About that DNC Lawsuit…

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

…don’t expect anything to really come of it.

In fact, you should expect it to occupy most of the fake news media attention over this weekend, quickly fade from view starting on Monday, and be withdrawn entirely within a few weeks.

The DNC did not make a legal move today by filing that lawsuit, it made a political move.  Democrats were getting crushed by the back-firing of the James Comey teen angst tour, the IG’s criminal referral on Andrew McCabe, and the news that the IG had opened a new investigation into Comey and the likelihood he illegally leaked classified information to the New York Times in the memos he fed to that fake newspaper through an intermediary.

On top of all of that, President Trump’s polling numbers this week are coming in at their highest point since his inauguration, and the Democrat edge in generic congressional polling data continues to narrow.

In light of all this terrible news, the Democrats had to take some action in advance of the weekend or have all this negativity dominate the Sunday talk shows.  So, they got the nitwits who run the DNC to file this lawsuit in order to give all of their willing dupes in the fake news media something else to obsess over throughout the weekend.

Yes, the DNC is so dead broke it couldn’t pay lawyers to run with this lawsuit if it wanted to, but think about it from their perspective:  This lawsuit gives all of the Democrat press agents in the fake media an excuse to spend the entire weekend doing nothing but re-hashing all of their fantasy theories about the Trump campaign “colluding” with Russia.

So, from a political perspective, it’s really brilliant, even if it is a complete non-starter from a legal perspective.

Seriously, the DNC could never even think about letting this “lawsuit” actually make its way into a courtroom, simply because of what they’d have to surrender in the discovery process.  The central claim in the suit is the demonstrably false claim that “Russia” hacked the DNC computer server and fed thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

Ok, so, the first thing the defendants do is subpoena the DNC computer server as part of the discovery process.  The second thing that happens is that President Trump pardons Julian Assange, who would then be free to travel to the U.S. and provide his proof that the emails WikiLeaks obtained were provided not by anyone from Russia, but by murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich.

Does anyone really think the DNC is going to voluntarily reopen that particular can of worms?  Well, ok, DNC Chairman Tom Perez is a raging Marxist moron, but he presumably has someone on staff who might point out these realities to him.

And really, that’s just for starters.  After all, the DNC fixed its own primary process in order to ensure the Pantsuit Princess would win its nomination.  It then paid millions of dollars to agents of foreign countries – including Russia – to dummy up the fake Trump Dossier, which it then used in an attempt to fix the general election.  These are all matters of public record at this point.

No, this was not a legal move today, and this is a lawsuit that will quietly go away in very short order.  This was a political move designed to give the fake hosts of the Sunday morning talk shows a shiny object to chase.  And trust me, with the possible exception of Chris Wallace at Fox News, all the fake hosts will thrilled to death to play along.

Because that’s what the fake news media does for its benefactors in the Democrat Party.

That is all.

Some Men Just Need Firing, and Rod Rosenstein is That Man

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Thursday was like last Friday, another one of those 5 news cycle days…

– Congressional criminal referrals against McCabe, Comey, Lynch and the Pantsuit Princess;

– The James Comey teen angst tour continues;

– The DOJ Inspector General issues a criminal referral on McCabe;

– Trump hires Rudy Giuliani to “help negotiate an end to the Mueller investigation,” according to Rudy;

– DOJ releases the vaunted “Comey memos” to congress, they immediately leak to the press.

..and that all happened by 5:15 Eastern Time.  Holy cow.

The Campaign Update covered both the Congressional and IG criminal referrals here and here, and we are sick to freakin’ death of talking about the drama queen ex-FBI Director’s teen angst tour, so let’s focus on those last two items this morning, because they are very crucial in everything that is going on.

First, the release of the Comey memos, those precious little tomes that the preening then-FBI Director claims he felt a pressing need to write in order to memorialize this interactions with the new President of the United States.  If you want to read them, just go Google “Comey memos” and trust me, you’ll get several million hits – the things are all over the place this morning, after having been held back by a stonewalling FBI and DOJ for the last year.

