Watchdog report: FBI's Russia probe justified, no bias found

When does a ‘watchdog’ morph into a Lap-Dog?

AG Barr disagrees with Horowitz report on Russia probe launch
(may have to copy-paste link into browser to view fox article)
“The inspector general’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken,” Barr said in a statement.
-
US Attorney Durham: “Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the FBI Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” Durham said in a statement.

WSJ:  Kimberley Strassel on IG report: Adam Schiff 'owes the country an enormous apology' 
https://www.foxnews.com/media/strassel-ig-report-a-triumph-for-nunes-trouble-for-schiff 
(may have to copy-paste link into browser to view fox article) 
“Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel said Tuesday that the release of Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz’s report on the origins of the Russia investigation and the issuance of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants for a Trump campaign official was a triumph for House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and trouble for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.” 
-
-
Obama’s FBI-IG Michael E. Horowitz reviewed the actions of top FBI operatives in the malfeasant-investigation, of the Trump Campaign, and concluded that all is OK.
There were major mistakes made, documents were forged and the so called dossier (paid for by Hillary) was clearly a FISA Court problem, But, no one acted with bias or political intent.
-
Hillary channeling $700,000 through McAuliffe to the Virginia Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of the FBI #2 official investigating Hillary’s email malfeasance, apparently is OK with the FBI-IG.
-
Apparently it was OK for FBI #2 McCabe to totally whitewash Hillary’s National Security Malfeasance's
-
McCabe now works for CNN --  talk about a good match
-
Apparently Horowitz didn’t view the FBI love-birds emails about Trump in the same light as Rep. Cheney:
Strzok-Page texts sound ‘like a coup,’ could be ‘treason’
-

In the meantime the DNC fabricated Trump Impeach Coup rolls on:

PravdaMedia Inventing Bad Fake Jobs News

-
Roanoke Times, 12-5-19, Pg Bus Pg 8:
Survey: Few Jobs added in Nov – unemployment will be up with less than 100,000 new jobs
Roanoke.com: 12-4-2019: Survey: Businesses added just 67,000 jobs in November
-
-
PravdaMedia Desperately seeking Bad News – any Bad News – even if it’s Fake News – How Pathetic!
Hyping and Promoting the Democrat Coup of Trump is Not enough.
He might still get reelected!!!  What to do?  What to do?
It’s the Economy Stupid! – That might get him reelected!
Let’s invent Fake Jobs News – that’ll sink him!
-
REALITY REAL NEWS:
US job growth roars back in November, with 266,000 added
Employers add 266,000 jobs, unemployment rate drops to 50-year low of 3.5%
U.S. hiring surged in November, as the economy added 266,000 jobs and unemployment returned to a half-century low, a sign the U.S. is powering through a global slowdown.
The payroll number easily topped the estimate of 180,000 from economists surveyed by Refinitiv, who also saw the unemployment rate holding steady from October's 3.6 percent.

Kelly Loeffler New Georgia US Republican Senator

-
Businesswoman Kelly Loeffler, who was tapped to succeed Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson on Wednesday, is a political newcomer
-

What people will learn about me is that I'm a proud patriot, a devoted wife, & a devout Christian. A life-long Republican who is unapologetically pro-2nd Amendment, pro-military, pro-wall, & pro-Trump. I am strongly pro-life & make no apologies for my conservative values. #gapol

-
Out of the $3.2 million Loeffler and Sprecher have donated to political action committees, less than 3 percent went to Democratic candidates or causes.
-
Loeffler is set to take office on Jan. 1 after Isakson retires. She was appointed by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on Wednesday. Isakson was reelected to a third term in 2016 but announced he would step down amid health concerns as he battles Parkinson’s disease.

Food Stamp Rules Changing

-
Feds tighten food stamp rules: 688,000 adults must work or lose benefits
-
-
At a time of prosperity and job growth and availability is it too much to ask that those on government (tax-payer) dependency make a sincere effort to find a job?
-
We are a benevolent country and people who strongly believe in a safety-net for those less fortunate, however, for able bodied persons who have an opportunity to be employed, is it too much to ask that they try diligently to find a job?
-
An extended question is why are we not reallocating Food Stamp Money to Public School “Free” Food Programs where that applies?

