Politicization A Central Threat

How the intel community was turned into a political weapon against President Trump

By Scott Uehlinger, opinion contributor – 04/05/17 | The Hill

The U.S. intelligence community is in the midst of a severe crisis. It has been used, or perhaps allowed itself to be used, as a tool of political destruction, against some of the same U.S. citizens it was created to protect.

What I am talking about is the continuing “Wiretapgate” debacle. We are seeing the widespread abuse of intelligence by an incumbent administration to target political opposition. Long a technique in the developing world — a tactic I often witnessed as a CIA station chief working abroad — the Third World has come to roost in the United States. It is a tragedy of the first order.

The danger of politicization is widely accepted throughout the intelligence community as the greatest hazard, in theory, to the intelligence profession. If an intel service cannot be accepted as an unbiased arbiter, it loses the trust of its people, and risks becoming irrelevant and unheeded. History is littered with intel failures; one need only look to the invasion of Iraq to see how politicization can lead to costly failure and a “trust gap” that can take years to bridge and resolve.

Stunning to be compared to a third-world country, but accurate to Obama’s legacy.

Little people’s info doesn’t matter

This is to all the people who have had their personal information hacked, stolen, pilfered or used by foreign state hackers. My sympathies to you. (including anyone who worked for the federal government.) You’ve been used and abused in more than one way.

Now we know the real truth. Your privacy, security and personal information mean nothing to Obama’s administration or even Congress. Let’s be honest, you are not Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, or the DNC. Your shit doesn’t matter — only theirs does.

They proved this with the hacking narrative they and the media have elevated to the top national security issue. Obama called for an investigation of Russia on the election.

When did they call for an investigation, let alone consequences, for those who did the hacking of all that government and personal information? Where is that national debate and outrage? Where is all the media coverage about it? Where are the demands to do something? They didn’t want to acknowledge the story or comment on it when the hacks happened. Where is the CIA and FBI reports, and 17 intelligence agencies? — MIA

From the bowels of media coverage

First, the story is the beating and treatment of the white teenager by 4 black Chicago Trump-haters. Everyone probably heard the story by now. Exhibit A for disgusting.

They discuss the crime on CNN and what happens? All hell breaks loose? No. Someone labels it an evil act but no, again, Don Lemon has to take issue with that term. Hate crime? No, they don’t like that term either.

Tied up, tortured and beaten…. just some bad rearing. Really?

Don Lemon on horrific Chicago torture: ‘I don’t think it’s evil.’ You’ll love his alternate theory.

The Blaze

In the wake of the horrific torture of a white man with special needs by four black suspects — which was live-streamed on Facebook — a panelist on Don Lemon’s CNN show called the act “evil.”

“You just try to wrap your head around evil,” Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller told Lemon on Wednesday night. “That’s what this is. It’s evil. It’s brutality. It’s man’s inhumanity to man.”

But Lemon took issue with that assessment.

“I don’t think it’s evil. I don’t think it’s evil,” Lemon responded. “I think these are young people, and I think they have bad home training.”

The host continued:

And I say, “Who’s raising these young people?” I have no idea who’s raising these young people, because no one I know on earth who is 17 years old or 70 years old would ever think of treating another person like that. It is inhumane. And you wonder, at 18 years old, where’s your parent? Where’s your guardian?

http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/01/05/don-lemon-on-horrific-chicago-torture-i-dont-think-its-evil-youll-love-his-alternate-theory/

Don Lemon takes the award for journalism bias. He’s trying to keep his stellar record going. “Where’s your guardian?” They are 18 yr-olds and older. Where’s yours, Don?

That was not even the whole problem on CNN. He had another guest besides Lewis. A black woman who insisted this should not be considered a hate crime, as if we don’t know and can’t hear for ourselves what they did. She argued with Lewis.

She went on to state that it is different for black people, who suffered a long history of abuse etc in America. She complained it is wrong to overuse that term and charge.  Well, maybe there is another award for her. Does being black excuse what they did? Does it disqualify them from being charged with a hate crime? Lewis called it evil.

Then Lemon chimed in with the “I don’t think it is evil” line. The same people who see “structural racism” everywhere, and an inherent evil in it, cannot see or at least define evil even when watching it take place on a video, which was streamed live.

But they just can’t get there to this hate crime and evil thing.

Jarrett continues the Scandal-Free lie

From the you’ve got to be kidding section of fake news.

Valerie Jarrett: Obama’s White House Has Been Scandal-Free

Breitbart via NYP

The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself.

Jarrett said of both the Obamas, “I think that they behave as the people who they are. What you see in public is the same thing I see in private. Do they feel responsibility because they’re historic figures? Yes, they do. But I don’t think it has made them be different than who they are. The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself. That is not because he is being someone other that who he is. That’s who he is. That is who they are. And that is what really resonates with the American people.”

http://www.breitbart.com/video/2017/01/02/valerie-jarrett-obamas-white-house-has-been-scandal-free/

What really resonates with the American people:

The manure is really getting deep. The king of scandal, next to the Clintons, has not a modicum o of honesty. The fruits of the Obamas don’t lie — but they sure do. From Benghazi to the “not a smidgen of corruption” IRS, to his DOJ scandals. Legacy of lies.

