Would James Comey Lie?


In his final congressional testimony before he was fired by President Trump this month, then-FBI Director James Comey unequivocally told lawmakers his agency used sensitive espionage data gathered about Americans without a warrant only when it was “lawfully collected, carefully overseen and checked.”

Once-top secret U.S. intelligence community memos reviewed by Circa tell a different story, citing instances of “disregard” for rules, inadequate training and “deficient” oversight and even one case of deliberately sharing spy data with a forbidden party.

I read the Wikipedia entry for Circa News but I am still confused as to who they are. Amazing that they do more actual reporting than most news organizations, including Fox News.

Perez Hits The Green Wall! No This Is Not About Fenway Park

The Greenheads, for all their silliness, know a con job when they see one, having witnessed their comrade from Vermont get shafted by DWS and Donna Brazile. Apparently Perez got booed when he mentioned Putin's name. Not the only time during his speech either.

Scandal Rocks The Fourth Estate: Schieffer Caught Normalizing The President

If you want to win the argument for the proliferation of gross media bias and you only have 1:15 to do so, I recommend the following video.

We thought Bob Schieffer had retired but like a case of herpes, he just keeps coming back. The normalizing charge could get him blacklisted, however.

Hat tip to Fire Andrea Mitchell.

WILL SCHIEFFER GET PROBATION?

Kim Dotcom To Address Seth Rich's Death On Tuesday

This should be a bad news week for the president. Every time an old scandal re-emerges for the Dems, a flurry of anonymous leaks rain down on the news media. Coincidentally, these leaks all seem to paint the president in a negative light. Almost as if an invisible hand were at play. If I was not reflexively dismissive of conspiracies...

The following video is the best summary of the Seth Rich saga. His family is odd, to say the least. I have known grown people with Disney fetishes but...please don't get bogged down in the sideshow his family brings to the story.


TRACY BEANZ

The Seth Rich murder is not the only story in the news that could ultimately result in a Trump diversion leak. The DNC is facing two possible class action suits, neither of which would paint the donkeys in splashy colors. The first is from Bernie Sanders donors who are rightfully claiming fraud because Wasserman -Schultz and others stacked the deck against their candidate.

Oh, and by the way, the lawyers for the plaintiffs are perplexed at the media blackout. Given the wholesale collusion between Hillary and her pals in the fourth estate, one can understand why they don't care to discuss the litigation. It could get embarrassing if self-proclaimed unbiased journalists are called as witnesses and are asked pointed questions about the assistance they gave to Clinton at Sanders' expense.

In the suit, Wilding v. DNC, the Sanders supporters and their attorneys claim Schultz and the Democratic National Committee defrauded them out of their money by pledging to be neutral when in fact the committee was working, from early on, to help Hillary Clinton — and only Hillary Clinton. They accuse them of “intentional, willful, wanton and malicious” conduct.
They also accuse the DNC and its chairwoman, Wasserman Schultz, of negligent misrepresentation, violation of a local District of Columbia law, unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, and negligence for failing “to use and exercise reasonable and due care in obtaining, retaining and securing the personal and financial information provided to them” by people who donated to the committee.
 That is not the only embarrassing lawsuit The Democrat Party faces. Field workers are suing to collect overtime pay
The Democratic National Committee and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz are currently facing a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters in federal court for rigging the Democratic primaries in favor of Hillary Clinton. On May 12, CBS reported another class action lawsuit was filed against the DNC for stiffing dozens of field organizers all over the country for overtime work during the 2016 election while the DNC gave out $1 million in bonuses, including more than $300,000 to Democratic National Convention Host Committee Executive Director Kevin Washo. The lawsuit was filed by Justin Swidler of Cherry Hill, N.J. on behalf of 40 to 50 field organizers against the DNC, Pennsylvania state Democrats, and five other state Democratic Parties. “These workers were out there in a campaign that was promising $15 an hour minimum wage and expanding the overtime rights of workers,” Swidler told CBS. He added the lawsuit seeks “fair pay for fair work” and to hold the Democratic Party accountable to the ideals it markets itself with.
Chair of the Democratic National Convention Host Committee and former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell alleged that the Democratic National Convention was separate from the operations noted in the lawsuit. Many of the plaintiffs in the class action lawsuit worked 80 to 90 hours a week for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and were compensated only $3,000 a month.
 Here is H. A. Goodman's take on the corrupt DNC. BTW, I have nothing but praise for Goodman. He is a Sanders supporter but his integrity is unassailable. Hey Diogenes, shine that light on Goodman. He posts two or three videos a day and every one of them is worth viewing. Check him out regularly. And please sign his petition. I did.

