Ohhh…, hello FISA court!  Where ya’ been?

According to Fox News, “FISA court slams FBI over surveillance applications, in rare public order.”

Ohhhh my gosh!  The FISA court “slammed” the FBI soooo hard.

I don’t know if they’ll ever recover!

afisa 11

“In a rare public order Tuesday, the chief judge [Who is the Chief FISA Judge by the way…, and why are these people never identified? I’ll identify these individuals a little later in the article.] of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court [FISA court] strongly criticized the FBI over its surveillance-application process, giving the bureau until Jan. 10 to come up with solutions, in the wake of findings from Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz.”

Ohhh…, the FISA Court “strongly criticized” the FBI?

What exactly makes “strong criticism” different from normal criticism?

Do they shake a finger at you while criticizing you?

Do they raise their voices while criticizing you?

Ya…, when I get a speeding ticket or I accidentally blow through a stop sign, that’s what the judge usually asks me…, “What solutions are you going to come up with to make sure this doesn’t happen again?”

afisa 9

“What is the future of the FBI following the revealing IG report on FISA applications?”

afisa 5

What is the future of the FISA Court for that matter?

afisa 7

afisa 8

afisa 6

And why has it taken so long for the FISA Court to address this whole matter of the FBI breaking the law (on numerous occasions) regarding the FISA process?

Especially considering that Congressman Devin Nunes sent two official letters to the FISA COURT, beginning over a year ago, alerting them to these exact circumstances!

afisa 3

It would be my contention that the FISA Court cannot be that blind or that stupid…, which means they must have been a willing part of the deep state’s coup attempt!

And the reason they’ve now, finally, decided to open their mouths is because they were literally forced to, based on the evidence we now have.

afisa 4

So who are these FISA Court pillars of justice?:

Rosemary M. Collyer, District of Columbia /D.C. Presiding Chief Judge: May 19, 2016-Dec. 31, 2019

afisa 2

James E. Boasberg, District of Columbia / D.C. Presiding Chief Judge: effective Jan. 1, 2020

Rudolph Contreras, District of Columbia / D.C.

Anne C. Conway, Middle District of Florida

Louis Guirola, Jr., Southern District of Mississippi

James P. Jones, Western District of Virginia

Robert B. Kugler, District of New Jersey

Michael W. Mosman, District of Oregon

Thomas B. Russell, Western District of Kentucky

George Z. Singal, District of Maine

John J. Tharp, Jr., Northern District of Illinois

 

Judges Collyer, Boasberg and Contreras, are the ones who I especially would like to hear from.

Perhaps John Durham, the Justice Department’s “investigator of the investigators” will eventually hold these co-conspirators’ feet to the fire.

We’ll see.

Only if there is any justice left in our world.

President Trump’s accomplishments…, America’s best kept secrets!

If you haven’t tuned into FOX for the news from time to time, or watched/listened to a Trump rally…, you may not be aware of any or many of President Trump’s accomplishments for our country.

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is not prone to give President Trump credit for accomplishing anything, or airing anything that might be construed as positive in nature.

In case you haven’t heard…, President Trump’s list of accomplishments, so far, is long and historic in nature.

Here we go!

aacomms 5

7 million new jobs have been created since President Trump was elected.

An all-time record of more than 158.5 million Americans are employed.

There are 10,000 more factories in America today than on Election Day in 2016.

The unemployment rate for Americans without a high school diploma is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

The unemployment rate for disabled Americans is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

The youth unemployment rate has reached the lowest rate in nearly 50 years.

Hispanic-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

African-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

Asian-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

Women’s unemployment is at the lowest rate in over 65 years.

Income per household has increased $5,205 since 2017 and is still growing.

Average wages have been on the rise for the first time in over 20 years and are still on the rise.

The U.S. is now the largest producer of oil and natural gas, surpassing Saudi Arabia and Russia. We are a net exporter of energy for the first time since 1957.

