Coming To Terms

I am trying to come to terms with some terms.

Actionable intelligence — what does that mean to Dems? We may never know.

Imagine not killing a terrorist because you may get attacked with terrorism.

That’s all, just trying to come to grips with those concepts.

I’m serious.

BTW: and would someone ask NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio what that pizza would cost if Democrat Socialists came to power? I bet 30 bucks would look like a steal.

Intelligence Flip Flops

Trump was blamed for 3 years for not listening to intelligence. Now he responds to a real threat based on actionable intelligence and the Left goes berserk. In fact CNN’s byline now is question our intelligence first. Qassem Soleimani was killed in a Reaper Drone strike.

Indeed, all Democrats say they want to see the evidence and intelligence the president used in making the decision. They also dismissed killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

It turns out that there are suddenly a lot of arguments that can be made for not following our intelligence. Shall we say for NOT acting in real time to take out a major terrorist actor in the midst of rolling out attacks against the US.

Who thought that was possible?

It turns out there is so much to question about intelligence, much less what to do with it. I only wish everyone had the same interest in protecting US interests and in our national security. Wouldn’t that be nice? But they don’t; and let’s not deceive ourselves.

Our basic argument against Obama on Benghazi is that he didn’t do anything. In fact he did the opposite. He stood down any response to the attack. He should have had to explain it but he never did. Actually the whole thing was a cover up and lies by Susan Rice.

Incidentally, in the aftermath of the Qassem Soleimani strike, who was the top analyst CNN brought on to talk about it? Susan Rice. In a rational world of media coverage that would be irrational. And it would have no credibility.

Whom did CNN bring on next to talk about retaliation threats from Iran against the US? That would be FBI’s discredited former General Counsel, James Baker and Dep Director Andrew McCabe. Later, James Clapper rounded out their coverage of the experts.

Democrats are blinded by politics and their hatred for Trump. Those same people who never answered for the failures in Benghazi. Never mind that attacking our embassy is an act of war. They can ignore that.

How long till the left throws intelligence under the bus? But what a shame that Benghazi didn’t even merit a whisper campaign. That denial went on for years — same people.

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.

Right-Wrong Track, Impeachment Zone

Are people tuning out? Well, that would be my guess. I’m no expert on the subject but it seems disinterest is setting in. Impeachment fever has struck in Washington and stuck there. That’s all they care about now.

The rest of us have bigger concerns. We haven’t succumbed to the fever.

Meanwhile, Rasmussen’s daily approval poll is at 51% for President Trump. Good.

However, Rasmussen’s right track wrong track poll says only 37% of likely voters think the country is headed in the right direction. Looks like Dems, the Left and leftard media have taken us down from 42% in September 16th, who thought the country was heading in the right direction. But it was flirting with 35% in recent weeks.

I guess it shouldn’t take a brain scientist to see what is happening, but it is still confusing. What the hell do people expect when the president is enduring impeachment in Congress? Or, just maybe this impeachment sickness is what is taking the number down?

Whatever you think the reason is, I think it deserves to be much higher.

After all, the same poll had Obama in the mid to high 20’s during 2016. And that bid well for revolt territory. Are we not better than 10 points above that Obama hell?

Voters beware, someone is sucking the life blood out of this country. And it ain’t Trump.

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.

Ukraine On The Brain

One thing that American people should be outraged about is any idea that the success of the current US president – indeed future of the US – should be determined by Ukraine. Not to mention our election of a president and the next one.

But this is the exact situation the Democrats have put America in. Ukraine is now at the center of all that. We should be appalled but many people are cheering this on.

We just annexed the future of America to a former satellite country of the USSR. One that has had its share of corruption and is engaged in its own sovereign preservation. Something Trump wanted to look into.

But back in 2016, radical Democrats put Ukraine smack into the center of their conspiracy theory (coup in the making) by DNC’s and Democrat operatives’ collusion with it in US election politics. Ever since they have been covering for that fact. Now they have brought Ukraine straightforward into their current goal of trying to impeach the POTUS.

I can’t believe this is anything the people would care about, with regard to choosing our president, except for remote hopes of working with Ukraine to eliminate corruption. But that corruption in Ukraine is where Americans’ concern stops.

It is hard for me to believe that people want Ulraine to determine our present president or our future one. That would seem absurd. But apparently that is the road Democrats are going down and what they believe. Their whole impeachment now rests on a corrupt country waging a battle to protect itself from Russia’s covetous hand.

