Washington Pos: “The Russians Fooled Comey”

It’s all the fault of those darned Russians. If it weren’t for them Hillary Clinton would be President. And James Comey would still head the FBI.

“How a dubious Russian document influenced the FBI’s handling of the Clinton probe”

A secret document that officials say played a key role in then-FBI Director James B. Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation has long been viewed within the FBI as unreliable and possibly a fake, according to people familiar with its contents.

In the midst of the 2016 presidential primary season, the FBI received what was described as a Russian intelligence document claiming a tacit understanding between the Clinton campaign and the Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server.

[…]

Current and former officials have said that Comey relied on the document in making his July decision to announce on his own, without Justice Department involvement, that the investigation was over. That public announcement — in which he criticized Clinton and made extensive comments about the evidence — set in motion a chain of other FBI moves that Democrats now say helped Trump win the presidential election.”

Even If They Throw Trump Out It Won’t Put Hillary In

Plan B: Call Trump unfit and throw him out using the 25th Amendment. Ross Douthat, writing in the New York Times, says it is the answer.
“The 25th Amendment Solution for Removing Trump”

One does not need to be a Marvel superhero or Nietzschean Übermensch to rise to this responsibility. But one needs some basic attributes: a reasonable level of intellectual curiosity, a certain seriousness of purpose, a basic level of managerial competence, a decent attention span, a functional moral compass, a measure of restraint and self-control. And if a president is deficient in one or more of them, you can be sure it will be exposed.

Trump is seemingly deficient in them all.

[…]

It is a child who blurts out classified information in order to impress distinguished visitors. It is a child who asks the head of the F.B.I. why the rules cannot be suspended for his friend and ally. It is a child who does not understand the obvious consequences of his more vindictive actions — like firing the very same man whom you had asked to potentially obstruct justice on your say-so.

A child cannot be president. I love my children; they cannot have the nuclear codes.”

Charlie Daniels’ Open Letter to Chuck Schumer: “You’ve Opened Pandora’s Box”

It appears in CNS News. This is just an excerpt but Daniels’ letter is powerful.

Charlie Daniels

Sen. Schumer, will you do me and America a favor? Will you lay your hand on a Holy Bible and tell America that you believe in your heart that Donald Trump has actually colluded with Vladimir Putin and the Russian government to the detriment of the United States of America?

You see, sir, everything you’ve come up with so far, and you’ve been at it since well before the election, has been superficial. And I believe that anything your special counsel will come up with will also be superficial, guilt by association, the fires of triviality fanned and proliferated by a tilted, hate-filled media and super partisan politicians.

Sen. Schumer, what goes around truly does come around, and if, or should I say when, this pendulum starts swinging back the other way, do you realize that Mr. Mueller could actually find a lot more dirt on prominent Democrats than they do Trump and his staff?

You have opened Pandora’s Box, sir, and basically thrown away the lid.”

“Help Make June 19 National Millennials Day”

A bunch of un-self-aware young people say they are tired of being portrayed as narcissists so they are demanding a celebration of ‘Them’. How un-self-aware can you get?

“National Millennials Day is a way to show the world the truth about Millennials.”

With National Millennials Day, we want to turn the stereotypes inside-out. To show that we’re more Generation We than Generation Me. To transform ideals into actions. To inspire hope for the future. To celebrate the most open-minded, connected, innovative, purpose-driven generation on the planet: Millennials.”

You Know This Kind Of Makes Sense

Now scientists are saying the cradle of mankind was the Mediterranean sea rather than the sands of Africa. That sea has always been a rich source of food and the rivers that fill it were good farming areas.

“Europe was the birthplace of mankind, not Africa, scientists find”

The history of human evolution has been rewritten after scientists discovered that Europe was the birthplace of mankind, not Africa.

Currently, most experts believe that our human lineage split from apes around seven million years ago in central Africa, where hominids remained for the next five million years before venturing further afield.

But two fossils of an ape-like creature which had human-like teeth have been found in Bulgaria and Greece, dating to 7.2 million years ago.”

Martha Raddatz Has a Great ‘Worry Face’

In this video she’s worrying that people will be mad at Muslims after the bombing in Manchester.

Listen, folks, we need to worry about real threats. We need to prepare for terror and other attacks against civilians. Especially children. We need to train our police to investigate attacks completely and to keep proper records when they do.

People like Raddatz and Steponallofus prefer to worry about potential reactions to attacks. They would rather the records show that it was not Muslims who did the deeds. They would rather protect the Islamists and let the children die.

John Brennan Is Talking To Congress But Is He Telling The Truth?

