The Dept. of Obstruction of Justice: "Baby Face" Lynch is More Corrupt Than "Machine Gun" Holder!

I Didn't Think That Was Even Possible!

...but I guess that's just what it takes to prop up a notorious Career Crime Bo$$ like "RICO" Rodham.

"Attention, All Units: Drain that Swamp!"
Our Daily Police Blotter; Be On the Lookout:
*Assistant FBI Director McCabe: “Are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?”

“Of course not,” the DOJ official reportedly said, after a brief pause.

Prosecutors with the U.S. attorneys office in the Eastern District of New York — which Loretta Lynch led before taking over as attorney general last year — refused to allow FBI investigators probing the Clinton family charity to review emails found on devices turned over this year by two of Clinton’s lawyers...

[T]he FBI and several U.S. attorneys offices were conducting an unorthodox, joint investigation into the Clinton Foundation. While the investigation has gone forward, the Justice Department has stymied the investigation at several turns, according to The Journal. The DOJ refused to grant the FBI the power to issue subpoenas or conduct formal interviews. It also refused to convene a grand jury to weigh evidence in the case." .......

More: FBI field offices in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Little Rock, Ark., are investigating the Clinton Foundation concerning allegations of pay-to-play financial and political corruption, according to a report at The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) Sunday.

Mirroring information provided by a former senior law enforcement official that “multiple FBI investigations are underway involving potential corruption charges against the Clinton Foundation,” WSJ revelation confirms what The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group reported in August.

Department of Justice (DOJ) officials repeatedly tried to shut down FBI field investigations. An unidentified senior Justice Department official “voice(d) his displeasure at finding that New York FBI agents were still openly pursuing the Clinton Foundation probe,” according to WSJ.

The Justice Department official “was pissed off” that the Foundation investigation was ongoing. ...Other agents “further down the FBI chain of command, however, said agents were given a much starker instruction on the case: ‘Stand down.’".......

*"Blind Sheik" Prosecutor Andy McCarthy:

"Mrs. Clinton ...converted the office of secretary of state into a racketeering enterprise. This would be a violation of the RICO law — the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act of 1971 (codified in the U.S. penal code at sections 1961 et seq.).
The foundation was a de facto fraud scheme to monetize Hillary’s power as secretary of state (among other aspects of the Clintons’ political influence). The scheme involved (a) the exchange of political favors, access, and influence for millions of dollars in donations; (b) the circumvention of campaign-finance laws that prohibit political donations by foreign sources; (c) a vehicle for Mrs. Clinton to shield her State Department e-mail communications from public and congressional scrutiny while she and her husband exploited the fundraising potential of her position; and (d) a means for Clinton insiders to receive private-sector compensation and explore lucrative employment opportunities while drawing taxpayer-funded government salaries. ...

In the months that followed, Giustra gave an astonishing $31.3 million to the Clinton Foundation and pledged $100 million more. ...

The arrest [ of the Mining Minister at Putin's direction], which happened a few months after Obama took office, sent Uranium One stock into free fall, as investors fretted that the Kazakh mining rights would be lost. Uranium One turned to Secretary Clinton’s State Department for help. As State Department cables disclosed by WikiLeaks show, Uranium One officials wanted more than a U.S. statement to the media; they pressed for written confirmation that their mining licenses were valid. Secretary Clinton’s State Department leapt into action: An energy officer from the U.S. embassy immediately held meetings with the Kazakh regime. A few days later, it was announced that Russia’s Rosatom had purchased 17 percent of Uranium One. Problem solved.
Except it became a bigger problem when the Russian company sought to acquire a controlling interest in Uranium One. That would mean a takeover not only of the Kazakh mines but of the U.S. uranium assets as well. Such a foreign grab requires approval by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, a powerful government tribunal that the secretary of state sits on and heavily influences. Though she had historically postured as a hawk against foreign acquisitions of American assets with critical national-security implications, Secretary Clinton approved the Russian takeover of Uranium One. During and right after the big-bucks Russian acquisition, Telfer contributed $1.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. Other people with ties to Uranium One appear to have ponied up as much as $5.6 million in donations.".......

 *Former US Attorney Joseph DiGenova:

“According to the agreement reached with the attorneys who handed over their laptops, the laptops were to be destroyed per the agreement after the testimony was given –the interviews were given – – by the attorneys. The bureau and the department agreed to that. However, the laptops, contrary to published reports. were not destroyed and the reason is the agents who are tasked with destroying them refused to do so. And by the way, the laptops are at the FBI for inspection by Congress or federal courts.”

*Former Assistant FBI Director James Kallstrom:

"The Clintons, that’s a crime family, basically. It’s like organized crime. I mean the Clinton Foundation is a cesspool, The problem here is this investigation was never a real investigation. That’s the problem. They never had a grand jury empanelled, and the reason they never had a grand jury empanelled, I’m sure, is Loretta Lynch would not go along with that. God forbid we put someone like that in the White House. The agents are furious with what’s going on, I know that for a fact.".......

The wheels are coming off the Paddy Wagon for "Tarmac Tess", "Felony" Clinton and the whole "Gang That Couldn't Grift Straight".

"Huma--Bake me a cake with some White House silverware in it. I'm bustin' outta here tonight.
Tell "Parolee" Podesta to bring me one of his wigs, have "Gun Moll" Mills bring a bag of cash...wait, make it two bags, wait--make it five bags, and tell Carlos "Big Tony" Danger to pull my car around back at midnight."

"...Was that a siren?"

How Crooked Hillary Single-Handedly Made Me a Republican

A Lifetime of Lies

 Rat got your tongue?

...Cornered! (via Orkin)

Peggy Noonan Tells the Tail:

"On May 19, 1993, less than four months into the administration, the seven men who had long worked in the White House travel office were suddenly and brutally fired. The seven nonpartisan government workers, who helped arrange presidential trips, served at the pleasure of the president. But each new president had kept them on because they were good at their jobs.

A veteran civil servant named Billy Dale had worked in the office 30 years and headed it the last 10. He and his colleagues were ordered to clear out their desks and were escorted from the White House, which quickly announced they were the subject of a criminal investigation by the FBI.

