The Secret Society

The progressive media is in hyper drive lately and doing their level best to paint the Trump administration and the GOP as a DANGER to our democracy by even questioning the integrity of the vaunted FBI. In fact former RNC chair and faux conservative Michael Steele was celebrated by the progressive media when he chimed in and said that Trump would “rue the day” he questioned the FBI. Faux conservatives and progressive pundits alike are mocking the Trump administration and dialing up the hysteria of the dangers to our republic, our standing in the world, the possibilities of war, and so and so on ……… WHY you ask? Because the noose is tightening on them and their empty cries of wolf are unsubstantiated and starting to go unnoticed, and that is what has them terrified.

But let’s just review a brief summary of the FBI’s “integrity” over the last year so we can all get a sense of who actually does pose a danger to our republic. First of all, AG Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton in June in Phoenix while his wife Hillary was under investigation. When asked why he was in Phoenix in June, Clinton replied that he was golfing. NO ONE GOLFS IN PHOENIX IN JUNE. The average temp is 110 degrees. Shortly after that meeting, the narrative of the investigation was changed from “investigation” to a “matter”. Secondly, despite the litany of obvious crimes related to the private unsecured server Hillary chose to use for her StateSec position, FBI director James Comey exonerated Hillary clearing her path to run against Trump. That exoneration followed the interviews of Hillary, Huma Abedin, and Cheryl Mills by FBI agent Peter Strzok, who has been exposed as a philanderer and purely partisan hack with a healthy disdain for Trump, and of whom changed the accusations leveled against Hillary from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless”. Additionally, Mr. Strzok and a handful of other FBI agents of “integrity” used a paid for and purely manufactured oppo research document, compiled by Russians, to secure FISA warrants to spy on private American citizens in the hopes of destroying a POTUS candidate, and/or to use as a basis to impeach should POTUS candidate win the election – “an insurance policy” if you will. Now this is just a brief and woefully incomplete summary of the issue which goes much deeper, but just a surface review of the FBI’s actions in this matter should alarm everyone. The fact is – the Obama’s and the Clinton’s weaponized the IRS, the EPA, the DOJ, the FBI, and every other agency they could to destroy their political opponents and retain power for generations. And that my friends is the real SECRET SOCIETY, and now the media has the unsavory work of trying to cover all this up ….. hence the hysteria.

For the record:

    We’re literally getting into the stuff of political intrigue and spy novels. All that’s left is for key players to start suffering suspicious deaths. The biggest problem I see is that the Justice Department and the FBI have become incredibly corrupted, and Congress has no law enforcement authority. Congressional committees get the proverbial middle finger when they subpoena records from the FBI. So who arrests the people who are supposed to be the ones tasked with enforcing the laws? That is, to me, one of the few flaws in our representative republic system of government, and I’m not sure it’s reconcilable absent an illegal mechanism like the Star Chamber or a violent revolution. The only recourse we as voters have is the ballot box, but a disproportionate number of the corrupt officials are not elected, and the vast majority of elected representatives are covertly glad to have unaccountable people acting to further their agenda.

      …..a disproportionate number of the corrupt officials are not elected, and the vast majority of elected representatives are covertly glad to have unaccountable people acting to further their agenda.

      And that is THE problem. Unelected and unaccountable. BY DESIGN

    • Amazona January 25, 2018 / 11:33 am

      However, the Department of Justice and therefore all federal law enforcement are in the Executive Branch and under the control of the President. So it is possible for the President to remove corrupt people and appoint new ones, from the Attorney General on down. I have a feeling that if the top guys get the axe, preferably all at once in a press conference, most under them will go along to keep from being in the second wave of firings.

