Thanks Molly..

At the risk of repeating myself... I have seen these "inquiries" and reviews come and go and nothing ever results. People LIE (obviously) and/or refuse to testify. At the moment the people doing the "investigations" are some of the corrupt crooks who have repeatedly been the offenders... and I dont see them indicting themselves.

NOTHING will change until we have somebody in charge with passion and drive to indict criminals... a guy who will employ a TEAM hell bent on catching criminals. That is NOT Jeff Sessions... and certainly not the career criminals below him in charge of DOJ and FBI.

The Evidence is real, the Indictments are Fake...

I DO NOT see any sort of BIG UGLY being nigh! :roll

If there is to be any sort of PURGE of DOJ/ FBI /OBAMA/ CLINTON /DEEP STATE....

What might start the "Big Ugly" ball rolling is JEFF SESSIONS woken up (at the least).... I think he needs to be FIRED and replaced with a proper AG... and further than that... I think his lack of action is more than him just being a sleepy, hopeless old fart.. he is CORRUPT and part of the operation.... blocking investigation and indictments. Sessions could himself be the first indictment that get "The Big Ugly" started.

IF there truly was a a genuine change/ purge underway, then people would have been fired/ indicted as evidence emerged... not merely moved to another task still within DOJ/FBI. Major crooks like Comey, Hillary, McCabe etc (where Clear evidence of crimes exists) would be in prison.. not out selling books (and a narrative) and stirring up a fan base on social media, and even "MSM". Jeff Sessions SHOULD have been directing and supervising investigations and indictments from day 1. It is hardly good enough.. even if he wakes up soon (after April)... a lot of crooks have been allowed to do more damage.. and hide evidence of past crimes.

The Evidence is real, the Indictments are Fake...

I still see people who think that that the OIG REPORT is being released (to the public) on January the 15th 2018.

This is not true. It never was true. I guess these people were told that by some Guru/seer that they worship/follow blindly, but it is wrong.
There has been an undertaking (by OIG) to supply documents to The Senate Judiciary committee by 15th January, but that's it! The only statement I have seen regarding the OIG REPORT itself, is that they "Aim" to finish the report by "March/April" 2018, but we all know such vague deadlines are typically exceeded, and even if the report is done by April there is no promise to make all, or even part, of it PUBLIC. When the alleged "1.2 million" documents are handed over to Senate Judiciary committee... even if they work at twice their normal speed.. it will take them months to read them, let alone have meetings about them, let alone make any recommendations based on them. And.. WTF are they going to recommend? Yet another SENATE inquiry? And another report? All reports are good for is supplying a reason for another report :roll


Furthermore, many hysterical people on the "right" have convinced themselves that the OIG is engaged in a full Investigation of Crime and corruption... with all aspects fully investigated. Nothing could be further from the truth. The OIG (from last days of Obama Administration) embarked on an inquiry, a review of DOJ /FBI activity leading up to the 2016 election. It may or may not extend to activity since the election, but is is just a "Review" and not a a criminal investigation. I dont know what powers the OIG has to COMPEL people to testify, and to subpoena documents etc.. but I am sure it is way short of an official FBI criminal investigation, utilizing an empaneled Grand Jury to seek subpoenas, search warrants etc.
It is ludicrous, for instance, to imagine that the OIG is obtaining it's own FISA warrants :roll

At best the OIG report will supply details of corruption the public already know about in general terms, and ranking officials in DOJ/FBI already know about in enough detail to warrant a Criminal Investigation, if not already issue indictments.The fact that they have not already issued indictments indicates that they do not have the will to do it. Jeff Sessions is AWOL.. or actively assisting in blocking criminal investigations. Maybe the BEST hope for a good outcome from OIG report is if it points to Jeff Sessions' complicity in the corruption. With Jeff Sessions fired/indicted and replace we can at least START the proper criminal investigation that should have been started a year ago.

WOW. Dang. Brilliant analysis of what is happening, Rumpole. I'm NOT referencing the meme that says "It's Begun"... :84 That one has me ROTFLMAO! Oh my gosh. Help me up off the floor.

I'd like to add all the subpoenas to those involved, that are ignored... maybe more people testifying and taking the Fifth, or blatantly not showing up. Rescheduling and more subpoenas right before the summer break for Congress. Then everything will be focused on the primaries and who knows what else will come up to the forefront of urgency by then.

