Ryan’s Hedge; Obama’s Deal

My book, Kindle Version, STREET POLITICS: It Ain’t Your Daddy’s GOP Anymore! 50% of all author proceeds go to fighting Multiple Sclerosis!! ONLY $4.99

Ryan First

Paul Ryan’s speech today was encouraging and may be helpful. But there was a line in there I had to think about.  He said Trump was the only one to hear the voices and that is what made him successful.  This just isn’t the truth.  Since 2010, Ryan and the rest of the GOP leadership has heard the voices, saw what the people, especially what their constituencies wanted, then cynically pretended to respond, only to ignore the voices after the last three elections.

When he ascended to the Speaker’s chair, the people were clearly looking for someone to send a complete healthcare bill to the White House (let him, the president, try to make an argument against it) and cut and balance the budget NOW.  What does he do a full year and a half before an election?  He takes the seat and then says we better wait a year or two to fight those battles.  And THAT COWARDICE is what made Trump successful. Conservatives felt they had no one left to turn to.

If Ryan does what he said he’d do in the near future, Trump may have some success as a president.  But if Ryan reverts to form; he will stymie the White House and may cause a real rift in the party, not a primary “rift”.

Barack Obama’s Pickle

When the president-elect meets the president on Thursday, you can be sure one distasteful item on the agenda will be Let’s Make a Deal. It wouldn’t surprise me to hear BHO had already sent out some surrogates to do a little bootlicking in advance.

Here’s why.  Obama can’t pardon Hillary.  There are still people screaming for more oversight and a special prosecutor.  But as Obama is fully aware, you can’t let a Clinton skate on corruption or malfeasance unless you have your own get-out-of-jail-free card.  Don’t believe me? Google Jim Guy Tucker, Google McDougal (Hah-hah.  That’s funny because it rhymes.)  They ran interference to take the heat off the Clintons.  So did a lot of people who ended up unemployed pariah over the years. And Barry O is up to his eyeballs in his communications with Clinton’s illegal server.  So, he will be offering to support Trump on XYZ if Trump gives assurances that BHO is not to be pursued for using the server and lying about it.  He will also want to pardon Clinton with no interference form the new administration. Obama will not allow himself to be the last man standing.  Smart.

If Trump refuses, Hillary’s legal problems have only just gotten started.

That’s a Wrap

It’s been a long three weeks and a very long 24 hours.  My brain is fried.  One more post tomorrow, then I will likely take a day or two off from the political jazz.  When I return, it may be on the subjects of travel or gardening.   Who knows?

Good night, all.  And remember, for two hundred and forty years, this country has successfully turned over governments every four to eight years without violence.  No other country in history can say that.  So while parties and players may win or loose, every time we do this, the country wins.

I am proud of every single person who voted last night.

What Do I Know, Anyway? Experts! [bemused]

Once again, months after reality was established here, the “experts” are finally catching up. A recent example is when Charles Krauthammer said he was finally getting the Trump effect. People had tired of the same old formulaic, often weak-kneed Republicans and wanted something new. They found Trump’s brash delivery irresistible. That was on FOX Special Report about a month ago.

Streetpolitics.us had already established that before there was a Trump running for office. It’s a source of frustration that this site hasn’t hit its stride yet, despite being ahead of everyone on most things and having a solid grasp of today’s political climate. It has led, and will continue to lead to a string of I-told-you-so posts. That is not for the pleasure of just saying it, although it can occasionally be fun.   The intention is to point to lessons learned in the hopes we don’t have to learn them again. Sadly, until Street Politics gains a real niche, I told you so will be a frequent message.

Gee, thanks, Judge!

The latest unwitting convert to clear thinking is Andrew “Judge” Napolitano, a popular commentator on FOX and FOX Business. He was commenting on a story about the FBI’s unethical whitewash of Clinton’s illegal server. It seems the agent who ran the investigation has resigned from the FBI in protest. He said the investigation went “sideways”. In other words, there was a lot of activity, lots of interviews, lots of immunities granted without requiring testimony. But there was never any real progress. Progress was never intended. The last straw was that no grand jury was seated to hear the mountain of evidence showing Hillary Clinton heading up at least one, likely two criminal enterprises.

