Somebody in the Bureau of Prisons is Lying

Former Congressman Steve Stockman has gone through the internal required process to request transfer to home confinement in order to shelter-at-home in the face of the COVID-19 epidemic. Citing her husband’s several CDC identified COVID risk factors, Stockman’s wife, Patti, issued a tearful plea in early April to President Trump to ensure her husband was moved home to escape the deadly virus. However, Stockman remains in prison, the sole remaining elderly diabetic prisoner at Beaumont Prison Camp in Texas.

The Mainstream Media’s Malignant Moral Narcissism

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

The moral narcissism of our media has become more severe almost by the day. They admit nothing. What was their role in the promulgation of the Steele dossier when so many, it has become obvious, knew it was a fraud? Do they wish they had said something as it took off and became the bogus linchpin of the Russia investigation? We are now a nation divided as never since the Civil War and these media lies are largely the instigator of that. This is especially bad because, coming out of a pandemic, the likelihood of our society to have the ability to work together is seriously undermined, perhaps for years to come.

The Hunting of the President

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Who are the people to be indicted for leaking the contents of the Flynn-Kislyak call all those years ago? Well, Richard Grenell, the national intelligence director, just supplied us with a list of likely culprits. They are people who submitted unmasking requests regarding the name of Mr. Flynn. It is not a long list, and it includes several very famous names, for instance: former UN Ambassador Samantha Power, former national intelligence director James Clapper, and former vice president Joe Biden. Yes, Joe Biden is on the list. Say it isn’t so, Joe. You were just getting your Basement Campaign underway.

The Left Is What It Once Loathed

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

The more one is insulated from the downside of one’s abstract progressivism, the louder and more vehemently he expresses it. Move Nancy Pelosi’s palazzo to the border, subject Bill Gates to Bernie Sanders’s wealth tax and his envisioned 70 percent tax rate, have Dianne Feinstein or Gavin Newsom live in an inner-city neighborhood or make NBA stars follow Chinese rules of collective bargaining and state-mandated compensation, or subject Samantha Power, Bruce Ohr, John Brennan, and Andrew McCabe to federal indictments, and Barack Obama to an impeachment charade and we would not have what is now the progressive party.

In Praise Of Catherine Herridge

Where were the opposing voices in the breathless CBS News “reporting” on the Russiagate hoax? Nowhere to be found of course, because the totally false Trump – Russian collusion was the narrative that Democrats and their Deep State allies wanted to establish as the “truth.” In our view busting that narrative was Catherine Herridge’s real sin in the eyes of her liberal media colleagues at CBS and elsewhere.

‘Obamagate’ Isn’t A Conspiracy Theory, It’s The Biggest Political Scandal Of Our Time

John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist

Instead of grappling with the implications of newly released details about what Obama officials were doing to undermine the incoming Trump administration during the transition, the mainstream media have fixated on Trump’s use of the term “Obamagate,” dismissing it as a conspiracy theory. It's easy to get overwhelmed or tune it out, but the ongoing revelations about the FBI’s targeting of Flynn can’t be ignored. They demand a full accounting. If ever there was a threat to the rule of law, it was the Obama administration’s abuse of power and its weaponization of intelligence agencies to try and take down Trump.

Disgraced Do-Nothing RINO Richard Burr Out As Senate Intel Committee Chairman

It is hard to think of a Republican Senator more worthless and feckless than RINO Richard Burr of North Carolina.The FBI is now looking into Burr’s stock trades and federal agents seized his cellphone. The Senator turned over his phone to agents after they served a search warrant on him at his residence in the Washington area, and he has subsequently resigned as Chairman of Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

What we still don't know about the Michael Flynn case

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The public needs to know more details about the way the FBI handled the politically sensitive case. And even more specifically, how do we know what Flynn said in that interview on Jan. 24? Is it any wonder why Republicans have had questions about the Flynn prosecution? Now, it appears to have come to nothing with the Justice Department's move to drop the case against Flynn. But even if Judge Emmet Sullivan, as expected, dismisses the charges, there are still things, important things, the public needs to know about the case — like what, precisely, was said during that fateful interview at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017?

Piecing together the ‘phony’ case against Michael Flynn

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Rep. Adam Schiff didn’t want the public to realize that top members of the Obama administration had blown the collusion narrative to smithereens. One after another, James Clapper, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates and others said some version of “I know of no evidence linking the Trump campaign to Russia.” This was terrible news for Schiff, who released the documents only because the White House threatened to if he didn’t. Schiff, recall, relentlessly insisted he had seen lots of collusion evidence. Maybe he needs an eye test. Clearly, there is no such evidence because there was no collusion.

What did Joe Biden know about Michael Flynn?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Republicans, as they tried to figure out what steps the intelligence and law enforcement agencies took against incoming President Trump, have always wondered what Obama knew about it. But now, it just so happens that another person who was in the room -- the Oval Office -- is running for president. So it seems reasonable to ask what Joe Biden knew about the intelligence and law enforcement efforts against the Trump team. Trump campaign spokesman Matt Wolking said, "The corrupt media will do its best to cover up this scandal and protect him, but Americans deserve to know: What did Joe Biden know and when did he know it?"