Obama has politicized every department, including intelligence. It would be impossible to even get a clear audit on it all, since his administration was so corrupted. If these were not scandals, then why did they spend so much time trying to blame Republicans for it?

They elevated “racism” to their excuse de jure for everything.

What was not a scandal in his administration starting with the stimulus and his signature Obamacare (lying) bill, to EPA and election meddling around the world? He went MIA on the second 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi. He promised Russia more “flexibility after my last election.” Putin collected. Even worse, Obama was never held accountable for any of his scandals. (that’s what she should have said, never accountable.)

shove-it-tour

America loves a good fiction story.

The Swamp, Hillary, Creatures, Corruption, Oh My

Obama hits the trail for Hillary. A lot has happened in 8 years and a lot hasn’t happened. The campaign difference between then and now is stark and Obama is caught in his hypocrisy. “Come on, man!”… as Obama repeats in his mocking way.

How can Hillary have been so wrong in 08 be so right for president today? Come on, man. So after setting up a server to avoid the public, those pesky citizens, and exploiting the office in a pay to play scheme never before seen, Hillary is suddenly ready for the White House. In fact, Obama says she is the most qualified person ever. So he was wrong then, and that was before her most recent scandals: servergate, pay to play and Benghazi.

Draining the Swamp is a great metaphor for Washington. Hillary is its ultimate poster child. Her sole identity is the Queen of the Swamp and the greatest single creature in it. Hillary is the metaphor for the Swamp metaphor. According to their rules for radicals, the Aliskyites’ goal is to personalize the issue. And Hillary Clinton personalizes the Swamp perfectly. She is the Swamp creature. Hillary is the bin Laden of the Swamp.

Obama said premiums are only going up for a handful of people who are not subsidized by government, so apparently it is a non-problem. Right, who cares about people that are not subsidized? I guess that was never a concern for Obamacare. Gruber admitted that they lied to get it passed. What happened was a lot of people wrongly believed that Obamacare would not affect them or their own plans. So all Obama had to do was fool deceive enough people that it would not affect them. Who cared about the truth volcano to follow?

Forget about all the real national security threats, the greatest national threat besides Obama is now Hillary Clinton. We cannot Drain the Swamp if we don’t keep Hillary out of the White House.

Yet Obama says Hillary Clinton is just picture perfect for the job, and she’ll focus on protecting kids and families. That is really not just a little green algae in the water.

Come on, man.

What Difference At This Point Does It Make? — Plenty and she’s not done

Below are two informative videos. First one is the abbreviated biography background on Huma Abedin. The bottom one is like a dossier of Hillary’s scandalous record: from cattle futures to her Senate, to her term as Secretary of State. Scandal should be the Queen of Corruption’s middle name. Consider the first only a primer, and a partner in crime.

Any Senate campaign that is kicked off by Peter Paul and Hsu is probably not going in the right direction. From there it only got worse. She was brought in front of the ethics committee on various things. She then took her national bid for president in 2008 in much the same spirit. Then on to scheming her server to avoid FOIA as Secretary of State.

Hillary Clinton is running on her record of running from her record.

Think up a scandal and it’s probably in her dossier because that’s just how Hillary rolls.

Even William Safire, in his 1996 “Blizzard of Lies” essay in NY Times, branded Hillary Clinton a “congenital liar”. Now she is running on her record of “fighting for kids” and families as the heart of her focus. Give me a break. As Bill Clinton said, “this whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.” Or as Hillary could admit — if she actually had a shred of conscience — that she “requires the willing suspension of disbelief.”

As Safire put it in ’96:

“Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar.

Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.”

Does all that sound familiar? Pack on top of Safire’s list everything she has done since, adding a mountain of new lies to the old. How about pulling 900 FBI files on her enemies for an appetizer? Smell that abusive power. It eventually comes to her real record, even if you could put aside her trail of scandals, which basically leads to a long Legacy of Lies.

Clinton’s web of investigation problems

What a tangled web she weaves, when at first she practiced to deceive. Hillary has had a few encounters with reality along her campaign trail in the last year and half. But at every one she took the road not traveled to obfuscate it. Then she blamed others for her own scandalous behavior. Yet she always says she is claiming responsibility. Lie.

She wants to create the illusion of accountability.

Hillary claims she apologized for the server mishap. Well, she said it was a mistake. A four year long, two-year investigative one. That didn’t stop or curtail her lying about it. The people found out just weeks before the Democrat convention that she was not being charged for anything. Surprise!

BREAKING: After Endorsing Clinton, Obama Admin Calls FBI’s Email Investigation ‘Criminal’

The Politistick [excerpt]

[Josh earnest said] “They don’t have political jobs. They have career jobs as law enforcement officers and as prosecutors and investigators. That’s what their responsibility is. And that’s why the President when discussing this issue in each stage has reiterated his commitment to this principle that any criminal investigation should be conducted independent of any sort of political interference and that people should be treated the same way before the law regardless of their political influence, regardless of their political party, regardless of their political stature and regardless of what political figure has endorsed them.

