Well That Didn’t Take Long

The deranged leftists who’ve been histrionically demanding that James Comey be fired as head of the FBI are now demanding that Trump be impeached for firing him.

There is some evidence that mainstream voters are really turned off by the Democrats constant hysterical screaming. I wonder if Trump is cleverly exploiting this.

BTW, does anyone else find it weird that Hillary forwarded her emails to other people for printing? Is she too stupid to know how to use a printer?

Comey fired; Rod Rosenstein’s memo against him

…is laid out here. A few highlights:

The [FBI] Director [Comey] was wrong to usurp the Attorney General’s authority on July 15, 2016 and announce his conclusion that the case [against Hillary Clinton] should be closed without prosecution. It is not the function of the Director to make such an announcement. At most, the Director should have said that the FBI had completed its investigation and presented its findings to federal prosecutors…

Compounding the error, the Director ignored another longstanding principle: we do not hold press conferences to release derogatory information about the subject of a declined criminal investigation…we never release it gratuitously. The Director laid out his version of the facts as if it were a closing argument, but without a trial. It is a textbook example of what federal prosecutors and agents are taught not to do…

[Major Justice Department figures from BOTH parties slam Comey’s actions]

…the FBI is unlikely to regain public and congressional trust until it has a Director who understands the gravity of the mistakes and pledges never to repeat them. Having refused to admit his errors, the Director cannot be expected to implement the necessary corrective actions.

My thoughts:

  • Hillary Clinton did things for which other Americans are in jail.
  • At the time in 2016, blogs/media had rumors of numerous FBI agents saying she had better be prosecuted.
  • Something always seemed weird about Comey’s 2016 press conference, where he laid out the case for her guilt – but recommended against prosecution.
  • I always assumed that the weirdness was in her not being prosecuted, and that he had laid out her guilt as a halfway measure to prevent an internal revolt. (And I may still be right.)
  • I also see now how Comey was wrong ever to give such a press conference. He should have let Obama’s Justice Department take the heat for not prosecuting Hillary.
  • I still say that either Comey was an idiot, or he was acting to protect Obama and/or Hillary. (As opposed to the Left’s thinking that he was out to get Hillary.)
  • Glad to see Comey go. The real test will be who Trump replaces him with?

UPDATE: Breitbart thinks it has The Simple Explanation for Trump Firing James Comey When He Did.

The case for firing former FBI Director James Comey has been made at length by both Democrats and Republicans…

But why fire Comey now? The answer is simple. The day before, President Barack Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper repeated, under oath, what he told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on March 5 — that he had seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government…

Put simply, if Trump had fired Comey while there were still serious questions about Russia, then it would have been more plausible to accuse him of trying to interfere in the investigation or cover up whatever happened. It is now clear that nothing, in fact, happened. Monday’s hearing with Clapper and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was meant to reveal a “smoking gun,” and produced nothing but viral videos of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)…

Russia hysteria crosses the Atlantic

Recently, hackers hit Emmanuel Macron and aides, and dumped 9 Gigabytes of emails. The emails are still being analyzed but seem genuine, so far. Could they connect Macron (a French presidential candidate and now France’s President-Elect) to tax evasion? We shall see. As Wired puts it:

users of the anonymous forum 4Chan had also purported to have published evidence of Macron’s tax evasion…it’s not clear if they’re connected to the current leak.

How do our globalist, Deep State, Controlled Media betters respond to it? Blame the Russians, of course. ABC says:

The United States watched Russians hack France’s computer networks during the election and tipped off French officials before it became public, a U.S. cyber official told the Senate on Tuesday.

Because, how DARE we peasants have real information about the wrongdoing of any Protected political figure?

I have long doubted that the Russians have much to do with these episodes. First, we know that the CIA hacks into things and leaves Russian fingerprints deliberately to mislead people. Sad to say, you can never believe anything a U.S. intelligence agency says about who hacked anything.

Second, this particular story is hokey. After eight months of terrible accusations in the U.S. media, why would the Russians again (supposedly) do that exact same thing, in the exact same way, as if wanting to be caught and blamed?

Third, who benefits from a breakout of anti-Russia hysteria, this time? Macron, of course. And the European Union, which wants him to succeed. And globalist / Deep State types generally, which want the European Union to succeed.

When a politician’s information is hacked, the key point isn’t who brings it out, but whether it is real. In the case of Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and the DNC in 2016: The emails were all real. And they gave information about her shady dealings that voters needed and deserved. Could the same be true here, of Macron?

If you disagree (or know more about this), feel free to inform us in the comments.

“Shattered” gets it half-right

I just finished Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign. We’ve been commenting on excerpts from it for weeks. This is my take on the book as a whole.

On the plus side: The subject is delicious. (Reading the story of Election Night was pure Schadenfreude.) Allen and Parnes, the authors, write fairly well. And they don’t blame “Russia, Comey and misogyny” non-stop. They report on actual flaws of the candidate and her staff, and how those flaws kept her from closing the deal with Middle America.

On the minus side: The book is overly-detailed. The authors do blame “Russia, Comey and misogyny” some of the time. In the end, they are liberals writing for liberals. They don’t admit the depth of Hillary’s flaws. For example, they never admit the genuineness of the scandals dogging her: the fact that she broke laws for which other Americans are serving jail time, that she obstructed justice, that FBI Director Comey really gave her kid-glove treatment, etc.

In short, Allen and Parnes miss the larger story of the Clintons’ corruption – and how, in 2016, half of America finally stood up to it and beat it back. Instead, they bury the reader in details about Hillary’s innumerable aides and the in-fighting that she encouraged.

Overall, I enjoyed the book. Some key ideas (probably known to you already): (more…)

Obama Official Happy About Christian Genocide

The Obama Administration made an out-and-proud Islamic Supremacist a Homeland Security AdviserNow, the guy is openly celebrating the slaughter of Christians by his fellow Islamic Supremacists.

Why couldn’t Obama have hired one of those “peaceful” moderate Muslims we hear so much about.
