Matt - deplore me if you must

First?

Matt - deplore me if you must

I think Comey is between a rock and very hard place. I expect that the rank & file are going to be in full revolt.

How Comey can dismiss 500,000 e mails he just got and after he raised the red flag almost immediately is inexplicable.

Al Franken called for an investigation of the FBI, the douche. We are descending into criminality and statism faster than any other country in the history of the planet.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

Dang. I missed first buy thismuch.

Clinton would be under constant domestic stress.

Previous Clinton admin had a history of creating international incidents to distract from domestic troubles.

But then ... many thoughtful people believe Trump is the Boogie Man which is very scary for them.

So yeah, we survived Wag the Dog but the Boogie Man is a whole different threat level.

Tough choice.

I think Comey is between a rock and very hard place.

That's his job. A job he was not conscripted to, but accepted of his own free will.

If he is unwilling or unable to do the right thing, he should resign. Or take his own gun and blow his brains out, if the stress is just too much for him to deal with. I really don't care which.

Trump won the mock vote in my first grader's class in deep blue Austin. I am amazed. He voted Trump. :)

Jack is Back!

And to further add, I think thoughtful professors like Rahe and educated pundits like TM overthink the simple notions of individual liberty and freedom from the shackles of over-regulated society.

It is going to take more than hand rubbing to get over what the guy with creased pants has wrought and if it requires a revolution we will happily invite philosphers like Rahe to chronicle for the pundits to post.

Captain Hate

The unfunny Franken calling for Stalin type show trials? Is he testing a new standup routine?

Comey and his alt-right breitbart FBI scumbags just cleared Clinton in the new fake email scandal.

Vladmir Putin furious over FBI's reluctance to find "something. Anything".

Putin told REUTURS "In Russia we would find the evidence

Here's how the country's changed:

New York Times: (February 6th, 1993)

WASHINGTON, Feb. 5— Judge Kimba M. Wood withdrew today from consideration for Attorney General after the White House learned she had employed an illegal immigrant as a baby sitter before it became illegal to do so.

That stunning setback left President Clinton scrambling for the third time to fill the post.

There was no evidence that Judge Wood, who sits on the Federal District Court in New York, did anything illegal, but White House officials said they told her to withdraw because they feared the kind of public outcry that struck down the Administration's first choice for Attorney General, Zoe Baird, who had employed two illegal aliens for household work.

WITHOUT A FUNCTIONING PRESS,

The MSM news on Austyn Crites dustup ascribes it to "a dissident Republican"

NOW Jim Hoft tells us Crites has been illegally voting for his dead grandmother, his out of state brother and himself in Nevada several times.

AND it appears his sister may very well be a hardworking and respected investigative reporter for the Washington Post

AND he may have been involved in other "bird dogging" activities under Creamer and is not a "Republican" at all but a Hillary worker

AND Yahoo has a list of the numerous campaign contributions he has made to Hillary..

In case you didn't realize the price we are paying for constantly biased and lousy reporting.

You will hear NOTHING about any of this until after the election if then.

I'm afraid to say I told you so, but I did.

Comey did not get that job without assuring Zero that he was on the team.

derwill, yet another adorable, irredeemable deplorable

Whatever leverage the NYPD and the rebel FBI agents had to force Comey to send that letter to Congress about re-opening the investigation still exists. The DOJ is playing chicken with them now, banking that they won't dare release them at this late date. And especially if it involves a pedophile ring--the NYPD won't release until the case is solid and it probably isn't yet. The DOJ aren't sure, though--hence that strange tweet basically ordering the MSM not to report on any last minute email dumps by saying they "probably" won't be real.

One thing just occurred to me . . . the rebel forces within the FBI now have their backs to the wall. If Hillary wins, it's going to be the night of long knives against them. For their own survival they might have to dump the emails now and damn the short term consequences.

Very true, maryrose!!

jimmyk

The fact is that all the FBI stuff and Wikileaks has been putting Hillary's criminality out there for the past week, it's completely taken the starch out of Hillary's campaign, and Comey has zero credibility with anyone. Hard to believe anyone who was planning to vote for Trump because of all this would suddenly say, "Oh, Comey isn't going to prosecute, I guess I'll vote for her after all." Well, a few idiots might, but I still think Hillary's toast.

