Lyin’ McCabe

Even after he was fired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, former acting Director Andrew McCabe can’t seem to get his story straight. McCabe has long been a center of controversy. From allegations that the FBI used the uncorroborated Trump dossier to secure a spy warrant against Trump campaign official Carter Page to a potential conflict of interest in his role in the Hillary Clinton probe, McCabe has become the poster child for all this is wrong at the Department of Justice for Republicans and the Trump White House. The stench that this man, along with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page and Agent Peter Strzok, thought they were above the law, self-appointed defenders against the Trump presidency.

The conflict of interest with McCabe and the Clinton probe stemmed from his wife’s, Jill, Virginia State Senate campaign in 20; top Clinton ally and then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe dumped some serious into that campaign. Jill lost. Strzok and Page had an extramarital affair that included tens of thousands of texts, where the two exchanged anti-Trump messages during some of the most sensitive investigation the bureau had overseen in years: The Clinton email probe, in which they worried if the bureau was going too hard on the former first lady, and the counterintelligence investigation into Russian collusion; an investigation that’s now headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

When Mueller knew these texts, he removed Strzok from the investigation. Strzok went from top counterintelligence agent to working human resources before being fired for the anti-Trump texts that include cryptic messages to Page, speaking about an “insurance policy” for a Trump presidency to outright saying they would stop it somehow. The insurance policy text was mentioned during a meeting with then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. Strzok tried to say that the texts show his patriotism, while Page, his mistress, said they meant exactly what they mean. Yeah, this whole affair reeked of deep state antics. And now, we have McCabe chirping about meetings within the DOJ that centered on invoking the 25thAmendment to boot Trump. Oh yes, people want to know more about this because this is just insane and possibly illegal. Judicial Watch already filed a lawsuit to force the DOJ to release all documents relating to using the 25thAmendment to execute what could only be described as a coup d’état.

McCabe was interviewed by 60 Minutes on Sunday, where he said vote counting was discussed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein regarding invoking the 25thAmendment within the Trump cabinet.

Scott Pelley: How did he bring up the idea of the 25th amendment to you?

Andrew McCabe: Honestly, I don't remember. He, it was just another kinda topic that he jumped to in the midst of a wide-ranging conversation.

Scott Pelley: Seriously? (LAUGH) Just—

Andrew McCabe: Yeah—

Scott Pelley: —another topic

Andrew McCabe: Yeah.

Scott Pelley: Did you counsel him on that?

Andrew McCabe: I didn't. I mean, he was discussing other cabinet members and whether or not people would support such an idea, whether or not other cabinet members would, shared, his belief that the president was — was really concerning, was concerning Rod at that time.

Scott Pelley: Rosenstein was actually openly talking about whether there was a majority of the cabinet who would vote to remove the president.

Andrew McCabe: That's correct. Counting votes or possible votes.

Scott Pelley: Did he assign specific votes to specific people?

Andrew McCabe: No, not that I recall.

Scott Pelley: As you're sitting in this meeting in the Justice Department, talking about removing the president of the United States, you were thinking what?

Andrew McCabe: How did I get here? Confronting these confounding legal issues of such immense importance, not just to the FBI but to the entire country, it was— it was disorienting.

So, we probably should prepare for another round of DOJ-bashing, which they’ve earned. On the Left, the DOJ/FBI has lost credibility ever since also-fired FBI Director James Comey informed Congress days before Election Day that they had new Clinton-related emails and that the bureau would be reviewing them. Democrats think this is what Clinton the election. It didn’t, but the sour feelings remain even with two-time presidential loser, Hillary Clinton. On the Right, the FBI’s refusal to prosecute Clinton over mishandling classified and sensitive information that was passed through her unsecured and unauthorized in-house email server while she was secretary of state. And now, coup talks because Trump won the election? It’s time to clean house. And no, the coup aspect isn’t overblown; even liberal Alan Dershowitz said you couldn’t spin what top DOJ officials tried to do here.

