My name is Devin Nunes, and I am here to drop another bomb.  Boom.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – The Pantsuit Princess responded to rumors that she has been wearing some sort of large back brace which protrudes above her shoulders by wearing an $1,100 Hermes scarf.  So, why do we classify this as #Winning?  Because any normal, honest person would simply explain the reason for the back brace that she is obviously wearing.  Anytime any of the dishonest hacks who lead the Democrat Party get caught in another act of dishonesty is #Winning.  Period.

Tired of all this #Winning yet?  Part II – Just in case you thought that CNN poll showing the Democrats’ edge in the generic congressional ballot question had all but disappeared was a fluke, Reuters issued its own poll on Thursday, and it gets even better.  Where the CNN poll showed a 3 point edge for the Democrats – within the poll’s margin of error – the Reuters poll pegs the D advantage at just…wait for it…1 percent.  The Democrat margin in the Reuters poll released just three weeks ago had the Democrats holding an 11 point lead.  That’s #Winning.  Bigly.

My name is Devin Nunes, and I am here to drop another bomb.  Boom. – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy met with Justice Department officials on Thursday for a “briefing” related to documents both Republicans have demanded the DOJ provide their committees.

The document in question is an official communication sent in late July, 2016 from then-CIA Director John Brennan to then-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey.  This electronic communication – or “EC” – formed the official justification for Comey’s decision on July 31, 2016 to initiate a counter-intelligence operation targeting the Donald Trump Campaign.  That EC from Brennan also led to the DOJ’s obtaining of a FISA warrant to wiretap Trump Tower and otherwise spy on the Trump Campaign and Transition Team.

This is a very important document, because it is basically the germinating event that ultimately led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, and all the of the anti-Trump conspiracy that has brought us up to today.  No congressional committee or other investigating body can possibly get to the bottom of everything that has taken place without having access to that Brennan communication, the EC.

Nunes has for months demanded to see an unredacted version of this document, because he is especially interested to know the name of a specific person who is named within it, and who Brennan claimed had provided him with “intelligence” on the Trump Campaign that supposedly made him concerned enough to want to begin this counter-intelligence operation.  The Washington Post reports that DOJ and the intelligence community don’t want to reveal the person’s name for the familiar “might reveal sources and methods” excuse that these agencies always use to justify their coverups.  The Post also notes that this person has already been identified to the Mueller investigation and has been cooperating with it for months.

So, Mueller gets full information but congressional committees with oversight responsibility do not. See how this works?

And a coverup it is, make no mistake about that.  As Kimberly Strassel notes in a great Wall Street Journal piece, what all this means is that it is very likely that the FBI, well before it received Brennan’s EC justifying the counter-intelligence operation against the Trump Campaign, had either planted an operative within the Trump Campaign or who was interacting with Trump officials in an effort to dirty them up.

As Strassel puts it:

“When government agencies refer to sources, they mean people who appear to be average citizens but use their profession or contacts to spy for the agency. Ergo, we might take this to mean that the FBI secretly had a person on the payroll who used his or her non-FBI credentials to interact in some capacity with the Trump campaign.

This would amount to spying, and it is hugely disconcerting. It would also be a major escalation from the electronic surveillance we already knew about, which was bad enough. Obama political appointees rampantly “unmasked” Trump campaign officials to monitor their conversations, while the FBI played dirty with its surveillance warrant against Carter Page, failing to tell the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that its supporting information came from the Hillary Clinton campaign. Now we find it may have also been rolling out human intelligence, John Le Carré style, to infiltrate the Trump campaign.”

On August 15, 2016, FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok – himself a part of the FBI’s counter-intelligence division – exchanged texts with his passionate lover, DOJ Attorney Lisa Page about an “insurance policy” the DOJ/FBI anti-Trump cabal had in place.  Thanks to the efforts of Devin Nunes, we most likely discovered the nature of that “insurance policy” yesterday.

Ms. Strassel closes her piece by saying she believes she knows the identity of this FBI plant.  It’s pretty obvious that Nunes and Gowdy do as well, but are seeking absolute confirmation before deciding what to do about it.

We keep seeing people in the media toss out the fact that President Trump could end all the speculation by simply declassifying this document, and that is true.  So, why doesn’t he do that, since doing so would likely be to his ultimate advantage vis a vis the Mueller investigation.

The simplest and most probable explanation for that is that this “source” is, in addition to cooperating with the Mueller investigation, also cooperating with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber in their own investigations into all the wrongdoing that has taken place within the DOJ and FBI since mid-2016.

