Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Why trust the untrustworthy?

None but a fool would believe a proven liar, nor should trust ever be granted those who have proved themselves unworthy of it.

Suddenly, rather than focus its attention on the alleged suicide of one of the most notorious and politically connected sex traffickers in history, the media instead targeted those malicious “conspiracy theorists” who refused to accept as fact the questionable circumstances around Epstein’s death. The media’s collective attitude is best summed up with this tweet posted by Politico early Sunday morning: “Jeffrey Epstein’s death has brought conspiracy theories into the political mainstream, with some influential people unable to take the details at face value.”

In the accompanying article, without irony or a shred of self-reflection, Politico editor-in-chief John Harris lamented that “the signature of American politics in the Trump era is a conviction—shared initially by many people who backed Trump but now embraced with similar fervor by many who loathe him—that things are not what they seem, that the official version of events is sustained by lies, that the institutions of American life are not on the level.”

But Harris doesn’t explore the reasons why this is the dim lens through which millions of his fellow countrymen now view our country’s most powerful institutions. Harris doesn’t wonder aloud why people distrust the government, our political leadership and our national news media so much that they actually believe the Clintons or some other shadowy figures might be responsible for Epstein’s death.

Harris doesn’t raise the possibility that perhaps a litany of ongoing embarrassments for the news media coupled with the fact that the previous administration weaponized the country’s law enforcement and intelligence apparatus to sabotage a rival political campaign and then tried to cover it up are contributing to a general climate of hostility, rage, and doubt.

Harris has good reason to eschew any such quest for insight: Because it would lead him straight to a mirror. Harris’ own website and his media colleagues in general have lost all credibility with the American public. From assuring us the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to influence the outcome of the 2016 election to reporting every unproven allegation of rape against Brett Kavanaugh, Politico and its brethren have fueled this crisis of confidence. (Harris authored an article in September 2018 with the headline, “Why God is Laughing at Brett Kavanaugh.”)

Pro-life high schoolers wearing Make America Great Again hats were “mocking” and “laughing at” a Native American elder, the media told us. Hillary Clinton will win the presidency. The stock market will tank after Trump is elected. Donald Trump won’t serve a full term. White supremacy is on the rise and poses a greater threat to national security that Islamic extremism because Trump and Republicans are using special “code words” to fan the flames of racism. There is no national emergency at the southern border. The Trump Administration is the first to lock migrant children “in cages.”

That is only a partial list of falsehoods, flat-out lies and legitimate conspiracies that the untrustworthy folks who populate our once respected institutions have told us in the past three years.

Meanwhile, the media continue to ignore or to justify what many Republicans see as the biggest political scandal in our history, which is the way in which the Obama Administration sought to destroy the candidacy and then the presidency of Donald Trump by using the most powerful government methods—including secret surveillance tools—to do it.

This is nothing more than government and Enemedia reaping what they’ve so diligently sown—a planting that took place over many, many years. Harris’s lamentation about “the signature of American politics in the Trump era” is especially rich; the institutions of American life—having been co-opted, undermined, and perverted by a Left that is hostile to them—are NOT “on the level,” and “the Trump era” was by no means the beginning of our awareness of it, either. As always, Trump has merely spoken things Real Americans have been saying amongst themselves for years—giving full-throated voice to people and ideas that our would-be masters would much prefer remain voiceless.

These institutions not only forfeited our faith in them, they actively spurned it. Having expressed it a thousand times, in a thousand ways, their arrogant contempt for the Normals has now come back to haunt them. Mollie Hemingway says Enemedia’s abominable performance last week represents a turning point:

Host Howard Kurtz started the discussion by noting:

Mollie, there is no longer any pretense of a debate. Journalists, commentators say….President Trump is a racist, President Trump is a white supremacist. {And} maybe leap into charging that he is condoning, inciting, that he’s directly responsible for mass violence.

Hemingway agreed: “It was really horrible, what we saw this week. We had two horrible mass shootings, and we had people in the media kind of absolve both of the shooters of their crimes in order to blame President Trump and his voters for mass murder.”

“This is completely beyond journalistic responsibility,” she added, “and a real turning point for the worst in American discourse.”

Making note to point out how many primetime FNC hosts support Trump, Kurtz then asked if the media are at “a point where the President can do nothing right, and many journalists [have] basically become part of the Resistance?”

Hemingway pointed to the significant differences between the shooters, noting that one of them “had these anti-immigrant viewpoints, and there was a shooter who was very supportive of Antifa and Elizabeth Warren and what not it’s not like he was saying out of thin air.”

Kurtz then turned to a front-page report in the New York Times stating: “Trump uses day of healing to deepen the nation’s division” and “A day intended to show compassion devolved into anger-fueled broadsides at Democrats and the media.”

“As if all the partisanship in this matter comes only from Donald Trump,” he continued.

Hemingway responded by calling the situation “an amazing game that’s being played” and stated:

So you have days of blaming Donald Trump for mass murder and his supporters for mass murder and then, when he responds to any of these things, well then, he’s acting unpresidential.

There is now simply no way any reasonable, observant person can credibly dispute their bias and dishonesty. None. They long ago made their choice; hearing them whine now about having to live with the consequences, å la Harris’s self-serving bleat above, should be sweet music to every Real American’s ears.

Call to arms

As the Left’s desperation grows, their unhinged refusal to abide by the results of any election they don’t win becomes more frenzied; their resolve to overthrow the duly-elected President by any means at all becomes more mulish; and their calls to revolution, disorder, and violence become less subtle, more open, and more dangerous.

PARIS—From Algeria to Hong Kong, Sudan to Puerto Rico, people all over the world have been turning out in the streets this year to confront policies and regimes that previously seemed all but invulnerable. And through relentless, largely peaceful protests they’ve had amazing success.

“Largely peaceful.” Uh huh. You’ll squeal like stuck little piggies when Real Americans finally get themselves a bellyfull, and some of that same mostly-peacefulness that far too many of us have already experienced from your side gets unleashed upside your heads for a change.

There is a lesson here. Americans disgusted by Donald J. Trump, disheartened by his control over the Senate and Supreme Court, demoralized by the consistent support he enjoys from two-fifths of the population, and appalled by his incitement of gun-toting racists, might want to take note.

The examples of mass demonstrations that have taken on, and in some cases taken down, terrible leaders show there are formulas that can be applied in many places, including the mainland of the United States of America. There’s even an illustrative equation.

Why have we not seen this kind of concerted, continuous combination of mass and velocity in the United States?

Maybe the American opposition to the Trump regime really isn’t as impassioned as many rants on Twitter might suggest. Or maybe those are just onanistic ends in themselves. There’s been a lot of obvious passivity: waiting for Robert Mueller to take care of everything, or pretending that the symbolic act of impeachment will squeeze the sleaze out of office.

Certainly, by comparison with the demonstrators in other parts of the world there’s a hint of sloth and even of cowardice.

When I broached some of these ideas on Twitter (where else?) one tweep complained impotently that “we” couldn’t even get Twitter to take down the president’s account, as if that would solve anything.

More than one suggested fear of Trump supporters with guns acts as a deterrent.

Glad to hear it; that means the Second Amendment, against all odds, is still working as intended. It also suggests there might actually remain some small hope, however miniscule, of you frothing fascists coming to your senses and stepping back from the brink before it’s too late. People like you are precisely whom the Founders warned us about; the 2A was written not to protect anybody’s right to hunt but to act as a deterrent to your kind, a last line of defense should you fail to heed its warning at last.

Your fear is wise and proper. May God grant that you never lose or dismiss it—for ALL our sakes.

Warning order

Strong message follows. STRONG.

Dear Leftards:

You irrepressible commie halfwits think you’ve got the cards. You’re the idiot talking tough with the shotgun in your hand, and you’re about to get comeuppance. In Louis L’Amour’s memorable phrase, you’re about to have your meathouse torn down. With a mere couple of nutbags (mainly your own nutbags, nota bene) doing what nutbags do, you imagine you’ve got enough pull now to leverage your way into more asinine abridgments of the Constitution.

You haven’t, you won’t, and you really, really need to knock it off.

We’re really not kidding.

You’ve had all the slices of our cake you’re ever getting.

A lot of people thought we’d be facing ramped up anti-gun legislation long before now, because Shrillary and the Clinton Family Crime Syndicate looked like a shoe-in…until she wasn’t. 

And serious people were ready, then, to open the ball you’re itching for now.

If TPTB were to decide they could set the last vestiges of the Constitution on fire, there’s more than a few that would take it upon themselves as a point of honor, not to wait cowering inside their homes, but to go out hunting OPFOR, 24/7/365. And they’d get more than one scalp apiece.

In short, minions of Leftardia and Stupidia, you have blundered into a minefield, on a pogo stick.
Stop what you’re doing, tiptoe out, and pray to whatever deity you think appropriate that you get away with your skins.

Because if you insist on pushing your revolution, you’re going to get the war of which you cannot grasp, and the results of which you cannot even conjure in your wildest fever-swamp nightmares.

And your opponents, who’ve been stacking in supplies and loading magazines, are shifting from backing away, and hoping the fight you long for doesn’t come, and instead coming to a feeling of thinking it’s about time to roll up their sleeves, and end you.

Not your party.
Not your progressive communist utopia.
You.
For all values of that word
.

Every goddamned traitorous last one of you. Followed by your spouses, your children, your pets, your semi-domesticated illegal alien hordes, your schemes, your putrescent institutions, your metastasizing socialist programs, and every festering vestige of pustulence you’ve spewed onto a country you do not understand, didn’t build, and over which you and yours will never rule.

The comments-section discussion goes in all sorts of directions one might not expect, including a fairly devious gun-grab proposal from someone claiming to be “military intelligence” (but probably isn’t) and another claiming to be a “Real Conservative” (but DEFINITELY isn’t). In response to both of those fantasy-fascist douchebags—along with every other half-assed pantywaisted gun-grabbing Stalin wannabe all the way down to the umpteenth generation of ’em—I’ll just repeat my usual offer: Come and take them.

Enough talking. It’s your move, Lefty asstards. So make it already. Let’s all see how that works out for ya.

Four more years terms!

Endorsed from here, because why the hell not.

Peter Strzok, the central figure in both the FBI’s burying of Hillary Clinton’s crimes and in carrying out the “insurance policy” of his lover, Lisa Page, to use the powers of the national security establishment to take out a U.S. presidential candidate, is strolling back in to FBI Headquarters these days as though it was just another day at the office.

I am not making this up.

