Obama’s newest cagey OBSTRUCTION on Susan Rice documents http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/obamas-newest-cagey-obstruction-on-susan-rice-documents/ http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/obamas-newest-cagey-obstruction-on-susan-rice-documents/#comments Tue, 20 Jun 2017 22:41:15 +0000 http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/?p=29418 Continue reading ]]> My, Barack Hussein Obama is being quite clever again, by moving documents relating to Susan Rice and her unmasking of Republicans to his library so that they may now be sealed and inaccessible.

From Breitbart.com:

Judicial Watch: Susan Rice ‘Unmasking’ Documents Moved from NSC to Obama Library

by Kristina Wong

The National Security Council cannot hand over records relating to former National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s surveillance of Americans, because they have been moved to the Obama presidential library and may be sealed for as many as five years, conservative watchdog Judicial Watch announced Monday.

Of course, the first thing one thinks is: surely nothing but innocent coincidence, yes?

The NSC informed Judicial Watch in a letter dated May 23 that materials related to Rice’s requests to know the identities of Americans swept up in surveillance of foreign targets, including any Trump campaign or transition officials, have been moved to the library.

The NSC’s Director of Access Management John Powers said in the letter:

Documents from the Obama administration have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library. You may send your request to the Obama Library. However, you should be aware that under the Presidential Records Act, Presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office.

Now if this isn’t perfect, I don’t know what is.

Judicial Watch earlier this year filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for those documents, including of communications between Rice and any intelligence community member or agency regarding any Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, the hacking of Democratic National Committee computers, or any suspected communications between Russia and Trump officials.

It began as I documented here when, in his last days, Mr Obama changed a few things.

And in his final days in office, Obama created the largest ever expansion of access to non-minimized NSA intercepts, creating a path for all U.S. intelligence to gain access to unmasked reports by changes encoded in a Reagan-era Executive Order 12333.

The government officials who could request or approve an exception to unmask a U.S. citizen’s identity has grown substantially. The NSA now has 20 executives who can approve the unmasking of American information inside intercepts, and the FBI has similar numbers.

And executives in 16 agencies — not just the FBI, CIA and NSA — have the right to request unmasked information.

Confirmed by the NYTimes.com, you see.

N.S.A. Gets More Latitude to Share Intercepted Communications

by Charlie Savage

WASHINGTON — In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.

The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.

The change means that far more officials will be searching through raw data. Essentially, the government is reducing the risk that the N.S.A. will fail to recognize that a piece of information would be valuable to another agency, but increasing the risk that officials will see private information about innocent people.

Why are these documents important? Because, if you recall, it was Susan Rice who was responsible for the unmasking of Trump and others in his campaign and staff via NSA intercepts.

Mike Cernovich wrote:

Susan Rice Requested Unmasking of Incoming Trump Administration Officials

Susan Rice, who served as the National Security Adviser under President Obama, has been identified as the official who requested unmasking of incoming Trump officials, Cernovich Media can exclusively report.

The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions. Each person must log her name before being granted access to them.

Upon learning of Rice’s actions, H. R. McMaster dispatched his close aide Derek Harvey to Capitol Hill to brief Chairman Nunes.

This reporter has been informed that Maggie Haberman has had this story about Susan Rice for at least 48 hours, and has chosen to sit on it in an effort to protect the reputation of former President Barack Obama.

The House Intelligence Committee has also subpoenaed the intelligence community for information on unmasking requests by Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Powers. Guess what? Crickets.

Isn’t this the perfect circular firing squad? And isn’t it wonderful when the Demorats get to so thoroughly pre-plan their obstruction via Barack Hussein Obama?

It is clear that the Demorats are working in concert with embedded deep state undermining civilian operators along with GOP EstabliHacks in order to create a cavernous and extensive coalition crossing aisles whose goal is to ultimately impeach and remove President Donald Trump.

You know. The person lawfully elected by the people of the United States of America. The guy with the dead orange cat on his head.

For the GOP, you have to ask yourselves why.

Perhaps Judge Pirro knows why.

Good points, all. Where are they indeed? Hiding, hoarding their gold on the table, their collective arms around it, ensuring their money and — mostly — their inherent power is not disturbed in the slightest. Oval office holders may come and go but Entrenched Power prevails. It must not be disturbed or distressed on either side of the aisle. Verboten.

Where were they in re James Comey? Conspicuously silent?

Former FBI Director James Comey testified just last week, Thursday, June 8th — how far and long ago that now seems — that Loretta Lynch compromised him. And you. And me. And the investigation into Hillary Clinton. Let us refresh.