Clinton has worked to downplay the seriousness of the investigations since the earliest days of questions concerning allegations that she maintained the email account in order to obscure shady dealings with foreign nationals to sell them influence in exchange for contributions that would help finance her inevitable bid for the presidency.

However, Clinton has augmented her denial efforts in recent weeks after the release of a damning Inspector General (IG) report that maintains that Clinton did, in fact, break federal law in refusing to “comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.“

In essence, the report clarifies that whatever the DOJ decides to do, the evidence shows unambiguously that Clinton had pledged to conduct State Department business in accordance with the department’s policies for protecting sensitive materials and that she failed to do so thousands of times.

In this matter, intent is irrelevant. Even if we accept that it was a supposed mistake, the end result is the same: she violated the law and has continually insisted that she did not, in fact, violate the law. Her actions were not merely violations of the Federal Records Act, but also of the Espionage Act’s 18 USC 793, known by many as the “gross negligence” statute.

See: http://politistick.com/breaking-endorsing-clinton-obama-admin-calls-fbis-email-investigation-criminal/#

There we have Obama defending that investigations should move forward irregardless of politics, and not be swayed by politics, as professionals.

Federal Records Act — this is something that apparently seems to be lost on Democrats and many in MSM.

What are records?

Records include all books, papers, maps, photographs, machine-readable materials, or other documentary materials, regardless of physical form or characteristics, made or received by an agency of the United States Government under Federal law or in connection with the transaction of public business and preserved or appropriate for preservation by that agency or its legitimate successor as evidence of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities of the Government or because of the informational value of the data in them (44 U.S.C. 3301).

44 U.S. Code § 3101 – Records management by agency heads; general duties

The head of each Federal agency shall make and preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency and designed to furnish the information necessary to protect the legal and financial rights of the Government and of persons directly affected by the agency’s activities.
(Pub. L. 90–620, Oct. 22, 1968, 82 Stat. 1297.)

44 U.S. Code § 3301 – Definition of records

a) Records Defined.—

(1)In general.—As used in this chapter, the term “records”—

(A) includes all recorded information, regardless of form or characteristics, made or received by a Federal agency under Federal law or in connection with the transaction of public business and preserved or appropriate for preservation by that agency or its legitimate successor as evidence of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities of the United States Government or because of the informational value of data in them; and
(B) does not include—
(i) library and museum material made or acquired and preserved solely for reference or exhibition purposes; or
(ii) duplicate copies of records preserved only for convenience.

(2)Recorded information defined.—

For purposes of paragraph (1), the term “recorded information” includes all traditional forms of records, regardless of physical form or characteristics, including information created, manipulated, communicated, or stored in digital or electronic form.

Then further guidelines and description. And it does include email and has for years.

18 U.S. Code § 2071 – Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally

(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.

Remember the famous Nixon quote?

People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook.”

And the people do know in Hillary Clinton’s case. She is a crook. Nixon resigned, Hillary Clinton is running for president.

Newt on the Fundation case

On a The Laura Ingraham Show, Newt Gingrich said:

“[Lifezette] The Clintons run what is in effect the equivalent of organized crime,” [Gingrich] said. “They had methodically figured out every way to fleece people. They did so at the expense of the people of Haiti. They did so at the expense of poor people everywhere.”

“It is astonishing to me that the level of corruption is so deep that neither the FBI nor the IRS nor anyone has taken apart this whole operation,” [Newt] said. “The more we learn from WikiLeaks, the clearer it is that these people engaged in routine, illegal behavior for personal enrichment. ”

Good for Newt stating the obvious. Why not call the Clintons’ Cosa Nostra what it is?

Personal enrichment is the name of the game. Cha ching. I am so done questioning why Hillary does what she does. It’s enough to know this is just the way she is. That is what we have to expect if she gets into the Oval Office. What ways could she abuse more power? I don’t know if I can count them all.

Crossing paths with Clintons

Once one crosses paths with the Clintons, in an unflattering way, they don’t forget it.

WND — Jerome Corsi | 05/13/2016

“I would like to share with you and your friends in the MSM why this subject is important,” she continued. “This situation is NO longer about that. It’s not about the details of these multiple assaults and rapes involving numerous women who never knew one another, telling the same [or] similar stories.

“This is NOT about infidelities, indiscretions, adultery, girlfriends or consensual sex,” [Kathleen] Willey emphasized. “This is about Bill Clinton’s multiple sexual assaults and rapes for over 40 years and Hillary Clinton’s threatening, bullying, intimidating and terrorizing all of the women who have suffered at his hands. It’s as simple as that.”

Even the Washington media joined the bully party.

Newsweek’s Evan Thomas, the author of this piece, said on a Washington talk show that Jones was just `some sleazy woman with big hair coming out of the trailer parks.’

More http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/pj-gladnick/2016/01/20/new-york-times-identifies-wrong-woman-carville-trailer-park-quote

It’s no longer, if it ever was, about the tawdry affairs, details or sex. It is about the abuse, or crime in Bill’s case, of women who crossed paths with the Clintonistas — the first crime family of American politics. There was even a White House war room with their inner circle to deal with what they termed the “bimbo eruptions”. As James Carville said, “Drag a hundred dollars through a trailer park and there’s no telling what you’ll find.”

