Hillary Clinton Delivers The Saddest Picture You’ll See This Year

This isn’t sad and pathetic at all.

Apparently still unable to get over the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton showed up at an art exhibit in Venice, Italy. There she sat behind a fake Resolute Desk (that’s the one in the Oval Office) and read copies of her emails for an hour. Seems like a good use of time.

With charisma like that, I have no idea how she didn’t beat Donald Trump.

After the picture started circulating, the internet wasn’t kind.

I wonder if the artist who did this also put out a mock illegal server for her to wipe with a cloth? We know there were tens of thousands of other emails she didn’t turn over to government authorities. Luckily, James Comey was there to make it all go away with some of the most unusual, corrupt actions taken in an investigation in recent memory. It’s part of the never-ending delusion of the left that they continue think the email scandal wasn’t a big deal.

Sometimes it’s hard to imagine that this woman came so close to being President. There’s certainly a bit of poetic justice in the fact that she didn’t.

News Breaks that Andrew McCabe Will Be Charged By the DOJ and the Flop Sweat Builds

Westlake Legal Group mccabe-crawling News Breaks that Andrew McCabe Will Be Charged By the DOJ and the Flop Sweat Builds prosecution Politics lying leaking Lacked Candor Justice james comey Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story FBI donald trump doj democrats CNN charged bill barr Andrew McCabe

Color me surprised. It looks like the DOJ has finally decided to hold someone accountable for what went on during the Hillary-Trump investigative fiasco.

Former FBI Assistant Director and current CNN talking head, Andrew McCabe, failed to convince the DOJ not to move forward with prosecution against him after a last ditch effort to change their minds. This report is coming via Fox News. The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross, who’s been killer on this beat, also confirms this story is accurate.

U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official.

McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but he rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation.

A source close to McCabe’s legal team said they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, “The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.”

This comes in response to the Inspector General finding that McCabe had lacked candor (i.e. lied) to the FBI multiple times involving leaks to the press.

There’s also the factor of McCabe suing the FBI last month that plays into this. Perhaps McCabe’s arrogance wrote a check his butt can’t cash? Trying to sue when he was clearly fired for just cause likely only emboldened the U.S. Attorney to press forward with prosecution.

We can’t mention McCabe without talking about CNN either. Despite the IG report and all the facts known about McCabe, CNN hired him on as an “analyst” last month in a widely mocked move. Is there any wonder that network is cratering in the ratings and has lost all credibly?

Drink the schadenfreude in.

This is the beginnings of what justice looks like. After every single Trump lackey who looked at an FBI agent the wrong way was charged during the Mueller saga, it would have been untenable for the DOJ to then look the other way at their own committing the same crime.

While this certainly won’t gain back the trust these institutions have lost, it’s a start in the process. Bill Barr is doing things the right way and if the indicators we are seeing tell the story, he’s not done yet. More prosecutions are coming.

There’s going to be a lot of new flop sweat building among people who thought they were in the clear.

Hillary Clinton …performance artist?

Westlake Legal Group hillary-resolute Hillary Clinton …performance artist? The Blog performance art Hillary Clinton email scandal

Someone’s really going to need to explain what Hillary Clinton thought she was accomplishing with this photo op. The woman who lost her eminently winnable 2016 presidential election traveled all the way to Venice, Italy to sit behind a replica of the Oval Office desk for an hour … and leaf through printouts of e-mails from the secret server that almost resulted in her prosecution.

It’s moves like this that are making political satire obsolete (via Twitchy):

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spent nearly an hour leafing through some of her emails on display at an art exhibit in Italy.

In photos surfacing online, the former Democratic presidential nominee could be seen looking through stacks of some of her past emails, which came under scrutiny during the presidential campaign in 2016.

More than 60,000 pages of emails were printed out and assembled in large stacks on a mock presidential resolute desk for the exhibit, which was held at the Venetian Teatro Italia in Venice. The exhibit, titled “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails,” was created by artist Kenneth Goldsmith.

Francesco Urbano Ragazzi, who curated the show, said in a statement that Clinton visited the former movie theater for the exhibit Tuesday. Urbano Ragazzi said that Clinton sat down the exact replica of the resolute desk in the Oval Office, where she spent roughly an hour looking through her emails.

