MOrning, all!

James D.

EVERYONE knew the fix was in - meetings and memos not needed.

Well, then EVERYONE needs to be fired. And prosecuted.

Another Bob

Willowed.

You're probably right Henry and it'll be infuriating. The people involved in this are the ones deserving the Plouffe prescription - "destroyed and never rise again".

Seriously, these people were working to overthrow the government - not the Trump administration, but the system itself. Doesn't that rate bullets as punishment?

Another Bob

James, my reference to Henry was his view that nobody gets charged with anything more than obstruction of justice (for things like missing texts and refusal to turn over materials). Nobody gets charged with anything related to the actual crimes.

Morning, TM, and thanks for the Goodwin link!

Here's that Mark Meadow's twitter thread that was so good I'm linking it again. Man, does he put the puzzle pieces together well.

Another Bob

And why the hell is Goodwin just now getting to the party?

Note: the fix is still in. Not one pension under threat so far. McCarthy at NR is the wind vane to measure by -- he gives "Conservative" permission to let it all slide. "Just words." Oh I forgot, Elmer is perp walking the universe in his dreams... Nonsense. Elmer is fully occupied with drug gangs and encryption back doors to all your private data -- then he knows which of your assets to snag through forfeiture. Efemall.

The cynic in me believes that the only way the FBI/DOJ criminals/traitors will meet justice is if Mitch Rapp comes out of retirement.

Too late for mimosas on the Ledge??

Lucianne's must-reads of the day

henry

On thought for all you Fudd backers: the IG knew that texts were missing back in October (roughly). Elmer decided to investigate the gap this week. Asleep at his post at a minimum. Burying the crime under the "can't talk about active investigations" pillow until Trump is gone seems more likely.

Democratic Trump
"Senate Democrats are facing trouble in 2018 because so many of them happened to get elected during the 2012 Democratic wave when lots of Obama’s Coalition of the Fringes could be cajoled to show up for the glamour of the presidential election. In contrast, 2018 will be an off-year election, like 2010 and 2014, when solid-citizen Republicans normally make up a larger share of those who bother to vote."

Makes sense to me.

"Hundreds of agents will resign in protest if......."

The CBC has been quiet lately, especially during the DACA debacle. A pivotal number of AA voters may give Dems a clear object lesson re consequences of ignoring them, while actively courting Hispanics, by boycotting the Nov. election. CBC seats are safe, unlike many Dems.

That's Strzok. I've seen another pic of him wearing jeans/t-shirt but that same dour expression.

Damn straight, Henry. Every member of Congress and every member of the DOJ knows Clapper lied under Oath and he admitted he lied under Oath. So why not bust that malignant POS and prosecute the hell out of him?

Because that would make an example of him and might prevent future lying to Congress, daddy.

WaPo cites Minnesota Public Broadcasting refuting Garrison Keiller's claim that he was fired for putting his hand on a woman's back to console her ...
"the woman’s attorney presented us with a 12-page letter detailing many of the alleged incidents, including excerpts of emails and written messages, requests for sexual contact and explicit descriptions of sexual communications and touching." .... Hope Lutherans sue him for defamation.

James D.

nobody gets charged with anything more than obstruction of justice (for things like missing texts and refusal to turn over materials). Nobody gets charged with anything related to the actual crimes.

I'll go further. I don't believe anyone involved will get charged with anything, period.

They'll keep their jobs, retire on their own terms, and collect lifetime pensions at our expense.

I was just about to post the Goodwin article.
Doesn't this remind you of JournoList?

50 thousand between 2 people in 6 months seems a stretch.
Presumably, more than 2 people were sending or receiving the emails. It would look really really suspicious if theirs were the only ones lost.

EVERYONE knew the fix was in - meetings and memos not needed.
Just like the IRS scandal--and all the nefariousness that doesn't see the light of day. The kingpins escape prosecution when no one squeals because nothing's in writing.

Momto2

Does anyone else think it's odd that there are so few photos of Strzok and his mistress? Can you just imagine the hoard of reporters that would be staked outside their homes/offices if they were Republicans or had been found to be plotting all these nefarious things against Hillary?

He does seem to have a few more wrinkles lately...maybe losing sleep and worrying a tiny bit?

I don’t think he’s losing much sleep - someone just bought him a $2K/hr lawyer.

I meant texts in that comment, but the point stands. I was also wondering where the 50 thousand came from. I thought that was the number that was turned over and that in the missing timeframe the number is indeterminate. If it only theirs, yeah that isn't a good look.

Schumer splains to Rachel Maddow:

Schumer said Democrats “advanced the cause.”

He continued that Democrats don’t control the levers of power and have to be strategic in how they push for DACA protection.

He added that while President Trump shut the government down, “all of us in the Democratic caucus, not just the moderates, but the liberals as well, came to the view that if we carried it on much longer, two things would happen: A. No one would budge. The public would lose support of the shutdown. The public does not like shutdowns. And we’d actually lose support for DREAMers, too. Because people love the DREAMers, but don’t want the government shut down for it. So, we cut the best deal that we could.”

Is there any doubt that Mueller was a terrible FBI director and surely did a lot to turn it into a traitorous nest of scum pre Queasy? And lol at anyone who thought he was really on "our side".

