Scandal, Corruption, Lawbreaking —
And So What?

National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/13/2018 5:15:09 AM

The FISA-gate, Clinton emails, and Uranium One scandals are sort of reaching a consensus. Many things quite wrong and illegal were done by both Hillary Clinton and her entourage and members of the Obama agencies and administration — both the acts themselves and the cover-ups and omissions that ensued. Remember, in the FISA-gate scandal such likely widespread criminal behavior was predicated on two premises: 1) certainty of an easy Clinton victory, after which the miscreants would be not only excused but probably rewarded for their zeal; 2) progressive hubris in which our supposedly moral betters felt it their right,

It doesn´t help that "respected" U.S. Senators ...elected... like Warner and McCain are also involved in trying to end the Presidency of President Trump by aiding the breaking of U.S. laws. They get cover from the Senatorial colleagues .. their friends.. like my own Senators Collins and King who then are also implicated in the attempted overthrow of a lawfully elected President. It´s sad and infuriating at the same time.

Bravo Dr. Hanso!! Once again he nails it. This whole thing is so large that if no one is prosecuted for the major crimes committed then future administrations will have free will to weaponize any and all federal agencies against their opposition.

We would be well on our way to becoming a third world dictatorship and will soon have a president for life.

Every Enemedia agent trying to coverup or lie about Worse Than Watergate can credibly be accused of being a participant in the crimes.

"Accepting any of these obfuscations would be a grave mistake."

ABSOLUTELY!

I don´t know if we will get to conviction and jail time but this was a major CONSPIRACY. The public may shrug their shoulders about one politician shoveling dirt on another, no matter how nasty they were about it.

However, those same politicians utilizing the federal government and media to facilitate their actions crosses a very BIG, very RED line. If it isn´t illegal, it should be.

If nothing else, the political operations of the dems and the Clintoon campaign need to be exposed, names named, and charges specified. Ethical and moral violations as well. All things Clintoon should be excoriated. No hang dog apologies accepted. Hillary and BJ should come out of this as pariahs if not convicted criminals. If there are pleas, they should be with ADMISSIONS of guilt and bans from government participation and access.

No one in the FBI, DOJ, intelligence, State, or any other government agency that had a knowing part in this should EVER work for the federal government again. No consulting, no interaction as part of a company, no nothing. Make permanent banishment part of a plea deal or freedom from prosecution.

Mueller should review his investigation and probably conclude that it is hopelessly tainted by corruption. He should name names and recommend for prosecutions. He should drop all ongoing prosecutions and rescind already entered pleas. He should sum up that, at this point there is NO evidence for Trump Russian collusion. Period. He should apologize to Trump for this abuse of prosecutorial power.

Mueller SHOULD be embarrassed and angry that he has been used like this. We will see if he really is an honorable man.

People were killed because of these conspiracies. National security was threatened
because of these conspiracies. Elections were undermined because of these conspiracies, etc,etc etc. Let them all off- no da*n way. Appoint a special investigator and throw every one of these criminals in prison.

Still, Democrats at some point will see that what they thought was the formerly defensible is now becoming absolutely indefensible

Oh no, VDH, YOU have a purple unicorn too? Because Democrats will NEVER EVER do that.

What is needed? Attorney General Sessions must find muscular, ambitious, and combative prosecutors (preferably from outside Washington, D.C., and preferably existing federal attorneys), direct them to call a Grand Jury, and begin collating information from congressional investigations to get to the bottom of what is likely one of gravest scandals in post-war American history: the effort to use the federal government to thwart the candidacy of an unpopular presidential candidate and then to smear and ruin his early tenure as president.

I totally agree but that will happen when the space shuttle lands safely in my driveway and I win Powerball five times in a row without ever buying a ticket.

Love me some VDH but come on, Captain Obvious.......the double standard could not be more clear. The nasty habit of Leftists accusing innocent Conservatives of crimes which they are, themselves, knee deep in is too obvious....too repetitive....too clear to everyone. While Mssr. Trump may (or may not) be faultless and slippery and clean......his defenders must fear for their own closeted skeletons because NOTHING EVER HAPPENS to the bad guys in this long boring opera.

I used to write and post every damn day around here but now I´m down to once a month......am I the only one who feels "Punked" by the system ?

Three cheers for Preezy Trump but I´ll be playing golf and fishing until Obama and Felonia von Pantsuit are shaking the cold hard steel partitions at the grey bar hotel.

The Left is proudly A-moral and will continue it´s crimes against LIBERTY until confronted with the firing squad.

Yes.....nothing less than the firing squad .......on the six o´clock news.

Dammit.

#5 Mueller has had plenty of time to show he is an honorable man.

He hasn´t and he isn´t.

