Birds of a Feather: Pocan, "Burn It Down" Bernie

It is reported that Comrade Sanders will NOT fire his Iowa campaign worker who expressed admiration for the Gulag and who promised that if Comrade Sanders is not the (D) nominee, 'Milwaukee will burn.'

Not only will he not fire the guy--the Comrade won't even disavow the remarks.

So what does Mark Pocan (Madistan) do?

Rep. Mark Pocan.... announced Thursday that this year he is endorsing Bernie Sanders.
Of COURSE that's in red font.

Perhaps Cong. Pocan will bring gasoline and bottles to the Democrat Convention to actualize "Burn-it-Down" Bernie's promises?

Note well:  the inflammatory organizer observed that many of his fellow workers in the Bernie campaign were even more 'leftist' than he is.

Where does Comrade Pocan fit on that scale?  Hmmmmmmmmmmm???

Deep State, Vatican Edition

Over here, Donald Trump is more-or-less the "anti-Deep State" guy.

In the Vatican, it appears that Pp. Francis 1 IS the "Deep State" guy.  Benedict XVI was the "anti-Deep State guy" over there. 

(That description ignores a lot of subtleties and cross-currents, but you get the idea.  This blogger imparts the same information, differently.)

So it got .........ahhh..........interesting.  The Deep State in the Church (which may have included Rembert Weakland on the low-smarts/bit-player side) was getting worried about B-16's orthodoxy and popularity.  So--somehow--B-16 was 'inspired' to resign, paving the way for a more accommodating Pope.

That is Francis I.

But that's not going very smoothly; a high-level and very knowledgeable Vatican State department guy, Mgr. Vigano, published a few lengthy letters which spilled a lot of beans--and he's running for his life at this time as a result.

Francis' teachings are often not consistent with Catholic tradition, nor with Scripture; as a result, many Catholics are simply ignoring him.  Even worse for him, the Church's finances are going from bad to much, much, worse; the Deep State players who have been looting the Church are out of his control.  At the same time, wealthy US Catholics have figured out they were played for patsies and wallets are snapping shut.

(My dear Prot pals:  this does NOT mean that the Church has become defectible; she is still the un-spotted Bride of Christ.)

But there are a whole lot of tumors eating away at Her.

Bishops Demand Heroic Virtue in Spain

Apparently the Bishops of Spain now require a three-year "marriage formation" period of instruction before marriage.

They have no clue about normal (heterosexual) human behavior.

Either the Bishops are requiring heroic virtue from these young, engaged, people, or they are tacitly licensing fornication. 

Come to think of it, isn't that the license issued in "The Joy of Sex"Amoris Laetitia?

Cory Mason: History-Challenged

The Mayor of Racine--a mind-numbed robot Democrat, comments on the water level in Lake Michigan.

...“As this happens more and more, and as the climate is changing and the lake levels are rising building a resilient lakefront is going to be something that we’re going to have to think about for the future," Mason said....

We've mentioned before that the water level in Lake Michigan is similar to the level during a part of Dave Schultz's term as Milwaukee County Exec.  But history is irrelevant to mind-numbed Democrats.

(The "reporter" clearly pushed "climate change" onto Mason and some random woman; both of them mentioned it as though there is an irrefutable climate-based link between water-level and "climate."  That's a fallacy, of course; the irrefutable link is between precipitation and lake level.  It's reasonable to assume going forward that this "reporter" will poison the well on other stories.  Beware!!)

Which Fusion for the Right?

Antle has a very perceptive essay here.  He kicks it off with the Porn Controversy which produced very clear fault-lines in the "Republican" bunch.

Then he gets to the meat of the matter:

...Social conservatives have long been viewed—and have generally viewed themselves—as junior partners to economic conservatives inside the Republican Party. They get their voters to the polls to protest abortion and gay marriage. The elected Republicans then promptly cut taxes while Supreme Court precedents declaring abortion a constitutional right remain inviolate and new ones similarly enshrining gay marriage are added, even as conservative judges proliferate. The marriage issue was thought to be central to Bush’s reelection in 2004. By 2016, a slightly higher percentage of evangelicals ended up casting their ballots for Trump, who supports—or at least does not oppose—gay marriage. It is almost universally seen as a settled issue—and not settled in the social conservatives’ favor. 

