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 Dropped Some Twitter Bombs Sunday Morning

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

While so many Trump supporters have spent the last couple of days tossing tantrums about the President’s decision to sign the horrible Omnibus spending bill, some good things have been happening without getting much notice from the fake news media.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Just a few days after the mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida, I wrote a piece that laid much of the blame at the feet of an insane Obama-era policy that rewarded school administrators and law enforcement officials for refusing to enforce the law against students who engage in criminal activity.  In the ensuing weeks since, more and more people in the news media have begun to report on the scam.  Better late than never.

This growing attention level has now led to a positive outcome:  The Trump Administration announced on Friday that it will eliminate the Obama policy.  Just one more element of the insane, un-American Obama legacy falls by the wayside.

The fake news media really hasn’t paid much attention to this reality yet – it’s been too busy trying to whip the public into a gun-grabbing frenzy and reporting on a porn startlet – but with his staff moves over the last month, President Donald Trump has basically purged his team of senior advisors of globalists.

  • Senior Economic Advisor Gary Cohn – gone.  Replaced with the Reaganite Larry Kudlow.
  • Secretary of State Rex Tillerson – gone.  Replaced – if he can be confirmed – by CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
  • National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster – gone.  Replaced by John Bolton.

Assuming Pompeo is ultimately confirmed, the Trump Cabinet and team of senior advisors will basically be devoid of the open borders/new world order internationalist influence.  While it is true that Bolton is an interventionist who favors aggressive U.S. military involvement in civil wars all around the world, he is very much on board with the Trump plan to dramatically increase border security.

Bolton also promises to “clean house” once ensconced in the job, eliminating dozens of Obama holdovers and other internationalists who are not loyal to President Trump, according to a report at Foreign Policy on Saturday.  Taking this action will almost certainly eliminate many, if not most of the leaks coming from the White House, some of which have been criminal in nature.

Bottom line, 14 months into his first term, Trump is finally putting together the team of leaders he should have had in the first place.  Again, better late than never.

 

Early this morning, President Trump issued the following two tweets:

These tweets are potentially very important, particularly the last sentence in the first one:  “Build wall through M!”, the “M” standing for “Military.”

The federal budgeting process is very complex and arcane, and one thing to remember in this current situation is that this “Omnibus” spending bill is just that:  A spending bill, not a formal budget.  It is a compilation of suggested spending levels for each executive branch department and the military, along with an array of restrictions that dictate how some, but not all of that money can be spent.

It’s important to also remember in this context that, on December 21, the President took the step of declaring a national human rights emergency related to child-trafficking, a declaration that would allow Mr. Trump broad discretion in taking action to crack down on those who participate in such human rights abuses.  It’s key to note that much such child trafficking involves moving kidnapped children in and out of the United States of America.

A second point to note is that, on Friday, the President notified congress that, in signing the Omnibus, he is accepting the funds under the provisions of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.  This law also gives the President broad discretion in making decisions to refuse to spend funds that have been authorized by congress, as well as allowing him to reallocate spending priorities within the budgets of individual executive branch departments.

Finally, lets also note that, last October, the President declared a national emergency related to opioid abuse.

Now, read the text of that first tweet again, in the context of what is laid out above.  “Building a great border wall, with drugs (poison) and enemy combatants pouring into our Country, is all about National Defense.”  Combine that with “”Build wall through M!” and, it’s not unreasonable to think that Mr. Trump is at least considering the possibility of reallocating some portion of the beefed-up military budget to pay for building the wall along the southern border.

Doing that would of course create a media firestorm, but hell, what else is new?  And such a decision would also inevitably lead to a raft of lawsuits filed by leftwing activist groups before carefully-selected Obama-appointed federal judges, and possibly even a lawsuit from congress challenging the action.  But at the end of the day, such cases would have to go before the Supreme Court, where the President would most likely prevail, given the constitutional separation of powers.

As I’ve repeatedly pointed out, contrary to what the fake news media wants you to think, President Trump doesn’t just belch stuff out onto his twitter feed at random.  His tweets almost always have a purpose.  Often that purpose is to elicit a specific reaction from the fake news media.  Sometimes the purpose is to send up a trial balloon to gauge how the public would respond if he took a specific action.

