The top Leadership and Investigators of the FBI and the Justice Department have politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats and against Republicans – something which would have been unthinkable just a short time ago. Rank & File are great people!

The mainstream media didn’t get its way on Friday when the controversial memo detailing alleged government surveillance abuses was released.
But instead of focusing on the contents, the liberal media members who had reservations about the document’s release are harping on negative reactions to President Trump’s decision to make it public.
The House Intelligence Committee released the memo about alleged abuses involving FISA, or the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, dn Friday afternoon after news organizations such as The New York Times and The Washington Post criticized the decision to do so.
The polarizing memo had liberal media members howling that its release would pose a risk to national security less than 24 hours ago, but the same pundits are now calling it a “dud” and mocking conservatives for overhyping its content.
“It falls well short of what some Republicans promised: to cast doubt on the origins of the Russia investigation,” a prominent bullet point on The Times’ website said shortly after the release.
The home page of The Washington Post featured a trio of headlines that played down the content of the memo, “Ongoing battle between White House and FBI intensifies after memo’s release,” Sentence buried in GOP memo may undercut Trump efforts to discredit Russia probe,” and an opinion piece, “The White House’s laughable spin that releasing the memo is all about ‘transparency,’” were all prominently displayed.
The Associated Press’ wire was packed with angry reaction to the memo and offered very little about what the document actually said. AP pieces about the memo led with lines including “Attorney General Jeff Sessions is defending his deputy in the face of criticism from the president,” “House Democrats are angry about the release of a classified GOP memo” and “The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee is challenging the accuracy of a memo.”
A giant headline across the HuffPost page simply stated, “Meh-morandum: This thing’s a dud!”
Former FBI Director James Comey blasted the “dishonest” and “misleading” memo, saying it “inexcusably exposed” classified investigations. Several news organizations used Comey’s reaction as their hook in stories playing down the memo, with splashy headlines using the former FBI chief’s negative reaction.
Meanwhile, reporters from both CNN and MSNBC have been accused on social media of misleading viewers regarding the content of the memo. NBC News’ Katy Tur “fixed” an inaccurate tweet after critics called her out, while CNN’s Jim Sciutto has been criticized for saying that Republicans first paid for the disputed Steele dossier.
Others have picked on the way the memo was written.
NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell said the language in the memo is “mischievous,” while Vox founder Ezra Klein said it read like a “Breitbart article.”
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued a statement ridiculing the media coverage of the memo, saying it deserved “Watergate-like media coverage.”
“Now that the memo is public, the media owe it to the American people to report this story fairly and truthfully,” he wrote. “We have witnessed over a year of an unparalleled, deliberate effort by the press to remove a president they despise, and it is time they are held accountable.”
The Vanguard of the Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media, weren’t the only ones acting as if there was nothing to the FISA Memo.
Liberals Trolls on Websites and Facebook spent the day avoiding addressing the revelations found within the 4-page document, deflecting challenges from Conservatives as if they were a goalie in the Stanley Cup.
Between the MSM and the Internet Trolls, the whole mess seemed like Placebo Day in a Hospital Psych Ward.
Does anyone else have the feeling that these “news reports” concerning the release of the FISA Memo were written days in advance?
That would explain how far off the MSM was in their criticism from what average Americans were experiencing while reading the memos.
Now, regarding those Internet Trolls losing their minds yesterday…
It’s amazing how websites are a reflection of our Political Reality.
Every website and Facebook Page, where there is political discussion, unless they are just Pro-one-way-or-the-other, puts out a plea for civil discourse in the discussions that happen between commenters on their site.
Unfortunately, though, that never seems to happen. And, why is that?
If you are an Internet – Surfing Political Junkie like me, at some time or another, you have no doubt run into an aggravating, bitter, whiney individual, commonly referred to as an “Internet Troll”.
In America, most Internet Trolls belong to the Liberal Political Ideology (whether they admit it, or not).
In our American culture today, the art of civil discourse has degenerated into a shouting match. This wouldn’t be so bad, if both sides had the right to shout equally as loud as the other side.
The problem is, for some reason, Conservatives are expected to mind our manners, be meek and mild, and follow the Marquis of Queensberry rules, while Liberals, libertarians, and self-identified “Moderates” (Social Liberals) call us everything but a child of God.
Liberal Trolls and their activity on the Internet are simply an extension of our culture at large.
Liberalism has always been a failed political ideology. It has never been embraced by the majority of Americans.
As a result of that undeniable fact,, Liberal Activists, especially Internet Trolls, are dirty, manipulative, little cowards, who overestimate their power….and, their own intelligence.
You see, Liberal Democrats, including the “Trolling” variety, both paid and unpaid, expect average Conservative Americans to behave like a dog who has been whipped too much, and go cower in a corner and allow them to insult us, and walk all over us in our online “discussions”.
Their expectation of Conservative Behavior is predicated on the fact that they know that we were raised right, usually by two parents, and that the majority of us are Christians, and are reluctant to have an out-of-body experience on an Internet Chat Board or Political Facebook Page, telling them where to go and the temperature when they get there.
Therefore, Liberal Democrats feel as if they can take advantage of the good nature of American Conservatives, and walk all over us.
Well, I’ve got some news for them.
As a Christian American Conservative, I do my best to live my faith, every day.
However, boys and girls, don’t forget… Jesus ran the money changers out of the temple.
And, judging from average Americans’ reactions to the FISA Memo, a bunch of Deep State Bureaucrats in the DOJ and the FBI are about to be run out of their “temples”, as well.
Liberals have been used to being able to bully the rest of us into “shutting up” for the entire 8 years of the reign of King Barack The First.
Now, with Donald J. Trump doing a magnificent job as President of the United States of America and the spigot on the fountain of information about the FISA Memo being turned wide open, Liberals are experiencing cognitive dissonance as they never have before.
Average Americans simply will not be bullied into not believing what they have seen and read.
The FISA Memo is consequential and tells a story of Democratic Corruption which will undoubtedly not end well for those FBI Agents who took part in the treasonous actions against Presidential Candidate/President Donald J. Trump.
No matter how the Main Stream Media and Internet Trolls try to spin it.
Until He Comes,
