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.

Michael Horowitz, Inspector General


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.

    The Department of Justice´s Inspector General´s report is out on the conduct of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its investigations of President Trump, and incredibly, despite a mountain of misdeeds, from vowing to ´stop Trump´ to dripping contempt for President Trump´s voters as poor and stupid, the report concludes there was no political bias? Give us a break. If there was no bias, why is it taking so long to fire and charge anyone? Start with that. That is as much B.S. as former FBI Director James Comey saying that Hillary Clinton didn't have intent to break the law. She was all good intentions, you see, and therefore just . . .

    Decoding the Horowitz Report on ‘bias'

    American Thinker,

    by Thomas Lifson

    We are in the midst of a spin battle over the Inspector General’s report issued yesterday. Because Inspectors General cannot release their reports without giving those named within it a chance to contest it, and must be able to defend every single word of it, they must stick to facts and completely documentable conclusions. Inductive reasoning, looking at large patterns of facts and drawing conclusions does not survive such a process. The result is a report that is written in a kind of code.

  6. Oswald P. PentagasJune 15, 2018 at 9:54 AM

    The IG report also criticizes FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who exchanged texts ridiculing, and discrediting Trump before moving from the Clinton email to the Russiagate investigation. Those texts “brought discredit” to the FBI and sowed public doubt about the investigation, including one exchange that read, “Page: “Trump’s not ever going to become president, right? Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.” Another Strzok document stated “we know foreign actors obtained access to some Clinton emails, including at least one secret message.”
    This kind of shows us that it was more like the FBI was in cahoots to influence the election rather than the Russians.

    One of the biggest takeaways from the Department of Justice´s 500-page inspector general report is how deep the contempt for voters is among the Federal Bureau of Investigation´s leadership elite. The text messages are incredible. According to the gleanings of J. Christian Adams over at Pajamas Media: One FBI agent on the Hillary investigation wrote in an FBI text: Trump´s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS. "POS" is the agent´s acronym for "Pieces Of S---." There´s also this from Adams: In another FBI communication, Strzok says he visited a rural Virginia Walmart – and the customers had a . . .

      I see Mr. Trump as very possbly our last best hope to AVOID that dismal fate.

    There are several major questions that I have for the Department of Justice and for the Inspector General. Inquiring Minds Want to Know.

    When before in our lifetime did "journalist" bribe FBI officials with meals, sports tickets, golf outings, etc., and etc, and the agents who took the bribes, violated their oaths and department policies, to leak stories to the journalist, get away with all that without going to jail?

    James Comey at a minimum was caught lying under oath,and telling two different stories to the FBI.

    Loretta Lynch was caught meeting with Bill Clinton on her private plane 3 days before Hillary was to testify, and the IG called it inappropriate? The implication was very clear, obstruction of Justice!

    Hillary Clinton deleted some 30,000 subpoena emails,( could you or I do that?) that James Comey called “Bad Judgement” But no “Intent”..

    “Foreign actors” obtained access to some of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails, including at least one email classified as “Secret”

    And how about Peter Strzok’s text to Lisa Page saying ..Page texted “Trump’s not ever going to become president, right? Right?”
    Strzok’s answer....“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,”

    I have one question, if Trump did any of those things would any of you Libs be OK with that?
    Well all I can say is that ...Mueller better have some hard collusion evidence, because that Obstruction of Justice claim has just flown out of the window.

    Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report points to multiple irregularities in FBI chief James Comey’s actions in the 2016 election campaign, sees no evidence of political bias, but never really gets to the bottom of why Mr. Comey played the role he did.

    Ok, you Lying, Vulgar, Bleeding Heart Liberals, I’m going to give it to you and Give it to you Straight, NOT like the stupid photo shopped captions, and sayings pictured on facebook by feckless Progressives, and others like the progressives on these boards !
    When an American citizen is arrested for a crime. He is separated from his family and put in jail. And many times the children are taken from the offender's home and put in the custody of Child Services. So why should illegals who have committed a criminal act by sneaking across our border be treated any differently? What kind of parent would subject their kids to that?

    Here's are the facts, these people, these poor poor poor displaced people would rather risk losing their children to a country that will NOT harm them than stay in a country that will. Despite all the hoopla of separating these kids, and putting them in “cages” like the Progressives are saying, they are being kept in air conditioned housing, with TV, eating 3 healthy meals a day, and being kept warm, and safe....all this on the tax payer's dime.

