Mueller Report Finally Finds Collusion

Leaves both sides stunned

The lamestream media told you:

The Mueller investigation will resolve everything! He will get the dirt on Trump. It takes two years to find Russian collusion. So what if the investigation knows no bounds.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The blather about the Mueller investigation, from media people who obviously know virtually nothing about the actual report, but continue to espouse as if they do, defies even the lowest novels for scripts. Watch the panels, and comment as needed, "You don't know that," until you can't stand it any longer and change channels.

Congress continues its late-breaking farce by pretending to investigate the Hillary crimes in the last few weeks, yes weeks. The FOX station is complicit by pretending the rush to act means something. Where was the pressure while there was still time left on the clock? There wasn't any.

If Mueller's report is finally released and accurate, and all his work really digs up reality, do you think we might see these headlines:

"Mueller Report Uncovers
Russian Election Collusion --
With Bill and Hillary Clinton."

Unintended Consequence of Two Year Study Finds NO Trump Collusion
But Hundreds of Millions with Hillary, Bill, Clinton Foundation, Even Chelsea

Indictments Coming

Uranium One deal clearly felonious,
report says, possibly treasonous

Democrats stunned, Republicans surprised,
pundits confounded


Only if the report is honest, says one critic.

Prognostication: What Mueller decides to release, lamestream media will hail him as a hero, Trump will suffer slings and arrows, debate over the results will dominate news for a long while and never resolve. Money well spent, if you were on the receiving end. media will, as usual, talk about the cost, but not about the recipients.

Last chance to enact National Carry, HR 38

Legislators let it languish, could still act.

House passed it months ago, all that's needed is Senate vote and Trump signature.

Could be completed in a few hours!
Mitch McConnell simply has to decide to call the vote.

The lamestream media told you:

Not a peep. But:
The Hillary investigation is swinging into high gear.
Yeah, right, where was this report, or any report, for the past two years.
Now that the R's are losing control, FOX and a few others are all hot and bothered about the stalled and abandoned Hillary investigation. This is where the real Russian collusion was. The whole thing is so perverted and corrupt it should make you nauseated. In a few weeks investigations will be all democrat controlled, you can bet the Clintons will skate.

They better be cautious with all the investigations they're planning for Mr. Trump. If they dig, and turn up dirt on Hillary, they can't just bury it, that would be criminal. It's hard to imagine how they could dig into the 2016 election and not dig up dirt on their sullied princess. What a bind -- they find damaging evidence and then have to commit felonies by not revealing it! "Be careful what you wish for, you might get it."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

I've been writing and warning about this for two years --
the promised National Carry bill that is only bait.
We're at the end of the rope.
The feds stripped out the part of this bill (HR38) where they pour money into the NICS check.
That was passed separately, and really made it look like Carry was just a smokescreen.
National Carry has been left idle by the republican house, senate and president to die.
It passed the House.
All it needs is McConnell to hold the Senate vote.
Will he?

ATTENTION ALL LAW-ABIDING GUN OWNERS:
NATIONAL CONCEALED HANDGUN CARRY RECIPROCITY IS IN JEOPARDY.

Concealed handgun carry reciprocity is about to die. It is about to die through deliberate inaction or callous indifference of the U.S. Senate. But we have a small window of opportunity: 21 days left to achieve the goal that has eluded us for years. It seemed assured of being accomplished by the Republican controlled 115th Congress but, it wasn’t.

Congress still has time to act before the end of the year, but that does nothing to explain why Congress failed to get this done. It certainly had ample opportunity to do so.

WHAT HAPPENED? WHY DID A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED CONGRESS FAIL TO FULFILL PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN PROMISE?

The House of Representatives and the Senate did introduce several national handgun carry reciprocity bills in the last two years. One such bill was 115 H.R. 38, titled, “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. The bill’s synopsis reads: “AN ACT to amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a means by which nonresidents of a State whose residents may carry concealed firearms may also do so in the State.”

The measure was voted on by the full House, and the Republican controlled House passed the bill, on December 6, 2017, by recorded roll call vote: 231 to 198. The vast majority of House Democrats voted against passage of the bill. Only 6 of 184 Democrats voted for passage of the bill. Contrariwise, the vast majority of House Republicans, 225, voted for passage of the bill; and 14 voted against passage.

