Obama’s Comey Melting?

JAMES COMEY IN PANIC MODE

 

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

That’s my interpretation of this tweet, anyway:

James Comey

@Comey

Dangerous time when our country is led by those who will lie about anything, backed by those who will believe anything, based on information from media sources that will say anything. Americans must break out of that bubble and seek truth.

Many people criticize Donald Trump’s tweets as ill-advised, unpresidential, and so on. Perhaps so. But we have learned a lot about both James Comey and John “Comrade” Brennan from their tweets, too–much of it considerably less flattering than anything we have learned about Trump.

Speaking of whom…I assume that Comey intended his tweet as a response to a series of tweets by the president early this morning that included this one:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Look how things have turned around on the Criminal Deep State. They go after Phony Collusion with Russia, a made up Scam, and end up getting caught in a major SPY scandal the likes of which this country may never have seen before! What goes around, comes around!

 I assume Comey is getting worried because the story of how senior Obama officials conspired to spy on the Trump campaign and then get the Fusion GPS smears into the public domain is slowly coming out. If I were in his shoes, I would be worried too.

U.S. Leftists Becoming Fascists Slowly?

Leftists Slowly Turning Off the Faucet of Free Speech

by Lloyd Marcus at American Thinker:

 

The majority of my fellow black friends, family, and associates are low-info voters. They look at me in stunned disbelief when I tell them that every negative thing they believe about conservatives/Republicans is true of leftist/Democrats.

For example: leftists say conservatives are intolerant. In reality, leftists are the ones totally intolerant of opposing views. Fake news media is not reporting that leftist operatives are physically beating up people and pushing legislation to jail people who will not submit to leftists’ anti-God and anti-America agendas.  In essence, leftists are repealing our constitutional right to free speech.

Recently, a dozen Cheesecake Factory employees approached the table of a young black customer.  Incredibly, the employees harassed and threaten to punch the restaurant’s patron in his face for wearing a MAGA hat.

Can you believe that, folks?  Had the employees attacked a customer wearing a Black Lives Matter or homosexual rainbow logo hat, outraged leftists would demand that the Cheesecake Factory fire the employees immediately.  By the way, the courageous young black customer has a good reason to support Trump.  Black unemployment is at an all-time low.

With leftist college professors condoning violence to silence politically incorrect speech, a disturbing 19% of college students believe they have the moral high ground to physically assault people who express opinions they don’t like.  So it is not surprising that seniors and veterans have been brutalized for wearing “Make America Great Again” attire.  A 9-year-old was harassed and forbidden to wear his MAGA hat to school.

Leftists put out narratives on various issues and then socially and physically beat the crap out of anyone who dares to challenge what leftists deem true.

Enraged leftists descended upon my wife with furious anger on Facebook for daring to say stats prove that cops do not routinely murder blacks.  Data confirm that blacks are the ones murdering blacks in record numbers in urban Democrat strongholds.  Leftists quickly attacked my wife to defend their evil lie, which has led to Black Lives Matter ambushing and assassinating police across America.

Another leftist lie that you had better not get caught challenging – especially if you are black – is that America is an eternally racist hellhole for blacks.  Leftists are trying to economically and socially beat the crap out of black Millennials Kanye West and Candace Owens for suggesting that blacks should stop clinging to victim status and pursue their dreams.

I roll my eyes when black walking-dead leftist zombies lecture me about how white America hated Obama being in the White House.

Blacks are only 12% of the population.  Therefore, white America elected a black president two times.  Black media queen Oprah is worth two billion dollars.  Obama’s “PROMISE program” forbids schools from reporting or punishing bad behavior by minority students.  Beginning in kindergarten through college, white students are taught to hate themselves for being white.  It is counterproductive for blacks to continue viewing themselves as victims, still singing, “We Shall Overcome.”

Folks, did you ever think a day would come when leftists would demand that we do not state the truth that there are only two sexes?

College student Lake Ingle was kicked out of class for saying biologists officially say there are only two sexes.

Leftists have decreed that there are 71 different “genders,” including no-gender and gender-fluid.  Anyone caught publicly stating otherwise will suffer public humiliation and dire social, economic, and even physical consequences.  And yet leftists are praised as paragons of tolerance.

