Tuesday News Roundup: Barr Allowed to ‘Resign’ But Biden Might Not Even Get The Chance

Better late than never. – William Barr was allowed to claim he “resigned” his post as one of the nation’s worst Attorneys General in its history, and will now move on to graze in other swampy pastures, effective December 23. Deputy AG Jeff Rosen will step in to serve as Acting Attorney General:

Here is Barr’s Letter of Resignation:

President Trump’s tweet announcing Barr’s ‘resignation’ came immediately after he, Barr and others had met at the White House to discuss the Department of Justice’s involvement – or maybe its non-involvement – in investigations related to all of the massive election fraud the Democrats perpetrated in the just-completed presidential race. That letter was obviously drafted by the White House Communications staff, and was no doubt waiting for Barr and his signature when he arrived at the White House for that meeting.

William Barr didn’t “resign” at all: He was obviously fired for his refusal to do his damn job. The nonsense about waiting until December 23 and spending more time with his family is the same nonsense language we see used when politicians beset by scandals or corporate executives facing business failure are fired but allowed to resign in order to save face.

Barr was fired because he has lied to the public for many months now about the activities and timetable of John Durham and his apparently fake investigation into Spygate. He was fired because he has known about the Hunter Biden investigation since the day he assumed the office – and likely even before – and has refused to make any effort to correct all of the massive false media reporting about that investigation and claims that it did not even exist. And he was fired because he and his FBI did nothing, not one damn thing, to intervene to stop the stealing of this presidential election before it took place, and has done nothing of substance since the election was held.

The only sad aspect of this episode is that the President didn’t fire Barr months ago and replace him with someone who was interested in actually doing his damn job.

Already setting up his reason for resignation? – China Joe Potato Head Biden read a speech from  a TelePrompter last night, and he did it with a massive, persistent gurgle in his throat. Watch:

Up until the past week or so, I have assumed that Biden’s elder-abusing handlers and the evil minions at the DNC and CIA would allow him to actually be sworn into the presidency and serve for at least a few weeks, perhaps months, before resigning for “medical reasons” and turning the office – and our nation’s future – over to the sock puppet the deep state really prefers, Kamala Harris. But with the sudden, very public revelations about the DOJ/FBI investigation into Hunter Biden and the Biden family’s influence peddling with China, Russia, the Ukraine and other countries, I’ve begun to wonder if they will really allow him to serve in the office for a single day before pulling the plug.

Last night’s persistently croaking bullfrog emitting from Joe Potato Head’s throat sure makes you wonder if they’ll actually allow him to serve a single day, just to make it look good. After all, if the American public is gullible enough to meekly accept the results of this obviously stolen election, why worry about appearances at all?

We don’t know all the implications of this yet, but it sure is interesting. – Software sold by computer software company SolarWinds was identified as a massive security threat this week by the Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency (CISA). After becoming aware of the threat, CISA issued an emergency directive under U.S. espionage laws for only the fifth time since CISA was created in 2015.

From that emergency directive:

This Emergency Directive calls on all federal civilian agencies to review their networks for indicators of compromise and disconnect or power down SolarWinds Orion products immediately.

“The compromise of SolarWinds’ Orion Network Management Products poses unacceptable risks to the security of federal networks,” said CISA Acting Director Brandon Wales. “Tonight’s directive is intended to mitigate potential compromises within federal civilian networks, and we urge all our partners—in the public and private sectors—to assess their exposure to this compromise and to secure their networks against any exploitation.”

[End]

SolarWinds headquarters in Austin, Texas were apparently raided by federal officials on Monday, and its executives questioned by authorities. Mainstream media reporting indicates the feds were mainly interested in sketchy stock trades those executive engaged in right before the CISA directive was issued, but it is far more likely they were mainly interested in the potential impacts the security breach could have on the federal agencies that also use the software:

The threat apparently came from the same cyberespionage campaign that has afflicted cybersecurity firm FireEye, foreign governments and major corporations, and the FBI was investigating.

The system is used by hundreds of thousands of organizations globally, including most Fortune 500 companies and multiple U.S. federal agencies, which will now be scrambling to patch up their networks.

The attackers planted malware in computer networks after using what FireEye CEO Kevin Mandia called “a novel combination of techniques not witnessed by us or our partners in the past.

[End]

And here’s the other thing: Dominion Systems uses SolarWind software. It says so right on the Dominion website.

Oh. Why do I think there is more – much more – to this story than we are currently being told? Stay tuned.

Say thank you to President Donald Trump on behalf of your 401(k). – Saw this story at CNBC this morning:

Vaccine rollout and economic recovery should push the S&P 500 to 4,300 next year, Oppenheimer says

An economic recovery next year will help fuel a nearly 18% rise in the stock market by the end of 2021, according to new projections from Oppenheimer Asset Management.

The investment firm and its chief investment strategist John Stoltzfus released their outlook for 2021 on Monday, setting a year-end target for the S&P 500 at 4,300.

[End]

Your corrupt, fake news media won’t tell you this, but if any human being other than Donald Trump had occupied the Oval Office when this pandemic hit our shores, you would not have been watching scenes of 18 wheelers carrying millions of doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine rolling out of a Michigan plant on Monday. Instead, you’d have been listening to stories about endless delays from the CDC and the FDA in getting the thing through their Byzantine approval process.

It is only thanks to the prescient actions by Donald J. Trump in issuing order after order to those federal bureaucratic monstrosities to speed things up that we have not one, but three different vaccines either already fully approved or about to be fully approved in a record time that no one believed would be possible just a few months ago.

So, if you want to thank someone in government for yesterday’s happy news, you can’t thank your governor, you can’t thank Anthony Fauci, who has fought the President every step of the way, and you damn sure cannot thank a single Democrat on the face of the earth.

Thank Donald Trump, because he’s the guy who made this all happen through the sheer force of his will.

BREAKING: Attorney General William Barr Has Resigned

Hot off the ol’ presses: William Barr has resigned his post as one of the nation’s worst Attorneys General in its history, and will now move on to graze in other swampy pastures, effective December 23. Deputy AG Jeff Rosen will step in to serve as Acting Attorney General:

Here is Barr’s Letter of Resignation:

Barr is a sad story of failure for this administration and for this country. Had he been willing to really go after the Deep State seditionists who executed a four-year-long coup d’etat throughout President Trump’s first term in office, he could have gone down as a real American hero. As it is, he will be remembered as just another Deep State functionary.

It should be assumed that, despite the amicable letter of resignation and the President’s flowery-worded tweets, Barr was actually fired today.

Good riddance.

Friday News Roundup: Cotton Demands Special Counsel and China Apparently Owns MIT

Senator Cotton makes a really strong point. – Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to handle the investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes, money laundering and other influence peddling activities around the world. Cotton notes that the circumstances create a clear and blatant conflict of interest where the Big Guy, China Joe Potato Head Biden is concerned, and that conflict of interest cries out for the appointment of a special counsel related to the case.

From a piece at JustTheNews:

“I know the Biden campaign released details of a tax fraud investigation in Wilmington,” said Cotton during the Fox News interview. “I think that was just to show maybe the least damaging part of the investigation.”

“There’s allegations of securities fraud and money laundering related to Hunter Biden’s Chinese businesses, a crooked hospital deal with Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, out in western Pennsylvania. These investigations span multiple jurisdictions,” Cotton said, remarking that in the event that Joe Biden becomes the nation’s next president, “those prosecutors are in line to be fired next month. If there were ever circumstances that create a conflict of interest and called for a special counsel, I think those circumstances are present here.”

The Arkansas Republican said that the Biden family has leveraged Joe Biden’s government posts for their benefit in the past and would continue to do so if Biden serves as president.

“Look, the Biden family has been trading on Joe Biden’s public office for 50 years. Valerie Biden Owens, his sister, and Jim Biden, his brother, and Hunter Biden his son,” he said. “Do we really think that that will change if Joe Biden becomes president, the highest office in the land?”

[End]

Right now, the investigation is being handled out of the U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware. Joe Potato Head Biden will no doubt follow the example of Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self and immediately fire all U.S. attorneys and replace them with leftist cronies whose first task will be to halt any potentially damaging investigations and cover them all up. The creation of a special counsel’s office would make it much more difficult, both politically and procedurally, for a Biden-appointed attorney general to come into office and sweep it all under the rug.

Sen. Cotton is absolutely correct in this instance, as he generally tends to be. But will Barr do the right thing related to this clear case of the Biden family peddling its influence around the world? His record thus far is certainly not encouraging.

After all, Byron York revealed yesterday that this investigation began way back in 2018, and was already ongoing when Barr took office. He has been fully aware of it since his first day on the job and chose to keep it all quiet for the last 21 months despite his knowledge that its existence was something American voters should know about given that Biden was the Democrat Party nominee for president.

I’m not advocating that Barr should have revealed the investigation as an October surprise. But Barr should have made the investigation public during the Democrat nominating process so that Democrat primary voters would be aware of the enormous ethical problem China Joe would create for their party. By withholding its existence and the strong evidence against not just Hunter but the entire Biden family, Barr heinously influenced the outcome of the general election.

Why, it’s almost as if Barr wanted Joe Potato Head to win. Go figure.

Meanwhile, on the election challenge front… – On Thursday 106 GOP members of the U.S. House of Representaives filed an Amicus brief of their own in support of the Texas lawsuit that challenges the clear constitutional violations that took place prior to the election in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia:

24 members of the Pennsylvania Senate and 68 members of the PA House did the same thing:

The Justice Foundation and the Amistad Project joined in the fun:

The suit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton certainly has a great deal of support.

But of course, not everyone is on board, including not a single Democrat or a single individual in the nation’s corrupt news media. Then there is RINO Nebraska Senator Ben Sassy Sasse, who yesterday snidely remarked (because everything he says is a snide remark) that Paxton’s lawsuit has other motivations.

From a story at Newsweek:

Senator Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, suggested on Thursday that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, filed a Supreme Court lawsuit attempting to overturn the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in an effort to get a pardon from President Donald Trump.

Sasse suggested on Thursday that a lawsuit filed with the Supreme Court by Texas’ Attorney General Ken Paxton in a bid to overturn election results in four battleground states is an attempt to garner a pardon from President Donald Trump.

The Associated Press reported in November that Paxton is under investigation by the FBI over allegations that he abused his office in an effort to benefit a wealthy donor. That investigation came after seven senior staff members under the attorney general urged federal law enforcement in an open letter in early October to “investigate allegations [against Paxton] of improper influence, abuse of office, bribery and other potential crimes.”

“I’m no lawyer, but I suspect the Supreme Court swats this away. From the brief, it looks like a fella begging for a pardon filed a PR stunt rather than a lawsuit—as all of the assertions have already been rejected by federal courts and Texas’ own solicitor general isn’t signing on,” Sasse told The Washington Examiner on Thursday, commenting on the long-shot effort to overturn the election results in the four battleground states to benefit Trump.

[End]

And who knows? Sassy Sasse may be right – the lawsuit could be destined to fail. But are the 17 other state attorneys general supporting the lawsuit also looking for pardons? Are Sasse’s 106 fellow Republicans in the House all looking for pardons? What about the 92 Pennsylvania Republicans – are they looking for pardons? Do all of those Republicans and the myriad lawyers and witnesses who are fighting the good fight in all of these states where massive election fraud did take place have bad motives in Sassy’s eyes?

What a ridiculous thing to say. But hey, it’s Ben Sassy Sasse – ridiculous is his other middle name.

And on the China influence front… – No, this is not about Hunter Biden or Eric Swalwell and his honeypot, although it certainly could be.

No, this is about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and MIT, which refused to allow Sec. Pompeo to speak on its campus out of fear of offending the formerly respected school’s Chinese benefactors. I swear I do not make this stuff up.

From a story at the New York Post:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo unloaded on officials at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Wednesday, accusing them of refusing to host him because they didn’t want to upset their Chinese interests.

Speaking at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Pompeo accused the Chinese Communist Party of “poisoning” the nation’s higher education system and said American schools were censoring anti-Beijing dissent because they were “hooked on Chinese Communist Party cash.”

“MIT wasn’t interested in having me to their campus to give this exact set of remarks. President Raphael Reif implied that my arguments might insult their ethnic Chinese students and professors,” Pompeo told the crowd in the Peach State.

“But of course nothing could further from the truth. These are the very people that this set of remarks is intended to protect, to protect their freedoms,” he said.

MIT is currently under investigation by the Department of Education for failing to fully declare foreign donations from the People’s Republic of China.

[End]

Oh.

This situation is already intolerable, and we’re about to have a pure China puppet in the presidency.

Pray for our country.

DOJ Supposedly “Investigating” Hunter Biden’s Taxes. Yeah, Sure It Is.

It turns out that when you rake in millions from the ChiComs and crooked Ukrainian gas companies and don’t properly report it to the IRS, it actually raises some eyebrows. – Who could have known that? Certainly not Hunter Biden, who no doubt has just assumed that the fact that his Pop (you know, The Big Guy) is a card-carrying member of the DC Swamp, he’s grandfathered in under that same umbrella and thus immune to any action being taken against him by our fat, lazy Attorney General, William Barr and his do-nothing Department of Justice.

And hey, no one should get too excited about it, because it’s probably all just for show, but ne’er-do-well Hunter tweeted out a statement today announcing that he has been formally notified that he is under investigation by the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s office over his tax affairs:

How about that? Naturally, the DOJ’s slow-footed action here comes far too late to save the nation from a four-year term in the Oval Office by Hunter’s ChiCom sellout, mentally addled old geezer Pop (aka, The Big Guy), because that’s just how things happen in the DC Swamp.

From a story at USA Today:

President-elect Joe Biden’s transition announced Wednesday that his son, Hunter, is being investigated for his taxes by the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware.

Hunter Biden was the focus of Republican complaints during the campaign for business dealings with Ukraine and China. But Hunter Biden hasn’t been charged and two Republican-led congressional committees in September found no wrongdoing by Joe Biden.

