The UniParty Congressional Swamp’s
Meaningless Political FBI/NSA Hearing…

Conservative Tree House, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/20/2017 4:30:23 PM

The Congressional Intelligence Committee hearing today was everything we anticipated it would be. Which is to say it was: insufferable political posturing, pandering and circular parseltongue swirling the drain of non-intellectual gobbledygook. These types of congressional hearings are perfect feed pellets for media pundits to blather endlessly, wax philosophically, and engage in long-winded academic esoteric analyses contrasting the implied meanings of stop signs. However, they are ridiculous for all other purposes. That said, against the backdrop of the espoused intention, and with full acceptance of the historic UniParty Benghazi hearings driven intentionally into the pit of nothingness, prayerfully I’m not

Low expectations is a mild description of what Comey has shown today. Oily and slick. But I didn´t call him weasel.

Dems spreading their own baseless rumors, innuendo and speculation, while shaking Comey and Rogers and hoping something falls out.

Some strong Republicans including Trey Gowdy, Devin Nunez, and a few others trying to keep things cleaned up...

Comey has shown again today that both he and the FBI are rotten to the core. We can only hope that the Justice Department will go after them and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. Begin draining the swamp with them.

All these hearings are dog and pony shows to waste taxpayer money and to gull the public into thinking those congressional pantywaists are actually doing something. Nothing, repeat nothing, ever comes out of them. Lies aren´t even prosecuted for perjury.

It is all a continuation of Kabuki Theater but their makeup is running and their costumes are tattered. The self-important actors are playing to their audience. The media lapdogs are lapping it up and we are no closer to the truth than we ever were.

These investigation/hearings are a mockery of justice. The condescension that rolls off the tongues of these reprobate do nothings is rich. They sit there pontificating from their lofty perches, looking down their noses, desperate to make themselves relevant and fail miserably.

The $30,000 fee Northeastern Illinois University was going to pay former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was just the latest in a series of big fees the financially troubled state school has paid to snag prominent graduation speakers, records show. Despite its money troubles — a Wall Street credit agency just dropped Northeastern deeper into “junk-bond” status — the state university has handed out five-figure fees to each of the speakers at its May commencement events the past four years. That’s in sharp contrast to what’s done at other state schools, also facing tight-money times, including the three University of

WASHINGTON — Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says that it´s absolutely possible for someone to be a member of the Democratic Party and also be against abortion. "Of course," she told Chuck Todd when asked on Sunday´s "Meet The Press." "I have served many years in Congress with members who have not shared my very positive — my family would say aggressive — position on promoting a woman´s right to choose." Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez and Independent Vermont Sen.

The little tent of the Democratic Party just got smaller, as DNC chairman Tom Perez has called for all Democrats to walk in lockstep with Planned Parenthood on the question of abortion rights, effectively ruling out the possibility of “pro-life Democrats.” “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” Perez said in a statement. “That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.” “At a time when women’s rights are under assault from the White House, the Republican Congress, and in

Sixty-seven percent of Americans say the Democratic Party is out of touch with their concerns — that’s more than those who think the Republican Party or President Trump are out of touch with most Americans’ concerns, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll. The national poll found that 62 percent of respondents feel the Republican Party is out of touch with most Americans’ concerns, while 58 percent view President Trump as out of touch. ABC News notes that in March 2014, 48 percent said the Democrats were out of touch with most Americans’ concerns. Three years later, 67 percent of

A new Washington Post poll that declares President Trump as "the least popular president in modern times," waits until the second to last paragraph to reveal another tidbit: He´d still beat Hillary Rodham Clinton if the election were held today and in the popular vote, not just Electoral College. The poll found that Trump´s polls continue to be upside down, with a 42 percent approval and 53 percent disapproval. (Photo) Also unchanged: His base still likes him.

New details are emerging about the FBI’s arrangement with the former British spy who compiled the infamous opposition research dossier on Donald Trump. According to The New York Times, FBI agents met in early October with the former spy, Christopher Steele, to discuss his future work on the dossier. Steele had started compiling research in June on Trump’s potential ties to Russia. He was working for Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that was a client of an ally of Hillary Clinton’s. The Times reports that Steele and the FBI settled on a $50,000 payout if the ex-MI6 agent could




Former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes: A win for

Former President Barack Obama may not be making an endorsement in France´s upcoming presidential election, but his former deputy national security adviser is warning that a win for right-wing leader Marine Le Pen would be "devastating." "A Le Pen victory would be devastating to any mainstream definition of US interests and values since WWII," Ben Rhodes said in a tweet Saturday. (Tweet) Rhodes´ warning is quite a bit more drastic than the measured statement former President Barack Obama´s spokesman put out last week about his conversation with another French candidate, Emmanuel Macron.

This week’s edition of Time Magazine named former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to its list of the 100 Most Influential People. The list breaks down the chosen 100 into five categories: Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Titans, and Icons. Kaepernick appears in the Icons group. In the Time Magazine profile, former SF 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh praised the controversial quarterback’s protest last year of the Star Spangled Banner, “when he boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system by refusing to stand for the national anthem.” Harbaugh made no mention of Kaepernick’s penchant for wearing socks denigrating law

Retail giant Sears said it will close 50 auto centers and 92 underperforming pharmacies inside Kmart stores in a bid to further cut costs in the face of rising red ink. The cuts come just four months after the Hoffman Estates, Illl-based retailer announced it would close 150 Sears and Kmart department stores across the country. At the time, CEO Edward Lampert said the company needed to reduce operating costs by $1 billion. In announcing the new round of closures Friday, Lampert said the cost cuts would now total $1.25 billion. In addition to the auto centers and pharmacies, the

Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Calif., told a sixth grader last week that she should be worried because President Trump is more dangerous than a terrorist. During the Q&A portion of a town hall event held at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, Calif., DeSaulnier took a final question from 11-year-old Eden, according to a report published Saturday. It was past her bedtime and she had given her question to a school staff member to be asked, the report said. The question included an anecdote of how the young girl´s mother cried on election night and how she is personally worried that her

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country. (Snip) James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr

The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia?

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School.

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported. And come the general election the Clintonistas were downright giddy about the edge Big Data

The attendant, whose name was not released by the airline, grabbed the stroller from the woman, who was carrying 15-month-old twins, a passenger who was nearby said.
