The Plot Sickens

Circa published a report today describing a “frosty exchange” between ex-FBI Director James “Drama Queen” Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
The information about the “exchange” came after Comey’s public testimony last Thursday.  In the private session, Comey recalled Lynch requested he refer to the FBI’s criminal investigation of Granny Clinton’s email scandal as a “matter” not an investigation.  Comey went on to tell senators of a second encounter where things got “frosty”.
“During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.” 
“Comey said ‘the Attorney General looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office,’ said one source who was briefed.”
Comey will go down in history as the FBI’s greatest drama queen since J. Edgar Hoover.  Just how tall Comey would be in high heels?

Comey admitted he leaked notes from his conversation with President Trump to the New York Times. He then cited federal employees who leak untrue stories to the press.  Commercials for Super Beta Prostate don’t feature this many men happily leaking away.

Poll Is Now Open: Begin Voting For The Fifth Annual Paul Revere Award

The number of small conservative blogs nominated since the inaugural award presentation in 2013 has tripled.  We here at Political Clown Parade are indebted to everyone who took the time to submit the names of blogs who are the modern-day offspring of the American Revolution’s pamphleteers—the brave and resolute men and women who feed our soul, who make us laugh about ourselves or life and restore our buoyancy in a troubled world.

The Paul Revere Award is dedicated to those bloggers who hold down jobs and raise their families while standing guard over liberty.  The icon for the award is American patriot Paul Revere who’s legendary “Midnight Ride” to warn the colonists of Massachusetts before the historic battles of Lexington and Concord played a vital role in America’s struggle to gain independence from Britain.

An obituary in the Boston Intelligence solemnly noted, “Seldom has the tomb closed upon a life so honorable and useful.”

Below you will find our poll.  You may cast your vote for multiple blogs but you will only be allowed to vote once.  We run a square house here.  Make sure you vote for all the blogs you consider your favorites.

Voting will close at 11:30 PM ET on Saturday, June 17.  The winners will be announced on Sunday, June 18.

The winners will be presented with a personalized award in the form of a badge which can be displayed on their website if they so choose.

Good luck to everyone!

Wonder Woman - A Review, Sort Of

'Wonder Woman' is the epic story of a man, a woman, a dog and a piano. Okay, you can forget the part about the dog and the piano. I wrote that before I saw the movie. I'm going to try to do this without any spoilers, but let me start by saying this is an above average superhero movie. If you just want to take my recommendation and go surf the web for Gal Gadot pictures, go ahead.

The first part of the movie is an obligatory flashback to Diana's youth. Young girl wants to be warrior princess, like her mom and her aunt and every other woman on the island. It could be worse. Remember the first Superman with Christopher Reeve? All that origin story needed was a guy in a headband tucking his baby boy into a rocket while the planet disintegrates around him. Five minutes tops. But, noooo! They hire a bloated Marlon Brando in a white wig, and build this long boring back story around him. Wonder Woman's origin is not that bad, however, if you can get past the whole "Zeus created man, gods walk the Earth and gave Wonder Woman her powers." I'm more of a mono-theistic kind of guy, but if I can believe in Hobbits and Orcs, I can suspend disbelief for a couple of hours.

Enter our intrepid male lead, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), American pilot/spy/Amazon boy toy, who crash lands next to the island, bringing a large portion of the German Navy with him. Kickass battle on the beach ensues and Diana, having now heard about WWI, decides that saving the world is part of her job description, so she's off!

The story is generally well written, well paced, well directed. There's a CGI-fest towards the end that may be more popular with directors and the popcorn crowd, but is frankly a matter of taste. More importantly, between the Origin story and the CGI denouement, is a very solid motion picture. Woman Woman is the proverbial innocent abroad, a stranger to the customs and habits of mankind. There's humor to be found in her naivety. Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman as a very confident hero, courageous to a fault, and acrobatically graceful in her slow motion fighting scenes. Supporting characters are well cast and well acted. Those who survive.

I can personally attest that the feminist complaint that...

Let’s Take A Moment To Point And Laugh At CNN (Again)

CNN was compelled to correct a spectacularly false Tuesday report after the release of ex-FBI Director James Comey's opening statement for his Thursday testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee contradicted the reports' “sources”.

The CNN report said Comey was expected to dispute President Trump's claims that Comey said he was not under investigation on multiple occasions.

The report titled “Comey expected to refute Trump" was based on unnamed sources and said Comey's conversations with the president "were much more nuanced," and Trump drew the wrong conclusion. 

The story was compiled by four CNN idiots, including Gloria Borger, Eric Lichtblau, Jake Tapper and Brian Rokus. 

Borger, the network’s Chief Political Analyst, claimed in an appearance on CNN Tuesday, “Comey is going to dispute the president on this point if he’s asked about it by senators, and we have to assume that he will be.  He will say he never assured Donald Trump that he was not under investigation, that that would have been improper for him to do so.”

Here’s the problem—his statement did mention the president was not under investigation.  In fact, he mentions it three, yes, three times.

Unnamed sources say the darndest things.

Twisted Knickers: It’s Back To The Drawing Board For Democrats

The Senate Intelligence Committee's hearing on Wednesday morning furnished one undeniable fact:  Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Dan Coats and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers resolutely maintained they had never felt or received pressure to act inappropriately.

"In the three-plus years that I have been the director of the National Security Agency, to the best of my recollection, I have never been directed to do anything I believe to be illegal, immoral, unethical or inappropriate," Rogers stated.

Coates declared, "I've never been pressured, never felt pressure to intervene or interfere in any way with shaping intelligence in a political way or in relationship to ongoing investigations."

Apart from the antagonistic and shameful inquisition by Democrats and perpetual RINO idiot John McCain nothing new emerged from these two intelligence officials.  Shortly after the hearing concluded ex-FBI Director Comey’s written opening statement for his Senate Intelligence Committee appearance was released.

In it Comey confirms that yes, he told Trump three times—just as Trump said, and just as "sources close to Comey" denied—that Trump was not the subject of any FBI investigation.

Unless Comey goes beyond his written statement on Thursday, his testimony is not likely to settle the question of obstruction with a definitive answer.  One man whose opinion I highly regard, George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, weighed in on the issue.

From the Associated Press:
Nothing he read in Comey’s statement persuades him that Trump violated the law by interfering with a federal investigation. 
Turley was referring to the entirety of Comey’s written statement, including his account of an Oval Office meeting in which Trump asked Comey to drop the investigation of former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn. Comey says Trump told him, “I hope you can let this go.” 
Turley says in an email that “the comments are grossly inappropriate,” but that “we do not indict people for being boorish or clueless.”
