Joe Biden’s Campaign Has the Forward Trajectory of a Bag of Jell-O

Westlake Legal Group bidendummy-620x388 Joe Biden’s Campaign Has the Forward Trajectory of a Bag of Jell-O south carolina Politics New Hampshire Joe Biden Iowa Front Page Stories Florida Featured Story elections democrats Allow Media Exception 2020 Democrat Primary

I don’t know why anyone ever thought Joe Biden would win. On a good day, when he was sniffing the hair of random women, or telling racist jokes, or lying about his family history, or shaking down banks for large loans he would never have to repay, the best you could say about Joe Biden was that he was inoffensive and could work a small group of elderly voters  in a workmanlike manner. Add to that his age and obvious cognitive impairment, and what you have left is the sad shell of a Democrat apparatchik whose appeal to the Democrat base is somewhere between “it’s my turn” and “I’m not batsh** crazy like those other guys” and to the general electorate is “I’m not Donald Trump.”

While the RCP average (which, let’s be honest, is a lot like averaging apples and oranges and declaring the result to be kumquats) still shows Biden with a 7 point lead, that number is both a) meaningless (as there is no national primary) and b) deceptive. Over the past three weeks we’ve seen a major shift in the landscape with Elizabeth Warren pulling even with Biden.

Internal polling by Biden’s own campaign shows him in a freefall:

With more than four months until Iowa’s Feb. 3 caucus, there is plenty of time for the dynamics of the race to change. But there’s also cause for some alarm for Biden. In New Hampshire, Tyson’s just-completed 600-likely voter poll shows Warren with 18 percent of the vote and Biden 15 percent in an open-ended ballot question. It’s a dramatic change from his last poll, with Biden dropping 18 points while Warren gained 7 — a 25-point shift.

Biden’s level of support in South Carolina makes it his firewall state, but even in South Carolina there are troubling signs of erosion. While he remains on top, among black voters, who are more than 60 percent of the Democratic electorate, Biden has plummeted 19 points in Tyson’s polls. That’s a potential leading indicator of the problems he could face after South Carolina’s Feb. 29 primary when many of the minority-heavy Southeastern states — as well as Texas and California — beginning voting on Super Tuesday, March 3, and thereafter.

Florida, where about 28 percent of the Democratic primary electorate is black, votes March 17. Biden is in first there with 24 percent of the Democratic vote, losing 15 points since May in Tyson’s polls. Warren moved into second with 11 percent, a 6-point increase while Sanders is in third with 5 percent, an 11-point loss since before the first candidate debate.

The percentage of Democratic voters who were undecided also shot up by double-digits in polls of the state.

In Iowa, Warren has pulled ahead of Joe Biden — marginally — for the first time, according to the latest Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom poll released Saturday. Pollster J. Ann Selzer’s highly regarded survey of caucus-goers showed Warren was benefiting from an enthusiasm gap — 32 percent said they’re “extremely enthusiastic” about caucusing for the Massachusetts senator, compared with 22 percent those who support the former vice president.

My contention was, and is, that the Ukraine silliness is going to mortally wound Biden because no matter how much the left and NeverTrump lecture people on how all the Euros wanted the Ukrainian prosecutor fired because he is corrupt no one really believes that while everyone understands Joe Biden using his clout to protect his son. And so long as President Trump continues to hammer on that subject, the narrative will stick to Biden and his core quality that would lead anyone to vote for him–electability–becomes more and more tenuous.

The New York Times reports that Biden’s supporters are running scared and are organizing a Super PAC to staunch the bleeding:

Allies of Joseph R. Biden Jr., concerned about his slipping poll numbers in the Democratic presidential primary and an onslaught of attacks from President Trump, are weighing whether to mobilize a super PAC supporting Mr. Biden and have held conversations with wealthy donors to gauge their interest in contributing money.

