The Evening Wrap: Rosenstein Tosses McCabe Under the Bus, and Other WINNING News

So many items of WINNING news today it’s hard to know where to start.

How about this: The ADP private sector jobs report for May is in, and although it’s a big negative number, it’s still positive news in the context of this whole self-imposed Wuhan Virus recession. The ADP number for May came in at a net jobs loss of 2.76 million, which is obviously a depressing number. But – and it’s a big BUT – the consensus of projections by the so-called experts in this field had predicted a loss of 8.663 million jobs, almost 6 million more than the actual number.

What this means is pretty clear:

– Many workers who had lost jobs over the last 10 weeks and filed initial claims for unemployment quickly found new jobs;

– Businesses are reopening faster than the “experts” have anticipated despite the efforts by an array of Democrat governors to prevent that from happening in states like Michigan, New York, California, Oregon, New Jersey and Nevada;

– The reduction in economic growth has obviously not been as deep and severe as most have estimated.

That’s why we have this next bit of WINNING news: The Dow Jones Industrial Average rocketed up above 26,000 today, just 5 trading days after it topped 25,000 last Wednesday, and just 9 weeks after it bottomed out at 18,591. That is a rise of ~40% in a little over 2 months.

At the same time, the NASDAQ hit 9,681 today, and is now within just 70 points of regaining every bit of the losses it suffered in March. Given that the stock markets tend to reflect where investors believe the economy will be 3 to 6 months from now, that represents a stunning vote of confidence in the U.S. economy.

Obviously, the investor class in our country has just as little faith in the economic “expert” class as you and I do.

Oh, hey, then there’s this: You may be wondering why all the rioting across the country suddenly got dialed back last night. President Trump is saying that it’s because some mayors – like Eric Garcetti in Los Angeles – called in the National Guard, and that likely has a lot of merit. But other depraved Democrats like Bill de Blasio and Lori Lightfoot in Chicago did not do that, yet saw a dramatic decrease in violence and mayhem in their cities, too.

Here’s why I believe that happened: The Democrats – and thus, Antifa and Black Lives Matter – got hold of bad polling data, which meant all the bad out-of-state actors were ordered to go home. Remember, every decision the Democrats make is based on polling data.

The bad data on the riots came to them in the form of a new poll from the very liberal Morning Consult polling group, which finds that Americans favor using the National Guard and the U.S. military to put down these riots by a frankly amazing 58%-30% margin. The move is even favored by Democrat voters by a 48-43 margin.

In another bit of bad polling data (for Democrats), the Rasmussen survey shows that a large plurality of Americans consider Antifa to be a terrorist organization. 49% of respondents answered yes, while just 30% said no.

If you don’t think that data caused a ton of Democrat heads to explode, then you don’t understand how Democrats think and operate.

Uhhhh, who to believe – Rod Rosenstein? Or Andrew McCabe? – It’s a very tough choice, but that is what America faces today following an interesting Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in which the oily, rodent-like former Acting Attorney General offered his sniffing and slurping testimony. In this instance, I would tend to believe Rosenstein, if only for the fact that being slightly more believable than the pathological liar McCabe is such a low damn bar.

As we pointed out yesterday, Rosenstein has much to answer for related to his gross misconduct in office during the active coup d’etat effort which he personally facilitated from May 2017 through March 2019. Sadly, the stilted format of these hearings and uselessness of so many of the GOP senators meant that he only had to answer for a few of those things today.

The main focus of the few Republicans who really went after Rosenstein today – Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz and Chuck Grassley – was why Rosenstein signed off on the 4th fraudulent FISA warrant and appointed Robert Mueller shortly after he had assumed the office of Deputy Attorney General. Rosenstein’s wormy answer basically amounted to, “hey, I was just going on the information provided to me by Andy McCabe and his evil team, which included Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.”

Remember, at a press conference two years ago, Rosenstein went on and on about the fact that “In order to get a FISA warrant, you need an affidavit signed by a career law enforcement officer who swears the information is true… And if it is wrong, that person is going to face consequences.”

Remember that? I do, and today Rosenstein outright admitted his signing off on that FISA warrant based solely on the word of a pathological liar and his demonic staff was, well, wrong. But of course, he then added that, hey, he was just the new guy at DOJ and couldn’t be expected to try to verify any of the BS he was being fed by McCabe and Strzok and Page.

Naturally, McCabe was watching the proceedings at home – or maybe at CNN headquarters, where he remains employed as a richly-paid on-screen liar, er, “contributor” – and he issued a statement defending himself as the hearing was progressing, as reported by JustTheNews.com:

In a statement apparently authored shortly after Rosenstein made that assertion, McCabe said that Rosenstein’s “claims to have been misled by me or anyone from the F.B.I.” were “completely false.”

“I briefed Mr. Rosenstein on Jim Comey’s memos describing his interactions with the president days after Mr. Rosenstein wrote the memo firing Jim Comey,” McCabe said, in a statement read by committee Chairman Lindsey Graham.

