Borderless Democrats At Your Service

Once again, it is time for one of those rantoramas. At times one cannot control the frustration or disdain even to write a persuasive piece. So instead, I get to say just what I think. And someone really wants us to feel helpless about our circumstances.

I am so sick and tired of this issue of illegal invasion. It has been on the stove for now thirteen plus years. That means it is under the third different administration. Words may escape me in how wrong this all is. At least I know I am not alone in my frustration.

Another thing has become crystal clear. That is if we the people, I mean the sane ones, all know what should be done to stem this problem, then why can’t our illustrious Reps and Senators in Washington do it. I mean this is what we pay them and elect them for, to handle the business of the country. Why is that so difficult for them to do? Back up, their job is not to just tell us what we cannot do or shouldn’t. And many of them are the ones who broke the system in the first and second place.

Excuse me, I must concentrate on these lily liberal, progressive dirtbags here. Yes, I have had it up to my neck too with people saying but it is both sides that are culpable. Stop with that, we know where the real problems come from. Sure there are a few stragglers in the Republican ranks with their own selfish agendas. I’ve talked about that before. But can we finally admit and concentrate on the real problem here?

We may have questioned progressives’ agenda before and called them this or that. We may have even called them UN-American. Now they have upped that in case we missed it.They are plainly Anti-American now. Yes, they have destruction of America as we know it in their sights. Yes, they realize it. And never have they been closer to that goal than at this moment in history, to carry out the demise of our Republic and they are firing from all points. We actually do have a civil war raging on in the country, just by other means, only we aren’t calling it that. These perennial post-American pols antagonize it.

There can be no doubt now about their goal. They’ve told us as much and admitted it. They don’t bother trying to hide or deny it anymore. And that replacement of our entire system is the vehicle by which they will carry out their plans. It was all set up by Obama. We knew it at the time. But all our complaints for eight years that they tried like hell to deny are all being validated in spades. Now it is more like if you like your country you cannot keep your country. It’s called screw America 101.

There are dirtbags and detours every where you look. I like metaphors as much as the next guy to really drive a point home but in this case we don’t need metaphors anymore. Reality is quite bad enough. No, we are not going to play Democrats’ other parlor game of ‘blame Trump because he is president now, so it must be his fault!’ That is as bad as the “both sides” nonsense. He is the one constant fighting it.

I am wondering when it is time for amnesty for Americans, well, just because we if anyone deserve it? We are now last on the list of considerations, it is obviously clear. The ruling class has other matters on their minds, frankly, anything other than us. No, you cannot say that about most Republicans. But you can say it about Democrats. They don’t care about us. In fact, it seems like we are being penalized while everyone else is being rewarded or promoted. Is that their real dream? That seems to be part of their grand justice platform.

And don’t even start me with their social justice bullshit. It’s not social and it sure isn’t justice they want. It is revenge and selective retribution and redistribution they want.

Our priorities are at the very bottom of their list, from securing the border to having a fair justice system, to having respect for law and order. Nope, those things are the antithesis to what they want. So we lose, too bad. The least one needs to do is acknowledge who his/her real enemies are. And they are right there. In fact, they are in our faces almost everyday running to their media appearances and making their declarations from on high. Or they are in hearing rooms representing their own selfish interests, in front of cameras rubbing it in our faces. There is a certain honesty about it all, at least we know they don’t care. And they are proud of it. We are back where we were in 2010, but even worse off.

They will trot out to the campaign trail because they have decided that the only thing of utmost importance is elections. So many of the Reps and Senators are running now, They are part timers. Their real gig is just running for office, sort of like Hillary’s always was. The job itself? They get to decide that, too, not the Constitution or rules. But we are last on their long list of self-serving priorities. Illegal aliens, even those on their way here, somehow get top billing on their considerations. Come one come all.

They’ve given up, long ago, on the idea that they stand up for the working guy. He’s at the bottom of their list, too. Actually, he is much the problem because he is inconvenient to all their other pipe dreams of a Green Economy and a workless society. One where government is in control of everything… and yet responsible for nothing at the same time. They say they are not interested in corporate businesses but they are. Boy are they. They are in their pockets and have their hand out in front of them. It is like old Jesse Jackson’s routine of a shakedown city. Corporate greed is only the means to grease their palms and fleece their campaign coffers. You are an enemy to the state unless you prove otherwise.

The fact that all of this is so blatantly obvious now to us means nothing to them. So it creates contention between us and our representatives. You think they care? They just want to be the permanent ruling class elites. Your value as a pawn in that scheme matters not in the least. They will tell you what is important to them, and they’ll demonstrate it right it front of you. Those principles to you — securing the border, protecting sovereignty, doing the people’s business, honoring an oath of office — are toilet tissue to them.