I can save you the trouble. Zero. None. Zilch. Nada. Because that isn’t how any of this works. Biden doesn’t have a massively engaged fan base. He can’t pack arenas for his stump speeches. He was the comfort candidate in the beginning and now he’s dying and it is only going to get worse. No one opens their checkbooks to the kind of donation that is needed to make a difference in a campaign when the candidate is losing momentum and doesn’t seem to understand why the hell he’s even running beyond providing more opportunities for Hunter Biden to grift.

At the bottom of that NYT piece was this rather ominous statement:

The next round of fund-raising reports, due after the end of the month, will also reveal whether Mr. Biden is still in a strong financial position relative to his nearest competitors. In the last quarter, Mr. Biden raised the second-most money of any candidate, trailing only Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind. But he finished June with less money in the bank than Mr. Buttigieg, Ms. Warren, Mr. Sanders and Senator Kamala Harris of California.

And this broke earlier in the day.

If Joe Biden loses Iowa and New Hampshire, he can hope all he wants for a South Carolina win but if it is anything less than a blowout, the momentum will be seen to be with Warren. And unless fundraising picks up, Biden won’t be around for South Carolina.

Douchebag Reporter Who Tried To Ruin Good Samaritan’s Life Is Now Playing the Victim After He Was Fired

Westlake Legal Group mob-torches-pitchforks-620x354 Douchebag Reporter Who Tried To Ruin Good Samaritan’s Life Is Now Playing the Victim After He Was Fired The Des Moines Register Social Media Social Justice Politics political correctness Media Front Page Stories douchebaggery democrats Culture Carson King Buzzfeed Allow Media Exception Aaron Calvin

You guys all remember Aaron Calvin, right?

Last weekend, a guy named Carson King made a viral appeal for beer money which brought in over $1 million. King donated the money to a children’s hospital.

Calvin is the noxious little BuzzFeed alum working for the Des Moines Register who wrote the story. His idea of doing a “background check” on King included going back into King’s tweets to when he was 16 and happened to quote a racially charged joke from the comedy show Tosh.o. This resulted in King being subject to a lot of public humiliation.

But Karma is real and, as it turned out, Calvin had a lot of very ugly stuff in his social media and it was from only a few years ago, after he was an adult. The Des Moines Register investigated him and today he was disappeared from that paper.

My colleague Brandon Morse takes the high road here and doesn’t want Calvin to be fired. I respectfully differ. I want him made unemployable for a period of years, if not his entire life. I want him working at a succession of minimum wage and menial and tedious and dirty jobs. And every day I want him to spend hours contemplating what kind of a pathetic douchebag he is. But enough of the good news. Because I have more good news.

Calvin has run back to BuzzFeed to play the victim. That’s right. A noxious little twerp who turned a guy’s life upside down for the sake of a few clicks is now the victim.

Soon, influential right-wing media figures also began circulating screenshots of Calvin’s own past offensive tweets that had been uncovered. In posts dating back to 2010, Calvin had used “gay” as a pejorative, written “fuck all cops,” and spelled out the word “niggas” twice when he was quoting others, including a Kanye West lyric. “Now that gay marriage is legal,” he wrote in one 2012 tweet, “I’m totally going to marry a horse.”

Calvin told BuzzFeed News these were “frankly embarrassing” tweets that he “would not have published today,” but said they had been “taken out of context” and were being used to “wield disingenuous arguments against me.”

This is such a self-serving crock of sh**. The tweets were not taken out of context any more that were Carson King’s. There were no disingenuous arguments made against him. He’s a terrible person with no moral character whatsoever.

He was given the chance to apologize an decided that being petulant and snarking his employer was a great evolutionary strategy:

Westlake Legal Group aaron-calvin-tweet-620x351 Douchebag Reporter Who Tried To Ruin Good Samaritan’s Life Is Now Playing the Victim After He Was Fired The Des Moines Register Social Media Social Justice Politics political correctness Media Front Page Stories douchebaggery democrats Culture Carson King Buzzfeed Allow Media Exception Aaron Calvin

“I regret publishing that tweet now,” Calvin told BuzzFeed News.

