Barack Obama sure knew how to pick ’em, huh?

Everyone will always remember disgraced FBI Director James Comey for his involvement in the 2016 presidential election, as well as refusing to do his job while serving under President Trump.

Likewise, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch will forever be known for discussing with Bill Clinton how to get Hillary off the hook regarding the email scandal – just days before the election.

Comey is saying he’ll resist.

From Newsmax:

Former FBI Director James Comey said he has received a subpoena from House Republicans, according to a Twitter post on Thursday.

House Republicans have been investigating FBI actions in the 2016 campaign, but that probe will end when Democrats take over the committee in January.

Bloomberg News reported last week that Comey would be receiving a subpoena alongside former Attorney General Loretta Lynch as part of continuing probes into their handling of investigations into Hillary Clinton and Russian election meddling, according to a top House Democrat.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wiped clean 30,000-plus emails while secretary of state from a private server.

Comey has been caught doing the same thing.

From Daily Wire:

Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey used a private email account hundreds of times to conduct government business — “and at least seven of those messages were deemed so sensitive by the Justice Department that they declined to release them,” the New York Post reports.

Like Hillary Clinton, whom Comey decided had broken no laws when she used her own homegrown server and email to send and receive classified information, Comey said he used the Gmail account only for “incidental” purposes.

But the Justice Department said that Comey and his chief of staff “discussed government business on about 1,200 pages of messages, 156 of which were obtained by The Post.”

Speaking of Obama, the 44th president made it clear how amazing he is and how everyone who has ever worked with him is a dunce.

He starts by saying that on his path to the presidency he began as a community organizer.

However, Obama quickly realized that people weren’t on his level (because he was so woke) and he needed to seek higher office.

It goes on like that for a while, with Obama climbing the ranks and describing how nobody wants to do the “right thing” – except for him.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
