When Do We Get Our Peaceful Transfer of Power From 2016?

Today we had more revelations about FBI/Obama Administration wrongdoing in the targeting of General Mike Flynn and other incoming officials in the Trump Administration that took place during the transition period from November 2016 through January 20, 2017.

Here’s an excerpt from a report by Mollie Hemingway and Sean Davis at the Federalist:

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show. The explosive new communications and internal FBI notes were disclosed in federal court filings today from Sidney Powell, the attorney who heads Michael Flynn’s legal defense team.

“[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance,” one agent texted on Jan. 10, 2017, the same day CNN leaked details that then-President-elect Trump had been briefed by Comey about the bogus Christopher Steele dossier. That briefing of Trump was used as a pretext to legitimize the debunked dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign and compiled by a foreign intelligence officer who was working for a sanctioned Russian oligarch.

“Holy crap,” an agent responded. “All the analysts too?”

“Yep,” the first agent said. “All the folks at the Agency as well.”

“[C]an I ask who are the most likely litigators?” an agent responded. “[A]s far as potentially suing y’all[?]”

“[H]aha, who knows….I think [t]he concern when we got it was that there was a big leak at DOJ and the NYT among others was going to do a piece,” the first agent said.

While the names of the agents responsible for the texts are redacted, the legal filing from Powell, quoting communications from the Department of Justice (DOJ), states that the latest document production included handwritten notes and texts from Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and FBI analysts who worked on the FBI’s investigation of Flynn.

Agents also said they were worried about how a new attorney general might view the actions taken against Trump during the investigation. Shortly after then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) was confirmed to be Trump’s new attorney general, congressional Democrats, media, and Obama holdovers within DOJ immediately moved to force Sessions to recuse himself from overseeing the department’s investigations against Trump.

“[T]he new AG might have some questions….then yada yada yada…we all get screwed,” one agent wrote.

[End]

Go read the full piece – it is damning as hell.

While our nation’s news media wails about President Trump reserving the right to challenge rampant Democrat voter fraud that we all know is coming this November, I can’t help sitting at my desk thinking, “When do we get our peaceful transition for 2016?”

Because the fact of the matter is, we never got one from the Democrats. Throughout that period of transition in late 2016/early 2017, the outgoing Obama Administration, which had illegally spied on the Trump Campaign throughout 2016, remained at war with the incoming President and his people. We know today that that war was in fact planned and coordinated at the highest levels in the White House, up to and including Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

In addition to that, we had the Pantsuit Princess and her minions running all over the world whining to anyone who could stand to listen that the Russians had stolen the election, labeling the President-Elect as a Russian Agent and illegitimate. The Democrat Party itself got in on the act by coordinating with George Soros and his myriad front groups to create, stand up and fund Antifa exactly as Obama, John Kerry and John McCain had created, stood up and funded the Syrian “rebel” group that ultimately became ISIS several years before.

The war on the Trump transition team then continued into his presidency with the efforts by James Comey to entrap the new President into some pretense for an obstruction of justice charge, efforts by disloyal cabinet members like Mad Dog Mattis and Rex Tillerson to convince others to join them in a 25th amendment disqualification, and Rod Rosenstein’s coordination with Comey and Robert Mueller to create the pretense for the appointment of a Special Counsel.

That all flowed into the 20 month-long Gestapo-like Mueller Investigation whose failure next led to Adam Schiff’s impeachment hoax, whose failure has led this year to all the various hoaxes related to COVID-19, whose failure led to the full summer of Democrat-sponsored riots, whose failure has now created the need for even more riots leading up to Election Day.

The simple fact of the matter is that this current “peaceful transition” uproar targeting President Trump is just one more example of Democrat projection related to their steadfast refusal to ever concede the 2016 election and their remaining at open war with this President and his administration to this day.

Amid all of this uproar and rioting and projection, and with the first debate just five days away, the Biden campaign handlers called a lid on the day yet again today at 8:20 a.m. Eastern Time. This is the 9th day in the 24 days of September in which this has happened, as the Unfrozen Caveman Candidate remains suspiciously unable to perform.

If they are this shrill and violent and desperate now, imagine how shrill and violent and desperate they will be come November.

That is all.

The Steele Sub-Source Revelation Shows How Complex John Durham’s Job Really Is

If you’ve been wondering what all the hullabaloo over the weekend about the Steele Dossier and Christopher Steele’s “sub-source” was all about, and why it’s important, let me try to explain it to you:

First, why it’s important:

It’s important because the Steele Dossier was used by the Obama FBI, led by James Comey, as pretty much the sole support for securing FISA warrants allowing it to spy on the Trump Campaign. Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and all the rest lied to the FISA court by characterizing the Dossier, Steele himself, and Steele’s unidentified “sub-source” as being reliable and credible, and “Russia-based.”

Those were all outright, bald-faced lies.

The FBI also withheld the fact that Steele’s work was funded by the Pantsuit Princess campaign and the Democrat National Committee. The FISA judges never heard that from the FBI or the DOJ, and only learned about it through the efforts of good men like Congressman Devin Nunes, who risked their political careers and their lives to get that information out onto the public record.

