So the Feinstein’s Fascist Assault upon Judge Kavanaugh is Mistaken Identity?

A CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY?

by Paul Mirengoff  at PowerLine:

Yesterday, word circulated in certain quarters of the D.C. legal/public policy community that the assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh may be a case of mistaken identity. In other words, the incident happened, but the perpetrator wasn’t Kavanaugh.

In the version I heard, the assault was committed by a guy who attended the Landon School, not Georgetown Prep where Kavanaugh was a student. Landon and Georgetown Prep are both elite prep schools in the prosperous Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Having no idea whether this information is reliable, I wrote nothing about it. I was struck, however, by this tweet by Ed Whelan from last night:

By one week from today, I expect that Judge Kavanaugh will have been clearly vindicated on this matter. Specifically, I expect that compelling evidence will show his categorical denial to be truthful. There will be no cloud over him.

I’ve known Ed for years and have read “Bench Memos” regularly since its inception. He’s a pretty cautious guy, and not prone to wishful thinking. Thus, I was surprised by the boldness of his tweet.

The conventional wisdom among Kavanaugh’s supporters is that this a case of “he said, she said” and that the alleged episode occurred so long ago that evidence doesn’t exist conclusively to prove or disprove Ms. Ford’s allegation. But here was Ed predicting that compelling evidence would vindicate Kavanaugh.

Is Ed basing this prediction on a more detailed and better sourced version of the “mistaken identity” narrative I had picked up? His subsequent tweets suggest to me that he is.

Then, this morning, Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post wrote a column about how mistaken identity is not uncommon in cases like these. Was this column prompted by buzz that the Kavanaugh case is, indeed, one of mistaken identity?

Finally, there is this post by Ramesh Ponnuru. He cites Parker’s column and suggests that Kavanaugh “may be confident that new evidence will emerge that strongly tends to vindicate him.”

I still don’t have an opinion on whether the Kavanaugh case is one of mistaken identity. That’s a possibility, but it’s also possible that the incident didn’t occur at all or in anything like the way Ford describes. And it’s possible that Ford has gotten it right and is telling the truth.

However, some publicly known facts tend to support the mistaken identity theory. I’m thinking of (1) Ford’s failure to remember such details as where the alleged attack took place, (2) Sen. Feinstein’s seeming unwillingness to treat Ford’s story as tight enough to push forward with for months, (3) Ford’s reluctance to testify publicly (or maybe even privately) before the Judiciary Committee, (4) the reported absence of Kavanaugh’s name in the notes of the psychologist with whom she discussed the alleged incident some years back, and (5) Patrick J. Smyth’s denial of Ford’s claim that he was at the party where the assault allegedly took place.

Lack of clarity by Ford about who really attacked her would tend to explain all of the above. I emphasize, however, that such lack of clarity is not the only possible explanation.

For now, let’s just say of the mistaken identity theory: Developing. Maybe.

Note from ghr:   Civilized folks should never forget that the human female animal, whether Ford or Feinstein, is born DITSY!  Although a generalization, she doesn’t give a damn about honesty or the freedoms our American Forefathers dreamed about when they “invented” the human animal’s most civilized laws of order and freedom ever “afforded” Earth’s human animal.

The human female animal craves security….the more fascistic the better, more content, the less challenging, the best!

Two and two don’t mean four to this human female animal when she slips into  her world governed by  feelings swelling her brain.

The human female is born incurious by God’s nature.

As we all know, the human male animal is born to be a killer….the animal within us all!   God is male by human design, reality, and purpose…..THE HUMAN MALE BY INSTINCT SEEKS TRUTH, REALITY, PURPOSE, FOR THE HE, NOT THE SHE IS THE HUMAN PROTECTOR.   SHE IS THE HUMAN ‘MAKER’.

