Iraqi Badr Corps Chief Who Led Today’s Raid on US Embassy in Baghdad — Was Once Invited to White House by BARACK OBAMA

Iraqi Badr Corps Chief Who Led Today’s Raid on US Embassy in Baghdad — Was Once Invited to White House by BARACK OBAMA


Donald Trump vows to hold Iran 'fully responsible' for attack on US embassy in Baghdad: Under-siege American soldiers wound 20 of pro-Tehran mob that stormed complex in retaliation for US airstrikes on Hezbollah

America! Fuck Yeah!

Donald Trump vows to hold Iran 'fully responsible' for attack on US embassy in Baghdad: Under-siege American soldiers wound 20 of pro-Tehran mob that stormed complex in retaliation for US airstrikes on Hezbollah 
American soldiers inside the embassy have fired tear gas, stun grenades and warning shots at hundreds of fighters who broke down the compound gate and set fires within the complex on Tuesday 
The ambassador was on leave at the time of the attack and embassy staff had already been evacuated before the US Marine guard became besieged at the compound 
Trump has vowed to hold Tehran accountable for the embassy attack, which is in retaliation for US air strikes on the Iran-backed Kataeb Hezbollah on Sunday night 
Those USAF strikes were themselves in retaliation for last week's killing of an American contractor in Kirkuk 'Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. 
We strongly responded, and always will.' Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning. 'Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!' 
The embassy's security team evacuated some local staff through a rear gate while others left by helicopter as the rest remained inside 'safe' areas within the embassy, an employee said 
Twenty people have been reported injured in the carnage by the pro-Iran Popular Mobilization Forces

We Have a Moral Obligation To Fight Tyranny: Virginia 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County Speech

Watergate—Trump learned from President Nixon's mishandling of the press

From What Trump learned from Watergate by Don Surber (thanks to Ed Driscoll):
The [Watergate] archives have revealed that Nixon was railroaded.

In American Spectator, [Geoff] Shepard wrote,

"There is documented proof of a series of secret meetings between Chief Judge John Sirica and Watergate prosecutors. I don’t know which is the bigger surprise: that they were secretly meeting to resolve issues in advance of trial or that they were documenting their agreements in memos to their files."
 … Archibald Cox in retrospect made Jimmy the Weasel Comey look honest.

The deep state won.

Shepard wrote,

"It should have come as no surprise that Cox delegated the Watergate Special Prosecution Force recruiting to James Vorenberg, a fellow law professor who had taught criminal law. Vorenberg hired only people whom he knew or who were recommended by people he knew, and he assembled a specially selected team of some 70 lawyers, virtually all Ivy League graduates, the top 17 of whom had worked together in the Kennedy/Johnson Department of Justice. Readers should note the constitutional inversion here: these were the very people voted out of office with Nixon’s 1968 election, now in control of the government’s investigative and prosecutorial powers. Vorenberg announced at their first press conference in June 1973 their intent to investigate each and every allegation of wrongdoing by the Nixon administration since it had assumed office some five years prior."
Sound familiar?

That is why this will not happen again, or at least not to President Donald John Trump. He learned the lesson of Watergate.

We said of Sarah Palin, we cannot spare her; she fights. Donald Trump does not simply fight; he wins.

He was in his 20s when he beat the deep state the first time. Nixon's HUD sued him in its administrative court, hoping to coerce an admission of guilt. Trump's lawyer -- the commie-beating Roy Cohn -- advised him to take HUD to real court. 2 years later, the charges were dropped.

 … President Trump learned from President Nixon's mishandling of the press.

 … after a year of propaganda by the media and Democrats, the public fell for the Democrat lies. Kennedy somehow became the victim. And he never had to give up drunk driving. Always bear in mind, the Germans were the best-educated people in the world when they fell for Nazism.

 … President Trump learned from Nixon's firing of Cox, which created a backlash. He kept Mueller, which avoided an obstruction of justice claim.

The president has needled and ridiculed the hapless Democrats, but he also has given them everything they asked for. When they objected to his July 25 phone call to Ukraine, President Trump released the transcript. There will be no nonsense about the cover-up being worse than the crime on his watch.

