Hillary Claims Bill’s Affair With Monica Not An “Abuse of Power”

It was that chemistry. And was the fact that he was president part of that chemistry? I don’t know. Maybe. Probably. But it was – I was there because there was chemistry. I wasn’t there because, oh, this is the president. – Monica Lewinsky

Uh huh.

FoxNews.com reports that

Hillary Clinton vehemently denied in an interview Sunday that her husband’s extramarital affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky was an abuse of power and added that former President Bill Clinton was right not to resign amid a scandal that led to his impeachment on perjury and obstruction charges.

“Absolutely not,” the former first lady said during the CBS “Sunday Morning” interview when asked if Bill Clinton should have stepped down.

“It wasn’t an abuse of power?” CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil asked.

Clinton responded: “No. No.”

Hillary Clinton, who went on to be elected to the Senate and served as President Obama’s secretary of state, said the relationship was not an abuse of power because Lewinsky “was an adult.” At the time of the affair, Lewinsky was 22.

Separately, in 1999, former nursing home administrator Juanita Broaddrick said Clinton raped her in a hotel room in 1978, when he was attorney general of Arkansas. Clinton denied the accusations.

Hillary Clinton ultimately brought the topic of conversation to President Trump.

“But let me ask you this: Where’s the investigation of the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made, and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?” she said. “So, there was an investigation [of Bill], and it, as I believe, came out in the right place.”

Clinton’s comments came quickly after she rejected any comparisons between her husband’s actions and the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during the confirmation process.

Calling Kavanaugh’s swearing-in ceremony at the White House “a political rally” in a CNN interview last week, Clinton lambasted the justice and Trump.

“It further undermined the image and integrity of the court,” she said. “And that troubles me greatly, it saddens me, because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government.”

Clinton also blasted Trump’s treatment of Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegation that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a high school party in 1982. 

“The president’s been true to form,” Clinton said, according to The Hill. “He has insulted, attacked, demeaned women throughout the campaign, really for many years leading up to the campaign, and he’s continued to do that inside the White House.”

What a hypocrite.

It appears that “The Queen of Mean” is counting on Americans having short memories.

Let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane, shall we?

Back in the Bill Clinton era, White House advisor Betsey Wright coined the term “bimbo eruptions” to describe a long list of presi­den­tial gal pals.

BIll “Bubba” Clinton’s Bimbo List” includ­ed, but is not limit­ed to (I’m sure) Jennifer Flowers, Former Miss Ameri­ca Eliza­beth Ward, Paul Corbin Jones, and, of course, Monica Lewin­sky.

The Lewin­sky scandal was a sensa­tion that enveloped the presi­den­cy of Bill Clinton in 1998–99, leading to his impeach­ment by the U.S. House of Repre­sen­ta­tives and acquit­tal by the Senate.

Paula Corbin Jones, a former Arkansas state worker who claimed that Bill Clinton had accost­ed her sexual­ly in 1991 when he was gover­nor of Arkansas, had brought a sexual harass­ment lawsuit again­st the presi­dent. In order to show a pattern of behav­ior on Clinton’s part, Jones’s lawyers questioned sever­al women believed to have been engag­ing in sex  with him. On Jan. 17, 1998, Bubba took the stand, becom­ing the first sitting presi­dent to testi­fy as a civil defen­dant.

During this testi­mony, Clinton denied having had an affair with Monica S. Lewin­sky, an unpaid intern and later a paid staffer at the White House who worked in the White House from 1995–96. Lewin­sky had earlier, in a deposi­tion in the same case, also denied having such a relation­ship. Kenneth Starr, the indepen­dent counsel in the White­wa­ter case, had already received tape record­ings made by Linda R. Tripp (a former cowork­er of Lewinsky’s) of telephone conver­sa­tions in which Lewin­sky described her involve­ment with the presi­dent. Assert­ing that there was a “pattern of decep­tion,” Starr obtained from Attor­ney Gener­al Janet Reno permis­sion to inves­ti­gate the matter.

The presi­dent publicly denied having had a relation­ship with Lewin­sky and charges of cover­ing it up. His advis­er, Vernon Jordan, denied having counseled Lewin­sky to lie in the Jones case, or having arranged a job for her outside Washing­ton, to help cover up the affair. Hillary Clinton claimed that a “vast right-wing conspir­a­cy” was trying to destroy her husband, while Repub­li­cans and conser­v­a­tives portrayed him as immoral and a liar.

In March, Jordan and others testi­fied before Starr’s grand jury, and lawyers for Paula Jones released papers reveal­ing, among other things, that Clinton, in his January deposi­tion, had admit­ted to a sexual relation­ship in the 1980s with Arkansas enter­tain­er Gennifer Flowers, a charge he had long denied. In April, howev­er, Arkansas feder­al judge Susan Webber Wright dismissed the Jones suit, ruling that Jones’s story, if true, showed that she had been exposed to “boorish” behav­ior but not sexual harass­ment; Jones appealed.

In July, Starr grant­ed Lewin­sky immuni­ty from perjury charges, and Clinton agreed to testi­fy before the grand jury. He did so on Aug. 17, then went on televi­sion to admit the affair with Lewin­sky and ask for forgive­ness. In Septem­ber, Starr sent a 445-page report to the House of Repre­sen­ta­tives, recom­mend­ing four possi­ble grounds for impeach­ment: perjury, obstruc­tion of justice, witness tamper­ing, and abuse of author­i­ty.

On Dec. 19, Clinton became the second presi­dent (after Andrew Johnson) to be impeached, on two charges: perjury—in his Aug., 1998, testimony—and obstruc­tion of justice. The vote in the House was large­ly along party lines.

In Jan., 1999, the trial began in the Senate. On Feb. 12, after a trial in which testi­mony relat­ing to the charges was limit­ed, the Senate reject­ed both counts of impeach­ment. The perjury charge lost, 55–45, with 10 Repub­li­cans joining all 45 Democ­rats in voting again­st it; the obstruc­tion charge drew a 50–50 vote. Subse­quent­ly, on Apr. 12, Judge Wright, who had dismissed the Jones case, found the presi­dent in contempt for lying in his Jan., 1998, testi­mony, when he denied the Lewin­sky affair. In July, Judge Wright ordered the presi­dent to pay nearly $90,000 to Ms. Jones’s lawyers. On Jan. 19, 2001, the day before he left office, Presi­dent Clinton agreed to admit to giving false testi­mony in the Jones case and to accept a five-year suspen­sion of his law license and a $25,000 fine in return for an agree­ment by the indepen­dent counsel, Robert W. Ray (Starr’s succes­sor), to end the inves­ti­ga­tion and not prose­cute him.

In a later inter­view, Hillary claimed that Bill suffered child­hood abuse which may have caused him to philan­der­er and experi­ence “bimbo eruptions” later in life. She described her philan­der­ing husband as “a hard dog to keep on the porch”.

Fast forwarding to her own scandals…

What Americans witnessed during the FBI’s lackadaisical investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Scandal known as E-mailgate, was an unequal application of the rule of law as applies to Professional Politicians in general and, in this case, specifically, a former member of the Obama Administration.

Leading up to that fateful day on which Hillary Clinton’s unholy quest for power got derailed, the CBS Morning News presented a poll in which 60% of Americans believed that Clinton lied about her mishandling of emails containing top secret information which could have potentially put the lives of our military and covert operatives at risk.

