Another Comey Investigation, Another Chance for William Barr to Finally Act

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

Yet another narrative-setter from the NYTimes’s deep state mouthpiece hack, Adam Goldman. – Honestly, this is getting to be almost as frequent as the stock market closing at new record highs, something that also happened yet again on Thursday.

Goldman posted a piece yesterday designed to set the narrative for the Times’s Deep State managers, this time in favor of our National Teenage Drama Queen, former FBI Director James Comey. Goldman gets down to his cover business right from the start, with this headline:

Justice Dept. Investigating Years-Old Leaks and Appears Focused on Comey

Oh, hey, it’s just more leaks by Comey – and hey, we all have known for years Comey was a serial leaker – and the leaks in question might have involved classified information, but they are “years-old”, so what’s the big deal here? Right? Right.

But then Goldman really gets down to business with his sub-head, which is an even more blatantly-slanted statement designed to convince readers to condemn not the criminal – Comey – but the investigators:

An inquiry into years-old disclosures of classified information is highly unusual and leaves law enforcement officials open to accusations of politicizing their work.

So, that’s a two-for-one deal, not only sucking up to the Drama Queen, but also consistent with the corrupt news media’s ongoing efforts to smear Attorney General William Barr. Goldman has achieved all of that, and we haven’t even gotten into the text of his piece. That’s gold star stuff right there.

Let’s go to the first two paragraphs, of the piece, which first lay out the bare bones of what is actually taking place, and then quickly manages to also smear President Donald Trump:

WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors in Washington are investigating a years-old leak of classified information about a Russian intelligence document, and they appear to be focusing on whether the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey illegally provided details to reporters, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

The case is the second time the Justice Department has investigated leaks potentially involving Mr. Comey, a frequent target of President Trump, who has repeatedly called him a “leaker.” Mr. Trump recently suggested without evidence that Mr. Comey should be prosecuted for “unlawful conduct” and spend years in prison.

There’s that favorite corrupt media phrase, “without evidence,” which is only used against Republicans and always manages to ignore the mountain of information in the public domain supporting the President’s statement. But hey, that’s what corrupt reporters at the New York Times are trained to do, so Goldman might get a promotion for checking off so many Deep State narrative piece boxes before we even get to his third paragraph.

You have to go to paragraph 4 to get to the essence of what the investigators are really looking into:

Law enforcement officials are scrutinizing at least two news articles about the F.B.I. and Mr. Comey, published in The New York Times and The Washington Post in 2017, that mentioned the Russian government document, according to the people familiar with the investigation. Hackers working for Dutch intelligence officials obtained the document and provided it to the F.B.I., and both its existence and the collection of it were highly classified secrets, the people said.

So, hey, Comey was leaking “highly classified secrets” to the New York Times (shocking!) and the Washington Post, the two major print mouth organs for the Democrat Party and the Deep State, which are largely, but not entirely, the same thing. Given everything we have found out about these three specific players over the last four years, this is akin to informing the Times readership that water is indeed wet.

So, what is the actual, exact nature of this “Russian intelligence document,” you ask? Well, you naturally have to go deep into bowels of the report where few of the Times short attention span readers will bother to tread to discover that it is actually nothing more than an official Democrat National Committee email sent by then-DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to one Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a group funded by … wait for it … George Soros.

Oh.:

The latest investigation involves material that Dutch intelligence operatives siphoned off Russian computers and provided to the United States government. The information included a Russian analysis of what appeared to be an email exchange during the 2016 presidential campaign between Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida who was also the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee at the time, and Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a democracy-promoting organization whose founder, George Soros, has long been a target of the far right.

Note the sympathetic nod to Soros at the end, which attempts to portray this despicable Democracy-destroying monster as some sort of victim. This is how depraved Goldman really is.

The next paragraph is a real doozy, which is why Goldman and his corrupt editors buried it so deeply:

In the email, Ms. Wasserman Schultz suggested that then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch would make sure that Mrs. Clinton would not be prosecuted in the email case. Both Ms. Wasserman Schultz and Mr. Benardo have denied being in contact, suggesting the document was meant to be Russian disinformation.

So, gee, here we have the Chairman of the DNC telling a radical anti-American Soros operative that Loretta Lynch was putting in the fix on the Clinton email investigation. Gosh, imagine that.

But Goldman attempts to come to Lynch’s rescue two paragraphs later, working very hard to imply that the official DNC email is just a Russian fake:

Whether the document was fake remains an open question. But American officials at the time did not believe that Ms. Lynch would hinder the Clinton email investigation, and neither Ms. Wasserman Schultz nor Mr. Benardo had any inside information about it. Still, if the Russians had released the information after the inquiry was closed, it could have tainted the outcome, hurt public confidence in the Justice Department and sowed discord.