      I would love to see a press conference called with enough intrigue to make sure all the media are there, and then have the President say something to the effect of “After consulting with law enforcement officials from all branches of law enforcement, lawyers and others knowledgeable about the law, I have drawn up a list of federal officials I believe have not properly executed the requirements of their respective offices. Therefore, here is a list of those who are, as of this moment, relieved of their duties and no longer hold the positions with which they were trusted. Specific information regarding the failures or wrongdoings of each will be made public later today in a separate press release, as allowed by privacy laws and potential legal actions when appropriate. Appointments to positions considered necessary to be filled immediately will be announced in a separate press release. Other positions will be filled as quickly as possible, with the clear understanding that federal officials are hired to serve the people, not personal or partisan political interests. As investigations proceed, others will be included in the list of people who have betrayed the trust of the American citizens in failing to properly do their jobs and uphold and defend the Constitution and the rule of law, and they, too, will be removed from their positions.”

      And then start naming names. It should be grouped according to agency, starting with the FBI, going on to the IRS and the BLM, and it should be a fairly long list. During the press conference each person named would have his or her desk cleaned out, passwords changed, access codes changed, etc. If Mueller is on the list, for his prior misdeeds, he would then have to be replaced due to conflict of interest.

      If we could manage to figure out how to coordinate communications, an instantaneous release of comments, “leaks” and explanations should be planned, to get ahead of the wholly predictable squeals of outrage—-including legal opinions and citations, rulings on firings for cause, citation of the Constitution’s description of the duties and authority of the President, etc. and talking heads lined up for as many TV and radio shows as possible to flood the airways in the following week.

      Sometimes the best way to drain a swamp is to bring in a bulldozer and blast your way through it and clear a pathway for new water to flow in.

    An apparent lack of proof-reading aside, Kurt Schlichter has a hillarious piece at TownHall this morning.

    There’s finally optimism and hope out there again. The #Winning USA – the one no one under 40 has experienced in his/her/xer adult life – is back in black and on the attack. It’s everything we normal Americans love, and it’s everything the Democrats hate.

    So, thought the Democrats, how do we turn these terrible trends around and get back to malaise, where we liberals can really shine?

    Just a couple weeks ago, the Dems were giddy about how they were totally going to ride a tsunami into the midterms and take back the House and maybe even the Senate. The ballot preference numbers for the GOP were uglier than an unshaven Womyn’s Studies professor in a V-hat.

    But then America’s success intervened.

    See, that’s the problem when you’re invested in America’s failure. When America succeeds, you fail. And America has not yet been sufficiently fundamentally transformed onto one of those Third World Schumerholes that it defaults to failure.

    From the State Department:

    Guatemala is consistently ranked among the most violent countries in the world, and in 2009 reported more civilians deaths than war-torn Iraq. Poverty, easy access to firearms, an endemic gang problem and weak police force are all contributing factors, the US State Department says.

    According to Democrats, Guatemala is not a schumerhole. Of course Democrats also govern Chicago, so ………..

    Now that the Dems are suddenly the party of moral rectitude, standing up strong against sexual exploitation and abuse of women, swooning in horror over a p***y comment by a man who later ran for president (while proudly strutting around in graphically named p***y hats, but that’s different, somehow…) some of them find themselves in kind of a bind—like getting caught taking tens of thousands of dollars from a web site (Backpage) known to be enabling of, at the very least, prostitution, sexual exploitation and human trafficking including including that of children.

    And in Colorado, at least, those upright Dems don’t wanna give it back.

    Despite raking in $70,000, more than any other state party, the Colorado Democratic Party has said nothing about whether it plans to unload the dirty money, even as #MeToo continues to sweep the nation, and even as scandal continues to plague Backpage. To add another layer, five Democrats are currently battling it out for their party’s state attorney general nomination, an office in which they would oversee investigations of human trafficking and sexual exploitation, crimes Backpage is alleged to have facilitated. (Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., for instance, brought pimping charges against three Backpage executives while she served as attorney general of California.)

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/colorado-democrats-silent-on-contributions-from-backpage-executives/article/2646944

    OK, I understand why they don’t want to give the money back. What I want to know is why this state, this organization, caught the eye of these degenerates. More to the point, what did they hope to accomplish by getting more Democrats elected in Colorado? Dems have really liked having lapdog governors in the state, but why would a pimping magazine care?

    Other state Dem party coffers benefited from the attention of these purveyors of sexual degredation, including Arizona and New Mexico. Western states, all. I just have to wonder what their goal might have been. A better question might be, why Colorado Dems are so indifferent to the source of their funding?

