Mueller’s Handling of the Obstruction Question Was Total Garbage

When AG Bill Barr first released his summary of the Mueller report some weeks ago there was one part that set hair ablaze all throughout the media. Namely, that Robert Mueller decided to not rule on the most important question before him, i.e. if Donald Trump obstructed justice with his criticism of the Russia investigation. Furthermore, Mueller proclaimed that he had not exonerated the President despite the fact that he was not recommending charges.

As I wrote at the time, this was a total cop-out and not his job as a prosecutor.

It was a total, damaging cop-out for him to include that line instead of just making the call in a normal prosecutorial fashion. That doesn’t mean he needed to say Trump was innocent because that’s not his job, but the proper response would have been to say that he lacks evidence of obstruction and he cannot recommend further action. By ambiguously claiming that he simply can’t make the call, instead leaving it to the DOJ, he’s set us up for another 18 months of mind-numbing stupidity that will end the same way the collusion narrative ended.

Today, Andrew C. McCarthy, far more versed on this topic than myself, opined on just how bad it was for Mueller to do what he did.

In his report, Mueller didn’t resolve the issue. If he had been satisfied that there was no obstruction crime, he said, he would have so found. He claimed he wasn’t satisfied. Yet he was also not convinced that there was sufficient proof to charge. Therefore, he made no decision, leaving it to Attorney General William Barr to find that there was no obstruction.

This is unbecoming behavior for a prosecutor and an outrageous shifting of the burden of proof: The constitutional right of every American to force the government to prove a crime has been committed, rather than to have to prove his or her own innocence.

As I said earlier today, this is why the DOJ has guidelines on not releasing findings under normal circumstances if no one is charged. It is not a fair use of our legal system to slander people who ultimately weren’t found to have committed a criminal act. Gut feelings don’t count. Robert Mueller had two choices in so far as doing his job in a professional way. Either present evidence of obstruction of justice and recommend charges or shut up about it. There should have been no choice number three where he lays out a bunch of insinuations and interpretations, while choosing to not actually do his job and rule on the evidence. That’s not what a prosecutor does.

McCarthy lays the case out for that as well.

This is exactly why prosecutors should never speak publicly about the evidence uncovered in an investigation of someone who isn’t charged. The obligation of the prosecutor is to render a judgment about whether there is enough proof to charge a crime. If there is, the prosecutor indicts; if there is not, the prosecutor remains silent.

If special counsel Mueller believed there was an obstruction offense, he should have had the courage of his convictions and recommended charging the president. Since he wasn’t convinced there was enough evidence to charge, he should have said he wasn’t recommending charges. Period.

Exactly.

Mueller clearly felt the President possibly did something wrong and did everything he could to steer public opinion in that direction with how he wrote the report, but when it came time to take the shot, he couldn’t pull the trigger. Why? Because he knows his “evidence” would have never stood up in a court of law. Mean tweets coupled with full cooperation does not equal obstruction. Firing Comey while allowing the investigation to not only continue, but expand, is clearly not obstruction. Did Trump do some things that could be described as borderline or not recommended? Perhaps, but borderline isn’t a legal standard. A prosecutor either makes a decision to charge or he doesn’t.

By punting on the issue, Mueller deprived Trump of the legal right to defend himself and instead let the issue become purely political. The justice system is not supposed to be used as a tool for innuendo, much less to feed media hysteria for years on end. It strains reason to think Mueller just didn’t realize that would happen.

This is why I’m not on the bandwagon of praising Robert Mueller just because he didn’t frame Trump. That’s a pretty low bar to meet. On the most important question in the entire report (because we’ve known for years the collusion narrative was false), he abdicated his responsibility and ensured the country would spend another two years paralyzed by this nonsense. He had the power and a duty to settle the issue by doing his job and making a decision, which was the only reason for his appointment in the first place. If he wasn’t willing to do that, he should have resigned long ago.

Acquitted by the Mueller Report, Trump Gets Bested at the Border by the Real Creator of Family Separation

On Thursday, a federal appeals court rejected the White House’s attempt to bar California from enforcing some of its sanctuary laws.