Rosenstein’s remarks “loo[k] to be another sad attempt by the president and his men to rewrite the history of their actions in 2017,” McCabe said. “They have found in Mr. Rosenstein, then and now, a willing accessory in that effort.”

[End]

Hilariously, Lindsey Graham closed the hearing out by reading McCabe’s statement and allowing Rosenstein to give one more worm-like answer:

“I did not say that Mr. McCabe misled me,” he said. “Those were not my words. I think he is responding to somebody’s question.”

“What I said was, he did not reveal the Comey memos to me for a week. And that is true. He revealed them to me only a couple of hours before they showed up in the New York Times, and he did not reveal to me that he was having internal deliberations with his team about whether to target high-profile people for investigation.”

[End]

Here’s reality: Rosenstein admitted under oath today that he had zero basis for signing that FISA warrant; zero basis for believing anyone in the Trump Campaign or Transition team was colluding with the Russians; and thus, zero basis for appointing a special counsel. He admitted that he basically didn’t know nuthin’ about nuthin’ and just allowed himself to be strung along by the coup cabal made up of Obama holdovers at the DOJ and FBI.

Absolutely sickening.

Tomorrow, expect the GOP majority to vote unanimously to issue subpoenas to more than 50 Obama loyalists who tried to fix the 2016 election and then overthrow a duly-elected POTUS.

This is actually gonna be fun to watch.

I leave you with this absolutely epic clip of Senator Ted Cruz destroying Rosenstein, Barack Obama, Susan Rice and Joe Biden at today’s hearing:

That is all.

Rod Rosenstein Has Much to Answer For, if Only the Senators Will Demand he do so

The Afternoon Campaign Update

Rod Rosenstein will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow in Lindsey Graham’s first Obamagate-related hearing since he assumed the chairmanship in January 2019. Supposedly, the committee will then reconvene on Thursday to vote to subpoena a long list of the major players in the whole Russia Collusion hoax that morphed into a soft coup d’etat under the guise of the Mueller Investigation.

Who was the guy responsible for creating the Gestapo/KGB-style Mueller Investigation? Why, Mr. Rosenstein, of course, which, combined with the fact that he also personally signed one of the fraudulently-compiled applications for FISA warrants presumably explains why Graham chose him as the witness to kick off the committee’s festivities. But those are far from the only items of interest we know about Rosenstein’s role in the four-year Obamagate hoax.

Here are some others:

  • We know Rosenstein had a long series of contacts with Robert Mueller in the two weeks leading up to Mueller’s appointment as Special Counsel – what were those about?
  • We know that Rosenstein actually recommended that President Trump appoint Mueller to be his FBI Director after he had fired James Comey.
  • We know Rosenstein actually set up an interview for Mueller for that position with the President himself, and on the very next day appointed Mueller to be the Special Counsel. He should be forced by GOP committee members to explain that timing of events, and why he thought that Mueller of all people would be the right person to lead the Trump FBI.
  • We have very solid indications that Rosenstein, in a meeting with Andrew McCabe and other FBI/DOJ coup cabal participants, offered to wear a wire to record his conversations with the President of the United States.
  • We know that Rosenstein wrote two additional authorization memos extending Mueller’s scope in the months following his appointment, but have not seen the full text of those memos.
  • We know that, because Jeff Sessions was recused, Rosenstein personally had oversight over the entire Mueller enterprise and the rampant abuses and Gestapo-style tactics it used to deprive U.S. citizens of their rights and freedoms. In a span of two solid years, Rosenstein never exercised his authority to rein in the out-of-control special counsel operation.
  • We know that Rosenstein coordinated with then-Washington office U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu to cover up the crimes committed by James Wolfe, the counsel for the Senate Intel Committee who traded national secrets for sex with a New York Times reporter less than half his age.
  • We know that Rosenstein coordinated multiple times with the corrupt U.S. attorneys framing General Mike Flynn to withhold exculpatory documents from Flynn’s defense team.
  • We know that Rosenstein stood before the assembled national press and announced Mueller’s sham indictments of Concorde Management, a Russian firm, knowing full well those indictments had zero substance behind them and were purely for show.

This is all stuff I can think of just off the top of my head – there is no doubt much, much more fertile ground to be plowed in tomorrow’s hearing with Rosenstein if Graham and his fellow GOP committee members are willing to do so.

Certainly, if this hearing were being held before the completely corrupted, RINO-filled Senate Intel Committee, we could only rely on Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton to ask anything resembling tough questions of Rosenstein. But here’s the thing about the Judiciary Committee: There are half a dozen Republican members who can be counted on to really take it to this witness.

Those senators include:

  • Texas Senator Ted Cruz;
  • Missouri Senator Josh Hawley;
  • Crusty old Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley;
  • Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn;
  • Louisiana Senator John Kennedy; and
  • Senator Graham himself, who, despite his interminable delaying tactics, can be counted on to put on a good show in front of the TV cameras.

