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.

“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]

A Paradox in Singapore

So there is the “deal” that this Singapore Summit is supposed to be about — yet to be fully defined and seen, if it is in the near future. Then there is the message that even this formal meeting sends to any other country. It seems to be a paradox

On one hand the attempt is to do something good toward eliminating a nuclear threat, while on the other the unavoidable message of what brought it about. Nuclear weapons. Are there benefits to threatening the US and our allies? At first blush, maybe there are.

The good side is that this is US and North Korea talking. Well, that is it is not Russia and China or six party talks. Who would want two of NK’s biggest allies in the talk of a deal?

Dennis Rodman made a surprise appearance in Singapore. He explained his speaking to Kim Jong Un years ago, relating the story he came back with a message for then President Obama. Rodman delivered the message and Obama would “not give him the time of day.” He said he was “brushed off”. Rodman was pissed off at Obama and wore a Make America Great Again hat on CNN. He had to go in hiding from all the death threats.

Swamp Economy of Politics

Many people laughed at Bill Maher wanting the economy to crash, but it does show something more sinister.

Let’s not forget that the left politicized every department of government under Obama. Let’s not forget he weaponized much of it against his political opponents. Isn’t that what the Left wants government for?

So is it such a leap then that they are wishing for economic collapse to hurt Trump or drive him out, and hurt those supporting him? Not at all.

However, it says a modicum of truth about the left today. Forget all what liberals say they are about and care about. Like everything else, they want an economy politicized and weaponized against their political opponents. That is the economy they have in mind.

The next time they lecture us that they would be better stewards of the economy, they have revealed what they mean — an economy subservient to their political agenda.

They already showed us in all their protests and boycotts how they want to use the economy, to hurt their political enemies or reward their friends and allies. Just that Maher makes it clear. That is what the social justice warriors mean. It is only another extension of their ideological core and lust for power. Goal: a fully politicized, weaponized economy.

Maher is now doing the walk of shame

Bill Maher is not letting any opportunity slide to bash Trump. He now hopes for a recession that would oppose Trump’s favorability. It finally came to this.

Well, the moonbats have gone completely crazy.

Bill Maher is ‘hoping for’ an economic collapse so he can ‘get rid of Trump’: ‘Sorry if that hurts people’

HBO host Bill Maher said Friday that he is “hoping for” an economic collapse because that is the only way the president’s opponents can “get rid of Trump.”

Maher first asked guest Shermichael Singleton to asses the current economy under President Trump.

“It is going well,” Singleton answered. “For now.”

“Thank you, that’s my question,” Maher added. “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it.”

“I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.”

The economy appears to be improving under President Trump despite his ongoing trade war with both China and U.S. allies.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/bill-maher-is-hoping-for-an-economic-collapse-so-he-can-get-rid-of-trump-sorry-if-that-hurts-people

How about maybe the bottom just fell out of Maher’s common sense reserve tank? He’s running completely on empty. At least now he said it, he is hoping for America’s demise. Are there any sane liberals any more?

First, they claimed the entire economy would collapse on Trump’s election. Now they are hoping it will. What’s left but sabotage? May Maher’s program be the first fatality.

I know, maybe we can fake out the Left somehow? They seemed much happier when the economy was tanking.

The Walk Away movement

Here’s a man on a mission who started a new campaign. (maybe not so new since I’ve already seen some others) But this guy, I think, has it nailed.

It is called the #WalkAway campaign…. from the liberal, Democrat left that is.
The author goes by The Unsilent Minority on Facebook. Powerful. (read post on FB)

“…false narratives and conclusions perpetuated by ‘social justice warriors’….”

Checkout Wayne Dupree’s post on it. H/T for spreading the word.
https://www.waynedupree.com/hes-leaving-the-democratic-party/

Well, when the message comes straight from a former “liberal” it is hard to ignore.

The Stormy Cash Chase

The radicalized, Trump-obsessed lawyer, Michael Avenatti, and his porn star client have been asking good Americans to fund their endless efforts. (for now over 500,000) For what, I am not too sure.

