[American Thinker] This document destruction of archived public statements, done just a day or before Trump entered office in 2017, raises the question about just what the Obama White House wanted to hide from both Trump and the American public.
I don't have access to these public statements any more than anyone else does, but I do recall writing editorials about some of them. I recall that many did pay lip service to the growing border crisis. Many did cite the crisis as a crisis. Many did condemn the damage to rule of law that illegal immigration could do. Some may have criticized sanctuary cities.
A major multi-story FBI facility sits alongside a major freeway in a major US city. Along the front of the top floor of this FBI facility was a huge line of cell phone transmitter/receivers that you see on cell phone towers. Massive number of personal cell phone calls move from tower to tower through these receivers. The FBI building put injected itself into that chain.
As soon as Trump took office the FBI yanked those transmitters/receivers out of the loop.
I can only imagine all of the crap deep state was doing under Obama.
JW: NEW IRS Documents Reveal McCain Staffer Urged IRS to Engage in "Financially Ruinous" Targeting
Judicial Watch released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain's former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to "audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous." Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.
In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain'stain high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, "Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous." In response, Lerner responded that "it is her job to oversee it all."
[PJ] On Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden channeled his inner Barack Obama by falsely claiming that their administration was scandal-free."Know what I was most proud of? For eight years, there wasn't one single hint of a scandal or a lie."
You can actually watch him make this absurd claim with a straight face here:
The scandals of the Obama-Biden administration have been well-documented, but also well-covered-up by the media. They refused to give the scandals of the Obama-Biden administration the coverage they deserved when they happened, and they refused to challenge Obama when he repeatedly made claims of having a scandal-free administration and they certainly aren't going to challenge Biden echoing those same claims. I will, however, because unfortunately, too many people believe the myth of the scandal-free presidency of Barack Obama. So, here are just ten scandals of the Obama-Administration that Sleepy Joe is apparently proud of.
Not certain if this reaches the Biden level of "scandal" but many died in the rush to gain information on the location of UBL. Similar to the crash of Extortion 17, a somewhat truncated investigation followed:
Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi (25 December 1977 – 30 December 2009) was a Jordanian doctor and a triple agent suicide bomber loyal to Islamist extremists who carried out the Camp Chapman attack, a suicide attack against a CIA base near Khost, Afghanistan on 30 December 2009.
[NPR.ORG] The Democratic National Committee announced Thursday the list of presidential candidates who will take the stage at the first primary debates, on June 26 and 27.

In order to qualify, all candidates had to hit either a fundraising or a polling threshold. For fundraising, candidates had to have at least 65,000 donors and at least 200 donors in each of 20 states. For polling, candidates had to garner at least 1% support in at least three national or early-state polls.
Candidates marked with an asterisk (*) above met both thresholds according to the DNC.
[NYPOST] Mayor Bill de Blasio secured a coveted spot for the first Democratic presidential primary debate later this month ‐ despite his failure to get at least 65,000 donors.
The Democratic National Committee released the list of the 20 candidates who will partake in the back-to-back debates on June 26 and 27 in Miami.
The four contenders who did not make the cut are Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, retired Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel and Miramar, Fla., Mayor Wayne Messam.
NBC is expected to announce the lineup for each night on Friday morning. NBC will randomly select 10 candidates to go on each night. Candidates polling above 2% will be evenly split between the two events to assure there is no "undercard debate" or kids’ table.
De Blasio was just one of six candidates who did not meet the donor threshold.
He still qualified ‐ along with Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, former Maryland Rep. John Delaney, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan and Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, Rep. Eric Swalwell ‐ by gaining at least 1% in national polls.
His fund-raising failure came despite getting a little extra credit from his pals at the powerful United Federation of Teachers union, whose president sent out an 11th-hour fund-raising appeal on de Blasio’s behalf Monday morning, The Post has learned.
"We want to ensure that our collective voice shapes the debate and that we hear from as many candidates as possible," UFT President Michael Mulgrew wrote in the email, a copy of which was obtained by The Post.
Earn twice the income, pay twice the taxes? I have no problem with that. Pay more taxes on the same income because Senator Bernie and his little friends refuse to let the nation live within its means? No.
Don't forget the 47% who pay negative taxes. It's a lot more than that now because obamacare takes from the deplorable small business owners, who didn't build that, to give to the people who are likely democratic voters. My nephew, who had a little business which he did build, was forced to sell it and seek employment with the company which bought him out because premiums have tripled and he got zero subsidies. Health insurance for his family was not affordable under the "affordable care act" it seems. So take from likely political opponents, and give to the hoped for democratic base.
RE Ms. Hoyt, to some of us the infiltration of the Democrats became unavoidably obvious with the nomination of George McGovern. There were many hints before that but he was the cold dead carp to the face wake up call for some of us.
[NYPOST] US Rep. Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez Dem represntative from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details... ’s front man sent a profane tweet to a potential Republican challenger as he ripped him for wanting to debate his boss.
"Yo @RichValdes what in the actual f‐k makes you think you’re entitled to a debate with AOC," front man Corbin Trent tweeted Sunday at the conservative talk radio producer who’s mulling a run against the freshman congresswoman. AOC: "I'm the boss!"
Earlier that day, Valdes said he tried to challenge Ocasio-Cortez to a debate on the merits of capitalism versus socialism as they both marched in the National Puerto Rican Day Parade. Valdes claims the democratic socialist "jetted to the other side of street" when he tried to approach her.
Trent told The Post after the missed encounter that Ocasio-Cortez didn’t run away from Valdes, and that she "doesn’t owe anybody a debate."
But he wanted to send Valdes a direct message too.
"Pro tip: stalking her at a parade ain’t gonna make it any more likely to happen," Trent said to Valdes in the tweet.
He deleted it the next day, Valdes said.
"I did indeed send that," Trent admitted to The Post in a telephone interview Thursday.
"I did indeed delete it. It didn’t seem that helpful," he said.
Trent said he didn’t regret the move, but rather "regrets that people chase people around."
"I regret that so many people right from presidential candidates to right-wing commentators to random people that start organizations think that they’re entitled to people’s time. I think she’s spending a ton of time in the district talking about what she’s doing, talking about why she’s doing it and making a case for her policies," Trent said.
