Why Did Smart Bill Clinton Smartly Meet With Loretta Lynch? The July #Hillary2016 #Trump2016 State Of Play

Update: Janet Reno? Really???

Attorney general won’t recuse herself in Clinton email case

Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Friday that she planned to take a step back in the case involving the handling of sensitive information stored on Hillary Clinton’s personal email server but would not flat-out recuse herself.

Lynch said she still intended to review the case but expected to accept the recommendation of investigators and prosecutors at the FBI and Justice Department. [snip]

Lynch, who was traveling with her husband, said she’d spoken with Bill Clinton about their grandchildren, golf and former Attorney General Janet Reno. She described the meeting as social and unplanned.

Um, one of the big controversies of the Janet Reno Department of Justice was the use of special prosecutors. A special prosecutor appointed now would delay resolution of the Clinton controversies past election day. So, why and what was this discussion about? It wasn’t about grandbabies and the green green grass of golf. Janet Reno? Really???


Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch privately which has been universally denounced as entirely inappropriate. That meeting was even more inappropriate than when Bill used Monica Lewinsky as a humidor. Still, what Bill Clinton did was smart. It was necessary. It was very smart. Until it blew up like an exploding cigar. We explain below.

Our regular readers know we do not believe Barack Obama will ever allow Hillary Clinton to be his successor and heir and that Hillary Clinton’s campaign strategy is a “muddled message mess“. Even at this late date, in this July month of conventions to nominate candidates for both major parties, we believe we are entirely correct and the rest of the world is wrong. Hillary Clinton will not be the nominee of the Obama Dimocrat Party.

With the above in mind, consider why Bill Clinton met secretly with Attorney General and all around klutz and klown Loretta Lynch. Do you see why Bill Clinton did what he did?

Bill Clinton is a smart man. Bill Clinton knows a meeting with the Attorney General, even as Hillary Clinton is potentially under criminal investigation by the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice, is extremely inappropriate and dynamite if it ever became public. But for Bill Clinton is was the smart play. It was the necessary play. Why? Read our second paragraph again.

Why was the risk of getting caught in Loretta Lynch’s plane a worthwhile “smart” risk for Bill Clinton? Because Bill Clinton knows that Obama cannot be trusted. Bill Clinton knows that aside from the bluster that even if indicted Hillary Clinton would continue to run for president, an indictment would utterly destroy not only Hillary2016 but the entire Clinton Global Initiative as well.

Bill Clinton knows that the only chance, if Hillary Clinton is indicted or her top aides are indicted, is for the indictment to take place after the Democratic Party nomination. Once Hillary is the nominee she can fight to the death to remain the nominee. But an indictment before the Democratic Party convention in Philadelphia would mean immediate, unstoppable death to Hillary2016. So Bill Clinton had to find out.

Bill Clinton had to find out the state of play. Bill Clinton is desperate. Bill Clinton had to find out where Loretta Lynch’s loyalties lie. Is Loretta Lynch loyal to Bill Clinton the man who gave her a start? Or is Loretta Lynch loyal to the despicable Barack Obama? Bill Clinton had to know. Bill Clinton had to know now! Bill Clinton had to know before Saturday.

Bill Clinton had to know before Saturday, July 2 because it is rumored that Hillary Clinton will be interrogated by the F.B.I. on Saturday:

Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to meet Saturday with the FBI, a source close to the investigation into her private email server tells The Daily Caller.

The source went on to suggest the interview may take place at her Washington, D.C. home.

The bureau’s interview with the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is believed to be the final step in its investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information on Clinton’s private email server. [snip]

Clinton has no campaign events listed on her schedule which means that she will not be tailed by the usual pack of campaign reporters.

Bill Clinton made a calculation. Bill Clinton had to find out where Loretta Lynch’s loyalties lay well before Saturday’s Hillary “interview” with the F.B.I. It was a smart play if it wasn’t exposed. But it has become an exploding cigar tainting the former president and bringing into question the ‘golf and grandkids’ nature of the conversation:

‘No photos, no pictures, no cell phones.” According to Christopher Sign, an ABC network news anchor, the meeting was intended to be kept secret. Now that it is no longer secret, even if it was entirely gregarious Bill being polite, it is a big problem. What Bill Clinton thought was smart, turned out to be, in the light of day, dumb.

For Hillary2016 it was a knock on the head. And it might get a whole lot worse, especially during that Saturday interview. For Trump2016 it was another “homer” without need to even lift the bat.

  1. At his Western Conference speech today, Trump made fun about the whole talking about grandkids and golf excuse, saying that while he loves his grandkids and golf, he can’t really say more than a few nice words about them.

    Now that was damn FUNNY, Admin..
    Thanks for the naughty giggle.. Keep em’ comin’!

  3. Admin: good analysis

    If you notice Morris comment that Lynch’s recusal removed a safety net I am sure you thought to yourself there was never a safety net there, only a trap door.

    What I cannot figure out is, if his goal was to find out when the hammer would come down, why did he need a public meeting to do that?

    Adams claims this was done to send a signal to career members of the Justice Department who value their careers over the welfare of the country, if you decide to indict you will be sorry.

    My own information suggests that Bill and Hillary have got Obama in a pickle. They know he does not want her to be the nominee, and I fully expect the military industrial complex is clinging to him like stink on shit. But is what Hillary knows about him becomes public his ass is grass.

    Admin, I have got to believe that Bill received word from an insider what Obama’s plans are and Lynch walked right into it. Putting my own dislike of her aside, she is tone deaf politically, and the only reason she is in that job is because she is a black leftist out to get whitey, just like the rest of them.