They were in shock. So were members of the press, who knew Mr. Dale and his colleagues as honest and professional. A firestorm ensued.

Under criticism the White House changed its story. They said that they were just trying to cut unneeded staff and save money. Then they said they were trying to impose a competitive bidding process. They tried a new explanation—the travel office shake-up was connected to Vice President Al Gore’s National Performance Review. (Almost immediately Mr. Gore said that was not true.) The White House then said it was connected to a campaign pledge to cut the White House staff by 25%. Finally they claimed the workers hadn’t been fired at all but placed on indefinite “administrative leave.”

Why so many stories? Because the real one wasn’t pretty.

It emerged in contemporaneous notes of a high White House staffer that the travel-office workers were removed because Mrs. Clinton wanted to give their jobs—their “slots,” as she put it, according to the notes of director of administration David Watkins—to political operatives who’d worked for Mr. Clinton’s campaign. And she wanted to give the travel office business itself to loyalists. There was a travel company based in Arkansas with long ties to the Clintons. There was a charter travel company founded by Harry Thomason, a longtime friend and fundraiser, which had provided services in the 1992 campaign. If the travel office were privatized and put to bid, he could get the business.

On top of that, a staffer named Catherine Cornelius, said to be the new president’s cousin, also wanted to run the travel office. In his book “Blood Sport,” the reporter James B. Stewart described her as “dazzled by her proximity to power, full of a sense of her own importance.” Soon rumors from her office, and others, were floating through the White House: The travel office staff were disloyal crooks.

The White House pressed the FBI to investigate, FBI agents balked—on what evidence?—but ultimately there was an investigation, and an audit.

All along Mrs. Clinton publicly insisted she had no knowledge of the firings. Then it became barely any knowledge, then barely any involvement. When the story blew up she said under oath that she had “no role in the decision to terminate the employees.” She did not “direct that any action be taken by anyone.” In a deposition she denied having had a role in the firings, and said she was unable to remember conversations with various staffers with any specificity.

A General Accounting Office report found she did play a role. But three years later a memo written by David Watkins to the White House chief of staff, recounting the history of the firings, suddenly surfaced. (“Suddenly surfaced” is a phrase one reads a lot in Clinton scandal stories.) It showed Mrs. Clinton herself directed them. “There would be hell to pay,” he wrote, if staffers did not conform “to the first lady’s wishes.”

Billy Dale was indicted on charges including embezzlement. The trial lasted almost two weeks. Mr. Dale, it emerged, could have kept better books. The jury acquitted him in less than two hours. In the end he retired, as did his assistant. The five others were given new government jobs.

So—that was the Clintons’ first big Washington scandal. It showed what has now become the Clinton Scandal Ritual: lie, deny, revise, claim not to remember specifics, stall for time. When it passes, call the story “old news” full of questions that have already been answered. “As I’ve repeatedly said...”

More scandals would follow. They all showed poor judgment on the part of the president, and usually Mrs. Clinton. They all included a startling willingness—and ability—to dissemble.

People watched and got a poor impression.".......

I watched--and got the urge to vomit.

"Dissemble" is the word polite people like Ms. Noonan use for "bald-faced liar". Me, I just use the word "Clinton".

In those days, I thought I was a moderate Southern Democrat. I voted for Jimmeh Cotta in '76. And in '92, I voted for the Bill and Hill Package Deal and AlGore, before he went Full-Dirt Worship--never go full dirt-worship.

By 1994, I was a Billy Dale Republican. With some help from Mr. Buckley.

It was Hillary's completely gratuitous persecution of Mr. Dale that catalyzed my thinking.

Imagine if you can Mr. Dale's predicament. You are completely innocent. Yet your mere existence makes the First Lady of the United States look bad. So she commands the FBI to trump up charges against you with an aim to burying you under a federal prison.

The worst part: she could have simply fired you in the beginning as was her right, but her twisted bungling to avoid responsibility kept escalating the situation. Having served your country and the public honorably since Jack Kennedy was in office, you now sit wondering if you should take a plea deal or fight for your freedom against the full might of a rigged Federal Government arrayed against you--and spearheaded by the president's own wife, Crooked Hillary Clinton.

I had never seen anything so arrogant and imperious, so Empress-like in my life.

It was pure Third World-ish Dragon Lady-tyranny, and it gave me a visceral distaste for bullies and dictators that has remained with me to this day.

I said to myself "If that's what a Democrat is, I'm not one." And I haven't cast a vote for so much as a Democrat dog-catcher since then. By the way, it took the jury mere moments to acquit.

Hillary Clinton is evil. Not irredeemably, but thus far remarkably and reliably so.

 Noonan: "The point is it didn’t start the past few years, it started almost a quarter-century ago. You have to wonder, what are the chances it will change?"

Oh, it will change--by getting worse. It already has. The only thing you really have to wonder is if we are suicidal enough to give her the power she so desperately worships. Never go full-power worship. Or ca$h-, either.

“You can't get rich in politics unless you're a crook.”
--Pres. Harry S. Truman, an honorable Democrat--remember them? Gone.

By the way, Noonan--and Mr. Trump--get one thing wrong; it didn't begin a quarter-century ago. It began over forty years ago, when honorable Democrats summarily fired Miss Rodham from the Watergate Committee in 1974 for--wait for it--hiding public documents, legal malpractice, lying when caught and naked presidential ambitions (Ted Kennedy's then)!

The Leg-Humping Press has tried to bury that story of her first foray into national politics, a lie by omission, courtesy of your MemoryHole Media.

Just look at where and what that lie has gotten us; a lifetime of lies.

From the Liar of our Lifetime.

Full Text: Donald Trump's Speech in Phoenix, Arizona 10/29/2016


(Photos: Patrick Breen / The Republic)

(Video here) Full Text as prepared:

"The Silent Majority is back. In 10 days, we are going to win the state of Arizona and we are going to win back the White House.

