Devin Nunes Drops Another Bomb, and It’s a Big One

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, here’s how our fake national news media justifies what it does:

  • Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday that the Obama Administration’s fake “counterintelligence” investigation into the Trump campaign was started in early 2016 “with no official intelligence” as its basis.
  • Other than Fox and a handful of conservative news outlets, no media outlet has reported this incredible, bombshell news, which means that the investigation was illegal from the outset.
  • The fake news media outlets refusing to cover this story claim that it’s all Nunes’ fault, because he has destroyed his own credibility with the fake news media.
  • Why is that the case?  Because Nunes has spent the last 13 months uncovering the truth about the Trump/Russia Collusion fantasy play that has been mounted by the Democrat party in direct coordination with those same fake news media players.
  • Because of that, the fake news media identified Nunes as a threat, and has mounted an intense character assassination campaign against him.

See how that works?  The media identifies a threat to their narrative, colludes with Democrats like bug-eyed Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, to demonize that threat, claims that threat has lost his credibility as a result of the demonization campaign, and then proceeds to ignore everything he says on the grounds of the lost credibility.  A textbook display of a Saul Alinsky character assassination campaign.

In all seriousness, the revelation by Nunes is incredible in its potential ramifications, and it can’t just be wished away no matter how hard the fake media tries.  The FBI and intelligence community currently claim that the origin for its counterintelligence operation against the Trump Campaign was a conversation that a pathetic minor hanger-on named George Papadopolous had with an Australian diplomat.  If that is true – which is highly suspect – then that bit of intelligence should have been communicated through the so-called “Five Eyes” agreement between the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK, a deal that ensures these five allies do not spy on one another’s citizens without everyone knowing about it.

Nunes, as Chairman of the House Intel Committee, is privy to such Five Eyes communications, so is obviously in a position to know.  Obama CIA Director John Brennan testified to congress last May that he directly communicated the intelligence he had accumulated as of October 2016 to then-FBI Director James Comey, and also briefed key members of congress at the same time.

Unfortunately for Brennan, last week the FBI, after months of stonewalling, released the original electronic communications documents  that led to the creation of its counterintelligence investigation, and those documents, according to Nunes, reveal that that intelligence that Brennan passed to Comey did not come through official channels.  Nunes told Bartiromo the following:

Nunes doesn’t know whether the former secretary of state and then-Democratic challenger to Trump in the election, Hillary Clinton, was pulling the strings of the investigation launched against her political opponent. However, he said it is known that two long-time Clinton associates – including Sidney Blumenthal – were “actively” giving information to the State Department, which “was somehow making its way to the FBI.”

So, what all this means is that it is very likely that the CIA, under Brennan’s leadership, had been conducting illegal surveillance on the Trump Campaign long before the FBI had ever obtained a FISA warrant authorizing such activity against U.S. citizens, and that associates of the Pantsuit Princess were feeding the State Department information from the fake Trump Dossier that the DNC and Clinton Campaign had spent millions of dollars having compiled.  That information was then being fed by the State Department to Brennan, and Brennan was then passing it through to Comey.  Breathtaking.

This explains why Nunes and his committee are still working on a report on its findings related to the State Department’s involvement in the illegal spying on the Trump Campaign.  We also should remember here that we have evidence, in the form of texts between disgraced deep state FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his mistress, DOJ lawyer Lisa Page, that President Obama himself was aware of all of this as early as September 2016.  In that month, Strzok texted Page that Obama had  requested a briefing “on everything we are doing.”

This is the single biggest scandal in American history, and our fake news media is so blinded by its collective hatred for Donald Trump and its overwhelming general political bias that it is not just missing the story, it is intentionally ignoring it in the hopes that pretending that the facts don’t exist will somehow make them go away.

But facts are stubborn things, as Ronald Reagan famously said, and you can’t just wish them away.

Just another day in the truth is coming slowly but surely America.

That is all.

Jeff Sessions Just Ran Out of Cover in the Andrew McCabe Case

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, now we know why Andrew McCabe needed that half million dollar legal defense fund.  The fired ex-Deputy Director of the FBI is really on a roll when it comes to having criminal referrals filed against him:  Yesterday, he gets one from 11 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, and today he gets one lobbed out in his direction by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

Bang!  Boom!  Pow!  It’s like he’s playing a bad guy in an episode of the 1960s TV version of Batman.

The IG’s referral is of course a follow-up to the release of his report last Friday which summarized the findings from his investigation into McCabe’s conduct, which showed that the deep state FBI guy had a serial “lack of candor,” i.e., he’s an habitual liar.

