Guantanamo Bay Needs To Make Ready For The Biden Family Crime Syndicate

2 02 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Our Department of Defense has announced that it is transferring a “detainee” at Guantanamo Bay to Belize; and it has described the occupants of the American “detention camp” on Cuba.[2]  Presumably Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Joe’s brother, and their co-conspirators—including but not limited to the Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray—will become full-time residents of the prison.  It cannot happen fast enough.

Biden is “mentally-challenged” at best.  Brain Dead is a more accurate description of him.  In two short years, he has turned our great country upside down, and brought us to the brink of World War III.[3]. God love them, the American people know intuitively that Washington, D.C. is corrupt.  But they have no idea how corrupt.  It is Sodom and Gomorrah reconstituted; and Biden embodies that corruption and is emblematic of it.[4]. Will Kevin McCarthy and the Republicans stand tall, or throw in the towel?[5]

NFL Games Should Be Boycotted Until The Decisions Of Its Referees Are Reviewable, And A Hack Referee Is Fired

31 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Over the years, the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been criticized; and many have called for his resignation.  But so far, he has weathered the storms.[2]  The latest criticism of the league comes in the form of biased refereeing in a championship game—where the referee’s decisions should be reviewable; and the hack ref Ronald Tolbert should be fired and never allowed to referee another game during his lifetime.[3]. Needless to say, Cincinnati Bengals’ fans are livid.[4]

My two favorite quarterbacks in the NFL are Joe Burrow of the Bengals and Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs.  Both are excellent and a credit to the sport.  I have followed “Joe Cool” since he came to LSU and joined “Coach O”—or the wonderful Cajun, Ed Orgeron—to win the national championship and the coveted Heisman Trophy.  Last weekend, they squared off in the AFC championship game, with Mahomes being a bit “gimpy” because of an ankle injury.

The game should have been decided by the athletes, not by some hack ref who is a disgrace to the sport, and has been elevated beyond his capabilities.  As always, Burrow was a gentleman after the game, and classy; and he praised both teams and their players.[5]. But the fans were irate, and justifiably so.  At a time when many Americans turn to sports as a relief from their day-to-day financial stresses, and other worries and frustrations[6], skewed results in football are the last thing that they need.

Thuggery In America

28 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Moose Moosler commented at the UK’s MailOnline about the death in Memphis, Tennessee:

So it seems the ‘protestors’ don’t even know the 5 cops have already been fired and are up on charges of murder.  This nonsense has never been about what they say it is about.[2]

Since the anti-war demonstrations at Berkeley during the Vietnam War, and the Rodney King riots that began in Los Angeles, “professional” rioters have existed and spread their venom, like vicious vipers.

I have followed riots since my days in law school at Berkeley during that war, and then the Rodney King riots, and the burning of Washington D.C. after Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed in Memphis too.[3]

The thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels of “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups have burned our cities; killed or injured innocent Americans including our police; and destroyed black and other businesses.  Yet, few have been incarcerated. 

Does law enforcement sometimes overreact?  Of course.[4]  Many officers are frustrated; others have resigned or taken early retirements; and it’s surprising that there are many left, certainly where riots have occurred.  Why risk one’s life, only to be attacked?

Who Controls America?

20 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

I do not consider myself to be naïve.  Having spent two years in intelligence at the Pentagon with the highest security clearances possible at that time, and then having worked for three-and-a-half years in the United States Senate—and for many more years after that, working with the Congress and official Washington—I have seen both the good and the bad.  I was present when Joe Biden attended his first committee meeting, one month after his wife and daughter were killed in a tragic auto accident; and I had great sympathy for him.

I grew up in Hollywood (or Los Angeles), among the rich and famous; and I am not naïve about how the Harvey Weinsteins and their ilk have ruled that town for decades.  Women have been used and abused in both cities, like groupies at rock concerts.  It is what happens at the highest levels of power, throughout the world.  But every once in a while, something comes to my attention that incapsulates the evil that exists, and persists, better than I could describe it.  Last night it occurred in a monologue delivered by Tucker Carlson, which is worth repeating here.  I respectfully submit that it should be read (or viewed) in its entirety:

If you’re a normal person, it’s a pretty weird experience watching Joe Biden’s presidency get euthanized by his own party.  On one hand, there’s an undeniable thrill to it.  You have to admit that.  Biden is the most destructive president in American history.  More things have broken under his watch than under any other president.

