“Listen, do you want to know a secret?”

The Beatles (and MrEricksonRules) asked these questions (sung along to the Beatles’ song by the same name):

“Listen, do you want to know a secret?”

“Do you promise not to tell?”

“Whoa-oh-oh, closer”

“Let me whisper in your ear”

“Say the words you long to hear”

Whoa-oh-oh, TREASON!

These deep state dems are all guilty!

They’re all guiltier than hell,

Whoa-oh-oh, TREASON!

aclass 20

Kind of catchy, isn’t it?

We hear about things being TOP SECRET and CLASSIFIED all of the time.

But who are these people with the power to withhold information from We The People, The Congress, The Senate, and even The President?

If we have learned anything over the last three plus years, it’s that these deep state bureaucrats are way too political, have way too much power, and feel they are above the law.

aclass 19

None of these people were elected…, and it seems that none of them feel accountable to anyone except the democrat hierarchy.

In this latest case, we have Senator Ron Johnson, of Wisconsin, requesting that an email from Susan Rice (Obama’s National security Advisor and former US Ambassador to The United Nations) be fully declassified.

I’m actually surprised the email in question wasn’t already deleted or had somehow disappeared, ala the Hillary Clinton emails.

According to Edmund DeMarche and Brooke Singman of Fox News, “On January 20, the last day of the Obama administration, outgoing National Security Adviser Susan Rice sat down to write her final memo.”

According to an anonymous source, Susan Rice starts of her memo by saying, “I have always loved you, Barack…”

Ha!

aclass 2

Anyway…, let’s get back to the matter of declassifying her entire email.

“Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., asked the Trump administration to declassify the entire email that President Obama’s former national security Susan Rice sent herself just before her boss was about to leave office, a report said.”

“Politico reported Monday that it viewed Johnson’s letter, which requested that Rice’s entire email that touched on the January 5, 2017, meeting be released. He said the email summarized the meeting where Obama and his top officials discussed the Michael Flynn case. Flynn was President Trump’s first national security adviser.”

“Earlier this month, Attorney General William Barr’s Justice Department dismissed the case against Flynn, who was seen as the key prosecution witness from Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign.”

aclass 7

“[President] Trump has been trying to go on the offensive after a string of developments he says bolstered his claim that the Russian collusion investigation conducted was nothing more than a political witch hunt.”

And President Trump shouldn’t even have to go on any “offensive.”  It has now been shown that none of the people who testified regarding “Russian collusion” testified to any ties between President Trump or anyone in his campaign or administration to Russia.

It absolutely was just a hoax and a witch hunt.

“The White House meeting on Jan. 5, 2017 has been the source of speculation.”

“The roster in attendance included [President] Obama, Vice President Biden, Rice, then-FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, then-CIA Director John Brennan and then-Director of National Intelligence James Capper and they talked about the Flynn investigation.”

Man!  If that isn’t a motley crew, then I don’t know what is!

“Obama asked Yates and Comey to ‘stay behind,’ and said he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador, about sanctions, an exhibit in the DOJ’s motion to dismiss the Flynn case said.”

Do you see the level of conspiracy here?

aclass 15

Do you see the level of hypocrisy here?

aclass 8

President Trump is vilified if he even overtly makes a public suggestion regarding what his attorney general should do.  And here we see the directors of all of these agencies in cahoots with each other and being directed by then President Obama.

Just a bunch of corrupt puppets and an even more corrupt puppet master.

Amazing.

But President Trump is impeached over some perfectly valid call with the president of The Ukraine?

Again…, amazing.

“Biden was recently asked about the meeting after the Trump administration released the Obama-era officials behind the Flynn’s ‘unmasking.’  Biden told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he was ‘aware that there was, that they’d asked for, an investigation. But that’s all I know about it.’”

aclass 11

“Rice and other Obama officials have insisted that they did nothing wrong and that ‘unmasking’ is routine.”

Oh, really?

aclass 13

aclass 18

You mean they didn’t just give themselves up walk themselves into a federal prison?

That’s odd.

And, yes…, we know now that “unmasking” was routine for Obummer and his seven dwarves…, but it shouldn’t be “routine” for anybody.

