The Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General recently released a report regarding former FBI Director James Comey’s behavior in his final days as FBI director and the time following that, detailing various times in which Comey violated, with clear intent, several FBI and other federal policies.
In what is rather reminiscent of the Hillary Clinton case regarding leaking and deleting of e-mails back in 2016, the OIG report lays out all the violations Comey committed:
“Comey’s actions with respect to the Memos violated Department and FBI policies concerning the retention, handling, and dissemination of FBI records and information, and violated the requirements of Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement,” reads the OIG report.
Those memos are the ones Comey wrote in the first three months of Trump’s administration before the President fired him. The memos he had kept after leaving the FBI, which is a violation of DOJ and FBI policy. Upon leaving the FBI, he was required to return all official FBI documents, but Comey’s excuse to the OIG was that he considered those memos to be “personal records”, so he thought he should be able to keep them. The OIG, in their report, found no legal basis for him to believe they were his.
The OIG also said that Comey was at fault for failing to “tell anyone from the FBI that he had retained copies of the Memos in his personal safe at home,” despite the fact he had his former chief of staff, associate deputy director and three FBI officials went into his home to “inventory and remove all FBI property.”
So he kept FBI property, giving a poor excuse for it, there is no legal basis for him to have done so, and despite all of that, he won’t be prosecuted? What a disgrace, but that's not all of it.
What's more, Comey also further broke Bureau policy by sending a copy of a memo regarding General Michael Flynn, wherein the President had asked the then-FBI director to “let this go”, in reference to the criminal prosecution of Flynn regarding lying to the FBI (in what even Comey himself didn’t think he lied, but he was still prosecuted anyway), to a friend of his with instructions to give it to The New York Times.
In doing this, the OIG writes: “Comey violated FBI policy and the requirements of his FBI Employment Agreement when he chose this path. By disclosing the contents of Memo 4, through [Daniel] Richman, to The New York Times, Comey made public sensitive investigative information related to an ongoing FBI investigation, information he had properly declined to disclose while still FBI Director during his March 20, 2017 congressional testimony.”
Now, the law is rather strange when it comes to what a federal government official can disclose to the media and what one cannot. James Comey, in a tweet, quoted the OIG report when it says they had “found no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media,” followed by arrogantly asking people to say “sorry we lied about you” when he’s the one who has been lying for the past two years.
But in any case, that is important because leaking classified information is a prosecutable crime and if there is no evidence of doing so, a prosecution cannot happen. However, he violated several other FBI policies and by Comey’s own standard of “intent”, he should be prosecuted over them because there was clear intent.
If you remember back in 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey gave a press conference in which he detailed a number of ways in which Hillary Clinton violated multiple federal policies when she was Obama’s Secretary of State, including the use of an illegal and unsecured server as well as using a personal email address to conduct official business and to handle classified information. Despite laying out all of Hillary’s sins (at least the ones regarding gross negligence), Comey, in acting as Attorney General despite not having the authority to do so, said that she would not be prosecuted because there was no “intent” to violate these policies despite the fact that intent is not part of the statute and it’s difficult to inherently prove intent.
Hillary Clinton should’ve been prosecuted but was not because of dubious circumstances and the excuse that there was “no intent” (though I disagree, but that doesn’t really matter). For James Comey, there definitely was intent to violate policy and violation of policy should be punished, otherwise there is no reason for the policy to be there in the first place.
The OIG mentions that “by not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees – and the many thousands more former FBI employees – who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.” And while I agree, what really sets a dangerous example for not just FBI, but all federal employees as well, is the lack of punishment for violating such federal policies.
It’s far more dangerous for society to let someone who breaks the rules get away with it than for someone to just break the rules. In schools or in the workplace, when someone breaks the rules, they have to be punished and be made an example of. “Don’t do what he did or what happened to him will happen to you” is what people should be learning. Instead, through this inaction, the OIG and all of the DOJ set a far worse standard for federal employees than James Comey did.
Comey is one person and not even a well-liked individual. He’s the type of person corrupt politicians would be more than okay with throwing under the bus to save their own skin. But through this inaction, we are under the understanding that no one is judged equally under the law. That there certainly are people who are above the law and such a standard turns this country into an oligarchy far faster than any election could.
Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, James Clapper, Christopher Steele, James Comey and several other characters have all shown themselves to be above the law. Despite having broken the law to one extent or the other, they are all free men and women who got away with it. The fact that I’m not all that shocked that Comey gets to walk free is an indictment of the Department of Injustice. I don’t even EXPECT the law to be fully applied to these people when they break it.
Now, I’m not demanding that Comey be thrown in jail for life and the key to be thrown away. A no-name FBI agent leaked classified information regarding NATIONAL DEFENSE and only got a four-year prison term, so I can’t exactly expect to see the law getting rid of these people for good. But the fact that not a damn thing will happen to James Comey (and I expect nothing to happen to McCabe either) is truly sad. And yes, I know that the OIG and prosecutor John Durham are also looking into FISA warrant abuse by Comey, but I have no expectations for this.
Even if there is evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Comey, it’s pretty clear that these people are untouchable.
There is truly only one Judge in this world, who is incorruptible and unchangeable. These people might escape Man’s law and judgment, but they can’t escape God’s.