That first sentence is an outright fabrication. Many experts have examined the raft of DNC emails that have been made public since 2016, and not a single one of those emails has been found to have been fake. That is a disgraceful fake news sentence. Thus, totally expected from a Deep State toady at the New York Times.

Then there’s the sentence about “American officials” at the time not believing that Lynch would hinder the Clinton fake investigation by the FBI: Who was a higher “official” within the Democrat Party than the freaking Chairman of the DNC, the person who is outright telling a Soros lackey that the AG was in fact fixing the FBI’s fake investigation?

The piece just gets more disgustingly biased from there, but you can read the rest for yourselves if you care to do so.

Bottom line: All of this information most likely came from Comey and his lawyers, who are probably the “sources” for Goldman. Here we have Comey under investigation one more time for his serial leaking, a pattern of behavior that William Barr’s DOJ already decided to give the Drama Queen a pass on when he was actually the subject of a criminal referral last year by IG Michael Horowitz.

There is no real doubt that Comey is guilty; the only question is whether or not Barr will ever decide to do anything about it. This is a crime for which hundreds of millions of ordinary Americans would spend time in prison for committing. Why should Jim Comey be any different? Of course, we all know the answer to that by now.

So, once again, William Barr is presented with a prime opportunity to prove that he is indeed dedicated to ending the two-tiered system of justice that Attorneys General of the 21st century have fully implemented in our country. This very, very low-hanging fruit for an AG with good intent.

I wish I had more confidence that Barr would to finally, at long last, pick that low-hanging fruit and do something real.

That is all.

The WaPo Rolls Out a Narrative-Setting Story on the Huber Investigation

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

Are you possibly getting a wee little bit tired of all this WINNING yet? No? – Yeah, you know what’s coming: All major U.S. stock indexes – the NASDAQ, the S&P 500 and the Dow – closed at all-time record high levels on Thursday as the markets recognized the soundness of the Trump Administration’s strategy vis a vis Iran even as the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies raged on about it. And it’s only going to get better today, as pre-market trading futures indicate the markets will open at new record levels later this morning. Truly, it never gets old.

Is Hillary finally off the hook on her fake Foundation influence peddling? – If you believe the Washington Post, you will think she is. The corrupt news fakers at the WaPo reported yesterday that the “investigation” supposedly being conducted by Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber – a lifelong Democrat and Obama appointee – into the machinations of the Clinton Foundation has ended without result. Thus, if the report, based solely on the Post’s usual anonymous sources, is to be believed, the Huber investigation turns out to have been just another of so many false promises made by the worthless ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who announced his assignment of this task to Huber in early 2018.

It has long seemed obvious to me that Huber was actually doing nothing real on this “investigation;” thus, this report comes as no real surprise. But this is the Washington Post, after all, filing yet another foundation-devoid report based on nothing but “sources” who refuse to be named. As we have seen time after time over the last four years, this sort of report has well over a 50% chance of being a completely false story, nothing more than an attempt by someone who might be a target of the “investigation” to set a favorable narrative in advance of the issuance of whatever findings Huber may decide to produce. We have seen this tactic time after time after time, as corrupt media outlets like the WaPo work hard to provide cover for their Deep State benefactors.

So, it is always wise to wait a few days to see what else might pop up.

It is interesting to note that this story is chock-full of all sorts of qualifiers and weasel words, which indicates the reporter(s) who worked on it are attempting to spin a yarn and want to be able to claim ignorance should future revelations prove it to have been inaccurate. Here are some examples:

  • The very first paragraph says the investigation “has effectively ended with no tangible results, and current and former law enforcement officials said they never expected the effort to produce much of anything.” What that sentence really says is that the investigation hasn’t ended at all and the “sources” on whom the reporter is relying aren’t really sure of what they are telling the reporter. Also, “much of anything” is not nothing, indicating the reporter and his sources believe Huber has found something, and that something has them worried.
  • This is confirmed in paragraph 3, which says, in part: “Current and former officials said that Huber has largely finished and found nothing worth pursuing — though the assignment has not formally ended and no official notice has been sent to the Justice Department or to lawmakers, these people said.” Oh. Ok.
  • Paragraph 4 reinforces that the investigation is not actually closed with this opening: “The effective conclusion of his investigation…” An “effective” conclusion is not a conclusion.

Thus, we see the early paragraphs of the story completely contradict the headline. This investigation – to the extent it is a real investigation – is not closed at all, and someone in the Deep State is worried about that fact.

