Members of Congress Very Pleased With FBI Lawyer Lisa Page’s Testimony. Here’s Why.

Published

on

There are so many good reasons not to a) have an adulterous affair and b) have an adulterous affair with a colleague.

FBI agent Peter Strzok did both of these things with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, and like many in his position before him, has created a world of trouble for himself.

There’s one big difference between the pickle Strzok is in and the way things turn out for the majority of people who enter in to, and are caught in, extramarital trysts with co-workers: most people don’t have the eyes of the entire nation on him as his web of lies unravels. Nor do they usually find their affair to be at the center of the fallout from the most highly contested presidential election in US history.

Peter Strzok is having a very bad year. One that was made even worse this week after his ex-lover testified before Congress, who found her to be far more cooperative and informative than Strzok.

The Daily Wire has the story:

Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that there were “significant differences” in Page’s testimony compared to the testimony given by Strzok and that she gave congressional investigators new information they did not previously have.

“In many cases, she admits that the text messages mean exactly what they say, as opposed to Agent Strzok, who thinks that we’ve all misinterpreted his own words on any text message that might be negative,” Ratcliff told reporters on Monday, according to ABC News.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) agreed with Ratcliffe’s statement, saying, “She’s certainly more cooperative than Peter Strzok was and the pieces of information filled in some blanks along the way, but we’ve got a huge jigsaw puzzle to put together.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) told Fox News’ “FOX & Friends” that Page gave Congress “more insights to who was involved in what.”

It appears that Strzok’s carefully crafted defense unraveled about as quickly as the lies he must have told his wife for well over a year–something Gohmert blasted him for during his testimony last week.

Why should Strzok have trusted Page to get his back when they had both engaged in their relationship–and their plot to prevent Trump from being elected–behind the backs of those who trusted them? Their affair alone indicates their lack of trustworthiness Page clearly feels no need to cover for Strzok anymore.

I have to say, as a firm believer in marital fidelity and conservative values, it’s pretty gratifying to see Strzok’s many forms of betrayal against those he had pledged loyalty to come back to bite him in the rear in such a dramatic way.

We can only hope this leads to the hammer of justice for Strzok and anyone else who sought to compromise our electoral process for personal political gain.

Florida’s Top Doc Removed from Meeting Over Mask Refusal

He was following the science, though…

Published

on

When it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have often heard the mantra “follow the science”, repeated ad nauseam by any number of doctors, epidemiologists, and experts.  This is because COVID-19, like other viruses, behaves in a predictable and distinct way, an die can use math to understand the true nature of our risks, and to a fairly accurate degree.

But there are some who wish to ignore the science, and instead create arbitrary rules and regulations that don’t conform to the advice of the experts.

This sentiment turned downright silly in Florida this week, after one of the state’s leading medical experts was removed from a meeting for not wearing a mask.

Florida’s top health official was asked to leave a meeting after refusing to wear a mask at the office of a state senator who told him she had a serious medical condition, officials have confirmed.

Florida Senate leader Wilton Simpson, a Republican, sent a memo to senators Saturday regarding the incident at the office of Democratic state Sen. Tina Polsky, asking visitors at the building to be respectful with social interactions. Polsky, who represents parts of Broward and Palm Beach counties, had not yet made public her breast cancer diagnosis.

Polsky told The Associated Press about the tense exchange with state Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo that was first reported by the news site Florida Politics. She said Ladapo and two aides were offered masks and asked to wear them when they arrived for the Wednesday meeting. She did not tell him she had breast cancer, but said she had a serious condition.

Ladado suggested that the meeting could take place outside if it would make Polsky more comfortable, but she refused.

This begs the obvious question: If Ladapo is following the science, as he most certainly is, who is anyone to tell him he’s wrong?  This is the premiere expert on Florida’s coronavirus situation, after all.

Crew of Alec Baldwin Film Walked Off Set Over Safety Fears Hours Before Fatality

WHOA!

Published

on

While the fatal shooting of a Hollywood cinematographer has been deemed an accident by those involved, there appears to have been a pattern of negligence on-set, leading up to the incident.

Alec Baldwin last week discharged a “prop” firearm in the direction of crew members on the set of his film “Rust”, and, somehow, a live round had been loaded into the weapon.  The shot killed one member of the production staff and wounded another.

As it turns out, crew members were already concerned about the way in which the weapons were being handled.

The 24-year-old head armorer in charge of guns on the Alec Baldwin film where cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was tragically shot and killed on Thursday had admitted she wasn’t sure she was ready for the job in an interview before filming started.

‘I almost didn’t take the job because I wasn’t sure if I was ready, but doing it, it went really smoothly,’ Hannah Gutierrez-Reed said in a podcast interview last month after leading the firearms department for The Old Way, starring Nicolas Cage – her first time as head armorer.

And that’s not all:

It comes as crew on the film revealed they walked off set hours before the fatal accident over safety fears after firearms were accidentally discharged three times – including once by Baldwin’s stunt double who had been told the gun was not loaded, and twice in a closed cabin.

A search warrant released Friday said that Gutierrez-Reed laid out three prop guns on a cart outside the filming location, and first assistant director Dave Halls grabbed the gun from the cart and brought it inside to Baldwin, unaware that it was loaded with live rounds.

‘Cold gun!’ shouted Halls before handing the gun to Baldwin, using the phrase to signal to cast and crew that the gun was safe to fire for the scene, the warrant said.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing, and there is the potential for someone to be charged in the case still.
