Wait, Comey, Clapper and Brennan Still Have Security Clearances?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, “judgment free” this, buddy. – A man was arrested at a Planet Fitness on Monday when other customers complained that he was working out in the nude, seldom a good idea at a public facility.  When the cops came to run him off to the local pokey, he told them that he thought he was in a “judgment free” zone.  So, obviously a Democrat.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

You’re really not very good at this whole Twitter thing, Jim. – Ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey issued the following tweet on Monday:

For the record, this goofy tweet comes less than two days after President Trump, in a nationally-televised interview, criticized Putin about all sorts of things and said if Putin continues meddling in U.S. elections he would become the Russian President’s “worst enemy.”  That interview came just days after several other nationally televised interviews in which President Trump repeatedly criticized Putin.  Those interviews come weeks and months after President Trump implemented a long series of the toughest sanctions the U.S. has targeted against Russia in decades, far tougher than anything Barack Obama ever dreamed of doing.

Mr. Comey should really take a different direction with his shameless attention-seeking exercises.  This whole Twitter thing is obviously not among his core competencies.

Speaking of ex-Obama officials shamelessly seeking attention for profit, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders informed the collection of creeps and derelicts we call the White House press corps that President Trump is, at the urging of Senator Rand Paul, looking into the revocation of the security clearances for Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden, Susan Rice and Andrew McCabe.  Sanders cited concerns that these sleazeballs were monetizing their security access and improperly sharing classified information with the media, which is undeniably true of all of them.

One reporter told his Twitter followers that there was an audible gasp from the fake reporters in the briefing room when Sanders made her announcement.  Yes, one can only imagine the level of panic that immediately began to set in among this group of lazy, shiftless gas bags who have spent the last two years just cutting and pasting whatever this collection of Obama loyalist seditionists have fed them into their rote articles.  Now suddenly, they face the prospect of having to actually engage in real journalistic pursuits for their information, rather than just being sock puppets.  Life is hard, folks.

Some of the reactions were truly priceless.   James Clapper told an interviewer on CNN, where he monetizes his security clearance 7 days a week, that “I don’t know what to say,” he added. “I think this is just a very, very petty — a petty thing to do. And that’s about all I’ll say about it.”  Yes, petty, sort of like if he went on MSNBC or CNN and trashed your reputation on live television 5 times a week, huh?

Jennifer Rubin, a pathetic hack who serves as one of the Washington Post’s kennel of fake “conservative” writers, said this in a tweet:

So, this nitwit is so unalterably vacuous that she actually believes that there is some sort of constitutional right for a person to maintain a national security clearance.  Ok, where do I go to get mine?  Holy cow.

Interestingly, Brennan, who has been so hyper-vocal and outrageously over-the-top in his criticisms of President Trump – even to the point of accusing him of committing treason in his meeting with Vladimir Putin last week – has so far remained silent on the matter.  In fact, that July 16 tweet accusing a sitting U.S. President of treasonous acts is the last tweet this particular seditionist has issued.  Since then, it’s been radio silence on the Brennan Twitter account.  We also haven’t seen him raise his ugly mug on television since that outburst.  Maybe someone convinced him to get back on his meds.

Back to the question at hand, what possible legitimate purpose does it serve for any of these people to still have security clearances to begin with? It’s unimaginable that this step has not already been taken, given the unending efforts by this pack of disloyal seditionists to bring down the Trump presidency.

Some buffoon talking heads are arguing that it’s important for high-ranking ex-intelligence officials to retain their security clearances in case the current administration needs their advice.  Wait, what?  Are we really to think that President Trump is going to call Brennan or Comey up in the midst of some international crisis and ask for their advice?  Clapper?  The insipid Susan Rice?   These people have literally nothing useful to offer this administration.

The only advice Susan Rice could offer anyone is how to bald-face lie about an international incident on five news shows on the same Sunday morning.  Please.  Plus, Clapper, Comey and Brennan have all blatantly perjured themselves in congressional testimony in their ongoing efforts to harm the current administration – that’s just a matter of clear public record at this point.

