Robert Mueller Adopts Stalinist Tactics

By Daniel John Sobieski  6-23-17

We may be thankful to Alan Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, at Harvard Law School, for reminding us of the delicious irony of an investigation which began with “reports” of collusion with the Russians by Team Trump and charges of Russian hacking of our elections, now reverting to the tactics of Russia’s most murderous tyrant, Josef Stalin. As Dershowitz writes in the Washington Examiner:
Special counsel Robert Mueller was commissioned to investigate not only crime but the entire Russian "matter." That is an ominous development that endangers the civil liberties of all Americans.
Federal prosecutors generally begin by identifying specific crimes that may have been committed -- in this case, violation of federal statutes. But no one has yet identified the specific statute or statutes that constrain Mueller's investigation of the Russian matter. It is not a violation of any federal law for a campaign to have collaborated with a foreign government to help elect their candidate…
One does not have to go back to the Soviet Union and Lavrentiy Beria's infamous boast to Stalin, "Show me the man and I will show you the crime," in order to be concerned about the expansion of elastic criminal statutes. There are enough examples of abuse in our own history.
From McCarthyism to the failed prosecutions of Sen. Ted Stevens, Rep. Thomas DeLay, Gov. Rick Perry and others, we have seen vague criminal statutes stretched in an effort to criminalize political differences.
Indeed, now we here reports that Mueller’s investigation will range anywhere from Jared Kutchner’s finances to perhaps any unpaid parking tickets Sean Spicer may have. To paraphrase the boast of head of Stalin’s secret police,  show Mueller the man, and he will find a crime, just as Mueller’s best friend, James Comey, found with Martha Stewart.

"Liberals know damn well that their audience includes a not-insignificant portion of foaming-at-the-mouth lunatics, prepared, at the slightest provocation, to smash windows, burn down neighborhoods, physically attack and even murder conservatives."

Ann Coulter: The Left Has One More Argument–Kill Them!

Ann Coulter   June 21, 2017

After a Bernie Sanders supporter tried to commit mass murder last week—the second homicidal Bernie supporter so far this year—the media blamed President Trump for lowering the bar on heated political rhetoric by calling his campaign opponents cruel names like “Crooked Hillary” and “Lyin’ Ted.”
As soon as any conservative responds to Trump’s belittling names for his rivals by erupting in a murderous rage, that will be a fantastically good point. But until then, it’s idiotic. Unlike liberals, conservatives aren’t easily incited to violence by words.
What we’re seeing is the following: Prominent liberals repeatedly tell us, with deadly seriousness, that Trump and his supporters are: “Hitler,” “fascists,” “bigots,” “haters,” “racists,” “terrorists,” “criminals” and “white supremacists,” which is then followed by liberals physically attacking conservatives.

Fifteen Lawyers in Search of a Crime


by Mark Steyn  Steyn on America  
Further to my observations on Deep State dinner theatre, the "Russia investigation" show goes on, undeterred by the lack of any evidence of actual crime: The more obvious the absence of any crime to investigate, the bigger the investigation gets. As I've said before, in Hitchcockian terms, this is a thriller without a MacGuffin: instead, it's one big MacNuffin - unless you count the "collusion" between government bureaucracies and the Hillary campaign in surveilling their political opposition before the election, or FBI honcho Jim Leaky leaking material to The New York Times to get his buddy Bob Mueller appointed as "Special Counsel".
That last one worked - notwithstanding calls for a Special Counsel to investigate the Special Counsel over his ties to the FBI Director who wanted the Special Counsel. This is a very Washington creature-feature: the Blob feasts on nothing. So at the Deep State dinner theatre Mr Mueller is now casting an army of extras. With the usual money-no-object lavishness of the world's premier five-star swamp, the Special Counsel has appointed, to date, 14 lawyers to his "investigation", "with more still to come". In a fascinating column, my old colleague Andrew McCarthy puts this prosecutorial football squad in perspective:
Andy was the lead counsel in the prosecution of the Blind Sheikh for the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. It led to a nine-month trial of twelve defendants. The Government somehow managed to pull that off with three prosecutors plus an appellate lawyer.
A couple of years before that, Andy was on the "Pizza Connection" Mafia case - a 17-month trial of 22 defendants. In that one, he was the junior member among five government lawyers, and many of his peers thought the size of the prosecution team was "excessive".