Political adversaries including President Donald Trump accused the former vice president of benefitting from his son’s business. But Joe Biden denied any illegal or unethical dealings with his son.

Hunter Biden said Wednesday that he learned Tuesday that federal prosecutors are investigating his tax affairs.

Hunter Biden waits for the start of his father's debate in October 2011 at Centre College in Danville, Ky.

“I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors,” Hunter Biden said in a statement.

Biden’s transition office said in a statement that the president-elect “is deeply proud of my son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.”

[End]

Hooboy. What a load of rank, smelly, fresh horse manure that last statement is. But hey, it was written by a team of Democrat message monkeys, so what else would we expect?

Sunday News Roundup: Barr, Sessions Hires Are Trump’s Worst Failures

Let’s just start with this meme found on Twitter this morning:

Image

Yes, imagine that.

Then there’s this:

Image

Will this be a case of the underling questioning the boss? We know the CIA has plants throughout the mainstream news media, a practice in which it has engaged since its creation shortly after World War II. Anyone who thinks Fox News is free from such skullduggery hasn’t been paying much attention to the content on Fox News lately. Not that anyone can blame you for that, of course.

But here’s the thing: In a just and free society in which laws mattered, John Brennan would be in federal prison, not making Sunday morning appearances on Fox News or raking in millions from his contributor deal with MSNBC. But that’s all been lost in America over the past 25 years, aided and abetted during the Trump Administration by worthless Attorneys General Jeff Sessions and William Barr.

To exemplify just how abjectly worthless Barr and his “Special Counsel” John Durham have been, late last week Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told an interviewer that he and his staff have provided “thousands” of classified Intelligence Community documents to Durham over the past several months.

From a story at BizPac Review:

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says he’s turned over “thousands of documents” to U.S. Attorney John Durham during his investigation into the origins of the so-called “Russian collusion” probe of the 2016 Trump campaign.

In an interview with the Washington Examiner published Thursday, Ratcliffe said he’s counting on Durham to uncover the truth about what the DNI believes is monumental corruption and wrongdoing by officials tied to the Russia investigation.

However, he added, that doesn’t mean all of what he’s passed along to Ratcliffe should be declassified and revealed due to the sensitivity of sources.

“Between my predecessor Richard Grenell in an acting capacity and myself, we have declassified most of the intelligence community documents that would be suitable for the public to see, that wouldn’t jeopardize sources and methods,” he told the outlet.

“There are others, many many documents — I think it’s been out there that I’ve provided literally thousands of documents to John Durham, but many of those do contain sources and methods that we can’t make public for a number of reasons, including to jeopardize any investigation that’s going there,” Ratcliffe continued.

“So I think the level of cooperation — I’ve given them everything that they’ve asked for,” he added.

[End]

Ratcliffe has indeed given Durham and Barr what they’ve asked for. No one should have expected this public servant to do anything less.

But what has been the result? What has the American public gained from Ratcliffe’s and Grenell’s stalwart efforts to end the information roadblock at the DNI’s office? Bupkis. No action from Durham whatsoever. No indictments, no wee hours of the morning arrests, no perp walks, none of the criminals who staged a long, slow-motion coup d’etat from 2017 through 2019 in any real jeopardy of ever being held accountable for their crimes against this nation.

The DOJ is an absolute travesty of injustice, and the failure to identify and hire a patriot to serve as AG will be remembered as Donald Trump’s single most damaging failure during his first term in office.

News you will not see reported on any national corrupt news outlet:

Think about that for a second: Why does the national news media refuse to report on the thousands of human trafficking arrests made over the past four years by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies? Is it just because it makes the Obama Administration, which showed no interest in doing anything effective to bust rings like this, look bad? Or is there something more sinister at play here?

It’s a good and valid question, and someone should be forced to answer it at some point.

Oh, well, color me shocked. Not. – It’s always about the money on the radical left, folks, and the Black Lives Matter communists are no exception. The Washington Times reports that some regional BLM chapters are up in arms about the fact that their national leadership appears to have made millions of dollars intended to fund the looting and burning of Democrat-run cities just disappear into the ether.

From that story at the Washington Times:

Black Lives Matter is facing a rebellion within its own ranks as regional affiliates seek greater control over the movement and demand answers about where millions of dollars in donations have gone.

After years of tensions between the national organization and local outlets, the rift went public this week with the release of a statement by 10 BLM chapters accusing the top brass at the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation of failing to open their books or share the wealth with the rank and file.

“For years, there has been inquiry regarding the financial operations of BLMGN and no acceptable process of either public or internal transparency about the unknown millions of dollars donated to BLMGN, which has certainly increased during this time of pandemic and rebellion,” reads the “Statement from the Frontlines of BLM” posted Monday.

“To the best of our knowledge, most chapters have received little to no financial support from BLMGN since the launch in 2013,” the statement reads.

In addition to the D.C. chapter, the missive was signed by affiliates in Chicago, Denver, Indianapolis, New Jersey, New York’s Hudson Valley, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, San Diego, and Vancouver, Washington. The chapter in Louisville, Kentucky, said it supported the chapters.

Wednesday News Roundup: We Now Know What William Barr Has and Has Not Been Doing

William Barr has been found and we now know what he has and hasn’t been doing. – What he has been doing is secretly appointing John Durham as a special counsel way back on October 19 and not telling anybody about it. His excuse for the secrecy was that it was just too darn close to Election Day and he didn’t want to influence the election, a consideration no Democrat would ever even entertain.

Thus, once again we see an establishment Republican demonstrate exactly why establishment Republicans are, as a class, a pack of surrender monkey losers.

The other little – or possibly big – problem with Barr’s skullduggery is that the special counsel statute clearly requires that special counsels must be chosen from among lawyers who are currently out of government. So, did Durham secretly resign before he was secretly appointed to be a special counsel? We don’t know because it’s a big secret.

Barr’s supposed reason for making this move was to make it much more difficult for Joe Biden – a person of interest in the investigation – to get rid of Durham and make all of his accumulated evidence go away. But if Durham did not resign his old office prior to being appointed, then an incoming Biden administration can simply dissolve his new office as being illegitimate under the law.

So all of this may amount to just one more William Barr head fake, another effort to placate Trump supporters by appearing to do something while in fact doing nothing.

Earlier in the day, we found out what Barr has been doing, which is apparently a big bag of nothing, at least as it relates to the massive voter fraud that undeniably took place during the 2020 elections. The Associated Press released an interview with Barr (why is Barr giving interviews to the AP at this moment in time?) in which the AG says he has seen no evidence of widespread voter fraud that would affect the outcome of the election.

He went on to say that “There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results. And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that.”

Actually, there have been dozens of assertions to that effect submitted in sworn affidavits, but who’s counting, right?

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani lashed out at Barr in a statement:

In the campaign statement, Giuliani claimed there was “ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they have not examined.”

“We have many witnesses swearing under oath they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud. As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ. The Justice Department also hasn’t audited any voting machines or used their subpoena powers to determine the truth,” he said.

And there you have the real truth of this matter: Barr hasn’t seen anything because he hasn’t been looking in any real way. Barr also attempted to wave off responsibility by using the old “wrong venue” claim that lawyers like to use, telling the AP that:

“There’s a growing tendency to use the criminal justice system as sort of a default fix-all,” he said, but first there must be a basis to believe there is a crime to investigate.

“Most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct. … And those have been run down; they are being run down,” Barr said. “Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes. They have been followed up on.”

This is all a load of horse manure. The FBI and DOJ have absolute authority to fully investigate any allegations of voter fraud taking place in a federal election and to pursue criminal charges against anyone guilty of what is a FEDERAL FELONY.

Let me tell you a little story about Box 13 and the infamous 1948 Texas U.S. senate election that Lyndon Johnson stole from Coke Stevenson via rampant voter fraud. It was the election that vaulted LBJ to national prominence and led directly to him ultimately becoming President 15 years later.

That election was a Democrat primary race – which at the time a was a de facto general election in Texas given the weakness then of the state’s GOP – and had been held on a Saturday. The initial results were so close that a recount was immediately ordered by the Texas secretary of state. By the following Friday, it became apparent to Johnson that he had to somehow find about 150 more votes in his name or he would be the loser and his political career essentially over.

So he called his good friend George Parr, the county judge of little Duval County in South Texas, to see if he could “find” another 150 or so ballots for him. Parr’s response to LBJ went something like this: “Lyndon, I’d love to do it for you, but you’ve asked so many times now that we have already reported more votes in Duval County than the number of people who actually live here, and we got FBI agents swarming all over us.”

Indeed, contemporaneous accounts of that stolen election invariably discuss the fact that the FBI was not only swarming Duval County but scouring the entire state, trying its best to root out voter fraud in real time. Why? Because it was a federal election, and LBJ and his cronies were committing federal felonies.

When LBJ wouldn’t take no for an answer, Parr said that maybe he could “find” the needed number of ballots over in Alice, the county seat of neighboring Jim Wells County, since the County Judge there was also a reliable crony. Lo and behold, on that Friday night, the Jim Wells County clerk “found” Box 13, a box allegedly containing more than 200 absentee ballots from that county’s 13th voting precinct, all of which had been miraculously cast for LBJ in a race that was dead even statewide.

Rumor has it that all 200+ of the ballots were written in the same handwriting and had been miraculously inserted into the box in perfect alphabetical order, but when FBI agents showed up at the Jim Wells County courthouse the following day to investigate, the clerk informed them that all of the county’s absentee ballots had been incinerated once they had been counted.

The point here is not that a Democrat stole that election – Democrats have been stealing elections in South Texas since time immemorial. It’s just part of the culture there. The point is that the FBI had deployed teams of agents working overtime to police a federal election in real time.

Today’s FBI has 1,000 times the resources that the agency possessed in 1948, yet it could not be bothered to lift a finger to work proactively to try to prevent any of the massive fraud we have all known was coming as a part of this election for eight long months. That sad reality can only be because the senior leadership at the FBI and the DOJ were just fine with this election being stolen by the Democrats.

Barr brags to the AP that his department continues to investigate valid claims of fraud in this election, but no one in the media is curious enough to ask him why he did nothing to prevent any of it from taking place. Perhaps that’s because they all know Barr has no good answer for that one, and they’re all fine with it, too.

That is all.

Boom: Barr Converts Durham to Special Counsel in Russia Probe

Well, this is something. Minutes after disappointing Trump supporters – and no doubt President Trump himself – by saying that his do-nothing FBI/DOJ has found no evidence of fraud that would be pervasive enough to tilt the outcome of the presidential election, William Barr announced that he has formally converted U.S. Attorney John Durham to a Special Counsel in his investigation of the origins of Spygate and Obamagate.

This conversion will help to ensure that Durham will be able to continue his work in a new Biden/Harris administration, complicating the hell out of China Joe Potato Head Biden since he is without doubt a key person of interest in Durham’s probe. It will also give Durham access to all the budget, staffing and resource privileges that come along with the Special Counsel designation.

From a report at Fox News:

Attorney General Bill Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham as special counsel to continue investigating the origins of the Russia probe in the next administration, Fox News has confirmed.

Barr appointed Durham as special counsel on Oct. 19—two weeks prior to Election Day.

Barr notified the Senate and House Judiciary Committees, in a letter dated Dec. 1 obtained by Fox News, that Durham would be special counsel.

“On May 13, 2019, I directed John Durham, U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, to investigate certain intelligence and law-enforcement activities surrounding the 2016 presidential election,” Barr wrote. “Although I had expected Mr. Durham to complete his work by the summer of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as additional information he uncovered, prevented him from doing so.”

“In advance of the presidential election, I decided to appoint Mr. Durham as a Special Counsel to provide him and his team with the assurance that they could complete their work, without regard to the outcome of the election,” Barr wrote, adding that he appointed Durham with “the powers and authority of a Special Counsel” on Oct. 19.

[End]

Law Professor Jonathan Turley had this to say about Barr’s action on Twitter this afternoon:

Thus, as has been the case throughout his term as Attorney General, Barr presents those who support President Trump today with a mixed bag of disappointment about his department’s failure to act on major scandals in real time and hope that the future could still produce some satisfactory results on another front.

The refusal of Barr’s DOJ and the FBI to really get involved in the single largest election fraud in American history will be a stain on Barr’s and Christopher Wray’s reputations for the rest of their days on earth. But his move with Durham today could, if Durham does ultimately produce real prosecutions of the criminals who tried to fix the 2016 elections and execute a coup d’etat on American soil, help to redeem Barr to a large extent.

Friday News Roundup: America is a True Banana Republic

Divided government is good for the stock market. – That is the signal the markets have been sending all week, as they have rocketed up mainly on the assumption that the GOP had retained a significant, 53-seat majority in the U.S. Senate. The Dow Jones has gained almost 1500 points this week, and happy days were here again.

But this morning, some new reality is setting in, and the markets are responding to it. Michigan Republican John James saw his clear legitimate victory overturned by the Democrats’ Detroit voter fraud machine on Wednesday, and suddenly that GOP majority was looking more precarious at just 52 seats. Then, Georgia’s David Perdue saw his clear win there turned into a runoff opportunity by the Democrats’ Atlanta voter fraud machine, and suddenly that GOP majority had become potentially no majority at all, given that Kelly Loeffler also faces a runoff election in Georgia.

It is no wonder, then, that the Dow this morning is stumbling, with futures showing a down opening of over 200 points.

The stock market loves a divided federal balance of power, because that mitigates against the kind of radical change the Democrats wish to enact. Now that that division stands in serious jeopardy, we can expect the markets to founder.

Just a reminder… – But hey, it’s not as if Joe Biden didn’t tell us outright what was going to happen:

“We have put together the most extensive and inclusive VOTER FRAUD organization in the history of American politics.”

To use Biden’s own language: Well, son of a bitch, he sure did.

America is officially a banana republic. – I joked about this a lot during the Obama years, given Obama’s very real fealty to and similarity with Central/South American socialist thugs like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.

We need to all understand that what is happening in Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Atlanta and Detroit, with Democrat officials refusing to allow GOP election observers access to the vote-counting process really, truly does take our country into true third-world banana republic status. America sends election observers into third-world countries all the time to help try to ensure a true democratic process takes place, and anywhere their access is denied, that country’s government becomes subject to U.S. sanctions and condemnation in world forums like the United Nations.

But here we are in by-God America, dealing with multiple situations in which Democrat thugs refuse to allow bipartisan election observers. That is tragically un-American, a despicable ant-democratic act that demands intervention from the federal Department of Justice and state law enforcement.

And yet, no one at either level of law enforcement lifts a finger to enforce and defend the most fundamental foundational building block of the American Republic. This is the kind of stuff that has turned Venezuela into a literal hell on earth, the kind of brutishness that rendered Cuba a prison state for the last 60 years, the kind of lawlessness that makes traveling into the once-beautiful country of Mexico a life-risking endeavor now.

If this outright theft of the U.S. presidency is allowed to stand without the DOJ or anyone else in law enforcement lifting a finger to do their jobs, then America will have no legitimate argument against the claim that it is now officially just another banana republic. That is a tragedy that is in fact bipartisan in its cause and nature.

Still don’t believe the fraud is real? – Here you go:

How about this:

Or this:

Do you understand the reason why these vote “counting” efforts in these Democrat voter fraud cities like Atlanta, Philly, Milwaukee, Detroit, Las Vegas and Phoenix had to be extended for days? The reason is simple: It takes a lot of time to fill out these ballots and then process them, and the “counters” had to first know how many fraudulent ballots they needed to create before starting the ballot-creating process. That is why we witnessed the two-hour pause in counting across PA, MI, and WI at about 2:00 a.m. Wednesday morning – they were jointly assessing the number of manufactured ballots they would need to steal the election.

Think about it: Florida managed to count more than 12 million ballots overnight Tuesday and report final results. Texas managed to do the same with even more ballots than that. Most other states – run by Republicans and Democrats alike – managed to do the same.

The one and only reason why these fraud states/cities are different is the massive fraud operation itself. If Illinois had been remotely close, we would have seen the same pause taking place there. Even though everyone knows at this point that there is nothing legitimate about what they are doing, they still must create the paper trail to prop up the pretense of legitimacy, and that takes a lot of time. And the one and only hope for reversing this massive fraud is for the courts to order a full forensic examination of each and every ballot, including the matching of signatures to voter registration documents and ensuring the alleged voter was in fact among the living when his or her “vote” was cast.

Getting that done is going to require William Barr and the DOJ to aggressively intervene in the process in order to create the body of evidence necessary to convince the courts. Thus far, Barr has been utterly and completely worthless, at least publicly. We can hope that he may be making preparations behind the scenes, but his record is not encouraging in that regard.

America is a true banana republic, and much of the blame for that must fall at Barr’s feet. But at the end of the day, it’s really the result of the national Democrat Party achieving its main goal of the last half-century.

That is all.

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.

The Monday News Roundup: Biden, Harris Lose Control of the Court Packing Narrative

When you’ve lost Jake Tapper, you’ve lost control of the narrative. – The Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign lost control of the narrative over packing the Supreme Court over the weekend. It obviously won’t last long, because their pals in the news media won’t allow it to do so, but Sunday was fun nonetheless.

Here is Mr. Tapper, actually having a moment of journalistic integrity with the Deputy Campaign Manager for the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden disinformation campaign, Kate Bedingfield:

Tapper began by pointing out that Biden, who had previously said that adding justices to the Supreme Court was “a bonehead idea,” was suddenly unwilling to answer the question.

“Biden opposes adding more justices to the Supreme Court, he has for decades, so why he is refusing to weigh in on it now?” Tapper asked.

“Because Donald Trump and the Republicans don’t get to set the terms of this debate,” Bedingfield replied, arguing that the question was a play to distract voters while they rushed the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

“It’s not the Trump people who invented this question, right?” Tapper asked. “The idea of adding justices to the Supreme Court came from the progressive side of the Democratic Party. It’s a simple question. He has long been against adding justices to the the court. Has he changed his mind or does he have the same position he’s had since 1983?”

Bedingfield pivoted again, saying again that it was an attempt by Republicans to distract from a nominee who would likely change the balance of the court. That Vice President Mike Pence had pushed the issue of court packing at last week’s debate was further proof of that, she concluded.

“This is a simple — it’s a simple question and it’s one frankly that Trump did not invent,” Tapper pushed back, saying again that the notion of court packing had originally come from progressives in the Democratic Party. “I thought odd when Vice President Biden said the other day in response to a reporter’s question that voters do not deserve an answer on this. Of course, voters deserve an answer on his position — on every issue.”

“But we are not going to play their game,” Bedingfield insisted. “He has given an answer. He has answered the question. He has probably answered this question 15 times over the course of the last week. The answer is I am not going to play Donald Trump’s game. I am not going to allow the terms of this debate to shift to a hypothetical that assumes, by the way, that we, the Democrats, are going to lose here. That is really — that is what at the core of this argument they are making. It assumes we are going to lose. Vice President Biden does not accept that. He does not accept that.”

“I think a serious policy question is not a game and I don’t think it’s Trump’s game, but Kate Bedingfield, we always appreciate you coming on the show and answering the questions or deftly side-stepping them,” Tapper gave up, ending the segment. “Thank you. Appreciate it.”

[End]

If you’re expecting Tapper to now bulldog this issue like he would if he was chasing a Republican, you should probably think again. Tapper has now done his pretend journalist-y thing, and will move immediately on to some other topic that is more favorable to Biden. That will allow Tapper to continue getting invited to all the nice cocktail parties in the DC Swamp. Because that’s how all of this works.

As I pointed out yesterday, Biden/Harris Harris/Biden obviously do plan to pack the court if they are elected. If they had no such plan, they would say so. Both of these people were selected by the Democrat power brokers for their willingness to do or say anything the radical left tells them to do and say. The radical left demands the court be packed, because that is the only way its plan to create a communist utopia in America can succeed.

Thus, Biden/Harris Harris/Biden will pack the court.

The only way to avoid that outcome is to re-elect Donald J. Trump. Simple.

Think this isn’t an important election? Think again. – Check out the names on Joe Biden’s short list for Attorney General:

The mass-killer of senior citizens Governor of New York; a former acting AG who was a participant in a coup d’etat on American soil; and a pathetic loser who has no real legal gravitas at all. That’s the list for AG. It’s almost enough to make you long for the days of Janet Reno.

Holy crap.

Pandemic? What pandemic? – I guess the Los Angeles Lakers must have closed out the low-rated NBA finals last night. So, how did the team’s fans celebrate? Why, by staging a mass gathering at the Staples Center and tossing rocks and bottles at police officers:

Love how the corrupt reporter describes the scene as “mostly peaceful.” Orwellian.

There is only one real question about the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation. – She’s been confirmed by the senate before, just 3 years ago. She is extremely well-qualified for the job, and everyone knows it. Absent some major scandal, her ultimate confirmation along the schedule Lindsey Graham has laid out is a fait accompli.

The only real question related to the hearings that begin today is, what fake scandal will the Democrats and their hand-maidens in the media concoct in an effort to try to derail Judge Barrett? Until we know that, the hearings themselves will be just a posturing, demagoguery opportunity for the Democrat members of the Judiciary Committee, including Kamala Harris, who began her disgusting posturing over the weekend by notifying Graham that she will participate remotely because it’s just too darn dangerous for her to show up in person.

What will that fake scandal be? Who knows? But you know something is in the works, and, with the committee’s process scheduled to end on Thursday, it will most likely break over next weekend in an effort to extend the committee process and thus delay the full senate vote.

So the timing is predictable. As for the nature of the inevitable smear, we will just have to wait and see what these evil people make up.

Stay tuned.

Tuesday News Roundup: Don’t Expect Anything Real From Barr and Durham

Just another signal that nothing real is going on. – Normally the resignation of a single U.S. Attorney is no cause for concern or even much notice. But this one is different.

On Monday, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas John Bash announced his sudden resignation, effective this Friday. Bash, if you remember, is one of at least 5 U.S. Attorneys around the country who has been assigned by Attorney General William Barr to assist John Durham in his supposed Spygate/Obamagate investigation. Bash was assigned to this role shortly after it was publicly revealed that then-Vice Presient Joe Biden had personally participated in the illegal unmasking of General Mike Flynn during the waning days of the Obama presidency.

From the official DOJ release on Bash’s resignation:

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. – U.S. Attorney John F. Bash announced today that he will resign from the Department of Justice on Friday, October 9, 2020, at 11:59pm. U.S. Attorney Bash issued the following statement:

This Friday—eight years to the day after I first joined the Department of Justice—I will step down as United States Attorney for the Western District of Texas. Last month I accepted an offer for a position in the private sector and informed the Attorney General of my decision. I tendered formal letters of resignation to both the President and the Attorney General this morning.

The Attorney General has elected to appoint Gregg Sofer to succeed me as U.S. Attorney. Gregg is an inspired choice. He is a veteran Department of Justice attorney, serving first in the National Security Division at Main Justice and then for over a decade as a national-security specialist in our Austin office. In the latter role, he built a reputation as a dogged and tremendously effective prosecutor. In 2018, I selected Gregg to serve as our office’s Criminal Division Chief, where he designed and implemented significant improvements to our operations, oversaw thousands of prosecutions, and provided me with invaluable advice on a range of important issues and cases. Since early this year, he has served in Washington, D.C., as Counselor to the Attorney General. He will make an excellent U.S. Attorney.

Attorney General William Barr offered the following statement:

I offer my gratitude to John Bash for his service as United States Attorney for the Western District of Texas. Since 2017, John has successfully led one of the largest U.S. Attorney’s Offices in the country. John has made significant contributions to the Department of Justice, including his service on the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee. I appreciate his service to our nation and to the Justice Department, and I wish him the very best.

[End]

Folks, this is just another signal that you should not expect anything real to ever come out of the Durham “investigation.” Think about it: If you’re a U.S. Attorney and you are in the midst of really getting to the bottom of a literal coup d’etat, of what is without question the single most important political scandal in U.S. history, do you just up and resign to take another job?

Probably not.

There will be no perp walks from Mr. Durham. No indictments, no prosecutions, not even a “report” summarizing his findings. Durham is just another swampy guy playing out the string and hoping for a Biden win so he can just sweep what little he may have done to this point under that huge DC Swamp rug. Mr. Bash is just getting out while the getting is good.

You should do the same.

This is about to happen in Portland. – Having a communist Democrat idiot like Ted Wheeler as their Mayor is apparently not depraved enough for the majority of Portland residents. A new poll finds the incumbent buffoon running 11 points behind this:

From a story at Willamette Week:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler trails his challenger Sarah Iannarone by 11 points, according to a poll of likely voters conducted by DHM Research on behalf of the Portland Business Alliance.

The results were presented at a PBA meeting last week.

Wheeler polled at 30% to Iannarone’s 41%, with the remaining 29% of surveyed voters split between writing in a candidate (16%) or remaining undecided (13%). It’s an especially notable result given that the poll was not conducted by either campaign, though PBA is supporting the mayor. (The poll has a four percentage point margin of error.)

[End]

For those unaware, Iannarone describes herself as “the Antifa candidate.” Not kidding. Also note that the Portland Business Alliance, whose members have been so devasted by the unending riots allowed to linger all summer by Wheeler, are actually supporting the incumbent because Iannarone is such a repugnant alternative.

Portland is a lost city filled with lost people.

Can the federal courts save America? – They’ve been trying to do exactly that over the past few weeks, with appellate courts overturning a series of clearly anti-constitutional decisions issued by Obama judges related to voting and after-election day vote counting in a variety of potential swing states.

Monday saw another crucial case go the right way, this time in South Carolina. From story at RedState.com:

Late Monday afternoon the Supreme Court issued a “Stay” with regard to an order from a South Carolina federal district court judge who rewrote a provision of South Carolina election law due to the impact of COVID 19.

Judge Julianna Michelle Childs, an appointee of President Obama, granted an injunction for Plaintiffs preventing the South Carolina election officials from enforcing a provision of South Carolina election law requiring a witness signature on an absentee ballot envelope.   Judge Childs set for the relief being sought by the plaintiffs as follows:

The instant Motion seeks to enjoin four provisions related to absentee voting in South Carolina. Plaintiffs allege that the application of three of these provisions during the COVID-19 pandemic violates the United States Constitution and federal law and seek injunctive relief solely for the upcoming November 2020 General Election. The three provisions at issue include: the requirement that another individual must witness a voter’s signature on an absentee ballot envelope for the ballot to be counted (“Witness Requirement”).

After about 60 pages of legal sophistry, Judge Childs finally gets around to holding the same way every other Obama-appointed Judge has held — that COVID 19 changes everything.  Election law requirements that are fine without a pandemic, are unconstitutional infringements on the right to vote under the Fourteenth Amendment with a pandemic.  But everything will be fine again when Donald Trump is no longer running for re-election:

….the court GRANTS Plaintiffs’ Motion for Injunction as to the Witness Requirement and ENJOINS Defendants, their respective agents, officers, employees, successors, and all persons acting in concert with each or any of them, from enforcing the Witness Requirement set forth in S.C. Code Ann. § 7-15-380, and from enforcing the Witness Requirement set forth in any other South Carolina statutes, on registered absentee voters only during the November 2020 General Election occurring in the State of South Carolina.

But the Supreme Court’s emergency “stay” prevents Judge Childs order from being enforced — and does so in terms that make it absolutely clear the state election law on requiring signatures on absentee ballot envelopes will be enforced four weeks from now.

[End]

So, chalk up another win for truth, justice and the constitution.

Elections matter, folks. Judges matter.

Speaking of judges… – Ted Cruz had some interesting things to say about Chief Justice John Roberts and the series of inexplicable decisions he has issued over the past four years, always siding with the court’s liberal minority.

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz says Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts “despises Donald Trump,” which accounts for a number of the decisions he had made from the top seat on the high court in recent years.