“We are short of our goal and need some help,” Avenatti tweeted

However, here is what Stormy told a reporter to explain her and his lust for cash:

Daily Caller

According to the post on “Crowd Justice,” the site the pair are using to raise the funds, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said:

“I am attempting to speak honestly and openly to the American people about my relationship with now President Donald Trump, as well as the intimidation and tactics that he, together with his attorney Michael Cohen, have used to silence me.”

As for why they need the money, the fundraising post says,

“I need funds to pay for: attorneys’ fees; out-of-pocket costs associated with the lawsuit, arbitration, and my right to speak openly; security expenses; and damages that may be awarded against me if I speak out and ultimately lose to Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen.”

http://dailycaller.com/2018/06/04/michael-avenatti-solicits-donations-stormy-daniels/

Get that last part, she wants money in the event they lose and have to pay up. “Damages that may be awarded against me.” So she implies some personal understanding that her breaching the NDA, at Avenatti’s request, is making herself liable for those damages.

This is the first sign in her a statements that she recognizes any accountability.

So it’s outrageous to me that someone would be breaking a contract (or the law) then run a scheme to raise money for penalties of doing it. Sort of surreal.

On top of that she is commanding top billing and pay for her appearances. In January, she got paid 75,000 in Las Vegas for one night’s booking. But she needs to ask people for their hard earned money to support her and her crooked lawyers agenda? (that could put her yearly income in the the range of 10+ million) She needs legal funding help?

So she wants you to pay the price for her breaching her own NDA.

Slow walking the IG report

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

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

by Cristina Laila June 5, 2018 | Gateway Pundit

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

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

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

Sara Carter reported:

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

[…]

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

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

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

Cake Baker Dump

A major SCOTUS decision came out today about the cake baker in Colorado. But let me take this opportunity to translate and paraphrase the dissent opinion, which is from Ruth Ginsberg and Sonia Sotomayor.

They hold that the discrimination commission has the all powerful right to validate, or particularly invalidate a person’s religious freedom or beliefs, and its limitations.

I think we’ve seen that movie before… and know how it ends.

Rhodes to NBC rescue

Former Obama Aide Ben Rhodes Joins MSNBC, NBC News as Political Contributor

BY: David Rutz | June 2, 2018 | Washington Free Beacon

Former top Barack Obama White House aide Ben Rhodes is joining MSNBC and NBC News as a political contributor.

MSNBC’s media relations team tweeted out the announcement Saturday, saying Rhodes would make his NBC debut on Sunday on “Meet The Press.”

Rhodes’ official title in the Obama administration was Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, and he played key roles in numerous foreign policy decisions. He took heat in 2016 when he boasted in a New York Times profile of creating an “echo chamber” to sell the Iran nuclear deal and mocked Washington, D.C., reporters.

Who did not see that one coming? (wonder what the terms are?) Participate in a plot against elections and the US, and you get the analyst armchair at a major network. Right on the heels of Obama and Michele heading to Netflix, while Valerie Jarrett secured a seat on the board.

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?

Langley, we have a problem

The London-to-Langley Spy Ring

The roots of Obamagate become clearer.

George Neumayr– The American SpectatorMay 25, 2018,

Even before the first Republican primary, a London-to-Langley spy ring had begun to form against Donald Trump. British spies sent to CIA director John Brennan in late 2015 alleged intelligence on contacts between Trumpworld and the Russians, according to the Guardian.

Here’s the crucial paragraph in the story:

GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added.

Notice it doesn’t say the “Trump campaign” but “figures connected to Trump.” One of those figures was Michael Flynn, who didn’t join the campaign until February 2016. But Brennan and British intelligence had already started spying on him, drawing upon sham intelligence from Stefan Halper, a long-in-the-tooth CIA asset teaching at Cambridge University whom Brennan and Jim Comey would later send to infiltrate the Trump campaign’s ranks.

