Democrats Have Abandoned Civil Liberties – Reporting by Matt Taibbi

Emmet G. Sullivan, the judge in the case of former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, is refusing to let William Barr’s Justice Department drop the charge. He’s even thinking of adding more, appointing a retired judge to ask “whether the Court should issue an Order to Show Cause why Mr. Flynn should not be held in criminal contempt for perjury.”

Pundits are cheering. A trio of former law enforcement and judicial officials saluted Sullivan in the Washington Post, chirping, “The Flynn case isn’t over until a judge says it’s over.” Yuppie icon Jeffrey Toobin of CNN and the New Yorker, one of the #Resistance crowd’s favored legal authorities, described Sullivan’s appointment of Judge John Gleeson as “brilliant.” MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner said Americans owe Sullivan a “debt of gratitude.”

One had to search far and wide to find a non-conservative legal analyst willing to say the obvious, i.e. that Sullivan’s decision was the kind of thing one would expect from a judge in Belarus. George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley was one of the few willing to say Sullivan’s move could “could create a threat of a judicial charge even when prosecutors agree with defendants.”

Are We Seeing A Chink In The Armor?

A Very Wicked Witch

Washington Post congressional reporter Rachael Bade said, “She was clearly putting a positive spin on what a lot of Democrats have privately said was a failed strategy.”

Now Bade is talking about Nancy Pants holding back the articles of impeachment, and it’s significant were starting to see this level talk about moderates questioning Nancy Pants, but when these people wake up and smell the coffee, they’ll come to realize The Impeachment™ is a failed strategy.

The entire rush to have impeachment hearings and a vote in the time and manner in which Nancy Pants and Adam Schitt orchestrated it (Quite possibly with willing help from the left wing news media I might add.), was meant to preempt the release of Michael Horowitz report and his testimony on the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

Top story: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS!

Other stories: Horowitz reports widespread FISA abuse, largely vindicating Devin Nunes

Nancy Pants not sending the article to the Senate, under the same rules by which Bill Clinton was impeached, is a tacit admission by Nancy Pants that the democrats have nothing, and the impeachment would quickly die in the Senate.

Watch the video at the link, and you’ll probably get a real laugh too, when George Stephanopoulos, the left wing Shill that he is, had to rush in there to prop up Nancy Pants.

The fact is, democrats never hid which way they were going to vote when Clinton had his Senate trial, so spare me your crocodile tears about Cocaine Mitch. Ok, Georgie?

You fucking hack.

Over the coming months, as it becomes clearer and clearer what they democrats were up to over the past 5 years, the harder protecting democrats will become for the left wing media… but I suppose Glenn Greenwald will be satisfied.

Left Wingers are Dimwitted

The left is chasing this whole Ukraine “charge” like dimwitted cops in a movie trying to take down our anti-hero.

The dimwitted left wingers are taking the bait again. This time on this “email” from an official in the Pentagon. All the email really tells you is someone didn’t like the hold up. What it doesn’t change at all is the aid was delivered within the time allotted, even though it wasn’t delivered as soon as it was released.

But in the end, the left just can’t help themselves. They’re operating on the assumption Biden was destined to win the DNC nomination. Don’t try to convince them, but that absolutely, positively never was assured, unless there’s corruption. Consequently, that was always a weak argument, because there’s plenty of reason for people to reject Biden.

Biden’s mental health, first and foremost, is on a lot of people’s mind. There are far too many physical health concerns as well, considering the sudden blood vessel rupture on national tv and the tired look he seems to have. Overall, Biden often seems out of it on stage when out campaigning.

Anyone who thinks Biden is some kind of shoe-in is out of their mind, because history has shown repeatedly, a person can come out of nowhere and get the nomination weeks out from the convention. All it requires is an existing candidate to pledge their delegates to the new candidate. It can also happen during the nominating convention itself… It’s called a brokered convention.

Democrats need someone who can actually spar linguistically with Trump on stage, with the same energy level, all without making a clown of themselves.

Do you really think Biden could do that? Trump will probably have Biden so pissed off, he’d burst blood vessels in both eyes and have a stroke on the spot.

To make matters worse, democrat dimwittedness prevents them from understanding that tugging on the “Ukraine” string, helps Trump and undoes Biden.

It wasn’t until after the Council on Foreign Relations conference in 2018, where Joe Biden gleefully retold the story of firing the prosecutor investigating Burisma, that Trump started reaching out to Ukraine.

Trump supporters understand this, and Trump supporters also think, with just cause I might add, that something dirty was going on in Ukraine with the Bidens. Anyone with even a passing understanding of the situation can’t help, but see it as dirty. MSNBC, CNN, and other news outlets will ignore this story to their own peril. If they actually did some, you know, reporting, they would have known a long time ago the Steele Dossier was bullshit, and the Biden-Ukraine story is the real deal. Ignoring the story, like ignoring the FISA abuse story, doesn’t make it go away. All that Trump is doing is dangling this string, which helps bring the story to light.

But what really exposes the absolute and total hypocrisy of the left’s entire outrage theatre is that it’s premised on the idea a president and his administration can’t ask a foreign country to conduct an investigation of person from an opposing political party who’s running for president. They’re so certain of this angle, but it seems they’ve forgotten that argument undercuts the “legality” of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. See, that investigation involved a president giving approval to the FBI to solicit foreign assistance in investigating a candidate for president of an opposing party.

Are they trying to say, “What’s good for the goose, isn’t good for the gander?”

I would conclude yes, but so many dyed in the wool left wingers seem to think Obama using the FBI made it all ok and legitimate.

Really? Really? REALLY?