In an appearance on David Brody’s recently launched show “The Water Cooler,” Senator Cruz, an attorney and author of the new book “One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History,” told the host that “John Roberts has become the new Sandra Day O’Connor.”

Cruz said he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence, who in an interview last month, told David Brody that Justice Roberts has been a “disappointment to conservatives.”

However, Cruz believes that part of Roberts’ pivot away from conservative-minded jurisprudence is motivated by personal hatred toward the president. “I think it is personal,” said the senator.

“It is difficult to come up with two human beings more antithetical than John Roberts and Donald Trump, in every respect,” he continued.

[End]

Oh.

That is all.

Waiting for Barr and Durham: The 2020 Sequel to “Waiting For Godot”

Justice Department probe into Russia investigation could extend into late summer - CNNPolitics

In the last 48 hours we have discovered the following related to Spygate/Obamagate:

– The release of a series of text messages between multiple FBI personnel revealing that they knew the spying on the Trump campaign and efforts to frame General Mike Flynn were highly illegal and that they were so concerned about their own situations that they went out and purchased personal liability insurance policies in January, 2017;

– The revelation that the sub-source for Christopher Steele’s fake Dossier on Donald Trump was in fact a Russian agent and had been deemed by the freaking FBI itself as a “national security threat” as early as 2009. Despite this knowledge, James Comey and his FBI freak show allowed the Dossier to be used as the sole basis for no fewer than 4 fraudulent applications for FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign, Transition Team and Administration;

– The fact that Hunter Biden, while his dear old Daddy was squiring him all over the world to peddle influence to various nefarious characters, received a wire transfer from the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow for $3.5 million and several other wires of several hundred thousand dollars each.

In the face of all of these revelations in a 48 hour period, our national news media yawns and continues to pretend that President Trump is the guy with a Russia problem.

It was in light of these revelations and the Democrat/media’s current “peaceful transfer of power” hoax that I wrote a piece on Thursday asking “When do we get Our Peaceful Transfer of Power for 2016?” because that is something we never received from Obama and his evil minions, who are still today running a shadow government operation designed to regain the presidency. Joe Biden is just the bumbling meat suit face of that effort.

The next question to ask is, when are any of the people involved in this never-ending coup d’etat effort going to be held accountable by William Barr, John Durham and the Department of Justice? We found out on Thursday that Durham did in fact take over the investigation of all the myriad crimes of the Clinton Foundation from do-nothing U.S. Attorney John Huber early this year, as has long been rumored. But, just as with his plodding Spygate and Obamagate investigation, we have seen no fruit from that effort, despite Barr’s promises that such fruit would be borne by the end of summer.

Oops. We are now three days past that deadline.

I had an email from a friend in DC last night saying that rumors are flying that something’s going to happen today. That would make some sense in a very DC Swampy kind of way, given that Fridays are traditionally the day when when the Swamp’s snakes and skunks love to make big news so it will dominate the Sunday talk shows. But we’ve heard those rumors many times before and have been let down each and every time. Waiting for John Durham to actually do something is like the old movie “Waiting for Godot”. We keep waiting, but Godot never arrives.

Meanwhile, we are about to have an election in less than 6 weeks and well over half of the country still does not know a thing about any of this thanks to the wall of silence by the corrupt national news media. The only way to break through that wall is for Durham and his investigators to start breaking down doors and performing some very public perp walks of high profile figures like Comey and Strzok and Brennan and Clapper, all of whom have become major TV stars over the past few years.

It would be like arresting the cast of “Love Island” – even the GenZ-ers would have to pay some attention here.

Sundance over at TheConservativeTreehouse posted a piece last night speculating that Barr and Durham have now decided that the political atmosphere has just become too toxic to add indictments into the mix. Thus, Sundance speculates that Barr is using Sidney Powell – who released the FBI text messages – and the various Senate committees – who released the revelations about Hunter Biden and Steele’s Russian sub-source – to get all of this damning information into the public domain without drawing fire in on their own position from the news media.

If true, we have a word for that kind of skullduggery: Chickenshit. Sorry for the semi-profanity, but that’s what such an effort by Barr/Durham would be.

If Durham really does have the goods on these people, and really does have hundreds of sealed indictments waiting to be unsealed, then election timing simply should not even factor into his and Barr’s equation. Because if Durham really has the goods, that means that there are treasonous criminals who planned and executed a literal coup d’ etat effort on U.S. soil roaming free as birds right now. It would also mean that half of American voters are about to cast votes for the next president without being in possession of real knowledge about any of this.

That would be an incredible travesty of justice, and a stain on their reputations that Barr and Durham could never wash off. If they really do have the goods, the only time to act is now.

I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for Godot to finally arrive, though.

That is all.

Barr/Durham Produce Bupkis on Spygate, but DOJ Remains Productive on Other Fronts

Just a reminder that today is the last day of summer, which represents the deadline that Attorney General William Barr set for the American public to finally see the bearing of some fruit from the John Durham investigation into Spygate and Obamagate. Barr has been non-committal about whether that fruit would come in the form of a report, or in spectacle of the unsealing of indictments and arrests of some of the players.

Obviously, Mr. Durham is not going to produce a report today or anytime soon. Any such report would have been leaked by now to the New York Times and Washington Post as the result of the sieve-like vetting process within the Department of Justice. Given the lack of any rumors flying around this morning, it is also apparent that Durham won’t be making any arrests on this particular day.

Thus, Barr’s “end of summer” deadline will pass quietly, just as all of his earlier fake deadlines passed without event. As of midnight tonight, it will be safe for us all to assume that Durham and Barr will next use the looming elections as their excuse for further delay. No word on what excuse they will come up with after President Donald Trump wins re-election on November 3, but we can be sure they’ve already thought about that.

But the Barr/Durham inaction on the coup d’etat front doesn’t mean there is nothing good happening at the Justice Department. This morning, news broke that the DOJ has now formally designated New York City, Portland and Seattle as “anarchist jurisdictions” that are now subject to revocation of billions of dollars in federal funding.

From a report at the New York Post:

New York City was among three cities labeled “anarchist jurisdictions” by the Justice Department on Sunday and targeted to lose federal money for failing to control protesters and defunding cops, The Post has learned.

Portland, Ore., and Seattle, Wash., were the other two cities on the list, which was approved by US Attorney General William Barr.

“When state and local leaders impede their own law-enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said in a statement set to be released Monday.

“We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance,’’ the AG added.

“It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.”

White House Budget Director Russ Vought is set to issue guidance to federal agencies on withdrawing funds from the cities in less than two weeks.

[End]

As noted by the Post, the DOJ action is in response to an executive order issued by President Donald Trump a few weeks ago:

The “anarchist’’ designations come after President Trump earlier this month issued a memo ordering financial retribution against cities that have been slashing their police budgets during crime waves, or tolerating violent protests sparked by the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.

At the time, New York Gov. Cuomo infamously reacted by warning Trump he should watch his step in the state. “He better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York,” the Democratic governor said. “He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City, people don’t want to have anything to do with him.”

The Big Apple made the Justice Department’s list in part because its City Council approved a budget in July that cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion annual budget — even as murders and shootings in Gotham soared.

In July, the number of shootings in New York City skyrocketed 177 percent over the same period last year, and there was a 59 percent rise in murders. In August, city shootings soared 165 percent, while murders jumped about 50 percent.

The Justice Department said it also considered the fact that at least some of the city’s district attorneys have declined to prosecute people arrested for disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly during recent protests.

[End]

So, while Barr now appears to have abandoned any effort to truly correct the two-tiered system of justice that the DC Swamp has established over the past quarter century, at least he continues to be productive in other areas.

No doubt the three cities named on Sunday will file court challenges to this DOJ action, and no doubt they will find some Obama appointee in Hawaii  or somewhere else in the 9th Circuit’s jurisdiction to issue a national injunction. But, if the President appoints and the senate confirms another constitutionalist to the Supreme court over the next 43 days, this policy will no doubt become successful and be expanded other anarchist Democrat cities like Minneapolis and Chicago.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

That is all.

Are Barr and Durham About to Finally Drop a Hammer?

Next Monday is the last day of summer, Mr. Barr. – I note that this morning because back in August, Attorney General William Barr famously stated that John Durham’s investigation would bear some fruit before summer was over. Barr repeated that prediction in more than one interview, in fact.

Well, we’re pushing it right up to the deadline, and Durham has produced diddly squat, to use a common flyover country colloquialism. No indictments, no arrests, no midnight raids of elderly people’s homes of the sort made popular when Robert Mueller and his gang of thugs effectively ran the DOJ from May 2017 through March 2019. Not even a “Durham Report” which at this point would have value only in the sense that it would serve to inform the curious among us, which of course would exclude the entire national news media establishment.

Barr made a somewhat whiny speech at an event sponsored by Hillsdale College on Wednesday. In that speech he complained about career DOJ line prosecutors – the lowest level of prosecutor at DOJ – of often being out of control “headhunters” who go after individuals for mainly political reasons. You don’t say, Mr. AG? What tipped you off on that one?

Mr. Barr did not, however, go onto explain why, in his 20 months as AG, he has done nothing to resolve that problem. You know, like maybe fire some of those problem employees. Most likely, the answer is that he has not done that because doing it would be politically difficult. The entire corrupt media establishment would go after him with its collective hair on fire, just as these Democrat toadies will go after him and Durham should Durham ever actually do something real. Like, you know, prosecute the treasonous traitors who spent three solid years trying to execute a coup d’etat on U.S. soil.

The Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda already has its narrative in place: Any move by Barr/Durham at this point to actually attempt to exact a little real justice will be portrayed as “election interference” by the same media establishment that studiously ignored the Obama Administration’s spying on the Trump campaign and attempts to fix the election for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Those efforts went right up to Election Day that year, and once the election had come and gone, were immediately turned into an outright coup attempt.

That’s all clear on the public record now, and millions of Americans are fully aware of it. As is pretty much always the case in America today, the truth is exactly the opposite of what our Nazi-style media says: By doing nothing, Barr and Durham are in fact influencing the election in favor of the Democrats who are guilty, including Quid Pro Joe Biden himself.

Even with all of his do-nothingness thus far on Obamagate and Spygate, Barr does continue to show flashes of wanting to do the right thing. In that same speech, for example, Barr referred to the China Virus lockdowns and mask order as being “the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history” outside of slavery. Truer words were never spoken. But again, what is DOJ doing to push back on the despot governors, mayors and county judges invoking those patently unconstitutional order?

During an interview with Martha MacAllum on Fox News this week, Barr confirmed what I and others have been writing about for years now, that George Soros is subverting the American justice system by funding corrupt district attorneys who simply refuse to enforce the law. Interestingly, when Newt Gingrich made the same exact point on Fox’s “Outnumbered” show yesterday, he was silenced by the CNN-ish host and other panelists:

The New York Times has a breathless piece this morning bashing Barr for advising prosecutors to consider pursuing sedition charges against rioters and those who organized the riots during a meeting last week. In the same meeting, the Times alleges that Barr also “asked prosecutors in the Justice Department’s civil rights division to explore whether they could bring criminal charges against Mayor Jenny Durkan of Seattle for allowing some residents to establish a police-free protest zone near the city’s downtown for weeks this summer…”.

Good for him, if true. Of course, the Times story is based purely on anonymous “sources” who may or may not exist, so there is no way to know whether the news-faking paper of record just made the whole thing up.

But if it is true, it shows that Barr retains the right instincts, though he still has a problem taking action on them.

Interestingly, pretty much every other major media outlet has its own Barr-bashing report out this morning. A Google search reveals pieces including original reporting from CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, all going after the Attorney General for some instance or another of straying from the Democrat/Media preferred narrative. These are not just pieces echoing the New York Times – they all include their own themes and perceived Barr missteps.

What this looks like is a classic effort by the Nazi-style propaganda outlets to set a narrative in advance. That indicates to me that all of these corrupt media outlets believe that Barr and Durham are indeed about to drop a hammer or two soon. Maybe even on or before Barr’s self-imposed deadline of next Monday.

That would be nice.

That is all.

The Corrupt National News Media: A ‘Collection of Liars’ Who Endanger the American Republic

I’m old enough to remember a time when, if a U.S. president had brokered multiple historic peace agreements in the Middle East and one between Kosovo and Serbia, it would have been headline news for a week. There was a time when the president who accomplished this would have been able to hold a press conference with the White House press corps and have semi-curious reporters actually ask questions about those deals. Those things would have happened even in a Republican administration, and that time was not so long ago.

But those times are gone, and will never return without fundamental change in the media establishment itself, and the manner in which our society holds media operations accountable for the serial mendacity we see committed each and every day by cable news outlets, major newspapers and fake news-oriented magazines like The Atlantic. The simple fact of the matter is that the current status quo in the U.S. news media is not only not consistent with the maintenance of a free and open society, it is actively and openly hostile to it.

Up until a few years ago, observers could be relatively sanguine about the state of the news media. The American press has always been biased. Indeed, throughout most of our country’s existence, newspapers and magazines – effectively the only means of obtaining news until the 1920s – had no issue with being openly-affiliated with and supportive of specific political parties. So, the fact that media outlets were biased was simply the maintenance of 200+ years of status quo.

Indeed, it was only during the post-World War II era, with the advent of television news operations and the growing prominence of radio, that national media outlets even bothered to put up a pretense of somehow being unbiased. Even that thin veil of pretense was mainly driven by the evolving federal “fairness doctrine” that was implemented by the Federal Communications Commission in 1949. That doctrine required TV and radio broadcasters to provide balanced coverage of elections and political issues. For many years, beginning with the Radio Act of 1927, the federal government also enforced “equal time” rules that required broadcasters to provide equal time to opposing views whenever they presented editorial content. All of that was eliminated in the 1980s to accommodate the growing development of 24-hour cable news operations, led by CNN.