Established 8,764 “Opportunity Zones” to promote new jobs in low-income communities.

Poverty rates for African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans have reached new all-time lows.

aacomms 2

In addition to all of these historically accomplishments, the President has:

Donated all of his quarterly salaries to different departments within our government,

Seen all-time highs in the stock markets on his watch,

Lowered personal and corporate tax rates,

Seen over 7 million people come off the food stamp program,

Signed the “Right to Fire” VA bill, which has seen 500 incompetent employees fired, 200 suspended, and 33 demoted,

Signed the VA “Choice” law, which allows veterans access to private medical care if their VA care is unresponsive or inadequate,

Renegotiated unfair trade deals with China, Canada, Mexico, Japan and South Korea,

Rebuilt our military,

Established the creation of the U.S. Space force, a new sixth military branch of the armed forces,

Signed the Criminal Justice reform Bill, which reforms the system by reforming sentencing for a wide range of first-time misdemeanors or by eliminating incarceration time. It also got rid of mandatory minimum sentences for felony drug offenses.

Signed the “Right to Try” law giving critically ill patients access to potentially life-saving cures,

Been the first U.S. President to meet with a leader of North Korea, and the first President to actually step foot in North Korea.

Removed thousands upon thousands of business and progress strangling federal regulations.

And I’m sure there more that I failed to mention.

Perhaps the most underappreciated and under-reported accomplishment is the end of our dependence on Middle Eastern oil.  This is a game changer regarding national security, our economy, and our foreign policy capabilities.

Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

aacomms 6

My point is…, there has been no other president in our nation’s history who can produce a list of accomplishments (in only his first three years no less) that even comes close to that of President Trump.

Promises made…, promises kept…, PLUS!

WINNING!

For “The Deep State,” an apology seems to be a “get out of jail free card!” 

Yes…, for “The Deep State,” democrats and liberals in general, a disingenuous apology seems to be a “get out of jail free card!”

adoj 1

At least in their eyes, the eyes of their “Deep State” comrades, and the eyes of their propagandistic fake news media conspirators.

An apology, of course, is only begrudgingly performed when the evidence against the “swamp rat” in question is SO overwhelming that the preferred strategy of lying, denying and pleading ignorance cannot be employed.

Republicans, conservatives, and all the rest of the law-abiding peons, however, are expected to operate under the laws as they were written, and receive punishment accordingly.

adoj 2

Case in point…, an article by Ronn Blitzer of Fox News, titled, “DOJ recommends maximum sentence for former GOP Representative.”

You will NEVER see or hear the words “DOJ recommends maximum sentence” before any liberal bureaucrat’s name or any liberal politician’s name.

In this case, ‘“The Government believes that a sentence at the top end of the Guidelines range is necessary in order to satisfy the objectives of Title 18 United States Code, Section 3553(a), and in particular to promote respect for the law, to provide just punishment for the offense, and to achieve general deterrence,’ prosecutors with the Southern District of New York said in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Vernon S. Broderick.”

So in other words, they’re saying that there are cases where you don’t need to “promote respect for the law,” “provide just punishment,” and “achieve general deterrence?”

It seems like that’s what they’re saying.

adoj 8

And in fact, we’ve seen many cases where our “justice” system IS NOT promoting respect for the law, IS NOT providing just punishment, and IS NOT achieving general deterrence…, especially where liberal bureaucrats and liberal politicians are concerned.

Do the names Lois Lerner, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, James Clapper, John Brennan, Andrew McCabe, and James Comey ring a bell?

adoj 7

adoj 9

adoj 6

Another such case is the case of Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, a former top Treasury Department official.

When someone is using three last names, that’s a good tip-off that we are dealing with someone who is extra pathetically liberal.

adoj 5

According to Gregg Re of Fox News, “A former top Treasury Department official pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy for leaking confidential banking reports associated with members of the Trump campaign, following her dramatic arrest in October 2018 as she toted a flash drive full of sensitive documents.”