Now to the sub-source:

Last week, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified documents that revealed the identity of Steele’s “sub-source,” i.e., the guy who basically fed all him all of the unsubstantiated rumors and fantasies that make up his Dossier.

That guy’s name is Igor Danchenko. Mr. Danchenko is a former Russian national, but has been a resident in the United States for many years. Thus, he is not at all “Russia-based.”

Oh.

But it gets better. It turns out that Danchenko worked for many years at the leftist Brookings Institution think tank, a favorite of Obama’s, one that provided “research” support for most of Obama’s god-awful policies.

Oh.

But it gets even better than that. It also turns out that Danchenko worked closely with a woman named Fiona Hill, a so-called “Russia expert,” and co-authored a paper with her when they were both working at Brookings during 2016.

You may remember Ms. Hill as an Obama-plant employee at the National Council who served as one of the key “witnesses” at last year’s impeachment farce hearings. Ms. Hill was hired into the NSC by the evil H.R. McMaster, who became President Trump’s National Security Advisor after the FBI successfully framed General Mike Flynn.

Oh.

But it gets even better than all of that, if you can believe it. Here’s an excerpt from a report by John Solomon at JustTheNews.com:

In addition, the president of the Brookings Institution — former Clinton administration figure Strobe Talbott — contacted Steele early in the Russia collusion probe and requested a copy of his dossier to share with Obama administration officials, according to Steele’s recent testimony in a British lawsuit.

“I remember taking a phone call from him, your Lordship, earlier in the summer, in which he said that he was aware that I had — he spoke in fairly cryptic terms, but he was aware that we had material of relevance to the U.S. election,” Steele testified in March in  the British lawsuit.

Steele claimed Talbott learned about his dossier work from either former National Security Adviser Susan Rice or former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland. Rice’s spokesman has denied having such contact about the dossier. Nuland acknowledged knowing about Steele’s dossier in July 2016 and claimed she directed her staff to send the former MI-6 agent to the FBI.

“Although he didn’t state it explicitly, one or either or both of them had briefed him on the work we had been doing,” Steele testified.

[End]

Oh.

But – and I’m not kidding here – it gets even better than that. More from the John Solomon report:

Talbott’s brother-in-law, Cody Shearer, distributed his own anti-Trump Russia dossier in September 2016, according to evidence released by Congress and the DOJ inspector general. It included some of the same allegations as those in Steele’s.

And then in early 2017 Talbott provided a copy of the Steele dossier to Hill after she started working inside the Trump National Security Council, according to Hill’s impeachment testimony. Hill admitted she met multiple times with Steele in 2016.

[Devin] Nunes told Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo that he is opening a “full-blown” probe into the role Brookings and its figures played with Steele and the entire Russia episode.

“People may remember the president of Brookings back in 2016, we know that he had given the dossier to a few people, we had that through testimony,” Nunes explained. “You also may remember that the State Department was involved and there were additional dossiers that weren’t the Steele dossiers, except that they mirrored the Steele dossiers.”

[End]

So, we now see this web of lies, deceit and outright treason now implicating a major leftist think tank and winding its way deep into the Trump National Security Council thanks to McMaster’s betrayal.

Unwinding all of this is a massive, Herculean task, and the man assigned with that task by William Barr is U.S. Attorney John Durham. So, if you’re wondering why it is taking awhile for Durham to get to the part of his work that involves perp-walks and indictments, well, it should be starting to become more clear to you now.

Barack Obama corrupted literally every institution of the federal government, and that corruption dominated the first two years of the Trump administration and lingers still, just 3 months before President Trump stands for re-election. That’s how deep and wide and completely ingrained it has become.

This is a cancer on our nation, and it is very important that Durham and Barr get all of it out. While it would certainly be gratifying for Durham to indict one of the big tumors – like, say Comey or John Brennan or even Strzok – if doing that imperils the goal of eradicating the metastasized cancer completely, then it wouldn’t be worth it.

We should give Durham and Barr the time to get it all out in one fell swoop. This cancer cannot be allowed to linger and grow again.

That is all.

Despite DC Circuit Order to Dismiss, Flynn’s Ordeal is not Over Yet

Everyone needs to cool their heels on this Flynn dismissal order for a bit. While we are all very happy that the three-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals ordered District Judge Emmet Sullivan to end his abusive treatment of General Flynn in its order Wednesday, it is a tad too soon to just assume Sullivan will simply accede to the order and dismiss the case. General Flynn himself is on with Rush Limbaugh confirming this is the case as I write this, in fact.

Sullivan is clearly a tool of the deep state, and we must remember why he has worked so hard to string this case out for years now when any righteous, ethical judge would have tossed it out of court in a summary judgment in 2018. Sullivan’s goal is the same as the deep state’s goal – to keep this case alive, and by extension keep Flynn from telling all he knows, until after November 3.