There’s an old lawyer joke that goes something like this:

What do you call 20 lawyers with cement blocks chained to their ankles at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean?

Answer:  A good start.

Same answer here.  Do it, Mr. President.  Just do it.  And please, add Peter Strzok to the list.

Just another day in how does John Brennan still have a security clearance America.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Holds all the Keys to the Mid-term Elections

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Note to America:  Dianne Feinstein is no longer far left enough for California Democrats.  – Yes, let that one sink in for a minute before you continue on.

Senator Feinstein, who has held her senate seat since 1992 and was the very liberal mayor of San Francisco from 1978 through 1988, was basically given a vote of no confidence by the executive board of her own political party in her home state on Saturday, as party delegates voted overwhelmingly to support her Democrat challenger in the November election.  For those unfamiliar with California’s odd voting system, candidates from all parties run in open primaries in June, and the top two vote-getters then face off in the general election.

In the June primary, the far-left Feinstein easily bested her far, far, far, far-left opponent, state assemblyman Kevin de Leon, winning 44 percent of the vote to his 12 percent.  But de Leon won the endorsement vote from the executive board members by a whopping 65 to 7 margin, with 28 percent choosing not to endorse either candidate.  Breathtaking.

I’ve been around a long time and I can’t remember any long-time U.S. senator receiving this kind of overwhelming rebuke from their own political party.  The only good news for Feinstein is that she’ll no doubt get 90+ percent of the vote from Republican and independent voters who will find de Leon even more radical than she is.  So she’ll most likely survive to hold her senate seat into her 90s (she’s 85 now), which is precious little comfort to normal people out here in flyover country.

Speaking of the November mid-term elections, I’ve had several inquiries about where I think things are headed, so now would be a good time for a mid-year update.

Those who followed me throughout the 2016 campaign will know that I believe the overall public mood is a far bigger and more important influence over the balance of power outcome of national elections than are the nitty gritty details that the inside-the-Beltway pundits tend to focus on.  This is a more prominent influence during presidential election years than in mid-terms, but it is still a major factor.

That belief is why I began telling my clients and readers in October 2015 that I believed Donald Trump would win the presidency.  The clear mood of the vast majority of the public in 2016 was for change – real, fundamental change in the direction of the country after our disastrous 8-year experiment with community organizer radicalism, which had corrupted every institution of our government.  Among all of the primary candidates in both parties, Donald Trump, by October 2015, was the only truly viable candidate offering real change.

So, even while micro-analysts like Nate Silver were giving Hillary a 97 percent chance of winning and most of the polls showed her holding big leads in the months leading up to Election Day, I held to the belief that the overall mood in favor of real, radical change would end up prevailing and Trump would become the next POTUS.  On the Sunday prior to Election Day, I predicted he’d win 311 electoral votes, overshooting his final total by five.

The overriding public mood this far in advance of Election Day, 2018 is more difficult to read.  Which, frankly, is good news for the GOP, because the absence of a clear public mood mitigates in favor of the status quo.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of the Democrat Party and its fake news media guardians, the public is more divided than at any time since perhaps 1860.  The President’s base of support has only grown more loyal and unshakable over the first 19 months of his presidency, and he now polls better among self-identifying Republicans than any of his predecessors.  But the radical leftist Democrat base of support has only grown more radical over the same period of time, making it very difficult to determine if the majority inertia among the electorate is for change or for preservation of the status quo.

Again, the lack of any clear indication that this will be a real change election also mitigates in favor of the GOP, which holds majorities in both houses of congress, and which is only defending 9 senate seats as opposed to 25 the Democrats must defend.

So, here’s my current thinking on the ultimate outcome:

If the election were held today, the Rs would retain control of the House – barely – and gain a bigger majority in the Senate, with maybe 54 or 55 total seats.  There would be no impeachment action on the horizon, and President Trump would be an overwhelming favorite to be re-elected in 2020.

But the election is four months away, and much can change between now and November. If November comes around and nothing has changed in the current status quo related to all the Obama-era bad actors, the election will go very badly for the Rs.