Joe Biden deserves to be driven from office and disgraced, but for this?  Breaking federal classification rules, some of the stupidest and most dishonest laws Congress has ever passed?  It’s like arresting El Chapo for expired plates.  It’s missing the point, but it looks like that’s what’s going to happen.

It seems like every day, one of Joe Biden’s lawyers shows up with more sheaves of classified documents like a dog who has found another dead chipmunk under the house.  This bunch was in his office at Penn, the one paid for by the Communist Party of China.

These were found next to his sad, little midlife crisis sports car in a garage in Delaware and so on.  You keep waiting for the White House physician to announce another document trove has been discovered after a routine colonoscopy.  It could happen because at this point, you know exactly where this story is heading.

Permanent Washington does not want Joe Biden to run for president again.  This is how they’re sending that message.  Even CNN has decided to become interested in Joe Biden’s misdeeds two years into his presidency.  They’re doing segments in how classification laws protect this country from its mortal enemies like Russia.  So, you know for certain the order has gone out.  Biden is done.  What a missed opportunity this is.  If you’re looking for crimes that Joe Biden has committed, there is a very long list.

Our country is being invaded.  The world is on the brink of nuclear war.  American cities have become slums.  Our economy is in shambles.  Even our airplanes no longer take off on time.  It’s a disaster and Joe Biden and his staff have a hand in all of it.  In a country with a functioning government, Joe Biden would have been impeached before the first million illegal aliens crossed over our southern border, but no one did anything to stop it.  So now they’re arriving at the rate of a quarter-million a month.

GRIFF JENKINS: Customs and Border Protection sources exclusively tell Fox News more than 250,000 migrants were encountered at the border in the month of December, about as many people living in Scottsdale, Arizona, making it the highest month ever on record.  In Eagle Pass, Texas, the migrant surge continues.  Local Kinney County rancher Pam had a harrowing experience with migrants on her property.

RANCHER: I looked out the back and I could see three illegals walking up to the house.  I had gotten a gun, which is an AR-15.  I asked them, I said, “Please stop, go away,” and I had the gun in my hands and they just kind of looked at me and kind of smiled and I was like… “Just go away,” and they refused to do so. 

JENKINSThey’re on the other side of the glass trying to get in and not backing down?

RANCHER: Not backing down.  Even though I have a high-powerful rifle in my arms, they are not backing down.  That was scary.  

A rifle Joe Biden would like to take away from her.  So that, writ large, is the biggest story of our lifetimes.  It is the one thing Joe Biden has done that cannot be undone.  Our great-grandchildren are going to live with the consequences of this, but you’d never know it from watching most of the news.  There is an effective media blackout on Joe Biden’s immigration policies and other downstream effects on America.  There are too many strangers pouring in at once and as a result, the country is becoming chaotic.  Here’s a rare television news piece on what happened when officials in New York decided to house some of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens in a local hotel.

LAUREN SIMONETTI: An employee there says that migrants have made an absolute mess of the place.  You’re standing in front of it. Is that true?  

MADISON ALWORTH: Yeah, well, what we’re hearing from that employee is that the hotel is completely overrun.  He says, you know, of course, some people just looking for that better life, but as a result, the hotel is a mess and he fears for his safety.  

ROW NYC HOTEL EMPLOYEE FELIPE RODRIGUEZ: We don’t have any guests anymore.  They sold the entire hotel from the fourth floor to the 28th floor.  It’s all migrants.  So we got people who are getting drunk, using marijuana.  They are punching and beating their wives or their girlfriends.  We have teenagers running around wild around the hotel opening the fire exit doors and doing what teenagers do in the stairways and it’s a mess. 

“It’s a mess,” he said.  Of course, it is.  The whole country is a mess because Joe Biden has ignored immigration laws passed by the Congress.  That is a crime and it has killed huge numbers of Americans, hundreds of thousands dead from narcotics.

