Coming Attractions: Port-Amerika

For anyone listening: I am only a messenger, one voice, and I control nothing or no one. But there is one interesting message I have to pass along now.

Please put it in context that the Left has been at this for months, for years, and their rhetoric is always high. That in mind, this comes from collective Marxist organizers.

I don’t know that they can crank tensions up any higher but that is their idea.

REMEMBER:

#September1st is the first day of
#SuperStrikeSeptember:

Collision symbol
Largest organized #GeneralStrike in modern US history

Collision symbol
Begins the same day as the nationwide #MarchForJustice for #BreonnaTaylor

Collision symbol
Every city will implement the #PortlandPrototype protest model

 

(BPD)–On September 1st, 2020, the Black Lives Matter movement, in #solidarity with the US #LaborMovement, shall make history. Together, the People will rise up and seize the reins of power and production and finally set this nation on the right path. The plan is simple:

What we already knew, Portland is their protest model, their prototype. And they plan on pollenating that across America. I certainly hope the DOJ is watching it like the rest of us.

They boast this riot model of violence and urban terrorism has been sustained for over ninety days. So they plan on duplicating that success everywhere they can.

And there is definitely a solidarity with media and Democrat pols. What is left to the imagination? Now you know what to expect from Dems and media who amp it up.

Obama’s Very Pregnant Problem

When Barack Obama stuck his head back in the political fray, he may know or not that he has a whopper of a problem. Note, I did say singular.

Last weekend Obama ended his silence by speaking out about the Flynn case running out of steam. Well, it really appeared to to bug him, didn’t it?

The Hill

“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said in an audio clip that was obtained and released by Yahoo News.

“And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk,” the former president said. “And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”

Barry Soetoro, Barack Hussein, or whatever name he is using, is probably starting to feel squeezed like a dishrag. If he isn’t there yet, he soon will be. He is likely starting to consol with some advisor (David Axelrod or Eric Holder) about the political ramifications of his newfound situation.

The more you think about it, the more you will see he has a predicament on his hands. Sure this case was about Flynn, so he and media wants us to think, but it is much more about Barack Obama and his administration. A s the coup was Obama’s administration.

I am not being dramatic, I am disappointed that conservative press has not connected the dots for Obama’s situation, problem yet. The quandary for Barry is how he plays his cards, he dealt himself, which determine everything else forward. What do I mean?

Either he plays it that he was the absentee professor, in which case he claims he had a rogue agency meddling in the election and presidency after it; or he simply says he was fully aware of the treasonous seditious coup afoot under his scandolous administration. See the problem with both options.

He is in a very bad place. But hey, he’s had almost four years now to think about and plan this out along with his excuses for it.

There is one other possibility that he could try to defend it all as justified. But that is getting harder, seeing how flawed and illegitimate it all was. We don’t even have to get into why, as in the real motive. He has to choose how to respond to what we’ve found and what is yet coming down.

Personally, I would like to see him have to spend 7+ million or so trying to explain his actions and those of his administration, just for starters.

No wonder Barry is lashing out under mounting pressure. Not that he ever cared about defending himself, he never had to. He has two paths in front of him, each will determine his future path and strategy. Does he try to defend indefensible behavior?

Does he once again say he was not in the loop in it all? But we know he was there and in on it this time. So does he pass it off as rogue actions of an out of control intelligence apparatus acting on their own? Or does he admit he was in the loop but they were all justified in their scheme? Will he take the hit and responsibility for all that went on? Or will he try to blame all his subordinates for screwing him and his legacy (no-scandal record) up?

His underlying problem is that kind of operation can only be done under the president’s authority and knowledge. By definition it requires his approval. Comey blessed him.

Oh, he is in a heap of trouble. You know the saying that you can give someone enough rope. And he has been given lots of rope and opportunities to explain this over the years. But just like Benghazi, he never does try to explain it. Now he must choose how to respond. Both are inherently bad choices for him. No surrogates or advisors can bail him out either.

I sort of expect that Barr understands all that very well. And Durham is bound to come up with something damning about Obama’s administration. So even if that does not involve him personally, he will now have to have an explanation for it. That is something Barry Soetoro has never been forced to do before. He doesn’t like coerced decisions or explanations he cannot pass off to someone else. No one can do it for him this time.

An Open Letter On FBI

For years now, we have been forced to qualify every conversation on the subject by stating the FBI is honorable and deserves our unwavering respect for the great job it does.

Repeat: “I do not demean the FBI” echoing this decree on a loop.(optional megaphone)

I would like to counter that at the risk of offending those required sentiments. I am extremely ashamed and offended by what the FBI has done, apparently with carte blanche over the last 3 years. I am disturbed and disgusted by it. And I will not make apologies to anyone for my informed disdain.

This was not just some abuses within the system that occurred, it was the entire system that was abused. Nor was it some case of “sloppiness” regarding FISA either.

Not by some rogue agents within the department, this was done and condoned at the highest levels within the Bureau. Then it was defended even to this very day. I am supposed to have empathy for that? I think not.

That some of those responsible for this conduct are still employed in that agency is further cause for disgust. I cannot misplace my outrage for that.

To the rank and file agents: we did not do this to you, your agency did it. Do not blame us for the reputation hit to your agency. We know you did not force your superiors to do it either. That does not, however, minimize what has happened. It was egregious for the country not only your department. It shed a stain on our entire government as a whole.