Right now, the GOP base is pumped up, but it’s only because of President Trump, not due to anything the Republican congress has accomplished.  The tax cuts are great, but they are also old news at this point, and voters in November are going to be asking what have you done for me lately?  Congress’s failure to act on Obamacare last year and the steadfast refusal by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to really make a push for funding the border wall will be big issues this fall in the minds of GOP voters.  Should the Senate somehow fail to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by Election Day, that also will be a huge negative for the Republicans.

There is also great and growing dissatisfaction among the GOP base with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the lack of any real law enforcement action being taken against the myriad bad actors within his Department.  If we get to November and no one has been indicted, Rod Rosenstein still has his job, Robert Mueller is still indicting Russian ham sandwiches at strategic moments, Peter Strzok still has his security clearances, Andrew McCabe and James Comey are still walking around free and unindicted men, and Hillary Clinton still appears to be immune from the laws of the land, then GOP voter enthusiasm will fall through the floor.

If, on the other hand, November comes around and a bunch of indictments have been served on a bunch of these terrible people and maybe Hillary Clinton and John and Tony Podesta to boot, then the GOP will pick up net seats in the elections and possibly finish the increasingly-radicalizing Democrat Party off for a generation.

It is not an overstatement to say that the entire future of our country hinges on the real nature of Jeff Sessions.  Is he just another corrupt Washington, D.C. swamp rat?  Or has he, along with Michael Horowitz, John Huber and others just been biding his time, executing a plan that will result in the beginning of real enforcement actions following the issuance of Horowitz’s report on the abuse of the FISA process several weeks from now?

Good questions.  The time for finding out is growing short.

Just another day in Jeff Sessions is holding all the keys America.

That is all.

This IG Report is Devastating for the FBI; The Next One Will be Even Worse

Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I expected to be moderately disappointed today, but instead am feeling pleasantly surprised.  This IG Report is actually quite devastating for the FBI, which is exactly what it should be.  Michael Horowitz has done his job admirably.

First, a little house-cleaning…

  • Most, if not all of the mainstream, fake media organizations are rushing to get their clickbait “BREAKING” reports out based on reading the report’s Executive Summary only.  That summary is written in a way to intentionally soften the media reaction to the report, and feed the fake media’s confirmation bias that this thing is no big deal.  So the reporting we’re seeing from those outlets so far is very predictable. Great work, DOJ!
  • It seems, at least on the surface, that Comey’s going to be given a pass on his role in all of this.  Based on what I’ve read so far, I don’t expect a criminal referral related to him, despite all the “insubordinate” behavior he engaged in on Hillary’s behalf.
  • There are no criminal referrals in this report – there were never going to be.  Those come later, if there are going to be any.  Remember the Andrew McCabe report a couple of months back?  That one had no criminal referrals in it, either.  Horowitz issued a referral to Sessions on McCabe later on the same day the report was released, but that was very fast for a reason – they were working to get McCabe out of the FBI by the next Monday, and the report was released on a Friday.
  • There are, however, internal disciplinary referrals on 5 FBI employees contained in the report, including on Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.  Strzok specifically has been referred to the internal Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) for further internal investigation.
  • There also may never be any criminal referrals at all related to this specific report.  As I pointed out this morning, we have to remember that, despite the huge size of this 500 page report, its scope is very limited – only to the conduct of its fake investigation into the Clinton email scandal.  We have to remember that fake investigation did not involve criminal activity like defrauding the FISA courts or illegal unmaskings or faking 302 reports.  Those were related to operation Crossfire Hurricane and other DOJ/FBI shenanigans that are the subject of Horowitz’s pending, final report.
  • So the focus of the report is on the internal process followed, and violations of FBI protocols, because that’s what this particular investigation was focused on.

There.  Clear as mud?

Now, what this report does a great job of is setting the stage for the next report, which will be the climax of Horowitz’s work.  It’s like Act I  of a three act play.

