Trump Russia Probe is Now All About Israel

 

We know what many are shaking their heads asking, ‘Really BTC, not everything is about Israel.’ Well, true, but let’s dive down this rabbit hole and see where it leads us. The reporting we saw came from an article titled Does Mueller have an Israel problem? Quoting from the initial paragraph, it states the following;

According to The Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has exhibited a “disturbing pattern” of suspicion directed against Israel over the years – which continues to this day.

Ominous start, but why not explore the remainder and then all make up our minds. Looking at Jordan Schachtel’s article in Conservative Review titled “Robert Mueller’s Israel Problem,” we read in his first paragraph,

As the Mueller probe drags along into year two of its supposed investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, a disturbing pattern has emerged. The special counsel has become obsessed with the state of Israel. The former FBI director is deeply suspicious, to the point of total paranoia, that there is a grand conspiracy involving the Trump campaign and transition officials as potential agents for the Israelis.

Is this starting to get a little more interesting yet? Well, we also went through a number of the Daily Caller articles where we finally found the source for the initial intrigue where presumably George Papadopoulos plead guilty to lesser charges in order to avoid the threat from Mueller that he would prosecute him as an Israeli spy. That source was presumably George Papadopoulos’ wife, Simona Mangiante. While looking at the Daily Caller articles on the Mueller Probe, and they apparently are obsessed with this probe, we found this little jewel,

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is looking into White House adviser Jared Kushner’s contacts with Israeli officials in the days leading up to the election.

 

Eventually, running all of this backwards far enough and we find the Wall Street Journal article, “Special Counsel Mueller Probes Jared Kushner’s Contacts With Foreign Leaders” where our suspicions were finally verified on what the entire Mueller Russia Probe is all about, the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 condemning all Israeli settlement activity beyond the Green Line (the 1949 Armistice Line) including East Jerusalem and everything that entails claiming it constitutes a “flagrant violation” of international law and has “no legal validity”. It demands that Israel stop such activity and fulfill its obligations as an occupying power under the Fourth Geneva Convention. We all remember the claims that President Obama had absolutely no part in the authoring of this resolution, and we agree as it was entirely written in Tehran and was last swipe at Bibi Netanyahu and a conjoined effort by the Mullahs of Iran and President Obama probably with Valerie Jarrett acting as the go-between. So, one last quote from Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel,

The special counsel has become obsessed with the state of Israel. The former FBI director is deeply suspicious, to the point of total paranoia, that there is a grand conspiracy involving the Trump campaign and transition officials as potential agents for the Israelis.

Now we can continue with the rest of this now that we have found that kernel of reality, which binds it all together. Mueller, who is a close friend of President Obama and was hand picked by the Deep State at the Justice Department with high recommendations from then FBI Director James Comey was chosen to lead this expedition as revenge for President Obama on President Trump because Trump had the audacity to make an attempt to thwart President Obama’s United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 with which he was going to show those upstart Israelis who really holds the power. Can one really believe this entire mess has been a personal vendetta also joined into with the Clinton’s as Trump had just bested Hillary Clinton in an election which was supposed to coronate her as the heir to the throne. One can only be tempted to substitute these characters into the series “Game of Thrones” and debate who is going to have their head chopped off next. Just to set things straight, Mueller would be the Ice King’s dragon sent forth to destroy the normal with the Ice King and the second in command being Obama and Hillary and the Ice Wall was the Constitution of the United States, that which protects individuals from political vendettas. Now back to our regularly scheduled article.

 

We have Papadopoulos pleading guilty to lesser charges after Mueller, the Great Inquisitor, threatened him with prosecution as an Israeli spy. Papadopoulos knows there is virtually no evidence which would link him with being an Israeli spy, but also knows that there are many people out for blood in this matter and he did not desire any of it being his. He probably thought it is better to require a Band-Aid than surgery to treat the wounds he was going to receive. So, he pleads guilty, turns evidence as to whatever Mueller demands and walks away a few months later with all his parts in order. We understand completely, when choosing between a cement truck and a tricycle, you pick being run into by the tricycle over run over by the cement truck. We now know how they got the presumed goods from Papadopoulos to go after General Michael Flynn with misleading the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador about a UN anti-Israel resolution in December of 2016. This is an easy trap to set; you have Papadopoulos swear in a deposition that he heard General Michael Flynn say something simple. Then you have James Comey claim in his deposition that General Michael Flynn also said the same something simple. Both agree that what Flynn stated to the FBI was not the actual truth and bingo, two against one. Now you have General Michael Flynn caught in the Mueller bear trap with the intent of turning him against President Trump and then you have impeachment proceedings to remove Trump, or better yet, conspiracy to alter the outcome of an election to take to the Supreme Court in order to overturn the election results because there was tampering with the vote and really Hillary Clinton won the election. That would really be selected, not elected, the chant we heard back during George W. Bush’s first term in office after the Florida debacle.

