Rosenstein Slams Comey, CNN, and MSNBC on Twitter…Why Comey’s Troubles are Just Beginning

gty-ap-rod-rosenstein-james-comey-split-mt-170512_16x9_992

FoxNews.com reports that

Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein took an apparent shot at former FBI Director James Comey on Twitter Thursday and derided commentators from CNN and MSNBC following the release of the Justice Department inspector general’s report.

While Rosenstein didn’t explicitly mention Comey, his initial tweet quoted a letter in which he cautioned against violating Justice Department policy because of short-term circumstances.

“It is important for the Department of Justice to follow established policies and procedures, especially when the stakes are high,” Rosenstein wrote.

In the preceding paragraph, he mentioned that Comey seemed to argue that circumstances justified both his disclosures about the Russia investigation and his 2016 letter about the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“It may seem tempting to depart from Department policies and traditions in an effort to deflect short-term criticism, but such deviations ultimately may cause a loss of public confidence in the even-handed administration of justice,” Rosenstein added. “We should be most on guard when we believe that our own uncomfortable present circumstances justify ignoring timeless principles respected by our predecessors.”

Rosenstein’s tweet came as Comey responded to a critical Inspector General report by highlighting its conclusion that he didn’t leak any classified information — despite the fact that the report also blasted his decision to violate FBI policies.

CNN Legal Analyst Renato Mariotti responded to Rosenstein by accusing him of a double standard, arguing that the deputy failed to call out Attorney General William Barr.

“You speak up about Comey failing to ‘follow established policies and procedures’ but stood silently beside Barr when he misled the public about Trump,” Mariotti said, apparently referring to Barr’s decision to summarize former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation.

Mariotti also criticized the president, accusing Trump of using “his power to try to quash investigations of him and his friends.”

Rosenstein responded to Mariotti by saying: “Notice how this pundit completely misses the point and thereby illustrates it.”

The former deputy attorney general also called out MSNBC analyst Matthew Miller, who criticized the inspector general’s claim that Comey set a dangerous precedent by ignoring FBI policy.

“Asinine. Comey did what he did because the president was actively trying to dismantle DOJ’s normal way of operating,” Miller tweeted.

“The AG [Jeff Sessions] and the DAG [Rosenstein] were both complicit, so Comey had no where [sic] else to take his concerns,” Miller added.

Rosenstein responded by linking to Miller’s own Washington Post op-ed which blasted Comey’s “abuse of power” in the Clinton email investigation.

“Another pundit illustrates my point: In 2016, he agreed policy violations ‘should trouble anyone who believes in the rule of law and fundamental principles of fairness’ Rosenstein tweeted. “Many employees dislike supervisors, but most keep faith with government institutions.”

However, as average Americans found out during the Obama Administration, the rules did not apply to the Obamas or anyone who worked for them, as James Comey did.

Let’s face it, y’all…Former FBI Director James Comey is a self-righteous Prima Donna, not unlike the Democrats in the House of Representatives.

People like Comey believe themselves to be smarter than everyone else.  So therefore, the rules do not apply to them.

I am certain that when he found out that President Trump was going to keep him on as FBI Director, he, along with his “fellow travelers” conspired as to use his position to aid in the ongoing Deep State Operation to remove President Trump from office.

So, why is the Department of Justice not seeking to file charges against Comey?

I am guessing it is because he will be charged along with other members of the “Silent Coup” Operations Team for FISA Abuse, which is a part of the DOJ Probe which was ordered by Attorney General Barr and is currently being carried out by U.S. Attorney John Durham.

In fact, FoxNews.com reported on August 8th that

The FBI formally documented the anti-Trump bias of British ex-spy Christopher Steele months shortly after the November 2016 presidential election — yet despite the red flags, continued to use his unverified dossier in multiple Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application renewals, records obtained by Fox News show.

The partially redacted documents, first obtained by Judicial Watch, also revealed that top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr maintained contact with Steele for at least six months after Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in November 2016.

The records further confirm that Ohr knew of Steele’s anti-Trump bias before the 2016 election.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday evening. “I know personally there’s a lot more out there.”

The summaries of FBI interviews with Ohr, known as 302s, showed that Ohr knew by September 2016 — a month before the initial FISA application to surveil the Trump campaign — that Steele was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being the U.S. President.”

A source close to the matter told Fox News “this had the effect of putting a senior DOJ official on notice that a witness/source had an extreme bias.”

Nevertheless, the FISA warrant application went through in October 2016 with multiple renewals.

Of course, to this day Comey denies knowing who funded the Steele Dossier.

If you believe that the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not know what his top agents were involved in nor have any knowledge of the Secretary of State’s activities and those of her confidantes’, I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis, Tennessee to sell you.

President Ronald Reagan used to say that the nine words that you never want to hear were

I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

The Deep State Operatives within the FBI and the DOJ conspired to overturn the results of the 2016 Presidential Election via means of a seditious plot which like a Machiavellian spider’s web, reached into the Halls of Power in Washington, D.C.

Being political appointees holding political opinions, while carrying political obligations to a certain political party, never bodes well in a position of legal authority.

Add into that mix an extra-marital affair between these bureaucrats and, to paraphrase, “the affairs of mice and men (and agents) will indeed go awry”.

I’ve got a feeling that very soon Former FBI Director James Comey and his co-consirators will find the spotlight of justice shining directly upon them.

And, like cockroaches in a kitchen in a Raid commercial, when the lights comes on, there will be a reckoning.