"If [McCabe’s comments are] true, it is clearly an attempt at a coup d’état," Dershowitz said.

"Any Justice Department official who even mentioned the 25th amendment in the context of President Trump has committed a grievous offense against the Constitution…The framers had in mind something very specific, and trying to use the 25th amendment to circumvent impeachment provisions or to circumvent an election is a despicable act of unconstitutional power-grabbing."

Not even Lyin’ McCabe can spin this.

The Real Problem for All You Anti-Trumpers

Here is the problem for Trump critics. They began with the wrong premise. They believed that Hillary Clinton should have won the 2016 presidential election. Then they deluded themselves by embracing the notion that Donald Trump was illegitimate, unstable, stupid, and an offense to everything they consider normal.

This led the Obama holdovers in the Justice Department and the major media to construct a Russian collusion scenario, based on evidence they had to know is false.

These included Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI, who was fired for lying to government investigators. In his new book and in a recent “60 Minutes” interview, McCabe admits he was part of a coup attempt to remove Trump from office, using the 25th Amendment as the means.

McCabe said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was not joking, as Rosenstein claims he was, about wearing a wire, hoping the president would say outrageous things Rosenstein could take to the vice president and the Cabinet to convince them that Trump was unfit to hold public office.

There’s your real collusion and also a conspiracy to oust a duly elected president.
On his radio program last Thursday, Rush Limbaugh said he thinks the entire Russian collusion investigation is a waste of taxpayer money and has come to nothing. About McCabe, he said: “He is bragging about his efforts to undermine and overthrow Trump. He’s admitting, essentially, that he and his buddies put in motion a silent coup to get rid of Donald Trump. He admits that the talk of wiring Rosenstein to entrap Trump in an Oval Office conversation was real.

At the same time, various leaks and reports, even from NBC News, which has been among the numerous media outlets promoting collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, are beginning to back off.

On the NBC News website there is this headline: “You may be disappointed by the Mueller Report.” That seems to suggest the special counsel has found nothing to prove collusion and the “disappointed” will be those who believed he would.

The anti-Trumpers need not worry, though. Having failed to prove collusion, the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives and attorneys in the Southern District of New York will keep investigating the Trump organization in an attempt to find anything that might sour his re-election prospects, or lead to his impeachment, as unlikely as that seems.

What is needed is a special counsel to investigate numerous allegations of wrongdoing not only by McCabe, but the rest of the cast of characters from Clinton and her “missing” emails and foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation, to those Obama holdovers who conspired to overturn election results.

The next step for Trump haters will be an effort to thwart his national emergency declaration in order to finish building his promised border wall.

“According to the Federal Register, 58 national emergencies have been declared since the National Emergency Act of 1976 was signed into law by President Gerald Ford,” writes ABC News, though many of those froze funds rather than appropriated new ones. Thirty-one are still in effect.

President Barack Obama declared 10 national emergencies, including actions blocking property of certain persons contributing to the conflict in Somalia, in respect to threats posed by Somali pirates; blocking property of certain persons contributing to the situation in Burundi after a failed coup; and blocking property and suspending entry of certain persons contributing to the situation in Venezuela in response to human rights violations.

Axios, a conservative news and information website, quotes an outline it received from the White House that says the president plans to “ … unlock access to up to $8.08 billion dollars for physical barriers, including the funding dedicated in the [Department of Homeland Security] appropriations bill.”

The funding will “ … come from Treasury Forfeiture Funds” and other sources, which might include billions seized from drug cartel leader “El Chapo” and the Defense Department’s military construction projects.

It’s an interesting premise. The courts will likely decide whether it is constitutional.

25th Amendment Would've Been 'Serious Movement Toward Coup'
Posted:Feb 19, 2019 5:55 am
Last Updated:Feb 20, 2019 11:30 am

Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Monday on America's Newsroom that he believes Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein were searching for a way to remove President Trump from office.

