Tick Tock

By Patrick Van Roy On August 12th, 2020 at 5:08 pm

I feel like Pope Julius II dealing with Michelangelo……. when will you make an end…..

John Durham’s investigation is like sitting in a room full of people with a bomb ticking away right in the center of the table and everyone knows it’s there, everyone knows it’s going to go off but everyone just act’s like it’s not there…. when it blows the carnage will be horrific 

Frequently Asked Questions About The Russia Hoax And Durham Investigation, ANSWERED!

Frequently Asked Questions About The Russia Hoax And Durham Investigation, ANSWERED!

TIMELINE OF HOAX AND WHEN WILL WE GET DURHAM’S CONCLUSION?

The numerous stories that result from US Attorney John Durham’s investigation would not be made public until after the election was always silly speculation. Attorney General William Barr had stated on the record that it would happen by the end of the summer.  Both he and Durham are smart enough to realize that anything immediately before or after the election would be politically troublesome.  So, sometime around labor day is the likely conclusion.

Yeah we’ve been hearing this all year…. the Chicom Flu put everything on hold, but this bomb is going to go off.

Durham has a reputation for being a serious guy who scrupulously follows the law and ignores politics.  He’s an intrepid investigator.  He has far more tools in his box than the DOJ Inspector General whose powers were limited.  So, Durham has a greater chance of uncovering the truth behind the Russia Hoax.

No he’s a puppet of Trump a stooge like Barr, it’s all a conspiracy fake.

So much of the “collusion” case against Trump was built on the weak foundation of the phony Steele dossier that was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. Four days after Trump was inaugurated, the FBI debunked it by interviewing Steele’s primary source, Igor Danchenko. The FBI learned from him that it was nothing more than multiple hearsay from “random associates” and his drinking buddies.  The main accusations were all untrue.

Blaspheme…. The Steele Dossier was handed down on the mount written with a finger of fire on stone tablets. 

Comey and the FBI should have ended their investigation and withdrawn their spy warrants against Carter Page.  Instead, they concealed the information from Congress, the president, and the American people.  They escalated their investigation of Trump that then evolved into a 22-month long probe by a special counsel who should never have been appointed.  Thus, one illegitimate investigation beget another.

Trump is a Russian Spy the country must be protected from itself…. the White Knight James Comey will save us.

No reasonable person can look at this and not come to the conclusion that it was politically motivated and driven by anti-Trump bias.  How is it possible that a small group of unelected but powerful government officials could convince tens of millions of Americans that Trump was a Russian asset.  It’s outrageous… and the greatest mass delusion in political history.

Reason left a lot of peoples heads when Trump won.

WHAT IS THE SUBJECT OF DURHAM’S INVESTIGATION?

The Durham criminal investigation appears to be focused on several areas:

Did the FBI abuse their power by launching an investigation of Trump and his campaign in the summer of 2016 for political reasons and without the required legal predicate?

Did U.S. officials out-source intelligence operations to foreign governments to spy on Americans?

Did government officials lie to FISA judges and defraud the court in obtaining warrants to spy on Carter Page?

Was Michael Flynn unfairly targeted for political reasons and was exculpatory evidence deliberately concealed.
Did Obama administration officials unmask incoming Trump officials improperly and for political reasons?

Did people, like John Brennan, make false representations about whether the dossier was used as part of the intelligence assessment?

Everyone of those acts is a Felony, most can also be Sedition, and Treason.

CAN WE EXPECT A REPORT?

It’s a mistake to automatically assume there will be a “Durham report,” as is frequently stated in the media.  Any report that reveals the conduct of individuals not indicted is against DOJ rules.  So, Durham would have to obtain a waiver.  He may do that.  But it’s more likely that he will issue several indictments that contain information about his findings or issue both a report and indictments.

There will be no report, a summary will be released. Durham is not writing a report he is conducting a criminal investigation that will either produce Indictments or it won’t. He is a Prosecuting Attorney General not an IG Inspector like Horowitz was.  Horowitz referred 15 people for Prosecution that were never prosecuted. Durham does not have to “refer” he has full authority to Indict and Prosecute.

Barr has suggested there will be indictments.  But he also said that not all wrongdoing or abuse of power constitutes felony crimes.  That is a key point often overlooked.  Barr is correct.

The evidence is compelling that Comey, McCabe and Strzok were profoundly corrupt and abused their positions of power.  In a just world they’d be indicted for deprivation of rights, fraud, conspiracy to defraud, and obstruction and/or perjury.   But I’m not optimistic that this malevolent trio will ever be held accountable.  Why?  Their deviousness worked to their advantage in covering up their bad acts.

I believe Jarret’s summary conclusion is wrong. I believe we will have the pleasure of seeing at least Crooked Cop James Comey do the Perp Walk, I believe it will not only be him but several others will be in cuffs right at his side. 

This is about the Republic, about Civil Rights and the Equal Application of the Law. I watched an interview with AG Barr on Sunday night, a full hour with Mark Levin. What struck me as I watched the interview was if I could get every liberal I knew past their bile to sit and listen to what I heard I believe their view in their heart if not in public would be put at ease about Barr. He is everything the 60s protesters wanted an AG that want’s justice treated out equally blindly. It was a delightful recitation of real principals. 

No there are going to be Prosecutions after that interview I have ZERO doubt. That Bomb is going off…..

Free Speech…..

By Patrick Van Roy On August 12th, 2020 at 2:40 pm

Since we can’t comment we can still read….. here is an article I found this morning that I enjoyed I hope you do too. From the Daily Signal

‘Philadelphia Statement’ Defends Free Speech From Cancel Culture

Asserting that cancel culture has put freedom of expression in crisis, a statement initially signed by 45 prominent individuals from universities, think tanks, and other organizations asserts that expressing “ideas we find offensive is not an act of ‘violence.’”

Called the Philadelphia Statement, the 845-word document says in part:

If we seek to change our country’s trajectory; if we desire unity rather than division; if we want a political life that is productive and inspiring; if we aspire to be a society that is pluralistic and free, one in which we can forge our own paths and live according to our own consciences, then we must renounce ideological blacklisting and recommit ourselves to steadfastly defending freedom of speech and passionately promoting robust civil discourse.

The statement’s top signatories include Alan Sears, former president of Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal aid group, and Adam J. White, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank. 

Organizers are inviting Americans to sign the document.

They named the statement after Philadelphia, where men of strongly differing viewpoints came together in 1776 to declare America’s independence from England.

The Philadelphia Statement underlines the freedom of Americans to openly disagree while respecting the viewpoints of others: 

Our liberty and our happiness depend upon the maintenance of a public culture in which freedom and civility coexist—where people can disagree robustly, even fiercely, yet treat each other as human beings—and, indeed, as fellow citizens—not mortal enemies.

The Philadelphia Statement comes less than three weeks after a Cato Institute/YouGov poll found that 62% of Americans say they fear expressing their political opinions in the current political climate, up from 58% in 2017. 

The same poll found that about one-third of liberals, moderates, and conservatives say that publicly stating their political views could get them fired or harm their career. 

poll by Politico also found that a plurality of Americans say that cancel culture goes too far.

Although the press, houses of worship, and academia are areas where the First Amendment traditionally has been expected to thrive, high-profile cases recently have surfaced of retaliation against a college professorcollege students, and a church for expressing dissenting views. Opposition to other points of view also has arisen in newsrooms

“As Americans, we desire a flourishing, open marketplace of ideas, knowing that it is the fairest and most effective way to separate falsehood from truth,” the Philadelphia Statement says. “Accordingly, dissenting and unpopular voices—be they of the Left or the Right—must be afforded the opportunity to be heard.”                         

Among the other signers is the Rev. Dean Nelson, chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation. Douglass, a former slave-turned-abolitionist who became a civil rights leader after the Civil War, is twice quoted in the statement. 

Douglass once observed: “Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist.” He also said that freedom of speech is the “great moral renovator of society and government.”

Signers of the statement from academica include Robert P. George, the McCormick professor of jurisprudence and director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University; Carol M. Swain, retired professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University; Pete Peterson, a senior fellow at the Davenport Institute for Public Engagement and Civic Leadership at Pepperdine University; Peter Boghossian, assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University; and Melissa Moschella, assistant professor of philosophy at Catholic University of America, who also is a visiting scholar at The Heritage Foundation’s Edwin J. Feulner Institute. 

Signers from the public policy arena include Michael P. Farris, president of Alliance Defending Freedom; Michael B. Poliakoff, president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni; Mike Gonzalez, a former journalist with The Wall Street Journal who is a senior fellow for foreign policy at The Heritage Foundation; Lisa B. Nelson, CEO of the American Legislative Exchange Council; Roger Ream, president of the Fund for American Studies; Thomas F. Farr, president of the Religious Freedom Institute; and Victor Riches, president of the Goldwater Institute.

The Philadelphia Statement affirms that signatories don’t support absolutist free speech that includes defamation, threats, and inciting violence. 

It also warns advocates of cancel culture that such a system will not always be on their side:

What self-appointed speech arbiters, whether in the majority or in the minority, fail to grasp is that they will likely eventually become the targets. The winds inevitably shift, sometimes rapidly. The question is whether civility norms and free speech safeguards will remain in place to protect them, or whether they will become victims of the dangerous precedents they themselves have established and advanced.

There Has Got To Be A Morning After

By Mahons On August 12th, 2020 at 1:22 pm

The decision by Joe Biden to name Senator Harris as his Vice Presidential Choice is now history (or herstory if you are into the ardent feminist thing). It appears to be a safe choice. The naming of a Vice Presidential candidate no longer seems to be based on adding a region to the ticket so much as complimenting the ticket. Harris doesn’t bring California or even more black votes into the fold (he already had both). She does provide a bit of balance in terms of age, optics and gender. She is liberal but not left wing (the Sanders-Warren faction got bypassed). Not a natural on the campaign trail but there is no campaign trail this year. A record that offers some criticism from the left and the right but nothing damning, and certainly nothing too fringe to trouble greatly the mainstream who Biden needs to get back to win those swing states. She is of course the fourth woman on a national ticket (the other three lost). It certainly won’t hurt in appealing to women who happen to represent more of a swing vote, especially this time. All in all a conventional and safe choice from a campaign that is running a safe campaign in unconventional times. She didn’t always agree with the Vice President which is a good thing, look what happens when people don’t dare to disagree with the head on an Administration. It is almost as if Biden was following the doctor’s code of “do no harm”.

Fly Me To The Moon

By Mahons On August 12th, 2020 at 12:49 pm

The Russian Covid Vaccine has been dubbed the Sputnick drug as it appears to be a scientifically questionable attempt to launch the fist vaccine by Putin in an attempt to “beat” the World to a vaccine. It has that Cold war race to the Moon feel about it.
When your media is used as a virtual rubber stamp for your policies (Hello Russia Today) you have an opportunity to pull the wool over the eyes of some people. Reaction worldwide has primarily been skeptical. Only true nutcases seem to be jumping at the chance to take it. We worry about Trump’s lack of credibility but Putin takes it to a new level: boldly proclaiming success in spite of significant skepticism. It is a wonder he didn’t make the announcement with his shirt off. I suspect half the reason that he made the announcement is not because he thinks he will actually be believed, but to show how big a fable he can spin without any domestic political consequences. No doubt anti-Vaccine conspiracy nuts will be in a twist. Do they accept they statement from him (the leader of so much of their disinformation on other topics) or do they question his motives?

SHE DID WHAT?

By Pete Moore On August 11th, 2020 at 10:47 pm

Anyone who applauds Kamala Harris being chosen as Biden’s running mate, because she’s a black woman, is stupid. Deeply, unalterably stupid. Those who care, even a little, for character and track record, cannot say they did not know. Kamala Harris is a very bad person. Even the New York Times knows it. The good news is that it suggests she’s not ideological. It’s the ideological who do the real damage to society. Kamala Harris is just another political grifter on the make, but she will do anything, literally anything, even to the innocent and powerless, to advance herself –
