Swamp Snake Mitt Romney Hisses His Disapproval of the Stone Commutation

RINOs gonna RINO. – It’s pretty much impossible to get Republicans-in-name-only Pat Toomey and Mitt Romney to get in front of a camera or a reporter to talk about any aspect of ObamaGate, the single most heinous scandal in American history in which the legal apparatus of an entire presidency was brought to bear to fix the 2016 elections and then to execute an attempted coup d’etat on American soil. About all of that, these two senators remain studiously mute, as useless in a fight as a couple of terracotta warriors.

But boy, let President Donald Trump do something they don’t like, and they’re the first to rush out and do everything they can to support the Democrat/media propaganda narrative. Yesterday, both senators decided to pan the President of their own political party, such as it is, for his completely justified and righteous pardon of a harmless old man who was clearly railroaded by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama thugs, a clearly corrupt Obama judge, and a fixed jury.

Here’s what Romney had to say:

No concern about the Mueller Gestapo-like abuse of process; no concern about the judge, Amy Berman Jackson, who exercised a series of abuses to tilt the case in the prosecution’s favor; no concern about a jury that was packed with anti-Trump Obama loyalists; just condemnation of the President who chose to exercise an authority he has all-too-rarely chosen to use. This is the very essence of Mitt Romney.

For his part, Toomey chose to forego the simple Twitter route – good for him – and issue a formal statement in which he attempted – in typical DC Swamp fashion – to take all sides of the controversy:

“The president clearly has the legal and constitutional authority to grant clemency for federal crimes. However, this authority should be used judiciously and very rarely by any president. While I understand the frustration with the badly flawed Russia-collusion investigation, in my view, commuting Roger Stone’s sentence is a mistake.

“He was duly convicted of lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstructing a congressional investigation conducted by a Republican-led committee. Earlier this week Attorney General Bill Barr stated he thought Mr. Stone’s prosecution was ‘righteous’ and ‘appropriate’ and the sentence he received was ‘fair.’ Any objections to Mr. Stone’s conviction and trial should be resolved through the appeals process.”

Meh. Folks, what this statement from Toomey really is is the work of the staff of a spineless politician who represents a 50/50 state and is too afraid to take a principled stand on the matter. Toomey’s statement almost makes you want to respect Romney just a little bit, but then you remember it’s Mitt Romney we’re talking about here and that fleeting feeling flies away with the wind.

Not at all surprisingly, the President of the United States of America had something to say to these useless senators in response to their attacks. It is typically glorious:

This is the truth, folks. I defy any of you to find any statements from Romney or Toomey condemning Obama or Biden for their active participation in the ObamaGate conspiracy, which we now know to be the case based on documents in the public record. Go find me one and prove me wrong.

One final piece of information for the record here: The chart below shows how often each of the four most recent POTUS’s used their power commutation:

So, Trump has used his power more often than Bush did, not as often as Clinton, and then there’s Obama: 1,715 commutations, mostly of drug users and dealers and violent offenders. Look it up, and while you’re at it, see if you can find any similar harsh condemnation of Obama’s use of this power by Romney, who, after all, opposed him in the 2012 elections as the contemptible GOP nominee.

Romney could have won that election had he chosen to run a competent and aggressive campaign. But he clearly had no stomach for the battle; either that, or he intentionally threw the election. The result was a second term for Obama in which he was freed from having to moderate himself knowing that he would never have to face the voters again.

And that, friends, was the four year period that created the political conditions that made it possible for Donald Trump to run for and win the office of the presidency, as the public recoiled from those long years of incremental socialism, open borders and a give-away-the-store foreign policy that included planes filled with cash destined for Tehran and U.S. interventions in 8 separate civil wars in the Middle East and Africa.

The irony of Mitt Romney is that, had he campaigned as aggressively against Obama as he has done against President Trump, he would have become the 45th president instead of his tormentor. If Romney is looking for someone to blame for Trump, all he has to do is look in the mirror.

That is all.

Roger Stone’s Commutation: Completely Justified and Righteous

As expected, President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of Roger Stone Friday evening. – Naturally, liberals, leftists, socialist, Marxists and fascists – but I repeat myself – went nuts on Twitter. Here’s an example:

The person who wrote that drivel is actually a “legal analyst” for NBC News. Now you know why nothing NBC reports about legal matters is right. The morning of November 4 is going to be a really bad time for this guy, as he wakes up and realizes that he still has four more years of President Donald Trump to go.