In truth, as I detailed in this morning’s Campaign Update, the referral from 11 Republican congresspersons carries little weight, and really covers ground Attorney General Jeff Sessions has already claimed to be covering.  But the referral from the IG is more crucial here, because it now leaves Sessions completely exposed, lacking any further excuse for delaying moving forward with prosecuting the guy who was one of the ring leaders of the anti-Trump deep state cabal that operated within the FBI and DOJ throughout 2016 and well into 2017.

Sessions has said all along that he has just been awaiting the IG’s report before determining whether prosecutions of anyone are really warranted in these matters.  Now, the IG has not just issued a report specific to one of the bad actors, he has quickly followed up with a criminal referral.  While that referral is directed to the U.S. Attorney who oversees the Washington, D.C. office for DOJ, that U.S. Attorney works for Jeff Sessions, and his actions are Sessions’ responsibility.

A referral from the IG does not necessarily mean that charges will be brought in the case – that decision falls to the DOJ and a grand jury.  But the IG has already presented an airtight case in a very public way, so if Sessions and his U.S. attorney fail to bring charges, they’ll need a very strong explanation why General Mike Flynn, a legitimate American hero who has spent his entire adult life defending this country, gets perp walked and indicted in a massive rush to judgment, but a deep state skunk like McCabe gets a walk after a painstaking investigation that dragged on for many months.

The other thing the IG’s action today accomplishes is to give us a preview of what to expect in May, when he will issue his findings from his more comprehensive, 15-month investigation into the massive wrongdoings by a variety of FBI and DOJ officials, as well as Hillary Clinton.  It should be fairly safe to assume the general process will be the same – first, the report, then a series of criminal referrals to DOJ.

And then the buck stops again right smack in the middle of Jeff Sessions’ desk.  Personally, I think that’s exactly where Sessions wants it.  But if I’m wrong in the assumption of Sessions’ good faith, he’s about to run out of anywhere else to pass that buck.

That is all.

In Three Weeks, America Will Find Out Who Jeff Sessions Really Is

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Florida Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis, along with 10 other GOP members of the House, sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday, detailing formal criminal referrals against James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch and Andrew McCabe.  While Sean Hannity and other conservative radio and TV talk show hosts played the letter up as if it is a momentous event, the truth is that it makes referrals that are already being acted upon by the Attorney General.

Sessions has already and repeatedly made it clear that he will act on these referrals and other potential criminal activity by former Obama officials after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz issues his final report detailing the findings from his 15 month-long investigation into potential criminal wrongdoing by deep state DOJ and FBI personnel during the 2016 election campaign.  That investigation also covers the FBI/DOJ handling of its sham investigation into the Clinton email scandal, and thus impacts every one of the Obama-era officials named in the DeSantis letter.

Here are some things we already know about all of this:

  • We know that the referral on McCabe is redundant at best, since it is related to the same claims of criminal wrongdoing that got McCabe fired in the first place, and the proof of which were detailed in the report issued by IG Horowitz specific to McCabe’s actions late last week.
  • We know without any doubt at all that the referral against the Pantsuit Princess, that she violated campaign finance law by failing to disclose the millions of dollars her campaign spent to fund the fake Trump Dossier, is valid and ought to be prosecuted by DOJ, if there is any such thing as equal treatment under the law in this country.
  • We know without any doubt at all that the referral against Comey, relating to his leaks of classified information contained in his memos to the New York Times is absolutely true, and ought to be prosecuted by DOJ.
  • We know without any doubt at all that the referral against Lynch, relating to her well-document threats of reprisal against a key witness in the Uranium One case, is absolutely valid and ought to be prosecuted by DOJ.
  • Finally, we know that Attorney General Sessions has appointed his U.S. Attorney in Salt Lake City, John Huber, to lead DOJ’s handling of all of these cases and more, and we know that Mr. Huber has been working on this assignment since at least last October, and possibly since July of last year.  We also know that he has had a grand jury convened for months now, and has been working in concert with IG Horowitz and his team of more than 700 investigators.

So what’s the point?  The point is that, while the DeSantis letter amounts to a bit of political grandstanding, it is not meaningless.  Every charge made in it is clearly valid, and the validity of every criminal act alleged in it is well-documented by now in the public record.