We know now, because of this testimony, that Loretta Lynch herself in the Barack Obama administration attempted to obstruct justice and deflect or remove the serious status of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Minimization. Further, James Comey went along with it.

Let’s go back, shall we, to a certain tete-a-tete between Loretta Lynch and Jason Chaffetz in which Lorette Lynch decided to

“You refused to answer 74 times.”

“Your refusal to answer.”

Perhaps a wee bit-o-history of refusal and obfuscation? No, nothing like that.

Then let us away with Trey Gowdy.

Warte mal. 

Are you starting to witness something of a trend here?

A trend completely ignored, and purposely so, by the Demorats and the American Media Maggots and, to an extent, the EstabliHacks of the GOP, with a select few exceptions?

I have set my background. Now it is time to reveal more from Circa.com.

Comey got ‘steely silence’ after confronting Loretta Lynch about Clinton’s email probe

by John Solomon and Sara A. Carter

Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter.

During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last Thursday, Comey alluded to the exchange after publicly discussing an encounter with Lynch, where she ordered him not to refer to the criminal probe of Clinton’ handling of classified emails not as an “investigation” but rather as a “matter.” He suggested it smacked of political spin rather than the way professional law enforcement officers talk.

Buttery goodness? But wait, there’s more.

In multiple private sessions over the last few months, Comey has told lawmakers about a second, later confrontation with Lynch shortly before the email probe was shut down.

Really? That hadn’t been plastered near and far by the American Media Maggots. Why might that be?

Comey told lawmakers in the closed door session that he raised his concern with the attorney general that she had created a conflict of interest by meeting with Clinton’s husband, the former President Bill Clinton, on an airport tarmac while the investigation was ongoing.

During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.

At minimum a conflict of interest — the likes of which, truly, Comey had no interest considering his approval of Assistant FBI Director McCabe’s direct involvement with Demorat partisan politics on behalf of McCabe’s clearly partisan Demorat wife, Jill. Comey ruled the conflict wasn’t just regular cool, but that it was extra crispy cool. Nothing to see here. Move on. Dot org.

Comey said “the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office,” said one source who was briefed.

Bing. Done. Gone. Leave. Vacate.

Comey “took that interaction and the fact she had met with Bill Clinton as enough reason to decide he would not allow the Justice Department to decide the fate of the case and instead would go public” with his own assessment that the FBI could not prove Mrs. Clinton intended to violate the law when she transmitted classified information through her private email and therefore should not be criminally charged. Another source said the “tarmac meeting was the public excuse for not going to Lynch when all along there was other evidence that was more concerning to Comey.”

In other words, politics trumped the truth and the need for Comey to insert himself as something of a Knight In Shining Armor. A fantasy that had been brewing in his fetid, knurled, convoluted and twisted mind for years.

Are Senate Republicans are finally starting to get the message?

Senate Republicans Hope to Question Loretta Lynch on Conduct in Clinton Email Case

by Aaron Klein

NEW YORK — Senate Republicans are eying the possibility of seeking testimony from former Attorney General Loretta Lynch over possible wrongdoing with regard to the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

On Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, formally requesting that the committee probe any attempts to influence the FBI’s investigations under the Trump and Obama administrations.

There are three important issues that should logically require the testimony of Lynch.

One is Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting last June at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in which former President Bill Clinton, the husband of the FBI’s main subject in a criminal probe — Hillary’s email case — boarded the attorney general’s plane and reportedly stayed there for about thirty minutes for a private chat.

The second concern is Lynch’s reported directive for then-FBI Director James Comey to publically refer to the FBI’s criminal investigation into Clinton’s email as a “matter” instead of an investigation or a criminal probe. The language matched the specific rhetoric used at the time by Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, which referred to the criminal investigation as a “matter.”

The third issue relates to testimony and questions surrounding reports claiming that Comey was in possession of a document purportedly indicating that Lynch would ensure the Clinton email probe didn’t go too far.

Even the politically-biased James Comey — ex FBI Director, thank God —  said the “Justice Department leadership could not credibly complete the investigation and declined prosecution without grievous damage to the American people’s confidence in the — in the justice system.”

Judge Andrew Napolitano rightly asks: where are we now?

The Demorats are making these times all about process, as I say, and not about governing. Republicans are buying into it. Republicans appear to willingly be ceding the power they truly possess.

Pendulum..