Look, Roger Stone is not a choir boy. In fact, he’s a largely unsavory guy, a sleazy political operative, and in fact one the thousands of people who over the years helped to make the DC swamp such a horrible and corrupt place. But that doesn’t mean he should spend the rest of his life in prison. Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany did a fine job of explaining why in a written message sent out to the corrupt news media last night:

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency commuting the unjust sentence of Roger Stone, Jr.
Roger Stone is a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency.  There was never any collusion between the Trump Campaign, or the Trump Administration, with Russia.  Such collusion was never anything other than a fantasy of partisans unable to accept the result of the 2016 election.  The collusion delusion spawned endless and farcical investigations, conducted at great taxpayer expense, looking for evidence that did not exist.  As it became clear that these witch hunts would never bear fruit, the Special Counsel’s Office resorted to process-based charges leveled at high-profile people in an attempt to manufacture the false impression of criminality lurking below the surface.  These charges were the product of recklessness borne of frustration and malice.This is why the out-of-control Mueller prosecutors, desperate for splashy headlines to compensate for a failed investigation, set their sights on Mr. Stone.  Roger Stone is well known for his nearly 50 years of work as a consultant for high-profile Republican politicians, including President Ronald Reagan, Senator Bob Dole, and many others.  He is also well known for his outspoken support for President Donald J. Trump and opposition to Hillary Clinton.Mr. Stone was charged by the same prosecutors from the Mueller Investigation tasked with finding evidence of collusion with Russia.  Because no such evidence exists, however, they could not charge him for any collusion-related crime.  Instead, they charged him for his conduct during their investigation.  The simple fact is that if the Special Counsel had not been pursuing an absolutely baseless investigation, Mr. Stone would not be facing time in prison.

In addition to charging Mr. Stone with alleged crimes arising solely from their own improper investigation, the Mueller prosecutors also took pains to make a public and shameful spectacle of his arrest.  Mr. Stone is a 67-year-old man, with numerous medical conditions, who had never been convicted of another crime.  But rather than allow him to surrender himself, they used dozens of FBI agents with automatic weapons and tactical equipment, armored vehicles, and an amphibious unit to execute a pre-dawn raid of his home, where he was with his wife of many years.  Notably, CNN cameras were present to broadcast these events live to the world, even though they swore they were not notified—it was just a coincidence that they were there together with the FBI early in the morning.

Not only was Mr. Stone charged by overzealous prosecutors pursing a case that never should have existed, and arrested in an operation that never should have been approved, but there were also serious questions about the jury in the case.  The forewoman of his jury, for example, concealed the fact that she is a member of the so-called liberal “resistance” to the Trump Presidency.  In now-deleted tweets, this activist-juror vividly and openly attacked President Trump and his supporters.

Mr. Stone would be put at serious medical risk in prison.  He has appealed his conviction and is seeking a new trial.  He maintains his innocence and has stated that he expects to be fully exonerated by the justice system.  Mr. Stone, like every American, deserves a fair trial and every opportunity to vindicate himself before the courts.  The President does not wish to interfere with his efforts to do so.  At this time, however, and particularly in light of the egregious facts and circumstances surrounding his unfair prosecution, arrest, and trial, the President has determined to commute his sentence.  Roger Stone has already suffered greatly.  He was treated very unfairly, as were many others in this case.  Roger Stone is now a free man!

[End]

What the White House leaves out is the fact that Stone has been bankrupted by this despicable, Soviet-style persecution, forced to sell his home to pay his legal bills, and has been denied the right to make a living for over a year by the corrupt leftist judge in the case, Obama appointee Amy Berman Jackson.

This was not a fair trial – it is not how the American system of justice is supposed to function. Because of that undeniable reality, this commutation is completely justified.

Roger Stone is no threat to anyone, and it is fair to point out that the very same leftist nitwits who are wailing about this action on Twitter remained studiously silent when Barack Obama used his powers of pardon and commutation hundreds of times to free drug offenders and others who had committed violent crimes.

