    In Depth News Stories

    August 11, 2022

    On Wednesday, NEWSWEEK ran an exclusive story saying the raid on Mar-A-Lago came following reports from an FBI confidential human source (CHS) –- that's official terminology for “mole,” “informant” and “spy” –- from inside Trump’s home. (NOTE: this sure looks to us like the sort of planned media "leak" the intel community is so practiced at, to further their own narrative.)  According to their report, the spy said Trump had classified documents at Mar-A-Lago and described where the documents were.
    Well, well. When it comes to Trump, this seems to be standard operating procedure for the FBI. Just as they spied on him before and during his presidency, they apparently continue to spy on him afterwards. Who knows if there really was a "mole," but I’m sure we don’t have to remind Trump and his staff that they’d better sweep the entire place for bugs, especially now that scores of FBI agents have spent hours picking through every room of the house and pawing through Melania’s closet. (And by the way, if the spy could tell them where these alleged documents were, why DID they go through every room of his house?)

    Also, since Trump and his family weren’t there during the search, and his attorneys weren’t allowed to witness what the FBI agents did, there’s no way Trump can prove they didn’t plant evidence. One encouraging bit of news: though household staff were told by the FBI to turn off the security cameras, they reportedly did not.

    Eric Trump says attorney Christina Bobb was forced to stand at the far end of the driveway during the raid. According to her, at first they weren’t going to show the warrant to her at all, saying they didn’t have to. (!)   Eric said they showed it “from about 10 feet away.” It was also partially sealed, according to Bobb, so she couldn’t read why the judge had granted it.

    Here’s more from Bobb:

    As the story goes, this whole thing started when the head of the National Archives, Obama appointee David Ferriero, saw Trump on TV on Inauguration Day leaving the White House and getting into the Marine One helicopter. Ferriero told the WASHINGTON POST in May, “I can remember watching the Trumps leaving the White House and getting off in the helicopter that day, and someone carrying a white banker box, and saying to myself, ‘What the hell’s in that box?’”

    He was so concerned, he said, that he called the ‘Justice’ Department and alerted them.

    That sounds very much in character for this strange man. As Jesse Watters reported last night, Ferriero is such a leftist, “he took it upon himself” to add a trigger warning to the Declaration of Independence at the Archives. You and I revere that sacred document and “hold these truths to be self-evident,” but his concern is apparently for the emotional well-being of people who have a problem with that.

    Ferriero said and did nothing to try to get back the many thousands of documents that Hillary had spirited away to her home. When President Obama left office, he took 30 MILLION documents away with him on trucks for his to-be-built presidential library in Chicago. Who ever gets to see those? He promised to have them digitized and available online, but reportedly, not a page has been processed. And President Biden’s vice presidential documents are locked away tight at the University of Delaware. Considering what might be in there, I wonder if they’ll ever see the light of day.

    A bit more insight into Ferriero: He said that January 6th was the worst day of his life (though he wasn’t there, of course). And when he retired in April of this year, he reportedly said to President Biden, “Just don’t hire a white male to replace me.” Good grief.

    On MSNBC and CNN, they made a huge point of not calling the raid on Trump’s home a “raid,” even though that’s exactly what it was: a raid on steroids, in fact, with 20 cars, lights flashing up and down the road, and 30+ armed FBI agents. They went through the house for 12 hours, not 9 as had earlier been reported. We’re still waiting to see the warrant and attached paperwork for this RAID. As far as we know at this writing, even Trump’s attorneys still don’t have a copy.

    We couldn’t help noticing that THE NEW YORK TIMES, in their Wednesday newsletter –- by the way, please read ours instead unless you want your head to explode –- also used the word “search” instead of “raid.”  Add "raid" to the list of words that have been redefined.

    We’ve told you a little about local Florida Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, the lower-level judge the FBI found to sign the warrant, notably his sudden jump from the Jeffrey Epstein prosecution to his defense team in 2008. Today, there’s more to tell, including the fact that before he signed this warrant, he’d made his distaste for Trump publicly known. In 2017, he said on Facebook: “[Georgia Congressman] John Lewis is the conscience of America. Donald Trump doesn’t have the moral stature to kiss John Lewis’s feet. Or, as Joseph Welch said to Joseph McCarthy, ‘At long last, have you left no sense of decency?’”

    I find it ironic that the people behaving most like Sen. Joseph McCarthy now are the ones Judge Reinhart helped by signing off on that warrant. When it comes to equality under the law and respect for people’s most basic rights, they have no sense of decency at all. And leftists have the nerve to say, ridiculously, that this raid shows “no one is above the law.” What it shows is that the FBI is above the law.

    For what it’s worth, Reinhart is also a leftist who enjoys posting “woke” videos such as one on “white privilege.” He sounds like just the sort of Trump-hating judge who would be tickled pink to sign a warrant like that. But he had no business doing it, especially since, as John Solomon reports, a mere six weeks before signing the warrant to raid Trump’s house, he recused himself from Trump’s lawsuit against Hillary and other Democrats over the Trump-Russia Hoax, apparently over the issue of impartiality.

