Comey Claims Obama Never Briefed on Hillary’s Use of Private Server That He Said was “Safe”.

thQF52XQO5

Former FBI Director James Comey has already demonstrated that he possesses a selective memory when it comes to the funding of the Steele Dossier.

Wait until you read this.

You may want to put on a pair of books, first though. It’s about to get deep.

FoxNews.com reports that

Transcripts of former FBI Director James Comey’s closed-door testimony before House Republicans has raised questions over how Barack Obama could have determined that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server didn’t imperil national security if the FBI never briefed him on the investigation. 

In a second meeting this month with lawmakers, Comey was asked about remarks former President Obama made during a “60 Minutes” interview in October 2015.

Obama said of the email matter that it wasn’t “a situation in which America’s national security was endangered,” and that Clinton never appeared to hide anything.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-SC., asked Comey if he had ever spoken with Obama about the Clinton email investigation, to which the ex-FBI chief replied, “No.” He said he never directed anyone at the bureau to do so either.

Gowdy grilled Comey over how Obama could claim there was no threat if the FBI hadn’t informed him about the inquiry..

“President Obama said of her email arrangement, ‘I don’t think it posed a national security problem.’ How would he have known that at the time?” Gowdy asked.

“I can’t answer that,” Comey replied.

“He also said, ‘This is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.’ How would he have known that at the time?” he was asked again.

“Same answer. I can’t answer that for him,” Comey said.

When asked if he knew how the president could be sure that Clinton did not “hide anything or squirrel away information,” Comey said he does not.

Gowdy pointed out that the fact that there are still missing emails that were destroyed means it would be difficult to be sure of any such thing.

During his testimony, Comey also noted that there were several instances of email exchanges between Clinton and Obama, both from a private server.

When asked why Clinton was not questioned over this as it related to the investigation, Comey recalled that the emails was not considered to be classified, while the probe centered on classified data: “I don’t remember anything concerning about the substance of the communication.”

He also said that references to Obama’s private email server were eliminated from a July 5, 2016, press conference out of concern about that information falling into the wrong hands.

“There was an issue with respect to that, and it was that if the bad guys — we didn’t want to do anything to confirm to the bad guys that they might have Barack Obama’s private cover email unclassified because let’s imagine the Russians had captured that communication, they might not know what they had. And so, I remember some discussion about what we should say, if anything, in my public remarks about that.”

Despite the position that the emails held nothing classified, Comey could not say why lawmakers were not provided with them.

Comey said that neither he nor then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch advised the president that it was inappropriate for the chief executive to comment on a pending investigation.

I was going to observe that Former FBI Director Comey was not the “White Knight” that he has been so desperately portraying himself as in the Liberal Main Stream Media, but that would be an understatement.

In fact, he is the living definition of a “bureaucratic weasel”.

If you believe that Obama, Hillary, and Lynch did not know what the FBI were doing to cover for Hillary’s “E-mailgate”, then you probably believe that Senator Bernie Sanders lives modestly.

Remember last June, when Inspector General Horowitz issued his report on “E-mailgate”and he wrote that there was an “appearance of bias”?

Correction: There was a REALITY of bias.

There is a reason why Inspector General Horowitz was reticent to blatantly declare the existence of political bias in the upper echelon of the FBI:

As President Trump once stated, He is an “Obama Guy”.

Let’s look at the IG’s history.

  • He received his Juris Doctor from Harvard, where he was taught by the likes of upstanding individuals like Barney Franks.
  • Horowitz worked in DOJ from 1991 to 2002. In the early 1990s, he worked for former fired FBI Director Comey while the two of them were in the Southern District of New York.
  • He worked from 2002 to 2012 as a partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham, & Taft LLP, where he specialized in on white-collar defense, internal investigations, and regulatory compliance.
  • Horowitz was nominated by President Obama in July 2011 to be Inspector General of the DOJ.
  • He has been Inspector General since starting in 2012 under the Obama Administration.

Yes, gentle readers. He worked for Comey in the Southern District of New York.

That’s why he did not go after Comey as roughly as he could (or should) have.

That is also why the Southern District of New York is so heavily involved in the Russia Probe.

These “ties that bind” within the Department of Justice and the FBI are most definitely not “blessed”.

They are corrupt.

As Comey’s latest testimony vividly demonstrates, the professional bureaucrats who served in the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the Obama Administration were more interested in serving their bosses than in the cause of justice.

Not only did they know of Hillary’s cavalier treatment of top-secret e-mails, they also knew that she used the Clinton Foundation as her and Bubba’s very own “Laundromat”, “cleaning up” copious donations from foreign powers who sought favorable treatment from the State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

It is now very apparent that the corruption ran so deep in the Halls of Power during this time that they were all standing on their tiptoes trying to see above it.

It is also apparent that the DOJ and the FBI had no interest in investigating Hillary, as they were too busy playing footsie with Christopher Steele, Cody Shearer, and Richard Blumenthal in their mission to knock Donald J. Trump out of the Race for the Presidency.

IG Horowitz did his best not to overtly condemn those in power in the FBI during the Obama Administration. However, what he did report certainly helps to clarify the lack of integrity on the part of Former FBI Director Comey which is there for all to read in this latest transcript for yesterday’s Congressional Hearing.

As More Info is Revealed About Obama’s “Weaponized” FBI, It Becomes Clear Why Bill Clinton and AG Lynch Met on the Tarmac

 

lynch-998x699

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive.” – Sir Walter Scott

TheHill.com reports that

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew well in advance of FBI Director James Comey’s 2016 press conference that he would recommend against charging Hillary Clinton, according to information turned over to the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Friday.
 
The revelation was included in 384 pages of text messages exchanged between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and it significantly diminishes the credibility of Lynch’s earlier commitment to accept Comey’s recommendation — a commitment she made under the pretense that the two were not coordinating with each other.
 
And it gets worse. Corey and Lynch reportedly knew that Clinton would never face charges even before the FBI conducted its three-hour interview with Clinton, which was supposedly meant to gather more information into her mishandling of classified information.
 
On July 1, 2016, as the Lynch announcement became public, Page texted Strzok:

Page: And yeah, it’s a real profile in couragw [sic], since she knows no charges will be brought.

There are other revelations within the text messages. But in the cover letter accompanying them, the FBI notified Congress that many additional text messages are missing. According to the FBI, its “technical system for retaining text messages sent and received on FBI mobile devices failed to preserve text messages for Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page from December 14, 2016 to approximately to [sic] May 17, 2017.”
 
The reason?

(M)any FBI-provided Samsung 5 mobile devices did not capture or store text messages due to misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning, and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities. The result was that data that should have been automatically collected and retained for long-term storage and retrieval was not collected.

In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray sent yesterday, the head of the Senate Homeland Security Committee Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin, called the loss of records “concerning.”
 
Strzok and Page communicated in a voluminous fashion via text message while allegedly having an illicit affair. Strzok was a key figure in the Hillary Clinton exoneration and reportedly interviewed President Trump’s former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (which resulted in Flynn pleading guilty to lying to the FBI). Until last summer, Strzok and Page were both members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating the allegations of collusion between Russia and Trump’s campaign. Neither has been accused of wrongdoing.
 
The text messages seem to indicate that some within the FBI were making investigatory decisions based on Trump’s ascendancy among the Republican field of presidential candidates. On May 4, 2016 Strzok and Page had the following text message exchange:

Page: And holy shit Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable.
 
Strzok: What?!?!??
 
Page: You heard it right my friend.
 
Strzok: I saw trump won, figured it would be a bit…Now the pressure really starts to finish MYE…
 
Page: It sure does. We need to talk about follow up call tomorrow.

“MYE” stands for “midyear exam” and was the FBI case name for the Clinton email investigation.
 
The text exchanges also indicate the FBI substituted, and then omitted, damaging language in FBI Director Comey’s July 5, 2016 statement that recommended Clinton not be charged. The original draft noted that Clinton had improperly used personal email to contact President Obama while abroad in the territory of sophisticated adversaries. According to the text exchange, an FBI official then removed President Obama’s name and stated that Clinton had simply emailed “another senior government official.” In the final statement as delivered by Comey on July 5, both references were omitted entirely.
 
Other texts suggest Strzok and Page intended to subvert rules governing preservation of their discussions about FBI matters. In April of 2016, Page texted:

Page: so look, you say we text on that phone when we talk about Hillary because it can’t be traced…

In previous text messages produced to the House of Representatives, Strzok and Page discussed needing an “insurance policy” in the event Trump were to become president. The newest batch of text messages turned over on Friday show that in February of 2016, Page texted Strzok that then-candidate Trump “simply can not [sic] be president.”
 
