Mueller Impanels Grand Jury. Be Vewy, Vewy Quiet…Elmer…er…Mueller’s Hunting Collusion. Heh Heh Heh Heh Heh. (A KJ Analysis)

August 4, 2017

Mueller-Traps-600-LA

The moment that it was announced that a “Special Counsel” had been named and it was announced who it was, the little hairs on the back of my neck stood straight up.

Make no mistake. Mueller is a part of the Washington Establishment.

While it is true that he served under both a Democratic and Republican President, he is still quite partisan. His loyalties are to the Washingtonian Status Quo.

That is why he has expanding his investigation into the business dealings of a then-private citizen.

What boggles the mind is the fact that Donald J. Trump and Donald Trump, Jr. have committed no crime.

Even the Liberal Professor Emeritus from Harvard, Renown Legal Scholar Alan Dershowitz has written in op eds that no crime has been committed.

But, that has not stopped Mueller.

Per Foxnews.com

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury to investigate Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

The move is seen as a sign the investigation into election interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign is heating up and entering a new phase. Reuters also reported that grand jury subpoenas have been issued in connection with the meeting Donald Trump Jr. had with a Russian lawyer and others last year. 

Russia has denied having a hand in the U.S. presidential election. President Trump, too, has strongly denied allegations of collusion and has frequently called the investigation a “witch hunt.” 

Grand juries allow prosecutors to subpoena documents and get witness testimony on the record. They also can seek indictments. 

Ty Cobb, special counsel to the president, told Fox News on Thursday he wasn’t aware that Mueller had impaneled a new grand jury but said, “We favor anything that brings this investigation to a swift conclusion.” 

Cobb also told reporters that, “Grand jury matters are typically secret,” and the White House “is committed to fully cooperating with Mr. Mueller.”  

Trump attorney Jay Sekulow downplayed the significance of the grand jury, calling it “a standard operating procedure when you’ve got a situation like this.”

“We have no reason to believe President Trump is under investigation,” Trump attorney John Dowd told Fox News.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders noted that former FBI Director James Comey repeatedly said Trump was not under investigation earlier this year. 

Mueller, who now has a team of 16 attorneys, was brought on as special counsel in May. Prior to his involvement, federal prosecutors reportedly had been using another grand jury, in Alexandria, Va., to help with their criminal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The Flynn case focuses on his work in the private sector on behalf of foreign interests. 

Asked Thursday about the Journal report, the special counsel’s office had no comment. 

Trump and his allies have in recent weeks openly criticized Mueller, with one Republican lawmaker even calling for him to step aside. 

Other lawmakers have responded with proposals that could serve to shield Mueller from being fired.

Trump also has fumed about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Russia case, which cleared the way for Mueller’s eventual appointment — though Sessions has recently been told by the White House his job is considered safe. 

Thomas Zeno, a former federal prosecutor, told the Journal that impaneling a grand jury is “confirmation that this is a very vigorous investigation going on.”

Zeno cautioned the step does not automatically mean Mueller will bring charges but added “it shows he is very serious. He wouldn’t do this if [the investigation] were winding down.”

As I sit down to write this post after a very long second day of a new assignment given to me by the company I work for, images are playing through my head after reading this article.

I am remembering the night of November 8, 2016…the scene of astonishment, disbelief, and unstoppable grief among Hillary Supporters…from those who had gathered to hear her presumed Victory Speech who were sent on their way by John Podesta to the panel of anchors and “Poltiical Pundits” on MSNBC who were so dejected that they resembled an  extended version of the painting of the solemn farmer and his wife by Grant Wood, titled “American Gothic”.

The unstoppable grief of Modern American Liberals over the victory of Donald J. Trump has led them to carry on a National Temper Tantrum highlighted by Fake News Stories, unsubstantiated rumors, and Machiavellian plans and schemes being carried out in the halls of our Nation’s Capitol.

Which brings me to the next images running through my head…scenes from the classic movie starring Jimmy Stewart, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”.

Naive and idealistic Jefferson Smith, leader of the Boy Rangers, is appointed on a lark by the spineless governor of his state. He is reunited with the state’s senior senator–presidential hopeful and childhood hero, Senator Joseph Paine. In Washington, however, Smith discovers many of the shortcomings of the political process as his earnest goal of a national boys’ camp leads to a conflict with the state political boss, Jim Taylor. Taylor first tries to corrupt Smith and then later attempts to destroy Smith through a scandal.         

I have been chronicling since President Trump’s Campaign started as to how he threated to upset the Washingtonian Status Quo and how the Democratic Elite and the Vichy Republicans as well, viewed him as an “outsider” unfit to hold the highest office in the land.