Well, now we know the investigation was started on the barest of “predication” in July of 2016. The investigators ignored any exculpatory evidence or it was altered. I’d imagine the FBI did this to keep the investigation going as long as possible. By February of 2017, the FBI knew the Steele Dossier was total bs, but they kept that to themselves, and the left wing worked tirelessly to keep up the charade.

It’s almost like MSNBC doesn’t think we the people don’t go back and look at old episodes of Madcow. That woman is Alex Jones level of certifiableness. She’s insane. So insane in fact, I bet she looks under her bed every night just to make sure Putin isn’t hiding under there.

Don Lemon and black holes… need I say more?

That kind of news isn’t really in demand anymore, except to the true believers.

If MSNBC and the rest were smart, instead of trying to make a federal case out of Trump asking for an investigation, instead seriously look into what the president wanted investigated. If they did that, instead of chasing the dwindling numbers of true believers they could increase their viewers simply by being fair.

Stop worrying, the Horowitz Report is perfect!

The report shows all the wrong doing we’ve argued had occurred in fact did occur

The left wing in the media and congress are cherry picking out of the report the phrase, “We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions.”

The left are hanging all their hopes on that, while totally ignoring the rest of the report… as if that sentence makes all else in the report irrelevant, or better somehow.

But, I think John Durham has something to say about that which the left hangs their hopes. He’ll release his report soon.

The funny thing is, the Nunes Report from last year claimed the Carter Page FISA warrant relied primary on the Steele Dossier, among other things.

The left wing media and their sock puppets online all claimed he was wrong and it was a distraction. The insults cast at Nunes were disgusting, frankly.

Horowitz Report: “We determined that the Crossfire Hurricane team’s receipt of Steele’s election reporting on September 19, 2016 played a central and essential role in the FBI’s and Department’s decision to seek the FISA order. ”

Nunes is totally vindicated. He was right. Nunes also asserted that Peter Strzok was the one who decided to use the Steele propaganda.

Horowitz Report: “We determined that the FBI’s decision to rely upon Steele’s election reporting to help establish probable cause that Page was an agent of Russia was a judgment reached initially by the case agents on the Crossfire Hurricane team.”

Peter Strzok was in charge of Crossfire Hurricane.

Again… Nunes is vindicated.

In the end, Horowitz reported, “at least 17 significant errors or omissions in the Carter Page FISA applications, and many additional errors in the Woods Procedures,” which were the 3 FISA warrants granted after the first one on Carter Page.

To this day, not one allegation in the Steele Dossier has been substantiated in even the least bit.

And Comey? That guy really needs to keep his mouth shut, unless he’s planning on being the fall guy for this debacle. Comey took an action at a key point in time that moved forward onto the next stage the left’s plan to remove Trump. That next stage was getting Mueller appointed to lead an independent council.

An independent council has immense investigative powers and is, as the name suggests, independent of direct oversight. An IC can dig into anything or anyone connected to the target, and Mueller’s team cast a very wide net.

Mueller got some people around Trump, that true, but the thing the poor left wing losers can’t get over is he found nothing on Trump.

I’m as surprised as the left. I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016, because Trump sure as hell acts like a shady used car salesman, and I figured he was corrupt somehow. Consequently, I figured Mueller would find something, but when all we saw coming from the IC was the squeezing of Trump associates, and half the people charged were charged for process crimes, I knew Mueller had nothing at all…

It was a fishing expedition and Trump survived it.

Trump is cleaner than I imagined, so I decided to vote for Trump in 2020.

I think the democrats lost many people right there. Those of us who understood the power of an independent council knew if there were anything if Trump was corrupt, Mueller would find it.

The real problem is there’s a cancer in our bureaucracy… Setting political motivations aside, we’ve had people, whether acting individually or in concert with others, engaged in actions that undermined a duly elected President.

Trump is doing what voters elected him to do…

  • NAFTA fixed or scrapped.
  • get tough with China on trade.
  • no more trade agreements, particularly with China.
  • regulatory and tax relief.
  • don’t go into Syria.
  • American immigration laws enforced.
  • better border security… a wall would be nice… with deadly alligators maybe. 😉
  • stop giving foreign aid to corrupt countries!

The point being, the things Trump’s doing aren’t illegal. They’re actions Trump’s voters wanted, but there are elements in the bureaucracy fighting Trump as if his actions are illegal. Sadly, many elements in our media are helping to sell that narrative.

Me thinks they’re invested in an outcome… quite literally invested.

Well, I guess, at this point, mere freedom is a motivator. Bureaucrats fighting Trump have their very freedom at stake. As we well know, Durham has his own investigation, and it’s a criminal investigation. Given Horowitz’ report on the Hillary email server investigation, combined with his report on Crossfire Hurricane, anyone with half a brain should see where Durham’s investigation is headed.

There’s a lot of people sweating, and there’s a lot of left wingers in government and media trying to help them cover it up… sadly.

But I see the incremental destruction of this house of cards, and it does fill me with hope justice will be served.

Science Alert: Some of The World’s Most-Cited Scientists Have a Secret That’s Just Been Exposed

This is a big part of the reason you should be skeptical of climate change propaganda

A new study has revealed an unsettling truth about the citation metrics that are commonly used to gauge scientists’ level of impact and influence in their respective fields of research.

Citation metrics indicate how often a scientist’s research output is formally referenced by colleagues in the footnotes of their own papers – but a comprehensive analysis of this web of linkage shows the system is compromised by a hidden pattern of behaviour that often goes unnoticed.

Specifically, among the 100,000 most cited scientists between 1996 to 2017, there’s a stealthy pocket of researchers who represent “extreme self-citations and ‘citation farms’ (relatively small clusters of authors massively citing each other’s papers),” explain the authors of the new study, led by physician turned meta-researcher John Ioannidis from Stanford University.