Today’s American feminists are saboteurs of truth and reality…..Dianne Feinstein and Ms. Ford, and the female ditsies in Congress are brainless…..KNOWING NOT THE DAMAGE THEY DO BY ‘THINKING’ AND ‘GOVERNING’, MOUTHING BY EMOTION RATHER THAN KNOWLEDGE!  Their emotings, NOT THEIR INTEREST IN KNOWLEDGE AND SEEKING TRUTH,  run the American Liberal Arts world in college these days.

Unfortunately, the  Jeff Flakes and Ben Sasses join these mechanical fascists of the male and female left….in order to feel good and win the female vote rather than seek and speak Truth.

Sleazy Dianne Feinstein’s sneaky  assault on Judge Kavanaugh should send her to JAIL, if our society were civilized by knowledge rather than feminist hysteria!!!!

Fascists at PBS NewsHour Election Coverage 2016 Working Overtime

Leftist CNN, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, BLOOMBERG, AND Chris Wallace’s  FOX  “news” performers, not reporters, announced  the election results as they came in  that evening nearly all giggly confident of a Crooked Hillary victory!   The most profoundly leftist,   the weepiest, the most stunned, the most elite of these spoiled fascistic news bigots came from PBS…..the Judy Woodruff crowd.   All fascistic nations control their means of communication by “owning” how news is presented to their public.   Human females world-wide including voters in America, generally  don’t oppose fascism, socialism, or communism as a state system of political control whether right or left wing!

Security, NOT any of the traditional  freedoms,  is the human females major concern regarding quality of life.   Feminism’s noise  in America for state- forced equality is proof of this pudding.   Ditsies are not expected to solve problems….they add to them.

 

Deep State, Obama, FBI, Open Borders Destroying America and the American Dream

The Deep State, Obama, and Destroying America

 

On April 22, national security adviser John Bolton said, “It’s Open Season for Foreign Influence Operations.  It’s not just Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin that is trying to influence our elections.  So are communist China and sharia-supremacist Iran.”

Vitriolic hatred of President Trump has sprung America into an Afghanistan-like “state of collapse, civil conflict, ethnic and disintegration locked in a self-perpetuating cycle that may be simply beyond outside resolution.”  An example is California versus America over energy.  California has chosen 100% renewable energy by 2045 when it’s proven that renewable energy doesn’t work on a scalable, affordable basis now or in the coming decades without immense fossil fuel backup and billions in taxpayer subsidies.

Thankfully, the United States embraced fracking, allowing the U.S. to overtake Russia and Saudi Arabia as the world’s number-one oil producer.  Meanwhile, California dooms its economy to poverty for its citizens with higher energy prices and depressed job growth.

This example illustrates that America’s democratic process is under attack, but it’s against each other and not from foreign interference.  Why?  Because if the Democrats take Congress, they will impeach President Trump and don’t have a plan to actually govern.  This is now Venezuelan-style socialism that only wants power.  These people – mostly unserious Democrats – “are vile, disgusting people.  There is no lie they won’t tell, no person they won’t smear to advance their agenda,” as evidenced by the Judge Brett Kavanaugh hearings.

They will return America back to the anemic growth it endured under Obama, and our enemies will only grow more emboldened.  America will go the way of California-type leaders like Tom Steyer and Gavin Newsom plus the lies coming from the #Resistance and #NeverTrump crowd.  Seemingly, this is exactly what the Deep State, the Democrats, establishment Republicans, and President Obama want.

According to Dr. Victor Davis Hanson, the Robert Mueller investigation is a mockery of justice full of Democratic partisans.  It was never intended to root out Russian collusion; instead, it is to take down the duly elected president, his family, and anyone associated with his past life.  Ask yourself, would this sham collusion narrative be happening if Hillary were in the White House?  Of course not.  Hanson is correct when he writes:

No President has ever faced impeachment for supposed wrongdoings alleged to have taken place before he took office.  With effort to go back years, if not decades, into Trump’s business and personal life, we are now in uncharted territory.