“Natalie Edwards, 41, entered the plea in Manhattan federal court, where U.S. District Judge Gregory H. Woods set sentencing for June 9. Although the conspiracy charge carried a potential penalty of up to five years in prison, Edwards signed a plea deal with prosecutors that recommended a potential prison sentence of zero to six months.”

A plea deal you say?

What exactly is she pleaing?

She doesn’t seem to have much leverage here.

She must be pleaing that her special liberal privilege be recognized.

“Edwards was a senior adviser at Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, also known as FinCEN. Prosecutors said her crime began in October 2017 and continued for a year, with Edwards sending a BuzzFeed News reporter numerous Suspicious Activity Reports (“SARs”).

Oh…, she was a senior adviser at Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network!

Beautiful!

She should be held to an even higher standard here then.

“As law enforcement swooped in, she was carrying a government-issued USB flash drive containing not only thousands of SARs, but also ‘highly sensitive material relating to Russia, Iran, and the terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,’ prosecutors said.”

Am I just stupid or does this seem like a pretty serious crime?

‘“I am sorry for what I have done and I apologize to you, your honor, and the court,’ Edwards said.”

THERE IT IS!

She played her “get out of jail free card” apology!

Also notice she’s apologizing to the judge and the court and not to the victims of her crime, her department, or the American people.

“Her arrest came on the heels of other high-profile, leak-related prosecutions under the Trump administration, which had pledged to go on the offensive against leakers whom the president has called ‘traitors and cowards.’”

Exactly, Mr. President.  I would classify her as a coward and a traitor as well.

Traitors should not receive bogus plea deals.

In another case, we have the F.B.I. (Director, Christopher Wray) apologizing to the Court for “botching surveillance of a Trump adviser,” and “pledging to fix their [the F.B.I.’s] procedures.”

According to Charlie Savage of The New York Times, “The F.B.I. acknowledged serious errors and omissions in the facts it put forward for wiretap applications targeting a former Trump campaign adviser.”

“[The] F.B.I. told a secretive court on Friday that it was increasing training and oversight for officials who work on national security wiretap applications in response to problems uncovered by a scathing inspector general report last month about botched surveillance targeting a former Trump campaign adviser.”

“A secretive court?”

What exactly is a “secretive court?”

I’m guessing “secretive” means “rigged” in this instance.

‘“The F.B.I. has the utmost respect for this court and deeply regrets the errors and omission identified by’ the inspector general, wrote the F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, in a statement included with the filing. He called the conduct described by the report “unacceptable and unrepresentative of the F.B.I. as an institution.’”

Senate FBI Director

I’m sure you are very appreciative of this liberal leaning court, rigged in your favor, Mr. Wray…, and Oh…, THERE IT IS…, he played their “get out of jail free card” apology!

Excuse me Mr. Wray…, but you are so full of sh#t I can smell you a million miles away.

Believe me my friends…, these “Deep Staters” have no respect for their employer, the American people, and they think we are all idiots who will continue to keep falling for this crap.

Well…, it’s a new day Mr. Wray.

Our eyes are wide open now, and we recognize you people for what you are…, enemies of our country, and enemies of “We The People.”

“Under FISA — a law for surveillance aimed at monitoring suspected spies and terrorists, as opposed to ordinary criminals — the government must convince a judge that an American is probably an agent of a foreign power. Because the FISA court hears only from the government, and what it says is never shown to defense lawyers, the Justice Department says it has a duty to be candid and tell judges every relevant fact in its possession.”

Oh, sure, why wouldn’t we believe that would happen?!

“But the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, uncovered that the F.B.I. had cherry-picked and misstated evidence about the Trump adviser, Carter Page, when seeking permission to wiretap him in October 2016 and in 2017 renewal applications.”

In all there were 17 “serious errors and omissions in the facts” regarding the FISA warrant applications.

17!!!

That, Mr. Wray, raises the bar here from extreme incompetence to a treasonous disregard and manipulation of the law.

