Scooter Libby Redux

Am I the only person getting a creepy Scooter Libby deja vu on this whole “Trump Campaign Russian Collusion” question?

Look at the similarities.

There’s a whole wildly exaggerated “threat to national security” claim. If you’ll remember select folks (Democrats) were claiming that CIA desk jockey Valerie Plame was practically America’s top spy and now we have folks (Democrats once again) claiming that Russia did something that somehow affected a handful of voters in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to vote for Trump or not vote for Hillary. Something vague. Yet in reality it’s obviously a nothingburger on the national security front.

Then there’s the seemingly endless promise that there’s more, if only investigators will look deeper they’ll tie the whole administration into the story and a president will need to be impeached.

Meanwhile, one begins to get the funny feeling that everything that is known is all there is and in the end we’ll discover that five minutes after the investigators started working they already knew the answers. Remember how Patrick Fitzgerald knew who leaked Plame’s name, the putative point of the whole investigation, on Day One. It was Colin Powell aide Richard Armitage not Libby yet Fitzgerald, Javert-like, extended his “investigation” endlessly. Ultimately he caught Libby in a perjury so rickety that Fitzgerald should have been the one sent to jail for abuse of office. Armitage never faced any consequences over the leaking of the name of America’s top secret spy…

We already know the extent of the “collusion.” It’s minimal, coincidental and going nowhere. The whole nut revolves around an unpaid bit-campaign advisor whose business posting several years ago was in Moscow. Throw in the Flynn call to the Russian ambassador to lay some groundwork for Flynn’s upcoming job (not that unusual) and that’s it. Oh, yeah, Trump may have once eaten at the Russian Tea Room or attended a performance of Swan Lake or seen a matroshka doll…

Yet we have the FBI tied up in knots over it all and Democrats in unison demanding another Fitzgerald fishing expedition (which will feel compelled to get a scalp, any scalp, to justify their phony-baloney jobs and all the hot air the Democrats and their media parrots have exhaled).

And of course there’s the great unsaid – Obama’s mockery of Mitt Romney’s warnings on the danger of Russia and Obama’s swearing of fealty to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev in 2012.

Oh, and there’s this from Investors Business Daily pointing out that there was more actual “Russian Collusion” with the Hillary campaign than the Trump campaign. Yet, somehow, that doesn’t get any attention. I wonder why.

And This Guy Goes to Jail?

The Democrats and the media (one and the same) claimed another pair of Republican scalps with the conviction of former Chris Christie aides Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly concerning traffic on a New Jersey bridge. Somehow Baroni and Kelly engineered for the New Jersey transpo people to realign some lanes on the bridge to cause chaos in retaliation for the local mayor’s refusal to endorse Christie’s run for governor.

Yes, monkey with traffic lanes — you know, kind of like what Democrat politicians do all the time when they want to cause chaos to press for more highway funds. “If we only had more (Federal) money we could fix these problems!”

But these were Republicans so the book was tossed at them.

However, my big point is that these two got actual jail time (he two years and she 18 months) for what was a messy political tug of war. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Crime Crew are still free despite committing several high crime felonies, notably the whole email server setup and then lying about it and then destroying evidence and then dissembling to investigators, etc…

Meanwhile, we have a steady state of leakage of classified (anti-Trump) information by Obama holdovers in the government and no one, at least in the Democratic Party or the media, benefiting from these leaks, is demanding investigations and then some hides in jail.

Then we get the Evelyn Farkas revelations that she was an (anti-Trump) information wrangler in the later days of the Obama administration. She had been a deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Obama administration (Oy!) until she left to join the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2015. So, after Hill was put down, Farkas (and others) apparently spent the interlude before Trump was inaugurated collecting and pushing dissemination of negative Trump info throughout Capitol Hill (and the media). Much, if not all of this information, was classified. Oddly, she was apparently, technically, unemployed at the time, yet had quite a bit of access to various intelligence agencies.

It’s wholly possible, and unclear from her MSNBC interview, that she may have been dealing in this classified information before the election and while still employed by the Clinton campaign. Imagine if this had been a Republican…

Farkas actually seems quite proud of what she did and completely oblivious that she looks to be confessing to a series of felonies and outlining a major Washington-based felony conspiracy that sounds like something out of a movie.

