Waiting for Barr and Durham: The 2020 Sequel to “Waiting For Godot”

Justice Department probe into Russia investigation could extend into late summer - CNNPolitics

In the last 48 hours we have discovered the following related to Spygate/Obamagate:

– The release of a series of text messages between multiple FBI personnel revealing that they knew the spying on the Trump campaign and efforts to frame General Mike Flynn were highly illegal and that they were so concerned about their own situations that they went out and purchased personal liability insurance policies in January, 2017;

– The revelation that the sub-source for Christopher Steele’s fake Dossier on Donald Trump was in fact a Russian agent and had been deemed by the freaking FBI itself as a “national security threat” as early as 2009. Despite this knowledge, James Comey and his FBI freak show allowed the Dossier to be used as the sole basis for no fewer than 4 fraudulent applications for FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign, Transition Team and Administration;

– The fact that Hunter Biden, while his dear old Daddy was squiring him all over the world to peddle influence to various nefarious characters, received a wire transfer from the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow for $3.5 million and several other wires of several hundred thousand dollars each.

In the face of all of these revelations in a 48 hour period, our national news media yawns and continues to pretend that President Trump is the guy with a Russia problem.

It was in light of these revelations and the Democrat/media’s current “peaceful transfer of power” hoax that I wrote a piece on Thursday asking “When do we get Our Peaceful Transfer of Power for 2016?” because that is something we never received from Obama and his evil minions, who are still today running a shadow government operation designed to regain the presidency. Joe Biden is just the bumbling meat suit face of that effort.

The next question to ask is, when are any of the people involved in this never-ending coup d’etat effort going to be held accountable by William Barr, John Durham and the Department of Justice? We found out on Thursday that Durham did in fact take over the investigation of all the myriad crimes of the Clinton Foundation from do-nothing U.S. Attorney John Huber early this year, as has long been rumored. But, just as with his plodding Spygate and Obamagate investigation, we have seen no fruit from that effort, despite Barr’s promises that such fruit would be borne by the end of summer.

Oops. We are now three days past that deadline.

I had an email from a friend in DC last night saying that rumors are flying that something’s going to happen today. That would make some sense in a very DC Swampy kind of way, given that Fridays are traditionally the day when when the Swamp’s snakes and skunks love to make big news so it will dominate the Sunday talk shows. But we’ve heard those rumors many times before and have been let down each and every time. Waiting for John Durham to actually do something is like the old movie “Waiting for Godot”. We keep waiting, but Godot never arrives.

Meanwhile, we are about to have an election in less than 6 weeks and well over half of the country still does not know a thing about any of this thanks to the wall of silence by the corrupt national news media. The only way to break through that wall is for Durham and his investigators to start breaking down doors and performing some very public perp walks of high profile figures like Comey and Strzok and Brennan and Clapper, all of whom have become major TV stars over the past few years.

It would be like arresting the cast of “Love Island” – even the GenZ-ers would have to pay some attention here.

Sundance over at TheConservativeTreehouse posted a piece last night speculating that Barr and Durham have now decided that the political atmosphere has just become too toxic to add indictments into the mix. Thus, Sundance speculates that Barr is using Sidney Powell – who released the FBI text messages – and the various Senate committees – who released the revelations about Hunter Biden and Steele’s Russian sub-source – to get all of this damning information into the public domain without drawing fire in on their own position from the news media.

If true, we have a word for that kind of skullduggery: Chickenshit. Sorry for the semi-profanity, but that’s what such an effort by Barr/Durham would be.

If Durham really does have the goods on these people, and really does have hundreds of sealed indictments waiting to be unsealed, then election timing simply should not even factor into his and Barr’s equation. Because if Durham really has the goods, that means that there are treasonous criminals who planned and executed a literal coup d’ etat effort on U.S. soil roaming free as birds right now. It would also mean that half of American voters are about to cast votes for the next president without being in possession of real knowledge about any of this.

That would be an incredible travesty of justice, and a stain on their reputations that Barr and Durham could never wash off. If they really do have the goods, the only time to act is now.

I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for Godot to finally arrive, though.

That is all.

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

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

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

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

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

From a report at the New York Post:

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

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

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

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

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

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

[End]

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

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

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

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

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

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

[End]

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

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

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

That is all.

Are Barr and Durham About to Finally Drop a Hammer?