 

But there is still the matter of Barack Obama getting his revenge on Trump for attempting to get Russian President Putin to have his United Nations Ambassador veto President Obama’s United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 against Israel. Well, it failed anyway probably because President Putin, like President Obama, is allied with Iran and as they wrote the resolution, or helped possibly, he had to back his important Syrian ally. What is so very interesting is what has happened since. President Putin was following what then President Obama desired probably figuring that Trump would be a one-term President and a complete fiasco and failure having no influence or power. President Obama had all the signs of power and was the safer bet. Putin likely wishes for a do-over as President Trump has proven to be far more than an empty suit. Nowhere has this been more evident than concerning Israel with the official recognition by President Trump that the United States sees Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the embassy to Jerusalem with great alacrity. That, in and of itself, has all but cancelled President Obama’s Resolution 2334. Yes, we know that President Trump gave lip-service to the moving of the embassy has nothing to do with the final borders the two sides might agree to in the end. With all that has happened in the past year, it has become obvious that it has been the Palestinian Authority which has prevented any steps towards peace to even those who have been asleep for the past fifty years.

 

Further, Mueller, as part of his pursuing charges against President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner’s part in the attempts to shoot down President Obama’s United Nations Resolution 2334, sent an investigatory team to Israel to speak with as many people who might have had contact with Kushner. This effort was all part of seeing if Kushner might be acting as an Israeli agent which would bring him instantly under charges. They turned over every leaf, combed every paper trail, and still came up empty. Interestingly, quoting once again from Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel,

Mueller’s suspicions of Israel — and Jews as a whole — go back to his early days as the FBI director.
In 2004, the Mueller FBI alleged that a massive Israeli spy ring was operating out of the Pentagon. The stunning revelations sent shockwaves throughout the intelligence community, and it was followed by endless editorials painting Israel as a nefarious actor seeking to undermine the United States.
Yet it later turned out that the allegations were completely bogus. There was no Israeli spy ring, but rather, what appeared to be a deliberate attempt to target Jews for prosecution. There were several disturbing instances of the Mueller FBI running sting operations attempting to “tempt Jews” to betray their country. “All turned down the offer,” according to the Washington Post. Mueller’s attempts to lure Jews into a trap failed. The botched operation confirmed the troubling reality that elements of the U.S. intelligence community remained attached to anti-Semitism.

Meanwhile, the investigatory team sent to Israel was tasked specifically to track down the activities of at least two Israeli social media and consulting firms. Mueller and his prosecutors suggested in leaks to the media, something done way too freely by everyone from the Justice Department, that the Israeli firms probably have colluded with the Trump campaign to secure his election victory. After all, it simply could not have been the will of the American electorate, those ones which President Obama once quipped, “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

 

 

We used to believe the Mueller Probe was largely about overturning the Presidential Election as well as, failing that, preventing President Trump from accomplishing much of his program by hogtying as many in his administration with fighting against seemingly honest efforts to remove Trump from office. This has so catastrophically failed that even many Democrats now see the Mueller Probe as a boat anchor preventing their ship from sailing. Trust that it is more than that anchor as the mainstream stalwarts of the Democrat Party insist on firing their cannonades through the decks and the bottom of the boat which is sinking their hopes for the midterm elections. The Republican Party stands to gain in both houses despite recent efforts by retiring Speaker Paul Ryan to sabotage Republican gains. All the Republicans really need control is President Trump and his Tweeting something horribly offensive or some other unforgivable gaff. Also, the Republicans should do everything quietly and behind the scenes to encourage Mueller to continue full speed ahead and continue leaking like a sieve. The media will take care of the rest, as they cannot help themselves. If they even get a whiff of something anti-Trump, they are right on it and running with it to their ever-appreciative editors. But could we ask one more favor of Mueller while he is running to and fro attempting to chase his personal daemons, could you actively attempt to link Israel with Trump and Russia and spell it all out in the media and throw in a full recounting about how the Israelis foiled you uncovering their spy ring in the Pentagon and how this is all about Israel preventing you from finding the truth about Trump because, well, you know, they control Trump and the government. Of course that would mean they chose you knowing that you are looking for the Israel angle almost as hard as you are the Trump and Russia angle. Keep up the good work, really.

