Oath* to propaganda

What do you think the dominant liberal media is trying to portray with these

The effort at a glance is to suggest Trump likes the policy and wants children separated from their parents.  It is appalling propaganda lie.  Note the companion “immigration” piece from the same publication. The child referred to is a sixteen year-old who instructs some children as to how to change a diaper. This is only shocking to the most cloistered of pathetic journalists probably emanating from one child house-holds.  In the real world this is how children are raised and indeed the species propagated.  Older children help with the younger. Only infantile journalists find this remarkable.

Now reading the rest of the expose it gets more breathless:

Food, air-conditioning, medical care, actually extensive human interaction with siblings when relevant, while their parent(s) are “necessarily” away for a couple of weeks. Oh the humanity. Where was it they were leaving again and how much better was that?

The 2000 is the total of children abused by the idea that “parents” can drag you across hell’s acres on the idea there is nothing wrong or no alternative to surreptitiously enter a country at will. The parents have indicated criminal intent. Children of parents honestly seeking asylum who present themselves at border checkpoints are not separated from their parents.

If the asylum seekers knew what the OIG report disclosed . . .

. . . would they be so keen on coming here?

How’s that for blending two extremely important topics of the day — separating children, babes in arms, from their mothers at the border and the OIG report?


We expect that many Veritaspac readers watched part of, or perhaps all of, the Senate Oversight Committee hearing related to the DOJ IG report yesterday and today.

We watched a great part of this hearing, grueling as it was. And, as you might expect, we have our analysis of the hearing, its relevance to the specific issues, the responsiveness of the witnesses, the professionalism of the committee members, the anticipated media reports, and the conclusions the American people should reach based on what they saw and heard.

We consider our readers to be knowledgeable regarding current events, well-informed on the issues covered in the hearing, and fair in reaching their own analyses.

We urge each of you to give V’pac your input, both as it reflects your conclusions as well as how you believe the American public will receive the committee’s effectiveness in addressing the questions which have arisen out of the IG’s report.  If anonymity is requested it will be respected.    V’PAC


David Catron’s article at American Spectator has some chilling analysis about the implications of what the report says and what it concludes about the perps. As it turns out the Office of Inspector General’s report, in conclusion a whitewash as regards the FBI investigation witch-hunt  into “Trump Russia” collusion, is not unlike Comey’s whitewash regarding Hilary’s e-mail scandal.

So that both could not be accused of “hiding something” or being transparent, they do indeed expose much corruption, malfeasance, political influence, extreme recklessness and the like —  but in each case determine as regards the ringleaders that it was all discretionary or unintentional or just bad form or something.

They are transparent — they are transparent political operatives themselves making political decisions rather than setting forth the facts they found without recommendation.  Instead they each chose to hinder prosecution with their own comments.  Our DLH held forth on the implications some days ago.  And sowe wonder

Why the OIG Report Should Scare the Hell Out of You 

Now as regards the hoopla over “separating children from their mothers” at the border, a matter clearly propagandized by the usual suspects to get people’s attention away from the body of the OIG report and the scandal it is, we see a thorough recitation of key facts about that situation from John Nolte writing at Bretbart:

13 Facts the Media ‘Pros’ Don’t Want You to Know About ‘Family Border Separation’ 

Each point in the article is an important one, but this one might help those concerned about the alleged impact on legitimate asylum seekers with children who present themselves at the border: (Bold emphasis ours)

Asylum seekers who respect our laws, by turning themselves in at legal points of entry, are not being separated. Over-crowding due to the abuse of this policy might eventually make this impossible, but it is up to Congress to allocate more funds.

So with our propagandist dominant media and corrupt political law enforcement leadership one must ask asylum seekers —  what confidence can you have about the long-term stability of this republic? We are asking such a question with no less impropriety than members of congress who have asked similar things as they reflect on recent revelations about corruption at the top in the DOJ and FBI.              V’pac

Any parent held for reasonable suspicion should have their child with them in jail?

  • Or maybe because they might have children that should exonerate law breakers, thieves, drug dealers, what have you, because surely they were trying to do good by their children

That is the logical conclusion of the criticism of long standing immigration and other law enforcement policy “to tear children from their mothers” who are flight risks.  Of course many of the same critics are OK with tearing children from their mothers wombs in pieces during abortion.

If trauma on the children due to separation is the overwelming concern (and not propaganda ) then the critics logically should be advocating for housing children in prisons, or setting all “parents” free. Here are some related articles from the Daily Caller:

Trump Bashes ‘Horrible and Cruel’ Border Policies as Lawmakers Scramble to Find an Immigration Fix

The “horror” is that it is a Democrat sustained /liberal judge created policy. Democrats can help fix the particular problem but they are not serious about anything other than open borders.

