The Inspector General's Report Will Expose the MSM as Treasonous

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

So what will the mainstream media who participated so heavily in this, who were in effect the enabler of this disgraceful anti-democratic enterprise, do when the inspector general's report is finally published? These next few weeks are going to be among the most interesting in our lifetimes -- especially for our friends in the press. We know from the NYT earlier this week they are preparing their excuses. Let's hope they don't have enough.

Trump Demands DOJ 'Fess Up About Spying On His Campaign

President Trump has dropped a bomb on the Department of Justice by demanding answers about why Stefan Halper, a long-time CIA operative with extensive links to the Bush family who was responsible for a dirty and likely illegal spying operation in the 1980 presidential election was engaged to spy on his campaign.

Conservative Senators Must Oppose Gina Haspel For CIA Director

In her testimony yesterday, Gina Haspel gave conservatives a rare insight into how operatives of the Deep State think and work – and it should scare everyone who saw it or has read about it. What’s more, Haspel gave conservatives concerned about Russia, China and the war Islam has declared on the West absolutely no reason to vote for her.

The Trump Land Mine

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The government, the political apparat, the media, tech, and entertainment conglomerates sought to reduce Trump to some monstrous entity deserving of hanging, stabbing, decapitation, incineration, and shooting. It sought to indict, impeach, and remove a sitting president, as the ancien régime rushed to break federal law with assumed ethical exemption — tapping, surveilling, lying, and leaking with impunity, assured that supposedly morally superior ends justified any means necessary to achieve them. In other words, the custodians of the status quo arrogantly grabbed up the Trump land mine and thought they could easily toss it away — as it has blown them sky-high.

Worse than Beria? Mueller Could Damage the World

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

This is terrible for the entire world. It is also ultimately terrible for the FBI and Mueller because if half the country continues to believe the president is being railroaded and that justice is hugely biased (why wasn't Hillary investigated on anything remotely near the level of Trump?), the results will be catastrophic. That word sounds hyperbolic but it isn't. We could see anything from civil war to social atrophy. Who knows if our country will survive it?

If Only Hillary Had Won . . .

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In sum, Hillary’s supposedly sure victory, not fear of breaking the law, prompted most of the current 2016 scandals, and her embittering defeat means they are not being addressed as scandals. Had Clinton been elected, what now seems illegal would have been appreciated as bullet points on a résumé making the case for promotion. Such apparatchiks would have been reminded that Team Clinton players were always rewarded for past — and future — administrative-state service.

Rod Rosenstein’s Coup Against President Trump

A real constitutional crisis is in the making, and it has nothing to do with the fantasy that Trump colluded with the Russians. It is time for Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein to be fired and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s fishing expedition to end and constitutional order to be restored.

Will the Deep State Break Trump?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What is going on in this city is an American version of the "color revolutions" we have employed to dump over governments in places like Georgia and Ukraine. Goal: Break Trump's presidency, remove him, discredit his election as contaminated by Kremlin collusion, upend the democratic verdict of 2016, and ash-can Trump's agenda of populist conservatism. Then, return America to the open borders, free trade, democracy-crusading Bushite globalism beloved by our Beltway elites.

The Deep State is in Deep Trouble

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The inspector general's report is coming out soon, although some now say it may be delayed to as late as May. But that would only be because it is growing more extensive and thus more worrying to certain parties. If reports are true we are coming into one of the most fascinating moments ever in American history. Washington today is filled with nervous people -- and they should be.

The Deep State Media Game

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

The Deep State media game afoot here is to protect the Deep State buddies by slow-rolling out the news that affects them negatively — and if possible keeping that news from the public and Congress. But any news that can help sabotage the President? That is to be leaked ASAP. This kind of thing can and — it seems increasingly likely, will — make Watergate look like a piker.