“Strzok is in the (HQ) building all the time,” one FBI insider revealed, according to a recent media report at True Pundit. “He is taking meetings or part of meetings.” The article goes on, “FBI sources confirm Strzok has been granted access to FBI facilities in Washington, D.C. and its headquarters building on numerous occasions since he was sacked in August 2018.”

Strzok is the man who emphatically told former FBI lawyer Lisa Page that they would “stop” Mr. Trump from winning the 2016 election. And they would do that using a fraudulently predicated counterintelligence investigation based on “evidence” planted by one of their own assets, Joseph Mifsud, a mysterious Maltese professor widely linked to Western intelligence services, on a hapless Trump campaign volunteer, George Papadopoulos.

Yet now we learn that not only is Strzok being permitted back into FBI Headquarters (perhaps as a paid contractor?), but he still holds his security clearances. “He (Strzok) is getting in with a visitor’s badge and is involved in meetings,” one FBI insider said. The same article notes, “Maybe they are all trying to get their story straight before things go public.” Moreover, it continues, “FBI sources said when Strzok is not at the Hoover building he has been holding meetings with high-level DOJ brass at a location across the street from the Bureau’s Pennsylvania Avenue base.”

One can only sit back and marvel at the churchbell-size balls on the guy. Strzzzoozzk’s obvious nonchalant confidence regarding his status and impunity doesn’t say anything good about the likelihood of Barr and Co’s investigations yielding much in the way of meaningful results, either. The entire cabal of seditious reprobates of right ought to be trembling their teeth loose at the prospect of a speedy trial, followed by a first-class hanging. That they clearly are not is disheartening, to say the very least.

Donald Trump’s presidency has revealed that our country is in the grip of an entrenched bureaucracy whose hold, I am of the increasing opinion, may take decades to break. This anecdote about Peter Strzok’s continued security clearances and access to a building that President Trump nominally controls illustrates the vicelike grasp that “Deep State” players continue to hold over our government. Presidents come and go, but the powerful, embedded apparatchiks remain, and protect their own.

This is why I say, figuratively speaking, that our country needs five terms of Donald Trump. President Trump of course is limited to two terms as president under the Twenty-Second Amendment, but if we are to break the incredible power of the Christopher Wray-types that populate the upper echelons of our government, we will need successor presidents with the same dogged mindset as President Trump to bring rogue agencies like the FBI to heel. It may take twenty years — a generation.

Gonna take a helluva lot more than that, I’m afraid. The Deep State was way longer than any 20 years a-building, and it was way more than just one guy a-building it, too. Even then, we’re assuming ridding ourselves of it can be done at all without violence, bloodshed, and national immiseration. As for “break the incredible power of the Christopher Wray-types” etc, a good start on that project would be for Trump to stop inexplicably hiring and/or promoting pernicious Deep State termites and Ogabe stay-behind saboteurs and start giving them the boot instead.

Wait, he’s still alive?

Tired, raddled old has-been pops off for no good reason, beclowns self.


Yeah, whatever. In reality, though, we should take Lee’s squalid little rant seriously, because against all odds he’s actually quite correct: what he’s threatening is without doubt precisely what the Left has planned for us, should Americans ever make the almost certainly-fatal mistake of allowing them to seize power again.

So yeah, preach it, Tommy-rot, and thanks a pantload for the heads-up. Read it, learn it, live it, Real Americans.

Via Breitbart, who mischaracterizes Tommy-rot as Mertley Croi’s “frontman,” when he was actually just the drummer.

Storm clouds a-gathering

Codevilla on how to ignite a civil war.

In societies riven by mutual hate, the people who control the police and public communications make all the difference. When they maintain impartiality, as did Germany’s Weimar government while the Nazis and Communists struggled for primacy, partisan warfare tends to be resolved politically—though the results are harsh. When societal hatred or the partiality of authorities results in deaths, long-smoldering cold civil war can blaze into holocaust.

We Americans are now facing the danger of a civil war thus ignited. We do not think of civil war this way because our Civil War from 1861 to 1865 was less a conflict within society than it was a highly organized war between states. That war notwithstanding, personal friendships and mutual esteem persisted on both sides, such as that between Ulysses S. Grant and prominent Confederate General James Longstreet.

What we face now is worse.

Probably, yeah. What I’m even more confident of, though, is this: we have NO IDEA what it will actually be like. Not how it might begin, nor how it might play out, nor how long it might go on, nor how it might end, nor what shape its aftermath might take.

I’ve long been annoyed at how most politicians, pundits, and others—left, right, whatever—insist on viewing the Trumpian uprising exclusively through the lens of the past. They base their analyses on established rules that have been upended and made irrelevant. Vanishingly few of them seem able to grasp that maybe, just maybe, the societal tsunami represented by Trump and his supporters might not play out in precise accord with the old, established playbook they’re comfortable with. Even some of the writers I like and regularly excerpt here fall into this trap.

And I don’t get that, I really don’t, especially when it comes from the people who were most shocked and stunned by Trump’s 2016 victory. Seems to me that those most humiliated by the shattering of their predictions of a surefire Hillary!™ win would be a little more circumspect about their obviously misplaced faith in Ye Olde Ways now, and would be among the quickest to consider abandoning them. Guess sometimes hindsight ain’t 20-20 after all.

And the same principle applies to CW speculation. Any civil war we might wind up stumbling blindly into will likely share one, and only one, characteristic with any of its predecessors: it will be nothing like what any of us expects now. In any event, though, Codevilla knows who should be held accountable.

What should happen, what can happen, when the real, existing violent organizations of the Left—Antifa and the several radical black organizations—try to exclude or to punish? Several cities—Portland, Oregon and Charlottesville, Virginia among them—have had their streets taken over. What happens when these organizations organize mobs to harass their least favorite people? What happens when some of them wind up dead?

At a certain point, the other side shoots back. Here as elsewhere, the several police forces may be expected to split and take opposite sides. Then the army’s special forces become the arbiters, and the war rages.

We know that our ruling class having largely made government into a partisan thing, America has crossed the threshold of revolution. While we have no way of knowing what lies ahead, we know that the spiral of political violence has already taken its first fateful turns, and that the logic of our partisan ruling class is pushing for more.

Heaven help them should they get it.

Update! Call me a weirdo, maybe, but I find at least some reassurance among Bill’s words of despair:

What is there to say? It’s all so frickin’ predictable.

We’ve got a bunch of new judges, many of whom seem…oh…shaky, at best.

We replace swamp monsters with new swamp monsters. Everybody has lots of excuses and explanations for that, but the fact remains – one step forward, one step back.

It’s depressing. And starting to get, at least for me, profoundly uninteresting.

Is there going to be a hot civil war?

No, because there are not enough people in this country willing to point a gun at another person and pull the trigger over political differences. The vast majority of fatal gun violence is carried out over disputes over real things like drugs and familial hatreds. The percentage where somebody pulls the trigger because they hate conservatives, or hate immigrants, or hate leftists is tiny, little more than statistical noise.

That may change, but I’d be surprised if it happens any time soon.

I bolded the comforting part to distinguish it from the rest, which is all the more bleak because it’s, y’know, true.

Keeping hope alive

Jabba the Nadler just can’t let go.

Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler argued Sunday that the impeachment of President Donald Trump was still a strong possibility, claiming during a segment of CNN’s “State of the Union” that the president had “violated the law six ways from Sunday.”

“I want to clear this up here. You’re investigating possible impeachment but you haven’t formally opened an impeachment inquiry. Are you trying to have it both ways here?” Tapper asked.

“No, we’re not trying to have it both ways,” Nadler responded. “We said exactly what we’re doing. We’re investigating the question of — we’re investigating the corruptions of the administration, the abuses of power, what Mueller showed, the possible violations of the emoluments clause, that might recommend articles of impeachment and it has been recommended to the committee and we’re investigating to determine whether we should report those to the house and we’re going to court to get more evidence.”

Tapper turned the question to Nadler personally, asking whether he would support impeachment.

“My personal view is that he richly deserves impeachment,” Nadler said. “He has done many impeachable — he’s violated the law six ways from Sunday. But that is not the question. The question is can we develop enough evidence to put before the American people who — we’ve broken the log jam.”

“The president and the attorney general were lying to the American people saying that the Mueller report found no obstruction or collusion and exonerated the president,” the chairman continued. “I think the hearing the other day was an inflection point because it showed quite clearly that the report did not exonerate the president.”

Ahem *cough cough* harrumph: The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities. Direct quote, you pathetic loser. But by all means, you go right ahead on with your bad self. You, and the rest of your treacherous, treasonous co-conspirators. Let’s all just see what your seditious, anti-American skullduggery gets you in the end.

Crime and (no) punishment

Good ol’ Tucker lays it all out clean and tight for us.

The Russia hoax ended on Wednesday — we can say that. It ended not with a bang, but with the muddled half-memories of a fading old man slipping in and out of focus.

America sat transfixed by Robert Mueller’s halting testimony before Congress. No honest person could have come away at the end believing that the president of the United States colluded with the Russian government to steal an election. That was the allegation, you’ll remember.

And then, after the most extensive investigation in modern American history, we found the truth. And so, we can say conclusively, once again, what we told you the day this all started, the whole thing is a crock. It never happened. They were lying to you. That’s clear now. The debate is over.

What should happen to these people now? Congressman Adam Schiff, for example. Schiff claimed he possessed actual evidence of Russian collusion. And he didn’t just say that one time, he said it repeatedly.

In the end, you know what happened — or didn’t. Schiff did not produce the evidence. He didn’t have it because it doesn’t exist. Schiff was bluffing, which is to say he was lying. He still is, actually. As of Wednesday, Schiff was continuing to claim that the Trump campaign “embraced foreign help, made use of it and covered it up.” In other words, collusion. Schiff still believes the collusion hoax.

Or does he? On Thursday, Adam Schiff went on CNN to carry water for his boss, Nancy Pelosi. “Impeachment might not be a great idea,” he told CNN’s viewers.

But wait, that doesn’t seem to make sense. If Donald Trump is working for a hostile foreign power, as Adam Schiff has told us countless times that he is, how can we not impeach him? No one on CNN asked Adam Schiff to explain that contradiction, unfortunately. Not that it matters. Think about it for a second, and you’ll see exactly what’s going on.

Adam Schiff never believed a word he was saying about Russian collusion. I suppose the good news is Schiff is not delusional. The bad news, though, is that Adam Schiff is a soulless liar. He is a man willing to say literally anything for political advantage, and that’s really the worst of all. Being a lunatic would be much more appealing than that.

