Justice moves very slowly for women in Washington state.
From MSN: More than 6,000 sexual assault kits that could potentially bring justice to thousands of rape victims in Washington state have not been tested, according to the state attorney general’s office.
The medical evidence kits contain biological samples collected from people who reported that they were assaulted. Authorities booked the kits into evidence but never submitted them to a crime lab for a DNA analysis.
“Sexual assault survivors deserve justice,” Ferguson said. “Each sexual assault kit tells a story from a survivor that must be heard.”
(Well, they eventually might see justice.)
Washington state is among numerous other places where untested sexual assault kits have piled up.End The Backlog, a nonprofit organization that aims to address the issue, estimates there are hundreds of thousands of untested kits in storage facilities across the country.
Ferguson has been working to address the problem in his state. Late last year, his office received a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to deal with the backlog. Since then, the office has received roughly $750,000, or one-quarter of the grant money, to conduct an inventory of the untested kits. The state legislature has also dedicated funding to the backlog.
The attorney general reported two types of rape kit backlogs. The first is the “unsubmitted” sexual assault kit backlog, which consists of kits that sit in evidence storage facilities because DNA analysis was never requested.
The second type of backlog occurs in crime lab facilities and involves “backlogged” sexual assault kits that have been submitted and are awaiting testing.
The kits could contain DNA from suspects who could be identified through the FBI’S national DNA database system. The central repository of DNA information contains biological evidence not only from sex offenders, but also from individuals arrested or convicted of federal offenses or other qualifying crimes, which vary by state.
The victim’s rape kit, which contained evidence collected in 2007, was not tested until last December. Between 2007 and now, prosecutors said, Bolar was able to commit additional “violent and sexually aggressive crimes,” according to the Times.
With backlogged rape kits now inventoried, Ferguson said his office will request the remainder of the federal grant money to pay for testing. Once the kits are tested, authorities can use DNA evidence to reopen cases, he said.
Testing the kits could “identify serial rapists, link cases across the country, provide critical links that could solve homicide cases and provide answers to victims and their families,” the attorney general’s office said.

Catherine Herridge reports for Fox News that former top FBI lawyer James Baker gave “explosive” closed-door testimony yesterday, Oct. 3, detailing for congressional investigators how Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe was handled in an “abnormal fashion” reflecting “political bias,” according to two Republican lawmakers present for the deposition — Rep. Mark Meadows (North Carolina) and Rep. Jim Jordan (Ohio).
James A. Baker, who as General Counsel of the FBI had a close working relationship with former FBI Director James Comey and was a recipient of at least one Comey memo, resigned from the bureau in May this year.
Meadows and Jordan would not provide many specifics about the private transcribed interview of James Baker, citing a confidentiality agreement with Baker and his attorneys. However, the two Congressmen indicated in broad terms that Baker was cooperative and forthcoming about the genesis of the Russia case in 2016, and about the FISA surveillance warrant application for Trump campaign aide Carter Page in October 2016.
Rep. Mark Meadows said, “Some of the things that were shared were explosive in nature.This witness [Baker] confirmed that things were done in an abnormal fashion. That’s extremely troubling.” Indeed, Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who opened the Russia case, FBI lawyer Lisa Page and others had sent politically charged texts, and have since left the bureau.
Rep. Jim Jordan said, “During the time that…DOJ and FBI were putting together the FISA (surveillance warrant)…prior to the election — there was another source giving information directly to the FBI, which we found the source to be pretty explosive.”
Meadows and Jordan would not elaborate on the source, or answer questions about whether the source was a reporter. They did stress that the source who provided information to the FBI’s Russia case was not previously known to congressional investigators.
Baker is at the heart of surveillance abuse allegations, and his deposition lays the groundwork for next week’s planned closed-door interview with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Baker, as the FBI’s top lawyer, helped secure the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on Page, as well as three subsequent renewals. Prior to the deposition, Republican investigators said they believed Baker could explain why information about Christopher Steele (the British ex-spy behind the concocted Trump-“golden shower” dossier) and Steele’s apparent bias against then-candidate Trump, was withheld from the FISA court, and whether other exculpatory information was known to Rosenstein when he signed the final FISA renewal for Page in June 2017.
For his part, Rosenstein is expected on Capitol Hill on Oct. 11 for a closed-door interview. It comes after the New York Times reported last month that he’d discussed secretly recording President Trump in order to remove him from office using the 25th Amendment.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Wednesday the meeting between Rosenstein and President Trump remains in limbo: “If there’s a meeting, we’ll let you know. But at this point, they continue to work together and both show up every day and do their jobs.”
A week ago on September 27, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) subpoenaed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for three documents. The deadline for Sessions to produce those documents is tomorrow.
In his letter notifying Sessions of the subpoena, Goodlatte wrote:
Given the [Justice] Department’s ongoing delays and/or refusal to produce these documents, I am left with no choice but to issue the enclosed subpoena to compel their production.
The Subpoena states that on October 4, 2018, at 12:00 p.m., Sessions is “hereby commanded to be and appear before the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives” to produce three documents “in un-redacted form”:
(1) The McCabe Memos: “All documents and communications” written by former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe “to memorialize discussions, meetings, or correspondence he had with senior government officials, including the President of the United States.
The McCabe Memos include:
Real-time debriefs from former FBI Director James Comey after his meetings with Trump.
A memo on the May 16, 2017 meeting where Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein allegedly suggested he would wear a wire to secretly tape President Trump, which would then be used to enlist Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. McCabe and former FBI counsel Lisa Page were among several people in the room. (Fox News)
Note:Michael Bromwich, who is now an attorney representing Christine Blasey Ford, Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, was Andrew McCabe’s attorney.
(2) The Woods File: includes (a) the application for a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) order authorizing surveillance on Carter Page; and (b) “any document concerning or relating to any attempt to verify the accuracy of any alleged facts stated in the FISA applications for Mr. Page.”
Carter Page is a petroleum industry consultant and a former foreign-policy adviser to Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. He has been a focus of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation into alleged links between Trump and Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.
(3) Russian interference: “All documents and communications shared with the Gang of Eight in May 2018 related to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.”
On May 24, 2018, FBI and Justice Department officials briefed the bipartisan group of lawmakers known as the “Gang of 8” on classified documents related to Special Counsel Mueller’s Russia investigation. The “Gang of 8” are:
Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Majority Leader.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Minority Leader.
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), House Speaker.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate Minority Leader.
Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Vice Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Rod Rosenstein, 53, a Republican, is the rat-face whom President Trump, on February 1, 2017, nominated to be the Justice Department’s Deputy Attorney General, and whom the Senate quickly confirmed on April 25, 2017.
The next month, in May 2017, Rosenstein authored a memo which President Trump said was the basis of his decision to dismiss FBI Director James Comey. Rosenstein then appointed special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election and related matters. Rosenstein also approved the raids on the home, office and hotel room of Trump attorney Michael Cohen.
The Deputy Attorney General is a political appointee of the President of the United Statesand takes office after confirmation by the Senate. According to the DOJ website:
The Deputy Attorney General advises and assists the Attorney General in formulating and implementing Departmental policies and programs and in providing overall supervision and direction to all organizational units of the Department. The Deputy Attorney General is authorized to exercise all the power and authority of the Attorney General, except where such power or authority is prohibited by law from delegation or has been delegated to another official. In the absence of the Attorney General, the Deputy Attorney General acts as the Attorney General.
Five days ago on Sept. 21, The New York Times reported that shortly after the dismissal of Comey, Rosenstein grew concerned about Trump’s fitness for office. Rosenstein suggested he could wear a wire to secretly tape conversations between himself and Trump, then use those recordings against the President by invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. The 25th Amendment provides for the removal of a sitting president if he or she is judged unfit to carry out the duties of the office.
Rosenstein strongly denied it, saying he was just being sarcastic in his reference to taping Trump. In response, Trump said he wasn’t sure what the deputy AG’s fate would be.
Two days ago, conservatives got all elated by talk of Rosenstein having resigned or being fired:
Citing sources, Axios reported that Rosenstein had anticipated being fired by President Trump, so he told White House chief of staff John Kelly he was resigning.
Bloomberg said Rosenstein actually had resigned and that his resignation had been accepted.
Pete Williams of NBC News, however, said Rosenstein was not going to resign but was on his way to the White House for a showdown to force Team Trump to fire him.
But the chatter all came to nothing. We are told that Rosenstein had not resigned and that he will meet with President Trump tomorrow.
That Rosenstein still has a job despite his plotting against Trump adds to conservatives’ frustration. Many of us repeatedly have asked why Trump hasn’t and seemingly won’t fire swamp creatures like Rosenstein.
Under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act, Trump has the power to appoint an acting AG if it’s a resignation. If he is fired, the process is murkier and governed by federal employment laws.
So I looked into this. Here is what I found.
To begin, firing federal workers is very difficult.
In an article for Politifact, Angie Drobnic Holan describes the process for firing or even disciplining federal government workers as “cumbersome” and “difficult”.
Paul Light, a professor of public service at New York University, said that out of a federal workforce of 1.86 million, “Very few federal employees — in the hundreds, not the thousands — are ever fired on the basis of poor performance. If you want to fire an employee, you’re taking on a task that is very intense and difficult, and biased in favor of protecting employees, and it can take a year or more to complete.”