The rest of the Republicans – Senators Mike Lee (UT), John Cornyn (TX), Joni Ernst (IA), Mike Crapo (ID), Ben Sasse (NE), and Thom Tillis (NC) will likely be useless. And of course, the Democrat members can be counted on to obfuscate and resort to their usual subject-shifting histrionics. Because they aren’t serious people, and that’s what they do.

Rosenstein is a clever and skilled lawyer, so no one should expect any slip-ups or big new revelations to escape his thin lips. But he will be testifying under oath, and the six senators listed above will make sure that this hearing will not be easy for him.

He has much to answer for.

That is all.

The Inescapable Conclusion: General Mike Flynn Was Framed

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

You could never make this stuff up, folks. Never in a billion gazillion years. – During what had to have been the most ironic “Town Hall for Women” event in world history yesterday, given the two participants’ history of serially abusing women, the Pantsuit Princess spent about a minute and a half bestowing her formal endorsement upon Quid Pro China Joe Biden. Hilariously, the elderly, clearly impaired and rapidly declining presumptive nominee of the Democrat Party actually appeared to nod off on camera for about 15 seconds while the Fainting Felon was droning on:

Continuing to run this declining man out there in front of the cameras by his staff and his craven wife is disgusting. This is elder abuse, folks. There are laws against this stuff. Is there no one on earth who actually cares about Joe Biden as a human being? The evidence available to us on the public record indicates the answer is ‘no.’

Speaking of evidence on the public record… – The law firm that formerly represented General Mike Flynn (which also happens to be the law firm in which former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder is a partner) just suddenly and completely coincidentally realized this week that it had been illegally withholding 6,800 pages of potentially exculpatory evidence in the Flynn case and turned it all over to the court of Judge Emmet Sullivan yesterday without prior notice.

Why, it was like, totally just a “communications error” according to the firm, Covington and Burling, y’all. The firm assures us that the sudden “discovery” of this mass of documents had nothing at all to do with the fact that, last Friday, the Justice Department itself had released what current Flynn attorney Sidney Powell believes to be a treasure trove of exculpatory evidence, likely including emails and other communications between DOJ lawyers and the original Covington and Burling lawyers who worked on the case.

Think about it: If the DOJ treasure trove contains emails between those parties that had not already been turned over to the court by Covington and Burling, that would be clear evidence that the firm had been withholding relevant documents that should have been turned over years ago. So, presto changeo!, the firm suddenly “finds” 6,800 pages of relevant documents that had been withheld for years and blames it all on a clerical error. Nothing suspicious about this at all, folks – it’s all totes normal and stuff, or something.

Is everyone beginning to understand now why General Flynn decided to fire these lawyers last year?

Apparently growing weary of all of the lawyerly shenanigans that he has allowed to continue to take place in his court for years now, Judge Sullivan responded to Covington and Burling’s latest muck-up by ordering the firm to examine all of its files one more time and come back to his court on Monday, May 4 and swear under oath that it has now turned over every document in its possession that is in any way relevant to this case. The evidence available on the public record indicates that the Judge has a better chance of winning the Mega-Millions lotto than he does of getting an honest response from this firm.

Sullivan is not the only guy who is tired of all the nonsense. Crusty old Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, who chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee during the first two years of this travesty of justice, sent a letter over to Attorney General William Barr on Monday, accusing former Acting AG Oily Rod Rosenstein of obstructing the Judiciary Committee’s previous inquiries into the DOJ’s conduct of this case, and urging Barr to make all documents related to the case public as soon as possible.

Here’s that letter:

Image

The inescapable conclusion to come to, given all of the evidence that we now have on the public record, is that Sidney Powell is exactly right when she says that General Mike Flynn was entrapped and framed. He was framed not by some Mafia outfit, but by an utterly corrupt FBI and DOJ whose senior personnel were functioning just like some Mafia outfit. Even worse, it is beginning to appear as if Flynn’s own original lawyers may have actually been working in cooperation with those corrupt FBI and DOJ personnel who, remember, were all tied into the Mueller Investigation and all the rampant corruption that entailed.

This is an epic, disgusting scandal for the ages. If Judge Sullivan, after the revelation of all of this monstrous deception and chicanery taking place in his court, cannot at long last summon the personal integrity to summarily dismiss this case, then the time has well and truly arrived for President Trump to issue a full and complete pardon to General Flynn.

And then, just for fun, the President should make every leftist head in America explode simultaneously by re-hiring General Flynn, not as his new National Security Advisor, but to replace the worthless, corrupt Christopher Wray as Director of the FBI.

That, folks, would be real justice.

That is all.

What is the Game with the Horowitz Report?

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

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is not a happy man. – The former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is understandably irritated about the seemingly endless delays in the process of getting the report on FISA abuse from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released to the public. Grassley made his concerns known in a tweet issued Tuesday afternoon:

Indeed, what is the game with this long-delayed report from an investigation that started more than 20 months ago in early 2018? The report has been rumored in the fake news media to be complete and ready for release since at least April of this year, yet we still have seen neither hide nor hair of it. Grassley’s reference to “next week when they said it would” is actually a reference to reports from Sara Carter and others claiming that their “sources” were telling them the report would be issued on or around November 18.