Any neutral observer would have to be concerned about supposed missing evidence from a premier law enforcement and intel collection agency as well as the types of discussions and conflicts of interest apparently at issue with key officials within the FBI. It’s one more piece of a developing story that unfortunately points to alleged misconduct by some at top levels in our intelligence community. If the allegations bear out, it could have huge implications for a number of investigations handled by the officials in question over the past decade — not just cases related to the 2016 campaign.
 
The FBI did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

You’d better believe that Lynch knew ahead of time that Clinton would not be charged.

Remember a certain “Tarmac Meeting” between Former President Bill “Bubba” Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch which happened on June 27, 2016?

That meeting occurred just hours before Department of Justice Officials filed a motion in federal court seeking a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a closely allied public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch.

The next morning I wrote,

“Now, why would someone as smart as Bill Clinton, the former president of United States of America comma and attorney general Loretta Lynch, have a meeting that has such an appearance of impropriety?”

At the time, I thought that there were several possibilities.

After the revelations from the new documents released last Friday, I believe that it is patently clear why Bubba met with AG Lynch in that jet idling on the tarmac.

FoxNews.com reported some additional information about that clandestine meeting in an article posted on December 1, 2017…

The revelation last year of an unorthodox tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch set off a frenzied scramble at the FBI to track down the source, newly released documents show. 

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which on Thursday released 29 pages of FBI emails related to the 2016 meeting, said the messages show officials were more concerned about the leak than the substance of the report. 

“These new FBI documents show the FBI was more concerned about a whistleblower who told the truth about the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting than the scandalous meeting itself,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. 

The FBI initially claimed it had no documents pertaining to the meeting, until uncovering the files later turned over to Judicial Watch. 

The watchdog group, in releasing the files, said FBI officials sent a flurry of emails after the meeting was reported in New York’s Observer.

One email sent from an unidentified FBI account on July 3, 2016 said, “We need to find that guy” and bring him or her before a supervisor. Another said the source should be banned from working security details. 

Officials speculated that the source of the leak was a Phoenix police officer. One official said they contacted the Phoenix office and would try to “stem any further damage.” 

One official, in a July 2 email, said the article represented a “breach in security protocol” and the Phoenix division would be pressured to “identify the source of the breach.” 

Judicial Watch said all names on the emails were redacted and there is no documentation showing concern over the meeting itself.

The tarmac meeting fueled Republican complaints at the time that Lynch had improperly met with the husband of an investigation subject, just before the probe into Hillary Clinton’s personal email use was completed with no charges filed.

Fired FBI Director James Comey, in Senate testimony, described the tarmac meeting as problematic. The tarmac meeting came days before Comey held a news conference informing the media that Hillary Clinton would not be charged.

Comey in July 2016 said Clinton was “extremely careless” in handling classified and other emails on the servers but recommend no criminal charges — a conclusion Lynch accepted.

Lynch later expressed regret that she sat down with Bill Clinton while his wife was under federal criminal investigation, a chance encounter she acknowledged “cast a shadow” on the public’s perception of a case bound to influence the presidential campaign.

“I certainly wouldn’t do it again,” Lynch said of the meeting.

Well, gosh, gentle readers. I wonder why the FBI was more worried about the source of the leak than they were about the impropriety of the meeting, itself?

Well, duuuuh.

It’s because the FBI had orchestrated it with the Clintons.

It was a strategy session.

With these new revelations contained in the documents released last Friday Night, the probability of the existence of a weaponized FBI being used to keep Donald J. Trump from becoming President while protecting the candidacy of Hillary Clinton has solidified into a certainty.

I mean just look at how the dominoes are lining up in place, ready to all be toppled over.

While this Russian Collusion Probe has been traveling around throwing up a smoke screen like a clown car in a circus, Former President Barack Hussein Obama has been traveling overseas, meeting with foreign leaders as if he never left office. And, on top of that, he has been denigrating President Donald J. Trump and his Administration, undermining their Foreign Affairs Strategy.

Obama is desperately trying to ensure that his mission to turn the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth into a Third World Socialist Paradise is not derailed by the unexpected loss of his hand-picked predecessor to a “Citizen Statesman”.

Additionally, you have a Former Nazi Sympathizer, now a Billionaire “Philanthropist”, funding Far Left Causes.

Faced with the reality of a splintered Democratic Party, which has alienated its base by moving to the Extreme Far Left of the Political Spectrum, this Former President , while still in office, decided to spy on the one candidate who might actually have a chance to beat his own party’s lousy candidate in a fair Presidential Election, through the means of “weaponizing” the FBI and turning it into a “Political Hit Squad”, making the days of J. Edgar Hoover’s political shenanigans seem mild in comparison.

After all that political chicanery failed and the Citizen Statesman became the President, the Former Petulant President Pantywaist encouraged “rebellion”, as if the reality of a nation being torn asunder was some sort of “Star Wars” Movie, through the use of his “benefactor’s”(the Former Nazi Sympathizer) money in the funding of manufactured protests and a Media-Driven, Community -Organizing Assault, which includes the Former President’s own “Organizing For America” Website, which has taken the cheesy name of “The Resistance”.

Not unlike the Bolsheviks of the Russian Revolution, this “Resistance”, with their willing accomplices in the Main Stream Media and within OUR Federal Government, launched a massive assault, through the dissemination of propaganda, manufactured protests, and Fake News, in order to somehow diminish the sitting President, in the hopes of regaining their lost power and continuing their mission, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.

Unfortunately for them, they underestimated the power of the New Media and the resiliency of the average American, here in the Heartland, who stopped believing their lies some time ago.

Meanwhile, Mueller and his cadre of Liberal SS Troops continued to undermine Trump through the continuance of their Dog and Pony Show, which they euphemistically called “an investigation”.

The more that Mueller and his troops insisted that they were non-biased, the more information came forth that they have been and still are holdovers from the Clinton Administration, working as Deep State Operatives to do unto Trump as Brutus did unto Caesar.

They have proved themselves to be nothing but Trump Haters with no actual evidence of any kind that President Trump “colluded” with the Russians.

Meanwhile, the Democrats in Congress have yet to present any sort of bill which is beneficial to average Americans.

And now, they have foolishly shut down the government in a phony “defense of The Dreamers”, weakening the momentum of their “Resistance” and strengthening the resolve of both the sitting President and the average Americans who voted him into office, against all odds.

It is time to release the “Kraken”…otherwise known as “The Memo”, a 4-page document which is supposed to illuminate the activities of the Obama Administration and their Deep State Operatives in a manner which will leave no doubt as to corrupt and treasonous activities which were carried out by the Obama Administration and their Deep State Operatives in the FBI in an effort to circumvent the will of the American People.

It is not just time to “drain” The Swamp.

It’s time to FLUSH it.

Senate Judicial Committee Launches Probe Over Lynch’s Possible Obstruction of Hillary Investigation

141108-loretta-lynch-mn-1235_808848110e47a65f68a0851a20700aea

When President Barack Hussein Obama announced his pick to succeed Eric Holder as Attorney General, the first reports profiled her as an “overqualified” Prosecutor from Brooklyn, NY. While Ms. Lynch may or many not actually have had the legal skills for the position, it is a certainty that she had the correct political ideology, racial animus, and situational ethics to work within the Obama Administration.

And, now, the Senate would like to speak with her.

The Washington Times reports that

The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta  Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.

In a letter to Ms. Lynch, the committee asks her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.”

Fired FBI Director James B. Comey has said publicly that Ms. Lynch tried to shape the way he talked about the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s emails, and he also hinted at other behavior “which I cannot talk about yet” that made him worried about Ms. Lynch’s ability to make impartial decisions.

Mr. Comey said that was one reason why he took it upon himself to buck Justice Department tradition and reveal his findings about Mrs. Clinton last year.

The probe into Ms. Lynch comes as the Judiciary Committee is already looking at President Trump’s firing of Mr. Comey.

Sen. Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the committee, said the investigation is bipartisan. The letter to Ms. Lynch is signed by ranking Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and also by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Sheldon Whitehouse, the chairman and ranking member of the key investigative subcommittee.

Letters also went to Clinton campaign staffer Amanda Renteria and Leonard Benardo and Gail Scovell at the Open Society Foundations. Mr. Benardo was reportedly on an email chain from the then-head of the Democratic National Committee suggesting Ms. Lynch had given assurances to Ms. Renteria, the campaign staffer, that the Clinton probe wouldn’t “go too far.”

At a Senate hearing earlier this month, Mr. Comey told lawmakers that Ms. Lynch had attempted to change the way the FBI described its probe of Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server. The change appeared to dovetail with how Mrs. Clinton’s supporters were characterizing the probe.

