Hypocrite Adam Schiff Rages at Steve Bannon

February 16, 2018

Executive Privilege – a claim by the President or another high official of the executive branch that he/she need not answer a request (including a subpena issued by a court or Congress) for confidential government or personal communications, on the ground that such revelations would hamper effective governmental operations and decision-making. The rationale is that such a demand would violate the principle of separation of powers among the executive, legislative and judicial branches. – legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com

FoxNews.com reports that

House Democrats said Thursday they are looking at initiating contempt proceedings against former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, complaining that he cited “executive privilege” to brush off a host of questions during a tense closed-door interview with the House Intelligence Committee.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told reporters that Bannon stonewalled “almost all of the questions,” with the exception of a series of 25 scripted questions from the White House — all of which he answered “no.” Schiff added that Bannon said he had been instructed to invoke executive privilege by the White House.

“That claim of executive privilege is breathtaking and insupportable and, indeed at times, it was laughable,” Schiff said.

Schiff said that Democrats will push for initiating contempt charges against Bannon, a move that would require support from Republicans on the committee. Schiff said Republicans appeared supportive and will confer with their leadership on the next step.

“He’s brought our committee together,” he said.

Executive Privilege…Executive Privilege…where have I heard those words before?

Oh, yeah. Now, I remember.

From ABC News, June 20, 2012

President Obama today invoked executive privilege to shield documents related to the “Fast and Furious” gun walking scandal from a congressional investigation, marking the first time his administration has invoked the right and the 25th time it’s been used since 1980. In response, a House committee voted Wednesday along party lines to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. The White House dismissed the proceedings as “political theater.”

Louis Fisher, author of “Politics of Executive Privilege,” questioned the legitimacy of the administration’s claim to executive privilege.

“If it had been legitimate, I think they could have raised it a year ago,” Fisher said. “It doesn’t look good to work with a committee for more than a year and then to pop out that this is executive privilege.”

The use of executive privilege to protect internal discussions and deliberations can be traced back to George Washington. However, it was the Supreme Court’s 1974 ruling in the Nixon Watergate scandal that established executive privilege as a legal right and set forth its appropriate uses. Since Nixon, executive privilege has been used in every administration, although some presidents invoked the power more frequently than others.

I swear, the Modern Democratic Party are nothing but a bunch of whining hypocrites.

The Congressman is having a “Schiff-Fit” because former Trump Administration Member Steve Bannon has claimed Executive Privilege in response to questions designed to ruin both him and President Trump…questions based on a Political Dog and Pony Show designed to try to remove our Constitutionally-elected President from office because he is not a Professional Politician and he is trying to actually fulfill his Campaign Promises.

Obama covering his as…err…backside from his part in the Fast and Furious scandal by provoking “Executive Privilege” to keep from being impeached did not bother the Democrats in Congress in 2012, I’m sure.

And, gosh. Do you know who one of those members of Congress on the Democratic Side who supported President Obama in 2012 during the Fast and Furious Investigation and his declaring “Executive Privilege” was?

I’ll give you 3 guesses. And, the first two don’t count.

Aww…you guessed.

From Yahoo News, June 27, 2012

Schiff, a leading advocate against holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress on Thursday, replied “absolutely” when The Daily Caller asked him at a Wednesday press conference if “government misconduct” took place at anytime during the scandal.

…So, yes, we all acknowledge there are legitimate origins to this investigation but I think it has been untethered from that legitimate origin.”

“Untethered” meaning that Obama cut the rope which was going to tie him into the “misconduct” by claiming “Executive Privilege”.

Let’s face it, gentle reader. This whole Trump/Russia Collusion Fairy Tale has been nothing but an act of vengeance perpetrated by the Democratic Party, their minions in Congress, and their Deep State Operatives in the DOJ and FBI placed in motion to undo the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Because, Lord knows, the Far left Democratic Party can’t have a Republican President actually succeed in fulfilling his Campaign Promises.

That would mean that the Professional Politicians on Capitol Hill would actually have to work with President Trump on behalf of Americans, instead of themselves, to help make American Great Again.

And. Lord knows…we can’t have that. That would be too much like “right” (as we say in Dixie).

What a bunch of self-righteous hypocrites.

Susan Rice E-mail Proves Obama’s Involvement With DOJ/FBI During “CollusionGate”

February 13, 2018

untitled (220).png

“This story is not Trump and the Russians.  I’m sorry to be so repetitive.  The story is the surveillance that the Obama administration was engaging in of Trump and who knows who else.  Now, you say, “Rush, this is awfully hard to believe.”  No, it isn’t.  This is my point about liberals and who they are.  They weaponized the IRS against conservatives, didn’t they?  They most certainly did.

They have done any number of things, take over police departments on the basis that they’re racist after things like what happened in Ferguson or in Baltimore.  The idea that people who are closely associated with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn would not surveil their enemies. It’s much easier to believe that it would happen.  This is why liberals want power.  This is the kind of thing they want to be able to do with it. ” – Rush Limbaugh April 3, 2017 

As these past several months have shown, the Maha Rushie was right…again.

FoxNews.com reports that

Ex-national security adviser Susan Rice sent an “unusual email” to herself the day President Trump was sworn into office documenting former President Barack Obama’s guidance at a high-level meeting about how law enforcement should investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race, two Republican senators said Monday. 

According to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham, the partially unclassified email was sent by Rice on Jan. 20, 2017 — and appears to document a Jan. 5 meeting that included Obama, then-FBI Director James Comey, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, then-Vice President Joe Biden and Rice. 

In the email, Obama’s national security adviser wrote: “President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’ The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.” 

The email also appears to reflect Obama’s guidance on sharing sensitive information with both the Russians and the incoming administration. 

Rice wrote that Obama said “he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.”

She added, “The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team.  Comey said he would.”

Grassley, R-Iowa, and Graham, R-S.C., released the email Monday. They said they uncovered it as part of their oversight of the FBI and the Department of Justice, and claimed it raises new questions. 

“It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation,” they wrote in a letter to Rice. 

They added: “In addition, despite your claim that President Obama repeatedly told Mr. Comey to proceed ‘by the book,’ substantial questions have arisen about whether officials at the FBI, as well as at the Justice Department and the State Department, actually did proceed ‘by the book.’” 

For those of you who have forgotten exactly who Dr. Susan Rice is, here are some highlights of her curriculum vitae, courtesy of discoverthenetworks.org

  • Foreign-policy aide to Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis in 1988

  • Served on the National Security Council for the Clinton administration

  • Former senior fellow at the Brookings Institution

  • Foreign-policy advisor to Democratic candidate John Kerry during the 2004 presidential campaign

  • Was nominated in 2008 by President-elect Barack Obama to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations

  • Infamously claimed, falsely, that the deadly 9/11/12 terrorist attack against an American diplomatic mission in Benghazi was not a premeditated assault, but rather a “spontaneous reaction” to “a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world”

  • Was appointed as President Obama’s top national security adviser in 2013

For any American who has been paying attention, the revelation of Obama’s use of the FBI and the Department of Justice in the surveillance and attempted sabotaging of Trump and his Campaign Staff is not shocking at all.

It is simply a continuation of a pattern of behavior associated with the political ideology of the Former President and his Administration.

When Barack Hussein Obama assumed the position of President of the United States, the Far Left became empowered. Obama’s handlers saw the opportunity to “radically change” America into a Democratic Socialist Republic. You know, the kind of government that is currently failing over in Europe.

Every piece of legislation that Barack Hussein Obama tried to get passed, was designed to either overtly or covertly limit our freedom.

Boys and Girls, it was not just “Chicago-style Politics” that motivated Obama to spy on the Trump Campaign and to attempt to influence the 2016 Presidential Election. It was his predilection toward Government-sponsored FASCISM.

My late father was one of thousands of brave young American men, who landed on the beaches of Normandy , France on June 6, 1944, in the military operation which broke the backs of the Nazis, leading to the end of World War II, now known as D-Day.

World War II was a war against Fascism.

What is Fascism? Per merriam-webster.com, it is a

political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America has been fighting a new War Against Fascism for some time now.

