Theatrical Enigma: impeachment goes public

This impeachment is an exercise in performance art. It is theater of the absurd: with all the drama, casting, innuendo, stage signals, deception and illusions of reality.

Actually, I only wish it was a satire and then it would be a spectacular performance. You have the king’s white-robed judge ruling all ceremonies, functioning to dictate over and silence any mitigating evidence or questions.

There is no patience for truth and context but only the dramatic effects. The whistleblower who started it all shall not be discussed, contrary to the opening scene of outrage. He shall never be named.

We shall not speak of the origination of the script where it all began. The plot is a mystery, but do play along as lead characters develop endless possibilities out of thin air, on a moment’s notice. Pay no attention to leading questions meant to deceive the audience.

But the real irony, which becomes clear midway, is that by Act II you the audience are the real victims with no way out. Meanwhile, all along, other narratives are being developed behind the curtain out of sight of the defenseless audience — who only want it to end.

The “I” word that never could be mentioned under the last administration is at the center in every conversation about this one. However, the audience itself is the culprit, victim, villain and the number one target in the plot who must be dealt with.

Restorative Injustice

In keeping with the question theme lately, I’ll toss another one out there.

When did US policy become protecting corruption and the corrupt?

I could probably write a whole paper on that one, but it is self-evident.
Think about that one the next time you hear of “restorative justice.”

Along with this asinine jackknife of justice, when before in history has impeachment actually been the “cover up,” instead of the consequence for corruption?

Hey hey, ho ho…….

List Of Lies

Remember the days when Democrats ran in the midterm elections? They claimed they had a legit agenda. They claimed it was not all about Trump.

So many of the Democrats dismissed themselves from partisan politics. They just wanted to work for the people and get things done. So they said.

McCaskill said I’m not one of those crazy Democrats. Guess what? Call her MSNBC crazy just like the rest of the triggered Dem freaks.

They were not running on an impeachment agenda, they said. Guess what? It’s their only agenda. They did not want open borders. Guess what? That’s exactly what they want.

Remember these old lines in their greatest hits:

We don’t want socialism
We don’t want to take your guns
We don’t want to raise taxes on working families
We don’t want late term or partial birth abortions.
We don’t want to force government to pay for abortions.
We don’t want to destroy the economy.
We don’t want to raise taxes on working people.
We don’t want to eliminate jobs.
We don’t want to hurt the middle class.
We don’t want to eliminate fossil fuels.
We are not socialists.
We don’t want open borders.
We don’t want single-payer. we only want to fix Obamacare.
We don’t want to cut the military.
We believe in the rule of law.
We are not trying to do a coup.
We are defending democracy
We just want to work together.
We are not running on impeachment.
We don’t want to shut down government.
Democrats don’t want to eliminate private insurance.
There is no Deep State conspiracy against Trump.
We don’t support violence.
We will call out any hateful rhetoric, no matter which side.
We accept the results of elections.

Let’s just call it like it is, virtually everything they tell us is a lie. Dems supprt:

Open borders
Impeaching Trump
Medicare for All
Eliminating private insurance
Giving free healthcare to illegal aliens
Free College for illegals
Welfare for illegals
Socialism
Abolishing ICE
Sanctuary cities.
Lawlessness
Supporting Crime
Late term and partial birth abortion
Government funding of abortion
Expanding and stacking the Supreme Court
Judicial activism and judicial tyranny
No separation of powers
Destroying the economy
Eliminating private insurance
Undermining national security and the miliatary
Raising taxes
Restorative Justice (you know what that is)
Gun control
Confiscating guns
Destroying the 1st and 2nd amendments, stomping on the 5th and 14th
Abuse of power
Politicizing the DOJ and FBI
Mobocracy
Supporting domestic terrorists
Resisting democracy — or democratic results

Impeachment Irony

I’m sorry, Democrats, but you want to impeach President Trump over Ukraine. You could hardly ask for more foreign interference in elections and the politicization of government or foreign policy than that.

Yeah, that looks like Ukraine is the most important thing to voters and a reason to try to overturn an election. What they are really trying to impeach is the will of the people.

Then Democrats can’t even conduct their DNC impeachment on any honored process established over decades. Who needs to follow established procedures?

Sure, the Constitution says it right there: The president can be removed “on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors [*or foreign communication Congress finds objectionable].” — there revision complete.

At His Own Risk

Could investigating the origins of the 2016 corruption cabal, and the subsequent coup, cost President Trump the election? Could it be detrimental to his presidential health?

I don’t know but if Donald Trump were a creature of politics and a Washington player, he might have declined to investigate at the great risk to his own presidency. But that is just not the way Trump operates.

So he does want it investigated. I think we know most presidents would have repelled that notion out of fear that it could hurt them. And maybe, just maybe, they would have thought it would be a net plus for them to forego looking into it. (and a case could be made that it may be good not to have it investigated.) In other words, a personal gain.