We will have a shooting, civil war on our hands if Trump is impeached over an investigation that has never proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump colluded with Russia.  The Democratic Party of Truman, Kennedy, FDR, Scoop Jackson, and Governor Pat Brown is gone.  Back then, Democrats wanted a thriving middle class, single-family homes, great schools to achieve upward mobility, and world-class infrastructure.  Now it’s spying on your political enemies through the unelected intelligence fiefdoms of the Deep State that Trump is trying to destroy.

Issues have come to light revealing the extent of Obama’s troubled presidency and former top officials reckless disregard for unlawfully spying on Trump and thousands of Americans that is destroying America.  Moreover, Obama’s glee at making a nuclear deal with Iran has unleashed Hell on the Middle East by creating a hegemonic Iran.  To illustrate, Politico did an extensive investigative report titled “The Secret Backstory of How Obama Let Hezbollah off the Hook,” because “[a]n ambitious U.S. task force targeting Hezbollah’s billion-dollar criminal enterprise ran headlong into the White House’s desire for a nuclear deal with Iran.”

Additionally, The Atlantic reported that Obama and former high-ranking intelligence officials knew that Iran and al-Qaeda were working together (Hazma, Osama bin Laden’s son, got married in Iran), and more damning was a 19-page document from the 2011 raid in Abbottabad, Pakistan that killed bin Laden, showing that “al-Qaeda and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in Tehran touched on funding and arming the Sunni terror outfit so it could strike at American targets.”  Former CIA director Mike Pompeo “suggested” that this al-Qaeda-Iran pact was an “open secret during the Obama administration.”  Maybe these revelations are why the Deep State, Obama, Democrats, and negligent Republicans are trying to destroy Trump and the Rule of Law. It can certainly justify why Trump de-certified the Iran nuclear deal.

Unfortunately, “Obama did spy on Trump,” according to former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson.  She was also illegally spied on by the Obama administration for writing unflattering stories.  Ms. Attkisson then credibly alleges, “It means U.S. intelligence agencies secretly surveilled at least a half dozen Trump associates.  And those are just the ones we know about.”

Former senior-level Obama officials Susan Rice, James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, and Samantha Power all admitted to reviewing or “unmasking” political figures.  Obama intel agencies were caught “secretly monitoring Congressional conversations while the Obama administration negotiated the Iran nuclear deal.”  Brennan and Clapper were both found lying to Congress in 2013 and 2014.  And Ms. Attkisson is still fighting the Justice Department in a federal lawsuit over hacking her CBS computer, causing CBS to publicly announce:

Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was hacked by “an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions,” confirming Attkisson’s previous revelation of the hacking.

Global intelligence firm Stratfor verified this claim in a September 21, 2010 email:

John Brennan [then an Obama Homeland Security adviser] is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists learning information from inside the beltway sources.

This Deep State behavior grew when the intelligence community “expanded its authority in 2011 so it can monitor innocent U.S. citizens.”  Then, in January 2016, a top-secret inspector general report “found the NSA violated the very laws designed to prevent abuse.”  Also in 2016, Obama officials “searched through intelligence on U.S. citizens a record 30,000 times up from 9,500 in 2013″ during an election year.  Two weeks before the 2016 presidential election, NSA officials before a FISA court hearing overseeing government surveillance “confessed they’d violated privacy safeguards with much greater frequency” than previously admitted.  The presiding judge accused the NSA of “institutional lack of candor and a very serious Fourth Amendment issue.”

If it weren’t for Congressman Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence the public would be in the dark “about the unethical and often illegal behavior of the FBI, CIA, National Security Agency and Department of Justice” under the former administration.  Chairman Nunes also exposed the politicized leak of former NSC director Michael Flynn’s contact with the Russian ambassador in a January 2017 Washington Post column.  Nunes’s investigation further uncovered that Clinton’s campaign paid for an unverified dossier in 2016 from former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele that was used by Obama’s FBI and Justice Department to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) for illegal surveillance on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

What Brennan, Clapper, Rice, and others have done is “monetize access” to classified intelligence for political and private financial gain.  Obama intelligence chiefs – and now the Deep State – weaponized intelligence.  Past and present high-ranking intelligence officials believe that it was correct to revoke Brennan’s security clearances and that others should follow.  These Obama-era officials and current Deep State employees are pursuing political agendas via the anti-Trump media, with the U.S. Department of Justice standing back and doing nothing while America is destroying Trump, the office of the president and the freest, greatest country in the history of mankind.