Enjoy your freedom, Mr. Stone, and don’t screw it up.

That is all.

Trump to Provide Justice for Roger Stone; Mike Flynn Sees His Own Justice Delayed Again

There will be justice, even if President Trump has to provide it himself. – Days before he was to report to federal prison as a result of his Soviet-style prosecution by the Mueller Special Counsel thugs, a corrupt federal judge and a rigged jury, Roger Stone will apparently have his absurdly harsh sentence commuted by President Donald J. Trump. The announcement could come as soon as this evening.

From a story at Fox News:

President Trump is expected to announce that he will commute Roger Stone’s sentence, just days before the longtime political operative is slated to report to prison to serve more than three years for charges stemming from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, Fox News has learned.

Sources told Fox News Friday that the president could announce a commutation of Stone’s sentence as early as Friday evening.

The president, as recently as Friday morning, has said he was “looking at” offering Stone clemency, saying he was “very unfairly treated.”

Stone was set to report to prison on July 14 to serve 40 months. He was sentenced in February to more than three years in prison after being convicted in November 2019 on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress on charges that stemmed from Mueller’s investigation. Stone, however, has appealed his conviction and continues to deny any wrongdoing.

[End]

Thus, a despicable abuse and corruption of the federal justice system will be remedied not by the courts themselves or by the Department of Justice, but by the President himself. It’s a damn shame it had to come to this, but bless President Trump for being willing to take this action and withstand the firestorm of condemnation that will inevitably come his way from the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt national news media.

Meanwhile, General Mike Flynn sees his own justice delayed yet again. – The full body of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals today ordered Mike Flynn and his badass attorney, Sidney Powell, to respond within 10 days to Judge Emmet Sullivan’s request for an en banc hearing. The Circuit Court also invited the DOJ to file a response of its own.

In the same order, the Court placed a stay on the previous order by the 3-judge panel that Sullivan must dismiss the case against Flynn by July 24, pending a hearing on the merits of Sullivan’s en banc request.

From a piece at TruNews.com:

The full court has not decided on the validity of the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss, or of Flynn’s lawyer’s petition for a writ of mandamus to require Sullivan to approve the DOJ motion. Rather, it has given both sides up to 10 days to present their arguments related to those matters, and in the meantime, the June 24 order is stayed:

“Upon consideration of the petition for the rehearing en banc, it is, on the court’s own motion,

“ORDERED that, within 10 days of the date of this order, petitioner file a response to the petition for rehearing en banc. not to exceed 3,900 words. The government is invited to respond in its discretion within the same ten-day period. Any response from the government may not exceed 3,900 words. Absent an order of the court, a reply to the responses will not be accepted for filing. It is

“FURTHER ORDERED that the effectiveness of this court’s order issued June 24, 2020, will be stayed pending disposition of the petition for rehearing en banc. See D.C. Cir. Rule 41(a)(3) (order granting writ becomes effective automatically 21 days after issuance in the absence of an order or other special direction of this court to the contrary).”

The three-judge panel’s order was set to go into force next Wednesday. In the meantime, retired federal judge John Gleeson has sought to move forward with his continued witch hunt against Flynn. He had been appointed by Sullivan to make a case for why he should not approve the DOJ motion to dismiss all charges against the former national security adviser.

[End]

And so, the run-out-the-clock strategy being played by Sullivan and his Lawfare lawyers continues to find success and willing accomplices in the federal court system.

Despicable.

That is all.

Trump on Obama-Era FBI Leaders: “They’re Human Scum.”

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

During his press conference on Sunday, President Donald Trump was asked by one of the Democrat operatives posing as reporters if he was considering pardoning Roger Stone before he begins to serve the prison sentence handed to him by his kangaroo court trial a few months ago. In his answer, the President implied  he considering a pardon not only for Stone, but for Paul Manafort and General Mike Flynn as well.

Here is a clip, followed by a transcript, of the President’s remarks on the subject:

Transcript:

Reporter: Mr. President, have you thought any more about pardoning Paul Manafort or Roger Stone so they’re not exposed to the coronavirus in jail?

Trump: Well, I just tell you this. Roger Stone was treated very unfairly. Paul Manafort, the black book turned out to be a fraud. We learned that out during the various last number of weeks or months. They had a black book that came out of Ukraine, turned out to be a fraud. Turned out to be a fraud. They convicted a man, turned out to be a fraud.

