IT IS ABOUT TIME COMEY WAS FIRED …
Upon the recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Donald Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey. This has been a long time in coming and it is about time. In typical hypocritically fashion, Democrats are suddenly up in arms after they had previously called for Comey’s head. It was just a couple of weeks ago that Hillary Clinton blamed Comey for her losing the 2016 presidential election.
Before you think that the Hillary email and private server scandal was the only thing that Comey botched, think again, there was more, much more. Comey should have been fired a long time ago; however, Obama did not have the CO-JONES to do so. Democrats know damn well they had lost confidence in Comey, they just have to show outrage to their constituents because they could never agree with something Trump did.
FBI Director James Comey has been fired, according to the White House.
“Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office,” the White House statement reads.
“President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions,” the statement continues.
Comey’s termination was read to him over the phone while he was traveling for the bureau in Los Angeles, two FBI sources told ABC News. He was there for a field office inspection and a recruitment event this evening that’s part of the FBI’s efforts to boost diversity. A separate FBI official told ABC News that Comey first learned of his firing by seeing news reports on TV. The official said Comey was “surprised, really surprised” and was “caught flat-footed.”
The letter from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein credits Comey with being “an articulate and persuasive public speaker about leadership” but goes on to note that he “cannot defend the Director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails, and I do not understand his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken.”
“Almost everyone agrees that the Director made serious mistakes; it is one the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives,” Rosenstein writes.
Rosenstein says in the letter that it was wrong of Comey to say that the investigation into Clinton’s private email server should be closed and that no charges should be issued.
The letter goes on to allege that Comey was wrong to later “hold press conferences to release derogatory information about the subject of a declined criminal investigation.”
I GUESS THIS WAS ONE WAY OF ENDING O’REILLY’S REIGN AS THE #1 CABLE TV NEWS SHOW …
For over 20 years at Fox News and 15 years as the #1 cable news show in America, Bill O’Reilly is out at Fox following a myriad of sexual harassment allegations against him. According to past NY Time reports, 21st Century Fox had repeatedly stood by him even as he and the company reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. The parent company fears there may be more. It is both hard and sad to believe the story of the rise and meteoric fall of Bill O’Reilly. How does one go from #1 and #1 by a mile and forever to out immediately? The allegations are there of sexual harassment and the stories are their of the LEFT’s agenda to destroy anyone on the right. My belief is like many stories like this, the truth lies some where in-between. I do not condone sexual harassment in any shape or form, but the LEFT needs to stop their selective approach to who they attack and try to destroy. Can we say Bill Clinton? Mum was the word from the liberal media and the LEFT when it came to the not sexual harassment claims, but sexual assault and even rape.
Bill O’Reilly’s reign as the top-rated host in cable news came to an abrupt and embarrassing end on Wednesday as Fox News forced him out after the disclosure of a series of sexual harassment allegations against him and an internal investigation that turned up even more.
Mr. O’Reilly and his employers came under intense pressure after an article by The New York Times on April 1 revealed how Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, had repeatedly stood by him even as he and the company reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. The agreements totaled about $13 million.
Since then, more than 50 advertisers had abandoned his show, and women’s rights groups had called for him to be fired. Inside the company, women expressed outrage and questioned whether top executives were serious about maintaining a culture based on “trust and respect,” as they had promised last summer when another sexual harassment scandal led to the ouster of Roger E. Ailes as chairman of Fox News.
Bill O’Reilly … The Spin Stops Here, literally
There is a note to the LEFT, Bill O’Reilly was far from a conservative as you claim. He was more a a centrist. In my opinion the story is a sad one all the way around as I believe their is truth on all sides. O’Reilly has an ego the size of Texas, it would be naive to think he did not say certain things and it appears that Fox News had an environment conducive to this type of behavior. Then again, she network tries to promote attractive individuals. No one knows the full truth. Upon being let go from Fox, O’Reilly issued a statement.
“Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television,” O’Reilly said.
“It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel.”
To end, I will say this probably could have been handled much better by all involved.
Rise of the Machines & Goodbye to $15/Hr Fast Food Workers … Burger Flipping Robot Is About To Start Work at a Fast Food Chain
WE WARNED YOU … THERE IS A REASON WHY THERE IS A MINIMUM WAGE AND SOME JOBS ARE MEANT TO BE ENTRY LEVEL.
As those who have minimum wage jobs in the fast food industry demand $15 an hour for a job that is meant to be entry level, along comes the obvious replacement to such absurd demands. Meet “Flippy” the new, efficient and non-complaining employee that is the replacement to those who flip burgers. What’s next, kiosks where you order your food and pay for it so that you actually can have an order done correctly.
