Buckle up, Folks: “Crossfire Hurricane” Means Things Are About to Speed Up

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some things to think about as we enter the next phase of this war against the Deep State and the Cabal within DOJ and the FBI that first tried to fix the 2016 election outcome for the Pantsuit Princess, and have spent the last 18 months attempting to bring down the duly-elected President of the United States:

  • Wednesday’s “Crossfire Hurricane” article published by the fake New York Times marks the end of the cover-up phase of this conspiracy.  The more you read that article in detail, the more you realize it has, in the effort to provide justification for the Cabal’s actions, in fact exposed pretty much every detail of the conspiracy.
  • One striking aspect of the report is that, where all the previous fake reports filed by the Times and WaPo in their efforts to help cover up for the Cabal cited only “unidentified sources”, you suddenly have people like Sally Yates, Mary McCord and some others talking on the record in an effort to cover themselves.  This never happened while the cover-up was going on.
  • We are now beginning to see selective leaks today of certain specifics contained in the report of DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, which is being circulated at DOJ and the FBI so those who are named in it have a chance to provide responses.  Those leaks are not coming from the good guys, who have kept this process utterly devoid of leaks for 17 months now.
  • The leaks are coming from the targets, in an effort get the information into the public domain so that their media support group can publish more fake articles providing justification for the cabal’s actions.
  • By the way, note that only the bad actors who remain employed at DOJ and FBI get the opportunity to read the report in advance.  Those who have already been given their walking papers – people with names like McCabe and Yates and McCord and Page and Baker and Comey and Brennan and Lynch and on and on and on – receive no such opportunity.
  • This helps explain why the only people talking on the record to the Times were people who no longer worked at those agencies.  It also makes it very likely that the leaks are coming from the bad actors still employed.  Think about it.
  • We need to also remember something key here:  While the Times article claims that the Cabal was very careful to keep its actions secret so as not to lend credibility to Trump’s claims of a rigged election, the truth is that details of what was going on were being leaked all over the damn place in real time.  The media was filled with anonymously-sourced articles detailing accusations about Carter Page, General Flynn and Paul Manafort throughout the summer and fall of 2016.  Where are we supposed to believe this information was coming from?  The answer is obvious, and that leads to the next bullet point here, which is…
  • …there are some in the fake news media who were complicit in all of this.  Reporters and editors and TV hosts who were coordinating efforts and messages and timing of articles with this effort to fix the election, and later with the effort to take down the President.  As the evidence of wrongdoing is presented in the IG report and in court cases that will follow, it will not be all that difficult for independent researchers to go back through the media record to figure out who those complicit individuals are.  This scandal does not end at the exit to the Hoover Building.
  • Finally, one of the leaks about the Horowitz report today is particularly interesting to me:  Real journalist Paul Sperry issued this tweet on Thursday afternoon:

  • If true, this clearly demonstrates the coordinated effort going on between Horowitz and his army of more than 400 investigators and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber.  If you remember, Attorney General Jeff Sessions cleverly let it be known in an interview several weeks back that he didn’t need to create a second Special Counsel because he had had Huber and his team working in coordination with the IG since at least last October.  It is very, very likely that Huber has had at least one, and possibly multiple grand juries convened for months now, and that he will be ready to move quickly towards prosecuting the bad actors once the IG’s report has been issued.

If you think things have been moving quickly up to now, well, better buckle up, because they’re only going to move faster from here on out.

That is all.

Comey, Strzok and Their Crossfire Hurricane Band of Conspirators!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The ratings at the fakest fakety fake news outlet in America, CNN, have been sliding like a comb down Brian Stelter’s crown during the month of May.  The #fakenews channel lost fully 30% of its audience year-over-year through the second week of the month, with its highest-rated hour ranking behind the lowest-rated hour of the day at rival Fox News.  If it weren’t for the fact that every airport in America feels the need to inflict travelers with CNN’s fake reporting 24 hours a day, no one outside of New York, Washington, LA and Seattle would even know who Jake Tapper is.  Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of people.

