It Was Obama All Along

The publication of a set of notes taken by now-disgraced former FBI agent, Peter Strzok related to the prosecution of former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn provides the first specific evidence that former president Obama was behind the wrongful prosecution of Flynn and, almost certainly, the investigation of Donald Trump’s campaign and presidential transition. Strzok took the notes at a January 5, 2017 White House meeting at which he, Obama, Joe Biden, then-deputy attorney general Sally Yates, then-FBI director James Comey and Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, all were present. (Snip) Obama directs the investigation of Flynn to proceed.

Fine. So now what? Probably the same thing we have been getting with all the evidence so far. Nothing. Our justice system is as corrupt as any 3rd world el presidente banana republic.

I would support General Flynn to sue the h3ll out of him and his family. Go for everything that big ears has and more. Don't forget to have a financial investigator to track his off shore accounts. GO FOR IT ALL!!!!

Chumley, good luck prosecuting any Democrat in Washington DC. That hotbed of liberal, left wingers would just laugh at such an idea given the population (read jury pool) are either employed by or receive welfare from them. nina 484, the sun will rise in the West before Graham does anything to get either Obama or Biden to testify. Oh, he might bloviate on Fox about it but after this election cycle it will be back to crickets.

0 has been running the shadow government and leading the charge on fundamentally transforming our country for over 3 years. He won't rest til all our suburbs that ran away from the cities to avoid de facto anarchy get in line. Once the whole place is locked out from political choice, elections won't matter in the nature of the cities where the Dims have a lock on power. Next is confiscation of guns because that is the only option for people who want to become free again because elections will be rigged. Confiscation of wealth and redistribution is also high on their list of course.

Obama is the ''Jeffrey Epstein'' of government. All he can, while he can, for as long as he can. Then come back for seconds. Now we are certain that Obama will NEVER be prosecuted for what he has done because he was quickly shoe horned into the White House to prevent such litigation.

If Strzok wasn’t such an arrogant smirking arse, I might believe that he took those notes as CYA because he knew what they were doing was illegal and could blow up in their faces. Even if that’s true, he still went along with it. Book him Dano.

They (i.e. 0bama and Biden) cannot realistically be prosecuted and convicted by jury in Washington which voted 96% for Hillary. The OJ trial will look like fine administration of justice. But they can be brought in front of cameras and be forced to claim executive privilege or the 5th. It will not change die heard Democrats but maybe some independents.

I dont know that anything can be done. Obama, as the Chief Law Enforcement officer and CIC theoretically can order investigations, order prosecutions and order cases dropped. Republican presidents, not so much. Was it an abuse of power? Probably. But who abused their power, the POTUS, or the investigators, or both? The founders never envisioned a corrupt system from top to bottom. They set up a system of checks and balances in a time when honor actually meant something. The didnt have the imagination for a system whereby one party would completely coverup their malfeasance, from the Executive, to the legislative, to the judiciary to the media. I dont know how to fix a system where over half the people out there are perfectly fine with the system as is, or worse, dont care.

The smartest conservatives I know have weighed everything and realize AG Barr will tease and hint but in the end, Obama’s treasonous mafia will be protected by Deep State. The same army of unionized Federal employees who protected the Clintons all these years will do the same for Obama. Not enough of these people care more about America, their children’s and grandchildren’s future than they do for their job status and pension.

Those of us who were not mesmerized by the Silver Tongued Devil's early speeches around the world knew exactly what "Fundamentally Change America" meant. The only other societies with which he was familiar were that of Kenya and Indonesia, not exactly role models for a free country. But he failed at changing us as he failed at everything else that he and ValJar attempted. Communism and Islam do not provide good recipe books for anything. He is a racist, hate-filled bitter little man who accomplished nothing of value.

Get the conspirators. Before Obama was elected the FBI and CIA pretty much operated as a rouge entity, if their power were threatened they could process a crime. We know Clinton and Obama knew about the operation of these agencies but they are both too stupid to plan this in detail. All Obama had to do was give them carte blanche in the operation. No they couldn't convict Obama in a court but certainly make him appear under oath he wouldn't go to jail but I would like the see the Obama's skip the country never to come back in shame. Health issues and the liquor bottle will take care of Hillary Clinton.

"There is zero chance that the three ran “Crossfire Hurricane” without Obama’s knowledge." This has been obvious since the beginning. Plus, there was involvement of the State Department, the IRS, and other agencies in one form or another. It is beyond belief that BO was ignorant of it and more than likely was in charge of it. The proof has been slow to emerge but every exposure leads in the direction to confirm that this was a White House run criminal conspiracy the likes of which has never been seen before. THIS was BO's "audacity" and the "transformation of America" that he envisioned. As to the hapless, hopelessly corrupt Biden, I suspect that he was too much of a dope and a loud mouth for BO to include him except peripherally. However, if he links himself to one of the principle players like Rice, it will be like tying an anchor around his neck. When Durham presents his findings, even if there are not convictions there is likely to be significant taint of people like Rice. Barr has been too vocal about things to think there isn't enough to make public. Biden will then plunge to the bottom of the muck with Rice. Or there will be dem chaos as Rice is dumped and another VP contender is chosen.

FTA: "It’s a great pity that you can’t impeach someone who is no longer in office, because Obama’s actions — clearly in violation of the law and of the constitutional rights of Flynn, Trump, Carter Page, and others — were entirely worthy of impeachment." It's my understanding that they still CAN be impeached. Likely? No. Even if the Republicans retake the House, all it will take is for someone in the far corner of the room to whisper "racist" and the Pubbies will scurry off in the darkness with their tails between their legs.

Don't worry about trying to prosecute Obama or even Biden. Simply go after all of the others involved, and it will all link back to them anyhow. I believe this is what's in the works anyhow. It would be amazing if on the day AG Barr is to testify in front of Nadler, that they not only handed down indictments but arrested a couple of these folks involved the day before. To put it all into perspective, you need to realize that many of the people in Congress didn't even know about the 50+ transcripts that were hidden that detailed all of them confirming there was no evidence, no crimes, no collusion, etc... Most of them just learned of this directly in just the last few months. It was all speculated previously, but not directly known, and now part of the OFFICIAL record.

MUCH worse than Watergate. Nixon participated in a cover-up of a Keystone Kops burglary at the Watergate Hotel's DNC headquarters after the fact. Obama directed the illegal activities of multiple government intel and law enforcement agencies in an attempt to cripple if not destroy the Trump presidency before Trump could even take office. Obama's guilt is orders of magnitude incredibly worse than Nixon's. And the criminal will walk away still claiming, without much blow-back, that his administration was scandal-free.

Finding out what a piece of garbage Obummer really was will be our only satisfaction. He will not be arrested, tried or fined --- pure and simple. America doesn't do things like that and it would be a bad thing as his peeps will rally around him anyway. It would be an unending circus. No --- The only thing we can take heart in will be a trial & verdict in the court of public opinion. The jury is still somewhat out until "Bull" Durham's other show falls but most of us now see our former POTUS as a useless lump of fertilizer. What we can do, however, is make sure Obama's former staff are harried and shunned for the rest of their lives. Every chance we get, treat them like the members of the pariah class they are. And Flynn should sue their pants off for false arrest and defamation --- and he'll win!

There will be indictments below Obama’s level. He will be left alone. But will there be successful prosecutions? There are about 4 months left until the election. If Trump loses this is over. Will Barr let the clock run out? I wouldn’t place any bets on it.

Dittos, #12. There appears to be a majority of people who aren't even interested in whether or not there was criminal activity, as long as their agendas are served. For example, a recent survey found that a majority of voters believe Joe Biden used the office of VP for personal/family gain, yet many of these voters will vote for him. We have now duplicated the Chicago political system at the national level.

Folks need to realize that evidence in the public venue is totally different from evidence that will actually stand up in our corrupted court system. We get one shot at most of these people, I want it to count for something. Not be soggy powder because too many people are so impatient. Remember, all the Obama holdovers are still blocking many things. IIRC, the last 4 lawyers who got canned the past couple months were possibly the last roadblocks to indictments.

According to the make-believe world of the left, we are experiencing a great moment in American racial history. For the first time, the story goes, more whites than ever are coming to realize how racist America is, how racist cops are and how systemically racist everything in America is. Only now do many Americans understand just how racist Uncle Ben, Aunt Jemima, Ulysses Grant, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, "whitening" agents, meritocracy, Western culture, Christianity, jailing blacks and the NFL are. The bestselling book in America is about alleged "white fragility" -- the term for any rational response to the irrational charge that all whites are racist.

The latest Democratic primary battle between the party’s establishment and its progressive wing is coming to the must-win Colorado Senate race on Tuesday. Former Gov. John Hickenlooper, whom Democrats recruited into the race after he abandoned a poorly performing presidential campaign, is trying to fend off challenger Andrew Romanoff from his left and secure the nomination to face GOP Sen. Cory Gardner, one of the two most vulnerable Republicans up for reelection this year. Hickenlooper has drawn the ire of liberals in Colorado for his moderate record on energy and the scorn of national progressives for his vocal criticism of Sen. Bernie Sanders during the presidential primary.

Of all the cop-outs in Supreme Court jurisprudence, Chief Justice John Roberts’s concurrence in June Medical Services v. Russo has to be one of the worst. The case was brought by abortion providers in Louisiana who bristled at having health and safety rules imposed upon them that made it harder to do business. They arguably lacked standing to represent the class supposedly aggrieved in this case — the very patients those rules were designed to protect from quack abortionists. Yet, they succeeded both in establishing their standing and in upholding the controversial standard that such requirements cannot stand, being overly burdensome to women who might seek abortions —

Former president Barack Obama has been "working" on his third memoir for several years. In that time, his wife, nutrition extremist Michelle Obama, has authored and published her own internationally best-selling memoir, Becoming. For whatever reason, Barack appears unable to tolerate his wife's literary success. He has expressed an almost pathological level of annoyance at Michelle's ability to complete a memoir in under two years. It was a sore subject in 2019, when the Atlantic published a (sort of) preview of Obama's forthcoming tome, but with few details beyond the fact that the former president was struggling to keep it under 1,000 pages.

‘While Biden was in his basement, @realDonaldTrump had 5.3 MILLION+ viewers tune in to his rally,’ wrote GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel last week. It’s a variation on a theme for the Republican party of late: take the vacant airwaves left by a subdued Biden campaign and fill them with spurious claims about the whereabouts of the presumptive Democratic nominee. Sure, Biden has been quiet, relative to Trump — who isn’t? — but he hasn’t been totally basement-bound. The former vice president has been venturing out for socially distanced local speeches.

Evans is the great-great-grandson of Anna Short Harrington, one of several actresses who played Aunt Jemima at fairs and in advertisements throughout the early 20th century. The company’s rebrand and future $5 million donation rang hollow to him. “That’s the easy way for them to go,” Evans tells The Daily Beast. “I guess you would say, that’s saving money.” He had a different reckoning in mind.

It seems clear now that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is going to ban President Donald Trump. It’s just a matter of when. Dorsey will come up with a pretext, however absurd or cynical, as part of Twitter’s ongoing efforts to interfere in the 2020 election. It will probably consist of a charge that Trump has had one too many violations of some entirely subjective and impossible-to-define Twitter policy on abusive or harmful speech. We got another preview of what that might look like this week when Twitter once again appended a warning label to a Trump tweet that apparently violated Twitter’s policy against “abusive behavior.” What did Trump say that was abusive?

When President Obama was in his 75-day transition to the Presidency, he initiated correspondence with Supreme Leader Khamenei of Iran to explore, at the least, some form of what French diplomats call détente, or even entente. But Iran remained an adversary to the United States. Instead of rapprochement, the Shia theocracy was sanctioned by UN Security Council resolution 1803 on March 3, 2008.

A stretch of lackluster polling for President Trump has some Republican operatives nervous about the president’s reelection prospects in November – with some even floating the possibility for the first time that Trump could drop out if his poll numbers don’t rebound. “It’s too early, but if the polls continue to worsen, you can see a scenario where he drops out,” one GOP operative who asked to remain anonymous told Fox News. “I’ve heard the talk but I doubt it’s true,” another said. “My bet is, he drops if he believes there’s no way to win.”    Correction*

Conservatives were outraged eight years ago when Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the liberals on the court to uphold Obamacare's individual mandate. His swing almost singlehandedly saved the Affordable Care Act. A few years removed and he made a few better decisions, somewhat appeasing conservatives. But last year he helped kill the census citizenship question. Then, last week, he voted with liberals to reject President Trump's attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The court didn't say that Trump couldn't reverse the program, but that his legal reasoning wasn't up to par.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with his four more liberal colleagues in ruling that the law requiring doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals violates the abortion right the court first announced in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. In two previous abortion cases, Roberts had favored restrictions. The Louisiana law is virtually identical to one in Texas that the court struck down in 2016.

The St. Louis lawyers who pulled weapons on protesters marching past their home are being investigated for possible criminal charges, the city’s lead prosecutor has revealed. Mark and Patricia McCloskey — who went viral after brandishing an AR-15-style rifle and a silver-colored handgun, respectively — were the only ones to lodge a police report over Sunday’s confrontation, insisting they were “victims” of threatening trespassers who entered a gated community, the St. Louis American noted. But the husband-and-wife lawyers are being probed by police and prosecutors for possible threats against the crowd, authorities announced Monday.
