The Three Wise Monkeys: Asa Hutchinson, Comey & Mueller

December 16, 2017

 

Maybe you are familiar with the three wise monkeys. Together they embody the proverbial principle “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. I plan to make the case that Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson along with former FBI Directors James B. Comey and Robert S. Mueller, III, may be modern day wise monkeys?

Asa Hutchinson’s record of seeing, hearing and speaking no evil can be found as easily as tracking an elephant through the snow but most voters simply lack the time and inclination to actually know who they vote for. Maybe my research will help?

Asa Hutchinson, as a crime fighter, does not remind me of Eliot Ness, Wyatt Earp or Wild Bill Hickok, he brings to mind Steven Quincy Urkel. Urkel is a fictional character on the ABC/CBS sitcom Family Matters who was originally slated to have been a one-time only character on the show; he soon became its most popular character and gradually became the main character.

I begin with a newspaper article by Mara Leveritt.  She won a White Award for investigative journalism in 1991, was named Arkansas Journalist of the Year in 1992, and was awarded Arkansas’s Booker Worthen Prize in 2000 for her book The Boys on the Tracks”.  She is also a contributing editor to the Arkansas Times”:

“Some strange things happened in Asa Hutchinson’s district while he was federal prosecutor that he doesn’t mention in his speeches. Specifically, a man identified by federal agents as “a documented, major narcotics trafficker” was using facilities at an airport in Hutchinson’s district for “storage, maintenance, and modification” of his drug-running aircraft, throughout most of Hutchinson’s tenure. The man was Adler Berriman “Barry” Seal. For the last four years of his life – and throughout Hutchinson’s term as U.S. attorney – his base of operations was Mena, Arkansas. In 1982, the year that Hutchinson took office as U.S. attorney and Seal moved to Mena, federal officials were already aware that he controlled “an international smuggling organization” that was “extremely well organized and extensive.” Agents for the DEA, FBI, U.S. Customs, and IRS were watching him. They brought Hutchinson evidence that Seal was “involved in narcotics trafficking and the laundering of funds derived from such trafficking.” . . . My interest in the relationship between Seal and Hutchinson was piqued as I became aware of how heavily drug prosecutions fell on street- and mid-level dealers, while smugglers like Seal, who imported drugs by the ton, rarely ended up in prison. So when rumors surfaced about Seal and his organization, and how they had managed for years to avoid prison, even though the extent of their activities was well known to drug authorities, I wanted to know more. But getting the story has not been easy. In the early 1990s, I asked Hutchinson about Barry Seal and his associates at Mena. Hutchinson provided no information, and politely dismissed the complaints that had arisen by then about his failure to prosecute Seal. He said he had already resigned as U.S. attorney by the time the matter arose . . . I believe that if this country is going to fight a long and costly war, the war’s leaders have an obligation to report faithfully on its battles. The incidents that surrounded Seal constituted a major battle. But the faithful report has been missing. For more than 15 years, U.S. government officials, including Hutchinson, who were close to the events have maintained a stony silence . .”

ACCORDING TO POLICE SOURCES in Arkansas, Bush’s reported nominee to head the DEA, Asa Hutchinson, knew about the extensive drug importation at Mena during the 1980s but looked the other way. Hutchinson was replaced by Mike Fitzhugh who was reluctant to let investigators Russell Welch of the state police and William Duncan of the IRS present evidence of money-laundry to a grand jury.

Russell Welch was poisoned with Military Grade Anthrax

According to a memo obtained later by Arkansas Times reporter Mara Leveritt, an FBI agent in Hot Springs notifies the agent in charge of the Little Rock office that Fitzhugh would be “withholding presentation” about the investigation at Mena from the grand jury. The memo is dated days before notorious drug trafficker Barry Seal’s murder, and a month before he was to come to Arkansas to appear before that same grand jury. The agent in Hot Springs further reports that Fitzhugh “advised that he will not utilize Seal as a government prosecution witness in view of his lack of credibility in other mitigating circumstances.” Wrote Leverrit, “For almost three years, a federal grand jury in the Western District of Arkansas considered questions about drug-running, money-laundering, and illegal airplane modification – all of which investigators believed were being conducted at the Mena airport. But Fitzhugh reportedly focused only on the drug-running allegations, the aspect of the case the jurors felt would be the most difficult one to prove about anyone except Seal, and he, by then, was dead. According to statements from one of the jurors, Fitzhugh refused to consider the money laundering or conspiracy charges, for both of which the jurors believed evidence was substantial. ‘We asked him about it,’ the juror said, “and it was like just blown off. We were never given a straight answer.’ Fitzhugh has denied having stymied the grand jury, but he has never explained why, in the three years it met, Welch and Duncan, the central investigators in the case, were never called to testify.”

IN 1995, THE AMERICAN SPECTATOR magazine published an article by L.D. Brown, a former member of Clinton’s Arkansas State Police security detail, in which he described participating in two secret flights from Mena in 1984, during which M-16 rifles were traded to Nicaraguan Contra rebels in exchange for cocaine. Brown also claims that Clinton knew of the activity. Writes Mara Leveritt in the Arkansas Times: “That announcement spurred Fort Smith lawyer Asa Hutchinson, chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party, to request yet another Congressional Inquiry into long-standing allegations of money-laundering at Mena. Hutchinson was the the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas when investigators first presented evidence supporting those allegations. In an argument disputed by police investigators, Hutchinson claims he left office before the evidence was well established. Since he harbors political ambitions, he has an interest in clearing his name.” (Note: Are you beginning to see that Congressional Inquiries, like the Congressional Ethics Committee, have as much consequence as passing gas in a Category Five Hurricane?)

FROM A CONGRESSIONAL DEPOSITION from IRS investigator William Duncan:

Q. Would you describe the nature of your instructions and the manner in which you carried out those instructions as they relate to activities surrounding the Mena Airport matter?
A. I was assigned to investigate allegations of money laundering in connection with the Barry Seal organization, which was based at the Mena, Arkansas airport.
Q. And can you — how long a duration were you involved in this investigation?
A. I received the first information about Mena and illegal activities at the Mena Airport in April of 1983, in a meeting in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Fort Smith, Arkansas. Asa Hutchinson was the U.S. Attorney then. Also present at that meeting was Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Jim Stepp, S-T-E-P-P.
Q. Did you discover what you believed to be money laundering?
A. Yes, I did.
Q. Who was the object of your investigation, and what institution?
A. Rich Mountain Aviation, Incorporated based at the Mena Airport. Barry Seal was not actually a target. We had targeted the employees and cohorts of his which operated out of the Mena Airport.
Q. What did you do with the evidence of money laundering that you gathered from your investigation?
A. Presented it to the United States Attorney’s Office, Western Judicial District, Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Q. And what were your recommendations to the U.S. Attorney?
A. That those individuals and corporation — the corporation be prosecuted for violations of the money laundering statutes, also there were some perjury recommendations and some conspiracy recommendations.
Q. Did you present to the U. S. Attorney a list of prospective witnesses to be called?
A. Yes, I did.
Q. For a grand jury?
A. Yes.
Q. And do you have the names of those witnesses?
A. There were a variety of witnesses. There were some 20 witnesses. He called three witnesses. The witnesses including — included the law enforcement personnel who had participated in the investigations, Barry Seal, members of his organization, people who were involved in the money laundering, and various financial institution officers who had knowledge.
Q. Mr. Duncan, the money laundering to which you refer, did that arise out of an alleged drug trafficking operation managed from the Mena, Arkansas airport?
A. It did.
Q. And it has been alleged that the Central Intelligence Agency had some role in that operation. Is that the same operation that you investigated?
A. Yes.
Q. And when you submitted the witnesses, the names of the prospective witnesses to the U. S. Attorney in Arkansas, are you referring to Mr. — what was the name of the U. S. Attorney?
A. Asa Hutchinson.
Q. Asa Hutchinson. And what was his reaction to your recommendations?
A. It had been my experience, from my history of working with Mr. Hutchinson, that all I had to do is ask for subpoenas for any witness and he would provide the subpoenas and subpoena them to a grand jury. His reaction in this case was to subpoena only three of the 20 to the grand jury.
Q. Now, of the three witnesses, who were — what was the nature of the evidence that would have been elicited from those witnesses?
A. Direct evidence in the money laundering.
Q. And did those witnesses testify for the grand jury?
A. yes, they did.
Q. Were you present at the time of the grand jury?
A. No, I was not.
Q. You were not?
A. I was in the witness room, but I was not in the grand jury.
Q. I see. What was the result of the testimony given by the three witnesses to the grand jury?
A. As two of the witnesses exited, one was a secretary who had received instructions ~~~ and I think on some occasions had discussed with Barry Seal, the methodology. She was furious when she exited the grand jury, was very upset, indicated to me that she had not been allowed to furnish her evidence to the grand jury. ~~~ She was the secretary for Rich Mountain Aviation, who participated in the money laundering operation upon the instructions of Hampton, Evans.

