Is Anyone Watching Those Who Watch Us? April 5, 2017

The ongoing tempest in a tea cup concerning Russian hacking and Trump collusion is merely “Why? Oh, why did Hillary lose?” etched out in Washington double speak through the media megaphone.  To sum it all up I’m reminded of a quote from the Wicked Witch of the West, “What a world…what a world.”  (Not THAT Wicked Witch of the West the one from the Wizard of Oz.)

Here we are in an America where the government can listen to and record every word or keystroke without a warrant and the person who tells us about it is a traitor.  This is an America obsessed with a manufactured scandal about Russian collusion to elect Trump by people who love to say, “Hillary won the popular vote.”  They never seem to connect the dots.  If the Russians hacked our election and Hillary won the popular vote whose side were they on?

Back in the old days when the Hermit of Chappaqua was celebrated as the smartest woman in the world by the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBS Cartel there was a joke that made the rounds:

Bill and Hillary pulled into a gas station in rural Arkansas and good old Bubba comes out to pump the gas.  As he’s wiping the windshield he looks through the glass and then says, “Hillary is that you?”  It turns out that Hillary and Bubba used to date.  As they pulled away America’s most beloved sexual predator is laughing.  Hillary asks, “Bill what’s so funny?”   The Prince of Interns says, “Here you are married to the President of the United States instead of married to some gas station attendant.”  Where upon Hillary quips, “Bill, if I would’ve married him he’d be the President of the United States.”

A sequel to this apocryphal story could be:

The two heads of New York’s Sixth Crime Family are sitting at the inauguration of Donald Trump.  Hillary says to Bill, “If it hadn’t been for you and all your baggage that would be me up there.”  Bill leans over and whispers, “If you would have listened to me and campaigned instead of waiting to be crowned that might have been you up there.”

Hillary ran an abysmal campaign.  I haven’t seen anything like it since Bob Dole ran on the logic of, “It’s my turn.”

Although some of us saw the coming collapse of the PC America Last crowd in the growing disgust of hard working Americans the central planners never did.  They dismissed us as deplorable Bible clutching flag waving knuckle dragging tax paying bumpkins who lived in fly over country and could safely be ignored by our betters.  They have come to rue the hubris of their assumption.  They still don’t get it, but they rue it, and to them ruing is a new experience.

So their chosen successor to the Great Apologizer fell flat on her pants suit and they don’t know what to do.  It couldn’t have been that people actually rejected their plan to convert America into a third world hellhole one vote among many in a UN controlled New World Order.  No, that couldn’t be it.  There must have been a conspiracy.  So today we wander endlessly day and night through the twenty-four hour wall-to-wall fake news cycle of the Russians did it while trumpeting that Hillary won the popular vote.  Now we learn when President Trump tweeted that he and his transition team were under surveillance by the Obama administration he was pointing to where the hacking may have all originated.  Even a celebrated left winger like Oliver Stone on CNN as reported by the Daily Beast says the DNC hack was an inside job.  Another left leaning news source, Salon reports that our own intelligence agencies can hack sites and make it look like the Russians did it.  If possible a shadowy tale gets darker.

Susan Rice, President Obama’s national-security adviser and confidant, called for American citizens who happened to be involved in the Trump campaign and transition team to be unmasked.  Then we learn that Evelyn Farkas, deputy assistant secretary of defense under Obama, has acknowledged efforts by her colleagues to gather intelligence on Trump team ties to Russia before Donald Trump took office and to conceal the sources of that intelligence from the incoming administration.  This isn’t a smoking gun.  It’s two smoking guns.  Both of these women need to testify under oath.  Where is Trey Gowdy when you need him?

And yet, the beat goes on.  It reminds me that the last person elected saying that he was going to drain the swamp was Richard Nixon in 1972.  Before that it was JFK.  It is obvious the Progressives are plotting the Nixon treatment for Mr. Trump.  Let us pray no one attempts the JFK solution to their problem.

I might have just certified my induction into the Conspiracy Theorists Secret Handshake Society as far as any supporters of the establishment are concerned; however, I believe that the permanent government, now called the Deep State, has its own agenda and they are not above staging a silent coup to reign in any elected officials who get in the way.

Facts can be ignored:

Hillary won the popular vote

The Clintons have deep and long ties to Russian Oligarchs

The Clintons received millions from the Russians during the Uranium Deal

All those suspicious donations that we were assured weren’t bribes dried up and the Clinton foundation is blowing away after Hillary lost the election

Obama administration officials broke the spirit and possibly the letter of the law in their attempts to sabotage the incoming Trump Administration

Not only does the media cartel put everything through their progressive spin cycle, if anything is reported that disrupts their playbook they go so far as to instruct their viewers to ignore the story.  What is so sad about this is that so many we know and love, those who get their personal opinion from the Cartel will do what they are instructed to do.  They will ignore the facts and believe the lie.

