Russia ‘Collusion’ Story Is Blowing
Up Like the Hindenburg

Polizette, by Conrad Black

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 10/27/2017 6:30:11 AM

It is delicious to see, even more suddenly and completely than anyone had anticipated, the breakdown of the steamroller media smear of Donald Trump. A trinitarian deus ex machina descended. The Washington Post, struggling desperately in its discomfort, a few days ahead of the information being forcibly extracted by congressional subpoenas, acknowledged that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee had paid for the assembly of the Steele dossier. This rotten fish of lies and gossip was universally regarded at first as rubbish so scurrilous no one would publish it for months until Buzzfeed, the bottom of the web barrel, took

As new things are discovered every day lately one of these days we´re gonna find out those two Grifters have up and bugged out to someplace in the world where they can´t be extradited! I hope someone is keeping a close watch on them!

Hard to believe that all of this has been “debunked”. Hilly might want to start looking about for a place without extradition....

I suspect that the enemedia will do everything necessary to make sure that the Hillaryburg doesn´t actually blow up but just kind of slowly flies around backward with the air leaking out slowly like a party balloon until it ends up limply deflated on the newsroom floor.

good article. As much as I had hoped this news would enlighten some on the left to what a bunch of scoundrels they have admired all these years, it looks like its business as usual. From all I have watched and read, the Dems are in full defense mode.

I just watched AB Stoddard defend Mueller´s investigation as very important because.. you know, Trump´s firing of Comey is/might be "obstruction of justice". I heard that last night as well.

So this is the defense. No amount of facts and truths ever top the innuendo of that mind set.

The leak to the Washington Post was a deliberate and calculated act by the bad guys to limit the damage and hopefully prevent or at least postpone the unmasking of even more damaging information — the CIA calls this tactic a “hang out” and the term was immortalized during Watergate by John Ehlichman’s screwball “modified limited hang out” defense. The results of the Fake Dossier “hang out” have been so astoundingly damaging — the Mueller witch hunt has been turned upside down, key figures (Podesta, Hillary, Washerwoman Schultz, their lawyer Elias) have been exposed as bald-faced liars, etc. etc. — thst it is hard to imagine what worse information the bad guys are still hoping to hide. A prediction: the nuclear weapons experts, who are able to trace “fingerprints” identifying the original source of fissile material, have proof positive that quantities of the US uranium put into Putin’s paws through the treachery and corruption of Obama and Hillary have been found in the nuclear weapons programs and activities of our mortal enemies Iran and North Korea. The coming explosion is real — and it is shaped like a mushroom cloud.

Raised eyebrow on a few points: "But at the least, considering their ambitions to move back into the White House, the Clintons should have been more careful." Been more careful?! The Clintons were falling down all over themselves to cheat in every manner they could think of. Winning on their own merits, honestly, wasn´t even remotely within their realm of thinking.

"Whatever anyone might have done, unless the Clintons took outright bribes for defined illegal services (very unlikely), the whole miasma should be blown away amid a consensus to stop and not to revive this baleful practice of criminalizing policy differences and political rivalries." What consensus, by whom? Not democrats, ever. Miasma blown away, policy differences, even exonerating President Nixon, as well as Bill Clinton?! Now that´s rich! This author is naive and sounds like Peggy Noonan, "coming to the rescue", with airy cliches to tamp down our concerns.

Sorry, Conrad. Hate to disagree but Bill Clinton did commit perjury and also subborned perjury with Bettie Curry. He absolutely deserved to be impeached.

Otherwise good article.

FTA: ´There was no excuse for impeaching Bill Clinton, and, although he came close, he did not perjure himself. His were not the most stylish peccadilloes any American president has committed, but that had nothing to do with his fitness to serve out his term. There was no more reason to impeach him than there was poor Andrew Johnson in 1868.´ Maybe Black is just a little cozier with fellow-hoser Giustra and his goomba Bubba than he´s willing to let on. Yeah, WJC never lied about anything; he was a standup guy...well, part of him.

#5 is on to something. After the first "wow" reaction, I too wondering "why now"? And the WP? Having Clinton thrown under the bus.. and DWS.... who cares? "At this point, what difference does it make?"

The right runs to the dossier like lemmings, and get all wee weed up with that.... ignoring the bigger picture here. I think they hoped no one would continue with the bank records request. Or what that the FBI (Comey) used the dossier to start the whole unmasking charade to get Trump.

He has to know Manafort was involved with Podesta and the Russians more than he was involved with Trump and the Russians. Comey is the lynch pin. If the DOJ can´t see this.. we have no hope congress can get to the bottom of it. They will circle the wagons and protect the bureau at all costs.

I also have a problem with Black´s pass of BJ Clintoon.

Clinton agreed to a five-year suspension of his Arkansas law license in order to head off any criminal charges for lying under oath about his relationship with Lewinsky.