I don’t think Trump gets enough credit for doing what is not attractive in spite of personal consequences. Now it definitely seems to be all negative and an uphill battle having his administration investigate corruption — even Biden’s corruption. In the interim it is all negative. Any positives only come in the results and we don’t know when those will be.

Yet according to the oath of office, any president would be obligated to investigate it. Remember Democrats kept claiming there were grounds to investigate Trump when there were none. Then they tried to create the justification for their witch hunt. That’s what Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation was all about — justifying itself.

Now if this investigation should somehow result in the loss of the 2020 election, it would still be worth it. Those are not chances most politicians want to take. That is why we had so many phony investigations, like Hillary’s, before that ended in nothing more than “there is no there there.” They were picture shows creating only the illusion of an investigation, even if the fix was in right from its conception.

Not getting justice was the polite way of saying but we investigated it. But none of them was ever so consequential as this seditious coup investigation. Trump is the one for it.

Catch a Wave of a Coup

From the time President Trump came into office, he was surrounded by snakes.

Comey admitted he “just sent over a couple people” to talk to Flynn. Oh “you don’t need an attorney.” He chuckled that he could never get away with it on another president

Now we see Dep. AG Rod Rosenstein did the equivalent to Trump;. After Comey;s firing, Roseenstein was in talks with Mueller. So Mueller went over to the White House as if he were interviewing for FBI Director. Actually, it was an information gathering mission to interview the president, unbeknownst to Trump. Rosenstein told Mueller the boss doesn’t know about our talks. (AG Sessions….and in effect President Trump)

What better way to try to get some information from the White House than roll in there like you are interested in the job? Speak to the president just to find out what you can. Anything you say can and will be used against you, but what the hey. Oops, forgot that.

The next day Mueller is appointed as a Special Counsel to open an investigation. Per plan. Well, the investigation was supposedly about Russia interference but seemed primarily obsessed with the person in the Oval Office.

They were out for Trump from even before he was in office. Rosenstein was another key player. And it wasn’t one or two snakes but what became clear was the snakes were all around him, everywhere. And they all had just one thing on their minds.

No nothing to see here at all people, move along. We have an impeachment to run now.

Why do we not have Brennan’s emails? I sure hope someone is looking into those.

(Thanks to Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch once again for getting them.)

Backlash of Crossfie Hurricane

I had an idea for a fiction where government used all its resources and alphabet agencies against a political candidate before an election, then continued their agenda after the candidate won the election. No wait, it isn’t fiction at all.

Okay, so if it did actually happen, then it is the biggest story out there. Everyone would want to know about it. But why would the press not be reporting on that? Oh, well maybe they are in on the same agenda and plot? That would only make it even more of a story.

Wait, if that is the case, the entire thing is also a cover up. You know, they say the cover up is always worse than the crime. So I guess that means we have a real doozy here!

To ice the cake, who could think of a better narrative than branding that candidate, now president, a mob boss in their trumped up investigation started under the code name Crossfire Hurricane? It makes sense to label their target the greatest threat while they unleash the powers of US government, and those wielding it, against an incoming candidate and then a sitting president. Why not?

What began to be clear is how this whole thing formed into lopsided competing narratives. You had all that they were saying in concert, as if choreographed, about how bad he was and sinister his motivations must be for America. Surely that narrative is the only thing that could justify all they had done against him. Because if it was not true that might turn Crossfire Hurricane into the mother avalanche of US power against an innocent man. We could never have that story come out, much less be true.

Yes, it is a gas, for all the people involved who created and rolled out this entire plot against Donald Trump. Strangely, from the beginning they had tried to conceal their real target by telling Trump he was not actually under investigation. Another bold lie to hide the obvious and meant to further their agenda against him. Sure, it’s a gas.

Now who says we don’t investigate political opponents in this country or turn the apparatus of government on them ? It’s a gas.

Ghosts, Ghouls And Government

Ghosts, Ghouls And Everything Scary

Is it Halloween yet, when all the ghosts and goblins come out to scare us and tickle our fears? No. It is starting to look and feel like it though.

Trying to keep up with news, I learned something this week that did surprise me. I am a little embarrassed not to know we had four branches in our government. They are the Legislative, Executive, Judicial and the Whistle Blower Branch. Times change.

I do not yet know exactly what this Whistle Blower Branch does but I can see it has enormous powers – granted to it, or however it gets them. It seems like it could even trump all the other branches. I assume it was created by the Legislative branch though it has taken on a sovereignty of its own.

This is a murky area, what with definitions and powers constantly changing, so I want to understand as much as I can about it. That is not easy easy when they seem to rewrite rules and law on the fly the way Congress does. Or they just make it up to suite them.

I do know one thing, expect to hear more from this branch of government in the next year, say, before the election. It seems to have a lot to say about things.