Next Monday is the last day of summer, Mr. Barr. – I note that this morning because back in August, Attorney General William Barr famously stated that John Durham’s investigation would bear some fruit before summer was over. Barr repeated that prediction in more than one interview, in fact.

Well, we’re pushing it right up to the deadline, and Durham has produced diddly squat, to use a common flyover country colloquialism. No indictments, no arrests, no midnight raids of elderly people’s homes of the sort made popular when Robert Mueller and his gang of thugs effectively ran the DOJ from May 2017 through March 2019. Not even a “Durham Report” which at this point would have value only in the sense that it would serve to inform the curious among us, which of course would exclude the entire national news media establishment.

Barr made a somewhat whiny speech at an event sponsored by Hillsdale College on Wednesday. In that speech he complained about career DOJ line prosecutors – the lowest level of prosecutor at DOJ – of often being out of control “headhunters” who go after individuals for mainly political reasons. You don’t say, Mr. AG? What tipped you off on that one?

Mr. Barr did not, however, go onto explain why, in his 20 months as AG, he has done nothing to resolve that problem. You know, like maybe fire some of those problem employees. Most likely, the answer is that he has not done that because doing it would be politically difficult. The entire corrupt media establishment would go after him with its collective hair on fire, just as these Democrat toadies will go after him and Durham should Durham ever actually do something real. Like, you know, prosecute the treasonous traitors who spent three solid years trying to execute a coup d’etat on U.S. soil.

The Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda already has its narrative in place: Any move by Barr/Durham at this point to actually attempt to exact a little real justice will be portrayed as “election interference” by the same media establishment that studiously ignored the Obama Administration’s spying on the Trump campaign and attempts to fix the election for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Those efforts went right up to Election Day that year, and once the election had come and gone, were immediately turned into an outright coup attempt.

That’s all clear on the public record now, and millions of Americans are fully aware of it. As is pretty much always the case in America today, the truth is exactly the opposite of what our Nazi-style media says: By doing nothing, Barr and Durham are in fact influencing the election in favor of the Democrats who are guilty, including Quid Pro Joe Biden himself.

Even with all of his do-nothingness thus far on Obamagate and Spygate, Barr does continue to show flashes of wanting to do the right thing. In that same speech, for example, Barr referred to the China Virus lockdowns and mask order as being “the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history” outside of slavery. Truer words were never spoken. But again, what is DOJ doing to push back on the despot governors, mayors and county judges invoking those patently unconstitutional order?

During an interview with Martha MacAllum on Fox News this week, Barr confirmed what I and others have been writing about for years now, that George Soros is subverting the American justice system by funding corrupt district attorneys who simply refuse to enforce the law. Interestingly, when Newt Gingrich made the same exact point on Fox’s “Outnumbered” show yesterday, he was silenced by the CNN-ish host and other panelists:

The New York Times has a breathless piece this morning bashing Barr for advising prosecutors to consider pursuing sedition charges against rioters and those who organized the riots during a meeting last week. In the same meeting, the Times alleges that Barr also “asked prosecutors in the Justice Department’s civil rights division to explore whether they could bring criminal charges against Mayor Jenny Durkan of Seattle for allowing some residents to establish a police-free protest zone near the city’s downtown for weeks this summer…”.

Good for him, if true. Of course, the Times story is based purely on anonymous “sources” who may or may not exist, so there is no way to know whether the news-faking paper of record just made the whole thing up.

But if it is true, it shows that Barr retains the right instincts, though he still has a problem taking action on them.

Interestingly, pretty much every other major media outlet has its own Barr-bashing report out this morning. A Google search reveals pieces including original reporting from CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, all going after the Attorney General for some instance or another of straying from the Democrat/Media preferred narrative. These are not just pieces echoing the New York Times – they all include their own themes and perceived Barr missteps.

What this looks like is a classic effort by the Nazi-style propaganda outlets to set a narrative in advance. That indicates to me that all of these corrupt media outlets believe that Barr and Durham are indeed about to drop a hammer or two soon. Maybe even on or before Barr’s self-imposed deadline of next Monday.

That would be nice.

That is all.

William Barr has two More Major Investigations to Conduct: Netflix and the Mueller Criminal Conspiracy

Barr has miles to go before he sleeps. – As if William Barr didn’t have enough on his plate, the past week saw the rise of two new major areas of investigation his department needs to conduct.