A Trump Administration will immediately repeal and replace the disaster known as Obamacare.
It’s just been announced that the citizens of Arizona are going to experience a 116 percent increase in their Obamacare premiums. Elect me, and WE WILL STOP THE PREMIUM HIKES FOR GOOD. WE WILL STOP THE MADNESS OF OBAMACARE.
Every single one of Arizona’s 15 counties is losing insurers next year because of Obamacare. In Phoenix, there are 8 Obamacare insurers this year. Next year there will be only one. And it was announced this week that Obamacare premiums in Phoenix will go up 145% next year. One insurer in the state will have a $14,000 deductible.
Obamacare is a catastrophe for Arizona, and a catastrophe for all of America.
Even Bill Clinton admitted Obamacare is “the craziest thing in the world,” where “people wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half.”
In Minnesota, where the premium increase will be close to 60 percent, the Democratic Governor has said “the Affordable Care Act is no longer affordable.”
Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare, admitted it was all a fraud, and he said, outrageously, that it was passed because of the “stupidity of the American voter.”
Hillary Clinton wants to double-down on Obamacare, making it even more expensive.
My Contract With the American Voter outlines a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, and I’m asking for your vote so we can save healthcare for every family in Arizona.

Real change also means getting rid of the corruption in Washington.
As you have heard, it was just announced yesterday that the FBI is reopening their investigation into the criminal and illegal conduct of Hillary Clinton.
This is the biggest political scandal since Watergate, and it is everybody's deepest hope that justice, at last, can be delivered.
Hillary has nobody but herself to blame for her mounting legal troubles. Her criminal action was willful, deliberate, intentional, and purposeful.
Hillary set-up an illegal server for the obvious purpose of shielding her criminal conduct from public disclosure – and exposure.
She set-up this illegal server knowing full well that her actions put our national security at risk, and put the safety and security of your children at risk. But she didn’t care – as long as she and Bill got the money, the safety of your family didn’t matter.
To cover-up her crimes, she bleached and deleted 33,000 emails after receiving a Congressional Subpoena, made 13 phones disappear – some with a hammer, lied to Congress under oath, lied to the FBI many times, and then two boxes of email evidence went mysteriously missing.

The WikiLeaks revelations have exposed criminal corruption at the highest levels of our government.
Hillary put the office of Secretary of State up for sale and, if she ever got the chance, she’d put the Oval Office up for sale too. She’d put it up for sale to special interests and foreign dictators – whoever offers the highest price.
Yet, now it’s reported that the Department of Justice is fighting the FBI – that’s because the Department of Justice is trying to protect Hillary Clinton.
97% of Department of Justice employee’s presidential contributions went to Hillary Clinton.
There are those, and I happen to be one of them, who think Hillary offered Lorretta Lynch a reappointment as Attorney General if she were to become President. Perhaps that was what Bill Clinton was arranging when he met with Attorney General Lynch on her airplane on the tarmac right here in Arizona.
This is what we mean when we say the system is rigged.

A vote for Hillary is a vote to surrender our government to public corruption, graft and cronyism that threatens the survival of our Constitutional system itself.
What makes us exceptional is that we are a nation of laws, and that we are all equal under those laws – Hillary’s corruption shreds the principle on which our nation was founded.
Government corruption spreads outward, like a cancer, infecting the whole operation of our government.
When the outcome is fixed, when the system is rigged, people lose hope – they stop dreaming, they stop trying.
When the powerful can get away with anything, because they have the money and the connections to rig the system, then people lose confidence in our laws and in our future.
Hillary’s corruption is corrosive to the soul of our nation, and it must be stopped.
As FDR once said, “government by organized money is just as dangerous as government by organized mob.”

Hillary believes money and power – not truth and justice – should rule the day.
We have one ultimate check on Hillary’s corruption, and that is the power of voting. The only way to beat the corruption is to show up and vote by the tens of millions, including millions of people voting for the first time in their entire lives.
Vote with all of your heart and soul to Make America Great Again.
Restoring honesty to our government, and the rule of law to our society, will be my highest priority as President.
Haven't we had enough drama with the Clintons? Bill Clinton was impeached for lying and obstructing justice, signed the worst trade deal in history, NAFTA, which emptied our country of it's manufacturing jobs, and he doesn't even have the right to practice law.
Hillary has brought scandal or destroyed everything she touched.
Look at Whitewater, cattle futures, jobs in Upstate New York, or look at Syria, Iraq, Libya, and now her emails.

This will be the year the American people say: enough is enough.
This will be the year the American people break with the bitter failures of the past and embrace a new and optimistic future.
My Contract With The American Voter begins with a plan to end government corruption.
I want the entire corrupt Washington establishment to hear and to heed the words we are all about to say.
When we win on November 8th, We Are Going To Washington, D.C. And We Are Going To DRAIN THE SWAMP.

At the core of my contract is my plan to bring back our jobs.
Right now, 70 million American women and children live in poverty, or near the brink of poverty.
America has lost one-third of its manufacturing jobs since Bill and Hillary's NAFTA. America has lost 70,000 factories since China entered the World Trade Organization.
We are living through the greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. Hillary's goal is to send millions and millions more jobs out of our country.
Hillary is going to raise taxes up to 45 percent, massively expand regulation, shut down American energy, and push through terrible trade deals that offshore our jobs for the benefit of her donors.
Her policies will cause a major recession, or even a depression.
A Trump Administration will stop TPP, renegotiate NAFTA, and we are going to stand up to China on Currency Manipulation.
We are going to lower taxes on American business from 35 percent to 15 percent.
We are going to cut taxes for Middle Class families by hundreds of billions of dollars.
My infrastructure plan will provide help for projects like the proposed Interstate-11, which would connect Phoenix with Las Vegas and other areas.
We will also unleash the full power of American energy including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
We will become a rich nation once again.