The U.S. Navy says the USS Fitzgerald suffered damage below the water line on its starboard side after it collided with the Philippine-flagged merchant ship. (Iori Sagisawa/Kyodo News via AP)

First, note the photographs above. You can see the damage to the navy destroyer, USS Fitzgerald, is significant whilst the damage to the container ship ACX Crystal is minor. These two photographs provide a massive amount of information to an attentive observer regarding the tragedy, with only one conclusion. The OOD/Captain of the USS Fitzgerald is directly responsible for the loss of those seven sailors and will likely face a courts martial. In my opinion criminal charges should be considered.

First, the story from AP.org:

US, JAPAN SEARCH FOR 7 NAVY SAILORS, PUZZLE OVER SHIP CRASH

BY EUGENE HOSHIKO AND KOJI UEDA

YOKOSUKA, Japan (AP) — U.S. and Japanese vessels and aircraft searched Saturday for seven American sailors who were missing after their Navy destroyer collided before dawn with a container ship four times its size off the coast of Japan.

The USS Fitzgerald was back at its home port in Yokosuka Naval Base south of Tokyo by sunset Saturday, its crew lined up on deck. The Philippine-flagged container ship was berthed at Tokyo’s Oi wharf, where officials began questioning crew members about the cause of the nighttime crash.

After helping stabilize the USS Fitzgerald, the destroyer USS Dewey joined other American and Japanese vessels and aircraft in the search for the missing sailors.

At least three other Navy sailors were injured in the collision.

Now, some damning facts.

Examining the photographs, you can see major damage to the USS Fitzgerald’s starboard side, almost amidships and directly under the bridge. The corresponding damage to the ACX Crystal is at the port bow where there is a remarkable mismatch in deck height.

That in and of itself tells me that the USS Fitzgerald turned across the path of the container ship, the container ship not at a 90-degree angle but at an obtuse angle to the USS Fitzgerald. That tells me avoidance was likely under way but initiated too late by the naval vessel.

Absent war or other factors it would be the primary duty of the smaller vessel, the USS Fitzgerald, to avoid collision. Because of navigational issues on the part of the container ship ACX Crystal with regard to handling characteristics — that is to say, its inability to stop or maneuver in any sort of rapid or noteworthy manner involving distance or time — the maritime “rules of the road” provide favor to the container ship. Particularly damning is this.

Conditions were clear at the time of the collision, though Yutaka Saito of the coast guard said the area is particularly busy with sea traffic.

That information becomes critical when one reads this paragraph.

The U.S. 7th Fleet said in a statement that the crash damaged two berthing spaces, a machinery room and the radio room. Most of the more than 200 sailors aboard would have been asleep in their berths at the time of the pre-dawn crash.

The ACX Crystal possesses what is termed a “bulbous bow” under the waterline, which exists to smooth the flow of water around the hull and minimize drag thus yielding a slightly greater speed, range, stability in rougher weather and fuel efficiency. I posit it’s not impossible that the bulbous bow of the ACX Crystal may have impacted the USS Fitzgerald under the waterline and directly into the berthing areas. I submit the missing sailors may have been crushed inside the naval ship and/or sucked directly out to sea from the resulting impact.

The USS Fitzgerald’s captain, Cmdr. Bryce Benson, was airlifted early Saturday to the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka and was in stable condition with a head injury, the Navy said. Two other crew members suffered cuts and bruises and were evacuated. It was unclear how many others may have been hurt.

This suggests to me Captain Benson was on the bridge and in full charge of the navy ship and not an OOD or Officer of the Deck. It makes me wonder why the captain was on the bridge that early in the morning (2:30 AM local time) unless he was awakened by personnel due to calamitous and emergent conditions.

Some very important comparisons. The ACX Crystal is a Phillipines-flagged cargo container vessel built in 2008, working for the Japanese NYK Line. It is a 29,060 ton ship with a dead weight tonnage of 39,565 tons. It is 730 feet long with a capacity of 2,858 containers though at the time of collision it was carrying 1,080 containers. Maximum speed is 25 knots or 28 mph. In such a high traffic area the ship was likely not steaming at such a speed as the captain would be aware of its inherent handling deficiencies in such conditions. MarineTraffic.com indicates the ship had been traveling at between 16 and 18 knots. There were no injuries whatsoever on the ACX Crystal, which also says much about the overall incident and nature of ship dynamics.

In contrast, the USS Fitzgerald (DDG-62) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer launched in 1994 with a full displacement of 9,000 tons at a length of 505 feet, with a maximum speed greater than 30 knots, or 34 mph. It has the AN/SPY-1D 3D Radar, AN/SPS-67 (V)2 Surface Search Radar or AN/SPS-73(V)12 Surface Search Radar system on board. Suffice to say these are more sophisticated systems than those of a merchant vessel.

