Rod Rosenstein, just leave already

At this writing, deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has gone to the White House, reportedly expecting to be fired, though another report says he’s simply on his way to a previously scheduled committee meeting and that Trump is speaking at the UN General Assembly today (Monday).  To set the record straight, the President’s outstanding press secretary has just issued a statement saying Trump will meet with Rosenstein when he’s back in Washington on Thursday.  According to the statement, the two have already had “an extended conversation” at Rosenstein’s request to “discuss the recent news stories.”  An update says there was also a conversation with Chief Of Staff John Kelly.

 

Rosenstein deserves a good sacking for reasons we’ve discussed here, and the President is just the man with the guts to do it.  He’s been counseled, though, not to make this move, at least until after the midterms if at all, because it would be “politically explosive” and seen as “obstruction” (which it isn’t; the special counsel could still go on unimpeded).

 

We use the term “deep state” quite often to describe what is increasingly evident within our politicized federal bureaucracy, refusing to shy away from what some hesitate to say outright.  Especially in recent days, it’s been gratifying to see some legal experts and longtime observers, even from the other side of the aisle, state the obvious.

 

“People bristle when I sometimes adopt and use that term:  ‘deep state,’” said Mark Penn over the weekend in an op-ed for THE HILL.  “But as an outside observer, watching the unmasking of the actions of one official after another at the FBI, CIA and DOJ, I have come to accept that an unelected group of well-educated, experienced individuals running these departments became inebriated with their own power during the last election campaign and apparently came to believe they were on a mission to stop, defeat or remove President Trump and his associates for crimes they would find or, if necessary, manufacture.”

 

It should be mentioned that Mark Penn worked as a Democratic pollster and strategist for Bill Clinton.  How refreshing it is when political adversaries can set their partisanship aside and call ‘em as they see ‘em.  Penn has taken a lot of heat for this stance, to say the least, from the Democratic side.

 

We’ve been covering the stunning revelations here for many months, and they just keep coming.  What we’ve already learned is so bad, it’s easy to see why officials at the Justice Department/FBI have ignored subpoenas, slow-walked Freedom Of Information Act requests, and redacted documents for no good reason other than to cover their own hineys.

 

What the Justice Department has managed to do, by moving the pieces on the board before Trump was even in the game, is tie his hands legally, so that he takes tremendous risk doing what the Constitution says plain as day falls under his authority as President.  By fraudulently putting him under investigation for “obstruction” (obstruction of WHAT??), they intend to keep him from firing the very people who are using their positions to damage his presidency.

 

The investigation has metastasized so far that it seemingly can’t be contained.  Essentially anything the President says or does relative to the FBI/DOJ/special counsel can be interpreted as “obstruction.”  It doesn’t matter whether the charge would stand up in court; the Democrats definitely will use it in purely-political impeachment hearings if they take the House.  Hardly anything is beyond the scope, and yet we’re still trying to find out exactly how it all started.

 


Commentary continues below advertisement


Trump has even tapped the brakes on his call to declassify all the documents Congress is still waiting for –- key materials related to the Russia investigation –- out of concern that the perception might be one of obstruction and also in response to requests from Allies (I’m thinking the U.K. and Australia, since some of the major players in this intrigue are from those countries).  That argument can be made; still, only in the current climate of insanity would the call to RELEASE information be labeled OBSTRUCTION.

 

Mark Penn says what we’ve been observing for a long time:  that the President is “damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.”  The Democrats (and the media, but I repeat myself) will jump all over Trump if he fires Rosenstein, for whatever reason he gives.  They can’t wait –- in their minds, it would make the 2019 impeachment hearings so much meatier.  They’re trying to goad the President into it; that may be the reason, in fact, why Rosenstein’s so-called joke about wearing a wire and encouraging Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to depose him (hahaha, isn’t that funny?) was leaked to The New York Times.

 

In fact, Democrats are already condemning Trump before he’s lifted in a finger in response.  California Rep. Adam Schiff --- who will chair the House Intelligence Committee if Democrats take the House; think about that --- wrongly characterizes the prospect of Rosenstein’s firing, whether it happens now or after the midterms, as “a slow-moving Saturday Night Massacre.”

 

The most likely source for the NYT leak is Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page’s boss, who was fired for (yes) leaking and lying about it to FBI interrogators and who is now being investigated by a grand jury.  Penn points out that in his statement about this new leak, Rosenstein’s “denial” does not deny the discussion of wiring himself or others as a means to entrap or embarrass the President.  Obviously, they were talking about it –- it’s tempting to use the word “conspiring” –-  and the cracking of a few wry jokes would simply have served to add color to the discussion.

 

Incidentally, the Daily Beast is reporting that according to two sources “familiar with the events in question,” Lisa Page was present at that meeting and was under the impression Rosenstein was serious.

 

https://www.thedailybeast.com/rod-rosenstein-talk-of-taping-trump-was-considered-serious-by-lisa-page

 

The meeting took place soon after Trump’s firing of Comey, and it was just days later that Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel –- I see that as a real-world legal equivalent of their dream of wearing a wire to “get” Trump –- with the catalyst for that appointment being the firing of Comey that he himself had justified in writing. 

 

And he oversees the special counsel to this very day.  We are through the looking glass, friends.

 

This isn’t the first time Rosenstein has made an inappropriate and revealing remark and then said he was kidding.  Perhaps his next career phase –- after he is GONE from the DOJ –- should be in standup comedy; he does have a certain deadpan style about him, and being against Trump will only help him succeed on the late-night circuit.

 

I agree with Penn that this sort of behavior is evidence of supreme arrogance on the part of this group.  Even the ones who have been fired are being rewarded with TV contracts, speaking gigs and book deals.  They “convinced themselves that they would rescue our country from ourselves,” Penn says.  “They were on a mission, it turns out, not to save our country but to undo our democracy, and Rosenstein finally has been unmasked as having the attitudes and conflicts we all suspected.”    

 

Rosenstein seems to think he’s politically unaccountable to anyone.  He needs to go, but semi-Attorney General Sessions still won’t do it for reasons more mysterious than Pandora’s box.  Meanwhile, anyone in Congress or the Senate who wants to damage Trump is apparently fine with tearing up the Constitution if that’s what it takes.



So what’s a President to do?  If control of the House changes, we know exactly what’s going to happen.  Immediately, the lid will be clamped down tight on all investigations that touch on the FBI and DOJ’s handling of Hillary and Trump/Russia.  Mueller will move forward, pedal-to-the-metal.  Articles of impeachment, which no doubt already exist in carefully crafted draft mode, will be presented and the President will be impeached for being Donald Trump.

 

The one thing he could do is appoint a second special counsel, as a last resort, to continue the investigations that the Democrats plan to shut down.  Even if the Republicans win, this appears to be the only way to address the absurd conflicts of interest and misconduct at the DOJ and FBI.  According to a Harvard/CAPS poll, over 70 percent of Americans believe such a special counsel should be appointed.  It’s hard to get 70 percent of Americans to agree on anything, Mr. President.  Listen to them.

 

As I close, it’s being reported by The New York Times that Rosenstein “is planning to leave his job.”  We don’t yet know whether he expects to be fired or is planning to resign.  Either way, we know how it’ll be spun.  But at least he’ll finally be out.

 Kavanaugh 

It’s been a wild weekend in Washington, with more slimy accusations against Judge Brett Kanvanaugh surfacing like slugs after a heavy rainstorm.  This being a family-friendly newsletter, I’m not going to detail those allegations, which are escalating in salaciousness and ridiculousness by the minute, going from tragedy to farce in record time, with the latest coming from a man who has been accurately labeled by profession on Fox News as a “Sleazy Porn Lawyer.” Is this what former President Obama meant when he urged Americans to put Democrats back in power to “return to sanity”?

You can find these stories elsewhere, although the original of one, involving Kanvanaugh’s alleged behavior at another college party, can be found only in the New Yorker, where journalistic standards are sub-basement-low enough to run a story that the New York Times and other media outlets spent a week researching and passed on because they couldn’t find a single alleged witness who didn’t either claim to know nothing about it or deny that it ever happened. 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/nyt-accidentally-torpedoes-new-yorkers-ramirez-hit-piece-kavanaugh/

 

Some were friends of the accuser for years and say she never mentioned the alleged incident; others related that she admitted to them that she wasn’t clear on whether it happened at all or if the person who allegedly did it was Kavanaugh, and only recovered the memory after talking for six days to a Democratic lawyer.  In other words, we have now officially advanced from the Salem witch trials of the 1600s to the McMartin Preschool witch hunt of the 1980s.  “Progress!”