But to be a rich country, we must also be a safe country.
A Trump Administration will also secure and defend the borders of the United States. And yes, we will build a wall.
We have the endorsement of America's ICE and Border Patrol Officers, the first time they have ever made an endorsement.
When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State she allowed thousands of the most dangerous criminal aliens in the world to go free inside America because their home countries wouldn't take them back.
These were people guilty of murder, assault, rape, and all manner of violent crime.
Hillary has pledged “open borders,” and supports Sanctuary Cities.
Countless Americans are killed by illegal immigrants because our government won't do it's job.
These include amazing Americans like Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, of Mesa Arizona, who was killed by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record who should have been deported – but the government refused to act. I’ve spent time with his incredible mother.
28-year-old Park Ranger Kris Eggle was shot and killed by a drug cartel hit squad responsible for a number of murders. Kris died trying to protect our borders from drug and weapon trafficking into the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.
33-year-old Phoenix Police Officer Nick Erfle, a young cancer survivor, was murdered by a previously- deported illegal immigrant with a felony warrant. Nick was shot twice in the back of the head.
21-year-old Grant Ronnebeck, was working at a convenience store in Mesa Arizona when he was shot point blank by an illegal immigrant.
His illegal immigrant killer, despite a criminal record, was out on bond, roaming free.
When I become President, this crime wave ends.
We are going to cancel all federal funding for Sanctuary Cities.
We are going to impose tough prison sentences for illegal immigrants who return after a previous deportation.
We will end illegal immigration, deport every last criminal alien, and save American lives.

We will also repeal the Obama-Clinton defense sequester and rebuild our badly depleted military. We have the endorsements of over 200 Admirals and Generals and 22 Medal of Honor Recipients.
Our Air Force is the smallest and oldest it has ever been, and my plan builds the modern, advanced fighter aircraft we need – fighters like those that will be stationed at Luke Air Force Base.
Our Army is the smallest it has been since before World War II, and we will significantly increase both the size of our Army and the emphasis we place on intelligence – that means supporting the men and women at Fort Huachuca, home of the Army's Intelligence Center.
Places like Marine Corps Air Station Yuma will have new aircraft – they won’t have to get spare parts from museums anymore.
We also need a new foreign policy that puts America First.
Hillary’s policies unleashed ISIS, empowered Iran, and spread death and destruction across the Middle East.
Hillary and our failed Washington Establishment have spent $6 trillion on wars in the Middle East, and now it’s in worse shape than ever before.
Our failed establishment has betrayed the American worker and family. They’ve dragged us into foreign wars that have made us less safe, they have left our borders wide open at home, and they’ve shipped our jobs and wealth to other countries.

To all Americans I say: it is time for new leadership.

Just think about what we can accomplish in the first 100 days –
We are going to have the biggest tax cut since Ronald Reagan; eliminate every unnecessary job-killing regulation; cancel every illegal Obama executive order; stop the massive inflow of refugees and keep Radical Islamic Terrorist out of our country; rebuild our military and take care of our Vets; reduce surging crime and support the men and women of law enforcement; provide school choice and put an end to Common Core; save the 2nd amendment; and appoint Justices to the Supreme Court who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Americans are tired of being told by politicians that they have to defer their dreams to another day, but they really mean another decade.
Hillary has been there for 30 years, and she has accomplished nothing – she’s just made things worse.
She is the candidate of yesterday. We are the movement of the future.

Our movement represents all Americans, from all backgrounds, and all walks of life. We are asking for the votes of Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and first-time voters.
We are fighting for every citizen who believes that government should serve the people – not the donors and special interests.
We are fighting to unlock the potential of every American community, and every American family, who yearns for a better future.
With your vote, we are just 10 days away from the change you’ve been waiting for your entire life.
Together, We Will Make America JUST Again.
We Will Make America Strong Again.
We Will Make America Safe Again.

And We Will Make America Great Again.".......


James Bond in "Sec. No": How Many of Our Secret Agents Did Hillary Kill With Her Emails?

Ian Fleming's "Dr. No":

"The three blind men would not have been incongruous in Kingston, where there are many diseased people on the streets, but, in this quiet rich empty street, they made an unpleasant impression. And it was odd that they should all be Chinese Negroes. This is not a common mixture of bloods. ...
At this time precisely, even if they were in the middle of a hand, Strangways had to go to his 'office' and 'make a call'. It was a damned nuisance. But Strangways was a vital part of their four and they put up with it. It was never explained what 'the call' was, and no one asked. Strangways's job was 'hush' and that was that. He was rarely away for more than twenty minutes and it was understood that he paid for his absence with a round of drinks.
The drinks came and the three men began to talk racing.
In fact, this was the most important moment in Strangways' day-the time of his duty radio contact with the powerful transmitter on the roof of the building in Regent's Park that is the headquarters of the Secret Service. Every day, at eighteen-thirty local time, unless he gave' warning the day before that he would not be on the air-when he had business on one of the other islands in his territory, for instance, or was seriously ill-he would transmit his daily report and receive his orders. If he failed to come on the air precisely at six-thirty, there would be a second call, the 'Blue' call, at seven, and, finally, the 'Red' call at seven-thirty. After this, if his transmitter remained silent, it was 'Emergency', and Section III, his controlling authority in London, would urgently get on the job of finding out what had happened to him.
Even a 'Blue' call means a bad mark for an agent unless his 'Reasons in Writing' are unanswerable. London's radio schedules round the world are desperately tight and their minute disruption by even one extra call is a dangerous nuisance. Strangways had never suffered the ignominy of a 'Blue' call, let alone a 'Red', and was as certain as could be that he never would do so. Every evening, at precisely six-fifteen, he left Queen's Club, got into his car and drove for ten minutes up into the foothills of the Blue Mountains to his neat bungalow with the fabulous view over Kingston harbour. At six twenty-five he walked through the hall to the office at the back. He unlocked the door and locked it again behind him. Miss Trueblood, who passed as his secretary, but was in fact his No. 2 and a former Chief Officer WRNS, would already be sitting in front of the dials inside the dummy filing cabinet. She would have the earphones on and would be making first contact, tapping out his call-sign, WXN, on 14 megacycles. There would be a shorthand pad on her elegant knees. Strangways would drop into the chair beside her and pick up the other pair of headphones and, at exactly six twenty-eight, he would take over from her and wait for the sudden hollowness in the ether that meant that WWW in London was coming in to acknowledge.
It was an iron routine. Strangways was a man of iron routine. Unfortunately, strict patterns of behaviour can be deadly if they are read by an enemy.
Strangways, a tall lean man with a black patch over the right eye and the sort of aquiline good looks you associate with the bridge of a destroyer, walked quickly across the mahogany panelled hallway of Queen's Club and pushed through the light mosquito-wired doors and ran down the three steps to the path.
There was nothing very much on his mind except the sensual pleasure of the clean fresh evening air and the memory of the finesse that had given him his three spades. There was this case, of course, the case he was working on, a curious and complicated affair that M had rather nonchalantly tossed over the air at him two weeks earlier. But it was going well. A chance lead into the Chinese community had paid off. Some-odd angles had come to light-for the present the merest shadows of angles-but if they jelled, thought Strangways as. he strode down the gravel path and into Richmond Road, he might find himself involved in something very odd indeed.
Strangways shrugged his shoulders. Of course it wouldn't turn out like that. The fantastic never materialized in his line of business. There would be some drab solution that had been embroidered by overheated imaginations and the usual hysteria of the Chinese.
Automatically, another part of Strangways's mind took in the three blind men. They were tapping slowly towards him down the sidewalk. They were about twenty yards away. He calculated that they would pass him a second or two before he reached his car. Out of shame for his own health and gratitude for it, Strangways felt for a coin. He ran his thumbnail down its edge to make sure it was a florin and not a penny. He took it out. He was parallel with the beggars. How odd, they were all Chigroes! How very odd! Strangways's hand went out. The coin clanged in the tin cup.
“Bless you, Master,” said the leading man. “Bless you,” echoed the other two.
The car key was in Strangways's hand. Vaguely he registered the moment of silence as the tapping of the white sticks ceased. It was too late.
As Strangways had passed the last man, all three had swivelled. The back two had fanned out a step to have a clear field of fire. Three revolvers, ungainly with their sausage-shaped silencers, whipped out of holsters concealed among the rags. With disciplined precision the three men aimed at different points down Strangways's spine-one between the shoulders, one in the small of the back, one at the pelvis.
The three heavy coughs were almost one. Strangways's body was hurled forward as if it had been kicked. It lay absolutely still in the small puff of dust from the sidewalk." ...