For my money, Schiff is probably the lowest, most detestable piece of shit besmirching American politics today. To call him a dirty scumbag is to gratuitously slander dirty bags filled with scum. He is ten pounds of rancid sputum in a five pound sack. Apart from such damning traits as his nonexistent integrity or treacherous nature and speaking purely in physical terms, his bulbous, misshapen head and unpleasant face perfectly bespeak the noxious, calculating character festering within. The greasy, phony, off-kilter smile only adds to the broader nausea. Democrat-Socialist Rule Numero Uno applies tenfold to this asswart: when he’s smiling, it means capital-T Trouble for America.

“Soulless liar” is likely the most positive description a scrupulously honest person could ever offer of him. And even that is probably being overly generous to the abominable wretch. Of course, being the kind of (ulp!) “man” he is, Schiff would probably be quite pleased with the moniker, no doubt considering it flattery most ebullient. And he might just be right, considering; as condemnatory as it is, it doesn’t go far enough, is way too polite, and still far better than he deserves.

The Democrat-Socialists’ most spectacularly, awesomely awesome self-beclownment yet

One for the record books, people. Yes, it’s difficult to see how they’re going to top yesterday’s total fiasco. But we all know they will—and that right soon, likely enough.


Ahh, but before they all get their ducks in a row and start trying to claim they never really expected all that much from this “hearing” con-job, remember:


Next: is it parody? It just gets ever harder to tell, don’t it?

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Robert Mueller was being criticized for seemingly answering questions slowly, not recalling key details of his investigation, and appearing to be confused throughout his testimony Wednesday.

After a brief recess, Mueller insisted he was entirely lucid.

“I hear a few murmurs out there that I’ve lost it,” he said. “Well, I haven’t lost it. I’ve still got it. In fact, I’m still sharp as a tack.”

Before testimony could resume, however, Mueller interrupted the proceedings, appearing to reach for his cell phone. “I really have to take this,” he said apologetically as he reached into his pocket and pulled out a banana. “Yeah, go for Bob.”

Mueller proceeded to have what appeared to be a five-minute conversation on the fruit as bewildered congresspeople looked on. “Well, tell them I don’t want to be there this Friday. Matlock’s on, you know that. You know I don’t go out when Matlock is on.”
He shrugged apologetically at those in the room, mouthing “sorry.”

At publishing time, Mueller was seen giving clear, concise, lucid testimony to a soap dispenser in the restroom.

Heh. I do have a slight problem here, though. I admit I haven’t watched a single moment of Mueller’s “testimony,” and I don’t plan to either. But for whatever it’s worth, here’s my idea: Mr Integrity’s senile-old-fool act was just that: an act.

Since his bogus report came out, he’s been sliming around tossing out innuendo and insinuation right and left, broadly dropping hints about not being able to “exonerate” Trump—a legal standard accepted precisely NOWHERE in the entirety of American jurisprudence, as such the one and only thing truly NOT “in his purview” as special witch-hunter—and casting aspersions to anyone willing to listen about Trump’s guilt, particularly on the issue of “obstruction”—another non-issue irrelevance, since, as declared explicitly in his own fucking report, there was no underlying crime for Trump to have “obstructed” the investigation of.

No. Just…no. The Mueller “investigation” was from the beginning no more nor less than exactly what Trump said it was all along: a partisan witch-hunt whose goal was NOT to look into “Russian collusion,” but to: A) obfuscate the Obama admin’s and Hillary campaign’s multiple illegalities; B) smear Trump, shift attention away from their actual crimes to his nonexistent ones, also protecting dirty co-conspirators like Comey, Brennan, et al; and C) provide a pretext for removing Trump from office via impeachment, the 25th Amendment option, or whatever else they could somehow cobble together.

Notice how nobody, not one living soul, made any mention at all of Mueller’s putative mental difficulties back in May, when the report came out? Nor have they since then, when he was casting his slippery little aspersion hither and yon, going to such extremes with the campaign to “keep hope alive” that Barr felt it necessary to call ol’ Honest Bob directly, with recorders running and witnesses present? Barr doesn’t seem to have noticed Mueller being incoherent, confused, and out of touch during that conversation, did he? Odd, that.

Next, the Congressional Democrat-Socialist coup plotters spent the last two weeks coaching Mueller on his testimony, a breach of ethics so broad you could drive a Hummer through it. And guess what? Not one peep from anyone about Mueller’s sudden-onset Alzheimer’s. Not that I would have expected the conniving Demonrats to public acknowledge it were it true, mind. But given how important this was to their coup plot, don’t you think that maybe, just maybe, they would have tried to postpone the thing, or something else along those lines, in order to avert the looming disaster?

And make no mistake, folks, disaster it most certainly was. But you don’t have to take my word for it.


How bad was it? Even Hitler himself knows. A grief-stricken Chris Wallace, Fox News’s senior NeverTrumpTard, also acknowledged the catastrophe, however heartbrokenly:

Wallace said, “This has been a disaster for the Democrats and a disaster for the reputation of Robert Mueller. He has seemed very uncertain with his brief. He doesn’t seem to know what things are in the report.”

Bingo, and no accident. Mueller even made a completely spurious and risible claim to total ignorance about Fusion GPS—which, along with everything else I just mentioned, bolsters my belief that his “I’m old, I’m confused!” routine was nothing but subterfuge; there can’t be a single soul in the whole country who’s paid even cursory attention to the news these last two years who doesn’t know perfectly well who Fusion GPS is, and what their role was in this whole flea circus. Mueller was lying—full stop, end of story. His stated reluctance to testify at the Democrat-Socialists’ dumbshow, along with his testimony, can be put down to a last-ditch, desperate attempt to evade the perjury trap he had already laid for himself. Brandon Weichert says don’t be fooled:

What Americans saw Wednesday was an act by Mueller to deflect attention away from the fact that his investigation was never going to “prove” any “collusion.” The entire thing was a grotesque act of political theater designed to give the anti-Trump forces of the establishment the boost they needed going into 2020.

Mueller also wanted to protect critical intelligence sources from deeper public scrutiny, meaning that those responsible for initiating the absurd investigation into Trump will not be punished for their wrongdoing and, further, that these same people will be free to attempt similar shenanigans in the future. That’s right. The deep state will live to fight another day. Now that their attempt to defeat Trump through investigations and false accusations has faltered, Mueller would rather be viewed as a hapless hack than as the corrupt top cop he is.

Mueller, I believe, accepted the role as special counsel investigating claims of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence because his ego would not allow him to pass up the chance. Not only did Mueller personally and politically dislike Trump (being a “Republican,” as we know, does not preclude NeverTrumpism), but as a career federal prosecutor, Mueller could not help but to envision himself the man to take down this much-maligned president.

Pride goes before a fall, though, and Mueller has suffered through the greatest ego deflation of any public figure in recent memory. Touted as the purest of the pure; proclaimed to be the most respected man in Washington; portrayed as being too smart and tough for Trump to handle, Mueller has been stymied at every turn—and had minimal effect on Trump.

The world did not witness the public nervous breakdown of a once-powerful member of the elite in that hearing. Instead, we saw the shiftiest move an inside operator could make in these tough circumstances. Mueller played dumb; he allowed himself to be the center of a partisan feeding frenzy, while ominously insisting that the president was neither guilty nor innocent—a sort of legal purgatory, awaiting final judgement. 

Yep, that’s about it. Mueller squirmed, wriggled, and gyrated like a worm on a hot griddle, doing his level best to avoid speaking the truth, which remains exactly as was stated in the report which bears his now-blackened name: “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Ultimately, the whole doomed farce was never about “Russian collusion” anyway, really. In the end, it all comes down to one, thing and one thing alone: the Democrat-Socialist Party, a criminal enterprise masquerading as a legitimate political party, flatly refuses to abide by the results of any election they lose. They sought to overturn Trump’s 2016 victory right out of the gate, as free and fair an election as any can be that has the Democrat-Socialists participating in it. So far, they’ve failed. But there’s a cautionary note to be sounded as well, and Francis does so:

The Left is desperate. Desperate people do desperate things. They stake it all on long odds. They grasp at their sole remaining chance to prevail, however slender, and refuse to look past it. And if possible, they shave the dice, tilt the pinball machine, bribe the refs.

This is the hour of maximum danger.

Recall how many Left-inclined commentators and spokesmen have worried publicly about the outbreak of a second civil war, fomented by us in the Right. Leftist mouthpieces have a history of “worrying” about what the Right will do, while (or just before) the Left does that exact thing. That is where the Republic stands as you read this.

There’s no need for me to wrap hundreds more words around this matter. The writing on the wall is large enough to be read from orbit.

He ain’t wrong about that. Powder dry, mags loaded, y’all. That said, though, I just can’t resist a little pointing and laughing, in the form of my own message to the shitlib Left; the Democrat-Socialist seditionist politicians; the NeverTrumpTard phony conservatives; despicable cucks of all stripes; Enemedia hacks; and every other huckster, Swamp rat, and general reprobate guilty of either foisting this pustulent parade of scoundrels on us or cheerleading the damned thing from the wings. STRONG message follows, on behalf of Da Prez and all of his loyal, much-put-upon supporters:

SUCK IT, you goddamned motherfucking cretinous reptiles. Suck it long, suck it deep, suck it hard, suck it good. And when you’re done lip-locking my schlong, don’t you even DREAM of spitting back any spunk. You’ll swallow every motherfucking drop, lest I clout you right upside your fucking head with a nail-studded Louisville Slugger and make you do it all over again. Then DROP DEAD. And I DO mean dead, dead, dead. You filthy pieces of shit. You bottom-feeding, loathsome scumsuckers. You treasonous, contemptible fuckwits. You cancerous polyps on a warthog’s asshole. Fuck every last one of you all to Hell and gone. EVERY. LAST. ONE.

There, I think that about covers it.

A tale of two countries

Tell me again all about who’s the party of the rich and who’s the party of the working stiff, whydon’tcha.

Providing free health care for illegal aliens at taxpayer expense may not be very popular nationwide, but is commonplace in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Boston. Gun control is a loser nationwide, but a sure thing in the big blue cities. Even proposals to take away private health plans, allow rapists and terrorists to vote from prison, and open the border pick up more support there. 

The 2020 Democrats aren’t speaking to Americans as a whole.

That’s because they hate them, and no longer care if Real Americans know it.

Instead they’re addressing wealthy donors from 6 major cities, and some of their satellite areas, whose money they need to be able to buy teams, ads and consultants to help them win in places like New Hampshire and Iowa.

New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles show up in the top 5 donor cities for most of the top 2020 candidates, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Pete Buttigieg. Boston shows up in the top 10, not only for Bernie and Warren, but for Kamala and Buttigieg. Seattle appears in the top 10 for Bernie, Warren, and Buttigieg. Washington D.C. features in the top 10 for Bernie, Booker, Warren, Kamala, and Buttigieg. And the rest of America doesn’t really matter. 

Not if you’re a Democrat.

Beyond the regional geography, there is a political and industrial geography shaping the 2020 field with New York City and Berkeley employees funding the candidacy of a Vermont socialist and the employees of public and private universities (but either way heavily subsidized by taxpayers) across the country funding the rise of a Massachusetts socialist with an academic background. 

By contrast, Trump is the only 2020 candidate whose top 5 donor groups don’t contain a single big data firm, but do contain employees of the United States Army and the Department of Defense. He’s also the only candidate whose top donor groups contain multiple branches of the military, the Army, Navy, and Air Force (Space Force still pending), but not a single college or FAANG tech monstrosity. 

In contrast to the 2020 Dems, there isn’t a single law firm, but there are several manufacturing firms. Meanwhile not a single of the top 2020 Dems appears to have a manufacturing donor base. 

The sharp contrast between Googlers and steelworkers, between professors and soldiers, draws a truer picture of the clash of cultures between the Democrats and Republicans, lefties and righties in America. 

The 2020 election will come down to the question of whether six influential blue cities will be able to buy the election and dictate their politics to the country, whether the big tech firms and professors will be able to drown out the sailors and steelworkers, or whether the rest of the nation will be heard. 

Which is all you really need to know to explain both why they want open borders and to do away with the Electoral College. Trump having done such a bang-up job of exposing their flimsy pretense to patriotism, moderation, and sanity as a complete sham, they’ve decided to abandon Joe Sixpack and import an impoverished, illiterate, America-hating, Third World dependent class which is much more likely to return them to power instead. Poor ol’ Joe’s stubborn insistence on bitterly clinging to his guns, his religion, his freedom of speech, and his flag-waving IslamohomotransFeminaziphobia was taxing their patience with him anyway.

Mo’ bettah busted

Even her name is a lie.

Please read the verified evidence below — and read it alongside the three years of verified evidence published by Scott Johnson, Preya Samsundar, and myself (our work is linked here). The answers to those questions about 2009 appear to give probable cause to investigate Omar for eight instances of perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, up to eight years of state and federal tax fraud, two years of federal student loan fraud, and even bigamy.

To be clear: The facts describe perhaps the most extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history.

The preceding information was given to me by multiple sources within the Minneapolis Somali community. The verifiable evidence corroborating their information follows below:

In 1995, Ilhan entered the United States as a fraudulent member of the “Omar” family.

That is not her family. The Omar family is a second, unrelated family which was being granted asylum by the United States. The Omars allowed Ilhan, her genetic sister Sahra, and her genetic father Nur Said to use false names to apply for asylum as members of the Omar family.

Ilhan’s genetic family split up at this time. The above three received asylum in the United States, while Ilhan’s three other siblings — using their real names — managed to get asylum in the United Kingdom.

Ilhan Abdullahi Omar’s name, before applying for asylum, was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi.

Enough already. She is a grifter, a fraud, an America-hating agitprop artist who conned her way here under false pretenses. She is as crooked as they come, from a family whose corruption is nothing short of staggering. As with every swindler and his marks, she harbors only contempt for the nation whose misguided largesse she takes for granted, whose generosity she abuses. She has no right to be here; Americans have no obligation to indulge her myriad pathologies, nor to endure her endless, outrageous vituperation. She has broken our laws, many times over. Her presence in Congress defiles our institutions—which, given their already-tarnished state, is saying something indeed.

She is a an ingrate, a liar, a reprobate. She contributes nothing of value to our government, our traditions, our politics, or our people; her arrogance, her grotesque sense of entitlement, render her incapable of anything other than taking without thankfulness, constantly demanding more, and considering these undeserved gifts not a blessing but her due. She is entirely despicable. Send. Her. Back.

Steinberg and his colleagues at Powerline have done a mighty work indeed with the investigation that culminates in the above-linked and -quoted piece exposing Ilhan Elmi for the vile, rancid pustule she really is, and my cap is most humbly doffed to them for their efforts.

Fed up

Apologies for the fair-use violation and all, but I’m afraid I’m gonna have to C&P all of this one.

Since Election Night, I’ve been called a racist, a moron, an idiot, a traitor to my gender, and un-American. I’ve been accused of supporting a rapist and a Russian agent. I’ve been questioned about what kind of mother I am to my daughters. Trust me, this is a short list and…

a vicious environment all Trump voters/supporters have endured for three years. Meanwhile, Dems like Omar demean our country and threaten to strip us of our vote—OUR RIGHTS—by impeaching a president they detest. How exactly should Trump voters respond? Gee, let’s compromise?

The Left started this race war. They degrade citizenship. They trash Americans. They shoot at GOP congressmen and target pro-life high schoolers and chase people out of public spaces. They make the dangerous Nazi comparisons. They jeopardize our security and tranquility

The Dems and media and NeverTrump LIED for more than two years that Trump had colluded with the Kremlin to steal the election. Innocent people were investigated by their own government and harassed by the media and mocked by the public. To date no one has been held accountable

And what, now we’re supposed to watch our manners? Just take the abuse with a smile? Listen to ungrateful, unaccomplished, spoiled lawmakers insult us and this country and the president and what, be kind? No thanks

No thanks my ass. More like: HELL no.

In fairness, though, this is at least partially our own fault, for having rolled over and let them slide for so long. They’ve become so accustomed to supine complacency from our side they’re stunned at the very different response they’re beginning to get now.

Tough. Hint to shitlibs: it’s gonna get worse. Much, much worse.

Hook, line, sinker

Crazy. Like a fox.

While some continue to be distracted by style and skip substance with Trump, and others, like certain peacetime conservatives at legacy publications, become apologists for the anti-Semitic Ilhan Omar, many others still seem to be missing the entire point. However inartful Trump’s comments might be, it really does turn the questions around on them.

Why are they here? Of all the 195 countries in the world, why did you, Ilhan Omar, come here? And why are you proposing ideas that are deeply un-American, from coercive socialism to the loss of national sovereignty through open borders? Why are you and you gal pals proposing ideas that generations of Americans since our founding have rejected? What ideas on any level are you proposing that have anything to do with our constitutional republic or its perpetuation?

The answer, of course, is that none of Omar’s or her three colleagues’ ideas have anything to do with our traditions regarding the role of government. In fact, those who consistently propose ideas that are un-American, as they do, are rightly called un-American.

Every time Trump goads Democrats or the liberal media—but I repeat myself—they take the bait. Every. Single. Time. You would think at some point, after two-and-a-half years of this, Democrats would realize they’ve let Trump become their Pied Piper; he calls the tune and they dance to it.

But they don’t. What he has done this time is to put the four freshmen communists (let’s drop the “socialist” moniker and call them what they are) front and center. To “own Trump,” and because of intersectionality and the far left beliefs that have captured many of the Democratic activists and small-dollar donors, Democrats mindlessly have come to the defense of these women.

But to own Trump, Democrats also have to own everything these women stand for, including their refusal to disavow Antifa and al-Qaeda. What are the repercussions of this? Well, it allows Trump to do exactly what he’s wanted to: make 2020 a referendum on the competing worldviews of coercive socialism versus a free market, capitalistic approach, but also to show how un-American the Left truly is.

Most of the time, Ocasio-Cortez and Omar are walking in-kind contributions to the Trump re-election effort. Trump’s goal has been to make all of this the framework of the narrative, and then to harden the narrative. He threw out the hook and bait, the Democrats bit, and now he’s setting the hook.

He’s succeeding thanks to the mindlessness of Trump Derangement Syndrome but also because of the shallow, short term thinking and behavior of the Democrats. The Democrats have chosen or, perhaps one could argue, were actually compelled by the grassroots, to embrace the communist vipers. Problem is these movements, as history shows us with the Jacobins of the French Revolution, become all consuming fires, many times annihilating those who started the conflagration. Just ask Robspierre.

Only one way left for them to tamp down the blaze. Guess what it is.

Many prominent liberals have ripped into Democratic candidates for sponsoring ideas too far from mainstream America. Their advice? Stop being so honest and start lying.

START lying? You implying they ever STOPPED? On the other hand, it’s kinda dispositive, I suppose, when a sudden burst of honesty is so radically out of character for you that it very nearly destroys your entire criminal syndicate masquerading as a political party. Tells the whole story all by itself, that does.

Trump doubles down, Omar rows it back

Even when she’s trying to “clarify” her America-hate, she can’t help but put her foot in her big mouth.

Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar claimed Saturday that she “probably” loves America more than people born in the United States.

Omar made the comments at the progressive Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia when asked why she often appears to be an opponent of American values, according to the Washington Examiner.

“There is something I get criticized for all the time,” she told the audience as she sat on a discussion panel.

“It is that I am anti-American because I criticize the United States. I believe, as an immigrant, I probably love this country more than anyone that is naturally born,” Omar said.

The congresswoman, who has often been accused of using anti-Semitic language because of her constant criticism of Israel, has claimed that the United States likes to talk about “American exceptionalism” abroad but it does not fulfill those values at home.

“So, that hypocrisy is one that I’m bothered by. I want America the great to be America the great,” she said.

It’ll improve by orders of magnitude the day you take the fuck off on back to Mogadishu, you slattern.

Days earlier she was jubilant about Somalia’s Independence Day.

No one should deny that she loves her country, I guess. It just ain’t this one.

Her comments Saturday come on the heels of a highly-publicized spat between her and Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has said the congresswoman hates America.

“Omar isn’t disappointed in America. She’s enraged by it,” Carlson said Tuesday night. “Virtually every public statement she makes accuses Americans of bigotry and racism. This is an immoral country, she says. She has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people.” (RELATED: Rep. Ilhan Omar Describes 9/11 Terror Attacks: ‘Some People Did Something)

Omar dismissed Carlson as  a “racist fool” over his comments.

Because OF COURSE she did. What else can she do now but fall back on that old-time, tried and true Democrat-Socialist blocking maneuver?

Carlson said Omar’s rebuttal was typical because “she learned young that crying racism pays.”

Not this time, I don’t think. We’ve already heard far too much of that tripe from other Democrat-Socialists, for decades now, to be in the market for more of the same from this miserable tapeworm.

As for Trump’s supposed faux pas, he remains cool, cocky, and crazy like a fox.

Omar, it turns out, is a massive liability for the Democrats. Making her the face of the Democrats is a pretty good way of triggering a GOP landslide, not just in the White House, but in the House of Representatives.

Among the working-class voters Democrats must win over to win the presidency, and, for that matter, both houses of Congress, Omar sports an abysmal 9% approval rating along with a 53% recognition rate. She’s the most unpopular of all of them. According to the Daily Wire:

A new internal Democrat poll in swing districts released on Sunday showed that socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are extremely unpopular and that they may cost the Democratic Party the presidency and the House in 2020.

“Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view,” Axios reported. “Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.”

This is deadly stuff, and clearly, Trump is targeting the weakest link among this far-left squad and seeking to get all of his Democratic opponents (blocking his border wall, refusing to pass any legislation both could agree on) personified as Omar. That’s important, because most voters who elect Democrats like their congressmen and don’t see the extremism of their votes. Omar, on the other hand, pretty well is identical in her voting patterns to them and why a GOP House majority is key for enacting his agenda.

Risk, sure. But great leaders always take risks. This is big-risk, big-reward politics. It’s the stuff from which political legends are made.

It is at that. And it’s a sheer pleasure to watch Trump so masterfully weaving it.

Caught in a trap of their own devising

Kurt’s right: it IS delicious to watch.

The pain of your enemy should be your joy, and we conservatives are pegging the joymeter right about now watching the political sepsis that is CongressKid AOC and her merry band of idiots running rampant within the flabby body of the Democrat Party. There’s only one solution to the gangrene caused by her and that brother-marrying weirdo who cheers for the wrong side in Black Hawk Down and Ms. Palestine. You have to amputate. But the donkeys can’t do it. That would cripple or kill the patient. So, what to do about the infection ravaging their party? It’s quite the dilemma.

Quite the hilarious dilemma.

Oh Nancy Pelosi, you thought you could harness the eager energy of these Socialist Sisters of Mediocrity for your own purposes, but you didn’t quite understand the situation. For limo libs like you – literally, because you’re a zillionaire – all this “for the little guy” stuff was always just a pose and a cynical scam. You don’t believe it. You just exploit it because you figure that the shiftless saps and lay-about suckers are your constituency will like it, and they do. You talk a good game about helping and caring for the downtrodden, but if one of the local bums tried to use the sidewalk in your neighborhood as a john, you’d have the Scat Francisco PD all over him like Jerry Nadler on a doughnut.

You’ve gotten used to posing as the heroic rebel voice speaking out in a stirring defense of the status quo that made you rich n’ powerful. All the other Democrats used to feel the same way. You were all in on the scam. Wink, nod and back to business as usual. But these dummies, leveraging their youthful inexperience, actually believe the nonsense they spew – that you all spew – and they are now learning that you really don’t.

And now you’re realizing that it’s not just Normals they want to cart off to the guillotine. You’re on the tumbrel manifest too, ready to be hauled down that bumpy path to a permanent haircut.

What to do? The problem Democrats made for themselves by trying to harness the power of hate-fueled idiocy for their own purposes is coming back to bite them right on the Ted Lieu. They’ll have to either amputate the radicals, which they can’t do and survive, or submit to the radicals, which they can’t do and survive. It seems the Democrats can’t live with them, and can’t live without them.

Too bad. We’re going to need more popcorn.

Seeing as how they’re irrevocably committed to a proven-failure ideology, along with Real Americans finally having seen their worn, threadbare masks ripped off completely by Trump, I’d say their collapse into flailing, smoking ruin was probably inevitable. Long overdue; perhaps too late, even. But still a sheer delight. And to think that all it took to push them over the edge was just ONE lone, outsider Republican willing and eager to stand up to them at last.

Whoooaaa, big fellow!

So what with the same-old-crap nature of the news after the advent of The Trumpening, combined with the pressure of eking out my meager living every day, I haven’t felt just incredibly motivated to do any posting the past several days, as y’all were no doubt aware. But then up jumps this little slice of irritation.



Now, this is all just SOP, the state of play nowadays, right? Note that nowhere in this horrible, awful, abominable, horribly horrible “racist” Tweetstorm did Trump mention A) anybody’s name, or B) anybody’s race. All he did was exactly what he’s done from the very beginning: unabashedly articulate and bring right out into the open the very thing that Real Americans have been saying and thinking for a very long time now. In fact, I’ve already said the exact same thing here myself, and more than just once too.

I’m quite confident it won’t come as anything like news to any of you here when I inform you that the Left, as is their wont, went absolutely hyper-ballistic bug-fuck nuts immediately. TEH RACISM! TEH BIGOTRY! TEH HATE! THE UNAMERICAN, THIS-IS-NOT-WHO-WE-ARE AS A NATION OF TEH IMMIGRANTS, ILLEGAL OR OTHERWISE! TEH OUTRAGE! All perfectly par for the usual course by now, part of the dismal tide of RACIST!!™ that greets every timid, half-hearted proposal that maybe we might should maybe just possibly make a start at the beginning of some kind of effort to get something resembling control over our borders, just perhaps possibly. No, the shitlib shriekers will brook no such nonsense, and them going into orbit with their Mark-1 Mod-0 howls of high dudgeon are nothing whatsoever new. Certainly, it wouldn’t be nearly enough to penetrate my blogging torpor enough to inspire a mention of it tonight.

No, what annoyed the living crap out of me was this recockulus Powerline post, lovingly linked to by one Ed Driscoll. The Cuckitude is strong with these ones, folks. Try not to let any of it splash back on you, it’ll stain most any fabric you might happen to be wearing.

A BLUNDER OF EPIC PROPORTIONS
Regular readers know that I am a fan of President Trump, and more often than not, a fan of his use of social media. But today he committed the worst unforced error of his presidency, one that we will hear about from the Democrats from now until November 2020.

Now, as John avers right away, he is by no means your garden-variety #NeverTrumpTard cretin; no David French, he, and good on him. But he’s wringing his hands over nothing here. I mean, come ON, dude; we’re going to “hear about (this) from the Democrats from now until November 2020”? Think so, do ya? In the first place: no, it’s not likely we will. In reality, this is likely just another of their everything-but-the-kitchen-sink stratagems, another wheeze from their bag of tired tricks that will be gone in about ten days, like all the others.

Moreover: if they DO decide that this is the one worth really trying to make stick, well, so the fuck what? Does anybody expect anything more from them at this point than a relentless, dogged, unceasing campaign to smear Trump, snooter him, keep him tied up in knots and preoccupied with anything and everything they can conjure up until they finally stagger across something that DOES hit home? Unfortunately, poor John’s unfounded hysteria is only just gathering steam:

The Democrats have been self-destructing, with the progressives denouncing Nancy Pelosi and other members of the party’s leadership as racists. That conflict has dominated the news, and I am sure Trump is right that Nancy Pelosi would be happy to work out travel arrangements to get rid of the Squad. But now she won’t have to. Trump’s attack on the Squad was so foolish that I would assume it to be a case of drunk-tweeting, except that the President doesn’t drink.

This is the headline in my home town paper (“Leave the US, Trump tells liberal congresswomen of color”—M), the Minneapolis Star Tribune. It will be the same in every newspaper across the country…

Again: AND? If it wasn’t that, do you seriously think it wouldn’t have been something else, and that they wouldn’t have puffed and blown quite as hard over it?

Of course not. Didja maybe notice how meticulously they crafted that headline, putting words in Trump’s mouth in order to dishonestly imply that Trump thinks every “liberal congresswomen of color” should leave the US immediately? Anybody out there believe that was either coincidence, or an honest mistake committed in good faith by the insidious Strib hacks?

At the risk of beginning to sound repetitious: THIS IS WHO THEY ARE, THIS IS WHAT THEY DO. They lie, they manipulate, they scheme, they play their game of jiggery-pokery with the truth until it’s completely unrecognizable. Trump did not one thing more than what he’s done all along: he stated an obvious but purportedly off-limits truth bluntly, without hesitation, shame, or regret. Far from being any kind of foolish “blunder” on his part, that sort of thing is exactly why Real Americans elevated him to the Presidency over the entire clown car of shambolic, hapless GOPe perennial also-rans in the first place.

We WANT him to say things like this. We NEED him to say things like this. We DEMAND it of him, in fact. It is precisely moments like these that help to paper over the inevitable disappointment and frustration with him here and there, shoring up his base of support. It is just as Limbaugh often says: this is what fighting back looks like, people. If you find it puzzling or discomfitting, well, it’s probably because it’s been so very damned long since you’ve seen it. Fighting back aggressively against shitlib swine—rising from the long-accustomed defensive crouch to take the offensive on our behalf—has become an unfamiliar, alien thing to Real Americans by now.

Happily, as John finds himself ever more deeply mired in the slough of despond, Steve Hayward steps in to offer a measure of clarity and calm, if only a somewhat lukewarm one:

I concur in part, and dissent in part (as they say at the Supreme Court). I agree with John that this is a case where Trump should have followed the old adage, “When your enemy is destroying himself, get out of the way.”

Not if you see a way to speed them along.

But Trump’s animal instincts come into play here. With a wedge opening up between the Democratic Party leadership and the noisy Four Freshmen reps (and I can guarantee that AOC is the least popular member of the House Democratic caucus), Trump has now forced Pelosi and every other Democrat to come to their defense, elevating their profile further and cementing them as the authoritative face of the Democratic Party. What’s the downside of that?

Ain’t none. And you can be assured he knew just what he was doing, too.

And if you read Trump’s language carefully (and the absence of typos and other typical Trump flourishes like CAPITAL LETTERS and “sad” make me wonder if Stephen Miller wrote them), it is like his clumsy Charlottesville remarks, taken out of context and twisted. Trump’s subtle target here is multiculturalism and “diversity”—the tacit premise of the left that America should be guilty and abject before the supposedly “oppressed” nations of what we used to call the Third World. Trump goes way too far as usual, but his bit about “come back and show us how” is actually a good argument. Once again, Trump may know what he is doing. What is it the old left liked to say? “Heighten the contradictions!”

Actually, Trump’s Charlottesville remarks weren’t “clumsy” at all; they were carefully excised from their proper context, distorted, and lied about so as to create something the toxic shitweasels of the shameless Left could use to their advantage. And they’re still being used that way, and will go right on being so used, as long as the Housebroken Right can be counted on to play along. Any among us who doesn’t expect such from the Left by now is mentally deficient, a pure simpleton.

I still wish Trump would lose his phone. But the over-reaction to this is utterly predictable.

Of course it was. Then, after letting this froth and boil for a week to ten days, it’ll be on to the next contrived Democrat-Socialist tempest in a teapot. Lather, rinse, repeat; count on it, the cycle is as reliable as an atomic clock. Or has anybody seen that nuthatch habitué, whats’ername, that Trump supposedly “raped” at Bloomingdales or Neiman-Marcus or someplace, around? Any ideas where the Democrat-Socialists’ favorite big-donor pedorapist, Jeffrey Epstein, might have suddenly taken himself off to? Say, whatever happened to that nice Alva Johnson lady anyway, she seemed like a decent sort?

