“My fervent hope is that both Hillary and Trump get fired – she to face charges and he as a total lying, conniving fraud, but of course, due to the state of America and the worship of celebrity, my hope rests as, at best, a forlorn one. She will not be held to account for jeopardizing national security on an epic scale and Trump, a TV clown act, who definitely does not possess the integrity, intellectual heft, work ethic or frankly good manners to be President, just might insult his way into the White House.”

Before we can move on, we need to understand how we got here and truthfully we need answers about the 2016 presidential corruption, as well as uncovering and understanding the extent of the Russian influence operations. There was plenty of extreme corruption underway before Trump even entered the race. Podesta and the Clintons had their Pied Piper strategy mapped out, which was detailed in a leaked Podesta email, from April 23, 2015. That strategy, like all the mass media saturation information warfare the Clintons engage in only works because of mass media collusion, that saturates the media with their talking points and spin (LIES). Bill Clinton called Donald Trump weeks before Trump entered the race, so it’s reasonable to wonder if Bill Clinton encouraged Trump to enter the race… Trump was supposed to be the easiest candidate for Hillary to beat.
Donald J. Trump, whining, shady, puffed-up windbag Reality TV star is the President of the United States. Any attempts to gloss over his glaring character deficits is a wasted effort. Early on in 2015, when he entered the race plenty of people, myself included, wrote extensively about his lack of character and just like the extremely corrupt Clintons, he corrupts everyone and everything within his orbit.
There were his staunch defenders proclaiming he was a victim of unfair media, that it didn’t matter if he didn’t understand policy (or even the basics on our constitutional republic) or that the stench of corruption clings to him as tightly as dirt and filth cling to the Peanuts character, Pig-Pen. Trump defenders proclaimed that none of that mattered, because once Trump was president, he could hire the “best” people to guide him and in regards to Hillary Clinton’s corruption, Trump wasn’t so bad.
Frankly, very few of the “best” Republicans or conservatives will work for a “loose cannon” like Trump. The Clintons had an easier time getting Democrats and liberals to carry water for them, because most of the political Left in Americav values politics above integrity or character. President Trump is anything but an organized and competent leader of the executive branch, but he was legally elected President of the United States.
Unless and until real evidence shows otherwise, there are no grounds to impeach him. The Democrats and many in the mainstream media, with their highly corrupt “Resist” effort are working feverishly to destroy President Trump and remove him from office, by any means necessary. Their relentless scorched earth information war against President Trump is making America look more like a banana republic than Trump’s ineptness. The constant stream of anonymous leaks of classified information, from within the US government and by former Obama officials are felonies being committed, not whistleblowing. And due to President Trump’s shameless playing his own staff members against each other, there are plenty of leaks of classified information coming from within the White House too. Trump does not create an environment of trust and loyalty among his staff.
The Democrats, mainstream media and twitterdom pundits rail daily about Russian collusion and allege nefarious, corrupt and inept actions that President Donald Trump is guilty of committing. And yet so far, there is no “there” there in the allegations, despite the breathless, breaking news tag-team efforts of the New York Times and the Washington Post ranting about Trump/Russian collusion. With this backdrop, it’s time for a retrospective of the loose ends from the 2016 presidential election that were never satisfactorily explained.
There are plenty of leaked DNC and John Podesta emails, in addition to released Hillary Clinton emails and FBI Notes to conclude conclusively that many journalists in the mainstream media actively colluded with the Clinton campaign to advance the Clinton campaign talking points and media strategy.
In fact, that is how Trump waged his “GOP Insurgency”, with millions of dollars in free media being given to Trump during the GOP primary.
Who really was behind the “GOP Insurgency”?
Who were the real Trump advisors during the GOP primary, who advised Trump on talking points, how to spin and who colluded with the mainstream media, especially news outlets like CNN, MSNBC and FOX, to give Trump 24/7 free media during the GOP primary?
Who colluded with the mainstream media to sit on Trump dirt during the primary?
There was a string of orchestrated protests and media reporting in early 2016, that led to Trump being painted as a “fascist”. Admittedly, Trump aided in his own fascist caricaturization by his “strong-man” talk and antics, especially, his campaign rally where he read a loyalty pledge and had rally participants raise their right hand and repeat the pledge. Who on earth thought up that pledge rally and organized it? The media immediately was prepared with the Nuremberg rally imagery comparison… almost like it was a set-up.
Who came up with the phrase “GOP Insurgency”?
By May of 2016, when it was a certainty that Trump would be the GOP candidate, the Washington Post had 20 reporters working full-time to dig up dirt on Trump. 20… And dig they did, pouring into every aspect of his life and assuredly many of them are still hard at work on the Russian collusion smear campaign. Yes, the breathless reporting on “Russian collusion” with endless “anonymous sources” leaking classified information ( that’s a felony btw) is part of a concerted information war against Donald Trump. It is the continuation of the Clinton scorched earth campaign effort. You’d think with all the people working to expose Trump/Russian collusion, that by now they’d have smoking gun evidence, if it really happened.