Here is the crucial thing to remember about these memos as you read them:  Both Comey and the oily Rod Rosenstein admit that what is in these memos formed Rosenstein’s justification for appointing Robert Mueller as Special Counsel.  Both of them have not only admitted this, they both have done so under oath in testimony before congressional committees.

Here is why that is important:  There is literally nothing in these memos that indicates even a smidgen of wrongdoing by President Donald Trump.  No indication – by Comey’s own admission – of obstruction of justice and no indication of any “collusion” with anyone from Russia.  No indication of any corruption, obstruction or unethical behavior by Mr. Trump whatsoever.

Congressman Trey Gowdy – himself a former prosecutor – as Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has been aware of what the memos contain for many months now, and he has spent those many months telling anyone who asked that the memos not only do not damage President Trump, they would actually be used as “Exhibit A by the defense” to clear Trump of any wrongdoing.  It turns out that Congressman Gowdy was 100% correct in that assessment.

What these memos do show beyond any doubt at all is that Rosenstein, as the man who appointed Mueller, has perpetrated one of the most massive frauds on the American public in history, and that Comey and Mueller have been accessories to that fraud.  In a just world, Rosenstein would be fired before this day is out, and a special counsel would be assigned to prosecute them for all the perjuries and other crimes they have committed in this endeavor.

But obviously it is not a just world, so Rosenstein will be allowed to slither on through his daily duties of absolutely refusing to supervise Mueller in any way, Comey will be allowed to continue his teen angst book tour, and Mueller will be allowed to continue his assault on the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 6th amendments to the Constitution.

Well, until, that is, Rudy Giuliani – America’s Mayor! – rides in on his white horse and “negotiates an end to the Mueller investigation,” as he put it himself.  If your initial reaction to that bit of news is to think, “What the hell?  Why should President Trump have to negotiate anything in this situation?”, well, join the crowd.

But here we are.  Rosenstein refuses to do his job, Mueller’s sitting there holding such a huge bag of nothing that many in the anti-Trump media speculated that he conducted his jack-booted raid on Michael Cohen in a desperate effort to get Trump to fire him, and the President is understandably quite anxious to put an end to the massive fraud that has thus far haunted his entire presidency.

The things to remember about Giuliani that are very pertinent to this matter are:

  • He’s a former U.S. Attorney himself, and knows how the processes within DOJ work;
  • He’s extremely adept at exercising leverage to get the things he wants to do done, which is what made him such an extremely successful mayor of New York City;
  • Perhaps most importantly, he has direct knowledge of evidence of criminal conduct by Hillary Clinton that was buried by Clinton cronies at the New York P0lice Department and New York City FBI Field Office. Think 600,000 Clinton emails showing up on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

So he has tons of leverage to exercise in a negotiation with Mueller, whose “investigation” is as much about protecting the Pantsuit Princess and his best buddy Comey as it is about anything else.  Mueller desperately wants to save face by snagging an interview with the President before closing up his shop, something the President should avoid at all costs, given that any interview with Mueller would be set up solely to try to catch Mr. Trump in some perjury trap.

Giuliani’s job will be to convince Mueller it is in his interests to let the thought of any interview with the President go.  Can’t think of anyone better to take on this assignment.

Just another day in Rod Rosenstein needs firing America.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Just Ran Out of Cover in the Andrew McCabe Case

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, now we know why Andrew McCabe needed that half million dollar legal defense fund.  The fired ex-Deputy Director of the FBI is really on a roll when it comes to having criminal referrals filed against him:  Yesterday, he gets one from 11 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, and today he gets one lobbed out in his direction by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

Bang!  Boom!  Pow!  It’s like he’s playing a bad guy in an episode of the 1960s TV version of Batman.

The IG’s referral is of course a follow-up to the release of his report last Friday which summarized the findings from his investigation into McCabe’s conduct, which showed that the deep state FBI guy had a serial “lack of candor,” i.e., he’s an habitual liar.

