AOC cries for the cameras

September 25, 2021

After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi caved to the Squad and stripped $1 billion in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system from a budget bill, the House on Thursday voted overwhelmingly to pass a bipartisan stand-alone bill to fund it.

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2021/09/23/aoc-starts-crying-as-the-lunatics-come-out-to-play-during-the-iron-dome-funding-vote-n447132

The usual small coterie of far-left anti-Semites opposed the bill, couching it as opposition to (as Rep. Rashida Tlaib put it) enabling and supporting “war crimes, human rights abuses and violence.” FYI: the Iron Dome is a purely defensive system that intercepts terrorist missiles fired by Hamas at Israeli civilians. I’m not sure how it’s a “war crime” to prevent terrorists from blowing up Jewish children.

In a remarkable sideshow to the vote, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proved once again that while her ideas on politics and economics may be stunningly stupid, she’s a genius at media manipulation. It was reported that she planned to vote “no” along with her fellow anti-Semitic radical colleagues, but when the time came, she voted “Present,” likely because she didn’t want that “no” on her record – especially not if she has to deal with a newly redrawn district that will contain more Jewish voters.

HOWEVER...AOC did treat us to a prime slice of hammy political theater. Check out the video of her after the bill passed, showing her “crying” and hugging a colleague as she dabs away her tears. Also note how she walked up next to another Representative who was speaking at the time, which “coincidentally” ensured that her theatrical tears were nationally-televised. Madonna couldn’t have done it better (to cite another great media manipulator who also reminds us of Evita Peron.)

But as the writer Bonchie at Redstate.com asks, WHY was she crying? Was that meant to show us how upset she is at all those alleged war crimes and human rights violations that Israel commits in defending itself against terrorists that want to wipe it off the face of the Earth? Because the only other explanations are (A.) she’s upset that Hamas missiles won’t be able to blow up Israeli children, or (B.) she’s upset about Congress spending a billion dollars. Which of those explanations seems less likely to you?

President Biden doesn’t want to get tough on illegal immigrants – in fact, the Administration has ordered an end to horseback Border Patrols, further reducing our already crippled ability to deal with the surge he’s caused, because of a fake story that they were whipping Haitian migrants (it was their leather reins flying.) I’m tempted to start a rumor that he signs his executive orders with a pen attached to a whip, so he’ll give up signing any more of those.

Biden also doesn’t want to get tough with our enemies, as he’s proven by rolling over for China and letting the Taliban take over Afghanistan (and here’s how trusting them to be a new, more “moderate” Taliban is working out.)

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/taliban-founder-says-strict-punishment-amputations-to-return-to-afghanistan/ar-AAOKK3k

But you have to give it to Biden and his people in one regard: they’re certainly tough on our own military members. After first accusing them of being white supremacists, they now want to impose court martials and dishonorable discharges that would revoke all military pensions and other benefits for troops who refuse to take the COVID vaccine. This is the kind of punishment usually reserved for deserters, spies and murderers.

https://www.westernjournal.com/biden-treat-troops-refuse-vax-deserters-spies-murderers/

They also want to remove a bipartisan amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that allows only honorable discharges for refusing the vaccines (apparently, being discharged isn’t enough; they also must be PUNISHED!!!) They even want to eliminate a provision allowing those who’ve already had COVID and have natural immunity to refuse the vaccine.

If this Administration could bring even a fraction of the aggressiveness to dealing with the Taliban, China or the Mexican cartels that it levels against our own troops, maybe it wouldn’t be the historically weak failure that it’s shaping up to be.

We recently reported on the fact that Jake Sullivan, one of the players in the anti-Trump “Russia Hoax” being investigated by John Durham, is now a member of the current administration, working as Biden’s national security adviser. In a new piece for REAL CLEAR INVESTIGATIONS, investigative reporter Paul Sperry looks deeper into Sullivan’s role in the hoax. Sperry’s sources tell him that this has grown into a full-blown conspiracy case.

Consider Sperry’s report your weekend reading assignment, one that focuses on Sullivan’s involvement in a “confidential project” within Hillary’s campaign to link Trump to the Kremlin “through dubious email-server records” provided to intel agencies. These so-called records must relate to those phony communication “pings” between Trump Tower and Alfa Bank.

Sullivan isn’t identified by name in Durham’s 27-page indictment of Sullivan, but his campaign position is provided, so we know it’s him.