The next election is all that matters. Always the next election. One thing unimportant during the perpetual campaign cycle, to Democrats, is the will of the people. That is fungible. It is whatever they declare it is. See how the working guy would definitely be at odds with that agenda? These things, common principles, used to be important but that is so 50 years ago. Gone is any illusion of integrity or responsibility.

But I was only getting started.

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?

Media Does It Again: making donuts

The lamestream media has done it once again. Synopsis: media put out an article that they thought was a damning case against Trump but instead vindicated him. But don’t tell.

This really gets to be a tiring exercise always chasing down what media says verses what it really means. Actually nothing is ever what MSM says it means or thinks it means. That alone would be an indictment on journalism, in a normal world. But is it?

Here is the problem, they know what they are doing. The reality can’t condemn their incompetence because they are not. They are just competent at getting things consistently wrong, by intention and design. It is the same proverbial question always raised about Obama. Is he really dumb, naive or just arrogantly inexperienced; or does he know exactly what he is doing? Too many people missed that distinction giving him the benefit of any doubt. (a benefit never awarded to Trump) Incidental verses calculated?

In Obama’s case, he did know. But we were not supposed to be on to him. His first duty was to keep any naivete public illusion alive. In other words, the first goal was to deceive. Hypothetically, he could have really been wistfully unaware each and every time some major scandalous thing happened, where he only read about it in the papers, but then none of the full picture about Obama would fit or make any sense. And it would have been completely wrong, which he desperately wanted and needed us to be. See similarities?

The key is you find out the answer to any questions about radicals’ conduct and motivations for it when they are confronted. You will know by how deeply they dig in to defend or explain it. Then you know how intentionally malicious and subversive it all is and how important to them. Their anger and lengths they go to only confirms their intent.

That is why it is important to keep confronting “progressives” and radicals, to keep pointing out what they are doing. I mean one could stop and say what is the point because they know and I know what they are doing? That is too easy for them. However, I am not under the illusion I am getting somewhere or proving something in pointing out the issues.

It was the same way with Obama, we knew what he was doing and he knew it but it needed to be said. Unfortunately, he was never confronted the way he should be. But enough people did raise questions and he apparently heard those questions, we now know.

I think the real point with these cold, calculated people like Obama or MSM and others is not that they are doing a job but that their real mission is a fine art in deception. They see that as their talent. Objectivity or fairness never has anything to do with it, or very little. Only that illusion matters — and they aren’t too convincing about that.

No wonder they hate the fake news label with everything they have, as it is everything.

Their whole goal is not to tell you something but make you think and believe a certain narrative. So the narrative rules, which coincides with a political agenda. See it is all up to us then, how we perceive them as to how successful they are at their mission. If we believe CNN, NYT or media to be noble and credible sources, they are halfway to their goal. Then you will likely accept what they tell you when they feed you the narrative. So it is very much about telling you what to believe, not informing you. (unless by informing they mean forcing you to believe their narrative.) The rest is downhill.

While it may seem redundant to us to keep pointing out the lies and problems with their narrative it does serve a purpose. It challenges them to explain it and also lets them know that we know. If that basic deception is the first objective their mission and narrative depend on, it puts them back to square one. See they really need people to believe them. If they can’t get people to that they cannot convince them in the (political) narrative.

Think about this, as a tribute to their success, they could convince a good part of the nation into sedition without the people even realizing exactly what they are engaging in. If they are that good to string them along on that, what else can they lead people into?

That is their formula, whether it is on Russia or any of their other favorite pet issues. The left uses the same tactics. Obama’s campaign theme was not so much on “change” but the “believe in” part that made it possible. On reelection he told people just keep believing. So, pay attention not to what you see but what we tell you to see and what you believe.

Meanwhile Press and Media Whine

I’m going to put up this piece from the news association, not because it deserves to be but because it needs to be called out for what it is. I am mean for picking on the press.

RTDNA calls on members to join campaign defending press freedom

August 13, 2018 | RTDNA [*emphasis mine]

The Radio Television Digital News Association and its Voice of the First Amendment Task Force are calling on our more than 1,200 members and their broadcast and digital news outlets to join the Boston Globe and more than 100 other local newspapers across the country on Aug. 16 in a coordinated editorial response to attacks from the President on the media.

“We urge our members to join the effort on Thursday, Aug. 16 by dedicating airtime, publishing an online editorial or sharing information via social media platforms that speaks to your viewers and listeners about the role we play in preserving the public’s right and need to know, in a government for and by the people,” said Dan Shelley, RTDNA’s executive director.