James Simpson Is Writing What We Are All Thinking

One of the reasons I am posting this, is because until today I had never heard of James Simpson. My point is that there are millions of James Simpsons out there. This is the voice of everyman who has not surrendered his critical judgment to the collective media papacy.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), that stalwart example of political grace, politesse, and comity, leveled his stern opinion: “In a week full of revelation after revelation — on a day when we thought things couldn’t get any worse, they have,” he said on the Senate floor. “I say to all of my colleagues in the Senate: History is watching.”
The heroic John McCain, ever a voice of level-headedness, moderation, and grace, said that the White House scandals are rising to “Watergate-size and scale.” Wow!
In an opinion piece, appropriately titled “No More Benefit of the Doubt,” the formidable Erick Erickson himself said, “Frankly, if there is not a course correction soon, the President needs to consider resigning.”
I have to ask: Are these people serious?
I have never, ever, ever seen such hyperbole in my entire life of watching this sordid melodrama called Washington, D.C., play itself out on the world stage. The cacophony is shaking the rafters. It is almost impossible to hear oneself think.
And after all, that is the goal isn’t it?
I hereby channel my inner Knute Rockne and tell my team that we cannot wallow in discouragement. CNN et al, want us to give up our minds and and souls and our resolve and bow to the Anderson Coopers. Drink the Kool-Aid and enjoy your zombie baptism. It feels good to be numb. Stupid is bliss...
They cannot discourage us without our cooperation. Let me remind my fellow Americans that the election of Donald Trump was a literal, not a figurative, miracle that exceeded Biblical proportions. Scripture gave us David slaying Goliath. American History gives us Donald Trump defeating a legion of Goliaths. Defeated but not slayed. 
We beat them before, we will beat them again. And again. And again. Remember when they trotted out an army of Silvers and Sabatos to discourage us from voting? Hillary 89 % chance...Hillary 91 % chance...Never Trumpers..."The beginning of the end"...Who will join Hillary's Cabinet?...Landslide!...The Zombie shepherds failed then and they will continue to fail is long as we resist them (And oh, by the way, Keith and Hillary, we are still The Resistance! We resist the entrenched, covert, deep state global nexus with every morsel of our fiber. GET YOUR OWN DAMN CLICHES!)
James Simpson redux:
  • Rolling back heinous Obama environmental regulations, including:
  • Reversing Obama’s war on coal
  • Approving the Keystone Pipeline
  • Neutering Obama’s insane global warming agenda
  • Rebuilding our military – reduced under Obama to pre-World War I levels
  • Cutting funding for sanctuary cities
  • Strengthened border enforcement
–    Illegal Southern Border crossings have declined 74 percent since December.
  • Strengthened law enforcement
  • Standing up for law enforcement
  • Standing up for Second Amendment rights
  • Reducing regulations on manufacturers
  • Placing a hiring freeze on federal employees
  • Exiting the U.S. from the TPP
  • Despite the court stay on Trump’s executive order on immigration, refugee resettlement is down significantly, and – music to my ears – the corrupt, self-serving resettlement industry is wailing about its lost funding
  • And much more
So the Washington hysteria grows, feeding on every new concocted outrage. But if you open your eyes, it is exactly as planned.
What we are really witnessing is an unprecedented effort to destroy this presidency. They have said that is their intention. And Republicans, not content to sit on the sidelines and watch their serially corrupt Democrat brethren and the Democrats’ media and street thug allies wreak havoc, have jumped in to help out rather than get tarred with the same brush.
I for one, stand with James Simpson.
