Vindicated yet again? What difference at this point does it make?

So we now get conclusive proof that our suspicion that “the FBI investigation of EmailGate was a sham“, bears out:

From the moment the EmailGate scandal went public more than a year ago, it was obvious that the Federal Bureau of Investigation never had much enthusiasm for prosecuting Hillary Clinton or her friends. Under President Obama, the FBI grew so politicized that it became impossible for the Bureau to do its job – at least where high-ranking Democrats are concerned.

As I observed in early July, when Director James Comey announced that the FBI would not be seeking prosecution of anyone on Team Clinton over EmailGate, the Bureau had turned its back on its own traditions of floating above partisan politics in the pursuit of justice. “Malfeasance by the FBI, its bending to political winds, is a matter that should concern all Americans, regardless of their politics,” I stated, noting that it’s never a healthy turn of events in a democracy when your secret police force gets tarnished by politics.

Just how much Comey and his Bureau punted on EmailGate has become painfully obvious since then. Redacted FBI documents from that investigation, dumped on the Friday afternoon before the long Labor Day weekend, revealed that Hillary Clinton either willfully lied to the Bureau, repeatedly, about her email habits as secretary of state, or she is far too dumb to be our commander-in-chief.

Worse, the FBI completely ignored the appearance of highly classified signals intelligence in Hillary’s email, including information lifted verbatim from above-Top Secret NSA reports back in 2011. This crime, representing the worst compromise of classified information in EmailGate – that the public knows of, at least – was somehow deemed so uninteresting that nobody at the FBI bothered to ask anybody on Team Clinton about it.

This stunning omission appears highly curious to anybody versed in counterintelligence matters, not least since during Obama’s presidency, the FBI has prosecuted Americans for compromising information far less classified than what Clinton and her staff exposed on Hillary “unclassified” email server of bathroom infamy.

This week, however, we learned that there is actually no mystery at all here. The FBI was never able to get enough traction in its investigation of EmailGate to prosecute anybody since the Bureau had already granted immunity to key players in that scandal.

Granting immunity is a standard practice in investigations, and is sometimes unavoidable. Giving a pass to Bryan Pagliano, Hillary’s IT guru who set up her email and server, made some sense since he understands what happened here, technically speaking, and otherwise is a small fish. The wisdom of giving him a pass now seems debatable, though, since Pagliano has twice refused to testify before Congress about his part in EmailGate, blowing off subpoenas. Just this week the House Oversight Committee recommended that Pagliano be cited for contempt of Congress for his repeated no-shows. That vote was on strictly partisan lines, with not a single Democrat on the committee finding Pagliano’s ignoring of Congressional subpoenas to be worthy of censure.

So there you have it. It was rigged from the jump, and the reason why is obvious: this country is run by crooks and has basically become a banana republic. The law is only for the plebes. Our political aristocracy, well some people connected to the Democratic Party and those in that party holding the highest jobs, are above it all. They can do whatever they want, especially the criminal stuff, and get away with it.

There was never going to be any investigation, because it would have led to Obama’s door. The Clintons knew this. So this corrupt administration had the FBI do a Kabuki show for the plebes, and then swept the crimes under the rug. Our legal system is not to be trusted anymore. And our political class is definitely degenerated into a criminal enterprise run by a bunch of families that give the Mafia a run for their money. What as shame. I guess this is what fundamental change looks like. And don’t expect the press to cover this and feel used and disgusted because of the lies and being taken advantage off. My guess is that the press knew this was happening all along and went with it, because they only feel crimes can be committed by the political enemies of leftist ideology.

Whenever you hear a leftists preach from his or her soap box about how corrupt the other side is, remember that all they are doing is projecting. They assume because they are doing it the other side is too, or worse, they are basically fooling you into thinking that the unlawful corruption isn’t their doing. These are the people that after all feel it is more important for their ideology to win and are willing to do anything to make it so. Don’t worry though. CM will tell you they are doing great in rigged polls, so all is well and reality doesn’t matter. Dark times are a coming.

P.S. Nixon called. He wants a mulligan, cause he got screwed for far less.

