Idaho The Leader In the Demise of Obamacare!

The Great State of Idaho is now not only the most beautiful State in the Union but now it is the BRIGHTEST!  Not only are we a “liberty first” State, we are now the State leading the way for other States to join with us in Repealing and Replacing Obamacare by IGNORING IT!  By allowing for free markets and free citizens and families to chose the type of healthcare insurance they want, not what an overreaching Central Government thinks we NEED!

Idaho Governor Butch Otter signed an Executive Order in January of 2018.  The EO directs the Idaho Department of Insurance to allow insurers to create insurance plans that do not comply with Obamacare rules but serve the needs of Idaho citizens!  Novel Concept!

In defending this EO, the Governor stated:

“Congress and President Trump have eliminated the individual mandate requiring all Americans to buy Obamacare plans or face financial penalties.  That means we will no longer be penalized for buying coverage that doesn’t meet all the Obamacare rules.”

“We have been waiting patiently while Congress has been unable to find a solution and Idaho families have been forced to buy products that are too expensive and loaded with benefits they don’t want or need.  Now the door is open for states to pursue our own reasonable solutions.”

Enter the Legal Beagles.  A law professor at Washington and Lee University, Tim Jost,  questioned the constitutionality of the Otter EO.  “States can’t say we’ve decided we’re not going to follow the federal law anymore.  We tried that in the 1860s and it didn’t work.”  Mr. Jost’s drawing an equivalency between slavery and Obamacare mandates is actually somewhat true, but in the negative!  It would be like the Federal Government MANDATING Slavery rather than abolishing slavery!  Also, just to be clear, the 1860 issue was over the States right to severe its membership in the Union.  In this instance, it is over the States rights to govern its citizens concerning matters not specifically attributed to the Federal Government by the US Constitution!  Keep in mind, less than a 3.6 percent of the American Citizens are actually enrolled in Obamacare!  Obama himself had kept Obamacare from being universally implemented by annually granting exemptions to private employers, labor unions and many others.  Obamacare is not the “law of the land” as it has not been implemented by its namesake!

Being a recent escapee from the Communist Socialist Republic of California, the Idaho EO is a breath of fresh air.  Leaving the lawlessness of California behind, and its self-described Sanctuary State designation that pits illegal immigrants against its own citizens, and its flagrant flouting of the Federal laws against Marijuana and others, Idaho standing up for the rights of its citizens to seek and buy, or not, healthcare insurance that suits their needs, is the epitome of Constitutional Protections under the Tenth Amendment.  

Whether the legislatively prone Chief Justice John Roberts will concur with Otter’s EO or not, may be known in the next session of the Supreme Court beginning in October of 2018.  But, Roberts had no problem taking rights away from US Citizens in his idiotic justification for the Obamacare “Tax” and “Mandates”, that Obama said was not a tax, so maybe he will “right” his wrong and vote to uphold the rights of US citizens…

Regardless, as a recent immigrant to Idaho, I am proud of my new State, its people, its government, and our new domicile in Coeur d’Alene.  Hopefully, other states will see that standing by their citizens and their rights is worth taking on the courts and perhaps the Federal Government.  I doubt that the Trump Administration would join in a lawsuit against Idaho for trying to kill Obamacare!  Governor Otter may even receive a medal from President Trump!

Trump Agenda Dependent on Dumping McConnell’s 60 Vote Rule

Even if the Republicans gain 9 seats in the Senate in the 2018 Mid-Terms, Trump will need the idiotic 60 vote rule in the Senate changed to a simple majority in order to complete our agenda and restore this country to economic prosperityWhat is McConnell’s excuse for hanging onto the 60 vote rule?  He says the Democrats will use this against the Republicans WHEN the Democrats take back the Senate!!!! 

Well, if you don’t pass the Trump agenda, you will ensure that the Democrats take over the Senate in 2018!  

Will 60 Republicans in the Senate Save the Trump Agenda?

Nope!  We still have to deal with McCain, Graham, Murkowski, Collins and others who are left of center “Republicans”.  They will fight Trump on immigration, the budget, the Wall, and many other issues.  If the Senate does not dump the anti-democratic 60 vote rule, the Trump agenda will be in serious jeopardy.  Even worse, Trump’s long-term effort to reduce our deficit will be a lost hope.  Too many in the Senate are big spenders and who support big government programs like Obamacare!

