Weekly Wrap-Up

Former FBI Director James Comey is in the news this week – and that, my friends, might go down as the understatement of the year. 

He’s cashing in with a new book tour, or “therapy tour” as conservative Rep. Claudia Tenney adroitly describes it, that has involved seemingly endless media appearances, which have not gone particularly well for him – and his book isn’t doing Comey any favors either. 

Comey is being described as everything from a “pathological liar” to “Bozo the Clown” who has written a “catty, gossipy” book, and his pro-Hillary bias is increasingly clear (as is the role CNN has played in trumping up accusations against our President).
More of Comey’s writings are in the news now with the release of his memos from meetings with President Trump – again, not all that flattering. Comey particularly enjoys pointing out how much people like him. 

What do you find most distasteful about James Comey? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll. 

With the FBI’s Andrew McCabe potentially facing criminal charges, this story is far from over – but what certainly needs to end is the left’s politicization of the FBI.

The time is now to confirm Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State – but Democrats are almost completely united in their opposition (with the exception of at least one red-state senator who is undoubtedly watching the polls). But of course Democrats don’t have any ideas for moving forward – they just hate President Trump, and they don’t want his foreign policy to succeed. 

What do you think is the biggest takeaway from the Democrats’ opposition to Mike Pompeo? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll.

This week Andrew Cuomo claimed he’s “undocumented” in order to out-left Cynthia Nixon (and also created a new voting bloc for himself), while Chuck Schumer is claiming to be some sort of principled federalist as a way to legalize marijuana. On issues like guns, education, or environmental policy, though, look for Schumer’s belief in states’ rights to go up in smoke. 

Finally, the world lost an extraordinary woman this week, as former First Lady and First Mom Barbara Bush passed away. She was one of a kind, and kind, by all accounts.  How will you remember here? That’s the third and final question in our new Weekly Poll. 

Have a great weekend!