Vindicated? Yeah, but they mean well so ignore it…

Well, I was certain that when Obama told everyone he had no clue Hillary was using an illegal server – an act that should have had her wearing an orange jumpsuit and printing license plates while not making sweet love with Big Bertha – back whenever that this was just another one of his many lies that we would never get the skinny on. Turns out I was wrong for a change:

President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.

The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

The 189 pages the bureau released includes interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials; and even Marcel Lazar, better known as the Romanian hacker “Guccifer.”

In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.

“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?'” the report says. “Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.”

The State Department has refused to make public that and other emails Clinton exchanged with Obama. Lawyers have cited the “presidential communications privilege,” a variation of executive privilege, in order to withhold the messages under the Freedom of Information Act.

The report doesn’t provide more details on the contents of that particular email exchange, but says it took place on June 28, 2012, and had the subject line: “Re: Congratulations.” It may refer to the Supreme Court’s ruling that day upholding a key portion of the Obamacare law.

I bet you that like Clinton, the asshole that promised the most transparent administration evah! (anyone remember that promise?), will plead stupidity and expect a pass from the usual morons. I expect the media to give this all a wide birth (covering it like angel of mercy nurses do to their victims with a pillow) or spin it for all it is worth. Their focus will be on Trump saying something un-PC. In the mean time the world finds out that the US is being run by a crime syndicate masquerading as the DNC. But who cares about that? The left means well!

You couldn’t make shit like this up..

Remember that activist that got all pissed at Trump for saying too many illegal immigrants were criminals, in particular rapists, a while back? No, well, here is a refresher. Guess what just happened to this dude? He just got charged with raping someone and tampering with evidence to conceal he had done that: an illegal alien to boot.

You may not be aware of it, but I am noticing that a ton of the predictions or comments made by people that were then excoriated by the left and their attack dogs in the media – Russia & China are dangerous, Obamacare is a disaster, Iran is playing us and what the Obama administration is doing about it is really scary, all this talk of rape on campus sure feels made up, Clinton is a lying crook, and something is definitely wrong with her medically, and so on – have not only panned out, but panned out so blatantly, that despite the DNC operatives with bylines’ attempt to disregard or even hide these stories, you couldn’t have missed them unless you wanted to. I am sure we will get hours and hours of coverage for this story like we do whenever the media hopes to convince you that the evil people that the left hate said or did something wrong. PSYCHE!

It’s almost as if reality is putting a major beatdown on these idiots and their fantasy world views and ideas. No, it isn’t almost like: it is! Reality is basically ripping the left’s narrative and agenda to shreds. You can’t change the laws of economics, of human nature, of mother nature, or physics, but these morons seem to think if the right people try, it somehow will happen. And they have the gall to make fun of people that believe in religion or other such items that others feel are fantasy. Heh!

I think it was Lord Melbourne that said: “What all the wise men promised has not happened, and what all the damned fools said would happen has come to pass.”

Fox Hunting

My oh my, how giddy has the MSM been lately over all this personnel shuffling sexual harassment dog shit pile over at Foxnews? They are tripping all over themselves, reveling in the schadenfreude . The news entity that has been kicking all their butts for 25 years has developed some cracks. No, your news coverage still sucks, still partisan and petty to the point of inducing vomit, still blatantly in the tank for Hillary (or Bernie), still running interference for the democratic party/raising money for the democratic party/shooting every news story thru the prism political expediency, still carrying water for the democratic party, but lets just take a moment to soak it all in. Too bad they are just as bad at news reporting as they are at economics. Taking money from the rich does not enhance the financial condition of the poor, and bringing the news leader down a few notches does not make your unwatchable news shows better, if only life was that easy.

Some bullet points;

Ailes is out (about time, what a creep).

Gretchen Carlson is now $20 million richer, nice work if you can get it.

Andrea Tantaros wants to wet her beak as well, Fox can afford it.

Gretta Van Sustern is out, backing the wrong horse and paying the price for it.