Here is the scene it sets:

  • The FBI in 2016 was a place in which Horowitz documents “numerous FBI employees, at all levels of the organization” – including some senior ones – accepting bribes against agency policy from multiple news media outlets.  Meals, golf outings, sports tickets, you name it, these people were getting it from their favored leak recipients.
  • The FBI in 2016 was a place that leaked like a sieve to those very same media outlets.
  • The FBI in 2016 was a place run by long-time associates and fans of Hillary Clinton.  Comey has known her for 20 years, Page and Strzok worshipped her, Andy McCabe’s wife was taking gobs of money from her former bagman, Terry McAuliffe while McCabe himself was helping fix the agency’s fake investigation into her email “problem.”
  • The FBI in 2016 was a place at which the outcome of an “investigation” would be determined months in advance of even interviewing the suspect or her senior staffers, a place where the final report of an investigation was already drafted months prior to said intervews.
  • Even worse, the FBI in 2016 was a place where the senior agent running the fake investigation was aware that many of Clinton’s emails had been intercepted by foreign governments, and did his best to cover up that fact.
  • The FBI in 2016 was a place where a stunning revelation that more than 600,000 of Clinton’s emails, including many containing classified and secret information, were found on the PC of the disgusting pedophile husband of Clinton’s longtime companion, and that revelation would go completely unaddressed in any way for more than a month.
  • The FBI in 2016 was a place in which the Director made decisions vitally important to the well-being of a nation of 315 million people base on his certainty that Hillary Clinton was going to ultimately win the election.
  • The FBI in 2016 was a place in which the Director, his chief counsel and the deputy chief of the counterintelligence division all used their personal GMail accounts to conduct official business and transmit and receive classified information.
  • The FBI in 2016 was a place in which that deputy chief of counterintelligence, which asked by his mistress to assure her that Trump couldn’t win the election, replied “No.  We’ll stop it”.

All of this and no doubt much more is clearly laid out in this Horowitz report.  There will be much more revealed as everyone has a chance to comb through it over the next 24 hours.

This is a picture of an agency – supposedly the nation’s premier law-enforcement agency – that was out of control, overwhelmingly biased and utterly corrupt.  That is a devastating picture.

Horowitz Report Drops Today – Teen Drama Queens Prepping Their Defense

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note:  The wonderful photoshop that accompanies this piece was constructed by a loyal Campaign Update reader who asked to be credited only as  dagalas.]

Hey, y’all, so far this week, President Donald Trump has gotten the Democrats and the fake news media to endorse:

– War games
– Nuclear weapons
– Refusing to negotiate with despots (where were they when Obama did that Iran deal?)
– Neverending war on the Korean peninsula

And it’s only Thursday morning!

PSA: Those loud noises you are hearing right now are just the sounds of liberal heads exploding…. – Two Norwegian lawmakers formally nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize on Wednesday.  The two are of course described as “right-leaning” members of Norway’s “Progress Party, which advocates for limited immigration and shrinking the size of government.”  Gosh, such radical ideas, wanting to preserve your country’s native culture and holding down the size of government.  If we didn’t have biased, stupid media, we would have no media at all in America.

And speaking of biased, stupid, fake news media…

“Ok, the President had a really great summit in Singapore, sadly.  So, here’s what we do:  ABC, you go with the fake report about Michael Cohen turning on Trump.  CBS, you toss out the false report about Sarah Sanders resigning.  CNN, well, you have the porn star franchise, so get on it!” –  Seriously, it’s like clockwork:  Any time President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) has a domestic or international triumph, all the fake news media outlets start pumping out fake news stories designed to distract attention.

If that seems like a coordinated plan to you, that’s because it is a coordinated plan.  This is what your fake news media is in today’s world:  They aren’t “news” organizations, they are propaganda arms of the Democrat Party.  It’s been this way for quite some time now – at least since 1992, but really since shortly following World War II.

It’s become more amplified since November 2016 because the people at the top of these organizations are increasingly desperate.  With every successive act of #Winning, President Trump reveals the DC “Establishment” – mainly Democrats but also a raft of disloyal Republicans – to be a decades-long utter fraud perpetrated on the American people.  Tuesday’s election results, in which a challenger loyal to the President – Katie Arrington – knocked off longtime DC swamp creature Mark Sanford in South Carolina in a very surprising upset, only served to heighten the fake media’s panic.