Three Obama-Professors Big Pathetic Disappointment

-
Obama, the consummate constitutional professor, had Three of his ilk testify for the House Judicial Committee and Chair D-NY Jerry Nadler who has been calling for Trump’s Impeachment for three-years (so much for fair and impartial jurisprudence!).
-
The Pathetic Three Professors had no new evidence or facts of impeachable acts and therefore had No value-add to this political coup farce.
-
The Forth Professor, Mr Turley -- took issue with those making judgements with No evidence of wrong-doing.
He addressed the Chair Nadler with this profound statement:
There is abuse of power here -- and it's Your Abuse of Power!
-
One of the Obama-Three, Mrs Karlan, made a disgusting and despicable sick joke about Trump's young minor son Baron.  Talk about sick pathetic bias!
Melania Trump called-out Karlan on twitter from the NATO meeting in Europe:
-
-
Did anyone ever abuse the Obama children like this low-life did?
This is the Constitutional Law Prof the Democrats showcase for their case against The President!  Really?  A pox be on all their houses!
-
-
Hearings sour independents on impeachment: 'They look at this as political'
-
-
Clearly there has been No evidence that Trump has committed high crimes justifying Impeachment!
Political Hate and Anger are Not a basis for Impeachment!
-
What a dangerous precedent these Democrats are setting!

Harris Drops Out Of 2020 Race Dropping Race Card

-
Kamala Harris: "Elephant In The Room" Is Is America Ready For A Black Woman To Be President?
-
-
Really Kamala?  American’s Not Ready for a Black Woman?
It’s Not America that didn’t support you!
It was the Radical Left-Wing Democrat Partyites that rejected you!
Your record as a Prosecutor was a nonstarter with these Lefties!
Your vacillation on issues like ‘Medicare for all’ didn’t help.
-
Ending your campaign with a Racist barb at the American People is Sad and Disgusting and very Unbecoming!
Shades of Obama and his hacks AG Eric Holder and Susan Rice.
Hopefully you’ll disappear back into the California fog, smoke, and homeless squalor and we’ll not see your likes again!

Perhaps joining Sharpton and Jackson will provide opportunities with kindred racist spirits.

UN Chief In Denial Of World Energy And AGW Reality

-
Roanoke Times, 12-4-2019, Pg 1, 3: UN chief on climate fight and call for end to coal.
Va. pg 1, 6: Va institutions target 2030 for carbon neutral
Pelosi led a delegation of more than a dozen Democratic members of Congress to the climate talks to declare that they stand by the 2015 Paris accord, from which President Donald Trump recently announced the U.S. would withdraw.
-
-
The Reality:
-
1. The US deserves praise as the world leader in reducing our carbon foot-print with a responsible dynamic mix of market-driven sources that require 24 X 7 X 365 reliability, availability and afordability.
-
-
-
2. Where’s China in all this bluster?  Bigger than sum of all others!
-
-
The new additional China coal power projects would be more than Germany’s existing installed power capacity of around 200 GW by the end of 2018.
-
3. The AGW Models are belied by Reality Data - Modeling Error = 4X Reality Data

Law-abiding Americans Buying Legal Guns

-
Americans Bought Enough Guns on Black Friday to Arm the Marine Corps (Again)
“According to the FBI, over 200,000 background check requests associated with the purchase of a firearm were submitted to the agency on Black Friday, marking the second highest gun sales day ever. The previous record was set on the day after Thanksgiving in 2016. In both 2017 and 2016, enough guns were potentially purchased on Black Friday to arm every active duty United States Marine.”
-
-
Roanoke Times continues on with their anti-second amendment jihad:
-
-
-
It is indeed sad that the PravdaMedia refuses to distinguish between the millions of lawful American gun owners and the thousands of felons and their illegal weapons.
The Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement
“The anti NRA onslaught is clearly integral to the anti legal-gun-owner movement.
Note: how many NRA members are part of the gun-violence problem? Negligible!
This anti-gun effort is focused on demonizing and denigrating the Legal and Lawful gun owners while ignoring the criminals and illegal gun issues deemed to be problematic based on the racial statistics of the problem.  To wit:
10,000 illegal guns taken off streets of Chicago in 2019”
-
Chicago Police Chief Johnson used the announcement to criticize …….. the treatment of gun offenders in court.”
The Chief was then fired by Chicago’s Democrat mayor

