Things the media is choosing not to report

As the Christine Blasey Ford drama sucks all the air out of the room, there are some things the media is either lightly reporting or ignoring outright.  These would be huge “stop the presses” moments if it were about Republicans.  It involves blatant racism, domestic abuse, and international intrigue.  But it doesn’t look good for Democrats and we are within two months of an election.

  1. Beto O’Rourke tells a black student that we need cheap, illegal labor because no one else will pick cotton.

The media is simply ignoring this one.  At a town hall on Wednesday, Beto O’Rourke was asked by a black student about his policy towards illegal immigrants.  Specifically, the student asked him if illegal immigrants should be granted citizenship and American-paid benefits even though they came here voluntarily without following our laws.  Beto first compared illegal immigrants sneaking in to the country to black slaves being brought here against their will.

Beto went on to tell how the manager of a cotton gin he went to visit said people born here in the US won’t take jobs working for him anymore, and that’s why we need to import “immigrants” from Central America and Mexico to help our economy.  It’s the exact same argument southern Democrats used for why we needed slavery in the first place.  Even more disturbing, he is literally telling this black student that we need illegal immigrants because blacks won’t pick cotton anymore.  Not a peep from the media.  Here’s the video:

 

2. Keith Ellison abused his girlfriend

While Democrats are making the argument that Brett Kavanaugh is not qualified to serve because of an accusation that 36 years ago he as a teenager touched another teenager over her clothes, the media is not spending too much time on credible accusations of domestic violence against Keith Ellison.  Ellison’s girlfriend has now posted medical records detailing the abuse.  But rather than seeing an outcry of #metoo support, the NYT headline is simply that Ellison denies allegations of abuse.

If Christine Blasey Ford is to be believed, isn’t Karen Monahan?  There have been the typical 11th page acknowledgements, but other than that, Representative Ellison’s physical abuse of his girlfriend has been a big yawn for the media.  No one in Hollywood who has come out in blind support of Ford has asked for Ellison’s resignation either.

3. Christine Blasey Ford is 0-3 on the witness count

This is another one that has received light coverage.  Christine Blasey Ford has named other people who were at the party where she was allegedly groped by Kavanaugh.  So far three who have responded, including Ford’s lifelong friend  Leland Keyser, have said Kavanaugh wasn’t there.  None have placed him at any party ever with Ford.  Leland Keyser, who told the Washington Post she believed her friend, wrote to the Judiciary Committee that she had never been at a party or gathering with Kavanaugh.

This is devastating to Ford’s case.  A liberal believing something has little to do with reality.  When it comes to official correspondence that carries penalties if someone lies, Keyser would not back her friend’s claim.  Ford’s attorneys dismissed Keyser’s denial to the Washington Post, saying it would make sense since it happened so long ago and Ford never talked about it.  But Keyser isn’t just denying the allegations.  She’s denying ever being at a party or gathering with Kavanaugh.

4. Democrats violate the constitution and demand the FBI and DOJ defy President Trump’s order to declassify FISA documents and Comey texts

If it were a Republican investigation and a Democrat President, do you think this wouldn’t be 24/7 front page news?  Trump has ordered that the FISA applications that used the Russian dossier to gain authority to spy on his campaign should be declassified and shared with the public.  He is also ordering texts between major players, including Comey and McCabe, to be declassified.  The President has the constitutional right to order this.  In fact, the body evidence revealed already demands that these things be shared with the public.

Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, and Mark Warner have issued a letter to the FBI and DOJ ordering them not to proceed until they have strategized with them about it.  That is unconstitutional.  Those agencies cannot disobey a Presidential order and delay this declassification.

But the more pertinent question is why?  Why would Democrats be so scared of what might be contained in those memos, interviews, FISA applications, and texts?  None of the Republicans are ordering agencies to defy the President.  Where is the media’s curiosity?

Why we need Jeff Sessions

The frustration Trump has with Jeff Sessions is not unreasonable.  In fact, it’s felt by many on the right, and some on the left who are concerned with stopping crime.  In case you missed it, we have a former FBI director who worked in concert with a former Attorney General to protect a political candidate and exonerate her of criminal mishandling of classified materials at all costs.  Comey pulled out all the stops to make sure Hillary Clinton faced nothing worse than a strong rebuke for her obvious and willful negligence.  Comey had to at least say something.  Other people were going to jail for the exact same thing.

But Comey knew Loretta Lynch was never going to prosecute Hillary Clinton.  And he knew, according to his own testimony, that Hillary Clinton was going to be the next President.  So he suppressed evidence.  He offered plea deals to Hillary’s attorneys that included destroying the evidence of a coverup on their laptops.  He let her attorneys be in the room when he interviewed her to make sure they got their stories straight.  When Loretta Lynch told him he couldn’t use the word “negligent” in his testimony, he substituted the made up legal term “extremely careless”.  But it didn’t matter, cause he knew Hillary was going to win.

