It's May 14 and news is breaking on the corruption in the Obama administration, and once again The Daily News is nowhere to be found.

Unmaskings, last-minute sabotage by administration officials all the way up to the top but, alas, nothing to be found on these pages.

Better never do away with the puzzle page.

And on the list of who requested the unmasking: Joe Biden.

Carlos Ponce

And we've only seen the tip of the iceberg of OBAMAGATE![scared]

Bailey Jones

Still waiting on that FBI report that's going to send Hillary to jail. Still waiting on that windmill cancer study. Still waiting on that Giuliani Ukraine investigation to lockup Biden & son. Still waiting. But while I wait, AP News has a good article on media coverage of the "obamagate". https://apnews.com/9e131071e1b6f7d070a4badba5db8614

Carlos Ponce

Don't worry, Bailey. The FBI report is there but director Comey did not pursue it. On the other hand, Special prosecutor John Durham will!

If Bailey had his subpoenaed cell phones smashed to pieces he'd be in jail. Can you say "DOUBLE STANDARD"?

Bailey Jones

If I had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI I'd be in jail.

David Hardee

Bailey, If you stand on the truth would sacrifice your son to prosecution? A long hard deliberation!

Carlos Ponce

"If I had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI I'd be in jail." His lawyers at the time insisted on it. They have strong ties to Eric Holder.

"General Michael Flynn obtained attorneys from Covington to represent him in the filing of a FARA form in December of 2016, shortly after the 2016 election. A few months later, General Flynn’s life was turned upside down and he hired Covington to represent him in charges being leveled by the Mueller gang. Eventually, the Covington lawyers working for the General coerced him to sign a guilty plea on charges he did not believe he was guilty of performing."

Eric Holder was a law partner at Covington.

Bailey Jones

I admire you Carlos, I really do. I've tried my whole life to see the world as I imagine it to be, not as it actually is. But I've never been able to generate that level of self-delusion. Kudos. I'm genuinely envious of the comfort and self contentment that must bring to you.

Carlos Ponce

"But I've never been able to generate that level of self-delusion." Thanks for the laugh, Bailey. What I posted is fact, not delusions. If you don't like the source you can the same information elsewhere.

FACT: Eric Holder was a partner in Covington and still has ties to that law firm.

FACT: Covington has given plenty of money to the Biden campaign.

FACT: Flynn's original lawyers are Covington partners.

They misled him and convinced him to enter a guilty plea. He has since dropped those clowns.

Bailey Jones

So, according to your facts, Flynn is an idiot who hired his political enemies as his defense team, and then paid them millions of dollars to get him convicted of perjury. Trump calls him a "patriot". He got the last three letters right.

Carlos Ponce

It must have been a White House Deep Stater who recommended the law firm.

Gary Scoggin

Obviously so. What other explanation could there be.

I was watching a ceremony Obama attended once while he was President where he publicly ridiculed Trump for a critique of his dealings. He smarted off by ending his comment saying, "Well @realdonaldtrump,...at LEAST I can always say I WASSSS President!" ( meaning that Trump would never be able to say the same thing ), He then dropped the microphone he was speaking in ....to bang on a table or stand! The crowd went wild! What is that "thang" Old East Texas Folks use to say about Karma? I will bet he wished he had held onto that microphone! I give Obama credit though, ..If you cannot beat him, then cheat him, lie on him, persecute him, SPY on him, contrive a HOAX on him, change or fake FISA WARRANTS on him, call in allies to send spies, to stalk Trump supporters, attack his children, even Barron, have him harassed and investigated by DEEP STATE operatives, leaders, and fake whistleblowers, whatever, but get that ($**&#÷) out at all cost! Got give him his due! We now know that he definitely was not, and he is not the tall, squeaky clean individual everybody thought he was, and Joe Biden ....well I have no words fitting enough to describe him.

domenico nuckols

Show me the crime(s). Show me the investigation(s). Show me the proof!

Carlos Ponce

The proof is in documentation now in the hands of Federal Prosecutor John Durham who had to expand his staff to encompass all the Obama Administration era corruption.

