FISA “Cover Your Behind” Maneuver By FBI/DOJ Flies Directly in the Face of the President

This is not okay.

The rarity of electing a man such as Donald Trump to the White House cannot be understated.

We are talking about a populist, Citizen President, who very clearly understands that this is a nation of people, not a nation of ruling class Congressmen and women who lord over us from their lobbyist-purchased penthouses, or sneer at us from their cushy, special-interest side gigs.

No, Donald Trump is different, and he has undoubtedly irked those who have been suckling at the government teat over the course of the last several decades.

Trending: HERE WE GO: First Republican Rep. Comes Out & Calls For Trump’s Impeachment (Details)

For example, from the President’s first State of the Union address:

But above all else, they are Americans.  And this Capitol, this city, and this Nation, belong to them.

Our task is to respect them, to listen to them, to serve them, to protect them, and to always be worthy of them.

Americans fill the world with art and music.  They push the bounds of science and discovery.  And they forever remind us of what we should never forget:  The people dreamed this country. The people built this country.  And it is the people who are making America great again.

As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve.

As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will not fail.

Congress, apparently didn’t care for that, hence the increase in “resistance” activity over the course of the last 8 months.

Now, after the President has ordered the declassification of several internal documents from the FBI and DOJ, those organizations are pulling a “CYA”, or “cover your behind” maneuver that directly flies in the face of the President’s command.

President Donald Trump has demanded the “immediate declassification” of sensitive materials about the Russia investigation, but the agencies responsible are expected to propose redactions that would keep some information secret, according to three people familiar with the matter.

The Justice Department, FBI and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are going through a methodical review and can’t offer a timeline for finishing, said the people, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the sensitive matter.

The White House issued a statement on Monday listing material that Trump wants declassified immediately, echoing demands of Republican lawmakers who share his contention that the continuing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election was tainted by anti-Trump bias well before Robert Mueller was named special counsel to run it.

Among Trump’s demands was the full public release of all text messages concerning the Russia probe by Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and by several former officials, including two who were fired — former FBI Director James Comey and his deputy, Andrew McCabe. One person described the order to release text messages as unprecedented, and another said additional talks will probably be held with the White House over the matter.

This is not okay.

These redactions only serve to prove that the President was right:  The American people, whom this nation belongs to, will be absolutely livid with what they will find in these documents.

In this age of American enlightenment, and in the coming information revolution, the FBI may cease to exist…and they will only have themselves to blame.

Beto Turns Conspiracy Theorist When Asked About Validity of 2016 Election

Get out your tinfoil hats!

conspiracy tinfoil

When you look around the internet today, there is one group of online rabble rousers who are being stamped out at an alarming rate:  Conspiracy theorists. While many of these self-proclaimed “researchers” and “journalists” are truly incorrigible, (such as nutcase Alex Jones), the underlying fact remains that taking away their right to speak their minds in the internet’s public square is wholly un-American. Remember always:  Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and forcing these dangerous ideas back underground is a surefire way to be blindsided by them when they rise again in a new, never-before-seen form. The evils of censorship aside, there is another alarming trend within this trend, however.  It seems as though only certain conspiracy theories are now considered taboo…namely those emanating from the right side of the aisle. For instance, when Beto O’Rourke tells an audience that he’s not sure how legitimate the 2016 election was, that’s just fine. While appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, O’Rourke dropped a bombshell opinion of his. After referencing the Russian breach of the voting systems in two counties in Florida, host Joy Reid asked, “Do you have confidence that the 2016 election was not impacted in terms of, not just the use of propaganda on American voters, but literally that the electoral systems weren’t breached and that Donald Trump was elected fairly?” O’Rourke answered, “I don’t have complete confidence. In part because of what you just shared about Florida, in part because we know from other secretaries of state in other states in the union that their systems were breached. We don’t know if vote tallies were changed, but that alone should be cause for concern.” Of course, several lengthy and in-depth investigations into this very possibility have been conducted, including the 22-month long, $30 million probe helmed by Robert Mueller. None of these…

TOLERANT LEFT: Author Asks if Saudi Arabia Could Give Trump the Khashoggi Treatment

More violent dog whistles from the radical left are emerging as Washington’s dysfunction approaches critical mass.

Fran Lebowitz

For as tolerant as the liberal left claims to be, they sure do want a lot of harm to come to the President and the republican party. This “resistance” attitude is something straight out of Hollywood, which makes sense since much of this violent and anti-American rhetoric is being spurned on by wealthy celebrities who have not a care in the world. Just two weeks after Kathy Griffin posted an incredibly gory image of herself having figuratively beheaded a facsimile of the President, a former Bernie Sanders campaign staffer attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team. We must always remember that there are consequences for these sorts of political outbursts, particularly at a time in which our nation is so divided. So why on earth would author Fran Lebowtiz suggest that the President be killed on a public forum such as HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher? Lebowtiz began her rant by saying that “impeachment would be just the beginning of what [President Trump] deserves”. She added, “Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think, we should turn him over to the Saudis, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter. Maybe they could do the same for him.” It took until the main program had ended for Lebowitz to backtrack, likely fearing an ugly visit from the Secret Service. Later, during the “Overtime” segment, Lebowitz said, “I didn’t realize that I said it. … I regret saying it.” She added, “I did not mean that, and I regret saying it. I regret that everyone misinterpreted it…they misinterpret everything. Why should they stop with me?” Sorry Fran – there’s nothing to misinterpret here. Also, as an author, the idea that Lebowitz somehow wasn’t calculating the words that she was using is absurd…