Why do Senators love the 60 vote Rule?

Senators hide behind the 60 vote rule as an excuse for doing nothing to pass needed legislation!  When Republican Senators know that there will be less than 60 votes for a popular piece of legislation they actually oppose, they will vote for it in order to say that they voted on a popular issue but it did not pass!  The 60 vote rule is a gutless shield for do-nothing Senators.  If Republican members of the House knows that the Senate only needed 51 votes to pass legislation, you will also see just how lily-livered some of these members are as well.

Pressure Your Senator Now

During this Mid-Term year, pressure your Senator to do away with the 60 Vote rule.  If your Senator is not up for re-election, pressure  and pin down your candidates on their stance on the 60 vote rule.  Do note take any weak answer as an answer.  Also, pressure them on their position for eliminating the blocking of Presidential appointments.  After more than a year, Trump’s ambassador to Germany, a key European ally, is still not confirmed.  Many appointment have given up and withdrawn.  They can’t wait forever for the Senate.  They have families to support too!

House FISA Memo-What it Means and What is Next?

See the source image

The entire “Russia Collusion” story is so convoluted that it challenges even the most ardent follower of current events not to get lost in a maze of lies, corruption, and outright criminal activities, at the highest levels of the DOJ, the FBI and perhaps even our intel agencies.  The House Intelligence Committee Majority FISA Memo deals exclusively with a FISA warrant application that was sought unsuccessfully by the FBI and the DOJ initially in the summer of 2016 but then subsequently approved on October 21, 2016.  A FISA warrant allows the agencies to electronically surveil US citizens!  In this case, a political presidential candidate during a presidential election…  There is a lot we still do not know but here is what we know from the House FISA Memo (HFM).  

A FISA surveillance warrant targeted Carter Page, a “Trump Campaign Advisor”,  and was based on the unsubstantiated Russian Dossier and a September 23, 2016 article that appeared on Yahoo News based on the dossier information leaked to Yahoo by Christopher Steele, an FBI asset and the author of the dossier.  So, the FISA Warrant was apparently based primarily on the discredited Steele “Russian Dossier” and a “news” article based on that same dossier!  According to Andrew McCabe, the Deputy Director of the FBI when he testified before the Intel Committee in December of 2017, that no FISA warrant would have been sought WITHOUT THE STEELE DOSSIER INFORMATION!  

Who Paid For and Who Created the “Russian Dossier”:

The Russian Dossier was paid for by the Democrat National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton Campaign.   The FISA warrants omitted the fact that the underlying dossier was paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign making it a political document and not an investigative document.

The FBI also authorized payments to Steele for the same information he provided to the DNC and Clinton. 

Christopher Steele was compiled the dossier while also acting as an FBI “source”.  

The purpose of the Russian Dossier was to “obtain derogatory information on Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.”  

The FISA warrants omitted that Steele was working for and also being paid by Fusion GPS.

Who approved and signed the FISA Warrant:

There were 4 separate approvals by the FBI and DOJ of the FISA Warrant.  The initial warrant, and three subsequent renewals from the FISC.  On the FBI side, James Comey signed three of the applications and Andrew McCabe signed one.  On the DOJ side, Sally Yates, Dana Boente and Rod Rosenstein each signed one or more of the FISA applications.

The Russian Dossier, Fusion GPS and the FBI/DOJ:

Even after Steele was fired by the FBI, he maintained contact with the DOJ via Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ore.  Ore worked closely with Deputy Attorney General Yates and Rosenstein!  Concurrently, Bruce Ore’s wife was working for Fusion GPS  charged with obtaining opposition research against Donald Trump.  This information was fed to the DOJ via Bruce Ore…  Steele admitted to Ore that he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president”.  So, Ore knew that Steele, the author of the dossier, was highly politically biased against Trump; that Steele was the author of the dossier, but Ore specifically made sure that his relationship with Steele and Fusion GPS was omitted from the FISA application!


