DOJ/FBI Already Uncovering Democrat Voter Fraud in Pennsylvania

The U.S. Attorney’s office in Harrisburg, capitol of Pennsylvania, announced on Thursday that, working with the FBI on a tip, it had discovered a small batch of mail-in military ballots that had been discarded by election officials in Luzerne County, whose county seat is the town of Wilkes-Barre.

Not surprisingly at all, each and every one of those discarded ballots were cast for Donald Trump. Here is the statement from the DOJ:

Department of Justice
U.S. Attorney’s Office
Middle District of Pennsylvania

Statement Of U.S. Attorney Freed On Inquiry Into Reports Of Potential Issues With Mail-In Ballots

HARRISBURG – On Monday, September 21, 2020, at the request of Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis, the Office of the United States Attorney along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Scranton Resident Office, began an inquiry into reports of potential issues with a small number of mail-in ballots at the Luzerne County Board of Elections.

Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence.  Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded.   Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time.  Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot.  All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Our inquiry remains ongoing and we expect later today to share our up to date findings with officials in Luzerne County.  It is the vital duty of government to ensure that every properly cast vote is counted.

Luzerne County had long been a Democrat stronghold, voting twice for Barack Obama before shifting strongly towards Donald Trump in 2016. Lucerne County is Pennsylvania coal country, with tons of union workers and the population there is heavily Catholic, all which had traditionally been Democrat constituencies before Obama came along and began moving the Party to the radical left.

Some might say what’s the big deal – it’s just nine ballots. Note that the statement indicates that it is 9 ballots “at this time,” indicating that the investigation is still ongoing. Also note that we are very early on in the early voting process, with hundreds of thousands more votes to be cast by mail in Pennsylvania.

With the Pennsylvania courts having recently ruled that the Democrats can continue collecting ballots for days after Election Day – a decision the state GOP has appealed to the federal courts – and with millions of ballots having been mailed to people who did not request them, the state’s voting process is almost certain to be rife with fraud and abuse. What the DOJ/FBI discovered in this situation is no doubt the result of Democrat officials conducting a trial run to see what they can get away with as the process plays itself out.

The Democrat Party is mounting a highly-organized effort to steal this election. What we see here is just the tip of a very large iceberg. The good news is that William Barr’s DOJ appears intent on policing the situation.

That is all.

Barr/Durham Produce Bupkis on Spygate, but DOJ Remains Productive on Other Fronts

Just a reminder that today is the last day of summer, which represents the deadline that Attorney General William Barr set for the American public to finally see the bearing of some fruit from the John Durham investigation into Spygate and Obamagate. Barr has been non-committal about whether that fruit would come in the form of a report, or in spectacle of the unsealing of indictments and arrests of some of the players.

Obviously, Mr. Durham is not going to produce a report today or anytime soon. Any such report would have been leaked by now to the New York Times and Washington Post as the result of the sieve-like vetting process within the Department of Justice. Given the lack of any rumors flying around this morning, it is also apparent that Durham won’t be making any arrests on this particular day.

Thus, Barr’s “end of summer” deadline will pass quietly, just as all of his earlier fake deadlines passed without event. As of midnight tonight, it will be safe for us all to assume that Durham and Barr will next use the looming elections as their excuse for further delay. No word on what excuse they will come up with after President Donald Trump wins re-election on November 3, but we can be sure they’ve already thought about that.

But the Barr/Durham inaction on the coup d’etat front doesn’t mean there is nothing good happening at the Justice Department. This morning, news broke that the DOJ has now formally designated New York City, Portland and Seattle as “anarchist jurisdictions” that are now subject to revocation of billions of dollars in federal funding.

From a report at the New York Post:

New York City was among three cities labeled “anarchist jurisdictions” by the Justice Department on Sunday and targeted to lose federal money for failing to control protesters and defunding cops, The Post has learned.

Portland, Ore., and Seattle, Wash., were the other two cities on the list, which was approved by US Attorney General William Barr.

“When state and local leaders impede their own law-enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said in a statement set to be released Monday.

“We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance,’’ the AG added.

“It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.”

White House Budget Director Russ Vought is set to issue guidance to federal agencies on withdrawing funds from the cities in less than two weeks.