I've been thinking ALL night, who will be the first person to be indicted/charged/arrested/tried.

I can not think of ONE name I would bet on.

It's a political circus and I keep seeing a bear on a bicycle riding in circles. :lol

Teheran "Economic" Protests

I have NOT followed this news yet, but....

On the face of it... offering support and encouragement (let alone assistance) to a mob of "protesters" seems hypocritical at least.. and somewhat NUTS.. given the obvious comparison with recent rioting mobs in USA who dont deserve "support".
Imagine the Occupy, BLM, Antfa, pussy hat, Communist morons in USA... and think on before cheering on rioting mobs in other countries :roll

The good news is.....
This sounds like a perfect opportunity to Send Reb Z on an "overseas assignment"
He could take Blossom Masri with him as an interpretor/ Advison on Arab (spitting) culture.

Donald Trump's Magic Trick

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton made a joint visit to a bakery while campaigning.

While in the bakery, Hillary sneaks three pastries into her pocket, and whispers to Trump, "See how clever I am? The Owner didn't see anything and I didn't need to lie. That's why I'm going to win the election."

Trump says to Hillary, "That's so typical of you: trickery, deceit and theft. Now I'm going to show you how to get the same result honestly."

Trump says to the bakery owner, "Give me three pastries and I'll show you a magic trick." The baker gives Trump three pastries and he eats one after the other.

The baker is wondering what the magic trick is and asks Trump, "So? Where did they go?"

Spoiler:
Trump says, "Look in Hillary's pocket."

:77

Iranian Protests/Riots persist

On the face of it... overthrowing the Mullahs seems like a good idea. They being "evil-doers"...State sponsors of terror etc. but...

I certainly don't think the US (or any other foreign power) should get involved. (stop if they already are).

As I recall... angry mobs in Iran (with backing from USA) demanded (and got) the removal of The Shah and the takeover by the Mullahs in the first place... it's only been 40 years since then. Angry mobs are like road bypasses I guess... you just have to have them? Certainly there will always be those who have "grievances". Popular Western opinion at the moment is that the MOB in Iran is comprised of "good guys" (and gals) ... "Freedom fighters". Maybe they are? Maybe not? One man's "freedom fighter" could easily be another man's terrorist. Whatever comes of this current uprising... there will still be mobs of people in Iran dissatisfied... chanting death to Israel, death to America. Iran will still be supporting terrorists like Hezbollah. Iran will still be developing nuclear weapons.

And, regardless of the "cause" in Iran this time around, it sets a dangerous precedent if angry mobs (started as protest over prices/demands for more welfare) are given in to(appeased).
Today Iran... tomorrow? Who knows?
Hands up, Impeach Trump. MAGA Open Borders. Global warming is science :doh


ETA
There now seems to be widespread clamoring and "HOPE" that the rioters will get their way...
Regime change in Iran?
I can not remember a "regime change" in the Middle East ever working out well?

The "ALT" Gang

I really do appreciate the rise of "ALT" media, blogs, YT, etc.

Obviously it is by definition an ALTERNATIVE to so called MSM (Fake News) It can be a source of news unedited... raw footage from which to draw one's own conclusions and of course it often presents info that would not even be covered if left to MSM but.....

I am finding the "stars" of the Alt world have themselves become repetitive, whiny, and they often push a "narrative" themselves.. albeit a different narrative from the old MSM. They are also prone to "Fake News" themselves!! :eek
Ridiculous conspiracy theories (eg secret indictments and ankle monitor boots LOL). They convince themselves, and their feeble-minded fan-base followers, that all manner of "secret stuff" is underway... when the actual facts point to nothing of the sort.

I get that the Alt media initially made a point of exposing MSM biases, and promoting themselves as an alternative, but that has become TEDIOUS... I think most people get that point, and yet the alt media still spend a lot of time bemoaning the deficiencies of MSM.. rather than simply getting on with the job of presenting the alternative and letting it stand (or fall) in comparison to MSM

Also the Alt sites seem to have grown complacent as far as presenting an alternative goes. Rather than a regular "service" which could be regarded as an alternative to daily newspapers/broadcasts... the alt sites seem to update ony if and when they feel inspired... which often means days or even weeks of not presenting anything new. If they are to be the ALTERNATIVE to daily news that they claimed to aspire to be... then they need to get off their asses and do the regular work.. as well as the "Newsflash"/ Bombshell (easy) stuff.

