Why the Flynn Win and Strzok Notes are Major Obamagate Developments

Wednesday was a momentous day for anyone who cares about the rule of law and the future of the country. Which of course means that the corrupt political activists who infest our national news media have no clue about any of it, and the Democrat politicians and RINOs in Washington DC are scared to death, because they do understand, but hate it.

It wasn’t just because General Mike Flynn and his kickass lawyer Sidney Powell partially won their appeal for a writ of mandamus before the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, although that was a big part of it. The other big deal – perhaps even bigger in terms of the future of the country – was the release of disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok’s notes from a meeting held on January 4, 2017 at the White House.

Let’s work with the Court of Appeals decision first. People need to understand what an incredibly rare thing it is in our country these days for any federal appellate court to slap down a federal judge as the completely out of control Emmet Sullivan was slapped down yesterday. A writ of mandamus is a step a defense lawyer takes only as a last resort, when the trial judge in their case has gone so far outside the bounds of the prevailing law that it has become impossible for their client to receive a fair trial in the court.

That reality is why so many expert observers were predicting that Powell’s request would be rejected, which would have allowed Judge Sullivan to keep stringing this case out past Election Day in November, which we now clearly see has been his goal all along. While the 3-judge appeals panel did not completely remove the case from Sullivan’s court, it did order him to dismiss ex-federal judge John Gleeson, who he had hired at taxpayer expense to improperly intervene in the case, and to dismiss the case outright, as the Department of Justice moved to do many weeks ago.

As we pointed out yesterday, Sullivan still has the option of requesting an en banc hearing before the full appeals court panel, but doing that poses very high risks for the future of his already damaged career. Regardless, yesterday’s order by the 3-judge panel preserves the separation of powers under the constitution, and will forever be a stain on Sullivan’s reputation, which had been pretty solid before his gross misconduct of this case. The decision is a huge win for the preservation of the rule of law in this country.

Strzok’s notes are just as important for one single reason: They provide a contemporary record that directly implicates both Joe Biden and Barack Obama as willing and active participants in Obamagate, providing strategic direction for the coup cabal.

The first thing to understand is that that January 4 meeting has not previously been noted as being important in any real way. The second thing to note is that Strzok himself was not in the meeting – his notes are apparently from a meeting he had later in the day with FBI Director James Comey.

Image

In that meeting, Obama, Biden and Comey (it is unknown if there were other participants) were discussing how to proceed vis a vis Flynn, who we now understand was a big target of Obama all along. Remember, when Trump met with Obama two days after the 2016 election, Trump came away from that meeting stunned that the one and only foreign policy matter Obama brought up was an admonition that Trump should avoid hiring General Flynn. I discussed the reasons why Obama was so worried about Flynn in that piece yesterday.

Here’s an excerpt:

Because, remember: Flynn knows where all of the bodies are buried here. This case was never about “Russia Collusion”; it never had anything to do with any real concerns about Flynn’s calls during the transition with Russian Ambassador Kysliak; it never had anything to do with any of the abject nonsense fantasy narratives that the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies have been pushing on the public since 2017.

This case was about protecting the dirty secrets behind Obama’s despicable deal with Iran, which, if left in place would have ensured Iran became the preeminent power in the Middle East, one armed with nuclear weapons. Flynn was fired by Obama in 2014 from his position as Director of Defense Intelligence because he raised objections regarding the negotiations over that deal, and that is why Obama/Biden and other high Obama officials could not stomach the thought of Flynn serving as National Security Advisor.

That’s why Flynn became the target of what we know beyond any doubt now was a blatant effort to frame him by the FBI; it is why he was targeted by American Gestapo Chief Robert Mueller and his enabler, Rod Rosenstein to begin with; and it is why Judge Sullivan has spent the past three years passing on at least half a dozen previous opportunities to dismiss this case and tolerating an unending stream of prosecutorial malfeasance in his courtroom.

[End]

In that January 4 meeting, it is obvious that Obama and Biden – who remember, actually unmasked General Flynn personally in early December, 2016 – remain very concerned about Flynn and all he knows. We see Biden himself become the first person to raise the idea of framing Flynn by using the Logan Act, an archaic relic of law under which no American citizen has ever been prosecuted. That’s how thin a reed these desperate people were pulling here.

We then have Comey telling Obama and Biden that Flynn’s calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak are “legit,” i.e., not really fit for pursuit under the Logan Act. Regardless, we next see Obama, then the President of the United States, instructing the Director of the FBI to “look at this”, i.e., trying to build a case under the Logan Act, and to “have the right people on it.”

In January 2017, who were the “right people” at the FBI to have on an effort to frame a high incoming official in the Trump Administration? Why, you’d start with Peter Strzok, of course, since by then Strzok had already led efforts to fake the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server, led the illegal spying effort – “Crossfire Hurricane” – on the Trump campaign and transition team, and to concoct false rationale to defraud the FISA court. Which is why the first thing Comey did when he got back to the Hoover Building was call Strzok – and perhaps Strzok’s bosses, Andrew McCabe and Bill Priestap – into a meeting to do a download.

Those notes, and that January 4 meeting, are a big, fat hairy deal, folks. Assuming John Durham and William Barr are really planning to execute some real justice related to Obamagate, those notes will make it very hard for them to continue to pretend that Biden and Obama themselves are above scrutiny. Once his case has been fully dismissed and he is able to speak freely, we can expect Flynn to make doing that even harder still.

It was a coup d’etat on American soil, folks, led and planned by Obama and Biden. I’ve been telling you this since mid-2017, and here we are.

As I always like to tell skeptical people: A “conspiracy theory” is not a “theory” when it is standing right in front of you slapping you in your stupid face. This one has been slapping us all for a long, long time.

That is all.

Despite DC Circuit Order to Dismiss, Flynn’s Ordeal is not Over Yet

Everyone needs to cool their heels on this Flynn dismissal order for a bit. While we are all very happy that the three-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals ordered District Judge Emmet Sullivan to end his abusive treatment of General Flynn in its order Wednesday, it is a tad too soon to just assume Sullivan will simply accede to the order and dismiss the case. General Flynn himself is on with Rush Limbaugh confirming this is the case as I write this, in fact.

Sullivan is clearly a tool of the deep state, and we must remember why he has worked so hard to string this case out for years now when any righteous, ethical judge would have tossed it out of court in a summary judgment in 2018. Sullivan’s goal is the same as the deep state’s goal – to keep this case alive, and by extension keep Flynn from telling all he knows, until after November 3.

Because, remember: Flynn knows where all of the bodies are buried here. This case was never about “Russia Collusion”; it never had anything to do with any real concerns about Flynn’s calls during the transition with Russian Ambassador Kysliak; it never had anything to do with any of the abject nonsense fantasy narratives that the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies have been pushing on the public since 2017.

This case was about protecting the dirty secrets behind Obama’s despicable deal with Iran, which, if left in place would have ensured Iran became the preeminent power in the Middle East, one armed with nuclear weapons. Flynn was fired by Obama in 2014 from his position as Director of Defense Intelligence because he raised objections regarding the negotiations over that deal, and that is why Obama/Biden and other high Obama officials could not stomach the thought of Flynn serving as National Security Advisor.

That’s why Flynn became the target of what we know beyond any doubt now was a blatant effort to frame him by the FBI; it is why he was targeted by American Gestapo Chief Robert Mueller and his enabler, Rod Rosenstein to begin with; and it is why Judge Sullivan has spent the past three years passing on at least half a dozen previous opportunities to dismiss this case and tolerating an unending stream of prosecutorial malfeasance in his courtroom.

The bad news here is that Sullivan is either hopelessly corrupt or – more likely – hopelessly compromised, and that he is not yet out of bullets to fire, despite the ruling by he Appeals court today. The Judge could obviously string this thing out for at least another month or two simply by demanding an en banc hearing before the full membership of the DC Circuit. While the Circuit would not be obligated to grant such a motion by the Judge, fellow deep state skunks on that body would certainly be able to delay any final decision for weeks while the corrupt news media conducted a pressure campaign.

With Peter Strzok’s notes from a January 4, 2017 meeting at the White House out today and now directly implicating both Joe Biden and Barack Obama in the attempt to entrap and frame Flynn, the very last thing the coup plotters want to see now is an exonerated Mike Flynn out doing media interviews and finally, at long last, talking about everything he knows.

My most fervent wish here is that I may have completely misjudged Sullivan in this instance. Instead of being a compromised tool of the deep state coup cabal, maybe he is simply a power-mad lifetime Federal Judge who has simply lost his way and all sight of what real, actual justice looks like. If the latter is the case, then perhaps he will take today’s ruling as any rational person would do and cut his losses here.

But if I am right about him, and he really is compromised and/or hopelessly corrupt, then we should expect him to keep firing every shot he has until the day comes when he finally, at long last, runs out of bullets to fire.

That is all.

