The Democrats’ Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

November 8, 2018

Donald-Trump-smug-feature

Yesterday started out as a great day for the Democratic Party.

They had won the majority of seats in the House of Representatives and were already making plans to use what they perceived as a “bully pulpit” to somehow, someway get rid of Republican President Donald J. Trump, who had the temerity to defeat their candidate, the Chosen One, Hillary Clinton, in the 2018 Presidential Election.

This was their chance to impeach the usurper, using their House Majority Status, the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and the support of the Deep State Operatives in the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats were counting their chickens before they hatched.

And now, to paraphrase the Reverend Jeremiah Wright,

The Democrats’ chickeeens have come home…to roost!

Yesterday morning, the news broke that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had been asked to resign and President Trump had appointed a temporary successor in the form of Matthew Whitaker, Session’s Chief of Staff.

According to FoxNews.com,

Whitaker has previously written an op-ed in 2017 in which he argued that “any investigation into President Trump’s finances or the finances of his family would require Mueller to return to Rod Rosenstein for additional authority under Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.”

Whitaker continued, “If he were to continue to investigate the financial relationships without a broadened scope in his appointment, then this would raise serious concerns that the special counsel’s investigation was a mere witch hunt.” (Trump has repeatedly derided the Mueller probe as a “witch hunt,” characterizing it as a partisan effort to detract from his accomplishments in office.)

“It is time for Rosenstein … to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel,” Whitaker concluded. “If he doesn’t, then Mueller’s investigation will eventually start to look like a political fishing expedition. This would not only be out of character for a respected figure like Mueller, but also could be damaging to the President of the United States and his family — and by extension, to the country.”

And in July 2017, Whitaker told CNN, “I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn’t fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt.”

Of course, both “Chuck U.” Schumer and San Fran Nan Pelosi immediately called for Whitaker to recuse himself from the Russia Investigation, as Sessions did, and to allow Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to remain in place as Mueller’s boss.

Whitaker did not reply to them.

During a press conference yesterday afternoon, President Trump said,

“I could fire everybody right now, but I don’t want to stop it because politically I don’t like stopping it. “I am not concerned about anything with the Russian investigation, because it is a hoax. There is no collusion.”

However, the President is the boss of the Attorney General and the Attorney General is the boss of the Deputy Attorney General.

…And, we all know what rolls downhill.

The icing on the “Victory” Cake which President Trump served the Democrats last night, came in the form of the revoking of the White House Press Credentials of the Democrats’ favorite “reporter” on CNN: Jim Acosta.

Acosta lost his feeble mind at the President’s Press Conference yesterday afternoon, badgering Trump about the caravan of illegal immigrants heading toward our Southern Border.

President Trump finally had enough, putting the belligerent brat in his place like a child who had tried to butt into the conversation at the Adult Table during Thanksgiving Dinner.

Trump told Acosta that he was done, but Acosta refused to give the White House Intern, a young lady, the microphone. When she did get it, he tried to yank it from her in what was no doubt the most unprofessional scene put on by a “news reporter” in the history of Presidential Press Conferences.

When Acosta returned to the White House to set up for a 7:00 p.m. news segment, he was refused entry and his press credentials were taken from him, suspended “indefinitely”.

Of course, CNN is livid as is the rest of the Liberal Main Stream Media.

Considering the way this lout has behaved since before President Trump took office, he had it coming.

Just like his Democratic Party Masters did.

What started out as “iffy”, turned out to be a great day.

While the Democrats were patting themselves on the back and playing politics, President Donald J. Trump was taking care of business.

FBI Admits to Working with Liberal Activist Group, Southern Poverty Law Center

July 29, 2018

untitled (237)

“In our polarized times, radicals use the SPLC’s hate-group designations to justify violence. Politicians and corporations use the designation to marginalize and punish good men and women. Not long ago the Family Research Council narrowly avoided mass murder when a man tried to attack its headquarters. He was inspired in part by the SPLC’s hate-group designation, and his plan was to shoot FRC employees and stuff Chick-fil-A sandwiches into their dead, bleeding mouths.” – David French, Senior Writer, National Review, July 13, 2017

FoxNews.com reports that

A Republican lawmaker is demanding some answers from the FBI after he says the bureau admitted to working with the controversial Southern Poverty Law Center.

In a letter obtained by Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., says the FBI has “admitted to working with the SPLC,” in a development he describes as “surprising and worrisome.”

“This is surprising and worrisome, as the SPLC is known to use its platform in order to denigrate and disparage certain groups by labeling them ‘hate groups,’” he said.

He said that groups such as the Christian Family Research Council (FRC) have been labeled a hate group, while members of “Antifa” — a broad collaboration of left-leaning, anti-fascist activists — have not been given such a label. He added that Floyd Corkins, who shot an FRC employee, later said he targeted the group as the SPLC had labeled it an antigay group.

“The SPLC’s conflation of mainstream political advocacy groups with legitimate hate groups and domestic terror groups is absurd, frequently indiscriminate and dangerous,” he said.

While details on the alleged relationship were not clear, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” reported that the FBI had described the group as “a well-known, established and credible” organization in 2009, and that the agency has briefed the FBI on alleged domestic terror threats in the U.S. 

Gaetz’s letter requests more information on the FBI’s alleged ties to the group, including how much weight the FBI gives to SPLC designations of “hate groups” and what information, if any, the bureau provides to the group.

The FBI confirmed to “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in June that it “continues to have a relationship with the SPLC.”

This week, when pressed on that relationship, the FBI had this to say: “For many years, the FBI has engaged with various organizations, both formally and informally. Such outreach is a critical component of the FBI’s mission, and we welcome information from these organizations on any possible violations of civil rights, hate crimes or other potential crimes or threats. We do, however, evaluate our relationships with these groups as necessary to ensure the appropriateness of any interaction.”

A Department of Justice spokesman said that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had ordered that any such relationships be re-evaluated.

“The attorney general has directed the FBI to re-evaluate their relationships with groups like this to ensure the FBI does not partner with any group that discriminates,” a spokesperson said in a statement.

The center recently apologized and issued a $3.3 million settlement to Maajid Nawaz and his organization, the Quilliam Foundation, for including them in a list of “anti-Muslim extremists.”

“Although we may have our differences with some of the positions that Mr. Nawaz and Quilliam have taken, we recognize that they have made important contributions to efforts to promote pluralism and that they are most certainly not anti-Muslim extremists,” the group said in a statement.

So, just who is this bunch of foaming-at-the-mouth, snot-nosed Liberals known as the SPLC?

Per discoverthenetworks.org

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was founded in 1971 by two young Alabama lawyers, 35-year-old Morris Dees and 28-year-old Joseph Levin, Jr. The latter served as the Center’s legal director from 1971-76, but it was Dees who would emerge as the long-term “face” of the organization. A leftist who views the U.S. as an irredeemably racist nation, Dees, upon launching SPLC, joined forces with an African American who would serve as a perfect complement to him ideologically—the civil-rights activist Julian Bond.