“Routinely” unmasking US citizens, and especially political rivals, is definitely an abuse of this power.

“Johnson has been a vocal critic of the Obama administration and its role in the Flynn fallout. He recently told Fox News that he has long felt that there ‘has been a concerted effort to sabotage’ the Trump White House.”

Ya think?

“Johnson wrote the letter to Barr and pointed out that that most of Rice’s email was already declassified, but a portion remains a mystery.”

A mystery?

Who is determining that this portion of her email remain inaccessible and a “mystery?”

What is it that the deep staters are so worried about in her email?

Who are they trying to protect?

It sure isn’t President Trump or anyone in his administration, I can assure you of that!

If they look like a duck, and walk like a duck, and talk like a duck…, THEY’RE A DUCK!

I keep hearing all of these conservative commentators referring to the illegal actions by Obama era officials as “failings.” The fake news, liberal propaganda media, of course, chooses to not make any mention of any of this.

To all of my conservative commentator friends referring to the behavior of Obama era administration officials, including Barack Obama himself, as “failings,” I say…,

THESE WERE NOT SIMPLY “FAILINGS!”

THESE WERE PREMEDITATED AND COORDINATED ACTS OF TREASON!

The Clinton Foundation is a loser…, just like its namesakes!

According to Evie Fordham of FOXBusiness News, “The Clinton Foundation posted its third straight year of losses following former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election loss, 2018 tax documents reveal.”

afound 1

“The foundation lost $16.8 million on revenue of $30.7 million in 2018. Revenue has dropped significantly every year since 2016.”

Hmmm…, I wonder why the sudden and significant drop in revenue since 2016?

Could it be because after 2016 Mrs. Clinton could not deliver on any reciprocal governmental favors!

BINGO!

afound 7

You know, the democrats, especially the Clintons, are all about the quid pro quo, even though they are the first to see and cry about “quid pro quo ghosts” everywhere else.  This is seemingly done to throw others off of their own track, or at least to give the fake news media something else to concentrate on.

“It has posted roughly $16 million in losses every year since 2015, when it had roughly $116 million in revenue.”

What kind of losses?

How is a “foundation” paying out more than it has?

There must be some kind of tax advantage to the Clintons with this scenario!

“Foundation director Bruce Lindsey [he really doesn’t “do” anything] saw his reportable compensation stay about the same in 2018 as it was the year prior, when he was paid just over $362,000.”

Wow!  That’s a nice salary there, Bruce!  But you are, after all, a good old boy, Clinton butt kisser and defender, who goes all the way back to the Arkansas days…, the Whitewater investigations, as well as Billy’s sexual exploits in the oval office.

I can imagine they owe you a little payback, as well as some on-going hush money!

“Clinton Foundation spokesman Brian Cookstra pushed back against media reports implying that the foundation is struggling.”

‘“These reports are not accurate. Our entire 990 [Form 990 (officially, the ‘Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax’) is a United States Internal Revenue Service form that provides the public with financial information about a nonprofit organization. It is often the only source of such information. It is also used by government agencies to prevent organizations from abusing their tax-exempt status.] shows our work was fully funded by donations, grants, savings from prior years, and interest from our endowment,’ Cookstra told FOX Business. ‘In the last year, the Clinton Foundation’s programs have grown to help more people, and we are committed to operating programs that are effective, efficient, and sustainable.’”

Spoken like a true Clinton spokesperson.

Deny, deny, deny.

Apparently this form is pretty complicated!  These business reporters can’t even properly discern their meaning according to Mr. Cookstra.

“Former President Bill Clinton started the foundation after leaving office. It operates in the U.S. and abroad and tackles problems including climate change and HIV/AIDS.”

“Problems including climate change and HIV/AIDS?”

“Problems including…?”

So, it was primarily created for these other “problems,” like money laundering, an avenue to receive more political donation money than legally possible, an avenue to receive political donation money from foreign entities than legally possible, an avenue by which to “pay off” people for any number of reasons, and just money on hand in general.

afound 12

afound 3

afound 4

BELIEVE ME…, the climate change and HIV/AIDS parts get .000001% of the foundation’s money…, if that much!

afound 2

Ask the people of Haiti about all of the Clinton Foundation money they were supposedly going to get compared to the peanuts they actually got.

afound 9

afound 8

But, of course, no one in the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is going to peek into that can of worms.