After roughly two years of Attorney General Jeff Sessions doing nothing to run his Department of Justice, choosing to look into low-priority weed-related crimes, new Attorney General William Barr has already done more for this country in a couple of months than Sessions did in his entire time as AG. And as far as we can see, this is only the beginning for AG Barr.
After telling Special Counsel Robert Mueller to wrap up his investigation, leading the Special Counsel to find no evidence of collusion and leaving it up to Barr to determine whether the firing of James Comey and the Twitter rants against the Special Counsel were considered obstruction of justice (spoiler alert: they’re not), Attorney General William Barr is set to “assemble a team to investigate the origins of the Obama administration’s FBI counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election,” according to the Daily Wire.
This also comes a day after William Barr had spoken to the House Judicial Committee, where he mentioned that he believes that there was spying of the Trump campaign (why would he even say, under oath, that he thinks so and plans to investigate it if he didn’t honestly believe there was anything wrong there?), saying he would look into whether such spying was warranted or not (which is likely just a means to keep the Dems from looking too much into what he is doing).
During the hearing, Barr said: “I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted during the summer of 2016.”
What’s more, Fox News has reported that “the Justice Department’s Inspector General (IG) is separately looking into whether Comey mishandled classified information by including a variety of sensitive matters in his private memos” and will look into “the FBI’s FISA application process.”
And if they find what I think they will find – an FBI director (and perhaps a former CIA director) using the FBI as a political weapon against someone he doesn’t like with the purposes of swaying, if not outright fixing, the results of an election – then we could see James Comey in some serious trouble at some point down the line.
And that would only likely be the beginning of it. People like Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and whomever was involved in the spying on the Trump campaign could face some time as well. And that’s just from these two investigations alone. If they result in what I think they will result (or at least hope they will result), other investigations could be opened as well, namely things like investigating the Steele dossier, investigating Hillary Clinton’s e-mails again (remember: Comey said there would be no charges against her, but he was overreaching his power as he was not the AG at the time and there was never a trial, only Congressional hearings, so double-jeopardy does not apply here), investigating the Uranium One deal, investigating the Clinton Foundation with regards to Haiti (reportedly, the Foundation stole money that was donated to the people of Haiti after a terrible earthquake back in 2010), and some other things.
Of course, this is largely a pipe dream at this point. Possible, but I don’t know if entirely likely. For one, they would likely have to wrap up this planned investigation before moving on to other things. Not to mention I am not entirely certain that the DOJ will ever actually prosecute the Clintons for anything. And as far as Obama goes, while I think he was the head honcho of the FBI spying on Trump, I am not certain the DOJ will prosecute him either for some of the same reasons as with the Clintons.
Still, this is definitely a step in the right direction of applying some seriously overdue justice on those who have sought to use the power of the State to influence an election and overturn its results when it wasn’t what they wanted.
For two years, the media has insisted that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary Clinton. And while this 100% is not going to stop, regardless of what Mueller has said in his report (Schiff is so full of it he claims the evidence is plentiful and out there for anyone to see, despite Mueller’s findings pointing to the contrary), we are at least beginning to turn the tides a little bit.
Rush Limbaugh theorizes that the Mueller investigation was the “insurance policy” as noted in one of the released text messages between Strzok and Page. He theorizes that the investigation is meant to be a sort of cover-up for the Obama administration spying on Trump and people working for Trump, as well as a sort of cover-up for Hillary for her role in the Steele dossier (you know, funding the thing?).
I’m not 100% sure if the Mueller investigation in itself was meant to be the “insurance policy” considering Strzok wrote that text months before the election even took place, but I do think the FBI spying on Trump (at the behest of Obama, whom Strzok and Page mention in their texts) was supposed to be the “insurance policy”, with the Mueller investigation eventually being a sort of bonus after Trump fired Comey (which a lot of people honestly should’ve expected).
But whether I am right or Rush is right, what is important here is the fact that, after two years of investigative resources being wasted in a witch hunt, Attorney General William Barr has the guts to do what Sessions could not be bothered to do: investigate the rotten stench coming from the Left.
Sessions should’ve looked into SOMETHING when the Strzok-Page texts were revealed. He should’ve looked into something when we discovered that the FBI was, indeed, spying on Trump. He should not have recused himself from the Russia investigation, which sought to look at everything in Trump’s life going back to the day he was born, seeing if he was colluding with Russians in the utero.
Instead, the biggest news Sessions announced since his recusal was his intention to look into weed farms and other dumb things. Yeah, because in the midst of one of the biggest political scandals in American, if not world, history, one of the few people who can do something about it ought to spend his time busting potheads.
Thankfully, we now have an Attorney General who is not afraid of actually investigating wrongdoings (not people, for the record, but reportedly criminal actions, as investigators in countries not in a banana republic tend to do).
Because what we know, and what AG Barr knows, is that the FBI did, indeed, spy on the Trump campaign. One can make the case for this being legitimate or illegitimate (guess which side I am taking), but that’s precisely what Barr is going to look into. Not Comey specifically to find if he did something wrong, but a particular action that Comey was involved with, or at least heavily responsible for, and investigating if there was reasonable cause for what he did.