Oh, did Hillary ever stand up for any of those women? No, she was right there to attack them and call them incredible. In fact, she was all for not believing women then. She attacked them and then played the victim.

Now she says women should always be believed. Then she says believed until they are shown to be liars. But this is a woman who Called Mrs. Smith a liar because it didn’t fit her political ambitions or agenda. Hillary defended the rapist of a 12 year old girl, then laughed about getting him off. That’s an advocate for women.

But about the sex and infidelity? It really never was… or is.

Must watch this

Hillary, the “Champion for Women?” — Still think it is just about Bill’s sex scandals?

Hillary does NAACP

Out in front of the Republican Convention, and pandering as usual, Hillary gave a speech to NAACP. (I wonder if she charged them 250K?)

She lectured on the rule of law and accountability. Her hypocrisy really has no bounds.

So is the message or the messenger the problem?

And as president, I will bring the full weight of the law to bear and making sure those who kill police officers are brought to justice. There can be no justification, no looking the other way.

That’s why our laws treat the murderers of police so seriously, because they represent the rule of law itself. If you take aim at that and at them, you take aim at all of us.

We must reform our criminal justice system because everyone is safer when there is respect for the law and when everyone is respected by the law.

I don’t think anyone anywhere needs to connect what is wrong with messenger Hillary Clinton lecturing us on the rule of law and accountability, saying she stands up for the rule of law — while she trounces it every chance she gets. And lying is no problem either.

Obama to Dallas: I can politicize death of 5 cops at memorial for them

Obama went to Dallas and did what he always does, ripped a fresh scab off the wound.

He lectured about undeniable institutional racism while it was a black nationalist who gunned down 11 cops. Micah said his intent was to kill white people and especially white cops at a Black Lives Matter protest. Therefore, Obama thought we all were in need of another lecture about our institutionalized racism.

He added his favorite word, Jim Crow to his speech. He kept trying to say what good progress we made while saying we are still habitually racist and should just admit it. Then he nationalized the shooting of these officers by talking about Michigan and Baton Rouge shootings. As if that were the reason the guy it, when he explicitly told them he wanted to kill white people, particularly cops.

But Obama had to insert the connection to those shootings at a memorial for fallen cops. He twisted the honor of the five dead cops, and 11 wounded, into an institutional racism problem. In fact, Dallas is exceptional at the fore on this issue. Wrong police department, but that didn’t matter.

Whoever he is talking to, same lecture. When Obama has a narrative to push, nothing is going to get in his way. Even 5 dead officers who did nothing wrong.

From his trip in Poland, Obama said after news broke:
“Let’s be clear: there is no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement.”

No, there isn’t. But then why does he imply there is to make the case?

So Jim Crow and Obama do Dallas

In a soliloquy of seduction, he began his way to his greater theme.

(Wa Post) “Your work, the work of police officers across the country, is like no other,” Obama said to the assembled officers. “From the moment you put on that uniform, you have answered a call that at any moment, even in the briefest interaction, may put your life in harm’s way.”

“All of it has left us wounded and angry and hurt.”

“It’s as if the deepest fault lines of our democracy have suddenly been exposed, perhaps even widened.”

Obama continued: “We wonder if an African American community that feels unfairly targeted by police and police departments that feel unfairly maligned for doing their jobs, can ever understand each other’s experience.” — More>

He twisted the honor of those fallen cops into an institutional racism problem.

In the text of his Dallas Memorial speech, he lectured on Jim Crow.
But that is typically a two-step routine for Obama.

“We know that the overwhelming majority of police officers do an incredibly hard and dangerous job fairly and professionally. They are deserving of our respect and not our scorn. And when anyone, no matter how good their intentions may be, paints all police as biased or bigoted, we undermine those officers we depend on for our safety. And as for those who use rhetoric suggesting harm to police, even if they don’t act on it themselves — well, they not only make the jobs of police officers even more dangerous, but they do a disservice to the very cause of justice that they claim to promote.

First is the setup — anecdotal or straw man — followed by a gut punch he relishes.

We also know that centuries of racial discrimination — of slavery, and subjugation, and Jim Crow — they didn’t simply vanish with the end of lawful segregation. They didn’t just stop when Dr. King made a speech, or the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act were signed. Race relations have improved dramatically in my lifetime. Those who deny it are dishonoring the struggles that helped us achieve that progress.

But we know, America, we know that bias remains. We know it. Whether you are black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or of Middle Eastern descent, we have all seen this bigotry in our own lives at some point. We’ve heard it at times in our own homes. If we’re honest, perhaps we’ve heard prejudice in our own heads and felt it in our own hearts. We know that.

And while some suffer far more under racism’s burden, some feel to a far greater extent discrimination’s sting. Although most of us do our best to guard against it and teach our children better, none of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune. And that includes our police departments. We know this.

And so when African Americans from all walks of life, from different communities across the country, voice a growing despair over what they perceive to be unequal treatment; when study after study shows that whites and people of color experience the criminal justice system differently, so that if you’re black you’re more likely to be pulled over or searched or arrested…”

He continued on in his Dallas speech for the fallen heroes:

…”when all this takes place more than 50 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, we cannot simply turn away and dismiss those in peaceful protest as troublemakers or paranoid.

