Senators Demand FBI Head Answer
Questions About Indictment of
Dinesh D´Souza

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/21/2014 8:01:46 PM

Four United States Senators have a written a letter to FBI director James Comey about the indictment of author and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza. Senators Charles Grassley, ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee are the four senators, all Republicans, to have signed the letter. The letter quotes Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz as saying, "I can´t help but think that [D´Souza´s] politics have something to do with it. ... It smacks of selective prosecution." And, the senators write, "To dispel this sort of public perception that Mr. D´Souza may have been targeted because

Good for them! They can expect the usual behavior from this corrupt, lawless regime. They will stonewall or furnish almost completely redacted "blackened" copies, if they respond at all.

Remember when then Vice President Al Gore raised $45,000 of obviously bundled money at the Tsi Lai Buddhist Temple, all attributed to the amazing generosity of the nuns in attendance? A Democratic bundler named Johnny Chung fled to China, Al Gore dismissed the incident as one governed by "no controlling legal authority," the FBI dropped the ball and the press yawned.

Dinesh D´Sousa is a tale of warning. Once the FCC invades the nation´s newsrooms, conservative reporters and editors had better get with the program, lest they be investigated for unpaid parking tickets and spitting on the sidewalk.

I´m very impressed by Alan Dershowitz. There aren´t a lot of Harvard Law professors who would state the obvious about this clearly biased prosecution, and I appreciate that. He´s an honest liberal - in other words, one of a kind.

I am very skeptical of Congressional inquiries and investigations. They are always very public but rarely effective. DC in general is a reeking putrid mass of liars and butt covering. It is almost impossible for anybody to get to the truth. Like everything else this will be quietly dropped in a few weeks and it will be back to business as usual.

Agree with #8. When have we gotten any real answers from this corrupt administration. Although I do not agree with the government´s indictment of Mr. D´Souza, maybe letting this play out in the courts would be effective. Make the government prove this is not selective prosecution. Others have done far worse and received a slap on the wrist or nothing at all. Seems to me that millions coming in from overseas donors to a presidential campaign would warrant a review. How about that Barack? If I remember correctly there were many donations that came in from the Middle East with odd amounts due to the currency exchange? Foreign donors, really? Hmmmmm. Now that should warrant investigation.

This abuse of power, especially by the FBI, seems so out of character with that organization. Actually it was my perception of the FBI that it was so good. However I forgot the J.Edgar Hoover years.

Good for these Senators in demanding answers. There is a big difference in plotting harm to the United States, as was done prior to 9/11/2001 by the Muslim hi-jackers, and someone publicly criticizing the current person in power. Was Michael Moore and his anti-Bush movie investigated?

We keep saying GOP in Congress needs to get their message out. They have limited ways of doing that. The LSM will not take notice of this letter, but Fox News has already had it as a topic of discussion on several shows. Dinesen D´Souza was on Kelly File last night.
Conservative blogs and news sites on the web are also reporting this action by Senators. The Lofos will never pay attention or care about these issues.

The FBI investigates - they do not prosecute.
This indictment was brought by a U.S. Attorney´s office or main Justice which is Holder´s crew. That´s who needs to be answering questions. Justice stonewalls and Congress is incapable or a real investigation. As with all the other scandals, an independent prosecutor is needed. Since the independent counsel law expired the only mechanism is for Holder to appoint an IC. Like that´s gona happen ! We are so screwed.

The most important thing to remember is that the FBI is under the jurisdiction of the Justice Dept, which is anything but! When you have a corrupt Att Gen getting his marching orders from those who have the same mentality that our dear leader has, we should not be surprised when these things happen.

I agree with the above poster that corruption is so pervasive in these government agencies, I dont see how we can get our confidence in the truth on anything anymore. Politics trump all anymore. Justice is no longer blind.

Anyone with a brain knows that this is a textbook example, by definition, of a bona fide political prosecution. D´Souza´s sharp exposure of the emperor without clothes rattled someone in the WHouse and it´s just too easy to use the handy FBI to fire back. I hope Dinesh kicks them all the way down the courthouse steps.
But --- having said that, I´ve become sick and tired of reading posts on this site and others, trashing ALL federal workers in the law enforcement agencies and others, so I have to say something about it. Get educated before you post. If you were to say the same thing about EVERYone who works for Verizon or FedEx, you´d be intellectually draggged off the comments column. The federal workforce at the field levels is populated with a great number of patriots (that´s right!!!) and hard-working professionals who detest what is happening in Washington just as much as you do. There is tons of abuse and corruption everywhere in Washington, but blame the voters who put this administration in charge not once, but twice. And blame the cowardly Congress that does and says nothing about it, save for a few voices. It is the Congress that has oversight over all the agencies, believe it or not. How easy it is to smear everyone at the FBI over the bad apples at the top of the pile who agree to do dirty work, most of whom are appointed (yes, appointed, not hired competitively). Get off your soapbox and start working to put good people into office in your community and let´s stop smearing the honest folks who daily must work under a hostile environment handed down from Washington. If you don´t like it, they do even less.