The release by Netflix of what can only be described as the streaming service’s entry into the child pornography market – a shoddy piece of trash called “Cuties” – clearly mandates that AG Barr sic his the FBI’s child porn and trafficking unit on Barack and Michelle Obama’s employer. Oh, and did you remember that Susan Rice sits on the board of directors of this company? Quite the coincidences there, huh?

Possibly the lone remaining semi-honest Democrat public figure, Tulsi Gabbard, is so disgusted by the movie that she decided to take on the leftist Perpetual Outrage Mob (which is not at all enraged about Neflix distributing child porn) by tweeting this yesterday:

The FBI arrests hundreds of oily-haired, slushie-sipping perverts every year for having images like that one on their hard drives. But let the Democrat Party-endorsed Netflix put out a film that graphically portrays 11 year-old girls being abused by adults, and, well, it’s all ok. Because, see, the Democrat Party and it corrupt toadies in the news media and entertainment industry have been trying to brainwash you into normalizing pedophilia in your society for several years now. This film is just the next step in that effort.

“Cuties,” by the way, won an award for directing last year at the Sundance Film Festival. Barr’s investigation should also be extended to the participants in that effort to distribute child porn as well.

As if that weren’t enough to put on DOJ’s plate, the revelation this week that utterly corrupt U.S. Attorney Andrew Weissman and his gang of American Gestapo thugs “accidentally” wiped at least 27 cell phones that contained their communications related to the investigation is about as blatant an instance of abuse of power and obstruction of justice as our nation has ever seen. Weissman and his charges claimed they “accidentally” wiped their phones by entering “incorrect passcodes,” a claim so lame that even the mentally declining Robert Mueller himself would be able to see through it.

To understand how literally unbelievable this excuse happens to be, check out this finding by an enterprising Twitter user who tried to replicate Weissman’s claim with his own IPhone:

Yes, friends, Weissman is claiming that he “accidentally” wiped his phone via a process that involves nine steps and takes over an hour and a half to accomplish. That’s quite the “accident” right there.

This is public fraud on a grand scale. It is as corrupt as corruption in government gets, which is no surprise given that Weissman was involved. The simple fact of the matter is that the Mueller Investigation, like operations Spygate and Obamagate before it, was an outright criminal enterprise. Every day that passes without a single indictment of any of the wrongdoers of any of those involved in those criminal enterprises only serves to destroy the public’s faith in the American system of justice.

Where are you, John Durham? What in the world are you actually doing?

That is all.

We Owe a Debt of Gratitude to Sundance at TheConservativeTreehouse

Everyone should go to TheConservativeTreehouse.com and read this piece put up by Sundance last night, detailing his briefing of lead investigator for John Durham, William Aldenberg.

No one outside of the Department of Justice knew Aldenberg’s identity as Durham’s lead investigator until Sundance revealed his name a few days ago. That had been kept secret, as has the entirety of Durham’s investigation and findings thus far.

Now, we know, thanks to Sundance’s determination and perseverance.

I don’t know who Sundance is, and frankly do not care. All I need to know about him is that he has worked tirelessly over the past four years to expose the Obama-era plot by corrupt officials within the intelligence community, the FBI and the DOJ to fix the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton, and then to expose the active coup d’etat engaged in by Obama holdovers and the Mueller Special Counsel team from 2017 through early 2019, when William Barr became Attorney General and shut that effort down for good.

Sundance’s information is always grounded in public information, always cited back to its source and thus has always been completely at odds with the seditious “Russia Collusion” that has been pushed by the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the national news media.

Not being content to merely expose the details of this still-active coup d’etat effort to his readers, Sundance determined to convey it all to key officials within the federal government in order to ensure that a) they have the full story, and b) they know that we know the truth.

Over the past several weeks, Sundance has, no doubt at great personal jeopardy, managed to meet with and brief a series of key officials within congress, the executive branch, and finally, the lead investigator for Durham himself. With his briefings complete, the officials who received them now have no real cover, no plausible way to claim they just didn’t know.

And even better, as Sundance points out, they all know that we know the truth.

So, take the time to read this terrific summary by Sundance today, and when you’re done, leave a comment thanking this great American for having the courage and persistence to lay it all out to the right people.

That is all.

Did Durham Just Lure Brennan into a Perjury Trap?