Similarly, however much fusionism in theory was supposed to be equally committed to tradition and free markets, liberty and virtue, in practice it was seen primarily as a defense of free markets and constitutionally limited government. A manifesto published by First Things in March entitled “Against the Dead Consensus” (signed by TAC senior editor Rod Dreher and contributing editor Patrick Deneen, among others) laid out the charges. “Yes, the old conservative consensus paid lip service to traditional values,” the signatories wrote. “But it failed to retard, much less reverse, the eclipse of permanent truths, family stability, communal solidarity, and much else. It surrendered to the pornographization of daily life, to the culture of death, to the cult of competitiveness. It too often bowed to a poisonous and censorious multiculturalism.”...
It remains the case that the "economics first!!" branch of the dying fusion is in first place.  Just listen to Trump's crowing about the Dow, or jobs, or wage increases.  He's echoed by the "conservative" radiomouths, both national and local--except Tucker Carlson.  And Tucker's viewership has rocketed upward because he simply does not kowtow to a Koch-style MuhMoney!! creed. 

Maybe the others should pay attention.  Unless they think porn is good for their children.

Tokin'Tony's Wish for Wisconsin

Tokin'Tony wants legal marijuana in Wisconsin, and a certain blockhead Pubbie leggie is right there as well.  There may be more, of course, but they speak jibberish so they can't be understood.

This won't change their alleged 'minds' either.

Running red lights. Driving at high speeds. Crossing center lines into the opposite lanes. Getting into accidents -- even hitting pedestrians. A new study found these were some of the dangerous driving behaviors of regular, heavy users of recreational weed who began using before the age of 16.

Here's the catch: users drove this badly even when they were no longer high. 
The study, published Tuesday in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence, asked chronic, heavy marijuana users to drive in a customized driving simulator. 
And what is "heavy use"?  A lot less than you might expect....
..."Heavy use was defined by daily or near daily use, a minimum of four or five times a week, with a lifetime exposure of 1,500 times," said Staci Gruber, director of the Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery (MIND) program at McLean Hospital, the largest psychiatric teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School....
Wanna take bets on Milwaukee's crazy-driver problem and its relationship to weed?

Milwaukee "Press" Missed This??

So happens I look at every Milwaukee "news" website every morning.  JS, 4, 6, 12, 58.

None mentioned the presence of a Communist flag carried by "protesters" at the rally.

And NONE have mentioned the "burn down Milwaukee" comments by Bernie's Iowa manager, either.

Maybe they're incompetent?

Nah.  They have a narrative and by God, that's what you're going to getGood and hard.

WINNING!! On "Family Separation" Border Policy

The momentum is rapidly building.

A U.S. judge ruled Monday that the Trump administration is operating within its authority when separating families stopped at the Mexico border, rejecting arguments that it was quietly returning to widespread practices that drew international condemnation.  NewsThud quoting AP
The ACLU and a bunch of (D) lawyers are spending a shit-ton of money--and losing.

That's a feature AND a benefit.

Where's the Tariff Inflation??

They told me that prices would skyrocket after Trump smacked Red China with tariffs so that US citizens could find solid employment in THIS country.

U.S. producer prices edged up in December as a rise in the cost of goods was offset by weakness in services, the latest indication of tame inflation pressures that could allow the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates unchanged this year.

The Labor Department said on Wednesday its producer price index for final demand ticked up 0.1% last month after being unchanged in November. In the 12 months through December, the PPI increased 1.3% after gaining 1.1% in November.
S'pose it's possible that the Free Trade Morons were wrong?

Or were they just lying..........?

Frank Walker's Right

Frank Walker speculates his way to exactly the right conclusion:  Abp. Gaenswein is a double-dealer who is making sure that Pp. Benedict (emeritus?) loses credibility.  While the press reports that 'Benedict says he did not author [parts of] the book,' note very carefully:  that's Gaenswein saying it.  B-16 has not uttered those words on the record.

And--for good measure--Cdl. Sarah, the co-author of a book on the Church's unbroken tradition of priestly celibacy (yes, it dates back to the Apostles), is also being slandered as a "liar" for acknowledging B-16's work on that very book.

The war has become un-civil.  The long knives are finally exposed, and the Christians are being martyred.  Again.

"Russkies Hacked Burisma"? Sure. No Doubt. /sarc

Bongino is very good at smelling the BS from the NYSlimes.

It's quite simple.  The Senate may hear witnesses in the Trump trial, and those witnesses may include people who are very familiar with Biden's Ukraine shakedown.  (Not that the Biden-bribe is the ONLY Democrat bribe/payoff scheme, mind you....)  Would the name "Soros" surprise you?

