Another Trump Troll, Another IG Report Delay to End the Week

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Ok, so here’s the strategy on this latest huge jobs report.  We all do a 10-second report on it as soon as it’s issued and then just drop it like we always d…wait, what?  The President just did what?  He tweeted about it?  You have got to be sh…ok, that’s a huge story – gotta go report on it!” – The President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, got in one final troll of the fake news media before the weekend Friday morning when he issued a tweet prior to the release of this month’s latest fantastic jobs report:

As you can see, the tweet reveals absolutely no information about the report itself, yet it set off a mad scramble among pretty much every fake reporter in the fake news media to see who could be the first to get a report out claiming that the tweet “breached protocol” with some stories even claiming it to be a crime.  Hilarious, and obviously idiotically fake stuff.

This was an obvious troll by the President to force the fake news media, which has in past months barely even mentioned the stunning jobs growth being experienced in the Trump economy, to actually do their jobs.  So, while all the fake reporters and fake editors no doubt believed their fake reports were damaging the President they all hate, the fact is that millions of Americans today learned that the economy added far more jobs in April than anyone expected, and the economy is nearing actual full employment.

Had Trump not issued that tweet, yet another in a long string of fantastic jobs reports would have gone basically ignored by our fake national news media.  The joke’s on you guys, even though you probably still don’t even realize it.

IG Report Delayed, yet again. – Charles Grassley postponed the scheduled June 5 hearing of his Senate Judiciary Committee to review the long-pending DOJ Inspector General’s report on the FBI’s fake investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal.  The hearing is now tentatively scheduled for June 11, meaning Grassley now expects the report to be made public late next week.

These delaying games being endlessly played by DOJ are incredibly tiresome.  No telling what is being done to that report as time goes on and bad actors like Rod Rosenstein have it in their greasy hands.

On a related note, the news fakers at the Washington Post reported late Thursday that ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey was interviewed “recently” by D.C.-based U.S. attorneys leading the prosecution of his ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  McCabe is facing charges for repeatedly lying to DOJ investigators and making unauthorized leaks to the news media, which he claims his boss – the teenage drama queen – knew all about.  Comey denies McCabe’s story, and thus prosecutors will almost certainly be left with trying to sort out which of the two famous – and infamous – liars to believe.

It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

That is all.

Trump Uses the Pardon Power to Reverse the Thuggish DOJ/FBI Legacy

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats in Action!  Part I – The Daily Caller reports this morning that an admitted pedophile who once threatened to assassinate President George W. Bush is now an “independent” congressional candidate thanks to the efforts of despicable former Virginia Governor and long-time Clinton bag man Terry McAuliffe.

Per the Caller:

“Nathan Larson is an independent candidate in Virginia who admitted to HuffPost that he’s a pedophile who bragged in blog posts about raping his ex-wife and fantasized online about having sex with young children.

Larson is also a convicted felon who wouldn’t be eligible to run for office in Virginia had McAuliffe not restored Larson’s rights to vote and run for office in 2016.

Larson was sentenced to 16 months in prison in October 2009 for threatening to kill the president.”

Virginia law cancels voting rights for convicted felons, but McAuliffe, in a desperate effort to fix the 2016 election in his state for the Pantsuit Princess, issued an executive order in 2016 restoring voting rights to more than 10,000 convicted felons in the state, most of whom he obviously expected to vote Democrat.  Gee, wonder why?

So now Larson’s running for Congress thanks to the despicable actions of a despicable man.  Way to go, Democrats!

Democrats in Action!  Part II – Speaking of Virginia Democrats, some guy named Dan Helmer is running for congress in the state’s 10th congressional district against incumbent Republican Barbara Comstock.  Although completely overshadowed by all the hysteria surrounding Roseanne Barr and Samantha Bee, Helmer’s new TV ad created controversy yesterday because it equates the current President of the United States to Osama Bin Laden.

I would say this is a new low for Democrats, but is it really?  They’ve gone so low so many times that it becomes almost impossible to tell anymore.