One day later, on December 7, 2017, the bill was sent to and received by the Senate, where it was read twice, in accordance with Senate protocol, and referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary for action. And, then we heard—Nothing! Dead Silence!

The bill apparently fell into a deep, dark abyss.

Senator Mitch McConnell, who, as Senate Majority Leader, has ultimate authority for determining what bills are voted on by the full Senate, said and did nothing to get the Judiciary Committee to act so that the bill could be voted on by the full Senate.

Why didn’t the Judiciary Committee act on this? They certainly could have, but didn’t. And, why didn’t Senator Mitch McConnell urge the Judiciary Committee to action, so the full Senate would have had the opportunity to vote for passage of national concealed handgun carry legislation? We don’t know. He could have seen to this, but didn’t. Senate Republicans who can answer these questions, aren’t saying.

Much about this, we don’t know. It is deeply perplexing.

BUT, THIS MUCH WE DO KNOW—

Senator Mitch McConnell can get things done when he wants to. Senator Mitch McConnell was able to get Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. This wasn’t easy, given the strenuous pushback by Senate Democrats. And the Senator should be commended for his zealous, unflagging effort in that regard. He should be just as zealous in getting national concealed handgun legislation through the full Senate. He certainly could have done so. For some reason, he chose not to. Yet, he still has time to get this done before the 116th Congress begins its first term, on January 3, 2019, because, at that point, it would be futile. The House will seat a Democratic Party majority; and the Democratic Party leadership’s agenda will include the drafting of bills to restrict the right of the people to keep and bear arms, not to strengthen that basic, fundamental, natural, and unalienable right

The 2016 general election earned us President Donald Trump along with Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress. National Right-to-Carry was in our grasp. The timing couldn’t have been better. This is what law-abiding gun owners wanted, and NRA and other Pro-Second Amendment organizations campaigned vigorously for it. Our once-in-a-lifetime real hope for National Right-to-Carry is now slipping through our fingers.

The Senate had over a year to act on the bill, from late 2017, when it first received the bill from the House. But the Senate failed to act.

CAN’T THE SENATE SIMPLY PASS THE BILL NEXT YEAR AND SEND IT ON TO PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR HIS SIGNATURE IN 2019?

NO! IT CANNOT! All pending bills die.

“At the end of a two-year session, Congress adjourns ‘sine die’ or ‘without day’ and not reconvene until a new Congress starts some time the next January.

After that, the slate is wiped clean; there is no business pending. All of the ‘H.R.’ and ‘S.’ numbered titles that have been discussed and debated for the past two years will be archived.

When Congress reconvenes, the process starts all over again.”

When Congress reconvenes in 2019, House Republicans can reintroduce concealed handgun carry reciprocity but with a Democratic Party House of Representatives majority, the bill would never pass. So, whatever the Senate does in 2019, won’t matter because both Houses of Congress must pass a bill before a bill is sent to the President for his signature, at which point, a bill then becomes the Law of the Land, in accordance with Article 1, Section 7 of the U.S. Constitution.

TIME TO PASS CONCEALED HANDGUN CARRY RECIPROCITY IS OF THE ESSENCE!

There is no time to waste. The Senate is scheduled to adjourn on December 14, 2018. If the Senate fails to pass the bill by emergency roll call vote, we will have lost the only real opportunity to see concealed handgun carry reciprocity through to fruition.

And, keep in mind: the Senate’s failure to act on national handgun carry places extreme pressure on President Trump who made this issue one of the signature issues of his campaign for U.S. President. Failure to accomplish this goal can well lead to Trump’s defeat in the general U.S. Presidential election of 2020. We must place the Senate’s feet to the fire.” This is where you can help!

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

IMMEDIATELY CALL:

U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (Chairman of the Judiciary Committee): (202) 224-3744
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: (202) 224-2541
Your Senate Delegation: (202) 224-3121

TELL THEM THIS:

“The Senate must vote on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 bill immediately. The bill passed the House on December 6, 2017, almost one year ago, and has since been stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee. That is unacceptable! We have only a few precious weeks to get this matter completed. The Senate must pass this bill and send it immediately to the President for his signature. President Trump will sign the bill into law, fulfilling an important campaign promise. My continued support for you will depend on your vote to approve this bill.”

You should also contact NRA and President Trump, reminding them of their commitment to support national concealed handgun carry reciprocity. The contact numbers are as follows:

The White House: (202) 456-1111 or (202) 456-1414
National Rifle Association (NRA): (800) 672-3888

We must put pressure on those who can get this matter accomplished.