TOM WOLF, FORMER FENTANYL ADDICT: Fentanyl has changed the entire game here in San Francisco.  You can’t buy heroin out here anymore.  Nobody sells heroin and nobody uses heroin.  Everybody has transitioned over to fentanyl.  Fentanyl is the most dangerous drug to ever hit the streets in the United States in history.

SIMONETTI: Fentanyl has killed more than 70,000 Americans in 12 months.  Here in San Francisco, it’s the dominant drug.  It’s responsible for three-quarters of drug overdoses, brazen drug-dealing and rampant drug use in the shadow of city hall.  The same city hall, residents say, actively enable the fentanyl crisis.  

All of it.  Every gram came over an open border.  What’s notable as a political matter is that every one of these disasters, the fentanyl epidemic, the chaos and crime in our cities, the invasion underway through Texas, Arizona and California, all of those deeply concerned Americans.  We are not guessing at that.  Polls show it very clearly.

By contrast, how many voters do you think are lying awake right now worrying that public officials might violate some obscure federal classification law?  None, not a single person.  No one outside Washington cares or even understands the issue and yet it is classified documents, not our open borders, that the Justice Department is punishing Joe Biden for.  Why is that?  What’s going on here?  Well, it’s simple.  Washington is protecting itself.  Joe Biden alone is responsible for this crime.

He alone took home classified documents.  He didn’t have help in doing that, but allowing the country to be invaded, that’s not something you can do by yourself.  So, if Biden were to be taken down for opening the southern border, a lot of other people would go with them.  He had a lot of accomplices.  Permanent Washington doesn’t want that and ultimately and here’s the point: Permanent Washington is in charge.  It’s not the democracy you imagined.  We’re seeing that now.

So, if you want to understand, if you really want to understand how the American government actually works at the highest levels, and if you want to know why they don’t teach history anymore, one thing you should know is that the most popular president in American history was Richard Nixon.  Richard Nixon.  Yet somehow, without a single vote being cast by a single American voter, Richard Nixon was kicked out of office and replaced by the only unelected president in American history.  So, we went for the most popular president to a president nobody voted for.  Wait a minute, you may ask, why didn’t I know that?  Wasn’t Richard Nixon a criminal?

Wasn’t he despised by all decent people?  No, he wasn’t.  In fact, if any president could claim to be the people’s choice, it was Richard Nixon.  Richard Nixon was re-elected in 1972 by the largest margin of the popular vote ever recorded before or since.  Nixon got 17 million more votes than his opponent.  Less than two years later, he was gone.  He was forced to resign and in his place, an obedient servant of the federal agencies called Gerald Ford took over the White House.

How did that happen?  Well, it’s a long story, but here are the highlights and they tell you a lot.  Richard Nixon believes that elements in the federal bureaucracy were working to undermine the American system of government and had been doing that for a long time.  He often said that.  He was absolutely right.  On June 23, 1972, Nixon met with the then–CIA director, Richard Helms, at the White House.  During the conversation, which thankfully was tape-recorded, Nixon suggested he knew “who shot John,” meaning President John F. Kennedy.  Nixon further implied that the CIA was directly involved in Kennedy’s assassination, which we now know it was.  Helms’s telling response?  Total silence, but for Nixon, it didn’t matter because it was already over.  Four days before, on June 19, The Washington Post had published the first of many stories about a break-in at the Watergate office building. 

Unbeknownst to Nixon and unreported by The Washington Post, four of the five burglars worked for the CIA.  The first of many dishonest Watergate stories was written by a 29-year-old metro reporter called Bob Woodward.  Who exactly was Bob Woodward?  Well, he wasn’t a journalist.  Bob Woodward had no background whatsoever in the news business.  Instead, Bob Woodward came directly from the classified areas of the federal government.  Shortly before Watergate, Woodward was a naval officer at the Pentagon.