So Much for “Experts”…

Napolitano was so smug. “This investigation was never going to go anywhere,” he opined after the fact. It was as if he knew it all along. This would be the same Andrew Napolitano who said for months that since the FBI was running and investigation, Clinton was in REAL trouble! That James Comey is a REAL professional. He wasn’t going to get caught up on all that DC corruption.

Well, readers at this site knew months before everybody (with the possible exception of Judicial Watch) that the FBI was slow-walking the investigation with the intention of running out the clock. The idea was to get as close to the nomination as possible. The Clinton team, including James Comey, wanted to make Clinton’s candidacy a fate accompli. I suspect it early on and called it before Comey disgraced himself and whored away his career in front of congress.

Call this braggadocio, if you wish. My point is to establish the value of this site and encourage you to filter what you see and hear through streetpolitics.us. It isn’t necessary for you to agree with my conclusions. But you can be sure that you are getting informed input. I am clearly in no one’s pocket, as no one pays me but me.

Making the Old New Again

Another bit of breaking news in the last couple of days: Obama sent official documents to Hillary on her unsecured, illegal server. My God! That means he lied to us – TWICE – in one-on-one interviews. Barry O says he first learned about the illegal server by watching the news.

Call me crazy, but didn’t we learn he had a pseudonym for use in communication with the illegal server about 5 months ago? Didn’t we establish the lies to credulous “journalists” on video then? Why is this breaking news? And why didn’t the investigation include Barry’s release of classified documents onto the interwebs in concert with BJ Bill’s wife?

We’ll likely never know the answers to these questions. Congress is too weak and inept to do their job and the press is too interested in elevating the worst president in history to the level of Washington and Reagan.

The Ever Present Media Flim Flam!

The Latest Media Flim Flam

It is now accepted by many that the news industry exists, not to inform, but to advance a political agenda. There are few people, including those who work the con, who don’t accept blatantly slanted news as axiomatic to modern life. It isn’t new, but they’ve gotten so good at it and they’ve been so successful at creating an utterly apathetic citizenry, that the media now find themselves in a position to crate an entire presidential campaign out of whole cloth.

Gone are the days where reporters, especially television personalities had to be nuanced in how they spun a story. Now, without the slightest blush of embarrassment, Wolf Blitzer can weave a tale in which a felon can be president while carrying her Republican counterpart from announcement to nomination to defeat in the general election even as the viewer knows it is happening. And the public laps it up, pretending to believe what they are told. Those who don’t have retreated to their respective social network echo chambers, where they harmlessly tell each other how everyone (that would be the rest of the universe not a part of their conversation) is stupid.

They have the basic conclusion right anyway. We are gullible enough as a nation to be called “stupid”. No one on either side has made the slightest demand that their candidate measure up to the least standard. They didn’t think to. The candidates were brought to us 24/7 by the propaganda machine.

How to Make an Idiot Look Good

While Trump faced seventeen opponents, you’d never know there were more than three in the race at any one time. The news outlets would split screen an empty podium for an hour before a Trump event almost every day. He would blather about what is bad, how great his poll numbers are, what a rich guy he was, and it would be carried almost with out comment. Sometimes a talking head would make a remark about Trump’s lack of seriousness or intellectual laziness. But that was pretty much the show. Later in the day they’d carry an obligatory sound bite from whomever Trump was attacking, and that would be the extent of the Republican primary coverage.

How to Make a Felon Look Acceptable

On the Dem side, there stands the most corrupt candidate ever fielded by a major party. The press pounded away at how no one wanted her opponent to be nominated because he is a socialist. Meanwhile, that opponent drove his campaign to one success after another. Had the devotion to the felon been a bit weaker, had the coverage of Sanders been any less condescending, he might have won. But alas, the corruption of the press and the “super delegates” was too great. The media got their girl nominated just under the California wire.