Some amateur marine enthusiasts are indicating the ACX Crystal may have deviated from its original course twice.

Still and all, as per the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, the onus for avoidance was on the USS Fitzgerald due to a wide variety of factors to include ability to avoid, vessel dynamics and ship handling.

The situation immediately brings to my mind the 2001 collision between the Japanese fishing training boat Ehime Maru and the USS Greeneville, a Los Angeles-class attack submarine, when the sub surfaced underneath the boat during an emergency ballast blow surfacing maneuver demonstration for some VIP civilians on board. In all, nine civilian crew members were killed on the Ehime Maru, including four high school students.

The captain and applicable crew of the USS Greeneville received non-judicial punishment.

UPDATED INFORMATION ON SUNDAY:

Two points: first, from the NavyTimes.com:

Navy search and rescue crews have discovered the bodies of seven missing sailors from the destroyer Fitzgerald in flooded berthing compartments, two defense officials confirmed to Navy Times.

Second, from the WSJ.com:

In a period of seconds, a 29,000 ton cargo ship loaded with containers plowed into its right side, crushing a large section of the destroyer’s main structure, including the captain’s cabin and sleeping quarters for 116 sailors below the waterline. Seawater flooded in through a large gash.

As the crew scrambled to save themselves and the ship, seven sailors didn’t make it out of the berthing area. Their bodies were recovered by divers after the ship crawled to the port of Yokosuka.

Badly injured, the captain, Bryce Benson, escaped from his cabin. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital where he was receiving emergency treatment on Sunday before being questioned.

This now clearly indicates the sailors were trapped or crushed and drowned down in their berths below the waterline, and would also account for the injuries to the captain as his cabin was specifically affected as well. Therefore we now know that another officer, not the captain, was OOD during the collision at night.

I suggest this will become a criminal proceeding. I cannot think of a ready excuse for a situation such as this occurring in the modern US Navy absent terrible negligence.

Open season on GOP, Conservatives, Trump http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/open-season-on-gop-conservatives-trump/ http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/open-season-on-gop-conservatives-trump/#comments Thu, 15 Jun 2017 23:43:14 +0000 http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/?p=29288 Continue reading ]]> After all, the former US Attorney General whilst in office, Loretta Lynch, said that blood had to be spilled.

And so it was on Wednesday, June 14th, when a man who quite publicly, vocally and vehemently said “it’s time to destroy Trump & Co.” decided to spill blood.

Filled with the vigor of the Righteous Left and emboldened by recent overt acts and displays of violence against Conservatives, Trump and the GOP, a man decided he was going to kill as many Republicans as possible on a baseball field.

From the LATimes.com:

House majority whip, several others, shot at congressional baseball practice

by David Laufer and Michael Memoli

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) was shot at a Republican congressional baseball practice Wednesday morning by a gunman who appeared to have targeted members of Congress.

Police in Alexandria, Va., located just outside of Washington, D.C., said they were investigating a “multiple shooting” and a suspect was in custody. Five wounded people were being taken to area hospitals for treatment, the police said.

Two police officers and two or three congressional staff members were among the wounded, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said on CNN.

The shooter “was going after elected officials,” Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) told CNN from the scene of the shooting.  The location of the congressional practice session, in preparation for an annual charity baseball game, was well known in the area, he noted.

Senator Jeff Flake from Arizona, present at the time of the shooting, had this description.

Scalise, 51, the third-ranking Republican in the House, was standing on second base, fielding balls during batting practice when the shooting began, Flake said.

Reuters writes today about the condition, today, of Steve Scalise.

U.S. congressman undergoes another operation after shooting

by Susan Cornwell and David Morgan

U.S. Representative Steve Scalise underwent a third operation on Thursday, a day after suffering serious wounds when a man who had expressed anger toward President Donald Trump opened fire on Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice, a source familiar with his condition said.

Scalise, a congressman from Louisiana who is the No. 3 House Republican, suffered injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding after being shot in the left hip on a baseball field in Alexandria where he and other lawmakers were practicing for a charity baseball game.

Scalise, 51, and three others were wounded when a man identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, from the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois opened fire on the lawmakers. The others wounded were a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist.

The U.S. Capitol Police said Hodgkinson used a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62-caliber rifle in the shooting, and traces run by investigators showed he evidently acquired the weapons legally.