There’s also more detail on what we reported concerning the use of university researchers to collect data for the Clinton campaign. They were working from a five-page document dubbed the “Trump Associates List” to compile a “digital dossier” on several Trump officials, including Gen. Mike Flynn, Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos and Carter Page. According to Sperry, “This effort exploited highly sensitive, nonpublic Internet data related to their personal email communications and web-browsing...” Are you getting sick yet?

Look, I know politics gets dirty. I’ve always said that no one should run for office who can’t stand the sight of his own blood. But this crosses the line into outright surveillance. Still, it's hard to say if this is a new low for Hillary, because she operates down there all the time and always has. The Clinton machine soils everything it touches. And even if Hillary slips away from the law, we will all know what she did, and what she is.

According to Sperry’s sources, Sullivan is in legal trouble over this because he lied about it to investigators. Apparently, Durham has emails between Sullivan and Perkins Coie attorney Marc Elias about the Alfa Bank scheme. Sullivan denied in congressional testimony that he knew anything about Fusion GPS and their involvement in the Alfa Bank opposition research. He said he didn’t know what the nature of their work was or who was funding it.

Sperry’s report is quite detailed. You’ll see how the Alfa Bank story was exploited long after the FBI had determined there was nothing to it. Sullivan and another anti-Trump hoaxer named Daniel Jones formed a nonprofit group called --- get ready --- the Democracy Integrity Project. I am not kidding. It raised $7 million or so, mostly from Silicon Valley Tech executives, and used it to hire computer researchers, as well as more "oppo" researchers and Christopher Steele (again) to try to “prove” the rumors in the Steele “dossier.” Then they would feed information to the media, leading Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee, and the FBI.

I think we’ll be hearing a lot more about Daniel Jones in the near future. For now, just read Sperry’s piece when you have some time, and see how disgusting politics can be when it’s in the service of Hillary Clinton.

Yesterday’s installment on the significance of Special Counsel John Durham’s 27-page indictment of Hillary attorney Michael Sussmann included insights from Kash Patel, lead investigator for Rep. Devin Nunes’ investigation into the “Russia Hoax.” As it happens, Thursday’s edition of the NEW YORK POST had a story relating to those very House Intelligence Committee transcripts Patel was assembling. It shows how different the hoaxers’ sworn testimony was from what they were saying publicly.

https://nypost.com/2020/05/11/obamas-top-brass-contradict-statements-about-collusion-under-oath/

For example, let’s take James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence. (The DNI’s job is to coordinate the huge and sticky web of government intel agencies.) We already knew that Clapper’s vow to tell the truth doesn’t mean much, as he has told some enormous whoppers, notably that the National Security Agency didn’t intercept Americans’ phone messages “wittingly.”

But as Emily Jacobs points out in her report for the NYP, Clapper stepped carefully during his testimony in July 2017 before the House Intel Committee, informing the committee that he “never saw any direct empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was plotting [or] conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election.”

What the hey?? As DNI, Clapper would have been privy to everything that was being gathered about Trump “colluding” with Russia. And he was saying hadn’t seen any direct evidence at all? Amazingly, yes, though he went on to try to make it sound as if there were SOME reason to suspect it.

“That’s not to say that there weren’t concerns about the evidence we were seeing...anecdotal evidence...[redacted],” he said. “But I do not recall any instance when I had direct evidence of the content of these meetings. It’s just the frequency and prevalence of them was of concern.”

Contrast this careful, noncommittal statement with what he had said a couple of months before to Chuck Todd on NBC’s MEET THE PRESS. On NBC, when he wasn’t under oath, he sensationalized quite a bit, using the cloak of “classification” to keep from having to be at all specific about any conversations but saying his “dashboard light was clearly on.”

A month after that, speaking with reporters on a trip to Australia, Clapper said the Russia investigation had far surpassed Watergate. “I think if you compare the two that Watergate pales, really, in my view, compared to what we’re confronting now,” he told them.

In light of what is said today in Durham’s indictment, we find Clapper’s comparison of Trump/Russia “collusion” to Watergate quite hilarious. If anything is reminiscent of Watergate, it’s the coordinated antics of these deep-state clowns working overtime to frame then-candidate Trump with fake “Russia” stories in fictional “dossiers” and surveillance warrants.