If Democrats do not want foreign meddling or interference in our elections, they sure have a real funny way of showing it. If successful, it is hard to imagine there will not be some heavy consequences for that. Imagine the people who were obsessed for two and and a half years with a myth of foreign influence in our elections, now are determined to once again inject foreign interference into our politics.

Do Americans fall for such a cheap plot? I don’t believe so. But radicalized Democrats are determined and invested in making that case for it.

Then they put an acting ambassador to that country at the center of their “resistance” case. So while Ukraine is resisting Russia’s military overtures, Democrats put that whole issue into the center of their seditious resistance against a sitting US president – even in congress. And they are etching Ukraine into US history by doing so. They have entered Ukraine into the congressional record in one of the most serious things congress can undertake in America, the impeachment of a president.

But make no mistake; they had put Ukraine in the center of election politics since the 2016 election. They continue to build on that plot right into their current seditious coup mission.

Ghosts, Ghouls And Government

Ghosts, Ghouls And Everything Scary

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

About those protections.

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

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

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

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

Theatrics and Drama

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I Wonder….

I am featuring a new segment on this provocative blog. It will be called “I wonder.” I may probe some of the strangest questions of current politics and culture.

In this first installment, I wonder… how Democrats can run on a platform against high healthcare costs? When Dems have run on healthcare over ten years, yet these costs are the direct result of their policies and actions.

Healthcare premiums and deductibles of have exploded, exponentially, while Dems claimed they were fixing healthcare. And how’d that work out for you?

Now Dems want people to support and vote for them based on those high healthcare costs.

I’m still wondering… and they are still wandering.

Media’s Sellout, Tale of the Toll

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Susan Rice Steps In It

Let me rephrase that: Susan Rice has become a victim of Obama Leftology

(I should define Leftology as the radical politics rampant today, most exemplified by Obama’s anti-American rhetoric.)

A few weeks ago, former National Security Advisor and Ambassador under Obama, Susan Rice, had a rival exchange on Twitter with a Chinese diplomat. It proved revealing.

It showed how the Chinese argue and critique America with the same rhetoric they see in leftsrtream press and media in the US. We have long been saying Leftists only provide fodder to America’s critics and enemies.

He (Diplomat-apologist-defender of China, Lijian Zhao) tried to unload that rhetorical hubris at Susan Rice. She seemed baffled by it, but I don’t know why she would be?

That is how leftists themselves argue. Racist accusations – should we say pleasantries – were exchanged between them. Then Rice dropped the line that ‘he should be sent back’ or recalled to China. What Rice didn’t know is he was not based in DC but in Pakistan.

That doesn’t really matter for the purposes of argument. Rice was stirred. She was trying to talk about humanitarian woes of Musllim Uighurs held in northern China. He rattled off a list of conditions in US, including DC. His tweets have since been deleted.

My guess is she didn’t realize that all this division, escalated under Obama, and constant liberal media, just fed his nasty response on our country. They are only taking the press’s critique and hurling it back at America. She should have been better prepared for that.

Rice shifted, after calling him a racist, to address the Chinese Ambassador: “I expect better of you and your team. Please do the right thing and send him home.”

But it did demonstrate Rice’s abilities and reactionary Leftist rhetoric.
She is out hawking a new book. And as Forbes said regarding social media:

Tangent: Although Twitter, like other Western social media platforms, is banned in China, diplomats use the platform abroad and have amassed some large followings as a result. Zhao, for example, gained over 190,000 followers over the three years he’s had a Twitter account.

See: https://thehill.com/policy/international/453098-susan-rice-chinese-diplomat-a-racist-disgrace
And: https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2019/07/15/ex-national-security-adviser-rice-calls-chinese-diplomat-racist-for-tirade/#4397ecc45dbe

Besides Rice and race, China is a much larger concern for discussion. Certainly much broader and more important than the Uighurs issue. But that’s all Leftinista’s care about.

It spans Hong Kong, the China Sea and Taiwan, as well as all the economic disparities. Though Rice touches none of that, probably as a matter of choice. Obama’s administration didn’t touch the major issues with China in eight years. Why would she start now?

After all, Obama gave us the national policy of Omission (among others). He ignored the biggest and most dangerous threats to America, while placating his apologist base of anti-American zealots — both political and religious.

Instead, he lent his voice to give aid and comfort to enemies of America. That it now comes full circle in Susan Rice’s tweets is ironic. Rice and Obama demonstrated incompetence in government for eight years, now she illustrates it on Twitter just in case we forgot!

