Resisting the "Resistance"

Dispatches from Deep inside Progressiville


"I learned to look for the subtle signs of a MAGA in my midst.  Anyone not randomly alluding to the American Armageddon in casual conversation, not re-laminating the Stronger Together bumper sticker to the family Prius, or not dressing their kids in old Obama HOPE t-shirts might be a stealth Trump supporter.  

One day at the beach, a crew of new friends and my family all suddenly stopped, sensing some ineluctable shift in social electricity.  We turned to each other for what seemed an eternity of apprehension – then threw caution to the wind and asked tentatively, "Wait, are you...did you...?"

Maybe it was that there, on the Pacific Coast, with the ocean at our backs like a corner table at an Italian mob restaurant, we felt safe enough to ask the question that could otherwise legitimize shunning in our community.  Once we had all unmasked ourselves and had our Come to Donald moment, the freedom to talk was like the euphoria of finding other people when you were young who were really into the same loud, weird, awesome band everyone else hated.

Under the tyranny of California sunshine that weather-shames you into always being outside, we found joy in hammering diaper-wearing lefties, pussy hat hypocrites, the fake news media, Empress Pantsuit, and Barry-O'Trojan Horse to our hearts' content.  Thereafter, we would seek each other out on the down-low – always in private – in an effort to find some time to speak freely about our president, Captain Middle Finger.  We formed a secret society of sorts, just to be able to talk openly about the president of the United States of America.".......

Bringin' the Heat

"There's no such thing as "sustainable" development. Human progress and individual liberty have advanced on the backs of one unsustainable development after another: When we needed trees for heating and transportation, we chopped 'em down. Then we discovered oil, and the trees grew back. When the oil runs out, we won't notice because our SUVs will be powered by something else. Bet on human ingenuity every time. We're not animals, and it's a cult as deranged as the screwiest fringe religion to insist we are. Earth's most valuable resource is us."--Mark Steyn, 'The Masses Have Amassed Too Much'

Stephen Moore:

"The shale gas revolution lowered the price of natural gas by about two-thirds (from $10 to $3 per million cubic feet). This, in turn, has meant big savings in electricity and home heating costs from where they were a decade ago. We calculated the benefits to poor households from these lower prices and estimated that shale gas results in $10 billion in consumer savings each year. The annual budget for the LIHEAP program is about $3 billion. So shale gas is saving poor families three times what LIHEAP does. ...

Home heating and electric bills would be much cheaper still for poor families without the so-called renewable-energy standards pushed by greens and liberal politicians at the state and local levels. The Manhattan Institute has found that states with these wind and solar mandates have had much larger hikes in utility costs than states without them. New York, which is revving up its green energy policies, charges its residents 40 percent more for electric power than the national average. ...

How can a nation with massive deposits of very cheap natural gas -- such as the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania and West Virginia -- be importing natural gas?

One reason is that we don't have pipelines to inexpensively transport the natural gas to the Northeast. Environmentalists who hate oil and gas have spent years blocking this vital infrastructure -- not just the Keystone Pipeline but also many other pipelines that should be transporting shale oil and gas efficiently across the country. It doesn't seem to bother the green groups that the biggest victims of anti-fossil fuel policies are low- and middle-income Americans. Never has.

Environmentalism is effectively a regressive tax on America's poorest households, imposed upon them by liberal politicians and the rich liberals who fund them, such as Democratic donor-extraordinaire Tom Steyer.".......

The Criminal Coup by the Obama National Security Apparatus: A Summary

Bigger Than Watergate

"There is no crime. The establishment is simply offended that Trump won. They are offended that they haven’t been able to stop him. They’re offended and bothered they weren’t able to stop him. They’re offended each day that he’s still there. They’re offended that he tweets. They’re offended that he’s enjoying himself. They’re offended that he gets away with everything they’ve thrown at him. They’re offended his tax cuts are working. They’re offended that he dared attack Obamacare. They are offended that he continues to attack Crooked Hillary, Crazy Bernie. They’re offended, they’re offended, they can’t stand it, and the objective is to get rid of this guy no matter what else. And they’re not going to stop."--Rush Limbaugh

I don't usually like to reprint entire posts or nearly so, but this is such a concise exposition of the workings of the Deep State to subvert our electoral system that it needs to be widely known and understood.

It does not include every last detail of the conspiracy, such as the Tarmac Coup Meeting, the DOJ sending Veselnitskya to Trump Tower or how Carter Page mysteriously went from being an FBI asset in the Spring to a "Russian agent" in the Fall--all to justify wiretapping and framing the Trumps. Nor does it address how the Mueller Fraud is basically a continuation of the subversion, designed to impeach Trump and protect Obama from criminal charges.

However, it succinctly catalogues the Deep State's Mechanics of Mutiny against America.

