Broken Bones in Epstein’s Neck? Totally normal. Nothing to See Here.

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The case just isn’t cooperating with the whole “suicide” narrative. – The Washington Post reported last night that the autopsy of human trafficking pedophile Jeffrey Epstein found “multiple broken bones” in his neck.

That was revealed in the story’s opening paragraph. The Post of course spends the rest of this 25-paragraph piece doing everything it can to continue to prop up the “suicide” narrative. The dying newspaper’s writers and editors do this by carefully focusing only on the broken hyoid bone, which is a part of a man’s Adam’s Apple. The piece never again even mentions the fact that “multiple” bones were broken, nor does it specify which bones those might be. It’s as if that word, “multiple”, has no meaning and is to be ignored.

The writers and editors focus on the hyoid bone because it has been found to have been broken in a small percentage of actual, real hanging cases. The problem here is that, even if the official narrative is to be believed, Epstein could not have really “hanged” himself in the traditional sense of that word. In an actual hanging, the victim would be found dangling with his feet off the ground from a rope that had been strung through a light fixture or otherwise attached to the ceiling of the cell.

Big problem: Epstein’s cell had no means of doing that. The official narrative claims he hanged himself using a sheet he strung through the rail of the top bunk, which sits barely 5 feet off the floor. The narrative contends he then got on his knees and slowly strangled himself using that sheet around his neck. Now, the Washington Post wants you to believe that he was able to kneel forward with such force that he not only strangled to death, he also broke not only his hyoid bone, as well as  “multiple” other bones in his neck in doing so.

How did he do all of that? How did he maintain that intense pressure on his neck – which would have required an intense physical effort – without the human “will to live” impulse kicking in? Did he somehow bind his own hands to prevent that from happening? If not, how did he maintain that intense effort until he actually expired?

The most unintentionally hilarious part of the Post’s article is the claim that the autopsy report has created  “deepening questions around his death.” The problem our society has is that no one at the Washington Post or 99% of our mainstream news media is asking those questions.

There is no demand emanating from the halls of the Post or the New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any other major “news” organ in America for Attorney General William Barr or FBI Director Christopher Wray or even for whatever moron heads up the Bureau of Prisons to hold a press conference and give our intrepid public watchdogs in the press a full accounting of the progress of the case. They’re all too busy obsessing over Beto O’Rourke’s latest re-boot of his campaign and Bernie Sanders’ interview with Cardi B to be worried about any of that.

The problem, of course, is that our fake news media organs have invested the last three years covering up for the seditious actions of the Obama-era FBI and DOJ, in the process building a narrative that these federal agencies are to always be trusted and can do no wrong. They’ve spent the last three years trying to brainwash the public to take whatever the likes of James Comey and Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein have to say as the gospel truth – even going so far as to hire the disgraced McCabe as a paid contributor at CNN – and as a result, it has become incredibly hard to now just turn on a dime and express some healthy skepticism about the veracity of the official narrative.

In other words, once a news agency has willingly turned itself into a government lapdog, it’s pretty hard to un-train that behavior. Maybe impossible.

And so we get reports like this one from the Washington Post.

That’s where we are in our society today.

That is all.

The FBI Raids Epstein Island, Six Weeks Too Late

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

How is this just now happening???? – Jeffrey Epstein was taken into federal custody way back on June 6, six full weeks ago, and the raging dumpster fire that is Christopher Wray’s FBI just now finally got around to “raiding” the pedophile’s “Pedo Island”. That’s right, it took them six weeks to finally think, hey, maybe we ought to go see if we can, like, find some evidence or something on the island which was, if all the documents and flight logs and depositions and affidavits are to be believed, the epicenter of Epstein’s human slavery pedophilia ring. SIX WEEKS.

The FBI was so late in organizing its “raid” that some enterprising soul even managed to get away with the golden dome that used to sit atop the island’s alleged orgy chapel:

Pedophile Island: The golden dome that formally sat atop Jeffrey Epstein's temple on Little St James is gone in recent photos (domeless temple above)

Here’s what the “chapel” used to look like:

Hidden messages: The temple has been of great interest to members of the QAnon community, who had been talking about the island long before Epstein's arrest

That dome is probably now a trophy on a shelf in a big house somewhere around, oh, say, Chappaqua, New York. Just speculating, of course.

