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.

That is all.

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.

That is all.

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.

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.

Coup Cabal Communications: The Problem Lies in What we Haven’t Seen

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Many readers will be familiar with the Twitter account called “Undercover Huber.” No idea who is behind the account, but it has been quoted and re-tweeted by all manner of public officials and media personalities like Andrew McCarthy over the past few years. It has been an excellent source of fact-based research and commentary on the Deep State’s continuing efforts to hamper President Donald Trump and remove him from office.

Undercover Huber posted an excellent thread early Sunday morning exposing the DOJ/FBI cabal not for what we have seen in the reams of their communications that have been made public, but for what we have not seen in any of those communications. It’s great food for thought, and I wanted to be sure readers here got to see it. It is reprinted below in full.

Here is the text of the remaining tweets in the thread:

We’ve now got a lot of material from Crossfire Hurricane and Mueller’s operation.

A lovers’ quarrel, classified codenames, confidential emails, vulgarity, biased texts, internal debates about FBI/DOJ strategy, media leaking and more.

But there is one thing we haven’t seen in any text, any Lync chat, any email, any document, any interview, any Congressional testimony or any report.

Not in any of the thousands upon thousands of files released.

*The words “civil rights” and any concern for them* 👈

Even the so-called “boy scout” with a conscience and head of FBI counterintelligence Bill Priestap seems like he was only concerned about setting up 30-year combat vet Flynn because “playing games” might make the “institution” of the FBI look bad & result in political blowback.

Where are the notes of FBI agents or DOJ officials saying, “gee, setting up a pretext to interview someone as part of an investigation we know is bogus might violate this persons civil rights. It might harm their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness even. Let’s rethink this.”

Where are the texts worrying about whether it is moral to try to get someone fired from the pinnacle of their career, a job as NSA in the White House, bringing their life crashing down around their ears?

Why don’t Comey’s memos about Trump asking if he can “let Flynn go” mention that the *Comey’s own FBI field office* wanted to let Flynn go a month earlier, because they had *nothing*, zero on him? Even after the plan Comey set in motion got Flynn fired in disgrace? Slip his mind?

Why is nobody writing a memo to themselves asking if they’re really doing things “by the book” when they keep sending in a spy they must know is lying to them, that they know is pals with “former” Russian intelligence chiefs, who keeps coming up empty, only with exculpatory info?

Why are there no minutes of any meeting between Comey’s crew debating whether it’s a good idea to flip a friend of George Papadopoulos, turning someone he trusted into a weapon wearing a wire against him, then suppressing that the one thing they got was yet more exculpatory info?

And when the “lead FBI attorney” on Crossfire Hurricane finds out that his prime target @carterwpage is a patriot assisting the CIA, rather than a traitor helping the Russians, why is there no email CC’d to everyone saying that, but a doctored, fraudulent one saying the opposite?

“Wow this guy was actually assisting our friends in the agency for years? He served in the military? Okay he’s got some unusual views on Russia but should I really lie to a court so I can spy on this guy, smear him in the press, destroy his business & try to throw him in prison?”

Nobody is writing that email, putting down those thoughts in notes, confiding to a close friend, sending an anguished text, worrying about what they could do to these people. Because they didn’t see them as people. Just targets to be destroyed.

But the FBI’s job isn’t to destroy people, or get them fired. It’s to investigate real crimes and protect the country. How does it “protect” the country to destabilize the presidency with a Collusion lie and deprive the intelligence community of Flynn’s renowned expertise?

Bear in mind as you read this that Comey’s crew & all the people who worked on Mueller’s team, and all of the media people who helped them are unrepentant. They don’t care.

It hurts Orange Man, so it’s all justified. They’ll destroy anyone or anything, as long as it destroys him.

Maybe Chris Wray can put some of this down in a memo and send it out on a training course. I’m sure that’ll fix this.

It’s no wonder that US Attorney John Durham is reportedly concerned that no whistleblowers have come forward.

It’s because they don’t think there is anything to blow the whistle on.

They’re all involved. Act accordingly.

/ENDS

Note: This is why it’s probably not a good idea to be demanding specific people are “locked up” or targeted for public investigation. That should only happen at the end of fair & due process. While Comey’s crew don’t think even good guys have rights, the truth is bad guys do too.

Think about it.

New Revelations in the Mike Flynn Case Prove it’s Time to Stop the Madness

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

Maria Bartiromo has good sources. – This sets her apart from Sean Hannity, Greg Jarrett and Sara Carter, the Tick-Tock brigade who have spent the last two years promising Hannity’s listeners and viewers that indictments of the bad actors in the coup cabal were always just around the corner.

