      We itemize their hypocrisies exhaustively, and we mock and snark with great skill and wit, because we’re all very smart. But they don’t care. They use power and brute hatred, which the culture finds far more persuasive. And we really have no response to that. It might make us be like them. And we can’t have that.

        Your thoughts (IMO) are very much shared by many others. The left for many years has been gliding on successful propaganda, institutional control, and brilliantly posited incrementalism.

        But they see all that carefully planned and implemented duplicity evaporating before their eyes.

        So they are returning to the approach they took in the 60s/70s – – violent confrontation and “revolution.”

        The first incarnation of romantic nihilism was dying but transformed into the more subtle and far, far more effective incrementalism.

        This second incarnation of romantic nihilism, just as determinedly violent and deadly, is now beginning.

        Trump lived through the first incarnation (as did many who post on CTH), and saw it up close and personal in NYC.

        Destruction and chaos are the goals in themselves, regardless of the stated cause.

        This time, though, the element of surprise is missing.

      Looking granularly at exactly where the pressure POTUS45 is placing with tariffs, I have to believe that he is carefully hitting the things that Made In American has already finished tooling up to produce, and is lagging on things not tooled up yet.

      Case in point: China tariffs left “consumer electronics” alone, so far. Maybe six more months-ish for US to finish tooling up for that. Wanna make a bet that right before the tool up is finish, the draganda gives sufficient excuse to hit them with another $200B in tariffs on that?

      No, I am not tired of WINNING! MAGA!!!

      Meanwhile, EU and China are so focused on “damaging Trump” that they are gonna starve themselves! (And, can you imagine life without American whisky, tobacco and sparkley socks?!)

    For those interested in US citizens who are arrested and have children. What should law enforcement do with the children. Why are illegals being given so much deference?

    DOJ report ‘Safeguarding Children of Arrested Parents’ August 2014

    ƒ An estimated 1,706,600 children have a parent in prison (i.e., 2.3 percent of the U.S. population under 18 years of age). Note that this does not include children who have parents in jail.

    The courts have not been as consistent or as prescriptive as law enforcement administrators would like with regard to guidance in this area [ placement of minors]. It seems as though the courts are sending the signal that as long as the children are not so young as to shock the conscience and no harm results, the officer can leave children in risky situations and be found to have made an unfortunate judgment call but one that does not rise to the level of deprivation of qualified immunity. But if the abandoned child is harmed in some way, the officer should have anticipated it and will be found guilty of gross negligence and reckless disregard for safety. ..”

      Really troubling…Judge Paul L Friedman

      “Judicial appointment

      Friedman was nominated by President Bill Clinton on March 22, 1994, to a seat vacated by Gerhard A. Gesell. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on June 15, 1994, and received his commission on June 16, 1994. He assumed senior status on December 31, 2009.

      Notable case

      Among Friedman’s notable cases is the continuing supervision of John Hinckley, Jr., the would-be assassin of President Ronald Reagan. Friedman has issued rulings that relaxed the restrictions on Hinckley by allowing him to leave the grounds of St. Elizabeths Hospital to spend more days each month visiting his mother’s home town of Williamsburg, Virginia.[3]On July 27, 2016, it was announced that Hinckley would be allowed to permanently reside there.”

      Friedman should be thrown off this case for a conflict of interest.

    I need some extra help in understanding what the IG report /summary and collusion finally comes down to. Wray seems to suggest NO BIAS in Clinton probe … so … does that mean Clinton gets off being charged and arrested….. since DOJ/FBI found no reason to charge or arrest her in the past.

    If both Sessions and Wray saw NO BIAS for or against Clinton Probe, it’s over , right? The fix is in.

    Or to we have to wait for it some more? Maybe Jeff will change his mind as see “bias” ? …right? … Jeff wants to go by the book, right? Did she commit a crime, something against the law? or not? … what’s up Jeff?

          agree. To come to the conclusion they did you would have to ignore any evidence that proved there was wrongdoing on the part of the FBI. And THAT, my friends, is never going to happen. If you aren’t looking for a crime, chances are you won’t find one.

          Use Manafort as an example. His crimes were committed years ago, and most were probably known, but only when he became part of the Trump campaign, did they start to dig deeper and charge him.

          They found what they wanted to find… then went about justifying the decision.

        which makes Horowitz a total moron…..I don’t care what you want to call the investigation was totally corrupt and completely deviated from every acceptable practice of the FBI. Just because those interviewed didn’t say they were biased or there was no written evidence of it doesn’t mean its not sitting in plain sight for anyone with half a brain. I’m bothered that those who did this are not going to be charged with obstruction of justice for cooking this investigation and hillary committed numerous felonies. Is there going to be accountability by actually having a real investigation done? Doesn’t seem likely. I have zero confidence in Huber and Sessions is dispicable.