Because, remember: Flynn knows where all of the bodies are buried here. This case was never about “Russia Collusion”; it never had anything to do with any real concerns about Flynn’s calls during the transition with Russian Ambassador Kysliak; it never had anything to do with any of the abject nonsense fantasy narratives that the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies have been pushing on the public since 2017.

This case was about protecting the dirty secrets behind Obama’s despicable deal with Iran, which, if left in place would have ensured Iran became the preeminent power in the Middle East, one armed with nuclear weapons. Flynn was fired by Obama in 2014 from his position as Director of Defense Intelligence because he raised objections regarding the negotiations over that deal, and that is why Obama/Biden and other high Obama officials could not stomach the thought of Flynn serving as National Security Advisor.

That’s why Flynn became the target of what we know beyond any doubt now was a blatant effort to frame him by the FBI; it is why he was targeted by American Gestapo Chief Robert Mueller and his enabler, Rod Rosenstein to begin with; and it is why Judge Sullivan has spent the past three years passing on at least half a dozen previous opportunities to dismiss this case and tolerating an unending stream of prosecutorial malfeasance in his courtroom.

The bad news here is that Sullivan is either hopelessly corrupt or – more likely – hopelessly compromised, and that he is not yet out of bullets to fire, despite the ruling by he Appeals court today. The Judge could obviously string this thing out for at least another month or two simply by demanding an en banc hearing before the full membership of the DC Circuit. While the Circuit would not be obligated to grant such a motion by the Judge, fellow deep state skunks on that body would certainly be able to delay any final decision for weeks while the corrupt news media conducted a pressure campaign.

With Peter Strzok’s notes from a January 4, 2017 meeting at the White House out today and now directly implicating both Joe Biden and Barack Obama in the attempt to entrap and frame Flynn, the very last thing the coup plotters want to see now is an exonerated Mike Flynn out doing media interviews and finally, at long last, talking about everything he knows.

My most fervent wish here is that I may have completely misjudged Sullivan in this instance. Instead of being a compromised tool of the deep state coup cabal, maybe he is simply a power-mad lifetime Federal Judge who has simply lost his way and all sight of what real, actual justice looks like. If the latter is the case, then perhaps he will take today’s ruling as any rational person would do and cut his losses here.

But if I am right about him, and he really is compromised and/or hopelessly corrupt, then we should expect him to keep firing every shot he has until the day comes when he finally, at long last, runs out of bullets to fire.

That is all.

What the Corrupt News Media Won’t Tell You About Police Reform

During his speech announcing his executive order on policing reforms on Tuesday, President Donald Trump criticized the Obama/Biden administration for having done nothing about the issue during its 8 long years in office. That wasn’t exactly true: Obama/Biden did take a few actions, none of which did any good. Had President Trump said that they “did nothing effective,” he would have been 100% correct.

Trump’s comments resulted in a flurry of media reports aimed at propping up Obama’s reputation – because of course they did – with NBC, the New York Times and all the other Usual Media Suspects weighing in.

All of those stories are your classic, fake news types of reports carefully written and edited by corrupt fake journalists. They are deceptive no so much for what they do say, but for the truth they conveniently and studiously ignore.

Each and every one of the pieces focuses on the practice of the Obama-era Department of Justice to basically take over control of local police departments in high-crime cities by entering into “consent decrees” that created DOJ oversight that governs policy and police training and practices. Ultimately, the Obama DOJ entered into 12 such decrees with U.S. cities and 2 others with PDs in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, which are U.S. territories.

Being a Republican administration that favors local control, the Trump DOJ led by Jeff Sessions and William Barr has de-emphasized the seeking of additional such decrees, although it has entered into a few of them over the last three years.

So, in 8 long years – during 2 of which they had super-majorities in both houses of the U.S. congress – that is the one, lone Obama/Biden accomplishment that the corrupt news media can point to in the area that is supposedly such a crucial matter to the political left today. Factually, the reporting at NBC, the Times and other corrupt media outlets is correct, as far as it goes.

But here is what none of the reports – not a single one of them – do: Give the reader a full and complete listing of the local PDs that were the subject of those 14 Obama-era consent decrees. To obtain that, I had to do my own research at the DOJ website, where I finally found the report linked here.

Here are the 14 local PDs:

Baltimore

New Orleans

Chicago

Seattle

Newark

Cleveland

Ferguson

Albuquerque

East Haven, CT

Los Angeles County

Meridian, Mississippi

Maricopa County, AZ

Virgin Islands

Puerto Rico

Are you beginning to understand why not a single one of those corrupt media outlets wanted to provide the public with a listing of the cities, counties and territories involved? What do they all have in common with the lone exception of Marcicopa County, whose consent decree resulted from a bullying effort by the Obama DOJ to get rid of longtime Sheriff Joe Arpaio?

If you said they have all been run for decades by Democrat political machines, you win the prize.

You are looking at a list of some of the most high-crime areas in the country, with Baltimore and Chicago leading the list, especially where murder and other violent crimes are concerned. Did Obama’s consent decrees change any of that dynamic? Are the Blacks and other minorities who make up the majorities living in the most dangerous, high-crime neighborhoods in those cities and counties happier with the policing today than they were before the consent decrees went into place?

