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

February 13, 2018

“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.

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,

KJ

 

 

 

 

Shadows in the Swamp – Mueller, Comey, the FBI, Hillary, E-mailgate, and a Partisan Witch Hunt Against Trump

December 5, 2017

untitled (188)

All of the collusion, all the things they’re trying to get Trump on, the Democrats did. I’m frosted over this, and everybody ought to damn well be. – Rush Limbaugh, 12/4/2017

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave…”

Late yesterday, the Wall Street Journal posted the following op-ed…

Donald Trump is his own worst enemy, as his many ill-advised tweets on the weekend about Michael Flynn, the FBI and Robert Mueller’s Russia probe demonstrate. But that doesn’t mean that Mr. Mueller and the Federal Bureau of Investigation deserve a pass about their motives and methods, as new information raises troubling questions.

The Washington Post and the New York Times reported Saturday that a lead FBI investigator on the Mueller probe, Peter Strzok, was demoted this summer after it was discovered he’d sent anti- Trump texts to a mistress. As troubling, Mr. Mueller and the Justice Department kept this information from House investigators, despite Intelligence Committee subpoenas that would have exposed those texts. They also refused to answer questions about Mr. Strzok’s dismissal and refused to make him available for an interview.

The news about Mr. Strzok leaked only when the Justice Department concluded it couldn’t hold out any longer, and the stories were full of spin that praised Mr. Mueller for acting “swiftly” to remove the agent. Only after these stories ran did Justice agree on Saturday to make Mr. Strzok available to the House.

This is all the more notable because Mr. Strzok was a chief lieutenant to former FBI Director James Comey and played a lead role investigating alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. Mr. Mueller then gave him a top role in his special-counsel probe. And before all this Mr. Strzok led the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and sat in on the interview she gave to the FBI shortly before Mr. Comey publicly exonerated her in violation of Justice Department practice.

Oh, and the woman with whom he supposedly exchanged anti-Trump texts, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, worked for both Mr. Mueller and deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, who was accused of a conflict of interest in the Clinton probe when it came out that Clinton allies had donated to the political campaign of Mr. McCabe’s wife. The texts haven’t been publicly released, but it’s fair to assume their anti-Trump bias must be clear for Mr. Mueller to reassign such a senior agent.

There is no justification for withholding all of this from Congress, which is also investigating Russian influence and has constitutional oversight authority. Justice and the FBI have continued to defy legal subpoenas for documents pertaining to both surveillance warrants and the infamous Steele dossier that was financed by the Clinton campaign and relied on anonymous Russian sources.

While there is no evidence so far of Trump-Russia collusion, House investigators have turned up enough material to suggest that anti-Trump motives may have driven Mr. Comey’s FBI investigation. The public has a right to know whether the Steele dossier inspired the Comey probe, and whether it led to intrusive government eavesdropping on campaign satellites such as Carter Page.

All of this reinforces our doubts about Mr. Mueller’s ability to conduct a fair and credible probe of the FBI’s considerable part in the Russia-Trump drama. Mr. Mueller ran the bureau for 12 years and is fast friends with Mr. Comey, whose firing by Mr. Trump triggered his appointment as special counsel. The reluctance to cooperate with a congressional inquiry compounds doubts related to this clear conflict of interest.

***
Mr. Mueller’s media protectorate argues that anyone critical of the special counsel is trying to cover for Mr. Trump. But the alleged Trump-Russia ties are the subject of numerous probes—Mr. Mueller’s, and those of various committees in the House and Senate. If there is any evidence of collusion, Democrats and Mr. Mueller’s agents will make sure it is spread far and wide.

Yet none of this means the public shouldn’t also know if, and how, America’s most powerful law-enforcement agency was influenced by Russia or partisan U.S. actors. All the more so given Mr. Comey’s extraordinary intervention in the 2016 campaign, which Mrs. Clinton keeps saying turned the election against her. The history of the FBI is hardly without taint.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mr. Mueller, is also playing an increasingly questionable role in resisting congressional oversight. Justice has floated multiple reasons for ignoring House subpoenas, none of them persuasive. 

First it claimed cooperation would hurt the Mueller probe, but his prosecutions are proceeding apace. Then Justice claimed that providing House investigators with classified material could hurt security or sources. But House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes has as broad a security clearance as nearly anyone in government. Recently Justice said it can’t interfere with a probe by the Justice Department Inspector General—as if an IG trumps congressional oversight.

Mr. Nunes is understandably furious at the Strzok news, on top of the other stonewalling. He asked Justice to meet the rest of his committee’s demands by close of business Monday, and if it refuses Congress needs to pursue contempt citations against Mr. Rosenstein and new FBI Director Christopher Wray.

The latest news supports our view that Mr. Mueller is too conflicted to investigate the FBI and should step down in favor of someone more credible. The investigation would surely continue, though perhaps with someone who doesn’t think his job includes protecting the FBI and Mr. Comey from answering questions about their role in the 2016 election.

When word first got out that Former President Obama was setting up shop in Washington, DC close to the White House and that there was a cadre of Professional Government Bureaucrats still loyal to him and the Democratic Party working together as a “Shadow Government”, I made the remark that the situation was like that in a Tom Clancy Spy Novel.

Not only was I right, but I underestimated just how blatantly deep within the swamp that these shadows roamed.

As The WSJ Editorial Board alluded to, Robert Muller was appointed FBI Director by George W. Bush, whom he served under for 10 years.

However, there is more to the pervasive corruption contained within this supposedly unbiased Special Counsel Investigation.

When Barack Hussein Obama became President, Mueller served under him for 2 more years. During that time, he acted as a “mule” for Secretary of State Clinton, carrying a sample of the before-mentioned seized uranium BACK to Vladimir Putin via the Russian Embassy.

Mueller’s past, plus the fact that he has recruited lawyers who are Democratic Donors to fill out his “Investigative Staff” led me and others to throw up a red flag about this guy, believing that he is another Establishment Political Weasel like James Comey, who followed Mueller as Director of the FBI.

Just call me “Captain Obvious”, but, considering the facts that we already know about this fiasco, it is very obvious to this crazy ol’ cracka’ that the Trump Russian Collusion Fairy tale was actually a False Flag Operation designed by the Democratic Party Hierarchy, their Propaganda Arm, the Main Street Media, and their operatives on Capitol Hill and within the Trump Administration itself, to keep the nation’s attention diverted to the Trump/Russia Lie, when in reality the Uranium One Treasonous Operation by Hillary Clinton WAS AND REMAINS THE STORY.