Now, that was a CBS poll, which of course was weighted heavily in favor of Liberals, so you can imagine how folks like you and me out here in Flyover Country feel about the situation to this very day.

On top of that was the Clinton Foundation Scandal…

Senior foundation officials coordinated with the State Department to give “Friends of Bill” Clinton preferential treatment during earthquake recovery efforts in Haiti in 2010, according to emails obtained by the Republican National Committee through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit.

Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra pledged $100 million to the foundation in 2005 and later benefited from the foundation’s work in Colombia, where he used the land he acquired in the country to set up an oil business, according to the Post.

The foundation has received millions of dollars from foreign governments such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Canada, Sweden and Ireland.

But donations to the foundation have dropped by 37 percent to $108 million last year after allegations that Hillary Clinton used the charity to solicit million-dollar donations from foreign governments and corporations in exchange for favorable treatment from the State Department while Hillary was Secretary of State.

Hillary Clinton left the Clinton Foundation in April 2015 to run for president.

Our government was never meant to be a feudal system. America remains a Constitutional Republic.

American  Politicians were never meant to be Lords, who would remain in power in perpetuity. Our Founding Fathers envisioned 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.

The Democrats, like Hillary herself, wanted to rule our nation in perpetuity and are throwing a never-ending National Temper Tantrum, which they have named “The Resistance”, over the fact that average Americans, like you and me, ruined the best-laid plans of mice and Pajama-boys by electing Donald J. Trump to be the 45th President of the United States of America.

Hillary’s hypocritical never-ending attacks of President Trump are just the accusations of a dejected over being rejected politician attempting to remain relevant within her own political party.

For all of the Liberals’ “concern” over Trump, they have yet to show evidence of collusion with the Russians nor evidence of a crime which he has committed.

And, for Hillary to be encouraging a continued division of America, is the biggest display of sour grapes that America has ever seen.

Like Golem went into the volcano after his “Precious”, so the Liberal Democrats, including Hillary, are ending their political lives with their quest to overthrow the wish of the American People to have Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.

The 2018 Midterm Elections are not just going to be a Red Wave…they are going to be a Red Tsunami.

And, the Far Left Democrats will have no one to blame but themselves.

Hillary Tells Dems That They Cannot Be Civil With Us “Deplorables” Until They Regain Power

October 10, 2018

hillary

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it.” – Hillary Clinton, Democratic Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America, 2016

FoxNews.com reports that

Hillary Clinton, in a television interview Tuesday, rejected the idea that Democrats should be “civil” with Republicans in the age of Donald Trump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach. 

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said.

Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Clinton’s comments come amid escalating attacks against Republican lawmakers and Trump administration officials by left-wing activists.

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., said Sunday his wife had received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading, after Gardner voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Before and after the vote, thousands of demonstrators stormed the halls of Congress and steps of the Supreme Court to protest Kavanaugh.

Last week, Democratic intern Jackson Cosko, who recently worked as an unpaid intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, also was arrested for posting the personal information of Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah on Wikipedia — including their home addresses.

During the Kavanaugh battle, two female activists cornered Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in an elevator and screamed at him, with one of them repeatedly demanding he look at her as she accused him of suggesting her own sexual assault “doesn’t matter.”

And days earlier, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife Heidi were hounded out of a restaurant by protesters peppering the senator with questions about Kavanaugh and chanting “we believe survivors” and “cancel Kavanaugh.”

The tactic of hounding lawmakers and Trump officials out of restaurants became more prevalent in June, when White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were driven out of restaurants amid the backlash over the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border.

Such confrontations were encouraged by Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who days later called on supporters to confront Trump officials in public spaces.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she told a crowd.

This week, Republicans have been pushing back against such tactics. Some have pointed to the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., at a Republican baseball practice last year as a reminder of how heated rhetoric can lead to much worse.

Kelley Paul, the wife of Sen. Rand Paul, revealed that she now keeps a loaded gun by her bed after her family has “experienced violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level.”

Isn’t it funny how those who claim to be the most tolerant among us, are actually the most intolerant of all of us?

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots”, as represented by “The Queen of Mean”, Hillary Clinton, telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding on to Traditional American Values and wanting to “Make America Great Again” through the election of Donald J. Trump to the office of the President of the United States of America.

I have heard this kind of garbage before.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some Cheetos-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as the members of Antifa, who seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

Just as we have bore witness to the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

These “spoiled brats”, like Hillary Clinton herself, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as paid and unpaid protestors attempted to stop the Nomination and Installation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as our latest Associate Justice on the Supreme Court Trump’s Campaign Rallies, in an attempt to somehow halt the fulfilling of President Trump’s Campaign Promises in order to stop comeback of America which he has been responsible for and to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party.

If you have ever attempted to debate a Liberal on a Facebook Political Page or a Political Website, they always attempt to present their opinions as facts, with nothing by Political Rhetoric to back them up.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics” by the Democratic Leadership, while promising to somehow restore Barack Hussein Obama’s “share the wealth” failed Domestic Policy, has inspired these self-absorbed Modern American Liberals to act like the Bolsheviks of the Russian Revolution, in an attempt to create a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”. for the sole purpose, as Senator Lindsey Graham pointed out last week, to gain back their political power.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny and the danger of mob rule.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives the protestors of the Presidency of Donald  J. Trump that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, by attempting to destroy a good man through lies and innuendos or by strong-arming and harassing those who refuse to believe the way they do, for the expressed purpose of denying someone their First Amendment Rights.

Our Constitution, in fact, allowed then-Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton to call all of us who believe in Traditional American Values and the preservation of American as the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth “Deplorables”.

However, that same Constitution, which Americans have fought and died for to preserve, also gives me the right to label Hillary’s Self-entitlement-driven condescending Political Ideology for what it actually is:

“HYPOCRITICAL INTOLERANCE”.

FBI/DOJ’s “Media Leak Strategy” Just the Tip of the Iceberg

September 12, 2018

untitled (188)

FoxNews.com reports that

A top Republican congressman and fired FBI agent Peter Strzok’s lawyer traded scathing, no-holds-barred accusations of deliberate dishonesty on Tuesday, one day after newly unearthed text messages showed Strzok discussing a “media leak strategy” with the Justice Department in April 2017.

The texts were first outlined in a letter sent by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Monday. In one of the messages, dated April 10, Strzok tells former FBI attorney Lisa Page, “I had literally just gone to find this phone to tell you I want to talk to you about media leak strategy with DOJ before you go.”

In a revised letter sent Tuesday, Meadows, who serves on the House Oversight Committee, writes that on April 22, Strzok texted that “article is out! Well done, Page.” It is unclear what article Strzok was referring to, or whether it was about the Russia case. In Meadows’ original letter, however, he claimed that exchange occurred on April 12 — one day after The Washington Post published a story titled, “FBI obtained FISA warrant to monitor former Trump adviser Carter Page.”

Meadows’ revised letter also includes a comment from Strzok to Page on April 12, in which Strzok suggests an article about Page’s “namesake” would soon come out. That was an apparent reference to Page, the former Trump adviser whom the FBI surveilled for months after obtaining a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court. During April 2017, there was widespread reporting about Page, his Russia contacts, the FBI’s interest in those contacts and the surveillance warrant that is supposed to remain secret. 

According to Strzok’s lawyer, Meadows wildly misinterpreted those texts when he told Rosenstein that they “should lead a reasonable person to question whether there was a sincere desire to investigate wrongdoing or to place derogatory information in the media to justify a continued probe.”