This is about the 600th “sourced” issue date for the report that Carter and others have rolled out on Sean Hannity’s radio and/or TV programs since April. Hannity himself has repeatedly claimed that his own “sources” were telling him the report was just bound to be released at some point every month for the last six months. And yet, here we sit, still without this supposedly crucial report.

And it only gets worse: Late Tuesday evening, the Associated Press issued a report that clearly tells us we won’t see this report next week, or the week after that, or anytime before at least early December. Here’s the key passage:

The inspector general in recent days has invited witnesses and their lawyers who were interviewed for the report to review portions of a draft this week and next, a critical final step toward making the document public, according to multiple people familiar with the process who insisted on anonymity to discuss it.

As part of that process, the people will have opportunities to raise concerns or suggest potential edits, making it unclear precisely when in the coming weeks a final version could be ready for release. Inspector General Michael Horowitz told Congress in a letter last month that he did not expect a lengthy review period and that he intended to make as much of the report public as possible, with minimal redactions.

Oh. It is “unclear precisely when in the coming weeks a final version could be ready for release.” Well, knock me over with a feather.

This witness review process could take a few weeks, or it could take months. It could even result in the release of the report being delayed until after Election Day 2020, at which time it could be safely quashed from ever seeing the light of day should a Democrat win the presidency.

Why? Because each and every one of these witnesses has a high-powered lawyer representing them, and those lawyers will no doubt employ every tactic for delay they can come up with, given that they are no doubt all loyal players whose livelihoods depend on the preservation of the DC Swamp and its corruption.

And presto! Just as if it were coordinated in advance, the reliable deep state mouth organ Washington Post issued its own report just hours after the AP report in which it claims that, while the timelines for some witness reviews have already been established, the timelines for others are “still being negotiated”:

Several witnesses have been scheduled or are in talks to review sections of the report dealing with their testimony in the next two weeks, the people said on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.

Even better for the deep state, the witnesses can submit feedback, which could result in further delays and force additional “investigations”:

That could mean public release is imminent, though the witnesses will be allowed to submit feedback — which could spark more investigative work and slow down the process.

Oh. And guess what? Any additional investigative work might – just might – result in new revelations of wrongdoing, which would the result in the accused persons within the FBI and DOJ getting yet another lengthy bite at the apple to review the findings and provide their own “feedback,” which could in turn create the need for more investigative work and witness interviews and feedback and counterclaims and lawyer tactics and corrupt FBI demands for redactions and on and on and on and on ad nauseum.

Oh.

Here’s the lesson for Senator Grassley: You need to stop watching or listening to Sean Hannity and his gang of tick-tock monkeys. Sean Hannity has aired essentially the same hour of TV and three hours of radio five days a week for the past three years now. His incessant, repeated claims of “big revelations coming” that will be “devastating” and result in “multiple criminal referrals” and yada-yada-yada and blah-blah-blah have become the single most tiresome feature of our national news media.

So, to quote Sen. Grassley: “WHAT THE GAME IS?”

The game is delay. The game is being played by not only Horowitz himself, but by Christopher Wray, by Dana Boente, by other corrupt DOJ and FBI officials, by the felons who participated and still participate in the coup cabal, by the witnesses and their lawyers and their willing accomplices in the fake news media.

And here’s the biggest problem, Sen. Grassley: The game is also being played by your successor at the Judiciary Committee, your esteemed colleague Lindsey Graham. If you really are frustrated by all the delays, well, Sen. Graham has the power to convene a hearing and subpoena Horowitz, Wray, Boente and anyone else he wants to and ask them why they are playing this game.

Graham has in fact had that power for 10 months now and failed to convene a single hearing or issue a single subpoena related to this matter.

Tick-tock. Tick-tock. Tick-to…oh hell, nevermind.

That is all.

Bad Lindsey Graham Has Made a Comeback

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

Bad Lindsey Graham has re-taken the body. – In case you hadn’t noticed, Bad Lindsey Graham has made a comeback this year. Good Lindsey Graham came increasingly to the fore last year as John McCain’s absence due to illness and subsequent death released Graham from his daily duties of following McCain around like a puppy on a leash.

Unleashed Lindsey turned out to be a pretty consistently conservative guy and loyal supporter of his country’s best interests and of a President from his own party, quite the direct contrast to Senator From the News Media McCain. Go figure. He was so good, in fact, that his powerful, impromptu speech before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the midst of the Democrats’ despicable smearing of Brett Kavanaugh last October very likely changed the entire course of that nomination.

So it was that, when Unleashed Lindsey ascended to the Chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee in January, conservatives were encouraged that he would continue the aggressive conduct of the Committee’s business that we had seen under Chuck Grassley. Grassley had done stellar work in confirming judicial nominees and investigating the real criminals in the Spygate scandal. Unleashed Lindsey himself talked a good game, promising repeatedly throughout the winter and into the spring to use his chairmanship to aggressively pursue the Obama-era scumbags who utterly corrupted the FBI and intelligence agencies. As recently as March 25, Graham was overtly promising that his Committee would conduct its own, parallel investigation into Spygate’s origins even as Attorney General William Barr conducted his own inquiry at the Department of Justice.