Boom.

Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on Winning America.

That is all.

The Nunes “Threat” on Sessions: Not What it Seems to be?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The NRA held its annual convention in Dallas over the weekend and President Trump was a featured speaker.  But that wasn’t the big news.  The big news came when failed actress and failing anti-gun activist Alyssa Milano showed up to stage a protest in a park across the street from the convention center, complete with a small army of body guards who were – you guessed it – clearly carrying firearms.  Seriously, if liberals didn’t exist, you could not make them up.

Two headlines on the Drudge Report this morning caught my eye:

  • “With no letup in home prices, California exodus surges;” and
  • “California to require solar panels on new homes.”

Cause, meet effect.

“Here’s our new poll showing President Trump’s popularity rising dramatically.  We apologize for the findings of our new poll and will try to do better faking our data in the future.” –  The new Reuters/Ipsos poll is out, and it shows a dramatic rise in the public’s job approval for the President, to 48 percent.  Hilariously, the leftwing lunatics who conduct this poll included the following disclaimer along with the poll results:

“This week’s Reuters/Ipsos Core Political release presents something of an outlier of our trend. Every series of polls has the occasional outlier and in our opinion this is one. So, while we are reporting the findings in the interest of transparency, we will not be announcing the start of a new trend until we have more data to validate this pattern.”

So, if you were entertaining the thought that the people who run the Reuters/Ipsos poll did so in a sincere search for accurate findings, you can now put that thought out of your mind.  No need to thank me for this public service announcement.

You have a point, but why have you waited until now? – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes told an interviewer on Fox News yesterday that he is planning to move to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of congress this week.  The issue at hand is the Justice Department’s and FBI’s ongoing refusal to comply with his committee’s information requests in a timely manner.

It’s a valid point, and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who is one of the candidates to succeed Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, expressed his agreement in a later interview on the same network.  My only question, though, is why has Nunes waited until now to threaten such action?  It’s not as if this stonewalling on the part of DOJ and the FBI is something new – it’s been going on since last summer.

One of the big problems Nunes and the rest of the Republicans in congress have in such situations is that they are viewed by those in the executive branch as paper tigers, people who make a lot of noise for the television cameras but who, when push comes to shove, can always be counted upon to back off at the first sign of negative media coverage of their actions.

Obama Attorney General Eric Holder no doubt laughed his butt off when he saw Nunes’ threat.  After all, Holder was held in contempt of congress way back during Obama’s first term in office, and what difference did that ultimately make to anything?  None, because the Republicans running congress then were not willing to take the next step and send the Capital police over to DOJ and take Holder into custody.  So Holder was able to just continue on his merry way.

But here’s the thing about the Nunes threat on Sessions:  It may not be what it appears to be.  Think about it for a minute:  First of all, why target Sessions and not the person who is the real problem, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein?  Sessions is recused from the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play – it’s Rosenstein who has been leading DOJ’s obstruction efforts with the various congressional investigations.

Second, again, why now?  Why take this action just when we are reportedly about to finally see the report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz made public?  I fully understand Nunes’ frustration, if that’s what it really is, but making this particular threat at this particular time against this particular target doesn’t really seem to make much strategic sense in the context of all these other events swirling around.

Here’s a thought:  Maybe Nunes is taking this action in order to help cement Sessions’ – and by extension, Horowitz’s – independence in the public’s mind in the weeks leading up to the release of the Horowitz report.  Nunes, after all, has been widely (and unfairly) portrayed as a shill for the Trump White House, so what better way to emphasize Sessions’ independence from all of that by going after him personally with a contempt of congress citation?

Why, I wouldn’t be surprised if we also see a nasty Trump tweet, or two, or three, targeting Mr. Sessions in the coming days.  Think about it – things are not always as they seem.

Just another day in you couldn’t make this stuff up if you wanted to America.

That is all.

Devin Nunes Drops Another Bomb, and It’s a Big One

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, here’s how our fake national news media justifies what it does:

  • Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday that the Obama Administration’s fake “counterintelligence” investigation into the Trump campaign was started in early 2016 “with no official intelligence” as its basis.
  • Other than Fox and a handful of conservative news outlets, no media outlet has reported this incredible, bombshell news, which means that the investigation was illegal from the outset.
  • The fake news media outlets refusing to cover this story claim that it’s all Nunes’ fault, because he has destroyed his own credibility with the fake news media.
  • Why is that the case?  Because Nunes has spent the last 13 months uncovering the truth about the Trump/Russia Collusion fantasy play that has been mounted by the Democrat party in direct coordination with those same fake news media players.
  • Because of that, the fake news media identified Nunes as a threat, and has mounted an intense character assassination campaign against him.