After Mueller – Dems to Continue “Investigations”, Prove Denial Not Just River in Egypt

90 (5)

FoxNews.com reports that

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a blistering statement Sunday that Attorney General William Barr is “not a neutral observer,” urging the full release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report after Barr penned a letter summarizing Mueller’s findings.

Pelosi, D-Calif., and Schumer, D-N.Y., said Barr’s letter to Congress “raises as many questions as it answers.”

In their joint statement, the leaders said Barr’s past “bias” against the special counsel’s inquiry showed he was “not in a position to make objective determinations.”

They added, “the fact that Mueller’s report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay.”

Barr wrote that Mueller did not establish evidence that President Trump’s team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 election — “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.” He also wrote that on obstruction-of-justice claims, “The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’”

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., also released a statement dovetailing with top Democratic leadership: “Attorney General Barr has the authority to make the full Mueller findings public with minimal redactions. He must do so as quickly as possible. The ‘summary’ document he provided today creates more questions than it answers, particularly with respect to obstruction of justice by the President.”

He added: “The American people – who for two years have waited patiently for the Mueller investigation to conclude – deserve the full truth in Special Counsel Mueller’s own words.”

The heads of three of the House’s most influential committees also said the full report on Russian election interference and Trump must be made public.

Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. and Elijah Cummings, D-Md. – the chairs respectively of the House Intelligence, Judiciary and Oversight Committees – issued a joint statement Sunday, noting: “We … call for Attorney General Barr to come forward to testify before the House Judiciary Committee without delay.  Far from the ‘total exoneration’ claimed by the President, the Mueller report expressly does not exonerate the President.  Instead, it ‘sets out evidence on both sides of the question’ of obstruction—including the evidence that President Trump attempted to obstruct justice.”

They added: “These shortcomings in today’s letter are the very reason our nation has a system of separation of powers.  We cannot simply rely on what may be a partisan interpretation of facts uncovered during the course of a 22-month review of possible wrongdoing by the President. The American people deserve to see the facts and judge the President’s actions for themselves.”

Attorney General Barr and Asst. Director of the DOJ Rosenstein thoroughly reviewed the report and determined that there was no collusion and no obstruction of justice.

However, that is not good enough for the Democrats in the House and Senate.

Make no mistake about this, gentle readers, they are not asking for the release of the full report because they care about the cause of justice or the wellbeing of American Citizens.

Just as it was in the case of their support for Special Counsel Mueller and his team of Investigators comprised of 19 Democratic Donors, the Democrats want to obstruct, delay, and derail President Trump from his mission to fulfill the Campaign Promises which he made to Americans.

Also, just as I have been writing concerning the Mueller Investigation for the last two plus years, the REAL story remains the corruption of the Obama Administration. Specifically, all of the malfeasance of Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, including E-mailgate, the Clinton Foundation Pay-for-Pay Scandal, Uranium One, and the Benghazi Massacre.

For the Democrats in the House of Representatives to perpetuate a false narrative through the arduous and interminable schedule of “Investigative Hearings” which they have announced with vengeful glee, they have willingly bought in to an exercise in futility which will do nothing but deepen the hole which they have already dug for themselves with average Americans even deeper.

As I have repeatedly warned, by concentrating their energies and the taxpayers’ time and money on their vendetta against the 45th President, instead of actually bringing up legislation that would help average Americans, they are not only liable to lose their phony boloney jobs in Washington, they will once again (at least) be denied the Presidency, as well.

However, thinking about it, their hate for Trump and us “Deplorables” is all they have.

The President and the American Citizens who voted for him, stand in the way of their goal to bring Marxism in the form of “Democratic Socialism” to “The Shining City Upon a Hill”, subsequently turning America into a Third World Barrio.

Hopefully, the Far Left Democrats and their “New Bolsheviks” will eventually figure out that average Americans still do not want what they are offering.

If we did, we would be suffering under the thumb of President Hillary Clinton.

And, since there was NO RUSSIAN COLLUSION by President Trump or his Campaign Staff, it means that Americans were the ones who stopped Hillary Clinton from becoming President.

Perhaps the Democrats should stop their tantrum long enough to reflect on that for a while.

Rosenstein to Step Down in Mid-March…Why Not Fire Him Now?

ap-rod-rosenstein (2)

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1097690731882446849

FoxNews.com reports that

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave his role at the Justice Department by mid-March, a senior DOJ official told Fox News on Monday.

An official announcement of who has been selected to replace Rosenstein could come as early as this week. A Trump administration official added that Attorney General William Barr has picked Jeffrey Rosen, who currently serves as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation, to take over for Rosenstein.

A graduate of Northwestern University and Harvard Law School, Rosen previously served as General Counsel and Senior Policy Advisor for the White House Office of Management and Budget (2006 to 2009) and as General Counsel at the Department of Transportation (2003 to 2006), according to his online biography.

Rosen, confirmed for his current role by the Senate in May 2017, works under Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao in overseeing the daily operations of the department.

Fox News reported in January that Rosenstein was expected to step down in the coming weeks to ensure a smooth transition for Barr, who was sworn-in on Thursday.

Rosenstein long thought of his role as a two-year position and the two-year mark is coming soon, officials close to the departing attorney general previously told Fox News.

Speculation of Rosenstein’s departure mounted after the firing of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in November. He has, until recently, overseen Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into whether Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election. Rosenstein has often been a target of President Trump on Twitter.

Most recently, Trump accused Rosenstein, along with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, of pursuing an “illegal and treasonous” plot against him after McCabe detailed private DOJ discussions about secretly recording and potentially ousting the president.

“He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught,” the president tweeted early Monday.