Identifying itself as a “nonprofit civil rights organization” committed to “fighting hate and bigotry” while “seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society,” SPLC describes the United States as a country “seething” with “racial violence” and “intolerance against those who are different.” “Hate in America is a dreadful, daily constant,” says the Center, and violent crimes against members of minority groups like blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, and Arabs/Muslims “are not isolated incidents,” but rather, “eruptions of a nation’s intolerance.” To combat this epidemic of “bigotry,” SPLC dedicates itself to “tracking and exposing” the activities of “hate groups and other extremists throughout the United States.” Specifically, the Center’s “Hate & Extremism” initiative publishes its findings in SPLC’s Hatewatch blog and in its quarterly journal, the Intelligence Report, which claims to be “the nation’s preeminent periodical monitoring the radical right in the U.S.”

SPLC first gained widespread national recognition in 1987, its seventeenth year of activity, by winning a $7 million verdict in a civil lawsuit against the United Klans of America (UKA) for the role that organization had played in the death of a black Alabama teenager. By the time that lawsuit was filed, UKA was already a destitute, impotent, disintegrating entity that virtually all white Americans had emphatically rejected; the SPLC suit merely drove the final nail into the UKA coffin. SPLC boasts that it has likewise won “crushing jury verdicts” that effectively shut down groups like the White Aryan Resistance (with a $12 million judgment in 1991), the White Patriot Party militia, and the Aryan Nations (with a $6.5 million judgment in 2001).

This has been SPLC’s modus operandi since its inception: to initiate “innovative lawsuits” against prominent hate groups for crimes that their individual members commit. In these suits, declares Morris Dees proudly, “We absolutely take no prisoners. When we get into a legal fight we go all the way.” The leftist writer Ken Silverstein, who in 2000 wrote a penetrating exposé of SPLC for Harper’s magazine, notes that the targets of these suits tend to be “mediagenic villains” who are “eager to show off their swastikas for the news cameras.” As Dees and SPLC well understand, such figures stand the best chance of triggering an emotional public response that translates, in turn, into financial contributions from donors eager to combat the perceived threat.

Inflating the Numbers on “Hate”

As of 2016, SPLC identified 892 active “hate groups” in the United States. Asserting that the vast majority of such organizations are “right wing,” the Center says they include “the Ku Klux Klan,” “the neo-Nazi movement,” “neo-Confederates,” “racist skinheads,” “antigovernment militias,” “Christian Identity adherents,” and a variety of “anti-immigrant,” “anti-LGBT,” “anti-Muslim,” and “alternative Right” organizations. While also identifying a tiny smattering of black separatist entities as hate groups, SPLC takes pains to point out that black organizations must be judged by a different standard than their white counterparts, because “much black racism in America is, at least in part, a response to centuries of white racism.” SPLC contends that from 2000 to 2012, the number of hate groups in the U.S. increased by 67%—a surge allegedly “fueled by anger and fear over the nation’s ailing economy, an influx of non-white immigrants, and the diminishing white majority, as symbolized by the election of the nation’s first African-American president”—i.e., Barack Obama. In other words, white Americans’ reflexive bigotry allegedly triggered a host of hate-filled responses to the increased political and cultural influence wielded by nonwhites. And America’s racists, by SPLC’s calculus, are almost unanimously conservatives—as evidenced by the caption featured in the “Hatewatch” section of SPLC’s website: “Hatewatch monitors and exposes the activities of the American radical right.” The radical left gets no mention at all.

2009? What happened in 2009? Oh, yeah. Barack Hussein Obama was inaugurated as 44th President of the United States of America and the Federal Government, the DOF and the FBI included took a severe turn to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum.

It was during this time, that the Professional Bureaucrats in the Hierarchy of the DOJ and the FBI pledged their loyalty to “The Lightbringer” and his “Democratic Socialist” Political Ideology, which he so feverishly attempted to install in the place of America’s Constitutional Republic system of government which our Founders bequeathed us.

For the Administration and the FBI at that time to identify the SPLC as “well-known, established, and credible” gives you a clue as to just how incestuous the relationship between the Obama Administration and all of the 501 non-profit organizations like Obama’s own Organizing for America, and the SPLC, was.

As troubling a past as all of that was, it is the present that is even more troubling.

Why did Attorney General Jeff Sessions not instruct the FBI Director to examine the Bureau’s relationships with all of disruptive Far Left Organizations like the SPLC when he took office at the beginning of the Trump Administration?

And, here’s another thought…

What sort of role has these Far Left Organizations been covertly playing in the effort of the DOJ/FBI Deep State Operatives to sabotage and depose President Trump?

If the FBI has more “friends” like the Southern Poverty Law Center, they literally have a network of Far Left Shadow Operatives possibly  working to bring down the current Administration.

Talk about your spy novel. That whirring sound that you are hearing is the sound of Tom Clancy spinning like a pin-wheel in his grave.

It is time to remove Jeff Sessions from the position of Attorney General and get someone in who will clean house at the DOJ and the FBI and cut ties with intolerant hate mongers like the Southern Poverty Law Center.

It is time for the DOJ and FBI to place law and order as their first priority, instead of prioritizing doing the bidding of Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party.

Why Didn’t Dems Care About “Separated Families” Under Obama’s ATEP?

June 18, 2018

1528204092329

FoxNews.com reports that

The head of the Department of Homeland Security bashed the media Sunday for their reporting on the increasingly volatile immigration controversy, writing in a string of tweets: “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.”

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen added: “This misreporting by Members, press & advocacy groups must stop. It is irresponsible and unproductive. As I have said many times before, if you are seeking asylum for your family, there is no reason to break the law and illegally cross between ports of entry.”

She noted that no one is “breaking the law by seeking asylum at a port of entry.”

The head of the Department of Homeland Security bashed the media Sunday for their reporting on the increasingly volatile immigration controversy, writing in a string of tweets: “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.”

The Trump administration, which has called it “horrible” that illegal-immigrant children are sometimes separated from their parents when their parents enter criminal proceedings, has been criticized in recent weeks for increasing the prosecutions of illegal immigrants under a “zero-tolerance” policy that critics say leads to those separations.

A child illegally entering the U.S. is generally separated from adults at the border if the child is in danger, has no clear relationship to the adult, or if the adult enters criminal proceedings.

Through Twitter, Nielsen reiterated that current policies are derived from laws already in the books: “For those seeking asylum at ports of entry, we have continued the policy from previous Administrations and will only separate if the child is in danger, there is no custodial relationship between ‘family’ members, or if the adult has broken a law.”

She added: “DHS takes very seriously its duty to protect minors in our temporary custody from gangs, traffickers, criminals and abuse.”