McCabe, former deputy director of the FBI, told CBS News' "60 Minutes" that Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein was "absolutely serious" about recording Trump following the firing of James Comey.

According to a bombshell New York Times report last year, Rosenstein suggested recording the president to expose his motive for the firing.

McCabe also confirmed in his interview over the weekend that he ordered an obstruction of justice probe against the president.

"This is a serious issue. I think McCabe and Rod Rosenstein really believed that the president had obstructed justice," Dershowitz said. "They were looking for a way -- short of impeachment -- to remove him from office."

Dershowitz said that there ought to be hearings for both men before Congress about how serious the discussions were to invoke the 25th Amendment.

"Any law enforcement official who thinks that the 25th Amendment operates in a case like this is disqualified from serving in government," he said. "That would be a serious movement toward an unconstitutional coup d'etat, and I hope that didn't happen."

The 25th Amendment of the Constitution provides the means to replace a sitting president if he dies or is incapacitated. Dershowitz emphasized it would not have applied in the situation that McCabe and Rosenstein are alleged to have discussed it.
Andrew McCabe should be in jail not on a book tour

Andrew McCabe lied multiple times to federal investigators.

That was the official finding in February 2018 of a scathing 39-page report by the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General. They found McCabe, then Deputy Director of Federal Bureau of Investigations (FB "lacked candor" in answering questions about his authorization of disclosures in the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The referral for further action went to the DOJ.
One year later he is publishing a book, being highlighted on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” and walking free after lying at least four times, three of them under oath, to federal authorities investigating his conduct. Trading on the notoriety he gained from his partisan loyalty, he will now have the opportunity to monetize the duplicity that shielded Hillary Clinton from justice.

For a time, McCabe was the acting director of the FBI. He of all people knew the rules, the law, and had a duty and responsiblity to tell the truth. And yet his own colleagues found he lied. In fact, he accomplished something federal employees rarely accomplish - he was ultimately fired for his offenses.

Now he’s on a book tour. He should be under prosecution.
Democrats Rip Into Ocasio-Cortez

With Amazon nixing a plan to build a headquarters in New York City, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) celebrated a victory for white voters in her district. Yes, people of color wanted Amazon to come to the Big Apple. It would have created 25,000 at a minimum salary of $150,000. Yeah, real slave labor, but progressives just had to fight corporate America, which they do daily…on their Apple devices.

A lot of Democrats were not too happy with Ocasio-Cortez’s celebrations, aptly noting that cheering job destruction is just straight-up idiocy. But hey, we’re talking about a woman, who thinks cow farts are a problem. A congresswoman who wants to move away from fossil fuels in a decade and upgrade every building in the country to make them energy efficient. It’s insanity. It’s not serious. And some within the media, like MSNBC whose sole purpose is to keep liberal blood pressures low, even admits that AOC’s economic illiteracy is going to give Trump a second term (via Free Beacon):

Representative Carolyn Maloney, who has been representing the 12th Congressional District since 2013, appeared on CNN's "OutFront" to discuss Amazon's decision to cancel its plan to build a headquarters in Long Island City, Queens, which is part of her district. Host Erin Burnett read Ocasio-Cortez's tweet celebrating the decision and asked if she shared her sentiment.

"My constituents want jobs," Maloney said.

"This was 25,000 jobs," said Burnett, prompting Maloney to say this was a "minimum" amount of jobs.

"It would have been many, many more; 25,00 jobs at $150,000 minimum for the job," Maloney said. "There were promises for a new school, and as a former teacher, I was intrigued with their plans to have a curriculum in 30 different schools supported by Amazon on high tech. We should be really diversifying our base of taxes, our base of businesses. We are too dependent on financial services."

"It used to be that we would protest wars. Now we are protesting jobs? People are complaining about jobs coming to your [city] … If this had gone through, it would have made overnight New York City the high-tech capital of the east coast, the most important job center for tech jobs."

