Why Was Comey Fired?

Incompetence, among other reasons. Also using his positions for political purposes. An article at American Thinker reveals a lot. Below is a partial list of Comey’s ‘Errors’. How many do you remember?

Comey’s fitness report while heading the FBI is a compendium of incompetence, and dissembling, beyond his blockade-running interference for Hillary’s email felonies, and AG Loretta Lynch’s deliberately compromising encounter with Bill Clinton on the Phoenix airport tarmac:

The FBI ignored the Tsarnaev brothers before the Boston Marathon bombing.

The FBI ignored U.S. Army psychiatrist and jihadist Nidal Hasan before he murdered 31 people at Fort Hood.

The FBI ignored the San Bernardino terrorist killers Farook and Malik; then in an unforced fiasco bullied Apple for a needless unlocking key to the killers’ IPhone.

An FBI agent was actually following the Garland, Texas shooters without notifying local law enforcement that armed men were about to carry out a terrorist attack.

The FBI ignored Orlando nightclub massacre terrorist Omar Mateen, while under intermittent surveillance, whose lies to the FBI were known by the FBI interrogators.

The FBI has done zero investigation into who leaked classified info on Michael Flynn, nor the unmasking of more than a thousand private U.S. citizens, along with who spied on Trump and members of Congress.

The FBI has demurred in investigating the Clinton Foundation”

So Dems Found Who Was Communicating With Wikileaks And Killed Him?

Let that be a lesson to other staffers for the Democrat National Committee.

“Investigator: Murdered DNC Staffer Was Communicating with WikiLeaks Prior to Death”

Seth Rich

New information has come out regarding the mysterious death of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich almost a year ago. Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C., and although nothing was stolen from him, police have suggested the killing was a botched robbery. A private investigator is now claiming that police sources have told him that there is evidence on Rich’s laptop that shows he was emailing WikiLeaks prior to his death. The sources also say that they were told to “stand down” on investigating the crime.

The murder happened shortly before Wikileaks released emails that prompted the resignation of several Democrat leaders on the eve of the Democratic National Convention.”

From here

The investigators were told to, “Stand down”? Who told them that and why? That’s the same order that was given to rescue teams going to Benghazi.

But wait. There’s more:

From Fox5: “Family’s private investigator: There is evidence Seth Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior to death”

Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, suggests there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.

Now, questions have been raised on why D.C. police, the lead agency on this murder investigation for the past ten months, have insisted this was a robbery gone bad when there appears to be no evidence to suggest that.”

Here is a nice image from another source:

Julian Assange on Seth Rich:

Related: “IRS Officials Claim Lives in Danger if They Testify About Tea Party Bias Case”

Lois Lerner

Current and former IRS officials are asking not to publicly testify about the agency’s alleged bias against Tea Party and other conservative organizations, claiming they are in danger if they do so.

Former official Lois Lerner and Holly Paz both argued in recent filings under seal in the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati that the death threats and other harassment they have faced take precedence over the public’s right to hear their testimony on the case of IRS bias against conservative groups, USA Today reported.”

From here

Much of the media is taking the position that the IRS people are afraid of reprisals from the Right but we on the right don’t operate like that. It’s rare for a conservative to become violent. It is not rare, though, for a Democrat to become violent. The deaths of Seth Rich and other Democrats have cast a pall on Democrat whistle blowers. It has made them afraid. It is designed to do that.

Democrats Continue To Eat Each Other While Blaming Others

So they didn’t pay the little people but they gave the leaders big bonuses for losing the election. It sounds like the lawsuit has merit.

I will never understand how they continue to do stuff like this and still get young people to believe.

“DNC Faces Another Class Action Lawsuit After $1 Million in Bonuses Given Out”

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

The Democratic National Committee and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz are currently facing a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters in federal court for rigging the Democratic primaries in favor of Hillary Clinton. On May 12, CBS reported another class action lawsuit was filed against the DNC for stiffing dozens of field organizers all over the country for overtime work during the 2016 election while the DNC gave out $1 million in bonuses, including more than $300,000 to Democratic National Convention Host Committee Executive Director Kevin Washo. The lawsuit was filed by Justin Swidler of Cherry Hill, N.J. on behalf of 40 to 50 field organizers against the DNC, Pennsylvania state Democrats, and five other state Democratic Parties. “These workers were out there in a campaign that was promising $15 an hour minimum wage and expanding the overtime rights of workers,” Swidler told CBS. He added the lawsuit seeks “fair pay for fair work” and to hold the Democratic Party accountable to the ideals it markets itself with.”

