Crooked Hillary Backed by Crooked FBI during 2016 Presidential Election

Commentary: For Trump supporters, DOJ IG report amounts to “Told ya so”

by Michael Graham at CBS News:

The new Justice Department inspector general’s report on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email scandal is 568 pages long, but for Trump supporters it can be reduced to a single phrase:

“Told ya so.”

For months, Team Trump has claimed that the Department of Justice under Barack Obama was motivated by politics when it came to investigating Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.  And while some on the Right have stretched that premise out to the “Deep State Conspirators Use UFO Tech To Erase DOJ Data” extreme, the IG report makes it clear that the Loretta Lynch/James Comey/Andrew McCabe DOJ and FBI were far too often motivated by crass partisanship rather than the pursuit of justice.

The report called the actions of two officials “antithetical to the core values” of the FBI and DOJ in this excerpt:

When one senior FBI official, (Peter) Strzok, who was helping to lead the Russia investigation at the time, conveys in a text message to another senior FBI official, (Lisa) Page, that ‘we’ll stop’ candidate Trump from being elected — after other extensive text messages between the two disparaging candidate Trump — it is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects [emphasis added]. This is antithetical to the core values of the FBI and the Department of Justice.

There was also this exchange between FBI employees supposedly practicing impartial law enforcement:

10:51:48, FBI Attorney 2: “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently [regarding Clinton investigation].”
10:54:29, FBI Employee: “Don’t stress. None of that mattered.”
10:54:31, FBI Employee: “The FBI’s influence.”
10:59:36, FBI Attorney 2: “I don’t know. We broke the momentum.”
11:00:03, FBI Employee: “That is not so.”
11:02:22, FBI Employee: “All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out. Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing [emphasis added]They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.”

It goes downhill from there.

Opponents of the president and many in the mainstream media have largely dismissed this notion of an FBI corrupted by partisanship. Much of the media coverage has focused, not on the bad behavior by James Comey, but instead on Trump’s (often over-the-top) criticisms of the FBI, the Justice Department and Special Counsel Rober Mueller.

And that in itself is additional proof of the Trump-supporters’ primary premise that the institutions they are told they should trust—government, media, academia—are no longer trustworthy. Otherwise, how could they ignore such a juicy tale of corruption and scandal?

Start at the beginning: Hillary Clinton, with her history of problematic ethics, becomes secretary of state and, during her tenure, her family simultaneously ran an international foundation that collected hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign governments and businesses. As she’s on her way out the door after four years in office, it’s discovered she was doing classified government business on a personal email with a homebrew server—literally in her basement—and thousands of her emails were “disappeared” using a high-tech firm’s “Bleach Bit” technology.

And that’s just the prequel. Imagine where Shonda Rhimes could go from there.

Actually even Rhimes probably wouldn’t have the audacity to put Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac at the height of the investigation, or allow an FBI agent who literally pledged to stop Donald Trump from becoming president to oversee his case.

FBI agents getting meals, drinks and tickets to sporting events from reporters? Agents sending “vive la resistance” messages making oversight decisions in Trump’s case? Not to mention the new revelation of the 26-year-old New York Times reporter engaged in a romantic relationship with a 57-year-old Senate Intelligence Committee staffer—one of the committees overseeing the RussiaGate probe.

Plot twists like these would be laughed out of a script meeting.

Reading the IG report, one can imagine a MAGA hat-wearing Greek chorus in the background chanting, “If a Republican had done this…..”  Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican former prosecutor who has been defending the DOJ and decried attacks on the FBI, raises that very point in his response:

“The treatment afforded to former Secretary Clinton and other potential subjects and targets was starkly different from the FBI’s investigation into Trump campaign officials. Voluntariness and consent in the former were replaced with search warrants, subpoenas, and other compulsory processes in the latter. Many of the investigators and supervisors were the same in both investigations but the investigatory tactics were not.”

In other words, the premise that motivated so many Trump supporters is proven true: The DC Establishment really was out to get Trump.

The actions of the FBI or DOJ may, in the end, be defensible. No legal line may have been crossed.  But for people who elected Donald Trump because they felt like their government viewed them as a problem to be solved and not as citizens to be served, the IG report confirms what they’ve feared all along.

Democrats’ Rotten Odors Circulating in Minnesota

Will the Court Tell Secretary of State Steve Simon to Stop Hiding Election Records?

Dear Friends,

The Minnesota Voters Alliance (MVA) is asking everyone to consider attending one of the most important court hearings in decades involving the Secretary of State’s cover-up of the public voter data needed to evaluate our elections.

The hearing will be held on Friday, June 22, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. in Ramsey County District Court, Courtroom 1570, 15 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul, MN 55102.

MVA v Secretary of State Steve Simon is a landmark case involving the Secretary’s refusal to provide the public with full voting information on every voter (as the law requires), so the public can effectively evaluate the Secretary of State’s performance and determine the true amount of ineligible voting in Minnesota.