Conservative Treehouse:

"Here’s the basic overview of how all those threads come together to paint a picture.
The FBI group was participating in a plan to exonerate Hillary Clinton. That same FBI group was simultaneously conducting opposition research on candidate Donald Trump and the larger construct of his campaign team. Those FBI officials were allied by entities outside official government structures. The ‘outside group’ were “contractors”. It is likely one of the contractors was Fusion-GPS or entities in contact with Fusion-GPS. {Go Deep}
The contractors were using FBI intelligence databases to conduct opposition research “searches” on Trump campaign officials. This is where the use of FISA-702(16)(17) “To/From” and “About” queries comes in. {Go Deep}  This FISA abuse was the allowed but unofficial process identified in early 2016 by NSA internal auditors.
This is where NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers steps in on April 18th, 2016, and stops the FBI contractors from having any further access. {Go Deep}
No longer having access to the FBI intelligence database the group needed a workaround. That’s where DOJ official Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie Ohr come into play. {Go Deep}
The DOJ side of the operation was conducted within the National Security Division (John P Carlin head). {Go Deep} The DOJ-NSD could use the NSA/FBI database and pass information to, and receive information from, Nellie Ohr. Nellie was hired by Fusion-GPS immediately after Admiral Rogers shut down the FBI ‘contractor’ use of the system. Nellie would be the go-between.
The problem was that any information from within the FISA searches could not be directly used by the FBI because they would likely have to explain how they gained it and all search queries were illegal. This is where Fusion-GPS hires the retired British MI6 officer Christopher Steele.  The FBI needed to launder the intelligence product:
Chris Steele would be the laundry for the intelligence information pulled from the U.S. system. Unauthorized FISA-702(16)(17) results were passed on to Christopher Steele, likely by Nellie Ohr. Steele would then wash the intelligence product, repackage it into what became known as his “Dossier”, and pass it back to the FBI ‘small group’ as evidence for use in their counterintelligence operation which began in July 2016 [ intentionally without congressional oversight {Go Deep}].
Evidence of this laundry process is found in a significant “search query” result that was actually a mistake. The faulty intelligence mistake was the travel history of Michael Cohen, a long-time Trump lawyer. The FISA search turned up a Michael Cohen traveling to Prague. It was the wrong Michael Cohen. However, that mistaken result was passed on to Chris Steele and it made its way into the dossier. Absent of a FISA search, there’s no other way Christopher Steele could identify a random “Michael Cohen” traveling to Prague.
The Cohen mistake created a trail from Chris Steele to the FISA database.  {Go Deep}
All of the unauthorized FISA-702 search queries, “To From”(16) and/or “About”(17), of the NSA/FBI database were returning results. Those results were “raw intelligence”.
That raw intelligence needed “unmasking”, that’s where the Department of State (DoS) comes in. The U.N. Ambassador is part of the DoS. Samantha Power stated she wasn’t doing the daily “unmasking” identified by the House Intelligence Committee investigation {Go Deep}. Someone, or a group of people, within the State Department, were doing unmasking requests – presumably using Ms. Power’s authority.
The collaborative process by officials within the State Department, as outlined and supported by Senator Chuck Grassley and his investigation, explains why those officials were also communicating with Christopher Steele. {Go Deep}
The assembled but highly compartmentalized reports from the DOJ-NSD, FBI-Counterintelligence, Department of State, Office of National Intelligence (Clapper) and CIA (Brennan), was then constructed to become part of President Obama’s Daily Intelligence Briefing. That’s where National Security Adviser Susan Rice comes in and her frequent unmasking of the assembled intelligence product. {Go Deep}
The Obama PDB was then redistributed internally to more than three dozen administration officials who POTUS Obama allowed to access his PDB.  This includes the heads of DOJ, DOJ-NSD, FBI, FBI-counterintel, CIA, DoS, ODNI, NSA and Pentagon.
The distribution of the PDB was how each disparate member of the administration, the larger intelligence apparatus, knew of the ongoing big picture without having to assemble together for direct discussion therein. That’s Lisa Monaco and “Operation Latitude”:
Additionally, remember this from the FBI?
January 31st, 2018, […] “With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it. As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”
FBI Asst. Director Michael Kortan (aka text message “Mike”), the head of the FBI Public Affairs Office was the one who wrote it.  Kortan was part of the scheme team.  FBI Director Christopher Wray fired him the following week.  {Go Deep}".......

The kicker is from the Zman:

"Then there is the one story that has never made any sense. That is the case of Judge Roberts reversing course in the ObamaCare decision. He writes an opinion striking down the individual mandate, circulates it around and then suddenly changes course and supports the mandate. It was a such a bizarre turn of events that the dissent just used his brief as the basis of the dissenting opinion. People who investigate blackmail and extortion schemes look for these sorts of anomalous changes in behavior.".......

