    “Footage of John Fetterman Reveals a Man Who Is Not Alright”

    https://redstate.com/bonchie/2022/08/15/footage-of-john-fetterman-reveals-a-man-who-is-not-alright-n612353

    “Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman finally “returned” to the campaign trail after ignoring his doctor for years and suffering a massive stroke. That “return” looked a lot like box-checking for the senate candidate, though.

    In what was obviously a tightly controlled environment, Fetterman only appeared for 11 minutes, wearing a hoodie in summer weather and being backed up by his wife. Now, the first footage of the event has been revealed, and it shows a man who is not alright.”

    “Multiple times throughout his brief remarks, Fetterman, who is facing Republican Mehmet Oz, seemed to completely blank out before returning to his incredibly generic remarks. That’s almost certainly a remnant of the stroke and something that the Democrat has been unwilling to be transparent about. To this point, he’s hidden behind his social media personality, carefully crafted by staffers to make him appear quick-witted and funny. What was shown on that stage was anything but that, though.

    That’s a problem for Fetterman because his entire campaign has been predicated on an image that isn’t real. With the facade finally off, voters will finally see him for what he really is, which is an awkward, unhealthy man with radical positions.

    Is it any wonder Fetterman won’t agree to any debates? Imagine seeing that guy on stage for two hours and walking away still thinking he’s fit to be a US senator. Not only is he clearly suffering physically and mentally from the stroke, but there’s nothing articulate or engaging about him. That he’s spewing leftwing talking points that sound like they were lifted from a marginal Twitter account only makes things worse. Do Pennsylvanians want to eliminate the filibuster? Do they want a man who will just be a rubber stamp for whatever Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer shove in front of him?”

  2. Of course they did, because it would expose them.

    The affidavit will show the warrant was based on lies. Can’t have that.

  3. Strange that there are no ads on Fox Atlanta for Governor Kemp, and only a few for Stacey Abrams. Hershel Walker and Senator Warnock ads dominate and make them both look really bad. Good time to fall back on the old reliable of voting for platform. I told Art that maybe we see no ads for Kemp because it is Fox and the need for ads there is assumed to be little. There is one ad against him about the abortion issue. It’s one lady after another saying such things as “I can now be prosecuted for having a miscarriage.”

  4. That will be their tactics until the election, as if women are the only ones voting. They can’t run on their platform, voters don’t support it. So it will be all about the “I can’t kill my baby!” crowd. Playing to their base.

    “Jim Jordan: 14 FBI Whistleblowers Came Forward Against DOJ After Mar-a-Lago Raid”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/08/jim-jordan-14-fbi-whistleblowers-have-come-forward-against-doj-after-mar-a-lago-raid/

    “Fourteen FBI agents have come to our office as whistleblowers, and they are good people,” Jordan told Fox News. “There are lots of good people in the FBI. It’s the top that is the problem.”

    “Some of these good agents are coming to us, telling us … what’s going on—the political nature now of the Justice Department … talking about the school board issue, about a whole host of issues,” he added.

    Two months ago, Jordan said that six FBI whistleblowers approached the committee. Two came forward in relation to a school board memo and four in connection to the Jan. 6 Capitol breach. In the Senate, meanwhile, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said in July that whistleblowers had come to his office to provide information, including disclosures relating to investigations into Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings.

    “It’s becoming a well-worn trail of agents who say this has got to stop, and thank goodness for them and that American people recognize it, and I believe they’re going to make a big change on November 8,” Jordan said Sunday, referring to the 2022 midterm elections.”

  9. Of course, because they can’t stop him in the voting booth, so this is the only avenue they have left. Use corrupt people and courts to do what they can’t.

    So what else have they fudged?

    “FBI returns Trump passports that never appeared on search inventory”

    https://hotair.com/ed-morrissey/2022/08/16/hmmm-fbi-returns-trump-passports-that-never-appeared-on-search-inventory-n489959

    “A curious development indeed, especially after yesterday’s pas de deux over whether the FBI took Donald Trump’s passports — and why. Trump claimed that FBI agents “stole my three Passports,” while the Department of Justice remained silent about it until late in the day.

    Now there are two questions to ask after this NBC News report: why did FBI agents take them in the first place, and why did the inventory from the seizure not list them?

    Passports belonging to Donald Trump have been returned to the former president after last week’s FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago home, a Justice Department official told NBC News on Monday.

    The FBI acknowledged it had had the passports the same day Trump said on his social media platform that FBI agents who conducted the search on Aug. 8 took them.

    That’s not exactly a sterling level of accountability. It took Trump a week to notice that the passports were missing, or at least a week to go public with it. His social-media post announcing the “theft” appeared yesterday at 12:22 ET; the raid took place on the morning of Monday, August 8. The FBI left with a dozen or so boxes of material, which sounds like a lot but is actually rather paltry in legal cases, as Andrew McCarthy noted in an earlier column at National Review. If this search was as acutely necessary as the DoJ claims, shouldn’t the FBI have realized they had his passports almost immediately — and returned them days ago?