I will not make gratuitous excuses for or minimize what FBI leadership did. As the premier law enforcement agency in the country, there must be accountability. Weeding out a few of the bad actors does not cut it. Replacing one director does not solve the problem. It is a leadership issue. And we cannot condone it.

So the “good work” the Bureau does cannot be used by anyone as a blank license for this.

The lacking necessary oversight that allowed it to happen is another big problem. I am disgusted by that as well. And that must not be repeated.

I make no apologies now or in the future. Those rank and file agents must now live with it, and the damage done, the same way the rest of the country has to live with this stain. We can only hope that it becomes a learning experience for us all – and for history itself.

Note: the era of qualifying statements on honorability of the FBI have officially ended.

Perennial Bias At Work

Our government used the pretext of Russia to spy on a presidential campaign. And it parlayed that “investigation” into the presidency after Trump entered office.

  • The IG Horowitz report declares it found no documented or admitted political bias in the cause of the investigation.
  • It found 16- 17 problems with how the investigation was handled.
  • Horowitz testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that no one who touched this entire investigation should feel vindicated.
  • It found fraud committed in the FISA process.
  • The investigation used a dirty Russian-based dossier, paid for bu a political campaign, employing a foreign agent, as evidence in a FISA court for wiretapping + surveillance.

The question of political bias is almost moot now. Does it matter or is it relevant? An investigation has inherent bias, since the purpose is that someone probably did something wrong. But they qualify political bias as a possible concern.. I am concerned about both.

What matters is what they did, errors and all. The central reason political bias seems to matter is based on whether it should have started or not. And was it a basis for the investigation? Was it the purpose of it?

So did we really expect them to call the investigation unjustified? That would have been an automatic indictment on everything they did. It would be a glaring admission. It is doubtful even an Inspector General would be willing to do that.

Putting that bias question aside, the whole rest of the process which followed is an indictment on the cause of that investigation. Why break laws, use sinister conduct or act with malfeasance in investigating a justifiable cause?

And all that conduct happened to be against Trump.

So maybe too much emphasis is placed on whether there was provable political bias in the contamination of the decision to investigate? At least it was all around it. Shouldn’t there be a necessary attempt to eliminate bias? But that is not what we saw.

Back to what we citizen voters think. Much was made about our interpretation of inherent bias in the investigation. Though we had probable cause to suspect and confirm bias in the process. In fact, it almost screamed bias. That no one would have heard those screams would be irresponsible. How could we not see it?

All we heard since it began, and continued in its various forms, is that the FBI and its investigation is above reproach. But that is not what we saw. We saw a natural cause for bias alarm. Yet that we even questioned the FBI or basis of it was the problem.

The whole Russia meddling problem in the election had little to do with Trump. They did not seem as interested in investigating Russian meddling as they were in investigating Trump collaboration. Russia was the predicate to investigate Trump.

Now if we had fraud in the investigating itself, we certainly had it in spades in the media reporting all along. It amplified whatever government was doing, both publicly and behind closed doors. You could label the reason for it as political bias. But does it matter? The media were doing what they were doing. Do we have to prove what effect their political bias had in order to validate whether it existed? That would seem absurd.

Yet the entire cabal boils down to that one simple fact: our Government used Russia as a pretext to investigate Trump, in an election and after. Period. Nothing changes that.

But Cardinal Comey calls our fears, analysis, criticisms and conclusions “all made up.

This Is Not Normal

This Is Not Normal

IG Horwitz testifies to Senate Judiciary Committee on the IG Report on Trump investigation and FISA abuse.

That should be the headline across the country. The Senate committee looked into the IG Report and discovered that this is not normal. It is anything but normal.

Yes people, normal is now gone. It has been replaced by what we have seen happen in 2016, then continuing 3 years in various forms. To some extent, right up until today.

Pre-rebuttal of the IG Report

Leaks, lies, coups and liars’ legacies = just some procedural Bullshit?

Incidentally, if you don’t like the word bullshit then you may elect to skip this piece.

When is enough enough? Let me start by writing backwards, the way government usually does things. (in reverse) Starting with a premise and working backward to origination.

Synopsis: media has broken their cone of silence to actually talk about the upcoming IG Horowitz. Until now that has been a forbidden topic of conversation. Now, armed with numerous leaks, I presume they’re trying to manipulate our expectations for the report.

At first it seemed like they were just trying to get out ahead of it for damage control, to spin the outcome and temper our expectations. But now it looks like there may be something to what they are saying. (even if they’ve been in denial for 3 years.)

Then this report only becomes part of the cover-up.

Cut the bullshit:: This is a government report justifying what government did.

We should be clear on that. It’s what government does. And when government covers up for itself, it is doing what government does. When regular people do that, it is called a cover-up – considered worse than the crime in many cases.

All definitions from here on go into the trashcan – other than for bullshit. They, government, can alter or rewrite definitions as they go. The word ™*They in this form shall stand for government… or big, Deep State government.

Let me say this is not about the why *They did what *They did — other than the original investigation — but about what *They did. I think the motives are self-evident. *They, as in government, includes the head of the administration apparatus at the time, Obama.

Leaks of the document are flowing out daily.

They come from somewhere. You have to assume from within the *They apparatus. Reporters and MSM are only to happy to put them out there. (apparently sanctioned) Something about toning down or lowering expectations, I presume.

The conclusions of the report leaked out basically say the Trump investigation was justified from the onset. That the Carter Page probe was justified. But that there were some departmental problems, which he is going to point out, including how the “lower level” lawyer under James Baker altered FISA documents. Nevertheless, it did not change the outcome of this justifiable investigation, or its merits. Chew that slowly.