Making a few important phone calls will only take a few minutes of your time. It is quick and easy, and critically important to safeguard and strengthen our right to keep and bear arms.

What you do can make a difference and you will be proud to have taken an active part in protecting our natural, fundamental, unalienable, and sacred right to safeguard our lives and the lives of those closest to us, with the best means available: a firearm.

If you chose to do nothing, you will only have yourself to blame.

THIS IS OUR LAST REAL SHOT AT PASSAGE OF SIGNIFICANT PRO-SECOND AMENDMENT LEGISLATION!

DON’T HESITATE TO TAKE THE SHOT. YOU WILL REGRET IT BECAUSE IT MAY BE YOUR LAST!

658 Resolutions Ignored (including Guns)

Nancy Pelosi takes over, leads massive charge against rule of law

The lamestream media told you:

Virtually nothing, when this actually happened, last time (2007): "Democrats congratulated themselves on passage of their six top-priority bills in their self-imposed 100-hour sprint for the 110th Congress. Whether the bills will pass the Senate, or survive a veto from the president, who is not a member of their party but is not very bright, is unknown." (from Page Nine No. 24, Jan. 25, 2007.)

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The House introduced a mind-numbing 658 resolutions in the first 100 hours of congressional floor time, unreported by the "news" media.

All of the language appears to have been written before the session began, mostly by unelected teams of democratic operatives outside public view, presumably as part of the Democrats' promised ethics reforms.

For the six passed bills, the committee process, floor debate, floor markups, amendments, deletions, rules and procedural questions were avoided as part of new ethical policies. This eliminated from the process rank and file congressmen, including eager freshman legislators from both parties, none of whom were interviewed on how they feel about that.

Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the highly admired first woman Speaker of the House, has called the new approach, "open, fair and full debate," and "open, honest and ethical government." She was not questioned on the discrepancy by the unbiased media.

No reporting covered the 658 resolutions, which are intended to become laws, and covered for example a Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, a Bring The Troops Home Act, a Coal to Liquid Fuel Promotion Act, and a NICS Improvement Act, H.R. 297, which affects national firearms background checks for the public. The reason for the "news" media blackout were unclear.

"The Child Gun Safety and Gun Access Prevention Act of 2007" H.R.256, has no details posted at this time. A toy gun ban, H.R. 428, involving the Consumer Products Safety Commission, has no details posted at this time.

The "Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2007," H.R. 96, is listed but no information is currently available. The previous and poorly named gun show loophole act, sponsored by Sen. John McCain, was designed to close down gun shows completely. That bill was thoroughly examined at gunlaws.com: http://www.gunlaws.com/GunShows/index.htm

[Note: Because the Gun Law Update and Page Nine lists overlap, you may have seen some of this info already.] Under the original draft, currently legal gun shows are outlawed without prior federal permission. Gun show promoters must agree to warrantless searches in order to operate, and may be arrested if private citizens talk at the show about gun sales they wish to complete away from the show. I did not make that up. The right to assemble peaceably at a gun show or even plan for one, carries stiff prison terms unless federal licenses are issued in advance.

Massive new bureaucracy is created because all shows and their exhibitors must be registered 30 days before the show, then again 72 hours before the show, and again five days after the show. That's in addition to registering anyone who walks in, plus "any other information" the Secretary of the Treasury decides, by regulation, is necessary on vendors, attendees, and the show itself.

Critics pointed out that none of this deals with the criminals, or background checks, and the rest of the bill just gets worse.

See the 658 bills your House of Representatives introduced and that the lamestream media failed to tell you about here: http://thomas.loc.gov/home/multicongress/multicongress.html, by clicking "110" and "All" and "House Bills Only."

The cost of the bills is unknown. The amount of tax increase included is unknown. The unpaid Uninvited Ombudsman cannot possibly spend the time to do that research, and invites readers to try. "News" outlets avoid that work because it is no longer their yob to inform the public. About 49,000 words of new law passed the House.

"News" reports did include the votes on the six bills that passed, like ball scores, but following standard procedure did not provide the bill numbers, which would allow the public to look up the bills themselves.

The Uninvited Ombudsman stumbled upon this, his own report, by accident, while looking for something else, otherwise he too would have missed it. Voting matters.

