Comey Needs to Take a LONG CLEAN SHOWER…and then be indicted!

Comey Should Be Indicted

by Daniel John Sobieski   at American Thinker:

Now we know that not only did Hillary Clinton show intent in her handling of classified materials routed through her private server, but that former FBI Director James Comey and his team showed intent in letting her get away with it, to the detriment of American national security.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, in a Thursday letter to current FBI Director Christopher Wray, reveals how edits to Comey’s exoneration memo went beyond changing “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” but edited out content that shows the FBI knew Hillary was intentionally in violation of the Espionage Act but that, since the decision to exonerate her had already been made, they had to submit to the annals of history a lie they agreed upon:

Newly released documents obtained by Fox News reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings considerably.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI on Thursday that shows the multiple edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.

In an early draft, Comey said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was changed later to say the scenario was merely “possible.”

Another edit showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” This is a key legal distinction.

Johnson, writing about his concerns in a letter Thursday to FBI Director Christopher Wray, said the original “could be read as a finding of criminality in Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified material.”

“This effort, seen in light of the personal animus toward then-candidate Trump by senior FBI agents leading the Clinton investigation and their apparent desire to create an ‘insurance policy’ against Mr. Trump’s election, raise profound questions about the FBI’s role and possible interference in the 2016 presidential election and the role of the same agents in Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation by President Trump,” Johnson said.

Indeed, this does raise profound questions. Coupled with the text messages of lead investigator, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who has become known as the Zelig of the FBI who mysteriously appeared at every controversial moment, expressing clear intent to prevent the election of Donald Trump, we have before us a criminal conspiracy in which the most powerful law enforcement agency on this planet conspired with one political party to defeat the candidate of the other:

The letter reveals specific edits made by senior FBI agents when Deputy Director Andrew McCabe exchanged drafts of Comey’s statement with senior FBI officials, including Peter Strzok, Strzok’s direct supervisor, E.W. “Bill” Priestap, Jonathan Moffa, and an unnamed employee from the Office of General Counsel (identified by Newsweek as DOJ Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson) – in what was a coordinated conspiracy among top FBI brass to decriminalize Clinton’s conduct by changing legal terms and phrases, omitting key information, and minimizing the role of the Intelligence Community in the email investigation. Doing so virtually assured that then-candidate Hillary Clinton would not be prosecuted.


Imagine what was at stake here. If the FBI had just followed the evidence where it led and drew the obvious conclusions, Hillary Clinton would have been indicted, the Democratic Party would have been irreparably shattered, with Donald Trump wining in a popular vote as well as electoral vote landslide. This, in the view of a corrupted and politicized FBI had to be prevented at all costs and the Comey memo had to be sanitized before its release:

In addition to Strzok’s “gross negligence” –> “extremely careless” edit, McCabe’s damage control team removed a key justification for elevating Clinton’s actions to the standard of “gross negligence” — that being the “sheer volume” of classified material on Clinton’s server. In the original draft, the “sheer volume” of material “supports an inference that the participants were grossly negligent in their handling of that information.” …

Furthermore, the FBI edited Comey’s statement to downgrade the probability that Clinton’s server was hacked by hostile actors, changing their language from “reasonably likely” to “possible” — an edit which eliminated yet another justification for the phrase “Gross negligence.” To put it another way, “reasonably likely” means the probability of a hack due to Clinton’s negligence is above 50 percent, whereas the hack simply being “possible” is any probability above zero.

Strzok provided the motive for these activities to cover up the guilt of Hillary Clinton, activities which constitute obstruction of justice in text messages between him and his mistress and fellow FBI Agent Lisa Page: While everybody was predicting a Hillary victory, Strzok had his doubts and elevated himself to the status of savior of America, requiring that Trump be stopped at all costs, with this end justifying any and all means:

Out of all the damning, politically charged anti-Trump text messages released, one text from Strzok to Page on August 15, 2016, raised the most suspicion. It referred to a conversation and a meeting that had just taken place in “Andy’s” (widely believed to be Deputy FBI Dir. Andrew McCabe’s) office. According to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Strzok had texted this: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office [break]… that there’s no way he gets elected. I want to believe that… But I’m afraid we can’t take that risk… We have to do something about it.”

In another text, Page said: “maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace.” Strzok replied: “I can protect our country at many levels, not sure if that helps.”