But regardless of the findings, this is at least a step in the right direction. The FBI spying on Trump is a big deal that should be looked into, regardless of whether or not the FBI had a legitimate reason for doing so (I’m willing to bet they didn’t if the Steele dossier is all they had to go on, which has been confirmed to be garbage).
We should thank God for this.

Recently, the DOJ’s Office of Inspector General report on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton e-mails investigation revealed a text message conversation between two FBI employees the day after Trump won the 2016 election.
Here is the exchange:
FBI Employee: “I’m very upset.”
FBI Employee: “haha”.
FBI Attorney 2: “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently.”
FBI Employee: “Don’t stress. None of that mattered.”
FBI Employee: “The FBI’s influence.”
FBI Attorney 2: “I don’t know. We broke the momentum.”
FBI Employee: “That is not so.”
FBI Employee: “All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out. Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.”
Love you too, bud.
But seriously, you might be thinking “this is just what the Left in general thinks of us, what’s the big deal? They’ve called us worse.” True, but those were all people on social media or in the MSM. These people are FBI AGENTS who are supposed to REMAIN UNBIASED!
Take a look back at these texts. I’ll also remind you that Peter Strzok also texted Lisa Page that “they” would stop Trump from becoming President. I don’t know who these two employees are, but clearly there was a larger conspiracy to rig the election.
Of course, this is nothing new to us. We knew that Hillary conspired to cheat and we also knew that Obama did as well, but this really puts things into perspective. This is evidence that the FBI was politically biased throughout the campaign. Meaning, there is reason to believe there was bias in the handling of the e-mail investigation as well.
The FBI attorney was wondering what they could have done differently. Regarding what? It’s unclear. The conversation seems to focus on the Hillary investigation. But the larger context is regarding the election. What could they, as FBI agents, have done to keep Trump from becoming President? Clearly, not very much. But what gives them license to believe they even could have done anything? Was their handling of the investigation meant to help out Hillary?
Of course, we know that it was. Comey usurped the authority of the Attorney General by exonerating Hillary and not seeking charges against her. He didn’t have the power to do that as FBI director. The FBI director can make recommendations to the AG, but he/she does not have the authority to decide the fate of the person being investigated.
But again, as we already knew all of this and the corruption within the FBI, this further puts things into perspective.
Now the conversation didn’t just end there. Of course, the attorney continued his or her upset tirade by saying: “I just can’t imagine the systematic disassembly of the progress we made over the last 8 years. ACA is gone.”
And the employee made further known just what he thinks of us: “Who knows if the rhetoric about deporting people, walls, and crap is true. I honestly feel like there is going to be a lot more gun issues, too, the crazies won finally. This is the tea party on steroids. And the GOP is going to be lost, they have to deal with an incumbent in 4 years…” And then he says something pretty interesting: “We have to fight this again.”
Who is “we”? Who is the “we” that Strzok talks about when saying they would stop Trump? Of course, I have no doubt that it’s the Deep State, the swamp, the Obama people who can’t stand to lose and must not allow people their right to vote for people they disagree with.
To this elitist jackhole, we are too stupid to know what is right. We are too uneducated and must be helped in choosing who to vote for. And if we vote for the wrong person, they will do whatever they can to destroy said person, undermine that person and rule his or her election null and void.
This is corruption at its finest. Thankfully, the American electorate system seems to have been solid enough that no matter what these holier-than-thou elitists tried to do, they wouldn’t get away with it.
And since it’s in my nature, I will obliterate this man’s claims here.
First, the only ones who are crazy here are the people who believe themselves big enough and bad enough that they could influence and alter the results of an election to benefit themselves every time out. The only ones crazy here are the ones who fight for a political side that would ultimately see the United States destroyed from within, that would see American citizens at the mercy of the government… or Sharia Law, honestly. The only ones who are crazy here are the ones who believe a fetus is nothing more than a random assortment of cells, Islamic terrorists can be appeased by giving them jobs, Antifa terrorists are peaceful angels sent from Heaven, a man can be a woman and vice versa, and that MS-13 are innocent souls.
Second, what gun violence? You mean the one that ravaged the nation during Obama’s 8 years when he did absolutely nothing about it, even with a Democrat majority in his first 2 years as POTUS? You mean the one where we saw record numbers of shootings perpetrated by Democrats or Muslims? I won’t deny there isn’t gun violence in Trump’s America, but Obama had the best opportunity to actually do something about it and did nothing. Not to mention that some of the most dangerous places in the country in terms of gun violence are places where Democrats have power, such as Chicago, Oakland and Detroit.
Third, I simply love how he blasts poor and middle class people. Aren’t the Democrats supposed to be the ones who cared about the low and middle class people? Aren’t they the ones who do great things for the downtrodden? How are Trump’s supporters the poor and middle class?
This is just another example of how the Left has utterly abandoned the low and middle class. Particularly, the white, blue collar class. They make fun of you, they attack you, and then, somehow expect you to vote for them? What a joke.
Finally, the FBI employee makes fun of Trump’s promise of bringing back jobs and of your expectations that jobs will “magically” come back. Well, abracadabra, jerk. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (from March 2018), Donald Trump has created nearly 2.5 million jobs since becoming President. This goes along with record-setting unemployment rates in the last few months as well.