“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.

atreason 9

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.

The Obama puppet, Susan (weasel fried) Rice, is back in the news! 

I would like to begin by saying that NOT having to see her or listen to her (as well as her misguided boss) on a regular basis is one one of the great joys of my life right now.

That being said, there’s no denying that Susan Rice is quite an accomplished liar…, but you also have to admit that she is a very loyal accomplished liar.

It was quite obvious that she faithfully repeated only that which her sugar daddy, Barack Obama, desired.  And she was quite talented at repeating this stuff, over and over again, with a straight face.

asusanrice 11

On a recent podcast, hosted by two former Obama advisors, Susan Rice called Senator Lindsey Graham “a piece of sh#t.”

Well…, like the old adage says, “It takes one to know one, Susan!”

In any event her statement is her opinion…, and your opinion cannot be considered a lie!

Congratulations, Susan!

This might be the first genuinely honest statement to make its way out of your mouth!

So, without further adieu…, it is now my pleasure to present a special montage of Susan Rice memes, honoring our “liar extraordinaire,” especially selected for MrEricksonRules!

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.” – Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister

Yes my friends…, it’s true…, the democrats have adopted this Nazi strategy…, along with others.

accuse 1

If you stand back and objectively view what is going on in American politics…, it’s hard to deny that the democrats have morphed into a sick,  “new Nazi party,” with the propagandistic mainstream media as their partners is crime.

accuse 3

accuse 12

The democrats, of course, in keeping with their strategy, attempt to attach the “Nazi” moniker to the conservatives, and label President Trump as “Hitler.”

During the 2016 election, the democrats questioned whether the conservatives and Donald Trump would accept the results of the presidential election.

We now see that the democrats are the ones unwilling to accept the results of the 2016 election.

accuse 15

Donald Trump is accused of “Russian collusion,” and hounded about this for over two years.

We now see that it was Hillary Clinton and the rest of the democrats who colluded with Russia. It was the Clinton campaign that financed the phony Russian dossier.

Obama

Donald Trump is accused of “rigging” the 2016 election.

We now see that it was Hillary Clinton, the Obama administration, and the democrats who attempted to “rig” the election.  The Trump campaign was spied on by the very people who should have been protecting the campaign.

We have also learned how the liberals at Google and Facebook attempted to influence the election by directing users to pro-democrat sites and anti-conservative sites.

accuse 9

The President’s spokesperson, Kellyanne Conway is accused of violating The Hatch Act, which is a law designed to prohibit employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president, vice president, and certain designated high-level officials, from engaging in foreign discussions and negotiations independent of the government and its policy.  This was a baseless accusation.

We see these disingenuous charges as we see former Obama Secretary of State, John Kerry, in discussions with the leaders of Iran for some unknown reason, in violation of the Logan Act. The Logan Act is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. The intent behind the Act is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the government’s position.

accuse 17

accuse 16

Donald Trump is accused of obstruction of justice.

We now know that various members of the Obama administration (his DOJ, FBI and CIA) basically tried to establish a coup to take down the newly, and duly, elected President of the United States.

accuse 19

We saw the Obama administration illegally use the phony Russian dossier as a basis for obtaining FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.

accuse 14

We also saw Obama Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, meet with former President Bill Clinton in order to get Hillary off the hook for her shady and illegal email handling.

accuse 13

Donald Trump is accused of illegal dealings with Ukraine…, by someone who apparently has no direct knowledge of what supposedly occurred here.  How does that work, and what the hell does that mean?  This “twice removed whistle blower” is now apparently going to testify before Congress.  Isn’t hearsay inadmissible?

We now learn it was Joe Biden and the Obama administration who had the corrupt dealings with Ukraine.

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty,” then sit back and let the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” take over…, focusing on the democrats’ charges, while basically ignoring and covering-up the democrats’ sins.

It is somewhat effective with those who aren’t really paying attention…, and those who choose to look the other way.

What will be the next false accusation?

And the false accusation after that?

Keep your eyes open.  We have over a whole year to go until the 2020 elections.

