America Deserves Better Than Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller

The Friday the 13th Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Just getting some things off my chest on a beautiful Friday afternoon in Texas…

Inflation – Has anyone besides me bought balloons at the local Party City outlet that are much larger than this “giant” Trump Baby balloon that CNN’s been talking about all week?  Seriously, I could fit that thing in the back of my SUV, fully inflated.

Priorities – Does it bother anyone else that Rod Rosenstein wants to dedicate about 10 times as many DOJ and FBI personnel to investigating President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee than he was willing to dedicate to investigating last October’s massacre in Las Vegas?

Hacks (in more ways than one) – So, these 12 “Russian intelligence officers” indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his band of circus clowns “hacked the DNC server”? Would that be the same “DNC server” that the DNC refused to allow the FBI to take a look at? That “DNC server”?

Coordination – Mark Warner’s on TV as I type this demaning that President Trump cancel next week’s summit with Vladimir Putin due to Mueller’s action today.  Timing is everything with these un-American creeps.

Backfires – Mueller’s action today is a blatantly obvious repetition of the ham sandwich indictments he tossed out at 13 Russian defendants a few months ago:  Just thrown out there with no evidence presented, focused on defendants that almost certainly will never be brought to trial, and timed to do maximum damage to relations between the U.S. and Russia.  Dumping these things out on the Friday before the summit between Trump and Putin is a despicable disgrace.

Justification – Regardless of the suspect nature of the indictments and the obvious timing issues, I just keep coming back to wondering why do we need a Special Counsel for any of this?  We are now well more than a year into this fake investigation and the public has still been given no legitimate justification for the appointment of this Special Counsel to begin with.  What was the underlying crime that originated such an investigation?  There is no crime of “collusion” in the federal statutes, and to this date, the special counsel has failed to charge a single U.S. citizen related to any ostensible crime in any way related to such “collusion.”

Stonewall – Even worse, Rosenstein himself has personally stonewalled multiple congressional committees exercising legitimate oversight responsibilities, steadfastly refusing to produce the memos he personally authored appointing the special counsel and then later expanding his mandate.  This lack of transparency is simply unacceptable in a free society.

America and Americans deserve better than this.  A pox on all their houses.

That is all.

Tales of Liberal Woe Can be so Enlightening

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Is there nothing the all-powerful, all-evil Trump cannot do? – Writing in the UK Guardian, some fake journalist named Brigid Delaney just published what is quite possibly the single dumbest anti-Trump screed ever written.  Yes, yes, I know it’s an extremely crowded field with tons front runners with recognizable names – are you listening, George Will, Bill Kristol, Max Boot? – and that we are still early in the race, given that President Trump very likely still has more than six years to serve in the office.

But the nondescript Ms. Delaney may have just overtaken the lead heading around the the first turn with this little ditty, during the course of reading of which you are practically guaranteed to drop at least 10 points from your IQ.  Not even Max Boot can compete with that.

In order to keep your IQ intact, all you really have to do is read the headline to know the entire essence of Ms. Delany’s personal tale of Trump-induced woe:  “I Stopped Going to the Gym Because of Trump.  Now I can’t Open Jars.”  That’s really the essence of the piece – no, really, it is – and since I’ve made the personal sacrifice of reading it for you, you should keep your own IQ intact and pursue a more interesting and intellectually rewarding enterprise, like boiling eggs or cleaning your toilets.

Gosh, for a minute there I thought Canada must have elected Joe Biden. –  18 years after he apparently got a little “forward” with a female reporter, Canadian Boy Wonder Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is having his own #MeToo moment up there in the Great White North.

The reporter, a woman named Rose Knight, isn’t actually pursuing any grievance against the Boy Wonder, but came forward on Saturday after Canada’s own fake news media had dredged up the old allegation, which was reported at the time but quickly forgotten.  The Boy Wonder himself is having a fairly hard time figuring out how to square his current denials of any impropriety with his statements from back in the day.

When the story came up in 2000, Trudeau was quoted as saying that, had he known Ms. Knight was a reporter,  “I would never have been so forward.”  As the then-28 year-old son of a former Prime Minister who was not then involved in politics, the Boy Wonder could get away with that pretty frank admission.

But in today’s #MeToo brave new world, now serving unspectacularly as the Prime Minister his own self, Trudeau is forced to change his story, which is now the tortured statement consisting of “I do not feel that I acted inappropriately in any way, but I respect the fact that someone else might have experienced that differently,” followed by the even worse “Often a man experiences an interaction as being benign or not inappropriate and a woman, particularly in a professional context, can experience it differently. We have to respect that.”  To which any thinking person can only say, Yikes, Justin, get better talking points writers.

