There is no place to hide…

With the steady drip of previously classified documents and the soon to be released report from John H. Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, there is no place for members of the Obama Administration to hide from Spygate and its subsequent coverup.

It is all about to be revealed. Yes, the Obama Administration, under White House direction, did attempt to interfere in the 2016 election. Yes, the Obama Administration, under White House direction did engage in domestic spying on various Americans, the full extent which remains unknown but is thought to include individuals in the Trump orbit, Members of Congress, and members of the media. Yes, members of the Hillary Clinton cadre did attempt to introduce anti-Trump dirt into the 2016 campaign with the sole purpose of damaging the Trump candidacy. And, yes, the spying and cover-up continued during the Trump presidency.

The game has changed…

There will no longer be an attempt to deny what the documents and testimony reveal. The game has changed to protect the Supreme Leader, Barack Hussein Obama at all costs and to preserve as much as his legacy as possible. A questionable legacy of scandal, failed programs, and a disastrously negligent foreign policy.

Obama’s SODDI defense…

In a classic “Some Other Dude Did It” defense, it appears that Obama and his cadre of corrupt operatives plan to lay the blame for everything at the clay feet of former FBI Director James Comey and diffuse the blame among "everybody else". Especially since Comey admitted in a television interview with MSNBC's Nicole Wallace that he did not do everything “by the book.”

NICOLE WALLACE: You look at this White House now and it's hard to imagine two FBI agents hanging out in the Situation room. How does that happen?

JAMES COMEY: I sent them. Something we, I probably wouldn't have done or gotten away with in a more organized investigation -- a more organized administration... The Bush administration, the Obama administration... The FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself to interview a senior official, you would work through the White House Counsel. There would be discussions, approvals, who would be there.  And, I thought it is early enough, let's just send a couple of guys over.

Everybody, even up to Hillary Clinton, is now expendable if it protects former President Obama and what remains of his legacy.

Why is this a plausible resolution to the worst scandal in the history of American politics?

There is no chance that former President Obama, former Vice President Biden, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be further investigated, prosecuted, and sent to prison for various crimes – including obstruction of justice. The American people will have to be content with the prosecution of lesser individuals from the Obama Administration. Knowing the top people will not be held accountable, except in the court of public opinion and by the historians, the value of certain facts that could have been used as bargaining chips is greatly diminished. Even if revelations led directly to Obama, so what?

The fix – or should I say “fixer” is in …

For even the most casual observer of the Obama era machinations and scandals, they all appear to have one thing in common: the presence of Obama’s “Fixer,” attorney Kathryn Ruemmler.  Ruemmler who served as President Obama’s long-term White House Counsel has made a come-back. This time to defuse the issues created by former Ambassador and general-purpose liar Susan Rice’s last-minute ass-covering “by the book” email written to herself on January 20, 2017, when Donald Trump was being inaugurated, 

The email purports to memorialize then-President Obama’s instructions to the individuals in a January 5, 2017 meeting where Obama specifically ordered the individuals present to do everything “by the book.” What makes this meeting so interesting is that many of those alleged to be involved in perpetrating the domestic spying on American citizens included such notables as then-President Obama, then-Vice President Joe Biden, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, then-CIA Director John Brennan, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and fired former FBI Director James Comey.

No, the timing of the self-serving email was not suspicious…

Email Written Upon Advice of Obama’s White House Counsel

“Rice’s attorney and former Obama White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler wrote the letter to Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I. on Feb. 23, 2018.  According to Ruemmler, Rice wrote the letter  “upon the advice of the White House Counsel’s Office” and didn’t get to it until Inauguration Day, 2017 because “that was the first opportunity she had to do so.”


So other than to absolve Barack “by the book” Obama and name the potential targets for prosecution, the letter is now worthless.

Editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez nails it…


Bottom line…

It is more than likely that Brennan, Clapper, and Comey will be portrayed as the primary drivers of the conspiracy. Other significant players, especially in the FBI, DOJ, and Department of State and those involved with the Steele Dossier are likely to be given the opportunity to plea out and be given minimal sentences.

And, so much depends on who wins the House of Representatives in 2020 – provided that the GOP can retain the Presidency and a Senate majority large enough to overcome the drag of RINOs like Mitt Romney.

If the progressive socialist democrats prevail in the House and Trump is reelected, look for continuing resistance. If the GOP takes the House, look for little more than censuring Representative Adam Schiff because the GOP historically is afraid to wield power. Massive spending will continue with marginal cuts around the edge. Look for more corrupt and dissolute candidates in 2024.

There is no doubt that Obama will blame everyone else and will wind up being the most corrupt President in history.

We are so screwed.