No sh**? Really? You regret it “now?”

As soon as the story broke, Calvin said he began receiving a barrage of death threats. He said HR reps at Gannett, which owns the Des Moines Register, forbade him from speaking to the media and told him to leave his apartment for his own safety. They offered to put him up in a hotel, but he stayed with a friend instead.

“I recognize that I’m not the first person to be doxed like this — this whole campaign was taken up by right-wing ideologues and largely driven by that force,” he said. “It was just a taste of what I assume that women and journalists of color suffer all the time, but the kind of locality and regional virality of the story made it so intense.”

On Thursday, while he was speaking to police about the death threats, Calvin said he got a call from Gannett representatives. “They told me they were going to offer me an option — that I could resign or I could be fired — with no severance,” he said. “It was really a semantic difference, I guess, so I chose to be fired.”

He wasn’t doxxed. People simply did what he did to Carson King. And you didn’t suffer what “women and journalists of color suffer all the time,” you suffered what noxious, self-righteous douches suffer all to infrequently.

He also expressed his frustration about the “false narrative about me ‘canceling’ Carson.”

“Carson was never in danger of being canceled — there was no attempt or intent to quote-unquote ‘cancel’ him,’” Calvin said. “He’s raised hundreds of thousands more dollars since this happened. The governor of Iowa declared a ‘Carson King Day.’”

I guess he forgot about the humiliation and Anheuser-Busch cutting ties with King. The only reason that King survived was the shot Calvin took at King was so pathetic and cheap that it offended the conscience of a nation.

Calvin said he’s still afraid to go out in public and is still staying at his friend’s house. He isn’t sure what he will do next, but hopes he can keep reporting.

“I’m just taking it day by day,” he said. “I feel like I’m a good writer and a good reporter and I was doing my job to the best of my ability.”

Calvin said he also still deeply believes in the “necessity of local journalism.”

“Frankly, it’s really disappointing to me to be abandoned by my former employer,” he said. “I still in a lot of ways support the Register — I just wish they had believed in me.”

Screw him. I hope his misery lasts for years or decades. I hope people see him and point him out to their kids as an object lesson about the price of rampant douchebaggery as a life style choice. If any good comes of this maybe it will be that Calvin and his fellow travelers will discover that this stupidity cuts both ways and that they shouldn’t so eager to make rules for others with the idea that they won’t have to live by the same rules. Maybe, just maybe, some jerk-off at BuzzFeed will get ready to pull the trigger on some stupid stuff like this and pause for a second…and delete what they’ve written for fear of the crapstorm that may be heading their way. But I’m not counting on it.

Another Major Part of the Whistleblower Memo Called out as False

Westlake Legal Group fake Another Major Part of the Whistleblower Memo Called out as False President Trump impeachment investigation Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Abuse of Power 2020

The whistleblower complaint imploded big time yesterday when part of it was specifically called out as false by a senior government official, according to Christina Ruffini, the State Department and Foreign Affairs Reporter for CBS News.

Another problem in the story also emerged, according to Fox.

[A]ccording to the whistleblower complaint, by mid-May, U.S. diplomat Kurt Volker sought to “contain the damage” from Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani’s outreach to Ukraine.

But a July 19 text message conversation from Volker to Giuliani, provided to Fox News on Thursday, showed that Volker had in fact encouraged Giuliani to reach out to Ukraine — even sending Giuliani a message reading, “connecting you here with Andrey Yermak, who is very close to President Zelensky.”

Additionally, the complaint said Trump “suggested that Mr. Zelensky might want to keep” his current prosecutor general, a claim not supported by the transcript.

There were of course other things wrong with the claim to begin with, such as the claim that there was a quid pro quo offered when there was none, as the transcript shows. Ukraine has also made it clear that they did not in any way feel pressured in the phone call, despite the whistleblower saying differently. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said it was a “normal call” and “no one pushed me.”