[Ok, the dome was actually blown off the chapel by a storm a couple of years ago, but it makes such a great metaphor.]

Given the FBI’s recent history, today’s visit to Epstein’s island by a dozen or so agents is just as likely to be a clean-up and cover-up operation as it is to be any sort of actual investigation. It is ridiculously naive to take anything this agency does at face value at this point.

The reports of the raid – the story was of course broken not by any U.S.-based news organization, but the the UK-based Daily Mail – came just a few hours after Attorney General William Barr made remarks about the case during a speech in which he promised his Justice Department would continue its investigation into the Epstein case and pursue justice for the victims of his depravity. All of which is great and I wish I had the capacity to actually believe Barr is really sincere. But at this point, after so much wasted time and such a dearth of any results at all, I find it impossible to summon up such faith in anyone associated with the DOJ any longer.

But let’s say this really is a raid in search of evidence. Six long weeks after Epstein was taken into custody, what in the hell would anyone think would still be on that island? Can Wray and his feckless troops really be so dim, so utterly inept and incompetent that they actually think none of Epstein’s customers would have had the presence of mind to hire some professional cleaners to get out there ahead of them by now?

C’mon, man, how naive do you all think we are?

Ok, don’t answer that. Nevermind. I really don’t want to know

*sigh*

That is all.

Don’t Expect Justice For Epstein’s Victims From This Justice Department

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Now that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has committed the most conveniently-timed “suicide” in American history, no one in their right minds should expect our Department of Justice to provide any form of real justice for the many women who suffered at the hands of Epstein and – allegedly – his many very powerful friends and associates.

After all, this “suicide” happened under the not-so-watchful eye of that selfsame DOJ, given that the Bureau of Prisons resides within that organization. And Epstein was not just any random prisoner within that prison system – he was perhaps the most high-profile accused suspect currently residing within its confines. With allegations swirling that a former president – and a sitting one, come to think of it – a former secretary of energy and New Mexico governor, a former president’s wife, a former senate majority leader, and a prince of England were all participants in his pedophilia escapades, no prisoner had attracted more public and media attention than the owner of “Love Island” and the “Lolita Express.”

Making the circumstances surrounding this “suicide” even more suspicious – and the blackeye for the DOJ even blacker – is the fact that Epstein supposedly had tried to commit suicide just last month and had supposedly been placed on a “suicide watch” and locked into solitary confinement since that time. As a result, he supposedly had guards stationed just outside his prison cell around the clock, seven days a week, as well as closed-circuit TV cameras monitoring him.

Yet, despite that extremely high and very public profile and despite all of these safety measures having supposedly been taken to ensure this prisoner remained alive to face trial, the New York Times and the rest of our mainstream news media would have us all take at face value this explanation of events:

“Mr. Epstein hanged himself, the officials said. He was found at roughly 6:30 a.m. Saturday at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the federal Bureau of Prisons said in a statement.”

Oh, but don’t worry, the Times tell us, because help is on the way:

“The Federal Bureau of Investigation will examine Mr. Epstein’s death, the Bureau of Prisons said.”

Yes, friends, the folks at the raging dumpster fire that is Christopher Wray’s F.B.I. will now “investigate” the circumstances of the “suicide” of the Bureau of Prisons’ most high-profile prisoner. We can rest assured that that inquiry will be carried out with every bit of the diligence and due process we saw during the F.B.I.’s conduct of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server. Hey, maybe we can go ahead and give Peter Strzok his old job back so he can lead this “investigation,” too!

*sigh*

Here’s what is really likely to happen:

Soon, probably before August is out, some U.S. Attorney at the Southern District of New York – hey, maybe James Comey’s daughter? – will stand before the cameras and announce that it is just soooo darn impossible to continue in this investigation now that the alleged perp happens to be dead. Never you mind that the existence and willing testimony of all these victims is still available; never mind that Epstein’s alleged facilitator, Ghislaine Maxwell remains among the living, at least for now; why, the DOJ’s vaunted and massively-staffed SDNY just doesn’t have the capacity for pursuing such a complex and difficult case any longer.

Next, a few weeks later, someone at the F.B.I. will quietly issue a written statement that says, “yep, he committed suicide all right, and no one at the prison or anyone else in authority did anything wrong at all. That’s right. You betcha.”