General Flynn was a highly respected person and it turned out to be a scam on him. The FBI said he didn’t lie and Mueller’s people wanted him to go to jail. Okay? So what am I going to do? You’ll find out what I’m going to do. I’m not going to say what I’m going to do, but I will tell you the whole thing turned out to be a scam, and it turned out to be a disgrace to our country, and it was a take down of a duly elected President.

These people suffered greatly. General Flynn, I mean, what they did to him, and even the FBI said, and they had some, and nobody’s a bigger fan of the FBI than me at the level of the people that really matter. But the top of the FBI was scum, and what they did to General Flynn, and you know it and everybody knows it, was a disgrace.

He was in the service for over 30 years. He ends up being a general and respected. Respected. And almost his first day in office, they come in with papers. They want to investigate him. Never happened before, and now the tables are turned. Investigate the investigators, I guess. These were crooked people. These are bad people. These are very dangerous people. You know what they are though? They’re scum. They’re human scum.

[End]

Indeed, the people at the top of the FBI at the time – James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Bill Priestap, Peter Strzok – are human scum. And yes, there is no doubt whatsoever, based on the information we have on the public record today, that they were all involved – along with Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein and many others – in what was a coup d’etat on American soil. This is an unforgivable act, most likely authorized at the very highest levels of the Obama Administration, that must never be forgotten and just allowed to quietly fade from the national memory. Because if that’s allowed to happen, then we can be sure that similar operations will take place in the future.

If ever there was a time to start perp-walking these people before the cameras into the local police station and booking them on charges, it is now, while the entire country’s attention is focused on the news of the day. There has seldom been a similar time of national focus since the days following the 9/11 attacks 19 years ago.

U.S. Attorney John Durham, on the direction of Attorney General William Barr, has now been working on his “investigation of the investigators” for more than a year, far more than enough time to start producing tangible results. Yet here we sit, without a single perp walk, indictment or trial involving the human scum who first tried to fix a national election and then tried to take down a duly-elected President of the United States.

This situation is intolerable for a free nation, and it cannot be allowed to stand. President Trump could at least begin to start righting the excesses of the Nazi-style Mueller “investigation” by issuing pardons to Flynn and Stone, and even Manafort (who was actually convicted of some real wrongdoing) if he so chooses.

Somebody needs to do something real here.

That is all.

The Deep State Assault on William Barr Reaches New Heights of Absurdity

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

John Durham’s investigation must be hovering right over the target. – This is turning into the Tet Offensive of all Deep State smears. They’re even bringing federal judges publicly into it.

Yesterday, The Federal Judges Association announced it would be holding an “emergency meeting” today to discuss, among other things, Barr’s decision to reduce the DOJ’s sentencing recommendation in the Roger Stone case. This intervention, which was nothing out of ordinary and well within the rights of any attorney general to execute, has been seized upon by the Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation as the centerpiece of its effort to take down Barr as investigator John Durham’s investigation of the Deep State proceeds to conclusion.

Remember how transparent this all is: It is so transparent that I told you way back last summer that this is exactly what would be taking place in our country right now. Now, think about this: If I knew it would be taking place, don’t you think AG Barr was aware of it as well?

Understanding that reality means that you immediately understood that last night’s story pushed fby Deep State tool Matt Zapatosky at the Washington Post, that Barr was “considering quitting” his job because mean ol’ President Trump won’t stop tweeting in his general direction, was laughably false. That understanding was confirmed when, about an hour after the story broke, Barr’s spokesperson issued a simple statement that said “Addressing Beltway rumors: The Attorney General has no plans to resign.”

Oh.

So, what really happened? The most likely scenario is that Barr had set up a trap to identify a leaker or two on his staff. What better way to catch a leaker than to casually feed that person or persons a juicy tidbit like that and then sit back and see how long it takes either the Post or the New York Times to suddenly have a “scoop”?

Or maybe Barr just decided to have a little fun yesterday. You can almost imagine this happening:

William Barr: Hey, guys, let’s have some fun. Leak out to the Washington Post that I’m quitting because of Trump’s tweets.