Mutton dressed as man: Superstitious villagers living in fear after sheep gives birth to 'half-human half-beast' creature that was 'sent by the devil'

Democrats Block Witnesses from Testifying in House Intel Probe

Scheduled appearance by key witness Carter Page canceled

BY:   June 20, 2017

House Democrats are continuing to block testimony from about a dozen witnesses who sought to appear before the intelligence oversight panel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Congressional officials said one of the key witnesses, former informal adviser to the Trump campaign Carter Page, was scheduled to testify at a closed hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
But Democrats on the committee blocked the testimony, asserting they needed more time to prepare.
"He's the guy that many Democrats have been pointing to as the supposed mastermind and you would think they were interested hearing his story," said one Capitol Hill official.
Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the committee's Democratic leader, did not respond to emails seeking comment on the blocked testimony.
Schiff has asserted in the past that evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign is "more than circumstantial," contrary to other intelligence and congressional oversight members who have said there is no evidence.

Tamar Hallerman  from April 24, 2017

WASHINGTON – An ethics group is alleging that U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson improperly aided the campaign of his onetime aide, 6th District candidate Jon Ossoff, using his official House website.
The conservative-leaning Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, or FACT, said it plans to file an ethics complaint against the Lithonia Democrat with the Office of Congressional Ethics Monday.
The group wants the independent ethics office to investigate Johnson for potentially running aground of a House ethics rule that bars lawmakers from using their taxpayer-funded office for partisan campaign activities.

Teen girl who texted boyfriend to kill himself guilty of manslaughter


Michelle Carter responsible for beau's sucide, decides court

Kieren McCarthy

The teenager who repeatedly urged and encouraged her boyfriend to kill himself with hundreds of text messages has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
Michelle Carter, now 20, was 17 when she spent several months pushing 18-year-old Conrad Roy – who she referred to as her boyfriend – to commit suicide.
Most shockingly, the court heard that when Roy backed out of his plan and left his truck – in which he was running a gasoline-operated water pump in order to choke on the truck's fumes – and texted Carter saying he was "scared," she texted him back and told him to "get back in."
The two then spoke by phone, and Roy went through with his plan, dying of carbon monoxide poisoning on July 12, 2014. Carter later texted a friend and told her she was "talking on the phone with him when he killed himself ... I heard him die."
Carter waived her right to a jury trial, meaning that the verdict was delivered by Massachusetts Judge Lawrence Moniz. He found her guilty, calling her actions "wanton and reckless conduct" and noted that she had caused his death "by instructing Mr Roy to get back in the truck" – something that she knew would result in "a high degree of likelihood that substantial harm would result."

EXCLUSIVE: Soros, Clinton-Linked Teneo Among Donors to McCain Institute

by Richard Pollock 6-19-17

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain in 2012 turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.
The institute is intended to serve as a “legacy” for McCain and “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom.” It is a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University.
Conservative and liberal critics, however, believe the institute constitutes a major conflict of interest for McCain, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.
...
Critics worry that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.
The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.