Bill Oreilly is laying low, being implicated (but not named personally in the suit)

Megyn Kelly is sitting pretty, financially. The riff between her and Oreilly is palatable.She is still miffed over the network not supporting her during the Trump attacks (bleeding in the eyes and ………..wherever, ickky). So now Foxnews must decide if they want to break the bank to keep her, or let her go over to CNN and erode their base even further.

I know it is de-rigueur to rip Foxnews, everybody does it.But here’s the deal, we owe Foxnews a lot. In the land of group speak they were the only alternative, the only place where you did not get your news filtered thru democrat cheerleaders, that was huge. And oh boy did the country need it, to the point of making Foxnews the highest rated (by a mile) news station in decades. Without Foxnews, Rush, and all the subsequent copycats (the right wing radio stations and right wing books annihilate the other side consistently) the public would be even less informed then they are now, if that’s possible.

So now some bloom is coming off the rose, to be expected. Their actual news shows (not commentary) is still top notch, but many of their commentators are getting long in the tooth. Some people I could see less of ( a lot less), Bill Oreilly, Eric Bohling, Juan Williams, Geraldo Rivera, Austin Goolsbee. I didn’t mention Hannity because I never watch his show anyway.

There is a new kid on the block that I mention because they do good work and occasionally get my eyeballs, One America News. One show in particular, Tipping Point with Liz Wheeler, terrific. Here is a sample;

and if you have a few minutes, her speech at the last CPAC was great;

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and competition always benefits the consumer. The template is out there, even if Foxnews wains, others can step up and deliver.

The establishment has decided to make sure they win the election

I was wondering why the democrats had suffered so many hacking attacks recently by people that actually should be their fellow travelers, and after this announcement, the picture is now clear. Maybe I am a conspiracy cook, but the way things are playing out right now is too much coincidence even for me to dismiss tampering. after all, we are dealing with the most corrupt and self serving bunch of people in my lifetime, and expecting them not to do what comes natural to them, is far more of a stretch to me than the other way around.

This administration has lied, cheated, abused their power, and in general ripped off the productive to enrich the few connected and cement their power, and they now are rigging the game to make sure one of them wins so they can keep at it. As Stalin pointed out: cast votes are not as important as whomever gets to count them. And what better way to make sure the credentialed elite establishment types can make sure to get the results they want without risking too much of a chance that the plebes find out they are being played. The law is for the little people after all, as both the Obama administration and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s constant criminal activities getting a pass, has made clear.

Thanks for the banana republic Obama and the democratic party in general!

How much you wanna bet that the decision here will be to bend reality?

So the SJW types have been on the warpath for decades to socialize the military – an organization which has as its primary (and some would say its sole) purpose the job of breaking shit and killing people – and to prove that biology is no match for the imagination of the social justice warrior’s quest. Only problem is that reality keeps getting in the way. My bet is that reality is about to be shown who is boss, and that despite all the claims to the contrary, the military will be forced to lower standards for female to allow them to pass, so the SJW can claim victory. That this weakens the military and creates dangerous situations won’t matter until coffins come home, and I am sure the SJW will then blame it on any non democrat president that dared to use the military for anything other than peace core duties.

There is plenty of stuff in the military that women can do where the lowered physical standards don’t matter too much, but combat is rarely one of those, and special warfare units are definitely not the case. You can ignore biology, but reality has a horrible way of fucking up the SJW’s fantasies and stupidity.

I knew it had to somehow be Boosh’s fault!

And as usual, the tards don’t let me down:

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton told federal investigators that Colin Powell, a former secretary of State, advised her to use a personal email account, the New York Times reports.

The newspaper said the information, from a three-and-a-half-hour interview with Clinton in July, is included in notes the Federal Bureau of Investigation gave to Congress on Tuesday.

The NYT also cites a book by political journalist Joe Conason that says during a conversation at a dinner party hosted by another former secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, in Washington in 2009, Powell advised Clinton to use her “own email” except for classified communications.

The newspaper says it received an advance copy of the book, called Man of the World: The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton.

“Toward the end of the evening, over dessert, Albright asked all of the former secretaries to offer one salient bit of counsel to the nation’s next top diplomat,” Conason writes in the book, according to the NYT.