Media: Barr’s Quitting! He’s great, standing up to Trump’s mean tweets!

[1 hour later] Barr: I’m not quitting.

Media: Aw, man….

Back to this meeting of the Federal Judges Association: The group’s spokesman issued a ringing endorsement of corrupt judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding over the case against Stone, saying that  “We are supportive of any federal judge who does what is required.”

Ummmmm…what exactly is “required” of a deep state federal judge? Ms. Jackson presided over a case in which she and everyone else knew the jury foreman was a rabid Trump hater, and who lied on the questionnaire she had to fill out in order to serve on that jury. Despite that reality becoming public in recent days, Judge Jackson yesterday ordered the trial to just move ahead to the sentencing phase as if none of that had happened.

This is also the very same judge who issued a 100% public speaking gag order against Stone, preventing him from making a living of any kind for more than a year as this abusive prosecution has dragged on and on. She is also the very same judge who tossed septuagenarian Paul Manafort into solitary confinement during his trial, a draconian punishment courts do not deploy against rapists and murderers.

Is that doing “what is required?”

The fact that the federal judiciary – most of whose members were appointed by Clinton, Bush and Obama – has now become so utterly politicized that it would publicly stage such a bit of Kabuki theater is one of the most disturbing developments of the last four years. This meeting today is nothing more or less than a rank act of judicial intimidation designed to send a signal to Barr and Durham, warning them not to expect impartial treatment in any cases they bring against the bad actors from the Obama era.

This is real, true banana republic stuff happening right in front of our very eyes. These people are purely transparent once you accept them for what they really are.

None of it would be happening if Barr and Durham weren’t getting really close.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

The Trump/Barr Spat Might Be Nothing More Than Stagecraft

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

Getting tired of all this WINNING yet? – No, the stock markets didn’t set new records on Thursday. But, hey, WINNING is never a straight-line progression, right? No, Thursday’s WINNING came in other areas.

Just hours after we wrote about her here at the Campaign Update, corrupt former U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu outright resigned from the Treasury Department, where she had been reassigned weeks ago in anticipation of her being confirmed by the Senate as Treasury’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes. That opportunity went away after President Trump smartly pulled her nomination on Tuesday. Thus, one more deep state embed is now out of the federal bureaucracy.

Too bad, so sad.

No doubt we will see Ms. Liu pop up as a high-paid contributor at CNN or MSNBC in the coming weeks, because that’s what all these deep state skunks and snakes do.

In other news, President Trump and his Attorney General are now feuding. – Or are they? It’s hard to know, really.

William Barr gave what on the surface appeared to be a damage control interview to ABC News Thursday, during the course of which he complained about the President’s tweeting habits, saying at one point that “I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.”

The Attorney General also stated that “I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” referring apparently to the President’s Tuesday tweets about the DOJ’s conduct of the Roger Stone case, which by any rational measure has been outrageous and abusive.

Interestingly, in response to the Barr interview, White House Spokesman Stephanie Grisham said that President Trump has “full faith and confidence in Attorney General Barr to do his job and uphold the law” and he “wasn’t bothered by the comments at all and he has the right, just like any American citizen, to publicly offer his opinions.”

Translated into Trump Speak, that reads “Hey Bill, you have the right to speak your mind, and so do I. Deal with it. Just do your damn job.”

So, what we have here is, at least on the surface, a public spat between the President and his Attorney General. In light of the Democrat/media hoax swirling around the men over the Roger Stone case, however, which falsely alleges that the President abused his power by tweeting his outrage over the draconian sentence recommended by DOJ, it’s a mighty convenient spat indeed.

Think about it: What better time for an Attorney General to assert his independence from his boss than when he’s just been summoned to testify before a circus-clown-filled House Judiciary Committee in 6 weeks over allegations that he is not independent at all? What better time for Mr. Barr to do that when his lead investigator in the inquiry into the origins of the Obama-era spying on the Trump Campaign/Transition Team is preparing to start revealing his findings?

What better time for Mitch McConnell, John Thune and other prominent Republicans on Capitol Hill to come out and support Mr. Barr’s contention that he should be left alone to do his job, which they did on Thursday? This tactic – if it is one – won’t stop the Democrat efforts to smear Barr dead in its tracks, but it does under-cut their narrative, especially when Barr goes to one of the most biased and corrupt mainstream media outlets of all to use as his platform.