Asa Hutchinson was close to George Bush and a big player during his campaign for President by giving speeches on his behalf. Few people knew as much about the drug smuggling and money laundering business as Asa. While I met George H.W. Bush when he was Vice President, I never met “W”. When I met “H.W.” he shook my hand and I said, “I didn’t catch your name.” He clasped my hand with both of his hands and broke out in laughter. We talked for a few minutes and that was that.

I lost respect for “W” after we both attended USAF Pilot Training. I flew fighters most of my career and “W” checked out in the F-102 with the Texas Air National Guard. In those days it cost the taxpayers about six million dollars to train a Fighter Pilot. I ended up flying 50 Combat Missions in Vietnam while “W” simply blew off his obligation. After the taxpayers spend the money to train an Air Force Pilot, the Pilot incurs a five year obligation to defend America. If I had quit flying and started politicking, I would have gone straight to jail. My daddy was a mechanic, not the Director of the CIA, so the double standard that existed then and exists today favors only the high and mighty. George W. Bush even refused to take his annual Flight Physical and moved out of state to help somebody during a political campaign. Finally, “W” returned to Texas to take the physical but never returned to the cockpit. He couldn’t take the chance of being sent to Vietnam and becoming a decorated combat pilot like his dad but he found time to become Commander in Chief.

Russell Mokhiber is the editor of the Corporate Crime Reporter, a weekly newsletter based in Washington, D.C. Russell interviewed Ari Fleischer, White House press secretary for President George W. Bush, from January 2001 to July 2003.

RUSSELL MOKHIBER – Ari, you said the other day that the United States is “set in stone against military coups of any kind.” And yet, there is a long history of the United States organizing coups against democratically elected leaders, including, Arbenz in Guatemala, Mossadegh in Iran, Allende in Chile and Lumumba in the Congo. So, when you said we are “set in stone against military coups of any kind,” were you announcing a new policy?

ARI FLEISCHER: Russell, I think the examples you use are interesting. I think when you talked about Iran, you just went back to 1954. President Bush came into office here in 2001. And one of the great prides and success stories of American politics has been that in the last 20 years, there has been a wonderful sea change in Central and South America, brought in large part, as a result of Otto Reich and Elliot Abrams and others — Ronald Reagan, George Bush — who worked very hard to bring democracy to the region. And as a result, there is a difference in the military in those regions.

Reich was a Cuban-American obsessed with overthrowing Fidel Castro’s regime and was also a big political supporter of President Bush’s brother and Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who needed strong support from Cubans in Florida in his re-election bid. Reich, along with fellow Reagan administration cohorts, Elliott Abrams and John Negroponte, were discredited for their covert activities and false assertions when the United States intervened in Central America in the 1980’s and ’90s, but were re-instated in prominent positions in the second Bush administration. They abhor Latin-American governments that are elected by the poor and working class people.

Abrams was convicted of lying to Congress about the Iran-Contra scandal, but was remarkably rehabilitated and recycled back into the second Bush administration as head of the “Office of Democracy and Human Rights.” Negroponte was appointed as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations in spite of being implicated as a friend of Honduran death squad leaders who committed atrocities against the people of Honduras while he was the U.S. Ambassador there. The most recent resurrection of this trio of renegades is the appointment of Otto Reich as Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs . . . On September 30, 1987 a Republican appointed comptroller general of the U.S. found that Reich had done things as director of the OPD that were “prohibited, covert propaganda activities, “beyond the range of acceptable agency public information activities….”

WASHINGTON POST: Sheriff Ari Fleischer was on duty Thursday and upset with Houston Chronicle reporter Bennett Roth. Bush that morning urged parents to talk more to their kids about the dangers of drugs. Roth, at Fleischer’s daily briefing, asked: “Ari, the president talked about parental involvement today. How much has he talked to his own daughters about both drugs and drinking? And given the fact that his own daughter was cited for underage drinking, isn’t that a sign that there’s only so much effect that a parent can have on their children’s behavior?” Fleischer responded brusquely: “No, I think, frankly, there are some issues where I think it’s very important for you all in the press corps to recognize that he is the president of the United States; he’s also a father. And the press corps has been very respectful in the past of treating family matters with privacy, and I’m certain that you’re going to do so again. I hope so.” Fleischer later called Roth to chastise him, telling him his question had been “noted in the building.”

JOEL SKOUSEN’S WORLD AFFAIRS BRIEF: Robert Mueller was responsible for the prosecution of Gen. Manuel Noriega of Panama, who was the CIA’s main money launderer for CIA operations in Panama. Even Congress knew of Noriega’s CIA connections. Senator Kerry said that Noriega “had been on the payroll and an employee of the CIA for many, many, many years” Noriega was taken down by the CIA and prosecuted because he was found to be taking a much larger cut out of CIA drug profits than was agreed upon. During the trial, the presiding judge ruled that Noriega could not enter into evidence any documents proving his relationship to the CIA over the years. Mueller helped cover up this major issue by silencing Noriega . . . Mueller presided over the prosecution of John Gotti, the alleged Mafia head of the Gambino family group. CIA agent Richard Beneke, in response to a question of whether or not the Gotti family had ties to the CIA, testified, “Yes. As far back as 1968 and early 1969, we had begun to launder money from organized crime families in New York. At that time, Mr. Gotti was an up and coming member of one of the families. We used to wash their money out overseas and put it in Switzerland in nice, safe places for them.”We do not know why the government turned on Gotti as a partner in crime. Perhaps he was also found guilty of skimming too much off the top.

Are you beginning to get the picture yet? Who could be trusted to run the Drug Enforcement Agency and not spill the beans? Only one of the most trusted Wise Monkeys, Asa Hutchinson, of course. George W. Bush’s dad was Vice President from 1981 until 1989 and President from 89 until 93. Clearly, “W” couldn’t have any skeletons pop out of the closet or have some rouge DEA Administrator get curious about our pretended War on Drugs!

One of my friends ran the Counter Drug efforts for the Air National Guard. I was in his office in the swamp when our government was tracking a Boeing 727 aircraft from the U.S. to an airport in Mexico. The highly coordinated effort between the U.S. and Mexican authorities were ready to pounce on the jet in Mexico. It was known to be carrying a lot of U.S. unmarked currency. With sirens blaring, the highly trained authorities chased the wrong aircraft and surrounded its surprised crew. Meanwhile, the 727 with the cash unloaded and disappeared into the Mexican night. We pretended to go after the Drug Cartels and they pretended to be scared.

Asa “Urkel” Hutchinson vanquished the drug moister so ineptly that he became the Father of the Transportation Security Agency. Pretending to solve problems so people would FEEL safe required a man like Asa. The United States managed to survive for 226 years, including two world wars, without a Department of Homeland Security. It took a BIG GOVERNMENT Republican to expand the bureaucracy and the swamp.