Yet there is no underlying problem with the integrity of the investigation itself, only some processes of it. Gee, and downhill from there on it goes. This starts to sound like every other “report” that has come out prior. But look at the accusations flying about everything Trump does. Put common sense aside.

In other words, what they are saying – if the report verifies it — is that the report is basically inconsequential as to the outcome of this Hoax. It is only relevant so far as procedural errors it quibbles with. But if it validates that the cooked up investigation and subsequent deep state coup was justified, then it becomes a part of the substantiation of the whole thing. See how this works? This IG look-see validates what *They did.

So unofficially, this IG Report could be called the cleanup detail of DOJ. One of the major problems it has is being released smack in the middle of an impeachment process. Whatever you think of the latter… and what a long winding road that has been: filled with innuendo, lies, dirt-digging politics and conspiracy theories etc. (dirt digging on Trump)

Maybe all we have witnessed to now is a natural byproduct of the “fundamental change” Obama promised. It certainly appears that way.

Now that they know *They can operate this way and have sweeping influence, it sets a precedent for future coups or phony investigations. Proof that it all works and can be very effective – even using CIA sources. Do you really think it is only Trump who would be subject to this radical insurrection of an interconnected cabal? Think again.

Imagine the extreme irony of Democrats doing a major investigation and impeachment process over digging dirt on a political opponent… while what they have done for 4 years was a political dirt-digging operation on a candidate and then a president.

This whole thing combined is nothing more than an effort to bring down the President, and all it has ever been for three years. Now they bring in the IG of itself, to justify itself, by posing as an independent critic of itself. And all predicated on grade-A BS.

Of, by, and for Deep State

Our government was weaponized against a political opponent. Obama politicized it entirely and then it naturally became weaponized. The problem for Democrats is that it was not politicized or weaponized by Trump. We know the beginning, the means, and the desired outcome — none of which aligns with Trump’s objectives.

Isn’t it extremely odd that no one would pay any attention to Ukraine before? You could not force media/coverage to talk about Ukraine. Why? The many tentacles DNC and Democrats had working in Ukraine. To even mention Ukraine was labeled a conspiracy theory. Ukraine itself was branded as a conspiracy. Now Ukraine is elevated to the most important place at the intersection of corruption and politics, at the most critical time in national politics. But Trump didn’t do all that.

Isn’t it also funny that after the Trump rally in Florida, the media is squealing like stuffed pigs about the president’s use of the word Bullshit? Yet it is the one word in our language that could possibly encompass all *They and their media allies have done to him and our last election. That word cuts through the smoke and mirrors.

And still the only thing that matters to these people is the next election, and defeating Trump. That government is still politicized and weaponized, ready and available. Media is still *Its biggest ally. Democrats are still engaged in election politics against their political opponent – and wiling to use any means at their disposal against it. (that opponent has also become the people, as it always does!)

Then came the IG report that media spins as an expected barn-burner that isn’t. Apparently they got their way. The report they refused to acknowledge as necessary or meaningful before, suddenly now becomes a central asset to knock down any “conspiracies” about what really took place in the 2016 election. (the truth)

According to these media reports: the Counterintelligence investigation on Trump was properly predicated and properly launched. So the rest is justified history.

That means it is 4-500 pages of meaningless procedural minutia that did not generally affect the overall investigation. Thus, the investigation was credible while there are outstanding procedural, process problems. That concept needs some explaining.

Message: nothing to see here. Move along. Government was justified in its overreaching investigation which turned into a full-blown bloodless coup. More CYA for the cover-up.

Even the Bullshit is getting old — calling a spade what it is, and an IG Report what it is.

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.)

“Mr. Trump has claimed that the purpose of Mr. Mueller’s May 16 White House visit was to interview him for the vacant FBI director post. Mr. Mueller, a former FBI director, has said the meeting’s purpose was to discuss the bureau in general.

Whatever the purpose, John Dowd, Mr. Trump’s attorney during the ensuing 22-month probe, said Mr. Mueller had a duty not to meet with the president knowing he was likely to be investigating the Trump “

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.

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!

Not Just A Conspiracy Theory

In an interview with Sean Hannity, Trump thanks himself for exposing all the corruptness that has gone on in Washington. And he is right.

Much has now been exposed about how big the swamp really is. It is incredible. But for Trump, would we have confirmed all that? I don’t believe so. They were so good at hiding and covering it that they must have laughed at what they were able to do. They could operate almost openly, in front of us, right below the surface with impunity and yet we could not know or prove the extent.

Of course we knew of the Deep State and would find tidbits later but still never knowing the corruption. We were mocked as nuts. We also knew of Hillary’s plans of a shadow government but that too was dismissed for years as conspiracy.

However, this real incestuous apparatus could then be used on anyone. It happened to be Trump but could have been whoever challenged or exposed it. We were at the tip of the iceberg with Hillary’s server. So close.

Not only were we lied to for years and ridiculed as tin-foil conspiracy nuts but in reality it was bigger, more interconnected even worse than we suggested. (if that was possible)

We had a cabal of government within our government. Still do to some extent though now exposed for the network it is. Wouldn’t anyone rather know that there is such an apparatus than denying one exists?

The politicization and radicalism of government was more less complete with Obama. Then he opened and spread access to all the information in their 17 agencies. It would be hard or impossible to stop such a beast once it was in motion. And using its own power, would be capable of defending itself as a whole. This would not require direct orders from one quarter to another, as it was all of the same radical mindset. Preserving itself and protecting its own would be a top priority. Who could challenge it?