But now there’s even more.

The whistleblower complained that there was nothing at all sensitive in the call. So that there was no justification for thereafter secure storage system in the NSC. The argument was that Trump just didn’t want people to hear the conversation.

As it turns out, that’s also wrong, as Undercover Huber notes in a great Twitter thread.

The administration also had another very legitimate reason for wanting to secure the information. Earlier in the administration, there were a lot of leaks they were trying to stop. According to ABC, more things were thus put in secure storage than previously.

So either someone in the chain of unreliable hearsay on the whistleblower memo was mistaken or someone along the way wasn’t telling the truth.

Again.

So when are Democrats going to throw in the towel on this?

The Media Tries To Cover For Adam Schiff’s Dishonesty But He Knows Exactly What He’s Doing

Westlake Legal Group schiff-bug-eyes-620x566 The Media Tries To Cover For Adam Schiff’s Dishonesty But He Knows Exactly What He’s Doing whistleblower complaint Washington Post Politics Politico Media Front Page Stories Featured Story douchebaggery donald trump democrats Congress Allow Media Exception adam schiff Aaron Blake

Yesterday, California congressman and renowned pencil-neck Adam Schiff made his history of bizarre and inappropriate actions even more bizarre and inappropriate by reading his own made-up version of President Trump’s conversation with Ukraine President Zelensky into the Congressional Record as though it were real.

This is the essence of what the president communicates: We’ve been very good to your country. Very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what, I don’t see much reciprocity here. You know what I mean? I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from you though. And I’m going to say this only seven times, so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of dirt, on this and on that. I’m going to put you in touch with people, and not just any people. I’m going to put you in touch with the Attorney General of the United States — my Attorney General, Bill Barr — he’s got the whole weight of American law enforcement behind him. And I’m going to put you in touch with Rudy, you’re going to love him. Trust me. You know what I’m asking, so I’m only going to say this a few more times, in a few more ways. And don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I asked.

As soon as sane people objected to Schiff trying to turn an allegedly serious hearing into a dramatic reading try-out for America’s Got Talent, the media jumped to his defense. Here’s the Washington Post’s Aaron Blake carrying water for Schiff:

Here’s Politico doing the same. In their deranged little fantasy, the GOP are the bad guys for complaining about Schiff’s tactic.

— House Intelligence Chairman ADAM SCHIFF (D-Calif.) focused on whether MAGUIRE went to the White House before DOJ to seek guidance on how to deal with the whistleblower complaint. Note: Schiff started the hearing with an imagined conversation between Trump and the Ukrainian president. Republicans continually brought this up, saying he was trying to mislead people.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer tried to give him a way out but Schiff declined. Why? Because he knows he can literally do anything he wants and the stump-broke political press in Washington, D.C., will still give him a tongue-bath.

This was not a parody, it was a calculated strategy. Schiff knows his allies at CNN/MSNBC?ABC/CBS/NBC will play his soliloquy without any preface and leave the viewers under the impression that he read from the transcript directly. Again, this type of bone-deep dishonesty and lack of integrity is just who Adam Schiff is. We’ve known that for three years…at least. What is becoming obvious is that the media aren’t just left-leaning, they are every bit a duplicitous as Schiff.

Wealthy Gun Control Proponent Michael Bloomberg Dumps Cold Water on Beto’s Gun Confiscation Plan

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke speaks at the Iowa Federation of Labor convention, Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2019, in Altoona, Iowa. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)

Failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke has taken plenty of flak from Republicans and even some Democrats in the aftermath of announcing his so-called “gun buyback” program, but he recently received criticism from an unlikely source: Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has spent millions of dollars promoting gun control policies and gun control candidates all across the country.

Bloomberg appeared on the PBS program “The Firing Line” with host Margaret Hoover this week. During the program, he was shown the video clip featuring the “Hell yes” comments O’Rourke made at the Democratic presidential debate earlier this month when asked by ABC News moderator David Muir about his gun confiscation plan.