There are no more excuses for any misunderstandings about the concept of national borders and legal and orderly admittance.  Every sentient adult and child of age understands the concept.

The family unity solution is to turn the family units away as a unit until they prove a need for asylum or the legitimacy of other lawful entrance. Temporary detention as a unit pending an asylum hearing (the only category legitimately a concern in this latest “Trumped up” controversy) has to be authorized by law.  Trump is obeying the not unreasonable law (even if he does not like it) that adults and children not be housed together during a determination of wrongdoing on the part of the parent(s) who are necessarily detained as being of a categorical high risk of flight and evasion into the US.  There should be detention and a speedy determination of asylum status.

You can purge the QC Times if not the AP

  • Purge your subscription for their fomenting of hatred and fake news

Look the title in this recent article in the QCTimes print edition. In reading it one finds that the fulminating headline is not ameliorated. Nowhere is it pointed out that actual Ohio residents (a mere 30 day requirement)  can easily check their registration status if it dawns on them that they have not voted in six years and perhaps may even be curious as to where to vote. If need be they can re-register, a very simple process.  No “want to be”  eligible voter  is actually purged as an eligible voter, only for the amount of time it takes them to re-register. What is “purged” (reduced) is the opportunity for fraudulent voting, as in the otherwise easy to perpetrate situations of someone knowing someone has left years ago and using the opportunity to vote absentee using their name and for necessary record keeping purposes. The Ohio process is entirely consistent with HAVA and protecting the integrity of the vote. Our bet is that provisional voting is also allowed generously.

King not going to give Ryan a pass for immigration afront

JUST ONE OF MANY REASONS CONSERVATIVES, AND ALL REPUBLICANS, ACTUALLY, SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF THE VOTERS OF THE 4TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT TO HAVE STEVE KING IN THE GOP CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS.      DLH

Breitbart Exclusive — Steve King: Republican House Members Considering Forcibly Removing Paul Ryan from Speakership

A motion to vacate the chair would call a referendum on Ryan’s speakership to the floor. It could force a vote on whether Republicans want Ryan to remain as speaker as a lame duck for the rest of the year, especially after all these failures in strategy and his efforts to undermine the president with an amnesty bill that the president opposes and said he “certainly” would never sign.

Ryan claimed, falsely, to House Republican members recently in a conference meeting that the president did support the Ryan amnesty bill–something the president confirmed on Fox and Friends on Friday morning was not true. The president opposes the bill and Ryan’s continued claims that Trump did back the bill are now proven to be false.

The fact that sitting House Republican members are contemplating calling forth a motion to vacate the chair–the same mechanism forced Ryan’s predecessor, now former House Speaker John Boehner into early retirement–is remarkable. He announced earlier this year he intends to serve out the rest of this term in Congress then retire at the beginning of next year. That thrust Ryan into a lame duck status in the speakership, meaning he has lost a significant amount of influence.

SO…WHERE’S WALDO?

ER…THAT IS, U.S. ATTORNEY JOHN HUBER?

Anybody remember that “top” Federal Prosecutor that AG Jeff Sessions named to look into the allegations regarding the DOJ/FBI “wrongdoing” to help him determine whether he should name a “Special Counsel”?

Well, where is he, now that he’s “obviously” no longer necessary. With the release of the DOJ’s Inspector General’s long-awaited report, we know that there was no “wrongdoing” or abuse of power.

Nossir! There was just a little incompetence and some ‘appearance’ of bias (at worst). Christopher Wray, current FBI Director yesterday assured that he’s on top of this and he’s gonna be sure that all bureau employees realize that they ought to be ‘objective’ in handling investigations.

I think all Americans should be grateful that Mr. Wray is going to do all that’s necessary to do that.

So thank you AG Sessions, “top Utah federal law enforcement officer” John Huber, and Inspector General Horowitz.

Now that that’s all settled, let’s move on.

Yeah, I feel so much better. How about you?       DLH

Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed on Thursday that Utah’s top federal prosecutor is investigating allegations of misconduct atop the Justice Department and FBI.

by Kelly Cohen | March 29, 2018

John Huber, is the lead U.S. attorney and top federal law enforcement officer in Utah, having served for two years under former President Barack Obama and reappointed by Sessions last spring.

In a letter to top Republican lawmakers who have been vocal in their accusations of abuse of powers, Sessions said he saw no cause to appoint a special counsel for the moment.
After Huber completes his review, Sessions said he will then determine the need for a special counsel — who would have broader prosecutorial powers.

