It’s A Miracle!! Comey Says FBI Went Through 650,000 Emails In Nine Days

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

{Originally posted to the author’s blogsite, The Lid}

Whoever says God no longer performs miracles has just been proven wrong. You see it took the FBI almost a year to go through the first 55,000 pages of emails. But by some miracle the FBI went through 650,000 emails in NINE DAYS. Holy cow they are good!

Think about it 9 days X 24 hours in a day X 60 minutes in an hour= 12,960 minutes.  Therefore the FBI just went through 650,000 emails in 12,960 minutes or 50.15 emails every minute (with no breaks or sleep). Another way to look at it is 650,000 emails in 761,400 seconds or one email every 1.2 seconds.  See it had to be a miracle. 

Well either that, or once again Loretta Lynch pressured James Comey to save Hillary’s candidacy.  Because only one week since we found out that there were 650,000 emails for them to go through, James Comey decided that there was nothing in the 650,000 emails that change his initial decision that despite the fact that Hillary was negligent in her handling of America’s secrets no one would ever prosecute her (because she is the Democratic Candidate and his boss the Attorney General wants her to win).

Dear Messrs. Chairmen:

I write to supplement my October 28, 2016 letter that notified you the FBI would be taking additional investigative steps with respect to former Secretary of State Clinton’s use of a personal email server. Since my letter, the FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation. During that process, we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.

Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.

I am very grateful to the professionals at the FBI for doing an extraordinary amount of high-quality work in a short period of time.

Sincerely yours,
James B. Comey
Director

I wonder if somebody threatened Comey that he would be found committing “suicide.” ‘

At the very least don’t be surprised if there a lot of leaks coming out of the FBI, the agents involved were angry the last time Comey bowed to pressure and cleared Hillary.  The will be angrier now.

This is a sham, if Comey was being pressured to end the investigation early he should have resigned.  Sadly he has damaged the reputation of the great institution of the FBI once again.

Hillary Clinton’s E-Mail Scandal is About Her Corruption, NOT the FBI Director’s Anti-Woman Bias

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

{Originally posted to the National Review website}

Hillary Clinton is perfect.

That, apparently, is the Left’s new line on their nominee. It was one thing to label her a corrupt old crone when she was running against newfangled 1930s near-octogenarian Bernie Sanders. It was another thing to sigh over her foibles when she led Donald Trump by double digits.

But in a close election, Democrats have decided to don the blinders: Hillary is a saint. And all who oppose her are angels of darkness.

When Hillary’s e-mail scandal first cropped up, the Left acknowledged Hillary’s dicey relationship with the truth, but praised rival Bernie Sanders for his gentlemanly unwillingness to exploit Hillary’s corruption for political gain. Then, when Sanders finally shuffled off into the political sunset, they shifted their narrative: Now, Hillary was being targeted over speculation and innuendo — but she had some of that coming, given her decision to set up a private e-mail server. When the FBI effectively closed its original investigation, they could point to FBI director James Comey’s supposed rectitude as evidence for their theory that Hillary had made a mistake, but she hadn’t done anything criminal.

Then, like a zombie rising from the dead, E-mailgate returned: twice as brutal, twice as ugly, and twice as unkillable.

It’s too late in the election cycle to ward off E-mailgate with some tut-tutting or a wave of the hand. This election is too close for Democrats to simply acknowledge Hillary’s corruption, then vote for her in order to stop Trump.

No, they must blind themselves to Hillary’s corruption utterly, and blind others to it as well. They must spray lye in the eyes of the public to protect Hillary’s lies. And so the Left have declared their new enemies: James Comey, and supposed sexism.

Parodic New York Times columnist Charles Blow led the way with a column titled “Emails, Genitalia and the FBI.” Blow now alleges that the election is rigged — sound familiar? — by nefarious forces beyond Hillary’s control. “This election isn’t in danger of being stolen by Hillary Clinton,” Blow says, “but in danger of being stolen from her.” And why, pray tell, would James Comey, Hillary’s heretofore savior, turn on her like a Judas? Because, writes Blow, “this is just the latest lifeline being thrown to a Republican candidate drowning in his own ineptitude.” Comey must be working for the Trumps. Or the Russians. Or somebody.

