Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey with his sanctimonious smirk and carefully worded answers has no apparent plans to apologize to the twice-failed presidential candidate and perpetual sore loser Hillary Clinton for his famous public scolding in 2016 for her
“grossly negligent” “extremely careless” handling of classified information via an unapproved, unsecured private email server.
In the recently released report from Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Comey was busted in an astounding display of abject hypocrisy for using a personal email account for conducting sensitive government business which was “inconsistent with the DOJ Policy Statement.”
What was Hillary being investigated for? Oh yes, using a personal email to conduct business. Well, gee whiz, because according to the report, the IG identified numerous instances in which Comey himself used a personal email account (a Gmail account) to conduct FBI business. Almost as if he found nothing wrong in what Hillary was doing because he was doing it all, himself, along with the current President and it seems everyone else in Washington. National security? We don’t need no national security!
Meanwhile, Hillary in an epic example of her lack of self-awareness and utter narcissism took to social media to gloat.

Except Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-R) was not having it! In a smackdown of epic proportion, DeSantis tweeted – “But BleachBit.” A reminder to all of the extent of Hillary’s duplicity.

Yet Comey will not own up to his own part in this entire debacle, still making excuses.
“During an interview Tuesday at an event in Berlin, Germany promoting his memoir A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, Comey was pressed by moderator Holger Stark on the “irritating” detail about his emails from the IG report and Clinton’s indignant response. Was it time to “apologize” to Clinton, asked the moderator.
“No, and here’s why,” Comey replied sharply. “Again I don’t want to criticize her, but it shows me that even at this late date she doesn’t understand what the investigation in her case was about. It was not about her use of personal email system, and she didn’t get that during the investigation.”
He continued: “She used to say, ‘Well, Colin Powell when he was Secretary used AOL.’ That was not what it was about. It was about communicating about classified topics on that system, when those topics have to be done on a classified email.”
Comey then explained how he used his personal email differently and concluded by saying he gets why people have tried to connect the two, but underscored that they are totally different things.”
But THAT’S DIFFERENT?? That’s literally the story Comey is going with in his effort to minimize his own part in this giant coup attempt against the American people.
Coup you say? Isn’t that a little strong? Well, look at this little timeline that might connect the dots on this hot mess and tell me what YOU would call it –

Robert Mueller – Special Counsel For Russia Investigation: May 2017 – to present
Note the continued recurrence of the same folks, almost like it is some sort of big club and you are not in it!
Now from 2001 to 2005, there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation. A Grand Jury had been empaneled. Foreign governments from around the world had donated to the so-called “Charity” except from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.
None other than Comey himself took over the investigation in 2002. What a truly astounding coincidence! Lois Lerner, the same Lois Lerner that painted targets on the backs of every Conservative, right-wing, Tea Party group seeking tax exemption, was transferred to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS.
Then in an utterly starting twist of convenient coincidence, none other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein was running the Tax Division inside the Department of JUST-US from 2001 to 2005. Current Special Counsel Robert Mueller was Director of the FBI during this timeframe as well.
What do these four people have in common? Each and every one was briefed and/or investigators on the frontlines in the investigation into the Clinton Foundation…still just coincidence? Not convinced?
Fast forward to 2009. Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin. Hillary Clinton is now running the State Department under the Obama Administration, on her own personal email server by the way. The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of Hillary and like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest and all (cough…cough) she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to none other than…DUN DUN DA…THE RUSSIANS!
Naturally, the American people lost. It seems to be par for the course, but just a business deal, right? Nothing to see here…or was there?
Just prior to the sale being approved, Bill Clinton makes a little jaunt to Moscow and returns $500,000 richer all for the bargain of giving a 1-hour speech and blessing Vladimir Putin with his presence for a few hours. The FBI then placed an internal mole what in the midst of the money laundering and bribery festivities. Mueller is still the head of the FBI and was apparently so very dedicated to selling out his own country, he even personally delivered a Uranium sample to Moscow in 2009.
And guess who handled this case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland? Why it’s Rod Rosenstein yet again! It’s like Deja Vu!!
And I bet you will never guess just what happened to that FBI mole? Well in an effort to thank him for his service the DOJ placed a gag order on him, threatening to lock him up if he ever decided to have an attack of conscience and speak out about it.
It’s an interesting turn of events, an utter anomaly of statistics and probability right? I mean just how does 20% of the most strategic of US assets end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant tapped and ready to testify regarding insider information on the entire criminal enterprise?