Winter Records For Thanksgiving Week

-
This Thanksgiving Week of 2019 has set records across the US for low temperatures, major snow and strong winds, arriving well before the official start of winter.
Perhaps it’s a sign of ‘Reality Progress’ that the PravdaMedia is Not hawking the Goreite man-made global warming claims this week.
Perhaps they are starting to recognize the major Natural variability in weather and climate and the very weak scientific link between man-made CO2 and climate (something about Skepticism and Critical Thinking).
-
-
‘Record’ Cold For October and November 2019 -- Nature Belies Gorites
-
-
A major record-setting 1950 Thanksgiving winter storm before any significant manmade CO2:
-
November 24-25, 1950: The Great Appalachian Storm
Coburn Creek, West Virginia, reported the greatest snowfall total with 62 inches.
During Thanksgiving weekend in 1950, a storm rolled into the Appalachian Mountains bringing piles of snow with it. Coburn Creek, West Virginia, got 62 inches of snow, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The 1950 storm is considered one of the worst wind events ever recorded. Winds gusted up to 160 mph on Mount Washington, New Hampshire, and it was the costliest storm up until that time, according to the National Weather Service.
160 people died in the storm by the time it was over.
-
-
As for real Blizzards: 8 out of 10 of the US biggest blizzards occurred before any significant man-made CO2:

Democrat Billionaires Feeding The US-PravdaMedia

-
Feeding the US-PravdaMedia --  feeding time at the zoo!
They have to be fed, they’re always hungry and they can’t eat hay!
-
After buying the Virginia State Elections for the Democrats
Bloomberg is now spending $100-millon to feed the US-PravdaMedia and damage Trump as much as possible going into the 2020 elections.
Bloomberg Will Spend $100 Million on Anti-Trump Online Ad Blitz
-
Bloomberg has No probability of being the Democrat nominee, but, he can influence who is the nominee and in the process feed the US-PravdaMedia who are the core Propaganda arm of Obama’s-Resist and The DNC.
-
All this also applies to Tom Steyer who has committed to spending at least $100 million of his own money on his campaign and has already bought $1 million in TV advertising in the first four primary and caucus states, according to ad tracker Advertising Analytics.
-
Bloomberg and Steyer are compelled to act now because the voters and Obama are disappointed with ‘Sleepy Joe’ and the Ukrainian-Burisma thing is becoming a real liability for Joe and Obama.
-
And The Mueller Russia Coup was a dud.
-
And The Schiff-Impeach Coup is looking very dull and starving for a ‘real smoking gun’ and real evidence of impeachable wrong-doing.
-
-
With two billionaires on the Democrat Stage, Bloomberg and Steyer, it’s difficult to see how Socialists Bernie and Pocahontas have any oxygen to breathe no less run – good news, however bad news, how did JFK’s Democrat Party slide into the Socialist Swamp?
Bolshevik’s at the gate –  Very Scary Stuff!
-
Who says Democrat’s don’t buy elections?
Most famous example was JFK’s father and his day after statement:
I bought an election (Illinois and Texas) – I didn’t buy a landslide!
-

 

The Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement

-
There are a number of Rural Virginians who are petitioning their county BOS’s to enact a Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolution recognizing the Reality that the Second Amendment still stands as a Basic American Right derived from The Constitution!
-
It appears that these Virginian-Americans are motivated by the pronouncements and actions of many Democrats whose stated objectives are to nullify the Second Amendment and move to either confiscate personal firearms and or pass laws so restrictive or onerous as to effectively confiscate.
-
It’s of interest that this movement has resulted in a tsunami of hostile anti gun-owner editorials and LTE’s and commentary in the PravdaMedia.
-
This bears witness and creditability to the existence and ferocity of the anti Second Amendment zealots and the need to confront them at every opportunity.
The anti NRA onslaught is clearly integral to the anti legal-gun-owner movement.
Note: how many NRA members are part of the gun-violence problem? Negligible!
-
This effort is focused on demonizing and denigrating the Legal and Lawful gun owners while ignoring the criminals and illegal gun issues deemed to be problematic based on the racial statistics of the problem.  To wit:
10,000 illegal guns taken off streets of Chicago in 2019: police
“Chicago police say they have passed a milestone in illegal gun seizures.
Police have confiscated more than 10,000 guns from city streets so far in 2019, police Supt. Eddie Johnson said in a news conference.
That beats the 9,800 guns recovered in 2018, Johnson said. The department averages about 7,000 guns seized each year.
Johnson used the announcement to criticize …….. the treatment of gun offenders in court.”
-
Chicago is a Sanctuary City – not clear who is getting ‘saved’?
Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the US.
To their credit -- Chicago does have a ‘stop and frisk’ law.
Apparently their Obama-Judges are of the ‘Turn’um Loose Bruce” ilk!

Ongoing Roanoke Times antiBusiness Propaganda

-
Layoff sad after 62-years!    Really?
-
How sad!  Man gets ‘laid off’ at 81-years old after 62-years at GE Salem!
-
This should have been a positive uplifting story about a young unskilled worker, with very limited skill or knowledge, who was hired by GE Salem, employed, trained, and upgraded over 62-years with outstanding benefit packages in a good workplace environment.
-
Instead it’s a long sad story about trying to make GE Salem look bad as, over time; their primary products demand have scaled-down resulting in a downsizing process.
-
What a great opportunity to also highlight the impact on grossly unfair tariffs and trade-policies that have disadvantaged our industries and our workers since the 60's.
-
At this point the article could have spent time emphasizing the ongoing major Trump Trade Initiatives with ALL our so called trading ‘partners’ and demanding that the Democrats get on board to help American workers and companies get a level playing field.
-
-
Perhaps the RT could do their next story in this series:
‘Businesses are bad and layoffs are sad’
on the multitude of Roanoke Times personnel who have been ‘laid off’ over the last dozen years!
Interview each one of them and lay-out the impacts upon them and their families, none of which are 81 nor worked for the RT for 62-years with a great GE benefits package.
Emphasize that their employment plight ties directly to the decisions made by the RT management to alienate half of their potential customers with their slanted and biased left-wing political propaganda instead of promoting fair and balanced news that would be acceptable as ‘real news’ to ALL members of the community.
-
Difficult Decisions At The Roanoke Times

Racial School Busing Again – Really?

-
More Obama Legacy:
Apparently too much racial harmony in Maryland – let’s fix that!
Let’s start massive school busing to fix what we’ll call:
“socioeconomic and racial segregation in the school system.”
Interesting:  Busing wasn’t an issue when Obama was ‘in’ office – just the cops!
-
-
Maryland Schools redistricting plan is the wrong approach
The government should not force a child to switch schools because of his or her family’s socioeconomic status. Yet, Howard County’s redistricting scheme uproots more than 7,300 students by redrawing school boundaries on the basis of family income — and, consequently, race. County officials say such discrimination solves “socioeconomic and racial segregation in the school system.”
That pretext, however, is not true. In 2017, The Baltimore Sun reported that “Howard County is the most integrated school district in the region. ... Children of different races — those who are black and white — are more likely to sit next to each other in Howard than almost anywhere else in the state.”
-
-
After all the effort and damage caused by busing – with very limited positive outcomes – we’re doing it again in 2019.
Is this the best the Liberal – Progressive – Democrats can do for our Country?   Really?

November 22, 1963 Assassination Of JFK

-
November 22, 1963: Death of the President
The most comprehensive library of JFK’s life
-
-
JFK RIP: How Soon We Forget
-
-
Quote from President JFK to the 5th Corps troops assembled at the
Fliegerhorst Kasserne in Hanau Germany on his way to Berlin in 1963 for his "Ich bin ein Berliner" Speech:
God and the soldier we adore
In times of danger, not before
The danger passed and all wrongs righted
Gods forgotten and the soldier slighted
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2018/11/jfk-rip-how-soon-we-forget.html
-
-
-
-
-
Current Conjecture:
JFK would be totally disappointed with the left-wing pro-socialist domination of his party going forward to 2020.
He was first to declare Russia and Communism an Evil Empire.
Communist Russia - the place Bernie took his wife for their honeymoon.
Perhaps that's why there's a US-PravdaMedia ‘blackout’ of this significant day in American History.
-
JFK's:   “Ask not what your country can do for you
              Ask what you can do for your country!”
would also Not be popular on the 2020 Democrat debate stage today!