And now, through yesterday’s revelations of the political shenanigans pulled on behalf of Hillary Clinton by the FBI, and the fact that those who were behind all of that corruption are the main participants in this Democratic Witch Hunt disguised as in impartial investigation, it is apparent to this average American that, unlike the suggestion made by the Editors of the WSJ, Mueller should not simply be replaced, this whole macabre joke of an “investigation” needs to be shut down.

It is now apparent that President Donald J. Trump’s “Russiagate” is an invention of the Democratic Party in more ways than one. Not only was Hillary Clinton guilty of nefarious dealings with the Russians when she was Obama’s Secretary of State, she, her Campaign Staff, and shadow operatives within the FBI attempted to work with the Russians in an attempt to sabotage the campaign of Donald J. Trump in order to overcome her own shortcomings and win the Presidency. When that didn’t happen, she, along with the Democrat Elite, made up the version of “Russiagate” which the MSM and Liberal Political Activists (but, I repeat myself) have been bombarding skeptical Americans with for the past 11 months.

Additionally, the American Public is just now slowly becoming aware of the treasonous activities of Hillary and her fellow Democrats because the Main Stream Media, who have been and remain so complicit in the matter, refuse to “air” this story.

Now that it has been revealed that the FBI, Comey, Mueller, Strzok, et al covered up the extent of Hillary Clinton’s reckless handing of Top Secret Information, which very well could have been passed along to the Muslim Brotherhood by Clinton’s Assistant and BFF Huma Abedin, whom they also “interviewed”, as she has relatives in that Islamic Terrorist Organization, it is time to re-open the E-mailgate INvestigation and put hooks in that can of worms and catch some very smelly fish.

Not only is it past time to Drain the Swamp, it is time to cast a spotlight on the Shadow Government Bureaucrats within the Administration, who are working to not only destroy President Trump, but also our American Way of Life.

It’s time to go snake hunting in the Washington Swamp.

Former FBI Director Comey Wrote Clinton’s E-mailgate Exoneration Letter Before Beginning His Investigation

September 1, 2017

untitled (172)

Two years ago, in a post about Hillary Clinton’s E-mailgate, I asked the following question…

What if the Obama Administration and their minions are shouting down the voiced concerns of Republican Primary Candidate Donald J., Trump, the American People, and those in Congress, and dragging their feet on having the DOJ issue indictments, because they knew “what was going on” all along?

…and simply did not care?

Well, I don’t know about all of the Administration, but, it now appears that the FBI Director did.

Foxnews.com reports that

Then-FBI Director James Comey began drafting a statement exonerating Hillary Clinton in the investigation into her private email use before interviewing key witnesses, including Clinton herself, two Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee said Thursday.
 
“Conclusion first, fact-gathering second—that’s no way to run an investigation,” Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham wrote in a letter this week to the FBI. “The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy.”

Grassley and Graham said they learned about Comey’s draft “exoneration statement” after reviewing transcripts of interviews with top Comey aides.

“According to the unredacted portions of the transcripts, it appears that in April or early May of 2016, Mr. Comey had already decided he would issue a statement exonerating Secretary Clinton,” the senators said.

They added, “That was long before FBI agents finished their work. Mr. Comey even circulated an early draft statement to select members of senior FBI leadership. The outcome of an investigation should not be prejudged while FBI agents are still hard at work trying to gather the facts.”

Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, was investigated by the FBI for using a private email address and server to handle classified information while serving as secretary of state.

In July 2016, Comey famously called Clinton’s email arrangement “extremely careless” though he decided against recommending criminal charges.

In a news release Thursday, the senators said Comey began drafting a statement in April or May 2016, which was before the FBI interviewed 17 key witnesses, including Clinton herself and other top aides.

The statement preceded the FBI entering into an immunity agreement with top Clinton aides with Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson.

The transcripts are from interviews conducted by the Office of Special Counsel, which interviewed James Rybicki, Comey’s chief of staff, and Trisha Anderson, the principal deputy general counsel of national security and cyberlaw, the senators said.

“It is unclear whether the FBI agents actually investigating the case were aware that Mr. Comey had already decided on the investigation’s outcome while their work was ongoing,” the senators wrote.

In the Wednesday letter to FBI Director Chris Wray, the two senators said they have requested all records relating to the drafting of the statement.

Comey was fired as FBI director by President Trump in May amid tensions over the Russia investigation.

In a related story, posted last night by The Daily Caller

A federal judge ordered the FBI Thursday to publicly release previously unseen documents related to the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg ordered the FBI to produce uncensored court documents describing the grand jury subpoenas issued to force Clinton’s internet service providers to turn over information related to her private server use, according to a statement released by Cause of Action Institute.

The ruling was made in response to a motion filed in June as part of a suit brought by Cause of Action Institute and Judicial Watch. The organizations claim the Department of State violated the Federal Records Act by failing to maintain records related to Clinton’s handling of classified information.

Boasberg justified his ruling on the basis that the set of documents in question “rehashes information already made public, thus obviating any need for secrecy.”

Cause of Action President and CEO John J. Vecchione praised the decision in a statement released Thursday following the court’s ruling.

“I applaud the court’s opinion. The government attempted to end a case with evidence no one could review. This order makes public details submitted by the government about the FBI’s efforts to recover then-Secretary Clinton’s unlawfully removed emails,” he said. “Americans deserve to know the full scope of that investigation, and we, as Plaintiffs, should have an opportunity to contest the relevance of the government’s facts.”

Former FBI Director James Comey called Clinton’s use of a private email address and server to handle classified information “extremely careless” in his July Congressional testimony but stopped short of filing charges.

The requested documents relate specifically to subpoenas related to emails Clinton sent on two Blackberry accounts during her first few weeks in office.

Boasberg’s order overrules objections made by the Trump administration, who previously claimed that publicly releasing the documents would violate grand jury secrecy rules.

The order comes days after the FBI refused to turn over documents related to their investigation into Clinton’s private email server, citing a lack of public interest to justify denying the FOIA request.

Comey never had any intentions of honestly investigating Hillary Clinton.

Why?