The next part of any good Deep State cover story is to glorify the bad actors at the DOJ who are most likely also the people leaking this information to the WaPo’s reporter.

  • Paragraph 11 takes care of that task with this: “But from the start, senior officials inside the Justice Department viewed Huber’s task as unlikely to lead to anything of significance…” That would be “senior officials” like Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and James Comey and Lisa Page. You know – all those “senior officials” who no longer work at the DOJ.

There is much, much more of this kind of nonsense in this story, including three paragraphs later on that are designed to create sympathy for poor, poor Hillary Clinton, but you get the point: This is just another Deep State narrative creation story dutifully rolled out by the sympathetic corrupt reporters and editors who infest the WaPo and our national fake news media.

Again, I harbor little belief that Huber has been doing anything real in this investigation as it relates to the Clinton Foundation, and am not anticipating any real results from it in terms of doing anything to punish the Pantsuit Princess for her blatant selling of the Secretary of State’s office to the highest bidders. But this particular WaPo story, planted as it obviously has been by Deep State interests, raises the prospect that Huber might be onto something tangentially related to the Clinton Foundation, something that has some Deep State skunk or snake worried.

So, best to wait a few days and see what else develops on this front before just assuming Huber has a big bag of nothing. Because more often than not, narrative-setting stories like this one clearly is turn out to be proven false by subsequent events.

One last thought: If the Pantsuit Princess wants to make one final run at the presidency this year, she will need to be free and clear from accusations of wrongdoing related to her foundation. Just a thought…

 

That is all.

Trump is Completely Exposing the Democrats and the Media

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

[Note: The following piece is from contributor Gregg Updike. I hope you enjoy his thoughts on the situation with Iran, and how President Trump is exposing the seditious nature of the Democrat Party and its corrupt media toadies – I know I did.]

While it is great that President Trump has recently taken out a couple of head honchos in the Middle East, can anyone doubt that their #2s (in every sense of the word) won’t just take over and continue their fight?  Had Hitler been successfully assassinated in July 1944, Goering would have taken over, then Himmler…

Point being, just because America took out these leaders, it does not mean Iran and ISIS will stack their bats and quit the field.  This means we need to be even more vigilant against reprisals.  I am in no way saying that Trump is wrong in what he is doing, I’m just saying these “foreign entanglements”, and their consequences, are far from over.  I only hope and pray for our president’s safety, and that he soon removes all our assets (targets) including our embassies from that entire region; let the various factions pound each other into the sand.  ​​

Now that we are oil independent, turn the keys over to Israel and let them have at it; let them either win outright with our tacit support, or continue with the tit-for-tat fighting that has been going on there forever.  I don’t care which route Israel takes, and neither should most Americans.  It would be nice, however, if a greater number of Americans of Jewish descent would actually support Trump and his efforts to defeat Israel’s ancient enemies abroad and renounce and work to defeat Anti-Semitic Democratic Politicians here rather than voting lockstep Democrat for whatever reason.​

Once we are out of the region, our doctrine should be: we will flatten any country that causes us harm – period, end of story, with no “nation building/rebuilding”.  Let Europe, without the US propping up NATO, fend for itself against the threats from the Middle East, Russia, and China.  And finally, we must get out of the UN and get the UN out of America.​​

Apart from the transformation of the courts, and the draining of the swamp via Barr and Durham, Trump’s greatest contribution to America will be the total exposure of the media and the Democratic Party as a cabal of anti-American seditionists.  Sooner or later there will be a Bastille Day of sorts, and the domestic enemies of America as founded will be dealt with.  They will be easy to find as they are doing a wonderful job of exposing themselves for all to see.

They are effectively targeting themselves for destruction by openly rooting for our enemies and against America/Trump. Yet these “journalists” and other “experts” are supposed to be among the best and brightest from American institutions of higher learning; how myopic they all are.  In the interim, Trump is driving them insane with their TDS and making them more and more irrelevant.​​

The MSM is, and has been, working hand in hand with America’s domestic enemies to diminish and destroy our constitution, amendment by amendment for decades.  What makes them think the 1st Amendment will survive to protect them if the “Fundamental Change” that the Obama types want to bring to America ever comes to fruition?​

On the foreign side, the NY Times had a reporter named Walter Duranty espousing Stalin’s communist propaganda from Moscow pre WWII, CNN had an embed in Middle East during Gulf War 1 who refused to be debriefed by the Pentagon upon his return after the first war.  And before and during the second Iraq War, CNN had “exclusive” coverage from their Baghdad “correspondent” who was reporting to the world only exactly what Saddam Hussein and Baghdad Bob allowed him to say.