The Social Benefits of Fossil
Fuels Far Outweigh the Costs
Wall Street Journal, by Joseph L. Bast and Peter Ferrara    Original Article

As several cities continue their suit against oil companies, The People of the State of California v. BP, Judge William Alsup has boiled the case down to its pivotal question. In March he ordered the legal counsels of both parties to help him weigh “the large benefits that have flowed from the use of fossil fuels” against the possibility that such fuels may be causing global warming. We sent the judge, and posted online, a 24-page document that answers his question. The benefits of oil, coal and gas are rarely acknowledged by environmental activists, who seek to regulate and tax these

   

 



 
The crazy reason the FBI didn´t search
the devices of Hillary Clinton´s inner circle
Washington Examiner [DC], by Tom Rogan    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/18/2018 4:59:56 AM     Post Reply
While the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton´s secret server where she kept official emails out of the view of the authorities until her lawyers could scrub them, for some reason, agents never searched the Blackberries or other email devices belonging to her inner circle at the State Department. Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his team received a crazy response when they asked FBI agents on the Hillary Clinton email investigation why not. The agents´ primary excuse was to point to "the culture of mishandling classified information at the State Department which made the quantity of potential sources of evidence

Mount Everest, the high-altitude rubbish dump
Agence France-Presse, by Paavan Mathema and Annabel Symington    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/18/2018 4:56:09 AM     Post Reply
Decades of commercial mountaineering have turned Mount Everest into the world´s highest rubbish dump as an increasing number of big-spending climbers pay little attention to the ugly footprint they leave behind. Fluorescent tents, discarded climbing equipment, empty gas canisters and even human excrement litter the well-trodden route to the summit of the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) peak. "It is disgusting, an eyesore," Pemba Dorje Sherpa, who has summited Everest 18 times, told AFP. "The mountain is carrying tonnes of waste." As the number of climbers on the mountain has soared -- at least 600 people have scaled the world´s highest peak so far this year

How the Queen and Meghan Markle
Became Besties So Quickly
Daily Beast, by Tom Sykes    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/17/2018 3:04:02 PM     Post Reply
It was an extraordinary sight—as the queen and Meghan Markle sat on chairs watching a performance by a group of schoolchildren on Thursday, Meghan leant over and whispered something in her grandmother-in-law’s ear, and the monarch chuckled. Her Majesty then made a canoeing action, in friendly imitation of the kids’ performance, and laughed again. The queen has a fairly simple policy on public emotion which is to not show it, ever, and this is not because she is some unthinking adherent to the principle of the stiff upper lip, but just because it makes life simpler, and avoids people being upset

Liza Minnelli quietly selling
off Andy Warhol paintings
New York Post, by Richard Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/17/2018 2:50:19 PM     Post Reply
Liza Minnelli is lucky no one bought her Andy Warhol collection two years ago — she’ll end up much richer by selling off the paintings one by one. A source in Switzerland reports one of Minnelli’s 22 Warhols — a silk-screen of her mother Judy Garland — was just sold by Larry Gagosian for $7 million to an unnamed buyer. It was one of three portraits of Judy in Liza’s collection, which also includes four portraits of herself and three of her father Hollywood director Vincente Minnelli. I reported two years ago that Liza was asking $40 million for the entire collection, trying

Father’s Day. They Deserve Respect

An Internet search for “Father’s Day 2018” brings up a top hit: “20 Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts That Are Amazon Prime-Eligible.” Now, like most dads, I’m not one to complain about receiving gifts (especially when they involve a good weekend of fishing), but something is wrong when popular culture understands the obligations of Father’s Day as nothing more than a 30-minute phone call and shipping your dad something Amazon’s website said were “Dad’s Favorites.” Like so many other things in our culture today, the commercialization of this holiday obscures its true meaning. Father’s Day is about so much more than store

   

 

  


 
The Real Problem With the OIG Report
American Spectator, by George Parry    Original Article

It seems like a day doesn’t go by without some female high school teacher getting arrested for having sexual relations with an underage student. The story line is always the same. Ms. Hotpants either gets caught in the act or because her student paramour shares with the world the naked selfies that for some weird reason she just had to send to his cell phone. Invariably the teacher is quickly and unceremoniously condemned, fired from her job and arrested. This sequence of events always seemed appropriate. But, having had the benefit of reading the recent report by the Justice Department’s

Laura Bush blasts Trump migrant

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

Hillary Clinton weighed in Monday morning on the ongoing controversy regarding the Trump administration’s "no-tolerance” border policy, suggesting that Jesus would not condone the actions of the American border authorities. At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time. I’ve studied both the Old and New Testament, and what is being

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

Tesla CEO and PayPal billionaire Elon Musk surprised many Friday when he declared on Twitter that he is a socialist. Conservative critics, however, may well have agreed, given his companies’ reliance on the state. Musk tweeted his declaration Friday after first tweeting that socialists have no sense of humor: (Tweet) When challenged to define his own ideology, however, Musk said he was a “socialist”: (Tweets) Musk then responded to the latter tweet by declaring: (Tweets) Left-wing critics on Twitter weren’t having it: (Tweets) Conservatives have often criticized Musk in the past for relying heavily on government for his companies’

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved? Campus Reform: The hospital’s president, Dr. Betsy Nabel, told the Globe that moving the portraits is the right decision: “I have watched the faces of individuals as they have come into Bornstein.

Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Sen. Charles E. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey
