The 2-Year, $25 Million Witch Hunt

The White House: Since Election Night 2016, Democrats and their media allies have been fixated on a simple illusion to justify their otherwise indefensible behavior toward an American Commander in Chief. Their illusion was that President Donald J. Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, and then obstructed justice to prevent anyone from finding out.

On Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had delivered his final report to Attorney General Bill Barr. Over the weekend, Attorney General Barr presented a summary of that report to Congress.

After an exhaustive investigation by the Special Counsel, filled with 2,800 subpoenas, more than 500 witnesses, millions of pages of documents, and $25 million wasted in taxpayer dollars, here is what it found: nothing.

No collusion. No obstruction. And a complete exoneration of President Trump and the entire Trump campaign—exactly what the President and the White House have told the American people from the beginning of the Democrats’ fishing expedition.

With that news, the entire Democratic narrative of the past two years collapsed in an instant. Two major failures explain how the witch hunt spiraled out of Democrats’ control:

Failure 1 was blatantly irresponsible reporting. In an effort to validate their own political instincts, the mainstream media abandoned all journalistic standards and repeatedly failed the American people by accepting wild speculation as fact. They smeared calls for due process and common-sense skepticism as political “gaslighting,” rather than defending these basic principles of fairness and impartiality.

Real issues that affect Americans from coast to coast were put on the backburner as airways were flooded with false and endless “reporting” of retreaded conspiracy theories. The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, and MSNBC wrote a combined 8,507 articles citing Robert Mueller’s investigation since May 2017—an average of nearly 13 articles every single day.

The New York Times published 644 more stories mentioning the Mueller investigation than they did mentioning NAFTA renegotiations. The Washington Post wrote 192 more stories mentioning Mueller than they did America’s defeat of the Islamic State. And CNN produced a stunning 908 more stories about the investigation than they did about implementation of the biggest tax reform plan in American history.

Keep in mind, the vast majority of that was before Mueller had issued any report.

Failure 2 was Democrat recklessness. The left desperately tried to promote collusion conspiracies to rationalize their 2016 loss and sink Donald Trump’s presidency.

Here’s just a small sample of their comments—astonishing and inexcusable in light of Mueller’s report:
  • House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) stated that there was “plenty evidence of collusion”—and of a scandal “of a size and scope probably beyond Watergate.”
  • House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said he believed there “was obviously a lot of collusion.”
  • Maxine Waters (D-CA) said that she was praying for the investigation to “connect the dots so that he can prove the collusion.”
  • DNC Chairman Tom Perez repeatedly stated that there was a “mountain of evidence of collusion between the campaign and the Russians.”
  • Numerous House and Senate Democrats called for President Trump’s impeachment long before the conclusion of the Special Counsel investigation.
“I love this country as much as I can love anything: my family, my country, my God. But what they did, it was a false narrative,” President Trump said today. “We can never let this happen to another President again.”

There’s no spinning it: Congressional Democrats, much of the mainstream media, and former Obama Administration officials peddled one of the greatest lies in American political history in a failed attempt to reverse the election of a President they simply don’t like.

The real threat to our democracy was hiding in plain sight all along.

The Real Conspiracy, Schiff Unrepentant, The Delusional Left

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: The Real Conspiracy
The Mueller report is in. There was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. But there was a real conspiracy, and there has been a cover up of an attempted coup by the deep state.

Multiple Obama officials, with the help of Hillary Clinton's campaign, attempted to delegitimize and potentially reverse the election of Donald Trump. We have yet to get to the bottom of who is responsible for this "Watergate on steroids" and bring them to justice.

I don't know what Attorney General Barr thinks, but I suspect he has no qualms when it comes to testifying before Congress about the decisions he has made. If Reps. Nadler and Schiff think they are going to get the best of Bill Barr and somehow reverse the conclusions of the Mueller investigation, they are in for a second round of disappointment.

Meanwhile, the left had better brace itself. We're still waiting for Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz to release the findings of a second report on the FBI's abuse of FISA warrants and its spying on the Trump campaign.

The Mueller report is a welcome victory for President Trump. But this is far from over. Democrats are still in denial and doubling down on the issue of obstruction of justice.

But we cannot rest until Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Lynch, McCabe, Ohr, Simpson, Strzok and others are held accountable for their role in this sad episode. Thankfully, Senator Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today vowed to do just that.

At a press conference today, Sen. Graham told reporters:

"What makes no sense to me is that all of the abuse by the Department of Justice and the FBI, the unprofessional conduct, the shady behavior — nobody seems to think that's much important. Well, that's gonna change."

Referring to the abuse of the FISA warrant process, Graham said, "Was it a ruse to get into the Trump campaign? I don't know but I'm going to try to find out."

Schiff Unrepentant
One revelation from the release of the Mueller report is that the biggest liar in Washington may well be House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). Over the last two years, he has repeatedly insisted that he had in his possession voluminous evidence of collusion between President Trump and Russia. And he is refusing to change his tune.

Just yesterday, even as news was breaking that Mueller would issue no more indictments, Schiff told ABC's George Stephanopoulos, "There is significant evidence of collusion" with Russia.

How does he know that? How can he claim to know what Mueller and the Senate Intelligence Committee could not find? If Schiff had such evidence, all he had to do was give it to Robert Mueller.

One can only conclude that Schiff has no information and that he knowingly lied to his constituents and the American people at a level that is extraordinary even by Washington's standards.

Speaking on Fox & Friends this morning, Kellyanne Conway called on Adam Schiff to resign, saying:

"He has no right as somebody who has been peddling a lie day after day after day unchallenged. Unchallenged and not under oath. Somebody should have put him under oath and say, 'You have evidence, where is it?'

"He ought to resign today. He's been on every TV show 50 times a day for practically the last two years, promising Americans that this president would either be impeached or indicted."


The Delusional Left
Watch this montage of left-wing pundits and politicians predicting Trump's demise.

"This is treason," they said.

"The noose is tightening," they said.

"Trump's going to jail," they said.

All of it was wishful thinking at best and lies at worst. We know Putin meddled in our election to sow division and chaos. He succeeded beyond his wildest dreams because the left and its media allies were willing accomplices and useful idiots for America's enemies.

According to our friends at the Media Research Center, the big three networks -- ABC, CBS and NBC -- devoted nearly 2,300 minutes of coverage to this political hate hoax, "an average of roughly three minutes a night, every night, for an astonishing 791 days."

As The Daily Caller noted, the Washington Post and the New York Times won prestigious journalism awards for their coverage "of something that, according to Mueller's report, did not exist."

I am pleased to report that one serious journalist is apologizing. Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson writes:

"We in the media allowed unproven charges and false accusations to dominate the news landscape for more than two years, in a way that was wildly unbalanced and disproportionate to the evidence.

"We did a poor job of tracking down leaks of false information. . . As such, we reported a tremendous amount of false information, always to Trump's detriment. . . So, a round of apologies seem in order."


Just to be clear, Attkisson was not part of the left-wing media cabal trying to sabotage the Trump presidency. There is considerable sarcasm in her remarks. She also goes on to demand accountability from those in government and in the media who are responsible for this two-year nightmare.

But I won't hold my breath waiting for more mea culpas from CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, etc., etc.

Blaming The Founders
I'm not sure how, but in recent weeks multiple Democrats seemed to be preparing people for the possibility that the Mueller report <might be a dud. Nancy Pelosi infuriated many progressives when she backed away from impeachment.

But I also noticed that around the same time, some on the left (here and here) started blaming the Electoral College for Hillary Clinton's defeat. In other words, it wasn't Putin's fault. It was James Madison's fault and George Washington's fault. Now that's desperation!

Judge Tosses Deerfield, IL’s Assault Weapon Ban

by Tom Knighton: The community of Deerfield, Illinois figured it was justified in trying to issue a total ban on so-called “assault rifles.” After all, to its anti-gun sensibilities, those guns are all “icky.”

However, it seems a judge spiked the ban like it was a volleyball.A Lake County Circuit Court judge has ruled that Deerfield, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, cannot enact a blanket ban on “assault weapons,” leaving progressive gun activists at a loss as to how to ban the AR-15.

According to WGN News, the Deerfield ordinance included a blanket ban on “assault weapons” and “high capacity magazines,” two terms that the gun rights groups who challenged the legislation said were inappropriately vague, as well as a ban on “semiautomatic rifles, semiautomatic shotguns and semiautomatic pistols with detachable magazines.” The ordinance fined anyone within the city limits of Deerfield $1,000 per day until they relocated their guns to a gun club or other holding facility outside the city.

The same judge issued an order temporarily halting enforcement of the ordinance almost immediately after it was enacted by the Deerfield city council, and after two Illinois-based gun rights groups filed suit.

The judge, Luis Berrones, issued a final, permanent injunction Friday preventing Deerfield from enforcing the ordinance, finding that the Deerfield gun owners had “a clearly ascertainable right to not be subjected to a preempted and unenforceable ordinance,” according to the Chicago Tribune.
Boom.

The truth was, Deerfield’s ban was ridiculous at every level. All it successfully did was signal to gun-owning residents that they weren’t welcome in town.

There’s no doubt in my mind that it knew exactly the type of weapon it wanted to ban. There’s no doubt in my mind that we all know what Deerfield was talking about in its ban. While the law may have been vague, its intentions weren’t. It wanted to ban pretty much anything that would allow someone to effectively defend themselves in a violent encounter.

I fully suspect it’ll sit down with Judge Berrones’s ruling, look at the objections, and try again.

My advice to gun owners living in Deerfield is to move. The county’s not going to stop coming after your guns. Nothing is going to stop it from coming after your guns again, not even the judge’s ruling.

Meanwhile, if Deerfield passes a different law–one it can make stick–don’t be surprised to see the county become a freaking battleground as the worst of Chicago spills over into an area where the citizens have no means to resist. If that doesn’t happen, it’ll only be because Chicago’s criminal class is too lazy to travel.

At some point, we’re going to have to take aim at communities like this. Right now, we’re engaged in larger battles, but sooner or later, we’ll have to deal with the Deerfields in this country.

You don’t get to take away people’s rights and pretend you’re doing it for their good. That’s not how rights work, and it’s time communities are reminded of that through lawsuits, donations to opposition campaigns, and similar efforts.

Stupid should hurt, after all.

Attack of the Desperate Democrats

Michael Reagan
by Michael Reagan: Never mind that Russian collusion thing, say the Democrats.

They have some new ideas to get rid of that bad man in the White House who they’ll always believe colluded with the Russians to steal the presidency from Hillary Clinton.

Now, as special counsel Robert Mueller is set to release a gigantic report that will probably show Russian collusion was the Democrat hoax Trump always said it was, the party of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is losing its collective mind.

Democrats are so desperate to prevent a second Trump term that their mob of 2020 presidential wannabes are throwing out every dumb, out-of-the-box or unconstitutional idea they can think of to stop him:

– Eliminate the Electoral College.

– Lower the voting age to 6 – sorry, 16.

– Pack the Supreme Court.

The other day Sen. Elizabeth Warren came up with getting rid of the Electoral College and electing presidents directly by popular vote.

It’s a horrible idea that only comes up when Republicans win the White House despite the wishes of huge Democrat majorities in large states like California, New York and Illinois.

It came up in 1980 with my dad and in 2000 with Bush II.

Here it is again with Trump, who lost the national popular vote by several million in 2016 only because Hillary won big in New York and California.