“Both were purchased by the shooter from federal firearms licensees,” the Capitol Police said in a statement. “We currently have no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful.”

Hodgkinson, who had a history of posting angry messages against Trump and other Republicans on social media, died after being wounded by police.

We also find this about the shooter, from Breitbart.com:

Report: James T. Hodgkinson, Shooting Suspect, Belonged to ‘Terminate the Republican Party’ Facebook Group

by Joel B. Pollak

James T. Hodgkinson, the suspect in the shooting attack on a Republican baseball practice on Wednesday morning, was reportedly a member of a group called “Terminate the Republican Party.”

Hodgkinson wounded four, including House Majority Whip Steve Scales (R-LA), before succumbing to his injuries sustained in gunfire exchanges with police.

The Belleville News-Democrat, a newspaper in Hodgkinson’s former hometown of Belleville, Illinois, reports:

 The shooter who was killed during gunfire at practice for a congressional baseball game Wednesday morning was from Belleville.

The shooter was James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, who belonged to a number of anti-Republican groups, including one called “Terminate the Republican Party.”

The Facebook group reportedly celebrated the killing.

This should, in retrospect, come as no shock to those persons who are thinking clearly and have been cognizant of their surroundings for roughly the past year. That is to say, political violence has quite primarily been the result of Leftist elements, both organized en masse and singly such as this event.

The response on the Left has consisted of the same old: stop guns stop guns too many guns. Then came the wildly-inflated statistics, from Virginia Governor Terry Macauliffe.

Terry McAuliffe: ‘We Lose 93 Million Americans a Day to Gun Violence’

by AWR Hawkins

While speaking to reporters about the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) said now is not the time to talk gun control but we must admit “we lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence.”

Then there was this loving, tolerant and caring response on Twitter by the Huffington Post’s Jesse Benn directly following the shooting. From GotNews.com:

BREAKING: @HuffPost Contributor @JesseBenn Endorses Shooting of House Majority Whip @SteveScalise

by Charles C. Johnson

A Huffington Post contributor endorsed the severe wounding of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise at the hands of radicalized, Rachel Maddow-loving, Bernie Sanders-supporting shooter, James T. Hodgkinson.

There was also this, an email sent to Republican Claudia Tenney directly after the shooting of Scalise, from TheHill.com:

GOP rep. received threatening email with subject line ‘One down, 216 to go…’ after lawmaker shooting

by Olivia Beavers

The office of Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) received a threatening email with the subject line “One down, 216 to go…,” shortly after a shooter opened fire on GOP lawmakers who were at a congressional baseball practice, according to her office.

“Did you NOT expect this? When you take away ordinary peoples very lives in order to pay off the wealthiest among us, your own lives are forfeit. Certainly, your souls and morality were lost long before. Good riddance,” the email said.

Let us remember that Demorats have already called for violence and “blood in the streets.”

MIKA BRZEZINSKI, CO-HOST “MORNING JOE”:

 

“So, broad question about the future of the Democratic Party, especially given your firsthand experience with what we’ve all been through. There’s so much going on here that we clearly see, you know, places where you — we can criticize what the administration is doing, but how does the party rebuild? How do you prevent overreach in a situation like this? How do you prevent a continuation of the bubble in a situation like this, and how does the party reclaim its reach across the country while fighting these battles?”

SEN. TIM KAINE (D-VA):

“…So, the way we get outside the bubble is we take advantage of this tremendous public outcry against the administration. What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there’s the momentum to be able to do this. And we’re not afraid of the popular outcry, we’re energized by it and that’s going to help us do our job and do it better.”

What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there’s the momentum to be able to do this. And we’re not afraid of the popular outcry, we’re energized by it and that’s going to help us do our job and do it better.

In reference to that, the DailyKos wrote: “VA-Sen: Tim Kaine (D) Calls For “Fight In The Streets” Against Trump, So Lets Push Him To Fight”.

What about the calm, enlightened, cooperative, unifying and tolerant speech of DNC Chair Tom Perez?

There are, naturally, following threats to the families of Republicans, from Politico.com:

‘This is how we’re going to kill your wife’

Police blanket a town hall by GOP Rep. Tom Garrett after a series of ‘credible’ threats.

by Kyle Cheney

MONETA, Va. — “This is how we’re going to kill your wife.”

That’s the message Rep. Tom Garrett (R-Va.) said he received in a series of recent threats that targeted him, his family and even, at one point, his dog. And it’s the reason, he said, that his town hall here in this sleepy Virginia community on Tuesday night was ringed by law enforcement.