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/new-accusers-witnesses-already-rejecting-story/

 

These stories and their sources are shakier than a garage sale card table, and are such transparently political attempts to create a “pattern of abuse” narrative that they’re only undermining what little credibility the original accusation (and the Senate Democrats pushing it) had. (Warning: this link contains some offensive content that might turn your stomach, and I don’t just mean the 200,000th photo of Michael Avenetti on CNN). 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/democrats-horrified-avenatti-announcement-wrecks-entire-case/

 

Sen. Diane Feinstein’s latest demand that Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote be delayed until after an FBI investigation of even further-fetched allegations that somehow never surfaced during multiple previous FBI background checks suggests that that's what all this has been about from the get-go.  If the Democrats get their delay, the parade of unverifiable allegations will never cease, and it will establish forever that unsubstantiated slander is a winning political strategy.  If you don’t want to reward that, then don’t support it at the polls.  

For those who actually think the accused should have a right to defend himself, Judge Kavanaugh and his wife will give an exclusive interview to Martha McCallum on Fox News tonight.  Details are here:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/09/24/brett-kavanaugh-wife-ashley-speak-out-on-supreme-court-nomination-controversy-in-fox-news-exclusive.html

 

 

Rather than recount all the Kavanaugh allegations in repulsive and pornographic detail, let’s try this.  If our friends on the left are not complete hypocrites (stick with me, this is a hypothetical), then they must sincerely believe that women never lie on the subject of sexual abuse.  So as the accusations against Judge Kavanaugh escalate in absurdity by the minute -- and to any fair-minded person (if any still exist), are now undermining the credibility of the original allegation -- let’s look at what some prominent women have had to say about them:

On the allegation that she was present at a party where a drunken, teenage Kavanaugh groped the then-15-year-old Prof. Christine Blasey Ford, all four of the other people whom she claimed were present have now refuted the claim, including the only female on the list, Leland Ingham Keyser.  Her attorney issued this statement: “Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”  Incidentally, she is a longtime friend of Ford’s and the ex-wife of Democratic operative Bob Beckel, so hardly a conservative partisan. 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/not-single-named-witness-agrees-kavanaugh-accusers-story/

 

A longtime friend of the second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, had this to say about her claim:  “This is a woman I was best friends with. We shared intimate details of our lives. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn’t see it; I never heard of it happening.”

https://pjmedia.com/trending/four-reasons-the-new-accusations-against-kavanaugh-are-weaker-than-fords/

 And this one almost got buried in the tsunami of sleaze, but there was even an attempt to smear Kavanaugh for his efforts to help women get ahead by hiring female law clerks.  HuffPo, the Guardian and other leftist outlets claimed that Yale Law Prof. Amy Chua, who wrote an op-ed about what a great mentor Kavanaugh was, had advised female students that they had to “look like models” to be accepted by him. Prof. Chua issued a blistering statement that read in part: “Everything that is being said about the advice I give to students applying to Brett Kavanaugh — or any judge — is outrageous, 100% false, and the exact opposite of everything I have stood for and said for the last fifteen years.”  There’s more and a link to the full statement here:

https://www.westernjournal.com/yale-law-prof-says-reports-claiming-groomed-potential-kavanaugh-clerks-100-false/

 

Interestingly, on her Twitter feed, many liberals are savaging Prof. Chua as a liar for denying an unsubstantiated claim that she calls “outrageous” and “100% false.”  What happened to “believe every woman”?

So, my question to Democrats would be: which is it? Are we supposed to believe women only when they make accusations but not when they issue vociferous denials?  Or do women only lie about sexual issues when they make serious, credible, evidence-backed accusations against prominent Democrats such as Bill Clinton, Keith Ellison, et. al.?   

Or is this a case where the simplest solution to the mystery is the correct one: that the left is willing to pervert a long-overdue reckoning for real sexual predators if they can turn it into a cynical political weapon? 

 

A new GoFundMe campaign 

A GoFundMe campaign has been started to hire a private detective to dig into the personal backgrounds of journalists who help with the politics of personal destruction of conservatives.  Personally, I wish everyone would just grow up and stop acting like the torch-carrying mobs in old Frankenstein movies over someone disagreeing with them on political issues; and I am neither endorsing nor condemning this GoFundMe effort. I just have two observations: 

1.  It’s already up to nearly $6000 after just 15 hours with little publicity.  And that’s not because of deep pockets billionaires like George Soros and the Silicon Valley socialists.  It’s almost all in small donations of about $10 to $50 from Americans fed up with the left using personal attacks and sleazy innuendo to try to undo the results of a fair and legal election, all while accusing the other side of being a “danger to democracy.”

2.  I predict that if it’s legit and reaches a high enough amount of money for digging into reporters' college exploits, at least some liberal journalists might start thinking twice before running clearly partisan smear jobs on the early lives of conservatives as if they were credible.