“The term ‘media leak strategy’ in Mr. Strzok’s text refers to a Department-wide initiative to detect and stop leaks to the media,” Aitan Goelman, Strzok’s attorney, said earlier Tuesday. “The president and his enablers are once again peddling unfounded conspiracy theories to mislead the American people.”

But Meadows made it clear Tuesday he was not buying that explanation.

“If Peter Strzok and his attorney expect people to believe Mr. Strzok didn’t make contact with various news outlets during his time at the FBI, after all the documents and evidence we’ve seen, they are trying to sell a work of fiction,” Meadows said. “The American people aren’t buying his misdirection. Furthermore, if in fact Mr. Strzok did lead an effort to ‘control leaks,’ as his attorney suggests, it’s worth mentioning that such an alleged effort was clearly a failure. It should raise questions whether there was a serious effort at all.”

Strzok, who was a leading investigator in both the Hillary Clinton and Russia probes, was fired in August after the DOJ inspector general excoriated him for a slew of anti-Trump text messages he’d sent on his FBI-issued phone, including one in which he said “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president.

Carter Page has not been charged with any wrongdoing. Heavily redacted documents have since shown that a dossier written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign played a role in obtaining the FISA warrant to surveil him beginning in October 2016.

Documents also have shown that the FBI inaccurately reassured the FISA court on several instances that a Yahoo News article provided independent basis to surveil Page, when it also relied on Steele as its source.

In his original and revised letters, Meadows noted that The Post’s reporting improperly set off “a flurry of articles suggesting connections between President Trump and Russia.” 

At this point, if anyone believes a single work that comes out of the mouth of Peter Strzok or his lawyer, then they should come and see me. I have signed copies of the new book “How to Be a Socialist on $150,000,000” by Jim Carrey to sell them.

Of course, they were leaking to the media.

As I have chronicled, the Deep State Operation to take down Donald J. Trump began when he started campaigning for the Presidency. Why the heck would those responsible end it after he won the election and became the 45th President of the United States of America?

There is so much obvious stuff that we have found out about this operation, including things which seems odd on their own until you put 2 + 2 together.

For example, why did Barack Hussein Obama move into a house with his Girl Friday, Valerie Jarrett, just scant blocks from the White House, instead of leaving town like every other President has in the past?

Why did Special Counsel Robert Mueller hire 17 Democratic Donors as his Special Investigators?

Why has Mueller gone silent and Obama reappeared into the national spotlight with the Midterm Elections just a couple of months away?

Why have Robert Woodward and the New York Times published a book and an op ed using stories from “unnamed sources” as to how awful the Trump White House is right before the Midterms?

In my humble opinion, Congressman Meadows is exactly right.

Average Americans remain extremely skeptical concerning the actions taken against Trump by the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Americans between the coasts have always believed that Mueller and his “17 Angry Democrats” are nothing but a political lynch mob, tools of the Democratic Party.

And speaking of….Democrats ( you thought I was going to say “tools” didn’t you?) Former President Barack Hussein Obama was not well received at all by average Americans with his ego-driven diatribe against President Trump and the Economic Recovery which America is experiencing.

In summary, what I trying to say is what a lot of us have been thinking and saying for well over a year and a half:

The Democrats, in conjunction with Career Washington Bureaucrats working in various aspects of government, including the DOJ and the FBI, have been performing surveillance and working against Donald J. Trump, both when he was a candidate and throughout his Presidency. And, they were following orders from President Obama in order to secure the Presidency for Hillary Clinton.

As Obama’s Former Pastor, Reverend wright would say,

This whole Deep State Operation’s Chickeeens are coming home…to roost.

It’s time for President Trump to get the plunger and to drain this part of the Swamp.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

FBI Russia Probe Mole Stefan Halper at Center of DOD Complaint Alleging Government Contractor Abuses

August 30, 2018

stefan-halper-e1526695983400

“[Stephen] Halper, who assisted the FBI in the Russia investigation, appears to also have significant ties to the Russian government, as well as sources connected directly to President Vladimir Putin.” Now, this is new.  Halper is part of the MI6 bunch in the U.K. that partnered with the FBI and agents from Harvard and Yale.  This is the Oxford-Cambridge, Harvard-Yale connection with the intelligence apparatus of both countries.  What it all means here so that Halper just another link from the Clinton campaign to the Russians in creating all of this phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock ‘n’ roll stuff on Trump, including the dossier. – Rush Limbaugh 8/28/18

FoxNews.com reports that

The professor who reportedly assisted the FBI’s Russia probe as a confidential source is at the center of a Defense Department whistleblower’s complaint that alleges government contractor abuses, as well as excessive payments with taxpayer dollars, according to interviews and documents reviewed by Fox News.

The complaint was filed by attorney Sean Bigley on behalf of Pentagon lawyer Adam Lovinger. Earlier this month, conservative watchdog Judicial Watch announced it was suing the Defense Department on behalf of Lovinger to force the release of emails and other electronic messages after Lovinger had his security clearance suspended.

“[The complaint] pertained to the misuse of contractors by the Department of Defense, specifically what he perceived as the use of contractors to conduct foreign relations in violation of U.S. law, as well as … gross waste and excessive expenditures that were being lavished on these contractors to do very little work,” Bigley said.

Bigley, who is representing Lovinger pro bono, said his client flagged the concerns about contractors — including Stefan Halper, the professor — as early as 2016, to Lovinger’s leadership at the Office of Net Assessment (ONA), which is like an internal Pentagon think tank. He said Lovinger was specifically concerned Halper was being used by the ONA to “conduct foreign relations in violation of U.S. law — specifically he was being sent out unsupervised around the globe to meet with foreign diplomats and report back” his findings.

In May, Halper was the subject of multiple media reports linking him to the Russia probe, with The Washington Post describing the academic as “the FBI source who assisted the Russia investigation and is at the center of a standoff between congressional Republicans and the Justice Department … a well-connected veteran of past GOP administrations who convened senior intelligence officials for seminars at the University of Cambridge in England.” The complaint was first filed in September 2017 and was updated after the Halper reports.

An email reviewed by Fox News shows that Halper wrote to the ONA in October 2016 about a series of upcoming engagements scheduled in a foreign country. While the nation’s name is redacted, the email shows Halper lined up “14 meetings … with various parts of the political and military community,” and a specific appointment to consult with a brigadier whose name is also withheld.

Lovinger told his leadership that he was concerned Halper had crossed the line into diplomacy and foreign relations, and it would cause further damage to their office. “[P]rofessor-led talks harmed [Office of Net Assessment’s] reputation among segments of the [redacted] national security elite we encountered, including some very senior [redacted] officials in [redacted] government,” Lovinger’s email continued, “[redacted] has had to spend a lot of political capital to get the [redacted] government to take ONA seriously again, and we’re still not out of that hold yet.”

The Code of Federal Regulations, Subpart 7.5, called “Inherently Governmental Functions,” states that contractors are prohibited from taking on U.S. government functions, such as the “conduct of criminal investigations,” the “command of military forces,” and “the conduct of foreign relations.”

A review of government spending records shows that Halper was paid more than $600,000 for two contracts in 2015 and 2016 for academic papers related to Russia. In the 2015 paper titled, “The Russia-China relationship: The Impact on the United States’ Security Interests,” Halper listed more than three dozen sources, including General V.I Trubnikov, a former head of Russian intelligence, as well as former CIA Director Michael Hayden.