Reading what these people think of us, I feel mixed emotions. For one, I feel indifferent, as this is something I would expect out of mind-numbed Leftists who believe Obama is God. The problem is that, as I mentioned earlier, these are FBI employees. They’re law enforcement. They’re SUPPOSED to remain unbiased in how they handle investigations and their overall work. THAT is what makes me angry. Although, it’s also something to be expected. This is the swamp, after all. The Deep State. These are corrupt, biased and evil people we are talking about.
People who have seemingly worked to alter the results of an election. People who have sought to undermine the people they are supposed to serve. People who have taken Democracy into their own hands and tried to taint it.
We really have to thank the Lord for Donald Trump’s election victory. It’s not just Hillary that he had to beat. It was also government corruption. And by some miracle, he managed to do it. All thanks to the Lord.
Because here’s the thing: it really doesn’t matter what these FBI employees tried to do or will try to do. It doesn’t matter the extent Hillary and Obama and his administration went to cheat. It doesn’t matter what they think they are capable of. Ultimately, it is God who decides what happens.
He gets to decide who wins an election. He gets to decide what policy an authority figure enacts. None of it is a surprise to Him. He gets to decide who goes where and what they end up doing. For as powerful as the FBI might think they are, or might actually be, they are absolutely nothing compared to the Lord.
Usually, I would use an analogy here to compare a situation, but no analogy could honestly be properly used. Because there is nothing that can compare to God’s power. Nothing that can compare to the power gap that exists between God and Man. Man, ultimately, has no power. We only have as much power as the Lord gives us.
These fools may think they can play God. Ultimately, they are nothing.
We must also be thankful that these things are coming to light. It might be scary to believe our government can be so corrupt as to try and steal an election away from the American people, but it’s worse to not be aware of the danger.
Make no mistake, this is war. A war that we cannot afford to lose and cannot afford to not participate in. This isn’t Democrat vs. Republican anymore. It’s not conservative vs. liberal. It’s the Left vs. We the People. It’s Evil vs. Good. It’s government corruption vs. the American people. The Deep State vs. the rest of us.
The swamp may be big, but it’s not unbeatable. As I said before, it is the Lord who gets to decide who wins and who loses. If He is with us, who in the world are they to be against us?
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”
If you read my previous article about James Comey, you know that I mentioned in the end that the media would eventually get tired of him and return to Stormy Daniels. That article was published on Monday. It’s Wednesday. And already, the media has gotten tired of him. That’s gotta be some sort of record.
CNN’s Ana Navarro tweeted on Monday: “Maybe it’s just me… the more I hear from Comey, the more conflicted I feel. I want to believe him that this is all about loyalty to country and inviolable respect for the truth. But damn, the guy has a big ego, is selectively inconsistent. I find him obnoxiously self-righteous.”
It’s honestly astounding how quickly James Comey came to be even somewhat disliked by the media.
And Navarro wasn’t the only one who expressed dissatisfaction with Comey. Politico has suggested that Comey’s “white knighthood” was distracting from his story about the administration’s supposed misdeeds.
An op-ed on the Washington Post called Comey an “honest man”, but also called his memoir a “big mistake” and a seemingly “desperate” attempt at staying relevant.
Even the New York Times had a story condemning Comey, opining that Comey has become a lot more like Trump: “he has abetted his own transformation from a crucial witness to a character in the serial drama and nonstop spectacle of Trump’s life.”
Frankly, I find that comparison to be rather offensive but not entirely unexpected from the NYT. It’s entirely expected that they would insult Trump but not expected that they would insult Comey and even likening him to Trump.
But let’s try to view these things from a liberal’s point of view. How badly do you have to mess up for the media to get sick and tired of you even though you’ve been fighting a war with Trump the entire time? When someone expresses a conservative belief or thought, that person tends to be immediately shunned and attacked, forcing them to submission and apology. But Comey has done nothing short of being another typical Deep State Leftist at war with the POTUS and yet, he’s still being attacked by at least some members of the media who are theoretically in the same camp as Comey.
Again, how badly do you have to mess up for even your own people to dislike you when you’ve been striving to do precisely what they want you to do? Not to mention that this came surprisingly quickly.
I had predicted that Comey’s memoirs about Trump would eventually die out and the media would move on to something else, but I had also expected the media to milk that toxic cow for all its worth before moving on. The book has only come out YESTERDAY and the media has been sick of him since even before that.
Again, Navarro tweeted that on Monday, the day before Comey’s book came out. And she was already sick of him.
This whole storyline with Comey lasted about as long as the Democrats’ government shutdown. Of course, it’s not because of anything Comey has written in his book. It’s full of malarkey that the Left can’t get enough of. It’s been seemingly, given what the MSM sources have said, all about his ego and personality.
Now, I personally have not seen any interview with James Comey. I don’t care to watch a full hour of crap when I could be doing something far more productive. But there’s no doubt that the media and the Left have most, if not all, watched some interviews with James Comey. Furthermore, there’s no doubt that, aside from the Stormy Daniels story, James Comey was the biggest story for them to talk about.
They were hoping and even hyping this book to be the end or at least a key component in the destruction of Donald Trump. They were hanging on to every letter and word in that book and everything that came out of Comey’s mouth.
So you really have to be a narcissistic egomaniac to turn off people who are in your own side. And no, he’s not at all like Trump. Trump touts his accomplishments because virtually no one else will (have you even heard any story coming from the MSM about low black and Hispanic unemployment rates or Trump’s 50% approval rating?) But Trump never thinks himself better than everyone else in the room with him. That’s what the Left does.
The Academy Awards is one massive stink cloud of narcissism, egos and self-righteousness. Every member of the MSM acts as though every word they say is gospel and every word they type is sacred scripture. And those who wholly disagree with them are nothing but uncultured swine that don’t even deserve the time to be reading their “holy texts.”
And given James Comey is another Leftist, albeit as a bigger part of the Deep State, I’m not surprised that he shares the same common traits as his political peers. What I am surprised by, as I’ve said over and over again, is at how quickly people within his own political spectrum have come to grow tired of him.
It was likely inevitable, I suppose. Obama had soured on Comey eventually. So has former AG Loretta Lynch, as well as Hillary Clinton (though it’s arguably more understandable for her), and so did Trump before the President fired him.
Given all of these accounts, Comey is a pretty despicable person. Granted, I have my own reasons, as a conservative and Trump supporter, to dislike him, but it’s pretty interesting that even members of his own political side have come to at the very least dislike him.
And you really have to be a massive jerk in every aspect of your life for even the Left to dislike you despite your efforts against Trump.
“The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverted mouth, I hate.”
James Comey is set to release his book: “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership” on April 17th, 2018. Expectedly, the Left, upon reading excerpts from the book, is praising it and making the claim that there are issues in that book that could really hurt Trump. Spoiler alert: they’re all nothing-burgers.
But that’s a different matter entirely. What I’m focusing on is the fact that, because the media is praising the book and saying this will hurt Trump, the RNC released a video that shows Leftist hypocrisy at its highest.
The video is a compilation of Democrats calling into question Comey’s integrity, credibility and judgment.
The video features short clips of people like Sen. Chuck Schumer saying that he was “appalled by what Director Comey did” upon re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails; Sen. Bernie Sanders saying: “Comey acted in an outrageous way”; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi saying: “[Comey] made a mistake… not in the right job”; and even a tweet from Howard Dean reading: “[Comey] may have destroyed the credibility of the FBI forever.”
Which is really saying something when you fast-forward from that moment to today, when the FBI’s credibility as a whole is in tatters.
But perhaps one of the most telling quotes comes from Rep. Jerry Nadler, who said: “The President should fire Comey immediately and he ought to initiate an investigation.”
Now, unfortunately, I couldn’t quite confirm when Nadler said this, but I have every reason to believe he was talking about Obama, not Trump.
Furthermore, upon doing some more research, I came across an article, interestingly enough published on ABC News’ website, that depicts some of the very same Democrats in the video calling on Comey to resign.
First, they have Chuck Schumer, who said: “I do not have confidence in him any longer.”
Then, Nancy Pelosi, whom they quote with the very same quote from this video, saying that he’s not right for the job.
They also have Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN): “If Director Comey cares about the bureau and the rule of law… I’m sure upon reflection of this action, he will submit his letter of resignation for the nation’s good.”
They quote Rep. Maxine Waters: “All I can tell you is the FBI director has no credibility. That’s it.” And even said, in an interview with MSNBC in which she complained about Trump firing Comey, that “If [Clinton] had won the White House, I believe that, given what he did to her and what he tried to do, she should have fired him.”
I just love the Left’s hypocrisy some times.
From now on, every time you see James Comey tweeting at Trump and you see your friend retweeting what he said to or about him, remind them that even Democrats thought he was not credible and lacking in integrity.
Now, going beyond all of that, I believe this is a teachable moment.
You can clearly see what the Left thinks of James Comey when he acts in a way that they do not like. When he steps out of line. When he has some influence in the election and it’s not to hurt the Republican candidate. They attack, bash and destroy him. They question his credibility, his integrity, his judgment and even whether he’s the right person for the job… all of which is something we have been doing since Comey’s firing.
They loved him when he closed the investigation on the Clinton e-mails and let a criminal walk free but berate him when he re-opens the investigation and dealing a blow to Hillary’s chances of winning the election.
Now, I’m not going to say that that very action is what cost Hillary the election. Obama was the worst President of all time and she was just going to be more of the same and the country was tired of it. She was likely going to lose, open investigation or not. But I won’t deny that the re-opening of the investigation hurt Hillary to a certain extent.
Upon the closing of the investigation (the first time), the media had prime opportunity to bury any remnants of an investigation having ever taken place and focus more of their time on Trump. Closing the investigation would’ve allowed the Democrats to claim Hillary’s innocence, but all of those opportunities went out the window when Comey re-opened the investigation (before promptly closing it once more soon after because his friends were angry with him).
The Left’s bias is evident. When Comey helped Hillary, he was a “good guy”, “full of integrity” and “perfectly credible”. But when he steps out of line and does something to anger the Democrats aka doing the right thing, they berate and bash him, hoping to assassinate his character.
Now, he’s back where the Left wants him to be, as a martyr for the Leftist cause to take down Donald Trump, and they have nothing but good things to say about him and his book.
But all of that is irrelevant when there’s very accessible records of Democrats attacking Comey in much a similar way that Donald Trump attacks him. He has questioned his credibility, and evidently, so have the Democrats.
Now, if they’re hoping this book will be the end of Trump, they will be very much disappointed. I doubt this book, particularly when reminding people of what Democrats have said about the author, will do much if anything to harm Trump. If Michael Wolff’s book did nothing, neither will this.
At least this attempt at taking down Trump is a nice change of pace from giving credibility to a porn star. Though they will get back to her once the “hype” for this book dies down.
“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.”
Oh, the Left and their insane tactics to bring down Trump. This one is particularly funny, if I may say so myself. New York Times contributor Nicole Serratore wrote an opinion piece comparing former FBI director James Comey’s testimony to one that a sexual harassment victim would issue. Yes, the 6’8” James Comey was basically sexually harassed by the president, according to Serratore.
James Comey is the same height as LeBron James, and yet, Serratore says that he is comparable to a victim of sexual assault and harassment. You’ve gotta be KIDDING ME! Forget the fact that she is making light of a real issue women go through sometimes in the workplace. But the overall idea of a guy as tall as one of the best basketball players ever being compared to a sexual harassment victim is laughable. Even more so when you realize Trump is 6’2”. Comey is as tall as a Small Forward in the NBA and Trump is as tall as typical Point Guards in the NBA. For those of you who don’t know much about basketball, Point Guards are the shortest players on the court (usually) while Small Forwards are usually the 3rd tallest players on the court (out of five people).
The article writes: “As I listened to (Comey) tell the Senate Intelligence Committee about his personal meetings and phone calls with President Trump, I was reminded of something: the experience of a woman being harassed by her powerful, predatory boss.” I know that Serratore was siding with Comey and trying to defend him, but calling him a harassed woman isn’t going to help him. In school, if you’re a guy but are sometimes called a girl by some mean kids or bullies, you’re not typically going to take that well. It’s the same in the real world. Most guys definitely don’t want to be called girls, so calling Comey one isn’t going to help him, or his narrative, in the least.
The article continues: “On Jan 27, Mr. Comey received a last-minute dinner invitation from the president and then learned it would be ‘just the two of us.’ On Thursday (during the hearing), Mr. Comey revealed that he had to break a date with his wife in order to dine with Mr. Trump. Already, something about this ‘setup’ made him ‘uneasy’. The central business of this intimate dinner was Mr. Trump’s insistence: ‘I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.’ Mr. Comey immediately recognized that this was a press for something he didn’t want to give. He froze: ‘I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression…’ That reaction… is so relatable for any woman.”
Let’s point out some things that seem strange about this quote, shall we? First, why would the president expecting loyalty from YOUR FBI DIRECTOR be a bad thing? If you’re serving as the boss of the whole FBI, why wouldn’t it be expected to SHOW LOYALTY TO YOUR PRESIDENT? Secondly, I find it interesting that Serratore writes that Comey “immediately recognized that this was a press for something he didn’t want to give.” That doesn’t seem to be a direct quote from Comey, does it? This seems like it comes from Serratore’s own mouth. Those are HER words. SHE is trying to make Comey look like a terrified woman on the verge of being harassed by a predator. Meanwhile, all the president asked for is something any boss asks for, and that should be a guarantee: loyalty.
But finally, to make my larger point in this article: isn’t the Left’s hypocrisy unbelievable? Let’s not forget that A REAL SEXUAL ASSAULT VICTIM WAS SHUNNED BY THE LEFT! Did the Left just forget about MONICA LEWINSKY? She was ACTUALLY ASSAULTED by President Clinton. And the Left tried to SHUT HER DOWN! So while the Left tries to make bogus comparisons of Trump to a sexual harasser (because that’s really what they’re trying to achieve with that article), we’ll just continue to point out that a Democrat president did far more to damage women than the Left could ever say Trump has. (And let’s not forget that we’re talking about Comey, a 6'8" MAN!)
It’s truly unbelievable how far the Left will go to destroy Trump. But all they’re doing here is throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks. The Russian collusion story has fallen apart after 6 months of 0 evidence and Comey’s testimony. And now, they’re borderline saying Trump is a sexual predator (which they said he was 3 weeks before the election) by saying Comey’s testimony is similar to that of a sexual harassment victim’s testimony.
But this is simply who the Left is. Like the devil, they will lie, cheat and steal to get their way. Every day, they attempt to deceive the masses into believing that Trump is a reprobate, bigoted human being. Problem for them is, most people don’t believe what the Left (MSM and otherwise) says about him. The Left is so insanely filled with rage and hatred for Donald Trump that they will write any kind of story, regardless of how little sense it makes.
“Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.”
On June 8th, 2017, former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee about his firing from the FBI, the Russian investigation, included the Michael Flynn investigation and the Clinton e-mail investigation. And while there’s plenty of things to talk about within each subject, today I want to point out the hypocrisy of the Left. Specifically Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch directing the then-FBI director to call Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal a “matter” not an “investigation.”
