Obama administration collusion with Russia might constitute the greatest scandal in the history of the republic.

Via Billy

“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” —Barack Obama’s open mic assurance to former Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, March 26, 2012

Progressive ideology is about winning — by any means necessary. Thus, the same Russians Barack Obama’s administration accommodated for years — from Hillary Clinton’s “reset button” and Obama’s cancellation of missile defense systems for Poland and the Czech Republic, to allowing the Kremlin to become a Middle East powerbroker, and Obama mocking Mitt Romney’s correct 2012 assertion that Russia was our foremost geopolitical foe — quickly became the mortal enemies that orchestrated Trump’s election victory. In short, they told us, “collusion” between Trump administration figures and Russia was the primary reason Hillary lost. Yet as we are only beginning to learn, Obama administration collusion with Russia might constitute the greatest scandal in the history of the republic.

Andrew McCarthy sums it up.

Obama's DOJ Discriminated Against Conservative Groups & Smoking Gun Found

Via Billy

I'll wager that Doofus has never had a bat in his hand.

Obama directed billions of financial settlement funds to leftist organizations while blocking conservatives.

Following the 2008 financial crisis, several of the nation’s largest financial institutions made legal settlements with the Obama administration. Public records show that these settlement payouts totaled over $3 billion. The House Judiciary Committee, along with the House Financial Services Committee, as part of an investigation has obtained internal documents from the Justice Department showing that not only did the Obama administration steer settlement payments toward leftist groups, Obama hacks also sought to prevent any conservative groups from receiving any of the settlement funds.

This is eerily reminiscent of the IRS’s targeting of Tea Party groups that came to light in 2013.

‘No Excuse’: Sessions Makes Major Announcement on IRS Tea Party Scandal

 ‘No Excuse’: Sessions Makes Major Announcement on IRS Tea Party Scandal

It's common knowledge that President Obama's IRS unfairly targeted tea party groups. The scandal began in 2010, but did not surface until 2013. Since that time, we've learned how the agency delayed the tax-exempt statuses of dozens of conservative organizations. For about two years, the agency worked off of a "Be On the Look Out" list for conservative labels, subjecting those groups to extra scrutiny.

It's a new era and now the Justice Department, under the purview of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is beginning to make amends. The department announced Thursday that it has reached two settlements with right-leaning groups that were targeted. In his announcement, Sessions gave a brief history of the last administration's inappropriate behavior, before pledging it won't happen under his watch.

National Assessment 2017

National assessment: It is now clear that the President of the United States, a former Secretary of State, the Director of National Intelligence, the Director of the FBI, the former Director of the FBI, a former US Attorney, and two Attorney Generals were all somehow involved in attempting to simultaneously cover up the details of a uranium sale backed with payoffs, intimidation, coercion and blackmail to America's enemy and fabricate information to influence a United States presidential election and use that fabricated information as justification to spy on the political opponent of the former Secretary of State while about half of this group was also shielding and distracting the fact that while serving as Secretary of State, the presidential candidate had basically set up a drop box on a personal server in someone's closet for foreign governments to rob of its classified information, for which, it is assumed that these foreign governments would donate money to the family foundation of the former Secretary of State and presidential candidate. All without a single mention in the left-leaning national newspapers or national television news programs.

Bump Stock Ban Fails in Deep-Blue Illinois

 bump stock

A bill to ban bump stocks in Illinois was voted down Thursday after lawmakers viewed the ban as overreaching and an endangerment to law-abiding gun owners.

State Rep. Marty Moylan (D-Des Plaines) put forth the ban in response to the October 1 Las Vegas attack.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Moylan introduced his legislation by saying, “Today, we are taking the first step towards better protecting our loved ones and preventing this horrific violence from happening in Illinois.”

John McCain Won’t Say Whether He Knew He Was Handing Clinton-Funded Russia Dossier to FBI

Sen. John McCain may find himself facing serious questions following the disclosure that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research utilized in the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump.

In December, it was McCain who notoriously passed the controversial dossier documents produced by the Washington opposition research firm Fusion GPS to then FBI Director James Comey, whose agency reportedly utilized the dossier as some of the basis for its probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

McCain’s office did not immediately respond to Breitbart News phone and email requests for comment about whether the Arizona senator was aware that the research he passed to the FBI was paid for by the DNC and Clinton’s campaign.