A similar contract, reviewed by Fox News, awarded to a different academic for a paper on Chinese approaches to war and conflict was granted much less, about $130,000 in taxpayer funds. “Mr. Halper was officially contracted to prepare academic studies on issues of U.S. foreign relations,” Bigley said. “When you compare the amount that he was paid to the work, we believe that the discrepancy was the result of the other work Mr. Halper was performing for the DoD.”

After Halper’s name emerged in media reports, Lovinger’s attorney said he offered to provide more documents to strengthen their formal September 2017 complaint. 

You DO remember the “media reports” from last May, don’t you, gentle readers?

If not, please allow me to shine the light on Professor Stefan Halper.

Last May, NYPost.com reported that

Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI.

Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations.

The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap Trump campaign aides. Papodopoulous has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, while Page was the subject of a federal surveillance warrant.

…The Halper revelation also shows the Obama administration’s FBI began prying into the opposing party’s presidential nominee earlier than it previously admitted.

Halper’s sit-downs with Page reportedly started in early July 2016, undermining fired FBI Director James Comey’s previous claim that the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign began at the end of that month

To call Stefan Halper a “Washington Insider” and a member of “The Deep State” is an understatement.

This guy’s curriculum vitae reads like a Who’s Who of the American Political Scene from the Reagan Years until now.

According to The Institute for World Politics, where he is a Research Professor…

From 2001 to the present:, he has been employed at Cambridge University as a Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies where he also serves as Director of American Studies.

His work in the field of Politics is a lot more interesting that his accomplishments in Academia

Halper served in the White House (1971-1977) during the Nixon and Ford Administrations.

1971-1973 White House Domestic Council;
1973-74 White House Office of Management and Budge. Assist. Director, Management and Evaluation Division
1974- January 20, 1977 White House Office of the Chief of Staff. Assistant to the Chief of Staff . (responsibilities included summary and analysis of foreign developments and security issues)
1977-79 Legislative Assistant to Senator William Roth (R-Del.) and Special Counsel to the Joint Economic Committee.
1979-80  National Director, Policy Development. George H.W. Bush. Presidential campaign
1980  National Director, Policy Coordination, Reagan-Bush 1980 (presidential campaign)
1981-1984 Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Politico-Military Affairs.
(Portfolio included China-US relations, Taiwan, non-proliferation, technology transfer, unconventional warfare.)
1984-1990 Chairman and majority shareholder:

The Palmer National Bank, Washington, D.C.
The National Bank of Northern Virginia, Leesburg, Va.
The George Washington National Bank, Alexandria, Va.
1990-2000 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Halper, Roosevelt and Brown. 

1984-2001 Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice.

With a list of accomplishments like those above, and the work he did for the Obama Administration’s Department of Defense, Halper made the perfect “mole” to be embedded in the Trump Presidential Campaign. And as Rush said in the quote at the beginning of this post, Harper is another link tying the Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, the Clintons, and the rest of the phony FISA Dossier-related stuff all together.

This “contractor” evidently pulled a lot of weight in the previous Administration.

So, what does all of this mean?

It means that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the Department of Justice and President Obama “read in”, embedded a spy in the opposition party’s Presidential Campaign in order to sabotage their operations, thus insuring the victory of his hand-picked successor and retaining the seat of power for his political party. Of course, according to the raving Liberals at the New York Times, that was done to “protect” Trump. And, if you buy that, I have stock in the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Economics to sell you.

Obama and his “Deep State” Operatives made Nixon look like an amateur.

Trump Approval Rating Holds Steady, Despite “Legal Investigations” and Fake News Stories

August 27, 2018

deranged-600-la

The Washington Post “reports” that

Whether the president faces legal peril is not clear, but his presidency is at a precarious point. Recent polls suggest his repeated attacks on Mueller for leading a “witch hunt” have lost their effectiveness. And if the Democrats win a majority in at least one house of Congress in the midterm elections, now less than 10 weeks away, they would gain the power to investigate or even impeach.

“The whole reason he is freaking out is he can’t get rid of any of this,” said a longtime adviser to Trump, who, like others interviewed for this story, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House dynamics.

The president’s sense of betrayal came through last week when he derided cooperating witnesses as “flippers.” “Everything’s wonderful and then they get 10 years in jail and they – they flip on whoever the next highest one is, or as high as you can go,” he told Fox News. In contrast, he tweeted that his “brave” former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, who was convicted last week of bank fraud and tax fraud, had “refused to ‘break.’ “

Trump has also focused his ire on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom he has repeatedly and publicly attacked for his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. White House aides have explained to him that firing Sessions would not end the probe, but he remains livid, officials said, particularly after Sessions responded last week with a statement declaring that “the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations.”

The Trump Organization declined to comment for this story. The White House referred questions to Trump’s outside lawyers, who also declined to comment for this story.

And, with good reason.

This Fake News Story is nothing but wish-casting on the part of its writers.

Laura Ingraham’s Lifezette.com reports that

President Donald Trump’s approval rating remains almost unchanged following a week brimming with bad news for his former personal lawyer and former presidential campaign chairman, according to back-to-back NBC News/Wall Street Journal surveys released Sunday.

“We’ve had this enormous series of events, and these numbers don’t change very much,” said GOP pollster Bill McInturff, according to the WSJ.

McInturff and Democratic pollster Peter Hart worked on the two surveys in the days before and after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen struck a plea deal and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted on eight of 18 counts.

“For the 2018 Democratic strategy, the Manafort and Cohen convictions represent a fool’s gold opportunity rather than a silver bullet solution,” Hart said, pointing to the upcoming midterm elections in November, according to the WSJ.

The first poll found that 46 percent of American voters approved of Trump’s presidential performance while 51 percent disapproved. The follow-up poll found that 44 percent of American voters approved while 52 percent disapproved.

News of Manafort’s convictions and Cohen’s plea deal broke August 21. The first poll of 900 U.S. voters was conducted from August 18-22 and the second survey of 600 voters took place between August 22-25.

Although mainstream media members and the president’s regular critics immediately pounced on the Cohen-Manafort news as proof that Trump was heading closer to impeachment proceedings and permeated the news cycle with their speculation, Trump’s popularity remained virtually unchanged.

As the late Jim Nabors would say as Gomer Pyle,

“Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!”

As I wrote on Saturday, average Americans can recognize a political railroading job when they see one.

The Democratic Party continues to overplay their hand, grossly overestimating their own intelligence while underestimating the intelligence of us Americans who live between the coasts in the Heartland of America.

You would have thought that they would have learned not to do that after their plans for a “Democratic Socialist Paradise” were obliterated on the night of November 8, 2016, when we “forgotten Americans” MADE them remember who we were.

But, no.

Modern American Liberals, especially the Far Left Democratic Party, view themselves as “The Smartest People in the Room”

You can’t tell them a thing. They already know it all.

They thought beyond a shadow of a doubt that if they came up with a cockamamie story about Trump colluding with the Russians to sabotage the 2016 Presidential Election in order to defeat their “chosen one”, Hillary Clinton, that the American People would buy it hook, line, and sinker. All they thought they had to do was get a Special Counsel appointed who had political ties to both Clinton and Obama and who would, in turn, appoint Democratic Donors as his “investigators”.

Then that Special Counsel would be given free rein to broaden the scope of his “investigation”, charging everyone who ever even knew Trump with questionable crimes in order to flip them so that they could get to their real target, President Donald J. Trump.