People like Sen. Warren think if we closed up the Electoral College – which was set up by the Founding Fathers as a compromise between big states and small states – it will put their splintered, increasingly leftist and apparently suicidal party back in the White House in 2020.

Other Democrat presidential candidates who’ve never read the Constitution or believe we can simply get rid of the 12th Amendment over a weekend think it’s a great idea.

“Let’s get rid of the Electoral College” is a great applause line when a limousine socialist college professor like Warren throws it out to one of her Constitutionally challenged audiences on the campaign trail.

But since ending the Electoral College would take a Constitutional amendment ratified by three-fourths of the states, it will never happen – and she and the other desperate Democrats know it.

But what about that other radical idea to put Democrats back into power in D.C. – lowering the voting age to 16?

Democrats like it because they know they’d easily get the votes of most 16-year-olds, thanks to the diet of liberal political crap they’re fed everyday by their teachers.

All Democrats have to do is keep promising the kids a fake future that includes free college, stricter gun control laws and a socialist paradise of free health care and green jobs that don’t involve work.

They can also keep telling the kids scary stories about how the world is going to end in 12 years if the party of AOC doesn’t get control and begin outlawing fossil fuels, cows and capitalism.

As for the idea of expanding the size of the Supreme Court from nine to 15, it’s an old Democrat Party trick that FDR tried in the 1930s.

It was brought out of mothballs this week by Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., who’s probably right to think he’s just as qualified to be president as Kamala, Corey and at least half of the other wannabes.

FDR tried to add as many as six friendly judges at the beginning of his second term because the Supreme Court’s conservative majority kept slapping down his New Deal laws for being what they were – unconstitutional over-reaches of executive power.

Packing the Supreme Court with new judges who agree with you is not unconstitutional.

But the Judicial Procedures Reform Bill of 1937 was such a transparent abuse of executive power that many Democrats in Congress joined with the Republican minority to oppose FDR’s planned power play.

Unfortunately for country, FDR ultimately got his way when two justices changed their minds and voted to uphold the constitutionality of the Social Security Act and other New Deal legislation.

But his scheme to pack the high court backfired on him politically, which is something today’s desperate Democrats might want to remember.

Trump Taps Stephen Moore for Federal Reserve Board

Stephen Moore, Economist
by Fred Lucas: President Donald Trump will name economist Stephen Moore, a visiting fellow at The Heritage Foundation and former Wall Street Journal economics writer, to the Federal Reserve Board to oversee the nation’s monetary policy.

“I will be nominating Mr. Moore for the Fed,” Trump told reporters Friday at the Palm Beach International Airport. “You know who I’m talking about. So he’s going to be great. He’s going to be great on the Fed.”

Moore, 59, later responded on Twitter:
During an interview Friday on Fox News Channel, Moore said, “I’m going to be the growth guy at the Fed.”

Fox’s Neil Cavuto asked him about past criticism of Federal Reserve policies.

“I was critical of the Fed’s last rate increase in December, and I think almost everyone agrees that was a big, big mistake. The dollar fell by several thousand points after that decision,” Moore said, adding:I believe that the best Fed policy is keeping the price system stable. That’s why you have a currency. I always go back to first principles. Why do you have a currency? So that it retains value. It’s a medium of exchange, and the best way to achieve that is to keep prices stable. … I think the potential for the American economy is 3-4 percent growth for as far as the eye can see.“I’m more worried about a deflation right now than an inflation,” Moore said.

In late 2018, Moore and economist Arthur Laffer released their book, Trumponomics: Inside the America First Plan to Revive Our Economy.

Moore, Laffer, and Larry Kudlow, who Trump appointed as director of the National Economic Council, advised the Trump presidential campaign on economic policy.

Moore also helped draft the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a package of reforms that reduced individual and corporate tax rates while closing loopholes with the aim of spurring the economy.

Moore is a distinguished visiting fellow for the Project for Economic Growth at The Heritage Foundation. He had returned to the think tank as chief economist in 2014, after having served as the Grover M. Hermann fellow in budgetary affairs from 1984 to 1987.

“Congratulations to my colleague Steve Moore for his nomination to serve on the Federal Reserve Board,” Heritage President Kay Coles James said in a written statement. “President Trump should be applauded for tapping Steve to serve in this important role. Steve will steer America’s monetary policy to make a strong economy even stronger.”

James added: Steve’s contributions to The Heritage Foundation in his two stints here are too many to count, and the economic policy he played such a large part in shaping during this administration has led to a historic economic boom that has benefitted every American. We encourage the Senate to move swiftly to confirm Steve, who will serve the American people well and faithfully.Between his tenures at Heritage, Moore became known as a member of The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board, writing about the economy and public policy.

In 1999, Moore co-founded the Club for Growth, which promotes lower taxes, deregulation, and the election of conservative candidates for public office. He next founded the Free Enterprise Fund before joining The Wall Street Journal.

“Steve is one of America’s leading experts on the economy, and I’ve been proud to co-author several op-eds with him, including one on Federal Reserve policy,” Alfredo Ortiz, president of the Job Creators Network, a business group, said in a prepared statement, noting Moore has been a member of the organization’s board.

“We applaud President Trump for making an excellent nomination, one that will bring a much needed and valued perspective to the Federal Reserve Board,” Ortiz said.

Fake News – Begets Fake Polls

VERY Fake News’ #1 Victim
by Seton Motley, Contributing Author: British politician Benjamin Disraeli famously asserted:

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

I think Disraeli seriously short sold the number of lies. In his defense – he shuffled off this mortal coil decades before being afflicted with today’s hardcore Left media.

Because today’s media is constantly finding new ways to lie.

To wit: The Poll.

To begin: The only polls that have ever mattered to me – are the ones where we actually vote for our elected officials.