But don’t fret overly much for the Boy Wonder’s future:  As the bumbling leftist hand-picked by Canada’s globalist king pins to to steer his nation into certain economic disaster, he’s doing a great job, and there’s no way they’re going to let him be taken down by some no-account reporter.  He’s Canada’s Barack Obama, after all, so he’s immune to stuff like this.  Still, it is kind of fun to watch him twist in the wind a little bit over something that supposedly took place decades ago.

Jim Jordan says “Welcome to the party, pal.”

Speaking of liberals having their eye-opening moments, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has been conspicuously outspoken regarding the illegitimacy and brutishness of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his gang of thugs, is suddenly finding himself a social outcast in his hometown of Martha’s Vineyard.  It seems the elitist snobs who populate the wealthiest island in America don’t cotton to one of their own defending the Constitution, even when that one of their own happens to be one of the country’s foremost experts on constitutional law.

Dershowitz details his experiences of being shunned by his own kind in a very revealing interview with New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters.  It’s well worth reading in full, but if you want to see the essence of it, that is captured in the first question and answer:

Q: You’re no stranger to defending people who are unpopular. Is this actually worse than when you defended O.J. Simpson?

A: Of course. Or Claus von Bulow or Leona Helmsley or Michael Milken or Mike Tyson. This is much worse than all that, because in those cases people were critical of me, but they were prepared to discuss it. They were prepared to have a dialogue. Here, the people that I’m objecting to want to stop the dialogue. They don’t want to have the conversation. It will upset people at the dinner party or on the porch. This is like safe spaces in colleges.

Exactly.  There are no longer any adults populating the American political left.  In Donald Trump’s America, they’ve all become nothing but a collection of spoiled, entitled children, clamoring to go back into the safe spaces they all occupied while Barack Obama was in charge.

Those days are gone now, the real world has returned, and like the 8 year-old boy who takes his ball and goes home, they won’t countenance anyone who refuses to play by their rules.

Dershowitz should be looking for new friends, because these people never were that to him.

Just another day in liberals getting their wake-up calls America.

That is all.

It Really is Time for Robert Mueller to Fold up Shop

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Hey, somebody get the Pope on the line – those are not the approved DNC/fake media talking points.  Not at all.” – Pope Francis, whose messages have for the past 18 months been pretty much right in line with those of the Democrats and fake news media here in the U.S., told an Italian family association on Saturday that the modern practice of abortion is akin to ‘Nazi eugenics practiced “with white gloves,’ and said the only real families are those based on marriage between a man and a woman.”

The Pope’s sudden shift to fealty to long-time Catholic orthodoxy after years of publicly straying from it no doubt came as a shock to American leftists in and out of our fake news media who have spent the last 3 years claiming that the anti-abortion Donald Trump is the second coming of Adolph Hitler.  Somehow, I’d expect to see this singularly politically-oriented Pope to issue some form of “clarification” of those remarks in the next few days, but yesterday was fun, anyway.

Do as he says, not as he does… – Nitwit leftwing movie director “Meathead” Rob Reiner, who has spent the last 2 years publicly lashing out at Donald Trump, publicly denounced fading actor Robert DeNiro and other celebrities for… wait for it…publicly lashing out at Donald Trump!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

Hey, if you want to compare someone to Hitler, I give you… – Angela Merkel, the long, long, longtime Chancellor who has presided over the destruction of the native German culture over the last decade with her open borders policies, seems to finally be in real trouble with the citizens there.  Go figure.

Merkel was barely able to cobble together a governing coalition in the country’s parliamentary system after the recent national elections, and her popularity has only deteriorated since that time.  If you were wondering why she appeared so desperate during last week’s G7 conference, it was because she was hoping against hope to rope President Trump into a stupid and counter-productive (for the U.S.) trade deal there.  Obviously, she came away frustrated, telling her top advisors afterwards that she was literally depressed.

Now we know why.  In an interview with the BBC on Saturday, German Member of Parliament Kai Whittaker predicted that Merkel could be ousted from her Chancellor’s seat as soon as the end of this coming week, as the population tires of seeing crime rates rise dramatically and the cultural rot brought about by Merkel’s open borders policies.

The ousting of Merkel, perhaps Europe’s pre-eminent globalist leader, would be a blessing for the entire world.  Hopefully the German people have finally had enough.