We are all painfully aware of our two-tiered justice system…, us being on the lower tier.

Apologies are not going to suffice here.

Our last hope of seeing any justice served, at least for a while, is U.S. Attorney John Durham and his investigation into all of this FISA stuff.

His report should be submitted to Attorney General Barr before this summer.., hopefully along with his recommendation of criminal charges for more than a few of these treasonous individuals.

I’ll be very disappointed if we just continue to see more of the same…, more apologies and more “get out of jail free cards.”

I’ll keep you posted.

President Trump is toooo funny, and right on point…, again!

Ronn Blitzer of Fox News reported that, “President Trump retweeted a ‘photo-shopped’ image depicting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in Muslim headwear with a backdrop of the Iranian flag, in the midst of a Monday morning Twitter spree where he shared a number of posts accusing Democratic leadership of supporting the Iranian government.”

ademsiran 2

I don’t really think President Trump’s tweets should be characterized as “accusations,” but rather as restatements of actual events.

“The president’s political opponents have blasted him for ordering the drone strike against Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who has been linked to numerous attacks on American forces and more. Meanwhile, they largely have remained silent as the Iranian people have staged massive protests against their leaders, in the wake of the government shooting down a passenger plane and initially denying it.”

‘“The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue,’ said the original tweet from user @D0wn_Under.”

ademsiran 1

“Trump later summed up his views on the matter, stating, ‘The Democrats and the Fake News are trying to make terrorist Soleimani into a wonderful guy, only because I did what should have been done for 20 years.’”

“You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members. You’re not hearing China. You’re not hearing Russia,” Former US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley said.

“The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates.”

EXACTLY!

How true and how pathetic.

Well…, you could add the fake news media and your usual collection of Hollywood elites to the mourning mix as well.

But, we, of course, are forced to endure our dose of propagandistic mis-information administered to counter the truth.  “This kind of statement is ridiculous, inflammatory and dangerous. Rather than inform viewers, Ambassador Haley wants to divide Americans,’ said former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile.

On the contrary, Ms. Brazile…, it is your statement which is “ridiculous” and divisive…, not ambassador Haley’s.

Tony Shaffer for the RealClear Politics website added, “As someone who went toe-to-toe with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in Afghanistan, I can assure you that Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani got exactly what he deserved when he perished in a U.S. drone strike. What he certainly doesn’t deserve is praise from Democrat lawmakers who would rather mourn a war criminal than credit President Trump for making the world safer.”

ademsiran 9

ademsiran 7

“As the leader of the IRGC’s Quds Force, [“Quds Force” is Iran’s unconventional arm that operates outside of the Iran’s borders] which has been designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. government, Soleimani was among America’s most vociferous and aggressive foes. He was personally responsible for the deaths of thousands, including the killing and maiming of hundreds of American soldiers. He was an evil, remorseless man, and his death is a positive development for the entire world — including his own country.”

“Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, however, is currently considering a resolution that labels the strike that killed Soleimani ‘provocative and disproportionate.’”

ademsiran 12

ademsiran 11

ademsiran 8

“Disproportionate?”

How many more American soldiers would have to die to make this a proportionate action in your eyes, Nancy?

Another fifty?

Another hundred?

“Predictably, the Democrats have been stoking fears about Iran’s potential response ever since they’ve learned about Soleimani’s death, pretending that the strike jeopardized U.S. security rather than enhanced it. It seems no liberal lawmaker is immune to the lure of political opportunism in the midst of a presidential election campaign.”

ademsiran 6

We’re not supposed to send a drone strike…, we’re supposed to send pallets of cash to those that regularly chant “death to America,” ala Obama and Biden, and hope for the best.  That’s the preferred democrat strategy for dealing with Iran.

ademsiran 10

“But while the Democrats join our enemies in mourning Soleimani’s demise, those with knowledge of Soleimani’s terror campaigns are celebrating the death of a genuine war criminal.”