One thing is for sure:  Virginia’s Democrats are just loading up the November ballot with scumbags, which they obviously believe is the right strategy for appealing to the state’s voters.  Hey, they voted for McAuliffe twice, so sound legit to me.

Democrats in Action!  Part III – Famed liberal poll analyst Nate Silver, who was hilariously wrong about every.  little.  thing during the 2016 election campaign, has a post up on his website this morning titled…wait for it…”Which Pollsters to Trust in 2018.”  I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump issued a pardon on Thursday for conservative film-maker Dinesh D’Souza, in an obvious jab at both former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara (who Trump fired) and former FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey (who Trump also fired).

D’Souza had been made an example of by the corrupt Obama Justice Department and FBI after he had produced a film critical of America’s Biggest Mistake, Mr. Obama.  Bharara and Comey’s FBI turned D’Souza into a literal political prisoner for having contributed $20,000 to a New York political candidate, allegedly exceeding the contribution limits by encouraging others to also contribute.  The filmmaker plead guilty after Bharara had Comey’s agents raid his home and threatened to add additional charges for the same alleged actions that could have resulted in 5 years in federal prison.

In other words, Bharara was using exactly the tactics that Special Counsel Robert Mueller used to browbeat General Mike Flynn into his guilty plea last November – do it, or we’ll completely destroy your life.  This is Gestapo stuff, not anything that should happen in America.  But don’t kid yourselves:  it happens all the time.

Talking to reporters later in the day, the President speculated he might also pardon Martha Stewart, who then-FBI Director Mueller’s thugs also browbeat into a guilty plea for lying to investigators in 2004.  You may have thought the home designer served her 5 months in prison for “insider trading” – the allegation that led to the FBI’s inquisition of her, but you’d be wrong.

Curiously – and somewhat hilariously – the President also speculated that he might even pardon former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who was sent to prison for allegedly selling the senate seat Obama vacated in 2007 to the highest bidder.  Fans of the Celebrity Apprentice will remember that Blago actually was a contestant on that show while he was awaiting trial.  Since his conviction, evidence of FBI thuggery and prosecutors withholding of exculpatory evidence have come to light, which should at this point surprise absolutely no one with actively firing synapses in their brain.

The U.S. Attorney in that case?  Patrick Fitzgerald, the infamous Bush-era Special Counsel who basically framed Scooter Libby, who, by the way, Trump also pardoned a few weeks ago.  The FBI Director at the time?  First Robert Mueller, later James Comey.   So that case is a two-fer.

Now that he’s pretty much finished erasing the horrid, un-American legacy of Barack Obama, President Trump seems intent on erasing the equally repugnant legacy of America’s Gestapo.  Awesome.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.

Grassley Schedules Hearing; Horowitz Report About to Drop

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was inevitable. – Roseanne Barr self-destructed on Tuesday, sending out a racist tweet targeting Barack Obama’s loathsome toady Valerie Jarrett, which resulted in her show being cancelled by the end of the day by Disney’s CEO Bob Iger.  Some of you have inquired over the last several weeks about why I haven’t said much of anything about the great success of Roseanne’s TV show revival, in which her character is a fan of President Trump.  Now you know.

Look, I never cared for Roseanne Barr to begin with and pretty much never watched her show when it was in its first run.  I found her to be personally repugnant, none of the characters on the show to be especially appealing or sympathetic, and the show itself to be inappropriate for the kids.  Why would things be any different 25 years later?

Plus, Roseanne herself is crazy, and some episode in which she personally imploded was frankly inevitable.  No one should ever hang their hat on some nutty celebrity – the same goes for Kanye West, who has been famously complimentary of the President in recent weeks as well.  He’s also a nut, and a personal implosion is pretty much inevitably in his future as well.

And please don’t respond to this with all these moral equivalency statements.  Yes, I know all sorts of leftist celebrities and fake news media personalities have made all sorts of racist and homophobic statements and tweets, and none of them get fired.  I don’t care – it’s how the media/entertainment complex double standard works.  If celebrities like Barr and Kanye don’t like it and can’t control their mouths then they shouldn’t engage in it.

