MUELLER MUST BE STOPPED TO PROTECT US ALL

team-deep-stateThe “Deep State” is in a deep state of desperation.

It is hard to see how a yearlong investigation of this won’t come down hard on former FBI Director James Comey and perhaps even former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who definitely wasn’t playing mahjong in a secret “no aides allowed” meeting with former President Clinton on a Phoenix airport tarmac.

With little time left before the Justice Department inspector general’s report becomes public, and with special counsel Robert Mueller having failed to bring down Donald Trump after a year of trying, they know a reckoning is coming.

With this report on the way and congressional investigators beginning to zero in on the lack of hard, verified evidence for starting the Trump probe, current and former intelligence and Justice Department officials are dumping everything they can think of to save their reputations.

Here’s how that is backfiring.

HOW JAMES COMEY AND JOHN BRENNAN RESTARTED THE COLD WAR TO PROTECT THEMSELVES

im-seth-richOn December 29, 2016, the Obama Administration – with three weeks remaining in its term – issued harsh sanctions against Russia over supposed election interference.  Two compounds in the United States were closed and 35 Russian diplomats were ordered to leave the country.

Russia responded by calling the actions “Cold War déjà vu.”

In the two years that have elapsed since, it has been learned that the “intelligence” that formed the basis for the sanctions was beyond dubious.

As a dog that chases its tail, the fake “intelligence” was being used to cause the investigation which itself lent credibility to the notion of Russian interference.

James Comey’s FBI and John Brennan’s CIA thumbed the eye of an armed nuclear state based on false intelligence.  Why?

THE MESS ROSENSTEIN MADE

fire-rosensteinMany liberals and critics are under the mistaken belief that President Trump is violating the rule of law and civil liberties by criticizing the Robert Mueller investigation and by ordering the Justice Department’s Inspector General to investigate whether or not the FBI spied on his 2016 presidential campaign.

In fact, the president is behaving totally lawfully, and it is Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who are acting unconstitutionally and who are violating Trump’s civil liberties.

As I explained in the Wall Street Journal last week (5/13), Robert Mueller’s appointment is unconstitutional under Chief Justice Rehnquist’s majority opinion in Morrison v. Olson. In this investigation, Mueller is acting like a U.S. attorney, who is a principal officer and who must be nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

The unconstitutionality of Mueller’s appointment renders everything he has done since May 17, 2017, unconstitutional as well.

DEMOCRATS’ TDS DOOMS THEIR BLUE WAVE

who-has-trump-hurt[Note by JW – When even Karl Rove denounces Trump Derangement Syndrome, of which he was once afflicted, you know the Trump Takeover of the GOP is nearing completion.]

State Rep. Stacey Abrams’s victory in Tuesday’s (5/22) Georgia Democrat primary is historic: She’s the first black woman to win a major party’s nomination for governor in any state.

But it’s also an example of the gamble Democrats are taking this midterm season.

Unlike most Democrat candidates for statewide office in the South, Ms. Abrams shows little interest in appealing to independents or disaffected Republicans. She blames the Georgia Democrats’ poor showing in 2014 on efforts to appeal to what she calls the “very middle of the road.”

Is support from the Democrats’ “Resistance” base enough to carry her to the governor’s mansion?  In a state that has a GOP Governor, both Senators, 10 out of 14 Members of Congress, and which Trump won by 211,000 votes in 2016?

POMPEO PRESENTS THE TRUMP DOCTRINE

trump-doctrineSecretary of State Mike Pompeo’s speech Monday (5/21) at the Heritage Foundation marked a pivotal moment in U.S. foreign policy.

Pompeo made several important arguments in the course of his half hour address, in which he set out President Donald Trump’s policy regarding Iran in the wake of his May 8 announcement that he is abandoning Barack Obama’s 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.

The key line in his speech was, inarguably, “As President Trump said two weeks ago, he is ready, willing and able to negotiate a new deal [with Iran]. But the deal is not the objective. Our goal is to protect the American people.”

The basic insight that there is no intrinsic value to any agreement – or foreign policy initiative of any sort – that does not advance the interests of the United States or protect the American people is striking, because it has been absent from American foreign policy in relation to rogue regimes and entities for better part of the last generation.

