Daily Recap — May 17

We’ve reached the end of another recap week; one in which I’ve tried to get my feet back under me writing wise. Thanks for your patience as I work my way back.

It hasn’t been easy but, as always, you’ve made it worth it.

COULD OUR SHIP BE COMING IN?

.

.

Okay, folks. We’ve been waiting for what seems like forever. We want stuff investigated, exposed and, most importantly, acted upon. So has our ship finally come in? Could we finally see some justice meted out to those on the other side who so richly deserve it?

Frankly, yes, I think so. But we’re at the verrrrrrry beginning, so hold your horses just a bit longer. Oh come on, you’ve been holding them for over a year now. A little longer won’t kill you.


.

It appears that Inspector General Mike Horowitz’s long-awaited report on the DOJ/FBI’s handling of the Hillzdawg email probe is complete and now in the process of being packaged for release. And John Brennan, Sally Yates, James Clapper and co. seem to be nervous. Meanwhile, others in DC who have actually been working to get to the bottom of this corruption have anxious energy in the precise other direction:

“We’re all anxiously awaiting this report,” Rep. Jim Jordan, (R-OH) told Hannity last night.

Horowitz announced the draft report was done in a letter to members of Congress last night. However, he didn’t say when the results of the review will be officially released to the FBI, DOJ and congressional committees.

Here we see IG Mike Horowitz caught mid-badass.


.

Multiple subjects of the IG report have been notified that they can privately review the report by week’s end, signaling the document release is right around the corner.

Those invited to review the report were told they would have to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to read it, according to “people familiar with the matter” (read: GOP congressmen leaking info). They are expected to have a few days to craft a response to any criticism in the report, which will then be incorporated in the final version to be released in coming weeks.

Horowitz said he has provided a draft report to the DOJ and the FBI, and requested that they review it to identify any information that should be protected from disclosure.

 

“Additionally, consistent with our usual process, we have asked the Department and FBI to provide us with any comments they wish us to consider regarding the report’s accuracy and completeness,” Horowitz wrote in his letter to lawmakers.

 

He said they will allow the DOJ and FBI to submit a formal written letter to be attached to the final report before releasing it. Considering the stonewalling and other BS the DOJ/FBI have been engaged in for the last year, I don’t believe they deserve any kind of response whatsoever. But I guess you’re not supposed to sink to your enemy’s level.

I guess.


 

For more than a year, our boy Mikey H. has been reviewing the FBI’s actions related to its investigation into the Clinton private server while she fulfilled her duties as the worst secretary of state in history (only slightly worse than John Kerry).

 

Horowitz’s investigation looked at a variety of allegations, including whether it was improper for Leakin’ James Comey to make a public announcement about not recommending prosecution over the Clinton email arrangement.

 

The review has already put top FBI official Deep State McCabe in legal jeopardy. Horowitz sent a criminal referral for McCabe in April to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington.

That was in response to finding that McCabe leaked information to the press about the investigation and later lied about it to Comey and federal investigators, prompting Keebler Sessions to grow a pair and fire him in March.

The McCabe portion of the report has already been read to Congress.

.


.

Last November, Horowitz said his team had interviewed dozens of people and reviewed about 1.2 million friggin records in the course of its investigation. He said his team was looking at whether “certain underlying investigative decisions were based on improper considerations.”

 

The review also looked at whether the DOJ’s assistant attorney general for legislative affairs “improperly disclosed non-public information to the Clinton campaign” and should have been recused. That’s in reference to official Peter Kadzik, who had been an attorney in the past for creepy pizza aficionado John Podesta.

To top things off, the review is looking at whether any DOJ or FBI employees improperly disclosed non-public information, which means Comey has had some sleepless nights as of late.

.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

.

Well, everything, really. Although we’ve been following all the little details of this saga since last year, we don’t know the exact charges that are coming down the pipe, nor for whom they’re en route. But there are some points that need to be taken into account so as to keep ourselves. firmly grounded.

First, it’s important to note that the scope of this investigation was fairly narrow. It was meant to focus on the potential misdeeds of law enforcement officials in handling the Hillzdawg email probe. That’s pretty much it.

The good news — or bad news, depending on one’s perspective — is that corruption was so rampant in the Obama administration that even a narrow probe such as that was sure to touch on a thousand other things in its process. And that appears to be exactly what’s happening.

Remember, it was the OIG probe that revealed the infamous Strzok/Page “insurance policy” texts about Trump. It’s abundantly clear that many rabbit holes were opened over the course of this baby, hence why we ended up with over a million documents and  several new investigations opened as a result, including ones into the Clinton Foundation, Uranium One and improper surveillance by the Obama regime. Yes, there are investigations ongoing into all of those things, though you wouldn’t know it to listen to the legacy media.