She perfectly characterizes the modern liberal’s belief that they are just so great, and their cause so pure that mere laws do not apply to them.

And they are all scot free…

Clintons Going Out of Business Sale

I’m a little late in getting to this but I can’t stop laughing that the Clinton Global Initiative — part of the enormous scam known as the Clinton Crime Family Foundation… er… Clinton Foundation — is shutting down.

It seems that all those countries, rich folks, celebrities and corporations have realized that paying protection money, graft, bribes and baksheesh to the Clintons and their various hangers-on is no longer of any use.

Or as Glenn Reynolds puts it, “What happens to an influence-peddling operation when there’s no influence to peddle?”

Of course, you might not have heard that this multimillion dollar money laundering operation is closing because big media is too busy stalking Donald Trump like Glenn Close in “Fatal Attraction” to report on such things; to report on actual news (that makes Democrats look bad and/or exposes their craven calumny).

In reality the Clinton Global Initiative was always a shakedown operation that enriched the Clinton Crime Syndicate. It existed for no other purpose. There was no “global initiative” (other than shaking down anyone, anywhere on the planet). Most of the money went to well-heeled and well-connected people to put on conferences to be attended by other well-heeled and well-connected people where they got out the tin cup to get money from taxpayers and corporations across the globe. It also made sure that the Big Pig and HilLIARy traveled in first class and stayed at the best hotels before they delivered their highly-compensated, self-congratulatory bloviations to their audiences of international elites, who then patted themselves on their backs for being so concerned about whatever was the cause du jour.

So what happens to those who worked there, apparently about two dozen low-level grifter tenderfoots? They are being cut loose. Now, you’d think, that with all the lectures that people like Billary have delivered to businesses about not shutting down useless or money-losing operations, to keep them open no matter how much money they lose, that they’d keep CGI open, even on life-support, just to keep those people employed. After all, as Democrats always insist, the rich have scads of wealth from magical, never-ending sources.

But you’d be wrong. Remember, the rules don’t apply to our superiors like Mr. & Mrs. Ex-President. Do as I say, not as I do is their motto.

Interestingly, the employees of the Clinton Global Initiative, based in New York, were non-union. Imagine that, a Democrat operation that hires only non-union employees and then fires them when the operation runs out of gas. Hmmmmm, the word hypocrisy comes to mind.

Kind of reminds me of unions that hire non-union people to walk their picket lines and always pays them below the minimum wage (They’ve even done that at minimum wage promotion rallies!).

However, I suspect that these people will land on their feet in academia, media, Wall Street, politics, NGOs, etc.

King Barry the Hypocrite

Actually hypocrite is an understatement but as with all things derogatory, King Barry is the unexcelled master.

Witness his performance on “The Daily Show” on the appropriately named Comedy Central network.

Firstly, Obama whined to host Trevor Noah that he didn’t understand why there was such a ruckus by Republicans about Hillary Clinton’s perfectly “ordinary” emails. Of course Obama was lying through his teeth on this. He knows that the emails in question were not “ordinary” but rather classified, some of them containing the information with the highest levels of classification.

That was just one of Clinton’s crimes. A second one, which Obama knows about since he participated in it as well, is that Clinton set up an independent email system outside of the secured State Dept. system. One which that only she and her cronies controlled not the State Dept. IT security people. That is in direct violation/purposeful subversion of so many federal government record-keeping/archives/public oversight laws that Clinton & Co. should be facing tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and decades in jail.

Remember Gen. David Petraeus? He got two years probation and $100,000 fine after he pled guilty to what is a single quill on a porcupine compared to Clinton’s activities. Amazingly when Petraeus’s name popped up as a potential Sec. of State nominee, Democrats and the MSM immediately pointed out that Petraeus was unqualified for the job because he was guilty of leaking some secrets.

It was as if fish were complaining that a cactus was too wet…

But back to Obama on “The Daily Show.” The Hypocrite in Chief had the nerve to castigate Donald Trump for Trump’s questioning whether he’d need a daily intelligence briefing. John Hinderaker takes our foolish lame duck president to task for this Mt. Everest of hypocrisy.

If one remembers, Obama is known for eschewing daily intel briefings or playing with his phone on the rare occasions he does take one. See, The One knows all so no one could ever possibly brief him… At least in his own mind.

What to Do With Hillary?