The scenes we have all witnessed taking place in those cities and counties over the last 3 weeks would indicate the answer is a resounding “no.”

So yes, Obama and Biden did make a token and utterly ineffective effort to address police reform during their 8 long years in office, but no one should believe that they made it any sort of real priority that might have distracted them from their real focus areas of nationalizing healthcare and using climate change theory as justification for regulating every aspect of our daily lives. By the same token, if the local leaders in those cities, counties and territories truly cared about reforming the police, they have had complete control of the ability to force such reforms for decades now.

Oh.

With a single swipe of his pen on Tuesday, Donald Trump achieved more in this area in a single day than Obama and Biden did in 8 long years in office for one simple reason: Because Trump gives a damn. He wants Blacks, Hispanics, other minorities and all other Americans to be safe and prosperous. The Democrat Party wants neither, because people who are safe and prosperous are much less likely to vote for Democrats.

That’s the truth that the corrupt news media will never tell you.

That is all.

The “Resistance” Movement’s History of Failure

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

The current and ongoing “resistance” movement was spawned when the Democrats didn’t get their “inevitable” candidate elected to continue Obama’s third term.

Many (ignorant of political and historical perspective) people who I know to this day still think Obama inherited a mess from Bush Jr. and did a “good” job getting us out of the terrible horrible Bush years. Most are securely employed government workers and were otherwise unaffected by Obama’s stagnant economy. For the most part, this pervasive mindset was driven by the MSM (D) where everything every Republican did was akin to Hitler and every Democrat was a saint who only wanted to do the best for everyone.

So the anti GOP mindset is firmly hardwired into the minds of 40 plus percent of the population. The 20 or so percent of the elected feckless RINOs contribute mightily to this mindset. Many of these RINOS know a Democrat can’t get elected to represent their district, city or state, so they became “Republican” to win their election; that is why they are called RINOs.

Bloomberg is a great example. A lifelong liberal Democrat, he became a “Republican” to avoid a crowded Democratic primary, and rode Giuliani’s coattails to win in NYC.

Thus the Grahams, Alexanders, Rubios and McLames of the world get elected running as “conservatives”. Once elected, they quickly establish political machines to wipe out any future primary contenders and essentially become senator etc. for life. I have no doubt many also receive money and other covert support from the big government employee unions. A little known secret is many big organizations including most if not all big businesses support BOTH parties’ candidate; therefore no matter who wins they get their place at the table. That is how the political ‘system’ gets so corrupted.

In reality, for years, most Republicans don’t win elections; they get elected when the Democrat is so bad that the people (voters) revolt and vote for the alternative Republican or whatever “Independent” is on the ballot. Examples of Democrats who were so bad they were beaten in their reelect bid: President Carter, NJ Governor Florio, NY Mayor Dinkins, B. J. Clinton losing both houses of congress together for the first time in forty years, and Al Gore and Hillary Clinton not winning on the coattails of “popular” Democratic Presidents.

Both Clinton and Obama should have been one term presidents like Carter was, but they (unlike Carter) were propped up by the leftist media and beat very mediocre challengers (Dole and Romney). Reagan was a great candidate compared to Dole and Romney and he won because you can’t beat someone with no one, and Biden is as close to being a ‘no one’ as any candidate for any office in history.

The dumbing down of America’s youth in the public school system, and then the indoctrination of the high school “graduates” in our institutions of ‘higher learning’ all but ensures a Democratic leaning electorate. B. J. Clinton’s snake oil campaign and Obama’s “Hope and Change” messaging carried the day against media demonized, and miserable opponents.

Many GOP nominees are also known as “Designated Losers”. Bush Sr. was seen as being so bad a president – a Republican Jimmy Carter – that a major Independent (Perot) was able to get nearly 20% of the popular vote in 1992. This was very similar to the 1912 election between Taft and Wilson where Teddy Roosevelt (the original progressive) ran as an anti-Taft third party candidate and split the conservative vote. America got our first ‘worst’ president.

This is why we need runoff elections. There is no reason a candidate (Clinton) should win the presidency with only 43% of the popular vote.

About this ongoing anti-Trump “resistance”, there is no doubt in my mind that a similar coup and subsequent “resistance” effort would have been mounted against a Cruz or a Kasich or a Bush III presidency – and it would have worked in getting a resignation like was force upon Nixon when he lost support of the feckless GOP senate in 1974.

Trump, with his message, was the only 2016 GOP candidate who could have won against the Clinton machine. I also believe Sanders and his “message” could have beaten Trump since he didn’t have the Clinton baggage and essentially was the left’s version of ‘outsider’ Trump. Many of his supporters were angered because he was shafted by Clinton and the DNC. When Clinton was anointed, many Sanders supporters just stayed home.

Biden’s apparent win against Sanders is just history repeating itself. The real problem for the DNC and the left is Biden is so much worse a candidate than Hillary.