This push by the Democrats and their Vanguard, the Main Stream Media, to paint the President as a heartless monster is very hypocritical and disingenuous.

Per rewire.news,

The practice of separating immigrant families at the border isn’t new.

The Alien Transfer Exit Program

The United States since 2008 has had a policy called the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP), which detains male Mexican migrants near the border and, instead of repatriating them to their area of origin, leaves them hundreds—and sometimes thousands—of miles away at the opposite end of the U.S.-Mexico border. They are often released from custody at unusual times of day in completely unfamiliar areas where they have no family or other support system. The practice is supposed to deter further border crossing attempts, but instead it subjects migrants to crime and danger.

In 2011, the Alien Transfer Exit Program affected an estimated one-fifth of migrants detained by Border Patrol along the southwest border. That’s because ATEP ramped up under the Obama administration as a way to handle the spike in Mexican migrants attempting to enter the United States.

…“Under the transfer program, many immigrants who are caught in California are flown to Texas border cities, and the flights return west filled with immigrants caught in Texas. In Arizona, immigrant groups are divided, with some deported through Texas and others through California,” the Los Angeles Times reported at the time.

Federal immigration agencies have long claimed that ATEP “breaks the smuggling cycle by physically separating aliens from the smuggling organizations that will repeatedly attempt to bring guide them into this country,” but the program—called “cruel and unusual punishment” by human rights’ advocates—has separated families.

‘Lateral Repatriation’ Is Family Separation

While ATEP targets Mexican men attempting to enter the United States, the program doesn’t just nab men traveling alone. Men migrating with their families are separated from them, detained, and transported to an unfamiliar place in Mexico, while their partners and children are left to languish in detention centers. In 2011, during the height of ATEP, almost none of the reporting about the program focused on family separation.

The Arizona-based organization No More Deaths refers to ATEP as “lateral repatriation,” noting that the program often separates family members and purposely sends them to cities far from one other. Families aren’t notified of where each member ends up, leaving them unaware of where their partners and children are.

In other words, gentle readers, the Democrats really do not care about these “poor separated children”.

If they actually did, they would have protested ATEP under Obama.

Just like Obama used children as human political props after the Sandy Hook Massacre and Democratic Activists have been using children in school walkouts to try to achieve the taking away of guns from Americans, this sudden “concern” over the welfare of the children of those who wish to illegally enter our Sovereign Nation is nothing but a political ploy.

It is a plan born out of a Democratic desperation to avoid a Republican Sweep in the Midterm Elections by somehow damaging President Trump.

I mean, they had to do SOMETHING.

Mueller and his investigators have produced nothing but a big fat zero in their attempt to prove that the Russians got Trump elected President.

The Dems’ “Stormy” attempt to re-invent a porn actress into a saint fizzled out.

Their attacks on the integrity of the Trump Marriage through accusations of spousal abuse after Melania was under doctor’s orders to stay at home after her kidney surgery just brought the MSM more ridicule.

And, De Niro showing his hindquarters hasn’t helped the Democrats , either.

So, they decided to prove that they are the “Party That Cares” by trying to “protect the children” through staging photo ops of them attempting to forcibly enter the centers where the illegal immigrant children are being cared for.

Heck, if they actually cared about the welfare of children, they wouldn’t advocate for a million of them to be yanked out of their mothers’ wombs every year in America.

Oh, the irony.

God help us.

McCabe Sues DOJ Over Firing Just Before IG Report Release…Squirrel!

June 13, 2018

untitled (244)

Remember when you were a child and you did something wrong, like breaking your Mom’s favorite vase and when she asked you about it, you claimed that you did not know what happened?

A disgraced Former Deputy Director of the FBI and his lawyers are attempting the same strategy.

FoxNews.com reports that

Lawyers representing former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe filed a suit against the Justice Department and FBI on Tuesday, alleging that they wouldn’t give up files connected to his ouster.

McCabe’s lawyers claimed the Justice Department has denied access to the sought-after information out of concern that the documents could be later used against them, the lawsuit said. The suit also named the office of the DOJ inspector general.

“We don’t create or adjudicate under secret law or procedure,” David Snyder, a lawyer representing McCabe, told The Associated Press.

A representative for the Justice Department did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

McCabe was fired in March just a few days shy of his retirement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions after it was reported that McCabe leaked a story to the press and later lied about it to former FBI Director James Comey.

His dismissal followed a report from the inspector general’s office earlier this year that concluded McCabe repeatedly deceived investigators. It referred the matter for potential criminal prosecution to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington. McCabe has denied the allegations and said that when he thought his answers were being misunderstood during interviews with investigators, he tried to correct the record.

According to the lawsuit, McCabe’s firing came after “proceedings that violated federal law and departed from applicable administrative rules, standards, policies and procedures.” It noted that the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires related documents to be produced for review.

“Defendants, however, have not disclosed those materials, whether proactively or upon request from Plaintiff as counsel for Mr. McCabe. That failure is contrary to law,” the lawsuit said. “It is incongruous with Defendants’ public, and repeated, representations to the effect that Mr. McCabe was dismissed from the FBI following an ‘extensive and fair investigation’ which was carried out ‘according to Department of Justice procedure.'”

McCabe’s lawyers signaled they wanted “immediate” access to documents including an inspector general manual outlining the guidelines governing the office and FBI policy guides on how disciplinary matters should be handled.

McCabe’s lawyers said they wanted the records as they “seek to vindicate Mr. McCabe’s rights and restore his good name,” and as they weighed whether to take more legal action.

Why should you have been fired, Former Deputy Director McCade?

Well, for starters a very revealing report was issued by the Department of Justice back in April, revealed that you misled investigators multiple times about your role in a news media leak. The report states that investigators

“…concluded that McCabe’s decision to confirm the existence of the CF Investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior Department official in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception.”

Also…

The DOJ’s April report found that McCabe authorized a leak to a Wall Street Journal reporter about the contents of a telephone call in August 2016.

“Among the purposes of the disclosure was to rebut a narrative that had been developing following a story in the WSJ on October 23, 2016, that questioned McCabe’s impartiality in overseeing FBI investigations involving [Clinton], and claimed that McCabe had ordered the termination of the [FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation] due to Department of Justice pressure,” the report says.

In January, The Journal reported that McCabe knew of thousands of emails related to the Clinton investigation for at least a month before Comey told Congress about them. 

The day he was fired, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement that “the FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability.” 

About that whole “integrity” thingy…

McCabe’s wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, ran for a Virginia State Senate seat in 2015. The political action committee for then-Virginia Governor McAuliffe, a Democrat and Clinton ally, donated $467,500 to her campaign, while the Virginia Democratic party gave $207,788, The Journal reported. Andrew McCabe was associate deputy director of the FBI at the time.

McCabe “played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind,” the FBI told The Journal in a statement. “Months after the completion of her campaign, then-Associate Deputy Director McCabe was promoted to Deputy, where, in that position, he assumed for the first time, an oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails.”