“At one point, [Ms. Lynch] directed me not to call it an ‘investigation’ but instead to call it a ‘matter,’ which confused me and concerned me,” Mr. Comey said during his June 8 testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “That was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude I have to step away from the department if we are to close this case credibly.”

Acknowledging that he didn’t know whether it was intentional, Mr. Comey said Ms. Lynch’s request “gave the impression the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our investigation with the way a political campaign was describing the same activity.”

Mr. Comey said the language suggested by Ms. Lynch was troublesome because it closely mirrored what the Clinton campaign was using. Despite his discomfort, Mr. Comey said, he agreed to Ms. Lynch’s language.

On June 29th of last year, Former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch met in her private jet sitting on the tarmac on an airport runway.

That meeting occurred just hours before Department of Justice Officials filed a motion in federal court seeking a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a closely allied public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch.

The next morning I wrote,

“Now, why would someone as smart as Bill Clinton, the former president of United States of America comma and attorney general Loretta Lynch, have a meeting that has such an appearance of impropriety?

At the time, I thought that there were several possibilities.

The first possibility was obvious. Bubba met with the attorney general in order to plead with her to let Hillary off the hook and to not invite her for her treasonous behavior in her email scandal.

The Clintons have always thought they were above the law. Hillary has left a trail of bodies between Arkansas and Washington DC, and nothing has ever happened to her. But comma even for the Clintons, such a blatant move would be inherently stupid. And, it would not help her presidential campaign one bit.

Or, perhaps it was Loretta Lynch’s camp that leaked the information of the clandestine meeting to the local news station in order to recuse herself from the matter.

The last possible Theory as to why Bubba and Miss Loretta had the clandestine meeting on that jet is that he was trying to leverage her by offering her a possible position on the Supreme Court if Hillary got elected President the United States of America. Again, the Clintons have always considered themselves to be above the law and they’re not beyond political chicanery such as that.

The bottom line is, whatever the purpose of that meeting on the tarmac was, I believed that nothing would happen, at the time. Simply because, boys and girls, Democrat Politicians seemed to be above the rules that apply to you and me. It does not matter if there is an appearance of impropriety nor does it matter if actual political chicanery, including bribery, happened onboard that plane.

It appeared at the time that, as far as the Political Elite’s involvement up on Capitol Hill, nothing would happen.

Now, almost one year later, it appears that the meeting on the tarmac, to “talk about their grandchildren”, was just the top of the proverbial iceberg.

And, if the Senate follows through with its call for Former AG Lynch to appear before them, and if they ask the right questions, the Democrats and the MSM will get the “Obstruction Case” that they have been shouting to the heavens about.

And, there will be a President involved in it.

However, it will not be President Donald J. Trump.

It will be the 44th President, Barack Hussein Obama.

Because, boys and girls, if “Sweet” Loretta (from the song “Get Back” [Lennon/McCartney])starts singing, the fecal matter will hit the rotary oscillator…and travel uphill.

Start buying your popcorn now.

Until He Comes,

Instead of Blaming the Criminals for Chicago’s Out-of-Control Homicide Rate, AG Lynch Blames the Police

loretta-lynch-chicago-caro-603x377

Just when you thought that the Obama Administration could not get any more ignorant…

The Los Angeles Times reports that

In perhaps the most damning, sweeping critique ever of the Chicago Police Department, the U.S. Department of Justice concluded Friday that the city’s police officers are poorly trained and quick to turn to excessive and even deadly force, most often against blacks and Latino residents, without facing consequences.The 164-page report, the product of more than a year of investigation, paints the picture of a department flawed from top to bottom, although many of the problems it cites have, for decades, been the subject of complaints from citizens, lawsuits by attorneys and investigations by news organizations.

As such, the report is an indictment of sorts of city officials who, the report said, have paid lip service to the community’s complaints as well as the need for reform of the Police Department and the various city agencies responsible for its oversight.

Taken together, the Chicago Police Department’s flaws have “helped create a culture in which officers expect to use force and not be questioned about the need for or propriety of that use,” the Justice Department said in its report, made public Friday by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

In response to the federal investigation, Mayor Rahm Emanuel agreed to enter a court-enforced agreement with the Justice Department on a wide range of reforms, Lynch and other officials announced. While the report lauds some of the changes Emanuel has made to policing in recent months, it cautions that further reforms are needed and that real change is unlikely to last without outside monitoring.

What’s more, the report takes Emanuel to task for his efforts to get ahead of the report, saying some efforts have been insufficient.

For his part, the mayor continued to voice his backing of the federal investigation while at the same time insisting the report’s findings of systemic problems don’t portray most cops.

“The incidents described in this report are sobering to all of us,” he said. “Police misconduct will not be tolerated anywhere in the city of Chicago, and those who break the rules will be held accountable for their actions. Misconduct not only harms the individuals affected, it damages the reputation of the Chicago Police Department.

“At the same time, it is important to recognize that the incidents of misconduct cited in this report do not represent the values of the city of Chicago. And I believe firmly they do not represent the good work of the vast majority of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department, I said it earlier, who put their lives on the line every day.”

At a news conference, Lynch said the department’s pattern of excessive force “is in no small part the result of severely deficient training procedures and accountability systems.”

“CPD does not give its officers the training they need to do their jobs safely, effectively and lawfully,” Lynch said. “It fails to properly collect and analyze data, including data on misconduct complaints and training deficiencies, and it does not adequately review use-of-force incidents to determine whether force was appropriate or lawful or whether the use of force could’ve been avoided altogether.”

All of these issues, she said, have led to “low officer morale and erosion of officer accountability.”

On the contrary, ma’am…

The low officer morale comes from knowing that those in power in Democratically-controlled cities and in the Obama Administration, such as yourself, do not have their back.

And, America’s Municipal Police Forces are still accountable…to their own leadership.

No matter how badly  you and your boss wanted it…you failed in your effort to create a National Police Force.

No brown shirts for you.

But, why does Obama and his Administration hate our Men and Women in Blue?

From 1985 – 1988, President Barack Hussein Obama was a Community Organizer in Chicago. What does a Community Organizer do? I’m glad you asked.

Per Byron York in an article found at nationalreview.com:

Community organizing is most identified with the left-wing Chicago activist Saul Alinsky (1909-72), who pretty much defined the profession. In his classic book, Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote that a successful organizer should be “an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; to fan latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expressions.” Once such hostilities were “whipped up to a fighting pitch,” Alinsky continued, the organizer steered his group toward confrontation, in the form of picketing, demonstrating, and general hell-raising.

Obama was hired by Jerry Kellman, a New Yorker who had gotten into organizing in the 1960s. Kellman was trying to help laid-off factory workers on the far South Side of Chicago, in a nearly 100% black community. He led a group, the Calumet Community Religious Conference, that had been created by several local Catholic churches in the industrial community. Kellman was advised to hire a black organizer for a new spinoff from CCRC. They called it the Developing Communities Project, designed to focus solely on the Chicago part of the area.

One of Obama’s projects while he was there, was to try to build an alliance of white and black churches and enlist them in the cause of social justice. Obama had a problem, though. He didn’t go to church himself. And that, brothers and sisters, is how Obama, drawn to the preaching of Rev. Jeremiah Wright (and a political opportunity), joined Trinity United Church of Christ on 95th Street.

If you ask Obama’s fellow Community Organizers what his most significant accomplishments were, they’ll say two things: the expansion of a city summer-job program for South Side teenagers and the removal of asbestos from one of the area’s oldest housing projects. Those were his biggest victories.

Under the failed leadership of Former Community Activist, Barack Hussein Obama, America’s Law Enforcement Officers have been killed at an unprecedented rate  by cowards, seemingly emboldened by the Anti-Law Enforcement Rhetoric coming straight from the President and his Attorney Generals, first Eric Holder and now, Loretta Lynch.

bearing witness to Black and White Liberal Politicians making excuses for the out-of-control, self-inflicted genocide of 13% of America’s Population, as they blame it on “Racial Inequality”, while a Black Man sits behind a desk in the Oval Office at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, holding the most powerful leadership position in the Free World.

America’s Far Left Political Activists, including President Barack Hussein Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, have, for the last fyears, been attempting what is known in both sports and military strategy, as a “misdirection” play.

While these politicians and paid protesters shout about “equality” in front of every television camera that they can get in front of, at the same time, here in the real world, black children are being born into a situation which handicaps them from the start: the burden of an illegitimate birth and the reality of a fatherless home.

How many black children are being born out of wedlock?

Among non-Hispanic blacks, the figure is highest, at 72.2 percent; for American Indians/Alaska Natives, it’s 66.9 percent; 53.5 percent for Hispanics; 29.4 percent for non-Hispanic whites; and a mere 17.1 percent for Asians/Pacific Islanders.

