I never cease to be amazed at the crap the media feeds us including the opinions of journalists just barely able to peel bananas with their hands.The otiose schemes the deranged Left keeps pushing is the political danger to Pres. Trump should he fires Mueller. Oh, the humanity of it!
Well, let’s get on with it; watch where the smoke comes from then put out the fire. This wasted, year long Mueller drama which all but indites Hillary Clinton and her coterie of conspirators in the DOJ, the FBI, the IRS and the State Dept. as the true criminals, needs to be resolved and soon. The patience of the American voters who put Trump in office is growing thin. They will not abandon Trump when the real problems are so clear. Heads must roll and then we can heal the wounds,and work to return to a true constitutional republic like the founders envisioned.
“Is their a constitutional confrontation in the offing?” asks one headline. The article posits the notion that Mueller is nearly omnipotent in fighting crime and or evil and has the power and authority like a Grand Wizard, to demand the President of the United States present himself before a Grand Jury, presumably to arrange his public execution by burning at the stake. Right!
The article allows that the President has some outs like any other citizen, such as invoking his 5th amendment rights; that he can simply remove the Deputy. AG, who hired Mueller after Jeff Sessions abdicated his responsibility, daring to face the slings and arrows, that will come or, he could simply swat the Mueller nuisance away, de-fund the investigation and move on, a proposal most Americans really want. It reminds us that the president is not “above the law” but fails to warn us that Hillary Clinton, the corrupt James Comey, Loretta Lynch, et. al., are above the law. “Oh, the harm it would do to the FBI’s reputation..& etc., etc.” Well, the top management has been exposed as a nest of vipers and does need to be cleaned out, the sooner the better.
We know that the Supreme Court ruled that Nixon, who did have tapes and records, had to produce them as physical evidence. What does Trump have to produce he hasn’t already freely given? Nothing, so the hunt goes on until they find something. They can forget any more Stormy Daniels stories. No body cares. Bill Clinton saw to that. That’s old news. The issue behind the issues here is that the Democrats have no issues they can convince Americans to embrace other than the Obama socialist disaster that Trump is now happily discarding. They can run on no other issue except “hate Trump” because he beat ‘em soundly, leaving them bereft of power and like Biblical Moses, wandering aimlessly in the Sinai. Listening to the morose former House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi is evidence enough of that.
It’s in their best interests to attack Trump, in fact it’s their only interest if they dream of ever recapturing the Congress again but, I suspect “dreams” are not policies. Democrat dreams cannot possibly move or replace Trumps successes like his tax cuts, killing the regulation state, his rising employment and GDP numbers and low unemployment rates, ripping America away from stupid trade deals that have hurt us, and ignoring the pseudo science environmental nonsense that the left believes will empower them to create their ‘dreamed’ one world order to save the planet. More importantly, he’s not afraid to face off Iran, which is facing its own internal problems, and the North Korean dingbat who pushed himself onto the world stage as a nuclear competitor and now can’t let go. Trump, the protagonist, has challenged them all and they react as he has expected them to. The Democrats are in disarray, Iran has squandered the billions Obama gave him and are almost broke and Kim is in fear of losing it all by his over extension.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
It’s Sine Die day, that means it’s the last day of the 2018 Legislative Session! Interviews First Vice Chairman of Georgia Congress 9th District GOP Rebecca Yardley on the experience and what to expect from the Georgia Capitol today!
Opinion written by George McClellan:
I’m coming around to a concept that, because it is so near it can’t really be seen except when some significant event should occur that draws specific attention to itself. That significant event is the continuing dismay over Donald Trump’s election. It is the bizarre fact that the new CPUSA, or whatever one wishes to call it, no longer resides within the bosom of the Democrat Party, i.e.: Schumer, Pelosi and company, but in the colossus that is the floundering main street media, the forth estate so to speak, particularly the cable networks. They have rallied from their shock and are pushing the marxist narrative, the Democrat party be damned.
The raging demands of White House reporters, editorial staffs, commentators, essayists and etc., appear to be in unison, dedicated to destroying Donald Trump or neutralizing any appointment he makes, any E.O. he signs and challenging any statement he offers. They don’t wait for Chuckie Schumer or Nancy Pelosi to pontificate on issues, but force them into making absurd comments, then running with their own commentary anyway. Anderson Cooper and Rachael Madcow are but two good examples, not to mention the awful example of disrespect Lester Holt of ABC showed to the President in his one on one interview.
