CNN’s Robert Mueller’s FBI Fascists Attack, Arrest, Release a Roger Stone

ROGER STONE’S ARREST: WHAT’S SCANDALOUS, AND WHAT ISN’T

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

Let’s start with what isn’t scandalous: the charges against Roger Stone. Scott embedded Robert Mueller’s indictment hereByron York has a good summary of the charges.

The salient point is that Mueller’s indictment of Stone confirms that the Trump campaign had nothing to do with the theft of emails from the Democratic National Committee or their publication by Wikileaks. The allegations against Stone all have to do with what happened after Wikileaks dumped the first batch of DNC emails. Stone tried–unsuccessfully–to get in touch with Julian Assange or someone else who could tell him whether Wikileaks had more emails, and if so, what they contained. As Byron points out, everyone in the political world, in the Summer of 2016, was trying to find out whether Wikileaks had more DNC emails, and if so, what they contained.

There is nothing wrong with what Stone did. Mueller charges, rather, that Stone lied to a Congressional committee about his actions. If that is true, Stone is in trouble. But the charges against him do not support the theory that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to invade the DNC’s email system. On the contrary, the Stone story is just more confirmation that the Trump campaign had nothing to do with it.

Now, for what is truly scandalous about Roger Stone’s arrest: the manner in which it was carried out. The arrest was preserved on video because someone–presumably either the FBI or Mueller’s team–tipped off CNN, and CNN had cameras stationed in front of Stone’s residence at 5:00 in the morning. The video shows a dozen heavily armed FBI agents carrying out what can fairly be described as a paramilitary operation against Stone’s home. Why? Was there some reason to think Stone was so dangerous that it required a pre-dawn raid by a dozen agents with AR-15s to take him into custody?

No such claim has been made, nor would it be plausible. The show that Mueller and the FBI put on for the cameras of their political ally, CNN, was a disgrace. Here it is:

A few years ago, I couldn’t have imagined saying this, but the FBI has proved to be corrupt and hopelessly politicized. It needs, at a minimum, a thorough housecleaning. It might even be necessary to put the FBI out of business and start over with a new federal investigative agency.

America’s Democrat-Controlled Fascist, Atheistic, Feminazi Press Working Overtime by Smearing, Threatening Christian Teens at Lincoln Memorial Site

A PATTERN EMERGES

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

Is Nathan Phillips, the American Indian who tried to intimidate Covington Catholic students by banging a drum in their faces, an anti-Catholic bigot? That’s how it looks. It turns out that the day after the March For Life, Phillips and a gang of followers tried to disrupt a service at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington:

While chanting and playing ceremonial drums, a group of Native American rights activists reportedly led by Nathan Phillips attempted Jan. 19 to enter Washington, D.C.’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception during a Saturday evening Mass.

The group of 20 demonstrators was stopped by shrine security as it tried to enter the church during its 5:15 pm Vigil Mass, according to a shrine security guard on duty during the Mass.

“It was really upsetting,” the guard told CNA.

“There were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.”

The guard said the incident was a disappointment during a busy and joyful weekend for the shrine.

“We had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country come here to celebrate life, to celebrate each other together. That a protest tried to come inside during Mass was really the worst.”

Phillips’ attempted invasion of the Basilica was much like his invasion of the group of Covington Catholic kids who were minding their own business, waiting for a bus.

Video footage showed one supporter saying that the group had gathered at the shrine to listen to Phillips, and to hold the Catholic Church “accountable” for the alleged actions of the Covington Catholic students and for the “colonial violence that the Catholic Church reproduces every day.”

A photograph attached to the post shows Phillips addressing the group outside the shrine.

There you have it. Bigotry was indeed on display at the March For Life, and after. It came from the blacks who harassed the Covington Catholic kids for over an hour, calling them “faggots” and worse, and from Nathan Phillips, who attacked Catholics wherever he found them. Against this background of bigotry, the Covington Catholic kids are to be commended for keeping their cool and smiling through it all.

The Terror in Pittsburgh!