    Rachel Maddow is smart, right? I mean that’s what we’re told:

    “If there is an obstruction of justice case to make against this president for the firing of James Comey, there are six people on the list that we know of who were in on the evidence … of those six, four of them have now been ousted or sidelined at the FBI and smeared by the White House and Republicans.” -Rachel Maddow

    How can there be obstruction of justice when there is no crime in the first place? The POTUS has every right to fire the FBI director, and there is no evidence of any collusion…….so where’s the obstruction Rachel?

    • Amazona January 25, 2018 / 9:56 pm

      Oh, now, Cluster, don’t be so picky. In Loony Libland, a lot of rules are suspended. For example, there are the people associated with the Clinton email mess who were given immunity, when Comey hissownself said there shouldn’t even be a prosecution. So—–immunity from what? In exchange for what? In real life, when a law enforcement agency wants evidence or testimony about a crime they are investigating, they will sometimes offer immunity to one of the parties involved in exchange for testimony about someone else involved. But here the law enforcement officials said there was no crime (just a couple of silly mistakes, nothing to see here folks) so what was the reason for granting immunity? And for what testimony, regarding what non-crime?

      So of course it makes sense to the same people to claim someone obstructed justice in a situation where there was no investigation going on (according to the very guy whose firing supposedly constitutes said obstruction) and there was no indictment and no case and no charges filed.

      “In on” what evidence? Of what?

      Somehow MadCow has pulled off one of the most magical tricks in the media, convincing some people that she is really really smart. I guess if you look like you have a stick up your donkey all the time and are mean as a rattlesnake, that means you must be pretty smart, right?

    I already shared this with Amazona, but I got to thinking that all the Conservatives who post here would probably get a chuckle from it.

    I was on my way out after my workout at the Y yesterday, and a guy I’ve mentioned before on the blog, probably one of the few Liberals in Columbia City, Indiana, caught up with me in the lobby. I used to get into some pretty heated discussions with him in the locker room. I haven’t seen him in a while because I usually go in the morning, and he now goes in the afternoon, but yesterday I went after lunch while my wife was next door playing bridge. Anyway, he says, “so, ya tired of Trump yet?” I told him, “no, I think Trump is a breath of fresh air compared to the Commie, Muslim, Mulato piece of shit that he replaced.” His jaw about hit the floor, and then I heard clapping. I turned around and the two ladies behind the counter we applauding, along with an older gentleman standing at the counter. Made my day — hell, it made my year.

    • M. Noonan January 25, 2018 / 11:52 pm

      LOL – but the liberals are living in their own world on this. Guy I know at work – nice guy – he’s a big, ol’ Trump hater…he’s absolutely convinced that indictments are already in the works for Kushner and Don, Jr and that President Trump is sweating bullets. It is what they believe because they really are entirely in a bubble, now. Used to be, their MSM outlets would at least give them a peak at reality…now, there’s nothing. If you watch, you’re watching a world were Donald Trump is leading alt-right Nazis into tyranny but a heroic special counsel and Resistance is just about to get him. Any day now. Promise.

      I do wonder how long they can keep it up? They did keep pretty consistent against Bush, but at least there the war started going badly and there was some new fuel on the fire…can’t see much but peace and prosperity staring our Progs in the face for the next few years.

    If you watch, you’re watching a world were Donald Trump is leading alt-right Nazis into tyranny but a heroic special counsel and Resistance is just about to get him.

    I watch, and you are correct. In fact, I have never seen this level of deflection and denial on the part of the media. They are frothing at the mouth with HATRED towards this President and with absolutely zero regard as to how their reporting and hatred effects the country. Today on The Mimbo Show (The Bimbo must be tired – she works so hard) they are defending the “rank and file” men and women of the FBI against the “vicious authoritarian attacks” against them, along with continuing to push the narrative the constitutional crisis that would ensue should Trump fire Mueller. Now keep in mind, there is NO indication that Trump will fire Mueller, but that doesn’t stop them from spending 2 or 3 hours discussing it. However, considering that Mueller is finding a lot of dirt on them and the Democrats, they are probably quietly praying that Trump does fire Mueller.