This is what happens when you price yourself right out of the market and demand a salary that is not in line with the skill set that it takes to do the job.
The term “burger flipper” is often used as a derogatory way of referring to someone working a low-paying job (sometimes, but not always, literally flipping burgers) that is generally seen as the kind of gig that could be done by anyone. And that’s paraphrasing the politest definition on Urban Dictionary. But if you think burger flipping is more complex than the haters like to let on, science hasn’t done you any favors as of late: CaliBurger, a chain whose last sustained time in the spotlight was occurred because it was too much like In-N-Out Burger by In-N-Out Burger, is the latest restaurant to announce it’ll be using a burger flipping robot to handle grill duties.
Created by Miso Robotics, “Flippy” is billed as an even better alternative to using a lowly human being to upend burger patties in your commercial kitchen. According to a promotional video, “Flippy cooks burgers perfectly – every time,” implying whoever fast food joints have in their kitchens now are achieving less than perfection.
The burger flipping robot is also equipped with cameras and sensors that allow it “to see,” meaning it “collaborates in real-time” thanks to “intelligent Cooking AI software.” The video even boast that Flippy can “politely move out of the way” – you know, if someone rudely bumps into it screaming something like, “Damn you, Flippy! I need this job to pay my rent!” Oh, and unlike some fancy high school graduate who still requires training no matter how many AP classes he took, Flippy can “be installed in less than five minutes.”
BOYCOTT, WHAT BOYCOTT?
Despite a so-called boycott and Ivanka Trump’s fashion line being dropped by retail stores like Nordstrom’s, Belk and HSN, Ivanka’s fashion sales have skyrocketed. Honestly, who couldn’t see this coming. Ivanka’s clothing line was targeted by the far LEFT in an effort to attack the Trump family. Nordstrom’s and others like them that buckled to the political pressures of the LEFT are now the big losers. This is yet just another example of the far LEFT intolerance and their political extortion of business. Companies like Nordstrom’s can do as they please, they also must face the backlash and boycott of their company from those who do not agree with their choice.
Contrary to reports that shoppers are avoiding the first daughter’s fashion line to protest her father’s policies, the president of the company says recent sales are among the best in the brand’s history.
Abigail Klem, a former lawyer who has worked at Ivanka Trump HQ since 2013 and took over the role of company president in January, insisted that the brand has experienced a major boost.
“Since the beginning of February, they were some of the best performing weeks in the history of the brand,” explained Klem to Refinery29.com. “For several different retailers Ivanka Trump was a top performer online, and in some of the categories it was the [brand’s] best performance ever.”
MAKES ONE ALMOST WANT TO GO BACK TO A ROTARY DIAL LAND LINE OR BETTER YET, TELEGRAPH AND A PHILCO BLACK & WHITE TV WITH RABBIT EARS ANTENNA…
In the wake of the latest Wikileaks dump, several of the tech firms whose products have been allegedly compromised by the CIA have given their first reactions to the claims. Companies like Apple looked quell worries from their users by issuing a statement to TechCrunch designed to alleviate concerns that the company’s products might still be vulnerable to a laundry list of CIA exploits. In short, Apple maintains that many of the iOS vulnerabilities the CIA previously relied upon have already been patched.
Apple’s statement was the most detailed, saying it had already addressed some of the vulnerabilities.
“The technology built into today’s iPhone represents the best data security available to consumers, and we’re constantly working to keep it that way,” it said.
“Our products and software are designed to quickly get security updates into the hands of our customers, with nearly 80% of users running the latest version of our operating system.
“While our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS, we will continue work to rapidly address any identified vulnerabilities.
“We always urge customers to download the latest iOS to make sure they have the most recent security update.”
Samsung – whose F8000 series of televisions was reportedly compromised via a USB connection-based hack co-developed with the UK’s MI5 agency – was briefer.
“Protecting consumers’ privacy and the security of our devices is a top priority at Samsung,” it said.
“We are aware of the report in question and are urgently looking into the matter.”
The leaks also claimed that the CIA had created malware to target PCs running Microsoft’s Windows operating system.
“We are aware of the report and are looking into it,” a spokesman from Microsoft said.
Google declined to comment about allegations that the CIA was able to “penetrate, infest and control” Android phones due to its discovery and acquisition of “zero day” bugs – previously unknown flaws in the operating system’s code.
Likewise, the Linux Foundation has yet to publicly react to claims the agency had created “attack and control systems” that could hijack computers powered by Linux-based software.
The World Wide Web Foundation – which campaigns for internet privacy – said the US government needed to issue a detailed response.
