Watch John Brennan Desperately try to Set a Favorable Narrative, and Fail

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The cornered rats are really scurrying for cover this week, and ex-CIA Director Dar Adol, er, John Brennan provided today’s best example in an interview with MSNBC’s favorite pet fake Republican, former Jeb! Bush operative Nicolle Wallace. During the course of this brief interview, Brennan admits that the CIA was indeed “coordinating closely” with the FBI in its spying operation that targeted Trump Campaign officials, and continued to push the narrative that none of this obvious spying was in fact “spying.” *sigh*

Here’s the clip:

As a service to those of you who still like to read stuff, I spent 20 minutes of my life transcribing this clip verbatim. I’ve also inserted comments contained within [ ] noting Brennan’s body language, which clearly indicates he is lying throughout this clip and is very self-conscious and frankly transparent about it. Here you go.

======================================

Nicolle Wallace: Who uses the word “spying” to describe lawful surveillance in a counterintelligence probe, other than Sean Hannity [snicker,snicker]?

Brennan: [clears throat] um,uh well William Barr, uh, clearly, and uh I think Donald Trump as well.

Wallace: Why?

Brennan: uh, well, [closed eyes, hunched shoulders] I think they’re clearly trying [smiling with corners of mouth turned down] to, uh, imply, and to really [hunched shoulders, tucked chin, wiggling in seat] you know, uh,uh, indicate that there was uh, misuse [nods head, affirming the misuse] of authorities…that was not the case [nods head again].

Does CIA ‘spy’? Yes. [nods head, affirming the spying] uh, do we spy against our foreign adversaries? Yes. [nods again] Do we spy against domestic individuals? No, we do not [nods head repeatedly during this, indicating deception]. We cuw…we worked very closely [hunched shoulders] with the FBI[he just admitted CIA coordinated with the FBI to spy on the Trump Campaign], and when the Russians were trying to interfere in that election, and to change the outcome of it in their favor, we, the CIA and FBI, worked very collaboratively so that we could have that ability to see what the Russians were doing and who they were working with.

So when William Barr said ‘spying’, it clearly indicated that there was something that was inappropriate, if not illegal [nods head]. Nobody used the term spying when they’re referring to legitimate, predicated, authorized investigative actions that were part of the FBI. [Note how he leaves out the CIA in that passage.]

Wallace: Why do you think he uses it? Is it taunting, does it signal to the intelligence community that he’s coming for you? Does it signal that he’s watched too much Sean Hannity? What does that word mean inside the intelligence community?

Brennan: Well I think he’s playing to Mr. Trump. I think throughout that testimony it was clear that what Mr. Barr was doing was try to say things and to try to characterize things [rapid eye-blinking throughout this] in a manner that was consistent with what Mr. Trump has said, but also very supportive of it. So, eh, and wh…and when he responded to Kamala Harris and others on these issues [looks down and to the left] he thought about it and they asked him, well, was there spying? Well, well yeah, there was.[!]

Well, to me that really suggests that he already is [hunches shoulders, wiggles in seat, looks down and to the left] looking at things that w..uh..[hunches shoulders, nods head] really did not happen. It was predicated, it was legal, it was authorized [oh, so it DID happen?]. So if they want to take a look at the FISA practices [shakes head throughout] look at other things? [hunches shoulders, shakes head] uh, that’s legitimate. There is a question about whether or not there’s gonna be all these competing investigations and how that’s gonna suck the air out of that whole environment [oh, like the past two years for example?] But it’s clear in my mind [looking down and to the left] that what Mr. Barr was suggesting was that the FBI [and the CIA?] was engaged in politically-motivated spying against one of the candidates.

=================================

So, over the last 10 days or so, we have seen Sally Yates, James Comey, James Baker, James Clapper and now John Brennan making very public efforts to create a favorable narrative for their behavior during 2016. This is being done in advance of the pending public release of the Horowitz Report on FISA abuse, and amid news of the advance of AG William Barr’s own investigation into the origins of the spying operation against the Trump Campaign. We’ve also seen Comey and Rod Rosenstein sniping at one another in public, and Comey and Brennan pointing fingers at each other over which of them insisted upon including the Steele Dossier in their FISA applications.