Bartiromo didn’t promise that, but if you remember, she did tweet this on Sunday evening:

The case against General Flynn has not been dismissed, but so much new information has come to light since Monday that it is now blatantly obvious that he was, as his attorney Sidney Powell continues to state categorically, set up and framed by the corrupt cabal operating at the top of the DOJ and FBI in early 2017.

The latest tranche of information came yesterday in the form of previously un-released emails and hand-written notes that conclusively demonstrate that the FBI’s goal in the initial interview of Flynn was to set him up:

In a series of tweets last night, former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy points out that, even after their clear effort to entrap Flynn at that initial Jan. 27, 2017 interview, FBI agents Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka told then-Director James Comey and Dep. Director Andrew McCabe that they did not believe Flynn had lied to them, and apparently recorded that impression in their original 302 filing on the interview (which the FBI continues to claim was somehow “lost”). Comey has in fact stated this in public testimony.

McCarthy continues:

Seems worth reminding: for all the elaborate perjury trap planning, violation of protocol, and dissembling about 302 interview report, FBI did not think Flynn lied and thus never sought to charge him while Comey & McCabe in charge.

Charges were filed only months later by Team Mueller, under circumstances where there is good reason to believe they told him if he didn’t plead guilty, his son would be charged with a felony.

Judge [Emmet Sullivan] should vacate the plea and put onus on DOJ and FBI to tell us whether they’d feel good about going forward with a public trial of this case, so everything that was done and said, and why, can be laid bare. I think hell would freeze over before that. But let’s see.

[End]

As a reminder, and as the notes released yesterday confirm, the entire entrapment effort was based on a phone call that Flynn took with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the Trump Transition in December, 2016. During that call, Kislyak raised the issue of outgoing President Obama’s recent imposition of new sanctions on Russia and expulsion of many of their “diplomats” (most of whom were no doubt spies) over allegations of Russian interference in the recent elections.

On the call – which was surreptitiously and probably illegally recorded by the FBI under one of its ill-gotten FISA warrants – Flynn advised Kislyak not to get into an escalating tit-for-tat with the Obama Administration. The notes released yesterday between Strzok and Pientka [Correction: The notes appear to have actually been authored by Bill Priestap, who was Strzok’s boss at the time of the entrapment effort.] reveal their plan to not play the recording of the call for Flynn, but rather to try to entrap him in a lie. This is because they knew they did not really have a case that Flynn had violated the Logan Act, and so they hoped they could build a case that he had lied to federal investigators.

As Comey and others have stated on the public record – Comey said it under oath to a congressional committee – no one at the FBI believed at the time that Flynn had in fact lied to Strzok and Pientka. Which is why Mueller and his American Gestapo thugs ended up coercing a guilty plea out of Flynn by threatening to abuse his son.

This is what was taking place under the imprimatur of the American system of “justice” in 2016 and 2017. This is the kind of clear and repugnant abuse of power that William Barr was brought in as Attorney General to identify and remove from the system. This is the kind of despicable deception of the court and abuse of the public trust that Judge Sullivan has allowed to take place in his courtroom for years now, as General Flynn has been bankrupted and forced to sell his family home.

When is enough enough? When will someone in a position of authority finally, at long last put an end to it and let this man who served his country honorably for more than 30 years get his life back?

McCarthy lays out the obvious solution: Sullivan should allow Flynn to vacate the obviously-coerced plea, which would then allow Barr to respond by withdrawing the charges.

At that point, the punishing of the real bad actors in this case should begin in earnest.

Just as I went to post this piece, President Trump issued the following tweet:

That’s certainly true, and it is fair to note that the President himself has the power to end this ongoing travesty of justice. What’s it going to take for you to act, Mr. President?

That is all.

General Mike Flynn’s Abusers Must be Punished [UPDATED]

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

“The top of the FBI was scum…human scum.” – President Donald Trump, April 18

That they were, and with Christopher Wray in the Director’s job, apparently still are. We have known for more than two years now that the human scum at the top of the nation’s utterly corrupt highest law enforcement agency in January, 2017 framed Trump’s first National Security Advisor, General Mike Flynn, got him fired, and that Gestapo Chief Robert Mueller and his staff then bullied him into entering a guilty plea by threatening his family. That’s what we have known for all that time just through what has been available on the public record.

Thanks to the December, 2019 Horowitz Report and the margin notes and footnotes that have been declassified over the last month, we know that the human scum atop the FBI from 2015 through 2019 systematically defrauded the FISA Court through the conscious use of false information, often provided by agents of foreign governments, including Russia. And, after last week’s forced release of additional documents in the Flynn trial, we know that corrupt DOJ lawyers, acting in concert with corrupt FBI officials, withheld exonerating evidence in that trial for well over two years.