All of the “opinion polls” the media conducts in the intervening 104 weeks (minus primaries, of course) – are conducted to make it look like Americans agree with the obnoxiously Leftist opinion of the media.

There are myriad ways the media can rig their poll results.

They can warp the ideological sample of respondents – ridiculously over-representing Democrats and Leftists. Which they do – ALL the time.

The presidential polling history is simply banal:

“Starting in 1992, EVERY Pew poll appears to lean to one direction – always towards the Democrat, and by an average of more than 5 percentage points.”

This of course turned out well:

ABC Poll Oversamples Dems by +9, Claims Hillary Leading

And of course it ain’t just presidential.

John Zogby: ‘Oversampling of Democrats’ Problem With Polls

And of course: The media’s poll results are almost wholly dependent upon how the media writes its poll questions. Which can be absurdly warped – so as to lead respondents in any absurd direction the media chooses.

And of course – and perhaps most important: The media is mostly polling its audience. Which means the audience mostly only knows – what the media tells them.

The media universally and incessantly denigrates President Donald Trump. Then asks its audience “What do you think of President Donald Trump.” Guess how that’ll turn out.

Poll respondents can only respond to the media’s polls based upon the “news” the media has provided them – or not provided them.

Fake News – begets Fake Polls.

Which leads to ridiculous poll results like this:

Majority of Young Americans Prefer Socialism or Communism to Capitalism

Of course this is at least as much an indictment of government schools. But the schools and the media share at least one culpability. They both glossily praise Socialism-Communism – while skipping over the hundreds of millions of lives ended and destroyed by it.

When young Americans are asked why they like Socialism-Communism – they demonstrate their woeful government school/media-imposed ignorance.

LOL VIDEO: College Students Super Excited About Socialism. But Then They’re Asked To Define It.

And when Socialism-Communism’s awfulness is right in our faces – the media lie their faces off.

Socialist Venezuela Isn’t ‘Socialist’ in More Than 87% of Network Stories

Which brings us to this ridiculous poll.

80 Percent of Americans Support Bringing Back Net Neutrality

The media has ensured a disheartening percentage of Americans don’t even know what Socialism-Communism is. What makes anyone actually think they know what Net Neutrality actually is?

But we know the media are lying – because they inadvertently admit it in their very first half sentence:

“Over 80 percent of Americans agree with the ‘basic tenets of net neutrality….”

As we’ve discussed ad nauseam – NO ONE in DC disagrees with the “basic tenets of Net Neutrality.” Which were established – to bipartisan acclaim – in 2005.

But this stupid article about the stupid poll – gives away the lie in the very first paragraph:

“Over 80 percent of Americans agree with the ‘basic tenets of net neutrality.’…The survey comes after the ‘Save the Internet Act’ was introduced by Democrats in Congress in early March, which would repeal the Federal Communications Commission’s Restoring Internet Freedom Act (a misnomer if ever there was one), thus resurrecting regulations from the 2015 Open Internet Order. Under this now-defunct order, internet service providers were categorized under Title II of the Communications Act, which meant they were classified as a ‘telecommunication service’ and regulated like utilities.”

Get that dishonest juxtaposition? “The basic tenets of Net Neutrality” – with the Democrats (really, truly misnamed) “Save the Internet Act?” Which will impose 1934 landline telephone law – upon the 21st Century Internet.

Which has nothing to do with Net Neutrality. And everything to do with government power grabbing control of the Internet.

I will bet all the money in my pockets – against all the money in your pockets – several fundamental facts about the “Save the Internet Act” were not afforded the poll respondents.

I am this supremely confident – because the media has spent the entirety of the Net Neutrality debate not providing these fundamental facts to their audiences.

Let’s look at but a few.

Fact: Applying 1934 landline telephone network law to the 21st Century World Wide Web – is technologically VERY stupid.

You’ve seen phone lines along roads your entire life. That network is almost entirely binary. Your phone can at best handle two or three calls at once.

The Web – is a WEB. Heading in a trillion different directions – all at once. You can have…I don’t know, a thousand different Net pages open simultaneously. While simultaneously streaming multiple videos and audio streams.

To try to constrict all of this unbelievable dynamism – into 1934 binary landline law – is simply insane. It will quite simply crush the Internet – all the way down to the very tiny size of its very early days.

Fact: Imposing Title II – allows the government to tax your Internet connections. At the ridiculously exorbitant levels they tax your phones:

“…(O)nce ‘internet access services’ are reclassified as ‘interstate telecommunications services’ under the exclusive authority of FCC, it will be subjected to the 16.1% fee that’s currently applicable to such services.

“So (Title II) ’net neutrality’ could result into the largest single tax increase on internet to date.”

And the most important fact directly addressing this nonsense poll:

You can have the “basic tenets of Net Neutrality” – without absurdly reclassifying the Internet to ridiculously punitive Title II.

In fact, House Republicans are currently offering three different bills – that do exactly that. That’s three different Republican bills – all looking to protect Net Neutrality in law.

But that ain’t nearly enough government for the lying Leftists in the polling media:

“The ‘Save the Internet Act’ would bring back the FCC’s Obama-era rules that ensured net neutrality. While the bill was introduced by Democrats, the Comparitech poll shows across-the-board support from Americans on both sides of the aisle on this particular issue, with almost 87 percent of Democrats, almost 80 percent of independents and 77 percent of Republicans supporting the ‘basic tenets of net neutrality.’”

Because for the lying Leftists in the polling media – this actually has nothing to do with Net Neutrality.

And everything to do with government power grabbing control of the Internet.

The Republicans’ bills protect the former.

The Democrats’ bill ensures the latter.

Judicial Watch Statement on Mueller Report

by Judicial Watch: Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the Muller special counsel report summary made public by Attorney General Barr today:The long, national nightmare is over and President Trump has been vindicated. The corruptly-created and constitutionally abusive Mueller investigation failed to find any evidence to support the big lie that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.

