Unless you have been off the grid or in a coma for the last year or so, I’m sure you know the story of Comey’s involvement in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, as well as the investigation into Trump’s supposed collaboration with the Russian government. In fact, I have even written previously about the FBI investigation’s potential impact on the election in my article:
“Anthony Weiner’s Wiener Could Help Determine Winner Of Presidential Election” (http://www.diabolicalrantings.com/2016/10/fbis-second-clinton-investigation-takes.html
Then last week, Hillary Clinton made the comment at a speaking engagement that if the election had been on October 27th (the day before Comey notified Congress that the investigation into Clinton was being re-opened), that she had no doubt that she would be President. Interestingly, she made no mention of the fact that she was quite possibly the worst, most corrupt Presidential candidate in the history of the United States.
Throughout the years that I have been interested in and aware of politics, I cannot remember another time when the public’s opinion of a key figure flip-flopped so many times.
Comey began investigating Clinton and her illegal use of a private email server: Democrats Hate him – Republicans love him.
Comey closes the investigation into Clinton and recommends no charges: Republicans hate him – Democrats love him.
Comey announces new evidence has been uncovered and the investigation into Clinton is being re-opened: Democrats Hate him – Republicans love him.
Comey announces that the new evidence had been reviewed and the investigation into Clinton is being closed again: Republicans hate him – Democrats love him.
Clinton loses the election: Democrats Hate him – Republicans love him.
FBI opens investigation into allegations of Russian “meddling” in our election to ensure a Trump victory: Republicans hate him – Democrats love him.
Whether you agreed with his actions or not, I hope you will at least agree that he was in a difficult position. If I had his job, I probably would have resigned long before now, and I definitely would have begged my doctor for a Xanax prescription. When Comey first became a household name, at the beginning of the Clinton investigation, I remember several news anchors describing him, since most of us were barely even aware of who he was at that point.
I recall him being described as strict, by the book, and not afraid of stepping on toes. It was said that he was possibly the most qualified person in the country to hold the FBI Director title, since he refused to allow party affiliation to ever come into play in investigations. One comical host even joked that Comey was such a hard-ass, that he would investigate his own mother if he thought she might have broken the law.
This opinion however, did not last long. It took almost no time before people began spewing their hatred for the man, only because he appeared to possibly be reaching a conclusion that could hurt their preferred Presidential candidate. I have always heard that if you have enemies, it means you once stood up for something you believed. So I would say that in Comey’s case, since most of the country hated him at one point, he was probably the best man for the job – a job that he now lost due to that un-wavering commitment to finding the truth.
I must say that I find it ironic how the Democrat’s opinion of Comey changed so quickly. Just last week, they were essentially blaming him for Clinton’s loss. Now, however, Trump has fired him, so the Democrats in their standard post-election fashion, must oppose the decision. Suddenly I quit hearing how Comey was to blame for the loss. This blame was quickly replaced by cries that Comey must have been close to uncovering something in the investigation into Russian involvement, which surely would have guaranteed an impeachment of Trump.
It’s all just the same rhetoric being spewed over and over again by the left. At this point, there really is no reason for them to even go to the trouble of opposing each individual action Trump takes or doesn’t take. We get it, liberals hate Trump, even though most of them don’t even know why. They might as well just issue one “blanket opposition” to every single thing Trump says and does for the remainder of his presidency. Then Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren can go back to their Bingo game at the nursing home and leave “running the country” to those of us not caught up in blind hatred for our opposition.
So do I agree with Trump’s decision to terminate Comey? Based only on the information I currently have, no, I do not. I don’t think it was the right decision, at least not currently. But it was inevitable that it would eventually happen. Comey was way too involved in the election to escape without a scratch, even though I believe the actions he took were mostly with the right intentions. I think Comey genuinely wanted to make sure everyone knew the truth, so the right person could win the election. I don’t believe that desire was due to any personal bias toward or against either candidate, but rather a desire for everyone to know the truth, whatever it might be.
Unfortunately for Comey, and as we saw with the liberals’ reaction to the Wikileaks document dumps, Democrats believe that anyone who uncovers evidence of their corruption is guilty of trying to influence the outcome of the election. I’m sorry, but if the truth is so damaging to you, perhaps you need to look at why you have chosen to oppose it.
t has been an interesting couple of weeks to say the least. The collusion being endlessly touted by the progressive/socialists and the media between the Trump administration and the Russians has been blown out of the water. CNN, NBC, ABC, and the New York Times are all showing righteous indignation about the collusion that never was. Yet they are unsurprisingly quiet about the information that Nunes may have. They will be vocal about how he got the information, in the hope to drown out what that information may say.
In the lead is Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democrat that shills from California and ranking member of the House Intelligence committee. He declared to all that there Circumstantial evidence of collusion and direct evidence of deception. After the release of the papers that Rep. Nunes was given, Schiff now says there is no definitive proof. Of course, the media played tape constantly of Schiff in the beginning, but have strangely gone silent now. Even members of the entire Intelligence committee have said that they doubt they will find a smoking gun. Perhaps that is because there isn’t one.
The White House invited members of both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees to view the documents. There has been no word from Congressman shill Adam Schiff on whether it was the “more than circumstantial evidence” that he claimed to have.
And then there is Evelyn Farkas, a former member of the Obama administration and a Clinton campaign adviser who admitted to urging the Obama administration to gather intelligence on the Trump administration it could find. It appears that the past administration had already started before this, but this is just another example out in the open of the crimes committed by the Obama administration. In her own words-
“I was urging my former colleagues and, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill, to get as much information as you can, before President Obama leaves office, Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior Obama people who left so it would be hidden away. That the Trump folks-if they found out how we knew what we knew about the Trump staff dealing with the Russians they would try to compromise these sources and methods”
Now why would someone such as Ms. Farkas, who was no longer in government have any information pertaining to intelligence gathering, and have the ability to send such a message to those in intelligence communities and those on “the Hill”?
The how is simple. After Hillary left the State Department, Hillary and six of her aides retained their access to secure materials. Using those credentials and working with those in the Deep State can not only help to attempt to undermine the Trump administration but the integrity of the electoral process as well. Talk of collusion between the Trump administration and the Russians will be forced on the American people for as long as possible. It will used to bludgeon the American people into believing that the Trump administration is illegitimate, and that the progressive/socialist Democrats did not deserve to be thrown out of office as they were.
“Russiagate” as some are calling it will be under investigation for years with no clear answer and no honest facts. The left will use it to attempt to put a cloud over any legislation that the Trump administration attempts, and instead, be forced to explain the false scandals that the mainstream media and Democrats bring up from time to time. They know they can’t win on the facts, so innuendo and smears are all they have. They can not win on policy and so they continue to push a false narrative in the hopes that someone other than their rabid followers will listen. If not, they can use it to rabble rouse the followers they do have in the chaotic and violent confrontation that they will make all the more prevalent.
Rolling Stone, certainly no far right publication and Matt Taibbi have a column describing theis Russia-Trump collusion story as mass hysteria. Going as far as to declare the Attorney General Jeff Sessions is a Russian partisan, Glenn Greenwald is a Russian Shill, and there are Russian moles amongst the FBI agents in New York. Media Matters Eric Boehlert wants to know what type of information the Russians have on Republican Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes. Even reporters are not immune. Matt McDermott, a pollster in the pocket of Democrats wants to know why reporters such as Michael Tracy and Zaid Jilani are not following the theme of the Progressive/socialist agenda.
Has journalism become so bad that if you disagree with the talking points of the progressive/socialists that you will be outed as a possible Russian agent. Will we continue to be accused as being Putin agents as 200 websites were by the Washington Post? Do they really think that one of their candidates standing in front of a crowd and declaring that the intelligence agencies have declared that his opponent is a Putin puppet will win elections?
Paul Manafort, a Trump associate and chair of the Trump campaign for a few months is still being vilified in the press even though the Trump campaign forced him out after allegations of corruption while working with the Ukraine former president Viktor Yanukovych. Removed well before the election and no part of the administration, the progressive/socialists continue to make Paul Manafort a story in the attempt to smear Trump. The fact that the allegations were from a time before Trump had him as a campaign manager doesn’t matter. There are those at the mainstream media that will declare this is proof of collusion.
The main theme of this Russian collusion story was started by a company called “Crowdstrike”. It was this company that the Democrat Party paid for and relied on for information related to the Russian-Trump collusion debacle that we are now engulfed in. Crowdstrike, tied to the Atlantic Council, a think tank funded by George Soros has accepted money in the past for favored policy positions based on promoting disinformation and propaganda. Even the New York Times has named the Atlantic Council as a group that take money from foreign interests to support various agenda around the world. The AP reported that the Atlantic Council has received funding from the Ploughshares Fund another Soros funded organization. Along with the company “Crowdstrike” the Atlantic Council has constantly and consistently claimed that Russia was responsible for hacking the 2016 election.
It was Crowdstrike that did the forensics on the DNC hacked computers, while the FBI was refused access to them. Former CIA Director Michael Morell, James Clapper, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have all stated that that is not and never has been any evidence of Russian hacking. Once again, the Democrats will continue to push a false narrative to attempt to bend the American people to an agenda that will only continue to get worse. The continued false claims, innuendo, and false attributions will only continue, and more and more of our citizens will see the left for what it is. An group of agitators using Alinsky tactics in the attempt to destroy the opposition by vilifying all those who disagree with the agenda that have laid out. There are no facts, debate points, of what is for the good of the American people, it is an agenda of pure, raw power that they seek.

The whole Russian hacking fake news is going too far and Obama is poking the bear in retaliation.
The White House is ready to retaliate against Russia for its supposed influence on the 2016 presidential election in the form of cyberattacks. Those responses will come in the form of sanctions and diplomacy, according to U.S. officials.
The actions are expected to include expanded sanctions and diplomatic measures, the officials said, in what the administration deems a proportional response to a Russian operation that went beyond cyber hacking activities common among nations.
John Brennan, makes it clear in his interview with NPR, that the actions against Russia is a bad idea.
The director of the Central Intelligence Agency, said the United States should not retaliate against Russian hacking.
“I don’t think we should resort to some of the tactics and techniques that our adversaries employ against us,” Brennan told NPR. “I think we need to remember what we’re fighting for. We’re fighting for our country, our democracy, our way of life, and to engage.
“And the skullduggery that some of our opponents and adversaries engage in, I think is beneath this country’s greatness.”
Brennan also discussed the war in Syria, saying he did not believe it was over despite the city of Aleppo being taken over by forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
“Aleppo’s fall, to me, is not a sign that there is going to be an end to this conflict because I am convinced that many, many of those oppositionists, the ones who are trying to reclaim their country for their families, for their neighbors, for their children, will continue to fight,” Brennan said.
“This insurgency is not going to go away until there is some type of viable and genuine political process that will bring to power in Damascus a government that is representative of the Syrian people and really will try to repair and recover from this awful war,” he added. Read More at: newsmax.com
Once again at Berkeley, it was shown to the American people who the real Nazis are. In a fit of childish outrage, a group of about 150 people with the faces covered created chaos on the campus. Starting fires, beating Trump supporters, destroying ATM’s, and even pepper spraying one lady who they felt might be a Trump supporter just for wearing a red hat is just showing how intolerant the “tolerant opposition” really is. It is nothing more that normalizing violence in the agenda to meet the ends the progressive/socialist want.
My family came to the United States in 1934 from Czechoslovakia. They saw the degeneracy, the intolerance a small minority of low IQ pedophiles and immorality that had become the culture of the true Nazis of the time. Speaking far and wide and abetted by a socialist media they talk to the need of “social justice” “white privilege” and “revolution”. What they really want is a degenerate world made to their liking.
The media, complicit in anything that will bring down Trump is facilitating the damage being done to our culture and the damage to property and victims of their riots. San Francisco papers, even this morning, are calling these peaceful protests even as the country has seen the pictures and knows better. They do not mention the fact that was shown in videos that rioters threw bricks and fired fireworks at the police, threw red paint on Trump supporters and lit a generator and light pole that the police had brought in on fire. They smashed windows, burned cars , and have called for the deaths of any Trump supporter or in the case of one Portland teacher associated with the Black lives Matter movement called on white to give to blacks all the property, money and houses in the possession of any white.
And then there is the latte sipping, ignorant, gated community living celebrities who think the are so politically in tune with America. Self important fools like Judd Apatow tweeting that this is just the beginning and adding “When will all the fools who are still supporting Trump realize what is at stake?
Hey Judd Boy. We do realize what is at stake. Get out of your cushy little area where all you do is talk about revolution over dinner at your favorite café and go out and work for a living. Get your hands dirty in Middle America where people actually work hard every day to make a living for their family. Those are the “real” people who know what is at stake. Your degeneracy and culture of drug use and pedophilia in Hollywood, you attitude of being better than the so called unwashed masses and looking down your nose at anyone not part of your clique would be an awakening of epic proportions. After years of lecturing the right about dangerous rhetoric that causes violence and blaming every act of violence on the right, at least until it was proven most attacks were by progressive/socialists, these same people are openly advocating violence in our entertainment, in our politics and in our classrooms. Gone are the days of reasonable debate, call discussions of alternative viewpoints, and respect. The individual has become expendable to the progressive agenda
Lexi Alexander, another filmmaker of low intelligence declared “punch a Nazi, riot when your college invites a Nazi and set it all on fire. Acting like a true Nazi, and not allowing those of a differing opinion to speak and truly what Naziism looked like. It is informative that most of those in Hollywood will speak out about how terrible our country is, and how much white people have destroyed it, look down their noses on non-Hollywood types and speak of how ignorant they are. How many of you have ever read the Constituion, or the Bill of rights, or even have idea about how government works? She makes a declaration that in case you doubt you should study History. If you do you will find that Lexi, Judd, and the rioters are acting just like the brownshirts of 1936-39. You want us to read History? Some of us already have, and some know people who have lives through the second World War. There is no difference between the anarchists and the sycophants that back them like you and the Gestapo of the second World War. I suppose you think you will survive the chaos you create, but you need to understand that there are enough patriots in this country to assure failure and those causing the anarchy to be help personally responsible. So please quit calling others Nazi when you are the epitome of what the Nazis were. I would not be surprised if you and your ilk learned the steps to take from George Soros, a Nazi collaborator. After all, it has been proven that Soros is financing the rioters.
And then there is David Harbour called for punching people who he feels are disenfranchising people to loud ovations from the crowd. By that he means those that the majority of the people in this country should work for a living and not just get a handout. He made quite a thunderous speech about accepting freaks and outcasts and those who have no home. Hey David, how about you take them into your home, your city. Think that will happen. He speaks of casual violence, but what was Berkeley if not casual violence? He speaks of heart, and soul, and joy and then calls for punching people in the face. Sir, you are a hypocrite, like much of Hollywood. Where is the closest homeless shelter to you, where are the nearest refugees to where you live, have you helped them, have ANY of you in Hollywood helped them? And I mean personally, not just throwing a pittance of your millions in their direction to some group.
There have been others who have called for violence against those that disagree with the progressive/socialist way of thinking. The agenda is all that matters, and it starts in the halls of Congress with Democrats boycotting hearing and SAN FRAN Nancy Pelosi going on a rant about the nomi8ness for the Supreme Court, stating this if you breathe, eat, need medical help this man is a danger. Such stupidity can only take place in someone elected in San Francisco. Of course, there were no examples to back up this diatribe, because there are none. But your Democrat party doesn’t care if it isn’t true, they will blather it enough so that low information voters and those on the dole will believe it, aided and abetted by a socialist media. This is the same media that justifies violence against Trump supporters, and has since the election, because they believe them to fascists, a term lightly used by these people with no idea of its meaning. Being in the pocket of the progressives/socialists that continually find anyone who disagrees with them as being eligible to have their rights violated. How long before these upstanding members of the Weimar Republic and their toadies in the media proclaim that all anarchists and rioter are beneficial to our country and they should actively go looking for the” Nazis” on the right? And what right does anyone have to demand that CEO’s of any company make known where they stand in politics? Kara Swisher, executive editor of Recode is doing precisely that I order to let the progressives know who the target of their destruction must be.
Hitler would be proud. George Soros learned his lessons well. The anarchists have the media, entertainment and academia under his control.
There will be violence in the future. Both the media and the anarchists will attempt anything they can to destroy this government and the culture that has made America what it is today.
The anarchists who created Berkeley and will create more violence must be stopped. They must be jailed, they must be prosecuted with domestic violence and incitement to riots. They should receive a jail sentence as long as legally possible. And those responsible for this incitement such as Janet Napolitano and chancellor Nicholas Birks should be jailed as well for creating an atmosphere where something like this would happen.
Something needs to done. There needs to be a way found to end the violence and get back to reasonable discussion over disagreements. I hope it happens soon. It probably won’t because the progressives/ socialist think the only way to win is through violence, and those in the Democrat Party are aiding this violence with all the talk of “Trump is Hitler” and obstructing all paths to a better understanding through slandering those that do not agree. After all, that is where the anarchists learned what they are doing now. All they are doing are turning people away from the Democrat party. Let’s hope that a way can be found to find a common ground before real bullets start to fly.