Google Caught Playing “Soviet Union”! Stalin Would Love Them!

Google’s Foul Play

by Adriana Cohen  at realclearpolitics:

For generations, parents taught children “You can’t believe everything you read.”

Now they ought to teach their offspring they can’t trust everything they search on the internet because Google — run by anti-conservative, anti-Trump elites — is manipulating search results to advance a political agenda.

In a damning new video obtained and released by Breitbart this week, Google’s top executives, including its founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, are heard lamenting the victory of Donald Trump following the 2016 presidential election. Brin kicks off their weekly company meeting by saying the meeting is “probably not the most joyous TGIF we’ve had” and that “most people here are pretty upset and pretty sad.”

Clearly he doesn’t speak for the roughly 63 million Americans who voted for Trump.

Notwithstanding, in the video, co-founder Brin describes Trump’s supporters as fascists and extremists and vows to thwart the rise of populism. He adds that he is “deeply offended” by the Trump’s victory and that the election conflicts with many of Google’s values. Google’s CFO, also saddened by Trump’s win, promises that America’s most highly trafficked search engine will “use the great strength and resources and reach we have to continue to advance really important values.”

Perhaps this could explain why a Google News search on Trump churns out mostly negative stories about the president and his administration. In fact, a media research study conducted PJ Media found that 96 percent of the top 100 search returns on President Trump are from left-wing media outlets. Conservative outlets that would provide voters with a more balanced and positive analysis of the Trump administration are — surprise! — virtually invisible.

How is that possible when every major media outlet on all sides of the political spectrum is covering the Trump administration round the clock?

You don’t need an Ivy League degree to see foul play.

But that’s not all. A newly released email by another Google executive following the 2016 election reveals a get-out-the-vote effort directed toward Latino voters to benefit Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Add to it that during the election, Google was accused of burying information from search queries damaging to its candidate of choice, Hillary Clinton.

And then there’s the boycott of the recent congressional hearing on foreign election interference and digital media bias against conservatives last week. Facebook and Twitter participated. Google did not.

Perhaps America’s top search engine is scrambling to contain the public relations mess it has created — or it’s busy mounting a legal defense.

With the Department of Justice investigating all of the above, that’s probably not a bad idea.

Fraud Robert Mueller Still Conducting Mueller’s Fraud….

Robert Mueller Is an Unconstitutional Check on the President

by Rush Limbaugh of Rush Limbaugh Show:

RUSH: The more this goes on, the more we lose sight of the real abomination that all of this is. This entire investigation that Mueller is conducting is bogus. It is predicated on nothing but a made-up allegation for which no evidence has ever been found or cited, and therefore the investigation should never have begun! If you ask me, we’re now two years into this investigation with Mueller’s phase of it at a year and a half or close to it — 16 months, something like that.

It is simply unacceptable. It ought not be tolerated that a 16-month investigation that itself is the result of the Obama DOJ and FBI planting evidence and creating false claims about people… We don’t know what this is about! What crimes is Donald Trump under investigation for committing? Can somebody tell me? What is the crime Trump’s being investigated for committing? There isn’t one, folks. There is no crime that has been mentioned as the reason for any of this investigation, even that which preceded Mueller starting.

After two years of investigating — when there was no crime to begin with — why does this continue? It has no basis in law to continue. It has no basis in evidence to continue. Exactly what is Robert Mueller investigating Donald Trump for doing? We’ve said this I don’t know how many times. Department of Justice regulations involving a special counsel demand a crime. They require. It isn’t a suggestion! There must have been, in order to appoint a special counsel — there must be — a crime, a crime alleged to have been occurred, and the special counsel is then given a charge, instructions, to investigate that crime.