When Garrett took the stage at Eastlake Community Church, the walls in the 300-seat room were lined with security — some uniformed and some in plainclothes. The presence was noticeable all night, as Garrett aides enforced rules to keep audience members from disrupting the event.

Though the town hall proceeded without significant incident — one woman was removed by police for repeated disruptions — security personnel made their presence felt, approaching hecklers throughout the evening and standing watch at all entrances and exits. The high security presence, Garrett said later, was the result of threats that Capitol Police, state police and intelligence officials “have deemed to be credible and real.”

This is not just an emerging trend, it is a pattern, as recognized by Newt Gingrich.

Tucker Carlson speaks to Mark Steyn regarding the violence and hate/labeling rhetoric of the Leftists.

Concurrently, this is the most cogent and logical thing I’ve heard issue from Paul Ryan’s mouth in close to a year.

Will Ryan come to understand how his prior pablum, conciliatory, bipartisan and compromising speech has led to this current state? Unlikely. The GOP gives, the Demorats take and spew venom and violence.

Completely unreasonable speech from the Left also accompanies this blather, from Breitbart.com:

Rep. Barbara Lee: ‘I Don’t Agree with States’ Rights’ Because Trump Does

by Penny Starr

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) said on Tuesday that she does not agree with states’ rights because President Donald Trump believes in restoring states’ authority on a wide range of issues, including education and health care insurance markets.

Lee made the remarks at the left-wing Center for American Progress in Washington, DC, where she referenced states rights as it applies to Trump’s decision this month to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate change agreement, a move she claims would hurt the U.S. economy.

No states rights. Simply to be a contrarian no matter the idiocy or illegality.

You know, call me wacky, but this discourse from the Left appears to clearly contain violent language to me. And not just from the Political Left. From the so-called “Celebrity Left” as well. Let’s examine this issue. Let’s look at some examples.

1. Shakespeare in the Park Stabs ‘Trump’ to Death in Performance of ‘Julius Caesar’
New York City’s Public Theater staged a production of Julius Caesar during its 2017 summer program, but with a twist on the classic play — Caesar looked just like Donald Trump, with a business suit and tie and a familiar blond hair-do. As happens in the play, the Trump-like Caesar is eventually brutally stabbed to death by his associates in the Senate.

The character’s similarity to Trump sparked outrage, and sponsors Bank of America and Delta Air Lines pulled their funding from the theater.

2. Kathy Griffin Holds President Trump’s Severed Head
Please check my post here about that event, where I covered the issue in massive detail.

3. Robert De Niro: “I’d Like to Punch Him in the Face”
The Oscar-winning actor participated in a voter registration PSA during the 2016 presidential race, but was filmed going off on Trump in a monologue during an outtake.

“He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, he’s a bullshit artist, a mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes,” the 73-year-old Godfather star said in the clip.

“He’s an embarrassment to this country,” he added. “He talks [about] how he wants to punch people in the face. I’d like to punch him in the face.”

4David Simon: “Pick Up a Goddamn Brick” if Trump Fires Robert Mueller
The creator of the HBO crime drama The Wire reacted to rumors that the president had considered firing the special counsel appointed to oversee the Russia investigation, Robert Mueller, by suggesting that Americans “pick up a goddamn brick” if the president followed through.

“If Donald Trump fires Robert Mueller and is allowed to do so, pick up a goddamn brick. That’s all that’s left to you,” Simon tweeted June 12.

The writer-producer later denied his tweet was an incitement to violence.

5. Joss Whedon: “I Want a Rhino to Fuck Paul Ryan to Death”
Bit of an oxymoron, that one. The 52-year-old Avengers director — who released a star-studded PSA in support of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 race — took to Twitter in January to wish an untimely and unfortunate end to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI).

“Violence solves nothing. I want a rhino to fuck @SpeakerRyan to death with its horn because it’s FUNNY, not because he’s a #GOPmurderbro,” Whedon tweeted.

Shortly after the November 8 election, the director tweeted that Trump “CANNOT be allowed a term in office.”

I could go on and on and on with comments made by Cher, Micky Rourke, Lea DeLaria, rappers Snoop Dog, Everlast and YG, Marilyn Manson, Larry Wilmore, Stephen Colbert, Sarah Silverman, Ashley Judd, Madonna, et al.

Then there’s everyone else, as I illustrated in detail via my November 12th blog post wherein Leftists of all stripes were openly calling for Trump’s assassination on social media.