The HFM laid out a clear conspiracy within the DOJ and its FBI to undermine the Donald Trump Candidacy and then his presidency.  It clearly laid out a conspiracy to obtain the surveillance of a US citizen, who was part of a presidential campaign, the campaign itself, and then a US Presidency, using known, false information, paid for by a political rival candidate and a rival political national committee, to obtain a FISA warrant from a FISC.  It clearly lays out a conspiracy to surveil and gain information on a US Presidency based upon the same known false information.

Comey lied to President Trump when he told the President on January 6th, 2017, that the President was NOT under investigation.  The investigation actually began in mid 2016.  If Trump was not still under investigation, why had Comey and Rosenstein renewed the FISA warrant request multiple times!  Obviously Comey and Rosenstein conspired to continue to investigate the Trump Administration after the election!

Not Known

What is not known from the HFM is WHO was caught up in the Carter Page surveillance.  Or, if there was more than one FISA warrant sought and obtained.  Was Trump Tower caught up in the warrant.  Who else was surveiled and unmasked?  Was General Flynn surveilled and did that surveillance result in Flynn’s charges?


I hate Special Councils but there is a need to have another SC appointed.  This is due to the apparent lack of independence within the DOJ and the FBI.  How far are these agencies infected?  The Special Council should also be empowered to look at the Mueller investigation and how much of its investigation is predicated on the phony dossier.  Would Mueller even be investigating if the dossier did not exist?  I think not!

RINO Watch Weekly Report: “Stupid is as Stupid Does!

At least once a week I will publish a RINO Watch stupidity report.  I know I will never run out of materials as the RINOs always outdo themselves to vie for the stupidity award.  This week is no exception!


RINOs Respond to 8 Month Old FAKE NEWS Story and Warn Trump Not to Fire Heir Robert Mueller!

Of course the usual suspects, Lindsay Graham and Susan Collins, had to respond to a question from the media this weekend regarding their reaction to Trump wanting to fire Special Council Robert Mueller, or even conflicted Deputy AG Rosenstein.  This, in spite of the fact that this FAKE NEWS story was originally published almost 8 months ago and the President and his staff have denied the story!  Even Senator Grassley felt he had to chime in and warn Trump not to fire Mueller! 

DUH!  Assume the story is true, it has been 8 months and Trump has not fired Mueller yet!  So, Where is the BEEF?

RINOs suffer from the Al Sharpton Jessie Jackson Mic Syndrome (ASJJMS).  They can’t pass up opening their mouth when a mic and a camera are around.  It is like an automatic reflex.  Mic, mouth open.  Camera, mouth open.  Trouble is they never engage their brain before opening their mouths!


Goofy Special Council Ken Starr-Mueller Should LOOK INTO whether Trump Lied About Wanting to Fire Mueller!

This is separate from the RINO comments above because Ken Starr proved that he is a Eunuch RINO as evidenced by his less than testosterone driven investigation of the obviously hyper-testosterone driven Bill Clinton.  The most NOT BRILLIANT admission by star in the interview was:

“He can ask for Mueller to be fired for any reason.  The president’s power is extremely broad, as long as he’s not engaged in discrimination or accepting bribes.”

Well, apparently he did not bribe himself nor is he discriminating against the old white guy Robert Mueller.  Maybe he is guilty of discriminating against Mueller’s obvious leftist-elite political animus, failure of Mueller to recuse himself in light of his obvious conflicts of interests, or maybe for just being an old white guy!


RINOs Want to Stop the Release of the Nunes Memo Regarding Possible DOJ/FBI Corruption Regarding FISA Misuse

Lindsay Graham is in the spotlight once again along with the DOJ/FBI trying to Obstruct the Public’s Right to Know if its highest law enforcement and intelligence agencies have been corrupted!  Graham wants to wait to release the information until:

“I don’t want [the memo] released yet,” he said. “I want somebody without a political bias to come in and look at the allegations I have seen.”

And, pray tell dear Lindsay,  just who in Washington is WITHOUT POLITICAL BIAS!  

The TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S own Department of Justice, through the Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd told Rep Nunes, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, in a letter this week that releasing a memo  “extraordinarily reckless.”  How about the “extraordinarily reckless” abuses by the DOJ and the FBI to date in the Clinton Non-Investigation MATTER, the IRS Scandals, Fast and Furious Scandals, Benghazi botched investigations, Uranium-One “vetting” and more… 

Boyd thought that it would be a better idea to pass the memo to the DOJ  watchdog, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.  This would keep this out of the public for at least another 2 months.  Meanwhile the two Star-Struck lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are still working for the agencies in spite of their obvious bias as set forth in their own text messages.

Hopefully Nunes will get the committee to vote to release the memo this week.  President Trump has indicated that, in spite of the objections raised by his own DOJ and FBI, he would welcome the memo being made available to the public!  AG Sessions and the entire 7th floor of the FBI better not get too comfortable in their lush surroundings. 

The President can’t be very happy about the lack of respect he has been shown by this agencies!  The President has shown a great deal of constraint given that if he did ORDER the DOJ/FBI to release info, then the MSM and the left would cry OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE!

Dems Killing Support for Illegal Aliens and DACA

See the source image

Democrats and Left-Wing activists are killing support for illegal aliens and for programs such as DACA.  Amnesty is becoming a four letter word and more and more Americans are becoming fed-up with the left and the media trying to shame us into supporting illegal alien causes! 

To be frank, to see illegal aliens DEMAND citizenship or even work permits is becoming repulsive.  America-First is not only a Trump slogan, it is at the core of the majority of US Citizens.

Chain Migration is now a non-starter for US Citizens and the sentiment to repeal this idiotic procedure is high.  The emotional left-wing plea to keep families together is no longer a winner.  If they want to keep their families together, either stay where you are or have the family all apply for citizenship!  This is insane and Trump has the wind at his back on this one as well.

The Visa-Lottery program has no support among thinking American Citizens and whoever thought up this beauty should be deported!  Why on earth should the most prized status in the world, US Citizenship, be handed out in a lottery!  This is insane and Trump has the wind at his back on this one as well.

DACA is another guilt trip by the left that is rapidly losing support especially with the current government shutdown.  Why should illegal aliens be prioritized by Democrats over our military and other government workers and contractors?  Especially given the threat by North Korea, Iran, Russia and China!  This is suicidal but the gun is at the head of US Citizen taxpayers and not the Schumer-Pelosi coalition!  If there is a legislative change to DACA enrollees, it better not include chain migration nor an immediate path to citizenship.  How about a work permit for 5 years during which time the DACA enrollees must seek citizenship through normal channels and cannot receive welfare, food stamps or any form of government subsistence in the interim.  If they do not apply for citizenship or wait for 4 years to start the process, they can finish the process in the country of origin.  And don’t try to guilt-trip us into an extension!

The left and the media have totally overplayed their illegal immigration card and US Citizens are sick and tired of Sanctuary jurisdictions.  They have no more chips on the table nor can they bluff us into submission.  Illegal is illegal no matter what the adjective describes.  Sanctuary State and City chief executives and law enforcement heads who refuse to obey federal immigration laws, must be held accountable as any other criminal.  If someone is killed or injured by an illegal alien in their jurisdiction, they and their State, County or City should be held civilly responsible for paying damages to the victim and/or their surviving families.  Enough is Enough.  

The 2018 mid-term elections may pit US citizens against the left’s support for illegal aliens.  The US is not a nation of Illegal Immigration, it is a nation of LEGAL immigration.  

  • Build the Wall and install electronic surveillance and monitoring.
  • Remove all criminal illegal aliens immediately. If they come back, it is an automatic 10 year sentence in a Joe Arpaio detention facility with pink underwear!
  • Allow for immediate deportation upon border apprehension, including unaccompanied minors.
  • Give current illegal immigrants 5 years to apply for and receive a green card or citizenship.  After that, they are subject to deportation.
  • Stop Chain Migration.
  • Stop the Visa Lottery Program.
  • Hire more border agents
  • Hold the nation of origin responsible for any cost incurred by the US in the apprehension and deportation of their citizens!
  • Create a FEDERAL park in San Francisco and name it the Kate Steinle Memorial Park

Congress Needs Sexual Harrassment Training-Really!!

See the source image

And any part of my person!  PERIOD!

Are you serious?  Ryan and McConnell think that “training” is needed to prevent sexual harassment/assault in the hallowed halls of Congress! 