Well … the e-mails she and her legal team didn’t delete, that is. Let’s not forget that the FBI and the State Department only got about half of the e-mails that went through the server, thanks to Clinton’s own “curation.” Clinton apparently wanted to amplify the artist’s message that the e-mails were “boring,” as she reportedly put it, but her culling of the e-mails made sure of that.

Presumably, the printouts didn’t contain the e-mails with classified information that the FBI found, too. That might have made them a little less “boring.”

However, the photo op itself is finger-kiss perfect … if Clinton and her team want to remind everyone just how obsessed she is with the Oval Office. She traveled halfway around the world to sit behind a replica of the Resolute Desk and read her own e-mails, or some of them, anyway. Then she sat for pictures behind the desk, mimicking a presidential pose, knowing they would go global. Look what you’re missing is what the effort screams out, when what it really reveals is Hillary’s self-absorption.

The Daily Wire asks an easily answered question:

Denial, my friends, denial. And maybe bargaining, because at this point it’s tough to believe that Hillary Clinton won’t give one more try at running for president — not if she travels halfway around the world to indulge in this performance art. It’s worse than Jan Brady at the coffee shop. Bummer!

Report: the DNC Launched an Initiative to Infiltrate Talk Radio. Are Their Instructions Still Being Followed?

Westlake Legal Group audio-3153963_1280-620x413 Report: the DNC Launched an Initiative to Infiltrate Talk Radio. Are Their Instructions Still Being Followed? washington D.C. Uncategorized tri talk radio initiative talk radio Rush Limbaugh Media Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories elections democrats Conservatives Congress Campaigns Bill Clinton Allow Media Exception

 

 

What the heck?

According to a new report, prior to the 1996 election — via which Bill Clinton faced a dubious 2nd term — the Democratic Party hatched a plan to inundate conservative talk radio show with callers who were sneakily in fact left-wingers. The mission? To push Democrat talking points.

Evidence of the Talk Radio Initiative was discovered within documents at the Clinton Presidential Library, as noted by The Washington Free Beacon.

According to the article, the effort was launched in light of the tremendous GOP victory of the 1994 midterms — for the first time since 1954, Republicans ruled the House.

In an internal report from the time, the DNC laid it out:

Democrats have largely ignored talk radio, and only since the last election, have we paid attention to how we can win back the airwaves and the discussion. We have now put our frustration into action.

So their idea was to convert hardcore conservative radio listeners with liberal ideas?

Yep. From the Free Beacon:

[W]ith the blessing of the Clinton White House, launched the Talk Radio Initiative (TRI) ahead of the 1996 campaign. The program trained thousands of operatives to call in to radio shows, conduct surveillance of their contents, and secretly disseminate Democratic talking points while posing as ordinary listeners.

Interesting plan.

Michigan Democrats prepared a guide; here’s a sample:

Volunteers must be able to keep the project confidential so as not to create the image of a “Democratic conspiracy” to infiltrate Detroit area talk radio shows. Democratic performance in the 1996 elections will no doubt be affected by the success or failure of this initiative.

So how’d they do?:

Radio show hosts long suspected that someone was training so-called “seminar callers” to inundate their shows with sympathetic callers. Lars Larson, a host in the Pacific Northwest since the mid-1990s, recalled being on the receiving end of many such calls, but was not aware that many may have been trained by the DNC.

“You would get calls, an hour apart, from different people with different voices and different names, but they would talk the same lines. So close that you knew that this was not a coincidence,” Larson said. “It was the same language on the same subject and the same arguments.”

Great jobs, ya stealthy spies.

It’s a real shame — Wolverine State Dems spelled out how to evade capture:

If you are afraid that producers are beginning to recognize your name and are weary of allowing you on the air, use an alias. For example, be Carol today, Sue tomorrow, and Debbie on Friday!

Genius!

According to the Free Beacon’s research, 23 states were involved in the mission, with 4,000 operatives on the ball.

Furthermore:

The records also revealed that the Clinton administration consistently kept tabs on and coordinated with TRI, considering it a crucial pillar of the administration’s plan to neutralize conservative radio in preparation for the 1996 election.