“That’s why I won’t be a candidate of the Democratic Party. Because it’s so impractical,” Bloomberg responded after watching the clip. “I don’t know how you’d even do it. It would be such a rallying cry for people that say they’re overstepping their bounds.”

When Hoover interjected to ask if he was saying that Beto’s plan was “not the way to win this issue”, Bloomberg agreed.

“That is not the way to win this issue. First thing, AK-47s should not be in the hands of individuals. They are guns built, not for hunting. They’re guns built to kill the maximum number of people as quickly as you can, and we shouldn’t have them,” he stated.

So if Beto’s solution is “impractical” per Bloomberg only because he doesn’t know how it could be accomplished, what’s his suggested alternative? One way he gave is to take action against gun manufacturers.

“So you can go after the gun manufacturers and get them to stop it,” he opined. “But how you would go and get those back out [from private citizens?] – you might have an incentive program and maybe people would turn them in. But I don’t even think that would happen.”

His answer to combating gun violence is more background checks and red flag laws. Gun confiscation programs like Beto’s are not practical, Bloomberg told Hoover, because gun owners tend to own lots of guns.

Watch the interview clip below:

Bloomberg’s comments about Beto O’Rourke’s radical plan mostly in line with what pro-gun control groups like the Giffords group stated in response to what he said at the debate:

Several gun control groups stressed Friday that they were not advocating confiscation, but they also didn’t follow Coons’ lead in condemning O’Rourke’s declaration.

“I think it is very understandable that he is taking a policy position that the larger gun safety community hasn’t taken and he’s trying to push the envelope,” said Robin Lloyd, managing director of Giffords, the gun control group named after Gabby Giffords, the Arizona congresswoman who survived a gunshot wound to the head in 2011. “If the American voter does not think this is an appropriate solution, they’ll let us know.”

I think they already are.

Woman’s Boyfriend Shoots Her in the Head, but She Forgets for Almost Two Months so They Keep Dating

Westlake Legal Group jerrontae-cain-mugshot-SCREENSHOT-620x326 Woman’s Boyfriend Shoots Her in the Head, but She Forgets for Almost Two Months so They Keep Dating Uncategorized romance relationships Not Today Internet nicole gordon jerrontae cain Guns Georgia Front Page Stories Culture crime attempted murder ATLANTA Allow Media Exception

[Screenshot from Twitter, https://twitter.com/whnt/status/1177696919713456129?]

 

“Not tonight, dear, I have a headache.”

So goes the ol’ lame excuse.

But Nicole Gordon of Atlanta really had a solid reason for sittin’ out an amorous episode or two: The potential sexy-time needs of her boyfriend, Jerrontae Cain, notwithstanding, she really did have a sizable noggin throb.

And not only that, but there was an even more substantial reason the 42-year-old may wanna take a raincheck on the come-hithers for a Carnal Cruise to Pleasureland from her boarding beau: Jerrontae had shot her in the head.

Normally, a bullet to the cerebellum might cause a relationship to downright fall apart, but heck — it’s like Sharon said to Susan in The Parent Trap:

“That’s how true love creates its beautiful agony — all splendid lovers had just dreadful times! Pelias and Melisande, Daphnis and Chloë. History’s just jammed with stories of lovers parted by some silly thing!”

How deep is your love? Nicole and Jerrontae’s is — at the very least — skull deep.

So they sojourned on for nearly a couple months — when it’s true love, ya just gotta give it a shot.

But eventually, a family member encouraged Nic to hoof it to the hospital over her terrible pounding above the neck.

And doctors were shocked by what they found: There was a lead slug embedded at the base of her skull.

Nicole was just as surprised: Apparently, the trauma of the headshot had caused her to lose her memory. She had no idea her main squeeze had squeezed — not another woman, but a trigger.