Memorable Lines

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nationalism vs. Socialism

I believe we have an ultimate grudge-match framed in the coming election. It boils down to terms more than narrative. The lefts’ narratives are amusing but the terms are deadly.

The terms are simple. Nationalism vs, Socialism. What could be a greater feud than that?

While some people may assert that you can have nationalism with socialism, it is a distorted illusion. Their kind of socialism will have no part in nationalism. It is their enemy. After all, nationalism is what they rail against and what drives the left.

Except when Obama was president, then they had a faux nationalism. It was really socialism disguised as fake nationalism. But it was as phony as a three dollar bill. They only used it to sell their socialism. Because at least then socialism was not out of the closet. They had to pretend socialism was not what they wanted. They created a sense of nationalism.

Now, any pretense is long gone about not wanting socialism. It is all the rage, socialists are kool. Bernie just ushered in the left’s real passion, Democrats want socialism. And when do they want it? Now. Bernie is the Pied Piper of Socialism.

To a person, every one of the Democrat candidates did follow him. They all compete for who can be a pure socialist. They realize there is no better way to buy votes than promising free stuff. And no better way to bring down America than giving free stuff to everyone, even illegals. It breaks your will and breaks the government’s budget.

The Left has apparently decided something else they now like almost as much. Executive power and executive orders. That is what it will take to enact most of their pipe dreams.

You know the rule of the left: never let democracy get in the way of socialism schemes. If people don’t like it, then find a way around them. If it can’t pass in law, then find a way using fiat law. Or find a judge to enact exactly what you want. Create such a struggle between branches or the people that they cannot say no. Make it seem inevitable.

But nationalism, there really is nothing conspiratorial about that. And you cannot fool the people about what is real nationalism. They know the difference.

By the way, Happy Fourth of July!

A Note To Dems’ Script Writers

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

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

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

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

She engaged in criminal conduct from the onset.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

https://dailycaller.com/2016/10/24/leaked-obama-team-kept-list-of-muslims-for-top-jobs-excluded-non-muslims/

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

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

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

Any questions? All right then!

Secret Records: goose chase = goose egg

I saw this article that gave me an immediate visceral reaction. But take note of the date, in 2017. Maybe context only tells half the story though. That secrecy endures.

Obama admin spent $36M on lawsuits to keep info secret

March 14, 2017

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration in its final year in office spent a record $36.2 million on legal costs defending its refusal to turn over federal records under the Freedom of Information Act, according to an Associated Press analysis of new U.S. data that also showed poor performance in other categories measuring transparency in government.

For a second consecutive year, the Obama administration set a record for times federal employees told citizens, journalists and others that despite searching they couldn’t find a single page of files that were requested.

And it set records for outright denial of access to files, refusing to quickly consider requests described as especially newsworthy, and forcing people to pay for records who had asked the government to waive search and copy fees. [more….]

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/obama-administration-spent-36m-on-records-lawsuits-last-year/

CBS of all media reported that. But then it was just rubbing our noses in it after the fact. So maybe it’s not reporting a negative if Obama is proud of his success at it.

Shocking, as I promise I am wearing my best Casablanca face. Of course it was reported after Obama’s presidency was over. And this was only one year. It didn’t take into account even all the other personal records Obama concealed, sealed, or obfuscated. Or all the times those who sued for records were smacked down by judges for not having standing or some such excuse. These were government FOIA requests for the year. Our money.

It almost appears Obama was shutting down any access to information. Hiding something. Why it seems non-transparent, but that can’t be because he told us he was transparent in everything. Then you contrast that with what they do to Trump. Basically they act as if every record related to Trump must be accessible to them, by default, and there can be no denials. It’s the worst double standard I can think of.

Then there was this, again some time back, from Tom Fitton about Hillary Clinton.

Now that is a nice stand on privacy protections, isn’t it? Wile Trump is not afforded any privacy protection. In fact, they can demand anything from Trump and apparently he has to provide it — as fuel for their witch-hunt. Isn’t that the way it works for Trump?

In the video (from above) Fitton talks about Hillary belonging to the protected class.

What’s Going On: Truth Boomerangs

Almost any plot even close to the size of this Russia conglomerate thing requires stooges to propel it and keep it alive. Lots of them, the more the better.

But that’s no problem for the hoodlums of revision. The left has plenty of those and it doesn’t have to rent them; they are available for free. They’re happy to lend their voices.

That is the best kind of willing dupes, who will carry the message far and wide. The truth is no match for them. Now we have the Resistance — Resisting democracy, our elections.