Trump continued: “There is a lot of explaining to do to the millions of people who had just elected a president who they really like and who has done a great job for them with the Military, Vets, Economy and so much more. This was the illegal and treasonous ‘insurance policy’ in full action!”

Rosenstein, who was nominated to his post by Trump in 2017, repeatedly has denied he “pursued or authorized recording the president” and also has denied McCabe’s suggestion that the deputy attorney general had broached the idea of invoking the Constitution’s 25th Amendment, which allows Cabinet members to seek the removal of a president if they conclude that he or she is mentally unfit.

The Justice Department echoed both denials in a statement released last week, saying Rosenstein “was not in a position to consider invoking the 25th Amendment.”

Last summer, 11 House Republicans introduced five articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The impeachment articles accused Rosenstein of intentionally withholding documents and information from Congress, failure to comply with congressional subpoenas and abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

At the time, I wrote

The Hierarchy of the DOJ, like our municipal police organizations around the nation, are supposed to “serve and protect” the citizens of our great country.

Not themselves and the Democratic Party.

The silly games which Rosenstein and the Hierarchy of the FBI and the Special Counsel which he appointed have been playing for the entirety of the Trump Presidency became old, stale, and unappreciated by the American Public a long time ago.

A Deputy Attorney General of the Department of Justice has repeatedly told members of the House of Representatives that he did not know diddly-squat about the activities of those under him.

If you buy that, I would like to talk to you about purchasing a lifetime membership in the Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez Center for Rational Thought.

It is time to begin the process of restoring the System of Checks and Balances to the Three Branches of Government which our Founding Fathers so magnificently created and bequeathed to us.

Certain representatives of the Judicial Branch have decided that they outrank the Legislative and the Executive.

The Founders created all three branches to be servants of the American People.

It’s time to re-introduce Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to a concept personified by a statue, known as “Blind Justice”.

Little did any of us suspect the depth of Rosenstein’s involvement in the Deep State Operation which began under the Obama Administration to first keep Trump from becoming president and then to somehow, someway force him out of office.

That operation began as election tampering, just as Obama tried in Israel to get rid of Netanyahu. When that did not work (again), the Deep State Operatives, with Rosenstein involved, came up with a plot to overthrow the president through the use of the 25th Amendment.

That, gentle readers, constitutes sedition and treason. There are no other words for what they attempted to do.

Back in the time of President Lincoln, Rosenstein and his co-conspirators would have already been executed by hanging or firing squad.

This weasel is being allowed to retire from government service with a big fat pension.

I believe that President Trump not only needs to fire Rosenstein immediately, he needs to have new Attorney General Barr begin investigations on the Deep State Operation that began under Obama and Hillary, also opening back up investigations on Hillary’s “E-mailgate” and the Pay For Play Scheme known as the Clinton Foundation.

And, while AG Barr is at it, he needs to investigate Adam Schiff’s connection to Fusion GPS.

It is way past time to play hardball with those who wished to overturn the will of the American people and to overthrow a sitting president.

The Democrats’ Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Donald-Trump-smug-feature

Yesterday started out as a great day for the Democratic Party.

They had won the majority of seats in the House of Representatives and were already making plans to use what they perceived as a “bully pulpit” to somehow, someway get rid of Republican President Donald J. Trump, who had the temerity to defeat their candidate, the Chosen One, Hillary Clinton, in the 2018 Presidential Election.

This was their chance to impeach the usurper, using their House Majority Status, the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and the support of the Deep State Operatives in the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats were counting their chickens before they hatched.

And now, to paraphrase the Reverend Jeremiah Wright,

The Democrats’ chickeeens have come home…to roost!

Yesterday morning, the news broke that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had been asked to resign and President Trump had appointed a temporary successor in the form of Matthew Whitaker, Session’s Chief of Staff.

According to FoxNews.com,

Whitaker has previously written an op-ed in 2017 in which he argued that “any investigation into President Trump’s finances or the finances of his family would require Mueller to return to Rod Rosenstein for additional authority under Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.”

Whitaker continued, “If he were to continue to investigate the financial relationships without a broadened scope in his appointment, then this would raise serious concerns that the special counsel’s investigation was a mere witch hunt.” (Trump has repeatedly derided the Mueller probe as a “witch hunt,” characterizing it as a partisan effort to detract from his accomplishments in office.)

“It is time for Rosenstein … to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel,” Whitaker concluded. “If he doesn’t, then Mueller’s investigation will eventually start to look like a political fishing expedition. This would not only be out of character for a respected figure like Mueller, but also could be damaging to the President of the United States and his family — and by extension, to the country.”

And in July 2017, Whitaker told CNN, “I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn’t fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt.”

Of course, both “Chuck U.” Schumer and San Fran Nan Pelosi immediately called for Whitaker to recuse himself from the Russia Investigation, as Sessions did, and to allow Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to remain in place as Mueller’s boss.

Whitaker did not reply to them.

During a press conference yesterday afternoon, President Trump said,

“I could fire everybody right now, but I don’t want to stop it because politically I don’t like stopping it. “I am not concerned about anything with the Russian investigation, because it is a hoax. There is no collusion.”

However, the President is the boss of the Attorney General and the Attorney General is the boss of the Deputy Attorney General.

…And, we all know what rolls downhill.

The icing on the “Victory” Cake which President Trump served the Democrats last night, came in the form of the revoking of the White House Press Credentials of the Democrats’ favorite “reporter” on CNN: Jim Acosta.

Acosta lost his feeble mind at the President’s Press Conference yesterday afternoon, badgering Trump about the caravan of illegal immigrants heading toward our Southern Border.