Roseanne needed firing – I dislike Disney as much as anyone, but Iger really had no choice in the matter.  And all the people out there in social media trying to mount a campaign to get Fox to pick up the show are idiots.  Neither Fox nor anyone else would touch Roseanne with a 100-foot pole right now.

Roseanne is done – her only choice now is to do a Mel Gibson, disappear for about 5 years, and hope everyone forgets.  Sadly for her, they won’t.

Expect the Horowitz Report later this week. – Why?  Because Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley took the action late yesterday to schedule a June 5 hearing of his committee to examine the findings in the DOJ Inespector General’s report on the department’s fake investigation into the Pantsuit Princess email scandal and other Clinton-related matters.  No called witnesses are listed on the notice, but we can assume Horowitz will be one of them.

This obviously means that Grassley expects the report to be made public prior to that time, which makes sense given that it has been circulating within DOJ for almost three weeks now.  We should probably expect to see it late Friday.

Just as a reminder, this report ostensibly deals only with the Fainting Felon’s email abuse and the Comey-led, rigged investigation conducted by the FBI and DOJ.  It will also cover other related matters, whatever they might be.  It is not supposed to touch on all the rampant FISA abuse, the Uranium One scandal, the “Crossfire Hurricane” effort to spy on the Trump campaign and transition team, the illegal unmaskings, and all the other Obama-era process abuses at DOJ, FBI and the CIA, among others.

Those myriad abuses by the Obama Administration will be addressed in a subsequent IG report, which will hopefully come before the end of the century.  Ok, just kidding – it’s supposed to come sometime this summer.

But here’s the thing about that subsequent report:  the content of the report we are about to see will give us a very usable preview of what to expect in the next report.  If this upcoming report from the IG is just an effort to whitewash the whole thing and give Comey/Strzok/Page/Ohr/Baker/Priestap and others at FBI and DOJ a pass, the we can expect the subsequent report to do the same, and quit worrying about it all.

But if this IG report on the email scandal is a hard-hitting, no-nonsense report of the sort Mr. Horowitz is famous for – and that his report on Andrew McCabe’s actions certainly was – then we can be optimistic that the final report will be of similar quality.

The anticipation of waiting for this IG report reminds me of what I wrote shortly after Comey made his famous speech on July 6 , 2016 exonerating the Pantsuit Princess at the conclusion of his rigged investigation:

The tragedy of James Comey is one of lost opportunity. He and he alone had a chance – possibly the last chance anyone will ever have if Hillary is elected in November – 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 alone could have become a true American hero by showing that this principle still applies in our society. Because he lacked either the character or the courage to do so, he demonstrated, perhaps irrevocably, that the opposite is 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.
 
It’s a tragedy, plain and simple.  Nothing else matters or need be said. 

 

Michael Horowitz now has the same opportunity that Comey had almost two years ago – he can be remembered either as the steadfast public servant who, like Admiral Mike Rogers and Representive Devin Nunes, did everything he could to save the Republic, or just another tragic functionary in a hopelessly-corrupted Department of Justice. 

Let’s hope he makes the right choice.  I’m not even going to hazard a guess.

Just another day in Michael Horowitz is the man of the hour America.

That is all.

The Deep State and its Media Enablers Need Better Talking Points

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The North Korea Summit is cancelled!!!!  Woo-hooooooo!!!! Kim wins!!!! Break out the champagne!!!!  Oh, wait, it may be back on?  Trump sandbagged us again?  Isn’t there a plane crash or school shooting we can report on instead? – As we noted in Friday morning’s Campaign Update, Thursday was a day of anti-American celebration in the nation’s fake news media and among Democrat officials everywhere, as they all thought that President Trump’s letter “cancelling” the scheduled June 12 summit meeting with the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea had produced a victory for their favorite brutal dictator, and a loss for their hated U.S. President.

All the celebrations and snarky remarks suddenly gave way to disappointment and subject-shifting on Friday, as Kim Jong Un issued communications making it clear he is anxious to move forward with the meeting, and President Trump and other U.S. officials said there was a chance the June 12 meeting might still take place after all.  The toothy smiles displayed on Thursday by the on-air fake talent at CNN and MSNBC gave way to pouty frowns as it became suddenly obvious to even the dimmest bulbs at the two fakest news channels that they and their Democrat buddies had been presidentially trolled yet again.