On CNN, I heard David Gergen, who is the elf-anointed expert on Nixon, say what he thought should be done with whistle blowers. He thinks they should be put in the witness protection program and when testifying, they should do so only from behind a curtain in secret closed-door session.

We must take the utmost care and responsibility to protect them. (naturally reminding me of the old mob bosses) So they need protections from the government they are supposedly blowing the whistle on? And we know how scary that government really is and the mob tactics they use. Are there a few insinuations here that seem slightly disturbing?

Well, mainstream media has been comparing the Trump administration to the Mafia a lot recently. They might be a little late to that party. I was drawing direct parallels between the mob and Obama’s administration for eight years to deaf ears. All that was considered conspiracy stuff.

But now they have an actual mob boss in the White House, according to media, and everyone seems so hyper-concerned about it. Yes, it sends chills down my spine just thinking of Trump controlling the White House. Shutter the thought. I knew it would come to this haunting place as soon as Donald Corleone was elected president. It was a given.

Now we need this Whistle Blower branch, which I was completely unaware of, more than we ever needed it, so we can find out what the mobsters are doing and rat them out. Get the goods on them.

About those protections.

So David Gergen floats the protection idea with the super-secret model. That would certainly add even more to the drama in Congress right now. You know, the Whistle Blower as the ultimate hero, able to swoop in and out to catch the dirty guys red handed to protect the public from the unscrupulous…. big bad federal government. And, again, in secrecy, to swoop back out to private life. All the while protected by G-men.

Whew hoo, the left never saw that much danger from the federal government before. But then we never had someone like Donald Corleone to fear in the White House before. (Clintons and Obama didn’t trip their trigger but Trump is the prototype of a mobster)

They found a statute from 1778 that was the first whistle blower statute. which says anyone who knows about any government malfeasance must come forward to report it. Well that would be interesting to see today.

With all the protections possible that Gergen talks about, it presents a new scenario to consider. Congress has taken this whistle blower over a presidential phone call with Ukraine to a new level. They started an impeachment process right away, defining it as a smoking gun. We are at the intersection and the Impeachment light is green.

Theatrics and Drama

Two things you can always count on from Congress are theatrics and drama, especially when the subject matter involves any other branch of government but their own. Just once, I would like to see them on truth serum, or like at an AA meeting, where they have to admit what they have done to get a fix for their power addiction, in open session to the public. Oh, that would be ripe for drama.

So with all this emphasis on the Whistle Blower – and his/her protections – it is now conceivable how a whistle blower can potentially take down a sitting president or even the government. And do it from behind the viel of a curtain, under witness protection, in a secret session. And on second-hand information too. Under oath adds legitimacy.

A whistle blower has a lot of power then. Is it responsible to give them all that power? You know, individuals, like members of congress, can operate with their own motives and agenda. But what are the people supposed to think of such an arrangement?

For years I have wondered where any whistle blowers were under Obama. We didn’t have them. Where were they under Hillary in the State Department? What about in the Justice Department Obama politicized?

Out of that severe vacuum now comes a whistle blower, apparently a CIA employee, to come out and finally must blow the whistle over a phone call Trump had to Ukraine. Seems to me there is a whole lot more going on with this Whistle Blower than a phone call. And a lot more he/she is worried about.

Have we come this far that we can have a whistle blower step in to prevent an investigation? Is that what whistle blowers are supposed to do? So by blowing the whistle they can participate in the massive Deep State cover up that has been going on for years.

Of course that means that we do have this fourth branch of government. The whistle blowers can then collaborate as well with media and congress. Can they shape our policies, government or its actions, even from outside of it, while hiding under anonymity as a Whistle Blower?

Mark Levin Smacks Down Fox’s Ed Henry

Cyclone Hillary slams CBS news cycle

Well, son of a bitch, Hillary Clinton is at it again. Right on cue. Calling Trump a “corrupt tornado,” now that’s rich. (even for Hillary) But everything is about her.

From CNN in Washington

In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning host Jane Pauley that was released on Thursday, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee gave her thoughts on the race between her and Trump as well as the 2020 election.

“Well, I hope not, and I don’t think so — because the objective is to field whoever is the strongest candidate to defeat Donald Trump,” Clinton said when asked if she thought it would be harder for a woman to be elected President. “Because Donald Trump right now poses a direct threat, a clear and present danger to the institutions of our government, to the rule of law, to our standing in the world.”

“I believe that, look there were many funny things that happened in my election that will not happen again. And I’m hoping that both the public and press understand the way Trump plays the game,” Clinton said.

When asked if she gets upset that Trump continues to say she should be “locked up,” a notion that is often chanted at his rallies, Clinton said, “No, it doesn’t kill me because he knows he’s an illegitimate President.

“You know, Jane, it was like applying for a job and getting 66 million letters of recommendation and losing to a corrupt human tornado,” Clinton said. “And so I know that he knows, that this wasn’t on the level. I don’t know that we’ll ever know what happened.

