Fox News: Op-Ed: “Victims of 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' land in ICU after Putin freakout -- Here's my prescription”

As soon as President Trump concluded his successful summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland on Monday, the Washington swamp and liberal media launched a concerted effort to falsely portray our president’s positive foreign policy achievement in the most negative light possible.

The rabidly anti-Trump reporters covering the summit were single-mindedly obsessed by the collusion myth – determined to prove that the Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia to help Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential race, despite no real evidence to support this cockamamie theory.

Sadly, the media had little interest in delving into important issues that Presidents Trump and Putin discussed, including nuclear nonproliferation, destroying ISIS, ending the civil war in Syria, preventing Iran from building atomic bombs, and the security of Israel. Reporters could barely acknowledge the positive sight of former Cold War adversaries talking about peace and areas of agreement.

Instead, like hunters searching for the Holy Grail, the Abominable Snowman, Bigfoot or a herd of unicorns, reporters at the summit were determined to prove the existence of something that doesn’t exist – a grand conspiracy orchestrated by the Kremlin that put Donald Trump in the Oval Office.

Fox News Op-Ed: At the NATO summit, Trump is standing up for fair treatment for America

President Trump is in Europe, attending a two-day NATO summit in Belgium as part of a trip that will include meetings with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The American political establishment has learned over the past 18 months that with President Trump in office, business as usual is over. The international political establishment is now finding this out as well.

Countries in the European Union and Asia in particular are coming to grips with the fact that President Trump is fighting for fair trade and security for our citizens – putting "America First."

The United States has spent the seven decades in the post-World War II era going above and beyond the call of duty in providing security and financial aid around the world. Since 1949, our steadfast allies in NATO have gotten used to America doing more and more for everyone, while expecting little in return.

Over the course of the past 20 years or so, the American people have grown weary of their government prioritizing seemingly everything but the hardworking American taxpayer. These are the forgotten men and women who wake up early every day, go to work, pay their taxes on time, and take care of their families. Fighting for these folks is a big part of the "Make America Great Again" Trump doctrine.


The Hill Op-ed: Who really wants to abolish ICE? Surely not the American people

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, commonly known as ICE, began operations in 2003 as a result of a major reorganization of the federal government in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America that murdered nearly 3,000 innocent people. In a dangerous world, ICE's main objective, plain and simple, is to keep the American people safe and secure. With 20,000 courageous employees, ICE's mission centers on "smart immigration enforcement, preventing terrorism, and combating the illegal movement of people and goods."

After that horrible September morning almost 17 years ago, I witnessed something truly inspiring. I saw Americans from all walks of life come together and unite as a grieving nation. I watched as our government leaders moved forward together and make important decisions so that such a heinous act would be less likely to happen again.

The Senate overwhelmingly passed the Homeland Security Act of 2002, which paved the way to establish ICE, by a margin of 90-9. This consequential measure enjoyed the broad support of conservatives like former North Carolina Sen. Jesse Helms and Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, and liberals like California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, and even former New York Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Reasonable people can plainly see that ICE officials are under immense pressure on a multitude of fronts each and every day. They cannot let their guard down for one minute. President Trump thoroughly understands this and has been working with congressional Republicans for months to try to come up with commonsense solutions to reform our immigration system to help ICE do its job of keeping Americans safe. But the Democrats have been nowhere to be found. They do not seem interested in compromise simply because of their juvenile dislike of President Trump.

Fox News: David Bossie on IG report: Some FBI employees desperately wanted to stop Trump from being elected

A week ago it was reported that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz would finally be releasing his report on how Obama-era leaders at the department and the FBI badly botched their 2016 investigation of Hillary Clinton’s serious mishandling of sensitive government emails when she was secretary of state. But it seems that once the release date became public, deep state actors and the Trump-hating media went to work.

A strategic leaker fed an unverified rumor to the media Wednesday about President Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to distract the public from focusing on the highly inflammatory and damning IG’s report that was issued Thursday. This political tactic is used routinely, but Americans are smart enough to recognize that is was part of the left’s coordinated witch hunt to take down President Trump.

Now that the IG report has been made public, the American people can see the truth for themselves. The truth is that certain high-level bad actors in the FBI wanted desperately to stop candidate Donald Trump from becoming president of the United States.

One new text message disclosed in Horowitz’s report is a smoking gun. On August 8, 2016, FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were romantically involved, exchanged a text that confirmed our worst nightmares.

