The External Roots of Spygate

Original Article

Over the past three years, the MSM has done a thorough job brainwashing its captive audience into believing that Putin preferred, supported, or even colluded with Trump in the 2016 elections. (snip) The ideation of a Putin-Trump association and of Russian interference on Trump’s behalf came from Western Europe. People of Germany, Britain, and other EU states were dissatisfied with policies robbing them of their sovereignty. European politicians wanted to crush dissent, and Russia and Putin became a convenient boogeyman. The government of Angela Merkel blamed Russia for public protests.

This article is mostly BS. Spying and collusion with Russia is solely a Death Party gig. How much money did the Butcher get from Russia? How much for Barry, Lurch, Lynch, Comey, Brennan and the rest of that communist cabal?

The Left's hypocrisy knows no bounds. Now it is just plain funny. The Left's hysteria over Trump's answer to Clinton pit bull (miniature poodle) Stephanopoulos asked him if he would listen to and evaluate opposition research from a foreign national would be comical if it were not so blatantly hypocritical. Trump is right that all politicians seek information on opponents, no matter where it comes from. They often pay for it. In Hillary's case, she actually commissioned it, paid for it, and did not care that it was made up out of whole cloth. The Steele dossier was phonied up by a foreign national

Yesterday saw the president (salary: over half a million dollars) of Oberlin College (with an endowment of $887.4 million) plead poverty to a jury in Lorrain County, Ohio (median household income: $54,932), urging them not add punitive damages of up to $22 million to the $11 million already awarded to Gibson’s Bakery.

John Dean, notorious from the Watergate scandals of the Nixon Administration, blew a hole in the bottom of the Democrats’ boat in his much-anticipated testimony on June 10, 2019. It happened around time 6:11 PM EST after about four hours of John Dean's testimony alongside a panel of gushingly, enthusiastically left-wing former prosecutors. In response to a softball "How do you feel?" therapeutic question by a Democratic Congressman, John Dean detonated the entire charade sky high.

Lack of respect for juries can be very, very costly. The landmark jury verdict awarding $11 million (with the possibility of triple damages to come) to members of the Gibson Family, owners of a 5-generation bakery boycotted and slandered by students with the encouragement of a College official, is looking to be as much about social class as it is about the excesses social justice warriors (SJWs).

President Trump announced a deal with Mexico to help stave the border security crisis, and leaders of both countries celebrated. After all, both countries said they were the winners in the newly signed migration deal. There were losers, of course - Mexico's infamous human smuggling cartels, and far left activists who shake down migrants, both of whom get curbed in the deal. But none made fools of themselves the way the biggest losers here, the Democrats (and their media allies) managed to do.

The first step toward solving social ills is to understand people. Our founders well understood that people are not inherently good, but they are redeemable. That is the true condition of human nature. The sooner that is recognized, the better society will become.

The insurer that covers Oberlin College for liability, Lexington Insurance Company, filed documents with court last month indicating that its umbrella liability policy would not cover costs of any judgment for the plaintiffs. That means that if, after the appeals process has run its course, the plaintiffs move to collect the $11 million a jury just awarded them (plus whatever punitive damages – up to $22 more – are awarded next week), Lexington likely won’t pay and Oberlin would have to sue for reimbursement. (snip) Oberlin has a mess on its hands and its trustees must begin planning for possible need to cough up millions of dollars.

As an Irishman, I’m embarrassed at the treatment of the President of the United States on his recent visit to Ireland. His shabby reception in Ireland contrasts sharply with the red carpet treatment in London. Media reports that the Leo Varadkar (the Irish Prime Minister/Taoiseach) refused to meet at the Trump resort at Doonbeg. The hostile media is having a field day with this.

Oberlin College, which has become one of the most politically correct campuses in the United States, has just discovered that allowing and encouraging social justice warriors to damage their perceived enemies can be very expensive. A local jury has just awarded Gibson’s Bakery, a five-generation institution in Oberlin, Ohio, $11 million in its lawsuit against the college for throwing its support behind a student-led boycott over false charges of racism. This amount could triple to $33 million dollars if punitive damages – intended to punish and disincentivize egregious behavior -- are awarded in proceedings Tuesday next week.

Now that he apparently has made a deal to speak with US investigators about his “dossier” (purchased with DNC and Hillary campaign monies) that was used to mislead a FISA Court into allowing domestic spying on US citizens, former British spy Christopher Steele is letting a buddy at the New York Times know that he is nervous about becoming a fall-guy. (snip) For his own sake, I hope Steele has some real dirt to offer on the higher-ups in MI-6, the CIA, and the FBI. I am pretty sure that US Attorney Durham is more interested in them than he is in Steele.

Including a citizenship question in the U.S. Census would be a horror as unspeakable as the Dred Scott decision or the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) told a House hearing Wednesday. “Citizenship” is “an acknowledge of power” and comes from being “a person in our democracy,” and not from a Supreme Court decision, Ocasio-Cortez said, alluding to the high court’s anticipated ruling on the constitutionality of adding a citizenship question to the Census: “Unspeakable horrors have been executed by the United States in the name of citizenship. In the name of determining who is a citizen.

US President Donald Trump has caused a splash on Twitter after he tweeted to say he had met the "Prince of Whales". Mr Trump made the mistake, intending to refer to Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, in response to articles following an ABC news interview. He said he would listen if a foreign government gave damaging information about a political rival without necessarily reporting it to the FBI. In the tweet, he accused media reporting the statement of "fake news". (tweet) Mr Trump subsequently deleted his tweet and corrected his error. Referring to his recent UK state visit, the president initially wrote on Twitter: "I meet and talk to 'foreign governments' every day.

The series of town halls that Fox News is conducting for Democrat presidential candidates who take advantage of its generous offer of air time have been fairly interesting. Faced with moderators who do nor hug them the way Rachel Maddow did in a 2016 presidential debate, the strong ones have an opportunity to demonstrate their skills while the weak ones fall back on canned answers of dubious relevance to the questions asked. I was interested in seeing what Julian Castro had to offer yesterday at the town hall in Tempe, Arizona, where, we were told it was well over a hundred degrees outside.

Less than 24 hours after a $44 million settlement against the college in favor of Gibson’s Bakery, Oberlin College President Carmen Twillie Ambar assured alumni in an email that the punitive damage award will change. In the letter sent to alumni that was obtained by the Chronicle-Telegram, Ambar writes: “This is not the final outcome. This is, in fact, just one step along the way of what may turn out to be a lengthy and complex legal process... It will not distract, deter or materially harm our education mission, for today’s students or for generations to come.”

Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar says she would support impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump "beginning now." The Minnesota senator's comment to CNN Friday followed Trump's statement this week that he'd take information from a foreign power that offered dirt on an opponent. Klobuchar says "it's illegal" to take something of value from a foreign country to use in a campaign. She says Trump is "sending out signals" like he did in 2016, when he publicly urged Russia to find and publish Hillary Clinton's emails.