Senator Harry Reid (D., Nev.), a petrifying political cow dropping, has accused Comey, in full Joe McCarthy fashion, of the same malfeasance. “I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that [your] actions may violate the Hatch Act,” Reid wrote to Comey. “In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government#…#[but] you continue to resist calls to inform the public of this critical information.” Reid is now approximately five minutes from brandishing a list of Communists before the cameras, calling for Comey’s resignation.

And Harry Reid isn’t the only one. Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake — a woman who once declared that she would let rioters destroy her city because it was imperative to give them “room” to express themselves — called Comey “reckless” and suggested that “he’s under pressure and he got shook.” Former attorney general Eric Holder, who is still under contempt of Congress, declared Comey’s actions absolutely deplorable.

Most hilarious, Professor Robin Lakoff of the University of California, Berkeley, labeled the entire enterprise sexist. “Emailgate is a bitch hunt,” she wrote at Time.com, “but the target is not Hillary Clinton. It’s us. The only reason the whole email flap has legs is because the candidate is female. Can you imagine this happening to a man?”

Lakoff apparently forgot that this re-investigation exists only began because a man, Anthony Weiner, is under FBI investigation; she apparently forgot that General David Petraeus was punished for similar crimes; she apparently neglects that 91 percent of all prison inmates are men, and that virtually every political scandal in history has targeted a man. But never mind that: Hillary must be shielded, and if her genitalia will serve the cause, so be it!

One of the most disappointing aspects of this election cycle has been the realization by some conservatives that many of our fellow conservatives want to be Democrats. They want to be Democrats not in terms of policy, although some Trump fans are indistinguishable from blue dog Democrats. They want to be Democrats in terms of politician-worship. Too many Republicans look at how Democrats rally around awful people ranging from Bill Clinton to Teddy Kennedy, and think, “How can we do that? If we just did that, we’d be able to elect more Republicans!”

There’s truth to that. Obviously, Democrats are willing to stand with their candidates, even after those candidates use their interns as humidors or their female friends as car anchors. But that’s what distinguishes Republicans from Democrats historically. And even when Republicans begin to act like Democrats — when we begin to excuse the worst excesses of our candidates in the name of victory — it doesn’t work all that well. Many Republicans still agonize over the foibles and evils of Trump. Many Republicans won’t vote for him. The same doesn’t hold true for Democrats, who may pretend at skepticism but fall into pure godworship the moment the chips are down.

Hillary Clinton isn’t a victim. She created a private server for her own benefit, and she’s been ensnared in her own paranoia and ambition. The fact that Democrats will cling to her sainthood despite that obvious truth demonstrates that Democrats cannot be trusted with power. To the extent that Republicans imitate Democrats, they can’t be trusted with power either.

Yes, at long last, the Left has pulled its anti-Trump card: Hillary has a vagina, and is being targeted for that supposedly debilitating condition.

The attempts to paint E-mailgate as sexism demonstrate the Left’s blindness to Hillary’s flaws. At least we acknowledge Trump’s faults in the GOP — or at least a major segment of us do. The Left’s attempts to pawn off all anti-Hillary scandals as effects of sexism (and Obama’s as effects of racism) are a basic avoidance maneuver.

Evidence In Anthony Weiner Sexting Scandal Leads To FBI Reopening Criminal Investigation Of Hillary Clinton

Monday, October 31st, 2016

{Originally posted to the author’s blogsie, The Lid}

It takes a lot for the FBI to reopen an investigation.  It takes even more for the FBI to reopen an investigation of a presidential candidate eleven days before the election. But that’s exactly what happened.

Early this afternoon it was announced that the FBI was reopening the Criminal Investigation of Hillary Clinton’s conduct as secretary of state, with regards to her email server and America’s secrets (and don’t listen to any Clinton surrogates who say it’s not a criminal investigation…the FBI doesn’t do any other kind of investigation).