Obama hired him.

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

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.

However, try as they might, the purposeful obfuscation and political chicanery by ex-FBI Director Comey and the Professional Bureaucrats, who are members of the “Deep State”, plotting against President Trump, will never be able to redeem Hillary Clinton’s Political Career.

“Unjust attacks” on the Queen of Mean were not responsible for her loss to Donald J. Trump on November 8, 2016.

Neither are any of the other silly excuses which her, the Democratic Party, their Propaganda Arm, the MSM, and their Social Media Minions offer to explain her defeat.

Hillary Clinton, as shown by her “sound bites’, before, during, and after 2016’s history-making Presidential Election, views herself as smarter than average Americans.

She comes off in public as being snotty, cold, and insincere…because she is

This is nothing new.

In the Spring of 1974, Hillary became a member of the Presidential Impeachment Inquiry Staff, advising the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives during the Watergate Scandal. Her boss back then, Jerry Zeifman, now-retired General Counsel and Chief of Staff of the House Judiciary Committee, tells a very revealing story concerning her work there.According to Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former Yale Law Professor, Burke Marshall, also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the Watergate Investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation. That made the Future First Lady and Secretary of State one of only three people who earned that badge of dishonor in Zeifman’s 17-year career. Why?

According to Zeifman,

Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.

Witness her behavior during the entire investigation regarding the events of that horrific night of September 11, 2012, on the grounds of the U.S. Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya.

We learned on October 26, 2012, that there were two drones circling overhead, as four brave Americans were being slaughtered. Obama and his Administration knew exactly what was happening, yet, for the sake of political expediency, chose to do nothing about it.

What Hillary’s appearance before the Benghazi Hearings showed, was a pathological predilection for dishonesty, insincerity, and inappropriateness, not only on the part of Former Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton,  but the whole Obama Administration, as well, from the top on down.

They all knew that the cause of the attacks was not some stupid Youtube Video, but a full-blown Muslim Terrorist Attack.

However, for the sake of Political Expediency…and the re-election of President Barack Hussein Obama and the legacy of his rapidly failing Foreign Policy, known as Smart Power!, they had to quickly come up with an excuse for their liability in the deaths of those four brave Americans.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, with her Oscar-worthy Performance in front of the House Committee, which included circuitous answers to Yes or No Questions and inappropriate smirks, accompanied by cackling laughter, echoes across the years, proved completely true and accurate as to what I and my fellow Conservative Bloggers were saying about her all along:

Hillary is a sociopath, who envisioned herself to be smarter than everybody else, above the law, and White House-bound, because she believed that she was going to be handed the Presidency, simply because “it’s her turn”.

Oopsie.

Americans disagreed.

The name Hillary Rodham Clinton has already become synonymous with the untrustworthy nature of professional politicians.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Whether the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians (an irony lost on the conspiratorial Democrats perpetuating the Russia-Trump Collusion Fable)  or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation,  as was previously  reported in 2015, or the revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, this is not just a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and Emailgate, Hillary Clinton proved to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cared about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

In conclusion, it was not just one incident which cost Hillary Clinton the Presidency .

It was A LIFETIME OF LIES.

Average Americans, from the Rust Belt to the Bible Belt, were familiar with Mrs. Clinton.

They knew who she was and what she was.

They knew that she would walk 20 miles across the scorching desert sand to tell a lie rather than step across on of Obama’s infamous Red Lines and tell the truth.

Hillary has no one to blame but herself for losing the Presidency to Donald J. Trump.

But, of course, she never will.

For, after all, accepting responsibility for one’s words and actions is as repulsive to a Modern American Liberal as a Crucifix is to a Vampire, jus as she showed in her speech about a “Divided America” the other day, when she “came out of the woods”.

Just like their failed Presidential Candidate, the Democrats and their operatives in the Main Stream Media who have made up all of the Fake News Stories concerning the Russians somehow tampering with the election, refuse to accept the reality that average American rejected their political ideology and sent a Citizen Statesman to Washington on November 8, 2016, instead of a Professional Politician, even with Deep State Political  Operatives in the FBI,  including Director Comey himself ,working on her behalf.

Donald J. Trump remains the President of the United States of America.

And, all of the “Special Snowflakes” can continue their National Temper Tantrum, if they wish.

For after all,

What difference at this point does it make?

Mueller Expands Investigation Into Trump Family Finances. Trump Says That Would Be a “Breach”.

July 21, 2017

Mueller-Traps-600-LA

“This seems more like an effort to prosecute Donald Trump.”
“What the hell are we investigating?” “Why are we going through with this charade?” –  U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (R-Wis.)

Foxnews.com reports that

The morning after President Trump publicly warned Special Counsel Robert Mueller to stick to Russia and avoid probing his family finances outside that scope, a new report quoting a single, anonymous source has struck the White House like a bomb.

The report, by Bloomberg News, says Mueller’s investigation has indeed expanded to examine a range of business transactions by the president and his associates.

The transactions in question largely involve Russian interests, and it’s unclear from the report whether the investigation might eye non-Russian dealings – which Trump warned in an interview with The New York Times would be crossing a red line.

Asked whether an examination of his family finances unrelated to Russia would be a breach, Trump said, “I would say yes.”

But the Bloomberg report portrays an investigation that continues to expand and evolve, as the president openly voices frustration with its scope. 

According to the report, investigators are looking at Trump’s involvement with Russian associates on a development in the U.S.; the Russian purchase of apartments in his buildings; Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch and even the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. Bloomberg’s source reportedly said this aspect of the probe is rooted in an investigation launched by former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, among dozens of federal prosecutors canned by the Trump administration earlier this year.

In the Times interview, Trump complained about multiple aspects of the Russia controversy and case, including that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself from the investigation.

He turned his attention to Mueller as he griped that the special counsel was hiring lawyers who donated to his general election rival Hillary Clinton. 

The president also called him out for having interviewed for the job to replace ex-FBI Director James Comey just before his appointment and warned he could start discussing the special counsel’s “conflicts” on the job.

Trump said after Mueller was named, he said to himself, “’What the hell is this all about?’ Talk about conflicts. But he was interviewing for the job. There were many other conflicts that I haven’t said, but I will at some point.”

The Times interview eventually delved into what Trump might do if Mueller went too far beyond the Russia lane in looking at his and his family’s financial transactions.