Gosh, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has been telling them that for a year.  So has George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley.  Glad they finally figured it out. – Presidential counsel Rudy Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney himself, told reporters yesterday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team has admitted to him that they cannot indict a sitting president.  Naturally, CNN, going after all the fake news that’s fit to post at their fake website, went out and found Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal, to claim that Giuliani and the Mueller team are wrong.  Blumenthal is not a former U.S. attorney, and is most famous for claiming to have seen combat that he never saw in Vietnam in order to get elected to the senate.  You can take whose ever word for this you want, but the choice doesn’t seem all that hard to make.

“I was born in a crossfire hurricane, and I howled at the maw in the drivin’ rain.” – Yesterday’s Campaign Update focused on the fact that all roads in the deep state cabal effort within the FBI and DOJ ultimately lead to the desk of FBI Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok.  A few hours after that piece was posted, the fake reporters at the New York Times issued an “investigative” report on the FBI’s “investigation” into “possible Russia ties” by members of the Trump Campaign, another road that leads right back to Strzok.

This report reads as if it was actually written by Agent Strzok and his mistress, ex-DOJ lawyer Lisa Page, filled with all manner of misleading and outright false language designed to cast the FBI’s actions in the best light possible.

To give you an idea of the juvenile delinquent mindset within the FBI at the time, the project to spy (the Times’ fake reporters conveniently avoid that word, but let’s be honest, that’s what it was) on the Trump Campaign was given the name “Crossfire Hurricane,” a reference to a line in the Rolling Stones hit “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.”  Hey, at least they didn’t name it “Standing in the Shadows,” or “19th Nervous Breakdown.”

Here’s a great example of the misleading prose in the piece:

“Crossfire Hurricane spawned a case that has brought charges against former Trump campaign officials and more than a dozen Russians.”

Ok, but exactly none of those charges have anything at all to do with anyone in the Trump campaign “colluding” with anyone from Russia.  The charges against Paul Manafort are for bank fraud and tax evasion that allegedly happened a decade ago.  General Mike Flynn’s guilty plea is for a process charge, and is about to be reversed.  The nonsense indictments of the 13 Russian defendants is for setting up a few thousand social media accounts that pounded negative messages against both Trump and the Pantsuit Princess, and for staging rallies that also attacked both candidates.

But you’ll never see the truth about those indictments published in the New York Times – doesn’t fit the narrative.

Here’s another great example:

The facts, had they surfaced, might have devastated the Trump campaign: Trump’s future national security adviser was under investigation, as was his campaign chairman. One adviser appeared to have Russian intelligence contacts. Another was suspected of being a Russian agent himself.

Those two people the Times is talking about there?  The sad Carter Page and even sadder hanger-on George Papadopoulos.  And those Russian contacts they “appeared to have” and “was suspected” of having?  Turned out to be utter nonsense.

But again, you can’t expect the New York Times to point that out – doesn’t fit the narrative.

And how about Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok?  As in every other aspect of this conspiracy to fix the 2016 election, he was a big player in all of this.  His texts with Page are quoted throughout the article, and many of his interactions with other conspirators like Andrew McCabe, Comey and CIA Director John Brennan are also mentioned, always placed in the best possible light by the shill fake reporters.

The reason for the timing of this fake report is obvious.  About 5 minutes after the fake report was published, the news also hit that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz was circulating his own report in-house at the FBI and DOJ so the principle subjects of the report can have their chance to review it before it is made public.  So the Times, in its role as official media mouthpiece for the deep state, wanted to get this pre-explainer justifying the conspiracy to deny Trump the presidency out into the public domain in advance of Horowitz’s official report.

The Times‘ fake report, obviously dictated by the participants in the conspiracy, is a digraceful and despicable example of how the formerly respectable profession of journalism has pretty much died in America.  That these people are willing to so obviously and openly coordinate efforts with the conspirators who are still working to take down a duly-elected government is a stain from which the fake newspaper can never recover.

But you know what?  I think the Stones ultimately got it right in that song:

But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas
But it’s all right, I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash

It’s a gas, gas gas!

Just another day in it’s all right now, in fact it’s a gas America.

That is all.

All Deep State Cabal Roads Eventually Lead to Peter Strzok

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It was a dirty job, but somebody had to do it. – Texas Congressman and former state Appeals Court Justice Louie Gohmert published a devastating criticism of ex-FBI Director Robert Mueller on Tuesday.  Those of you who still believe that the Witch Hunter in Chief is some sort of sterling individual with an unassailable background of defending truth, justice and the American Way should take half an hour out of your day today and read it.  It will disabuse you forever of those silly notions.

I was already aware of most of the despicable corruption in Mueller’s background, but one item I had not been aware of until reading Gohmert’s piece was the “5 Years Up or Out Policy” he implemented while FBI Director.  This policy required that, “after an FBI employee was in any type of supervisory position for five years, he or she had to either come to Washington to sit at a desk or get out of the FBI.”

This idiotic policy mirrors policies used in the private sector by giant corporations as a means of passively-aggressively keeping their workforce younger and less expensive by encouraging older, more expensive employees to resign or take demotions in place rather than being forced to change job locations.  In practice, corporations see the money saved by forcing younger workers into mid-level management positions before they’re really qualified outweighing the loss of institutional knowledge.

But at the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, this massive loss of experience and institutional knowledge and – perhaps most importantly – historic case knowledge was devastating.  For Mueller, Gohmert speculates that the most satisfying aspect of the policy was that it robbed the agency of more experienced agents who are naturally going to be more likely to question the judgement and authority of senior FBI management.

It also resulted in juvenile delinquents like Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok and Attorney Lisa Page being thrust into positions that were well above their competence or maturity levels.  This juvenilization of the FBI made it much easier for Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and James Comey to come in and utterly corrupt what had become an organization filled with yes-men-and-women.

Again, regardless of your opinion of Mueller, go read the piece.  You’ll be smarter for having done so.

Cause, meet Effect. – Speaking of Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, here’s a great practical example of how Mueller’s efforts to juvenilize the agency, having thrust this emotional midget (as clearly demonstrated by his 50,000 texts with his mistress) into a senior position in the FBI’s counterintelligence division, rendered the Agency more vulnerable to corruption.

We’ve long known that Strzok was one of the agents who interviewed General Mike Flynn in an effort to entrap him into lying to the FBI; we’ve long known that Strzok was smack-dab in the middle of the sham investigation into Princess Pantsuit’s illegal email server; we’ve long known that he played a role in misleading the FISA court into issuing a warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign; in fact, at pretty much every turn in the scheme to fix the 2016 election and then to force Donald Trump from office, Strzok’s name just keeps turning up.  Yesterday, it got even worse.

In a terrific piece at RealClearInvestigations, Paul Sperry reveals that Super-Duper Agent Strzok was also involved in constructing the daily intelligence briefings for then-President Barack Obama.  But it’s not just that he was involved, but that he was in fact hand-selected by then-CIA Director John Brennan to serve as the intermediary for information flow between Brennan and ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey:

A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok.

“Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the source. [emphasis added]

So, what’s the big deal?  The big deal is that Brennan was obviously using the extremely compliant and malleable Strzok to control the information Comey received, and what ultimately got to the President of the United States of America.  Comey’s been running around the country claiming “I don’t know” about all sorts of things that took place under his watch during this period of time, and in many instances those denials are no doubt true because Brennan, through Strzok, made sure he didn’t know.

Brennan’s use of Strzok in this role also potentially resolves this burning question:  Why were Page and ex-FBI General Counsel James Baker jettisoned from their demoted positions a few weeks ago while Strzok has been kept in place?  All three have obviously been serving as cooperating witnesses with the ongoing investigations by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber since last fall – so why were Page and Baker released from their in-house purgatory while Super-Duper Agent Strzok remains sheltered in place?

The answer now seems obvious:  Only Strzok has direct knowledge of the entire information flow on all the DOJ/FBI shenanigans during and following the 2016 campaign, all the way up to the office of the presidency.  So he’s not quite done yet.

The great irony in all of this is that Mueller, the guy whose idiotic policies literally created Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok, is now running the sham investigation designed to deflect the media’s and public’s attention away from the monster that he himself created.  If you were still wondering why Rod Rosenstein specifically chose Mueller to be his Special Counsel, well, now you know.  Mueller not only knows where all the bodies are buried, he literally created them.

Just another day in all roads lead to Peter Strzok America.

That is all.

Friday Was a Terrible, Awful, Very Bad Day for the Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Bug-eyed California Congressman Adam Schiff is back and lying like never before. – The former deep state U.S. attorney who is also the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee has gone eerily quiet in the public space in recent weeks, but he penned an op-ed for the New York Times on Friday.  In that piece, he hilariously advises his fellow Democrats running for congress this year to not talk about impeaching the President of the United States should they gain a majority in the House of Representatives.  His reason?  Why, Democrats don’t want to give the public the crazy idea that they’re trying to “nullify an election.”  Which, of course, is exactly what ol’ Bugeyes has been trying to do in his role on the House Intel Committee for the last 16 months.  Breathtaking hypocrisy.

Speaking of breathtaking hypocrites, race-baiting CNN fake host Don Lemon told some other fake journalist who was interviewing him that Kanye West lacks critical thinking skills.  Lemon claimed that his own critical thinking skills – you know, the kind that have led him to determine that an alleged affair with a porn star is a bigger story than record-low unemployment and peace on the Korean peninsula – tell him that President Trump may not be a “racist,” but he is at least “racist-adjacent.”  By the same token, my own critical thinking skills have allowed me to determine that Don Lemon may not be a raging nitwit, but he is at least raging-nitwit-adjacent.

Several very interesting developments related to the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play on Friday, so we’ll go through them in order here:

National Security Agency Director Navy Admiral Mike Rogers offically retired, turning over his command to Army General Paul Nakasone.  Rogers, if you remember, has played a key role over the last 20 months in uncovering the rampant abuse of the FISA process at the DOJ and FBI, in their efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump transition team, and as it is now becoming apparent, the Trump administration.  Rogers is also the official who met with President-elect Trump shortly after the election, alerting him to the fact that his transition team’s offices in Trump Tower had been bugged, prompting the move of the team to another Trump property the next day.

Interestingly, Rogers’ retirement will allow him to testify in any trials of the bad actors at DOJ and the FBI that take place in the future, something he would have not been able to do had he remained in his job.  Possibly just a coincidence, but a potentially very useful one.

Speaking of bad actors at the DOJ and FBI, former FBI General Counsel and former DOJ lawyer Lisa Page officially “resigned” from the positions they’d been demoted to yesterday.  Both are subjects of investigation for possible criminal wrongdoing in all the various campaign-related shenanigans at the DOJ/FBI during 2016 and 2017.

Page, of course, is the texting buddy of FBI super agent Peter Strzok, with whom she reportedly shared more than 50,000 texts over several months in 2016/2017.  She also served as the legal counsel to the very sweaty ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, one of the main fixers in the Clinton email scandal, among other things.

Baker is under investigation for the apparently very common FBI practice of leaking classified information to the news media.  Naturally, upon the announcement of his “retirement”, Baker received this praising tweet from fired ex-FBI Director James Comey, himself a serial leaker of classified information:

Deep state snakes of a feather, peas in a pod and all of that.

The retirements of these two bad actors likely means that they have provided all the information they have provide to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber and their investigative staff.  My belief is that the only reason they weren’t fired outright last winter was because they chose to become cooperating witnesses.  Like Strzok, they’ve rolled over and made deals in exchange for spilling the beans.  Now they get to go home and get their affairs in order while they await possible indictments and trials.  Just an educated guess, but it sure fits the facts as we know them.

Speaking of IG Michael Horowitz, his long-awaited final report of his investigation into all these bad actors appears to have been pushed off yet again, but this may ultimately be a good thing.  Horowitz sent a letter to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy stating that he was pursuing “new leads” in his investigation of the FBI’s fake investigation into the Clinton email abuse, so Gowdy announced yesterday that he is postponing the date of the IG’s appearance before his committee, which had been planned for May 8.