That transcript should have ended the controversy, but Adam Schiff is insane, Jerry Nadler is a fool, and the press is corrupt. Down the rabbit hole of impeachment they dove.

Public sentiment, the law, and the facts are in President Donald John Trump's favor. He learned from Nixon. it is not paranoia when they really are out to kill you.

Virginia AG Vows To Enforce New Gun-Control Laws As Prison Budget Gets Boosted

Richmond, VA – The Virginia attorney general vowed to enforce controversial new gun-control laws even as Democratic legislators in the state were gearing up for the showdown by increasing the state’s corrections budget. 
"When the General Assembly passes new gun violence legislation, they will be followed, and they will be enforced," Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring said Friday, according to WUSA. 
"We’re talking about very reasonable gun violence legislation that has broad public support," Herring insisted. But other politicians and law enforcement officials had a very different opinion on what will happen as a result of new gun-control laws passed in the 2020 legislative session, WUSA reported. Prince William County Board of Supervisors Chairman-At-Large Corey Stewart represents an area that has declared itself a Second Amendment Sanctuary County. 
"That doesn’t mean that the localities and the local sheriffs have to use their resources to enforce a gun confiscation law, or any other unconstitutional law that Democrats and the general assembly pass,” Stewart pointed out to WUSA. He said opposition to the newly-proposed gun-control laws is strong across the entire state. 
"The Attorney General is delusional if he thinks this is just some movement that’s been ginned up by the so-called gun lobby," Stewart said. "This is a groundswell movement if there ever was one." 
A number of sheriffs have spoken out and said they will not enforce the proposed gun laws if they area passed. 
When Virginia Governor Richard Northam threatened there could be consequences for the counties that didn’t follow the new laws, some sheriffs announced that they had figured out how to do it without violating their oaths of office. 
“If the legislature decides to restrict certain weapons I feel harms our community, I will swear in thousands of auxiliary deputies in Culpeper,” Culpepper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins, who was just re-elected for a third term in office, said. “There’s no limit to the number of people I can swear in.” 
Despite the pushback, the Democratic-controlled state legislature is getting prepared to lock up Virginians who refuse to fall in line with their new gun-control laws, and they’ve even added money to the state budget to account for that additional load on the state agency that runs the prisons. 
Item 402 in Virginia House Bill 30, the state’s most recent budget proposal, included a $250,000 bump for the Department of Corrections “for the estimated net increase in the operating cost of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment of sentencing legislation as listed below.” 
Specifically, the bill allotted $50,000 to cover the cost of offenders locked up because of the new law that allows “the removal of firearms from persons who pose substantial risk to themselves or others.”

BABYLON BEE: Liberals Clarify Their Racism Is Actually Democratic Racism

From the Babylon Bee:
WORLD—Liberals seem to have a problem as more Justin Trudeau blackface photos have surfaced. Meanwhile, Democratic politicians in America continue to say anti-semitic things. 
In their defense, liberals have come out to clarify that their racism isn't the destructive kind condemned by most of humanity, but rather, it's a new improved form called "democratic racism." 
"It's not racism---it's democratic racism," Justin Trudeau assured supporters as 78 new images surfaced of him in various shades of brown makeup. "It's totally different from regular racism, and to imply that our racism is the same as the bad kind of racism is ignorant." 
To separate the new democratic racism from old, boring racism, liberals pointed out that their form is very popular, and that their base is willing to defend their racist actions and comments. 
"See, they voted for us, and no matter what crazy racist comments we make, they'll vote for us again," said Ilhan Omar. "Where regular racism is condemned by all, democratic racism is voted for by our supporters. So it's, like, democratic." 
"Also, white men are bad."
It is Social Justice Racism.