As a Kid, I'd throw them as make believe hand grenades

Avocado Trees were all over the landscape of Los Angeles surrounding the homes throughout the LA basin. They were moderately popular for guacamole, but not the anywhere near the hot diet fad of today. 
It's interesting to watch their retail price changes on the grocery shelves. At WHOLE FOODS and TRADER JOES they are always a ripoff. Most stores were seeing them for a dollar or two in the winter, when they are in season in California. Then the price doubled for a while as their diet craze hit. That lasted until the avocados started to soften and blacken in the produce departments as people passed on them because of the price. Now they have dropped to a buck and quarter. 
No matter what, the market prevails, especially when the product will turn soft and black. m/r


Holy guacamole! Workers pilfered $300,000 worth of avocados, police say

by Veronica Rocha  6-16-17

The glorious avocado — known for its its pebbly armored skin, succulent green flesh and soaring price — is enjoying a global surge in popularity of late.
Whether it’s the featured ingredient in an outrageously priced serving of avocado toast or the culprit in a sudden increase in avocado-cutting hand injuries, one thing is clear: People are crazy about the heart-healthy fruit.
In fact, authorities say that growing popularity could have driven three workers from an Oxnard-based produce company to pilfer $300,000 worth of avocados recently.
“They are in demand. Everybody loves avocados,” said Sgt. John Franchi of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.
Carlos Chavez, 28, of Oxnard; Rahim Leblanc, 30, also of Oxnard; and Joseph Valenzuela, 38, of Santa Paula, were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of grand theft of avocados, the Sheriff’s Office said. It is unclear how many pounds were stolen.

McCain: ‘Never Said’ U.S. Leadership Was Better Under Obama Than Trump

McCain sems to be about as cogent as Brennan
WASHINGTON — Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain denied Monday that he said U.S. leadership under President Donald Trump is worse than when Barack Obama was in office.
“I never said such a thing. A thousand times I said, ‘Look at the world in 2009 and look at it today.’ Of course, I never said [that]. If I did I was joking,” McCain told The Daily Caller.
The Guardian published an interview with McCain Sunday that quoted him as saying American leadership under Obama was better than it is now under Trump. The statement was in response to when he was asked about President Trump’s criticism of London Mayor Sadique Khan.
The Guardian described McCain as “visibly irked” when asked about the message Trump gave to Britain.

Republican lawmakers consider override of concealed-carry restrictions in wake of ambush

by Margaret Menge | Updated 16 Jun 2017

Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.) said Thursday on “The Laura Ingraham Show” that it is “imperative” that members of Congress have the right to carry weapons to defend themselves following the shooting rampage at the baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia. During the attack, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), the No. 3 Republican in the House of Representatives, and three others were shot by an angry left-wing activist who’d volunteered for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
“The fact that we should be able to have an opportunity to practice our Second Amendment right to be able to arm ourselves in a concealed way, I think, is certainly common sense at this point,” Walker said.
Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) said on Wednesday that after the shooting, which has left Scalise in critical condition with serious internal damage, he will carry a gun at all public events.

They used to be called “megalomaniacs”, people who had outsized, larger than life images of themselves. Today they’re described as having narcissistic personality disorder, characterized by a sense of their own grandiose uniqueness. Not having a true sense of their own self, narcissists create themselves in the roles they play. They are the heroes of their own lives. Everyone else is a bit player. James Comey was such a man. He was Hamlet. Everyone else was Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.
Comey identified with theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, who believed that political life should serve moral ends. And being a prosecutor, Comey believed, meant doing the right thing “by definition.” Think of it as a syllogism. If A is a prosecutor, then A is doing the right thing. A is a prosecutor. Therefore A is doing the right thing. Quod erat demonstrandum
Then, when his downfall came, when he was fired by President Trump, Comey saw himself as Saint Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, Henry II’s “meddlesome priest.” That’s what he told the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8.

He said he appealed to government officials, from members of Congress to former Secretary of State John Kerry, to help free his 22-year-old son, who was jailed for removing a propaganda poster in 2016.
Fred said he was told to stay quiet so as not to “upset” the North Koreans.
“We relied on this false premise that they would treat Otto fairly and let him go,” he said.

THE ‘RESISTANCE' GOES LIVE-FIRE



The explosion of violence against conservatives across the country is being intentionally ginned up by Democrats, reporters, TV hosts, late-night comedians and celebrities, who compete with one another to come up with the most vile epithets for Trump and his supporters.

