Lindsey Graham claims we’ll soon know the ugly truth about Russian probe & it will be “damning” for intelligence communities

Well, if you got the goods sir, produce them NOW. Because I’m not going to hold my breath.

From Daily Mail: Republican senator Lindsey Graham said Sunday that the Inspector General’s report on how the investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia began will be ‘ugly and damning’ for the Department of Justice.

During an interview with Fox News, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Graham said the Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report is ‘going to be ugly and damning regarding the DOJ handling of the Russian probe.’

Graham said that Horowitz’s report is now expected to be released in the coming weeks and he is determined to have the report released so that the American people can find out what it says about the Russia probe.

When asked why the report, which was expected to have been submitted months ago, was delayed for so long, Graham said that ‘Every time you turn around you find something new.’

He added that ‘Mr. Horowitz is doing a very in-depth dive’ into how the FBI made use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in an effort to obtain a warrant allowing them to monitor Trump’s former campaign adviser Carter Page.

Graham said that when Horowitz submits his report, the DOJ will evaluate it for classified information, but that he wants to ‘declassify as much as possible. ‘I want the American public to hear the story, I want all this information to come out,’ Graham said. ‘I don’t want people to believe what I say about it, I want them to read for themselves how bad it was.’

Graham said he wants ‘people to see how off the rails this investigation got’ and that he wants ‘people to be held accountable.’

‘I am patient,’ Graham said. ‘I am not in a hurry, I want to do it right.’

Graham said that he wanted George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign staffer who pleaded guilty to making false claims to the FBI, to testify in front of his Senate Judiciary Committee after Horowitz’s report is released.

The senator said he believes that Papadopoulos’ interview transcripts reveal that he was ‘clearly’ not working with the Russians as has been claimed.

Papadopoulos is said to have been responsible for initiating the Russia probe by telling an Australian diplomat that he had heard that Russia had damaging information about Hillary Clinton. The diplomat was said to have alerted US officials about what the ex-campaign staffer said.

Graham also noted that he believe the FBI’s application for a FISA warrant was a ‘fraud on the court’ because the FBI relied in Christopher Steele’s dossier to get the warrant, even though Steele was, what Graham called, ‘an unreliable informant’ who disliked Trump.

New movie ‘The Hunt’ depicts liberal elites hunting Trump supporters for sport

In the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton won the bi-coastal “blue states”, whereas Donald Trump won the “red states” in the heartland — what the MSM call “fly over country” and liberal elites like Katie Couric call “this great unwashed middle of the country”.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, in a speech at an LGBT fundraiser in Manhattan on September 10, 2016, Hillary Clinton called Trump’s supporters “a basket of deplorables” who are “irredeemable” racists, homophobes and xenophobes.

Now there’s a movie depicting rich liberal elites hunting and killing “deplorables”.

On September 27, 2019, Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions will release an ultra-violent, R-rated “horror thriller” movie, The Hunt, depicting rich elites hunting Americans in fly-over red states like Arkansas, for sport.

The Hunt is produced by (((Jason Blum))), directed by (((Craig Zobel))), written by (((Damon Lindelof))) and Nick Cuse, and stars Hillary Swank, Emma Roberts, Betty Gilpin, and Ike Barinholtz.

Here’s the trailer, which ESPN pulled over the weekend because of the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings.

From Breitbart:

The film, which has been described as a gory satire featuring actresses Hilary Swank and Betty Gilpin, follows a group of elites who stalk and murder conservatives in red states. The hunters are fueled by their hatred of the “MAGA-type” characters and their right-leaning positions. While the term “deplorables” may not be explicitly stated in the trailer, Daily Mail notes that the “hunted” were, in fact, described as “deplorables” in the screenplay.

The film was originally called Red State Vs. Blue State,” the Daily Mail reports. 

It is not clear whether the filmmakers are sympathetic to the “Deplorables” or the “hunters.” Nevertheless, Blumhouse founder Jason Blum is a notorious Trump-hater who was booed off stage at the 32nd Israeli Film Festival in Los Angeles last year after blaming the president for the rise of anti-Semitism.

Hollywood Reporter quotes from The Hunt‘s screenplay:

“Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?” one character asks…. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “From a business perspective, The Hunt presents a gamble for Universal in these divided times.”

That’s because a similar movie — the so-called black comedy Assassination Nation, a 2018 movie written and directed by (((Sam Levinson))) — had bombed in the box office. Like The Hunt, Assassination Nation also pitted liberals against conservatives in very violent fashion. Although the movie represented the top sale at Sundance 2018 at $10 million, Assassination Nation fizzled upon its release, earning just $2 million with no international rollout. Says one person involved with that film, “We thought people would get the joke.”