Miss Marple the Deplorable

anonamom,

I will refrain from posting from iffy sources if someone can give me a list of sources I can count on. Other than the Daily Caller and the Washington Examiner, I am at a loss.

The thing is, some of these places HAVE discovered stuff and have been ignored unless the information is picked up by a more reputable place.

The article detailing why this went back to Obama due to him being involved in the emails is one example. This was not a surprise to me because I personally believe that this was actually a plot by OBAMA and Hillary just got wrapped up in it. He didn't give a damn where she had her emails or if foreign sources were involved (see Awan brothers and the Hezbollah drug ring).

This was an attempt to frame Trump for when he LOST the election, so that he could be "not only defeated but destroyed, so that his kind shall not rise again" as outlined ON TWITTER by David Plouffe.

Obama despised Trump and knew that with Hillary in charge, they could manufacture evidence to their heart's content and that the press wouldn't question one damn thing they did.

Given that these agents apparently had messages expressing hatred for Trump's family and a desire to destroy his businesses, I believe that this is what was going on. They had to change plans when Trump won and hope they could somehow either throw the electoral college or get him impeached.

It hasn't worked, and now that we are a year in and not only has Trump not failed, he has done spectacularly well. The longer this goes on with more stuff dripping out, the less virtuous Obama and Clinton will look.

When you have sitting representatives posting threads on Twitter to get the message out over the heads of the media, there is something big there.

I therefore am going to continue to post stuff that may or may not have a kernel of truth in it. What I WILL do is post in bold letters at the top IFFY SOURCE and people who are looking for stuff that is 100% accurate and guaranteed can scroll on by.

My take for what little it's worth: The main story isn't about what they allegedly did to try to stop Trump. It's *why.* It's about what they feared Trump & Co. would expose. I think that will turn out to be the bigger can of worms.

This is by The Heritage Foundation's publication.

Here is my problem: anyone who saw McMaster's passionate defense of Trump yesterday at the press briefing can have no doubt that he is 100% on board with Trump.

So the question is the following: 1. ARE all of these oldovers still there, or did Heritage get bad information. 2. If they are holdovers, are they peole whose first loyalty is to Obama or to national security? 3. I note in this article the effort to once again go after McMaster. Why?

This is a perfect example of how a publication which seems reputable can go off the mark (or maybe not). This is why it is hard to "filter" what I post, and why I will go ahead and post something even if I am not sure.

Court Rules That IRS Violated Constitution
True the Vote Now Seeks Legislative Action to End IRS Weaponization

HOUSTON, TX - January 24, 2018 - True the Vote’s lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service has resulted in a consent decree outlining egregious conduct by the agency. In the decree, United States District Judge Reggie Walton declared “discrimination on the basis of political viewpoint in administering the United States tax code violates fundamental First Amendment Rights.”

“Our consent decree is a stringent admonishment of the IRS’s admitted discrimination,” said True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht, “but much more is needed to ensure that IRS employees engaging in unconstitutional conduct will face real, actionable penalties. We are working together with Senator John Cornyn, who will introduce legislation to ensure the rights of Americans are protected from rogue government employees whose discrimination and abuse has now been well documented in our court case.

I applaud the tireless efforts of our lawyers, in particular, James Bopp, who led the charge in this groundbreaking effort.”

Deb, our "premier investigative agencies" have a pretty horrendous track record over, oh, the last several decades or so.

They missed "lone wolves" like the Orlando shooter and the Boston bombers. They missed major plots like 9/11. They missed finding myriad high-level, long-term moles. They missed the whole freaking collapse of the Soviet Union.

Conservatives have long accused the Democrats of engaging in voter registration fraud and voting fraud by way of absentee ballots. Assuming (key word is assume) the Democrats do indeed engage in widespread fraud using absentee ballots, the senior FBI/DOJ officials who were all part of this 'secret society" likely just believed there was no way Hillary could lose because they knew how widespread and successful their absentee ballot fraud was.

This is a pretty good essay about the media and how they will NOT walk back their coverage, but will double down on some other esplanation.

However, he does NOT go into something I believe to be lurking in the shadows, and that is that I believe reporters are being paid for a certain viewpoint.

I want to see Fusion GPS records. I want to know if they were not only paying reporters for information, but if they were feeding them information and paying them to write stories with their preferred viewpoint. (The Russia hoax being the most likely.)

If you think about it, until Trump looked to be the nominee he got a LOT of coverage. Before he declared as a candidate, he was the darling of every interview show. What made the change in the press's attitude?

Perhaps it's because they had faith in their ability to destroy Trump before the Election, so even if any of them had had legitimate concerns that Trump might pull it out in an honest Election, they knew it was not going to be an honest Election.

I think pretty much all members of the leftwing media are hardcore true believers in the progressive movement. Progressivism is just another Marxist-based ideology that their adherents do whatever it takes to avoid admitting.

The progressive movement in America has learned the fastest and easiest way to become wealthy is thru political corruption. The Clintons are the role model for that. With the millions and perhaps even billions of dollars getting exchanged to ensure the success of the political corruptness, its not a stretch to assume the media members who assist the corrupt politicians are getting their slice of the payola.