Charles Douglas

Domenico asks, "Show me the crime!" You got that wrong! Let me tell you something,......I will show you the crimes if YOU or any other LEFTIST, show me the crime D.J. TRUMP committed justifying the way yall have harassed, lambasted, and persecuted him for over the last three years! Where is the crime? You tell us!!!! You and yours should be ashamed! Y'all have wasted over forty million dollars of taxpayer dollars, using unlimited resources, scouring the earth for anything yall could use to get rid of Trump, and you have NOTHING!!!! You have NOTHING!!!!!! The bad part of all this is yall could not find anything so yall sent in the clowns to set him up, and yall could not be successful at that either! Sad! Very Sad!

Gary Miller

Domenico> Pay attention. The process has started. Hopefully Barr and Duram will tie it together in a RICO charge.

Gary Miller

Domenico> John Durham is gathering the evidence for you. AG Barr will throw the book at most of the Obama officials so far un indicted.

Bailey Jones

That wasn't a "ceremony", it was the white house correspondents dinner - a comedy show and lampoon that presidents used to attend every year to honor their relationship with the 1st Amendment and the press - you remember, back when presidents had the good nature and self confidence to laugh at themselves and enjoy being made fun of. Trump has never attended - he's too much of a snowflake to allow himself to be made fun of.

David Hardee

Obama deserves gratitude for his service, especially when you consider his foundation. When communist parents abandon you to grandparents that also are communist, then schooled as an” any means justifies the goal” lawyer, influenced by Saul Alinsky, praying with Rev. Wright, associate with Democratic party's polluted Chicago cabal, totally unqualified but thrust into the Presidency by the dastardly Clinton mafia, and worshiped as the symbol of the cultural revolution’s success. President Obama despite the implanted infirmities was a decent man surrounded as president with indecent jackals. Standing in that storm of devious political operatives and a severely divided society this man, President Obama, kept a lease on the worst that surrounded him. But could not, like most, prevent being swept by the deep state into being infected with an association in their diabolical schemes. Thank fate and the prime mover it was Obama and not-President Hillary.

domenico nuckols

Yes

domenico nuckols

Show the proof not Sound bites not I’ll show you later

Kim Baldwin

Regardless of the indoctrination a "decent" man's conscience will question things that are wrong. There is no evidence that he "kept a leash on the worst that surrounded him". So, he is completely responsible for his actions.

David Hardee

KIm - your's are deeply valid observations. Maybe "very worst" will satisfy. No doubt "decent" is a learned attribute accumulated thru time and events. Then conscience "ID" is the summation that also includes primal instincts. Ask yourself - who am I? Who you are and adding the execution of the intellectual process (intentional) makes action your total responsibility. Impulse and excited actions lack the element of intentional. Ergo negligence caused the harm.

jimmy winston

Right now, it’s a joke. No real evidence, no real information. How can all of you not tell this is classic trump? He knows he’s handling the economy and the virus outbreak poorly, so he has to drum up something to take the heat off himself.

If anything comes from “Obamagate” I will personally send everyone in this comment section $100.

domenico nuckols

But Jimmy why isn’t everybody laughing. I agree nothing will ever come out of it

Carlos Ponce

domenico posts "I agree nothing will ever come out of it. " Now THAT'S FUNNY!

jimmy winston

But I thought Trump said sitting presidents cannot commit crimes??? How is he going to put Obama in JAIL?????

domenico nuckols

As usual

Dalton Logan

Jimmy, just make my check out to St. Jude's Children Hospital. Thanks in advance.

Make mind out and send it to "Wounded Warrior Project." I appreciate it!

Wounded Warrior Project is a corrupt organization with wasteful spending and very little % of its donations actually supporting veterans.

jimmy winston

Why would the RNC need my support? I thought President Business self-funded his entire campaign???? Since he is so rich and definitely not on the verge of bankruptcy

Gary Scoggin

So is “Obamagate” the President’s new strategy for getting re-elected? It’s not like he could run on his record. Or his behavior.

Carlos Ponce

No, Gary Scroggin, revelations from Obamagate will not change any die hard Liberal's mind come November. The goal of revealing Obamagate is JUSTICE. Trump's record is darn good. You always call yourself a moderate, willing to listen to both sides. But when you post I can hear braying. "Hee Haw, It’s not like he could run on his record. Or his behavior. Hee Haw".

