Now Trump can go on the offensive

The Trump administration, fresh off of the vindication with the release on Thursday of  Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report that no Russian collusion nor obstruction of justice charges were warranted, can now get back to the business of government change.

While the radical Democrats in the House will continue to double down on their delusional aim of bringing impeachment charges against the president, it will however get no traction in the Senate.

But what else can Nancy Pelosi and Jerry Nadler do? They have no viable candidate for 2020, as the party careens further and further left with Bernie Sanders and the young bloods getting all the ink.

The administration has three blockbuster reports coming out, which could render the Democratic Party to the trash bin of history in the end.

  • First, would be the unredacted FISA warrant applications, which will show how the Obama administration used a partisan, Hillary Clinton campaign opposition research report to spy on American citizens.
  • Second, is the Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on how the Justice Department led by Loretta Lynch perverted the rule of law to help the Clinton campaign during the election.
  • Lastly, is Federal prosecutor John Huber’s investigation into the Clinton campaign’s misuse of private computer servers housing classified files and then destroying them to cover up the crime.

Once these reports are released along with the indictments for leaking  classified intelligence information by ranking House members the Democratic Party may poll less than the Libertarian candidate or other third-parties. That’s how devastating these reports will be.

The timing on the release is key since the Trump White House wants to take back the House in 2020. It can’t be too soon as Americans have a short attention span when it comes to politics.

But it will come over the summer and it will be monumental.

Barr brings the goods to press conference

Attorney General Bill Barr reiterated with further details that there was no collusion or obstruction of justice.

While Democrats across DC labored arguments over whether Barr should even be holding the press conference before the release. Also crowing about Barr showing the Mueller Report to White House counsel.

Both of Barr’s actions were lawful and above-board by precedent.

Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler picking up on Barr stating he would be okay with Special Counsel Robert Mueller testifying before Congress, has requested that Mueller show up before May 24.

Now it appears the real Democratic caterwauling will start soon after its 11AM release over what Barr referenced of 10 circumstances where there was gray area regarding obstruction.

To shutdown that argument is very simple. Since there was no collusion then there was no crime, so how can you obstruct justice in an investigation that had no crime.

A stance President Trump has taken from the start.

What to expect from alt-left media at 9:31 AM Thursday

So what can we expect at 9:30 AM Thursday when Attorney General Bill Barr ans Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein take to the podium to release the redacted Mueller report?

I assume the Democrats have already put their talking points out with the alt-left media on how many instances Special Counsel Robert Mueller questioned behavior of the Trump administration in matters covering Russian collusion and/or obstruction of justice.

Remembering of course that Mueller recommended no charges be brought by the Attorney General. Also that Barr AND Rosenstein agreed with the Mueller findings.

Rosenstein was the Justice Department official who offered to were a wire when meeting with the President in 2017 to gather evidence to remove Trump under the 25th Amendment. So he is no fan or lackey.

By 9:31 AM you will have alt-left commentators screaming about the X number of times Mueller suggests this act was questionable or that statement was not totally upfront and honest.

The only defense any administration personnel needs for this charge is to say, “The US government was spying on its citizens, so to say that testimony is not honest is because the Obama administration has tapes of what I said all those many months ago,”

And continue with “If the government did not violate my Fourth Amendment protections, then none of this investigation could have happen.”

Drop the mic and walk away.

I’ll be back with my thoughts later this morning.

Will Mueller’s report show collusion by the Democrats? Probably not

On Thursday we are supposed to get Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report on the Trump’s campaign’s alleged Russian collusion.

I have a sense it will be pushed back to Good Friday to dampen the impact for the Democrats since there is no smoking gun.

Two years and multiple millions in costs, Mueller’s non-partisan team has already concluded that there was no collusion or obstruction of justice by the Trump campaign or administration.

We know now the whole probe into this specious charge was the Fusion/GPS report written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele working with Nellie Ohr, wife of Justice Department executive Bruce Ohr.

The Steel report was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign through their law firm Perkins Coie.

The Clinton campaign and members of the Obama administration working with “friendly” journalists leaked the dossier to get more “evidence” to present to the FISA court in order to get warrants to spy on American citizens.

We probably will not hear about any of this from Mueller’s report. We will not hear about the spying on Americans such as Carter Page, George Papadopoulos nor  Lt. Gen Michael Flynn. There will be no mention of the bugging of Trump Tower just before the 2016 election.

We also will not hear how perverted this whole investigation was. In America you are allowed to investigate a crime. In the dossier case, they investigated presidential candidate Donald Trump looking for a crime. It’s the basic premise and protection afforded all of us under the Fourth Amendment that was violated.

While the first draft of history is usually wrong, I have a sense this first take on Russian collusion will be so spectacularly biased that it will not be worth anything at all except to give testimony to how slanted the media is to this president.

Remember, last week we had the Attorney General of the United States tell a Congressional panel — under oath — that he believes that the president-elect of the United States was spied upon by the Obama administration.

Anybody remember the blaring headlines when that story broke? Were you aghast when you saw the unusual six column, two deck headline across the top of the Washington Post or New York Times?

Of course not. They buried the story inside the paper, very small.

Whenever the report is released, there is no smoking gun. I’ll bet there is plenty of innuendo though that the media will jump on to blunt the force of the report that no collusion or obstruction occurred.

However innuendo cannot be prosecuted. If you could, there would be no one in Congress to react to the story.

Razing Notre Dame during Holy Week has broader meaning to French minorities

As I wrote Monday afternoon while the Notre Dame Cathedral was burning, this horror is more of a symbol of the downfall of Christianity in Europe, despite what the authorities come up with as a cause.

In the video below a man is seen walking not in emergency gear during the fire at Notre Dame. He appears to be in Muslim attire.

The gothic bastion that marked the beginning of western civilization out of the Dark Ages was begun in 1162 and largely completed by 1260, had Christians around the world feeling heartbroken as they watch the blaze take down its famous spires.

A dozen Catholic churches have recently been vandalized or desecrated over the holiest of seasons — Lent — in France this year. St. Sulpice —  the second-largest church in Paris, after Notre Dame — had a  large wooden door set on fire on St. Patrick’s Feast Day that Parisian fire officials confirmed was arson.

During this Lenten season alone vandals have smashed statues, knocked down tabernacles, scattered or destroyed the Eucharist and torn down crosses, sparking fears of a rise in anti-Catholic sentiment in the country. A dozen churches have been desecrated in France with altars smeared with feces, urine found in holy water and churches ransacked.

According to The Observatory of Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe, which was founded in cooperation with the Council of European Bishops Conferences, there has been a 25 percent increase in attacks on Catholic churches this year, compared with the same time last year in France.

As Europe — and France in particular — continues its open borders, the essence of what was France and its deep ties to Catholicism has not only been diluted, but it is now seen as what is wrong with the New France and its growing Muslim population.

It is not inconceivable to think burning Notre Dame during the holiest of weeks to the Catholic faith was a message to effect change.
