Compare and Contrast: FBI treatment of Trump versus Clinton

Real Clear InbvestigationsFormer Attorney General Loretta Lynch obtained evidence that a computer contractor working under the direction of Hillary Clinton’s legal team destroyed subpoenaed records that the former secretary of state stored on a private email server she originally kept at her New York home, and then lied to investigators about it. Yet no charges were brought against Clinton, her lawyers, or her paid consultant.

The leniency accorded to Clinton contrasts with recent moves by Attorney General Merrick Garland to aggressively investigate former President Trump and his lawyers for allegedly obstructing investigators’ efforts to locate subpoenaed records at his Florida home. Legal experts say the apparent double standard may provide a useful defense for Trump and his legal team.

Biden Admin conducting digital currency evaluations

Conservative TreehouseIf you combine government use of energy policy, government regulation on individuals around that energy policy, and the self-interested need to control political opposition, you discover one of the most effective ways to control human activity is to control their finance.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave us a great example of that when he weaponized the power of the Canadian government to target the protesting truckers and those who support them. You might remember Trudeau’s government locked down bank accounts, froze assets, denied loans, blocked mortgages and generally confiscated the wealth and incomes of his political opposition without any due process; all because the people were challenging his totalitarian COVID dictates. {Go Deep}

Take those reference points as an overlay and now consider this undiscussed recent announcement [on a digital currency for the US] from the Biden administration...

The thing tyrants always want is control. Control of financial transactions enables control of everything else.

Trump gets his Special Master to check on the FBI... for a day

UncoverDCThe judge agreed with President Trump; the situation is entirely novel, this has never happened before, the harm to the former President could be significant (especially if the DOJ is wrong), and the situation warranted a Special Master. She demanded that the parties provide her with a list of potential candidates. They did.
Then the judge talks about the fact that it is undisputed that the DOJ took personal items outside the scope of the search warrant and that there are documented reasons to doubt the government’s ability to filter all of those things out in a fair manner. She also goes after the DOJ for the terrible job it did with the property inventory and the problems that Trump has had trying to work these issues out before he filed suit in her court.

As threatened, DOJ has appealed, and won at the 11th Circuit level, with the appeals court expressing deference towards the DOJ assertion of national security interests in a manner that apparently cannot be reviewed by anyone else.

Grand Jury in Fulton County GA probe targeting political figures

Just The NewsThe Fulton County prosecutor investigating "attempts to influence" the 2020 presidential election in Georgia says some targets of the probe, if convicted of a related crime, will receive prison sentences.

"The allegations are very serious," Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is leading the probe, told The Washington Post on Tuesday. "If indicted and convicted, people are facing prison sentences."

Decisions on indictments are still months away, but at least 17 people have been told that they are targets of the criminal investigation. Willis said that more people will be added to that list.

Regarding Trump's testimony, Willis said, "A decision is going to have to be made, and I imagine it's going to be made late this fall."

Just in time to interfere in the 2022 elections.

Another liar wins a GOP primary

Just The NewsNew Hampshire GOP Senate candidate Don Bolduc on Thursday, a little more than a day after he won the state party nomination, changed his views on the 2020 presidential election, saying it was "not stolen."

Bolduc, a retired Army brigadier general who faces incumbent Democrat Sen. Maggie Hassan in November, made the comment on the Fox News Channel – in an apparent attempt to move from his pro-Trump primary campaign platform to one more acceptable to general election voters.

Not a surprise, but still a disappointment.

Charges filed against judge over election complaint

Gateway PunditElection integrity patriot and former Georgia Judicial Magistrate, Richard Jordan, is facing charges for questioning the June Election and attempting to submit a complaint.

Fast forward to 2022 and the former judge is now under investigation that could result in three misdemeanors and a felony, all for questioning Dominion voting machine’s compliance with the laws in Georgia.

Jordan wanted to file a complaint during the election because he was unable to read the QR code that showed the results of his votes in that election. He cannot read the QR code but Georgia law states that a ballot must be printable and legible by the elector.

If the election is so secure, why can't we question it?

PA advances election security legislation

Just The NewsA trio of bills are working their way through the Legislature to enhance the security of election ballots and remove deceased residents from the voter rolls.

The House State Government Committee met on Monday to vote on House Bill 34, House Bill 143, and House Bill 2484, advancing all three of them past first consideration. The bills will need to get through three considerations before a final vote can be held.

Seems like they need it, but their courts may stand in the way.

About that vote fraud that doesn't exist

NYPostA non-citizen green card-holder in Manhattan may have been illegally voting in city elections for the past 13 years — possibly one of “thousands” of similarly bogus voters, a city Board of Elections whistleblower told The Post.

Abdul Rahman Kargbo, 63, first registered to vote in November 2005. according to records from the New York City Board of Elections. He enrolled in the Democratic Party and voted in nine general and primary elections between 2008 and 2021, the records show.

A copy of Kargbo’s original voter registration form obtained by The Post shows he clearly and honestly marked that he was not a US citizen, yet the clueless agency registered him anyway.

This is just one case, but it shows how easy it is.

