No One Should Be Surprised at How the Mueller Witch Hunt Played Out

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

A “special counsel” fake investigation that played out exactly by the book. – Looking back on the two years during which our nation was held hostage to the evil Robert Mueller (“evil” is the only word I can think of to accurately describe him after yesterday) Witch Hunt, the most striking aspect of it all is how few actual surprises the process produced when you review how it all played out.

Millions of Americans – myself included – were angry yesterday when Mueller outrageously turned the entire notion of American justice on its head by basically stating that the President of the United States of America was undeserving of due process, undeserving of the presumption of innocence that is the bedrock of our individual liberties. Two things about this that I would ask you to consider:

  1. Mueller truly believed exactly what he said; and
  2. Anyone else appointed to serve in that job would have truly believed the same.

In truth, Robert Mueller functioned in his appointed job exactly as every previous special prosecutor/special counsel we have seen over the last two decades has functioned in that job. This was all very predictable, because the statute that governs this process is set up to create exactly the kind of wide-ranging Witch Hunt we have witnessed since May 17, 2017, the date of Mueller’s appointment by the also-evil Rod Rosenstein.

How predictable was it? Just for grins, I dug up the Campaign Update from May 18, 2017, written about 14 hours after Mueller’s appointment. In that piece, I predicted exactly how this process would play out, including labeling it as an inevitable Witch Hunt, a term that President Trump would not begin to use until several months later.

I didn’t get everything right – I was very much wrong in conceding the media’s portrayal of Mueller at that time as some sort of wonderful public servant and fine human being, both of which were 180 degrees wrong – but where the process that would play out was concerned, the piece has held up eerily well.  You can read it all at the link provided above, but here are some key passages:

Every time one of these atrocities of federal law has been established, the fake news media immediately trots out testimonials about the man’s … impeccable credentials and character.  He will then make a statement – which will surely come  today – about how he is going to be laser-focused on the supposed topic of his investigation, and he will make damn sure the investigation is conducted efficiently and won’t turn into some sort of witch hunt that ends in some sort of kangaroo court that throws people like Scooter Libby in prison for a made-up crime just so the special counsel can claim a scalp.

…the special counsels of the past have then embarked on a long, unlimited witch hunt that has always ended up in a kangaroo court climax accusing and prosecuting individuals for “crimes”, real or imagined, that were usually not remotely the subject of the investigation to begin with.

…Mr. Mueller’s investigation will inevitably be taken in this traditional direction and end in this traditional outcome, because he is little more than a figurehead, the “upright man”, the public face of a process that will soon be staffed and run by a group of young, ambitious lawyers who will make it their goal to collect as many scalps as they can in order to make names for themselves, so that they too can become fabulously wealthy, career-long creatures of the DC swamp.

And if you think the Trump Administration leaks like that 35 year-old sieve you got as a wedding gift in 1981, just wait until you see the magnitude of leaks that will soon begin flowing from Mr. Mueller’s staff.  Again, it’s the Democrats’ wet dream, not to mention the WaPo and the fake NYTimes.

…every one of the special counsel investigations of the past have followed the exact same pattern of promised quick efficiency and laser-like focus on a narrow investigation, to inexorable and dramatic expansion, to outright years-long witch hunt, to a kangaroo court conclusion.  Why?  Because that’s how this process was designed to work by the creatures of the DC establishment who wrote the governing statute.  It would be better named the DC Swamp Preservation Act.

So get ready for a witch hunt followed several years from now by a kangaroo court that sends people to prison for “crimes” completely unrelated to the ostensible subject of Mr. Mueller’s investigation.

Am I prescient? Endowed with ESP? A modern-day Nostradamus? No, I’m just experienced, possess a sense of perspective that age tends to bring with it, and have payed attention to how every special prosecutor/special counsel investigation since the 1980s has played itself out. The cast of characters changes with each new Witch Hunt, but the process is invariably the same.

So yes, be angry at Robert Mueller and his band of merry witch-hunters who will all go off to high-paying jobs at powerful law firms in DC and New York City, and recognize them all for the evil they represent. Because they are the faces of true evil in our society today.