“The Resistance” is a term carefully chosen by the anti-Trump leftist movement. In world War II, covert fifth column sabotage was called “The Resistance” in Nazi occupied Europe to cripple Hitler’s war effort – “set Europe Ablaze” was Churchill’s slogan; Antifa and other groups are engaged in doing the same today. It was also supported bigtime by outside forces – the Allies in WWII, Antifa is also highly supported and organized by the numerous anti-Trump forces.

These riots and the “resistance” movement were looking for a ‘triggering event’ to set America ablaze as the Covid-19 “plandemic” crisis was running out of steam and we were beginning to return to “normal”. It was and is all too organized, all too coherent to be an organic protest on a nationwide scale. Look for other false flags to be created in the remaining five months before the election as the left driven “resistance” is getting more and more desperate to beat the “Bad Orange Man”.

So far, they have failed miserably with the three phase coup attempt, Mueller, Ukraine Impeachment, Covid-19, and now the violence. My only fear is the cumulative effect of all this intense turmoil created by the Democrats and the crisis-centric media could create a certain amount of ‘Trump Fatigue’. The relative peace of Obama’s administration may seem attractive to some who want to get back to “normal”.

Saturday News Roundup: Trump Fires WHO, Russia Hoax Dead, Roberts Goes Rogue Again

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Trump to WHO: You’re Fired! – President Donald Trump, outraged at the role the WHO played in helping China’s communist government conceal the real nature of the Wuhan Virus for several months, took final action with that corrupt globalist organization on Friday, completely removing the United States from its membership:

“China has total control over the World Health Organization despite only paying $40 million per year compared to what the United States has been paying, which is approximately $450 million a year,” Trump said during a news conference in the White House Rose Garden.

“The world needs answers from China on the virus. We must have transparency. Why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China?” he added. “It didn’t go to Beijing, it went nowhere else, but they allowed them to freely travel throughout the world, including Europe and the United States.”

Naturally, RINO limp-wrists like Lamar Alexander were upset and disturbed by the move, because of course they were.

But then, WHO cares what they think? (See what I did there?)

The Russia Hoax breathes its last, dying gasp. – Thanks to the efforts of Ric Grenell and new Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, the Russia Hoax is now in hospice care, breathing its last, desperate breaths.

As promised, DNI Ratcliffe released the full transcripts and FBI summaries of the various calls General Mike Flynn conducted with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 transition period. His action came after Grenell had fully declassified the documents early this week. The calls show exactly what we should have expected: An incoming National Security Advisor holding calls with his Russian counterpart and having preliminary discussions on areas of mutual interest between our two countries.

The December 29, 2016 call that the Obama Coup Cabal and its corrupt media support group have claimed to be so concerning turns out to be a big nothing burger. During that call, when Kislyak raises the likelihood of Russia responding to Obama’s earlier expulsion of dozens of Russian “diplomats”, i.e., spies, Flynn advises him exactly as John F. Kennedy advised Nikita Kruschev during the Cuban Missile Crisis: to avoid ‘going nuclear’, and to respond in a “reciprocal” manner.

Naturally, the corrupt news media that has spent the last 4 solid years pushing the Russia hoax is today trying to convince you all that Flynn’s reply here is some sort of treasonous act. That is, of course, utterly absurd.

There is nothing wrong with that call, and we now know with 100% certainty that the Obama Administration – including Obama himself – went after Flynn for the simple fact that Flynn knows where all the bodies are buried with relation to Obama’s efforts to prop up Iran. Those corrupt bastards sold their souls and our national security to the Islamic state, and they could not countenance having Flynn as Trump’s National Security Advisor.

The most poignant part of reading the transcripts is that we see Flynn and Kislyak discussing the very real areas of mutual interest the U.S. and Russia had at the time related to destroying ISIS, stabilizing Syria and dealing with the Iranian threat. By mounting the Russia hoax, the Obama Coup Cabal and its media support team threw all of that potential good away, making it impossible for the Trump Administration to truly engage with Russia on those matters, and making our nation less secure in the name of protecting Obama, John Kerry and everyone else involved in the Iran deal.

This must not go unpunished. The Russia Hoax is dead, and it is now time for William Barr and John Durham to start extracting some justice.

Meet John Roberts, the new Anthony Kennedy. – Just when Americans all over the country are getting ready to go back to church, Chief Justice John Roberts decides to side with the communists.

In a 5-4 decision late Friday evening, Roberts sided with the four “liberal” – as the corrupt media likes to call them – justices in upholding the draconian, science-devoid restrictions on religious freedom being imposed by California Governor Gavin Newsom. Here’s the key passage from the decision:

Although California’s guidelines place restrictions on
places of worship, those restrictions appear consistent with
the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. Similar
or more severe restrictions apply to comparable secular
gatherings, including lectures, concerts, movie showings,
spectator sports, and theatrical performances, where large
groups of people gather in close proximity for extended periods of time. And the Order exempts or treats more leniently only dissimilar activities, such as operating grocery
stores, banks, and laundromats, in which people neither
congregate in large groups nor remain in close proximity for
extended periods.

[End]

Thus does the majority of the U.S. Supreme Court uphold dramatic restrictions on the absolute freedom of religion guaranteed in the First Amendment by equating your church, synagogue, temple or mosque to the local Kiwanis Club.