For many years – this is really true, all you young people out there – CNN actually advertised itself as being “fair and balanced.” Also true is the fact that MSNBC assumed the same posture for the first decade of its existence before becoming aggressively and intentionally leftist as it transformed itself into a megaphone for Barack Obama’s 2009 presidential campaign. Fox News also claimed to be fair and balanced at its incarnation in the mid-1990s, but now only the increasingly CNN-ish Bret Baier continues to make that claim as he signs off from his nightly “Fox Report.”

Even during the days of the “fairness doctrine” and equal time laws, the major media outlets were liberally-biased. Let’s face it: This is always going to be the case, given the leftwards-tilt of most college professors, especially those who teach journalism.

But there is a crucial, qualitative difference between being biased and just being outright liars. Walter Cronkite was biased, but he wasn’t generally an outright liar. The same was true of TV news figures like David Brinkley, Roger Mudd, and even into the pre-George W. Bush years of Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings. The shift from being figures who just put their own slants on otherwise factually-accurate news reports to being outright liars began in earnest following 9/11, led of course by Dan Rather and his use of transparently faked military documents in an effort to smear Bush while he was running for re-election. Things have only gone downhill from there.

Today, America is right back where it was during the advent of “yellow journalism” that came about in the early days of the 20th century. We’re back to having media outlets who openly pledge their allegiance to political parties or figures. If you can find a truly “fair and balanced” news operation at the national level today you will have discovered the media version of the ancient Incan and Mayan “cities of gold.” Legend has it that some such operations may exist out there, but people die before actually discovering them.

Attorney General William Barr called it out correctly on Friday when, in unusually blunt remarks, he referred to the mainstream press corps as “a collection of liars.”

From a report at NewsMax:

In an interview with Townhall, Barr’s no-holds-barred tirade zeroed in on coverage of months of racial justice demonstrations, some of which he said turned violent because of “street fighting radicals.”

“They’re basically a collection of liars. Most of the mainstream media,” he told Townhall. “They’re a collection of liars and they know exactly what they’re doing. A perfect example of that were the riots.”

He added, “Right on the street it was clear as day what was going on, anyone observing it, reporters observing it, it could not have escaped their attention that this was orchestrated violence by a hardened group of street fighting radicals.

“And they kept on excluding from their coverage all the video of this and reporting otherwise and they were doing that for partisan reasons, and they were lying to the American people. It wasn’t until they were caught red-handed after essentially weeks of this lie that they even started feeling less timid.”

According to Barr, “the national mainstream media has dropped any pretense of professional objectivity and are political actors, highly partisan who try to shape what they’re reporting to achieve a political purpose and support a political narrative that has nothing to do with the truth.”

“They’re very mendacious about it,” he continued. “It’s very destructive to our republic; it’s very destructive to the Democratic system to have that, especially being so monolithic. It’s contributing to a lot of the intensity and partisanship.”

[End]

What the AG said is absolutely correct: Our mainstream media is indeed just a collection of professional liars, operatives in propaganda operations modeled after those of Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. As Barr points out, this model is “very destructive to our republic,” specifically because it promotes a level of abject ignorance among the vast majority of the population, which in turn leads directly to the scenes of violence and destruction and death we see taking place on the streets of Democrat-controlled cities every day.

If you read the history of the rise of Hitler and his Nazi hordes, you will see that America today is roughly where Germany stood in 1938. This summer’s riots, staged and funded by operatives of the Democrat Party, were basically our version of Kristallnacht, which took place in November of that year. As most Americans are today, the Nazi-controlled news media ensured that the public was kept safely ignorant and misinformed about the true nature of the death and destruction that happened on that fateful night.

There was no public outrage, no public backlash against the Nazi hordes for all of that, because the corrupt news media ensured the vast majority of the population knew nothing about it, and those who did know about it put the blame on the innocent victims.

That is the role the U.S. news media performs for the Democrat Party in America today, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It is one thing for the Attorney General to call that out and speak the truth about the real state of our corrupt national media, but it is no more than a good start. If our society cannot devise some means of holding these depraved, anti-American media operations and their operatives accountable for their serial mendacity, then our Republic is well and truly doomed, and it could all happen far faster than we can even imagine.

That is all.

William Barr has two More Major Investigations to Conduct: Netflix and the Mueller Criminal Conspiracy

Barr has miles to go before he sleeps. – As if William Barr didn’t have enough on his plate, the past week saw the rise of two new major areas of investigation his department needs to conduct.

The release by Netflix of what can only be described as the streaming service’s entry into the child pornography market – a shoddy piece of trash called “Cuties” – clearly mandates that AG Barr sic his the FBI’s child porn and trafficking unit on Barack and Michelle Obama’s employer. Oh, and did you remember that Susan Rice sits on the board of directors of this company? Quite the coincidences there, huh?

Possibly the lone remaining semi-honest Democrat public figure, Tulsi Gabbard, is so disgusted by the movie that she decided to take on the leftist Perpetual Outrage Mob (which is not at all enraged about Neflix distributing child porn) by tweeting this yesterday:

The FBI arrests hundreds of oily-haired, slushie-sipping perverts every year for having images like that one on their hard drives. But let the Democrat Party-endorsed Netflix put out a film that graphically portrays 11 year-old girls being abused by adults, and, well, it’s all ok. Because, see, the Democrat Party and it corrupt toadies in the news media and entertainment industry have been trying to brainwash you into normalizing pedophilia in your society for several years now. This film is just the next step in that effort.

“Cuties,” by the way, won an award for directing last year at the Sundance Film Festival. Barr’s investigation should also be extended to the participants in that effort to distribute child porn as well.

As if that weren’t enough to put on DOJ’s plate, the revelation this week that utterly corrupt U.S. Attorney Andrew Weissman and his gang of American Gestapo thugs “accidentally” wiped at least 27 cell phones that contained their communications related to the investigation is about as blatant an instance of abuse of power and obstruction of justice as our nation has ever seen. Weissman and his charges claimed they “accidentally” wiped their phones by entering “incorrect passcodes,” a claim so lame that even the mentally declining Robert Mueller himself would be able to see through it.

To understand how literally unbelievable this excuse happens to be, check out this finding by an enterprising Twitter user who tried to replicate Weissman’s claim with his own IPhone:

Yes, friends, Weissman is claiming that he “accidentally” wiped his phone via a process that involves nine steps and takes over an hour and a half to accomplish. That’s quite the “accident” right there.

This is public fraud on a grand scale. It is as corrupt as corruption in government gets, which is no surprise given that Weissman was involved. The simple fact of the matter is that the Mueller Investigation, like operations Spygate and Obamagate before it, was an outright criminal enterprise. Every day that passes without a single indictment of any of the wrongdoers of any of those involved in those criminal enterprises only serves to destroy the public’s faith in the American system of justice.

Where are you, John Durham? What in the world are you actually doing?

That is all.

Despicable: Washington Post Threatens Americans With Post-Election Violence

The brainwashing wasn’t enough. Now, they’re threatening you. – I’ve noted each of the past two days the media’s ramping-up campaign to brainwash you into accepting the results of a stolen election. Thus far the campaign has been based on parroting a scenario laid out by a Democrat front group funded by Mini-Mike Bloomberg called Hawkfish. That scenario goes like this:

On Tuesday, Axios ran a story quoting a representative of the Bloomberg-funded Democrat firm called Hawkfish, laying out the scenario the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda is attempting to set up for the November Elections. The scenario envisions a socially explosive situation created by the Democrats. The first part of it involves President Trump holding a huge lead in both the popular vote and the Electoral College when we all trudge off to bed on Election Night. But that lead won’t hold as Democrat vote counters in Blue and Red states around the country “find” boxes and boxes filled with “mail-in ballots” that magically contain the number of votes Biden needs to overtake Trump’s Election Day lead.

See how that works? They are attempting to condition you to be willing to wait for weeks while Democrat operatives all over the country conveniently “find” boxes filled with enough fraudulent “votes” to tip the scales for Hiden Biden, as President Trump has hilariously begun to call him.

Today, the evil hacks at the Washington Post decided to take the brainwashing to its next logical step, issuing what can only be accurately characterized as an overt threat to voters.

Here is how they rolled that threat out on their Twitter account:

See how that works? It is “the election” that will spark violence – not the Democrats and their sponsored domestic terrorist groups, BLM and Antifa, who have been burning down Democrat-controlled cities since June. No, it’s the inanimate object – “the election” – that is the culprit here, just as it is “the gun” that is the problem with the massive gang-driven murder rates in Chicago and Baltimore and New York.

Thus, with this opening sentence, the evil minions at The WaPo support two Democrat Party goals: To further de-legitimize the U.S. election system, and to threaten voters against casting their votes for President Trump.

Note also that they don’t just limit their “catastrophic,” violence-inducing outcomes to a close election outcome that is legitimately undecided. Oh, no: A clear landslide in favor of the President won’t quell any riots and lead Democrats and their terror groups to concede defeat peacefully. The Post’s evil minions understand – and support – the fact that the Democrats will never concede and will resort to even more violence and destruction to try to get their way.

It is only via a “Biden landslide” that a peaceful outcome can be achieved in the Post’s “analysis,” which makes sense given that evil leftists understand that conservatives actually believe in the American system and the peaceful transition of power that had been American tradition until the Democrat Party decided to discard it after the 1988 Bush landslide over Dukakis.

The Post piece was written by someone named Rosa Brooks. No idea who that is, don’t really care. Brooks is some sort of representative of something called the Transition Integrity Project, which is no doubt a Democrat front group funded mainly by other front groups who are in turn funded by George Soros. Honestly, I don’t really even need to research that to know it is highly likely, and you can bet the evil minions at the Post know it, too.

Here is an actual passage from Brooks’s screed:

Picture this:

On the morning of Election Day, false stories appear online claiming that Biden has been hospitalized with a life-threatening heart attack and the election has been delayed. Every mainstream news organization reports that the rumors are unfounded, but many Biden supporters, confused by the bogus claims, stay home.

Still, by late that night, most major networks have called the election for Biden: The former vice president has won key states and has a slender lead in the national popular vote, and polling experts predict that his lead will grow substantially as Western states count an unusually high number of mail-in ballots. The electoral college looks secure for Biden, too.

But Trump refuses to concede, alleging on Twitter that “MILLIONS of illegal ALIENS and DEAD PEOPLE” have voted in large numbers and that the uncounted ballots are all “FAKE VOTES!!!” Social media fills with posts from Trump supporters alleging that the election has been “stolen” in a “Deep State coup,” and Trump-friendly pundits on Fox News and OAN echo the message.

Soon, Attorney General William P. Barr opens an investigation into unsubstantiated allegations of massive vote-by-mail fraud and ties between Democratic officials and antifa. In Michigan and Wisconsin, where Biden has won the official vote and Democratic governors have certified slates of pro-Biden electors, the Trump campaign persuades Republican-controlled legislatures to send rival pro-Trump slates to Congress for the electoral college vote.

The next week is chaotic: A list of Michigan and Wisconsin electors for Biden circulates on right-wing social media, including photos, home addresses and false claims that scores of them are in the pay of billionaire George Soros or have been linked to child sex-trafficking rings.

Massive pro-Biden street protests begin, demanding that Trump concede. The president tweets that “REAL PATRIOTS MUST SHOW THESE ANTIFA TERRORISTS THAT CITIZENS WHO LOVE THE 2ND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER LET THEM STEAL THIS ELECTION!!!” Around the nation, violent clashes erupt. Several people are injured and killed in multiple incidents, though reports conflict about their identities and who started the violence.

Meanwhile, Trump declares that “UNLESS THIS CARNAGE ENDS NOW,” he will invoke the Insurrection Act and send “Our INCREDIBLY POWERFUL MILITARY and their OMINOUS WEAPONS” into the streets to “Teach these ANTI-AMERICAN TERRORISTS A LESSON.” At the Pentagon, the Joint Chiefs of Staff convene a hurried meeting to discuss the crisis.

And it’s not even Thanksgiving yet.

[End]

Now, as you read this, right now, today, Democrat-sponsored domestic terror groups are staging nightly riots in places like Portland, Seattle, Denver and other Democrat-run cities. They’re about to add Rochester to the list as well. Those same groups this summer have turned vast swaths of other Democrat-run cities like Minneapolis and Chicago and Kenosha into smoldering ruins reminiscent of 1945 Nagasaki.

Thus, there are only two semi-credible aspects of Brooks’s deluded scenario. The first is the part where “Massive pro-Biden street protests begin” in various parts of the country. That’s likely going to happen regardless of the election outcome, and we all know it.

The second is the part where AG Barr opens an investigation into allegations of massive voter fraud, which is also certainly going to happen, as the Democrats have been telegraphing for some time now. Again, we all know that is going to be the case.

Otherwise, this fairy tale is just that: A fairy tale, but an evil one designed to intimidate U.S. citizens into voting for Joe Biden. The most outlandish part of it – and the part that gives away her personal predisposition as a leftist activist – is Brooks’s refusal to recognize that the only party that has refused to concede an election outcome in modern history is the Democrat Party, which has not done so since 1988. That’s a fact.

No responsible, real newspaper editor would ever dream of running the piece the Post ran today. The act of doing so is vile, despicable and frankly evil in its framing and intent.

Think of this: Election Day is still two full months away and they are already issuing overt, violent threats. Think of what the Democrats will do between now and November 3 as they see Biden’s chances steadily fade away.

Protect your loved ones, folks. These are very dangerous times.

Thursday News Roundup: Chris Wallace Fills in for CNN in Debates, Commie Portland Mayor Relocates

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – In case you missed it yesterday, the stock market rocketed skywards again on Wednesday amid ongoing positive economic news.

The NASDAQ shot over 12,000 for the first time to reach a new all-time high. The S&P 500 closed at 3,581, also a new record close. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial average rose by 455 points to close above 29,000 for the first time this year, finishing the day at 29,101. The Dow has now regained 98% of its losses early this year, and is within 400 points of its all-time record close.

Tired of all this WINNING? Not even close. We need at least another 4 years.

Facebook joins the Democrat/media effort to brainwash you into accepting a stolen election. – Facebook announced this morning that it is enacting two new measures designed to condition you to think it is President Trump, and not the Democrats, who is plotting to steal the November election.