We all must remember that it’s the narrative that matters here. The narrative is all the left cares about – to them, truth has no real meaning anymore. The narrative dictates their daily conduct and indeed, for many of them, forms the very basis of their being. Whenever the narrative fails to have its desired impact, their effectiveness is diminished, and so is their power to influence the public.

So, maybe Barr’s interview and the President’s response were exactly what they appeared to be: A public spat over the President’s social media habits. Or maybe, as has so often been the case in the past, the President and his Administration were deploying a tactic designed to subtly promote their own preferred narrative about Mr. Barr’s independence in advance of Durham’s investigation finally starting to bear fruit.

It sure will be fun to find out.

The DOJ Rats Are Outing Themselves

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

Talk about calling in fire on your own position… – All four corrupt U.S. Attorneys who have been persecuting, er, ‘prosecuting’ former Trump adviser Roger Stone abruptly resigned from the case on Tuesday, proving conclusively that they are deep state embeds who need to be fired from their positions at the Department of Justice.

Their mass resignation came in response to Attorney General William Barr’s move to rescind their abusive sentencing recommendation in the case of 7 to 9 years in prison for a guy convicted of “crimes” that normally elicit recommendations of weeks in jail or outright probation. This was no accidental event.

Indeed, as the day wore on, it became obvious that the four lawyers – Michael Marando, Aaron Zelinsky, Jonathan Kravis and Adam Jed – had intentionally misled the DOJ about what their recommendation would be, and submitted their outrageous proposal for the express purpose of creating this scenario. Their mass protest over Barr’s intervention was portrayed by a coordinating, corrupt news media as abuse by Barr and President Trump, who tweeted his own outrage over the sentencing recommendation early in the day.

Right on cue following the President’s tweet on the matter, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler all issued statements of protest at what they called the President’s “abuse of power,” with Nadler even implying that Trump’s tweet was impeachable, due to his supposed interference with the DOJ internal processes. Nevermind that DOJ had already said it would rescind the sentencing recommendation before the President issued his tweet – the narrative is all that matters to the Democrat/media propaganda factory.

Chuck Schumer hilariously took the step of sending a letter to DOJ IG Michael Horowitz to perform an investigation of the supposed interference into the DOJ process by President Trump. But hell, it takes Horowitz a minimum of 14 months to find the damn bathroom. Talk about an empty threat.

Interestingly, even though the DOJ rescinded the abusive sentencing recommendation later in the day, providing its rationale for lower sentencing in the process, it left the ultimate decision on how much jail time Stone should serve up to corrupt Obama appointed federal judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding in the case. This is the same corrupt judge who so abused Paul Manafort during his trial, placing a guy charged with 10 year-old tax evasion and lobbying irregularities into solitary confinement and invoking other measures that Al Capone and Ted Bundy didn’t even have to suffer.

Many Trump supporters were outraged at DOJ’s failure to offer a firm recommendation, but I think what have going on here is a dare. Barr appears to be daring Judge Jackson to issue a harsh sentence to Stone despite all the public uproar, in order to provide President Trump with a clear and unarguable rationale for issuing a full presidential pardon. It will be very interesting see if Judge Jackson takes the bait.

In the meantime, we have four corrupt, traitorous DOJ employees who have now stupidly identified themselves as deep state operatives, providing AG Barr with an unambiguous rationale for providing them office space in converted broom closets in which they can spend the remainder of their DOJ careers editing briefs written by real lawyers.

Or he could just fire them all outright. I’m good either way.

No Sympathy for the Devil, er, Robert Mueller

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

Reminder: Arkancide can strike at anytime, anywhere. – Convicted and newly-accused pedophile and longtime friend of the Clintons Jeffrey Epstein was found “injured and in a fetal position inside his cell at a New York city jail” yesterday, according to officials involved in his current legal proceedings.

NBC Channel 4 in New York City reports that jail officials initially claimed the incident was the result of an attempted “suicide”, but Channel 4 says another source claims that “an assault has not been ruled out, and that another inmate was questioned.” Oh, you don’t say.