I also remember how many, if not most MSM TV anchors refused to wear US Flag lapel pins stating they didn’t want to be seen rooting for one side or the other – just the facts, uh, sure, right.  Presidents Wilson (D), and FDR (D) most certainly censored the press during their terms, so there is precedent on the regulation of “Free” (Political) Speech.​

History has shown when there is a “Fundamental Change” i.e. revolution, or invasion of a country, or other takeover, the first people purged are the “intelligentsia” including professors of higher learning and the press… ​​

I’m a capable and productive person who is very adaptable and has worked many blue collar jobs and I can survive in almost any political environment by what I bring to the table.  I don’t believe any of these singularly specialized propagandists, masquerading as “experts” or “journalists” are capable of doing anything but being keyboard warriors, and ignorant social justice and environmental agitators.

They will be the first ones eliminated if and when true socialism/fascism/communism comes to America. The constitution as we know it will be gone, and the country will be ruled by a dictator.  No dictator would ever tolerate any such fifth column activity; it will be brutally put down just as sure as the sun comes up every day.​​

I only hope the “useful idiots” that the left has used for their evil anti-American purpose will someday soon wise up and abandon their (ultimately petty) crusades for their own sake.  Of the 328 or so million people in the US, only about 8-10% are the agitators, the loudmouths, the troublemakers to varying degrees; still that can be as many as ten million people young or old enough to actually be active in all the protests/riots that are sure to come this November when Trump wins a second term in a landslide, and the House flips to the GOP.

I truly believe that the other 90+ percent of the country – if not the world – are fundamentally good people who would just love to be able to live their lives in peaceful coexistence without all this conflict and drama. It’s the 10 percenters that must be defeated and ultimately eliminated for peace to prevail.​

The president has shown great acumen in his ability to be ahead of the curve and has been very successful in blunting and exposing the left’s agenda(s).  His second term, starting with the first sign of violence after the election, must be the direct, forceful and complete stopping of all the paid professional protesters/rioters.  Then he must go after all the domestic and foreign money people funding this Anti-American revolution/coup.

The presidential oath states the president’s first obligation is to protect and defend America and its’ Constitution from all foreign and domestic enemies.  All of the people and entities (including and especially the MSM/SM) who have been engaged in this three plus year coup, Logan Act Violations, aiding and abetting election interference (that was actually done by the Democrats), illegally spying on any American, or allowing/authorizing the same, and who promote the subsequent violence should be charged under the RICO Act.

[End]

Libel Suits Targeting Corrupt News Outlets Are Piling Up

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

One of the most pressing issues facing America today is finding some way to hold corrupt and out of control media outlets accountable for their intentional reporting of blatantly false information as part of their tireless efforts to support the agenda of the Democrat Party. Accomplishing this is very difficult given the state of U.S. law and the protections afforded the press under the first amendment.

As things stand today, seeking to punish these corrupt organizations via the libel laws is essentially the only route available to those they have abused, and it is a very tough road indeed. Regardless, some hardy souls and creative lawyers are making the effort.

On Friday evening, GOP congressman Devin Nunes announced he would soon be filing libel suits against both CNN and The Daily Beast, two of the most corrupt purveyors of fake news on the planet. The Daily Beast filed a report earlier this week alleging that Ukrainian operative Lev Parnas, who has been indicted in the U.S. on campaign finance technicalities,  claims that he helped Nunes set up meetings in which he obtained information about Ukraine during a European trip last November.

Nunes says the stories are blatantly and demonstrably false:

“These demonstrably false and scandalous stories published by the Daily Beast and CNN are the perfect example of defamation and reckless disregard for the truth,” Nunes told Breitbart News late Friday night. “Some political operative offered these fake stories to at least five different media outlets before finding someone irresponsible enough to publish them. I look forward to prosecuting these cases, including the media outlets, as well as the sources of their fake stories, to the fullest extent of the law. I intend to hold the Daily Beast and CNN accountable for their actions. They will find themselves in court soon after Thanksgiving.”

Because he has spent the past three years as a leader in the effort to expose the deep state coup cabal within the DOJ and FBI and also led the defense of President Trump during the past two weeks’ impeachment circus, Nunes has been the target of all manner of false reporting by these and other corrupt media organizations. It would be a great blessing for the nation if he could prove his case and win monstrous judgments against both CNN and The Daily Beast.

On Thursday, Covington Catholic High School student Nicolas Sandmann won a crucial judgment in his $275 million libel case against NBC Universal. The judge in that case, U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman, ruled that if NBC’s allegations that Sandmann “blocked” well-known leftist activist Nathan Phillips or “did not allow him to retreat” during their confrontation on the National Mall last year are false, then they are libelous.