 

“My election” …. excuse me, Hillary?

Now it was an illegitimate election. Hillary did not succeed in destroying our electoral system, so it was illegitimate. Fun fact!

For someone who claimed to write the authoritative source on “what happened” in 2016, now says we will never know. Yet she continues to try to tell us. What a confused and confounded woman. Will she do and say anything to get some airtime?

Biden’s Night Out

Looks like Biden was going out for the prom. So he got himself all spiffed up, after a nude swim in front of secret service, shined up the Benz, then combed his plugs for a take off.

But he forgot to check the air in the tires, which all seem to have slow leaks. He’s about to have a very bad night even before getting to the florist.

It’s not looking good for ol’ Joe, and the clock is ticking. Plus Cinderella has strict orders.

He’s going to have to fake it to make it now. The sendoff wasn’t so golden after all.

PJ Media — By Tyler O’Neil | March 2018

In 2013 and 2014, China embarked on an aggressive air and island campaign to dominate the South China Sea, much to the dismay of Japan and other countries in the region. When Vice President Joe Biden visited the country in 2013, he emphasized trade between the U.S. and China and did not focus on the South China Sea. Secretary of State John Kerry did the same in 2014.

Meanwhile, Biden’s son Hunter and Kerry’s stepson Chris Heinz carried out massive business deals with Chinese officials and the state-owned Bank of China. Worse, Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz even invested in a Chinese nuclear company under FBI investigation.

“During a critical eighteen-month period of diplomatic negotiations between Washington and Beijing, the Biden and Kerry families and friends pocketed major cash from companies connected to the Chinese government,” Peter Schweizer writes in his new book “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.”

Schweizer’s book delves into the ways in which “American Princelings” profit at home and abroad from the economic and diplomatic policies of high-ranking U.S. officials. With former Vice President Biden rumored to be considering a 2020 presidential run, the scandals surrounding how his diplomatic efforts enriched his son take on renewed importance. His role in abetting China’s aggression for family gain seems particularly damning.

When Biden became the vice president in 2009, his son Hunter Biden “became a social fixture in Washington,” Schweizer explains. In the summer of 2009, the VP’s son joined forces with Chris Heinz, a wealthy heir to the late Senator John Heinz, whose wife Teresa married Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.). The two formed Rosemont Capital, an alternative investment firm “positioned to strike profitable deals overseas with foreign governments and officials with whom the U.S. government was negotiating.”

Devon Archer, Chris Heinz’s roommate at Yale and star fundraiser for John Kerry’s 2004 presidential run, joined the American Princelings at Rosemont. Federal agents would later arrest Archer in May 2016 for defrauding a Native American tribe in an effort to enrich a branch of Rosemont Capital, Rosemont Seneca Bohai.

The American Princelings set up Rosemont Capital as an alternative investment fund of the Heinz Family Office, and attached several branches to it, including Rosemont Seneca Partners and Rosemont Realty.

When Vice President Biden went to China in December 2013 amid the South China Sea aggression, his son Hunter went with him. Hunter Biden was negotiating a major deal between Rosemont Seneca and the state-owned Bank of China. As the vice president discussed China’s trade with the United States, his son was putting these economic ties into practice, and the U.S. effectively caved in the conflict over the South China Sea.

Ten days after the Bidens visited China, the Bank of China — which is embedded in a complex network involving state ministries, security forces, and the Communist Party, and which provides capital for China’s economic statecraft — created an investment fund with Rosemont Seneca called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR). “In short, the Chinese government was literally funding a business that it co-owned along with the sons of two of America’s most powerful decision makers,” Schweizer explains.

Rosemont Seneca received a benefit no other Western firm had in China — “a private equity cross-border investment fund formed in the Chinese government’s Shanghai Free-Trade Zone.” With this privilege, Rosemont Seneca could take Chinese government funds and invest them in China or outside the country, even in the U.S. …../

So John Kerry appears to have some questions to answer, too. Funny how the privileged princelings sucked up the cash like vacuums.

Seems like Biden is about to endure some severe vetting. Poor guy never was exposed to it in all those years before; it wasn’t in the program. You know that only happens to the other guys. While he is supposed to be the big player on the team who always gets the girl in the end and everything else.

Joe, Joe, they got a saying where I come from: “you dance all night, someone has to pay the fiddler.” But it’s going to take more than a lot of cash this time, Joe. You might be feeling a headache coming on about now, Joe. And Cinderella doesn’t look like she’s going to make her curfew. What a drag.

In retrospect, it sure looks funny seeing Biden pleading for all that campaign cash now while the princelings lined their pockets real good. It’s a tough ask… and a tough sell.

Rights Under Seige

I get miffed in this gun control fever, even by some 2nd amendment supporters. I suppose it is an insult. Attaching the words common sense to it means nothing to me.

This debate – as they call it – rages on over gun control. But it will never end with the left; and there are no limits.