The Left coast ain’t a fan of saying “No” to illegal aliens, and it sure ain’t fond of cradling Donald Trump in the arms of Yes.

And thanks to the clap of a gavel, the West can keep hugging defiance, baby!

That’s right, folks: When it comes to remaining a haven for those here who purportedly aren’t allowed to be, the left-wing 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — partly responsible for family separation at the border (see here and here) — sided with a lower court: the Justice Department’s complaint that Cali’s making a fool of federal jurisdiction by simply doing what it wants is a non-starter.

The home of Hollywood will continue to extend a middle finger to the Trump White House, and that’s that.

At least until we see an appeal. Which is likely.

There does remain a question, so far as I’m concerned: How much is California’s resistance about devotion to left-wing anti-immigration policy (which is the proper label, given that they are eschewing immigration for illegal entry) vs. a simple desire to do the opposite of whatever Trump says?

Whatever the answer, if you’re sneakin’ ‘cross the U.S./Mexico line, the Golden State is a great place to be. Well — except for San Francisco: It’s stickin’ to its stanctuary laws, and — no matter where you’re from — that stinks (here).

Babylon Bee Wins Again: CNN Says Mueller Report Was Ordained by God to ‘Test Our Unshakeable Faith in Collusion’

Westlake Legal Group don-lemon-oh-distorted-SCREENSHOT Babylon Bee Wins Again: CNN Says Mueller Report Was Ordained by God to ‘Test Our Unshakeable Faith in Collusion’ white house washington D.C. Uncategorized religion mueller probe Mueller Investigation media bias Front Page Stories FBI donald trump Department of Justice democrats CNN bill barr babylone bee Anderson Cooper Allow Media Exception

 

 

A political party paradigm is “This happened; now how do we spin it?”

Since the 2016 election ramp-up, that mode of operation has applied equally to the mainstream media.

Hence, what once was an organization disseminating objective information has fully become a political party.

Or part of one: Are our major parties now Republican, Democrat, and Media, or is the press simply a part of the DNC?

Either way, news is dead.

But faith isn’t — and the Babylon Bee hit a homerun Thursday with a fantastic article: “CNN: ‘God Allowed The Mueller Report To Test Our Unshakable Faith In Collusion.’”

It must be so — just see here, here, and here.

The BB summarizes thusly:

Anchors at CNN headquarters have made a bold statement of unwavering faith after the Mueller Report revealed no actual evidence that Trump colluded with Russia. “We believe in collusion with all our hearts and will never let the world’s teachings get in the way of that,” said Jim Acosta while mumbling mantras quietly in a room misty with burning incense.

The piece finds Anderson Cooper revealing that God permitted the report in order “to test our unshakable faith in what we know to be true.”

That’s precisely the current state of the MSM. While their edict is correctly “Research and report without opinion,” they prefer “Designate desired conclusion, say whatever necessary — accurate or not — to support it.”

The Bee reports a hilarious CNN statement of faith:

We believe the true Mueller Report, regardless of the one released by men.

We believe that there is collusion, eternally existent in the person of Trump and the country of Russia.

We believe in the infallibility of the media, sinless, miraculous. We will redeem humankind.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, collusion is absolutely essential.

We believe in the collusion of Trump and Russia. All statements and evidence that purports to contradict that truth are lies of the Dark Lord.

Amen.

Alex

‘Only Trump Uses That Term’ — The Media is Redefining The Mueller Investigation in Real Time

Westlake Legal Group CNN-Breakdown ‘Only Trump Uses That Term’ — The Media is Redefining The Mueller Investigation in Real Time Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

Watching the stammering, straining, struggling dialogue on the news nets today in responding to having the full Robert Mueller investigation report is all the evidence needed that our contemporary media complex is incapable of objective news reporting. CNN, by way of example, has dispatched a full 9 person panel today to cover the release. That all nine were in chorus in looking into this for ANY proof of wrongdoing by President Trump is of little surprise.

MSNBC also trotted out its revolving door of experts, telling us the important details are those not found in the report. (A notable absence has been the fully discredited John Brennan).One guest provided the most audacious reinterpretation of events. In taking gaslighting to new depths legal expert Neal Katyal insists that only one person has ever used the term “collusion”.

