FBI-gate: The Outlines of the Story
Are Coming into Focus

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Posted By:magnante, 2/13/2018 8:39:05 AM

Thanks to the work of smart and hardworking (non-mainstream) journalists, we can peek just a bit over the horizon and see where the story of the weaponization of the FBI via a senior-level cabal is going from here. I use the word "story" deliberately, because that is the way public opinion forms itself on major political affairs. The progressives in the media and politics have long understood this. The cast of the story is now set (snip) Last Saturday, we got the first indirect, inferential evidence of a major revelation on its way: there is an informant from among the

Someone in all this has to wake up and say, "No way am I going to prison for this bunch of idiots!" That´s the crack in the dam.

I think the rank and file Democrat dolts are the ones who are going to be the most blindsided by this since they rely on mainstream media for their info. They do not see this one coming.

I hope Gen. Flynn and others who have had to spend millions on lawyers will sue the pants off of the whole bunch. Over the years, the Clintons have cost us, the American taxpayers, billions in investigations into their scandals. They should be forced to pay us back with interest.

I love the analogy that "the train has left the station" on this whole thing. There is too much known now for the MSM or the Dims to cover-up. The past wrongs done by the O administration are now coming out.

Priestap is singing like a bird to save his skin.. thanks to Comey throwing him under the bus. He was taken off guard, and his usual polished lies were lacking by that point in the hearing. Go back and watch it.. he was completely not expecting it, and he had to make a quick decision. Throwing Priestap under the bus was his choice, and not a good one. He knew either way, the FBI was guilty of hiding information from Congressional oversight. That´s obstruction of justice on the part of the FBI. He was Priestap´s boss.. why would he follow an underling´s suggestion if he knew it was so wrong?

#1, I think the crack already happened. The delay is due to the depth of compromising that had occurred. Just my opinion.

Our domestic enemies aren´t playing tiddly-winks, they are deadly serious, just not out in the open.

Oh, #4, I think you VASTLY underestimate the MSM and Dims´ ability, working together, to frame this and sell it to the populace as a dastardly attack by the evil Republicans and conservatives on the heroic and worshipful Obama and the sainted Hillary. Facts? They´ll never mention facts!

During the Hillary corruption investigation going on across our fruited plain, prior to the election, I recall the Beltway rumor-mill was buzzing with talk of FBI agents ready to resign if PIAPS was allowed to walk. Comey stepped in with two, left-club-feet, and announced a ´non-verdict,´ sans Loretta Lynch, and nothing more was said. I don´t believe those disgruntled FBI career officers went anywhere and are waiting to be heard about what they learned regarding the Clinton Foundation and other nefarious Dem venues.

There Is Only One Sure Way

American Thinker, by Patricia McCarthy    Original Article

Not only is it hard to imagine the anger and grief the families of those killed by Nikolas Cruz are in at their Florida high school; it is impossible. (snip) Israel learned the hard way. A terrorist school shooting forty years ago took the lives of over a hundred elementary school children. Since then, any school in Israel with a hundred students or more has armed guards and staff with concealed weapons. Why do we in America value our air travelers, our congresspeople, celebrities, the employees and contents of all public buildings, museums, etc. more than we treasure our schoolchildren?

"We´re not compromising school safety. We´re really saving the lives of kids," boasted Michaelle Valbrun-Pope, executive director of Student Support Initiatives for Broward County Public Schools, in August 2017. Valbrun-Pope was referring to what an article by Jeffrey Benzing in Public Source calls the "Broward County Solution." As Benzing relates, Broward County used to lead the state of Florida in sending students to the state´s juvenile justice system. County leaders responded with a perfectly progressive solution: "lower arrests by not making arrests." Authorities agreed to treat twelve different misdemeanor offenses as school-related issues, not criminal ones. The results impressed the

The effort to explain away Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump began as a propaganda operation the morning after the election results came in. So skepticism is warranted toward everything you hear from the media and even from the Mueller probe itself; it is, after all, the spawn of Hillary’s campaign-sponsored Steele Dossier and staffed by rabid partisans who donate only to Democrats. Ever since the 13 indictments were announced last Friday, exactly in time to distract public attention from the FBI’s bungling that cost 17 people their lives in Parkland, Florida, we have been hearing about “millions” of dollars spent