It has not been a war fought with guns and bullets, But instead with State Referendums, Congressional votes, Executive Orders, Law Suits, Judicial Activism and Royal Edicts from the Far Left and their leaders like the Former King Barack The First.

It’s not our Brightest and Best who were wounded on this field of battle, but rather, it was our Constitutional Freedoms which were attacked, pierced by the arrows of Socialism, Political Correctness, and an inexcusable abuse of Executive Power in Washington, DC.

By now, there is someone out there among you saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracka’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any Fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that all this garbage that happened during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama was “the will of the people”. In order to prove their claim, they will site Democratically stacked push polls from those years or place Hollywood Liberals in front of a camera, so they can mindlessly pontificate and tell us “common folk” that we should  “resist” against a Constitutionally elected President of the United States of America.

If there is “no Fascism”, what do you call Obama’s suggestions and actions to suppress the First Amendment Rights to Free Speech of  Americans, who disagreed with the Liberal “Politically Correct” Point of View, up to and including the surveillance of, interference with, and subsequent purposeful “unmasking ” of the Trump Campaign Staff and the use of the DOJ and the FBI as Political Weapons against an American Citizen?

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.

Until He Comes,

New Strzok/Page Texts Prove That Obama Knew About The Deep State Operationts to Stop Trump

February 8, 2018

17190867_1335145456524145_4213167423742818202_n (1)

Early in the morning of June 17, 1972, several burglars were arrested inside the office of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), located in the Watergate building in Washington, D.C. This was no ordinary robbery: The prowlers were connected to President Richard Nixon’s reelection campaign, and they had been caught while attempting to wiretap phones and steal secret documents. While historians are not sure whether Nixon knew about the Watergate espionage operation before it happened, he took steps to cover it up afterwards, raising “hush money” for the burglars, trying to stop the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from investigating the crime, destroying evidence and firing uncooperative staff members. In August 1974, after his role in the Watergate conspiracy had finally come to light, the president resigned. His successor, Gerald Ford, immediately pardoned Nixon for all the crimes he “committed or may have committed” while in office. Although Nixon was never prosecuted, the Watergate scandal changed American politics forever, leading many Americans to question their leadership and think more critically about the presidency. (courtesy of www.history.com)

Compared to what we now know about Barack Hussein Obama, Richard Milhous Nixon was a saint.

FoxNews.com reports that…

Newly released text messages between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page saying Barack Obama wanted to “know everything” the FBI was “doing” could raise questions about the former president’s 2016 statement that he was not involved in discussing pending probes.

The texts were part of a batch released by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., along with majority staff from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Strzok and Page, who worked for a short period of time on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, have been in the spotlight ever since a slew of anti-Trump messages between them surfaced last year.

In the new text message chain from Sept. 2, 2016, Page mentioned Obama in the context of a briefing for then-FBI director James Comey.

“Checkout my 9:30 mtg on the 7th,” Strzok texted Page.

“I can tell you why you’re having that meeting. It’s not what you think,” Page responded.

“TPs [talking points] for D [Comey]?” Strzok asked.

“Yes, bc potus wants to know everything we are doing,” Page said.

The message suggested that Obama would meet Comey regarding an FBI matter.

Yet, on April 10, 2016, Obama told Fox News’ Chris Wallace that he did not have any involvement in ongoing FBI investigations.

“I do not talk to the attorney general about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations,” Obama said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department, or the FBI, not just in this case, but in any case.”

It’s unclear from the texts what exactly Strzok and Page were referring to with the apparent talking points for Comey. According to the Senate report, the text raises questions about Obama’s involvement in the Clinton email investigation.

The conversation took place during an apparent lull in the Clinton email investigation, though it wasn’t necessarily closed, either. In July 2016, Comey announced that Clinton was “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information on her private server but would face no charges. In late October, Comey announced that he would revisit the Clinton investigation.

The Strzok-Page conversation also occurred just days before Obama met with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G-20 summit, where he confronted him about cyber concerns amid reports and intelligence surfacing that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential campaign.

A former deputy assistant to Obama, Colin Kahl, highlighted on Twitter a Daily Beast reporter who floated this meeting as relevant to that text exchange.

Also on Sept. 2, 2016, though, the FBI released a full transcript – with redactions – of its interview with Hillary Clinton as part of the email probe, along with a memo summarizing the bureau’s investigation of her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

After the mention of “potus,” Strzok alerted Page to “NYTimes.com breaking,” which could have been the report, “FBI Papers Offer Closer Look at Hillary Clinton Email Inquiry.

From the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America until today, the actions of the Former Occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue have caught my attention and concerned me.

Why?

Because as I have stated many times before, Obama would rather walk 5 miles to tell a lie than to stand completely still and tell the truth.

Do you remember when we found out that Obama had wire-tapped Trump and his Campaign Staff?

On March 5, 2017,, I wrote

The former Petulant President Pantywaist has set up his Command Headquarters for his “Shadow Government” just a few blocks away from the White House and has even moved his “right-hand Iranian” Valerie Jarrett, into the house with him and “Mooch”.

Scary? OH, HECK YEAH.

It is all beginning to resemble a Tom Clancy Novel.

You have a Former Nazi Sympathizer, now a Billionaire “Philanthropist”, funding Far Left Causes. Add to that a disgruntled Former President, desperately trying to ensure that his mission to turn the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth into a Third World Socialist Paradise is not derailed by the unexpected loss of his hand-picked predecessor to a “Citizen Statesman”.

Faced with the reality of a splintered Democratic Party, which has alienated its base by moving to the Extreme Far Left of the Political Spectrum, this Former President , while still in office, decided to spy on the one candidate who might actually have a chance to beat his own party’s lousy candidate in a fair Presidential Election, through the means of obtaining an order to wire tap his offices.

After that did not help and the Citizen Statesman became the President, the Former Petulant President Pantywaist, encouraged “rebellion”, as if the reality of a nation being torn asunder was some sort of “Star Wars” Movie, through the use of his “benefactor’s”(the Former Nazi Sympathizer) money in the funding of manufactured protests and a Media-Driven, Community -Organizing Assault, which includes the Former President’s own “Organizing For America” Website.

Not unlike the Bolsheviks of the Russian Revolution, this “rebellion”, with their willing accomplices in the Main Stream Media, launched a massive assault, through the dissemination of propaganda, manufactured protests, and Fake News, in order to somehow diminish the sitting President, in the hopes of regaining their lost power and continuing their mission, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.

Unfortunately for them, they have underestimated the power of the New Media and the resiliency of the average American, here in the Heartland, who stopped believing their lies some time ago.

And now, with the revelation that came out yesterday, that the Political Elite of both political parties knew of the specious wire tapping, this weakens the momentum of the Shadow Government’s Rebellion and strengthens the resolve of both the sitting President and the average Americans who voted him into office, against all odds.

At the time, little did I now exactly how deep (as in Deep State) Obama’s spying on Trump went.

What we are now looking at, is an attempt by a sitting President of the United States of America to interfere with our Constitutional Electoral Process, as if he were Hugo Chavez and this was Venezuela.

There is no way that the Democrats can spin their way out of this.

But, Lord knows, they are going to try.

AS Rush Limbaugh stated on his show yesterday, concerning the Fox News Video seen above,

…you will never see it on CNN. You won’t see it be read about it in the New York Times or Washington Post. It remains compartmentalized on our side of the media. But the bottom line is that Obama was well aware of the Hillary email investigation and was protecting her and went so far as to publicly claim she was innocent, which… You don’t need a memo to the DOJ and the FBI to exonerate her after you publicly say (impression), “She’s innocent.

“She wouldn’t… She — she served this country for so long, she wouldn’t possibly do anything to jeopardize it.” The message is thus sent, “She’s innocent. Don’t pursue this.” And that’s exactly what happened. But the real meaning here is that it’s Obama, the man behind the curtain. It’s Obama with the levers controlling all of this, and things that are happening now I am fully convinced have as their primary purpose to protect and to continue to enshroud Obama, to protect his legacy, his agenda, his presidency, his reputation, and to keep him away from any legal jeopardy.

I agree with Rush.

It’s past time to clean house at the DOJ and the FBI.