McCain’s office also did not immediately respond to a request for information on how he first obtained the dossier.

WSJ Editorial Board Calls on Robert Mueller to Resign from Russia Probe

 Robert Mueller

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board called Thursday for FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller to step down from his role in investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, saying that he lacks the “critical distance” to analyze recent revelations about the FBI’s role in the saga.

“It is no slur against Mr. Mueller’s integrity to say that he lacks the critical distance to conduct a credible probe of the bureau he ran for a dozen years,” the Journal’s editorial board wrote. “He could best serve the country by resigning to prevent further political turmoil over that conflict of interest.”

The board was writing in response to recent reports that suggest the FBI uncovered evidence of the Russian bribery and money laundering in the U.S. ahead of a 2010 decision by the Obama administration to greenlight the partial sale of the Canadian firm Uranium One to Russian energy giant Rosatom. The deal transferred control of 20 percent of U.S. uranium stocks to the Russians.

Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer broke the Uranium One scandal in his book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. He reported that Clinton’s State Department, along with other federal agencies, approved the transfer of 20 percent of all U.S. uranium to Russia and that nine foreign investors in the deal gave $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.

In Hill interviews, top Dems denied knowledge of payments to firm behind Trump dossier

Via Billy

Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz both privately denied to congressional Russia investigators that they had any knowledge about an arrangement to pay for opposition research on President Donald Trump, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

The interviews happened before this week's disclosure that the Clinton campaign and DNC paid for the research. Senate investigators may seek to further question the two top Democrats and dig deeper on the origins of the so-called Trump dossier, one of the sources briefed on the matter said.

Hillary–The Consummate Cultural Marxist

Via Billy

One of the hallmarks of the cultural Marxist mentality is that they continually point the accusatory finger at others and vilify them for doing the exact same things the cultural Marxists do. While this might seem contradictory to some who fail to grasp the cultural Marxist mindset, it really isn’t. You see, the cultural Marxist feels that it is perfectly okay for him, or her, to lie, cheat, steal and do all manner of things normal people would consider wrong because the cultural Marxist is doing all the wrong things for the right reasons. Hence, for them, there is no wrong in doing these misdeeds. Such reprehensible activity is only wrong when the rest of us do it. However, for the cultural Marxist to do such things to further his agenda is perfectly permissible. Doesn’t this explain Hillary and her husband, Bill, to a tee?

School Has XXX Party with Sex Toy Party Favors — for Kids as Young as 11

Last Wednesday, a dance teacher at a PreK-12 charter school in South Florida hosted a sex-themed birthday party — complete with all kinds of sex toys — for a male student. She has since been fired, although parents reported their kids were traumatized.

The party celebrated a young man's birthday. When he entered the room, the teacher gave him a hat with a penis on top, complete with a string that made the male organ erect when pulled.

The party — at Mater Lakes Academy in Hialeah, Fla. — included various sex toys: rubber penises, penis candles, penis hats, and more.

Trump Picks Replacement For Embattled IRS Chief John Koskinen

President Trump made it official on Thursday that embattled IRS Commissioner John Koskinen will be out of a job next month.

Trump tapped David Kautter, the Treasury Department’s assistant secretary for tax policy, to serve as interim IRS commissioner, beginning Nov. 13.

Koskinen’s term ends on Nov. 12. He was eligible for reappointment, but Koskinen is fiercely opposed by congressional Republicans. Members of the House Freedom Caucus attempted but failed to impeach Koskinen last year, largely over his handling of the scandal involving former IRS official Lois Lerner.

DNC chair gets Constitution wrong in speech to law students

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez incorrectly stated "the Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution" during a Tuesday night speech.

"The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution," Perez said during a lecture at Indiana University Law School. "It doesn’t have to be there."

The Electoral College, a mechanism for indirect election of the president created by the Founding Fathers as a compromise between smaller states and larger states, is clearly laid out in Article II of the Constitution: "Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress."

Social Justice “Fair Wage” Pizza Shop Forced to Close Over Evil “Profit”

 Roxbury’s Dudley Dough, a pizza parlor associated with the nonprofit Haley House, is shutting its doors.
 Gee, I am just blindsided..........:)

We can run the experiment a million times, and liberals will still refuse to accept that economic laws are every bit as real as the law of gravity until they’re personally mugged by reality … and even that’s no guarantee they’ll wake up.