You know the drill because we’ve seen the same story so many times. Reports come in that scientists have discovered declining populations of a species of some sort, somewhere. Scientists study. For quite some time, they come up with no good answer. Concern grows. For maximum publicity and popular hand-wringing, it helps to be cuddly, cute, exotic, beautiful, or funny critters. But even if they are repulsive, sooner or later, global warming is blamed. Conclusion: We’re doomed! Because: Science. Apply this model to the following account drawn from West Hunter: Starting in late 80s, herpetologists began noticing that various kinds

If your hackles are not yet up concerning the outlook for highly indebted multinational companies such as GE in a possible looming crisis of 2018, they ought to be. (snip) It wasn´t "easy being green" for GE under Obama. Under Jeff Immelt from March 2009 through his departure in 2017, GE´s directors, executives, and professional advisers evidently learned little from their "near-death" experience. Perhaps Immelt should have spent less time working with President Obama and more time on his day job at GE. Early on, Immelt cheered the Obama administration´s reckless attempt to stimulate the American economy by throwing almost

Aaron Feis was the right man in the right place at the right time, but was legally prevented from using the right, constitutionally protected tool to do the job. Mr. Feis was shot on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, shielding students from a killer with his own body.

Pennsylvania’s Constitutional Crisis

Posted By: magnante- 2/19/2018 5:58:29     Post Reply
In a repeat of the state’s extraordinary role in the 2016 presidential election, this year Pennsylvania will be the center of a serious constitutional challenge. At stake may be the entire congressional balance of power between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats in PA are attempting to do through the courts what they were not able to do at the ballot box. They are assuming that the woes of their cause are due to redistricting, not to failed policies repudiated by the electorate. Trump’s stunning statewide victory in Pennsylvania in 2016 had absolutely nothing to do with gerrymandering. As background, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania

Why did Mueller´s indictments skip over

Robert Mueller’s indictments announced Friday are most notable for what Sherlock Holmes famously called “The dog that didn’t bark.” There was a clear, obvious, and pertinent statute that could have been applied to the alleged crimes but wasn’t. Fortunately, the blogosphere has our own Sherlock Holmes on the case, Powerline’s John Hinderaker, who noticed the charge that was not made (snip) So why weren’t they charged with the most pertinent crime they committed? Because Christopher Steele arguably violated the same law. He is a foreign national, and he contributed a “thing of value” to the Hillary Clinton campaign, namely the

When I was in art school, studying pretentious subjects alongside pretentious students taught by pretentious professors, we had the privilege of learning about basic forms of visual expression, expressed at their highest levels. (snip) The recently unveiled Obama portraits are of a type that I have seen many times in my career as an artist and art historian. The poses are wooden, the compositions hackneyed, and both subjects have obviously been copied from photographs. To make up for the technical weakness of the painting´s execution, the artist relies on gimmicks to drag their image over the finish line, hoping that

Mueller Worked with Lerner

Just when you thought the Deep State swamp couldn´t get any murkier and the stench any more repugnant, we are reminded by Judicial Watch´s Tom Fitton in a Feb. 13 tweet of how Robert Mueller´s FBI worked with Lois Lerner´s IRS to target Tea Party and other groups in the run-up to the Obama re-election campaign (snip) The irony is that the same Robert Mueller now investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election cooperated with Lois Lerner and the IRS to intervene on President Obama´s behalf in the lead-up to the 2012 presidential election.

With former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s guilty plea likely to be set aside, the indictments announced yesterday by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, in tenor, scope, and timing, are a desperate attempt by Mueller to save his crumbling collusion investigation from complete failure. (snip) Friday afternoon at the beginning of a three-day weekend is probably one of the worst times to release something big, something that could shake to its core the very foundation of the Trump administration, because most Americans will pay little attention to this beyond reading the headlines -- at least until Tuesday when they return to

The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either. Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

He has no idea how to make a majority of voters choose him. Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington,” he says in announcing his Senate campaign. Maybe. There’s always been something unstable about Mitt Romney’s political identity.

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

The corner of Atlantic and Bedford Avenues in Crown Heights is Ground Zero of this middle-income neighborhood’s high anxiety. For the last two years, neighbors have complained to anyone who will listen that groups of men become an occupying force in the sidewalks around the huge 350-bed Atlantic Armory Men’s Shelter. On several recent mornings, the men were out en masse. Two Department of Homeless Services police officers leaned against the fence outside the 800-bed red-brick shelter. About 50 feet away a man nonchalantly urinated against the facility wall. Across Pacific St., men were sprawled on chairs and milk crates.