BOOM: DC Circuit Court Orders Emmet Sullivan To Dismiss Flynn Persecution

This just came across the wires – will have an update later in the day.

A federal appeals court on Wednesday ordered a judge to grant the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) unusual move to drop charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

A three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals approved Flynn’s petition to intervene in the case after a district court judge had tapped an outside counsel to argue against the DOJ’s move.

Here is the text of the order from the 2-1 decision by the 3-judge panel:

“ORDERED that Flynn’s petition for a writ of mandamus be granted in part; the District Court is directed to grant the government’s Rule 48(a) motion to dismiss; and the District Court’s order appointing an amicus is hereby vacated as moot, in accordance with the opinion of the court filed herein this date,” the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled on Wednesday.

Then there’s this… – New notes taken by Peter Strzok on January 4, 2017 have just been made public, and they directly implicate both Biden and Obama in the framing of Flynn:

More coming later…

Wednesday News Roundup: Fauci Follies, Rioters Give Notice, and Barr Knows it was a Coup

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Stocks rose again on Tuesday, with the NASDAQ achieving its 21st record-high closing level of 2021. Even better, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that U.S. housing sales leapt by a whopping 16.6% from April to May, and that May’s level of sales was 12.3% higher than in May 2019. This is what the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the nation’s news media want to destroy.

Don’t expect there to be a vaccine for the Wuhan Virus, folks. – Students of strategic communications will understand that Dr. Anthony Fauci made that pretty clear in testimony to congress yesterday. Look carefully at the statement he made there:

“I still think there is a reasonably good chance that by the very beginning of 2021, that if we’re going to have a vaccine, that we will have it by then,” he said.

Now, NBC, Vox.com and other leftist fake news outlets reported on that in a way that makes it sound as if Fauci is saying we will have a vaccine by the end of this year. But is that what he really said there?

Break that carefully worded, pre-prepared statement down: “I still think…” “there is a reasonably good chance…” “if we’re going to have a vaccine…” “we will have it by then.”

So, Fauci “thinks” – he doesn’t feel confident, he isn’t sure – “there is a reasonably good chance” – define “reasonably” please – “IF we’re going to have a vaccine” – not “when” – “we will have it by then.” That’s a lot of weasel words in one sentence, folks.

That statement does not convey confidence. In fact, it conveys that the speaker has a tremendous amount of uncertainty, and perhaps even a knowledge that he really doesn’t believe we will have a vaccine – at least not an effective one – at all. So he feels the need to use this highly-qualified language in order to avoid being accused of lying later. Which, given Fauci’s track record of never having found an effective vaccine for any previous virus during his 40 year career, makes complete sense.

If you’ve been thinking that it wouldn’t be any big deal to just shut everything down again until the first of the year when Fauci and Bill Gates will presumably deliver unto us a miracle cure, you might want to think again.

The American Taliban is now putting out meeting minders. – A group of Antifa/BLM agitators gave  the U.S. Park Police and other federal law enforcement agencies a head’s up yesterday, literally announcing to the world that they plan to topple the Emancipation Monument in Washington D.C.’s Lincoln Park at 7:00 on Thursday. That’s Eastern Time, for all you folks at the FBI.

Criticism has constantly surrounded the memorial, pictured above, because of the way in which it depicts Lincoln towering over a freed person kneeling on the ground with him looking up. Below the work 'emancipation's is written

From a report in the Daily Mail:

President Trump called on Congress to act Tuesday night after protesters in Washington D.C. were seen burning an American flag.

The president branded the demonstrators ‘lowlifes’, adding that it ‘should be stopped’.

His criticism came after protesters pledged to tear down Lincoln’s Emancipation Memorial in the Capitol, vowing to return to Lincoln Park Thursday night to topple the controversial statue.

Organizers of the protest said they would not be working with the police and would achieve change ‘by any means necessary’ as they crowded near the 150-year-old statue paid for by former enslaved people.

Although paid for by former slaves, the Emancipation Memorial is criticized as it was designed by white people and depicts a former slave in a subservient position to Lincoln.

[End]

Given that we can be certain that DC Mayor Muriel Bowser will not lift a finger to preserve this memorial paid for by freed slaves, the ball here is entirely in the court of President Donald Trump and the federal Park Police. At least they know when to show up.

 

Hey, those mail-in ballots are fine – no potential for fraud here at all. You can trust those Democrats to keep everything on the up and up. Nothing to see here, er, um, well…

Body camera footage? What body camera footage? – Speaking of trusting Democrats to keep things on the up and up…

John Solomon at JustTheNews.com has an interesting piece this morning. – Yeah, Solomon has been one of Sean Hannity’s Tick-Tock crew for the past three years, but he also does tremendous investigative reporting and is often very perceptive in his analysis.

