Sunday’s Riot Narrative Having Failed, FBI Creates Convenient New Anti-Trump Narrative

The FBI under Christopher Wray has come to specialize in the creation of laughably false narratives designed to slander President Donald Trump and his supporters. Wray has really shifted that aspect of his propaganda operation into high gear in the wake of the clearly stolen presidential election that he and his raging dumpster fire agency helped to secure through rank indifference and refusal to investigate.

Yesterday, we talked about the failure of the FBI’s prophesied “violent riots” it falsely claimed were being planned by Trump supporters to magically materialize in all 50 state capitals on Sunday:

Speaking of “violent riots,” where were they yesterday? – Hey, remember when the FBI held a big press conference 8 or 9 days ago and warned the nation that they had “intelligence” (such an ironic word when used in context of this raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence) indicating that the evil Trump supporters were planning to stage “violent riots” in all 50 state capitals on January 17? Yeah, we all remember that, don’t we?

So, yesterday was January 17, and it turned out that the FBI’s warning was just the latest in a long series of instances in which the FBI willingly coordinated with the Democrats and corrupt news media to construct a false narrative designed to slander President Trump and his supporters. The closest thing anyone could dig up was the scene below of some clown with a group called the Boogaloo Bois paling around with his BLM/Antifa buds in Lansing, Michigan:

These people are not Trump supporters. Not any of them. Not one.

Well, never let it be said that Chris Wray would allow abject narrative failure to prevent him from continuing to do his duty on behalf of the DC Swamp and its reigning UniParty interests. Yesterday afternoon, the FBI floated yet another laughably false narrative designed to advance the narrative that Trump and his supporters are inherently violent, claiming to have “intelligence” from an anonymous source (because of course the source is anonymous) that a literal army of domestic terrorists motivated by Qanon is planning on invading the nation’s capital tomorrow to disrupt the “national unity” installation of the DC Swamp’s designated sock puppet, China Joe Potato Head Biden.

I swear I do not make this stuff up. From a story at the despicable Washington Post:

The FBI privately warned law enforcement agencies Monday that far-right extremists have discussed posing as National Guard members in Washington and others have reviewed maps of vulnerable spots in the city — signs of potential efforts to disrupt Wednesday’s inauguration, according to an intelligence report obtained by The Washington Post.

The document, a summary of threats that the FBI identified in a Monday intelligence briefing, warned that both “lone wolves” and adherents of the QAnon extremist ideology.

The FBI on Monday declined to characterize the credibility or gravity of the threats it outlined for law enforcement in advance of the inauguration.

The agency instead pointed to remarks FBI Director Christopher A. Wray made last week, when he said the agents were monitoring a “extensive amount of concerning online chatter” and noted the challenge of “trying to distinguish what’s aspirational versus what’s intentional.”

[End]

Look, all of this – the fake narrative, the demonization of Trump supporters, the latest impeachment sham, the calling up of an absurd number of National Guard personnel to turn DC into a literal police state – is designed to cover for the fact that the Swamp knows that half the public hasn’t bought into its Big Lie that China Joe was fairly and legally elected on November 3.

When the people don’t buy the Big Lie, then the illegitmate government must crack down in an effort to make dissent illegal. This a fundamental facet of any fascist/Marxist/communist regime that rules through fraud and force.

Chris Wray and his dumpster fire agency have a huge role to play in that crackdown, and they are playing it fully to the hilt.

All in the name of “national unity.”

Be careful out there.

That is all.

Trump Fires Esper: Wray and Haspel On Deck

President Donald Trump is still president through January 20th and possibly beyond, regardless of what the corrupt news media and Joe Biden think. We elect presidents to serve full four year terms, not 3 years and 10 months.

Thus, President Trump continues his work for the American people, and today that work included accepting the resignation of disloyal Defense Secretary Mark Esper, a social justice warrior who should have been canned months ago. With Esper not out and replaced by Christopher C. Miller, the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center, speculation now turns to how long the worthless Director of the raging dumpster fire that is the FBI, Christopher Wray, and the obstructionist CIA Director Gina Haspel will remain in their undeserved positions.

Fake Jake Tapper, citing no real source that he is willing to actually identify, speculates that the firing of those two snakes will come soon:

If so, wonderful, although Tapper has such a habit of tweeting absolutely baseless falsehoods that no real weight should be given to anything he says.

It is a fact, however, that the President – the real President, not Joe Biden – did telegraph his intention to get rid of Wray and Haspel after the election at several points during the general election campaign.

So, getting rid of Esper should be characterized for what it is: A very good start.

That is all.

Don’t Get Excited About Rumors That The FBI is Investigating Hunter Biden

So, what about this FBI “investigation” into Hunter Biden’s laptop? – Lots of rumors have been flying around the past few days about the FBI supposedly conducting at least one, and possibly multiple investigations into the various crimes of Hunter Biden and the entire Biden family.

One rumor was started Friday by Sinclair reporter James Rosen:

So, the FBI questioned Bobulinski – as I reported here on Friday – pre-empting his scheduled testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee. They were interested and took notes. Cool. That adds some fuel to the previous rumor, reported by Adam Housley and others,  that the FBI has had an ongoing “money laundering” investigation related to the laptop since last December, when they came into possession of it:

Those rumors in turn have led to even jucier rumors, fed by the fact that no one has seen Hunter Biden in public since the New York Post broke the story about his laptop two weeks ago. Here’s one of them:

No description available.

Well, the Friday when Barr was supposed to meet with the Unfrozen Caveman Candidate has come and gone and the only noticeable change in Biden’s behavior is that he’s gotten out of the basement more often since then. I’m not sure that gives us much of a signal, does it?

Ok, so, what does any of this mean in terms of the FBI’s goals?  Well, think about it: Do you really think it would take the FBI 11 months to mount a case against Hunter Biden, whose laptop apparently contains all manner of child porn and emails evidencing all manner of crimes involving not only himself, but a major candidate for the presidency, if they were serious about arresting him and having the DOJ prosecute him for anything?

Please. They were sitting on this ticking time bomb, plain and simple, hoping against hope that Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester wins the election so they could toss the damn thing in the garbage bin and forget about it.

But now the goal has probably changed slightly given that pretty much every person in America understands that Biden is suffering from advancing dementia and really is not fit to hold the office. If the FBI really is focused on investigating this stuff all of a sudden, what it most likely means is that Christopher Wray is doing the bidding of the DNC like he always does and has his agents working on this in order to set up a predicate for removing Biden from office should he win the election.

Kamala Harris always has been and remains the Democrat Party’s preferred candidate in this election. They forced her onto the Biden ticket, don’t kid yourselves otherwise. There is not a chance in hell that Biden himself would have voluntarily chosen the woman who tarred him as a racist on national television during last fall’s debate.

So, come next February, just as Biden’s had enough time to change the draperies in the Oval Office, he’ll be presented with a choice: Resign due to very real and obvious health issues, or be impeached with evidence compiled by the FBI.

Biden is the ultimate Swamp creature, an inhabitant of it for 47 long years. When it comes to to dealing with Swamp creatures, the FBI and DOJ are not in any way, shape or form interested in exacting “justice.” All they are about in those cases is the accumulation of information to be dispensed by their friends as political leverage. Because political leverage = power in Washington DC.

Look, I’d love as much as anyone to believe that Christopher Wray has suddenly found Jesus and assigned an army of intrepid, all-American FBI agents to get to the bottom of everything the Biden Crime Family has been doing to sell out our country. The problem with believing that is that there is literally nothing in the Bureau’s pattern of behavior under Wray – or under his two immediate predecessors, Comey and Mueller – that would lend a shred of support for making such an assumption.

So, don’t get excited about these rumors that the FBI is “investigating” Hunter Biden. Because, if they really are doing that, it is highly likely that they aren’t doing it for you, they’re doing it for themselves and their political masters.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Early Voting Trends are Going Trump’s Way

Early voting trends bode well for Trump. – For those who, like me, are obsessing over the early voting trends in key swing states, frequent contributor Larry Schweikart has a very good piece posted up at UncoverDC.com this morning.

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

As the Democrat lead in the Vote By Mail (VBM) mounted two weeks ago, many Republicans panicked. Not only do Democrats usually lead in “early” voting (which includes both VBM and “In-Person Early Voting,” or IPEV), but this year in particular—with the China Virus—their emphasis on VBM has resulted in stunning voting levels. So far.

Then, suddenly, the Democrats peaked. On or around October 16, their VBM numbers, especially in Florida, began to slow. Although they had one last burst for the “Souls to the Polls” of October 24-25, it was their last gasp. When IPEV started in Florida, Republicans came out like a mighty wave, rolling over the Democrats. To date, they have over 1.3 million in-person voters. (The Democrats have not been, to use Joe Biden’s term, “chumps” at this, turning out 945,000 in-person early voters, but they are steadily losing ground). Democrats had built a 615,000 lead before the Red Charge, and now lead in total votes in Florida only by 242,102. While the pace of Republican voting is breathtaking—at one point they were adding 6,000 votes per hour—they are now on a pace to be well ahead of 2016, when Hillary Clinton entered election day with an 88,000 lead in the Sunshine State.

Ponder that. Despite the most extensive early vote/VBM campaign in history by the Democrats, Republicans are as of today poised to lead by election day. Even more astounding, they are within a mere 8,000 votes overall of winning Miami-Dade County. And right now Republicans in every county from Pensacola to the western border of Jacksonville at or above 98% of their 2016 levels (except Bay, Butler, and Leon which started later), but in these same counties Democrat turnout is lagging.

[End]

There is much more good news in several other states, so go read the full piece. You’ll feel better after you’ve done so.

Larry added one more tasty tidbit regarding Arizona on his Twitter feed late last night:

We are also having very strong early voting turnout in my home state of Texas, where the media has been heavily touting the potential for the Democrats to somehow turn the state blue in this election, just as the media has touted in every Texas election since 2008.

Some of you have no doubt been concerned by the recent fake poll paid for by the Dallas Morning News showing Biden ahead in Texas. Below is the estimate of early votes already cast in Texas by TargetSmart, a Democrat firm, which uses a formula that has proven to be accurate to estimate this in states, like Texas, that don’t require voters to register their party affiliation

As you can see, according to this Democrat firm, R voters are 18% ahead of D voters in early and mail-in balloting, which amounts to over 1 MILLION votes. Also understand that far more Rs are planning to vote in person on election day than Ds are. Texas will not be close, and Trump will win.

Stop worrying about Texas. There are plenty of other places to worry about – like Wisconsin, Virginia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

So, how’s the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign going? – While President Donald Trump was speaking before a crowd of 23,000 Arizonans in Bullhead City (total population, 40,000), Kamala Harris was speaking before a pretend audience that the media wouldn’t even show because it was so pitifully paltry.

But that’s only part of the story. Check out this video clip of the stage getting set up for her 30 seconds before she was scheduled to speak.

Surreal. Absolutely surreal.

But what about Michigan? – Yesterday, some media-sponsored fake poll came out showing Biden/Harris Harris/Biden with a whopping 17-point lead in Michigan. So, if the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden camp really believed that poll, wouldn’t they be skipping Michigan to campaign in more fertile territory? Say, maybe North Carolina or Pennsylvania one more time?

Of course, they would. But that poll is as fake as Jake Tapper’s furrowed brow, so not only will Creepy Uncle McNastyFinger emerge from his basement lair to travel there for a Saturday rally, but he announced he will be bringing Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self with him.

So, what about Michigan? Well, the truth is that President Trump is ahead there, like he told that Arizona crowd yesterday, and as we all know, Barack Hussein Obama has no magic wand that would enable him to turn back that Red tide.

As for yesterday, Quid Pro China Joe did get out into public, making it all the way to a polling place to cast a vote IN PERSON:

My guess is that he just wanted to go see who was running for president this time. Imagine his surprise.

He will not stop this until someone stops him. – We’ve seen lots of stories this week about President Trump having a growing list of high-level officials to be purged from the federal government shortly after he wins re-election for a second term in office. That list is rumored to include worthless hacks like Christopher Wray, roadblocks to truth and transparency like CIA Director Gina Haspel, and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Esper.

Everyone should hope and pray that the name of the little societal menace, Anthony Fauci, also makes its way onto that list of terminations. I’ve been telling you since March that Fauci’s obvious goal related to COVID-19 is to extend the pain on the American people for as long as he can get away with.