But, but, but…which summer? – Newsmax is reporting that “White House sources” tell the news organ that they expect to see a final report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller “by summer’s end.”  That and $2.55 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks, if you can stand the odor.

But hey, they could be right. – Why?  Because Mueller gave up long ago any effort to prove that Trump or anyone on his team actually “colluded” with Russian agents to influence the 2016 elections.  Instead, he has spent the last half year doing everything he could to dummy up a case that the President, in firing ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey, somehow “obstructed justice,” even though the President has an absolute constitutional right to fire the FBI Director or any executive branch employee for any reason whatsoever.

That’s a pretty high bar right there.  And guess what?  It just got a hell of a lot higher.

The report issued last Thursday by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz absolutely devastates any argument which contends that James Comey did not need firing.  This guy needed firing far more than Spiro Agnew, more than Tony Hayward, more than Reince Priebus, more even that any contestant on the Celebrity Apprentice ever did.

Sure, the Executive Summary of the IG report says that investigators did not find any “documentary evidence” that Comey’s decisions related to the fake Clinton email investigation that he and FBI Super Duper Agent and aspiring latin lover Peter Strzok were politically-motivated to favor the Pantsuit Princess, but the body of the report lays out obvious political motivation behind almost every decision. Even more devastating for the Mueller effort to frame the President, the IG report lays out multiple abject violations of FBI and DOJ policy in the conduct of that investigation, and nothing stinks more within a government bureaucracy than violations of policy.

If you want to get somebody in a big government bureaucracy fired, you don’t do it by pointing a finger and shouting “he voted for Hillary Clinton!”, you do it by documenting the fact that he violated Section 1, Paragraph S, subparagraph ii of the agency’s rules of conduct.  The Horowitz report painstakingly documents multiple such major violations on Comey’s part, including the assumption of the authority of the Attorney General’s office, which he obviously did not possess.

Combine that with the memo laying out the reasons why Trump should fire Comey – written by none 0ther than Rod freaking Rosenstein, the guy who appointed Mueller in the first place – and Mueller would be laughed out of court by most any judge in the country, even some Obama appointees, if he attempted to accuse President Trump of obstruction of justice.

The other reason why we might indeed see Mueller wrap things up fairly soon is because the polls have turned decidedly against him and his team of Democrat shills.  We have to remember that the main reason why the Mueller investigation was created in the first place was to try to create a flood of public opinion in favor of impeachment, a flood so overwhelming that even Republicans in congress could not resist it.

To achieve that, Mueller and the fake news media organs to which his team have leaked a steady stream of false reports would have had to drive the President’s job approval ratings down into the 20s.  But with President Trump’s approval ratings now sitting in the mid-40s – thanks to an unending stream of #WINNING – just 5 months before Election Day, that effort has obviously come up a crapper.

Given that obvious failure, what reason is there to keep going?  Keeping Paul Manafort in jail on a bunch of irrelevant charges?  Ok, but any U.S. attorney can take up that case.  Is the hopelessly inept hanger-on George Papadopoulous really a menace to society?  Please.  And be honest, Mueller is desperate to avoid even going to trial against Concorde Management and the other Russian nationals he indicted on transparently ridiculous charges.

So, given all of that, don’t be shocked if we do indeed see a final report from Mueller by the end of summer.  One thing’s for sure – this farce cannot end soon enough.

Just another day in it’s time for Mueller to end the farce America.

That is all.

Morning Joe Takes the Fake News Media to New Low With Concentration Camp Nonsense

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Ok, let’s see here guys, we’ve already destroyed the attorney/client privilege in the Cohen case, we’re doing our best to destroy the rules of evidence in the Concorde case, what should we destroy next?” – The obvious answer that came back from one of his evil minions to Special Counsel Robert Mueller was “Hey, let’s kill the bail system!” because that’s what he’s now doing in the case against Paul Manafort.

Let’s first note that Manafort, who served as the Trump Campaign Manager for all of 49 days, is not charged with anything even remotely related to what Mueller is supposed to be investigating.  The charges against him are for alleged crimes that took place long before Donald Trump even decided to run for office, things like bank fraud, tax evasion and failing to register as an agent of a foreign government when he lobbied for the Ukraine years ago.

By the way, that “failure to register as an agent of a foreign government” charge could be applied to probably half the lobby firms on K Street in Washington today, which includes many, many former members of congress who don’t want their efforts on behalf of the world’s unsavory regimes made a matter of public information.  So, if Manafort goes to prison for that charge, perhaps we need a special counsel appointed to just do a general roundup of people based on it.  That would be fun.

That said, all of these are crimes and if he is guilty of them, Manafort should pay his price to society.  They just should have been pursued by someone other than a Special Counsel supposedly investigating allegations of “Russia Collusion,” which is of course a fantasy.

But back to the question of bail:  Manafort had to this point been free on bail awaiting trials that frankly may never come, given the clownish behavior of Mueller and his team.  But on Friday, based on a 1 minute phone call he had with a person who may or may not be a witness in a trial that may never occur, Mueller convinced the Obama appointee judge (of course) in the case to revoke Mueller’s bail and toss him in the pokey.

I don’t really have any use for Paul Manafort, but I do value our constitutional rights.  Mueller’s ongoing assault on those rights, supported in this case by an Obama judge who has likely never bothered to read the Constitution, is of deep concern to all of us.  The precedents being set by the tactics this gang of thugs is getting away with would make Stalin proud.

There is no limit to the utter depravity of the American left. – Way back in December of 2016, as the Trump transition team was making plans for the new administration, I told you about illegal immigrant detention centers that the Obama Administration had managed in Texas and Arizona border towns for years.  I noted that liberals and the fake news media had remained studiously silent about these centers while a Democrat was in the White House, but would inevitably start referring to them as “concentration camps” once a Republican was in the office.

Well, it has taken longer than I had assumed it would, probably because every leftist lunatic in the country has been so mindlessly consumed with their Russia Collusion fantasy play, but they’ve finally gone there.  Yesterday morning, the execrable Joe Scarborough led the pack of rabid ferrets that MSNBC calls “journalists” down that path on his “Morning Joe” program, while an entire panel of fake MSNBC analysts resorted to the same absurd characterization later in the day on something called “MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle.”

These comments are an absolute disgrace.  They are completely, absolutely false, they are based on abject ignorance and mindless hatred of President Trump, they demean our Homeland Security and Border Patrol personnel and Health and Human Services personnel (who actually manage the facilities) alike, and they indeed characterize our entire society as just another Nazi Germany.

The truth about these facilities is that they are very well appointed with comfortable furniture, video games, pool tables, modern bathrooms, clean beds and plenty of food.  They are there to hold illegal adults who have committed a crime against our country temporarily while awaiting their immigration hearings.  Their children are held in similarly-appointed, separate facilities while they are separated from their parents.

U.S. citizens who are arrested for committing crimes against our country are also separated from their children.  Those children who don’t have other relatives willing to take custody of them go into similar facilities initially while authorities figure out what to do with them.

No one is ever happy when children are separated from their parents, but this is what happens when parents commit crimes and are arrested for them.  When a Democrat is President, the fake news media says nothing about any of this, because this is just the normal course of business in pretty much every civilized nation.  But when a Republican is in the White House, why, America is suddenly Nazi Germany all over again.

It’s detestable, demented and depraved.  Anyone spreading this outrageous lie should be shunned from society.  A pox on all their houses.

Just another day in depraved leftists trying to destroy America.

That is all.

Robert Mueller and his Team: Riding the Clown Car

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The death of the final paltry remnants of customer service is upon us.  –  A federal judge has ruled against the Jeff Sessions Justice Department, approving the merger of Time Warner and AT&T, in what will be the largest merger of media/entertainment giants in American history.  It will also be the merger of two of the three worst customer service organizations – in addition to Comcast – ever conceived by evil human brains.

Fair warning:  If you are already sick of the horrible, demented, disgraceful lack of service you receive as a customer of one of these two behemoths, just wait until you see how you feel once this merger is completed, your bill has doubled, and the very predicable layoffs and other “streamlining” and “right-sizing” measures have been implemented in the newly-merged “customer service” department.  Waterboarding will have nothing on what these people have planned for you.

Why hasn’t this guy been indicted yet?  In all seriousness, how is he still walking around a free man? – Despicable former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe pulled a stunt designed to attract fake news media sympathy on Tuesday, filing suit in federal court against the DOJ and the FBI for “violating procedures” in firing him back in March.  McCabe’s skunky lawyers complained to in their court filings that DOJ is “withholding documents” from the defense in the case, to which House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley no doubt responded, “Welcome to the party, pal.”

Before anyone gets to feeling too sorry for this imperious jackass, let’s all remember that the causes for his firing are incredibly well-documented in a 40-page report issued by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz a few days prior to his being escorted from the premises.  That report meticulously lays out a case in which McCabe is revealed to be a serial liar who perjured himself multiple times during the course of 2016 and 2017, as he worked feverishly to protect the Pantsuit Princess and damage a duly-elected President of the United States.