The Comey firing presents the latest example of media dysfunction. The media expect certain reactions to follow predictable outcomes and when they don’t get them, they manufacture ‘em. All agree Comey usurped the authority of Attorney General, Loretta Lynch in his confirmations of Hillary Clinton’s high crimes and misdemeanors then telling the world she lacked intent, and therefore would not be prosecuted, while at the same time sending other classified document offenders off to prison for lesser, but still serious offenses.
American’s, who voted Trump for President, see no justice here. They see that media corruption is as rampant as the establishments and are perplexed that the media does nothing to help the President press his winning promise to drain the swamp, but actually gets in his way by spreading fake news, lies and innuendos, challenging his every decision, remark and action like he’s an uninformed idiot. The media is the new enemy of constitutionalism since the old Democrat party is but a vague shell of itself, a mere shadow on the wall of political events, ineffective, redundant and obsolete. But, not wanting to appear as anything other than a fair “news source,” the media pretends to be concerned with events, while at the same time they drive them or worse, create them. Republicans are clueless on how to respond.
Sundays cable news shows, starting with Chris Wallace on Fox, and Chuck Todd on his channel, and others, want to appear to be objective in their lines of inquiry but whenever they meet the slightest opposition by a ‘guest’ they are interrogating, they push back with a degree of vehemence we’re unaccustomed to seeing. Interviewers should at all costs be phlegmatic but Wallace has even gotten testy when his assumptions are challenged and worse, when they are denied. His body language in his chair is a dead give-away, reinforced by overrunning the guest speaker with one new question after another leaving the question, not the answer to hang as a truth. It all appears to be an attempt at “gorkking” that satisfies only the interviewer who can then assume viewers agree with him. “Sorry, The matter is settled because time has expired.”
I like Reince Priebus as an interviewee. He doesn’t take any crap off Wallace the several times I’ve seen him and indeed, he’s the only one so far, that makes Wallace squirm in his seat for a better launching position, one supposes, for his next stupid question. It’s from the arena of public concern that changes must come. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (12May17)
Opinion written by George McClellan:
Yesterday, I expounded upon the problem of leadership, or lack of it, demonstrated by United Airlines. By no means does United stand alone in its failings of leadership. Our ability as a nation to make righteous decisions, or bad ones, comes after decades of progressivism that has denied Americans the right to think for themselves and do what’s right, but do only what feels good and what the rule book allows.
The United Airlines incident reveals exactly the same degree of time warped decision making that allowed the government of Bill Clinton to drag a screaming, fearful little Cuban boy, Julian Gonzales, at gun point, out of the closet of a relatives happy home in Miami, Florida, to be forcibly returned to a despotic communist regime for a proper readjustment of his values. It’s what makes fools like Obama think that by opening doors to that failed communist state, America will be the better for it. It’s why “Rules of Engagement” for our military have been so restricted that the numbers of our killed and maimed soldiers has risen so highly. They can’t attack and kill the enemy lest the enemy should be offended. “War is hell!” but not for them.
What was the point in both United’s forcible removal, and Clinton’s Gonzales cases? It is the same level of leadership that operates in that liberal/progressive/fascist climate of management that ignores the rule of law, abandons the rule of common sense and forsakes the rules of good manners. For United, it could not have been for the bottom line, could it? Was it a power play? No, it was inviolable, pre-ordained policy. What was Bill Clinton’s reason? He blamed Janet Reno. He couldn’t make a righteous on the spot decision. Neither could United. It’s a mind set!
Progressive-Socialists always mean well regardless of the unintended consequences of their actions. As they only intend the best for their customer(s), employees or the general public, they should, naturally, be forgiven. Schedules have to be maintained, crews returned to their home bases, and rules obeyed, that sort of thing. It’s what Progressives do. It’s how they live, work and operate. It’s how they’ve screwed up America. It’s polite evil!
Another example, “Gun free zones!” Only a rabid do good’er could possibly think up such idiotic nonsense. Zero tolerance rules and “gun free zones,” have left the streets of our cities, the floors of our classrooms, and the crowded dance halls of night clubs littered with the dead and bleeding bodies of innocent people because Progressivism demands an environment of “zero tolerance.” Where does most of America’s gun violence occurred? In Zero Tolerance gun free zones. The whole city of Chicago is a gun free zone and the death count there, by guns alone, is absolutely staggering. Their decision, ban guns not shooters.