Even with McAuliffe’s help, Dr. McCabe lost the election.

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

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

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

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

And now, with the Inspector General’s Report on the activities of the FBI concerning their involvement with Hillary Clinton’s “E-mailgate”, one of those whose activities will most certainly be included in said report is throwing a “Hail Mary” Legal Maneuver” in hopes of distracting from the fact that he knows exactly why he was fired.

Just as Former FBI Director James Comey published a book and went on a press tour in order to attempt to cover his duplicitous activities, so is Former Deputy Director McCabe attempting to change the public’s perception of him by acting “innocent”.

Considering how poorly Comey’s effort was received, one would have thought that McCabe would have learned a lesson.

It appears that he hasn’t.

However, he had better “study up on it”.

There will be a “Pop Quiz” tomorrow.

Until He Comes,

Trump’s Lawyers Ask Judge to Block Feds From Reviewing Cohen “Privileged Communications”

April 16, 2018

consti-crisis-600-la.jpg

TheHill.com reports that

Lawyers for President Trump wrote a federal judge on Sunday asking her to halt federal prosecutors from reviewing documents seized in Michael Cohen’s office and home, arguing that the Department of Justice cannot fairly evaluate the materials.

A trio of lawyers for the president wrote to Judge Kimba Wood in the Southern District of New York to request Trump and Cohen be allowed to identify privileged communications prior to a fuller review.

Trump’s lawyers – Joanna Hendon, Christopher Dysard and Reed Keefe – wrote that potentially privileged information was seized during the raid. They argue that Trump should be able to review those documents before a taint team made up of federal agents and prosecutors to ensure his right to attorney-client privilege.

“The President, the public, and the government have a vital interest in ensuring the integrity of the privilege review process, and the taint team procedure is plainly inadequate to the task,” the lawyers wrote, according to a copy of the letter published by Talking Points Memo. “There is, as well, cause for concern that a taint team could not evaluate Mr. Cohen’s files (and, in particular, those relating to the president) fairly,” they continued, arguing that prosecutors would be disinclined to see certain communications as privileged.

Trump has criticized his own Justice Department on multiple occasions, focusing on Attorney General Jeff Sessions and special counsel Robert Mueller in particular.

Cohen, who has worked as Trump’s lawyer for years, had his office and hotel room raided last week. He is reportedly under investigation for bank fraud and campaign finance law violations.

Federal agents reportedly seized bank records, communications between Cohen and Trump, and documents related to related to payments to two women who alleged they had an affair with the president more than a decade ago.

Prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrants for the raid “in part” based on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office, which prompted President Trump to launch a series of attacks on Mueller and his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

So, would someone, anyone, please tell this ol’ cracka what in the name of Dow Jones and all his little averages does a “Get Lost!” Payment made to a gold-digging you-know-what by a private citizen’s lawyer have to do with any sort of covert or nefarious actions taken by Trump or his Campaign Staff long after that payment was made?

And, what the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks does an “affair” which has yet to be proven have to do with a fairly elected United States President’s ability to do his job?

As I have written before, this entire Stormy Daniels kerfluffle is the height of irony.

Those who wish to dispose of President Trump through impeachment or any means necessary expect America to make some sort of noble heroine out of a woman who for years has made a living on her back.

This is the same bunch who thought that Hillary would win in a landslide.

Per Breitbart.com,

Despite weeks and weeks of media hype about porn star Stormy Daniels, not only has President Trump’s job approval rating jumped in the latest Quinnipiac poll, but only 23 percent of Americans believe the alleged affair is an important issue. A massive majority of 73 percent say it is not.
Even 51 percent of Democrats agree it is not an important issue, along with 79 percent of Independents. Moreover, there is also no notable gender gap on the question.

In worse news for the media, although Trump denies the affair, by a margin of 58 – 14 percent they do not believe him but they still do not care.

By a margin of 59 – 24 percent, people also believe Trump knew about the $130,000 payoff to silence Daniels (Trump denies being told about it). But by a margin of 59 – 38  percent, they say Trump’s possible knowledge of the payoff is not an important issue — this includes 63 percent of Independents. And again there is no notable gender gap on the question.

Quinnipiac sums up the Stormy findings this way, “Yes he did it. No we don’t care. A big yawn from voters on Stormy Daniels, President Trump and the payoff.”

I will take Breitbart’s analysis a step further.

This poll means that not only do the overwhelming majority of Americans not care, they do not buy what the Democrats and their Vanguard, the Main Stream Media, are selling.

You want to know why, gentle readers?

The old adage remains true:

Americans vote with their pocketbooks.

“It’s the Economy, stupid!”

Taxes have been cut. Americans are seeing more of their hard-eared money on their paychecks. And, more Americans are actually receiving paychecks.

So, go ahead Deep State Operatives.

Try to somehow link a two-bit …err…woman of ill repute, a private citizen’s lawyer (Trump WAS a private citizen at the time), and a Russia Collusion Case based on a discredited Dossier compiled by people of questionable character.

That dog wouldn’t hunt even if you waved a stained blue dress in front of it.

The majority of Americans will laugh at you and count their extra money.

And, all the Democrats will see out of it will be a backlash at the polls this November in the Mid-Term Elections.

Holder Tells Sessions to Say “No” to Trump…The Real Reason Why He’s Back

March 20, 2018

th6PE7PEY6

Howdy, gentle readers.

Guess who has turned up again, like a reoccurring case of toenail fungus?

FoxNews.com reports that

Former Attorney General Eric Holder criticized Jeff Sessions Monday night for his role in the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — saying that Sessions must “have the guts to look at the president every now and again and say ‘no.'”

Sessions fired McCabe on Friday, two days before McCabe’s scheduled retirement date. McCabe, a regular target of President Trump’s ire, has suggested that his departure was part of what he described as the administration’s “war on the FBI.”

Speaking at Georgetown University, Holder accused Sessions of rushing to fire McCabe at Trump’s behest.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder criticized Jeff Sessions Monday night for his role in the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — saying that Sessions must “have the guts to look at the president every now and again and say ‘no.'”

Sessions fired McCabe on Friday, two days before McCabe’s scheduled retirement date. McCabe, a regular target of President Trump’s ire, has suggested that his departure was part of what he described as the administration’s “war on the FBI.”

Speaking at Georgetown University, Holder accused Sessions of rushing to fire McCabe at Trump’s behest.

Trump had repeatedly condemned McCabe over the last year as emblematic of an FBI leadership he contends is biased against his administration. On Saturday, hours after McCabe was dismissed, Trump tweeted that it was a “great day for Democracy” and a “great day for the hard-working men and women of the FBI.”

Holder said Trump’s verbal assaults on McCabe were “unconscionable” and “punching down.”