What Trump has done here, is doing, is the very thing the Vichy GOPe’s Coup Cucks Clowns always refused to: he’s staying on the offensive, taking the fight to his enemies by any and all means he can think up. That’s just in his nature, bless his cantankerous heart. It’s yet another reason why I remain solidly in his camp, and most likely will for the duration. For now, I’ll let the last word on this brouhaha be Sefton’s; I anticipate having plenty more to say myself shortly, perhaps enough to break it out into a new post.

I don’t think I need tell you the reaction this received from the casting couches to the faculty lounges to the Lido Deck of The Kristol Ship of Fools, but my reaction is “fuckin’ A.” Amazing how despite being painted as irredeemably racist, sexist, bigoted, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobic, oppressive to non-whites and illegitimately founded, millions of people from all over the world (and possibly the M-79 star system) risk their lives, their children’s lives and other children’s lives to get here. Why is that Kaepernick? Why is that Rapinoe? Shouldn’t you and your ilk be doing everything you possibly can to dissuade people from coming here? No, of course not, because you and everyone like you lack even two brain cells to rub together to ignite even a spark of a clue as to what the reality is. Many people see the miracle that is this nation from the misery and squalor of the third world shit-holes they seek to escape, while far too many others sadly are being enticed here as a means to overwhelm and collapse us from within, while filling up the voter rolls of the Democrat Party and depressing the wages and even displacing the American worker so the Koch/CoC whores can squeeze one last penny out of the strained cloaca of the golden goose before it disappears in a bloody mass of feathers and fat.

From a tactical standpoint, this is once again Trump being brilliant. He has forced the Democrat-Left Media Complex to choose sides, and by defending Nancy Palsi from being labeled as a racist, he’s put her in the uncomfortable position of having to agree with him in order to defend herself from the charge. No doubt her enemies are going to have a field day with that while spewing even more insanity to turn off even more voters.

Fuckin’ A, buddy, right down the line. Really, y’all, a “blunder of epic proportions”? Only for the sinking Cruise Ship Cuck crew, too staid, dainty, and clueless even now to bother noticing the water slopping over the gunwales—much less save themselves by grabbing a bucket and bailing.

No d’uh!

Why, I’m shocked, I tell you. Shocked.

On a Wednesday morning in late May, emissaries of two of the strongest political voices on climate change convened at a coffee shop a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol. Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), was there to meet Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D), who is running for president almost exclusively on a platform of combating global warming. A newly released plank of Inslee’s climate change agenda had caught the attention of Chakrabarti and his boss, who had tweeted that Inslee’s “climate plan is the most serious + comprehensive one to address our crisis in the 2020 field.” Pleased by the positive reception from the demanding Green New Deal wing of the climate struggle, Ricketts had set up this meeting with Chakrabarti to establish a personal connection and share approaches to climate advocacy.

Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

“Yeah,” said Ricketts. Then he said: “No.” Then he said: “I think it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s dual. It is both rising to the challenge that is existential around climate and it is building an economy that contains more prosperity. More sustainability in that prosperity — and more broadly shared prosperity, equitability and justice throughout.”

Contra my sarcasm above, none of that should come as any surprise to anyone, of course. No, the actual surprise is here:

Chakrabarti liked the answer. “The thing I think you guys are doing that’s so incredible is … you guys are actually figuring out how to do it and make it work, the comprehensive plan where it all fits together,” he said. “I’d love to get into a situation where everyone’s trying to just outdo each other.” But Chakrabarti couldn’t help adding: “I’ll be honest, my view is I still think you guys aren’t going big enough.

Ummm…whaaaat? SRSLY?!? Let’s see: complete federal takeover and supervision of the economy. Fossil fuels banned; cars, airplanes, trains, ships, the whole internal-combustion megilla, gone. No more steaks, no more burgers, no more beef, because no more “farting cows” (no, really). “Free” college for everybody. Every building in America “retrofitted”—ie, gutted and/or demolished, then rebuilt—to use outdated, unreliable “green” energy. No nuclear power, natural gas, or coal. Uncountable trillions of dollars thrown down the environmentalist-whacko toilet. Government to provide every American with “healthy food” (presumably vegan), a house, a job, and a guaranteed salary “for all unable or unwilling to work.”

All that—a truly mind-boggling government intrusion into EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of American life, paid for by “massive” taxation—and this loon gripes that they aren’t “going big enough”?

My God. I have not the least doubt that he is one hundred percent serious about all that, too. I’d ask how just how “big” he’d like to go, but I tremble at the answer he’d give.

Turning chicken shit into chicken salad…that still tastes like shit

Wnna know why the Democrat Socialists punch far above their actual weight, and end up winning far more battles than they of right ought to? Two reasons: 1) they’re shameless, and 2) they’re relentless. They simply cannot be rocked off of the offensive, disregarding any and all conceivable setbacks, embarrassments, failures, or outright catastrophes to keep driving the Eternal Agenda forward. Latest case in point: their favorite creepy-crawly pedophile, pimp, and financial benefactor.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday said that Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta should resign over a 2008 plea deal involving financier Jeffrey Epstein and that if he doesn’t, President Trump should fire him.

“I am calling on Secretary Acosta to resign,” Schumer said during a Senate floor speech. “It is now impossible for anyone to have confidence in Secretary Acosta’s ability to lead the Department of Labor. If he refuses to resign, President Trump should fire him.” 

Yeah, right. Because reasons, eh, Chuckles?

“Acosta chose to let him off easy. This is not acceptable. We cannot have as one of the leading appointed officials in America someone who has done this,” Schumer added of the plea deal received by Epstein.

Umm, well, not exactly, Chuckles. Not quite.

But now a mob has been loosed. What is striking about Acosta’s case is that he is being excoriated not for doing too much to defend a sex offender but too little to punish or convict — that is, he is being criticized not as a defense attorney, like Sullivan, Pattis, or Adams, but as a prosecutor. Just as defendants and their counsel must weigh their risks of conviction, so too must prosecutors assess the risks and costs of failing to meet that much higher burden of “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Epstein served jail time and probation and was compelled to register as a sex offender. Acosta has stated that “the plea deal’s results were ‘better’ than risking a trial, which he said had ‘a reduced likelihood of success.'”

Acosta weighed the evidence and the odds, choosing to make a deal that still put the pustulent Democrat-Socialist Epstein behind bars—which is far, far more than you can say for Bill “The Creep” Clinton, Chuck Schumer, or any other Democrat-Socialist alive. Details, from Acosta’s press conference earlier today:

“The Palm Beach State Attorney’s Office was ready to let Epstein walk free,” Acosta said. The Florida grand jury reviewed the evidence and recommended a single charge that included no jail time and no registering Epstein as a sex offender.

“Without [the U.S. Attorney Offices’] involvement, Epstein would have gotten away without charge. We believe that we proceeded appropriately,” Acosta said. “Based on the evidence, there was value to getting a guilty plea and having him registered.”

The U.S. Attorney’s Office intervention in the state process was incredibly rare. Acosta said he was determined to make Epstein go to jail, register as a sex offender, and provide restitution to the victims.

“The world need to be on notice that he was a sexual predator,” Acosta said. “Based on the evidence, there was value to getting a guilty plea and having him registered… He needed to go to jail. That was the focus.”

Acosta pressed the point that the case was ultimately under the jurisdiction of Florida, and “the work release was not what was bargained for,” Acosta said. “I fully thought he would be spending his time in jail.”

By the way, just guess who also signed off on the deal, as head of the FBI. Go on, guess. As for the Left’s near-reflexive sleazy, greasy attempt to use Epstein’s arrest to smear Trump as being every bit as tainted by his association with Epstein:

Perino asked Patterson about Trump’s remarks: “President Trump said earlier that he had a falling-out with Epstein about 15 years ago. Do you know what that was about?”

Patterson responded: “Well, I know that there were some complaints about Epstein at Mar-a-Lago and also I spoke to the head of the spa there. I said ‘did you ever meet Epstein?’ She said, ‘oh yes…he was inappropriate with some of the younger women there.’ She said she went to Trump and he threw him out of the club.”

At another point in the interview, Patterson said he “knows Trump didn’t know” about Epstein’s alleged criminal activity.

Investigative journalist Conchita Sarnoff told Fox News’ Shannon Bream on Monday night that when former President Bill Clinton traveled on Epstein’s private plane that there were “underage girls” on the plane and that he “many times” did not have his Secret Service detail with him.

Hmmm. The Creep slipping his SS leash to fly off to Orgy Island who even knows how many times, versus Trump getting wind of serious misconduct by a guy he barely knows and immediately 86’ing his ass? Why, JUST the same, not a whisper’s worth of difference between the two. Meanwhile, Clinton is squirming and wriggling and just generally doing what shitlibs do: lying his lying ass off.



And as always with The Creep, that’s merely the tip of the Iceberg O’ Lies. Elsewhere, King Cuck gets busy a-sucking and a-slurping in a True Conservative™ sploogefest.


Bottom line is as Hinderaker says: Epstein is Clinton’s problem, not Trump’s. Clinton’s, and plenty of other depraved Democrat Socialists as well.

Cherchez le Cerno update! Might this fat, juicy worm have a barbed hook hidden in it?

Author, journalist, and filmmaker Mike Cernovich told Breitbart News Daily on Tuesday that the establishment media only has an interest in the Jeffrey Epstein court battles in order to attack President Donald Trump.

Cernovich spoke with Breitbart News Daily host Alexander Marlow in the wake of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest on sex trafficking charges. The Gorilla Mindset author fought to unseal court documents relating to a civil lawsuit in 2017 eventually led to Epstein’s arrest.

Despite the widespread interest in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking crimes and who might be connected to them, the establishment media has spent more time attempting to link President Donald Trump to Epstein, without evidence, than to the actual sex trafficking case.

Cernovich contended that the media only has interest in the Epstein case as a means to attack Trump through his relationship with Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta. Acosta, as a then-Miami prosecutor in 2007, struck a deal with Epstein in which the billionaire would plead guilty to prostitution charges in exchange for dropping all other charges.

“The media only care about Epstein as a way to go after Trump because of the Alexander Acosta angle,” Cernovich said.

Cernovich added that “They are trying to create a conspiracy theory involving Donald Trump and Jeff Epstein despite no evidence that Trump ever flew to any island or partied with Epstein or did anything.”