For most Americans, the biggest offenders are the bureaucracies’ of the Federal Government, the IRS, EPA, USDA, BLM & etc. who use their own little made up rules as clubs against citizens simply trying to earn a decent living. For example, Obama’s health care rules demanded all citizens, except Congressmen, enroll in his wealth redistribution plan or pay a financial penalty. EPA steals a ranchers inalienable right to use his property because, the EPA say’s, such use could adversely affect a tiny fish a thousand miles down stream. We can all recite similar atrocities from our own experience, United Airlines simply revealed them.
America is under new leadership. Until Trump, there was no evidence of positive leadership at any level, corporate or government, only the rule book. People were afraid to make decisions. The inviolable rules of engagements, the pre-ordained mind-set, has neutered Americans. Screw up and blame the rule book. Beat up somebody and blame the victim. That’s how it is!
Opinion written by George McClellan:
Trump is no dummy and should not be underestimated as evidenced by the skill he employed in neutralizing his main internal enemy, FBI Director James Comey. Perhaps Trump’s other adversaries should think about looking for good lawyers. Evidence, not innuendo, rumors or fake news like the “Comey Memo,” is starting to reveal the real depths of corruption that infects the highest levels of the FBI and DoJ. Comey’s job, was simply to protect the establishment, the one he was invited to join many years ago. How else could a civil servant, a DoJ lawyer on a scheduled income, become a multi-millionaire? Corrupt politics of course.
As always, follow the money! Even as far back as George H.W. Bush’s administration the money string, then as now, always seems to lead back to the cash pit that was Saudi Arabia, a Wahhabis Islamic country still funding the creation of Islamic schools in the west.
Back then, the Saudi’s had an iron grip on world energy production through OPEC. George H.W. Bush, was then an advisor of influence for the Carlyle Group investment firm and apparently had a hand in arranging a billion dollar investment, to help his friends, from a Saudi family named the bin Laden’s. Carlyle is the largest financier of weapons in the world, buying up defense companies whenever and where ever they can. The Bush’s, father and son are, or were, both paid adviser to the firm. Making money for their investors is their business and war and conflict is the vehicle that drives it,….follow the money!
At that time the FBI Director was one Robert Mueller, probably directly responsible for America not being prepared for the 9/11 attack by officially ignoring the warnings. A Judicial Watch inquiry reports that Director Mueller killed an FBI counter-terrorism initiative out of the Chicago Field Office that was following a Saudi money laundering scheme that revealed that an imminent attack against America was probable. That attack occurred on 9/11.
In 2013, there was much ‘too do’ about Obama nominating James Comey, a Republican, as Director of the FBI to replace the retiring Robert Muller. But, for the establishment elites he was the perfect choice because Comey, like many aspiring government attorneys looking for wealth and advancement, can wear any hat that fits the need, in this case maintaining the status quo of the elite, corrupt federal government. Comey’s was picked because of his long connections with the Clinton’s formed years earlier when he was a very young, eager assistant AG.
Jump forward to today and, because of Trump, the evidence of government corruption is spilling out with revelations that intelligence agencies and the FBI, under Obama, systematically violated Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by illegally eavesdropping on millions of Americans. Susan Rice, Obama’s National Security Advisor, for political reasons, was a willing participant to protect the government. Now, it’s to protect them from Trump.
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) is apoplectic learning that their authority to protect the 4th Amendment rights of American citizens was simply ignored by Obama, the FBI and the NSA. Indeed, it was the FBI Directors main job to protect the elites, old and new, from investigations like Clintons for example, which he did. Comey is now gone and all bets are off. Comey’s ‘evidence’ now lies in the hands of the new US Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.
Power, and the deadly potential of its use, has shifted hands. The media’s attacks on Trump will continue, so watch for the radical democrats to slow down a bit and let the media carry their water. Trump will do what he has to do. It is imperative if America is to survive.
Opinion by George McClellan:
Stick a fork in her. Hillary is done…or is she? We may hope so, but wherever we turn there she is again lecturing us on the Russians stealing the election for Trump. Will she never go away? OMG, like a bad dream, no, a reoccurring nightmare, she walks among us now, zombie like, with yet another excuse for her failures. Hillary Clinton is a textbook example of a schizoid personality given her rants on every platform the leftist media makes available to her. They might be getting a little tired of her by now.