On Tuesday, Fauci told an audience in Australia that is new goal is to extend the pain all the way into 2022, as reported by NewsMax:

It’s not likely that life will return to “some semblances of normalcy” before the end of next year, or even until 2022, even though a vaccine is near, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“If we get a vaccination campaign, and by the second or third quarter of 2021 we have vaccinated a substantial proportion of the people, I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a University of Melbourne panel, CNN reported Wednesday.

[End]

So, here we see the little menace trying to extend his vauted “15 days to flatten the curve” into a destructive set of restrictions on life and the economy for two solid years. Given the chance, he will be talking about extending it into 2024 just a few months from now.

President Trump desperately needs to not give him that chance. This little menace cannot be purged from our presence soon enough.

Monday News Roundup: Did Biden Really Call a Lid Through Election Day?

The Campaign That Never Was… – At 9:00 Sunday morning, the talking points monkeys who staff Joe Biden’s twitter account sent a message saying “9 Days. Let’s go!”

At 9:01 Sunday morning, Biden’s elder-abusing handlers called a press lid for the rest of the day.

You seriously could never make this stuff up, folks.

Some outlets, like Gateway Pundit, reported yesterday afternoon that the Biden camp actually announced the Unfrozen Caveman Candidate had called a lid on any campaigning outside his basement for the duration, all the way through Election Day. I can find no evidence that that in fact is the case.

But hey, you couldn’t blame Biden’s handlers if they did decide to keep him permanently in his basement. – After all, every time his elder-abusing handlers let him out he does something like this:

Yes, friends, Quid Pro China Joe McNastyFinger often doesn’t even know which Republican he’s running against, and has to have help from the interviewer and his abusive wife to recover.

Hilariously, President Trump responded to this little episode on Twitter:

Mind-boggling.

The Trump endorsements keep rolling in and becoming increasingly diverse.  – President Trump has made inroads in to all sorts of constituencies the Democrat Party has for decades considered to be a part of its political plantation. We’ve all heard about the dozens of key endorsements that have rolled in from the Black, Hispanic and Jewish communities; the endorsements from major labor unions that have traditionally gone to the Democrats; the hundreds of endorsements from police and other law enforcement organizations across the land.

This universe of formerly Democrat constituencies moving to the GOP column under this President expanded further over the weekend with the endorsement from the Crow Nation, one of the country’s largest Indian nations:

It’s not just the Crow Nation. On Sunday, the Associated Press carried a rare semi-unbiased report quoting officials from the Navajo Nation – the country’s largest – and Oklahoma Cherokee Tribe about the growing support for President Trump in America’s Indian country. As has been happening in the Black community over the past few years thanks largely to the leadership of Kanye West, there is a growing realization among Indian Country leaders that the Democrat Party has taken their votes and delivered nothing in return. Which is not surprising, given that that is what the Democrat Party has always done.

Here’s a snip from that piece:

Myron Lizer has no qualms about it: As one of the top officials on the country’s largest Native American reservation, he’s a proud Donald Trump supporter.

The Navajo Nation vice president says Native American values — hard work, family and ranching — align more with the GOP than with Democrats.

“I’m finding that we’re giving the Navajo Republican voters confidence in coming out and showing their support,” he told The Associated Press. “We don’t need that, per se, but we do need that, but we do need that at the polls.”

U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma, where Native Americans make up 7% of the state’s population, is already counting Indian Country as a GOP gain in 2020.

“Indian Country is not blue, it’s purple,” Mullin, who is Cherokee and one of two Native American Republicans in Congress, told The Associated Press. “And before long, it’s going to be red.”

[End]

Just another little key impact the Trump Administration has made that the corrupt news media completely ignores. Of course, that is also just one more reason why the Democrats and their media toadies are so focused on getting rid of Trump – he’s upsetting far too many apple carts on their plantation.

Here are some more of those apple carts, by the way. – From our “Happy Days Will Soon be Here Again” file, the Daily Beast put out a report on Sunday claiming that President Trump plans to go about firing a whole bunch of DC Swamp skunks and snakes shortly after he wins re-election.

Among the names blessedly included in the Daily Beast’s list of likely suspects are CIA Director Gina Haspel and worthless, corrupt FBI Director Christopher Wray. Oh, be still my beating heart.

Here is a clip from that article:

President Trump reportedly has a list of officials to fire after Election Day if he wins, starting with FBI Director Christopher Wray, who The Daily Beast previously reported Trump believes is part of the so-called deep state.

Two administration officials told Axios that Trump also plans to get rid of CIA director Gina Haspel and Defense Secretary Mark Esper. If not for the political fallout of ousting officials so close to Election Day, one official told the website that Trump would have fired Wray and Haspel already. However, Trump reportedly has no formal plans to replace Attorney General William Barr despite privately venting about his failure to release the Durham report, which delves into how the Obama administration investigated ties between Trump and Russia.

The period between Election Day and the inauguration is traditionally when re-elected presidents switch their teams. In response to Axios, the White House said in a statement: “We have no personnel announcements at this time nor would it be appropriate to speculate about changes after the election or in a second term.”

[End]

Oh, my. Oh, my, my, my. November 4 cannot arrive soon enough.

Speaking of Happy Days… – ABC White House fake reporter Katherine Faulders issued this wonderful bit of information last night:

With early voting trending heavily in Trump’s favor in all three of those states, these percentages – if accurate – among voters who have yet to go to the polls put the quietus to any Biden hopes of carrying any of them on November 3.

Of course, it is a media-sponsored poll, so the likelihood of it being accurate is not good. Still, its mere existence out in the Democrat/media fake polling universe no doubt had hair being set on fire at Biden’s basement HQ, and that’s a great thing no matter how you cut it.

Wray’s FBI Now Interfering With Senate Business on Behalf of the Biden Campaign

Tony Bobulinski, the former business partner of Hunter Biden who has declared Joe Biden was an active player in the Biden family’s mob-style influence racket and provided all sorts of documentary evidence to prove it, was scheduled to be interviewed by Ron Johnson, Chuck Grassley and members of the Senate Homeland Security Committee Friday morning. But then, the FBI dumpster fire decided to intervene.

Despite having gained possession of Hunter Biden’s laptop late in 2019 and done nothing with it, the dumpster fire FBI suddenly decided to show an interest in the case, insisting that Bobulinski meet with its agents instead of keeping his appointment with Sen. Johnson’s Committee. In response to this highly suspicious interruption in his Committee’s efforts to get at the truth the FBI has made no effort to discern for the last 11 months, Sen. Johnson issued the following statement:

 

Why the raging dumpster fire that was once a respected law enforcement agency has decided now, after having held the laptop for 11 months and done nothing, is the time to actually show an interest in its contents is a mystery, one we can be certain that its apparatchik director, Christopher Wray, will not be bothered to explain. One thing we can predict with great confidence, though, is that if you are expecting anything real to come of today’s interview, you are destined to be one extremely disappointed human being.

Christopher Wray Must Go

Just one more reason to thank John Ratcliffe. – The FBI did everything it could to influence both the 2016 and 2018 election cycles in favor of the Democrats with largely exaggerated claims about Russian interference, and completely fabricated claims that they made those efforts in coordination with the 2016 Trump Campaign and 2018 Trump Administration. That is a matter of historical fact.

Given that history, can anyone doubt that Christopher Wray, who led the raging dumpster fire agency’s 2018 Russia collusion smear effort, was about to do it all over again yesterday, just 12 days prior to Election Day? Unfortunately for Wray, though, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe is not on board with the program. He’s what the DC Swamp denizens like to call an outlier, a wholly inconvenient person of power who isn’t going along with the program.

When news circulated late Wednesday afternoon that the FBI was going to hold an important press event to discuss election interference by foreign enemies, those of us who have followed this stuff for the past four years had a single expectation: Wray was about to scream Russia collusion all over again.

But when we tuned into the event, the first guy we saw was not Wray but DNI Ratcliffe, who calmly laid out the case that, yes, Russians were interfering in the election as they have done in every cycle for the last 100 years, but Iran was also doing it and was in fact taking the most blatant actions of the two. There was no claim that either country was doing this on behalf of the Trump campaign, and in fact the Iranian scheme was designed to smear a right-wing group called the Proud Boys.

From a report at NPR:

Iranian influence specialists are behind threatening emails sent to voters in Alaska and Florida, U.S. officials said on Wednesday evening and suggested that more such interference could be in store from Russia.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said the U.S. intelligence community believes Iranian and Russian operatives obtained voter-record information, which enabled Iran to target some people with intimidating emails based on party registration about how they’d better vote for President Trump “or else.”

The senders posed as members of the white supremacist Proud Boys and claimed they had voter data that revealed for whom their targets voted — but that was a false flag, the U.S. says.

Ratcliffe sought to reassure Americans about the integrity of their votes and the processes by which elections are run.

“These actions are desperate attempts by desperate adversaries,” Ratcliffe said, but pledged confidence in American elections and said, “You can be confident your votes are secured.”

Notice follows months of warnings

Russian influence specialists don’t appear to have used their voter data in a similar scheme, Ratcliffe said, but they may.

[End]

History tells us that were it not for the intervention by DNI Ratcliffe, Wray most certainly would have made every effort to pretend this was all a plot to help the Trump campaign in order to try to influence the outcome, in which he and his dumpster fire agency have a very vested interest in seeing Joe Biden win.

We know Wray came into possession of the Hunter Biden laptop right in the middle of the Democrats’ impeachment hoax late last Fall and decided to withhold it from the public. We know he did that despite the fact that it apparently contains all sorts of exculpatory evidence that proves it was Biden, not Trump, who engaged in “quid pro quo” efforts related to the Ukrainian government.

We know Wray allowed his dumpster fire agency to be used as Robert Mueller’s de facto American Gestapo, knocking down doors in middle-of-the-night raids, ransacking homes and offices and generally abusing the rights of American citizens during the Special Counsel coup d’etat attempt.  We  know that Wray allowed his agents to continue with the outright framing of an American hero, General Mike Flynn, that had begun under the watch of his predecessor James Comey. We know that Wray has steadfastly roadblocked efforts by congress, the President and the DNI to declassify hundreds of pages of key documents related to his dumpster fire agency’s actions over the past four years, roadblocks that continue to this day.

In fact, all you need to know about Wray is that bug-eyed Adam Schiff was all over CNN Wednesday night endorsing his credibility and slamming Ratcliffe. Talk about the kiss of death.

Due to all of his malfeasance in office and his utter failure to improve the agency’s dismal performance in other areas, it is very likely that Wray stands to be fired shortly after President Trump is re-elected on November 3. In fact, the Washington Post ran another story based on rumors flying around the DC Swamp yesterday indicating exactly that.

Wray knows that a Biden win is job security for him. After all, why would Biden or any Democrat fire a guy who has done so much to destroy the nation’s “premier law enforcement agency”?

Be thankful for John Ratcliffe, and for President Trump.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: The Media’s Odd QAnon Obsession and Chris Wray Gets Another Letter

I’m old enough to remember when Saturday Night Live and Jim Carrey were both funny. It doesn’t seem like that long ago. Oh, well.

CNN continues the media’s weird obsession with QAnon. – This has been the strangest part of the entire year in 2020, and that’s saying a ton. The media’s obsession with QAnon, a web-based loose association of people who believe in a bunch of stuff that no one can really describe and that only a tiny fraction of 1% of Americans have even heard of, is truly stunning and frankly inexplicable by any real journalistic practice.

Literally every major mainstream media outlet has done multiple major expose’s on this topic, attempting to portray the completely peaceful group as some sort of existential threat to America. As I noted on Thursday, Savannah Guthrie is so consumed by QAnon that she actually led off President Trump’s townhall on NBC Wednesday night with a demand that he condemn the group. 99% of viewers no doubt looked at their spouses and said, “what in the hell is a QAnon?” when Guthrie went into her vicious diatribe on the subject.

The only way to rationalize all of this attention on such a “nobody in the country gives a damn” subject is that it must be an enormous topic of discussion at all the right DC Swamp and Upper East Side dinner parties. Because virtually no one outside of the Washington DC/New York City media/Democrat propaganda bubble knows anything about it.

Think about it: Has the clerk at your local grocery store or barista at your favorite coffee shop ever struck up a conversation with you by asking, “So, what do you think about that whole QAnon deal, huh?” Yeah, that’s not happening. Not at all. Not anywhere.