“This goes to intent,” Jordan said. “We can’t take the risk that the people of this great country might elect Donald Trump. We can’t take this risk. This is Peter Strzok, head of counterintelligence at the FBI. This is Peter Strzok, who I think had a hand in that dossier that was all dressed up and taken to the FISA court. He’s saying, ‘we can’t take the risk, we have to do something about it.'”

What they tried to do about it is called obstructing justice and using the powers of their offices to interfere in a presidential election to materially aid the candidate of their choice. As Rep. Jordan notes, we face the probable reality of a dossier concocted by Russians, paid for by Team Hillary and the DNC, being used to fraudulently trick the FISA court to order surveillance of one campaign to the benefit of the other campaign. The politically motivated unmasking of Michael Flynn dovetails with this criminal conspiracy and explains much about the true purpose of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, which ignores Hillary’s collusion with Russia in Uranium One but indicts a Trump adviser for misremembering a legal phone call.. Can anyone say collusion? Then we face the prospect of a weaponized FBI becoming a campaign arm of the Hillary campaign.

We see now the method in the madness of the tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and AG Loretta Lynch, why the FBI issued immunity agreements to Clinton cronies such as Cheryl Mills, never empanelled a grand jury, started drafting an exoneration agreement before witnesses were interviewed, and failed to put Hillary under oath in an interview that James Comey did not attend. The fix was in

One can only hope that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is not asleep at the switch but rather just keeping a low profile as he methodically puts together a damning case of criminal conspiracy, obstruction of justice and, yes, gross negligence prior to an avalanche of indictments starting with Hillary Clinton and working its way down the food chain to include James Comey, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and many others.



Bob Mueller’s FBI Corruption Scandal


by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election has been plagued with scandal. In one notorious episode, the FBI agent who was perhaps most critical to the Hillary Clinton email investigation as well as to Mueller’s inquiry, Peter Strzok, turned out to be a rabid anti-Trump partisan. Moreover, he was conducting an extramarital affair with another anti-Trump zealot, Lisa Page, who is an FBI lawyer and also worked on the Russia investigation. Both Strzok and Page have been dismissed from Mueller’s team, but Mueller apparently has tried to cover up the circumstances surrounding their respective transfers.

It has been suggested that both Peter Strzok and his illicit lover Lisa Page may have been involved in using the fake Russia dossier created by and for the Clinton campaign to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. If this is true, it is the biggest scandal in the history of American politics. Glenn Reynolds decided to go to the source and ask Mueller or his representatives whether these reports are accurate. I am taking the liberty of reproducing Glenn’s post in its entirety:



I’m hearing from a source that Lisa Page was involved in approving Peter Strzok’s warrant requests to the FISC and possibly elsewhere. Can you confirm or deny if this was the case? And please tell me what her job title and function are in your office. Thanks.

Them (via spokesman Joshua Stueve):

Lisa Page, who was an attorney on detail to the Special Counsel’s office, returned to the FBI’s Office of the General Counsel in mid-July.

Me again:

Thank you but that doesn’t answer my question. What role did Lisa Page have in the handling of warrant applications, and in particular those involving Peter Strzok?

Them again:

I’ll decline to comment further.

Well, then.

Page, remember, is the FBI lawyer with whom Strzok was having an extramarital affair and exchanging anti-Trump texts. Perhaps someone with more resources than I will be able to get to the bottom of this.

The entire Mueller operation stinks. President Trump would be thoroughly justified in shutting it down, if that were politically feasible.

Is Robert Mueller as CORRUPT as He Seems to BE? Or More Corrupt?


According to the Leftists and other Communist rabble at Wikileaks, the SPECIAL COUNSEL IS:

The 2017 Special Counsel investigation is an ongoing investigation in the United States led by former FBI Director Robert Muelleras special counsel under supervision of the United States Department of Justice. Mueller is exploring any links or coordination between Donald Trump‘s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government as part of the election interference that Russia conducted against the U.S. in 2016.

Mueller’s investigation subsumed several existing FBI investigations including those involving former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former National Security Advisor Michael T. Flynn. In August 2017, Mueller’s investigation reportedly expanded to include several lobbying firms, including the Podesta Group. Mueller has assembled a team of attorneys to conduct the investigation into links between Trump associates and Russian officials along with related matters.

