Jeff Sessions and Christopher Wray
Suffering From Severe Battered
Institutional Syndrome…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 6/18/2018 12:08:13 PM

For about eight months columnist Andrew McCarthy appeared on television and wrote dozens of articles about the slow-drip of information stemming from the Trump-Russia probe and the IG Horowitz investigation. Almost all of the articles were sympathetic to the institutions being challenged. However, in mid-May a funny thing happened. The weekend before May 15th McCarthy actually broke down and read the six-month-old Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages he had been delivering opinion on; and guess what happened? Yup, his perspective changed within a period of 36-hours, and with it – a radical shift in tone and delivery. In

Comments:
This article is not about McCarthy. It is about Sessions and Wray, who could not have read the entire IG report. It strongly appears that, although briefed on the report, they did not read it. 400some pages. Thus the strong evidence represented by the facts in the report did not get through to them. Their positions reflect their underinformed state, which brings on “Battered Institutional Syndrome”.

This is another longish but very worthwhile read.

BTW, Horowitz’s appearance before the Senate committee is being televised live via CSpan2 - 2 PM ET.

Totally concur with #1. However, what´s the chance that this will happen? That´s why they are all complicit to throw the mid-term election to the Dems, so that they can keep their jobs and the president´s hands are tied what he can do! Should they win, I would suggest that the president goes ahead anyway and throws the top tier of the DOJ and the FBI out.

No, they are being battered because they, themselves, are personally compromised and are doing the bidding of the Deep State, and more and more people who once thought them an answer to prayers begin to realize that they have been a curse instead.

Trump needs to wise up. He would not like to hear that. He thinks he has things figured. First fire Rosy. Booregard has promised to resign if it happens. Give him 30 days or else. these two are like a beaver dam. Holding back water for swampers to use to hide.

Meghan Markle is faking her
smile, says her father
Page Six, by Tamar Lapin    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/15/2018 11:45:23     Post Reply
Meghan Markle‘s smile is hiding fear, stress and the pressure of adjusting to her new royal duties, her father said in an interview published Sunday. “I think she is terrified,” Thomas Markle told The Sun. “I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile.” “I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now,” he added. “This is a pained smile.”The newly-minted Duchess of Sussex, 36, is struggling to cope with the transition from TV actress to a member of the royal

NATO Now Serves the Interests of

If we’re to believe the recent NATO summit’s communique and the mainstream media’s commentaries about it, the alliance serves roughly the same essential purpose today as it did in 1948, and Americans had better heed European Council President Donald Tusk’s thinly veiled warning: rein in President Trump’s criticisms of NATO, because its members are about the only allies America has got. But although the people who run today’s European and American societies are perhaps closer to each other than in 1948—which accounts for their dogged defense of “the alliance”—in fact, they themselves have changed in ways that obviate the purposes for

Peter Strzok’s Affair is
a National Security Crisis
American Greatness, by Brandon J. Weichert    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/15/2018 10:40:50     Post Reply
FBI agent Peter Strzok held one of the most important national security positions in the entire bloated federal government. Strzok was the chief of the counterespionage section of the FBI. While working in that capacity, Strzok oversaw the FBI’s much-maligned investigation into Hillary Clinton’s personal email server. Strzok’s fingers were in several other major investigations, as well: most of those related to Russia, the Trump campaign, and Hillary Clinton. After 2016, Strzok was promoted to deputy director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division. Watching Strzok’s recent, explosive, testimony one might get the impression that the Republicans are on a witch hunt

(Video) A member of the House Committee on the Judiciary said during a hearing Thursday that a government watchdog found that nearly all of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails were sent to a foreign entity and that the FBI didn’t follow-up on that finding. The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep.