Now we have come full circle. How so? Since Trump became president, the left has asserted all kinds of conspiracies starting right from the election. Funny how as long as Democrats controlled the executive branch, even it alone, they posited that this whole cabal within it was only a figment of imagination. On top of that the Congressional allies concealing and covering it. That didn’t require a majority. The left did not have to control Congress once it was all in place. It operated as designed, with impunity.

The idea Trump had or controlled such an apparatus – a part of the resistance – is ludicrous and complete fantasy. It was aimed at him rather than a tool for him. Though how many times did we hear the Left postulate that Trump was now President and disagrees with his own administration? What nonsense.

When Trump came in he probably had no idea to the extent of the tentacles. Rooting it out would not be easy. The key part of radicalization within the justice department had an essential role. Even as a new administration would take over, DOJ could operate as a rogue resistance to cover for the entire cabal. Some of us saw that dilemma from the beginning. What could be done about it? Enter Jeff Sessions as caretaker for it. He did enough to appear to be working while basically not making waves to disrupt it. So did we really have an Attorney General? No we didn’t. We had Deep State as the default AG running the show. They proved to be a formidable force. Even better if no one threatened its consolidated power or existence.

Of course any Republican president would face such an apparatus. And the Left would continue to deny one exists. How much could it be exposed under any other Republican? We may not know but my guess is not to this level. And the longer it could be denied and ignored, the more power it had.

The elements may still be there but diminished in their stealth capabilities. Now it is forced to operate more in the open. It has all become more transparent than it would have been, not a good thing for it. Their only recourse and defense to this overexposure is to investigate Trump and try to turn any of its power against the president.

So far at least, Trump is winning for having exposed it as what it is. But defeating it is yet another matter. Only it’s not just a conspiracy theory anymore.

FALN: justice denied

These domestic terrorists remain unprosecuted for their acts. Bill and Hillary pardoned FALN terrorists and enabled them. Obama later pardoned one of the FALN stragglers.

Eric Holder did his part and now has presidential aspirations of his own.

Yet MSM remains as quiet as church mice about these terrorists. Always has. Drive a news story? Fuhgeddaboudit! Congress has done little to capture terrorist thugs in Cuba.

Where is justice? A lot of people are asking that same question these days.

Hillary never paid the price or was held accountable. No one was.

Terrorists Murdered My Father. They Have Not Seen Justice

By Joe Connor January 24, 2019 | National Review
Bill Clinton and Barack Obama gave some clemency; the chief bomb-maker escaped to Cuba.

Forty-four years ago today, terrorists shattered my family. Sadly, the war against these individuals and their benefactors continues to this day.

My father, 33-year-old Frank Connor, and three other innocent men were murdered, while scores were injured and maimed, on Jan. 24, 1975, when the Marxist Puerto Rican terrorist group Armed Forces for National Liberation (“FALN”) blew up New York’s historic Fraunces Tavern during a crowded lunchtime. The FALN appointed themselves my father’s judge, jury, and executioner, profiling, targeting, and savagely murdering so-called “reactionary corporate executives.” The Connor family had planned to celebrate my ninth and my brother’s 11th birthday that very night.

Fraunces Tavern was targeted by the FALN — who paid lip service to independence but in reality sought to impose a Cuban-style socialist regime in Puerto Rico — for its proximity to Wall Street and for its storied reputation as the birthplace of American liberty. Alexander Hamilton and the Sons of Liberty met there. General George Washington bade farewell to his officers at Fraunces after the Revolutionary War…./

The Great What If?

Just allow Victor Davis Hanson to walk you through a meticulous ‘what if’ scenario of Obama in place of Trump being investigated. The details are chilling.

All one has to do is plug in all the relevant factors and apply them to Obama. It is a laborious task but someone had to do it. Don’t let your jaw fall on the floor.

Should the FBI Run the Country?

By Victor Davis Hanson | January 20th, 2019 | American Greatness

Since the media would doubtless answer that loaded question, “It depends on the president,” let us imagine the following scenario.

Return to 2008, when candidate Barack Obama had served only about three years in the U.S. Senate, his sum total of foreign policy experience. And he was running against the overseas old-hand, decorated veteran, and national icon John McCain—a bipartisan favorite in Washington, D.C.

During the campaign, unfounded rumors had swirled about the rookie Obama that he might ease sanctions on Iran, distance the United States from Israel, and alienate the moderate Arab regimes, such as the Gulf monarchies and Egypt.

Stories also abounded that the Los Angeles Times had suppressed the release of a supposedly explosive “Khalidi tape,” in which Obama purportedly thanked the radical Rashid Khalidi for schooling him on the Middle East and correcting his earlier biases and blind spots, while praising the Palestinian activist for his support for armed resistance against Israel.

Even more gossip circulated that photos existed of a smiling Barack Obama with Louis Farrakhan, the Black Muslim extremist and radical pro-Gaddafi patron, who in the past had praised Adolf Hitler and reminded the Jews again about the finality of being sent to the ovens. (A photo of a smiling Obama and Farrakhan did emerge, but mysteriously only after President Obama left office).

Imagine that all these tales in 2008 might have supposedly “worried” Bush lame-duck and pro-McCain U.S. intelligence officials, who informally met to discuss possible ways of gleaning more information about this still mostly unknown but scary Obama candidacy.