Ends and Means and Which Justifies Which

 

There are many phrases about this subject such as, “The ends do not justify the means,” and other variations on the subject. The real problem is that government agencies often conduct their business as if the ends justify their means. There actually is a logical reason for why their operations appear as such. The government agencies are handed ends and told to write regulations to achieve what the Congressional legislation defined, thus the bureaucrats are charged to build the means to achieve defined ends. This means that their job description is to make means which are justified by the ends where the ends are the Congressional legislative work which is often vague and filled with generalizations and often touchy-feely terminology which only half defines the intended ends; they often lack conclusions and only provide broad suggestions. Then such sketchy definitions of what the Congress actually may have desired is left for the bureaucrats to determine the final ends which they believe the Congress actually desired. As is often the case, many different agencies and committees within each agency are given the legislation and told to work on a section and flesh out the Congressional intentions as best as they are able to interpret and make their work also fit well with the entirety of the legislation. This is why the government bureaucracy is often accused, rightfully, of using the ends to justify their means or writing regulations in order to attempt and fulfill their interpretation of the meaning of Congressional legislation which has been signed into law. This also has led to the definition of these agencies and their bureaucracy as being the “Deep State” and now being portrayed as the monster fighting against President Trump and his preferred ends.

 

Perhaps this would be a good time to try to define “Deep State” and what makes up this entity and how it came into being and other items which might be helpful. The first thing which needs to be told is under which party’s leadership the “Deep State” was predominantly established. This is easy to determine simply by looking at the history of the last century. During that time, there have been definitive prerogatives which applied to the two parties. The Republicans have mostly enlarged the military while cutting back on the rest of the government often using hiring freezes for all but the military and some of the research and development which would often include NASA, an area of government which has rarely ever received more than one percent of the total budget while being tasked with some of the most taxing and exacting demands. The Democrats have often worked at building support functions such as welfare, Social Security, social spending and placing taxes and regulations on industry to play to their particular special interests such as ecological lobby, workers’ rights and similar items. Probably the best means would be to quote from the Democrat Party 2016 Platform where we find the following; Workers Share in Near-Record Corporate Profits, Reining in Wall Street and Fixing our Financial System, Making the Wealthy Pay Their Fair Share of Taxes, Ending Systemic Racism, Guaranteeing Every Minority or Special Interest’s Rights, Protecting Voting Rights, Securing Environmental and Climate Justice, Making Debt-Free College a Reality, Guaranteeing Universal Preschool, Securing Universal Health Care, Securing Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice, Preventing Gun Violence, Support Global Economy and Institutions and lastly Strengthening Management of Federal Government. Needless to say, for fairness we will also link to the Republican Party 2016 Platform. They are equally incriminating, especially when proving a point.

 

Back to our discussion, the Democrats more often are the party which hires the largest numbers of new government workers, especially in and around Washington D.C. This has led to the government agencies being predominantly liberal bordering on leftist. These are the people who make up the bureaucracy and who slowly have worked their way higher and higher to the point where they are now responsible for all of the hiring and they hire people of like minds. Unfortunately, nepotism is not exactly discouraged in reality though it is against most departmental hiring policy, but when your child is seeking a job, what could give them better job security than a job which after successful completion of a year in service you become almost unfireable. This is what faces each administration which wished to cut the size of the government, the only method is to freeze hiring. On the other side, monitoring the regulatory jungle from growing one is pretty much on their own. Trump has issued an Executive Order that for every new regulation an agency issues, they must retire two regulations. Still, there are so many regulations, some which have been found to be completely opposing one another. There are regulations which should have been repealed ages ago and with so many regulations, almost everybody has crossed the line of some regulation before noon providing you left the house. The reality is the government agencies are set up to operate filling in the means which result, if we are fortunate, producing the ends the Congress passed and the President signed into law.