Here is what the new bureaucracy says it does: “The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, and our goal is clear – keeping America safe.”

When the TSA fondles little girls and grandmothers in wheelchairs, Americans FEEL safe; almost as safe as they feel when NSA spies on law abiding Americans and our best allies like Israel.

Unfortunately none of this big government road show has prevented a single terrorist attack or secured our 92,000 miles of coastline. During security tests, more than 90% of fake guns and bombs made it through TSA security undetected. I rarely fly on airlines because I am not content with feeling safe. I feel safe on private jets and have flown a couple of hundred hours on them. The real shame is that the United States could become secure like Israel but Little Satan is not politically correct. Israel profiles! There, I said it. Israeli leaders know that little girls don’t hijack airliners and they don’t hire pedophiles as airport security. They also have a sophisticated wall on their southern border with radar that can detect a vehicle several miles away and a person within a mile. The Israeli government likes to know who enters their country and what their intentions are. The willy-nilly U.S. homeland security would never satisfy the Israeli Citizens, not for a New York second.

Asa “Urkel” Hutchinson has fought President Trump since before he endorsed Little Marco. He often appears on MSNBC with his like-minded buddies and trashes our President. He fought against repealing and replacing Obamacare and refused to give the President’s Voter Fraud Commission the information they asked for from Arkansas. My guess is that the 60% of Arkansas voters who supported President Trump and several thousand who have wised up since, are not happy with Governor Hutchinson who has depended on 100% of the Democrats and his handful of RINOs to steamroll his liberal, socialist agenda through the Arkansas Legislature.

Many people are telling me they just didn’t know. The Republican Primary is in May. Will you make an effort to know who you’re voting for this time?

When President Trump talks about the Swamp, he’s not kidding! The good guys like Generals Petraeus and Flynn get the shaft while the seedy folks, like the Wise Monkeys, get the plum jobs and all the glory.

The IG System is Fraudulent!

December 14, 2017

 

Al Franken wanted to go before the fraudulent Senate Ethics Committee for good reason!

Surprise, the government Inspector General System is 1,000 times more fraudulent!

IG’s are not independent & almost NEVER substantiate fraud or criminal activity!

Whistleblowing is suicide!

Every federal employee or member of the Armed Forces knows that if they report fraud waste & abuse the IG will crucify them.

Reprisals against whistleblowers are a career ending certainty.

For 40 years I have begged for criminal investigations into the IG system!

FW&A costs taxpayers a trillion dollars!

Congress passed Whistleblower Protection Laws and later strengthened the laws but nothing has any effect on the absolute certainty of reprisals.

If you watched Rosenstein thumb his nose at Congress you got a tiny taste of the arrogance of the deep state.

Members of Congress who are appeased or comforted by IG Investigations are worse than fools!

Do you trust the FBI, DOJ, VA, EPA, IRS, TSA and State Department to investigate themselves?

Do you Understand the Brilliance of Donald Trump?

November 21, 2017

Most of the talking heads you watch on TV never managed a lemonade stand. This includes the Mainstream News Media, Congressmen, Hollywood Celebrities and Writers of every description. They have no idea what President Trump does on a daily basis or why he does it.

I, on the other hand, was given colossal responsibility in the government and also made a few dollars in a dozen business enterprises. Before I retired from the Air Force, I commanded a six billion dollar multi-national, joint Provisional Wing. I wrote the 2007 book, Top Gun Management. I walked the halls of the Pentagon, State Department and National Security Agency. I visited with Presidents, Generals, legendary Senators and billionaire businessmen.

What looks like pandemonium to the greenhorn looks like the New York Philharmonic Orchestra to me.

Watching Donald Trump maneuver through the Swamp, Saudi Palaces and World Capitals is to watch the Master at work. He does not lead from behind nor does he sway to and fro. Our President plays for keeps and does not flinch. He does not bluster, draw red lines or make idle threats.

Just two and a half months after taking the Presidential Oath of Office, President Trump ordered a cruise missile strike against Syria saying, “No child of God should ever suffer the horror of the chemical weapons attack Syria launched on its own people.” Don’t think for one second that despots failed to pay attention. That was a clear message that a new Sheriff had arrived. The World stood up and took notice.

China’s leaders had such low regard for Barack Obama they would not even provide a staircase for him to leave Air Force One during his chaotic arrival in Hangzhou before the start of the G20 Conference.

For the same Conference, Chinese authorities rolled out the red carpet for other leaders including India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, the South Korean President, Park Geun-hye, Brazil’s President, Michel Temer, and the British Prime Minister, Theresa May.

The leader of the world’s largest economy on his final tour of Asia was forced to disembark from Air Force One through a little-used exit in the plane’s belly after no rolling staircase was provided after he landed in the eastern Chinese city.

“The reception that President Obama and his staff got when they arrived here Saturday afternoon was bruising, even by Chinese standards,” the New York Times reported.

Jorge Guajardo, Mexico’s former ambassador to China, said he was convinced Obama’s treatment was part of a calculated snub, “These things do not happen by mistake. Not with the Chinese,” he said.

The Saudi Arabia visit when Barack Hussein Obama bowed down to King Abdullah in the palace stood in stark contrast to President Trump’s visit when King Salman met President Trump at the bottom of the steps of Air Force One and bowed to our President.

If Liberals and Never-Trumpers would pay attention, they might see how things work in the real world as opposed to the Swamp and Never-never-Land.

Trump’s ascension to the pinnacle of power in America was not unlike a Business Tycoon who just completed a large-scale acquisition and merger that brought together multiple smaller companies into one giant conglomerate.

After the merger, the CEO wants to put his or her own people in charge of everything. That’s what Obama did and why his Cabinet looked like a combination of the Dirty Dozen and the Keystone Cops.

Fundamental change cannot be done with a Magic Wand. All those smaller companies in the merger had their own executives – and, at least for the short term – a CEO needs to keep many of them around to keep things running as the blending progresses. So, you keep many of those executives around, letting them retain their own senior staff. You even appoint one of them – the head of the largest of the companies you acquired – to be the CEO of the conglomerate, and he pledges to get all the departments working together harmoniously.

After a well-oiled transition period, some of them are doing fine in the new conglomerate, while others are clearly causing trouble.

In fact, the one you appointed CEO, is clearly a disaster. And the newly merged departments are working against each other. Furthermore, you have good suspicion he is dealing in insider trading – nothing you can take to a prosecutor, but there is a lot of circumstantial evidence building up. Worse, he is not only doing his own dirty dealing, but it appears he may even be leaking intellectual property to your competitors, helping them take market share from you. Does that sound like Reince Priebus?

Clearly, ole Reince has to go – and go now.

The problem is, many of the senior employees in your conglomerate are loyal to him. If you just fire him and put in your own chosen CEO, you know you could get a lot of backlash from disgruntled employees. Knowing that in your business there is such a small profit-margin, you really can’t afford anything at all that threatens performance. So, what do you do?

You send for Batman, Superman or a Hatchet Man. The hatchet man is someone you bring in for sole purpose of slashing the problems and shaking things up over a very short period of time – but doing so in such a way that deflects any blame or blowback away from you. As soon as the problems are hacked away, the hatchet man leaves – taking the ire and resentment with him, leaving you free to bring in your new team for a fresh start.

This is what happens all the time in the business world. And Donald Trump is a businessman. He knows how this works. He has lived this time and time again. We’ve seen him do it on “The Apprentice.” We’ve read about it in his books (I have an autographed copy). This should not be a surprise to anyone except for Liberals and Never-Trumpers who live in their own bubble.

When Trump won the election, he essentially performed the political equivalent of an acquisition and merger. He brought together different political factions – establishment Republicans, conservatives, Tea Party, religious right, moderates, independents, cross-overs – into one winning political coup. For some, it was a hostile takeover. So, if they were going to be dragged into it against their will, they would sure as hell resist.

