Media Fail: FBI Not Interested
in Feinstein’s Kavanaugh Hoax —
but ‘Pro’ Journos Take the Bait

Breitbart Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/14/2018 11:38:28 AM

The FBI will not be investigating Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) last-second attempt to smear Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. After countless hours of hearings, a number of in-depth background checks, thousands of questions asked and answered, and numerous one-on-one meetings with senators of both parties, at the very last second Feinstein dramatically released a letter (she has reportedly had in her possession for months) to the FBI.(Snip) According to the far-left Washington Post, however, the FBI is not interested and will not be investigating the matter.

Comments:
It sounds as though the allegation involved a prank.

FTA:

Nevertheless, left-wing outlets like NBC News ran with headlines that read, “Sexual allegation against Kavanaugh referred to FBI by top Democrat.”

And in that particular story, we have a prime example of what NBC News called “journalism.”

Two sources told NBC News the allegation was sexual in nature, but both said the letter writer was not specific in describing Kavanaugh’s alleged behavior. One source told NBC News the conduct described could allege sexual assault, but said it could also be a lesser allegation — and added the individual making the allegation would have to be more specific with law enforcement officials for any investigation to be able to move forward.

It is sad that not one reporter asked this stuttering fool a single question about her Chinese chauffeur spy! After all the Feinsteins made gazillions with the Chinese. Would love to see this imbecilic woman trying to get back on the subject of a phony last minute witch investigation about Kavanaugh, which she kept secret for months.

Slimy Senator colluding with Enemedia haters to try to gin up another Fake New story, attempting to harm Kavanaugh.

Has she stopped giving information to Chinese spies? Did her Chinese handlers tell her to do this?

Begin to imagine what these thugs and lunatics will try when RBG leaves the court.

Feinstein reportedly received this tidbit in July rather circuitously through a chain of “passers-on”. She held it until now. Her very own little “September Surprise”?

This old rhymes-with-itch should be drummed out of the Senate. Corrupt. Nasty. Need more?

How does locking a girl in a room constitute sexual misconduct? Could have been carrying things too far but with no further input I don´t see anything sexual.

I stuffed a female friend in a locker once in grade school. We were goofing around, best friend I ever had, well until I met her sister´s friend, Mrs Clinger. She got me good once with the old pull the chair trick.

I guess I should start making movies.

Rush is now reporting that Ronan Farrow and Janey Mayer (who wrote a derogatory book on Clarence Thomas) are saying what Kavanaugh did was attempted rape.

I do not have words to describe just show disgusting these people are. I can barely write these words because I am so angry and sickened. These people will stop at nothing.

The only good thing is that when this scum took out after Clarence Thomas during his hearings, I was so disgusted with Democrats then, and I was a Democrat, that it led me to leave the Democrat party. I pray that is happening to others today.

FTA, The “matter,” according to the Guardian, involves an alleged event that happened when Kavanaugh was still in high school. He stands accused of some mischief involving he and a friend locking a female student in a room. She found a way out. He was 17 years old at the time.

How is that sexual misconduct? Sounds more like a snipe hunt. Ever heard of those? A high school prank, you lib morons.

Of course it was sexual. The person allegedly locked briefly in a room identified as female while the two 17 year old pranksters self identified as toxic males. What more proof is necessary to convict the two pranksters on MSNBC besides knowing their gender preferences?

Even though nothing happened and nothing was supposed to happen, I am still shocked that these, how do I say, young males giggled when they shut the door. “You better unlock that door, Brett Kavanaugh. I don’t want to climb out that stupid window. Do you hear me? Shoot! If I didn’t like him, I would have yelled.” Just fiction, no different than Feinstein ridiculous smear.

That would have been theft, malicious mischief, reckless endangerment, stealing school property and misogyny, all punishable with 50 years to life. How could the FBI have missed all this??? LOL

Never in my life have I seen such a parade of gloomy faces following a midterm. In the aftermath of most elections, you’ll have the elated victors and the despondent losers. But what makes the 2018 midterms so unique is that everyone, left and right, is moping around with faces so long, Rondo Hatton’s estate is suing for trademark violation. For Republicans, they lost the House and had a bunch of House and Senate seats flipped (here in California, the last remaining GOP Rep has been ushered into an underground bunker for his own safety),

Seems odd that the global warmers have so often and for so long pushed the need to ‘accept the science’ regarding what the weather will or will not do, but when it comes to the most basic of human nature, which is itself based on fundamentals of science, they are so quick to deny that science in favor of their (oddly) weird obsession with ‘fluid’ gender. Here’s the thing. People (with very few exceptions) are born with two possible sets of plumbing. That’s science. That’s Mother Nature. Everything else is a manipulation/deviation of that fact which is NOT ‘progress.’

Taken literally, Nietzsche´s famous aphorism—"What doesn´t kill me makes me stronger"—is not entirely correct. Some things that don´t kill you can still leave you permanently damaged and diminished. Yet in recent years, far too many parents, teachers, school administrators, and students themselves have become taken with the opposite idea—that what doesn´t kill you makes you weaker. They have bought into a myth that students and children are inherently fragile. (Snip) But overwhelming evidence suggests that this approach makes kids less psychologically stable. By over-sheltering kids, we end up exposing them to more serious harm

Jamal Khashoggi was a thoroughly charming and charismatic person. (Snip)Khashoggi’s murder, and the revelation that it had been committed on orders of the government in Riyadh, are a setback to the people of Saudi Arabia and their near-term chances for more constructive engagement with the rest of the world. What I want to discuss, however, has mostly to do with the dishonest, hypocritical posturing by powerful interests that want to exploit decent people’s revulsion at the murder for dark and selfish ends that will not be conducive to human development and peace in the Middle East.

Mainstream conservatives, sometimes rightly mocked as Conservatism, Inc.™, have managed to conserve very little. Instead, during the Bush years and through to the present, their rhetoric and policies demonstrate that they function chiefly as the palace guard for yesterday’s liberalism. The rot of Conservatism, Inc. is so profound, that a great many younger people of a rightish persuasion prefer the term “nationalist” (Snip) At least one reason that official conservatism has done so poorly is that its spokesmen speak in slogans that ignore the expressed concerns of their voters, often devolving into maudlin sentimentality.

SAN DIEGO — As thousands of migrants in a caravan of Central American asylum-seekers converge on the doorstep of the United States, what they won’t find are armed American troops standing guard. Instead they will see cranes installing towering panels of metal bars and troops wrapping concertina wire around barriers while military helicopters fly overhead, carrying border patrol agents to and from locations along the U.S.-Mexico border. That’s because U.S. military troops are prohibited from carrying out law enforcement duties.

She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office. Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day. Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.