 

Now we can look at some recent actions which have been in the News, actually has been the focus of the news almost to the point of obsession. The question we should be asking is whether the people assigned to enforce the laws have been using means to justify the proposed ends or using the means to lead to non-preconceived ends. Justice is supposed to be taking the evidence and seeing where it leads and not determining where the evidence is desired to lead and then fitting the evidence to reach that end. The Mueller investigation is exactly the opposite of what an investigation is supposed to be. As far as all appearances, the Mueller investigation has been set on the campaign and anything else necessary to find an impeachable offence which can be leveled at President Trump. He was to initially look into potential Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. The investigation is presumably heading towards its conclusion. The one major item left is the presumed discussion between Mueller and President Trump, providing President Trump proves foolish enough to provide Mueller with such a present.

 

Mueller Shooting Questions at President Trump

Mueller Shooting Questions at President Trump

 

United States District Judge T.S. Ellis III has been charged to preside over the special counsel’s criminal case against Paul Manafort. Friday, Judge Ellis accused the Mueller team of “lying” about the scope of its investigation; something which has been a bone of contention chewed on by many a commentator. He asked for a copy of the unredacted “scope memo” penned by Rod Rosenstein, something a far cry from what was provided Congress. From here, we can only go into conjecture also not having an unredacted version of the memo. By everything we have witnessed, Rod Rosenstein, the Undersecretary of Justice and number two man in the Justice Department, pretty much gave Mueller a free hunting certificate to go wherever was required to nail President Trump to the wall with impeachment as the trophy. He used this to take the evidence piled up, often illegally, by researched by James Comey, Andrew McCabe and, believe it or not, Robert Mueller. Much of what the Mueller probe has been targeting has been at President Trump’s friends and campaign personnel and apparently specifically targeting two people to get dirt on President Trump. The initial work was actually performed under President Obama with the FBI using the Russian dossier on Donald Trump produced by Christopher Steele through intermediaries for the Hillary Clinton campaign to receive a FISA warrant to wiretap Carter Page. This led to their finding reason to bring preliminary charges against him which they used to parlay into his turning evidence against Paul Manafort. This brought charges against Paul Manafort for purposes totally unrelated to the Russian collusion investigation and for something performed years before he was even part of the Trump campaign. This was hoped to have him turn over again President Trump but he decided that he would prefer to go down rather than provide what he would probably classify as lies in order to snare the President.

 

All of these moves have been the ends justify the means. The entirety of this investigation has smelled of throwing out the rules and just going for the prize at the end of the road. The charges they brought against Manafort resulted equally from the testimony of Page and investigations into Manafort by Mueller when he was President Obama’s FBI Director. Now he got to finish what he started as the Special Prosecutor with all the advantages of secrecy and the ability to bring charges which probably would never have gotten past a knowledgeable Grand Jury or passed a normal legal sniff test. These were the nature of the trap he set and pegged Manafort with while receiving an assist from Page in order to escape the trap he was caught in resulting from an illegally procured FISA warrant. There are so many ends justifying the means in this train all in an effort to initially injure candidate Trump in order to assist the Hillary campaign and after the election to everything changed to removing President Trump in order to save the nation. If they were really successful, they might even get the entire election thrown out as having been interfered with by the Russians and give Hillary and the Democrats a second chance in a special election. These people have been watching far too many Hollywood movies.

 

The interesting thing will be the coming Manafort trial with United States District Judge T.S. Ellis III presiding. He has initially shown a good deal of skepticism with his demand for an unredacted copy of the Undersecretary of Justice Rod Rosenstein “scope memo” which gave the extreme and apparently unlimited latitude which the investigation has taken. We might call the coming trial as deciding in this day and age, even when the reasons are presumably so obviously important to the safety of the nation and ensuring the perceived person deserving to be elected wins or otherwise gets a do-over, do such ends justify the means which have been gone to. Should the decision be that Manaford’s indictment was politically motivated and came from evidence which was beyond the scope of the investigation and thus inadmissible, then we will reach another question, will anybody high enough in this entire brouhaha actually be called to answer for all the illegal attacking of President Trump and his friends and campaign personnel? How high will the responsibilities be taken, Comey? Rosenstein? McCabe? Mueller? Hillary? Or even President Obama? Why would we include President Obama? Mainly because these investigations began under his watch and with former FBI Director Mueller and continued through his replacement, former FBI Director Comey, which would imply that Comey was instructed to continue Mueller’s initial investigation. We believe that once people rise to a certain level, they become virtually unsusceptible to legal indictment provided they quietly retire.