Then, if these developments result in any ongoing uproar from the public or the media, Attorney General Barr will order his plodding Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, to perform an internal investigation into the Bureau of Prisons’ handling of Epstein. Given that Horowitz appears to take more than 18 months to go to the restroom, this will ensure that we will hear nothing more about the matter until safely after the 2020 elections have come and gone.

No doubt most of you are hoping that this DOJ will somehow still deliver justice to these poor women. Well, as my dear ol’ Dad used to tell me, “you can hope in one hand and spit in the other and see which one fills up faster.”

The smart money is on the spit.

That is all.

Update: Barr plays the plodding IG card much sooner than expected:

The smart money remains on the spit.

In Hannity Interview, Giuliani Tosses Christopher Wray Under the Bus

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Bruce Ohr 302 reports were finally released last night – though in still-heavily-redacted form – and they show a lot of wrongdoing by the former high muckety-muck at the DOJ. The near-unbearable Sean Hannity managed to conduct an interesting interview with Rudy Giuliani on this topic last night, during which Hannity managed to keep his gaping yaw shut long enough for the former counsel to President Donald Trump to say some interesting things about the wrongdoing not just of Ohr, but his wife Nellie, ex-FBI Director and current National Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, as well as the ongoing investigation being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham. He also essentially accuses current FBI Director and by extension former Attorney General Jeff Sessions of basically covering up for the corrupt Obama officials.

Here is a clip of that interview, followed by a transcript:

[Note: I’ve heavily edited portions of the interview during which Hannity felt compelled to constantly interrupt Guliani’s thoughts and remarks. But I’ve done my best to capture Guliani’s comments in full. All of the emphasis added is mine.]
Transcript:

Hannity: Bruce Ohr’s FBI transcripts are out, and they show an amazing amount of contact with Christopher Steele.

Rudy: Sean, we’ve known this for a year, right? I began investigating this a year ago when I took on his [President Trump’s] defense. You can’t believe what’s gonna come out. And this is a dramatic revelation now, but Bruce Ohr should’ve been prosecuted – and his wife, a conflict of interest – 10 months ago. But because we had a justice department that was completely warped [that hasn’t happened].

The fact is these are crimes that are shocking. These are crimes that go to the very heart of our republic. These people had a plan to stop the Republican candidate from getting elected, and then they executed a plan to remove him from office on false evidence, false testimony.

The whole thing was made up from the very beginning and they sold it to 90% of our media. It’s a tragedy.

Andrew Weisman knew it was false from the very beginning, and then he trampled over 3 or 4 people’s rights. The press didn’t care because they were going after Donald Trump. So you can just destroy people if you’re going after Donald Trump whether it’s fair or not.

This is a terrible crime. The dimensions of it you still don’t realize. There’s plenty of evidence of what happened in Ukraine, plenty of evidence of what happened in U.K., and Italy. This was a massive conspiracy to try to deprive the American people of who they had elected as President. That should never happen.

Hannity: The 302’s indicate that Ohr had lots of contacts with various people at the State Department, that they all knew that this guy was desperate to get the dirt out on Trump. And that all continued even after it was proven that he was a leaker and a liar. How high up did it go, Mr. Mayor?

Rudy: How about Jim Comey? Comey put his signature on an affidavit swearing that Steele’s information was verified. I don’t wanna presume him guilty, but at least someone should question whether he shouldn’t go to jail.

Hannity: It looks like John Durham is spending an awful lot of time in Europe.

Rudy: I know why he’s spending a lot of time in Europe. He’s spent a lot of time investigating Ukraine, Italy, U.K. and Australia (the four countries whose operatives are implicated in the Spygate scandal).

(Hannity, who can’t keep his damn mouth shut for 2 seconds, interrupts another thought Rudy was about to convey.) Did our top intel officials outsource spying on American citizens for the purpose of hurting President Donald Trump/candidate Trump?

Rudy: There is plenty of evidence that happened. Plenty of evidence, some of it documentary, some of it already recorded, and for a year, people in Europe have been trying to get this to our FBI and they have been thwarted, ignored and pushed aside.

There was a deliberate effort to cover this up. It didn’t just happen. Even during the Trump Administration there was a deliberate effort to cover this up, to protect the prior wrong-doers. That’s just really sick. There’s something really wrong with that.

