HOBGOBLINS OF THE LEFT

When it suits their purposes, liberals like to roll out that creaky old adage about consistency being the hobgoblin of small minds. But the line in its entirety, as written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, is: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.”

Those on the Left would like us to believe that when they go, for instance, from reviling James Comey one day to adoring him the next, they have simply garnered additional information about the man and changed their opinion accordingly. None of that little-minded consistency for them!

But the truth is, the only thing that changed about Comey is that Donald Trump fired him. Because they despise the President more than I hate kale, anyone he attacks automatically becomes a political martyr worthy of sainthood.

That is the nature of their consistency. They are as predictable as the sunrise. If Donald Trump is in favor of lower taxes, they insist they be increased to record levels. When Barack liar-nObama indicated a willingness to sit down with dictators, they applauded his statesmanship; when Trump agrees to sit down with Kim Jong-un, their heads explode. When liar-Bill Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, a fugitive who had bilked American investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars, they yawned, turned over and went back to sleep. When Trump considers pardoning Gen. John Kelly, a man who had dedicated his life to defending America, their hair goes up in flames.

Or consider what happened to Roseanne Barr for pointing out that Valerie Jarrett, Barack liar-nObama’s gatekeeper, bore a certain resemblance to a gorilla, compared to what happened to Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump, whose only sin would seem to be that she’s related to the President, a vile obscenity. Ms. Barr had her top-rated show canceled by ABC in the blink of an eye, whereas that same evening, Ms. Bee was applauded at a TV awards event and honored for her political courage.

It’s also noteworthy that whereas the Left is always deeply concerned with collateral damage when it comes to our battling Islamic terrorism, the fact that the cancelation of “Roseanne” cost a hundred innocent people their jobs didn’t concern them in the least.

⦿  Perhaps nothing underscores Trump Derangement Syndrome more than the fact that porn slut Stormy Daniels and her sleazy mouthpiece Michael Avenatti were able to raise $550,000 for legal expenses from America’s most obliging pinheads.

⦿  Until I read an article in an old copy of The New American, I hadn’t been aware that there is a worldwide movement devoted to aborting Down Syndrome babies.

There is a part of me that can understand and even empathize with parents who don’t wish to undertake the raising of a mentally-handicapped human being. And, yet, people suffering from the disease always seem to be smiling and happy. They take pride in accomplishing those tasks they are able to master and seem to be, without exception, friendly with strangers and affectionate with their family members.

We’ve all been touched by the video of the competitors at a Special Olympics who all stop running when one of them falls during the race. They all help him to his feet and then link arms so that they cross the finish line tied for first.

I have had more experience with these people than most. Years ago, because a producer wanted me to write a TV movie about a Down Syndrome teenager, I researched the subject and got to meet several of them. They were all very sweet and polite. I don’t mind mentioning that I had a very different experience when I sat in on a support group meeting of homosexuals for another TV project I had been signed to write. For reasons that never make sense, neither movie wound up being green lighted by the network, but I was only disappointed in the first instance.

Years later, Yvonne and I wound up living next door to a group home for Down Syndrome victims. There were half a dozen of them ranging in age from late teens to mid-20s. There was an older woman who oversaw the house, but the guys all held down jobs and were proud of that fact. Again, they were very nice, very helpful and extremely appreciative of every bit of neighborliness that came their way.

That’s why I am so angry to hear that in Iceland, the abortion rate for embryos found to have Down Syndrome is 100%; in England, 90%.

One can’t help thinking that Margaret Sanger, the satanic founder of Planned Parenthood, whose theory of eugenics was turned into state policy by Adolf Hitler, would be so very glad to hear the news.

Interestingly enough, Jerome Lejeune, the French geneticist who discovered the chromosomal premise for Down Syndrome, acknowledged that there was a price to be paid by those who had it and by their parents. But as a devout Christian, he went on: “But we can assign a value to that price. It is precisely what a society must pay to remain fully human.”

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.”
