The week began with release of the FISA Abuse Memo and the fake media/Democrat campaign to try to diminish the importance of that bombshell detailing of the organized corruption at the high levels of the Obama FBI and DOJ. In the midst of a wide-ranging interview with Bret Baier, House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes dropped the huge bomb that his next missive will detail how John Kerry’s State Department was also involved in all the corruption. Kerry’s enormous jaw no doubt hit the floor when hearing of Nunes’ comment, and he apparently still hasn’t pried it back up since he’s been unusually quiet this week. Then again, lawyering up probably doesn’t leave much time for public engagements or scheming with Middle Eastern terrorists.
Next day, some moron UT professor named Steve Vladek issued possibly the dumbest op-ed piece NBC has ever published (which is saying an awful lot, but there it is) in which he claimed that FBI Director Christopher Wray simply MUST resign over the issuance of the FISA Memo. Yet, despite Vladek’s plaintive cries and CNN’s previous prediction that Wray would indeed resign, the FBI Director’s position remains filled. Sorry, all you waiting candidates out there.
Also on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, and their fans immediately burned and looted half the city. Nothing like a “victory” celebration in any major city run for decades by Democrats.
On Monday, cranky old John McCain, working with the execrable Delaware Democrat Chris Coons, introduced a budget compromise bill that would include a unilateral GOP surrender on the whole DACA issue. His proposal was to grant the DACA “kids” (Average age: 26) legal status while getting absolutely no real concessions from the Democrats on other immigration-related issues. That’s our John!
Bug-eyed California Congresscreep Adam Schiff lied a lot this week, even more than usual. He lied shamelessly about what would be in the FISA Abuse Memo, lied about its contents after it was released, lied every time CNN interviewed him, lied in an op-ed he published, lied about the process the House Intel Committee was using to get his own fake memo released, and lied about what that fake memo contained. He lied so much it was pretty much impossible to keep up with, and I gave up doing so at some point Wednesday afternoon.
Tuesday was even more hilarious for Schiff, with the release of an audio tape showing him getting caught in his own attempt to get dirt on President Trump from an agent of a foreign government. Unfortunately for the over-eager Schiff, the guy at the other end of the phone turned out to be just a Russian comedian playing a prank on him. Prank or not, if there was such a crime as “collusion” (there isn’t) Schiff would have to be lawyering up like John Kerry right now.
Wednesday was very eventful, beginning as it did with the release of a raft of new texts from the FBI love birds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, one of which pointed the finger of conspiracy straight at former President Barack Hussein Obama. It was also the day President Trump told reporters he’d be glad to just shut down the government if the budget bill working its way through congress didn’t contain funding for his border wall, a DACA “fix” and other immigration reforms. By Friday, he was signing a budget-busting compromise that contained none of those things.
Wednesday also saw the release of the unredacted Grassley/Graham criminal referral on British Agent Michael Steele – who, along with a bunch of Russians, made up most of the fake Trump Dossier for Hillary Clinton and the DNC – that was sent over to the DOJ a couple of weeks ago. That letter completely confirms everything in the FISA Abuse Memo, and thus has been studiously ignored by the fake news media. Because that’s what the fake news media does.
Finally, Wednesday was also the day when San Fran Nan spent 8 hours imagining she was a senator, as she put on a fake filibuster for all those DACA “kids” (Average age: 26) who she and her Party were about to throw under the bus. By early Friday morning, the bus-throwing had been completed.
FBI informant Douglas Campbell, who has been singing to the FBI about his inside knowledge of the machinations behind the Uranium One scandal, sang before the staff of three congressional committees behind closed doors Wednesday afternoon. His written testimony implicates the Pantsuit Princess and her fake foundation in a classic influence peddling scheme.
Senator Rand Paul put on a real filibuster Thursday night, pissing off a bunch of his colleagues who were hoping to bust the budget quickly and then go get a nice steak at the Capitol Grille.
Virginia Senator Mark Warner was revealed to have been secretly exchanging texts for weeks with the lobbyists for a Russian oligarch in his desperate efforts to make contact with the aforementioned Christopher Steele. This was all with the full knowledge of North Carolina Republican Richard Burr, who is the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, where Warner is the ranking Democrat. If you wonder why that committee hasn’t been involved in the real investigations into Democrat wrongdoing like the House Intel, Senate Judiciary and House Judiciary Committees have been, it’s because Burr and Warner are both deep state skunks, and the GOP chairmen of those other committees know it.
Finally, in case you missed it, Thursday also saw not one, but two resignations by senior officials at DOJ and the FBI who have been named repeatedly in the Strzok/Page texting frenzy: Mike Kortan, FBI assistant director for public affairs, and the chief of the Justice Department’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section, David Laufman. Laufman’s resignation is effective immediately, and Kortan’s is effective next week. If you think these are just normal course of business resignations, you need to play closer attention.
These two hasty resignations now bring the number to 9 senior officials at DOJ or the FBI who have either been fired, reassigned to menial positions or allowed to “resign” in the last 9 weeks. Toss in disgraced former bi-polar FBI Director James Comey, whose firing last May kicked off this systematic housecleaning of deep state bad actors, and it’s an even 10.
In the age of Trump, this is what is known as Winning. Bigly.
Just another crazy week in America.
That is all.