On October 30, 2017, Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates surrendered to the FBI on charges brought by the special counsel unrelated to the Trump campaign. On the same day, Mueller’s team revealed that former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos had pled guilty on October 5 to making false statements to FBI agents about contacts he had with agents of the Russian government while working for the Trump campaign in 2016, and was cooperating with investigators. On December 1, 2017, former National Security Adviser Michael T. Flynn pled guilty to “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI. [1]”

Now that is quite up-to-date don’t you think?……..But Congress “doesn’t pay a penny” from its budgets to cover the millions of dollars required to buy and sell truth and consequences leftist conspiracies only  about Republicans especially about the one in the  White House.

Where do the  lefties who run  Wikileaks folks report how their gestapo or NKVD branch of government gets funded?   How did it get established and by whom?

Rumors passing in leftist newsprint along with the exposure of Al Franken of Minnesota, John Conyers, Jr. of Michigan…..(skip the Conyers  “junior”, however,  he’s 172 and a half years old and has been for decades), and other sources, are ‘exposing’ themselves to   poor, overworked, underworked, frightened, unfrightened, immature, lonely, but income-seeking human females being ‘victimized’ by human males exposures somewhere  in and about Congress.   Some have received significant payoffs from Congressmen through slush funds paid by the American tax payer in secret.

More recent rumors have clarified that Robert Mueller’s  Special Counsel ‘institution’ now used by Mueller,  the Republican, and other Democrats focused  to discover something to cripple ambitious America-loving, President Donald J. Trump, IS ALSO PAID BY SOME SECRET SOURCE OF SLUSH FUNDS independent of Congressional oversight.

Mr. President.   Send Robert Mueller and his Special Counsel spy ring racket into RETIREMENT!  Please!



Obama Defeated in the CFPB War

CFPB: The left’s latest battlefield

by David Zukerman  at American Thinker:


“The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the brainchild of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), has become the latest battlefield in the left’s war on President Trump.  Richard Cordray, the bureau’s director, quit suddenly on November 24 and named his former chief of staff, Leandra English, to be acting director.  This move would have kept the bureau in leftist hands until a successor, named by President Trump, could be confirmed.  Disregarding Cordray’s partisan action, President Trump named Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, acting director of the CFPB.  (Apparently, Mulvaney would wear two hats for the time being.)  Mulvaney is on record as being critical of the CFPB.

Sen. Warren was quoted in the New York Times, November 28, as saying that the bureau “‘was built to be as far away from partisan politics as humanly possible – including exactly what Donald Trump is doing now.”

And what is President Trump “doing now”?  Arguably, he has moved, pursuant to federal law, to name the acting director of a federal agency until such time as the head of the agency will be nominated, with Senate confirmation to follow.

According to the account in the Times, Ms. English went to Capitol Hill to meet with Senate Democratic leader Charles E. Schumer and Sen. Warren, hardly an indication of nonpartisan intent.  As of this writing, both Ms. English and Mr. Mulvaney claim to be acting director of the CFPB, with the matter now the subject of litigation brought by Ms. English, before Judge Timothy J. Kelly in federal court in the District of Columbia.  Interestingly, Mary McLeod, the CFPB’s general counsel, regards the Mulvaney appointment as legitimate.  (Judge Kelly is a Trump appointee.  This does not necessarily mean Ms. English will not prevail, but perhaps we can be thankful that the matter is not heard before the Ninth Circuit, a judicial bastion of “The Resistance.”)

It is to be expected that the left will point to the Mulvaney appointment as an authoritarian assault on democracy.  To such leftist deviousness, this editorial observation in the Wall Street Journal, November 26, is worth noting: “Democrats created an executive-branch agency [the CFPB] insulated from Congressional appropriations and presidential control, and now they claim to be able to run it like a branch of government unto itself with a self-sustaining directorship.”  The editorial describes this view as “a perversion of constitutional government.”  Certainly, it is a perversion of representative government accountable to the people.  As WSJ columnist William McGurn suggests in his November 28 column, the CFPB tug-of-war points out “to the American people what happens when federal power is divorced from democratic accountability.”

But isn’t this what The Resistance to the Trump presidency is all about – rejecting the election of the president of the United States by the processes set forth in the Constitution?



What if the Human Female Animal Were Born to be Rational?