The “fake news,” liberal propaganda has only begun to hit the fan!

accuse 10

This is what the “Occupy Democrats” posted when Barack Obama was President. I wonder if they would apply the same beliefs where President trump is concerned?

“These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”  – Obi Wan Kenobi (Star Wars) “The Obama presidency had no scandals in 8 years.”  – Joe Biden A “Jedi” mind trick and a “liberal propaganda” mind trick!

Yes…, “Sleepy, creepy” Joe Biden actually said that.

scandals 10

And we hear a myriad of the other “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” echo this false and deceptive claim over and over again.

The View’s Joy “joyless” Behar said, “President Obama, for eight years, was completely scandal-free,” and NBC’s Tom “#METOO” Brokaw said, “He’s been scandal free, frankly, in the White House. We haven’t had that what for a while.”

“If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.” – Joseph Goebbels, Nazi politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany.

scandals 1

According to Jason Chaffetz, a former U.S. Congressman and a Fox News contributor, “The bewildering claim by Democratic presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden this week that that ‘there wasn’t a single, solitary hint of scandal’ during the Obama-Biden administration may help explain why President Trump refers to Biden as Sleepy Joe.”

“Biden must have slept through the eight years of scandals that resulted in American deaths at home and abroad, the ‘weaponization’ of our executive branch agencies, and the compromise of our classified information when he served as vice president under President Barack Obama.”

scandals 9

Ha!  Let’s take a better look at those great Obama-Biden “scandal free” years!

This shouldn’t take too long…, right?

Wrong.

“President Obama and his mouthpieces [including VP Joe Biden] have embarked on a bizarre scheme to hypnotize America into forgetting the many scandals of his presidency. They seem to think that intoning “this administration hasn’t had a scandal” over and over again will make history disappear. It’s the lamest Jedi Mind Trick ever, and is being pushed on people who know Star Wars is just a movie,” John Hayward of Breitbart.com.

scandals 4

Here’s a short list of the many scandals Team Obama[-Biden] thinks it can make America forget:

The Great “Stimulus” Heist:

Obama seems to think nobody will remember he grabbed almost a trillion dollars for “stimulus” spending, created virtually zero private-sector jobs with it, allowed a great deal of the money to vanish into thin air, and spent the rest of his presidency complaining that he needed hundreds of billions more to repair roads and bridges.  [Then] Obama added insult to injury by appointing Vice President Joe Biden as the “sheriff” who would supposedly find all that missing stimulus loot!

Americans mostly ended up footing the bill for what was an army of government jobs, and a lavish network of slush funds for the Democratic Party and its union allies. Sorry, Democrats, but that’s more than just failed policy. It’s one of the worst government-spending scandals in our history.

Operation Fast and Furious:

Obama partisans seem to think any given example of abuse or ineptitude by their man stopped being a “scandal” the moment it seemed clear he wouldn’t be impeached over it. Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration’s insane program to use American gun dealers and straw purchasers to arm Mexican drug lords, is a scandal with a huge body count, prominently including Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata, plus hundreds of Mexican citizens. Agent Terry’s family certainly thinks it qualifies as a scandal.

It’s difficult to imagine any Republican administration surviving anything remotely close to Fast and Furious. The media would have dogged a Republican president without respite, especially when it became clear his Attorney General was putting political spin ahead of accountability and the safety of the American people. Remember, AG Eric Holder escaped perjury charges by claiming he didn’t know what his own subordinates were doing – a pioneering, but sadly not unique, example of an Obama official using his or her incompetence as a defense. For years afterward, we would hear some version of “I’m not a crook, I’m just completely inept” everywhere from the Department of Health and Human Services to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

But this was Barack Obama, so the media downplayed Fast and Furious news… to the point where viewers of NBC News learned about the scandal for the first time when Holder was on the verge of being held in contempt by Congress for it.

ObamaCare:

Everything about ObamaCare is a scandal, from the President’s incessant lies about keeping your old plan if you liked it, to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s “we need to pass it to find out what’s in it” dereliction of Congressional duty.