It is important to note that Horowitz also issued a criminal referral to Jeff Sessions related to McCabe’s actions, and that that referral is yet to be acted upon.  While we can hope – and may be even likely –  that this is just a case of the wheels of justice turning slowly, it is fair to note that McCabe – whose despicable behavior on the job began to come to light early in 2017 – has already been walking around a free and unindicted man far longer than any ordinary American accused of similar crimes would have been.

So if you’re looking for sympathy, Andy, you’ll have to go to CNN and the New York Times, where serial liars get to host hour-long shows in prime time and reporters are sanctioned to sleep around with government officials so they can leak national secrets to their depraved, brainwashed audiences.  You won’t be getting any from any of us hicks out here in flyover country.

Speaking of DOJ lawyers hiding the ball… – Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of aspiring circus clowns took their efforts to save face in their fake indictments of several Russian nationals to new heights on Tuesday.  They filed a motion asking the judge in their fake case against Concord Management and Consulting to allow them to hide the evidence they have supposedly collected against the Russian company until trial.

This of course is a breathtaking departure from normal rules of disclosure, in which the prosecution is required to timely provide the defendants the evidence upon which they built their case.  In case you’re wondering why Mueller would take this extraordinary step, the answer is obvious:  The charges against Concorde and the other Russian national defendants are extremely flimsy – perhaps completely unsupportable – and Mueller and his evil minions never expected any of them to actually show up for trial, given that the U.S. and Russia do not have a reciprocal extradition treaty in place.

Mueller’s motion hilariously claims that the documents in question are highly sensitive, even resorting to the standard DOJ dodge that some of them identify “sources, methods and techniques used to identify the foreign actors behind these interference operations.”

Let’s all remember what these Russian defendants are accused of:  They are accused of spending a paltry sum of money that didn’t amount to a pinprick in the context of 2016’s $2 billion presidential contest to create a bunch of fake accounts on Twitter and Facebook and spread propaganda designed to create confusion and discord among the U.S. electorate.  They are also accused of organizing a handful of protest rallies, alternately opposing both Donald Trump and the Fainting Felon.

Any 20-something year-old kid living in his grandmother’s basement could have figured all this out in about 2 days, but Mueller would have us and the judge believe that doing so required the Justice Department and FBI to engage in all manner of top secret skullduggery that would make a great John LeCarre’ novel.

This motion comes a month after Mueller’s request to indefinitely delay the trial was summarily rejected by the judge, so now he and his team of dishonest Clinton- and Obama-donors are scrambling around trying to figure out what in the hell they’re going to do.  After all, you can’t go to trial with a case that doesn’t exist.

Won’t it be fun when Mueller has to drop this case?  President Trump just needs to leave this guy alone, because he’s a clown.

Just another day of Robert Mueller is a clown America.

That is all.

Trump Uses the Pardon Power to Reverse the Thuggish DOJ/FBI Legacy

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats in Action!  Part I – The Daily Caller reports this morning that an admitted pedophile who once threatened to assassinate President George W. Bush is now an “independent” congressional candidate thanks to the efforts of despicable former Virginia Governor and long-time Clinton bag man Terry McAuliffe.

Per the Caller:

“Nathan Larson is an independent candidate in Virginia who admitted to HuffPost that he’s a pedophile who bragged in blog posts about raping his ex-wife and fantasized online about having sex with young children.

Larson is also a convicted felon who wouldn’t be eligible to run for office in Virginia had McAuliffe not restored Larson’s rights to vote and run for office in 2016.

Larson was sentenced to 16 months in prison in October 2009 for threatening to kill the president.”

Virginia law cancels voting rights for convicted felons, but McAuliffe, in a desperate effort to fix the 2016 election in his state for the Pantsuit Princess, issued an executive order in 2016 restoring voting rights to more than 10,000 convicted felons in the state, most of whom he obviously expected to vote Democrat.  Gee, wonder why?

So now Larson’s running for Congress thanks to the despicable actions of a despicable man.  Way to go, Democrats!

Democrats in Action!  Part II – Speaking of Virginia Democrats, some guy named Dan Helmer is running for congress in the state’s 10th congressional district against incumbent Republican Barbara Comstock.  Although completely overshadowed by all the hysteria surrounding Roseanne Barr and Samantha Bee, Helmer’s new TV ad created controversy yesterday because it equates the current President of the United States to Osama Bin Laden.

