One thing that came out of today's witch hunt really stuck with me. It took a bit for it to really sink in, which I'm sure is why it done in a step by step manner with Comey. I don't recall who was doing the questioning. It dealt with what was clearly fake news about classified information. Of course, Comey won't discuss actual cases, so it's all about a hypothetical. It basically goes like this...
1) an anonymous source gives the NYT a scoop on "classified information". Of course, it's completely bogus information to smear an intended target. Given that no classified information was actually given out, no crime has been committed.
2) the FBI, etc. has a policy to not publicly comment on classified information, even if it's completely bogus.
3) behind closed doors, in a classified discussion, it's pointed out that the news story in question is in fact 100% bogus. Of course, this is classified, so it is now illegal for the congresscritters involved in this discussion to mention that the news story in question is 100% bogus.
4) so the only people who know the truth about the bogus news story are sworn to keep it secret. And of course the person who put the story out in the first place.
So a dishonest person can "leak" a bogus story (Trump colluding with the Russians?) and claim it to be classified. Sounds official enough. Intelligence agencies won't comment on classified material, even made up stuff. When discussed behind closed doors, they can say it's completely bogus, but that information is now classified, and cannot be made public. It's quite the way to scam our entire system. It was made clear that this is happening frequently in today's news. Comey came right our and said that he wished there was a mechanism in place to combat this sort of misinformation, but there simply isn't.
"'Hypocrite' comes from the Greek word 'hypokrites', which means "an actor." The word hypocrite ultimately came into English from the Greek word hypokrites, which means “an actor” or “a stage player.”"
It's all just for show, folks. Actors are like peanut helmets. They look cool to some people, they're pretty much useless, they don't generally conform to the law, and they don't usually have their own opinions - just trendy quotes, stickers, and flair plastered all over them.
I was watching today. He absolutely CRUSHED Durbin! He crushed Durbin so badly that Durbin actually interrupted, saying that his time had run out. The rules were explained... Again... That time will be allowed to answer any question asked.
I was proud to no longer be represented by that POS! Ourdee, congratulations! I still feel the need to apologize every time someone asks where I moved from. Once I pay my income tax to Illinois next month, my move will be 100% complete! Couldn't be happier!
I've watching each and every hour of the questioning of Judge Neil Gorsuch today.
He's one of the most impressive and scary smart people I have ever seen.
Folks, who pale in comparison on an intellectual level, have insulted him, his background and thrown every sling and arrow in their quiver at him.
He is honest, ethical, smart and unflappable. He's made them look like ill informed fools.
I note that he has not touched a device once during the day nor have his Law Clerks seated behind him. But, in the row behind the assembled Senators there are a collection of young interns tap, tap, tapping away.
These are the folks . . . I'd suggest . . . who will likely spend their live working for others.
So tonight's local news (I live near DC) - a 14 year old girl in Montgomery County public schools was (allegedly) raped.
By an undocumented (ILLEGAL) 18 year old.
In the public school system.
Apparently it is LEGAL for the public schools to teach students...REGARDLESS of citizenship. The Supreme Court ruled in 1982 that it is "unconstitutional" for public schools to even ASK a student's status.
W. T. F.
Oh, and the 18 year old illegal in this case? Entered illegally 7 months ago and had an alien removal case pending.
And (this is on the news as I type) the superintendant is hollering about how "unfair" it is to try and deny someone the "right to learn because they speak a different language".
If our "educators" don't even understand what's going on...there's no surprise that NOBODY ELSE gets it.
You aren't "denying the right to learn because they speak a different language".
You're keeping someone who's NOT EVEN A FVKING CITIZEN from absorbing MY tax dollars, in MY school system. "Constitutional" doesn't even come into play here - THEY'RE NOT CITIZENS.
Nevermind the fact these open border people are too stupid to realize it's THEIR MONEY that's paying for these illegals to get away with this crap.
Step one, we need to repeal that Supreme Court decision. Somebody needs to point out that "constitutional" only applies to...CITIZENS. You want it to apply to you? BECOME A CITIZEN. Do the work. Pass the tests. PAY YOUR TAXES. Once you do that...THEN you get to reap some rewards. Not before.
Intel Chairman Devin Nunes: President-Elect Trump Was Under Surveillance By 0bama Intel Community By Sundance, 03/22/2017
The House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes, held a brief press conference (video also included below) at approximately 1:00 pm EDT and stated he has been provided intelligence reports brought to him by unnamed sources[,to] include ‘significant information’ about President-Elect Trump and his transition team.
1.) On numerous occasions the [0bama] intelligence community incidentally collected information about U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition.”
2.) Details about U.S. persons associated with the incoming administration, details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value were widely disseminated in intelligence community reporting.
3.) Third, I have confirmed that additional names of Trump transition members were unmasked.
4.) Fourth and finally, I want to be clear: none of this surveillance was related to Russia, or the investigation of Russian activities, or of the Trump team.
The House Intelligence Committee will thoroughly investigate surveillance and its subsequent dissemination, to determine a few things here that I want to read off:
- Who was aware of it?
- Why it was not disclosed to Congress?
- Who requested and authorized the additional unmasking?
- Whether anyone directed the intelligence community to focus on Trump associates.
- And whether any laws, regulations or procedures were violated?
I have asked the Directors of the FBI, NSA and CIA to expeditiously comply with my March 15th letter - that you all received a couple of weeks ago - and to provide a full account of these surveillance activities.
I'm reading plenty of educated online opinions that B0 (and his many minions) may have actually spied on M/M Trump during, um, private moments between the two of them. Remember in one of P45's tweets where he called B0 a "bad (or sick) guy!"?