To be perfectly honest, I’m getting real tired of people or government trying to redefine what our rights are. That is the very heart of the problem.

It cannot be up to the current crop of politicos in office, or the climate in Washington, even who is president, to determine what our rights are.

If it is up to the current political climate, then at one time our rights will be defined one way and under different leadership they will be defined another way. It will go from pandering to our rights to debating how much restrictions or controls they can excerpt over them. I don’t want to live in a country like that. I don’t need a politician sucking up to me about preserving my rights. Or how only he/she will protect my rights.

We hold elections to determine who represents us, not as a referendum on our rights. Those are inalienable rights, so why are some people trying to make them conditional?

I just want them protected, as an obligation of the office they hold. It is not an arbitrary duty but some people make it one. I am not transferring authority over my rights.

On the other hand, I don’t want an endless diatribe on how much you are going to restrict or control my rights — telling us we need a national discussion on my rights. Why should their chief objective be to control, redefine and reinterpret our God-given unalienable rights? I’m sorry, it is beyond insulting and offensive. Don’t do me any favors.

I also don’t want our rights up to redefinition and reinterpretation every couple years. That is usurping them, not preserving and protecting them. It cannot be up to a few people, some politicians, or even a large group like the NRA to solely defend the 2nd amendment. It is ultimately up to the people.

My unalienable rights are not a bargaining chip for elected officials and fundraiser to line their campaign coffers. They swear an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, not to nullify it. It is a Bill of Rights, not a bill of suggestions.

Media’s Sellout, Tale of the Toll

From a secluded and undisclosed location, I have been thinking up wacky things to write. Not actually but play along. This time I have found yet another provocative idea.

It seems the outrageous and provocative get all the press’s attention these days. Well, except on the right, where we get banned or marginalized for saying what sounds crazy to media’s ears. In that strain, this must offend them and presses their ridicule buttons.

So in this episode of crazy talk with your inflammatory host, this one fits with the other stranger than fiction stuff I’ve thought up for years. “Conspiracies” are so yesterday.

But it starts with the quaint story of Obama we all know. Now that he has finally been out of office for a few years, where is the little scum merchant and what has he been up to? Oh, he’s hobnobbing with the rich and powerful. He was sailing in paradise, selling faux books, still giving occasional lectures that “this is not who we are” and purchasing his own multi-million dollar abode on the Martha’s Vineyard coast. The world is his oyster.

Between all that, I’m sure he has time to follow the news. Remember he always counted on it to tell him what he did not know when in office. “I just found out in the press, like you,” were code words. Living the high life, it turns out, is not the only thing he dabbles in.

In my scenario, Obama managed to do what no other president has done or maybe no other single person. (yes, you can argue whether he really is a single human being or a poster boy for the global power conglomerate) He managed this accomplishment, or solidified it, before leaving office. Now he is in the catbird seat enjoying the fruits.

Obama now controls the media. That is for all practical purposes and matters of official capacity. He controls the whole cabal of the national press. He cannot continue on without them and they cannot operate without him attached to the masthead. How is this you might ask? It’s really very simple. They gave up their loyalty and freedom of the press long ago. Being out of office means nothing… yet it means everything at the same time.

He can finally assert his stealthy but direct control in the way he couldn’t before. It doesn’t involve daily phone calls or meetings with boards, though it easily could. He doesn’t have to. That may have been a subtle seduction at first but progressed over time.

For all intents and purposes he owns the media cabal. They sold themselves to Obama dirt cheap, he only now has realized the totality of that control. He is hardly what you’d expect from any other former president. I do like saying former but that means very little. With the control of the press apparatus, he does not have to be the president anymore. It makes no difference. He is the guy at the top and what he says goes. No he doesn’t have to busy himself in daily personnel decisions. All that mundane stuff is just done in his honor.

And the American press know it whether they care to admit it or not. They are fine with this incestuous relationship but it is a done deal. They are at his beckon call if he avails himself of it or not. There is no question it operates for him exclusively. Sure, that is where the global control comes in you might say, as it does with his ideology. Though he is the king of the national press and media operation.

For the press cabal, this is for keeps. They are there explicitly to defend him and his legacy. They are there to keep history being written a certain way, to his benefit. They are there to guarantee it just like there was an insurance poliy in the event Trump was elected. Actually, it is all part of the same cabal. It operates to protect Obama. You could not even hope for a better situation than that.

If you want proof of this relationship and what it means in events, you only have to look at the aftermath coverage of the Mueller Report and the Report on Comey last week. Rabid press coverage validates this incestuous pattern. They will do anything to protect Obama, whatever it takes or costs. Medias’ fate is wrapped with Obama’s legacy and vice versa.

At first they seemed like a cute couple in puppy love, and then evolved into the evil power duo which functions as one criminal enterprise. Slaves to agenda, they could not function apart from each other. Someone has to to say what is obviously the rotten reality.