“Only Trump uses that term”. You heard him, trying to claim that for the past two and a half years only the President has used that term. That comes as a sure surprise, especially considering this is a rather easily researched claim. Matt Wolking wasted little time rebutting this statement — he only had to look into the Mueller report for context: “the term has frequently been invoked in public reporting about the investigation,” says Mueller’s document.

Over on CNN Wolf Blitzer, holding up a binder of the printed out report, declared to the cameras, “We’re going through this very, very thoroughly.” That statement is more revealing than he intended because if the report itself had the ironclad proof of collusion and/or obstruction of justice there would not be a need to filter through the hundreds of pages to look for something objectionable. Noteworthy too is that the networks had little-to-no voices of differing interpretations. All were delving deeply to find their own segments to find proof of…something.

Chuck Todd seems strained to keep facts straight in this maelstrom of data that has been dumped, and dampened expectations. He puts out an old claim that has been long proven been false, but a need to revert is somewhat understandable.

Uh, “hacked, Chuck? No, that never took place. As for those cheering, Bill Barr this morning declared that Americans should be cheering that it has been proven that no cooperation with a foreign power to deride our election took place. The press, all the while, is cheering for some proof of nefarious behavior to emerge. Put those pom-poms away, Chuck – it’s unseemly.

The chyron left on the screen at CNN reads that Mueller was “unable to conclude that no criminal conduct occurred”. the This is to be interpreted that Mueller was unable to disprove a negative, so there can be that glimmer of hope. Not being explained by this glut of experts is that after two years nothing conclusive was found. That despite the fact Mueller requested an expansion of the scope of his investigation nothing tangible is found. And not one is even mentioning that the original thrust to look into collusion is completely brushed aside.

Panelist Jeffrey Toobin found his personal diamond in the exoneration. He leaned entirely on one sentence — in the hundreds of pages following years of investigations, hundreds of warrants, and thousands of subpoenas there was one sentence that had him holding out hope. In it, Mueller simply declared that Congress still retained the ability to impeach to explore possible obstruction. This is hardly revelatory, given that is a constitutional authority, and that Democrats have been bleating about impeachment for years already.

Yet these hopes ignore the core truth: if obstruction is such a slam dunk then it would have been declared in the report. Mueller has simply left enough of a window open for it to be explored by a zealot-driven political hunt. As today’s coverage has shown the zealotry is all set to race forward with their narrative.

At some point in life, you’ve no doubt encountered it. You’d most likely love very much to live without it. You may have had a relationship where you put up with a ton of it. And you probably know some people who are full of it (like here, here, and here).

I’m talking about a substance that’s the new West Coast tumbleweed.

Move over, Rice-A-Roni; turds are the new San Francisco treat.

Thanks to a permissive attitude toward vagrancy in the land of the Golden Gate, homeless is the new residency and outside is the new toilet.

The city’s employed a Poop Patrol — great job, by the way.

“So, handsome, what do you do for a living?”

“Well, I’ve got my hand in a few things. Mostly, I’m in the business of human-feces shoveling. Wanna go out sometime? I couldn’t help but notice you’re wearing sandals; I’m a good person to paint the town with — I know the areas where you’re least likely to get sh** between your toes.”

Business is booming: Since 2011, 118,352 steaming mounds of San Fran lower-intestinal loveliness have been reported to the authorities.

For your benefit, the data company Open the Books has created an interactive map of every place piles have been dropped — each is marked by a brown pin.

David Webb Gets It Right On Refugees-It’s About Economics Not Emotion

Westlake Legal Group CD0D8FA7-D82D-41B6-89E5-B5314DBB5193 David Webb Gets It Right On Refugees-It’s About Economics Not Emotion Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story
David Webb at CPAC

During his final segment yesterday (April 16) David Webb hit the nail right smack on the head during a back and forth with his guest, Jenny Yang, Senior Vice President for Advocacy & Policy, World Relief. World Relief is a church based charity organization that (from their website).

World Relief empowers the local church to serve the most vulnerable.

We partner with churches and communities around the world to provide vital programs and create lasting change

Ms. Yang herself, has a very impressive resume which can also be seen on the World Relief Leadership page.

