NOTE: Posting the Weekend Reads a day early because of the breaking news.
Well, the long winter depression begins for me. *sighhhhh*…
While I was away with my family in the forest, stumbling through caves, and peering up in awe under the stars, my brother and brother-in-law closed our parents’ swimming pool. Winter is coming.
And so it begins…
Whoa. McCabe now says he based his unprecedented investigation and surveillance of a presidential candidate and the president himself on “this idea” Trump was a Russian agent. Not this “evidence.” Not this “articulable factual basis.” Not even this “suspicion.” Just this “idea.”

Ace: “Is a Major Announcement by Durham Coming Soon? Mollie Hemingway seems to know something…”

The “Intelligence” briefing on so-called “Russian hacking” was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!

It all ties together. As I have reporter…Clinton Foundation info was found on the Weiner laptop that was purposely held by FBI headquarters with the intention to hold until after the 2016 election. https://t.co/tXgACAWleF

Remember, Comey ordered the emails to not be examined for a month and a half, and then, when he did allow an examination, he engineered the search parameters to be so narrow that they almost seem designed to not discover any new confidential information in them.
Is there any news on that story that’s broken recently?
The biggest bit of new news? An FBI agent who was “uncomfortable” with the FBI covering up these emails was told that if he “whistleblew” about it, he would be prosecuted.
Presumably for violating the same disclosure-of-confidential-information statue about which that the FBI was working to falsely exonerate Hillary Clinton.
Not all whistleblowers are precious, I guess. …
Read Ace’s full post. I sure as Hell hope this is something huge. And damn soon.
The FBI was engaged with the Obama Admin in a coup to take down a duly elected President and FBI agents even texted back and forth about it. When you think about the level of resistance @realDonaldTrump has faced, it’s amazing he’s done so much for America while battling a coup. https://t.co/UDlnn4ozQi

Sean Davis and Mollie Hemingway: ‘Trump Was Right’: Explosive New FBI Texts Detail Internal Furor Over Handling Of ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ Investigation: Newly disclosed internal FBI notes and text messages detail the extent of the FBI’s desire to take down Trump and his associates at any cost.
If this is what we’ve found on the FBI system 4 years after they did the dirty, can you imagine what was on the dozens of phones and computers Mueller’s special counsel team secretly wiped to make sure no one ever saw that evidence? https://t.co/RXjFKGNjBS

Oh, absolutely, there was indeed “Russia collusion”. It just wasn’t Donald Trump and/or any of his campaign members. People must be indicted and heads had better f*ing roll. Including the eagerly complicit MSM.

#Durham BREAKING: The primary sub-source for the Steele dossier was deemed a possible “national security threat” + the subject of 2009 FBI counter-intel probe. According to new records, those facts were known to Crossfire Hurricane team in December 2016. @LindseyGrahamSC pic.twitter.com/I6Gp4fv98C

Never forget … They seriously thought Hillary would win, and all of this would just be buried in a blackhole in outer space.
Ace: “Newly Released Texts Show That FBI Agents and Analysts Were So Distressed by Likely-Illegal Handling of Trump Investigation They Bought Liability Insurance to Protect Themselves From Subsequent Lawsuits … This is normal, right?”
If you are seeing polls where Biden and Trump are neck-and-neck, Biden is in trouble.

Bestest Campaign Ad Evah!!! …
Peter Burfeind: Why Black Lives Matter Only Empowers Racist White Leftists: Leftists are outing themselves as racists complicit in perpetuating systems of oppression. Maybe it’s time we started believing them.
Curtis Ellis: Communist China’s Espionage and Influence Operation in America Continues: Perhaps the Justice Department should be devoting more resources to countering the China threat and fewer to diversity training and entrapping the president.
John Daniel Davidson: Democrats’ ‘Norm’ Is Brutalizing The Reputations Of Republican Court Nominees: For the last 30 years, Republican nominations for the Supreme Court have faced personal, ugly, defamatory attacks from Democrats.

Will registered Democrat Chris Wallace consult with BFF Rep. Debbie Dingell on what questions to ask Trump in first presidential debate? https://t.co/bHKS6ctlxx

Paul Brinkmann: Experience, charisma will steer NASA’s choice for first woman on moon … Can’t possibly be that she is just ‘experienced’? The camera must love her, or something. Pretty sure Neil Armstrong wasn’t worried about being full of charisma while hoping and prying for a safe mission there and back. This is incredibly sexist.
