Tune in as BKP interviews our very own 9th District Congressman Doug Collins on the current government issues and day 3 of the government shut down. Hear how Collins feels about the situation and what needs to happen to resolve the issues at hand.
Fire and Fury, Don’t Look for a Pulitzer!
Fire and Fury, sounds like a book about how Trump might have devastated “Rocket-mans North Korean empire.” But alas, not to be! Rather, it comes like a flaming torch out of the dim recesses of someone’s dark mental notions, not to illuminate the darkness, but as one wielded in the hand of an arsonist determined to terrorize while burning Trumps house down. Happily, once again It turns out to be another fruitless Liberal exercise in “Hope and Change.”
In essence, the book, by Michael Wolff, was created just to spread more confusion, but not for Donald Trump or on any allegations that he is mentally unstable, but for the trash author who, rhetorically, was carrying the torch for Democrats determination to not let him keep the prize he won by the vote of the people. Trump’s very bombastic presence in the White House, is anathema to what’s left of the Progressive hopes and dreams for a Hillary presidency. Damn, I just hate it when that happens.
The author, in his lunacy, offers another try for the demented Left to ruin Donald Trump’s credibility by seeking another path for his removal, i.e.: the 25th Amendment. The weirdos in the mainstream media try their hardest, bless their hearts, to convince Americans, even after a full year of promises kept and positive actions taken, that Trump, borders on incompetence and, therefore, must be removed. Read the 25th Amendment, carefully. Nowhere in it does anybody but the President himself, unless he is DRT (dead right there), can write the necessary letter acknowledging his own incapacity to carry on and allow the Vice-President to assume the reins of power. No matter what, Hillary isn’t going to be President. So there!
Some will argue that genius often borders on dementia and Progressive thinkers, like Michael Wolff, want so badly for that to be true in the case of Donald Trump, that they will prostrate themselves on the altar of fake journalism to try to convince us peons in fly-over country that we sorely misjudged ourselves when we voted Donald Trump our President. I don’t think so!
To produce an entire book filled with gossip, rumors and half truths, supported by a cacophony of WAG’s, and pitch it as the truth shows where the real dementia lies. It’s in the mainstream media propaganda machine. When the author admits some of the data might actually be wrong, then Fast and Furious can be listed right up there with the GPS Fusion Dossier as essential reading for the masses. The only fire this book has generated so far is the slavish belief by the Inside the Beltway crowd that at last the truth has been revealed and it will bring down Donald Trump; And, the people will rejoice and be happy. Kinda like believing “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” & etc., isn’t it?
Fire requires three things to work: fuel, oxygen and heat. Take any one of the ingredients away and the fire will go out. Metaphorically, Trump’s handling of the administration’s immigration conference with second tier Senate and House political leaders of both parties, accomplished exactly that. He blew out the flame by opening the door of transparency, asked Democrats, for the record, to tell what it was that they wanted, made gestures of cooperation and then after nearly an hour, ushered the media, their mouths still agape in disbelief, out the door.
The Left has got to be running out of ideas to stop Trump from ruining their decades of hard work to create a multicultural and diverse America, a country of multiple languages, multiple religions, multiple cultures and chaos and confusion for all. It’s all got to stop!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em.! (10Jan18)
The DOJ and the FBI…What’s Next?
Mueller’s Trump-Russia collusion investigation is all but dead. For all the months of investigation by Clinton partisan investigators at vast taxpayer expense, all they has to show for it is a miserable tally of petty offenses (lying to FBI agents), that have nothing to do with the “collusion with Russia” allegations that cost Hillary her expected post as America’s first female President.
The media coverage of President Trump is so negative that a weaker man than Trump would have wilted under that assault long ago. If Trump had conspired with Russia to steal the election from Hillary, the media would have found evidence of it early on. They didn’t and neither could Mueller. Congress could end the nonsense by simply defunding the Special Counsel, unless of course, Mueller found culpable evidence that the Hillary campaign and the DNC were, in fact, colluding with the Russians and moved on it. Oh, the humanity!
Exactly, what keeps this collusion story alive after a year of failures? It’s the dysfunctional Democrats and hysterical media who, in the face of facts to the contrary, conspire to keep their hopes for a socialist win alive. For them now, Hillary is a dead horse so it’s the issue of collusion that must be pursued. How they did that was to create, by their own hand, a bogus dossier, allegedly an opposition research report, circulate it among their DoJ and FBI syncopates, the NYT and Sen. John McCain, to give it credence, and blow the flames into a conflagration sure to burn the Trump Presidency into ashes. “Why, it’s a matter of “national security” so we must obtain a phony FISA warrant to spy on Trump, his family and associates.” Then, activate the deep state inbreds to create leaks, and watch the ship of state sink. Nope!
Many of Obama’s agency heads and upper level management, working together, could create much damage. Because they failed to undermine the shocking election result, the collusion story was concocted to justify a special counsel, staffed with Obama’s imbeds and prevent discoveries that were inimical to their case by revealing Hillary’s actual involvement.
I suspect the corruption of the FBI and DoJ started as early as the Clinton’s time in Arkansas, involving Hillary’s Whitewater land deal and the Rose Law firm investigations. By the time the Clintons finished their first term in the White House, the corruption was complete and cronies firmly in place to prevent possible backlashes to the Clinton’s criminal enterprise. The unravelling of that nest of crooks reveals a complicated list of characters all worthy of trial and imprisonment. They could start with former A.G. Eric Holder and his bogus Fast and Furious gun running operation that actually cost lives, both American and Mexican. His “hands up, don’t shoot,” program, plus the Clinton Foundation Pay to Play scheme and the Uranium One deal, among other crimes. All were ignored by then FBI Director Mueller.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch met secretly, she thought, with Bill Clinton on an Arizona airport tarmac ahead of the election, directing FBI director Comey to exculpate Hillary Clinton over “gross negligence” charges in her handling of classified emails when she was Secretary of State. James Comey, as FBI director, tied himself into knots trying to BS the American public about why Hillary would not be prosecuted.
While her campaign, it was learned, actually paid for the phony dossier, her potential power as President, was enough to move the DoJ and FBI to present the dossier as a worthwhile intelligence report sufficient to call for a domestic counterintelligence effort. Who approved it?
Well, lurking in the center of his web of intrigue, alert to every nuance from the connecting fibers of his network sat the one person responsible, aloof and uninvolved, but culpable because nothing worked without his knowledge or direction. It was President, Barack Obama. He alone is responsible.
No one in government would have dared behave as they did without the tacit approval of Barack Obama. His underlings knew exactly what he wanted, what was needed and performed accordingly, without the paper trail of potential accusation implicating him. Obama’s two attorney generals, his FBI director, his Commissioner of the IRS, and all the other agency heads served at his pleasure.
The corruption was visible, but the protections were too. Mueller’s feeble attempt to bring closure to Trump’s presidency has opened the door to exposure and let in the fresh disinfecting light of truth, revealing all. Let’s hope the new administration can act on it, without fear.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (06Jan18)
When Will They Do Something?
The Democrats slavishly anticipate a sweeping return of the power they once wielded by regaining the Congress, they hope, this year. But they ignore the reason that got them into their predicament in the first place. Voters didn’t want a third Obama term. Voters didn’t want that crooked Hillary Clinton screwing up America any more by extending Obama’s policies and, in fact, Voters really prayed for justice to be served on her for her multiple high crimes and misdemeanors. We’re not stupid after all. We know what’s wrong and we will vote.
Americans once trusted the FBI implicitly. The Clinton’s ruined all that. The FBI is now wreathed in controversy, infested with Clinton partisans and politically, in a position on the wrong side of Constitutionality earning for themselves the same level of distrust as a salesmen of aluminum siding or Obamacare enjoys. Once lost, trust cannot be reinstated without pain.
The Mueller investigation, after one whole year, is a sham. Nothing that comes from the anti-Trump inquiry can be considered trustworthy. When is the FBI investigation into real Russian collusion by the Clinton Foundation, the DNC and the Obama Administration, going to happen? The American People are waiting. It will happen when the AG, Mr. Jeff Sessions, gets off his butt, un-recuses himself and does his job, that’s when. Americans are ready for it.