Anyway, CNN has yet another long, tedious story about the group today, and maybe you should go read it if you have any interest in it. I really don’t, but it is just extraordinary how this media obsession with such a non-issue continues. I made it down to the sub-header that reads “QAnon only hurts people; it has helped nobody,” and realized I just couldn’t stomach the rest.

Bottom line here: CNN and the rest of the news media must be terribly worried about the pro-Trump, anti-pedophilia message coming from QAnon; otherwise, it is impossible to explain the level of uniformly negative attention they have given to this obscure group throughout 2020.

Director Wray! Paging Director Christopher Wray! – Senator Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, lobbed a new letter into the Hoover Building, which serves as the headquarters for America’s dumpster fire FBI. The letter, co-signed by Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, demands that Wray stop withholding key materials from the committee that are in his possession.

Coming as it does barely two weeks prior to Election Day, when Wray is praying Joe Biden will win and thus emancipate him from having to follow the law in any way, shape or form, I’m guessing the new missive from these two senators was immediately filed away in Wray’s enormous dumpster for the next round of burning.

And now we know why Facebook’s “policy” is very simple: Protect Joe Biden. – From our “you could never make this stuff up, folks” file comes the news that Joe Biden’s former “special policy advisor” for the Ukraine, a woman named Anna Makanju, is now a senior executive at Facebook who leads the social media monopoly’s efforts to “ensure election integrity on the platform.”

Oh.

See? I told you. You just could never make this stuff up.

Does this seem weird to you? Because it seems weird to me. – Thousands of women gathered in Washington DC on Saturday for another depraved “Women’s March.” The reason for their event? Why, to protest the elevation of a … wait for it … WOMAN, Amy Coney Barrett, to the Supreme Court.

Again, you could never make this stuff up.

By the way, here’s a photo of the event:

Hundreds protest nomination of Amy Coney Barrett in Washington DC

Oddly, no one in the corrupt news media who invariably complain about the lack of “social distancing” at Trump rallies uttered a peep in protest of this event. Nor did our little societal menace, Anthony Fauci, have any negative words to say about it, although he will tell you you can’t have your kids go trick or treating or have your family over for Thanksgiving this year.

But hey, Fauci’s just another Democrat, and thus a lying hypocrite, something we’ve known all along.

Speaking of lying hypocrites, how about the folks at the World Health Organization? – The chart below shows the WHO’s alleged count of seasonal flu cases from the first of April through the end of September during both 2019 and 2020:

Do you see anything that strikes you as just a bit odd about that 2020 chart, as compared to 2019, which was a pretty normal year for influenza? I mean, if you aren’t Anthony Fauci trying to be a menace to American society, that is.

Doesn’t it strike you as odd that the WHO is claiming that the entire world has seen virtually ZERO cases of seasonal flu since last April? I mean, the bars are barely visible there.

Do you really believe that this year, the seasonal flu has gone pretty much completely dormant? Or do you suppose that it is far more likely that that all of the seasonal flu cases are suddenly being classified as “COVID-19” for political reasons?

This really isn’t hard, folks. You are being brainwashed to continue to accept Fauci’s edicts into perpetuity. If you think this is all going just go away once we have a vaccine available, you haven’t been paying attention to what has been happening thus far related to this virus and the media/Democrat propaganda surrounding it.

Pay attention. Let your kids go trick or treating, for gosh sakes. Have your family over for Thanksgiving. Give Fauci the finger and live your lives like Americans.

Wednesday News Roundup: Sadly, Christopher Wray is Not Resigning and Trump Lashes out at William Barr

Will MSNBC and CNN correctly call this a “peaceful protest”? – Because that’s what happened in New York City last night as the latest anti-Jew Covid-19 edicts issued by Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo resulted in hundreds of Jewish citizens there taking to the streets to protest:

The crowd assembled after Governor Cuomo singled out the city’s Jewish community at a press conference, threatening them that he would “shut down the synagogues” if they don’t get in line with his and Herr de Blasio’s (real name: Warren Wilhelm) new restrictions on crowd size at public facilities. The gathering took place in the Borough Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, which, as I pointed out a couple of days ago, is one of the city’s traditionally Jewish areas.

The new restrictions and business shut-downs go into place on Friday, although Herr Wilhelm said late in the day that his people will start enforcing some of them Thursday evening.

This is America, 2020.

When Twitter becomes the best tool available for communicating the truth. – After Michelle Obama put out a heinously slanderous video smearing President Donald Trump and claiming that the BLM riots are actually “peaceful” events, twitter user Tim Young created this handy side-by-side mashup of the former First Lady speaking while her BLM pals burned several cities to the ground:

I’ve been writing about politics for 34 years now, and have always done my best to avoid commenting negatively about First Ladies. But Michelle Obama is just an utterly shameless and shameful human being.

Speaking of shameless and shameful BLM lovers… – Television ratings for the BLMBA finals have fallen off the proverbial cliff this season, after the national thug league went in whole-hog to associate itself with the violent, Marxist terrorist group.

From a report at Outkick.com:

The Lakers-Heat 2020 NBA Finals have been a disaster.

Game 3 failed to reach even 6 million viewers, according to ShowBuzzDaily. It is the least-watched NBA Finals game on record.

Each game has broken another all-time low. Game 1 recorded the lowest Finals opener ever, at 7.41 million. Game 2 set another new low of 6.6 million viewers,* a record that lasted only two days.

Viewership for Game 3 is down an unprecedented 58% from last year’s Finals, which featured a team from Canada.

With a marquee match-up between the Lakers and the Heat and the league’s biggest draw in LeBron James, a drop of almost 60% is inexcusable.

The NBA decision to embrace far-left propaganda is the leading cause for the historic declines in viewership.

[End]

It’s not exactly a case of “get woke, go broke” just yet, since this current batch of BLMBA players have already been made fabulously wealthy by the country they all hate so much. But these plummeting ratings are kryptonite to the team owners, and will make the upcoming negotiations over the league’s next TV contracts extremely interesting.

If nobody’s watching, ain’t nobody gonna be willing to pay them bills.

Don’t get too excited about this… – Rumors are flying this morning that FBI Director Christopher Wray is going to resign today, which would be a blessed event for the Republic. But that’s highly unlikely, as this worthless apparatchik cherishes nothing more than a steady, if highly-inflated, paycheck. He won’t be giving that up easily.

The rumors started after the glorified HR director called a press conference for this morning:

Far from being a resignation event, there’s about a 98% chance that Wray will use this appearance before a fawning press corps as another opportunity to recite DNC-written talking points about illusory Russian interference in the elections and fantasies about “white supremacist groups” being the real cause of all the Democrat-sponsored riots that have taken place since on a daily basis since June. It’s all entirely predictable and not even worth your time to watch.

Nothing to see here – move along.

Not much to see here, either. – President Trump set Twitter all a-twitter last night with this missive:

Twitter’s users on both ends of the political spectrum went wild, and all the Usual Suspect fake news outlets treated the tweet as if it was actual news. The trouble is, the President issued the exact same order a year and a half ago, giving Attorney General “full authority” to declassify every Obamagate-related document.

What has Barr done with that authority? The correct answer is “as close to nothing as humanly possible.” Indeed, were it not for the stellar efforts of Ric Grenell and current Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, virtually zero declassification of key documents would have occurred since that time.

Someone must have reminded the President of his prior order, because a couple of hours later, he tweeted this:

Hilariously, just a little bit later, he also re-tweeted this missive directed at Barr:

The truth is that it is all far too little, far too late, and none of it will matter unless President prevails on November 3.

Here is NBC News, perpetrating yet another fraud on the American public. – When one political party owns the news media, here is the kind of stuff that happens. As I mentioned yesterday, NBC awarded the Biden/Harris campaign with a $50 million campaign gift of free air time Monday night in the form of a “town hall” meeting in which the Unfrozen Caveman Candidate was questioned by supposedly “undecided” voters.

Of course, as would have been the case on CNN or CBS or ABC or probably even Fox News at this point, none of the voters were “undecided” at all.

From a story at the New York Post:

Two “undecided” voters who appeared on an NBC News town hall with Joe Biden that has been described as an “infomercial” for the Democratic nominee had earlier voiced their support for the former vice president on MSNBC, according to a report.

Peter Gonzalez and Ismael Llano posed questions to the Democratic presidential nominee at the town hall Monday in Miami as part of an “audience of undecided Florida voters.”

Both Gonzalez and Llano appeared on MSNBC in August to show their support for Biden, the Washington Free Beacon reported on Tuesday.

“If we get four more years of Trump, good luck, and good luck with the future attracting younger voters,” Gonzalez said on MSNBC.

He and Llano were identified as “voting for Biden.”

“Something that Joe Biden said during his speech that resonated with me was what defines America is a possibility,” Llano said in the same broadcast.

At the town hall, NBC News’ anchor Lester Holt said Llano “voted for Hillary Clinton four years ago but has voted Republican in the past.”

Two Years Late: Wray’s FBI Allows Senate Judiciary Committee to Interview Joe Pientka

Then-Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley first sought the FBI’s release to interview agent Joe Pientka way back in 2018, but worthless Director Christopher Wray had stonewalled that request for more than two years. This week, likely thanks to the intervention of Attorney General William Barr, the stone wall finally came down:

Pientka, of course, was one of two FBI agents – the other was Peter Strzok – who conducted the agency’s entrapment interview of General Mike Flynn on the orders of then-Director James Comey. Comey in turn was working on direct orders from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, and his vice president, Joe Biden.

What current Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham will do with Pientka’s testimony remains to be seen, of course. Graham’s motives are always suspect, especially so since he did literally nothing in this arena for 18 solid months prior to starting his hearing process in May of this year.

Graham’s action also pissed off staff for Senator Grassley, who wasn’t invited to the interview, and whose staffers were surprised by Herridge’s report and angry they were not included. From a report at the Washington Examiner:

“We weren’t aware that it was happening, and we learned about it after the fact,” the GOP aide said. “We weren’t in the room, we don’t know how long it lasted, and we don’t know what topics were covered. At the end of the day, we just want to make sure that the issues that we need clarity on were discussed in that interview. It would’ve been a lot easier if we were in the room.”

The aide added: “We know more about Pientka now than in 2018, and we probably have even more questions now about his role, given the broader understanding of what he was up to.”

[End]

Really bad form, Lindsey.

But then, when you’re trying to give the appearance of conducting a real investigation without really doing so, bad form is one of the most useful tools in your toolbox.

Graham is most likely trying to run out the clock until election day in hopes that Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden will win and make all of this inconvenient stuff go away. We have to remember that the fingerprints of Graham’s hero in life, John McCain, are all over Spygate and Obamagate, an inconvenient truth that Graham would rather not be the one to reveal.

So, he is slow-playing this plodding “investigation” in order to placate the voters back home, since he is up for re-election this year. But no one should expect the Senate Judiciary effort to bear any real fruit until Grassley re-assumes the chairmanship next January.

But hey, at least Graham can claim credit for finally, at long last, getting Joe Pientka on the record. It’s the very least he could do.

That is all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Attorney 2: “I am numb.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

Employee: “That is not so….”

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

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

[End]

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

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

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

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

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

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

BOOM: Sen. Ron Johnson is not Messing Around With Christopher Wray’s FBI

In this morning’s Monday News Roundup, I noted a very aggressive series of tweets posted by Sen. Ron Johnson – Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee – taking Democrats like Richard Blumenthal to task for their myriad lies about his committee’s investigation of Spygate/Obamagate.

Just moments after I posted that piece, the great Catherine Herridge of CBS News issued this tweet:

Here’s the Text:

To: FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION

C/O Director Christopher Wray

 

YOU ARE HEREBY COMMANDED to appear before the COMMITTEE OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS of the Senate of the United States on August 20, 2020 at 5:00 p.m., at its committee room, 340 Dirksen Senate Office Building, Washington, DC 20510, then and there to produce all records related to the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation. This includes, but is not limited to, all records made available to the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Justice for its review that resulted in the report “Review of the FISA Applications and Other Aspects of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation; and all records related to the request to the General Services Administration (GSA) and the Office of the Inspector General of the GSA for presidential transition records for November 2016 through December 2017. The instructions and definitions for responding to this subpoena are attached hereto and made a part hereof.