If AG Sessions is reluctant to do it, the President must find someone who is not.

Obama, who learned how to control people at the feet of the master. Puppet Master George Soros, will not willingly cut the strings tying him to his Deep State Operatives in the DOJ and FBI, it must be done by President Trump and his Attorney General.

It’s time to amputate this diseased limb of our Justice System and to stop a Former President, who evidently aspires to be a benevolent dictator, from covertly interfering with our nation’s future.

The Main Stream Media and Internet Trolls Lose Their Collective Hive-Minds as the FISA Memo is Made Public

February 3, 2018

maxresdefault

FoxNews.com reports that

The mainstream media didn’t get its way on Friday when the controversial memo detailing alleged government surveillance abuses was released.

But instead of focusing on the contents, the liberal media members who had reservations about the document’s release are harping on negative reactions to President Trump’s decision to make it public.

The House Intelligence Committee released the memo about alleged abuses involving FISA, or the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, dn Friday afternoon after news organizations such as The New York Times and The Washington Post criticized the decision to do so.

The polarizing memo had liberal media members howling that its release would pose a risk to national security less than 24 hours ago, but the same pundits are now calling it a “dud” and mocking conservatives for overhyping its content.

“It falls well short of what some Republicans promised: to cast doubt on the origins of the Russia investigation,” a prominent bullet point on The Times’ website said shortly after the release.

The home page of The Washington Post featured a trio of headlines that played down the content of the memo, “Ongoing battle between White House and FBI intensifies after memo’s release,” Sentence buried in GOP memo may undercut Trump efforts to discredit Russia probe,” and an opinion piece, “The White House’s laughable spin that releasing the memo is all about ‘transparency,’” were all prominently displayed. 

The Associated Press’ wire was packed with angry reaction to the memo and offered very little about what the document actually said. AP pieces about the memo led with lines including “Attorney General Jeff Sessions is defending his deputy in the face of criticism from the president,” “House Democrats are angry about the release of a classified GOP memo” and “The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee is challenging the accuracy of a memo.”

A giant headline across the HuffPost page simply stated, “Meh-morandum: This thing’s a dud!”

Former FBI Director James Comey blasted the “dishonest” and “misleading” memo, saying it “inexcusably exposed” classified investigations. Several news organizations used Comey’s reaction as their hook in stories playing down the memo,  with splashy headlines using the former FBI chief’s negative reaction. 

Meanwhile, reporters from both CNN and MSNBC have been accused on social media of misleading viewers regarding the content of the memo. NBC News’ Katy Tur “fixed” an inaccurate tweet after critics called her out, while CNN’s Jim Sciutto has been criticized for saying that Republicans first paid for the disputed Steele dossier. 

Others have picked on the way the memo was written. 

NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell said the language in the memo is “mischievous,” while Vox founder Ezra Klein said it read like a “Breitbart article.”

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued a statement ridiculing the media coverage of the memo, saying it deserved “Watergate-like media coverage.”

“Now that the memo is public, the media owe it to the American people to report this story fairly and truthfully,” he wrote. “We have witnessed over a year of an unparalleled, deliberate effort by the press to remove a president they despise, and it is time they are held accountable.”

The Vanguard of the Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media, weren’t the only ones acting as if there was nothing to the FISA Memo.

Liberals Trolls on Websites and Facebook spent the day avoiding addressing the revelations found within the 4-page document, deflecting challenges from Conservatives as if they were a goalie in the Stanley Cup.

Between the MSM and the Internet Trolls, the whole mess seemed like Placebo Day in a Hospital Psych Ward.

Does anyone else have the feeling that these “news reports” concerning the release of the FISA Memo were written days in advance?

That would explain how far off the MSM was in their criticism from what average Americans were experiencing while reading the memos.

Now, regarding those Internet Trolls losing their minds yesterday…

It’s amazing how websites are a reflection of our Political Reality.

Every website and Facebook Page, where there is political discussion, unless they are just Pro-one-way-or-the-other, puts out a plea for civil discourse in the discussions that happen between commenters on their site.

Unfortunately, though, that never seems to happen. And, why is that?

If you are an Internet – Surfing Political Junkie like me, at some time or another, you have no doubt run into an aggravating, bitter, whiney individual, commonly referred to as an “Internet Troll”.

In America, most Internet Trolls belong to the Liberal Political Ideology (whether they admit it, or not).

In our American culture today, the art of civil discourse has degenerated into a shouting match. This wouldn’t be so bad, if both sides had the right to shout equally as loud as the other side.

The problem is, for some reason, Conservatives are expected to mind our manners, be meek and mild, and follow the Marquis of Queensberry rules, while Liberals, libertarians, and self-identified “Moderates” (Social Liberals) call us everything but a child of God.

Liberal Trolls and their activity on the Internet are simply an extension of our culture at large.

Liberalism has always been a failed political ideology. It has never been embraced by the majority of Americans.

As a result of that undeniable fact,, Liberal Activists, especially Internet Trolls, are dirty, manipulative, little cowards, who overestimate their power….and, their own intelligence.

You see, Liberal Democrats, including the “Trolling” variety, both paid and unpaid, expect average Conservative Americans to behave like a dog who has been whipped too much, and go cower in a corner and allow them to insult us, and walk all over us in our online “discussions”.

Their expectation of Conservative Behavior is predicated on the fact that they know that we were raised right, usually by two parents, and that the majority of us are Christians, and are reluctant to have an out-of-body experience on an Internet Chat Board or Political Facebook Page, telling them where to go and the temperature when they get there.

Therefore, Liberal Democrats feel as if they can take advantage of the good nature of American Conservatives, and walk all over us.

Well, I’ve got some news for them.

As a Christian American Conservative, I do my best to live my faith, every day.

However, boys and girls, don’t forget… Jesus ran the money changers out of the temple.

And, judging from average Americans’ reactions to the FISA Memo, a bunch of Deep State Bureaucrats in the DOJ and the FBI are about to be run out of their “temples”, as well.

Liberals have been used to being able to bully the rest of us into “shutting up” for the entire 8 years of the reign of King Barack The First.

Now, with Donald J. Trump doing a magnificent job as President of the United States of America and the spigot on the fountain of information about the FISA Memo being turned wide open, Liberals are experiencing cognitive dissonance as they never have  before.

Average Americans simply will not be bullied into not believing what they have seen and read.

The FISA Memo is consequential and tells a story of Democratic Corruption which will undoubtedly not end well for those FBI Agents who took part in the treasonous actions against Presidential Candidate/President Donald J. Trump.

No matter how the Main Stream Media and Internet Trolls try to spin it.

A Day For Truth: FISA Memo to be Released Today. – A KJ Analysis

February 1, 2018

untitled (188)

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. – Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday released a 51-page unclassified transcript of the contentious meeting this week between Republicans and Democrats, during which members voted to publicly release the classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.

The transcript shows Democrats strongly objecting to the release, accusing Republicans of producing the memo to benefit President Donald Trump.

The motion to release the memo passed on a party-line basis. On Tuesday night, Trump, who has the ability to stop the memo’s release, was overheard telling a GOP lawmaker at the State of the Union that he’s “100 percent” supportive of the document’s release — although it hasn’t happened yet.

“I want to begin by expressing my alarm at where we are in this committee,” California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the panel, said in the meeting. “I have served on the committee for 10 years now. This is the first time we have sought to declassify highly sensitive information for a political reason. It is, I think, a terrible line to cross.”

The transcript release followed the FBI saying Wednesday that the bureau had “grave concerns” about releasing the classified memo.

 “With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it,” said the FBI statement. “As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

Five career officials from the FBI came to see White House Chief of Staff John Kelly late Tuesday afternoon to view an amended version of the memo — the product of a review by the White House, according to a senior administration official.

Fox News also has learned FBI Director Christopher Wray had 90 minutes with the four-page memo during his rare Sunday trip to Capitol Hill where he was joined by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. 

“Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies,” Nunes said Wednesday.

According to the transcript of the fractious meeting, Democratic Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois pressed Nunes on whether he had coordinated  with the White House in crafting the memo for the public to see.

