More lying…

leave a comment »

Did you believe former Attorney General Loretta Lynch when she claimed that all she and former President Bill Clinton discussed in their private meeting on the airport tarmac was golf and grandchildren?   I suspect you did not for even a nano-second,  because you are not only smarter than that,  you also probably don’t trust the government any more than I do.

And man, were we correct!   Thanks to the indefatigable folks at Judicial Watch,  we have learned that the FBI under Jim Comey  coordinated all the logistics and security for the meeting of those two high-level people.

There is also a report that a tape exists of the meeting,  but NSA refuses to release it.

More government-funded disaster…

leave a comment »

Why do people persist in thinking government displays competence at anything?  Why do taxpayers continue to meekly allow government at any level to confiscate their money, then lie to them and steal from them?  This is  but the latest  example in a long list of  foul-ups,  for which the federal government holds the title as undisputed champion.

The  firm responsible  and one of its partners were already being sued for another structure’s failure,  yet the  Obama Administration   never kicked them off the list.

UPDATE:  And the Florida Department of Transportation was warned of  cracks,  but  didn’t listen  to its voicemail in a timely fashion.

How entertaining…

The House Intelligence Committee has voted  to release  the four-page memo the GOP prepared,  and against releasing the Democrats’ counter-memo.   The counter-memo was  not released  because it has not been released to the full committee yet.   Democrats are scurrying around with their collective hair on fire,  shrieking unintelligibly about national security and such.

I am certainly looking forward to seeing a summary document of the whole FISA mess which by necessity will mention the Russia collusion and the myriad connections to Hillary,  especially in light of the fact that FBI Director Christopher Wray and  Deputy Attorney General Rod  Rosenstein met with Chairman Devin Nunes to review the memo and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe  was removed  from his position shortly thereafter.   Was there  some connection  between the memo and McCabe’s departure?   Or did it have to do with the Inspector General’s  scheduled testimony  before Congress,  which has abruptly been canceled?   My remaining question is,  will McCabe be allowed to retire,  or will he be perp-walked out of his house to a holding cell?

Flying high…

President Trump has cut some funding to the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees,  which I would classify as a good start.   In the face of that news, the eternally corrupt Palestinian Authority  is reported  to have purchased a new luxurious $50 million private jet to be used by Pres.  Mahmoud Abbas.

Why we taxpayers are forced to give one red cent to  a fiction  is beyond me.   Abbas and his cronies are not interested in peace,  only in having a “process”  by which he can garner more funding,  precious little of which actually reaches his people.

Progressives ruin another city…

leave a comment »

This time it’s San Francisco,  where Mayor Willie Brown terminated ordinances,  then city district Attorney Terence Hallinan refused to prosecute  so-called “victimless”  crimes involving drugs and prostitution.   The result is that San Francisco now has an  online map  to track poop so pedestrians can try to avoid it.   Public urination is so widespread it has damaged subway elevators and escalators,  building walls and power poles.

The gleaming jewel by the bay  that was San Fran is now a waste pit thanks to the policies of its totally progressive leaders.   Quick,  name me an American city of any size run by liberals of any ethnicity which has improved even slightly in any category whatsoever.   Trick question  — there are none.  Think Baltimore, Maryland, once a jewel of its own with sterling amenities, now a stateside hellhole.  Detroit,  Cleveland,  Reno,  Chicago, Camden,  Memphis,  even New Haven, CT, home to Yale.   All these places have suffered massively from liberal politics and policies,

A real city has actually run out of other people’s money,  and no, it wasn’t Chicago,  but it was in Illinois.   After  decades of  fiscal irresponsibility and massive corruption and such jaw-droppers as Mayor Eric Kellogg’s administration in 2015 using $51,000 in federal grant money to get the mayor an SUV instead of purchasing squad cars for the police department, the proverbial chickens have taken up residence in City Hall.

Do bear in mind that the population of Harvey,is more than 75% black.  City officials will be delayed at least a week while they search for more money pits to mine and the politicians who have already robbed the citizenry lie and claim they didn’t know.  Firing squad at dawn sounds too good for any of them,  but I figure it will take only about 10 days before someone demands a federal bailout,  and anyone who quite sensibly objects will be called a racist.

The real collusion…

leave a comment »

…all belongs to the Obama Administration.    Daniel John Sobieski  lays it out for  you,  from the felonious conduct of former FBI director,  James Come,  to Loretta Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton and efforts to make sure Hillary suffered no real legal consequences for her multiple violations of half a dozen federal laws. to the sudden hiding of records pertaining to Susan Rice and her unmasking of U.S. citizens in intelligence reports.

 All you Obama-lovers out there should remember the root cause of all this hot mess is the same man who told FOX News there wasn’t a hint of scandal in the IRS or anywhere else in his administration,   and the same man who assured a top Russian official he’d have  “more flexibility” after the election, and the same man who repeatedly said  “If you like your doctor,  you can keep your doctor” while extolling the virtues of ObamaCare, especially the lowered costs and better coverage,  none of which was ever even remotely true.
The Obama Administration was full of individuals who lied and colluded to fool the American people, and have continued to lie and obstruct to avoid just and due prosecution for their crimes.   Add to this the misconduct of the FBI and various Obama officials  in the witch-hunt  of Gen. Mike Flynn and you get a sense of how deep and wide the rot is.