  4. According to Christopher Sign, an ABC network news anchor, the meeting was intended to be kept secret.

    That is hard to believe. If it was to be kept secret, the public would not know about it.

    If the FBI wants to interview Hillary on Saturday, then her attorney David Kendal needs to develop a case of stomach flu on July 4, and postpone that interview until he is fully recovered–in about four weeks.

  5. Hillary has got a load of troubles. She had also best look at how Soros is scapegoating Merkel over his failed nutjob ideologies.

  6. This scandal is probably going to force the DOJ to indict her early before the convention just to try to avoid the appearance of impropriety IMHO. Do you suppose Obama deliberately leaked the meeting? He has the deviousness of Littlefinger in Game of Thrones.

  7. Assuming Hillary is indicted, the question is could the jackal in the Oval Office buy her silence and Bill’s silence with a promise to pardon. Knowing whom she is dealing with, she should make the deal with him, and after he has pardoned her, spill the beans on him.

  8. It’s interesting – it seems that the Aloha Snackbar bomber types usually planned to die in the “mission” – whether by taking the plane down, exploding a suicide vest, or whatever. But perhaps some of the French wanted to survive and get away, and in the Florida one, there’s some word that a couple were “supposed” to survive. In Florida and now Bangladesh, they’re taking hostages, maybe as a way to escape….? It just seems the pattern may be changing a bit. Or maybe the different cells are allowed some latitude in their plans…

  9. ABC News also has a source that confirms the “interview”:


    Hillary Clinton could be interviewed by the FBI in the coming days as part of an investigation into the former secretary of state and her staff’s use of private email to conduct official U.S. State Department business, according to a source familiar with the U.S. Department of Justice’s investigation.

    The Justice Department’s goal is to complete the investigation and make recommendations on whether charges should be filed before the two major party conventions take place toward the latter half of July, the source said.

    Officials want ample time to review Clinton’s interview and compare it to everything they have discovered in the months-long investigations, according to the source.

  10. The Justice Department’s goal is to complete the investigation and make recommendations on whether charges should be filed before the two major party conventions take place toward the latter half of July, the source said.
    Then the strategy should be to delay the interview so they cannot complete that process prior to the convention.

    In spite of all of my cynicism I had some hopes for the FBI. I always lecture my civilian friends and family about “normalcy bias.” Seems I suffer from it as much as anyone.

    There is a much deeper and unfortunate story here. The AG detail is not Secret Service, it is composed of the same FBI Agent detail that protects FBI Director James Comey. The AG’s detail and the Director’s detail all work out of the same staging area in the basement of FBIHQ in DC. An Agent that protects AG Lynch one day can be protecting Comey the next. They constantly cross-pollinate. It is essentially the same detail.

    The AG’s Office does not have it’s own aircraft. When the AG needs to travel somewhere the AG’s office contacts the FBI and requests use of the FBI G-5. This request is de-conflicted at Comey’s level to make sure that Comey or other FBI entities aren’t using it on those dates. Lynch flew to Phoenix on the FBI G-5, which was flown by FBI Agent pilots and was accompanied by Comey’s FBI Agent detail.

    Protective detail work is extremely meticulous. At least one week prior to the AG’s visit to Phoenix, FBI Agents from Lynch’s assigned detail would have travelled to Phoenix to conduct a site-survey. The entire FBI SWAT Team of the Phoenix FBI field office would have been dispatched to assist, as per the orders of the Phoenix SAC, who would have been read-in on every detail of the visit and would have been in constant contact with FBIHQ in order to coordinate the operation.

    Tasks completed would have included:

    de-conflict with TSA/local airport security/airport control tower at the airport for a remote/secure location to park the AG’s plane where the FBI suburbans with detail could establish an appropriate perimeter in order to secure AG Lynch’s arrival.

    Coordinate with Phoenix PD for motorcycle police escort to/from airport to hotel in order to bypass traffic jams etc. (hotel rooms reserved for AG/staff/fbi detail, etc.). Reconnoiter and finalize primary/alt routes to and from airport/hotel with planned hard-points along each route in case of attack, etc. Literally everything is planned down to the minute.

    Same planning process would have occurred with routes to and from hotel to Phoenix FBI Field Office, USAO’s office and any other planned locations for the AG to visit.

    The FBI G-5 doesn’t just taxi down the tarmac and “bump into” a Secret Service-protected jet carrying Bill Clinton. This meeting necessarily involved extensive coordination between the two Agencies.

    Imagine two private jets, two fleets of black Suburbans. Both protected by a small army of men in suits, wearing earpieces, carrying MP-7s and 416s. Meeting at random on the tarmac of the Phoenix Airport. Unaware of each other’s presence until the jets pull side by side and the doors open and the men in suits appear on both sides. Scenario for an epic friendly-fire incident.

    In other words, absolutely no way this meeting happened without extensive coordination between the FBI protective detail and Secret Service. Absolutely no way Comey didn’t know Lynch was meeting with Clinton. Comey and FBI Executive Management’s fingerprints are all over thi

  12. … and a rebuttal comment


    When I was assigned to AG Ashcroft’s protective detail as a Special Deputy U.S. Marshal protecting his residence(working hand-in-hand with his detail FBI agents, who moved with him while I remained at the residence) for 2 1/2 years during 2002-2005, things were not as you describe. The FBI agents protecting him were assigned to him exclusively, and did not “cross-pollinate” as you say, with the FBI director’s detail. Also, they operated primarily out of their office on the 2nd floor of “Main Justice,” across Penn. Ave. from FBI HQ — not from the FBI HQ basement as you say. So unless things have changed, I wonder about your info. Ashcroft did have a much higher profile/assessed threat than subsequent AGs, so that could explain the differences in your description. Specifically, for example when Gonzales took over after Ashcroft resigned, fewer resources/taskings were assigned for his protection. I can see how over time, things may have been folded into somewhat joined detail operations.