President Trump finally had enough, putting the belligerent brat in his place like a child who had tried to butt into the conversation at the Adult Table during Thanksgiving Dinner.

Trump told Acosta that he was done, but Acosta refused to give the White House Intern, a young lady, the microphone. When she did get it, he tried to yank it from her in what was no doubt the most unprofessional scene put on by a “news reporter” in the history of Presidential Press Conferences.

When Acosta returned to the White House to set up for a 7:00 p.m. news segment, he was refused entry and his press credentials were taken from him, suspended “indefinitely”.

Of course, CNN is livid as is the rest of the Liberal Main Stream Media.

Considering the way this lout has behaved since before President Trump took office, he had it coming.

Just like his Democratic Party Masters did.

What started out as “iffy”, turned out to be a great day.

While the Democrats were patting themselves on the back and playing politics, President Donald J. Trump was taking care of business.

The Kavanaugh “Caining”, The Silent Coup, and the New Fascism

k-dossier-dt-600

A couple of days ago I wrote that today was going to be a seminal moment in American History.

Watching the Democrats and their minions in the MSM, DC, and the Legal Profession double down on their efforts to deny a good man and exceptional Jurist the opportunity to take his rightful place on the Supreme Court, while defending the second-in-command of the DOJ who stands accused of sedition, convinced me that I understated the situation.

This current generation of “New Bolsheviks” as I have named them, have degenerated in their behavior since President Donald J. Trump took office to the point where they bear a striking resemblance to the antagonists in the 10-part television series on the USA Network titled “The Purge”, based on the series of movies bearing the same name.

Somehow, someway, America’s Liberal population, who proudly proclaim themselves to be Democrats, have experienced a massive psychotic break with reality.

This break has seen them forswear our System of Laws to declare Judge Brett Kavanaugh “Guilty Until Proven Innocent”. It also permeates the Halls of Justice themselves to where those in the Halls of power have sought to overturn the results of the 2016 Presidential Election by staging a “silent coup” attempt.

The message of the Traditional American Values of God and Country is not easily silenced.

However, if at first you don’t succeed…

Try, try again…like they are doing with their constant campaign against the Fox News Channel, Conservative Talk Radio, and Conservatives who use Social Media.

The Far Left Democratic Party with the support of the Main Stream Media, MoveOn.org, Media Matters, and George Soros are already in the midst of an all-out war in their attempt to drive President Donald J. Trump out of office by any means necessary and achieve what Obama failed to accomplish: turning American into a Socialist Country.

…Including recently using children to push to eliminate the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

In order to ensure that no leader of this new nation would go mad with power, and become a tyrannical despot, our Founders set up a System of Checks and Balances, overseen by Three Branches of Government: the Legislative, the Executive, and the Judicial, with each branch having a distinct and LIMITED role.

The situation, which we as a nation, find ourselves in today, is one which our Founding Fathers sought valiantly to avoid.

Thanks to the Imperious Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, which empowered the Far Left, even after 18 months of the advances made by President Donald J. Trump, America is still suffering under a “Tyranny of the Minority”.

This minority is not based on color, rather, it is one based on political ideology and self-interest.

As Obama’s Presidency showed, this minority, buoyed by money from its “sponsors”, including the Halls of Power in Washington, DC, will shut down anyone who threatens “what they’ve got” by ANY MEANS NECESSARY, including political devices and beliefs, which we, as a country, have gone to war against in the past.

My late father was one of thousands of brave young American men, who landed on the beaches of Normandy , France on June 6, 1944, in the military operation which broke the backs of the Nazis, leading to the end of World War II, now known as D-Day.

World War II was a war against Fascism.

What is Fascism? Per merriam-webster.com, it is a

political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead, it is being fought with School Walkouts, boycotts, Non-Profit Organizations funded by George Soros, Schoolchildren Spokespeople, anonymous sources, unproven baseless accusations, and the Vanguard of the Modern Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media.

It’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this is “the will of the people” and they will site Democratically stacked push polls in order to back their opinion up.

For example, when you ask Liberals if , “Gun Control” is the “will of the people”, why have firearm sales across America gone through the roof every time Far Left Activists threaten to take away Americans’ Second Amendment Rights? And, if there is “no fascism”, what do you call the fact that a little jerk like David Hogg, backed by the forces which I named earlier, can go around threatening the livelihood of Laura Ingraham by bullying her sponsors?

Or, if Judge Kavanaugh is truly the monster which they claim him to be, why have a couple of hundred American women who have known and worked with the Judge in the past, signed formal statements defending him?

And, finally, if President Trump is so horrible, why is he consistently scoring higher in Presidential Approval Polls than his predecessor, Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm)?

In response, you will usually see their eyes glaze over, like a deer in the headlights, or experience a dramatic pause in posting, if you are on the Internet.

Liberals can not legitimately defend their positions, such as the suppression of the Second Amendment Rights of average Americans, the Silent Coup by those members of the DOJ and FBI against President Trump, and the “Caining” of Judge Kavanaugh.

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible, even, when a spineless Republican-led Congress sits idly by while they watch the Far Left indoctrinate our children and grandchildren and attempt to use them as their own version of the Communists’ “useful idiots”.

All of this political unethical behavior by the Far Left Democrats is reminiscent of both the Russian Revolution and Hitler and his Brown Shirts’ “Beer Hall Putsch” which probably should have been expected, given the “New Bolsheviks” track record of Liberal Intolerance and aversion to opposing viewpoints.

Ronald Reagan, during an interview with Mike Wallace on 12/14/75, quipped…

“You know, someone very profoundly once said many years ago that if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.”