Oh, yes. While the Left is calling foul play on Trump supposedly asking Comey to “drop the Michael Flynn issue” and saying that it’s obstruction of justice, then-AG Loretta Lynch not only suggested that Comey called the e-mail probe a “matter” rather than an investigation, she actually asked and directed him to do that, according to Comey.
If you remember, Loretta Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton on June, 2016. According to Comey, this meeting made him feel rather uncomfortable. He also said that the meeting between Lynch and the former president “convinced him that the independence of the investigation was tainted with regard to the Justice Department and led him to go public with the bureau’s findings on Clinton”, according to Circa.com.
Well, of course that meeting made him uncomfortable and distrustful of the DOJ! If the Attorney General meets in private with the spouse of one of the people the FBI is investigating, red flags are going to fly! Particularly when that same AG also asks the FBI director to call one of the FBI’s investigations a “matter” and not an actual “investigation”! Loretta Lynch asking the FBI director to do that is CLEAR OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE! Largely because it tries to diminish the importance of the e-mail scandal.
Now, don’t misunderstand, I still don’t really trust in many things Comey says. The official FBI statement on the Clinton e-mails made by Comey reads: “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent…”
In other words, since Comey couldn’t find any ill-intent in the way Hillary Clinton handled classified information, she gets a free pass. That’s precisely why I don’t trust Comey fully. He let Hillary off the hook because he doesn’t think she meant to mishandle classified information. This is a system that punishes people’s actions, not intentions. Unless you’re a big time Democrat, that is.
A murderer would never be let off the hook if he said “I didn’t mean to”. But Hillary Clinton IS let off the hook because Comey didn’t think she meant to mishandle classified info.
But here’s the reason why I choose to trust Comey on this instance: because he has no reason to mention that Loretta Lynch “directed” him to call the e-mail probe a “matter” rather than an “investigation”. Sen. Richard Burr had asked Comey “Was your decision (regarding Comey’s public statement on the e-mail investigation) influenced by the Attorney General’s tarmac meeting with the former President Bill Clinton?” That was the question Comey was asked. And yet, Comey CHOSE to mention Lynch’s order to call the probe a “matter”.
Comey essentially threw Lynch under the bus (even though the MSM will never focus on that part) by saying she directed him to refer to the investigation as a “matter”. The Left typically sticks up for its people unless it’s clear that they need to abandon one of their own. Comey, being part of the Left in this case, didn’t have a reason to throw Lynch under the bus, since he wasn’t directly asked if Lynch did what she did.
So that’s why I believe Comey when he said that, besides the fact that it definitely sounds like something Loretta Lynch would order to someone involved in the Clinton investigation. Which leads me - and likely many others - to believe that Lynch obstructed justice in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton. Which leads me to call out the Left for what hypocrites they are.
To them, Trump allegedly asking Comey to drop the Flynn matter was obstruction of justice in the Russian investigation, but Lynch directing Comey to call the probe not an investigation is just fine. They think it’s ok for Lynch to tell the FBI director to call it a “matter” in order to reduce the negative effect it would have on Clinton’s campaign and in order to make the e-mail scandal not seem like such a big deal.
Now, I know that neither the FBI nor the DOJ nor the MSM will go after Lynch for this. But I know that this kind of thing (corruption) doesn’t get ignored by God. God knows what is in Lynch’s heart. He knows what was in her mind when she met with Bill Clinton. And He heard the things they discussed in that meeting. He also knows what Lynch’s, Bill’s, and Hillary’s intentions have been regarding the whole matter. And while they might not face punishment here on Earth, they will eventually have to meet their Creator. And they can’t bribe or blackmail the Lord.
“The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
Lately, the biggest news story has been of Trump firing FBI director James Comey. I wrote about that last week. But looking back at that article, I made the point that the firing of James Comey has severely backfired on the Left because of what their narrative on him was before last week.
A couple of weeks prior to James Comey being fired, Hillary Clinton blamed Comey for her election loss in 2016. But that wasn’t the first time she’d blamed Comey for her loss. About a week after the election, Hillary Clinton blamed Comey for her loss, in a story covered by the NY Times.
You see, when the Left blames someone for something, they make their base do the same. Hillary voters, no doubt, were also blaming Comey for her loss, aside from Russia. How they can blame the two at the same time, since they both couldn’t be entirely responsible is beyond me, but that’s just the way the Left works: if they lose, it’s never their fault.
So basically, for about 9 months or so, the Left and its base were furious with Comey. And yet, when Trump fires him, they come to his defense and begin to side with him. They say that the reason Trump fired Comey is because Comey had asked for more funding to investigate the media-alleged Russian hack and Trump not only denied him, but let him go entirely. No doubt, they will theorize that the biggest reason Trump fired him is because he was getting too close to the truth.
But here’s the thing: Trump didn’t fire ALL OF THE FBI! Just because the director is fired, it doesn’t mean any ongoing investigation is halted in the least! All it means is that there will be someone new to ultimately report things to. And in the case of this “Russian hack” investigation, there is just about as much evidence to report today as there was when the investigation started: absolutely zero.