Welcome to your perjury trap, Mr. Brennan. – In a very interesting piece at RedState.com, a former prosecutor who writes under the pen name “Shipwreckedcrew” lays out a strong argument detailing his belief that Friday’s 8-hour-long interview of former Obama CIA Director John Brennan by U.S. Attorney John Durham and his investigators amounted to a classic perjury trap by the Department of Justice.

The author points to the fact that, instead of holding the interview at the more logical location at DOJ headquarters or the Hoover Building in Washington, DC, Durham chose to conduct it at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia:

Second, conducting the interview at the CIA facility is an interesting decision.  Why not question him at DOJ or FBI HQ?  The CIA is not a law enforcement agency.  John Brennan no longer works for the CIA.  Any CIA records that may have been needed over the course of the interview could have been made available in a secured facility at both those locations.

But that “records” excuse may have been the very justification given for the selection of the CIA HQ as the location for the interview.

DOJ and the FBI HQ are in Washington DC.  CIA Headquarters is in Langley, Virginia.

If you are geographically challenged, you can read the distinction as “United States District Court for the District of Columbia” v. “United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.”  If John Brennan offered any false answers to the investigators during the interview, the venue for that “false statement” crime is in the EDVA, not in DC federal court.

[End]

Pretty clever, if true. This would solve Durham’s conundrum about trying to get a conviction of Brennan from DC jury, which would be overwhelmingly made up of Democrats.

The former prosecutor also points to the interesting fact that Brennan chose to speak through his lawyer, Nick Shapiro, in a written statement, rather than just blast stuff out on his Twitter account, as he does on a regular basis:

First, it’s not Brennan’s statement.  Shapiro issued the statement to Obama Administration scribe Natasha Bertrand at Politico — guaranteed to dutifully publish anything requested of her by a former Obama era intelligence official now living in fear.  Shapiro then posted a string of eight Tweets on Twitter with the same text.

Both are devoid of any words actually spoken by Brennan — there are no quotations — nor is there any support offered for Shapiro’s claims by anyone actually in the room, such as Brennan’s attorneys.

Since when has Brennan been shy about saying anything on Twitter?  Why would Brennan go “third person” and have his thoughts about the interview expressed only in the words of someone else?  The most obvious reason is the statements are not going to be exactly accurate.  Running them through a third person builds in a level of “deniability” on Brennan’s part.

[End]

As I pointed out yesterday, Brennan has spent his entire adult life lying for a living and protecting himself from being held accountable for those lies by building walls of plausible deniability. Here, we see that lifelong habit in action.

The author also expands at length on the meaning of Shapiro’s claim that Brennan is not a “target” of the Durham investigation at this time. Here is a key passage:

So if you are not a “target” — meaning there isn’t sufficient evidence at this time to charge you with a crime — then by default you are a “witness.”

But “witnesses” can, and often do talk themselves into being “targets” during such interviews.  That was the purpose of the interview, Mr. Brennan, not because you have some wonderful insights to provide Mr. Durham and his investigators to make their job easier.

One important distinction between “target” and “witness” that is not well understood, but might be in play here, is that it is against DOJ policy to issue a grand jury subpoena to someone who is already a “target”.

A grand jury subpoena is a court order, under threat of contempt, to appear and answer questions under oath without the presence of counsel.  If a person is already a “Target”, the subpoena intrudes upon their Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and to be represented by counsel while undergoing “custodial” interrogation — they are under subpoena after all.  Witnesses before the grand jury are allowed to assert their Fifth Amendment right, but it forces them to assert that right before the grand jurors considering charges against them.  The government is not allowed to call a criminal defendant to take the stand in his trial and force him to assert his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent in front of the jury.  It is deemed prejudicial, and suggest to the jury that the defendant has something to hide.  The same principle applies to calling a “Target” in front of a grand jury and forcing them to assert their right to remain silent in front of the grand jurors without counsel present.

[End]

Oh. Again, as I pointed out yesterday, just because someone is not a “target” of an investigation today does not mean he will not become a “target” of that investigation tomorrow.

Isn’t all of that interesting?

There is much more in this piece, and you would to well to go read it in its entirety.

Now, this analysis may or may not be accurate. But if it is accurate, it is fair to point out that it would be entirely consistent with common DOJ practice in this kind of an investigation. These are the kinds of tactics that U.S. attorneys and other prosecutors deploy all the time.

What we have seen from both Durham and William Barr over the past year and a half is a consistent dedication to conducting this and other DOJ functions strictly by the book. Durham’s investigation has not employed the Gestapo-like strong-arm tactics or serial leaking of misleading or false information to the media, like we saw from the Mueller special counsel outfit.