Hereof fail not, as you will answer your default under the pains and penalties in such cases made and provided.

To staff representative of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs to serve and return.

[End]

Holy crap. As Ms. Herridge notes, a similar subpoena is also being prepared to send to Jonathan Winer, who was at the State Department while Crossfire Hurricane was ongoing.

This will be a very interesting week, indeed.

Monday News Roundup: Portland Rioting Spreads to Seattle and Chicago and William Barr Slams the Left

Talk about a lack of self-awareness… – Watch below as Brian Stelter proves that he is in fact the single most clueless individual working in the corrupt news media today:

Obviously, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, CBS, ABC and NBC have all existed for the last 5 years solely to tear down Donald Trump. Yes, they have been miserable failures in that pursuit, but the effort has been ubiquitous and undeniable.

If Brian Stelter did not already exist, no one in their right mind could ever dream of making him up.

This happened on Sunday… – Lindsey Graham appeared on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo yesterday, waving around newly declassifed documents and claiming they show “new criminality” on the part of the FBI:

In rolling out these newly-declassified documents, Graham told Bartiromo that he had been trying to obtain them from the FBI “for two years,” and he thanked Attorney General William Barr for helping him bust them loose from the FBI’s grip. Notably, he did not also thank Christopher Wray.

Just as a reminder, the Director of the FBI for the last two years has not been James Comey, but the worthless apparatchik Mr. Wray. Sen. Graham said he was going to “write a letter” to Wray demanding he identify the person within the FBI who gave the Senate Intel Committee this utterly false briefing about the veracity of the Steele Dossier. Maybe he’ll get an answer sometime in 2022.

Maybe.

You should get ready for a very, very interesting week. – Yes, every week is “interesting” these days, but I’m guessing that this particular week is going to be more interesting than most. Obviously we will see a week-long conflict between the Trump Administration and congress over the President’s weekend executive orders, as well as lawsuits being filed against those orders by communist Democrat interests before friendly Obama judges.

But I think it’s going to get much more interesting than that. Here is one reason why: Attorney General William Barr appeared last night with Mark Levin on Fox News, and made his most inflammatory remarks yet about the communist Democrats and the political left in general.

Here are some quotes from a piece at Fox News:

“They’re not interested in compromise,” Barr told host Mark Levin. “They’re not interested in [a] dialectic exchange of views. They’re interested in total victory … It’s a substitute for religion.

“They view their political opponents as evil because we stand in the way of their progressive utopia that they’re trying to reach, and that’s what gives the intensity to the partisan feelings that people feel today, because for them, this pilgrimage we’re all on is a political pilgrimage. Everything is reduced to politics for people who don’t have that perspective.”

Barr theorized that the left “really represents a Rousseauian Revolutionary Party that believes in tearing down the system, that what’s wrong about America today all has to do with the institutions we have and we have to tear them down.”

“I said during my hearing: ‘Can any of you just come out and say it’s not OK to burn down federal courthouses?’ I mean, they talk about the rule of law. They talk about the importance of the federal legal system to protection of civil rights. Well, the heart of that is our court system. And they’re not willing, not one of them piped up to say, ‘No, it’s not OK to be burning down federal courts.'”

A few Democratic lawmakers, Barr suggested, “are true believers” who are “essentially revolutionary in their outlook” and “believe in tearing down the system.

“But many of them are just cowards   and are afraid from, you know, about a challenge from the left. So for them, it’s careerism.”

[End]

These are not the comments from an Attorney General who is interested in working cooperatively with Democrats in congress and outside of it. These are the comments of an Attorney General who is now on a war footing and is ready to take it to an enemy.

Glad to see it.

Welcome to the party, Pal. – Also of note is this series of tweets from GOP Sen. Ron Johson, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Take a look:

Hey, does it seem to you as if Sen. Johnson might have finally woken up and realized that the true enemy to the United States of America is not some external threat like China or Russia, but the communist Democrat Party right here in the U.S.? Does it seem like maybe, just maybe, Sen. Johnson is finally ready to quit referring to seditious scumbags like Richard Blumenthal as his “friend” or “colleague”?

Because it sure seems that way to me.

This week is going to be very, very interesting.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The revolving door continues in Portland, as even the most violent Antifa/BLM Democrat sponsored rioters are arrested and then immediately released to go back on the streets thanks a huge fund providing pro bono legal support:

Ngo continues to blame all of this on Antifa, but note the BLM clenched fist on the sign that appears in this video:

Again, it is completely wrong to draw a distinction between Antifa and BLM. Both are Marxist, Soros-funded domestic terrorist groups that are sponsored by the Democrat Party. Both will ultimately have to be dealt with very violently or this chaos will only continue to grow.

In fact, it’s already escalating again. Emboldened by the fact that the communist Democrats in Oregon refuse to deal effectively with the Portland rioters, Ngo notes that fellow terrorists in Seattle and Chicago are ramping up the violence in those cities now:

None of this is really complicated, folks. We simply must as a society identify who and what these terrorists are with clear eyes and deal with them as we have dealt with radical Islamic terrorists for the last 20 years. If we don’t, then they will win. It really is that simple.

By the way, have you noticed that you have not heard a word about any Islamic terrorist activity in the U.S. since these Antifa/BLM riots got started? Ask yourself why that would be the case. The logical answer is kind of frightening.

That is all.

More FBI Flynn Docs Come to Light Thanks to Judge Emmet Sullivan’s Stalling

Can someone please fire Christopher Wray already? Please? – Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for Eastern Missouri assigned by AG William Barr to review the DOJ’s despicable conduct of the Mike Flynn frame-up case earlier this year, came through again today with the revelation of more potentially exculpatory documents that had been withheld from Flynn’s lawyers by the FBI.

The documents include handwritten notes from both FBI Super-Duper Agent and aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok and Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar related to the January 25, 2017 meeting in which Strzok and fellow FBI agent Joe Pientka attempted to entrap General Flynn. Also included in this latest belated tranche of documents is an internal DOJ memo dated January 30 and hand-written notes by then-Acting AG Dana Boente dated March 30, 2017.

From a piece at the Washington Examiner:

Documents declassified this year indicate that Strzok abruptly stopped the FBI from closing its investigation into Flynn in early January 2017 at the insistence of the FBI’s “seventh floor” after the bureau had uncovered “no derogatory information” on Flynn. Emails showed Strzok, along with FBI lawyer Lisa Page and several others, sought to continue investigating Flynn, even considering the Logan Act.

Notes from the FBI’s head of counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, show him asking, “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”

An email from March 2017 by Gauhar and notes taken by her in May 2017 are mentioned a number of times in special counsel Robert Mueller’s lengthy 2019 report. Mueller found that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election in a “sweeping and systematic fashion,” but he “did not establish” any criminal conspiracy between Trump and Russia.

Boente, who resigned from his position as the FBI’s general counsel effective at the end of June after a decadeslong career in the Justice Department, was the last-remaining active government official who signed off on one of the flawed Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants targeting onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Strzok, Gauhar, and Boente are among the key players in the Russia investigation whom Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, named as possible targets for a subpoena as part of his panel’s inquiry into the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane counterintelligence investigation into links between Russia and the Trump campaign.

[End]

Notably, this latest batch of withheld FBI documents would not have come to light at all were it not for the efforts by federal judge Emmet Sullivan to do everything he can to keep this case alive past the November elections. Proponents of the “trust the plan” crowd, like that “DrawandStrike” guy on Twitter, will no doubt cackle that this fact means that Sullivan is somehow now a “white hat” – just like Rod Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions – who is an integral part of Trump and Barr’s 5D thinking process.

In reality, Sullivan is just a clearly-compromised jackass who is refusing to dismiss the case still, two full weeks after he was ordered by a 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals to do so. As Flynn attorney Sidney Powell noted yesterday, any other judge would have acted within 24 to 48 hours of receiving that order from the DC Circuit, but Sullivan is clearly still hoping to find some way to continue extending the case even past the July 16 hearing that he had scheduled prior to the Circuit Court’s order.

In any event, US Attorney Jensen keeps plugging away, and it’s a safe bet that the utterly corrupt “law enforcement” agency that is the FBI still has more secrets yet to be revealed. What a travesty this all is.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: De-Fund the FBI, Frey gets Fried, and an Archbishop’s Message

Wait. This is our national A-team? – If you have watched any of the various FBI-themed TV shows in recent years, the image you see depicted is one of fit, drop-dead gorgeous and handsome young women and men with flowing locks, expensive tailored clothes, quick draws and no-nonsense personas who always get the bad guy in any situation. It is an image that the FBI itself has carefully nurtured over the decades – they’re brave, they’re heroic, they’re keen investigators who always get their man.

Revelations over the past several years of utter FBI ineptitude at stopping the acts of domestic terrorists they were fully aware of and were monitoring have destroyed the notion that the agency always gets its man. Revelations of the agency’s role in the still-growing Obamagate scandal shattered its image as an agency dedicated to anything resembling truth or justice. Over the past 24 hours, since photos of an entire squad of FBI agents taking a knee to Black Lives Matter protesters in Washington DC emerged, we now know beyond all doubt that the agency’s preferred visual image is completely false. What we see instead is this:

… a rag-tag group of ordinary, not particularly attractive boys and girls, many of whom have obviously spent too much time at the dessert station on the FBI buffet.

Like the parade of corrupt FBI directors we have been treated to throughout the agency’s entire history, any group of law enforcement officers who would bow before  a crowd that is almost certainly infiltrated with domestic terrorists is motivated not by any sense of justice and upholding the law, but rather by politics.

There is no question that reforms in the way our police departments and agencies work need to be implemented. Anyone who knows anything about the history of utterly corrupt police departments in many major cities – like Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, New Orleans, Detroit and St. Louis – understands that corruption and racial abuse in those departments has run rampant for many decades.

We have seen many calls to “de-fund” the police in recent days, a crazy notion that would leave millions of Americans helpless at the hands of criminal gangs. That “de-fund” effort of course targets local police departments, mainly in big, Democrat-run cities. But there are far more good cops than bad cops, and those good cops are vital to the lives and livelihoods of law-abiding people who live in crime-ridden neighborhoods.

However, there is one law enforcement agency that literally cries out today to be completely de-funded and rebuilt from the ground up under new leadership. That is the agency led today by a worthless, feckless and corrupt bureaucrat named Christopher Wray, the one that took a knee to domestic terrorists this weekend.

You want to “de-fund the police”? Start at the top.

Speaking of worthless and feckless bureaucrats… – Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey engaged in his own genuflecting to domestic terrorists scene on Saturday, thinking he’d be applauded for it. It didn’t quite work out that way for him:

It’s like Cerci Lannister’s walk of shame on Game of Thrones, only he thankfully remained fully clothed.

This guy is like Justin Trudeau’s less-attractive, less-effective little brother.

But you still can’t go to church. – These scenes happened all over the country, proving once and for all that the entire concept of “social distancing” is a bad joke that has no meaning:

And yes, even in Vegas:

All of these scenes and many more demonstrate conclusively that Americans are simply over the whole “social distancing” nonsense. Democrat mayors and governors who just 12 days ago were intent on keeping their cities and states locked down through Election Day on November 3 are going to have a real hard time putting this genie back in their political bottles.

News you won’t see reported on CNN or MSNBC. – On this Sunday, I will leave you with this powerful message, a letter written to President Donald Trump by archbishop Carlo Vigano, who clearly sees the true nature of the motivations behind the global protests we are now seeing. The letter is very long and can be read in full at this link.

Here is a key excerpt for those of you who are in a hurry:

In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans. They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the governments of nations.

We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.

For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.

For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.

The American people are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters. However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy? Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception.

William Barr Fires Dana Boente, Identifies Antifa as Riot Organizers

The Evening Campaign Update

William Barr’s big adventure took two huge steps on Saturday.

First, Attorney General Barr went out of his way to call out the domestic terrorist and Democrat support group Antifa as one of the main organizers behind the nationwide set of riots happening in Democrat-controlled big cities this weekend. He also took great pains to note that the crossing of state lines to organize or participate in riots is a federal crime.

Here’s an outtake from his speech:

Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda.

In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized, and driven by anarchistic and far left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics, many of whom travel from out of state to promote the violence.