Sessions has been well aware of all of these things and much more for many months now.  He claims to have had Huber leading the DOJ charge to determine who will be prosecuted and on what charges.  Horowitz has informed congress that he plans to issue his final report in May, and is in fact scheduled to offer testimony related to that report before Trey Gowdy and the House Oversight Committee on May 8.  That would indicate that Gowdy has information that the Horowitz report will have been issued by that time.

May 8 is about three weeks from today.  Assuming all goes as scheduled, we will by that time finally have a clear answer to the question of whether Mr. Sessions is a real attorney general who is truly intent upon restoring the rule of law in this country after the previous eight years of abject corruption, or if he is just another deep state actor intent on preserving the status quo.

My bet is that we will find out that Mr. Sessions is a real attorney general, if only because the alternative is too horrible to contemplate.

Interestingly, when Mr. Horowitz offered testimony on unrelated matters before Gowdy’s committee on Wednesday, it was obvious that the ranking Democrat, Gerry Connelly, believes Horowitz’s report will be quite damaging to Democrats.  Connelly focused his questioning in a way that tried to portray Horowitz – who was hired into his job by Barack Obama – as a Republican partisan in an effort to start laying the groundwork for what will be the obvious initial Democrat/fake news media tactic after the IG’s report comes out.

Connelly thinks Sessions is a real attorney general, too.  If he didn’t, he wouldn’t feel the need to demonize Mr. Horowitz.  You should expect to see negative stories about Horowitz to start popping up in the various fake news media outlets in the coming days as well, as the fake journalists ramp up their demonization campaign in earnest.

Just another day in the Horowitz Report is coming America.

That is all.

Comey’s Utter Lack of Any “Higher Loyalty” Irrevocably Changed American History

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Former FBI Director James Comey thinks Donald Trump is “morally unfit” to be president.  In other news, Carrie Underwood made a fabulous comeback appearance on the American Country Music Awards program, and the “Big Sexy”, 44 year-old, 285 lb. Bartolo Colon, tossed a perfect game through 7 innings against the world champion Houston Astros before finally giving up a walk and a hit in the 8th inning of the Texas Rangers’ 3-1 victory.

Thus, Sunday night featured two tremendous performers showing the world they still have what it takes to thrill their fans, and a 6’8″ petulant drama queen lashing out at the guy who fired him, in the process proving conclusively that he, more than almost anyone else in America, just needed firing.

James Comey is a truly tragic figure in American history.

The tragedy of James Comey is one of lost opportunity, one that dates back to July 5, 2016.  That was the day on which, after spending 30 minutes on national television listing all the ways in which she had violated federal law and mishandled classified information, Comey announced to the nation that he would not be making a criminal referral in the Hillary Clinton email case.

 

On that day, he and he alone had the chance to demonstrate that one of the foundational principles of the American experiment still applies.   That foundational principle is that we are a country in which all people are indeed created equal. That this is a country that has no ruling class. That this is a nation of laws, not of men, and that the laws that apply to the lowest among us apply equally to those who attain the highest public status.

James Comey could have become a true American hero that day by showing that this principle still applies in our society. Because he lacked the character and the courage to do so, he demonstrated, perhaps irrevocably, that the opposite was now true in Barack Obama’s fundamentally transformed America. We do now have a ruling class; we are no longer a nation of laws, but a nation of men; the law truly does apply differently to different people depending entirely on their class and political power.

 

Everything we have experienced as a country since has flowed directly from the cowardly act Comey committed on that day.  Think of what he could have saved us as a country had he truly possessed the “higher loyalty” to the rule of law that he claims in his book.

 

Hillary Clinton’s campaign would have been dead in the water – even though an utterly corrupt Loretta Lynch would have no doubt refused to prosecute her, the Democrat Party would have had little choice to use its convention to select someone else to carry its banner into the general election against Mr. Trump, most likely turning to Joe Biden.  The entire course of American history would have been different.

We have to remember that, despite the laughable claims that the FBI initiated its counter-intelligence investigation into the Trump Campaign because of a drunken conversation the pathetic hanger-on George Papadopolous had with some guy in Australia, the truth is that it was germinated by the fake Trump Dossier, which had been funded by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC, which the Clinton Campaign then controlled.

The entire Trump/Russia collusion fantasy play flows from that dossier, and the frantic decision by the Clinton machine on the day after the election to push that fantasy as the real reason she lost the election.  That decision, and the cooperation with it by the Obama FBI and DOJ – along with other high Obama officials – led to everything that has followed, including the Mueller witch hunt that haunts the country to this day.