Well, in yet another staggering twist of mere “coincidence” a mysterious $145 million donation was made to the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal….just out of the goodness of their hearts, I’m sure! Lois Lerner is still at the IRS heading up the Charitable Division.
Then in 2013, Comey becomes FBI Director, magically securing 17 separate no-bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department. Comey was rewarded with a $6 million thank you present when he left. Incredible “negotiation” on those no-bid contacts huh? *wink, wink*
Now Comey is the FBI Director “in charge” of the “Clinton Email Investigation” though naturally, he gets his good buddy Lois Learner off after the FBI “investigates” that little IRS matter. Nope…no crimes here…nothing to see…move along…
Now fast forward to 2015…Due to a series of “unfortunate” events in Benghazi and after the 9 different separate and distinct “investigations” conducted by the House, the Senate, and the State Department, Trey Gowdy ran a 10th investigation after being named as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi.
Gowdy discovers Hilary ran the entire State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, unsecured, personal email server. He also discovered through the course of his investigation (the 10th one mind you) that none, zero, zippo, nada, zilch was turned over of those emails when she departed from her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law. Additionally, Gowdy also discovered Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.
Then there was the cover-up from the John Kerry led State Department….delay, delay, lie, lie, lie, delay some more…and everything humanly possible was done to cover-up for Hillary and her criminal endeavors, likely because as the IG Report recently revealed Comey was an active participant himself, as was former President Obama.
In April 2016 Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, all while the DOJ hands out immunity deals like candy. No convening if a Grand Jury…nothing. Hillary exonerated on 7/8/2016 by Coney himself with a little help from his “friends” in a move the IG referred to as “insubordinate” and in “defiance of authority.”
Rosenstein then becomes the Assistant Attorney General, and Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein. Comey then leaks government information to the press and their good buddy Mueller is assigned to the investigation into the whole Russia debacle.
But Comey did not do a blessed thing wrong! His situation was DIFFERENT! And the malfeasance in Washington continues! Pick a crime, any crime! FISA abuse, political espionage….you name it! All the same players, same bat time, same bat channel, same corruption, hopelessly compromised, conflicted without a shred of integrity in sight!
And you know magically not once in its 20 + years of operation has the Clinton Foundation ever been audited by the IRS? Zero, none, nada, zilch!
However, the tables have turned. Comey himself is now under investigation by the IG’s office and it seems he wants to talk. One only wonders how much more will be revealed about the ongoing crime spree in Washington.
Immigrants Living On Taxpayer Dime Got Rude Awakening Thanks To Trump’s ‘New Rule’
Immigrants just got a harsh wake-up call from President Trump!
A new rule is being cooked up by the Trump administration that will send a rude awakening to immigrants living on the taxpayer dime. Trump’s new rule brings up the “public charge” in what the New York Times stated was a law that was about 100-years-old but was reworked in 1999. President Donald Trump’s new rule, which is in the works, not in action, could affect up to 1 million people in New York alone.
It has to do with immigrants using resources for welfare benefits and being listed in the realm of being a “burden” on the funds.
The New York Times stated: “But a new rule in the works from the Trump administration would make it difficult, if not impossible, for immigrants who use those benefits to obtain green cards.
New York City officials estimated that at least a million people here could be hurt by this plan, warning that the children of immigrants seeking green cards would be most vulnerable.
That’s because if applicants use any welfare benefits, even for children who are United States citizens, that could indicate they would be a burden on government resources. “What feels deeply concerning,” said Bitta Mostofi, New York City’s commissioner of immigrant affairs, “is the impact on the welfare of children, period.”
The spin they put on it makes it seem like this will leave families without food and that President Trump is going after immigrant children. What it should really be looked at is a rule that helps people become more motivated to get jobs and provide food for their families on their own, not live on the government dole while other people work 60 hours a week just to have funds for the welfare of others taken out of their check via taxes.
There are two ways to look at their new possible rules. The liberals will say it’s an attack on children and immigrants. The people with more common sense will say it’s about time that people started working for themselves. That brings up the classic debate that many of the working class are tired of hearing about – taxes and welfare. People who work for a living don’t like seeing their money given to people who refuse to work for a living.
Being on welfare because you have to is one thing. Some people are unable to work and need help. That’s different and most Americans are happy to help in that scenario. When people are on tough times, then sometimes they need a little bit of help, and that’s acceptable and nothing to be ashamed of. However, there are people who milk the system and refuse to work and that needs to be stopped at all costs. Being on welfare because you purposely choose not to work is a bad thing and any president that we have should be inclined to get people off the couch and back to being productive.