But most importantly, imagine that McCain’s opposition researchers had apprised the FBI of accusations (unproven, of course) that Obama had improperly set up a private back-channel envoy to Iran in 2008. Supposedly, Obama was trying secretly to reassure the theocracy (then the object of Bush Administration and allied efforts to ratchet up pressures to prevent its acquisition of nuclear weapons) of better treatment to come. The conspiratorial accusation would imply that if Iran held off Bush Administration pressures, Tehran might soon find a more conducive atmosphere from an incoming Obama Administration. …/

Okay, what would happen? Safe to say there would be some reacting going on along with some outrage. For a while, I have been asking one irritating question. Do tell us:

Since they have been busy trying to give us reasons why this investigation took place and attempting to explain that process; then where was the investigation on Obama? Now someone has filled in many of those blanks with this scenario. Does FBI run the country?

In Retrospect: MLK Revisited

There is a lonely phrase in MLK’s “I have a dream” speech.

“You have been the veterans of creative suffering” — a line that preceded King’s more famous dream words.

So I know the context in which it was written. But I just can’t help seeing, in hindsight today, an even wider target for those words. There is a fertile audience.

There are a lot of “veterans of creative suffering” in our country today, maybe not in the same way. Granted to a lesser extent than King’s intent. Nevertheless, veterans of creative suffering… by the very government that was suppose to represent, stand for, and defend their rights.

When a government gives its own people the cold shoulder while at the same time gushes over the concerns of illegal aliens, even before they enter the country, then we have lost.

When securing our border is defiantly called an act of immorality, we have lost.

We have lost when a government by the people for the people has become a government against the people, and against its most vulnerable. We have become witnesses to it when a law like the freedom of information act is transposed into the Freedom From Information. When the objective “for the people” becomes for the self-serving politicians.

And this theme continues on in its incremental desire to control the people, not free them; to tread over them rather than lift them up; seeks to overcome and obstruct the people rather than remove obstacles in their way. A government that plots to remove obstacles in the way of an organized invasion, for the sake of their own political lust for power. A government that has over years encouraged this invasion.

When everyone else in the world is entitled to have a dream but the American people. And their dream supersedes our dream.

Creative suffering?

Judicial Watch: Federal Court Orders Hillary Clinton to Answer Additional Email Questions Under Oath

Judicial Watch — NOVEMBER 15, 2018

(Washington, DC) –Judicial Watch announced today that U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that within 30 days Hillary Clinton must answer under oath two additional questions about her controversial email system.

In 2016, Clinton was required to submit under oath written answers to Judicial Watch’s questions. Clinton objected to and refused to answer questions about the creation of her email system; her decision to use the system despite warnings from State Department cybersecurity officials; and the basis for her claim that the State Department had “90-95%” of her emails.

After a lengthy hearing yesterday Judge Sullivan ruled that Clinton must address two questions that she refused to answer under-oath.

Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

Judge Sullivan read his opinion from the bench, deciding that the question about the creation of the email system was within the scope of discovery. Judge Sullivan rejected Clinton’s assertion of attorney-client privilege on the question about the emails “in the State’s system.”

The court refused Judicial Watch’s and media’s requests to unseal the deposition videos of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and other Clinton State Department officials. And it upheld Clinton’s objections to answering a question about why she refused to stop using her Blackberry despite warnings from State Department security personnel. Justice Department lawyers for the State Department defended Clinton’s refusal to answer certain questions and argued for the continued secrecy of the deposition videos.

This hearing and court ruling is the latest development in a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit about the controversial employment status of Huma Abedin, former deputy chief of staff to Clinton. The lawsuit, which seeks records regarding the authorization for Abedin to engage in outside employment while employed by the Department of State, was reopened because of revelations about the clintonemail.com system (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)). The court also granted discovery to Judicial Watch to help determine if and how Clinton’s email system thwarted FOIA.

“A federal court ordered Hillary Clinton to answer more questions about her illicit email system – which is good news,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is shameful that Judicial Watch attorneys must continue to battle the State and Justice Departments, which still defend Hillary Clinton, for basic answers to our questions about Clinton’s email misconduct.”

See at: https://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-federal-court-ordered-hillary-clinton-to-answer-additional-email-questions-under-oath/

Okay, looks good on it’s face. My conclusion would be the insult this whole thing is to our system of justice. Here we had Clinton commit violations that were far outside the law.

So now because of the fact she did it all under the job title she was in, the government has to come in to defend her actions and explain her egregious conduct. (Excuse my barfing”) It is so outrageous that both the DOJ and Dep of State could be called in to defend her conduct. And of course they have to do it at our taxpayers’ expense, too. A double.

But that is the way this whole thing goes and Hillary knows it. She sewed the seeds of it into the State Dep. She knew and planned this. You have to wonder if this makes State accomplices to her crimes? And if Barry Soetoro is also liable for having allowed it?

Then the last salient point: why do we continually always find about this mostly through Judicial Watch when we had active Congressional investigations, and presumably DOJ investigations as well? Yet here they are in battle for answers some 5-1/2 years later.

No wonder Hillary’s new theme is “Onward Together.” She commits the offenses then drags everyone along, forced to defend her every step of the way. “Togetherness” that way has always been one of endearing benefit to the Clintons.

Democrat Campaign Rhetoric

I scanned a few “up and coming” Democrat candidates for Congress and here is what I find. Caution: it is a murky picture. Very entertaining though.

As background, you’ve heard about new Democrats being recruited to run in largely Republcan held districts. Many of them touting military careers and many of them women.