“This man was a terrorist in charge of an IRGC element that had been declared a terrorist organization. He was traveling, in violation of U.N. sanctions, to Iraq, with the apparent intent of inflicting harm on U.S. service members in the region. He was in a combat zone as a combatant in uniform — the legal basis to target him could not have been clearer, and the same goes for the moral justification.”

“The Democrats are politicizing this issue the way they’ve politicized every other issue since President Trump took office. They don’t even seem to care that they have to take the side of America’s enemies in order to criticize Donald Trump.”

Well said…, but who is taking the side of whom exactly?

Hmmm?

CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo is a big-talking baby who can’t handle his booze, just like the real Fredo!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “CNN host Chris Cuomo doesn’t appreciate being nicknamed ‘Fredo,’ but has no problem labeling the president ‘Dirty Donald.’”

afredo 1

‘“Cuomo Prime Time’ on [a] Friday [last month] concluded with a segment in which the on-screen graphic referred to the president as ‘#DirtyDonald’ and the namesake host encouraged the moniker to trend on social media.”

Of course!  Isn’t that the liberal way?  Do unto others but don’t do unto me?

I’m not sure why I’m even bothering to comment on this, since I’ve never actually watched Cuomo’s show, nor has anyone else apparently.   It just seemed funny to me…, so here we go!

“Media Research Center analyst Ryan Foley wrote that the use of the nickname makes the CNN host ‘indistinguishable from a Democrat activist.’ The CNN host is the younger brother of Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York, and was caught on video threatening a man earlier this year who called him ‘Fredo.’”

“Political satirist Tim Young told Fox News that Cuomo’s newfound fondness of a nickname [for President Trump] is hypocritical.”

“President Trump has mocked CNN’s Chris Cuomo by comparing him to ‘Fredo’ from ‘The Godfather.’”

afredo 6

‘“Cuomo is now officially playing the game that we’ve seen the left play since Trump won the Republican nomination in 2016, where if a joke or joke nickname I made about them, they scream that it’s the end of world… but when they do it, it’s perfectly alright,’ Young said.”

afredo 7

‘“Fredo’ is a reference to Fredo Corleone, the weak and facile brother in the movie ‘The Godfather,’ who was played by John Cazale. The confrontation, which took place at a bar on New York’s Shelter Island, went viral when a man taunted him with the nickname.”

afredo 2

‘“I thought that was who you were,’ the man said.”

‘“No, punk-ass b—-es from the right call me “Fredo.” My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,’ a heated Cuomo responded. ‘“Fredo’ was from ‘The Godfather.’ He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur — are any of you Italian?… It’s a f—ing insult to your people. It’s an insult to your f—kin’ people. It’s like the N-word for us. Is that a cool f—ing thing?’”

afredo 9

No, Mr. Cuomo, it’s not an Italian slur…, it’s a personal slur directed directly at you. You’re the weak wuss of a younger brother just like Fredo.  Being Italian has nothing to do with it.

“After the man sarcastically told him, ‘You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television,’ Cuomo reacted, ‘If you want to play, we’ll f—ing play.’”

You tell ‘em Fredo!  Ooops…, I mean you tell ‘em Chris!

‘“If you’ve got something to say about what I do on television, then say it, but you don’t have to call me a f—in’ insult,’ Cuomo continued.”

afredo 4

Can I suggest you put your “big boy” pants on and chill, Chris?

‘“Hey man, listen, I don’t want any problems,’ the man, who appears to be holding the camera from below, told Cuomo.”

‘“Well, you’re gonna have a big f—in’ problem,’ Cuomo shot back.”

So hostile!

afredo 5

Just like on TV, you’re big on words, but obviously light on action.  All of the people in the bar were probably a bigger audience than you usually get as well.

“The video ended with multiple people attempting to separate the two men.”

Ha!  Ya…, I can see Cuomo now, acting like he didn’t want anyone holding him back!