Every conversation and keystroke recorded, cameras everywhere, investigations that have predetermined conclusions, and hearings that can only be seen as show trials and political theater that is America today.  So if our government is watching everyone and editing the tapes here’s my question: is anyone watching those who watch us?  If you are don’t tell anyone.  It might be treason.

The Lamest Duck of All January 5, 2017

Long ago and far away, back in an America before Hope and Change changed our hope to dread, we used to have peaceful and dignified transfers of power when one party replaced the other in the Oval Office.  When Bill Clinton and Ross Perot defeated George the First he left Bubba the following note:

Dear Bill,

When I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago. I know you will feel that, too.

I wish you great happiness here. I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described.

There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair. I’m not a very good one to give advice; but just don’t let the critics discourage you or push you off course.

You will be our President when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well.

Your success is now our country’s success. I am rooting for you.

Good luck,
George

That was a class act and a hard one to follow especially for people who allow partisanship and acrimony to eclipse good taste and good manners.

Even the Clinton loving New York Times reported that the transition from the Clinton Inter-lewd to George the Second was anything but dignified.  It was instead sophomoric. According to the Times:

The General Accounting Office, an investigative arm of Congress, said today that “damage, theft, vandalism and pranks did occur in the White House complex” in the presidential transition from Bill Clinton to George W. Bush. The agency put the cost at $13,000 to $14,000, including $4,850 to replace computer keyboards, many with damaged or missing W keys.

Some of the damage, it said, was clearly intentional. Glue was smeared on desk drawers. Messages disparaging President Bush were left on signs and in telephone voice mail. A few of the messages used profane or obscene language.

“A Secret Service report documented the theft of a presidential seal that was 12 inches in diameter from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building,’’ next to the White House, on Jan. 19, 2001, the accounting office said.

Six White House employees told investigators that they had seen graffiti derogatory to Mr. Bush on the wall of a stall in a men’s room. Other White House employees saw a sticker in a filing cabinet that said, “Jail to the thief,” implying that Mr. Bush had stolen the 2000 election.

Following in the tradition of the now discredited and finally discarded Clintons the classless exit is being delivered not by nameless faceless staffers but instead by POTUS himself on the world stage.  Unfortunately the last days of our first anti-colonialist president and his anti-American regime is marked by the only bi-partisan approach of his divisive reign.  RINOs in Congress are helping him in his efforts to torpedo the incoming Trump Revolution from accomplishing the work we have sent them to the swamp-on-the-Potomac to accomplish.

From the president who sent his own campaign team to Israel to defeat Benjamin Netanyahu in his election we get hyperbolic outrage at accusations of Russian hacking and leaks during the 2016 presidential campaign.  He says he knew about the hacks months ago.  Yet he didn’t think they were worth mentioning until his hand-picked successor and his policies were rejected at the ballot box.

Now he fires a salvo of impotent sanction at the Russians.  Putin laughs them off as the ineffective flailing of a lame duck.

Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona told MSNBC, President-elect Donald Trump was the real target of the sanctions, which booted 35 Russian intelligence operatives out of the U.S. and shut down Russian intelligence complexes in New York and Maryland.

“This administration somehow has the notion that this would change the election. They’re really trying to delegitimize the election itself. That’s the main motivation here,” said Franks, a member of the House Committee on Armed Services.

“And I think it’s just unfortunate that this president forgets that most of these e-mails came from WikiLeaks, who claimed they got them from disgruntled DNC staffers.”

In addition to being misdirected they were ineffective and merely showed the impotence and ineffectiveness of the Obama Administration.  According to former UN Ambassador John Bolton Putin showed utter contempt for Obama in his measured response to his President Obama’s better never than late response to the accusations of Russian hacking.

Kellyanne Conway, who will serve as Trump’s counselor to the president, told CNN Thursday, “I will tell you that even those who are sympathetic to President Obama on most issues are saying that part of the reason he did this today was to quote ‘box in’ President-elect Trump.”

Personally I would like to echo an astute observation by Fred Fleitz, a former CIA analyst “The perception that an outgoing U.S. president is trying to box in and sabotage the foreign policy of his successor hurts the global reputation of America’s democratic system.”