These Americans, unlike the majority of us, are growing up without appropriate parental guidance, i.e., no one teaching them “the way in which they should go”

Why is this happening? How did we get here?

Back in the 60s, President Lyndon Johnson (whose big hand I once shook, at his ranch, as a little boy, after his presidential term) and the Democrats, brought forth a plan, called “the Great Society”. It was decided, in order to ensure that everyone would have an equal opportunity in America, that Uncle Sugar would step in to fill in the gaps.

Two seminal pieces of legislation were passed.

First, the Civil Rights Bill that JFK promised to sign, before his assassination, was passed into law. This Act banned discrimination based on race and gender in employment and ending segregation in all public facilities.

It also helped to cement in stone, minorities’ loyalty to the Democratic Party, which continues to this day.

The second bill that LBJ signed into law was the sweeping ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964. It created the Office of Economic Opportunity whose stated purpose was to attack the roots of American poverty. A Job Corps was then established to provide vocational training.

A preschool program designed to help disadvantaged students arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, named HEADSTART, was then established. Then came VOLUNTEERS IN SERVICE TO AMERICA (VISTA), which was set up as a domestic Peace Corps. Schools in impoverished American regions would now receive volunteer teaching attention. Federal funds were sent to struggling communities to attack unemployment and illiteracy.

What Johnson told Americans, as he campaigned in 1964, was that the establishment of this “Great Society” was going to eliminate the problems of America’s poor.

It had the opposite effect

The Great Society created a dependent class, which, instead of diminishing as it’s members joined the workforce, increased from generation to generation, relying on the federal government to provide their every need.

Uncle Sugar became Mother, Father, Preacher, and Doctor to generations of Americans. This “plantation mentality” continues to this day.

Instead of moving forward, by exercising the self-reliance that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached so well, these people I saw, were content on being “taken care of” by Uncle Sugar, as if being held down by their own poor, miserable circumstance, was a good thing.

Since August of 2014, the results of LBJ’s “Great Society” have been the lead story in seemingly, every television newscast, on every newspaper front page, and on every internet news/political website.

Dr. King, as we near the celebration of your birthday, I am sorry to tell you that racism and injustice is still going on in America. Unfortunately, it will not end any time soon, There are too many race-baiters profiting off of it.

Including, the outgoing (Thank God) President of the United States.

The part of your magnificent speech about “the content of their character” has been purposefully ignored by professional race-baiters, the “perpetually aggrieved”, and assorted politicians, all seeking their own fortune and glory.

Dr. King, your call for self-reliance took a back seat to their self-serving agenda, a long time ago.

It is much easier to blame America’s Thin Blue line for Black-on-Black Crime, than to accept personal responsibility and work to end it.

Clinton Vs. the FBI: Comey Defies the DOJ. Clinton Defies the Law.

tarmac-nrd-600

I’ll tell you from my heart, looking at their party further and further to the left, to paraphrase the director of the FBI: I think it would be extremely careless to elect Hillary Clinton.  – Republican Vice-Presidential Candidate Mike Pence

The Washington Post is running the following story on Page One this morning…

Deep divisions inside the FBI and the Justice Department over how to handle investigations dealing with Hillary Clinton will probably fester even after Tuesday’s presidential election and pose a significant test for James B. Comey’s leadership of the nation’s chief law enforcement agency.

The internal dissension has exploded into public view recently with leaks to reporters about a feud over the Clinton Foundation, an extraordinary airing of the agency’s infighting that comes as the bureau deals with an ongoing threat of terror at home and a newly aggressive posture from Russia.

Comey, meanwhile, has come under direct fire for his decision to tell Congress that agents were resuming their investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server — a revelation that put him at odds with his Justice Department bosses and influenced the presidential campaign.

“He’s got to get control of the ship again,” said Robert Anderson, a former senior official in the FBI who considers Comey a friend. “There’s a lot of tension in the organization, and there’s a lot of tension in Congress and the Senate right now, and all that counts toward how much people trust the FBI.”

Comey has been under fire since Friday from lawmakers in both parties and even President Obama for his decision to inform Congress of the new developments in the email probe just 11 days before Election Day. On Thursday, people familiar with the matter told The Washington Post that Comey had learned three weeks earlier of the discovery of new emails potentially relevant to the case, but did not take action to resume the email probe until he was formally briefed last week on what investigators had found.

Clinton, who seemed to have momentum in battleground state polls before Comey’s Friday bombshell, notably declined on Thursday to say whether, if elected, she would ask the FBI director to resign.

“I’m not going to, you know, either get ahead of myself by assuming I’ll be fortunate enough to be elected,” Clinton said, responding to a question from SiriusXM’s Joe Madison. “That’s really up to you and your listeners. People have to turn out, or nothing that I’m going to be proposing will come into reality, but I also would never comment on any kind of, you know, personnel issue.”

Comey was confirmed to a 10-year term in September 2013. While the law allows a president to remove an FBI director, the step is rarely taken out of respect for the independence of the position. President Bill Clinton removed Director William S. Sessions in 1993 amid allegations of ethical improprieties.

The pent-up frustration inside the FBI seemed to burst when Comey revealed in a brief letter to legislators that agents in an unrelated case had found emails potentially relevant to the Clinton email investigation.

The details, then and now, were scant. Officials familiar with the matter said the messages came from a computer seized in the investigation of disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Agents said the messages were associated with Abedin and Clinton. Abedin has told people she has no idea how the messages got on the device.

Although investigators had discovered the emails in early October, software glitches prevented them from separating Abedin-related emails from the hundreds of thousands of messages recovered until Oct. 19 or 20, according to people familiar with the case.

While Comey had been quickly alerted by his deputy to the original find, he took no further action, allowing agents in the field to get a better idea of the scope of the material. Agents could use digital clues to decipher where emails had originated and been sent but were legally barred from reading the emails without a search warrant because they had been obtained in a separate investigation.

When agents formally recommended on Oct. 27 that the warrant be sought, Comey agreed and then felt obligated to inform Congress — which he did with his letter the following day. Comey’s only reference in the letter to the timing of his involvement was that he had been briefed the previous day.

FBI spokesmen declined to comment on the timeline of Comey’s knowledge or on internal tensions.

The FBI obtained a warrant Sunday to analyze the messages for the Clinton investigation. It remains unclear if any of the newly discovered emails contain classified or other relevant information.

Comey had previously said he recommended that the Clinton email case be closed without charges.

Not long after Comey’s new letter to Congress was made public last week, multiple media outlets reported that he had sent the missive against the advice of top Justice Department officials, who felt that commenting publicly on the inquiry would violate a long-standing policy not to take overt steps in investigations that could have an impact so close to an election. Before the weekend was over, the Wall Street Journal revealed there was a different, ongoing feud between FBI agents in New York and career public integrity prosecutors at the Justice Department over whether there was cause to investigate the Clinton Foundation.

Addressing the controversy in an interview posted Wednesday by NowThis News, Obama hinted that he was unhappy about the amount of information being revealed.

“I do think that there is a norm that when there are investigations we don’t operate on innuendo, and we don’t operate on incomplete information, and we don’t operate on leaks,” he said.

Tensions had been thick between New York and Washington for months, dating to disagreements over how to handle the case of Eric Garner, the 43-year-old black man who died after being put in an apparent chokehold by a police officer. Officials in the Justice Department’s civil rights division wanted to move forward with a case against the police officer, but New York-based agents and prosecutors vehemently disagreed, according to people familiar with the case. The attorney general has yet to resolve the dispute.

In the case of the Clinton Foundation inquiry, it was the FBI agents pushing for stronger action.

In February, people familiar with the case said, agents made their case to public integrity prosecutors about why they should proceed with a probe looking broadly at whether donors to the Clinton family charity were given improper benefits by the Hillary Clinton-led State Department.

Justice Department attorneys and FBI officials in Washington viewed the agents’ presentation as lacking substantive evidence. The attorneys felt it relied too heavily on public reports and the book “Clinton Cash,” and denied the agents authority to move forward, according to people familiar with the discussions. The 2015 book, by conservative author Peter Schweizer, relied heavily on public records and presented a largely circumstantial case that State Department actions were driven by donations to the Clinton Foundation and payments to Bill Clinton.

The move frustrated some agents in New York. They felt they were being stymied by Justice Department higher-ups in Washington and pressed forward in ways they felt were permissible, according to people familiar with the case. In August, a Justice Department official got wind of those efforts and called a counterpart in the FBI to inquire about it, one of the people said. The agents thought they had reason to believe they should press forward, although their leaders were warned that they should not take any steps close to the election, the person said.

The people familiar with the matters declined to discuss the precise evidence that agents had obtained. The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that their work involved informants and recordings from unrelated corruption investigations.

