‘Bigger Than Watergate’

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 5/1/2020 5:49:25 AM

On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) stated that the recent revelations about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s case are “bigger than Watergate and we need to make sure people are held accountable.” McCarthy told host Sean Hannity that people need “a Congress that will work with them and work with this president. Because what you have talked about with Flynn and with the president is bigger than Watergate and we need to make sure people are held accountable.”

Right, "people need a Congress that will work with them and work with this president." Uh-huh. People need a tooth fairy. People need to win Powerball five times in a row without ever buying a ticket. Yeah, I need a new Kubota tractor with brush hog, loader and auger attachments, oh yeah and a trailer for it too. I mean, hell, since none of that's going to happen, and Flynn's life is NEVER going to be undestroyed and the felons who committed these heinous crimes against Flynn, Roger Stone, Papadapoulos, Carter Page will NEVER be indicted, why wish for a loaf of bread that you need when you can wish for a supermarket? Oh look, there's a bunch of purple unicorns in Washington, DC shooting delicious Skittles out of their butts! And, people who commit crimes "should be" held accountable. I need a new pair of rose colored glasses and a dentist to fix all these cavities Kevin just gave me.

Anybody want to place a bet on whether or not anyone is held responsible? IMO this was a criminal act and the people who performed it should be prosecuted and jailed.

Looks like everyone now understands the meaning of "“a Congress that will work with them and work with this president" coming for the lips of a politician. To think someone mixed-up Andrew McCarthy, who may only be seldom wrong, with Kevin McCarthy, who's always "wrong" and invariably ineffective...

Apparently, some people do not understand our own government, or where responsibilities lie. Those who call for McCarthy or any other House or Senate member to prosecute and jail these criminals should learn that those people do not do that. The part of government that does those things is the DOJ, within the Administration. Legislators, like McCarthy, can reveal evidence, find witnesses, have hearings, and publicize crimes. I think the Republicans have done a pretty good job of exposing crimes and naming names, but have no power to go out and arrest and prosecute anyone. Direct your frustration to the prosecutors within the Administration.

This type of corruption starts at the top. When you compare the corruption and incompetence within the obama administration; i.e., fast and furious, weaponizing IRS, FBI, DOJ, Benghazi, stifling U.S. industry with burdensome regulations, one-sided trade deals, perpetuating a global warming hoax, blatant attempt to bring down a duly elected President, to Watergate then you realize obama was the worst, most unAmerican president in American history. Our founders must be spinning in their graves.

This is indeed bigger than Watergate. But like the coup of Watergate, it too has a corrupted FBI leader at its core. The Clintons and Obama have been the worst and most toxic influences on that agency in the history of the bureau. The media is not going to talk much about this, because they are part of this coup attempt, just like Watergate. It is always in their interests to overthrow anybody who doesn't agree with their poisonous views.

He is raising money like crazy vis text, email, etc. If he had any leadership skills different than our last few pathetic Republican Speakers, he would have already called Republicans back to work.

This is all well and good but only the beginning. We want to see indictments. We want to see civil suits that enable General Flynn to recover his lost money. We want these people who betrayed Flynn to find out how it feels to have the government bring its power to bear on you. In short, we want justice.

As per #15 - The Clintons and Obama have been the worst and most toxic influences on that agency in the history of the bureau. Who, what (files), when, where, and more importantly, how, did Hillary Clinton get possession of 900 raw FBI files. Is the genesis of the fraud and corruption of the government at this level that point in time? What makes them immune from justice? Have they bought everyone at DOJ and State?Did not Chuck Colson, special counsel to Pres. Nixon, serve approx 1 year in Club Fed for having ONE raw FBI file in his possession? And those 900 files are practically a misdemeanor when contrasted with the complete disregard for security protocols with her 'off the books' server and pay-to-play foreign policy personal enrichment schemes.

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld thought former Vice President Joe Biden may have slipped up in his comments about sexual assault allegations against him. The co-host of “The Five” weighed in along with his colleagues on an interview by the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee in which he publicly addressed the accusation against him for the first time. (Video) Biden was grilled by MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski on Friday about the allegations made by former Senate staffer Tara Reade.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday updated their coronavirus tracking numbers, leading to confusion on social media about two websites within the organization that show vastly different death tolls. The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) website for the coronavirus lists the total deaths from COVID-19 – the disease caused by the virus – as 37,308 in the United States. That’s a much lower number than what has been reported in the media or by other coronavirus trackers. For example, the Johns Hopkins University coronavirus tracker, lists the number of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. at 65,645. Even more confusing, a separate CDC website –

Earlier this week, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer postponed lawmakers’ return to Washington DC, citing concerns about coronavirus transmission. Congress should stay out of Washington DC a lot longer. Even until next year.The primary reason isn’t because they, like health-care workers or truckers or grocery store employees or pastors, might catch coronavirus doing their jobs. The primary reason is that when they “do something,” Congress usually hurts the country far worse than if they just took naps in the closet or played cards all day, like my husband’s coworkers at a union-run former workplace.

Despite polls showing that he leads President Trump in key states and in the country overall, there remains something seriously missing and not credible in the putative presidential nomination of Joe Biden. The polls are never accurate with Trump, and there is both a reticence by his supporters to identify themselves and some sampling errors by the main polling organizations because of the unusually high numbers of people this president draws to the polls in his support who are not otherwise frequent voters.

American universities once attracted students from around the world. Prestige places like Harvard and Caltech did so, but it also happened at good state schools like the University of Illinois, University of Texas and even my own alma mater, the University of Colorado. The scientific education was second to none. Even outside of science, a broad-based humanities program thrived. As an engineering student at CU, my required curriculum included two full years of “Great Books” where we studied Socrates, Homer, Virgil, Chaucer and Milton. But then some interrelated things happened.