Update (August 11, 2019)

Gateway Pundit reports that President Trump complained about The Hunt in a press conference on Friday, August 9, before leaving for vacation. He said: “Hollywood is racist.… what they’re doing with the kind of movies they’re putting out — it’s actually very dangerous for our country.”

The next day, August 10, Universal announced it was cancelling the film’s release in a statement that reads:

While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film. We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.

“Now is not the right time to release this film” suggests that Universal Pictures has every intentions to release the execrable The Hunt sometime in the future, probably straight to video.

Live feed of Robert Mueller testifying before Congress

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller is testifying before two House panels about the report on his two-year, $25 million investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, which found no evidence of any Trump collusion.

But that hasn’t stopped the mentally-ill Demonrat Left from their obsessive insistence of a Trump-Russia conspiracy. Nothing will.

Watch the live feed of the hearing at the New York Post, here.

New York Times blames Trump for journalists’ biased reporting

Note: This is a re-publish of a post that was originally published on August 16, 2016, but the post is lost after WordPress without warning took down Fellowship of the Minds on August 15, 2018. Fortunately, PaperBlog had reblogged the post, which enables me to re-publish it.

Chutzpah (definition): A Yiddish word derived from the Hebrew word (חֻוצְפָּה), meaning “insolence”, “cheek” or “audacity”.

A recent survey found that only 6% of Americans trust the media .

But the MSM have outdone even themselves in their coverage of the 2016 presidential election by abandoning all pretenses at being objective.

Now, the New York Times, the premier national U.S. newspaper, openly admits their abandonment of objective journalism in their coverage of Donald Trump and, in an act of unbridled chutzpah, they actually blame Trump for it, arguing that objective coverage only benefits his campaign by providing him with free publicity.

In an August 7, 2016 article titled ” Trump is Testing the Norms of Objectivity in Journalism ,” Jim Rutenberg, NYT ‘s mediator, writes:

If you’re a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies [Note how Rutenberg equates racism with nationalism or love of one’s nation ~Eowyn], that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him?

Because if you believe all of those things, you have to throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer,and approach it in a way you’ve never approached anything in your career.If you view a Trump presidency as something that’s potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you’ve ever been to being oppositional. That’s uncomfortable and uncharted territory for every mainstream, nonopinion journalist I’ve ever known, and by normal standards, untenable.

But the question that everyone is grappling with is: Do normal standards apply? And if they don’t, what should take their place? […]

But let’s face it: Balance has been on vacation since Mr. Trump stepped onto his golden Trump Tower escalator last year to announce his candidacy. For the primaries and caucuses, the imbalance played to his advantage, captured by the killer statistic of the season: His nearly $2 billion in free media was more than six times as much as that of his closest Republican rival.

To justify the media’s abandonment of journalistic objectivity, Rutenberg cites MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough:

Mr. Scarborough, a frequent critic of liberal media bias, said he was concerned that Mr. Trump was becoming increasingly erratic, and asked rhetorically, “How balanced do you have to be when one side is just irrational?”

Finally, Rutenberg justifies why journalists must abandon objectivity and fairness when it comes to Trump because they are simply saving Americans from what Rutenberg knows will be a horrible Trump presidency:

It would also be an abdication of political journalism’s most solemn duty: to ferret out what the candidates will be likein the most powerful office in the world.

It may not always seem fair to Mr. Trump or his supporters. But journalism shouldn’t measure itself against any one campaign’s definition of fairness. It is journalism’s job to be true to the readers and viewers, and true to the facts, in a way that will stand up to history’s judgment. To do anything less would be untenable.

In other words, it’s Donald Trump’s fault: He’s crazy, and so journalists shouldn’t be fair or objective in their reporting because their more important job is to prevent someone crazy like him to become President.

Rutenberg is simply saying what my erstwhile socialist friend Stephanie once said, in a fit of frustration after losing an argument: “I’ve made up my mind! Don’t confuse me with facts!”

Rutenberg’s version of Stephanie is:

“We journalists have made up our minds about Trump! There’ll be no objective reporting from us ’cause we don’t want to confuse you with facts!”

Just what we need: Celebrities lecturing us about the “truth about Trump collusion”

I made it through about a minute of this video. That’s about all I can take of self-righteous celebrities with TDS.

And if the “collusion” is there, why isn’t President Trump impeached yet? Why the wait? Huh?

Expect the delusional hysterics to continue well until 2020…

Hillary Clinton calls herself ‘Madam President’ in commencement speech

It is now more than 2½ years since she lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald John Trump, but Hillary Clinton is still bitterly in denial and still coveting the presidency.