We also have BHO’s stunning reversal of American policy allowing the condemnation of Israel to go forward.  After protecting Israel with our veto power since 1949 in the waning days of his soon to be repudiated and reversed Progressive regime BHO ordered his team at the UN to abstain from a key vote.  Thus the anti-Jewish UN was finally able to condemn Israel and add fuel to the flames of hatred.  Not only did the Obama administration refuse to block the move they are accused by Israel of helping to write the resolution and for pushing others to vote for it.

The blizzard of economically strangling regulations continued to pour out of the Obama White House even as it slowly sinks beneath the political horizon.  President Obama poured on thousands more new regulations in 2016 at a rate of 18 for every new law passed, according to an analysis of his team’s expansion of federal authority.  While Congress passed just 211 laws, Obama’s team issued an accompanying 3,852 new federal regulations, some costing billions of dollars.

The 2016 total was the highest annual number of regulations under Obama.  The proof that it was an overwhelming year for rules and regulations is in the Federal Register, which ended the year Friday by printing a record-setting 97,110 pages, according to the analysis from the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

We only have one president at a time.  We all get that.  And until January 20th 2017 that is still BHO.  Unless he does an abrupt U-turn, ends his attempts to undermine his successor, thwart the will of the people, and show a little class to his everlasting shame he may well be remembered as the lamest duck of all.

Who Hacked the Hackers? December 15, 2016

The sore loser cry babies who refuse to accept the results of American voters will do anything to make the vote of the people for Donald Trump appear illegitimate.  Their lame attempts at frivolous recounts have only exposed their own corruption and added votes to the Donald’s bottom line.  So it is time for a new approach.  Blame it on the Russians.

I remember back in the 1980s when we finally had a president with a plan to end the Cold War.  These same bleeding heart limonene liberals fell all over themselves opposing the Gipper.  They marched, they colluded with the enemy and they endlessly attacked him and his plan through their operatives masquerading as journalists in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media.

Now when the evidence is flimsy at best and manufactured at worst they are indignantly riding their high horses to another catastrophic defeat.  Even the help of all the RINOs in Congress won’t help these repudiated Clintonistas put Humpty Dumpty Hillary back together again.

Their megaphones in the media are filling the airwaves with the lie that all our intelligence services agree the Russians hacked our election and caused the defeat of the anointed and the victory of the barbarians.

Let’s see how that squares with reality.

Top US Spy Agency Doesn’t Back CIA View on Russia Hacking

According to Reuters the leaders of the U.S. intelligence community do not embrace a CIA assessment that Russian cyber-attacks were aimed at helping Republican President-elect Donald Trump win the 2016 election.  While the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) does not dispute the CIA’s analysis of Russian hacking operations, it does not endorse their assessment because there is a lack of conclusive evidence that Moscow intended to boost Trump over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

The position of the ODNI, which oversees the seventeen agency-strong U.S. intelligence communities, gives Trump an informed position to dispute the CIA assessment.

 

 

Former Army Intel Officer Rejects Hack Theory: CIA’s Brennan Playing ‘Info Warfare’

A retired Army intelligence officer dismissed the theory that the Russians hacked the election in favor of Donald Trump, instead putting forth his own theory — CIA Director John Brennan is playing political games.

Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer stated that in his opinion Brennan is trying to undermine the president-elect out of deference to his boss, President Barack Obama.

Shaffer said, “This is purely political, and I believe that John Brennan is a political animal. Everything they are telling me is Brennan is doing this out of loyalty to President Obama. It’s called information operations, information warfare, and that’s what I believe is going on.”

Ultimately what’s more dangerous the DNC hack or the criminality it exposed?

These leaked emails, whether by Russia, China, or some teenager in his mother’s basement expose possible criminal activity by Secretary Clinton and New York’s Sixth Crime Family using her office as the launching pad for a pay-to-play scam to solicit tens of millions of dollars from foreign heads of state.

There was also evidence that Clinton’s campaign staff colluded with their not-s-covert supporters over at the Clinton News Network (CNN) before her debate with the Donald in order to help her in the debate and sway the results of the election.

In addition, Clinton’s campaign staff and the DNC colluded to undermine and destroy the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders.

Clinton’s staff and members of the DNC all knew that Sanders was soliciting millions of dollars for his presidential campaign.  All the while they also knew that while he was doing so, they were conspiring to do everything in their power to undermine his campaign and guarantee his failure.  According to some lawyers, that could be seen as honest services fraud.

Then there is the history of American politicians working with the Russians to influence our elections.  Hint: it wasn’t conservatives and it wasn’t Putin.

Democrats Secretly Worked With Russia to Oppose My Dad

In an article by Michael Reagan in Newsmax:

Former intelligence officer Herbert Romerstein dug through the Soviet archives after the fall of the USSR and uncovered secret documents written by KGB agent Victor Chebrikov. The documents revealed that Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy had sent a friend, former Senator John Tunney of California, to contact the KGB. Tunney’s mission: undermine then-President Jimmy Carter.