    Otherwise, everything you described is more or less accurate operationally and logistically(except for your absurd “friendly fire” scenario, lol — just wouldn’t happen), although plans and situations can change on the fly, and sometimes the detail just adjusts and makes do with hasty thumbnail measures to the extent possible.

  13. All this speculation of why Bill met Loretta on a plane. To warn her stupid ass off. She probably has been playing both sides against the middle. Being briefed in DOJ and passing it on to the White House AND the Clintons. Maybe she stopped with the Clinton briefing and Bill had to do a “remember me and your career?” you dumb nobody. Barky will soon be in Argentina so you wanna follow him there? Who knows. It is pressure points being applied and it happens all the time just not on government secret airplanes on tarmacs. But I still admire Bill’s verve and “I’ll do it my damn self” Arkansas attitude. Was it wrong? Of course but what isn’t now days?

  14. The elites, or smarties (they tell us this over and over with no evidence) as I think of them, are realizing slowly that they have “pissed in the well” so to speak. Polling has over the decades become not just a tool but a strategic weapon used in politics and control of populations. All manner of manipulation, cherry-picking, rigging and “pushing” is used especially in and by governments. This is why the PR, messaging specialists, cretinous pollsters, media sponsorship spending BIG money, and “analysts” such as tea reading Nate Silver types (who accidentally took a pre-statistics course for Sociology 203 thus making his career!) are drug out to show their possum ugly faces to “prognosticate” polling. Agit-prop. I’v seen better fake “production charts” for proposed oil fields from boiler room scammers in Singapore. The quality of “fake” is deteriorating rapidly with this set of smarties.

    It is now apparent what happened in the UK. It happened last year also but the “smarties” were too smart-stupid to take note of it. The public is lying. They lie to pollsters. They lie to journalists. They lie to their stupid young hysterical proggy family members and acquaintances who claim they don’t know anyone who would vote THAT way. Of course you know them but they lie to you so they don’t have to listen to your ignorant crap you ninny and have a “cutting” episode in their bathroom they have to clean up. And exactly why do they owe you anything including the truth. You’ll get it soon enough.

    Pissing in the well. Information is money and power. Without it you got bupkis. Polling is important in marketing. But business polling can be backed up by sales figures, walking around, etc. Not so for politics. The last election is a year or more ago so that is old data. Old data and fake data is useless in a big realignment or preference cascade. Would customers or prospective buyers give information if they KNOW that information will be used to lie to them or to dehumanize, libel or put them in jail for THINKING THE WRONG THING. That is now going on in the UK with “racist” thought or speech crimes. It is positively Stalin-esque. They beat back dissent and into silence except for the ballot box. Oh dear. Now the public are pissing back.

    Since the pollsters can’t get a truthful or open answers out of most people they got no idea how to construct the agit-prop marketing spin. So they went full throttle fear, end of civilization (Muslim hordes is civilization?) and prosperity (what prosperity people asked?), and other silly arguments which sounded like threats. Hell they were threats. Only the young, inexperienced and mentally challenged (some academic woman took her shirt off in a staff meeting to show her displeasure over Brexit vote, if that isn’t a cry for mental help what is or maybe she just needs a date?) believed them. Because they can’t get accurate feedback they couldn’t tell if was working so they went whole hog and the cycle continued until it blew up in their faces. The prostitutes of the public opinion industry (including the media and savants such as Silver) killed off their own industry. Cause and effect. Funny how the “smarties” are carefully taught to ignore that.

    So now the pollsters can’t measure an international preference cascade of anti-globalism just when their clients need it most. People threatened with ruination for being “racist” and Neanderthals will lie. The politicians and government officials will have to go out and talk to (angry hostile) people face to face if they want real information which most of them don’t. They pissed in the well and they may never clean it up. It also makes ballot rigging harder, as seen in Austria, because they can’t estimate how many to rig and turns into a shit-show again by alleged smarties. How about that bot ruining the Remainers petition? LOL. Those globalists CANNOT catch a break. Look at that old freak Soros trying to blame Merkel. Management and government by walking around (a Trump specialty) is making a comeback. Lucky Trump.

  15. Harry Dent sent out an interesting news letter regarding the EU and it’s demise. He says that Italy’s defaults and the losses being incurred by banks like the German Deutsche Bank are way bigger problems for them than Brexit. The Brits were smart to disengage. He is saying that major collapse is bearing down on us. I think he is right.

    Hold on to your assets and assume crash position.

    Trump is riding this wave and all we can hope is that he comes out on top and can pull us with him.

    Well, Rush disagrees with Morris. He is 100% convinced that we are being set up, the democrat party has corrupted all our institutions, and no indictment will issue

    Duh. HRC will never be indicted b/c she has too much shit on the Kenyan.

  18. Obama says that this and other terrorist acts in Orlando, San Bernardino, Paris, Brussels and Istanbul have absolutely, positively, most assuredly have nothing to do with Islam. Move on, people, nothing to see.

    DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — The hostages were given a test: recite verses from the Quran, or be punished, according to a witness. Those who passed were allowed to eat. Those who failed were slain.



    the story I got a moment ago from a trusted source with inside information is that this entire meeting had nothing to do with determining who Lynch was loyal to, but was instead a carefully orchestrated move by Bill to tell Lynch we (not Obama) own you. This meeting was not something worked out between the parties. This was a brazen act–an ambush by Bill, and through a third party he tipped off the media to place the hapless Lynch on the hot seat. He told Lynch some things they have on her, and then he gave her a list of a couple names of career prosecutors in the Justice Department one of whom is gay but in the closet and the other is a pedophile. The list also included names in the FBI. The goal is to i) prevent the FBI from recommending indictment, ii) prevent the Justice Department from proceeding, and/or iii) delay the indictment until after she becomes the nominee. The source of some of this is Larry Nichols, among others. The other thing that ties into this that concerns Nichols is the fact that Lynch is promising to prosecute people for hate speech, so the plan there is to indict people who talk about this. The targets of that effort will be Breitbart, Infowars and/or Drudge. Coincidentally, before he died, that Obama was coming after him this year. This is a redux of what they did with the IRS scandal, wherein they shut down the voice of the Tea Party, with no consequences to Learner.

  20. Oh my God!

    Obama’s brave TSA ever vigilant to protect us from tiny 17 year old girls with brain cancer who is being treated at St. Jude, has lost sight in one eye, and has a hard time walking and became confused due to her condition when she passed through security, so they threw her to the ground and cracked her skull.

    Nice work Barkey—you big media beloved messiah< Fore!! How's the handicap dickhead?

    And to hell with all you cultists still riding around with your Obama bumper stickers on your car. You-are-the-enemy.


  21. If ever these words were deserved, Rest In Peace Elie Wiesel:


    Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and renowned Holocaust survivor, dies at 87

    Author and human rights activist made perpetuating the memory of the Shoah his life’s work.

    Holocaust survivor, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, prolific author and outspoken activist Elie Wiesel died Saturday at the age of 87. Wiesel was perhaps best known for his major role in promoting Holocaust education, and for perpetuating the memory of the Holocaust in the post-World War II era with his memoir “Night,” based on his experience as a teenager in the Auschwitz concentration camp.

    Eliezer “Elie” Wiesel was born on September 30, 1928 in the Romanian town of Sighet, to Sarah and Shlomo Wiesel. His maternal grandfather, Dodye Feig, was a member of the Vishnitz Hasidic sect; his strong influence over Wiesel was seen later in some of his writings. Wiesel received a traditional religious education while growing up in Sighet; many years later, in 2002, he returned to his hometown to dedicate the Elie Weisel Memorial House at the site of his childhood home.

    The Wiesel family’s lives were seriously disrupted in 1940, when Hungary annexed Sighet and all the Jews in town were forced to move into one of two ghettoes. In May 1944, the Nazis, with Hungary’s agreement, deported the Jewish community of Sighet to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. The teenage Wiesel was sent with his father Shlomo to the Buna Werke labor camp, a sub-camp of Auschwitz III-Monowitz, where they were forced to work for eight months before being transferred to a series of other concentration camps near the war’s end.

    The malnourished and dysentery-stricken Shlomo Wiesel died after receiving a beating from a German soldier on January 29, 1945, several weeks after he and Elie were forced-marched to the Buchenwald camp. Wiesel’s mother Sarah and younger sister Tzipora also perished in the Holocaust. He would later recount those and other events in his 1955 memoir “Night.” [snip]

    In April 2010, he took out advertisements in four major newspapers, criticizing the Obama administration for pressuring the Netanyahu government to halt construction in Jewish neighborhoods located across the Green Line in East Jerusalem. Wiesel repeated that tactic in 2013 when he took out a full-page ad in The New York Times calling on the U.S. administration to demand the total dismantling of the nuclear infrastructure in Iran because that country had called for Israel’s destruction.

    As the world descends into a new night of horror with Obama presiding, Wiesel will be missed.

  22. The rumors were true:


    The FBI interviewed Hillary Clinton on Saturday about her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, her campaign announced after the meeting, as federal investigators neared the end of the probe that has hung over her White House bid.

    Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, gave a voluntary interview for 3 ½ hours at FBI headquarters in Washington, her campaign said.

    “She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said. “Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview.”

    Spokespeople for the FBI and the Justice Department declined to comment Saturday.

    For Clinton, the interview indicates that the Justice Department’s yearlong probe is drawing to a close only four weeks before she is set to be formally nominated as the Democrats’ choice to succeed President Barack Obama.

  23. “For Clinton, the interview indicates that the Justice Department’s yearlong probe is drawing to a close only four weeks before she is set to be formally nominated as the Democrats’ choice to succeed President Barack Obama.”


    Looks like Obama’s plan to sandbag Hillary before the convention just blew up on the tarmac..

    Bill laughing all the way through Independence Day weekend. Checkmate!

  24. I am not sure. I think it’s 50/50 she get’s indicted before the convention. I agree, however, Bill had no choice. It is amazing how last week Trump was virtually written off, and now in a flash we see how easily Hillary had an awful week and Trump is narrowing the polls and ahead in some.

  25. So how reliable is this CNN report that Hillary will get off “Scott-free”?

    Within the next two weeks or so, the expectation is there will be an announcement of no charges being brought against Clinton so long as no evidence of wrongdoing emerges from her interview with the FBI, sources familiar with the investigation told CNN. CNN has previously reported no charges were expected to be brought against Clinton because the investigators had not found evidence to warrant charges, according to multiple law enforcement officials. A Democrat close to Clinton said Saturday the campaign believes the FBI will announce its decision before the conventions.


  26. Rip Elie Wiesel. A great man who experienced first hand man’s inhumanity to man, and then spent his entire life trying to make the world a better place.

    Looks like Bill’s intervention worked. We can all breath a big sigh of relief. The pedophile, the gay man in the closet, Lynch and Hillary are all safe.

    “Like I said, the system is totally rigged!”


    If this is true, then I do think Hillary will be the nominee, but she will pay a price for this in the general election. I doubt they can keep all the FBI agents quite over this. Tongues will be wagging. A lot.

    The only thing left to try and destroy of the Clinton’s is CGI.

    (CGI’s website)
    To date, members of the CGI community have made more than 3,500 commitments which have improved the lives of over 430 million people in more than 180 countries.

  29. The idea of appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the email scandal with a deadline of 10 years seems excellent to me. How about that vaunted Washington DC grey eminence, and Sherlock Holmes of political scandals, General Thomas Pickering. Remember him? He was upstanding public figure charged with the initial Benghazi investigation. He never interviewed Hillary or top officials. He did however claim he conducted and exhaustive investigation and concludes shit happens and nobody is to blame. He would be perfect for the role of special prosecutor. He is old enough to be dead in 10 years, so there will be no conclusion. Only problem is Tom Pickering whose profile resembles the Stone Henge is busy at the moment defending against claims of bribery and self dealing with regard to the Boeing company. Of course, if honest Tom is unavailable, why not his co-author of the Benghazi report, Admiral Mullen, the rule of the queens navee. He would be a fine default candidate.

  30. Pikering and Mullen typify the corruption which has reached epidemic proportions in Washington.

  31. These people must be Christians. Anyone else would ask for $100 million–not $100,000 in damages. And the TSA officials should be charged with a crime. Under Obama, this is how the federal bureaucracy operates. If this had happened to an illegal big media would be all over this screaming racism. The whole scenario is right out if Nazi Germany.

    Disabled girl spends night in jail after being bloodied by TSA agents
    Adan Salazar – JULY 1, 2016 1727 Comments
    TSA Sued For Beating Deaf, Partially Blind Teen Recovering from Brain Surgery
    A teen just released from brain surgery was beaten by TSA agents inside the Memphis Airport last year, a recent lawsuit alleges.

    The TSA is listed as a defendant in a suit accusing them of injuring a mentally disabled teen after she was unable to understand or comply with orders at a security checkpoint.
    Newly surfaced photos show the aftermath of the June 30, 2015 incident, in which agents roughed up 19-year-old Hannah Cohen leaving her bloodied and bruised.

    “They wanted to do further scanning; she was reluctant. She didn’t understand what they were about to do,” her mother Shirley Cohen told WREG.
    The lawsuit claims before Hannah had brain tumor surgery at St. Jude’s hospital, she already had “a physical and mental impairment that substantially limit one or more of her life activities.”
    “More particularly,” the lawsuit continues, “[Hannah] has damage from radiation and removal of a brain tumor that substantially limits her ability to speak, walk, stand, see, hear, care for herself, learn and work, think, concentrate, and interact with others.”
    “This substantial limitation is obvious upon sight and was obvious” on the day of the incident, the lawsuit filed in US District Court states.
    “She’s trying to get away from them,” Hannah’s mother described, “but in the next instant, one of them had her down on the ground and hit her head on the floor. And I looked and there’s blood everywhere.”
    All the while Shirley was kept from being able to help her daughter, causing her “extreme emotional injury as she watched the personnel assault her daughter,” according to court documents obtained by Infowars.
    The Memphis International Airport Police Department is also included as a defendant in the suit for “arresting her for no cause.”
    “Hannah was arrested, booked and on the night she should have been celebrating the end of her treatment, she was locked up in Jail East,” reports WREG.
    “Here we were with nowhere to go, not even a toothbrush, our bags had gone to Chattanooga,” Shirley said.
    TSA did not comment on the case, but referred travelers with special accommodations to call their TSA Cares hotline.
    The Cohens’ are asking for $100,000 in damages.

  32. This whole decision to not indict is so typical. A Republican I knew sat on the 911 Commission. He told me the whole purpose was to make sure neither Republicans or Democrats were blamed. Blackmail is coin of the realm in Washington DC which is why we must curtail their power.

  33. Governor “Slick” Rick Scott sandbagged too many of Florida’s environmental protections and now we are having a wicked toxic algae bloom. Rubio has been hot on the problem, speaking out for all those high dollar homes with the mess washing

    A fitting job him.

  34. Hillary is a globalist, plan and simple..so they will be getting one of their own…so in effect, they really don’t care.

    Hi Shadow,

    Happy you are still reading here. I’ve been reading during the years I’ve been AWOL from the blog. I’ve been about life getting things done on my bucket list and hadn’t had the time to spare the emotional involvement that happens when you’re engaged with the blog.

    Anyway, like most of us here, I am sick and tired of the WH (BO) pulling strings changing the balance of a fair and square fight, like he did in 08′, stealing Hillary’s delegates to be the Democrat nominee. It as obvious as the nose on my face, Obama is out to completely destroy the Clinton’s and CGI in this electoral ‘grudge’ match to the death. The playing field HAD to be leveled and Bill in all his brilliance did that with a simple “Fait Accompli”. Which I’m sure detonated twin explosions to Valjar’s and Axelrod’s heads.

    Sad to say, I’m not in her corner this time around. But I can only hope, if Trump is elected, Hillary turns over all the evidence she has on him during her tenure as SOS and he gets whats coming to him as a {civilian} in the form of a federal indictment for High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    Best regards. Enjoy the wknd, Shadow- good hearing from you again..