So they did what fake editors and fake reporters and fake talking heads always do and shifted the subject to something else, like the ever-reliable fake Russia Collusion fantasy play.

Speaking of which, the detestable deep state snake John Brennan (who has just got to be the role model for the Dar Adol character on “Homeland” – those who watch that show will know what I’m talking about), who has spent his entire career warping reality to fit the deep state’s preferred narrative of the day, on Friday told some fake interviewer that President Trump is  “masterful at… twisting the truth in order to support his narrative.”  Pot, meet kettle.

Brennan also spent a great deal of time parroting James Comey’s and James Clapper’s tortured distinctions between what is a “spy” as opposed to what constitutes a “confidential source.”  Note to deep state coup cabal participants:  If you are having to spend weeks attempting to redefine terms like “spy” and “spying” when the public is already aware of tons of proof that you sent “spies” into the Trump Campaign and transition team to “spy” on them, you are in deep, deep doo-doo.  Even deeper than the doo-doo you normally gladly inhabit.

Of course, this joint media/Democrat/Comey/Clapper/Brennan effort to redefine what the words “spy” and “spying” mean is just the latest iteration in the evolution of their response to the steady drip-drip-drip of proof that the Obama Administration conspired to fix the 2016 election for the Pantsuit Princes.  It is in fact the sixth stage of this ill-conceived effort to deceive that we have witnessed since last January:

  • Ridiculing claims by President Trump that his campaign was spied on;
  • Lying to multiple congressional committees about claims the Trump campaign was spied on;
  • Attempting to criminalize claims that the Trump campaign was spied on;
  • Admitting that, well, yes we spied on the Trump campaign, but it was for his own good and he should have been happy about it;
  • Saying of course we spied on the Trump campaign because it was our patriotic duty;
  • And now, a classic Clintonian effort to parse what the meaning of “spying” is.

It has devolved to this for the simple fact that, at the end of the day, this desperate effort to parse words and terms is all they’ve got.  They’ve been caught with their filthy hands in the cookie jar.

Now, they’re all facing the final stages of the slow-rolling revelations of their massive wrongdoing as former and current FBI agents are coming out of the woodwork, volunteering to testify before congressional committees about what they witnessed while all the shenanigans were going on.  First up in this parade will be Bill Priestap, the Chief of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, who was the boss of FBI Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok during the coup effort.

He will be joined in June by two other agents  – Michael Steinbach, formerly head of the agency’s national security division; and Steinbach’s predecessor, John Giacalone – as witnesses before the House Oversight Committee and House Judiciary Committee.  Priestap’s testimony should be especially compelling given his likely role in the whole thing – he was frequently mentioned in Strzok’s texts with his lover Lisa Page – and the probability that he has remained  in his job most likely because he’s been cooperating with the investigations by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber.

In addition to the coming parade of FBI agents testifying before congress, Brennan/Clapper/Comey and their fake media support group also face the impending release of the next report from Horowitz, which covers the fake investigation in to the Coughing Crook’s email scandal and other Hillary-related matters.

It’s going to be awesome to see what new line of tortured talking points the cabal and their media support group come up with next.

Just another day in the plot to take down a president keeps crumbling America.

The Deep State Cabal Moves Into Justification Phase With American Pravda’s Help

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Gosh, I’m old enough to remember like, a couple of weeks ago, when everyone at CNN was sagely ensuring us that President Donald Trump’s crazy policies would lead to a massive trade war with China.  Then yesterday, this happened:

Oooops.

The Cabal and American Pravda move into justification phase. – The Sunday morning talk shows today will no doubt be filled with Democrats and fake journalists reciting talking points about how terrible it is for congressional oversight committees and supporters of President Trump to want to “out” the identity of a “confidential source” for the FBI and CIA.  What these Democrats and fake journalists are not going to admit is that the FBI and CIA spent the last week systematically ensuring that this “source” was outed through a series of strategic leaks to the New York Times and the Washington Post, which the fake journalists at the Times and the Post eagerly accepted and published.