[End]

As noted by the Post, the DOJ action is in response to an executive order issued by President Donald Trump a few weeks ago:

The “anarchist’’ designations come after President Trump earlier this month issued a memo ordering financial retribution against cities that have been slashing their police budgets during crime waves, or tolerating violent protests sparked by the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.

At the time, New York Gov. Cuomo infamously reacted by warning Trump he should watch his step in the state. “He better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York,” the Democratic governor said. “He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City, people don’t want to have anything to do with him.”

The Big Apple made the Justice Department’s list in part because its City Council approved a budget in July that cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion annual budget — even as murders and shootings in Gotham soared.

In July, the number of shootings in New York City skyrocketed 177 percent over the same period last year, and there was a 59 percent rise in murders. In August, city shootings soared 165 percent, while murders jumped about 50 percent.

The Justice Department said it also considered the fact that at least some of the city’s district attorneys have declined to prosecute people arrested for disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly during recent protests.

[End]

So, while Barr now appears to have abandoned any effort to truly correct the two-tiered system of justice that the DC Swamp has established over the past quarter century, at least he continues to be productive in other areas.

No doubt the three cities named on Sunday will file court challenges to this DOJ action, and no doubt they will find some Obama appointee in Hawaii  or somewhere else in the 9th Circuit’s jurisdiction to issue a national injunction. But, if the President appoints and the senate confirms another constitutionalist to the Supreme court over the next 43 days, this policy will no doubt become successful and be expanded other anarchist Democrat cities like Minneapolis and Chicago.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

That is all.

Durham and Barr Snag a Small Fish in an Ocean of Coup Cabal Sharks

“That’s just the beginning, I would imagine. This… what happened should never happen again,” President Trump said at a White House briefing Friday afternoon. “You’ll be hearing more.”

Durham’s “development” was a bigger deal than Barr indicated. – The guilty plea by ex-FBI/Mueller special counsel lawyer Kevin Clinesmith was not really surprising, but it is a big deal nonetheless, as it represents the first of what will likely become a series of ObamaGate dominoes to topple in the weeks to come.

In an interview with Captain Tick-Tock, Sean Hannity Thursday, Attorney General William Barr indicated that there would be a “development” in the John Durham investigation on Friday, but that it would not be “earth-shaking.” As is generally the case with Mr. Barr, that description turned out to be 100% accurate.

Clinesmith plead guilty to “making a false statement” to DOJ investigators about having altered an email about Carter Page in a manner that changed its entire meaning. Page had told investigators was a source for the CIA, and Clinesmith altered the email to say he was “not” a CIA source in order to support an FBI application for the third FISA warrant to spy on Mr. Page, which was executed in July, 2017.

Disturbingly, Clinesmith was assigned to the FBI’s National Security Division during 2016. He is an obviously leftist radical who bragged to colleagues about having played a part in the FBI’s role in trying to tilt the election towards Hillary Clinton, and to be working to “destroy the Republic.” Following Trump’s victory in 2016, Clinesmith, identified as “Attorney 2” in the Horowitz report, had this exchange with that fellow FBI lawyer:

Attorney 2: “I am numb.”

Other employee not involved in midyear investigation: “I can’t stop crying.”

Attorney 2: “That makes me even more sad.”

Employee “Like, what happened? You promised me this wouldn’t happen. YOU PROMISED…”

Attorney 2: “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently.”

Employee: “Don’t stress. None of that mattered. The FBI’s influence.”

Attorney 2: “I don’t know. We broke the momentum.”

Employee: “That is not so….”

Attorney 2: “I’m just devastated. I can’t wait until I can leave today and just shut off the world for the next four days…I just can’t imagine the systematic disassembly of the progress we made over the last 8 years. ACA is gone. Who knows if the rhetoric about deporting people, walls and crap is true. I honestly feel like there is going to be a lot more gun issues too, the crazies won finally. This is the tea party on steroids. And the GOP is going to be lost, they have to deal with an incumbent in 4 years. We have to fight this again. Also Pence is stupid.”

Attorney 2: “And it’s just hard not to feel like the FBI caused some of this. It was razor thin in some states. Plus my god damned name is all over the legal documents investigating his staff. So who knows if that breaks to him, what he is going to do.”