See how that works?  The media identifies a threat to their narrative, colludes with Democrats like bug-eyed Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, to demonize that threat, claims that threat has lost his credibility as a result of the demonization campaign, and then proceeds to ignore everything he says on the grounds of the lost credibility.  A textbook display of a Saul Alinsky character assassination campaign.

In all seriousness, the revelation by Nunes is incredible in its potential ramifications, and it can’t just be wished away no matter how hard the fake media tries.  The FBI and intelligence community currently claim that the origin for its counterintelligence operation against the Trump Campaign was a conversation that a pathetic minor hanger-on named George Papadopolous had with an Australian diplomat.  If that is true – which is highly suspect – then that bit of intelligence should have been communicated through the so-called “Five Eyes” agreement between the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK, a deal that ensures these five allies do not spy on one another’s citizens without everyone knowing about it.

Nunes, as Chairman of the House Intel Committee, is privy to such Five Eyes communications, so is obviously in a position to know.  Obama CIA Director John Brennan testified to congress last May that he directly communicated the intelligence he had accumulated as of October 2016 to then-FBI Director James Comey, and also briefed key members of congress at the same time.

Unfortunately for Brennan, last week the FBI, after months of stonewalling, released the original electronic communications documents  that led to the creation of its counterintelligence investigation, and those documents, according to Nunes, reveal that that intelligence that Brennan passed to Comey did not come through official channels.  Nunes told Bartiromo the following:

Nunes doesn’t know whether the former secretary of state and then-Democratic challenger to Trump in the election, Hillary Clinton, was pulling the strings of the investigation launched against her political opponent. However, he said it is known that two long-time Clinton associates – including Sidney Blumenthal – were “actively” giving information to the State Department, which “was somehow making its way to the FBI.”

So, what all this means is that it is very likely that the CIA, under Brennan’s leadership, had been conducting illegal surveillance on the Trump Campaign long before the FBI had ever obtained a FISA warrant authorizing such activity against U.S. citizens, and that associates of the Pantsuit Princess were feeding the State Department information from the fake Trump Dossier that the DNC and Clinton Campaign had spent millions of dollars having compiled.  That information was then being fed by the State Department to Brennan, and Brennan was then passing it through to Comey.  Breathtaking.

This explains why Nunes and his committee are still working on a report on its findings related to the State Department’s involvement in the illegal spying on the Trump Campaign.  We also should remember here that we have evidence, in the form of texts between disgraced deep state FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his mistress, DOJ lawyer Lisa Page, that President Obama himself was aware of all of this as early as September 2016.  In that month, Strzok texted Page that Obama had  requested a briefing “on everything we are doing.”

This is the single biggest scandal in American history, and our fake news media is so blinded by its collective hatred for Donald Trump and its overwhelming general political bias that it is not just missing the story, it is intentionally ignoring it in the hopes that pretending that the facts don’t exist will somehow make them go away.

But facts are stubborn things, as Ronald Reagan famously said, and you can’t just wish them away.

Just another day in the truth is coming slowly but surely America.

That is all.

Trump Just Provided Cover For Real Action to End The DOJ/FBI Stonewalling of Congress

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Saturdays have always been busy Twitter days for President Trump, and yesterday was no exception.  In addition to tweets defending embattled EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and announcing that the suspicious fire that devastated an apartment in Trump Tower had been put out, Mr. Trump issued two tweets on Saturday morning related to the ongoing refusal by the FBI and Justice Department to comply with congressional demands for un-redacted documents pertinent to the FISA abuse scandal.

Here are those two tweets:

The President’s characterization of the failure of DOJ and FBI officials to produce the requested documents as “slow walking” is a vast understatement.  The reality here is that the requests for most of these documents have been outstanding since at least last August, some even longer than that.  And it’s not just the House Judiciary Committee that is being stonewalled, it’s also the House Intelligence Committee, Chaired by California Republican Devin Nunes.

Nunes became so frustrated with the situation  in mid-March that he set an April 11 deadline for the production of the documents in question, promising to pursue all remedies available to him if the stonewalling continued.  On Friday, after having produced an updated, but still redacted version of some of the documents in question, the Justice Department offered to allow members of the House Intelligence Committee to “view” these un-classified documents in a “secure room” normally used to provide viewing of documents that are highly classified.

