Alan Dershowitz Makes Bombshell Claim About Obama And Soros

By PoliZette Staff | February 18, 2020

Fox News reports that Harvard Professor and Trump impeachment defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz is claiming, in a startling new bombshell, that Barack Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate the political enemies of far left globalist leader George Soros.

If true, that while president Obama tried to use his own Justice Department as a tool to do the bidding of Soros, heads could roll in a controversy that could engulf DC for some time. It could tank any future political ambitions of Michelle Obama and ensnare the Obama era FBI in yet another cauldron of contention.

“There was a lot of White House control of the Justice Department during the Kennedy administration and I don’t think we saw very many liberal professors arguing against that,” said Dershowitz in an interview with Breitbart News, putting the subject in historical perspective.

“I have some information as well about the Obama administration – which will be disclosed in a lawsuit at some point, but I’m not prepared to disclose it now – about how President Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of George Soros, who was a close ally of his.”

Dershowitz went on: “We’ve seen this kind of White House influence on the Justice Department virtually in every Justice Department. The difference: This president is much more overt about it, he tweets about it. President Obama whispered to the Justice Department about it. And, I don’t think these 1,000 former Justice Department officials would pass the shoe-on-the-other-foot test. Maybe some of them would, but a good many of them wouldn’t.”

Dershowitz is referencing an open letter by Democrat and Obama era DOJ employees asking Bill Barr to resign as Attorney General over alleged misdeeds involving the Roger Stone case.

He concluded with more words on his charge against Obama and Soros, “That’s going to come out in a lawsuit in the near future, yeah. That is not unusual. People whisper to presidents all the time; presidents whisper to the Justice Department all the time. It’s very common; it’s wrong, whoever does it — but it’s common, and we shouldn’t think it’s unique to any particular president. I have in my possession the actual 302 [witness report] form which documents this issue and it will at the right time come out, but I’m not free to disclose it now because it’s a case that’s not yet been filed.”

This is political dynamite. The left is no doubt already readying the spin. But if Dershowitz is not bluffing or exaggerating, this time spin may not be enough.

Gowdy to Dems Calling For Barr Resignation: “Dumbest Damn Thing I’ve Ever Heard”

Former House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy blasted Democrats demanding the resignation of Attorney General Bill Barr, calling it the “dumbest damn thing (he’s) ever heard.”

The left has been in quite a tizzy after President Trump lashed out at federal prosecutors via Twitter for recommending an excessive prison sentence for former associate Roger Stone.

The Department of Justice earlier this week revealed that they would seek a reduction of the “extreme” sentencing request – nine years – setting off a firestorm of controversy that culminated in four career prosecutors quitting the case one by one.

The issue seems to be a matter of timing. The announcement was made after Trump’s tweet, giving the impression that Barr and the DOJ were reacting to the comments.

Gowdy says none of it is true.

He’s Seen Some Pretty Dumb Things

The former Representative from South Carolina has certainly seen some dumb things during his career, but this one apparently takes the cake. The argument is two-fold.

First, Gowdy agrees with the President that Stone’s sentence is beyond the pale.

“There are child pornographers, people who rob banks who do not get nine years,” he noted before advising that a sentence of two or three years would be more appropriate.

Second, he explains that there is roughly a zero percent chance Barr was swayed by the President’s comments.

“I can tell you this: Bill Barr was aware of this recommendation before President Trump ever tweeted a single syllable, a single character,” said Gowdy. “So the notion that Barr was somehow motivated to move because of this tweet is just factually wrong.”

“The notion that Barr should resign is about the dumbest damn thing I’ve ever heard,” Gowdy added.

Barr Is Fully Within His Rights

To absolutely nobody’s surprise, Democrats, permanently housed in their perpetual outrage echo chamber, are using the DOJ’s actions as their latest effort to force an administration member out of office.

Senators Elizabeth Warren and Richard Blumenthal demanded Barr step down on Wednesday. The House Judiciary Committee promised to interrogate him over his handling of the sentencing during a hearing in late March.

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused Trump and his administration of operating like a “failed-state fascist.”

There has even been talk of more articles of impeachment.

“I can tell you this: Bill Barr was aware of this recommendation before President Trump ever tweeted a single syllable, a single character,” explained Gowdy. “So the notion that Barr was somehow motivated to move because of this tweet is just factually wrong.”

And while the former Rep. wishes Trump – or any other President – would cease weighing in on ongoing investigations, he concluded that he was well within his rights to commute Stone’s sentence or pardon him, should he so desire.

“He could do it [pardon Stone] by tweet tonight,” insisted Gowdy. “He’s the head of the executive branch and people have a chance in November if they want a different one.”