    I LOVED Spook’s story and have to think that that scenario is playing out all across this country as conservatives of all stripes are finding the courage to push back – thanks to Trump.

  10. Cluster January 26, 2018 / 8:28 am

    So I am not the only one who gets a kick out of The Mimbo and THE Bimbo Show. It seems that Daily Caller also appreciates the delusion. The following is the most recent rant from The Mimbo:

    “And we talked about this yesterday, today, somewhere in your state, somewhere definitely in your country, there are FBI agents that are going around, that are trying to gain intel, they’re trying to get information, they’re trying to break apart terror networks of home grown terror networks that want to blow up your church, that want to blow up your synagogue that want to kill you or your family or other people in your community and it is these FBI agents who stand between you, me, all of us and future terror attacks, either by members of ISIS that infiltrate this country, or by homegrown terrorists,” Scarborough rambled. “When these conspiracy theories are spread, for political reason and solely political reasons to protect the president who is not worth your protection with your lives, you are only making it more difficult for our law enforcement officers to protect your family and mine against Islamic terrorism, and homegrown terrorism that you supposedly fear so much.

    We should actually applaud Joe for admitting that our borders are unsecured and that Islamists do want to kill Americans. But don’t tell him that ….. just wind him up and let him continue the narrative that according to Joe, high ranking FBI officials using manufactured oppo research to attack a POTUS candidate is NOT a threat to our republic, but the President’s consideration to fire a partisan government official IS a threat to our republic.

    • Amazona January 26, 2018 / 9:41 am

      I guess I missed the part where the upper echelons of the FBI named in the memo are spending their time infiltrating terror groups and protecting the lives of Americans. What I remember is the many times there were comments that the agents in the field were not only doing good work but were offended by, and hampered by, the antics at the top.

      But Joey and the Bimbo seem to have inside info about Mueller, Comey et al putting their lives on the line for us all. Maybe they ought to share. I think it’s clear that to these people the salvation of the Republic as it was supposed to be governed is the real threat. It’s a sign of how far the Left has come in compromising our Constitutional form of government and respect for the country that they can openly advocate overthrowing a legitimately elected President. Trump’s Davos speech, identifying the illegality and short future of the Left’s efforts to change our entire form of government by shifting power to those unelected bureaucrats has to have them quivering in their boots—-therefore, the amplified whimpering from Joey.

      As for me, I’m still trying to wrap my head around an image of 6’8″ pasty white baby faced Comey infiltrating a mosque…….

  11. Cluster January 26, 2018 / 9:13 am

    This is NOT reported on by most media outlets. Now, imagine if this headline read like this:

    ‘Obama is a danger to the world’: Billionaire Donald Trump attacks the President in blistering Davos speech – but adds he expects he will ‘disappear sooner than 2016’

    Do you suppose the media would cover that?

      The media would have had a collective meltdown, called him a racist and tried to get him prosecuted for threatening the life of the president.

      One interesting factoid: So far, at least, Trump has not been responsible for crashing the economy of any country. I am always amazed that anyone pays any attention to Soros, whose bias is as blatant as his criminality.

  13. Amazona January 26, 2018 / 10:40 am

    I just happened upon an article I referred to in an earlier post, when we were talking about whether or not a country could be called a s**thole.

    Here is a quote, from an article by a former Peace Corp worker.

    “Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, ‘a fecalized environment,’” McQuillan wrote.

    “In plain English: s— is everywhere. People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water. He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water. Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.”

    https://conservativetribune.com/peace-corps-volunteer-trump

    Maybe it’s just me, but I think “a fecalized environment” is just a ten-dollar phrase for “s**thole”.

  15. Amazona January 26, 2018 / 1:23 pm

    This is a comment on a Blaze article. The article is about a teenager who decided not to have an abortion, so the comment is only peripherally about it,but it is interesting, a blood-runs-cold kind of way. It is interesting that it comes from Slate, the uber-Left web site, and of course it has to have its mandatory effort to smear “the religious right” and its “craziness” for thinking babies are people, but the second and third paragraphs are what makes me think the Left is no longer teetering on the abyss but has plunged in with glee.

    http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/human_nature/2012/03/after_birth_abortion_the_pro_choice_case_for_infanticide_.html

    Just when you thought the religious right couldn’t get any crazier, with its personhood amendments and its attacks on contraception, here comes the academic left with an even crazier idea: after-birth abortion.