In her supplemental filing last Friday, Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell wrote, “All this new evidence, and the government has advised there is more to come, proves that the crimes were committed by the FBI officials and then the prosecutors. The government’s misconduct in this case is beyond shocking and reprehensible. It mandates dismissal.” She is a master of understatement.

If Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo is right, the dismissal of the case may be coming this week. Here’s a tweet she issued Sunday evening:

“It was all a total fraud. A set up.”

UPDATE: Here is a clip of the report Bartiromo aired on her program Monday morning (it takes a minute to load, so be patient with it):

Again, we have known these things beyond and reasonable doubt since 2018 just from what has been on the public record, yet the corrupt “human scum” within the FBI and DOJ have chosen to keep stringing this case along with unending delays and supplemental filings in a vain effort to find some graceful way out of it.

That effort hit a wall after Attorney General William Barr appointed a Missouri U.S. attorney to review the DOJ’s internal communications in the case specifically to determine whether key evidence had been withheld by DOJ employees. The release of said key evidence last Friday demonstrated that this examination had borne fruit.

Few people in American history have been as heinously abused by federal law enforcement and the U.S. court system as has General Flynn. That systemic abuse goes all the way up to the judge in the case, Federal District Judge Emmet Sullivan, who has steadfastly refused to dismiss the case even in the face of the overwhelming evidence of rank, possibly criminal misconduct by lead prosecutor Brandon Van Grack and his underlings.

Given his established pattern of working to protect the institution of the DOJ above other considerations, it is likely that Barr will try to let the case be dismissed without also punishing all the myriad bad actors involved in it, many of whom, like Van Grack, are still on his staff. That would be a malfeasance on his own part, but there is little anyone will be able to do about it. At the very least, Van Grack and every DOJ employee whose fingerprints are on this travesty of a frame-up should be fired, and Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka, the FBI agents who falsified their 302 reports from their initial interview of Flynn in January, 2017, should have the book thrown at them by John Durham.

Regardless, it will be a happy day to see General Flynn exonerated, if Bartiromo’s information is correct. Let’s pray it is, for his sake and the sake of his family.

That is all.

AG Barr Makes Most Pointed Statements yet About Spygate “Travesty”

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

The corrupt media misses the real news, as usual. – In a wide-ranging interview with Laura Ingraham to be aired on Fox News Thursday night, Attorney General William Barr slams the corrupt news media for “waging a jihad” against hydroxychloroquine simply because President Donald Trump has spoken positively about it. This is the focus of headlines about the interview by media outlets both leftist and conservative this morning.

Here is an excerpt in a Washington Times piece about Barr’s HCQ-related comments:

Attorney General William P. Barr Wednesday accused the media of attacking hydroxycholoroquine solely because President Trump has suggested it could treat the coronavirus.

“Before the president said anything about it, there was fair and balanced coverage of this very promising drug and the fact that it had such a long track record, and soon as [President Trump] said something positive about it the media has been on a jihad to discredit this drug,” Mr. Barr said in an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingharam. “It’s quite strange.”

Mr. Trump has been urging federal health officials to make hydroxycholorquine more widely available as the coronavirus spreads, but others insist there is little evidence the drug will be effective.

The WashTimes also includes this bit of truth from Barr about the corrupt media:

“I think the president went out at the beginning of this thing and was statesman-like — trying to bring people together, trying to work with all the governors, keeping his patience as he got these snarky gotcha questions from the White House media pool — and the stridency of the partisan attacks on him has gotten higher and higher and it’s disappointing to see,” he said. “The stridency of the partisan attacks and the politicization of hydroxychloroquine has been amazing to me,” he said.

[End]

Barr also made the following accurate remarks as captured in a piece by SF Gate:

“I am concerned that we not get into the business of declaring everything an emergency and then using these kinds of sweeping, extraordinary steps,” Barr said. “But given where we were back in March, I think the president made the right decision.”

Barr noted the economics of the shutdown could cost lives. For example, he said, cancer researchers were likely at home now, not doing their critical work.

“We will have a weaker health care system if we go into a deep depression,” Barr said. “So just measured in lives, the cure cannot be worse than the disease.”

[End]

These are all very good, cutting remarks that make for nice headlines that attract clicks to media web pages. But they are also not the real news in this interview, news that is not included even in the report on the interview at Fox New’s own website.

To get that, you have to go view a Twitter thread by Washington Post reporter Matt Zapotosky. Towards the end of that thread, Zapotosky quotes Barr as follows:

Why is this news? Because in the past, AG Barr has always used speculative language regarding the origins of the Spygate operation run during 2016/17 by the deep state cabal within the DOJ and the FBI. He has always used qualifiers like “I suspect” or “we need to find out” when referring to his and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into what was an outright coup d’etat effort on American soil.