Had the Democrats been forced to jettison the Pantsuit Princess – which would have been a blessing to the Party – all of that changes.  Trump might have still won the election, because the majority of the American people were clamoring for real change from the previous 8 years, but Biden might have been able to prevail, since there is no doubt he would have made for a more effective and appealing candidate than the Fainting Felon.

Either way, the aftermath of the election would have been entirely different.  Joe Biden is many things, but no one has ever accused him of being an outright traitor to the country, as we have discovered the Coughing Crook to be.  Where Clinton was perfectly willing to serve as the titular head of the post-election effort to reverse the voters’ decision, it is extremely doubtful Biden would have done the same.

James Comey’s utter lack of courage and character, his complete lack of the “higher loyalty” he brags about in his book, led directly to everything the country has experienced, thanks to his refusal to uphold the rule of law upon which this country was founded.  In his unbridled hubris, Comey no doubt views himself as a historic figure.  He certainly is that, just not for the reasons he imagines.  The proof is in this very telling passage from his ABC interview:

“Down that path lies the death of the FBI…If I ever start considering whose political fortunes would be effected by a decision, we’re done.”  On July 5, 2016, that’s exactly what the giant drama queen did.  The entire course of American history was irrevocably changed as a result.

Just another day in James Comey is a pathetic drama queen America.

That is all.

“We fight…”: The October 2016 Trump Speech That Laid Everything Out

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[This is for everyone feeling discouraged today about the brutal tactics being deployed by the Justice Department’s deep state cabal and fake national news media against a duly elected president.  Now is not the time to lose courage.  Now is the time to stand firm.]

On October 13, 2016, less than a month before Election Day and just a few days after the national news media attempted to kill his candidacy once and for all with the frenzy over the Billy Bush tape, Donald Trump delivered a dramatic speech that laid everything out for all to see.  It is one of the greatest and most compelling speeches in presidential campaign history, and it shows that Mr. Trump was coming into this job with his eyes wide open and with a full understanding of the deep state establishment arrayed against him.

Given that, it is well worth a review at this particular moment in time, as the forces lined up to try to kill this presidency move into their end game.  The full text of the speech can be found here, but below are some of the more relevant out-takes:

“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new
government controlled by you, the American People. There is nothing the political
establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and
power at your expense.
The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it,
exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself.”

Note the inclusion of the “media corporations” as an integral part of the “Washington establishment,” which is absolutely true.  You cannot fully understand what the President is faced with today unless you accept the truth of that statement.

“For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special
interests they partner with, our campaign represents an existential threat.
This is not simply another 4-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our
civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our
government.”

Even a month before Election Day – and well before that – Trump understood what he would be faced with should he become President.  He also clearly informs voters what was truly at stake in the election, and remains in jeopardy to this day.

“The political establishment that is trying everything to stop us, is the same group
responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration, and economic
and foreign policies that have bled this country dry…”

“It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have
robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth, and put that money into
the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities…”

“The Clinton Machine is at the center of this power structure. We’ve seen this firsthand in
the WikiLeaks documents in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international
banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial
powers.  And, likewise, the emails show that the Clinton Machine is so closely and irrevocably
tied to media organizations that she is given the questions and answers in advance of
her debates. Clinton is also given approval and veto power over quotes written about her
in the New York Times. And the emails show the reporters collaborate and conspire
directly with the Clinton Campaign on helping her win the election.”

Reflect on this passage today, a day after the home, office and even hotel room of Trump’s personal lawyer were raided in the wee hours of the morning by FBI thugs carrying out orders not just from a special counsel but from a U.S. Attorney as well.  Is it clear now why, despite the outrageousness of her conduct and massive amount of compelling evidence proving her implication in so many crimes against our country, Hillary Clinton’s lawyers were not only not subjected to similar raids, but were in fact granted immunity by James Comey and an utterly corrupt FBI and Justice Department?

Again, Trump understood he would not receive anything resembling equal treatment under the law, yet continued to seek the office.  Only a man who truly cares about this country and its people would have done that in the light of this foreknowledge.

“The most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media. Let’s be
clear on one thing: the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in
journalism. They are a political special interest, no different than any lobbyist or other
financial entity with an agenda. And their agenda is to elect the Clintons at any cost, at
any price, no matter how many lives they destroy.”

Exactly.

“…I take all of these slings and arrows for you. I take them for our movement, so
that we can have our country back. Our great civilization, here in America and across
the civilized world, has come upon a moment of reckoning.