Take it for what it’s worth, but this take on Friday’s meeting would be exactly the kind of thing we would expect to see from a by-the-book prosecutor like John Durham.

That is all.

John Durham Interviews John Brennan as the end of Summer Grows Near

If Brennan’s not a target for Durham, who is? – Former Obama CIA Director John Brennan was interviewed by John Durham and his investigators for 8 full hours on Friday as a part of Durham’s investigation into the SpyGate/ObamaGate election fixing/coup d’etat effort of 2016 – 2018.

No one really knows what was discussed during those 8 hours, but Brennan, through a spokesman, came out of it claiming to not be a target of the investigation, at least at this time. Here’s the statement:

Image

Image

As has been the case throughout the course of his investigation, Durham and his team had no comment about the day’s activities. Thus, the public is left to make of the Brennan statement what it will.

Some will think it’s Brennan giving his pals in the corrupt news media a narrative to follow. Brennan has been a professional liar throughout his entire adult life – no word how he spent his childhood, but it was probably mainly spent lying to his parents, teachers, friends and family – and there is no reason to think he would have suddenly changed that mode of operation on Friday. This is certainly a valid line of thought.

Others will take Brennan at his word and conclude Durham is just another worthless smoke screen being placed before the public by a do-nothing Department of Justice at the behest of William Barr. Given the paltry results that Durham has produced thus far, it’s hard to say that is not a fair assessment. We certainly have no evidence otherwise, other than this week’s guilty plea by corrupt ex-FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who was let off with a very light sentence.

Personally, I think the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Durham is going to target individual conspirators against whom he and Barr determine they are likely to obtain a guilty sentence from a jury in Washington, DC. Given that the District of Columbia population is roughly 96% Democrat, doing that will require them accumulating evidence that is completely irrefutable. There simply cannot be any holes in the case for the defense to exploit in order to provide the jurors with a “reasonable doubt” that they will all be desperately searching for.

Men like Brennan and James Comey and James Clapper, who rise to the very highest levels of their respective organizations, are able to do that in large part because they are highly skilled at deflecting blame and setting up plausible deniability that insulates them from internal controversies that get people who work for them fired. They are extremely adept at setting up scapegoats and ensuring the lines of damning evidence never rise to their level.

Thus, it is fairly likely that Brennan is not a target of this investigation at this time, and that Durham is focused on obtaining indictments of or cooperation from smaller fish like Clinesmith, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr and Nellie Ohr. If he is really good at pressuring these smaller fish – and his career at DOJ indicates that he is quite skilled in this area – he may be able to get one or more of them to turn in order to protect themselves. That may well have already happened with Clinesmith, although the sentencing memo entered by DOJ in his case did not indicate as much.

The cooperation of someone like Strzok or Page might enable Durham to pierce the veil enough to get at Strok’s direct boss at the time, Bill Priestap. Cooperation from Priestap might enable Durham to go after his direct boss at the time, Andrew McCabe. Cooperation from McCabe might enable Durham to get a really big fish like Comey, and Comey could, finally, lead to Brennan.

But without any such cooperation, if these little fish are willing to let themselves be gobbled up while taking one for the treasonous team, then it is likely that those of us hoping for some real justice in this case will walk away highly disappointed at the final outcome.

Like it or not, this is how these investigations go. There is literally no reason at all to believe a single word Brennan’s spokesman had to say yesterday. But until we see some real results from Durham in terms of indictments and prosecution, there is also no real reason to think Brennan is a target at this moment in time.

Barr promised action by the “end of summer.” As of today, that is exactly one month away. Durham has 31 days to assure half of the U.S. population that justice still exists in our country. He can either become a true American hero, or prove he is just another Deep State snake.

Stay tuned.

Thursday News Roundup: Durham, Barr Claim a Scalp, Portland Rioters Now Attacking Hospitals

Barack Obama, the environmental preside…wait, what? – In yet another prime example of the reality that Democrat hypocrisy knows no bounds, Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, the man who spent 8 long years preaching the Climate Change fantasy, has now been revealed to be intentionally ignoring environmental laws during the construction of his $9 million home in Hawaii:

Scientists say that seawalls are the primary cause of beach loss in Hawaii and estimate that 20% of beach length in the state has been lost within the last century.