In truth, as I detailed in this morning’s Campaign Update, the referral from 11 Republican congresspersons carries little weight, and really covers ground Attorney General Jeff Sessions has already claimed to be covering.  But the referral from the IG is more crucial here, because it now leaves Sessions completely exposed, lacking any further excuse for delaying moving forward with prosecuting the guy who was one of the ring leaders of the anti-Trump deep state cabal that operated within the FBI and DOJ throughout 2016 and well into 2017.

Sessions has said all along that he has just been awaiting the IG’s report before determining whether prosecutions of anyone are really warranted in these matters.  Now, the IG has not just issued a report specific to one of the bad actors, he has quickly followed up with a criminal referral.  While that referral is directed to the U.S. Attorney who oversees the Washington, D.C. office for DOJ, that U.S. Attorney works for Jeff Sessions, and his actions are Sessions’ responsibility.

A referral from the IG does not necessarily mean that charges will be brought in the case – that decision falls to the DOJ and a grand jury.  But the IG has already presented an airtight case in a very public way, so if Sessions and his U.S. attorney fail to bring charges, they’ll need a very strong explanation why General Mike Flynn, a legitimate American hero who has spent his entire adult life defending this country, gets perp walked and indicted in a massive rush to judgment, but a deep state skunk like McCabe gets a walk after a painstaking investigation that dragged on for many months.

The other thing the IG’s action today accomplishes is to give us a preview of what to expect in May, when he will issue his findings from his more comprehensive, 15-month investigation into the massive wrongdoings by a variety of FBI and DOJ officials, as well as Hillary Clinton.  It should be fairly safe to assume the general process will be the same – first, the report, then a series of criminal referrals to DOJ.

And then the buck stops again right smack in the middle of Jeff Sessions’ desk.  Personally, I think that’s exactly where Sessions wants it.  But if I’m wrong in the assumption of Sessions’ good faith, he’s about to run out of anywhere else to pass that buck.

That is all.

In Three Weeks, America Will Find Out Who Jeff Sessions Really Is

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Florida Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis, along with 10 other GOP members of the House, sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday, detailing formal criminal referrals against James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch and Andrew McCabe.  While Sean Hannity and other conservative radio and TV talk show hosts played the letter up as if it is a momentous event, the truth is that it makes referrals that are already being acted upon by the Attorney General.

Sessions has already and repeatedly made it clear that he will act on these referrals and other potential criminal activity by former Obama officials after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz issues his final report detailing the findings from his 15 month-long investigation into potential criminal wrongdoing by deep state DOJ and FBI personnel during the 2016 election campaign.  That investigation also covers the FBI/DOJ handling of its sham investigation into the Clinton email scandal, and thus impacts every one of the Obama-era officials named in the DeSantis letter.

Here are some things we already know about all of this:

  • We know that the referral on McCabe is redundant at best, since it is related to the same claims of criminal wrongdoing that got McCabe fired in the first place, and the proof of which were detailed in the report issued by IG Horowitz specific to McCabe’s actions late last week.
  • We know without any doubt at all that the referral against the Pantsuit Princess, that she violated campaign finance law by failing to disclose the millions of dollars her campaign spent to fund the fake Trump Dossier, is valid and ought to be prosecuted by DOJ, if there is any such thing as equal treatment under the law in this country.
  • We know without any doubt at all that the referral against Comey, relating to his leaks of classified information contained in his memos to the New York Times is absolutely true, and ought to be prosecuted by DOJ.
  • We know without any doubt at all that the referral against Lynch, relating to her well-document threats of reprisal against a key witness in the Uranium One case, is absolutely valid and ought to be prosecuted by DOJ.
  • Finally, we know that Attorney General Sessions has appointed his U.S. Attorney in Salt Lake City, John Huber, to lead DOJ’s handling of all of these cases and more, and we know that Mr. Huber has been working on this assignment since at least last October, and possibly since July of last year.  We also know that he has had a grand jury convened for months now, and has been working in concert with IG Horowitz and his team of more than 700 investigators.

So what’s the point?  The point is that, while the DeSantis letter amounts to a bit of political grandstanding, it is not meaningless.  Every charge made in it is clearly valid, and the validity of every criminal act alleged in it is well-documented by now in the public record.