“We understand that the Department is not above criticism and it can never be that the Department conceals errors when they occur,” Sessions wrote. “I am confident that Mr. Huber’s review will include a full, complete and objective evaluation of these matters in a manner that is consistent with the law and facts.”

Sessions said he also receives regular updates from Huber.

The lawmakers addressed in the letter — Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. — have pressed the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to look into surveillance of Page, as well as the relationship the DOJ and FBI had with Christopher Steele, the author of the Trump dossier, which GOP findings suggest was used in obtaining the wiretap.

Democrats have said Republicans are trying to thwart special counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Early Wednesday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz confirmed a probe would be launched to examine how the Page warrant was obtained. Sessions had already hinted the inspector general would take the reigns of the investigation earlier this year.
Horowitz is already investigating allegations of political bias in several investigations leading up to the 2016 presidential election.

But that wasn’t enough for Grassley and Graham, who renewed their call for a special counsel later Wednesday. (For the full story, go to the link at top)

No, it is a matter of Trump trying to put America first

David Harsanyi writing at Townhall has a column which amounts to advocacy for ~~ let those other nations slap tariffs anyway they want, but we should not have tariffs because theirs are good for us, or something,  and any tariff we apply to them is bad for us, oh, and by implication,  any previous deal remains good forever.

The title assumes free trade exists.  It does not.

Free Trade Already Puts America First

Read his column. Our response was as follows with some clerical adds and additional appended comment for this publication:

We believe Trump issued a challenge to the effect, let’s all have no tariffs. That was not mentioned. The steel comment by Harsanyi , that it is low tech and easily ramped up is wrong, as it is a matter of years as plants are not idled, an additional expense even if it were always true, they are closed and the land goes to other uses and the same thing happens to associated supplier industries. Skills deteriorate. Then, acquisition of sites and construction and talent can take years. We are not talking buggy whips.

DH may find all this “peace enhancing” it is instead the enhancement of a globalism that inhibits freedom which is not “peace”. Then there is the issue of dependence and leverage under DH’s scheme of let them keep our products out. His scheme is one of unilateral no tariffs on our part on the presumption it saves consumers money here. He also seems to assume that it is only a matter of dumb products which he purports steel to be, as if advancing countries don’t learn the services skills or high tech our exports are reduced to.

Because tariffs are indeed a type of tax, and all should be low, it is not as if internal tax policy and subsidies do not enter into the overall picture. Certainly “no tariff” does not mean no trade related costs or subsidies exist asif there is an absence of protectionism. If we or they call it something else is it OK, are we then living in a free trade world? DH knows better. Taxing to some extent foreign products makes them pay attention to their external economic impacts, maybe making them more efficient.

Unilateral no tariffs on our part (the apparent DH scheme of things) or unilateral complacency with no changes to existing agreements, as if a fair deal and some sort of equilibrium had been reached that has not resulted in forced and limiting adjustments imposed on our economy, (rather than as a result of natural competition) does not necessarily result in less “taxes” on consumers as government seeks to remain large to cope with the sequelae. Nor does no tariffs mean no trade related costs as the result of a comparatively reduced economy for lack of export business.

Trump wants a better deal for the country as a whole on trade. He has already indicated compromise is possible. Savings to consumers is not dependent on unilateral no tariff policy which DH seems to advocate.

That we have much to lose culturally, national sovereignty and national capacity in a myriad of areas should not be dismissed. If other countries will not abide by principle of fair trade, well it is entirely appropriate that we assert ourselves and no longer be taken advantage of.     R Mall

Recall Rev. Wright’s invocation?

The Obama populated DOJ pretty much did that

We’ve certainly been had

Inspector General’s Report: “Abandon All Hope of ‘Justice’, Ye Who Enter Here”  A statement that should be emblazoned over the entrance to the US Department of Justice for all future Americans to be reminded of, as established on June 14, 2018.
————————

The IG’s report puts the final stamp of acceptance by our entire political system, and the so-called “free press”, that corruption is an integral operating method of our nation’s ruling class.

The world learned yesterday that, in America, ‘seekers of justice’ will get what they seek if they have the ‘proper’ political ideology. They will receive punishment and retribution if they do not.

THE key part of the 500 page Inspector General’s “report” was, very simply, “no finding of political bias” despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary!

The Almighty must be really pissed off at the United States of America!        DLH

——————————————————————————————————-

Correctives?  Serious ones not likely. More like “guys don’t be so obvious,”  if that.