And we’ve gotta get to the bottom of it because we have to get this cancer out of our justice system and out of our intelligence apparatus. These are very important things to us, to be able to do intelligence honestly, and these people have disgraced thousands of really good people who do this every day for us. It’s a shame.

That is all.

Bombshell: Dan Coats Out, John Ratcliffe In At ODNI

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is a big, big deal:

Congressman Ratcliffe can now expect to be demonized by the Democrats and their toadies in the fake news media because, well, that’s what they do. But Ratcliffe, a former U.S. attorney who is in his third term in congress, is well-qualified for the job and any of the 53 Senate Republicans who oppose his nomination will do so at their own political risk.

The departure of Coats, a long-time establishment Republican DC Swamp rat, has long been considered to be crucial to the process of declassification of key documents necessary to get at the truth of what really took place within the Obama DOJ/FBI/CIA/State Department during the runup to the 2016 elections. Coats has long been an impediment to that process, and you can tell the character of a man by looking at who his friends are.

For example, here is what ex-FBI Director and current National Teenage Drama Queen James Comey had to say upon learning of Coats’s “resignation”:

Then there is Democrat Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, who got caught in the fall of 2017 soliciting damaging information from Russians in a recorded phone call, and has spent the last two years doing his best to cover up for Comey, John Brennan, et al:

There will no doubt be much more high praise for Coats from the four murky corners of the DC Swamp today, but you get the picture.

Here is why getting Coats out of his position is so key to declassification: the Office of the Director of National Intelligence has the final say on what documents will and will not be declassified and released for public viewing. Signoff from the DNI is the last step in the process, and the presence of Dan Coats in that job is one of the main reasons why the process has been held up thus far.

The function of the ODNI is to coordinate efforts between the nation’s alphabet soup of intelligence and law enforcement agencies. The directors of all of those various agencies all have the opportunity to object to the declassification of any document that is somehow relevant to their operations. Any director who does so must justify their objection to the DNI. If the DNI agrees with the justification, it then becomes his job to communicate the decision to the President.

Rumors have long circulated that Coats has essentially served as a rubber stamp for the worthless FBI Director Christopher Wray and any other agency director who has wanted to hold up the process.

Thus, the firing of Coats – and make no mistake about it, this was a firing – was essential to the ultimate success of getting the truth out to the public. Wray still remains, but he can now be neutered by an effective and honest DNI.

So, you should expect an absolute war over the nomination of Ratcliffe, because the Democrats and their media toadies are unalterably opposed to the public getting the truth about the Obama-era illegalities. Sadly, you will no doubt see some Senate Republicans take a similar stance. If the Swamp can get to four of them, Ratcliffe’s nomination could be torpedoed.

The good news is that Ratcliffe and the President must have been assured by Mitch McConnell that the votes to confirm him are there; Otherwise, he would not have accepted the nomination.

Let’s hope so. The success of this nomination is vital to the entire process.

That is all.

The Times and Post go Right Back to Faking the Russia Collusion News

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, it’s like 2017 all over again. – With readership no doubt drastically declining in the wake of the issuance of a Mueller report that clears President Donald Trump, the news-fakers at the Washington Post and the New York Times decided last night to go back to their tried and true tactic of publishing fake reports based on unidentified and possibly even non-existent “sources.”

The Times started the night’s fake-fest with a front page story headlined “Some on Mueller’s Team Say Report Was More Damaging Than Barr Revealed”.

Wow! “Some”, huh?  Good ol’ “Some”? You mean the same “Some” on Mueller’s team who have been the fake “source” for all of the fake news stories the Times has published related to the Russia Collusion fantasy over the last two and a half years?  That “Some”?

Oh, but it gets better. Here’s how the lead paragraph in the story informs the reader who this “Some” really is:

“Some of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigators have told associates that Attorney General William P. Barr failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated, according to government officials and others familiar with their simmering frustrations.”

Ah, according to “government officials” – Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler, perhaps? – and “others familiar with their simmering frustrations”, is it? Who might those “others” be? Staffers for Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler, maybe? Note that we now have anonymous sources quoting even deeper anonymous sources. Maybe we should call them “double secret” anonymous sources.  Holy crap.

Or maybe these “sources” really don’t exist at all – there is literally no way for the reader to know. Why, you just have to trust the honesty and professionalism of the news-fakers who wrote and approved this story, even though they are the very same writers and editors who have published so many other blatantly false, easily-debunked fake news stories throughout the Trump Administration.