“I think that’s a violation,” Trump responded. “Look, this is about Russia.”

Trump would not say whether he’d consider seeking Mueller’s ouster in that scenario but defended his transactions.  

“So I think if he wants to go, my finances are extremely good, my company is an unbelievably successful company,” he told the Times, according to the transcript. “I don’t do business with Russia.” 

White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked at Thursday’s press briefing whether Trump has plans to fire him, but said, “although he has the authority to do so, he doesn’t intend to do so.”

Back on June 13th, I wrote a post titled: “Special Counsel Mueller Hires Dem Donors. Is This an Investigative Staff or a “Firing Squad”?” concerning the hiring of Democrats to be a part of the investigative team looking into whether President Trump “colluded” with Russia.

In that post I set up and asked the following pertinent question…

…The thing is Muller was appointed FBI Director by George W. Bush whom he served under for 10 years.

When Barack Hussein Obama became President, Mueller served under him for 2 more years.

His past, plus his present staff activity has lead me and others to throw up a red flag about this guy, fearing that he may be another Establishment Political Weasel like James Comey, who followed Mueller as Director of the FBI.

Why would a Special Counsel hire so many financial supporters of the Democratic Party to assist in investigating a matter which the Democratic Party has erroneously linked to a President?

Is Professional Bureaucrat Mueller putting together an Investigative Staff or a Firing Squad?

Well, boys and girls, I think that we now know the answer to my question.

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

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

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

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

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

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

On, the night of the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary and her henchman, Podesta came up with this cockamamie Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, which the Libs have been harping on, repeating lies as being facts, as if they graduated from the Dan Rather School of Broadcast Journalism.

As I have written before, the frenzy which they have built themselves into as a group resembles the mentality of an old West Lynch Mob.

They want a hanging, and by gum, there WILL be a “hanging”, even though, as Professor Dershowitz has written, there is no proof whatsoever that the President did anything wrong.

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

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

And, the Russia-Trump Collusion Fairy Tale is their attempt to circumvent our Constitution.

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

It appears to this average American that Mueller, being well-connected in the Washington Establishment, is cut from the same cloth as Former FBI Director James Comey.

Mueller is turning out to be a political weasel, a professional bureaucrat who views himself to be more important than he actually is, just like Comey.

President Trump needs to go ahead and fire Mueller.

…before he and the rest of “The Resistance” usurp the will of the American People.

Sessions Defends His Honor…”YUGELY”

June 14, 2017

170110-jeff-sessions-mn-1430_c700b20a8a7a4643b581c7be54b8061c.nbcnews-fp-1200-800

The elites have become international, and they’ve ceased to have a primary loyalty to the nation-state. – Jeff Sessions

Foxnews.com reports that

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in dramatic Senate testimony, on Tuesday decried suggestions he colluded with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign as an “appalling and detestable lie” — while staunchly defending his role in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. 
 
“I have never met with or had any conversations with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election,” Sessions told the Senate Intelligence Committee. “I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign.” 

The attorney general addressed the same Senate panel that heard last week from Comey, becoming the highest-ranking official to testify in the Russia investigation. 

Democrats used the forum to pepper Sessions with tough questions, at times accusing him of “stonewalling” and impeding the congressional probe.

The normally reserved Sessions showed his feisty side in response, pushing back on what he called the “secret innuendo” being leaked about his contact with Russians and challenging portions of Comey’s testimony. 

In a fiery opening statement, Sessions specifically contradicted Comey’s claims that he remained silent when the former FBI director expressed his concerns over a meeting with President Trump.

“I responded to his comment by agreeing that the FBI and Department of Justice needed to be careful to follow Department policies regarding appropriate contacts with the White House,” Sessions said, adding he was confident that Comey understood the rules on communicating with the White House about ongoing investigations.

Sessions had earlier recused himself from all matters relating to the Russia investigation after it was reported he had failed to disclose two meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden asked Sessions about conflicting accounts rising from Comey’s testimony and claims that there was something “problematic” about Sessions’ role before his recusal.

Asked what issues might be problematic, Sessions raised his voice: “Why don’t you tell me? There are none, Senator Wyden, there are none … This is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me, and I don’t appreciate it.” 

Democrats appeared to be looking for evidence that Sessions’ contact with Russian officials was more significant than previously thought. Sessions has said neither of the two disclosed encounters had anything to with the Trump campaign in 2016 and that the meetings took place in his role as a lawmaker.

Sessions flatly denied a third meeting with the Russian liaison at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington during a campaign event in April.

“I did not have any private meetings nor do I recall any conversations with any Russian officials at the Mayflower Hotel,” he said. “I did not attend any meetings at that event. Prior to the speech, I attended a reception with my staff that included at least two dozen people and President Trump. Though I do recall several conversations I had during that pre-speech reception, I do not have any recollection of meeting or talking to the Russian ambassador or any other Russian officials.”

Tuesday was Sessions’ first time in the witness seat since his confirmation hearing in February.

Sessions’ testimony came on the heels of Comey’s explosive testimony last week on Russia’s medding in U.S. elections and allegations that Trump tried to kill a related investigation. 

During Comey’s hearing, he hinted at Sessions’ role in the controversy.

“We were also aware of facts that I cannot discuss in an open setting that would make his continued engagement in a Russia investigation problematic,” Comey said. 

The Justice Department and Sessions himself have pushed back on such suggestions. Sessions also has faced questions from Democrats about why he was involved in recommending Comey’s firing even after he recused himself from the Russia investigation. However, Sessions said Tuesday he had a duty to oversee the Justice Department and FBI, and a “fresh start” was needed at the FBI.  

He also said he has the right to defend himself. 

“I recused myself from any investigation into the campaign for president. I did not recuse myself from defending my honor against scurrilous and false allegations,” he said. 

Unlike Comey, who bluntly said he tried to avoid one-on-one encounters with Trump and began documenting their interactions, Sessions is a staunch supporter of the president.

Sessions was one of the first members of Congress to endorse Trump and was then-candidate Trump’s adviser on almost every major decision and policy proposal pushed on the campaign trail.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio asked Sessions whether Trump had recorded conversations he had in the White House with Comey – something Trump hinted he had done then walked back.

Comey said last week that he hopes there are tapes and encouraged the White House to release them.