This morning there are a lot of reports about the Brennan testimony. For instance:
“John Brennan Completely Contradicts FBI Director James Comey on Congressional Notification…”

The story goes like this:

Today former CIA Director John Brennan testified to congress on the Russian counter-intelligence operation which began in July 2016. Today, John Brennan completely contradicted the March 20th, 2017, testimony of former FBI Director James Comey.

[…]

On March 20th FBI Director James Comey -together with NSA head Admiral Mike Rogers- testified to congress specifically about this notification…

[…]

“Again, in consultation with the White House, I PERSONALLY briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in the election to congressional leadership; specifically: Senators Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr; and to representatives Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff between 11th August and 6th September [2016], I provided the same briefing to each of the gang of eight members.”

Then there is this. It was not collusion between Trump and Putin that got Russia involved in the election:

“John Brennan: Hostility between Putin, Clintons drove Russia’s actions”

We don’t know if Brennan is telling the truth but the Democrats seem to believe him.

“Key Democratic Officials Now Warning Base Not to Expect Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion”

But on Wednesday night, Morell appeared at an intelligence community forum to “cast doubt” on “allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.” “On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire at all,” he said, adding, “There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”

Obama’s former CIA chief also cast serious doubt on the credibility of the infamous, explosive “dossier” originally published by BuzzFeed, saying that its author, Christopher Steele, paid intermediaries to talk to the sources for it. The dossier, he said, “doesn’t take you anywhere, I don’t think.”

Homely Chelsea Resurrects The Term ‘Jingoism’

According to the Merriam West Dictionary site Jingoism means:

“extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy”

I think though that we also have to recognize particularly at this moment that sexism is not an opinion, Islamophobia is not an opinion, racism is not an opinion, homophobia is not an opinion, jingoism is not an opinion.”

“So I think that we, in our posture of listening, also have to get comfortable with standing up and speaking out,” Chelsea Clinton concluded.”

Somehow it is important to leftists to separate what they don’t like from ‘Opinions’. That means they are allowed to have ‘Opinions’ but you and I are not – because they say so. Funny how that works.

This little clip is sold as an example of the small Hillary bashing President Trump. I suppose that’s true but she also includes every other conservative, libertarian, and Democrat that she disagrees with. This is the shotgun approach – it is how you throw out a bunch of accusations with nothing but your opinion to back you up.

Aside: If I were Chelsea Clinton I would not like being called, “Disgruntled”.

Democrats: “OK, Here’s The Plan…”

“Here’s How Hillary Clinton Will Become President In 2017”

Donald Trump’s impeachment is imminent, and the majority of his cabinet is implicated in his treason. Hillary Clinton was supposed to be our president in 2017. It was her turn. She won the popular vote, but lost the rigged election because of Russia. Fortunately, there’s a good chance that Hillary will be sworn in as president before the end of the year.”

After that opening paragraph at the Washington Free Beacon there is a list of 36 things that must happen to put Clinton in the Oval office. A few:

1. House Judiciary Committee approves articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.
2. House of Representatives votes to impeach the president. (Vote succeeds on second attempt, after initial vote is derailed by House Freedom Caucus demands of $10 billion in spending cuts for every article of impeachment.)
3. Secret Senate Subcommittee on Water Safety, Space Militarization and High Treason (SSSWSSMHT) convenes at the top of the Washington Monument to review findings of the FBI investigation.
4. Paul Ryan doesn’t show up to his 6 a.m. P90X class. Search parties deployed.

hmm.

Time Magazine Has Certainly Changed

There was a time when Time, the weekly news magazine, was everywhere. Always a staple in waiting rooms, the stories just long enough to get you through a latte. But the magazine has fallen on hard times because of low readership. They have begun publishing more and more radical stuff. This is a cause vs. effect relationship but at this late date it’s hard to tell what =was the cause and what was the effect.

Today they tell us how to become a #resist-er. The article is actually an ad for Harvard university’s ‘Resistance school.

“A Step-By-Step Guide for Building the Resistance”

The raised fist is a common communist icon

At Harvard, progressive graduate students built Resistance School, a free training program for communities seeking to organize around issues and elections they care about. In April, the organization live-streamed its first four sessions on key skills required to take collective action. While we found there is no single way to resist, we learned some powerful lessons on the work ahead.”

The NAACP Has Been Around So Long They Still Refer To Themselves As ‘Colored People’

Even so, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has decided that they are not getting the attention that groups like Black Lives Matter are getting. So, in an effort to be more like BLM they have fired their leader, Cornell William Brooks because he isn’t radical enough.
“Tired of competing for attention with groups like Black Lives Matter, the NAACP is looking to reinvent itself.”

Outgoing NAACP President Brooks

The national board of the NAACP voted Friday to dismiss the organization’s president, the Rev. Cornell William Brooks, just three years after putting Brooks in charge of the nation’s largest and perhaps best-known civil rights organization.

NAACP Board Chairman Leon Russell said the change is necessary to better position the organization to combat the onslaught of civil rights assaults and rollbacks the board expects under President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and to prepare the organization to shape the country in the next century.”

Even Veteran News Readers Get No Respect From CNN

Bob Scheiffer has been reading the news on television since he reported on Muhammad’s marriage to a six year-old. Even so, if he voices an opinion it is subject to the correction of a fledgling CNN reporter.

Don’t get me wrong. Scheiffer has made his bones. He has embraced leftist talking points for a long time. But here we see him making a mistake – and being called on it – by CNN’s John Berman. Even historically politically correct followers of the cult of Barack Obama Clinton are not immune from being corrected – brought back onto the reservation if you will.

Confirmed: California Public Education Ends At Seventh Grade

Really. It must be said that California’s universities are still separating students from hundreds of millions of dollars. No Question about that. But the level of education is stuck at the seventh grade level. Consider these images from the CA universities under the leadership of Janet Napolitano:

U.C. Berkeley


U.C. Davis

UCLA

And where do these kids get these crazy ideas? Why from their leaders, of course. The leaders of California’s Democrat party has a message for Republicans, conservatives, and GOP leaders:

“Democratic battle cry in California: ‘F–k Donald Trump'”

Yep. There is no room for discussion. The left in California has gone full seventh-grade:

Fuck Donald Trump,” was the Democratic battle cry made over the weekend from outgoing California Democratic Party chairman John Burton.

Burton made the remark in initiating this year’s California Democratic Convention in Sacramento, where the theme appeared to be resisting the current administration in Washington.

Burton extended a middle finger while making the remark to a cheering crowd, the Associated Press reported.”

The ‘Rules Of Engagement’ Have Been Changed

This is the kind of thing we expected with General Mattis as Secretary of Defense.

Oh, the wailing from the ‘Lead from behind’ Obama supporters.

“Pentagon plans to ‘annihilate’ IS fighters”

Washington (AFP) – President Donald Trump has instructed the Pentagon to “annihilate” the Islamic State group in Syria in a bid to prevent escaped foreign fighters from returning home, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Friday.

The move to encircle then kill as many jihadists in place as possible — rather than letting them exit a city and targeting them as they flee — reflects an increased urgency to stop battle-hardened jihadists bringing their military expertise and ideology back to European capitals and other areas.

The president has “directed a tactical shift from shoving ISIS out of safe locations in an attrition fight to surrounding the enemy in their strongholds so we can annihilate ISIS,” Mattis said, using an acronym for IS.”

More Diversity From Harvard

I’d say strike Harvard from your list of good schools.

“Harvard senior from Ga. submits rap album as thesis, gets an A”

Obasi Shaw

While other Harvard University students were writing papers for their senior theses, Obasi Shaw was busy rapping his.

Shaw is the first student in Harvard’s history to submit a rap album as a senior thesis in the English Department, the university said. The album, called “Liminal Minds,” has earned the equivalent of an A-minus grade, good enough to guarantee that Shaw will graduate with honors next week.

Count Shaw among those most surprised by the success.

“I never thought it would be accepted by Harvard,” said Shaw, a 20-year-old from Stone Mountain, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. “I didn’t think they would respect rap as an art form enough for me to do it.”

For those of you in Rio Linda this story is about ‘Rap’ music. When the writer said Shaw was ‘Busy rapping his thesis’ they didn’t mean gift wrapping.

Would Requiring Picture ID To Vote Have Prevented This? Probably Not

Seven million duplicates in slightly more than half the states.

“More Than 7 Million Voter Registrations Are Duplicated in Multiple States”

The newest data is from crosschecks of voter registrations across 28 states that participate in the program. At least 7.2 million registrations appeared in two states at once, according to the data.

Georgia (660,708), North Carolina (561,811), and Illinois (542,065) lead the 28 states studied in potential duplicated voter registrations across state lines.

The study shows that more than 916,000 people appear to be registered multiple times within their state of residence. North Carolina accounts for 90 percent of potential intrastate duplicates.

[…]

President Trump signed an executive order on May 11 establishing a commission to investigate voter fraud in the United States that will be led by Vice President Mike Pence and Kobach.

The commission, which will study “vulnerabilities” in the voting system and look at voter suppression and fraud in terms of registration and actual voting, will meet for the first time this summer and present its findings in 2018.”