He had a top-secret clearance.  He worked regularly with the intel agencies.  At times, Woodward was even detailed to the Nixon White House, where he interacted with Richard Nixon’s top aides.  Soon after leaving the Navy, for reasons that have never been clear, Woodward was hired by the most powerful news outlet in Washington and assigned the biggest story in the country.  Just to make it crystal clear what was actually happening, Woodward’s main source for his Watergate series was the deputy director of the FBI, Mark Felt, and Mark Felt ran — and we’re not making this up — the FBI’s COINTELPRO program, which was designed to secretly discredit political actors, the federal agencies wanted to destroy — people like Richard Nixon.  And at the same time, those same agencies were also working to take down Nixon’s elected vice president, Spiro Agnew.  In the fall of 1973, Agnew was indicted for tax evasion and forced to resign.  His replacement was a colorless congressman from Grand Rapids called Gerald Ford.

What was Ford’s qualification for the job?  Well, he had served on the Warren Commission, which absolved the CIA of responsibility for President Kennedy’s murder.  Nixon was strong-armed into accepting Gerald Ford by Democrats in Congress.  “We gave Nixon no choice but Ford,” Speaker of the House Carl Albert later boasted.  Eight months later, Gerald Ford of the Warren Commission was the president of the United States.  See how that works?  So those are the facts, not speculation.  All of that actually happened.  None of it’s secret.  Most of it actually is on Wikipedia, but no mainstream news organization has ever told that story.  It’s so obvious, yet it’s intentionally ignored and as a result, permanent Washington remains in charge of our political system.

Unelected lifers in the federal agencies make the biggest decisions in American government and crush anyone who tries to rein them in and in the process, our democracy becomes a joke. Now, you may have noticed that the very first person in the Trump administration the agencies went after was Gen. Michael Flynn. Why Flynn? Because Mike Flynn was a career Army intel officer who ran the Defense Intelligence Agency. In other words, Mike Flynn knew exactly how the system worked, and as a result, he was capable of fighting back. Four days after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the FBI lured Mike Flynn into a meeting without his lawyer, concocted a series of fake crimes and forced him to resign.

So, that’s how things actually work in Washington.  Let’s stop lying about it.  Joe Biden, meanwhile, whooped like a hyena when the Justice Department destroyed Mike Flynn.  So, there is, we have to say, a certain perverse justice in watching something very similar happen to Joe Biden himself six years later.  Joe Biden does not deserve our sympathy.  He’s being shafted, but don’t weep for him, and yet, the rest of us do deserve a better system, an actual democracy.  When people nobody voted for run everything, you are not living in a free country.[2]

Can I attest to the accuracy of each and every fact and conclusion that Carlson has cited?  No, but they are close enough to what I know personally to be worth repeating here, and heeding.

Trump In 2024?

19 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Donald Trump has enemies galore—both foreign and domestic—some of whom would wish him dead.  Abraham Lincoln was killed by those who hated him; and the same was true of John F. Kennedy.  An assassin tried to kill Ronald Reagan; and it is not beyond the pale of reason to believe that an attempt might be made on Trump’s life.  After all, the FBI raided his home in Florida, while its Secret Service guards stood by and let it happen.[2]

Trump is the antithesis of everything that Joe Biden represents.  Biden embraces woke that is evil incarnate—beyond all reckoning—and a growing threat to our civilization.  Crime is unleashed; and it’s as though the lunatics are running the asylum.  Biden is corrupt and should be impeached and imprisoned, inter alia, having accumulated vast wealth illegally while being a public servant.  Trump was a businessman; and the attacks on him surely have dissuaded others in business from ever running for public offices.  Why expose their lives and families to nonstop scrutiny and vicious attacks?

Assuming Trump runs, he might pick former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as his running mate.[3]. Philosophically they seem to be in tune; and Pompeo might be a positive influence on Trump—at least in terms of losing weight and slimming down.  After all, having been attacked nonstop since he began running for the presidency, food can often be a psychological refuge for Trump.

Recent polling shows Trump crushing Florida’s fine Governor Ron DeSantis, who may have a very bright political future after a second Trump presidency ends.[4]  Biden’s mental acuity keeps declining—and “flat-lining”—and the scandals swirling about him may doom him before next year’s elections.  The economy alone may sink his little ship.[5]  The fate of our great country may turn on these developments, and how we and our friends and enemies respond to them.[6]

The Tragedy That Is America Today

14 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

God love them, many Americans are ignorant about politics, which has been true for generations.  Understandably they are focused on their day-to-day lives, and how to put food on their tables and a roof over their heads, and find schools that will educate their children.  Many have not moved far from where they were born and raised, and they have never traveled abroad.  But they have a gut and abiding sense about what is right and wrong.