On March 5, 1980, as Kennedy was challenging Carter in the primaries, Tunney met with the KGB and urged the Soviets to sabotage Carter’s foreign policy efforts. It’s amazing: Two high-ranking Democrats — a sitting U.S. senator and a former senator — sought Soviet help in undermining American foreign policy and manipulating an American election.

One 1980 document stated that Kennedy offered to condemn President Carter’s policy toward the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in exchange for KGB help. News accounts of that period prove that Kennedy did, in fact, openly criticize Carter’s Afghanistan policy.

Even more amazing: President Carter himself was also willing to jump into bed with the Soviets. In the closing days of the 1980 presidential campaign, while trailing Ronald Reagan in the polls, Jimmy Carter sent a political ally, industrialist Armand Hammer, to a secret meeting with Soviet ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin at the embassy in Washington. Hammer asked the Soviets to help Carter win votes in key states by allowing Jewish “refuseniks” to emigrate to Israel. The Soviets rejected Hammer’s request.

In January 1984, former President Carter approached Ambassador Dobrynin in person. Carter wanted to derail President Reagan’s defense buildup, and asked for help from the Evil Empire in unseating President Reagan. It’s not clear if the Soviets gave Carter what he wanted.

Then there’s Speaker of the House Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill. He privately told Ambassador Dobrynin that it was in everyone’s best interests if the Soviets would help the Democrats keep “that demagogue Reagan” from being re-elected. O’Neill warned Dobrynin that the “primitive instincts” of this “dangerous man” would plunge the world into war.

It must have amazed Anatoly Dobrynin that these prominent liberals — Ted Kennedy, Armand Hammer, Jimmy Carter, and Tip O’Neill — all viewed President Reagan as more dangerous than any Communist dictator. Historian Paul Kengor observed that the Soviet archives showed “the lengths to which some on the political left . . .were willing to go to stop Ronald Reagan.”

Why did the KGB documents come to light? They surfaced because Ronald Reagan toppled the Evil Empire, ended the Cold War, and thwarted the joint Democrat-Soviet effort to manipulate the election.

And if all else fails we could always go to the horse’s mouth.  According to Fortune magazine, “Julian Assange claims Russia isn’t behind WikiLeaks’ hacked Clinton emails.”

The latest revelations in this fast unraveling story of Russian leaks and possible interference in the election of Donald Trump involves an explosive revelation which will no doubt be hidden from the low-information voters who receive all their news from the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC CABAL.

An ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails – they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for ‘disgusted’ Democratic whistleblowers.  Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and a close associate of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, told Dailymail.com that he flew to Washington, D.C. for a clandestine hand-off with one of the email sources in September.

Murray insisted that the DNC and Podesta emails published by Wikileaks did not come from the Russians, and were given to the whistleblowing group by Americans who had authorized access to the information.

Murray said, “Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians.  The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.”

He said “The leakers were motivated by disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.”

Here’s another bombshell exploding on the flank of the politically motivated fake news campaign by the Progressive establishment to de-legitimize the election of Donald Trump.  According to Frank Gaffney in Newsmax:

In telephone conversations with Donald Trump, FBI Director James Comey assured the president-elect there was no credible evidence that Russia influenced the outcome of the recent U.S. presidential election by hacking the Democratic National Committee and the emails of John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

What’s more, Comey told Trump that James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, agreed with this FBI assessment.

The only member of the U.S. intelligence community who was ready to assert that the Russians sanctioned the hacking was John Brennan, the director of the CIA, according to sources who were briefed on Comey’s conversations with Trump.

“And Brennan takes his marching orders from President Obama,” the sources quoted Comey as saying.

In Comey’s view, the leaks to The New York Times and The Washington Post alleging that the Russians tried—and perhaps even succeeded—in tilting the election to Trump were a Democratic Party effort to delegitimize Trump’s victory.

Looking at the leaks about this whole affair former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra told Newsmax TV on Wednesday, “It is not the agency that is doing this. It is rogue employees within the CIA who are leaking this information.”

Here’s the real hack that attempted to subvert our election:

The recent re-count in Michigan revealed there were too many votes in 37% of Detroit’s precincts

Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books.

This is the same old same old vote rigging by the Democrat machines that have presided over the destruction of our great cities.  What these political hacks have done to Detroit is what they were planning for the country as a whole.  However, the working people of America finally got up off the couch, the silent majority final spoke with one voice, and instead of the managed decline of the Obama-Clinton CABAL we are on the road to Make America Great Again!
