Loretta Lynch says Comey lied when he claimed she told him to downplay Clinton email probe

Tough call on which lying hack you are to believe…

From Daily Mail: Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch told investigators she did not ask former FBI Director James Comey to refer to the Hillary Clinton email review as a ‘matter’ instead of an ‘investigation,’ according to a transcript released Monday night.

Comey claimed in his 2017 sworn testimony that Lynch ‘directed’ him to call the investigation a ‘matter’ during a September 2015 meeting.

The transcript of Lynch’s December 19, 2018 interview with a joint task force of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, which was released by Judiciary ranking member Doug Collins, clashes with what Comey testified under oath.

‘I did not. I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically. Never have, never will,’ Lynch told the congressional investigators, according to the transcript.

It is not clear if Lynch is only denying specifically directing Comey on what to say in his sworn testimony, or if she is also denying telling him how to refer to the investigation publicly or to the press.

Lynch has been accused of helping stifle any investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election. The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate faced scrutiny over her use of a private email account to conduct State Department business during her time as Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama.

The incident involving Lynch and Comey took place in the midst of the Clinton email review in September 2015, before the hearing where Comey was asked about the investigation.

Comey said in his 2017 statements that he had been ‘confused and concerned’ by Lynch’s request.

‘The attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me,’ Comey testified, adding it was one of the reasons he decided to ‘step away from the department’ so the case could be credibly closed.

‘The Clinton campaign, at the time, was using all kind of euphemisms – security review, matters, things like that, for what was going on,’ Comey continued.

Comey said he knew they were getting to a place in the investigation where they would both have to speak about it publicly. ‘And I wanted to know, was she going to authorize us to confirm we had an investigation?’ Comey said. ‘And she said, ‘Yes, but don’t call it that, call it a matter.’ And I said, ‘Why would I do that?’ And she said, ‘Just call it a matter.’’

When asked about Comey’s 2017 statements on the meeting during the congressional investigation last December, Lynch said she had been ‘surprised’ by his testimony.

‘I was quite surprised that he characterized it in that way,’ Lynch said. ‘We did have a conversation about it, so I wasn’t surprised that he remembered that we met about it and talked about it.’

‘But I was quite surprised that that was his characterization of it, because that was not how it was conveyed to him, certainly not how it was intended,’ she continued.

Perpetual victimhood: Hollyweird actress Jessica Alba stopped eating so she wouldn’t be “preyed upon” by men

Girl, you gotta stop sending mixed messages. As a strong female, shouldn’t you celebrate your ability to “enhance from within?”

And if you don’t want to be preyed upon….I suggest you leave Hollyweird, the avenue that has made you filthy rich. Typical liberal hypocrite…

From NY Post: Jessica Alba revealed she stopped eating so she wasn’t “preyed upon” by men in Hollywood.

The Honest Beauty founder said she was encouraged not to wear Pepe Jeans by her family as she was “voluptuous” and had a “booty.”

She said at Goop’s health summit: “I was meant to feel ashamed if I tempted men. Then I stopped eating a lot, when I became an actress. I made myself look more like a boy so I wouldn’t get as much attention.”

She added that she felt “preyed upon” by men when she was starting out, and added, “Nothing about being successful in this business is easy . . . You can’t be bitter.”

Alba is now happily married to Cash Warren and has three kids.

She famously dated now-disgraced “Bull” actor Michael Weatherly when she was 18 and he was 30.

Failure of Polls: 2019 Australia federal election

Political polls are no longer reliable because they are no longer predictive of election results.

The UK Brexit referendum on June 23, 2016, in which 51.9% of those voting supported leaving the EU, was the first sign. 78% of phone polls had predicted that Remain would win; only two online pollsters, Kantar TNS and Opinium, forecasted a Leave victory just ahead of the vote. (Wikipedia)

The U.S. presidential election on November 8, 2016, in which polls had predicted a Hillary Clinton win, was the second sign.

Last Saturday’s Australian federal election is the latest indicator of the failure of polls.

On May 18, 2019, Australia conducted a nation-wide election to elect members of the 46th Parliament: All 151 seats in the House of Representatives (lower house) and 40 of the 76 seats in the Senate (upper house).

Unlike many other democracies, Australia has mandatory voting for all citizens aged 18 and over – or they risk a fine. This year has seen a record 96.8% enrollment rate. In contrast, the voter turnout for the most recent US and UK elections were an estimated 55% and 69% respectively. (BBC)

What this means is that in the case of Australia, the accuracy of pre-election polls would not be affected by voter turnout, which should lend even greater confidence in the accuracy of those polls. As the BBC confidently declared a day before the election:

Australians are voting in a closely-fought general election on Saturday. The poll will decide whether the conservative Liberal-National Coalition wins a third term or is replaced by a Labor administration led by Bill Shorten.