It may be important to note that the previously-mentioned Andrew McCabe led the FBI’s fake investigation noted above for many months.  Could these “new leads” mean McCabe – who has been oddly silent for the past few weeks after initially lashing out publicly following his firing – has also decided to make a deal with the investigators?  It’s a logical bet.  We’ll see.

Finally (I know this is getting long, but bear with me), Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his merry band of Clinton/Obama hacks had a very, very bad day in federal court on Friday.  They had the misfortune of drawing Federal Judge T.S. Ellis III, a Reagan appointee who has actually read the U.S. Constitution and respects it, as the judge in their case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

When Mueller’s minions began to argue their case against Manafort, which involves allegations of bank fraud that took place many years before Donald Trump ever announced his intention to run for president, Judge Ellis cut in, saying:

“I don’t see what relation this indictment has with what the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” Ellis said, according to Politico’s Josh Gerstein. “What you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment.”

Ellis further questioned by what authority the Mueller team was even conducting such an investigation to charges wholely-unrelated to any “Russia Collusion,” and demanded that they present him with the authorizing documents from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that ostensibly establish their authority.  He gave the hacks two weeks to produce those documents.

This is crucial since Rosenstein himself has refused to produce those same documents to various congressional committees that have made repeated demands to see them.  Rosenstein obviously does not want anyone to know what those authorizing memos contain.

But now a federal judge wants to see them, and a federal judge, unlike congress, has the authority to hold the hacks and Rosenstein himself in contempt of court and toss them into the pokey if they don’t comply.

Oh, my, Mueller and Rosenstein obviously did not see this coming.  Friday, May 18 is going to be a very fun day indeed.

Stay tuned.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down President Trump is falling apart America.

That is all.

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

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just another day in deep state America.

That is all.

The Evening Campaign Update: A Very Eventful Week in Review

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As always seems to be the case, it’s been a really interesting week in many ways.  Let’s review some of the highlights…

The week began on Saturday with President Trump holding a rally for GOP congressional candidate Rick Saccone, during which he referred quite accurately to California Rep. Maxine Waters as “a low-IQ individual” and called NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd a “sleepy sonofabitch.”

In response, every Democrat on the planet called President Trump a racist – which is what they do whenever they want to take a break from calling him Hitler or Putin’s puppet – and Mr. Todd woke up from his 3rd nap of the day.

On the Sunday morning fakenews shows, the fake Indian senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth “Little Never Shuts Up” Warren refused to concede that maybe, just maybe she should take a DNA test in order to prove her fake Indian heritage, which of course doesn’t exist.  She then also made it very clear that she is running for president in 2020 by denying she is running for president in 2020.

The Pantsuit Princess spent the week humiliating herself in India, causing so much reputational harm to the Democrat Party with her verbal gaffes and pratfalls that even many Democrats were begging her to just shut the hell up already and go away.  The problem is, even when she goes away, she doesn’t go away, as the images below attest:

A picture is worth 1,000 words, as they say, and those pictures travel all over the world in a micro-second.

On Monday, Irish Beto O’Rourke, the former “Rising star” of the Texas Democrat Party, committed political hari-kari before an audience at the SXSW Festival in Austin, coming out forcefully in favor of gun control in a state in which gun rights are not a partisan issue.  Irish Beto got him a standing ovation from the SXSW audience, but he’d get his butt run out little cafes and barbershops in places like Big Spring, Cotulla, Poth and Hico by Republicans and Democrats alike for uttering his anti-gun heresies.

The Democrats recovered somewhat on Tuesday, as their guy, Conor Lamb, defeated Saccone by a scant margin in the special congressional election.  The GOP announced later in the week that it will ask for a recount and an audit of the automated voting machines used in the election, after receiving reports of irregularities from many voters.  But at the moment, the seat appears to belong to Mr. Lamb.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson got his walking papers via a presidential tweet early Wednesday morning, after having one disagreement too many with his boss.  He’ll be replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, assuming the Republicans can muster up 50 votes to confirm him.  We’ll see.