We must have law and order on our streets and in our communities, and it is the responsibility of the local and state leadership, in the first instance, to halt this violence. The Department of Justice (including the FBI, Marshals, ATF, and DEA), and all of our 93 U.S. Attorneys across the country, will support these local efforts and take all action necessary to enforce federal law.

In that regard, it is a federal crime to cross state lines or to use interstate facilities to incite or participate in violent rioting. We will enforce these laws.”

[End]

Boom. Obviously, Mr. Barr has intelligence showing that Antifa is behind this violence and mayhem, just as I speculated in this morning’s Campaign Update. Barr’s speech today was obviously a stage-setter for action to come.

Second came the news mid-afternoon that the FBI’s top lawyer, the corrupt clown Dana Boente – who was hand-picked for the job by Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray – was allowed to “resign” his position on Friday rather than suffer the indignity of an outright firing. In it’s fake report on the matter, NBC News hilariously attempts to tie the firing to recent criticism Boente had received on Fox News for his role in the framing of General Michael Flynn, a role that included withholding exculpatory documents from Flynn’s defense team.

The fact of the matter here is that Boente has been a bad actor for a long, long time and should have never been given any position within the Trump Administration. The fact that he has held multiple positions within the DOJ since 2017 is a testament to how poorly managed and corrupt the institution has remained, although it certainly does appear to be suddenly making strides under Barr’s leadership.

Of special note here is that the firing of Boente was ordered by Barr and the DOJ, in the process going right over the head of the worthless, corrupt FBI Director Wray. This is a show of incredible disrespect, one that Wray has richly earned.

No one should be the least bit surprised if Wray’s is the next head on the chopping block, since there is literally no one in Washington, DC who has the slightest respect for the way he has handled his job. The firing of Boente also leaves Wray without many, if any, real friends within the Bureau’s top management. Anyone who has ever been in upper management in any organization knows how crucial it is to have a loyal support group around you.

With Ric Grenell currently out of government, I continue to hold out hope that Barr and President Donald Trump will find a new senior position for him to fill. Sure would be nice to have a vacancy atop the FBI to plug him into, wouldn’t it?

Of course, Grenell could never be confirmed to the FBI Director job by the current Senate. But, as we have seen over the last three months, this is a guy who can accomplish a hell of a lot in a 180-day assignment in an “acting” role.

Go for it, Mr. President. As you love to say, what have you got to lose?

Ratcliffe Sworn-in as DNI – What Next for Ric Grenell?

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

John Ratcliffe was sworn into office as the new Director of National Intelligence Tuesday morning. Especially relevant was the man who did the swearing-in: His predecessor Ric Grenell.

In just 90 days on the job, Mr. Grenell performed one of the great services to our country in its history. By the sheer force of his will and his willingness to take personal risks for the greater good, Grenell completely exposed the scope and scale of the scandal we are now calling Obamagate. As a parting salute to Grenell, the folks at the Daily Caller put together a great piece cataloging the major actions he took during his brief time in the job.

Here are some examples:

— Directed the IC to change the way they protect the identities of U.S. citizens contained within intelligence reporting

— Completed the IC review of 53 transcripts from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 election and made the transcripts publicly available

— Declassified previously redacted footnotes from the Justice Department Inspector General’s report into the origins of the Russian collusion investigation

— Declassified a list of government officials who requested the unmasking of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn

— Replaced FBI with ODNI as the primary group responsible for briefing presidential campaigns on information derived from national intelligence

— Declassified former national security adviser Susan Rice’s email to herself regarding a January 2016 Oval Office where progress on the Russia investigation was discussed

— Declassified additional transcripts in ODNI’s possession for potential public release by incoming DNI John Ratcliffe

[End]

The list is very long, and it is well worth your time to read the entire thing. No doubt Mr. Ratcliffe will do a fine job in this position, but he will find himself at great pains to replicate Grenell’s amazing record of achievement.

As his final act on the job, Grenell declassified what Fox News reports as “a slew of” additional Russia-probe-related files, including transcripts of several calls between General Mike Flynn and Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak. Of note, those calls do not include the December 29, 2016 call between the two men that the coup cabal within the FBI claimed as the basis for its effort to frame Flynn. Grenell made it clear in a tweet over the weekend that that particular call was not the property of the Intelligence Community.

This is a key disclosure, since it means that that particular call was not recorded under the umbrella of the IC’s efforts during that time to monitor Kislyak’s communications, but rather directly recorded by the FBI as a part of its own spying efforts on the Trump Transition team. Thus, the transcript of that critical call can only be declassified by the FBI and Department of Justice.

Interestingly, Grenell announced over the weekend that he will not return to his full-time job as the nation’s Ambassador to Germany. One would hope that President Trump would convince him to remain in service to the nation, given that he possesses such rare leadership skills. No agency of the Federal Government is more desperately in need of a dynamic and determined leader than the FBI itself, which continues to flounder around under the feckless reign of the useless, obstructing Christopher Wray.

It is long past time for President Trump to admit that the appointment of Wray was one of the great mistakes of his presidency. If Grenell is willing, there is literally no reason at all to keep Wray around a day longer.

That is all.

Ric Grenell Moves to Secure 2020 Elections From the Real Threat

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

There is no more important issue facing our nation today than election security. That security has been under deep and growing threat for decades now, and not from the dreaded Russians.

The actual pervasive, focused and existential threat to America’s elections comes from the Democrat Party, which has been devising new ways to defraud the public trust and steal elections since its very creation.

Texans tell the tale of Lyndon Johnson’s stealing the Democrat Party’s 1948 U.S. Senate primary election using the infamous “Box 13” like it’s an amusing fairy tale. But it isn’t: It really happened, and it was really the first famous case of what Democrats today like to call “ballot harvesting.”

Johnson and his opponent, Coke Stevenson spent days after election day getting the respective crony county judges to “find” new ballots lying around their courthouses. Every time Stevenson would pull ahead, LBJ would call one of his buddies to “harvest” enough ballots to allow him to take the lead.

After this had gone on for several days, Johnson made one last call to his most reliable crony, Duval County Judge George Parr. Parr told him that he’d already “found” more ballots in his county than its total number of adult residents; plus, by that point he had the FBI and Texas Rangers breathing down his neck. But, he said, he might be able to do something in neighboring Jim Wells County. That evening, a box containing about 200 ballots, all filled out in the same handwriting, somehow cast in alphabetical order, and almost all of which were conveniently cast for Johnson, were added to the count, handing Johnson his victory.

We laugh about this story now, but think of all the human misery that LBJ was able to cause as the result of stealing that election. It is an established fact of history that John Kennedy was in the process of pulling the U.S. out of Vietnam when he was assassinated. Within days after taking the oath of office aboard Air Force One, Johnson reversed that decision and began his massive escalation of that tragic intervention.

Also, consider this: How does the Box 13 election theft differ in any substantive way from the “ballot harvesting” we saw in California in 2018, or the outright thievery – usually carried out on national television – we see in every election cycle by Democrat officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida? Mind you, those people in Florida came within a few hundred hanging chads of stealing the presidency for Al Gore in 2000.

The only real difference is that, instead of “finding” 200 ballots, the Democrat thieves today manage to “find” millions.

Indeed, the Democrats have become so unabashed about their election thievery – which their corrupt toadies in the national news media have worked so hard to normalize in the public mind – that they openly brag about it. Yesterday, House Democrats passed a $3 trillion piece of legislation that contains hundreds of millions of dollars as seed money for institutionalizing it in every state of the union.

It is against this backdrop that increasingly threatens to turn the United States into a functional banana republic, and the utter and complete failure by the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies to do anything about it, that Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell made another important move on Friday.  In the news release copied below, Grenell announced that all election security briefings that have in the past been led by the increasingly-unreliable and corrupt FBI will now be led by the ODNI.

Image

Grenell’s action is just one more proof-point of what an abject failure Christopher Wray has been in the job of FBI Director, and likely another indication of how little President Trump trusts the man. No one should expect Wray to last long in a second Trump term in office.

From a report at Fox News on the matter:

A senior administration official told Fox News the newly-Senate confirmed director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center inside ODNI, Bill Evanina, will serve as the intelligence community’s leader of the “critical effort.”

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WAS ‘FROZEN’ IN COMBATTING 2016 RUSSIAN ELECTION MEDDLING: SENATE REPORT

“U.S. elections are the foundation of our nation’s democracy,” Evanina said Friday. “We are committed to supporting this administration’s ‘whole of government’ effort to secure the 2020 election.”

The senior administration official told Fox News that the change “represents an important improvement in simplification to the threat notification process.”

A senior White House official told Fox News that “the biggest complaint from the 2016 election was the lack of, and insufficiency, of briefings to campaigns and candidates,” referring to then-candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

The last election speaks to itself, in terms of how much was going on, and how poorly the campaigns and candidates were kept abreast in order to protect their campaigns,” the White House official told Fox News.

[End]

So obviously, James Comey’s FBI failed to get the job done in 2016, which should surprise no one. Equally obviously, there is no reason for anyone to have any more confidence in Wray’s FBI to get the job done in 2020.

While the corrupt news media will continue to focus on the Russia, Russia, Russia fantasy aspect of all of this, the real threat to America’s system of free elections always has been and clearly remains the Democrat Party.

Thank God for Ric Grenell, and pray his eventual successor, John Ratcliffe, is as effective and determined in this job as he has been.

That is all.

Daily Caller Source Accuses FBI Director Wray of Coverup in Flynn Case

The Evening Campaign Update

On what has been quite possibly the dumbest news day in American history, we actually have more real news related to the coup cabal that operated within the Department of Justice and FBI from late 2015 through 2018.

Sidney Powell, the badass attorney for General Mike Flynn, issued the tweet below announcing that the DOJ finally released BRADY evidence that Powell and Flynn’s previous attorneys have been seeking through three long years and a span of four Attorneys General and two FBI Directors:

Powell has long accused the government of illegally withholding this and more information for the express reason that it would exonerate Gen. Flynn of the charges in the case. In response to the release, Powell made a supplemental filing in which she once again demands the government to unseal the documents release to her today and immediately dismiss the case.

Excerpt from Powell’s filing:

The government has deliberately suppressed this evidence from the inception of this prosecution—knowing there was no crime by Mr. Flynn.In addition, Mr. Flynn’s counsel has found further evidence of misconduct by Mr. Van Grack specifically. Not only did he make baseless threats to indict Michael G. Flynn, he made aside deal not to prosecute Michael G. Flynn as a material term of the plea agreement, but he required that it be kept secret between himself and the Covington attorneys expressly to avoid the requirement of
Giglio v. United States, 405 U.S. 150 (1972). Exs. 1, 2.

Since August 2016 at the latest, partisan FBI and DOJ leaders conspired to destroy Mr.Flynn. These documents show in their own handwriting and emails that they intended either to create an offense they could prosecute or at least get him fired. Then came the incredible malfeasance of Mr. Van Grack’s and the SCO’s prosecution despite their knowledge there was no crime by Mr. Flynn. All this new evidence, and the government has advised there is more to come, proves that the crimes were committed by the FBI officials and then the prosecutors. The government’s misconduct in this case is beyond shocking and reprehensible. It mandates dismissal…

This case is a shameful blight on the American justice system. “The first duties of the officers of the law are to prevent, not to punish crime. It is not their duty to incite to and create crime for the sole purpose of prosecuting and punishing it. . . [I]t is unconscionable, contrary to public policy, and to the established law of the land to punish a man for the commission of an offense of the like of which he had never been guilty, either in thought or in deed, and evidently never would have been guilty of if the officers of the law had not inspired, incited, persuaded, and lured him to attempt to commit it.”

For the reasons above, and those previously briefed, this Court must dismiss this concocted prosecution of General Flynn in full recognition of the travesty of justice that it is.

[End]

If that wasn’t news enough, The Daily Caller has a report out this afternoon claiming that an anonymous source alleges that current FBI Director Christopher Wray has been leading the effort to suppress all of this information since assuming the job in 2017.

From that report:

Federal Bureau of Investigations Director Christopher Wray fought to prevent exculpatory evidence from surfacing in the case of President Donald Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, a source with direct knowledge of the situation tells Daily Caller…

An FBI official told The Federalist that FBI general counsel Dana Boente was behind the effort to block the release of the Brady Material, yet Daily Caller’s source explained Boente was acting in coordination with Wray. The New York Times additionally reported Friday that U.S. attorney John Durham’s probe into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation asked witnesses about a Washington Post article speculating on potential ties Flynn had to Russia…

Justice Department code clearly dictates that “government disclosure of material exculpatory and impeachment evidence is part of the constitutional guarantee to a fair trial,” and the FBI does not reserve the right to withhold exculpatory evidence.