This is clearly a coordinated effort among these likely suspects, and may well indicate that a draft of the final Horowitz report began circulating about two weeks ago, sending the people named in it into a panic.

It seems to me that someone really should remind all of these skunks that they have the right to remain silent.

That is all.

Don’t Give Rosenstein a Pass Just Because He Went off on Comey

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This video clip of Rod Rosenstein riffing on Teenage Drama Queen James Comey has been making the rounds of Twitter and the fake news media all day:

Very clever. Very funny, in that sniffling, slimy Rosenstein kind of way. He nails Comey’s behavior and low character, and that’s great. So, I got no problem with that.

I do, however, have a problem with the conservative commentariate turning this into a reason to make Rosenstein into some sort of a hero on all of this. Because Rod Rosenstein is the farthest thing from a hero.

Rosenstein made these remarks in the context of his being the guy who wrote the famous memo to President Donald Trump recommending Comey be fired. For that commendable act, he is certainly to be praised to some extent.

But let’s remember several things about Rosenstein, including his reasons for recommending Comey be fired, which was basically that he didn’t like the way Comey grandstanded throughout the election campaign, usurping decisions and powers that should have been reserved to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Of course, Lynch was so corrupt that she wasn’t going to make those decisions in any event, but Rosenstein was correct to say that that did not convey the right to make them onto Comey.

Let’s also remember what parts of Comey’s conduct that Rosenstein was NOT concerned about. Despite having full knowledge at that point about Comey’s disgraceful corruption of the “investigation” into the Clinton email scandal, Rosenstein cited no objection. Despite his full knowledge then of Comey’s mounting an effort to spy on the Trump Campaign and Trump Transition team (remember that Trump was fully aware of these things as early as late November, 2016), Rosenstein cited no objection.

Despite having full knowledge by then of the heinous abuse of the FISA process by Comey’s FBI, Rosenstein cited no objection to any of that. Matter of fact, Rosenstein was so unconcerned about the use of the fraudulent Steele Dossier as the basis for those FISA warrants – a usage that Comey himself admitted to in sworn congressional testimony – that Rosenstein actually signed the third extension application himself!

Next, Rosenstein made the likely illegal decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate allegations of “Trump/Russia Collusion” despite the conspicuous absence of any underlying crime, a requirement of such appointments.  His pick to lead the probably-illegal Witch Hunt was Robert Mueller, a man who is not only a close friend of Rosenstein himself, but also a close friend of Comey, a key witness to any such investigation, the clearest conflicts of interest possible, and clearly disqualifying.

Rosenstein then signed not only one, but two scoping letters to Mueller that he has since worked feverishly to keep out of public view, most likely because those letters also contain clear violations of the special counsel statutes. He then spent a year and a half allowing Mueller to destroy the lives of dozens of American citizens and basically conduct himself as if he were head of an American Gestapo.

There’s much, much more here, but we’ve been through all of this several times before.

Bottom line, let’s all have a good laugh at Comey’s expense, since he is even more despicable than Rosenstein. But let’s don’t forget what a despicable snake Rosenstein truly is while we’re chuckling.

That is all.

William Barr Takes the Next Big Step

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

Who is John Durham and why should you care? – Good question, and certainly not one I’d ever thought about before last night. That was when the New York Times published an article that appears to be actually true – who’d ‘a thunk it? – containing the news that Attorney General William Barr has appointed Mr. Durham, the U.S. Attorney from Connecticut, to oversee the origins of the Obama Administration’s multi-faceted spying operation targeting the Trump Campaign

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William P. Barr has assigned the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut to examine the origins of the Russia investigation, according to two people familiar with the matter, a move that President Trump has long called for but that could anger law enforcement officials who insist that scrutiny of the Trump campaign was lawful.

