Preet Bharara ‘fired’: A phony scandal created by an Obama appointee

PREET BHARARA. REFUSED TO RESIGN. “YOU’RE FIRED.” RUMOR: WANTS TO BE MAYOR OF NYC.

New York Mag is reporting that the purpose of the firing of U.S. Attorney for New York, Preet Bharaha, was to head off an investigation into Fox News.

Fox News, in the piece below, speaks the truth that all U.S. Attorneys are generally replaced when a new president takes office.

Preet is called out as a publicity hound, which he was. He’s the only U.S. Attorney most of us ever heard of. He made sure the press was aware that he was, like Muhammed Ali, the GREATEST.

Fox News

It should come as no surprise that an Obama political appointee (with the cooperation of the media) would try to create a phony scandal out of a routine event. With every new administration, the incoming president asks all U.S. attorneys appointed by the prior administration to resign. After all, they are political appointees, just like cabinet officials and the attorney general, other cabinet members and literally thousands of other jobs within the executive branch.

n 2009, President Barack Obama asked for the resignation of George W. Bush-appointed U.S. Attorneys. When he replaced virtually all of them, it was treated as nothing out of the ordinary. That’s because it wasn’t.

In March 1993 President Bill Clinton had Attorney General Janet Reno fire 93 of the 94 U.S. Attorneys appointed by the prior administration. (Only Michael Chertoff was retained, apparently at the request of Sen. Bill Bradley, D-N.J.) Again, there was no outrage over these firings.

Yet today, Preet Bharara, Obama’s U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, is being portrayed by some as a political martyr because he was “fired” after he refused the Trump administration’s request to resign along with the remaining 45 Obama appointees in the U.S. Attorney slots. The fuss being made about this is just as phony as the outrage ginned up in 2006 by political opponents of President George W. Bush. They were shocked, SHOCKED!, that Bush had dared replace eight U.S. Attorneys—all of whom had been appointed by… Bush himself.

U.S. Marine Corps Facing Nude Photo Scandal

FILE PHOTO. SHE’S NOT PART OF THE SCANDAL.

Boys will be boys.

A group of Marines created a Facebook page for sharing nude pics of female Marines. So long as none of those photos was taken with a secret camera, ask me if I care.

But in today’s feminist-run world, Marine heads will roll and it won’t be ISIS.

Fox News

WASHINGTON – The Defense Department is investigating reports that some Marines shared naked photographs of female Marines, veterans and other women on a secret Facebook page, some of which were taken without their knowledge.

The photographs were shared on the Facebook page “Marines United,” which had a membership of active-duty and retired male Marines, Navy Corpsman and British Royal Marines. Along with identified female military members were photographs of unidentifiable women in various stages of undress, and included obscene comments about some of the women, officials said.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is now investigating. The photographs have been taken down, officials said.

Marine Corps commandant Gen. Robert B. Neller on Sunday refused to comment directly about the ongoing investigation. “For anyone to target one of our Marines, online or otherwise, in an inappropriate manner, is distasteful and shows an absence of respect,” Neller said in a statement.

It was not immediately known how many active-duty Marines and other service members were involved or are under investigation. A Marine Corps official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss personnel matters by name, said at least one government contractor had been removed from his job after he posted a link to the photographs.

In response to the report, Sgt. Maj. Ronald L. Green, the top enlisted man in the Marine Corps, said: “These negative behaviors are absolutely contrary to what we represent.”

The investigation was first reported by the Center for Investigative Reporting. The activity was revealed by The War Horse, a nonprofit news organization run by Marine veteran Thomas Brennan.

“We are thankful that Thomas Brennan, a Marine veteran, notified the Marine Corps and NCIS about what he witnessed on the `Marines United’ page,” Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Ryan E. Alvis said. “It allowed us to take immediate action to have the explicit photos taken down and to prepare to support potential victims.”

The CIR report said that more than two dozen active-duty women, officers and enlisted, were identified by their rank, full name and location in the photographs on the Facebook page. Other photographs of active duty and veteran women were also posted and linked through a Google Drive link.

The social media accounts behind the sharing have been deleted by Facebook and Google at the Marine Corps’ request.