Priebus, as the then-chairman of the Republican National Committee, was hired as White House Chief of Staff to be the sort of post-merger CEO. It was his job to bring all these political factions together and get them to work harmoniously but he failed. Worse, there is ample evidence to suggest he not only failed, but also worked against Trump and the Trump agenda. Look at the leaks. Look at all the chaos. Look at all the bureaucracy continuing to work at odds with the president. Priebus – and a number of other people around him – had to go.

Donald Trump had known for some time that Priebus was a disaster. He was going to give him his six-month trial period – that’s a fairly common thing in the private business sector. After that, heads were going to roll. But Trump himself didn’t want to be the Hatchet man. He needed to be able to lead after the bloodbath. So, what did he do? He turned to an old friend he has known for many years – someone with nothing to lose, someone who can step in with a hatchet and hack away, someone who can, after the hacking, just walk away from it all and leave the slate clean. He turned to Anthony Scaramucci.

So what does Scaramucci do? He comes in swinging. He fires a few people to make a quick example. He tells others they can “resign” right now if they want to – but if not, they will be fired. Others see what is going on and quit of their own accord.

That problem CEO, Priebus!? Oh, the new “structure” of the organization puts Scaramucci in direct competition with Priebus – and Priebus throws up his hands and says “fine, I’m out of here.” And Scaramucci does it all in a way that is spectacularly visible to draw all the fire from Trump critics.

So how does it all end up? It ends up with Trump putting in his new CEO – retired Marine general John Kelly – the one he probably wanted from day one, but held back – and the new CEO-White House chief of staff says “OK, Scaramucci – you are no longer needed here.”

General Kelly now has a clean slate to start fresh – and Scaramucci takes all the heat. Where the Left and Never-Trumpers see a circus freak-show, realists from the business world see a perfectly executed post-merger Hatchet-man job.

The political wonks see General Kelly taking command as the first sane thing to happen in this administration. They don’t realize they’ve been played, and played perfectly. And soon we will likely see some other changes that move the Executive Branch further towards what Trump has wanted it to be from day one. And then watch the real swamp-drainer get to work.

Oh, and Scaramucci? He gets a sweet deal out of all this – no doubt, he and his friend Donald Trump talked it all out first.

With Priebus out and Kelly in, things will settle down. Pretty soon, all the Left will have to say is “we just don’t like Trump’s policies.” Once that happens, the Left is dead because Trump’s policies are policies that most Americans actually agree with. We should put America first. We must build back our economy; create jobs; strengthen the military; protect the borders. Outside a few densely-populated Liberal strongholds, like New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and – of course – Washington, D.C., in general, Americans agree with all of Trump’s plan. So, when all the Left has to say is “Trump’s policies are wrong,” the Left will literally be telling most of America, “you people are stupid and Deplorable.”

In 2020, running for his second term, President Donald Trump will win 47 states, just like Ronald Reagan did. The Left will be scratching their heads and wondering what just happened, while some may become Trump’s Democrats. And you’ll be able to look back and say, “hey, some of us told you all this back then, in 2017.”

Some of the Democrats can see this scenario already and they look at the sky and scream or they chant, “Impeach him, impeach him.” At the end of two terms, the snowflakes will still be staring at Trump like a calf looking at a new gate but they will also be scratching their heads and seeking a safe space.

Remember, the goal is to Make America Great Again and put America first!

What Happens in DC, Stays in DC

November 16, 2017

I think you folks back home can appreciate the need to protect the Nation’s Secrets in the Nation’s Capitol Building. The hard working taxpayers should not be burdened with the scandals in the Swamp including Congressmen chasing Interns through offices and around the hallowed statues of Segregationists like Robert Byrd and J. William Fulbright!

The Congressmen sometimes work 20 hours a month and, we all know, all work and no play makes for very dull Congressmen.

Therefore, our esteemed Congressmen established a taxpayer funded slush fund that allows our Congressmen to commit the crime of sexual harassment, pay off anybody who might expose the crime and live happily ever after.

I know, you thought our Congressmen couldn’t accomplish anything just because they couldn’t fix healthcare, cut taxes, cut reckless spending or bring those to justice who traded our uranium to Russia for some magic beans.

Silly you! Our Congressmen not only make laws that hog-tie hard working Americans while quadrupling our healthcare insurance premiums, they also were able to divert tax dollars to that neat little slush fund. So far the fund has paid out fifteen million dollars in hush money. Those fifteen million dollars could have built a Bridge to Nowhere or bought bureaucrats 250 Sport Utility Vehicles to cruise around the Swamp and take two hour lunch breaks.

The latest Gallup Congress Approval Poll stands at 16% but we all know the polls are rigged. My sense is that the number is closer to 7%?

How do you suppose Congress was able to approve that slush fund? Was it approved on an unlit airport tarmac or on the Floor of the United States House of Representatives? How did the Congressional Budget Office markup the slush fund? How did Paul Ryan vote? Mitch McConnell? John McCain? Bob Corker?

Now that this criminal activity has been exposed, what are the chances Congressional Hearings will be held and a Special Prosecutor Appointed?

Congress has been silent while President Trump has been raked over the coals; will you allow this to be swept under the rug? Will you demand to know who was paid off, what for and how much?

I am just one old retired fighter pilot but I am sick and tired of the secrecy, corruption and debauchery that is rampant in the Capitol Building, Cannon Building, Ford Building, Longworth Building, O’Neill Building, Rayburn Building, Russell Senate Office Building, Dirksen Senate Office Building and Hart Senate Office Building.

Congress can investigate General Flynn and President Trump while they thumb their noses at the Constitution!!!! Nobody is accountable in the Swamp? Do you care?

HOW LONG WILL ARKANSANS BE CONTENT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HEAP?

November 5, 2017

During the Arkansas Primary Election, Governor Hutchinson and most of the Republican Legislators endorsed Marco Rubio. Little Marco carried only two counties, Pulaski and Benton.

Almost none of the Legislators endorsed Donald Trump who carried 59 counties. On the Democrat side, Bernie Sanders won only one county during what we now know was a rigged election.

During the General Election, also likely heavily rigged, the registered vote was Donald Trump 60.57% to 33.65% for Hillary Clinton. Nobody knows what the actual vote was, likely more than 70% for President Trump.

The largest county with the Capital City of Little Rock and one of the most dangerous cities in America went for Hillary with 56.06%. Little Rock is the Swamp in Arkansas.

The first action Asa Hutchinson took as Arkansas Governor was to embrace socialized medicine. His nephews in the Legislature threw their support to their uncle Asa even though Senator Hendren had warned that the Obamacare Private Option would gobble up the entire Arkansas Budget.

Well, since 2010 the uninsured rate in Arkansas has jumped by almost 10% and next year the Obamacare Silver Plan premiums will jump by 23%.

Governor Hutchinson has fought tooth and nail against the President and for Obamacare against the will of the good people of Arkansas who elected him. I am including a link to a video of Governor Hutchinson’s appearance on MSNBC, yes, MSNBC where Asa Hutchison fits right in with the other Left Wing Liberals. Do you support Governor Hutchinson’s fight against our President and for big insurance companies and the hospital lobby?

Who owns Governor Hutchinson? His major contributions are Uncoded so we can’t know for sure. However, after Uncoded Contributions he received $207,412.58 from Lawyers and Lobbyists. The top sector was Finance, Insurance & Real Estate at $357,731.27. From Health he received $192,398.10 and from Health Professionals he netted $82,196.66. Hospitals and Nursing Homes chipped in $67,483.

So how is Arkansas doing now that so much money is going to politicians instead of healthcare? According to a CBS News report two months ago, Arkansas was ranked the fourth worst state for healthcare behind Louisiana, Mississippi and Alaska. That means Arkansas has a high heart disease rate, cancer rate, low number of dentists, etc. When it comes to life expectancy, quality of life, and overall health coverage, Arkansas is nothing to write home about.