“When you, as the majority, conceived of doing this memo for release to the body and to the public, the preparation, the thought of doing it, the consultation of it, was any of this done after/during conversations or consultations with anyone in the White House?” Quigley asked.

Nunes replied, “I would just answer, as far as I know, no.”

The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to accounts of KGB activity in Russia.

Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump “dossier” played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.

During Monday’s meeting, the GOP-majority committee voted against releasing a countering memo written by Democrats.

Of course the FBI does not want it to be made public today.

It will expose the FBI Hierarchy’s abuse of their positions and their attempt to interfere with the 2016 Presidential Election and the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

The Democratic Elite do not want it to be released either…for the same reasons.

As Rush Limbaugh said on his program on Tuesday…

It’s not a memo. It is a four-page report. It’s a summary of what the House Intelligence Committee has learned in its investigation of Trump colluding with Russia. Trey Gowdy, in numerous TV appearances yesterday and today has told us what’s in this memo. We’ve also learned that there’s some additional things like Rod Rosenstein may be prominently featured in this memo. You know why? And this is fascinating.

I’m getting a little bit ahead of the game here. Folks, it’s just a summary. Essentially, it’s the Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee getting sick and tired of waiting because there hasn’t been any evidence produced whatsoever on the original claim. It’s been over a year. There’s no sign the special counsel’s winding down at all, and so the Republicans, “Well, let me tell you why they haven’t found anything,” and they’re gonna lay out the evidence of how this whole thing is tainted.

That’s the purpose of it. That’s why the Democrats are panicked. And so Pencil Neck Adam Schiff has decided to write his own memo to refute the “Dennis” Nunes memo. Devin Nunes, I know. I just can’t help mocking Pelosi, folks. I’m sorry. Now, the Democrats are panicked because the Nunes memo is going to tell everybody in America who has exposure to it what you and I already know.

See, folks, we live in a bifurcated culture, and the people that read the New York Times do not know who Fusion GPS is. The people that read the New York Times and watch CNN do not know that Hillary Clinton paid for the Trump dossier to be written. They don’t know this because that hasn’t been reported.

The Democrat side of things has been able to bottle up everything you and I know about what could be called malfeasance, partisanship, and any other number of things that you would define as attacks on Trump and attempts to ruin his presidency, before that to ruin his campaign, and then after that, to try to ruin his transition.

…The Democrats have grand designs of winning back the House and even the Senate this year and then impeaching and convicting Donald Trump. And the memo that is about to be released is going to put a big dent in those plans.

As I have stated before, what has been playing out since being set in motion by the previous Presidential Administration, is nothing less than, as Radio Host Mark Levin has referred to it, a “silent coup”…a way to usurp our Constitution and the System of Checks and Balances which our Founding Fathers put in place to maintain and prosper our Constitutional Republic.

The last two years have seemed surreal to me.

The lengths which the Democrats and their Financial Backer, the Puppet Master himself, George Soros, have gone to in order to try to keep Trump from winning the Presidency and then, to keep him from “Making America Great Again” through civil violence, lies, innuendos, threats, and even Twitter Bots, has been something that I have never seen before in my 59 years.

And now, today, we are going to be exposed to information that those who have been charged to protect American Citizens, instead, attempted to “frame” a private citizen who beat a bunch of Professional Politicians to win the 2016 Presidential Election.

The Deep State Operatives, like the Democrats themselves who sat on their hands during the State of the Union Address, have been blinded by their hatred for Trump to the point where his defeat and banishment from the Oval Office means more to them than love of country and the welfare of the American Citizenry.

Also, as I have written before, I am quite aware that J. Edgar Hoover had files on politicians and celebrities, which he used as “leverage” to keep his job and to hide his kinky proclivities.

But even J. Edgar Hoover never took his vendettas this far.

This whole bloody mess is a result of a Democratic Administration and the zealots in the FBI and other Alphabet Agencies, who became Deep State Operatives in defense of the Washingtonian Status Quo which they had become an integral part of under the Obama Administration.

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely” and these individuals who had obtained levels of importance within the Federal Government took it upon themselves to choose whom they thought would be the best choice for the next president of the United States, and it wasn’t Donald J. Trump.

They did not care whom Average Americans living in America’s Heartland wanted….simply because they “knew what was best for us”.

If, as a Sovereign Nation, we are to rid ourselves of the Machiavellian plans and schemes of a political ideology which seeks to overrule the will of the people through the use of Machiavellian schemes and plans acted on by Deep State Operatives within our own government, ALL PERTINENT INFORMATION MUST BE MADE PUBLIC.

Today , if things go as expected with be a Historically important day in the life of our country.

Today will not be a “political” day.

It will be a day for TRUTH.

It will be the day when American turns the light on the cockroaches infesting the dark, dank cellars of our Federal Government…and we watch them run for cover.

The FISA Memo and the FBI: From the Private Files of J. Edgar Hoover to a Secret Society and Lovers’ Texts

January 27, 2018

FISA-Abuse-stamp-File-on-Desk-memo-900

TheHill.com reports that

The fight over the release of a classified memo alleging FBI misconduct has set up a potentially bitter clash between President Trump and the Justice Department.

Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd — a Trump appointee — wrote in a letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) that releasing the memo publicly would be “extraordinarily reckless” and endanger national security.

If the Intelligence Committee votes to release the four-page memo, which could happen early as early as next week, Trump would have an opportunity to veto the decision.

But the White House has signaled tacit support for the move and it’s widely expected that the president, who has previously claimed that the Obama administration “wiretapped” his campaign, will permit the release of the document.

Allowing the committee’s memo to become public unimpeded would be a slap in the face to the Department of Justice at a time when Trump’s efforts to influence its activity are under intense scrutiny.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is believed to be homing in on whether Trump obstructed justice by “fighting back” against the investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia. Meanwhile, a recent drumbeat of headlines have highlighted interactions between the president and Justice officials considered an unusual breach of the historical firewall between the department and the White House.

The stakes are just as high for Nunes, who has faced allegations from Democrats of ginning up the controversy over “unmasking” to provide cover for Trump’s wiretapping claims. The memo, they say, is part of a broad partisan effort to discredit the FBI, and by extension, Mueller.

The committee voted on party lines last week to make the memo, drafted by Nunes and his staff, available to the entire House. At least publicly, Nunes has not committed to a vote on making the document available to the public.

But backing away would carry its own set of political risks for the embattled chairman. Conservatives are clamoring for the release of the memo, calls that escalated after the news that the FBI lost five months of text messages between a pair of FBI employees once assigned to the investigation into the Trump campaign.

The bureau blamed a technical glitch and the Justice Department inspector general has since recovered the missing texts using forensic tools.

The precise contents of the memo remain unknown, but it is believed to contain allegations that the FBI did not adequately explain to a clandestine court that some of the information it used in a surveillance warrant application for Trump adviser Carter Page was opposition research funded by the Clinton campaign, now known as the “Steele dossier.”

Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants are highly classified — even the existence of a given warrant is classified — and Boyd in his letter warned Nunes that the reported allegations in the memo would be based on information that “neither you nor most of [the committee have] seen.”

The Justice Department, which has not been allowed to see the memo, expressed concerns common to the exposure of any classified information: that its public release will damage ongoing investigations and harm national security by burning sources and laying bare intelligence community capabilities.

“Indeed, we do not understand why the committee would possibly seek to disclose classified and law enforcement sensitive information without first consulting with the relevant members of the Intelligence Community,” Boyd wrote.

Several Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee, including Republican Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) have suggested that Nunes should allow the department to weigh in on the release of the document.

Nunes would be relying on an obscure House rule that has never before been used to override the classification system. If the committee votes to make the memo public, the president would have five days to block its release. And even if he did block the release, the full House could override him in a floor vote.

But the release of the memo could provide fuel for Trump’s claims that his transition was inappropriately spied on by the Obama administration — as well as back up his assertion that the FBI’s reputation is “in tatters”— and it remains unclear if he will back his own Justice Department.

Some Republicans who have viewed the memo have hinted heavily that it contains the key to unraveling the entire Mueller investigation, long described by the president as a “witch hunt.”

“We certainly support full transparency and we believe it’s at the House Intel Committee to make that decision at this point,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said this week.