Sessions has been well aware of all of these things and much more for many months now.  He claims to have had Huber leading the DOJ charge to determine who will be prosecuted and on what charges.  Horowitz has informed congress that he plans to issue his final report in May, and is in fact scheduled to offer testimony related to that report before Trey Gowdy and the House Oversight Committee on May 8.  That would indicate that Gowdy has information that the Horowitz report will have been issued by that time.

May 8 is about three weeks from today.  Assuming all goes as scheduled, we will by that time finally have a clear answer to the question of whether Mr. Sessions is a real attorney general who is truly intent upon restoring the rule of law in this country after the previous eight years of abject corruption, or if he is just another deep state actor intent on preserving the status quo.

My bet is that we will find out that Mr. Sessions is a real attorney general, if only because the alternative is too horrible to contemplate.

Interestingly, when Mr. Horowitz offered testimony on unrelated matters before Gowdy’s committee on Wednesday, it was obvious that the ranking Democrat, Gerry Connelly, believes Horowitz’s report will be quite damaging to Democrats.  Connelly focused his questioning in a way that tried to portray Horowitz – who was hired into his job by Barack Obama – as a Republican partisan in an effort to start laying the groundwork for what will be the obvious initial Democrat/fake news media tactic after the IG’s report comes out.

Connelly thinks Sessions is a real attorney general, too.  If he didn’t, he wouldn’t feel the need to demonize Mr. Horowitz.  You should expect to see negative stories about Horowitz to start popping up in the various fake news media outlets in the coming days as well, as the fake journalists ramp up their demonization campaign in earnest.

Just another day in the Horowitz Report is coming America.

The Horowitz Report is Coming, and Hell’s Coming With it.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is reportedly telling people around him that he is at peace with the manner in which he has conducted himself in his tireless efforts to preserve the Washington, DC Deep State and take down a sitting president, and is prepared to be fired.

Well, cool.  President Trump should accommodate him.

Had the President taken this well-deserved action Friday morning, the story would have already been buried under at least four subsequent news cycles, because that’s how many the nation experienced in the last 24 hours.  Think about it, on Friday alone, our fake national news media took us through four major news cycles in a span of less than 24 hours:

  • The James Comey teenage girl diary cycle;
  • The Scooter Libby gets pardoned cycle;
  • The Andrew McCabe is one candor-lacking sonofagun cycle;
  • The Trump bombs Syria cycle.

On top of all that, those of us who live in Texas also went through the Dallas Cowboys cut Dez Bryant and thank God for that news cycle, a story that just a few years ago would have played out over 3-4 days, but in today’s world flashed by between 1:30 and 2:45.

So my continuing advice to Mr. Trump – which has been my advice about the oily Mr. Rosenstein since last June – is to go ahead and fire the clown.  He richly deserves it, and all the threats from Democrats and fake Republicans like Lindsey Graham that there would be terrible consequence for doing so is just so much noise designed to protect the establishment.  At the pace at which events are moving these days, it would all be a forgotten story within hours.

Just ask Paul Ryan, who no doubt thought his announcement that he would not be running for re-election would be huge news for days.  Ryan made his announcement on Wednesday – it seems like weeks ago.

In pardoning Scooter Libby, the President corrected one of the many dark errors left behind by George W. Bush.  Bush commuted Libby’s sentence – an atrocity created by the last out-of-control special counsel, Patrick Fitzgerald – but refused to issue him a full pardon, even though Libby had clearly done nothing wrong.  That Donald Trump had to correct Bush’s error 9 years later will forever remain a stain on Bush’s legacy.

In case you missed it among all the rapidly moving events of Friday, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz made two major moves in the span of a few hours.

The first and most important was the issuance of the report detailing the horrible conduct of the terminally dishonest Andrew McCabe.  The report is thorough and utterly devastating and completely shreds McCabe’s pathetic excuse-making that came in the wake of his well-deserved firing.  It clearly demonstrates that anyone who gave money to McCabe’s legal defense fund is a damn fool.  Awesome.