We’ve seen it in the United Kingdom, where they voted to liberate themselves from
global government and global trade deals and global immigration deals that have
destroyed their sovereignty.

But the central base of world political power is here in America, and it is our corrupt
political establishment that is the greatest power behind the efforts at radical
globalization and the disenfranchisement of working people.”

This clearly explains Trump’s laser focus on border security issues, and his persistent efforts to reform our immigration system.  He clearly recognizes the moment he is in, and the threat open borders represents to the country.

“I didn’t need to do this. I built a great company, and I had a wonderful life. I could have
enjoyed the benefits of years of successful business for myself and my family, instead of
going through this absolute horror show of lies, deceptions and malicious attacks. I’m
doing it because this country has given me so much, and I feel strongly it was my turn to
give back.

Some people warned me this campaign would be a journey to hell. But they are wrong, it
will be a journey to heaven because we will help so many people.”

Again the reason why he threw himself into harm’s way to begin with:  Love of country, love of the American people.  It really is that simple.

“What the Clinton Machine is doing to me, and my family, is egregious beyond words. It
is reprehensible beyond description.

Attacks on his 11 year-old son by the media and Democrats.  Unending attacks on his wonderfully accomplished daughter, Ivanka, and his two terrific sons, and their spouses, and their children.  Vicious, repugnant assaults on Melania, who is doing such a fantastic job as First Lady.  On and on and on it goes.  Yet, the man carries on.

But I also know, it’s not about me – it’s about all of you. It’s about all of us, together, as a
country.

It’s about the Veterans who need medical care, the mothers who’ve lost children to
terrorism and crime, it’s about the inner cities and the border towns who desperately
need our help, it’s about the millions of jobless Americans. This election is about the
people being crushed by Obamacare, and it’s about defeating ISIS and appointing
Supreme Court Justices who will defend our Constitution.

First appointment:  Justice Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.  And he has followed with conservative after conservative after conservative in his appointments to the lower courts.  Promise kept.

This election is also about the African-American and Hispanic communities whose
communities have been plunged into crime, poverty and failing schools by the policies of
Hillary Clinton. They’ve robbed these citizens of their future, and I will give them their
hope, jobs and opportunities back. I will deliver.

Lowest African American and Hispanic unemployment rates in history, but they go un-remarked by the deep state fake news media.  He has give millions their hope, jobs and opportunities back.  He has truly delivered.

This election is about every man, woman and child in our country who deserves to live
in safety, prosperity and peace.

We will rise above the lies, the smears, and the ludicrous slanders from ludicrous
reporters.

We will vote for the country we want.

We will vote for the future we want.

We will vote to put this corrupt government cartel out of business.

We will remove from our politics the special interests who have betrayed our workers, our borders, our freedoms, and our sovereign rights as a nation. We will end the politics of profit, we will end the rule of special interests, we will put a stop to the raiding of our country – and
the disenfranchisement of our people.

Our Independence Day is at hand, and it arrives, finally, on November 8th. Join me in
taking back our country, and creating a bright and glorious new dawn for our people.”

Again, a full month before Election Day, Trump knew what he would be facing if he won, and he kept running anyway.  He kept running because he understood the survival of the country as we have known it was literally at stake.

In spite of the constant, unending, slanderous harassment from the fake news media, in spite of the ever-present, abusive nuisance of an out-of-control Special Counsel, in spite of incessant leaking by disloyal White House personnel he has gone about keeping the promises he made during his campaign to the American people day after day after day.  Fifteen months into his first term in office, he has almost completely dismantled the policy legacy of Barack Obama, though the Obama legacy of abject corruption of our nation’s institutions is proving much harder to reverse.

Donald Trump has not let us down in any way.  This is no time for us to start letting him down.

Stand firm.

That is all.

Trump Should Fire Mueller and Rosenstein to Save the Country

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yesterday, I wrote about the fascists coming out into full view over in London.  A few hours after I posted that piece, the fascists came out into full view in America, too, as the FBI raided the home, office and even hotel room of long-time Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen, based on a referral from – guess who? – Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his band of merry Clinton/Obama sycophants.

The fake news media of course immediately knee-jerked to the assumption that the raid was solely designed to seize any documents related to porn star Stormy Daniels, so that they would all have an excuse to show more photos and tapes of porn star Stormy Daniels.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Cohen, after all, is the Trump lawyer who executed the non-disclosure agreement with the porn star and wrote her a personal check for $130,000 as a part of that.  Allegedly as a part of that transaction, he reportedly took out a second loan on his house, and supposedly Mueller and the New York U.S. attorney who is also involved are looking at possible bank fraud related to that loan, i.e., did Cohen misrepresent the reasons for taking the loan to the bank that loaned him the money.