Follow me, boys and girls…

Mueller’s 16 lawyers who are investigating for corruption are Democrats who donate to the DNC.

Therefore, they are hardly “objective”.

As I have written before, the frenzy which those who are still grieving Hillary’s loss have built themselves into as a group resembles the mentality of an old West Lynch Mob.

And that mob stretches from UC Berkeley to Capitol Hill.

They want a hanging, and by gum, there WILL be a “hanging”, even is it has to be Donald Trump, Jr., in order to teach the President a “lesson” as to who is REALLY in charge of this country.

Being the minority Political Ideology in America has never stopped Modern American Liberals from trying to enforce their will upon the American people.

On November 8th, the Electoral College, put in place by our Founding Fathers, stopped them.

The Russia-Trump Collusion Fairy Tale is their attempt to circumvent our Constitution.

And , it is apparent that Mueller is a part of “The Resistance”.

And, all of us average Americans, living between the coasts, who put Trump in office are watching the biggest “railroading” of a public official in our nation’s history.

Mr. President, it’s not time to “Drain the Swamp”.

It’s time to FLUSH IT!

The Trump/Russia Collusion Fake News Fairy Tale: Why Liberals Redefine the Meaning of Words

July 19, 2017

Mirage-600-LI

The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so. – Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that on Martha McCallum’s program…

Professor Jonathan Turley said the president’s critics are so eager to “bag a Trump” that their hunt extends the definition of a crime “well beyond its legal moorings.”

Martha MacCallum reported the latest source of Trump criticism is a previously undisclosed meeting between the president and Vladimir Putin at a German dinner.

However, the White House responded by saying Trump got up from his seat to approach his wife who was assigned a seat next to Putin and his translator.

Trump apparently spoke with the trio for some time.

Turley, of George Washington University in Foggy Bottom, D.C., said Trump critics “reflect a level of hyperventilation we have in Washington now.”

He said that collusion on its own is not a crime, but that any conspiracy involved might be.

Turley said that people will not like a world where “treason” is more broadly defined in that way.

He said that Trump has been accused of committing crimes, despite his alleged actions falling well short of what separates a crime from a political faux pais.

“People are so eager to bag a Trump that they are willing to take these crimes and take them well beyond their legal moorings,” he said.

On July 11th, Alan M. Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus and author of Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law and Electile Dysfunction, wrote the following op ed for foxnews.com

Special Counsel Robert Mueller will surely be looking into the meeting between Donald Trump, Jr., and a Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya.  Part of the meeting was also attended by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, and Paul Manafort, who at the time was running Trump’s campaign.  It now seems clear from the emails that the Trump people went to the meeting expecting to be given dirt on Hillary Clinton from the Russian government.  The question remains, if this is all true, is it criminal?

The first issue that must be addressed by Mueller is whether any existing criminal statutes would be violated by collusion between a campaign and a foreign government, if such collusion were to be proved? Unless there is a clear violation of an existing criminal statute, there would be no crime.

Obviously if anyone conspired in advance with another to commit a crime – such as hacking the DNC – that would be criminal. But merely seeking to obtain the work product of a prior hack would be no more criminal than a newspaper publishing the work product of thefts such as the Pentagon Papers and the material stolen by Snowden and Manning.   Moreover, the emails sent to Trump Jr. say that the dirt peddled by Veselnitskaya came from “official documents.”  No mention is made of hacking or other illegal activities. So it is unlikely that attendance at the meeting violated any criminal statute.

Perhaps mere collusion by a campaign with a foreign government should be made a crime, so as to prevent future contamination of our elections. But it is not currently a crime.

Whether or not such collusion, if it occurred, is a crime, it is clear that the American people have the right to know whether any sort of collusion –legal or illegal – took place.  And, if so, what was its nature.

The Mueller investigation is limited to possible criminal activity.  Probing the moral, political or other non-criminal implications of collusion with, or interference by, Russia is beyond the jurisdiction of the special counsel.  It is the role of Congress, not the Criminal Division of the Justice Department, to make changes in existing laws.  Perhaps mere collusion by a campaign with a foreign government should be made a crime, so as to prevent future contamination of our elections.  But it is not currently a crime. 

Nor will it be easy to draft a criminal statute prohibiting a campaign from using material provided by a foreign power, without trenching on the constitutional rights of candidates.  But this is all up to Congress and the courts, not the special counsel, with his limited jurisdiction.