As per the report, at the 1996 Democratic Convention, TRI set up three-hour training sessions for the agents.

Rush Limbaugh responded to news of the initiative Tuesday; check that out here.

So did the project ever officially end?

The DNC-published instructions advised a novel approach:

Sound dumb. Even though you may have indicated a difference of opinion with the host, appear to present an opportunity for him to demolish you with his “superior” intelligence.

Some might suspect the same instructions are still being doled out.

Elizabeth Warren seeks counsel of … Hillary Clinton?

Westlake Legal Group 9a3c70fc-9483-4222-8ff1-7604fb78eeaf Elizabeth Warren seeks counsel of … Hillary Clinton? The Blog President Trump mentor Hillary Clinton Elizabeth Warren Campaigns 2020 election 2020 Democrat candidates

She’s not making a big deal about it publicly, but Senator Elizabeth Warren is seeking campaign advice from Hillary Clinton. Who better to help Warren in establishment Democrat circles than a Clinton?

While lots of the 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls took the time to meet with Hillary and kiss her ring as they began their own campaigns for the party nomination, only Warren has maintained an open line of communication. That is if a report by NBC News is correct.

The two women have kept a line of communication open since the Massachusetts senator decided to run for president — though only a conversation around the time of Warren’s launch has been previously reported — according to several people familiar with their discussions who spoke to NBC on the condition of anonymity because of the political sensitivity of private interactions.

It’s hard to know exactly how many times they’ve reached out to each other — or precisely what they’ve discussed — in part because neither camp wants to reveal much of anything about their interaction and in part because they have each other’s phone numbers, and there are many ways for two high-powered politicians to communicate that don’t involve their staffs.

It’s easy to understand why this relationship would be kept hush-hush. Hillary is a deeply divisive character and, you know, she lost to the bad Orange Man. It turned out that she was a really bad candidate. She was neither as smart nor as tough as she proclaimed. Her one-time friend and supporter, a man who never held any elected office before his run for president, beat her, though she had forty years in and around public service on her resume.

Hillary Clinton is as desperate as any other Trump Deranged Democrat to make sure that he is a one-term president. It makes sense that she would encourage another woman very much like herself. Both are former Republicans, white women in their 70s who are policy wonks. Both have succumbed to the far left of their party in order to try and win elections. Contrast that to Kamala Harris, the only other viable female candidate in the field. Harris, who is fading fast, is just as bad of a candidate as Hillary, and worst of all (for her in Hillary’s eyes) she was recruited by Barack Obama. Elizabeth Warren is Hillary’s only choice for a female candidate.

At the same time, people who know and like both women say there are more similarities between them than some of their partisans would like to admit. Each is a policy powerhouse with an uncommon command of details, and possess the ability to master new material quickly with a deep intellectual curiosity. Like Clinton, Warren focused the early part of her campaign on developing a raft of policy proposals and rolling them out.

More important, an explicit or implicit blessing from Clinton could help Warren if she finds herself battling for delegates and superdelegates at a contested Democratic convention next summer.

We have no indication that this will be a short battle for the nomination. It’s clear that Warren and Bernie are battling for second place, behind Biden. Biden has begun his descent in the polls but still holds a healthy lead. Hillary supporters in 2016 can be mined by Team Warren if she and Bernie end up going all the way to the convention in a dead heat, assuming that Biden doesn’t last until the convention. Warren needs Hillary’s African-American (especially female) support.

Warren and Clinton do have a bit of history working together. Clinton sought her advice in developing policies in 2015 for her campaign. Staff would run policy ideas by Warren for her opinion or criticism. Warren had decided to not run herself and this was Hillary’s team’s way of keeping Warren in the loop. There was also talk that Clinton considered Warren for her vice-president before eventually choosing Tim Kaine.

By that point, Warren already had opted out of mounting her own campaign — disappointing many progressives — when she signed a letter, along with other Democratic women in the Senate encouraging Clinton to run. Later, as Clinton reviewed her options for a vice presidential running mate, Warren made a late ascent onto the short list on the strength of the excitement Clinton and her advisers thought Warren might bring to the ticket.