Our goal in this litigation is to finally pry loose the data needed to understand:

  • How more than 26,000 persons marked challenged on the polling rosters, were permitted to vote in 2016, according to the recent report by the Office of the Legislative Auditor (OLA). The OLA examined only a small sub-set of those 26,000, namely 612, and determined only 19 of them to be eligible.
  • Why there were over 16,000 new registrants in 2016 who identified themselves using the last four digits of a Social Security Numberbut could not be found in the Social Security Administration database. You can look up the statistics yourself at https://www.ssa.gov/open/havv/
  • How more than 6,000 registrants in Ramsey County alone failed the “address check” following the 2016 election.
  • And, how more than 2,800individuals are recorded as having voted twice in the same election according to the limited data available from the Secretary’s office.

You’d think that the Secretary would feel duty-bound to examine these known indications that tens of thousands of potentially ineligible persons voted in the 2016 general election. And, absent doing his own analyzing of the state election data, you’d think he would welcome outside efforts to do so.  Instead, the Secretary goes to tremendous legal lengths to obstruct the public’s attempts to analyze both the amount of ineligible voting and election officials’ performance in preventing it.

See MVA’s editorial in Sunday’s St. Paul Pioneer Press. 

We think you will enjoy watching MVA attorney Erick Kaardal battle the state’s Nathan Hartshorn.
If you plan to attend the hearing, please click here to let us know you’ll be joining us.  (Invite a friend or two!)

Hope to see you in Ramsey County District Court on Friday!

Should Christopher Wray Be Removed as IG for STILL Hiding Hillary FBI Gang Crimes?

I looked forward to this evening’s current FBI Director Christopher Wray’s  TV performance regarding the agency’s corruption among its leaders to secure the victory of notoriously crooked Hillary Clinton in her drive to defeat GOP candidate Donald J. Trump in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.   Such conspiracies are usually confined  to fascist police state dictatorships rather than in our America.

I was hoping to hear a proper confession from Wray regarding modern FBI sins,  not the  burp of pretense from his presentation…..the pretense a few FBI folks made a mistake or two communicating their disdain for folks unHillary like and conspired to do something about it……

Citizen FBI Director Wray,   announces below his cleansing solution proudly and loudly.  He will direct for the future that ALL FBI personnel from top to bottom will be trained, indoctrinated into proper FBI “protocol” in the future….

Yet, there is no proof whatsoever that any but the top elite of the FBI itself, from then Director James Comey  and  at least a half dozen more the FBI ELITES who gathered to  corrupt the 2016 Presidential election with  FBI power to  guarantee the White House  for CROOKED HILLARY no matter what!

It was only a matter of time that our post-JudeoChristian America’s FBI might become as corrupt as the nation’s leftist  universities, schools, newspapers, and television industry, and the disappearance of so many American families.

Christopher Wray, however, performed for the most part as a functionary,  an excuse maker avoiding the damage done to today’s FBI truly devoted honest Americans who still believe in the glory of Truth over Evil.

Yet, I did notice a quiver or two on his face while lecturing to the public suggesting FBI bureaucratic superiority,  that he knew a cancerous tumor had been removed from the patient he and his fellow workers loved before the Hillary affair.

What do you think?

 

 

Mr. Downer, Please! More Grease in the FBI Frying Pan!

THE CURIOUS CASE OF MR. DOWNER

by  Scott Johnson   at  PowerLine:

Kim Strassel’s weekly Wall Street Journal column looks into “The curious case of Alexander Downer.” Downer is the former Australian ambassador to the United Kingdom whose conversation with George Papadopoulos in London supposedly led to the counterintelligence investigation that culminated in the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to torment President Trump. Downer thus lies at the heart of one of the origin stories — perhaps the key origin story — of the synthetic Trump-Russia collusion hysteria.

Strassel isn’t buying the story. She concludes:

For months we’ve been told the FBI acted because it was alarmed that Mr. Papadopoulos knew about those hacked Democratic emails in May, before they became public in June. But according to the tipster himself, Mr. Papadopoulos said nothing about emails. The FBI instead received a report that a far-removed campaign adviser, over drinks, said the Russians had something that might be “damaging” to Hillary. Did this vague statement justify a counterintelligence probe into a presidential campaign, featuring a spy and secret surveillance warrants?

Unlikely. Which leads us back to what did inspire the FBI to act, and when? The Papadopoulos pretext is getting thinner.

We are swimming in lies, in falsity, in deceit. This is really getting old.

Obama Knew of the Spying on the Trump Campaign

Of Course, Obama Knew of the Spying on the Trump Campaign

by Bruce Bialosky  at Jewish World Review:

The earth-shattering story that the MSM has attempted in all regards to ignore that then-existing Administration was spying on a presidential campaign broke a couple weeks ago and the spy has now been identified. The logical end question has now been asked — Did President Obama know that his spying agencies had infiltrated the Trump campaign? The unequivocal answer is YES.

Do I have definitive proof that Obama knew? No. And we never will because Valerie Jarrett kept him away from the parties at hand. But I base my conclusion on 40 years of doing this and eight years of studying the Obama Administration and their disregard for the norms that had been established before them due to their thirst to thrust their ideological platform on the American people.

