Same Schiff, Different Day: ‘Collusion’ Will Be Top Priority

Here we go again…*sigh*

Published

Adam Schiff

In a scant few hours, the nation will be picking up and moving on from yet another ugly and somewhat embarrassing election season.

The 2018 midterms have been objectively huge.  One estimate from yesterday had over 31 million ballots having already been cast by early voters.  That number is enormous, with only 19 million or so having voted as early in the 2014 midterms, and only 41 million in the 2016 Presidential election.

For democrats, they are seeing this as a good sign, as their logical conclusion is that democratic youngsters are the ones taking early advantage of the opportunity, likely in order to beat the glut of “I voted” sticker posts on Facebook, ensuring themselves a hero’s share of the “likes” and theoretical internet points.

But I digress.

The democrats are banking on the youthful vigor of attention-seeking millennials, and that has a few of them counting their chickens before they hatch.

Take Adam Schiff for example.  (…please?)

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told the Los Angeles Times Monday that the investigation into so-called “Russian collusion” with President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign will be a top priority if Democrats win the midterm elections.

He vowed to go after Trump’s personal business interests: ““The president has sought to keep that off limits, but if that’s the leverage Russians pose that’s a real threat to our country,” Schiff said, as quoted by the Times.

Schiff, whom House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is said to be grooming to take her place, has been a ubiquitous presence on cable news as he has pushed the Russia collusion theory for two years.

In March 2017, Schiff insisted that there was “more than circumstantial” evidence to substantiate the claims against Trump — but despite his best efforts, and those of Special Counsel Robert Muller, no such evidence has emerged.

Once again, to reiterate what the President himself has said, this election is more important than ever, and the democrats may only have one thing in mind should they take the house and senate:  Impeachment.

With a ramping up of the Mueller investigation and the accusations of Russian collusion still flying, the left may simply be digging for the dirt they need to metaphorically bury the President, but that certainly won’t stop Adam Schiff from spouting off about it.

GPS Watch Info Could Send Mafia Hitman Away for a LONG TIME

This is far from the first time that this sort of information has uncovered secrets, either.

There is no doubt that we often take for granted the risks involved with the latest and greatest technological advancements we enjoy, specifically in the realm of personal devices.

Sure, it is a fantastic advantage to carry around a cell phone capable of telling us exactly where we are at any given time, especially on a planet as vast as our own.  Not to mention that, with Wikipedia, we are able to know virtually anything in just a matter of a few seconds of thumb-work.

Heck, just yesterday I ordered a smoked chicken plate from a BBQ restaurant using only my smartphone.  And it was delicious.

But we must remember that there is a downside to all of this rampant connectivity.  Namely, that all of this information is being stored somewhere, and that this storage isn’t always the most private.

Take one mafia hitman, for example, who learned this lesson the hard way.

A British runner, cyclist, and mob hitman has been convicted for the murders of two rival gangsters, in part, because of his GPS watch. Mark “Iceman” Fellows, 39, was found guilty by a jury at Liverpool Crown Court of killing organized crime leader Paul “Mr. Big” Massey and his associate John Kinsella, 55 and 53 at the time of their deaths. Massey and Kinsella were also career criminals, part of a gang scene near Manchester, England, with a reputation known across Europe, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Though police already suspected Fellows in Kinsella’s death, it was his Garmin Forerunner that linked him to Massey’s unsolved 2015 murder. While detectives were investigating Fellows, they came across a photo of the suspect wearing his Garmin Forerunner during 2015’s Great Manchester 10K (he ran 47:17, pictured above) two months before the murder of Massey that July. Detectives then located the device at Fellows’s home and checked its GPS data for files that could link him to Massey.

This is far from the first time that this sort of information has uncovered secrets, either.

A company called Strava had earlier released a “heat map” of their products’ usage which publicly revealed a number of secret military installations where personnel were wearing their devices.

Trump Piles On After Mueller Neuters Buzzfeed’s Supposed “Bombshell”

Will the media ever recover from this embarrassment, or will the President ride this wave of uncertainty into a full scale attack on the mainstream?

When Buzzfeed purported to drop a massive bombshell on the Trump campaign yesterday, we had our doubts.

After all, this is the “news” source that brought you articles such as “The 35 Times People Forgot Seth McFarlane was Hot”, and other assorted nonsense. 

Simply put, Mueller let us all know that this was fake news.

Now, after the debacle at one point looked threatening to the Oval Office, Donald Trump is piling on the insults over the botched story.

President Donald Trump ridiculed BuzzFeed on Saturday as “disgraceful” after the website published a Russia story special counsel Robert Mueller’s team declared inaccurate.

“Many people are saying that the Mainstream Media will have a very hard time restoring credibility because of the way they have treated me over the past 3 years (including the election lead-up), as highlighted by the disgraceful Buzzfeed story & the even more disgraceful coverage!” he wrote on Saturday morning.

BuzzFeed reported Friday that the president may have committed perjury by instructing his personal lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about his business dealings with Russia.

Yesterday’s whirlwind of events was a wild one, that’s for sure.

“Buzzfeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” special counsel spokesperson Peter Carr said in a statement.

Despite Mueller’s statement, BuzzFeed editors demanded Mueller clarify which part of the report he was disputing.

Trump also reminded followers that BuzzFeed had published the unverified “dossier” Democrats created to smear his presidency before it began.

“A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!” he wrote.

Will the media ever recover from this embarrassment, or will the President ride this wave of uncertainty into a full scale attack on the mainstream?

If we know Trump, our money is on the latter.