To now directly call Spygate “one of the greatest travesties in American history” and to overtly state that the spying operation James Comey called “Crossfire Hurricane” was started “without any basis” and “meant to sabotage the presidency” is new, much more assertive language used by a man who is always very careful in the language he employs publicly. This is, in other words, a dramatic change in messaging.

Now, anyone can read this any way they prefer, but I read this as Mr. Barr sending a message that the Durham investigation has uncovered proof of the cabal’s seditious operations that he is willing to bring to court. He would not be making such unqualified statements of what can only be classified as treasonous actions if that were not the case.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

The Kennedy Center and the FBI: America’s Twin Towers of Disgrace

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

The damn thing should just be imploded after this. – What does one say about the people who run the Kennedy Center, other than they all need to have their sorry butts kicked? Let’s review the timeline of that national disgrace over the last 10 days:

– Nancy Pelosi single-handedly holds up a $2 Trillion stimulus bill for a week – thus delaying for a week any benefits going to ordinary people who really needed the money as fast as possible – in part so she can lard it up with a $25 million bailout for the creeps at the Kennedy Center.

– That bill finally passed early afternoon on Friday.

– About 90 minutes after it passed the House of Representatives, the Kennedy Center management sends out a memo notifying all of their contract musicians that they have been laid off.

– On Tuesday, just three days later, Kennedy Center management sends out another memo notifying all of the support staff for the National Symphony Orchestra that they have also been laid off.

This is a national disgrace, and everyone involved should be fired and replace by human beings who actually possess souls.

Meanwhile, at the FBI… – It normally takes DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz about 14 months to tie his shoelaces. This is the single most plodding, delaying, not-in-any-hurry-to-get-anything-done man in a city that is just filled with men and women with that same attitude towards their work.

Normally, nothing phases this guy. The DOJ/FBI cabal during the Obama era illegally spied on the Trump campaign and transition team? No biggie. Let’s take our sweet time looking into that one.

That same cabal frames General Mike Flynn and tries to do the same to President Donald Trump? Ah, what’s the big deal? Let’s spend 2 years looking into that one.

Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and James Comey all committed multiple counts of perjury, and Comey and McCabe were sharing national secrets with the New York Times and Washington Post? Yawn. We’ll get to that one next year.

Let’s put it this way: Mr. Horowitz does not understand the concept of swift and timely justice, nor his own role in making sure that such a thing takes place in our society. He has spent the last 3 years doing little other than gumming up the works at DOJ, doing his best to ensure the passage of time dims public memories about all the rampant corruption at that Department, especially within the FBI.

Thus, it came as a bit of surprise that Mr. Horowitz chose to rush out a new, unexpected report this week, in which he found that FBI agents of all shapes and sizes and in locations all over America casually violated the FISA law in all 29 applications his team audited from 2014 through 2019.

Every. Damn. One. Of. Them.

From a report at National Review:

The Justice Department inspector general said it does “not have confidence” in the FBI’s FISA application process following an audit that found the Bureau was not sufficiently transparent with the court in 29 applications from 2014 to 2019, all of which included “apparent errors or inadequately supported facts.”

Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a report in December which found that the FBI included “at least 17 significant errors or omissions in the Carter Page FISA applications and many errors in the Woods Procedures” during its Crossfire Hurricane investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign. After releasing the report, Horowitz said that he would conduct a further investigation to see if the errors identified in the Page application were widespread.

Horowitz’s office said in a report released Tuesday that of the 29 applications — all of which involved U.S. citizens – that were pulled from “8 FBI field offices of varying sizes,” the FBI could not find Woods Files for four of the applications, while the other 25 all had “apparent errors or inadequately supported facts.”

[End]

Note the key fact in this passage: That Horowitz’s audit included cases that were pulled from FBI field offices all over the damn country, and thus involved FBI agents of all ranks and positions.

The next time you hear the increasingly irritating Sean Hannity tell you how wonderful and non-corrupt the FBI’s “rank and file” are, turn off your radio or change channels on your television, because you are being lied to.

Attorney General William Barr naturally responded to this latest Horowitz report with a feckless, meaningless statement touting the “reforms” that worthless bureaucrat FBI Director Christopher Wray has supposedly implemented in the agency’s approach to the FISA process:

It’s important to note that the FISA law, which expired on March 15, has still not been renewed, thanks to congress’s attention being focused solely on dealing with its various stimulus bills. While AG Barr still hopes to have it renewed with no changes to the statute, this new report from Horowitz is going to make that outcome extremely unlikely to come about.

Finally, at long last, Mr. Horowitz has done a real and timely public service.

As for the FBI, the only way to really fix that steaming cesspit of corruption is to completely disband it and reconstitute a new federal investigative agency. The roots of the Bush/Obama, Mueller/Comey-era corruption there are just too firmly and deeply embedded in the muck to ever really be cleaned up.

That is all.