  36. This article explains why western civilization is on the decline and shariah law is in the ascendant. Prior posts by Stefan Molynex, Camile Paglia and others have struck the same theme. Ditto with Norman Mailer in the 1950s. And, Plato made a similar observation over two thousand years ago. Granted, the challenges of settling a frontier are very different from the challenges of leading a decent life in today’s toxic political and business culture. But even war which is the last place where the martial arts are feted has been subject to the demands of this white house, for affirmative action for the gender confused, i.e. the transexual. Again, the problem with all this affirmative action crap. A number of great commanders in history were bisexual or homosexual, from Alexander the Great to Baron Von Stuben who trained the Continental Army. It is not the significant factor, because the important thing was that they could lead armies or train armies in times of crisis. But once affirmative action sticks its ugly nose under the tent, it becomes the only factor, and competence falls by the wayside.


  37. Admin: putting aside his Hillary hate, Michael Goodwin has got the carrot part of the incentive for the meeting about right. Its the stick aspect recounted above that is missing in his analysis. The I made you, I can break you, and many of your minions if you do not play ball. Just to be clear, I want Hillary to be the nominee, and when in Rome etc. The question for the American People is whether they support corruption, and while most of them say they do not, if the perceive that it benefits them in some marginal way, they have no problem with it. I first became aware of this in my dealings with Teamsters Local 295 at JFK airport which was run by a man who was the chaeuffer and button man for Louis Lepke who was the head of the Jewish half of Murder Incorporated, Albert Anastasia being the Italian half. The members of that Local, many of whom came from Ozone Park Queens, respected him and followed him, even though many of them were decent people with Italian Catholic uprbringings. If you wondered why they would tell you he delivers good contracts for me and my family and the rest of this is an just urban legend by journalists, and employers who want to keep the working class under their thumb.


  38. Hi Mrs Smith! Good to see you here and I understand the importance of taking time to work on your bucket list and life beyond politics.

    To be honest, I normally don’t read any more than part of Admin’s top post and can’t finish reading it any more than that. I do a quick glance over the blog every now and then, just testing the waters to see if there is anything beyond Trump.

    I came to this site for the same reason I left, to be around Hillary supporters. I am happy that most of us that left are on another site and still together.
    Believe me, it breaks my heart that Big Pink is now all in for Trump and not her.

    I do miss our discussions, Mrs. Smith…and I will come back to read the blog once in awhile to check in on you and a few others.

    Hope you and all here have a Happy Forth of July.

  39. As suggested above, I think Comey will be the fall guy. Apart from political pressure there are national security concerns in bringing an indictment, which I alluded to several days ago. In both cases, these are things he cannot talk about, therefore the decision to not indict–if that is indeed what happens, and at this point, it appears to be the case, then he will be the one left holding the bag. It will wreck his career, because he will be seen as violating his oath. Again, none of this is my concern. I want Hillary to be the nominee, so we have the confrontation the nation needs to have between sovereignty and globalism. If they get some good time Charlie in there as the nominee, critical thinking about that megapolitical issue, will go flacid, and big media will be able to obfuscate, and talk about likability.


  40. To,support hillary at this point is treasonous. ..
    And the big dog, he ended up a mongrel, just another thug with a southern drawl.

    Somehow they have stolen 300 million from people with promises to sell the American people out when she gets elected.

    Something to be proud of huh?

    And JB…I don’t believe anyone here, besides the drive byes, felt Trump was in “trouble “.

  41. gross.. just received a “Wish Barack a Happy Birthday” card from “MO”. Of course, she was asking for money, too.. it went right into the trash.

    Is it just me, or does it grate on anyone else’s nerves when MO says “Barack”? It is like nails on a chalkboard.

  42. There is not doubt that the Clinton’s are globalists. Indeed, globalism is seen as the future evolution of our society. What is at issue is how the globalism is being conducted, who is in charge and how fast we should “evolve”.

    Right now we have megalomaniacs making bids for power and domination over a populous without democratic process, or at best, corrupted democratic process. And our media has become part of that corruption. So, of course they have had to force it too fast to get it over before people could rebel. I wonder if they even realize, just how evil they are with their crimes against humanity for the “greater good” and their own wealth and power.

    I am sure even Trump has a vision for globalization. I just think it includes getting a fair deal for the American people and promoting our ideals in the deal.

    I know Bush and BO are rancid looters and I have always wondered what Bill was thinking when he promoted NAFTA. I want to hear Trump challenge Clinton on NAFTA in a fair debate. And I want to see Hillary there for that debate.

    I have always liked the Clinton’s and do not believe they are any more corrupt that the rest of the bunch. They are just more criticized and investigated for it. Look at BO’s gross abuses and ask how Bill could get impeached for lying about a blow job. Just read Roger Stone’s book on the Bush Crime Family. It is all that investigation and media publication of their dirty laundry that tells me they are not really one with the pack.

  43. Globalization is seen as the future by globalist, not every day people.
    We clearly don’t want it.
    The Clinton are as corrupt as any of them…

    “And JB…I don’t believe anyone here, besides the drive byes, felt Trump was in “trouble “.


    I was a little surprised myself when I read JB’s post, thinking, what did I miss? Of course, media has been blasting headlines and OP-ed pieces 24/7 with the ‘will she/won’t she’ be indicted meme?

    There has been a void in Trump news as The Donald is typically center stage around the clock and the world. Sort of like going out to Brunch at 9am and ordering a flute of champagne, claiming, it’s got to be 5 o’clock somewhere..