My goodness.

Not to be outdone, the news-fakers at the Washington Post belched out an equally ambiguously-sourced story of their own that I’m not even going to go into in any detail because it is a waste of my time and yours. Suffice it to say that it’s the same basic plot as the Times story with the same failure to identify anyone who served as the reporters’ actual source for the fairy tale.

Back to the Times story for a second: Rush Limbaugh landed on one of the most outrageous pieces of it during his first hour today that deserves repeating here: “It was also unclear how widespread the vexation is among the special counsel team, which included 19 lawyers, about 40 F.B.I. agents and other personnel.”

Think about that for a second:  FORTY FBI agents were tasked to the Mueller fake investigation, an effort Mueller and Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray knew was fake from day one. FORTY FBI agents who could have been tasked to preventing terrorist attacks; FORTY FBI agents who could have been tasked with identifying potential school shooters before they killed a bunch of kids; FORTY FBI agents would could have been investigating something real, like the mob racket known as the Clinton Foundation. FORTY FBI agents who could have been working on putting deep state creeps like Peter Strzok and John Brennan and James Clapper and Jim Comey in prison.

Instead, they were all working on helping Mueller and his team of Clinton/Obama hacks dummy up a case for impeachment of the sitting, duly-elected President of the United States.

I focus on this because it was just a week ago that I wrote a piece here titled “The Misplaced Priorities of the FBI and DOJ Protect the Deep State Seditionists,” and here we have the New York Times delivering demonstrable proof of exactly how that works.

Thanks for proving my point, you news-faking hacks.

That is all.

President Trump Drops the Mother of all Leverage Bombs as the Week Ends

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Event #1 – The newsfakers at the New York Times suddenly decided they needed to change the overriding narrative heading into the weekend, issuing an obvious bit of #fakenews claiming – according to anonymous sources, of course – that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein wanted to wear a wire to his meetings in mid-2017 with President Donald Trump, and also told Robert Mueller that he could recruit cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment as a way to remove Trump from office.  Rosenstein blasted back with an outright, unqualified denial of both claims within a few minutes of the piece’s publication, the lack of weasel words indicating that the slimy Deputy AG is actually telling the truth for once.

What does this tell us?  It tells us that the Democrats are very nervous going into this weekend with where the antics of Dianne Feinstein and Christine Ford and her army of expensive leftwing activist lawyers have led them.  Because we know for sure that the fake news media never voluntarily changes the overriding narrative if the Democrats are happy with the current one.  That just doesn’t happen.

So, why did it happen today?  My theory is that the release of a very inconvenient poll by the extreme leftwing Huffington Post this morning created a bit of a panic among Democrats, who no doubt believed they were winning this week to that point.  That poll shows that just 26% of those surveyed believe that Ms. Ford is “credible.”

Coming as it does after a full week of the most disgusting full court press of character assassination seen in a quarter of a century, and a full year of the #MeToo movement brainwashing the public that you simply must believe the woman out of hand in this sort of situation, that result has got to be an extreme shock to the Democrat system.

Event #2 – Then there were these two tweets this morning from the account of President Trump:

…and…

Dim-witted reporters all over the fake news media portrayed this as the President backing down in the face of still more stonewalling by Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray.  But I’ve been studying these tweets all day, and they look to me like a pretty impressive display of negotiating and leverage deployment on the part of Mr. Trump.

Let’s take them sentence-by-sentence because every sentence contains a directed message:

First sentence:  “I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents.”  Note the emphasis on “UNREDACTED”.  Remember, the President has these documents in-hand, has known for many months exactly what these documents contain, and more importantly who they will embarrass and likely incriminate, including Rosenstein himself in all likelihood.  His threat to have them issued in unredacted form is a threat to the freedom of the Deputy AG and many others, like Comey, Strzok, Page and Brennan.

In this relationship, just as in his relationship on tariffs with Mexico, Canada, the EU and China, Trump holds all the leverage.  That sentence reminds all these skunks and snakes that he has absolute authority to release the documents in unredacted form at any time he sees fit.