This piece is titled “Seven big hints Barr has dropped about Durham’s investigation of the Russia investigators,” which is self-explanatory. Most of it is stuff I’ve already covered here, but #4 on Solomon’s list is worth noting again:

4. Barr views the FBI’s continuation of the Russia probe after the Steele dossier “collapsed” as an illegitimate effort to remove the president.

Barr has repeatedly cited the fact that the FBI continued to rely on the Steele dossier after the former MI6 agent’s primary sub-source contradicted information in the dossier in January 2017 and March 2017 — and failed to tell the FISA court about the problems with the repudiated evidence.

“The dossier pretty much collapsed at that point — and yet they continued to use it as a basis for pursuing this counterintelligence investigation,” Barr noted this past weekend.

The attorney general suggested such behavior supports arguments that what was really going on was an attempted coup to remove Trump from office. “It is the closest we have come to an organized effort to push a president out of office,” he said.

[End]

It was a coup d’etat on American soil, organized initially by one sitting President to take out his successor. That’s what it was, and the Attorney General of the United States understands that fact.

As I keep saying, these Antifa/BLM agitators are a tiny minority of our country and do not have the power to tear it apart. However, a failure by Barr and Durham to bring any of the coup plotters to justice actually could cause that to happen. Because once we lose all faith in the American system of justice – and we are right on the verge of that taking place thanks to Obama’s utter corruption of our institutions – then the country will have lost its very foundation.

Time is getting very short before the November election, Mr. Barr. If you have crimes to prosecute, best get started now. Because if Joe Biden wins the election, all of Durham’s work will be torn into a million pieces and scattered to the winds.

That is all.

Where Democrat Collusion Fantasies are Concerned, China is the new Russia

Hey! Anybody up for the “China Collusion” fantasy scam? – That’s what’s coming next from the Democrat/Media Axis of Disinformation, as was made clear on the Sunday morning talk shows. Democrat activist hosts Martha Raddatz of ABC and NBC’s weaselly Chuck Todd kicked off the festivities, with Fake Jake Tapper playing a supporting role.

Hilariously, this entire scam will revolve around the media’s former whipping boy, John Bolton, who has suddenly become their newest turncoat hero now that he’s taking shots at President Donald Trump.

Todd interviewed bug-eyed Adam Schiff on his gabfest, “Meet the Press.” There he practically begged Schiff to start new impeachment hearings ASAP based on the baseless and unsupported fables Bolton tells in his book about Trump’s dealings with China’s Xi Jinping. As reported by Fox News:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff suggested on Sunday that former national security adviser John Bolton may soon testify before his panel – and that a fresh new round of impeachment proceedings may result from the memoir.

Schiff, D-Calif., made the remarks as Bolton, appearing on a separate talk show, charged that the Schiff-lead impeachment proceedings earlier this year were “too politicized” to bother with.

The back-and-forth came days after a federal judge determined that Bolton’s decision to publish his upcoming tell-all memoir on the Trump administration had “exposed his country to harm and himself to civil (and potentially criminal) liability,” and that Bolton had “likely jeopardized national security by disclosing classified information in violation of his nondisclosure agreement obligations.”

Schiff said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” that although he hasn’t read Bolton’s book, “The Room Where It Happened,” his committee would be looking in coming days at having Bolton testify.

“If you don’t act now, and you sort of wait to act and you wait to see what happens in November, is that too late?” NBC News anchor Chuck Todd asked. “If you believe he has done impeachable acts with the Chinese government, can you really wait until after the election to put Bolton under oath, to start the process?”

“I don’t think we should wait, if we conclude that there are important things he says that needs to be exposed to the public,” Schiff responded. Specifically, Schiff asserted that “those comments that the president made when only the interpreter and President Xi [Jinping] was in the room, blessing the concentration camps of the Uighurs, it’s exactly why we want to know what he said to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin when he’s alone in the room with Putin.”

[End]

So, here we have the spectacle of a pretend-journalist basically talking joint Democrat/media strategy live on national television. At least old hacks like Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw kept their collusion with the Democrats behind the scenes, most often over champagne and caviar at the home of Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee.

But Weasel Todd isn’t the only corrupt media figure campaigning for another round of bogus impeachment activities from this congress. Martha Raddatz, who always looks and sounds as if she is right on the verge of crying (what must this poor woman’s childhood have been like?) aired a part of her “exclusive” interview with the star of this new fantasy play, Ambassador Pornstache himself.