Obama’s DoJ wanted to throw scientists in jail who disagreed with man-made climate change.  A California bill seeks to criminalize speaking biblical views on sexuality.  Remember the mentally disabled white man four leftists kidnapped and tortured for saying he liked Trump?  Intolerant of allowing parents to teach their children their values and principles, leftists seek to make homeschooling illegal.

Leftists have brainwashed our kids into believing that not hurting feelings should trump freedom.  In less than an hour, 50 people on the campus of Yale signed a bogus petition to end our First Amendment.  The First Amendment protects our free speech, religion, assembly, press, and petition.  This sounds pretty intolerant to me.

Intolerant Missouri student V.P. Brenda Smith-Lezama wants our First Amendment right to free speech repealed because it causes an “unsafe” learning environment.  Can you imagine a young person spouting this crap?  When I attended the Maryland Institute College of Art in the ’70s, we were encouraged to extend our thinking as far as our imaginations would allow.  Today, colleges demand that everyone think the same.

In a nutshell, intolerant leftists are hyper-aggressively silencing free speech via bullying and criminalization while deceptively portraying themselves as victims of hate from intolerant mainstream Americans.

Like the title of the old Marvin Gaye song, it is time for the American people to realize “What’s Going On.”  Now that you know, it is time for Americans to stand.

Will Justice Find James Clapper, Obama’s Head of National Intelligence IN JAIL FOR PERJURY AND PLOT?

MORE EVIDENCE OF DEEP STATE COLLABORATION WITH CNN ON THE STEELE DOSSIER

by Paul Mirengoff  at  PowerLine:

I believe most Power Line readers know the story of how the infamous anti-Trump dossier compiled by Christopher Steele, and in particular its most salacious contents, found its way into the mainstream media. To recap, CNN had the dossier in late 2016 and was looking for an excuse (a hook) to report on its most salacious contents, even though they had not been verified. On January 6, James Comey briefed Trump on those contents, supposedly to protect him in case CNN and/or other outlets reported them.

Then, on January 10, CNN published a story on the dossier’s most salacious contents, on the pretext that, since Trump had now been briefed, it was legitimate news notwithstanding the unverified nature of these contents. That same day, Buzzfeed published the entire dossier.

In other words, CNN was waiting for a hook to publish unverified, damaging material about Trump. Comey provided that hook on the pretense of “protecting” Trump. CNN then published.

There’s more. As we discussed here, based on the reporting of Sean Davis, James Clapper appears to have helped choreograph this dance. It was Clapper who told Comey to brief Trump on the dossier. And it might well have been Clapper who passed the word to CNN that Trump had been briefed — and thus that CNN had the hook it needed to publish the unverified, salacious information from which the deep state supposedly was protecting Trump.

Clapper initially testified to Congress that he did not “discuss the dossier or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists.” However, when confronted specifically about conversations with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Clapper acknowledged discussing the dossier with Tapper and admitted he might have spoken with other journalists about the same topic. These discussions took place in early January, right around the time CNN learned that Trump had been briefed, clearing the way for it to publish.

But Clapper wasn’t the only member of the deep state who was in this CNN loop. Andrew McCabe was also involved.

We know this from emails obtained and released by Sen. Ron Johnson. On January 8, two days after the Comey-Trump briefing and two days before the CNN story appeared, the then-FBI Deputy Director wrote the following to senior FBI leadership, under the subject “Flood is coming”:

CNN is close to going forward with the sensitive story. . .The trigger for them [sic] is they know the material was discussed in the brief and presented in an attachment.

As Sean Davis explains, “sensitive story” is the term the FBI and others in the Obama administration had been using to refer to the salacious content in the Trump dossier.

McCabe wasn’t finished emailing about the coming “flood.” That same day, he emailed Sally Yates:

Just an FYI, and as expected, it seems CNN is close to running a story about the sensitive reporting.

I construe this as signaling “mission accomplished” to a fellow member of the mission team (Yates and McCabe were using the same code words to describe the salacious dossier material). Apparently, there was no need for a similar email to Clapper.