The Marine Corps is quietly monitoring sections of the US-Mexico border to stop migrants and drug traffickers

https://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/your-military/2018/09/13/the-marine-corps-is-quietly-monitoring-sections-of-the-us-mexico-border-to-stop-migrants-and-drug-traffickers/

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing. They did say Trump's border wall is a fiasco, not needed, currently stalled.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Along the U.S.-Mexico border, small teams of Marines are using a suite of advanced sensors and remote monitors to assist the U.S. Border Patrol in scanning the most vulnerable sections of the untamed border. These Marines belong to specialized units called Ground Sensor Platoons, and for over a decade have been quietly partnering with the U.S. Border Patrol to help agents catch drug traffickers and migrants who cross illegally into the United States from Central and South America.

Despite being infantry Marines, the weapons of choice for Ground Sensor Platoons aren’t bullets. The Tactical Remote Sensor System, or TRSS, is a suite of sensors, cameras, re-transmission devices and monitoring equipment that are used to track enemy movement. The sensors are sensitive enough to detect how many people may be walking nearby, what direction they’re traveling, and can even differentiate between different types of vehicles.

All of this makes the Ground Sensor Platoon an important partner to the U.S. Border Patrol. And despite some states withdrawing their National Guard units from the region during President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown earlier this summer, the Marines show no sign of slowing down...

2015: 445,000 illegal aliens captured, estimated 200,000 got through, news reports: We're winning! (roughly 16,500 illegal entries per month, 550 per day). If that's winning, what does losing look like?

2017: 304,000 illegal aliens captured trying to sneak in, no estimate on illegal entries. Border Patrol had previously estimated between one and three get through for every one caught. My eyewitness photo essay and report on illegal border activity: https://www.gunlaws.com/Minuteman.htm

...The Ground Sensor Platoons evolved from a Vietnam War-era remote sensor program whose success during the battle of Khe Sahn showcased how important early notice of enemy movement could be. During the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Ground Sensor Platoons became invaluable for American troops struggling to maintain control over large areas... For the overworked and undermanned U.S. Border Patrol, the opportunity to utilize military-grade surveillance equipment operated by Marines frees more Border Patrol agents to catch smugglers and undocumented migrants moving north...

It is unknown if anyone has questioned the use of U.S. Military on U.S. soil to enforce civilian law, or if border patrol and enforcement falls into some other nebulous category of national defense. The training Marines get in this process has proved invaluable when deployed overseas, according to Marine sources.

Infringement is Constitutionally Banned

Punishment must be made swift and sure

"Officials" think anything is OK. It is not.
Those who would infringe must face punishment.

The lamestream media told you:

We have to take away the "assault weapons." These are too dangerous to have on "our streets." "We don't want to take away all your guns," says Mr. Hogg, convincingly, despite what all his supporters and media lapdogs say. The "assault weapon" ban simply bans anything with a magazine... and a grip. https://www.gunlaws.com/FeinsteinGunBanBillAnalysis.htm

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Civilians must have armed parity with police. That was the principle behind the Second Amendment. Government could not get out of hand if the the people were armed, the last bulwark against tyranny.

Infringement is banned in no uncertain terms in the Constitution. Taking or attempting to take legally owned guns from the public is infringement. Those who would infringe upon the public's right to possess and possession of arms must face punishment. It is not something they can simply do. Removing or outlawing firearms from the public is forbidden.

The actions of criminals, no matter how bad those acts may be, do not justify illegal actions against the public. Such logic is emblematic of the irrational behavior of so-called progressives in general. It is a sign of people who need medical treatment and are not getting any. It represents, among other problems, the logic error, appelare desperadi, "we must do something." You should not do something, you should do the right thing.

Disarming the public is not even remotely a solution to the actions of criminals or insane people. In fact, it only makes matters worse, by leaving the innocent helpless in the face of miscreants and sociopaths. Failure to see this is a sign of untreated hoplophobia.

One way of fighting this, untested at the current time, is creed discrimination. It is illegal to discriminate based upon creed. Though creed is often viewed in a religious context, it is also equally valid in a socio-political context. The fierce attachment with which many Americans cling to their right to arms is indeed a creed, dating back to Colonial times. Singling citizens out for special legal action is creed discrimination and illegal under civil-rights statutes. Where are the creative and ambitious civil-rights attorneys looking to break new ground and make a name for themselves...

One Yale Prof Gets It

The lamestream media told you:

America has the finest university system in the world (ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN).