Separately, after having missed a Thursday deadline for complying with a subpoena issued by House Judiciary Chairman Goodlatte, the DOJ said it would “supplement” what it has already produced this coming week.

Obviously, neither response is in any way acceptable, and the time has come for congress quit fooling around with the bad actors at DOJ and the FBI, and keep Rep. Nunes’s promise to use “every tool at its disposal” to force proper compliance.  Nunes and Goodlatte, both good men, have unfortunately spent the last 8 months whining about the lack of cooperation and making threats, but have always backed off when the bad actors missed whatever latest deadline had been set for compliance.  Nunes was on Fox & Friends again Sunday morning, complaining about DOJ/FBI’s latest dodge, but not saying exactly what he’s planning to do to combat it.

Here’s a suggestion:  Refuse the offer by the bad actors to “view” these documents.  That is a completely unacceptable offer, and if it is accepted, it will just show Nunes and congress to once again be a toothless tiger.  The same advice applies to Goodlatte:  your deadline has been missed, and it’s time for further, real action.  You issued a lawful subpoena that has been ignored by a bunch of scofflaws – do something real about that reality.

And guess what?  Both men now have been provided cover for taking real enforcement action by the President of the United States.  Whether they realize it or not, that is most likely why President Trump issued those specific tweets on that particular subject early on a Saturday morning.

Don’t be fooled otherwise:  There are a number of things congress has the power to do here, including levying heavy fines on the bad actors, or even having them tossed in jail.  Those are just two of five real options – with real examples of precedence – laid out by Mark Tapscott in a piece at Lifezette in a really good piece published on Saturday.

The other two people who just got some presidential cover on Saturday are FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who are now free to take some or all of the bad actors who have been conducting the document production stonewall.  If they’re too squeamish to take the media heat for such firings themselves, they can always point to the President’s and congress’s frustrations as the justification for finally, at long last taking some action to break up the logjam at their agencies.

The President doesn’t just tweet this stuff for no reason.  We should expect some serious action to end the stonewalling of these various congressional committees in the coming days.

Just another day in the FBI is an outlaw agency America.

That is all.

The Hillary Clinton Excuse Generator Doll Humiliates Itself in India

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Ok, it was actually Hillary Clinton who humiliated her own self in India, but seriously, someone needs to manufacture a Hillary Clinton Bobblehead Excuse Generator Doll.  Just pull the string and it spits out one of 100 excuses for losing the election.  You’d sell a billion of them, promise.]

The Pantsuit Princess was in the news on Monday for rolling out yet more excuses for why she lost the presidential election in 2016.  If you thought she had already blamed everyone else in the United States of America for her failure except for herself, boy, were you wrong.

Speaking to an audience in India, of all places, where the great majority of the population is poor, uneducated and unproductive, the Coughing Crook blamed her loss on people who are poor, uneducated and unproductive.  Oh, and they were all racists, too.  No kidding:

“There’s all that red in the middle, where Trump won. Now, I win the coasts, I win Illinois, Minnesota, places like that. But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign, Make America Great Again, was looking backwards. ‘You don’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women getting jobs, you don’t want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.'”

Oh, but it gets better.  The 100% self-absorbed, 0% self-aware Fainting Felon, who has spent much of her adult life claiming to be a champion of women’s rights, went on to claim that any woman who voted for Donald Trump did so only because their husband or their boss told them to do so.

Then, as if to prove beyond all remaining doubt (could there really be any at this point?) that she was indeed the very worst candidate for any elective office in American history, the Grasping Grifter proceeded to stumble down the steps leading out of the venue, despite being held up by two men.  We can expect her to blame the incident on the two men, who no doubt told her to stumble, a demand that she, as a mere woman, had no ability to resist.

Never stop talking, Hillary.  Please, never stop.

The House Intelligence Committee announced Monday evening that it has concluded its year-long investigation into allegations that the Trump Campaign “colluded” with Russia to influence the 2016 elections, and found zero evidence to support the claims.  Combined, the three major network newscasts devoted less than 1 minute of coverage to that bit of news.  If this surprises you, you probably get your news from the evening network newscasts.

San Fran Nan stammered through a condemnation of the Committee’s move, slamming Speaker Paul Ryan for not keeping the investigation going into perpetuity.  Because, of course, the Democrats’ goal whenever there is a Republican in the White House is to always have myriad fake investigations into fake scandals going simultaneously.  This is especially true when GOP policies are producing things like jobs and economic prosperity.  It’s the Democrat playbook, right there on page 359.