    That’s a third question. Let’s stick with the first two. Why would the FBI have taken Trump’s passports as part of a search purportedly aimed at retrieving classified material? Passports don’t have anything to do with Trump’s retention of allegedly classified material, nor would they have any material connection to the DoJ’s investigation into January 6, which this search warrant appears to facilitate sotto voce. Law enforcement can’t just take a person’s passport without a judicial order restricting a person’s travel. Trump hasn’t even been charged with any crime, let alone be made subject to such a bail condition. He has every right to travel outside the US, and every right to retain his passports.

    The FBI suggested that the removal of the passports was an accident:

    “In executing search warrants, the FBI follows search and seizure procedures ordered by courts, then returns items that do not need to be retained for law enforcement purposes,” the spokesperson said in a statement Monday evening that did not mention the passports.

    This seems like an odd explanation. Trump almost certainly did not store his passports with the government documents that the search warrant targeted. Those are items usually stored in a secured personal space, like a safe or perhaps a locked desk drawer (or maybe a dresser drawer?). It’s not the kind of item that would have been easily swept up by accident even in a broad search, in other words. It’s possible, but appears unlikely unless this was one of the clumsiest search-and-retrieval operations conducted by the FBI.

    That brings us to the second question: Why weren’t the passports listed on the inventory? FBI agents certainly know what passports look like. The inventory is a legal record of everything the FBI took out of Trump’s home in executing the search. There may be some understandable fuzziness on the identity of each and every single sheet of paper in those boxes, but passports are unique and instantly recognizable — and look nothing like the documents in question. The inventory was specific enough on August 8 to include separate entries for “handwritten note,” “Executive Grant of Clemency re: Roger Jason Stone Jr,” and two entries logging “binder of photos.

    But no one noticed three passports? Again, this either indicates that the FBI conducted this raid in an incredibly sloppy manner, or something else is afoot.”

    “Trump Accused of Lying Over FBI-Seized Passports, Then He Dropped the Receipts”

    https://redstate.com/bonchie/2022/08/15/trump-accused-of-lying-over-fbi-seized-passports-then-he-dropped-the-receipts-n612840

    “As RedState reported on Monday, Donald Trump accused the FBI of taking his passports during the unprecedented raid of his Florida residence. According to the former president, three passports were taken during the search, which apparently went far beyond just recovering supposedly classified documents that threatened “national security.”

    Predictably, after Trump made the claim, the press quickly jumped into the fray to call him a liar. Norah O’Donnell of CBS News claimed via a source that the FBI was “not in possession of former President Trump’s passports.””

    “When I saw that report from O’Donnell, I put out my own post questioning the phrasing. “Not in possession of” is very specific wording that could have simply meant the FBI had passed them on to another agency. Why not just say “we didn’t take the passports” if they didn’t take the passports?

    Well, as it turns out, Trump’s team was ready and waiting with the receipts that showed the press narrative was a falsehood.”

    “Incredibly (or perhaps not so), instead of admitting their mistake, members of the press rushed out to somehow make the revelation about…Trump’s supposed dishonesty.”

    “So let me get this straight. The FBI did indeed seize Trump’s passports, which seems incredibly improper given what was legally allowed to be taken by the warrant, and that’s somehow his fault? A passport is not something you just accidentally grab, thinking it’s a presidential record. It’s the kind of thing that an agent purposely took and knew exactly what they were taking. Yet, the big gotcha here is that Trump was wrong about the expiration date on one of the passports. It’s absurd.

    The big story here is that the FBI took the passports in the first place. It is not that Trump shared an email that ended up embarrassing the bureau’s leadership, who were apparently content to keep lying about the matter via leaks until the former president exposed them. Now, the mainstream media wants to pretend like the seizure was just an honest mistake that shouldn’t be held against the FBI. Yeah, that’s not how any of this works.”

    “The press and the DOJ working together to push a false narrative isn’t surprising, but that doesn’t make it any less improper and corrupt. “

  12. Yesterday, President Trump accused the DOJ of seizing his passports — a move which would be clearly illegal absent prior Court authorization. According to the same WSJ article, the DOJ then admitted that, whoopsies, it HAD “accidentally” taken three of Trump’s passports (two were expired) and offered to return them at a place and time convenient to the DOJ.

  13. The Dems are indeed desperate… their policies are destroying the country, and everyone with common sense can see it happening. They falsely accuse others of their own dirty deeds. They have utter contempt for the Constitution and the rule of law.

    They are trying everything in their dirty bag of tricks to stop it, but Americans’ love, admiration and support for Pres. Trump just continues to grow (esp. after the latest charade).

    Now, they are even trying to provoke a violent reaction from Conservatives, and we all know why…

    Joe Biden today is taking credit for being able to buy hearing aids over the counter.

    He fails to mention how the Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act that allowed for this to happen was passed in 2017 and signed into law by President Donald J. Trump.