Gary Scoggin

Crarlos, you wouldn’t know a moderate if he bit you. I am always willing to listen to both sides. That’s one reason for hanging around here - to see how the far right is thinking.

Carlos Ponce

I know a Leftist when I see, hear one or read his posts.

I'm in line for my $100, Jimmy. It is just the beginning of the disclosures. It ain't over 'till it's over. Until Kate Smith (the fat lady) sings will it be over.

"There is none so blind as he who will not see..."

Bailey Jones

It's pretty obvious where Pete gets his "news". And it's not from a newspaper.

Dalton Logan

You are correct, he will not get it from this paper. The owners of the paper will make sure of that.

Carlos Ponce

"And it's not from a newspaper." That is so sad when newspapers do not give or cannot give us news. But if the AP doesn't provide it, GCDN cannot print it. But AP does provide us with Leftist slanted articles which includes FAKE NEWS. Time for an alternative to AP which which will have REAL JOURNALISTS, not Leftist pundits.

Gary Scoggin

I read the GDN for the local news. There are plenty of sources out there for national and world news. And you can pick your own slant. I would much rather the GDN focus their limited resources on local stories than wasting time curating the AP feed to make the right-wingers happy.

Dalton Logan

Seems like there is no problem 'curating' the AP feeds for the left wingers[wink]

Make your check out to the Hitchcock ISD Education Foundation, PO Box 82, 7801 Neville, Hitchcock, Texas 77563

Looking forward to your donation!

jimmy winston

If we funded our schools properly, I wouldn't have to make this donation!

Carlos Ponce

Let me explain to you about funding. The year before, a teacher submits a proposed budget for his or her subject to the department head listing vendor and price. It goes through the Department chair, the principal and then to Central Office which approves or not of each item. The superintendent then submits it to the school board for approval. Chances are most items are approved. But capital outlay projects costing hundreds or thousands of dollars are put on hold depending upon money available. If Big Jimmy doesn't pay his taxes then Little Jimmy's class has to do without. These can be picked up by the education foundation.

Also a new teacher inherits what the previous teacher requested. New teacher knows of a fantastic project that will help out his or her students. Now new teacher can wait until the end of the year and place it on budget request but that doesn't help his or her students now. Education Foundation can help out.

Also during the year a teacher hears of or sees a teaching module, kit, etc. Next year or now?

Teachers submit requests to the education foundation. A committee votes and allocates what they can. Those that don't meet the first cut are given a second chance - requests submitted to benefactors to pay for the item.

Jimmy's $100 will come in handy.

Paula Flinn

Flynn failed to disclose he was a foreign agent when he was vetted. During the transition period Flynn was already talking to Russians, so President Obama, who had just imposed sanctions on Russia, was within his rights to ask the FBI to investigate him.

Carlos Ponce

"During the transition period Flynn was already talking to Russians, so President Obama, who had just imposed sanctions on Russia, was within his rights to ask the FBI to investigate him."

What you omit is that Obama asked his own people if they had contacted representatives of foreign adversaries in 2008 during his transition period. All had.

Gary Miller

Paula> Flynn was doing his legitemate job when he talked to Russion Amb.

Gary Miller

Paula> Flynn was talking to Russian Ambasaders as part of his legitiate job. More honest than the FBI criminals that interviewed him.

Pete Nanos

You have to be a true intellectual to think that a paper that can't properly relate national news can somehow relate local news. The GDN should get out of the news business and start publishing puzzle books.

Mike Zeller

Pete Nanos has an agenda, and all you guys fell right in line. It has nothing to do with Obama corruption and everything to do with this newspaper. (must be something personal)

Diane Turski

This nonsense is just another distraction by Trump and his own corrupt cronies. Typically, I notice that it coincides with President Obama's televised address to the 2020 graduating class. President Obama's address will be broadcast at 7 PM CDST on Sat. evening, May 16, on ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX. Tune in if you miss hearing how a real President speaks to the American people!

Carlos Ponce

Give Obama a teleprompter, a pre-written script authored by someone else and he'll do an excellent job. Reminds me of Professor Irwin Corey.

Mike Zeller

Do the same for Trump and the White House will have to correct what he couldn't even read correctly. [tongue]

Carlos Ponce

Trump has had teleprompter snafus but he ad libs pretty good. Trump is not as gifted an orator as Barack Obama but he knows how to to pronounce "corpsman". It's not "corpse man" as Obama pronounced it.