John H. Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut, has a history of serving as a special prosecutor investigating potential wrongdoing among national security officials, including the F.B.I.’s ties to a crime boss in Boston and accusations of C.I.A. abuses of detainees.

His inquiry is the third known investigation focused on the opening of an F.B.I. counterintelligence investigation during the 2016 presidential campaign into possible ties between Russia’s election interference and Trump associates.

The department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, is separately examining investigators’ use of wiretap applications and informants and whether any political bias against Mr. Trump influenced investigative decisions. And John W. Huber, the United States attorney in Utah, has been reviewing aspects of the Russia investigation. His findings have not been announced.

Additionally on Capitol Hill, Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said he, too, intends to review aspects of law enforcement’s work in the coming months. And Republicans conducted their own inquiries when they controlled the House, including publicizing details of the F.B.I.’s wiretap use.

[End excerpt]

Lots to unpack here.

First, if you’re worried that the assignment of the investigation to Durham is just another head-fake/delaying tactic by a corrupt Justice Department, that concern is well-founded given all the previous head-fakes and delaying tactics we’ve seen over the past couple of years. After all, a full year and a half has gone by since feckless former AG Jeff Sessions said he was assigning Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber to conduct an investigation into many aspects of the Russia Collusion fantasy, and we have yet to hear boo out of him or see any real indication he’s done a damn thing in that regard.

But of course, that was Jeff Sessions and now we have William Barr in the AG job. Hopefully, that makes a difference. Barr was always going to assign this investigation to someone under his supervision – it was either that or appoint another special counsel to do it, and assigning it to a U.S. Attorney gives Barr fuller control over the direction of the process. That’s either a good or a bad thing depending entirely on what Barr’s real intentions are.

Barr has certainly given us every indication he is a real AG focused on enforcing the rule of law and bringing the real bad actors in all of this to justice, which is why we have seen all the Democrats and their media toadies in such a panic in recent weeks. Justice is the last thing those people want to see.

At any rate, any major undertaking like this requires a focal point to lead it, and Durham is Barr’s pick to do it. It is encouraging that Durham was originally brought into the Justice Department during the Reagan Administration in 1982, and was appointed to his current position by Donald Trump in 2017. It is also encouraging that he has not been a creature of the Washington, DC Swamp, serving the majority of his career in Connecticut with a four year period as the Acting U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia from 2008-12.

If you’re concerned that this will be another Huber-like year-and-a-half-long head-fake that gets us to the November, 2020 election with nothing to show for it, there is also reason for optimism that that won’t be the case. Given the flurry of self-serving media appearances we have seen from likely suspects like James Comey, James Baker, John Brennan and Sally Yates over the past couple of weeks, it appears likely that the upcoming report on FISA abuse from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been making the rounds and might well contain criminal referrals.

Yeah, Horowitz took a powder on doing that in last year’s report on the FBI’s conduct of the Clinton email investigation, but that was when Sessions was AG. Hopefully, the presence of a real AG will embolden the IG’s office to do the right thing. It’s easier to confront powerful people when you know you have powerful people backing you up.

Let’s say that happens, and let’s recognize that Durham will also be armed with multiple criminal referrals from various congressional committees that have been issued to the Justice Department over the last year. Armed with the results of the multiple Horowitz investigations and all the data accumulated by the congressional investigations over the past two years, Durham should be able to move to the indictment and prosecution phase fairly rapidly if that is his real goal here.

Let’s be painfully honest: We know who the bad actors in all of this really were. The public record already accumulated is crystal clear on this. All that has been lacking to this point is a real Attorney General and a set of diligent prosecutors who were willing to act on behalf of the public interest and uphold the rule of law.

With Rod Rosenstein’s exit from DOJ, the last of the known obstructionists to justice is now gone. Well, except for FBI Director Christopher Wray, anyway. All we the people can do now is wait and pray they haven’t been replaced by a new set of obstructionists.

It won’t take long to figure that out.

The Deep State Legacy of Rod Rosenstein

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

The legacy of Rod Rosenstein is a complicated one, and one that, as we will discuss later in this piece, is far from through being compiled.