Also, AOC somehow thinks Amazon has “dehumanizing” working condition. Well, they just invited her to tour their facilities.

Amazon has fired back against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s claims about the company’s poor working conditions, inviting the firebrand congresswoman to tour the facilities and see it “for yourself.”

Amazon’s David Clark, senior vice president of worldwide operations, made the invitation on Twitter after Ocasio-Cortez accused the e-commerce giant of creating “dehumanizing conditions” for its employees.

But Clark shot back, claiming that such allegations “aren’t true” and invited the congresswoman to the visit the company to get a sense how the employees are treated.

“Senior FriendFinder these claims simply aren’t true. We are proud of our jobs with excellent pay ($15 min), benefits from day 1, & lots of other benefits like our Career Choice pre-paid educational programs. Why don’t you come take a tour & see for yourself...we’d love to have you!,” he tweeted.

Listen, AOC is just being a good socialist. Ensuring that people don’t have job opportunities because then we can all suffer equally. I think it’s called the Venezuelan model.

Dems Now Learning the Downside of Ocasio-Cortez'
Posted:Feb 16, 2019 4:25 pm
Last Updated:Feb 18, 2019 7:18 pm

In his latest "My Take" commentary for Fox Nation, Stuart Varney said Democrats are "learning the downside of A.O.C." after Amazon announced it would not move to Long Island City, N.Y. as planned.

“Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

The freshman Democrat – along with other lawmakers – had strongly criticized the planned opening of Amazon’s second headquarters in New York.

Varney said the "Big Apple" is turning into "a big socialist mess."

He ripped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who represents the adjacent neighborhood of Astoria, Queens, for claiming Amazon was "exploiting workers."

Varney said Amazon was offering jobs that paid around $150,000 per year, which he stated was far from an exploitation.

"Democrats are now learning the downside of A.O.C. (sic)," he said, adding that the lawmaker and her similar-minded colleagues "hate capitalism [and] wealth.

Varney said New York State is "desperate" for tax revenue after President Trump's tax law lessened the amount of state income tax that citizens of high-tax states can write off to the federal government.

"People and money are fleeing the state," he said.

"When you make a star of socialism, you and America lose," Varney added.
Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest oath.

And yet, America owes him a big thank-you.

McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 20.

There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department played in spying on the Trump campaign and leaks of classified information for partisan purposes.

In short, what is arguably the greatest scandal in the history of America remains mostly hidden from the public. That shroud of secrecy piles one scandal on top of another.

Fortunately, the McCabe reminder is a timely one, coming on the same day that William Barr was confirmed as the new attorney general. Barr is just the man to get to the bottom of the unprecedented plot to swing an election and later to remove a duly-elected president.

Barr, who was AG the first President Bush, also will oversee special counsel Robert Mueller’s seemingly endless probe and, hopefully, bring it to a conclusion.

McCabe is talking because he’s peddling a book and, just as Comey the Snake before him, is aiming his sales pitch anti-Trumpers. He used an interview with CBS to offer more details of a discussion within the FBI and Justice Department to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

McCabe said that the effort took shape immediately after Trump fired Comey in May 20 and that numerous people were involved, including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

McCabe’s version of events dovetails with a New York Times report last September that Rosenstein met with McCabe and others and offered to wear a wire in meetings with Trump to get incriminating information, a hint that McCabe was the prime source for that story.

Rosenstein, through an aide, denied the account Thursday, just as he did last September.

But his repeated insistence that McCabe’s tale is “inaccurate and factually incorrect” remains unpersuasive and is undercut by the fact that, a week after the meeting in question, Rosenstein appointed Mueller. Because parts of the memo authorizing that appointment remain classified, America doesn’t know the full reason why Rosenstein thought a special counsel was warranted.