In a tweet publicizing her interview, Raddatz said, “He didn’t want to be a part of the impeachment hearing” because “he thought it was too politicized and he wouldn’t make a difference … I pushed back on him several times,” ABC News’ Martha Raddatz said Sunday of his interview with Bolton.

She pushed back on him several times, because she’s right there with Weasel Todd, pushing as hard as she can for another impeachment effort by the Democrats in the house of representatives. Meanwhile, the man with the most perpetually furrowed brow in America, CNN’s insipid Jake Tapper, did his best to get Jerry Nadler, who comically chairs the House Judiciary Committee, to commit to impeaching both President Trump and Attorney General William Barr, but the little munchkin was having none of it:

“No, we’re not interested in Bolton’s testimony,” the New York Democrat said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” After being pressed by host Jake Tapper, Nadler acknowledged that “we may, but we’ll see about that.”

and, on Barr…

“I think he deserves impeachment. He certainly deserves impeachment. But again, that’s a waste of time because the Republicans in the Senate won’t look at that and we have, we have other ways of getting at this,” Nadler said.

[End]

Nadler said that, instead of moving to impeach Barr, his committee would move to withhold $50 million in funding from the massive DOJ budget instead, which would be akin to using a BB gun to try to bring down an elephant.

All of this – every last bit of it – was classic DC Swamp Kabuki Theater, with the Democrats who will ultimately lead this next scam pretending to be reluctant to move forward as they vet the concept on national TV. They will spend this week gauging public reaction before deciding whether or not to move ahead.

Will China Collusion become the new Russia Collusion? We will know soon enough.

That is all.

Barr to Berman: You Won’t Resign? Fine. You’re Fired.

Boom, again. – This afternoon, AG William Barr sent a scalding letter to SDNY U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman, notifying him that, since he refused to gracefully resign when given a chance, he is fired. Here’s the letter:

Image

In case you can’t see the photo properly, here is the text:

I was surprised and quite disappointed by the press statement you released last night. As we discussed, I wanted the opportunity to choose a distinguished New York lawyer, Jay Clayton, to nominate as United States Attorney and was hoping for your cooperation to facilitate a smooth transition. When the Department of Justice advised the public of the President’s intent to nominate your successor, I had understood that we were in ongoing discussions concerning the possibility of your remaining in the Department or Administration in one of the other senior positions we discussed, including Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division and Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. While we advised the public that you would leave the U.S. Attorney’s office in two weeks, I still hoped that your departure could be amicable.

Unfortunately, with your statement of last night, you have chosen public spectacle over public service. Because you have declared that you have no intention of resigning, I have asked the President to remove you as of today, and he has done so. By operation of law, the Deputy United States Attorney, Audrey Strauss, will become the Acting United States Attorney, and I anticipate that she will serve in that capacity until a permanent successor is in place. See 28 U.S.C. 541(c).

To the extent that your statement reflects a misunderstanding concerning how you may be displaced, it is well-established that a court-appointed U.S. Attorney is subject to removal by the President. See United States v. Solomon, 216 F. Supp. 835, 843 (S.D.N.Y. 1963) (recognizing that the “President may, at any time, remove the judicially appointed United States Attorney”); see also United States v. Hilario, 218 F.3d 19, 27 (1st Cir. 2000) (same). Indeed, the court’s appointment power has been upheld only because the Executive retains the authority to supervise and remove the officer.

Your statement also wrongly implies that your continued tenure in the office is necessary to ensure that cases now pending in the Southern District of New York are handled appropriately. This is obviously false. I fully expect that the office will continue to handle all cases in the normal course and pursuant to the Department’s applicable standards, policies, and guidance. Going forward, if any actions or decisions are taken that office supervisors conclude are improper interference with a case, that information should be provided immediately to Michael Horowitz, the Department of Justice’s Inspector General, whom I am authorizing to review any such claim. The Inspector General’s monitoring of the situation will provide additional confidence that all cases will continue to be decided on the law and the facts.

[End]

Barr says that he asked the President to remove Berman for cause. The corrupt news media is of course spinning the story in reverse, claiming the President forced Barr to take the action. Because that’s what our corrupt news media does.

What we see here is William Barr continuing his ongoing efforts to clean the deep state skunks and snakes out of the DOJ. It’s a big and difficult job that requires a big and difficult man. As Berman is finding out the hard way, Barr fits both descriptions.

Can’t wait for the next shoe to drop in this one.