But if you want get to the source of that evil, you have to also be angry at congress. Because the other thing to recognize about Mueller and his evil minions is that they conducted themselves and their Witch Hunt exactly as we all should have expected them to, because that is exactly the process mandated by the governing statute.

This statute does not set up a “legal” process at all; it sets up an extra-Constitutional political tool that was agreed to by members of both parties, and that neither party has any apparent desire to repeal. The law is an atrocity on our society, one which serves to erode the personal liberties of all Americans. Mueller simply used this political tool in the way congress intended it to be used.

Damn them all to hell.

That is all.

Mueller Gets in a Final, Despicable Smear

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

A “special counsel” who has no idea what the word “justice” actually means. – Looking for all the world like a doddering, poorly-aging man in need of assisted living care and sounding like a stammering, nervous wreck, Gestapo Chief, er, Special Counsel Robert Mueller got in one final despicable smear at President Donald J. Trump today in a press conference at which he refused to take questions.

Reading haltingly from a prepared text from which he never strayed, the man who spent 20 months conducting a depraved witch hunt designed to hamper a duly elected president’s ability to run his administration and serve as opposition research for the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee demonstrated conclusively that he rejects the Constitutional dictum that any American citizen charged with a crime must be presumed innocent unless proved guilty in a court of law. Mueller turned that crucial principle of American liberty on its head by stating that his objective was in fact to dig up dirt on a sitting POTUS and to instead declare him to be innocent if only he and his team of Clinton/Obama hacks felt confident in doing so.

To be exact, Mueller said “If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” when in fact any ethical prosecutor would instead have said something like “If we had found evidence that the President committed a crime, we would have said so.”

The difference in those two statements is no trivial matter. It is in fact the single most crucial difference between personal liberty and oppression. Yet, Mueller made that un-American statement even after grudgingly admitting he and his Witch Hunter team found no evidence that the President committed any obstruction of justice, and no evidence of any collusion by the President with any foreign interest.

It is the continuation of a despicable smear, a depraved act by a highly-political, corrupt and for some reason desperate man.

I say “desperate” because it is hard to envision any other reason for Mueller to have held today’s press event. What other reason besides desperation was there to do so? He certainly was not being prodded to do so by Attorney General William Barr or anyone else in the Trump Administration. He certainly has no obligation to respond via the media to Democrat efforts to force him to testify before various house committees. He certainly had no obligation to make a verbal statement of any kind to the press regarding his retirement from the DOJ – a simple memo to Barr would do that trick.

So why did he do it? Let’s think about that for a moment, because I think he was there to send some very specific messages, the first of which was to Jabba the Nadler and the rest of the despicable House Democrats.

That message was: “Read my report. My report speaks for itself, and I would not testify to anything beyond that report. Now, leave me alone.”

What does that mean? That means that Mueller knows that he would have to answer questions from Republicans as well as Democrat members of any committee, and that not be an easy thing for him to do. He also knows that he would subject himself to perjury charges should any of his verbal testimony contradict anything in the 440 page report he stupidly sent over to AG Barr in March. For better or worse, he is stuck defending everything that is in that report, word for word, and he doesn’t want to assume the risk of having to remember it all under oath.

The second message Mueller likely wanted to deliver on the record today was to Barr himself. Mueller spent time in his statement pointing to the fact that the scope of his Witch Hunt was authorized by then-Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein in a pair of scoping memos, and make various other self-justifying statements. This probably means that Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham are reviewing Mueller’s many abuses in the scope of their own investigation, which would help explain why Mueller was so extremely nervous while making today’s statement.

Mueller’s final message was that he is an angry, bitter man. Angry that his Witch Hunt failed in its goal of successfully executing a coup d’etat on President Trump, angry that he had to shut it all down when a real, functional Attorney General took over that office, bitter that he is now facing personal jeopardy for conduct that Rosenstein had personally sanctioned.

Thus, he issued one final angry, bitter statement containing one final smear of the President, a smear that literally turns our nation’s system of justice and protections of personal liberty on its head.

The proper charge for attempting a coup d’etat on U.S. soil is treason, the maximum penalty for which is death.

There is no punishment too harsh for a government official who would stoop to such despicable tactics.

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.