The first inkling of the news was  a tweet from Rep. Jason Chaffetz

 

About ten minutes after Chaffetz’s tweet came this letter from FBI Director Comey to congressional leaders:

comey-letter

The new information didn’t come from Wikileaks, according to the NY Times,  it came from Huma Abedin (thanks to the Weiner sexting investigation scandal).Federal law enforcement officials said Friday that the new emails uncovered in the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server were discovered after the F.B.I. seized electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin, an aide to Mrs. Clinton, and her husband, Anthony Weiner. Federal law enforcement officials said Friday that the new emails uncovered in the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server were discovered after the F.B.I. seized electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin, an aide to Mrs. Clinton, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.

We don’t know when this new criminal investigation will be over, nor what exactly the new material is. However in this highly charged political year less than two weeks before election day, Comey would not reopen the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton and do it so publicly, unless he thought it was significant. Whether or not this will have any effect on people’s votes is also unknown. It may be that this kind of news is already baked in to people’s attitudes about Clinton…we shall see. Either way if you are a Trump supporter, it can’t hurt.

FBI Reopens Probe Into Thousands of Clinton Emails on Abedin & Weiner Laptop

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

FBI Director James Comey notified the U.S. Congress on Friday that his agency would renew its probe into the issue of Hillary Clinton’s handling of sensitive and classified information.

The announcement came in response to the discovery of thousands of emails sent to and from Clinton aide Huma Abedin on a laptop owned by her estranged husband, former U.S. Congressman Anthony Wiener, who is under investigation for sexting an underage girl.

The couple are in the midst of divorce proceedings.

“The FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work,” he wrote.

It was decided by senior officials at the FBI that it was preferable to notify Congress immediately about the discovery, rather than wait until the investigation was further along.

Clinton called on Comey in response to the revelation Friday to “release all the information he has,” telling reporters at a campaign event in Iowa, “The American people deserve to get the full and complete facts immediately,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

The Democratic presidential candidate, aware the new investigation has not yet gotten off the ground, told reporters, “So let’s get it out,” although Comey made it clear that it is likely such a probe could last well beyond Election Day.

No charges were filed this past summer against Clinton or her aides and the investigation was closed regarding emails sent and received on her private server, including those that were classified.

GOP candidate Donald Trump told reporters at a campaign event in New Hampshire, “I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made.”

At least 17 million American citizens have already cast their ballots.

NTSB Probe Finds Jordanian Pilot Intentionally Crashed Small Plane Near US Defense Contractor

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Investigators for the National TransporTation Safety Board say the deadly crash Tuesday of a small plane, barely 200 yards from the corporate headquarters of U.S. defense contractor Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford, Connecticut, was “an intentional act.”

The crash occurred as the plane was on its final approach to Hartford’s Brainard Airport.

Aaccording to a statement released Wednesday, the FBI is set to lead in the investigation of the crash of the twin-engine Piper PA-34 Seneca, with assistance from the NTSB. The plane — which had two sets of controls — hit a utility pole, snapped electrical wires, crashed on the road and exploded into a fireball around 3:40 pm on Tuesday.

A survivor told investigators the crash was no accident, according to The Associated Press, which quoted East Hartford Mayor Marcia Leclerc. The man, flight instructor Arian Prevalla, 43, is hospitalized at Bridgeport Medical Center and was upgraded Wednesday from critical to fair condition.

Lt. Josh Litwin of East Hartford Police told media the survivor is being treated for burns and is expected to survive. He added that it is not yet known whether the student pilot or instructor had control of the plane at the time of the crash.

Prevalla is a flight instructor at the Hartford Jet Center, according to records and law enforcement.

According to the report, the student pilot presumed killed in the crash was identified as 28-year-old Feras Majdii Mohammad Freitekh. The Jordanian student entered the United States in 2012 on an M1 visa for flight school, and subsequently acquired an F1 visa for language school as well, CBS News reported. He was licensed and certified to fly a single-engine plane in May 2015.

Anti-Semitic Hate Attack Foiled in Connecticut by FBI, Stamford Police

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Prosecutors indicted a 50-year-old Connecticut man Wednesday on three charges of posting threats against Jews and a synagogue on the Metalthrone.net internet site.