Don Kettl, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, agreed that it’s too hard to fire poor performers and that few experts who study the issue would disagree: “The federal civil service is hamstrung by antiquated rules. We need to make it easier to fire poor performers.”
John Palguta of the Partnership for Public Service, a nonprofit that advocates for an improved federal workforce, said that when an employee is fired, there are a number of appeals processes available to fight a termination. Some of those processes probably could be streamlined, while keeping in place rules designed to protect employees from partisan politics because “It’s not supposed to be easy to fire federal workers for the wrong reasons.”
In 1999, when the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) undertook a study of poor-performing federal employees, the researchers had a difficult time even finding a statistically-significant sample of supervisors who had attempted to take action against a poor performer. The 42 supervisors whom the researchers found said it was hard to fire workers because of a lack of support from upper management, varying quality in technical guidance for completing the process, and reluctance to devote the time and energy needed to complete the cumbersome process. Many bosses got discouraged and gave up. The OPM report said:
Interviewees found the investment of time and energy required over an extremely long period to be daunting. This was compounded by the stress resulting from the employee’s counter-charges, grievances, accusations, appeals, general hostility and attempts to subvert the supervisor. One described the documentation required as ‘horrendous.’
In contrast, if a federal employee who is a presidential appointee resigns or quits, the President immediately can appoint a person to the vacated office “in an acting capacity” until a replacement candidate is nominated and confirmed.
According to the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998, if an officer of an executive government agency that requires presidential appointment with Senate confirmation (such as deputy attorney general of the Justice Department) dies, resigns, or is otherwise unable to perform office functions, the President is authorized to appoint a person temporarily to serve in the vacated office in an acting capacity for a period of 150 days, during which time the President is expected to nominate a replacement, with the advice and consent of the Senate.
The Federal Vacancies Reform Act makes no mention of what happens when an officer of an executive government agency that requires presidential appointment with Senate confirmation is fired. But common sense says that the very fact that Congress enacted this Act, to address cases when the federal appointee resigns, presumes that the procedure would be different if the appointee is fired.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Trump had to be warned by aides back in April not to fire Rosenstein. Others, such as Sean Hannity, also advised Trump against firing Rosenstein, claiming that such a move would open Trump to being impeached. Whatever the reason, despite, as NewsMax puts it, Rosenstein being “a frequent target of the president’s wrath,” the Federal Vacancies Reform Act makes clear why Rosenstein’s resignation would be preferable to him being fired.

From Fox News: The Portland City Council approved a $500,000 grant for potential deportees’ legal services, and Multnomah County is matching that amount.
A city official told Fox 12 that the funding, which is being called the “Universal Representation Project,” is for illegal immigrants aliens and refugees who may not be able to afford an attorney during legal proceedings.
The grant money will go to Catholic Charities of Oregon, which will use the funds to hire attorneys and paralegals to represent potential deportees.
The Oregonian reported that the $500,000 from Portland will be drawn from the city general fund, which primarily pays for police, fire and parks operations.
On “Fox & Friends” on Sunday, former ICE supervisor Jason Piccolo said this move makes absolutely no sense.
He noted that the Justice Department already provides a legal orientation program that gives lawyers training so they can represent illegal immigrants aliens pro bono.
“Every time an alien is encountered and arrested by ICE or through the Border Patrol, they’re provided a list of legal services, pro bono,” Piccolo said. “So, using taxpayer-funded money does not make any sense.”
Piccolo argued that this is just a political move that’s being made for the anti-President Trump, anti-ICE optics.
“Anything that counters President Trump is what the Democrats are going to do,” he said.
Portland city commissioner Chloe Eudaly has defended the legal funding, saying:
“Providing access to legal services is about protecting everyone’s constitutional right to due process(unless you’re Brett Kavanaugh). This is one of the most fundamental components of our democracy and every American regardless of immigration status should be proud to defend this value.”
If anyone can fix the demorat corruption in Chicago, it’s certainly a Daley 🙂
Bill Daley is the youngest child of former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley (1955 to 1976) and his brother Richard M. Daley is was mayor of Chiraq from 1989 to 2011. His father and brother were part of the Chicago political machine for over 40 years.
Bill served as the White House Chief of Staff to Obama from January 2011 to January 2012. He also served as US Secretary of Commerce from 1997 to 2000 under Bill Clinton. He’s well-versed with the demorat political machine.
Chicago has a long history of political corruption and has been under demorat “leadership” since 1931. That’s 87 years of failed leadership.