So.  The NYT was told to run this bullshit about "hacking."  That way, when the truth of Operative Comrade Ambassador Yovanovich's activities in Ukraine comes out during the Trump trial (or from Schweizer's book), the Democrats can protect Their Precious and his scumsucking friends by declaring:

It's all Russian operatives helping Trump!!!

Watch and see.  Meantime, watch the Bongino link above.  He's kinda fun.

Carville's a Blockhead

Nah, Chris 'Tweety-Bird' Matthews didn't bother to follow up.

Former lead strategist for Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign James Carville said on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball” that President Donald Trump was “the greatest threat this country has faced since the fall of communism.”...

Communism fell?

Who knew?

Certainly not the peasants in North Korea or Viet Nam, nor the Uighurs in Red China, nor the hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing Venezuela, nor the Ladies in White in Cuba....

Jim, you blockhead, you should try Communism for yourself.  Move to one of those workers' paradises.  Don't come back.

Lowry's "Bernie" Column: Out-of-Date in 12 Hours

Rich Lowry writes a gently-worded column about the 'socialist' Bernie.

...If he had his way, the Vermont socialist would fundamentally change the character of the country. He would make the United States an outlier in the Western world, not in terms of its relatively limited government, but its sweeping activism. A Hellfire missile aimed right at the federal fisc, Sanders would make President Barack Obama's economic agenda look like the work of a moderate Republican.

In foreign affairs, he would bring a sympathy for US enemies not often heard outside academia or Noam Chomsky reading groups.

He is the American Jeremy Corbyn, a socialist true-believer whose fantastical agenda reflects the dictates of dogma. The difference is that Corbyn effectively promised a return to socialist-imposed stagnation in Britain, whereas Bernie is ­inviting America to experience it for the first time....
Nope.  Sorry, Mr. Lowry, your assessment was horribly wrong.

In a video released today, Bernie's Iowa campaign manager made it clear:  there WILL be gulags under Bernie, there WILL be "re-education" under Bernie, and, if you resist Bernie, you WILL be dead--not to mention dead Milwaukee cops and (possibly) a burned-down City of Milwaukee.

Rich, boy, best up your game.   Your polite warnings are a girl's game.

What Bernie and his followers need is a close-up of baseball bats and--if necessary--AR-15's.

Listen Up, Mayor Barrett

It appears that Bernie's campaign management has plans for Milwaukee.

They're bringing matches and gasoline to the Convention.  This gives a whole new meaning to "Feel the Bern!"

Oh, yah, and "gulags are good."

Think they'll let AOC toss a few Molotovs?  

Kerry, Lawyer, Liar

Why izzit that when someone is a lawyer, they are so often caught lying?

Here John Kerry gets smashed by a SeeBeeS member of the MSM (!!!) for his egregious lying.

Stopped clock and all that.........but worse, Kerry continues to carry the torch for Iran's dictators.

Local Gummints Steal Highway Funds for "Needs"

Technically, the locals are not "stealing" highway funds.  They're trying to take what Tokin'Tony is giving away--which are funds previously earmarked for local highway repairs.

So now it's not "Scott-holes"; it's Tony-Holes.

Even better is the outright lying from these local twerps.

...Mike Koles, executive director of the Wisconsin Towns Association, called it “a clear, undeniable record of the unmet needs.

“The needs are unquestionable, and while we realize this one-time grant program is not a long-term answer to more than a billion dollars of reported local community needs, it is a significant step in the right direction,” added League of Wisconsin Municipalities Executive Director Jerry Deschane....

"NEEDS"?  Really?  NEEDS??  The Propaganda-Lying School of Money-Grubbing is in session.

Let's look at these "needs":

 ...West Bend’s $4.1 million downtown riverwalk and the Potawatomi Tribe’s $600,000 ATV trail. However, some requests seemingly have nothing to do with transportation at all. The City of Spooner wants $3.9 million to renovate an old railroad station into a museum. The Village of Belleville wants $542,000 to restore their old train depot into business space. The Town of Solon Springs wants $347,500 for a scenic overlook....
There is no shame among these thieves.  None at all.

How Many Communists in the Deep State?

Interesting little interview (54+ minutes) with a researcher-author who specializes in digging out the Communist/Marxist philosophy in our Leading Lights.

Turns out that the Establishment is crawling with these vermin.

Does that make them anti-Trump?

Maybe.  But Communism is absolutely incompatible with the US' system of government.

Interesting names.......including a fellow named Comey.