Not to mention the second ObamaCare case, in which the Court had to make plain words mean the opposite of what they mean in order to continue the illegal funding, rather than just sending the law back to Congress, which is how it is supposed to work.

We know that Obama wiretapped reporters, Congress and our allies to get his Number One Goal of the Iran Deal. Justice Scalia believed the Court was also surveilled.

Would Obama wiretap and blackmail to achieve his Number Two Goal?

To ask is to answer.
 
UPDATE: "Chairman Nunes reminds everyone of two key points: #1) the FBI and DOJ have to own up to what happened, regardless of consequence, and then commit to structural reform; and #2) the vast majority of U.S. media participated in the conspiracy through their participation with the Clinton-Steele Dossier and promotion of leaks from ideologues within the intelligence community. Therefore the same media cannot be expected to expose the corruption they helped create.".......

Turks, Old and New, Here and There

Fez On, Fez Off

Turkish/Western relations then, as catalogued in the documentary film
"From Russia, With Uranium". 
Turkish/Western relations now, size 10 & 1/2 B
 
Spengler: "After its painful experience in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. won’t put boots on the ground beyond the few thousand special forces now deployed in Syria. The Kurds fought as a NATO auxiliary against ISIS and wanted nothing more than an American alliance. The Turks, meanwhile, are NATO members in name only and are hostile to key American interests. Among other things, Turkey is helping Russia to bypass Ukraine in delivering gas to southern Europe via the Turkstream pipeline. The Turks are bargaining hard with Russia, but ultimately will play ball.
 
Nonetheless, Washington is paralyzed by fear that Turkey might leave NATO if it stands behind the Kurds. “Nobody wants to be the guy who lost Turkey,” an administration official said. ...
 
For Washington, the path of least resistance was to use the Kurds to fend off ISIS and then hang them out to dry. That left the Kurds with no other choice but to turn to the Assad government and its Russian backers. As a result, Russia is now the key ally both of the Assad government and the Kurdish militias that the U.S. envisioned as its boots on the ground in the region. ...
 
The projected Kurdish Border Protection Force was the last American piece on the Syrian chessboard, and Washington abandoned it. It is hard to see what sort of leverage the United States can acquire now.
 
Americans play Monopoly, Russians chess,” was the title of an essay I published ten years ago in this space. For the U.S. administration, American assets in the region are like hotels on the Monopoly board, to be protected individually and piecemeal. No unified strategy ranks their relative importance or gauges whether they might be sacrificed for a larger goal. Russia views its assets as pieces on a chessboard whose only function is to contribute to the single goal of winning the game. They can be sacrificed ruthlessly when circumstances require it. Washington has no strategy -- that is, no envisioned end state -- for Turkey, Syria, or Iran. And if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.".......
"My pet."
Washington D.C. may be "paralyzed by fear", but President Trump is not. The only one who "lost Turkey" is the dictator who has reversed Attaturk's democratization of Turkey. We shouldn't abandon our Kurdish allies for any tin-horn bully. Beware the Blob, sir.

Gunning for Control: The Conspiracy Theorized

“Mr. Bond, they have a saying in Chicago: 'Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it's enemy action.'"--Auric Husseinfinger


I never really bought into conspiracy theories.

Talk of the Tri-Lateral Commission, Bilderburgers with Fries or Dick Cheney scaling the Twin Towers like Spiderman to plant bombs all make my eyes glaze over like melting steel.

But Parkland stinks.

Las Vegas stinks.

Charlottesville stinks.

And Fast and Furious stinks.

Not to mention the shooters at Ft. Hood, the Orlando nightclub, the Boston Marathon and Garland, Texas were all known to the FBI. And just like this shooter, all were allowed to operate with impunity.

I don't mean to go all Mel Gibsonish "Conspiracy Theory" on you, Sugartits, but this is all starting to look and smell like one big project to gut the Second Amendment and disarm the American people. 
...or did they fail for other reasons?
We know for a fact that Fast and Furious was an anti-gun, anti-NRA Black Op that boomeranged on the Obama Justice Department (as did Obama Justice Department's Sanctuary School program at Parkland).

We also know for a fact that the Obama/Clinton Deep State just tried to criminally rig the last election. That's a conspiracy of monumental proportion, even if the News Molesters are dedicated to burying the story.

Are we supposed to think that they would attempt a coup--but that's where they draw the line; they would never stage or allow an agit-prop event in which people, especially students, got killed? Newsflash: that's exactly what the Bill Ayers-gang did at Kent State.

Fast and Furious was designed to institute Gun Control.  It got Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry killed. When el Chapo was finally caught, he still had a Holder .50 caliber machine gun. Why wouldn't they continue to create other scenarios for anti-gun agitation? Because they're too principled? Please. They have proven that Power is their only Principle.