But since then? Crickets.

As the Democrat-dominated House committees have tossed out hundreds of subpoenas and conducted an aggressive hearing schedule designed to turn public opinion against President Donald Trump and the GOP, Unleashed Lindsey has done…nothing. Not a single hearing. Not one subpoena. No letters to the DOJ containing criminal referrals.

Nothing. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

Unleashed Lindsey, it seems, has been re-leashed, and this time we don’t have John McCain to blame. Indeed, there is no difference at all between Re-Leashed Lindsey’s conduct of the Judiciary Committee and the conduct of the Senate Intelligence Committee by its’ Chairman, deep state skunk Richard Burr of North Carolina. With Republican “friends” like these controlling the key Senate committees, President Trump has no need for enemies.

So, who has “gotten to” Re-Leashed Lindsey? Does it matter, really? Back in early May, the Campaign Update expressed the concern that Graham was one of the most easily-compromisable senators in Washington. It appears that concern was well-founded.

Graham and his Committee continue to confirm President Trump’s judicial nominees at a record pace, and for that we should all be grateful, since Obama, in his efforts to corrupt every institution in our society, had obviously succeeded in corrupting the federal judiciary as well. But Re-Leashed Lindsey’s do-nothing posture towards his Committee’s investigative powers will, if continued, forever be a stain on his senate career.

That is all.

Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson Lob a Bombshell over to William Barr

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

Well, that’s kind of a big deal.  – The fake news media and Teen Drama Queen James Comey will no doubt squeal that they shouldn’t use that bad word, “spying”, but Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson disagree. Grassley, who chairs the Senate Finance Committee and Johnson, Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, sent a joint letter over to Attorney General William Barr on Thursday in which they detail their concerns that the Obama-era Deep State Cabal within the DOJ and FBI continued to spy on the Trump operation after it had failed to fix the election for the Pantsuit Princess.

The letter cites texts between FBI Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok and his illicit lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page as evidence that efforts to entrap Trump officials in situations that could be construed as being improper was still ongoing weeks after the election had come and gone. The letter also notes the vast array of illegal leaks being published by the fake news media during the transition, leaks containing information that almost surely came from someone within DOJ or the FBI.  Here’s a key passage:

Additionally, we note that a number of news outlets have reported sensitive information related to the investigation into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Those reports have revealed sensitive information focusing on the FBI sending informants to meet withTrump advisors; a warrant to surveil Carter Page; and the United Kingdom signal intelligence agency briefing former CIA Director John Brennan on alleged communications between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials, among other things. 11 Notably, the Justice Department Inspector General’s review of the Clinton investigation found “profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel…” 12 It appears the same happened during the Russia investigation. Leaks to the media about ongoing investigations undermine the ability of investigators to properly investigate. Moreover, sensitive leaks to the media while members of congress performing constitutionally mandated oversight are kept in the dark is unacceptable.

 

The senators, both of whose committees have oversight over the activities of the DOJ, go on to order Barr to work with their staff to schedule a joint hearing in the near future to provide testimony to the committees about the following:

  1. Please describe the nature and extent of your review of FBI surveillance of theTrump Campaign, President-elect Trump’s transition staff, Vice Presidentelect Pence’s transition staff, President Trump’s staff, and Vice PresidentPence’s staff, including your efforts to determine whether that surveillance was adequately predicated.
  2. How many counter-intelligence briefings were provided to the Trump and Pence transition staffs prior to Inauguration Day? Please list the dates, all agencies involved, and each official that represented those agencies at the briefings.
  3. Many of the FBI employees involved in these activities are no longer employed by the federal government. How will your review obtain information needed from these individuals?

Now, this is all a bit of well-orchestrated Washington, DC kabuki theater, of course. Anyone who has been paying attention to the information that has come to light about the Obama Administrations efforts to spy on the Trump camp has been aware for well over a year that those efforts continued not only through the transition, but that Obama holdovers at DOJ and the FBI kept it all going well after Trump’s inauguration.

Hell, that’s essentially what the entire Mueller Witch Hunt was all about. At the end of the day, it was little more than a Deep State-sanctioned intelligence-gathering operation designed to entrap Trump officials and provide the Democrats with both a roadmap to impeachment and opposition research to use during the 2020 campaign.

But now that Mueller’s operation has folded up shop, it’s finally time for the tables to turn. The letter from Grassley and Johnson demanding a hearing is just a part of the process necessary to start building the public record and case against the real law-breakers. You can be sure that Barr is well aware of the Obama conspiracy to fix the 2016 election and then find a way to depose Trump after he was elected. He was aware of all of that when he wrote his famous 2018 piece slamming the legitimacy of the entire special counsel process, in fact.