Yet the Mueller probe, with its ancillary indictments of Trump associates and others, has created an unfair cloud of uncertainty over the administration and fueled Democrats’ impeachment fantasies. Even now, they are using Russia, Russia, Russia as an excuse to put Trump’s family and his entire life and business under scrutiny.

When is enough enough? When will the Trump haters take no for an answer?

Meanwhile, we do know that Comey and his dirty crew used the unverified Christopher Steele dossier, which was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, to get a secret court warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. And FBI messages, along with congressional testimony, confirm that the same agents probing Trump were simultaneously involved in the Clinton e- investigation and decided to go easy on her because they thought she would be their next boss.

Recall that Peter Strzok, the top agent in both cases, called the Trump probe an “insurance policy” in the event he won.

Barr testified that he was “shocked” when he saw such blatant evidence of bias against Trump, and promised to investigate the investigators.

He can begin by getting to the bottom of the conflicting roles Rosenstein played. In charge after his former boss, Jeff Sessions, recused himself, Rosenstein advocated that Trump fire Comey, then used the firing as a pretext for appointing Mueller. He also signed the final secret court application, thus giving a misleading endorsement of the Steele dossier.

Yet Rosenstein, a career prosecutor who is expected to resign now that Barr takes over, nonetheless developed a good relationship with the president, and it somehow endured the Times report last September of the 25th Amendment plot. And he was able to convince the president to withhold documents detailing why the FBI and Justice Department first focused on whether the Trump campaign had any improper relationship with Russia.

Barr, of course, will have a full plate of current issues and new initiatives of his own he wants to pursue. But if there is any hope that the FBI and Justice will regain the credibility they squandered, the new AG must rip off the shroud of secrecy hiding a dark episode in American history.

Anything less will only compound the crippling distrust many Americans already have for their government.

An Incredibly Elitist Proposal': Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal
Posted:Feb 14, 2019 5:41 pm
Last Updated:Feb 19, 2019 4:22 am

Melissa Francis said she doesn't mind seeing politicians "putting aside the niceties" and stating what they actually believe, but she does have serious problems with the substance of the Green New Deal.

The proposal aims to transform the U.S. economy in a bid to combat climate change, with a primary goal of having net-zero emissions within ten .

"It is an incredibly elitist proposal would be paid for on the backs of all working people," Francis said.

She explained rising energy costs hurt everyday people who are already struggling to fuel their vehicles and their utility bills.
"And when you stand there the beginning and you say these things are mathematically and physically impossible, and will cripple the economy and hurt people, you [are told you] hate the environment.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn said the deal would decimate Tennessee's working class and gave several examples.

"FedEx would no longer exist," she said, adding it is "one of the largest employers in the state."

Blackburn said , to effect, the technology "doesn't even exist" would allow for the end of the use of fossil fuels in a decade, as the plan would direct.

"Cattle farming would no longer exist," she added.

Blackburn said the key oil refinery in Memphis would be shuttered and those employed there would be laid off under the Green New Deal.
It was all fake There was no Russian collusion

I have news for you, breaking news, that for whatever reason is being downplayed or ignored by other media outlets, but we think you want to know about it. Five simple words describe it, there was no Russian collusion. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump campaign conspired in any way with the government of Vladimir Putin during the last presidential election.

That is apparently the conclusion of the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee. That Committee spent two years investigating this question. Of course, hundreds of interviews, reams of classified documents, untold millions in taxpayer dollars. No collusion at all. That is what we are hearing on Tuesday evening that they have found.

Now, if you've been following the story at all, and of course you have been, you will not be surprised by this. No Russian collusion is a lot like the moon landing actually happened or the abominable snowman was probably a long-haired mountain goat. You knew that already because you are not an idiot, but if so, compare your mental acuity to that of prominent political figures here in Washington.

The next time you feel dumb, remember what these Democrats said:

ADAM SCHIFF: U.S. REPRESENTATIVE, CALIFORNIA: I think there is plenty of evidence of collusion or conspiracy in plain sight.