Remember Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s trusted Islamic Brotherhood connected personal aide? She actually forwarded State Dept. passwords to her personal Yahoo account before it was casually perused by Russian agents. This means the compromised sites were not in fact hacked but were simply opened as one would open a refrigerator door and peek in. Corruption for money runs deep in the Clinton Foundation. Huma was not Interrogated by the FBI, just interviewed. Her lap top computer, according to James Comey, was simply destroyed. No charges were made against her or anyone else. The depth of Hillary’s protection is breathtaking.
The exposures were known to Hillary as early as July 2009 where another Clinton confident, Sid Blumenthal sent her an email with the subject line: Important, Not For Circulation. You (Hillary) Only, Sid.” It was marked “Confidential” and titled: “Moscow Summit.” Abedine forwarded the email to her Yahoo address potentially making it visible to hackers. That’s called a clue but for Democrats, it’s a smoking gun.
Apparently, Abedin regularly sent her work emails to her personal account, that included her husband Anthony Weiner, of “weiner” fame, as discovered by a Judicial Watch FOIA request. Weiner laptop revealed a cache of thousands of Hillary’s dumped emails, many compromised, all recovered by the FBI. Abedin’s excuse was that it was difficult to print from the State Depts. system so she routinely forwarded emails to her personal user account. Yahoo verified the August, 2013 hacking of all their accounts that made national news.
Abedin sent her government laptop passwords to her Yahoo account on 24 Aug. 2009, as revealed by the State Dept. in Sept 2017. In 2013, three billion (yes, with a “B”) accounts were open to hackers across multiple Yahoo systems. Finally, the DoJ charged Russian FSB Officer, Igor Sustain, with hacking 500 million Yahoo accounts well into 2016. Sushchins cover was as a banker with Russian Investment Bank Renaissance Capital, the very bank that paid Bill Clinton half a million dollars for a short speech he made in Moscow in June 2010. When will our side do something about this sordid state of affairs? When will justice be served. Never, so long as the “deep state” remains intact. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (03Jan18).
Georgia’s 9th District Congressman Doug Collins joined us for a brief phone interview this morning. He started out the interview by saying today is going to be a good day and a good day for the American people. The new Tax Bill should be on the President’s desk by the end of the week, Collins said. This new bill will do away with the Obamacare/health insurance mandate. The American people will no longer be “forced” to purchase health insurance. BKP went on to ask Collins about topics such as the government funding, a possible spending resolution, Russian dossier on going investigation, and a possible 2nd council. Collins finished the interview with a comment about President Trump’s National Security speech. “We have a world that is unstable but a leader who wants to keep America safe and keep our leadership in the world.” As always we would like to thank Congressman Collins for taking time to speak with us.
Clinton’s Demise, She Did It, End of an Era…
July, 2017 was when FBI Dir. Comey made his stunning announcement. A few short weeks later the allegations of a Trump-Russian collusion surfaced, supported by a phony but damning dossier called the Fusion GPS report. That report set in motion the Mueller witch hunt, hailed by the media, to prove that Trump colluded with the Russians. FISA search warrants were sought and issued, based on the strength of that false report. Mueller was empowered to investigate the claimed collusion and bring an end to that awful Donald Trump’s presidency. But alas, as “the best laid schemes o’ mice and men gang aft agley.” …(Robert Burns), nothing nefarious could be attached to Trump’s pre-inauguration administration. But lo! it did to Hillary Clinton’s. Is it being ignored now? If so, why?
The Fusion GPS report, exposed for the fraud it is, was the creation, as we now know, paid for by the Clinton/DNC. One would think the “Fruit of the Poisonous Tree” doctrine would apply here and render any evidence collected under the false swearing by the FBI (S/A Strzok), using that report to obtain their FISA warrants Invalid, and mark the entire Mueller case, even the piddly charge against General Flynn, untenable in any court of law. Let’s hope so.
So, what is to be done about “Crooked Hillary” and her team of criminal abetters and co-conspirators, including those at the head of the FBI and DoJ? This would be a direct attack on the “Deep State.” Keep in mind that when Hillary used special ‘software’ as a tool to “scrub” her email server to ensure nothing incriminating could ever be found on it again, she was, by intention, concealing evidence of a crime, which is also chargeable as Obstructing Justice.