Also on Wednesday, students all over the country walked out of classrooms and took to the streets to pretend they actually know something about gun control.  The hooky-playing trio below perfectly captured the spirit – and level of actual knowledge – on display at the rallies:

*sigh*

By the way, Democrats want to give 16 year-olds like these – who were likely swallowing Tide pods at parties a month ago – voting rights.  Of course, Democrats would advocate for giving chipmunks and weasels the right to vote if they believed chipmunks and weasels could be as easily brainwashed to reliably vote for Democrats as these kids have been.

Wednesday was a very busy day, and to round it all out, economist Larry Kudlow was named by the President as the replacement for the fired Gary Cohn – a major upgrade – and we found out that the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility had given AG Jeff Sessions a firing recommendation related to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a decision Sessions must make by the end of the day on Sunday.  As I write this on Friday afternoon, Sessions naturally has made no announcement.  We’ll see.

Thursday came, and this happened:

Is any further explanation really necessary?  Nope.

On Friday, thanks to great real journalist Mollie Hemingway, we found out that deep state cabal FBI agent Peter Strzok had a personal relationship with the original judge in the Mike Flynn case, Rudolph Contreras.  Texts between Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, reveal that the two planned to try to exert influence Judge Contreras when they discovered that he had been appointed to serve on the FISA court.

This latest of a series of revelations derived from the Strzok/Page text treasure trove may well explain why Judge Contreras was hastily removed from the Flynn case in early December, after Contreras had accepted Flynn’s guilty plea for lying to the FBI.  Of course, we now know that Flynn was not really guilty of that crime, but pleaded as he did because Robert Mueller and team of inquisitioners were driving him into bankruptcy and threatening his family.  Hopefully, that great injustice will be corrected soon.

Liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz called on the Democrat Party to fire Deputy DNC Chairman Keith Ellison for his lying about his close ties to the despicable anti-Semite Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.  Dershowitz also said that any Democrat congress member who has associated with Farrakhan should resign their office.

Dershowitz’s demands were unsurprisingly met with stony silence from every Democrat on earth and the fake news media outlets that serve as the Democrat Party’s propaganda wing.

Some things never change.

That is all.

That OPR Recommendation On Andrew McCabe Sure Is Interesting

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, Andrew McCabe might be fired after all.  That, at least, is the decision Attorney General Jeff Sessions is suddenly faced with, six days before the swamp skunk McCabe is scheduled to retire with full benefits on March 20.

The stated reason the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) gives for its recommendation to AG Sessions is that McCabe improperly leaked information related to the 2016 FBI investigation into the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal on multiple occasions.  This finding was made by Inspector General Michael Horowitz during his 14 month-long investigation into FBI/DOJ wrongdoing.

Here’s the irony in this situation:  the OPR report accusing McCabe of leaking to the media was made public today through…wait for it… leaks to the media.  What in the world are we to make of that?  Let’s face it, it’s not like the OPR has to this point been right on top of all the bad actors in this DOJ anti-Trump cabal that has been in action since mid-2016.  Where is the OPR report on Peter Strzok?  On Lisa Page?  On Bruce Ohr?  Any of the other already-identified bad actors?

So, why do we suddenly see this particular action on this particular day? I see three possibilities:

  1. The OPR is full of bad actors itself, and is trying put Sessions in a situation in which he has two options, either one of which will generate media controversy.  I’d rule this one out, because what’s a little media controversy to Jeff Sessions or the Trump Administration at this point?  I mean, who really cares?;
  2. Horowitz is clearing the playing field for the pending release of his report by starting to roll out a series of administrative recommendations based on his findings to discipline bad actors; or
  3. This is an isolated situation, and the OPR is simply acting in the normal course of business on the only recommendation it has thus far received from IG Horowitz.