But let’s go back to my original point. The Left hated Comey up to the point that Trump fired him. Oddly enough, when Trump fired him, people were starting to compare the president to Nixon. Considering he used to be Hitler in their eyes, maybe they’re starting to warm up to him.
Jokes aside, this is a classic example of liberal flip-flopping. Not only that, it’s also an example of the Left using someone for their own benefits, regardless of what happens to that person or his family. Months ago, they blamed him for Hillary’s loss. Aside from Trump, he was one of the Left’s biggest enemies. The only reason he wasn’t fired under the Obama presidency is because he decided to not charge Hillary, giving the reason that there was no ill intention on her part.
Oddly enough, him doing that in particular is reason enough to warrant his firing. Firstly, he doesn’t get to decide the fate of someone the FBI is investigating. The FBI investigates people and then reports their findings to the DOJ so that THEY decide the suspect’s fate. Secondly, intentions don’t matter whatsoever in a case. A murderer doesn’t get to walk because he says: “I didn’t mean to.”, and the jury believes him. So it doesn’t matter what Hillary’s intentions were when it comes to the emails, the fact remains that she had an illegal server and deleted tens of thousands of emails to destroy any evidence of wrongdoing.
So the Left can come up with as many excuses as they want as to why Trump fired him. But the fact remains: Comey was a corrupt liberal who helped yet another corrupt liberal avoid jail-time, at least for about a year.
Although, one thing is for sure: it’s funny seeing the Left make a fool of themselves attacking a person one week and defending them the next.
All of this is rooted in corruption. A corrupt individual let another, even more corrupted individual walk free of any crime because it wouldn’t be advantageous to his corrupted party.
At the end of the day, corruption is just another weapon in the devil’s arsenal. The thing about it is that it’s a rather powerful weapon. Corruption only affects those with power. People with power often times decide the fate of people without power. And if corruption runs amok, there isn’t much hope for those with less or no power. It’s the reason we choose to elect people like Trump, someone who’s had plenty of money and power and has never shown signs of corruption. It’s also the reason we pray to the Lord, as He’s the One who can take away anyone’s power in an instant and place better people in positions of authority.
“For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.”
Definitely. Even though Hillary blamed the now former-FBI director James Comey for her election loss, he was essentially the only one keeping Hillary out of trouble with the Bureau.
One of the biggest wishes Trump supporters had during the election was that Trump would, to quote the masses, “lock her up!” And now that the only person that was in the way of that happening is gone, the chances of her actually getting locked up have surged.
The firing of James Comey, which has thrown the Left for a loop (I’ll explain why in a bit), is a rather large part of “draining the swamp.” Yes, I believe that, beyond defeating the Democrat party and Republican establishment hacks in Congress, it’s important to look at other areas of the federal government, such as intelligence agencies, which have played a major role in this last election.
If Trump is to “drain the swamp”, firing James Comey was a big step towards doing just that. You see, intelligence agencies, much like the mainstream media, collaborate with, and in favor of, the Democrat party. Why else would Hillary still be walking free as of the writing of this article? If Comey had been unbiased and done his job of investigating those who commit crimes, regardless of their position of power, Hillary would be part of a cast of a real-life ‘Orange Is The New Black’. In other words, she would be in jail, by now. But because intelligence agencies side with the Left, Hillary is as free as a bird (hopefully, only for now.)
Now, all Trump has to do is put in place someone who won’t side with the Left out of political principle and simply do the job they were hired to do: bust those who commit crimes worthy of FBI investigation. Hopefully, this means Hillary will be further investigated and eventually prosecuted for her crooked deeds. Now, all I worry about is the women that Bill will likely chase once Hillary is behind bars. I pray for their safety.
Now unto a slightly different topic within this subject: what I meant when I say “the firing of James Comey has thrown the Left for a loop.” The day Trump fired Comey, Stephen Colbert felt compelled to inform his audience in the “Late Show” of this firing. Expecting his audience to boo, Colbert was astonished that his audience cheered when hearing the news. When Colbert heard his audience cheering, he was visibly confused and even thought that his audience was full of huge Trump supporters. Obviously, this being a Comedy Central show, that would not be the case at all, but that was not the reaction Stephen Colbert expected at all.
You see, this is an example of a Leftist media narrative that backfires horrendously on them. To Colbert, a liberal comedian who covers the “news”, the firing of James Comey was a bad thing, because he knows what this means for Hillary and the Left in general. He’s discussed this with his buddies in the elitist leftist circles, no doubt. So he knows that this was a bad thing for her. But his audience, is a different story. The Left has wired people into believing what they say. If Hillary blames Comey for her loss, her voters are going to do the same. They will hate James Comey for ruining Hillary’s chances at being president. So, if the big bad Comey is gone, they react with glee.
Like I said, this is an example of a narrative the Left creates that backfires on them in a huge way. God sure does have good timing and a sense of humor, doesn’t He? He knew what Hillary was going to do, placing the blame on Comey. He also knew what Trump planned to do with Comey. And this whole thing has been one big negative for the Left.
God’s timing is simply great. I was happy with Comey just being fired, but, oh how I love it when the Left is made to look foolish.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