We can’t simply dismiss it as a symptom of political correctness or reverse racism. To have your experience denied like that, dismissed by those in authority, dismissed perhaps even by your white friends and coworkers and fellow church members again and again and again — it hurts. Surely we can see that, all of us.”

Except it was a racist black nationalist who did this and was certainly not peaceful.

Are police being paranoid about being targeted? But their concerns are routinely dismissed by Obama and his DOJ. “Peaceful” these protests have not been, when violence or shutting down traffic or businesses is routine. Depends on your definition of “peaceful.”

What he has done is anchored his case on feeling and their perception. But we the people are always scolded for our faulty perception, whether it is broken borders and security or being targeted by the IRS — and lectured that there is not a smidgen of corruption.

As usual, he has a very bad habit of losing, ignoring, misplacing, dismissing or transposing blame from the actual shooter for what he had done and why. He’s compulsively reluctant to point his finger of blame, whether it is the Orlando shooter, the San Bernardino couple, or an illegal committing murder. Yet he can cast institutional aspersions on police .

Live from Warsaw, Poland, after the Dallas shootings broke, Obama hadn’t even readied to board the plane when he dropped his signature executive cloud over it — like a fog. Then he issued a slightly veiled preemptive political threat, from abroad as usual.

He started by calling it a “vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement.”

“For now, let me just say that even as yesterday I spoke about our need to be concerned as all Americans about racial disparities in our criminal justice system, I also said our police have an extraordinarily difficult job.”

“We also know when people are armed with powerful weapons, unfortunately, it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic.”

“Let’s be clear: there is no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement.”

“In the days ahead, we will have to consider those realities as well.”

Right out with “racial disparities.” Well, what about disparities when good, career police are gunned down? Cops who are protecting rights of actors like Black Lives Matter? Still, about the shooting of cops, the first words out of his mouth are about disparity.

Days later, Obama is having a meeting with BLM leaders and civil rights organizers.
I’d call BLM urban terrorists, which now earns them a meeting with the President.

Ignorance is an excuse

I’m sorry, ignorance is an acceptable defense, at least if you are Hillary Clinton.

Saved by intent. Lack of criminal intent says no criminal charges should be filed.

FBI Director Comey testifies about it’s investigation and his determination not to prosecute Hillary. Or as Pogo said, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” In this case, it is the Director of the FBI standing in the gap, as both a servant of the people and a career.

You normally cannot find what you aren’t looking for, or don’t want to find.

Only in the land of the government oversight hearing would Democrats use the number and quality of all the hacking to government server systems as a defense for what Hillary did. Make that clear, the numerous government hacking mitigates Hillary’s private server arrangement — so she looks better than government by comparison. (I knew they could find a way to use all those hacks for some political purpose.)

Isn’t it interesting that the determining process here was “intent” because he had already — at some point — ruled out the negligence factor? Then, by design, he did not meet the bar of intent. Well, if he really looked very closely for intent. And as most of us know, we normally do not find what we aren’t look for or don’t want to find.

It is funny too that a body who does not want to see intent, even if it is 5 feet in from of their face, can see intent all over the place within the politics of the hearing.

Director Comey goes round and round saying there was no evidence astablished of intent, but then they really weren’t looking too hard for any, if at all.

Now we know if you are commit an offense or break the law of conduct in government, it is only prosecutable if they knew they were doing it or violating it.

At numerous times he appeared to contradict himself while navigating the circumstance of the investigation.

So you have here a Sec of State that is going around telling others not to use any private email for work related conduct, while she herself has set up her own rogue server in her house to use for all her communications. But that, when investigated, she is absolved of having any intent.

How can you scold others about following security rules and ignore them yourself, without intent? That’s right, intentionally ignore them yourself, for all your communications and not even set up a government account.

Gross negligence is not grounds to prosecute, but it is an acceptable defense of criminal conduct. But the greatest asset for the Left is to apply the Alinsky rules to the process to defend yourself. And when it doubt, play dumb, whether you commit the act, or whether you are investigating it.

As Comey put it, he has worked hard to “stop the criminalization of negligence.” Then he himself fell back on ignorance of not knowing certain details about the case, including motive. However, by defaolt, he implied there was no intent by saying he found no prosecutable intent — whether he was really looking or not. He didn’t find it.


I did not, in any way, coordinate that. Brings back some fond memories.

United States of Divert, Deny and Lie

It’s mourning again in America, and Hillary has avoided one more obstacle in her grand anointing process. Welcome to the Department of Injustice.

Comey punted and claimed “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case”. Ouch, take that America. Those laws and justice that you value are not even a speed bump to the privileged elite ruling-class who operate above the law. (actually, it is beneath the law but who is arguing.) Cleanup in isle two!

Two people are now relieved, Hillary and Loretta Lynch. Well, Bill Clinton is three.

I thought “extremely careless” was being negligent.