The next time you walk into an Arkansas hospital or clinic and they hand you a clipboard that has been passed around between sick people, think about what kind of germs and diseases that clipboard contains. You won’t be handed a clipboard in Minnesota where the life expectancy is more than five years longer than Arkansas. Minnesota is second to Hawaii with the longest life expectancy, Arkansas is 46th.

Yes, Arkansas has a Health Department but what are they doing? How clean are our hospitals? Do they disinfect rooms or just change sheets? Is it cheaper to ply politicians with big bucks or to put patient healthcare first? Why do we need ten administrators for every Medical Doctor and why do we shackle Doctors with two hours a day of documentation? That’s a rhetorical question! The reason, as we all know, is because Lawyers make a fortune suing Doctors! Governor Hutchinson is a Lawyer and former Lobbyist!

Can Arkansas do better? Probably not with this Lawyer Governor! What could you do if you lived five years longer? What could you do if you had better healthcare at a much lower cost? That is what President Trump wants to give you and what Governor Hutchinson is trying to deny you!

Do you think Apple, Wal-Mart or Amazon could create a nationwide healthcare insurance company that could compete with Blue Cross? In a New York minute! I remember when the Blue Cross CEO in Massachusetts got a multimillion dollar pay raise after losing a huge percentage of customers. Multiply that by 50 states! There is no incentive for insurance companies to cut costs. Bean counters are paid more than Surgeons and CEOs are paid millions. The Wal-Mart World Headquarters in Bentonville would simply not be fancy enough for any major insurance company in America! Those Blue Cross Skyscrapers are not adding one second to your life expectancy but they are picking your pockets.

The aircraft pictured is just one jet owned by Blue Cross. This one belongs to South Carolina Blue Cross. It’s barely 150 miles completely across South Carolina! Do you hear a giant sucking sound? It’s the sound of insurance companies empowered by politicians sucking the money out of your pockets! Can you picture an insurance executive or Governor Asa Hutchinson riding in Sam Walton’s old Ford pickup?

My Fellow Arkansans, if you are content being stuck at the bottom of the heap, KEEP IT UP! Keep voting for slick career politicians who represent Lawyers, Lobbyists and Insurance Companies. We’ll keep the Nation’s highest taxes and lowest wages and keep coughing up money to buy new tires because Arkansas potholes have potholes. Arkansas will keep the 55 mph speed limit, not because it is safer or because it will save gas but because traffic fines are a major additional revenue stream for the Arkansas speed trap. Arkansas will keep its bloated bureaucracies and bureaucrats will keep driving SUVs.

Trump was Right Again, the Election was Rigged!

November 2, 2017

Donna Brazile was employed by CNN when she acquired the Presidential Debate Questions and shared them with Hillary Rodham Clinton. Donna has had an epiphany and written her tell all book eviscerating everybody except herself. That’s what Democrats do.

In her forthcoming book, former DNC chair Donna Brazile absolutely unloads on her Democrat Party, blasting Barack Obama for decimating the DNC’s finances, savaging the leadership of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and confirming that Hillary Clinton’s campaign had the party in its pocket long before she was its nominee. You’ll likely recall Donald Trump’s frequent play to Bernie supporters during the general election, claiming that the Democratic establishment “rigged” the nominating process against Sanders and for Clinton. He probably didn’t even realize how absolutely accurate that characterization was. Here is an extended excerpt from Brazile’s book, and my my, is it explosive.

First, she takes a hatchet to the state of the party heading into the 2016 election:

My predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt…Debbie was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn’t have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was. The Saturday morning after the convention in July, I called Gary Gensler, the chief financial officer of Hillary’s campaign. He wasted no words. He told me the Democratic Party was broke and $2 million in debt. “What?” I screamed. “I am an officer of the party and they’ve been telling us everything is fine and they were raising money with no problems.” That wasn’t true, he said. Officials from Hillary’s campaign had taken a look at the DNC’s books. Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign and had been paying that off very slowly. Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016…If I didn’t know about this, I assumed that none of the other officers knew about it, either. That was just Debbie’s way. In my experience she didn’t come to the officers of the DNC for advice and counsel. She seemed to make decisions on her own and let us know at the last minute what she had decided, as she had done when she told us about the hacking only minutes before the Washington Post broke the news.

I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails. But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie. So I followed the money…By September 7…I had found my proof and it broke my heart…The [Clinton] campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearing house. Under FEC law, an individual can contribute a maximum of $2,700 directly to a presidential campaign. But the limits are much higher for contributions to state parties and a party’s national committee.

Individuals who had maxed out their $2,700 contribution limit to the campaign could write an additional check for $353,400 to the Hillary Victory Fund—that figure represented $10,000 to each of the thirty-two states’ parties who were part of the Victory Fund agreement—$320,000—and $33,400 to the DNC. The money would be deposited in the states first, and transferred to the DNC shortly after that. Money in the battleground states usually stayed in that state, but all the other states funneled that money directly to the DNC, which quickly transferred the money to Brooklyn. “Wait,” I said. “That victory fund was supposed to be for whoever was the nominee, and the state party races. You’re telling me that Hillary has been controlling it since before she got the nomination?” Gary said the campaign had to do it or the party would collapse.
The timeline is damning. Brazile writes that the ‘victory fund’ agreement that basically placed the Democratic National Committee under the control of Hillary Clinton’s campaign was signed months before a single primary vote was cast. This is extraordinary:

The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings. I had been wondering why it was that I couldn’t write a press release without passing it by Brooklyn. Well, here was the answer…When the party chooses the nominee, the custom is that the candidate’s team starts to exercise more control over the party…This victory fund agreement, however, had been signed in August 2015, just four months after Hillary announced her candidacy and nearly a year before she officially had the nomination.

“If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead,” she writes, stating the obvious. I’ll note that this extraordinary scheme somehow didn’t make it into What Happened. How strange. Finally, Brazile describes her phone call revealing these discoveries to Bernie — placed on September 7, in the thick of the general election’s home stretch:

I had to keep my promise to Bernie. I was in agony as I dialed him. Keeping this secret was against everything that I stood for, all that I valued as a woman and as a public servant. “Hello, senator. I’ve completed my review of the DNC and I did find the cancer,” I said. “But I will not kill the patient.”…I told Bernie I had found Hillary’s Joint Fundraising Agreement. I explained that the cancer was that she had exerted this control of the party long before she became its nominee. Had I known this, I never would have accepted the interim chair position, but here we were with only weeks before the election. Bernie took this stoically. He did not yell or express outrage. Instead he asked me what I thought Hillary’s chances were. The polls were unanimous in her winning but what, he wanted to know, was my own assessment? I had to be frank with him. I did not trust the polls, I said. I told him I had visited states around the country and I found a lack of enthusiasm for her everywhere. I was concerned about the Obama coalition and about millennials…When I hung up the call to Bernie, I started to cry, not out of guilt, but out of anger. We would go forward. We had to.

These revelations should send shock-waves through the Democratic Left. Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump repeatedly suggested that Hillary Clinton’s party had secretly manipulated the rules of the game to make sure that anyone who challenged her would be crushed. They were right. And the millions of people who voted for — and donated to Bernie Sanders — were betrayed and lied to. I’ll leave you with this: Brazile casts herself as a truth-finding pillar of integrity in this account, but beyond sitting on this information for more than a year, didn’t she also play an active role in pro-Hillary rigging?

FOR EVERY MEDICAL DOCTOR THERE ARE 10 ADMINISTRATORS

October 29, 2017

Doctors’ fees account for only 8 cents of the healthcare dollar.

And apparently, Congress is shying away from federal-level reform. The Republicans want all torts reform and such at the State level (this is per the American College of Surgeons Policy Office). While it makes sense for States to take the lead in many governmental issues, the current healthcare situation is out of control, painful and unworkable.