That being said, please understand that we’re only at the beginning of this process. Yes, I know that’s the last thing you want to hear after exercising so much patience for so long, but the fact is, Horowitz can only make criminal referrals. He can’t indict anyone on his own.

Thankfully, Keebler appointed John Huber a while back so we have someone waiting to drop the hammer when the facts roll in. Theoretically…..I repeat….THEORETICALLY this should work great. Horowitz releases his findings, the crimes are laid out in detail, Huber impanels a grand jury and Lady Justice gets her groove back. 

That’s how this should work.

.


.

OH YEAH, HERE’S THE GOOD STUFF:

.

Now that I’ve curbed everyone’s enthusiasm sufficiently, let’s build that baby right back up.

Investigative reporter Paul Sperry says that not only has Horowitz found ‘reasonable grounds’ for believing that the FBI/DOJ committed felonies when investigating Hillzdawg, he’s already “referred his findings of potential criminal misconduct to Huber for possible criminal prosecution.”

In addition, the former DC federal prosecutor Trumper Joe DiGiorno or whatever his name is just announced that “Brennan better get a very good lawyer. And not just a slip-and-fall lawyer, a criminal one. Although Brennan is definitely about to slip and fall before a grand jury.”

Now those are pretty sharp words. And not from some hobo on the street. DiGiorno is plugged into the Trump administration pretty heavily, so much he was set to join the Trump legal team just last month.

So let’s think about this for a moment. A probe that began with the purpose of looking into the mishandling of the Clinton email probe has now snagged a former CIA Director in a scheme that we’ve yet to even discover.

Good lord…..what ELSE have they stumbled onto? It certainly seems that Horowitz uncovered something in the process of his investigation that is much bigger than what he’d planned.

BIG PICTURE:
.
.
I’ve said it twice already and I’ll say it again: be patient. It could be 3-4 weeks before this thing is actually released for public consumption, and even then many of the facts may be redacted by the very (corrupt) DOJ that has been investigated.
But let there be no doubt, this is the beginning of a new day. This is when the rats begin to eat each other and expose the misdeeds of everyone else in their ship.
.
The corruption of the Obama administration was just too deep to stay secret forever. 
.
I’ve been saying it since PDT took office and I’ll throw it out there once more: PDT knows stuff that we don’t, and we’ll find out whenever it’s most beneficial for him. This IG probe isn’t the end all/be all of investigations, but I believe it’s most certainly the spark on the fuse that will ultimately lead to the explosion on which we’ve all been waiting to roast our marshmallows. 
.
Never, ever lose your faith. I’ve spent many nights begging you not to give up hope and now hopefully you see why. There was always more going on than we knew.
.
My logic regarding this matter has always been fairly simple. You don’t have to trust the government to hold itself accountable. I certainly don’t. But I do trust Donald J. Trump to take his enemies behind the woodshed, no matter how long it takes.
.
They shot at the king and missed.
.
Now sit back and enjoy the show.

SHE’D RATHER BE WATERBOARDING

.

.

It’s been a good day for the Treyster, at least in terms of predictions. Though I do admit, it’s never a good day to refer to oneself in the third person. I apologize for the douche chill that just washed over you.

.

Gina Haspel was confirmed today to be the first ever broad in charge of the CIA, and she did it with the help of votes from a half-dozen Senate Dims.

.

She was confirmed in a 54-45 vote, the culmination of a roller-coaster nomination that was thrown into question at several points when hypocritical politicians on both sides pretended to be so offended by the OMG WATERBOARDING that took place shortly after 9/11 under her (and everyone else’s) watch. 
.
Three Republicans opposed Haspel’s nomination: little person Rand Paul of Kentucky, Jeff Snowflake of Arizona and Cooter McCain of Arizona, although Cooter technically didn’t vote due to illness.
.
But Haspel secured enough votes to win confirmation with the backing of six Democrats, including Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, of all people. 
.

 
Most of the Dim votes in favor of Haspel, as *someone* I know predicted, came from senators who are up for re-election in November in states that Trump won #BigLeague in 2016, including Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Bill Nelson of Florida. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire also joined in the fun. 
.

Of course, all the faux righteous indignation from those on the Left (and some on the Right) was aways laughable. At the time that the enhanced interrogation program was implemented, EVERYONE in Congress was briefed on the program, and virtually EVERYONE approved of it.

At the time, another Al-Qaeda attack was considered to be imminent. And guess what — it probably was. The pearl-clutchers on the Hill fail to mention that we did, indeed, get actionable intel from the THREE friggin people we waterboarded in total. One of the men waterboarded was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the literal mastermind of 9/11 and beheader of American journalists such as the Wall St. Journal’s Daniel Pearl. 

