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.

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?

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.

Where’s the “quid pro quo?”  Look at “quid pro Joe!”

Now that the impeachment attempt (the coup attempt) against President Trump has failed miserably for the democrats…, what are we left with?

ajoe 8

I’m sure we’ll have a pathetic vote in Congress to still impeach the president, even though their witch hunt (part two) failed to uncover ANYTHING President Trump actually did wrong.

ajoe 12

The Senate will then dispatch the fraudulent impeachment fairy tale in short order, and the democrats will be left to concoct yet another anti-Trump fairy tale.

The democrats and their co-conspirators, the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” will not be getting the impeachment of The President for Christmas!

They have not been very nice, but rather quite naughty!

Quite a few democrats and fake news journalists” will be finding coal (“beautiful clean burning coal”) in their Christmas stockings this year!

I also have a feeling that the upcoming Senate hearings and the newly announced investigations by the Ukrainian government will combine to make 2020 a bad year for Joe and Hunter Biden, the democrats, and the deep state in general.

It’s a wonderful life!

I’d like to refer you to my blog from November 6, 2019 titled, “This is how President Trump could destroy Joe Biden in a debate in about 5 minutes:”

With the Inspector General’s report dealing with FISA court abuses, and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation results coming out just in time for Christmas, 2020 is shaping up to be a bad year for the democrats, which will be capped by another crushing defeat at the hands of President Trump and all of the loyalist American deplorables!

“Brennan and Clapper sittin’ in a tree, P-L-E-A-D-I-N-G (the fifth)…, first comes lying, then comes spying…, then comes Brennan and Clapper crying!”

According to Gregg Re and Ed Henry of Fox News, “U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into potential FBI and Justice Department misconduct in the run-up to the 2016 election through the spring of 2017 has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation, two sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News.”

atreason 16

“One source added that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s upcoming report on alleged FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign will shed light on why Durham’s probe has become a criminal inquiry.  Horowitz announced on Thursday his report would be available to the public soon, with ‘few’ redactions.”

“The investigation’s new status means Durham can subpoena witnesses, file charges, and impanel fact-finding grand juries.”

atreason 14

“Sources also told Fox News that Durham was ‘very interested’ to question former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan.”

atreason 3

It has also been recently reported that all of these un-elected, deep state, scumbags have started to “lawyer up.”

When Trump supporters were chanting “DRAIN THE SWAMP!” during his rallies, this is exactly what we were talking about!

Thank you Sir for keeping another one of your campaign promises here.

atreason 6

And just think…, if Hillary Clinton had won, we would have never learned about any of this.

Can you imagine how popular she is among all of these “swamp monsters” who are being dragged out into the sunlight thanks in part to her ineptness?

The problem is none of these treasonous vermin can throw each other under the bus without harming themselves as well.

It’s a beautiful thing.  When one goes down they will all go down.

This is one of the reasons why the democrats are SOOOO desperate to keep their illegitimate “impeachment inquiry” active, so as to give the “liberal propaganda, fake news media” something to focus on as opposed to all of this treasonous and illegal behavior by the democrats.

“Brennan and Clapper [and let’s not forget James Comey] were at the helm… when an unverified and largely discredited dossier, written by British ex-spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, was used to help justify a secret surveillance warrant against former Trump adviser Carter Page in the run-up to the 2016 election.”

atreason 1

atreason 5

This “secret surveillance warrant” then gave the Obama Administration, the Clinton campaign and our mislead intelligence services carte blanche access into spying on the entire Trump campaign.

atreason 12

atreason 7

atreason 8

“The FBI apparently obscured the fact that the Clinton campaign and DNC funded the dossier in its warrant application, telling the secret court only that the dossier was prepared at the behest of an unidentified presidential campaign.”

The FBI then “doubled down” by lying in its original FISA application and subsequent renewals.  The FBI intentionally lied to the FISA court about Steele’s dossier not being the direct source for a Yahoo News article implicating Carter Page in Russian collusion.

These were all lies, it seems, the “esteemed” FISA court was more than willing to accept.

Have you noticed the FISA court has not seemed too distraught over the fact that they were intentionally (and it appears, willingly) mislead.

It’s all one disgusting, swampy, hot mess.  But that’s the way these swamp rats like it. The more convoluted and confusing the better.  All the better for them to weasel their way out of any accountability and any potential wrong doing.

Becket Adams of The Washington Examiner says, regarding John Brennan, “Lastly, and maybe this is a little petty, but I really don’t have the time or energy for all these piety lectures from a known liar and sneak. As I’ve noted before, we’re not so fallen a people that we deserve these sermons from an ex-CIA director whose chief qualities are being a bald-faced liar and a drone war enthusiast.”

Ouch!

atreason 20

“From spying on the U.S. Senate, to lying repeatedly about spying on the U.S. Senate, to supporting torture programs until they were no longer politically expedient, to lying about drone war kills, Brennan would do better to leave the ethics lectures to the ethical.”

Double ouch!

Debra Heine, of the American Greatness website, says, “During an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo Sunday morning, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) suggested that former CIA director John Brennan lied under oath to Congress in May 2017.”

It also seems clear he lied on other occasions as well.

There are supposed to be penalties for lying to Congress.

Section 1621 of the U.S. Code stipulates that anyone who “willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true” is guilty of perjury and shall be fined and/or imprisoned up to five years.

Section 1001 covers false statements made while not under oath. The section stipulates that “whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the government of the United States, knowingly and willfully” provides false information or conceals information may also be fined or imprisoned up to five years.

According to Madeline Osburn for The Federalist, “Five years ago to this month, former director of national intelligence James Clapper lied to Congress, and he has been scrambling to make excuses for the ongoing lies and leaks ever since.”

“In March 2013, Sen. Ron Wyder asked Clapper under oath if the U.S. government was collecting ‘any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.’ Clapper paused and said, ‘No, sir. … Not wittingly.’ Three months later, Edward Snowden leaked documents revealing that the National Security Agency was in fact collecting in bulk domestic call records and other various internet communications on millions of Americans.”

“This was the first of many ‘untruths,’ as Clapper likes to call them. There are other lies Clapper has cooked up since trying to explain his false statements under oath.”

“Clapper leaked information about the dossier briefing to [Jake] Tapper [of CNN], lied to Congress about leaking, and was then given a contributor contract with CNN a few months later. As Mollie Hemingway reported, these lies would all eventually prove to be a set-up scheme by Clapper and then-FBI director James Comey to give legitimacy to the fabricated dossier.”

“Clap on, clap off…, clap on, clap off, the CLAPPER!”

atreason 10

“Nevertheless, in responding to the expanded Durham probe, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff, D-Calif., accused the Trump administration of misconduct.”

‘“These reports, if true, raise profound new concerns that the Department of Justice under Attorney General William Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge,’ they said. ‘If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution, or to help the President with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage.’”

Oh no they didn’t!

Please tell me Nadler and Schiff did not accuse President Trump of “political revenge” and “political retribution,” and bemoan the fact that that “the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage!”

These people are the ones seeking “political revenge” and “political retribution!”

They’ve been seeking “political revenge” and “political retribution” since President Trump’s inauguration day, back in January of 2017, and they haven’t taken a day off since!

My friends…, if there is ANY justice in this world, President Trump will receive some level of vindication, and more than a few of these swamp rats will spend at least some time behind bars.
