Get FISA out to change the narrative

Some people subscribe to the theory it is better to say “I’m sorry” than “may I”.

I say this as news broke overnight that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham on Thursday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation will proceed, according to a person familiar with the meeting.

The meeting between Graham and Whitaker comes as a some senators are pushing legislation to protect Mueller’s job since Whitaker has criticized in the past the sprawl of Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

I believe the Trump administration should take this under advisement and deploy the maxim I cited up top.

Would it not shake the world up if the administration released the original unredacted FISA warrants showing how the Democrats worked with the intelligence agencies both here and abroad to frame Trump and associates with Russian collusion.

It does not need to be an official release, but rather an informed leak followed up by an official announcement stating that while most of the story is quite true and we have documents that support it, the administration does not condone leaks and we demand ….

It changes the narrative and puts Democrats back on the defensive immediately. It also puts the Obama White House squarely in the midst of this scandal.

I’m not sorry to say this, but Mr. President, I say go for it.

Avenatti’s at 14:59 on his claim to fame

Michael Avenatti wants us to presume his innocent on criminal domestic violence charges brought against him by a woman who claims to be “swollen and bruised” after a confrontation with him.

Avenatti allegedly told police “That she hit me first.” If true, then that speaks volumes on the character of the leftist media’s latest wonder boy.

The lawyer, who represents porn actress Stormy Daniels in her case to throw out a non-disclosure agreement between the actress and President Trump, has spent more time the last 6 months in TV studios than courtrooms.

MSNBC and CNN gave Avenatti a large platform to throw many accusations and disparate remarks against Trump that were not even part of the original civil suit.

What this ambulance chaser did during the Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court hearings  was so abusive that he and his “client” Julie Swetnick, according to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, are subject to the Department of Justice for a possible criminal investigation over allegations they made false statements to Congress.

So this dreg of society, who exploded on the scene only to now flame out like so many other roman candles making big splashes on the scene only to be relegated to the trash bin of history soon afterward.

His fame stopwatch is now at 14:59, according to Andy Warhol’s calculations.

What exactly is going on in Broward County, Florida?

What is it about Broward County, Florida that brings this suburban Miami area into the news so often.

Reviewing a list of nationally known terror events from 9-11 through the present voting fraud allegations suggests that the county is a breeding ground for perception-changing events.

  • Nicolas Cruz: The Parkland high school shooter.
  • Cesar Sayoc: The recent mail bomber
  • Jose Padilla: Indicted on charges of conspiring to commit terrorist acts with a dirty bomb in support of al-Qaida.
  • Raees Alam Qazi and Sheheryar Alam Qazi: Brothers convicted of planning to launch an attack on New York City in support of al-Qaida.
  • Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi: 9-11 suicide hijackers had flight training in Broward County.
  • James Gonzalo Medina: Confessed to planning to bomb a Broward County synagogue during Passover in 2016.

Now the county is the hotbed for alleged voter fraud with Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes in the middle of a disastrous midterm handling of ballots.

Broward County has had two prominent leaders during most of the time cited above with the list of events. Democratic House member Debbie Wasserman Schultz and County Sheriff Scott Israel.

Wasserman Schultz was also the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee in 2016 and was forced to resign after emails showed she rigged the Democratic nominating for Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders.

Israel early this year overwhelmingly lost a no-confidence vote set up by the county’s deputies over his handling of the Parkland high school shooting. A billboard was put up by the deputies saying: “There is no confidence in Sheriff Israel”. The deputies have also petitioned Governor Rick Scott to replace Israel.

I just find that the concentration of perception changing events that have national ramifications from 9-11 through mass shooters and bombers all coming out of this south Florida county just to the north of Miami.

The stench that emanates out of this Democratic controlled county should be the subject of a Department of Justice probe from top to bottom to get a better understanding of what is actually going on down in Fort Lauderdale.

 

 

 

 

Apple pays dearly for staunch privacy stance

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook appears to be in trouble over his repeatedly stated opinion on technology and personal privacy.

Cook has been consistent in his stance on releasing private information of his customers from the San Bernardino shooters in 2015.

On Sunday Cook appeared on “60 Minutes” and his recent presentation backing the right to privacy at an European Union conference. No other US tech CEOs appeared live at this conference.

During his EU presentation, Cook said this: “Today [the private information] trade has exploded into a data industrial complex. Our own information, from the everyday to the deeply personal, is being weaponized against us with military efficiency,” Cook said at a conference in Brussels on data privacy last week.

Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and SnapChat among others declined to appear live.

So come Monday two iPhone component suppliers cut sales projections for the upcoming quarter. While neither company named Apple as the reason for the revenue shortfall, Wall Street took Rice to the woodshed taking 5% or roughly $50 billion out of investors pockets.

Apple has said recently it will not breakout individual product sales numbers anymore in it quarterly earnings reports in keeping with other manufacturers.

Now iPhone sales may be slowing as market saturation and the costs for replacement units continue to rise, but the timing of these two events — “60 Minutes” and stock collapse — appear to be a shot across the bow of Apple to tone down the privacy rhetoric.

Globalists hate the idea of nationalism

President Trump when talking about the caravan and his moves to defend the southern border with Mexico recently stated:

“You know they have a word, it sort of became old-fashioned, it’s called ‘nationalist.’ And I said, really? We’re not supposed to use that word. You know what I am? I’m a nationalist, OK? I’m a nationalist.”

At the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day marking the end of World War I over the weekend French President Emmanuel Macron said this in regards to President Trump’s statement :

“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying ‘our interests first, who cares about the others.’ We erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what makes it grace, and what is essential – its moral values.“

What is the alternative to nationalism and why has that word taken on such a negative connotation?

The definition of nationalism from a political standpoint is: A political, social, and economic system characterized by the promotion of the interests of a particular nation, especially with the aim of gaining and maintaining sovereignty over the homeland.

The first synonym is patriotism.

The flip side of nationalism is globalism, which Macron and other EU member leaders must need to subscribe to since they cannot defend their borders from what Brussels dictates to them.

Macron, Merkel et al have lost their sovereignty to unelected officials dictating policies of what France or Germany et al will do. Think of the refugees changing the face of Europe.

When does nationalism turn into an extreme form marked by a feeling of superiority over other countries? When the native citizens begin to feel powerless over dictates that they have no recourse from these rules affecting their lives.

Macron may be too young to remember — perhaps he should ask his wife — how American troops freed the French from occupation during the two world wars, since their patriots were unable to defend their homeland.

Now of course Brussels is quite worried that Trump’s tariffs will correct the many years that the EU took advantage of loop-sided US trade policies. So they sent their French puppet out to take a jab at the American president.

President Trump should remember you only take flak when you are over the target.