Durham Investigation Focusing Attention On John Brennan And Some CIA Veterans Aren’t Pleased

A week ago the NY Times reported that the ongoing Durham investigation was looking at former CIA Director John Brennan’s possible role in pushing the Steele dossier. Today Politico published a piece which reads like push back against the Durham investigation from the CIA. 
Intelligence community veterans say the Durham probe could force Haspel to choose between protecting her agency from Trump’s wrath and bowing to Barr’s wishes; they point to FBI chief Chris Wray, who has found himself at odds with the president in recent weeks over a watchdog report about the bureau’s conduct in the Russia probe. 
And they say the Barr-Durham probe represents overreach by an attorney general who seems to have already made up his mind and is bent on imposing his own skeptical view of the Russia investigation on the intelligence community… 
“It is unprecedented and inappropriate to do this via Justice department prosecutors who will tend to apply the standards of a courtroom to the more nuanced, and often more challenging world of intelligence analysis,said John McLaughlin, who served as both deputy director and acting director of the CIA from 2000-2004…

TRULY AMAZING! President Trump SO GOOD that US Has Gone from 1/5th of Global Economy to 1/4th of Global Economy in JUST THREE YEARS

Remember when, under Obama, everyone was saying China was ascendent, and America would just have to get used to doing with a little less.

I'm pretty sure no one would remember this, but I told you it was bullshit. The reason I said that is because China's economy is based on stealing, not on ideas spurned by desire to increase one's personal wealth.

Any economy not based on ideas which increase personal wealth is doomed to failure.

Look at what happened to the almighty USSR.

But back during the Obama years, I never expected a Trump to come along.

Look what has happened:
The research also found that the USA now makes up for a quarter of the world’s GDP – the largest share of the world’s economy since 2007. And the American economy is not due to be overtaken by China until 2033 – three years later than forecast. 
The US share of global GDP is 3.6 per cent higher than halfway through Barack Obama’s presidency in 2011. 
More from the World Economic Rankings from the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR): 
• The USA in 2019 reached 24.8% of world GDP, its largest share of the world economy since 2007. And the US is now expected to remain the world’s largest economy throughout the 2020s and is to be overtaken by China only in 2033, three years later than we forecast two years ago… … 
Perhaps the most unexpected element in this report is the ongoing strength of the US economy, though we expect that 2019 will prove the high water mark as the problems of the trade war and the deficit impinge. 
But in 2011 the US economy was 21.2% of world GDP. In 2019 its share had risen to 24.8%, its highest share since 2007. And it is now forecast to remain the world’s largest economy throughout the 2020s, only being overtaken by China in 2033.
If Trump could somehow remain President for another eight years after 2024, China would either convert to outright Capitalism, or they'd be ground to dust.

Not that I am advocating that Trump be President for 16 years. I am not.

Feds finally start investigating Jeffrey Epstein’s gal pal Ghislaine Maxwell

Ghislaine Maxwell — the British socialite who’s long been accused of serving as Jeffrey Epstein’s madam — is under investigation by the FBI, sources confirmed to The Post on Friday. 
Maxwell, who has largely kept out of the public eye since 2016, allegedly procured young women and groomed them to have sex with Epstein and his wealthy pals. 
Several other “people who facilitated” the dead pedophile’s alleged sexual abuse are also being probed but Maxwell is the main focus, two sources familiar with the investigation told Reuters. 
One of the sources said the probe is in its early stages and that the FBI is following up with leads it’s received from women who claim to have been victimized by Epstein. 
The FBI currently has no plans to interview Prince Andrew, who’s been accused of having sex with one of Epstein’s most vocal accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, Reuters reported. They did not rule out the possibility that he could be questioned at a later date.

Trump warns Newsom: If California homeless crisis persists, feds 'will get involved'

President Trump issued a warning to California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday, threatening federal intervention if Newsom is unable to solve his state's homeless crisis. 
"Governor Gavin N has done a really bad job on taking care of the homeless population in California. If he can’t fix the problem, the Federal Govt. will get involved!" Trump tweeted. 
The Golden State has led the nation in the number of homeless people with an estimated total of over 129,972 in January 2018, according to a Department of Housing and Urban Development [HUD] report. Just over 68 percent of the homeless population in California, the most populous U.S. state, is also categorized as unsheltered. 
Earlier this month, Newsom blamed the Trump administration over rising homelessness in cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, saying the White House was taking no action on "Housing First," the governor's approach to solving homelessness. The proposal would involve getting people in homes first, and potentially adding job-skills training or addiction services later.