How did McCabe know what CNN was “close” to doing ? Perhaps Clapper told him. More likely, he was communicating directly with CNN. Keep in mind that McCabe was fired because he indulged in unauthorized leaking to journalists and then lied about it.

Sen. Johnson has sent a letter to FBI Director Wray setting forth the timeline established by the McCabe’s emails and propounding five requests for information. Among the five are:

The date and circumstances by which the FBI first learned that media outlets, including CNN, may have possessed the Steele Dossier.

All documents and communications between or among James Comey and James Clapper or their staffs referring or relating to Director Comey’s briefing of President-elect Trump about the Steele Dossier.

All documents and communications between or among FBI employees and other Executive officials or employees referring or relating to the “sensitive matter” or to Director Comey’s communication to then-President-elect Trump about the existence of the Steele Dossier.

These are good requests. However, even if the FBI complies, it won’t eliminate the need to put Clapper, McCabe, Comey, and Yates under oath and to ask them the hard questions about this matter.

What Will Become of ALL THAT HILLARY DIRT?

Dirt on Hillary

by J. Masolo   at  American Thinker:

For the past two years, the media and Dems have relentlessly attacked President Trump, claiming he “colluded” with the Russians to beat Hillary.  They cannot accept that President Trump beat Hillary and is dismantling the Obama “legacy.”  Mueller and his staff of Hillary-Obama contributors disguised as attorneys have wasted over one year on this investigation.

One principal premise of the so-called “collusion” is that the Trump campaign met with and contacted Russians to obtain “dirt” on Hillary and the DNC emails.

The logical questions are, what dirt could the Russians possibly provide that we do not already know about Hillary, and how could it be worse than the truth about Hillary?

Think about it: dirt on Hillary.  Why would we need Russians, or anyone else, to inform us about dirt on Hillary?

All you have to do is honestly examine Hillary’s and Bill’s shenanigans since their days in Arkansas.  This does take some time and attention, given the complex, corrupt history of Hillary and Bill.  It is essentially lying, greed, and abuse of power.

We already know the dirt about Hillary: Whitewater, missing billing records, selling pardons, selling uranium to the Russians, stealing White House silverware, FBI files on Republicans, covering up Bubba’s rape and sexual harassments, the email scandal, destroying emails under subpoena, Travelgate, attacking the women harassed by Bill, and more.  I am sure I missed some.

The problem is not getting dirt on Hillary.  We have the dirt on Hillary.  There is so much dirt that it is mindboggling for anyone who cares, which excludes Democrats and the media.

But none of the real dirt about Hillary mattered to the Dems who nominated Hillary and the media that promoted her campaign.  What could the Russians possibly have on Hillary that is worse than what we know about her?  Even if the Russians have worse dirt than what we know about Hillary, it would not matter to Hillary-supporters and the anti-Trumps and NeverTrumps.  They still would have voted for Hillary.

Simply stated, the charge that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to obtain dirt about Hillary is ridiculous and falls apart when one honestly examines Hillary’s record.  Hillary had to pay Steele to make up dirt on President Trump.  But the dirt on Hillary is there for anyone who cares to know.

The Ignorance of Today’s American Fascist CNN Left…. They ARE Animals!

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2018/05/21/no_one_is_an_animal_137080.html

WASHINGTON — It’s never right to call other human beings “animals.” It’s not something we should even have to debate. No matter how debased the behavior of a given individual or group, no matter how much legitimate anger genuinely evil actions might inspire, dehumanizing others always leads us down a dangerous path.

This is why we need to reflect on the controversy over exactly whom President Trump was referring to as “animals” during a roundtable discussion last week at the White House with state and local officials from California on so-called sanctuary laws.

 

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2018/05/22/why_the_left_wont_call_anyone_animals_137089.html

“If you want to understand the moral sickness at the heart of leftism, read the first paragraph of the most recent column by Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne:

“It’s never right to call other human beings ‘animals.’ It’s not something we should even have to debate. No matter how debased the behavior of a given individual or group, no matter how much legitimate anger that genuinely evil actions might inspire, dehumanizing others always leads us down a dangerous path.”