In the last few weeks, districts who were Republican are considered “toss ups”. More recently, some are being relabeled now “leaning Democrat.” Right, I believe that.

When you look at their social media campaign statements you see similarities.

Well, one after another their statements read like a book of platitudes. No, not about current hot button issues but glowing terms. My sampling were not heavily campaigning. They did not seem to have layers of popularity and comments on their posts.

But those posts themselves, claiming the reason they were running, read eerily similar too. They didn’t tell you about their stand on issues. But like this one, it was personal. Well like this: “I’m running for Congress so that our children will have a brighter future and so that all our daughters will know that they can grow up to be and do whatever they dream.”

‘Hello’…. I mean your children had no hopes or dreams without you running? Wait, children have had those ideals and goals as long as I remember. Glad yours now have a brighter future only because you are running! What does that say? Well, kids have had those rosy ideals until 2009, when dreams took a nose dive. Now they are back?

They talk about about “shared values” and “moving the country forward.” What does that mean? I prefer an ash heap, myself. All undefined, vague terms to try to appeal to voters’ emotions and inspirations without much thought to what the words mean. You are supposed to know if you are a left wing progressive Democrat. And you do: against tax cuts, raising taxes, growing spending, cutting military spending. All of which is like caviar on a cracker to Democrats. “Come get it”. Free college, socialized medicine, single payer, Medicare for all, opening up the borders. Who can be against all that?

Another lofty word they are for, “equality”. So like we Republicans are for inequality, the more unequal the better. They want “affordable” things; like we want everything unaffordable. They actually support policies that make things less affordable. “Together, we’ll bring a sea change to Congress.” What kind of change, doing what? What will be different with you in Congress? Right, your children will finally have a bright future. “We know how vital our educators are to our communities.” (pandering to teachers – unions) We don’t even like teachers or value them. In fact, we see no use for them.

“We are fighting to keep dark money out of politics.” That’s popular. Naturally, a reference to Citizens United and reversing the Supreme Court decision. Hillary touted that in her campaign along with overturning the Heller decision. They use a complete script of progressive code words for which only Dems have a decoder. Dog whistles like their talk about hatred or hate speech. We are racists while they are, well, the good racists.

No election is complete today without sympathy for illegals. Say nothing about the crimes committed by illegals which impact Americans from coast to coast. Then there is the animus for law enforcement, ICE or border control. But of course they use the right statements to frame it. So they want people afraid of law enforcement and unsympathetic to cops being killed. They want to dehumanize law enforcement, along with anyone who works for the Trump administration. Amnesty is the bomb, “a path to citizenship” is the rage, from people who don’t much value US citizenship. And we are not exceptional. In fact, NY Governor Cuomo led the charge saying “America never was that great.”

Give a shout out for “justice,” especially the more radical candidates. The rest of us must want injustice. Except that we have a lot of injustice going on coming right from the Dep of Justice, but Dems see none of it nor do they care. As long as Deep State is in control Dems are happy. And as long as they are in control of Deep State. But “justice” talk is usually the segue for Resistance — sedition. That subversive obstruction is always a good thing for Dems to run on and support, for justice’s sake, when they do not control government.

Another popular favorite is ____ is against women… “”who stand to lose access to affordable birth control.” I wish I had a nickel every time I heard that bumper sticker phrase. It was popular against Kavanaugh, too. No one is losing access. “Affordable” is now a code word for free or almost free. Losing access, a guaranteed right, to free this or that. Like I’m losing access to a Mercedes 450 SL. I declare such access a “right.” Still, loosing access to something free is a popular notion. Affordable just translates to what they think they should not pay for.

Then there is the golden altar or calf of abortion, Planned Parenthood. Useful against Kavanaugh and campaigning. But I see nothing threatening Planned Parenthood’s status or Roe v. Wade. Nothing. Yet the great scare is on to “protect women’s reproductive health, rights” from invisible harm.” Personally, I’m opposed to women’s reproductive health.

They tell us “stay out of women’s sex organs” yet march in the streets with vagina costumes, condoms and protest wearing pussy hats. They live and breathe in women’s reproductive organs, at least in campaigns, and want them exhaustively legislated. How can killing babies be a stand for women’s reproductive health, or for healthcare? Just do not not legislate that. They yell about preserving lives by preserving abortion and planned parenthood. Planned Parenthoods are saving lots of lives, aren’t they?

Another habit Dems seem to have in common, these up and coming pretenders, is that they make the entire campaign about them not the people they are running to represent. Is that telling? It is not about the issues. And the kicker is the Democrats seem to eat it up. They could not care less, only that he/she is a card carrying socialism-pushing progressive. In fact, whatever he/she says is fine, as long as they are progressive. They will vote with the Marxist left anyway, so what does it matter what they do or say?

So which is worse: the platitudes of vague ideals or what they do say about the issues? San Fran Nan called MS-13 members a spark of divinity. It contradicts her staunch support and protection for abortion. Does a spark of divinity only apply to gang-bangers? Aborted lives must be much lower on the chain than even MS-13 gang members.

But this is getting long, the hour is getting late. The contradictions and vague platitudes remain, popular only to the Left. What outcome can we expect from this soup for fools?

Fusion, FBI, Steele, Money and a Dirty Dossier

It turns out, as no surprise, that just a few days before Comey’s infamous press conference to clear Hilary’s server scandal, a top DOJ official was in touch with Christopher Steele and laying the groundwork for a counterintelligence investigation against Trump.