Obamagate: Barr’s Firing of Berman Removes a Roadblock from Durham’s Path

Boom. – Attorney General William Barr made another move to clear the snakes out of his Justice Department yesterday, and the snake doesn’t want to ssssssslither away.

On Friday afternoon, Barr released a statement announcing that Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman, the weasel who led several of the cases dummied up by Robert Mueller, was “stepping down,” and nominated currently the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, to replace him:

Attorney General William P. Barr has released the following statement:

“I am pleased to announce that President Trump intends to nominate Jay Clayton, currently the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, to serve as the next United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.  For the past three years, Jay has been an extraordinarily successful SEC Chairman, overseeing efforts to modernize regulation of the capital markets, protect Main Street investors, enhance American competitiveness, and address challenges ranging from cybersecurity issues to the COVID-19 pandemic.  His management experience and expertise in financial regulation give him an ideal background to lead the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, and he will be a worthy successor to the many historic figures who have held that post.  On behalf of the President, I thank Jay for accepting this nomination, and I look forward to working with him soon.

On my recommendation, the President has appointed Craig Carpenito, currently the United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey, to serve as the Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, while the Senate is considering Jay Clayton’s nomination.  This appointment will be effective July 3, and Craig will work closely with the outgoing United States Attorney to ensure a smooth transition.  I thank Craig for his continued service and for taking on this important interim responsibility.

Finally, I thank Geoffrey Berman, who is stepping down after two-and-a-half years of service as United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.  With tenacity and savvy, Geoff has done an excellent job leading one of our nation’s most significant U.S. Attorney’s Offices, achieving many successes on consequential civil and criminal matters.  I appreciate his service to the Department of Justice and our nation, and I wish him well in the future.”

[End]

A couple of hours later, Berman – an ally of the radical Lawfare crowd that is working to destroy the country via the court system – said he was refusing to step down, based on the fact that he was appointed by the judges of the SDNY U.S. district court:

So, now we see Lawfare using the courts to take away the power of the executive, a clear violation of the separation of powers that Barr and President Trump simply must not allow to stand.

The leftists in the Twitter perpetual outrage mob are all squealing that Barr’s move here amounts to a “Friday Night Massacre” and a cover-up of an array of Trump “crimes” that exist in the fantasy bubble they all inhabit. Because of course they are.

Much more likely is that Barr is removing yet another corrupt Democrat plant serving as a Deep State roadblock to the investigation being conducted by John Durham. The jettisoning of Berman comes on the heels of the forced resignations of head FBI lawyer Dana Boente and Justice Department solicitor general Noel Francisco, both Obama-era embeds who could not be trusted by Durham and Barr. Berman’s forced departure also comes after Barr has had several specially-appointed U.S. attorneys spending the last several months conducting a detailed review of his efforts on behalf of the Mueller team and its attempted coup d’etat on President Trump.

Berman obviously plans to fight his firing on behalf of this Lawfare allies.  Barr should accommodate him by starting the fight with U.S. Marshals showing up at his office door Monday morning and escorting him from the premises.

Monday News Roundup: Hollywood Tough Guy Mob, RINO Stampede and a Municipal Suicide in Minn.

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

“This the workplace, not a social justice seminar on campus.” – That’s what Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton said to Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures yesterday. He was telling her what he would say to the pathetic, childish, snowflake staff at the New York Times after they had staged a hissy-fit rebellion against the fake newspaper’s editorial page editor for publishing Cotton’s op/ed piece last Monday.

The problem with Sen. Cotton’s argument there is that today’s staff at the Times is in fact a social justice seminar. It’s just that the university campuses on which they all were brainwashed to become SJW’s have been transferred into the NYTimes Building in Manhattan. The same transition has taken place at newspapers and other media outlets all over the country, the natural progression of college learnings coming into the workplace. Why would Mr. Cotton or anyone else expect any other outcome?

The nation’s news media used to merely be biased, with its editors and reporters slanting their reporting to fit their own world view while giving a basic level of lip service to impartiality and balance. Today’s media outlets are different: They are not merely biased in what they do, they are rigidly intolerant of any viewpoint but their own.

And so it was that later in the day on Sunday, the Times announced that it had allowed editorial page editor James Bennet to “resign,” corporate speak for they fired his ass. They fired him for no valid reason and simply because their childish, brainwashed staff demanded it.

Today’s national news media is not merely biased and corrupt and 98% fake, it is actively fascist in it nature, led by the newspaper of record itself. If you trust a word they have to say without independent verification, you are part of the problem.