Kendall J. Sullivan of Stamford threatened to kill Jews and “burn their Synagogue” in May, June and this month as well in posts on the site.

U.S. District Attorney Deirdre M. Daly alleged in an announcement released Thursday that Sullivan said in a post on May 29:

“Israel, God and Synagogues. I will kill them. I have a few “Houses of Satan” in my Town… If these Jews truly believe in their god Satan, I will upset their world. I will slaughter them and burn their Synagogue to the ground . . . kids, goldfish, old folks… Shove money down their throats. These Jews of 2016. They think they are safe.”

On June 10, Sullivan allegedly said in a post:

“I am going after YOU..Your Family, Wife, kids, Grandkids, Gold Fish . . . I am warning YOU, I will go after YOU. As I get older, I just don’t give a damn . . . I will meet you in Westport at the Carvel! And then I will shoot or run over you . . . it is not just YOU, but your fellow Satanists I want to track down and kill.. I will use YOU to find others…And Kill them . . . You are a [expletive] JEW! . . I want to kill you . . . If only that . . . Name a place . . . You are Satanic and must be destroyed. Wifes [sic], kids, Dogs, Cats, Goldfish . . . . All destroyed.”

And on July 5, he allegedly said:

“[I] Am prepared to shoot YOU on sight! And shove Money down your dead [expletives]…Hole. Humans who define their entire existence thru that price tag – They are not human beings but Demons and must be destroyed…I am looking forward to my death thru Jesus Christ. I will be Free. I will be understood. Afterall, I am a Warrior of Jesus Christ and want to be his Soldier.”

Following that third post, FBI agents and Stamford police officers discovered a substantial weapons cache in a search of Sullivan’s home.

More than two dozen firearms, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and additional firearm components were seized. Within hours, Sullivan was charged in state court for the unlawful possession of unregistered high capacity magazines.

He is currently in custody, while the case is under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Stamford Police Department. If convicted, Sullivan faces a maximum prison term of five years on each count.

“We are confident that our efforts and the collaboration with all law enforcement partners may have averted a horrific hate crime from occurring,” said Patricia M. Ferrick, Special Agent in Charge of the New Haven Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “We will continue to respond quickly and investigate those responsible for spewing threats against all members of our community.”

“We here in Stamford have a longstanding and very positive relationship with the local Jewish community and have partnered with them on several security and training initiatives,” said Stamford Assistant Police Chief Jim Matheny.

“Along with the JTTF we take all such matters extremely seriously and will spare no resources to safeguard all members of our community.”

FBI Arrests ISIS Supporter Who Wanted to Attack JCC

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

FBI agent Benjamin Trentlage said that Mahin Khan, 18, who has been charged with plotting a terrorist attack on a motor vehicle office in metro Phoenix and instructed undercover FBI informants on building homemade grenades, told an undercover FBI agent that he wanted to attack a Jewish community center in his hometown, AP reported Wednesday.

Trentlage testified that Khan expressed a desire to attack the Jewish community center in October 2015, in conversation with an undercover FBI informant. According to Trentlage, Khan wanted to use pressure cookers to make homemade bombs, inspired by the Boston Marathon bombings.

On the day of his arrest, Khan left a voicemail for an undercover FBI informant expressing his admiration for the attack that killed 49 in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Trentlage testified. The FBI has charged that Khan wanted to inspire an Islamist insurgency in the US to carry out attacks similar to the ones in Paris and Brussels, and communicated online with a member of ISIS and with a Pakistani Taliban, requesting weapons and instructions on homemade explosive. But it isn’t clear whether those really were members of the two groups.

According to Trentlage, Khan described the Motor Vehicle Department in Mesa, Arizona as a soft target, saying “it would have a lot of people and relatively low security.” Khan preferred that office over a DMV office in Tucson because the sheriff’s office was located nearby.

Agent Trentlage testified on Tuesday at a bond hearing for Khan, who pleaded not guilty to charges of terrorism, conspiracy to commit terrorism and conspiracy to commit misconduct involving weapons. Khan was denied bail following his July 1 arrest. His bond hearing continues on Wednesday, when his attorneys will probably question the FBI agent.