Two tsunamis hit all of us: China’s Covid pandemic, and Brain Dead Joe Biden’s presidency.  Like whirlwinds, these two events turned things upside down.  Jobs were lost; businesses were shuttered; and lives were changed forever.  China has never paid reparations, much less in the trillions of dollars that are owed globally[2]; and waiting in the wings for Biden to croak are Willie Brown’s former ho Kamala Harris, and Nancy Pelosi’s California uber-Leftist relation Gavin Newsom.[3]

The Biden-Harris presidency has been a disaster of monumental proportions.  Our borders have been flung wide open, encouraging the cartels to bring China’s Fentanyl and other killer drugs into the country.[4]  Human trafficking has become the norm; and the tragedies have been unspeakable.[5]  There is nothing positive about the Biden-Harris presidency; and the hierarchy of the “progressive” Democrats know this better than anyone.[6]

Organized religion has been a threat to Biden, Pelosi and their ilk, who have masqueraded as devotees.  Even America’s smallest religions have been threatened; for example, as anti-Semitism has risen nationally and globally.  Yet, the sowers of evil will reap a whirlwind—or their just “rewards,” which are coming.  The pendulum swings, and it is moving now.

Why Are So Many Americans Oblivious To The Pervasive Evil That Is Upon Us, Or Cowed By It?

29 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

As expected, the Coronavirus has mutated and will kill even more globally: China’s gift to the world.[2]  There is mass censorship of free speech by public platforms such as Facebook and of course Elon Musk’s tragic Twitter.[3]  Woke madness seems to be everywhere in the United States, Canada and Europe, crippling such former democracies, and alienating them from their citizens.[4]  And targeted killings occur to silence potential truth-tellers.[5]

Once-trusted organs of the American government have been “weaponized” by the evil Left against anyone who would dare to oppose or even question them.[6]  Growing numbers of Americans are alienated from the election process, and believe it is “rigged” against them so why bother to vote.[7]  We have a mentally-challenged criminal as our President, with his possible successor being a disgrace at best, at a time in our history when the march toward another world war and chaos is frightening.[8]

We have a legal system that favors criminals over the police, abortions over life, and is populated by judges who distort the system at every turn.  Crime seems to be omnipresent; killer drugs such as Fentanyl take a staggering toll; and our police are shackled and ridiculed at a time when they are needed the most.[9]  Eco-Nazis have so distorted our lives that we are buying oil from our adversaries, when we were essentially energy-independent a short while ago.[10]

Madness and instability seem to reign, instead of order and rationality.[11]  Once-trusted groups such as the Boy Scouts and our churches are maligned at every turn, leaving vast numbers of Americans with a sense of disorder, despair and insecurity at a time when order and stability are needed the most.  Godlessness is promoted; and the “freaks of nature” are everywhere, distorting all that they touch—and that we hold dear.  It’s as if the inmates are running the asylum.

The United States is ridiculed if not hated by many around the world, yet our southern border is so porous that men, women and children are trying to come here from the countries of the world.  And having crossed the border, or having been brought here by human traffickers, they are often treated far better than the growing ranks of our homeless, who struggle to stay alive each and every day.[12]

Amidst so much seeming chaos and irrationality—heightened by the Coronavirus pandemic—Americans are divided like never before, except during our Civil War and in the wake of the Vietnam War.  Perhaps unrecognized and unanticipated in our body politics is that slim sliver of hope; namely, a faith in the future and trust in a Higher Power that is guiding us through the minefields and seeming insanity of the world in which we live.[13]

Woke Madness Reigns In California

24 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

California is a beautiful state in which some of us were born and raised—and have loved all of our lives, even when our journeys have taken us elsewhere.  Many of us attended its colleges, and worked there; and have traveled the state from its northern border with Oregon to Mexico in the south.