I think Mr. Trump was doing both with those two tweets:  elicit a specific response from the media, and then gauge the public reaction to the media firestorm before deciding whether to move ahead.

 

Just another day in there really is good news out there if you look for it America.

That is all.

How to Think of Trump’s Tariff Proposal

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

 

So, President Donald Trump spent all day Friday getting hammered by the fake news media, Democrats and many Republicans in congress, and leaders of other countries all over the world for his announcement Thursday afternoon that he plans to implement tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum next week.

If that reaction mix sounds familiar to you, it should.  It’s exactly the same reaction from a very similar mix of players he received last summer when he announced he was pulling the United States from the Paris Climate Accords.  Coincidence?  Not really, no.

Think about it:  What did President Trump say when he cancelled Barack Obama’s probably-illegal executive agreement that committed an entire country of 330 million people to the Paris Accords with no review or vote from congress?  He identified the Paris construct as nothing more than a wealth redistribution scheme that would suck trillions of dollars out of the U.S. economy and redistribute that wealth among the other nations who were signatories to the agreement.

In saying that, the President was 100% correct.  The Paris Accords have literally nothing to do with “saving the climate” by convincing countries to reduce their air emissions.  If it did, then why have none of the other nations who remain in the Accords met their emissions commitments under the deal?  That should give you a clue.

President Trump looks at the import/export equation on steel and aluminum in exactly the same terms.  He sees a situation in which a country like China gets to export its steel into the U.S. while paying no tariff at all, while at the same time levying a 50% tariff on U.S. steel coming into China, and sees that as just another scheme to redistribute U.S. wealth and jobs to another nation.  It’s the same concept.

The hilarious part of all of this is that so many members of congress and in the news media were shocked at the President’s Thursday announcement, just as almost all of the same people were shocked last summer about the President’s Paris decision.  Good lord, he promised on at least 100 occasions during the 2016 campaign to place tariffs on imports of all manner of goods, including steel and aluminum, if he were to win the election.

Since becoming President, Mr. Trump has been laser-focused on keeping the myriad promises he made during that campaign.  As many have detailed, he has already, just 14 months into his term in office, kept the great majority of those promises.  So why is anyone surprised in any way, shape or form that he is now going about keeping his promise to America’s steel and aluminum industries?  It would have actually been a real surprise had he not chosen to do so at some point soon.

I personally have mixed feelings on the tariff issue, and am not endorsing these tariffs just as I do not endorse the President’s recent implementation of tariffs on imports of solar panels.  But to Mr. Trump’s credit, he was completely open and honest about his plans to implement such tariffs during the campaign, and it is also to his personal credit that he remains committed to keeping his promises, whether I or anyone else agrees with him on the issue or not.

So, tariffs and Paris – there’s your analogy.  It even sort of rhymes.

[Addendum]  The other thing we must remember is that, with Donald Trump, literally EVERTHING is a negotiation.  This is not the end game in his mind – this is the start of a negotiation with China mainly, but with other countries as well. His goal is not to start a trade war, it is to change behaviors. He also very likely has in mind using these tariffs as an item to trade in exchange for something else down the road.

The setting of these tariffs is not the ending point for Mr. Trump, it is the starting point.

That is all.

Today’s The Day The Trump Tax Cuts Save The GOP Congress, If Only Congress Will Let Them