“The President has ratcheted up his anti-press contempt. Journalists are now the ‘disgusting fake news,’ and according to one presidential tweet, we also ‘cause Wars [sic].’ This rhetoric has contributed to many of the president’s supporters lashing out harshly against members of the White House press corps and other journalists. It must stop before more journalists are hurt or worse,” states Shelley.

Today, RTDNA, its members and the other broadcast and digital journalists it represents stand in solidarity with the dozens of American newspapers that have joined the Boston Globe campaign to publish editorials pushing back against the notion that responsible journalism is “fake news” and that journalists are the “enemy of the American people.”

Please contact RTDNA at pressfreedom@rtdna.org if your station plans to participate. For more information on how to explain the public service your news organization regularly provides, please see this list of resources for rebuilding trust with news consumers and this list of questions to consider as a newsroom.

About the Voice of the First Amendment Task Force
RTDNA formed the Voice of the First Amendment Task Force to defend against threats to the First Amendment and news media access, and to bridge the divide between responsible journalists and those who don’t like, or don’t understand, the news media. People wishing to support RTDNA’s efforts may reach out to the task force by emailing pressfreedom@rtdna.org.

Original source

So it is a campaign defending press freedom. Oh goody, a special day for that.

Instead of what they claim, this is a dedicated day to attack Trump, feel free as if they do not already do so daily. So what is the special occasion about this day? That’s what they have done since Trump won.

But my personal issue with this goes much deeper. First of all, when press refers to the First Amendment, they liberally mean “freedom of press.” However, there are other freedoms in the first amendment. Just that to press, this freedom is the only one they really give a damn about. Secondly, it is offensive that they lay claim to the First Amendment as their own. But that is the only part they want people to care about and keep beating us over the head about.

Yes, I understand the need for a Free Press. It is absurd I have to make that disclaimer.

I will take the opportunity to mention another favorite talking point of theirs — meaning the press in general. The claim is Trump declared war on the first amendment. Again, by first amendment they are referring to press. (misleading to say the least.) Or some even say he declared war on the “free press.” What nonsense. I have never seen another president more media friendly than Trump.

This bothers me why? It is mostly this “war on or against the first amendment” mantra that gets me. As the old line goes: “what we have here is a failure to communicate.” With all that is going on, there is not a war on the press or first amendment. It is a battle within the First Amendment. But it has always been there. There has always been some friction within the 1st Amend. The press is only one of 5 freedoms contained therein: Freedom of religion, speech, press, petition of grievance, and assembly. I see press is only one fifth of that. Technically, you can say press may have some tangential influence in others.

As to the “war” as they call it within the first amendment; it is press declaring war on the people’s freedoms. Press has no ownership of or control over the First Amendment.

Despite how I really feel about this brouhaha over the press, I will give them this honored day…… to make a joke out of themselves, as they have done for over 10 years.

What an idea!

We could have had special “defense of the first amendment days” back in 2009-2010. Remember the Tea Parties? But we did not get “special day” kudos for defending free speech. We got the royal condemnation for it, and viciously attacked. For all of our organizing skill and peaceful efforts, we had the long arm of the IRS attack dogs sicked on us. It was labeled traitorous to the US Constitution in media. Talk about Orwellian.

Did we get a special assist or atta-boy from the media/press for standing up and defending the First Amendment? Just the opposite. We were attacked for “hiding behind the first amendment.” But it was press that was doing the attacking. They declared war on free speech and dissent, from both ends of Pennsylvania Ave. and in press and media.

So what does that tell us, other than the fact that the “press” doesn’t give a damn about the first amendment? It tells us they have chosen sides. And they chose to go to war against the American people, just for standing up for their first amendment rights.

So for this dedicated “defending press day” I offer them a peace sign minus the index finger. Of course they really don’t need me or anyone else to stand up for them, they have the power of the press. And chose to use that power against the American people. What were they “standing up” for back then? Oh, it was for big-government, for the power of the White House, the power in Congress. Remember their stories of outrage that people yelled at Congressmen, especially black members, when the Democrat caucus paraded in front of Tea Parties to fabricate fake news about us. Then press ran that narrative lie into the ground. We were also labeled racists then. Media assisted.

Excuse me for not having any outrage that the press is victimized. Give me a break. Again, press made huge choices long ago and declared war within the first amendment, against the people. You didn’t just stand idly by, you were the enforcers. Even Ben Rhodes admitted the Obama administration had media, press eating out of their hand. Because, at that point, free press sycophants, you were no longer a “free press.”