If you are not outraged by this, I really don’t know what to say to you.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Biden Blackmail, More Rice Lies, and Another Fake COVID Study

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

You have no right to be healthy, Citizen! – In New Jersey, Democrat thug Governor Phil Murphy is literally having people arrested for working out:

Meanwhile, in Michigan, Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer has done such a bang-up job abusing the fundamental rights of the people in her state that Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden is now vetting her to be his vice presidential running mate. Whitmer confirmed this incredible fact yesterday in an interview on the “Today” show:

“I’ve had a conversation with some folks,” Whitmer said in a Tuesday morning interview on the “Today” show. “It was just an opening conversation and it’s not something that I would call a professional formalized vetting,” she added.

News to Herr Gretchen: If you’ve had an “opening conversation” with the campaign, it means you are being vetted.

“Note to self: Barack was doin’ everything byyyyy the book. mmm, hmmmm, ‘by the book,’ that’s what Barack always told us. I’m just sayin’, that man did everything byyyyy the book.” – Ric Grenell declassifed the previously-withheld sections of the infamous “memo to self” that Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice wrote while President Trump was being sworn into office on January 20, 2017.

Why Is The Susan Rice Role In The Obama Spying Story A Big Deal ...

That memo was designed to provide a white-washed summary of the January 5 White House meeting during which Obama revealed he knew all the details of his administration’s spying operation on General Mike Flynn, a fact that stunned Deputy AG Sally Yates speechless. The declassified piece of the memo reveals that a) James Comey’s FBI had zero information of any wrongdoing by General Flynn, and b) that Obama and Comey nonetheless discussed withholding information regarding relations with Russia from national security briefings provided to the Trump transition team.

Despicable.

Big news story on the cable news channels this morning is that Pier 1 Imports is bankrupt and going out of business. Folks, Pier 1 Imports has been pretty consistently “going out of business” for about 20 years now. It is – or at least originally was – a sister company to Radio Shack under the Tandy Company umbrella. “Going out of business” has long been its core business model.

Here we go again.A new statistical modeling study released yesterday will give the fear porn mongers in the Democrat Party and the corrupt news media new ammo in their fight to keep the country shut down through election day:

A new study suggests the number of Americans who will die after contracting the novel coronavirus is likely to more than triple by the end of the year, even if current social distancing habits continue for months on end.

The study, conducted by the Comparative Health Outcomes, Policy and Economics Institute at the University of Washington’s School of Pharmacy, found that 1.3 percent of those who show symptoms of COVID-19 die, an infection fatality rate that is 13 times higher than a bad influenza season.

“COVID-19 infection is deadlier than flu — we can put that debate to rest,” said Anirban Basu, a health economist at the University of Washington who authored the study.

[End]

Among the study’s no-doubt many faulty assumptions is that it assumes no advances in treatment regimes for those infected as doctors and laboratories learn more and more about the Wuhan Virus. It also assumes rising outbreaks of the virus as states reopen their economies, thus ignoring the real-world experience in the states that are currently doing just that.

In other words, this “study” is just like a new Fox News poll: An exercise dedicated to creating a knowingly-false, outrageous result designed to create “news” stories for corrupt media outlets.

So tiresome.

Quid Pro Joe live and in action!Audio tapes were released on Tuesday of  several 2016 phone calls between Quid Pro Joe Biden and former Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko. The calls present clear proof that Biden – then serving as Obama’s point man on Ukraine policy – engaged in outright blackmailing of the Ukrainian President, withholding $1 billion in guaranteed U.S. loans from the Ukraine until Poroshenko had gotten rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was at the time investigating the Ukrainian gas company that had given Biden’s ne’er-do-well son Hunter a highly-lucrative board position.

This is, of course, exactly what Biden himself admitted to doing at a public event in a video released last fall. The audio tapes of the actual conversations simply confirm Biden’s bragging about the blackmail.

Remember, folks, this whole “quid pro quo” rubrick was the exact allegation the Democrats concocted last August as justification for mounting an impeachment hoax against President Donald Trump.

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

Bring in the clowns – there ought to be clowns. – The Dallas Count Commissioners Court has long been little more than a running clown show, led by long-time radical leftwing commissioner John Wiley Price.

On Tuesday, the commissioners  beclowned themselves yet again, as reported by The Blaze.:

The Dallas County Commissioners Court has accused Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) of exhibiting white supremacy after the Republicans condemned the actions of State District Judge Eric Moyé, who jailed salon owner Shelley Luther for reopening her business in defiance of the state’s lockdown order.

Moyé is black, and Abbott, Patrick, and Luther are all white.

What are the details?

On Tuesday, the commission passed a resolution declaring that “Dallas County residents suffer as the world gazes upon the travesty of justice caused when the Governor of the State of Texas and Dan Patrick, Lieutenant Governor (who appears to spend an excessive amount of time with his Conservative radio talk show) intervened in a ruling against a media-manufactured cause celebre, a lawbreaker and owner of Salon a la Mode.”