Next sentence:  “They agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe.”  Who do you think that sentence is directed towards?  Bob Mueller, you think?  Yes.  These deep state scumbags have held Mueller over Trump’s head as a threat for more than a year now, and Trump uses the word “perceived” to let everyone know he does not agree with that assessment and will not hesitate to move forward on his own if need be.  He also reminds Mueller that these documents will no doubt be damaging to him personally  as well as his investigation, and that it is time to move quickly to wrap things up.

Next sentence:  “Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release.”  That would be London and Australia calling, since they know the full truth about their involvement in the 2016 spying on the Trump campaign will be extremely embarrassing.  So, Trump is reminding them of the leverage he holds on them as well, which could come in handy in some future negotiation.

Next 2 sentences:  “Therefore, the Inspector General………has been asked to review these documents on an expedited basis.” …and… “I believe he will move quickly on this (and hopefully other things which he is looking at).”  So, you agree to tuck it safely over with Michael Horowitz and pressure him to hurry up not only on getting the declass review done, but also on his final report on the whole FISA Abuse scandal, which should be close to finalized in any event.  Again, a classic application of leverage.

Next sentence:  “In the end I can always declassify if it proves necessary.”  Another unambiguous reminder that he has absolute authority to move forward, that he has the unredacted documents in his possession, and that he won’t hesitate to move ahead if the stonewalling continues.

Final sentence:  “Speed is very important to me – and everyone!”  It’s important to the President because he wants these documents out quickly.  It’s important to everyone else involved because he held back from declassifying a bunch of other documents – like the Rosenstein memos to Mueller authorizing and expanding the Special Counsel investigation and the FBI 302 forms from the January 2017 interview of General Mike Flynn – that might be even more damaging and incriminating to these bad actors, and which he could move forward on if the stonewalling continues.

This wasn’t President Trump backing off – it was President Trump reminding everyone exactly who has all the leverage in this situation.

That is all.

The Democrats’ New Rules Aren’t Really Helping Them

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s all Donald Trump’s fault!  He caused this!  Oh, wait… – When some nut job killed five people working at an Annapolis, MD newspaper on Thursday, many of the fake journalists who infest Twitter immediately knee-jerked to the conclusion that the tragic event was all the fault of President Donald Trump.  Then it turned out that this guy had had a running feud with the paper since 2011.  None of the fake journalists then backed up and blamed Barack Obama.  Go figure.

But wait, these are the rules you asked for, Congresswoman.  What’s the problem? – Mad Maxine Waters told the fake news media yesterday that she’s decided to cancel fundraising events in Alabama and Texas due to “serious” threats she’s received in the mail this week.  The Braying Buffoon is, of course, fresh off of a Saturday event at which she incited violence against members and supporters of the Trump Administration, and then several subsequent appearances at which she refused to pull her remarks back and simply reinforced them.

So, sadly, these are the new rules she’s said she wanted, and now she’s complaining about having to live under them.  Her fellow Democrats would do her a favor by joining with Republicans to force her out of the congress entirely and send her back to California to live in that multi-million dollar mansion she’s somehow been able to afford on a government salary.  That would get her out of the limelight and most likely put an end to any threats.  But doing that would require personal integrity on the part of those Democrats, so we know that’ll never happen.

Speaking of the new rules, more than 600 women staged a sit-in in the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington DC on Thursday in support of the Democrat/Media-fabricated “don’t separate the families!” issue on the border.  The Capitol Police stated that 575 of the women (don’t any of these people have jobs?) were arrested and carted off to local jails, where they will be arraigned and released and probably pay a minor fine.  Because that’s all we do to people who disrupt the nation’s business these days.

This weekend, there are several hundred such protests planned to take place in cities all over the country.  ABC Radio reported this morning that “organizers” expected more than 100,000 people to participate.

Let’s think for a moment about that that word “organizers” that ABC so casually tossed out to its listeners without any effort to identify who they might be.  Who are these “organizers?”  Who do they work for?  Who’s paying them?

ABC and their fellow fake news outlets want us all to just think that these are just a bunch of sweet little ladies and short, skinny guys with mustaches who “organize” such events out of the goodness of their little hearts.  They want you to think that these events are somehow organic, that they just happen due to the pressing demand from people who can’t wait to get out onto the street on hot summer days and carry signs with stupid slogans on them while chanting slogans that are even more stupid.