We’re pleased that AG Barr rejected Mueller’s attempt to smear President Trump with obstruction of justice innuendo by concluding that no such charges could be credibly sustained. Frankly, Mueller never had a valid basis upon which to investigate President Trump for obstruction of justice.

Let’s be clear, neither Mueller, the Obama FBI, DOJ, CIA, State Department, nor the Deep State ever had a good-faith basis to pursue President Trump on Russia collusion. Russia collusion wasn’t just a hoax, it is a criminal abuse, which is why Judicial Watch has fought and will continue to fight for Russiagate documents in federal court.

The targeting of President Trump served to protect Hillary Clinton and her enablers/co-conspirators in Obama administration from prosecution. Attorney General Barr can begin restoring the credibility of the Justice Department by finally initiating a thorough investigation of the Clinton emails and related pay-to-play scandals and the abuses behind the targeting of President Trump.
Judicial Watch has long called for the shutdown of the Mueller special counsel operation and has pursued dozens of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits into the illicit targeting and other abuses of President Trump. Judicial Watch FOIA litigation exposed, for example:
  • The dossier-based Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications targeting President Trump
    FBI payments to Christopher Steele
  • FBI firing of Steele
  • Extensive DOJ (Ohr) collusion w/Steele, Simpson, Fusion GPS
  • No court hearings by defrauded FISA courts before warrants were issued
  • Anti-Trump bias by Mueller deputy Andrew Weissmann

The Catastrophic Ramifications of Abolishing the Electoral College

Charlie Daniels
by Charlie Daniels: There was a time in my younger life when I was more inclined to take things at face value, or superficial appearances, without actually delving into the reasons for, or the aftermath of, the doing away with – or at other times – the instituting of policies and programs.

It seems that the Millennial generation is afflicted with the same shortsightedness that I suffered from when it comes to things like socialism and nanny state politics. They been, at least in many cases, indoctrinated by flower child college professors and ideologues who seem to believe that the money passed out by government programs either grows on trees or can be printed, ad infinitum, an unending supply of currency guaranteeing cradle to grave security for the industrious and non-industrious alike.

There is a well-founded saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

If that is the case, socialism is definitely the epitome of insanity, in that it has been tried over and over and always arrives at the same result – utter failure.

It’s a system that watches as its government grows so bloated with bureaucracies to watch the other bureaucracies, while administering everything from food distribution to doctor visits, with the legislative element passing ridiculous laws and promising more and more benefits until there are no more lines of credit, the tax base has maxed out, the party is over and the government is forced to take further action to control riots and demonstrations.

Socialism in its purest form always morphs into totalitarianism.

Look at Russia, Cuba, Eastern Europe, Venezuela, the numerous African nations who have dipped their toe in the water to end up experiencing super inflation to the tune of issuing a three hundred-billion-dollar bill.

But the current generation has never been taught about the disaster of socialism, and they view it as a wonderful level playing field where all needs will be met by a benevolent motherly government.

And when the case for abolishing the Electoral College is presented to them by the politicians and ideologues, it will be done in the name of fairness, a system where every vote would be counted and the true majority would – at last – have their voices heard.

After all, shouldn’t he, or she, who gets the most votes win? Should not the masses prevail, true equity be accomplished?

Not unless you have a desire to be ruled by the people on both coasts, Chicago, Houston, and the other urban megacities where most of the population of the nation reside, South Dakota and Wyoming be damned.

Which means that the only representation the flyover states would have would be the Senate, and you can bet the loyal opposition would make short work of their influence.

Let’s just be honest here.

The open borders policy, lowering the voting age to 16, the intention to pack the Supreme Court and the abolition of the Electoral College is a brazen attempt by the Democratic Party to control every elected official, every federal judge, every bureaucrat, every law passed, everything from tax rates to hospital stays.

Don’t be deceived. It’s not compassion or empathy that prompts these Democrats. It’s the unholy quest for power, the same passion that cost Satan his place in heaven and will eventually cast him into eternal hell.

People who crave power have tunnel vision. All they can see is being able to control the lives of others. It is the most potent drug of all, and it eventually drags its addicts down to the bottom of the cesspool they live in.

Put simply, doing away with the Electoral College would disenfranchise around 80 percent of the geographical area of the nation and place unlimited political power tantamount to that of a dictator in the hands of politicians who would totally ruin the industry and economy, cut the military to dangerous levels, cower and kowtow to foreign governments, take away any citizen’s right to own firearms and reduce the Constitution to a list of toothless suggestions.

Do you think it can’t happen in America?

Well, folks wake up! It’s only one generation away.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, the police and the peace of Jerusalem

God Bless America

UN Commission Ends in Acrimony, Charges of Harassment and Bullying

by Stefano Gennarini: The most controversial UN negotiation of the year ended Friday afternoon in a bitter row between Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the Irish chair of the Commission on the Status of Women over the procedure used to adopt an agreement on social protections for women.

“We urge and demand to receive a proper explanation from the chair,” said the delegate of Bahrain, Mohamed Al-Faris, adding that “you just banged your gavel and adopted the document.”

Ambassador Koki Muli Grignon of Kenya, who led negotiations in recent weeks, presented the agreement for adoption even though Saudi Arabia and Bahrain had not, in fact, agreed to the document. The Irish ambassador, Geraldine Byrne Nason, asked for the adoption of the agreement over their stated objections. After a brief pause, she pounded the gavel and declared the agreement adopted.

As in other years, the disagreement among states involved abortion and homosexuality, and other controversial topics. It is not uncommon in these situations for the chair of the commission resort to what many delegations consider underhanded tactics to force an agreement.