Is it time for a ‘voice of free speech task force’? — at least I’m being honest.
See what they did there: “Voice of the First Amendment Task Force”?

[Globe]- The Globe initiative comes amid the president’s repeated verbal attacks on journalists, calling mainstream press organizations “fake news” and “the enemy of the American people.” Tensions came to a boil in early August when CNN reporter Jim Acosta walked out of a press briefing after White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders refused to refute Trump’s “enemy of the people” comments.

‘‘We are not the enemy of the people,’’ Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor of the Globe’s opinion page, told the AP last week.

Hillary and Obama employed the same strategic tactic

What do Hillary and Obama have in common? Among other things, they both used the heck out of Trump. How?

Well, seems Hillary was lucky enough to have her server scandal investigation turned into a Trump counterintelligence investigation, at the urging of her op-research team. That must have made her very happy to substitute a Trump investigation for her own. No wonder she was so confident in those latter days. She knew she had lots of help.

Obama, well, he found use for Trump as a scapegoat for his lack of doing anything about the Russia meddling. (as I said in May) Finally he found use for Trump as the blame for a Russian problem. He used the Russian problem for a pretext against Trump, for an investigation. Redirect the blame on Trump, for what was a problem since at least 2014.

It worked better than could be expected. No one was asking why he did nothing for years or about Susan Rice telling cybersecurity to stand down on any response to Russia. To which media sighed and ignored with Obama’s failure to act. Just pin Obama’s Russia problem on Trump to avoid accountability. A made to order investigation did that.

Both were using Trump for political expedience to cover their own scandalous records.

Kavanaugh and the NYT editorial board

A little comparison experiment: a new commercial calls Kavanaugh a “grand slam for conservatives.” Imagine if Democrats tried doing an honest ad for their nominee. It would be like “he will stretch that Constitution into play-doh. An experienced activist. He’ll assist in rewriting the Constitution. The perfect candidate for Marxists.” No, that doesn’t work the same way. So Dems have to lie: that’s why they can’t be honest. If they told the truth people would be repulsed. Can you picture an honest ad for their agenda?

For a couple years, NYT’s editorial page has tryied to call Trump everything from racist to crazy and unfit. So now their editorial board hires a crazy racist, Sarah Jeong, as a card carrying board member. But they dig in to defend their decision. It is a good fit. No, it was not a slip or something they did not know. It is the reason they hired her.

That is how the Democrats operate. If it were not for deception, they wouldn’t be able to sell anything. So the lie is everything; it’s the bomb.

Just throw in a few more: Obama’s record on the economy. It was abysmal. But now if the Obama economy was that good as they claim, then how come Obama has been out of office for a year and half and the Democrats are still trying to sell Obama’s economic failures? Why is that? But the people would know if it was good, and Democrats wouldn’t have to sell it. It sucked and people knew it did. So now the people have become the problem because they know it. But do you think Obama actually really cared about the economy?

And then Senate intelligence darling, Diane Feinstein has a commie spy chauffeur for 20 years. And Donald Trump’s election was the problem?

While we are at it, Pastor Darrell Scott was called every name and racial slur you can think of. His crime? He went to the White House with other clergy to work on problems affecting justice and the black community, to help people. For that he was attacked. But he was not attacked by nasty Trump supporters, the president, or conservatives and Republicans. He was attacked by blacks and Democrats as an Uncle Tom and traitor to blacks.

This at the same time blacks in Chicago are calling on Rahm Emanuel to resign. Fed up is an understatement. But Democrats and blacks lash out at Scott. It makes no sense, except to the Marxist, increasingly socialist, Left and their plantation police.

Obama’s Treason: Even Worse Than We Thought

But Leftist Privilege will prevent him from ever being held accountable.

June 7, 2018 — Robert Spencer | Frontpage Mag

The Washington Free Beacon reported Wednesday that “the Obama administration skirted key U.S. sanctions to grant Iran access to billions in hard currency despite public assurances the administration was engaged in no such action, according to a new congressional investigation.”

And it gets even worse: “The investigation, published Wednesday by the House Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, further discloses secret efforts by top Obama administration officials to assure European countries they would receive a pass from U.S. sanctions if they engaged in business with Iran.”

This revelation comes after the news that came to light in February, that, according to Bill Gertz in the Washington Times, “the U.S. government has traced some of the $1.7 billion released to Iran by the Obama administration to Iranian-backed terrorists in the two years since the cash was transferred.”