Warren told Bloomberg Businessweek this summer that she would have accepted the offer, but it went to Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va.

As to what I think the scenario may look like as the Democrat convention approaches, with Biden out of the picture and Warren and Bernie fighting for the nomination, look for Hillary to come out of the shadows. Team Warren will be happy to go public with her support. Hillary could be out on the campaign trail once again, this time in support of another Democrat woman running for president.

That Study On Trump Causing Hate Crimes that CNN Keeps Touting Has Been Debunked, But It Gets Even Better

Westlake Legal Group snopes-fake-news-sites-620x344 That Study On Trump Causing Hate Crimes that CNN Keeps Touting Has Been Debunked, But It Gets Even Better study Politics Hillary Clinton Hate Crimes Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story fake news donald trump democrats Debunked CNN ADL

Whenever something plays into your narrative perfectly, it’s always best to be skeptical. CNN has never learned that lesson and it has led to dozens of published stories over the years on Donald Trump that turned out to be wrong or misleading.

Enter a study released by the Anti-Defamation League and relentlessly pushed by the media. CNN recently re-upped the claim in an on air segment claiming that Trump’s rhetoric “resonates” with white supremacists while citing the aforementioned study.

Well, now that same study has been debunked, and keep reading because it gets even better than that.

A study purporting to show that hate crimes increased 226% in counties that hosted rallies for then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016 has been officially debunked. Not only did the study’s authors fail to account for the fact that political campaigns prefer to host rallies in populous areas, which already experience more hate crimes, but the authors didn’t check to see if the same increase could be applied to Hillary Clinton’s rallies.

The study’s authors purposely left out major context, seemingly not even applying a control, while coming to the conclusion that there was a major spike in hate crimes caused by Trump’s rallies being present in cities. Other problems include them not even adjusting for population. In other words, they simply took totalities of reported hate crimes (many of which weren’t even hate crimes) in major populous areas and compared them to counties with only a fraction of the people, thereby manufacturing an increase.

Then things got really awkward. The original study’s methodology was applied to Hillary Clinton rallies and the results are hilarious.

Simply applying the same formula as the original academics, two Ph.D. students from Harvard University found that “Clinton rallies contribute to an even greater increase in hate crimes incidents than Trump rallies.”

Yes, when using the flawed methods of the much ballyhooed study, Clinton rallies actually showed a greater increase in hate crimes. Now, does this mean that Clinton’s rallies were the cause of such an increase? No, because the increase isn’t even real. This is from the Harvard team that debunked all this.

Both of these results rely on comparing counties with rallies to other counties without them. This produces a glaring problem. Politicians tend to hold political rallies near where large numbers of people live. And in places with more people, the raw number of crimes is generally mechanically higher. Simply put, no one should be surprised that Orange County, California (population 3.19 million) was home to both more reported hate incidents (5) and Trump rallies (2) than Orange County, Indiana (population 19,840, which had zero of each).

They would go on to mince no words about the original study’s veracity, saying this in conclusion.

The Harvard students went a step further. Unlike the original study, they added “a simple statistical control for county population to the original analysis causes the estimated effect of Trump rallies on reported hate incidents to become statistically indistinguishable from zero.”

Once again CNN and the mainstream media at large have been caught with their pants down. Will we get an on air correction? Nah, of course not. They’ll just move on to the next faux outrage and the cycle will repeat as it always does. It’s all partisan and it’s all about the narrative.

Hillary Clinton gushes over American-born Royal everyone hates

Westlake Legal Group Hillary-Clinton Hillary Clinton gushes over American-born Royal everyone hates think tank The European House – Ambrosetti. The Blog Smart Works Sarah Latham meghan markle Italy Hillary Clinton fashion Duchess of Sussex

Hillary Clinton proves once again just how tone-deaf she can be. The latest example is with the headlines coming out after an Instagram post on Friday. She took a moment or two out of her weekend to praise the charity work of Duchess Meghan a.k.a. Duchess of Sussex. Also, a.k.a. Meghan Markle, an American actress, and social justice warrior.

Meghan landed herself a royal catch – Prince Harry, son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles. Harry is the prince who will never be King of England. The new duchess has developed quite a trail of ugly press reports in England, exhibiting diva behavior and treating staff poorly. You can see why she would fit the profile of someone Hillary Clinton would gush over.