[End]

Clinesmith’s obvious hatred for President Trump and the American republic obviously made him the perfect FBI lawyer to be detailed over the Mueller Special Counsel probe when it got started in May 2017, and he was in that role, working directly with lead Mueller henchman Andrew Weissman, when he altered the email in question.

It’s important to remember that Clinesmith’s wrongdoing took place on the watch of Christopher Wray, not James Comey. It also took place under the watch of Rod Rosenstein after AG Jeff Sessions had recused himself. Rosenstein and Weissman were basically running the entire Department of Justice from May, 2017 through January, 2019, when William Barr came into the AG’s job.

Clinesmith was far from the only FBI employee who was involved in the attempted coup d’etat targeting President Trump. The Horowitz report named no fewer than five such skunks who brought disgrace on themselves during this sorry episode in U.S. history.

Thus, Clinesmith’s guilty plea in and of itself was not especially earth-shaking. But the way in which its thread is likely to reverberate throughout the entire apparatus of the FBI/DOJ coup cabal that existed during 2016 and 2017 is likely to be.

It’s key to note that, in his interview with Hannity, Barr also said that Durham’s efforts would not be delayed by political considerations over the upcoming election, and that there would be more to come from him soon. As I noted above, Barr’s public statements have a way of being proven true.

Stay tuned. The fun is just beginning, and payback is going to be hell.

That is all.

William Barr Takes off the Gloves Regarding BLM

This is a big, big deal, folks. During an interview with Mark Levin aired Sunday night on Fox News, Attorney General William Barr took the gloves completely off regarding the Black Lives Matter domestic terrorist group that, along with Antifa, serves as the insurrectionist arm of the Democrat Party.

Some of Mr. Barr’s quotes appear below. Read them carefully and you will see the U.S. Attorney General speaking with perfectly clear eyes about the true nature of BLM, which is indistinguishable from its fellow Democrat-sponsored terrorist group, Antifa, as I have been pointing out to readers here for weeks now:

The United States is grappling with a new form of “urban guerrilla warfare” driven by the left’s “lust for power,” Attorney General William Barr told “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday.

Discussing the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through several U.S. cities, Barr told host Mark Levin that the organization —  which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group —  is comprised of “Bolsheviks” with a focus on on “some form of socialism, communism.”

“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic,” he said.

Barr compared the nationwide riots organized by Antifa to “a new form of urban guerrilla warfare.”

“The way the guerrilla…hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean…what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity,” he explained. “They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves. That’s where they swim. And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence.”

[End]

Now, watch as Barr links Antifa/BLM directly to their sponsors in the communist Democrat Party:

The group’s radical leanings are reflective of the Democratic party’s far-left shift in recent years, Barr said. “The left has “pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded” America and made a “secular religion” out of seeking “complete political victory,” he argued.

It began the day Trump won in 2016, “and from that point forward, there’s been the resistance,” Barr told Levin.  “They were trying to impeach him from Day One. They have done everything they can..and I think it’s because of the desire for power that the left wants.”

Power has become a “secular religion of the left,”  Barr asserted. “They want to run people’s lives so they can design utopia for all of us…and it’s the lust for power. And they weren’t expecting Trump’s victory. And it outrages them.”

[End]

Man, it’s like he’s been reading Today’s Campaign Update or something.

I mentioned this in the Monday News Roundup, but it deserves special focus: These comments and more that Mr. Barr made during his interview with Levin are not normal. They are not the ordinary, scripted talking points you see attorneys general roll out in the normal course of their daily business. AGs are normally careful not to offend the opposition party in congress, especially when it controls a majority of the House of Representatives and thus the DOJ budget.

Barr’s remarks here are essentially a notice to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden’s elder-abusing handlers that the gloves are now off. No more playing by the Marquess of Queensbury rules in which one punch is politely exchanged for another. Barr’s rhetoric signals that he’s now going into cage match mode.

It is also important to note the implications of Barr’s truth-telling about BLM as it relates the pro sports and entertainment industry. Barr’s equation of BLM with Antifa is a de facto declaration that he considers BLM a domestic terrorist organization, as he does Antifa.