    No, I didn’t make this up. “Partial-birth abortion” is a term invented by pro-lifers. But “after-birth abortion” is a term invented by two philosophers, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva. In the Journal of Medical Ethics, they propose:

    [W]hen circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible. … [W]e propose to call this practice ‘after-birth abortion’, rather than ‘infanticide,’ to emphasize that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus … rather than to that of a child. Therefore, we claim that killing a newborn could be ethically permissible in all the circumstances where abortion would be. Such circumstances include cases where the newborn has the potential to have an (at least) acceptable life, but the well-being of the family is at risk.

    I guess if “the family” is having trouble coming up with the heating bill, or tickets to Disneyland, they should just kill off the latest addition.

    Personally, I don’t think this goes far enough, as it specifically mentions “newborn” as the class of disposable humans. I think any child of any age should be included in the permissible sacrifice category. A pre-teen boy eats more and is harder to live with, so why give his life any more value than that of a tiny newborn baby when “the well-being of the family is at risk”? //sarc off

    I remember driving a pro-abortion Lefty into such a sputtering rage I thought she would explode, or hit me, when she was emoting quite dramatically over the murder of a two month old baby and I suggested she just consider it a fourth trimester abortion. I thought I was being snotty, but it turns out I was just forecasting the future of the Loony Left and its ghouls.

    • Cluster January 26, 2018 / 3:02 pm

      Such circumstances include cases where the newborn has the potential to have an (at least) acceptable life, but the well-being of the family is at risk.

      And ……… who determines what an “acceptable” life is?? And like Amazona said, is past due rent considered to be part of the family “well being”??

      Honestly, the Democrats like to call Trump an “authoritarian” when really that is just pure reflection on their own dreams and desires.

      But not all is lost … I think conservatives ought to use this line of thinking to start aborting progressives … of any age.

    “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there,” Strzok wrote to Page, his mistress.

    So …… he admits that there is nothing there – no evidence of collusion YET they still investigate.

    Trump is taking a lot of heat from conservatives for his plan to legalize dreamers, but herein lies the genius, and the moxie of Trump. He knows the Democrats will never fully support his plan, therefore he will never have to actually legalize dreamers, but in the process he will expose the Democrats and of all of their lies for wanting constructive immigration reform. Democrats either want straight up amnesty, or they will continue to use this as a wedge issue, and many Americans will begin to see who Democrats really are.

    • Amazona January 27, 2018 / 1:21 pm

      I really hope you are right about this being a ploy to lure Dems into turning the offer down so the onus will be on them when he regretfully shrugs his shoulders and says “Well, we tried, and they turned us down, so we’ll just have to go back to Plan A”. But I am afraid he is really caving. He does have some pretty strict criteria for being on a “path to citizenship” where I would have had only one—honorable service in the military. His list will eliminate the people we want to get rid of anyway. And the time frame lets the remainder grow up a little and hopefully get a better perspective of how best to govern the country. But we need consequences for breaking the law, and this dilutes those consequences far too much.

      • Retired Spook January 27, 2018 / 1:38 pm

        Actually Rush came to pretty much the same conclusion on his radio show yesterday. He said he thinks the Dems are so sure they are going to take back the House in November that they don’t really want to solve the DACA problem before then, and will not accept ANY deal that Trump offers them between now and November. They definitely don’t want to eliminate the Visa Lottery system, chain migration or appropriate funds to build the wall. I almost fell out of my chair laughing last night during Laura Ingraham’s show when a Dem Congressman said “there is not a single individual in Congress who doesn’t want security on our southern border.”

The Migration Policy Institute estimated the population that would meet the minimum threshold for age at arrival and length of residence under the 2017 Graham-Durbin DREAM Act as 3.2 million, with the bill’s education criteria winnowing the population to 2.1 million.