“I do not [know],” Sessions said when asked whether he knows whether the president records his conversations.

Comey had also said that Sessions had lingered in the Oval Office following a group meeting, just before the private encounter during which Comey has said Trump asked him to pull back on his investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. As Trump tried to shoo everyone out to talk alone with Comey, Sessions lingered, in Comey’s account. Comey suggested this indicated the attorney general’s awareness that it was improper for Trump and Comey to meet alone together, given the specter of the Department of Justice’s investigation into Russia’s election meddling and possible ties with the Trump campaign.

But Sessions disputed that was why he lingered, suggesting there was really nothing to it.

“I do recall being one of the last ones to leave, I don’t know how that occurred,” Sessions said. “I eventually left.”

Boys and Girls, if you were watching AG Sessions testify yesterday, you were watching an honorable man of conviction.

The Liberal Democrats just cannot come to grips that their “perfect” candidate was, in fact, a lousy pick and a hateful, inept, downright mean individual whom they never should have nominated as their Presidential Choice. And so, the Democrats have taken a crooked little fantasy, conceived by two crooked little politicians named Hillary Clinton and John Podesta on the night that the latter was beaten by Donald J. Trump for the Presidency of the United States of America.

Six months later, having come up empty in their Quixotic Quests to find proof to back up their blatant lie that President Trump “colluded” with the Russians, they decided to attempt to break Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a Senate Hearing.

The best laid plans of mice and men oft’ times go awry. – Robert Burns

I suppose that the Democrat Senators believed that their “superior intellects” would tear ol’ Jeff Apart.

Instead it was they who got torn…a new one.

Unlike the sniveling 6’7′ Former FBI Director and Political Weasel who testified recently, AG Sessions stood his ground and showed the Democrat Senators what a man of honor does when his integrity is called into question:

HE FIGHTS!

AG Sessions literally left those seeking to get down and wallow in the mud that is the made-up story of Russian Collusion high and dry.

Which led amateur Political Pundits on Facebook Political Pages yesterday to start claiming that the Attorney General of the United States of America suffers from the early stages of dementia…a charge which the sniveling little cowards living in their Moms’ Basements would not dare repeat to his face.

The Democrat Party and all of their minions in the MSM and their cadre of trolls, paid and unpaid, lurking under the bridges of Facebook Political Pages are now being driven beyond desperation in their Quixotic Quest to somehow rid themselves of an American President who is in the process of doing exactly what he promised to do if elected President.

He is systematically not only destroying Obama’s Legacy, he is also getting bills passed right and left which deal with Obama’s stagnant economy and his horrible (and quite possibly, intentional) mismanagement of the Veterans Administration.

While the Democrats, their Propaganda Arm, the MSM, and their Social Media/Justice “Warriors” are so focused on trying to somehow remove the 45th President from office, Trump is steadily doing what we elected his for.

And as far as Sessions’ day in the spotlight is concerned…

Well done, Mr. Attorney General.

As we say in Dixie,

You told them the way the cow ate the cabbage…and came out smelling like a rose.

While the Democrats stunk up the place.

Comparing Generations: The Greatest Generation Vs. Generation Snowflake (A KJ Rant)

June 10, 2017

american-manhood

There has been a question gnawing at me for quite a while now. Ever since all of the Astroturf National Protests featuring the BLM, illegal aliens, and millennials in desperate need of a “safe space” started greeting average Americans like you and me when we turned on the television to watch the news.

If America was led by the likes of Modern American Liberals during the frightening days when Hitler rose to power after the Beer Hall Putsch and that faithful day of December 7, 1941, “a day which will live in infamy”, while at the same time the young Americans of that era were the millennials of today, would America have stood up the Axis of Evil?

Would the millennials that we are watching throwing hissy fits and railing against the President and traditional American Faith and Values on the Evening News and the Social Media have the guts to do what the Greatest Generation did?

Would Modern American Liberals be willing to make the sacrifices that my Daddy and Mother and the rest of their generation did?

I seriously doubt it.

There wouldn’t be long lines at the Armed Forces Recruitment Office trying to sign up to serve their country.

Heck, these days it is hard to get them to move out of their parents’ house, much less be willing to fight and die for their country.

There are those millennials out there who would rather defecate on our flag than to die for it.

And, while they talk a good game about being “Stronger Together”, when the rubber meets the road, it’s every man (or woman) for themselves.

Instead of the Greatest Generation, we are presently having to deal with the selfish “Generation Snowflake”.

It’s like watching an angry child in their Mom’s shopping cart at Walmart.

I want…I want…I…I…I…me…me…me…

No wonder they viewed Obama as their “messiah”.

As long as he had himself, he was never alone.

The last 48 hours have really driven this home to me.

Even with Former FBI Director Comey telling the world that President Donald J. Trump was not under investigation and did not collude with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Election, Generation Snowflake like the child at Walmart who is told that they are not getting a toy that  they see, firmly believes that if they keep crying, whining, and making stories up about how bad and evil that Trump is, somehow, Hillary Clinton, the deserving heir to their messiah, will magically become the President of the United States of America.

And, just like you have to tell a petulant child over and over again why they cannot have a toy, average Americans here in the Heartland are having to explain ad infinitum to  Generation Snowflake that WE are responsible for Donald J. Trump being the President of the United States of America.

There was no collusion.

There was no obstruction.

There was no Russian inference.

There WAS a visceral anger over the poor stewardship and performance of the Previous President and a deep and abiding concern for our children’s and grandchildren’s future.

And a lousy, unlikable Democratic Presidential Candidate who was and is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

It is time for these precious snowflakes to understand that there are no safe spaces and you do not always get your way in this life.

It is time for the National Temper Tantrum to end.

And for those throwing it to place country over self.

–RANT OVER–

Comey, Comey, Comey Chameleon: Comey’s Testimony Reveals Obstruction of Justice…But, It Wasn’t Under Trump

June 9, 2017

Nauseous-Comey-600a-LA (2)

In yesterday’s post, I wrote,

Today, the Constitution will stop the Lynch Mob.

Instead of Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and Randolph Scott stopping an innocent man from a Lynch Mob, today’s heroes will be Jefferson, Franklin, and Madison.

I love it when I’m right.