Hey Ryan and McConnell, Here Is a Free Handout for Your Fellow Perverts.

  1. Thou shalt not put your grubby paws on anyone but your spouse while you are in an elected office.
  2. Thou shalt not allow your filthy mouth to tell anyone but your spouse that you would like to put your filthy paws on them while you are in an elected office.
  3. Thou shalt not allow your filthy eyes from ogling anyone but your spouse while you are in an elected office.
  4. Thou shalt not attend meetings in your “tidy whites” while you are in an elected office.
  5. Thou shalt not ask another person other than you spouse to “twirl” in your presence while you are in an elected office.
  6. Thou shalt not take photos of sleeping persons or make gestures involving the sleeping person while you are in an elected office.  
  7. Thou shall pay any penalties, settlement of lawsuits, or any other costs associated with your pathetic physical, verbal, ogling, or other indecent acts while you are in an elected office.
  8. Thou shalt treat all persons in your presence as if they are armed!

Hey Ryan and McConnell, Pass this Legislation As Soon As You Are Back From A Vacation!

  1. All Members of Congress are subject to existing sexual harassment or sexual assault legislation that every other citizen of this nation is subject to. 
  2. If you get caught, and your guilt verified by a real court of law, with your paws in the cookie jar you have to pay any fine or levies resulting from your despicable behavior.   
  3. Then, you must pack your bag and leave your Congressional Office and give up any retirement or other benefits that would normally accrue to Member of Congress or a Senator. 
  4. The victim of this sexual harassment/assault crime, may take their complaint to a federal or state court of law and file their charges like “normal” people.
  5. The victim of this sexual harassment/assault judgement is under no restriction to remain silent regarding the charge or the settlement.

The other ironic issue surrounding Washington DC sexual harassment/assault by elected officials is the language used by the EEOC itself when laying our the parameters of sexual harassment/assault.  One of the EEOC guidelines states, “The victim as well as the harasser may be a woman or a man. The victim does not have to be of the opposite sex.”  How about the other 24 or 25 sexual and gender designations that the progressive left supports?  

Seriously, sexual misconduct in Congress, and the Clinton White House, is a serious matter.  Those claiming harassment/assault must also be responsible in their allegations and back up their charges.  Since the Senate and the House pass very little legislation that the voters ask them to, they should spend less time traipsing around their office in their BVDs and do the work they were sent to Washington to do.  Too many of our legislators watch the movie “Caligula” to many times and think that they are all-powerful and above the law.  Here is a piece of advice, YOU ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW.

DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and the RINOs in Congress

Image result for Trump supporting constituion

Left leaning illegal soft Speaker Paul Ryan is once again supporting the Progressive Left Agenda to leave the DACA program, Extra-Constitutionally created by Obama, in place.  Obama UNILATERALLY CREATED immigration law when he issued the executive order creating DACA after stating for years that it was up to Congress to pass a law to protect kids who were brought illegally into the US by their Illegal Parents.  The Executive Order expires on Tuesday, September 5th, next week, and could impact 800,000 DACA beneficiaries in the US.

If President Trump does not extend the program, DACA will no longer be in effect and those in this country under this program will be subject to deportation if they do not return to their country of origin when their work permits expire.  Work or Study permits are issued for 2 years under this program.

Paul Ryan Says DACA is Unconstitutional:

RINO Ryan even recently admitted that Obama did not have the CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY TO CREATE THIS LAW BY SAYING:  

“President (Barack) Obama does not have the authority to do what he did … we’ve made that very clear,”

Oh Really!  What did you and the rest of the limp wrist RINOs in Congress do about it?  NOTHING AS USUAL.  Then, Ryan had the gall to say that Trump should NOT cancel the program, even though it is clearly unconstitutional (Even with Roberts as the “Chief Justice”) by saying:

“I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix.”

Well Bucko, you have had since June of 2012 to create a real DACA law or take action prohibit Obama from putting the illegal law into practice.  BUT, LIKE YOU ALWAYS DO, YOU PASS THE BUCK TO YOUR FAVORITE PUNCHING BAG, PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP, so he can take the heat and you can act as innocent as the driven snow.  No Longer will this work!