Angela Merkel And The Power Of Surrender

If the people of Germany don’t step up to reverse Merkel’s idiocy we will soon see the end of Germany. She has embraced the Islamic ‘Refugees’ that are taking over her country.

What could she be thinking?

“Merkel: Germany Won’t Step Up Fight Against ISIS Even If NATO Does”

I want to state very clearly, that even if such a decision is made, it will not mean that any military activity that Germany currently carries out, for instance, AWACS surveillance, will be expanded or something like that,” Merkel emphatically declared. Germany only contributed approximately 150 troops to the anti-ISIS mission to train, advise, and assist forces according to an August 2016 Congressional Research Service report.”

And That Is How You Drain The Swamp

“Clapper: Trump is Assaulting American Institutions”

The complicit media is hauling out the same Obama people who repeatedly told us lies during the eight years of BHO. They are supporting their allegations of impropriety because they are all on the same team – the team that wants to take out President Trump.

This interview could be called a ‘Tapper Clapper caper’. It is easy to see that Tapper is trying to help Clapper form his comments.

Mr. Trump was elected by Americans to change the trajectory of the country. That requires a lot of things. One of those things is to eliminate the cancerous members of the government who have been there for a long time and are going to object to being kicked out. Clapper is one of those but he was in a high position under Obama and he misses the control.

In this clip he says that Trump is assaulting American Institutions – as though that were a bad thing. Of course it is to him.

Clapper is the one who told us that US intelligence does not collect surveil average Americans:

That was a lie and he had to ‘Clarify’.

Andrew McCarthy Asks A Good Question

“What Crime Would a ‘Special Prosecutor’ Prosecute?”

Senator Chuck Schumer

We know Director Comey was leading an investigation in [sic] whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians, a serious offense.” So inveighed Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D. N.Y.), according to a report by PJ Media’s Bridget Johnson. Senator Schumer added, “If there was ever a time when circumstances warranted a special prosecutor, it is now.”

No, it’s not.”

Solar Panel Company Files For Bankruptcy Despite Getting Lots Of Your Money

Another Obama pipe dream fails. The government just can not make winners out of losing proposition. This time they only wasted two hundred million.

“Largest US Solar Panel Maker Files For Bankruptcy After Receiving $206 Million In Subsidies”

The ongoing price erosion and the development of the business” has left the company “over-indebted and thus obliged to file for insolvency proceedings,” SolarWorld, which is also the largest U.S. solar panel maker, said in a statement.

The filing comes after SolarWorld was forced to lay off employees earlier this year. The company employs around 3,000 people, including 800 in Hillsboro, Oregon, and was one of the few German-based solar companies to survive a recent market downturn.

SolarWorld is only the latest bankrupt solar company to blame the Chinese. U.S.-based Suniva Inc. filed for bankruptcy in April, also citing stiff competition from Chinese solar panel makers.”

Predictably, Progressives Want To Shut Off Discussion From Those They Don’t Like

The vacuous blond who has been boinking the ‘Where’s Waldo’ lookalike Joe Scarborough, has taken it upon herself to give advice to CNN’s managers. “I don’t like Kellyanne Conway. Stop giving her airtime.” That’s typical for progressives who can’t win an argument with a mentally superior person. Shut them up.

“MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski said Friday that booking Kellyanne Conway as a guest amounts to “politics porn,” and called on CNN to stop having her on.”

Note to CNN: Sorry, I love CNN, but you’ve got to stop putting Kellyanne on the air,” she said. “It’s politics porn. You’re just getting your little ratings crack, okay? But it’s disgusting. There’s nothing that she brings to the table that’s honest. Your hosts know it. Your hosts look pained when they interview her because they know they’re just doing politics porn. They’re not doing news. We need to stick to the news.”

Results Of Alternative Energy Spending Are In – For 2014

“Here’s a quiz; no conferring. To the nearest whole number, what percentage of the world’s energy consumption was supplied by wind power in 2014, the last year for which there are reliable figures? Was it 20 per cent, 10 per cent or 5 per cent? None of the above: it was 0 per cent. That is to say, to the nearest whole number, there is still no wind power on Earth.”