There exists enough material for the media to have gone after her on her slush fund, Benghazi and her illegal server and hounded her out of the race in a week, as they would have done to ANY serious-minded candidate. Her silly double speak answers to the lame questions that were asked are so easily picked apart that not having done so leaves the media nakedly in the bag as her pet. And yet, most people still speak of this election, AND OUR MEDIA, as if it all actually means something.

The race we have today is the exact race the elites inside the beltway, and those that feed off the scraps of the powerful, wanted us to have. The felon queen continues to give her elementary school speeches and the media slowly turns up the heat on the Donald. Now when he says something stupid they report he said something stupid. When he says things that make sense, they belittle or ignore the statements.

As Street Politics Predicted…

And it’s only just begun. As I have said since this time last year, by the time Trump is declared the official nominee, the media will be in a full feeding frenzy. By late July, you will be hearing about Trump’s mob ties. Reporters will be pounding away relentlessly at him. Banner headlines will record his demise. And BJ Bill’s wife will be left unmolested. No one will ask why a criminal continues to run for president. What happened to Comey and the FBI? Why did he chose to be such a tool?

The media also pretends this is a two-person race. Their justification for ignoring a successful, two-term governor on the ballot in all fifty states is that he is not polling well. Of course, a thinking voter would know Gary Johnson isn’t polling because the press is pretending he doesn’t exist. I have seen him interviewed twice in the last four months on FOX and once on CNN. (See, now they can say, “What slanted coverage? We interviewed Johnson!”) Only one of those appearances was prime time.

I admit I am pissing up a rope here. You’ll read this, know it’s true and maybe sigh at the ugliness. So what. You won’t do anything about it. I could tell you how to get Johnson into the debates (in fact, I will in a later post), but experience says you won’t lift a finger to do so.

An ugly reality awaits you in November. It scares some of you. It disgusts most of you. But you are going to stand there and let it happen to you. I listen to all the loud, strong conservatives out their talking a big game. You talk about maintaining your right to assembly and free association, the right to carry a firearm and to say what is on your mind. But when they come for you, or your weapons, you’ll roll over and take it, meekly.

That will be your testament to the success of this monstrous infection we have permitted to fester in our midst.

It's Time to Arrest Hillary Ramrod Cinton!

The greatest advantage HRC has in keeping her campaign alive, and her old ass out of jail, is the half-hour news cycle and citizens with the attention span of a puppy in a yard full of squirrels.

News programs these days are loaded with little more than teasers about what is actually happening in the world. By cranking out short segments and repeating them over and over all day, Fox, CNN, the networks, etc. give the appearance of doing their jobs. They never have to really dig or layout complex stories and do any REAL analysis of what they are reporting. The kind of analysis you will see here and now. What I am about to discuss is correct and based on facts released by the Intel IG, the State Dept. and – stupidly – by HRC, herself. There is much more out there, but the people with the connections and resources to pursue it are too lazy or morally corrupt to do so.

With just this episode – there have been other very serious offenses committed by HRC, personally – crimes have been committed that make anything Nixon did vanish in significance. But the FBI drags its feet and those in a position to inform the public are simply taking talking points and released documents and passing them along with no real effort expended.

Some of the talking heads at Fox News are fond of saying that this steady drip, drip of news will hurt Clinton. That’s preposterous. She and her friends at State are controlling the flow to keep the story at a very low boil hoping to make her nomination a fait accompli, and any effort to undo it, a political conspiracy. The FBI slow-walking the investigation makes them complicit already. Without an informed electorate to deal with, they’ll continue running interference for Clinton.

If we are to avoid having an actual criminal running for president in the general election, this story must be exploded in the press and explained from the beginning up to the present, so people can finally see what this woman has done to sully herself and her office. Hillary Clinton must be placed under arrest. There is more than enough evidence to do that. More charges can always be added later as more emails are recovered from the server she “slicked” to hide evidence. Yes, another criminal offense.

I’ll give you a “for instance” regarding the FBI’s complicity on this matter. If it were discovered that I, while working in my previous job, had a computer at home, on which I conducted sensitive government business without having it properly authorized, I’d have been immediately arrested and my house would have been torn apart until every speck of evidence was gathered by investigators. I would have been immediately charged with crimes for simply having and using the computer at home. It would be a slam dunk.