SPOTLIGHT: The Week Spygate Started To Unravel

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

I’m old enough to remember when the fake news media treated the Fake Trump Dossier as if it were the holy grail. – And yet, by the end of this week just past, old Watergate fossil Bob Woodward had joined the New York Times, Michael Isikoff and other media luminaries in an obvious coordinated effort to start covering their butts as the thing begins to unravel:

This was just one of many events from the week just past that indicate the tables are beginning to turn on the Deep State Cabal that worked within DOJ and the FBI to fix the 2016 election and tried to effect a coup d’etat to remove President Trump from office after that initial effort had failed. Here are some other significant revelations that took place throughout the week.

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz, appearing on Judge Jeanine Piro’s show, had this gem:

We should all keep in mind that many people in our national news media were not just innocent bystanders in the conspiracy to fix the 2016 election: They were in fact active participants and must be held accountable just as the Comeys and Brennans and Strzoks must be held to account for their actions.

Then we had this, from Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch:

The Weiner laptop is not the real story here – anyone paying attention already knew about all of that. The real story is that the FBI found many of the emails the Pantsuit Princess deleted from her illegal server on computers in Barack Obama’s executive office. Just one more item of evidence pointing the finger at the very top.

Keep in mind that the spying operation on the Trump campaign – “Crossfire Hurricane” – was mounted as a counterintelligence operation at the FBI, and Barack Obama received a weekly briefing on all counterintelligence issues. He was no innocent bystander in all of this, either.

Next up, two GOP senators reveal that the spying went on long after the election was over.:

We already knew all of this but the important aspect here is that the letter from Grassley and Johnson kicks off a formal discovery process in the two committees they chair.

And then this happened…

At the end of the week, it was revealed that the wife of former Mike Pence Chief of Staff Josh Pitcock actually worked for FBI Super Duper Hotshot Peter Strzok throughout the entire spying operation and well into the days of the Mueller Witch Hunt.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.:

So what does it all mean? It means that one of the big functions of the Mueller operation was to provide an umbrella with which to cover up all the bad stuff that was done at the FBI and DOJ by the Obama people. Now that the Witch Hunt has closed up shop, the cover umbrella is no longer functional, and the real information about the real bad actors is slowly starting to trickle out into the public domain.

The situation for all the bad actors is further complicated now by the sudden realization that it is looking as if William Barr is a real Attorney General who is focused on doing his actual job, and not just another DC establishment hack who will do his best to cover all of this up. We must hope that appearance is not deceiving.

This was a big, important week, folks. Expect more big and important weeks to follow.

That is all.

The Witch Hunt is Dead! Long Live the Witch Hunt!

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

The Witch Hunt is dead! Long live the Witch Hunt! – In case you are wondering why every Democrat from Hawaii to Maine is screaming for Attorney General William Barr to “release the full, unredacted Mueller Report!”, it’s because they know that will never happen.

They know that Mueller’s report – assuming it is a fullsome narrative and not just the listing of indictments, prosecutions and deferrals required by the governing statute – will certainly be chock-full of classified information and other passages that the FBI and intelligence agencies will want to redact under their handy “sources and methods” rubrick.  They also know that AG Barr is an old pro, a guy who is going to play this situation strictly by the book, which likely means he is going to compile his own summary report that fully eliminates such concerns and release that to congress and the public instead.

Thus, their cynical and unfillable demand for the “full, unredacted report” will then be transformed into claims that Barr, the disciple of George H.W. Bush who most of them were praising just a few months ago, is now just a Trump toadie who is engaged in a coverup, claims that the Democrats plan to keep pounding right on through Election Day, 2020.

This claim of coverup will become a major part of the Democrat justification for mounting their own Witch Hunts that will consume most of the time over the next 18 months of at least three House committees:  Judiciary, Intelligence and Oversight. Party leaders feel they have no choice but to keep all of this anti-American nonsense alive in order for one of their array of freaks, miscreants, commies and outright nutjobs to have any chance of defeating President Donald Trump at the ballot box next year.