The truth is that these “organizers” are professional agitators in the same mold as Barack Hussein Obama, who did this stuff for a living before some domestic terrorists and radical preachers decided he should go into politics.  Indeed, the 28 year-old gal who got elected to congress in New York on Tuesday is nothing more than a professional “community organizer.”  These people are both the past and the future of your Democrat Party, folks.

What you’re going to see on Saturday is a bunch of events organized by these Obama clones, in which most of the participants are not local citizens but paid protesters bused into these cities in buses paid for by George Soros and big foundations with names like Park and Heinz and Rockefeller.   There’s nothing organic about them and they really have very little local support.

Saturday, then, is actually the kickoff of the Democrat Party’s campaign for the general election.  These events will probably be fairly tame, but you can expect them to become increasingly shrill and violent as Election Day approaches and it becomes increasingly obvious the Democrats are going to suffer an other loss at the polls.  Because this is all the Democrat Party is anymore.  If you vote for them, you are voting for the destruction of the American Union.

Speaking of people trying to destroy our Union, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray testified up on Capitol Hill before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, and boy, was it a spectacle.

Not that anything new really happened:  Wray was his normal dissembling, ineffectual self and Rosenstein was his normal hostile, transparently lying self.  This is who these guys are, and what they do.

Trey Gowdy got in his five minutes of hyperbolic grandstanding, after which he will go and accomplish nothing of substance, because that is who he is and what he does, too.  It’s always inspiring to listen to him chastise these people as only he can do, but then reality inevitably sets in and you realize that that’s really all there is.

Jim Jordan got the best rise out of Rosenstein and that was fun, but at the end of the day, Rosenstein is just going to go on withholding key documents from the various congressional oversight committees, and Wray is just going to continue being a feckless leader who is doing pretty much nothing at all to reform the disgracefully corrupted FBI.

I would talk about the Democrats on the committee, half of whom are illiterate half-wits, but really, that’s all that ought to be said about them.

So, another all-day hearing during which nothing of substance was accomplished.  After the hearing, the full House of Representatives did vote along party lines to approve a resolution that DOJ produce the documents by next Thursday.  But the “resolution” is non-binding and fails to spell out any potential penalties for Rosenstein failing to comply, which will certainly be the case.

The reality here, of course, is that the House is not going to really do anything until and unless Speaker Paul Ryan is replaced by someone who possesses a set of gonads.  Because Ryan is the obvious block to any effective action, and as long as he’s the Speaker, the current stalemate will continue.

Just another day in nothing real happening here, folks, move along America.

That is all.

You Want a New FBI Director? How About Michael Horowitz?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yes, because remember how much she did for Haiti.  Wait, what?  – In keeping with her life-long belief that there’s a sucker born every minute, the Pantsuit Princess has decided to use the media-generated fake border crisis as a fundraiser.  Yes, even though she isn’t technically running for anything right now, the Grasping Grifter, even at her advanced age, just cannot let a good fake crisis go to waste.

So she sent out a fundraising email yesterday to all of her millions of dimwit supporters, urging them to send her money to her new political organization, Onward Together, so these morons can think they are “doing something” by purchasing the Fainting Felon a new Lamborghini or whatever she plans to do with this latest batch of ill-gotten gain.  Because, hey, there really is a sucker born every minute, and they all voted for the Coughing Crook in 2016.

Here’s what the fake border crisis is really all about. – It’s not about soulless leftist ghouls who support Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts suddenly caring about children, it’s not about the Trump Administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy, it’s not about wanting to keep families together or any of the nonsense First Lady Laura Bush included in her disgraceful op/ed in the WaPo yesterday (Japanese internment camps?  Really, Laura?  Who talked you into putting your name to that line of abject BS?).  Those are just the well-coordinated talking points on the matter agreed to by the Democrat Party and their propaganda agents in the national news media.

This is about what immigration fights are always about:  The Democrats want to turn our nation into just another third world country filled with people dependent on the government, and they believe the best way to do that is to flood the southern border with immigrants from third world countries.  This current effort is an attempt to destroy the rules that govern legitimate requests for asylum.  Those rules currently apply only to very specific life-threatening situations:  Democrats want to expand those rules so that they essentially will allow anyone in for any reason, including – you guessed it – poverty.

Think about it:  almost all of the people currently being held in these migrant centers are from central America.  They traveled well over 1,000 miles in an arduous journey through Mexico where, if they really needed asylum from a life-threatening situation, they could have sought asylum.