“You’re the president of the United States and you’re going after a career deputy FBI director … who doesn’t really have the capacity to defend himself, certainly while he was in that position,” he told Mo Elleithee, the executive director of Georgetown’s Institute of Politics & Public Service.

And?

Gentle readers, I just about spewed Diet Coke all over my screen when Former AG Eric Holder advised current AG Jeff Sessions to tell President Trump “No”.

Holder never told Obama no. I guarantee that his response was always,

Yes, sir. Yes. sir, Three bags full.

So, why is Holder speaking out about things happening in the Trump Administration all of a sudden.

Why is he so concerned?

Well…

The Justice Department said Wednesday it will turn over documents withheld by former Attorney General Eric Holder related to the Operation Fast and Furious scandal during the Obama administration.

The Justice Department entered into a conditional settlement agreement with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The settlement agreement was filed in federal court in Washington D.C., and ends six years of litigation arising out of the previous administration’s refusal to produce records requested by the committee.

“The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Wednesday. “This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious.”

For those of you who don’t remember or those of you like Holder, who would like to forget, Fast and Furious was a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) operation in which the Obama Administration criminals to buy guns in Phoenix-area shops as a part of a strategy to track them as they were transported into Mexico.

However, the ATF lost track of more than 1,400 of the 2,000 guns which they allowed smugglers to buy. Additionally…and tragically, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot and killed as a result of the botched operation.

Holder’s attempt to play the part of a righteous man and moral arbiter is enough to produce giggles or downright guffaws.

Holder came to the Obama Administration from a law firm which represented Islamic Terrorists and which was investigated for Foreclosure Fraud, by the name of Covington & Burling.

While Attorney General, he became Igor to Obama’s Dr. Frankenstein, serving as henchman to Obama as they carried out Obama’s mission of dividing the once-United States of America through the Rhetoric of intentional Racial Division and of Class Warfare.

Remember the late thug Michael Brown and the Ferguson Riots?

Obama sent Holder to that small Missouri Town, where he proceeded to fan the flames, in order that Obama’s quest for power through Racial Division would continue.

As Attorney General, Holder was just another Deep State Henchman, whose loyalty was not to America or “Justice For All”, but to the Liberal’s distorted, Marxist view of it known as “Social Justice”.

Holder has reappeared on the scene to cause further disruption to the Trump Presidency and to give the New Bolsheviks who are still engaging in their National Temper Tantrum over losing the 2016 Presidential Election another washed up Democrat to idolize.

Oh, and if you haven’t figured it out by now…Holder is also feverishly attempting to deflect from the release of these Fast and Furious Documents in order to save his own sorry…err…umm…self.

The United States Vs. California

March 7, 2018

3167762_1280x720

FoxNews.com reported last night that

The Trump Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday night against California, saying three recently-passed state laws were deliberately interfering with federal immigration policies.

It marked the latest legal and political confrontation with the nation’s most populous state, which the federal government says has repeatedly stood in the way of its plans to step up enforcement actions in the workplace and against criminal aliens.

“The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions was expected to tell California law enforcement officers on Wednesday. “We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America.”

The state’s Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, fired back: “At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divide and polarize America. Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here. SAD!!!”

Federal officials are seeking an injunction to immediately block enforcement of the three California laws, each enacted within the past year.

One of those laws offers additional worker protections against federal immigration enforcement actions. Senior Justice Department officials have said it’s prevented companies from voluntarily cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.

Employers are mandated under the law to demand ICE agents present a warrant or subpoena before entering certain areas of the premises, or when accessing some employee records.

Some companies have complained they’ve felt torn between trying to comply with seemingly contradictory state and federal statutes, since penalties for non-compliance can be steep from both entities.

Another state law dubbed known by critics as the “sanctuary state” bill protects immigrants without legal residency by limiting state and municipal cooperation with the feds, including what information can be shared about illegal-immigrant inmates.

A third law gives state officials the power to monitor and inspect immigrant detention facilities either run directly by, or contracted through, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

In other words, in a Bizarro World type of affirmation of the autonomy of states, the State of California (the World’s Biggest Bowl of Granola, what ain’t fruits and nuts “is” flakes) and Gov. Moonbeam decided that those who have come here illegally have the same rights as those of us who were born here or who came to our Sovereign Nation in a legal manner.

Why are Governor Moonbeam and his Fellow California Liberals refusing to abide by our nation’s laws by passing bogus “laws” of their own and continuing to HARBOR FUGITIVES?

Liberals, on both sides of the Political Aisle, have continuously masked their true intentions for the political usefulness, in their incessant push to grant blanket amnesty to Illegal Aliens, by swathing it in the noble rhetoric of “Civil Rights” and “Social Justice”.

What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, they are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens.

And, yet, even as I write this, they are in our hospitals, taking advantage of our charity and the finest health care system in the world, and driving our streets, with either forged drivers licenses or those obtained from states who have acquiesced and given them to these “undocumented workers”.

This is in no way the human rights issue that Liberals insist it to be.

Freedom is God-given, and with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way.

The bogus laws put in place in California were not the result of a sort of “righteous indignation” or “defense of the downtrodden”.

They were put in place to secure the existence of future Democrat Voters.

Liberals talk a good game, however, as was shown this week with their willingness to allow the DACA Deadline to pass without even a whimper, they will defend the “rights” of illegal immigrants only up to a certain point. And, when that defense is no longer politically expedient, i.e., in their best interest, they will drop it like they were holding a flat screen television and got caught going out the front door with a security spider wrap on it at the neighbor Walmart.

I believe that it was the indefensible actions of the Mayor of Oakland which was the catalyst in Trump getting Sessions to do something.

She warned the illegals in her area that there was going to be an ICE Raid. Estimates are that ICE missed out apprehending 800 illegal aliens because of her interference. Those they missed included individuals who had committed violent crimes.

The DOJ is looking into the Mayor’s actions with the possibility of filing federal charges against her.

I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children.  We are all immigrants in this land, except for American Indians, and they got here by crossing the Bering Straight.  But there is a huge difference between immigrating here legally and sneaking in illegally, between assimilating into an existing culture, and insisting on replacing a country’s existing culture with that of the country you left.

I’m all for assisting anyone in becoming a legal citizen of the United States, if that is their wish.  But, it must be done the right way, and they must accept responsibility for their illegal entry, show a willingness to learn our language, and embrace our American way of life, including respecting the American Flag.

America became a great nation because it is a melting pot of American-born and legally immigrated citizens with a shared allegiance, not a multi-cultural United Nations with everyone loyal to their home country.

Too many brave Americans have died to keep our flag flying over our Sovereign Nation for that flag to be flown below any other country’s.

America First.