A hero only to a lynch mob

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Donald Trump is no doubt guilty of many sins. We all are (some of us of more sins than others). His pursuers are guilty of many transgressions and trespasses, too. (The pursuers are lawyers, after all.) If the president would only shut up, or shut down his Twitter account (or both), the facts and a few dissenters from the lynch mob in the print and blabbing arts might lend a helping hand. He won’t, of course, because he can’t. The facts might win out, anyway. A fact is a pretty sturdy fellow, and when a few of them get together they can usually make a difference.

The Special Counsel Is Looking At The Wrong Administration

The point of counterintelligence and cybersecurity is not point fingers after the enemy has executed an intelligence operation – in this case an act of information warfare – it is to prevent it from happening. However, as far as we can tell, not only did Team Obama do nothing to stop the Russians, they helped them by undermining the peaceful transfer of power to President Trump.

Scandal, Corruption, Lawbreaking — And So What?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Attorney General Sessions must find muscular, ambitious, and combative prosecutors (preferably from outside Washington, D.C., and preferably existing federal attorneys), direct them to call a Grand Jury, and begin collating information from congressional investigations to get to the bottom of what is likely one of gravest scandals in post-war American history: the effort to use the federal government to thwart the candidacy of an unpopular presidential candidate and then to smear and ruin his early tenure as president.

Political Espionage, By the Book

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

To a group of radicals who rose to the top of the ruling class and grew accustomed to manipulating power effortlessly, perhaps it is normal. But what does that say about the lawlessness that launched many of their careers? They never lost it; they just brought it with them into the government. From their posts at the FBI, CIA, Justice Department, State Department, and the White House itself, they tried to tilt an election to one of Alinsky’s disciples. But they failed.

Our New Secessionists

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

The swamp that Trump promised to drain is deep, malodorous, and self-regenerating. His new civil service initiative promises to plunge a gigantic catheter into the spongy center of the swamp in order to sluice away some of the accumulated detritus that has gathered there in fetid profusion. The deep state has declared war on Donald Trump and a united America. Those of us hoping to make America great again should repay the favor and help the president wage war against the enemies of our excellence.

Nunes Duels the Deep State

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If Americans are losing confidence in the FBI, whose fault is that? Is there not evidence that a hubristic cadre at the apex of the FBI — Comey, McCabe, Strzok foremost among them — decided the Republic must be saved from Trump and, should Hillary fail, they would step in and move to abort the Trump presidency at birth? To the deep state, the higher interests of the American people almost always coincide with their own.

Case Against Bundys Dismissed: Obama’s FBI And DOJ Are The Real Criminals

Americans should start asking the larger questions raised by the gross misconduct of the Obama-era FBI and Justice Department that has been revealed in the Bundy trials and the killing of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum: When will those government officials responsible for all the lives destroyed be brought to justice? And, is the same kind of misconduct that was used to try to destroy the Bundys and their allies at work in the Hillary Clinton, Uranium One, Trump dossier and Russian collusion investigations?

10 times the intel community violated the trust of US citizens, lawmakers and allies

Sharyl Attkisson, The Hill

Think all this really doesn’t matter to you, as a private citizen? You never know. Reality hit home for me when multiple computer forensics reports confirmed extensive government surveillance of me while I reported for CBS News during the Obama administration. Rather than cooperate or expose the bad actors, today’s Department of Justice is opposing my lawsuit over those intrusions in Virginia federal court.

Latest Chapter In Bundy Saga Proves How Corrupt And Lawless Our Government Has Become

Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro declared a mistrial in the Nevada case against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his sons Ryan and Ammon Bundy and their associate Ryan Payne, but that's only the tip of the iceberg of government misconduct against the Bundys.

New FedUp PAC Poll: FBI Scandal Requires Special Prosecutor

More than 94% of those responding to the latest FedUp PAC poll agree that recent revelations showing that the FBI has a pro-Clinton, pro-Obama, and anti-Trump partisan bias require investigation and that “we cannot trust the FBI to investigate itself.”