[End]

The allegation that the worthless, obviously corrupt Wray was leading this coverup effort comes as no surprise to anyone who has paid close attention to his conduct in office over the past three years, but this is the first time the allegation has been overtly directed his way.

Given all of the reputational harm this disgrace of a case has caused the DOJ for 39 months now, it boggles the mind that Attorney General William Barr doesn’t just order his underlings to dismiss the charges. Obviously, there is something at play behind the scenes that has yet to be made public. What that something might be is anyone’s guess, but in any event, this was a fun way to close out another crazy week.

That is all.

The Kennedy Center and the FBI: America’s Twin Towers of Disgrace

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

The damn thing should just be imploded after this. – What does one say about the people who run the Kennedy Center, other than they all need to have their sorry butts kicked? Let’s review the timeline of that national disgrace over the last 10 days:

– Nancy Pelosi single-handedly holds up a $2 Trillion stimulus bill for a week – thus delaying for a week any benefits going to ordinary people who really needed the money as fast as possible – in part so she can lard it up with a $25 million bailout for the creeps at the Kennedy Center.

– That bill finally passed early afternoon on Friday.

– About 90 minutes after it passed the House of Representatives, the Kennedy Center management sends out a memo notifying all of their contract musicians that they have been laid off.

– On Tuesday, just three days later, Kennedy Center management sends out another memo notifying all of the support staff for the National Symphony Orchestra that they have also been laid off.

This is a national disgrace, and everyone involved should be fired and replace by human beings who actually possess souls.

Meanwhile, at the FBI… – It normally takes DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz about 14 months to tie his shoelaces. This is the single most plodding, delaying, not-in-any-hurry-to-get-anything-done man in a city that is just filled with men and women with that same attitude towards their work.

Normally, nothing phases this guy. The DOJ/FBI cabal during the Obama era illegally spied on the Trump campaign and transition team? No biggie. Let’s take our sweet time looking into that one.

That same cabal frames General Mike Flynn and tries to do the same to President Donald Trump? Ah, what’s the big deal? Let’s spend 2 years looking into that one.

Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and James Comey all committed multiple counts of perjury, and Comey and McCabe were sharing national secrets with the New York Times and Washington Post? Yawn. We’ll get to that one next year.

Let’s put it this way: Mr. Horowitz does not understand the concept of swift and timely justice, nor his own role in making sure that such a thing takes place in our society. He has spent the last 3 years doing little other than gumming up the works at DOJ, doing his best to ensure the passage of time dims public memories about all the rampant corruption at that Department, especially within the FBI.

Thus, it came as a bit of surprise that Mr. Horowitz chose to rush out a new, unexpected report this week, in which he found that FBI agents of all shapes and sizes and in locations all over America casually violated the FISA law in all 29 applications his team audited from 2014 through 2019.

Every. Damn. One. Of. Them.

From a report at National Review:

The Justice Department inspector general said it does “not have confidence” in the FBI’s FISA application process following an audit that found the Bureau was not sufficiently transparent with the court in 29 applications from 2014 to 2019, all of which included “apparent errors or inadequately supported facts.”

Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a report in December which found that the FBI included “at least 17 significant errors or omissions in the Carter Page FISA applications and many errors in the Woods Procedures” during its Crossfire Hurricane investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign. After releasing the report, Horowitz said that he would conduct a further investigation to see if the errors identified in the Page application were widespread.

Horowitz’s office said in a report released Tuesday that of the 29 applications — all of which involved U.S. citizens – that were pulled from “8 FBI field offices of varying sizes,” the FBI could not find Woods Files for four of the applications, while the other 25 all had “apparent errors or inadequately supported facts.”

[End]

Note the key fact in this passage: That Horowitz’s audit included cases that were pulled from FBI field offices all over the damn country, and thus involved FBI agents of all ranks and positions.

The next time you hear the increasingly irritating Sean Hannity tell you how wonderful and non-corrupt the FBI’s “rank and file” are, turn off your radio or change channels on your television, because you are being lied to.

Attorney General William Barr naturally responded to this latest Horowitz report with a feckless, meaningless statement touting the “reforms” that worthless bureaucrat FBI Director Christopher Wray has supposedly implemented in the agency’s approach to the FISA process:

Image

It’s important to note that the FISA law, which expired on March 15, has still not been renewed, thanks to congress’s attention being focused solely on dealing with its various stimulus bills. While AG Barr still hopes to have it renewed with no changes to the statute, this new report from Horowitz is going to make that outcome extremely unlikely to come about.

Finally, at long last, Mr. Horowitz has done a real and timely public service.

As for the FBI, the only way to really fix that steaming cesspit of corruption is to completely disband it and reconstitute a new federal investigative agency. The roots of the Bush/Obama, Mueller/Comey-era corruption there are just too firmly and deeply embedded in the muck to ever really be cleaned up.

That is all.

Democrats, Corrupt Media Jump Start a Replay of the Russia Collusion Hoax

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

This tiresome nonsense is never going to end. – As the Ukraine hoax goes to its certain death in the Senate, the Democrats and their media toadies bring back the Russia hoax. It’s all so very tiresome, but it’s all these depraved, disloyal people have.

The New York Times kicked things off on Monday with a classic narrative-setting piece claiming that the email servers at Burisma – the Ukraine gas company that facilitated the Joe/Hunter Biden influence scam – had been hacked by – guess who? – the Russians. Because of course they’re claiming it was the Russians. The “source” for the Times story is … wait for it … a private Silicon Valley-located security firm called Area 1. Not the FBI, not U.S. intelligence agencies, but a private security firm tied to the Democrats. Oh.

If this all sounds familiar to you, it’s like a badly-done sequel to the Democrat/media’s DNC server scam.  You know – the scam where the folks at the DNC have successfully covered up the murder of Seth Rich for more than three years after Rich most likely did the hacking himself and transmitted their email data to WikiLeaks, a scenario that Julian Assange has basically confirmed on multiple occasions. Area 1 is this scenario’s version of Crowdstrike, the Democrat-tied private security firm that allegedly confirmed the DNC server had been hacked by the “Russians,” although we still have no actual evidence to this day that that actually happened.

So, just as with the DNC server scam, the Times’ corrupt reporters and editors run with the story without any evidence whatsoever that Burisma was actually hacked, or that any “Russians” were involved in any way. The hilarious thing is that the Times story actually admits that, along with the transparent similarities to the DNC server scam in this passage:

It is not yet clear what the hackers found, or precisely what they were searching for. But the experts say the timing and scale of the attacks suggest that the Russians could be searching for potentially embarrassing material on the Bidens — the same kind of information that Mr. Trump wanted from Ukraine when he pressed for an investigation of the Bidens and Burisma, setting off a chain of events that led to his impeachment.

The Russian tactics are strikingly similar to what American intelligence agencies say was Russia’s hacking of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman and the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 presidential campaign. In that case, once they had the emails, the Russians used trolls to spread and spin the material, and built an echo chamber to widen its effect.

So, why is the Times, in its role as the mouth organ for the Deep State, running with this narrative-setter now, on the eve of the start of the Senate impeachment trial? Obviously to provide cover for Quid Pro Joe. The whole scam is designed to invalidate any effort by the Trump trial team to call either Biden to testify at the trial on the grounds that – naturally – the “Russians” put them up to it.

See how this works? And it gets better.

On the day after the Times ran its narrative-setter, Adam Schiff sent “new evidence” to Jabba the Nadler and the House Judiciary Committee, which manages the impeachment scam, via this letter:

Included in the “evidence” is a flash drive containing mysterious records handed over by Ukrainian Lev Parnas, a supposed “associate” of Rudy Giuliani. Parnas was indicted last year for campaign finance violations by the Justice Department’s Southern District of New York, which continues to be run by deep state skunks.

The Parnas-provided information supposedly includes communications between him and Giuliani, as well as former corrupt Ukrainian officials. The whole intent here is not to provide any real evidence of any wrongdoing by President Trump, but to smear Giuliani and thereby hopefully render any evidence he presents to the Senate invalid.

Over the last two days, we have also seen Schiff, Pelosi and other Democrats talking about now returning to their “Russia Collusion” narrative now that their Ukraine impeachment scam is about to be discarded by the Senate.

Thus, the Democrat/Media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation is now returning us to Page 1 of its Russia Collusion playbook. Burisma is the DNC, Axis 1 is Crowdstrike, the FBI and much of the DOJ remain corrupt despite William Barr’s leadership, and the fake, corrupt news media is all-to-eager to play its role as willing accomplices.

Here’s a prediction for you: After this Senate trial concludes, President Trump will fire the utterly worthless apparatchick, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and that event will serve as the launching point for demands for another “special counsel” witch hunt.

Given the events of the last two days, that seems inevitable, doesn’t it?

So transparent. So tiresome. So despicable, demented, depraved and disloyal.

This is your Democrat Party, circa 2020.

That is all.

Christopher Wray Wants to Keep the FBI’s Raging Dumpster Fire Burning

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

This guy has got to go. – Some folks just need firing, and FBI Director Christopher Wray is the poster child for that reality. The FBI was a raging dumpster fire under James Comey, and nothing has changed under the worthless apparatchik who was appointed by President Trump on the advice of Rod Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions to succeed him.

If anything, Wray appears to want to just keep stoking the flames of that dumpster fire to higher levels, which he managed to succeed at doing with two moves late this past week.

First, Wray filed an inexcusable response to the December demand by lead FISA Court judge Rosemary Collyer (who has since resigned) that the FBI take action to prevent future abuses of the FISA warrant process. Collyer’s letter was issued in reaction to the December 11 report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed massive wrongdoing by higher-ups in the Comey-era FBI in their efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team and Trump Administration.

Wray’s proposed “solution” to the blatant abuse of process by myriad FBI officials is to…wait for it…mandate more training. Yeah, just what you’d expect from a useless bureaucrat who would be more at home in some corporate Human Resources department than in leading what is supposed to be the nation’s premier law enforcement agency.

Making matters worse, the letter sent to the FISA Court on Friday was signed by Wray and…wait for it again…utterly corrupt FBI lawyer Dana Boente, who actually signed one of the four FISA applications that was used to facilitate the Comey FBI’s spying operation. You seriously cannot make this stuff up:

As if that weren’t despicable and indefensible enough, Wray compounded this insult to basic public integrity by appointing former assistant attorney general for national security David S. Kris to oversee the FBI’s fancy new training program. Kris, if anything, is even more corrupt than Boente, a guy with Spygate basically tatooed on his forehead.

This is a guy who, in addition to being a noted Obama loyalist, is also associated with the scumbags at Lawfare, the group that has provide the contract lawyers who have planned, managed and driven the Schiff/Pelosi/Nadler impeachment scam.

As reported by the Daily Caller:

Kris was also among the many pundits dismissive of Republican allegations that the FBI mishandled information in the Steele dossier. One of Kris’s main targets was Nunes, a California Republican who relentlessly pursued information from the FBI about the Trump-Russia probe.

In his March 1, 2018, essay at Lawfare, Kris wholeheartedly defended the FBI’s actions in the Trump-Russia probe, while criticizing Nunes over a memo he released Feb. 2, 2018, laying out a list of alleged problems with the FBI’s rationale to surveil Page.

Kris asserted that Nunes “falsely accused the FBI of deceiving the FISA Court.” He also questioned whether Nunes and other Republicans would “face any consequences for their dishonesty.”

“The Nunes memo was dishonest. And if it is allowed to stand, we risk significant collateral damage to essential elements of our democracy,” wrote Kris, who is now a consultant at Culper Partners and frequent guest on MSNBC.

Kris went as far as entertaining the possibility, first proposed by Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe, that “Nunes might be prosecuted for obstruction of justice.”

Kris also wrote that the memo’s central claim that the FBI misled the FISC about Christopher Steele “was not true.”

Oh. Ok.

But, in a transparently fake move designed to justify receiving his assignment from Wray, Kris has had a sudden fake “change of heart”:

Kris has acknowledged since the release of the IG report that the FBI committed some “significant and serious” errors in its Carter Page FISA applications. He also conceded in a Lawfare essay published Dec. 23, 2o19, that Nunes’s assertion that the FBI engaged in irregular behavior was “correct.”