Some conspiracy theorists on Twitter and some fringe websites like to portray Rosenstein as an American hero, a Machiavellian schemer who makes Machiavelli himself look like a novice in his tireless efforts to protect President Donald Trump as he out-conspiracies the Deep State Cabal that operated within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 and 2017. In this scenario, every action Rosenstein has taken since coming into the Trump Administration as Deputy Attorney General in early 2017 has been part of an incredibly complex “Slow Walker” plan schemed up by Donald Trump even before the 2016 elections, a plan that Rosenstein has spent the last two-plus years carrying out.

It’s all a lot of “stuff and nonsense,” to quote the late, great James J. Kilpatrick. Rod Rosenstein is a bad guy. A very, very bad guy, and unlike operation Slow Walker, there is a ton of very public evidence to support that assessment.

For starters, this is a guy who in one week in May 2017 wrote a three-page memo to President Trump detailing myriad reasons why then-FBI Director and current Teen Drama Queen James Comey needed to be fired, and then the very next week turned around and appointed his pal and Comey’s best friend, Robert Mueller, to become a “special counsel” partly to investigate whether Comey’s firing amounted to “obstruction of justice.” The Rosenstein-as-hero people want you to believe that was all a highly patriotic act schemed up by Trump himself.

Holy crap.

Rosenstein is a guy who wrote not one, but two scoping memos for Mueller that allowed the “special counsel” to basically function as a completely out-of-control Witch Hunt, a completely open-ended  “investigation” with no limitations or legal side bars. Rosenstein then spent the next year and a half working feverishly to ensure that neither of those two memos could be made public. We haven’t seen them to this day.

Rosenstein is a guy who actively pushed the idea of having President Trump removed from office under the scope of the 25th Amendment, and at one point volunteered to wear a wire to meetings with the President in an effort to entrap him in some bad act, according to at least two people who have testified under oath to congress. The pushers of Operation Slow Walker want you to believe that Trump planned that, too.

In the Operation Slow Walker scheme, even Jeff Sessions’ idiotic move to recuse himself and set Rosenstein up as the de facto Attorney General was all just a part of Trump’s “5D Chess” conspiracy to entrap the Deep State. I’m not kidding. In that role as de facto Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein sat by and did nothing as Robert Mueller hired a staff of 19 leftwing Clinton/Obama hacks. Rosenstein then sat by as Mueller essentially functioned as Chief of the American Gestapo, allowing his activist staff to order the FBI to knock down doors in the middle of the night and terrorize elderly American citizens who had yet to be accused of any crime.

Rosenstein sat idly by as Mueller and his staff bullied, threatened and destroyed the financial life of a real American hero, General Mike Flynn, who had spent his entire adult life serving his country. Rosenstein, the hero of Operation Slow Walker, sat idly by as Mueller and his band of Gestapo thugs convinced a judge to sentence Paul Manafort – a near-70 year-old man accused of financial crimes having zero to do with “Russia Collusion” – to month after month of solitary confinement.

Rosenstein sad idly by as his buddy Mueller and his thugs deployed no fewer than 37 FBI agents armed with kevlar vests, automatic weapons, tear gas and even – I’m not kidding here – TANKS in the wee hours of the morning to arrest a thin, frail senior citizen named Roger Stone, terrorizing Stone’s wife who suffers from frail health in the process. Stone’s alleged “crime”? Having communications via email with Julian Assange. Not kidding.

This is the “hero” of Operation Slow Walker. What a load of horse manure.

Rosenstein was able to operate with impunity while the useless, neutered Jeff Sessions was in the AG’s office. It is crystal clear that, had Sessions remained in that office, the Mueller operation would still be going today with no end in sight. But Sessions’ resignation (he was really fired, let’s be honest) put a leash on Rosenstein and Mueller when Matthew Whitaker assumed the office as Acting AG. That leash got tugged hard when William Barr was named as the permanent AG.