A spokesman for Nunes said Thursday that the committee has not briefed the White House on the contents of the memo.

The Justice Department is not “currently aware of any wrongdoing relating to the FISA process,” according to Boyd.

While Nunes has described the memo as “facts,” Democrats have slammed it as a collection of misleading talking points they are unable to correct without exposing the highly classified information underpinning the document.

Boyd suggested that the Justice Department is in a similar position. “We assume members want to provide evidence of any specific allegation of misconduct to Department officials so that we may take appropriate action,” he wrote.

Lawmakers say the underlying intelligence justifying the memo’s allegations is so sensitive that only eight members of Congress are able to view it. Nunes and ranking member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) are two of the eight figures, but the other members of the Intelligence Committee are not. The top two lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence Committee are also part of the so-called Gang of Eight, but while they have access to the underlying intelligence, Nunes has denied committee requests to see the memo.

“Seeking Committee approval of public release would require [House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence] committee members to vote on a staff-drafted memorandum that purports to be based on classified source materials that neither you nor most of them have seen,” Boyd told Nunes.

Nunes has brushed aside the notion that the memo would be unpersuasive without the underlying intelligence to substantiate its claims, calling the argument Democratic obstruction of his investigation into Justice Department misconduct.

But a working group, including Nunes, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), met over the weekend to discuss the possibility of making some of the underlying information public. Nunes has “a plan,” according to committee member Mike Conaway (R-Texas), who provided no further details.

The memo is a committee work product and the responsibility for releasing it, or not, rests with Congress. The underlying intelligence, however, belongs to the executive branch and Trump could unilaterally make it public if he wished.

“I haven’t had that conversation with the president,” Sanders said earlier this week. “Right now, it’s going through the process with the House Intel committee. We feel like they should play that role at this point, and if it doesn’t happen we can address it at this point.”

According to Gowdy, who helped draft the memo, “everything” in it is based on documents provided to the committee by the FBI.

A spokesman for the Justice Department declined to comment when asked if officials had expressed Boyd’s concerns to the White House.

Well, gosh. Could the Professional Bureaucrats be looking out for their own interests by pleading for Congress and the President not to release the FISA Memo?

Do buffets take down their “All You Can Eat” sign when they see Rosie O’Donnell approaching?

On February 17th of last year, Eric Felton, writing for The Weekly Standard, made the following observation…

We seem to have forgotten the bad old days when J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI was untouchable because of the threat the Bureau posed to politicos who fell afoul of the director. There were the many filing cabinets—no one quite knows how many (one moving man who had to lug them down stairs later testified they were some three dozen cabinets stuffed with file-foldered documents)—full of material of a compromising nature about politicians and political leaders.

When he was deputy attorney general in the Ford White House, Laurence Silberman (now a federal judge) was sent to go through what was left of Hoover’s “Official & Confidential” files. “It was the single worst experience of my long governmental service,” Silberman later wrote. “Hoover had indeed tasked his agents with reporting privately to him any bits of dirt on figures such as Martin Luther King, or their families. Hoover sometimes used that information for subtle blackmail to ensure his and the bureau’s power.”

Then again, the blackmail wasn’t all that subtle. William Sullivan was ultimately the number three man at the Bureau. In the 1960s, he was in charge of domestic intelligence operations (and would have been responsible for collecting the very dirt that so appalled Silberman). Sullivan had a falling out with J. Edgar in the early 70s and, once he was no longer at the Bureau, talked out of school: “The moment [Hoover] would get something on a senator,” Sullivan said, “he’d send one of the errand boys up and advise the senator that ‘we’re in the course of an investigation, and we by chance happened to come up with this data on your daughter. But we wanted you to know this. We realize you’d want to know it.’ Well, Jesus, what does that tell the senator? From that time on, the senator’s right in his pocket.” (In 1977, Sullivan was killed in a hunting accident, having been “mistaken for a deer.”)

Such things could never happen again, of course.

He missed that one by a mile, huh?

President Ronald Reagan used to say that the nine words that you never want to hear were

I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

Now, don’t get me wrong. the rank and file of the FBI is composed of many stellar, heroic agents, who love this country and work sacrificially every day, serving with honor.

The hierarchy, composed mainly of Professional Bureaucrats, is another matter.

Being political appointees holding political opinions, while carrying political obligations to a certain political party, never bodes well in a position of legal authority.

Add into that mix an extra-marital affair between these bureaucrats and, to paraphrase, “the affairs of mice and men (and agents) will indeed go awry”.

The Professional Bureaucrats in the DOJ and the FBI know that this FISA Memo will blow their clandestine operation against the candidacy and the presidency of Donald J. Trump wide open and put an end to the sham of an investigation into Trump’s “Russian Collusion” that never happened.

And, they simply cannot have that happen.

Since the kinky days of J. Edgar Hoover, the hierarchy of the FBI have run clandestine investigations of public figures, both political and cultural leaders.

J. Edgar did it to hold onto his office and to have political leverage against his enemies, as he had skeletons in his own closet…and dresses, too.

But, I digress.

In this case however, the hierarchy of the FBI did it to circumvent the will of the American People and to install Hillary Clinton as the 45th President, thus protecting the status quo in the Halls of Power in Washington, DC.

When that didn’t happen, they determined to bring President Trump down, by any means necessary, including creating a fake story of Russian Collusion.

Thanks to two agents who decided to do the Extramarital Mattress Mambo and text each other thousands of times, written evidence has been provided to support the FISA Memo.

My late Former Father-in-law was a retired Police Lieutenant, who had worked with the FBI on several high-profile cases.

To say that he wasn’t a fan would be an understatement.

According to him, the letters FBI stood for “F—ing Bunch of Idiots”.

In the case of the FBI’s “Secret Society”, darned if he wasn’t right.

3 Names on FISA Memo Released, Grassley releases 7 Pages of Strzok/Page Texts. Is the “Schiff” About to Hit the Fan?

January 26, 2018

peter-strzok-900_c0-0-898-524_s561x327

According to The Daily Beast

A controversial Republican memo alleging surveillance abuse specifically names FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein along with former FBI Director James Comey.

Capitol Hill sources on both sides of the aisle say the memo’s release is only a matter of time. And when it comes out, these current and former officials — all GOP bêtes noires — are likely to face even more criticism from the right over their involvement in FBI counterintelligence work.

Republicans, including Trump himself, have spent months attacking McCabe and Comey while special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating Team Trump’s connections to the Kremlin. Rosenstein put that probe in place—a move Trump has derided as a witch hunt.

A groundswell is building to release the memo—written by Devin Nunes, the California Republican and key Trump ally who chairs the House intelligence committee—which former FBI agents fear will damage public trust in the bureau. While Democrats say the memo deliberately misrepresents the procedures for obtaining a foreign-intelligence surveillance warrant, The Daily Beast has learned that Hill Republicans are gearing up to use an obscure parliamentary rule to release it.

Meanwhile, the Justice Department has expressed serious concerns about the memo’s potential release. In a letter sent to Nunes on Jan. 24, Stephen Boyd, the department’s top congressional liaison, wrote that “it would be extraordinarily reckless for the Committee to disclose such information publicly without giving the Department and the FBI the opportunity to review the memorandum and to advise the HPSCI [the House intelligence committee] of the risk of harm to national security and to ongoing investigations that could come from public release.”

That letter also said the department is “unaware of any wrongdoing” related to the FISA process—indicating the department disagrees with the scores of congressional Republicans who say Nunes’ memo provides proof of wrongdoing.

Rep. Chris Collins, a New York Republican, told The Daily Beast that Nunes has told Republicans his staff spent months putting the memo together.

The news spawned the hashtag #releasethememo, with actors ranging from WikiLeaks to the ACLU to Michael Flynn Jr. calling for the memo to be made public. Democrats have emphasized Russian bots’ efforts to boost the hashtag, but a well-placed source told The Daily Beast yesterday that the bulk of the support for the social media campaign comes from actual Americans on the right.

The memo is enormously controversial. Hill Democrats and former FBI officials say it’s a ploy to damage public confidence in the FBI and undermine Mueller’s investigation. Republicans, meanwhile, say the memo contains massively disturbing evidence of FBI wrongdoing.

