The documentation in question also reveals how much taxpayer money was spent on both of these investigations. As you probably already expect, it was quite costly.

According to biannual reports released by the special counsel’s office, Mueller and his team spent $12.3 million in direct spending between his appointment on May 17, 2017 and Sept. 30, 2018. The office also said it incurred $12.9 million in “indirect” Justice Department spending, a category it described as “neither legally required” for disclosure, nor reported in filings by previous special counsels.

Mueller’s office said the indirect expenses did not amount to additional taxpayer expenditures since these resources would have been devoted to other cases, such as personnel at the FBI, if there had been no special counsel investigation.

In total, the investigation up until Sept. 30 2018 amounted to roughly $25.2 million. On average, the office spent roughly $8.4 million per each six-month period.

However, the report for October 1, 2018 to May 31, 2019 shows the final eight months of the probe cost about $6.56 million in additional taxpayer funds, putting the final tally at nearly $32 million. About $4.12 million of that was spent through the special counsel’s office directly, and $2.44 million came from DOJ components that supported Mueller’s office.

So the government took money from the pockets of taxpayers to use in a scheme to try and nail the president to the wall for some make-believe connection he supposedly had to Russia, all in a game they were playing to try and oust him from office.

If that doesn’t make you absolutely furious, then perhaps you don’t understand the implications here. Deep state actors in our government were using our own money to silence our voices and authority by trying to nullify the choice of the people in picking Trump to be president. That is absolutely deplorable.

Here’s to hoping that individuals responsible for this nonsense are held accountable for their actions.

Disney Slaps ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘Dumbo,’ Other Classic Films With New Content Warnings

Published

on

Disney has decided to continue walking down the “woke” path, attempting to stay relevant so they can milk the rest of humanity for all the dollars possible by tossing some disclaimers on a number of classic films warning that some scenes in the movies contain “negative depictions” and “mistreatment of people or cultures.” Good grief. If Disney didn’t own two-thirds of the world at this point, it would become obvious that making this choice to “go woke” would result in the company “going broke,” but since they do seem to have their hand in everything, nothing is going to come of them doing this. via Daily Wire: “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together,” says the 12-second disclaimer, which cannot be skipped. The films include “Dumbo” from 1941, “Peter Pan” from 1953, “Swiss Family Robinson” from 1960, and “The Aristocats” from 1970. The disclaimer also directs viewers to a website titled “Stories Matter,” which says, “Because happily ever after doesn’t just happen.” “As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the site says. “We can’t change the past, but we can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together to create a tomorrow that today can only dream of.” Disney went on to explain the reason for slapping the warnings on the content: Dumbo “The crows and musical number pay homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations. The leader of the…

Top Astrophysicist Says Asteroid Could Smash Into Earth Day Before Election

Published

on

So far in the year 2020 we’ve had a pandemic featuring an age discriminating virus, race riots, the government admitting UFOs are real, murder hornets, and the wackiest presidential race of all time. Surely there’s nothing else this year could throw at us, right? Wrong. Apparently, according to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, there’s a strong possiblity an asteroid is going to smash into the earth the day before the election. Who had asteroid on their 2020 Bingo card? via Fox News: An asteroid with a diameter the size of a refrigerator could strike the Earth the day before the November election, according to celebrity scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson — but it’s not large enough to do any serious damage. The famed astrophysicist said the space rock, known as 2018VP1, is hurtling towards Earth at a speed of 25,000 miles per hour and may clip the planet on Nov. 2. “It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the Presidential Election,” he wrote on Instagram. But he added that the flying object is nothing to lose sleep over since “it’s not big enough to cause harm.”⠀⠀⠀ NASA already identified the asteroid that is rocketing toward earth, but stated the chances of it actually hitting the earth are currently less than one percent. “It currently has a 0.41% chance of entering our planet’s atmosphere, but if it did, it would disintegrate due to its extremely small size,” the organization stated. While this rock may not hit earth, or even if it does, it might now do much in the way of damage, but I’ve seen enough scary movies to know that when stuff like this happens, strange occurrences follow. So, sure, you may not have to worry about the asteroid, but if it passes by our planet and you suddenly…