Rosenstein’s “resignation” was intentionally timed to take place after the issuance of the Mueller report, so that he would be there to support Barr’s assessment of it, and before the issuance of the coming FISA Abuse report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Barr needs Rosenstein as a witness in any criminal cases that arise from the Horowitz report – Rosenstein was also the signatory on one of the fraudulent FISA applications – something Rosenstein could not do if he were still employed at DOJ.

Coincidentally, Rosenstein’s final day in office will also come two years to the week after he wrote the 3-page memo recommending Comey’s firing.

This guy’s no hero, he’s just another deep state skunk, like his pals Comey and Mueller. The public evidence indicates he was a willing and active, leading participant in an effort to effect a coup d’etat on American soil, an effort that thankfully failed. Once Barr was named Attorney General, Rosenstein likely made a deal to save his own skin, and is probably now working as a cooperating witness in order to save his pension.

Rod Rosenstein was the architect and enabler of the Mueller Witch Hunt, nothing less, nothing more. Our government is well rid of him, but we will most likely be seeing and hearing much more from him in the future in an entirely different role.

Ta ta for now, Rod.

Rod Rosenstein, Architect of the Mueller Witch Hunt, Formally Resigns

Rod Rosenstein submitted his formal resignation letter to President Donald Trump today. Here’s the full letter:

So, the architect, the enabler of the two-year national nightmare that was the Mueller Witch Hunt will be out of office effective May 11. It will be up to Attorney General William Barr to clean up the mess Mr. Rosenstein leaves behind.

Good riddance.

Barr’s Release of the Mueller Report Closes Act I of Trump’s Three-Act Play

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

Today, the curtain closes on Act I. – Attorney General William Barr will release what the Washington Post describes as a “lightly redacted” version of the Mueller Report this morning, and Democrats are already going berserk. Because of course they are. They’re Democrats – that’s what they do.

Prominent congressional Dems like Jabba the Nadler, Mad Maxine Waters, Da Nang Dick Blumenthal and Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff all rushed to the nearest TV camera last night to squeal about the fact that Mr. Barr will hold a press conference prior to releasing the report, something every other AG in American history would also have done. The Democrat talking points – naturally echoed by prominent fake journalists like the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman on Twitter – contend that “the Mueller Report should speak for itself” and that the AG is attempting to usurp congress’s solemn duty to interpret the report for the American people.

Meh.

Here is the real reason why the Democrats and their fake media co-conspirators are going nuts about Barr’s press conference: Because oily Rod Rosenstein will be standing there right next to him in full endorsement of the process Barr has taken with the report. Also because Barr will no doubt inform the American people on live television that both Rosenstein and Mueller his own self participated in making the proper redactions in the report before it became public.

The Democrats and media who have spent the better part of three years outright lying every day about their Russia Collusion fantasy can’t stand to have this open, transparent conveyance of real information about Mueller’s report. After all, Rosenstein was their guy, the fixer, the man who appointed Mueller in the first place for no justifiable reason, the enabler who wrote not one, but two scoping memos authorizing Mueller to take his most-likely illegal Witch Hunt in any direction he wanted to pursue.

Oily Rod was the guy who held those previous Friday afternoon press conferences defending the various indictments of Russian ham sandwiches, doing his best to pretend that the spending of a couple million dollars creating a bunch of fake Twitter accounts was somehow an existential threat to the greatest and strongest nation ever conceived by mankind. Rosenstein was the guy who refused to intervene early on when it became obvious Mueller was stacking his staff with a bunch of corrupt Obama/Clinton activists rather than a balanced team of professional lawyers, the “supervisor” who never lifted a finger to curb Mueller’s rampant, heinous employment of Gestapo-like tactics.

For two solid years, Rod Rosenstein was the man who the lying Democrats and fake news media assured all Americans was a stand-up guy, a true hero who was doing his best to rid the Republic of the Bad Orange Man in the White House. To have this same man, this ostensible leftist hero, now stand before the assembled TV cameras in tacit endorsement of Barr’s interpretation of the Mueller Report and acknowledgement of his and Mueller’s own roles in making the redactions from it in order to protect the rights of American citizens who were interviewed during the grand jury processes and other perfectly valid reasons amounts to a complete and total debunking of the fake media’s fake narrative on this fantasy.