So, if you are frustrated that the Democrats who have spent the last 20 months guaranteeing us that Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Mueller has “got the goods” on the President and several members of his family now refuse to accept Mueller’s finding that there was no “Russia Collusion” or “obstruction of justice” and allow our country to return to some sense of normalcy, well, this is why. Yes, it is demented; yes, it is depraved; yes, it is utterly despicable and un-American behavior, but hey, this is the Democrats we are talking about here.

What did you expect?

So, let’s review the Mueller Witch Hunt from a statistical perspective:

  • Money spent – well in excess of $30 million
  • Number of days – 675
  • Number of indictments – 34
  • Number of indictments against Americans – 8
  • Number of indictments against Russian ham sandwiches Mueller knows will never come to this country to stand trial – 25
  • Number of indictments against Concorde Management, whose trial Mueller continues to desperately postpone because he has a big bag of nothing against them – 1

MOST IMPORTANTLY…

  • Number of indictments related to “Collusion” or “Obstruction” – ZERO, ZIP, ZILCH, NADA

And what of our fake news media, this collection of propagandists for the Democrat Party who spent 20 months coordinating their messaging with the DNC on this matter, promoting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy like Nabisco promotes Vanilla Wafers?

In case you missed it, MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist, Rachel Maddow, was so upset by Mueller’s “no collusion” conclusion that she literally wept on national television last night:

Isn’t that glorious?

You can be sure that there was plenty of weeping going on behind the scenes over at CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and ABC, NBC, CBS as well, as all the fake-newsers saw their vaunted Ship of Mueller run aground on the sharp shoals of reality. But will there be any accountability for these people, even the slightest, meekest admissions of their abject, overwhelming wrong-ness for the last 20 months?

Oh, hell no. Of course not. Nobody at any of our major media organizations maintains the slightest concern about getting anything right anymore – they just care about getting Trump. So all we will see out of these despicable hacks – the ones who don’t break down in tears on live TV, anyway – will be a change in talking points to make it seem like they had predicted this outcome from Mueller’s operation all along, and that the “real action” is over in congress and the Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney’s office.

And remember: The reason they will do this is because… wait for it…THAT’S WHAT THEIR DEMOCRAT MASTERS TELL THEM TO DO.

Once you realize and accept that, it all makes perfect sense.

That is all.

Thanks to Donald J. Trump, America’s Time for Choosing has Come

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

Life at the tippy-top sure does increase the old carbon footprint. – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the dim-witted freshman Democrat from the Bronx, or somewhere, took incoming fire from the leering press over the weekend when it was revealed that she isn’t exactly walking her Global Church of Climate Change talking points.

Fresh off of saying “Climate Change” is a “national emergency” that mandates the elimination of gasoline-powered cars and proclaiming that “We’re like, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.’ And, like, this is the war; this is our World War II,” it turns out that the ex- and possibly future-bartender has been guzzling the gas at pretty much the same rate as all of her high-carbon-footprint colleagues. The New York Post reported over the weekend that her campaign ran up bills on gas-powered cars totaling almost $30,000 even though her campaign headquarters was just 138 feet from the nearest New York Subway station.

Even more puzzling, her campaign racked up 66 airline flights totaling more than $25,000 even though she was running in a very geographically-compact district. Where were all these people flying to and from, and what campaign-related mission were the accomplishing?

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the report on her Twitter account – because of course she did – thusly:

So, hey, all you little people: She’s just “living in the world.” Life at the “tippy-top” is good, and her plans involve putting a lot of people to work to force YOU to reduce YOUR carbon footprint – they have nothing to do with how the elite that she is now a part of would continue to live once they have banished those of you who survive the economic disaster they create to live in your new 19th-century existence.

One thing’s for sure: It didn’t take her long to memorize those Al Gore/Leonardo DiCaprio talking points.

Now for something completely gross. – Here’s something in everyone’s future if Ocasio-Cortez and her society-destroying minions have their way: A company in Spain is now manufacturing pukey-looking “vegan steaks” with a 3-D printer. Stock up on the ribeyes and briskets while you still can, folks, because this is where these lunatics want to force us all to go. There is not enough ketchup on earth to cover up the after-taste of that slop.