THOUGHTS ON THE SYNAGOGUE SHOOTINGS

by John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

Can we learn any lessons from the horrific Pittsburgh synagogue murders? Maybe. Improved security at places of worship may be necessary (and no, calling for better security is not “blaming the victim.”) Attorney General Jeff Sessions has filed federal hate crime charges against Robert Bowers. This strikes me as symbolic and pointless. Murder is a state crime and state and local authorities are perfectly capable of prosecuting and punishing it. Or used to be, anyway.

Hans Bader agrees with President Trump’s call for a more effective death penalty. I have no problem with that, although, as Hans notes, carrying out an execution requires navigating such a thicket of constitutional constraints that it may be impossible, as a practical matter, for execution to become reliable and swift enough to be a more effective deterrent.

What I don’t understand is, why is Robert Bowers still alive? He killed eleven people and engaged in a shootout with police officers, wounding four of them. He obviously was using deadly force, and the police were fully justified in applying deadly force in response. If they had simply kept firing until there was zero chance of his remaining a danger, we wouldn’t have to worry about a criminal prosecution, and Bowers wouldn’t be given a megaphone to make his twisted views public for years to come.

Anti-Lefty Pipe Builder Caught….No One Hurt, THANK GOD!

Bombing Suspect Claimed He Didn’t Want To Hurt Anyone, But FBI Director Says He Could Have

 

CNN is reporting that bomb-making suspect Cesar Sayoc was initially cooperating with investigators and told them he didn’t intend to hurt anyone. However, officials say that while tests are still being done these were not “hoax devices.”

Sayoc was initially somewhat cooperative, the official said. He told investigators that the pipe bombs wouldn’t have hurt anyone and that he didn’t want to hurt anyone.

Sayoc has now retained a lawyer so the questioning has ceased, the official said.

All of this stems from the fact that none of the bombs went off. There were multiple stories yesterday that at least some of the bombs were incapable of detonating. That led to some speculation that perhaps this was by design, i.e. maybe these were “hoax bombs” intended to scare people but not actually harm them. But at a press conference today FBI Director Christopher Wray said the devices were not “hoax bombs.” From CNN:

“Though we’re still analyzing the devices in our laboratory, these are not hoax devices,” he said.

The devices consisted of “roughly six inches of PVC pipe, a small clock, a battery, some wiring and what is known as energetic material, which is essentially potential explosives and material that give off heat and energy through a reaction to heat, shock or friction,” Wray said

Wray also said, “As far as the devices themselves, it’s important to say, as is in the complaint, that even if the devices—and we’re still trying to determine whether or not they were functional, as they say, so we’re doing all kinds of analysis on that to make a definitive determination, but they did contain energetic material which, if subjected to the right combination of heat, or shock, or friction, could be dangerous to the public.”

I’m hearing a bit of a mixed message. On the one hand, there’s no doubt there was material inside these that could have exploded. So they aren’t hoaxes in the sense of an empty pipe with wires would have been a hoax. On the other hand, it’s still not clear that any of these was actually capable of blowing up intentionally. They had timers but those weren’t connected to opening the packages. So there may yet be an element of theater to these devices even while it’s true that the bombs really could blow up under the right circumstances. Again, that’s how it looks at this moment based on contradictory stories, but it could look different when the FBI releases more info.

I think it’s also possible some of this is about protecting the case. If the FBI director were to suggest these bombs were all duds, no doubt Sayoc’s defense attorney would cite that as a mitigating factor in his eventual trial.

We’ll have to wait and see what their analysis concludes but for now the suspect’s claim that he didn’t want to hurt anyone is undercut by the fact that he sent explosive material all around the country.

https://hotair.com/archives/2018/10/26/bombing-suspect-claimed-didnt-want-hurt-anyone/

P.S.  I owe the George Soros crowd an apology.   It had seemed quite obvious that his devious politics were responsible for arousing leftist fascists to make certain their savages would win the coming November 6th national elections.  That none of the bombs bombed meant no one was meant to be  injured.  It seemed, therefore, lefties merely wanted their fellow lefties STAR as Captains Courageous in the nation’s overwhelmingly lefty press!!

Feminists (Feminazis?) on the March!