Brunei makes celebrating Christmas a criminal offense

Brunei makes celebrating Christmas a criminal offense 
Anyone found illegally celebrating Christmas in Brunei could face up to five years in prison, according to a reported declaration by the Sultan of the tiny oil-rich state. 
Brunei introduced its ban on Christmas last year over fears that celebrating it “excessively and openly” could lead its Muslim population astray. 
Christians and others can celebrate Christmas, but must do so in private and have to first alert the authorities. 
Local Islamic religious leaders have promoted the ban, warning that adopting the trappings of Christmas is tantamount to imitation of another faith, prohibited in some interpretations of Islam. 
Officials from the Ministry of Religious Affairs have also reportedly visited local businesses to ensure they are not displaying Christmas decorations, including Santa hats and banners with Christmas greetings.


In the aftermath of the Department of Justice Inspector General report on FISA abuse in the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign and the Trump presidency, Dan Bongino interviewed Rep. Devin Nunes at length about “the biggest political scandal in US history.” I have not previously heard Nunes speak at such length about the Russia hoax, at least since the release of the Horowitz report on December 9. I will only say that this is worth your time if you seek to understand the scandal.

President Trump's Christmas Message

Boris Johnson's Christmas Message Mentions Persecuted Christians Around the World

Prime Minister Boris Johnson: Today of all days, I want us to remember those Christians around the world who are facing persecution. For them Christmas day will be marked in private, in secret, perhaps even in a prison cell. As Prime Minister, that is something I want to change. We stand with Christians everywhere, in solidarity, and will defend your right to practice your faith. So as a country let us reflect on the year, and celebrate the good that is to come.

Merry Christmas Infidels!

What Child Is This

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

The values of Christmas have been handed down by our culture from generation to generation and celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ and the values that he stood for. In it’s more modern form, Christopher, Christmas is represented by Santa Claus. And as you know, Santa is considered the most beloved person of children all over the world. Many children believe in him. You did too. And I hope you still do. But, as you are about to enter your teen years, Christopher, you probably are having your doubts on whether Santa Claus exists.

There will be a time - soon in fact - when your peers will tell you that belief in such things as Santa Claus is 'childish' and not the 'adult' thing to do. But little do these 'realists'know that adults are merely children who owe money.

So you ask me, "Is there a Santa Claus, Dad?"

And I reply, "Yes, Christopher, there still is a Santa Claus and you need him now more than ever before" - it’s just that he's harder to find as you grow older. Santa Claus does exist - as surely as our hopes, our wishes and our dreams exist. He's the embodiment of the values of family, home and community. Like Christmas Eve itself, he's magic - not because there's magic in the world but because children see the world as magic. He's all that's good, unselfish and generous in the world, and, in his own way, he is Christmas. 

When you were young, you received from Santa the explicit gifts of Christmas - toys, candy, and the obligatory sweater. But you also received the implicit gifts of family, home and love. Will you continue to receive Santa's gifts? Yes, you will. 

But as you grow older, Christopher, you'll have to work harder to get them. When you were younger, you had to work to be good. As you grow older you'll have to work to create good. When you were younger, he found you. As you grow older you'll have to work to find him.

The times we live in suggest logic, cynicism and distrust are the 'values' of survival these days and that the intangibles of love, faith and hope are fast disappearing from our communal landscape. But you'll find that in the final analysis, those abstract intangibles are the only things worth having. But are they real? Ah, Christopher, there is nothing more real and abiding in this world. Hold strong the intangibles. Ignore the skeptics. These intangibles do serve a practical purpose.


Those who no longer wish, no longer dream. And those who lose their dreams lose their hopes. And those who lose hope are easy to control.  The freedom to live comes directly from the freedom to dream. And now, just as you have begun to internalize the values of your parents, you'll have to internalize the values of Christmas. Your journey of self-discovery has just begun and the wonder, awe and magic of life will always be there if you see and not just look, if you feel and not just touch, if you listen and not just hear.