This would be the very same BLM group whose logo now appears on NBA uniforms and courts; the same BLM group whose logo appears on Major League Baseball uniform jerseys; the same BLM group whose logos will appear on NFL uniforms this fall unless something changes. It is the very same BLM group to which everyone in Hollywood and the news media has genuflected and declared their undying fealty.

This is a big, big deal. Let’s hope we don’t see any “clarifying statements” from DOJ today trying to walk any of it back. BLM/Antifa and their communist Democrat sponsors are direct threats to our nation’s survival, and it is impossible to defeat an enemy unless you can first properly identify them with clear, focused eyes.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: Portland Rioting Spreads to Seattle and Chicago and William Barr Slams the Left

Talk about a lack of self-awareness… – Watch below as Brian Stelter proves that he is in fact the single most clueless individual working in the corrupt news media today:

Obviously, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, CBS, ABC and NBC have all existed for the last 5 years solely to tear down Donald Trump. Yes, they have been miserable failures in that pursuit, but the effort has been ubiquitous and undeniable.

If Brian Stelter did not already exist, no one in their right mind could ever dream of making him up.

This happened on Sunday… – Lindsey Graham appeared on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo yesterday, waving around newly declassifed documents and claiming they show “new criminality” on the part of the FBI:

In rolling out these newly-declassified documents, Graham told Bartiromo that he had been trying to obtain them from the FBI “for two years,” and he thanked Attorney General William Barr for helping him bust them loose from the FBI’s grip. Notably, he did not also thank Christopher Wray.

Just as a reminder, the Director of the FBI for the last two years has not been James Comey, but the worthless apparatchik Mr. Wray. Sen. Graham said he was going to “write a letter” to Wray demanding he identify the person within the FBI who gave the Senate Intel Committee this utterly false briefing about the veracity of the Steele Dossier. Maybe he’ll get an answer sometime in 2022.

Maybe.

You should get ready for a very, very interesting week. – Yes, every week is “interesting” these days, but I’m guessing that this particular week is going to be more interesting than most. Obviously we will see a week-long conflict between the Trump Administration and congress over the President’s weekend executive orders, as well as lawsuits being filed against those orders by communist Democrat interests before friendly Obama judges.

But I think it’s going to get much more interesting than that. Here is one reason why: Attorney General William Barr appeared last night with Mark Levin on Fox News, and made his most inflammatory remarks yet about the communist Democrats and the political left in general.

Here are some quotes from a piece at Fox News:

“They’re not interested in compromise,” Barr told host Mark Levin. “They’re not interested in [a] dialectic exchange of views. They’re interested in total victory … It’s a substitute for religion.

“They view their political opponents as evil because we stand in the way of their progressive utopia that they’re trying to reach, and that’s what gives the intensity to the partisan feelings that people feel today, because for them, this pilgrimage we’re all on is a political pilgrimage. Everything is reduced to politics for people who don’t have that perspective.”

Barr theorized that the left “really represents a Rousseauian Revolutionary Party that believes in tearing down the system, that what’s wrong about America today all has to do with the institutions we have and we have to tear them down.”

“I said during my hearing: ‘Can any of you just come out and say it’s not OK to burn down federal courthouses?’ I mean, they talk about the rule of law. They talk about the importance of the federal legal system to protection of civil rights. Well, the heart of that is our court system. And they’re not willing, not one of them piped up to say, ‘No, it’s not OK to be burning down federal courts.'”

A few Democratic lawmakers, Barr suggested, “are true believers” who are “essentially revolutionary in their outlook” and “believe in tearing down the system.

“But many of them are just cowards   and are afraid from, you know, about a challenge from the left. So for them, it’s careerism.”

[End]

These are not the comments from an Attorney General who is interested in working cooperatively with Democrats in congress and outside of it. These are the comments of an Attorney General who is now on a war footing and is ready to take it to an enemy.

Glad to see it.

Welcome to the party, Pal. – Also of note is this series of tweets from GOP Sen. Ron Johson, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Take a look:

Hey, does it seem to you as if Sen. Johnson might have finally woken up and realized that the true enemy to the United States of America is not some external threat like China or Russia, but the communist Democrat Party right here in the U.S.? Does it seem like maybe, just maybe, Sen. Johnson is finally ready to quit referring to seditious scumbags like Richard Blumenthal as his “friend” or “colleague”?