I would say this is a new low for Democrats, but is it really?  They’ve gone so low so many times that it becomes almost impossible to tell anymore.

One thing is for sure:  Virginia’s Democrats are just loading up the November ballot with scumbags, which they obviously believe is the right strategy for appealing to the state’s voters.  Hey, they voted for McAuliffe twice, so sound legit to me.

Democrats in Action!  Part III – Famed liberal poll analyst Nate Silver, who was hilariously wrong about every.  little.  thing during the 2016 election campaign, has a post up on his website this morning titled…wait for it…”Which Pollsters to Trust in 2018.”  I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump issued a pardon on Thursday for conservative film-maker Dinesh D’Souza, in an obvious jab at both former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara (who Trump fired) and former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey (who Trump also fired).

D’Souza had been made an example of by the corrupt Obama Justice Department and FBI after he had produced a film critical of America’s Biggest Mistake, Mr. Obama.  Bharara and Comey’s FBI turned D’Souza into a literal political prisoner for having contributed $20,000 to a New York political candidate, allegedly exceeding the contribution limits by encouraging others to also contribute.  The filmmaker plead guilty after Bharara had Comey’s agents raid his home and threatened to add additional charges for the same alleged actions that could have resulted in 5 years in federal prison.

In other words, Bharara was using exactly the tactics that Special Counsel Robert Mueller used to browbeat General Mike Flynn into his guilty plea last November – do it, or we’ll completely destroy your life.  This is Gestapo stuff, not anything that should happen in America.  But don’t kid yourselves:  it happens all the time.

Talking to reporters later in the day, the President speculated he might also pardon Martha Stewart, who then-FBI Director Mueller’s thugs also browbeat into a guilty plea for lying to investigators in 2004.  You may have thought the home designer served her 5 months in prison for “insider trading” – the allegation that led to the FBI’s inquisition of her, but you’d be wrong.

Curiously – and somewhat hilariously – the President also speculated that he might even pardon former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who was sent to prison for allegedly selling the senate seat Obama vacated in 2007 to the highest bidder.  Fans of the Celebrity Apprentice will remember that Blago actually was a contestant on that show while he was awaiting trial.  Since his conviction, evidence of FBI thuggery and prosecutors withholding of exculpatory evidence have come to light, which should at this point surprise absolutely no one with actively firing synapses in their brain.

The U.S. Attorney in that case?  Patrick Fitzgerald, the infamous Bush-era Special Counsel who basically framed Scooter Libby, who, by the way, Trump also pardoned a few weeks ago.  The FBI Director at the time?  First Robert Mueller, later James Comey.   So that case is a two-fer.

Now that he’s pretty much finished erasing the horrid, un-American legacy of Barack Obama, President Trump seems intent on erasing the equally repugnant legacy of America’s Gestapo.  Awesome.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

If the Rosenstein Stonewall Continues Today, the President Must Fire Him

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Don’t look now, but Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk, after running up the cost of his infamous Model 3 from $36,000 to as much as $100,000, is threatening to actually do something good for a change:

As of early this morning, 88% of the vote in that poll was in the “yes” category.  Hilariously, the “yes” vote actually went up throughout the day, even as the fake news media was filing a raft of negative stories about Musk’s threat to create a site that would monitor media credibility.  Thus, Musk has already been proven correct in his assertion that the fake mainstream news media has no credibility at all outside of the tiny, shrinking echo chamber all the fake journalists and the Democrat politicians they support inhabit.

Go for it, Elon – it would be a great public service, and you wouldn’t have to worry about cost overruns for once.

But, but, but…Obama told us that wasn’t going to …oh, hell, nevermind. – Speaking of a fake news outlet whose reporters desperately need to be monitored by Elon Musk, the New York Times is reporting this morning that it turns out that the Mullahs over in Iran have been developing inter-continental ballistic missiles throughout the entire time they were negotiating the most one-sided “deal” in world history with Barack Obama and John Kerry, and have continued their development program during all the time since the deal supposedly ensured that would not happen.

So, it turns out that what Obama really told the Mullahs is that “if you like your ICBM program, you can keep your ICBM program.” [rimshot!]  I got a million of ’em, folks, I’ll be here all week.

Documents?  What documents?  Wait, you asked for documents?  Sorry, we don’t got no stinking documents… –  Well, it’s another episode of Rod Rosenstein Sandbags Congress over at the Justice Department today.  The oily Deputy Attorney General will hold not one, but two meetings with congressional leaders today to discuss long-outstanding congressional demands for documents related to the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play.