She’d be more male.    So, she is born DITSY as is her nature.   The more communication she professionally spends  with normal males, the more likely she can become unditsied, more lucid and rational.

Two and two often don’t make four, in the feminist mind.   She prefers to express feelings rather than explore.   She seeks security and comfort, by Nature or Nature’s God, I prefer, security is required by the human female because she is the bearer of the human  animal’s off spring.   If she is “in the mood”, she, in a free society, has or feels she has a right to feel about things any way she pleases rather than to measure or adjust or explore or be driven to problem solve as is the human animal born male.    Hence, our current  feminized, feelings driven United States of America is collapsing as a unit into a suicidal abyss.

In today’s Obamaling era of the Left, at university, and among political mouths in the foolish traditional Episcopalian, Presbyterian, and other such ‘Synods’ of today’s fading  JudeoChristian life,  have become feminized with feelings and are made to feel they are as man as men.

What would happen to America if our leftist feminized peoples continued to form a dictatorship to force the entire adult population to be man as me?   Most women don’t think along those lines.   Their imagination by birth is directed to follow other avenues of dreams and accomplishment.   (No living entity is perfect.  Without imperfection living matter would never pass its “amoeba” stage of existence.   I WAS TAUGHT THAT IN THE SMALL UNITED LUTHERAN CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION in 1947 in St. Paul, Minnesota I attended by force by  Mother and love of learning!

I did teach Senior High School Social Studies for twelve years, was married for 34 years, and am a father of two boys and one girl, now adults.    My two sons explore every day of their lives which includes, demands,  problem solving.  They are also Donald Trump Republicans, like their problem solving father.

My daughter prefers security, dreams, dancing, attention and is well married to a fine Jewish fellow who seems to love her very much.   They  live out East on the island of Manhattan, are  leftists who believed in  Hillary.

Female difficulties with the human male have again made headlines this past month and a half….at first in the leftist entertainment world with a  Harvey Weinstein becoming the center of feminist fury.  Hundreds, even leftist  Hanoi Jane Fonda claimed victim to support the feminism scream, a leftist unraveling defying this caste’s catechism that  there is no difference among human animals except feelings.

Feminist leftists sell the story of one human sex these days….via the Democrat Party and its rule in government and law, in school,  at university, of the press ….and in some churches and synagogues….perhaps even at Amazon, but that would be kept hush-hush by Amazon management….while countless human guys spend time out in the streets  noted for their raping, killing,  pillaging, burning, and lying about nearly everything.

This past week the name Roy Moore came to surface, a man in his seventies who won the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama a seat made vacant when then Alabama U.S. Senator, Jeff Sessions became Attorney General in the Trump administration.   Noted fascist news center, the Washington Post, soon came up with accusations against this former Judge, Roy Moore,charging him with sexual misconduct with a fourteen and two sixteen year olds nearly forty years ago.

A television scene demonstrated one alleged victim now in her fifties, crying over his touchings of nearly four decades ago.  No more recent calls have been dug up by the Post.

At my distance I assumed and still assume this Judge Moore did commit these four or five indecencies.  But, there was and still is, no proof…..only charges from a world long ago.    We Americans, however, are supposed to  by law remember  that a person is innocent until proven guilty beyond doubt.

Politically motivated males and females of Congress insist Judge Moore, still innocent, be removed from his candidacy…..which will make it certain the DISHONEST LEFTISTS IN CONGRESS WILL SECURE ANOTHER SEAT TO DESTROY OUR AMERICAN DREAM of equal opportunity for all citizens,  with fascist bigotry being established as the new American Way.

Our Nation’s future depends upon a Conservative American Congress to survive the FEMINISTS’ Party, its criminality, dishonesty, fascistic, feminized leftist-antiAmericans racists now in control of the Democrat Party…..and their Sanctuary Cities owned by the urban left to weaken and  destroy the nation’s unity.

Guys are born to problem solve….gals to bear children to continue the existence of the human species by the laws of Nature, “God”, I prefer!

Judge Moore has apparently demonstrated decades of civility and responsibility over the past 38 years.

It’s our Democrats who have changed during that time period….the Obamalings, both political and urban street savages, the Clinton world, have become racist and fascist in their politics.   These leftists demand  we continue opening our borders to millions of racial and political foreigners demanding comfort and security at our American citizen expense in exchange for their fascism’s one Party vote.