Despite much of the media’s attack on Trump, Yahoo News reported that a lawyer representing a trio of Epstein accusers explained that Trump assisted authorities in building a civil lawsuit against Epstein.

Trump also banned Epstein from his Florida resort Mar-a-Lago because Epstein allegedly sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club.

Marlow noted that Breitbart News Economics Editor John Carney said that no one on Wall Street knows how Epstein made his money. The Breitbart News Daily host described Epstein as a “very shadowy” figure.

Cernovich suggested that Epstein might have run a blackmail scheme to make his billions of dollars.

Well, nobody can claim it’s all a completely outlandish idea, that’s for sure.

Arming up

All that “we have all the guns” braggadocio? Gonna need to rethink that one, I’m afraid.

Well, unfortunately I’m here to tell you that isn’t true: the hard left knows full well the role guns play in the political process, and they’re currently arming up and training.

I’ve been keeping tabs on this trend, and the other day I ran across a rather alarming piece in the New Republic…

Alarming it most certainly is, and I suggest you go read all of it. Given the Left’s long history of violence and oppression, nobody should be assuming that they’ll all just roll over and give up at the first sign of resistance this time around. Some of them are soft, pampered, callow youths, sure. But make no mistake: some of them are hard-core, serious, dedicated revolutionaries, true modern-day Bolsheviks who fully and firmly intend to see each and every freedom-loving American either in a gulag, or dead. Bill offers a sobering reminder that all this is hardly anything new:

This is something I’ve worried about for a very long time.

Most people today are too young to have any working knowledge/memory of the hard left of the 1960s, especially if they didn’t participate in that movement.

I’m old enough, and I did participate.

Here’s what I remember:

Slogans: Up against the wall, motherfuckers! Shoot the liberals first! Mao: Power comes out of the barrel of a gun!
When the Black Panthers become revolutionary darlings, they didn’t equip themselves with pamphlets, bullhorns, and papier mache puppets. They carried rifles, shotguns, and pistols.

So, where are the guys in this article likely getting their knowledge, information, and training in the fine art of bearing arms?

From Uncle Sam, of course.

Clueless lefty pussies assume that if you join the military, you are a fascist conservative. But even a moment’s though will tell you that any large group – the US military is a very large group – will not be perfectly homogeneous. And if you are a budding revolutionary, why wouldn’t you spend a couple of years on Uncle’s dime learning to be an effective, dangerous revolutionary?

Don’t kid yourself. More than a few 18 year olds have done exactly that. (We all know that 18 year olds are all very, very conservative, right?)

A few years back, I remember reports that gangbangers were joining the military for exactly that purpose.  The reports were soft-pedaled and eventually faded away, but it seemed perfectly logical to me.  I mean, if you want go  be trained by experts in the fine art of armed urban warfare, get your training legally, and have it paid for by the military you expect to have to fight, how else would you do it?

Our side doesn’t have all of the guns, or all of the knowledge. The left is, I would suspect, still, relatively speaking, extremely weak in terms of all out armed civil war. But it is not helpless, and people who do make that assumption are both ignorant and stupid.

And when the bill comes due, the price tag on such assumptions is damned steep. Before our first Civil War, most people both North and South believed it would take but one hard skirmish to send the opposition packing, thereby securing an easy, relatively bloodless victory for themselves. Instead, they found themselves mired in a desperate, five-year-long calamity, one of the bloodiest, most destructive conflicts in history. Their blithe assumptions of a cakewalk are now generally derided as the purblind foolishness they always were.

But all too many of us today are inexplicably disregarding our own history to walk the primrose path all over again. It’s my belief that, as horrific a cataclysm as Civil War v1.0 was, Civil War v2.0 will be even more nightmarish, and will drag on for far longer, too. It is probably unavoidable by now; it might even be considered necessary, the only means left to us of resolving the otherwise irreconcilable conflict between totaliarian collectivism and those who just want to be left alone to live as freely as they possibly may.

Nonetheless, it remains a truly awful prospect—all of us will lose much, and probably most will lose absolutely everything. Entire regions could well be thrown back into a pre-Industrial Revolution type of lifestyle. The comfort and convenience every American has come to regard as his birthright, just the natural order of things, will be gone forever, replaced by a state of nature more akin to Hobbes’s brutal vision than, say, Hugh Hefner’s. It is a thing to be contemplated not with eagerness and anticipation, but with dread.

Justice: served, piping hot

Remember what I always say about the wheels grinding slow, but surpassing fine?

Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy, politically connected Florida financier, was arrested in New York on Saturday evening on sex trafficking charges, sources tell NBC 4 New York.

A law enforcement official said Epstein would be charged with trafficking and conspiracy to traffic minors for sex.

“Jeffrey Epstein has evaded justice for too long – this child rapist belongs in prison and should not be allowed to post bail and hurt more girls,” said Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Oversight Subcommittee.

A 2008 deal ended a federal investigation that could have landed Epstein, now 66, in prison for life. Instead, he was allowed to plead guilty to lesser state charges that resulted in a 13-month jail sentence and required financial settlements to dozens of his victims. He also had to register as a sex offender.

Insty says Epstein might well be facing Arkancide: “HE HAS DIRT ON BILL CLINTON; WHAT’S HIS LIFE EXPECTANCY NOW?” Real justice—TRUE justice—would demand the answer to that question be: very short. Sadly, though, I doubt he’ll get anything like what he deserves. Nor will his wealthy and powerful clients, I’m afraid. But if Epstein ends up doing any time at all in a non-country-club prison, he’s going to find out what the pen-name “Short Eyes” means…and what the price tag for wearing it is.

Learn to code, bitches!

I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this article.

The far-left fake news outlet CNN came in 15th place in primetime during the previous quarter and lost nearly 20 percent of its already pathetic viewership.

…Obviously, what the above numbers prove is that CNNLOL is not the victim of a downturn in the overall news cycle but rather a victim of its own horribleness, of Suicide By Fake News and Hate.

In all of cable TV during primetime, FOX was number one, MSNBC number two, and CNNLOL was number…. 15.

In the all-important (for advertiser rates) 25-54 age demo during primetime hours, FOX averaged 373,000 viewers, MSNBC 252,000, and CNNLOL just 188,000.

Compared to this same quarter last year, in the age demo, FOX is down 21 percent and MSNBC 27 percent, but CNNLOL again managed to humiliate itself with an incredible 37 percent crash of young primetime viewers.

With only two other cable news outlets as competition, not a single CNNLOL program ranked in the top 20.

There’s a reason why more Democrats tune into MSNBC and probably even Fox News.

CNN is an unreliable and dishonest hate network obsessed with working out its psychosis against Trump and his supporters by going so far as to condone and encourage violence against them.

Okay, it’s possible I may not have enjoyed reading this quite as much as Nolte obviously did writing it.

Gibson has his say

No, I ain’t talking guitars now, but bakeries.

A business is only as strong as its reputation.

For more than 130 years, this principle served my family well. We own and operate Gibson’s Bakery in the City of Oberlin, Ohio — home to Oberlin College. Over that time, we have worked hard to build a reputation on our homemade baked goods, candy and ice cream, and on our commitment to our community.

Started by my great grandfather in 1885, the bakery has always been a source of pride for our family. For decades I’ve worked alongside my father, Allyn W. Gibson, known around Oberlin as “Grandpa Gibson.” At 90, he still comes to work nearly every day, where I’m joined by my son, and my 11-year-old grandson on the weekends.

On Nov. 9, 2016, a student attempted to shoplift two bottles of wine from our store. Unfortunately, theft is all too common at Gibson’s Bakery. Like many small businesses in Oberlin, our employees have caught plenty of shoplifters over the years — many of them students.

Police arrested the student. But the next day, hundreds of people gathered in protest. From bullhorns they called for a boycott. The sidewalk and park across the street from our store were filled with protesters holding signs labeling us racists and white supremacists. The arrest, they said, was the result of racial profiling. The narrative was set and there was no combating it.

Despite the lack of any evidence, our family was accused of a long history of racism and discrimination. Oberlin College officials ordered the suspension of the more than 100-year business relationship with our bakery, and our customers dwindled. We were officially on trial — not in a courtroom, but in the court of public opinion. And we were losing.

As time went on, the truth began to emerge. The shoplifter confessed to his crime and said the arrest wasn’t racially motivated. But Oberlin College refused to help set the record straight by issuing a public statement that our family is not racist and does not have a history of racial profiling or discrimination.

The damage had been done. And the truth seemed irrelevant. In a small city like Oberlin, having the largest business and employer against you is more than enough to seal your fate.

Running out of options, we decided to pursue a lawsuit against Oberlin College. Two regional law firms agreed to take our case.

As the extended legal battle dragged on, many asked why I didn’t just quit. Wouldn’t it be easier to close up shop and move on?

In the end, the words of my father inspired me to continue the fight. He said, “In my life, I’ve done everything I could to treat all people with dignity and respect. And now, nearing the end of my life, I’m going to die being labeled as a racist.”

Gibson closes with the hope that Oberlin’s Little Hitlers will learn something from this, take stock, and abandon the evil of SJW ideology. But as Bill Jacobson says, that hope is already being proven vain:

There is no evidence that Oberlin is ready to “take stock and correct course,” as Editorial Board of the Pittburgh Post-Gazette suggested it do to avoid going the way of Antioch College. As we have written, Oberlin College is doubling and tripling down on portraying itself as the victim, blaming as it has in past incidents, the media.

Then the full weight of the judgment should be rammed right down their throats until they choke to death on it. And if being forced to pay just restitution to the innocent people whose lives they intentionally ruined closes Oberlin college for good, well, tough shit. Full stop, end of story, no tears shed, world’s smallest violin.

Under the bus with you!

No longer useful, no longer needed, no longer wanted. Sorry, HILLARY!™, but it would seem you’re past your sell-by date.

The U.S. State Department announced Monday that it found 23 “violations” and seven “infractions” in its review of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct official business. The department also found several individuals culpable in “multiple security incidents,” associated with the scandal.

The department’s findings came in an official letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R–Iowa), who is in charge of congressional oversight in the department’s security review regarding the mishandling of classified information related to Clinton’s emails.

The revelations from the State Department follow a January inquiry from Grassley who sought information related to the security incidents and officials involved with Clinton’s private email server during her time as secretary of state.

That would be Her Herness’s wide-open, halfassed, and completely illegal private server.