"'WXN calling WWW... WXN calling WWW...
WXN... WXN... WXN...'
The centre finger of Mary Trueblood's right hand stabbed softly, elegantly, at the key. She lifted her left wrist. Six twenty-eight. He was a minute late. Mary Trueblood smiled at the thought of the little open Sunbeam tearing up the road towards her. Now, in a second, she would hear the quick step, then the key in the lock and he would be sitting beside her. There would be the apologetic smile as he reached for the earphones. “Sorry, Mary. Damned car wouldn't start.” Or, “You'd think the blasted police knew my number by now. Stopped me at Halfway Tree.” Mary Trueblood took the second pair of earphones off their hook and put them on his chair to save him half a second.
'... WXN calling WWW____WXN calling WWW____'
She tuned the dial a hair's breadth and tried again. Her watch said six-twenty-nine. She began to worry. In a matter of seconds, London would be coming in. Suddenly she thought, God, what could she do if Strangways wasn't on time! It was useless for her to acknowledge London and pretend she was him-useless and dangerous. Radio Security would be monitoring the call, as they monitored every call from an agent. Those instruments which measured the minute peculiarities in an operator's 'fist' would at once detect it wasn't Strangways at the key. Mary Trueblood had been shown the forest of dials in the quiet room on the top floor at headquarters, had watched as the dancing hands registered the weight of each pulse, the speed of each cipher group, the stumble over a particular letter. The Controller had explained it all to her when she had joined the Caribbean station five years before-how a buzzer would sound and the contact be automatically broken if the wrong operator had come on the air. It was the basic protection against a Secret Service transmitter falling into enemy hands. And, if an agent had been captured and was being forced to contact London under torture, he had only to add a few hairbreadth peculiarities to his usual 'fist' and they would tell the story of his capture as clearly as if he had announced it en clair.
Now it had come! Now she was hearing the hollowness in the ether that meant London was coming in. Mary Trueblood glanced at her watch. Six-thirty. Panic! But now, at last, there were the footsteps in the hall. Thank God! In a second he would come in. She must protect him! Desperately she decided to take a chance and keep the circuit open.
'WWW calling WXN____WWW calling WXN____Can you hear me?... can you hear me?' London was coming over strong, searching for the Jamaica station.
The footsteps were at the door.
Coolly, confidently, she tapped back: 'Hear you loud and clear... Hear you loud and clear... Hear you..."
Behind her there was an explosion. Something hit her on the ankle. She looked down. It was the lock of the door.
Mary Trueblood swivelled sharply on her chair. A man stood in the doorway. It wasn't Strangways. It was a big Negro with yellowish skin and slanting eyes. There was a gun in his hand. It ended in a thick black cylinder.
Mary Trueblood opened her mouth to scream.
The man smiled broadly. Slowly, lovingly, he lifted the gun and shot her three times in and around the left breast.
The girl slumped sideways off her chair. The earphones slipped off her golden hair on to the floor. For perhaps a second the tiny chirrup of London sounded out into the room. Then it stopped. The buzzer at the Controller's desk in Radio Security had signalled that something was wrong on WXN.".......

"It's the usual, Double-O Seven. Hillary's big blabbermouth on her "secret" Bribery Server
has gotten more of our agents killed again. I want you to go to Jamaica, splash around with Ursula
 and wait for James Comey to re-open the investigation."

"That's a very fine pair
of secret agents we lost. They disappeared right after Hillary pressed "send"."

"Hillary sent me to confiscate your guns, James."
"Damn it, Comey--she's not the president!"
"But...but all the networks said she was!"
"You mean the same networks that say Obama's not a Muslim?"

"Quarrel, we've got to find Sec. No's Secret Lair before she gets even more agents killed! Look for weapons, bodies, smashed Blackberries, Strangways' uranium samples, Weiner's teen-age groupies, Brownshirt thugs from the Oval Office and, above all, very large piles of foreign cash."