The story continues: “The inmate who investigators have talked to in Lower Manhattan facility has been identified as Nicholas Tartaglione, according to two sources. Tartaglione is a former police officer in Westchester County who was arrested in December 2016 and accused of killing four men in an alleged cocaine distribution conspiracy, then burying their bodies in his yard in Otisville in Orange County, according to court records.”

Sounds like a prince of a man. Hey, wonder if he’s ever been to Arkansas?

Sympathy for Robert Mueller? Sorry, I’m all out. – I was criticized yesterday for not showing proper “sympathy” for Robert Mueller, given his obviously diminished state. I received several notes pointing out that Mueller is after all an ex-Marine (we should all be grateful for that service) and that our real ire should be directed at the evil Andrew Weissman and the other Mueller bad hires who actually ran the two-year Witch Hunt and actually wrote the despicable final Mueller Report.

Well, sorry, folks, I’m not buying that nonsense. While Mueller is, as noted above, in an obviously diminished mental state and at this point appears to barely have his wits about him, let’s all review how he ended up in that witness chair yesterday:

  • It is well-documented that Mueller is in fact a very close friend of James Comey – despite his hemming and hawing on that yesterday – whose highly-justified firing was used by Rod Rosenstein as the pretense to create the Special Counsel investigation. That conflict of interest alone would have led an actual ethical person to refuse the appointment. Mueller didn’t care.
  • It is also well-documented that, in the week leading up to the appointment, Mueller held a series of meetings with Rosenstein – another close friend, another blatant conflict of interest – in which they discussed the prospect of his becoming Special Counsel.
  • Even worse, it is well-documented – despite Mueller’s half-hearted denial – that the day before he was appointed to become Special Counsel by his good friend Rosenstein, Mueller actually met with President Donald Trump himself, to discuss the open FBI Director’s position.
  • Mueller didn’t take this job on the spur of the moment, as so many in our fake news media have falsely claimed, he plotted to get this job.

Ask yourself: Are these the behaviors of an admirable man, a man for whom we should now have sympathy because he is obviously aging badly? But there is more, much, much more:

  • We are supposed to now be angered at Weissman, the “real” bad guy here (and he is a very, very bad guy), but who hired Weissman? Robert Mueller hired Weissman, knowing fully his sordid history of abusing his power and ignoring the law, and knowing fully his support of Hillary Clinton and personal animus towards President Trump.
  • Even worse than that, Mueller took the job knowing from Day 1 that, in the famous words of Super Duper ex-FBI Agent and aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok, there was no ‘there there.’ Mueller and everyone he hired knew from the first day on the job that “Russia Collusion” was a fantasy play invented by the DNC, the Clinton Campaign and Christopher Steele with cooperation from agents from a variety of foreign governments including – gasp! – RUSSIA.
  • Mueller took the job knowing that the job was in fact an attempt at a coup d’etat on American soil, an effort to remove a sitting, duly-elected President of the United States of America by whatever means he and his evil minions could concoct.
  • Regardless of who actually did the work, Mueller lent his name and reputation to this heinous enterprise, an act of mendacity of unprecedented scope and goal in American history.
  • Mueller’s name sat atop the Special Counsel’s offices, no one else’s. All the Gestapo tactics, all the despicable abuses of civil rights, all the early morning raids, all the torture-like imprisonments, all the bully tactics designed to force witnesses to lie to save their own skins – all of those things were conducted under the name of Robert Mueller, no one else.
  • The final report that was issued, the report that threw all semblance of legal ethics and due process so vital to our personal freedoms to the wind, is called “The Mueller Report,” not the Weissman Report. Regardless of who actually wrote the words in that report – words that continuously shocked and visibly surprised Mueller himself when read back to him yesterday – those words were written and published under the name of Robert Mueller, and Robert Mueller personally placed his signature on that report.

So, if y’all want to express your sympathy for Robert Mueller in his obviously-diminished state, you go right ahead. Do it and enjoy it and even signal your virtue about it on social media.

Me? I’ll reserve my sympathies for General Mike Flynn and Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone and George Papadopoulous and all the myriad other American citizens whose constitutional rights were abused and personal lives were destroyed under Mueller’s name. And I will remain angry about the evil fantasy play Mueller put our nation through for the last two solid years.

Damn him for doing it.

That is all.

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.

That is all.