Just for reference, the public charge fact sheet states:
“Public charge has been part of U.S. immigration law for more than 100 years as a ground of inadmissibility and deportation. An individual who is likely at any time to become a public charge is inadmissible to the United States and ineligible to become a legal permanent resident. However, receiving public benefits does not automatically make an individual a public charge. This fact sheet provides information about public charge determinations to help noncitizens make informed choices about whether to apply for certain public benefits.
“Under Section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), an individual seeking admission to the United States or seeking to adjust status to permanent resident (obtaining a green card) is inadmissible if the individual “at the time of application for admission or adjustment of status, is likely at any time to become a public charge.” If an individual is inadmissible, admission to the United States or adjustment of status will not be granted.
“Immigration and welfare laws have generated some concern about whether a noncitizen may face adverse immigration consequences for having received federal, state, or local public benefits. Some noncitizens and their families are eligible for public benefits – including disaster relief, treatment of communicable diseases, immunizations, and children’s nutrition and health care programs – without being found to be a public charge.
“Definition of Public Charge
“In determining inadmissibility, USCIS defines “public charge” as an individual who is likely to become “primarily dependent on the government for subsistence, as demonstrated by either the receipt of public cash assistance for income maintenance, or institutionalization for long-term care at government expense.” See “Field Guidance on Deportability and Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds,” 64 FR 28689 (May 26, 1999). In determining whether an alien meets this definition for public charge inadmissibility, a number of factors are considered, including age, health, family status, assets, resources, financial status, education, and skills. No single factor, other than the lack of an affidavit of support, if required, will determine whether an individual is a public charge.
“Benefits Subject to Public Charge Consideration
“USCIS guidance specifies that cash assistance for income maintenance includes Supplemental Security Income (SSI), cash assistance from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program and state or local cash assistance programs for income maintenance, often called “general assistance” programs. Acceptance of these forms of public cash assistance could make a noncitizen inadmissible as a public charge if all other criteria are met. However, the mere receipt of these benefits does not automatically make an individual inadmissible, ineligible to adjust status to lawful permanent resident, or deportable on public charge grounds. See “Field Guidance on Deportability and Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds,” 64 FR 28689 (May 26, 1999). Each determination is made on a case-by-case basis in the context of the totality of the circumstances.
“In addition, public assistance, including Medicaid, that is used to support aliens who reside in an institution for long-term care – such as a nursing home or mental health institution – may also be considered as an adverse factor in the totality of the circumstances for purposes of public charge determinations. Short-term institutionalization for rehabilitation is not subject to public charge consideration.
“Benefits Not Subject to Public Charge Consideration
“Under the agency guidance, non-cash benefits and special-purpose cash benefits that are not intended for income maintenance are not subject to public charge consideration. Such benefits include:
- Medicaid and other health insurance and health services (including public assistance for immunizations and for testing and treatment of symptoms of communicable diseases, use of health clinics, short-term rehabilitation services, prenatal care and emergency medical services) other than support for long-term institutional care
- Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
- Nutrition programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)- commonly referred to as Food Stamps, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program, and other supplementary and emergency food assistance programs
- Housing benefits
- Child care services
- Energy assistance, such as the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
- Emergency disaster relief
- Foster care and adoption assistance
- Educational assistance (such as attending public school), including benefits under the Head Start Act and aid for elementary, secondary or higher education
- Job training programs
- In-kind, community-based programs, services or assistance (such as soup kitchens, crisis counseling and intervention, and short-term shelter)
- Non-cash benefits under TANF such as subsidized child care or transit subsidies
- Cash payments that have been earned, such as Title II Social Security benefits, government pensions, and veterans’ benefits, and other forms of earned benefits
- Unemployment compensation
“Some of the above programs may provide cash benefits, such as energy assistance, transportation or child care benefits provided under TANF or the Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG), and one-time emergency payments under TANF. Since the purpose of such benefits is not for income maintenance, but rather to avoid the need for ongoing cash assistance for income maintenance, they are not subject to public charge consideration.
“Note: In general, lawful permanent residents who currently possess a “green card” cannot be denied U.S. citizenship for lawfully receiving any public benefits for which they are eligible.”
Colorado Christian Cake Shop Owner Exonerated By Supreme Court Just Got Really Bad News
This is outrageous!