Say hello to American Pravda, which officially arrived as of this week.  The mainstream news media crossed the line formally into being nothing but useful tools of the deep state with the publication of these articles, and the follow-on support propaganda provided them by the fake reporters and talking heads at CNN, MSNBC and the major networks.

The Times even went so far as to publish a piece under the headline “FBI Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims”, which is hilariously self-refuting.  Not to be outdone, the Post followed that with a piece written by an ex-FBI agent who was one of Jim Comey’s subordinates with the title “If the FBI Used an Informant, it Wasn’t to go After Trump.  It was to Protect Him.”

If Jeff Bezos had owned the Post in 1940, we’d have no doubt seen this headline:  “Hitler Didn’t Invade France to Dominate it; He Invaded France to Protect it from England.”

My goodness.

Virginia Senator Mark Warner, who we should all remember was caught last year coordinating efforts with a Russian agent, spent his time Friday evening issuing a series of tweets hilariously trying to make the case that it is actually illegal for congressional committees to exercise oversight of the FBI and CIA:

By the time Warner issued those idiotic tweets, the name of the “source” – Stephan Halper – had been known for days, outed by strategic leaks coming from those very agencies.  Halper is a retired U.S. college professor who now lives in England and teaches courses at Cambridge.  He has been a well-known, long-time contract asset for the CIA.

What we now know is that in the mid-summer of 2016, he was assigned by most likely then-CIA Director John Brennan or someone who worked for him to begin making contacts with junior members of the Trump Campaign – first Carter Page and then the pitiful George Papadopoulos – in an effort to “dirty them up.”  The strategy was to convince these two to take meetings with Russian nationals or people with Russian contacts so that he could then report back to the CIA that he had “observed” these meetings, thus creating the “raw intelligence” necessary for Brennan to authorize Comey’s FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump Campaign, which is exactly what happened on August 1, 2016.

Got it?  A classic entrapment operation.  The entire Russia Collusion fantasy play was a set-up from day one.  This is the “insurance policy” that Super-Duper FBI Agent Peter Strzok referenced in one of his 50,000 texts to his mistress Lisa Page.  As early as July 2016, the FBI/CIA deep state cabal had a plan to activate this “insurance policy” on the off chance that Trump won the election.  And the Pantsuit Princess was well aware of it all along, which explains her funding of the fake Trump Dossier and why she started talking about Russia Collusion the day after the election.

Now that all of this has been uncovered by independent researchers – doing the job of the incurious fake journalists who infest American Pravda – and with the next report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz looming, the deep state cabal and its congressional and media support group have moved on from the cover-up phase of their falling-apart conspiracy to the justification phase.  So you end up with the incredibly absurd rationalizing pieces we’ve seen in the Times and the Post this week, and congressional co-conspirators like Mark Warner sending out tweets of desperation on a Friday evening.

Interestingly, President Trump issued this tweet on Saturday afternoon:

It has been well-discussed that the President has the absolute authority to declassify any document and force its release.  This tweet indicates he is at least considering doing that related to some of the thousands of documents that the FBI and DOJ have refused to release to congressional committees over the last year.

Somewhere, Rod Rosenstein is sweating even more than usual.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down a president is falling apart America.

That is all.

In the Wake of Santa Fe, Maybe President Trump Should Take Andrew Cuomo’s Advice

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There’s this big wedding going on over in England as I write this, and for the life of me I can’t figure out why any American gives a damn.  I’m just irritated because I won’t be getting my morning dose of news.

In the real world, there was another tragic school shooting on Friday, this time in Santa Fe, Texas, and all I can wonder is how long it will take before we find out that the Barney Fifes at the FBI had the killer under surveillance but did nothing to stop him.  Being from Texas, I pray we don’t find out he had been disciplined by school officials more than 50 times for threatening and violent behavior, and that the local authorities had been called to his house more than 30 times in the few years leading up to the killings, and also did nothing.