That’s not quite correct. As the article in the UK Spectator says,

Even put together, wind and photovoltaic solar are supplying less than 1 per cent of global energy demand. From the International Energy Agency’s 2016 Key Renewables Trends, we can see that wind provided 0.46 per cent of global energy consumption in 2014, and solar and tide combined provided 0.35 per cent. Remember this is total energy, not just electricity, which is less than a fifth of all final energy, the rest being the solid, gaseous, and liquid fuels that do the heavy lifting for heat, transport and industry.”

So, yes, wind is less than half of one percent so it’s pretty true that zero is the nearest whole number.

Another – Big – Reason The Left Hates Donald Trump

He has beaten their main weapon. This should be a lesson to those who must deal with leftists. They are a one-trick pony. They holler, “Shame” about everything. They make up new ways to try to make people feel guilty. If you take that away from them they have nothing.

“Professor: Trump’s Refusal to Feel Guilty Stole Liberals’ Main Weapon”

An excellent article by Emory University English professor Mark Bauerlein at American Greatness discusses how Trump stole the left’s main weapon:

In the last 50 years of culture wars in America, there has been no stronger weapon than guilt. It is the Left’s great hammer of progress. It figured powerfully in the Civil Rights Movement, the anti-war movement, women’s liberation, and same-sex marriage. Guilt runs through the teaching of U.S. history from 5th grade through college. It colors controversies over affirmative action, transgender bathrooms, and the glass ceiling. The entire careers of Leftist commentators from the self-righteous Bill Moyers to the self-regarding Ta-Nehisi Coates rest upon it. If we add up the successes guilt has brought to progressive causes and identity politics, we realize just how important guilt is to the Left agenda. Without it, in fact, the Left fails.

So how did Trump destroy their guilt-inducing power? By refusing to accept it.”

I’m Surprised Shepard Smith Didn’t Think Of It First

This is from CNN. As bad as they want to take down President Trump it’s weak tea compared to the snarling vitriol that comes from Smith on Fox News. Either way it’s downright childish.

CNN picked up on a long article about this foolishness from Time magazine. That means the brainiacs at CNN didn’t think it up. They copied someone else.

The waiters know well Trump’s personal preferences. As he settles down, they bring him a Diet Coke, while the rest of us are served water, with the Vice President sitting at one end of the table. With the salad course, Trump is served what appears to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests. When the chicken arrives, he is the only one given an extra dish of sauce. At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else. The tastes of Pence are also tended to. Instead of the pie, he gets a fruit plate.”

Here is a story I found at Wirecutter’s place. Three men tried to take out a homeowner in a drive-by shooting. They fired at least 40 rounds at him and missed. He fired three rounds at them from his AR and hit all three in a moving vehicle. Two dead, one in surgery. That’s impressive shooting.

Gowdy To Replace Comey?

Oh, man…

“Here’s Who Trump Might Pick To Replace Comey”

President Trump reportedly set to work early Wednesday to choose a replacement for his first FBI director, James Comey.

While Trump’s surprise firing of Comey has led to speculation that he is attempting to cover up the Russia investigation, others are waiting to see who the Republican will pick.”

The Charge Of ‘Racism’ Is Getting Weaker

The other day we reported the story of a young black woman who was saddened to find that here ancestry included white people. Now we find a story of an obviously white man who discovers he has African ancestors. When he tells his co-workers they tease him. So he wants money.

I’m not convinced he isn’t trolling.

“Hastings police sergeant sues chief, city for racism”

Sgt. Cleon Brown

HASTINGS, Mich. — A veteran police sergeant with the Hastings Police Department is suing the police chief and the city, saying he was the subject of racial discrimination.

A complaint filed in federal court alleges state and federal civil rights violations, detailing events following a genetic test Sgt. Cleon Brown took through Ancestry.com revealing he is 18 percent black.

Brown claims after he revealed the test results, Hastings Police Chief Jeff Pratt called him “Kunta”, a character in the novel “Roots: The Saga of an American Family by American author Alex Haley.” The lawsuit also alleges some police department employees started whispering “Black Lives Matter” while pumping their fists as they walked past Brown.”

FBI: Criminal Investigation Into Clinton ‘Imminent’ Following Comey Departure(?)

There is some talk about this this morning. From Yournewswire.com:

The firing of FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday has “cleared the pathway” for the Justice Department, headed by Jeff Sessions, to relaunch an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified data while she served as Secretary of State, according to insiders at the bureau.