The university system has become an indoctrination camp instilling in our children marxism, socialism, anti-American values, hatred for traditional American success and what makes this nation, capitalism and the Founding Fathers' virtues great (talk radio, FOX).

So which is it?

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Professor Gelernter, a computer science professor at Yale, writing in The Wall Street Journal, advises the freshman class that they -- and their professors -- already know and agree on nearly everything important. You, as a non-Yale freshman can guess, probably with great accuracy, what they believe about his list of what’s important, and then understand why the university system poses such a risk to The American Way. http://www.gunlaws.com/TheAmericanWay.htm

His advice: Now that “you’re adults,” why not disagree just once, so you can tell your grandchildren about it.

Dennis Prager recommends a new book, Get Out Now, about how America's schools have become morally toxic, and concerned parents have an obligation to pull their impressionable young children from this dangerous environment. Many options exist, it's the duty of parents to start looking at your choices, and not co-opt your precious kids.

Michelle Malkin writes:

"I like to joke that I’m a little brown woman with a big mouth.

"And since I’m a “person of color” according to liberals, I’m supposed to use my big mouth to support radical leftist causes. But I don’t do what they expect. Instead, I’m proud to speak out as a wife, mom, entrepreneur…and unapologetic conservative.

"To the left, that makes me a traitor to my race, an instrument of white supremacy, a fascist, and who knows what else! It’s all about identity politics, you see. A dangerous new “social justice warrior” mindset is gaining strength in our gender, and sexually.

"Liberals see racism where it doesn’t exist, fabricate it when they can’t find it, and ignore it within their own ranks.

"If you’re a woman or an ethnic or racial minority, you’re expected to march with the left. If you’re a white male, you’re put down as a racist or one of the infamous “basket of deplorables.”

"If you dare to question the latest pieties, angry protestors will try to shout you down and shut you up. They’ll even use violence to get their way. All to suppress any ideas and perspectives they don’t like.

"This madness started on our college campuses, and now it’s infecting the rest of society. It’s high time you and I stood up to it, Mr. Korwin."

That's why I write the way I do, Page Nine readers. Look at my starter bit about people of color vs. colored people again. It's a brave new world.

Hurricane Florence Displays "Climate Models"

Huge Disparity in Full-Color Broadcast for Days

Climate modeling couldn't make accurate predictions
Meteorologists just needed to do it for hours, not decades

Public sat mesmerized, mesmerized, by swirling images, images

The lamestream media told you:

Run for your lives! Danger Will Robinson! Storm's a comin'! Deadly Category 4 murder death kill! Meets land as Category 1, so what, ignore the number (they actually said that) still horrible threat, pay no attention to people walking behind windblown reporter standing there.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

OK, a certain amount of civil awareness and preparedness is called for, failure to do any would be negligent. But the degree to which the media acts in lock step on this has become absurd.

The public's desire to remain glued to their televisions to watch the silly displays is preposterous. Dennis Prager saliently observed you could replay the storm coverage from any past hurricane, edit out the names, and nothing would be different! The wind is blowing, Wolf, and it's raining real hard! I can hardly see, Don! Look at these waves, and the storm surge is huge! We've got feet of water in the streets, and water rescue crews are out everywhere. Trees are down. OK, there, 60 seconds and you have everything you're going to get for the next hours, along with short term loops of hypnotic swirling colors. Do you really need to see bald Don Lemon getting rained on lightly?

What's missing: Long-term footage of the storm from discovery to current position, that would be revealing, no one played it, just short frenetic loops. Wide shots of the Atlantic to show the other storms developing, also not shown anywhere I could find. Comparisons of the many projected tracks and the actual track, and analysis of why they were so divergent, that would be valuable, and require work. Not displayed before or after.

Does this climate modeling inaccuracy play into any other climate modeling arena of significance? Curious minds want to know. That would be real reporting. Instead we get breathless reports that wind is blowing and rain is falling. You know that with the TV off.

UnnamedPREDICTIONS: FLORENCE GOES NORTH -- FLORENCE GOES SOUTH --
FLORENCE GOES ANYWHERE -- ONE STATION GOES HONEST

At least scientists know climate-change computer predictions will be accurate 80 years out.

HOW RACISM REALLY WORKS

"The left is the real source of racism, always has been."