*sigh* Ok, so, we’re back to de-funding the police again? – We told you on Friday how the Democrats in Minneapolis – including pitiful Mayor Jacob Frey – had suddenly backed off the whole “de-fund the police” thing after Morning Consult released a poll showing just 16% support for that idiotic, society-destroying move.

But the radical leftist goons who populate the Minneapolis city council just will not be diverted from their desire to make their city ultimately look like Warsaw after Hitler’s invasion of Poland. They want the whole thing to just burn to the ground, and the first step to creating utter chaos in the streets is removing all notion of public safety.

Thus it was that yesterday afternoon, a “veto-proof majority” on the Minneapolis city council sent out this notice:

Image

If you are a law-abiding citizen in Minneapolis and you have the means to do so, you should be packing up your things and getting the hell out of there before it is too late. This is municipal suicide, plain and simple, all brought to you by your stupid, mindless votes for Democrats.

Here is the carnival freak show that is in the process of destroying a great American city:

Run to the hills! Run to the woods! The Hollywood tough guy mob is coming for you! – I swear to you that I am not making this up. This is a real, actual tweet put up by drug-addled failed actor and even more failed comedian Tom Arnold on Sunday [Language warning]:

Yes, friends and neighbors and all you other Trump supporters out here in Flyover Country where Hollywood leftists fear to tread: Tom Arnold, a 61 year-old grown man, is gonna go borrow his daddy’s rifle and come after you. And even more fearful, he’s inviting 73 year-old Rob Reiner to go borrow a rifle from his 98 year-old daddy Carl Reiner so he can join in the assault on the nation’s heartland.

Seriously, how pathetic is it to a) be 61 years-old and publicly admit that, in order to arm yourself, you have to go borrow a gun from your nonagenarian daddy, and b) to be so pathetically lacking in self-awareness that you don’t realize how silly making that public admission makes you look to the rest of the world?

You could never make these people up if they didn’t already exist. And if you still doubt me when I tell you that leftists hate you and want you dead, I really don’t know what else to tell you after this.

Speaking of ineffectual gangs, the RINOs are coming! The RINOs are coming! – The corrupt, fascist news media made a very big deal yesterday about the talk that Donald Trump will not be getting the votes in November of … wait for it … ex-President George W. Bush, Senator Mitt Romney and Colin Powell! Oh, noes! What will Trump do????

This non-story dominated the “news” all day long, despite the following facts:

  • None of these globalists supported Trump in 2016, either;
  • Romney voted to impeach the President, and we’re supposed to be surprised by this?; and
  • Colin Powell is a life-long Democrat who has never supported any Republican whose name was not Bush.

But here’s the thing: This is just the next step in the deep state propaganda campaign to throw everything against the wall at Trump and hope something sticks. This year alone, the impeachment failed to do the trick; the Wuhan Virus and its Democrat-driven shutdowns failed to do the trick; and this massive propaganda effort over the George Floyd murder is not doing the trick either.

So, yesterday’s obviously coordinated revelations among those three globalists was just the next page in the playbook. There will be something else today, and each and every day through November 3. And when Trump is re-elected, it will only become even more intense than it has been thus far.

This will never end as long as any non-deep state captive resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

And this is the Deep State’s goal:

They want you afraid. They want you unsettled. They want you to be constantly on edge. Because a fearful and cowed public is much easier to control and far more likely to be willing to surrender its rights and freedoms in exchange for a fool’s notion of “security.” The result of that poll is obviously due to all the rioting, and once the rioting goes away, the number will go away with it.

But be fully aware that these riots are not the end game for the Democrat/Deep State/Corrupt media Axis of Disinformation. Something else will be coming soon, and it will probably be even worse.

Protect yourself.

Protect your family.

Stay alert to your surroundings.

Because the next thing will inevitably come.

These people will never stop until they are stopped.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Drama Queen Generals, Northam Virtue Signals, and a Circular Commie Firing Squad

How did the U.S. military get overrun by leftists? – That’s the open question today after former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis outed himself in a histrionic anti-Trump opinion piece in the leftist rage The Atlantic. Mattis becomes just the latest in a long line of generals and admirals who have shown themselves to be dogmatic leftists over the past decade.

Much of this leftist takeover of the military upper echelons can of course be laid at the feet of Barack Obama – who also reared his annoying head yesterday – but not all of it can. Because guys like Mattis and John Kelly and H.R. McMaster and William McRaven had moved into high positions well before Obama was even elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006.

