles

Imagine you are flying over an American suburb in Middle America, say in Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, or Pennsylvania.

You hover over a cul de sac, where kids ride tricycles and Moms share a glass of wine after work and chauffering their charges around to soccer practice.

In fact, you can see that most of the homes are inhabited by two-parent families. If you asked the parents' primary motivation for living in suburbia, most would tell you they've moved for the K-12 education the local school district affords.

These families have also moved for a certain quality of life, mobility and access to grocery stores and malls. Life for many is relatively easy. Certainly there are worries: how to pay for college 10 years hence or how to fund the roofing contractor who says he can fix the worsening leak in the family room.

For good or bad, these families are living in a bubble of our society's creation. Problems in this bubble are those of the First World.

QOTD: "Democrats, you want to know why you lost to Donald Trump? Because people who are looking to survive tend not to rely on people that act insane. But, by all means, keep it up if it means the country doesn’t have to suffer under your policies that seek to grow a sector of the economy that doesn’t actually produce anything but keeps you in fat paychecks and mansions.

Just, for the love of God, don’t hurt anyone." --Sarah Lee