Justice Denied

The IG Report on Comey came out. What did we learn? Not much that we didn’t know. It only chronicled most of what was already reported. And DOJ declines to prosecute.

It determined that Comey ‘violated department and FBI policies’.

How are we in a different position than we were before? Comey struts around and we see that nothing has changed. Any wonder people are disgusted?

There are at least several ways for Comey to spin this, while the public gets the middle finger. At least this time it is on AG Barr but what difference does even he make?

So we have eighty pages along with a DOJ statement that it will do nothing about it. Once again, do we even have a justice system in America? The answer is not for some people.

I think the worst part will be Comey’s gloating.

I read between the lines that the IG did what he had to do to assuage the questions. Case dismissed, I guess. The lesson is if you are in the right position, you can do what he did and have no accountability for it. The only speck of justice was him getting fired, But in return for that we got the ballyhooed Mueller Report. Is that a fair trade, is that justice?

Sure this whole thing may dog Comey into the future but aside from that we ended up with a goose egg. Sounds and looks just like Hillary Clinton’s ordeal. So what does violated department and FBI policies really mean? Not much!

When Drama Meets Trauma

Look out; today I am going to tell you something that will shock your conscience. In fact, you might never look at the issue the same way again. This will change your thinking about it. I promise you, the things I will reveal will alter the national discussion about the issue. All carefully sourced, of course. (File that next to all the other bunk.)

Mark this date on your calendar. (as you would any other date)

How many times have you heard things like this? It’s called dramatic flare and I have about as much of it as anyone. It is sensationalism. News and media often use it. Scratch that, they are extreme addicts of it. That sets us up for some drama karma.

I sometimes wonder if they are sensationalizing that much, then what is the purpose? I mean whether the story is sensational or not is the real point. Not whether one can breathe some sensational effect into it. (that is not the story) So I am caught in a quandary over all the need to sensationalize. Isn’t there enough of it out there already?

Like when Sean Hannity comes on every weeknight telling us “my sources are telling me the stuff that is coming will shock the conscience of the nation.” He says it at least every other night. “If reports are true, and I believe they are.”

Then after that, nothing. There is no proverbial explosion of “news” too hot to handle. No stunning revelations that will mark this place in time to be remembered forever. Nope, it’s dullsville afterward. Of course the leading question is ‘what does he know, what is this big news?’ It starts a web of questions: “Are we really going to find out everything that happened this time?” “Are people finally going to jail over this corruption.”… “Is this when accountability finally starts, for real this time?’

Then he or any of the other news pushers tell you to “stay tuned.” In other words, just continue to sit on the edge of your seats wringing your hands, waiting. Even as they are speaking, stay glued to your seat and do not change the channel. “We’ll tell you when we come back…” Uh huh, day after day.

I once compared this idiom of news coverage as the equivalent of marching people up to the rooftop and telling them “now just wait, we’ll come back for you. We are going to give you the news you’ve been hoping for. Just hang on and….wait!” How far off is that?

And when they don’t return, the story doesn’t come, or the news they hope for doesn’t arrive, then what? Well “just continue to wait.” It only works so long.

Notice what happened to Rachael Maddow, her ratings went into the toilet. It was after 2 and half years of fomenting promises that this will happen and that will happen. It didn’t… and now she isn’t — the top news prognosticator even of the left.

How many times have we heard all these things? Benghazi ring a bell? It proves the rule not the exemption. Do they think we’ve all been hypnotized? (cue soundtrack)

Face it we are in perpetual wait mode for all of it. When media does not deliver, it does not bode well. That’s all I’m saying. The last thing you want to think is that a person is only doing it for their own self-promotion. But these days it’s the first thing you must think about. That happens all the time.

Though the people just want honest information. They want the story and nothing but the story. And we get anything but the story. We get hype or “irrational exuberance.”

A word about my anonymity.

Some people may wonder why the anonymity? I can tell you what it is not. I am not a top Hollywood celeb hiding behind anonymity to protect my conservative views because I will be blacklisted if it were known. I am not an embedded insider informant, veiled in a cloak of anonymity. I am not a person who’s life would be wrecked if my identity were exposed.

No to all of that, however, I do protect my identity on the Internet from trolls or people who attack the messenger rather than the message. People who only want to use your identity as a weapon against you.

We’ve now seen what the left is really capable of. They’ll stop and nothing when it comes to politics. Why do some people refuse to engage in politics? It’s not hard to understand. The nature of the radical politics of weaponizing everything today is very profound and real. There are no limits for the Left. While on this side, we’re only a happy coalition of one.

Waiting causes other symptoms. They are all just chasing the news. They are not running down the story, they are chasing the news cycle. And Trump proved this better than anyone ever did. Sometimes I think he wants to send them on a wild journey. They will literally spend hours discussing what he says. Heck, Democrats want to impeach him for his words. They’d like to impeach him for his thoughts, too, but that is even more difficult. They’re working on it.