Wait.  There is a fourth possibility, which is that McCabe was originally escorted from the premises in February but not technically fired as a way of giving him a carrot to cooperate with the IG’s investigation and other DOJ investigations into various Obama-era scandals that we know to be ongoing.  In this scenario, he is now facing the likelihood of termination – and loss of retirement benefits – because he has refused to become a cooperating witness.  Today’s leak to the media would be designed to put further pressure on him to cooperate.

Also in this scenario, we haven’t seen any similar firing recommendations on Strzok, Page, Ohr or others because they are cooperating with those investigations.

Occam’s Razor would dictate that Option 3 is most likely to be true, because it is, at least on the surface, the simplest explanation.  But when you think below the surface, that doesn’t really explain why it is that bad actors who have been publicly identified by the AG and IG themselves – Strzok, Page and Ohr – remain employed at DOJ and the FBI, though in “reassigned” positions, and have had no similar OPR report against them leaked to the press.

The only two scenarios that take all of that into account are Option 2 and Option 4.  Just for fun, I’ll go with number 4.  We’ll know for sure soon enough.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Dropped a Bomb – Hardly Anyone Noticed

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I’ve been traveling this week, so I just noticed this myself this afternoon.  In an interview with Fox New’s Shannon Bream Wednesday night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions dropped a bomb when, after asked about allegations that officials within the FBI and the DOJ had violated the FISA process in order to spy on the Trump Campaign, he said the following:

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

Wait, what?  When did that happen?  Why all the secrecy?  What is this person’s name?  What else might the person be looking at?  Here are some thoughts on what the answers to those questions might be.

First, you have to look at this from Sessions’ point of view:  He leads the DOJ, and thus the FBI as well.  Having his own DOJ lawyers investigate the FBI and DOJ anti-Trump cabal’s abuses would present a clear conflict of interest, as I pointed out last week.

My bet is that he took this action after he became aware of potential FISA abuses shortly after he assumed office in March of last year.  At that point, during his first briefing with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, he would have been made aware of the IG’s investigation into the FISA and other related matters, and thus would have become aware that he had a set of truly bad actors in his midst.  That is likely something Sessions already suspected, since it had become obvious during his confirmation hearing that he had personally been under illegal surveillance, but a briefing from Horowitz would have confirmed that reality.

Sessions would not have wanted to formally appoint a special counsel at that time, because that is a very public act, one which requires the public identification of the person who was being named.  Remember also that, at that time, Horowitz’s own investigation had only been up and running for a few months, meaning that some of the bad actors we know about today had not yet been identified, or had cases fully developed against them.

Formally appointing a special counsel at that time would have given all of these people the chance to either flee, cover their tracks, or even lawyer up before cases could have been fully developed.  Remember that we have only begun to publicly find out people like Strzok, Ohr, Page, McCabe and Baker since the first of  December.  Remember also that the disciplinary actions taken against them have been designed to keep them close and controlled.

It is also very interesting to note that none of these and others who have been identified as bad actors have been quoted in the press at all.  This is in direct contrast to James Comey, who went around leaking and singing like a jaybird for a few months after President Trump fired his sorry butt, and who is about to release a book next month.

This silence by the other bad actors most likely means one of two things:  Either these people have lawyered up and are keeping quiet to protect themselves in preparation for being prosecuted, or they are actually cooperating with Horowitz and Sessions’ unnamed outside lawyer in their ongoing investigations.

The quote from Mr. Sessions is a clever reference to the fact that he has had an outside prosecutor working on all of this stuff for quite some time now.  It is also most likely another move to set the stage for the impending release of IG Horowitz’s own report.  Unlike Horowitz, this unidentified special prosecutor would have the power to convene a grand jury – and may have already done so – and quickly begin issuing subpoenas based on the recommendations contain in the Horowitz report.

Thus, Sessions next statement from the interview:

I am well aware we have a responsibility to insure the integrity of the FISA process. We’re not afraid to look at that. The inspector general — some think that our inspector general is not very strong; but he has almost 500 [employees], most of which are lawyers and prosecutors; and they are looking at the FISA process. We must make sure that it’s done properly, and we’re going to do that. And I’ll consider their request.