Hey, another 1-percenter enters the race. – Ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, a former oil and gas geologist who made his fortune as a pioneer of Colorado’s micro-brewery industry, announced really, really early this morning that he’s going to run for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. Because, you know, if Jay Inslee (who?) and this Pete Buttigieg (wut?) guy can run, why not a guy with a chain of beer pubs?

Makes perfect sense to me.

They were just kiddin’ about that whole “Russia Collusion” thing. – If you thought that the end of the Robert Mueller witch hunt would mean the Democrats would allow the nation to return to some sense of normalcy and regular order in its national politics, well, I want a double shot of whatever it is you’ve been drinking.

The end of the Witch Hunt over the Russia Collusion fantasy concocted by the DOJ/FBI cabal only means that the Democrats in congress move onto the next phase of their 4-year effort to deconstruct this President and presidency. Thus, the House Judiciary Committee chaired by despicable New York congressman Jerrold Nadler will issue no fewer than 60 subpoenas seeking documents and testimony in its own Witch Hunt, which will attempt to dummy up a claim of “obstruction of justice” by President Donald Trump.

Nevermind that Mueller has already spent months trying to create that case and failed, nevermind that the whole fantasy is based on the President’s firing of Teenage Drama Queen James Comey, a man who every Democrat in Washington had publicly advocated firing – none of those things matter. What matters to the Democrats is keeping up the appearance of chaos in Washington, because they know it is literally their only hope of beating Trump in the 2020 election.

If they allow a return to normal order, this President would plow his way to a landslide victory over whichever candidate emerges from the Democrats’ field of miscreants, hacks, fake Indians, ageing punk rockers and beta-males that would rival Reagan’s thrashing of Walter Mondale in 1984. So there will be no normal order in Washington, folks. Instead, there will be 18 months of subpoenas, kangaroo courts and disgraceful displays of demagoguery, all of which will be treated seriously by the Democrat lapdogs who infest our nation’s fake news media.

There’s nothing any of us out here in Flyover Country can do about it, other than to be sure to turn out to vote for Trump in 2020, so you might as well just sit back and enjoy the spectacle.

Some of you have wondered why it is that I like to say that I never tire of typing the three glorious words “President Donald Trump.” Well, this is why. This exact thing. He has quite literally driven the entire Democrat Party stark, raving mad. Don’t misunderstand – Democrats were nuts long before Donald Trump ever thought about running for president. But in the past they felt the need to at least put up a pretense of normalcy. They weren’t anything like you and me, but they felt the need to make like they were in order to attract your votes, which is why people who were otherwise good and decent and fairly intelligent could justify voting for Democrats.

But now the mask is completely off. The pretense is gone. The Democrat Party, over just the past 30 days, has happily revealed itself to be the party of killing babies, the party of open borders, the party of socialist fascism, the party that is perfectly willing to do everything it can to protect woman abusers and guys nicknamed “CoonMan” if they hold elective office with a “D” next to their name.

It is no longer possible for good and decent people to cast their votes for Democrats. As Ronald Reagan famously said, “the time for choosing is upon us,” and there is no longer any place to hide.

Glorious.

That is all.

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):

Did the Whole Russia Collusion Fantasy Game Just Change?

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Suddenly, starting over this past weekend, it’s beginning to feel like the tide of national events vis a vis the whole Democrat/Media Russia Collusion fantasy play has begun to turn.  So many key things have taken place since late last week that I’ll probably miss some of them, but I’ll give it a try:

Page Trumps Strzok – It all seems to have started with the closed-door deposition testimony by Super-Duper FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s ex-girlfriend, ex-DOJ lawyer Lisa Page, which took place on July 19-20.  According to GOP Rep. Mark Meadows and others who were present, Page was a far more credible witness than  her spawn of Satan ex-boyfriend, and her version of events differed significantly from the line of BS Strzok spewed during his testimony the previous week.  It’s key to note that no one in the media or the Democrat Party is demanding that the transcript of her testimony be made public.

Another Housecleaning at FBI – Also on July 19 came news that no fewer than three senior cyber-security officials at the FBI were announcing their “retirements” on the same day.  “What a coincidence!”, said the fake news media in unison.