Someone here at this group needs to be objective and point that out. You've wasted everything on this Comey letter bullshit and the immense damage it's done to two institutions.

Any movement into emailgate from here on in will draw collective groans and accusations of witch hunts and wasting tax payers money.

There was also this major caveat in Comey's letter:

[…] “with respect to former Secretary of State, Clinton’s use of a personal email server”…

So the investigation into the Clinton Foundation is still going on--and that's where the real nasty dirt is. The possible pedophile ring and child sex trafficking. The pay to play. They selling of secrets to foreign governments. The tax evasions . . . and on and on . . .

--This doesn't make Obamacare premium hikes go away, does it?--

A reporter was interviewing some of the 20,000 people who showed up for a rally in MN this morning and he asked them what their number 1 concern was this election. Every single one of them said the cost of their health insurance. Every one.

Anyway, wasn't the MSM assuring their slavish devotees all last week that this whole email thing was not costing her any votes at all? That the cake was already baked. So if she didn't lose votes over it in the first place, then there's no votes for her to to get back now, because they were never gone.

dublindave

You know....this is hard for me to say.....in 3 years from now a lot of you will look back on this time and maybe you'll review some of the old posts.....if you do I bet you'll come to a weird yet honest conclusion that, Dublindave wasn't an asshole Irish drunken troll, but a patriotic American who was trying to save you from yourselves and your worst instincts.

We may even wanna meet for a beer whereupon which you'll break down and cry, hug me and say "Thank you, Dublindave for all you did for America. You, in your own little way helped to save this country from people like me. What was I thinking. I'm a dickhead"


Some of you women will want to thank me with sex......heck,some of you men might too...and.....I mean if that's what you need to thank Dublindave then....never look a gift horse in the mouth etc.(you're paying for the motel room btw and I like pastries)


There's no need for me to troll here anymore. My Mission has been accomplished(by James comey).


Good night all. See you in 2020 when Rubio crushes Hillary Clinton. She hasn't got a fucking chance against him.

If Hillary was cruising to a win, the pressure on Comey to give her another pass would be unnecessary.

Beasts of England

Welp, I see that her maid went into her personal SCIF and grabbed the [redacted] PDB off of her secure facsimile. That's as sensitive a national security document as can be. SCIFs only work when the cypher locks are enabled. I'm glad that I'm rage-spent, otherwise, I'd be looking for something to break.

Since Comey knew Hilligula had a private server and erased most of it, shared classified information (including SAP) carelessly, and all the other stuff he decided didn't show "intent", why would 10s of thousands more new emails change that.. just more of the same. Caught with hand in cookie jar either way. Corruptly let her off for the same thing, not like DOJ would do anything with it (but exposing his #2 and a DOJ friend of Podesta in the process). Disappointing, but not a surprise.

IMO, it makes no difference what Comey does at this point. Since Obama has decreed that non US citizens can vote we may have more non citizens in the US voting than citizens, IMO.

derwill, yet another adorable, irredeemable deplorable

--If Hillary was cruising to a win, the pressure on Comey to give her another pass would be unnecessary.--

The Dems are leading the Reps in EVs in FL by 25,000 votes at the moment. To put that in perspective at this point in time in 2012, the Dems led by 240,000 votes. And in the end Obama won the state by less than 1% (so basically fraud.)

Furthermore a CBS poll released today said that of those who intend to vote on election day in Florida, Trump leads Hillary by 13 points.

The Des Moines Register Iowa state poll (and they are traditionally very accurate) has Trump leading by 7 points. In 2012 Obama won Iowa by 5.8. So almost a 13 point swing. Is there something special about Iowa that would make it an anomaly compared to other midwestern states like Ohio (where Trump has been leading for weeks now nearly all the polls) or MI or MN?

Jane

First of all Comey didn't clear Hillary. What he said is that so far he hasn't found the "intent" which was not necessary to find under the law, so it's sort of another joke.

Clearly he was under pressure.

As to TM's post, it is very hard for me to think losing the rule of law in this country is something we can survive. I'm not sure Trump will screw up foreign policy, altho that is certainly a possibility (let the insults begin) but we know that Hillary will destroy this nation.