  • Hey, have you ever wondered whatever happened to that lovely, delightful Jill Stein?  You remember her, don’t you?  That “Green” Party candidate who received some rounding error-level number of votes in last year’s presidential election, and then held the country hostage for a month while demanding recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin?  Oh, yeah, THAT Jill Stein? Isn’t she a pistol?
  • Well, it turns out she is alive and sort of well, but not completely well, because the Washington Post is reporting today that she is now under investigation by the Robert Mueller Witch Hunt, er, coup d’etat, er, Special Counsel operation.  Why?  Well, I don’t really care.  I just love the poetic justice involved here.  You go, Bob.  You’ve finally stumbled across your witch.
  • Speaking of Witch Hunts, a couple dozen protesters who don’t want their taxes cut found themselves hunting around Capitol Hill for Nancy Pelosi Monday afternoon, when the House Minority Leader failed to show up for their sparsely attended event at which they planned to express their righteous outrage at having to give less money to the federal government.  Pelosi had agreed to attend the event when she was told that hundreds of her fellow leftist nitwits were going to show up for it, but when that crowd failed to materialize, well, San Fran Nan flew the coop.  No word whether or not she was riding a broom when she did.
  • Justice Department Lawyer Bruce Ohr, recently demoted when it was revealed that he held regular meetings with the sleazy operatives of the Fusion GPS firm – where his wife was employed – during last year’s presidential campaign, had his scheduled testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee postponed until later this week.  Committee members rescheduled his appearance after they received a new tranche of long-withheld documents from the Justice Department earlier in the day, and they wanted time to review those documents before hearing from Mr. Ohr.
  • Another cog in the DOJ Deep State cabal, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, is scheduled to testify later today before the House Intelligence Committee, in what is supposed to be a closed-door session.  It will be interesting to see if McCabe turns up, and how long it takes California Democrat Adam Schiff or some other Democrat to leak the substance of the hearing to CNN if he does.
  • Meanwhile, today is Tax Cut Day in the United States Congress.  Yes, friends, the Republican majorities in both houses of congress, who have been making unfulfilled promises to you for eight long years, are finally, at long last, on the verge of actually keeping one of them!  Yay!
  • The clincher for getting this largest tax cut in American history sent to the President’s desk appeared to come late Monday when the fakest fake Republican in the Senate, Maine Senator Susan Collins, announced that she would vote ‘yes’ on the bill.  Once it became clear that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has the critical mass of needed votes, Senator From the News Media John McCain fled town so he wouldn’t be a part of a resounding success for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words).
  • In all seriousness, this is life or death for the Republican Party’s congressional future.  Get it done, and you have a chance to hold your majorities in both houses of congress in the 2018 mid-term elections, maybe even increase your Senate advantage.  Fail, and you have no chance.  Literally no chance at all – 2018 would become an inevitable wave election favoring the Democrats if this vote fails.
  • Because the fake news media has demonized the bill with talking points coordinated with the Democrat Party – its standard procedure in such matters – the bill does not currently poll well.  But wait until February, when the new tax withholding tables go into effect, and literally every working American sees that his or her paycheck has increased dramatically, and those polls will turn right around.
  • Once that happens, you’ll see the same thing start happening to those “generic congressional preference” polls, which lately have shown the Democrats with a 7-10 point advantage.  The economy is already booming, with the New York Fed now projecting 4% economic growth for the 4th quarter.  More and more Americans are going back to work every day now, and if they also see they are taking home more of their hard-earned money thanks to a bill that every Democrat opposed, the complexion for the 2018 mid-terms will turn around on a dime.
  • Today’s vote is one of the most crucial votes in the history of the GOP.  No wonder John McCain wants no part of it, and we aren’t hearing a peep of support from Mitt Romney or George W. Bush.  That tells you all you need to know about the quality of “conservatives” the Republican Party had been nominating for the presidency before Donald Trump came along.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.