That is why the entire issue of alleged collusion with, and interference by, the Russians should be investigated openly by an independent nonpartisan commission, rather than by a prosecutor behind the closed doors of a grand jury. 

The end result of a secret grand jury investigation will be an up or down determination whether to indict or not to indict.  If there are no indictments, that will end the matter. The special counsel may issue a report summarizing the results of his investigation, but many experts believe that such reports are improper, since the subjects of the investigation do not have the right to present exculpatory evidence to the grand jury, which typically hears only one side of the case. Beyond any report, there will also be selective leaks, such as the many that have already occurred.  Leaks, too, tend to be one-sided and agenda driven.

A public non-partisan commission investigation, or even one conducted by partisans in Congress, would be open for the most part.  They would hear all sides of the story, and the public would be able to judge for itself whether there was improper collusion.  A commission or Congressional committee could also recommend changes in the law for the future.

The American people need to know precisely what the Russians tried to do and did – and what, if anything, the Trump campaign knew and did.  These issues go beyond a cops-and-robber whodunit. They involve the very essence of our democracy.

It is quite refreshing to read the writings of a level-headed Liberal for a change.

All average Americans, like you and me, see on Liberal-produced television newscasts or read in Liberal-written newspapers or magazines, are attacks on President Trump, which feature all of the common sense and objective level-headedness of Bobcat Goldthwait.

As I have noted numerous times in the last seven months, Modern American Liberals are throwing an unending National Temper Tantrum over the loss of Hillary Clinton to American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election.

The other factor, besides this ongoing temper tantrum, which has led to the Liberals proclaiming criminal activity on behalf of President Trump and his son when there is none, is the fact that Liberals lead their lives in a state of perpetual confusion.

Liberals believe that

Rachel Dozeal is black….

Elizabeth Warren is an American Indian.

Al Sharpton is a Reverend.

Al Gore is a scientist.

George Stephanopoulos is a journalist.

Bernie Sanders is presidential.

Barack Hussein Obama is honest.

And, somehow, someway, if they could get rid of Trump, Hillary Clinton would be given the Presidency.

Heck. Hillary’s husband, Bubba, doesn’t even know what the definition of “is”, is.

The good news is that while the Democrat Party, their Propaganda Arm, the MSM, and their Social Media Operatives continue to sound like Jan Brady, screaming

Russia! Russia! Russia!

…their whining is falling on deaf ears.

Per Hannity.com

A new poll released by left-leaning Bloomberg proves what most Americans have been saying for months; the nation is facing some big problems, and the Russia-Trump conspiracy theory isn’t one of them.

The survey, conducted last week and released on Tuesday, shows that just 6% of American voters think allegations of Russian collusion in the 2016 general election is a major issue facing the nation.

Individuals were asked “Which of the following do you see as the most important issue facing the nation right now?” Healthcare reform was at the top of the list with 35% of Americans seeing at is the largest problem in the US, followed by unemployment at 13%; terrorism at 11%; and immigration at 10%.

Near the bottom was the “Relationship with Russia” with just 6%.

The poll flies in the face of non-stop media coverage of the Russian-Trump witch hunt that has dominated headlines for over a year.

The survey also highlighted other positive development for the Trump administration, mostly regarding the President’s performance on jobs and the economy.

“The latest Bloomberg National Poll shows 58 percent of Americans believe they’re moving closer to realizing their own career and financial aspirations, tied for the highest recorded in the poll since the question was first asked in February 2013,” said the report.

Just like adults engaging in a conversation tune out a loud, bratty child who keeps trying to interrupt them to call attention to themselves, so are average Americans tuning out those intent on pushing the “Trump/Russia Collusion Fake News Fairy Tale”.

Average Americans are more concerned about adult matters, like feeding our families, keeping or finding jobs, the future of our children and grandchildren…

and MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

New Poll: 2/3rds of Americans Think That the Main Stream Media is full of Sh…Err…”Fake News”.

May 26, 2017

Russia-Russia-NRD-600-a

America’s Main Stream Media realized shortly after the American People elected Donald J. Trump as our 45th President that in order to  have access to President Trump and to be able to file news reports covering the actions that he is going to take as President, they are going to have to accurately report what actually happens.

So, they decided instead, to write fictional stories and attempt to give them believability and gravitas by claiming to have received the information for their stories from “anonymous sources”.

At the rate that these stories are being debunked, most Americans have accurately surmised that the MSM’s “anonymous sources” are the voices inside their own over-sized heads.

Foxnews.com reports that

Nearly two-thirds of Americans think the mainstream press is full of “fake news,” according to the latest Harvard-Harris poll.