  45. The standard to be applied is not what we know to be true, but what can be proved. This tid bit raises and interesting point. We can reasonably infer that Hillary wanted this information on a private server so it would be beyond the reach of the Freedom of Information Act. Whether those emails prove a pay to play arrangement with foreign governments is unclear and must be examined on a case by case basis, which can only occur with full access to the books of the Clinton Foundation, and those will not be available. Now we find the suggestion by WashPo that 300 other officials used private servers. In that case, the question has to be how many of those people, underlings in some cases held the position of Secretary of State, and had access to the broad scope of sensitive information available to that position. The attempt to rope in Colin Powell also by WashPo failed because the facts did not support it. The comparison to Pateaus provides a middle ground which protects what is really important, namely the pedophile and the gay man in the closet at Justice, and the ethically challenged Lynch. Prosecutors considered espionage but let him off the hook with mishandling classified information. If I were going to guess, that is easily proven, carries no penalty, lets everybody say this 1 year exigesis gave us a teaching moment–the lesson being do not mishandle classified information, lets everybody involved off the proverbial hook, and makes our enemies happy and our allies nervous. Now that is a perfect Frank Capra ending, and allows Hillary to secure the nomination and continue Obama’s agenda of globalization, while the ignorant public says now is the time for our first woman president.

    I agree with you..

    “Right now we have megalomaniacs making bids for power and domination over a populous without democratic process, or at best, corrupted democratic process.”

    Exactly.. Those would be the un-elected puppet appointments, appointed by the elites as we are forced into the EU. The only reasons we haven’t been inducted into the EU in the dead of night is because we are a democratically elected government, the Constitution, and most importantly, we are a SOVEREIGN country.

    Obama’s task is to nullify the bedrock principals our forefathers embedded in the founding of this country. Which btw is the only country founded in the world by Christians in the name of God. So far it has worked splendidly for us for 240 yrs.

  47. Let’s hope wbb that the aware public outweighs the ignorant puplic come November.

    Make America Great Again 2016

    Trump 2016…

  48. Hillary graciously consented to give Todd five minutes. She told NBC’s Todd she was “eager” for the meeting and “pleased to have the opportunity to assist the department [sic] in bringing its review to a conclusion.”
    Evidently, in the age of Obama, alas, this is what a public servant is called upon to do: to assist those investigating the propriety and legality of the actions in bringing their foolish partisan waste of taxpayers time and money to a conclusion, and being pleased about it.

    Roger Stone, who has worked on 9 presidential campaigns, said that politics today has taken on an entirely different character. It is no longer a battle between competing philosophies, traditions, or the personality of the candidates. Here, and elsewhere across the world, the battle is between insiders and outsiders, because it has become increasingly clear that the insiders are destroying everything in their maniacal quest for unlimited wealth and power. Anyone who fails to realize the nature of the conflict which is playing out today is ignorant.

  50. Hillary could add to that statement, forgive them Daddy Soros–the investigators I mean, for they know not what they do. Right after the statement that she is pleased to be under investigation.

  51. Time left until Obama leaves office

    200 days, 08 hours

    Time until Friday, January 20, 2017 (Washington DC, District of Columbia time)

  52. No problem here. It’s the LAW.

    Switzerland Tells Young Muslims To Learn How To Swim Or Forget Citizenship

    Swiss authorities denied two Muslim girls naturalized citizenship because they refused to take part in swimming lessons.

    The Swiss canton of Basel — the equivalent of a state — listed absence from swimming classes in school as the reason for the refusal. The rejection took place in 2015, but was made public Monday by television network SRF.

    Learning how to swim is a compulsory part of the Swiss curriculum, as long as health reasons don’t stand in the way. The girls, aged 12 and 14, cited religious reasons for their refusal to take part in the classes, which means they couldn’t meet the educational requirements.

    Proof of successful integration is required for naturalization in Switzerland. Swiss courts have previously shut down attempts from parents to except their children from swim classes, saying “integration comes before religion.”

    Two Muslim boys made headlines during the spring for refusing to shake their female teachers’ hands. The local school board first exempted them from the handshake tradition, but a state court later overturned the decision.

    The boys’ family had their citizenship applications suspended shortly after the handshake incident went viral.

    In Tuesday’s indictment of free trade as virtual economic treason, The Donald has really set the cat down among the pigeons.

    For, in denouncing NAFTA, the WTO, MFN for China and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, all backed by Bush I and II, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, Trump is all but calling his own party leaders dunderheads and losers.

    And he seems to be winning the argument.

    As he calls for the repudiation of “globalism” and a return to “Americanism,” a Republican Congress renders itself mute on whether it will even vote on the TPP this year.

    On trade, Bernie Sanders is closer to Trump. Even Hillary Clinton has begun to renounce a TPP she once called the “gold standard” of trade deals.

    Where have all the troubadours of free trade gone? Why do economic patriots seem ascendant? Is this like the Cold War, where the other side gets up and goes home?

    Answer. As Trump pointed out in Monessen in the Mon Valley of Pennsylvania, the returns from free trade are in, and the results are rotten.

    Since Bush I, we have run $12 trillion in trade deficits, $4 trillion with China. Once a Maoist dump, China has become the greatest manufacturing power on earth. Meanwhile, the U.S. has lost 50,000 factories and a third of its manufacturing jobs.

    Trump is going to start a “trade war,” wail the critics.

    But the damage wreaked upon U.S. industry by free traders already rivals what Arthur “Bomber” Harris did for German industry in the Ruhr.

    In recent decades, every major U.S. trade partner — China, Japan, Canada, Mexico, EU — has run annual trade surpluses at our expense. How do 40 years of trade deficits in goods, run by a nation that rarely ran one for a century before, make us stronger or wealthier?