The Saudi and Bahraini delegations stormed out of the meeting following the procedural kerfuffle. Al-Faris told the Friday Fax both delegations plan to follow-up and make formal complaints to the Commission on the Status of Women and the Economic and Social Council.

The procedural maneuver by the Irish chair of the commission caught all delegations off guard, including Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Other delegations expressed their confusion and surprise that Nason asked for adoption once the objections of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia were made known. The very nature of the agreed conclusions is that they are meant to be consensual.

“What happened during today’s process?” asked the delegate from Comoros.

The answer of the secretariat and the Irish ambassador was that there had been no objection to adoption. Procedurally, she may have prevailed, but the chair looked worried and uneasy throughout the rest of the meeting.

The row over the adoption of the agreed conclusions also sparked a debate about the use of threats and pressure to force delegates to accept UN agreements.

Koki Muli, who was in charge of the negotiations, emotionally said she had been bullied and harassed and that she feared for her life during negotiations.

“I wasn’t accosted by anyone. But I felt pushed around by people,” she said.

A delegate who was in the closed negotiations told the Friday Fax that Koki Muli suggested it was pro-life groups who opposed “sexual and reproductive health” and “comprehensive sexuality education” who harassed her.

Many delegations expressed their sympathy for Koki Muli, including delegations that take pro-life positions, but they also complained about how donor governments threaten and bully delegates in New York when they don’t accept to abortion-related terms, LGBT issues, and attempts to redefine the family in UN agreements.

“Many delegates during this and past negotiations were victims of harassment and intimidation. They were threatened and their capitals were called. This practice is a disgrace!” exclaimed powerfully Monseigneur Tomasz Grysa of the Holy See.

“People should not suffer because they are doing their job,” he added.

The delegate of Bahrain said he had been “bullied and harassed by high UN officials” and threatened to his capital, the royal family. He asked for a “formal apology.”

The Saudi and Bahraini delegations complained about language in the agreement on sexual and reproductive health as a vehicle to promote abortion, the absence of any mention of the family “as the natural and fundamental group unit of society” in line with international law, and the failure to include any language about the importance of sovereignty. They protested that Koki Muli did not respect their requests and waited until the very end of the negotiations to discuss controversial items.

They were not alone in expressing a lack of consensus on abortion-related language, the inadequate attention to the family, and the flawed negotiations and adoption process.

The Holy See, the United States, Guatemala, Comoros, Bahrain, Belarus, Cameroon, Djibuti, Libya, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Gambia, Malasia, Mauritania, Nicaragua, Pakistan, the Russian Federation, Sudan, Zambia, Zimbabwe, expressed the same concerns.

The Anti-Orange Man Cult

by Paul Jacob, Contributing Author: How do you know you are in an end-time cult?

When you won’t accept the complete and utter failure of your prophecies when they come a cropper.

So, am I talking about the classic Leon Festinger, Henry W. Riecken, and Stanley Schachter study in social psychology, When Prophecy Fails: A Social and Psychological Study of a Modern Group that Predicted the Destruction of the World? In that work, social scientists infiltrated an eschatological cult to see how they would react when their prophecy of end times failed.

What did the cultists do?

Many doubled down, tweaked their original prophecy, and continued in their previous beliefs but with greater fervor.

But no. I am not talking about that, not directly.

I refer to the Mueller Report.

“For years, every pundit and Democratic pol in Washington hyped every new Russia headline like the Watergate break-in,” writes Matt Taibbi in “It’s official: Russiagate is this generation’s WMD?” Noting that while the story as it was hyped from the beginning was about espionage, a “secret relationship between the Trump campaign and Russian spooks who’d helped him win the election,” the biggest thing to come of it has been “Donald Trump paying off a porn star.”

Now that the Mueller Report has come to a fizzle, proving nothing very interesting or relevant, our reaction to the news that the President is not Putin’s puppet should be jubilation.

To shed a tear and get all choked up, like Rachel Maddow? That should signal the end time for the cult.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

"Total Exoneration"

by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: As you know by now, Special Counsel Robert Mueller released his completed report to Attorney General William Barr Friday evening. Barr and top Justice Department officials spent the weekend reviewing the report and he released a summary Sunday afternoon.

The New York Times, which led the charge for the collusion narrative, finally produced a headline that sums up reality: "A Cloud Over Trump's Presidency Is Lifted."