Here’s a very good summary of Former Director Jim Comey’s testimony, courtesy of Laura Ingraham’s Lifezette.com

Former FBI Director James Comey said Thursday that he doubted President Donald Trump’s honesty and suggested that he made inappropriate requests of him regarding fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

At the same time, Comey reiterated before the Senate Intelligence Committee his written testimony, released Wednesday, that he had volunteered to Trump he was not a subject of the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election campaign. He also testified that Trump never asked him to stop the counterintelligence investigation.

Comey’s testimony Thursday was his first public appearance since his May 9 firing and one of the most widely anticipated hearings in recent memory. Long lines formed as people sought one of the limited number of seats in the hearing room.

Here are the main takeaways:

Trump was frustrated that Comey would not confirm in public what he was saying privately.

Comey acknowledged that he told Trump on three separate occasions — including unprompted the first time — that he was not under investigation. He testified that he briefed congressional leaders on Americans who were the subjects of the counterintelligence investigation.

“And we specifically said the president is not one of those Americans,” he said.

Comey confirmed this still was the case at the time of his dismissal.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) alluded to the frustration that Trump must have felt.

“Do you think it’s unreasonable for them to want the FBI director to publicly announce that so that this cloud over his administration could be publicly removed?” he asked.

Responded Comey: “I think that’s a reasonable point of view. The concern, obviously, would be is if that boomerang comes back, it’s going to be a very big deal, because there will be a duty to correct.”

Sen Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) questioned why that fact remained a secret for so long.

“You know this investigation is full of leaks left and right. I mean we’ve learned more from the newspapers sometimes than we do from our open hearings, for sure,” Rubio said. “You ever wonder why of all things in this investigation, the only thing that’s never been leaked is the fact that the president is not personally under investigation despite the fact that both Democrats and Republicans and leadership of Congress knew that and have known that for weeks?”

Comey responded that information given to the eight congressional leaders authorized for top-secret briefings generally is tightly held.

Comey tried to manipulate the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel.

For the first time, Comey explained how the contents of the memos he wrote documenting his interactions with Trump ended up on the front page of The New York Times.

Comey testified that he gave his memos to a friend who teaches at Columbia University’s law school and asked him to get them out in the public. And Comey made clear his motivation was not just to promote his side of the story.

“I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel,” he said.

In fact, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein did appoint a special counsel. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller now has control of the Russia investigation.

Two senators, Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and James Lankford (R-Okla.), both asked Comey to ask his friend to turn over the notes to the committee. Comey said he would.

Comey had great concerns about Trump’s conduct but kept those concerns to himself and a small circle of people at the FBI.

Comey said that he interpreted Trump’s request that Comey could see his “way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go” as more than a request.

“I took it as a direction … I didn’t obey that, but that’s how I took it,” he said.

Comey acknowledged, though, that it was not an explicit order.

“Not in his words, no,” he said.

Asked again by Sen. James Risch (R-Idaho), Comey said, “Again, those words are not an order.”

Comey also said he does not know of anyone being charged with obstruction of justice for expressing a desire for an outcome.

Comey said he does not know why he did not respond to Trump’s request in a stronger way by insisting that the conversation was inappropriate.

“Maybe if I were stronger, I would have,” he said. “I was so stunned by the conversation that I just took it in.”

Comey didn’t accept the initial explanation of his firing.

Comey testified that he recognized that the president has the authority to fire the FBI director for any reason or no reason at all.

“But then the explanations, the shifting explanations, confused me and increasingly concerned me,” he said. “They confused me because the president and I had multiple conversations about my job and he had repeatedly told me I was doing a great job and had hoped I would stay.”

Comey said he also was upset that the administration “then chose to defame me and more importantly the FBI.”

About the White House description of the FBI being in disarray, he said, “Those were lies, plain and simple.”

Comey said it was for Mueller, not him, to conclude whether Trump’s request regarding Flynn amounts to obstruction.

Comey was troubled by the conduct of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information.

Comey said that Lynch directed him to call the Clinton probe a “matter” and not an investigation. He said he was troubled when the Clinton campaign for president started using that same language.

“It gave the impression that the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way a political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate,” he said. “We had a criminal investigation open … That gave me a queasy feeling.”

That, Comey said, is one of the reasons he decided to call a news conference in July announcing that he was recommending no charges in the case. That news conference broke with Justice Department protocol.

First things first.

About that queasy feeling when AG Lynch told you to call the Clinton E-mail/Clinton Foundation Investigation a “matter”, Former Director Comey: Why didn’t you tell somebody that you have reservations about it?

Why didn’t you accuse her and her boss, President Obama, of Obstruction of Justice?

Rush Limbaugh revealed the answer to my question on his program yesterday:

Comey’s out there giving red meat to all sides. In the process, though, this guy’s doing some amazing things. He’s admitting that he’s a coward. He admitted that he let Loretta Lynch shape the language used in describing the Hillary investigation. He has admitted that she pressured him to do that and that he fell for her pressure. He has admitted to orchestrating a memo leak! You know, the famous memos that Comey was said to have? When we first heard about Comey’s memos, we were told that Comey had, as a general practice throughout all of his years as a lawyer — after big meetings — that he would memorialize what had happened, who had said what, as an exercise in remembering what was said or in preserving the record should there be disputes.

We were told that he’d been doing this for quite a while, which led me to ask publicly here, “Man, I’d like to see some of the memos he wrote after conversations with Obama.” Well, then we learned that he never had but two conversations with Obama and really only one. The second one was when Obama called to say good-bye after he was leaving office, and the other time was talking about — I forget — whatever it was. But I’m sitting here thinking, is this…?

We’re supposed to believe with Obama over there in the White House and Eric Holder here as attorney general, then Loretta Lynch, that Comey (chuckling) never, never was aware what Obama wanted? It’s kind of like Lois Lerner. Everybody was saying they hoped they’d find the smoking gun memo that directed her to discriminate against Tea Party groups at the IRS. You’re never gonna find that because one’s not needed. Obama hires like-minded people who know what to do without having to be told.

I think Comey is shaping up to be one of these people.

Yep. Of course he is.

Obama hired him.

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

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.

So, where do we stand, one day removed from Comey’s testimony, boys and girls?

What have we learned?

Just as anyone with any common sense whatsoever has been saying from the get-go…

There is no “there”, there.