The Boston Globe reports that Dudley Dough, a pizzeria in Roxbury, Massachusetts, will be closing its doors at the end of the year, not too long after its launch in 2015.

It seems that no matter how warm and fuzzy the parlor’s stated mission as a “fair wage” business made the socially-conscious lefties in the community feel, it was no substitute for the simple fact that an “economic justice” business plan isn’t enough to break even.

Mark Steyn: ‘Everyone Is Colluding With Russia, Except Trump’

Comment on: "Establishment Republicans Fall Like Dominoes: Luther Strange, Bob Corker, Jeff Flake Gone"

Comment by Badger on Establishment Republicans Fall Like Dominoes: Luth...

"The “Establishment” does not understand what President Trump, has tapped into. They fail to acknowledge, or even see, what 40+ years of ignoring the will of the voters has done. In the last 40 years the only difference between the republicans and democrats, has been the “R” or “D” behind their name.

Both political parties have been taken over by elitist, and are corporate pawns. Neither party works for their voters or states. Corporate interests wholly own them. If you have a few years under your soles, you have watched as they fundamentally transformed America.

Through the influence of their corporate owners. Laws and regulations have been enacted to give every advantage to giant corporate monopolies. While at the same time crush small and independent businesses with mountains of regulations. We have watched independent businesses on main streets across America close. They cannot compete with giant corporations.

And we, yes, we are also responsible. We have become a nation that only cares about how “cheap” something is. Quality, durability, or permanency are not even a consideration for a purchase, only what is the cheapest price. Gone are the local stores that cared for YOU, as a customer. Now you go to a giant box store that couldn’t care less if you every buy from them again. But the sad truth is, they do not have to care. Because YOU, only looked for the cheapest price. You, have made it impossible to buy from anyone, but them. They do not have to care if you want to buy from them again. Because you have no choice, but to buy from them, all their competition is closed.

There was a time, when honest government was there to keep monopolies, from dominating. There were laws that protected the small and independent businesses. However, as politicians of both parties became stooges for only the elite interests, these laws were abolished. There was a time when a giant corporation, couldn’t sell a product cheaper to you, the consumer. Than your local appliance store could buy it wholesale from the manufacturer. These were called, “fair trade” laws.

These laws stopped giant retailers, like Sears, from directly underselling your local store. Pick a brand, how about Maytag. There were laws that dictated how cheaply, Sears, could sell a Maytag appliance. This stopped Sears, from using its immense buying power to undercut local businesses. Did you ever wonder why for decades, Sears sold only Kenmore appliances, and not brand names? It was done because they were regulated on how cheap they could sell a national brand like Maytag, but their house brand could be priced where they wanted. Government at one time kept an honest and level playing field between local business and giant corporations.

Again, I swerved off topic. Americans, of all colors, see corporations and foreign interests, placed ahead of theirs. There is a groundswell of “I’ve had it up to here,” feeling all across the country. The establishment have lived too long disconnected from the voters. They live in these tiny spheres, of friends and colleagues. I think they are a parallel, of the French Aristocracy, before the revolution. They do not comprehend the anger seething for what they are doing and have done. I doubt they will understand, even as the guillotine blade falls."

The Clinton Foundation Megascam – Uranium One Deal

The Biggest Money-Laundering Organization in the World

 In the final debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Clinton answered a question on the Clinton Foundation with a well-polished spiel and Big Fat Lie on the Foundation’s wonderful works of charity, which included more nutritious school lunches for children, fighting AIDS in Africa, disaster relief, more opportunities for women and girls, protecting the world from climate change, etc. etc. The works themselves are not necessarily lies, but whether they accomplished any net good is open to question, especially their terrible scam on earth-quake relief for the people of Haiti.  The Biggest Lie was that she claimed that 80 to 90 percent of all Clinton Foundation revenues went to charities.  In fact, the Clinton Foundation IRS form 990 filed for 2013 showed that of $148.9 million in revenues (line 12), only $8.9 million went to grants for charity (line 13). That is a mere 5.95 percent.
