Jordan - Deadline for Docs Passed Again - 
Still Just Threatening to Impeach Rosenstein
{ } ~ Congressman Jim Jordan was asked by Neil Cavuto for his thoughts on the release of the IG report on Coup orchestrator and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe... He runs down the list of people fired or demoted and reassigned in the time that the corruption has been learned of, saying, “Obviously there are big problems at the top levels of the FBI,” that the report simply confirmed what they already knew. Jordan says the White House has been very clear that they don’t intend to fire Robert Mueller. Rosenstein, on the other hand, appears to be kneeling before the chopping block. Jordan lists a few of the conflicts and compromised positions of Rosenstein, saying, “If you want a great example of the swamp,” it’s the tangled mess between Mueller, Rosenstein and Comey. Cavuto recaps the actions of the criminals McCabe and Comey in their public attacks on President Trump, and the information contradicting them being presented by the Inspector General, saying, “You do have to sympathize a tad with the President who says, ‘They really are out to get him.'”...
NeverTrumps Protect Mob Boss Robert Mueller
by Daniel John Sobieski } ~ In an act of delicious irony, James "The Liar" Comey will remind us on 20/20 that in his new book... A Higher Loyalty, he compares President Trump and his alleged demands for loyalty to that required by a crime boss.  Comey writes: "The demand was like Sammy the Bull's Cosa Nostra induction ceremony," referring to Salvatore "Sammy the Bull" Gravano, a former leader of the Gambino crime family, whose testimony ultimately helped convict mob boss John Gotti. This extension of his 15 minutes of fame to 20/20 comes soon after the man he got appointed as special counsel, Robert Mueller, shredded the 4th Amendment to the Constitution and the attorney-client privilege by raiding the offices of Trump attorney Michael Cohen looking for anything that might justify Mueller's existence after a failed Russia collusion investigation, taking everything except the towels in Cohen's hotel room...  
FNC’s Gregg Jarrett: ‘Nothing 
Resembling The Truth’ In James Comey Book
by Joe Newby And Jeff Dunetz
{ } ~ The New York Times and CNN seem to love a new book written by fired FBI Director James Comey... but Gregg Jarrett, a legal and political analyst for Fox News, isn’t impressed. After reading the tome, he slammed it as having “no demonstrable truth,” calling it “fiction” and “fantasy.” “I obtained a copy of Comey’s book,” he said. “I’m halfway through, but so far there is nothing resembling the truth. I’ll keep searching for something other than self-adoration and puffery. So far, there is no demonstrable truth. Which puts a lie to the title of the book.” After he finished reading the book, titled “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” he added, “I’ve finished reading Comey’ book It’s an easy and superficial read. I saw nothing that was true. I can only conclude that Comey’s version of events is fantasy. It is fiction. Things will end badly for Comey. He stole government documents.”... 
Vice President Dick Cheney ‘Grateful’ 
For Trump’s Pardon Of Former Aide, Scooter Libby
{ } ~ Former Vice President Dick Cheney issued a warm statement in support of President Donald Trump’s pardon... for his former aide Scooter Libby. “Scooter Libby is one of the most capable, principled, and honorable men I have ever known. He is innocent, and he and his family have suffered for years because of his wrongful conviction. I am grateful today that President Trump righted this wrong by issuing a full pardon to Scooter, and I am thrilled for Scooter and his family,” he said in a statement to The Daily Caller. Trump pardoned Libby Friday afternoon with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying “the President believes Mr. Libby is fully worthy of this pardon. “I don’t know Mr. Libby,” said President Trump, “but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly. Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life.” Libby expressed great appreciation to Trump saying “for over a dozen years we have suffered under the weight of a terrible injustice. President Trump recognized this wrong and wold not let it persist.” Where Bush on this?

Comey Outs Himself as a Partisan Hack 
by Political Editors:  Former FBI Director James Comey has been drinking Potomac swamp water for much too long.

               As part of his pre-release promotions for his book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, mainstream media outlets are providing Comey millions in free advertising. Predictably, most of the commentary disparaged President Donald Trumpas a dangerous liar, while defending Comey’s exoneration of liar-Hillary Clinton, even though he claimed she was “grossly negligent.” As NBC News headlined it, “Comey…paints Trump as a liar divorced from reality.
               Clearly, Comey was and remains a “Trump hater,” much as his fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and investigators  Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who attempted to ensure liar-Clinton would win. He aims to defame Trump and exonerate himself after he was fired last year. To that end, Comey notes a tearful Oval Office meeting with Barack liar-nObama after the 2016 election, when liar-nObama affirmed his confidence in Comey. “Boy, were those words I needed to hear,” Comey told liar-nObama, adding, “I dread the next four years.
               As for his overarching disapproval of Trump: “This President is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values. His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty.
               Regarding his motive for writing his book: “It is also wrong to stand idly by, or worse, to stay silent when you know better, while a president brazenly seeks to undermine public confidence in law enforcement institutions that were established to keep our leaders in check.”
               There are plenty of rebuttals to Comey’s disapproval of Trump, and his axe-grinding motivation, however, the book is devoid of any “bombshell” revelations.
               In a telling excerpt, Comey defends his investigation into liar-Clinton’s email abuse from accusations of bias by liar-Hillary supporters who insist that former Secretary of State Colin Powell also used private emails. Comey writes, “In fact, it entirely misses the point. I have never seen any indication that Powell discussed on his AOL account information that was classified at the time, but there were numerous examples of Secretary liar-Clinton having done so.” So once again the question is raised: Why did Comey decide to let liar-Clinton off the hook  twice?
               The answer may be inferred from another revealing excerpt. Comey explains why he decided 11 days before the election to reopen the liar-Clinton email investigation, a decision that liar-Hillary has blamed (along with a litany of others) for her election loss. In a particularly damning passage, Comey basically admits the political nature of his decision: “It is entirely possible that, because I was making decisions in an environment where liar-Hillary Clinton was sure to be the next president, my concern about making her an illegitimate president by concealing the restarted investigation bore greater weight than it would have if the election appeared closer or if Donald Trump were ahead in all polls.” How exactly does this admission by the nation’s former chief law man give Americans any confidence that those running the FBI aren’t making decisions politically and capriciously rather than by the Rule of Law?
               This is the deep state at its worst, where individuals are so caught up in their own self-importance and views of how things “should” be that they are willing to ignore and bend the rules in order to bring about the “good.” In essence, it is the manifestation of that Machiavellian standard of the ends justifying the means. And that is anything but just.   ~The Patriot Pos

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.