Here we go again. I’m sure you are familiar with the Colorado Christian cake shop owner who just won a huge case in front of the Supreme Court this last June. Jack Phillips is the Christian baker who made history by prevailing in front of the High Court after he refused to create a custom wedding cake for a gay couple on the basis of religious beliefs. Most of America celebrated with Phillips when he won the case and it provided a glimmer of hope for religious freedom once again here in the United States.
At the time of Phillips case, the Supreme Court admonished the state’s attorney who was standing against the baker for religious intolerance. He allegedly made a number of comments that gave the court pause on First Amendment grounds. The Supreme Court issued a powerful rebuke to the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for its “religious hostility” toward Christian baker Jack Phillips. They were right to think that and it has been proven even more to be true this week as this baker just got really bad news. Phillips just filed a lawsuit in federal court late Tuesday against the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. From what I am seeing he is being set up to be taken down in a different legalistic move… this time it involves gender issues.
Phillips and his attorneys from the Alliance Defending Freedom contend that the Commission has revived its campaign against him following June’s High Court decision, singling Masterpiece Cakeshop out for disparate treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs. It’s like deja vu all over again.
“The state of Colorado is ignoring the message of the U.S. Supreme Court by continuing to single out Jack for punishment and to exhibit hostility toward his religious beliefs,” said Kristen Waggoner, who is an Alliance Defending Freedom attorney that represents Phillips. “Even though Jack serves all customers and simply declines to create custom cakes that express messages or celebrate events in violation of his deeply held beliefs, the government is intent on destroying him — something the Supreme Court has already told it not to do.”
The person allegedly behind all of this is an attorney named Autumn Scardina. She reportedly called Phillips’ shop the day the decision in his favor was rendered and asked him to make a cake celebrating a gender transition. The caller asked that the cake be blue on the outside and pink on the inside. Over several months after that, Phillips received requests for cakes featuring marijuana use, s******y explicit messages, and Satanic symbols. He’s convinced that Scardina was the one who made all of the requests to set him up for legal action.
From PJ Media:
“To forestall a second round of litigation, ADF filed suit against the commission in federal court. Jeremy Tedesco, ADF’s senior counsel and vice president of U.S. Advocacy and Administration, told PJ Media his firm would “preemptively file a lawsuit in federal court to try to stop what the commission is doing.”
“‘We think the circumstances are uniquely aligned to do that,” Tedesco explained.
“Especially since the Supreme Court ruled that the commission had treated Phillips unfairly on the basis of his religion, thus violating his right to free exercise, this follow-up round seems particularly noxious. “It seems like another round of targeting him and putting him through this very difficult process simply because he wants to be faithful in his business in what he creates through his art,” Tedesco said.
“The commission could have decided not to pursue this second case against Phillips. The ADF lawyer explained that, when a Colorado citizen thinks he or she has been discriminated against, they file a complaint with the Civil Rights Division, which then conducts an investigation and determines probable cause.
“When Autumn Scardina filed this complaint, Tedesco would have expected the civil rights commission to reject it. “After Masterpiece came down from the Supreme Court, we expected Colorado to take that into account and realize that it was a bad decision to keep targeting Jack for his religious convictions,” the lawyer explained. “Instead, they found probable cause.”
“‘He’s going to be fully investigated again, there will be hearings from an administrative law judge,” Tedesco said. “It’s restarting the entire scenario.”
“‘It’s appalling,” the lawyer declared. “It’s unconscionable that they would go after him again right on the heels of losing a case because they were openly hostile to his religious beliefs.'”
Scardina has now filed a complaint with the civil rights commission. She is alleging discrimination on the basis of gender identity. The complaint was held aside while the Supreme Court ruled in Phillips’ other case. Just three weeks after Phillips won his case, the commission issued a probable cause determination, finding there was sufficient evidence to support Scardina’s claim of discrimination. This sure looks as though it was all planned out this way. “Colorado has renewed its war against him by embarking on another attempt to prosecute him, in direct conflict with the Supreme Court’s ruling in his favor,” Phillips’ lawsuit states. “This lawsuit is necessary to stop Colorado’s continuing persecution of Phillips.”
The freedom of religion is sacrosanct in this nation as a First Amendment right. Weaponizing lawfare to take it apart is not only unconstitutional but unconscionable. I sincerely hope that Phillips prevails once more and that a more solid ruling by the Supreme Court puts an end to this form of religious bigotry.