Ohr's involved again. Brennan is agitating again. Barry just told young activists "We've been waiting for you." I'll bet you have. Has there ever been a Communist coup-plotter who didn't want to disarm the general public?

Call me crazy if you want. Paranoid. Partisan. I don't care. I never thought I'd see our Media go full-Pravda. And I really never would have believed that I would see the day when the entire National Security Apparatus would wiretap and attempt to frame a presidential candidate.

But it happened.

Ronald Reagan once said "Don't be afraid to see what you see." He faced down the Hollywood Communists in his own neighborhood, and then around the world. Then, as now, lot of people were invested in hiding the truth. But he saw it clearly.

Pres. Reagan: "I know of no leader of the Soviet Union since the revolution, and including the present leadership, that has not more than once repeated in the various Communist congresses they hold their determination that their goal must be the promotion of world revolution and a one-world Socialist or Communist state, whichever word you want to use. ...They...have openly and publicly declared that the only morality they recognize is what will further their cause, meaning they reserve unto themselves the right to commit any crime, to lie, to cheat, in order to attain that, and that is moral, not immoral, and we operate on a different set of standards..."

But even Reagan couldn't have known that we would install a crypto-Communist, an Islamuninist, if you will, in the Oval Office in 2008. 
Now it's our turn to "see what we see."

"Forget it Jake; It's Browardtown."

The Browardly Lions 

All Politics, All the Time: "A log of employees hired by the sheriff shows 10 workers were hired since 2013 into "outreach'' roles, their salaries totalling $634,479. The unit is embedded into a $2.4 million community services division. When the budget year closes out in October, the outreach team expects to have made contact with 320,000 people, budget documents say. The outreach workers, who mainly attend community events, are in addition to political activists and others Israel hired into community affairs roles, writing and designing printed pieces about the agency, and sharing it on social media. The employee log shows six hired into community affairs roles, their salaries totaling $388,729. Israel's opponents say he's built a publicly funded political machine, paying back supporters with jobs and using them to keep him in office. They say the money could be better spent, particularly after the sheriff complained about not having enough funding to secure the county courthouse, where a murder suspect recently escaped.".......
Those four Broward sheriffs hiding under their cars at the school just didn't want to be the first authorities at any agency to do their jobs.

Sanctuary School Shooting

"This looks exactly like your average left-wing Democrat Party protest march, movement, event, what have you. Because it is."--Rush Limbaugh 

“Mr. Cruz stated he plans to go out and buy a gun. It is unknown what he is buying the gun for.”--Florida’s Department of Children and Families, investigating a violent, depressed, autistic, gun-waving mental patient 

Every level of government failed in Florida. The School Board, the Sheriff's Dept., Child Services, the FBI--they all failed. Any one of them could have prevented this shooting had they taken action. 

None of them wanted to do the paperwork.

The School board didn't use the law.
The Sheriff's Dept. didn't use the law
Child Services didn't use the law.
The FBI didn't use the law.

Nobody used the laws we already have--so let's pass some new laws!

This wasn't a Gun Control failure. It was a Government failure.

These kids are being used--and used by the same people who endangered them in the first place.

Instead of going to Tallahassee and blaming the NRA, the students should be in the principal's office, at the School Board meeting, at the Dept. of Children and Families, at the Sheriff's Office and at the FBI. Every single level of government coddled or ignored this shooter.

But they're not old enough to figure that out. That's why they make great patsies.

The School Board wasn't just neglecting the law--they were actively suppressing arrests and even hiding crimes.

They thought they were ending the "School-to-Prison pipeline"--but they were actually guaranteeing it.

Not to mention the School-to-Cemetery pipeline.

No wonder the School Board paid for the buses to Tallahassee. They wanted to use those kids to blame somebody else for their own deadly failures.
The Army is recognizing Peter Wang, 15, from left, and Alaina Petty and Martin Duque, both 14, with the Medal of Heroism for the danger and extraordinary responsibility they took on during last week's school shooting. (Roger Lee / 21st Century Photography)

Washington's Legacy at Stake

Washington and Nemesis
Dr. Spalding: "James Flexner, George Washington's greatest biographer, called him the "indispensable man" of the American Founding. Without Washington, America would never have won our War of Independence. He played the central role in the Constitutional Convention and, as our first President, set the precedents that define what it means to be a constitutional executive: strong and energetic, aware of the limits of authority but guarding the prerogatives of office.

Washington not only rejected offers to make him king, but was one of the first leaders in world history to relinquish power voluntarily. His peaceful transfer of the presidency to John Adams in 1797 inaugurated one of America's greatest democratic traditions.".......

That peaceful transfer of power may have been Washington's greatest accomplishment. Even King George said "If he does that, he will be the greatest man in the world."

And that is exactly what the Obama/Clinton Deep State Coup tried to thwart. And is still trying, through their fraud Mueller and his crack team of Hillary Donors.