When Weiner’s laptop surfaced, Comey lied to congress.  He said the FBI examined every email on Weiner’s laptop.  In reality, they barely touched 1% of them.  Later in testimony, Comey said the only reason he reopened the investigation with Weiner’s laptop was because he knew Hillary was going to win and he didn’t want the discovery to somehow leak out and be a cloud over Hillary’s presidency.  As FBI director, Comey had set himself up for a sweet deal in the new Clinton administration.  But it never happened.

Comey then wrote a book trying to exonerate himself.  He told about how honorable he was and how dishonorable Trump is.  He suddenly found himself with memos about conversations he had with Trump.  Private conversations with the President.  He used his memos to get his friend Robert Mueller appointed as a special counsel.  When Mueller headed the FBI, he fed contracts to Comey’s employer Lockheed Martin and Comey made $6 million in one year on those contracts.  Comey and Mueller have a history of enriching one another.

So what does this have to do with Sessions?  We see all of this obvious corruption before our eyes, even documented in Congress and the press.  We see Inspector General Horowitz reading Peter Strzok’s texts about stopping Trump and saying those texts weren’t politically biased.  We see all of this injustice and the Left gloating about Hillary Clinton getting away with her illegal activities.  We see Hillary Clinton using campaign funds to collude with Russia through a foreign spy in the creation of the Trump dossier and her friends in the FBI using that dossier to get FISA warrants to spy on her opponent.  But we see no justice.

For the last 8 years, we have had Attorney Generals who did what the President said.  They protected the President.  Holder was the first Attorney General held in contempt of Congress and resigned shortly after the Justice Department started illegally seizing phone records of journalists.  In fact that was one of the only times Holder recused himself.  The other times had to do with criminal investigations into clients he had once represented, like Roger Clemens and a Swiss bank being used for tax havens.  Loretta Lynch never recused herself, even after her secret tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton during the Hillary Clinton investigation.

Holder and Lynch never would have appointed a special counsel to investigation wrongdoing by Obama.  Even the thought of that seems ridiculous.  They certainly wouldn’t have recused themselves.  Sessions felt that because he had been part of Trump’s campaign, he should not be involved in these investigations.  In doing so, Sessions has left the Department of Justice in the hands of the conspirators who sought to take Trump down.  McCabe, Strzok, Ohr, Comey, Page, Yates, we know all the names because we’ve seen their internal communications plotting to take Trump out.  The fact that Trump is still standing without a single charge against him and not even being the target of the investigation demonstrates that the justice system overall is working.

But there’s still no justice against criminals like Hillary Clinton.  All we can do is be patient.  In the meantime, I applaud Jeff Sessions for not being like Holder and Lynch.  We know that the result of Mueller’s investigation is not skewed by partisanship to the right.  We know that Sessions’ DOJ is going to be fair.  We don’t have to worry about a situation like we had with Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch where we knew justice was an illusion and the system was rigged to protect Obama and his potential successors.

As painful and frustrating as that is to conservatives, Trump supporters, and those who truly love justice, it is necessary.  The last 8 years have destroyed our confidence in the United States justice system.  Sessions has helped restore that confidence by going back to a policy of abundant non-partisanship and avoiding the appearance of evil.  For that, as hard as it is to say this, we are thankful.  We need more good people like Jeff Sessions in the Department of Justice.

Drain the Swamp: Brennan loses security clearance

Former CIA director turned far left political commentator John Brennan saw his security clearance finally revoked on Wednesday.  Brennan was cited for “lying” and conduct unbecoming for someone who has access to the nation’s secrets.  But Brennan isn’t the only one on the list being considered.

Politico also names FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden, former national security adviser Susan Rice, former FBI attorney Lisa Page, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and Bruce Ohr.  McCabe and Strzok were fired from the FBI for misconduct.

Bruce Ohr has been demoted from assistant deputy attorney general and may not have a job much longer.  He was a crucial part of the Russian investigation, even though his wife worked for Fusion GPS.  In addition to Bruce Ohr’s connections to Fusion GPS, Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya was also a client of Fusion GPS when she set up her meeting with Donald Trump, Jr. in Trump tower.  Nothing happened at the meeting, but it has been cited by liberals as Russian collusion.  Some speculate that entire meeting was a Fusion GPS setup.

It’s possible these late moves are more than just cleaning house.  Many of these individuals have a very suspect past when it comes to the botched Clinton investigation and the unnecessary Trump investigation.  We have seen plenty of evidence from Strzok’s texts of collusion with the Obama administration to stop Trump.  And when you add in the Fusion GPS connections, everyone seems to be in bed with everyone else.  In some cases, literally.

The Inspector General’s office continues it’s investigation into these individuals, but Horowitz’s conclusions have thus far been suspect.  His decision that Strzok’s texts didn’t show bias gives me little hope for the future of that investigation.

Breaking: Almost two years later, Peter Strzok is fired

The FBI agent who was an integral part of the Clinton and Trump investigations has finally been fired.  Peter Strzok, who became infamous for his anti-Trump and election meddling texts, was originally only to be demoted and suspended.  However, FBI Deputy Director David Bodwich overruled the disciplinary office and fired Strzok.