During the demorat’s reign, the city has developed many, many, many problems. Here’s a few of them:
Gun Violence:We all know how bad the gun violence is in Chiraq because their violent crime rate is higher than the US average. Chicago was responsible for nearly half of 2016’s increase in homicides in the US, though the nation’s crime rates remain near historic lows. In 2017, Chicago’s homicides outnumbered US military casualties 18:1.
Police Corruption: In January 2017, the DOJ announced that it had found reasonable cause that the Chicago Police Department (CPD) engaged in a pattern or practice of using force, including deadly force, in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. The department found that CPD officers’ practices unnecessarily endanger themselves and result in unnecessary and avoidable uses of force.
City Budget Deficit: This summer, Chicago faceda nearly $98 million gap in its upcoming operating budget.
Pension Deficit: The city has$28 billion in underfunded contributions it owes to its pension systems. The city is considering borrowing $10 billion on bonds to pay for what they can’t afford. That’s liberal logic for you.
Does anyone really believe that electing another Daley will help Chicago solve the multiple crises they face?
MyFoxChicago reports that Bill Daley will announce soon that he plans to enter the mayor’s race. There are more than a dozen candidates running for mayor and Rahm isn’t one of them.
Good luck Chicago…you’re going to need it!

In September 2016, the FBI’s New York Field Office (NYO) and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) began investigating former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) for his online relationship with a minor. Weiner is the husband of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin.
On September 26, 2016, a federal search warrant was obtained for Weiner’s iPhone, iPad, and laptop computer. The FBI obtained these devices the same day. The search warrant authorized the government to search for evidence relating to the following crimes: transmitting obscene material to a minor, sexual exploitation of children, and activities related to child pornography.
We were told that the laptop contained thousands of emails and documents from Hillary’s illegal private server, some of which are top-secret classified information.
Coleman told us that he kept regularly took notes in a journal. Coleman’s notes from October 4 contained the following entry:
(1) Anthony Wiener [sic]
(3) Wiener [sic] – texting 15 yo – Sexually Explicit
9/26 – Federal SW – IPhone/IPAD/Laptop
Initial analysis of laptop – thousands emails
Hillary Clinton & Foundation
Crime Against Children
We asked Coleman about these notes and he told us that, given their placement in his notebook, the notes would most likely represent information he was briefed on first thing in the morning by his subordinates in the Criminal Investigative Division. Coleman stated that he may have passed this information to other FBI executives after the morning briefing with the Director, but he could not remember if that occurred here.
Coleman is Randall Coleman, executive assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services Branch. (FBI News)
Here’s a screenshot I took of p. 294:
The placement of the phrase “Crime Against Children” beneath “Hillary Clinton & Foundation” implies that “crime against children” is by the Clinton Foundation.
In the latest manufactured crisis by the Left, we are inundated by the media with denunciations of President Trump’s evil “policy of separation of families”.
The Catholic Church’s clergy also jumped into the fray, ignoring the Left’s sacrosanct “separation of church and state” dictum.
As an example, the morbidly obese Bishop Patrick McGrath of San Jose, CA, calls the separation of detained minor children from their illegal-alien parents “un-American, un-Christian and inhumane,” “mean-spirited and betrays our nation’s tradition of welcome to migrants and refugees.”
What the media lackeys and politicized clergy won’t tell you is this: There is no Trump “policy” of separating families.
By law, people caught illegally crossing our borders must be incarcerated. Some of those illegal border crossers are adults with children. What the jackals of the Mainstream Media call “separation of families” is actually the Trump administration enacting a measure that flowed from the Clinton-era Flores vs. Reno Supreme Court decision which the Obama administration had refused to enforce. Flores vs. Reno stipulates that unaccompanied illegal border-crossing minors be held “in the least restrictive setting appropriate to the minor’s age and special needs.” When the adults are incarcerated, our government must house, feed, clothe and take care of their children — at a cost to taxpayers of more than $1 billion a year. The alternative is to jail the children with the adults.
In reality, the vast majority of illegal-entry children in detention came across the border by themselves.
As Attorney General Jeff Sessions explains in an op-ed in USA Today on June 19, 2018:
Some years ago, it was decided that law enforcement might arrest adults who crossed the border illegally by themselves, but anyone who brought a child with them would not be prosecuted, a form of immunity. Word got out about this loopholewith predictable results. The number of aliens illegally crossing with childrenbetween our ports of entry went from 14,000 to 75,000 — a fivefold increase — in just the past four years.
These trends undermine the integrity of our system. That’s why the policy that is causing them must end, too. Ending this blanket immunity means prosecuting adults for illegal entry whether they have children with them or not. That is what we are doing at the Department of Justice. But we will not put the children in jail. Instead, the children must be cared for by the Department of Health and Human Services, as the law requires.