65 percent of voters believe there is a significant amount of fake news in the mainstream media, and the sentiment is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.

80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats reflected this distrust of the media.

84 percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.

The Harvard-Harris online survey of 2,006 registered voters was conducted between May 17 and May 20.

On “The Fox News Specialists,” Eric Bolling said the media had a particularly bad week last week, with The Washington Post and The New York Times publishing negative stories about President Trump that proved to be “duds.”

“Two publications that people really rely on to have real news and real researched news and journalistic standards blew it last week badly,” Bolling said.

Rob O’Neill lamented that the media has forgotten the importance of honesty, and too many journalists are now reporting on what’s going to advance their personal agendas.

Bolling agreed, and added that many of these anti-Trump stories cite unnamed sources.

“They’re undermining their own credibility,” Bolling said. “If you have a source, name your source. Or don’t run with it.”

During his nationally-syndicated radio Program yesterday, Rush Limbaugh hit the proverbial nail on the head when he said,

I mean, the media is conducting a political assassination. It’s beyond a coup, folks. I mean, what’s going on is beyond a coup. And the leak story has now taken on new levels here that — like the U.K. prime minister, Theresa May, is gonna lecture Trump in a meeting today for what the New York Times is leaking about details of the bombing in Manchester, as though Trump has anything to say about what ends up in the New York Times.

But apparently U.S. intelligence sources leaked whatever they knew to British media and other media, and pictures of the bomb, remnants of the bomb and so forth appeared. The U.K. prime minister is very, very, very upset and is gonna call Trump on the carpet for allowing this and making this happen. Does she not know? Does she really not know that Trump has nothing to say over what’s in the New York Times? I go through the news, folks, it is surreal.

…They are currently engaged, the Drive-Bys are engaged — I think we just need to be honest. Some people are calling it a coup. I think we’re witnessing a political assassination that is being conducted by the media and of course joined by the Democrat Party and other leftists around the world.

Every day, every day, four o’clock to 5:30 in the afternoon, there is a new blockbuster, supposed blockbuster that shows up in either the New York Times or the Washington Post. And if you read the entire story, you will find that the details suggested by the headline and the early reporting in the story actually cannot be backed up! It’s the most amazing thing.

I’ve got a break coming up. I’ll give you an example of this that happened just yesterday. It’s over the top. There’s an allegation about Trump and the Russians or whatever, I forget what it is specifically here. At the end of the story, they basically say, “But we can’t confirm any of this. Nobody has any solid evidence to confirm.” Well, then why do the story in the first place? Whatever this is, it is not journalism. And that is what I think is gnawing at you.

This isn’t journalism. It’s all happening under the guise of journalism, under the pretext that it’s journalism and reporting of news, but it isn’t. This is not journalism. This is political and character assassination. Now, it always happens to Republicans. It’s usually much more subtle and not nearly as regular and intense. But Trump has changed the game to the point now that’s all it is, all day, every day. There is no break from it. It never ends.

The Main Stream Media has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President-elect Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own hurt feelings after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

I can remember my late Daddy (Southern colloquialism for male parental unit) bring home the National Enquirer, the Star, and even the Weekly World News from the grocery store , to read with his morning coffee.

Compared to the anonymous source-driven lies being peddled by the Main Stream Media about our 45th President, The Weekly World News’ legendary stores about “Batboy”, in retrospect, now seem like Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalism.

The good news, as shown by the poll in the above article, is that the majority of Americas are now buying the B.S. that the MSM is selling.

President-elect Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

The problem is the Main Stream Media is still having a conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point insanity) over the election of Donald J. Trump as the next President by us rubes here in Flyover Country.

The Main Stream Media not only has lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also have to face the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who treats them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump is speaking, only to find out that they have been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he is trying to forward that day.

Or, refusing to play nice with them when they slander him.

Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.

And, quite frankly, they don’t like it one bit.

That is why they continue in this poorly-received quest to try to bring down Trump.

Even if no one is watching, listening, reading, or believing them.

Until He Comes,

Of Special Counsels, Sore Losers, and a Purposefully-Divided Nation

May 18, 2017

Swamp-Creature-600-IF-a

As you all know by now, a Special Counsel has been appointed to investigate whether there was any collusion between President Donald J. Trump, his Campaign Staff, and the Government of Russia.

CBS News filed the following report when the story broke yesterday…

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel to oversee the previously confirmed FBI investigation of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election and related matters.

“I have determined that a Special Counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome,” Rosenstein said in a statement. 