If, in the course of the investigation, it was discovered that I had classified information or Privacy Act information or just For Official Use Only (FOUO) information on that computer, the charges would simply be laid on as they came to light. This would be done by honest investigators to prevent me from tampering with evidence or taking a runner.

By failing to treat HRC like any other criminal suspect, having caught her red-handed with the goods, the FBI not only gave her the opportunity to destroy evidence, leaving to doubt if we will ever get all the information she compromised, but they have allowed the story to fester and her lies to gain steam in the public eye.

And here’s how the criminal suspect is taking advantage of the time the FBI has provided.

There is an ever-evolving set of talking points used to cover up or play down Clinton’s crimes against the citizens of these United States. Many of the older points listed in a brilliant, earlier post are still recycled and regurgitated. But unscrupulous mouth-pieces also keep an ear out for new ones they are expected to obediently parrot on behalf of BJ Bill’s wife.

Here are two from last weekend.

First, Clinton’s minions are claiming that the State Department’s withholding of the 22 new, incriminating emails was a case of “over-classification run amuck.” Really?

Well, let’s think about that.  I will allow for the fact that most Clinton supporters do very little thinking. Those that do only think of ways of lying to themselves or others in order to keep this criminal’s political hopes alive.

We are told neither the hag nor her campaign have anything to do with the emails being released. Okay, well then how would they know the content of the 22 Top Secret, unreleased emails well enough to make a judgement as to the value of their classification? She is either lying because she doesn’t know which of the thousands of classified documents she released onto the internet were being withheld by State, or the Department of State is allowing her team to review the ones being released, thereby collaborating in the (criminal?) contempt of a judge’s requirements.

Another phony line comes from Erikka Knuti of Purple Strategies.[1.Do you like how they do that? “Purple” as if to say, “We’re not blue (Democrat) or red (Republican). We’re purple, for all the people, promoting understanding and civility. Yeah, right.] Her talking point? “All of this (the server, the cell phone, the passing of classified information) was perfectly legal in 2009.”

There is only one tiny problem with that statement: It is completely untrue.

In 2009, if you wanted to work remotely with government information there was an intense procedure that had to be followed. Any device (lap top, desk top, hand-held) would be government property. An official IT person charged with the task, would have to take the device out of the box, and make it compliant with government programs. That would not be the IT guy you talked into coming to your house and working under the table, without the proper authorization.

All work done on any of these devices would be through a government network, of the proper classification ONLY. All emails would go through the same network and be held AUTOMATICALLY on government servers. While you can say a server is just another computer, it doesn’t allow for the procedures to be sidestepped. They are there to protect the employee (even the Secretary of State) and the information for the purposes of security, history and oversight. 

Ignorance of these facts, as anyone who has ever taken training, as HRC did, in the handling of sensitive information, IS NOT AN EXC– USE. Nor is, “I forgot”, or “It was done for convenience”, nor are any of the other myths the Clinton drones are pushing.

The “just for convenience” line is an example sine qua non of the blindingly arrogant way in which BJ Bill’s wife conducts her affairs. Instead of carrying two small devices – her own for private messages – and one owned and provided by the government, for official business, Clinton expects people to believe she found it convenient to wire her house to hell and gone, pay for expensive computer equipment, bring a guy home from work to do unauthorized work, pay a higher utility bill, pay two companies to back up her server (neither of which was cleared to store the information) and coach others to commit crimes by cutting and pasting classified information into unclassified documents in order to send them along to HRC.[2. We have that last tidbit, her tutoring others to break the law, in writing.] This was all more convenient than carrying two small devices.

Even if you overlook the lie about numbers of devices – she carried two and possibly three – the fact remains she expected this “convenience” lie to be believed no matter how ridiculous the facts made it look.

The evidence would indicate that this woman intentionally ignored the law, set up a private server and intentionally shielded her work as an official of these United States from oversight and historical protection. In doing so, it becomes clearer every day that she did so to the endangerment of people’s lives and the degradation of our national security.