The 71-year-old presidential wannabe is spending the weekend in Italy at a conference hosted by an Italian think tank, The European House – Ambrosetti. For some reason, she is an invited speaker. The theme is “Intelligence On The World, Europe and Italy” according to the press release. Perhaps Hillary saw some reporting on Duchess Meghan coming to the end of her maternity leave and starting up her charity work again next week. Naturally, Hillary seized the opportunity to insert herself into the story. She is “inspired” by Markle’s work with Smart Works, a charity that provides clothing and coaching for women seeking employment.

Markle has designed a fashion line of workwear to aid the charity and will make her public comeback with a visit to Smart Works to promote it.

All of Meghan’s charity work appears to have touched the former US secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate. Hillary shared a photo of Meghan hugging another woman on Instagram on Friday and sang her praises in the accompanying post. She said: “I’m so inspired by how Meghan Markle—aka one half of @sussexroyal—is representing the U.S. in the U.K. and on the world stage.”

She added: “Meghan’s new project: Helping @SmartWorksCharity equip women who have been out of the workforce with the office essentials they need to feel confident in job interviews and beyond. The ability to earn their own paycheck is a key part of women’s economic, social, and cultural equality, and it can all start with some smart suits.”

Bless her heart. Hillary probably wouldn’t have caused a stir as a participant in this Italian think tank’s conference but she cleverly used social media to grab some headlines in Europe. How did she do that? Well, it may be because of the fact that Meghan and Harry hired Sara Latham as head of communications on their staff. Latham is a former senior adviser to Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign. The Washington D.C. swamp crossed the pond. Latham is a dual citizen and has a work history in both countries.

Latham worked with the Democratic nominee during her 2016 presidential campaign. She also served as chief of staff to John Podesta, the chairman of Clinton’s campaign.

She had an integral role in vetting candidates for Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, USA Today reported.

She also worked for Bill Clinton in the White House in the late ’90s. According to her LinkedIn, she was special assistant to the chief of staff and deputy assistant to the president and deputy director of scheduling from 1996 to 2000.

USA Today called Latham a “longtime Democratic fixer.” In 1996, she was recruited to assist with Bill Clinton’s re-election campaign, and 2008, she helped Podesta arrange secret interviews for President Obama’s prospective cabinet members. The Telegraph reported that she was part of the POTUS’s “transition team” when he was first elected to office.

Apparently Latham has been hired to fix the press stories about Meghan. Good luck with that.

Hillary isn’t the only American public figure in attendance at the conference. Also there and publicized as speakers are Senator Lindsey Graham and Cindy McCain, according to the press release. Cindy McCain is debating Marcus Kerber, German Vice Minister of the Interior, Building and Community. The subject is listed as Today’s Social Challenges. I wasn’t aware Mrs. McCain is a debater.

Graham and Clinton are scheduled to deliver speeches under the heading of Country Focus USA. The conference boasts “We are honored to be hosting an official delegation of five members of the US Senate and House of Representatives” which means American taxpayers probably paid for this Italian adventure. It’s good to be a swamp-dweller.

I’d be willing to bet that Hillary takes the opportunity to slam President Trump over something or the other during her little speech. Think of how tickled her pal Meghan would be, given how she was such a big Hillary supporter in 2016. It would be more headlines for the woman who is still unable to accept the results of the 2016 presidential election.

Newest Democratic fundraiser: Andrew McCabe

Westlake Legal Group a-1 Newest Democratic fundraiser: Andrew McCabe The Blog Russia Pennsylvania Lancaster Hillary Clinton fundraiser Federal Bureau of Investigation democrats comey Andrew McCabe Allahpundit

Via the Free Beacon. Given all the ResistanceBucksWestlake Legal Group 2122 Newest Democratic fundraiser: Andrew McCabe The Blog Russia Pennsylvania Lancaster Hillary Clinton fundraiser Federal Bureau of Investigation democrats comey Andrew McCabe Allahpundit   the left showered on him after he was fired, it’s only proper that he return the favor.