"Over here, Mr. James; Hillary left a long trail of dead bodies in her wake!"

"Look; it's our Top Secret Flame-Throwing Tank that went missing!"

"Sure, I sold the tank to the Libyan rebels. How was I supposed to know they'd use it
to burn down the Embassy? What difference, at this point, does it make?"

"No wonder Creamer's Goon Squads wear Haz-Mat suits;
the ClintonStench in here is revolting! I need...we need a shower." 

"Comey's re-opened my case...they're closing in on us!"
"What do you mean "us", Sec. No?"
"You've got to help me get away--I feel like a cornered rat!"
"Very well. Perhaps Comrade P will let you hide in his Undersea Fortress."

"Sorry, Babushka. Is no room for you--unless you vish to sell me the rest of America's uranium!"
"It's all over, Granny. Your Bribery Empire is closed and you're headed to Sing Sing.
And tell that bashtard Trebek he's next!"

"Did somebody mention my name? I was just chillin' with the fillies at Weiner's crib--
but if subpoenaed, I assert my Game Show Right to answer all questions in the form of a question!"

What is 'How Many of Our Secret Agents Did Hillary Kill With Her Emails?' for all the bribe money in the world, Alex.

Ptolemy Told On Me

“It’s the big fact of American life now, isn’t it? That we are patronized by our inferiors.”--Peggy Noonan

The College Fix: VIDEO: Math professor urges students to vote for Hillary Clinton

"While Rosnick insisted he was not telling students who to vote for, he used common Democrat talking points against Trump as he spoke to students on Oct. 21 about the upcoming election.
“I am in the very unusual situation where my father was an immigrant and my children are immigrants,” he said. “Vote for whoever you want, but vote for somebody who respects the fact that this is a country built on immigrants — that this is a country that couldn’t, that wouldn’t be what it is if it wasn’t for bringing immigrants into our nation and respecting them and respecting what they bring to our country.” ...
“I’m kinda being cute about it but I’m not feeling this is funny,” he said. “This is the most serious election in 48 years that I’ve been voting, so do the math, right?”"........

No--you do the math, Professor. It's literally your job. Not forcing your political opinions on captive young people who can't argue back because of the power imbalance, like sexual harassment, but political harassment.

Not to mention that the students took out large, burdensome loans to learn math, not your opinions. It's financial fraud to take students' money under false pretenses--isn't that what you said about Trump U.?

"One student in the class who spoke to The College Fix on the condition of anonymity said she did not feel Rosnick should have made the comments he did.
“I find it highly inappropriate for a math teacher to use my class time to try to tell me who to vote for,” she said."

This professor has a long history of propagandizing students, reminiscent of when students were forced to watch Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" in Science class. And again in Social Studies. And again in French class. And again in P.E. And again in blahblahblahblahblahblahblah.

In the real world, a plumber or a banker or a mechanic who made you listen to their rants would be fired. But professors have welded themselves onto the public teat with tenure. News Flash, perfessers; that makes you welders. Your day is coming.

In itself, this incident is not the end of the world. But similar incidents play out repeatedly everyday on almost every campus. It's just one more little symptom in a vast Fever Swamp of Leftist bullying, coercion and the ultra-politicization of American life.

Nor are there are many conservative professors to serve as counterweight. Our Academy never hires them in the first place.

Our so-called "inclusive" universities are operating in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination based on political creed.

They want tax dollars from both conservatives and liberals--but only want input from liberals. If they're going to be a One-Party State, then let them get their funding from liberals only.

This is just another part of #RiggedAmerica: we've got a largely One-Party School System, a One-Party Media, a One-Party Bureaucracy, a One-Party Show-Biz Culture and a Uni-Party Crony-ocracy.

And they wonder 'Why Trump?'. Yeah; it's a real mystery.

But I do agree with the professor on this;

Don't vote for any presidential candidate who's not married to an immigrant!

Ladies and America First!

Steyn: "In 2012, Mitt Romney was worried about Russia, and Barack Obama sneered that "the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back". Four years later, it's the Democrats who are running around shrieking about Russian "interference" in the US election. ...

The 1980s are again calling to ask for their foreign policy back. But this time the roles are reversed. We're now the guys with the closed, secretive, paranoid elite desperate to prevent the truth getting out to the wider world. In the Soviet Union, the apparatchiks of the one-party state warned you not to listen to the BBC on short-wave under the bed covers at night. In America, CNN's Chris Cuomo warns you that it's "illegal" for you to read those Wikileaks emails. So just leave it to credentialed media wallahs like him to let you know if there's anything in them of any interest. Which, judging from the networks' coverage, there isn't.

So, as Chris Cuomo sees it, the same FBI whose officials were leaned on not to investigate Hillary for illegally keeping classified emails on a server housed in some guy's toilet in Colorado should instead investigate you for reading emails about her illegal emails. This is what a supposedly free press has been reduced to in order to drag Hillary across the finish line."......

Steyn 'Peace Dividend' Bonus: Why Is Bill Cosby Finished While Bill Clinton Is Beloved?

"Nobody needed criminal convictions to drop Cosby - just multiple accusations of sexual assault and some out-of-court payouts. But multiple accusations of sexual assault, out-of-court payouts and the loss of his law license are apparently not enough to bar Bill Clinton from another eight years in the White House.
Why is Bill Cosby finished? He was the most beloved guy. We keep hearing Bill Clinton is the most beloved guy in America. 'If Bill Clinton was on the ticket, he'd sweep all 50 states. It would be a landslide. Americans love Bill Clinton.' They loved Bill Cosby – nice grandfatherly Bill Cosby. But somehow, for some reason – you don't see 'The Bill Cosby Show' on TV anymore. You don't see it on the rerun channels. He is not appearing anywhere.
You'd almost think it's some kind of like racism thing, that somehow, when a bunch of women make accusations against the black guy – boom, he's vaporized. When a bunch of women make accusations against some white southern redneck — we're talking about putting him back in the White House for another eight years as First Gentleman.".........

