In Appreciative Memory 
Charles Krauthammer
a man of rare brlliance, character, humor, and integrity

Charles Krauthammer (1950-2018)

We cover thee, Sweet Face __
Not that we tire of thee ––  
But that thyself fatigue of us.
Remember as Thou flee 
We follow Thee 
Until Thou notice us no more ––
And then reluctant turn away
To conn Thee o’er and o’er ––
And blame the scanty love
We were content to show ––
Augmented, Sweet, a hundredfold ––
If Thou couldst take it now.

FBI Agent, Who Exposed Hillary Clinton's Cover-up, Found Dead 

FBI Special Agent David Raynor

Special Agent David Raynor was due to testify against Hillary Clinton when he was killed. 

FBI Special Agent, David Raynor, who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton and Obama malpractice and corruption in the "Operation Fast and Furious" cover-up before a US Federal Grand Jury, has been found dead at his home.His wife was also found dead at the scene. The couple, apparently, were both being murdered with the 52-year-old agent's own gun. 

Raynor's tragic death comes just one day before he was due to testify before a US Federal Grand Jury.  He was widely expected to testify that Hillary Clinton acted illegally to protect Obama administration crimes while covering up the Fast and Furious scandal.  

An autopsy will be completed to determine the exact cause of death, according to police.

Special Agent Raynor’s suspicious death is the latest in a sequence of disturbing deaths in Baltimore connected to the Clinton/Obama cover-up of Operation Fast and Furious. According to the Baltimore Sun: Authorities, who are offering a $215,000 reward for tips in Suiter’s killing, have struggled to understand what happened. The detective was shot with his own gun, which was found at the scene. Two other shots were fired from the gun, and Davis said there were signs of a brief struggle.

Detective Sean Suiter,  one of the main witnesses in the case against Hillary Clinton and Obama, was an 18-year veteran of the force. However, Detective Suiter was gunned down in November, under circumstances eerily similar circumstances to thse of Special Agent Raynor and his wife. Both Suiter and Raynor were shot to death one day before they were due to testify. 

When President Trump took power, the US Justice Department opened another investigation into Operation Fast and Furious as it pertained to the Baltimore Police Department and impaneled a US Federal Grand Jury.

Special Agent Raynor was leading US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s and FBI Director Christopher Wray’s investigation into the murder of Detective Sean Suiter, who he believed was silenced before he could testify that the Obama administration was criminally complicit in allowing guns to flow into the hands of criminals on the Mexican border. 

Special Agent David Raynor's own gun was involved in the killings. These gun is seen by investigators as the “Achilles heel of the Obama regime,” because the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry is but one of a very few Obama administration crimes that have no statute of limitations.

Leaked Wikileaks emails also prove Hillary Clinton was fully knowledgeable about the crime—thus making her liable to criminal charges.  

Police closed off the area around the couple's home where their bodies were found.

The home where the brutal murders took place.
Last week Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report exposed yet more Hillary Clinton and Obama Administration crimes. The report, that was released last Thursday, revealed that the FBI had discovered evidence that Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation had committed "sexual crimes against children.  The report also shows that Obama lied to cover-up parts of these investigations that exposed child trafficking.

The IG report clearly indicates tevidence of these offenses has been covered-up and swept under the carpet by those acting at the highest levels.

Investor´s Business Daily, 

by Bob Maistros 

I’m tired. Done in by network and cable news alike. Fried from frequenting online publications and opinion sites. Pooped in perusing breathless alerts on my devices. I´ve had it. And I´m not alone. A Pew Research study recently found that nearly 7 in 10 Americans suffer from "news fatigue" — a phenomenon even more pervasive among Republicans. The survey focused on the volume as much as the quality of the offerings. But why wouldn´t the public be emotionally expended from the anger and accusations, bullying and backbiting, "fake news" and "fact checks," insults and innuendo, posturing and protests, threats and trolling, and virtue-signaling and violent rhetoric …

A Father’s Prayer

Ask not, my child, what I can do for you.
Forgive what seems like stinginess today.
A lot will be required to go through
The process of discovering the right way.
Help yourself. Don't wait for me, my child.
Each one of us must learn to stand alone.
Rich rewards like Love can't be beguiled,
Seduced or bought. They must in toil be grown.
Perhaps to you I sound a bit too stern?
Remember that I've lived a longer time.
A joy cannot exist until you earn
Your way. To do it FOR you'd be a crime.
Exacting though I seem, my little one,
Respect me now, and –– later –– you'll have fun.