Fox News: David Bossie: Much-anticipated Inspector General's report on DOJ, FBI comes out this week -- then what?

By David N. Bossie | Fox News (06/11/2018)

Department of Justice Inspector General (“IG”) Michael Horowitz’s report will finally be made public on Thursday of this week. After an investigation that’s lasted well over a year, I’m cautiously optimistic that the report will answer many questions about the Federal Bureau of Investigation under former Director James Comey and Acting-Director Andrew McCabe and the Justice Department under former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. This report may also help restore some of the American people’s trust that was lost in the FBI and DOJ over the controversial investigations surrounding the 2016 presidential election.

However, as a veteran of Washington, this is not the first highly anticipated government report that I’ve waited on. Once the media drumbeat begins, expectations can build and this time is no exception. The inflammatory allegations that are under investigation are driving public interest. But IG reports are infamous in this town because sometimes they leave you frustrated and wanting more information, like in the case of the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi. More times than not they’re short on details, and are usually remembered for what information was redacted or edited as opposed to what actually ends up being disclosed.

That being said, I believe that Inspector General Horowitz understands this is not your everyday IG report that will be thrown into the circular file and forgotten about in a hot second. He must know that he has got to do everything in his power to get this right. The American people want and deserve accountability. After such a long and drawn out investigation, this report must be seen as thorough. If the highlights of the investigation are only that James Comey was “insubordinate” in his actions and Loretta Lynch is “rebuked” for her handling of the Clinton case, that won’t cut the mustard. Americans from coast to coast are eager for serious consequences and criminal referrals, like the one sent to the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia concerning Leakin’ Andy McCabe.

There are scores of questions, subject areas, and allegations in play. The central question in my opinion is did Hillary Clinton and her cronies get preferential treatment in her email server investigation for political reasons? If Horowitz finds evidence of this, the natural question is, will there ever be an impartial investigation of the Clinton email scandal and by whom? This is why I along with many others have called for a second special counsel in this case.

Other pressing questions center on James Comey’s infamous exoneration memo that we now know was written months before Hillary Clinton’s FBI interview, as well as what Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton really spoke about during their secret obstruction of justice summit on the tarmac in Phoenix.

There are also many unanswered questions concerning FBI official Peter Strzok’s text message about an “insurance policy” to investigate the Trump campaign and another text that states former President Obama “wants to know everything we’re doing." As you may recall, President Obama went out of his way to ensure the public that the Hillary Clinton email investigation was free from any White House political influence. This text says something entirely different, which leads to the question: what did Barack Obama know and when did he know it?

Fox News: David Bossie: Sorry, Democrats, primary results prove that Trump’s agenda is a smash hit

The results in Tuesday's primaries in eight states are an early indication that President Trump's "America First" agenda and accomplishments are winning the support of the American people. This is good news for Republicans running in the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

The Trump agenda of economic growth, job creation, border security, and peace through strength abroad is causing voters to seriously consider the consequences of supporting candidates who carry the Democratic mantle of tax hikes, protecting sanctuary cities, and the hyper-partisan and baseless impeachment witch hunt.

In California, it will be hard for Democrats to point to evidence that a blue wave is coming in November. In congressional districts 39, 45 and 48 – all key pieces of the puzzle for a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives – Republican candidates received over 50 percent of the vote in the “jungle primary” system.

With Democrats clinging to a meager 3 percent advantage in generic ballot polling averages, picking up the 23 House seats necessary to win a Democratic majority looks like it will be more difficult than expected.

Democrats also failed in their quest to send two open-border liberals to the general election in the California gubernatorial contest. Republican businessman John Cox captured second place, due to strong support from President Trump.

Cox will be a strong advocate for the president's pro-growth economic record in California. This will be a sharp contrast to Democrat Gavin Newsom's ultra-liberal objectives, which will only continue California's charge into the abyss.

Also worth noting is that a Democratic state senator in California was recalled for voting for gas tax increases, costing California Democrats the supermajority in the Legislature necessary to raise taxes even more.

Fresh off one of the best jobs reports in years, voters came to the polls in the eight states where primaries were held with growing optimism and a feeling that there is reason to feel good again in America.