The Mueller Coup d’etat Unwinds a Little More

  • Heck, I didn’t know he’d gone anywhere. – The UK Metro is reporting this morning that the “comeback album” for white rapper Eminem – the natural inheritor of the proud legacy of the great Vanilla Ice (ok, I’m JK) – is not being well-received by what I have no doubt is his legion of fans.  The British writer says that the collection of what I guess are ‘songs’ is getting “quite a whammy of negative comments.”  And that just breaks my heart.  Can you tell?
  • I had no idea you could take the over/under bet on whether or not we go to war. – Senator Lindsey Graham is apparently angling for a future career as a Las Vegas bookmaker.  “I would say there’s a three in 10 chance we use the military option,” Graham predicted in an interview with a fake reporter at The Atlantic. If the North Koreans conduct an additional test of a nuclear bomb—their seventh—“I would say 70 percent.”  So, if any of you are out in Vegas this weekend, put $100 down for me on the under.  I’ll pay you back.  No, really, seriously, I’m good for it.
  • Is there an over/under on the Mueller Investigation ever finding any evidence of actual “collusion”? – The slow-rolling coup d’etat led by Robert Mueller continued its unraveling on Thursday, as Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) released documents showing that the statement given by former FBI Director James Comey in July 2016, which “exonerated” Princess Pantsuit of wrongdoing in her blatantly illegal emailing activities was heavily edited.  More to the point, it was heavily edited and watered down during early May, two full months before Comey had even bothered to interview the Coughing Crook or about a dozen other key witnesses in the case.
  • The original text of the memo, written by Comey himself, states several times that the Fainting Felon was guilty of “gross negligence” in her handling of classified emails.  That’s important because, in the federal statutes, “gross negligence” in handling classified information happens to be a crime.  But the edits watered that charge down to “extreme carelessness”, to which the governing federal statues make no reference.  Voila!, the Cackling Candidate was magically exonerated.
  • The revelation of this editing process within a highly-politicized FBI does deep damage to the already tattered reputation of James Comey, who just happens to be a key witness in the Mueller witch hunt.  After all, the entire basis used by the oily Rod Rosenstein for the appointment of Mueller in the first place was Comey’s illegal leaking of his meeting notes to the New York Times for publication.  If Comey lied to the American people about what he had found during the Clinton investigation and when he found it, and lied to multiple congressional committees during testimony on the same subject matter, why would anyone believe anything else he has to say?  The man is obviously a skunk and a snake, the very worst kind of DC Swamp creature, which I told you all he was back in July 2016.
  • Coming as it does on the heels of so many other revelations this week about various players in the Mueller coup d’etat staff, even some hardcore Democrats are starting to come to the realization that Mueller’s own credibility has been irrevocably damaged.  One such hardcore Democrat is Mark Penn, who served as the head pollster for Bill Clinton, and also worked on Princess Pantsuit’s senate campaign.
  • Appearing on Fox News last night, Penn told host Martha MacCallum that he believes both Mueller and the FBI face a “crisis in public confidence.”  Penn cited a recent poll conducted by Harvard in which 54% of respondents agreed that Mueller himself has conflicts of interest that prevent him from conducting himself fairly, and a whopping 63% believe the FBI is stonewalling congress.  He also noted that this poll was conducted before this week’s flood of new revelations about the horrific behavior of FBI super agent Peter Strzok and various other players on the Mueller coup staff.
  • Folks, our country is in a major crisis.  It is in that crisis because the utterly corrupted leadership at the FBI and various intelligence agencies during the Obama Administration set themselves up as a de facto fourth branch of government, a branch unaccountable to anyone.  The evidence we now have at hand clearly shows that, early in 2016, that fourth branch engaged itself in a focused conspiracy in coordination with the Clinton Campaign and the DNC to try to deny Donald Trump the presidency.  After Trump won the election last November, that conspiracy morphed into a focused  effort to undermine him and to ultimately remove him from office.
  • The Harvard poll cited by Mr. Penn shows that, despite the best efforts of the fake news media to avoid reporting these realities, a clear majority of Americans have begun to figure this all out.  This is a big problem for Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller, because the flood of revelations isn’t going to slow down anytime soon,  and they really haven’t left themselves any easy way to end the conspiracy they’ve been leading without their own culpability being fully revealed.
  • The next few months are going to be a very interesting and perilous time for our country.  Better buckle up.

Just another day in the Coup keeps unwinding America.

That is all.

