Obama prosecuted more officials for leaks than all predecessors combined

The legal beagles go back and forth splitting hairs as to whether “intent” occurred as Hillary waltzed about with her blackberry and other assorted devices, reading her Emails. The wonks question whether intent was required to put Pant Suit in the slammer over this Email debacle. What the Daily Caller has done is collect the factoids that can’t be disputed. This administration doesn’t like people leaking info. I added in a clip for some fun. It is an old Hillary visit to the Jimmy Fallon show back in 2015 as she explains what is in her classified Emails. Just good hearted funarama.

So here we go with a collection of the cases:

Barack Obama’s Justice Department has prosecuted more government officials for alleged leaks of information under the World War I era Espionage Act than all his predecessors combined — yet Hillary Clinton managed to avoid becoming part of that statistic Tuesday morning.

The Justice Department swiftly prosecuted six federal government officials between 2009 and 2012 under the Espionage Act, Bloomberg News first reported noting the administration’s number of record-high prosecutions under the law. By 2014, nine people were prosecuted under the spy law. Four others were prosecuted under Nixon, Reagan, and George W. Bush. One of those four cases, under Nixon, was dismissed two years later.

One of the five who was convicted was Stephen Kim, a former State Department contractor who served a 13-month prison sentence for violating the spy act. The case lasted for five years until he pleaded guilty to leaking information about North Korea’s nuclear program to Fox News reporter James Rosen.

No need to watch more than the first couple if minutes-

AG Roberta Lynch, just another prey of the Clinton juggernaut

We have heard it before. Straight arrows become ensnared in the backwash of the Clinton’s corruption. The victims will be lucky enough if they live to survive. Is Attorney General Lynch the latest to fall prey? I include the clip of why it can be so deadly to have heard the Clinton name. While there are lots of people included in the clip that are a far far stretch, it is a refresher on how much travail has followed them. I give you this, not for the truth of the matter, but rather what happens when one’s life touches the Clintons. Setting tin foil aside, would you want to be a friend of the Clintons? Is it really so depressing that one would want to end one’s life? And people are worried about Trump and his stability?

NY Post:

Yet there’s another dimension to their chronic crookedness, and it gets insufficient attention even though it might be more important to the nation’s well-being.

“Wherever they go, whatever they do, ethics are trashed and suspicions of criminal conduct follow them like night follows day.”

It is that, in addition to being personally corrupt, the Clintons are corrupters. They are piggish users, with the people and institutions around them inevitably tarnished and sometimes destroyed even as the Clintons escape to their next scam.

….. and with Lynch?

The explosive result shows the Clintons haven’t lost their touch for leaving destruction and chaos in their wake. The remarkable events also serve as a clear reminder that while the Clintons enriched themselves over the years, they were helping to bankrupt the public trust in its government and institutions. And they won’t stop until they’re stopped.

 

Happy Independence Day – It is now up to us

First let me wish everyone out there the very best for a wonderful day with family and friends

At this time of anxious concern for our Nation, as concerned as we are, consider the anxiety of these 56 men and what they were willing to do for us.

Together “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

They were mostly men of means who had much to lose if the war was lost. One-third served as militia officers during the war. Four of the signers were taken captive during the war and nearly all of them were poorer at the end of the war than at the beginning. 

The ages of the signers ranged from 26 (Edward Rutledge) to 70 (Benjamin Franklin), but the majority of the signers were in their thirties or forties. More than half of the signers were lawyers and the others were planters, merchants and shippers.

Many of them probably expected to die.

They signed anyway.

Consider the day these men signed this document and then went home to eat their Dinner with their wives and children. As we enjoy our day, consider the table talk these families had at the time. The worry and strain. It pales in comparison. I offer as well, a clip from the 2003 Television docudrama: George Orwell – A Life in Pictures.

A reminder from George Orwell. George Orwell warns us, “It depends on you.”  Can we do less?