The Democrat playbook also demands that they and their myriad fake journalist press agents continue to demonize Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (Low-IQ Maxine Waters carried out that task on MSNBC Monday night), and that bug-eyed Adam Schiff produce a minority report filled with classified information, which the administration will have to heavily redact, giving the Democrats and the fake news media the excuse to scream “coverup!”  Yes, it’s tiresome, yes, it’s incredibly dishonest, but what do you expect Democrats to do, focus on policy?

Hah!  That’ll be the day.  Focusing on policy got deleted from the Democrat playbook way back in 1992, when Bill and Hillary got elected to their co-presidency.  It will never return, trust me.

Speaking of fake news outlets, economic prosperity and jobs, the fakest #fakenews outlet of them all, CNN, just keeps getting faker as time goes along.  For years, CNN had kept an updated online “jobs tracker”, which provided monthly updates about the number of jobs added or lost by the U.S. economy during the George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama administrations.

But updating the tracker has amounted to just too much good news for President Donald Trump over the last year, as the Trump economy has kept adding new jobs at an accelerating pace.  So, the fake journalists at CNN just couldn’t take it anymore, and decided at the first of the year to stop updating the tracker.  That is sad, pathetic and hilarious all rolled up into a tight little fake news ball.

Just another day in the Democrat playbook America.

That is all.

Sunday Scattershooting While Wondering Whatever Happened To That Delightful Barbara Boxer?

  • Here’s what the fake news media thinks “accountability” looks like:  When you have a reporter who files a completely false report for the sole apparent reason of damaging the President of the United States, tanking the entire stock market in the process, his “punishment” is a four week vacation timed perfectly for the Christmas holidays.  That’s what ABC did with its serial fake reporter, Brian Ross on Saturday.  Man, nice work if you can get it.
  • Hey, it worked out great for Lenin and Mao, didn’t it? – Meanwhile, over at NBC, network executives have had their staff busy taking down all photos and videos of disgraced morning fake host Matt Lauer from the network’s website the last few days, apparently in the belief they can simply rewrite the history of the last 20 years, during which Lauer has been the network’s most important on-camera employee.  Somehow, I don’t think that strategy is going to work out all that well.
  • Speaking of fake media outlets getting caught with their collective pants down… – When the White House announced on Friday that President-elect Trump actually received the all-clear from the Obama Administration to start making contacts with Russia and other governments during the interim period last Winter, fakety fakey fake news host Jake Tapper immediately went to his go-to guy for bald-faced lying about President Trump, Director of National Intelligence and serial perjurer James Clapper.  Clapper told Tapper (hey, that rhymes – maybe that’s why these two permanent prevaricators are so fond of one another) that it was “absurd” to think the Obama Administration would have approved any such thing.
  • The TapperClapper team’s gonna need a new lie. – The trouble is, the Obama Administration is caught on video doing exactly that.  Tyler Durden, at his ZeroHedge.com blog, dug that very video from his archives late on Saturday.  Here’s the key exchange:
  • REPORTER: “This building [the Obama State Department] doesn’t see anything necessarily inapprorpiate in contact between members of the incoming [Trump] administration and foreign officials, no matter what country they’re from?
  • OBAMA STATE DEPT SPOKESPERSON: “No, no…and again this has been ongoing. We have no problem with them doing such on their own.”      Hmmmm.  Seems pretty clear, doesn’t it?
  • Getting tired of all this winning yet? – The New York office of the Federal Reserve, which has over the past several years employed a statistical tool that attempts to estimate the performance of the U.S. economy in real time, announced on Friday that its index had reached an all-time high of 3.93% GDP growth last week.  Amazing what the U.S. economy can do when we don’t have a president who is intentionally trying to limit it via over-regulation, huh?
  • House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes blew his stack on Saturday when the Mueller Special Counsel’s Office leaked to both the NYTimes and WaPo information about why FBI Agent Peter Strzok had been jettisoned from the investigation over the summer.  The obviously orchestrated leak came after Nunes had been attempting to acquire information about Strzok’s reassignment since August.
  • It turns out that Strzok, who had also played key roles in both the Clinton e-mail fake investigation and the fake investigation into the Trump Dossier hoax, was caught by Mueller exchanging nasty texts and emails about President Trump.  Mueller was afraid that the revelation of those messages would over-shadow his own person soap box, so he tried to quietly rid himself of the problem.
  • No one takes the Boy Who Cried Wolf seriously. – Nunes threatened to file contempt charges against the FBI and DOJ if his requests to interview Strzok and for a raft of information the agencies have been stonewalling for months are not complied with by the end of December.  But Nunes has made such threats several times before without taking action, so no doubt Mueller and the deep state creeps at DOJ and FBI just chuckled when they heard of this latest threat.
  • Oh, and by the way, the Republicans in the do-nothing U.S. Senate actually took a vote on something important and managed pass it.  No, really, they did, somehow cobbling together 51 votes in favor of the Senate version of a tax reform bill.  So who was the lone GOP holdout?  Why, it was Tennessee Senator Bob Corker, who just could not bring himself to vote in favor of anything that might be portrayed as a victory for a President of his own political party.  Mr. Corker’s personal pettiness knows no bounds.  But that’s ok, because Trump just keeps winning, anyway.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s Winning America.