Because it sure seems that way to me.

This week is going to be very, very interesting.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The revolving door continues in Portland, as even the most violent Antifa/BLM Democrat sponsored rioters are arrested and then immediately released to go back on the streets thanks a huge fund providing pro bono legal support:

Ngo continues to blame all of this on Antifa, but note the BLM clenched fist on the sign that appears in this video:

Again, it is completely wrong to draw a distinction between Antifa and BLM. Both are Marxist, Soros-funded domestic terrorist groups that are sponsored by the Democrat Party. Both will ultimately have to be dealt with very violently or this chaos will only continue to grow.

In fact, it’s already escalating again. Emboldened by the fact that the communist Democrats in Oregon refuse to deal effectively with the Portland rioters, Ngo notes that fellow terrorists in Seattle and Chicago are ramping up the violence in those cities now:

None of this is really complicated, folks. We simply must as a society identify who and what these terrorists are with clear eyes and deal with them as we have dealt with radical Islamic terrorists for the last 20 years. If we don’t, then they will win. It really is that simple.

By the way, have you noticed that you have not heard a word about any Islamic terrorist activity in the U.S. since these Antifa/BLM riots got started? Ask yourself why that would be the case. The logical answer is kind of frightening.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: 9th Circuit Clownshow, DOJ Moves on Google, More BLM Terrorism

The 9th Circuit once again beclowns itself. – A 3 judge panel of the leftist 9th Circuit Court of Appeals proved that court to be the patron judicial saint of lost causes yet again on Friday, ruling that President Trump’s use of Pentagon funds to build the border wall is somehow unconstitutional. It isn’t.

This ruling is even more clownish than usual for the 9th Circuit, given that the Supreme Court of the United States already ruled on this same question last July. So this decision is not only wrong, it has already effectively been overturned. The circuit court judges who voted in favor of even hearing this case should be held personally responsible for reimbursing the government’s costs related to it. This is judicial malpractice, which has become an epidemic in this country over the last 3-1/2 years.

News you won’t see reported on CNN. – Readers here will know that I have repeatedly written about the need for the U.S. Department of Justice to pursue anti-trust charges against Google, Twitter, Facebook and the other big tech monopolies, who are the modern-day version of Standard Oil. During the leadup to the 2018 elections, when it had become apparent that the Democrats would likely win control of the House, I even urged President Trump to make trust-busting a major focus of his second two years in office.

Well, here we are, less than 5 months until Election Day, and it appears to the Department of Justice is finally getting around to doing something here.

From a report at Politico:

Justice Department prosecutors expect to file an antitrust lawsuit against Google in the coming months focused on the company’s dominance in online advertising and search, two individuals familiar with the discussions said Friday.

DOJ lawyers and state antitrust officials met online Friday and discussed contours of the expected complaint, according to the people, who weren’t authorized to speak on the record because the investigation is ongoing. People knowledgeable about the case had previously described litigation as likely.

The suit is expected to involve allegations that the search giant has monopolized the advertising technology market. It is also expected to include allegations that Google has taken steps to extend its monopoly over search, such as through contracts with Apple and cellphone makers who use the Android operating system that require it be the default search engine.

The people cautioned that Attorney General William Barr, who did not attend the meeting, has yet to make a final decision on whether to sue, a judgment he could make in the coming weeks. The department would also need to decide what remedy it would seek, such as trying to break up the company or placing limits on its behavior. Whether the state attorneys general would also sign on to the DOJ complaint isn’t yet determined.

[End]

It’s very late in the game, but hey, better late than never. The problem here is exactly the same we see with the John Durham investigation still sitting out there with zero people indicted: If the presidential election goes the wrong way, any investigation into Google that has failed to produce a lawsuit by November will be immediately dropped by a Biden administration and whatever corrupt hack he names as his attorney general. A case already moving through the courts would be far harder for an incoming administration to justify ending.