Years ago, we were charmed by its Spanish and Mexican heritages, traditions and cultures; and by the Chumash and other Indian tribes who lived and fished along its coast, and traveled inland to farm.  The lovely Mission San Antonio de Padua is an example of these historic roots.[2]

Today the state is polluted by woke ideology that is destroying it.  The latest example involves the banning of all gas and diesel truck fleets, which is patently absurd.[3]  Truckers are just recovering from the damaging effects of the Coronavirus pandemic on their work, followed by high fuel prices.  Yet, the totally-woke and despicable eco-Nazis want to hurt them even more.

Truck stops should be open, but they are closed on Highway 101 in Central California where they are needed most to give drivers much-needed rests while they are away from their homes and families.  And the height of woke madness is that a nuclear power plant along the coast was scheduled to be shut down, but it is now being given a new lease on life because it is considered essential to meet existing and future energy needs.[4]

With water being critical to the state’s agricultural and everyday needs, desalination plants have opened and closed, next to the Pacific Ocean, which constitutes more madness.[5]  And then there are the issues of crime and homelessness, which are rampant in the state.[6]  Ultimately the word “woke” seems to be inextricably linked to and synonymous with the word “wackos,” and correctly so.

The “Witch Hunters” Must Be Brought To Justice, Beginning With Evil-Incarnate Merrick Garland

18 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

In an article entitled, “‘Never mind’ on Mar-A-Lago; even more black marks for the FBI,” former Governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee—and the father of Arkansas’ Governor-elect Sarah Huckabee Sanders—has written:

After the FBI swooped in on Mar-A-Lago, the home of a former President, on August 8, 2022, in a “land, sea and air” early-morning invasion with helicopters and up to 30 armed agents, we Americans sat glued to our TVs listening to reporters recount the events of the day from outside on the street, our jaws on the floor.  We couldn’t believe what had taken place.

The raid had been choreographed like an action movie set in some far-off banana republic.  Nothing like this had happened before—or was likely even contemplated—in our country.  Even President Richard Nixon, who resigned from office in disgrace, never faced anything like this.

If you travel to Panama City (Panama, not Florida) and tour the nearby rainforest, one place you’ll drive fairly close to is the unassuming compound where former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega was incarcerated after being tried by courts in the U.S. and France.  Upon his return to Panama, he would be kept under close guard for the rest of his life, with the goal of making sure he never, ever tried to come to power again.

It occurs to me that this is what the truly Trump-deranged among us would like to do to President Trump.

But Noriega was a dictator—a real, ruthless dictator.  He suspended constitutional rights, closed newspapers and radio stations, drove political enemies into exile, fixed elections, laundered drug money, had adversaries killed and more.  When troops swarmed into Panama to neutralize the threat to freedom posed by him, it made sense to do that.

But in using force against our own former President, our DOJ was trying to make him appear to be a bad man, a presumed-guilty man, someone who was perhaps secretly plotting to take power and/or harm our nation.  “Wow, what did President Trump DO,” people wondered, “to justify something like THIS?  It must have been really bad!”  And in the days and weeks that followed, there were leaks by investigators about important classified documents, even dangerous nuclear secrets, being squirreled away at Mar-A-Lago (possibly to be sold to Russia!), even a picture of so-called classified documents lying on the floor.

But [these] claims were not substantiated.  The picture was staged by agents.  And at this point, it seems to have been much ado about nothing, or, at most, much ado about a paperwork dispute.  But, timed as it was in the months before the midterm elections, it was bound to have an effect on the political viability of those who supported Trump.

Now that the election is safely over, the real story of the raid is coming out, thanks in part to the WASHINGTON POST.  After reviewing the documents, they report, federal authorities see “no nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets.  Instead, the former President seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property… Trump repeatedly said the materials were his, not the government’s, often in profane terms,” their sources said.

Exactly—a paperwork dispute.

I have an idea for WAPO if they’d really like to earn a Pulitzer for their reporting on Trump.  Take a hard look at the FBI and DOJ in the style of real investigative journalists.  They break the stories, not you—if your sources do give you “bombshells” that hurt your political side, you typically wait till after elections are over to report them in mainstream media.  Otherwise, you just transcribe for the strategic leakers at the DOJ.