The IG Report Shows That The Fix Was In from Start of the Clinton Email Investigation

by IBD staff 


Scandal: The long-awaited report from the Justice Department's inspector general about the FBI's handling of the Clinton email scandal seems to absolve the bureau of any political bias. What it really shows, however, is that the FBI — under pressure from President Obama — was just going through the motions the whole time.
Most of the focus of the report in the news has been on its criticism of then FBI director James Comey. The IG says that some of his actions were "extraordinary and insubordinate" — a scathing indictment if there ever was one. It is another black mark on Comey's already badly tarnished reputation, and well deserved.

However, the report also finds that there was "no evidence that the conclusions by department prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations.”

Naturally, that's what Democrats have seized on as proof that, aside from Comey's bungling, the FBI did its job.

But look at the report in its totality and you see that time and again officials made "judgment calls" that weakened their investigation. In other words, from the range of options available to them, they consistently chose the less aggressive course of action.

It says, for instance that "We questioned why the Midyear team" — referring to the "Midyear Review" code name given to the Clinton investigation — "did not serve subpoenas on or seek to obtain search warrants related to the last known persons to possess devices that the team was never able to locate.”

At another point it says that the FBI had considered obtaining permission from the Department to review certain classified materials that may have included information potentially relevant to the investigation." And while "the Midyear team drafted a memorandum to the Deputy Attorney General in late May 2016 stating that review of the highly classified materials was necessary to complete the investigation and requesting permission to access them, the FBI never sent this request to the Department."

At another it says that "The Midyear team did not obtain or review some evidence that we found might have been useful to the investigation.”

And the IG report notes that "several members of the FBI Midyear team, including Comey, expressed concerns that the prosecutors had not been sufficiently aggressive.”

A fool, a fiend, a patsy, or just an All-American goofball?

It says "the decision to allow the Clinton interview to proceed in the presence of two fact witnesses, who also were serving as Clinton's counsel, was inconsistent with typical investigative strategy and gave rise to accusations of bias and preferential treatment.”

The report also notes that the reasons given for why the FBI sat on news about Anthony Weiner's laptop for almost a month were totally unconvincing. One of them was that FBI resources had been redirected to the Trump-Russia probe. But as the IG notes, the FBI had enough resources to prepare speeches, talking points and other material defending their earlier decision to drop the case.

Evidence of Bias

Plus, the IG did find evidence of bias.

As the IG report notes, one of the agents involved in both the Clinton and Russia investigations — Peter Strzok — was texting FBI attorney Lisa Page saying things like how "we'll stop" Trump from being elected. This, the IG says, meant that his decisions regarding the Clinton email investigation might not have been "free from bias.”

Then there's the text from Page, regarding the interview with Clinton, saying that "One more thing: she might be our next president. The last thing you need (is) us going in there loaded for bear. You think she's going to remember or care that it was more doj than fbi?”

Our worst nightmare!

To that the IG said "suggesting that investigative decisions be based on this consideration was inappropriate and created an appearance of bias."
But underlying all of this is the fact — made clear throughout the report — that the FBI never thought there was a case here to begin with.
"As early as September 2015," it says, "FBI and Department officials realized that they were unlikely to find evidence of intent.”

And at several junctures, decisions made during the investigation were colored by the fact that the FBI had already decided they wouldn't pursue any legal action against Clinton.

One example involved getting laptops from top Clinton aides.

"Decisions concerning the laptops were occurring at a time when Comey and the Midyear team had already concluded that there was likely no prosecutable case and believed it was unlikely the culling laptops would change the outcome of the investigation.”

Obama's Thumb On The Scale

Angry, devious, self-serving?

The report also, whether intentionally or not, makes it clear why the FBI had concluded early on that there wasn't a case against Clinton: President Obama had already cleared Hillary of any wrongdoing.

The IG report recalls how, during a 60 Minutes interview on October 11, 2015, Obama "characterized former Secretary Clinton's use of a private email server as a 'mistake,' but stated that it did not 'pose a national security problem' and was 'not a situation in which America's national security was endangered.' Obama also stated that the issue had been 'ginned up' because of the presidential race.”

It goes on to say that "Obama's comments caused concern among FBI officials about the potential impact on the investigation.”