Officials speaking with reporters on the condition of anonymity is common, and several did so for this report. But the level of specificity that has emerged in recent days about a politically sensitive investigation on the eve of an election is unusual — a sign of the deep tensions inside the Justice Department.

A spokeswoman for the FBI’s New York field office and spokesmen for the Justice Department and FBI headquarters declined to comment for this report. FBI Agents Association President Thomas F. O’Connor said in a statement: “Agents undertake all investigations with an unwavering focus on complying with the law and the Constitution, and perform their mission with integrity and professionalism. Any implication that Agents are unwilling or incapable of performing effective investigations — or implications that Agents do not respect the confidentiality of those investigations — is simply false.”

If Clinton is elected, Comey might have to contend with one or more investigations involving a sitting president. If she is not, he might face criticism for upending her bid.

Anderson, the former FBI official, said Comey will have to work quickly to finish the restarted email review, then talk to leaders and visit field offices to ease the tensions in the bureau and help mend public perceptions of the FBI. Comey has repeatedly said in the past that is important to him.

“I don’t know what your parents taught you, but mine always taught me you can’t care what people think about you. I do,” he said at a recent conference to mark the 10th anniversary of the Justice’s Department’s National Security Division. “I do because the institution I’m lucky enough to lead depends upon the American people believing that we are honest, competent and independent.”

Comey’s right.

As an average American, living in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State, I believe the FBI to be trustworthy.

The overwhelming majority of their agents have devoted their lives to the service of our nation.

These are the individuals that the Liberal Writer of this article in the Liberal Newspaper that is The Washington Post, referred to as the “Rank and File”…Law Enforcement Professionals performing a thankless job, encumbered by the political machinations of a Federal Government top-heavy with endless bureaucracy, originating from an Executive Branch being led  by a Community Organizer who is more concerned with righting perceived “historical wrongs” than he is about keeping our nation safe and upholding our nation’s laws.

On June 29th of this year, Former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch met in her private jet sitting on the tarmac on an airport tunway.

The next morning I wrote,

“Now, why would someone as smart as Bill Clinton, the former president of United States of America comma and attorney general Loretta Lynch, have a meeting that has such an appearance of impropriety?

There are several possibilities.

The first possibility it’s obvious. But I met with the attorney general in order to plead with her to let Hillary off the hook and to not invite her for her treasonous behavior in her email scandal.

The Clintons have always thought they were above the law. Hillary has left a trail of bodies between Arkansas and Washington DC, and nothing has ever happened to her. But comma even for the Clintons, such a blatant move would be inherently stupid. And, it would not help her presidential campaign one bit.

Or, perhaps it was Loretta Lynch’s camp that leaked the information of the clandestine meeting to the local news station in order to recuse herself from the matter. This could be possible because it is well-known that the FBI Director is a very honest man and a straight-up guy who will indict Hillary Clinton if the evidence is there to do so.

And, it is.

The last possible Theory as to why Bubba and Miss Loretta had the clandestine meeting on that jet is that he was trying to leverage her by offering her a possible position on the Supreme Court if Hillary gets elected President the United States of America. Again, the clintons have always considered themselves to be above the law and they’re not beyond political chicanery such as that.

The bottom line is, whatever the purpose of that meeting on the tarmac was, nothing will happen. Simply because, boys and girls, Democrat Politicians are above the rules that apply to you and me. It does not matter if there is an appearance of impropriety comma nor does it matter if actual political chicanery, including bribery, happened onboard that plane.

Up on Capitol Hill, nothing will happen.

However, out here in Flyover Country, things are already happening as Rasmussen Reports posted a national poll yesterday showing that Donald J. Trump has taken a four-point lead and popularity over Hillary Clinton.

In my opinion, this is a lead that will continue to grow as low-information voters wake up to the fact that Hillary Clinton is in this race for herself, and not for them.

Between the information that Donald Trump and his Campaign Staff are sharing about her and the revelations being made about her reprehensible Behavior as First Lady and the information being shared by a Former Secret Service Agent who witnessed it firsthand, the American people are watching Hillary Clinton’s mask drop.

And, it is not a very pretty sight to behold.

Because, as the old saying goes,

Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes to the Bone.”

Now, four days before the biggest election in decades, the only question remains, when will Hillary Clinton be indicted?

…I hate it when I’m right.

Because, despite what the Liberal Reporter writing for the Washington Post might believe, the fault for Hillary Clinton’s outing as a sleaze ball criminal, which has been the cause of her demise as a viable Presidential Candidate, does not lie with FBI Director Comey, nor the “rank and File” agents who pressured Comey into finally doing the right thing and re-opening the investigation.

The fault, boys and girls, hangs squarely on the shoulders of Hillary Clinton. herself and it is she who must face the consequences for selling her Public Office to the highest bidder.

As Sammy Davis, Jr. (look him up, children) used to sing in the song, “Keep Your Eye on the Sparrow (the theme from “Baretta”)”,

Don’t do the crime, if you can’t do the time.

Emailgate, The Rule of Law, and the “NeverTrumpers”

Cut-Off-600-nrdUp on Capitol Hill this morning, those who are supposed to be our Public Servants will put on a Dog and Pony Show, which promises to be interesting, but not impactful.

I hope that I am wrong.

Foxnews.com reports that

FBI Director James Comey will explain Thursday to House lawmakers his bombshell decision not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton over her handling of sensitive emails.

Comey, who took no questions after announcing his decision Tuesday, agreed to go before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee after several lawmakers sought an explanation. In saying he would not press the Justice Department to pursue an indictment against the likely Democrat nominee for president, Comey nonetheless laid out a strong case that she had violated laws regulating government employees’ safeguarding of sensitive emails.

“The FBI’s recommendation is surprising and confusing,” Committee Chairman Jason Chaffee, R-Utah, said. “The fact pattern presented by Director Comey makes clear Secretary Clinton violated the law. Individuals who intentionally skirt the law must be held accountable. Congress and the American people have a right to understand the depth and breadth of the FBI’s investigation.”

Comey said 110 emails in 52 email chains discovered on Clinton’s unauthorized server were classified at the time they were sent or received, including some that were “top secret.” He also said that while the probe did not prove Clinton’s server was hacked, it may have been – and he pointedly noted that she used unsecure devices while visiting countries hostile to the U.S.

In addition to Chaffee, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., wrote the FBI director demanding to know how he justified his decision.

House and Senate judiciary committees could also seek testimony from Comey and his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Lynch was already slated to testify next Tuesday at a House Oversight Committee hearing where Fox News has learned she will be questioned about the email investigation, and possibly her secret meeting with former President Bill Clinton just days before her department dropped the email case against the former first lady.

Coney’s decision was seen in many quarters as a punt. By branding Clinton’s use of unauthorized servers to send and receive sensitive — and in some cases top secret — information as “extremely careless,” Comey gave Clinton’s critics plenty of ammunition.

Rush Limbaugh made the following observations during his nationally syndicated Radio Program, yesterday…

Now, obviously criminal types have no respect for it, by definition.  But we’re not talking about criminals.  We’re talking about people in public life.  We’re talking about elected officials who campaign and seek our votes for all kinds of reasons.  And one of the things that is paramount in every election is the attempt to elect people who are of impeccable character, who are honest, who have integrity, who will thus respect the rule of law.  They run for president, they run for vice president, Senate, House, mayor, whatever, there is a United States Constitution, there are state constitutions, there is the oath of office.  It all matters.

We assume that the people who seek votes, who want to hold these high offices, we have always been able to assume they were people, we might disagree with politically or ideologically, but they had a common acceptance and reverence and respect for the governing documents that held the country together and defined it.  That’s what we’re losing here.  You can see it in the fight over the Second Amendment.  You can see it in any number of ways that the Democrats feel like they’re hamstrung by it.

To them, the Constitution is unfair, it’s too limiting, it’s is antiquated, it’s outdated, and it’s so insignificant now, you don’t even have to go through the legal process of amending it.  You can just ignore it because these are modern times, and it was written so long ago, and the Founders couldn’t possibly have anticipated what life would be like today.  Therefore, what they wrote should not be automatically applicable to life today.  That is the absence of respect for the rule of law.  And it’s exactly what’s happening.

Liberalism scares me, folks.  I come across here as adamantly opposed to it, but I do so because it scares me.  Liberalism, socialism, communism, they scare me. They frighten me because of what they portend life to become should they become dominant governmental mandates, should it become the way our government is operating.  Because it all equals the loss of liberty.

No matter how you slice it, the advent of liberalism, the spread of liberalism must, in order to spread, in order to grow, people have to lose freedom, people have to lose liberty, because liberalism is the amassing of power at the government level and as much as they can get.  And in order for them to have it, they have to take it.