Welcome to the Trump Doctrine.  It is brilliant in its simplicity and straightforwardness.

THE SINGLE POTUS JOKE GUARANTEED TO MAKE THE LEFT GO FULL BERSERK

President Trump has a great since of humor. He is a master at pushing the Left’s buttons. What is suggested here is that he video tape a mock press conference to make a faux announcement, and put it up on YouTube.

Perhaps the greatest weakness of the Left is that they have no sense of humor. Their constant state of outrage renders them utterly humorless. A rule of their idol Saul Alinsky was to use ridicule as a political weapon – yet they can’t stand to be ridiculed themselves.

Here is a joke that wouldn’t just poke the Left in the ribs, but gut punch the Left’s cultural solar plexus. To watch their minds explode would be gloriously rewarding.

Please, Mr. President – go Full Alinsky on the Left. Ruthlessly ridicule the Left with this:

HALF-FULL REPORT 05/18/18

hug-the-president It was “The Hug Seen ‘Round the World.”

On Tuesday (5/15), President Trump spoke at the 37th Annual National Peace Officers Memorial Service at the US Capitol in Washington.  The link is to the full text of his heart-warming address, in which he pledged that his presidency’s policy is “to protect those who protect us.”  I encourage you to read it entire.

Yet the reaction to it, as with so much else the President did this week, exemplifies a main theme of this week’s HFR – that the party affiliation of “D” no longer stands for Democrat.  Rather, D now stands for Delusional.  Which means we must talk about her:

ate-goddess Quite a revelatory week – let’s get started.

HIDDEN CENTRAL ASIA

The Registan - Samarkand

The Registan - Samarkand

Central Asia.  The very words evoke the ultimate in the remote, the exotic, the unknown full of wonders.

Here you will find the ancient cities of the Silk Road still in all their splendor, and one of the glitziest cities you’ll ever see built yesterday in the middle of nowhere. Here you will find the Mountains of Heaven, the Door of Hell, and the Seven Pearls of Shing.

An enormous area in the center of the Eurasian continent – larger than India at 1.5 million square miles – the “Five Stans” of Central Asia were once part of the Soviet Union. Now independent, each is different, fascinating in its own way.  While most all world travelers dream of visiting all five, few do.  What’s more, those few that do rarely experience the coolest places in each.

That’s what we’re going to do in September.  Ready?  Here we go.  And, okay – this is the Door to Hell:

Darvaz Gas Crater – the Door to Hell

DONALD TRUMP IS A BLACK SWAN

Frblack-swanom its start, the Trump administration has been plagued by charges of “chaos.”

From the revolving door of senior staffers — including two secretaries of state, three national security advisers and two chiefs of staff — to the president’s brash and sometimes boorish personal style, to his politically incorrect taunt-tweeting, Donald Trump has refused to conform to his political opponents’ conventional notions of what constitutes an effective White House operation.

Yet, because Trump is such a Black Swan, his has been the most effective administration since FDR’s first term.

And it’s being accomplished in the teeth of the so-called “Resistance,” which includes the overt hostility of nearly all the mainstream media, the embedded civil service, the Democrats, the never-Trump Republicans, rogue elements of the intelligence and investigative agencies, and Robert Mueller’s witch hunt regarding charges of “collusion” with the Russians.

DEMOCRAT HYSTERIA HELPS TRUMP

democrat-hysteriaIf you want to understand why Donald Trump is President today (and why he could very well win a second term), look to the Democrats' hysterical response to two of Trump's major foreign policy achievements over the past week.

Last Thursday (5/10), the President traveled to Joint Base Andrews to greet three American hostages whose release he had secured from North Korea. Unlike his predecessor, Trump did it without sending the offending regime an unmarked plane loaded with hundreds of millions in hard currency.

The return of these American captives should have been a moment of celebration and bipartisan unity. So how did Democrats respond? By blasting Trump for the way he welcomed the U.S. hostages home.

Seriously? How do Democrats take a positive event such as the release of American hostages and turn it into an excuse to attack Trump?  Are they so deranged with hate they can’t see their behavior helps Trump, not hurts him?