And guess what?  Today is the day the next report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz drops.  Just imagine the frenzied flood of freakin’ news-fakery we are about to be treated to in the wake of that document going public at 3:00 ET this afternoon.  It will be glorious.

Several readers have asked this week what we should expect from this next Horowitz report.  My only honest answer is, hell if I know.  There are reasons to be concerned about what it might – or more likely, might not – contain, and reasons to be optimistic about it.

First, it is key to remember that the scope of this report is limited:  It only covers the DOJ/FBI conduct of its blatantly fake investigation into the Clinton email scandal, an investigation that we already know was little more than a desperate coverup designed to keep Barack Obama’s favored candidate from going to federal prison.  Horowitz is still working on a more comprehensive, subsequent report whose scope is far broader and will cover all of the DOJ/FBI efforts to fix the 2016 election and spy on the Trump Campaign, transition team and administration.

The main reason to be concerned about today’s report is that Horowitz has no doubt been placed under massive pressure internally at DOJ to mealy-mouth his findings.  We’ve already seen one report that the report will find ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey to have been “insubordinate”, but probably will not find him to have committed any crimes.  If that account – based of course on anonymous sources only – is accurate, then this report is a major fraud given that we already know beyond any shadow of a doubt that Comey has committed multiple perjuries before congressional committees and illegally leaked classified information to the New York Times.

So, right off the bat, we will have that barometer to inform us conclusively on the relative usefulness of this report.

The next big concern is how much of the report will be redacted.  We must remember that bad actors like Rod Rosenstein have had their greasy fingers all over this report for the past three weeks as it has gone through its review process.  Under Rosenstein’s incredibly corrupt leadership, DOJ has become notorious for redacting vast passages of documents under claims to be protecting national security, only to have it revealed later that the redacted information was merely embarrassing to the Department.  If Rosenstein has had his way with this report, we can expect that less than half of it will actually be open for public review.

But there are also reasons for optimism that this report will at least move the ball forward towards cleaning up some of the DOJ corruption and getting the process of perp-walking and prosecuting the key bad actors underway:

  • Horowitz himself has already agreed to testify before the House Oversight Committee next Monday, and that testimony will be offered under oath and threat of prosecution for perjury.  If he has been forced to make inaccurate changes to his report and the Republican members of that committee have the presence of mind to ask the right questions (we know the Democrats will only try to cover things up) then we can expect Horowitz to offer honest answers.  Or we can hope he will, anyway.
  • Horowitz is considered by most everyone to be one of the good guys, for good reason.  Yes, he served during the Obama Administration, but he was constantly engaged in fights with Obama’s corrupt attorneys general, who did everything they could to deny him the right to conduct his oversight responsibilities.
  • Then there’s the fact that, as noted above, this report has been circulating within DOJ for three weeks and also reportedly shared with the congressional “Gang of 8” – which includes notorious hacks like Dianne Feinstein and Adam Schiff – and none of it has been leaked to the press.  You can be damn sure if the original text of this report exonerated James Comey or Andrew McCabe or Peter Strzok or Lisa Page or any of the other bad actors within the FBI and DOJ, that news would have long ago appeared in the New York Times or Washington Post.  The fact that that has not happened gives us cause to hope that Horowitz has done his job.

A word of caution:  Reports like this are never fully satisfying to anyone.  Regardless of how hard Horowitz might have tried, it is literally impossible to fully keep political motivations out of any 500 page report produced in Washington, DC.

It is also very likely that those of us hoping for full justice will be initially mislead by what might seem to be inconclusive findings or mealy-mouthed language in the report, only to find out later that it is in fact extremely damaging to the subject.  It’s key to remember that Horowitz himself is not the prosecutor here:  His job is to simply lay out the facts, though he does have the power to make criminal referrals if he so chooses.