Facebook says it will refuse to run political ads the week prior to Election Day, and that it will create a “new label” for posts by candidates claiming victory before the official results have been certified.

The first measure is a direct attack on the Trump Campaign, given its huge edge in effective social media advertising. The second measure is Facebook’s effort to coordinate the Democrat strategy laid out earlier this week by the Democrat front group Hawfish, which I covered in a piece yesterday. Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

On Tuesday, Axios ran a story quoting a representative of the Bloomberg-funded Democrat firm called Hawkfish, laying out the scenario the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda is attempting to set up for the November Elections. The scenario envisions a socially explosive situation created by the Democrats. The first part of it involves President Trump holding a huge lead in both the popular vote and the Electoral College when we all trudge off to bed on Election Night. But that lead won’t hold as Democrat vote counters in Blue and Red states around the country “find” boxes and boxes filled with “mail-in ballots” that magically contain the number of votes Biden needs to overtake Trump’s Election Day lead.

[End]

See the connection here? It’s pretty transparent.

Again, the media – including social media – is brainwashing you to be willing to accept a stolen election in the weeks following Election Day. They really aren’t even hiding it at this point.

This is CNN… – Watch Attorney General William Barr decimate slimy Wolf Blitzer on the question of mass mail-in voting:

Glorious.

Speaking of CNN… – CNN was left out of the list of debate moderators that was released on Wednesday. This is the first time in this century that the fake news channel will not have one of its Democrat Party operatives trying to slant one of the debates. The reason for this is obvious: Even the Commission on Presidential Debates knows that CNN is no longer anything resembling a legitimate “news” operation.

But that knowledge by the Commission did not stop it from loading up its list of “moderator” with nothing but Trump haters. That list is led by this guy:

Rey LoweIffert on Twitter: "#FNS it's very clear we are not  nation-building. We are standing up for international law and what is  right. why does Chris Wallace seem to have a real

Yes, friends, Chris Wallace, the lisping son of famous communist Mike Wallace, and a man who would be far more at home sitting next to Wolf Blitzer on CNN, will serve as the “moderator” of the first presidential debate. Those screams of joy you heard yesterday when this was announced were emanating from Joe Biden’s basement.

This invariable stacking of the deck in favor of the Democrat candidate is why the debate “commission” should be disbanded, and future debates should simply be organized by the respective campaigns. If the campaigns can’t agree to a format and moderators, then you don’t have debates. Simple.

You would think these Democrat-sponsored domestic terrorists would be more grateful. – Ted Wheeler probably still doesn’t understand this immutable fact of leftist revolutions, but he and his fellow Useful Idiots in the Democrat Party will be the first to be executed should their dream of a Marxist revolution ever come to full fruition.

Wheeler has received a clear preview of that difficult reality this week, as the same domestic terrorists he and his Party have encouraged and funded for almost 100 days now invaded his pricey condominium complex beginning on Sunday, and have continued targeting it all week. At one point they even set fires that threatened to burn the place down.

Obviously, poor Commie Ted has now been beset with complaints from his fellow wealthy and privileged neighbors, who were likely just fine with the riots as long as they didn’t come to their own neighborhood. So, Commie Ted announced yesterday that he would be departing his lovely condo and moving to undisclosed, but no doubt equally splendid grounds:

Wheeler wrote a letter to his neighbors informing them that he was moving in order to avoid more violence from protesters at the condominium.

“I want to express my sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position. It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration,” read the letter according to The Oregonian, which obtained a screenshot of the message.

He went on to say that it would be best for him “and for everyone else’s safety and peace” to move from the condominium.

[End]

Aw, poor Commie Ted, a victim of the evil he helped to create.

Speaking of Portland, how about those riots! – The Democrat-sponsored riots raged in Portland for a 99th straight night.  Here are some highlights provided by real journalist Andy Ngo, including information on where the extremely wealthy Commie Mayor might be moving:

The DOJ has now cross-deputized local law enforcement so that assaults by rioters on them now become federal crimes. Thus, William Barr outsmarts local Soros-funded DA who refuses to prosecute them:

Even the liberal courts in the 9th Circuit are turning against the Democrat terrorists:

The President signed a memo yesterday ordering his agencies to find ways to defund lawless Democrat-controlled cities like Portland:

Finally, here is a witness to the murder of a Trump supporter by Democrat domestic terrorists in Portland last weekend:

We Owe a Debt of Gratitude to Sundance at TheConservativeTreehouse

Everyone should go to TheConservativeTreehouse.com and read this piece put up by Sundance last night, detailing his briefing of lead investigator for John Durham, William Aldenberg.

No one outside of the Department of Justice knew Aldenberg’s identity as Durham’s lead investigator until Sundance revealed his name a few days ago. That had been kept secret, as has the entirety of Durham’s investigation and findings thus far.

Now, we know, thanks to Sundance’s determination and perseverance.

I don’t know who Sundance is, and frankly do not care. All I need to know about him is that he has worked tirelessly over the past four years to expose the Obama-era plot by corrupt officials within the intelligence community, the FBI and the DOJ to fix the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton, and then to expose the active coup d’etat engaged in by Obama holdovers and the Mueller Special Counsel team from 2017 through early 2019, when William Barr became Attorney General and shut that effort down for good.

Sundance’s information is always grounded in public information, always cited back to its source and thus has always been completely at odds with the seditious “Russia Collusion” that has been pushed by the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the national news media.

Not being content to merely expose the details of this still-active coup d’etat effort to his readers, Sundance determined to convey it all to key officials within the federal government in order to ensure that a) they have the full story, and b) they know that we know the truth.

Over the past several weeks, Sundance has, no doubt at great personal jeopardy, managed to meet with and brief a series of key officials within congress, the executive branch, and finally, the lead investigator for Durham himself. With his briefings complete, the officials who received them now have no real cover, no plausible way to claim they just didn’t know.

And even better, as Sundance points out, they all know that we know the truth.

So, take the time to read this terrific summary by Sundance today, and when you’re done, leave a comment thanking this great American for having the courage and persistence to lay it all out to the right people.

That is all.

Did Durham Just Lure Brennan into a Perjury Trap?

Welcome to your perjury trap, Mr. Brennan. – In a very interesting piece at RedState.com, a former prosecutor who writes under the pen name “Shipwreckedcrew” lays out a strong argument detailing his belief that Friday’s 8-hour-long interview of former Obama CIA Director John Brennan by U.S. Attorney John Durham and his investigators amounted to a classic perjury trap by the Department of Justice.

The author points to the fact that, instead of holding the interview at the more logical location at DOJ headquarters or the Hoover Building in Washington, DC, Durham chose to conduct it at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia:

Second, conducting the interview at the CIA facility is an interesting decision.  Why not question him at DOJ or FBI HQ?  The CIA is not a law enforcement agency.  John Brennan no longer works for the CIA.  Any CIA records that may have been needed over the course of the interview could have been made available in a secured facility at both those locations.

But that “records” excuse may have been the very justification given for the selection of the CIA HQ as the location for the interview.

DOJ and the FBI HQ are in Washington DC.  CIA Headquarters is in Langley, Virginia.

If you are geographically challenged, you can read the distinction as “United States District Court for the District of Columbia” v. “United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.”  If John Brennan offered any false answers to the investigators during the interview, the venue for that “false statement” crime is in the EDVA, not in DC federal court.

[End]

Pretty clever, if true. This would solve Durham’s conundrum about trying to get a conviction of Brennan from DC jury, which would be overwhelmingly made up of Democrats.

The former prosecutor also points to the interesting fact that Brennan chose to speak through his lawyer, Nick Shapiro, in a written statement, rather than just blast stuff out on his Twitter account, as he does on a regular basis:

First, it’s not Brennan’s statement.  Shapiro issued the statement to Obama Administration scribe Natasha Bertrand at Politico — guaranteed to dutifully publish anything requested of her by a former Obama era intelligence official now living in fear.  Shapiro then posted a string of eight Tweets on Twitter with the same text.

Both are devoid of any words actually spoken by Brennan — there are no quotations — nor is there any support offered for Shapiro’s claims by anyone actually in the room, such as Brennan’s attorneys.

Since when has Brennan been shy about saying anything on Twitter?  Why would Brennan go “third person” and have his thoughts about the interview expressed only in the words of someone else?  The most obvious reason is the statements are not going to be exactly accurate.  Running them through a third person builds in a level of “deniability” on Brennan’s part.

[End]

As I pointed out yesterday, Brennan has spent his entire adult life lying for a living and protecting himself from being held accountable for those lies by building walls of plausible deniability. Here, we see that lifelong habit in action.

The author also expands at length on the meaning of Shapiro’s claim that Brennan is not a “target” of the Durham investigation at this time. Here is a key passage:

So if you are not a “target” — meaning there isn’t sufficient evidence at this time to charge you with a crime — then by default you are a “witness.”

But “witnesses” can, and often do talk themselves into being “targets” during such interviews.  That was the purpose of the interview, Mr. Brennan, not because you have some wonderful insights to provide Mr. Durham and his investigators to make their job easier.

One important distinction between “target” and “witness” that is not well understood, but might be in play here, is that it is against DOJ policy to issue a grand jury subpoena to someone who is already a “target”.

A grand jury subpoena is a court order, under threat of contempt, to appear and answer questions under oath without the presence of counsel.  If a person is already a “Target”, the subpoena intrudes upon their Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and to be represented by counsel while undergoing “custodial” interrogation — they are under subpoena after all.  Witnesses before the grand jury are allowed to assert their Fifth Amendment right, but it forces them to assert that right before the grand jurors considering charges against them.  The government is not allowed to call a criminal defendant to take the stand in his trial and force him to assert his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent in front of the jury.  It is deemed prejudicial, and suggest to the jury that the defendant has something to hide.  The same principle applies to calling a “Target” in front of a grand jury and forcing them to assert their right to remain silent in front of the grand jurors without counsel present.

[End]

Oh. Again, as I pointed out yesterday, just because someone is not a “target” of an investigation today does not mean he will not become a “target” of that investigation tomorrow.

Isn’t all of that interesting?

There is much more in this piece, and you would to well to go read it in its entirety.

Now, this analysis may or may not be accurate. But if it is accurate, it is fair to point out that it would be entirely consistent with common DOJ practice in this kind of an investigation. These are the kinds of tactics that U.S. attorneys and other prosecutors deploy all the time.

What we have seen from both Durham and William Barr over the past year and a half is a consistent dedication to conducting this and other DOJ functions strictly by the book. Durham’s investigation has not employed the Gestapo-like strong-arm tactics or serial leaking of misleading or false information to the media, like we saw from the Mueller special counsel outfit.

Take it for what it’s worth, but this take on Friday’s meeting would be exactly the kind of thing we would expect to see from a by-the-book prosecutor like John Durham.

That is all.

John Durham Interviews John Brennan as the end of Summer Grows Near

If Brennan’s not a target for Durham, who is? – Former Obama CIA Director John Brennan was interviewed by John Durham and his investigators for 8 full hours on Friday as a part of Durham’s investigation into the SpyGate/ObamaGate election fixing/coup d’etat effort of 2016 – 2018.

No one really knows what was discussed during those 8 hours, but Brennan, through a spokesman, came out of it claiming to not be a target of the investigation, at least at this time. Here’s the statement:

Image

As has been the case throughout the course of his investigation, Durham and his team had no comment about the day’s activities. Thus, the public is left to make of the Brennan statement what it will.

Some will think it’s Brennan giving his pals in the corrupt news media a narrative to follow. Brennan has been a professional liar throughout his entire adult life – no word how he spent his childhood, but it was probably mainly spent lying to his parents, teachers, friends and family – and there is no reason to think he would have suddenly changed that mode of operation on Friday. This is certainly a valid line of thought.

Others will take Brennan at his word and conclude Durham is just another worthless smoke screen being placed before the public by a do-nothing Department of Justice at the behest of William Barr. Given the paltry results that Durham has produced thus far, it’s hard to say that is not a fair assessment. We certainly have no evidence otherwise, other than this week’s guilty plea by corrupt ex-FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who was let off with a very light sentence.

Personally, I think the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Durham is going to target individual conspirators against whom he and Barr determine they are likely to obtain a guilty sentence from a jury in Washington, DC. Given that the District of Columbia population is roughly 96% Democrat, doing that will require them accumulating evidence that is completely irrefutable. There simply cannot be any holes in the case for the defense to exploit in order to provide the jurors with a “reasonable doubt” that they will all be desperately searching for.

Men like Brennan and James Comey and James Clapper, who rise to the very highest levels of their respective organizations, are able to do that in large part because they are highly skilled at deflecting blame and setting up plausible deniability that insulates them from internal controversies that get people who work for them fired. They are extremely adept at setting up scapegoats and ensuring the lines of damning evidence never rise to their level.

Thus, it is fairly likely that Brennan is not a target of this investigation at this time, and that Durham is focused on obtaining indictments of or cooperation from smaller fish like Clinesmith, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr and Nellie Ohr. If he is really good at pressuring these smaller fish – and his career at DOJ indicates that he is quite skilled in this area – he may be able to get one or more of them to turn in order to protect themselves. That may well have already happened with Clinesmith, although the sentencing memo entered by DOJ in his case did not indicate as much.

The cooperation of someone like Strzok or Page might enable Durham to pierce the veil enough to get at Strok’s direct boss at the time, Bill Priestap. Cooperation from Priestap might enable Durham to go after his direct boss at the time, Andrew McCabe. Cooperation from McCabe might enable Durham to get a really big fish like Comey, and Comey could, finally, lead to Brennan.

But without any such cooperation, if these little fish are willing to let themselves be gobbled up while taking one for the treasonous team, then it is likely that those of us hoping for some real justice in this case will walk away highly disappointed at the final outcome.

Like it or not, this is how these investigations go. There is literally no reason at all to believe a single word Brennan’s spokesman had to say yesterday. But until we see some real results from Durham in terms of indictments and prosecution, there is also no real reason to think Brennan is a target at this moment in time.