She told doctors she recalled arguing with Jerrontae in their car while she was driving, and that the driver’s side window had shattered and fallen on her, knocking her unconscious. Also: The car had crashed into a tree.

I can’t imagine Jerrontae’s surprise when she woke up and was all, “My head hurts. But you wanna get some waffles?”

Actually, it didn’t happen quite that way, but close enough: They went to his mom’s house and treated a cut to the back of her head, which she thought was from the glass.

On the other side of an issued warrant, Jerrontae Cain, 39, was taken into custody after being found hiding in an attic.

This January.

Nicole was shot in 2017.

Jerrontae took it like a pro — he’d been arrested 13 times before.

At trial, surely all mouths hung agape as Nicole’s friends testified her ex had physically abused her in the past.

As reported by The Daily Mail, doctors have declined to remove the bullet in Nicole’s head, for fear the procedure would kill her.

True love makes a heart skip a beat; Nicole’s almost made hers skip the rest, too.

Cupid shoots an arrow; Jerrontae got a bit more modern.

But in the end, Nicole found freedom and her firearmin’ former flame got fitted for a jailbird jumpsuit. He’ll be wearing it for 25 years.

Given that turnabout’s fair play, the previously-passion-fueled pistoleer had better watch out — they have love guns in prison, too. But I don’t think they go for the back of the head. Their aim’s a little…lower.

And as Jerrontae taught Nicole — and as the 1976 superhit says — “Love hurts.”

What exactly have Democrats achieved since President Donald Trump was elected to office?

Well, it doesn’t seem like much. Indeed, it seems like all they have done is try to take Trump out. From the Russia collusion hoax to the present whistleblower complaint, they’re always and only about excuses to force him from office. It doesn’t matter what the excuse is or if there is no evidence.

But Americans are not with the Democratic politicians on this.

From USA Today:

A new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows a majority of Americans do not think President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office.

Only 37% of respondents think the president should be impeached and removed, while 57% do not.

In a clear partisan divide, 4% of Republicans and 73% of Democrats surveyed support impeachment. Those who responded against impeachment include 95% of Republicans surveyed and 21% of Democrats….

The Quinnipiac survey shows not much change in public opinion from last month, when a Monmouth poll also showed that 59% of respondents were opposed to impeachment and removal from office.

So despite all their efforts and constant assists from the media, Americans still are not buying what Democrats are selling.

Americans have already seen this movie, multiple times, and they’re tired of it.

And no one sums up the impeachment mania of the Democrats better than this man, a New Hampshire voter. He says it, for all of us.

“Biden got a nice little deal for his boy and got a whole bunch of money for him and his firm and nobody said nothing about it,” the man observed. “But all of a sudden, Trump opens his mouth and says something, and oh my god, impeach him!”

He chastised the Congress. “I think some of these people in Congress should get back to doing their job instead of what they’ve been doing for two years. We have people that are living in this country who are depending on them, doing stuff for us. And they’re not doing anything for us.”

The reporter interjects, saying Democrats are moving forward toward on impeachment, as though that were actually doing something for Americans. To which the New Hampshire man responds, “They’re crazy!”

Exactly.

This voter and other Americans are looking for what politicians are doing to help make America better.

They’re hearing that from Trump and the Republicans. They’re not hearing it from the Democrats who are just talking impeachment and taking their money.

And it’s these Americans who the Democrats are going to hear from in 2020.

This is a major, major development in the Trump-Ukraine saga and it points exactly at what a lot of people suspected.

The Federalist’s Sean Davis has discovered that the intel community secretly changed the rules governing whistle-blowers, including amending the required form, in order to allow 2nd hand information to suffice. This happened just days before the Trump-Ukraine whistle-blower filed his complaint.

The brand new version of the whistleblower complaint form, which was not made public until after the transcript of Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky and the complaint addressed to Congress were made public, eliminates the first-hand knowledge requirement and allows employees to file whistleblower complaints even if they have zero direct knowledge of underlying evidence and only “heard about [wrongdoing] from others.”

