Comey “Friend”, Benjamin Wittes,
Outs Himself As Source for New
York Times “Comey Memo” Storyline…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 5/19/2017 9:17:42 AM

Long time CTH readers will note we extended well over a year of benefit-of-the-doubt to the motives of former FBI Director James Comey with regard to the severity of his politicized nature and disposition. Throughout the entire Clinton investigation we remained ambivalent to Comey’s motives. Indeed it wasn’t until after the Pulse nightclub terrorist attack when Comey obtusely noted the FBI had been contacted (prior to the attack) about the sketchy behavior of Omar Mateen by a ‘random concerned citizen’ -and our finding that the actual ‘citizen’ was the far more substantive St Lucie county sheriff Ken Mascara– that we

Comments:
Article goes on to talk about friend Benjamin Wittes, who admits he was one of the primary sources for the NYT’s story on the Comey memo. There is a lot of information here, linked to sources as needed. As always with this excellent site.

FTA:

The gist of Benjamin Wittes outline is that he interpreted his friend -the magnanimous harbinger of truth, justice and the American way- James Comey, as expressing a feeling of undue potential influence by horrible Trump that Comey did not feel with the more well regarded Obama. etc. etc. {insert pearl-clutching/couch-fainting violin music here}

Except there’s a problem.

Not only did FBI Director James Comey testify to congress that neither President Trump nor President Obama ever attempt interference; but there are earlier media reports which outlined President Obama’s administration specifically interfering with an investigative intention of FBI Director Comey (emphasis mine):


In summer 2016 Obama blocked any investigative intention of Director Comey regarding interference in our election by the Russians.

I was taken aback and furious when I first read of the appointment of a Special Prosecutor. Now I hope he uncovers the rat´s nest that the Commucrats did not want to be found. I want to hear them squeal like stuck pigs when their crimes are brought to light.

The Left´s Orgy of Condemnation of all things Trump is now entering the ´Morning After´ stage where the Revelers are faced with half empty beer cans with cigarette butts in them strewn about the house.

Trump, to his credit, marches on blissfully unaware of the low-life swamp dwellers recent victory party.

It may be that the ´Unaware´, ´Obtuse´, ´Single-Minded´ aspect of Trump (which both his supporters and his enemies find appalling) is exactly that quality which is needed to overcome the nasty, criminal, uppity onslaught from the Left.

I have always benefited from a legion of ´Guardian Angels´ who whisper: ´No,no,no--- Stop´ into my ear just before I jump over a cliff. But....Trump´s Guardian Angels hold a higher rank than mine and they let him run wild.....just enough.

Who will become the new Shakespeare and capture this fabulous struggle between ´The Powers that Be´ and the honest if simple soul of one good man ?

Let us not leave this to the craven denizens of Hollywood.

...and you can bet history is being re-written in favor of the bad guys every minute.

Biggest takeaway..Comey talks in waaaaay to much detail to others about what happens in an official setting. "Claims" Independence but is hyper cognizant about how he is perceived by Democrats...no mention of how he may be perceived by Republicans(or independents). I find it sommat interesting that Wittes career is working "In Law" though not a Lawyer...his wife was a major player at State under Clinton..."Transforming The Middle East", look at the transformations that took place under her expert guidance (2009-2012)

The more the media pour it on Trump the more he is Sterling J. Pureheart to me. Our prayers on President Trump´s behalf are never wasted and are being answered on a daily basis. Pray on.

One has to realize, definitively, that the people like Comey were in office so ling they felt all powerful. I´ve seen this attitude infect bureaucrats over and over. I served as a prison bureaucrat for 12 years. durin that time I worked under 7 different Wardens and three Corrections Dept. Secretaries. All but one Warden and one Secretary were fired for cause or ended up serving time in their own prisons. Most of the Wardens went down to abuse of prison funds, gross negligence, theft of State Property or down right fraud using convicts or staff. One Secretary was fired for lying to the legislature during the budget process, hiding excess overtime paid to his friends. He was later murdered by convicts in another prison he later worked for. And one was fired because he was caught picking up hookers (really disguised police officers working on a John Sting).

What happens to these highly paid bureaucrats? I call it the "God Syndrome". They get to thinking they are super wise, pals with all the right people, the "Good Old Boy" club takes care of their own, etc. They think they can get away with murder (and some tried that, too). It´s a lack of oversight, lazy political structure, flaws int he system, loop holes that no one in our government ever look into that are taken advantage of, over and over. And whne they get caught and punishment comes down on them, it is always everyone else´s fault. Gods do not fail! They only end up betrayed by cursed blasphemers.

Limbaugh on Obamacare Repeal Failure:

Posted By: earlybird- 7/18/2017 7:53:30     Post Reply
Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh ripped Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV) for stalling efforts in the GOP-controlled Senate to repeal Obamacare. By losing those three votes, a repeal is effort is out of reach for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and that according to Limbaugh showed McConnell was not in charge of the U.S. Senate. Instead, he said it was controlled by “three female leftists.” “Now we find out the Republican caucus in the Senate is infected with essentially leftist members,” Limbaugh said. “Collins, Murkowski, Capito

Dunkirk is a great movie but there aren’t enough “women” or “people of color” in it, according to a review in USA Today. The movie – with a cast including Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and former One Direction singer Harry Styles – has been given a slew of five-star reviews for its vivid, nail-biting depiction of the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in 1940. But though USA Today’s reviewer praised it too, he couldn’t resist giving it a little rap on the knuckles about its shameful lack of diversity and equality: The trio of timelines can be

House Speaker Paul Ryan’s failure to deliver on President Donald Trump’s agenda has sent his approval rating into a tailspin as nearly a majority of Americans disapprove of his job performance, a new Bloomberg National Poll shows. A whopping 48 percent—nearly a majority—view Ryan in a negative light, while just 36 percent view him in a positive light in the Bloomberg poll released Tuesday. The poll was conducted from July 8 to July 12 and represents a near mirror flip from Ryan’s standing back in December when 47 percent looked at him positively and 31 percent viewed him negatively. “It

Various senators deliver remarks following the collapse of their ability to reform and replace ObamaCare with any alternative. Beginning with the controlled opposition position of Rand Paul and continuing with Mitch McConnell and the Senate GOP leadership (at 15:00 of video).What these insufferable politicians well understand is that any substantive tax reform will necessarily also be compromised by the flawed dynamics inside ObamaCare. That will have a negative downstream impact on any hope for economic growth. However, they are not stupid – they know this – that is their unified UniParty goal.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration Tuesday announced new sanctions targeting Iran’s ballistic missile program and support for terrorists, citing the failure of the Iran nuclear deal to contribute to the stability of the Middle East as negotiators had hoped. The sanctions designate 18 entities and individuals supporting Iran’s ballistic missile program, Iran’s military, and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and an Iranian transnational criminal organization, the State Department said. "Iran’s other malign activities are serving to undercut whatever ´positive contributions´ to regional and international peace and security were intended to emerge from the (agreement)," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in

The giant iceberg known as A-68 that was produced in the Antarctic last week continues to drift seaward. All the latest satellite images indicate the gap between the 6,000-sq-km block and the floating Larsen C Ice Shelf from which it calved is widening. The particular image on this page was acquired by the Deimos-1 satellite. It is not easy getting pictures of the Antarctic at this time of year because of the long winter nights and because of cloud cover. Those spacecraft that have so far spied the berg have been relying on radar or on infrared sensors to pierce these difficulties.

President Trump predicted Tuesday morning that Republicans may wait for the federal insurance market to collapse and then work to broker a deal to rewrite the nation’s landmark health-care law. In a series of tweets, Trump blamed the demise of a months-long effort to rewrite the Affordable Care Act on Democrats “and a few Republicans,” but he suggested that the drive to overhaul the law was not completely over. “We were let down by all of the Democrats and a few Republicans. Most Republicans were loyal, terrific & worked really hard. We will return!” he tweeted. He added in a separate tweet:

The makeover comes as Subway´s sales have fallen for four straight years amid competition from places including Jimmy John´s and Firehouse Subs.

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) has been accused of “slut-shaming” female players after introducing a new dress code that forbids plunging necklines, leggings or revealing skirts on the course. Reactions to the move by golf’s governing body have been overwhelmingly against it, with Teen Vogue, the influential youth magazine, saying the dress code had set women “way back”. In an email sent around by LPGA player president Vicki Goetze-Ackerman on July 2, players were warned that they would face a fine of $1000 if they breached the new dress code which comes into action on July 17.

Pensions: Even in normal years, the annual Social Security and Medicare trustees´ reports typically get overlooked. This year is far from normal. But the reports should be top of mind for anyone who cares about retirement security. The Social Security report finds that the "trust fund" will run out of money in just 17 years. The news only gets worse from there. The program´s unfunded liability over the next 75 years is now $12.5 trillion, which is up from $11.4 trillion last year and $4.7 trillion a decade ago. In other words, Social Security´s long-term unfunded liability has increased by 166% in

Both sisters were undocumented immigrants. They were detained and are facing deportation.