ObamaCare is a scam, pure and simple – sold on false pretenses by people who knew it wasn’t going to work the way they promised. It doesn’t feel right to dismiss it as a “failed” scheme when so much of the failure was intentional. The bill was so sloppily crafted that Democrats were basically signing blank sheets of paper when they rushed it through Congress in a foul-smelling cloud of back-room deals. ObamaCare’s designers precipitated a constitutional crisis by forgetting they left in a provision to cut subsidies for states that didn’t set up health-care exchanges – a provision that would have killed the entire program stone-dead two years ago, if it had been enforced as written.

scandals 12

The Supreme Court rewrote ObamaCare on the fly twice to keep it alive, which is a scandal in and of itself. President Obama delayed and rewrote the law so often it was impossible to keep track of the changes, cutting Congress out of the loop completely. (Actually, someone did keep careful track of them, and the tally was up to 70 distinct changes by January 2016.)

That made some of Obama’s rewritten mandates and deadlines blatantly illegal – but then, the Affordable Care Act isn’t really a “law” in the sense American government understood the term. In practice it became something entirely new, an enabling act that gave the executive unlimited power to do whatever it thought necessary to keep the system running. If subverting the American system of government isn’t a scandal, what is?

And let’s not forget the scandal of ObamaCare’s disastrous launch, foisted on the American people even though its designers knew it had severe flaws – the billion-dollar website that cost another billion dollars to fix after it crashed, accompanied by a constellation of state exchanges that blew up like Roman candles of bureaucratic incompetence. Let us not forget the absolute zero accountability for this disaster, mismanaged by everyone from President Obama to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who treated the biggest new government program in several generations as though it were a minor side project that could be handled by subordinates with minimal supervision.

Spying on journalists:

Establishment media came about as close to falling out of love with Barack Obama as ever when his administration was caught spying on journalists.

Why, if the reporter subjected to the most egregious surveillance, James Rosen, didn’t work for Fox News, the mainstream media might have started treating Obama like a (shudder) Republican. Rosen was treated so badly that even Attorney General Eric Holder eventually admitted feeling a bit of “remorse” about it. Apparently he felt so much anguish that he suffered temporary amnesia and forgot to tell Congress that he signed off on the request to wiretap Rosen while he was testifying under oath.

The IRS Scandal:

The selective targeting of conservative groups by a politicized Internal Revenue Service was a scandal grenade Democrats and their media pals somehow managed to smother, even though the story began with the IRS admitting wrongdoing.

Democrats suffocated the scandal by acting like circus clowns during congressional hearings, but at no point were the actual facts of the case truly obscured: yes, pro-life and Tea Party groups were deliberately targeted for extra scrutiny, their tax exemption applications outrageously delayed until after the 2012 election without actually being refused. If anything remotely comparable had been done to, say, environmentalist and minority activist groups by the IRS under a Republican administration, the results would have been apocalyptic.

There’s also no question about the facts of the follow-up scandal, in which IRS officials brazenly lied about having backups of relevant computer data. The American people were expected to believe that multiple state-of-the-art hard drives failed, and were instantly shredded instead of being subjected to data recovery procedures.

Luckily for the politicized IRS, the Justice Department was hyper-politicized under Obama too, so no charges were filed, and scandal kingpin Lois Lerner got to enjoy her taxpayer-funded retirement after taking the Fifth to thwart lawful congressional investigation.

Benghazi:

This is the clearest example of Obama and his supporters thinking all of his pre-2012 scandals ceased to exist the moment he won re-election. Benghazi has been investigated extensively, and argued about passionately, since the night of September 11, 2012. Nothing can change the absolute fact that the Obama administration’s story for the first few weeks after the attack was false, and they knew it was false. They spun a phony story to buy themselves a little time during a presidential election campaign, and it worked.

Nothing can change the fact that Libya was a disaster after Obama’s unlawful military operation. Nothing can obscure the truth that Ambassador Christopher Stevens was sent into a known terrorist hot zone without a backup plan to ensure his safety. Everything else from Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their defenders is pure political spin. They dragged the story out for years, until they thought it couldn’t hurt them any more. That doesn’t erase its status as a scandal. (And they were evidently incorrect in their belief that it couldn’t hurt them anymore!)

Hillary Clinton’s “secret server:”

While we’re on the subject of Hillary Clinton, her secret email server is an Obama scandal, too. She perpetrated her email offenses while working as his Secretary of State, and contrary to Obama’s false assertions, he knew about it.