So this is not necessarily a “bombshell” for Barr or the few among us who have been paying attention to the case being built against the real bad actors, but for the 99.9% of the population who have been letting the fake news media distract them with all those fake news shiny objects, it is. This letter is a big deal, because it is the trigger that formally kicks off a process of revealing real information to the public through these two key committees.

That’s how this game ultimately works in Washington: Fake justice is very loud, quick and in-your-face on the 24-hour cable channels; but the wheels of real justice turn slowly, inexorably, and take place mainly behind the scenes.

That is all.

The Participants in the Kavanaugh Smear Must be Punished

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember 8 days ago, when Rod Rosenstein was going to be fired?  When he had resigned?  When he had, according to our fake news media, verbally resigned no fewer than five times?  Yeah, those were good times, huh?

Hey, remember when President Trump ordered the declassification of a bunch of documents that have been requested various congressional committees and stonewalled for more than a year by the DOJ and the FBI?  That was, like, 3 weeks ago?  Right?

Hey, remember when every liberal/leftist/socialist/commie in America was telling us that, if you criticize the FBI, you’re committing, like, treason or something?  Yeah, what was that – last month?

Hey, remember when everybody in Washington, DC and your fake news media was telling you how oh, so credible and stuff Ms. Christine Ford was?  That was last Thursday, 6 short days ago.

As of this morning, Ms. Ford’s fairy tale has fallen completely apart.  It turns out that, not only is there no one out there who can verify a single shred of it, but there are people out there who have been able to completely debunk pretty much all of it.  It turns out that Ms. Ford is not just a fabricator, but, if what her former boyfriend attests to in a sworn statement supplied yesterday to the Senate Judiciary Committee, she may even be a bit of a pro at it:

Oh, my.  Oh, my, my, my.  During her testimony, Ms. Ford was asked not once, but three times if she had ever coached anyone about how to take a polygraph test, and every time she replied either “no” or “never.”

Here are other aspects of her story we now know to be completely untrue:

  • She outright lied several times about her interactions with despicable Sen. Dianne Feinstein and her staff.
  • She claimed to have added a new room and second exit to her home in 2012, because of her “claustrophobia” or something.  California records prove that that room and exit were actually added in 2008, and the space was subsequently used for an office and was even rented out to others from time to time.
  • She claimed to have a terrible fear of flying and held up the work of the Judiciary Committee for an entire week using this excuse.  We now know she is in fact a world traveler who flies all the time.
  • She claimed her polygraph test taken in August was very intrusive with the ex-FBI agent who conducted it asking her endless questions about her entire life.  The ex-agent himself says he asked her two questions.
  • She claimed she had no knowledge of the Committee’s offer to fly staff out to California to interview her when she lied about her fear of flying.  Either she or her scumbag lawyers are lying about that.

Speaking of her scumbag lawyers:  Despite all this now-public knowledge about these and other apparent lies Ms. Ford emitted last Thursday in her feigned, trembly 12 year-old valley girl voice, those lawyers sent an angry letter over to Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley last night demanding that their client be interviewed by the FBI yet again before its investigation is shut down:

This is breathtaking malpractice.  It isn’t enough that her testimony has been demonstrated to contain multiple fabrications or that it does not line up with the letter she sent to Senator Feinstein; Now, her own lawyers want her to be formally interviewed by the FBI, creating yet another opportunity for her to perjure herself?

Whatever else happens as this disgusting confirmation fiasco created by the Democrats and their toadies in the fake news media, this behavior must be punished.  All three women who have blatantly, shamelessly lied about Judge Kavanaugh and all of their lawyers – including the Creepy Porn Lawyer – must be punished for putting our country through this disgrace.  Senator Feinstein and her staff should also be put through the wringer for their disgusting roles in this.

Sadly, the Republicans will most likely just confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and let it all go, because they get awful advice from their communications and political advisors, and because most of them are afraid of their own shadows.  We can hold out hope that the few who have shown actual courage through this process – like Lindsey Graham and Grassley – will force ethics investigations of Feinstein, Sen. Chris Coons, Sen. Kamala Harris and others who have obviously coordinated efforts with the accusers and various leftist radical groups, and pound on the Justice Department to pursue criminal actions against the accusers and their lawyers.  But the Republican pattern has always been just let stuff like this go once they’ve won the political battle at hand.

If that happens in this instance, it will forever be a stain on all of them.  Because this wasn’t just a dirty political fight, it is in fact a coordinated effort by the Democrats, their leftist proxy groups and their fake news media toadies to destroy a good man’s life and irrevocably corrupt the confirmation process for Supreme Court justices.  Even worse, it is an effort to forever destroy the presumption of innocence and rights of the accused guaranteed in our constitution, if the accuser is a woman and the accused is a man.  If these people walk away from this unscathed and unpunished, they will only be emboldened to do it all again in the future.

One thing we know for sure, Grassley’s Chief of Staff, Mike Davis, is sick and tired of all of it.  Here is an actual email exchange he had with the Creepy Porn Lawyer on Tuesday:

That’s just 99 varieties of awesome.  And hilarious.

That is all.