Don Surber:

"The Democratic Party, mainstream media, and thousands of political operatives in our federal government have spent the past year-plus sabotaging the peaceful transfer of power.

They seek to undermine our republic by replacing our elective process with a permanent bureaucracy of elitists controlled by Democrats, regardless of whom we elect. This is the government Patrick Henry feared, and James Madison tried to prevent.".......


 "...Cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”  
The people who plotted this coup attempt now want to disarm Americans:

The CIA Coup-Plotter Brennan: "It is imperative that we devote equal energy and effort to addressing the scourge of gun violence in our country. Congress needs to act now to prevent access to semiautomatic weapons that kill innocents."

Sean Davis: "You supported communists, you spied on Congress, you spied on us, and now you want to take away our right to defend ourselves from people like you? No."

That's what is at stake.


"Brothers, I am a Warrior."

Happy Washington's Birthday!

Except You Already Missed It
(From the Archives, 2006)

Because as most of you don't know, Washington was born not on Feb. 22, but on Feb. 11, 1732.

The Old Farmer's Almanac explains:

"During Washington's lifetime, people in Great Britain and America switched from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar (something most of Europe had done in 1582). As a result of this calendar reform, people born before 1752 were told to add 11 days to their birth dates. Those born between January 1 and March 25, as Washington was, also had to add one year to be in sync with the new calendar. By the time Washington became president in 1789, he celebrated his birthday on February 22 and listed his year of birth as 1732."

(Some London merchants also tried to avoid paying taxes for sales on those "missing" days.)

Nor is it actually "President's Day". Matthew Spalding explains:

"Although it was celebrated as early as 1778, and by the early 19th century was second only to the Fourth of July as a patriotic holiday, Congress did not officially recognize Washington's Birthday as a national holiday until 1870. The Monday Holiday Law in 1968--applied to executive branch departments and agencies by Richard Nixon's Executive Order 11582 in 1971--moved the holiday from February 22 to the third Monday in February. Section 6103 of Title 5, United States Code, currently designates that legal federal holiday as "Washington's Birthday." Contrary to popular opinion, no action by Congress or order by any President has changed "Washington's Birthday" to "President's Day.""

"Several times, legislators have introduced legislation to direct all federal government entities to refer to the holiday as George Washington's Birthday. Better yet: the President could issue an executive order that, in one stroke of the pen, would not only enforce the law, but also remind all Americans that this George W - George Washington, that is - still deserves to be "first in the hearts of his countrymen.""

Parahrasing, of course, the eulogy written by John Marshall and delivered by Gen. Henry Lee:

"[...] Moving in his own orbit he imparted heat and light to his most distant satellites; and, combining the physical and moral force of all within his sphere, with irresistible weight he took his course, commiserating folly, disdaining vice, dismaying treason, and invigorating despondency; until the auspicious hour arrived when, united with the intrepid forces of a potent and magnanimous ally, he brought to submission the since conqueror of India; thus finishing his long career of military glory with the luster corresponding to his great name, and in this, his last act of war, affixing the seal of fate to our nation’s birth.

To the horrid din of battle sweet peace succeeded; and our virtuous chief, mindful only of the common good, in a moment of tempting personal aggrandizement hushed the discontents of growing sedition, and surrendering his power into the hands from which he had received it, converted his sword into a plowshare, teaching an admiring world that to be truly great you must be truly good.

Were I to stop here the picture would be incomplete and the task imposed unfinished. Great as was our Washington in war, and as much as did that greatness contribute to produce the American republic, it is not in war alone his pre-eminence stands conspicuous. His various talents, combining all the capacities of a statesman with those of a soldier, fitted him alike to guide the councils and the armies of our nation. Scarcely had he rested from his martial toils, while his invaluable parental advice was still sounding in our ears, when he who had been our shield and our sword was called forth to act a less splendid but more important part.

Possessing a clear and penetrating mind, a strong and sound judgment, calmness and temper for deliberation, with invincible firmness and perseverance in resolutions maturely formed; drawing information from all; acting from himself with incorruptible integrity and unvarying patriotism; his own superiority and the public confidence alike marked him as the man designed by heaven to lead in the great political as well as military events which have distinguished the era of his life. [...]

First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen, he was second to one in the humble and endearing scenes of private life. Pious, just, humane, temperate, and sincere; uniform, dignified, and commanding, his example was as edifying to all around him as were the effects of that example lasting.

To his equals he was condescending; to his inferiors kind; and to the dear object of his affections exemplarily tender. Correct throughout, vice shuddered in his presence and virtue always felt his fostering hand; the purity of his private character gave effulgence to his public virtues."........