        The details of the latest Durbin-Graham proposal are sketchy, but the number of Dreamers eligible could easily be more than 2 million. On top of this, Durbin-Graham wants to give DACA-style work permits to the parents of Dreamers, perhaps doubling the number of people getting a de facto amnesty to 4 or 5 million.

        So it’s not just “Dreamers”. The adults who brought the kids to the United States illegally would get amnesty for doing so, because they brought the kids to the United States illegally. That’s typical Leftist circular “logic”.

        Then there would be the lawsuits from illegals who did not bring kids to the United States illegally, claiming discrimination because they should be given amnesty too, as they broke fewer laws.

        Then there would be lawsuits from those who came here illegally and then produced children here who are considered by some to be citizens, “anchor babies” who would argue that if the first class of illegals, those who brought their kids to the United States illegally, can have the government step in to keep those families from being separated, then they shouldn’t have their own families broken up either.

        Durbin-Graham inevitably leads to allowing all illegals to stay here, and if they get their own way also be on that “path to citizenship”.

      I have always thought Kutcher had more dignity and talent than most of Hollywood. Too bad his wife is such a brainless Lefty ditz.

    As hard as the NYT tried, and believe me, they tried very hard, they simply could not put much of a negative spin on Trump’s Davos triumph.

    Oh, supposedly some anonymous guy whined privately in a dinner that he was alarmed by a president who could insult whole continents, or some such drivel, and the Times did its best to reframe every single comment or reaction as negatively as possible, but they just couldn’t quite erase the reality.

    CNN had to settle for just calling the speech “boring”. Poor babies.

      I love the look that Trump has as he looks for the global elites.

      Kerry asked the Palestinians to “not yield” to Trump’s demands and to “hold on and be strong” in the wake of Trump’s pro-Israel moves in the region.

      WOW. And not in a good way.

        John Kerry, a high-ranking Democrat who has been Secretary of State (until January 2017) and has a relationship with Palestine that had, for four years, the assumed authority of the United States government behind it, is advising that foreign country to sabotage the new President’s efforts to bring peace to the region, an effort which has evaded Mr. Kerry for his entire term of Secretary of State. One could say that Mr. Kerry himself is trying to sabotage the efforts of this administration to bring peace to the region.

        It is obvious that Kerry wants Trump to fail as president, and that success in this area would make him and his predecessor and his former boss and basically the whole Democrat Party, which after all wholeheartedly supported the prior administration and fought to have Kerry’s predecessor elected to the presidency, look bad by comparison. He is willing to sacrifice the lives of many Palestinians and Israelis and anyone else who might become involved in the conflict, just to shore up a fantasy of successes of the Obama administration and his own term as Secretary of State, as well as to pave the way for his own campaign to replace Trump.

        As vile as the Democrat Party has become, this is a new low even for them. To be willing to keep an entire area of the world on the brink of war, to use his perceived status to encourage a nation to reject efforts to achieve peace (and therefore save lives) and to engage in such blatant efforts to sabotage the efforts of a legitimately elected President of the United States and undermine his authority and his administration all show a level of degeneracy that is, unfortunately, not unusual in the New Democrat Party.

        And he seems to be trying to meddle in the government of another country. Gee, I thought that was unforgivable! Evidently not when a Secretary of State tries to pick a winner in another nation’s civil war and breaks the laws of her own country to send arms to the side she has chosen, evidently not when a nation’s refusal to participate in peace talks might benefit an opposing US political party, evidently not when US taxpayer dollars are used to try to influence an election in another country.

        This is not the first time Kerry has consorted with the enemy. He also met in secret with the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong in Paris near the end of the Vietnam War — also as a private citizen. We dodged the bullet when Bush beat him in 2004.

        Maybe he can for president with Jane Fonda as his VP running mate.

        BTW, he also lied, under oath, to Congress. The Left didn’t care.

      • M. Noonan January 28, 2018 / 1:51 am

        I can only put it down to not caring about the country…these dimwits do view themselves as citizens of the world, set against the nation which gave them all their power and position.