The man was a prophet.

Will Thursday Be the Day That Trump and Republicans “Settle All Family Business”?

carpet-600-lia

It appears that Thursday is going to be a memorable day.

We are supposed to hear the testimony of both Professor Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee during what has turned out to be a proverbial three ring circus of political shenanigans designed to stop the approval of a more than qualified Supreme Court Justice.

On the same day, President Donald J. Trump and Deputy Director of the Department of Justice Rod Rosenstein are supposed to have a meeting at the White House which will end in Rod Rosenstein being fired, resigning, or being told to get back to work.

So, what are the consequences of these events?

As regards the hearing at the Senate Judiciary Committee, a very good man may be disqualified from what should be his destiny as a result of scurrilous unproven accusations which are more befitting a schoolyard than a Senatorial Committee during such an important moment in our history.

However, if it goes the way which I believe that it will, the results of the hearing will show the entire nation and the rest of the world as well that the Democrats are bereft of ethics, morality, and any patriotism whatsoever. They will be shown to be exactly whom the majority of average Americans between the coasts believe them to be: ruthless ideological demagogues who are more interested in their political party’s future than they are in the future of the United States of America.

One man is in the eye of the hurricane as regards both of these events…President Donald J. Trump.

The reason being that in the first event if judge Cavanaugh is allowed to become the next Supreme Court Justice, that will give Conservatives a strong majority on the Supreme Court and will affect rulings for decades to come. Not only that, but it will allow the president the assurance that any bold steps which he takes in order to undo the disaster of the Obama presidency, if taken to the Supreme Court by the Democrats, will have a better chance of remaining in place.

In the case of the second event, with new leadership in the Department of Justice, as regards Rosenstein’s position as second-in-command, it will have a direct effect on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia Probe, which has yet to find any evidence of any member of Trump’s campaign staff or the President himself colluding with Russia in any form or fashion.

While I am thinking about all this, is it just me or have you noticed how well Trump handles his job in the middle of chaos? According to all the anonymous sources, the day-to-day activities in the White House are filled with chaos and grumbling. If that is the case, I hope it keeps up because Trump is accomplishing more in the short time that he has been president than his predecessors, Democrat or Republican.

So, will Thursday be like the Baptism Scene in the classic movie “The Godfather”, in which Michael Corleone “settles all family business” while standing in that beautiful cathedral becoming the Godfather of his sister’s baby?

Whatever happens, this will go down as a seminal moment in American history.

Considering how well the important things have gone under Trump’s leadership in the last almost 2 years, I would not bet against him if I were the Democratic hierarchy.

Trump Vows to Get Rid of the “Lingering Stench” in the DOJ/FBI…Why He Needs to Start With “Deputy Director Stinker”

scope-redacted-dt-600

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s actions, as recounted by the New York Times Friday, are the equivalent of an attempted coup — a plot to overthrow the president. – Gregg Jarrett, Fox News

FoxNews.com reports that

During a rally in Springfield, Missouri, Friday night, President Trump took aim at the FBI and the Department of Justice, vowing to “get rid of” what he described as “a lingering stench.” 
 
His remarks come amid reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year suggested secretly recording Trump to expose chaos in the White House and enlisting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

Trump did not specifically mention Rosenstein during the rally, who has adamantly denied the accusations.

“Just look at what is now being exposed in our Department of Justice and the FBI. Look at what’s going on,” Trump said. “And I want to tell you, we have great people in the Department of Justice. We have great people. These are people, I really believe, you take a poll, I gotta be at 95 percent. But you got some real bad ones. You’ve seen what’s happened at the FBI. They’re all gone. They’re all gone. They’re all gone. But there’s a lingering stench and we’re going to get rid of that too.”

One Political Pundit wishes to advise the President that fumigating the Halls of Justice might be a bad idea.

According to FoxNews.com,

In the wake of a New York Times report Friday alleging Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made statements about secretly recording President Trump and invoking the 25th Amendment, law Professor Jonathan Turley said it likely put a strain on an already tough White House relationship.

Rosenstein denied the report.

The vice president and a majority of cabinet members would have the power to collectively direct Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to remove Trump under the 1967 amendment.

Turley, of George Washington University, said on “Your World” that there is already a lack of a working relationship between Rosenstein and Trump, and that the president is also on icy terms with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

He said there is also other reports Rosenstein did say such things while meeting with then-Deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe and FBI attorney Lisa Page, but that he was “joking.”

“Joking about recording the president or having him forcibly removed [from office] does not help their relationship either,” he said. 

Noting the upcoming midterm elections, Turley said that if Trump were to respond to the report by conducting a mass firing of DOJ officials, “the optics would be perfectly horrible for the White House.”

I disagree.

However, lets put first things first, shall we?

Gentle Readers, do you remember when Rosenstein appeared before the House Judiciary Committee last summer?

Dep. Director Rosenstein’s smugness in answering the tough questions thrown at him by Rep. Ron DeSantis and others seemed to be the reaction of a professional bureaucrat, not someone interested in “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” to borrow a phrase from the opening of the “Superman” Television Series which I used to watch with my Daddy at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday mornings.

To this day, I remain both disgusted and concerned about a Deputy Attorney General of the DOJ acting as if it was beneath him to answer questions which Congress and the American People have a right to know concerning the attempted interference in the 2016 Presidential Election by Deep State Operatives within our own government.

The Hierarchy of the DOJ, like our municipal police organizations around the nation, are supposed to “serve and protect” the citizens of our great country.

Not themselves and the Democratic Party.