On top of that, the current FEDERALLY mandated requirements for physician documentation are ONLY linked to reimbursement with NO IDENTIFIABLE link to better patient outcomes or improved quality of care. Nevertheless, they DO add an average of two hours to physician’s and surgeon’s workdays while decreasing the actual amount of time patients and doctors spend together. Do you think big government regulations help or hinder patient care? Mounds of documentation have no real purpose beyond torts protection.

The result of added regulations and requirements for doctors is suffering healthcare and skyrocketing costs. More regulations mean new jobs for administrators and other nonmedical personnel while decreasing the value of good medical care per dollar spent.

In many cases, hospital and insurance company bean counters and administrators are paid more than physicians and surgeons while they have much less than half the professional education.

I remember when the Blue Cross CEO of a single state received a multimillion dollar pay raise after a huge drop in customers. Multiply that by 50 states and the District of Columbia.

If Congress does not get on the same page with President Trump, we may have to receive our healthcare from bean counters and administrators?

Should President Trump Crush Mueller?

October 24, 2017

Mueller knew EVERYTHING about the Bill Clinton Russian collusion including meeting with Putin at his home!

Why do you think Mueller was selected to investigate President Trump?

Turns out Billy was a very busy boy meeting on the unlit tarmac in the middle of the night and collecting over a hundred million dollars to funnel 20% of weapons grade United States uranium to Russia.

Tell Vladimir I will French kiss him after the rigged election!

Why are BOTH Clinton’s, Mueller, Obama, Lynch, Holder and Rosenstein not locked up at Leavenworth Federal Prison?

The most lawless administration in the history of the United States has permanently destroyed the credibility of the FBI, NSA, IRS, DOJ, CIA, State Department, BLM, EPA and VA just for starters. Yes, these crooks, who called Bowe Bergdahl an American hero, fundamentally changed America with full support from CNN, MSNBC, PBS, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and Hollywood celebrities.

These Never Trumpers have done everything within their power to start Civil War II and bring down America.

The only thing standing between us and the Philistines is the modern day David with a slingshot. God gave us Donald J. Trump even though America does not deserve him.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team running the Russia collusion probe are being accused by fellow attorneys of employing aggressive and questionable tactics in past cases, potentially putting a dent in his straight-shooter image.

As the investigation heats up and key players like former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and press secretary Sean Spicer are interviewed by investigators, several attorneys with experience in federal cases spoke out with their concerns this week.

Harvey Silverglate, a criminal defense attorney in Massachusetts, wrote an opinion piece accusing Mueller of once trying to entrap him when Mueller was acting U.S. attorney in Boston. Most Americans cannot imagine how treacherous and despicable the swamp creatures really are. If you’re looking for a friend in Washington, get a dog.

“I have known Mueller during key moments of his career as a federal prosecutor,” Silverglate wrote for WGBH News. “My experience has taught me to approach whatever he does in the Trump investigation with a requisite degree of skepticism or, at the very least, extreme caution.”

According to Silverglate, Mueller once sent someone into Silverglate’s office offering to give false testimony for a client. Silverglate said he turned the offer down and noticed the man was wearing a wire.

“Years later I ran into Mueller, and I told him of my disappointment in being the target of a sting where there was no reason to think that I would knowingly present perjured evidence to a court,” Silverglate wrote. “Mueller, half-apologetically, told me that he never really thought that I would suborn perjury, but that he had a duty to pursue the lead given to him.”

A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment.

Sidney Powell, a former federal prosecutor, also took aim at Andrew Weissmann, the prosecutor tapped by Mueller to help lead the investigation, in a piece this week titled, “Judging by Mueller’s staffing choices, he may not be very interested in justice.”

Powell accused Weissmann, once the director of the Enron Task Force, of “prosecutorial overreach” in past cases and said it could signal what’s to come for President Trump and his associates in the Russia probe.

“What was supposed to have been a search for Russia’s cyberspace intrusions into our electoral politics has morphed into a malevolent mission targeting friends, family and colleagues of the president,” Powell wrote in The Hill. “The Mueller investigation has become an all-out assault to find crimes to pin on them — and it won’t matter if there are no crimes to be found. This team can make some.”

President Trump should apologize to all real swamps.  Absolutely nobody can be trusted in the DC Swamp, it’s more like Hell.

Would you trust Mueller to investigate Mother Teresa?  I trust a rattlesnake more than Mueller, Lynch, Comey and Hillary combined.  As for Sessions, I wonder if he is the Attorney General or just the Attorney General Monitor.

Lawless Government ~ The Eric Holder Legacy

October 20, 2017

Attorney General Eric Holder became wealthy as a government employee. His $11,500,000 net worth allowed him to enjoy the life of the rich and famous but his flings were mostly paid for by We the Taxpayers.

On a pleasant Saturday one summer, Eric Holder, his daughters, their boyfriends and two security officers boarded a government-owned Gulfstream V and jetted off to New York for the Belmont Stakes Thoroughbred horse race.

Even for personal trips, the attorney general never flew commercial. For security reasons, Holder flew a government jet.

That one day trip to Elmont, N.Y., ended up costing the government $14,440 according to the government but the actual cost was probably much more?

But Holder only had to reimburse the government $955 for flying him and four passengers to the final leg of the Triple Crown horse races that day.

That’s because he only has to pay the equivalent cost of a coach commercial airline ticket for each non-law enforcement passenger — not the total cost to charter the plane.

During his trip, Holder and his entourage met with Ron Turcotte, the retired race jockey who famously rode Triple Crown winner Secretariat in 1973. The attorney general also stopped for photos with spectators, including with one attorney decked out in a seersucker suit and bow-tie.

While the Department of Justice declined to identify his travel companions that day, Holder’s daughters, Brooke and Maya, went on the trip, and brought along two friends. A photo taken that day shows the two young women, wearing summer dresses, and their male companions, in suits.

The Gulfstream V flies up to Mach .885, up to 51,000 feet and has a 6,500 nautical miles range. It typically accommodates four crew and 14 passengers. The all-weather, long-range, high speed jet powered by two Rolls-Royce BR 710-A2 turbofan engines with thrust reversers, could have flown all the way across Europe to Iran non-stop from Washington, DC.

Holder’s usage of Gulfstream jets has made news before: The New York Post reported that Holder in 2010 reimbursed the government $421 for a $15,000 flight.

The Government Accountability Office released a report saying these government jets used by Holder and FBI Director Robert Mueller were meant to be used for counter-terrorism actions.

“These luxury jets were supposedly needed for counterterrorism, but it turns out that they were used almost two-thirds of the time for jet-setting executive travel,” Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley said. “Nobody disputes that the Attorney General and the FBI Director should have access to the secure communications, but, for instance, there’s no reason they can’t take a less expensive mode of transportation, or cut their personal travel.”

Can you imagine Attorney General Jeff Sessions jetting off to the horse races and living high on the taxpayer’s dime?

Holder graduated from Columbia Law School and went straight to work for the Dept of Justice from 1976-1988. For the next five years, holder worked as a US federal judge, before President Clinton appointed him US Attorney from Washington DC. Three years later Clinton again appointed him Deputy Attorney General where he served until 2001.

During the entire Bush administration, Eric Holder worked at a DC law firm whose main clients included Merck Pharma and UBS bank. He was an early backer of candidate Barack Obama in 2008 over Hillary Clinton and a major fundraising bundler for the future President. When President Obama took office, he appointed Holder US Attorney General.

Eric Holder’s scandals

Contempt of Congress – On June 28, 2012, Eric Holder became the first and only US Attorney General in American history to be held in Contempt of Congress on both civil and criminal grounds. The US House vote was 255-67, with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and 16 other Democrats walking out in protest and refusing to vote. President Obama called the action “politically motivated” and cited Executive Privilege for refusing to remove his own Attorney General. It then fell on Eric Holder’s own Justice Dept to prosecute him, which it declined to do.