Former FBI Director Comey abetted Hillary’s crimes with the apparent collaboration of Loretta Lynch and FBI agent Peter Strzok. They are exposed as deep state Clinton partisans. FBI
Agent Strzok’s conduct was especially egregious because he not only edited Comey’s public remarks by removing the two offending criminal words, “grossly negligent,” and replaced them with words not deemed criminal. Too, he actively conducted the major interviews of personalities involved in the investigation, effectively nullifying their criminal involvement except for Gen. Flynn. Sounds very much like a rigged game as Trump has claimed.
Hillary, and her campaign staff, free of possible indictment and realizing that Trump could actually win, launched their full court press and media campaign using the phony Fusion-GPS report to tie Putin and Trump together in the public’s eye as collaborators that denied Hillary Clinton her ‘Prize.’ The Democratic establishment, especially Hillary Clinton, figured the best way to hide the fact that Hillary and Russia were in cahoots themselves, was to shift the idea that it was actually Trump colluding with the Russians instead. That explains the Russian Lawyer meeting Trump Jr., and their claims that Gen. Flynn conspired with the Russian ambassador and whatever else they could make stick.
We’re a full year past the election and the Clinton/DNC campaign to destroy Trump, while in tatters, is still trying. Even at this late date, the Clinton News Network (CNN) launched a breathless expose’ based on a phony Wikileaks email they claimed proved Trump’s collusion. Oops! It blew up right in their face as fake news, smearing the other liberal networks as well.
Isn’t it time Hillary should go to trial? The only remaining question is when is the DoJ and the FBI really going to start their investigation into the RICO challenged Clinton Foundation? We’re waiting! Opening that Pandora’s Box should really be enlightening, don’t you think?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (09DEc17)
The Clinton’s Demise?
“Oh, what tangled webs we weave when at first we practice to deceive.” Wm. Shakespeare.
Are “The chickens are coming home to roost,” at least for the Clinton’s? The awful shenanigans that the Democrats have perpetrated against Donald Trump before his election last November are being revealed for the real criminality they are. Why can’t the DoJ see that? If you grew up in the Watergate era of Richard Nixon, that pales in comparison to Clintons criminality. Remember, Hillary Clinton paid off the DNC’s outstanding debts and in exchange, demanded complete control over the DNC’s money and activities, and got it. Therefore, Hillary Clinton and the DNC are synonymous.
Early in 2017, the Clinton campaign began to suspect their personal attacks against Donald Trump were not working but had instead, actually gave Trump’s campaign more favorable exposure than they intended. At the same time the FBI investigation into Clinton’s mishandling of classified information and ‘scrubbing’ her personal email server was getting perilously effective, at least in the public’s eye. Americans expected justice at last for “crooked Hillary.”
But, the fix was in. At a DC Press Conference on July 5th last year (2016), FBI Director James Comey, just a few days after Attorney General, Loretta Lynch got caught meeting clandestinely with Bill Clinton in Az., shockingly and peremptorily, announced to the world that no reasonable prosecutor would bring charges against Hillary Clinton because the FBI failed to prove “Intent.” He therefore declared Hillary “acquitted” of all charges, while admitting her actions were “extremely careless.” And, here I always thought it was juries that acquitted defendants if they were found not Guilty. So, by Comey’s definition then, “Intent” is necessary to even charge a violation of a federal crime! It didn’t work for Scooter Libby or General Flynn, did it? The end result was, however, the full court press against Donald Trump, i.e.: the Russian Collusion.
Codification of ‘Intent’ as an issue of guilt, hasn’t been written into law except to show pre-meditation of a crime, often associated with homicides or frauds, when witnesses, usually co-conspirators to that crime, “rat out” the principle to save themselves. So, now we ask why were Cheryll Mills and Uma Abaden interviewed by the FBI without benefit of a Miranda warning, or charged with lying, and why did the FBI destroy their laptop computers? Simple enough, their testimony, and computer evidence, would have proved the premeditation required to show Hillary’s ‘intent.’ For example, if her private email server contained only personal family communications, why did she desperately find it necessary to “scrub” 30,000 messages out of the thing? Thank God for Anthony Weiner’s computer.