He’ll not only consider their request, he’s had a special prosecutor preparing the playing field for quick action on those requests for months now.

Clever.  Boom.

That is all.

Lisa Bloom Becomes A Strong Contender For The Title of Worst Person In The World

  • GOP Senators Marco Rubio and Bob Corker finally decided to stop their grandstanding and do the right thing on Friday, announcing they plan to vote in favor of the final tax bill reported out by the House/Senate Conference Committee.  With John McCain in the hospital and unlikely to be present to vote when the bill is brought to the floor next Tuesday, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell needed at least one of the two holdouts in order to get to 50 votes.  Thus, unless something changes over the weekend, the GOP Senate Majority will finally, at long last, keep one promise its members have made to the American people.  How about that.
  • Congressional Democrat leaders of course continued their disgracefully false and inflammatory criticisms of the bill, with San Fran Nan leading the pack, calling it “daylight robbery.  And with every iteration, the GOP tax scam becomes even more cowardly, outrageous, dishonest, brazen theft from middle-class families, giving money from them to the richest people in our country and to corporations. It’s a monumental con job.”
  • In other words, everything the Republicans do is going to kill everybody:  Repealing Obamacare was going to kill everybody; pulling the U.S. out of the fraudulent Paris Climate Accords was going to kill everybody; building the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines is going to kill everybody; and now the tax bill is going to kill everybody.  If nothing else, the Democrats are at least consistent in their rank idiocy.
  • Meanwhile, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words), who has been extremely critical of the incredibly corrupt leadership at the FBI, went to speak at a ceremony for Quantico graduates.  When Attorney General Jeff “Sleepy” Sessions introduced him by saying “A few days ago, we were assembled in this auditorium and the announcement was made you would be attending and this room erupted with energy,” the assembled cadets and FBI field agents erupted with a rousing standing ovation.  No doubt FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok and his mistress exchanged texts expressing their disapproval, and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe became quite sweaty.  Then again, he always seems to be quite sweaty.
  • Speaking of super duper people, how about that Lisa Bloom, huh?  What a gal, amiright?  Man, has she been in the news a lot lately.  First, she agrees to represent the detestable Harvey Weinstein and gets caught peddling damaging information on accuser Rose McGowan, not to mention allegations that she and Weinstein were offering bribes to some of his victims to stay quiet.
  • As if that wasn’t bad enough, on Friday Mizz Bloom was revealed to have been offering bribes…er, gobs of money during the 2016 election campaign to women if they would accuse then-candidate Donald Trump of sexual harassment.  Writing for The Hill, John Solomon and Alison Span – two of the handful of real, actual journalists still working in the national media today – report that one woman was repeatedly hounded by Mizz Bloom to come forward, with the money being offered to her rising from an initial $5,000 to a fairly amazing $750,000 before the pesky daughter of notorious hack Gloria Allred was finally convinced to just go away.   At one point, this woman told the reporters that Bloom flew all the way across the country to pester her while she was actually in the hospital.  My goodness.
  • Making this episode even more egregious, Bloom’s scam – which apparently included at least four potential accusers of Trump – involved securing the payola money from big Democrat donors, and then… wait for it…wait for it…TAKING A CUT FOR HERSELF!  Solomon and Span report that Bloom “acknowledged a standard part of her contracts required women to pay her commissions as high as 33 percent if she sold their stories to media outlets.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?
  • Bloom justified her exhorbitant cut by telling the reporters that “As a private law firm we have significant payroll, rent, taxes, insurance and other expenses every week, so an arrangement where we might receive some compensation to defray our costs seems reasonable to us and is agreed to by our clients.”  Holy cow.  But then, why would we expect anything else from the daughter of Gloria Allred?  This hot mess apple obviously did not fall far from the hot mess tree.
  • At this point, it is fair to say that Lisa Bloom has become a serious challenger to Cecile Richards for the title of Worst Person In The World.  Kim Jong Un is highly jealous.

Just another day in Hot Mess America.

That is all.