However, as the afternoon and evening progressed, it eventually became clear through the fake news fog that the raids were more about Cohen’s interactions early in the 2016 campaign with an anti-Russian Ukrainian businessman named Victor Pinchuk.  Pinchuk apparently contributed $150,000 to the Trump Foundation after Trump had delivered a 20-minute speech condemning Russia’s actions towards Ukraine in 2015, and Mueller is investigating whether or not Cohen violated any campaign laws in soliciting that contribution.

Ironically, of course, the Special Counsel whose ostensible job was to investigate whether the Trump campaign had coordinated with Russia to influence the election is now focused on the campaign’s supposed interactions with a Ukranian who hates Russia.  Even more ironically, Mr. Pinchuk’s foundation gave more than $8 million to the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation while the Pantsuit Princess was Secretary of State, a situation that Mr. Mueller is spending exactly zero time looking into.

So once again we see Mr. Mueller ranging wildly outside the supposed reason for his appointment, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who made the appointment, exercising absolutely no oversight whatsoever to rein his attack dog in.  Worse, Rosenstein signed off on the conduct of yesterday’s raids in advance.

Making matters even more repugnant, many of the seized documents would normally fall under the attorney/client privilege, but the FBI/DOJ thugs have a way around even that now-dead stricture of law.  Supposedly, there will be a “separate team” of FBI agents who will review all the documents for potential privilege, and who will only turn over the non-privileged documents to the prosecutors.  If any of you really believe that such a process protecting the client (the sitting President of the United States) is actually going to take place, I have some wonderful lake front property in the Mojave Desert I’d like talk with you about.

The FBI has clearly demonstrated over the last half-decade that it simply cannot be trusted, and that it is willing to engage in any abuse of law or citizens’ rights in order to protect itself.  The timing of this raid could not be more blatant in that regard, coming as it does just one day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Chicago U.S. Attorney John Lausch to oversee the FBI’s document production to various congressional committees that the agency has been stonewalling.

For Mueller, yesterday was all about regaining control of the narrative, which has gotten away from him as his “Russia Collusion” fantasy play has fallen apart.  What better way to do that than to send the FBI in to very publicly abuse a high profile witness who has been completely cooperating with his investigation for months?

Early this morning, President Trump issued the following pair of tweets:

After yesterday’s sad events, it’s pretty hard to argue with either sentiment.

With nothing real to show for his “Russia Collusion” fantasy after almost a year, and facing the real possibility of going down in history as a failure, some are theorizing that Mueller actually wants the President to fire him in order to produce a constitutional crisis that might convince the establishment Republicans in congress to impeach Mr. Trump.

If that’s Mueller’s game plan, perhaps the time has come for President Trump to accommodate him and let the chips fall where they may.   Rosenstein needs to go as well, and if Sessions and Inspector General Michael Horowitz don’t produce the long-long-long- delayed IG report in the coming days, the President might as well go full-on Saturday Night Massacre and can them all.

Because the fact is that the DOJ and FBI are completely out of control at this point, and remain the active enemies of the rights of all Americans that they became during the Obama years, after 15 months of new governance.  That is a situation that cannot be allowed to continue.

 

Just another day in the Justice Department is a danger to all of us America.

That is all.

Trump Just Provided Cover For Real Action to End The DOJ/FBI Stonewalling of Congress

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Saturdays have always been busy Twitter days for President Trump, and yesterday was no exception.  In addition to tweets defending embattled EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and announcing that the suspicious fire that devastated an apartment in Trump Tower had been put out, Mr. Trump issued two tweets on Saturday morning related to the ongoing refusal by the FBI and Justice Department to comply with congressional demands for un-redacted documents pertinent to the FISA abuse scandal.

Here are those two tweets:

The President’s characterization of the failure of DOJ and FBI officials to produce the requested documents as “slow walking” is a vast understatement.  The reality here is that the requests for most of these documents have been outstanding since at least last August, some even longer than that.  And it’s not just the House Judiciary Committee that is being stonewalled, it’s also the House Intelligence Committee, Chaired by California Republican Devin Nunes.