When Mueller was appointed, no crime was specified. As such, what Mueller is conducting is not even a criminal investigation. We have a special counsel who has been allowed to be set up as essentially an ongoing check and balance on a daily basis of the president of the United States. What Mueller is doing is not mentioned in the Constitution. It’s not specified. It’s not referenced in any way. Our Constitution does not provide a fourth branch of government which does nothing but follow and pass judgment every day on the president of the United States.

He runs the executive branch, and there isn’t a single person in it who has any power over him. Yet Robert Mueller has been set up as the great overseer who has the guillotine, and he can drop it any day he wants and ruin the Trump presidency. Way too many people have accepted this premise. It is unconstitutional. It is extraconstitutional. There is no crime! Now, after two years of an investigation that does not have a crime in it, isn’t it time to shut it down? It never should have begun in the first place.

Every day it continues is a massive fraud. It’s a massive fraud, and it’s an assault on the Constitution — not to mention the Trump presidency and the executive branch — and it is being sponsored and energized and conducted by underlings in the executive branch at the Department of Justice primarily with friends and associates in the FBI working with accomplices in the mainstream media to continue the illusion that some vast crime has occurred here and we just need to keep looking to find it.

Well, that’s not how it works! No special counsel is given the job and told, “Go find a crime,” except this one, except Robert Mueller. It is not a criminal investigation. That’s why there will not be an impeachment. Well, I can’t say that. I mean, we’re talking politics here. There will not be an indictment of the president of the United States. There is no crime. (interruption) No, I know. No, there was an allegation that Trump colluded with Russia. Well, collusion isn’t a crime, and we’ve gone blue in the face saying so.

But that’s not even what is being looked at anymore, because if it were, we would have heard evidence ’cause nobody can stop leaking. We would have had all kinds of evidence and the media would be doing orgasm after orgasm after orgasm if there were really any proof that its happened. But it didn’t! So why is this continuing? It is continuing because it is what it is. It is a coup — and now with that New York Times op-ed, it’s not silent. It is an out-in-the-open, admitted-to coup to get rid of Donald Trump.

It proceeds without any legality. It proceeds without any substantial foundation to it. There’s no reason for the Mueller investigation. There is no justifiable reason for Robert Mueller to have an office and a team of anti-Trump investigators with an unlimited budget to go run around and keep ruining people’s lives and threatening to ruin the lives of others in order to get somebody to pop up and say, “Yeah, they know Trump cheated because he colluded with Russia.” They haven’t even been able to find anybody to do that yet.

There isn’t anybody willing to be paid enough to lie about it. The best they’ve got is Bob Woodward and Omarosa whatever her name is. They don’t have jack! But stop and think. We don’t even… There isn’t even an answer to a simple question: What is Trump being investigated for? Don’t tell me, “He’s being investigated for colluding with Russia,” because he’s not. They’re hoping to find evidence of that, but they haven’t been able to because it didn’t happen! There is no crime Donald Trump is alleged to have committed here!

Meanwhile, we have the Obama Justice Department and the FBI corrupting themselves left and right to try to create the illusion that some crime has taken place here. The thing is, this has been going on for so long that people just accept it. Despite the abomination that it is. Despite the illegality that surrounds it and defines it. Despite the literal unconstitutionality of it. Despite the pure bogus intent, which is to drive a president out of office and to overturn or nullify the results of the 2016 election. It’s been going on so long that people have ceased looking at it — if they ever did — for what it really is.

But nowhere in our Constitution does it say that we can appoint some guy to sit in daily, permanent judgment of a sitting president and to have at his disposal a guillotine to end that presidency. That’s what Robert Mueller is, and I keep hearkening back. We keep hearing, “Mueller is a man of deep integrity, unchallengeable honor.” I don’t believe it. If he were, none of this would have been happening, and he would have rejected it. If he really cared about the law? If all these people really cared about the law as the backbone of our society, our country and justice and the rule of law?