While all the attention now shifts to the bombshell that FBI director is recommending no charges be filed, it diverts the emphasis off of the whole ordeal. It seems Comey was talking about a narrow statute dealing with classified information, but that was not the genesis of the scandal.

Long before the classified was sent or received, she set up an email system to obfuscate accountability and divert from archives and the FOIA system. If that is not willful intent going to all that trouble to set this up, I don’t know what is. So they gave immunity to the techie, then, for what?

It was not just a matter of some classified emails, which she lied about. It is the whole thing from the time she entered office to the time she left. But nothing is chargeable. It seemed all they wanted to look at in their FBI investigation was the classified emails. And how else would she correspond with Syd Blumenthal, out of the loop of State, if not on that server?

So, Hillary got her way when she claimed this was a security review. In effect, that is what it became. But there is a good article on the miscarriage of justice issue this is in Reason Magazine by Judge Andrew Napolitano. What about the Inspector General’s report that was just released?

Inspector General’s Report Refutes All of Hillary Clinton’s Defenses For Using Private Email Server

The Democratic frontrunner is painted as stubborn, self-isolated, and unaccountable in IG’s report.

Andrew Napolitano | June 2, 2016 | Reason.com

Late last week, the inspector general of the State Department completed a year-long investigation into the use by Hillary Clinton of a private email server for all of her official government email as secretary of state. The investigation was launched when information technology officials at the State Department under Secretary of State John Kerry learned that Clinton paid an aide to migrate her public and secret State Department email streams away from their secured government venues and onto her own, non-secure server, which was stored in her home.

The migration of the secret email stream most likely constituted the crime of espionage — the failure to secure and preserve the secrecy of confidential, secret or top-secret materials.

The inspector general interviewed Clinton’s three immediate predecessors — Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice — and their former aides about their email practices. He learned that none of them used emails as extensively as Clinton, none used a private server and, though Powell and Rice occasionally replied to government emails using private accounts, none used a private account when dealing with state secrets.

Clinton and her former aides declined to cooperate with the inspector general, notwithstanding her oft-stated claim that she “can’t wait” to meet with officials and clear the air about her emails.

The inspector general’s report is damning to Clinton. It refutes every defense she has offered to the allegation that she mishandled state secrets. It revealed an email that hadn’t been publicly made known showing Clinton’s state of mind. And it paints a picture of a self-isolated secretary of state stubbornly refusing to comply with federal law for venal reasons; she simply did not want to be held accountable for her official behavior.

The report rejects Clinton’s argument that her use of a private server “was allowed.” The report makes clear that it was not allowed, nor did she seek permission to use it. She did not inform the FBI, which had tutored her on the lawful handling of state secrets, and she did not inform her own State Department IT folks.

The report also makes clear that had she sought permission to use her own server as the instrument through which all of her email traffic passed, such a request would have been flatly denied.

Well, America, if you were not disgusted before, then this was another thumb in the eye to remind you how repulsive this whole process has been. Hillary operated for four years on an island of her own creation Then, when questioned, she lied, lied, lied. And that is beside what she did in Benghazi which is what set off all the red flares . She set the stage to get four Americans killed, and abandoned them both before and after their slaughter.

Comey covered his ass and preserved his job under a possible Hillary presidency. To say politics, and who the Clintons are, had nothing to do with it is ludicrous. This whole thing was loaded with politics. It would take Loretta Lynch bucking that recommendation to bring charges. Then it would be her own decision to do that, which she won’t do. To borrow a Bill Clinton phrase, “this whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”

The very day after we celebrated the 240th 4th of July, James Comey came out to deliver the recommendation of no charges. Loretta Lynch had been caught a week before in a private meeting with Bill Clinton. Now, as Comey spoke Obama amd Hillary were preparing to board AF-1 for a campaign rally in North Carolina for Hillary.

What a photo op, while she is escaping a major leg of suspicion about her future, she is hitting the trail with the President, as his Director in the Justice department is basically unindicting her. That beats a corsage While Comey claimed politics or influences have nothing to do with it, clearly they were on full display.

Then arriving in NC, with the President campaigning at her side, Hillary comes on stage with her “this is my fight song” music playing. That is an insult to the legacy of Benghazi. She’s been fighting against the damning Benghazi facts since the attack, amid another campaign for Obama’s reelection. From one political campaign to another — all politics.

    This is my fight song
    Take back my life song
    Prove I’m alright song
    My power’s turned on
    Starting right now I’ll be strong
    I’ll play my fight song
    And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
    ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

    — Rachel Platten, “Fight Song”

They never mentioned escaping the FBI intent to prosecute. Though she did refer to Obama’s birth certificate aimed at Trump. Was she comparing the two?

Her first words were, “I feel very privileged” to be with Obama, a friend she stood with, talking about their “memorable experiences” she and Obama had together, joking and mocking Trump. Well, Benghazi might be a memorable one too, if it weren’t for all their denial from the beginning. Strange irony that Hillary says Trump is unqualified and temperamentally unfit for the office. She is the heiress of unqualified.