The Road Goes On Forever And The Fake News Never Ends

  • The road goes on forever, and the fake news never ends (with apologies to the great Robert Earl Keen) – After 10,000 texts between FBI Agent Peter Strzok  and his lover, Justice Dept. lawyer Lisa Page, were made public, the three national broadcast networks very predictably disgraced themselves with their fake coverage of the matter.  But then, it would have been actual news had they behaved otherwise, and these networks are not in the business of making or covering real news anymore.
  • None of the networks mentioned the two federal employees were engaged in an extra-marital affair, and none mentioned the most disturbing message of all, the one Strzok sent to Page reading, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he [Trump]  gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”
  • Wait, what?  The “Andy” to whom they’re referring is obviously FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, but what is this “insurance policy” the two apparently discussed with McCabe, a policy that would presumably undermine Trump should he ultimately win the election?  No one at any of the three networks had the curiosity to ask, much less report on that key question.
  • Nor did any of the networks cover the later exchange that begins with Page texting, “maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” to which Strzok – who apparently thinks he is the FBI’s version of Batman – replies, “I can protect our country at many levels”, presumably referring to whatever secret “insurance policy” had been hatched in the office of Andrew McCabe.
  • All of which probably adds up to the real reason why McCabe suddenly decided to cancel his long-scheduled Tuesday appearance before the House Judiciary Committee at the last minute – he may need time to coordinate with the DNC and the fake media on a set of talking points about this “insurance policy”.
  • But the 20 million or so Americans who for some inexplicable reason still get their “news” from ABC, NBC and CBS all went to bed blissfully unaware of any of this, which, of course, was the networks’ collective goal.
  • Elsewhere, fake host Anderson Cooper and the PR hacks at CNN had to scramble to come up with an explanation for a highly-inflammatory tweet that was sent out from Cooper’s Twitter feed early Wednesday morning.  After President Donald Trump tweeted that “The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right!”, the Cooper account quickly came back with  “Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.”
  • Cooper then went into panic mode, first tweeting that he  “just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account. i have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets. We are looking into how this happened.”
  • CNN officials, already seeing what little credibility they had remaining – which, let’s face it, wasn’t much – swirling down the Anderson Cooper toilet, later issued an absurd explanation that said that “His assistant inadvertently left his phone unlocked and unattended at the gym early this morning, and someone took his phone and sent the tweet.”  Which of course is ridiculously and hilariously false.
  • Either Cooper sent the tweet or his assistant sent it in a fit of pique.  That’s the only rational scenario that would explain this.  But rather than just admit that, apologize for the incident, and move on, CNN wants you to believe that some random guy at the assistant’s “gym” picked up the phone, somehow realized he could shoot a tweet from Cooper’s Twitter account, paged through the news to figure out what he wanted to tweet about, and then sent that inflammatory tweet, all while the assistant was working out or whatever he was doing at his “gym.”
  • The main thing this proves is that whomever it was at CNN that came up with this cock and bull story has no future whatsoever writing scripts for James Bond movies.

Just another day in the fake news never ends America.

That Sad Moment When You Realize The FBI Is As Fake As The Fake News Media

  • I want to believe in the FBI.  Hell, who doesn’t?  Who doesn’t want to believe that our nation’s highest federal law enforcement agency is a stand-up deal, that we can trust the agency and its leaders to be honest and do the right thing?  Of course we all hope that is the case.  Which is why it is so distressing this morning to learn that the FBI’s stonewalling of multiple court orders and congressional committees not only continues, but has in fact escalated.
  • Late on Monday, we learned that the Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, had suddenly and without real explanation cancelled his long-scheduled appearance to testify before the House  Intelligence Committee today.  There was no immediate response from anyone on the Committee, but Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted Monday night that “congressional sources” told him that a subpoena would likely be issued to try to compel his appearance.  That’s fairly ironic, since it took a threatened subpoena in early November to convince McCabe to agree to testify in the first place.
  • Pergram further reported that his sources believe McCabe cancelled his appearance due to  a concern that he would be questioned about Justice Department muckety-muck Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie, who we also learned on Monday worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 campaign.  Ohr, of course, was recently “reassigned”, i.e., marginalized within the DOJ when it was learned that he held meetings with Fusion GPS – the firm that was hired by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC to collude with Russian officials to compile the fake Trump Dossier – throughout the 2016 election campaign.
  • So, because he was “concerned” that he might be forced to answer questions he obviously does not want to answer, McCabe apparently chose what has become FBI standard policy in 2017, which is to join the agency’s ever-growing stonewalling of any testimony or records production that might reveal the truth about what senior officials at the FBI and the DOJ were up to during the 2016 election cycle.
  • A DOJ spokesman is making the rounds of the TV morning shows claiming it’s all just an innocent “scheduling error,” but that’s just another obvious dodge.  How is any American supposed to have confidence in a “law-enforcement” agency whose obvious working policy is to blatantly and repeatedly stonewall efforts by others to discover if laws were violated?  It’s an absurd expectation that will only be complied with by those who have been brainwashed to believe anything their government tells them to believe.
  • Asking Americans to do that is no different than the hilariously absurd comment by Atlantic Editor David Frum on Sunday that “mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media…They get partial pieces of the truth. So in the process there are going to be overshoots and undershoots.”
  • Frum’s idiotic remarks would have some level of validity if there were ever any “undershoots.”  But what we see from our fake national news media where President Trump and his Administration is concerned is a constant stream of laughable “overshoots”, false reports that always, without exception, cast a negative light on the President.
  • Think about it:  over the past 2-1/2 years we have seen dozens, if not hundreds, of instances in which a fake reporter from a fake media outlet like the NYTimes, the WaPo, CNN, and NBC rushes to get out a “bombshell” report that is then repeated throughout the entirety of the fake media as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump”, only to have said the fake media outlet who filed the initial report have to retract or “correct” it because it turned out to be entirely false.  We saw three such instances last week alone, and pretty much no week has gone by during 2017 in which we have not seen at least one example of this pattern taking place.
  • Yet, you would be at great pains to produce a single example over the last 30 months in which the fake news media made, in Frum’s parlance, a “mistake” that was false in a way that worked to the President’s benefit.
  • Here’s a clue for David Frum:  when a long series of events flow in only one direction, those events are not “mistakes”;  rather, they are the norm.
  • When it comes to the FBI or the fake news media, no American can trust them anymore.  The biggest “mistake” anyone can make is to try to defend their institutionalized behavior.