There is a law that applies to this situation. U.S. Code 2381 says:

“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

Obama, Treasonous Traitor

July 16, 2018 — Daniel Greenfield | Frontpage Mag

In the media’s frantic downhill race to out-rage each other over Trump, there’s no bottom. Charles M. Blow, the Cory Booker of media columnists, desperately tried to justify his job with this ridiculous column aimed right at the nerve center of the resistance’s id.

Its subtle title is, “Trump, Treasonous Traitor”.

That’s like a parody of a column like this. In it, Blow declares, “Whether or not Trump himself or anyone in his orbit personally colluded or conspired with the Russians about their interference is something Mueller will no doubt disclose at some point, but there remains one incontrovertible truth: In 2016, Russia, a hostile foreign adversary, attacked the United States of America.”

“Trump should be directing all resources at his disposal to punish Russia for the attacks and prevent future ones. But he is not. America’s commander wants to be chummy with the enemy who committed the crime. Trump is more concerned with protecting his presidency and validating his election than he is in protecting this country.

“This is an incredible, unprecedented moment. America is being betrayed by its own president. America is under attack and its president absolutely refuses to defend it.

“Simply put, Trump is a traitor and may well be treasonous.”

Remember when the New York Times wasn’t a complete joke? Still is this what the left wants as the new metric?

It’s incontrovertible that Islamic terrorists attacked America, but Obama insisted on being chummy with Iran, the Taliban and the Muslim Brotherhood: all of whom had plenty of American blood on their hands.

“This is an incredible, unprecedented moment. America is being betrayed by its own president. America is under attack and its president absolutely refuses to defend it.

“Simply put, Obama is a traitor and may well be treasonous.”

Obama’s cybersecurity coordinator confirms Susan Rice ordered him to ‘stand down’ on Russian meddling

by Christian Datoc | June 20, 2018 | Washington Examiner

Michael Daniel confirmed Wednesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice ordered him and his staff to “stand down” in 2016 in regard to Russian attempts to meddle in the 2016 election.

Daniel, special assistant to former President Barack Obama and White House cybersecurity coordinator, told members of the Senate Intelligence Committee that quotes attributed to him in the book, Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump, were an “accurate rendering of the conversation” he had with Rice and his staff.

Daniel’s staff reportedly responded to the order in “disbelief.”

Over the past year, the Obama administration has been criticized for allegedly being aware of Russian attempts to influence the election yet primarily remaining silent on the subject.

The Washington Post reported that Obama himself — along with three top aides — was given direct evidence from the CIA of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s cyber campaign to influence the election.

The Obama administration reportedly knew of Russia’s actions for months ahead of the 2016 election, but failed to take retaliatory action until December.

“It is the hardest thing about my entire time in government to defend,” a former senior Obama administration official involved in White House deliberations on Russia said of the administration’s inaction. “I feel like we sort of choked.”

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/obamas-cybersecurity-coordinator-confirms-susan-rice-ordered-stand-down-russian-meddling-2016-election

I don’t know, but there are words so much more fitting than “choking.” How about dereliction of duty; or treason; or maybe just fulfilling that super-flexibility role, like President Gumby had promised Putin? Media has been busy ignoring it all.

I remember another distant place where standing down was an issue. Oh yeah, Benghazi.

Russia Meddled and Almost Nobody Cared, Until . .

By Steven J. Allen | June 23rd, 2018

Political leaders and journalists are deeply concerned about Russian meddling in U.S. elections. Took ’em long enough.

The Russians have been meddling in U.S. elections for at least 70 years. see

Serving up a heaping helping of care for anyone interested. And the Dems have been in on, colluding in, the meddling about as long. Their cohorts in the media have been right there with them as long.

Which is why Ted Kennedy could have promised the US media’s help to Andropov, leader of the Communist Party, so they could speak directly to the American people in hopes of undermining Reagan. They demurred. But accepted Obama’s flexibility pledge.

That’s another thing that is not new with the left: the traitorous schemes of their commie roots. Now they are outraged? The Left suffers from a severe case of exposure.

The voices in Lois Lerner’s ear

Once again, we have to thank Tom Fitton for rooting this out. Like everything else the Obama administration tried to bury, the IRS targeting was no different. Go figure, the FBI and DOJ under Obama was involved with this, too.

Judicial Watch Obtains IRS Documents Revealing McCain’s Subcommittee Staff Director Urged IRS to Engage in “Financially Ruinous” Targeting

Judicial Watch | June 21, 2018

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.

Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”

In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”

“Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.”

Judicial Watch previously reported on the 2013 meeting. Senator McCain then issued a statement decrying “false reports claiming that his office was somehow involved in IRS targeting of conservative groups.” The IRS previously blacked out the notes of the meeting but Judicial Watch found the notes among subsequent documents released by the agency.