Finally, Obama lectured, “when a crisis hits” what do you do he asks? “You got to make the tough calls,” he said. So when a crisis hits they lie, lie and lie some more. Then divert, deny, distract and obstruct the truth finding… that’s what they do. He’s ready to pass the baton to Hillary. Well, that is after our government collectively passed the opportunity to hold Hillary or Obama accountable for their boatload of scandals.

But these are strange days when a tweet is more important than a national security, felony scandal. And what Trump says about it is more important than what Hillary did.

Realated: It takes a village to elect a crook

Framing terrorism and Muslim jihad

Muslim Writer Calls Out Palestinian Terror Glorification

by IPT News  •  Jul 1, 2016

Thursday’s shocking Palestinian terrorist murder of a 13-year-old girl prompted the usual praise from Palestinian Authority (PA) outlets. Muhammad Taraireh was hailed as a martyr for stabbing and murdering 13-year-old Hallel Ariel, a U.S. citizen, as she slept in her bed.

“Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Taraireh, who carried out today’s operation in which one female settler was killed, and a male settler was injured,” read the post on Fatah’s Facebook page and translated by Palestinian Media Watch.

The terrorists’ mother said her son made her “proud” and called him a hero and a martyr. “Allah willing, all of them will follow this path, all the youth of Palestine,” Taraireh’s mother told a local Hebron news outlet.

This brutal murder comes shortly after Abbas’ senior advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein called for Palestinians to decapitate innocent Israelis. “Every place you find an Israeli cut off his head,” said Al-Einein.

The terrorists’ family will now begin receiving monthly payments that the PA pays to all terrorist families.

Blatant praise for terrorists is expected from Palestinian officials and significant segments of the Palestinian population. Yet the silence emanating from the broader Muslim world following such brutal attacks is similarly disturbing.

In a blog posted by The Times of Israel, Muslim interfaith activist Nadiya Al-Noor blasts Muslim hypocrisy in the context of Palestinian terrorism.

“I have seen firsthand the casual, destructive anti-Semitism that plagues the Muslim community,” she wrote. “I have heard it from the mouths of our religious leaders, from our politicians, and even from our otherwise peaceful, liberal Muslim activists. I have witnessed in horror the desperate attempts to justify Palestinian terrorism from people who I once respected. Why? Why do we decry all other types of terrorism, but bend over backwards to legitimize violence against Israeli Jews?”

Too many Muslims seek to justify such terrorism by citing the Israeli “occupation,” relying on “anti-Semitic lies fed to us by Al-Jazeera” such the canard that Israelis seek to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Al-Noor wrote. Too many Muslims refuse to refer to Israel by name and proclaim that “Resistance is not a crime!

Yet Al-Noor bravely opines “stabbing a little girl to death in the one place where she was supposed to be safe is certainly not “resistance.”

“We’ll stand up against the persecution of Christians, atheists, Hindus, Shias, Ahmadis, and anyone else who is persecuted,” she wrote. “We will sob to the heavens if a Palestinian is killed, but when it comes to Palestinian terrorism against Jews, we either turn a blind eye to it, or we twist the story to make the terrorists into the victims. This is unacceptable.”

“When you make excuses for terrorists, you support terrorism.”

Al-Noor’s observations directly relate to strategies adopted by U.S. Islamist organizations, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which routinely condemns acts of terrorism worldwide – but never when it comes to Israelis.

Well, a reminder of that other post showing Muslims sending money to the family of the Orlando terrorist shooter. It is the remaining silent part that screams out at the civilized world. How can you sit there and remain quiet while others do this in the name of your religion? (and some cheer then send money)

Even when they do speak up, it is token sympathy as if they feel obligated to just make a statement to absolve themselves. Then turn a blind eye to jihad practice by ignoring it.

If the world were waiting for the Muslims to resolve it they’d be waiting a long, long time. So-called good, peaceful Muslims leave it to the rest of the world to face or combat it and, frankly, I’m sickened by that.

It takes a village to elect a Crook

f You might say it takes a village of morons and idiots to elect a crooked criminal like Hillary Clinton. And if they’ll put her in once, then they certainly cannot say no on round two.

Like we don’t already know that. But that’s where America is though. One criminal out, another ready to waltz through the White House door. She isn’t sneaking in. No, she is basically the crowned heiress, anointed. From one unindicted traitor to another. And don’t get me started on her obsession with the vagina vote.

Not all crooks are savvy enough to run for office, much less for President. It takes skill and coordination. The Clinton’s have put all their skills to use, to benefit themselves. Then they assume you cannot stop them. Their mission has been successful so far.

Hillary gave two speeches attacking Trump. The first was not enough, she had to go for another bite of the apple. Then she complains about being personally attacked.

So now the Donald unloaded on the Queen of Preen. It did not paint an attractive picture of the diva of destruction. He said she could be the most corrupt person to run for the office.

The big advantage Hillary has is Dems line up lockstep and repeat her attacks. It’s what they do. Are you ready for their thousand points of attack? Well, so far her all-star lineup included Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, Obama, Elizabeth Warren, and Cecil Richards. Now she met with Nancy Pelosi in the House caucus to strategize her chorus of Chihuahuas.(no offense to breed) How many will be needed and used before it’s over? A village.