If they really believed it, this thing would have never gotten off the ground, and after it did, they would have shut it down. The fact that it continues is evidence that it is purely 1,000% political. It’s occurring outside the system of justice in this country. It is not warranted. It is not justified. But as I say, the longer it goes on, the less people become sensitive to what it really is and just end up accepting it. That’s why I think it’s horrible what’s happening. Mueller is just running roughshod right through the Constitution, right through the office of the presidency.

For a bunch of totalitarian authoritarians and those leaning that way like the Democrats are, a precedent like this whenever there’s a Republican president, they live and die for it. If you can get a special counsel appointed when there is no crime, then you can do it again the next time there’s a Republican president. It will never happen when there is a Democrat president. Even with clear-cut evidence that crimes are being or have been committed, it will never happen with a Democrat president. So we have a two-tiered system of justice which destroys our system of justice.

RUSH: Here’s Jim in Eagleswood, New Jersey. This is a good point, Jim. I’m glad you called to remind me of this. What’s up?

CALLER: Mr. Limbaugh, I know my time is limited but let me just tell you that next to the birth of my children, this is one of the biggest moments of my life. You are a true American. But I fear that you have fallen into a trap that has been perpetuated on most of the talk shows in this country —

RUSH: Ah, ah. Be very, very, very careful before you include me in that bunch.

CALLER: (laughing) I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

RUSH: Because what did I say when I introduced you? “I’m glad you called to remind me, because I myself have said what you’re gonna say.” I could have said, “I don’t need the call. I’ve already said it.” But you’ve been on hold a long time, and I wanted to reward you —

CALLER: Thank you.

RUSH: — by giving you the opportunity to say it. So say it.
CALLER: The trap is this. Bob Mueller has no intention whatsoever to ever try President Trump for anything because — you’ve talked about it all morning — there is nothing. There are no witnesses. There is no collusion. The only collusion exists between him and the news media to make us think that he’s going after Donald Trump. He is purely cleaning up the mess since the Clintons have basically been in office.

RUSH: Well, that’s 95% true. If they can find something in all this that they could use to send Trump packing, they would do it. But you’re right.

CALLER: There’s nothing there.

RUSH: What this really is — and I’ve said this. This is why I’m glad that you called. What this actually is is a cover-up of the exoneration of Hillary Clinton from real crimes that she committed. These people exonerated her in order to make sure she would remain the Democrat nominee. They did that so that she could get elected president and they would stay in their positions or gain others, and the whole point of this investigation is to cover up the crimes that Hillary committed was and exonerated for and these people’s participation and role in that.

CALLER: They’re cleaning up Obama’s mess. They’re cleaning up the Iranian billions. They’re cleaning up Russian uranium. They’re cleaning up… No, they’re cleaning up 20 years’ worth of crap, and that’s how long it takes Mueller… You think Hillary Clinton erased a lot of emails? Wait ’til you find out what Bob Mueller erased, because here’s the trick: They do not care that you know they’re guilty, they care what you can prove, and this is history since Arkansas. They don’t care that you know they’re criminals. They just care what you can and can’t prove, and that’s the uranium.

RUSH: I know that. Nothing has gotten past me. I was trying to illustrate all this by pointing out that there isn’t a crime that Trump has committed. There’s in justification for this whatsoever. But the longer it goes on, people just accept that it’s part of politics in Washington now, to have a guy like this who’s gonna be riding herd on Republican presidents each day — and Mueller is not going away, by the way, as long as Trump’s in office.

If Trump runs in 2020 and gets reelected — and if Mueller hasn’t been dispatched or fired or shut down — he’s still gonna be there, because the objective of this is to get rid of Donald Trump. Do not think that’s not part of this. This is a two-pronged effort. Get rid of Trump and to cover up what these people did, exonerating Hillary. That is so important in this, folks. Hillary Clinton committed real crimes, crimes for which others who’ve been convicted are in prison. They revolve around her illegal private server and the trafficking of classified, top-secret data.