#FakeNews

Whoever booked this Cyndi Lauper-looking clown, so-called-Astrologist on the Fox News NYE show at Times Square, should be fired, before Midnight! Good gosh. :84
And Kennedy should get a raise for handling her well, with Kennedy's improvised responses.

Conservatives Reality Check Day - Jan 15, 2018

Lets make Jan 15th the day brain-washed conservatives WAKE UP!!

NOTHING much will happen the day the OIG supplies 1.2 M documents to Senate Judiciary Committee... NOTHING
Even after Senators have done reading, reviewing... NOTHING will have been achieved.... there may be calls for more hearings.. but that's about it. Still no criminal investigation until the AG decides to START one.

An (Obama) OIG "Review" of DOJ/FBI does NOT preclude CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS taking place at the same time. That would be silly. The fact that "waiting for the OIG report" is cited as reason to not start other (criminal) investigations is just an excuse used by those complicit/ in CYA mode, who don't want to even start a criminal investigation of anybody (other than Trump/Trump team)
This review was STARTED in January 2017 and so will have run a year by Jan 15, 2018. The actual "Report" is actually still even more months beyond that.

Obviously LEAKS from the OIG review have indicated behavior "troubling" enough to warrant staff reassignments and so on that basis should have at least been reason enough to consider further action.. a criminal investigation. In fact, if the OIG could find such troubling information, it beggars belief that, independent of an OIG inquiry, normal DOJ/FBI investigations did not find the "bad behavior" and initiate Investigations (criminal) themselves.

It seems to me that the "log Jam" is Jeff Sessions!!

It is his JOB as AG to initiate investigations... to direct the FBI to investigate. His EXCUSE of recusal is a nonsense. Even if there is (perhaps) an APPEARANCE of conflict of interest, a recusal is NOT simply an abrogation of all responsibility, it is meant to be a HANDING OVER of responsibility to another person... equally competent but FREE of the appearance of conflicts. Rosenstein DOES NOT MEET THAT REQUIREMENT.. and so Sessions was NOT free to simply stick his head in the sand and hand over to Rosenstein. If Sessions truly thought he was compromised... then he should have perhaps RESIGNED as AG or at the least appointed a Deputy who truely was above reproach, and an honest and competent person to oversee all matters Russia/election/ related.. including matters to do with Hillary.. and NOT restricted to just Trump.
Lots of luck finding an honest/ethical person in Washington... but it certainly WAS NOT Rosenstein, and so if all else failed, Sessions SHOULD NOT have recused. He was clearly already himself a less corrupt option to Rosenstein....... or is he?

As I have said before.... it is increasingly hard to accept that Sessions is just a silly, naive, sleepy old fart.. who is unaware of what his recusal caused, and is continuing to cause. He could be part of the corruption.. and as such needs to himself be investigated/indicted.

Wake Up





BEWARE The Ides of January! :cool



The Evidence is real, the Indictments are Fake...

Ahead of January 15 is the Jan 3 "Son of Big Ugly"

Nunes (to his credit) has delivered an ultimatum to the Crooks in DOJ/FBI who are blocking proper Congressional oversight.

My GUESS....
The crooks will not supply documents requested.. they may supply something, but not what we all know is at issue. The clear evidence that the "Trump Dossier" was used (and paid for by FBI) to obtain FISA warrants.
I dont think anybody will be held in contempt.. but they should be.... Wray, Rosenstein have been named... and I'd throw in Sessions for sure... he remains AG and as such the "Buck stops with him".
Recusal my ass!!
Sessions is AG and can facilitate the compliance with Congress requests for documents... even if they cover matters he has his head up his ass over.


The Evidence is real, the Indictments are Fake...

Son of Big Ugly :lol

ALL your posts I am just now reading through are amazing!

The Alt Gang
Wake Up
(the one above)

OMGosh ... so true.

To be honest, I have quit reading at the Alt Gang places because they confuse me. The FBI paid for the fake Dossier but who supplied the money? The Clinton Foundation ... or

there are speculations of it coming from campaign funds to who knows what.

I'm going to take it one day at a time (at least try to), see what transpires from the upcoming releases/testimony/leaks :roll and read YOUR take instead of what is out there going in circles (including Twitter).

The recent "Session memes" ... hilarious! ;)