Lincoln on Washington:

"Washington is the mightiest name on earth — long since mightiest in the cause of civil liberty; still mightiest in moral reformation. On that name, an eulogy is expected. It cannot be. To add brightness to the sun, or glory to the name of Washington, is alike impossible. Let none attempt it. In solemn awe pronounce the name, and in its naked deathless splendor, leave it shining on.".......
We should be grateful to both Washington and Lincoln. Except today, they would be called FISA-criminals.

Washington's sentries used profiling to capture the British spy Major Andre. When they searched him without a warrant, they found the letters of the totally innocent American Benedict Arnold, thus violating Mr. Arnold's Right to collaborate with the enemy. Not only that, but Washington convened a military tribunal and promptly hanged Maj. Andre by the neck until dead, despite Hamilton's plea for mercy. If only there was an International Criminal Tribunal then, Maj. Andre would still be alive and in opening arguments today.

Likewise, Pres. Lincoln suspended habeas corpus, wiretapped the telegraph lines, opened mail and wisely threw seditious Democrat newspaper editors in jail.

Happy President's Day, Pinch!


 
His Farewell Address, September 19, 1796: "The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their Constitutions of Government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, 'till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole People is sacredly obligatory upon all." 

Bill and Hillary, John and Tony Podesta: They Were All on Putin's Payroll

And Obama Let the Russians Hack the Executive Branch With Impunity

That was because he needed Putin's help with the Iran Deal. Rescuing the Mullahs and showering them with cash and nukes was the very reason Obama ran for president.

It's worth remembering that all the Russian Interference and Collusion that Mueller is "investigating" took place during the Obama Administration.

From 2016, Powerline: Remember When the Russians Hacked the White House’s Computers?

"You probably don’t. We broke the story on Power Line in October 2014, writing about it here, here, here, here, here and here. The White House’s computers were down for weeks because of the intrusion by a “foreign power,” which the administration finally identified as Russia. It wasn’t just the White House, either; it was the entire Executive Office of the President, which comprises a good chunk of the executive branch. Nor was that all: the State Department’s computer system was hacked, too.
While we pounded away at the story, the White House refused to respond to our inquiries. The Washington press corps, which must have known that the White House’s computers were out of action, maintained a discreet silence, declining to write about the Russian hack, even though many D.C. reporters no doubt followed the story on Power Line. Why the coy silence? Because it was October 2014, weeks before the midterm elections, and the story reflected poorly on the Obama administration, which didn’t even discover the intrusion itself. It turned out that American officials were alerted to the Russian hack of the White House and State Department by an unidentified ally (I’m guessing Israel).
Only when the election was safely over did news outlets like CNN report the story (“How the U.S. thinks Russians hacked the White House”). Throughout, the Obama administration minimized the story, claiming that no harm was done and only unclassified material was accessed–an excuse that, as CNN wrote post-election, “belies the seriousness of the intrusion.”
Now, the same news outlets that refused to cover the Russian government’s hacking into White House and State Department computers and email systems try to tell us that an intrusion into Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s and John Podesta’s email accounts by someone–allegedly the same Russian government–is a story of world-historical importance. What a load of bulls–t.".......

Indeed.

Bill giving half-million dollar-speeches at Moscow banks. Hillary raking in millions and millions at the Foundation off the Uranium One Deal. Tony Podesta's unregistered lobbying for SberBank. John Podesta, Putin's business partner in Joule Energy. And Obama, "more flexible after the election"; as James Woods put it, "Obama was pushed around like a hotel vacuum cleaner." Come to think of it though, he didn't have to pushed.

Ya know, I'd be happy to let all this go and put the Worst Presidency in American History all behind us and move on. But, alas, the conspirators have to keep up the same old lies in order to cover up the previous same old lies. So be it.

From Treehouse:
"...Much of the information Mueller published on Friday about the agency’s efforts to influence the election had already been published last October — in an article by a Russian business magazine, RBC."
It's beyond ridicule, isn't it?

On the bright side however, it takes me back to my misspent youth, reading MAD Magazine. Little did we know back then it would one day become the Operating Manual for the Deep State.
Whatever Russia did to subvert our elections pales in comparison
to the crimes committed by the Obama/Clinton Cockroach Coup.

Poll Any Czech! Check Any Pole!: Ledecka Wins!

Message to NBC: Just Like Election Night, Don't Assume!

World Champion Snowboarder Ester Ledecka of the Czech Republic is now a World Champion skier as well.

After American Lindsey Vonn fouled out, NBC anointed Austria's Anna Veith the Super-G winner and cut away to men's figure skating--it figures.

That's when 19th-placed Ledecka came in .01 seconds ahead of everyone, on skis borrowed from American Gold Medalist Mikaela Shiffrin, who did not compete.