This is a blatant middle finger by Wray to President Trump, and the President understands that, as evidenced by this tweet issued on Saturday:

The President well knows that no FBI dirty cops will pay any real price so long as Christopher Wray remains ensconced as the FBI Director. Wray not only has no intention at all of putting out the agency’s raging dumpster fire, he is in fact dedicated to stoking its flames.

The only solution here is for the President to fire the man. Once this impeachment nonsense has been dealt with in the Senate, doing that needs to be Job 1 at the White House.

That is all.

The FISA Court Puts the FBI on a Kabuki Theater Action Plan

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

WINNING, soooooo much WINNING. It truly never gets old. – Once again, every stock market index – the S&P 500, the NASDAQ and the Dow Jones Industrial average – closed at record high levels on Tuesday. That’s the third straight day for the Dow and the fourth straight for the S&P and NASDAQ. The Trump economy is booming along so strongly now that the recession promoters at the Washington Post gave up the ghost over the weekend and sadly admitted that we are not headed into an economic contraction anytime soon.

Also in the realm of WINNING, the Democrats in the House, cowed over the growing public pushback over their impeachment sham, passed a spending bill that includes $1.4 billion in funding for the border wall and does not include restrictions on the President’s ability to move funds from Defense and other departments to keep the wall’s building moving ahead. That, friends, is WINNING on a grand scale.

Another WINNING feature of this particular budget bill is what is not in it: Proposed language that would have provided billions in de facto bailout money for Tesla and General Motors in the form of expanded subsidies for their overpriced Electric Vehicle manufacturing. Those two companies had already used up their allotment of subsidies under the program, and will now be forced to actually compete with Ford, Nissan, Toyota and other EV sellers on equal footing.  Imagine that.

All in all, it was a great day for America because President Trump was WINNING and the Democrats, their corporate clients and their media toadies were LOSING. Funny how that works.

Then there was the not-so-good stuff, typified by the joke of a “public order” issued by the chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court [FISC], Rosemary M. Collyer.

Collyer, who it must be assumed just awoke from a two-year slumber, issued what the corrupt news media touted as a “stern rebuke” of the FBI for all of its lying to the FISC detailed in the recently-release report by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz. As reported by Fox News:

“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the [Office of Inspector General] report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Collyer wrote in her four-page order. “The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable.”

Oh, golly, oh, goodness, how will FBI Director Christopher Wray survive such strongly-worded sentences and phrases? Well, as the FBI itself told America in its response to the Judge’s letter, he will do what he does best: Respond to it with standard bureaucratic BS:

“As [FBI Director Christopher Wray] has stated, the inspector general’s report describes conduct by certain FBI employees that is unacceptable and unrepresentative of the FBI as an institution,” the bureau responded in a statement Tuesday night. “The director has ordered more than 40 corrective steps to address the report’s recommendations, including some improvements beyond those recommended by the IG.”

Many of you dear readers no doubt worked or still work in the corporate world as I did for many years. What Judge Collyer did yesterday was basically what corporate management and HR do with badly-performing employees: She put the FBI on an Action Plan. She slapped the dumpster fire law enforcement agency on its collective wrist and demanded that it produce a detailed plan for how it is going to improve performance in the future. And if it doesn’t improve, why, there might, maybe, be – gasp! – consequences.

Folks, Christopher Wray eats this kind of crap up. The man is nothing but your classic federal do-nothing bureaucrat, a useless placeholder whose only real skill is leveraging federal regulations and employment laws to his advantage.

As the FBI’s statement notes, he is so skilled at this game that he anticipated Collyer’s pathetic letter in advance and had already publicly announced his response to her action plan demand. Thus, he covered his butt before she covered hers.

This is nothing more than classic DC Swamp Kabuki Theater. Think about it: Everything finally, at long last detailed in Horowitz’s report has been out there in the public domain for more than two years now. Much of it had been detailed over and over again here at the Campaign Update.

Yet, in all that time, and despite all of the FBI’s mendacity in seeking its multiple FISA warrants to spy on members of the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team and Trump Administration having long been public information, neither Collyer nor any other FISC judge ever uttered a peep of public protest. It was only after the Horowitz Report had finally been issued that she suddenly decided to issue her “rebuke” of the FBI and its myriad bad actors.

In a just world, every existing FISA warrant would be rescinded pending further review, and a special prosecutor would be appointed to investigate every other warrant the FBI sought from the Court during James Comey’s time as FBI Director. But this is not a just world, so Collyer’s meaningless action plan, which was so predicrable that Wray anticipated and responded to it in advance, will be the last act we see in this particular Kabuki performance.

Everybody’s butt is now covered, every bureaucrat is now protected, and the myriad Americans whose civil rights have been violated by the raging dumpster fire that is the FBI will have no justice delivered.

That is an outrage.

That is all.

What is the Game with the Horowitz Report?

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

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is not a happy man. – The former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is understandably irritated about the seemingly endless delays in the process of getting the report on FISA abuse from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released to the public. Grassley made his concerns known in a tweet issued Tuesday afternoon:

Indeed, what is the game with this long-delayed report from an investigation that started more than 20 months ago in early 2018? The report has been rumored in the fake news media to be complete and ready for release since at least April of this year, yet we still have seen neither hide nor hair of it. Grassley’s reference to “next week when they said it would” is actually a reference to reports from Sara Carter and others claiming that their “sources” were telling them the report would be issued on or around November 18.

This is about the 600th “sourced” issue date for the report that Carter and others have rolled out on Sean Hannity’s radio and/or TV programs since April. Hannity himself has repeatedly claimed that his own “sources” were telling him the report was just bound to be released at some point every month for the last six months. And yet, here we sit, still without this supposedly crucial report.

And it only gets worse: Late Tuesday evening, the Associated Press issued a report that clearly tells us we won’t see this report next week, or the week after that, or anytime before at least early December. Here’s the key passage:

The inspector general in recent days has invited witnesses and their lawyers who were interviewed for the report to review portions of a draft this week and next, a critical final step toward making the document public, according to multiple people familiar with the process who insisted on anonymity to discuss it.

As part of that process, the people will have opportunities to raise concerns or suggest potential edits, making it unclear precisely when in the coming weeks a final version could be ready for release. Inspector General Michael Horowitz told Congress in a letter last month that he did not expect a lengthy review period and that he intended to make as much of the report public as possible, with minimal redactions.

Oh. It is “unclear precisely when in the coming weeks a final version could be ready for release.” Well, knock me over with a feather.

This witness review process could take a few weeks, or it could take months. It could even result in the release of the report being delayed until after Election Day 2020, at which time it could be safely quashed from ever seeing the light of day should a Democrat win the presidency.

Why? Because each and every one of these witnesses has a high-powered lawyer representing them, and those lawyers will no doubt employ every tactic for delay they can come up with, given that they are no doubt all loyal players whose livelihoods depend on the preservation of the DC Swamp and its corruption.

And presto! Just as if it were coordinated in advance, the reliable deep state mouth organ Washington Post issued its own report just hours after the AP report in which it claims that, while the timelines for some witness reviews have already been established, the timelines for others are “still being negotiated”:

Several witnesses have been scheduled or are in talks to review sections of the report dealing with their testimony in the next two weeks, the people said on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.

Even better for the deep state, the witnesses can submit feedback, which could result in further delays and force additional “investigations”:

That could mean public release is imminent, though the witnesses will be allowed to submit feedback — which could spark more investigative work and slow down the process.

Oh. And guess what? Any additional investigative work might – just might – result in new revelations of wrongdoing, which would the result in the accused persons within the FBI and DOJ getting yet another lengthy bite at the apple to review the findings and provide their own “feedback,” which could in turn create the need for more investigative work and witness interviews and feedback and counterclaims and lawyer tactics and corrupt FBI demands for redactions and on and on and on and on ad nauseum.

Oh.

Here’s the lesson for Senator Grassley: You need to stop watching or listening to Sean Hannity and his gang of tick-tock monkeys. Sean Hannity has aired essentially the same hour of TV and three hours of radio five days a week for the past three years now. His incessant, repeated claims of “big revelations coming” that will be “devastating” and result in “multiple criminal referrals” and yada-yada-yada and blah-blah-blah have become the single most tiresome feature of our national news media.

So, to quote Sen. Grassley: “WHAT THE GAME IS?”

The game is delay. The game is being played by not only Horowitz himself, but by Christopher Wray, by Dana Boente, by other corrupt DOJ and FBI officials, by the felons who participated and still participate in the coup cabal, by the witnesses and their lawyers and their willing accomplices in the fake news media.

And here’s the biggest problem, Sen. Grassley: The game is also being played by your successor at the Judiciary Committee, your esteemed colleague Lindsey Graham. If you really are frustrated by all the delays, well, Sen. Graham has the power to convene a hearing and subpoena Horowitz, Wray, Boente and anyone else he wants to and ask them why they are playing this game.

Graham has in fact had that power for 10 months now and failed to convene a single hearing or issue a single subpoena related to this matter.

Tick-tock. Tick-tock. Tick-to…oh hell, nevermind.

That is all.

Fake Whistleblower’s Lawyer Outs the Coup d’etat in a Tweet

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

You seriously could never in a million years make this stuff up. – The lawyer for the leaker/spy Eric Ciaramella, whom the media refer to as a “whistleblower” so they can pretend to not know his name, was himself in the news last night when some enterprising soul published several tweets from his Twitter account from 2017.

The lawyer’s name is Mark Zaid, a leftist activist who has been literally shopping around for fake “whistleblowers” since the start of the Trump Administration. To his credit, unlike most leftist activists who skulk around in the dark trying to disguise their seditious efforts to undermine the country, Zaid has worn his beliefs on his sleeve via his Twitter account, littering his messages with hashtags like #rebellion, #impeachment, #resistance and even, yes, #coup, as in this message below:

Note that Zaid relates the beginning of the #coup to the elevation of long-time Deep State skunk Dana Boente to the post of Acting Attorney General after President Trump fired fellow Deep State skunk Sally Yates. Hey, guess where Boente serves today?  Why, he is the chief legal counsel at Christopher Wray’s dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence, aka, the FBI.

Now you know one big reason why so much Deep State skunkery continues to emanate from that dumpster fire agency.

Here’s another tweet lawyer Zaid issued in July of 2017:

We will get rid of him.” The “we” no doubt referring to the coup cabal embedded within the FBI and DOJ, and the then-young Mueller Witch Hunt that was then in the process of becoming staffed with leftist activist thugs just like Zaid.

There are more, including one in which Zaid predicts that CNN will play a key role in the ultimate removal of Trump from office. Wonder how he knew that?

Do any of you still think that we are not in the midst an ongoing, three-year-long coup d’etat?

This is deadly serious stuff, folks, a real, true attempt by a major political party and the national news media to overturn a national election. This isn’t happening in Venezuela or Chile or Nicaragua or some other banana republic: This is happening in the United States of America.

If the target of the coup, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words that drive lefties, progressives, liberals, socialists, Marxists and all the other things we call “Democrats” crazy) is worried out it, though, he isn’t showing it. In fact, during his rally last night in Monroe, Louisiana, he hilariously read Zaid’s coup tweets to the audience:

“It’s all a hoax. It’s a scam. And you know who helps them? These people right back here – the media.”

Exactly.

That is all.

Horowitz Report Delayed Again? What a Shock. Not.

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

In case you missed it, the report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s FISA abuse investigation is being delayed. Yet again. For the, what, 100th time?

News of the latest delay came from Maria Bartiromo, host on Fox News’s “Mornings With Maria,” who had previously reported on her program last week that the report would be released this Friday:

“Classifications being made.” Well, we all know what that means in the lingo of the apparently hopelessly-corrupt Department of Justice these days, right? Whenever we do see this report, it will be filled with entire passages completely black out, and those will in all likelihood be the most crucial passages that would implicate the actual bad actors in the 2016-17 election fixing/coup effort.

So, every time you get to thinking that maybe, just maybe, Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham might actually be making some progress and doing something real in their own investigation into the origins of the election fixing/coup d’etat plot, you get a countervailing event that shows you nothing much has changed at the Department of [No] Justice. Let’s all remember that this past May, President Donald Trump gave Mr. Barr full discretion on the determination of what information related to these unending efforts to change the results of the 2016 elections should and should not be classified. Thus, if we are now having another two-week delay in the issuance of the Horowitz Report, it is completely at Barr’s discretion.