An interesting point about that post. Persons have asked me, “BZ, why not just copy those Tweets and paste them into your article instead of making photos of each one?” Easy answer: because I’ve had many, many Tweets disappear into the ozone. When I make a JPEG out of a Tweet, they are immured forever.

Paul Joseph Watson makes a nice overall summary here.

The Left makes hyperbolic attacks because they cannot win on fact-based issues. Leftists “do not want to hear thoughtful disagreement.” They do not wish to hear any disagreement at all.

This just in, from Fox59.com:

Several shots fired at truck flying ‘Make America Great Again’ flag on I-465

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indiana State Police say shots were fired at a truck carrying a “Make America Great Again” flag and an American flag on eastbound I-465 Tuesday.

Officers believe the shots were fired from a newer white 4-door Chevrolet Malibu with a Louisiana plate near Emerson Avenue around 4 p.m.

The victim and a witness informed police that the Malibu pulled up next to the pickup truck, a passenger held a handgun out of the window and then a male fired several shots.

I am afraid, folks, that this is just the beginning.

People are talking about some sort of civil war. I’d rather call it a societal insurrection, societal chaos because, at this point, I have no idea what form it will take.

But it is coming. And it will be unpleasant.

“I AM PUSHBACK.”

Comey’s Theater of the Absurd http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/comeys-theater-of-the-absurd/ http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/comeys-theater-of-the-absurd/#comments Wed, 14 Jun 2017 00:34:37 +0000 http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/?p=29250 Continue reading ]]> Because, after all, James Brien Comey is the victim here.

Last Thursday, June 8th, a potentially great day for waterholes all over DC, former FBI Director James Comey appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee for a little over three hours. As it turns out, air was let out of many a Demorat sail. To ask the Demorats themselves it was nothing more than confirmation of a clear impeachment for President Donald Trump.

Except that there will not be an impeachment from this and there will not be “obstruction” charges from this.

Full transcript and video is here. Initial highlights from Comey are below, as per CBS news.

We’ll be sifting through Comey’s statements, but first, this unemphasized portion of the testimony from Senator Marco Rubio.

Make no mistake. For weeks Leftists and Demorats waited breathlessly for the triumphant return of James Comey, the man they knew would skewer Donald John Trump in public and finally provide damning evidence that he was linked inexorably to Russia and, further, directly into the office of Vladimir Putin. They would find Trump’s monogrammed coffee cup in Putin’s office, no less, along with Trump’s gilt-edged chair adjacent that of ol’ Vlad.

There were countdown clocks. There was baited breath — herring, likely — on the side of the Demorats, Leftists, Never Trumpers and RINOs such as John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Paul Ryan. Bars were packed. Drinks were sold. Chairs were occupied. Lines were formed. This would be spectacular Kabuki Theater in which jaded strumpets would put on their painted political masks fraught with feathers, finery, frippery and foppishness.

But it transitioned from Kabuki Theater to Theater of the Absurd. The Leftists and Demorats were indeed “Waiting For Comey.”

“Let the steamrollering commence!” shouted the Demorats and Leftists from the highest mountaintops to the lowest dungeons in the most marked of dudgeon.

Except that, well, there was a bit of doddering disappointment. One of my favorite hosts, Tucker Carlson, stated on the matter:

The other problem came the very day before Comey was to testify on Wednesday, June 7th, when Mr Comey released a copy of his opening statement which, dammit, punctured the Hope Balloon of Leftists and Demorats everywhere. Comey revealed there was no open investigation of Donald Trump. He also revealed, as Trump stated in a Tweet, that Comey had told Trump three separate times that he was not under investigation.

Dammit, Jim. Shoulders sagged throughout the nation. These two points have been rapidly and not-so-shockingly glossed-over by our loving American Media Maggots. They ended up being a glaring loser following Comey’s testimony.

Well, the Demorats and Leftists emphasized, there’s certainly more buttery goodness yet to come from Comey’s testimony, yes? Collusion? Obstruction? Impeachment? Of course, they cried in unison.

More was in fact to come, however. More that they hadn’t anticipated. More that didn’t place either Comey or former Attorney General Loretta Lynch in a favorable light.

Again, it turns out that James Comey was himself a leaker — to a friend of his named Daniel Richman. Purposely. So that he could force a special investigator — his good friend Robert Mueller — into the Trump/Russia issue. Deed accomplished. Thanks to Comey’s leaking. Precisely the thing he was allegedly fighting whilst FBI director.