Clinton, facing the possibility of being barred from practicing law before the U.S. Supreme Court because of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, resigned the SCOTUS bar instead.

Clinton paid a $25,000 fine over the Lewinsky incident.

The federal judge who found President Clinton in contempt of court levied a penalty of $90,686 against him, making him the first chief executive ever assessed such a payment.

In 1994, Paula Jones filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Bill Clinton. It was finally settled in November 1998 with a check for $850,000.

This level of exposure for a President was astonishing. You KNOW the pressure brought to bear to make this go away. If he escaped perjury charges it was because back room negotiations worked it out and dropped it down to "making false statements" which amounts to practically the same thing but with less legal "punch".

This kind of equivalence is how people like the Clintoons get away with stuff. BJ Clintoon is a sexual preditor. He is a crook. He is a liar.

The Democrats are a criminal enterprise. They tried to overturn the 2000 election by demanding a recount in Florida and stuffing the ballot box in Dade County. Only the intervention of the Supreme Court put a stop to that fraud. Then this election, the Democrats have gotten a Special Prosecutor appointed from day 1 of the Trump presidency in an effort to have him driven from office. As for this article on Nixon competency, Nixon was an economic moron, advocating wage price controls, rather addressing out of control government spending, which is where the problem lay.

Black writes well-edited, polished English with a tendency to pretentiousness. This may simply be a reflection of the world he lives in. However, rather than concern himself solely with the way he expresses himself, he needs to make a greater effort to edit his facts. Posters above have made that clear.

The media are absorbed by The Narrative. Simply massaging that narrative to express a confined opinion is not very informative to the reader. The reader prefers to read, even if it is not an elaborate composition, something of factual and substantive content. In other words, Mr. Black, surely what is said is far more important than the way it is said.

Many people despise politicians for their compulsion to confine their statements to style over substance, even if their style is shoddy. Fallacious narratives give political writers a sense of reality while being in no way connected to reality. Mr. Back the truth is rather simple, in spite of the long promoted view that it isn´t. A crook is a crook no matter how the details are massaged.

What I can´t understand is that there is so much information floating around about how illegal it is, then why isn´t someone been arrested now? Or at least why a grand jury hasn´t been convened? Good grief, there is a ton of written information, e-mails, a just about all the information can be moved around. It seems that our federal polices (the DOJ and FBI) are not able to do an investigation nowadays or simply don´t want to. At some point, someone has to step it and get the ball rolling. And it looks that President Trump is going to be the one to do so.

The Clinton and the Obama crews along with the liberal and socialist Democrats in general are going to have their contrived Special Counsel come out and change the bogus “Trump colluded with the Russians” story pretty quickly, by making new allegations against Trump and his crew that their liberal media allies can run with. As what is going on now is making the liberal and socialist Democrats, and the Clinton and Obama crews look damn bad criminally and politically.

Trump Jr. cites attorney-client

Politico, by Kyle Cheney    Original Article

Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday cited attorney-client privilege to avoid telling lawmakers about a conversation he had with his father, President Donald Trump, after news broke this summer that the younger Trump — and top campaign brass — had met with Russia-connected individuals in Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign. Though neither Trump Jr. nor the president is an attorney, Trump Jr. told the House Intelligence Committee that there was a lawyer in the room during the discussion, according to the committee’s top Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff of California. Schiff said he didn’t think it was a legitimate invocation of attorney-client

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — Rand Paul was on the verge of becoming a powerful senator and the nation’s leading libertarian. His neighbor was a successful doctor and Kennedy-style Democrat who favored nationalized medicine.

Lena Dunham may be the first person to fabricate details of her alleged rape, then proclaim all women’s claims need to be believed, and then publicly accuse a young woman of lying about having been raped. Finally, the star and creator of “Girls” has been exposed as the empty vessel she is. “Girls” was never the smart, generational criticism Dunham always claimed; really, it was just a smuttier, younger “Sex and the City.” Nor is there as much daylight between Dunham and her shallow, entitled character Hannah Horvath as she’d have us believe. “I think I might be the voice of a generation,”

One year ago, Megyn Kelly was on top of the world. Her nightly Fox News program The Kelly File had briefly unseated The O’Reilly Factor at the top of the ratings. The host had begun – despite a 12-year tenure at the network of Roger Ailes – to ingratiate herself with conservatives and liberals alike. She even seemed, for a moment, impervious to the fickle nature of newscasting: the critics who excoriated her history of racially insensitive remarks would just as easily anoint her a feminist firebrand for her takedowns of Newt Gingrich and Anthony Weiner.

The financial institutions, which made legal settlements with the Obama administration regarding mortgage securities that imploded during the 2008 financial crisis, include Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., and JPMorgan Chase.

Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”

A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump´s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson´s policies. Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford´s letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority, and shows disdain for the State Department´s diplomatic work.