It appears that Halper had won Brennan’s confidence with a false report about Flynn in 2014 — a reported sighting of Flynn at Cambridge University talking too cozily with a Russian historian. Halper had passed this absurdly simpleminded tattle to a British spy who in turn gave it to Brennan, as one can deduce from this euphemistic account in the New York Times about Halper as the “informant” …./:

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/apr/13/british-spies-first-to-spot-trump-team-links-russia

 

 

The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is an intelligence and security organisation responsible for providing signals intelligence (SIGINT) and information assurance to the government and armed forces of the United Kingdom.[3] Based in “The Doughnut” in the suburbs of Cheltenham, GCHQ is the responsibility of the country’s Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, but it is not a part of the Foreign Office and its director ranks as a Permanent Secretary.

Oh, and let me guess again, Obama, Jarrett, Rhodes, Rice etc. didn’t know anything about what was going on?

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.

Yates drops inadvertent truth bomb

Yates sat down for an interview with Morning Joe sharpening her critique on President Trump, for his asking DOJ to look into investigation abuse of his presidential campaign.

The Hill

Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates on Monday said President Trump has taken his “assault on the rule of law to a new level” by demanding the Justice Department (DOJ) look into alleged surveillance abuses of his 2016 presidential campaign.

 

“I think what we’re seeing here is the president has taken his all-out assault of the rule of law to a new level and this time he is ordering up an investigation of the investigators who are examining his own campaign. You know, that’s really shocking,” Yates said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/388599-sally-yates-trump-has-taken-his-assault-on-the-rule-of-law-to-a

Let’s talk about “Shocking” Sally.

No matter how coy Sally Yates tries to play with her words, the truth is still clear: “Investigators who are [investigating] his own campaign.” Think about that.

That is called investigating Trump’s campaign, and that is what they are/were doing. That is by definition what investigators do. It is Precisely the same predicament Comey had with Loretta Lynch over the Hillary Clinton investigation. They wanted to call it a matter, when in reality it was an investigation — intentionally botched one but an investigation.

See the problem now? They have been trying to tell us it is an investigation into Russia but from the mouths of babes, Yates slipped out the truth that it is an investigation of the Trump campaign, no matter how innocuously she tries to phrase it.

And when has this occurred before in history? How about never.

Sure autopsies on campaigns are done in politics by candidates post-election, but an FBI investigation of a presidential campaign, begun while in process some time before the election? Look for some precedent on that. I’m pretty sure there isn’t one. Even in Hillary’s case, they were investigating her prior conduct not the campaign itself.

During the 2016 campaign, remember how much they made out of the fact that we don’t go after political opponents in this country. Presuming an investigation against Hillary, after the election, was the subject. No, in this case they opened and carried on an active investigation of the Trump campaign long before the election. Then carried it right into his presidency. He had never been a public official or even in a major campaign before. So the conduct they were looking at was before he even got into office.

Imagine what all those investigators were thinking as they watched the campaign go on, knowing full well they had a spy or paid informant working with FBI in their investigation into the campaign? And knowing they were using the dosssier of his political opponent as their reason and evidence for FISA warrants. Then they lied about it all the way.

New WP policies

New WordPress policy started May 22, 2018. But I don’t know if the policies are new or just the disclosure of them in this way.

If you notice the banner at the bottom of the page on coolies privacy policy, you can view the information about the policies

So I’ve checked them and most of it seems pretty standard. However, there is still always a factor of how third parties use the information they collect, and what user information they are allowed to receive.

This brings to mind thoughts about the internet marketplace. It has me asking questions about the power of advertising, or ad partners. And about the indiscriminate ads that are applied to one’s site, unbeknownst to the site owner. These things bring up issues related to leftist activism, focused at people they disagree with. Seems like there is a can of worms there just waiting to be opened.

A lot of this disclosure, as well as some rules, seem to be based on the EU regulations.

*GDPR — General Data Protection Regulation of the EU

Here is something that stymies my mind. Obviously I am not in the EU. However, one of the WP tools, Akismet, gives you this reminder.