Leftists have already gained one party fascist control over the social sciences taught at university and public schools  ignoring truth and freedom to study beyond feminazi, racist, and class hate programs of the NEW RACIST, SEXIST LEFT  to destroy traditional  America raise by its forefathers’ founding of our Great Human Republic UNDER GOD WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL”

Knowledge needs to be taught in order to conquer the unknown.  THIS IS A MALE DEMAND.   Accumulating knowledge is best accomplished by a population craving to seek Truth….that is, to grasp more and more knowledge.

Dear Feminists….both Republican and Democrat, of all sexes, colors, shapes and sizes still interested, at least somewhat,  in a Free America…….

What if Roy Moore did commit these five discretions thirty eight years ago, but  has ever since  been an honorable citizen with a conservative persuasion in his politics?

What if our once honorable Democrat Party needs just one more  vote in the Senate to guarantee its present fascist and feminist  goal to  eliminate forever!  Feminists of all sexes, colors, shapes and sizes are now committed to destroy  TRADITIONALLY DEMOCRATIC AMERICA and all  other  freedom oriented,  truth-seeking  opposition organizations , to secure their racist, sexist, economic fascist-socialist one party (totalitarian) future.

Let us assume our American, Roy Moore,  skilled as a Judge, honorable,  outside of his unproved, alleged sins of 38 years ago, is THE ONLY CANDIDATE TO SAVE AMERICA FROM THIS  DICTATORSHIP FUTURE…let’s say a paid off Al Sharpton  type, noted creepy criminal, racist,  habitual liar, devoted to sell dishonesty, racism, an obedient crook and  fascist for fame and fortune who, IF HE WINS PUTS AN END TO DEMOCRATIC AMERICA FOREVER…..(ALA SOUTH AMERICA’S ONCE DEMOCRATIC NOW FASCIST NATION, VENEZUELA.)

White American males would vote 68%, blacks males about 22% for slightly damaged, but freedom oriented devoted American, Judge Roy Moore to save the nation for democracy…..

By 2020 if  our nation’s  Democrats strengthen their   fascistic control of news, education, social-political agencies, and are funded as usual by  big businesses,  single American white  females would probably vote 99% for profoundly, forever damaged, the crooked, Al Sharpton, and black females of all backgrounds about 97%.

Feminists do not care much about honesty,  inquiry, search for knowledge, nor are they freedom oriented.    They demand security as they did in Nazi Germany in the 1930s….and as a mass, never rebelled in any fascist, communist nation…ever, ever.

They demand security, not freedom or search for the unknown…..as a mass.  Al Sharpton would win big time….because Roy Moore “done a female a slight male naughty” 42 years ago in 2020.








Fascists in Edina, Mn. Working Overtime


by John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

I wrote hereherehere (a video of a speech by me), here and here about the sad decline of the Edina, Minnesota public schools into hard-core leftism. Edina’s school district was once among the nation’s most respected, but its administrators have been content to see the district slide down to second or third tier status, because their sole priority is “racial equity,” which is code for a long list of left-wing hobby horses.

What happens when a public school district falls into the hands of race-obsessed leftists? For one thing, students think it’s cool to disrespect America’s veterans. Last Friday, Veterans’ Day, Edina High School held a ceremony to honor Edina’s vets. The high school kids assembled, and most of them behaved properly. But many did not. Some giggled and talked loudly, among themselves or on their cell phones, through the ceremony. Worse, a group of students made a deliberate show of disrespecting veterans–even during the playing of “Taps”–by lounging prominently on the floor in front of the crowd rather than standing. This was an anti-American political statement, as some of them later confirmed on Facebook and other social media.

Here is the video:

I grew up in South Dakota in the 1950s and 1960s, when such conduct would have been unthinkable. Today, it is not only thinkable, it is considered commendable in liberal school districts like Edina’s.

Over the weekend, the protesting students and their supporters made their political position clear, in social media posts like this one. Evidently spelling and punctuation have been de-emphasized in the Edina schools, as the focus has shifted to leftist politics:

And this one, which has now been taken down. For those who don’t follow such things, “THOT” means “that ho over there.”