Jake Tapper ‘Trump is living rent free inside Obama’s head’

It has become apparently clear, following Obama’s latest apology tour in Canada, that as much as America’s perceived defects constantly churn inside Obama’s head, a new focus of his angst has been Trump. I thought one could say Trump gets under his skin. Jake Tapper says it even better. First a few moments in the clip demonstrating Obama’s petulant snarky hateful self, than CNN takes on the action. A good beginning for the weekend. Enjoy.

“It is one of the grandest ironies that a giant real estate developer in New York is currently living rent free in President Obama’s head,” Tapper said on his Wednesday show. “Whatever the topic is, President Obama is eager go after the presumptive presidential nominee whether or not the topic is ISIS after the Orlando shootings, or if the topic is trade, or in this case, the question was about clean energy and President Obama wanted to give a lesson as to what populism truly is.”

Warrantless Access to Internet searches bill fails, but just for now

The wolf is snapping at our heels thanks this time to John McCain of “build the dang fence” fame that meant nothing. “Warrantless access.” That’s what the government has in mind. Due Process means nothing as well. The Senate fell two votes short, but buddy McConnell promises to bring this up once more after a few more arms are broken over the summer. Votes are at the bottom of the post. All of this information stored no doubt in the Utah Data Center. Here tis:

Agents would be able to access the information using national security letters — a kind of administrative subpoena that does not require a court order and would likely bar an Internet provider from telling its customers that their communication was searched. Currently, the FBI must get a warrant to obtain the data.

An amendment designed to allow the government warrantless access to internet browsing histories has been narrowly defeated in the Senate.

“Due process ought to apply as it relates to guns, but due process wouldn’t apply as it relates to the internet activity of millions of Americans,” said Wyden.

The amendment fell two votes short of the required 60 votes to advance.

But the effort is far from dead. Majority leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who switched his vote at the last minute, submitted a motion to reconsider the vote following the defeat.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) introduced the amendment as an add-on to the commerce, justice, and science appropriations bill earlier this week. McCain said in a statement on Monday that the amendment would “track lone wolves” in the wake of the Orlando massacre, in which Omar Mateen, who authorities say radicalized himself online, killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in the Florida city.

In other words, the FBI will be able to tell where and when a user logged in and out of a website, including social media sites.

FBI Director Comey – Just who is he?

Yesterday I had my tin foil out in fine style and suggested that the FBI use of informants particularly in terrorism cases was often not what it appeared in the post Was the Orlando terrorist Mateen an FBI informant?

Setting aside my screed, let me offer another point of view of FBI director Comey who almost universally is depicted as a white hat in shining armor, at this very moment holding the future of the Democrat party in his hands. We are apparently in the process of giving up due process in order to achieve a modicum of gun control. The new NDAA is soon up for a vote. Just who will be looking over our shoulder?Just who is FBI Director Comfey?James B. Comey, new F.B.I. nominee is not what you think 

What you will not hear from the Obama-friendly media, and our somnolent members of Congress, is this: Not only was the Patriot Act expanded under the supervision of Comey, Mueller and Ashcroft, when Comey left the AG’s office in 2005 he went to work as the top lawyer for…wait for it…”Big Brother” himself – Lockheed Martin.

As the Chief Legal Officer at Lockheed Martin, James Comey earned a total compensation of $6,113,797.00 in 2009. That’s right. Six million bucks. In one year.

When most people hear Lockheed Martin they think military contracts. Well, welcome to 1984. “Big Brother” is another name for Lockheed Martin, and security and surveillance is their game. They’ve been working closely with the National Security Agency (AKA: NSA, as in No Such Agency) for many years.

So ask yourself: Why would the Obama regime appoint a new FBI Director who works for a prime contractor that sells NSA the technology to spy on Americans? Would PETA hire a fur coat distributor?

Oh, by the way, where’s John Ashcroft today? Why he’s on the Board of Directors of Blackwater USA,which now goes by the harmless sounding name – Academi – conjuring up images of ivy-covered buildings and lounging intellectuals.