Why you need to stay aware of your surroundings when out in public. – It’s becoming increasingly apparent that the domestic terrorist group Black Lives Matter is now systematically having its activists assault random white people in public. We’ve all seen the video of the 93 year-old woman who was assaulted on the street in New York last week, and yesterday we have this from Michigan:

Michigan authorities have charged an 18-year-old black man for the “unprovoked,” caught-on-video assault of a white Macy’s manager, officials said.

Damire Palmer, of Mount Morris Township, faces one count of felony assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder for the June 26 attack on the employee inside the Flint department store. Palmer is still in the wind.

“This was an unprovoked attack on a Macy’s employee,” said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton in a statement. “This behavior as seen on the video is unacceptable, it is criminal, and it cannot be allowed.”

Contrary to initial claims, police and prosecutors didn’t uncover any evidence that Palmer assaulted the staffer after he’d allegedly used the N-word, officials said.

“We don’t believe any racial slur was made by the store manager,” Leyton said.

In surveillance video that prosecutors obtained from Macy’s, Palmer walks around the store then approaches the manager from behind and clocks him in the head, knocking him to the floor, officials said.

[End]

This is a classic terror tactic BLM has used in the past and the group has now obviously decided to reactivate that particular program, which it has referred to in the past as “Operation Polar Bear.”

Keep your head on a swivel and protect your loved ones. These people are trained Marxist thugs, and this is what they do.

John Bolton Might Become William Barr’s First High-Profile Criminal Indictment

Former National Security Advisor/UN Ambassador John Bolton and his publisher, Simon and Schuster, apparently attempted to cut the Department of Justice off at the pass today by releasing Bolton’s book to the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and other media outlets.

The DOJ filed suit in federal court on Tuesday asking for a restraining order against the book’s publication, claiming that it is chock-full of classified information. On Wednesday, the WSJ, the Post and other media outlets somehow all had conveniently obtained copies of the book and are publishing a raft of stories based on Bolton’s allegations against President Trump.

So the Wuhan Virus has basically lost the public’s attention, the riots have run their course for the most part, and the Deep State needed another means of trying to bring down the President. Enter Ambassador Pornstache.

The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday that prosecutors within the DOJ are now having “high-level discussions” about whether or not to file criminal charges against Bolton, and that those discussions apparently go all the way up to Attorney General William Barr.

From the LA Times piece:

Federal prosecutors are weighing whether to criminally charge John Bolton with disclosing classified information in his upcoming White House memoir, and the Justice Department is expected in coming days to ramp up its legal campaign to block publication of a book that is being billed as a scathing rebuke of President Trump, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Justice Department is expected to seek a temporary restraining order from a federal judge as soon as Wednesday that would block Bolton and his publisher, Simon & Schuster, from releasing the memoir as planned on June 23, the people said. It is not clear how successful such a legal fight would be. On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal published a lengthy excerpt of the book. It is also in the hands of journalists who have begun to chronicle its findings in stories.

Nevertheless, such a legal maneuver would amp up the fight begun Tuesday when the Justice Department filed a lawsuit asking a federal judge to order Bolton to halt the release of “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” pending the conclusion of a prepublication scrub of the manuscript for classified information.

The suit alleges that Bolton is in breach of nondisclosure agreements that required such a review and clearance by the National Security Council before he can publish a book.

The Justice Department described the book as a “500-plus page” tome “rife with classified information.” The internal discussion about whether to charge Bolton with releasing classified information are occurring at the highest levels of the Justice Department and involve Atty. Gen. William Barr, the person said.

[End]

As you absorb what will certainly be days of wild reporting based on this book, you would do well to remember that Mr. Bolton is the same guy who didn’t want to offer testimony during the Democrats’ sham impeachment hearings that held the nation hostage last fall and winter. Because, see, when you offer testimony to congress, you have to do it while under oath and potential perjury charges.

But in a gossip tell-all book published by reliable deep state tool Simon and Schuster, you can just toss out whatever you want without worrying about perjury, so long as you have sign-off from DOJ and the National Security Council that your book doesn’t illegally reveal classified information. Bolton obviously thought about the perjury deal, but for whatever reason decided to challenge the Trump Administration on the classified information part.

Wouldn’t it be fun if, after all of the hype about the Durham investigation, Ambassador Pornstache became William Barr’s first big-time indictment?

The fun never ends around here.