Democrat politicians and fake journalists are the equivalent of political vampires: Transparency is their sunlight; truth is their garlic; they recoil from honesty exactly the same way Count Dracula recoils from the Christian Cross.

Regardless of the squealing from the collection of Star Wars bar scene characters who currently chair committees in the House of Representatives, Barr will hold his presser at 9:30 ET and release the redacted report at 11:00 ET today, because that is what he has promised to do. This is a man who has made a habit of doing exactly what he promised congress he would do in his confirmation hearings since taking office, a real Attorney General who is playing everything strictly by the book. If that makes congress unhappy, so be it – Barr doesn’t appear to much care what politicians of either party think.

The positive thing for the fake news media is that CNN and MSNBC will temporarily regain some of the massive audience loss they have suffered over the past month, since their Russia Collusion fantasy came up a crapper. After all, the Mueller report was written by a bunch of Democrat activists, and will certainly portray President Trump in the most negative light possible, so we will have a couple of weeks of media and Democrat-fed hysteria over the revival of their Russia Collusion corpse before the dead story gets overtaken by other, real current events.

For real Americans who actually love their country, the best part about finally getting to this day is that it in reality closes the curtain on Act I of what will ultimately become the three-act play of the Trump presidency. The curtain will next come up on Act II, which will begin with the issuance of the report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on the rampant abuse of the FISA process that took place throughout 2016 and into 2017, as Obama officials within the DOJ and FBI furiously tried to prevent Trump from winning the election and then attempted to stage a coup d’etat after he took office.

From there, Act II will proceed to the revelation of what, if anything, Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber has been doing over the last 18 months, since former AG Jeff Sessions claimed he had assigned Huber to investigate all the FBI/DOJ Cabal’s shenanigans during the 2016/17 time frame. After that revelation, Act II may or may not proceed to prosecutions of some or all of the Cabal’s participants. That will again be up to Mr. Barr.

Act III will dawn in August 2020 with the re-nomination of President Trump by the GOP and the nomination of one fraud or another by the Democrats in a race that will result in Trump’s re-election. That final act will continue through the entire four years of Trump’s second term in office, and will conclude with a final scene of hundreds of pussy-hat-wearing activists and minor Hollywood celebrities screaming and crying on the National Mall on January 20, 2025, exactly as the play opened on January 20, 2017.

This unlikely tragicomedy was apparently all preordained, and no amount of bluster and squealing from the stuck pigs who run the Democrat Party and our fake news media can change the inexorable progression of its plot lines. So the best thing the rest of us can do is just sit back and enjoy the spectacle of it all.

After all, are you not entertained?

The Times and Post go Right Back to Faking the Russia Collusion News

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, it’s like 2017 all over again. – With readership no doubt drastically declining in the wake of the issuance of a Mueller report that clears President Donald Trump, the news-fakers at the Washington Post and the New York Times decided last night to go back to their tried and true tactic of publishing fake reports based on unidentified and possibly even non-existent “sources.”

The Times started the night’s fake-fest with a front page story headlined “Some on Mueller’s Team Say Report Was More Damaging Than Barr Revealed”.

Wow! “Some”, huh?  Good ol’ “Some”? You mean the same “Some” on Mueller’s team who have been the fake “source” for all of the fake news stories the Times has published related to the Russia Collusion fantasy over the last two and a half years?  That “Some”?

Oh, but it gets better. Here’s how the lead paragraph in the story informs the reader who this “Some” really is:

“Some of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigators have told associates that Attorney General William P. Barr failed to adequately portray the findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated, according to government officials and others familiar with their simmering frustrations.”

Ah, according to “government officials” – Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler, perhaps? – and “others familiar with their simmering frustrations”, is it? Who might those “others” be? Staffers for Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler, maybe? Note that we now have anonymous sources quoting even deeper anonymous sources. Maybe we should call them “double secret” anonymous sources.  Holy crap.