That is all.

The Desperation Of The Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • As has been the case with the Democrat Party since the Clintons took it over a quarter century ago, whenever they are accusing any Republican of a bad behavior, it is a very safe bet that they are doing so in order to deflect attention from the fact that they are engaged in the very same behavior, or worse.  Over the last few weeks, we are now finally beginning to discover the real reasons why the Democrats and the fake news media have invested so much time and energy since November 8 of last year in promoting their Russia Collusion fantasy play.
  • Not that we hadn’t already been aware of some of the Clintons’ shady dealings with the Russians, of course.  Even before the election, we knew that Hillary, while serving as Secretary of State, brokered a deal that ceded control of about 20% of America’s uranium resources to a group of Russian oligarchs, and we knew that those same oligarchs just happened to pour tens of millions of dollars into the Clinton Crime Family Foundation around the same time that deal was being made.  We also knew that it was also around this same time that Bill Clinton was receiving double his normal speaking fee of $250k not once, but twice from the same Russian oligarchs.  Just a coincidence, of course.
  • It was only recently that Wikileaks alleged that Special Counsel Bob Mueller was also involved in the brokering of that deal.  Wikileaks, which has basically never been wrong about anything to this point, says it has found an email in which The Most Corrupt Woman In America got Mueller to deliver a sample of the uranium in question to a Russian representative in 2009.  The Wikileaks email points up the need for the Justice Department to investigate the Special Counsel while his own sham investigation is ongoing.  #Irony.
  • But that’s far from all there is here.
  • Since the election, we have also found out Clinton Campaign Manager, John The Spirit Cooker Podesta, took time out from sacrificing goats and chickens to serve on the board of a company with heavy Russia connections  , and that he owns 75,000 shares of that same company.  We also now know that Podesta failed to disclose any of this on his federal disclosure form when he went to work for the Clinton campaign.  Interestingly, we found out just a couple of weeks ago that company in question has suddenly collapsed, as its investors pulled the plug on its funding.  Funny coincidence, that.
  • But that again is far from all there is to this.  There are so, so many more reasons why the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media have been so desperate to keep public attention focused on their Russia Collusion fantasy.
  • Take the case of Debbie Wasserman Schulz and at least 2 dozen Democrat members of congress, and their longtime employment of one Imran Awan and several of his family members since 2004 at massively inflated salaries for instance.  Mr. Awan was famously arrested last Tuesday at Dulles Airport as he attempted to follow his family members in fleeing the country to Pakistan.  The initial charge against him is listed as bank fraud, as he illegally wired several hundred thousand dollars to Pakistan that he and his family had obtained via fraudulent loans from the Congressional Federal Credit Union.
  • But there is so, so much more to this story.
  • Mr. Awan, for example, as being paid more than $160,000 per year to be the “IT Staff” for Ms. Schulz and other Democrats, yet most congressional staffers in the same role make no more than $60,000 per year.  In addition, no one among all of these Democrats appears to be able or willing to point to what specifically Mr. Awan did for them in his “IT” role.  Add to this that Mr. Awan also had access to the email accounts for the House Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs Committees, and you can see that there is an awful lot more to come from this growing scandal should the FBI and Justice Department conduct a proper investigation.
  • But wait, there’s more!
  • What about Fusion GPS, the firm made up of sleazy ex-fake journalists that concocted the infamous “Trump Dossier” that James Comey tried to use to frame President Trump.  We now know that the preponderance of this bunch’s revenue comes from – guess who? – Russia!  Oh, and they also do a lot of work for Venezuela’s socialist regime.  Of course, the big unanswered question about Fusion is who exactly hired them to dummy up the Trump Dossier in the first place?  The group’s management isn’t saying, and Democrats are desperate to prevent us from finding out.  Go figure.
  • Oh, but we aren’t done yet, are we?  Nope.
  • How about the whole “unmasking” scandal, which the House Intelligence Committee has finally, at long last decided to investigate, and which the Justice Department claims to also be investigating.  We know now that senior Obama officials, including CIA Director John Brennan, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and even UN Ambassador Samantha Power, issued thousands of requests for the unmasking of Republicans during the presidential campaign.  THOUSANDS.  It is more than fair to note that each and every one of those three people reported directly to Barack Hussein Obama at the time they were making those thousands of requests.  It is beyond the realm of credibility to believe their boss had no idea what they were up to.
  • There is even more than all of this, but I’m running out of space here.
  • The legend the Democrats and the fake news media have created is that Hillary Clinton and her campaign people believe they lost the election due to Russian interference, and that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the campaign.  A full year of investigations into these allegations has produced zero proof of any such collusion, or really any evidence at all that the Russians influenced a single vote at the end of the day.
  • The truth, of course, is that it was the Democrats who were closely tied to the Russians, and the reason why the Democrats and their media agents have reacted so stunningly viciously to the election results is that they know that honest investigations into their activities will result in many, many Democrats – and possibly some fake journalists – serving major time in various federal prisons around the country.
  • Had Clinton won the election, there would have been no “Russia Collusion” fantasy play, no investigations into any of the matters listed above.  The Justice Department and FBI and our intelligence agencies would have remained utterly corrupted and would have protected all involved, just as they did during the Obama regime.
  • But they didn’t win the election, and they woke up the morning after election day frightened and desperate to come up with some way to divert attention to Trump and the Republicans.
  • We now know all of these things.  The only remaining question is whether Attorney General Sessions can force the FBI and his U.S. attorneys to focus their investigations properly.  We can only hope he will.  There is much investigating to do.