What you need to know about appointing a special prosecutor to investigate Trump

The letter announcing the appointment reads that Mueller is authorized to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and…any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”  

The White House issued a short statement Wednesday night saying the investigation by special counsel appointed to investigate President Trump’s administration and Russian meddling in the 2016 election will “confirm what we already know.”   

The appointment comes as numerous Democratic lawmakers have called for a special counsel, colloquially known as a special prosecutor. Such calls increased in recent days after Mr. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. On Tuesday, it was revealed the Comey had written a memo alleging that Mr. Trump had asked him to back off from investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The memo allegedly says that the president said, in a private conversation with Comey at the White House, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.” 

Rosenstein’s letter announcing the appointment of Mueller says, “If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the special counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters.”

CBS News’ Paula Reid reports that the FBI investigators who are currently on this case may stay on the case. Mueller will have discretion on who he uses in his probe.  

Democrats on Capitol hill are embracing this as a victory, and many of them, along with a small number of Republicans have been calling for a special prosecutor. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, said in a statement that Mueller’s appointment is “a good first step” and said that “there’s no better person who could be asked to perform this function. He is respected, he is talented and he has the knowledge and ability to do the right thing.” 

Mueller was appointed FBI director in 2001 and served in the position until 2013. FBI directors are appointed to ten-year terms, but President Barack Obama added two years to his tenure.

A career prosecutor and veteran of the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War, Mueller is a widely respected figure in Washington. He had been in private practice since 2014 at Wilmer-Hale, a Washington, D.C.-based law firm known for securities enforcement and white collar work. 

Okay. Please allow me to ask the question on everyone’s minds….

If Special Counsel Mueller completes his investigation and finds absolutely no collusion occurred between the Trump Campaign and the Russian Government, what will the Democratic Elite, the Vichy Republicans, the Main Stream Media, and the Professional and Amateur Political Pundits do then?

Will they proclaim Mueller to be a “sell-out”?

Will they say that he just didn’t look hard enough?

Will they demand a second investigation?

Will they demand an investigation of Melania?

Will they demand an investigation of Barron?

Will they hit up Uncle George Soros for more money to pay “rent-a-protestors” to protest against Trump some more?

Will they all retreat to their “safe spaces”?

Will all the Mom’s Basement-Dwelling Internet Trolls implode from consuming too much Orange Soda and Cheetos to assuage their grief?

And, finally, will the Democratic Elite and the Vichy Republicans go on the Main Stream Media and apologize to us average Americans here in the Heartland who used our precious time to go vote Donald J. Trump into the Oval Office, giving him a mandate to “drain the swamp”?

Well…fat chance of that happening.

You see, boys and girls, from the moment that it was announced that the “Interloper” Donald J. Trump, has “stolen” he election from “the Chosen One”, Hillary Clinton, America’s Liberals determined that they had to go into an all-out offensive to run Trump out of office, saving their entitlement programs and continuing the mission which Obama and his Administration started: that of turning the “Shining City Upon the Hill” into just another country.

The Democrats, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and West Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, effectively divorced themselves from the people whom they claimed in every previous election cycle to “love”…Average Working Class Americans.

To put it in Marital Terms, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party are no longer “evenly yoked”.

The Democrats became the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.

The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.

Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, boys and girls?

The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we have suffered under for the last 8 years on November 8th.

While the French long ago used “Madame Guillotine” to make a drastic change in their government, Americans used voting booths.

Now, it’s time to come together as a nation, not to purposefully further the division between us.

America has no need for a “Shadow Government”, run by Former President Barack Hussein Obama. We do not need a Former Nazi Sympathizer and Stool Pigeon financing protests and parades designed to undermine the president and to undo the votes which average Americans cast on November 8th.

That kind of garbage is designed to further divide us as a nation.

It is the same strategy which Vladimir Lenin used to engineer the Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1917 which replaced the Russian Monarchy with Marxism, which only succeeded in making the new Ruling Class, the Politburo, richer, and the working class, the Proletariat, poorer.

Norman Matoon Thomas (1884-1968) was a six-time Presidential Candidate  representing the Socialist Party of America.  In a campaign interview in 1948, he said the following:

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

Could Mr. Thomas have been right?

I pray that he greatly underestimated the American People.

While Russian Jets Buzz Alaskan Coast, Dems’ Trump/Russia Collusion Flies Into the Sunset

April 22, 2017

a-russian-tu-95-bomber-photographed-from-a-royal-air-force-plane-off-the-coast-of-britain-in-october-2014-1120x600

My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes. – President Ronald Reagan

CNN.com reported yesterday that

US defense officials are calling recent sightings of Russian bombers off the Alaskan coast “nothing out of the ordinary” — itself an indication that both nations are toeing the line between routine military posturing and escalating provocation. On Monday, US F-22 fighter jets intercepted two Russian bombers in international airspace 100 miles from Kodiak Island, Alaska. A US military official called the interaction “safe and professional.”