The Poisonous FISA "Court"

Unfortunately, this little excerpt fairly characterizes far more "Courts" than just FISA.

...On September 4, 2019, the FISC approved the FBI’s amended querying procedures, explaining that the revisions remedy the deficiencies contained in the earlier procedures. Thus, the FISC held that the FBI’s minimization and querying procedures were consistent with the requirements of Section 702 and the Fourth Amendment. [Ruling]

Although the Government did not seek to resume FISA-702(16) “abouts” collection, the FISC, with assistance from amici, reviewed whether the “abouts” restrictions applied to any other types of Section 702 acquisitions currently being conducted.  Essentially it was the job of David Kris to deal with the violations being outlined, and then find process arguments to convince the FISA court to keep letting the DOJ and FBI use the system.

It’s Kris’s job to manufacture the judicial plausible deniability the FISA Judges need to keep allowing the FISA process to exist.

Stop and read that again.

Even before Mr. Kris was given this new FISC assignment, it was already his job to manufacture process arguments, find obtuse angles to justify the procedures being used, and provide the FISA judges with the plausible deniability they need in order to keep rubber stamping the fourth amendment violations.

It’s a scheme.  A legal game of whack-a-mole.  Every time the DOJ and FBI violate the fourth amendment; and every time they are caught in a compliance audit; Kris comes into the picture as the ‘fixer’, with the job to keep the non-fixable system going....

The Black-Robed jackwads have been cruising for a bruising for well over 50 years.  It's about time that they got what they're asking for.

Congress MUST de-fund FISA.

Probably Losing Their Company Car....

Two idiots.

Two General Motors employees have been arrested after they were caught racing two brand new 2020 Corvettes at speeds of up to 120 mph on a Kentucky road. 

The men had reportedly been drinking at Cue Time Cocktails and Billiards on Wednesday evening, before deciding to go on the high-speed joyride along Lovers Lane, in Bowling Green. ...

Well, yes, the new 'vette can handle a lot of speed and curvy roads.

Apparently having a degree from GM Institute (or some other college) does not confer actual smarts.

They'll prolly have to give up their company cars--or maybe be assigned to driving a Bolt.

B-16 Fires a Missile

Apparently Benedict XVI's 'minder,' Mgr Gaenswein, was on vacation, and B-16 got together with Cd. Sarah to write a book strongly strenuously defending priestly celibacy.

The priesthood of Jesus Christ causes us to enter into a life that consists of becoming one with him and renouncing all that belongs only to us,' he writes....

'For priests, this is the foundation of the necessity of celibacy but also of liturgical prayer, meditation on the Word of God and the renunciation of material goods.'

Marriage, he writes, requires man to give himself totally to his family.

'Since serving the Lord likewise requires the total gift of a man, it does not seem possible to carry on the two vocations simultaneously. Thus, the ability to renounce marriage so as to place oneself totally at the Lord´s disposition became a criterion for priestly ministry.'...
It's no secret that some German Cardinals--who have been troublesome for their entire careers--are pushing for married priests.  That's not new, but their propaganda-blast vis-a-vis "the Amazon" IS new.  They're using a 'priest shortage' in that region to justify ordaining married men, and they've managed to fool a few Catholics.  So far.

Pp. Francis is sympathetic to this cause, of course, but he'll never put that into writing.  He'll just  ask for an "interview" with his favorite atheist newspaper publisher, state what he thinks, and have the Vatican Press Office do the Dishonesty Do-Si-Do.

It's a well-worn path for this little Peronist Jesuit.

Will Cd. Sarah's and B-16's intervention be enough?  It may be, as a number of US (and German) Catholics have cut back on the cash donations following the perfidies of Francis, and cash is king, as they say.  When two of the better thinkers of the Church release this sort of bomb, ..........well........

Nonetheless, PRAY!!

Cobra v. Mongoose in Democrat Household

Nancy is doing her damndest to keep the focus on impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, World War 3, World War 3, ..........yada.  You get the idea.

But even the MSM cannot overlook the REAL war going on--the one inside the (D) household.

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she won't pay $250,000 she owes in dues to the Democrats - money which is put toward the effort to keep the party's majority in the House.

The 30-year-old firebrand, who is the youngest person ever elected to Congress, balked at contributing her share of fundraising to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

At issue for AOC, as she is referred to, is a policy that she says 'blacklists' vendors working with insurgent primary challengers like herself....
Rumor has it that the AOC gang of CPUSA (yes, I said it: Communist Party USA) insurgents intends to take out two dozen DEMOCRAT House members this year, including several Black Caucus members (remember Bobby Rush?) and some rank-and-file moderates (Lipinski of Illinois and Engel of NYC.)