Jan 6th Committee lies again

Gateway PunditI know this including from how it was described by the U.S. Government when the recording was provided to the defense attorneys.

First, notice there is NO crowd noise on the recording. This is NOT a recording from the US Capitol. No one on this recording is at the US Capitol.

This is a recording of people all over the country watching the news on TV.

What they are describing is what they are seeing ON TV.

Not the first time they have done something like this. It's a sign of desperation, I think. They know they are going to have to cheat really, really hard, and they know people will be watching for that. But why do they fear just taking an election loss so much?

It would be nice if thew news media was doing their job and questioning the BS.

Political subpoenas are intended to chill political opposition

Legal InsurrectionAssume, for the sake of argument only, that such subpoenas were proper and necessary to investigate alleged crimes associated with the January 6, 2021, Capitol Hill riot. That’s a big assumption, but it proves the point, which is why now, some 18 months later?

If these subpoenas were so necessary to the investigation, why did DOJ/FBI wait a year and half until we are in the thick of the runup to the midterms?

These subpoenas are a big freeze not only on Trumpworld, but conservative and Republican worlds. When people know that dozens are being subpoenaed by the feds regarding hundreds of people or entities, people stop talking to each other and engaging in perfectly lawful political activity out of fear that they will be next. Lawful political communication with the wrong person could find you on the receiving end of a DOJ subpoena and FBI home visit, or as just happend to Mike Lindell and others, being confronted on the street or in public by FBI agents.

It’s a way to shut down a political movement without having to arrest, indict, or prosecute anyone.

Even if nothing else ever comes from these investigations, subpoenas, or seizures, the chilling effect on the midterm elections will have already done the harm.

SAF files suit against new New York carry law

Second Amendment FoundationThe Second Amendment Foundation today filed a federal lawsuit challenging a new gun control law adopted in New York State following the Supreme Court’s nullification of its previous concealed carry state that required “proper cause,” alleging the state’s new statute is just as unconstitutional as the previous law.

Joining SAF is the Firearms Policy Coalition, Inc., and two private citizens, Brett Christian and John Boron. Defendants are Kevin Bruen, superintendent of the New York State Police, and John J. Flynn, Erie County District Attorney, in their official capacities. The case is known as Boron v. Bruen. It was filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York.

According to SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, passage of Senate Bill S 51001 by state lawmakers in Albany “replaced one unconstitutional licensing scheme with another.”

The new measure bans the lawful, licensed carry of firearms in so-called “sensitive places,” and presumptively most property in the state, creating a de facto ban on firearms carry for personal protection. As a result, SAF and its partners are asking for Declaratory and Injunctive Relief from the court.

New York has also instituted rules for firearms licensing that require a check of social media history that clearly falls afoul of the 1st Amendment.

Facebook provides FBI with private messages proactively

Conservative Treehouse Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of American users and reporting them to the FBI if they express anti-government or anti-authority sentiments — or question the 2020 election — according to sources within the Department of Justice.

Under the FBI collaboration operation, somebody at Facebook red-flagged these supposedly subversive private messages over the past 19 months and transmitted them in redacted form to the domestic terrorism operational unit at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, without a subpoena.

“It was done outside the legal process and without probable cause,” alleged one of the sources, who spoke on condition of ­anonymity.

“Facebook provides the FBI with private conversations which are protected by the First Amendment without any subpoena.”

The answer to this is end-to-end encrypted communications, which somehow has never quite taken off.

Biden Admin pushing FBI to exaggerate "white supremacist" threats

Washington TimesRank-and-file FBI agents are accusing the Biden administration of exaggerating the threat of White supremacists and pressuring agents to cook up domestic terrorist cases involving racist extremists.

Current and former FBI agents told The Washington Times that the perceived White supremacist threat is overblown by the administration. They said top bureau officials are pressuring FBI agents to create domestic terrorist cases and tag people as White supremacists to meet internal metrics.

“The demand for White supremacy” coming from FBI headquarters “vastly outstrips the supply of White supremacy,” said one agent, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “We have more people assigned to investigate White supremacists than we can actually find.”

It seems pretty clear that the goal is to have something to use to paint Republicans as racists for the midterms.

Heller wins again

The Truth About GunsIn July, Heller filed another lawsuit, this one also styled Heller v. DC. This latest action challenged the city’s limit on the total number of rounds a concealed carry license holder can carry in the Capital when armed. The city, in its infinite wisdom, had set a totally arbitrary limit of 20 rounds for concealed carriers.

Given the current legal landscape, as Rob Romano reported last night, the city threw in the towel and used “emergency rulemaking” powers to repeal the 20-round limit.

I would rather have the precedent, but there are other states.

Danchenko a paid FBI informant

TechnofogToday, Special Counsel John Durham moved to unseal this motion in limine in the false statements case against Igor Danchenko.

This motion provides new information on the details of Danchenko’s lies to the FBI, further information on how Special Counsel Mueller ignored Danchenko’s false statements, expected testimony from Clinton-connected executive Charles Dolan, and one crazy development.

But we’ll start with the the most damning development: Danchenko was on the FBI payroll as a confidential human source (CHS) from March 2017 through October 2020.