The Federal Records Act requires that all communication in certain branches of government be recorded on government servers, and it forbids the use of a personal email account for government business, unless those emails are then copied and archived. However, there are a lot of technicalities involved, and there is evidence that other government officials had violated the act. As Alex Howard wrote for the Sunlight Foundation, there is also evidence that Clinton tried to control the discoverability of the emails under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which could set a precedent for limiting public access to government records. It is also believed that Clinton deleted 31,000 emails deemed personal in nature before turning the emails over to the State Department.

Y’know: the wide-open, halfassed, and completely illegal server Slimey Jim Comey conveniently gave her a pass on, using the unprecedented, made-up, and patently absurd “no intent” dodge.

Director Comey recommended against prosecution of the law violations he clearly found on the ground that there was no intent to harm the United States. In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute, inserting an intent element that Congress did not require….The lack of intent to harm our country is irrelevant. People never intend the bad things that happen due to gross negligence.

But there’s another problem. Comey says that Hillary did not evidence “intentional and willful mishandling of classified information” or “vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct” or “efforts to obstruct justice.”

All three were present here.

Y’know: the wide-open, halfassed, and completely illegal server Obama sent and received emails to and from using a fake name, only to deny all knowledge of its existence later.

As I explained in February, when it emerged that the White House was refusing to disclose at least 22 communications Obama had exchanged with then-secretary Clinton over the latter’s private e-mail account, we knew that Obama had knowingly engaged in the same misconduct that was the focus of the Clinton probe: the reckless mishandling of classified information.

To be sure, he did so on a smaller scale. Clinton’s recklessness was systematic: She intentionally set up a non-secure, non-government communications framework, making it inevitable that classified information would be mishandled, and that federal record-keeping laws would be flouted. Obama’s recklessness, at least as far as we know, was confined to communications with Clinton — although the revelation that the man presiding over the “most transparent administration in history” set up a pseudonym to conceal his communications obviously suggests that his recklessness may have been more widespread.

Still, the difference in scale is not a difference in kind. In terms of the federal laws that criminalize mishandling of classified information, Obama not only engaged in the same type of misconduct Clinton did; he engaged in it with Clinton. It would not have been possible for the Justice Department to prosecute Clinton for her offense without its becoming painfully apparent that 1) Obama, too, had done everything necessary to commit a violation of federal law, and 2) the communications between Obama and Clinton were highly relevant evidence.

YOU know, that server. “Not one single hint of scandal or a lie“? Riiiiight. Pull the other one, Gropey Joe. It has a bell on it.

No, HILLARY!™ still won’t be going to prison. Neither will Obama. But truth will out nonetheless; the walls are closing in on them, even if the satisfaction of seeing real justice done will be denied us. History will regard these bumbling, shambolic scoundrels unkindly at best: as the wholly corrupt, dishonest, incompetent hacks they are. Regrettably, that’s gonna have to be enough.

Well, that, and things like this:



Bottoms up, Hils. You’ll NEVER be president.

Update! WHO’S guilty of obstruction of justice again, now?

The subject again was raised during last week’s interview between the president and ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos. “She deleted 33,000 emails from—sent by the United States Congress,” Trump reminded the former Clinton confidante in the Oval Office. “They gave a subpoena to Hillary Clinton for 33,000 emails. After the subpoena was gotten, she deleted them. That’s called obstruction.” Stephanopoulos attempted to brush off the accusations against the wife of his one-time boss by insisting the matter already had “been investigated.”

Trump, however, is correct; Clinton’s missing emails were evidence at the time in both a congressional investigation into the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack and several Freedom of Information Act lawsuits. Her family’s nonprofit, the Clinton Foundation, was under increasing scrutiny from both the FBI and Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group. The State Department’s inspector general in 2014 asked four previous secretaries of state—including Clinton—for any emails sent from a private account during their tenure in order to comply with the Federal Records Act.

But Clinton, claiming the emails were of a personal nature, including dish about yoga classes and her daughter’s wedding, authorized the permanent removal of tens of thousands of pages of potential evidence and federal records. To make sure that “even God can’t read them,” as former Representative Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) mocked in August 2016, Clinton’s aides installed a special software program that blocked the retrieval of the documents. FBI investigators failed to locate Clinton’s 13 mobile devices and two iPads that might have contained the missing correspondence; her aides admitted to “breaking [her old BlackBerries] in half or hitting them with a hammer.”

While her mishandling of classified information remains the biggest injustice of the Clinton email scandal, the willful destruction of more than half of the 60,000 emails archived on her private, illicit server also remains an overlooked crime for which no one has been held accountable.

Anyone who “knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation,” is guilty of obstruction of justice, an offense punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Ain’t gonna happen, more’s the pity. But I’d settle for watching her sweat the possibility as she testifies before Congress, Barr, a jury, or all of the above.

To date, according to Judicial Watch—the only entity still interested in pursuing the deleted files—the FBI only has recovered about 5,000 of the 33,000 emails that Team Clinton obliterated from cyberspace.
And although Judicial Watch is scoring wins in court to slowly expose the corruption and, yes, obstruction of justice related to Clinton’s email server, news organizations continue to ignore the subject for the same reasons the media continue to ignore or, worse, justify FISA-gate: Both scandals ultimately lead to Barack Obama.

While Democrats and their accomplices in the media daily shriek that Trump is upending democratic norms and the rule of law, each day offers a new reminder of how the previous administration trashed every legal, political and administrative boundary that once guided fair play. Trump should keep raising this galling contradiction—and force his eventual Democratic presidential opponent to answer for it.

Say, Hils, maybe you should ask Obama if he’d like a tug off your bottle of Old Popskull. He could probably use a stiff belt right about now himself.

The ground has shifted, no further notice

As promised, more defiance from one of Kurt’s more enjoyable pieces.

Take this idiocy about the newly discovered TREASONOUS TREACHERY OF TREASON that is taking oppo from grimy foreigners. Trump said (and I paraphrase), “Sure, I guess if some alien offered me dirt on whichever groper, fake Cherokee, Mad magazine mascot or skateboarding furry the Democrats nominate I’d listen,” and the lib elite lifted off into the highest of dudgeons.

“This is his worst treason since his last worst treason!” they thundered. “This is even more treasonous than when The Bad Orange Man called us ‘traitors’ for our treachery after we called him ‘traitor’ for two years!” 

They got really, really upset. Fake upset, of course, but they committed to the bit and kept straight faces. And you know that Trump pulled the pin on that hand grenade of truth on purpose in order to make the dummies explode just like they did. 

You have to wonder if the garbage elite really thinks their brand of blatant hypocrisy disguised as moral outrage works, or if this is just a reflexive response to a president who not only sees them for the useless slugs they are, but says so.

Oh, I’m quite sure it’s both. But why wouldn’t they expect it to work? It always has before, and there are still plenty enough outdated, vintage Republicans perfectly willing to bend the knee, tug the forelock, and apologize for their outrageous incivility rattling around the old DC digs to convince them that, after this Brief Unpleasantness, things will slide comfortably back into the same old greasy grooves.

Still, do any of them truly think that we Normals will listen to them sounding off about the perfidy of perhaps considering the possibility of maybe accepting dirt on their freak show candidates from outsiders and not recall that Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit famously did just that with the pee-pee dossier, or that Adam Schiff got punked by a couple of Russian Howard Stern wannabeskis offering him pics of the POTUS au natural?

When Staggers O’Cankles does it, it’s cool? When Congressman Leaky does it, it’s fine? Yet when Trump says he might do exactly what they did, it’s the greatest betrayal of our Values, our Constitution and our Democracy since his last greatest betrayal of our Values, our Constitution and our Democracy, which happened last week?

They have to hope we will. At this point, it’s all they have left.

Who actually still cares about this nonsense? It can’t be aimed at converting us. We know they think we’re dumb, but are they so stupid, so utterly unable to correctly and objectively assess their opponents (us), that they really believe they can Ted Lieu on our legs and tell us it’s raining, and that we’ll just nod and join in their never-ending chant of “Orange Man Bad?”

I don’t they hope to convert us. I think they hope to cow us—to intimidate us, to shut us down. Like I said, it’s worked quite nicely for them until now. Anyone looking for reasons why Trump unhinges them so completely will find plenty of them. But really, you could stop right there, with just the one.

To the extent our modern elite had retained any residual credibility from back in the distant past when our elite wasn’t totally corrupt and incompetent, that goodwill has been squandered in the wake of its war to crush Trump, which is actually a war to crush us and restore the elite’s unchallenged power. 

Annnnd BINGO. Right there it is.

Gotta love it

I especially like the subhed here: “Barr’s bloodhounds are sniffing up Langley’s skirts.” His lips. God’s ears.

Last Wednesday the intelligence community launched its first attack on Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into its illegal acts and abuses of power during the 2016 election. In a New York Times article entitled “Justice Department Seeks to Question CIA in its Own Russia Investigation,” the IC makes clear its fear of the results of Barr’s investigation of their spy operation on candidate Trump in 2016 that continued through his early presidency.

John Durham, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, is running the investigation under Barr’s direction. From the Times report, we can easily deduce the fact that those who ran the spy op — including CIA Director Gina Haspel — are running scared from the Durham investigation.

The reason the CIA’s “analytical work” is being subjected to a federal prosecutor’s scrutiny is that there is a lot of evidence of criminal conduct by the CIA and FBI. That’s one of the fundamental differences between the Barr/Durham investigation and the Mueller investigation into the imaginary conspiracy between candidate Trump and his campaign and the Russians.

Mueller & Co. had no evidence that a crime had been committed before their investigation began. (Or after, for that matter.) The Mueller investigation was, as I’ve noted elsewhere, consistent with the method used by Stalin’s secret police chief Lavrenti Beria: show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.

In the Barr/Durham investigation, it’s pretty damned clear that in their abuse of power under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act the FBI, and possibly the CIA, made false statements to the FISA court, under oath, to justify surveillance warrants on Carter Page and others. Those false statements — sworn affidavits in support of the FISA warrants — are, at least, violations of 18 U.S. Code Section 1001 which bars such false statements. Those are real crimes, not imaginary ones. Whatever other crimes are discovered while investigating them will come out as well.

Yet another one you folks are going to want to savor every last word of.

Pick pointless squabbles with other commenters, fling provocative personal insults, issue threats, or annoy the host (me) and...you won't.

Should you find yourself sanctioned after running afoul of the CF comments policy as stated and feel you have been wronged, please download and complete the Butthurt Report form below in quadruplicate; retain one copy for your personal records and send the others to the email address posted in the right sidebar. Please refrain from whining, sniveling, and/or bursting into tears and waving your chubby fists around in frustrated rage, lest you suffer an aneurysm or stroke unnecessarily. Your completed form will be reviewed and your complaint addressed whenever management feels like getting around to it. Thank you.