Perhaps they are letting her vent in order that she will finally exhaust her bile, quit the race and go home. But, I don’t see that happening. She hasn’t yet finished seeking out the many other scoundrels to blame for her failure to become Americas first unqualified female President. If that doesn’t work, and it won’t, look for her daughters smiley face to shine daily over the eastern horizon like the rising morning sun, reminding us all of what’s in store for us just down the road.
One would have thought that her attacks on the DNC, throwing them under the bus for lack of support and poor data, would have been enough but, even here she fails to realize the Democrat Party is a creature of former president Obama and Obama hates the Clintons.
In new developments Senator Chuck Grassley has requested the Secretary of State to provide his Senate Judicial Committee with all emails, State Department records and communications related to Hillary Clintons’ interference with official investigations by 15 June. The senator also inquired if the matter had been referred to the Department of Justice or the State Department’s inspector general and, “If not, why not?”
It is specifically alleged that Clinton, as Obama’s SoS, sent senior U.S. diplomats to Bangladesh to pressure that country’s Prime Minister, Sheik Hasina and her son Sajeeb Wazed to kill a corruption investigation of the 70 year old managing director of the state-owned Bangladesh bank and the Grameen Bank. His name is Yunus. Clinton apparently threatened Wazed with an IRS tax audit if his mum, the Prime Minister, didn’t withdraw from the corruption probe. Wazed has lived in the U.S. for 17 years and has business ties here.
Grassley, in his official letter to SoS Rex Tillerson, asked: “If the Secretary of State used her position to intervene in an independent investigation by a sovereign government simply because of a personal and financial relationship stemming from the Clinton Foundation rather than the legitimate foreign policy interests of the United States, then that would be unacceptable.
Co-mingling her official position as Secretary of State with her family foundation would be similarly inappropriate. It is vital to determine whether the State Department had any role in the threat of an IRS audit against the son of the Prime Minister in retaliation for this investigation.”
In 2011, the state-owned Grameen Bank removed the unhappy Yunus from his directorship as a result of the government’s investigations into his financial misappropriations. Apparently he cheated the Grameen Banks loan program for poor peasants and women to the tune of about $100 million. US AID, under Clinton, awarded eighteen grants, contracts and loans to Yunus’ American based foundations, and he donated $25 to $50,000, to the Clinton Foundation.
Wazed has told all so, obstruction and interference is no longer available to protect Hillary Clinton. Neither is the former Director of the FBI, James Comey. Don’t expect his testimony Thursday to count for anything. It’s CYA time. “The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of man?…The Chickens are coming home to roost!

Opinion written by George McClellan:
So, the Republican House has finally passed an excuse for a Repeal and Replace bill of the Unaffordable No care Act, aka: Obamacare. Don’t bet on it. Be suspicious, very suspicious. Trump is a populist and as such, he’s combatting not only the now childish Democrat party of useful idiots, apparatchiks dedicated to a socialist America but, more especially, he’s facing an entrenched “establishment’ party cunningly disguised as conservative Republican’s, equally dedicated to his destruction because he’s promised to root out political corruption in our body politic, i.e.: Drain the Swamp. Remember, the ADA was only a wealth transfer scheme.
It would seem the Democrats role in the “establishment” government has been seriously eroded in the last three election cycles and in their demise, unaccustomed as they are to losing, they want to take Republican’s, what’s left of ’em, with them. Alas, If only that were the case. The Democrats (Marxists) will never die. They will poke up here and there like weeds in a garden that constantly need hoeing and a populist Americans will be forced to contend with them seemingly forever, until they should recover and take all. There will be no more “next times.”
America’s war with Socialism, starting with the collapse of the Soviet Union, will be a never ending contest of wills, between those who believe governments purpose is to provide all for its denizens, from cradle to grave, and those who don’t. Education is not required in their plan because government will do all the thinking. How’s that been going so far?
Others, schooled in Constitutional republicanism, where citizens are allowed to compete in a free market and rise or fall according to their abilities is anathema to socialists and a danger to their plan. Education is cherished in this environment because a thinking citizen is a free citizen and a free citizen is a producer, not a taker.