Plenty of Obama officials other than Clinton played email games, most infamously EPA administrator Lisa Jackson, who created a false identity for herself named “Richard Windsor” to get around government transparency rules.

NSA Spying Scandal:

Opinions about the nature and intensity of this scandal vary wildly across the political spectrum, but there’s no doubt that Edward Snowden’s pilfering of sensitive National Security Agency data was a debacle that damaged national security. We had the ghastly spectacle of Attorney General Holder thanking Snowden for performing a public service by exposing surveillance programs Holder’s own administration didn’t want to talk about.

President Obama and his administration made many false statements as they tried to contain the political damage. The fallout included significant losses for U.S. companies, and diplomatic problems for the United States. Just about everything Obama did before, during, and after the Snowden saga damaged the relationship between American citizens and their government.

Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl:

No verdict [or pardon] can erase the scandalous way this administration conducted the prisoner swap that freed him from the Taliban and its allies. Many lies were told, the law was flouted, a deal of questionable wisdom was struck with his captors, and outraged Americans demanded recognition for the soldiers who died searching for Bergdahl after he abandoned his post.

Iran nuclear deal and ransom payment:

The Iran nuclear deal was pushed with lies and media manipulation. The infamous pallet of cash that wasn’t a ransom has become symbolic of Obama’s [dishonesty and deceit] and penchant for breaking the rules, when he thinks following them is too much trouble.

Polluting the Colorado River:

The Environmental Protection Agency managed to turn the Colorado River orange under this greenest of green Presidents. Of course there was a cover-up. Would you expect anything less from this “transparent” administration?

The GSA scandal:

The General Services Administration was caught wasting ridiculous amounts of taxpayer money on lavish parties and silly projects. Heroic efforts to resist accountability were made, leaving puzzled observers to ask what it took to get fired from government employment under Barack Obama. (Alas, it was hardly the last time that question would be asked.) Oh, and of course there was a cover-up from the Most Scandal-Free Administration Ever.

The VA death-list scandal:

The Department of Veterans Affairs has long been troubled, but the big scandals broke on Obama’s watch, most infamously the secret death lists veterans were put on while executives handed in phony status reports and signed themselves up for big bonuses. Obama was more interested in spinning the news and minimizing his political exposure than addressing problems; in few areas outside ObamaCare has his rhetoric been more hollow, his promises more meaningless.

Solyndra:

The marquee green energy scandal wrote “crony capitalism” into the American political lexicon, as corners were cut and protocols ignored to shovel billions of taxpayer dollars at companies with absurdly unrealistic business models. President Obama’s ability to pick bad investments was remarkable. Luckily for him, American taxpayers covered his losses.

So…, “There wasn’t a single, solitary hint of scandal” during the Obama-Biden era, huh, Joe?

That statement alone should disqualify you from having the opportunity to run for the office of president.

There are lies and then there are LIES!

scandals 3

Try telling the family of slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, killed by a “fast and furious” weapon, that the Obama-Biden administration was scandal-free.

Try telling the families of four people murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya, including our ambassador there, and the brave men who fought to save them that there were no scandals.

Beyond that, the Obama-Biden administration deliberately weaponized government agencies to abuse their power for political purposes. At the time, we had no idea just how extensive that effort was.

We are now starting to understand to how extensive.

We were unaware of the use of federal law enforcement resources to spy on an opposing political campaign…, The Trump campaign.

The truth about this is just now starting to come out.

And…, we know without a doubt that the Internal Revenue Service was used to target conservative nonprofits prior to the 2012 presidential election.

Add to that the fact that President Obama himself was sending emails to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton using her private email address, on her private secret server.

Add that the FBI protected Clinton, failing to take custody of laptops and devices, failing to record interviews with her, allowing material witnesses to act as counsel in those interviews, and manipulating America into believing Clinton could not be prosecuted unless they could prove her intent.

Paul Bedard of The Washington Examiner asks, “Was former President Obama the “scandal free,” top 10 greatest president he claimed to be as he exited the White House?  To his aides and most in the media, the answer has been a hearty ‘yes.’”