“President Trump mocked the video, tweeting that he ‘thought Chris was Fredo also.’”

‘“The truth hurts,’ Trump tweeted. ‘Totally lost it!’”

Well…, you’re right again Mr. President!

What you talkin’ ‘bout Sleepy Joe?!

What you talkin’ ‘bout Mr. Excitement?!

What you talkin’ ‘bout Creepy Joe?!

What you talkin’ ‘bout #2 (Obama’s #2)?!

What you talkin’ ‘bout Quid Pro Quo Joe?!

Speaking to overflow “crowds” of 10 to 20 people, Joe Biden has continued to call President Trump’s Iran policy into question.

abiden 1

As if Joe Biden has a clue regarding any matter of foreign policy!

It’s a well-known fact in Washington that Joe Biden hasn’t shown ANY ability to properly understand and/or strategically react to any foreign policy situation over that last 40 years in an advantageous manner!

I’m sure Creepy Joe would prefer we fly a plane load of cash over to Tehran…, beg for their forgiveness, and hope for the best.

Oh wait…, Quid Pro Quo Joe and his “friend” Barack already tried that!

And as for Crazy Bernie, Lizzie the bag lady, and Pistol Pete…, I’m sure the Ayatollah and his friends have been having a good laugh at their expense.  They’ve also been praying to Allah that Americans are stupid enough to elect one of these “special” people!

However President Trump chooses to react to Iran’s latest missile attack, I’m sure his course of action will project American strength and resolve, and not American weakness and fear.

President Trump gives Iran the option of picking its own poison.

But let’s not forget that our reaction of taking out Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani was in response to the Iran instigated attack on our embassy in Iraq, along with a long list of other terrorist acts.

airan 8

Iran spends over a billion dollars a year promoting terrorism around the world while sponsoring groups such as Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Al-Qaida and the Taliban.

Iran was the one who started this, not The United States and not President Trump.

By threatening to further retaliate against US bases, US assets and US personnel, the leaders of Iran have made President Trump’s job much easier, however.

It is much easier to hold a country accountable for its actions as opposed to some innocuous terrorist group.

And that has been the problem all along…, where do we direct our retaliation?

Well, Iran has just solved that problem for The United States and President Trump.

airan 2

Since it’s common knowledge that most terrorist organizations in the Middle East are bankrolled by Iran, Iran has put itself in an awkward position.

Iran has positioned itself to “pay the price” for the actions taken by any group against The United States.

airan 3

And President Trump has put them on notice.

As anchorman Ron Burgundy observed, I think Iran will find that this “was not a good choice.”

In fact, President Trump warned Iran that if it hits any Americans or American assets “we have targeted 52 Iranian sites” for retaliatory strikes.

airan 1

According to Jeremy Diamond, Caroline Kelly and Greg Clary of CNN, “Iranian ambassador vows ‘harsh revenge.’”

And “Iranian foreign minister says airstrike ‘dangerous and foolish’”

Samantha Vinograd, an American foreign policy commentator who serves as National Security Analyst at CNN, said “Iran will consider this an act of war.”

Oh really?

Just like we consider an attack on any of our embassies an act of war.

We’ve heard it all before…, “death to America,” “rivers of blood,” yada, yada, yada.

“Donald Trump on Saturday drew what may come to be seen as the most significant red line of his presidency in a three-part tweet, vowing specific military action against Iran if it ‘strikes any Americans, or American assets.’”

“[President] Trump reiterated his warning in a series of tweets early Sunday, saying the United States just spent $2 trillion on military equipment.”

‘“We are the biggest and by far the BEST in the World! If Iran attacks an American Base, or any American, we will be sending some of that brand new beautiful equipment their way…and without hesitation!’ he tweeted. ‘They attacked us, & we hit back. If they attack again, which I would strongly advise them not to do, we will hit them harder than they have ever been hit before!’”