And so far, their plan has been sort of successful…except for one little problem: The Americans who elected Donald J. Trump are still supporting the President, making the Democrats look like fools and their “not-so-silent” coup attempt appear feckless and nothing but Political Shenanigans or as Trump himself describes it, “A WITCH HUNT”.

So, what’s next?

Next, the Special Counsel and his “17 Angry Democrats” will enlist their brethren in the Southern District of New York to go after Trump’s Organization and his family.

Because, as the Democratic Party proved at least of couple of times during the Obama Administration, if they can’t beat our candidates or our traditional Americans Faith and Vlaues,  they will use Liberals working in our Legal System to tear them down.

A strong, prosperous America and the safety and prosperity of average Americans do not matter to the self-righteous Power Brokers of the Far Left Democratic Party.

Regaining their power in Washington, D.C. does.

Manafort/Cohen/Mueller…It’s All Still Just About Hillary Losing

August 23, 2018

cohen-trump

The one thing that hasn’t changed here, the one thing that all of this is about is forcing Donald Trump out of office because the Democrats lost an election. There are no crimes that have occurred here that involve the president of the United States starting with Russian collusion, moving on to obstruction of justice, and even this stuff now with the porn star, Stormy Daniels, Kara McDougal, and the stuff with Paul Manafort, none of it, none of it is going to result in criminal charges against Donald Trump. None of is gonna result in high crimes and misdemeanors.What it’s all gonna lead to is the forthcoming blistering report from the special counsel, Robert Mueller, who remains blind to the actual crimes that have taken place in this entire sordid story. There is clearly now a double standard, a dual system of justice at the highest levels of our Department of Justice. You can see it in the way the DOJ and the FBI exonerated the Democrat presidential candidate when real crimes were taking place for years and years right under their noses, crimes they perhaps even participated in.

Those crimes, because they involved the Democrat nominee, were exonerated. The Democrat nominee herself was exonerated. You go to the Trump campaign, the Republican, the opponent, where there aren’t any crimes, there wasn’t any collusion with Russia, there hasn’t been any obstruction of justice, and yet this is where the allegation of crimes is occurring? And it’s occurring with people who are peripheral to the original charge of all this — Russian collusion, stealing the election?

What is actually happening now is the losers of the election attempting to steal it back. And that’s what all of this yesterday means, it’s why it all happened, and it is what it continues to add up to. The people who lost the election simply can’t accept it and are doing everything they can to overturn that election result. – Rush Limbaugh, 8/22/18

Rush is exactly right.

Did you pay any attention to the Democratic Talking Points being spewed out on all of the cable News Channels yesterday?

The Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, were doing everything they possibly could to drive President Trump out of office, which, if you step back and look at it, as Rush says, is the same thing that they have been doing since before Trump was even inaugurated.

The Liberal Pundits are desperately attempting to compare what is going on to Watergate and are attempting to somehow, someway make whatever they are accusing Trump of doing into some sort of impeachable offense.

Where were these Paragons of Virtue when Hillary Clinton was sharing top secret e-mails on a private server while she was running a pay-for-play scheme out of the Clinton Foundation, selling access to foreign countries while she was Secretary of State under Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm)?

Why aren’t they investigating “Spygate” and the Clinton-funded FISA Dossier, including the involvement of Clintonistas Cody Shearer and Richard Blumenthal?

Regarding Watergate, the only tape recording going on was that of Michael Cohen’s and that was an abuse of Attorney-Client Privilege.

In this American’s opinion, everything that the Democrats, their Deep State Operatives, and Special Counsel Mueller and his “17 Angry Democrats” have accomplished by all of their efforts to bring down President Donald J. Trump is to cause me to support him that much more.

This all smells like the sort of dirty political “shenanigans” that Sam “Mooney” Giancana and the Chicago Branch of the Mafia used to use when they could not overtly “take out” a politician who would not “play along” with their wishes.

In case you did not know, “Mooney” and the “Boys” delivered Illinois for John F. Kennedy in the 1960 President Election, supposedly after Kennedy Supporter Frank Sinatra asked him to.

But, I digress.

As long as Mueller is allowed to operate outside of the scope of his original mission, he will continue to interfere in the Presidency of Donald J. Trump on behalf of “The Resistance”.

If the President does wait until after the Midterms to relieve Mueller and the “17 Angry Democrats” of their duties, they will not doubt be a part of a purging of the DOJ and FBI that, alluding back to the Mafia, will resemble the activities which went on during the Baptismal Ceremony in “The Godfather”…in a strictly political way, of course.

And that, in itself, would be very entertaining.

Clinton Ally McAuliffe Calls for Trump Impeachment…Ignores Own GreenTech Automotive Scam

August 13, 2018

greentech

He’s blowing up their very restrictive class distinctions. He’s blowing up the way they talk about things inside the Beltway. He’s blowing up diplomacy. He’s blowing up foreign relations. And it’s being done in a way these people can’t figure out. For the life of them, they can’t understand straight talk. To them, straight talk is thuggery, it’s insulting, and it’s mysterious. And so Trump is like an invader, an alien, and he’s gotta go. – Rush Limbaugh, “The Rush Limbaugh Radio Program”, 7/19/18

FoxNews.com reports that

Another powerhouse of the left is questioning whether President Trump should be impeached.

“I think that’s something we ought to look at,” former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman who helped run presidential campaigns of Bill and Hillary Clinton, told CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.

McAuliffe, rumored to be considering a 2020 run for president, disproved of Trump’s special relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“If President Clinton or President Obama had gone to Helsinki and done what President Trump had done, you would already have impeachment hearings going on,” he told host Jake Tapper, as Politico noted.

“There has to be a reason, Jake, why he is over there acting the way he acts about Putin, then inviting them here, and then saying he may go over there,” McAuliffe added. “Do not forget that they came into the 2016 election, they came in and tried to destroy the greatest democracy in the world.”

McAuliffe is the latest in the Democratic establishment questioning its own actions.

Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer is the founder of the Need To Impeach campaign, which is aimed squarely at Trump.

The billionaire said earlier this month that while Democratic lawmakers tell him in private about their willingness to back his campaign, many won’t take any public stance.

“Their message to me and the 5.5 million Americans demanding Donald Trump’s impeachment is that it’s bad politics, it’s off message and it will galvanize the Republicans.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for example, has suggested impeachment could harm Democrats’ future electoral prospects.

McAuliffe also told CNN that the left ought to focus more on jobs and education: “It’s about the values, what you stand for.”

He added: “But our message as a party ought to be, like I had in Virginia, how do you grow an economy? …  How do you invest in education?”

Nice glass house you have there, Former Governor McAuliffe.

Back in May of 2016, Foxnews.com reported that

Federal officials are investigating whether Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s 2013 campaign accepted illegal campaign contributions, sources familiar with the investigation confirmed Monday to Fox News.

The Democratic governor and Clinton ally is the target of a Justice Department investigation into whether he violated campaign finance laws.

The probe, first reported by CNN, involves a $120,000 donation from Chinese businessman Wang Wenliang through his U.S. businesses. U.S. election law prohibits foreign nationals to donate to political races.

McAuliffe’s attorney, Marc Elias, said in a statement his office was not aware of the investigation, but would cooperate if contacted by federal officials.

“We cannot confirm the CNN report. Neither the Governor nor his former campaign has knowledge of this matter, but as reported, contributions to the campaign from Mr. Wang were completely lawful,” Elias said. “The Governor will certainly cooperate with the government if he is contacted about it.”