The silly games which Rosenstein and the Hierarchy of the FBI and the Special Counsel which he appointed have been playing for the entirety of the Trump Presidency became old, stale, and unappreciated by the American Public a long time ago.

A Deputy Attorney General of the Department of Justice repeatedly told members of the House of Representatives that he did not know diddly-squat about the activities of those under him.

And even now, he is allowing those under him to drag their feet in producing the un-redacted documents pertaining to the DOJ/FBI’s Deep State Operation against Candidate Trump which President Trump has ordered to be released.

President Trump is absolutely correct. It is time to begin the process of restoring the System of Checks and Balances to the Three Branches of Government which our Founding Fathers so magnificently created and bequeathed to us.

Certain representatives of the Judicial Branch have decided that they outrank the Legislative and the Executive.

The Founders created all three branches to be servants of the American People.

My friend and fellow writer at SpartaReport.com, Fossten made an excellent point about this situation,

“You know how I know he (Rosenstein) wasn’t “joking”?

He signed the FISA Warrant!”

It’s time to re-introduce Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to a concept personified by a statue, known as “Blind Justice”.

Mr. President, fire Rod Rosenstein.

Now.

Fire his boss and the remainder of the “Silent Coup” after the Republicans sweep the Midterm Elections.

11 House Reps Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Rosenstein – Why It is About Time

ap-rod-rosenstein

FoxNews.com reports that

A group of 11 House Republicans introduced five articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday evening.

The impeachment articles accuse Rosenstein of intentionally withholding documents and information from Congress, failure to comply with congressional subpoenas and abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

It was not immediately clear whether the House of Representatives would consider the resolution before lawmakers begin the August recess Thursday afternoon. The House will reconvene Sept. 4.

The resolution states it will be “referred to the Committee,” meaning the Judiciary Committee, for further review. That language suggests the full House will not immediately consider the articles of impeachment.

The articles were introduced by Reps. Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Jim Jordan of Ohio, the chairman and a prominent member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

In one article of impeachment, Rosenstein is accused of improperly signing off on the FISA surveillance warrant application against ex-Trump aide Carter Page.

…The application heavily relied on the infamous Steele Dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and the DNC and contained unverified, salacious allegations against Trump.

“Under Mr. Rosenstein’s supervision, the Department of Justice and FBI intentionally obfuscated the fact the dossier was originally a political opposition research document before the FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court],” the articles of impeachment state.

They continue: “As Deputy Attorney General, Mr. Rosenstein has failed in his responsibility for the proper authorization of searches under FISA, and his conduct related to the surveillance of American citizens working on the Trump campaign has permanently undermined both public and congressional confidence in significant counterintelligence program processes.”

The documents also charge that Rosenstein has an impermissible conflict of interest.

“His conduct in authorizing the FISA surveillance at issue in the joint congressional investigation makes him a fact witness central to the ongoing investigation of potential FISA abuse,” the articles state. “Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s failure to recuse himself in light of this inherent conflict of interest and failure to recommend the appointment of a second Special Counsel constitute dereliction of duty.”

Rosenstein named Special Counsel Robert Mueller to lead the Trump-Russia probe after Rosenstein’s boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, recused himself from the investigation because of Sessions’ own role in the Trump campaign.

Gentle readers, do you remember last month when Rosenstein appeared before the House Judiciary Committee?

CNSNews.com reported at the time that

In response to two specific questions–did the Department of Justice or the FBI spy on the Trump campaign, and did anyone in the Obama administration direct confidential informants to make contact with the campaign–Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday he was “not permitted to discuss any classified information.”

“Let me ask you this,” Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) asked Rosenstein.

“What did the DOJ or FBI do in terms of collecting information, spying or surveillance on the Trump campaign, be it via (FBI informant) Stefan Halper, or anybody else working on behalf of the agencies?” DeSantis asked Rosenstein.

“As you know, Congressman, I’m not permitted to discuss any classified information in an open setting, but I can assure you, we’re working with oversight committees and we’re producing all relevant evidence to allow them to answer this question,” Rosenstein replied.

DeSantis again: “Let me ask you this then: Did the Obama administration, anybody in the administration, direct anybody — Halper or anybody else — to make contact with anyone associated with the Trump campaign?

“As I said Congressman, I appreciate, obviously, the — I understand your interest, but I’m not permitted to discuss classified information,” Rosenstein said again.

“Well, we want the documents, and I know we’re in a back and forth on that,” DeSantis said. “But the American people need to know, were the counterintelligence powers of the Obama administration unleashed against Trump’s campaign — if that was done, was it done inappropriate?”

The smugness of Deputy Attorney General of the Department of Justice Rod Rosenstein in answering the Committee’s questions did not go unnoticed by the Congressional Representatives in attendance and average Americans, who were watching the proceedings at home.

As a matter of fact, those Representatives who drew up those articles of Impeachment and average Americans have a lot in common. We all remain both disgusted and concerned about a Deputy Attorney General of the DOJ acting as if it was beneath him to answer questions which Congress and the American People have a right to know concerning the attempted interference in the 2016 Presidential Election by Deep State Operatives within our own government.

The Hierarchy of the DOJ, like our municipal police organizations around the nation, are supposed to “serve and protect” the citizens of our great country.

If you buy that, I would like to talk to you about purchasing a lifetime membership in the Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez Center for Rational Thought.

Redacted Carter Page FISA Memo Released – Why It is Obvious Who Were and Still Are After Trump

Obama Spying on Trump

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1021016070134648833

FoxNews.com reports that

Republicans on the House intelligence committee asked President Trump last month to declassify key sections of the surveillance warrant application for ex-campaign aide Carter Page, according to a letter obtained by Fox News.