The document went on to say that the county “had its reputation questioned and ridiculed as this staged-circus, was reduced to issues of race and the superiority of Anglos over all other Americans, which was exhibited by the Governor and the Lt. Governor’s reintroduction of Dred Scott v. Sanford which briefed by any reasonable party reads; ‘a Black man (Moyé) has no rights that a White man (Trump, Abbott, Patrick) are bound to respect!”

[End]

Again, you could never make this stuff up. It is just too absurd for the human mind to ever conceive out of whole cloth.

That is all.

Ric Grenell Releases Obama Unmasker List – Joe Biden Included ***UPDATED***

UPDATE: Ok, let’s talk about why all of the stuff revealed by Catherine Herridge in the tweet copied below is important.

First, there is nothing illegal about the practice of “unmasking” in and of itself. It is standard procedure in Democrat and Republican administrations alike for officials to make these requests so that they can better understand briefings and other documents they are attempting to digest. So, it’s all probably legal, and every one of the 39 Obama officials named in today’s release had proper authorization to “unmask” General Flynn for these specific purposes and for their own use.

The scandal here is that many of the people on this list were engaging in unmasking not only General Flynn but a wide variety of U.S. citizens, not for their own internal, private use, but in order to be able to broadcast this information throughout the Obama Administration and cause it to be leaked, either by themselves or others, to willing accomplices within the corrupt news media.

Look at these documents copied below, and note the flurry of activity that took place on December 14 and 15. Fully 35 of the 39 Obama officials who appear on this list made an unmasking request on those dates. Why do you think that is the case?

Well, it’s most likely because that was right at the time when then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper issued an order that dramatically broadened the number of agencies and levels of employees with whom this information could be shared by the requesters.

Remember that? Prior to that order, government officials were very restricted in sharing this information with others in the government. Obviously, that restriction was there in order to protect the U.S. citizens who were the subjects of the unmasking efforts.

But Clapper – almost certainly acting on direct orders from Obama himself – took care of that, and as a result enabled the creation of a mountain of leaks that we saw during the Trump transition.

That’s the biggest part of this scandal.

But there’s more. For one thing, consider the fact that that flurry of activity on the 14th and 15th took place two full weeks before Flynn’s infamous phone call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on December 29. Remember: It is that call that Comey/McCabe/Strzok, et all at the FBI have always claimed as the event that triggered their suspicions about Gen. Flynn. This list proves that is all just another lie, and that the Obama coup cabal was targeting Flynn much earlier.

Also, think about the nature of the names you see on this list. The person with the most requests is Samantha Power, who was the Ambassador to the United Nations. What in the hell was the UN Ambassador doing making such numerous requests specific to General Flynn?

And what in the world was going on at the U.S. Treasury Department? You had no fewer than 6 Treasury officials feeling the need to unmask the designated incoming National Security Advisor. Why?

What do you think motivated the President’s own Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough, to make an unmasking request on January 5? Could have been because that was the exact day on which Obama held that meeting with his national security team, and then afterwards took James Comey and Sally Yates aside to specifically talk about the operation to entrap Flynn? Could be. Seems likely.

Finally, what possible legitimate reason would the outgoing Vice President of the United States have to unmask General Flynn on January 12, 2017, just 8 days before he was to leave office. At the very least, shouldn’t Mr. Biden be asked that question by every corrupt journalist who interviews him from now until November 3? If Biden were a Republican, we all know that would certainly happen.

So, the fallout from this specific release of documents is not going to be that anyone is going to jail for doing this. The fallout is that it demonstrates once again the organized effort at the highest levels of the Obama Administration to hamper the Trump transition team, an effort that continued after Trump had assumed office.

The impact to Biden is that it clearly shows once again that he was personally involved in these efforts. There is little question that this revelation will only serve to amplify efforts by many Democrats to prevent him from becoming the nominee. This man is already operating in an atmosphere in which a new poll out this week shows that 30% of Democrat voters still do not expect him to ultimately be nominated at the party’s convention. That percentage will grow because of today’s revelation, especially when you factor in the fact that just yesterday, Biden denied any knowledge about any of this on national television.

One reader asked earlier if this might trigger Bernie Sanders to reactivate his own campaign. That’s a good question, one that most likely hinges on whether Sanders has already been bought off to get out of the race like he was in 2016. If nothing else, his price might suddenly go up.

William Barr Tosses Out Some Real, Live Bombs in MSNBC Interview

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

Ok, if you’re still sitting around worrying that Attorney General William Barr has gone all wobbly – even after yesterday’s pointed statements by he and U.S. Attorney John Durham in response to the IG Report – then I think I may have found your cure. Earlier today, MSNBC aired an interview involving one of their hack reporters and Attorney General Barr, and boy, is it epic. Mr. Barr is making no bones about his continued consistent views on what he bluntly still refers to as the “spying” on the Trump Campaign by the Obama FBI, and is not backing off even a little bit from his assessment of the contents of the IG Report.

Below is a clip of the first 3:17 of the interview, followed by a transcript. Watch and/or read, and if you don’t feel better after doing that, then I’m afraid there is nothing more I can do to help you.