The internal properties of the newly revised “Disclosure of Urgent Concern” form, which the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) requires to be submitted under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA), show that the document was uploaded on September 24, 2019, at 4:25 p.m., just days before the anti-Trump complaint was declassified and released to the public. The markings on the document state that it was revised in August 2019, but no specific date of revision is disclosed…

A previous version of the whistleblower complaint document, which the ICIG and DNI until recently provided to potential whistleblowers, declared that any complaint must contain only first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoing and that complaints that provide only hearsay, rumor, or gossip would be rejected.

“The [Intelligence Community Inspector General] cannot transmit information via the ICPWA based on an employee’s second-hand knowledge of wrongdoing,” the previous form stated under the bolded heading “FIRST-HAND INFORMATION REQUIRED.” “This includes information received from another person, such as when an employee informs you that he/she witnessed some type of wrongdoing.”

“If you think that wrongdoing took place, but can provide nothing more than second-hand or unsubstantiated assertions, [the Intelligence Community Inspector General] will not be able to process the complaint or information for submission as an ICWPA,” the form concluded.

Many have been baffled by the ability of the whistle-blower to file a complaint and force the release of a classified transcript based on nothing but 2nd and 3rd hand, illegal leaks. Now we know how that was possible. The Intel Community changed the rules at the same time the complaint was being written.

Here’s the biggest red flag with that. That complaint was so well written, so thorough, that there’s noway it wasn’t done over the course of weeks with involvement of others. Yet, it was submitted just days after this rule change was finalized and the news forms revised. That points directly at the whistle-blower and his team not only being aware the rule change would happen, but that the rule change was made specifically for them.

Here’s another issue that’s going to be pressed in the coming days. Was the form even really revised in August? Because the actual form that claims an August revision was only actually released two days ago on September 25th. It looks like it could be back-fill to cover up the intel community originally breaking the rules by allowing the complaint.

This complaint is looking more and more like a coordinated hit. The way it was written, the timeline involved, the way Adam Schiff knew about it weeks before it was even filed, and now this rule change which made it even possible. It’s all too much to be coincidence.

Certainly, the mainstream media will ignore this as they always do. The real test will be whether certain conservatives who’ve been defending all this the past few days will now begin to question their presumptions.

For all the gnashing of teeth and sneering condemnations hurled at those who have used the term “deep state,” that’s what this is. This is un-elected, secret government officials trying to remove a President and being willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish that.

It’s out in the open now and it has to be reckoned with.

You Knew It Was Coming: Check out the Whistleblower’s GoFundMe

GoFundMe and other such services have provided a great benefit for people to be able to crowdfund for causes they care about, such as medical or financial emergencies.

But as we’ve seen, particularly in the past two years, there’s another possible use of the service. That is to reward or provide “legal services” for people who feature prominently in some of the biggest political battles between Republicans and Democrats.

Former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe are two of the recipients of this new boon. Despite the fact that both were found to have acted improperly and that they were well-paid officials, they each got hundreds of thousands of dollars from folks on the left because they were viewed as being against President Donald Trump or his agenda. Strzok ended with $452,248 and McCabe with $566,836.

Christine Blasey Ford was another one, whose GFM said that she had to provide for security in the face of death threats. There were two main Ford-connected accounts, one that raised $647,610 and another, run by a Georgetown law professor which made $209,982.

Ford announced in a note on her main account in November of last year that any unused funds for her security would be donated to organizations which supported trauma survivors. She said that she would be posting on the GFM page when she’d selected the organizations where the funds can best be used. There is however no further note on that page. The other GFM account makes no mention of anyone getting any money other than Ford.

Now, in the latest political drama surrounding the whistleblower complaint filed by a member of the intelligence community, the whistleblower already has a GoFundMe to raise money for legal expenses. Who could have guessed?

The GFM was started by the whistleblower’s attorneys and money raised would go toward legal fees, although the lawyers have not charged the person anything so far. Money will also be spent on such things as additional expenses and such things as travel.