If My Name Were James Comey

 

Well, I would likely be very proud and satisfied that my performance before the full Senate Intelligence Committee believing that I came across brilliantly and appeared to be one of the most erudite witnesses ever grilled. I would be proud of defending my propaganda sheet put out before I was even sworn in which was my effort to taint the waters in my favor and put in place the groundwork setting the base for my testimony to back it up and enforce making everything airtight. I would feel assured that my testimony has vindicated my actions referring to reinstating the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation and announcing such publically thus indemnifying me from my earlier allowing myself to be influenced to assist the Clinton campaign language about the FBI investigation being merely a “matter” rather than an investigation. And best of all and my proudest achievement is that I have cemented the investigation by the Special Prosecutor who is going to nail my number one enemy, Donald Trump. All in all, I can now look forward to glowing write-ups in the New York Times, Washington Post, the Boston Globe, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Chicago Sun Times, the Los Angeles Times as well as the Guardian, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Le Monde, Libération, and perhaps an amusing poking from Charlie Hebdo to round out the glorious praises I am about to receive. I am simply fascinated with myself and my performance, I was at my absolute best which nobody can deny and made poignant points which will be unassailable. About the only thing missing, and I have not yet given up on this, and that is a ticker-tape parade down Fifth Avenue in New York just like the astronauts who landed on the Moon received upon their release from quarantine. I love me.

 

James Comey

James Comey

 

Now I have to make a confession, my name is not James Comey. Mr. Comey may be pleased with his performance and believe his acting made his act even better and he might even be expecting an Oscar, but the reality is not as shining. The first hint that there may be some holes and dents in his testimony was that both Democrats and Republicans are claiming victory. That is a problem because he likely was hoping for the Democrats to be throwing wild parties in celebration and the Republicans preparing for the burial of Donald Trump after his execution for inexcusable crimes. The big glaring hole was his admitting that he had told President Trump three times that he was not under investigation for anything in reference to the Russian story. This was one statement by President Trump which the Democrats claimed was a bald-faced lie and that this was proof positive that Donald Trump is a rogue. Honestly, is anybody actually debating whether or not Donald Trump is a rogue? I thought even the most ardent Trump supporters had granted that even before the election still claiming that he was their rogue and was going to fulfill their greatest desires and undo Washington D.C. and untangle the Gordian Knot that is the Washington bureaucracy. So, what else can we say about the most talked about testimony which some almost compared to the second coming (first coming for our Jewish friends) and possibly another grand Buddha or other visionary before the event left everybody less than satisfied.

 

There was the obstruction of justice hoped for claims against President Trump. Well, James Comey already did the damage of initiating a Special Prosecutor to be put on the scent to chase down President Trump and place him in the box and Impeachment. Granted, a Special Prosecutor almost guarantees that something untoward will be found, inflated to the size of a conspiracy, brought to the left’s attention who will then demand Impeachment be brought so there can be a trial in the Senate. They might even threaten that should the Republicans obstruct their honorable scrutiny of President Trump and finding this gem of a charge that President Trump is most guilty of having committed and thus must be placed on trial and if not under Impeachment, then they will demand the calling of a grand jury to bring criminal charges into a court of law which will force an Impeachment once Trump is found guilty. Don’t ask what President Trump is guilty of as the Special Prosecutor has yet to find that tiny morsel laying in some obscure corner. The one thing for sure is it will have to do with Putin, Russia and his son-in-law Jared Kushner. This will go along painfully slow and the Democrat leftists will use any and all of anything found, inferred or invented to prevent the Congress from actually performing their jobs such as reforming the disaster that is the healthcare insurance industry which is being deconstructed one company at a time or revising the tax structure such that businesses can actually do business, especially small businesses which employ the vast majority of Americans.