Here are some key points you should keep in mind as we go forward.
  • Only Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Attorney General Barr and a few other people have read the full report. But based on a summary released yesterday, we know that after 675 days of investigation Mueller did not indict the president, any of his family members or any campaign or administration officials for collusion with Russia.
  • Mueller found that no one on the Trump campaign "conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities." This fact stands in stark contrast to what the media and leading Democrats have told us for the last two years. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement last night declaring, "The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States."
  • Not only was there no collusion, but there were multiple attempts by people associated with Russia to solicit support from the Trump campaign and those efforts were rebuffed by Trump associates.
  • The anti-Trump cartel that has been desperately trying to overturn the results of the 2016 election just suffered another defeat that may be as big as the one they suffered on November 8, 2016.
  • The Mueller investigation did find evidence that Russia attempted to influence the election in an effort to divide the country. That is why Mueller indicted 25 Russians, including 12 intelligence officers.
  • It is worth this reminder: Who was in charge of the American government when Russia was attempting to interfere in the election? That would be Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Loretta Lynch, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey and the rogue gallery of Trump-haters at the Justice Department and the FBI. Donald Trump had no power over any lever of government while Russia was attempting to sabotage the 2016 election.
  • Some on the left are claiming Mueller's investigation was incomplete. For example, MSNBC's Chris Matthews was upset that Robert Mueller was unable to connect all the dots.
  • But here are the facts: Mueller employed a team of 19 lawyers, many of them staunch Hillary Clinton supporters, and 40 FBI agents, intelligence analysts and forensic accountants. He issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, nearly 500 search warrants. He made 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses. Sorry, Chris, but the dots simply did not connect.
  • On the issue of obstruction, Mueller left a tiny crack in the door for Democrats to explore, writing that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." Many legal experts say this is a biased statement that never should have been included in the report. If there is no crime, no collusion, how could the president obstruct justice? Prosecutors don't exonerate. They either find evidence of a crime or they don't. They either indict or they don't indict.
  • The next phase of the battle started within an hour of Mueller's delivery of the report. The left and the media are attempting to force the release of the entire Mueller report. But as this debate heats up, many prominent legal experts like Ken Starr and Mark Levin are reminding us that in the United States if an individual is not indicted we do not drag them through the mud by leaking details of an investigation that found no crime.
  • In addition, Justice Department regulations prohibit Mueller from publicly commenting on the investigation. Mueller is obligated to deliver the report to one individual, the attorney general, and the attorney general is only obligated to summarize the report to Congress.
  • Attorney General Barr has said that he wants to release as much of the report as he can, consistent with the laws and regulations that govern such reports. There are three areas of information that are protected: Grand jury proceedings, particularly when there is no indictment; information covered by executive privilege, which ensures that the president and his staff are able to speak or write honestly at all times; and information related to national security.
  • Don't miss the irony that for the last two years we and many others have been asking for documents to be made public regarding who said what to the FISA courts that set off the unprecedented government monitoring of a presidential campaign. We were told that information was too sensitive to release.
  • The same left-wing members of Congress, progressive presidential contenders and their media allies who are demanding every word of the Mueller report defended the Justice Department and the FBI when it regularly sent incomplete information and redacted memos to congressional investigators for the past two years. Now, all of a sudden, they want total transparency.
It is infuriating to ponder how this two-year investigation was used by the left to smear Donald Trump, thwart his agenda and undermine his presidency. We were repeatedly told by commentators and elected officials that it was a good bet we would watch Trump family members marched out of their homes in handcuffs and that the president would be impeached.

Senior Obama intelligence officials like James Clapper, John Brennan, and Andrew McCabe suggested that the president of the United States was a Russian agent.

As President Trump said yesterday: "[The Mueller probe] began illegally. And hopefully somebody is going to look at the other side. This was an illegal takedown that failed."

ABC's Terry Moran said there would have to be "a reckoning" on the political left, in Congress and in the media if Mueller found no collusion. I agree.

There must be accountability for the individuals who abused the immense powers of the national security apparatus of this country to spy on their political opponents and to smear them as traitors.

Congressional Republicans and Attorney General Barr must not give up on exposing every individual who was responsible for using a Hillary Clinton/DNC-funded dossier to try to destroy a duly elected president of the United States.

Events are moving fast and we will have additional observations later today in our regular "End of Day" report

Attorney General Sees No Case for Obstruction as Mueller Finds No Collusion With Russia

Robert Mueller
by Fred Lucas: It’s no longer only President Donald Trump and his allies saying “no collusion.” Special counsel Robert Mueller has reached the same conclusion that the Trump campaign did not conspire with Moscow to gain advantage in the 2016 election.

Mueller also did not uncover actionable evidence in his 22-month probe that Trump sought to obstruct justice by impeding the probe, Attorney General William Barr said Sunday.

However, the special counsel didn’t make a determination on whether Trump obstructed justice. Barr said that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined there was no obstruction case.

But Trump claimed “complete and total exoneration” on both fronts, and said the investigation was the result of an “illegal takedown that failed.”

Departing Sunday afternoon from Florida to return to Washington, Trump spoke for the first time since Mueller delivered the report Friday, noting that many people were “so badly hurt” in the course of the probe.

“It was just announced there was no collusion with Russia, [which was] the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. There was no collusion with Russia,” Trump told reporters. “There was no obstruction, none whatsoever. It was a complete and total exoneration.”

The president added:It’s a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest, it’s a shame that your president has had to go through this. Before I even got elected it began, and it began illegally. And, hopefully, somebody is going to look at the other side. This was an illegal takedown that failed. And hopefully, somebody is going to be looking at the other side. It was complete exoneration. No collusion, no obstruction.Barr, in a letter to members of Congress, said Sunday that Mueller found no evidence linking the Trump campaign to Russian election meddling after his investigative team of 19 lawyers and 40 FBI agents conducted 500 interviews, issued 2,800 subpoenas, and executed 500 search warrants.

“The special counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its effort to influence the 2016 presidential election,” Barr said in the four-page letter summarizing the Mueller report.

The attorney general’s letter quotes the Mueller report as saying: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Trump had been uncharacteristically silent on Twitter all weekend. Before he made his public comments, however, he tweeted: “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
But House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., made it clear he isn’t finished.
At least some details from the special counsel’s report likely will come out, and Democrats insist the entire matter isn’t over.

Mueller’s team investigated potential obstruction of justice regarding Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey in May 2017 and other matters.

Mueller “ultimately decided not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment” on obstruction, Barr said in his letter.

“The special counsel did not draw a conclusion one way or another as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction,” the attorney general said.

On the question of obstruction, Barr quotes the Mueller report as saying that “while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

He also quotes the report as saying “the evidence does not establish the president in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference.”

Barr added: “Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and I have concluded that the evidence developed during the special counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish the president committed obstruction of justice.”

Rosenstein appointed Mueller, a former FBI director, in May 2017 because then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself from overseeing the FBI’s initial probe.

In his letter, Barr said his “goal and intent” is to release as much of the report as possible, “consistent with applicable law.”

Barr said in the letter to the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate Judiciary committees that his review of the Mueller report continues.