Yes, Christopher, Santa Claus is harder to find when you grow up. But he does exist. 

Where, you ask?

As Tinkerbell said to Peter Pan, you’ll find him in between the time you are asleep and the time you are awake - the time when you can still remember your dreams.

Fairfax County Virginia 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County Speech: Civil War

Ave Maria

26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

Trump Directs FBI To Investigate Saudi Nationals Who Mysteriously Disappear While Facing Criminal Charges

In a rare instance of constructive bi-partisanship, President Trump is working with far left Senator Ron Wyden to direct the FBI to look into Saudi Arabia’s role in the mysterious disappearances of several Saudi nationals who were facing charges in Oregon, but went missing after Saudi officials posted bail. 
These instances were brought to light earlier in the year when The Oregonian ran a feature piece that focused on several of these cases. Each one is strikingly similar; young Saudi college student, arrested for crimes, bailed out by an official from the Saudi consulate, then whisked away never to be seen again. The cases include Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah, who was facing Manslaughter charges after he ran over a high school girl. 
An official from the Saudi consulate cut a $100,000 check to bail Noorah out. Noorah was then taken away in a black SUV, and apparently boarded a private jet back to Saudi Arabia.

McConnell Crushed Impeachment in One 30-Minute Speech

"This Is My Resolute Face. How's It Look?"
"Not Exactly Resolve Manifest, Sir, But We'll Go With It"

J.J. Sefton says:
Mitch (McConnell) is in the driver's seat and he is not happy about any of this. Despite his laconic, almost soporific delivery, the half hour speech that he gave in response to the impeachment is one of the most important ever given by any politician, IMHO.
From American Greatness:
The often underestimated McConnell gave the speech of his life on Thursday. In approximately half an hour, Senator McConnell did what so many Democrats have claimed to do over these last several weeks: He meticulously applied the Constitution and historical precedent to the facts at hand and to the articles of impeachment the House passed on Wednesday. 
McConnell’s speech is both educational and wickedly fun to watch. Let’s start with the fact that Washington Democrats made up their minds to impeach President Trump since even before he was inaugurated. Here’s a reporter in April of 2016—April of 2016! “Donald Trump isn’t even the Republican nominee yet. But impeachment is already on the lips of pundits, newspaper editorials, constitutional scholars, and even a few members of Congress.” 
Justifications for impeachment included rude behavior to professional athletes and reporters, changing Obama’s policy on transgender in the military. “A few months ago,” McConnell added, “Democrats’ three-year-long impeachment in search of articles found its way to the subject of Ukraine. House Democrats then embarked on the most rushed, least-thorough impeachment inquiry in modern history.” 
McConnell then contrasts the “Get Trump” effort to the “mountains of evidence” gathered in both the Nixon and Clinton processes. The Nixon impeachment process required 14-months of hearings in addition to a special prosecutor. The Clinton impeachment followed years of an independent counsel investigation. 
“House Democrats’ rushed and rigged process produced two articles of impeachment [which] are fundamentally unlike any articles that any prior House of Representatives have ever found,” McConnell explained. Article I involves the “timing of aid to Ukraine.” But the articles do not even purport to allege an actual crime. “Instead, they deploy the vague phrase ‘abuse of power’ to impugn the president’s actions in a general and indeterminate way.” 
The Democrats might not be required to allege a crime, but McConnell warned, “history matters and precedent matters. And there were important reasons why every previous House of Representatives in American history restrained itself . . . from crossing the Rubicon.” 
The vagueness of the “abuse of power” article is effectively a “mal-administration” charge rejected by the Constitution’s Framers because it would so easily be used to attack presidents over policy differences. If the Democrats are successful, all presidents henceforward will be impeached whenever the opposition party achieves power in the House. 
“So there were powerful reasons why every House of Representatives for 230 years . . . required presidential impeachment to revolve around clear, recognizable crimes,” McConnell said. “That 230-year tradition died last night.”