Black Power – Eric Holder’s earliest scandal dates back to his college days at Columbia. There, he was campus leader of a black power organization and a public supporter of the Black Panther Party. He organized sit-ins at the school demanding that the ROTC office be officially renamed in honor of Malcolm X.

Fort Hood cover-up – After the 2009 Fort Hood massacre by US Army Major Nidal Hasan which took 13 lives, the Justice Dept report on the incident refused to mention Hasan’s extreme Islamic beliefs and instead ruled the mass shooting a workplace incident, not an act of terror.

Spying on Associated Press – The Justice Dept was caught spying on Associated Press by collecting months worth of phone records at the news wire, as well as the home phones of reporters and editors. The telephone records the DoJ secretly investigated included the phones at the AP’s offices in Washington DC, New York, Hartford, and even the AP’s phone inside the US House of Representatives.

Spying on Fox News – The DoJ monitored the personal email and phone of a Fox News reporter, as well as the Fox News phones in New York and Washington. The Justice Dept said the news outlet had temporarily lost its press freedom when its reporter received classified information from a CIA whistleblower.

War on Gun Owners – AG Holder has said that his interpretation of the US Constitution is that the Second Amendment guaranteeing the right to keep and bear arms only applies to the Militia. And to him, the Militia is the modern day National Guard and Reserves. Researchers have pointed out that in every instance where state and local authorities have sought the legal advice from the DoJ on proposed gun control laws, the Justice Dept has approved every single one.

Protecting Black Power and Voter Intimidation – On Election Day in 2008, the New Black Panther Party had set up at Philadelphia polling places, threatening white voters, hurling racial slurs and stopping white voters from voting. The tactics were caught on video and the assailants were identified. After a national outrage, the DoJ refused to take action on either the hate crimes or the Voting Rights violations.

Stimulus Program – Out of President Obama’s $800 billion 2009 ‘Stimulus Program’, AG Holder was handed $1 billion of the money to be handed out to local law enforcement officials across the country. Most of the stimulus money turned out to be used as kick-backs to Obama campaign contributors, including Eric Holder who himself was a top campaign bundler for the 2008 Obama campaign.

Foreigners voting in US Elections – Through his entire tenure, the Attorney General has steadfastly insisted that voters not be required to prove their identity when casting a ballot. The AG publicly touts that his DoJ has challenged two dozen state laws and Governor’s executive orders requiring voters to show an official ID before voting.

Foreign Terrorists have Rights – The DoJ declared that foreign terrorists captured almost anywhere other than a military battlefield were entitled to the same civil rights as US citizens.

Buying the Justice Dept – In his book ‘Extortion’, author Peter Schweizer details how President Obama chose the people who would head his Justice Dept – he sold the positions. ‘When President Obama established his Justice Department staff after the 2008 election, something unprecedented happened,’ Schweizer writes, ‘For the first time, at least half a dozen senior positions were occupied by individuals who had been campaign bundlers (fund raisers) for a presidential candidate, including not only Attorney General Eric Holder but also senior officials who dealt with criminal and civil prosecutions.’ Those high level Justice Dept appointees who are accused of buying their jobs are, ‘Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli, Deputy Associate Attorney General Karol Mason, and Associate Attorney General Tony West.’

Stealing 1,000,000 American Homes – Immediately after the housing collapse of 2007 and the economic collapse of 2008, America’s largest mortgage lenders began criminally foreclosing on hundreds of thousands of American families without cause and using ‘robo-signing machines’. Most didn’t even have mortgages, much less with those banks. Sheriff’s across the country removed a half million American families at gun point for no legitimate reason, only because banks had fraudulently filed foreclosure papers. The number of victims was so large, the DoJ cut off new claimants in 2012 when the number of properties stolen by six Wall Street banks hit 750,000. Since then, hundreds of thousands more families have been refused any justice or reimbursement at all by AG Holder. And for the 750,000 families the Justice Dept sued the banks for and settled with, the banks were ordered to pay each family an average of $2,000 each – $2,000 as total reimbursement for a $100,000 home criminally stolen, and all the furniture and possessions inside when the bank and police forced the families into the street. The settlement negotiated by the Justice Dept also bars the victims from ever suing the banks to get their money back. The five banks that stole one million American homes and businesses and were protected by AG Holder and the DoJ were Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, and Ally Financial.

Prosecuting Journalists – When Anonymous hackers leaked documents from Defense Dept contractors showing that the corporation had a program to spy on the American people inside and outside their homes, a number of news outlets covered the story. Three, including the New York Times, The Guardian and ProPublica, along with a handful of freelance journalists, included links to the leaked material online where it was posted by Anonymous for the whole world to see. The DoJ arrested and prosecuted one freelance reporter, charging him with 17 different criminal counts, all because he included the same website link that the other publications published for their readers.

Protecting UBS Bank – When the DoJ was forced to sue UBS bank for defrauding its customers, AG Holder had to recuse himself because UBS was his former client when he worked at a Washington law firm.

Protecting Illegal Immigrants – In 2010, the Arizona Legislature passed a law giving its State Police the authority to check the immigration status of anyone police suspected of being here illegally. The DoJ sued the state of Arizona to overturn the law, insisting it was the DoJ’s privilege to enforce the country’s immigration laws, not the states.

Jon Corzine and MF Global Connection – Former Democratic New Jersey US Senator Jon Corzine left office to lead the financial firm MF Global, where he stole, pocketed or gambled away $1.6 billion he authorized taking from customers’ bank accounts. The bank’s law firm at the time was Covington & Burlington. Both AG Holder and Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer were recent employees of that firm. The DoJ chose Associate Attorney General Tony West to prosecute Corzine and MF Global. West came from the firm Morrison & Foerester, which was handling MF Global’s assets at the time.

DoJ Hiring Discrimination – In 2011, documents were revealed showing that AG Holder and the Justice Dept’s Civil Rights Division used political litmus tests to hire employees. After President Obama’s election in 2008, Holder publicly announced that the Justice Department was “going to be looking for people who share our values.”

FBI Assassination Plot of Occupy Wall St leaders – In 2011, two separate FBI offices – Houston and Jacksonville – published internal memos detailing a proposal to identify, photograph and assassinate Occupy Wall Street leaders using snipers. MIT students sued for the details and won. But the DoJ only turned over partial excerpts of 5 of the 17 known FBI documents on the secret project. AG Holder has refused to release the remaining documents or explain the secret assassination program at all.

Lying to Congress – In 2011, the DoJ admitted to providing false testimony to Congress in their investigation of the Justice Dept and Fast and Furious.

Assassinating American Citizens – With the targeted killing of Americans beginning in 2011, President Obama became the first President to order the death of an American citizen without charge, trial or conviction. He went on to assassinate an American child using the same secret targeted killing program. AG Holder not only publicly approved the President’s legal authority, but personally endorsed it.

Fast and Furious – In 2012, the US House voted AG Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over thousands of documents exposing the true account of the DoJ’s secret gun trafficking operation which supplied over 2,000 military weapons to Mexican drug cartels. The gun-running operation began in 2009 and was run out of the Phoenix US Attorney’s office along with the BATF.

Protecting Mexican Drug Lords – In 2012, national media outlets confirmed that the drug lord and prime target of the DoJ’s secret Fast and Furious operation, Manuel Celis-Acosta, was actually taken into custody by the Justice Dept twice during the program. But both times the DoJ released him without charges.

Anti-white prosecutions – In 2013, when the violent ‘knockout game’ trend was circulating social media, the DoJ got involved and prosecuted a perpetrator for hate crimes. But while the dozens of videoed attackers were all black and admitted targeting white victims, AG Holder found the only known white perpetrator and charged him instead.