    Or is what is best for the world now more important than what is best for America?

    And here we come to the heart of the argument.

    Washington, Hamilton, and Henry Clay, father of the “American System,” and Lincoln and every Republican president up to Eisenhower, crafted trade policies to promote manufacturing to grow the wealth of the USA.

    They were patriots not globalists.

    They knew that America’s political independence required economic independence of all other nations. They wanted to build an economy where Americans would cut their bonds to foreign lands and come to rely upon one another for the needs and necessities of their national life. They sought to make us independent, so that we could not be dragged by economic ties into the inevitable wars of the Old World.

    And they succeeded magnificently.

    Britain, which embraced free trade in the 1840s, became so reliant on imports that a few dozen German submarines almost knocked her out of World War I. Protectionist America had to come pull her chestnuts out of the fire.

    Free trade ideology is not America-made. It is an alien faith, a cargo cult, smuggled in from the old continent, the work of men Edmund Burke called “sophisters, economists, and calculators.”

    David Ricardo, James and John Stuart Mill, Richard Cobden, all chatterers and scribblers, none of whom ever built a great nation, declared free trade to be the new New Testament, the salvation of mankind.

    These men in whose souls the old faith was dying seized on a utopian belief that world government and free trade would be the salvation of mankind. The Economist magazine was founded to preach the heresy.

    Before the modern era, Americans never bought into it. But now, our elites have. And, undeniably, there are beneficiaries to free trade.

    There are first the owners, operators and shareholders of companies who, to be rid of high-wage American labor, moved production to China or Mexico or where the costs are lower and regulations near nonexistent.

    Transnational companies, their K Street lobbyists, and media that survive on their advertising dollars, are the biggest boosters of free trade, as they are the biggest beneficiaries.

    Consumers, too, at least initially, see more products down at the mall, selling at lower prices. Cheap consumer goods are the bribes free traders proffer to patriots to sell out their country and countrymen to capitalists who have no country.

    But we are not simply consumers. We are Americans. We are fellow citizens. We are neighbors. We have duties to one another.

    When a factory shuts down and a town begins to die, workers are laid off. The local tax base shrinks, education and social services are cut. Folks go on unemployment and food stamps. We all pay for that.

    Wives go to work and kids come home from school to empty houses, and families break up, and move away. Social disintegration follows.

    “Creative destruction” is the antiseptic term free traders use to describe what they have done and are doing to the America we grew up in.

    Southeast of the old Steel City, in the Mon Valley of Pennsylvania, where my mother and her six brothers and her sister grew up, folks describe what happened more poignantly and graphically.


  54. Mrs Smith,

    Way to go Switzerland, America is too politically correct to do that now…but it must be done.
    No, Obama is actually watering down the requirements to be an American citizen. You don’t even need to voice you will protect her.
    Better to have America’s enemy’s inside that way he thinks, easy to call them to arms against her.

  55. Obama Will Need His Oratory Powers to Sell Globalization
    White House Letter By MARK LANDLER JULY 3, 2016

    WASHINGTON — When President Obama travels to North Carolina and Europe this week, he will press an argument that could define foreign policy in the last six months of his presidency: that Americans and Europeans must not forsake their open, interconnected societies for the nativism and nationalism preached by Donald J. Trump or Britain’s Brexiteers.

    Few presidents have put more faith than Mr. Obama in the power of words to persuade audiences to accept a complex idea, whether it is the morality of a just war or the imperfect nature of American society. Yet countering the anti-immigration and anti-free-trade slogans in this election year will require all of his oratorical skills.

    Mr. Obama road-tested his pitch over the last two weeks in two friendly venues: Silicon Valley and Canada. This week, he will take the case to North Carolina, a swing state that has been hard hit by the forces of globalization, and to a NATO meeting in Poland, where the alliance members will grapple with the effects of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, known as Brexit.

    In Warsaw, Mr. Obama will sit next to Britain’s lame-duck prime minister, David Cameron, whose political career was ended by his miscalculation over holding the referendum on European Union membership. But first, in Charlotte, N.C., he will campaign with Hillary Clinton, his former secretary of state and the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, who reversed her position on Mr. Obama’s Asian trade deal, formally called the Trans-Pacific Partnership, after many in her party turned sharply against free trade.

    From the first, the man has shuddered through his speeches with Uah, uah’s. What he has depended on is propaganda and corruption. And his narcissism will keep him going. His pitches will be the best advertising for Trump, yet. They just do not get it.

    The article below was published in 2012.. literally a marvelous rebuke to our government’s defining “who WE are”.. a phrase that sickens me when used by politicians. (We the People are NOT YOU the politician)

    Australia and Switzerland’s immigration policies are in similar vein to our own US policy on immigration. After hearing a reelection speech by FDR in a PBS episode of ‘The Roosevelts’ US policy for immigration to America in the 40’s reaffirms the system was working. (and would not be changed if he were elected) Immigrants knew and agreed before admission to assimilate into America’s culture and value system and understood and agreed to the major requirement of learning to speak English. ( which I understand this week Congress (in tandem w/WH approval) dropped that application requirement for citizenship )

    Unlike the Obama government’s reinterpretation of our grandfathered immigration policies supporting the PC crowd, insisting our country cater to immigrants demanding modifications and/or exemptions from US Immigration Laws.


    Prime Minister Julia Gillard(Australia)’s speech on immigrants…

    Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

    Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques.


    “I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’ We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society .

    ‘Learn the language!’

    ‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture. ‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

    ‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE‘.’

    ‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’