The recent Republican attacks on the bureau are taking a toll on current agents and analysts, two former senior FBI officials told The Daily Beast.

Ron Hosko, who formerly headed the FBI’s criminal investigative division, said morale in the bureau is “sagging.” Some officials could barely leave their houses to string up Christmas lights without being accosted by their neighbors about the bureau’s apparent troubles, he said.

He added that members of Congress who argue that the FBI hastily obtained a surveillance order known as a FISA warrant based on British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s dossier of salacious allegations are nothing but conspiracy theorists.

“I think there are people who are intent on damaging the FBI, facts be damned,” he said.

Ali Soufan, a retired FBI counterterrorism special agent, warned that the attacks on the bureau were draining their accusers’ credibility.

“Some of the Republicans attacking the FBI are isolating themselves from otherwise sympathetic FBI agents. It’s no secret that the FBI tends to lean conservative,” Soufan said.

“The few GOP politicians attacking the FBI are, frankly, demagogues. They’re putting party and self-interest above country. They are damaging national security. They unfortunately gave up any moral authority.”

To make the memo public, House Republicans are considering the use of an arcane, little-known process from the House of Representatives’ rules of procedure (PDF).

Rule X, subsection 11(g), lays out a process for releasing classified material even over objections by the president of the United States.

The rule only comes up on extremely rare occasions, according to veterans of contentious declassification disputes between the intelligence agencies and their congressional overseers.

Typically, when Congress requests a declassification, an internal review occurs within the relevant agency or agencies. It’s captained substantially by the attorney general, the director of national intelligence, and the CIA director, depending on the particular agencies with substantial equities in the disclosure at issue. When multiple intelligence agencies are involved, the director of national intelligence runs the process.

“It doesn’t typically need to be invoked,” said Robert Litt, who never saw the House use it during his seven-plus years as the senior lawyer at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence under ex-directors James Clapper and Dennis Blair. “It’s only if Congress wants to declassify something the executive branch doesn’t want declassified.”

Under the rule, if a clash occurs between the House intelligence committee and the executive branch over keeping something secret, the president gets five days to deliver objections that cite a danger to national security posed by disclosure. Should the dispute persist, the committee can vote to take the matter to the full House of Representatives to consider. The full House’s debate is to occur in secret, with a public vote determining the outcome.

The president, however, can simply decide on his own to declassify anything. And in Trump’s case, his spokesperson is on the record supporting declassification.

“We certainly support full transparency. We believe that’s at the House intel committee to make that decision at this point,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said Tuesday. “It sounds like there are some members in the House that have some real concern about what’s in that memo and feel very strongly that the American public should be privy to see it.”

Sanders is procedurally correct. The entire Rule X subsection 11(g) process depends on the House intelligence committee initially voting for declassification. While the committee voted last Thursday to permit House members outside the committee to view the still-classified memo in a secured room, a declassification vote has yet to occur, the top Democrat on the panel indicated Wednesday.

“It now appears that the GOP intends to seek further dissemination of this classified information, this time to the public,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said in a statement, adding that Democrats had drafted a counter-memo “setting out the relevant facts and exposing the misleading character of the Republicans’ document so that members of the House are not left with an erroneous impression of the dedicated professionals at the FBI and DOJ.”

Asked if an internal executive branch declassification process has begun, a spokesman for the office of the director of national intelligence replied: “We don’t have anything on this matter.”

FBI officials asked to see Nunes’ memo, but a spokesperson told The Daily Beast on Sunday that their request was denied.

At this point, congressional sources on both sides of the aisle say they think the memo’s release is inevitable. Nunes holds the reins. Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy are deferring to Nunes as to how to handle the memo, according to leadership aides.

“It is the mood of our conference, clearly, to release it,” said Rep. Collins. “And I would think it’s safe to say, based on Devin outlining the ins and outs and crossing of the t’s and dotting of the i’s to do this right, that would be his intention as well.”

Inside the bureau, former special agent Soufan said there was “disappointment and frustration” over the right’s attacks, but not surprise.

“It’s not the first time we’ve been attacked [by politicians] and it won’t be the last. A lot of [FBI] people are very disappointed, but they’re tuning it out and they’re going to support the mission,” Soufan said.

In a related story from yesterday, Senate Judicial Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley released 7 pages of text messages between FBI Agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

New texts released by Grassley on Thursday also indicated that FBI officials believed FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should be recused from the Clinton investigation because of his family’s ties to Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who is close with the Clintons.

In an October 28, 2016 text exchange, Page told Strzok that then- FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki thought McCabe should not have participated in the probe.

“Rybicki just called to check in,” she wrote. “He very clearly 100% believes that Andy should be recused because of the ‘perception.’”

“God,” Strzok replied.

Asked by Page why McCabe should be recused now, if not before, Strzok said: “I assume McAuliffe picked up.”

McCabe eventually recused himself from the Clinton probe one week before the election.

Okay, so you have FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein along with former FBI Director James Comey about to get nailed by this 4-page memo.

Do y’all understand what we are talking about here?

Please allow me to review…

A Former Presidential Administration weaponized the FBI and DOJ for the purposes of not only spying on , but also sabotaging the Candidacy and Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

These Deep State Operatives, loyal to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party, protected both President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Candidate Hillary Clinton, while using both the Bureaucratic and Electronic Tools at their disposal to somehow attempt to keep Trump from Becoming President.

Having failed at that, they invented the fictitious Russian Collusion Narrative as both a distraction and an impediment, in order to prevent President Trump from fulfilling his Campaign Promise to “Make America Great Again”.

This “Secret Society” within the FBI, ensconced in their Swamp of Bureaucracy, considered themselves, as most of the Liberal Elite do, to be smarter than everybody else, “untouchable”, and, evidently, above the laws of the nation which they had sworn to uphold and its citizens whom they had sworn to serve.

Back when all of the “Resistance”, i.e., the whining Libs, the demonstrations, the marches, the pink hats shaped like a woman’s you-know-what, were all happening, I wrote several articles in which I said that it all stemmed from Modern Liberal’s wish to turn our Sovereign Nation into a Socialist Paradise, a wish left unfulfilled thanks to Americans staying strong during the nightmarish 8 years of Barack Hussein Obama’s failed Presidency.

Little did I know at the time just how brainwashed and programmed the Liberals within the Halls of Power in Washington, DC were.

Three things now need to happen:

  1. The 4-page memo needs to be released to the American Public. Whether Congress does it or President Trump declassifies it, does not matter. We need to see it.
  2. A Second Special Counsel needs to be appointed and the people responsible for these acts of treason against our nation need to be held responsible for their actions.
  3. Special Counsel James Mueller and his Dog and Pony Show need to fold their tents and go home. As Don Meredith used to sing on Monday Night Football, “Turn out the lights. The party’s over”.

You no doubt noticed that I used the word “treason” in my second point.

That is because there is no other word to describe a clandestine operation put into motion by a previous Presidential Administration for the sole purpose of circumventing the will of the American People through interference in our Electoral Process and a smooth Transition of Power.

It is time to speak the truth and shame the Devil.

…And the Democrats.

Trump Wants to Interview With Mueller. Why That’s a Bad Idea…

January 25, 2018

FBI Director Robert Mueller Testifies To Senate Committee On Oversight Of FBI

“I’m looking forward to it actually. Just so you understand. There’s been no collusion whatsoever. There’s no obstruction whatsoever. And I’m looking forward to it,” – President Trump on the possibility of being interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, 1/24/18

FoxNews.com reports that

More than 20 White House personnel have voluntarily given interviews to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating Russia’s actions during the 2016 election, Fox News has learned.

A personal attorney for President Donald Trump also said the White House turned over more than 20,000 pages of records to investigators, calling the level of cooperation and transparency “unprecedented.”

According to a summary of records and witness interviews reviewed by Fox News, 17 campaign employees — plus 11 others affiliated with the campaign – also have spoken with Mueller’s team or congressional committees.

Among those who have been interviewed by Mueller’s team, or are expected to be, include former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus; former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer; White House Communications Director Hope Hicks; and former White House adviser Steve Bannon.