They go right up to the line, trying not to cross it, by, for example, vamping with a realistic photo of a decapitated Trump or calling the president a "piece of s---" while hosting a show on CNN.

The media are orchestrating a bloodless coup, but they're perfectly content to have their low-IQ shock troops pursue a bloody coup.

This week, one of the left's foot soldiers gunned down Republican members of Congress and their staff while they were playing baseball in Virginia. Democratic Socialist James Hodgkinson was prevented from committing a mass murder only by the happenstance of a member of the Republican leadership being there, along with his 24-hour Capitol Police protection.

Remember when it was frightening for the losing party not to accept the results of an election? During the third debate, Trump refused to pre-emptively agree to the election results, saying he'd "look at it at the time."

The media responded in their usual laid-back style:

Meddlesome Hypocrisy

Steve Baldwin  June 14, 2017

While the media obsess over an alleged Russian conspiracy to collude with Donald Trump to affect America’s 2016 presidential election, what about Obama’s interference in the elections of other countries? Most Americans have no idea that President Obama meddled in elections all over the world. And apparently, the media decided there’s no reason for Americans to know about this illegal activity.
Indeed, in 2016, the Los Angeles Times did a story on how America has interfered with other nation’s elections in the past, but they stopped short of mentioning the various foreign elections Obama tried to influence. But the same article reports that Obama “slapped Russia with new penalties for meddling in the U.S. Presidential election… by hacking into Democratic and Republican computer networks and selectively releasing emails.” Hypocrisy check, anyone?
Since that article appeared last December, it has essentially become fake news. The Republican National Committee was never successfully hacked into and evidence is mounting that the DNC was not hacked by Russia. Not only has Wiki Leaks itself insisted Russia was not the source, but a number of cyber security experts, including McAfee antivirus developer John McAfee, disputes this. McAfee says the hack on the DNC “used a piece of malware a year and half old” and was “not an organized hack and certainly not a nation-state that did this.” Moreover, the DNC has never allowed the FBI or any government agency to analyze the computers in question.

From the Kremlin via Skopje to the power corridors of Washington, the Hungarian-born Jewish emigre is the favourite bete noire of nationalists around the globe.
Listed by Forbes magazine as the world's 29th richest man, Soros and his Open Society Foundations (OSF) stand accused of political meddling by seeking to push a liberal, multicultural agenda.
Nations like Poland that once bestowed the 86-year-old with their highest civilian honours are now calling him an enemy of the state who wants to destroy their sovereignty.
The attacks have been particularly virulent in his birth country Hungary, which on Tuesday is set to pass a controversial anti-NGO bill seen as directly targeting the OSF.

1) The FBI should not be in the counter-intelligence business. There are, as Democrats never tire of pointing out, "17 intelligence agencies", which is, by my count, 15 too many. We should at least get it down to 16, by eliminating what's meant to be a domestic policing agency.
2) As I've pointed out in recent weeks, someone seems to be holding the US Constitution upside down: We have courtrooms presuming to be legislatures, and the legislature pretending to be a courtroom. Both perversions are part of the systemic dysfunction that obstructs proper representative government. The allegedly Republican Congress should investigate less, and try legislating some of the President's agenda.

Soros’ Instagram, a go-to for Manhattan nightlife, drunken karaoke parties, lobster feasts, Bono selfies, and refugee camps, has recently been updated with an influx of photos showing the playboy heir chumming it up with Congressman John Lewis and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
In the photo with Schumer, which was posted Friday afternoon, the two are hunched over a table with three alcoholic-looking drinks. Though Soros appears to be holding his own thanks to his background in surviving notorious New York Fashion Week parties, Schumer, aka Senator Buzzkill, looks quite faded.

Government is Racist to legal marijuana business

Even More Racism!