Former EAD John Giacalone told the IG, "We open up criminal investigations. And you have the President of the United States saying this is just a mistake ... That's a problem, right?”

Obama repeated his absolution in April 2016 — right around the time Comey was starting to draft his statement dropping the case against Clinton.

"Obama stated that while former Secretary Clinton had been 'careless' in managing her emails while she was Secretary of State, she would never intentionally do anything to endanger the security of the United States with her emails.”

So, while the IG might not have found smoking-gun evidence of political bias in the investigation, the report makes it clear that the entire investigation was biased from the start.

From Obama on down, no one ever wanted or intended to do what should have been done: Prosecute Clinton for gross negligence in her handling of highly classified material. The entire investigation was just for show.

Well, What Do YOU Make Of It?

It Should Be Interesting to See How the Market Responds Today.

The endless taunts, jibes, prevarication and calumny of the ENEMEDIA are becoming less and less relevant to American citizens. 


Serious stuff.

Trump was right, his button is bigger.

All the more reason to walk early.

Fox News Star Charles Krauthammer Reveals He Has Weeks to Live in 
Heartbreaking Letter

by Greg Wilson | Fox News

Syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer says his cancer has returned; reaction from Chris Wallace, anchor of 'Fox News Sunday,' and Juan Williams, Fox News analyst.

Charles Krauthammer, the beloved and brilliant Fox News Channel personality who gave up a pioneering career in psychiatry to become a Pulitzer Prize-winning political analyst, on Friday revealed the heartbreaking news that he is in the final stages of a losing battle with cancer.

The 68-year-old’s incisive takes on politics of the day have been missing from Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” for nearly a year as he battled an abdominal tumor and subsequent complications, but colleagues and viewers alike had held out hope that he would return to the evening show he helped establish as must-viewing. But in an eloquent, yet unblinking letter to co-workers, friends and Fox News Channel viewers, Krauthammer disclosed that he has just weeks to live.

“I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months,” the letter began. “I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me.”

"This is the final verdict. 
My fight is over.”
  • ~ Charles Krauthammer

Krauthammer, who graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1975 despite a first-year diving accident that left him a quadriplegic, explained that he had a malignant tumor removed from his abdomen last August. Although a series of setbacks left him in  the hospital in the ensuing months, he believed until recently that he was on the road to recovery.

“However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned,” Krauthammer wrote. “There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.”

What we never saw on television only makes his life more heroic

Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, said Krauthammer has been a giant of journalism and a key part of the channel's success.

"Charles has been a profound source of personal and intellectual inspiration for all of us at Fox News," Murdoch said. "His always principled stand on the most important issues of our time has been a guiding star in an often turbulent world, a world that has too many superficial thinkers vulnerable to the ebb and flow of fashion, and a world that, unfortunately, has only one Charles Krauthammer.

"His words, his ideas, his dignity and his integrity will resonate within our society and within me for many, many years to come," Murdoch added.

Fox News viewers will undoubtedly miss Krauthammer’s formidable intellect and ability to analyze politics and politicians with a cerebral wit and keen charm. As the dean of “The Fox News All Stars,” the panel of pundits who break down headlines and events nightly on Fox News Channel’s top-rated “Special Report,” Krauthammer could be counted on to make viewers think, question and even chuckle.

Krauthammer was on his way to greatness in the medical field when he veered first into policy, and then into journalism. After medical school, he became chief psychiatry resident at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he studied depression and published ground-breaking findings in top medical journals. But in 1978, he took a job in the Carter administration directing planning in psychiatric research and later served as a speech writer for Vice President Walter Mondale.

It was in the nation’s capital that Krauthammer trained his mind and talents on political analysis and began penning columns for The New Republic, Time magazine and finally the Washington Post. In 1985, he won journalism’s top prize for his weekly political commentary. In his sobering farewell, Krauthammer said he is “grateful to have played a small role in the conversations that have helped guide this extraordinary nation’s destiny.”

“I leave this life with no regrets,” Krauthammer wrote. “It was a wonderful life – full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make life worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.”

A brilliant, fair-minded, honest man who will be sorely missed

The heart asks pleasure first ––
And the excuse from pain ––
And then those little anodynes
That deaden suffering.

And then to go to sleep ––
And then –– if it should be
The Will of its Inquisitor ––
The liberty to die.

~ Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