There have been times when a defeated general or political leader was executed. Some would argue that we’ve “progressed” beyond that.

So what will the victorious leader, Donald Trump, do with the defeated leader, Hillary Clinton?

In most American elections, the defeated can regroup for another try or they can do something else. But in the case of Hillary Clinton there’s the case of the series of felonies she committed as Secretary of State.

The FBI investigated and its leader, Jimmy the Weasel Comey (bet he’s sweating bullets now), declared a fat “Meh,” when it came to prosecuting the obvious crimes of the private server and illegal handling of her emails.

Some, in a sense of magnanimity, have offered that Trump should pardon Hillary. (Many of these people were NeverTrumpers so they truly are playing with house money.)

Such a move would be a disaster for Trump. It would be the equivalent of George H.W. Bush’s famous breaking of his “No new taxes” pledge. He never recovered from it and became a one-term president. Nothing would cheese off Trump’s troops than to let Hillary escape.

She must face the music.

If Trump is in a forgiving mood, I’d say that he could recommend that, due to her health conditions, etc. she not face jail time. But such an offer should be highly conditional on her issuing an admission of guilt (no weaselly ‘Other secretaries did the same… and it was approved’ BS) along with a detailed listing of all the crimes and her involvement along with names and details of her various cronies and their crimes (Mills, Sullivan, Samuelson, Abedin, Kendall, et al). All of them would give up their law licenses and leave Washington, do no lobbying and stay away from politics (don’t worry, they’ll quickly be employed by Ivy League schools and large corporations… They won’t starve.)

The admissions should also include King Barry’s negligence as well. (Maybe while they are at it they could get her to confess her incompetence on the night of Benghazi and the subsequent string of self-dealing lies she issued in the following weeks.)

Most importantly, Clinton needs to be made an example of — no one is above the law. It will be a good lesson for everyone and set an example for the children. It will also be a shot across the bow of our amoral-yet-self-righteous arrogant left who think that the law doesn’t pertain to them.

Dismantling of the Clinton Foundation scamhaus should also be a priority. A reformed IRS could revoke its charity status (at a minimum).

There’s always the possibility that King Barry I will pardon her on his way out. Let that be on his head.

The Bias Grows

The bias of the American “news” media is increasing daily. I guess they finally feel completely liberated now, no longer having to pay a fig-leaf of obeisance to that J School fiction for the ages — being an unbiased deliverer of “just the facts, ma’am.”

Why would Variety of all publications step outside of its cozy niche to endorse Hillary Clinton? Admittedly Clinton’s pay for play corruption, amorality and anything-goes smash mouth politics matches Hollywood’s business ethics and the personalities of so many Hollywood power players but it still smacks of kicking a hornet’s nest. I feel they will live to regret their prostitution.

Hollywood has seen a number of recent years where box office receipts disappointed and more than the usual amount of bombs. It relies on often conservative-oriented action movies to pay the bills (and cover the libtard personal projects).

But to say that Hillary Clinton is “In fact, it’s hard to think of any presidential candidate with the depth of knowledge and public-service record she has.” Wow, that is delusional in a magnitude way.

Whatcha bet that Variety publisher Michelle Sobrino-Stearns (Hyphen-American!) and her editors are also Hillary funders?

Yet our own Barack Obama has said much the same… At a recent campaign stop he praised Hillary’s honesty and he has also tapped the uber-qualified meme.

I actually think that Obama is going so over-the-top in his praise so as to be winking at us or, matching his maturity, he’s just mugging like a high schooler weaned on Steve Martin… Or a kid invoking Opposite Day.

If he’s serious, one would have to question his sanity. It’s like calling a Wilt Chamberlain a midget.

Scott Johnson at Power Line has the video here.

And speaking of Power Line, if you haven’t, I highly recommend their Friday weekly contributor — Ammo Grrl. Check the latest out.

One of the commenters on that piece, the always perceptive Mary Louise Pivec, makes an interesting point: “When the first black president was elected, Michael Jackson and Prince were alive, Tiger Woods was at the top of the leader board, Oprah was the queen of the airwaves and Bill Cosby was a beloved national treasure. Eight years in, our musical royalty is dead, Oprah’s off the air and Cosby is one of the most despised public figures in the world. As president, Hillary Clinton will do the same for American women.”

We live in interesting times and they are about to get more interesting.