How do you change the culture with a Christopher Wray and Rod Rosenstein still in charge at DOJ/FBI?

Oh a few with a paper trail and weak apologia may find themselves “ceilinged” ;  worst case demoted or retired early.  A small price to pay says the ring leaders (those sucked -up to) who encouraged it. The ring leaders are not worried either way, they have books to profit off of and no doubt some cushy job somewhere on top of their retirement. And who wants to bet any show punishments won’t be walked back as the perps sue and the DOJ decides, you know, the appeal is just too costly, we capitulate.

Random thoughts inspired by others–

Of course there was NEVER going to be any punishment of Hillary despite criminal security breaches on her part. It is now known to the public (the FBI has known since before Comey essentially pardoned her) that OBAMA communicated with her on her private server and lied about knowing of its existence AND as Hillary NOW chortles about COMEY used private e-mail to conduct FBI business.

That sh*t was just getting too close to home bro’  even though Hillary’s use involved matters secret that foreign actors were able to look at.

Much reading today about the IG report in The Federalist, Hot Air and Townhall among others.    R Mall

Whitewashgate

This morning our DLH called it as regards the Horowitz report. Whitewash and coverup and maybe setting up sacrificial snakes is how to describe the report based on what is well established.  Decision makers will not suffer for their wrong-doing and illegal behavior. Mere misjudgements. It was hoped the report would set the establishment / deep state Obamnistas/ Clintonistas back on their ears for what were actual crimes by any standard other than corrupt standards. Read Gary Bauer’s initial report below.  There will no doubt be additional worthy analysis to come.

The Cover-up Continues      Thursday, June 14, 2018*
 
The long-awaited report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz was finally released this afternoon.  It is 500 pages and will take time to fully dissect.
 
To be clear, this report is about how then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, then-FBI Director James Comey and other top officials handled the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of national security secrets.  It is not about the FBI’s Trump/Russia investigation. 
 
According to Bloomberg, which obtained excerpts of the report, Horowitz blasts Comey for “dramatically departing from department norms,” but finds no evidence of political bias.  That is difficult to accept given that Comey essentially admitted his bias.   
 
Speaking of bias, there was at least one big bombshell in the Horowitz report:  Newly revealed text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page suggest that they somehow intended to “stop” Donald Trump from becoming president. 
 
How much more evidence of political bias could you possibly need, especially given all their other biased messages?
 
Let me remind you again of several facts, none of which are in dispute: 

Yet what we ended up with from the “experts” at the Justice Department was Clinton’s exoneration and an obstruction of justice investigation into Donald Trump.  In what world does that make any sense?

And don’t forget that Comey drafted his statement clearing Clinton before she was even interviewed.  And Peter Strzok helped him write it!  Bias, anyone?

That is why a significant percentage of Americans have lost confidence in our top law enforcement agency.  This was not an investigation.  It appears to have been a cover-up from start to finish.

Another Bombshell

Fox News reports that congressional investigators have discovered evidence that foreign powers did in fact access classified information from Hillary Clinton’s emails.  This information is verified in a May 2016 email written by . . . FBI agent Peter Strzok.

But that is not what James Comey said in his July exoneration statement.  Instead, he hedged his remarks, saying, “it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail account.”

In addition, congressional investigators suggest that Comey “misinterpreted the Espionage Act” with his excessive focus on “intent,” and appears to have “predetermined” the outcome of the investigation.

Revisiting Rosenstein

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was on Sean Hannity’s show last night discussing reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened congressional investigators during a January meeting.  Here’s what he said:

” I can tell you that my patience has run out.  I have none left. . . We’ve had many . . . altercations with the deputy attorney general and his staff. . . So look, the staff definitely have felt threatened.

“What people should be concerned about the most right now is obstruction of a valid congressional investigation by the Department of Justice. . .  This is totally unacceptable.  It’s a classic case of obstruction of a congressional investigation.  The problem we have here is, who’s going to investigate the investigators?”

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy also writes about this allegation.  McCarthy suggests, correctly in my view, that Rosenstein has a gross conflict of interest and that his behavior is evidence of it.

I have seen reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is defending his deputy.  But with all due respect to the attorney general, there is no way he could with certainty know what Rosenstein said.  He wasn’t there.

I know Jeff Sessions.  We celebrated together on Election Night in New York City.  I was thrilled when he was appointed attorney general.  We spoke the other day at the White House.

Yet, it is totally inexplicable to me that he would publicly defend Rod Rosenstein, the man responsible for the Mueller investigation, at this juncture.