Trump really is so thin-skinned and emotionally-stunted that if someone says nice stuff about him, he thinks they love him and if they criticize him, he considers them mortal enemies. He reacts in a catty teenage girl manner, hysterics included, and when Putin praised him, Trump thought Putin really likes him. Trump is that easy to play.
The Russians can be called many things, but stupid isn’t one of them. They assessed Trump’s personality and bio and they already know Hillary Clinton inside out, so they have played their own information war, playing American partisans against each other. I don’t believe that Putin and the Russians would ever trust Trump with details of any of their plans, so I doubt actual collusion exists. Instead, I believe the Russians continue to manipulate Trump, agitate both Left and Right, along with fueling paranoia and wild conspiracy theories among the American political fringes.
The Wikileaks leaked DNC and Podesta emails clearly show media collusion with the DNC and Clinton campaign. The mainstream media, instead of admitting to the corrupt media collusion, rails against Wikileaks as a source not to be trusted. Except the leaked emails, despite being stolen, appear to be legit.
“Never underestimate the Clintons when it comes to underhandedness.”
– August 5, 2015 blog post, Buyer Beware
Now, back to Hillary’s emails server scandal, which James Comey declared was “extremely careless”, but not criminal and he asserted there was “no intent” on Hillary Clinton’s part to mishandle highly classified information. This despite copious evidence to the contrary. So, let’s look at the loose threads from her email server scandal.
David Kendall, the long-time Clinton friend and attorney, handled the sorting process of the emails on the infamous home-brew server, which was referred to as Hillary’s email server. His office decided which emails to return to the State Department, as official records and which were personal. However, that server was really Bill Clinton’s personal email server, which he had set-up in his home for his Clinton Foundation business.
David Kendall’s office had the email server and according to media reports, his office turned over official State Department business emails and a thumb drive to the FBI. This thumb drive was mentioned in a House Oversight Committee hearing when Patrick Kennedy, the State Department official doing damage control for Hillary, was asked about the thumb drive of the emails and he stated he believed the FBI had the thumb drive. The FBI was reported to have Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson’s laptop computers too. Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson worked with David Kendall to sort Hillary’s emails on her server and to collude with Platte River Networks to destroy the Clinton emails they had on their server.
So, when the email investigation was reopened in October 2016, the leaks came pouring out of the FBI about ongoing investigations in several states into Clinton Foundation corruption and information that the FBI did not destroy Mills and Samuelson’s laptops per the Obama Justice Department’s shady agreement.
Who has the thumb drive of the Hillary server emails?
Who ordered the destruction of the emails? David Kendall had the server, Hillary claimed she did not order anyone to destroy any emails, so that leaves Bill Clinton as the real owner of the server, which housed his Clinton Foundation emails (a Clinton Foundation which was reported to be under FBI investigation for corruption in several states)… It seems very improbable that David Kendall would take it upon himself to decide to destroy tens of thousands of the Clintons’ emails without consulting one or both of the Clintons.
At the time Kendall’s office destroyed “Hillary’s personal emails”, those emails were under subpoena. Destroying information under subpoena is clearly obstruction of justice. Heather Samuelson, one of Kendall’s team that worked to sort the server emails, refused to tell the FBI what keywords were used in the sorting process of those emails. Why did James Comey go to such efforts to exonerate Hillary Clinton in regards to her “intent” in using a private, unsecured email server and jeopardizing highly classified information, during his July 5, 2016 statement and while testifying to Congress, when he knew blatant obstruction of justice had occurred? Comey knew tens of thousands of emails from her server had been destroyed and he knew that server housed not only her yoga schedules, wedding plans and her State Department emails, but also Bill Clinton’s foundation emails… a foundation reportedly under criminal FBI investigation is several states.
While the media twitters about Trump’s handing classified information to the Russians in the Oval Office, it’s important to investigate that, but it’s also important to continue investigating the extent of Hillary’s reckless handling of classified information. And while they’re investigating Hillary’s emails, perhaps they can find the approximately 1,000 missing emails between General David Petraeus and Hillary Clinton.
What ever happened with these reported ongoing FBI criminal investigations of the Clinton Foundation in several states?
So many unanswered questions about the corruption in the 2016 Presidential election and all the media fixates on is Trump/Russian collusion. The corruption of both candidates and the American media created a culture that made it easy for Russian influence operations to flourish. The greater threat to America comes from home-grown public corruption, because that is tearing apart the framework that supports our constitutional republic.
You won’t see American partisans on either side wanting to root out the public corruption within their own political parties. It’s easier to blame the Russians for all our problems.