Worst of all, she had a cadre of enablers, including the President of the United States.

A comical side note: On 3 Feb, speaking on CNN, this lying creep said that the vast right-wing conspiracy is still the problem here, going all the way back to 1993 with her and BJ Bill lying for years about his abuse of women. The present day right-wing conspirators include the slow-walking FBI and an Obama appointee.

2/5/16: Last night, the thing said if she is to be investigated, others MUST be as well. So…Powell and Rice had spillage so what if I loaded an unsecured server with thousands of classified documents. Is that the new defense?

In trying to quantify and detail her level of contempt toward the American people, language fails.

Would you be walking free right now? Hillary is!

Hillary Clinton is a CRIMINAL!

Update: 30 Jan 16

Within the last two weeks we have learned that there were SAP level documents on Hillary Clinton’s server. We learned that BJ Bill’s hag told people to delete headings on sensitive documents and send them unclas (Intentional criminal activity – and we have it in writing). And this week, the State Dept. held back 22 documents from release because to do so would do grievous harm to national security. And the documents were on her illegal, unsecured server

Update: 10 Dec 15

I will have much more to say on this issue. As of this week I am beginning to suspect the FBI of slouching toward the Clinton vortex of corruption.

We have heard FBI Director Comey say repeatedly that the FBI was apolitical and above reproach on issues political. Then, oddly, we hear that same thing repeatedly from the Agent heading up the terror investigation in San Bernardino. Why the hell would he say that? He is investigating a multiple homicide.

I am beginning to suspect that we are being inoculated in preparation of the announcement that no charges will be recommended by the FBI.

This would, of course, would be ridiculous. No competent law enforcement officer can say that there has been no crime committed here. And those crimes are serious. The only question is how many.

If the FBI announces that no charges will be recommended, that will be the end of the disinterested, professional image of the entire organization. The Federal Bureau of Investigation will have sunk to the level of the IRS; drooling, political goons.

ID-100340891

First Hillary said she didn’t have a private email account for State Department work.

Then she said she did.

Then she laughed at a questioner and said that she didn’t use a private server for official business.

Then she said she did.

Then she said the server was none of anyone’s business and she would never give it up.

Later, she gave it up.

Before she gave it up, she said there were no official emails on the server.

Then she said there were.

Then she said no emails were deleted.

Then she said emails were deleted.

Then she said it is required that an official had to oversee the deletion of emails and she was that official. But she had been out of government for two years at that point, so she was not an official of any kind.

Very recently she said that IT people were in charge of erasing the emails.

Then she said her lawyers were in charge of erasing emails.

Then she said there was no classified information on the server.

Then she said there were no classified emails that were classified at the time she wrote/replied/forwarded them.

Then we found out that much of the info she tossed around was “classified at birth”. Highly classified imagery, communications from heads of state, etc.

Then she said none of that mattered because it was all linked back to the State Department server anyway. Which of course is only true if an addressee was at the State Department. Many of her State Department emails had no links to State servers.

Then she said she turned over all official documents.

Then she started using numbers of pages to try to impress us, thereby demonstrating that she did not turn over all official documents.

Then she said she didn’t slick the server to hide evidence.

Then we found out she did.

All along she insisted she gave up all official material.

Then the FBI found a pile of emails Hillary tried to destroy, thereby interfering AGAIN in an official investigation. Many of them highly classified.

None of this is conjecture. She has said all of it publicly.

In the course of all this, she lied about receiving a subpoena and repeatedly lied to investigators.

How far down this list do you think you or I would have gotten before being handcuffed and bounced off the hood of an FBI car while our house was torn to pieces?

As I’ve said before, the Clintons are like Peanuts’ Pigpen. They walk in a filthy cloud of corruption, character assassination, misanthropic arrogance and death.

Here’s an irony. As of last Friday, 6 Nov 15, polls said that there were still 28% of the population who would be proud to have her as president. As sickeningly high as that number still is, she’ll probably get an uptick now that she is blaming the Republicans for her crimes.