 

Now, the Transcript, lovingly and laboriously prepared by we here at the Campaign Update for our audience made up mostly of voracious readers:

MSNBC Hack: Why do you say the FBI opened the investigation on the Trump Campaign on the “thinnest of suspicions?”

Barr: Well, I’m glad to get into the issue of predication, but let me just start out by saying that I think you have to put this in context. I think the heart of the IG’s report really focused on how the investigation was conducted once it got going, and that is especially the very serious abuses of FISA that occurred, much of which has in my view not been accurately reported by the press over the last day.

But, in one area I do disagree with the IG, and that was whether there was sufficient predication to open a full-blown counterintelligence investigation, specifically using the techniques that they did to collect intelligence about the Trump Campaign.

MSNBC Hack: W, w, well as a policy matter, why not open an investigation on a thin pretext? [Seriously???] I guess on the one hand you could say that it’s a presidential campaign, it’s very sensitive, you need better evidence. On the other hand, you could say, it’s a presidential campaign, we have to be very careful, it’s a threat to our political process.

Barr: I think probably from a civil liberties standpoint [Which liberals USED to be concerned about – remember?] the greatest danger to our free system is that the incumbent government use the apparatus of the state – principally the law enforcement agencies and the intelligence agencies – both to spy [!] on political opponents, but also to use them in a way that could affect the outcome of the election.

As far as I’m aware, this is the first time in our history that this has been done to a presidential campaign. The use of these counterintelligence techniques against a presidential campaign. And we have to remember, in today’s world, presidential campaigns are frequently in contact with foreign persons, and indeed, in most campaigns there are signs of illegal foreign money coming in [!!!].

And we don’t automatically assume that the campaigns are nefarious and traitors and acting in league with foreign powers. There has to be some basis before we use these very potent powers in our core first amendment activity.  And here, I felt this was very flimsy.

Basically, I think the Department has a “rule of reason” which is, at the end of the day, what you’re relying on – sufficiently powerful to justify the techniques you’re using. And the question there is, how strong is the evidence? How sensitive is the activity you’re looking at? And what are the alternatives?

I think when you step back here and say, what was this all based on?, it’s not sufficient.

Remember, there was and never has been any evidence of “collusion.” And yet, this campaign, and the President’s Administration has been dominated by this investigation into what turns out to be completely baseless.

[End]

Things to note in this:

  • Barr’s intentional and pointed use of the word “spy” to describe what the Coup Cabal did to the Trump Campaign. He knows this will cause Democrats and the media to fry their own brains. Epic.
  • Barr’s unqualified statement that “there was and never has been ANY evidence of ‘collusion.'” That tells you that he – and presumably also Durham – simply do not accept that there was ANY premise at all for operation “Crossfire Hurricane” to begin in the first place, nor was there ANY reason for the appointment of a special counsel, much less a two-year-long investigation by Mueller. That is bad, bad news for not just Comey, Strzok, Page and McCabe, but also for Mueller and Rosenstein, who made the decision to appoint Mueller based on…nothing.
  • Also very interesting is this statement’s phrasing: “… the greatest danger to our free system is that the incumbent government use the apparatus of the state…”. The use of the words “incumbent government” rather than the more limited “Department of Justice,” or the even  more limited “FBI” is very, very interesting, and implies that Barr and Durham are not limiting their investigation to those outside of the Obama White House, but may well be looking inside it as well. Boom, if so.
  • Then there’s the seemingly gratuitous noting of the fact that “…in most campaigns there are signs of illegal foreign money coming in.” Think about that one: Which two recent campaigns have been most prominent in having allegations of benefiting from foreign money? If you said “the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton Campaigns,” you win the prize.

William Barr is a man with a well-earned history of choosing the words he uses carefully and with intent. He doesn’t just shoot his mouth off in public without giving a lot of forethought to exactly what the message is that he wants to convey.

There are a lot of very powerful messages directed at the bad actors from the Obama years in that short three-minute clip.

Those messages are also directed at those of you who still doubt Mr. Barr’s real intentions here. Are you listening?

Addendum: Here is another 57 seconds of that Barr interview and it is just as EPIC:

Transcript:

MSNBC Hack: So do you still stand by your statement that the Trump Campaign was spied upon?

Barr: [Incredulous that the question would even be asked.] Oh, it was CLEARLY spied upon. I mean, that’s what electronic surveillance is. I think wiring people up to go in and talk to people and make recordings of their conversations is spying. I think going through people’s emails, which they did as a result of the FISA warrant, they went through everything, you know, from Page’s life…

MSNBC Hack: Of course, he wasn’t in the campaign at the point where they got the surveillance…

Barr: [Even more incredulous at this raging hack.] No, but his emails go back. The main reason they were going for the FISA warrant initially was to go back historically and seize all his emails and texts and all that stuff from back – months and even years. So, they were covering the period when he was in the campaign and that’s exactly the reason they went for the FISA – to get that stuff.

[End]

Feeling better yet?

That is all.