Did any of them do that?  No.  Why?  Because they don’t want asylum in Mexico, they want to live in America, where the government doles out benefits like no one actually has to ulimately pay for them.  Before they left their home countries, most of these “refugees” have in fact been trained by American social justice warriors on exactly what fake story to tell when they reach the U.S. in order to gain entry, an effort that began about half a decade ago during – you guessed it – the Obama Administration.

President Trump says that isn’t going to happen, “Not on my watch,” and more than 500 days into his presidency he has given us no reason not to believe he means it.  But there are a whole bunch of weak-kneed establishment Republicans up on Capitol Hill who will sell you all out in a heartbeat for any legislation that “solves” this issue.  So, you’d best all get on the phone and warn your congressman or woman to think twice.  Trust me, some of them really need the warning.

 

Meanwhile, up on Capitol Hill, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and feckless FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the IG’s report issued last Thursday, which covered the FBI’s fake 2016 investigation into the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal.

As I predicted in yesterday’s Campaign Update, Wray was his typical dissembling self, reciting careful talking points written for him by other people to recite, deflecting, refusing to answer on false grounds and just generally looking like the small and ineffective man he obviously is.  His smallness and ineffectiveness were only amplified by having to sit next to Horowitz, who, even with one hand obviously tied behind his back by Rod Rosenstein, was as forthcoming as he could be and did his best to provide the Committee with as much information as he possibly could.

The session began with Chairman Chuck Grassley tossing out the first bombshell, detailing the fact that he had also invited former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey to testify, and that Comey’s lawyer had sent back a decline letter in which he stated Comey, if forced to testify, would exercise his 5th amendment right against self-incrimination.  This huge news was of course studiously ignored by the fake national news media.

Horowitz stuck with the obviously dictated talking point that he didn’t find “documentary evidence” that the blatant political bias exposed on the part of FBI Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Comey himself influenced the conduct of the fake investigation, but no one was buying it.  And, despite that absurd protestation, Horowitz did manage to sprinkle in details of all manner of obvious bias throughout his answers to the pointed questions coming from some of the committee members, including Lindsey Graham, John Kennedy and Ted Cruz, in addition to Grassley himself.

In addition to those details, Horowitz also laid out two big pieces of new information that were not included in his report:

  • He informed the committee that the Teenage Drama Queen himself is actually the subject of a current, ongoing investigation into his mishandling of classified documents; and
  • He confirmed the existence of a federal grand jury looking into all of this, which is most likely associated with U.S. Attorney John Huber’s ongoing investigation into all of the FBI/DOJ’s 2016 efforts to fix the election.

Many, including me, have long suspected that Huber must have at least one and possibly multiple grand juries convened for months now, but before yesterday, no one at DOJ had confirmed that likelihood.

Horowitz will testify again today, this time before the House Judiciary Committee chaired by Bob Goodlatte.  The membership of that committee includes bulldogs like Jim Jordan, Trey Gowdy, Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis, so expect some real fireworks from today’s session.

Interestingly, our useless FBI Director will not be accompanying Horowitz in today’s testimony.  Which only further raises the question:  Why is this guy in that job?  What good is he to anyone?  He’s nothing but a career bureaucrat, obviously in way over his head, and he has no intention of reforming anything.

Some have speculated that Wray is just a placeholder who will be replaced by a more effective, reform-minded leader when all the dust has settled from these investigations.  Trey Gowdy’s name has often come up as a possible replacement, given his background as a prosecutor before he ran for congress.  Gowdy in fact almost appears to be angling for that eventuality, given his always equivocal public statements regarding the FBI and its “stellar” “rank and file.”

I have a better idea:  How about making Horowitz Director of the FBI when all of the investigations are done?  You want a reformer, how about the guy who knows where all the agency’s bad actors and bodies are buried better than anyone else?  You want someone who knows how to manage?  This guy has been managing a gigantic staff conducting dozens of simultaneous investigations for a decade now.  You want someone who isn’t shy about bucking the system and isn’t squeamish about fighting higher-ups?  Horowitz has been doing that his entire career.

It’ll probably never happen, but after yesterday, it sure seems like a heck of a good idea.  Just throwing it out there.

Just another day in the drama never ends America.

That is all.