Less than 24 hours later, a US surveillance aircraft responded to two Russian bombers that were spotted in the same area, this time flying 41 miles off Alaska.

The Russian aircraft did not enter US airspace in either instance and US defense officials say there was nothing unusual or confrontational about the Russians’ conduct. The US itself has carried out similar flights along both the Chinese and Russian coasts.

Moscow, for its part, said it “regularly carries out patrol missions above the neutral waters of the Arctic, the Atlantic, the Black Sea and the Pacific Ocean.”

“All such missions are carried out in strict compliance with international regulations and with respect to national borders,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a written statement.

But this week’s encounter plays into a larger effort by Russian President Vladimir Putin “to prove Russia is back in the game,” according to Howard Stoffer, a former State Department staffer.

“This kind of cat-and-mouse stuff has been going on for a while now,” Stoffer told CNN, adding that Putin “is trying to put the US on notice that the Russians are everywhere and are back to expanding the limits of expanding their military power.”

The Viktor Leonov, a Russian spy ship, has also been spotted near the US coastline twice in recent months.

Rising tensions between US and Russia are a far cry from President Donald Trump’s optimistic campaign rhetoric of hopes for a collaborative relationship. As Trump himself said earlier this month, relations between the former Cold War foes “may be at an all-time low.”

The two nations have clashed over deeply rooted strategic differences this month.

Do you remember the great movie, “The Hunt for Red October”, starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin (before he became a total jerk and, in the process, unwatchable)?

Connery plays Captain Marko Ramius, a Russian Submarine Captain who commandeers The Red October, a nearly silent nuclear sub for the purpose of surrendering it to the United States. At on point, he gets on the com, and tells his unsuspecting crew:

“Once more, we play our dangerous game, a game of chess against our old adversary, the American Navy. For forty years, your fathers before you and your older brothers played this game and played it well. But today the game is different. We have the advantage.”

The Administration is right. What is happening off the coast of Alaska is a dangerous game, which has been going on for quite a while.

Speaking of dangerous games…is it just me, or have y’all noticed that the Modern American Liberal Propaganda Machine has backed off of the erroneous claim that the Russians were somehow, someway, responsible for the loss of Hillary Clinton to Donald J. Trump on November 8th, 2016?

The strategy of that whole campaign by the Democrats and their operatives in both the Main Stream Media and the Social Media, ironically enough, sprang from the philosophy of the Third Reich’s Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, who infamously said that

  • If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it.

  • If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

  • If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth.

This strategy was ironic because one of the ignorant attacks, which is still being put out there by Liberals, equates Trump to Adolf Hitler, the Leader of Germany’s Third Reich.

It’s not surprising that Liberals continue to fail.

Liberals underestimate the American People.

The Trump/Russian Collusion Story has fallen on deaf ears.

Here’s why:

  • Did the Democrats actually expect average Americans to believe that the 63 million of us who voted for Donald J., Trump were somehow made to do so by the Russians?
  • Trump carried 31 out of 50 states. Those weren’t Russians out there voting in America’s Heartland.
  • Average Americans, disgusted with the bias of the Main Stream Media, used the Social Media to spread the truth about the Democrats and their Presidential Candidate. I didn’t see any Russians showing their cat videos or influencing Americans as to how to vote on Facebook.
  • It wasn’t a Russian who called us all “Deplorables”. It was the “The Queen of Mean”, Hillary Clinton herself.

And, my final and most important bullet point…

  • Average Americans, from the Rust Belt to the Bible Belt, were familiar with Mrs. Clinton. They knew who she was and what she was. They knew that she would walk 20 miles across the scorching desert sand to tell a lie rather than step across on of Obama’s infamous Red Lines and tell the truth. Hillary has no one to blame but herself for losing the Presidency to Donald J. Trump.

Our Founding Fathers envisioned a Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.

Donald J. Trump is a prime example of this.

What Obama, Clinton, Schumer, and all of the Liberals out there still crying in their Pepsi Product of choice over watching the machinations of a Constitutional Republic in action do not want to admit, is that the Electoral Collage was put in place to prevent what they are still trying to accomplish by any means necessary: overthrowing an election in which Americans who living in the Heartland of our nation defeated a Presidential Candidate running on the favored Political Ideology of isolated Metropolitan Areas with dense populations.