MAXINE WATERS, U.S. REPRESENTATIVE, CALIFORNIA, DEMOCRAT: Trump has the Kremlin clan surrounding him. There is more to be learned about it. I believe there has been collusion.

JOHN PODESTA, FORMER WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF: It is starting to smell more and more like collusion.

NANCY PELOSI, SPEAKER, U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES: We saw cold, hard evidence of the Trump campaign and, indeed, the Trump family eagerly intending to collude, possibly with Russia.

"Smells like collusion."…"Plenty of evidence of collusion." “Hard evidence of collusion.”

In the end, it was all fake. And they knew that, they knew it wasn't real. They were lying from the very first day. Only their remarkable aggression, their willingness to say literally anything no matter how outrageous or slanderous or vile, kept the rest of us from catching on to what they were doing.

If the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is willing to call someone a traitor to this country, there’s gotta be some truth to it, right?

Actually, no, there wasn't. It was always a hoax.

Adam Schiff is an unscrupulous charlatan -- that is the real lesson here. Don't expect people like Schiff to apologize though or correct the record, much less repair the lives of the people they have destroyed.

Carter Page still can't find a job. Roger Stone is still facing life in prison. Meanwhile, Schiff's PR team on the other channel continues like none of this ever happened.

Here is Malcolm Nance of MSNBC explaining the results of a two-year Senate investigation mean nothing. People are guilty because we say they are guilty, we must punish them.

“Let me just say one thing. When Benedict Arnold gave the plans to West Point to Major Andre and they captured Major Andre, they do not have any real information linking those plans to Benedict Arnold, other than the fact that it was in his presence at one point during that day. But everyone knew it was treason when they caught the man, and they hung him. So at some point, there is going to be a bridge of data here that is going to be unassailable.”

“No one had any evidence, but everyone knew it was treason when they caught the man and they hung him.”

That says it all. Let's repeat that, once again, slowly so you can write down those words and put them on your fridge as a memento of the terrifying mass hysteria we have all just lived through: "Everyone knew it was treason when they caught the man, and they hung him."

That is our country now. That is what the Russia insanity has done to us, the real government shutdown has lasted for nearly two and a half years. That's one percent of this country's entire existence. We no longer have meaningful policy dates in Washington, we have investigations, instead. Nobody can think clearly, everybody is afraid.

The country's core problems don't even rate as interesting anymore, either to legislators or to TV pundits who comment on legislators. The suicide rate just hit a 50-year high, did you know that? We are in the middle of the worst drug epidemic in the history of America, including the one after the Civil War and the heroin epidemic of the '70s and the crack epidemic of the '80s, this is way worse, and it's one of the reasons the life expectancy, in many parts of the country, is dropping.

This is starting to look like Boris Yeltsin's Russia, and yet nobody in Washington even notices. All Adam Schiff and the rest of the wild-eyed morons can think about is "Vladimir Putin," "collusion," "our hacked democracy" and all the other mindless slogans they have repeated long enough to half believe.

We've spent two years perpetuating a fraud, and they are still doing it. What is this? It is negligence on a stunning scale. It has nothing to do with Trump, it has everything to do with running this country, and they are not.

Historians will look back on this moment in amazement and in sadness -- who put these crock-pots in charge and let them break things? Why didn't any responsible person in the media say anything about it? Why did they collude in the charade? What the hell happened to America?

History will judge us for this moment. Adam Schiff's grandkids will be ashamed of what he did.

Willie Brown Throws Truth At Ex-Girlfriend Kamala Harris: Can’t Beat Trump
Posted:Feb 12, 2019 2:55 pm
Last Updated:Feb 14, 2019 6:37 am

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown threw the truth at his ex-girlfriend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and the other contenders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, writing Saturday that none of them can beat President Donald Trump.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote:

Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.

[T]he overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.

You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.