There are four principle reasons why the Obama team thought they could get away with spying on Trump:

  1. The fawning press would never question them. They had gone through more than eight years of the press tripping over each other lauding their actions, so why would the press question them now?
  2. Their prior actions (which are delineated below) went by with meager questioning and virtually no accusations of impropriety.
  3. They assumed Hillary was going to win and thus the improper actions would never be reviewed. They had to go to Plan B on this once she lost and accuse Trump and his people of gross negligence and then their spying on Trump would be buried in the hysteria regarding Russian Collusion.
  4. The biggest, boldest reason was the Black Card. The Obama Administration had used this so many times it became de rigueur. The whimpering press would never question the Black President, the Black Attorney General nor the Black White House Adviser because of their white guilt. This is a form of reverse racism. If you did question them you would automatically be branded a racist. In fact, me just pointing this out opens me up to being branded by the Obama acolytes as a racist.

By the time 2016 came around, Obama was already emboldened by the factors above and they had tested it on:

  1. The IRS/Tea Party scandal.
  2. Benghazi where four Americans were killed, and no one was ever held accountable despite the lies.
  3. The Veteran’s Administration Scandal where our soldiers died with no responsibility.
  4. Fast and Furious where Obama/Holder gave guns to Mexican gangs.
  5. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that was established as separately funded from Congress and then went off and did illegal activities such as pursuing car dealer loans despite being specifically precluded from that.
  6. Bill Clinton meeting on the tarmac with Attorney General Lynch that was clearly improper over which someone should have resigned.
  7. The fact that the number two person at the FBI could not figure out that his wife taking $700,000 from a high-level Democratic operative was the definition of conflict of interest.
  8. More and More and More.

When did the press ever bring these people to task? Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress and now he is thinking of running for president. President Obama stated there was “not a smidgen of corruption” with the IRS scandal, but if you asked all the people who were never able to form their entities they might think differently.

On the way out the door, Valerie Jarrett stated about President Obama: “He prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself.” When there are assertions like this that largely go undisputed by the press, you really wonder what planet everybody was on during these eight years. Yet Jake Tapper can question the current president as to his lies.

Obama kept himself, on the face of it, insulated from any of the misdeeds of his administration, but does anyone believe he did not know Holder was illegally selling those guns in Fast and Furious? Yet, Holder did not resign. Does anyone believe Obama did not know Lynch was meeting Clinton on the tarmac? Yet she did not resign.

There was virtually nothing the Obama team could say or do that got them in trouble for eight years. Obviously, they knew what was going on with the invasion of the Trump campaign. What is to question except for once again they will be let off the hook?

Nothing Like the Joy of Socialism….From Stalin to Mao, to Zinn and Chomsky, to Venezuela

SOCIALISM’S VICTORY TOUR

by John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

The liberal press tells us that socialism is ascendant. College students, apparently, are largely socialists. And some think that Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, etc. are dominant, no matter how stupid they may be.

I can’t explain why so many American liberals don’t care whether socialism works. Maybe liberals are just dumb. Perhaps there is another explanation that I can’t think of. But happily, most people care about what works.

Michael Ramirez comments on the ongoing disaster that is Venezuela. You know when you are living in a socialist country when there are no more pets, because they have been eaten. Also, no more rats: people fight over their dead carcasses, hoping for a main course for dinner. That is the context of Michael’s most recent cartoon. Click to enlarge:

(Note by ghr)  There is always the Soviet Union to review…..but most Americans at today’s University under age 50 whether student or ‘professor’ possess no knowledge of  the meaning of “words”  the Soviet Union, or USSR, or Stalin…much less Pol Pot or Chairman Mao much less their history.

 

CROOKED HILLARY CALLS ELECTORAL COLLEGE “Troubling”

Ms. “Mouth with Evil Brain”, Crooked Hillary Roddham Clinton chastises our American Forefathers’ wisdom for placing   our Nation’s Presidential elections on an Electoral Count rather than the national numerical count.

The United States of America would never have been established without an Electoral College count.  The majority of its states would not have allowed it.

By today’s American population….not counting California’s 4,000,000 non citizen illegals who voted for Crooked Hillary that November 8, 2016, Presidential candidates could, would need only to compete in twelve of the 51 “states” in the Union (when one includes the District of Columbia’s 3 electoral votes).   Today’s California is a Leftist to Fascist  Sanctuary State playing games with the rest of the Nation.   Crooked Hillary according to Sanctuary State California voter count, beat President Trump by 4,500,000, in New York State by Democrat Party count 1,500,000, Illinois by a million, New Jersey by 700,000 giving her  nearly eight million vote (legal and illegal) lead from only four states.   Why would presidential candidates bother to campaign in the 40 states with smaller  populations?  Racketeering as in California would compete with Venezuela’s recent “Presidential” election style.   Fascist establishment folk determine the vote count   both legal and the millions of illegal as would  Crooked Hillary, decide which votes will be counted and which ones disappear.    Please read the following recent Crooked Hillary  complaint about the Electoral College:
