What The Hell? Report Claims Durham
Is Dropping the Spygate Investigation

Original Article

Posted By: DW626, 11/16/2020 6:07:22 AM

It appears that the bureaucracy is more afraid of the Democrats than the people, as a report emerges claiming the Justice Department is dropping the investigation into Spygate, nearly two years after it began. The Federalist’s Sean Davis reports that the investigation into a treacherous spying operation on Donald Trump’s campaign and presidency is being dropped. A source familiar with Durham’s ongoing investigation of the bogus Russian collusion operation tells @FDRLST: “Durham isn’t doing anything. Dropping his investigations. He’s worried about blowback from Biden. What an absolute disgrace.”

This is disappointing, but not surprising. I've never had any confidence in Durham. Look at his picture - he looks like some kind of kook. The glowing praise showered on him these past few years is hollow words political speak.

The Deep State is entrenched everywhere in DC. EVERYTHING will be swept under the rug (China, Hillary, Hunter, pay offs, the stealing of votes, you name it and it will disappear) and NO ONE will ever be held accountable.

Just about what we expected isn't it. Trump should fire Barr TODAY ! He hired Durham for this fiasco and told us how great and unbiased he is. Someone should file a law suit against Durham for the American taxpayers and demand he pay back every cent spent on this farce.

What are "We the People" seeing here? Do these DC Beltway b@stards not realize our forefathers risked EVERYTHING for this Republic, but now our petty little bureaucrats are afraid of ruffling feathers in the Beltway birdcage and possibly risking their precious pensions? I'm afraid we will be heading toward civil war to take back our Republic from those who are too weak to properly administer it for us, We the People.

There won’t be any blowback from Biden soon. When the fraud is exposed, all these folks will be in such a weakened position, hopefully America will be enraged and Durham’s prosecution will be easily added to the list of charges. Let’s hope they are being strategic!

If true, this is simply another indication that the Democrats have overstayed their time in history. I've suspected this. If so, we ARE going to come to war, this cycle; not because of Trump, but instead because of the nature and necessity of justice. We used to hoke that the Clinton Administration was a criminal mob with a flag on the wall. This is evidence that it goes beyond that. Its time to remove not only the criminal politicians, but the enablers across our society that make it possible for them to abuse We the People. Otherwise, America will not rise again

A country can vote to become Socialist but it can never vote to go back. It already happened here, I’ve been in denial with the Trump end run of the State run State in 2016. The systems of power churned on for years and accomplished there task. That 12 miles of new border wall we accomplished will stand as a monument to how feeble the will of the American People has become. THE Party is beyond the law, (they are the law). Votes can be as lopsided as a Trump vs Biden Rally and it won’t make any difference.

Hard to believe, but we all knew something was up when the investigation dragged on through the summer. When the sanctimonious announcement regarding not wanting the result to influence the election was made, then I knew. The DOJ was indicating that politics trump justice. The whole investigation was about political corruption. No getting around it regardless when the results were made public. We are in deep trouble in this country. We have one man and far too few supporters who are doing battle with an entrenched corrupt government with unbelievable assets they are more than willing to use against anyone who opposes their self-appointed ascendant power structure. The arrogance of these corruptocrats is breath taking. They actually believe that can thwart the will of the people, deny them a free and fair election and continue to undermine this country at every opportunity in order to cement their power indefinitely. These wretched anti-American zealots with nothing but a lust for power that drives them believe they can continue in their corruption even after it has been exposed for all to see. The $64,000 question is are we going to let them. God help us to find the will to destroy the deep state and all of its evil tentacles.

President Trump supporters - Crowd Source the information quickly and accurately - don't let up. Truth will be revealed by patriots. Leave no stone unturned.

We have to wait. There us a lot of misleading news out there. I hope and pray that we still have SOME honorable men slogging through the swamp, looking for victory. But they have to be supported by steely hearts and iron will, from US. We cannot whine and say its useless. We are all mortal. We are born, we live, we die. We can't escape that. Our immortality, in part, come from the legacy we leave our children. Do we want that legacy to be Freedom? Or Slavery? Still your quivering hearts, talk to your neighbors, WE are the militia spoken of in the second amendment. We are the last resort, and always have been. Take courage. We all pass away. Let us leave our children the legacy we hoped for. Consign our souls to God, and prepare as best we can. We can see the Evil all around us. Let us push on to victory.

You might think this is fake news-- but consider: YEARS have dragged by and Barr and Durham have done nothing. To me, they are as bad as the traitors themselves-- in some ways worse. Comey, Hillary, Brennan, et alia are who they are, corrupt to the core. You can only expect treachery from them. But the responsibility to maintain the rule of law fell to Barr and Durham. They utterly failed in their sworn duty.

So Arkancide paid Durham a visit to advise him on the consequences of publishing his report. Highly disappointing, but, not surprising. Extortion at its best. Even Barr got under his desk. We are becoming the banana republic we all feared. I can only hope that someone can leak the report out. Someone who has no life to live for because they wouldn't be around for very long afterwards. However, if Trump prevails and is sworn in early next year as President, my my, the possibilities exposing the Spygate scandal and coverup are endless.