Broad brush generalizations always sweep in the innocent.

Blame too, the bureaucrats who are NOT whistleblowing on this stuff. There is a mechanism to stop it. But how many of those on the public payroll are afraid to say anything because they will lose their pension and paycheck.

Can´t impeach the commie-mentored and Alinsky educated man in the WH without riots.

Special investigators were invented by liberals to investigate GOP. Media sees that they get their way by whipping up the lo fo sheeple to demand for dems being investigated and yawn when GOP asks for equal protection under the law.

obama´s perfect storm and the democrat party´s legacy IMO. Will people soon forget? Yes.

Political prosecutions in such obvious manner as this is the work of people sure of media establishment help.

Comey is a snake. Colin Powell´s assistant leaked to press that Joe Wilson´s wife set up the Niger trip. Wilson was not working for CIA as claimed. Signed no confidentiality agreement
as is required. But wrote an op-ed to claim Bush lied.
Powell told Armitage to report himself. So when Fitzdoofus was appointed, the truth was known. Comey , ASst. AG expanded the scope of inquiry. And that´s how Scooter got charged.

Yesterday, on Lucianne, we introduced an idea for a new online research site, JOB TRACKER, that would take government liars, like Morell and Lois Lerner, show their old salaries, the double dipping retirement reward when they slide out of their current, in question job, and a description and salaries of the new cushy job they were given.

JOB TRACKER keeps America aware of the rewards of Washington lying.

We also include Government bureaucrat "stonewalls" to any public questioning (after all, stonewalling, like lying and taking the fifth, is just another clever federal way of DODGING THE TRUTH).

There is so much obfuscation and mafia-like dodging in Washington, that suggesting an online accessible research data base called JOB TRACKER,a would be very popular with all good Americans who are fed up with Washington, the press an TV´s rampant disease of "news lying" day and night. So many people who lie, Jay Carney, Diane Sawyer, Steve Pelley, any New York Times writer, Diane Feinstein, Commie Schumer, that anyone like can qualify to be on JOB TRACKER. And the JOB TRACKER personality who is caught in the most lies each year would receive the Barry Soetero Award!

Usually, a big shot like James Comey, unpleasantly finds his name in the news, and the subservient press and worshipping TV media ignore his plight, and his name disappears from the press as quickly as it first appeared.

With JOB TRACKER, he can´t disappear, no matter how artfully he dodges the truth, no matter how doggedly the truth is not revealed, or how he refuses to respond to all questions. He is now on The List

JOB TRACKER can be the support needed by Cruz, Paul and other outspoken patriots. It might also serve to wake up all the weak kneed RINO republicans, those many who refuse to go on the attack against communism. JOB TRACKER presents so many new opportunities of attack against lying corruption, that even
a few socialist democrats might see the opportunity to turn back to honest, once again.

I have worked with FBI staff on these types of public corruption cases and can attest that the FBI agents are hardworking, committed and in my experience non-partisan in their administration of the law. D´Souza is accused as I understand it not of bundling contributions, which is legal, but rather reimbursing contributors for the contributions they have made in their own names. This is money laundering and is illegal. These types of illegal contributions are very difficult to uncover through a routine review of campaign filings unless there is a pattern of let´s say janitors or secretaries or unemployed people making very high contributions. Then there might be a suspicion of reimbursed contributions. But, I don´t think that was the case in this instance. Anyone can review the filings of Wendy Long´s campaign, the campaign D´Souza was alleged to have aided in this manner on the FEC website.

Moreover, it is very, very difficult foran administrative agency to get the United States Attorneys to prosecute these cases. Anyone in the business knows this case has all the earmarks of a hit on Mr. D´Souza. BTW Lois Lerner used to be the General Counsel at the Federal Election Commission before becoming an IRS goon so she would know how to try to take down a target.

The questions of the 4 senators are terrific. But, every Republican senator should have signed that letter.

Why does anyone believe this will be a problem for Obama? They are probably in the Oval Office laughing. "They can kiss our behind. Don´t give them anything. What are they gonna do?". The media will cover for them and claim the Republicans are being political. Jimmy Fallen will poke fun and redicule the Rrpublicans a And the alphabet networks won´t cover it at all. And, as usual, the lofo voters will say duh and turn the channel to the Kardasians.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders

President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Colo. eminent domain case

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