Dan Freeman

Obama administration in 8 years had 2 indictments for felonies, both generals for intelligence violations. In the more than three years of the Trump administration there have been no additional indictments. President Trump’s administration has had 39 indictments, and 10 felony convictions or pleas. There is no “Obamagate” except on the dark web.

Carlos Ponce

So Dan Freeman is saying the Obama administration is better at covering up their misdeeds. And there's AG Eric Holder found in contempt of Congress. They tried to take care of that but Obama withheld documents under Executive Privileged. Fast and Furious resulted in the death of an American U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Jaime Zapata and numerous deaths of civilians and law enforcement officials in Mexico.

So during the Obama administration his people could get away with murder.

Charles Douglas

Mr. PONCE, I don't believe they were necessarily trying to cover up because the things they did would never be reported on anyway! They have the LEFT wing Fake News packing water for them! Nobody bothered to investigate Obama's famous open microphone proclamation whispered to a Russian official, " Tell Vlad, ( Not Vladimir ) ...but Vlad...that I will have more flexibility after my next election!" Tell me one Liberal Fake News Outlet who said, "Wait a minute, what are you going to do with more flexibility with Vlad?" Trouble with the left is they think food stamps, welfare, and Sanctuary Cities will satisfy all inquisitive minds, and stop all provocative questions! They still want minorities to shut up, look toward the ground, vote Liberal, and those government handouts will keep coming! That is how they keep you quiet and uninformed! Happy to say there is a new movement taking place now. The Jim Clyburns and Maxine Waters are drying up little by little! In their places we are seeing people like Candance Owens, Lawerence Jones, John James the Michigan Fighter Pilot, running for office, and Dr. Robin Armstrong ...right here in Texas City who was being honored in the Houston area yesterday for his excellent work! To many minorities are running around looking down & back when they should be looking Up, then Forward! Promotion comes not from the East, West, or South, But God is the judge: he putteth down ONE and setteth up another! (Psalms 75:6-7) One of the LEFT'S greatest weapons used to keep minorities in check is the lie saying, "You guys are victims!" "Y'all are to far behind to catch up!" "Let us get you some REPARATIONS for what was done in slavery times!" SAN FRAN NAN wants to give me 2-3 thousand dollars a month, ..but she cares about the debt now! Yeah right! Her time is almost over, and I think AOC and Ilhan Omar will see to that!

Pete Nanos

Wow, Mr. Zeller. More liberal projection. You are actually the one with an agenda. All I'm doing is pointing out the obvious. This paper has, for years , carried water for the left while ignoring their criminal behavior. When they do report things, it's presented in a deceitful and deceptive manner so as to put forth a narrative that puts conservatives or more importantly, this president ,in a bad light.

Stuart Crouch

Dang, I'm a little late to the party! I just don't have it in me to read all of the conspiratorial babble on this one, though it has become quite predictable. "Obamagate"....hmmmph...that's a catchy one. Let's see, y'all needed that Benghazi thing for a while; the Pizza-gate thing was there and gone, though not before being acted upon by one of your nut-job 'patriots' with a weapon, in search of Hillary and the kids in the basement; then it was HRC's Blackberry, her server, Cloud Strike, Big Biden-this, Little Biden-that, Hillary-again, let's try "Obamagate" and see if that sticks! For the love of god, get a mirror and see what you've become!

Your fearful leader is tweeting out conspiratorial catchphrases to ignite his base of buffoons, coincidentally at a time when everything else he has touched has turned into a giant cluster. Jeez, y'all just can't see yourselves and how you have devolved. It's hilarious in a way, but on a much deeper level, it is truly sad. I would have never suspected that feeling so marginalized and forgotten; overlooked and set aside, after all that you, your ancestors and your ilk have done for this country, by god! Losing 'that war' aside, now you have your 'voice'; your 'fearless leader', to champion your cause and restore the rightful, ordained order of things around here. He's given the orders to "liberate" your states. Yes, the people's champion!...of all things NASCAR, which you can't spell without using "NRA", which you can't spell without using "AR" (as in "-15", the sportiest of sporting, hunting long-guns that never kill people). It's all gonna come together for ya now, baby! Lock & load! Woohoo!