Or in Hillary’s words, campaigning:

To say you won’t respect the results of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy,” Clinton told a rally at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. “The peaceful transfer of power is one of the things that makes America America.

And look, some people are sore losers, and we just got to keep going, she added. [CNBC]

Remember that 2 weeks out from the 2016 election, in October, the State of the Nation project gave Hillary a 95% chance of winning. Thus, Hillary lectured on election results.

At the third debate, 20 days from the election:

(WaPo) Clinton labeled Trump as Putin’s “puppet” — prompting Trump to snap back, “You’re the puppet!” — while Trump charged that Putin had “outsmarted and outplayed” her when she was secretary of state.

Words that are eerily surreal now, with what we know. That “greatness” is waning.

Peaceful Transfer

But, in fact, she had been at peace with Trump at no time during the campaign, even as an opponent. No, she was virtually at war with him, busying herself with framing up some fraudulent conspiracy of Russia and Trump colluding against her. Now, actually, doesn’t that sound more like some delusional paranoia — whether she was a candidate or not?

I’m surprised Hillary didn’t think Obama was conspiring, too, against her because he said in the Oval Office that no one can rig our elections. Oops, that stole her future thunder.

On the heels of her getting “cleared” by Comey, she commenced a scandal of unspeakable proportions connecting Trump to the Russia meddling campaign. Right, when she was bitching against Donald for not being willing to accept the elction results, she was already neck deep in creating a conspiracy plot against him and erecting an insurance policy in the event of a Trump victory. So as she stood on that stage, and ridiculed Trump, she was well aware they had created this fraudulent collusion theory, intermingling Trump with the Russia meddling. But that in fact they had all gone to great lengths to do that while even Deep State had spied on him. She knew that too, while standing there.

Yet only a few months before that she was waist deep in her own email cabal entailing four years that had many legs since. Then the faux investigation that had taken place with the explicit purpose of clearing her of any wrongdoing. Yes, to stand right there and be aware of all that while charging Trump for merely questioning the election process or being skeptical about the end results. (how close to the head of the nail was he?)

In retrospect, who was right about all of it? Who was wrong? Who lied all the way through it? Who had invested in every underhanded, illegal thing one could do to defeat the other — with the added complicit help of all the intelligence and a sitting president to do it?

That all should bother us now. It should make Hillary look even sillier now. Yet they still try to keep this charade of Russia collusion alive, and/or that there was some “obstruction of justice” by Trump in this fraud investigation perpetrated on him. That they could keep this phony charade up for over 3 years, having all levels of our government cooperating in it. Folks, this is a high water mark for as bad as government could get. I can think of nothing worse than this happening. But still it goes on.

Most of the reason it does continue is because of the many willing dupes who have all carried it this far. And because of MS media who desperately and intentionally propelled it. Of course this is the greatest scandal that ever occurred in our Republic, all at the willing hands of the sinister players. Let’s hope that record is never broken.

The Deniers of Democracy are still out there willfully denying results of the election, in a perpetual state of Resistance. It is a travesty of justice too. As Hillary and her accomplices have done everything to avert and obstruct justice all along, no one stopped them.

But the willing dupes are still out there. They are on social media, they are delivering the fake news reports. Even some of the corruption culprits who committed these high crimes are now employed as analysts in media. Clapper and Brennan give their opinions. Comey and his cohort McCabe are out insulting the intelligence of the public by telling their lies, defending their treanous acts and engaging now in sedition against the administration.

And Hillary, well she’s still out there, doing what she does, lying and trying to cover her multi-staged scandals against America. But she continues to have help, willing dupes who care nothing about the truth, or “What Happened.” Instead, Hillary lectures others that:

“You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.”

Bombshell Report Due

Speaking of two weeks, we are getting pretty near.

‘Bombshell’ report on James Comey coming in two weeks, Joe diGenova says

by Daniel Chaitin | April 25, 2019 —Washington Examiner

A “bombshell” report on former FBI Director James Comey is coming out in two weeks, attorney Joe diGenova said on Wednesday.

He made the declaration during a Fox News panel discussion on alleged government surveillance abuse.

“The Horowitz report is coming out in May or possibly early June,” Joe diGenova, a former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, said. He was referring to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act investigation.

“There’s another report that everyone has forgotten about involving James Comey alone,” diGenova said. “That will be out in two weeks. That report is going to be a bombshell. It is going to open up the investigation on a very high note, and there are going to be criminal referrals in it.”