Information is Mounting About the FBI’s “Secret Society” and the “Silent Coup”. Here’s Some Info You Didn’t Know…

January 24, 2018

fbi-steroids-nrd-600

“You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there’s no big ‘there’ there.” – from an E-mail sent by FBI Agent Peter Strzok to FBI Lawyer Lisa Page, concerning the “Trump Collusion Investigation”

Politico.com reports that

Amid new signs that special counsel Robert Mueller is pursuing an obstruction of justice case against President Donald Trump, Republicans in Congress have intensified their own investigations of the Justice Department’s and FBI’s handling of inquiries into Trump’s ties to Russia.

Tuesday brought several dramatic developments in the Russia saga, including the news that Mueller recently interviewed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the first cabinet official known to be questioned in the investigation. The New York Times also reported that former FBI Director James Comey was interviewed by Mueller last year.

But even as Mueller showed apparent momentum, Republicans made new charges of political bias and even potential criminal misconduct in the nation’s top law enforcement agencies.

On Fox News, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), chairman of the House committee that oversees the Justice Department and FBI, alleged an anti-Trump “conspiracy” by FBI agents whose text message exchanges have been made public in selective bursts by GOP lawmakers.

“Some of these texts are very disturbing,” Goodlatte said, adding, “They illustrate a conspiracy on the part of some people, and we want to know a lot more about that.”

Republicans have been particularly incensed by a new revelation from the FBI that five months of text messages between a senior counterintelligence agent in the bureau, Peter Strzok — who was dismissed from Mueller’s team for unspecified reasons in July — and FBI attorney Lisa Page appear to be missing. The bureau revealed to Congress over the weekend that it hadn’t retained the messages, which officials attributed to technical problems with the bureau’s storage system.

Meanwhile, congressional Republicans pushing to release a secret memo they have drafted based on classified intelligence — which they claim reveals anti-Trump bias in the FBI — got a boost on Tuesday from the White House, which called for “full transparency” on the issue.

Separately, a GOP lawmaker on the House Judiciary Committee indicated that there were plans to recall Comey to testify about his handling of the 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton.

Congressional Democrats say it’s no accident that the GOP probes have escalated as Mueller has homed in on Trump’s top allies. Reps. Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler and Elijah Cummings, the top Democrats on three GOP-led committees unearthing internal FBI documents, say the Republican efforts smack of a partisan campaign to protect the president and sully the investigators who have questioned his behavior.

“Republicans are now attacking the FBI in order to undermine Special Counsel Mueller and protect President Trump, but their claims are directly at odds with the facts,” the three Democrats said in a joint statement on Tuesday afternoon.

Republicans have seized on text messages between Strzok and Page that were recently turned over by the Justice Department. In batches posted by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) and described on Fox News by Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), the agents have been portrayed as politically biased against Trump, with some ambiguous messages characterized as evidence that their official actions may have been tainted by partisan animus.

In one exchange, Strzok and Page indicated that the Justice Department and FBI knew Clinton would escape charges in the investigation of her handling of classified information even before the FBI interviewed her.

In an interview, Ratcliffe said that exchange, among others, called into question Comey’s testimony before the committee in September 2016, when he said the bureau didn’t decide against prosecuting Clinton until after her official interview. Ratcliffe, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said that he expected the committee to demand a new interview with Comey to reconcile those “inconsistencies.”

“There’s a mountain of evidence — a growing mountain of evidence — that seems entirely inconsistent with what he said under oath,” said Ratcliffe, a former U.S. attorney who has become a central player in the committee’s investigation of the FBI’s conduct in 2016.

“He may have testified truthfully, but there’s a lot of stuff that says that he didn’t,” Ratcliffe continued, adding: “Trust me: He will either appear and testify or he will exercise his Fifth Amendment right” against self-incrimination.

Ratcliffe said that recalling Comey might have to wait until lawmakers can interview other witnesses and review up to 1.2 million relevant documents that the Justice Department has begun turning over in batches. But the House Intelligence Committee is mounting a more immediate push to make public a classified memo that Republicans have indicated will provide evidence of misconduct by FBI officials in their handling of a surveillance program that was used to spy on a Trump campaign aide in 2016.

As early as next Wednesday, the panel is expected to employ a never-before-used process to disclose the memo, put together by staff of its chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). If it does, Trump will have up to five days to either approve or reject their decision. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to say what Trump would do, but she endorsed “full transparency.”

“We certainly support full transparency, and we believe that’s at the House Intel Committee to make that choice at this point,” Sanders said at the White House press briefing on Tuesday.

Democrats who have viewed the memo have rejected it as a compilation of “distortions” that misrepresents the underlying intelligence it’s based on.

In the middle of the increasingly pitched partisan offensives, the FBI announced that chief of staff James Rybicki — a former member of Comey’s close-knit team — would leave the agency and be replaced by an ally of Comey’s successor, Christopher Wray.

Rybicki was interviewed last week by the House oversight and judiciary committees, and lawmakers involved in the interview say they didn’t believe that anything in his testimony precipitated his departure. But a Democrat who was in the room said he worried that the grilling Rybicki and others have faced could have a chilling effect on the activity of FBI officials.

“What I really fear, ultimately, is the administration is beginning to force out or drive out of the FBI people that they perceive to be unfriendly to the administration or somehow politically not in alignment with them,” the Democrat said in a phone interview.

“We cannot have a situation where we’re administering loyalty test to officials at the FBI,” he said, adding that that’s “what differentiates the FBI here from law enforcement in banana republics.”

Now, THAT’s funny. A member of the Far Left-controlled Democratic Party, whose party’s mission nowadays is to turn the United States into a Democratic Socialist Nation, worrying about Republicans turning America into a “Banana Republic”.

But, I digress.

Those missing e-mails between Strzok and Page are important for several reasons, which all steam from what we already know:

Strzok, according to the New York Times, is “considered one of the most experienced and trusted F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators” and was a top investigator in Mueller’s Trump-Russian Collusion Magical Mystery Hunt. He was demoted to a human resources position after the initial discovery of the texts which were sent to FBI Lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was having an extramarital affair.

Additionally, CNN reported that Strzok was involved in changing the language FBI Director James Comey used in his July 2016 statement to describe Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information. The language was reportedly changed from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless”. The language was changed in order to make it softer and therefore less damaging to Clinton.

Add that to the fact that Strzok KNEW that nothing was going to happen to Clinton, and you start to get the feeling that you are smack dab in the middle of a conspiracy at the higher levels of our government, designed to circumvent both the Constitution and the right of American Citizens to choose our President.

We also know that 16 members of the Mueller Investigate Team are Democrat Party Donors and that Mueller and others worked for the huge, prestigious law firm of WilmerHale.

Oh, you didn’t know?

Well…

If you look at the Total Percentage of Political Contributions made by this 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….

Just for fun, let’s look at 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 a year now, we have been hearing 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?

Additionally, Mueller’s involvement in the Uranium One Democratic Collusion with Russia places him in another position of possible Conflict of Interest. Even if he is the man of integrity that all of the Washington Establishment claims him to be, the activities of the FBI Before, during, and after the Uranium One Deal and during the past ten months have been less than exemplary, to say the least.

