A highly anticipated Justice Department inspector general report meant to 'investigate the investigators' behind the lengthy Russia probe will not conclude political bias drove decisions made by former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI lawyer Peter Strzok. But IG Michael Horowitz has determined that some FBI officials were sloppy and unprofessional, The New York Times reported on Friday, giving President Donald Trump a hook to continue claiming ideologically slanted 'deep state' enemies twisted the law to secure wiretap orders against his onetime campaign adviser Carter Page.

The FISA warrants have Comey, McCabe and Rosenstein's signatures. The man that signs the document is responsible for what is in it. That is the reason you are the head guy. That is the reason you are required to sign. That is why you are paid the big bucks.

If the FBI director and others knew at the time that the dossier was opposition research paid for by the Clinton campaign and did not reveal that fact to the FISA judges that is not "sloppy", that is obstruction of justice. If Horowitz or people in DOJ are now leaking material to the press that is also a crime. It doesn't disprove anything about the existence of the deep state, it just proves its even deeper than we imagined possible.

Here they go trying to minimize there guilt. If Horowitz who can't do a damn thing about any crime is just wasting our time, then the you know what will hit the fan. After 3 years he's going to tell us nobody did nuttin? Sorry Mr. Horowitz we Deplorables ain't stupid and it would be a serious misjudgement to pretend that its no big deal. If he should justify or ignore all the criminal antics that we see with our own eyes then OMG DC is going to get crowded with Militia.

The media is doing what it does best, muddying the waters and it will be effective. I don’t believe the report will be a bombshell or anything near it because I have zero faith that our government can police itself. Calls to wait and see are commendable, I suppose, but pragmatically naive. If we have individuals at the very highest levels in our government who we know have committed serious crimes, the worst of which is sedition, only a fool would believe the underlings who said nothing and did nothing would now do something about it now. They know the score more than anyone and know just what the Deep stare is capable of and I doubt they are anxious to put themselves and their families out there. If these people can plan, plot and scheme right inside the White House to unseat a duly elected President do you honestly believe that they would not protect themselves regardless of what that may entail? Please, courage needed to speak out is hard to find when you are dealing with this kind of power. This two week hub-bub of speculation has been part of the strategy. It indicates that the Deep State still has the power to set the narrative and work out the best scenario for themselves. The media and Deep State are one. If there was real bite to this report, it would have been dropped without fanfare. This is just another act in the Kabuki Theater that serves as justice in The Swamp. It is all one big production to dupe the American people.

In two weeks, we will have all been through Thanksgiving dinner, where a 'wait and see' approach will prevail for most. Where a 'if they're really guilty they should suffer consequences' approach will keep relative Peace within families. In two weeks all the spin and excuses will be used up, and the event will be seen for what it is. All that will remain is the act of our Government spying on private citizens. I think some big names are about to go down. It's all about timing.

OBERLIN — Student groups at Oberlin College recently put a memorial commemorating Bahaa Abu el-Atta, a senior commander from the Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad, after he and his wife were killed in an attack by Israel Defense Forces. According to reporting from The Associated Press, Israel targeted and killed the leader in a rocket strike on Nov. 12. It’s reported that Abu el-Atta died with his wife while they slept in their home in eastern Gaza. The strike then set off the heaviest fighting in months between the militant group and Israel.

Dallas patriots Kevin Freeman, host of the Economic War Room on BlazeTV and Russ Ramsland, a voter fraud and election expert, have released detailed findings from a cyber/forensic investigation into election fraud utilizing compromised voting machines in 2018 (and quite probably, in the governor’s race in 2019 in Kentucky). In summary terms, Freeman’s “Episode #70” reveals that (1) security protections in voting machines were disabled, (2) penetration and manipulation of actual vote tabulations was and is possible, and (3) evidence already exists that votes were surreptitiously, electronically manipulated to change election results.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has found evidence that an FBI lawyer manipulated a key investigative document related to the FBI's secretive surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser--enough to change the substantive meaning of the document, according to multiple reports. The show-stopping development comes as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News that Horowitz's comprehensive report on allegations of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant abuse against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page will be released on Dec. 9. "That's locked," Graham said.

Early Monday morning, he tweeted that another four years of Donald Trump would be more dangerous for free markets than four years of Elizabeth Warren as president. Not that Warren is anywhere near his first pick... "I very much prefer Biden or Buttigieg or Bloomberg or Klobuchar to Warren. But the idea that one term of Warren would pose anything like the threat of a second term for Trump to the basic norms and institutions of our liberal democracy, including to free markets, is laughable," Kristol insisted.

Next year’s Tokyo Summer Olympics may spell the swift death of the transgender movement as a dominant politically-correct touchstone. Biological men, self-identifying as women, are poised to make a clean sweep of the Women’s Olympics, triggering a very public debate on this third-rail subject. That firestorm, pitting pro-women feminists against extreme pro-transgender progressives, will begin July 24th, just as the Presidential sweepstakes moves into its sprint to the finish line.

On July 25, 2019, President Donald Trump picked up the phone in the White House residence and attempted to shake down a foreign leader. Trump’s language was elliptical and soft, not direct and threatening, but his intentions were clear: He wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to “do us a favor.” That was Trump’s entree to his improper, indecent requests that Zelenskiy’s government undertake two investigations that would benefit Trump politically. Trump didn’t explain his motives, which of course were self-serving. First, he asked Zelenskiy to “find out what happened” with Ukraine’s supposed meddling, alongside Russia, in the 2016 U.S. election. Then there was Trump’s “other thing”: his desire that Ukraine “look into”

There is no longer a question as to whether the Democrats will lose in their quest to upend 2016, the only remaining unknowns are where, when, and how badly. And, of course, who is to take the blame? If the buzz around Washington is to be believed, it’s Adam Schiff. The Democrats have their choice as to where they will fail, which, in large part, can help determine the extent of the self-inflicted damage their party will ultimately suffer.

It was getting towards an hour since we’d been marched out to the edge of the South Lawn to wait for the president. The cameraman, zooming in on the window, informed us that the other guy was Attorney General William Barr. Outside, the crisp fall dusk was punctured by the metallic roar of a helicopter engine.