And the president of the United States was doing so with her, knowingly, even though he has lied and said he didn’t know she was using a private server until he saw it on the news. But that’s not true because her email address did not have .gov on the end of it. It was a private email. He knew. They all knew. So it was time to get in gear. Whether it was Trump or anybody, they would still have done what they’re doing. They had to exonerate Hillary Clinton.

She was the Democrat nominee. That was preordained. Crazy Bernie was blowing against the wind here. No matter what he did, he wasn’t gonna get the nomination. She was it. She had committed crimes. All of them were on her team. They wanted to maintain their jobs or get promotions. She had to be cleared. She had to be exonerated by the highest authorities in the land, and they set out to do that. Comey officially made it happen on July 5th of 2016 and then reaffirmed it later on in October of that year.

So everything that was done to exonerate Hillary is being covered up in this investigation (so-called) of Trump for which there is no crime being pursued; there was no crime specified. Donald Trump has not committed a crime. Hillary Clinton committed many, and not just the server. The crimes that Hillary Clinton committed in dealing with Russians and Christopher Steele and collecting all this so-called opposition research on Trump, and the potential criminality of lying to FISA court judges in order to get warrants to spy on people who were not spies.

And then the question becomes… Everybody’s asking, “Why aren’t the FISA judges ticked off? They’ve been lied to! The FBI, these people went up there and lied to ’em.” What if the FISA judges are in on it? What if they don’t care? We’re talking about the Washington swamp. There’s a lot of things that don’t have any rational explanation. And when that happens, that’s when people start conjuring up weird stuff. In the real world, a judge who is lied to by any lawyer to get a search warrant or worse, that lawyer is in heap big trouble once the judge finds out he’s been lied to.

Well, these FISA judges were obviously lied to, and they may have taken action against these lawyers that we don’t know about. But because we don’t know it, if they have, we’re left to assume that everybody involved in this got away with it and continues to get away with it, and the Mueller investigation is to ensure that they do get away with it! So I have no doubt that that’s what this is about. But there’s also a large part of it that’s getting rid of Trump at the same time. It would be a twofer. But just because there’s no crime and just because there’s no this or that doesn’t mean that they’re not really trying to get rid of Donald Trump, because they most certainly are.

 

RUSH: Donald in Orange County, California. Quickly, how are you doing, sir?

CALLER: Hi, Trump! (laughing) I mean, hi, Rush. Hey. Listen. Hillary did not erase the emails. She kept copies of the incriminating emails that she has on everybody and that’s why they all are protecting her. It’s the only thing that make sense. Democrats, Republicans, DOJ, FBI. They have to protect her to keep her silent. She has the proof. She’s not stupid. She kept it. She did not erase it. That’s the point I want to make.

RUSH: Wait, wait, wait. Proof of what?
CALLER: In other words, everybody going through that server. Every dirty deal that went down came through that server. They all thought she’d gonna get the reelected, nothing would ever come out. But when it didn’t and she did not erase it. She’s not stupid. She kept incriminating evidence from anybody and all the emails, all of the payoffs. Everything went through that server. So now it’s the only thing that makes sense. Why do they all…? Ray Charles can see that she committed crimes. They won’t do anything ’cause she has proof and she can put ’em all in jail. That’s what’s going on, I believe.

RUSH: I find this fascinating. What this is is a holdover. People of a certain age have this impression of the Clintons. When they were in office, there was this story that they had 500 FBI files on people. Members of Congress, Republicans, members of the media. They were blackmailing people left and right. That’s how they got away with everything. This sounds like a continuation of that.

They’ve moved on from 500 FBI files to every bit of dirt that anybody in the Obama administration ever did. Hillary’s got it in her emails. She didn’t erase ’em, and she can nail anybody any time she wants. So they’ve gotta go to the end of the earth to protect her. I don’t think that’s what’s going on. If it were, I wouldn’t be surprised, but I think there’s much more happening here than that.