The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we have suffered under for the last 8 years on November 8th.

All these displaced tyrants are accomplishing with their unsubstantiated claims against President Trump, their outlandish political machinations, and their overwhelming hypocrisy is to make average Americans, who rejected their political ideology en masse on November 8th, even madder at them, if that is possible.

The lesson which they should have learned through their defeat on November 8th is not to underestimate the American People.

You can not buy average Americans voters nor our respect.

They are not for sale.

It is time for the Leaders and MSM Minions of the Democratic Party to suck it up and move on.

Americans have had enough of their National Temper Tantrum and boundless hypocrisy.

In the cat and mouse game which they have been playing with the American People, they have now become the mouse.

Wag The Dog II: Cybernetic Boogaloo: Obama Administration Planning Cyber War With Russia

October 15, 2016

Shortly before an election, a spin-doctor and a Hollywood producer join efforts to fabricate a war in order to cover up a presidential sex scandal. – “Wag The Dog” (1997) starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro

NBCNews.com reports that

The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.

Current and former officials with direct knowledge of the situation say the CIA has been asked to deliver options to the White House for a wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.

The sources did not elaborate on the exact measures the CIA was considering, but said the agency had already begun opening cyber doors, selecting targets and making other preparations for an operation. Former intelligence officers told NBC News that the agency had gathered reams of documents that could expose unsavory tactics by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Vice President Joe Biden told “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd on Friday that “we’re sending a message” to Putin and that “it will be at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact.”

When asked if the American public will know a message was sent, the vice president replied, “Hope not.”

Retired Admiral James Stavridis told NBC News’ Cynthia McFadden that the U.S. should attack Russia’s ability to censor its internal internet traffic and expose the financial dealings of Putin and his associates.

“It’s well known that there’s great deal of offshore money moved outside of Russia from oligarchs,” he said. “It would be very embarrassing if that was revealed, and that would be a proportional response to what we’ve seen” in Russia’s alleged hacks and leaks targeting U.S. public opinion.

Sean Kanuck, who was until this spring the senior U.S. intelligence official responsible for analyzing Russian cyber capabilities, said not mounting a response would carry a cost.

“If you publicly accuse someone,” he said, “and don’t follow it up with a responsive action, that may weaken the credible threat of your response capability.”

President Obama will ultimately have to decide whether he will authorize a CIA operation. Officials told NBC News that for now there are divisions at the top of the administration about whether to proceed.

Two former CIA officers who worked on Russia told NBC News that there is a long history of the White House asking the CIA to come up with options for covert action against Russia, including cyber options — only to abandon the idea.

“We’ve always hesitated to use a lot of stuff we’ve had, but that’s a political decision,” one former officer said. “If someone has decided, `We’ve had enough of the Russians,’ there is a lot we can do. Step one is to remind them that two can play at this game and we have a lot of stuff. Step two, if you are looking to mess with their networks, we can do that, but then the issue becomes, they can do worse things to us in other places.”

A second former officer, who helped run intelligence operations against Russia, said he was asked several times in recent years to work on covert action plans, but “none of the options were particularly good, nor did we think that any of them would be particularly effective,” he said.

Putin is almost beyond embarrassing, he said, and anything the U.S. can do against, for example, Russian bank accounts, the Russian can do in response.

“Do you want to have Barack Obama bouncing checks?” he asked.

Former CIA deputy director Michael Morell expressed skepticism that the U.S. would go so far as to attack Russian networks.

“Physical attacks on networks is not something the U.S. wants to do because we don’t want to set a precedent for other countries to do it as well, including against us,” he said. “My own view is that our response shouldn’t be covert — it should overt, for everybody to see.”

The Obama administration is debating just that question, officials say — whether to respond to Russia via cyber means, or with traditional measures such as sanctions.

The CIA’s cyber operation is being prepared by a team within the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence, documents indicate. According to officials, the team has a staff of hundreds and a budget in the hundreds of millions, they say.

The covert action plan is designed to protect the U.S. election system and insure that Russian hackers can’t interfere with the November vote, officials say. Another goal is to send a message to Russia that it has crossed a line, officials say.

While the National Security Agency is the center for American digital spying, the CIA is the lead agency for covert action and has its own cyber capabilities. It sometimes brings in the NSA and the Pentagon to help, officials say.

CNN clarifies NBC’s report…

There is mounting evidence that the Russian government is supplying WikiLeaks with hacked emails pertaining to the US presidential election, US officials familiar with the investigation have told CNN.As WikiLeaks continues to publish emails belonging to Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, US officials told CNN that there is growing evidence that Russia is using the organization as a delivery vehicle for the messages and other stolen information.
 