As reported by Fox Business on Friday:

Video widely shared online showed Sandmann and Phillips standing close to each other, with Sandmann staring and at times smiling at Phillips as the man continued to beat on a drum. Both Phillips and Sandmann have said they were trying to defuse tensions rising among three groups on a day when Washington hosted both the anti-abortion March for Life, attended by Sandmann and his Covington Catholic High School classmates, and the Indigenous Peoples March.

You will remember that every corrupt fake news organization in America participated in a feeding frenzy following that confrontation in an effort to portray Sandmann and his classmates as a pack of rabid, privileged white kids who bullied a poor “native American” who was just minding his own business when they supposedly descended upon him. We quickly learned – and the video of the incident proved beyond all doubt – that it was in fact the kids who were minding their own business waiting for a bus to arrive to pick them up when Phillips, a notorious leftist agitator with a long history of aggressive behavior, descended on them.

Notably, Judge Bertelsman is also the presiding judge in Sandmann’s similar cases against CNN and the Washington Post, and has also ruled in Sandmann’s favor on these issues in those cases. With any luck, Sandmann will ultmately prevail in all three cases.

Who knows, given that CNN is already a money-losing proposition, maybe a couple of judgments totaling half a billion dollars or so would give its owners at AT&T cause to consider whether their ongoing support for CNN’s Goebbels-like fake news operation is worth bearing the cost and reputational damage.

We can always hope. For America to survive in its current form, we must find some means of enforcing accountability in our intentionally-fake news media establishment. If the libel laws can’t be made to work, some other, probably uglier, alternatives will have to be found.

That is all.

The Horowitz FISA Investigation May Have Found its Scapegoat

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

Details of the Horowitz FISA report are leaking, and it all smacks of a whitewash. – Not that that outcome wasn’t completely predictable, since I warned you to fully expect that in yesterday’s Campaign Update.

Last night, CNN ran with a story – based on leaks no doubt obtained from one of the many ex-FBI snakes now employed by the fakest news channel on earth – proclaiming that Horowitz’s report will make claims of criminal activity by a single FBI lawyer, whose identity is not revealed in the story. Might it be James Baker, the former FBI general counsel now working for CNN as a contributor? Might it be Lisa Page, the paramour and co-conspirator to super-duper FBI stud Peter Strzok? We didn’t know, and CNN wasn’t telling.

What CNN did say about the nature of the potential charges against this lawyer is this:

A former FBI lawyer is under criminal investigation after allegedly altering a document related to 2016 surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, several people briefed on the matter told CNN.

A little later in the evening, the Deep State mouthpieces at the Washington Post came in with a story of their own, and it revealed more about this lawyer’s identity. According to the Post:

The person under scrutiny is a low-level FBI lawyer who has since been forced out of the agency, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss material that has not yet been made public.

Hilariously, after Wolf Blitzer carried a report on this CNN “breaking news,” the fake news channel’s own on-air fake talent studiously ignored it for the rest of the evening. Only in America’s dead profession of journalism would a news outlet work so hard to bury a major scoop that its own people were the first to report.

But the bottom line here is that Horowitz, true to his nature as a career creature of the DC Swamp, has apparently found the perfect scapegoat, a low-level lawyer who has already been forced out of his job and who can now become the sacrificial lamb, the offering to the public in a report that otherwise whitewashes the utter defrauding of the FISA process that we all know was led by Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein, among others. We know a whitewash is very likely because the Post piece also contains this very disturbing passage:

That conduct did not alter Horowitz’s finding that the surveillance application of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had a proper legal and factual basis, the officials said.

Ugh.

The lone bit of potentially good news in all of this actually appears in the CNN report:

Horowitz turned over evidence on the allegedly altered document to John Durham, the federal prosecutor appointed early this year by Attorney General William Barr to conduct a broad investigation of intelligence gathered for the Russia probe by the CIA and other agencies, including the FBI. The altered document is also at least one focus of Durham’s criminal probe.

So, again, if you were expecting gang-buster, myriad criminal referrals to be contained in the report from career apparatchik Michael Horowitz, you would be well advised to cool your jets. While reports from CNN and the WaPo are highly suspect at best and far from definitive accounts of the totality of the Horowitz’s findings, they provide good initial foundation to believe the report will be a classic DC Swamp whitewash.

After all, if the report contained criminal referrals targeting the true major players in all of this, those major players would be working with their toadies at CNN, WaPo, the NYTimes and the networks to plant stories that smear Horowitz and contain more-preferred narratives.