They left the White House selling military secrets to the Chinese, pardons to Marc Rich for Iran sanctions violations and paying huge sums to sexual assault victims--what's not to love?

Stop the Insanity.

Death Panel Days


"You can't be for big government, big taxes, and big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy."
Stephen Green:

BUT DEATH PANELS ARE A MYTH: Terminally ill mom denied treatment coverage — but gets suicide drug approved.

Fox: "Then her doctors suggested that switching to another chemotherapy drug might buy her time. Her medical insurance company refused to pay. She says she asked if the company covered the cost of drugs to put her to death. She was told the answer is yes — with a co-payment of $1.20."

"Man is not free unless government is limited."
Meanwhile, the preznit says all that CoerciveCare needs is trillions of borrowed Chinese dollars.

The architect of the scheme, Hans Gruber, goes even farther, saying the plan is working perfectly as designed, and you should get your lying eyes checked by a doctor, even though you'll have to pay for it out of pocket.

Gruber, who says voters are so stupid they can be lied to with impunity, does recommend one change, however:

Higher fines and penalties for those who fail to bow down before the Almighty God of Government.

UPDATE: Mary Katherine Ham: "This year, my premium is going up 96 percent. Ninety-six percent. My monthly payment, which was the amount of a decent car payment, is now the size of a moderate mortgage. The president refers to these for thousands of citizens as “a few bugs” when to us it feels like a flameout. For this astronomical payment, I get a plan with an astronomical deductible that my healthy family of three will likely never hit except in the most catastrophic of circumstances.
...When President Obama sold Obamacare to the American people, he promised three things. 1) That we could keep our plans if we liked them. 2) That the new system would offer competition between great options through an Obamacare marketplace, and 3) That our premiums would go down.
Not “go up slower” or “go up but eventually go down,” but go down— $2,500 was the figure.
The letter I got last week is a betrayal of every one of those promises. I did not get to keep the plan I liked. The new system does not offer competition between great options through an Obamacare marketplace. And my premiums have gone up more than 150 percent in two years.".......

This is a government that has declared war on its own citizens.

Your Royal Hineys


(from the Archives, Jan. 2009, when the Leg-Humping Media was in full puppy-love mode over their shiny new boyfriend, His Perfectly Perfect Perfection. Now that the the bloom is off that rose in the wake of the Most Thoroughly Failed Presidency in History, their brand new boyfriend is a haggard, corrupt, disease-ridden old hack--and they're even more in the tank for Granny Goodbribe than they were for the Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers!)

"There--I guess Queen Hillary will be able to read that without her inter-cranial double-vision Fresnel prism spectacles!"

When some military officers suggested that George Washington be made King of America, they got shot down harder than Harry Smith asking Jennifer Anniston out on a date. But you couldn't really blame them; after all, that's how it had always been done. Until America.

We fought for republicanism and democracy and against monarchy and aristocracy; yet we seem to be slipping backwards. Do we really prefer to subjugate ourselves as subjects rather than doing the hard but rewarding work of being free citizens of the City on a Hill?

"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority,
keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

Prince Obama lectured us that "other countries" would not accept Americans turning up their thermostats to 72 degrees. And on his first day in the Oval Office, he cranks his thermostat up to 102. As Karl Rove--I mean, David Axelrod put it: “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

Guess what, David; other Americans like to be warm, too. But they're not lecturing President Hothouse ManFlower about what "other countries" find acceptable. In fact, when they get finished paying their own power bills, they pay his, too. Does this all seem a bit royal to you?

Consider John Adams, who was mocked mercilessly as a monarchist. Wikipedia:
In the first year of Washington's administration, Adams became deeply involved in a month-long Senate controversy over what the official title of the President would be. Adams favored grandiose titles such as "His Majesty the President" or "His High Mightiness" over the simple "President of the United States" that eventually won the debate. The pomposity of his stance, along with his being overweight, led to Adams earning the nickname "His Rotundity."
When Adams said "His High Mightiness" at least he was thinking of President Washington. What excuse do today's reporters have? Adams was thinking of the majesties of his youth--our press corps is seeking another Camelot of their youth. And when Adams was through, he simply walked out of the White House, got on a horse and rode back to his farm alone. He didn't even phone Bob Woodward.

Think of the recent Inauguration--or as the Heavenly Choir-Press calls it, "His Precious, Precious Ascension to the Orchid Throne".

The way the government wiretapped, surveilled and profiled for inaugural security was enough to make Dick Cheney's heart swell with pride, if only his doctors would allow it.

But ordinary Americans also want to be safe at their workplace, too, without being told that they're "shredding the Constitution". Nor do they wish to have their self-defense rights whittled away by those elites who have armed bodyguards, private police forces and gates on their communities, paid for by the taxpayers.

Speaking of taxpayers, here's Prof. Walter E. Williams:
Some smugglers are good people who differ little from the founders of our nation such as John Hancock, whose flamboyant signature graces our Declaration of Independence. The British had levied confiscatory taxes on molasses, and John Hancock smuggled an estimated 1.5 million gallons a year. His smuggling practices financed much of the resistance to British authority -- so much so that the joke of the time was that "Sam Adams writes the letters (to newspapers) and John Hancock pays the postage."
Jasmin K. Williams tells us more:

Hancock was in the business of importing and exporting goods. Britain's proposed Stamp Act would greatly restrict trade activities. Hancock became one of the most vehement protesters of Britain's taxation of colonial trade goods after his ship, Liberty, was seized for transporting contraband. As it became increasingly difficult to make a profit in trade due to Britain's unfair tax practices, Hancock began smuggling goods such as glass, lead, paper and tea into the colonies. In fact, it was Hancock's boycott of British tea that led to the famous Boston Tea Party. Hancock's merchant business and smuggling financed much of Boston's resistance movement.

The private financier became publicly critical. On March 5, 1774, Hancock gave a speech in which he condemned British rule.

Hancock's rebellious activities didn't go unnoticed by Britain, There was a bounty on his head and that of Tea Party organizer Samuel Adams. As it became clear that Britain was not going to give up its hold on the colonies without a fight, Hancock and Adams left Boston. The pair hid out in Lexington. During his famous midnight ride, Paul Revere roused the two, warning them that the British were coming and would be there at dawn for the Battle of Lexington and Concord.

