Paging SCOTUS Kavanaugh – Vince Foster is calling

 

No need for me to be Debbie Downer today. Look, Hillary could be naming the candidate. There are true conservatives that I trust who think this is a fine choice.

UPDATE: I’ll give you the Judge’s opinion:

Napolitano ‘Disappointed’ at Kavanaugh Nomination, He’s ‘Heart and Soul of the DC Establishment’

 

 

So we shall see. As for myself having spent the last couple of weeks reading and listening to hundreds of pages and testimony of the primary sourced “review” of the death of Vincent Foster, I find Kavanaugh’s treatment of Foster unforgivable so all of the positive comments about him fall on my deaf ears.

Do I think he will get confirmed? Maybe, and I have no intention of piling on after this post. He is our man. He was a young guy as part of the Starr team that headed up the “review.”

He was clearly determined to make his way to the Supremes since day one. How many clerk at three circuits? The Ninth Circuit may give him trouble – a sexual harassment case against the man he was clerking for resulting in a fast recusal. It will be claimed he knew about it and did nothing.

So I leave you with an earlier post if this peeks your interest. If you want primary documents this link gets you off to a good start: Source FBI Coverup

No longer any purpose of going point by point trying to persuade you to consider the possibility that Vince Foster was murdered. That I find no excuse for Kavanaugh as head of the investigation review under Starr- yes that Ken Starr of Clinton fame, didn’t raise a finger to correct an injustice but rather subverted all attempts at including dissenting opinions from the final report. That it was court that ordered that these dissenting opinions/facts be included in the final report. The first time ever.

It’s all out there for anyone to read thanks to FOIA– I can only conclude as well as others, that the investigation had a pre determined outcome before the case was ever reviewed by Kavanaugh. After all, it was the same FBI agents who did the original investigation who did the review. The lead investigator Rodriguez was not permitted to subpoena any witnesses. He stated he resigned because the conclusion had already been reached prior to the investigation. Sound familiar?

I ask you to take a couple of minutes to look at this one video below. Look at it. Think about it. I for one am done with it.  Earlier post with a couple of links.

This is the only time in history that

an Independent Counsel was ordered by the court to include

evidence of a cover-up by his own investigators in his own Report

After the lawsuit ended, documents were discovered in the National Archives that were written by Rodriguez, including a 31-page memorandum to his fellow prosecutors in the OIC dated December 9-29, 1994 on the subject of “November 29, 1994 Meeting Concerning Foster Death Matter And Supplemental Investigation Prior to Grand Jury.”  The memorandum explains why the evidence does not support a conclusion of suicide in the park and states in its first paragraph that Kavanaugh was at the meeting.

 

At the 2004 confirmation hearing for Kavanaugh, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) stated: “Mr. Kavanaugh served in the Office of Independent Counsel under Judge Starr, where he conducted the office’s investigation into the death of former Deputy White House Counsel Vincent W. Foster, Jr.”  A 1998 New York Times article also states that Kavanaugh “led the investigation into the death of the deputy White House counsel Vincent W. Foster Jr.”

 

Foremost a friend of Karl Rove. Brett Kavanaugh a true Manchurian candidate who played his cards right through the various circuits to this.

A protégé of Kenneth Starr, Kavanaugh played a lead role in drafting the Starr report, which urged the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.[1] Kavanaugh also led the investigation into the suicide of Clinton aide Vincent Foster. (Yes, he was young but was willing to play the game, forget the morality of it and take the hit for the swamp.)

After the 2000 U.S. Presidential election, in which Kavanaugh worked for the George W. Bush campaign in the Florida recount, Kavanaugh joined Bush’s staff,

Kavanaugh clerked for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, as well as Judge Alex Kozinski of the Ninth Circuit and Judge Walter Stapleton of the Third Circuit. Prior to his Supreme Court clerkship, Kavanaugh earned a one-year fellowship in the Office of the Solicitor General of the United States, Kenneth Starr, during which he worked on the Whitewater investigation.

After George W. Bush became president in 2001, Kavanaugh served for two years as Senior Associate Counsel and Associate Counsel to the President. In that capacity, he worked on the numerous constitutional, legal, and ethical issues handled by that office. Starting in 2003, he served as Assistant to the President and Staff Secretary. In that capacity, he was responsible for coordinating all documents to and from the president.

Kavanaugh was the fourth judge nominated to the D.C. Circuit by Bush and confirmed by the United States Senate.

HHS Nominee Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Dumpster-Dived Dead Vince Foster’s Trash

In what has to be labeled as nothing more than a love fest, the HHS nominee Secretary hearing of Sylvia Mathews Burrell who will head up Obamacare was the most disgusting display of non vetting I have ever watched. John MCain took me over the edge. So my regular readers will have to humor me, as I run a re-do of an earlier post. Remember how we were going to get a shot at presenting all that was wrong with Obamacare when the GOP got their shot at the nominee?  Fools all of them. The headline?  HHS Nominee Burwell Faces Barrage of Flattery at First  TIME ‎-

Ms. Burrell with Bill Clinton: No worries Bill, I took care of everything. Don’t worry about the Whitewater notes of Vince Foster. (Not an actual quote)

  

Republican senators, acknowledging their deep support of would-be Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell i

I advised her against taking the leadership position at HHS,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) as he sat as a witness on behalf of Burwell. “After all, who would recommend their friend take over as captain of the Titanic, after it hit the iceberg?”

Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) gave her an outright endorsement for the position, saying Burwell had “a portfolio of experience that would make her a tremendous asset.” (understatement of the day)

The questioning was surprisingly soft. While some lawmakers quizzed her on the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a federal agency created by the law to lower Medicare costs that some conservatives feared would be “death panels,” Burwell simply responded that it was her estimate that the board would never actually be activated. (This was the most absurd).

So Ms Burwell will slide into the position of head of Obamacare without a smidgen of discussion of her political ties. Rather than choosing someone with a Healthcare background, let’s pick another political operative. She got herself off to a good start with helping out Hillary and Bill Clinton and picking through dead Vince Foster’s trash the day of his death. No worries over White Water, Travel Gate or who knows what. She will be an excellent foot soldier. So just who is she?

Who is Burwell?

According to the Free Beacon:

In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster.

Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators about how senior officials had seized and disposed of files relating to the first couple’s controversial investments in the Whitewater Development Corporation, a failed real estate venture.

Clinton spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers admitted that then-White House counsel Bernard Nussbaum, who had recovered documents relating to the Whitewater controversy from Foster’s office after his death, did not turn over the documents to the Clinton family’s personal attorney, contrary to what White House officials had claimed. Nussbaum had actually given the documents to Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, who placed them in a White House safe for five days before being turned over to the family attorney.

Under questioning, Sylvia Mathews and her colleagues denied impeding a police investigation into Foster’s death after his body was found in a northern Virginia park. According to the New York Times, Mathews testified “in laborious detail about what she had found in Mr. Foster’s garbage on the night he died.”

Recall Travel Gate? For those too young:  Vince Foster Dead. A great link for a refresher.

…the long-hidden notebook kept by Vincent Foster had been in the office of White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum following Mr. Foster’s death. The notebook chronicled Mr. Foster’s anguish over Hillary Clinton’s role in the firings, Harry Thomason’s potential criminal liability, and whether the White House scandal containment strategy could be maintained to stop at the level of David Watkins.

(snip) NY Times:

The committee today began what will be weeks of intensive questioning of White House aides about whether Mrs. Clinton, in advance of investigators, had told officials to remove papers from the office of Vincent W. Foster Jr., her close friend and former law partner who was the deputy White House counsel at the time he killed himself on July 20, 1993.

(snip)

The committee also focused today on Mr. Foster’s office trash. Members questioned Sylvia Mathews, a former White House aide, in laborious detail about what she had found in Mr. Foster’s garbage on the night he died. Other than a few routine documents, the garbage contained nothing that shed light on Mr. Foster’s thinking, said Ms. Mathews, who is now chief of staff at the Treasury Department.

Republicans on the committee found it significant, however, that Ms. Mathews had also managed to retrieve a special bag of garbage containing classified and sensitive papers that was usually destroyed by the Secret Service. The contents of that bag were never examined by anyone to see if Mr. Foster had left anything in it that might shed light on his state of mind.

Ms. Mathews said that she got the bag from the Secret Service and began looking briefly through it, when she discovered that it contained all of the classified garbage from the West Wing.

Our gal Sarah Palin has an idea of who Sylvia Mathews Burwell is. She gives it to her on her Face Book page to the delight of the Liberal media.
Remember last year when America’s war memorials, national parks, patriotic amenities, student White House tours, etc. were shut down because the Obama administration’s spending priorities are so out of whack? Americans were told the Federal government didn’t have enough of our tax dollars to allow WWII vets to walk across a public sidewalk to visit a statue honoring these heroes. This, during the “shutdown” when crony capitalism, earmarks, and waste and fraud continued to fill the swamp. This, while the first family continued to live elaborately large and some in Congress had the gall to whine that they aren’t paid enough. This, while the people’s will continued to be arrogantly ignored.

What a cold and callous bureaucrat it was who’d direct that quite revealing fiasco, an episode over which the Obama Administration never recovered in the court of public opinion. 

Who would do such a thing? Who would punish patriotic Americans? Who sent the email initiating all this?

The political operative Sylvia Burwell.

Bunkerville blog: HHS Nominee Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Dumpster-Dived Dead Vince Foster’s Trash

Dumpster-diving. I see. How is that working out for you?

This is the best you have, and these are the best sites still standing on the Burwell nomination? LOL

Even Free Republic has given up. They have had nothing on Burwell for weeks, although they still have plenty of CT on Obamacare overall.

 

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, new Obamacare head, former Vince Foster trash picker

Strange how the memory bank of the GOP is so short these days. So Ms Burwell will slide into the position of head of Obamacare without a smidgen of discussion of her political ties. Rather than choosing someone with a Healthcare background, let’s pick another political operative. She got herself off to a good start with helping out Hillary and Bill Clinton and picking through dead Vince Foster’s trash the day of his death. No worries over White Water for sure. So just who is she?
