Now the IRS has a whistleblower

Claiming someone tried to interfere with an audit of Trump's taxes. But, guess what? The information is only second-hand, making it useless.

I'm going to completely disregard anything that isn't based on first-hand information, and frankly, the IRS is tainted thanks to the scandal under Obama, so I won't trust any "whistleblowers" from that source period.

What the ruling class seems to fail to understand is that we the people hate their guts and discount everything they tell us already. They no longer get any benefit of the doubt. Even if they find an actual scandal, I'm likely to wave my hand at the other side and say "I don't care; they are still worse."

This is a proper use of the EPA

Environmental Protection Agency issues violation notice to San Francisco. Since San Francisco has been repeatedly featured on the news as being covered in human feces, disease-ridden homeless camps, used needles, and god only know what else, this seems like common sense. I'm frankly amused by the news reporting, which tries to spin the sanitation necessary for civilization as political. And brings on environmental activists to protest that Trump shouldn't be protecting the environment.

Judicial Watch exposes Rosenstein's complicity

Judicial WatchJudicial Watch released 145 pages of Rod Rosenstein’s communications that include a one-line email from Rod Rosenstein to Robert Mueller stating, “The boss and his staff do not know about our discussions” and “off the record” emails with major media outlets around the date of Mueller’s appointment.

Leaking, lying to the President... why does he still have a job?

Perhaps he's cooperating.

Does no one know anything anymore?

PowerLineBelow is a clip depicting former bombardier Fred Derry (Dana Andrews) confronting his demons. Like Wyler, Fred flew B17s in the war. They didn’t have a word for PTSD at the time, but Fred was wrestling with something like it.

They called it "shell shock".

About that unbiased media...

The FederalistDuring “CNN Newsroom” with Brooke Baldwin today, former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe questioned why anyone would investigate the beginnings of the Russia probe. Perhaps it’s because the available evidence suggests he might have been involved.

Baldwin asked McCabe why Attorney General William Barr is meeting with foreign counterparts to find out more about the hoax that duped the U.S. government into spending two years and millions of dollars unsuccessfully searching for Russian collusion with the Trump campaign to steal the 2016 election.

CNN contributor McCabe questions the investigation into the actions of Acting FBI Director McCabe in SpyGate. Funny how that works.

About the IG report...

Instapundit Joe diGenova: I would say explosive and I would say, for people at the highest levels of the FBI and at the highest levels of the Justice Department–more important at the Justice Department–it’s going to be devastating. It’s going to ruin careers, it’s going to make people have bar problems...

I have only one complaint. "Bar problems" and "ruin[ed] careers" are not criminal indictments.

Justice Ginsbug hospitalized again

She was hospitalized for chills and fever, which seems ... unusually mild to be treated with a hospital stay.

Folks, she is barely hanging on. This is part of the reason the Democrats are so desperate. If Trump can replace her with a solid Justice, it will have a huge impact on the courts.

UPDATE: Check the comments for more (educated) speculation on the nature of her hospitalization.

They want to take your guns

Fox NewsWhile taking questions from the crowd, the Democratic lawmakers pushed for more gun control measures like Universal Background Checks, a ban on semi-automatic rifles, and implementing red flag laws to take guns away from people who may be a threat to themselves or the public.

"I want people to understand that we are not anti-gun, we are anti-gun violence," said Wittenberg. "And supporting the Second Amendment and being opposed to gun violence are not mutually exclusive."

Banning semiautomatic rifles is being anti-gun and blatantly violates the 2nd Amendment. Add in the other two proposals, and you're talking about violating practically the whole bill of rights.

Narrative Engineering

The New York Times tries to spin parts of the IG FISA report, but there are some holes in their narrative. Readers, do not believe the leaks, because they are 100% certain to be disinformation and spin. Wait for the report. It may be good, it may be bad, and maybe a wise reader can gain some insight into the contents by reading the leaks. But don't believe the leaks.