Ryan and McConnell are a perfect example of why Trump is the President today.  They favor not only open borders but amnesty to support their elitist and Progressive Left money interests.

Show your support for Trump to rescind this illegal law by posting to Twitter and Facebook and contacting your Congress men and women and Senators.  Trump can transition this program out so not to drastically disrupt the pawns of the Progressive Left and the Elitist who support this illegal EO.  But, if Congress, who supposedly represents the “people”, hopefully only including US Citizens, then they can pass legislation and leave it up to Trump to sign the bill or not.

Ryan and McConnell always wait until the last-minute to act or not.  This is not leadership this is an ABUSE OF POWER.

Hat Tips:

GOP & MSM Join Together to Block Trump, Not the Russian Lie

All of the GOP RINOs line up with the MSM to condemn Trump’s tweets and the leaked, and mostly untruthful, supposed Trump Collusion with Russia.  If there are no juicy Trump Russia Collusion stories in the headlines, the GOP drops bombshells like the Senate’s failure to pass the Repeal and replace of Obamacare or the RINO Ryan 2018 Anti-Trump Budget guidelines to bury the Trump Agenda advances or his special themed week topics like “Buy American”.  

Then, the RINOs all go on the MSM and bad mouth Trump’s use of Twitter or the “constant drip, drip drip,” of “his Russian Collusion” involvement that they are helping to create!

Trump Voters to the RINOs in the House and Senate:


We stand by the Trump Agenda;  

We Reject the Russian Collusion Fallacy

We Will Reject You in 2018!

MSG to Trump: GOP Congress is Progressive, not Conservative

RINOs Ryan and McConnell Stab Trump and the Voters in the Back

President Trump hopefully learned an important lesson today that the GOP led House and Senate are controlled by Establishment Progressives from Both Parties and they do not agree with your Agenda nor the Agenda of “We the People” who voted for you.  

While everyone is yakking about the lack of character in the GOP led Senate, Paul Ryan in the House released HIS budget outline for 2018 that PROPOSED CUTS TO MEDICARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY!  This is the same Congress that could not see their way clear to have the guts to cut Medicaid which is an actual entitlement program that no recipient paid into, unlike Social Security and Medicare.  This move is not to be fiscally conservative, it is to trap and squeeze more seniors into a bad single payer system that will become the norm for the rest of this nation.  Squeeze enough, and us poor folk will beg Ryan and McConnell to save us!  THIS PROPOSED CUT TO SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE IS A DIRECT MIDDLE FINGER TO PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO PROMISED THAT CUTS TO THESE PROGRAMS WAS OFF LIMITS.  IS TRUMP READY TO SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH YET?  WE ARE!


If Trump does not turn this Congress around, Ryan and McConnell both will lose their majorities.  Not one of Trump’s supporters will vote for a Democrat but they WILL STAY HOME AND NOT VOTE.  We know that this will mean that the Democrats may win but SO WHAT!  GOP led Congress just flipped us off as well.

Saint Comey Pontificates! “I am Good, Trump is Bad”

“Serious Manliness Issues”!

EX-Director of the FBI Comey kept to his pattern of seeing evil spirits in his superiors that has dated back to 2004 when he was the interim Attorney General under George W. Bush.  His personal political voyeurism and undermining of his superiors, including prior presidents, is embellished by his inflated self-importance acting under a delusional belief that he is the sole keeper of truth and justice. 

Another consistency to his behavior was his insatiable appetite for the limelight and egocentric focus on his single-handed campaign to right political “wrongs” whether the wrongs involved;