Just another day in desperate Democrats America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends): 4.3.2017

  • I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  Real headline in Sunday’s Washington Examiner:  “Minimum Wage Activists Call Tipping Racist.”  This is the latest talking point being used by activists who want to implement a $15 minimum wage for all jobs, nationwide, a move that would obviously destroy millions of jobs in the process.  My wife and I are both “over-tippers” who generally tip more than the recommended 15-20% whenever the service is not awful, because we both had to work jobs like that at one point in our lives and know how hard they are.  But now, I suppose we’ll be called “over-racists” for doing so.  Honestly, the greatest fantasy writers in the world just could not make up the stuff progressives really think and say every day of the week.
  • How about ‘no’, Chuck?:  Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer told an interviewer on one of the Sunday morning talk shows about his latest bright idea to avoid nuking the filibuster over the Gorsuch nomination:  Withdraw Gorsuch’s name from consideration, and set up a committee consisting of both Republican and Democrat senators who would have to unanimously approve any subsequent nominee before he would go to the Senate Juduciary Committee for consideration.  Thus, you would have a committee making a recommendation to another committee making a recommendation to the full Senate.  Yeahhhhhhhhhh…no.
  • Hey, he’s got more credibility than our people do.:  When the fake editors at the Washington Post wanted an opinion piece to defend what the writer calls “Sound and accurate journalism”, did they reach out to one of their own fake “journalists”?  No.  Did they reach out to any of the thousands of other fake journalists working at other news outlets in the nation’s capital?  Nope.  Did they reach out to any of the tens of thousands of other fake journalists working at other media outlets all across America, or even in other countries?  Nopey.  No, when the WaPo’s fake editors want an opinion piece to defend “Sound and accurate journalism” they do to right, by God:  they go for an actor who once played a real journalist in a movie!  Yes, Robert Redford has an opinion piece in the Sunday WaPo in which he defends “Sound and accurate journalism.”  Mr. Redford apparently hasn’t gotten the memo that you could count the number of “sound and accurate journalists” in Washington today on the fingers of one hand.  All the others are just partisan hacks.  But hey, it’s been 42 years since he made that movie.  Give the guy a break.
  • Hey, think they can get Wendy Davis to run for Governor again?  That’d be great.:  In case you missed the earth-shattering news, the Texas Democratic Party has a new leading contender to be its sacrificial lamb to run against Senator Ted Cruz in the 2018 mid-term elections.  His name is Beto O’Rourke – a fantastic Texas name if there ever was one – and he currently represents Texas’s 16th congressional district in congress.  Beto is young, he’s smart, he’s articulate, he’s move-star good-looking, and hey, he even plays the guitar, so he’s cool, too.  Given all of that, he has about the same chance of defeating Ted Cruz in the 2018 mid-term elections as you or I do.  But he has a great, great name.
  • Because that’s what the fake news media is all about.:  The fake reporters at the NY Times reported over the weekend that Devin Nunes’ sources for the intelligence information on which he has been relying is two “White House staffers”, and even gave their names.  The story naturally received massive attention and repetition in the fake news media. Trouble is, that report, like pretty much everything else in the NY Times these days, was false.  Meanwhile, Adam Housley is reporting on Fox News this morning that his multiple sources inside U.S. intelligence agencies are telling him that the infamous liar Susan Rice was one of the high-ranking Obama officials who led the effort to spy on and unmask several members of the Trump Campaign and Transition Team.  We can bet there will be nothing but crickets on this story from the rest of the fake news media.