The heavily-redacted application outlining the justifications for surveiling Page, which was approved and renewed several times by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), was released over the weekend after a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

“Because DOJ (Department of Justice) and FBI continue to obstruct the Committee’s investigation, it is time to put the facts in the public domain,” the letter, dated June 14, states.

The 13 Republicans on the committee, including committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., state in the letter that the declassification should be consistent “with the need to protect intelligence sources and methods,” adding that the declassification will “enable the public to understand the DOJ’s and FBI’s basis for obtaining the FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals.”

The Republicans highlight two sections of the document as key to understanding whether FBI and Department of Justice followed proper procedures when they obtained the authority to surveil Page on October 2016.

A key part of the government’s application to the FISC to surveil Page was an unverified dossier containing salacious allegations about President Trump. The dossier was opposition research paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign.

“… [W]e respectfully request that you declassify and release publicly, and in unredacted form, pages 10-12 and 17-34, along with all associated footnotes, of the third renewal of the FISA application on Mr. Page,” the letter states. “That renewal was filed in June 2017 and signed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.”

The letter states, that on its face, the bureau’s reliance on the dossier appears to violate strict, internal FBI rules.

“The Committee’s investigative findings include DOJ’s and FBI’s use of an unverified dossier of memoranda that was not subjected to proper U.S. government verification and was not handled according to FBI procedures,” the letter says.

It adds: “The FBI’s own Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (known as the DIOG) prohibits the FBI from using unverified material to obtain a warrant under FISA. The unverified allegations in the dossier were nevertheless presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to obtain a FISA warrant and three renewals on Mr. Page. DOJ also presented a news article that was sourced from the author of the dossier.”

That is an apparent reference to a September 2016 Yahoo News article about intelligence officials probing Page as a possible Russian operative.

Based on the weekend document release, the Yahoo News article was presented to the surveillance court as an independent intelligence stream justifying the surveillance of Page.

But London court records show that contrary to the FBI’s assessments that were presented to the FISC, ex-spy Christopher Steele briefed Yahoo News and other reporters in the fall of 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS — the opposition research firm behind the dossier.

The lawmakers also advised the President they have requested the senior judge who oversees the FISA surveillance court “to conduct an investigation into DOJ’s conduct in obtaining the FISA warrant and renewals.”

The Justice Department and the White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Fox News about the letter or whether the president is considering or has rejected the request. The FBI declined to comment.

Earlier this year, the House intelligence committee also called on Trump to declassify their FISA memo summarizing the warrant application for Page and subsequent renewals, which he did.

Democrats, who later released their own memo, called the declassification a danger to national security at the time, with the FBI issuing a rare public statement that the bureau had grave concerns about material omissions, they believed, impacted the memo’s accuracy.

Rosenstein also voiced reservations on the basis of endangering sources and methods.

Of course he did.

Rosenstein needs to go. Now.

Gentle readers, if the long and winding trail which includes the Carter Page FISA Memo is followed back long enough and strongly enough, I firmly believe that it will lead back to Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Former President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

The whole Deep State Operation put into motion by government agents and bureaucrats loyal to Obama and Clinton resembles a spider’s web in its intricacy, with, like a spider’s, a single signaling line leading back to the white House and President Barack Hussein Obama, who was attempting to clear a pathway to the Presidency for the Black Widow herself, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton.

I mean, it’s not like the old girl doesn’t have a history of being involved in Machiavellian schemes…

In the spring of 1974, Hillary 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.

So, if you don’t think that her ethics would preclude her from being involved in this end run around the Constitution, think again.

And, you had better believe that O knew what was going on, as well. He knew that if Trump got in office, his “legacy” would be destroyed.

Hillary’s Fingerprints are all over this mess.

Just ask Cody Shearer.

Just who is he? I’m Glad you asked.

According to Judicial Watch

…Shearer in fact has long been linked to the sleaziest aspects of the Clinton operation, mainly through his close relationship with Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal. Longtime observers of the Clinton ecosystem know that when Cody appears, Sid Blumenthal is not far behind. A ceaseless schemer, Blumenthal was so offensive to the Obama White House that he was banned from an official role at Mrs. Clinton’s State Department. But that barely slowed him down. As documented by Judicial Watch and others, Blumenthal was a constant presence by Mrs. Clinton’s side during her State Department years.

Blumenthal and Shearer are connected to a global network of intelligence and military freelancers. They played a dangerous game meddling in Libyan affairs after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi. They supplied intelligence to Secretary of State Clinton in the weeks leading up to the Benghazi debacle and pitched deals to make money off the Libyan turmoil. ProPublica reports at length on the Blumenthal and Shearer’s Libyan efforts here. According to Judicial Watch’s reporting, during Mrs. Clinton’s State Department tenure, Blumenthal also promoted African business deals and meddled in European Union elections.

As for Shearer, he has a long history of dirty tricks. He’s been linked to Whitewater-era efforts to dirty up Bill Clinton critics; to shakedown politics involving the Cheyenne-Arapaho Indian tribe; and to fronting for Bosnian Serb butcher Radovan Karadzic. Read more about it here and here.

The Guardian reports that the new Shearer document makes some of the same allegations about Mr. Trump as the original Christopher Steele dossier, including “lewd acts at a five-star hotel” in Moscow. It also notes that Steele passed on the Shearer report to the FBI in October 2016, but would not vouch for its accuracy. That’s worth pausing over.