No Trump/Russia Collusion

No Obstruction of Just by President Trump

The Democrats, from the moment that Hillary and Podesta came up with the Trump/Russian Collusion Strategy on the night of November 8, 2016, actually expectedaverage Americans to believe that the 63 million of us who voted for Donald J., Trump were somehow made to do so by the Russians.

They refused to smell what they were shoveling.

Trump carried 31 out of 50 states. Those weren’t Russians out there voting in America’s Heartland.

Average Americans, disgusted with the bias of the Main Stream Media, used the Social Media to spread the truth about the Democrats and their Presidential Candidate. I didn’t see any Russians showing their cat videos or influencing Americans as to how to vote on Facebook.

It wasn’t a Russian who called us all “Deplorables”. It was the “The Queen of Mean”, Hillary Clinton herself.

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

All of the paid and unpaid Internet Trolls, all of the Pajamaboys living in Mom’s Basements, that you can see in Walmarts across the country in their Avengers pajama bottoms, watching as their 80 year-old Mom buys them a video game for their PlayStation 4, need to move on and somehow get a life.

Yesterday, it was confirmed that the Russians did not cost Hillary the election.

I did…along with 63 million other average Americans exercising our Constitutional Right to determine the future of our Sovereign Nation.

And, I am proud to have been able to stand with them to do the right thing in order to

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

Comey, Trump, and the Liberal Lynch Mob (A KJ Analysis)

June 8, 2017

toon170608

Alan M. Dershowitz is an American lawyer, jurist, and author. He is a prominent scholar on United States constitutional law and criminal law, and a leading defender of civil liberties. He spent most of his career at Harvard Law School where he holds the title of Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus.

Yesterday, he posted on op ed on Foxnews.com, which I would like to share with you…

Former FBI Director James Comey’s written statement, which was released in advance of his Thursday testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, does not provide evidence that President Trump committed obstruction of justice or any other crime. Indeed it strongly suggests that even under the broadest reasonable definition of obstruction, no such crime was committed.

The crucial conversation occurred in the Oval Office on February 14 between the president and the then director. According to Comey’s contemporaneous memo, the president expressed his opinion that General Flynn “is a good guy.” Comey replied: “He is a good guy.”

The president said the following: “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this thing go.”

Comey understood that to be a reference only to the Flynn investigation and not “the broader investigation into Russia or possible links to the campaign”

Comey had already told the president that “we were not investigating him personally.”

Comey understood “the president to be requesting that we drop any investigation of Flynn in connection with false statements about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in December.”

Comey did not say he would “let this go,” and indeed he did not grant the president’s request to do so. Nor did Comey report this conversation to the attorney general or any other prosecutor.  He was troubled by what he regarded as a breach of recent traditions of FBI independence from the White House, though he recognized that “throughout history, some presidents have decided that because ‘problems’ come from the Department of Justice, they should try to hold the Department close.”

That is an understatement.

Throughout American history — from Adams to Jefferson to Lincoln to Roosevelt to Kennedy to Obama — presidents have directed (not merely requested) the Justice Department to investigate, prosecute (or not prosecute) specific individuals or categories of individuals.

It is only recently that the tradition of an independent Justice Department and FBI has emerged. But traditions, even salutary ones, cannot form the basis of a criminal charge.

It would be far better if our constitution provided for prosecutors who were not part of the executive branch which is under the direction of the president.

In Great Britain, Israel and other democracies that respect the rule of law, the Director of Public Prosecution or the attorney general are law enforcement officials who, by law, are independent of the Prime Minister.

But our constitution makes the attorney general both the chief prosecutor and the chief political adviser to the present on matters of justice and law enforcement.

The president can, as a matter of constitutional law, direct the attorney general, and his subordinate, the Director of the FBI, tell them what to do, whom to prosecute and whom not to prosecute.  Indeed, the president has the constitutional authority to stop the investigation of any person by simply pardoning that person.

Assume, for argument’s sake, that the president had said the following to Comey: quot;You are no longer authorized to investigate Flynn because I have decided to pardon him.” Would that exercise of the president’s constitutional power to pardon constitute a criminal obstruction of justice? Of course not. presidents do that all the time.

The first President Bush pardoned Casper Weinberger, his Secretary of Defense, in the middle of an investigation that could have incriminated Bush. That was not an obstruction and neither would a pardon of Flynn have been a crime. A president cannot be charged with a crime for properly exercising his constitutional authority 

For the same reason President Trump cannot be charged with obstruction for firing Comey, which he had the constitutional authority to do.

The Comey statement suggests that one reason the president fired him was because of his refusal or failure to publicly announce that the FBI was not investigating Trump personally. Trump “repeatedly” told Comey to “get that fact out,” and he did not.

If that is true, it is certainly not an obstruction of justice.

Nor is it an obstruction of justice to ask for loyalty from the director of the FBI, who responded “you will get that (‘honest loyalty’) from me.”

Comey understood that he and the president may have understood that vague phrase — “honest loyalty” — “differently.”  But no reasonable interpretation of those ambiguous words would give rise to a crime. 

Many Trump opponents were hoping that the Comey statement would provide smoking guns.

It has not.

Instead it has weakened an already weak case for obstruction of justice.   

The statement may provide political ammunition to Trump opponents, but unless they are willing to stretch Comey’s words and take Trump’s out of context and unless they are prepared to abandon important constitutional principles and civil liberties that protect us all, they should not be searching for ways to expand already elastic criminal statutes and shrink enduring constitutional safeguard in a dangerous and futile effort to criminalize political disagreements.

As I sit down to write this post, my bride is in the living room watching “The Virginian” on INSP. For those of you millennials who do not know who or what “The Virginian” is, it is a Western which ran on NBC from 1962-1971 centering around a Civil War Veteran who works as the Foreman on the Shiloh Ranch in Wyoming. The Virginian’s given name was never revealed during the entire run of the show.

So, what does this have to do with Professor Dershowitz’s op ed?

I’m glad you asked.

This whole attack by the never-ending temper tantrum-throwing Modern American Liberals, including their bought-off politicians and paid and unpaid Internet Trolls, reminds of a Lynch Mob in an old Western.

Just like a Lynch Mob, the Liberals Gang Mentality, fueled by their pre-conditioned Hive Mind, will not allow them to accept the fact that Hillary Clinton was beaten fair and square on November 8th, 2016.

Trump just HAS to have cheated…SOMEHOW.