Of course, Nancy is not defenseless.  New York State is going to lose one Congressional district after the '20 Census.

Guess which one Nancy will eliminate?

The Impeach-Impeach-Impeach-World War 3 World War 3 thing is already month-old room-temperature oatmeal.  The REAL fun will be watching the Cobra take on the Mongoose. 

Try Not to Cry, America

This is truly depressing, I guess.  Some obnoxious money-grubber dame and her house-twit won't infect the US.

According to reports coming from England, Meghan Markle and her husband are settling in Canada and refusing to move to Hollywood to pursue Meghan’s career until President Trump is no longer president....

Damn near enough justification for a Trump third term.

Trump vs. Reality

The President is being very poorly advised.

President Donald Trump told Fox News TV host Laura Ingraham on Friday his 2021 plans to welcome more foreign graduates will not flood the labor market for U.S. college graduates.

Won't 'flood the market', eh?

...Ingraham rejected business claims of shortages: “We’re seeing a plateauing of wages … There’s a never-ending appetite on the part of corporate America to bring in as much cheap labor as possible to drive down wages.”...
Trump seems to think that the Administration will control for quality.

“I’m not talking about cheap — I’m talking about brainpower,” Trump responded. “They want to hire smart people. And those people are thrown out of the country — we can’t do that,” he said, referring to foreign graduates of U.S. colleges.

Trump seems to want to help companies import a relatively small number of very clever people, such as Ivy League valedictorians....
Why sure!!  Take only Ivy League valedictorians, throw the rest back!!  Maybe that's what Trump really intends to do...............not.

...In fact, the government does not require U.S companies to hire Americans first, and it does not screen out unskilled foreign workers. The government does not cap foreign hires and does not enforce the loopholed rules which supposedly require foreign workers to be skilled and to be paid market-level wages. Nor does the government even try to curb the large scale nepotism that allows foreign born managers in the United States to import huge numbers of foreign workers who will kick back some of their salaries to their bosses.

For example, the “Optional Practical Training” program was expanded by President G. Bush and President Barack Obama to provide employers with an extra stream of foreign graduates. Foreigners get these OPT work permits by simply enrolling in U.S. colleges,....
Now there's a "quality" metric!!  Enroll in college, get a job

But how "qualified" are these folks?

...Federal agencies have never released a full count of the resident H-1B workforce, but federal data shows that a huge percentage are not valedictorians and that many come from no-name universities in India.

The federal data for 2017, for example, shows that 39 percent of the H-1Bs sought by New York employers were rated as “entry-level” workers, similar to U.S. graduates. Another 26 percent were rated as just “qualified,” and only six percent were rated “competent.” These cheap workers have pushed hundreds of thousands of American professionals out of jobs.

This is the visa worker program which is used by companies to replace many Americans graduates....
We've mentioned that Kohl's has more than 400 imported IT workers right there in Menomonee Falls.  Hit the link, scroll down, and you'll find the same thing at WallyWorld HQ in Arkansas.

Trump is wrong, and he should admit it.

Obnoxity Poll

Yah, I don't have one of those cute little polling gadgets.

But I have THE question:

Which was MORE obnoxious during yesterday's game:  Joe Buck, or Bloomberg's 385 ads?

RedforEd Update

Actually, it's "Reds-in-Ed"...but that's another day.

Anyhow, here's the news:

The founder of the #RedforEd movement is now promoting “next-generation” political teacher activism to academics in graduate schools of education around the country in order to further advance a socialist agenda in the United States.

Noah Karvelis — who launched the #RedforEd movement in Arizona when he was 23 years old in March of 2018 — is now a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin at Madison....
Hmmmm.  UW-Madison.

Why are we not surprised??

In Virginia? Words to Live By

The AOSHQ's gun guy has some really, really, good advice if you're planning on "lobby day" activity in Richmond.