Just another day in fake FBI America.

Never Forget That Cleaning The DC Swamp Is Literally A Life Or Death Struggle

  • President Donald Trump was on fire at a rally in Pensacola Friday evening, where he took on an array of his adversaries, from the fake news media to (sadly) the FBI to huckster attorney Gloria Allred.   Commenting on the legal and political system at one point, the President of the United States said “this is a rigged system.  There’s no country like ours, but we have a lot of sickness in some of our institutions.”  Truer words have never been spoken.
  • After 8 years of an anti-American, Saul Alinskyite presidency, pretty much all of our institutions are sick.  That was, of course, the Obama plan.  Here are some examples of our corrupted institutions:
    • The courts, where Obama-appointed judges held up a perfectly lawful travel ban for 9 months before the Supreme Court finally slapped them down on a 7-2 decision last week;
    • NOAA, where a group of climate “scientists” spent the last 8 years systematically revising the global temperature records in order to invent “global warming”;
    • the fake news media, which literally sold its soul in 2008 to get Obama elected, and now stands as a de facto opposition political party to the American people;
    • the EPA, which spent the last 8 years doing everything it could to depress the U.S. economy with an avalanche of regulations knowingly based on bad science;
    • the State Department, which continues to fight against the agenda of a duly-elected President;
    • And of course, the Department of Justice and the FBI, which continue to sponsor Robert Mueller’s slow-rolling coup d’etat effort, while at the same time stonewalling an array of information requests by the courts and various congressional committees.
  • That list could go on and on, but these are some of the major highlights.  The point being that if you had thought cleaning out this swamp was going to be easy, you should have by now have disabused yourself of that notion.  This is going to be hard, and as we’ve seen with the sham Mueller “investigation”, the swamp denizens are going to fight back every step of the way.  This is life or death for them – if Trump succeeds, many of them, like Hillary Clinton, end up in prison.
  • To understand the truth of this, all one need to is go back to the incident during the campaign, when now-disgraced NBC fake host Matt Lauer actually decided to ask the Pantsuit Princess some fairly tough questions that had not been pre-approved by Donna Brazile during an interview on the peacock network.  After it was over, staff behind the scenes reported that the Coughing Crook screamed at NBC executives and went into an expletive-filled tirade:  “If I lose, we all go down and that Fascist F**k will have us swinging from nooses! What the f**k is wrong with you idiots?”  She wasn’t joking, folks – to her, and many others in her and Obama’s orbit, this was literally a life or death campaign.
  • So have patience – this is going to take awhile.
  • In other news, Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell announced late Friday that she will be leaving her post at the end of the year.  Powell, an ardent NeverTrump nitwit who should have never been hired, has long been rumored to have been the source of many of the negative leaks that flooded out of the White House during the first several months of the Administration.  Good riddance – she will not be missed.
  • Speaking of White House leaking, isn’t it interesting that, since rumors circulated in late summer that the President and Chief of Staff John Kelly had started feeding differing information to suspected leakers on-staff in order to see what ended up in the WaPo or NYTimes, those leaks have slowed to a trickle?  And that many of the leaks that do still occur end up being shown to be false and blowing up in the fake news media’s collective face?
  • Funny how that works.