The second action Horowitz took on Friday was to send a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, notifying him of his intent to issue his report of his 15-month long investigation of DOJ/FBI abuse during the 2016 presidential campaign in May.  If that report is as thorough and devastating as the IG’s report detailing McCabe’s misconduct, then indictments and perp walks should commence shortly thereafter.  If that doesn’t happen, then we’ll know for sure that Attorney General Sessions is also a corrupt actor who needs firing.

In truth, the Deep State actors like Special Counsel Mueller and his best buddy Comey know that report is going to be devastating, which is why they’ve engaged in such a frenzy of activity over the last few weeks.  The goal is to create as much noise, chaos and doubt in the public mind as possible before the report is issued, and then pound on all the false narratives the media is creating right now as a means of distracting public attention from the real criminal activity the IG report will detail.

It won’t work, but it’s basically all they have left at this point.  In fact, it’s all they ever had to begin with.  While the seeds of chaos are sown very rapidly by our corrupt fake news media, their bite is ultimately toothless.

Meanwhile, the wheels of real justice turn very slowly, but the real consequences they ultimately produce are severe and unavoidable.

To paraphrase Kurt Russell in the great western Tombstone, the Horowitz report is coming, and hell’s coming with it.

Just another day in the Horowitz report is coming, and hell’s coming with it America.

That is all.

Robert Mueller’s Big Bag of Nothing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Those gun-banning Parkland high school kids have had a major impact on U.S. public opinion after all.  It turns out that they’ve convinced a record number of Americans it’s time to go out and buy a…wait for it…new gun!

Yep, most certainly as a direct result of the anti-gun posing by the insipid David Hogg and his fellow transparent back pack-carrying students – and of course, the media frenzy that surrounded them – gun sales set new records in the U.S. during the month of March.  The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) recorded an all-time high 2.7 million gun sales in March, during the same weeks in which CNN was filling its 24-hour coverage with panel after panel of anti-gun zealots and a couple hundred thousand high school kids and professional protesters marched on Washington demanding a ban on gun sales.

The fake news media would have you all believe there is tremendous support for repealing the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  The official government statistics would indicate otherwise.  Go figure.

A crazy woman named Nasim Najafi Aghdam shot up YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, CA on Tuesday, apparently because the videos she posted on that social media outlet had been falling in popularity.  Her videos were a mix of virulent animal rights and vegan eating screeds, along with what some are describing as “bizarre” musical parodies.

In other words, she was an animal-hugging, quinoa-eating activist who wanted to be Weird Al Yankovic when she grew up. Hard to imagine why that particular combination would not appeal to every American, right?  Ok, maybe not.

Anyway, the odd thing about the narrative we’re receiving from law enforcement on this incident thus far is that Ms. Aghdam – who committed suicide after injuring three YouTube employees –  was actually questioned by local police in the wee hours of the morning after her family had reported her to be missing.  According to the police report, Ms. Agham’s father actually informed the police that she might be going to the YouTube headquarters because she “hated” the company.

But when police came upon her as she was sleeping in her car near the YouTube campus, they simply questioned her and sent her along her merry way, and then called the father to tell him that all was well, nothing to see here.  Oops.

So, as with so many other recent mass shooting incidents, we have a situation in which law enforcement had been made aware of the shooter and did nothing to prevent the crime from happening.  What an incredibly disturbing pattern.

Things are getting a little weird over at MSNBC.  Ok, make that even more weird than they always have been at the leftwing fake news network.

Former Bush Administration pretend-conservative Nicole Wallace, who now barely even pretends to be sort of conservative anymore in her role as fake news host, was startled on air when, in the middle of an interview about the situation in San Bruno, she jumped when she thought she had heard gunfire in the studio.  It turned out that someone in the control room had opened a can of Coke.  Holy cow.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  

Meanwhile, in Trump/Russia Collusion fantasyland… – The fake news media will try to spin this as bad news, but Special Counsel Robert Mueller actually gave President Trump’s lawyers very good news in a recent briefing on his investigation.  The Chicago Tribune reports that Mueller informed Trump’s legal team that the President “remains under investigation” but “does not consider him a criminal target” at this point.