One of the reasons cable television pundits are so useless is that they give a microscopic view of Washington (which is a pretty boring and colorless place) when they need to look at the big picture. They follow events too closely. Consider Ben Shapirio´s take, "Why The Peter Strzok Hearing Was A Giant Waste Of Time." Wrong. The Strzok hearing showed this loon for who he is.(Snip) "The hearing did not, however, clear up the central question surrounding Strzok: in which way, precisely, did Strzok’s bias affect the Russian collusion investigation?" Oh he is so wrong, reading his words can

FISA Abuse: It is the Risk,

The prior use of FBI and NSA networks for metadata exploitation and political surveillance is what underlines all of the current activity taking place within the current political battle. Peel all of the layers of investigative schemes, intelligence deception, false and distracting media narratives -including Mueller- and what lies beneath it all is the weaponized use of database-collected material for political surveillance and exploitation. It really is that simple.Seriously. Every motive and every action and reaction is directly connected to the need to hide what was taking place in 2015 and 2016 between officials within the DOJ, FBI and U.S. intelligence

President Trump managed to ruffle a few feathers during his visit to Great Britain this week before Air Force One even stroked the runway. Then, when he arrived, he nuked the entire country. The disruptor-in-chief, sugar-blooded from shaking a few defense pennies from spendthrift NATO allies, brawled into Prime Minister Theresa May’s headspace, saying her current Brexit deal wasn’t what 17.4 million Brits voted for. He was just warming the crowd. President Trump then gave an interview to our most influential newspaper, The Sun As you can imagine, the garrulous Guy Fawkes went wild. Trump told The Sun that Prime Minister May had

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page on Friday afternoon faced a grilling from House Republicans keen to uncover any discrepancies between her testimony and Peter Strzok’s, the counterintelligence agent who testified in public for 10 hours the day before. (Snip)The appearance of FBI counsel in the interview with Page, who left the bureau in May, also frustrated Republicans Friday. “Lisa Page is not an FBI employee, but the FBI was here providing counsel and giving her direction as to which questions to answer or not answer and there is a question as to the propriety of that before the House,” said

If you are old enough to remember the Soviet-era propaganda approximately five years prior to the Polish solidarity movement, you are old enough to have a solid frame of reference for today’s announcement from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. (Snip)While the DOJ document is full of detailed accusations; which has given the narrative engineers a great deal of fuel; there’s a specific aspect missing. The entire indictment (full pdf below) is based on the premise of the FBI conducting some -unexplained and unsubstantiated- form of forensic data-analysis to formulate their detailed conclusions. However, can anyone explain how this FBI forensic

POTUS TRUMP Calls Out Deep State –
“Where Is The DNC Server?”

It’s a valid question and one that should be front and center of any media coverage of Rod Rosenstein’s bizarre “we’re indicting twelve Russian nationals” performance yesterday. Mr. Rosenstein (publicly) claims these Russians hacked the DNC while at the same time keeping quiet about the fact the FBI has never directly reviewed the actual DNC server to verify said hack. This fact raises a myriad of questions. Why did the DNC refuse access? Why were they even allowed to refuse access given such a hack would be considered a potential breach of national security. What was the DNC hiding? What

London Mayor Sadiq Khan slammed President Trump’s criticism of him as “preposterous” after allowing a giant Trump balloon at anti-Trump protests in London, but critics question whether the mayor should be devoting his energy to tackling crime rather than “embarrassing” the city in front of the whole world. Trump reignited the feud with Khan in an interview with The Sun newspaper, saying the Mayor of London “has done a terrible job” when it comes to terrorism and crime. “I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all

Republican lawmakers contend that former FBI lawyer Lisa Page provided new information during private testimony Friday that further convinces them political bias marred the investigations of Hillary Clinton’s emails and the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia. Though they offered no specifics, several GOP congressmen characterized Page as “cooperative,” “forthcoming” and “transparent” during her interview with the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees. The closed-door session lasted nearly five hours and was expected to resume Monday afternoon.

Hillary Clinton had strong words for the Trump administration and Republicans on Friday while addressing the American Federation of Teachers, saying the fundamental rights of Americans are what’s at stake this November. Speaking at the labor union’s conference in Pittsburgh, Mrs. Clinton slammed the administration’s separations of families at the border as inhumane and indecent. “I believe with all my heart that the test of any society is how we treat the most vulnerable among us, particularly our youngest, our oldest, our people with disabilities, and right now, my friends, our country is failing that test,” she said. “We have

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Fox News host Dana Perino on Thursday night called for congressional hearings to be taken off-camera following a wild hearing with FBI agent Peter Strzok earlier in the day. Perino slammed Democrats for an "outrageous" suggestion Strzok deserved a Purple Heart and scolded Republicans for "overboard" questions that "felt like a public lynching" during Strzok´s testimony to the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform committees. The comments from the former George W. Bush press secretary came after Strzok´s testimony dominated headlines and broadcast news on Thursday.

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.