The three “retiring” officials are  Scott Smith, Assistant Director over the FBI’s cyber division; David Resch, the executive assistant director of the Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch; and Carl Ghattas, the executive assistant director of the National Security Branch.  Coming as they do in the wake of President Trump’s summit with Vladimir Putin and all the hysteria over supposed Russian threats to meddle in the mid-term elections, it seems highly unlikely these three departures are actually mere coincidence.  It all smells much more like a house-cleaning, similar to the one we saw during December last year, when Strzok, Page and Bruce Ohr were all demoted within days of one another.

FISA Abuse Exposed – Saturday, July 21, the Big Kahuna dropped, as Judicial Watch, having won a battle in federal court, released 412 pages of documents that form the basis for the FISA warrant and its three subsequent renewals that in turn formed the after-the-fact justification for the FBI/DOJ’s spying efforts on the Trump Campaign, Transition and Administration.  The documents were highly redacted – very predictably – but what wasn’t redacted was extremely revealing, proving that the FBI/DOJ anti-Trump cabal relied almost solely on the Fusion GPS fake Trump Dossier as its basis for defrauding the FISA Court and obtaining the warrant.

Trump Tweets – Meanwhile, President Trump himself was very busy on Twitter, and in thinking about the following tweets, it’s key to keep in mind that Trump knows everything that really happened, who did what, and has known all of this most likely since before he took office.  Here are some tweets that really stand out to me in this context:

Mind you, these first two tweets were issued before Judicial Watch dropped the FISA documents.  The key to me is the final sentence of the 2nd tweet:  “Republicans better get smart fast and expose what they are doing!”  The President doesn’t just burp these tweets out for no reason, and that sure seems like foreshadowing to me.

Then, after the Judicial Watch document dump, the President repeated the same theme in another pair of tweets:

“Republicans must get tough now.  An illegal Scam!”  More foreshadowing.

Some in congress are listening – Later on Sunday  morning, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte appeared on Fox News and made it clear to host Maria Bartiromo that he had heard the President’s message.  In that interview, Chairman Goodlatte “discusses John Brennan, James Comey, and Loretta Lynch being sought for questioning on their actions during the 2016 Presidential Election; as well as compliance responses from Peter Strzok, Rod Rosenstein and Lisa Page.”

An Uproar From The Amen Chorus – Throughout the last week, the cacophony of anti-Trump screeds coming from the Obama loyalist Amen Chorus has grown increasingly shrill.  This includes not just former officials in the Obama Administration, but their media collaborators as well.  With the Page testimony not going as they had hoped and the release of the FISA fraud documents, they all can now clearly see the walls beginning to close in.  The lashing out is a sign of desperation.

The desperation became even more clear on Monday, July 23, when Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ announcement that President Trump was considering revoking the security clearances of Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Rice, Hayden and McCabe elicited an audible gasp from the assembled preening peacocks-and-hens of the White House press corps.  Speaker Paul Ryan, himself an incurable creature of the DC Swamp, laughed the President’s threat off as a “trolling” exercise, but none of the six targets and their supporters in the fake news media were laughing at what was a clear signal from the White House that the game is about to change.

Hey, Mr. Speaker, if you want an example of a Trump Troll, here’s a hilarious (and true) one from earlier today:

 

Hey, Somebody Woke Up Sessions! – Finally, while the President’s “Republicans must get tough now” message was in part meant for Republicans in congress like Goodlatte, it also was likely a signal to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that it’s time to end his long seeming hibernation from the public eye.  And just like that, there was Sessions earlier today, addressing a high school leadership conference in Washington, DC, joining in with the chant of “lock her up, lock her up!” coming from the crowd.

Now, that could just be a coincidence, but have you ever, in the 17 months since he took office, seen AG Sessions participate in that kind of targeting at the Pantsuit Princess?  No?  Neither have I.

Look, all of the stuff I’ve laid out here could be just a grand, if highly unlikely, coincidence of events all pointing in the same direction.  But I don’t believe in coincidences and neither should you.

This sure feels like a turning to me.  The next few weeks could be a ton of fun.

That is all.

Mueller’s Big Problem: He Keeps Drawing Judges Who Have Read the Constitution

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – There has been much cause for optimism lately as Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his evil band of Clinton/Obama hacks have repeatedly run into trouble when their cases must finally be heard in federal court.