So what is it we all do while we just wait? Tap our fingers? We have lives, we do our thing. The fact that a bombshell hasn’t dropped is good cause or reason to think one is not in the offing anytime soon. Until then, we wait like trained seals in a circus. (sorry, they don’t have circuses anymore. We are the circus.) If we follow their breadcrumbs that is.

Like many people, sure, I’m tired of the waiting. “It’s coming.” I’ll tell you what I am not expecting and what is likely not coming — even if I am hoping. I don’t expect justice to take them all down like dominos in a couple of months. I’d say the odds on that are greater than hitting the lottery. As some say, “it just is not going to happen… or any time soon.”

A personal note:

Sometimes if I am writing a special piece, not always, I might be listening to music or a song. I’m not claiming it has any direct influence on content but it helps inspire me. For instance in writing this I was listening to “It keeps you running” by Michael McDonald and the Doobie Brothers. Oh that voice. Now you decide if it had any effect, or not?

But that isn’t the purpose of the music. It is just a tool like an aid. It doesn’t contribute directly to content. But it can help you get there, to that space.

See media uses the dramatic and sensational as a tool. it is supposed to get you there. But it’s not the subject. When it becomes the entire self-propelled point, then it’s the problem not a vehicle.

(For future reference: don’t worry, I will let you know when I’m listening to Tchaikovsky – 1812 Overture with cannons. But I think you’ll know anyway.)

And when the media’s Drama Karma kicks in, I think we’ll know it.

Memorable Lines

“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” Those were the days, weren’t they?

“Not Even A Smidgen Of Corruption” in the IRS targeting operation.

No such thing as “rigged elections” in the US. Don’t worry about that.

Or in Obama’s own words: [skip to 2:24 mark]

Keep in mind Obama gave that Rose Garden Denial in mid October, 2016. At which time the FBI, Steele and Fusion GPS had already been hard at work, under the guise of counterintelligence investigation, meddling up to their necks in the election.

At that point they were well into creating their insurance policy. And where National Security Adviser Susan Rice handled unmasking at Obama’s White House.

Monitoring had already been issued on Trump campaign associates, including Flynn and Manafort, Page, Papadopoulos. Page alone had 4 FISA warrants prying into him. Steele was already working on his dossier — paid for by Hillary’s campaign — then hand delivered back to the FBI later, on December, 9. by McCain.

Yes, their “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation was fully under way as Obama gave that sharp, deceptively smirky denial in the Rose Garden. As if no one knew or would know what was going on in the bowels of Obama’s administration. He had to know it all.

Only months before, Hillary had been cleared in Servergate by James Comey. After which those resources immediately shifted to investigate the Trump campaign.

In any event, the no-scandal Obama struck again. But of course now Democrats don’t mind calling it a rigged election. The denial runs deep.

“Betraying those basic American traditions?”…. just soak that in.

Baltimore, Elijah Cummings vs Trump

Let me get this straight, the city leaders of Baltimore have come together to rally (support) against President Trump’s criticism. So the leaders cannot find a way to fix Baltimore’s problems and conditions but instead focus on the real enemy, Trump?

But why is Trump the enemy and problem here? And the problems have nothing to do with race, unless you are saying only white people or Trump supporters care about the problems in Baltimore. But that is a horrible thing to say. And that would be insulting and offensive to say blacks or others don’t see or care about the problems with Baltimore.

So let’s unite to defend Baltimore from the president’s tweets. Those big bad Tweets. I don’t know exactly what “we’re going to continue to push forward” means. Maybe they should worry more about Baltimore than Trump.

But the Baltimore Sun is almost as bad. It declared itself the defense for Elijah Cummings. In one editorial deluge, clearly to defend Cummings, they ended the deflection and defense by choosing the rats: “Better to have some vermin living your neighborhood than to be one.” So beside actually calling Trump a rat/rodent, they make a deliberate decision to choose rodents in Baltimore.

Also in the dripping editorial venom, they spun the blame for problems in their city on Trump. Yet Elijah lives in and represents the hood. I guess that makes him immune to responsibility — in the standard Baltimoronic way.

Here is a partial quote:

“Finally, while we would not sink to name-calling in the Trumpian manner — or ruefully point out that he failed to spell the congressman’s name correctly (it’s Cummings, not Cumming) — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one.”

They will not sink to name-calling but then call Trump a rodent. Now they can rally against Trump as the enemy. Meanwhile, President Trump has channeled “$16 billion in 2018 alone to Elijah Cummings’ district in federal grants.” But then call him a rat. That works!

Sorry, they don’t get to blame Trump for the problems in Baltimore too. Though Cummings and his fellow Dems do nothing to fix the crisis on the border. But organize a rally against Trump, they can do that.