 

There is a person who should start shopping for a good criminal lawyer who specializes in Federal charges of obstruction of justice and interfering with an active investigation of a felonious criminal activity. This person is former Attorney General Loretta Lynch whose insistence that James Comey as Director of the FBI refer to the criminal investigation into the use of an unsecured private e-mail server in her home by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton thus breaking every security protocol of the State Department as a mere “matter” just as the Clinton campaign was referring to the investigation in efforts to lessen its severity and lessen its impact on the electorate. This entire effort obviously failed, as the people are not the fools the Clinton campaign believed them to be, or at least the people in fly-over country are not the ignorant yahoos as the Clinton campaign thought the “deplorables” to be. When Comey told about being pressured by Attorney General Loretta Lynch to lessen the language and camouflage the severity of the potential charges being scrutinized by the FBI, this was direct interference with an ongoing FBI investigation by having the Director of the FBI charged with lying to the public, to Congress, to the world about an investigation by his superior in the Department of Justice. That is a Cabinet of the President level of leaning on a subordinate to alter facts in order to influence an election, and not just any election but a Presidential election. The fact that James Comey came out right before the election, some would claim at the worst possible time, with the truth, the reality, that the e-mail “matter” was actually an honest to goodness investigation, just as everyone backing Hillary Clinton feared most and were in an all-out effort to minimize the impact of this specific “matter”, this event, this thing of little importance, and Comey felt he had to come clean before the election fearing otherwise facing real problems should Trump win, something which was becoming a possibility as the gap was closing.

 

Then there is the small matter that President Trump committed Obstruction of Justice by leaning on the FBI director when he made the request that Mr. Comey might find a way to go easy on Lieutenant General Michael Flynn (ret.) and fired Presidential Security Advisor. Find your way to go easy is not demanding that the FBI end their investigation and at worst is a request that you raise the standard for bringing charges such that you only do so if the evidence is conclusive and guarantees a guilty verdict. Comey even stated that he was not deterred from continuing with the investigation and that Trump’s wishing was completely inconsequential, just as it should have been. But expect the Trump disruptors to continue claiming that this is the smoking gun of President Trump’s guilt of Obstruction of Justice charges and this is definitely an Impeachable level offense. They will claim that this is so flagrant that there is no need for the Special Prosecutor to look into this and there need not be charges of Impeachment or even a trial by the Senate, this is so flagrant that President Trump should have resigned before the Inauguration, this is how horrid his actions, all his actions, everyone has been from even before the election. Oh, and let us not forget the undeniable Trump criminal ignorance and proof of his mental instability, the ultimate proof of Donald Trump’s unsuitability to hold the office of President, “covfefe,” the ultimate proof.

 

Then there is the most wonderful of all things, James Comey has stated that President Donald Trump is a liar, a lot! You have to understand, Comey means a liar as in incapable of knowing truth from the fictions of his mind. We’re talking liar as in not knowing reality from the visions he has in his most paranoid moments. This also shows how Donald Trump is completely unsuited to be President of the United States. The nation has to realize the problem with the last election and repair the damage and put the only candidate who is incapable of lying into the Oval Office, the candidate who won the popular vote because to heck with the Constitution, it should be what we claim it should be and Hillary won and that’s that. Never mind the Republican witch-hunts which their hunting of Hillary resembled the McCarthy era hunt for Communists. No politician ever has been subjected to such indignities and Donald Trump has been permitted to get away with everything he desires. He is a virtual dictator and it is doubtful we will ever see another election if he is not stopped and Hillary granted what is rightfully hers. We must save the nation from the devil now pretending to be President before he ruins the nation and everything wonderful accomplished by President Obama. Who cares if Comey came up empty, we know there is something there if only the right person would investigate. We have our Special Prosecutor who just might find the smoking gun about the Russian collusion with Trump to steal the White House from Queen Hillary; I mean the honorable Hillary Clinton and former First Lady, Senator from New York (carpetbagger) and Secretary of State. What are President Trump’s qualifications? His failed real estate ventures, his failed fake school, everything he touches fails and this is what he will bring to the government and the country unless he is stopped and replaced by somebody honorable, and that removes that Pence religious and bigoted fanatic from being given the Presidency. The only person in all of the United States who is ready, willing and capable of executing the office of the Presidency with credible and honorable actions is, obviously, Hillary Clinton. She has to replace that liar in chief Donald Trump so we will have a President who knows how to tell the truth and has never been caught in any lie.

 

Then there are the highlights we found as reported by New York Times from the Comey testimony. We will report their findings verbatim placing them within quotes as well as bolded and italicized. “James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, testified that President Trump and others in his administration lied when they said agents had lost confidence in Mr. Comey.” Reworded, the FBI agents love me and think I was the most wonderful of all directors ever placed over their department. They will be in a state of mourning for weeks, months maybe, now that the most evil “Supreme Commander of the Imperial Forces” Donald Trump has destroyed the FBI and its ability to function with my dismissal.