Mark Steyn on the Clash of Cultures, 21st Century

 

Danes, Davos and Denial

by Mark Steyn  at Jewish World Review:

A quarter-century ago this summer, Samuel Huntington published the first version of what would become his book The Clash of Civilizations. I’ve quoted it many times over the years, not least its passages on what Huntington called “Islam’s bloody borders”. The man himself has been dead a decade now, and so on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his famous thesis it falls to Francis Fukuyama, Huntington’s former pupil and author of The End of History, to do the honors:

Since Samuel Huntington’s Clash of Civilizations has been contrasted with my own End of History in countless introductory International Relations classes over the past two decades, I might as well begin by tackling at the outset the issue of how we’re doing vis-à-vis one another. At the moment, it looks like Huntington is winning.

That’s big of him, all things considered. Fukuyama has attempted to modify his thesis over the years but it doesn’t get any sounder: He argued a book or two back that democratic societies were all trying to “get to Denmark”, but, if you’ve actually set foot in Denmark recently, you might be inclined to think that the challenge for Danes is to figure out a way to get back to Denmark. Elsewhere in Scandinavia, it’s easier to imagine Sweden getting to Sudan than Sudan getting to Sweden. Huntington discerned a lot of this, as Fukuyama concedes:

Huntington was very prescient in his depiction of “Davos Man,” the cosmopolitan creature unmoored from strong attachments to any particular place, loyal primarily to his own self-interest. Davos Man has now become the target of populist rage, as the elites who constructed our globalized world are pilloried for being out of touch with the concerns of the working class. Huntington also foresaw the rise of immigration as one of the chief issues driving populism and the fears that mass migration has stoked about cultural change. Indeed, Carlos Lozada of the Washington Post has labeled Huntington as a prophet of the Trump era.

“The fears that mass migration has stoked about cultural change” is a coy way of sidling up to the way I put it in America Alone – that culture trumps economics. Pakistanis came to Yorkshire because the mills needed workers. The mills closed anyway, but the workers stayed, and built their mosques and madrassahs. Today, as I mentioned on Tucker’s show a few weeks back, automation (and predictions that it will eliminate 30 per cent of all jobs) ends any economic rationale for mass immigration. That leaves little else to justify it except virtue-signaling. Which is more than enough, judging by the hysteria that greets anybody who seriously questions demographically transformative immigration policies. Fukuyama isn’t quite ready to concede the cultural point to Huntington, and attempts instead to sidestep it:

Identity is a much broader and more flexible concept with which to understand contemporary politics rather than religiously based culture or civilizations. Identity is the modern concept that arises out of the belief that one has a hidden inner self whose dignity is at best being ignored or at worst being disparaged by the surrounding society. Identity politics revolves around demands not for materials goods or resources, but for recognition of the dignity of one’s ethnicity, religion, nation, or even one’s unique characteristics as an individual…

Many of the young European Muslims who left the countries of their birth to fight for the Islamic State in Syria were trapped between two cultures, the traditional one defined by the piety of their parents, and the secular Western one in which they were brought up… Seeing the same phenomena through an identity lens rather than through the lens of religiously based culture better conforms to today’s realities… [In America] there was the constant emergence of new identities: not just gays and lesbians, but transgender and intersex people.

He has half a point here. Yes, many young western Muslims, the children and grandchildren of comparatively assimilated immigrants, choose a global Islamic “identity” for themselves. Likewise, many secular westerners choose one of the exciting and ever multiplying array of sexual “identities”. But it seems to me that both these phenomena are at least partly responses to the assault we have waged on our own culture and civilization this past half-century. Who wants to identify with a culture that reviles its own past, that blames itself for everything, that demolishes its statuary and denounces its greatest figures and insists that, while multiculturalism posits the equal value of all cultures, if you have to pick a villain pick the culture that built the modern world? In the void of modern western identity, people look elsewhere: Some find the new one-size-fits-all Islam, others find “intersexuality”.

In the end, however, one of these is real, and the other isn’t. And in those societies where the one buts up against the other (Denmark, say) the one that is real will one day steamroller the other. Samuel Huntington grasped the obvious; Francis Fukuyama is still trying to tap-dance around it.