Judicial Watch separately uncovered that Lerner was under significant pressure from both Democrats in Congress and the Obama DOJ and FBI to prosecute and jail the groups the IRS was already improperly targeting. In discussing pressure from Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (Democrat-Rhode Island) to prosecute these “political groups,” Lerner admitted, “it is ALL about 501(c)(4) orgs and political activity.”

Is there any scheme against conservatives or Republicans that McCain did not have his hands in? It seems like that was his whole purpose, especially to undermine the Right and disrupt their ability to organize. This one scandal was tailor made to fit his agenda.

And the IRS scandal is not over, as JW says it is still recovering documents. That is called a coverup, too. It is easier to cover up when you have the institutional resources cooperating. But this shows how far Obama’s administration went and who all was involved.

By the time you do get info, leftist Obamafiles then try to bury the exposure in subterfuge.

Apparently Obama likes library jokes

So here’s my latest one: Obama worked so hard to get his Chicago LieBarry passed…. for records that are missing. Now wasn’t that hilarious?

Real Clear Politics    (excerpts)
By Thomas Lipscomb — “Crisis at the National Archives
June 10, 2018

To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For the first time electronic government records were placed under the 1950 Federal Records Act. The new law also included updates clarifying “the responsibilities of federal government officials when using non-government email systems” and empowering “the National Archives to safeguard original and classified records from unauthorized removal.” Additionally, it gives the Archivist of the United States the final authority in determining just what is a government record.

And yet the accumulation of recent congressional testimony has made it clear that the Obama administration itself engaged in the wholesale destruction and “loss” of tens of thousands of government records covered under the act as well as the intentional evasion of the government records recording system by engaging in private email exchanges. So far, former President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Lynch and several EPA officials have been named as offenders. The IRS suffered record “losses” as well. Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy called it “an unauthorized private communications system for official business for the patent purpose of defeating federal record-keeping and disclosure laws.”

Clearly, America’s National Archives is facing the first major challenge to its historic role in preserving the records of the United States. What good is the National Archives administering a presidential library, like the planned Obama library in Chicago, if it is missing critical records of interest to scholars? And what’s to prevent evasion of the entire federal records system by subsequent administrations to suit current politics rather than serve scholars for centuries to come?

See: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2018/06/10/crisis_at_the_national_archives_137241.html

Obama is the scandal that really never ends. Between his legacy of lies and Hillary, they are rival experts at hiding records. Where is the award for that?

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.

Read the article at http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/261158/trump-russia-collusion to see how the sausage is literally made.

“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]

After Action Report: Russia

One issue of a blog is you can tend to repeat things. But there are times and things that need repeated, maybe often. Such is the case with motives for the Russia, Trump investigation. Subversives have been very, very busy.

I said it before but the profound factor that sticks in my craw is the cause of the Trump investigation. To call it a Russia investigation is really pathetic. They talk about obstruction of justice. That ain’t a Russia issue. In my younger days, one of my most important lessons was it was not enough to know the how but you have to know the why, too.

In this Russia and Trump thing, we are hearing more and more about the how. I think we know most of it. But I notice they stay pretty silent on the why. We have seen the deep dark ways Obamafiles went about things, with dirty hands, and yet the media stays away from discussing why. Well, they speculated on every other related thing. How come they can’t come to grips to question that? At least Joe DiGenova has reminded us that they framed Trump in this entire thing in retaliation for the election. They try to diminish his integrity by calling it conspiracy theory. Oh, but it was a conspiracy, after all.

Obama had a Russia problem, which he could no longer cover up or just ignore. Even his underlings were prodding him to do something. Ala, along came Trump. He made the perfect scapegoat. Use the Russia problem as the reason to investigate Trump. And use it they did. That is the thing, the big lie, that hangs over this whole smoke cloud. The problem was the genesis for investigating Trump. It makes no sense to most people. That didn’t seem to matter. Push a narrative hard enough and it becomes a fact.

But it served the purpose. It got Obama out of the huge hole he had — an action deficit — to do something about Russia. It appeared like the Obama administration was doing something about Russia when its motives were clearly on Trump. It would bury the truth that he failed to respond, some say was complicit, in the Russia problem. It would alter his historical legacy by substituting Trump for the Russia problem. And it would be the perfect cover for investigating Trump and his entire campaign. Bad enough that it was not a last minute thought. It had been built over months. But the time came when he could formerly merge the two, supposedly seamlessly, so you couldn’t see where one ended and the other started — or where his complicit incompetence started or ended. Or where his malfeasance started because it never ended.

Now what we have is the Deep State running things, in the absence of Obama officials. And the Deep State has surfaced at their pinnacle of power in the DOJ. Sure they have ties throughout but where would their power be at its zenith? Of course when in control in the DOJ. Which is all why now Holder is calling on DOJ employees to defy the Trump administration as well as refuse to cooperate with Congress. As Holder explained in a telegraphed statement tailored directly to them, there have to be times when you just “say no” — to requests from outside the department. This of course would render the DOJ a sovereign power answerable and accountable to no one.

This does make it the most powerful department of the government. It will solidify the control of the Deep State and prevent it from being contested or routed out. But that is precisely why it is so important to challenge the DOJ, even if it is not desirable or popular. It was made to order to cover a multitude of sins of Obama’s. And it didn’t take much for the public to follow their (Obama’s and his lieutenants’) lead. People had been led by the string of mainstream media for years. And Media would do Deep State’s dirty work for them. Media had built up suspicion of Trump from the beginning. It was simply a matter of bringing all sides together: the media’s disdain for Trump, the left’s dissatisfaction and grief over the election, FBI and intelligence’s campaign of investigation and a plot against him, with a good old time-honored strategy or plot against their political opponents. It wouldn’t take much to unite them all in a choreographed coup even once Trump took power.

At the point Trump won the election, all efforts had to be shifted to resistance. Russia looked like even a better cover for that purpose. But the real point was that once the dubious Trump investigation began, right on through with their best efforts of broadening it into a huge counterintelligence investigation, along with Obama’s intentional urging, all was set firmly in place to take on a mind of its own. Especially with the absence of Obama officials after inauguration. Obama knew it would go on and on like they always do. The best part is Trump would be enshrined in one of Obama’s greatest failures — to respond to Russia with any substantial credibility. They wanted to saddle then bury Trump with Obama’s treasonous incompetence.

A solution to the Russia problem. It would no longer be his failure but a problem hung around Trump’s neck. It was also a political solution, the kind Obama liked. Better still it would continue on long after he left office. People would no longer complain or point to Obama as a weak link in one of the biggest elections and greatest upsets in history. They would blame Trump. This is how sinister these people are. The Deep State would cooperate without urging, because they would protect their radical czar.

In the process, Obama destroyed the credibility of the DOJ and FBI in his swamp of subversion. But who cares? Which is more valuable, saving Obama’s legacy or the FBI’s? We know which wins and it isn’t even close. Besides. the DOJ and FBI have their advocates to defend their reputations, at all costs, and they will. Mueller and Rosenstein will creatively defend the assault on the country and election by DOJ and intelligence. They can be counted on for that purpose. As usual, if successful, Obama would get away with offloading the entire blame for his treason and sedition onto Trump.

Obama and his vast number of cohorts throughout government suffered no accountability, at least so far. Can history ignore this choreographed corruption? How do you delete this treason, and now sedition, from the record?

Resist Stance for Memorial Day

” RESISTING Trump’s attacks on our democracy.” — Where in the hell did the left pull that line from, the bowels of George Orwell or something?

Cut to the chase. They are resisting democracy, that’s what they are doing.

As for Trump’s attacks on our democracy, well, that ain’t happening. What is true is Obama attacked us all over the place. Then he went over and promised Medvedev and Putin he would be more flexible after his last election in 2012. And Russia collected.

I hate these cooked up, meaningless phrases of the left. So where did this latest iteration come from? The cream of the sewer that’s where.

“This Memorial Day weekend lets honor the women and men who bravely sacrificed their lives fighting to protect our nation’s freedoms by RESISTING Trump’s attacks on our democracy. #TheResistance is the highest form of Patriotism!” he Tweeted on May 27.

See:: https://constitution.com/as-americans-honor-our-troops-liberals-attack-us-to-smear-memorial-day/

So that is how Leftoids spend Memorial Day, by resisting democracy.

Obama Slithers Out With His Lie

Thou protests too much. Obama trots out the claim his presidency was scandal free.

Fox News

“I didn’t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn’t be something you brag about,” Obama said, according to Newsweek.

“if you look at the history of the modern presidency, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. It’s a big deal.” [and he’s proud — no, instead they got rewarded]

“No one in my White House ever got in trouble for screwing up as long there wasn’t malicious intent behind it,” Obama reportedly told the crowd.

That’s because what he screwed up was the entire country, and we have yet to recover from his tenure of evil. Who knew destroying America was not a scandal?

In fact, most of our problems now were caused directly, if not intentionally, by Obama.

US Attorneys General do not get held in contempt in a scandal-free administration. The IRS doesn’t politically target people in a scandal-free administration. A scandal-free administration, intelligence and DOJ do not start up an investigation of an opponent’s campaign, nor target political opponents by weaponizing government against them.

Even now, his LieBarry (as I call it) is a big scandal. Obama’s truth-challenged legacy.
To believe any of Obama’s claims would “require the willing suspension of disbelief.”

Here’s Obama in search of a scandal-free zone.

Dysfunctional Resistance is New Normal

Let me try to explain the current family tree of politics. The left’s hallucination now is Mitch McConnell as the divider and culprit of the chaotic, abnormal state we are in.

Yeah, right. Try as they will. It would take a whole lot of wrongjuice to believe or accept that as fact. So here we go, allow me to paraphrase it as colorful as I can:

Abby and Normal eloped in Obama’s first term. Harry Reid officiated the wedding. That is the place where right became wrong and wrong became right, up became down and down became up. Unconstitutional became the rule of law. Dissent became a crime. We became a country governed by a man and political party, instead of the rule of law.

Abby and Norm are still on an extended honeymoon. No hope for annulment and it doesn’t look like a divorce will come anytime soon. Theirs is one marriage I wish would not last. And they seem to have enough distant relatives to make a lot of mischief.

It turns out, all it takes is a radical minority of hell bent miscreants to ruin functionality of the system. They have now perfected it. From the Justice of Peace to justice of chaos.

So even people on the left ask, “when will normal process be coming back?” They ask us? The culprits who encouraged Abby and Norm to hook up now blame their marriage on anyone else. But they cannot deny Abby and Norm are hitched. That fact doesn’t bother them. They incite all the effects and do everything possible to keep them happily together. Nothing is off limits for the Abnormals. The trick is to make everything normal’s fault.

What’s a little Coup among enemies?

American Spectator
George Neumayr — March 21, 2018 [excerpts]
“As his plot to destroy Trump backfires, his squeals grow louder.”

America will triumph over a president it elected? That’s the raw language of coup, and of course it is not the first time Brennan has indulged it. In 2017, he was calling for members of the executive branch to defy the chief executive. They should “refuse to carry out” his lawful directives if they don’t agree with them, he said.

Another hardcore leftist, Samantha Power, who spent the weeks after Trump’s victory rifling through intelligence picked up on his staff, found Brennan’s revolutionary tweet very inspiring. “Not a good idea to piss off John Brennan,” she wrote. Sounded pretty dark and grave. But not to worry, she tweeted later. She just meant that the former CIA director was going to smite Trump with the power of his “eloquent voice.”

Out of power, these aging radicals can’t help themselves. They had their shot to stop Trump, they failed, and now they are furious. The adolescent coup talk grows more feverish with each passing day. We have a former CIA director calling for the overthrow of a duly elected president, a former attorney general (Eric Holder) calling for a “knife fight,” a Senate minority leader speaking ominously about what the intelligence community might do to Trump (“they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer has said), and assorted former FBI and CIA officials cheering for a coup, such as CNN’s Phil Mudd who says, “You’ve been around for 13 months. We’ve been around since 1908. I know how this game is going to be played. We’re going to win.”

A little late, the coup should have happened by 2011. That was the tree that never fell in the woods, and everyone heard it. But commie fans like Brennan loved that era.

What is with Obama loyalty?

I kept wistfully wishing that someone would break his/her Obama Omertà and spill the beans about all the corruption (conspiracy) of the Obama era. With every passing day that seems less and less likely. What would it take?

Or were their type of activities in Obama’s Cosa Nostra so intentionally spread out among their crew of ‘bigwigs’ that no one would dare blow the whistle or implicate themselves? (well-schooled radicals) Protecting the whole is greater than the sum of any of the parts.

Or do all Obama-hoodies believe so much in the outfit that it carries a loyalty higher than any moral, ethical code? Especially if the organization is to live on in a future capacity. Hell, they invented their own loyalty (and ethics) to rival any mob or crime syndicate.

Their slogan must be: “no one talks, and everyone walks.”

Maybe… someday?

Note:**Omertà /oʊˈmɛərtə/ (Italian pronunciation: [omerˈta]) is a code of honor that places importance on silence, non-cooperation with authorities, and non-interference in the illegal actions of others. It originated and remains common in Southern Italy, where banditry or brigandage and Mafia-type criminal organizations (like the Camorra, Cosa Nostra, ‘Ndrangheta and Sacra Corona Unita) are strong. It is also deeply rooted in rural Spain, Crete (Greece), and Corsica, all of which share a common or similar historic culture with Southern Italy.