Once the report is out, the job of prosecuting the bad actors falls to the relevant U.S. attorney.  So, while you might initially be disappointed by language that, say, finds “insubordination” or “ignoring of departmental rules” by a James Comey or Andrew McCabe, we may discover later on that a prosecuting attorney finds that to be evidence of criminal conduct.

Bottom line:  I don’t know what’s in this report yet, but we’ll all have a pretty good idea by about 5:00 this afternoon.  Stay tuned.

Just another day on the poop is about to hit the fan 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.

The FBI’s Deep State Cabal Continues to Unravel, One Slimey Thread at a Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, that?  That’s a terrible idea.  But let’s go ahead and do it anyway. – Not one, but two of the dumbest decisions in American history were announced yesterday by completely unrelated businesses, and amazingly, neither of those businesses was named Starbucks.

First, the dimwits who run the Miss America Pageant, which literally began in the 1920s as nothing but a swimsuit competition designed to keep tourists in Atlantic City for a week past Labor Day, announced they would be cancelling the pageant’s… wait for it…swimsuit competition!

Thus ensuring that, in about 5 years, we won’t have the Miss America Pageant to kick around anymore.  Adios!

Second, the people at IHOP – aka, the International House of Pancakes – one of the most iconic breakfast houses in American history, have come up with the genius idea of changing the acronym to “IHOB.”  The catch is that they aren’t telling anybody what the “B” stands for until next Monday, but hey, just guessing here, it might just stand for “Breakfast” since that’s what the chain specializes in.

Thus ensuring that we won’t have IHOP to kick around anymore after Monday, and probably won’t have IHOB to kick around anymore in about 5 years from now.

Who makes decisions like this?  Seriously.

Ok, Bill, tell us something we don’t already know. – The FBI’s Chief of Counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, spent 8 hours testifying behind closed doors to a joint meeting of the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees about his role and the role of others in the FBI’s sham investigation of the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal.

While others involved the fake investigation have either lost their jobs (James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Lisa Page) or been demoted and reassigned since last November (Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr), Priestap has conspicuously remained in his job, where he served as Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok’s direct boss.  This has lead to much speculation that he has long been a cooperating witness for ongoing DOJ investigations being conducted by Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Huber.

The most interesting part about Priestap’s 8 hours on the stand, as far as the public knows, is that none of his testimony has yet been leaked to the New York Times or the Washington Post.  We can be absolutely certain sure that if anything Priestap said was positive for the Democrats or the Fainting Felon it would have already appeared in stories by both of those newspapers.

The only leak as of this writing comes from Catherine Herridge at Fox News, who reported late yesterday that a “source” said Priestap testified that Strzok’s role in the FBI’s shenanigans was even more extensive than we already know, which, given that we already know that he was involved in literally every.  damn.  thing. hardly seems possible.  But there you are.

Priestap’s long-awaited testimony appears to be one step in setting the stage for the release of Horowitz’s also long-awaited report on the fake email investigation and other Coughing Crook-related matters that the FBI chose to cover up during the Obama years.  Interestingly, a second such step took place yesterday afternoon…

Life sure does come at you fast, huh Andy? – Hey, remember when ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe assured everyone that he hadn’t ever done anything wrong late last year?  And remember when he threatened to sue President Trump for slander?  And remember when he threatened to take everybody down with him if he was fired before his pension was fully vested?  And remember when he got fired and wrote that scathing op/ed for the Washington Post claiming he had done nothing wrong and it was all such a huge injustice?  And remember how he did that Gofundme campaign and got a bunch of idiotic suckers to give him half a million dollars for his legal defense fund?  And remember how several Democrat members of congress offered to give him jobs so he could be employed long enough to fully earn his pension?

Yeah…good times…good times.

Late yesterday, this very same Andrew McCabe had his high-paid lawyer send a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley begging for immunity from criminal prosecution in exchange for testimony before the Committee.  Funny how all that bravado and unbridled hubris starts to disappear as the wheels of justice roll inexorably in these folks’ direction.

Just a note about that IG report… – If you’re feeling frustrated at the constant delays in getting this report released, trust me, you have plenty of company.  Including me.