So, when something as egregious as Clinton’s criminal actions and cover-ups, i.e.: obstructing justice by destroying evidence and the illegal use of non classified systems, etc., & etc. (without intent), are exposed, it demands investigation and closes the silly argument of “I didn’t mean to” or “I don’t recall” that Liberals and the rich and famous use to exculpate their crimes. At what point in time did the leadership of the FBI and the DoJ, decide that Hillary Clinton had to be saved at all costs? I believe it all started in January, 2008. One wonders too, if Hillary can say she will seek rehabilitation services to save herself? Who offers these wonderful services? Prisons do! The “I didn’t mean it” excuse died with the Third Reich. It didn’t work for the Nazi’s when their only excuse for committing atrocities was “I vas only obeying orders,” were quickly followed by either a thirteen step climb up a scaffold or a firing squad. As we are now learning, It was Hillary Clinton’s machine that created the excuses to ensure she would escape simply because she had no ‘intent.’ Anyway, that’s what FBI Director James Comey told us.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (10Dec17)
ICYMI: A Second Special Counsel Would Boost the DOJ’s Credibility
WASHINGTON—This op ed by Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) first appeared in RealClearPolicy on December 5, 2017.
Recently, the House Judiciary Committee conducted an oversight hearing of the Department of Justice (DOJ) that allowed representatives from both parties to question Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In response, some have asserted that appointing a second special counsel to investigate decisions made by the DOJ in 2016 would be a partisan maneuver, damaging the independence of the Department.
I too am concerned about preserving the independence of the Justice Department — which is precisely why Judiciary Committee Republicans have called for a special counsel to investigate matters outside the scope of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
The Judiciary Committee’s letters have been belittled as “a laundry list of Republican grievances about Clinton and former FBI director James B. Comey.” But they document persistent and unanswered questions about the independence of the DOJ, and specifically whether it may have been compromised under the Obama administration. These letters are themselves tools of oversight to be used on behalf of the millions of Americans whose democratic government owes them answers.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s independent e-mail server warranted a DOJ investigation, even if former Attorney General Loretta Lynch provided one in name only. (Actually, she failed to deliver even that, instructing former FBI Director James Comey to call the investigation a “matter.”) Americans are well-stocked with outstanding questions about how the DOJ handled these issues, and the specter of favoritism still looms over the Obama DOJ. The possibility that the department made decisions to aid a political candidate is a potential threat to democracy — one that deserves a DOJ investigation today just as it did in 2016.
At the same time, I recognize that some of my friends across the aisle lack confidence that a Republican-appointed DOJ would conduct such an investigation impartially. Hearing those concerns, I submit that a second special counsel offers Americans the opportunity to pursue answers to these questions without even the appearance of partisan impropriety. After all, independent counsels are like dentists: They scare everyone who hasn’t flossed.
Concerns about DOJ investigations and appointing special counsels too often come to us frosted in hyper-partisan language. This obscures the crux of the liberal argument against the move: Neither the DOJ under Attorney General Jeff Sessions nor an independent special counsel is capable of investigating Clinton. According to this logic, there exists no credible path for investigating potential favoritism on the part of America’s chief law enforcement officials. It would follow that the world’s strongest democracy is impotent when it comes to pursuing objective, unfettered, non-partisan accountability of its own federal agencies.
As a member of the committee charged with exercising oversight of the entire Department of Justice and the representative of approximately 700,000 Georgian voices, I have a bit more faith in the checks and balances that undergird our justice system — including the utility of the special counsel position.
Party loyalty aside, the DOJ made many decisions last year that have led to a host of unresolved questions, and the American people deserve answers. For example, why did former Attorney General Lynch direct former FBI Director Comey to mislead the American people on the nature of the Clinton investigation? Why did Mr. Comey prepare a statement ending the investigation into former Secretary Clinton before interviewing 17 key witnesses, including the former secretary herself?
These and other questions about the independence of the DOJ continue to cast a shadow on our nation’s justice system. By addressing them directly, a second special counsel could strengthen the DOJ’s credibility, reestablishing its reputation as a non-partisan agent of justice.
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) is Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference and a member of the House Judiciary Committee.