The Left uses the term “Nazi” as a club to shut down dissent, debate and free speech. It’s only a word but its connotation is fearful, or once was. Except for the odd neanderthal “skin heads” and outlaw motorcyclists who fancy themselves as bad characters, we don’t have a problem with Nazi’s any more because upon the conclusion of World War Two, the victors swarmed over Germany and conducted a brutal program of denazification.
High Nazi Party officials and military General Staff officers complicit in the crimes of the Third Reich, were imprisoned, tried and either executed or jailed according to court verdicts. In the field, lesser officials were likewise apprehended and tried, without the burdens of a public Nuremberg scenario, and shot or hanged according to the desire of the occupying force that captured them. Many others were disposed of in extra-judicial proceeding and others were hunted down and terminated in foreign countries where they hid but, Germany was denazified.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, without war or occupying forces, the poison of Marxism continued to roil about and spread in the educational systems of western countries until, by slow degrees, the children of the West, as Marx predicted, became the socialists and anarchists we face on our streets today. The fascist phenomena of a spreading Islam is just another piece of the radicalization of the west, a long term Soviet plan that never stopped functioning just because the Soviet Union collapsed. What happened to Gorbachev, the USSR’s last leader? He’s operating a Think Tank in San Francisco. Look at the dysfunction of our government today. Its the lingering result of Marxism still doing its dirty work. We must be constantly aware. Trumps victory did not stop the rot, but it is a good beginning. We must never, ever give up.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. No,w, go get ‘em! (05 May 17)
Opinion written by George McClellan:
Crimes of “sedition” are not common jurisprudence in America although it take place with daily regularity. They were tried once but flew in the face of the 1st Amendment and were abandoned almost as fast as they were enacted by colonial era outrage. Briefly, “Sedition” is conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of the state or monarch. America was founded by sedition against George III and should not be denied to future populations.
In today’s highly charged political atmosphere only the Democrats and their propaganda machine the Leftist media, outwardly conform to the pure definition of “sedition.” Their aim is to incite people to rebel against Donald Trump and the Republicans. In some undemocratic countries, Venezuela for example, they would already be in prison or executed.
James Comey, the former FBI Director, a clumsy bureaucrat who sought through rhetorical machinations to redefine the meanings of law (intent), and the meaning of responsibility by declining to focus on the real high crimes and misdemeanors apparent to nearly everyone simply to protect the Progressive candidate, caused his own firing. He was political.
Comey usurped the authority of the equally seditious Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, and succeeded only in damaging his personal reputation and destroying the confidence of the FBI Special Agents Corps. in his leadership. These actions caused undue turmoil for the boss and it’s really not a good idea to irritate the boss, especially one who is attempting to deconstruct the long entrenched corruption that is the DC swamp in which Comey revealed himself as a denizen. Comey must have thought he was dealing with stupid people in President Trump and the White House staff. So, for this essay, sedition is out but, the crime of “misprision” is not.
There are three basic elements to misprision, i.e: concealing a crime, that apply. First, is seditious conduct against the government or courts, already mentioned. Treason applies here but that requires positive evidence far beyond circumstantial, to even be considered, with first hand witnesses testimony, that sort of thing. Many of Obama’s senior staff could, by their conduct under cover of authority, be investigated for treason, including Obama himself, simply by his willful violation of the Constitution and the crimes against Americans they perpetrated.
To his credit, Comey did not flinch with Lynch after her hoped for secret meeting with Bill Clinton was exposed. For Lynch, her conduct was a misprision, being a collusion, with intent, to affect the election in favor of Hillary Clinton. These are felonies. In this case, it specifically focuses on Lynch’s neglect or wrongful performance of official duty.
The final element of misprision includes the concealment of treason or a felony by one who is not a participant. Here, the field is wide open to criminal investigation requiring strong leadership in the highest levels of the criminal justice division of both the DoJ and FBI. Politics takes a hand here as well, with political party’s jockeying to avoid having their schemes exposed as either stupid or criminal, what ever applies, and keeping their people out of jail.
By congressional agreement, the Director of the FBI was granted a ten year term not to be interfered with by politics. It was necessary that the director not be political or make the FBI a political machine for either party, but to protect America and its Constitution. Comey failed here in all parts and that’s why he’s gone. When Trust is gone so is efficiency. Trump did what he promised to do, continue to drain the swamp. Comey could not be trusted. He’s gone! Simple!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! 11may17)