So, the night of the election, Hillary and her henchman, Podesta came up with this cockamamie Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, which the Libs have been harping on and lusting after like a teenage boy with a vintage Playboy Magazine under his mattress.

The frenzy which they have built themselves into as a group resembles the same mentality of an old West Lynch Mob.

They want a hanging, and by gum, there WILL be a “hanging”, even though, as Professor Dershowitz wrote, there is no proof whatsoever that the President did anything wrong.

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

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

Today, the Constitution will stop the Lynch Mob.

Instead of Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and Randolph Scott stopping an innocent man from a Lynch Mob, today’s heroes will be Jefferson, Franklin, and Madison.

So, saddle up, Pards. Today should be some kind of fandango.

Until He Comes,

The Comey Canning and the Liberal Temper Tantrum: When You Wish Upon a “Czar”

May 11, 2017

Nauseous-Comey-600a-LA (2)

As you all probably know by now, President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday afternoon.

It was about cotton-pickin’ time.

Comey always struck me as being a bureaucrat who played both sides against each other, while doing his best to protect his Seat of Power.

From his appearances before Congress to his announcement that he was letting the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton off the hook, there was something about the guy that just did not sit right with me.

He sounded more like a Professional Politician than a Lawman to me.

All of the Liberals participating in the never-ending National Temper Tantrum over Trump beating Hillary for the Presidency on November 8th, 2016 are positively apoplectic over Comey’s firing and the timing of it, coming right before Trump’s meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov.

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, believes that the timing of Comey’s firing was chosen by Trump for the purpose of trolling the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media.

Here is the end of Rush’s opening monologue from yesterday’s program…

How long’s it gonna be…? How long is it gonna be, ladies and gentlemen, before we start hearing how many millions of Americans are gonna die because James Comey was fired? How long is it gonna be before we start hearing about Americans suffering Posttraumatic Comey Firing Syndrome and needing insurance coverage for this mental illness brought on by the Trump presidency? Should we cancel final exams at universities?

Will the students being traumatized to the point that they cannot take their final exam? Should all tests be canceled? Should school be canceled for the year and everybody just finish on spring break? Is that the only way the left is gonna be able to deal with this? How many millions of Americans are gonna die now because Trump fired Comey? Posttraumatic Comey Firing Syndrome. Will it be covered by insurance companies as a preexisting condition going forward?

Take every inane, dumb, stupid political claim they make and attach it to this story. You know how they’re so off track, this Russia investigation… Let me just tell you before we go to the break. It’s not even a criminal investigation. They don’t even know this. Whatever the FBI is doing looking into whether the Russians tampered with on hacked the election or colluded with Trump, is not a criminal investigation. It’s a counterintelligence investigation. It’s not even pursuing Trump on the basis of criminality here.

They’re not pursuing Trump, according to Comey.

He been cleared three times.

Nobody’s talking about this. Look, there’s all the other detail to go in here. Rod Rosenstein, who actually wrote the memo to Sessions detailing the reasons why Comey should be fired. They’re all right on the money; they’re all spot on. I’m tell you, folks, Trump is making fools of these people. He’s doing what he said he was gonna do — draining the swamp, clearing it out — and they just cannot deal with this. I’m telling you, I have had more fun waiting for this program to begin today. Wait ’til you hear… I mean, folks, they have dumped on Hillary Clinton yet again, and nobody has figured this out yet. I will explain.

…Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, ran into the Soviet foreign minister today. He’s in town talking to Trump. (laughing) Here’s Trump colluding with the Russians and the day after he fires Comey he has a meeting with the Soviet — the Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov! (laughing) I mean, this is trolling extraordinaire. Andrea Mitchell, she is loaded for bear.

After Secretary of State Tillerson welcomed Lavrov to the U.S. — they’re about to leave — Andrea Mitchell found Lavrov and asked him a question.

MITCHELL: (shouting) Does the Comey firing cast a shadow of your talks, gentlemen?

LAVROV: Was he fired?

MITCHELL: (screams) Yes!

LAVROV: You’re kidding! You’re kidding!

MITCHELL: (screams) What about the Russian investigation?

RUSH: Did you hear that? Andrea Mitchell, NBC News: “Does the Comey firing cast a shadow around your talks, gentlemen?” And the Soviet, the Russian foreign minister said, “Was he fired?” Mitchell said, “Yes!” Lavrov: “You’re kidding! You’re kidding!” He was fired?” Mitchell said, “What about the Russian investigation?” What investigation? (chuckling) The trolling here, you just have to love it.

I think Trump’s trolling of the “perpetually aggrieved” was fantastic.

His fighting spirit is one of the reasons that we elected him.

What is being lost in all of this brouhaha, and is, quite possibly the main reason for all of the Democratic “concern” is the fact that without Comey running interference, the Clinton Investigation can be reopened.

Whether the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians (an irony lost on the conspiratorial Democrats perpetuating the Russia-Trump Collusion Fable)  or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation,  as was previously  reported in 2015, or the revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, the whole sordid mess revolving around the 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate is not just a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and Emailgate, Hillary Clinton proved to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cared about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

In conclusion, it was not just one incident which cost Hillary Clinton the Presidency .

It was A LIFETIME OF LIES.

Average Americans, from the Rust Belt to the Bible Belt, were familiar with Mrs. Clinton.

They knew who she was and what she was.

They knew that she would walk 20 miles across the scorching desert sand to tell a lie rather than step across on of Obama’s infamous Red Lines and tell the truth.

Hillary has no one to blame but herself for losing the Presidency to Donald J. Trump.

But, of course, she never will.

For, after all, accepting responsibility for one’s words and actions is as repulsive to a Modern American Liberal as a Crucifix is to a Vampire, jus as she showed in her speech about a “Divided America” the other day, when she “came out of the woods”.

Just like their failed Presidential Candidate, the Democrats and their operatives in the Main Stream Media who have made up all of the Fake News Stories concerning the Russians somehow tampering with the election, refuse to accept the reality that average Americans rejected their political ideology and sent a Citizen Statesman to Washington on November 8, 2016, instead of a Professional Politician.

Donald J. Trump remains the President of the United States of America.

And, all of the “Special Snowflakes” can continue their National Temper Tantrum, if they wish.

For after all,

What difference at this point does it make?

Until He Comes,