Trump tweeted this on Truth Social: “Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more.  Same sleazy people were involved.  Why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-A-Lago with our lawyers, or others, present.  Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them get even close—said ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT.’  Planting information anyone?  Reminds me of a Christopher Steele Dossier!”

Kyle Becker notes other revelations that are happening now that the election is over.  For example, the FBI is confirmed to have had numerous agents embedded within extremist groups in advance of the January 6 protest.  So they knew there were plans to create unrest—if they didn’t encourage these plans outright—yet, curiously, no extra security was provided for the rally, even though President Trump had offered 20,000 National Guard troops.

When Trump says the “same sleazy people” were involved, perhaps he’s referring in part to the just-retired FBI agent heading the DC field office who supervised the Gretchen Whitmer attempted-kidnapping case, the January 6 investigation and the Mar-A-Lago raid.

On Thursday, when FBI Director Chris Wray testified before a Senate committee, he found himself in the hot seat.  Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley told him it was “indefensible” that back in August he left a statutorily-required hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee to “catch a flight” (nonsense; he was flying on a private government plane) to vacation with his family in the Adirondacks.

Here’s the story at DAILY CALLER, but we noticed that none of the reports even mention this: Wray’s hearing happened to be on Thursday, August 4, just a few days away from the raid he was planning for the morning of August 8.  No wonder he was eager to get out of that chair and off to the Adirondacks!

House Republicans did have their press conference Thursday, with Kentucky Rep. James Comer and Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan announcing their committees were launching an investigation into President Biden’s foreign business ties to son Hunter, as revealed on Hunter’s abandoned laptop—which was hidden by the FBI during Trump’s impeachment and later dismissed as “Russian disinformation”—and also approximately 150 flagged financial transactions.  Citing whistleblowers, they said the President had been “chairman of the board” of the Biden family empire based on selling access to him when he was Vice President.  They claim to have found evidence of money laundering and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

“Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden’s business deals and is he compromised?  That’s our investigation,” Comer said, adding that they want to find out why he lied to the American people.  Specifically, he said, “We find evidence that Joe Biden and Hunter Biden were involved in a scheme to try to get China to buy liquified natural gas.  People are in outrage over China buying farmland in the Dakotas.  What about China trying to buy into our American energy industry?”

Here’s another black mark for the FBI: In a hearing with Wray last December, he was asked about the FBI’s use of Pegasus, the hacking tool that extracts information from cellphones.  Wray admitted that they’d bought a license for Pegasus, but not to USE it!  No, no.  This would be only for research and development, to find out how the bad guys would use it.

“But dozens of internal FBI documents and court records tell a different story,” THE NEW YORK TIMES reports.  FBI officials “made a push in 2020-2021 to deploy Pegasus in their own criminal investigations.”  It’s “unclear,” they say, whether the FBI planned to use it to spy on Americans.  But the NYT revealed in January that the FBI tested a similar tool, called Phantom, which is capable of hacking phones with U.S. numbers.

When a flurry of negative stories came out in 2021 about Pegasus, the FBI decided not to use it.  Still, documents show they were interested in using such spyware in the future.

Other than the way they speak approvingly of Wray for getting under Trump’s skin, the NYT has actually reported something here that I would recommend reading.

Legal analyst Andrew Napolitano is not buying what Wray was selling about this, and he says as much in his commentary on the FBI’s interest in Pegasus and Phantom and spying on Americans in violation of the Fourth Amendment.  He argues that the FBI is out of control and must be defunded and disbanded.  This is must-read.

Real investigations

Yesterday, House Republicans announced that there will now be real investigations of real crimes and scandals, like why the Afghanistan withdrawal was so tragically botched, what were the actual origins of the COVID-19 virus, and as Rep. James Comer put it, “the domestic and international business dealings of the Biden family and their associates to determine whether these activities compromise U.S. national security and President Biden’s ability to lead with impartiality.  The Biden family has a pattern of peddling access to the highest levels of government to enrich themselves to the detriment of U.S. interests.”  Soon-to-be House Oversight Committee Chairman Comer said, “We are going to make it very clear that this is now an investigation of President Biden.”  Which leads us to our..