If you want real justice to be levied at the coup cabal plotters, it will either come from John Durham and his investigation, or it will never come at all.

That is all.

Michael Horowitz – America’s Joke-Telling DMV Sloth

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? Nope, not a chance. – The S&P 500 set another record close on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrials and NASDAQ coming withing a few points of record finishing levels of their own. The Democrat tears are threatening to cause the sea levels to rise at this point.

You seriously could never make this stuff up. – The Washington Post, in its role as mouthpiece for the Deep State, published and then amended a piece Thursday evening that initially contained encouraging news about the potential release of the long-delayed report from plodding, obfuscating, delaying DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on all the rampant abuse of the FISA system that was engaged in by the Coup Cabal. Attorney General William Barr had told reporters Wednesday evening that he believed the release of the Horowitz Report was, in his words, “imminent,” and the initial version of the Post’s report appeared to back that up.

According to the Deep State toadies at the Post, members of the Cabal are now complaining to their favorite fake news outlet that mean ol’ Horowitz isn’t letting their lawyers drag this thing out even further by delaying offering “comments” on the parts of the report that deal with their clients.

Here’s the key passage:

The Justice Department Inspector General’s office has told witnesses who are set to review draft sections of its long-awaited report on the FBI investigation of President Trump’s 2016 campaign that they will not be allowed to submit written feedback — one in a series of unusual restrictions that some fear could make the final document less accurate, people familiar with the matter said.

As is the case in most inspector general probes, witnesses are being invited to review draft sections of the report and offer comments and corrections, the people said. But — unlike most cases — they are being told those comments must be conveyed only verbally, the people said.

Oh, but it got even better:

Even though Attorney General William P. Barr and other officials have been working in recent weeks to determine what should be redacted from the report as classified or private information, people familiar with the process said that the entire draft document is marked “Top Secret,” so anyone who discusses its contents outside a secure government room could be committing a crime.

And…

Witnesses, they said, are being asked to review their sections in a secure area, after signing nondisclosure agreements, according to people familiar with the matter.

The witnesses have also been told they will not be allowed to remove any notes they make about the document, the people said.

Real Americans who really care about America were very pleased with this development, which appeared to be a good-faith effort by Horowitz and others who control this absurd process to speed it all up and deny the lawyers for all these bad actors multiple more opportunities to gum up the works. Finally, at long last, they thought, we will at least be able to firmly judge whether Horowitz himself is a good-faith actor or just another of the teeming masses of DC Swamp skunks infesting the DOJ. At least we’d finally have that.

But no, not really. Like Lucy pulling the ball away from Charlie Brown at the last second, the Post toadies came in a few hours after the piece was initially published and revised it with the news that a spokesperson for DOJ had just basically said “Just kidding. We take it all back.”

Here’s the revision:

But late Thursday night, Stephanie Logan, a spokeswoman, said the office would clarify to witnesses that they could submit written feedback “consistent with rules to protect classified information.”

“As part of our factual accuracy review, and consistent with our usual practice, we are providing witnesses with the opportunity to review portions of the report that relate to them,” Logan said. “Also consistent with our practice, we undertake every effort to ensure witnesses can provide their comments and we are clarifying to witnesses that they will be able to provide written comments, consistent with rules to protect classified information.”

Image result for lucy pulling the football

So, same old scam, different week. No one knows when the report will be coming out, or even how Attorney General Barr defines the word “imminent.” In the world of the plodding, obfuscating, interminably delaying Michael Horowitz, “imminent” could mean later this month, sometime before Christmas, along about Easter or, sadly, safely after the November 2020 elections have come and gone.

Horowitz is the living incarnation of the joke-telling sloth in the movie “Zootipia.”

You could never make this stuff up in a million years.

That is all.

Broken Bones in Epstein’s Neck? Totally normal. Nothing to See Here.

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

The case just isn’t cooperating with the whole “suicide” narrative. – The Washington Post reported last night that the autopsy of human trafficking pedophile Jeffrey Epstein found “multiple broken bones” in his neck.

That was revealed in the story’s opening paragraph. The Post of course spends the rest of this 25-paragraph piece doing everything it can to continue to prop up the “suicide” narrative. The dying newspaper’s writers and editors do this by carefully focusing only on the broken hyoid bone, which is a part of a man’s Adam’s Apple. The piece never again even mentions the fact that “multiple” bones were broken, nor does it specify which bones those might be. It’s as if that word, “multiple”, has no meaning and is to be ignored.