Mueller’s history with the FBI, the WilmerHale Law Firm, and as a Washington Democratic Establishment Insider has placed him in an untenable position.

He must resign immediately.

Meanwhile AG Sessions needs to assign a Special Prosecutor to investigate not only the FBI and DOJ, but Former President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

They tried to rig the 2016 Presidential Election through the use of a “Secret Society” of Federal Bureaucrats, loyal to them.

This whole deal is like something that you would see happening in a Third World Country.

Talk about a “Banana Republic”…the Deep State’s “Secret Society” almost turned America into one.

AG and DOJ Conducting “E-mailgate” and Clinton Foundation Investigations. Why This is Necessary.

January 5, 2018

untitled (215)

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

The New York Daily News reports that

The Justice Department is taking another look at Hillary Clinton’s private email server, according to a report.

Investigators are going to look at how the former secretary of state’s team dealt with classified information sent over the server, according to an ally of Attorney General Jeff Sessions who spoke with the Daily Beast.

News of the rejuvenated probe comes two days after President Trump suggested in a tweet that top Clinton aide Huma Abedin be jailed for “disregarding basic security protocols.”

It was the latest statement from the commander-in-chief over his former Democratic opponent’s email usage. In early December, he wrote: “Many people in our Country are asking what the ‘Justice’ Department is going to do about the fact that totally Crooked Hillary, AFTER receiving a subpoena from the United States Congress, deleted and ‘acid washed’ 33,000 Emails? No justice!”

DOJ investigators will look at how classified information was sent over the server in Clinton’s Westchester basement, who fired it off and how much was turned up in past probes, those familiar with the Justice Department’s mindset told the Daily Beast.

An email dump by the State Department last week showed emails marked classified from Abedin were on her then-husband Anthony Weiner’s computer.

Whether those emails were classified when they were sent wasn’t immediately clear.

Nor was it apparent when federal officials decided to take a fresh look at the emails.

The DOJ declined to comment.

Stephen Boyd, assistant attorney general for legislative affairs, signaled in a Nov. 13 letter to House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) the department was interested in the messages.

Sessions, he wrote, “directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues” that Goodlatte wanted to know about.

Officials planned to “make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened,” Boyd added in the letter.

Trump made Clinton’s use of a private email server a top campaign issue. Federal investigators determined in summer 2016 that, while the use of the server was careless, the former top diplomat didn’t knowingly break any laws.

The former New York senator blamed then-FBI Director James Comey reopening the case right before the election on her shocking loss.

Trump has called for Clinton to be investigated even after winning the election. He’s also blamed Comey, who he fired in May, for allegedly letting Clinton get away without any charges.

The DOJ’s inspector general is expected to release a report this spring over the FBI’s investigation.

FoxNews.com also reports that

The Justice Department has launched a new investigation into allegations the Clinton Foundation used “pay to play” politics while Hillary Clinton was U.S. secretary of state, Fox News has confirmed.

A source familiar with the investigation told Fox News late Thursday the investigation is being led by the U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI in Little Rock, Ark.

Fox News also has learned investigators are looking into whether the Clinton Foundation violated tax law. Accusers of “pay to play” have claimed the foundation promised favors in exchange for donations or pledges of cash or gifts.

The Hill, which broke the story Thursday evening, added that FBI agents have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month.

The witness said that agents inquired specifically about donations to Clinton entities and official government actions during Clinton’s leadership of the State Department under President Obama, according to the Hill.

The Hill reported that law enforcement officials said there will be “additional activities” relating to the investigation in the coming weeks.

In a statement to Fox News, Clinton Foundation spokesman Craig Minassian suggested that the organization had done nothing improper.

“Time after time, the Clinton Foundation has been subjected to politically motivated allegations, and time after time these allegations have been proven false,” Minassian said. “None of this has made us waver in our mission to help people.”

Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill told Fox News that the investigation is an attempt by the Trump administration to distract the public.

“Let’s call this what it is: A sham,” Merrill said. “This is a philanthropy that does life-changing work, which Republicans have tried to turn into a political football.  It  began with a long-debunked project spearheaded by Steve Bannon during the presidential campaign.  It continues with Jeff Sessions doing Trump’s bidding by heeding his calls to meddle with a department that is supposed to function independently. The goal is to distract from the indictments, guilty pleas, and accusations of treason from Trump’s own people at the expense of our justice system’s integrity. It’s disgraceful, and should be concerning to all Americans.”

Late last year, Attorney General Jeff Sessions told prosecutors to evaluate “certain issues” raised by congressional Republicans cocerning alleged unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation, leading to speculation about the potential appointment of another special counsel.

In September, the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch said that emails from Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s account showed Clinton Foundation donors requesting and receiving favors from the State Department.

Federal investigators are also reviewing Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, according to The Daily Beast.

Just how corrupt was the pipeline between the Clinton Foundation and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?

Per discoverthenetworks.org,

By the time Clinton left office in February 2013, the charity had received millions of dollars in new or increased payments from at least seven foreign governments. Five of the governments came on board during her tenure as secretary of state while two doubled or tripled their support in that time, according to data provided by CHAI spokeswoman Daley…CHAI should have told the State Department before accepting donations totaling $340,000 from Switzerland’s Agency for Development and Cooperation in 2011 and 2012. However, it did not believe U.S. authorities needed to review the other six governments, including Britain and Australia, she said, citing various reasons.” [Reuters, 3/19/15]

However, it was not just governments who sent money to the Clintons through their Foundation. Again, according to discoverthenetworks.org…

* “The Clinton Foundation swore off donations from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. That didn’t stop the foundation from raising millions of dollars from foreigners with connections to their home governments, a review of foundation disclosures shows. Some donors have direct ties to foreign governments. One is a member of the Saudi royal family. Another is a Ukrainian oligarch and former parliamentarian. Others are individuals with close connections to foreign governments that stem from their business activities. Their professed policy interests range from human rights to U.S.-Cuba relations.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

* During Secretary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, “More than a dozen foreign individuals and their foundations and companies were large donors to the Clinton Foundation… collectively giving between $34 million and $68 million…. Some donors also provided funding directly to charitable projects sponsored by the foundation, valued by the organization at $60 million.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

Whether the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians in the Uranium One Deal 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 was 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 to E-mailgate and the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton proved herself 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.

As I have previously written, Clinton’s trail of corruption leads all the way back to when she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee for dishonesty.

However, to practice “Pay-For-Play” on a Global Scale, while holding the Office of Secretary of State of the United States of America,  issues downright treasonous.

Why did she do it?

Michael Goodwin, in a column for the New York Post, written last August, offered the following spot-on analysis:

The easy answers about why she did what she did are too obvious: She wanted to get rich and she didn’t want anyone to know her business.

