“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.

atreason 11

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!

Drum roll please…

Shhh…, Apple (Siri) is listening…

Seriously Apple?

Seriously?

This is now my third blog dealing with Apple’s unethical behavior…, which includes them lying about it.

According to Christopher Carbone of Fox News, “Apple has halted its practice of having human contractors listen to users’ Siri recordings to ‘grade’ them, following an investigative report on the issue.”

apple 2

Wait…, what?!

They’re “grading” the recordings!

Ha!

Ya, I bet they are!  It would probably be better described as “ranking,” however!

‘“Too often we see that so-called “smart assistants” are in fact eavesdropping,’ said Silkie Carlo, the director of the U.K. campaign group Big Brother Watch. ‘We also see that they often collect and use people’s personal information in ways that people do not know about and cannot control.’”

“The British publication previously reported that contractors could hear details of private medical discussions and couples having sex.”

Oh yeah…, definitely “ranking!”

I’d like to hear their top 10 list that they have “graded!”

“The Tim Cook-led company [Apple] told The Guardian, which broke the initial story, that it would not restart the program until it had thoroughly reviewed the practice.  It also committed to adding the ability for users to opt out of the quality assurance mechanism altogether in a future software update.”

Oh yes…, by all means…, please…, “thoroughly review this practice!”

And then they go on to call their spying on people a “quality assurance mechanism!”

Hilarious!

It is quite apparent that Apple believes the rest of us are all idiots if they felt that BS would fly.

Please…, give us a little credit!

apple 7

“Apple told The Guardian in a statement: ‘We are committed to delivering a great Siri experience while protecting user privacy. While we conduct a thorough review, we are suspending Siri grading globally. Additionally, as part of a future software update, users will have the ability to choose to participate in grading.’”

Oh yeah…, it’s “a great Siri experience” alright…, for these eavesdroppers!

apple 6

It’s such a relief that, in the future, you’ll offer us the ability to choose whether we want to be spied on or not!

apple 1

In addition, “Apple has repeatedly made privacy a centerpiece of its corporate image, with Cook [Apple’s CEO] even seeming to take subtle shots at Big Tech rivals like Facebook and Google.”

Isn’t there a saying about being careful about throwing rocks when you live in a glass house or something?

Will these giant corporate idiots never learn?

The answer to that is “no,” and we probably won’t either.

Fox News reached out to Apple for comment on this story, to no avail.

My reaction to some recent headlines:  (1) Lock up Attorney General William Barr?  (2) Another date that will “go down in infamy?” (3) Why are the House Democrats out to get Attorney General Barr?  (4) Democrat lawmaker records himself harassing a pro-life woman.  And (5) Joy “less” Behar of “The View” is at it again. 

There are so many topics I’d like to offer my insight on, but so little time!  So every once in a while I like to respond to a number of articles that I couldn’t necessarily devote an entire daily blog to on an article by article basis.

Welcome to my second edition of “MrEricksonRules’ headline buffet line!”

“Imprisoning Bill Barr is [the] left’s new rallying cry: ‘Have him locked up!’”

By Brooke Singman of Fox News.

“The battle between congressional Democrats and the Justice Department over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report has reached new levels of vitriol, as some on the left call for Attorney General Bill Barr to be physically dragged in to testify or even locked up for defying congressional subpoenas.”

“The demands have escalated after the attorney general refused to appear before the House Judiciary Committee last week amid disagreements over the format of the hearing.”

“Though he testified a day earlier on the Senate side, Democrats on the committee still want to bring in the DOJ leader to answer questions on the conclusion of Mueller’s investigation. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., also imposed a Monday morning deadline for Barr to turn over the full, unredacted Mueller report and additional files — a deadline the DOJ apparently missed, prompting Nadler to schedule a Wednesday vote on contempt proceedings against Barr.”

Everything that William Barr has done up this point is completely within in rights and responsibilities as Attorney General.

What we have on the democrats’ side is a bunch of grandstanding, and now desperation, as they learned that Mr. Barr was looking into what really happened regarding Russian collusion, and what really happened regarding spying on Americans, and what really happened that caused this fraudulent investigation to be launched in the first place.

headlines 3

Their main goal now is to discredit him, silence him, and preferably have him resign or be removed from office.  Anything but allow him to drag their “swampy” friends out into the sunlight.

headlines 15

‘“He [Attorney General Barr] lied to Congress.  And if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime,’ Pelosi told reporters. ‘Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States.  Not the attorney general.’”

Apparently Mrs. Pelosi is an exception to that rule…, as she lies ALL of the time to Congress, to us, to basically anyone within earshot of her.

“Pelosi’s public comments came after she, according to Politico, told Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., during a private caucus meeting Thursday: ‘We saw [Barr] commit a crime when he answered your question.’”

“However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel that Barr’s summary was inaccurate.  Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had “misinterpreted” the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice.”

We all know it doesn’t matter to the democrats what anyone actually says…, the only thing that matters is what they want us to hear.

“NPR reporter refers to Barr summary in same terms as FDR describing attack on Pearl Harbor.”