Whatever the facts of the killer’s sordid life, here’s a fact no one can deny:  10 more innocent people – 9 students and 1 teacher – are dead, having been killed in another of America’s “gun-free zones,” which progressives like to keep our public schools, and 99% of those schools remain open targets for the depraved, demented potential killers lurking in pretty much every community in the country.  Failing to note that the killing spree ended only when good guys with guns showed up and took the killer down like the animal that he is, liberal politicians everywhere grabbed the tragedy as an opportunity to score political points, which of course is what liberal politicians do with any good tragedy.

Never one to be outdone in the realm of rank hypocrisy, Andrew Cuomo, who presides as Governor over the peaceful, killing-free province of New York, sent an “open letter” (God, how I detest open letters) via his Twitter account (God, how I detest even more open letters sent on Twitter – the emptiest gesture known to mankind) to President Donald Trump:

Here is why Cuomo’s letter is so vile and detestable – even more detestable than your standard liberal self-serving reaction that inevitably follows tragedies such as this.  The public schools in America are controlled at the state and local levels of government.  The federal government provides funding and a flood of counterproductive “guidelines”, i.e. “dictates” that come with that funding, but the campuses themselves are governed by the states and local officials.

The fact is that Andrew Cuomo has done exactly nothing to protect New York’s school children in his eight years as governor.  New York’s public schools remain wide open potential killing fields just as most schools in the other 49 states in the nation remain.  As one Twitter user responded to Cuomo, “Why don’t YOU do something in the State of NY that is so terrific that the rest of the States in the USA will follow? IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO LEAD!”

Trust me, we don’t want Andrew Cuomo leading other states on this or any other issue.  Talk about the road to ruin.

And what would Cuomo have the President unilaterally use the power of his office to do?  Constitutionally, he could conceivably declare a national emergency and call in the National Guard to patrol every public school in America.  Otherwise, not much he can do on his own.

Imagine the liberal wailing if he took that step.  Literally every person working at CNN would have a case of the vapors for weeks.  John Brennan and James Comey would dictate another 4,000 word piece to the New York Times justifying putting 13 spies in the White House.  The DNC would respond by appointing Louis Farrakhan its chairman.  Dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

Come to think of it, maybe calling in the National Guard is just the thing to do.  Seriously, why not try it?  Congress isn’t going to do anything.  Governors like Cuomo are just baying dogs who will never take any effective action to protect children.  Why should our airports and every government building in Washington and Albany be protected by heavy security, but our kids are just left out in the open as easy targets?

Go for it, Mr. President.  If liberal heads explode, so much the better.

Just another day in somebody needs to DO SOMETHING America.

That is all.

Buckle up, Folks: “Crossfire Hurricane” Means Things Are About to Speed Up

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some things to think about as we enter the next phase of this war against the Deep State and the Cabal within DOJ and the FBI that first tried to fix the 2016 election outcome for the Pantsuit Princess, and have spent the last 18 months attempting to bring down the duly-elected President of the United States:

  • Wednesday’s “Crossfire Hurricane” article published by the fake New York Times marks the end of the cover-up phase of this conspiracy.  The more you read that article in detail, the more you realize it has, in the effort to provide justification for the Cabal’s actions, in fact exposed pretty much every detail of the conspiracy.
  • One striking aspect of the report is that, where all the previous fake reports filed by the Times and WaPo in their efforts to help cover up for the Cabal cited only “unidentified sources”, you suddenly have people like Sally Yates, Mary McCord and some others talking on the record in an effort to cover themselves.  This never happened while the cover-up was going on.
  • We are now beginning to see selective leaks today of certain specifics contained in the report of DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, which is being circulated at DOJ and the FBI so those who are named in it have a chance to provide responses.  Those leaks are not coming from the good guys, who have kept this process utterly devoid of leaks for 17 months now.
  • The leaks are coming from the targets, in an effort get the information into the public domain so that their media support group can publish more fake articles providing justification for the cabal’s actions.
  • By the way, note that only the bad actors who remain employed at DOJ and FBI get the opportunity to read the report in advance.  Those who have already been given their walking papers – people with names like McCabe and Yates and McCord and Page and Baker and Comey and Brennan and Lynch and on and on and on – receive no such opportunity.
  • This helps explain why the only people talking on the record to the Times were people who no longer worked at those agencies.  It also makes it very likely that the leaks are coming from the bad actors still employed.  Think about it.
  • We need to also remember something key here:  While the Times article claims that the Cabal was very careful to keep its actions secret so as not to lend credibility to Trump’s claims of a rigged election, the truth is that details of what was going on were being leaked all over the damn place in real time.  The media was filled with anonymously-sourced articles detailing accusations about Carter Page, General Flynn and Paul Manafort throughout the summer and fall of 2016.  Where are we supposed to believe this information was coming from?  The answer is obvious, and that leads to the next bullet point here, which is…
  • …there are some in the fake news media who were complicit in all of this.  Reporters and editors and TV hosts who were coordinating efforts and messages and timing of articles with this effort to fix the election, and later with the effort to take down the President.  As the evidence of wrongdoing is presented in the IG report and in court cases that will follow, it will not be all that difficult for independent researchers to go back through the media record to figure out who those complicit individuals are.  This scandal does not end at the exit to the Hoover Building.
  • Finally, one of the leaks about the Horowitz report today is particularly interesting to me:  Real journalist Paul Sperry issued this tweet on Thursday afternoon:

  • If true, this clearly demonstrates the coordinated effort going on between Horowitz and his army of more than 400 investigators and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber.  If you remember, Attorney General Jeff Sessions cleverly let it be known in an interview several weeks back that he didn’t need to create a second Special Counsel because he had had Huber and his team working in coordination with the IG since at least last October.  It is very, very likely that Huber has had at least one, and possibly multiple grand juries convened for months now, and that he will be ready to move quickly towards prosecuting the bad actors once the IG’s report has been issued.

If you think things have been moving quickly up to now, well, better buckle up, because they’re only going to move faster from here on out.

That is all.

The Deep State Assault on Devin Nunes Reeks of Desperation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – At 8:00 a.m CT today, the U.S. embassy in Israel will formally transfer its operations from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  The promise to make this move has been made by every U.S. president since George H. W. Bush.  It took President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) to actually keep the promise on behalf of 315 million Americans.

Oh, by all means, share away. – A senior official in the Iranian government issued a threat to the United States and other countries over the weekend that all 315 million Americans should welcome.  Well, all, that is, except those members of the Obama Administration and their hangers- on who allegedly accepted bribes to make the horrible deal with Iran happen. Because they, if they exist, are the target of the threat.

H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said he would do the dirty work:  “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they had received during nuclear negotiations to make #IranDeal happen,” Mr. Zarif reportedly said.

Gosh, maybe that explains why John Kerry has continued his serial violations of the Logan Act even after President Trump announced he was ending U.S. participation in the terrible deal that he negotiated.  On Saturday, Kerry was spotted meeting with three Iranian officials in a Paris cafe’, with one patron claiming he overheard the former Secretary of State railing against President Trump during the conversation, before being photographed lurching away from the meeting by another diner.

Seriously, I have no idea if any actual “bribery” took place during the sham negotiations over the deal, but it would help to explain why some members of the Obama Administration were so anxious to commit the U.S. to an agreement in which our country gained literally nothing.  So if there really is evidence of any such bribery, by all means, share away, Mr. Zarif.  Don’t leave us hanging here.

The deep state is really, really worried about Devin Nunes, and we should all be just fine with that. – Speaking to some audience of poor saps in Washington over the weekend, ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey said that, in his pursuit of actual information from deep state thugs at the Justice Department and the FBI, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is “acting dangerously.”

“You cannot overstate the danger in that kind of behavior to the security of the United States,” Comey said.

Comey’s absurd statements align directly – shocking, I know – with recent talking points targeting Nunes in the fake news media, and with recent statements by Deputy U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, who called Nunes’ legitimate efforts to obtain information from DOJ under his committee’s oversight responsibilities “extortion.”  Holy cow.

But it only got more extreme from Comey:

Comey, who was fired by President Trump last year, said he’s never seen this level of pressure for the intelligence community to abdicate information about a protected source. He warned this effort “risks the death of the thing that is at the core of our ability to protect this country.”