 

Lordy, I hope there are tapes,” Mr. Comey said, referring to Mr. Trump’s suggestion that he may have recorded their conversations.” While in his head there is the fear that maybe there are tapes and it was not just empty rhetoric, Comey prays that the two or three exaggerations he has allowed himself will be revealed and this will place everything he has said in testimony in question. Tapes, he is thinking, could be his vindication or his immediate downfall.

 

Mr. Comey revealed for the first time that he turned over memos about his conversations with Mr. Trump to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III.” This revelation was likely made just in case there are tapes and this comes out making him look particularly bad. Either way, this does make him look like a petty, little man looking to aggrandize himself using privileged information leaking it to the media in an attempt to bring down the man he despises. These leaks were a maneuver to ruin the President before he could fire Comey. The fact that Comey did not make notes when working under President Bush or President Obama or when dealing with Secretary of State Clinton or Attorney General Loretta Lynch but only with President Trump was because of his claim that he only suspected Trump of lying. One has to wonder what was the real motivation to do such and the leaking of information was done as a means to an end, the destruction of this Liar in Chief who Comey, along with so many other of the progressive left, believes is a fraud who does not deserve nor has he earned the right to represent the United States or even those who elected him because if those who voted for Trump knew him as Comey does, they would not have voted for him but had voted for the rightful person, Hillary, the person deserving of the Presidency.

 

The problem with former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony, and we could cherry pick some more of the more choice extracts, but each side has what they need and we all know that everything has two sides these days, but the problem was much of it seemed to be an apology for his perceived difficulties and vindictiveness against President Trump. It was difficult sometimes to tell if he desired Hillary either or if he simply was like many Americans who thought the choices in this past election was choosing the lesser of two very different evils, one who desired power too much and one too frivolous to give that power to. The anger over the past election stems strongly from the fact that the two choices were each so poor of choices that neither candidate appeared to have been anywhere near the best either party could have posted, but these were the choices. When one looked down the slate of Republican challengers, what were there, seventeen of them, and which would have been a better choice? Jeb Bush, not what the people wanted and thus dead from the start. Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Lindsey Graham, Scott Walker, and Rick Perry for some but not mainstream enough or they were too mainstream. Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson had the appeal and would have won and been good candidates all the way through the Republican Convention but as soon as the real campaign began, they would have been destroyed.

 

The Republicans could never have won the Presidency with their regular candidates and none of the unconventional candidates had any possibility of standing against the Democrat machine and the Clinton campaign strategists but the person chosen had something going for him that the others could never have matched, he was just crazy enough to be completely outside convention and run a campaign which would withstand any regular rules and campaign in such a manner as to withstand even the most vicious of attacks from even the Clintons. Then again, Hillary could beat Donald Trump, thump him actually, under all regular rules, under any normative election, but this was something different, an event, a thing, something the historians will puzzle about and debate whether it was the correct path or did the United States run off the tracks. This was really the political event of the century, maybe of the millennium. There has not been a political event of this magnitude since, well, since the assassination of Caesar. The people of the United States were in a different and more extreme state than were the British when they voted BREXIT and they displayed their displeasure with everything political. The initial retort to the regular political elites and the less mainstream politicals, simply because they were political, was that the voting public wanted something new, real and actually standing for the ideals they support. That left one candidate who the angered body politic who does the electing, especially the people who normally are taken for granted as they live in the less urban regions of the nation, the presumed uneducated and less refined and those taken for granted as being of insufficient numbers and power to have any influence over Presidential elections, could support. Well, they were sufficiently aroused to speak loudly and clearly, no political games and no political candidate who claimed to be the same old mainstream political operative. The Democrats said it with their, “I’m with Bernie.” The Republicans said it with Donald Trump. The Democrats stifled their little voices and the Republicans allowed theirs to scream loud and clear, “Not the same old political games.” The Democrats destroyed their chance at a revolutionary candidate and the Republicans tried something very different, something far from the John McCain or Mitt Romney this time again. Then the people, in a close race, chose the non-politician over the consummate politician. Comey likes the political game and President Trump challenged the status quo, all of the status quo, so Comey worked to remove what he saw as an impostor. He will fail just as he failed to withstand the pressure from the Clinton camp to tailor his language to match the campaign.