YCC refers to the Young Conservatives Club at Edina High School. The YCC has long been abused by fellow students and by Edina teachers and administrators. This account came from one member of the organization, describing what happened on election day last November:

I walked into morning rehearsal for choir at 7:15 am and I proudly wore my shirt. As I took my seat I could see and feel eyes on me and people whispering. I kept my head up and was proud. Then I got to the cafeteria where I liked to meet my friends before school starts and in between classes. People were glaring at me, whispering, challenging me on my views, people called me racist to my face and over social media, and I experienced public humiliation.

During lunch the YCC had gathered for a group picture with our Trump shirts on. And by 6th hour, when all I wanted was to go home and lie in bed after a day of bullying, a staff member pulled me out of class. … The staff member pulled me out of class not to ask me about how my day was going or if I was emotionally okay, but his question for me was “I heard there were students in the YCC picture yelling ‘deportation!’ as the picture was taken. Is that true?” I assured him that, no that wasn’t true. But he kept asking as if he didn’t believe me.

Edina High School posts signs that say, “All are welcome here!” But what they really mean is, all are welcome except conservatives.

Apparently some members of the YCC posted on social media over the weekend, criticizing the students who went out of their way to show contempt for veterans. That prompted a video response from a group of fascists at the high school. The video has now been deleted, but it featured a single student on screen, wearing the familiar Guy Fawkes mask. He issued a series of threats against members of the Young Conservatives Club. Here is a screen shot of the now-deleted video, along with a transcript:

To get the full effect, you almost have to listen to the audio:

Audio Player

So Edina’s school administrators were confronted with a crisis: a number of students had behaved reprehensibly, showing disrespect for veterans and for America at a school assembly intended to honor veterans on Veterans Day. Beyond that, disgusting social media posts had attacked America and insulted non-leftist students. And a video threatened, specifically, members of the Young Conservatives Club.

Faced with this situation, what did Superintendent of Schools John Schultz do? He sent out a mealy-mouthed email that mostly defended the students who attacked America and disrespected veterans, because they were “peaceful.” Click to enlarge:

Superintendent Schultz says that the now-deleted fascist video “is certainly inflammatory and creepy.” But he finds no serious fault with it because “our investigation…in concert with [the Edina Police Department] has uncovered no credible or legal threat….” I have no idea what Superintendent Schultz means by “no credible or legal threat,” but the video was certainly threatening by any normal definition (e.g., “We will not stop until every tentacle of your evil monstrosity is sliced off at the nerve.”)

So now, as the dust settles, are the Edina schools cracking down on the fascist students who issued threats behind a mask, or the students who disavowed allegiance to America and referred to fellow students as “females on their periods,” “some bitches” and “that ho over there”?

Just kidding. Superintendent Schultz says that he appreciates the anti-American demonstrators because they protested “peacefully,” if contemptuously. Tonight, there are multiple reports that Edina High School is cracking down on conservative students because they dared to criticize the anti-American, anti-veteran display that took place on Friday. Suspensions have been reported, although these have not yet been confirmed. On the other hand, we have seen no reports of any actions being taken against the anti-American demonstrators or the fascists who posted the threatening video.

This is a developing situation, and we will report again when the facts are clearer. But what has already happened in the once-respected Edina school district shows how deeply the rot of leftism extends into American public education.




Murderer Sayfullo Saipov illustrates the suicidal absurdity of Obama’s American immigration Law

by Scott Johnson at PowerLine:


“Terrorist murderer Sayfullo Saipov illustrates the suicidal absurdity of American immigration law. He was taken into the United States from Uzbekistan through the monumental stupidity of the so-called “diversity visa lottery.” He brings diversity to the 50 shades of farce in the immigration law.

Mark Krikorian takes a deep dive into the diversity visa lottery here at NRO. Krikorian adds the poignant fact that Saipov’s first name is from the Arabic for “Sword of Allah.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that. It must have been a beautiful sword.

The diversity visa lottery is bad enough. Even worse is the family chain migration fostered by our immigration law. Saipov’s case appears to illustrate the absurdity of chain migration as well. You start with one refugee or other such immigrant on whom we are to lavish our compassion and before too long you have the whole village.

To borrow a trope from JFK, there are some who say that’s not the way it works. Let them come to Minneapolis.

At a cabinet meeting yesterday afternoon President Trump cited Saipov as a case in point. Our diverse man from ISIS may have been able to help as many as 23 family membersimmigrate to the United States as part of the first link in the chain that began with Saipov’s green card.”

It’s way past time to call a timeout while we right the system.