Ms. Yang espouses what at first glance, seemes to be a reasonable position—a position common to many faith based charitable organizations who follow the Biblical, personal mandate to “Welcome the Stranger.” She spoke of how her organization worked within the laws of the United States to help refugees. In most instances they attempt to place these refugees with friends or family already living here and who could support them until they could find a job and support themselves.

In doing so, World Relief and Ms. Yang err by essentially commingling personal wealth and responsibilities covered by Christ’s teachings, with responsibilities of the public at large. I personally believe is noble to offer your own home, food and other things that you own to a stranger in need. I fail to see any nobility however, in forcing your neighbor to do so, either directly or via taxpayer funded services—or even more indirectly but still bad, distorting the job market by depressing wages and/or increasing American unemployment, especially at the margins.

Webb was blunt, “I don’t care about the emotion. I care about the economics.” He went on to explain that each and every job that for whatever reason, legal & moral or illegal & immoral, taken by an immigrant, is one job lost to an American. He is dead right. It’s a one for one swap when an Alien, legal, illegal or refugee takes a job from an American citizen.

Unfortunately due to time constraints (Mr Webb had to leave early for an event at the White House) Mr. Webb & Ms. Yang were unable to dive deeper into the details. Webb got a good start by positing a one for one swap in the job pool—Alien for American. Here’s the part I would hope they would have gotten to given more time.

The number of aliens we can allow in the U.S. without damaging our job market and economy and/or overloading our social safety net, is limited. That number does not change based on the status of the applicant. This is where politicians love to play the shell game with terms in order to hide the actual truth, like they do when they conflate wealth and income when discussing tax rates.

Every year, the United States legally admits several classes of aliens based on skill sets, relatives (chain migration) and a lottery system. That total number is (allegedly) based on the number of aliens our economy needs, can support and (again, allegedly) does no harm to the Americans and legal immigrants already here.

The political, administrative and business establishments are deliberately failing to account for illegal aliens and refugee applicants at our southern border. If we were doing this properly (we wouldn’t be admitting “refugees” from the South in the first place) for each border jumper or “refugee” applicant, we would decrement the number of “legal” immigrants for that year. (Full disclosure: To my knowledge, David Webb has not advocated for this.)

Of course if we tried this, the left would be up in arms. Legal suits and injunctions from the Ninth Circuit would fly. However, much like President Trump’s recent “threat” to send “refugee” candidates to sanctuary cities to await their court dates, this could have the effect of getting a real conversation going—a real conversation based on facts and demonstrated consequences of an unregulated flow of aliens into the U.S. economy. I mean, if a well known leftist like Cher can tweet:

Westlake Legal Group BE498762-90DA-407E-B681-B7619AC5E11E-620x348 David Webb Gets It Right On Refugees-It’s About Economics Not Emotion Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More?”

then we have a good shot at having this conversation. Once the leftists lose Cher on a particular issue, it’s pretty apparent that their position is crumbling on that same issue.

David Webb is on Sirius 125 M-F 9:00-12:00 AM. Give him a listen. He has a great knack for boiling down issues to their essentials.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell launched his 2020 re-election campaign today with a video touting his leadership in pushing two Supreme Court nominees through the confirmation process, getting the Trump Tax Cut package through the Senate – and preventing former President Barack Obama from filling the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Antonin Scalia.

McConnell, who’s been mocked by unfunny-man Jon Stewart as resembling a turtle, was dubbed “Cocaine Mitch” by a West Virginia Senate candidate, Don Blankenship, in 2018. After Blankenship’s loss, McConnell and his supporters embraced the nickname.

McConnell’s team didn’t stop with the video. They changed the 404 page on his campaign website, Team Mitch, to show a donation link superimposed over a picture of Obama’s failed nominee, Merrick Garland, at the White House with Joe Biden and Barack Obama.

In light of the devastating fire which overtook the famed Notre Dame Cathedral Monday, ISIS is celebrating.

In fact, the Islamic terrorist group referred to the destruction — which took place, it should be noted, during Holy Week — as God’s “retribution and punishment.”

Such was stated by the organization on a poster acquired by the Daily Mail. In Arabic letters, a photo of the inferno was captioned with “Have a good day.”