Too Big to Jail – In 2013, AG Holder testified before Congress answering America’s question of why not a single banker went to jail for the criminal activity that led to the global economic collapse in 2008. He explained that Wall Street financial institutions had become too big and too important. He freely admitted that the Justice Department had its hands tied and couldn’t prosecute any of the banks for fear that it would lead to their collapse and that would lead to another global financial crash.

Spying on Americans – In 2012, two US Senators warned the American people that they’d be horrified if they knew how President Obama and AG Holder were interpreting and executing the Patriot Act. Forbidden by law from telling America themselves, the US Senators called on the AG to declassify the DoJ’s interpretation of the counter-terrorism law. AG Holder refused. The ACLU sued and the Supreme Court agreed. The DoJ still refuses.

Protecting Senators Reid and Lee – In 2012, the DoJ announced it would not get involved in a criminal investigation of US Senators Harry Reid and Mike Lee. In a multi-state criminal scandal that already forced the Utah Attorney General to resign, local Republican and Democrat District Attorneys asked the DoJ for help because the two accused criminals are US Senators. AG Eric Holder refused. After ABC News broke the story, one outlet described the criminal accusations against Senators Reid and Lee as, ‘a massive crime ring that involves gambling, bribery, kickbacks and influence peddling.’

Protecting the Director of the Office of National Intelligence – In 2013, ODNI Director James Clapper testified to Congress that the NSA isn’t collecting massive amounts of intelligence on all Americans as Edward Snowden’s leaks revealed. He later admitted that his testimony was a lie, but that in the interest of national security, he was above the law and not answerable to Congress. A number of Congressmen called on AG Holder to charge Clapper with Contempt of Congress. Eric Holder refused.

War on Medical Marijuana Patients – Even though medical marijuana is legal on the state, county and local level in 23 states and DC, the DoJ has led hundreds of military-style raids on legal medical marijuana pharmacies across the country. Rather than target drug cartels and illegal drug dealers, the DoJ has violently arrested hundreds of cancer victims, AIDS patients, dying senior citizens and war wounded.

War on Whistleblowers – In place of investigating criminal acts in government exposed by whistleblowers, the DoJ has instead prosecuted the whistleblowers. At last count, six government employees have been arrested and charged, more than all other administrations combined.

Giving Nukes to Iran – In 2000, the CIA accidentally gave blueprints for a nuclear bomb to Iran. Shortly after, a reporter from the NY Times was given the details by a CIA whistleblower. The Times refused to violate the government-imposed black-out of the story. So in 2006, the reporter published the information in a book he authored. AG Holder is prosecuting him under the Espionage Act for telling the American people.

Protecting Wall Street Banks – After six years, the DoJ has not put a single banker in prison over the economic collapse of 2008. While many of the same banks were given slaps on the wrist for causing the housing collapse a year earlier, many more banks were fleeced by the Justice Department for billions of dollars in civil penalties, paid to the Dept of Justice. In exchange for massive payoffs, no criminal charges were ever filed against anyone and few victims among the American people ever got their money back.

Protecting Rogue IRS Employees – After countless acts of admitted perjury by IRS directors and managers over the targeting of conservative political organizations by the agency, and the revelations that all the emails and computer records covering the time in question and all the IRS employees in question, have all crashed and self-destructed, AG Eric Holder still refuses to appoint a special prosecutor.


It appears that Holder and President Obama had a secret deal in which each would protect members of the Executive Branch, including each other, from being brought to justice. Clearly, both men enjoyed positions far above the law and committed repeated acts that would have landed other people straight in prison. Team Obama and Holder poured gasoline on riots across America while peddling hate and dissension everywhere they showed up. The Holder administration is a case study in lawless government that will never be forgotten. Exactly what one would expect when turning the government over to radicals.

Meet Rush Limbaugh

October 14, 2017

Rush Limbaugh lives on the beach on the Atlantic Ocean in Palm Beach, Florida, 64 miles from the Bahamas and 10 miles from Mar-a-Lago. His EIB Studios are close by as is his $54 million jet airplane. It is estimated that his net worth is half a billion dollars.

Rush Hudson Limbaugh III was born January 12, 1951 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, the son of Mildred Carolyn “Millie” and Rush Hudson Limbaugh, Jr. His father was a lawyer and a U.S. fighter pilot who served in the China Burma India Theater of World War II flying B-25’s, P-51s and B-17s. After the war he trained pilots before becoming a Lawyer. His mother was a native of Searcy, Arkansas. The name “Rush” was originally chosen for his grandfather to honor the maiden name of family member Edna Rush.

His family has many Lawyers, including his grandfather, father and brother David. His uncle, Stephen N. Limbaugh, Sr. is a federal judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. His cousin, Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr., is currently a judge in the same court, appointed by George W. Bush. Rush Limbaugh, Sr., Limbaugh’s grandfather, was a Missouri prosecutor, judge, special commissioner, member of the Missouri House of Representatives from 1930 until 1932, and longtime president of the Missouri Historical Society. The Federal Courthouse in Cape Girardeau is named for Limbaugh’s grandfather Rush.

Limbaugh began his career in radio as a teenager in 1967 in his hometown of Cape Girardeau, using the name Rusty Sharpe. Limbaugh graduated from Cape Girardeau, Missouri Central High School in 1969. He played football. Because of his parents’ desire to see him attend college, he enrolled in Southeast Missouri State University but left the school after two semesters and one summer. According to his mother, “he flunked everything,” and “he just didn’t seem interested in anything except radio.”

Radio Stations that Carry the Rush Limbaugh Show

To say Rush took to Radio like a Duck takes to Water is an understatement. I don’t think there is anywhere in the United States where Rush cannot be heard. The Rush Limbaugh Show. According to December 2015 estimates by Talkers Magazine, cumulative weekly audience of around 13.25 million unique listeners, making his show the most listened-to talk-radio program in the US and likely on the Planet.

After Limbaugh worked a series of disc jockey jobs, his talk show career began in 1984 at Sacramento, California radio station KFBK, featuring his ongoing format of political commentary and listener calls. In 1988, Limbaugh began broadcasting his show nationally from radio station WABC in New York City, and the show’s flagship station became WOR in 2014.

In the 1990s, Limbaugh’s books “The Way Things Ought to Be” (1992) and “See, I Told You So” (1993) made The New York Times Best Seller list. In his books and on his show, Limbaugh frequently criticizes liberal policies and politicians, as well as a pervasive liberal bias in major U.S. media. Limbaugh is among the highest paid people in U.S. media, signing a contract in 2008 for $400 million through 2016. In 2015, Forbes listed his earnings at $79 million for the previous 12 months, and ranked him the 11th highest earning celebrity in the world. His most recent contract, signed on July 31, 2016, will take his radio program to 2020, its 32nd year.

When Democrat Bill Clinton was elected president of the United States. Limbaugh satirized the policies of Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton, as well as those of the Democratic Party. When the Republican Party won control of Congress in the 1994 midterm elections, the freshman Republican class awarded Limbaugh an honorary membership in their caucus. This event confirmed him as an influential figure on the national political scene.

In 2003, Limbaugh had a brief stint as a pro football commentator with ESPN. He resigned a few weeks into the 2003 NFL season after making comments about the press coverage for quarterback Donovan McNabb that caused controversy and accusations of racism on the part of Limbaugh. His comment about McNabb was: “I don’t think he’s been that good from the get-go. I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They’re interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there’s a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn’t deserve. The defense carried this team.” A sportswriter construed the comment as racist against himself and other sportswriters. Another sports analyst wrote Limbaugh’s viewpoint was shared by “many football fans and analysts” and “it is … absurd to say that the sports media haven’t overrated Donovan McNabb because he’s black.”

Rarely have I been disappointed or shocked by his stance on the issues. More importantly, Rush was never a Never Trumper. Rush is a national treasure and when he’s gone, America will never be the same again.
