When Loretta Met Bill
Weekly Standard, by Editors

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/12/2017 5:02:13 AM

In many quarters of the American news media today, seasoned journalists seem incapable of pondering those parts of reality that don’t complement their political worldviews. It goes beyond “bias”—we’re all biased. This is negligence. Consider the trove of emails between FBI and Department of Justice officials published this week. The emails concern the June 27, 2016, meeting between former president Bill Clinton and then-attorney general Loretta Lynch. As readers may remember, Clinton paid an apparently impromptu visit to the attorney general aboard her DoJ plane while it was parked at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor airport. It was extremely improper for the two

Seems like Weekly Standard, home to many Never Trumpers, is trying to get its readers back.

There is nothing murky about the meeting. It is corruption at the highest levels of government. Comey is involved in this corruption up to his eyeballs. By the way, journalism is dead. It died a long time ago. All that is left is an embalmed corpse.

JUst imagine what we might know by now if 1/10 the effort put into hunting imaginary Russians had been put into investigating real dem collusion meetings. We KNOW these dem things happened but the media is spectacularly disinterested and even tries to "put them to bed" for the dems.

What is so sad is that when interested parties get back FOIA requests, they are so heavily ´redacted´ that you need to be a cryptographer to understand what is there...at a basic level, a FOIA request should be un-redacted (is that a word??)...

We need to see these documents without the redactions. It doesn´t involve national security but a bunch of media working out their talking points to try and "put the story to rest" . This is the event that led to Comey taking over the job of clearing Hillary which led in turn to the Comet firing and his leaked memos, which led in turn to the Comet friend Mueller appointed independent council. Hillary does the crime and so lets investigate and harass Trump for his whole presidency while he tries to deal with real problems such as North Korea and Iran left to him by the negligance of prior administrations.

They really didn´t want to know because if they did, it would hurt Hillary´s chances of winning the WH. It might also be a Pandora´s Box and open up all sorts of evil done by the Clinton´s. They didn´t want her to end up in jail. What I want to know is why the MSM supports Communists?

HUmmmm. Well, I don´t exactly recall the WS screaming "cover-up" and clamoring for DOJ to fess up, or for Comey to step down because he caved.

Most in the media were secretly regretful of how Hillary was handling herself, but few were asking the tough questions, until she lost.

We still wouldn´t be hearing about it, if it wasn´t for outside FOIA requests. Just because she lost, is no reason to allow the rule of law or our constitution to be ignored. It will happen again.

Everybody is missing the real story here, which is the reason for the redactions of material dealing with the duplicity and corruption of the Obama Department of JustUs, the knowledge and likely involvement of the Obama White House in the development and disseminination of the false, Benghazi-grade-lie "cover story," and the perfidy of the FBI leadership (Andrew "Clinton´s Cash" McCabe et al) and the perjury of then-FBI Director Jim "J.Edgar" Comey himself in this particular ""matter" (to coin a word). We all got accustomed to risible redactions during the Clinton and Obama eras -- that they now come from the Jeff Sessions Department of Justice should scare the bejeezus out of the Obama-Clinton Regime hacks. My hunch is that the redactions are not because Sessions wants to hide the truth or protect the bad guys and girls, but simply because he doesn´t want to disclose, at this time, the damning truth -- a/k/a "admissible evidence" and "proof beyond a reasonable doubt" -- about the crimes of his predecessors in office,

What makes me nervously curious about this is the continuing stonewalling for this information 8 months into the new Trump Administration. Why is the DOJ under Sessions still dragging their feet on releasing this information? What is the mechanism that makes this new DOJ guidance still redact important information, such as the Lynch DOJ giving direct guidance and talking pints to FBI and others within the agency about the meeting?

I thought this new Trump Admin was going to bust this whole thing wide open. Now, not so much. But, then again I was absolutely convinced once we gave the Republicans majorities in both the House and Senate and the White House, too- They would repeal Obamacare. Oh, well.

Sessions is part of the GOPe, and I wonder what his political role truly was during the Trump campaign. He quickly and needlessly recused himself from this Russia nonsense, and has not taken that back despite no showing of any reason to maintain that position - except to provide cover to his deputy Rosenstein and Mueller.

The Uniparty establishment has no interest in pursuing this whatever. It opens up the whole sleazy world they live in to public examination, which may lead to "reforms". The public is told time and again that its government officials are people of high integrity, who indeed swear they will uphold the laws and all that...and what have we here?

Elections have always been tawdry affairs. Careers of presidents have been built by machines, money and behind-the-curtain political dealers - from long before Clinton, Gore, Franken and Obama. That´s the essential Democrat defense for scamming Bernie, if indeed he wasn´t just a stalking horse gone unexpectedly popular. It´s their party to run as they see fit. From the inside it´s seen as part of the game.

Yes, there´s gambling in the casino, and much of it is rigged.

The first thing to be said about this trove is that for a year the FBI pretended it didn’t exist. The ACLJ’s initial open-records request came up with nothing: “No records responsive to your request were located,” the bureau said in a letter. But the same request to DoJ was answered with scores of emails, many of them to and from FBI officials. Why the initial stonewall from the FBI?

Could this “trove” have been among James Comey’s files - the “sensitive” ones he was said to have kept in his office rather than transferring them to the main DoJ files?

Hillary Clinton´s former campaign aides and other liberals who still lamenting the results of the 2016 election fired back at the New York Times on Monday for how the paper covered Clinton last year. Times reporter Glenn Thrush was bombarded by critics on Monday when he shared a news article on Twitter about the Secret Service running out of money to pay its staff due to President Trump and his family´s frequent traveling. "Trump´s gilded lifestyle is bankrupting the Secret Service," Thrush tweeted.

Let’s say you’re a prosecutor in Washington. You are investigating a husband and wife, naturalized Americans, who you believe have scammed a federal credit union out of nearly $300,000.

Trump Ends Obama’s ‘Water Bottle Ban’

The Trump administration is ending a policy implemented by former president Barack Obama that attempted to ban water bottles at national parks. The National Park Service announced last week it was ending the so-called Water Bottle Ban, which the Obama administration implemented in 2011 to "reduce our carbon footprint." "In its commitment to providing a safe and world-class visitor experience, the National Park Service is discontinuing Policy Memorandum 11-03, commonly referred to as the ‘Water Bottle Ban,´" the agency said in a statement. The National Park Service said the policy was counterproductive and only 23 out of 417 parks implemented the ban. "The 2011

In January 2012, President Barack Obama finalized his regulation banning employers from offering their staff health insurance unless it paid the entire cost of birth control. The penalty for providing coverage without birth control was set at $100 a day per worker — more than 15 times as much as the penalty for offering no coverage at all. This mandate was not part of the Obamacare law passed by Congress. It probably wouldn´t have passed if the controversial proviso had been included. In the time since, the mandate has been battered by litigation. A unanimous Supreme Court recently rebuffed the Obama administration´s

There´s a whiff of Weimar in the air. During the years of the Weimar Republic (1919-33), Germany was threatened by Communist revolutionaries and Nazi uprisings. Foreign Minister Walter Rathenau was assassinated, and violent street fighting was commonplace. Then Adolf Hitler took power in 1933. America is nowhere near that point. But many surely agree with The American Interest´s Jason Willick, who wrote Sunday that "this latest round of deadly political violence has" him "more afraid for" the United States than he has "ever been before."

Ten sailors are missing and five have been reported injured after the USS John S McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel on Monday morning, the Navy has said. The collision between the US guided-missile destroyer and merchant vessel Alnic MC was reported at 5.24am local time. The John McCain was underway east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, on its way to a routine port visit in Singapore. It is now sailing under its own power and heading to port, the Navy said. The crew is reportedly fighting flooding in two crew berthings and an area of the ship known as the 'shaft alley'.