And what were the polls saying?

The graph below shows that although opinion polls have narrowed in recent weeks, the leftist Australian Labor Party still had the edge on a two-party preferred basis on the eve of election day.

The experts also predicted a Labor win:

  • Professor Sally Young, a politics expert from the University of Melbourne, said there was public cynicism about the major parties, and predicted that the bitter party infighting that led to Scott Morrison becoming PM only last August, was likely to harm the government’s standing with voters. Referring to Morrison’s ousting of his predecessor, Young declared: “They’re sick of the sniping and undermining. Knifing a leader – it never goes down well.”
  • Young also predicted that climate change would be a key election issue and that the government’s “lack of action on climate change” would be a critical factor in the election.
  • Citing unnamed “experts,” the BBC said that Morrison’s minority government “fears losing votes to more socially conservative minor parties and independents” in the northern state of Queensland, and is particularly vulnerable in Victoria in the south, where the “progressive” electorate had delivered a resounding victory to Labor in a state election five months ago.

Despite the polls and experts, and in spite of Morrison’s minority coalition government being consistently behind in the polls for the past three years, the government won a third term against the Labor opposition. As Wikipedia puts it:

The result of the 2019 election was in stark contrast to the aggregation of opinion polls conducted over the period of the 45th parliament and the 2019 election campaign. Apart from a few outliers, Labor had been ahead for the entire period, by as much as 56% on a two-party-preferred basis after Scott Morrison took over the leadership of the Liberal Party in August 2018—although during the campaign, Labor’s two-party estimate was between 51 and 52%.[67]

During the ABC’s [Australian Broadcasting Corporation] election coverage, election analyst Antony Green stated “At the moment, on these figures, it’s a bit of a spectacular failure of opinion polling.”—with the election results essentially a mirror image of the polls with the Coalition’s two-party vote at around 51%.[67]

CNN calls the election “a stunning turnaround after every opinion poll over the campaign pointed to a Labor victory. Analysts are now saying Labor lost an ‘unlosable’ election.”

To add insult to injury, not only did the leftist Labor Party lose the election, the formerly minority coalition government led by Morrison actually picked up the net two-seat swing it needed for a majority government. (ABC News)

Readers of FOTM had commented that they no longer answer phone polls. Nor do I.

We no longer respond to political polls because of our correct perception that, like the MSM, pollsters favor Democrats and are hostile to conservatives. I suspect also that many who still respond to polls don’t give honest answers, which is a prudent behavior given the many real instances of conservatives being publicly assaulted, denied service by businesses, and having their food and drinks contaminated by servers.

The Guardian changes their language regarding global warming

As the left has been doing for years, when not content with facts regarding the hysteria of global warming, change the language to scare the masses.

The Guardian (a very, very left-leaning British newspaper) announced last week that they are changing the language they use about the environment. Their intention is to “more accurately describe the environmental crises facing the world.”

From their announcement:

“Instead of “climate change” the preferred terms are “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” and “global heating” is favoured over “global warming”, although the original terms are not banned.

“We want to ensure that we are being scientifically precise, while also communicating clearly with readers on this very important issue,” said the editor-in-chief, Katharine Viner. “The phrase ‘climate change’, for example, sounds rather passive and gentle when what scientists are talking about is a catastrophe for humanity.”

Other terms that have been updated, including the use of “wildlife” rather than “biodiversity”, “fish populations” instead of “fish stocks” and “climate science denier” rather than “climate sceptic”. In September, the BBC accepted it gets coverage of climate change “wrong too often” and told staff: “You do not need a ‘denier’ to balance the debate.”

Earlier in May, Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who has inspired school strikes for climate around the globe, said: “It’s 2019. Can we all now call it what it is: climate breakdown, climate crisis, climate emergency, ecological breakdown, ecological crisis and ecological emergency?”

What happened to #LoveTrumpsHate? Jim Carrey tweets drawing depicting Alabama governor being aborted

Yesterday Hollyweird libtard Jim Carrey tweeted the following in response to Alabama’s Gov. Kay Ivey signing the Alabama Human Life Protection Act:

“I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama.”

At least he’s admitting abortion kills someone.

As I’ve been saying for awhile, this guy needs to up his meds.

Feminist Jill Filipovic reacts to Alabama pro-life law: Cut ¼ inch off a man’s penis for every pregnancy!

Liberalism is way, way worse than a mental disorder.

The Left are evil.

Already hysterical over Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp’s signing of the fetal heartbeat bill into law, with has-been actress Alyssa Milano calling for a sex strike in protest, the Left are now foaming-in-the-mouth rabid over Alabama’s near-total ban on abortion.