...As I mentioned before, these are Lobby Days. They are not Be a Badass or Start Some Shit Days. I will absolutely guarantee you that extremists on the left are going to be there in number to start trouble and make the pro-gun side look like the aggressor in any confrontation. One of my best friends and my main shooting buddy made a career as a network cameraman, and has covered countless rallies, demonstrations, civil disturbances and outright wars all over the world. Time after time he has seen first hand the tactics of the left, who will stop at nothing to cause you to lose your cool. Want to be on the evening news in a video edited to make you look like a aggressive gun-toting redneck? That can and will happen. If you are confronted, walk away. You will do more damage to the cause and give the left just what it wants if you get into as much as a shouting match. Think the media will cover any of this in a fair and unbiased manner? Think again.
These events have the potential to go sideways in a hurry so keep your wits about you, do be safe, and do not be the star in a shitshow. This is simply about showing numbers. All eyes are on Virginia, which is why it is critical this not devolve into a riot. Believe me when I say the 2nd Amendment Sanctuary movement has the attention of the legislature, and tens of thousands of people in Richmond will be very difficult to ignore. The time for vigorous protest will come later....
Or as another sage put it a couple centuries ago:

Keep your powder dry.

Best Wishes!!

Now It's "Cellphone Control"

They're still working on gun control, but that's so last century.

So they're updating their control freak targets.

“Young people frequently use cell phones to bully and threaten other young people, activities that have been linked to many suicides.”
“In light of the dangerous and life-threatening consequences of cell phone use by young people, it is clear that persons under 21 years of age are not developmentally mature enough to safely possess them.”
The word to notice is "control."

Where in the World Is Lyin' Joe Pientka?

Maybe the FBI is trying to be THE most corrupt outfit in the US Government.

FBI Agent Joe Pientka – who lied the FISA Court and later interviewed Flynn – was promoted and moved to the SF area AFTER the FBI learned of serious problems in his FISA application.

So lying to FISA gets you a promotion to ASAC.


Then there's the update:

 The SF FBI Field Office has scrubbed him from their site.
OK, so..........where in the world is Lyin' Joe Pientka??

President Trump's "To-Do" List Is Long

Sure, he's been a force for change in D.C.

But he has a lot of promises he hasn't kept, and a bunch of other items which must be done.

...In the spring of 2018 a group of congressional reps led by Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, Lee Zeldin and Bob Goodlatte, asked President Trump to declassify a series of documents so the public could see how former officials in the DOJ & FBI abused their offices and conducted political surveillance....

Still NOT done, Mr. President.

...Amid the twists and turns many people have forgotten about the material congress asked President Trump to declassify two-years-ago.  Additionally there has been some material cited that just seemingly slipped away without follow-up.  Consider:
  • Whatever happened to the forty pages of Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe text messages that Catherine Herridge noted nine months ago?  Herridge only published four of the pages in March 2019.
  • Why are the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages still redacted two years after their original release (December 1st, 2017)?
  • Where’s the release of the Susan Rice inauguration day memo to the file?
  • Why didn’t the DOJ/FBI release all of the Bruce Ohr 302’s without redaction?  Will those fully unredacted 302’s be part of the IG report release?
  • Where’s the unredacted David Archey FBI declarations that were previously ordered to be released by a DC judge?
  • The Mueller investigation ended 9 months ago.  Why are we still not able to see the  unredacted three authorization memos that Rosenstein gave to the special counsel on May 17th, August 2nd and October 20th, 2017?
It would be nice to have an informed electorate for the November contest, no?


Watch Attkisson's Suit!

We mentioned yesterday that Sharyl Attkisson has filed suit against (among others) Rod Rosenstein for civil rights violations, specifically, SPYING on her.  That's because Attkisson was hot on the Obozo Regime's trail following Obozo/Holder abuse of the IRS as a database-for-spying.

Guess who ELSE was involved in that spying?

FBI Director Robert Mueller, "the honorable and clean".

All this spying on politically inconvenient citizens began in 2012, so by the time Trump became a factor, they were pretty good at it.

Not perfect, but good.

Tar and feathers?  No.

Rope and trees.

Humor Break

This is for Tommy Trolley....but also, with great sympathy, for our neighbors in Madistan.  HT Powerline

Yup. FISA Is Part of the Swamp

Shouldn't really be a big surprise, as it's been clear for a couple of decades that the Judicial Branch is just as power-mad and reality-challenged as is any other bunch of suspects.

PowerLine provides what SHOULD be the final nail in FISA's coffin.

David Kris served as Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Justice under President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. He drew on his prestige as a former senior official in the Department of Justice to disparage Rep. Devin Nunes in his exposure of the FBI’s misconduct in the Russia haox and assure the left that all was in order. He is an apologist for FBI misconduct who gives the Department of Justice Inspector General report on the FBI’s FISA misconduct the stupidly credulous reading that absolves the FBI of political bias in the matter. 