According to the Guardian, Steele provided “a copy [of the Shearer report] because it corresponded with what he had separately heard from his own independent sources.” If the reporting here is accurate, that’s quite a coincidence—that Cody Shearer and Christopher Steele were hearing the same things from different sources at pretty much the same time. A closer look at timelines and sources might be revealing. If Sid and Cody are behind the original Russian dossier sources, that would be big news indeed.

I would not be a bit surprised if that were the case.

So, we’ve got a Machiavellian Scheme to sabotage the campaign and then, the Presidency of Donald Trump, in which the Hierarchy of the FBI bases it’s “proof” on information obtained at a hefty cost from individuals as crooked as a dog’s hind legs.

No wonder Wray and his top agents completely redacted the memo they released over the weekend.

How desperate was the FBI to be using such specious evidence as mentioned in the article above?

Their desperation at the time that they decided to use the Steele Dossier has grown and grown over the succeeding months like a Dung Beetle pushing its prize down a hill like in one of those Walt Disney Nature Films we used to watch in school.

To the point where it seems as if any day now, the DOJ and FBI Hierarchy that were involved in this ugly Deep State Operation will be announcing that they are going to progress from staging a “silent” coup to a full-blown on, deposing the 45th President of the United States of America.

Their problem, however, is that more and more of their own treasonous actions are  being revealed every day.

Donald J. Trump remains the President of the United States of America and his popularity continues to climb in the polls.

…In spite of everything they continue to try to do to him.

I believe that President Trump is waiting for just the right moment to shut this whole dog and pony show down and show Sessions, Rosenstein, Mueller, and the rest of them the door.

As my late fellow Memphian, the King of Rock ‘n Roll, Elvis Presley, once said,

Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.

After Russian Indictment, McCain and Democrats Try to Give Orders to Trump About Putin Meeting

untitled (237)

https://twitter.com/dbongino/status/1017857786569482240

FoxNews.com reports that

Sen. John McCain said Friday that the U.S.-Russia summit in Helsinki “should not move forward” unless President Trump is willing to hold Russia accountable for political meddling. This, after 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted for allegedly hacking emails from the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party in the 2016 election. 

The Republican senator from Arizona released a statement praising the charges, which arose out of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the election.  

The 12 members belonging to the Russian Intelligence agency are accused of hacking into emails from the Hillary campaign and her party, and of leaking damaging discussions between top party members.

“Today’s indictment is a result of the hard work of America’s law enforcement and intelligence officials who dedicate their lives to bringing to justice those who wish to do us harm,” McCain, who has been sidelined while battling cancer, said in a statement.

“These revelations add to a body of evidence confirming an extensive plot by Vladimir Putin’s government to attack the 2016 election, sow chaos and dissension among the American electorate, and undermine faith in our democracy.”

McCain has been a vocal critic of Trump, recently calling his visit to the NATO summit in Brussels “disappointing.”

While not expressing outright support for the meeting with Russia, which is to take place on Monday, McCain said Thursday that that summit represented an opportunity for Trump “to demonstrate his willingness to defend America” against its adversaries.

“Putin is not America’s friend. … Putin is America’s enemy,” McCain said.

He doubled down on that sentiment on Friday, urging Trump to hold the Russian president “accountable.”

“President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world,” the senator said. “If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward.”

Trump and Putin will meet in their first official standalone meeting on Monday at the Presidential Palace in Finland. The pair have met twice before, on the sidelines of international meetings.

On Friday, several Democratic leaders also weighed in, in some instances urging the president to consider canceling his summit with Putin.

Sen. Mark Warner, top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, offered Trump an ultimatum for the highly anticipated summit: make Russian interference a priority, or cancel the meeting. 

I know that this has been asked numerous times before, but just whose side is Senator John “Maverick” McCain on, anyway?

Anybody with an IQ above double digits can recognize a politically-inspired indictment such as the toothless one that Mueller and Rosenstein announced yesterday coming from a mile away.

Mueller and his team’s sole purpose for conducting their investigation was supposed to be to prove that there was some sort of Russian Collusion with Republican Candidate Donald J. Trump which influenced the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election.

From the get-go, they have been investigating the Trump Campaign trying to find something…ANYTHING…that would prove that Trump snd his Campaign Staffers “colluded” with those “dirty rotten commies”.

Guess what?

Mueller and his “13 angry Democrats” haven’t found Jack, Jack.

So, gentle readers, if you were a Special Counsel who had failed so miserably in your objective and you found some evidence that the Russians, as they have probably been doing in the last several elections, were cyber-snooping on the Clinton Campaign, wouldn’t you wait for the right moment that, in your mind, would be the optimal opportunity  to somehow hurt the person that you couldn’t find squat on?

Just like Admiral James T. Kirk “vexed” Khan in the Star Trek Movie “The Wrath of Khan”, so does President Donald Trump vex Special Counsel Mueller and all of the GOP Elite RINOs like Sen. McCain.

There is a problem with Mueller’s indictment, though: It doesn’t mean a thing.

He may be able to indict those 12 Russians but how is he going to serve them?

How is he going to “bring them to justice”?

Yesterday’s announcement by Mueller and Rosenstein was, as ol’ Willie Shakespeare would say, a bunch of “sound and fury signifying nothing”.

It was announced yesterday to be a distraction and to hurt Trump’s efforts on his Foreign Policy Trip, especially his meeting with Putin.

But, that’s not going to happen.

President Trump does not answer to the Democrats or the RINOs like “Maverick”.

He answers to the average Americans who elected him President.

And, for you members of the Beltway Elite who may not have noticed, we think that he is doing just fine.

Until He Comes,