          Maybe Horowitz (I know to us, this brings all future investigations of his into question) sees bigger fish in the October 2016/FISA investigation and hope for some justice/closure for us there. He seems to really want to get his teeth into it. Just a thought.

      Jack, not even close to being over. Cold anger.
      Wonder if Sen. Grassley ever got answers to his questions re: Amanda Renteria?

      https://www.grassley.senate.gov/news/news-releases/judiciary-committee-probes-reported-lynch-assurances-stifle-clinton-email

      …”In April, The New York Times reported that the FBI came into possession of a batch of hacked documents, one of which was said to be authored by a “Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far.” Chairman Grassley then requested a copy of the document from the Justice Department, which has failed to respond. A month later, The Washington Post reported similar facts and provided further details about individuals involved in these communications. The Post reported that the email in question, sent by then-chair of the Democratic National Committee Debbie Wasserman Schultz to Leonard Benardo of the Open Society Foundations, indicated that Lynch had privately assured Clinton campaign staffer Amanda Renteria that the FBI’s investigation wouldn’t “go too far.”

      Comey was reportedly concerned that the communication would raise doubts about the investigation’s independence and began discussing plans to announce the end of the Clinton email investigation rather than simply referring it to the Department for a prosecutorial decision. Comey’s extraordinary action to announce the end of the investigation was a break from Justice Department protocol, and was later cited as justification for his removal from the FBI.

      In their letters to Benardo, Open Society Foundations’ General Counsel Gail Scovell, Renteria and former Attorney General Lynch, the Senators seek details about the reported communication, copies of any related documents and whether the FBI contacted them to investigate the alleged communication.

      The reports come amidst numerous allegations of political inference in controversial and high-profile investigations spanning the current and previous administrations. The Senate Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over the FBI and Justice Department and is obliged to oversee any potential misconduct or inappropriate political influence at these agencies.

      Full text of the letters can be found at the following links.

      Letter to Mr. Leonard Benardo
      Letter to Ms. Gail Scovell
      Letter to Ms. Renteria
      Letter to former Attorney General Loretta Lynch”

      The post provides active links to the Committee’s letters.
      IMO, the testimony within the IG Report, related to Comey’s July 5 announcement, in light of this further information, doesn’t stand scrutiny….

    that other problem with the FBI we haven’t talked about much lately

    When I Tried to Give Gifts to the FBI
    The idea that there was a jihad threat made Obama-era FBI agents recoil in horror.

    “… several years ago I had lunch with a couple of FBI agents who were the very epitome of the kind of agent Barack Obama and James Comey wanted: extremely young, spottily educated, politically correct, secure and condescending in their ignorance, deeply concerned about the “right-wing” threat, and not at all preoccupied with the global jihad threat except insofar as it might put them on the trail of some “Islamophobes.”

In contrast, Administrative Law Judges, who adjudicate a variety of matters for different agencies such as the Social Security Administration, derive their power through Congressional legislation. The Administrative Procedures Act of 1946 granted Administrative Law Judges a lesser but still substantial degree of judicial independence — Administrative Law Judges are not evaluated by the agency in which they conduct hearings and may only be fired for good cause after an independent hearing process, a slightly weaker form of tenure than granted to federal judges under Article III.”

    How Immigration Officials Cooked the Books and Fooled Congress for Years

    “A recent Justice Department report on U.S. immigration courts provides a rare glimpse into the difficulties faced by the Trump administration as it repairs the damages inflicted on these tribunals over the last 20 years…..

    …….In essence, federal agencies calculated failure-to-attend rates in a misleading manner for congressional oversight.

    Instead of calculating the failure-to-attend rate by taking the number of aliens free before trial who missed court out of all those who were free before trial (n = x ÷ y), the courts pursued a different calculation: They took the number who skipped trial out of the much larger number of those who were free before trial plus those who were detained before trial (n = x ÷ y + z).

    Including the detained (people who can’t miss court) in an equation measuring failure-to-appear rates produced the desired effect. It enlarged the denominator, shrank the numerator, and gamed this important metric. A much reduced—and less alarming—failure-to-attend rate resulted.

    This is how a whole generation of executives rigged the failure-to-attend rate. Intended to mute embarrassing numbers, its practical effect was deception……”

    Mentioned in this short video is the murder of Aasiya Hassan in February of 2009. The MSM media deliberately did not report this event. There were media reporters and satellite trucks galore around here for weeks at that time to cover the crash of a commuter plane in the suburb of Clarence, NY. The crash, which killed 49 or 50 people, happened within about 24 hours of the beheading in the TV studio.

    Chris Collins (R-NY) was County Executive at that time. Only FOX News mentioned it soon after. I believe ABC caved and said something 2 or 3 weeks after the fact. Not a peep from any other media outlet (I do not know if One America News was operating at that time).