‘“Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader who had just killed an American, & badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime…. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 4, 2020’”

‘“He was already attacking our Embassy, and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years. Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!  — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 4, 2020’”

“The string of tweets came after the White House formally notified Congress on Saturday of the US operation that killed Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani on Thursday.”

airan 4

‘“Iran will be held fully responsible for lives lost, or damage incurred, at any of our facilities,’ Trump tweeted from Florida. ‘They will pay a very BIG PRICE! This is not a Warning, it is a Threat.’”

“And later Tuesday, while speaking with reporters as he entered a New Year’s Eve gala at Mar-a-Lago, the President said he doesn’t want war but that if it comes to conflict, Iran wouldn’t last long.”

‘“I don’t think that would be a good idea for Iran,’ Trump said, adding later that a potential conflict ‘would go very quickly.’”

airan 9

MrEricksonRules has been promoting a strategy like this for years.

All that was needed was an identifiable enemy who could be held accountable and a leader bold enough to issue this type of ultimatum.

Way to go, Mr. President…, way to go.

Lisa “the lover” Page is suing the FBI and the DOJ.  Well isn’t that special!

Yes folks…, Lisa (the lying, treasonous, adulteress) Page is suing her own deep state friends at the FBI and the DOJ.

afbi 1

How the world turns!

Gregg Re of Fox News reports, “Lisa Page sues FBI and DOJ, citing ‘cost of therapy’ after Trump mocked her salacious text messages.”

Please refer to my previous blog, “Lisa “one of ‘the treasonous lovers’” Page is outraged at President Trump?! From December 3, 2019.

https://mrericksonrules.com/2019/12/03/lisa-one-of-the-treasonous-lovers-page-is-outraged-at-president-trump/

“Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page is suing the FBI and Department of Justice, alleging that the government’s publication of her salacious text messages with anti-Trump ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok constituted a breach of the Federal Privacy Act.”

“In the complaint filed Tuesday, the 39-year-old Page said she suffered numerous damages, including a ‘permanent loss of earning capacity due to reputational damage’ and ‘the cost of therapy to cope with unwanted national media exposure and harassment’ caused by the disclosure.”

What was the extent of the damage suffered by President Trump as a result of your treasonous behavior, Lisa?

Just the fact that you have the nerve to sue the government because of their reaction and President Trump’s reaction to your treasonous coup, with your co-conspirator “lover,” Peter Stzrok, exhibits your perceived and twisted level of entitlement and privilege.

“Page’s complaint also sought reimbursement for ‘the cost of childcare during and transportation to multiple investigative reviews and appearances before Congress,’ the ‘cost of paying a data-privacy service to protect her personal information,’ and attorney’s fees.”

“On Dec. 12, 2017, Page said in the complaint, ‘DOJ and/or FBI officials disclosed’ her sensitive text messages ‘directly to a select group of reporters to ensure they would become public.’ Page alleged that after discovery, she would be able to prove that senior officials knew they were violating the law, and that their conduct was ‘willful and intentional.’”

Oh…, you mean they leaked information to the press like your “lover” did as part of the treasonous coup against President Trump?

Karma’s a bitch, ain’t it?

afbi 8

“Page’s lawsuit lamented that [President] Trump’s tweets about Page’s texts ‘have been retweeted and favorited millions of times.’ Trump, Page went on, has ‘targeted’ her ‘by name in more than 40 tweets and dozens of interviews, press conferences, and statements from the White House, fueling unwanted media attention that has radically altered her day-to-day life.’”

Awwwww.

That’s typically what people do when they’re attacked, Lisa…, they defend themselves.

The plain and simple truth is “you started it.”

Apparently your slutty and treasonous brain was writing checks it wasn’t prepared to cash.

afbi 2

“She argued that federal law prevents agencies from disclosing personal records about individuals ‘unless an exception applies or the individual who is the subject of the record consents in writing to the disclosure.’”

I would say plotting a treasonous coup against The President of the United States would constitute an “exception.”

afbi 4

“Page’s lawsuit claimed that there was no public-interest justification for the government’s leak.”