Published on Jun 10, 2017
The explosion of the legal marijuana business already shows signs of "savage inequalities." Background checks deny licenses to applicants with previous drug offenses. That disproportionately disenfranchises African-Americans, who, while no more likely to use illegal drugs, were much more likely to get busted. Is the government racist when it blocks Blacks from going into a legit biz? Scott Ott leads Bill Whittle and Stephen Green to analyze the latest allegations of American racism.

Hopkins and McHugh have been targeted because they suggest actually doing something to solve the problem

"The cuck who won’t dump his cheating girlfriend, the heroin addict who tells himself he doesn’t have a problem, the obese woman who insists she is healthy while destroying herself—all can be figures of sympathy, but only to a point."

Katie Hopkins And Katie McHugh–Fired By Media For Telling Truth About Islam

James Kirkpatrick   June 6, 2017

On the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, it appears only a cynic could say France and the United Kingdom “won” World War II. As this is written, news comes of a self-described “soldier of the caliphate” attacking police in Paris, trapping thousands inside the Notre Dame Cathedral [This is for Syria,’ Man attacks police outside Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral, 2000 trapped, by Alix Culbertson, Express, June 6, 2017]. This comes only days after the London Bridge terrorist attack, which itself came only days after the recent attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. Terrorism is, as the new leader of France so memorably put it not long ago, almost literally part of the “daily lives” of Europeans now.
The response of those who rule the West and their Main Stream Media lackeys (it would be obscene to call them “elites”) is to deny a problem even exists and to attempt to destroy those who point it out.
There is now a distinct pattern of the Left claiming a scalp after each new terrorist attack. It remains to be seen who will be the victim after Paris, but two Katies were the casualties after the attacks in England; Katie Hopkins, formerly of the UK’s LBC broadcast channel 
and Katie McHugh, formerly of Breitbart.

Marxist Stephen Jay Gould was the Racist Liar, Not Charles Murray

Fabricator Margaret Mead and Friends
If anyone who reviews the "Bell Curve" ever read it, they would find a carefully measured, modestly concluded, carefully researched book, in which the conclusions are well documented and have not ever been statistically refuted.
On the other hand, in his misleading book "The Mismeasure of Man," Stephen Jay Gould, following in the tracks of Franz Boas and Margaret Mead, set out to prove his leftist, preconceived notions by falsifying the record and lying in has conclusions.  m/r

Phrenology is a valid science.
Well, almost.
In 1981, the paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould came to fame with the publication of The Mismeasure of Man, a chronicle of supposed racism in science, and a critique in particular of the idea that intelligence exists in a form that could be measured by anything so vulgar as an IQ score.
Gould took the work of a 19th century physical anthropologist named Samuel George Morton and made it ridiculous. In his telling, Morton was a fool and an unconscious racist — his project of measuring skull sizes of different ethnic groups conceived in racism and executed in same. Why, Morton clearly must have thought Caucasians had bigger brains than Africans, Indians, and Asians, and then subconsciously mismeasured the skulls to prove they were smarter.
The book then casts the entire project of measuring brain function — psychometrics — in the same light of primitivism.
Gould’s antiracist book was a hit with reviewers in the popular press, and many of its ideas about the morality and validity of testing intelligence became conventional wisdom, persisting today among the educated folks. If you’ve got some notion that IQ doesn’t measure anything but the ability to take IQ tests, that intelligence can’t be defined or may not be real at all, that multiple intelligences exist rather than a general intelligence, you can thank Gould. He’s not responsible for other arguments still rattling around our brains — about testing being culturally biased, or race being a social construct — but those ideas are just as defunct.
Then, in 2011, a funny thing happened. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania went and measured old Morton’s skulls, which turned out to be just the size he had recorded. Gould, according to one of the co-authors, was nothing but a “charlatan.”