[…]

Comey’s congressional testimony last week, in which he made false statements later corrected by the FBI, was the final straw for the Trump administration.

The sight of the FBI Director admitting that Hillary Clinton broke the law, and then insisting that she will not be prosecuted because of a lack of intent, was too much to bear.

“I do think Director Comey was compromised,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said to Fox on Wednesday. “And the President made a presidential decision.”

Following the link to Fox we find it takes us to ABC affiliate WCVB where the headline is:

“‘Director Comey was compromised’: Paul Ryan speaks on former FBI director”

They quote a Fox News report:

Paul Ryan on Wednesday addressed former FBI Director James Comey’s departure. Speaking to Fox News, the Speaker of the House said Donald Trump ultimately made the right call.

“I do think Director Comey was compromised,” Ryan said. “And the President made a presidential decision.”

Ryan did not go on to explain just How he thought Comey was compromised. Even Professor Jacobsen at Legal Insurrection is asking, “With Comey out of the way, will Hillary now be prosecuted?”

All this begs a question. If Comey was compromised, who compromised him? The first link above assumes he was covering for Mrs. Clinton. Speaker Ryan just says he was ‘Compromised’.

Is it possible that Comey was the link between Russia and the surveillance and hacking?

Related: “RUSH: “Could a new FBI director reopen the Hillary investigation?” I assume so. There’s some Democrats paranoid that that’s why Trump did this. (impression) “Yeah, he’s tired that Comey wasn’t going after Hillary! So he got rid of Comey and put somebody in there that will go after Hillary.” Comey already listed her crimes. Comey’s already done that. That’s what he did July 5th. He listed everything she could be charged with. What did he say? “We couldn’t find any intent.” He… By the way, from the moment he said that, that’s not what the statute says!”

James Comey Is Not A Team Player

He wasn’t under the Obama Presidency and he wasn’t under Trump. He should have either been fired or resigned long ago.

President Trump has not made his Presidency easier by firing Comey. It will be infinitely more difficult as Democrats gang up to bludgeon him with innuendo. Even so, Comey had to go.

Trump has had a busy first quarter. Even so he has shown that he is willing to do the jobs that are difficult. Firing Comey was one of them. I don’t agree with many things he has done. Trade barriers, for instance, are counter-productive. Still, he campaigned on them and he has been strictly adhering to his promises. Cleaning house, or ‘Draining the swamp’, was one also.

Comey ignored the fact that his job as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation was, simply, to investigate. Any clues or other details the FBI discovered were supposed to be turned over to the Department of Justice for action. That is the law. The FBI is under the banner of the DOJ. They are the investigative arm. There are other arms that are charged with initiating legal action.

When Loretta Lynch, the head of the Department of Justice, decided to not prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling secret documents, Comey stepped in and decided he would do what she would not. That is not his job. That alone is sufficient cause for firing.

He then made the decision that Clinton’s actions did not warrant charging her – another act that exceeded his authority. He compounded it by saying so publicly.

Then he publicly cited each individual mistake that Clinton and her staffers made while saying they were not actionable. That is cause for termination but I believe, is actionable for interference in a Presidential election.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wrote a memo to President Trump. In it he outlined many of Comey’s transgressions. He also, along with Trump’s new Attorney Generals Jeff Sessions, recommended firing Comey.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has said he could not understand former FBI Director James Comey’s refusal to accept “nearly universal judgement that he was mistaken” in publicly exonerating Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of private email servers last year — and that’s why he got fired.

Mr Rosenstein joined with Attorney General Jeff Sessions in recommending to President Donald Trump that he fire Mr Comey for holding a press conference last year when he said he didn’t recommend prosecuting Ms Clinton.”

That’s strong stuff and it’s all valid.

Even so, Trump’s enemies will gleefully claim that he fired Comey entirely because he was investigating the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia. That is wicked and it subordinates what is right and proper for the country for petty partisan politics.

Shame on Senator Schumer and everyone who follows his lead.

Democrats Have An Argument Republicans Cannot Counter

“People will die”, is the truth. Everyone is going to die eventually. Even those who have good health care.

Democrats and media people are united in their attacks on the Trump health care bill. They all have gotten the same talking points. “People will die.”

It’s impossible to argue against that. You, I, and everyone else will die. Knowing this Democrats have used it to attack. There’s even a website where you can send the cremated ashes of yourself or a loved one to a Republican as a protest.