Nunes became so frustrated with the situation  in mid-March that he set an April 11 deadline for the production of the documents in question, promising to pursue all remedies available to him if the stonewalling continued.  On Friday, after having produced an updated, but still redacted version of some of the documents in question, the Justice Department offered to allow members of the House Intelligence Committee to “view” these un-classified documents in a “secure room” normally used to provide viewing of documents that are highly classified.

Separately, after having missed a Thursday deadline for complying with a subpoena issued by House Judiciary Chairman Goodlatte, the DOJ said it would “supplement” what it has already produced this coming week.

Obviously, neither response is in any way acceptable, and the time has come for congress quit fooling around with the bad actors at DOJ and the FBI, and keep Rep. Nunes’s promise to use “every tool at its disposal” to force proper compliance.  Nunes and Goodlatte, both good men, have unfortunately spent the last 8 months whining about the lack of cooperation and making threats, but have always backed off when the bad actors missed whatever latest deadline had been set for compliance.  Nunes was on Fox & Friends again Sunday morning, complaining about DOJ/FBI’s latest dodge, but not saying exactly what he’s planning to do to combat it.

Here’s a suggestion:  Refuse the offer by the bad actors to “view” these documents.  That is a completely unacceptable offer, and if it is accepted, it will just show Nunes and congress to once again be a toothless tiger.  The same advice applies to Goodlatte:  your deadline has been missed, and it’s time for further, real action.  You issued a lawful subpoena that has been ignored by a bunch of scofflaws – do something real about that reality.

And guess what?  Both men now have been provided cover for taking real enforcement action by the President of the United States.  Whether they realize it or not, that is most likely why President Trump issued those specific tweets on that particular subject early on a Saturday morning.

Don’t be fooled otherwise:  There are a number of things congress has the power to do here, including levying heavy fines on the bad actors, or even having them tossed in jail.  Those are just two of five real options – with real examples of precedence – laid out by Mark Tapscott in a piece at Lifezette in a really good piece published on Saturday.

The other two people who just got some presidential cover on Saturday are FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who are now free to take some or all of the bad actors who have been conducting the document production stonewall.  If they’re too squeamish to take the media heat for such firings themselves, they can always point to the President’s and congress’s frustrations as the justification for finally, at long last taking some action to break up the logjam at their agencies.

The President doesn’t just tweet this stuff for no reason.  We should expect some serious action to end the stonewalling of these various congressional committees in the coming days.

Just another day in the FBI is an outlaw agency America.

That is all.

The Timing on That ABC Piece About McCabe Investigating Sessions Sure Was Interesting

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, let’s construct a little timeline…

February 28 – President Trump issues a seemingly nasty tweet that is critical of both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz:

Early March – the fake news media, including ABC, leaps to the defense of Sessions and Horowitz, a reaction to Trump’s tweet that was as predictable as the sun rising in the East.

March 13 – The DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility recommends that Sessions fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.  That recommendation is based on a finding by IG Horowitz, stemming from his 14-month investigation into FBI/DOJ wrongdoing.

March 16 – Sessions fires McCabe late on a Friday evening, just two days before McCabe’s pension was set to kick in, ensuring that the firing would be one of the main topics of conversation on all the Sunday morning fake news programs.

March 17-18 – The fake news media, in obvious coordination with the Democrat Party, hilariously attempts to blame McCabe’s firing initially on President Trump.  Trump, of course, literally had nothing to do with the firing at all, and it quickly becomes apparent the public isn’t buying it.

March 18-19 – The fake news media also slowly begins to wake up to the fact that the firing of McCabe was executed by Sessions and Horowitz, two men they had all spent the first half of March saying very nice things about.  This makes it tough for them to shift their tactic from blaming Trump for McCabe’s firing to blaming Sessions.  But they have to blame someone in the Trump administration for some sort of wrongdoing in the McCabe firing, because that’s what the narrative dictates.  What to do?

March 21 – ABC tries to solve the conundrum with its story alleging that McCabe, almost a year ago, opened a criminal investigation targeting his own boss, Sessions.  By filing this story just a few days after McCabe’s firing, ABC obviously hopes to convey the blatantly false impression that Sessions actually fired McCabe because he was angry at having been investigated by a subordinate.

Sadly, this is how the fake media in our country works.  Nevermind that McCabe was smack in the middle of the abuse of the FISA process, the faking of the investigation into the Clinton email scandal, is alleged to have encouraged his subordinate, Peter Strzok, to falsify his notes from his interview with Mike Flynn in order to entrap Flynn into a trumped-up guilty plea for lying to the FBI, and on and on and on.  The narrative dictates that Donald Trump is the bad guy, and anyone who is on the bad side of Donald Trump is the good guy – it simply must be that way.