As Jacobs reports, Clapper was beating this dead horse as recently as February 2019, saying on CNN that “it was a possibility” that President Trump was a “Russian asset,” “whether witting or unwitting.”

Clapper’s not the only one who tread lightly in sworn testimony while stomping like Riverdance for the TV news cameras. Former deputy director of theMcCabe testified, “That’s correct.”

But he spoke differently in his role as CNN contributor (!) and in other TV appearances. In February 2019, in an interview on 60 MINUTES, McCabe dramatically described Trump as “the man who had just run for the presidency, and won the election for the presidency, and who might have done so with the aid of the government of Russia, our most formidable adversary on the world stage.” As he had already told the Intel Committee in December 2017 that he had no verification of any claims, he had to know that what he was saying to the TV audience was a huge fragrant pile of bull droppings, yet he told the TV audience it “troubled” him “greatly.”

The same kind of discrepancy is evident in the word-craft of Ben Rhodes, officially Obama’s deputy national security adviser but in practice his personal narrative writer. When asked under oath by the Intel Committee if he had any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, he said no. But in 2019, after then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified before Congress (remember that train wreck?), Rhodes tweeted, “Russia attacked our democracy. Trump campaign sought its help, had many contacts with Russians, lied about it and obstructed the investigation into it. Several Trump associates were convicted of crimes. Trump would’ve been indicted if he wasn’t the President. Not complicated.”

If anything isn’t complicated, it’s that Rhodes is good at using what little he has to work with to craft a story that really is based on nothing. No Trump associates were convicted of crimes that had anything to do with Russian collusion. “Contacts with Russians” is meaningless. Rhodes had seen no evidence of any of this, as he himself had testified under oath.

(By the way, if I hear the phrase “our democracy” one more time from some sanctimonious leftist, please forgive me in advance for the way I might respond. Leftists are perfectly willing to upend “our democracy” with strategies designed to fracture the election system, facilitate fraud and shut down transparency. They quite obviously think of it as THEIR democracy –- to be manipulated at will to keep THEM in control –- and they consistently show themselves to be unclear on the concept of a democratic republic. I digress.)

Jacobs also mentions former U.N. ambassador Samantha Power. When Power was asked under oath by the Intel Committee if she’d seen evidence of Russian interference, she said, “I am not in possession of anything –- I am not in possession and didn’t read or absorb information that came from out of the intelligence community.” But that didn’t stop her from tweeting in November of last year: “Every day Donald Trump finds new ways to compensate Vladimir Putin for his election interference. And every day, Putin gains additional incentive to interfere again on Trump’s behalf in 2020.”

She failed to provide examples, but that’s because this was totally made up, and it’s a lot easier and safer to generalize than offer specifics. (One could easily make the case that Trump was HARD on Russia.) Again, Power had testified that she didn’t read or even “absorb” information about this.

Finally, there’s Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice, whom we already knew can lie with ease, as she did repeatedly to cover for the State Department after the Benghazi attack. In 2017, Rice told House investigators that she’d seen no evidence Trump colluded with Russia to win in 2016. But in July 2018 on ABC’s THIS WEEK, she said it was “legitimate” to question whether Trump had been compromised by Russia because his decisions were in the service of Vladimir Putin. Good grief.

So you see how Trump’s adversaries could take essentially NOTHING –- no evidence whatsoever, as they testified under oath –- and whip it into a tale as tall as Trump Tower. But it was just full of froth. If only Durham could indict them all for lying on TV.

Russia hoaxers said one thing under oath, another under TV lights

Sources name names in Durham's conspiracy case

He's running

By Mike Huckabee

At 4 a.m. on Friday morning, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley tweeted the news that he has decided to run for reelection. Democrats were hoping that the 88-year-old Grassley would retire and create an open seat, but his tweet pointed out that he’s in great shape because he’s up at 4 a.m. and literally running six days a week, so he’s running for reelection. He said, “This election is about stopping socialism and saving freedom.” I couldn’t agree more.

"Voting With Their Feet"

By Mike Huckabee

I wrote this week about the exodus from public schools, and here’s more proof of that. In a new study called “Voting With Their Feet,” the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools reports that during the 2020-21 school year, privately-managed charter schools in 39 states saw an increase of 240,000 students. When you factor in other options such as homeschooling and private schools, public schools lost a total of over 1.4 million students.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/charter-schools-saw-enrollment-growth-as-1-4-million-students-left-public-schools-report_4012892.html

While some speculate that the loss was just due to the pandemic and parents will soon put their kids back into public schools, the NAPCS says that appears unlikely. In a statement, they said, “The pandemic forced families to rethink where and how education could be delivered to their children. And now that they know what’s available, why would they go back to an option that never really worked for them in the first place?”

