DRAINING THE SWAMP

Regrettably, in spite of his best intentions, there is only so much that President Trump can do when it comes to draining the Potomac swamp. Fortunately, a few of the swamp critters have already packed their bags. I specifically have rino-Jeff Flake and Paul Ryan in mind.

I’ll give House Speaker Ryan credit for helping to get the tax reform bill passed, but he is far too easy-going for the job he has. A person in a leadership role has to know how to crack a whip. Break with the President’s agenda and at the very least you’re supposed to lose committee chairmanships and corner offices.

While it’s true that Democrats rarely think for themselves, I guarantee that if any of them gave an inch when it came to tax cuts, Trump’s wall or sanctuary cities and states, they’d be quickly taken out to the woodshed by Chuck clown-Schumer or Nancy Pulosi and introduced to the business end of a hickory stick.

As for rino-Jeff Flake, I suspect the only reason he chose to run as a Republican in the first place was that he looked around and decided that if rino-John McCain was Arizona’s idea of a Republican, that must be what he was, too.

⦿  We are, unfortunately, on the verge of losing a first-rate congressman. It is why I wrote back to the White House after they returned the five-dollar check I wanted President Trump to use as seed money to get his big, beautiful wall built through public subscription.

Because I assumed I was more likely to reach his Special Assistant than I was to reach Donald Trump directly, I wrote: “Dear Ms. Thompson: I appreciate the response from you and the President to my contribution and my suggestion that it be used to kick off the campaign to get the wall built.

“Having failed in that attempt, I am disappointed, but not deflated. I have a second suggestion to make. I believe President Trump would be well-advised to make Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal permanent by replacing him with Trey Gowdy.

“Mr. Gowdy, who has already announced he will be departing from the House at the end of his current term, is simply too intelligent, competent and dedicated to the Constitution, to allow his unique talents to be squandered in the private sector.

“He would be the perfect antidote to Jeff Sessions, who dithers around like an old woman and who opened the door to Robert Mueller’s witch hunt by shirking his responsibilities. Sincerely, Burt Prelutsky”

⦿  Because he was positive that he smelled marijuana after making a traffic stop, a New Jersey state trooper strip-searched the male driver. The search, caught on the officer’s dashcam as well as his body camera, showed Trooper Joseph Drew putting his hands into the man’s underpants, groping the guy’s buttocks and his genitalia for several minutes, while a parade of gawkers drove past on the highway.

As it turned out, no drugs were found in the man’s car or in any of his potential hiding places. The cop wound up citing the poor guy for tailgating, of all things.

A lawsuit is in the works.

In related news, when asked what his current plans are now that his acting career has gone off the tracks thanks to his sexcapades with underage males, Kevin Spacey is rumored to have said he was thinking of spending the next few months tailgating on the New Jersey turnpike.

⦿  One of the constant traits of liberals is their lack of introspection. They never pause to ask themselves or each other whether it’s even possible that those who disagree with them just might be right when it comes to closing the border and ending chain migration.

As for guns, it constantly amazes me that liberals fail to recognize and acknowledge that if the feds disarm decent, law-abiding citizens, it will inevitably increase the chance that they and their friends will be victimized by bad people with guns.

The fact that they – especially those we’re constantly told will be the nation’s future leaders -- march in lockstep, parrot left-wing slogans and never question any statement, no matter how inane, expressed by commie-Bernie Sanders, Chris Matthews, mad-Maxine Waters, Jimmy Kimmel or Elizabeth dinky-Warren, bodes badly for America.

It’s because the boobs never really question any of their pre-digested talking points that they become so angry, tongue-tied and frustrated, when they’re challenged by their intellectual superiors. All they can do is lash out and call their opponents racists, fascists, sexists, bullies, Nazis, homophobes and Islamophobes.

I believe it was Ronald Reagan who first observed how little liberals actually know, and how much that they think they know is wrong.

ALERT ALERT

Hillary Clinton Was Not Formally Under
FBI Investigation At Any Time In 2015-2016

On Tuesday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified in a joint Congressional hearing to the House Oversight and House Judiciary panels about his review of the FBI’s (mis)handling of the Clinton email investigation.

House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) came out swinging Tuesday in a a joint hearing held by the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees.

Gowdy ripped into Comey in his opening statement, stating, “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.”

Investigative journalist Paul Sperry reported Horowitz dropped a bombshell in his testimony.

Horowitz revealed the FBI never named a target or even a subject in the Clinton email probe!

Sperry tweeted: BREAKING: IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. “Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time,” adding this was “surprising” for a crim probe

So neither Hillary nor her top aides were formally under investigation by the FBI at any time in 2015-2016, tweeted Sperry.

BREAKING: Horowitz revealed that Hillary was never really under formal investigation, never listed by FBI as a "subject" of investigation.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton reacted to this bombshell bias from the FBI.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

.@RealDonaldTrump is a subject, but Hillary Clinton was never a "subject." Outrageous. Shut the Strzok-Page-Comey-McCabe-Lynch-Yates-Glenn Simpson-Steele-Brennan-Fusion GPS-Muller special counsel "stop @realDonaldTrump" investigation down.

tigation’ into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server was a complete sham.

No subjects were named, immunity was handed out like candy and Hillary was exonerated before witnesses were interviewed, including Hillary Clinton herself.

Hillary Clinton’s ‘interview’ with the FBI wasn’t even under oath.

Even more egregious, Hillary discussed pregnancy and babies during the majority of the 2.5 hour FBI interview because one of her lawyers was pregnant at the time.

Inspector General Horowitz also testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Targeting Of Tea Party Groups
John McCain’s Staff Director Urged Lois Lerner
And IRS To Engage In “Financially Ruinous”

Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch obtained IRS documents Thursday revealing backstabber Senator John McCain’s former staff director urged the IRS, including the corrupt Lois Lerner to engage in “financially ruinous” targeting of conservative Tea Party groups.

And they did.

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

  • Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
  • At least 5 pro-Israel groups
  • Constitutional groups
  • Groups that criticized Obama administration
  • At least two pro-life groups
  • An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
  • A 180 year-old Baptist paper
  • A Texas voting-rights group
  • A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
  • Conservative activists and businesses
  • At least one conservative Hispanic group
  • IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
  • And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were
  • Conservative

Now this…

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.

Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”

In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”

Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton had this to say about the newly obtained IRS documents showing more proof the agency was weaponized under Obama:

“The Obama IRS scandal is bipartisan – McCain and Democrats who wanted to regulate political speech lost at the Supreme Court, so they sought to use the IRS to harass innocent Americans. The Obama IRS scandal is not over – as Judicial Watch continues to uncover smoking gun documents that raise questions about how the Obama administration weaponized the IRS, the FEC, FBI, and DOJ to target the First Amendment rights of Americans.”