The new details came on the same day that reports emerged of special counsel interviews with senior members of the intelligence community, including the director of national intelligence, Dan Coats; CIA Director Mike Pompeo; and NSA Director Adm. Mike Rogers.

The summary document said the White House had turned over 1,601 documents totaling 5,079 pages related to the former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russia. The White House also turned over 1,245 documents (7,799 pages) on former FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired last year.

The documents include privileged material of all kinds, according to the president’s personal attorney.

Whether Trump himself will ultimately be interviewed by Mueller has been a topic of recent speculation. Earlier this month, Trump cast doubt on that possibility, saying it wouldn’t be necessary since there was “no collusion” between his campaign and the Russians.

But on Wednesday, asked about an interview, Trump said he’s “looking forward” to it. 

Fox News requested comment from the special counsel’s office but there was no immediate response.

Rush Limbaugh checked in with his opinion on this subject yesterday during his program.

So Mueller wants to ask Trump why he fired Comey and why he fired Flynn. You can see what kind of trap this is. Trump doesn’t owe anybody an explanation on this. But there are still people who think that they can force one out of him. I would also reject the offer, if it’s made — which I don’t think it would be. But there’s a possibility that Trump’s lawyers could say, “You know, we’ll do this, but we want it in writing. You submit your questions in writing, and then we’ll answer them in writing.”

And while some people think that would be the best way to go because there’s no pressure… You have the questions in front of you, and then you write your answers down and you review them. You edit them, and you don’t submit them until you are fully, fully confident that what you want to say and what you don’t want to say is in your answer. The problem, again, in my layman’s view of this is those written answers — whoever writes them — are, for legal purposes, written by Donald Trump.

And anything he writes down can then be used as a springboard for any other avenue or branch of the investigation. That points up another thing. They have… If Trump’s gonna do this, they had better get some really serious limitations on scope, on time. “Okay. You want to talk to me about Flynn and you want to talk to me about Kelly. But we’re not talking about the dossier. We’re not…” They can try to set the parameters. I just think it’s a rotten idea. It’s just a perjury trap, and this is the benefit of the doubt, but even if Mueller’s not setting it up as a perjury trap, it still is one.

They don’t have anything on Trump colluding with the Russians, and even if they did, that’s not a crime. They don’t have any evidence that the election was rigged, that Trump knew about it and worked with the Russians. They don’t have any evidence. So why would you give them another avenue to come at you? Which is, of course, this obstruction angle. Now, some in the Drive-By Media are speculating that this request from Mueller to talk to Trump about Kelly and firing Comey could mean that Mueller is near wrapping up his investigation.

…But he’s got 15 virulently anti-Trump people working for him who would no doubt be in on any kind of an interview, sit-down, Q&A. I was a little taken aback. I have no reason to doubt Professor Dershowitz, but I find it difficult for any human being to be that detached. A thinking, engaged human being who cares about the outcome of events every other day of the year, I just find it really hard to believe that anybody that informed, educated, engaged can then have an ambivalent attitude about where an investigation the ends up.

I’m with Rush on this one.

I think that the President should tell Mueller to go take a long walk on a short pier.

However, it’s not because I do not believe that Trump could handle himself in the interview. He has had to sit in legal interviews before.

Believe it or not, he knows when to keep his mouth shut. He would not be so successful if he did not.

My reason for not wanting him to participate in an interview with Mueller is the simple fact that he doesn’t have to.

As Rush said, there is no evidence of collusion. They have been spinning their wheels for quite some time now.

And, at this late date, with the Democrats’ well-laid plan to get rid of him falling down around their ears, Trump is in the catbird seat.

He does not have to disprove anything. Special Counsel Mueller, when it comes to “collusion with the Russians” has proven exactly two things: diddly and squat.

Logically, if you had been working on a special project for over a year and could not find any evidence to support the premise that the project was built upon, wouldn’t you go to your boss and end the project?

I have served as a Grand Jury Member on both Federal and State Grand Juries and I can tell you that those attorneys will not bring a case to the grand jury unless they have both evidence and believable witnesses.

Mueller has neither.

All he has are a bunch of Trump-hating Democratic Donating Professional FBI Bureaucrats whom he brought in as “Investigators”.

And, given the deteriorating reputation of FBI Bureaucrats, I would say that his entire team is suspect.

Don’t interview with Mueller, Mr. President.

Instead, go on National Television and declassify the “shocking”4-page memo which the DOJ does not want Congress to release.

It would be a lot less painful and a lot more effective.

And the reactions by the Democrats, their Deep State Operatives, and the Main Stream Media will be a whole lot of fun to watch.

Comey Calls for “More Ethical Leadership” in 2018. Why Irony is Embarrassed.

January 2, 2018

09e2efc72fcda45fa571f59a35f038e1

James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal! – President Donald J. Trump, July 10, 2017, Twitter

FoxNews.com reports that

Former FBI Director James Comey caused a stir on social media by calling for “more ethical leadership” in 2018, even as his time at the helm of the bureau has come under intense scrutiny over the last year.

“Here’s hoping 2018 brings more ethical leadership, focused on the truth and lasting values,” Comey wrote in an apparent swipe at President Trump, who fired him last year. “Happy New Year, everybody.”

Comey’s tweet had more than 30,000 retweets on Monday morning – and thousands of responses accusing him of lacking self-awareness amid the firestorm surrounding the bureau he once led.
“Here is hoping 2018 the U.S. will have a clean, politically, FBI…that will actually do their jobs,” one user, David Weissman, remarked.

Another replied: “Lordy, how could you type that with a straight face?”

(During a congressional hearing last year, Comey memorably said “Lordy, I hope there are tapes” after the president suggested it was possible he had recorded their conversations.)

The Department of Justice’s Inspector General is conducting a review of the bureau’s investigation — under Comey’s watch — into former Secretary of State’s Hillary Clinton email servers.

Over the last year, it was revealed Comey began drafting his July 2016 exoneration statement before key witnesses in the Clinton email investigation had been interviewed.

The inspector general review also is looking into whether FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe – whose wife has strong ties to the Democratic Party – should not have been involved in the investigation.

Other top FBI officials, who worked under Comey and were involved in the Russia investigation, have also come under scrutiny for anti-Trump messages.

Lawmakers have been alarmed by recently revealed texts from FBI official Peter Strzok, who called Trump an “idiot” and who referenced an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency.

Strzok had been assigned to Robert Mueller’s special counsel probe, but has since been reassigned.

Trump’s attorneys have also pounced on Comey for admitting to orchestrating the leaking of his memos about his interactions with the president to the New York Times in the hopes it would lead to a special counsel investigation.

They have every right to pounce on Comey.

Obama hired him.

Comey is a Professional Bureaucrat. He is a Political Weasel.

Comey followed Robert Mueller as Director of the FBI.

He remained loyal to King Barack The First after President Trump decided to keep him on as FBI Director.

That is why he took notes in meetings with Trump and did not document his meetings with anyone in the Previous Administration, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.

Back on September 20, 2016. Breitbart.com reported the following about Comey…

A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Lockheed Martin

When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel. 

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.

HSBC Holdings

In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings.

“Mr. Comey’s appointment will be for an initial three-year term which, subject to re-election by shareholders, will expire at the conclusion of the 2016 Annual General Meeting,” according to HSBC company records.

HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation. For instance, HSBC Holdings has partnered with Deutsche Bank through the Clinton Foundation to “retrofit 1,500 to 2,500 housing units, primarily in the low- to moderate-income sector” in “New York City.”

“Retrofitting” refers to a Green initiative to conserve energy in commercial housing units. Clinton Foundation records show that the Foundation projected “$1 billion in financing” for this Green initiative to conserve people’s energy in low-income housing units.

The raw, unmitigated corruption involving Hillary Clinton and her Foundation is breath-taking in its size and scope and should have already been targeted by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Is it very apparent that Comey has been a duplicitous Clintonista for a long time.

…even while working for President Donald J. Trump.

So, for him to opine that there needs to be “more ethical leadership” in Washington, D.C. is the height of hypocrisy….a condition that seems to run rampant among Washington Bureaucrats.