Who better than Kris to serve as amicus curiae to the FISA court to help it assess the government’s response to Judge Collyer’s December 17 order. That is what new FISA court presiding judge James Baosberg did late yesterday afteroon in this order. As Jack Paar used to say, I kid you not....
 That battle just now commencing in Virginia.......yes, THAT only a little "symbolic."  It's mostly for real.  The Second is not about self-defense, and not about hunting.

It's about jackasses like FISA.

Heap Big (D) Speaks Truth, Once

News item.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) sent out a tweet on Thursday evening saying that transgender young people are “more likely” to have mental health problems.
Those problems began ....ahhh.......before any surgeries.

The evidence is coming in; trannies are products of extremely dysfunctional and/or abusive families.  That said, accommodating their fantasy-world is NOT the solution. 

Gee. Aren't "Deep Regrets" Enough?

FEEB capo Wray.

FBI Director Christopher Wray told the federal surveillance court in a letter Friday that he “deeply regrets” the bureau’s many errors in the process to obtain surveillance warrants on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“The FBI has the utmost respect for this Court, and deeply regrets the errors and omissions identified by the OIG,” Wray wrote in a letter to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC)....

First off, these were not "errors and omissions."  They were deliberate, and criminal intent was behind every.  damned.  one.  of them.

We know about 4 FEEBS who were fired for malfeasance and lying.  What about the rest?  Have they been stripped of their pensions?  Health-plans?

And when they go to court--if "Justice" ever pulls that trigger--will they be sentenced to something more than probation?

Yah.  Not likely.

Thanks, Mr. Wray.

More Corrupto-Clinton!

Here's the question:  which is more corrupt? the State Department, the "Justice" Department, the FEEBS, or the Clintons?

...Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, said the revelations in these emails demonstrate that a fresh criminal investigation into Clinton is necessary, as these newly discovered emails prove she regularly transmitted classified information via her insecure server system.

“Magically, after years, the FBI finds more Clinton emails that show Clinton used text messages for government work, not to mention the continuing flow of classified information transmitted over her unsecure email system,” Fitton said. “These documents further underscore the need for a fresh, unbiased and thorough criminal investigation into Clinton’s blatant malfeasance – and the related DOJ, FBI, and State Department cover-up.”...

Follow-up:  doesn't it make you feel good to know you are supporting all these slime-buckets with your taxes?

The Busybody Twits at State Department

So Iraq asked us to get out, please.

What's the reaction from the State Eminent Multiple Failure Department?

'We don't want to leave and we're going to impose our will on you you bunch of Deplorables!'

(Familiar language, no?)

Lotta people with bad habits in that Department.  Maybe Trump should transfer them to the Forestry Department and assign them to Wyoming.

A LIttle More Obozo-Stupid

Grim has spent a lot of time in-theater in the ME.

...Turkey is apparently moving forces into Libya to try to quell the remaining fires of the civil war Obama kicked off nine years ago. They have, of course, chosen to back the wrong side; but it's also the side Obama had picked, quite a few of whom were al Qaeda affiliates in the grand days of that movement. The Trump administration doesn't seem to care about Libya one way or the other, and will likely let the Turks decide the issue if they are able. Trump, at least, doesn't share the opinion that America is indispensable to these conflicts....
Obozo, along with the friggin' genius ex-limo driver Rhodes and the usual gaggle of nincompoops-in-striped-pants at State, not to mention Communist-voter Brennan.

Yah, he F*&^ed the Middle East real good.

A Dishonest Obozo-Lawyer in D.C.? Oh, NOOOOOES!!!

Glenn Reynolds reads the crap from ex-Obozo twits so you don't have to.

...Susan Hennessey is Executive Editor of the Lawfare Blog, a Brookings Senior Fellow, and a CNN National Security Legal Analyst and former Intelligence Community lawyer. She’s also, as you can see, a dishonest idiot. These are the “experts” Trump is supposed to have deferred to. Disgraceful, and a pretty good explanation of why our foreign policy has been a dumpster fire for the last three decades....

The stupid, lying, lawyer claimed that the passengers in the Ukrainian jet were victims of "crossfire" between US and Salami-man.

Reynolds makes the by-now obvious point that the Usual Suspects (State, CIA, NSA, etc.) were NOT asked for advice; as a result, they fervently pray that the gambit fails.

Because the question is obvious:  Who Needs These People??

Corrupt? The FEEBS?? Oh, NOOOOES!