Throw in her chronic paranoia and sense of entitlement, and she and Hubby Dearest had a rationale for thinking they were above the law. They’d escaped his impeachment trial, so they believed they had lifetime immunity.

All true, but too simple, and it’s impossible to believe that’s all there is. There has to be more, probably something so big and awful, it would destroy her if it’s discovered.

Remember, the Clintons were absolutely determined to get back to the White House, which would be the ultimate vindication of their public lives. Victory would make them unique in American history, so it doesn’t make sense that they would risk throwing it all away for the obvious — and ordinary — benefits already revealed.

The added riches they collected through what I believe are corrupt actions weren’t necessary. They were getting legitimately rich on his and her book contracts alone.

And what difference would another donation make to the foundation, which was already swimming in more money than it could spend?

Because none of this adds up to a coherent explanation, I believe we are still in the dark about a hidden bombshell. There must be a secret Unholy Grail that explains her self-destructive behavior of stonewalling and lying.

I won’t speculate on what the Clintons are hiding because my gifts of imagination are no match for theirs. They always had a knack for pioneering new ways of selling access. No president had ever thought of renting out the Lincoln Bedroom until they did it.

The sleazy act that so outraged the nation then seems positively quaint now, thanks to the creative ways they’ve monetized power since leaving the White House. Now they could afford to buy the furniture they tried to steal on their way out the door then!

Of course, I could be wrong. I could be giving them far too much credit.

Maybe the Clintons really are just ordinary grifters, con artists who enjoy the thrill of pulling off the scam. Maybe it’s not even about the money.

Then again, it’s always about the money, one way or another.

And so, as with Watergate, with Bernie Madoff and now with the Clintons, the advice to all gumshoes is the same: Follow the money. Whatever deep, dark secret they are hiding, the money will lead us to it.

The price of “paying tribute” in order to gain an audience with someone in power goes all the way back to Biblical Times, continuing to the American and French Revolutions.

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

American Politicians were never meant to be Lords, who would remain in power in perpetuity, amassing unlimited wealth by accepting “tribute” from those seeking “favors”.

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.

What Hillary Clinton tried to get away with is a prime example of why our Founders set up the System of Checks and Balances that they did when they were constructing our system of government.

Obama, the Department of Justice, and the Clintons circumvented that system with a series of maneuvers carried out between the White House, the campaign Trail, and a private jet idling on a Tarmac at an airport.

It is way past time to get to the truth of the real “collusion” that happened during Hillary’s time as Secretary of State.

And, it is way past time that she answered for it.

Will Trump Ask Ted Cruz to Be His Next Attorney General?

July 25, 2017

untitled (159).png

Is President Trump about to make a change in the position of Attorney General in his Administration?

Per the Washington Post on MSN.com

President Trump has labeled his own attorney general as “beleaguered.”

“So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?” the president tweeted from his personal Twitter account on Monday morning.

Subscribe to the Post’s Must Reads newsletter: Compelling stories you can’t afford to miss

Over the past week, Trump has been attacking Attorney General Jeff Sessions over of his decision months ago to recuse himself from the investigations into possible connections between Trump’s campaign and Russia. Sessions, a former senator from Alabama, supported Trump from the early days of his candidacy and became a trusted adviser. Ten days after the election, Trump nominated Sessions for attorney general and said in a statement that “Jeff is greatly admired by legal scholars and virtually everyone who knows him.”

In March, Sessions announced that he would recuse himself from investigations related to the 2016 presidential campaign, including those into Russian interference in the electoral process. That announcement came the day after The Washington Post reported that Sessions twice met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the campaign and did not disclose those meetings to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearing in January.

The Russia investigations have swept up Trump’s eldest son and his son-in-law, greatly angering the president, who says the charges are unfounded and part of a “witch hunt.” Trump has been privately criticizing Sessions for weeks, and he said in an interview with the New York Times last week that he would not have appointed Sessions if he had known the attorney general would recuse himself, as he considers the decision “very unfair to the president.”

The president vented to the world in a series of tweets on Monday morning, lashing out not only at Sessions but also at Democrats and the media, whom he has blamed for hyping and continuing the investigations.

 

Yesterday, what might seem like a strange suggestion for a possible replacement for Jeff Sessions was being floated around: Ted Cruz.

Now, he would not be my first suggestion. That would be Rudy Giuliani. However, Giuliani let it be known that he would only except the Secretary of State Position in the Trump Administration, if asked.

On April 13, 2016, the following post appeared on legalinsurrection.com

Noted liberal Harvard Law School professor (retired) Alan Dershowitz was on the Kelly File last night, and repeated what he has said before via News Max):

“He came into my class, literally his first day in law school with his right had up – not his left hand, his right hand,” Dershowitz said Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File.”

Cruz challenged his professor on everything, which made his job easier, Dershowitz said.

“I was against the death penalty, he’s in favor. I was in favor of the exclusionary rule, he’s against it,” he said. “And he made such brilliant arguments that I never had to play the devil’s advocate.”

Cruz “was one of the best students I ever had,” Dershowitz said.

Many of his liberal friends criticize him for praising the firebrand conservative, Dershowitz said, but he argues, “I have to tell the truth about my students, even if I disagree with their views – even if I’m not gonna vote for him. I’m not going to change history and pretend that this brilliant student was anything else.”

High praise from a man who knows more about the law than 99% of the practicing attorneys in our nation’s courts today.

Back in September of 2013, right before the disaster known as Obamacare was about to cost Americans their Doctors and Savings Accounts, Cruz held a filibuster on the Senate Floor against it.

His spirited defense of Americans’ right to decide their own health care, reminded me of the indefatigable Jefferson Smith, in Capra’s classic “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”. Smith (the late, great Jimmy Stewart) says the following as he’s delivering his filibuster:

Just get up off the ground, that’s all I ask. Get up there with that lady that’s up on top of this Capitol dome, that lady that stands for liberty. Take a look at this country through her eyes if you really want to see something. And you won’t just see scenery; you’ll see the whole parade of what Man’s carved out for himself, after centuries of fighting. Fighting for something better than just jungle law, fighting so’s he can stand on his own two feet, free and decent, like he was created, no matter what his race, color, or creed. That’s what you’d see. There’s no place out there for graft, or greed, or lies, or compromise with human liberties.

When you get down to it, what Senator Ted Cruz was speaking about was LIBERTY.

Our American Freedom has been endowed by OUR CREATOR. Obamacare was simply a step toward a totalitarian regime taking it away.

If Cruz can bring that same passion to the job of Attorney General and the task of going after the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, and the corrupt crime spree which occurred while she held the position of Secretary of State in the Obama Administration, it should be something that will be talked about for decades to come.

I realize that political ambition and the heat of the battle tarnished him a bit during the Republican Primaries, but I believe that, if called upon, Ted Cruz would make a solid and formidable Attorney General.

Until He Comes,