As I was thinking about where to go at this point in this post, in regards to the chances of Presumptive Republican Candidate, Donald J. Trump, my mind (such as it is) began to analyze what Trump has said in the past.

If he had “played by the rules”, regarding upholding the Washingtonian Status Quo, he would not be where he is.

He continues to fight, not only those on the Democrat Side of the aisle, who are determined to make the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, our next President, but, also those Republicans, and self-proclaimed “True Conservatives”, who want to keep Trump from becoming President of the United States of America at all costs, even if it means sacrificing our children’s and grandchildren’s future to do it.

You have either watched them on television, encountered them on Facebook Political Pages, or attempted to have a conversation with them in person.

They are the #NeverTrumpers.

For example, once one of my favorite radio show hosts to listen to, Glenn Beck has, in the last couple of years, become unlistenable.

The times that I have tuned in, during the course of the Republican Primaries, it sounded like Beck was possessed with the spirit of the late, great Ricardo Montalban, in his scene-stealing role as Khan in “Star Trek II”. I still fully expect to hear him say at one point:

[quoting from Melville’s Moby Dick] To the last, I will grapple with thee… from Hell’s heart, I stab at thee! For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee!

As the spot-on cartoon that I used for the blog this morning, courtesy of the creative genius of Antonio F. Branco, illustrates, the #NeverTrumpers’ selfish obsession hurts themselves, as well as the country.

Holding one’s breath until they turn blue, or telling a Christian American Conservative that they are somehow condemned to Hell and are Unpatriotic, for voting for and supporting Donald J. Trump in his quest to become the next President of the United States of America, is not going to change the reality of the situation.

Neither will staying at home and not voting this November.

That’s been tried before.

That is how we got stuck with Petulant President Pantywaist.

Finally, if these “NeverTrumpers”, who claim to be Republicans, like Political Pundits Bill Kristol and George Will,  decide to pull a last-minute double-cross and have a Brokered Convention, or form a “Third Party”, nominating their own Moderate Milksop of a Presidential Candidate, America will be swearing-in Crooked Hillary as President next January.

Quite frankly…

If you hate Donald J. Trump so much, that you are willing to sacrifice America’s Future to get your “revenge”, seek professional help.

Or…change your last name to Khan…or Ahab.

We must never have someone who believes that they are above the law sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office in the most powerful position in the Free World.

Until He Comes,

Hillary to Meet With the FBI Today. Will She Plead the Fifth? Or, Will Her History of Lies Continue?


Today could very possibly be a pivotal point in the upcoming 2016 Presidential Election…and American History, itself.

The Daily Caller reports that

Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to meet Saturday with the FBI, a source close to the investigation into her private email server tells The Daily Caller.

The source went on to suggest the interview may take place at her Washington, D.C. home.

The bureau’s interview with the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is believed to be the final step in its investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information on Clinton’s private email server.

The depth and breadth of Hillary’s lying should come to no surprise to any American.

She has had a lifetime of practice.

In 1971, she arrived in Washington, D.C. to work on U.S. Senator Walter Mondale’s sub-committee on migrant workers. The next summer found her out west, working for the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern.Then, in the spring of 1974, Rodham became a member of the presidential impeachment inquiry staff, advising the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives during the Watergate Scandal.Her boss back then, Jerry Zeifman, now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, tells a very revealing story concerning her work there.According to Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former Yale Law Professor, Burke Marshall, also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair.When the Watergate Investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation. That made the Future First Lady and Secretary of State one of only three people who earned that badge of dishonor in Zeifman’s 17-year career.Why?

According to Zeifman,

Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.

Zeifman claims that she was one of several individuals including Marshall, Special Counsel John Doar, and Senior Associate Special Counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum, who plotted to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.

Zeifman believes  that they were deathly afraid of putting the break-in’s mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by Counsel to the President.  The reason being, Hunt had the goods regarding some dirty dealings  in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a kid busting open his Piggy Bank…dealings which purportedly included Kennedy’s complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.

Hillary and her associates were acting directly against the decision of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip O’Neill, who all believed that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel.

The reason that Hillary and the rest came up with the scheme is because they believed that they could gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon.

In order to pull off this scheme, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception.

Hillary wanted to present in her brief that there was no right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding. Zeifman told Hillary about the case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970….

As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by (then-House Minority Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer.

Douglas was allowed to keep counsel by the Judicial Committee in place at the time, which clearly established a precedent. Zeifman told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committee’s public files.

That was  a mistake, per Zeifman…

Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public.

Hillary then wrote a legal brief which argued that there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding…ignoring the Douglas case completely.

The brief was so laughingly fraudulent, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had ever actually submitted it to a judge.

Zeifman says that if Hillary and her associates had succeeded, members of the House Judiciary Committee would have also been denied the right to cross-examine witnesses, and denied the opportunity to even be a part of the drafting of articles of impeachment against Nixon.

President Richard M. Nixon resigned that August. (***courtesy of canadafreepress.com anddiscoverthenetworks.org)

On Jan. 8, 1996, in a still-relevant commentary titled“Blizzard of Lies,” New York Times columnist William Safire described Hillary Clinton as “a congenital liar.” Here are excerpts from that article.

Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar. Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.

1. Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that as the Governor’s wife she profited corruptly, her account being run by a lawyer for state poultry interests through a disreputable broker.

She lied for good reason: To admit otherwise would be to confess taking, and paying taxes on, what some think amounted to a $100,000 bribe.

2. The abuse of Presidential power known as Travelgate elicited another series of lies. She induced a White House lawyer to assert flatly to investigators that Mrs. Clinton did not order the firing of White House travel aides, who were then harassed by the F.B.I. and Justice Department to justify patronage replacement by Mrs. Clinton’s cronies.

Now we know, from a memo long concealed from investigators, that there would be “hell to pay” if the furious First Lady’s desires were scorned. The career of the lawyer who transmitted Hillary’s lie to authorities is now in jeopardy. Again, she lied with good reason: to avoid being identified as a vindictive political power player who used the F.B.I. to ruin the lives of people standing in the way of juicy patronage.

3. In the aftermath of the apparent suicide of her former partner and closest confidant, White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, she ordered the overturn of an agreement to allow the Justice Department to examine the files in the dead man’s office. Her closest friends and aides, under oath, have been blatantly disremembering this likely obstruction of justice, and may have to pay for supporting Hillary’s lie with jail terms.

Again, the lying was not irrational. Investigators believe that damning records from the Rose Law Firm, wrongfully kept in Vincent Foster’s White House office, were spirited out in the dead of night and hidden from the law for two years — in Hillary’s closet, in Web Hubbell’s basement before his felony conviction, in the President’s secretary’s personal files — before some were forced out last week.

…One reason for the Friday-night dribble of evidence from the White House is the discovery by the F.B.I. of copies of some of those records elsewhere. When Clinton witnesses are asked about specific items in “lost” records — which investigators have — the White House “finds” its copy and releases it. By concealing the Madison billing records two days beyond the statute of limitations, Hillary evaded a civil suit by bamboozled bank regulators.

Another reason for recent revelations is the imminent turning of former aides and partners of Hillary against her; they were willing to cover her lying when it advanced their careers, but are inclined to listen to their own lawyers when faced with perjury indictments.

So, now, here we are.

A Modern Madame Bovary, who has assumed power and vitality at the expense of others, from Arkansas to New York to Washington, DC, is about to be the Democrat Nominee for the Presidency of the greatest country on the Face of the Earth, with the present (in more ways than one) President as, apparently, her willing accomplice…and, an emaciated-appearing, crotchety, old Ex-President playing the role of Renfield to her incarnation of Dracula (“Yes, Mistress..heh heh…heh heh.”)

The late, great William Safire was a prophet.

Lying comes as naturally to The Former First Lady as breathing in and out.

As I have written, from the time she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee to wiping her private e-mail server, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

Machiavellian in political ambition and armed with a vocabulary that would make the legendary Gong Show Judge, Jaye P. Morgan, blush (look her up, kids), “the Hildebeast” has cut a wide swatch in her path to Political Power.

It should be obvious to Americans by now, that she believes that morality and ethics are for “the little people” (i.e., you and me).

We already have a congenital liar in the White House.

We certainly do not need another one.

Oh…and Ambassador Christopher Stevens remains unavailable for comment.

Bubba and Loretta: Everybody Sing…”We’re Meetin’ on a Jet Plane…”

Yesterday, average Americans witnessed what was either one of the dumbest moves in political campaign history or one of the shrewdest moves ever made by a sitting Attorney General.

Politico.Com reports that

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest praised Attorney Gen. Loretta Lynch for her direct answer to questions about her tarmac summit with former President Bill Clinton.