Well, that is the sequence of events when you look at it objectively and plug in the facts. So this strongly suggests that while the same people who worked on the Hillary server investigation (or lack of one) had the impetus to ditch it and go after Trump in a full blown counterintelligence investigation. A project that led to working not only with Steele but also with Fusion, the subcontractor for Hillary’s dirt-digging operation on Trump.

See John Solomon’s article on the tie of FBI to Fusion and Steele. What a tangled web.
Opinion: How a senior DOJ official helped Dem researchers on Trump-Russia case — The Hill

This is not a Trump scandal, and never was. It is yet another Hillary Clinton and DOJ scandal. How does Mueller ignore it all? Better yet, how can he write a report void of all the pertinent facts? But see how the Hillary Obama lapdog media ignore this story while chatting up the old Manafort trial. A case which could have been handled by US attorneys, not a Special Counsel.

Marc Lamont Hill gushes over terrorist cop-killer

Temple Prof & CNN Commentator Marc Lamont Hill Touts Cop-Killing Terrorist as ‘Freedom Fighter’

Breitbart | Tom Ciccotta 07-18-2018

Temple University Professor and CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill published a glowing Instagram post this week for cop-killing terrorist Assata Shakur.

 

Temple University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, who is also a CNN commentator, published a bizarre tribute to convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, a member of the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist list, this week. Shakur, a former member of the Black Liberation Army, was convicted of first-degree murder of State Trooper Werner Foerster during a shootout in New Jersey in 1973.

Thinking about Assata Shakur on her 71st birthday. She wrote the second book that changed (and saved) my life. She taught me about the value and power of Freedom Dreams. She showed me the beauty of struggle. And she proved that “a wall is just a wall. and nothing more at all. It can be broken down.” I pray for her continued safety and protection. I continue to work to demonstrate her innocence. And I implore the State to stop prosecuting an unjust and unfair campaign against one of our most treasured Freedom Fighters. Thank you Mama Assata. Wishing you 100 more years!

Shakur has lived in Cuba since 1984, despite multiple attempts by the US government to bring her back.

Marc Lamont Hill is a Professor of Media Studies and Urban Education at Temple University. He has worked in media with BET News and CNN. In 2016, Marc Lamont Hill expressed support for the Green Party, adding that he would prefer a Donald Trump presidency to a Hillary Clinton one so that the left could build a “real” movement.

“I would rather have Trump be president for four years and build a real left-wing movement that can get us what we deserve as a people, than to let Hillary be president and we stay locked in the same space where we don’t get what we want,” he said.

https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/07/18/temple-prof-cnn-commentator-marc-lamont-hill-touts-cop-killing-terrorist-as-freedom-fighter/

He drew so much inspiration from this cop-killer. Yeah, hard to romanticize cop-killers. Freedom Fighters? They are eating on the wrong side of the mushroom again.

Screw his position about Trump, just watch all the Lefties come out of the sewer to defend this. Judging by his following and number of likes, he is not alone. He has lots of company.

According to one of his hashtags, he seems to think of her as a political prisoner. Talking about her birthday is so touching. Hill said “She showed me the beauty of struggle.” There’s that wrong side of the mushroom thing again.

Subversion Of Justice

You guessed it, on the very day that Congress had to take action to try to get compliance while they had Rosenstein and Wray testifying, what did Nancy Pelosi do?

She took to the floor, on the House action vote, pleading to Rosenstein and Wray not to comply or cooperate with document requests which made the House subpoena necessary.

Then later in the hearing Rosentein referred to questions about the legality of the subpoena. He opened the door to noncompliance on that and other reasons.

The latest episode of the government defying the American people.

Wray, for his part, reiterated his claims of all the good the FBI does. He said nothing in the IG report, or Horowitz’s testimony, questioned the integrity of the institution of the FBI. How can this elaborate plot and rampant bias of a cabal from the 7th floor headquarters of the FBI not impugn the integrity of the institution? It does. Congress did not do that.

These top officials in the FBI were willing to risk the entire credibility of the institution, with their own, to do what they did. They didn’t care. Now they act as if all that didn’t happen. Instead they blamed Congress for its chase of documents.

Think about it, these career people put the whole institution on the line and they knew it. That’s abuse of power. Plus there has still been no accountability — except Comey and dufus McCabe getting fired. Yet the plot they started continues, by Rosenstein implying there might even be questions about the validity of the subpoena.

Another glimpse of how Rosenstein thinks:”ignore the tyranny of the news cycle,” he said. So officials use the very process, procedures of our top institution to obstruct and subvert Congressional oversight, and then complain about the news cycle. The news is tyrannical? It all happened within DOJ… now tell us about tyranny!

Brennan Spells Sedition

In one of his latest rants in the op-ed pages, John Brennan laid out his reasons for opposing Trump so venomously. Or he thought he did, for anyone willing to buy his crazy BS.

Vice President Joe Biden swears in CIA Director John Brennan in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on 8 March 2013. Members of Brennan’s family stand with him. Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the United States Constitution, dating from 1787, which has George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it. (Wiki pd)

Here are a few excerpts from Wa Po:

“Presidents throughout the years have differed in their approaches to policy, based on political platforms, ideologies and individual beliefs. Mr. Trump, however, has shown highly abnormal behavior by lying routinely to the American people without compunction, intentionally fueling divisions in our country and actively working to degrade the imperfect but critical institutions that serve us.”

“His disparagement of institutions is designed to short-circuit legitimate law enforcement investigations, intelligence assessments and media challenges that threaten his interests. His fear of the special counsel’s work is especially palpable, as is his growing interest in destroying its mandate.”

