In our opinion the content of the diary by former FBI Director James Comey, as outlined in what has formally been called “The Comey Memos”, is devastating to the U.S. Department of Justice and FBI. How do we know? Because the FBI is fighting like hell to keep even descriptions of the memo(s) content from becoming public.
I’ll give AG Barr the benefit of the doubt for now and lay the blame at the feet of the Asst. AG Jody Hunt.We’ll see.
Amid the controversy surrounding Nike scrapping plans for an American flag-themed sneaker, a U.S. Air Force veteran announced a new shoe he designed to benefit law enforcement officers.Ron Slagle, who now works as a police officer in Iowa, told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday that those who were hoping to buy the Nike shoe, which featured the original Betsy Ross American flag, should check out his “Honor and Respect” sneaker instead.Proceeds from the sale of his sneakers, which are black, white and blue, benefit Code 9 and Blue H.E.L.P, two organizations which seek to improve the lives of officers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.Slagle called Colin Kaepernick’s objection to the Nike sneaker, and his continued protest of the American flag, a “disgrace to the actual profession.””The Betsy Ross objection with the shoe for Nike translates into a loss of history,” Slagle said. “And I believe at times that’s the biggest loss we have is really knowing what the history about that is.”
You could tell Mad magazine was in trouble when President Trump hilariously compared South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg to Alfred E. Neuman, the perennial man-child cartoon mascot of the satirical publication – and Mayor Pete claimed he’d never heard of Neuman.”I’ll be honest. I had to Google that,” the 37-year-old mayor and candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination said in May in response to the Trump put-down. “I guess it’s just a generational thing. I didn’t get the reference. It’s kind of funny, I guess.” Someone who wants to be president of the United States has never heard of one of the major figures in American history? Amazing. But hey, odds are that Neuman has never heard of Buttigieg either. It’s a generational thing.

WASHINGTON — Flanked by armored vehicles and a coterie of senior military officers, President Donald Trump made a pitch at the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday: Join the U.S. military.It was an unexpected turn in an Independence Day speech in his “Salute to America,” an event he envisioned and planned. Steeped in military history and appreciation, the address lauded specific achievements in each service’s past, acknowledged the presence of Medal of Honor recipients in the crowd and urged youth to serve in uniform in the future.
“They and thousands before us served with immense distinction, and they loved every minute of that service,” Trump said of the veterans decorated for valor. “To young Americans across our country, now is your chance to join our military and make a truly great statement in life. And you should do it.”
The remark garnered some cheers from the crowd gathered before him. But it also hit on a reality for the Pentagon: Military officials are increasingly concerned about finding recruits. The challenges include increasing obesity across the nation, a growing economy that has provided other job opportunities, and an overall declining desire among young Americans to serve.