Clinton fraud Foundation

Wall Street Whistleblower Turns His Scrutiny on the Clinton Foundation

Charles Ortel: ‘This is a charity fraud’
BY: Alana Goodman | May 5, 2016 | Washington Freebeacon

The Wall Street analyst who uncovered financial discrepancies at General Electric before its stock crashed in 2008 claims the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation has a number of irregularities in its tax records and could be violating state laws.

Charles Ortel, a longtime financial adviser, said he has spent the past 15 months digging into the Clinton Foundation’s public records, federal and state-level tax filings, and donor disclosures. That includes records from the foundation’s many offshoots—including the Clinton Health Access Initiative and the Clinton Global Initiative—as well as its foreign subsidiaries.

According to Ortel’s reports, the contribution disclosures from the Clinton Foundation don’t match up with individual donors’ records. He also argued that the foundation is not in compliance with some state laws regarding fundraising registration, disclosure requirements, and auditing rules.

This week, Ortel is starting to release his findings in the first of a series of up to 40 planned reports on his website. His allegation: “this is a charity fraud.”

“Starting almost 20 years ago in 1997, the Clinton Foundation spread its activities from Little Rock, Arkansas, to all U.S. states and to numerous foreign countries without taking legally required steps to function and solicit as a duly constituted public charity,” wrote Ortel, in a letter posted on his website.

Although Ortel has been a commentator for conservative outlets, his findings might not be easy for authorities to ignore. After spending decades working in mergers and acquisitions at some of Wall Street’s top firms, he has been an early whistleblower on financial irregularities at companies such as General Electric and AIG.

It’s shaping up to be an interesting election. Maybe even a nail-biter for Hillary and Bill, no matter how much they try to cover it over and rework the documents.

Also interesting that to Democrats none of this matters, it’s another “nothingburger.”

But according to this report, so far, there are flagrant violations all the way to the beginning in the 1990’s. And if they had planned — if push comes to shove — on getting a presidential pardon from Obama, that looks very problematic. Ortel points out that most of the violations fall under state laws, not federal, so that would eliminate the presidential pardon possibility. Well, it is a real mess for Clintons and their allies. Nothing it ain’t.

Was Hillary seeking indictment?

Hillary Should Be Indicted

By Bradley A. Blakeman — Friday, 06 May 2016 | Newsmax

It has been said that: “a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich.” Well, if that is true then the FBI and Justice Department’s criminal investigation into the mishandling of classified materials with regard to Hillary Clinton as secretary of state are feeding from the all-you-can-eat buffet.

The news in the last few months has reported that there are as many as 100 to 150 FBI agents on the case. In addition, it was reported that a key Clinton aide who was responsible for the set up and maintenance of her home brewed private server used exclusively by Hillary for official State Department communications and who previously took the Fifth is now been granted immunity from criminal exposure in exchange for his testimony. It is also being reported that the FBI has broadened its investigation to include possible charges of corruption with regard to “pay to play” with donors to the Clinton Foundation.

A grand jury is made up of average citizens. I am sure they all have emails and are familiar with how they operate. This is not going to be hard for them to understand.

Just a few pertinent questions Hillary needs to answer. Compelling case, I can’t see any other legitimate result. Almost as if she were courting indictment.

Another Upstanding American Traitor

Another upstanding Muslim and resident of Virginia just happened to be captured in Iraq, after surrendering while fighting for ISIS. But then it gets better.

NY Post – (story here)

IRBIL, Iraq — A Palestinian-American member of the Islamic State group gave himself up to an Iraqi Kurdish military unit in the country’s north on Monday, an Iraqi Kurdish general said, a rare instance of a voluntary surrender of a militant fighting with the extremist group in Iraq.

The man has been identified as Mohammed Jamal Amin, or Mohamad Jamal Khweis, and reported to be from Alexandria, Virginia. Possible discrepancies over the name.

Birds of the feather, you know.

Clinton investigation 2.0

FBI, grand jury on second investigation into Hillary’s political corruption, says former US attorney

March 10, 2016 | Bizpac Review

Department of Justice officials have impaneled a federal grand jury in the Hillary Clinton email case and FBI agents have launched a second, separate investigation on political corruption involving the former secretary of state’s official activities and the Clinton Foundation, a former U.S. attorney told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Joseph E. diGenova, who served as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia for four years, said Wednesday he believes the FBI is investigating two separate Clinton scandals.

“The Bureau has between 100 and 150 agents assigned to the case. They would not have that many people assigned to a classified information case,” he told The DCNF, addressing Clinton’s use of a private email server located at her New York home.

“Based on reports that agents are asking questions about the foundation, it seems to me to properly the subject is a second prong of the investigation,” he said.

The Department of State’s Inspector General (IG) subpoenaed documents from the Clinton Foundation last fall to determine if State Department policies had been influenced by foundation activities. The State IG asked for records held by the foundation and Huma Abedin, who for six months simultaneously worked for former Secretary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

So the Clinton inquiry came to a fork in the road, and took it. The question is can they now handle a two-pronged investigation, or two separate ones, when they haven’t shown much will to do the first one yet? So I hope the numbers and the second front are all a good sign they are serious. We know Hillary doesn’t take the “security review” seriously.