The first meeting will be with only Republicans Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy because, well, Nunes and Gowdy don’t want this stuff being leaked to CNN, the NYTimes and the Washington Post in real time.  That meeting will be held at noon, ET.

The second meeting takes place at 2:00 ET, and will include the entire congressional “Gang of 8”, which includes four Republican leaders and chairmen and four senior Democrats.  This will include California Democrat Adam Schiff, so you can expect the confidential discussions that take place in this meeting – or at least the Democrat spin on them – to be all over CNN by about 3:00 ET.

Democrats had spent much of the day on Wednesday demanding they be included in the first meeting, but Nunes refused to allow that because he knew if he let Schiff and the other Democrats in that meeting, it would all be leaked and the dishonest media would attempt to blame it all on Nunes.  Because that’s what the Democrats and their media enablers do.

Both meetings were set up by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, after the principles had met at the White House on Monday with President Trump.  Kelly will reportedly attend both meetings, as will FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

Two key documents in play here are the two memos that Rosenstein wrote last year first authorizing the appointment of Robert Mueller to be Special Counsel, and then expanding the scope of Mueller’s investigative authority.  Nunes, Gowdy and other congressional GOP committee chairmen have long sought these documents so that they can understand exactly what in the hell it was that Rosenstein authorized Mueller to do.  It’s important to note that similar authorization memos for previous special counsels were readily made public by DOJ within days of their being issued.

But Rosenstein is desperate to prevent any Republican member of congress from seeing these memos in an un-redacted state.  At this point, we don’t know why that is, but his desperation is palpable and certainly seems suspicious under the circumstances.  FBI Director Wray has also been a willing facilitator of the stonewalling on these and other documents, so no one should expect him to be an advocate for transparency.

We can hope the presence of Coats and Kelly – neither of whom have participated in previous meetings on this subject – might lead to some sort of breakthrough in today’s meetings.  Barring such an outcome, it is getting to the point at which the President is literally obligated to fire Rosenstein for his obvious obstruction efforts.

Yes, that would create a firestorm in the fake news media, but as I’ve said many times before, so what?  That happens every day to this President.

The American people deserve to know why Mueller was appointed and exactly what he was authorized to do, and most importantly, under which U.S. laws that authorization was made.  Rod Rosenstein has a big high-powered title, but at the end of the day he is just another bureaucrat.  Bureaucrats do not get to deny the public’s right to know unless elected officials empower them to do so.  We can’t count on elected representatives like Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell to do anything about this, so the decision will ultimately fall to Donald Trump to make.

If the Rosenstein stonewall turns today’s meetings into just more Kabuki Theatre, it’s time for the President to make that call.

Just another day in the Rosenstein act is really tiresome America.

That is all.

Monday Will be a Very Bad Day for the Deep State Cabal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The liberal education bubble in action! – The Pantsuit Princess was given an award by Harvard University on Sunday for her “transformative impact on society.”  Wait, wait, wait – before you guffaw, or vomit at the absurdity of this, think it fully through.

The Coughing Crook has indeed had “transformative impacts” on our society.  Here are a few examples:

  • She “transformed” the U.S. State Department into a classic mob influence racket;
  • She “transformed” 20 percent of U.S. uranium supplies into Russian hands;
  • She and her husband “transformed” a charitable foundation into another mob influence racket;
  • She “transformed” the FBI into a full-fledged criminal enterprise.

But hey, it hasn’t been all bad.  At the end of the day, the Fainting Felon, more than anyone else, gave us Donald J. Trump as President.  Thanks, Hillary!

Today is going to be a big, big day. – I closed yesterday’s Campaign Update by point out that a tweet President Trump issued on Saturday indicated that he was considering taking the big step of declassifying some of the documents that DOJ and the FBI have been withholding from congress for many months.  Little did I know that that tweet was just the trickle of the presidential Twitter flood to come.