“It is obvious that special counsel Robert Mueller conducted a thorough and sifting investigation, which comes as no surprise to anyone who knows him or is familiar with his reputation,” Heritage Foundation legal scholar John Malcolm said Sunday evening in an email to The Daily Signal. “He has concluded that although the Russians did attempt to interfere with the 2016 election (and likely several others), nobody connected with the Trump campaign was complicit in this activity.”

“As to obstruction of justice, Mueller laid out all the facts—most of which were public acts and comments that have already been dissected and analyzed—both pro and con on this issue,” said Malcolm, director of Heritage’s Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, adding:Attorney General Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein have analyzed that evidence and concluded, quite reasonably, that a provable case of obstruction of justice does not exist. This is not surprising given that the vast majority of people who engage in obstruction of justice do so because they are, in fact, guilty of the matter which is being investigated—which is not the case here. While the Democrats will, no doubt, continue to investigate these matters, they will not uncover anything that special counsel Mueller has not uncovered and thoroughly analyzed.Republicans and Democrats want to see as much of the special counsel report on Russian election interference made public as possible—but for different reasons.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said earlier Sunday that he favors seeing the report made available with classified information redacted.

“I want to see all of it. What was the underlying criminal predicate for the entire investigation?” Rubio said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” referring to the shadowy beginnings of the FBI probe of a newly elected president, Donald Trump.

Rubio said he is interested in seeing that more than just Mueller’s report to Barr becomes public.

“Let’s see the FISA applications, because this was an extraordinary use of government surveillance power, and we have legal reasons why you might be able to use it, but show us why those were,” Rubio said.

“What was the underlying predicate for those FISA applications,” the Florida Republican asked, referring to the FBI’s requests for warrants to surveil Trump associates under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. “Let’s see all of that. Let’s put all of that out there as well, so we can pass judgment about how the investigation was conducted during the Obama years.”

Rubio and other Republicans hope to expose the partisan motives behind the initial investigation of possible Trump campaign ties to Moscow.

A House Intelligence Committee memo released last year indicated that the probe might have begun as a result of an opposition research document against Trump, known as the Steele dossier, which then was used as the basis for the FBI’s spying on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page during the waning days of the Obama administration.

The Steele dossier, named for former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled it, was financed by Democrat Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and by the Democratic National Committee.

The contents of the Mueller report remained unknown Sunday to all but Barr and a few other Justice Department officials, but it reportedly does not call for any more indictments in the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.

However, Nadler said earlier Sunday that Congress must have the full report to conduct oversight.

“America needs answers as to what’s been going on. I hope the Justice Department will not leave things hanging by seeking to keep things secret,” Nadler said on “Meet the Press,” adding:I also know the Department of Justice believes it cannot under any circumstances indict a sitting president for anything. That means they cannot hold a sitting president accountable. And accordingly, the only institution that can is Congress, and Congress must get all of the information that is available. … If we can’t do that, then the president is above the law.Mueller’s 675-day probe officially ended Friday, when the special counsel delivered his report to Barr at the Justice Department. Barr, who took office last month, had indicated Friday evening that he might be able to brief some members of Congress on the report Sunday.

Nadler said Democrat-controlled House committees would do additional investigations of the Trump administration, but that seeing most of the Mueller report would minimize duplicated effort.

“We need to see all the evidence and we shouldn’t have to waste our time and the public’s time and money recreating the same information by interviewing all the same witnesses. There is no need for that duplication at all,” Nadler said.

Doubling down with a congressional probe of matters Mueller already has investigated appears to be Democrats’ way of responding to a report that apparently didn’t turn out the way they wanted, said Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee.

“They think that they can go into the Judiciary Committee and any other committee with a limited budget, limited subpoena power, or limited staff and go up against an investigation that lasted 22 months, had unlimited subpoena power, had plenty of investigators, and they think they can find something more than they did,” Collins said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“I think they are sadly mistaken, and I think the American people will see through that,” he said.

Under Justice Department guidelines designed to protect those who are not charged, the entire report cannot be made public without the attorney general’s consent, consistent with other criminal investigations, said Hans von Spakovsky, a former Justice Department lawyer.

“Barr has made it clear that he is going to do exactly what the regulations say he is supposed to do,” von Spakovsky, now a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, said Saturday on Fox News Channel.

“What everyone needs to keep in mind is this is a confidential report,” von Spakovsky said. “That’s true of all reports that prosecutors make in all criminal investigations. What the regulations say is [Barr] can release parts of the report or all of it if it’s in the public interest.”

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., among the bigger partisan bomb throwers during the course of Mueller’s investigation, sounded more measured Sunday.

“I never said I thought the president committed the crime of conspiracy,” Schiff said before Barr released his letter.

“We are all determined that this report cannot be buried, that no strategy of briefing a select number of members will avoid the need for transparency here,” he said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Schiff later added: “The briefing I think we’re going to get this weekend is only going to be very topline conclusions.”

Schiff said Friday that he would expect Mueller to testify before Congress. Nadler, however, said he does not want to call any witnesses before the Judiciary Committee unless it’s necessary.

The lack of additional indictments and no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, based on congressional probes, are indicators of what the report will conclude, predicted Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, ranking member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

“To date, there has been not one bit of evidence to show any type of coordination, collusion, and conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the election,” Jordan said Sunday morning on “Face the Nation.”

Jordan noted that the investigation goes further back than the Mueller probe.

“When this thing all started, back in May 2017, the Justice Department had already been looking into this issue. They started in 2016, late summer 2016,” he said.

Referring to congressional testimony by Comey and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Jordan said:All the way up until the special counsel was named in May of 2017, there was no evidence of collusion at that point either. Because when we deposed Lisa Page, when we deposed Jim Comey, they both told us, up until the point Comey left the FBI, there was no evidence of collusion.

Now, 22 months later, there still doesn’t appear to be any evidence of any type of coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to impact the election. We’ll read the report and see what it says, but that seems to be the facts as we know them.