If you still doubt Mattis’s true political leanings, Lara Logan reminds us in a series of tweets about his odd behavior during the Trump Transition in 2016/early 2017:

She continues:

They were shocked by who Mattis wanted as his number 2 – he was pushing for Michelle Flournoy, the same person HRC had reportedly picked to lead DOD in her Administration, acc to sources/articles at the time, such as one Politico published in Nov 2016. They put it this way:

“THE NEXT ADMINISTRATION – HILLARY CLINTON’S HISTORY-MAKING DEFENSE SECRETARY IN WAITING”. Always wondered why Mattis would want someone like that at his side? Seems unlikely she would have been loyal to the President she would have served – was he?

Men like him knew Gen Mike Flynn was loyal to the US not Russia, yet they said nothing? As Sec Def, Mattis would have had access to all intelligence. What happened to that military code of honor in Flynn’s case? What about his Commander-in-Chief? He was silent then – but not now.

[End]

Oh.

And hey, Mattis just happens to be hawking a new book. So he’s not just a leftist, he’s a shameless self-promoting hack as well.

Good lord.

Then there is the case of current Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who went out of his way to politically undermine his Commander in Chief at a press conference on Wednesday, even as he claimed in his next breath to be non-political. Esper’s position on using the U.S. military, beyond the National Guard, to quell the rioting is certainly not unreasonable:

“The option to use active duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort, and only in the most urgent and dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now. I do not support invoking the Insurrection Act,” he told reporters.

That’s fine, and it’s an opinion shared by many. But there is a chain of command in place in our armed services that must be respected if they are to be effective fighting forces. Esper’s public remarks were decidedly political in nature and may well conflict with those of the President. That is not his role, and it was an act of insubordination. It was a purely political act, one that put the lie to Esper’s claims of being non-political and undermined his own credibility and authority.

President Trump should not tolerate it and ought to be looking for a new SecDef.

Then Esper can go write a book of his own.

Speaking of dogma… – Did you know you’re a racist if you go out and try to clean up your community after a violent riot? That’s what these three ladies discovered the hard way:

Yore attenshun puh-lease good citizens! Tha Raght Honorable Guvnah of tha Commonwealth a’ Virginia, Ralph Coonman Northam, is a-gonna do some virtue signalin’! – Ralph Northam, the racist, baby-killing fascist Democrat who still has his state in a lockdown, is going to make a grand virtue-signaling gesture this morning at a press conference in which he will announce he is removing a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

It’s his version of taking a knee.

These are not good odds. – At least 7 black people have now been killed during riots that have taken place in response to a single black person. Never forget that these riots have been organized and executed by the Democrat support groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter, and facilitated by Democrat mayors.

And now to leave you with some good news! The communist Bernie Sanders supporters have formed a circular firing squad! – Ok, it’s just on Twitter, but still, it’s always a good thing for America when the commies are fighting among themselves.

From a report at Politico:

“The left circular firing squad never rests and never misses a beat squandering an opportunity to get its head out of its ass to actually organize people outside of the cult,” said Jonathan Tasini, the author of “The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America” and a national surrogate for Sanders in 2016. “I just find it sad and head-shaking that this kind of crossfire is coming out now when the progressive movement has the opportunity to talk to millions of people.”

The skirmish began when David Sirota, Sanders’ former speechwriter, took a shot at the policy task forces that Sanders and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden created in hopes of healing party rifts. Ex-campaign manager FaizShakir and Analilia Mejia, Sanders’ former national political director, have been in talks about the endeavor with top Biden advisers Anita Dunn — who is loathed by some progressives for previously consulting with disgracedHollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein about a New York Times investigation — and Ron Klain.

“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but many of us don’t want to hear career Beltway political operatives boasting about task forces while this shit is going on right now,” Sirota tweeted. “Jfc — try to be a little less tone deaf.”

That prompted Mike Casca, Sanders’ current spokesman, to make an explosive charge shortly before 11 p.m. about a progressive newsletter Sirota currently runs, after managing a similar project on the 2020 campaign.The publication offers a paid annual subscription option at a cost of $50.

“[D]amn right,” Casca tweeted, “real change happens when you steal an email list from the campaign and use it to create your own paid newsletter. why can’t anyone see that? anyway, subscribe if you can.”

The sudden remarks exposed the deep frustration among senior Sanders staffers about some ex-aides’ second-guessing about the campaign’s mistakes. Along with Casca, Shakir hit back Tuesday at former Sanders aide Winnie Wong, who has been publicly bashing him and senior adviser Jeff Weaver for weeks over their handling of the primary and post-campaign moves.