But here’s the way to look at this:  The people who are the subjects of the IG investigation and still working within the FBI and DOJ have now had this report in-hand for almost three weeks.  Sean Hannity was reporting that yesterday as if it is something unusual, but it is in fact standard operating procedure:  Any current employee accused of wrongdoing by the IG is given an opportunity to respond and offer exculpatory evidence before these reports are made public.

But in those three weeks, not a word of this report has been leaked to the fake news media.  Given the number of bad actors within the DOJ and FBI who are subjects of this investigation, you can be sure that if anything in this report was positive for their case, it would have already appeared in the aforementioned house organs for the Deep State.

This report is not going to be everything you want it to be – reports of investigations like this never are.  But it’s obviously not everything the Deep State wants it to be either, because if it was we’d already know about it.

Remember the old proverb:  “The wheels of justice turn slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine.”

Just another day in the unraveling deep state America.

That is all.

Another Trump Troll, Another IG Report Delay to End the Week

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Ok, so here’s the strategy on this latest huge jobs report.  We all do a 10-second report on it as soon as it’s issued and then just drop it like we always d…wait, what?  The President just did what?  He tweeted about it?  You have got to be sh…ok, that’s a huge story – gotta go report on it!” – The President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, got in one final troll of the fake news media before the weekend Friday morning when he issued a tweet prior to the release of this month’s latest fantastic jobs report:

As you can see, the tweet reveals absolutely no information about the report itself, yet it set off a mad scramble among pretty much every fake reporter in the fake news media to see who could be the first to get a report out claiming that the tweet “breached protocol” with some stories even claiming it to be a crime.  Hilarious, and obviously idiotically fake stuff.

This was an obvious troll by the President to force the fake news media, which has in past months barely even mentioned the stunning jobs growth being experienced in the Trump economy, to actually do their jobs.  So, while all the fake reporters and fake editors no doubt believed their fake reports were damaging the President they all hate, the fact is that millions of Americans today learned that the economy added far more jobs in April than anyone expected, and the economy is nearing actual full employment.

Had Trump not issued that tweet, yet another in a long string of fantastic jobs reports would have gone basically ignored by our fake national news media.  The joke’s on you guys, even though you probably still don’t even realize it.

IG Report Delayed, yet again. – Charles Grassley postponed the scheduled June 5 hearing of his Senate Judiciary Committee to review the long-pending DOJ Inspector General’s report on the FBI’s fake investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal.  The hearing is now tentatively scheduled for June 11, meaning Grassley now expects the report to be made public late next week.

These delaying games being endlessly played by DOJ are incredibly tiresome.  No telling what is being done to that report as time goes on and bad actors like Rod Rosenstein have it in their greasy hands.

On a related note, the news fakers at the Washington Post reported late Thursday that ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey was interviewed “recently” by D.C.-based U.S. attorneys leading the prosecution of his ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  McCabe is facing charges for repeatedly lying to DOJ investigators and making unauthorized leaks to the news media, which he claims his boss – the teenage drama queen – knew all about.  Comey denies McCabe’s story, and thus prosecutors will almost certainly be left with trying to sort out which of the two famous – and infamous – liars to believe.

It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

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.

Thanks to Bret Baier, James Comey’s Defense Strategy is now a Matter of Public Record

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The depraved seditionists who make up the team of fake journalists at CNN spent all day Saturday whining about the fact that President Trump refused to attend last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner for the second straight year.  No longer able to attract any A-list talent, the WHCD was hosted by some D-list comic named Michelle Wolf, whose opening monologue proved beyond all doubt the President had made the right decision once again.

CNN laughably billed the dinner as a “celebration of the first amendment,” as if anyone at CNN actually gives a damn about the constitution anymore.  Ms. Wolf took this billing to mean that she was free to fill her routine with any profanity, insult or slander she saw fit to use, even to the point of personally attacking White House representatives Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, who made the mistake of choosing to attend the dinner.