If Barr has any brains, and according to previous reporting, individuals are being shown only those portions of the report that they are personally involved in. That means this leak likely comes from a small group of people around the individual featured most prominently in it. I'd say canary trap, but the report will be released soon anyway.

Promising signs: Durham is traveling to Italy (where Mifsud resides) rather frequently. Trump says he's been told the report is historic.

I'm going to lay this prediction marker down, just in case. I think the Horowitz report on FISA abuse will include one or more criminal referrals for specific improper acts (such as altering an email) while taking the broader position that the FBI (largely, with individual exceptions) believed they were acting in good faith, while Durham prosecutes the CIA players who arranged the setup, and possibly those involved in the Mueller investigation/coverup.

Remember, Horowitz has limited scope, and he was tasked with FISA abuse only. The CIA activities, involving Mifsud, Burina, Halper, and so on, are mostly outside of that scope... but not outside of Durham's scope.

UPDATE: Meaning In History has a similar take. And he also reminds us that that charge against Clinesmith (for altering an email) means Clinesmith is going to get squeezed for info on the Corrupt Organization known as the "resistance". It might even be appropriate to think of Clinesmith as "the first domino".

I have a theory...

World Net DailyWarren: 'Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming and nonbinary people' are the 'backbone of our democracy'

... that politicians and gender studies majors don't actually speak english, or indeed any recognizable language at all. They make imitatory mouth-noises that resemble sentence fragments, but any attempt to interpret them as meaningful and coherent speech will inevitably fail. Instead, their chosen phrases act as a kind of social signaling system. Speakers use phrases that identify their in-group status and rank.

Is William Barr owned by the Deep State?

Breitbart Attorney General William Barr said he initially had his own suspicions about financier Jeffrey Epstein’s death while behind bars at one of the most secure jails in America but came to conclude that his suicide was the result of “a perfect storm of screw-ups.”

In an interview with The Associated Press, Barr said his concerns were prompted by the numerous irregularities at the Manhattan jail where Epstein was being held. But he said after the FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general continued to investigate, he realized there were a “series” of mistakes made that gave Epstein the chance to take his own life.

The camera failures were a screwup. The guards not checking on him overnight was a screwup; no, two screwups, one for each guard. The bedsheets not being suicide proof was a screwup. The prior "assisted suicide" attempt with his cellmate was a screwup. The autopsy mentioning the broken hynoid suggesting strangulation was a screwup. But most of all, whatever Barr did that got him on the Deep State blackmail list and forced him to claim that Epstein killed himself? That was a screwup.

On the other hand, I think releasing this article at 9pm on Friday the week before Thanksgiving was a cry for help, like blinking your eyes in morse code to spell out "Epstein didn't kill himself".

Epstein not-suicide watch

15 jail employees subpeona'd about their role in events because "a number of the witnesses were not cooperative." The federal prison workers union claims that was done because DOJ was "unwilling to grant immunity to workers". Of course DOJ is unwilling to grant immunity to workers; it's a criminal investigation into what seems very likely to be murder!

The cart is trying to lead the horse

The HillDeputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent and Acting Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor both accused President Trump of interfering with U.S. foreign policy in Ukraine. They indicated they differed with Trump’s skepticism of Ukraine’s newest leadership, and they disagreed with Trump’s apparent decision to keep Ukraine at a measured distance while he assessed the situation.

They further said that Trump gave approval for his attorney and adviser, Rudy Giuliani, to develop a communications channel on Ukraine diplomacy that was outside the “regular” diplomatic chain. Some in the media have dubbed that a “shadow campaign.”
Under the U.S. Constitution, it is the president of the United States who determines foreign policy. How can President Trump be “at odds with foreign policy” when he’s the one who determines it?

This is one reason among many that this impeachment farce is more of a Deep State coup than a legitimate impeachment. When your major reason for impeachment is a simple policy difference between the executive branch and the President, it should be obvious who wins.