We all know democrats are the perpetrators of the Ku Klux Klan (the KKK), and the ones who fought FOR slavery in the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln, who saw to its end, was the first Republican, and his tradition continues to this day. Now leftist progressives, a wing of the democrats, are busy tearing down any relics of that, like historic statues and road and building names all across the south, their home base. Remember this: "The one who cries 'racism' typically is the racist, hiding in the noise and confusion created."

The "People Of Color" and "Colored People" problem

They are the same thing of course, except the first name allows leftists to fool themselves into believing they are not bean-counting racists, and the second name exposes them like the naked emperors they really are.

Try this: Next time you see or hear "news" reports, pundits or friends refer to "people of color" think to yourself "colored people" and look how dramatically the entire thing changes! The racism is glaring, horrible, unvarnished. Somehow, leftists can deceive themselves -- and you -- by a simple twist of language, and flaunt their racism right in your face. "We must work to ensure fairness for people of color" (but... who is "we"?) And then, "We must work to ensure fairness for colored people."

Whoa. It's glaring, as noted -- elitist, supremacist, racist. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the vaunted NAACP, has not changed its name because it is so imbedded, and the left simply tolerates it. Try asking, "Why do you say people of color instead of colored people?" and listen quietly if you can.

The "Other" Barack Hussein Obama

Back on the scene with bigger and better lies

"We had no scandals"
Scandals list huge, growing, getting worse, media coverup ongoing

The lamestream media told you:

Obama has broken his long silence and is back on the campaign trail, and it's hard not to refer to him as Mr. President, he's so smiling and positive all the time. What a breath of fresh air. And though he doesn't mention the current president by name, it's clear who he is referring to.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

An audio recording of a private speech delivered by Mr. Obama, delivered to a raucous crowd of hundreds of people attending a sports policy conference, was obtained by the magazine Reason and published. The remarks stunned the civilized world for their hubris and inaccuracy.

"We didn't have a scandal that embarrassed us," Obama said during the closed-door remarks in Boston at MIT's Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.

"Generally speaking, you didn't hear about a lot of drama inside our White House," he added.

Now that everyone carries an audio/video recording studio with them at all times, politicians will have to take extraordinary steps to prevent release of the truth. Attendees were told the remarks were strictly off-the-record and that recording or reporting on them wasn't allowed. A fat lot of good that did, luckily for the rest of the world.

"Our White House" was a veiled reference to the current administration, which is under withering non-stop attack from the so-called "news" media, which invents crises, comments on them, and then when they turn out to be proven fabrications, abandons them and moves on to new ones.

According to the audio obtained by Reason, Obama stuck largely to a set of post-presidential talking points he and his team have developed, including bemoaning people who claim climate change doesn't exist. See the separate story in this issue of Page Nine (#180) on computer modeling of Hurricane Florence, now dying out as we go to press.

Scandals that embarrassed Obama's White House:

Fast and Furious gun-running campaign
Murder of Agent Brian Terry on the Arizona border and coverup
Uranium One sale to Russians
$1.5 BILLION unmarked cash secretly shipped to Iranian Mullahs at night
Benghazi deaths, lies and coverup
Solyndra massively funded and failed
Secret Service hotel sex scandal
Associated Press phones wiretapped
Trump Tower wiretapped and repeated denials
FISA Court lied to and abused
Creation of phony Trump dossier
IRS used to target conservatives
Deliberate refusal to issue tax status to conservative groups
NSA mass illegal surveillance of citizens
Bowe Bergdahl defection, dereliction of duty
Bergdahl swap for terrorism jihadi murderers
California jihadi assault covered up as workplace violence
DOJ seizes journalists records
Attempt to ban gun ownership with secret police “no fly” list
Beyonce cited as role model for children by his wife Michelle
Cash for clunkers funding debacle
Obama phone giveaways at taxpayer expense
Total lies used to pass Obamacare—"Keep your doctor"
The Dept. of Veterans’ Affairs “untimely deaths”
Black Panther Party physical voter intimidation case dismissal
Favors and cash traded under Hillary’s State Dept. for influence and deals
Huma Abedeen, Anthony Weiner and Hillary carrying classified material on their private unsecured laptops
Destruction of 33,000 emails and related gear by Secretary of State Clinton
Twelve Russian generals directly involved in attempt to fix 2016 elections, indicted afterwards

"We didn't have a scandal that embarrassed us," --Barack Hussein Obama

Most perpetrators of these acts, many criminal felonies, remain unindicted and on the loose.