Fox News Op-Ed: State Department says it'll take 45 to 65 YEARS to get me info on its role in the 2016 election

For years my organization, Citizens United, battled the Obama State Department over dozens of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and lawsuits. It became common knowledge that if you wanted to get information out of the State Department in a timely manner, you had to go to court.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, it was Citizens United and Judicial Watch that pried open Foggy Bottom to expose Hillary Clinton’s emails and pay to play scandals at the Clinton Foundation.

Fast forward to today and we are still being forced to litigate with the “Deep State” Department. Unbeknownst to President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the State Department continues to stonewall our investigations by slow-walking the production of vital documents that might be detrimental to the left’s fake narrative of so-called Russian collusion with the Trump presidential campaign.

Last October, Citizens United filed a FOIA request for the emails and phone messages of former Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland. Our investigation is seeking to learn what role Nuland played in the Obama State Department facilitating the efforts of former British spy Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS in advancing the fake Trump dossier.

David Bossie: Pompeo vote is Democrats' latest unhinged stunt -- He should be confirmed as secretary of state

The effort by Senate Democrats to block CIA Director Mike Pompeo from being confirmed as secretary of state is just the latest political stunt that unhinged liberals are trying to pull. Our Founding Fathers did not design our constitutional republic with this level of obstruction in mind from the minority party in the legislative branch.

Pompeo recently traveled to North Korea to meet with that nation’s leader – Kim Jong Un – to lay the groundwork for denuclearization talks with President Trump. Kim subsequently announced Saturday that he is suspending tests of nuclear weapons and missiles, and closing a nuclear test site.

Democratic obstruction of Pompeo’s confirmation at this sensitive time – an effort led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. – is flat-out dangerous.

Pompeo has the trust of President Trump and is uniquely qualified to be our nation’s next chief diplomat. He was confirmed by this same group of senators as CIA director by a vote of 66-32 just 15 short months ago in January 2017. And he is highly regarded for his foreign policy intellect, experience and leadership skills.

Fox News Op-ed: The Trump army must march to the polls in 2018 and send a message to Democrats

By David N. Bossie | Fox News March 1, 2018

The announcement that President Trump has hired 2016 Trump campaign veteran Brad Parscale to manage his 2020 re-election effort is a master stroke of genius that accomplishes many objectives.

First of all, I know Brad well having worked with him during the 2016 campaign. He’s smart, he knows how to win, and he knows how the candidate works. He’s also a genius when it comes to digital and online communications, a space that all campaigns will focus more and more on in 2018, 2020, and beyond.

The timing of the Parscale roll-out is very savvy in that it eviscerates the fake news that pops up in the mainstream media from time to time speculating that perhaps the president would not seek re-election. This story is now dead as a doornail; President Donald J. Trump will be the Republican nominee for president in 2020 with an outstanding record of conservative accomplishments to run on.

It also sends the unequivocal signal that President Trump enjoys leading our great country that he loves, that he’s ready to fight for a second term, and that he is determined to see his entire Make America Great Again agenda enacted.

At two years and eight months until November 2020, can anyone question the president’s resolve and purpose when it comes to making the case to the American people for another four years?

The Hill: Bossie Op-ed: IG is our best hope for criminal investigation of Clinton dealings

During the summer of 2015, I called for an impartial nonpartisan special counsel to be appointed to investigate Hillary Clinton's private email server and related matters. It was clear to me that Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the time had a conflict of interest because President Clinton appointed her as United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York in 1999.

How does a political appointee like Lynch fairly investigate her party’s own frontrunner for president who also happens to be Bill Clinton’s spouse? My suspicions were correct. We now see that President Obama’s Justice Department was in the tank for Hillary Clinton all along. Since then, many lawmakers also have called for a special counsel for the Clinton case.

The secret tarmac meeting between Attorney General Lynch and President Clinton as Hillary’s email server investigation was reaching critical mass smacked of obstruction of justice. For me, it put an exclamation point on her obvious conflict with regard to investigating the Clintons. That this troubling episode didn’t trigger a special counsel told me all I needed to know. It seemed the fix was in for Hillary. I knew it. Donald Trump knew it. And tens of millions of Americans knew it.

Since then, we’ve learned that former FBI Director James Comey’s highly suspect public announcement that Clinton would not be prosecuted was just window dressing designed to fool the American people. Now we know that fateful decision was already being baked months before. Americans are right to be outraged when they see a person cleared of criminal wrongdoing before being questioned by law enforcement. This is preferential treatment by the elites, for the elites.