By noon Central Time, President Trump had issued a series of nine additional tweets, the text of which reads as follows, in the order in which they were posted:

  • Things are really getting ridiculous. The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!
  • ….At what point does this soon to be $20,000,000 Witch Hunt, composed of 13 Angry and Heavily Conflicted Democrats and two people who have worked for Obama for 8 years, STOP! They have found no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren’t looking at the corruption…
  • …in the Hillary Clinton Campaign where she deleted 33,000 Emails, got $145,000,000 while Secretary of State, paid McCabes wife $700,000 (and got off the FBI hook along with Terry M) and so much more. Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam.
  • Now that the Witch Hunt has given up on Russia and is looking at the rest of the World, they should easily be able to take it into the Mid-Term Elections where they can put some hurt on the Republican Party. Don’t worry about Dems FISA Abuse, missing Emails or Fraudulent Dossier!
  • What ever happened to the Server, at the center of so much Corruption, that the Democratic National Committee REFUSED to hand over to the hard charging (except in the case of Democrats) FBI? They broke into homes & offices early in the morning, but were afraid to take the Server?
  • ….and why hasn’t the Podesta brother been charged and arrested, like others, after being forced to close down his very large and successful firm? Is it because he is a VERY well connected Democrat working in the Swamp of Washington, D.C.?
  • The Witch Hunt finds no Collusion with Russia – so now they’re looking at the rest of the World. Oh’ great!
  • I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!

Ok, let me catch my breath.  Where to begin?  First, let’s just concede that this was the most awesome tweetstorm in the history of tweetstorms.  In 9 tweets, containing a total of about 300 total words, the President of the United states pretty much summed up his own frustrations as well as the frustrations of about half of the country with regards to the obvious, blatant dual system of law enforcement – or lack thereof – that has been practiced within the FBI and DOJ for the past three years.

It is a dual standard, it is a witch hunt, it is a situation in which our ostensible law enforcement agencies are allowing obvious, blatant criminals to walk free on the streets and receive awards from universities like Harvard.  These are people who have betrayed our country, abused its institutions for massive personal monetary rewards, shared its highest secrets with the entire globe and who did their very best to outright steal a presidential election.

We also have a situation in which the conspirators within the FBI, DOJ and CIA who conspired to rig an election and then take down a president now fully admit that they did spy on the opposition party’s presidential campaign, and then repeatedly, bald-facedly lied about it all under oath to various congressional committees and, with the help of their media allies, to the public at large.

So, the President who was the target of the conspiracy is upset about it all?  Go figure.

The very sweaty Rod Rosenstein, whose ill-considered appointment of his pal Robert Mueller as Special Counsel marks one of the low points in all of this, responded to the President’s final tweet within a few hours by announcing he was instructing DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to expand his investigation to include “whether the FBI held a political motive in the counterintelligence investigation,” i.e., their spying on the Trump Campaign.

Consider the specific wording of that sentence.  Why is it worded that way?  Because Horowitz has already been investigating the FBI spying operation for months.  Back on March 28, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions expanded the scope of the IG’s investigation, the authorization letter included this language: “As part of this examination, the OIG will also review information that was known to the DOJ and the FBI at the time the [FISA warrant] applications were filed from or about an alleged FBI confidential source.  Additionally, the IG will review the DOJ’s and the FBI’s relationship and communications with the alleged source as they relate to the FISC applications.”

Here’s what’s probably going to happen today, judging from the President’s tweets, which by the way were obviously drafted with help from his lawyers and probably Chief of Staff John Kelly:

  • Rosenstein’s reaction to add it all to the IG’s plate is a good start, but probably not enough.  The President may well ask for a second special counsel to be appointed, or perhaps demand that Sessions appoint a U.S. attorney to perform a criminal investigation of some of the obvious criminal activity that Mueller refuses to address;
  • The President may well also announce he is using his constitutional authority to declassify certain documents – such as the letters Rosenstein used to appoint Mueller and expand the scope of his investigation – that Rosenstein and the FBI have refused to provide to Congress;
  • If Mr. Trump takes such action, Rosenstein will in all likelihood offer his resignation, which the President would no doubt accept.

Then there’s Jeff Sessions, our seemingly too-often-absent Attorney General.  There are two common schools of thought about Mr. Sessions:

  • He’s just another deep state operative and will never do anything to bring the real criminals in all of this to justice; or
  • He’s been carefully biding his time, awaiting the issuance of the IG reports and doing everything by the book before springing his carefully-constructed trap on the nation’s enemies.  He’s had Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber investigating all of this in coordination with Horowitz, and indictments and trials will follow shortly after the IG’s work is complete and relevant criminal referrals have been made.

I want to believe the latter scenario about Sessions is the case, because if it isn’t, then all is lost and none of this matters.  If the latter is the case, then things are about to come to a head very, very quickly.  If the first scenario is true about Sessions, then we may see him either resign or be fired outright this week as well.  Because the President has had enough of this crap, and really, who can blame him?

Boom.

Just another day in some of you laughed last Friday when I told you things were about to move very, very quickly America.

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.
