The Governor responds to two astute readers

February 26, 2019 |

Great point from reader Alan in response to my commentary on James Baker:

“In other words, Hillary Clinton and Obama were ok with sharing their privileged and confidential communications with the Russians, Chinese, North Koreans and Iranians –- but not with American conservatives who might invoke their Freedom of Information privileges. Hence, their 'friends' were their global comrades happy to tear America down in order to bring about international unity and their real 'enemies' were Republican conservatives seeking as patriots to preserve the distinct [attributes] of the American Republic.”

 

From the Gov:

Exactly right! And the people around them were so politicized, they must have seen it the same way. To them, the WORST enemy isn’t China or Russia –- it’s here in America, on the right. It’s us. Why, we want to be able to keep tabs on them, to know what they’re doing and what strings they’re pulling behind the scenes to abuse---I mean exercise, their power. What impudence! It must be stopped.

In their view, we’re a bunch of rubes who have no business knowing that the President sent a planeload of cash to Iran. We have no business knowing about the foreign influence likely obtained by donors to the Clinton Global Initiative. And we CERTAINLY have no business knowing what the FBI was doing to cover for Hillary and go after Donald Trump. So, in their minds, anything they do to cover it up is justified. Drag their feet forever on FOIA requests, create an investigation on a sitting President, fly planes under cover of night taking money to people who chant 'Death to America'...and set up a private email server that bypasses official reporting requirements but risks easy hacking of classified material by dangerous foreign entities. It was all for a good cause: to keep YOU AND ME in the dark and out of the way.

Most of the mainstream media “collude” with them by simply ignoring what Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, John Solomon, Sara A. Carter and a few others manage to uncover, which is probably just the tip of the iceberg. Nothing we have reported here on any of this has been shown to be wrong --- it just hasn’t reached a wider, mainstream audience, at least not yet. We’re working on that. And you can help, by passing along solid reporting and analysis from trusted sources.

This situation is why I love the joke Trump made about Russia looking for Hillary’s 33,000 emails. Leftists showed they have no sense of humor by taking him literally, but this was a very pointed public jab at Hillary, her destruction of subpoenaed documents, and the ease with which Russia (and other governments) could have hacked her server. I’ll bet those Ruskies do have every email she ever wrote –- and received –- as Secretary of State. Whether they do or not, the chance of that happening must have been fine with her, and apparently fine even with Obama, as long as we didn’t see them.

 

Reader Wallace sums it up well:

"Remember that President Obama knew nothing about classified information or the security system until he was elected president. He could not have received a security clearance under the traditional CARL (citizenship, associates, reliability, loyalty) guidelines. President Obama was just as guilty of violating security protocol as Secretary of State Clinton. Perhaps even worse...using a pseudonym instead of his own name or position. If Hillary Clinton was charged with any criminal activity, it would have been necessary to charge President Obama with the same or greater criminal activity. How do you charge the sitting President, the commander--in-chief, with a crime that typically involved an imprisonment of ten years?"

 

From the Gov:

I have such smart readers. Thanks, Wallace, for bringing up the security clearance process, specifically “CARL.” No, Obama would not have passed that, especially the "associates" part. While researching it, I came across this excerpt from Gary Aldrich’s book, UNLIMITED ACCESS, about how it was to work inside the Clinton White House and the security problems he encountered there. It’ll take you back. When the book came out, the Washington Post actually printed the first chapter, which makes great reading...

    The North Carolina Judge decision to over throw the will of the people , on Voter I.D. Law , must and should be reversed And jailed. Activist Judges are out of control and is evidence of our Nations two tier Justice System..We are officially a Third World Country.
    Is there knowone ? Is there not any sane person of Power and Position that can stand up and stop the Corrupt Democrats from destroying America ? This is what the open border corrupt Democrats , are all about. Increasing their voter base .
    If you think 2016 was a rigged election for HRC you’ve not seen anything yet !

    In reference to AOC and her idea that maybe we should not have children. I presume that SHE, HERSELF has been sterilized so she doesn't add to the problem, I certainly hope so! Perhaps she could make sure all her followers do the same. Yet, in order to have any workers or taxpayers how would that work? No children to grow up to be working, rebuilding all the buildings to be clean energy, etc., tax paying adults...hmmmm….so what's left? No people...voila, problem solved! We won't need power, food or cows that fart, planes, cars or her high speed rail. Wow, all that clean air and no one to breathe it!