Wednesday News Roundup: Google Monopoly, CHOP Follies, Bolton Sued and More

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The markets boomed on Tuesday, with the Dow shooting up by more than 500 points and the NASDAQ approaching 10,000 again at the close. The news that retail sales for May had rocketed up by an all-time record 17.7% (as opposed to an “expert” projection of 8%) provided the main impetus for yesterday’s gains, Democrat/Media panic porn over the coronavirus notwithstanding.

Futures point to a higher opening again today, as the markets continue to try to climb back from their big losses of last Thursday.

In case you missed it… – Comcast/NBC News and Google conspired yesterday to de-platform two conservative news sites, The Federalist and ZeroHedge, in about the clearest example of monopolistic behavior one could ever witness. You can read all about it at yesterday’s Evening Campaign Update.

In his opening monologue last night, Tucker Carlson discussed the obvious dangers of the Department of Justice and Congress sitting by and doing nothing as one company – Google – controls more than 70% of all online advertising cash flow:

It is beyond any question that Google today is exactly what Standard Oil was 120 years ago: A blatant monopoly that engages in restraint of trade and other unfair business practices against its competitors and others – like The Federalist and ZeroHedge – that it does not approve of. If the federal government cannot summon the integrity and political will to properly regulate and break up Google – just as it did with AT&T in the 1980s and 1990s – then congress should just repeal the anti-trust laws and drop all pretense of the existence of a fair and competitive marketplace.

It’s a start. – As expected, President Donald Trump signed an executive order on policing reforms at a White House ceremony on Tuesday.

Axios provides a succinct summary of the Order’s main provisions:

The big picture: Under the order, police departments that meet certain standards, outlined by the Justice Department, on use of force will be given access to federal grants, a senior administration official said on a call with reporters on Monday.

  • Departments must ban the use of chokeholds to receive such certification, unless an officer is targeted by deadly force.
  • The order also moves to create a national registry to track police officers with multiple instances of the use of excessive force.
  • The order also includes new programs that would help law enforcement officials better deal with mental illness, homelessness, and addiction — including encouraging departments to involve mental health professionals and social workers to work alongside officers in the field.

Worth noting: The order does not address larger concerns about systemic racism and racial profiling in law enforcement.

  • “I strongly oppose the radical and dangerous efforts to defund, dismantle and dissolve our police departments. … Americans know the truth: Without police, there is chaos. Without law, there is anarchy,” Trump said.

Democrats naturally were entirely negative about the order, refusing to give the President any credit for all the many actions he has taken during his presidency to improve lives in Black communities around the country. A great example came when Bret Baier interviewed South Carolina Cong. James Clyburn on his show last night. Watch as Clyburn lies through his teeth in order to avoid saying anything positive about the President or this EO:

Such despicable people.

From our “You Just Cannot Make This Stuff Up” files…. – Rather than enforcing the law over the multiple obvious felonies that have been committed by the radical Antifa activists who created it, the City of Seattle’s government continues to treat the CHOP as if it is a legitimate autonomous country and is now even negotiating deals with those same activists.

Yesterday, the City went to great expense to remove the graffiti-smeared temporary barriers to entry and egress the activists had set up, replacing them with costly concrete barriers designed to ensure no vehicles can enter the area:

Is the 'CHOP' here to stay? City adds concrete barriers to ...

I guess the city’s despicable Mayor and city council members look at this as a civic beautification project. in exchange for the fancy new barriers, the Antifa activists agreed to reduce the size of their stolen territory from 6 square city blocks to 3, but the remaining territory still encompasses the Seattle PD’s 3rd Precinct building.

Pathetic.

Just for fun, Tucker Carlson gave his viewers a look at life inside the CHOP on his show last night. It is exactly what you would expect when a bunch of 20-something nerds who have never had a productive moment in their lives take charge:

DOJ sues John Bolton, aka, Trump’s Biggest Mistake. – Former National Security Advisor John Bolton is back in the news, once again for bad reasons. The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against the 1970s pornstache-sporting gadfly in an effort to block publication of his new tell-all gossip book because it very predictably contains classified information, which publisher Simon and Schuster refuses to remove.

From a report at Fox News:

The complaint argues that Bolton submitted his book, “The Room Where It Happened,” for publication without first getting permission from the government through the prepublication review process and that the book contains classified information.