The two escaped just at the British broke into the house where they had been hiding. British Gen. Thomas Gage demanded that the pair be arrested for treason. After the battle, a pardon was issued to anyone who swore loyalty to the British crown -except Hancock and Adams.
"Our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free,
but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty."

Our country was founded by tax-resisters like Hancock and Adams. The Sons of Liberty wanted EVERYBODY to enjoy the same tax cuts as they had.

But tax cheats like Geithner, Rangel, Sharpton and Daschle don't want to share their own Personal Tax Cuts with anybody else even though they are the guys who write the tax code. They love high taxes. For you. The battle cry of the Boston Tea Party was "No Taxation Without Representation!", not "No Taxation for Senators and Big Shots!"

Even though they all claim that they were confused ("Turbo-Tax made me do it!"), they don't want to simplify the tax code either. They also love the impenetrable nature of a 6,000 plus-page tax code. It let's them dole out favors and alter behaviors.

As Al Hamilton put it:

It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow.
On and on it goes:
*Elites volunteer other people's children to be discriminated against by Affirmative Action, while their own children are insulated.
*Our Neo-Royalty send their own children to private schools while working overtime to deny your children that same option.
*The Supreme Court ruled that Suzanne Kelo's home wasn't her castle, and gutted the Takings Clause, a provision first promulgated in the Magna Carta to stop royals from plundering the people.

As a conservative, I realize much of this is inherent in the crooked timber of humanity. But as an American, I'm with Tom Paine, who, before he went Commie, wrote this:

England since the conquest hath known some few good monarchs, but groaned beneath a much larger number of bad ones: yet no man in his senses can say that their claim under William the Conqueror is a very honourable one. A French bastard landing with an armed Banditti and establishing himself king of England against the consent of the natives, is in plain terms a very paltry rascally original. It certainly hath no divinity in it. However it is needless to spend much time in exposing the folly of hereditary right; if there are any so weak as to believe it, let them promiscuously worship the Ass and the Lion, and welcome. I shall neither copy their humility, nor disturb their devotion. ...

Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and others to obey, soon grow insolent. Selected from the rest of mankind, their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but little opportunity of knowing its true interests, and when they succeed in the government are frequently the most ignorant and unfit of any throughout the dominions. ...

The nearer any government approaches to a Republic, the less business there is for a King. ...For 'tis the Republican and not the Monarchical part of the Constitution of England which Englishmen glory in, viz. the liberty of choosing an House of Commons from out of their own body — and it is easy to see that when Republican virtues fail, slavery ensues. ...

In England a King hath little more to do than to make war and give away positions; which, in plain terms, is to empoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society, and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived.
We must decide; citizens...or subjects? The City on the Hill...or Serf City, USA?
"How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!"

The "Jenjis" Con: How Does A Man Become a War Hero in Two Countries?

Mark Steyn, Feb. 2004:

"Unfortunately, most politicians who say ''this election is about the future'' haven't given it a moment's thought. Say what you like about us right-wing war mongers, but after Sept. 11 we abandoned our long-cherished theories of realpolitik -- find your local strongman and shovel millions of dollars at him -- as inadequate, and indeed part of the problem. Sentimental liberal internationalism -- everything has to be done through the U.N., no matter how stinkingly corrupt and ineffectual it is -- is just as inadequate to the challenges of the age. Yet Kerry, John Edwards, Howard Dean and the rest of the left cling to it like a security blanket. Ask them anything about foreign policy, and they sing like the Von Trapp children, ''We need to get the U.N. in there.'' As Sam Goldwyn said, ''I'm sick of the old cliches. Bring me some new cliches.''" .......

While he kept saying ''this [2004] election is about the future", one almost expected Kerry to establish a Dept. of Bell-bottoms and vow to get to the bottom of Kent State. If he was an American war hero, he was one who applied for his own medal weekly until he got one--and according to Gen. Giap, he was a North Vietnamese war hero, too.

And now he's an Iranian war hero as well.

ObamaCare: Unmitigated Disaster, Abject Failure or Death-Spiral Debacle?

Your Choice!

"I was misquoted. I never told you that you could keep your doctor. I told Assad, Putin, the Ayatollah and Castro "If you like being dictator, you can keep being dictator."--Nurse B. Hussein Wretched

AP"[P]remiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services.

Moreover, about 1 in 5 consumers will only have plans from a single insurer to pick from, after major national carriers such as UnitedHealth Group, Humana and Aetna fled the crime scene like BLM looters scaled back their roles."

Hey, AP; having "a single insurer to pick from" is not a pick. It's not a choice when there are not more than one to choose from. That's a mandate, not an option.

Doctor Growin' Pain defends his CaponeCare in Miami:

"...a lot of the noise around the health care debate, ever since we tried to pass this law, has been nothing more than politics."

"We" didn't try to pass a law. For the very first time in American history, a major federal program was rammed through on a strict party-line vote, banana republic-style. Actually, to be accurate, it was in the style of Saul Alinsky, the communist agitator who was Obama's and Hillary's mentor. And in the style of Alinsky's mentor, Al Capone.

"So you’re getting better quality even though you don’t know that Obamacare is doing it. Thanks, Obama."

Translation: "You're too stupid to realize my greatness."

"So what’s the problem? Why is there still such a fuss? Well, part of the problem is the fact that a Democratic President named Barack Obama passed the law."

Translation: "God, I love talking about me. You don't oppose ObamaCare because of the runaway costs, the Big Brother coercion, the high deductibles that render it useless, the job-killing mandates or the lies I told you about keeping your doctor, keeping your plan and lowering costs. You oppose it because you're a bigot."

"They can even change the name of the law to ReaganCare. ...I don’t care about credit."

 Listen, Doc HolidayFromHistory;  Don't blame President Reagan for your ControlCare National Disgrace. It's all you and your degenerate party, Commie Boy.

We can't socialize the doctors without socializing the patients.”