9/22: Public schools are off track


God help us

By Mike Huckabee

People ask me almost daily if I think America will survive the divisive, leftist-driven assault on traditional American virtues of freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and free enterprise that once made our nation the envy of the world. I still have hope, but must admit that I’m believing more and more that the only hope is an intervention of God Himself in the form of a deep to the bone spiritual awakening. Just this week, we’ve seen multiple signs of a nation that has gone astray from its ideals and principles.

Reports that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley colluded with the Communist Chinese Military in the closing days of the Trump Presidency to assure them he would give them a head’s up should President Trump prepare to start a war and that he instructed his subordinates to ignore orders from the President unless they had been cleared by him are shocking, if true. I say “if true” because they come from a new book from Bob Woodward, who is known to fudge the truth and sometimes just flat-out make it up in order to push his book sales. But Milley has already proven to be an incompetent politically driven General by his failed leadership in the Afghanistan withdrawal and his bizarre testimony to Congress that the biggest threat to America is white rage, whatever that is even supposed to mean. Does he honestly believe that a minuscule number of guys waving Confederate battle flags and armed with deer rifles have a shot at defeating Milley’s military that has F-35’s, F-22’s, tanks, aircraft carriers, Blackhawk helicopters, fully-automatic weapons and even nuclear weapons? If Milley believes his forces are that weak, he really should resign. But if he went around the elected President and the civilian Commander in Chief to place himself above his chain of command, he shouldn’t be allowed to simply resign. He should be court-martialed for treason.

We also witnessed the heart-breaking and gut-wrenching testimony of female US Olympic gymnasts before the Senate who graphically testified as to the humiliating sexual assault by pedophile team doctor, Larry Nassar, who violated the girls trust as well as their bodies for years. We learned that their desperate attempts to get the US Olympic officials to intervene fell to deaf ears, but that even worse, the FBI was fully informed of the criminal acts of Nassar toward these minors and not only covered up the misdeeds, but lied to the girls and did absolutely nothing to stop the sadistic and deviant sexual behavior of the team doctor. As of now, one person at the FBI got fired, but no one has been yet to be charged with having lied about the case or failing to report the assaults to the local authorities. Basically, just as it was with FBI agents lying about President Trump colluding with Russia and using the power of the government to try and bring him down even after he was elected by the people to be President, the FBI and Dept of Justice seemed more concerned about protecting themselves than these young women. It’s beyond disgusting knowing that if you or I break the law, we might have a swarm of FBI agents all over our home at 5 in the morning, breaking in our door and pointing automatic weapons at us and frog-marching us to jail, but if the agents break the law, their higher-ups cover for them and at most let them retire with a pension and become analysts on CNN.

And this week, Nancy Pelosi ordered that we put up another fence around the US Capitol. You know—the same Nancy Pelosi who lives behind a wall but who says walls on the Southern border don’t work—that Nancy Pelosi put up a wall around the nation’s Capitol. Makes me wonder if it’s to keep bad people out like us out or to keep even WORSE people like her IN so they can’t hurt the country any more than they already have! Will our country survive? Only if God helps us…so I say, “God help us!”

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

Praise God, our portion here below!


Someone who might have been in the best position to know how the Russia Hoax was created --- aside from those who actually faked it themselves --- was Kash Patel, chief investigator for California Rep. Devin Nunes, then-chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Patel, a former DOJ national security prosecutor, headed Nunes’ small group they informally dubbed “Objective Medusa” to uncover the plot against Trump. It was Objective Medusa that discovered in October 2017 that the Steele “dossier” had been funded by the Clinton campaign.

As Patel explained to Dana Perino on FOX NEWS, he was also the staffer who took the deposition that is cited in Special Counsel John Durham’s indictment of Perkins Coie partner and attorney Michael Sussmann. Sussmann, he said, is the key figure who ties Hillary Clinton and her campaign to Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele “and the false information they fed to the FBI and the DOJ to spy on a presidential campaign.”