Let’s review here what Chairman Nunes is currently after from our deep state DOJ.  He is looking for the name of the supposed “intelligence asset” who Obama CIA Director John Brennan used as the basis for the communication he sent over to the FBI in July 2016 formally authorizing the commencement of a counterintelligence operation against the Trump Campaign.  He is attempting to determine if this “asset” had been inserted into the Trump Campaign by the Obama intelligence community, or if he was interacting with members of the Trump Campaign in a classic spy effort to “dirty them up” to give the appearance of wrongdoing.

The truth is that Nunes and many other people already know the identity of the person in question, as his name has been uncovered by enterprising independent investigators and has been bandied about all over the internet over the past four days, along with documentation that, in late September 2016, he was paid a very large amount of money by the intelligence community with taxpayer dollars for his efforts.  And the truth is that the FBI had already been conducting a counterintelligence operation against the Trump Campaign well before it received the communication from Mr. Brennan authorizing same.  We’ve known that for some time now.

This is what James Comey and John Brennan and all the other Obama deep staters are so desperate to cover up:  The Obama Administration was actively spying on and attempting to entrap members of the presidential campaign of the opposition party.  This is the most shocking breach of the public trust ever committed by any presidential administration, and Devin Nunes is intent upon exposing it to the public.

So it’s no wonder that the public statements by Mr. Comey and the shrill tweets coming out of Mr. Brennan literally reek of desperation.  These are really bad, really guilty people who engaged in the worst sort of betrayal under the belief it would all be covered up when Hillary Clinton won the election.

Just one problem:  Hillary didn’t win.  Oops.

Just another day in the deep state is reeking of desperation America.

That is all.

As The Week Ends, Chuck Grassley Drops a Bomb of His Own

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, there’s never a dull moment in Washington, DC these days.  It seems we can never get to the end of a work week without major new developments in the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play getting dropped into the mix for the weekend.

Tired of being stonewalled by the tag team of Rosenstein and Wray, Grassley late this afternoon sent a letter over to both men demanding documents his Senate Judiciary Committee had first requested more than a year ago.  Specifically, Sen. Grassley is interested in seeing the underlying FBI documentation that was provided to Special Counsel Robert Mueller related to the General Mike Flynn guilty plea, including the 302 forms created by all FBI agents who were present at the initial interview of General Flynn.

When Grassley and his committee initially requested these documents in March of 2017, DOJ and the FBI responded by sending ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen Jim Comey up to capital hill to offer a closed-door briefing on the matter.  In his letter today, Grassley confirms that, during that testimony, Comey told the committee that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn saw no reason to believe he lied to them during the meeting, an assertion that Comey, in his preparation for his coming criminal defense, is now running all over the country denying.

This is a big deal, if for no other reason than that it places just one more pressure point on Rosenstein and Wray to end their long efforts to stonewall congressional investigators.  The letter also places major new pressure on Comey to come clean with the following passage:

“The Justice Department declined to provide any of that information, and instead then-FBI Director Comey provided a wide-ranging briefing to us on March 15, 2017 that touched on the Flynn issues.

Like the Flynn interview itself, that briefing was not transcribed. Also like the Flynn
interview, there are notes taken by a career, non-partisan law enforcement officer who was
present. The agent was on detail to the Committee staff at the time. According to that agent’s
contemporaneous notes, Director Comey specifically told us during that briefing that the FBI
agents who interviewed Lt. General Michael Flynn, “saw nothing that led them to believe [he
was] lying.” Our own Committee staff’s notes indicate that Mr. Comey said the ‘agents saw no
change in his demeanor or tone that would say he was being untruthful.'”

So, not only do the committee’s notes reflect Comey’s assertion of Flynn’s truthfulness during that meeting, the notes of a “career, non-partisan law enforcement officer who was…on detail to the Committee staff at the time” reflect the same thing.

Again, this revelation, along with the May 25 deadline set by Grassley for production of these records, is a big deal.  The walls just keep closing in on Comey and the rest of the anti-Trump cabal.  Good stuff.

Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on Winning America.

That is all.