    Just for grins, try going to Judge Reinhart's official bio page.

    Ha, “access denied.” But thanks to Jesse Watters for finding a video of Reinhart from 2014 (surprisingly, appearing on NEWMAX) defending then-IRS official Lois Lerner for her “lost” emails. “Incompetence doesn’t necessarily lead to criminality,” he said. He blamed the IRS's “antiquated computer system” to let her off the hook. “Barring some other smoking gun,” he saw nothing criminal. What he said sounds very much like Comey’s “no reasonable prosecutor” speech about Hillary. Think he’d give Trump, or any Trump supporter, a similar benefit of the doubt?

    Late-night TV shows celebrated the raid. Stephen Colbert said, “It may be hot outside but, in here, it’s Christmas, because last night, we all got the present we wanted. FBI agents raided Mar-A-Lago! [applause and cheers from audience] That’s the most beautiful sentence America’s ever produced,” he said.  He blew the FBI a big smackeroo kiss and laughed gleefully. (More proof that Trump Derangement Syndrome really is a brain-eating disease.)

    We reported yesterday that Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry was accosted by the FBI while traveling with his family and made to turn over his cell phone. Rep. Perry appeared on TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT with guest host Brian Kilmeade, to offer details. He said they wouldn’t tell him how they located him; he also didn’t get to talk with his attorney. The phone he had with him wasn’t his official-business phone, but his personal one; they took that.

    Later, his attorney was able to talk with someone at the ‘Justice’ Department and was told Perry isn’t a target of the investigation. “Now, think about that,” he said. “If I’m not a target, why do they come follow me, find me while I’m traveling with my family? They don’t come to my house, they don’t contact my attorney; why did they come and seize my cell phone, to image it, in that fashion? If they would’ve just...contacted my attorney, certainly we would’ve provided the information necessary as required by law, and that would’ve been the end of it. But they want this spectacle, they want this show, they want the intimidation.”

    He said he thinks all of this activity is linked –- that they’re “doing every single thing that they can” to knock Trump out of the running for 2024. He called the National Archives pretext “absurd,” because the President has the ultimate authority to declassify documents. “This is the DOJ run amuck.” Perry said to keep this in mind on Friday when Congress meets to (probably) approve a bill that funds 87,000 new IRS agents, who will target “average hard-working Americans who are just trying to make it through their days.”

    Charles Gasparino said that “unless they have some wicked smoking gun, this looks like one of the worst abuses of justice that we’ve seen in a long time...I wouldn’t want to be an FBI agent on this call,” he said. Well, maybe some of them will become whistleblowers.

    That thought us to John Solomon’s story: “Whistleblowers revealed widespread FBI misconduct ahead of Trump raid.” (Oh, no, he called it a RAID!) Read this report on agent Tim Thibault, and you’ll see why any “evidence” the FBI “produces” from Mar-A-Lago should not be believed.

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is demanding the DOJ release the order to raid Trump’s home. Though not usually a fan of impeachment, he says that in this case, it must be determined if AG Merrick Garland has used the power of his office for political purposes. And Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley is calling on Garland to resign now. “At the very least,” he tweeted, “Garland must resign or be impeached. The search warrant must be published. Christopher Wray must be removed. And the FBI reformed top to bottom.”

    And where is Wray? He went to Nebraska for an event, where he did not answer questions about the raid. He did express concern about “dangerous and deplorable” threats against federal agents. We don’t condone such threats, but why does he think they're receiving them?

    Very early Thursday morning, former naval intel officer and assistant secretary of state (under Colin Powell) Robert Charles told FOX NEWS that “this looks presumptively like a Fourth Amendment violation, right out of a textbook.” He said the raid was “utterly unnecessary,” that there was a subpoena served “about 12 weeks ago” and that Trump had “fully complied,” inviting anyone to his home who wanted to see more.

    (Editorial aside: This is consistent with the shocking detail in John Solomon’s must-read report…)

    Mr. Charles said his gut tells him that “this is a stain on our republic that will not be forgotten.” He also cited the recusal six weeks previously, saying this judge should not have signed that warrant. “Red lights should have been going off all over the FBI, the Department of ‘Justice,’ the White House,” he said, for mixing politics with justice.

    Charles was so eloquent and informative in this segment, we’ll see later today if it’s been posted anywhere and, if so, link to it so you can watch the whole thing.

    Finally, Adam Mill at AMERICAN GREATNESS asks –- and answers –- the question that should be on everyone's mind in “How Do We Get Rid Of The FBI?” Highly recommended reading, and fruit for further discussion here.

      This was a very interesting and fact filled article. I wonder if the raid this talks about was done to obtain any and all documents that related to the civil suit President Trump filed and is to be adjudicated in court? Could that be a valid reason for this to have taken place?

      When will all of this anarchy end? Most Americans know that the current government is and has destroyed everything that was good in America. We are so tired of all of the law breaking the dems are doing with NO consequences.

      "We don’t condone such threats, but why does he think they're receiving them?"