Or maybe these “sources” really don’t exist at all – there is literally no way for the reader to know. Why, you just have to trust the honesty and professionalism of the news-fakers who wrote and approved this story, even though they are the very same writers and editors who have published so many other blatantly false, easily-debunked fake news stories throughout the Trump Administration.

My goodness.

Not to be outdone, the news-fakers at the Washington Post belched out an equally ambiguously-sourced story of their own that I’m not even going to go into in any detail because it is a waste of my time and yours. Suffice it to say that it’s the same basic plot as the Times story with the same failure to identify anyone who served as the reporters’ actual source for the fairy tale.

Back to the Times story for a second: Rush Limbaugh landed on one of the most outrageous pieces of it during his first hour today that deserves repeating here: “It was also unclear how widespread the vexation is among the special counsel team, which included 19 lawyers, about 40 F.B.I. agents and other personnel.”

Think about that for a second:  FORTY FBI agents were tasked to the Mueller fake investigation, an effort Mueller and Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray knew was fake from day one. FORTY FBI agents who could have been tasked to preventing terrorist attacks; FORTY FBI agents who could have been tasked with identifying potential school shooters before they killed a bunch of kids; FORTY FBI agents would could have been investigating something real, like the mob racket known as the Clinton Foundation. FORTY FBI agents who could have been working on putting deep state creeps like Peter Strzok and John Brennan and James Clapper and Jim Comey in prison.

Instead, they were all working on helping Mueller and his team of Clinton/Obama hacks dummy up a case for impeachment of the sitting, duly-elected President of the United States.

I focus on this because it was just a week ago that I wrote a piece here titled “The Misplaced Priorities of the FBI and DOJ Protect the Deep State Seditionists,” and here we have the New York Times delivering demonstrable proof of exactly how that works.

Thanks for proving my point, you news-faking hacks.

The Democrat/Media Propaganda Complex Moves the Goal Posts in the Wake of Mueller’s Failed Coup

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

The talkin’ points, they are a-changin’… – Ok, so here’s the drill: Now that Robert Mueller has failed to carry out the coup d’etat that the Democrats and the entirety of our fake news media have hoped and dreamed of for two solid years now, the goal posts have shifted.

Now, Robert Mueller is a bad guy, a guy who both Bug-eyed Adam Schiff and Jabba The Nadler have promised to subpoena to appear before their own committees, which will now lead the Witch Hunt into the future at the behest of San Fran Nan and the editorial boards at the New York Times and Washington Post. Furthermore, the Attorney General of the United States – William Barr – and his Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, are now the two newest subjects to be portrayed as Russian agents by our fake news media. A regular Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale (all you Millennials will have to Google that reference), these two.

That nasty odor you found wafting from your television screens anytime you were tuned into MSNBC or CNN this weekend was a combination of sulphur and desperation. These people are literally doing the devil’s work against our nation’s survival, and their rising panic level came across the tube in spades as the weekend progressed, peaking on Sunday afternoon with the realization that Bob Mueller, the man on whom they had counted to be their collective savior, turned out to be not quite up to the job.

So the talking points had to shift, the goal posts must now move, and they all, acting almost as a single evil organism (I smell a remake of “The Blob” coming soon), latched onto the insignificant fact that Mueller did not outright “clear” President Donald Trump of “obstruction of justice” as their next thin lifeline. Since Mueller did not “clear” Trump, but the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General (a Trump hater who we now know without any doubt at all literally attempted to frame the President) did, why, they must be acting on behalf of PUTIN!!!!!!

See the logic? No? Ok, neither do I.

Look, these are Democrats and Democrat media activists we’re talking about here – logic has no place in anything they do. If these people were vampires (and how can we really be sure that Brian Stelter and Katie Tur aren’t?), logic would be their garlic and truth their sunlight.