  • 2005 Enhanced interrogation objection against the Bush Administration. 
  • 2006 refusal to certify the Bush NSA domestic wiretapping program over the objections of the President and his White House Council.  (Comey’s certification was required as he was the acting AG and by law had to sign off on the program.  Thus, a single person forced the Bush administration to alter the program.)
  • In his 2007 testimony before the House and Senate Judiciary committees against the Bush Administration’s firing of certain U.S. attorneys.  Comey claimed that they were fired for political reasons and not for cause, in his view.  (By law, the president and the Attorney General have the right to fire any U.S. Attorney with or without cause.)
  • In 2013, just prior to his nomination to become the FBI director under Obama, Comey was a signatory to an amicus curiae brief submitted to the Supreme Court in support of same-sex marriage during the Hollingsworth v. Perry case.  Gay Marriage. 
  • In 2015, while the FBI director, Comey stated in a speech at Georgetown University, that police officers exhibit bias against African-Americans in carrying out their duties was a natural course of on the job learned bias.  (Great opinion to hold as the head of the premier law enforcement agency in the world)
  • In 2015, in another speech, Comey contradicted Obama’s support for police wearing body cameras.  (and you wonder why Trump may have asked if Comey would be loyal?)
  • In 2015, Comey, at a speech at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, linked Poland to the Holocaust along with Nazi Germany.  Comey retracted the linkage at the insistence of Ambassador Mull.  Comey stated; ” I wish I had not used any other country names because my point was a universal one about human nature”.  (Comey assumed the role of being the arbitrator and sage of and on “human nature”!)
  • In July of 2015, Comey opened the CRIMINAL investigation into the Clinton Email fiasco.  While this is worth an entire article, here are a few of Comey’s ego driven actions;
    • Gave into AG Loretta Lynch directive to call the Clinton Criminal Investigation a “MATTER” when he discussed it publicly.  
    • Comey was “concerned” when learning that the Russians may have hacked the DNC and was further “concerned” and personally distraught when AG Lynch met with Bill Clinton on the Phoenix tarmac while Comey had an open CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION (NOT A MATTER) ON HILLARY CLINTON.
    • On July 5th, 2015, Comey concluded the investigation of Clinton and announced that, “FBI’s recommendation that the United States DOJ file no criminal charges relating to the Hillary Clinton email controversy.”  This was after a 15 minute speech stating all the reasons Clinton should have been prosecuted!
    • Later in July, 2015, after receiving the Russian Dossier on Donald Trump which is a false operation research document by the democrats, the FBI opened a non-criminal investigation into the Trump Campaign!  Comey did not discuss the dossier with Trump until January, 2017, prior to Trump’s inauguration.

Comey’s career is replete with disclosing ongoing investigations, the status of ongoing investigations, and cow-towing to pressure to back off investigations, (IRS, Clinton, etc.) by the Obama Administration including its Attorney General.  Comey’s disclosures are consistently couched in statements of personal discomfort for “having to” violate protocol and discuss ongoing investigations when it suited his need for an ego boost.  Statements concerning his consternation, fear, intimidation etc. serve to try to make himself appear as the victim and the champion against evil.  (Comey is 6’8″ so the intimidation stance is a bit shallow!) 

Well, Comey’s ego puts himself above, Bush, Obama, and now Trump. 

Everyone else is bad, Comey is Good!


A couple of other thoughts. 

Comey’s supporters, Democrats and the Main Stream Media, put forth the idea that Comey, as the consummate professional, always documented his meetings with key Administration officials regardless of who was president.  We know this is false, if we believe Comey, and the only high level meetings he documented with a memo-to-the-file was when he met with Trump!  We have no way to know,

Comey leaked his Trump memos-to-file to the press through one of his friends.  So, he leaked confidential information regarding his meetings with the President of the United States without copying his boss the Assistant AG or the AG himself.  (No wonder he did not investigate leaking)

Comey, time and time again, discussed ongoing cases, whether they were ongoing or closed, but refused to disclose that President Trump himself was not under investigation.  Comey applies convenient standards depending whether they make Comey himself look like the champion of right versus wrong.  

Comey and the FBI apparently, according to Comey who once again discussed an open FBI case in public, did not find any wrong doing on the part of General Flynn but are pursuing a charge of “lying to the FBI”.  Remember Comey successfully prosecuted and convicted Martha Stuart for this same offense after failing to find any other wrong doing on her part.  

Personally, I think Jim Comey is a sad, pathetic, small person who hates authority figures, has a very low self-esteem, and craves accolades and media attention regardless of the consequences to the nation.

With ongoing threats from North Korea, Iran, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and others, ongoing conflicts in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, a failing health care system, and a sputtering economy, Trump and the nation should be focused on something besides the ramblings of an ego-maniac and a Democrat party aided by RINO Republicans and the main stream media. 

The fate of this nation is at stake and right now our priorities are all screwed up!