The same could not be said of Earnest’s own answers to questions about its propriety.

Repeatedly, reporters on Thursday asked Earnest whether President Barack Obama approved of Clinton’s social visit with Lynch and her husband as her plane sat at the Phoenix airport on Tuesday even as her Justice Department investigates Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in the midst of a presidential campaign. Repeatedly, Earnest deflected, instead stressing Obama’s insistence that the investigation should be conducted without political interference – and Lynch’s record on upholding that principle.

“I wasn’t there for the meeting,” Earnest said when pressed on whether the White House was concerned not simply about how the meeting might affect the underlying investigation but rather how the mere fact of it could create the appearance of political influence. “But the attorney general was, she was asked a direct question about it, and she answered it. Again, I think that was consistent with everybody’s expectations.”

Lynch told reporters Tuesday that her conversation with Clinton “was a great deal about his grandchildren. It was primarily social and about our travels; he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix.”

Lynch also noted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s inquiry into Clinton’s private email server at the State Department is being conducted by career agents.

But her answers haven’t quieted criticism. Donald Trump pointed to it as evidence of a “rigged system,” and this Sun Belt runway equivalent of the much-maligned Georgetown cocktail party plays easily into the hands of anti-establishment critics.

Even some Democratic lawmakers have said the meeting “doesn’t send the right signal,” as Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) put it in a television interview Thursday.

While Earnest wouldn’t “second-guess” the investigation or pass judgment on Lynch’s meeting, he did acknowledge that it deserved scrutiny – and that she did need to offer the public some reassurance.

Uh huh.

I think that I may have a clue as to what Loretta and Bubba talked about on that jet.

The Daily Caller reports that

Department of Justice officials filed a motion in federal court late Wednesday seeking a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a closely allied public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch.


If the court permits the delay, the public won’t be able to read the communications until October 2018, about 22 months into her prospective first term as President. The four senior Clinton aides involved were Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Michael Fuchs, Ambassador-At-Large Melanne Verveer, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin.


Convenient, huh?

The meeting occurred just hours before the Department of Justice asked for the delay.

Now, why would someone as smart as Bill Clinton, the former president of United States of America comma and attorney general Loretta Lynch, have a meeting that has such an appearance of impropriety?

There are several possibilities.

The first possibility it’s obvious. But I met with the attorney general in order to plead with her to let Hillary off the hook and to not invite her for her treasonous behavior in her email scandal.

The Clintons have always thought they were above the law. Hillary has left a trail of bodies between Arkansas and Washington DC, and nothing has ever happened to her. But comma even for the clintons, such a blatant move would be inherently stupid. And, it would not help her presidential campaign one bit.

Or, perhaps it was Loretta Lynch’s camp that leaked the information of the clandestine meeting to the local news station in order to recuse herself from the matter. This could be possible because it is well known that the FBI Director is a very honest man and a straight-up guy who will indict Hillary Clinton if the evidence is there to do so.

And, it is.

The last possible Theory as to why Bubba and Miss Loretta had the clandestine meeting on that jet is that he was trying to leverage her by offering her a possible position on the Supreme Court if Hillary gets elected President the United States of America. Again, the clintons have always considered themselves to be above the law and they’re not beyond political chicanery such as that.

The bottom line is, whatever the purpose of that meeting on the tarmac was, nothing will happen. Simply because, boys and girls, Democrat Politicians areabove the rules that apply to you and me. It does not matter if there is an appearance of impropriety comma nor does it matter if actual political chicanery,including bribery, happened onboard that plane.

Up on Capitol Hill, nothing will happen.

However, out here in Flyover Country, things are already happening as Rasmussen Reports posted a national poll yesterday showing that Donald J. Trump has taken a four-point lead and popularity over Hillary Clinton.

In my opinion, this is a lead that will continue to grow as low-information voters wake up to the fact that Hillary Clinton is in this race for herself, and not for them.

Between the information that Donald Trump and his Campaign Staff are sharing about her and the revelations being made about her reprehensible Behavior as First Lady and the information being shared by a Former Secret Service Agent who witnessed it firsthand, the American people are watching Hillary Clinton’s mask drop.

And, it is not a very pretty sight to behold.

Because, as the old saying goes,

Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes to the Bone.

The Orlando Massacre: Feds Change “Allah” to “God” in Transcript of Omar Mateen’s 911 Call…Deliberately

Bigot-Alert-LI-600Evil is a real thing. Morality is not relative and ethics are not situational. Mental illness is a real thing, also, but too often it is used as an excuse to avoid confronting the harsh reality of evil. – kingsjester, 6/21/16

Breitbart.com reports that

Monday’s release of the text of Orlando terrorist shooter Omar Mateen’s 9-1-1 call is not the first time the Obama administration purportedly scrubbed “Allah” from a transcript.

To this day, the official White House transcript of a Rose Garden ceremony with the father of released soldier Bowe Bergdahl transcribes every word besides Robert Bergdahl’s Arabic declaration of “Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim.”  That means “In the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate.”

The White House website provides a video of the ceremony, at which the controversial prisoner swap for Berghdahl in exchange for five Taliban members who were being held at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay was announced.

In the video, Robert Bergdahl can clearly be heard making the declaration to Allah.

Yet, here is the relevant portion of the official transcript, as provided by the White House:

I’d like to say to Bowe right now, who is having trouble speaking English — (speaks in Pashto) — I’m your father, Bowe.

The “Pashto” is actually Arabic.

Afterwards, the Daily Mail cited a report that the Taliban were “thrilled” at the declaration to Allah.

The newspaper reported:

The Arabic phrase bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim appears prominently in the Koran and means ‘In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful’.

Sara Carter, senior Washington correspondent for conservative news network TheBlaze, said her Taliban sources were ‘thrilled’ at the phrase being used.

At the time, former CIA officer Clare Lopez explained of the Arabic declaration, “These are the opening words of every chapter of the Qur’an except one (the chapter of the sword – the 9th).”

“By uttering these words on the grounds of the WH, Bergdahl (the father) sanctified the WH and claimed it for Islam,” Lopez charged.

Brigitte Gabriel of Act for America told Fox News that the expression declares the greatness of Allah, and she called it a “war cry of Allah.”

Zuhdi Jasser, an advocate for moderate Islam, told Fox News that he uses the phrase daily in his prayers and that the expression is not necessarily radical.

On Monday, the FBI finally released what it said was a full transcript of Mateen’s 50-second call with a 911 operator while he was perpetrating the deadly attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. After first releasing a redacted transcript that deleted references to the Islamic State, the FBI released the full transcript, which included an English translation changing the word “Allah” to “God.”

So, why is this noteworthy…and wrong?

Every time a Radical Islamist commits a mass murder in the name of Allah, whether overseas or on American Soil, I continue to hear and read from Modern American Liberals, “The Smartest People in the Room”, that there is not any difference between American Christianity and Radical Islam.

Quite frankly, that’s like saying that there’s no difference between Mister Rogers and Ted Bundy (look them up, children).

In Islam, the way to “walk with God and escape his judgement on that final day of judgment” is through ‘falah’, which means self-effort or positive achievement. The faithful must submit to God and follow all of his laws as found in the Koran. Judgment day in Islam involves some sort of measurement of what the believer has done wrong and what they have done right. And, even then, you might not be let into heaven if Allah decides you’re not good enough.

This is the direct opposite of Christianity.

According to the Bible, no man can ever be good enough to deserve God’s favor, to win God’s heaven, because from birth we have Free Will. This Free Will may cause us to reject God and live our lives our own way. That’s why it was necessary for Jesus Christ to die for our sins, covering us in His blood of the New Covenant.

God’s Word tells us that what we need is not ‘falah,’ but faith. To have faith in, to trust, to rely on Jesus and his death as as “the expiation for our sins”. Those who have been Saved by Jesus Christ can be sure that in the future God will welcome them into heaven with wide open arms, because they have been washed by His blood.

Islam and Christianity present two very different Deities, who may share some similarities, but who have different identities and ultimately different standards. To pretend they are the same is not only to be clueless of the faith of 76% of the citizens of this nation, but, to be ignorant of an integral part of our American Heritage, the legacy of Christian Faith, which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us.

Now, I am not saying that every Muslim is on a jihad against “the infidels”.

However…

When Christians become “radicalized”, we want to share the testimony of what God has done for us through His love, with everyone we meet. We get involved in our local church and we become better fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, and American Citizens.

When Muslims become “radicalized”, they want to kill the Infidels in the Name of Allah the Merciful”.

And, the thing is, The Quran tells them to do it.

What does the Islamic Book of Faith, the Koran (Quran) say about “killing in the Name of the Prophet (Mohammed)”?

Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”
Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”
Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-” This passage criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes. It also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).
Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…” Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?
Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.
While I have met some very nice American Muslims, I have also been inside a mosque where I was looked at as if they wanted to take a scimitar to my neck.

Gosh. I have no idea how Americans could have ever associated Islam with Radical Islamic Terrorism.

After all, those were Southern Baptists who killed over 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001, weren’t they?

If Moderate Muslims are not behind their radical brethren’s eternal jihad against us infidels, they need to get their mugs in front of the cable news networks’ TV cameras and say so…like Dr. Jasser does on Fox News.

Unfortunately, the good doctor is an aberration.

All one usually sees representing “Moderate Muslims” on the news programs, are the abrasive members of CAIR, blaming America for all the world’s troubles.

Finally, as exemplified by Obama, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the Department of , and Professional and self-Proclaimed Political Pundits all over the World Wide Web, including the Social Media, why are American Liberals so naively defending these barbarians and desperately trying to equate a Political Ideology disguised as a religion to Christianity, the faith of 75% of America’s Population?

Are they so contrary, as to not realize that Radical Islam punishes every single social issue that American Liberals so “righteously” defend in this nation?

The maddening thing is that every time you challenge Lon this fact, they incessantly trot out the false equivalency that I just referenced.

For Liberals to deny that monsters like the Mass Murderer Omar Mateen were devout Muslims, and to refuse to identify Islamic Terrorism, and to provide cover for it, whether to false equivalencies, or proclaiming the Terrorist to be “mentally ill”, when Islamic Terrorism rears its ugly head, is disingenuous at best, and just plain out-and-out lying at worst.

The only way to successfully fight EVIL…is to identify it as such.

E-mailgate: FBI Offers Staffer Immunity While the Potential President Proceeds With Her Prevarications

Her-shadow-600-LI (2)As the “Inevitable” Democrat Presidential Candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, continues her march toward that Political Party’s Nomination, the FBI Investigation into the mishandling of Top Secret E-mails by her and her staff, while she was the Secretary of State, continues to grow.

The Washington Post reports that

The Justice Department has granted immunity to a former State Department staffer, who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private email server, as part of a criminal investigation into the possible mishandling of classified information, according to a senior law enforcement official.

The official said the FBI had secured the cooperation of Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009.

As the FBI looks to wrap up its investigation in the coming months, agents are likely to want to interview Clinton and her senior aides about the decision to use a private server, how it was set up, and whether any of the participants knew they were sending classified information in emails, current and former officials said.

The inquiry comes against a political backdrop in which Clinton is the favorite to secure the Democratic nomination for the presidency.

So far, there is no indication that prosecutors have convened a grand jury in the email investigation to subpoena testimony or documents, which would require the participation of a U.S. attorney’s office.

“There was wrongdoing,” said a former senior law enforcement official. “But was it criminal wrongdoing?”

Clinton has since apologized for what happened: “Yes, I should have used two email addresses, one for personal matters and one for my work at the State Department. Not doing so was a mistake. I’m sorry about it, and I take full responsibility.” 

Any decision to charge someone would involve Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch, who told Congress when asked last month about the email inquiry: “That matter is being handled by career independent law enforcement agents, FBI agents, as well as the career independent attorneys in the Department of Justice. They follow the evidence, they look at the law and they’ll make a recommendation to me when the time is appropriate.”

The fact that there is ambivalence concerning going forward with an indictment is not a surprise.

There is too much at stake.

The depth and breadth of Hillary’s lying is no surprise, either.

She has had a lifetime of practice.

In 1971, she arrived in Washington, D.C. to work on U.S. Senator Walter Mondale’s sub-committee on migrant workers. The next summer found her out west, working for the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern.Then, in the spring of 1974, Rodham became a member of the presidential impeachment inquiry staff, advising the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives during the Watergate Scandal.Her boss back then, Jerry Zeifman, now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, tells a very revealing story concerning her work there.According to Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former Yale Law Professor, Burke Marshall, also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair.When the Watergate Investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation. That made the Future First Lady and Secretary of State one of only three people who earned that badge of dishonor in Zeifman’s 17-year career.Why?

According to Zeifman,

Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.

Zeifman claims that she was one of several individuals including Marshall, Special Counsel John Doar, and Senior Associate Special Counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum, who plotted to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.

Zeifman believes  that they were deathly afraid of putting the break-in’s mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by Counsel to the President.  The reason being, Hunt had the goods regarding some dirty dealings  in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a kid busting open his Piggy Bank…dealings which purportedly included Kennedy’s complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.

Hillary and her associates were acting directly against the decision of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip O’Neill, who all believed that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel.

The reason that Hillary and the rest came up with the scheme is because they believed that they could gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon.

In order to pull off this scheme, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception.

Hillary wanted to present in her brief that there was no right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding. Zeifman told Hillary about the case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970….

As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by (then-House Minority Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer.

Douglas was allowed to keep counsel by the Judicial Committee in place at the time, which clearly established a precedent. Zeifman told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committee’s public files.

That was  a mistake, per Zeifman…

Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public.

Hillary then wrote a legal brief which argued that there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding…ignoring the Douglas case completely.

The brief was so laughingly fraudulent, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had ever actually submitted it to a judge.

Zeifman says that if Hillary and her associates had succeeded, members of the House Judiciary Committee would have also been denied the right to cross-examine witnesses, and denied the opportunity to even be a part of the drafting of articles of impeachment against Nixon.

On Jan. 8, 1996, in a still-relevant commentary titled “Blizzard of Lies,” New York Times columnist William Safire described Hillary Clinton as “a congenital liar.” Here are excerpts from that article.

Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar. Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.

1. Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that as the Governor’s wife she profited corruptly, her account being run by a lawyer for state poultry interests through a disreputable broker.

She lied for good reason: To admit otherwise would be to confess taking, and paying taxes on, what some think amounted to a $100,000 bribe.

2. The abuse of Presidential power known as Travelgate elicited another series of lies. She induced a White House lawyer to assert flatly to investigators that Mrs. Clinton did not order the firing of White House travel aides, who were then harassed by the F.B.I. and Justice Department to justify patronage replacement by Mrs. Clinton’s cronies.

Now we know, from a memo long concealed from investigators, that there would be “hell to pay” if the furious First Lady’s desires were scorned. The career of the lawyer who transmitted Hillary’s lie to authorities is now in jeopardy. Again, she lied with good reason: to avoid being identified as a vindictive political power player who used the F.B.I. to ruin the lives of people standing in the way of juicy patronage.

3. In the aftermath of the apparent suicide of her former partner and closest confidant, White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, she ordered the overturn of an agreement to allow the Justice Department to examine the files in the dead man’s office. Her closest friends and aides, under oath, have been blatantly disremembering this likely obstruction of justice, and may have to pay for supporting Hillary’s lie with jail terms.

Again, the lying was not irrational. Investigators believe that damning records from the Rose Law Firm, wrongfully kept in Vincent Foster’s White House office, were spirited out in the dead of night and hidden from the law for two years — in Hillary’s closet, in Web Hubbell’s basement before his felony conviction, in the President’s secretary’s personal files — before some were forced out last week.

…One reason for the Friday-night dribble of evidence from the White House is the discovery by the F.B.I. of copies of some of those records elsewhere. When Clinton witnesses are asked about specific items in “lost” records — which investigators have — the White House “finds” its copy and releases it. By concealing the Madison billing records two days beyond the statute of limitations, Hillary evaded a civil suit by bamboozled bank regulators.

Another reason for recent revelations is the imminent turning of former aides and partners of Hillary against her; they were willing to cover her lying when it advanced their careers, but are inclined to listen to their own lawyers when faced with perjury indictments.

So, now, here we are.

A Modern Madame Bovary, who has assumed power and vitality at the expense of others, from Arkansas to New York to Washington, DC, is about to be the Democrat Nominee for the Presidency of the greatest country on the Face of the Earth, with the present (in more ways than one) President as, apparently, her willing accomplice…and, an emaciated-appearing, crotchety, old Ex-President playing the role of Renfield to her incarnation of Dracula (“Yes, Mistress..heh heh…heh heh.”)

The late, great William Safire was a prophet.

Lying comes as naturally to The Former First Lady as breathing in and out.

As I have written, from the time she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee to wiping her private e-mail server, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

Machiavellian in political ambition and armed with a vocabulary that would make the legendary Gong Show Judge, Jaye P. Morgan, blush (look her up, kids), “the Hildebeast” has cut a wide swatch in her path to Political Power.

It should be obvious to Americans by now, that she believes that morality and ethics are for “the little people” (i.e., you and me).

We already have a congenital liar in the White House.

We certainly do not need another one.

Oh…and Ambassador Christopher Stevens remains unavailable for comment.

Until He Comes,