But wait. Did James Comey himself violate any laws by leaking? Perhaps so. I might refer one to this United States Code, to begin.

18 USC 641

Whoever embezzles, steals, purloins or knowingly converts to his use or the use of another, or without authority, sells, conveys or disposes of any record, voucher, money or thing of value of the United States or of any department or agency thereof, or any property made or being made under contract for the United States or any department or agency thereof shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

Newt Gingrich had this to say about Comey’s leaks and their intent.

If James Comey has not yet acquired competent counsel, I recommend he do so quickly.

Rand Paul weighs in on Comey’s leaks.

Leftist attorney Alan Dershowitz also weighed in on the Comey leaking issue. His insight is particularly damning considering the background of Mr Dershowitz.

James Comey leaked his own memos to a third party, who then leaked them to the American Media Maggots. He also carried corrupt water for Lynch and Obama as he specifically stated in the hearing. He said the American Maggots got it “dead wrong” and then acquiesced to Lynch’s insistence that he called Clinton’s investigation a “matter,” what he termed a “euphemism.”

Loretta Lynch may have now, by this, been placed into the gunsights of her own wonderful little investigation, as she well should be.

Another issue recently emerged regarding the probity of James Comey. From Lifezette.com:

Fmr. FBI Supervisor: Comey Likely Behind Three Anonymous Stories

by Brendan Kirby

Self-described defender of fired FBI director says he is ‘struck and troubled’ by leaks

President Donald Trump is not the only one upset that former FBI Director James Comey used a friend to place an anonymously sourced story in The New York Times.

James Gagliano said, “I was struck and troubled last Thursday when I watched the two or three hours that he testified in front of the Senate Intel Committee, and the part that bothered me the most was the admission about the leak and the way that it happened,” he said. “It wasn’t even a situation where the director went to a New York Times reporter. He actually gave it to a surrogate, a memo.”

Further, he stated.

Gagliano said it was the third of three incidents where it appears Comey anonymously placed stories in the press.

The first occurred in March when reports appeared that Comey was enraged that Trump had tweeted a suggestion that wiretaps may have been placed at Trump Tower in New York. The second occurred when news outlets reported that Trump had demanded a pledge of loyalty from Comey.

“I hate to say it, but I think those three stories probably originated from the FBI director,” he said.

Even — gulp — MSNBC’s Chris Matthews admits that shite might be coming apart.

Let us remember that NSA Director Mike Rogers stated he never felt pressured by Trump or his administration.

We all know what I think of James Comey. Last year, as you can see above, I created the graphic to express my thoughts. James Comey lied to Congress, he lied to me, to you, to the American Taxpayer. He became the Political Butt Boy of the Demorats, in particular Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Loretta Lynch. He carried their water when demanded and did so willingly under the false guise of “independence.” Comey was as independent as your average cow. He could easily have referred Hillary Clinton, for example, to the DOJ for prosecution under these statutes:

  • 18 USC 793(f)
    Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information.
  • 44 USC 3101
    Records management by agency heads.
  • 18 USC 1924
    Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or materials.
  • 18 USC 2071
    Concealment, removal or mutilation generally.
  • 18 USC 1001
    Statements or entries generally (false).

Just to start.

James Brien Comey dishonored his law enforcement oath, lied under oath, portrayed himself and the FBI as helpless in the face of corruption, crimes and obstruction. He was an embarrassment to the FBI itself, to the Department of Justice and to all of law enforcement in general. He made extremely poor decisions based but upon politics and continuously placed himself in the limelight for naught but the embellishment of his own persona. He crafted his decisions in a terribly flawed manner and seemed to consider most everything but the actual laws he himself was tasked to obey. His own agency failed to follow the law in terms of reporting. His own agency destroyed evidence.

President Trump made a number of serious mistakes with regard to James Comey. I wrote back in 2016 that, because of the clearly political decisions Comey made, Donald Trump need to immediately fire James Comey. Comey’s waffling, indecision and poor decisions stemmed from politics and personal aggrandizement. James Comey should have been removed from the FBI Directorship on January 20th.

I believe Trump thought he might be able to work with Comey once he established some kind of working relationship. He provided Comey with a chance. That decision came back to bite Trump in the arse.

James Comey, sadly, was a terrible thorn in the Trump administration which could have been avoided had a different path been chosen.

Trump’s failure to remove Comey immediately provided political fodder for Demorats and Leftists nationally and helped to continue their anti-Trump narrative. It was a serious mistake to have kept James Comey in office.

Decisions, as well as elections, have consequences.