Protesters Climb Capitol Steps In Symbolic Act Of Defiance, Get Arrested

By the time this post goes up Judge Kavanaugh will likely have been confirmed so consider this a flashback to the events earlier in the day when protesters were still eager to turn out in force in hopes of somehow blocking his confirmation. It started with protesters getting training of some kind:

Women’s March

@womensmarch

Hundreds of people are being trained for today’s action every 30 minutes this morning.

We’re going to flood the Capitol.
We’re going to flood the polls.
We’re going to flood the streets.
The is coming.

Women’s March

@womensmarch

Hundreds are getting trained for direct action this morning. We’re also providing self-defense training for women and femmes, sign-making areas, and spots where women can write love letters to each other.

Our power is in our ferocious solidarity.

At some point, a group of protesters made their way to Susan Collins house:

Women’s March

@womensmarch

This AM, a group of members gathered outside @SenatorCollins’ house to appeal to her about her support of Kavanaugh.

We know how this vote will likely go. But we’re not going to make it easy on them. We’re in this until the very end.

Protesters eventually made their way to the U.S. Capitol where police were lined up to keep them off the Capitol steps. But protesters had apparently decided standing on the steps was one of their goals. That’s one of the things they had received training for apparently:

Here are the trained protesters running up the steps:

Sophie Ellman-Golan

.@womensmarch just took the Capitol. Women, survivors, and allies walked straight past the police, climbed over barricades, and sat down on the Capitol steps.

It was hard not do feel depleted this morning. But I don’t anymore. This was inspiring. We’re ready for this.

I guess the goal at this point was to create some kind of symbolic moral victory: Yes, Kavanaugh got confirmed but, hey, we stormed the Capitol like it was the beaches at Normandy! That’s why every moment of this historic act needed to be recorded for posterity:

Who Is Karl Marx?

Have Swedes Had Enough of “Tatar Invasions”?

SWEDEN SWINGS TO THE RIGHT

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

That is what observers expect from tomorrow’s election, anyway: “Far-right poised for big wins in Sweden election.”

The anti-immigration far-right is expected to soar in Sweden’s September 9 general election, capitalising on voter discontent as Swedes punish traditional parties over immigration, integration and health care.

Prime Minister Stefan Lofven’s Social Democrats, who have dominated Swedish politics since the 1930s, will remain the biggest party in the country but likely with a record low score, polls suggest.

The far-right Sweden Democrats (SD) are heading to make the most gains and come in a close second, followed by the conservative Moderates.

Bloomberg has a heartwarming headline: “Panic Grips Swedish Establishment Facing an Election Beating.” It is nearly impossible to get objective reporting from Europe where immigration is concerned:

The birthplace of Ikea flat packs and Volvo cars is starting to look just as vulnerable to the populist movement as Italy, Hungary and the U.S.

A bastion of welfare and equality, Sweden faces an election on Sunday that could be its most tumultuous in a century. As in other democracies across the world, the establishment is being challenged on multiple fronts.

Yes, for good reasons.

For a country that prides itself on stability and is seen as a model for social democracy across the world, the development is hard to grasp. But voters are now flocking to a party that was born of Sweden’s neo-Nazi, white supremacist movement.

Oh, please. This is the sort of brain-dead reporting that portrays all concerns about mass immigration as “far right.” Swedes who don’t like the direction in which their country is going are not “neo-Nazis” or “white supremacists.”

The established parties are pulling out all the stops in an effort to maintain the status quo. The Moderates are promising tax cuts and the Social Democrats are offering families an extra week off work. Both want increased spending on healthcare and education. They also pledging to crack down on crime and further restrict immigration, allowing the Sweden Democrats to set the debate.

So the established parties are catering to the neo-Nazis and white supremacists? Or are they acknowledging that skepticism of mass Islamic immigration is legitimate?

The nationalist groundswell has coincided with a record inflow of migrants and refugees. About 600,000 people flooded into the nation of 10 million over the past five years, straining public coffers and offsetting a broader drop in unemployment.

That corresponds to an influx of over 19 million immigrants, almost all Middle Eastern, into the United States. It is remarkable that anyone can be surprised that such a massive demographic change will create problems and resistance. But the liberal press is doggedly and deliberately obtuse.

We will comment further when Sweden’s returns are in.