A spokesman for Wang told CNN the businessman holds permanent resident status in the U.S.

Wang also has been a donor to the Clinton foundation, pledging $2 million, CNN reported.

McAuliffe now becomes the second consecutive Virginia governor to be investigated by the Justice Department.

McAuliffe’s predecessor in the governor’s mansion, Republican Bob McDonnell, was convicted on federal corruption charges but has appealed his conviction to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Before winning his gubernatorial campaign in 2013 over Republican Ken Cuccinelli, McAuliffe made his name in national Democratic politics as a prolific, well-connected fundraiser with close ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Although McAuliffe is close to the Clintons, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press that the investigation of McAuliffe is unconnected to a separate FBI investigation looking at the legality of private email servers that Hillary Clinton used while serving as secretary of state.

Last year, McAuliffe’s political action committee, Common Good Va., returned a $25,000 donation from a company with ties to Angola’s state-owned oil company after The Associated Press raised questions about its legality. Federal law prohibits campaigns at any level from receiving money from outside the U.S.

McAuliffe’s international business connections also came under scrutiny prior to his gubernatorial campaign. He served as chairman of GreenTech Automotive, a company that hoped to bring supercompact automobiles to the U.S. market.

The company attracted hundreds of thousands of dollars in foreign investment, in part through a federal program that granted visas to investors who met certain job-creation thresholds.

McAuliffe resigned from the company in December 2012. GreenTech, which received millions of dollars in economic incentives from state and local officials to build a plant in Mississippi, faced criticism for falling well below expectations in production and job creation.

Oh, by the way, in a related story about Hil and Bill, the FBI has transported two planeloads of documents from the Clinton Library in Little Rock, Arkansas back to D.C> as a part of an ongoing investigation.

Now about Green Tech Automotive.

Sitting here in “KJ’s Kastle” in Northwest Mississippi, I had a bird’s-eye view of the whole unseemly mess.

Again, in May of 2016, the Memphis CBS Affiliate, WREG, filed the following report…

ROBINSONVILLE, Miss. — They promised jobs — and lots of them — but after accepting millions in taxpayer money, a Tunica County car manufacturer is refusing to say how many jobs were actually created.

GreenTech Automotive got a $3 million loan from the state of Mississippi in 2011 to build the Robinsonville facility with the promise that they would create 350 jobs. Close to $1.9 million was loaned to Tunica County to support the project.

But now the Mississippi Development Authority said GreenTech has fallen short of the promised 350 jobs.

“If we pay our taxes for it, it should be here,” said Tunica County resident Billy Jackson.

WREG called and emailed the spokesman listed on GreenTech’s website and never heard back.

Tuesday afternoon, we dropped by the Robinsonville plant, where we were promptly greeted by a manager.

“Right now, we’re building cars here, and we don’t talk to any kind of press,” said Terey Agner, manager of GreenTech’s plant.

Agnes refused to say how many people the plant employed.

“No, no, I can’t do anything,” said Agner.

We received a similar response from the Tunica County Chamber of Commerce, which hailed GreenTech’s arrival when it opened its plant in 2014.

“My only statement is that GreenTech has people employed and they are working,” said Lyn Arnold, CEO of the Chamber.

“These companies that come in and expect to get tax breaks and make promises about jobs, they need to keep their word,” said Brooks Taylor, publisher of the Tunica Times.

Taylor has tracked GreenTech’s progress since 2009, when they promised their Robinsonville plant would create 1,500 jobs.

They later revised that figure to 350.

“There’s nothing here. $5 million could have did a whole lot more to the town, to the city and it went to one job, one company,” said Jackson.

In addition to the added jobs, GreenTech had said it would also produce 30,000 cars per year at its plant.

We don’t know if GreenTech is currently meeting that goal.

GreenTech’s Plant in Robinsonville, Mississippi closed its doors in January of 2017.

The company itself filed for bankruptcy in February of the same year.

The company known as GreenTech Automotive was a shady entity from its very beginning.

The Washington Free Beacon presented the following five points to remember about GreenTech Automotive, in an article published in August of 2013…

1. GreenTech fell short on job promises multiple times

McAuliffe told Virginians in 2009 that the new car company would create 1,500 jobs for the state.

McAuliffe did not tell Virginians that the company was also in talks with the state of Mississippi, and would soon opt to move its operations there.

However, things have not panned out with GreenTech in Mississippi either.

McAuliffe projected that GreenTech would be churning out 10,000 cars in its first year and employ thousands.

At this point it is unclear whether GreenTech is producing any jobs. Further informationBelow.]

GreenTech is still operating at what was supposed to be a temporary facility in Horn Lake, Miss.

Although McAuliffe claimed that ground was broken at the company’s planed permanent facility, local investigators found that there was nothing but overgrown grass covering the plot on which it is supposed to be located.

2. GreenTech relies on a foreign “visa-for-sale” investment scheme

At the center of GreenTech’s fundraising operation is the controversial EB-5 visa program.

The program allows foreign nationals to get a visa if they invest $500,000 to $1 million in a project or business that provides U.S. jobs.

GreenTech partners with Gulf Coast Funds Management (GCFM), a company that is authorized by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to collect EB-5 investments for GreenTech.

GCFM has collected at least $45.5 million from foreign investors for GreenTech through the program. Anthony Rodham, a close friend of McAuliffe who also happens to be the brother of Hillary Clinton, runs GCFM.

Many have been skeptical about whether the visa program was being used properly.

Virginia officials labeled the company a “visa-for-sale scheme” and feared that doing business with GreenTech could eventually “give the Commonwealth a black eye.”

3. GreenTech is being investigated by the SEC

Both GreenTech and GCFM are targets of a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation.

Although the details of the investigation are still unclear, both companies have confirmed that the SEC subpoenaed them for documents in May of this year.

Documents made available by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) make clear that the investigation centers around the use of the EB-5 visa program.

McAuliffe, who quietly resigned from the company in December, claims that he had no knowledge of any pending investigation at the time of his resignation.

4. GreenTech is at the center of a Homeland Security investigation

GreenTech and McAuliffe have also found themselves involved in a Department of Homeland Security investigation.

USCIS director Alejandro Mayorkas allegedly assisted Rodham and GCFM win approval for an EB-5 visa application, even after the application and the subsequent appeal were rejected.

Documents revealed that Rodham directly contacted Mayorkas and urged him to approve pending visa applications.

Concerns were also raised that Mayorkas expedited the approval of applicants that were held for “fraud/national security.”

5. GreenTech’s parent company is based in the British Virgin Islands

GreenTech is owned by Capital Wealth Holdings, an investment company incorporated in the tax haven, the British Virgin Islands.

GreenTech president and Chinese businessman, Charles Wang, owns the investment company.

Wang is an expert on the EB-5 visa program and has coached other U.S. companies on how to effectively make use of it.

Of course, Terry McAuliffe saw things differently.

According to McAuliffe, in an op ed piece he wrote at the time for the Washington Post

I’ve not been contacted in any way by those conducting the investigation and have no knowledge of it beyond what has been reported. From what has been reported, the investigation appears to be looking at a document allegedly prepared for potential investors — something I was not responsible for as chairman.

Republicans have also criticized the company for employing only about 100 people. Of course, that’s about 100 jobs that would not have existed if we had not taken a risk on this company. The company has taken longer to develop than many people expected, including me, but taking a risk on an innovative company is a critical part of the American system, and most business leaders I speak with agree that it’s not uncommon for a company to face challenges meeting its goals.