This is the America the Democrats Want

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Because Hollywood is bankrupt of ideas. – The “new” version of “Murphy Brown” apparently premiered last night, and, at least according to the reviews, nothing has changed except for the fact that all but one or two of the cast qualifies for Medicare.  The show itself is still the smug, preachy vehicle for leftist writers and leftist actors to pawn their leftist views off on any poor soul who happens to stumble across CBS in their search for reruns of “Flip or Flop”.

Dang it, and I just remembered that the “new” version of “Magnum, PI” premiered on Monday, and I missed it.  Hey, don’t judge me – mediocre remakes of some old ideas are better than others.

Speaking of bad remakes of old ideas, the new version of “The Cosby Show” hasn’t worked out too well for “America’s Dad”, who got sentenced to 3 to 10 years on Tuesday for being a lifelong sexual predator.  While that probably will amount to a life sentence for the 81 year-old Bill Cosby, it doesn’t really seem like enough, does it?

And for any leftist pinheads who are about to scream “but…but…but…BRETT KAVANAUGH!!!!!!!!” at your computer screens, this is actually an instructive moment in time, or it would be if any of you were capable of reasoning in a rational manner.  See, the gigantic difference here is that the accuser of Mr. Cosby in this case brought not only allegations that a crime had been committed upon her, but also brought a ton of actual supporting EVIDENCE of said crime.

It remains questionable whether what Christine Ford alleges even amounts to a “crime” in a legal sense, although it certainly would be bad behavior by a teenage boy 36 years ago.  While the second accuser does allege the commission of an actual crime, she obviously has no real clue whether the person who committed it was in fact Judge Kavanaugh.

Neither accuser of Judge Kavanaugh has to this point brought a single lick of evidence to support their allegations.  Not even life-long friends of either woman are willing to back them in any real way.  Even at this late time, one day before the scheduled hearing, it remains doubtful that either accuser even has enough confidence in their story to be willing to show up and testify under oath.  The second accuser has in fact made it very clear she will not be coming forward; meanwhile, Christine Ford’s crack team of high-dollar Democrat activist lawyers spent the day on Tuesday still making ridiculous demands on terms for her testimony, demands that they know Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will not meet.

The Cosby situation is not remotely comparable to the clown show going on with Judge Kavanaugh, so all of you need to just stop making yourselves look stupid.

The vote has been scheduled, at least for now. – Chairman Grassley did finally take the action of scheduling a vote of his committee for Friday, giving the 72-hour advance notice required by Senate rules.  Democrats naturally wailed and tossed tantrums and did interviews on CNN and MSNBC all afternoon, because hey, they’re Democrats and that’s what they do.

But the vote has been scheduled for September 28, and Majority Leader McConnell took the additional step of notifying every senator to plan to remain in Washington, DC this weekend.  That’s because Sunday is September 30, and McConnell no doubt plans to hold the vote of the full senate on the Kavanaugh nomination that day, after giving the 48 hour notice following the committee vote that is also required by Senate rules.

Oh, these Republicans – they’re such rules followers.

And that’s really the deal here at the end of the day:  If the Republicans just hold together and follow the rules, they will get Judge Kavanaugh confirmed at the very last possible moment for him to take his seat on the Supreme Court when its new session begins next Monday, October 1.  Regardless of all the wailing, moaning, temper tantrums, false witnesses, radical leftist demonstrations, Kamala Harris lies, Cory Booker “I am Spartacus!” moments, and a never-ending parade of d-list celebrities and other mental patients being paid by George Soros and the DNC to disrupt the process, the Democrats remain powerless to stop this nomination when all is said and done.

Their only remaining hope is to do so much bullying and yelling and screaming and planting of so many fake news stories in their media outlet partners that they are able to convince any two Republican squish senators to vote against the nomination.  Their main targets have been exactly who you’d expect:  Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and of course Jeff Flake.  For Collins and Murkowski, the question is all about their support for abortion and for Flake its all about burnishing his credentials for his post-senate gig as a paid contributor to CNN or MSNBC, where he has become the favorite fake Republican ever since John McCain took ill a year ago.

Collins so far has remained pretty firm in the face of all the Democrat abortion lobby fury that’s come her way.  Murkowski seems to be going wobbly, and keeps talking nonsense about how an “FBI investigation” could just solve all of this, even though the 6 previous FBI background checks Kavanaugh has been subjected to never turned up anything worse than parking tickets in his life.

Flake is Flake:  a preening, disloyal, self-promoting jerk whose time in the Senate blessedly ends on December 31 in any event.  He for some absurd reason sits on the Judiciary Committee (how did McConnell allow that to happen?) and thus could tip the vote to the Democrats there if he wants to.  The nomination would still go to a vote of the full Senate in any event, but with a “do not confirm” recommendation that could give other fence-sitting Republicans an excuse to vote with the Democrats.

It’s a momentous week:  As despicably as the Democrats and the media have behaved to this point, you should only expect it to become more despicable, hysterical and shrill as Sunday approaches.