Let’s begin with the first sentence: “It’s never right to call other human beings ‘animals.'”

This is so self-evident to Dionne that he adds, “It’s not something we should even have to debate.”

Only someone who has never debated the issue could make such a claim.

So allow me to debate the assertion.

My view is the antithesis of Dionne’s. As I see it, it is not right to never call another human being an “animal.”

Calling the cruelest among us names such as “animal” or any other “dehumanizing” epithet actually protects humans. The word “beastly” exists for a reason and is frequently applied to human beings. By rhetorically reading certain despicable people out of the human race, we elevate the human race. We have declared certain behaviors out of line with being human.

Biologically, of course, we are all human. But if “human” is to mean anything moral — anything beyond the purely biological — then some people who have committed particularly heinous acts of evil against other human beings are not to be considered human. Otherwise “human” has no moral being. We should then not retain the word “inhumane.” What is the difference between “he is inhumane” and “he is an animal”? Both imply actions that render the person no longer human.

Dionne provides his answer at the end of the paragraph: “dehumanizing others always leads us down a dangerous path.”

He provides not a single argument or illustration for this truly absurd comment.

Anyone who refuses to “dehumanize” the Nazi physicians — who, with no anesthesia, froze naked people for hours and then dropped them in boiling water to rewarm them; put people in depressurized rooms where their eardrums burst, driving them out of their minds from pain; rubbed wood shavings and ground glass into infected wounds, etc. — is, to put it very gently, profoundly morally confused.

What would Dionne have us call those Nazi physicians — “not nice,” “badly flawed,” “evil”? Why is rhetorically ostracizing them from the human race “a dangerous path”? He doesn’t have an answer because he lives in the left’s world of moral-sounding platitudes. Leftism consists almost entirely of moral-sounding platitudes — statements meant to make the person making them feel morally sophisticated. But based on their relative reactions to the sadists of the MS-13 gangs, I trust Donald Trump’s moral compass more than E. J. Dionne’s.

It is ever dangerous to use dehumanizing rhetoric on people? Of course — when it is directed at people based on their race, religion, ethnicity, nationality or any other immutable physical characteristic. The Nazis did what they did to Jews and others because they dehumanized them based on their religious/ethnic/racial identity. That’s why racism is evil. But why is it dangerous to use such rhetoric on people based on their behavior? By equating labeling the cruelest among us “animals” with labeling Jews “animals,” Dionne cheapens the fight against real evil.

I once asked Rabbi Leon Radzik, a Holocaust survivor who had been in Auschwitz, what word he would use to characterize the sadistic guards in the camp. I will never forget his response: “They were monsters with a human face.”

Incredibly, Dionne would not agree with him.”

 

Commentary:   E. J. Dionne, like 99% of  today’s America’s newsprint propagandists apparently has never been educated in things “science” or “arithmetic”, such as “two plus two equals four”…..unless the feminized are overcome with emotion.

Dionne has been around these feminized a long, long time.  What else can be expected at today’s Obama New York Times, Washington Post, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, Harvard and Yale, and your local high schools of lower learnings.

Thank you Dennis Prager for your courage to remind collapsing Americana that there is still meaning to the word “Truth” even in this world of today’s Schumer Democrat Party of fascistic persuasion from ignorance.

The Curse of Feminized USA Schools and their Gun Problems

Despite the political clap-trap being sold as “freedom”  in today’s American schools, kindergarten through to graduate school, fascism is not yet full blown, but it IS feminized, and it is conquering the American community.

Feminists of all sexes, colors, shape, and sizes are poisoning American education, and therefore. our America!…..They are from and in the mouthy Democratic leftist quadrant of Barack and Hillary where two and two do not necessarily  equal four……Especially if they are NOT IN THE MOOD to make the masses be equal and poor!

The modern  human females,  the today’s Hillary ones drooling and fevered at college, unless taught otherwise, have, at last “become free”!  Unlike the past, they now “own” their feelings.  They go to college, Harvard and Yale, California and Evergreen…..

Yes, Egyptian, Greek, and such MEN of the before and after,  invented arithmetic!

“We are the NEW woman… We can add or subtract, however, whatever  we please without those damned men telling us the answers!”