Interesting that a man who claims to want to protect institutions or norms in America so much is the very key culprit in undermining them in 2016-17 — throughout the campaign. The institution of the press, like others, was being corrupted and spoon-fed their own corrosive toxin, which undermined any objective truth in media journalism.

But that guy, John Brennan, is worried about Trump damaging the integrity and credibility of institutions? While he now is fully engaged in sedition, Brennan was even undermining the sacred election process he claimed to be concerned with.

The reason Brennan chimes in on just this topic of institutions was to follow Obama’s twisted and treasonous lead. Obama often rails about protecting sacred institutions from the damage Trump is doing to them. The same institutions that were co-opted in an elaborate Trump opposition and are now incorporated in the resistance. The same institutions that contribute to the Deep State resistance.

Obama wrote in his famous White House exit letter:

“That makes us guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions — like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties — that our forebears fought and bled for. Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it’s up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them.” – [Obama’s exit letter.]

Sounds a lot like the same crutch of criticism Brennan is now using toward Trump.

So Brennan carefully wove a Trump diatribe criticizing his damage to sacred institutions of integrity. Of which we know the FBI, CIA, DOJ and entire intelligence apparatus were a significant concern, along with those who ran them under Obama’s politicized and weaponized government.

Good thing that old reliable arm of the press has given another glimpse into what happened in the 2016 election and ever since.

Are NBC and CNN Paying Off Top Spies Who Leaked Info With On-Air Jobs?

Tablet Magazine

“The first reason, popular on both the left and among the Never Trump coterie on the right, is the assertion that Trump is a dangerous fascist who is on the verge of overthrowing the rule of law in America, an emergency that, if real, might indeed call for extreme measures, like throwing the principles of evidence-based reporting out the window. The problem with this argument being that however obvious and galling the man’s flaws are, no evidence for the thesis that Donald Trump intends to do away with Congress and the courts and rule by his own Trumpian fiat exists, at least not on planet earth. The assertion that such evidence does exist is the province of lunatics, and of people who find it useful to goose them on social media, or take their money.”

“The second reason for the departures from legal, institutional, and procedural norms that propagating a conspiracy theory requires is far more troubling. The lies and misinformation spoon-fed to the press by former high intelligence officials, who are now cashing paychecks from the same news outlets that they partnered with, are part of an ongoing campaign which, if successful, will protect those ex-spy chiefs from the legal consequences of their own law-breaking while in office.”

Chew on that John Brennan. It is hard to ignore countless dark operatives who have migrated from Deep State jobs into the mainstream media. Only last week, Ben Rhodes went over to NBC, as if that was any surprise. Brennan himself got an NBC deal.

“For example, the House Intelligence Committee report found that James Clapper “flatly denied ‘discussing[ing] the dossier [compiled by Steele] or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists.’ ” Yet while Clapper may now find himself in trouble for lying to Congress—which he has done before on extremely consequential subjects, like the extent of America’s domestic spying programs, apparently without damaging his credibility as a “news source”—he has carved a new job out of a possible crime. In August 2017, CNN hired him as an analyst, creating the appearance, at least, that the network is now paying him for the information he leaked to them. At the same time, it provides him with a platform to run an offense shielding him from the legal consequences of his actions. Presumably, Clapper will continue to justify his actions as a public official on-air while denying any wrong-doing, and his “analysis” will be presented to viewers as impartial and truthful.”

Also being part of the media organ now shields them of accountability for their covert actions. Remember that leakers are being hunted while reporters who publish it are considered immune. CNN scooped up Josh Campbell, the former assistant to James Comey who bailed out saying he had to leave FBI to speak out in the public square — to protect the institution — also penned a diatribe against Comey’s firing.

These insider additions could be the new avenues for the Deep State ops and holdovers to leak, creating a network for Deep State (and institutions) to channel their latest wares.

“It’s hard to imagine anything worse for a democracy than journalists coordinating with political operatives and spies who are paid by the press to leak information about American citizens. But that’s where we are. We have hit rock-bottom.” [see article]

Slow walking the IG report

So now we know why. As if there was any doubt.

SARA CARTER: Lawmakers Warn IG is Being Pressured to Slow Walk and REDACT SIGNIFICANT PORTIONS of Much-Anticipated Report

by Cristina Laila June 5, 2018 | Gateway Pundit

Lawmakers warned Tuesday the Inspector General is being pressured to slow walk and redact significant portions of his much-anticipated report on the FBI’s (mis)handling of the Clinton investigation.

According to investigative reporter, Sara Carter, the DOJ and the FBI are deliberately attempting to slow roll and redact significant portions of IG Horowitz’s report on the bureau’s (mis)handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

We knew this was happening; the President even tweeted about this very thing Tuesday morning.

Sara Carter reported:

The Department of Justice and the FBI are deliberately attempting to slow roll and redact significant portions of DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz’s report on the bureau’s handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation, according to numerous congressional officials and investigators.

[…]

Another congressional official, who’s been fighting to obtain documents from the DOJ and FBI, said it is no surprise that they are putting pressure on Horowitz. According to the official, “They continue to slow roll documents, fail to adhere to congressional oversight and concern is growing that they will wait until summer and then turn over documents that are heavily redacted.”

Inspector General Michael Horowitz informed lawmakers three weeks ago on Capitol Hill his much-anticipated 400 page report on the FBI’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation entered the final stages.

And it is probably not the last delay. When does it end? Will we get any truth?