Last Wednesday, May 29, 2019, Hillary was the keynote speaker at the commencement of more than 2,400 Hunter College students in New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

Hunter College is one of the constituent colleges of the public, i.e., taxpayer-funded City University of New York (CUNY), in Manhattan, NYC.

Hillary began her speech by referring to Hunter College President Jennifer J. Raab’s “Madam President” title to imply that she (Hillary Clinton) should be President of the United States. She said:

“Thank you, thank you so much. I have to say this has been one of the most inspiring heartfelt commencements that I’ve ever experienced, and I am thrilled, I’m thrilled to be a part of it today. [Turning to look at Hunter College president Raab] ‘Madam President’ — that has a nice ring to it!”

Hillary then used the rest of her speech to attack President Trump and to continue the fiction that Russia had interfered in the 2016 election.

You can hear/watch her entire speech here, if you insist on torturing yourself.

Jennifer J. Raab, 62, was appointed president of Hunter College in 2001 by then NY Mayor Giuliani, amid controversy and accusations of intimidation of the CUNY Board of Trustees because of Raab’s lack of doctoral degree (she has a law degree from Harvard). Raab is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Nevada’s Democrat governor vetoes bill to abolish Electoral College

Our Founding Fathers created a federal republic, wherein the national government shares political power with state governments, instead of a centralized political system like China or the United Kingdom where political power is in the central government, and whatever powers are exercised by regional and local governments have been delegated to them — and thus, can also be taken away — by the national government.

To enable and uphold the American federation, the Founders created the U.S. Senate, in which each constituent state is represented by two senators, no matter the size of the state’s population. The Electoral College is another institution to prevent presidential elections from being determined by states with very large populations.

Cognizant that human passions can descend into mob-like behaviors, the Founders had another reason for the Electoral College: to prevent a tyranny of the (irrational) majority. The Founders’ fear of majority mob-rule was borne out less than 3 years after they created the Electoral College in 1787 when the French Revolution plunged the country into a decade of chaos and bloodbath.

Still in denial that Hillary Clinton had lost the 2016 presidential election and convinced that she had secured a majority of the popular vote, Democrats are mobilizing to abolish the Electoral College via the National Popular Vote interstate compact. To date, 14 states and the District of Columbia have passed legislation to give their 189 Electoral College votes to whichever presidential candidate wins the popular vote. The pact will only take effect if states holding the majority of the Electoral College’s 538 electoral votes join the agreement.

On May 21, 2019, by a 12-8 vote, the Nevada State Senate passed a bill to give the state’s 6 Electoral College votes to the winner of the presidential election’s national popular vote. Earlier, Nevada’s State Assembly had passed the bill 23-17. The addition of Nevada would boost the National Popular Vote interstate compact’s electoral votes to 195.

Happily, Nevada’s Democrat governor Steve Sisolak, who is threatened with a recall petition, surprised his critics by doing the right thing.

Gov. Steve Sisolak

As reported by The Hill, yesterday, Governor Sisolak vetoed Assembly Bill 186 that would have pledged Nevada’s Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote.

Sisolak said in a statement:

After thoughtful deliberation, I have decided to veto Assembly Bill 186.

Once effective, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact could diminish the role of smaller states like Nevada in national electoral contests and force Nevada’s electors to side with whoever wins the nationwide popular vote, rather than the candidate Nevadans choose.

I recognize that many of my fellow Nevadans may disagree on this point and I appreciate the legislature’s thoughtful consideration of this important issue.

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.

Ruh roh: Ticket prices plunge for Bill & Hillary’s speaking tour

Guess folk are tired of hearing who Hillary is still blaming for her loss…

From NY Post: Tickets to the latest stop on Bill and Hillary Clinton’s speaking tour were going for as little as $20 on the secondary market as their 13-city adventure continued to struggle to find an audience.

The best seats in the house at Seattle’s WaMu Theater on Friday could be had for $829, a steep 54% drop from the $1,785 that the former first couple fetched when the tour was announced in early November.

But organizers soon had to slash listed prices and even offer discount ducats through Groupon to boost sales.

The official prices for Friday’s appearance ranged from $66.50 to $519, the Seattle Times reported.

“I really believe that we are in a crisis, a constitutional crisis,” Hillary Clinton opined during the 90-minute performance, presented as an interview of her and her husband by actor Bradley Whitford. “This is a test for our country.”

“These people, they don’t believe the same set of rules apply to them that apply to everyone else,” Bill Clinton said of the Trump administration.