Broward County Needs Another Rule Change: Stat

Another Obama-Based Tragedy From the DOJ's Phony Statistics Desk

In 2013, the Broward County School Board, the Teachers Union, the NAACP, law enforcement, politicians and the Diversity Board entered a Holder/Lynch-style agreement to change the rules about school arrests due to concerns over disparate impact on minorities.

The New York Times did the cheerleading:

"FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Faced with mounting evidence that get-tough policies in schools are leading to arrest records, low academic achievement and high dropout rates that especially affect minority students, cities and school districts around the country are rethinking their approach to minor offenses.
Perhaps nowhere has the shift been more pronounced than in Broward County’s public schools. Two years ago, the school district achieved an ignominious Florida record: More students were arrested on school campuses here than in any other state district, the vast majority for misdemeanors like possessing marijuana or spraying graffiti.
The Florida district, the sixth largest in the nation, was far from an outlier. In the past two decades, schools around the country have seen suspensions, expulsions and arrests for minor nonviolent offenses climb together with the number of police officers stationed at schools. The policy, called zero tolerance, first grew out of the war on drugs in the 1990s and became more aggressive in the wake of school shootings like the one at Columbine High School in Colorado.
But in November, Broward veered in a different direction, joining other large school districts, including Los Angeles, Baltimore, Chicago and Denver, in backing away from the get-tough approach.
Rather than push children out of school, districts like Broward are now doing the opposite: choosing to keep lawbreaking students in school, away from trouble on the streets, and offering them counseling and other assistance aimed at changing behavior.
These alternative efforts are increasingly supported, sometimes even led, by state juvenile justice directors, judges and police officers.
In Broward, which had more than 1,000 arrests in the 2011 school year, the school district entered into a wide-ranging agreement last month with local law enforcement, the juvenile justice department and civil rights groups like the N.A.A.C.P. to overhaul its disciplinary policies and de-emphasize punishment. ...
Pressure to change has come from the Obama administration, too. Beginning in 2009, the Department of Justice and the Department of Education aggressively began to encourage schools to think twice before arresting and pushing children out of school. In some cases, as in Meridian, Miss., the federal government has sued to force change in schools.
“It’s a political movement by civil rights organizations that have targeted school police,” Mr. Trump said. “If you politicize this on either side, it’s not going to help on the front lines.”
Supporters, though, emphasize the flexibility in these new policies and stress that they do not apply to students who commit felonies or pose a danger. ...
In Broward County, the shift has shown immediate results, although it is too early to predict overall success.".......

They removed "threats" from the list of arrestable offenses. Here is the PDF agreement.

Somebody needs to ask this sheriff if his office still supports that rule change. I can understand taking graffiti vandals or pot-smokers off the list--but threats of violence at school should have never been removed. "If you see something, say something" was in effect pre-emptively banned for race-based political correctness.

Had Cruz been arrested for threats or fighting or bringing bullets on campus, he might have been prohibited from buying weapons. Not to mention the two three dozen calls made to local law enforcement for domestic disturbances. An arrest also might have shown up when the FBI went not looking for "nikolas cruz professional school shooter".

In fairness to the FBI, they were pretty busy picking our president for us. That's what happens when the Perma-Blob knows they cannot be fired. They do what they shouldn't while failing to do what they should.

Forget the Left's bogus reading of racial stats--they shouldn't drive fundamental public safety concerns here. It is an article of religious faith with them that all groups misbehave in exact proportion to their numbers--and any disparities are therefore because The Man is biased. It's pure fantasy, but that's their religion.

We need a system so the State of Florida can keep a mentally-ill Nikolas Cruz from getting a gun instead of the system we have: the one where the Deep State decides for us that Donald Trump isn't mentally-fit to obtain the presidency.

But this was a local policy failure, too. Broward County needs to revisit this. Yesterday.
Brandishing a weapon. Suicide attempts live on snapchat. 39 visits from police.
No arrests. Why? 
 

Bob Mueller's Macedonian Content Farm Subsidies

What a Joke

Where's the indictment for the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskya? Can't indict her--she was sent to Trump Tower by Lorreta Lynch.

Where's the indictment for "Russian agent" Carter Page, aka "Lifelong Democrat"? Can't indict him--he was sent to Trump Campaign Headquarters by Jim Comey.

But a "Trump campaign official unwittingly assisted"-- in other words, a campaign volunteer gave someone a yard sign. A year of this bullshit for a yard sign.

I think Mueller is trying to exit gracefully before the shit hits the fan and the real election-tamperers are charged. And by "gracefully", I mean without being criminally-charged himself.

Of Course They Did

"President Donald Trump, accompanied by First-Lady Melania Trump, traveled to Broward Health North Hospital in Pompano Beach, Florida, to visit some of the shooting victims from Marjory Stoneman High School and thank the doctors, medical staff and first responders. President Trump delivered brief remarks to the traveling press pool while colluding with Dr. Igor Nichiporenko and discussing the hospital’s efforts."