Patel sees this as a very-well laid out conspiracy charge that will expand to include other figures.

If you’ve read Lee Smith’s “THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History,” which has served as major reference material for us since it came out in 2019, you’re not surprised to hear Patel say this. Check out Chapter 9, “The Press Breaks,” in which Smith details the carefully set-up media explosion surrounding the phony “dossier.” The Alfa Bank story was key.

As Smith explains, on October 31, 2016 –- days before the election –- Franklin Foer, after receiving a manufactured story from Fusion GPS, wrote in SLATE that Russia-connected Alfa Bank’s computer servers were in contact with those of the Trump Organization. That article, along with what Steele had put in his “dossier,” tied Trump to Putin by way of Alfa Bank. And what did Hillary do, after her Fusion GPS operatives had planted this story? Why, put out a press release about it and retweet this lie: “Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.” The only thing “computer scientists” might have had to do with this story was to figure out how to fake those mysterious “pings.”

The Alfa Bank story was shown to be false in no time, but, as Smith details in his book, it didn’t really go away. It just became part of the lore, along with all the other fake stories that were never verified or had been debunked outright. Thank goodness Alfa Bank sued Steele (among others) for libel, because that forced Steele to go on record about his dicey sources and lack of any real verification.

We highly recommend the book, as it’s especially timely now. And it reads like a thriller. But as Patel says at the end, this effort still isn’t finished. “There’s no actual accountability yet,” he admits. “When we have that, then I’ll be satisfied.” Smith concludes by saying Hillary, with her fears of losing and of being exposed as the dirty politician she is, was the “center of gravity” for this phony operation, adding that if she had won in 2016, we never would have known about any of it.

But as Victoria Taft writes for PJ MEDIA, it’s all coming out, and we’ve just heard the clunk of another shoe dropping. (How many shoes will this centipede end up having?) The part of the Sussmann indictment that especially caught her attention was on Page 10. We haven’t discussed Page 10 yet, but that’s where Durham alleges that “Tech Executive 1,” who hoped to work in cybersecurity for the Clinton White House, used proprietary information to conjure up phony links between Trump and Alfa Bank. He got this information from his own companies, Unbelievably, he also used contracts with an American university to use their researchers to “search and analyze their holdings of public and non-public internet data for derogatory information on Trump” to “support an ‘inference’ and ‘narrative’ regarding Trump that would please certain VIPs.” VIP, I would point out, rhymes with “HRC.” And the narrative they were tasked with supporting was “Russia Russia Russia!”

This is just shocking shocking shocking.

As Taft explains, “The indictment illustrates how Tech Executive 1 used government connections, his companies, contracts with a U.S. university, Perkins Coie, Sussmann, and other political players to Get Trump.”

The indictment even mentions that the major players in this scheme discussed how to fake the computer links to show to the media and the FBI. (See, I was only half-kidding when I quipped about what the computer scientists were really for!)

Taft says that internet sleuths have already pretty much figured out who these major players were, including Tech Executive 1 and the university. We think we might be able to guess some of these as well but sure wouldn't want to be wrong. So we’ll wait for a few more shoes to drop from the centipede.

In the meantime, here’s something else to ponder about Sussmann. We’ve mentioned before that he was representing the DNC when they were supposedly “hacked by the Russians.” (NOTE: We don’t know for sure that it was a hack, as opposed to an internal leak, and there’s no proof that it was done by the Russians.) According to Technofog, writing on SUBSTACK, as soon as Sussmann was told by the DNC of the so-called hack, he contacted an old friend at CrowdStrike, Shawn Henry, who was also the former head of the FBI’s cyber division. CrowdStrike is the company that kept the servers when the DNC refused to turn them over to the FBI. Conveniently, Perkins Coie and CrowdStrike happened to be protected by attorney-client privilege.

According to the indictment, “Within the day, the CrowdStrike team concluded that the intruders were Russian government operatives.” Whew, that was fast. That is some efficiency right there. And I guess they stuck with that, even though Julian Assange insisted that the source for the DNC data he published in Wikileaks had not come from anyone working on behalf of any government, including Russia’s.

What really happened with the DNC servers is an enduring question that Sussmann likely could answer.

Sussmann was incredibly well-connected and seemed to know all the players. We’ll leave you with an excellent article from REAL CLEAR INVESTIGATIONS that explains how these scams are accomplished in DC: through a network of friends.