By Anna Hopkins of Fox News

“The Department of Justice reporter for NPR [National Public Radio] referred to the date of Attorney General Barr’s summary of the Mueller report as ‘a date that will live … in infamy,’ a phrase many associate with President Franklin Roosevelt’s 1941 speech following the Pearl Harbor attack.”

headlines 10

“NPR’s Carrie Johnson made the comment during the NPR Politics podcast last Wednesday while discussing Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, during which he answered questions about the summary he gave of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”

NPR…, another arm of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

Aren’t you be a tad dramatic there Ms. Johnson?

“A day that will live in infamy?”

Really?

How about the day that people in our government were contemplating a coup against President Trump?  How about that day?

How about the day the DOJ and the FBI decided they were going to falsify testimony to the FISA court and spy on the Trump campaign?  How about that day?

How about the day that the FBI overstepped its bounds and declared Hillary did not break any laws, regarding obstructing justice by destroying her server and then deleting over 33,00 emails, because that was not her “intent.”  How about that day?

You’re pathetic, Carrie Johnson.  You’re just a tool to be used by the liberal propaganda machine. You’re no journalist, and you’re no reporter.

You’re a fool.

“Why are the House Democrats out to get Attorney General Barr?”

By Representative Andy Biggs for Fox News

“Democrats in Congress are so worried that the American people will find out what is NOT in the Mueller report that they will say and do almost anything. The report exposes their false assertions that President Trump cooperated with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election. They will resort to embarrassing stunts like bringing fast food chicken buckets into congressional hearings. And, they will attempt to destroy the reputation of Attorney General William Barr simply because he is the messenger who released the Mueller report to the public.”

headlines 13

“Consider that House Democrat leaders are claiming Barr lied about … what? They are upset because he wrote a memo iterating the major findings in the Mueller report. They castigated Barr for the few weeks it took for him to make legally required redactions in the Mueller report before he could publicly release the report. Turns out Barr’s initial summary was accurate. And, we have a special counsel report that is available for public viewing with very few redactions, proving that Democrats weren’t telling the truth for over two years.”

“The Democrats must also be troubled that the inspector general will soon be releasing his report regarding the findings of his investigation into the abuse of power, which includes obtaining secret warrants to spy on the Trump campaign under the Obama administration. They dare not let go of their attack on the president and anyone who works with him, knowing that the IG report will likely contain damaging revelations of the Democrat National Committee and the Clinton presidential campaign working with Russians to unleash the police apparatus under President Obama to spy on the Trump campaign for political purposes.”

headlines 5

The democrats are counting on the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” to do their part and downplay or ignore any potentially damaging evidence that turns up.

They, in turn, will just continue to deny, deny, deny, and attempt to discredit William Barr, and anyone else that may need to be silenced.

Republican Representative Andy Biggs represents the 5th Congressional District of Arizona.

“Dem state lawmaker records himself harassing pro-life woman outside Planned Parenthood”

By Caleb Parke of Fox News

“PA [Pennsylvania] State Representative Brian Sims recorded himself harassing a pro-life woman peacefully protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Sims’ Philadelphia district.”

headlines 12

“A Pennsylvania Democratic state representative went on an eight-minute rant, verbally harassing an elderly woman protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.”

“Brian Sims recorded a woman outside Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, which is in his district, telling her to pray at home, calling her an ‘old white lady’ and lecturing her about her Christian beliefs on the Periscope app.”

‘“Push back against Planned Parenthood protestors, PLEASE!’ Sims wrote on Twitter Thursday. ‘They prey on young women, they use white privilege, & shame. They’re racist, classist, bigots who NEED & DESERVE our righteous opposition. Push back, please!’”

So here we have another obvious example of double standards exhibited by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake new media.”

Here we have a politician no less, harassing an elderly citizen, who is doing everything within her rights as a citizen to do.

He brings her race into play, and then has the nerve to later call her a racist!

He also attacks her religion, which is okay to do, as long as it’s Christianity.  God forbid he would attack a Muslim!!!  Then we would really have a problem here!

The level of confusion exhibited by these clowns is just so impressive.

“Joy Behar slams ‘unpatriotic’ Trump, says GOP supporters should remove ‘those flag pins.’”

By Brian Flood for Fox News

‘“The View’ co-host Joy [less] Behar said on Monday that Republicans who support President Trump should take off ‘those flag pins’ because the president’s behavior regarding Russian meddling is ‘unpatriotic.’”

headlines 2

‘“It isn’t just that. Let’s talk about, you know, the fact that he met with Putin for 90 minutes… and never once brought up the fact that Russia, Russia interfered in our election,’ Behar said.

These libs just throw this stuff around like they know what they’re talking about.

How exactly did the Russians “interfere” with our elections?  They sure interfered far less than our own FBI and DOJ!  And I don’t hear her crying about James Comey or Loretta Lynch though!

That’s because Joy “less” Behar has no idea what she is talking about.  She is just a part of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

headlines 3

“Behar continued: ‘I said last week I don’t want to see any of those flag pins anymore on Republicans who don’t stand up against this guy for Russian meddling, and other things that he’s done. It seems as though he’s unpatriotic.’”

headlines 4

Joy “less” Behar is so far off base here, it’s hard to know how to respond.  So I guess I won’t.

“You can’t argue with crazy” is something my wife says all of the time.

And she’s right.

So I won’t.

“Behar has attacked Trump and his supporters on a regular basis, mocking everything from Mike Pence’s Christian faith to women who support Trump.  She immediately backtracked last September after saying ‘God forbid President Trump lives another 20 years.’”

What a peach.