I can’t go into everything that was extracted from those sessions, but I can tell you that we were able to get information on command structure and financing, which is some of the most valuable information we can attain from a goat-humper. 
Is is always effective? Of course not. Nothing is 100% effective. But those people who say it’s not nor ever has been effective simply don’t know what the hell they’re talking about. 
.
.

.

.
QUESTIONS THAT DEMAND ANSWERS:
.
.
You know me, folks. I’m a Trumper through and through but I don’t sacrifice the truth for anyone. 
.
So while I think it’s absurd that a 17-year old waterboarding program would preclude someone from consideration for CIA Director (or any other government position), that doesn’t mean Haspel has nothing to answer for.
.
We learned this week that the FBI sent agents to London to kick off their cute little counterintel probe known as “Crossfire Hurricane.” We also have good reason to suspect that GCHQ (the British NSA), and possibly other British intel services, could have been involved in gathering intel against the Trump campaign.
.
From 2014-2018, Haspel oversaw the European division of the CIA with an office headquartered in London. These facts beg certain questions.
.
Reports state that only about 5 people in the entire FBI were aware of Crossfire Hurricane. Was Haspel one of those left in the dark, even though a high-profile and unusual meeting with an Australian ambassador was held right in her back yard? Was she aware of any shady activity being undertaken against Trump by high-ranking officials within the IC (intel community)? If so, what did she do about it? 
.
But I submit that there is another possibility. Could Haspel’s knowledge of anti-Trump activity within the IC be the very reason that Trump trusts her as he does? Is that why she’s now the new CIA Director? Did she earn Trump’s trust by giving up the goods, just as NSA Director Mike Rogers did shortly after the election on his trip to Trump Tower? 
.
Remember, Trump knows much more than we do. I find it implausible that he wouldn’t want to know where Haspel fit into all this mess, especially considering her position in Europe during which all this was going down.
.
I’m inclined to believe that Haspel earned Trump’s trust via information.
.

.

.
.

In any event, we now have our first female CIA Director, and she better put her big girl pants on because, my friends, #TheStorm is upon us. And she’s right smack dab in the middle of it.

I certainly hope my analysis is correct.

NET NEUTRALITY UPDATE

.

.

I held off on this story until I could get an accurate view of the legislative landscape. Thank you for your patience.

I’m not going to make your eyes bleed with paragraph upon paragraph of technical jargon. I’m simply going to give you an update on whether the government will reassume control of the internet anytime soon. If you trust Uncle Sam to control the net, you want this thing to pass. If not, you don’t.

Pretty simple.

In a forced vote this week, three Republican senators joined senate Dims in what could considered a historic upset for the legal body (at least recently), voting to approve a measure meant to protect net neutrality rules. Even with the senate’s approval under their belt, however, net neutrality advocates still have a lonnnnnng way to go to get the act passed in the House, and not long to get there.

In a vote of 52 to 47, senators voted yesterday to overturn the Federal Communication Commission (FCC)’s 2017 ‘Restoring Internet Freedom Order,’ which walked back net neutrality rules set forth by Barry Soetoro in the 2015 ‘Open Internet Order.’ The senate’s 49 Dims were joined by some of the usual suspects: abortion enthusiast Susan Collins of Maine, overrated whiner John Kennedy of Louisiana, and undocumented Democrat Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

.


This spring, Dims and advocates for the rules announced that senators would attempt to use a Congressional Review Act (CRA) to restore Barry’s internet power-grab.

Using a CRA, Congress can reverse recent decisions made by government agencies, as in the case of the FCC; it also allows senators to force a vote with just 30 signatures, which normally wouldn’t get such a bill near a gavel.

However, unlike the Senate, House representatives do not have a forced deadline at present, and may attempt to avoid voting and wait out the CRA’s lifetime until a new Congress comes into session next year. And despite fairly broad support on the Hill, it’ll be hard work getting a Republican crew of that size to take up the issue, especially with the immigration food fight at hand.
 