Two days ago, on May 15, 2019, Alabama’s Republican governor Kay Ivey signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act— America’s most restrictive anti-abortion law that makes it a felony for doctors to perform or attempt to perform an abortion in the state. The new law allows no exceptions for rape or incest but does allow for abortions in cases where the mother’s life is at risk.

See DCG’s post on prominent pro-aborts’ reaction to Alabama’s new law, and my post, “Ohio Will Permanently Defund All 26 Planned Parenthood Clinics“.

Jill Filipovic, 35, is an avowed feminist, an attorney and writer. She’s a New York Times columnist, blogs at Cosmopolitan and The Huffington Post, and is the author of The H Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness who once asked American women to “divorce [their] Republican husbands” over now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Seven hours after Governor Ivey tweeted that she had signed the Alabama Human Life Protection Act into law, Filipovic posted this venomous and truly evil tweet:

Pregnancy and childbirth cause serious and permanent changes to many women’s bodies. Require that a quarter inch be cut off of a man’s penis for every pregnancy he creates and see how quick we are to force women to indelibly risk and chance their bodies.

Here’s a screenshot of Filipovic’s tweet in the event she takes it down:

Filipovic promptly followed her “cut off men’s penis” tweet with another one calling for men to be made incontinent and their pubic bones be fractured:

Honestly what if we just forced a quarter of men to be incontinent with every pregnancy they created? Fractured a third of their public [sic] bones for every child? That would be unconscionable. It’s also what’s pregnancy means for women.

Would you believe Filipovic actually has a husband?

In February 2018, she married Ty McCormich, a foreign correspondent who was the Africa editor at Foreign Policy magazine from 2015 to 2018.

Imagine his terror if he ever impregnates her.

Actress calls her abortion, “the best decision I have ever made”

I’ve never heard of this actress, Jameela Jamil. She’s a Brit who moved to the US to pursue her acting career. She’s also unaware of the definition of “inhumane.”

From Yahoo: Jameela Jamil disclosed she had an abortion after last week’s signing of a controversial six-week abortion ban in Georgia.

“I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made,” Jamil wrote on Twitter. “Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially. So many children will end up in foster homes. So many lives ruined. So very cruel,” she said of the ban.

Inhumane and cruel partial birth abortion

Signed last week by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, the so-called “heartbeat bill” outlaws abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. That’s usually when doctors can start to detect a fetal heartbeat, but it’s also before many women realize they are pregnant.

This anti-abortion law in Georgia is so upsetting, inhumane, and blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women, a disregard for our rights, bodies, mental health, and essentially a punishment for rape victims, forcing to carry the baby of their rapist,” wrote Jamil.

The actress, 33, also clarified that she was not criticizing foster care.

“Ps.. this isn’t any diss at ALL to foster homes. I’m in awe of people who take in children in need of a family and a home: but if Georgia becomes inundated with children who are unwanted or unable to be cared for, it will be hard to find great fostering for them all.”

 to your moms, your drag moms and everyone who celebrates you being YOU. 

Here’s the video:

Below are some tweets in response:

Reaper: “This is a man”

Mark Dice: “Maybe just sell chocolate chip cookies, and leave drag queens out of it.”

Saladino for Congress: “Thank you for helping me narrow down my cookie preferences. No more Chips Ahoy for me”

Matthew Leitner: “There will never be a chips ahoy product in my home. Ever.”

The Grumpy White Guy: “I know what’s hitting the trash can when I get home.”

Ross: “Thanks I’ll be vomiting every time I see a chips ahoy now, which is never”

Chris: “Well…no more Chips Ahoy for my house.”

Brent: “Chips ahoy will never see my money. In fact @nabisco should sell the brand because I’m about replace all of their products!”

Vanjie is not only a man in drag, he is a sodomite.

On May 11, 2019, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo (@VanessaVanjie) tweeted this:

Shoutout to all the dick suckers!!

Meanwhile, in related news, USA Today reports on April 17, 2019:

Bags of chewy Chips Ahoy! chocolate chip cookies are being recalled in the United States after an “unexpected solidified ingredient” has been found in some of them.

Mondelēz Global LLC, the parent company of Nabisco, released a recall notice for consumers on April 13 for the limited and voluntary recall of the cookies. Mondelēz Global has not specified what the solidified ingredient in the cookies is, but said there have been reports of potential adverse health effects.

The 13-ounce pack of cookies containing the UPC 044000032234 and use by dates on Sept. 7, Sept. 8, Sept. 14 and Sept. 15, should not be eaten. The dates are located on the top left of the packaging near the lift tab.

Anyone who may have purchased these chocolate chip cookies should not eat them and reach out to Mondelēz Global, which is headquartered in East Hanover Township, New Jersey.

I dread to think what the “unexpected solidified ingredient” is….