Just another weekend in fake news media America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.25.2017

  • Hard starboard!  No, make that port!  No, starboard!  No, wait…:  That crashing sound you heard around 2:30 CT Friday was the GOP’s chances of holding both houses of congress in 2018 running upon the shoals of Obamacare.  Unlike the Democrats in Congress, Republicans have always had a very hard time goose-stepping in lockstep on any piece of legislation – unless it is simply a repeal bill they know will fail in the senate – and the party’s pitiful congressional leadership couldn’t hold the caucus together.  Thus, as is so often the case with a Republican congress, it proves yet again incapable of governing the country in a positive manner.  Some things never change.
  • Actually doing stuff is risky, so…:  The Senate is no better.  Presented this year with a grand opportunity to make use of the Congressional Review Act to rescind a raft of horrible last-minute Obama regulatory actions, the House has actually acted on more than a dozen items.  But the Senate, using the excuse of the confirmation process, has only managed to act on a handful.  With the timetable governing use of the CRA set to run out in late May, and the congressional schedule littered with days off and a two-week vacation between now and then, the GOP senate is going to end up leaving millions of disappointed constituents in the wake of its failure to act.  Again, some things never change.
  • I got this Tweedle-dee here, or this Tweedle-dum – take your pick.:  In the end, American voters are left with a choice between one ruling class party (the Democrats) that actively hates the majority of the country, and a second ruling class party (the Republicans) that at least pretends to love the country but cannot summon the political courage needed to do anything positive to help it.
  • Nothing says “ruling class” like an unearned two-week vacation.:  As mentioned above, Congress will be taking the 2nd and 3rd week in April off.  Many members of both parties will be holding public townhall meetings during those weeks.  What are the Republicans going to say to their no-doubt hostile audiences about Obamacare?  Remember, over the last 7 years, these people have said, “just give us a majority in the House, and we’ll repeal Obamacare.”  They got the House, and failed.  Then they said, “just give us a majority in the Senate, and we’ll repeal Obamacare.”  They got the Senate, and failed.  Then they said, “just give us the presidency, and we’ll repeal Obamacare.”  They got the Presidency, and even holding every lever of power in the nation’s capitol, they still failed to do a damn thing.
  • Paul Ryan’s new book:  The Seven Habits of Highly-Ineffective Speakers.:  Here’s a thought:  A Speaker who is a real leader would cancel this two-week vacation and hold the House in session until his party’s caucus produces a “repeal and replace” bill that it can pass.  There is nothing sacrosanct about the published congressional schedule, and no reason why a congress that has thus far produced basically nothing of note in three months deserves two weeks off.  Warning:  holding your breath waiting for this to happen could be hazardous to your health.
  • This better be good.:  In other news, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has called bi-polar FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers back to testify before his committee next week in a closed session, so that the witnesses might actually answer dozens of questions that they claimed they could not answer in last Monday’s public hearing.  Naturally, the ranking Democrat on the Committee, the bug-eyed Adam Schiff, virulently opposed this opportunity for the committee to have access to full information on the question of whether the Obama Administration spied on the Trump Transition Team and campaign.  We should not be surprised if Schiff and his fellow Democrats boycott the hearing, or pull some other public stunt to distract attention away from the real legal issue at play in this matter.

Just another week in the un-drained swamp of Washington DC.

That is all.