The GFM, which was started two days ago, is now already over $140,000.

This concept of crowdfunding raises a new and rather troubling specter – that someone in the future could tailor his actions or statements to make that money or the account might be used as a way of paying people off for serving a political agenda. There is no evidence that the whistleblower has done that.

However, it’s easy to see how someone else could. As if the political arena wasn’t already supercharged enough.

Nothing Remains of This Know-Nothing Democrat but Hair, Teeth, and Eyeballs After Thomas Homan Gets Done

File – In this Dec. 5, 2017 file photo, then Acting Director for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan takes a question from a reporter at a Department of Homeland Security news conference in Washington. A federal immigration official says about 800 people living in Northern California were able to avoid arrest because of a warning by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. Homan, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement chief, told “Fox and Friends” Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018, that what Schaaf did was “no better than a gang lookout yelling ‘police’ when a police cruiser comes in the neighborhood.” (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik, File)

One of the unsung heroes in the fight over border security is former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan. The guy is not only an authority of immigration policy and the nuts-and-bolts of how all the components of the immigration system works, he has damned little patience for idiots or stooges which means he and House Democrats and their staffs do not have a great relationship.

He probably received the most attention for an encounter he had with the “Squad” leader and general twit, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. (Read my AOC Suffers Third Degree Burns Over 90% Of Her Butt After This Encounter With Former Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan for details.)

Homan was back on the Hill yesterday at a hearing on detention policy before the House Immigration and Citizenship Subcommittee. Compared to the goat-rope about the so-called whisleblower complaint, this was an undercard match, but it provided a great deal of amusement on its own.

This was the view from the left

This is how Americans viewed the carnage

Here is Townhall colleague Leah Barkoukis

During a House Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship hearing on “The Expansion and Troubling Use of ICE Detention,” Homan and [Washington Democrat Pramila] Jayapal, the vice chairwoman, got into a shouting match, which started after she brought up reallocating funds to go towards more detention beds.

“I’d like to remind you, under the Obama administration, we did that most of the years he was president. We moved money around DHS — it’s called reprogramming. We did that under the Obama administration, and I don’t remember any hearings on that,” Homan said, reminding her that during the border surge under Obama Congress was quick to give the money needed.

“I didn’t like it under the Obama administration either,” she replied.

At another point, Homan explained why there’s such a crisis at the border, placing the blame on Democrats in Congress.

“Look, you want to know why there’s 50,000 people in detention? You want to know why there are a million illegal entries into the United States? You want to know why we have these issues? Because you have failed to secure the border,” Homan said. “You guys failed to work with this president to close the three loopholes we’ve asked for two years to close.”

Jayapal interrupted to cut him off because his time was up, but he continued nonetheless.

“I’ve asked you politely to let me go beyond my time, and you let other people go beyond their time, but not to Tom Homan!” he fired back.

Jayapal slammed her gavel down to quiet a frustrated Homan, who exclaimed, “This is a circus.”

The situation escalated from there, with Jayapal demanding that he “respect the chair’s authority.”

When he started to respond, she once again began banging her gavel.

“Mr. Homan!” she yelled.

“You work for me!” he shot back. “I’m a taxpayer. I’m a taxpayer, you work for me.”

One thing we’re seeing under Trump are more and more executive branch officers willing to call out members of Congress on their own actions and duplicity. Instead of meekly sitting there and being abused, there is a realization that they are members of a different branch of government and they owe no obeisance to quasi-literates who often can’t be bothered to even master the slightest bit of knowledge about the agencies and programs they are supposed to be overseeing. In the long run, this is good. Before a member of Congress grandstands at the expense of a literal expert in the field, they should be required to either have their stuff together or take a verbal beat down. It will make for better members of Congress and more informative hearings. And watching the left squirt blood out of their whatever in rage over seeing their precious ones disrespected is definitely a big plus.