While modern laws have been developed to protect the state’s beaches, they have failed to do so as a result of as real estate loopholes, such as easements, often used to bypass the policies.

One might think that Nesbitt and Obama, who made environmental protection a major platform of his presidency, would be different and take the environmentally friendly action no matter the cost, but that appears not to be the case.

Permits obtained by ProPublica reportedly show that developers, after having torn down the property’s mansion, are planning to construct three homes, two pools, and a security perimeter on the property.

State officials confirmed to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and ProPublica that the Obamas will be the compound’s future occupants once the project is complete.

[End]

You just could never make these people up. And who in their right mind would want to?

Durham claims his first scalp – will others follow? – Attorney General William Barr promised a Durham “report” and other actions by “the end of summer,” which is September 22. We will know by then whether Durham has been conducting a real investigation intent on exacting real justice on real criminals, or whether it is been just another DOJ distraction.

On Wednesday, Durham extracted the promised guilty plea from little fish Kevin Clinesmith, the leftist activist FBI lawyer who falsified an email in order to defraud the FISA court and obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump administration. The plea agreement for one count of lying to investigators carries with it a maximum sentence of 6 months in prison and fine of $250,000, chicken feed for a guy who willingly participated in an active coup d’etat effort on U.S. soil.

If this is all there is to the Durham investigation, both he and Barr will go down as just a couple more corrupt footnotes to American history.  It’s their choice.

But Barr is most certainly not Jeff Sessions. – He is doing real work, unlike his useless predecessor in the job, and he provided a good example of that in a press conference yesterday that was largely ignored by the corrupt news media.

At that presser, Barr detailed more than 1,000 arrests and over 200 prosecutions under federal statues related to DOJ’s Operation Legend. Here’s an excerpt from a report at Fox News:

At least 217 people have been charged with a federal crime, and more than 1,000 arrests have been made in major metropolitan cities since the Department of Justice launched Operation Legend in July, U.S. Attorney General William Barr announced on Wednesday.

Nearly 400 firearms have been seized by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Barr launched Operation Legend on July 8 as “a sustained, systematic and coordinated law enforcement initiative in which federal law enforcement agencies work in conjunction with state and local law enforcement officials to fight violent crime,” the DOJ said in a release.

It was named in honor of 4-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was shot and killed while he slept in the early morning of June 29 in Kansas City, Mo. Last week, a Jackson County prosecutor announced second-degree murder charges against his suspected killer, 22-year-old Ryson Ellis, who was being held in Tulsa County Jail.

“LeGend is a symbol of the many hundreds of innocent lives that have been taken in the recent upsurge of crime in many of our urban areas,” Barr said at a press conference in Kansas City. “His life mattered and the lives of all of those victims matter. His name should be remembered and his senseless death, like those of all the other innocent victims in this recent surge, should be unacceptable to all Americans.”

Barr said the federal government has dispatched to nine U.S. cities more than 1,000 additional agents from the FBI, ATF, Drug Enforcement Administration and U.S. Marshals Service to work shoulder to shoulder with state and local partners on homicide and assault squads to crack cases.

The government has also allocated $78.5 million in grants to support additional police positions, hire more prosecutors and improve technology to solve firearms crimes.

“We saw one result of those efforts last week when Kansas City Police arrested the suspected murderer of LeGend,” Barr said. “This arrest will not bring LeGend back but it will make his case an example of how we can come together to take violent criminals off the street and to make our communities safer.”

These are great results, but at the end of the day, local law enforcement is mainly up to local officials, and no DOJ has the resources to make up for all of the damage to America’s great cities being done by communist Democrat mayors and city councils. But you can’t blame Barr for not trying. Again, he is not Jeff Sessions.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – Speaking of one of America’s dying, communist-Democrat run cities, citizens in Portland suffered through their 82nd straight night of violent riots overnight Wednesday, rioting that is still ongoing as I write this piece early Thursday morning.

Here are some of the highlights, provide as always by real journalist Andy Ngo, who does his best every day to overcome the Soviet-style wall of silence from the corrupt corporate news media:

And on and on it goes.

Notably, not a single speaker at the communist Democrat Convention has uttered a word of condemnation of these rioters. Which is not at all surprising, given that domestic terrorists are in fact organized and funded by front groups for George Soros and the communist Democrat Party.

That is all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Attorney 2: “I am numb.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

Employee: “That is not so….”

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

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

[End]

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is all.