“Powell told her to use her own email, as he had done, except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a State Department computer.”

“Saying that his use of personal email had been transformative for the department,” Mr. Powell “thus confirmed a decision she had made months earlier — to keep her personal account and use it for most messages,” the extract continued.

That emphasis is mine. Because this scumbag Clinton is again trying to confuse the issue by pretending what she did was the norm, which is that she had used her personal account- as advised – to conceal the nefarious and criminal activity of that Clinton foundation funds – but ignored the most important part of that advice she got: EXCEPT FOR CLASSIFIED COMMUNICATIONS!

If you for a second doubted that Clinton being let off was political and an act of corrupt government, note how others are not given the same latitude for far less. But that’s what the US has become after the last 8 years: a banana republic.

That was the plan from the start

For those that don’t get it, the people that foisted the Obamacare monstrosity on us see this as a feature, not a problem:

When Aetna Inc. announced that it would withdraw from three-quarters of the states where it offers Affordable Care Act exchange plans, the move wasn’t entirely unexpected: The company had signaled its woes early this month.

But the decision by one of the nation’s largest health insurers AET, -0.20% to withdraw from 11 of 15 state exchanges follows similar moves by UnitedHealth Group Inc. UNH, -0.38%, the largest U.S. health insurer, and Humana Inc. HUM, +0.00% , another large health insurer.

The string of bad news marks a tidal shift for the ACA. Where insurers, including Aetna, had once planned on exchange expansions next year, many are instead curtailing their coverage.

Aetna’s pared-down 2017 exchange participation “raises further questions about the long-term viability of the ACA marketplaces,” said Susquehanna analyst Chris Rigg.

Aetna explained the decision as a way to “limit our financial exposure moving forward,” after pretax losses of $200 million in the second quarter and losses totaling $430 million on individual products since January 2014. The company did not specify what portion of the losses was attributable to individual public plan offerings.

The company criticized the ACA’s “inadequate” risk-adjustment mechanism, which is meant to limit insurers’ losses as they start covering sicker individuals. It’s a common criticism from health insurers, which have long said that the risk-pool program isn’t working the way it’s supposed to, though others say big insurance companies should instead change their model to keep costs down.

You know what? Even though I have investments in Aetna funds, I can’t say I feel sorry for them. They were stupid enough to buy the lies the crooked democrats told them, and this is on them. There is no way to make a system that allows people to not join and pay until they have a serious condition – and the penalty never comes to the level of pain one faces buying this shit because of the over regulation of this product – work financially. Why the fuck would someone young not opt for the penalty and only sign up whenever the shit hits the fan later in life, huh? And Aetna should have remembered this, but they bought the nonsense and figured they would somehow make it work. Idiot the lot of them.

Anyway, the fact of the matter is that all this hand wringing, now that Obamacare is doing exactly what those of us had pointed out it was designed to do when we saw it being put together, is bullshit. Obamacare was designed from the start to destroy the American healthcare system. All that talk about cost reduction or containment, helping people out, and especially making things better while allowing those of us that were happy to keep what we had, was just that: talk. The plan the left has been running with is single payer healthcare controlled by an all powerful government from the start, and this monstrosity was put together to facilitate that while fucking over the people that would otherwise never accept the single payer idea until the system had fallen apart.

Yeah, nobody was hurt by Hillary’s lapses in security

Something like this would end the political career of a republican, but for a leftist, it is a career booster, it seems. I wonder how Comey is feeling attributiing Clinton’s criminal activity to simple ignorance and negligence in light of more revelations like this. And it all comes right after the coordinated journolist attack from the left, just a week or two ago, where they made the case that Trump’s ways are dangerous for national security. Now we find out that this was just another case of projection as usual, because Hillary already got there first:

Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday.

“I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman,” he said on “Face the Nation.” Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran’s nuclear program.

The senator said this lapse proves she is not capable of keeping the country safe.

Don’t expect this story to make the rounds on the national news circuit. At least not until they find a way to blame the right and Trump for it. And where is this administration’s legal arm, huh? Shouldn’t they be filing charges yet?