.
.
.
BOTTOM LINE:
.
.
.
The prospect of Net Neutrality being restored is unlikely, at least anytime soon. If Dims manage to win back the House, though, the chances skyrocket overnight. There is already enough Republican support in the Senate.
.
Contrary to the alarmism of Dims and their RINO buddies, though, no, the loss of NN does NOT mean you’re going to have to pay $5 per Facebook post. If anything, costs will go down as the government is no longer forcing companies to treat data equally regardless of bandwidth. Remember when internet used to cost about $20/month? Those were the good old days before Obama decided to take over.
.
And yes, that’s exactly what it is. Net Neutrality gives the gubmint ultimate control over the internet. Sorry, but that’s not a good idea. It’s not a matter of if, but when they use that power for censorship. We already have our hands full with far left tech CEOs being hostile toward conservative voices, but at least we can fight back against that with platforms of our own. It will take a while, but it will happen.
.
If it becomes us vs. the government, though, you can forget it. Twitter can only censor Twitter. Facebook can only censor Facebook. But once Uncle Sam gets in on the game, the whole system becomes vulnerable to these soulless globalists.
.
No thank you .

CLEANING UP THE CLINTON MESS

.

.

If you’ve been with me for a while, you may recall a couple occassions in which I explained how the killing of Qaddafi in Libya would make Trump’s life very hard in dealing with Rocket Man. Now, the rest of the country gets to find out.

.

PDT sought to reassure Lil Kim today that this is not the same government that overthrew Qaddafi after he disarmed himself, hoping to get things back on track after Kim threatened to pull out of the upcoming nuclear summit.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said he is “willing to do a lot” to offer Kim “protections” if he agrees to surrender his nukes.

 

“He will get protections that are very strong,” Trump said during an Oval Office meeting with NATO’s secretary-general. “The best thing he could do is make a deal.”


.

PDT said preparations for the meeting are moving ahead “as if nothing happened,” adding the U.S. has not heard official word from the North Koreans about any intention to pull out. 

“Our people are literally dealing with them right now in terms of making arrangements, so that’s a lot different than what you read, but oftentimes what you read, if it’s not fake news, is true,” he said.

Problem is, Kim seems to be looking for reasons to get pissy. Yesterday it was all about the military exercises that we were undertaking with South Korea. Now, he’s threatening not to show up if the U.S. continues to demand “unilateral” nuclear disarmament. What that means is denuclearization must extend to the entire peninsula, which in Rocket Man speak means breaking up the alliance between the U.S. and South Korea. On his view, so long as the U.S. backs up SK, the peninsula is still “nuclearized.”


.

WHERE LIBYA COMES IN:

.

Kim has been reluctant to denuclearize because he believes his arsenal is critical not only to his ability to maintain power, but his very survival. North Korean officials blasted national security adviser John Bolton this week for saying the U.S. is seeking a “Libya model” with North Korea. 

Of course, when Bolton brought up the so-called Libyan model, he was referring to the very effective methods used to dismantle Qaddafi’s nuclear program. We got in there, verified it and shipped the components to a safe site (Tennessee actually). Bada-bing bada-boom, that easy.

That is, until that ****ing moron Hillary Clinton talked with her political operative buddy Sid “Vicious” Blumenthal and decided that she better get a foreign policy achievement under her belt before running for POTUS in 2016. 

That’s why she, in her extremely finite wisdom, decided it best to force Qaddafi from power in 2011 with the help of NATO forces, just eight years after striking a deal with the U.S. to give up his nuclear weapons. He was captured and killed that same year.

And with that single insanely idiotic move, HRC put out the message to every potential nuclear dictator worldwide that they better hold onto their nukes with everything they can lest they be taken out on a whim just like Qaddafi.

People really don’t understand just how badly she screwed over this country. 

PDT spent a good bit of time today reassuring the Kim regime that this would not go the same way, and that the Libyan model has nothing to do with deposing leaders.

“The Libyan model isn’t a model that we have at all when we are thinking of North Korea,” Trump said. “In Libya we decimated that country. That country was decimated. There was no deal to keep Gadhafi. The Libyan model that was mentioned was a much different deal.”

PDT indicated nuclear-related sanctions would remain in full effect if the talks with North Korea fall through, but said that a deal would allow Kim to continue “running his country” and allow it to become “very rich.” 

The Libyan disarmament agreement did not specifically address Gadhafi’s status as ruler.

.


.

.

BOTTOM LINE:

.

We’re offering Rocket Man peace, prosperity and security in exchange for disarming his nukes. 

In the meantime, he’s flexing muscle again to use every bit of leverage he has going into our negotiations. Flex as he may, though, the fact still remains — PDT isn’t going to allow him to have nuclear ICBM capacity, meaning he could hit the continential U.S, with a nuclear-tipped missle anytime he likes. 

So this will ultimately come down to whether he believes we’re bluffing. Kim has already proven he’s not suicidal. Trump revealed that fact during the Guam standoff. 

Now, we just have to convince him that 1) we’ll kill him if he doesn’t disarm, and 2) we won’t kill him if he does disarm (as we did with Qaddafi).

Easy enough, right?

I do not envy PDT’s job.