Did I miss a news story somewhere or isn’t this guy still under threat of indictment? The interest in him lately from across the aisle would have you believe that he’s a political rising star, not a man staring at the possibility of prison. He just landed a CNN contributor’s gig, he has a book out, now he’s giving speeches for the opposition party in 2020 swing states. When did Andrew McCabe become Stacey Abrams? Are Democrats lining him up for a House run or something?

In the age of FaceTime and Skype, he could conduct a front-porch campaign from behind the glass at the federal pen, I suppose.

McCabe is now also participating in Democratic fundraising events. According to the Pennsylvania Democratic Party’s website, McCabe is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at a fundraising banquet for the Lancaster County Democratic Committee.

Tickets for the event, which can be purchased through ActBlue, range from $80 to $160. The more expensive “Speaker’s Circle” tickets come with access to a private reception with McCabe and photograph with him. He is scheduled to speak for 45 minutes and take questions for 15 minutes, according to the site…

McCabe told event organizers that he plans to discuss his “one-on-one interactions with Donald Trump” during the event. He also will cover the “fallout and aftermath” of former FBI director James Comey’s firing, “Russian meddling in the 2016 election,” and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The idea of hating Trump so much that you’d pop for 160 bucks for a personal photo with Andrew McCabe fills me with a degree of dread normally only experienced when contemplating death. It’s one notch up from paying for an audience with the Krassenstein brothers.

For cripes sake, you can buy a house in parts of the midwest for $160. In Detroit, certainly.

My first thought upon hearing that McCabe was now in demand on the Democratic political circuit was naturally, “What about Comey?” If McCabe’s appeal to the left derives from Trump’s antipathy to him, surely a man whom Trump loathes even more like Big Jim would be that much more appealing. Plus, Comey was nearly charged by the DOJ for his anti-Trump activities in leaking memos. What better proof of commitment to the Resistance could there be than that? He’s even been donating money to the party! But then I remembered: Oh, right, his last-minute letter about reopening the Emailgate probe may have tanked Hillary’s chances of winning the election, thus enabling the very presidency that Democrats so despise. Comey will never overcome that to regain respectability among them, no matter how many nasty tweets Trump posts about him. He’ll have to watch the Democratic romance with disgraced Trump-hating former FBI officials play out from the outside, with his face pressed against the window.

The Only Reason This Kuwaiti Flag
Isn’t an Iraqi Flag – Is US

 

Most of the world is neither a friendly nor appreciative place.

No matter what we in the United States do to help the rest of the planet – no matter how much for how many countries – we only continue to be hated and reviled.

A lot of it is not our fault.  Because human nature.

Life is high school on steroids.

Most people in high school really didn’t like the varsity quarterback.  He was athletic.  And popular.  And dated multiple cheerleaders.  Most of the rest of the student body resented him much more than even those who liked him – liked him.

The United States – is the world’s high school quarterback.  Our economic and military prowess – is going to be resented.

The rest of it – is our fault.  Because human nature.

We do insist on sticking our enormous proboscis into all sorts of things and places – where neither it nor we belong.

We have a particular affection for armed invasions – for all the (publicly asserted) right reasons, of course.

We are now almost two decades into Afghanistan.  Which started righteously – we were attacked on 9/11/2001 by Islamist freaks based out of there.

But what should have been at most a six-month endeavor – has dragged on and on and….  With no end in sight.

The things we were told prevented us from leaving in Year Three and Year Eight, and Year Twelve, and… – are exactly the same things we are told prevent us from leaving now.  With no end in sight.

A sad, horrible, horrendous waste of blood, time and treasure – by any rational measure.

One of the many follies this Afghani folly’s proponents have incessantly put forward – since even before we invaded – is that our efforts would “win the hearts and minds of the Afghans.”

Ummm…they still have not.

Green on Blue Attacks:

“‘Green on blue attacks’ is the name given to a growing series of incidents where seemingly rogue Afghan security forces turn their guns on their NATO counterparts.”

Protestors Burn U.S. Flag in Pakistan and Afghanistan

In fact, we never will “win the hearts and minds.”  In Afghanistan – or anywhere else on Earth.  Most especially under arms.