Mueller’s people most famously had to endure a lecture from Federal Judge T.S. Ellis on May 4 when the judge lambasted them for basically lying to the court in an effort to claim their case against former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort has anything to do with the Special Counsel’s charge to investigate the Democrat/Media-constructed Russia Collusion fantasy.  Their day before Judge Ellis became even worse when he demanded that they produce the memos from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that laid out the scope of their investigation, and do so by this coming Friday.  The oily Mr. Rosenstein has fought tooth and nail to keep those memos confidential, on the specious grounds that they contain “classified” information.  Oops.

The Mueller team had another major stumble in court the very next day, when Federal Judge Dabney Friedrich denied their motion for a delay in their absurd case against the Russian firm Concord Management.  Concord is one of the 13 Russian entities that Mueller and his evil minions indicted back in February in a transparently dishonest effort to show their investigation has at least some tenuous connection to the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play.

To make matters even more Keystone Cop-ish, one of the Concord-related companies indicted by Mueller’s band of aspiring circus clowns, Concord Catering, did not even exist at the time the Mueller team claims it was engaged in social media shenanigans.  Oops.

The catch in issuing those indictments, of course, was that the Mueller minions never expected to have to prosecute any of their specious charges, because they assumed none of the accused would actually show up in a U.S. court voluntarily.  But Concord showed up, demanded the Court enforce their constitutional right to a speedy trial, and Judge Friedrich ordered the case to move forward.  Oops.

Mueller’s case against former Trump National Security Advisor General Mike Flynn is also hanging on by a thread at this point.  It has become increasingly obvious over the six months since Flynn entered his guilty plea to lying to the FBI that Mueller’s evil minions withheld exculpatory evidence that would likely clear Flynn of the charge.  The tide in this case began to turn when it was taken over by Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is well-known for his disdain for prosecutors who mislead the court.  Oops.

The developments in all three of these cases clearly demonstrate the utterly dishonest nature of the Mueller “investigation.”  Mueller’s operation is not an “investigation” at all:  It is in fact the witch hunt that President Trump has repeatedly alleged it to be.  Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of Mueller’s baseless appointment by Rosenstein, and in all that time Mueller and his ever-expanding team of witch-hunters have uncovered exactly zero evidence that anyone in the Trump Campaign or transition team colluded with any Russian to influence the 2016 election outcome.

The series of court setbacks are all very encouraging for those non-Democrats and non-fake journalists who have realized all along what a sham the entire Mueller enterprise has been.  But we all need to take a little breath here and realize that all of these encouraging developments have come about largely due to the luck of the draw.  The fact is that to this point, Mueller has suffered some very bad luck in terms of the judges who have been assigned to his cases.

Although a Clinton appointee to the federal bench, Judge Sullivan has long been well-known as a judge who forces both sides to adhere firmly to the rules of evidence and repect for the process.  The case against General Flynn appeared to be a done deal under the original judge assigned to the case, Rudolph Contreras, an Obama appointee to the federal bench.  Contreras was forced to recuse himself from the case in early December when it was publicly revealed that his is a FISA judge who likely signed off on one of the FISA warrants that gave the FBI authority to spy on the Trump Campaign in 2016.  Contreras had no problem allowing Mueller to just do as he pleased.

Judge Ellis is a Reagan appointee.  Judge Friedrich is a Trump appointee.  Both judges have, inconveniently for Mueller and his evil minions, actually read the Constitution and hold a healthy respect for it.  Had Mueller drawn Obama appointees in the Concord or Manafort cases, he’d likely not be having any problems in either case.

It’s key to note that judges are assigned to these cases on a random draw basis.  Thus, to this point, Mueller has been extremely unlucky, given that there are more Clinton and Obama appointees populating the Virginia and Washington, DC federal bench – where Mueller’s grand juries are convened – than there are Reagan, Bush and Trump appointees.

We can’t count on that luck to continue.  At some point Mueller will draw an Obama judge, and any notion of due process and constitutional protections for the defense will fly right out the window.  Just something to think about as this mess keeps moving ahead.

Just another day in let’s hope Mueller’s bad luck continues America.

That is all.