Mueller further said that he is “preparing a report about the president’s actions while in office and potential obstruction of justice”, and still wants to interview Mr. Trump before completing that report.  Taken all together, what all of this means is that, 9 months into his investigation, Mr. Mueller is holding the same big bag of nothing related to the President that he has held since last summer.  He is desperate to “interview” Mr. Trump in the hopes of catching him in some sort of inconsistent answer that he can then form into a process crime with which to charge the President.

Because let’s be honest here:  Process crimes – lying to the FBI, etc. – is all Mueller has brought against any American in this endless, abusive investigation.  Why?  Because there was no collusion with Russia by any Trump people – though we now know there was tons by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC – and Mueller’s efforts to muster up an obstruction of justice charge depend entirely on claims made by proven liars like James Comey and Andrew McCabe.

If Mueller were the honest and forthright individual the fake news media keeps claiming he is, he’d write his report, fold up his tent, and take the patriotic action of going home.  No one should expect that to happen anytime soon.

Just another day in Trump/Russia collusion fantasy America.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Don’t Need No Stinking Second Special Counsel

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Three weeks ago, on March 8, I pointed out that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had dropped a little bomb into the mix, one that hardly anyone in the fake news media managed to notice, when he told Fox News’s Shannon Bream that:

“I have appointed a person outside of Washington, many years in the Department of Justice (DOJ), to look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us; and we’re conducting that investigation.” 

At that time, the Attorney General gave no indication as to the identity of this “person outside of Washington,” but it was reasonable to conclude that said person was investigating the myriad very credible allegations that various members of the anti-Trump cabal within the FBI and Department of Justice had violated the FISA law during and after the 2016 presidential campaign.

Lo and behold, in the midst of a growing cacophony of demands by Republican members of congress that Sessions appoint a second special counsel to investigate the FISA abuse scandal, on Thursday Sessions sent a letter to congress in which he unveiled the name of that non-Washington person:  U.S. Attorney John W. Huber, who is based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Even better, the AG reminded congress that, in a letter way back last November 13, Assistant AG Stephen Boyd had already notified the legislative branch that Mr. Huber’s investigation was well underway:

Uh, well, all the Republicans in congress apparently failed to read that one.  No one in the fake news media gave it any notice, either.  But there it is, in black and white.

Oh, but it gets even better.  In his letter yesterday, Sessions also let it be known that Huber has been conducting his investigation in cooperation with…wait for it…Inspector General Michael Horowitz.  Another bomb dropped.

Hey, it gets even better than that.  It is probably not a coincidence that the Sessions letter to congress comes on the same day that fired ex-Deputy FBI Director and key anti-Trump cabal member Andrew McCabe created a legal defense fund for himself.   (Let’s all note the irony of a career federal employee who has somehow cobbled together a net worth of more than $11 million while making a government salary asking the little people to pay his high-powered lawyers for him.)

Nor is it likely a coincidence that McCabe’s move comes on the day after a Minneapolis FBI agent, Terry Albury, was indicted for – guess what? – criminal leaking to the news media, the same crime McCabe committed and lied at least four times about to the Inspector General and the Office of Professional Responsibility.  But of course, most of the fake news media completely missed this part of the story, and all the connections detailed above.

Instead, the Usual Suspects in America’s grand pantheon of fake media outlets are portraying the Thursday Sessions letter to congress as if Sessions is basically refusing to do anything, complete with quotes from angry Republicans who also aren’t connecting these dots condemning the AG for refusing to appoint another Special Counsel.

The reality, as is generally the case with our fake news media, is exactly the opposite.  As I pointed out when Sessions dropped his bomb on March 8, you have to look at all of this from the AG’s point of view.  After all, he has an ongoing investigation that has been underway for months, since at least last November and probably well before then.  Why would he interrupt all that work that’s already been done by appointing some new guy to come in, take weeks or months to get organized, and then go over all the same ground that’s already been covered by Mr. Huber and his staff, working as they are in conjunction with IG Horowitz and his staff of 470 people?