He did not elaborate on what report he expects out in two weeks and how he came to find out about the timeline for its release.

U.S. Attorney John Huber is conducting an investigation into FBI misconduct.

What that report is, I won’t speculate. The talk about Huber reminds me he is one leftover of Sessions. I hope it is not going to disappoint too. I don’t know. I can’t help wondering that until we see something from him.

But it does seem like Comey and Brennan are increasingly worried. Dems won’t be happy to hear anything but their narrative. Who knows about the timeline?

I Beg Your Pardon

Wouldn’t it be amazing if all these snakes in the Circus of Corruption came back around to asking for a pardon from Trump? Wouldn’t that be special? It would be ironic.

Imagine Comey and McCabe making the case for a pardon?

In fact, that is probably what Democrats would have planned if they won the White House. It would be Pardongate. They could issue them like candy.

All the people who took part in the coup and sedition would be on a list. Democrats could add it to their campaign platform. The convention would not be complete without turning them into heroes.

Of course if they did win, their first order of business would be going after the Trump administration and everyone connected to it. No doubt about that.

I guess that is our choice in 2020, to continue Democrats’ abortion of justice or not.

Nadler the Fascist

Reagan had it right when he said “it is just that they know so much that is not so.” They are invested in lies. Leftists believe that if you force a negative (untruth) long and hard enough it will become a positive (a truth or reality).

Mark Penn on Fox:
Trump is not a dictator, Nadler is. Our political system is being weaponized against itself

After Attorney General Bill Barr did not show up for his hearing on Thursday because Nadler wanted to question the A.G. in a manner reserved for inquests and investigations, Nadler then called the president a “dictator.”

I understand that Nadler is upset about the refusal of the A.G. to participate in some kind of show trial he was arranging after 5 hours of Barr’s testimony before the Senate, but to the extent anyone is acting like a dictator here it’s unfortunately Nadler. He has lost all perspective. [More]

Anyone asking why should realize it is by design. Not that Nadler believes so strongly in what he is doing, almost the opposite. He is so fearful of what is about to be exposed. That drives the partisan hack to do almost anything he can think up to prevent truth from being exposed. He doesn’t act out of dumbness.

Because if all this dialogue and outrage were directed toward the rightful cause, it would go back to his dear friends the Clintons and the Obama administration. He knows. Nadler is not merely covering for rogue elements or even Deep State itself. His mission is a deflection campaign against the truth. No wonder he’s so nasty.

So at that very point, he becomes an enemy of the Republic, an enemy to the institution he is a member of, and dishonors his oath of office all at once.

Coincidence In Corruption Swamp

Some of you are not going to believe me but I, yes I, really love all this modern technology. Especially the high speed stuff. I mean it is about all I can ask for and handle.

Still I drudge on, as best a bullfrog can, abreast of it all. (Satire)

Take today for instance. I had to resort to the big Bull machine. It’s reserved for only the biggest jobs. It was shaping up to be a number ten day for it. This morning when I saw there was a particularly heavy cloud of crap hanging low, I knew it would be a job.

So I went out to the annex pad to fire up the beast. It hadn’t run in a while and needed priming but she fired right up. I cranked her up to about full throttle. It was sure going to be a workout for the girl but it had to be done. I had a task.

I got all my high-techy data ready and started feeding it in small doses. You wouldn’t think I keep that much data around here but it’s just for such emergencies. I had a question that’s been haunting me, going back many months. It stumped me.

With all this BS that’s floating though the air since President Trump took office, I was looking for one specific common denominator in it all, if there was such a thing. You know, the media can pump it out thick and heavy 24/7. After a few hours of hardly being able to see in front of me, suddenly it started to clear little by little. Was there some common denominator to all these huge problems, and then what in the hell was it?

Well, I got up to full speed and then dumped the algorithm detector in the hopper to process the junk. Within a few hours, some good news. It spit out an answer. Just one.

Guess what? I found the common root all right. Seemed like a huge coincidence at first. It was none other than Hillary Clinton. Should have figured. Well, you know analytics don’t lie. Bessy Bull is always right. I cross-checked my data and no doubt about it, the common thread is Hillary. She’s in everything like DNA.

Funny part was, back there in July 2016, she was pretty thick in investigation and chaos. She had all that scandal stuff oozing from her pores. Then that fire cracker James Comey up and announced she is cleared on all that. If you could’ve seen my OJ face. Stuff dating back to 2009 when she set up that stinking server. Like they were in a big hurry.