GreenTech was started because those involved invested their own money in high-tech manufacturing. In this case, it was manufacturing a small electric vehicle that had already won an annual award. Like every start-up during the Great Recession, the company faced headwinds. Those included a bureaucratic slowdown in a bipartisan visa program known as EB-5, which brings capital from overseas to create jobs here in the United States for many companies. I joined a variety of business and political leaders from both parties who expressed frustration to officials at the agency overseeing the program.

A further headwind is that manufacturing isn’t easy, and manufacturing a new kind of car is even harder. The company has invested in research and development, testing and safety to perfect the design. While Nissan worked to develop electric vehicles for about 18 years before launching the Leaf, GreenTech made progress in just a few years during a more challenging economic time. If GreenTech succeeds, it will be a step forward for innovative manufacturing.

I have an interest — both personally and financially — in the company succeeding, and I believe that it will. As a minority shareholder, my return will be determined by the success of a long process of testing, manufacturing, marketing and selling vehicles all over the world.

Like his dear friend, Hillary Clinton, Terry McAuliffe has a history of promising the world and delivering squat.

Democrats incessantly proclaim that they are the party of the average American.

The “temporary” GreenTech Automotive Plant, which was supposed to provide a lot of jobs here in Northwest Mississippi, sits just a couple of miles down the road from where I am writing this post. The fact is, according to both current and former employees, fewer than 100 workers produced no more than one car every two or three days…a legacy of over-promising and under-delivering, Just like the Economic Policies put in place from President Barack Hussein Obama and the Democratic Congress.

Hopefully, those who still work for the cause of justice within the DOJ and the FBI will indict Hillary Clinton and all of those who profited under scams like McAuliffe’s GreenTech Automotive.

Relative morality and situational ethics of the Obama Administration  and the Democrats in Congress sent America heading toward a brick wall of economic Despair and mediocrity, like Crash Test Dummies in the commercials we have seen for decades on television.

Thank the Lord President Trump hit the brakes.

Trump Legal Team Sends Letter to Mueller About Proposed Interview- What’s in It?

August 9, 2018

mueller-conspiracy-600-li

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump’s legal team said Wednesday they have responded to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s request for an interview with the president as part of the probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

“We have responded in writing to the latest proposal from the Office of Special Counsel regarding its request to interview the President,” said Jay Sekulow, an attorney for the president. “It is not appropriate, at this time, to comment publicly about the content of that response.”

Rudy Giuliani, another lawyer for Trump, in a statement reiterated calls to end the Russia probe.

“Millions of pages of documents along with testimony from dozens of witnesses have been provided,” he said. “We’re re-stating what we have been saying for months: it is time for the Office of Special Counsel to conclude its inquiry without further delay.”

Sources have told Fox News that the letter would largely turn down any Trump-Mueller meeting that would include any questions related to obstruction of justice.

Earlier Monday, Giuliani would not go into the details of their offer, but he told Fox News: “It’s not a refusal, but at the same time, it’s not a completely unreasonable position. I can see a way in which [Mueller] may agree with it.”

Giuliani acknowledged that Mueller could try to subpoena the president if an agreement for an interview cannot be worked out. The president’s attorneys have repeatedly stated that they will fight any attempt to subpoena Trump.

Talks between Trump’s lawyers and the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election have restarted in recent days, and it is not clear a deal will be struck.

Trump has publicly expressed a desire to be interviewed, but his lawyers have repeatedly objected to the investigators’ proposals.

Trump attorneys say both sides have exchanged proposals for conditions for such a Trump interview.

Okay. So what was in the letter that the Trump Legal Team sent to Special Counsel Robert Mueller?

Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz has an idea…

On “America’s Newsroom,” Dershowitz said that Trump’s lawyers will set a series of conditions that will legally protect the president going forward, which Mueller will not agree to.

“They’re going to make him an offer he can’t accept,” Dershowitz said, arguing that Trump’s team wants Mueller to subpoena the president, which he says will end months from now “in a draw.”

Dershowitz added that Trump won’t be able to be questioned about why he fired former FBI Director James Comey, but could certainly be questioned about the 2016 meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower.

“I don’t see a crime, at this point, that Mueller can come up with,” he said. “I don’t think you can obstruct justice by exercising your Article II powers under the Constitution.”

He said that it’s “awfully hard” to show Trump’s testimony is actually needed, saying that Mueller could be attempting to capture Trump in a perjury trap.

If the President and his legal team did follow the course which Professor Dershowitz outlined, they have put Mueller between a rock and a hard place.

All along, Mueller has been itching to get President Trump in front of him, in hopes that somehow, someway, he could get the President to make a mistake and contradict himself, so that Mueller could file a perjury charge against him.

And, as the Professor stated, it is going to be hard to show that Trump’s testimony is actually needed, as absolutely no evidence of criminal activities has reared its ugly head in all these many months of Mueller’s and the “17 Angry Democrats'” Russia Probe.

Collusion in itself is not a crime.

Sales Managers and Salesmen on Use Car Lots “collude” several times every day.

President Barack Hussein Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “colluded” on the night of that 4 Americans were massacred on the ground of the U.S. Embassy Compound at Benghazi, Libya. They “colluded” to do nothing at all. and later. they and their staff, including Susan Rice, “colluded” and decided to blame it all on a video which no one had ever watched.

Later, failed Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton “colluded” with John Podesta and decided not to appear at her “victory” party, leaving her loyal voters to suffer their tears of anguish alone.

So, if no crimes have been committed, as Professor Dershowitz, who happens to be a Liberal, said, then why in the world are the Special Counsel and his band of Angry Democrats still expanding their scope of investigation…on OUR dime?

Hopefully, within the next week or so, Mueller will realize that his Quixotic Quest to drive President Trump from office has failed and he will submit his findings and bring this whole embarrassing exercise in futility to an ignominious end.

Then, he and his cadre of Democratic Donors can volunteer on the political campaign bandwagon of Bernie Sanders and that little girl from New York who wants everybody taken care of from cradle to grave via “Democratic Socialism”, but has no clue as to where the money will come from.

If they are going to spend money doing something useless, at least they would be spending their own for a change.

MSM Upset Over Crowd’s Reaction to CNN’s Acosta at Trump Rally…What Goes Around…

August 2, 2018

APP-080118-Trump-Tampa-Acosta

I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy. – Jim Acosta, Trump Rally, Tampa Florida, on Twitter

FoxNews.com reports that

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked Wednesday about whether the president condones his supporters’ harassment of CNN reporter Jim Acosta.

The Daily Mail’s David Martosko asked whether Trump believes it’s wrong for his supporters to be “menacing” toward journalists.

Acosta tweeted out video from Trump’s rally Tuesday night in Tampa, which showed people shouting “You suck!” and making obscene gestures toward him.

He wrote that he was worried the “hostility” spurred by Trump could eventually result in someone getting hurt.

Sanders responded by saying that the president doesn’t support violence against anyone or anything.

“We fully support a free press, but there also comes a high level of responsibility with that.”

She followed by criticizing reporters for “routinely” disclosing classified information and government secrets, arguing it has put “lives in danger.”

“Unfortunately, it’s now standard to abandon common-sense ethical practices. This is a two-way street,” Sanders said.

Martosko responded that Acosta was not “broadcasting state secrets,” but Trump supporters tried to prevent him from doing his job by shouting at him while he was on the air. 