Speaking on Sean Hannity’s show Monday night, former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz said that the interminable delays are the result of “intra-agency debate, and really a food fight” over classification issues, further saying that he’s being told that up to 10-20% of the full report – which Bartiromo claims is massive – will end up being blacked out. Chaffetz reminded Hannity that just 7 WORDS had been black out in Horowitz’s previous report.

Oh. So, nothing at DOJ has really changed since 2016, right?

But it gets even worse, according to Chaffetz. Fast forward to 3:35 of the clip below and listen to what he says about worthless FBI Apparatchik Christopher Wray:

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here’s a partial transcript of the key 15 seconds:

Hannity: Who is asking for the redactions? Is that Director Wray?

Chaffetz: I have not seen any evidence that Director Wray has been cooperative, but I think you’re also talking about other agencies, perhaps the CIA, the NSA, there are others. I think Mr. Clapper, Mr. Brennan are fighting behind the scenes as best they can, in front of the camera they’re fighting as best they can.

This is disgusting. It’s an ongoing national disgrace. And it’s apparently never going to end.

Another very interesting piece of that clip comes just a few seconds into the video, when Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz acknowledges that he was kicked out of a House Intelligence Committee witness deposition by Chairman Adam Schiff yesterday. Kicked out.

Imagine – just try to imagine – the uproar we would be seeing in our fake news media this morning had Republican Chairman Devin Nunes kicked Schiff out of a formal committee meeting during 2017-18. You would think the world was coming to an end.

This is real, true Nazi stuff, folks. The majority party is now so all-consumed with power that is denying the minority party members any and all rights to participate in this fake impeachment process.

And it’s all being enabled by your fake news media. Why?  Because they’re complicit, too. Never forget that part.

Have a great day, if you can.

That is all.

Congress is a Plague of Liars, Skunks and Eunuchs

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

One problem with the testimony of Acting DNI Joseph Maguire. – Joseph Maguire generally did quite well in refuting the Democrats’ phony scandal-mongering, and made it very clear that he followed the letter of the law throughout the process of reviewing the fake whistleblower complaint he with which was confronted.

Just one problem, though: At several points in response to questions from both Republicans and Democrats, Maguire claimed he was “certain” that the leaks to the press related to the whistleblower situation did not come from “anyone in the IC (Intel Community).” Sorry, but that simply cannot be a true statement. There is no way on earth he or anyone else can be certain that no one in the IC leaked this information or caused it to be leaked, especially now that we know that the fake whistleblower is in fact a CIA agent, which means that some if not all of the people feeding him the largely-false information contained in his complaint were also employees of CIA or other IC agencies.

Granted, we also now know that Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff has had this complaint in his grubby paws since August, so it there can be no doubt that he and his staff have done at least some of the leaking. That’s what those despicable cretins do, after all. But there is simply no way Maguire can possibly be certain that zero leaks of this highly-classified information came from anyone in the IC. He should be forced by the Committee and frankly by the President to revise those remarks for the record.

Yesterday’s revelation about the fake whistleblower’s identity proves conclusively that President Trump has been right yet again with his ongoing complaints that he and his staff continue to be spied upon by the CIA and other IC agencies. At the very least, he should eliminate the ability of anyone from the IC to listen in on his calls with other world leaders. His ability – and the ability of all future presidents – to hold such calls in the future has already been irreparably harmed by the Democrats’ disgraceful behavior over this phony complaint. Getting the spooks off the calls might help to repair at least some of the damage done.

Trump also needs to find a replacement for CIA Director Gina Haspel. Obviously, she’s a worthless hack who, like FBI Director Christopher Wray, has done nothing to clean up her agency and its illegal spying activities. In a perfect world, both agencies would be broken into a million pieces and scattered to the winds, as John F. Kennedy famously threatened to do to the CIA after the Bay of Pigs fiasco 58 years ago. Of course, JFK was conveniently assassinated just two years later, and the CIA’s problem was solved.

The truth about those two agencies is that both have been utterly corrupt institutions since the day of their founding, and that corruption was taken to new heights during the Obama years, culminating in a coordinated effort to spy on an American presidential campaign and then to mount a coup d’etat when their preferred candidate failed to win.

This fake whistleblower complaint by a reported Obama loyalist exists due to the failure to mount any real effort to clean the evil minions out of the CIA. That, of course, is due to the fact that anyone President Trump can get confirmed by the Senate must first be approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee led by deep state skunk Republican Richard Burr of North Carolina. Haspel, a loyal lieutenant to John Brennan during the Obama years, is in that job now because she could be confirmed. Coincidentally, Mr. Maguire is in his job rather than Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe – Trump’s first choice – because Burr gave his nod of approval to Maguire after promising to block Ratcliffe.

Wray is in his job for the same reason.  Are you seeing a pattern here?

The reality here is that the IC remains a collection of corrupt institutions who spy on their own citizens and even their own President not because of Democrats, but because of compromised/corrupt Republican senators like Burr who remain loyal to the deep state instead of the American people.

Damn them all to hell.

About that Adam Schiff soliloquy to start the hearing… – Many Republicans are whining and moaning this morning about Schiff and his statement to begin the hearing in which he completely fabricated what was said on the call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky. Yes, it was despicable, yes it was just another in a long line of treasonous acts by a treasonous Democrat, but why would we expect anything else?

And while we’re all whining and moaning about the fact that the Democrat-toady TV channels are all simply playing Schiff’s latest fabrications without critical comment, why aren’t we demanding to know why not one of the Republicans in that room spoke up and objected while he was doing it?

Devin Nunes, normally a stellar guy, was sitting 6 inches from Schiff throughout that false statement. At least 7 other Republican members of the committee were sitting there as well. Why didn’t any one of them have the presence of mind to raise an objection with the Chair, calling him out for literally making sh*t up? Indeed, Nunes didn’t even say a word about it when he, as the Ranking Member, was the first Republican to question the witness. We were half an hour into the damn hearing before one Republican, Mike Turner of Ohio, finally had the presence of mind to berate Schiff for his act of outright mendacity.

Thus, the reason why your fake news media has that squeaky-clean, uninterrupted video of Schiff making his false statement to brainwash the masses with this morning is that the GOP members of that committee were all sitting there like a bunch of damn eunuchs while he was doing it.

Good lord.

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.

The FBI Raids Epstein Island, Six Weeks Too Late

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

How is this just now happening???? – Jeffrey Epstein was taken into federal custody way back on June 6, six full weeks ago, and the raging dumpster fire that is Christopher Wray’s FBI just now finally got around to “raiding” the pedophile’s “Pedo Island”. That’s right, it took them six weeks to finally think, hey, maybe we ought to go see if we can, like, find some evidence or something on the island which was, if all the documents and flight logs and depositions and affidavits are to be believed, the epicenter of Epstein’s human slavery pedophilia ring. SIX WEEKS.

The FBI was so late in organizing its “raid” that some enterprising soul even managed to get away with the golden dome that used to sit atop the island’s alleged orgy chapel:

Pedophile Island: The golden dome that formally sat atop Jeffrey Epstein's temple on Little St James is gone in recent photos (domeless temple above)

Here’s what the “chapel” used to look like:

Hidden messages: The temple has been of great interest to members of the QAnon community, who had been talking about the island long before Epstein's arrest

That dome is probably now a trophy on a shelf in a big house somewhere around, oh, say, Chappaqua, New York. Just speculating, of course.

[Ok, the dome was actually blown off the chapel by a storm a couple of years ago, but it makes such a great metaphor.]

Given the FBI’s recent history, today’s visit to Epstein’s island by a dozen or so agents is just as likely to be a clean-up and cover-up operation as it is to be any sort of actual investigation. It is ridiculously naive to take anything this agency does at face value at this point.

The reports of the raid – the story was of course broken not by any U.S.-based news organization, but the the UK-based Daily Mail – came just a few hours after Attorney General William Barr made remarks about the case during a speech in which he promised his Justice Department would continue its investigation into the Epstein case and pursue justice for the victims of his depravity. All of which is great and I wish I had the capacity to actually believe Barr is really sincere. But at this point, after so much wasted time and such a dearth of any results at all, I find it impossible to summon up such faith in anyone associated with the DOJ any longer.

But let’s say this really is a raid in search of evidence. Six long weeks after Epstein was taken into custody, what in the hell would anyone think would still be on that island? Can Wray and his feckless troops really be so dim, so utterly inept and incompetent that they actually think none of Epstein’s customers would have had the presence of mind to hire some professional cleaners to get out there ahead of them by now?

C’mon, man, how naive do you all think we are?

Ok, don’t answer that. Nevermind. I really don’t want to know

*sigh*

That is all.

Don’t Expect Justice For Epstein’s Victims From This Justice Department

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

Now that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has committed the most conveniently-timed “suicide” in American history, no one in their right minds should expect our Department of Justice to provide any form of real justice for the many women who suffered at the hands of Epstein and – allegedly – his many very powerful friends and associates.

After all, this “suicide” happened under the not-so-watchful eye of that selfsame DOJ, given that the Bureau of Prisons resides within that organization. And Epstein was not just any random prisoner within that prison system – he was perhaps the most high-profile accused suspect currently residing within its confines. With allegations swirling that a former president – and a sitting one, come to think of it – a former secretary of energy and New Mexico governor, a former president’s wife, a former senate majority leader, and a prince of England were all participants in his pedophilia escapades, no prisoner had attracted more public and media attention than the owner of “Love Island” and the “Lolita Express.”

Making the circumstances surrounding this “suicide” even more suspicious – and the blackeye for the DOJ even blacker – is the fact that Epstein supposedly had tried to commit suicide just last month and had supposedly been placed on a “suicide watch” and locked into solitary confinement since that time. As a result, he supposedly had guards stationed just outside his prison cell around the clock, seven days a week, as well as closed-circuit TV cameras monitoring him.

Yet, despite that extremely high and very public profile and despite all of these safety measures having supposedly been taken to ensure this prisoner remained alive to face trial, the New York Times and the rest of our mainstream news media would have us all take at face value this explanation of events:

“Mr. Epstein hanged himself, the officials said. He was found at roughly 6:30 a.m. Saturday at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the federal Bureau of Prisons said in a statement.”

Oh, but don’t worry, the Times tell us, because help is on the way:

“The Federal Bureau of Investigation will examine Mr. Epstein’s death, the Bureau of Prisons said.”

Yes, friends, the folks at the raging dumpster fire that is Christopher Wray’s F.B.I. will now “investigate” the circumstances of the “suicide” of the Bureau of Prisons’ most high-profile prisoner. We can rest assured that that inquiry will be carried out with every bit of the diligence and due process we saw during the F.B.I.’s conduct of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server. Hey, maybe we can go ahead and give Peter Strzok his old job back so he can lead this “investigation,” too!

*sigh*

Here’s what is really likely to happen:

Soon, probably before August is out, some U.S. Attorney at the Southern District of New York – hey, maybe James Comey’s daughter? – will stand before the cameras and announce that it is just soooo darn impossible to continue in this investigation now that the alleged perp happens to be dead. Never you mind that the existence and willing testimony of all these victims is still available; never mind that Epstein’s alleged facilitator, Ghislaine Maxwell remains among the living, at least for now; why, the DOJ’s vaunted and massively-staffed SDNY just doesn’t have the capacity for pursuing such a complex and difficult case any longer.

Next, a few weeks later, someone at the F.B.I. will quietly issue a written statement that says, “yep, he committed suicide all right, and no one at the prison or anyone else in authority did anything wrong at all. That’s right. You betcha.”

Then, if these developments result in any ongoing uproar from the public or the media, Attorney General Barr will order his plodding Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, to perform an internal investigation into the Bureau of Prisons’ handling of Epstein. Given that Horowitz appears to take more than 18 months to go to the restroom, this will ensure that we will hear nothing more about the matter until safely after the 2020 elections have come and gone.

No doubt most of you are hoping that this DOJ will somehow still deliver justice to these poor women. Well, as my dear ol’ Dad used to tell me, “you can hope in one hand and spit in the other and see which one fills up faster.”

The smart money is on the spit.

That is all.

Update: Barr plays the plodding IG card much sooner than expected:
