Former FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence  Committee this Thursday. The progressive/socialist Democrats will use it as a cudgel against our President no matter what Comey says.

These self same Trump-Russia colluded sycophants are silent on the many incompetencies being shown by the FBI under James Comey. The terrorist cases brought to the FBI under Comey  led to virtually nothing. This is the same FBI that purged all training materials concerning Islam and has ignored organizations such as MOA, commonly called “Jamaat al-Fuqra” and the camps they run throughout the country. (http://intellectualconservative.com/the-enemies-among-us-part-1/  http://intellectualconservative.com/the-enemies-among-us-part-2/)

And they have also refused to investigate terror inciting mosques or even to cut off funding to these mosques. Comey has made a public statement about the FBI investigating ISIS terrorists in all 50 states, and I have to wonder how may will belike Garland Texas, when an FBI agent followed a terrorist to a Pamela Gellar event, and did nothing but drive away when the terrorists was shot by a vigilant local officer. The FBI has been careful about not offending Muslims for too long. The FBI as the principal law enforcement agency in this country can not afford to live under political correctness.

One of the multiple reasons that Comey was fired  was because he continued to keep open an investigation of Russian collusion that has shown no factual basis. Those who condemn this investigation include The New York Times , House Speaker Paul Ryan, Former DNI James Clapper, Rep. Adam Schiff, Senator Dianna Feinstein, Senator Joe Manchin, Senator Chuck Grassley,  and many other on both sides of the aisle.

Other than the entire debacle of the FBI Investigation into Hillary Clinton which led to condemnation by both Republicans and Democrats, there are other questionable actions taken by the former FBI Director. The counter-intel investigation actually started in July of 2016 but was not disclosed to the Congress until March 2017. Comey was aware of the politicization of DNI James Clapper and his use of an intelligence firewall. This is the same DNI who lied to Congress about the extensive collection of metadata on the American People, and along with CIA Director John Brennan admitted to spying on the Senate Intelligence Agency.

The question that Comey should be asked is this. If Comey launched the counter-intel operation in July of 2016, what was the purpose. The only answer that makes sense is the White House and James Clapper knew and were using this investigation for political purposes. Even to this day Comey and his holdovers at the FBI refuse to allow the House Intelligence Community to review documents that may show who the leakers are.

Can anyone explain why in September 2016 Comey received $6 million from Lockheed Martin. Or why Comey is now a board member, director and committee member for HSBC.  Both of these organizations are Clinton Foundation donors. Peter Comey,   James Comey brother, held a senior Director for DLA Piper which Is one of the largest Clinton’s campaign donors and also audited the Clinton Foundation.

James Comey finds himself in an untenable position. Comey or one of his friends in the FBI leaked a memo to the New York Times by reading an excerpt from a memorandum that no one has seen and can not be verified.  Democrats avidly believe that President Trump attempted to coerce the then sitting FBI Director into dropping the Michael Flynn case as purportedly stated in this memo. If that was the case, Director Comey was required by law to inform the Department of Justice. Failure to do so is a felony under Federal law. (18USC4 and 28USC1361)

If the discussion of Flynn did not constitute coercion, then there was no crime. The next step is to see the memo, and perhaps needs to be subpoenaed to do nothing more than to seek the validity of what is in it. If he wants to allege criminality on the part of President Trump, he will find that it will implicate him in malfeasance.

With his meeting with the Senate Intelligence Committee looming, James Comey has now refused formally to answer any questions submitted to him by a bi-partisan group of senators from the Senate Judiciary Committee. Comey is claiming that as a “private citizen” he declines to answer any questions. Perhaps he doesn’t realize that these same questions are what the American are demanding answers for.

The House Judiciary Committee is the government organization responsible for the oversight of the Justice Department and FBI, and yet Comey refuses to answer valid questions or even discuss these questions with the House Judiciary Committee which requested he voluntarily come before the committee.

These questions were provided to Comey in anticipation of his testimony on Thursday:

  1. Did you discuss with anyone outside of the Justice Department and interactions you had with President Trump or Obama?
  2. Did you create any memos about interactions you had during the Obama or Trump administrations with the Deputy Attorney General, Attorney General, or the President regarding the investigations of Trumps associates allege coconnections with Russia or the Clinton E mail investigations?
  3. Have you discussed any such memos or their contents with anyone outside the Justice Department?
  4. Did you copy and share copies of any such memos woth anyone outside the Justice Department?
  5. Have you retained copies of such memos or have access to them?

It would surprise no one if Comey becomes very selective in his responses to the House Intelligence Committee to show a one sided story. It will be difficult to obtain responses to questions such as sharing NSA information with third parties and the  monitoring of attorney-client conversations as exposed by Circa.

Thursday will be interesting. It will be informative to see how Comey responds to questions from those on the committee, and also interesting about how the “Fakestream Media”  spins it. We already know all the progressive/socialist Democrats will pull even the silliest and smallest morsel that they can to bash Trump. The questions that the American people care about are jobs, the economy, and terrorism. Once again this will be blown up to hide the achievements of this administration.  They have every intention of keeping the false narrative of Trump-Russian collusion going until the next election.  It has been proven time again and that it is a false narrative. All the Democrats have agreed that the only narrative needed is “Stop Trump” and that will not be recognized by the American People as moving the country forward.

The only item in here that Comey might not be guilty of is:  rewriting military manuals removing "islamic terrorist" out of all of them. From what I have read, the guilty person who did that was an islamist who was appointed by our dear 0fraud and imposter, who made sure he laced these militant bastards throughout the top levels of our government. I had his name but cannot find my list of all the muslimes that 0 appointed.

Of everything else, he sure is guilty, including the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$that he made off Clinton.

He is a crook and deserves hanging or the firing squad, and I need some target practice. Too many investigations and committees, who don't do a thing. Well, something had better come of this one.

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