Which is why, when Trump issues a tweet critical of Sessions and Horowitz, the fake media rushes to their defense, and when Trump praises the firing of McCabe, the fake media rushes to call Sessions and Horowitz the real crooks.  Watching the fake media go back and forth on these guys is like watching a tennis match from the stands at center court.

But that’s what the anti-Trump narrative dictates, and the narrative must always prevail.  It’s important to remember here that literally no one is exempt from this simple rule.  Just wait to see what a villain Robert Mueller becomes in the fake news media’s eyes when he is finally forced to admit publicly that there was no collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia.

That is all.

Hillary Clinton and McCabe Clarify Job #1 for Sessions: Punish the Deep State Cabal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Remember, whenever a Clinton accuses someone else of wrongdoing, it means they’re guilty of that behavior themselves. – The Pantsuit Princess, in an interview on Dutch television, claimed that President Donald Trump has “undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family. Disregarded laws, ethical standards.”

This, of course, is yet another episode of Clintonian “projection,” an attempt to deflect attention from her own influence scam while serving as Secretary of State.  Seems the Grasping Grifter must have gotten wind that the Justice Department’s ongoing investigations into the Clinton Crime Family’s Fake Foundation and the Uranium One scandals are bearing some fruit.  Cool.

The Coughing Crook also ironically accused the President of “undermining the stability of the global order.”  Well, yes, that is what the Trump campaign was, and the Trump presidency is all about.  It’s what he got elected to do, and – shockingly to every politician and fake journalist in Washington – it is actually what he is going about doing.

Wait, what?  And he was surprised he got fired? – ABC News reported on Wednesday that now-fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe oversaw a criminal investigation last summer against…wait for it…his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions!

Oh, but it gets even better.  Turns out the investigation was initiated at the demand of…wait for it…disgraced former Minnesota Senator Al Franken.  The pusillanimous ex-bad comic insisted the FBI investigate Sessions because he believed the AG had not told him the truth during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier in the year.

Of course, the very most absurd part of this story is the fact that Democrat voters have become so utterly demented and devoid of any real standards in their voting patterns that Al Franken was once actually a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.  This is me, slapping my damn head.

But back to McCabe:  Seriously, you conduct a criminal investigation of your own boss and then have the nerve to feign surprise when you get your butt run off?  There can be no more perfect illustration of the entitled attitudes of the deep state thugs who still infest the federal bureaucracy.  No one elected creeps like McCabe and James Comey and Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr to do anything, yet they all obviously believed they were entitled to work to fix a national election and, having failed at that, to work to undermine a duly-elected President.

When they get caught and summarily fired, they issue intemperate, threatening and demonstrably false statements written by professional talking points monkeys (McCabe) expressing their outrage at being caught and fired, or they steal government records, leak them to the New York Times (Comey) and start issuing increasingly weird messages on their Twitter feeds.

These people all believed they were somehow special; that, despite the fact that no citizen had ever cast a single vote in their favor, they were the chosen ones who somehow had a duty to commit crimes designed to guide the destiny of a nation of 330 million people.

It’s important to never forget the foundational key to all of this:  They all felt free to commit all manner of crimes in pursuit of their goals because they knew with absolute certainty that, if the Fainting Felon won the 2016 election, there would be no investigation into any of this.  They knew that, not only would they never be in any way punished for their crimes, they would in fact most likely be rewarded for their actions on behalf of the Cackling Crank, who they all fully expected to win.

And why wouldn’t they think this way?  After all, they’d just gone through 8 years during which the FBI and Department of Justice had been increasingly corrupted at the highest levels by a President who had promised to “transform the country” and by political appointees dead set on carrying out that mission.  Indeed, it is becoming increasingly obvious with every passing day and release of more Strzok/Page texts that this deep state cabal was right in the middle of “transforming the country” into just another third world banana republic when a very inconvenient election intervened.

The more we learn about this deep state cabal and its efforts to subvert our democratic processes, the more I lean towards viewing the outcome of the 2016 election as an act of a very benevolent God.  What they did was treasonous, and it is vitally important that they all be brought to justice if our country is going to survive.  Because the past week’s statements by McCabe, Comey, Brennan, Power and the Pantsuit Princess make it crystal clear that none of them has any intention of voluntarily relenting.

Just another day in deep state America.

That is all.