The evening’s festivities only went downhill from there.  Gosh, hard to imagine why the President of the United States of America would choose not to legitimize such nonsense.  In reality, the dinner provided just one more reason to question why the White House continues to allow these people onto the grounds for daily press briefings.  It has been obvious they are a hostile force since the first day of this administration, and represent a security threat to the President and his advisors.

The President of the United States has a duty to keep the people informed of what his administration is doing on a regular basis.  But no president has any obligation to cater to the whims of a group of hostile degenerates, which is what the White House press corps has become.  Last night’s event was a disgrace, not just to the near-dead journalistic profession, but to the entire country.  It should not go unpunished.

Mr. Trump, meanwhile, traveled to Washington Township, Michigan to hold a rally that drew attention away from the attention-starved gaggle of fake journalists.  It was classic Trump, a wide-ranging hour and twenty minute stream of consciousness that touched on pretty much everything going on in Washington, DC today.  The White House Press Association should send him a thank you note for distracting the public’s attention away from the disgusting display its members put on at their annual Hollywood for Ugly People gala.

But back to CNN.  If they haven’t already done so, Jeff Zucker and some of the on-air talent at the fakest fake news outlet on the face of the earth had probably better start lawyering up, since it has now become quite obvious that they have not only tailored their reporting to support the conspiracy to take down this presidency, but some of them have been active participants in it.

Make no mistake about this:  What has gone on within the FBI and DOJ since mid-2016 was initially a concerted effort to rig a national election that then, after failing to do that, morphed into a full-blown attempt at a soft coup d’etat.  As we discussed in yesterday’s Campaign Update, CNN fake host Jake Tapper has been an active participant in the plot since January 2017, when Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper shared the contents of the fake Trump Dossier with him.  Since that time, Tapper has sat silently by without comment as Clapper has lied about the Dossier and who he shared it with time after time after time.  That makes Tapper a willing participant in a conspiracy to bring down a duly-elected president.

If Tapper was aware of this, it idiotic to believe that others at CNN weren’t also aware of the same thing.  As a network, CNN has not only continued to allow Clapper on its air, it actually awarded him a big contract in August 2017 to become a paid talent for the fake news channel.  By that time, it was already public knowledge that Clapper had lied to a congressional committee about all of this, but the fake news network hired him anyway.

As this conspiracy continues to unravel, there is no telling where all these various threads will lead.  But we can bet that some of them will lead deep within bowels of the management at CNN, which is about to make a bunch of lawyers a buttload of money.

Speaking of making lawyers a buttload of money, I went back and listened to James Comey’s interview with Bret Baier again yesterday.  It strikes me that in that interview, it is obvious that he was basically practicing the answers he plans to give on a witness stand in a court proceeding.

For a guy who just wrote a book about all of this, Comey’s memory has suddenly become very fuzzy.  His answers to Baier’s questions are filled with weasel-word qualifiers that good lawyers always tell their clients to use, phrases like “I don’t recall,” “not to my recollection,” “that’s not consistent with my memory,” and on and on.  Comey’s obvious defense strategy will be to blame Andrew McCabe, who was his deputy, and Bill Priestap, the FBI’s head of counterintelligence  – and the guy to whom FBI super-agent-in-his-own-mind Peter Strzok reported – for keeping him in the dark as they and their minions went about their anti-Trump machinations.

Taking that interview with Baier was a serious strategic error on Comey’s part.  Baier, with his tough questioning, forced the teen drama queen onto the record about all manner of things he should not have been talking about, leaving Comey now stuck with a narrative that’s already been aired in public.  Even with all the weasel words, it will very difficult for him to shift that story come trial time.

Those of you who still think Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn’t going to pursue any of this might want to take a close look at Comey’s behavior over the past week, because Comey obviously disagrees with you.  You might also want to think about the fact that, other than Clapper and Obama CIA Director John Brennan, the rest of the Obama high officials implicated thus far – like Ben Rhodes, Sally Yates and Samantha Power – have gone strangely silent in the public space over the last month or two.

It’s a strong bet that some lawyers are making a buttload of money off of them as well.

Just another day in the conspiracy to end the Trump presidency is falling apart America.

That is all.