If Former Director Comey wants a more ethical Leadership in Washington, I would suggest that he begin with the man in the mirror…if President Trump had not fired him already and taken care of that particular problem.

Until He Comes,

Flynn Pleads Guilty. “Dogs and Cats Living Together”? Or a Great Big “Nothingburger”?

December 2, 2017

michael-flynn

Yesterday, after I arrived at work, I checked the news on my cell phone and found out that Michael Flynn had pleaded guilty to 1 count of lying to the FBI.

Every Liberal Internet Troll still living in their Mom’s Basement, suddenly switched over to their high-octane fuel (that’s right: Flaming Hot Cheetos) and hit their computer keyboards with a rapturous excitement that they had not felt since Dad agreed that they didn’t have to move out after college.

But what does this mean?

Opinions vary…as FoxNews.com reports…

Former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the FBI about contacting Russian officials on behalf of then-President-elect Donald Trump.

The plea by Flynn, the first White House official to be charged in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, electrified Washington and set off intense debate among legal minds about what it portended for the future of the Trump White House.

Andrew McCarthy, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney, argued that Flynn’s admission may not be a significant break in Mueller’s investigation.

“[Flynn], like [former Trump campaign adviser George] Papadopoulos … is being permitted to plead guilty to a mere process crime,” McCarthy wrote on National Review Online. “[F]or for all the furor, we have a small-potatoes plea in Flynn’s case … despite extensive ‘collusion’ evidence.”

McCarthy went on to argue that “[i]t is becoming increasingly palpable that, whatever ‘collusion’ means, there was no actionable, conspiratorial complicity by the Trump campaign in the Kremlin’s machinations.” McCarthy also noted that Mueller’s other significant criminal case, against Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, “has nothing to do with the 2016 election.”

However, Los Angeles defense attorney Ken White, himself a former assistant U.S. attorney, posted on Twitter that he was not as confident as McCarthy in the absence of a wider conspiracy.

“You generally spell out the entire conspiracy in a cooperator’s guilty plea — in many cases,” White wrote. “With more sophisticated cooperators … you play the cards closer to the vest.

“Yes, you’d get a drug mule to spill to the whole conspiracy in the plea to lock them in,” White added. “A Flynn? Maybe not.”

National security lawyer Steve Vladeck echoed White, tweeting that “the story isn’t that Michael Flynn is pleading guilty. It’s what he’s giving Mueller in exchange for such a minor charge …”

“We may not know the answer to that for some time,” Vladeck added, “but I have to think it’s substantial.”

Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano was less circumspect, characterizing Flynn’s plea as “a nightmare for Donald Trump” and “probably the tip of a prosecutorial iceberg.”

However, Napolitano also told “Shepard Smith Reporting” that if Trump told Flynn to reach out to Russian officials after his election last year, that may not be an impeachable offense, though “they certainly are in the category of offenses that are impeachable.”

“Beyond this, the president of the United States has steadfastly, repeatedly and consistently denied that he had any knowledge of any involvement with the Russians,” Napolitano added. “If Gen. Flynn contradicts that in a credible way under oath, we have a very serious problem on our hands.”

Rush Limbaugh, as he always does, gave a very concise explanation of the situation during his program yesterday…

We are right where we all knew we were going. Back on June 8th, I told everybody there’s not any evidence of collusion. We’re headed towards a process crime, which is exactly what happened today. We’ve all known this day was coming. And because the Drive-Bys have been salivating for this story to amount to something that it never will amount to, what today really means is that we are now looking forward to another six months of intense news stories, allegations of Trump-Russia collusion. But there wasn’t any. Flynn does not know of any, and he’s not going to report any. Now, let’s start at the other end of this. Because that is… I could have teased you. I could have led you along here and taken 20 minutes to get there, but I have never toyed with the people in this audience.

I’ve never dangled carrots out there and tricked you into waiting for what the payoff is. Now, there are some things that you need to keep in mind about this as we begin to unpack this. The first thing to know is that Michael Flynn worked in the Obama administration and was despised personally by Barack Obama. Obama hated Flynn. Flynn was at the Defense Intelligence Agency, and Flynn had a much different view and take on militant Islamic terrorism than Obama, and Flynn was constantly lobbying for foreign policy that would deal with militant Islamic terrorism in the way he thought it presented a threat.

As we know, in Obama’s world there is no militant Islamic terrorism because Islam is a religion of peace. I’m not exaggerating here. I’m not trying to be snarky about Obama. I’m telling you just straight up and down: Obama doesn’t believe in militant Islamic terrorism, as far as every public statement he’s ever made. There was a genuine policy disagreement and a genuine personality clash, and this is why Flynn was being surveilled by the Obama administration during the transition.

Or I should say the Russian ambassador who went to lunch all the time was being surveilled, and it was Michael Flynn during his phone calls that was unmasked by the Obama administration. Flynn worked for Trump for 25 days and was fired for lying. Trump is the one who fired Flynn for lying. Obama never did. During the transition, Obama personally told Trump not to bring Flynn into his administration.

So deep was the animus that Obama had for Flynn that he actually suggested and warned Trump, “Don’t go there. The guy is a bad actor.” (interruption) What? Brian Ross? Okay. Well, let’s go back to the end again if you want more of this. Brian Ross of the ABC News is the only source for this. Breaking news, ABC: Michael Flynn has promised to flip on Trump, to flip on Trump, to flip on Trump’s family, flip to the White House staff.

Brian Ross of ABC News is the only source to report this. Who is Brian Ross? Brian Ross is the investigative reporters for ABC News who — during a mass shooting in Colorado at a movie theater — immediately began looking to see if the shooter could be a member of the Tea Party. So they found membership rosters of Tea Party members, and, lo and behold, they found of a name in the Tea Party roster that was the same name as the shooter.

So Brian Ross, without knowing, heads to the nearest camera and alludes to the possibility the shooter could be a member of the Tea Party. It turned out not to be true. ABC News is reporting that “Flynn is prepared to testify that Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians,” and this is why: “to lay the groundwork for mutual efforts against ISIS in Syria.” That’s the big breaking news from ABC.

Ladies and gentlemen, that is exactly the sort of thing an incoming national security adviser is supposed to do in a transition between administrations. Flynn is supposed “to make contact with the Russians … to lay the groundwork for mutual efforts against ISIS in Syria.” There’s nothing here about undermining current Obama policy, which is what ABC and CNN and the others are trying to make you think is that Flynn was talking to the Russians to try to undermine Obama and his newly placed sanctions on Russian delegates and ambassadors and aides and so forth in the United States.

But the incoming national security adviser making “contact with the Russians … to lay the groundwork for mutual efforts against ISIS in Syria” is exactly what happens during every transition. It is exactly the sort of thing the incoming national security adviser is supposed to do. Now, if this… And this is the key thing about it. If this were part of the basis for a collusion case arising out of Russia’s election meddling, then Flynn would not be pleading guilty to a process crime today.

He would be pleading to an espionage conspiracy. At the end of the day, this remains a process crime. He lied to FBI agents. And if there were collusion, if Flynn were promising to spill the beans on collusion, then he would not just be pleading guilty to a process crime. “But, Rush! But, Rush! He could be… He could have made the deal and that could be what Mueller’s…” No, no, no. Not at this stage. You dangle that carrot down the road.

So, the reality of the situation is that there still is no proven collusion between President Trump and the Russians.

What appears to have happened, as Rush said, are activities that would have been considered S.O.P. in any other incoming Administration.

What has changed is the advent of the bizarre out-of-control National Temper Tantrum by Modern American Liberals which has been raging since the votes were counted on the night of November 8, 2016.

As I have written before, the frenzy which those who are still grieving Hillary’s loss has consumed their very souls in such a manner that they have metamorphosed into a group resembling 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.

Their problem is, as Rush said, all they have right now is a Process Crime.

The other problem with any testimony that Flynn might give is the fact that he lost his job at the White House for LYING.

So, that tarnishes the veracity of anything he might say.

In other words, this may turn out to be a great big “nothingburger”.

As the Witch Hunt continues…

Until He Comes,