And the Gold Medal for Kissing Up to Dictators Goes To...the American Media! Again!

Another World-Class Disgraceful Performance by the Reliables

Like Grandfather, Like Grandkids:
Here, Il-Sung and Stalin discuss Sung's plan to dominate the Olympic Limbo competition
by making North Koreans three inches shorter than South Koreans due to poor diet.
This is celebrated every year on National Tree Bark Day.
Some excerpts from PJM's American Media Can't Stop Gushing About the North Korean 'Charm Offensive' at the Olympics:

"ABC: North Korea's 200-plus cheerleaders steal spotlight at 2018 Winter Olympics with matching outfits, synchronized chants.

CNN: "Kim Jong Un's sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics."

NYT: "Without a word, only flashing smiles, Kim Jong-un's sister outflanked Vice President Mike Pence in diplomacy."
 
Joe Concha: Just a reminder that Kim Jong-un's sister literally heads the Department of Propaganda and Agitation. The Soviets called it Agitprop. The NY Times & other outlets are providing North Korea, with this fawning coverage, more than it could have ever dreamed of. We've lost our minds.
 
Razor: Last week: Trump wants a military parade like a dictator!

This week: The admirable precision of North Korea's cheerleaders will warm your heart!"
.......
 
Iowahawk said what I was thinking--or what I wish I was thinking. He does that a lot:

David Burge @iowahawkblog                    
Hitler's It Girl Eva Braun Wows Swells at 1936 Olympics

I don't expect the #FakeNews Media to bash the North Koreans during the Olympics. But do they have to participate in organized cheerleading for the regime as if they were North Korean athletes?

Reuters: "Head held high, Kim's sister returns to North Korea  

Iowahawk: "Whose head was it?"

Reuters continued: "A prim, young woman with a high forehead and hair half swept back quietly gazes at the throngs of people pushing for a glimpse of her, a faint smile on her lips..." Oh, get a room, people.

The News Molesters bash Trump as a proto-dictator every day--but when confronted with the actual thing, they folded quicker than a Two-Dollar Tijuana hooker on roofies.

Without the hooker's quiet dignity.

Or two dollars.

"Meanwhile, a columnist with the Democracy Dies In Darkness Post is demanding apologies on behalf of the monsters who run North Korea's slave camps."

You would never know that Kim Yo-jong is Director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of the Workers' Party of Korea. If we had a real press corps, they could at least mention how her Mob Family-With-a-Flag eats well while the country's workers are half-starved--the lucky ones, anyway.

"Dirt: It's What's For Dinner!"

In Soviet Russia, when someone said "I read it in the papers.", it meant it was a lie.

Now we know how they felt.

GOPe Seizes Budget Defeat From the Jaws of Victory: They've Gotten Used to Losing--and They Like It!

What the Hell Happened to Paul Ryan?

"Public servants say, always with the best of intentions, "What greater service we could render if only we had a little more money and a little more power." But the truth is that outside of its legitimate function, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector." --Ronald Reagan, October 27, 1964

"I always feel sorry for a political party when it's their turn to pretend to be deficit hawks."--IowaHawk
Ryan used to be a budget hawk, according to the legend. I guess he was budget hawk just like John McCain was "leading the fight to Repeal and Replace ObamaCare!". John Boehner could have done better than this!

Washington Times:

"Rep. Jim Jordan says the swamp struck back with the passage of a massive budget deal that increases government spending by $300 billion.

“I’m saying the swamp won and the American taxpayer lost,” Mr. Jordan, co-founder of the House Freedom Caucus, said on “Fox News Sunday.”

The Ohio Republican said fiscal conservatives were poised to reduce government spending this time around, but Republican leadership caved despite having majorities in each house of Congress.

He said Washington did what it always does: “spend more on everything,” “grow government” and “give in to the Democrats,” instead of fighting for “what the people elected us to do.’”".......

It's not just the money--it's the freedom. When government grows, freedom shrinks.

Rick Moran:
 
"Conservatives in Congress and in the hinterlands are bitterly complaining about the massive insult to fiscal sanity the budget deal passed on Thursday morning represents.
Even worse, some Republicans are offended by the pushback. Their target is Senator Rand Paul who, almost alone, tried to stand in the way of the budget deal in the Senate.
GOP political analyst Susan Del Percio said on MSNBC that it was the day "the tea party died."
What remains of the tea party is, to my mind, the best part. The desire of ordinary people to govern themselves, to take personal responsibility for their own lives, and to try to do something about the denigration and increasing irrelevance of the Constitution.
If that spirit ever dies, America dies.".......

It's way past time to primary these Big Government RINOs and replace Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell with real conservative leaders. They had their chance to present the president with a reasonably conservative budget--and they blew it. Big Time.
“You can’t be for big government, big taxes, and big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy.”