 More important than politics

A sad reminder that some things are more important than politics: April Freeman, a Democratic candidate for Congress in Florida, died suddenly on Sunday night at 54.  No cause of death is yet known.  She was running against Republican State Sen. Greg Steube in a heavily Republican Central Florida district for the seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Tom Rooney.  Local Democratic officials will pick a replacement candidate, but that’s of minor concern.  I hope you will join me in offering sympathy, condolences and prayers for April Freeman’s husband, daughters and grandchildren.

We’re From The Government And We’re Here To Help You:  

A Florida animal rescuer who saved 17 cats and 10 dogs that had been abandoned to face Hurricane Florence was arrested for not having a permit for her emergency shelter.  The charges include 17 counts of practicing veterinary medicine without a license.  Her defenders say all the vets were closed due to the flooding, and she treated the animals with over-the-counter medicines you can buy at Dollar Tree.  The animals, for their own good, were seized and transferred to a shelter that will kill them if their owners don’t claim them or they don’t get adopted.

So tell me again, why do so many leftist animal lovers want the government to have more power?

    I am going to try and not be my "militant" negative self, but rather, speak with honest forthrightness. I have no faith that the Republicans have enough guts to bring Kavanaugh nomination to a vote before the mid-terms. I have even less faith that they will succeed in putting him on the SCOTUS. Perhaps some of them are as afraid of a yes vote as others are a no vote, as we approach the mid-terms. If Kavanaugh does not go in, the Repubs will NEVER put another justice on the SC. The Dems are vicious and the Reps are toothless.
    Yes, Rosenstein should go, either by force or shame, yet he will not. He should take his buddy, Jeff "out-of"-Sessions with him. He won't. And finally, nothing will ever happen to the "indiscretions" committed by the names of those we all know. Now, wasn't that much more positive!? I already feel better.

    I am disgusted with the lack of leadership by the Republican's in the Senate. Their allowance to let a publicity seeking lawyer to shut down and control the process of selecting a Supreme Court Justice is ridiculous, as well as the lack of courage to discipline the theatrics of phonies such as Fienstein. Our country is in bad shape when we have supposed leaders bowing down to one individual making claims that she refuses to prove that happened many years ago.

    The people who are publicly telling so many horrible lies about President Trump and other Republicans appear to be completely escaping accountability and punishment for telling these lies. There are laws against that, aren't there? Why is no one suing (at least some of) these liars for defamation? I expect these types of lies will continue and worsen until a few of these liars are made to pay for their bad behavior.

    Great commentary on the Rosenstein article but I believe there is a little more to it. I think McCabe or whoever leaked to the NYT did so with the intention and perhaps coordinated with the DNC, to goad Trump into firing Rosenstein before the election. This is the second attempt to unhinge Trump in 2 wks by the same outlet, the NYT. The first was the op-ed, which I believe was crafted to create mistrust between Trump and Pence. If Rosenstein resigns now, that's well and good but if Trump fires him now, it will become a media "scandal" which will be blasted by the media swinging the election to the Democrats. Then the investigations and prosecutions will come to a screeching halt as impeachment proceedings get underway. The election is little more than 40 days away. Trump can fire him on Wednesday after the election and not affect it.

    We'd be lost in a crazy world without you, Gov. Huckabee. I read this version of 2 Timothy 3:1-5 in a recent BCN article. How fitting for today's craziness and hatefulness. "But you need to be aware that in the final days the culture of society will become extremely fierce and difficult for the people of God. People will be self-centered lovers of themselves and obsessed with money. They will boast of great things as they strut around in their arrogant pride and mock all that is right. They will ignore their own families. They will be ungrateful and ungodly. They will become addicted to hateful and malicious slander. Slaves to their desires, they will be ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right. With brutal treachery, they will act without restraint, bigoted and wrapped in clouds of their conceit. They will find their delight in the pleasures of this world more than the pleasures of the loving God. They may pretend to have a respect for God, but in reality they want nothing to do with God's power. Stay away from people like these!" (2 Timothy 3:1-5, The Passion Translation)

    After listening today about the kangaroo court and whether or not rosenstein should be fired, I had the same comment that was expressed here. President Trump is going to be damned if he does, damned if he doesn't no matter what in every aspect of his life. They are getting really desperate these days. More people should call them out on their actions. Do they think this bs is going to, first of all, make any sense to rational people? I would imagine that many of their fellow democrats are shrinking under their desks in embarrassment. They need to rise up against their senior "leadership?" But I suppose they would face major retaliation. I'm pretty sure these people speaking out to believe the accusers without any proof (and with many denials of many people.) Where were they when bill clinton's accusers came forth? Where is outrage about Eliston among others?

