Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday let Eric Trump complain at length about the “political persecution” of his father after the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago , Donald Trump’s Florida home, reportedly in search of documents that may have been kept in violation of the Presidential Records Act. The former president’s son accused the Biden administration of orchestrating the raid, a claim that the White House denied, according to a Politico correspondent, saying it had no advance knowledge. “Sean, this didn’t come from the little local FBI field office in Palm Beach, Florida. You know who this came from. This came from one place and one building, and that is the White House in Washington, D.C.,” Trump said. “To have 30 FBI agents—actually more than that—descend on Mar-a-Lago, give absolutely no notice, go through the gates, start ransacking an office, ransacking a closet… they broke into a safe. He didn’t even have anything in the safe,” Trump claimed. “I mean, give me a break. And this … [Read more...] about Eric Trump Runs to Sean Hannity to Whine About FBI Raid on Mar-a-Lago

Despite some “headwinds” including an unusually strong dollar, a lighter-than-usual release schedule and several short-term expenses, Warner Music posted a solid third quarter of 2022, with a strong showing from its publishing division and 12% revenue growth that the company stressed would have been closer to 15% if not for the above factors.

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago billiards room in 2000. Photo: Getty Images When Donald Trump announced Monday that the FBI had raided Mar-a-Lago , looking for classified materials taken from the White House to the Florida estate and private club where he claims his legal residence , he mentioned as an aside the matter of a safe. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” he said, adding that, after “cooperating” with all relevant agencies, the “unannounced raid” was proof of “prosecutorial misconduct” from a criminal-justice system weaponized by his political enemies. “Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe!” Earlier Monday, Axios published photos that confirmed a report from Maggie Haberman’s upcoming book, Confidence Man , that Trump had flushed documents down toilets in the White House. … [Read more...] about What’s in Trump’s Safe the FBI Just Raided?
Illustration: Cold War Steve The worst place to be in Los Angeles during rush hour is the Sepulveda Pass, where a ten-lane segment of the 405 freeway runs through a mountain range. In 2016, Tesla’s Elon Musk was stuck there one day when he conjured up the idea to “start digging” the 16 or so miles from his Bel Air mansion to the headquarters of his rocket company, SpaceX, in Hawthorne, a small city near LAX. Two years later, dozens of people voluntarily drove themselves to the Sepulveda Pass on a Thursday evening to watch Musk publicly unveil his plan to burrow a tunnel underneath the freeway that would end, in his words, “soul-destroying traffic.” The audience gathered at the Leo Baeck Temple that night, many of them young men wearing hoodies branded with Tesla and SpaceX, saw two empty chairs on a small stage. Between them was a silver stool with a plastic pineapple that housed a snail named Gary , after the SpongeBob SquarePants character, an excavation expert who … [Read more...] about Elon’s Biggest Boondoggle
‘DARK TIMES FOR OUR NATION’ … DONALD TRUMP REVEALS BIDEN ADMIN RAID ON HIS FLORIDA ESTATE… TRUMP STATEMENT, 6:51 PM MONDAY NIGHT: These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate. It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections. Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. … [Read more...] about Editor Daily Rundown: ‘Dark Times For Our Nation’ … Donald Trump Reveals Biden Admin Raid on His Florida Estate

Levin called it the “worst attack on this republic in modern history.” Partial transcript as follows: HANNITY: On the phone line right now is the great one, Mark Levin. Mark, I quoted you earlier. You have said many times I’ve asked you about it a number of times, a post-constitutional America. Let me put your legal hat on and ask this question — is there any thing that you can possibly think of that warranted this raid on a former president’s residence as it relates to archives potentially of classified material when the president according to his son Eric was working hand in hand, in tandem with the Archives, people to get — to get them anything that they might need? LEVIN (via telephone): All right. First of all, I’m a former chief of staff to United States attorney general. We never … [Read more...] about Mark Levin: Trump Raid ‘Worst Attack on This Republic in Modern History, Period’