The writers and editors focus on the hyoid bone because it has been found to have been broken in a small percentage of actual, real hanging cases. The problem here is that, even if the official narrative is to be believed, Epstein could not have really “hanged” himself in the traditional sense of that word. In an actual hanging, the victim would be found dangling with his feet off the ground from a rope that had been strung through a light fixture or otherwise attached to the ceiling of the cell.

Big problem: Epstein’s cell had no means of doing that. The official narrative claims he hanged himself using a sheet he strung through the rail of the top bunk, which sits barely 5 feet off the floor. The narrative contends he then got on his knees and slowly strangled himself using that sheet around his neck. Now, the Washington Post wants you to believe that he was able to kneel forward with such force that he not only strangled to death, he also broke not only his hyoid bone, as well as  “multiple” other bones in his neck in doing so.

How did he do all of that? How did he maintain that intense pressure on his neck – which would have required an intense physical effort – without the human “will to live” impulse kicking in? Did he somehow bind his own hands to prevent that from happening? If not, how did he maintain that intense effort until he actually expired?

The most unintentionally hilarious part of the Post’s article is the claim that the autopsy report has created  “deepening questions around his death.” The problem our society has is that no one at the Washington Post or 99% of our mainstream news media is asking those questions.

There is no demand emanating from the halls of the Post or the New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any other major “news” organ in America for Attorney General William Barr or FBI Director Christopher Wray or even for whatever moron heads up the Bureau of Prisons to hold a press conference and give our intrepid public watchdogs in the press a full accounting of the progress of the case. They’re all too busy obsessing over Beto O’Rourke’s latest re-boot of his campaign and Bernie Sanders’ interview with Cardi B to be worried about any of that.

The problem, of course, is that our fake news media organs have invested the last three years covering up for the seditious actions of the Obama-era FBI and DOJ, in the process building a narrative that these federal agencies are to always be trusted and can do no wrong. They’ve spent the last three years trying to brainwash the public to take whatever the likes of James Comey and Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein have to say as the gospel truth – even going so far as to hire the disgraced McCabe as a paid contributor at CNN – and as a result, it has become incredibly hard to now just turn on a dime and express some healthy skepticism about the veracity of the official narrative.

In other words, once a news agency has willingly turned itself into a government lapdog, it’s pretty hard to un-train that behavior. Maybe impossible.

And so we get reports like this one from the Washington Post.

That’s where we are in our society today.

That is all.

No, Pete Buttigieg is Not Trying to Become our “First” Gay President

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

Doesn’t anybody read anymore? – The latest Twitter uproar today is how openly-gay Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg told an interviewer from Axios Sunday that America has likely already had multiple gay presidents:

Buttigieg didn’t want to name names of those past presidents he personally suspects might have been gay, but honestly, I hadn’t really thought it was any big secret. I mean, doesn’t everyone know by now that at least one former U.S. president, James Buchanan, was almost certainly a closeted gay man? In fact, an accurate reading of history tells us he wasn’t even closeted.

Back in March, the Washington Post, in an early effort to award a campaign contribution in-kind to Buttigieg, ran a piece by Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of ex-Chicago Mayor/Obama flunky Rahm Emanuel, titled “America has already had a gay president.”

Emanuel goes into great detail about how Buchanan’s contemporaries knew he was a homosexual, and how the media of the day provided him cover. Here’s one of the key passages:

Before becoming president in 1857, Buchanan openly lived with William Rufus King, who at various times served as senator from Alabama, ambassador to France and, finally, Franklin Pierce’s vice president. They met in Washington as young politicians, and lived together on and off for more than 16 years until King’s death from tuberculosis in 1853. Buchanan’s biographer, Jean H. Baker, believes that his relationship with the Southerner King partially explains why this Pennsylvanian was a “doughface,” a northerner who did not oppose slavery. Indeed, Buchanan explicitly urged the Supreme Court to deliver an expansive ruling in the Dred Scott case — which denied freed slaves American citizenship and forbade Congress from regulating slavery in U.S. territories — and lobbied Congress to admit Kansas as a slave state.

Oh.

But wait, there’s more:

How do we know Buchanan and King were a couple? In 1844, after King assumed his posting in Paris, Buchanan wrote a letter to a friend, complaining about being alone and not being able to find the right gentleman partner:

“I am now ‘solitary and alone,’ having no companion in the house with me. I have gone a wooing to several gentlemen, but have not succeeded with any one of them. I feel that it is not good for man to be alone; and should not be astonished to find myself married to some old maid who can nurse me when I am sick, provide good dinners for me when I am well, and not expect from me any very ardent or romantic affection.”

Oh.