Given the manner in which the law has been abused against Republicans over the years, Sessions most likely has a proper disdain for the special counsel law in general, and is reluctant to use it unless it becomes absolutely necessary.  Robert Mueller’s conduct in his assignment thus far has only given thinking Americans much more cause to regard the law as the American Prosecutorial Abuse Act that it is.  Why create another monster using that law when you already have an investigation that has been underway for months, one that may very well already have a grand jury convened and be preparing to issue indictments when the IG’s report from his own investigation is made public?

If you want to politicize the process – as Rod Rosenstein did – then you appoint a Special Counsel and let him spend months and years abusing people’s rights in the pursuit of an array of irrelevant process crimes and indictments of foreign nationals who will never be brought to trial.  But if you want to bring people to justice for real crimes against this country, AG Sessions obviously believes the best way to do it is within the confines and processes of the justice system as it was set up in the U.S. constitution.

Some are speculating that what Sessions really has Huber and Horowitz doing is laying the groundwork for the appointment of a second special counsel after the Horowitz report has been released.  I don’t agree with that, for the reasons laid out above.  Working together, Huber and Horowitz have every power possessed by a special counsel:  Given that, why would the AG reinvent the wheel just at the cusp of issuing indictments and perp-walking the wrongdoers?  Makes no sense to me.

What does make logical sense is that Sessions believes his Justice Department is capable of actually doing its mandated job.  It’s sort of amazing that people who call themselves conservatives object to that approach.

Just another day in Jeff Sessions don’t need no stinking second special counsel America.

That is all.

The Timing on That ABC Piece About McCabe Investigating Sessions Sure Was Interesting

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, let’s construct a little timeline…

February 28 – President Trump issues a seemingly nasty tweet that is critical of both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz:

Early March – the fake news media, including ABC, leaps to the defense of Sessions and Horowitz, a reaction to Trump’s tweet that was as predictable as the sun rising in the East.

March 13 – The DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility recommends that Sessions fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.  That recommendation is based on a finding by IG Horowitz, stemming from his 14-month investigation into FBI/DOJ wrongdoing.

March 16 – Sessions fires McCabe late on a Friday evening, just two days before McCabe’s pension was set to kick in, ensuring that the firing would be one of the main topics of conversation on all the Sunday morning fake news programs.

March 17-18 – The fake news media, in obvious coordination with the Democrat Party, hilariously attempts to blame McCabe’s firing initially on President Trump.  Trump, of course, literally had nothing to do with the firing at all, and it quickly becomes apparent the public isn’t buying it.

March 18-19 – The fake news media also slowly begins to wake up to the fact that the firing of McCabe was executed by Sessions and Horowitz, two men they had all spent the first half of March saying very nice things about.  This makes it tough for them to shift their tactic from blaming Trump for McCabe’s firing to blaming Sessions.  But they have to blame someone in the Trump administration for some sort of wrongdoing in the McCabe firing, because that’s what the narrative dictates.  What to do?

March 21 – ABC tries to solve the conundrum with its story alleging that McCabe, almost a year ago, opened a criminal investigation targeting his own boss, Sessions.  By filing this story just a few days after McCabe’s firing, ABC obviously hopes to convey the blatantly false impression that Sessions actually fired McCabe because he was angry at having been investigated by a subordinate.

Sadly, this is how the fake media in our country works.  Nevermind that McCabe was smack in the middle of the abuse of the FISA process, the faking of the investigation into the Clinton email scandal, is alleged to have encouraged his subordinate, Peter Strzok, to falsify his notes from his interview with Mike Flynn in order to entrap Flynn into a trumped-up guilty plea for lying to the FBI, and on and on and on.  The narrative dictates that Donald Trump is the bad guy, and anyone who is on the bad side of Donald Trump is the good guy – it simply must be that way.

Which is why, when Trump issues a tweet critical of Sessions and Horowitz, the fake media rushes to their defense, and when Trump praises the firing of McCabe, the fake media rushes to call Sessions and Horowitz the real crooks.  Watching the fake media go back and forth on these guys is like watching a tennis match from the stands at center court.