DHS chief says he’s not deporting Dreamers, suggests Congress grant full legalization

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said Wednesday that his agents are not actively trying to deport illegal immigrant Dreamers, but pleaded with Congress to pass a bill granting them a more permanent legal status, saying only lawmakers can solve the problem.
Mr. Kelly declined to take a position on whether the 2012 amnesty President Obama created for Dreamers is legal, but said the program, known in government circles as DACA or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is still in effect.
He said “illegals” who have been properly approved for DACA will be safe from deportation, but said those who haven’t applied, and some who were approved despite having criminal records that should make them ineligible, will be deported.

Tattoos and Tramp Stamps Everywhere

You can't go anywhere today where some flesh is exposed and not see tattoos. They are the permanent fashion statement of the last few decades. Go to a beach or a gym and their is hardly a body, black, brown, yellow or white that isn't showing permanent India Ink.
For the decades before the 1980's, when tattoos started their rise in popularity, they were more or less taboo for the middle and upper classes in America.
That was why I got one. Then, in the 1960's, no one even considered getting a tattoo. They were for sailors and criminals. Tattoos were so out of fashion, that tattooists were few, far between and hard to find.
My friend and I had mad an informal pact to get one, but the only place we knew where a tattoo parlor was, anywhere near us that is, was in Long Beach, California, at the Pike.
There pike tried to be a West Coast version, in a small way, of Coney Island. It had popular Cyclone Racer roller coaster, various rides and amusements. It was near the Navy and at one time had several tattoo parlors. But by the mid-1960s, the Pike had developed a seedy reputation with low-brow dives, girly shows and clip joints. By then, it had just one tattoo parlor that was still opened. It was operated by Owen and Lee Roy. They both had what looked like nearly full body tattoos.
We must have asked the same annoying questions most people ask. Do they hurt? Where can't you tattoo a person. Have you ever tattooed a prick? 
The answer to the last question was yes, with an implication that he was about to tattoo two more.
It was a parlor out of the days before WWII. The stencils on the walls represented anti-Nazi and Japan, gruesome images of devils and sculls, overly sexy girls, cartoons, sentiments and patriotic stencils. The place had a strange smell and the smell stuck with you for days as as the tattoo festered and finally healed. Did I mention, getting the tattoo was quite painful. I guess some people are really into pain.
They were tough good old guys. They wouldn't give me a tattoo because I was drunk. I had to come back.
The morning after I did get my tattoo, I looked in the mirror. It wasn't me anymore. There was a permanent, psychological change in me. I almost felt as if my arm had been taken off. The sense that a permanent change had set in.
The friend, who got a tattoo with me, his father was a doctor. His father was not at all pleased.
"Do you have any idea of what you might catch from getting a tattoo? Blood poisoning, hepatitis, serious infectious reactions, there is even the possibility of catching leprosy!"
After all these years, I still have my tattoo. It is beginning to look more like an old bruise. It has lost its colors and sharp lines. 
It has been interesting to see the reactions to it over the years. For may years, I was the only person of my generation, in my circle of acquaintances who had gotten one. But that changed about fifteen to twenty years later. Now it seems half the people I see have them, men and women.
But I don't get it. I wouldn't get another one. They are painful as hell and now they are expensive. They are still potentially dangerous to your health and even your life.
There was another sad note remotely related to my tattoo. Several years after I got my tattoo, Owen, the tattoo artist, was robbed and murdered one night as he was walking home from his shop. m/r

This Man's Death Proves Why You Should Never Go Swimming With a New Tattoo​

​The shop gives you aftercare instructions for a reason



May 31, 2017

Five days after getting a new tattoo on his right calf, a 31-year-old man went for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico.
Two days later, he developed a fever and chills, and swelling began to spread over the tattoo site, as well as throughout both his legs.
He went to the emergency room one day later. His lesions began to change, developing central purple patches with black borders. Fluid-filled blisters called bullae began erupting over his lesions at an alarming rate, as doctors described in BMJ Case Reports.
Lab work also turned up high levels of liver enzymes, which suggested a history of chronic liver disease. (Here are 6 surprising signs your liver might be failing.)