How many convictions did Muellhead get? Zero relating to his collusion mandate. Very few for process or unrelated crimes. Is that what you want? Process crimes? So that we can be as dirty as the opponents? Both Barr and Durham are on the record disagreeing with the dem narrative that there was no spying and that the crossfire hurricane investigation was properly predicated. NO ANONYMOUS flash fire stories. Barr and Durham must speak for themselves. Either they are honest or there is no such thing as honest in DC and it is futile to follow any of this.

THIS is why Durham has been slow walking this for two years. The Swamp Creatures never, ever intended to do any REAL investigation, do any REAL arrests and punishments. This has been a sham from the beginning, it seems now. AG Barr seems to be just another magician - making charges disappear before your very eyes. Making the guilty walk free.

Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller ordered a Pentagon-wide halt to cooperation with the transition of President-elect Biden, shocking officials across the Defense Department, senior administration officials tell Axios. Behind the scenes: A top Biden official was unaware of the directive. Administration officials left open the possibility cooperation would resume after a holiday pause. The officials were unsure what prompted Miller’s action, or whether President Trump approved. Why it matters: Miller’s move, which stunned officials throughout the Pentagon, was the biggest eruption yet of animus and mistrust toward the Biden team from the top level of the Trump administration.  Correction*

It is with desperation that Trump supporters -- those of us who are faithful to the Constitution and expect our elected officials to be faithful to it as well -- are distraught at the rumor that Durham is giving-up on his investigation of the coup plotters, who broke every law on the books in their attempt to derail the Trump presidency. How can this be? What has been shared with the public is more than enough to send many of the conspirators to prison for the rest of their lives, but as yet not one of them has even been charged with a crime.

It appears that the bureaucracy is more afraid of the Democrats than the people, as a report emerges claiming the Justice Department is dropping the investigation into Spygate, nearly two years after it began. The Federalist’s Sean Davis reports that the investigation into a treacherous spying operation on Donald Trump’s campaign and presidency is being dropped. A source familiar with Durham’s ongoing investigation of the bogus Russian collusion operation tells @FDRLST: “Durham isn’t doing anything. Dropping his investigations. He’s worried about blowback from Biden. What an absolute disgrace.”

"It's something I'm going to think about," O'Rourke said. "This state has suffered perhaps more than any other in the midst of this pandemic." O'Rourke cited the roughly 1,600 virus deaths in the Sun City to date and blamed Abbott for

Two Democrat lawmakers introduced a bill on Thursday, dubbed the “Vote at Home Act,” to expand “Oregon-style” mail-in voting nationwide, contending that the move is necessary to “make real progress” in the country.The bill, introduced by Sen.

The measure would “massively expand vote-at-home ballot access, provide voters with pre-paid ballot envelopes and enact automatic voter registration.”The lawmakers point to the unprecedented number of Americans who voted by mail in the 2020 presidential election — a move Democrats vehemently pushed.

We reported during the campaign on Joe Biden’s frequent confusion, misstatements, gaffes and fits of anger when challenged by a question.But he was able to have limited debates thanks to the virus and hide out in his basement for a good part of the campaign. When he did venture out, it often didn’t go well.You can see a good breakdown here from my colleague Sister Toldjah of his short temper and how he’s gone off on voters, everything from calling a voter a “lying dog-faced pony soldier” to telling a voter he was

Abdulaziz Mohamed can hardly fathom the idea of having his student loan debt wiped away. The University of Minnesota sophomore, who has amassed about $10,000 in debt, often thinks about his job prospects and whether he will be positioned to quickly pay off the loans. President Joe Biden's call to cancel $10,000 in federal student loan debt for all borrowers gives Mohamed hope of a future where young people aren't crushed by debt. "That would be a huge lift off my back," he said. The debate over how to tackle the mounting student debt crisis has intensified since Biden was elected,

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) accused Republican lawmakers of being racists again. In fact, she claimed that there are “legitimate white supremacist sympathizers” among GOP House members. In other news, dogs bark, pigs stink, and CNN’s Don Lemon isn’t really a journalist. The socialist lawmaker made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC on Wednesday evening during a conversation about her experience with the U.S. Capitol riots. She previously stated that she chose to hunker down in a less safe area because the more secure area was occupied by Republican lawmakers. AOC intimated that she was too afraid to hide alongside GOP representatives because she supposedly believed they

DETROIT — General Motors wants to end production of all diesel- and gasoline-powered cars, trucks and SUVs by 2035 and shift its entire new fleet to electric vehicles as part of a broader plan to become carbon neutral by 2040, the company said Thursday. The company plans to use 100% renewable energy to power its U.S. facilities by 2030 and global facilities by 2035 — five years ahead of a previously announced goal. GM’s announcement comes a day after President Joe Biden signed a series of executive orders that prioritize climate change across all levels of government and put the U.S. on track to curb planet-warming carbon emissions.