Barr promised action by the “end of summer.” As of today, that is exactly one month away. Durham has 31 days to assure half of the U.S. population that justice still exists in our country. He can either become a true American hero, or prove he is just another Deep State snake.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Durham, Barr Claim a Scalp, Portland Rioters Now Attacking Hospitals

Barack Obama, the environmental preside…wait, what? – In yet another prime example of the reality that Democrat hypocrisy knows no bounds, Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, the man who spent 8 long years preaching the Climate Change fantasy, has now been revealed to be intentionally ignoring environmental laws during the construction of his $9 million home in Hawaii:

Scientists say that seawalls are the primary cause of beach loss in Hawaii and estimate that 20% of beach length in the state has been lost within the last century.

While modern laws have been developed to protect the state’s beaches, they have failed to do so as a result of as real estate loopholes, such as easements, often used to bypass the policies.

One might think that Nesbitt and Obama, who made environmental protection a major platform of his presidency, would be different and take the environmentally friendly action no matter the cost, but that appears not to be the case.

Permits obtained by ProPublica reportedly show that developers, after having torn down the property’s mansion, are planning to construct three homes, two pools, and a security perimeter on the property.

State officials confirmed to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and ProPublica that the Obamas will be the compound’s future occupants once the project is complete.

[End]

You just could never make these people up. And who in their right mind would want to?

Durham claims his first scalp – will others follow? – Attorney General William Barr promised a Durham “report” and other actions by “the end of summer,” which is September 22. We will know by then whether Durham has been conducting a real investigation intent on exacting real justice on real criminals, or whether it is been just another DOJ distraction.

On Wednesday, Durham extracted the promised guilty plea from little fish Kevin Clinesmith, the leftist activist FBI lawyer who falsified an email in order to defraud the FISA court and obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump administration. The plea agreement for one count of lying to investigators carries with it a maximum sentence of 6 months in prison and fine of $250,000, chicken feed for a guy who willingly participated in an active coup d’etat effort on U.S. soil.

If this is all there is to the Durham investigation, both he and Barr will go down as just a couple more corrupt footnotes to American history.  It’s their choice.

But Barr is most certainly not Jeff Sessions. – He is doing real work, unlike his useless predecessor in the job, and he provided a good example of that in a press conference yesterday that was largely ignored by the corrupt news media.

At that presser, Barr detailed more than 1,000 arrests and over 200 prosecutions under federal statues related to DOJ’s Operation Legend. Here’s an excerpt from a report at Fox News:

At least 217 people have been charged with a federal crime, and more than 1,000 arrests have been made in major metropolitan cities since the Department of Justice launched Operation Legend in July, U.S. Attorney General William Barr announced on Wednesday.

Nearly 400 firearms have been seized by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Barr launched Operation Legend on July 8 as “a sustained, systematic and coordinated law enforcement initiative in which federal law enforcement agencies work in conjunction with state and local law enforcement officials to fight violent crime,” the DOJ said in a release.

It was named in honor of 4-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was shot and killed while he slept in the early morning of June 29 in Kansas City, Mo. Last week, a Jackson County prosecutor announced second-degree murder charges against his suspected killer, 22-year-old Ryson Ellis, who was being held in Tulsa County Jail.

LeGend Taliferro, 4, was shot and killed while he slept in the early morning of June 29 in Kansas City, Mo.

“LeGend is a symbol of the many hundreds of innocent lives that have been taken in the recent upsurge of crime in many of our urban areas,” Barr said at a press conference in Kansas City. “His life mattered and the lives of all of those victims matter. His name should be remembered and his senseless death, like those of all the other innocent victims in this recent surge, should be unacceptable to all Americans.”

Barr said the federal government has dispatched to nine U.S. cities more than 1,000 additional agents from the FBI, ATF, Drug Enforcement Administration and U.S. Marshals Service to work shoulder to shoulder with state and local partners on homicide and assault squads to crack cases.

The government has also allocated $78.5 million in grants to support additional police positions, hire more prosecutors and improve technology to solve firearms crimes.

“We saw one result of those efforts last week when Kansas City Police arrested the suspected murderer of LeGend,” Barr said. “This arrest will not bring LeGend back but it will make his case an example of how we can come together to take violent criminals off the street and to make our communities safer.”

[End]

These are great results, but at the end of the day, local law enforcement is mainly up to local officials, and no DOJ has the resources to make up for all of the damage to America’s great cities being done by communist Democrat mayors and city councils. But you can’t blame Barr for not trying. Again, he is not Jeff Sessions.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – Speaking of one of America’s dying, communist-Democrat run cities, citizens in Portland suffered through their 82nd straight night of violent riots overnight Wednesday, rioting that is still ongoing as I write this piece early Thursday morning.

Here are some of the highlights, provide as always by real journalist Andy Ngo, who does his best every day to overcome the Soviet-style wall of silence from the corrupt corporate news media:

And on and on it goes.

Notably, not a single speaker at the communist Democrat Convention has uttered a word of condemnation of these rioters. Which is not at all surprising, given that domestic terrorists are in fact organized and funded by front groups for George Soros and the communist Democrat Party.

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.

William Barr Takes off the Gloves Regarding BLM

This is a big, big deal, folks. During an interview with Mark Levin aired Sunday night on Fox News, Attorney General William Barr took the gloves completely off regarding the Black Lives Matter domestic terrorist group that, along with Antifa, serves as the insurrectionist arm of the Democrat Party.

Some of Mr. Barr’s quotes appear below. Read them carefully and you will see the U.S. Attorney General speaking with perfectly clear eyes about the true nature of BLM, which is indistinguishable from its fellow Democrat-sponsored terrorist group, Antifa, as I have been pointing out to readers here for weeks now:

The United States is grappling with a new form of “urban guerrilla warfare” driven by the left’s “lust for power,” Attorney General William Barr told “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday.

Discussing the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through several U.S. cities, Barr told host Mark Levin that the organization —  which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group —  is comprised of “Bolsheviks” with a focus on on “some form of socialism, communism.”

“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic,” he said.

Barr compared the nationwide riots organized by Antifa to “a new form of urban guerrilla warfare.”

“The way the guerrilla…hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean…what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity,” he explained. “They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves. That’s where they swim. And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence.”

[End]

Now, watch as Barr links Antifa/BLM directly to their sponsors in the communist Democrat Party:

The group’s radical leanings are reflective of the Democratic party’s far-left shift in recent years, Barr said. “The left has “pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded” America and made a “secular religion” out of seeking “complete political victory,” he argued.

It began the day Trump won in 2016, “and from that point forward, there’s been the resistance,” Barr told Levin.  “They were trying to impeach him from Day One. They have done everything they can..and I think it’s because of the desire for power that the left wants.”

Power has become a “secular religion of the left,”  Barr asserted. “They want to run people’s lives so they can design utopia for all of us…and it’s the lust for power. And they weren’t expecting Trump’s victory. And it outrages them.”

[End]

Man, it’s like he’s been reading Today’s Campaign Update or something.

I mentioned this in the Monday News Roundup, but it deserves special focus: These comments and more that Mr. Barr made during his interview with Levin are not normal. They are not the ordinary, scripted talking points you see attorneys general roll out in the normal course of their daily business. AGs are normally careful not to offend the opposition party in congress, especially when it controls a majority of the House of Representatives and thus the DOJ budget.

Barr’s remarks here are essentially a notice to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden’s elder-abusing handlers that the gloves are now off. No more playing by the Marquess of Queensbury rules in which one punch is politely exchanged for another. Barr’s rhetoric signals that he’s now going into cage match mode.

It is also important to note the implications of Barr’s truth-telling about BLM as it relates the pro sports and entertainment industry. Barr’s equation of BLM with Antifa is a de facto declaration that he considers BLM a domestic terrorist organization, as he does Antifa.

This would be the very same BLM group whose logo now appears on NBA uniforms and courts; the same BLM group whose logo appears on Major League Baseball uniform jerseys; the same BLM group whose logos will appear on NFL uniforms this fall unless something changes. It is the very same BLM group to which everyone in Hollywood and the news media has genuflected and declared their undying fealty.

This is a big, big deal. Let’s hope we don’t see any “clarifying statements” from DOJ today trying to walk any of it back. BLM/Antifa and their communist Democrat sponsors are direct threats to our nation’s survival, and it is impossible to defeat an enemy unless you can first properly identify them with clear, focused eyes.

That is all.

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.

Friday News Roundup: Durham Targets Brennan, Portland Rioters Expand Their Operations

This happened on Thursday:

Now, ok, I get it: Many of you are going to respond with “well, it’s about time! What in the hell has Durham been doing????” Yeah, ok, get it out of your system. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

There, you done? Feel better now?

Ok. Look, in this kind of case, which involves literally dozens of potential targets for prosecution and dozens more potential witnesses who must be vetted, federal prosecutors like Mr. Durham will always – ALWAYS – wait to interview the big fish last.

The reason why is simple: They want to give the smaller fish – like, say, Peter Strzok or Bruce Ohr or Kevin Clinesmith – every opportunity to make a deal and turn state’s witness before they talk to the really big targets like Durham and Comey. This is the natural progression of any such investigation.

So, for better or worse, this is actually great news, a sign that Durham is finally getting to the end of his investigation. Attorney General William Barr has twice promised a “report” from Durham by the “end of summer,” which is September 22. Barr has also indicated that Durham has had at least one grand jury convened, and it is the job of a grand jury to true bill indictments.

Hopefully it isn’t all a Jeff Sessions-like smoke screen, but we will find out either way soon enough.

Stay tuned.

Hey, look: A random act of actual journalism at NPR. – Watch despicable Nancy Pelosi’s reaction as her trusted toady Judy Woodruff goes off-script and actually asks her a semi-tough question:

For a moment there, Woodruff must have remembered that she used to be a journalist. You can be sure she will not make that mistake again when talking to Pelosi.

And now a word from the mindless blithering hacks at Morning Joe. – Watch this clip and marvel as the liberals at Morning Joe twist themselves into racist pretzels in their efforts to serve as apologist for the Democrat Party’s addled nominee, Joe Biden:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. What you are watching here in real time is the Democrat Party removing its own mask and returning to its Jim Crow past. All for the sake of getting the Bad Orange Man out of the White House. Amazing.

Gosh, Ted, who tipped you off? – Portland’s communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler suddenly woke up on Thursday and realized that the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters who he has been allowing to run wild in his city are creating b-roll for President Donald Trump to use in his re-election campaign ads. Hey, I wonder what tipped him off?

From a piece at KGW8 TV in Portland:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell spoke about the ongoing violence in Portland during a news conference Thursday.

On Wednesday night, Portland police declared a riot, arrested 8 people and used tear gas after a crowd of a couple hundred people gathered outside the East Precinct. Some people in the crowd tried to set the building on fire while officers and others were inside, the mayor said. Others tried to smash the glass doors of the precinct building and threw large, heavy rocks and other items at officers.

Wheeler said what happened Wednesday night “was intended to cause serious injury or death, and it very well could have.”

“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people that you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating. You are attempting to commit murder,” Wheeler said.

[End]

Oh, you don’t saaaaayyyyy. But it gets better.

From a piece at Willamette Week:

“Don’t think for a moment that, if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump,” Wheeler said. “Because you absolutely are. You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during his campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.”

[End]

Ok, so, what did the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters do in response to their partner’s admonitions? Why, they expanded their operations into a residential district, naturally.

For coverage of that, we must turn to real, actual journalist Andy Ngo, since the hacks in the corrupt corporate news media refuse to do their jobs:

But never fear: The Democrat Antifa/BLM rioters did not abandon their downtown mission:

So, the situation in Portland – which your corrupt news media continues to describe as “mostly peaceful” – is now about to spiral out of control unless the rioters’ Democrat sponsors pull their funding. Maybe this was why President Trump was once again speculating about ramping up federal involvement in that city again yesterday.

That is all.

Sally Yates Testimony Proves America Needs a Durham Report After All

I and others have argued for the past year against any need for a “report” from John Durham at the completion of his investigation into SpyGate/ObamaGate, whatever you wish to call it. Mr. Durham is, after all, a federal prosecutor, and the job of a prosecutor is not to write reports like those we have seen from Inspector General Michael Horowitz since 2017, but to convene grand juries, obtain indictments, file charges, have the FBI make arrests and then obtain convictions.

The argument against the need for any voluminous report from Durham is that compiling such a thing would be a waste of time that would distract Durham and his staff from focusing on the central tasks at hand. After all, wouldn’t the indictments and trial speak for themselves, educating the public about the treasonous actions taken by high Obama officials? Isn’t that how our system of justice is supposed to function? I thought so, and so did many others.

But that was before we saw Sally Q. Yates, the corrupt Obama holdover former acting Attorney General who smeared General Mike Flynn and refused to enforce President Trump’s initial travel ban before the President unceremoniously fired her during the early weeks of his administration, testified today before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Yates’s testimony was such a case study in obfuscation, distraction, blame-shifting and outright fabrication – all of which will simply be parroted by a fawning news media – that it dawned on me today that the nation will indeed require a comprehensive report from Durham simply for the purpose of setting an official record and serving as a public guide for what is to come. Because otherwise, that official record will be dictated by the professional liars in the media and the political left.

Yates, for example, expressed her sincere disappointment that the FBI did not properly vet the Steele Dossier that became pretty much the sole basis for obtaining FISA warrants to allow the DOJ/FBI cabal to spy on the Trump Campaign and transition team. She threw then-FBI Director James Comey under the bus as being mainly responsible for this travesty, even though she personally signed two of what eventually became four FISA applications that used that false Dossier. She took no personal blame at all for simply rubber stamping what she was handed without asking probing questions or conducting the slightest due diligence.

During the same hearing today, Yates also claimed to have been personally unaware that the Steele Dossier had been paid for by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign, a preposterous notion that no thinking person really believes. She also claimed to have had no idea that her deputy, Bruce Ohr, spent months under her watch facilitating contacts between Christopher Steele and various officials inside the DOJ, the FBI and Congress. An even more preposterous notion.