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: Work on Russian Pipeline May Grind To Halt On Trump Sanctions

AllSeas Group SA said it would halt operations on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia to Germany as U.S. President Donald Trump approved sanctions targeting the project, which critics say will bind Europe more tightly to Moscow. 
Germany lashed out against the U.S. penalties on Saturday, saying they’re “incomprehensible” and interfere in its internal affairs. “They hit German and European companies,” Ulrike Demmer, a spokeswoman for Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government, said in an emailed statement.   
The $11 billion project is just weeks away from completion and has led Trump to call Germany “a captive to Russia.” He has criticized the European Union for not doing more to diversify imports away from the nation that supplies more than a third of its gas.

BIG NEWS Ignored by Fake News Media: Income Inequality Is Narrowing Under President Trump

Maria Bartiromo: What is not being spoken about in this whole economic boom, income inequality is narrowing. It is lessening. This was the major issue from the left for so many years and it is an important issue, that the rich keep getting richer and that it wasn’t filtering through. It is 100% filtering through! You see income inequality get smaller and smaller as wages go up. And the bottom earners are really seeing the wages go up the most.

Barr: Criminal probe of intel community looking at “private actors” too

From Sharyl Attkisson:
U.S. Attorney General William Barr continues to give provocative new details about the investigation being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham regarding the intelligence community’s behavior in the Trump-Russia probe. 
In an interview on Fox News Wednesday, Barr said that Durham’s criminal probe is not confined to looking at federal agencies: he’s also looking at “private actors.” 
“[Durham is] not just looking at the FBI. He’s looking at other agencies … and also private actors, so it’s a much broader investigation.” 
William Barr, U.S. Attorney General Barr has been speaking publicly about the ongoing probe, he says, in part to correct misreporting and misinformation in the wake of the release of the Justice Department Inspector General report by Michael Horowitz. 
It was widely misreported that Horowitz found “no political bias” in the FBI’s behavior investigating the Trump campaign. 
In fact, Horowitz testified he could not fathom the motivation behind the inexplicable misconduct displayed by three hand-picked FBI teams in the probe. He acknowledged some of the players displayed serious political bias and said that he could not rule that out as a factor in their execution of the botched investigation. 
One of the most well documented abuses in the FBI’s investigation was its privacy invasion via repeat wiretapping of one-time Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page as a supposed Russian spy. 
The political opposition research packet that the FBI used to justify the wiretap had been discredited, but the FBI hid that from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court, according to the Inspector General. 
Democrats and the Hillary Clinton campaign had funded the research that was brought to the FBI. Page was not found to be a spy, after all, and was never charged with any crime. He has not received an apology. 
“Also, [Durham] is not just looking at the FISA aspect of it. He is looking at all the conduct both before and after the election,” said Barr in the Fox News interview.
Private Actors, huh?

Oh, And About That Democratic Party Presidential Candidate Debate Last Night ...

"So, based on last night's debate, who would you vote for?

--A senile half-wit socialist who yells at clouds?

--A senile half-wit socialist who frightens small children?

--A busybody New England socialist who has declared war on American energy production?

--A Minnesota socialist who basically supports any progressive issue she's told to?

--A sanctimonious Christian socialist who only believes those parts of the Bible that don't apply to him.

--A billionaire socialist who basically bought his spot in the debate?

--A wacky socialist businessman who wants to give everybody free money?

Oh, and did anybody see any American flags at the debate? I mean, this being an American election and all, I would expect that there would be at least one. And especially since they Dems are all 'yay America' now. It's like they don't know how to do the whole patriotism thing right. It's a foreign language to them."

Presiding FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer to Step Down Days After Rare Public Rebuke of FBI – Will be Replaced by Obama-Appointed Judge


Will no one rid me of this turbulent Priest?
On Tuesday Rosemary Collyer, the presiding judge on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), rebuked the FBI under Director James Comey for the abuse of the FISA Court. 
“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the [Office of Inspector General] report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Collyer wrote. 
“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” she added. 
The FBI hit Collyer back with a weak response and claimed Director Wray “has ordered more than 40 corrective steps to address the Report’s recommendations, including some improvements beyond those recommended by the IG.” 
And now she’s stepping down early from her post.