Just another day in cleaning out the DC Swamp America.

That is all.

President Trump Should Let Chuck And Nancy Have Their Government Shut-Down

  • First Lady Melania Trump stopped in at a local Whataburger while on a visit to Corpus Christi on Wednesday.  While the nitwits who infest Vanity Fair and the NYTimes are surely only interested in which shoes she wore to order her Whataburger with cheese and fries, I am officially in awe of our First Lady after that gesture to the people of Texas.  If you’ve never had a Whataburger and aren’t familiar with the company’s history and the place it occupies in Texas culture, you won’t understand why.  But trust me, every native Texan does.
  • It’s Senator Smalley Day in the U.S. Senate! – That’s right:  Today is the day when the terminally smarmy jackass Senator from Minnesota – who, let’s all never forget, acquired his seat solely due to massive voter fraud – announces that he has decided he is gropey enough, he’s perverted enough, and dog-gonnit, women hate him.  Because of all of that, he will resign his illegitimately-obtained seat and let Minnesota’s Democrat Governor appoint his replacement, who will get to serve through 2020.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
  • After congress passed an actual law in 1995 mandating the U.S. move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the Israeli capital of Jerusalem, President Bill Clinton signed the law and promised to get it done, but then caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  George W. Bush, when running for president in 2000, also promised to make this move, but then, once in office, caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”   Barack Hussein Obama, when running for president in 2000, also promised to make this move, but then, once in office, caved in to pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  Are we beginning to detect a pattern here?
  • Donald J. Trump, when running for president in 2016, promised to make this move, and then, once in office, began to receive massive pressure from the terrorists who run Palestine not to do it, because they said it would negatively impact the Middle East “peace process.”  Faced with the previous 22 years of the very definition of insanity, President Trump yesterday realized that there is no “peace process” if our country keeps just giving in to the terrorists who run Palestine, and announced that he’s going to actually obey the law congress passed in 1995, and move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, where it has always belonged.  So nice to have a POTUS who doesn’t pander to terrorists, and who is actually focused on keeping the promises he made during his campaign.
  • This action by President Trump is, in a microcosm, the main reason why he is POTUS today.  He was elected to do the things his weak-kneed predecessors refused to do, to use the office of the presidency to protect the interests of American citizens and America’s allies, priorities that no president has really focused on since Ronald Reagan.
  • All of which brings me to this week’s negotiations over extending the continuing resolution that keeps the government funded.  With Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan threatening to shut down the government because they want amnesty for all the “Dreamers”, weak-kneed Republicans in congress are running scared because they know the fake news media will put the blame for the shut-down on them.
  • My question to them is, so what?  Have you learned nothing from history?  The last time the Republicans got blamed by the fake news media for shutting down the federal government was 2013, when Ted Cruz single-handedly dragged the party kicking and screaming to negotiate something meaningful into the budget bill under consideration at the time.  14 months later, the GOP went on to win a massive tidal wave victory in the next mid-term congressional elections in 2014.  Why?  Because by shutting down the government, even for just a few days, Republicans in congress energized their base by demonstrating they actually do have the ability to stand for something.
  • But this week, every congressional Republican is begging President Trump to save them from getting blamed for shutting down the government again.  What is wrong with this picture?  Do these people never learn that they are going to get negative media treatment no matter what they do, for the simple fact that they are Republicans?  How many times must that lesson be pounded into their brains before they quit hitting their head up against the same brick wall?
  • Now is the time to do something meaningful, folks.  Just kicking the can down the road for the thousandth time only helps the Democrats.  Not only should the GOP refuse to include anything about the “Dreamers” in this CR, they should refuse to pass anything that doesn’t include funding for the border wall.  This constant surrendering in the face of the first sign of adversity is the main reason why congressional Republicans are detested by a growing number of naturally Republican voters.
  • This is a potential teaching moment for President Trump.  There is no doubt his instinct will be to let Chuck and Nancy shut the government down if they want to, and then get on this Twitter feed and pound them for as long as it lasts.  That’s exactly what he should do, for the benefit of the Republican Party and the country.
  • The Republicans in congress have been repeating this exact failed strategy in budget negotiations for far too long.  It’s up to President Trump to stop the insanity.  Shut.  It.  Down.

Just another day in stop the madness America.

That is all.