The methods of the disclosures “suggest Moscow is at least providing the information or is possibly directly responsible for the leaks,” one US official said.
US intelligence officials are still investigating the degree of connection between Russia and WikiLeaks but they remain confident that Russia is behind the leaks themselves.
CNN attempted to reach WikiLeaks for comment but received no response. WikiLeaks’s founder, Julian Assange, has previously denied any connection to or cooperation with Russia.

Why would Obama and his administration intentionally be attempting to start a war with America’s greatest enemy less than a month out from the 2016 presidential election?

As the article states, written by Liberals to assure Liberals of how noble the Administration’s motive is, they are doing this to ensure that Russia does not “interfere” with our election process.

Which is an ironic statement, when you consider that fraud is already being discovered being committed by Democrat operatives in election precincts across America, and the election is not even here, yet.

I believe that the Administration’s excuse is a bunch of hooey.

As wild as this may sound to some of you, I believe it there are two reasons why President Barack Obama and his administration want to provoke Russia.

First, this is simply retaliation for the releasing of these emails, which the Main Stream Media is avoiding covering, which show corruption and collusion between President Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, John Podesta, and the entire Obama Administration. If covered properly by the Main Stream Media, it would ensure that Donald J. Trump would be the next president of the United States of America.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party cannot allow the content of these emails to be seen by average Americans, including those who voted for the Democratic Party for decades, or their political party will vanish from the face of the Earth.

The political corruption outlined in these emails is of a magnitude not seen on this Earth since the old Soviet Union.

It is ironic that Russia has discovered the hidden Corruption of the ruling party of our government when it was the immense corruption of their own ruling party which brought down the Empire of the Soviet Union.

The second reason that I believe that this is happening now, is because the Democratic Party and Barack Hussein Obama are hedging their bets. They know that Hillary Rodham Clinton is in poor health and is weighted down by all of her own scandals. These reasons, along with the fact that she is drawing crowds that will not even fill up a high school gymnasium, are signs that she will most likely lose to Donald J. Trump on November 8th and will not be elected president of the United States of America.

If war is declared, Obama might move to suspend the election, even though that would be unconstitutional.

A wild thought I know, but, since when has that ever stopped him?

As Rush Limbaugh said, when there was speculation that Obama might suspend the 2012 Presidential Election because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy,

The question thus arises, can the president wave a magic wand and move the election?  What do you think, Snerdley?  Why not?  He doesn’t have the constitutional mandate.  He didn’t have the constitutional mandate for Obamacare, either.  He didn’t have the constitutional mandate to award amnesty to the kids of a million illegals, but he did it. Now, the Constitution is very clear on when presidential elections are, and to change that, you would have to amend the Constitution, and there isn’t time.  That’s not the question.  The question is, would that stop a statist like Obama?  Let me ask you this.  I want you all to just see if you can, off the top of your head, at any time in American history has anything canceled an election?  One time.  And it was a local election, and it happened on September 11th, 2001, in New York City.  Local New York City elections were suspended because of 9/11.  Those elections were not federally Constitutionally mandated. 

We had every election on schedule, on time in the Civil War, during World War I, during World War II. There hasn’t been a time.  But the question is, does that matter?  If The One wants to change the election — can you see him going on TV — I mean, after all, look who’s gonna be affected here.

…Now, of course by law, Obama cannot move Election Day. At least according to Section 7, Chapter 1, Title 2 of the US Code. I’ll read that to you: “The Tuesday next after the first Monday in November in every even-numbered year is established as the day for the election in each of the states and territories of the United States of representatives and delegates to the Congress commencing on the third day of January next thereafter.”

So he can’t move it. It’s in the Constitution; it’s in the United States Code. He cannot move the election. But it has not stopped him. The law has not stopped him in other things.

As the brilliant political cartoon by the talented A.F.Branco shows, the Main Stream Media is playing the role of the little Dutch Boy, who stuck his finger in the dam to keep his town from flooding.

However,, once again, thanks to the “New Media” and its “Citizen Reporters”, Americans are finding out the depth of Obama and Clinton’s corruption and collusion, which the DOJ and the FBI purposefully kept hidden from the American People.

If the “dam” holding back the full story contained in those e-mails busts wide open, the resulting flood of information would mean the end of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Aspirations and, ultimately, the end of the Democratic Party, itself.

And, all those involved, including President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) cannot allow that to happen…at any cost.

Until He Comes,