But, just for the sake of argument, the glaring problems with their new line of talking points are obvious:

  • Robert Mueller was acting as a prosecutor. Prosecutors do not “clear” people – they either find evidence of wrongdoing that would support a prosecution, or they do not. Mueller did not.
  • The entire case for “obstruction” against President Trump originates with a presumption that he fired bad cop James Comey – an action even Rosenstein supported, and which every Democrat in Washington had called for – in order to prevent Comey from investigating Trump’s “collusion” with Putin.
  • But Mueller found zero evidence that any such “collusion” took place – said so right there in his report.
  • So, how in the hell would anyone “obstruct justice” by trying to cover up a crime that, by the prosecutor’s own admission, DID NOT HAPPEN?

Thus, the lack of any evidence of obstruction is not a mere opinion expressed by Barr and Rosenstein, it is a metaphysical fact.  Period. Hard stop.

Let’s just close with film of the celebration in the White House last night…

 

 

That is all. For now.

What to Expect as the Mueller Witch Hunt Comes to a Blessed End

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

Man, no one could have seen this coming. Oh, wait…. – Way back in September, the Campaign Update informed its loyal readers (thanks to all of you) that the signs were obvious that Gestapo Chief…er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller was systematically going about the process of wrapping things up. We speculated at the time that it would likely take several months for Mueller to complete the process, given that he he likely still had more ham sandwich indictments to pursue, was still at the time hoping to personally interview President Donald Trump, and would want to give his team of loyal Clinton/Obama hacks plenty of time to secure other employment.

Well, it turns out that that process is going to end up taking right at six months, at least if all the fake news media reports out there this morning are to be believed. Yes, it’s your basic crap shoot, given that the first outlet to report the story was CNN, and given that CNN’s report is based only on “people familiar with the plans,” but it seems likely that this is the rare occasion that the fake news network is getting something right.

There are several reasons that this timing would make sense:

First, as mentioned above, it has been obvious for six months that Mueller has been working on wrapping things up, despite all the fake media reporting and Democrat wishful thinking to the contrary;

Second, Tuesday’s announcement that oily Rod Rosenstein would be leaving the DOJ in early-to-mid-March means that Mueller’s days are certainly numbered in any event;

Third, the assumption of office on Tuesday by William Barr, President Trump’s first real Attorney General who isn’t stupidly and needlessly recused from a damn thing means that there is a new sheriff in town looking over Mueller’s corrupt shoulder, and he most likely doesn’t much care for what he’s seeing.

So, Mueller is no doubt feverishly working to finish up whatever “report” he’s been working on and will in all likelihood send it over to Mr. Barr next week, if not sooner.

When that happens, Barr is under no obligation whatsoever to issue any summary of the report, or indeed make a single word from Mueller’s work public. During his confirmation hearing, Barr did semi-commit to making some sort of “summary of findings” public, but he has no legal obligation to do so, and that can take any form he deems appropriate. It is his job and his job alone to make that decision.

Regardless of what Barr decides to do with Mueller’s “report,” we should expect to see a series of utterly false reports published by the Usual Suspects in the fake news media – can you say New York Times and Washington Post and CNN and MSNBC? – containing all manner of wild allegations targeting President Trump, based purely on anonymous sources. Because that is what our fake news media does.

We can also expect Democrats in congress and/or running for president to make their own wild claims, because that is what they do, too. They’re all reciting from the same narrative the media is using, after all.

But in the end, Mueller will still be holding a big, smelly bag of nothing where President Trump is concerned. There is no “Russia collusion” and there never was.

The best news about Mueller wrapping his nonsense up is that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will now be free to issue his own report on his two-year investigation into the rampant abuse of the FISA process committed by the Deep State cabal that operated within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 and much of 2017. Horowitz has been delaying his own report, waiting on Mueller to finish.

Now that we have a real attorney general governing this process instead of Rosenstein, perhaps Mr. Horowitz will be free to issue his real findings this time, and not the watered-down slop that characterized his report last year on the Clinton email scandal.

Wouldn’t that be a welcome change?  We can only hope.

Words alone cannot describe the pure awesomeness of this Twitter meme… – you just have to watch it for yourself. (Warning – it’s your basic PG-13 video):

That is all.