The bad news? You're taking on water. You're sinking. Your boy knows that he is. "This just can't be happening!", he cries! "But, but, but....my economy!" He's trying all of his tricks to razzle-dazzle everyone and blaming just about anyone he can come up with to cover for his ineptness and incompetence. This pandemic catastrophe falls squarely on his Chinese suit's padded shoulders. Defer and deflect, displacing the responsibility and blame onto others at every opportunity. It's a conspiracy against him, fo' sho'! It's the same old tired antics that the sane people in this country, and the world, have had to bare witness to for 4 years. Why so many of you get sucked into his vortex of stupidity, lies and blame-game is beyond me.

The original author of this particular letter to the editor seems to be taking exception to an alleged lack of satisfactory reporting on this newfound malfeasance that is "Obamagate". You can almost hear Hannity's voice leaking from his headphones as he whines about what should be a worthy news topic (because he was told that it should be). Here's a news flash for those that can read it, "Obama-anything" is a non-story, princess. Your walking, talking failure of the free world is desperate and he's grasping at anything that can serve as a lifeline for his terminally-ill political career. His only term is headed for hospice care; No worries, as Obamacare (that he just never seemed to be able to replace with his 'something so much better') will certainly help with that!

I'm guessing you folks will be okay with whatever else happens and whomever needs to be blamed for his inevitable screw ups. It is entertaining to watch how so many of the same cast of characters assemble in these forums to harmonize their thoughts and attune themselves to the proscribed position of the day. Somebody kicks the ant bed and here all of you come, ready to defend your boy and his latest gaffe, using whatever skewed logic, edgy retorts and canned responses you can muster. If nothing else, it keeps you out of the bars!

David Hardee

in this case - better never than late. Your humongous diatribe of quips and supposition laced with sarcasm contributed zero except purging a highly prejudiced mind. Whether pro or con on the subject a single-sided diatribe reveals sever lack of intellectual evaluation. Every one of the suppositions you recite is mirror-imaged for the other side. There is no contest (value) in a one horse race.

Carlos Ponce

Stuart, it's sad that no matter how much is revealed, how many of Obama's people are indicted, there are those who will never believe. Did you light a candle at your Obama shrine? There's a donkey down the road. I think I'll name him.....[beam]

Ted Gillis

I have a feeling that this “Nongate” Obamacare is just a ploy. They do not plan to bring charges on anyone of these people. They just want to make noise about it now, so that when next year comes around and Attorney General Harris starts to starts investigations up on Trump’s team, they can all claim foul and say that it’s not right for a current administration to go after a previous administration.

Senator Graham has already stated that he will not call for president Obama to testify in front of the Senate.

Obamagate is their insurance.

Ted Gillis

Sorry my phone corrected Obamagate to Obamacare. See even spellcheck knows it’s fake!

Carlos Ponce

Ted Gillis posts, "Obamacare is just a ploy". Looks like your phone is smarter than you.

I can see Ted at the phone store: "You sold me a Republican phone!"

Sheila Dillon

Agree... don't get rid of the puzzles and Biz Buzz. They are the only reasons I still get this paper after 50 years as a devoted subscriber. SMH

Ted Gillis

They told me they were all out of left handed phones.

Gary Miller

I do not subscribe to the CGDN expecting a liberal staff in a liberal city to provide real news. Local news, slanted left, is as much as can be expected. There are hundreds of non partizen outlets where I get national news. left leaning AP is rarely used.

Ted Gillis

Gary, then why do you use the GDN comment platform? Post you comments on one of those hundreds of outlets you claim exist and leave this one alone. Spare us all from your miserable life please.

Ted Gillis

And it’s not only you Gary. I’be seen several others comment that the only thing they subscribe to the GDN is for the BizzBuzz section, comics and crossword puzzles., but I see very few of comment on such. Give a Kudo to the reporters every now and then than brings that news to you. And I never see any of you commenting about Charlie Brown Snoopy or or asking each other what they think the answer to 9 across is.

So we know you’re lying.

And god forbid if Dolph sends in a letter from retirement. The poor guy gets excoriated for allowing a COM teacher from way back when to write guest columns in his newspaper.

Leonard has allowed all of you nut bags a chance to do the same, so give it a rest!