In Dealing with Flynn, Comey’s FBI Acted Like the KGB

Christopher Roach, American Greatness

It is hard to overstate the damage this has done to the country and the FBI’s reputation. Serious people are flirting with the idea that the FBI should be abolished altogether. In 2016 and 2017, the FBI (along with the NSA and CIA) perpetrated KGB-style interference with an orderly, peaceful transition of power after an election. They are public servants. What happened to Flynn is quite simply an atrocity. Everyone responsible should lose their jobs, if Flynn’s lawyers betrayed their client they should be disbarred, and the whole crew of plotters should be hauled off to jail. And Michael Flynn deserves his job back.

America Doesn’t Have A Justice System Anymore

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

It’s more than just galling. A free society cannot exist like this long and remain a free society. These people, who we trusted with the most solemn of duties, betrayed their oaths and betrayed us for grubby political advantage. This was not done for some higher purpose. They are worse than the gangsters the FBI became famous chasing. These disgraces, who frame political opponents, pretended to be public servants upholding their oaths while their criminal treachery served only their cheesy ambition. At least Willie Sutton was honest enough to admit (perhaps apocryphally) that he robbed banks because “That’s where the money is.”

Democrats' moral compass broken beyond repair

Robert Knight, Washington Times

Mr. Comey, who also leaked a memo about his confidential conversation with President Trump that wound up in The New York Times, was hired by the College of William & Mary to teach a course in “ethical leadership.” The average American looks at all this and can’t help asking if any of these leftist miscreants will ever face justice or at least not be rewarded. We have never seen anything like the three-and-a-half year war engaged by America’s domestic enemies against an elected president. Some might call it treason. It sure isn’t “loyal opposition.” Our only hope is that the truth will get out despite the media’s best efforts to quash it.

Why Michael Flynn Was Set Up

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Bringing down Flynn was a two-for, striking a blow at the new president while hopefully helping preserve Barack Obama's Iran Deal. The second part didn’t work, but the first did… for a while. It’s therefore not totally surprising that the newly-revealed documents have “SCO “ (Special Counsels Office) scrawled on them, among other incriminating notes. That means these statements exculpating Trump’s newly-appointed National Security Adviser went to Mueller’s office where someone (Mueller? Weissman?) ignored them and continued with what Trump has colloquially, and I think too loosely, branded a “hoax.” It was far more than that.

The dishonest pursuit of Michael Flynn

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Today, more than two years since a federal judge ordered the government to hand over evidence that might exonerate Gen. Michael Flynn, do we finally see just how dishonest and conniving federal investigators were in pursuing him. These goons, you see, were not after justice or the truth or enforcing laws enacted to protect national security. They were entirely focused on punishing a political enemy. Why waste time with all the hurdles and loopholes of a legal prosecution when you can punish the man by getting him fired and leaving him financially destitute? Oh, and screw his silly military service. That holds no currency in this town.

When And How Will Gen. Mike Flynn Be Made Whole?

The financial and reputational ruin visited upon General Flynn is especially grievous when one considers that vile people like Christine Blasey Ford and Stormy Daniels raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for their “legal defense” but a good man like General Flynn has been destroyed, not for lying to the FBI, but for telling the truth about the failures of Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Horowitz report is enough to make J. Edgar Hoover blush

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

FBI agents — operating at the behest of powerful appointees of the Obama administration — deliberately doctored foreign intelligence to obtain secret warrants to spy on an active political campaign. Here in the U.S. This is no longer opinion or speculation. This is fact, backed up by exhaustive investigation and extensive evidence. The fact that these massive abuses are getting short-shrift in the media today only reveals the extent to which the media has been a co-conspirator in this travesty. They have become outright defenders of a police state, where spying on innocent Americans seeking political office is now perfectly acceptable to them.

Declassifications Show Durham Is Democrats’ Worst Nightmare

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Let’s hope the CCP virus is no longer too heavily with us this summer because America is going to need its full attention, or what’s left of it, for what’s coming down the pike—the Durham Report and all that entails. The Chinese communists apparently fudged the data on the CCP virus, commonly called the novel coronavirus, and lied about it, but what is becoming clear is that our FBI, at least part of it, is or was not all that much better. Who among the Democrats will have the courage to stand up against this? I am sad to say that I am skeptical that any will. The results, where it might lead, might be too devastating for them to handle.

Have Sara Carter And Sen. Chuck Grassley Got FBI Spy Stefan Halper Cornered?

Sara Carter’s reporting and Senator Grassley’s oversight investigation of ONA spending on questionable “research” contracts are slowly putting Stefan Halper and his paymaster, ONA Director James Baker, in a corner. Sooner or later one of them is going to have to come clean about their role in the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign.

Full Metal Jacket Star Adam Baldwin Performing Dramatic Readings From DOJ IG Report

Turning the Hollywood stunt of having Leftwing actors read the Mueller Report on its head, our friends Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney are producing a must listen series of podcasts featuring “Full Metal Jacket” star Adam Baldwin doing dramatic readings from Inspector General Michael Horowitz’ report outlining the origins of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign.