A Note To Dems’ Script Writers

One thing stuck in my craw for the duration of the Washingtonian malfeasance is a simple phrase all too common now. Widely and wildly misused. It is more a defense and deflection of the Swamp than an indictment of it.

That phrase is some form of: “we should not criminalize politics” or our political process. Alan Dershowitz popularized it but many used it. It’s now an institutional euphemism.

The original intended beneficiary of the phrase was foremost to be Hillary Clinton. But it was applied in defending Obama too. It may now legitimately be used defending Trump. Though those three instances are apples and oranges. True, they try to criminalize everything Trump does. It has been normalized. Let’s deal with Hillary and Obama.

I resent something called what it is not. In Hillary’s case, it is as a complete misdescription of events. Hillary started her job as Secretary of State in 2009, after lying about creating a wall between the Foundation with her name on it. That conflict was to be expunged, but never was. She knew it, Bill knew it, her top advisors knew it. All were aware how she would use the job as Sec of State. That was the whole point in her taking the job.

She engaged in criminal conduct from the onset.

The crux is even deeper. She began by setting up an illegal server from the start. She never used a State email. Her advisors knew it. She did it to circumvent FOIA and public accountability. The whole purpose by design was to obstruct justice. That was her goal.

The act came first, meaning her job duties were subordinate to political considerations. However, her actions were criminal from the beginning. She was not compliant with the law from the git-go.

Now we are lectured that we the people should not criminalize our political process. Really?

State was politicized too, not just by her. Obama deliberately did not install an Inspector General at State for Hillary. It only had an existing, “acting” temporary (placeholder) office. Politicized and weaponized as was nearly every other department, like Justice.

We now know that in the 2016 campaign, Hillary was taking money from foreign sources. We also know what she was doing with Russians, Perkins Coie, Fusion GPS, Crowd Strike, Ukrainians, an agent of a foreign government, creating a dossier, pedaling it to our intelligence community and co-opting our executive branch. Using existing politicization and further weaponizing intelligence, collaborating with Obama and his administration.

Does all that sound like legitimate, legal campaign conduct — which is being criminalized?

So the point is Hillary and Obama’s criminal deeds criminalized our political process. But we are criminalizing politics by wanting accountability? Not to forget how they weaponized government against the people, interfered with elections and later staged a coup.

But the real source of the whole problem was that Trump beat Hillary in her dirty, illegal game — politics. He was also running against an abuse of power and obstruction of justice. They are now trying to criminalize the very politics that beat them.

Don’t cry to me about people criminalizing routine political conduct and election process. None of Democrats’ was routine. People who stage coups have no credibility.

Sort of like we all thought

You don’t say? Exactly what we said, knew and saw. File it under old news, as it was exposed in 2016. But the intent has no expiration date. Remember when…

LEAKED: Obama Team Kept List of Muslims For Top Jobs, Excluded Non-Muslims

Justin Caruso | 10/24/2016 | The Daily Caller

The newest batch of John Podesta’s hacked emails released by Wikileaks shows Obama’s transition team kept lists of Muslim and Asian candidates for jobs in the administration.

According to an email chain from 2008, John Podesta received lists of exclusively Muslims and Asians to be considered for jobs in the Obama administration. The email chain revealed that in this process, Middle Eastern Christians were purposefully excluded, or set aside in a separate list, with an aide writing,

In the candidates for top jobs, I excluded those with some Arab American background but who are not Muslim (e.g., George Mitchell). Many Lebanese Americans, for example, are Christian. In the last list (of outside boards/commissions), most who are listed appear to be Muslim American, except that a handful (where noted) may be Arab American but of uncertain religion (esp. Christian).

Also notable, there was concern that some of the Muslims suggested would not survive media scrutiny, with one aide writing, “High-profile Muslim Americans tend to be the subject of a fair amount of blogger criticism, and so the individuals on this list would need to be ESPECIALLY carefully vetted.”

She continues, “I suspect some of the people I list would not survive such a vet — but I do personally know, at least in part, virtually all of the candidates in the 1st two categories (but I know very few of those listed for outside boards/commissions).”

Within the lists themselves, candidates were further broken down, with every candidate labeled by their nationality and sometimes race.

This follows a pattern of the Obama Administration using race and religion to determine hiring, with other leaked emails showing potential political appointees being labeled with an F for female, B for black, H for Hispanic, and M for Muslim.

Another Wikileaks release showed the Obama transition team keeping extensive lists of non-white candidates for administration posts.

So any surprise there? Only that they were so coordinated about doing it. Can anyone say litmus test? In other words, Article VI, no religious test. In this case, it was completely religious. Discrimination was the process. The left had no problem with that.

But then the results were obvious to everyone, or it should have been.

It only makes me wonder, will someone someday have the gonads to write the book on what Obama did flagrantly from the beginning to end? I kind of doubt it but like to hope so. It was as bad as we thought and then even worse. Yet it needs to be memorialized.

Any questions? All right then!