Sanders responded by saying, “While we certainly support freedom of the press, we also support freedom of speech and we think that those things go hand-in-hand.”

“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” – Newton’s Third Law

The arrogance of the Liberal Main Stream Media grew exponentially during the 8 long years of the reign of King Barack The First.

Their egos were fed by the fact that they were given favored status during the Obama Administration because they were fellow travelers on the road to a “Socialist Paradise”.

They fully expected to continue to enjoy that favored status, as they were 100% certain that Hillary Clinton was the heir apparent who would continue the march toward “Democratic Socialism” that Obama began.

However, a funny thing happen on the Road to a Socialist Paradise.

Average Americans, living between the coasts, elected a Capitalist as the 45th President of the United States of America, a decision which has proven economically beneficial to all of us here in the Heartland, but not beneficial at all for the Main Stream Media.

One year and seven months into the enormously successful presidency of Donald J. Trump, the Main Steam Media are in the throes of a psychosis brought on by desperation.

Everything that they have tried to throw at President Trump to end his presidency on behalf of their masters in the Democratic Party Hierarchy has failed miserably.

Remember Stormy Daniels?

Their enormous sense of self-righteousness, brought on by their massive Liberal egos, has prevented them from understanding the depth of disgust which average Americans feel toward them and their unrelenting attacks on President Trump, which mostly consist of Fake News Stories provided by “Unnamed Sources”.

Jim Acosta received a “Reality Check” at Tuesday Night’s Trump Rally in Tampa, Florida.

One, which from all accounts, he and his fellow members of the Vanguard of the Democratic Party known as the Main Steam Media, are meeting with their usual condescension toward us members of the “Great Unwashed” who support President Trump.

That’s fine.

As their ratings continue to tank and Trump’s Popularity Poll Numbers continue to rise, come this November, average Americans will once again experience the glorious Schadenfreude of watching Liberal News Anchors and Political Pundits meltdown as a sea of red envelopes the continental United States of America as Republicans strengthen their presence in the House of Representatives and in the Senate.

And, there won’t be a darn thing that “the Smartest People in the Room” can do about it.

Trump Tweets About Mueller’s Conflicts of Interest…Why Those are Just the Tip of the Iceberg

July 30, 2018

Trump-Mueller

TheHill.com reports that

President Trump on Sunday renewed his accusations that special counsel Robert Mueller has “conflicts of interest” in his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, citing a previous business dispute between the two men.

In a sequence of tweets attacking the special counsel’s credibility, Trump noted that he and Mueller had “a very nasty & contentious business relationship.”

Trump has alleged on multiple occasions via Twitter that Mueller has unspecified conflicts of interest, however, Sunday’s tweet marks the first time he’s elaborated beyond such accusations.

The president seemingly confirmed a New York Times report from January that said Trump attempted to fire Mueller in June 2017 over alleged conflicts of interest.

The Times reported that Trump listed three conflicts he believed should disqualify Mueller: A dispute over fees at Trump’s National Golf Club in Virginia, his interview for FBI director before being named special counsel, and Mueller’s previous employment at a law firm that represents Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Trump reportedly backed off his demand after White House counsel Don McGahn refused Trump’s order and threatened to quit.

Multiple reports indicated Trump interviewed Mueller for the vacancy, but it’s unclear if Trump turned him down for the position before he was named special counsel in May 2017.

Trump’s accusations about Mueller’s alleged conflicts of interest came amid a string of tweets in which he claimed the special counsel’s team is filled with Democrats.

Trump also falsely claimed Mueller’s probe was sparked by the so-called Steele dossier, and questioned why the special counsel was not investigating Democrats.

The president has attacked Mueller’s investigation with increasing regularity in recent months, frequently decrying it as a “witch hunt” and a “hoax” in an attempt to discredit Mueller and his probe.

So now seventeen members of Mueller’s Investigative Team are Democrat. But, 13…16…17…what’s a few more Democrats in Mueller’s lynch mob, anyway?

Mueller and his cadre of Liberal SS Troops have made it their mission to undermine Trump through the continuance of their Dog and Pony Show, which they euphemistically called “an investigation”.

The more that Mueller and his troops have insisted that they are non-biased, the more information has come forth that they have been and still are holdovers from the Clinton Administration, working as Deep State Operatives to do unto Trump as Brutus did unto Caesar.

They are proving themselves to be nothing but Trump Haters with no actual evidence of any kind that President Trump “colluded” with the Russians.

Several members of Mueller’s Team worked for the same Law Firm, WilmerHale, a huge Donor to the Democratic Party.

Anyone who has ever worked for the Law Firm of WilmerHale has donated to the Democratic Party…including Special Counsel Robert Mueller!

Courtesy of OpenSecrets.org, here is a history of WilmerHale’s Political Donations from 1990-2018.

If you look at the Total Percentage of Political Contributions made by the Law Firm that Robert Mueller and several of his “investigators” worked for, you will notice that over the last 28 years, Wilmer Hale has donated approximately 8.5 million dollars to individual political candidates with 66% of those funds going to Democrats and only 31% going to Republicans.

Now. let’s get down to the number crunching….

Check out WilmerHale’s political donations for the 2016 Election Cycle. They gave $1,484,082 in total contributions. 76% of that total went to Democrats, including I am sure, a sizable chunk to the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton. Only 21% of their Political Donations for the year of 2016 went to Republican Candidates.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was a partner at Hale and Dorr LLP, an affiliate of WilmerHale, from 1993-1995. In 1994, that Law Firm gave a Total of $64,525 in Political Donations to Individual Candidates. $40,550 went to Democrats. $23,975 went to Republicans. The percentages broke down to 63% and 37%, respectively.

Robert Mueller was hired at WilmerHale in March of 2014 and stayed there until he was appointed Special Counsel in May of 2017.

That means that he was a contributor through his Law Firm to two Election Cycles, the 2014 Midterm Elections and the 2016 Presidential Election.

For well over one year now, we have been hearing from the Democratic Leadership as to how Special Counsel Mueller’s integrity is above reproach. I do not personally know the man, so I have no first-hand knowledge of whether it is or not.

However, is it just me…or does it appear to be a gross Conflict of Interest for the Special Counsel and several members of his staff, who are conducting an exhaustive, no boundaries investigation searching for possible malfeasance of the part of a sitting Republican President and his staff, to have been members of a Law Firm with a very long and lucrative history of heavy donations to the Democratic Party?

With no evidence of collusion with the Russians on the part of Donald J. Trump having been found and assurances from Mueller that Trump is NOT his target, then what, at this point, is the purpose of the Special Counsel’s Ongoing Investigation?

The only logical conclusion that can be made is that Mueller and his Investigative Team are performing a service not unlike the service that David Axlerod performed for Barack Hussein Obama when he ran for the Senate in Illinois. Mueller and his team are digging up whatever dirt that they can find, using whatever means necessary, including going way out of their jurisdiction, is order to damage and possibly end the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

That being said, it is time for Trump to get a new Attorney General and for that Attorney General to pull the plug out of the wall from Special Counsel Mueller’s Money Machine.

And, after that, how about some actual investigating of all of the corruption that went on during the Obama Presidency such as The Clinton Foundation’s Pay-For-Play Scandal, Huma Abedin’s familial connections with the Muslim Brotherhood, and, of course, the scandal known as Uranium One.

Mueller would not be able to investigate that one because he was heavily involved in it.

After all…he was the “mule”.