Au contraire “lover girl!”

There is tons of “public interest” regarding you and your treasonous co-conspirator, who was also your illicit “lover!’

Are you kidding?!

This whole thing is better than watching “Game of Thrones!”

We all just can’t wait for the conclusion when you and “lover” boy are “perp walked” into custody!

“In a separate bombshell report issued Monday, Horowitz [Inspector General Michael Horowitz] extensively faulted the FBI’s secretive efforts to surveil a former Trump aide, which involved both Page and Strzok.”

afbi 11

Well there you go…, and there’s more coming where that came from.

“Page’s suit will likely face an immediate challenge from the government. The Supreme Court has previously ruled that suits against the government under the Privacy Act for mental and emotional distress are not immune from the doctrine of sovereign immunity, which limits the right of individuals to sue the federal government.”

Taking this into consideration, Lisa “the treasonous lover” Page must have an ulterior motive for filing the lawsuit…, since she has virtually no chance of winning it.

Perhaps she is trying to muster up as much sympathy for herself as she can before she get indicted.

afbi 5

“Her lawsuit does not contain an apology for her conduct, and she has long maintained that her anti-Trump views — which she shared with Strzok using FBI phones even as the two played key roles in the Hillary Clinton and Russia probes — did not affect her official duties.”

Of course not!

Not when your “official duties” included trying to take down a duly elected president!

“Strzok, a veteran counterintelligence agent who led FBI investigations into Clinton’s use of a private email server and ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team after his anti-Trump texts with Page came to light.  He was [FIRED!] from the FBI last August.

afbi 12

“Lisa Page left the FBI in May of 2018.”

“Like sands through the hourglass, so go the days of our lives.”

WINNING!

President Trump is absolutely right…, AGAIN!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “[President] Trump says America would be better off without the ‘CNNs of the world’ after fiery news conference.”

“President Trump ended Wednesday’s White House joint press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö by taking a shot at CNN.”

‘“The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation,’ Trump said.”

Can anyone possibly argue the validity of that statement?

Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of that statement?

It is now commonly acknowledged that our “press” has a definite liberal bias.

It has also become apparent, particularly within the last five to ten years, that the “press” has gone beyond being bias to promoting the liberal narrative of the moment.

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press….”

The founders of our country saw “the press” as an important component towards a healthy government and a healthy democracy.

According to Eugene Volokh and Gary T. Schwartz, Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law, for the Heritage.org website, “

This writing by the First Continental Congress in 1774, says, “The last right we shall mention regards the freedom of the press. The importance of this consists, besides the advancement of truth, science, morality, and arts in general, in its diffusion of liberal sentiments on the administration of Government, its ready communication of thoughts between subjects, and its consequential promotion of union among them, whereby oppressive officers are shamed or intimidated into more honorable and just modes of conducting affairs.”

So what are reasonable or accepted journalistic standards?

While various codes may have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability, as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public.

“…public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.”

It is not “the job” of “the press” to be oppositional or propositional.

So, again I ask, can anyone possibly argue the validity of President Trump’s statement?  Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of President Trump’s statement?

Apparently it is “the press” itself who is ready to argue The President’s point.

Again, President Trump commented “The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation.”

No sooner had the words left President Trump’s mouth, a male voice from somewhere in the room shouted, “We are, Mr. President!”

“A source inside the room told Fox News the person who shouted was CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.”

“Trump’s retort? ‘We would be far greater when we don’t have the CNNs of the world, who are corrupt people.’”

“Trump then thanked the attendees and walked off.”

“CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

And don’t hold your breath waiting either.

anocnn 12

In this instance, it is safe to use Jim Acosta as an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

Instead of recording and reporting, we have Jim Acosta choosing to interject himself into the story.

Again…, Acosta is an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

It also seems that CNN played right along…, demonstrating exactly what The President was referring to…, and making his point for him.

WINNING!