So all her aids and everyone, nothing! They are still looking for some of the data and emails MIA out there. Whew-hoo what a mess that was. She got through even after Bubba Bill had a meeting on the tarmac with Loretta Lynch. Anthony Weiner did a side show. But she got the green light after July 4th for herself and her campaign.

Now here is the strangest part. After going through all that – and all those denials through the media about it for years – she turned around and did the weirdest thing imaginable. She swung from that messy ordeal right into creating an even bigger scandal, if that was possible. She was probably working on it even before she got off the first. On the heels of almost going down for it, she busted ground on another new whopper. It would dwarf even her last one. It was huge, for all the marbles. She even used the same contacts.

On this one, she sucked the DNC into it, hired lawyers for front men to do her dirtier work, then they contracted with Fusion GPS, who pulled Steele into it. Man, can she create a scandal? She might have sucked the whole Obama administration into the vortex. Now I’m not saying Obamafiles didn’t already have a head start, and their very own scandal brewing before that. But they joined up forces for this giant “Crossfire Hurricane.”

Sort of makes some sense in a real sinister way. But no Kansas, no Toto, no Dorothy.

I’ll tell you the truth, I never saw a storm cooked up like that before. Then it just got worse as time went on. But oh, it was Hillary that was in the nucleus of the whole thing. Her money, her people, her contacts and agenda. It became her baby even if it was Obama’s illegitimate child too. The whole thing was crazy and got crazier when the FISA requests flew and surveillance went all over — from NY to London to Moscow and to Australia and Spain. And back to Washington. Then came the dirty dossier that got peddled about all over. Even John McCain had his hands on that rag. Well, whatever they were cooking up was big; man was it big. They pulled everyone in intelligence into it and then media seemed like a willing accomplice. You know the wink and nod thing in the swamp.

Only months before all that, Hillary had been down in the bog herself, mired in corruption and pay to play influence. Who knew what else laid under it all? That was then.

When Trump took office, it continued hot and heavy. That crooked Comey just had to get fired for misbehaving all over the place. The swamp didn’t like that. Maybe it was the cord that let loose the whole unraveling when it came out. His deputy, then all these big shots in FBI were caught doing the same influence maneuvers they were supposed to be investigating. Comey squealed for a Special Counsel and swamp-masters appointed one.

The IG was sniffing around by then, too, and exposed some of the Deep State operators. But there was more, even more than he could handle. So Horowitz had to crank up another investigation just to satisfy the swampwatchers, gaining in number. The stench was awful.

This has all gone on like autopilot getting swampier as time went on. The AG was forbidden from touching it. It’s like it had a mind of it’s own and nothing could stop it. It only got bigger by nature. Democrats in Congress backed up the Deep State, whatever they said. Rumors flew and all they talked about was “Russia collusion.” It was everywhere.

But sure enough, in the background that no one wanted to talk about, how it all got started, was that Chardonnay-guzzling Hillary Clinton, smack in the middle of it all. But quiet as a mouse. Until even she started yapping about her still lost election and the big investigation. Yep that’s a good one, when you can start the whole thing then jump in to complain about it. She traveled around hawking a book “What Happened?” giving her opinions on everything. She fired off op-eds to make her finer points. She was all over the world, licking her wounds in public, while it was Trump who was suffering from constant attacks. Names and accusations flew like treason or agent of Russia. But not at Clintons, who had all the swampy traitorous connections. No one cared about all that or what they had done.

Pond and swamp-watchers like me sat there seeing all this stuff. No one paid attention to the source of it all or the real villains in the swamp. The common denominator was ignored. No, instead all those Leeches were out selling books, doing roadshows. Actually, Comey, McCabe, Hillary, Obama, all had big paydays as the swamp oozed on, claiming more and more turf. On top of it all, the whole lot of them sat back criticizing Trump about it all like Brennan, Clapper, Rhodes, and Hayden. That’s a nice band of dubious hecklers.

Then came hearings about it, but no one wanted to talk about the start of it all. No one talked about common-thread Hillary or the grand wizard, godfather Obama. In fact, we were all told she is irrelevant. She lost and she’s not president, so none of it matters. Except it is all here now, thanks to Hillary Clinton, Obama and their henchmen in tow.

As it seems to continue on and on, Hillary’s big thumbprints are still all over everything. When do we face this mutant DNA gene, responsible for so much corruption, and her sinister allies in the dark arts? Even chaos has limits. Folks can’t make this stuff up. And Hillary is right there in the middle of it all — living large on the swamp gas.