Quote of the Day! From a Fox News TV report last night:

“Democrats are accusing Republicans of focusing too much on investigations and not enough on the big issues like the economy.”

Wow!  For those wondering how long it would take for the Democrats to do a complete 180, this came less than 24 hours after the AP grudgingly admitted that Republicans would take back the House.  The same Democrats who’ve been obsessed for two years with endlessly “investigating” January 6th while ignoring (or actively making worse) the problems afflicting working Americans, like record inflation.  I would add rampant crime, open borders, high gas prices and the threat of World War III, but they didn’t mention those because Democrats still have the power to make those worse.

I’ve written before about how somewhere in Washington, there’s a big, hidden switch.  Whenever power changes from one party to the other, someone throws that switch, and all the standards instantly reverse.  For instance, if Democrats take over from Republicans, homeless people immediately change from a humanitarian crisis caused by government cruelty to invisible people.[2]

The road ahead is clear.  The Republicans—and yes, Donald Trump—must clean up the colossal mess that Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Merrick Garland, Christopher Wray and their fellow Democrats have left.  And not a minute can be wasted.[3]

Lots Of American Voters Aren’t Wedded To Either Political Party, And May Boycott Both

17 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

I began as a Democrat in a devoutly-Republican, Southern California family, because of John F. Kennedy.  Indeed, I was in Los Angeles’ Coliseum when he gave his acceptance speech at the 1960 Democratic Convention, even though I was not old enough to vote.  Years later, I passed up a chance to return to a prestigious law firm in San Francisco because I thought service to my country was the right thing to do.[2]

I spent two years at the Pentagon as an Army officer assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency, and then pounded the corridors of Capitol Hill, trying to find a job, which I did.  It was heady work, with some of the political giants of the times.[3]  But there was and is a seedy side to American politics, which equaled or surpassed what happened in Hollywood (or Los Angeles) where I grew up.[4]

When I left the U.S. Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.[5]  Hence, I became an Independent and have been one ever since.  The Kennedy men, I learned, were evil—with essentially no redeeming qualities.  And the Democrats have rigged elections, including JFK’s in 1960.[6]

They have targeted their Republican opponents unmercifully, including Richard Nixon with Watergate, Ronald Reagan with Iran Contra, and Donald Trump—who has been attacked from Day One of his quest for political office.  And the Republicans are too stupid or inept to stop them.  We have Brain Dead Joe Biden in the White House, with Willie Brown’s former ho Kamala Harris waiting in the wings for him to croak, yet the Republicans seem unwilling or impotent to jettison them.[7]

What both political parties don’t appreciate, much less fathom fully, is that Americans don’t need either political party.  Lots of us stopped voting for Democrats years ago; and as we see the “vested interests” in the GOP targeting Trump, it is very easy for us to abstain from voting altogether.  The problem is that by defaulting, the Democrats become the victors, in perpetuity.  Therein lies the rub.  Another factor is that the Democrats might have gotten crushed except for young voters who were swayed by the abortion issue, and tragically have supported Infanticide.[8]

Meanwhile, Brain Dead Joe takes his pathetic “victory lap” globally, conceding that China owns Taiwan, just as he ceded Afghanistan to the Taliban.[9]  The GOP needs to dump Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy as leaders.  They are feckless at best.[10]  And never underestimate Donald Trump, nor discount the possibility that he will return to the presidency.  The always-despicable Democrats, the “vested interests” in the GOP, and their fellow travelers will try to convince you otherwise.[11]

“I also continue to support Trump. What the media has done to the man is criminal.”

At the very least, McCarthy must not stand in the way of investigations into the criminality of Joe and Hunter Biden, the AG Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray and others.

While McConnell may hang on for a while, he too must be dumped.

Dump Brain Dead Joe, McCarthy, Pelosi and their ilk, and Republicans like Karl Rove who gave us the Iraq War—in which more than 5,000 Americans died and many more were maimed for life, and staggering amounts of money were wasted for nothing—and never trust any of them.