Bear in mind, Mueller kept paying Danchenko (and investigating Trump) even after Trump was elected and Danchenko admitted what he claimed about Trump was bullshit and bar talk.

More video evidence of potential vote fraud

Gateway PunditThe two men are seen rolling a flatbed filled with 13 postal trays used to transfer ballots in Detroit, 3 large (heavy) storage containers, and a large filled blue bag with red straps (we believe this bag was used to transfer ballots from satellite voting centers, potentially to the Detroit City Clerk’s office), and two open boxes filled with absentee ballots into the back of a black minivan that is backed up next to the drop box. It should be mentioned that, according to a thorough examination of the surveillance tapes by MC4EI, a scant total of 95 ballots were deposited throughout the day on Election Day, and only ONE ballot was dropped off after 6 pm on Election Day—so, where is this massive haul of ballots coming from?

When they are finished loading the contents of the flatbed, which includes several large black containers that are so heavy it requires two people to load them into the back of the minivan, they close the doors, and ONE person drives away, ALONE—with a van filled with thousands of ballots almost 3.5 hours after the polls have closed.

It's certainly suspicious,

Clinton judge bars enforcement of election integrity law

Gateway PunditA Clinton-appointed federal Judge blocked a new Arizona election integrity law from being enforced in the upcoming 2022 General Election.

HB2247 is meant to clean the voter rolls and remove registrants who are registered in another state and no longer live in Arizona. The new law would add a statement on voter registration forms, specifying that if a registrant permanently moves to another state after registering in this state, their registration will be canceled.

It would also direct the county recorder to cancel a voter registration when they confirm that the registered person is dead, that the person is not an Arizona resident or resident of that County, or that they are not a citizen of the United States.

It's unclear what justification the judge used to block a law that would remove people who aren't allowed to vote from the list of voters. Presumably there will be appeals, but the judge is hoping those appeals don't take place until after the midterm election.

Compare and Contrast

Coffee County, GA, had issues with their ballot scanner in 2020. They brought in experts after the election to examine the machines and find out why.

Gateway PunditAt the end of the testing, both Logan and Lenberg wrote up reports on what they found, which were seemingly ignored by officials outside of of Coffee Co.

On the ICP machines, they were “reversing ballots” at a fairly high rate (about 15%) and the reversal was 4 to 1 Trump to Biden ballots.

On the high speed scanners, it was a little more shocking: Lenberg explains that the user interface allows you to change many different scanning parameters like gamma, contrast, sensitivity etc. Lenberg explained: “Well, that’s nuts on its surface. If you have a certified piece of equipment that is counting votes, you don’t want to let an administrator go in and adjust how its going to scan votes. You would never do that!” Yet, one could, even after certification.

Before they began playing with the parameters, Lenberg claims they could run ballots through perfectly with no issues. Thousands of ballots. But when they got to the tenth parameter, that all changed. This parameter allowed the user to “ignore red, blue, green or none”. It was defaulted to “ignore red”. There was no red on any of the ballots they were running. However, when they set that parameter to “none”, the machine would not run Trump ballots properly. They couldn’t run 20 Trump ballots before rejecting a ballot. It would run Biden ballots through no problem, though.

Start by reading the summary. If you have time, watch the podcast. It's a little over an hour, but you will get a first hand account of what actually happened from people who were involved. Then, read the way Associated Press frames the events.

Associated Press The prosecutor investigating whether former President Donald Trump and others illegally tried to interfere in the 2020 election in Georgia is seeking information about the alleged involvement of a Trump ally in the breach of voting equipment at a county roughly 200 miles south of her Atlanta office.

The widening of the probe highlights the latest instance in which unauthorized people appear to have gained access to voting equipment since the 2020 election, primarily in battleground states lost by Trump. Election experts have raised concerns that sensitive information shared online about the equipment may have exposed vulnerabilities that could be exploited by people intent on disrupting future elections.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is seeking to have attorney Sidney Powell, who tried persistently to overturn Trump’s loss, testify before a special grand jury seated for the investigation into possible illegal election interference.

So, an investigation into the integrity of voting machines in one county that found problems resulting in code changes from the manufacturer is apparently being called illegal election interference even though investigating and testing the machines after the election has been decided could not possibly interfere with legitimate results?

Why the coverup, AP? What is on those machines in GA you so so so desperately want to keep hidden?

Fauci: "Not enough time for human trials on COVID boosters"

Just The NewsDr. Anthony Fauci says there is not enough time to wait for clinical trials before the authorization of updated COVID-19 booster shots.

"We don't have time to do a clinical trial because we need to get the vaccine out now," Fauci said on CBC this week, per The Epoch Times.

They had time to do clinic trials on the initial COVID vaccines, and those trials appear to have been a horror show. The data is still trickling out, extracted by court order from the government agencies. Now, Fauci wants to rush out a booster without doing any human trials at all, when the COVID pandemic is effectively over?

No, Fauci, and the syringe you rode in on, too.

This is really about Fauci giving himself a nice retirement present of another batch of drug royalties.