ELIMINATE THE PAST….BAN HISTORY! the Hillary Clinton act-alikes shout, compose, and write novels, rally at political gatherings, and teach at school!

I attended public schools from kindergarten through high school in St. Paul, Minnesota from 1939 to June, 1952…..Until my senior year when the leftists first began their assault to force everyone to think the same, be equal,  and so, know nothing,  decided to eliminate evaluating student achievement by grades beyond pass-fail.   (The rising fem class at university  thought students would feel better without pressure!  Better yet, the teachers wouldn’t have to know as much in their field of study.)

And then there arrived the mid sixties and the sexual, druggie, Abbie Hoffman  revolution…..where college gals felt and were taught they had as much right to screw as any guy around.

That old JudeoChristian human male was so boring, so wussy; human female so prissy…. without LSD, especially.

JudeoChristians were sent backstage to the new American catacombs, their living rooms, their mothers, their fathers…..but about half of our American ones were taught to turn  to “freedom”…to be free  to be a vulgar, programmed, leftist animal with heap big mouth, and no brain and feel great about voting for Hillary, Barack, and the Socialist from Vermont.

Shootings in schools have excited the vulgar American feminized leftists to the thrill  of blaming the…..the….human American WHITE male animal for its victims.

“THINK OF THE CHILDREN AND THEIR SUFFERINGS THESE WHITE AMERICAN MALE HUNTERS CAUSE WITH THEIR HUNTING  TOYS!  END WAR FOREVER, VOTE DEMOCRAT!”,  the feminist of all sexes, colors, shapes, and sizes shout at their rallies, and write at the New York Times and Washington Post, PBS, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, and so one!

Why don’t the Washington Post and New York Times, and all the rest of the still remaining newspapers, all lefties from coast to coast, offer the American public statistics of number of deaths by guns have occurred at schools since, let’s say 1875?

Could FEMINIZED  schools, GOD FORBID, BE TO BLAME?…..the disappearance of MOTHERS AT HOME AND NEIGHBORHOOD….like the beautiful ones who used to command the neighborhoods where I was born  and raised…..Or, the disappearance of  the family and school that used to teach decency in the name of God by which THIS NATION, UNDER GOD, WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED!!!!

 

Democrats on a Venezuela Program for Our America? Fascists are Fascists Regardless of Geography!

VENEZUELA “VOTES.” IS THERE A LESSON HERE FOR DEMOCRATS?

by John Hinderaker at  PowerLine:

An election is going on in Venezuela. In a country where there are no more pets and children join gangs to fight over dumpster refuse, while their parents battle for dead rats to eat for dinner, you would expect the incumbent party to lose a free election. But Nicolas Maduro will no doubt be re-elected, in part because the polls are being boycotted by most of his opponents. So Venezuela’s socialist catastrophe will most likely continue, for now. The Associated Press reports:

Sunday’s election has drawn broad criticism since some of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s most-popular rivals were barred from running, and several more were forced into exile.

There were a lot of other irregularities, too, but barring your rivals from running is a tried-and-true path to a second term.

Here in the U.S, the Democratic Party tried a subtler approach. It hired Fusion GPS to fabricate smears against Donald Trump, and then leaked those smears to news outlets that it controls (i.e., nearly all of them) and used the smears to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. The Democrats also conveyed the Fusion GPS fantasies to high-ranking office-holders like Harry Reid, who used them to attack candidate Trump. But reporters were squeamish about running with the Fusion GPS story, which few actually believed, and, to the Democrats’ dismay, Trump won the election.

So the Democrats went into overdrive. Shortly before President-Elect Trump’s inauguration, Obama’s CIA and FBI leaders “briefed” Trump on the Fusion GPS dossier, which Trump naturally knew was an absurd pack of lies. No matter: that “intelligence briefing,” leaked to the press, opened the floodgates, and Democratic Party news outlets promptly went public with the contents of the false dossier, in an effort to disable President-Elect Trump’s nascent administration.

At the moment, the Democrats’ relatively subtle approach doesn’t appear to be working very well. Next time, perhaps, they won’t take any chances, and will go full Maduro.