In addition:

“Its construction began in the year 1163 and ended in 1345. It’s time to say goodbye to your oratory polytheism.”

It was a fierce sendoff — quelling the blaze was a near-impossible task:

Experts say firefighters were left with devastatingly few options to save a structure that’s more than 850 years old, built with heavy timber construction and soaring open spaces, and lacking sophisticated fire-protection systems.

Did terrorism have anything to do with the destruction?

Not likely. As reported by The Epoch Times:

Officials are currently treating the cause of the Paris fire as accidental.  The Paris prosecutor’s office has ruled out arson and possible terror-related motives.

ISIS hasn’t claimed responsibility, but they do seem giddy that an artful, 856-year-old place of Christian worship — visited by millions annually — has met its end.

But it isn’t really the end:

French President Emmanuel Macron treated the fire as a national emergency, rushing to the scene and cancelling a previously scheduled televised address meant to address France’s yellow vest crisis.

‘The worst has been avoided, although the battle is not yet totally won,’ the president said, adding that he would launch a national funding campaign on Tuesday and call on the world’s ‘greatest talents’ to help rebuild the monument.

Guess God had a change of heart — something ISIS is unlikely to do.

Once eccentric New York billionaire Donald Trump — a favorite media spectacle and rap music’s wealth reference of choice — added an “R” to his name and became a presidential contender, the Left decided he was a wholly different man. In fact, they continuously insisted, he was as great a failure at business as he was a champion of success as Klan leader.

He wasn’t a real estate mogul; to the contrary, he was merely a reality TV star. Snooki from Jersey Shore? Puck from The Real World, Season 1? Donald Trump? All the same.

You don’t want Honey Boo Boo running the country, do you?

But he was much worse than just a joke: He was a fanged, drooling Son of Satan, out to murder all people and destroy all things (here). He was in cahoots with Putin to rule the world, Dr. Evil-style (here). He was a yellow-haired madman who’s puffy coif hid his 666.

Despite the idiocy of the assertion, it’s shown no sign of stopping. It’s absurd; it’s outrageous; and it’s the new school of politics.

And it’s perfectly illustrated by a Saturday Night Live sketch from 1986, lampooning then-President Ronald Reagan.

Reagan was an ol’ softie — he had a grandfatherly demeanor and wrote constant love letters to his wife (For more, get the phenomenal book I Love You, Ronnie; if you want to truly discover the 40th president of the United States, you’ll find him there).

SNL spoofed Reagan in a lighthearted way; it didn’t feel mean. The program’s current political skewering of Trump — by contrast — is so ugly, it’s hard to watch. It’s not so much comedy as rage against the 2016 election.

But I guess they figure that rage is more than justified; after all, we elected Lucifer. And the SNL skit nails what they believe Beelzebub’s doing.

Enjoy.

According the Daily Mail, hoax-haunted Jussie Smollett has lost a lead role in the Broadway show Take Me Out.

There’s a trail o’ stink followin’ him.

Jussie was in the running for the part, but the outlet confirmed he’s been nixed from consideration.

Charges against the actor were recently dropped, but that did little to make things hunky dory (here, here, here, and here). The end to his prosecution only served to raise a whole buncha questions.

One question that’s no longer hovering is, “Will Jussie star in the play?”

The answer:



From the Daily Mail:

“Everything was set to go and the producers were planning to announce that Jussie and Zachary Quinto were starring in the play last month,” said one Broadway insider.

“Everyone was so supportive after the attack and then suddenly, everything shifted.”

It was all on account of a shock:

Another source close to the production reiterated this, and said that the events of the last few months have left them in shock.

And it was a great missed opportunity:

“Here is a kid who is on a hit television show, has made a name for himself, and gets the chance of a lifetime,” said that source.

“He would have come off the sixth season of Empire and kicked off the next leg of his career with a role on Broadway. And not just that, the lead role in one of the best plays of the century in his Broadway debut.”

That source then added: “Why on earth would someone throw that all away.”

It’s a good question.

And the impact of his decisions continues.

Jussie had appeared to be all in. But in the end, the Broadway show followed the edict of its title: They Took Him Out.