And, so what? Well, here’s the thing: It is a fact that being a semi-openly gay man in the mid-19th century turns out not to have been a disqualifier for someone who wanted to pursue public office. Those sad strictures arose only later in our nation’s history and are nothing to be proud of.

Now, Buttigieg seeks to become [maybe] the second gay U.S. president, and the media does him and the voters a real disservice by constantly focusing on his sexual status. Buttigieg should not become president because he’s an extreme leftist and has been a poor mayor in his only elective office, and who he happens to be married to is not relevant to the decision.

But you can bet the media will continue its hyper-focus on Buttigieg’s sexuality. They obviously plan to try to shame the American public into thinking we are somehow obligated to elect our “first gay president” in 2020, just as they brainwashed so many into thinking they were obligated to elect our first black president in 2008.

That shaming effort worked hugely for Barack Obama, largely because he would in fact be our “first” black president. Where Buttigieg is concerned – as the candidate himself freely admits- he would not only NOT be the nation’s “first” gay president, but likely wouldn’t even be its second.

Read a book, people.

That is all.

Led by Nadler, Despicable House Democrats Hold the Nation Hostage

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

Strategery, Democrat style. – So, first you create a Constitutional crisis by taking a vote of the House Judiciary Committee to hold the Attorney General of the United States in contempt over an absurd claim that he “lied” to the Committee a month ago (he didn’t), and that he won’t release a full, unredacted version of the Mueller Report to congress so the Democrats can leak parts of it to their pals at the New York Times (he can’t do that without committing a felony himself).

After you’ve done that, you send Jabba the Nadler out to tell the breathless, fawning fake news media that the country is in a Constitutional crisis:

Oh, wait, wrong clip. Here you go:

See how that works?  Odd, huh?

Let’s all remember that every step of what has happened with Jabba The Nadler’s committee this year was all pre-planned way back in November, just days after the election. That was when Sr. Editor at The Federalist Mollie Hemingway happened to be sitting across the aisle on an Amtrak train from Jabba, and overheard him having a loud telephone conversation in which he bragged about his and Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s plans to do everything you’ve seen taking place this year. She wrote this prescient piece on November 7, yet all of her “colleagues” in the fake news media continue to pretend this is all taking place organically, because the Democrats just can’t help doing what they’re doing because of the Orange Man Bad in the White House.

None of this is organic. Never forget that everything today’s Democrats do is Kabuki theater designed to deceive their shamefully dimwitted and uninformed voter base. They believe most Americans are hopelessly dense, clueless and uninformed of actual facts, and believe they can just lie to them with impunity as a means of obtaining and maintaining political power. Sadly, they are often correct.

It’s also important to remember these things as well:

  • Barr has already release about 95% of the Mueller Report to the public – Democrats say this is not enough;
  • Barr has already made 98% of the Mueller Report available for Democrat members of congress to view in a secure room without the ability to make copies of it that they could leak to the press. Not one Democrat has taken advantage of viewing it in the 3 weeks that it’s been available;
  • Barr legally cannot make 100% available to the public because some of the material in the Report is protected grand jury information. He knows if he allows skunks and snakes like Jabba and Adam Schiff and Eric Swallwell to have the full report, the full report will appear on the front page of the New York Times and the Washington Post the next morning;
  • The courts have consistently held that grand jury information must be withheld from the public in order to protect the rights of persons who offered testimony but were not pursued by said grand juries. In pursuing this information for the purpose of leaking it to the fake news media, congressional Democrats are actively attempting to harm U.S. citizens who are innocent of any crime.

That’s the reality of this silly situation, which has been intentionally and completely artificially constructed out of whole cloth by despicable congressional Democrats and their even more-despicable buddies in the news media.

Of course, by going down this particular road they have essentially left President Donald Trump with no choice but to exercise his right to executive privilege over not just the Mueller Report, but over any and all documents related to it. This is a right the President could have exercised throughout the abusive Mueller Witch Hunt, but chose not to do so in the name of cooperating with the Chief of the American Gestapo.

That the President now feels the need to exercise that right as it relates to the House of Representatives tells us exactly how abusive the despicable Democrats have become in their desperate effort to smear Attorney General William Barr.

One final reminder: The Democrats and their media toadies are desperate to smear Barr in the public consciousness because Barr has repeatedly promised to get to the bottom of the Obama Administration’s massive spying activities targeted at the Trump Campaign throughout 2016. They all know that if he succeeds in that quest, people are going to prison.

So this is not just a fight for raw political power: For many of these despicable people, it is a fight for survival. These are the reasons the Democrat Party is basically holding our nation hostage.

It is a fight they must lose if our nation is to maintain a system of real justice.

That is all.