How long will it take before Trump fires the whole damn bunch of these bastards?

In a federal lawsuit filed this week, Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosentein has been implicated in yet another improper government spy operation.

In the new complaint, Attkisson v. Rosenstein, investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson names former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosentein and four other Justice Department officials as the government agents who of illegally survielled her electronic devices....

There's a whistleblower who (obviously) should become Director, FBI.

Trump vs. The Precious

It's wonderful to hear President Trump call Obama exactly what he was:  a wormy, pandering, chickenshit who was de-balled by Mooch and Pelosi.  Trump knows that Obama is doing his very best to strike at the King, by the way, and so do we all.

Seems that without Brennan, Comey, and The Clap(per), li'l Barry is ........impotent.

The Press doesn't like it.  Boo Hoo.

BadaBing!! Wall Funds Released by 5th


Besides winning his case against "sanctuary cities" last Friday--which means Trump can do the right thing and cut off "COPS" funding to "sanctuaries" (like L.A.), Trump scored another one in the 5th Circuit today.

...A federal appeals court has overturned a lower court ruling to allow the Trump administration to divert $3.6 billion in military construction funds to fund expanded construction on the president’s southern border wall....

By January 2025, many US citizens will be much safer, no thanks to Paul Ryan nor the Bush Bunch, nor the America-hating Left/Democrat Party.

Killing Americans With Globalism

While this study tells us what we already suspected, there are a few questions remaining.

...A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association examined 112 counties near automobile plants, primarily in the industrial Midwest and South, from 1999 to 2016. A quarter of the counties were near a plant that closed. Researchers compared overdose deaths before and after plant closures.

Opioid overdose deaths in counties where automobile plants had closed were 85 percent higher than in counties where they hadn’t.

The study’s “findings highlight the potential importance of eroding economic opportunity as a factor in the U.S. opioid overdose crisis,” the authors conclude. “From 1999 to 2016, automotive assembly plant closures were associated with increases in opioid overdose mortality.”

The study found non-Hispanic white men suffered the largest increase in overdose deaths....
We've known, largely by instinct, that lack of a future leads to serious social problems.  Opioids are the new alcohol, of course.  So there's that.

Another interesting study would look at marriage and childbirth rates across the same counties.  The "hunch" is that marriages are down, but childbirths are not--meaning illegitimacy is increasing.

We paid a lot for cheap teevees and cars, no?

Thank God for Trump!!

Mikie Bloomberg: Laughably Wrong, Again

Li'l Mikie Bloomberg will have wasted a small fortune on his wacky-doodle crusade.

We mentioned earlier that Li'l Mikie "thinks" that nobody, but nobody, should have the right to self-defense. 

Apparently Li'l Mikie wants to out-do that inane position, and he's trying!

California “is something the rest of the country looks up to,” Bloomberg said.
California has been a joke since about 1975, and it's become a very bad joke in the last decade or so.  Here in Normie-World, we fertilize grass with processed poop (Milorganite.)  In California, they fertilize their sidewalks with raw poop.

That's just for openers.  Moonbattery has a long, long, list of other California .....ahh.......problems.

Poor, Poor, D.C. Babies!!

Your betters--the ones you pay--will not be working much today.

Federal government employees in Washington will be permitted to leave work hours early on Tuesday as the region anticipates just an inch of snowfall.

"Employees of Federal offices in the Washington, DC area are authorized for early departure," the Office of Personnel Management said in a notice to staff. "Employees should depart 4 hours earlier than their normal departure time and may request UNSCHEDULED LEAVE to depart prior to their staggered departure time. All employees MUST DEPART at no later than 1:00 pm at which time FEDERAL OFFICES are CLOSED."...
One to three inches of snow is expected.

Here's a quick challenge:  see if you can notice a difference between "working" and "not working" output from the hive of drones......

Poor, poor, babies.

Paying for Slander (!!!)

Whaddya know about that!

Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann received reportedly has received a settlement from CNN after suing the far-left network for smearing him last year.

“CNN agreed Tuesday to settle a lawsuit with Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann,” Fox 19 reported. “The amount of the settlement was not made public during a hearing at the federal courthouse in Covington.”

Sandmann also filed lawsuits against The Washington Post and NBC Universal, each for $250 million or over, and is reportedly planning to “sue Gannett, owners of The Enquirer.”...
WaPo, NBC, Gannett still in the pay-at-this-window line.

M mmmmmmm, schadenfreude!