“Obama’s [and Biden’s] supporters in the media, academia, and the grassroots of the Democratic Party are invested in the idea that his [this] presidency was an unparalleled success, and that he was the archetype of presidential ethics. Nothing could be further from the truth…,” wrote author Matt Margolis.

How portions of the liberals’ playbook has evolved AND the recently released Mueller Report!

I would contend that prior to the 1980’s the political playbook for liberals and conservatives was pretty similar.

During the 90’s, Bill and Hillary Clinton changed the “deflect accusations” portion of the liberal playbook to “deny, deny, deny” and “lie, lie, lie.”  They just would not admit to anything…, even if they were caught red-handed.

blaming others 1

Then in the 2000’s, in addition to “deny, deny, deny” and “lie, lie, lie,” the liberals went one step further.  Before they could even be accused of doing something, they would take the initiative and blame the conservatives of doing exactly what they were already doing; thus not only getting themselves off the hook, but giving the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” an excuse to harass and investigate conservatives.

I would say it’s a pretty ingenious strategy, however, this strategy only works when you have a cooperative media.  Having the cooperative media changes the strategy from ingenious to diabolical…, and even treasonous in some cases.

blaming others 2

We have now seen this new strategy employed over and over again.

Most recently we have the cases of the democrats charging President Trump and the republicans of tampering with the election of 2016, Russian collusion, and obstruction of justice…, all of which the democrats were doing, but the complicit media, of course, looked the other way.

The recent completion and subsequent release of Robert Mueller’s report has cleared The President and his people of any election tampering, as well as any type of Russian collusion.

Mueller and his team, in fact, were unable to come up with ANYTHING they could charge The President with.

blaming others 5

If they could’ve you know they would’ve!

So what are we left with?

We’re left with the democrats crying about redactions in the report and more unfounded claims of obstruction of justice.

President Trump wasn’t charged with anything…, so what exactly do they feel he was obstructing…, the proving of his innocence in all of these manufactured matters?

The whole thing would be funny if it wasn’t so sad and pathetic.

blaming others 6

So now we have come full circle, for the first time I believe, regarding a topic(s) put forward by this “preemptive accusal strategy.”

The question remains then…, if your opposition is cleared of those things you accused them of, which you did or are still doing, how do we proceed and what can we expect?

If matters are handled correctly, this could be an epic beat down for the democrats.

Not only would they be held accountable for the wild goose chase of an investigation, but they would then begin to face the music for their own sins in these matter(s).

This has the potential to be an extremely beautiful thing…, especially if President Trump rolls in the 2020 election and regains control of The House of representatives on his coat tails.

The democrats’ sole mission now is to keep the American peoples’ eyes off of the ensuing investigations into democrats and to cover their a$$es by any means possible.

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” will of course be doing its best to assist in these matters, but I still have faith that some semblance of justice will be done, and karma will collect its toll.

So the American people weren’t the only ones who got lectured to by Barack Obama!

One of the main things that always annoyed me about former President Obama was that I always felt he was talking down to me.

obama lecturing 7

Apparently he started to believe all of his “fake news” propaganda and press clippings, and actually believed he knew something about something.

I don’t know about you, but I was always grateful to President Obama when he would decide to grace us by sharing his wisdom and knowledge with all of us unenlightened “trailer trash.”

obama lecturing 3

That, on the “flip-side,” is one of the things I like about President Trump.  I feel like he’s communicating with me on equal terms; talking with me not at me.   

obama lecturing 8

Hungary’s top diplomat has the same feelings apparently.  He praised President Trump and his NATO policies recently, while contrasting President Trump’s positive communication style against the Obama-era “lecturing.”

According to Adam Shaw for Fox News, “Hungary’s top diplomat, in an interview with Fox News, praised President Trump’s push for NATO partners to boost military spending, and said the administration’s treatment of Central European countries as allies represents a stark contrast from what he called the “lecturing” of the Obama years.”

‘“Since the current administration has been in power, the relationship has totally changed and the relationship is based on mutual respect which used not to be the case,’ Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told Fox News. ‘So before this administration took office, “lecturing” was basically the right expression to describe our relationship.’”