Strzok’s private texts were a goldmine for Trump supporters as the Trump Russia collusion investigation fell apart.  Strzok was having an affair with FBI attorney Lisa Page and texted her about his progress in investigating Trump.  Strzok texted her that Hillary should win, even though he was still investigating Hillary for her illegal email server.  Strzok went on to text that they would “stop Trump”, and went as far as colluding with her to spark the Russian investigation.

Strzok texted with Page about Andrew McCabe’s idea of the Russian investigation being an “insurance policy” in case Trump was elected.  They also texted about Strzok’s relationship with FISA Court judge Contreras in the context of how to spy on the Trump campaign.

In testimony before Congress, Strzok appeared angry, confident, and incredulous that he would be questioned over his texts.  He attempted to explain them away as simply personal political activism that didn’t affect his job, however even Lisa Page admitted that everyone understood his activism in the context of his job at the FBI.

Strzok’s friend and boss, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, was fired earlier this year for leaking to the media.  McCabe was in charge of the Clinton and Trump investigations, and responsible for using Hillary’s bought and paid for Russian dossier propaganda to get FISA warrants to spy on Trump.  McCabe refused to recuse himself, even though his wife was running for office in Virginia as a Democrat.

With McCabe and Strzok fired in disgrace and admissions from Comey and Mueller that Trump was never a target of the Russia investigation, the only thing left for Mueller is the possibility of a perjury rap if he can get Trump under oath.  This isn’t likely at this point unless Mueller subpoenas Trump.

Who colluded with Russia?

It’s time to play spot the criminal.  Who colluded with Russia?  See if you can figure it out.

Hillary Clinton is the only person in the story who actually colluded with the Russians to try to meddle with the election.  She used her contacts in the Obama administration to get the phony information to the friendly FBI agents who were out to stop Trump.  The Trump Russia dossier bought and paid for by Clinton, and created by a British spy working with Russian agents was deemed “salacious and unverified” by none other than former FBI director James Comey.  If we are going to accuse anyone of Russian collusion, it has to be Hillary Clinton.

As first reported yesterday, Trump is likely going to pull security clearances from several former Obama administration appointees.  The appointees, including Andrew McCabe, James Clapper, John Brennan, Susan Rice, and others have been controversial figures.  Clapper and Brennan have accused the President of treason in editorial capacities.  McCabe was fired from the FBI for improper interactions with the press.  Others on the list, like James Comey, have claimed that their security privileges are already revoked.

Trump to revoke security clearance for former intel officials

Indicted Russian operative Maria Butina was part of private meetings with Obama officials in 2015.  Butina met with Federal Reserve vice chairman Stanley Fischer, Treasury Undersecretary Nathan Sheets, and Russian Central Bank deputy governor Alexander Torshin.  Butina has been indicted as a Russian spy who sought to influence US politics and elections.

In New York they are literally letting the criminally insane out to vote for Governor Cuomo.  Cuomo has handed out pardons to thousands of former prisoners in time for the election, including 77 sexual predators who had been committed to psychiatric hospitals after serving their prison time.  The pardon gives them the right to vote, according to the New York Daily News.

The deadest horse in political history, the Trump Russia collusion story, continues to be mercilessly beaten by Democrats.  But it’s over.  Trey Gowdy gave the best summation of the death of the Trump Russia investigation on Sunday, telling Fox host Bret Baier that if there was actually any evidence found against Trump in this two year investigation, Rep. Adam Schiff would have leaked it by now.  The Democrats can pray for an obstruction charge, but the Bill Clinton precedent suggests that’s not going anywhere.  Also, anyone who Trump might have tried to obstruct, such as Comey, McCabe, or Rosenstein, has already proven themselves to be extremely biased and unreliable as a witness.  Stick a fork in this one.  Yup, another fork.

If there was evidence, Schiff would have leaked it

“The administration has implemented an ‘Insider Threat Program’ in all government departments to urge federal employees to monitor their colleagues for possible unauthorized information disclosures. Administration employees suspected of leaking classified information are given lie-detector tests and subject to reviews of their telephone and e-mail records”

No, this isn’t Trump era policy.  This is a flashback to a 2013 USA Today article about an Obama crackdown on the press.  “This (The Obama administration) is the most closed, control freak administration I’ve ever covered,” – David E. Sanger, chief Washington correspondent of The New York Times.

Flashback: Obama often blocks Press access to information

Even as Democrats publicly say that #walkaway is simply a ploy by Russian bots to weaken their party, the split between moderates and socialists is deepening.  Centrists are definitely showing concerns over the rise of Ocasio-Cortez, who seems to be the perfect representative for the politically ignorant millennial generation.

Want some fun? The Russia/Trump connection was an “insurance policy” to “stop Trump” according to operatives in the FBI.  Their own tweets give this away.  But the Media Research council has highlighted this even better by putting together a compilation of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama talking quite differently about Russia before the election.

“This election will not be rigged.”  “We want Russia to be strong.”