And these children are well cared for. In fact, they get better care than a lot of American kids do. They are provided plenty of food, education in their language, health and dental care, and transported to their destination city — all at taxpayer expense.
In total, HHS is spending more than one billion taxpayer dollars a year providing quality care.
Separations are temporary and rare. The vast majority of children in custody came to this country by themselves.
… If people have a genuine asylum claim, they can come to a port of entry, make their claim legally, and remain with their children while their case is processed. We do not want to separate parents from their children. What we want is a safe, lawful system of immigration that would end this question altogether. We want to build a wall to prevent illegal entry. Congress could make that happen quickly — and they should.
The media are calling the detention centers “concentration camps”. But The Daily Caller points out that “Photos of border detention facilities from the Obama-era, taken during 2014,look nearly identical to the ones taken during the Trump era. You never see them, however.”
Whipped into a frenzy by the fake-news media and goaded on by deceptive Catholic clergy like Bishop McGrath, the Left are becoming unhinged before our very eyes.
(1) Has-Been Actor Peter Fonda
In an all-caps tweet today, actor Henry Fonda, 72, calls President Trump a “giant asshole” and says 12-year-old Barron Trump should be be ripped from his mother Melania’s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles:
“WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT ASSHOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO.”
The Daily Caller reports that First Lady Melania has notified the Secret Service about Peter Fonda’s threats against her son.
Fonda’s terrorist threat is only the latest in a series of Twitter threats against White House officials, particularly females and children:
In a tweet yesterday, calling Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen a “gash” — a slang word for female genitalia — Fonda calls for the public caging and rape of Nielsen: “Kristjen Nielsen is a lying gash that should be put in a cage and poked at by passersby. The gash should be pilloried in Lafayette Square naked and whipped by passersby while being filmed for posterity.”
In another tweet, Fonda calls Press Secretary Sarah Sanders a “gash” — a term that Fonda admits is “much worse than cunt” — and urges that Sanders’ three children be kidnapped and locked in a basement: “SS (Sarah Sanders) is a lying gash, too. “And ‘gash’ is much worse than cunt. Maybe we should take her children away and deport her to Arkansas, and giving her children to Stephen Goebbels Miller for safe keeping.”
Sony Pictures is releasing a movie, Boundaries, starring Fonda in a matter of days. Be sure you boycott the movie and any other movie or TV Peter Fonda is in.
(2) Has-Been Actor Tom Arnold
For his part, actor Tom Arnold also tweeted a threat against Barron, calling for protesting the boy’s school so as to make Barron “uncomfortable”:
Meanwhile, the terrorist group Antifa is going after ICE (Immigration and Custom Enforcement) agents.
Yesterday, Sam Lavigne of the Twitter account “nebraska antifa” sent out a tweet to its followers which links to a list ICE officers, with their names, titles and locations. (InfoWars)
(4) Florida man Laurence Key
Laurence Key of Stuart, Florida was arrested Tuesday after threatening to kill Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) and his three young children over the Trump administration’s immigration policy. Key reportedly phoned Rep. Mast’s D.C. office on Monday, warning the intern who received the call that he was going to “find the congressman’s kids and kill them,” say court documents filed in U.S. District Court. (Breitbart)
The Left’s terrorist tactics worked.
This afternoon, admitting that the media’s images of detained children made it difficult, President Trump caved and signed an executive order ending his administration’s “separating” illegal migrant children from their parents at the border, by expanding the time that minors could be held in custody, which would allow families to remain together. (New York Post)
Peter Fonda should be arrested.
It is a federal crime, USC 18.41 Sec. 875(c), punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, to transmit any communication containing a threat to injure the person of another, via the Internet and e-mail (as well as the telephone, beepers, and other means of communication).

And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judgment—wickedness was there, in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
I said to myself, “God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed.”

Breitbart: The Nuclear Option: Rod Rosenstein the Face of the Swamp
by Charles Hurt – 13 Jun 2018
However bad you thought it was, it really is so much worse.
However rotten and ungovernable you thought the federal swamp was, it really is so much worse…
…Behold, Rod Rosenstein, the very face of the swamp Leviathan.
…Mr. Rosenstein, one of the most powerful men in the Department of Justice, threatened to investigate members of Congress and their staff if Congress continued to fulfill its constitutional responsibility to oversee the increasingly rogue federal department.
Move over J. Edgar Hoover. Rod Rosenstein has officially taken your place as the most power-drunk, nefarious, crooked blight on justice to ever preside in the Department of “justice…”