    We didn't party all that much during high school, but I do remember lots of things going on at college, even back in the 70's. And it continues today. I do think, if they continue with this nonsense, there should be an investigation of all current congress person of their lives high school to present. It seems that the payout of taxpayer's money of $17M hush money would indicate that some currently serving should be removed. Don't forget to investigate current Supreme Court Justices. Except Clarence Thomas--they already had their go at him.

    And, for those who think these women should be believed without proof, perhaps they didn't hear of or choose to forget about the one who ruined the lives of a lacrosse team with her lies. And men who, after having served years in prison are released when the woman admitted she lied. There absolutely are women who are victims of rape and sexual harassment. There are are also women who jump on the bandwagon because it's the trend of the day--and every lie is detrimental to the real victims getting justice.

    PS...my assessment of the letter feinstein doesn't want anyone to see? If there was anything there that would besmirch Judge Kavanaugh, not only would she release it to the hearing, she would have had it published in every newspaper--without redaction, the minute she received the letter.

    Comments on the "deep state". Some of us that are a little older may remember another deep state during the 50's. There was great fear at the time of communist buildup in America. There was a Senator from Wisconsin by the name of Joe McCarthy that took it upon himself to expose all communist sympathizers and eradicate them. Senator McCarthy ruined many peoples lives in his quest, needless to say perhaps he went a little overboard. Senator McCarthy would probably say that some of the people destroyer were just collateral damage, a term often used in combat. However, there was no appreciable buildup of communism in America. In my opinion the deep state is just as dangerous as the buildup of communism at that time. The deep state is trying to undermine the formally elected Trump administration. President Trump has made America better for us all and all the while had to fight the deep state and the democratic obstructionist. It's not healthy for America to have an official government and a deep state government which is doing everything it can to undermine the official administration. We need a McCarthy like effort, with appropriate oversight to minimize collateral damage, to expose all deep state operatives, their funding (and you may find Soros involvement), and identify all crimes against America and the Trump/Republican Administration, then prosecute them to the limits of the law. Senator McCarthy put fear in the communist sympathizers, until this is done to the deep state operatives, they will continue their devious activities, building confusion and untrust in the American citizenry. The deep state needs to be stopped and many of its operatives prosecuted.

When they did it to Sara it was beyond comprehension and now Cruz! That certainly would be a motivator to make ME want to approve Kav (regardless if he proved to be a mass murder, just saying!) Have these leftist no sin? Perfect, better than God! They have convicted and tried Kav already! The deep state is made up of individuals that have always had a state or federal pay check, worked at a job where someone else took the risks ,or a free handout . They are and never where entrepreneurs and had to use their brains to survive! Complete drags on society!

    All of this activity, which is accurately described as "deep state" makes me think of the other governments around the world. Uganda, Taiwan, Ukraine, Georgia and even Britain have become rife with idiotic players which control life and death in their countries. Our own Congress is turning our government into the equivalent of that from a third world country. (sorry Britain, it pains me to say that)

    The big difference we have between them and is was laid out in a very important document written long ago. Here's an important piece of it:

    "...when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

    Lest we forget.

    I agree with you and 70% of the American people. President Trump should assign a special counsel of his own to investigate the investigators. NOW would be a very good time to announce the proceedings and President Trump is just the guy to do it! If there ever was a time when our Republic should stand, fight for our roots, and display the "due process of law" this is it! We spoke at the polls, now we want our day in court!

    Just a quick question. Would a Convention of States be able to intervene in the current insanity in the Kavanaugh hearings, or in the deep state chicanery going on in the DOJ, FBI, and CIA? Maybe we should be promoting that as a way to drain the swamp and take the heat off President Trump, whom the left would attack if he tried to do it all by presidential order. We know Congress will never make it happen. Thanks for your column. I not only trust your information and your point of view, but I enjoy your humor and style. God bless you!

    I can't repeat this enough - the biased internet media sites - Google, Twitter, Yahoo, etc have blocked conservatives like myself if we support Trump and GOP. To outsiders they may not notice that the media supports all Dems - and it may be mistakenly be interpreted that Trump's support has dwindled. The media only trashes him and we can't support him - we are silenced!
    Why doesn't GOP put out it's own website whereby they can print truths about their party -- and people can be educated to such. If we can't speak back against them - America may listen to the only info they get - slams, scams & lies. The President's Twitter is the only truthful input I could read - and now that is gone -- Twitter has reduced the conservatives from finding out what the president is really saying.

    A second special counsel sounds like an idea to be explored. Thanks for your untangling of the mess.