The Justice Department wants the court to issue an order to Bolton “to notify his publisher that he was not authorized to disclose ‘The Room Where It Happened’ because he has not completed prepublication review and because it contains classified information” and for his publisher to delay the release of the book. The book is scheduled to hit shelves next week.

Bolton attorney Charles Cooper responded Tuesday night: “We are reviewing the government’s complaint, and will respond in due course.”

The Trump administration has long contended that a manuscript of Bolton’s memoir contained classified information, but that the way the material was woven into the narrative would make a traditional “scrub” impossible.

Sources told Fox News the classified information was “part and parcel” of the entire storyline.

[End]

So, here we see the DC Swamp/Deep State in action: John Bolton, a lifelong Swamp snake and ostensible Republican attempting to publish a book whose clear goal is to help the Democrats and their addled presumptive nominee, Joe Biden, win the 2020 elections.

We should also remember the fact that Bolton played a big role in helping Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan dummy up the false narrative they used to hold the country hostage for 6 months last fall and winter while they pushed their sham impeachment. Bolton is just Mitt Romney with a really bad haircut, stupid-looking mustache and ill-fitting suits.

That is all.

William Barr Fires Dana Boente, Identifies Antifa as Riot Organizers

The Evening Campaign Update

William Barr’s big adventure took two huge steps on Saturday.

First, Attorney General Barr went out of his way to call out the domestic terrorist and Democrat support group Antifa as one of the main organizers behind the nationwide set of riots happening in Democrat-controlled big cities this weekend. He also took great pains to note that the crossing of state lines to organize or participate in riots is a federal crime.

Here’s an outtake from his speech:

Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda.

In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized, and driven by anarchistic and far left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics, many of whom travel from out of state to promote the violence.

We must have law and order on our streets and in our communities, and it is the responsibility of the local and state leadership, in the first instance, to halt this violence. The Department of Justice (including the FBI, Marshals, ATF, and DEA), and all of our 93 U.S. Attorneys across the country, will support these local efforts and take all action necessary to enforce federal law.

In that regard, it is a federal crime to cross state lines or to use interstate facilities to incite or participate in violent rioting. We will enforce these laws.”

[End]

Boom. Obviously, Mr. Barr has intelligence showing that Antifa is behind this violence and mayhem, just as I speculated in this morning’s Campaign Update. Barr’s speech today was obviously a stage-setter for action to come.

Second came the news mid-afternoon that the FBI’s top lawyer, the corrupt clown Dana Boente – who was hand-picked for the job by Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray – was allowed to “resign” his position on Friday rather than suffer the indignity of an outright firing. In it’s fake report on the matter, NBC News hilariously attempts to tie the firing to recent criticism Boente had received on Fox News for his role in the framing of General Michael Flynn, a role that included withholding exculpatory documents from Flynn’s defense team.

The fact of the matter here is that Boente has been a bad actor for a long, long time and should have never been given any position within the Trump Administration. The fact that he has held multiple positions within the DOJ since 2017 is a testament to how poorly managed and corrupt the institution has remained, although it certainly does appear to be suddenly making strides under Barr’s leadership.

Of special note here is that the firing of Boente was ordered by Barr and the DOJ, in the process going right over the head of the worthless, corrupt FBI Director Wray. This is a show of incredible disrespect, one that Wray has richly earned.

No one should be the least bit surprised if Wray’s is the next head on the chopping block, since there is literally no one in Washington, DC who has the slightest respect for the way he has handled his job. The firing of Boente also leaves Wray without many, if any, real friends within the Bureau’s top management. Anyone who has ever been in upper management in any organization knows how crucial it is to have a loyal support group around you.

With Ric Grenell currently out of government, I continue to hold out hope that Barr and President Donald Trump will find a new senior position for him to fill. Sure would be nice to have a vacancy atop the FBI to plug him into, wouldn’t it?

Of course, Grenell could never be confirmed to the FBI Director job by the current Senate. But, as we have seen over the last three months, this is a guy who can accomplish a hell of a lot in a 180-day assignment in an “acting” role.

Go for it, Mr. President. As you love to say, what have you got to lose?

That is all.