Women do not belong in a sex-integrated Marine Corps. Let them have their own separate branch, as was done with the Army and Navy in World War II.

One more thing. If this were a homosexual group of Marines posting nude photos of other homosexual Marines I doubt that this much attention would be paid to the situation. In today’s politically correct America, heterosexuals are inferior to homosexuals.

MARINE CORPS DRILL INSTRUCTORS. PERMISSION REQUIRED TO DRILL THEM, GUYS.

Trump on Fire! President Accuses Obama of Tapping His Phones at Trump Tower

I Tweeted to President Trump that Obama should be locked up in a cell, but to be nice, put him next to Hillary Clinton.

Updated with this Fox News video:

Second update:

Opinion:

Obama thought this will never be uncovered because he thought Trump will lose. However, so much leaking of highly classified information now reaches to a break point I am 100% sure Obama did it. He will probably be charged.
Sad for America. It is like in Civil War.

More later as developments unfold.

Pelosi: “The Attorney General must resign”

President Donald Trump allowed the Deep State to take out General Michael Flynn. He can’t allow the enemy to take out the best qualified man in the country to enforce the law. Jeff Sessions must be fully supported by Trump and the entire Republican party.

As reported here previously, pedophiles nationwide have been rounded up at an exceptionally high rate since the Trump presidency began. I believe that Jeff Sessions has been behind it and I further believe that he knows where the #pedogate and #pizzagate skeletons are buried. The D.C. pedophiles and other assorted corrupt devils are trying to pull a fast one by getting Jeff out of office ASAP.

The following explains that there is no smoking gun and no perjury or other crime by AG Sessions.

Trump must remember: Weakness only encourages the enemy.

Zerohedge

It took minutes, not hours, for top congressional Democrats to call on Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign on Wednesday evening after the WaPo reported that he had allegedly met with the Russian ambassador in the months before the election, meetings that Sessions did not disclose during his confirmation hearings.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) led the effort late on Wednesday night, accusing Sessions of “lying under oath” during confirmation proceedings about his contacts with the Russians.

“Jeff Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearing before the Senate. Under penalty of perjury, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee, ‘I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.’ We now know that statement is false,” Pelosi said in a statement. She then added that “The Attorney General must resign. There must be an independent, bipartisan, outside commission to investigate the Trump political, personal and financial connections to the Russians.”

Responding to the WaPo report, in a statement issued early on Thursday morning, Sessions said, “I never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign. I have no idea what this allegation is about. It is false.”

Piers Morgan: Media fueling ‘crazy hysteria’ against Trump

When Piers Morgan was with CNN, he was the leftist loon you loved to hate. Now, he makes sense, at least when he talks about Donald Trump and America.

Insights into General Flynn’s Personality Shortcomings Help Explain His Termination

Before we forget who General Michael Flynn was and how he was terminated, let’s take a look at a plausible explanation for the hidden CAUSES of his firing.

Excerpt from Lew Rockwell

I would add that the recent media attacks on Flynn are grounded on the fact that an FBI investigation is underway. Had there not been such an investigation it is difficult to see how the media attacks on Flynn could have gained traction. Indeed it is doubtful they would have happened at all. Given that were it not for these media attacks Flynn would still be President Trump’s National Security Adviser, Flynn’s ouster is Sally Yates’s parting gift to an administration she clearly deeply opposes and was working against.

Having said all this, Donald Trump and his team would probably have stuck with Flynn had there not also been serious concerns about his performance as National Security Adviser.

By most accounts, Flynn is an abrasive personality, who makes enemies easily, and there have been numerous reports of his poor management skills in a job where such skills are essential. The fact that he obviously failed to take proper notes of his conversations with Kislyak – relying instead on his memory – is just one example of his sloppy approach to paperwork, something which incidentally must have dismayed Pence the lawyer.

Flynn also clearly has an obsessive streak, as shown by his pathological hostility to Iran, which is obviously inappropriate for someone who is the President’s most important adviser on national security questions.

There is also another possible problem with Flynn, which may have worked against him. This is his habit of self-promotion as shown by his extraordinary appearance in the White House briefing room to read out his statement about Iran.

In the 1970s, in the age of Kissinger and Brzezinski, the President’s National Security Adviser ran US foreign policy, ousting the Secretary of State and the State Department from that role. Unsurprisingly Kissinger and Brzezinsky were media stars, far outshining the Secretaries of State of the period (William Rogers, Cyrus Vance, and Edward Muskie).

In the 1980s under Ronald Reagan, a successful effort was made to re-establish the Secretary of State’s and the State Department’s primacy in managing the nation’s foreign policy, with the National Security Adviser once again relegated to an advisory role. Since then no National Security Adviser has achieved anything like the power or prominence that Kissinger and Brzezinski once had.

It is not impossible that the very public role Flynn was carving out for himself alarmed some people within the foreign policy and national security bureaucracy, with fears that Flynn was seeking to make himself Donald Trump’s Kissinger or Brzezinski. If so it would not be surprising if the bureaucracy united against him to see off the challenge, with even senior officials like Tillerson and Mattis in that case probably wanting Flynn to go.

Whatever the reasons for his going, Flynn’s departure is, however, a serious blow for Donald Trump.

CIA Broke the Law to Force Out General Flynn as Trump Faces Removal from Office

HISTORY. MARCONI-STILLE TAPE RECORDER.

The (((Deep State))) taped General Michael Flynn speaking to the Russian Ambassdor and then leaked the tape, setting the stage for a scandal and the resignation of the General.

The Flynn/Trump narrative is “setting,” the way that liquid jello sets into a semisolid after it’s put in the refrigerator for a while.

The MSM story is that traitor Trump used General Flynn to be his go-between to Russia, setting up some sort of deal that would make Trump richer or otherwise be at the service of his controller, Vladimir Putin.

Treason would be an impeachable offense.

Those who secretly taped Flynn are heroes to the MSM, saving America from being sold out to Russia.

That’s the story in a nutshell. And you should be greatful because otherwise there would be Russian troops sitting in your living room next month.

Excerpt from American Thinker

Make no mistake: we have just witnessed an operation by members of the CIA to take out a high official of our own government. An agency widely believed to have brought down democratically elected governments overseas is now practicing the same dark arts in domestic American politics. Almost certainly, its new head, Mike Pompeo, was not consulted.

Senator Chuck Schumer, of all people, laid out on January 2 what was going to happen to the Trump administration if it dared take on the deep state – the permanent bureaucracy that has contempt for the will of the voters and feels entitled to run the government for its own benefit:

New Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday that President-elect Donald Trump is “being really dumb” by taking on the intelligence community and its assessments on Russia’s cyber activities.

“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

“So even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”

Or, as the old rueful saying has it, “you’ve got to go along to get along.” This means that we the people had better acknowledge that the bureaucrats have turned into our masters, and the old expression “public servant” is as ironic as anything Orwell came up with. Schumer knows this and likes it, because the deep state wants a bigger, more powerful government, just as he does.

Note that the law was broken by whoever leaked the transcripts to the media. Not only is the crime underlying the “scandal” being ignored, but the criminals are being hailed. On Morning Joe’s first hour today, the host, a former congressman (i.e., a lawmaker) himself, called the leakers “heroes.”

The entire “scandal” is based on innuendo. Flynn tripped over his own feet by misinforming Vice President Pence on the nature of his call and allowing the veep to issue a too sweeping denial of any discussion. If Flynn had said in his conversation with the Russian ambassador that we will discuss the sanctions after Trump takes office, he might well have told Pence that they did not discuss the sanctions. And the CIA leakers could have used the appearance of the word “sanctions” in their transcript to brand Pence a liar. We don’t know, and for some reason, nobody is gaining access to the actual transcripts so that we may see the content. Perhaps the congressional investigations to come will gain access. But Flynn is now gone, and media memes have been firmly planted in the public mind.

The Flynn Affair is a huge scandal, all right. But the media are misdirecting our attention toward the lesser dimension while they studiously ignore the real threat to our democracy.

Backstabbing weakling Chief of Staff Reince Priebus needs to go.