A Facebook User

And then there is this:

http://www.themorgandoctrine.com/2015/04/mossad-to-release-hillary-clinton-email.html


TEL AVIV, ISRAEL—Sometime Before 2016—Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced today that Israeli's Mossad has been authorized to release the entirety of both Bill and Hillary Clinton's personal Email files. The indexed and searchable database is now available at http://www.MossadPublic.com.

"We released these documents," explains Prime Minister Netanyahu, "to protect the integrity of and our friendship with Israel's most important ally. We are aware of at least five other nations' security services that have gained access to these files from the Clinton's home-based server, and we wanted to validate that our version of these data is true, accurate, and unedited. This avoids the real possibility that other governments may be prepared to alter these files for their own geopolitical purposes."

Unnamed sources in both the Russian and Chinese intelligence communities expressed shock and dismay that Israel beat them to the punch. Exclaimed one North Korean source, "Damn! We really truly had these files first." The Clinton 2016 presidential campaign staff were not available for comment, although police received a complaint of excessive profanity penetrating neighboring offices and onto the street through open windows.

So far, no national leaders have disputed the accuracy of the Israeli-supplied files. Which means Israel's goal for protecting the data assets of their most important international ally has been achieved.

Mazel tov.

Beasts of England

Franken claims that Trump's new closing ad is anti-Semitic because it isolates Soros, Yellen, and Blankfein, as helping to undermine our country and economy. I didn't recognize Blankfein in the ad or know he was Jewish, nor did I know that of Yellen. What a maroon.

Hillary is Not Cleared of any wrong doing!!!!!!

Comey took a look at the polls..sniffed the wind..decided Hillary would win the election..and made the expedient move.

If this does Not make the voting public aware of how corrupt the DC establishment is - don't know what will.

I think the feather passer the other day made a reasonable stab at the truth..in that we as a country and the world are totally screwed economically and financially.

Might go down a little easier under the Hill but if Trump wins..and I so hope he does..the progressive 'walking dead' will be ravenous in their destruction of our country..

--Comey took a look at the polls..sniffed the wind..decided Hillary would win the election..and made the expedient move.--

Actually I think the opposite, glasater. Trump has said he will investigate the investigation, so if Trump wins Comey's head will be on the block. He's desperately trying to mitigate some of the damage created by the earlier letter, because it's obvious now that she's sinking. Even Nate Silver tweeted today that Hillary is only one state away from losing the Electoral College. Which explains why they are in a complete panic over MI.

jimmyk

Why is it that this "pressure" always results in the left getting its way? Apparently John Roberts was "under pressure" too (whether external or internal), not to scuttle Obamacare. The left plays for keeps.

Also, what possible pressure would cause anyone with dignity and character to let Hillary off the hook? Did someone threaten his family? Tell the police. He wants to keep his job? How important can a job be (not that he was even going to lose it)? He was going to anger 40% of the voters? He was going to do that anyway. Again, I don't see any scenario where someone principled could do this because of "pressure." The only conclusion? He has no principles, dignity, or character.

Comey's a long-time Hildo and Bildo crony. As is Lo Lo Lynch. He was forced to write the first letter or be upstaged. Now he's being used as a PR foil to get the investigations out of the news cycle because the "polls are tightening" (not anything as much as Dem sphincters.) -----> One problem: the real investigation beyond Comey's control, and Lo Lo Lynch's as well, is about the Clinton Foundation.... the Fat Lady is at the bottom of the stage stairs getting her tonsils sprayed as we speak.

Tom Bowler

Comey's new statement implies that none of the emails on Weiner's laptop are in any way classified. If any were, their presence on that device would be another violation. What are the chances? Comey is definitely giving Hillary a pass, but as maryrose and jimmyk said, it seems unlikely that it will gain her any voters at this point.

That said, I'm uneasy about Trump's chances Tuesday, and if he loses I'll be quite pessimistic about our chances of turning Hillary out by way of the vote in 2020. If Hillary wins it might be the sign that the illegal immigration tipping point has been reached. In any case, I think it will be harder to vote her out after four more years of open borders policy and attacks on voter ID laws.