“Szijjarto’s comments came just days after Hungary and the U.S. signed a new Defense Cooperation Agreement (DCA).  A State Department official told Fox News that the new agreement means the U.S. and Hungary will be ‘better positioned to meet and overcome current and future challenges that threaten stability in the region and beyond.’”

“Szijjarto hailed the agreement as a ‘clear signal’ of the change that has come to the U.S.-Hungarian relationship since Trump entered the White House.”

“Both Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Trump have won elections running campaigns heavy on nationalism and tough on illegal immigration (Hungary has built two border fences since 2015).  Hungary was one of the countries to join the U.S. in withdrawing from the U.N. global pact on migration last year.”

The United Nations Global Migration Agreement is a non-binding deal that has created political tensions in several countries, with politicians claiming it will lead to more migration or erode a country’s ability to be in charge of immigration laws.

It was designed “to de-politicize migration again but the pact has done the opposite,” Marion Anne Perrine “Marine” Le Pen, President of the French National Rally political party, has said.

The United States was the first country to pull out of the agreement in December of 2017.  A statement at the time said “The agreement was incompatible with US sovereignty and our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone.”

“Hungary followed in July 2018 – and, at the time, the foreign minister said: ‘This pact poses a threat to the world from the aspect that it could inspire millions [of migrants].’”

According to Jack Goodman for BBC News, “Criticism in Europe rose as the date for the signing of the agreement approached.”

‘“The country that signs the pact, obviously signs a pact with the devil,’ said Ms. Le Pen.

“Polish Interior Minister Joachim Brudziński has said the pact ‘could also be an incentive for illegal migration.’”

“Germany backed the agreement but faced stern opposition.  Alice Weidel, leader in the German parliament of the far-right party Alternative for Germany (AfD), said: ‘In effect, illegal migration is being legalized.’”

Adam Shaw continued by saying, “Both Orban and Trump have been criticized for their immigration policies, while liberal groups in Hungary have alleged that the Orban government is eroding judicial independence and cracking down harshly on political opposition groups, including passing a ‘Stop Soros’ package of laws aimed at curbing the influence of Hungarian-American left-wing billionaire George Soros in the country.”

obama lecturing 10

Wow…, this George Soros guy really makes the rounds!  I still don’t really understand what he’s actually trying to accomplish.  I just get the feeling he hates everybody and just wants people to suffer.

I think deep down he has a serious inferiority complex.  It’s a combination of the “Napoleon complex” and the “Ugly duckling complex!”

If you’re not familiar with the term, “The Napoleon complex occurs in people of short stature.  It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behavior, and carries the implication that such behavior is compensatory for the subject’s stature,” according to Wikipedia.

I would add that he would also seem to exhibit “The God complex;” believing he has the ability to control people and situations by virtue of his seemingly limitless funds.

I do know one thing though…, George Soros did not become a billionaire while living under a socialistic system of government, which he now promotes for the rest of us.  I think Soros would consider the downfall of Venezuela to be his road map to success.

“Szijjarto indicated there are similarities between the opposition facing Trump and the Hungarian government.”

‘“We understand the global liberal political elite and global liberal media hate your president, they hate what he has been doing, but they hate what we have been doing as well,’ he said.”

Hmmm…, sounds like they have their own issues with the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” and the so-called “elites.”

‘“We are very happy that this administration looks at us Central Europeans as allies instead of lecturing us how to accommodate our life,’ he said, calling it a ‘totally different approach’ from the previous [Obama] administration.”

“Szijjarto said Hungary has no issue with Trump’s push for nations to meet commitments to spend 2 percent of GDP on defense.”

‘“We think that it was absolutely legitimate from his perspective to argue for nation’s commitments to be fulfilled as soon as possible,’ he said, adding that Hungary had already met that commitment.”

“Trump’s aggressive stance with NATO allies, including reports that he has considered withdrawing from the alliance, has led to criticism he is weakening NATO.  But Szijjarto’s remarks echo those of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg who, in a speech to Congress this month, said that Trump’s push to increase defense spending made the alliance stronger.”

obama lecturing and trump nato

Hmmm…, that’s interesting. Things sure seem quite different when you hear them right from the horse’s mouth as opposed to hearing them through the filter of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

WINNING!