This is the America the Democrat Party has given us, the America the Democrats want, the America their lord and savior Saul Alinsky envisioned.  Never forget that immutable fact.

That is all.

Time to Call the Vote or Just Surrender, Mitch

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So much hypocrisy, so little time. – It would be impossible to detail all the rank hypocrisy coming from the political left related to the Kavanaugh nomination right now, but this tweet from Moveon.org just cannot go unmentioned:

For all you Millennials out there who are too young to remember, Moveon.org’s name LITERALLY refers to the one and only reason for its creation in the late 1990s, which was to use Saul Alinsky tactics to convince the public to “just move on” from Bill Clinton’s serial sexual abuses. LITERALLY.

Ok, one more breathtakingly disgusting tweet from a leftist organization that cannot go unmentioned:

That’s right, friends, the demented creeps at Amnesty International want you all to believe that Brett Kavanaugh is actually, in his spare time, a budding Saddam Hussein.  Holy crap.

 

The Creepy Porn Lawyer is frustrated. – Speaking of demented creeps, Michael Avenatti was on Twitter on Monday complaining that his emails to the lead counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee, Mike Davis were not getting returned in a timely manner.  Someone really should let this guy know that the congressional email system automatically shoves any incoming emails whose IP address is Creepy.Porn.Lawyer.1 over to the spam folder.

But the Creepy Porn Lawyer is coming, and apparently a whole string of exactly who you’d expect are coming with him (no puns intended). – Avenatti’s latest story keeps changing, which is not surprising coming from this greasy carnival barker.  He started it off with the following tweet on Sunday:

But last night, in an interview on – guess where? – CNN, which is always willing to accommodate any anti-Trump hack who wants his face on national TV, the Creepy Porn Lawyer claimed to have “multiple” women willing to claim that Mr. Kavanaugh engaged in all sorts of sexual shenanigans while in college.  He further pledged to start bringing them forward – no doubt also on CNN – within the next 48 hours.  So, just in time to pre-empt the hearing scheduled for Thursday at which both Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Ford are supposedly going to testify.

Gosh, what a coincidence, right?

So, we now have the Democrats’ game fully laid out for all to see, and it goes like this:

  • Find some initial accuser willing to smear Kavanaugh and also willing to pretend to be willing to testify under oath;
  • Derail the scheduled process by insisting that the first accuser cannot possibly be ready to testify by Monday, Sept. 24, and demand a later hearing;
  • Once you get that later hearing scheduled, then issue a constantly-changing set of demands that you know Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley will not meet, because your client has no intention of ever testifying under oath and potential felony charges for perjury;
  • As the new hearing date approaches, get another accuser who also has no earthly intention of testifying under oath out in front of the public to create confusion and place further pressure on Kavanaugh and cowardly senate RINOs Republicans like Jeff Flake and Susan Collins;
  • As the second accuser’s story is being systematically shown to be an outright fraud that is even too fake for the freaking New York Times to run, bring out the Creepy Porn Lawyer to up the pressure with even more absurd and salacious claims against the nominee;
  • All the while, have your depraved and evil Democrat senators like Dianne Feinstein and that brain-dead nitwit from Hawaii all over TV insisting that the Thursday hearing be cancelled because you know your “witness” has no intention of showing up for it.

This is classic Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals 101.  You have to give the Democrats credit – this bit of evil destruction of a good man’s reputation and life has been extremely well-coordinated.  The obvious effort is to create such a high degree of confusion that the average member of the public cannot possibly figure out what the truth is and ultimately gets to the point where they all say “enough!  stop this madness!” and the nomination gets pulled by its sponsors.

As we sit here this morning, there is no real way to know with certainty if the Democrats and their fake news media wall of propaganda will achieve their end goals, but the GOP’s foolish efforts to pretend their accusers are acting in good faith (they aren’t) and negotiating with their extremely expensive lawyers moves the ball forward for the bad guys with each passing day.

Majority Leader McConnell can make all the tough floor speeches he wants (he made a pretty good one on Monday), but until he calls an end to this circus and forces a vote on the nomination, he is playing directly into the Democrats’ twisted, gnarled hands.

In the end, McConnell, Grassley and the Senate Republicans are either going to have to take a stand and force a vote, or ask Kavanaugh and President Trump to pull the nomination.  Had they done what they should have done and gone forward with the scheduled committee vote yesterday, they could be holding the final vote tomorrow.

The Senate Rs appear to be living under an illusion that if they just keep negotiating and compromising, their Democrat “colleagues” will ultimately start behaving reasonably and the pressure will relent.  This is insanity and frankly stupid.  In fact, the Democrats will only continue increasing the pressure and bringing more and more accusers out of the woodwork to make increasingly outrageous claims.

When it becomes obvious to even the most clueless GOP senate members late on Wednesday that Ms. Ford is not going to show up for Thursday’s hearing, McConnell and Grassley need to simply schedule a vote.  If that doesn’t happen, then this nomination is dead, and our constitutionally-guaranteed rights to the presumption of innocence and to face one’s accusers are dead along with it.

It really is that simple.

That is all.