As French politician Maximillian Robespierre knew:

“The most extravagant idea that can be born in the head of a political thinker is to believe that it suffices for people to enter, weapons in hand, among a foreign people and expect to have its laws and constitution embraced. No one loves armed missionaries; the first lesson of nature and prudence is to repulse them as enemies.”

Even when we do do a country a real solid – in exactly the right way – it doesn’t help or matter.

In August 1990, Iraq invaded Kuwait.  The United States led a 35-nation coalition that rapidly expelled Iraq.  After which we all got the heck out – and returned Kuwait to the Kuwaitis.

So we’re Kuwait’s eternal heroes, right?  They love US forever, yes?

Not so much:

“Kuwait votes against the United States 67% of the time (at the United Nations).”

Which brings us to today.

Much of Kuwait’s economy – is business centered on and around raising oil from beneath their feet and selling it.  A lot of help in so doing – comes from US.

One such US company – is KGL Investment Company:

“A Kuwaiti investment fund is calling on the Kuwaiti government to clarify its position over close to $500 million of the fund’s assets which are currently stuck in a Dubai bank, after growing concerned about possible efforts by some Kuwaiti individuals to seize the money.”

Kuwait and Dubai have frozen KGLs half a billion dollars – and then some:

“This is just one part of a wider dispute which includes allegations of corruption and embezzlement involving Russian businesswoman Marsha Lazareva, managing director of KGL Investment (KGLI), which sponsored The Port Fund.

“Lazareva was handed a 10-year jail sentence by a court in Kuwait in May. Her lawyers, Washington D.C.-based law firm Crowell & Moring, say she was subjected to a ‘show trial’ and have started proceedings to set up an international tribunal to examine the case.”

So Lazareva and her four-year-old son were held captive in Kuwait until she was released on bail.  On a ridiculous conviction and facing ridiculous fines.

A great and growing group of people are calling for action – including from the Donald Trump Administration:

Lawmakers From Both Parties Request Action from Treasury to Help Businesswoman Stuck in Kuwait

Both inside and outside government – and the US:

“Among those advocating for Lazareva’s release are Neil Bush, the son of the late President George H.W. Bush, Louis Freeh, former director of the FBI, Jim Nicholson, former United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs, former U.S. Representative Ed Royce, Sergey Lavrov, foreign minister of Russia, British Barrister Lord Carlile and members of UK Parliament….”

Why all this Kuwaiti nonsense?  Besides innate ungratefulness?  Kuwaiti cronyism:

“Behold Agility Logistics.  A Kuwaiti company – with close ties to the Kuwaiti government.

“Agility’s CEO, Essa Anwar Al-Saleh – is a former Chairman of Kuwait’s Gulf Bank.  So he exercised significant power over Kuwaiti commerce and finance.

“And it appears Al-Saleh still does.  Agility is a KGL competitor – with the home nation advantage.  The Kuwaiti government appears to be (holding the Lazarevas and) freezing KGLs coin – to benefit Agility.”

In fact

“Agility, a Kuwait-based multi-billion dollar logistics company spawned by the U.S. invasion of Iraq….”

…we made Agility’s very existence possible.

Yet again – no appreciation.  Only antagonism.

Oh: Agility has a long history of screwing its clients.  Including US:

“The Defense Logistics Agency suspended Agility, which specializes in logistics, in November 2009 after its parent company Public Warehousing Company K.S.C. was indicted in Atlanta on $6 billion in fraud charges stemming from food services contracts for troops in Iraq, Kuwait and the Middle East region.”

Defense Contractor Resolves Criminal, Civil and Administrative Liability Related to Food Contracts:

“Agility Pays $95 Million and Gives Up $249 Million in Claims to (the US) DOD.”

So you have an ungrateful Kuwait – screwing a US company and its executive and thumbing its nose at US.

So as to benefit its crony, corrupt in-house company – that has already, repeatedly screwed US.

This cacophony of nonsense has dragged on, and on, and….

It is high time we bring it to an end.

Ingrate Kuwait has already held the advantage for far too long.

Please note: This piece has been updated.  We wrote Mrs. Lazareva and her son are being held captive in Kuwait.  They were – until she was finally released on bail.  Please forgive the error.