But that’s what the anti-Trump narrative dictates, and the narrative must always prevail.  It’s important to remember here that literally no one is exempt from this simple rule.  Just wait to see what a villain Robert Mueller becomes in the fake news media’s eyes when he is finally forced to admit publicly that there was no collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia.

That is all.

Hillary Clinton and McCabe Clarify Job #1 for Sessions: Punish the Deep State Cabal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Remember, whenever a Clinton accuses someone else of wrongdoing, it means they’re guilty of that behavior themselves. – The Pantsuit Princess, in an interview on Dutch television, claimed that President Donald Trump has “undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family. Disregarded laws, ethical standards.”

This, of course, is yet another episode of Clintonian “projection,” an attempt to deflect attention from her own influence scam while serving as Secretary of State.  Seems the Grasping Grifter must have gotten wind that the Justice Department’s ongoing investigations into the Clinton Crime Family’s Fake Foundation and the Uranium One scandals are bearing some fruit.  Cool.

The Coughing Crook also ironically accused the President of “undermining the stability of the global order.”  Well, yes, that is what the Trump campaign was, and the Trump presidency is all about.  It’s what he got elected to do, and – shockingly to every politician and fake journalist in Washington – it is actually what he is going about doing.

Wait, what?  And he was surprised he got fired? – ABC News reported on Wednesday that now-fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe oversaw a criminal investigation last summer against…wait for it…his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions!

Oh, but it gets even better.  Turns out the investigation was initiated at the demand of…wait for it…disgraced former Minnesota Senator Al Franken.  The pusillanimous ex-bad comic insisted the FBI investigate Sessions because he believed the AG had not told him the truth during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier in the year.

Of course, the very most absurd part of this story is the fact that Democrat voters have become so utterly demented and devoid of any real standards in their voting patterns that Al Franken was once actually a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.  This is me, slapping my damn head.

But back to McCabe:  Seriously, you conduct a criminal investigation of your own boss and then have the nerve to feign surprise when you get your butt run off?  There can be no more perfect illustration of the entitled attitudes of the deep state thugs who still infest the federal bureaucracy.  No one elected creeps like McCabe and James Comey and Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr to do anything, yet they all obviously believed they were entitled to work to fix a national election and, having failed at that, to work to undermine a duly-elected President.

When they get caught and summarily fired, they issue intemperate, threatening and demonstrably false statements written by professional talking points monkeys (McCabe) expressing their outrage at being caught and fired, or they steal government records, leak them to the New York Times (Comey) and start issuing increasingly weird messages on their Twitter feeds.

These people all believed they were somehow special; that, despite the fact that no citizen had ever cast a single vote in their favor, they were the chosen ones who somehow had a duty to commit crimes designed to guide the destiny of a nation of 330 million people.

It’s important to never forget the foundational key to all of this:  They all felt free to commit all manner of crimes in pursuit of their goals because they knew with absolute certainty that, if the Fainting Felon won the 2016 election, there would be no investigation into any of this.  They knew that, not only would they never be in any way punished for their crimes, they would in fact most likely be rewarded for their actions on behalf of the Cackling Crank, who they all fully expected to win.

And why wouldn’t they think this way?  After all, they’d just gone through 8 years during which the FBI and Department of Justice had been increasingly corrupted at the highest levels by a President who had promised to “transform the country” and by political appointees dead set on carrying out that mission.  Indeed, it is becoming increasingly obvious with every passing day and release of more Strzok/Page texts that this deep state cabal was right in the middle of “transforming the country” into just another third world banana republic when a very inconvenient election intervened.

The more we learn about this deep state cabal and its efforts to subvert our democratic processes, the more I lean towards viewing the outcome of the 2016 election as an act of a very benevolent God.  What they did was treasonous, and it is vitally important that they all be brought to justice if our country is going to survive.  Because the past week’s statements by McCabe, Comey, Brennan, Power and the Pantsuit Princess make it crystal clear that none of them has any intention of voluntarily relenting.

Just another day in deep state America.

That is all.