    So as a tax payer I ask, at what point will this stop? As long as these parents don’t really care about their children that they have brought with them to cross our boarders ILLEGALLY, knowing that they might be separated from them, but hoping we would give them a free pass because of the children, then the outcome is on them, the abusive parents! NOT on us, and NOT on President Trump.
    These Kids are not going to be put in jail, or cages are you are being told by Nancy Pelosi, or by Chuck Schmucky Schumer, These kids will get a free education, they will get housing, 3 square meals a day, they will get all the perks avoided a US citizen.. But how long do you think we can do this, or will do this?
    As long as these parents continue to bring these kids in, knowing that they ain't going no where and more and more and more and more families will make this move no matter what we do, so at what point do we say enough? I'm just being real here when I say how long do you think that the tax payers can afford to do this? At some point if we continue to take in all these Latin American kids along with their parents, this country will soon be another Mexico, and what then? Our welfare rolls are exploding, our jobs are being taken away aided and abated by employers that use illegals for cheap labor.
    Our schools are over crowed. This is a ‘crisis’ of our own making.
    Already, town after town, city after city this country is housing more Latino's than any other immigrate to this country, already English is slowing being diluted because the older people never adapt to English. At what point does the tax payer who foots all this hardship say enough?

    This nation is wracking up $1 trillion of debt per annum, one in five inhabitants scarcely has a pot to piss in (and no savings or retirement funds), feral gangs of africans and savage central americans rape, rob, plunder and besiege us, the federal government has devolved into a complex system of interlocking crime syndicates running bunko schemes and vast embezzlement enterprises that would make Al Capone blush, yet the liberal Democrats have us believe nothing matters more that President Donald Trump's government separating criminal aliens from their children.

    These shameless bastard Democrats ignore the fact that parents pay thousands of dollars to have themselves and their children trafficked through a Satanic gauntlet of rape, robbery, murder and official government corruption. Then when our government places the children in a safe, clean shelter, diabolical Democrats call it child abuse!

    Lord knows this nation has survived many calamities that would have destroyed lesser nations, but I doubt we shall be able to long survive the swarming horde of leftists assailing this great nation, weakening our defenses and sapping our foundations.

    Lord help us.

    1. He will help us, but the help will come sooner and with greater strength once WE stop badgering and belittling each other in the everlasting fight to obtain POWER and DOMINION over each other.

      BOTH the D'Rats and the EGOPs have NO real interest in "promotig the general welfare" at ALL, They're concenred primarily with USING genuine issues only to advance THEMSELVES and secure their POWER bases.

      This is fundamentally a wrong-headed approach to governance. It is UNGOLY –– just as Marxian ideologies invariably are ungodly –– and is, therefore, bound to FAIL

      Since we are supposed to be a government OF, BY, and FOR iur CITIZENS, it well behooves us to do everything possible to see that our people are PROPERLY educated –– NOT endlessly subjected ro a militant campaign of subversive propaganda designed to produce IGNORANT AUTOMATA obedient only to the dictates of atheistic, collectivist claptrap.

      An ignorant, MISeducated public is incapable of governing itself, and thereofre DOOMED to subhect itself to DESPOTISM.

      Calling each other names, and expressing only contempt for anyone whose beliefs differ from our own is not going to get us ANYWHERE. Such behavior could lead only to PERDITION.

      Endless DERISION produces only DESOLATION,

    Trump's America: Abusing and Traumatizing Babies and Children

    Detaining Migrant Children Has Lifelong Psychological Effects, Experts Say

    Where are the Christians who support #45? Do they not see the damage his policies are doing to babies, children, and teens? Do those Christians actually believe this is something their Savior would have taught in his Sermon on the Mount:

    "Blessed are the governments who punish babies and children for what their parents do, for those governments are doing God's work?"

    None of the so-called "Christian" blogs are talking about this atrocious crime against humanity. They continue to support a so-called president who heaps praise upon a vicious killer while at the same time allows his administration to terrorize families and traumatize children.

    I don't believe in a Hell, but if there were one, I would wish that the hideous Trump spend eternity roasting his onions there.

    Trump and the Goopers who remain silent while this travesty is in place deserve to be kicked out of the human race.