      TDS. Have you seen the stories on Fox News about an FBI agent speaking on CNN about how the right-wing extremists are making threats against the FBI and many liberal officials?

      On another topic, I remember a news clip from many months ago in which Nancy P. stated something to the effect that if the November elections aren't to her liking, she will nullify the election (presumably in order to stay in power). I don't think she has the authority to nullify a national election, does she? Even if she got the House to pass a bill to that effect, I can't imagine how they could succeed, even if all the 'rats (democrats) got behind her and Kamala broke the tie in the Senate. Joe would probably sign it... but the right would be in a major uproar. And the mainstream media would probably call it justified action. I hope this sort of thing doesn't happen, but I would not put it past the 'rats to do just that.

      Love your show, Mike! We watch ever Saturday!

      If his attorneys are worth their pay, they will be able to file a Harassment suit. Because a Warrant only covers Specific Areas and Specific Items, and any infringement or violation of that warrant gives cause -which no court can or will deny. But that's the trivial part, what really matters is that Now he has Tangible Proof that he's being Targeted by the Dems and that they are not beyond abusing their powers that be to forward their cause: The destruction of America. Which gives weight to the accusation of their stealing and implanting votes!

    McConnell will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November

    Mitch McConnell announced Wednesday that he will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November. He is the longest-serving party leader in US history. He did not say if this has anything to do with the criticism he’s received from conservatives or with his recent health issues that caused him to freeze up in mid-sentence a time or two. But while he will no longer be the GOP leader, he intends to continue serving in the Senate at least through the end of his current term in January 2027.

    And here’s a surprise: Robert Kennedy Jr. suggested that McConnell be replaced by Sen. Rand Paul. RFK Jr. tweeted, “It’s time to promote leaders in Washington, DC, who won’t kowtow to the military contractors or push us deeper into foreign conflicts. We need representation who will prioritize American wellness over all else. I believe Rand Paul would be an incredible successor. He’s shown great judgment and has the grit to put hardworking Americans first.”

    Get Out

    Law Professor William A. Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog has been watching the politicized lawfare against Trump and conservative businesses and organizations in New York, and the unprofessional threats and ugly gloating by Attorney General Letitia James about how she’s going to destroy Trump. He analyzed the situation in light of assurances by Gov. Hochul that if your business isn’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear. And he arrived at this conclusion: 

    “Get out of New York, if you can.” And if you can’t leave now, “Develop an exit plan before you need it.

    Pray for the Panhandle

    Please join me in prayers today for those in the path of the huge wildfires in the Texas Panhandle and neighboring Oklahoma. There are five wildfires that are causing school closures and evacuations, including the evacuation of a nuclear power plant. The largest of them, the Smokehouse Creek Fire, covers 800 square miles and is now the second-largest wildfire in state history.

    This is a link to live updates on the fires from the Weather Channel.

    No test?!?

    The White House announced Wednesday that President Biden is making an unannounced trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his yearly physical exam…which will NOT include a cognitive test. Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed questions about a cognitive test, saying Biden proves his cognitive abilities "every day [in] how he operates and how he thinks."  I’m confused, is that an argument for or against a cognitive test?

    Talk about a delicious irony

    One of the strongest arguments for overturning the ruinously large fine on Trump in his New York real estate fraud case is the Eighth Amendment protection against excessive fines. The Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in 2019 that that protection does apply to state courts. And one of the strongest arguments for Trump to cite came from liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who said:

    “The prohibition embodied in the Excessive Fines Clause carries forward protections found in sources from Magna Carta to the English Bill of Rights to state constitutions from the colonial era to the present day. Protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history for good reason: Such fines undermine other liberties. They can be used, e.g., to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies.”

    I might not have agreed with many of her rulings, but judging from this, there’s no doubt she was psychic.

    Public Service Announcement

    Public service announcement to anyone thinking of donating to Harvard or sending their kids there: The co-chair of Harvard’s anti-Semitism task force resigned Monday because she has no confidence that Harvard will implement any of the task force’s recommendations to stop Jew hatred on campus.

    Related: Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media has a news round-up illustrating how bedbug crazy these pro-Palestine dingbats are and how they “have more vocal cords than brains,” from calling Jerry Seinfeld a “genocide supporter” to literally setting themselves on fire.




    Private School For Me, But Not For Thee

    Two Democrat Governors, Roy Cooper (North Carolina) and Andy Beshear (Kentucky), co-wrote an op-ed for USA Today condemning Republican attempts to give low-income parents vouchers to send their kids to the schools of their choice. They painted this as a racist conspiracy to loot the budgets of our precious public school system and set our schools back for a generation (as if the COVID lockdowns and the focus on woke politics and LGBTQ activism hadn't already set public school students back a generation.) 

    One problem: Both Democrat Governors send their own kids to elite private schools. But that’s okay because, hey, they can afford it.


    The Best People

    President Trump was roundly condemned as a racist and a xenophobe for saying of illegal immigration that other countries were not sending us their best people. So just to clarify, here’s an example of one of those best people that Joe Biden let in.