    WHEN is the truth going to come out about the Democratic agenda??? and when are the real facts going to come out on this "Russian collusion"?? am I the only one tired of daily having to listen to what is being done to our President? Did you ever wonder (as I have) IF Clinton's are paying those who are testifying against President Trump? Mainly Cohen now with what he has on his mind for today.

    Didn't Hillary send Silicon Valley people to Russia to help bring their computers up to date with the latest software? I thought it took place the same year as Uranium One.

    Question. Are there any Christian Democrat leaders that can be contacted to implore them to do the right things for our country? Surely there are some that do not believe in the things that are happening.

    very simple, you treat ovomit like any other citizen. A treasonous act MUST be addressed and prosecuted. I know hilary thinks laws are for us normal folks. WRONG! it's time to lower the boom on her and ovomit. They are traitors, there is no other way to say it. We need to treat, every traitor like they are one. NO exception. I pray the GITMO trials are soon and there is justice. There won't be a whole lot of dems left, I have been hearing. Maybe that is the cleansing Jeanine is talking about that is past due.

    As for Justice Roberts he needs to choose what side he's on. The people or the deep state. There is no third choice. He needs to do his job which is to adjudicate. If he can't, then he needs to vacate his position and let someone else take it who will.

    The old saw “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander” seems only to apply if one has Democrat after one’s name. I think the worst thing about all of this is how the Dems will trash our country and our leaders when they are on foreign soil. Notwithstanding that is so unpatriotic, it is also rude and demeaning. The Dems, and and their posse, the media are so very critical of the President’s manners, but then they turn right around and cause us embarrassment across the world. There is another old saw “my Country, right or wrong, my Country. Most people want to keep their trash at home and clean it up internally. As I have seen much of the world, and I learned to read well by age seven, I know how fortunate we are to have this country as our home, warts and all. If I had the courage I would ask my African American friends this: “With all that has transpired, including slavery, would you prefer to be living in an African country? Some times better things come to those who wait as the result very bad things. This by no means excuses the institution of slavery, an abomination in any language, but I contend that you are living a vastly more comfortable life in th US than most of you would be living in your ancestral country at this time

    I was shocked, as you no doubt were, about the vote from the Democrats refusing to treat a baby born alive after an attempted abortion. I have not seen this addressed, but what happened to birthright citizenship? If a baby born in the US is an automatic citizen , does not this baby have all the rights and privileges of any other citizen? Who is advocating for this "citizen"? Can any one individual determine if another individual has the right to live? It sounds like there are some legal issues at stake for this "at risk" child. Also, why limit it to a failed abortion? If a child is born with anomalies, can a parent and doctor decide that the health of the mother would be impacted if this child lived? How far could this go?

    So glad you continue to bring us intelligent, informed comments to read and absorb. There is so much garbage being tossed around sometimes it is hard to break through the smell to dig up the treasure accidentally thrown away. God Bless the USA.

    I'm sure somewhere in all the "reporting" that obama, with his smug-you're so gullible, dumb, and I'm so smart-smirk, said well, he didn't know about any democrat/Russia collusion, any DNC/hilary manipulation of elections until, just like the rest of America, he read it in the papers. Sure--every single negative thing from his administration he said he didn't hear about until the rest of us. That's scary, that the President doesn't pay attention or didn't want to hear people say what he already knew. If he was in the dark as much as he said, he was not doing a very good job. I also watched him (with the same smug, your'e so stupid, I'm so smart, I have to talk to you like a kindergarten teacher expression) laughing as he was saying no way could Russia interfere with our elections. At the same time that his party was already trying to say Trump/Russia collusion. Maybe he was saying that to protect any investigation that would show that from the top (that would be him) on down, the democrats (DNC, hilary, the top of FBI and DOJ, etc etc etc) WERE meddling with elections and had ties with Russia (hilary and slick willie and Uranium One and $500,000 speech,) the things that HAVE come out. So, obama--the Russians could meddle, or the Russians could not---exactly which is it?

    Dollars to donuts every citizen entering the courtroom of this North Carolina "judge" has to show photo ID to get in. He sounds like some piece of work!

    In today’s newsletter you wrote about liberal activist Fed judges changing the will of voters or stopping the President from doing his job according to their own personal agendas. How can they have such power? Was this what the Founding Fathers had in mind?
    Thank you for keeping us informed