So in the days ahead, when the media and politicians tell you that James B. Comey will stand up for your civil liberties as FBI Director (citing a hospital room performance over the Patriot Act), remember: If Comey didn’t support spying on Americans, why would he work for a leading company that sells the government the tools to spy on Americans?

Are the manufacturers of hunting rifles against hunting?

Comey and Ashcroft – Lockheed Martin and Blackwater: Defenders of our civil liberties?

And just to round out what the FBI is about, let’s hear from the previous director.

FBI Director: I have to check to see if Obama can kill citizens on U.S. soil January 26, 2013

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.
Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.
“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting. Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”
“I’m going to defer.

Clinton was scrubbing emails since she was first lady. Project X. Meet Laura Callahan

When an old post written back in 2011 starts to get attention, I had to ask why. When I wrote it, it made absolutely no sense as to why Ms Callahan was hired to the second top position in security. A person who had lied about her resume that indicated her educational achievement was no more than back dated diplomas from a diploma mill. Not only that, but even when it was discovered, she kept moving up the government ladder. So follow me down the rabbit hole. Now we know why. I will include the old post in its entirety. Obama hires a security risk for sensitive post 2011. Hint: Ex-Clinton staffer ‘lost’ thousands of White House e-mails, booted by DHS for faking credentials. (Laugh line here!)

New headline:

Hillary Was Burying Emails Since She Was First Lady…

Via NY Post:

While the State Department’s own internal probe found former Secretary Hillary Clinton violated federal record keeping laws, it’s not the first time she and her top aides shielded her e-mail from public disclosure while serving in a governmentposition.

As first lady, Hillary was embroiled in another scheme to bury sensitive WhiteHouse e-mails, known internally as “Project X.”

In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and otherscandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously “lost” due to a “glitch” in a West Wing computer server.

The massive hole in White House archives covered a critical two-year period — 1996 to 1998 — when Republicans and special prosecutor Ken Starr were subpoenaing White House e-mails.

Despite separate congressional investigations and a federal lawsuit over ProjectX, high-level e-mails dealing with several scandals were never turned over. And the full scope of Bill and Hillary Clintons’ culpability in the parade of scandals was never known.

To those well-versed in Clinton shenanigans, this all sounds distressingly familiar.

Obama hires a security risk for sensitive post


Laura Crabtree Callahan testifying before the House Government Reform Committee in the Project X White House e-mail scandal investigation.

So who is minding the store? Anyone wonder why Laura was chosen? Anyone care? If she can get hired, anyone can apparently.

The administration in May quietly hired Laura Callahan for a sensitive post at the U.S. Cyber Command, a newly created agency set up to harden military networks as part of an effort to prevent a “cyberspace version of Pearl Harbor.” Matrix in our Comment section asks “how many more can we sustain”  I ask why do we need a new Department? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Callahan has her infamous background that reads like a B movie.

Ex-Clinton staffer ‘lost’ thousands of White House e-mails, booted by DHS for faking credentials

Former co-workers say they’re shocked that Callahan passed a security background check and landed another sensitive post inside the federal government.

“She’s a security risk,” said a government computer specialist. “I don’t know how she got clearance.”

“We’re fuming about it,” said another federal employee. “Knowing her, I don’t see how she could ever be 100-percent honest.”

An elite team of computer technicians assembled by the Obama administration to protect Pentagon networks from cyberattack shockingly includes a former Clinton official who “lost” thousands of archived emails under subpoena and who more recently left the Department of Homeland Security under an ethical cloud related to her qualifications, WND has learned.

Investigators found that Callahan paid a diploma mill thousands of dollars for her bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees in computer science. She back-dated the degrees, all obtained between 2000 and 2001, to appear as if she earned them in 1993, 1995 and 2000, respectively. She landed the job of deputy DHS chief information officer in 2003.

The Defense Department last week revealed it recently suffered a massive cyberattack, even as it announced a new strategy to actively combat online threats to national security.