Yates also hilariously claimed that George Papadopoulous was in fact an agent of the Russian government, a reprehensible allegation that has been proven false repeatedly by IG Horowitz and several other investigations. She also stated her steadfast belief that General Flynn lied to FBI Agents Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka during their entrapment interview, despite the now-revealed fact that both agents told their superiors that they did not believe Flynn had lied to them shortly after that interview took place.

The great intrinsic value in these Judiciary Committee hearings that are finally being convened by Chairman Lindsey Graham a year later than they should have been is that they will expose Yates and her fellow coup plotters for the despicable liars they all truly are, and do it all while they are under oath. That’s all great, but someone in a position of authority still needs to compile an official guide that ties together all the moving parts and exposes all the myriad lies these professional prevaricators will weave into their testimonies.

This is the most complex and dangerous scandal in U.S. history, and Americans deserve to have someone in authority lay it all out for them so that they can fully comprehend how dangerously close the Cabal came to overthrowing a duly-elected government by false means. Durham is presumably investigating all of this, and will know where all of these bodies are buried.

So yes, we will need a Durham Report after all, if only to serve as a sort of in-game program type of guide that will allow the audience to follow along as the indictments and trials [hopefully] finally start to take place.

Attorney General William Barr has twice promised we would see such a report before the end of summer. The summer ends on September 22.

Time is growing short.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Ted Wheeler’s Mendacity and William Barr’s Unnoticed Bombshell

Let’s make a deal. – Here’s an idea: Let’s trade Portland and Seattle to China in exchange for Hong Kong and a player to be named later. Everybody involved would be happier. Think about it.

Wait. I thought these were “peaceful protests”??? – In a perhaps unconscious display of exactly how deceitful and despicable he and his fellow Democrats truly are, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler – along with a member of the city commission – requested a sit-down with Department of Homeland Security leadership “to discuss a ceasefire and removal of heightened federal forces from Portland.”

From a piece by KGW8 TV in Portland:

Monday evening’s statement is a turnabout for Wheeler, who previously said he wouldn’t meet with DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf even if he was invited.

Wheeler had a phone conversation with Wolf two weeks ago. He said he wanted federal officers off Portland streets, and then “asked him to clean up the graffiti on local federal facilities.”

Hardesty, a longtime police reform advocate, has also denounced federal officers being in Portland. She has also been critical of Wheeler’s leadership during the protests, even going as far as telling the mayor, who is also the police commissioner, that if he “can’t control the police, give me the Portland Police Bureau.”

Monday’s request also comes as reports indicate more federal officers are on their way to Portland. Oregon Public Broadcasting and the Washington Post reported President Donald Trump’s administration has deployed an additional 100 federal officers to protect federal buildings in downtown Portland, including the federal courthouse which has been the epicenter of nightly protests.

[End]

ummmm…does anyone else see the multiple inconsistencies here? First, if the protests are “peaceful” as Wheeler, his fellow Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the national news media like to claim, why is there any need for a “ceasefire”? Doesn’t the term “peaceful” imply that no hostilities are taking place?

Second, Wheeler, the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies continue to claim that these “peaceful protests” are entirely organic events with no organizing entities overseeing them and funding them. If that is the case, then how can anyone – much less Wheeler – claim to represent these unorganized, organic protesters?

Here is what is really happening here: The polls are starting to turn on the Democrats as more and more Americans are able to see video of the extremely violent riots that have been ongoing in Portland for more than 60 straight days now. The TV news operations continue to refuse to air those videos, but thanks to the work by real, working journalist Andy Ngo and others, millions and millions of Americans have been able to now see what is really taking place through social media channels.

As I have repeatedly pointed out, Democrats make literally every decision based on polling and focus groups, and they view the staging and funding of violent and destructive riots as just another tool in their toolbox of political tactics. Thus, these riots are fine with them until the polls start to go bad, as they are now finally doing. This is why the talking points suddenly switched late last week from outright denying that any violence was taking place to now attempting to blame all of the violence on the presence of federal personnel who are there to prevent the rioters from burning down the federal courthouse.

So, Wheeler now becomes the party’s point man in finding a semi-graceful way out, and a negotiation of a “ceasefire” is the new political tactic of the day. Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf should simply inform Wheeler that his personnel will continue to do their jobs until the Portland police either get control of the situation themselves, or request the National Guard to come in and clean it all up.

There can be no compromise with Marxist insurrectionists, which is what the rioters and Wheeler himself are.

This supercut retweeted by President Trump this morning is fantastic:

A Barr bombshell goes largely unnoticed. – While the focus of coverage of the hearing yesterday is properly on the outrageous behavior of the committee Democrats, the single most important moment to me came during the exchange between Mr. Barr and Ohio Republican Jim Jordan.

That exchange included Mr. Barr informing Jordan that, in addition to the ongoing Durham investigation into the origins of Obamagate, he has yet another U.S. attorney in Texas looking into the rampant illegal unmasking effort targeting U.S. citizens that took place throughout the Obama Administration’s 8 long years in office.

Watch the clip – the key exchange takes place starting at the 1:27 mark:

Transcript:

Jordan: 38 people unmasked Michael Flynn’s name 49 times in a 2-month time frame. Seven people at the Treasury Department unmasked Michael Flynn’s name. Is this an issue that Mr. Durham is looking into?

Barr: I’ve asked another U.S. attorney to look into the issue of unmasking. Because of, you know, the high number of unmaskings, and some that do not readily appear to have been in the line of normal business.

Jordan: [Clearly surprised by this information] Wait, wait, I want to be clear. So there is another investigation specific to that issue that is ongoing at the Justice Department right now?

Barr: Yes.

Jordan: Wow, that’s great. So, Mr. Durham is looking at how the whole Trump/Russia thing started, you have another U.S. attorney – can you give us that U.S. attorney’s name? Is that something you’re comfortable doing, or…

Barr: John Bash of Texas.

Jordan: John Bash of Texas is looking specifically at the fact…

Barr: …at unmasking…

Jordan: …38 people, 49 times, unmasked Michael Flynn’s name, and probably other unmaskings that took place in the final days of the Obama/Biden administration. Is that accurate?

Barr: Actually, a much longer period of time.

Jordan: Even before that.

Barr: Yes.

Jordan: Thank you, Mr. Barr, I appreciate that. That is information that the Committee did not know.

[End]

Boom.

So, why does this matter? I have written several times in the past about the fact that Obama’s final NSA Director, Admiral Mike Rogers, was that rarest of rare animals in the Obama administration: A true American patriot.

It was Admiral Rogers who first informed then-President-elect Trump that he and his transition team were being spied upon just days after the 2016 election. Rogers discussed that reality with Mr. Trump at Trump Tower, where the transition team was being housed. The very next day, Trump moved his team out to one of his New Jersey golf resorts where it remained until the inauguration.

Rogers had discovered the fact that Obama officials had used contractors working for the FBI and the various intelligence agencies to abuse the unmasking process, most likely going all the way back to 2009, through the use of many thousands of search queries into the NSA database. Upon making that discovery, Rogers immediately banned contractors from accessing that system, which was the reason why, from that point forward, you see Obama deploying all manner of his own officials at odd places like the Treasury Department, his UN Ambassador Samantha Power, his National Security Director Susan Rice, and even Vice President Joe Biden doing the unmaskings themselves.

NSA director Mike Rogers's remarkable comments about Trump's ...

Admiral Mike Rogers

We have also known for a couple of years now that this illegal spying was not limited to the Trump Campaign and Transition Team. The same was done to Republican presidential contenders Ben Carson, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and even to Democrat/Communist Bernie Sanders and his campaign. Indeed, this systematic and illegal abuse of the NSA database by contractors spying on domestic political enemies goes all the way back to Obama’s first year in office.

That, friends, is what U.S. Attorney John Bash of Texas is looking into.

So now the Democrats and their disgustingly corrupt toadies in the news media have one more target to demonize.

Isn’t it glorious?

That is all.

Gerrold Nadler Presided Over a Chilling, Dark Train Wreck of a Hearing With William Barr

“Disgrace” is not the only word to use to describe the behavior of Chairman Gerrold Nadler and his fellow Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee yesterday during their hearing with Attorney General William Barr, but it’s the most accurate. Other appropriate words to use to describe it would be despicable, depraved, demented, deluded, and, as Mark Levin hilariously said it, the most miserable collection of “assholes” ever to exist in the U.S. congress.

Any Republican who, after watching that proceeding, continues to refer to Democrat members of congress as “colleagues” or, as Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and all the other Senate RINOs love to say, “our friends on the other side of the aisle” needs to be defeated in their next re-election attempt. These are not your friends; they are not your colleagues, a word that demands some semblance of collegiality be present in order to be true. They are your enemies, and that is how they regard you.

Simply put, this hearing was delayed by the fact that Nadler supposedly was involved in a “car wreck” on his way to work in the morning (doubtful this is actually true), and he then presided over a massive train wreck for the rest of the day.

The U.S. system of government – the constitution, the separation of powers among three branches of the federal government, and the power sharing between the national government and the various states – is inextricably dependent upon two fundamental factors: 1) that the voters will by and large elect people of good will who love this country to become their representatives in the government; and 2) a spirit of collegiality and compromise between the major parties and factions that allow the government to get things done.

If it was not already obvious to you, then yesterday’s hearing should have shattered any doubt that Democrats have completely abandoned both of those fundamental foundations of the American Republic. After watching that spectacle of Democrat after Democrat after Democrat refusing to allow the witness to answer a question without childishly shouting “reclaiming my time” or rudely interrupting him when his answers made them look even more foolish, or even allowing the witness to take a 5 minute bathroom break after several hours of uninterrupted clown show, if you still believe that those Democrats are people of good will who love this country and have any interest in compromising their totalitarian aspirations in any way, shape or form, then you are a foolish person indeed.

John McCain, one of the most despicable RINO surrender monkeys to ever serve in the United States Congress, was fond of praising the level of “comity” that he maintained with his Democrat friends in the Senate. That was in fact McCain’s favorite word to toss out there whenever he was sucking up to Chris Matthews on MSNBC or Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

The definition of “comity” is “courtesy and considerate behavior towards others.” If McCain were alive today (has his funeral ended yet?) I would love to ask him at what point in yesterday’s hearing did he observe “comity” emitting from his “friends on the other side of the aisle?”

Yesterday was a complete abandonment by the Democrats of any further pretense of engaging in the normal functioning of the American government. It was a clear and unambiguous signal that they believe they are going to succeed in stealing the November elections and regain power, and when they do, they are going to punish anyone who has opposed them. At long last, Nancy Pelosi, one of the most evil women to ever occupy this planet, sees her end goals in sight and her minions are jumping the gun on taking her retribution.

If you are a thinking person who was shocked and disgusted by yesterday’s display, consider this: That was just one day. Under a Joe Biden presidency armed with majorities in both houses of congress and the filibuster rule having been repealed by the Democrat senate, this is what every day will look like in America. You will be under constant assault for 1,461 days. Think you will survive that? Think the country can?

These people hate you and would rather you were dead. If that is not clear to you after yesterday, then you cannot be convinced until it is too late to do anything about it.

America simply cannot be governed by these lunatics for four years and survive intact.

That is all.

The Pace of Obamagate Unraveling is Quickening

Is Peter Strzok Cooperating with John Durham? – Former Fox News reporter Adam Housley thinks so. Since leaving Fox, Housley has continued to stay in touch with his sources at the DOJ and within the Intelligence Community, and periodically reports interesting information on his Twitter feed.

He recently issued two tweets indicating he has been told that FBI Super-Duper Agent and aspiring latin lover Peter Strzok is now cooperating with Durham and his investigators:

To reinforce the point I made yesterday about Durham’s job in unraveling the treasonous activity that took place in the Obama FBI/DOJ/CIA being incredibly complex, I’d also point you to this recent tweet from Housley:

And this one…

Meanwhile, on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures” program hosted by Maria Bartiromo, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham told Bartiromo that the FBI “lied their asses off” about the reliability of the Steele Dossier, and that he will be releasing more proof about that before the end of this week: “Here is what I think I’m going to be able to show to the public. Not only did the FBI lie to the court about the reliability about the Steele dossier, they also lied to the Congress. That’s a separate crime.”

Obviously, everything Graham says has to be taken with a grain of salt. But it is worth pointing out that, on the same program Sunday before last, Graham told Bartiromo that his committee had uncovered proof that Steele’s sub-source was a complete fraud. Of course, Director of National Intelligence John Raticliffe – who is proving to be every bit the bulldog in that job that his predecessor, Ric Grenell was – released some previously-classified documents last week demonstrating Graham’s point, and is apparently planning to release more documents this week.

This is all unraveling now, folks, and the pace is quickening. As I’ve chronicled here over the last year, all of the information conclusively proving the treasonous actions of the coup cabal within the FBI/DOJ led by James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Strzok is now out on the public record. Everyone who has been paying attention and has the ability to reason logically now understands the monumental nature of the crimes committed against our very system of government by these despicable coup plotters, and that the organizing momentum behind it went all the way up to the Oval Office itself.

Today’s testimony by Attorney General William Barr before the disgraceful House Judiciary Committee may well be designed to serve as the kicking-off point for more concrete action coming from the Durham investigation. I know many readers remain skeptical of my faith in Barr and Durham, but I would urge you to pay attention to what Barr is going to tell Nadler and company this morning in his opening statement.

In that statement, Barr points to the fact that he had no prior relationship with President Trump when he agreed to take the AG job. In fact, he was 70 years old and sliding towards a well-earned and deserved retirement after a lifetime of legal practice and service to the country. Instead, he agreed to take on the most pressure-packed assignment in the nation outside of the presidency itself.

Many skeptical readers continue to believe that Barr willingly took on that assignment and all of the character assassination and threats he knew would be coming his way from desperate Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media so that he could get into the job and do….nothing.

I don’t believe that’s why he took that job, and I believe events of the next month or so will prove that assessment to be correct.

We’ll see.

That is all.