Imagine the outrage when President Trump announces Stone’s pardon via tweet. That will be about the “dumbest damned thing you’ll ever see.”

Until the next faux outrage.

New Trump Impeachment Push For Democrats Over Roger Stone Affair?

By David Kamioner | February 12, 2020

In the desire of Democrats to put the country last and their own pathological quests for power at the forefront, the Jerry Nadler-led House Judiciary Committee will bring Attorney General Bill Barr to testify in front of them on March 31st. Why?

As part of a story they will embellish between now and then. Democrats will make the case that President Trump pressured his Justice Department and Barr to lower the amount of time in jail federal prosecutors recommended for former Trump associate Roger Stone.

Silly?

These are the same guys who put the nation through a quickdraw impeachment over a phone call. Now going into an election year with no cudgel to bash Trump with they have hit upon this to start the hysteria all over again.

The feds sought between 87-108 months in prison for the 67 year old Stone, who was convicted on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering, and making false statements to Congress during the Mueller investigation. Normal federal sentencing guidelines in such cases call for 15-21 months. The federal prosecutors in the case contend that Stone’s actions post indictment, including violating a social media gag imposed by the judge, warrant the much harsher sentence.

AG Bill Barr and other top Justice Department officials did not agree and reversed the call of their own lawyers for the tougher penalty. At that, four of the federal prosecutors handling the case resigned. President Trump is said to be considering giving Stone a pardon.

The Dems may feature those four former feds as star witnesses. The lawyers know that national publicity like this will enhance their professional careers now that they have left federal service. So they, much like the witnesses in the last impeachment drama, would insinuate, but have no proof, that the president intervened to help Stone.

But lack of facts don’t ever stop Democrats.

They will make up stories of a cabal of Trump loyalists in the DOJ that conspired to pervert the course of justice to spare a Trump loyalist. As for the loyalist, Stone has a show pony reputation in DC. He goes out of his way to gain the spotlight every chance he gets.

All this will be timed around the GOP convention and the fall campaign.

Is this a lock? Will it happen for sure? No.

But the chance of the U.S. having to endure another Democratic misadventure is enough to get ready for it.

Oh joy.

CNN’s Brian Stelter Tries To Attack Fox News For Ignoring Major Trump Story – It Immediately Backfires

By PoliZette Staff | February 12, 2020

CNN’s Brian Stelter tried to call out Fox News for ignoring a major story about Donald Trump on Tuesday, but his attempts to humiliate the network immediately backfired when social media users let him know that Fox had in fact broken the story.

“Fox and MSNBC leading the 1pm hour with NH primary hype,” Stelter tweeted on Tuesday afternoon. “CNN leading with breaking news: ‘DOJ STUNS WITH EXTRAORDINARY REVERSAL ON STONE SENTENCING.'”

Stelter was claiming that Fox was ignoring the major story of the Department of Justice pushing for a lower sentence for Roger Stone, a convicted former associate of Trump’s, despite prosecutors within the DOJ seeking a seven to nine year sentence, according to The Blaze.

Unfortunately for Stelter, he soon learned that he was dead wrong, as social media users pointed out that it was Fox News who broke this story in the first place.

“Fox News broke the friggin story,” replied Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller, with The Federalist’s Sean Davis responding, “Fox News broke that story, you incompetent buffoon.”

Other users pointed out Stelter’s mistake as well:

Stelter is clearly just jealous that Fox News absolutely dominates CNN in the ratings. In fact, the week of Trump’s acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial was the fifth most-watched week in the history of the network, and it’s highest since the president’s inauguration, according to Axios.

On top of that, of the forty most-watched shows on basic cable last week, 39 were on Fox. The only other one to break the top forty was Rachel Maddow’s MSBNC show, and none of CNN’s shows were able to break through.

In 2019, CNN saw a 9% decline in total viewers, so it’s no wonder Stelter is feeling bitter. He can try to discredit Fox as much as he wants to, but it’s not going to stop the rest of us from tuning in to the one cable news network we can actually trust to bring us the truth.

DOJ: Down Syndrome Is No Justification for Abortion

By David Kamioner | January 23, 2020

In a move that is sure to win favor with pro-lifers present at the March for Life in DC on Friday, the Trump Department of Justice Wednesday announced it was siding with the state of Ohio regarding a controversial bill that does not permit doctors to perform abortions solely on the basis of a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome.

A physician performing the procedure on a child with the condition would face a fourth-degree felony charge, loss of their medical license, and other legal damages. The law will be brought before the 6th Court of Appeals for a decision.

The U.S. Supreme Court has found that any legislative measure that “substantially burdens” a female from terminating a pregnancy through abortion is unconstitutional. The Trump DOJ argues that “nothing in Ohio’s [Down syndrome] law creates a substantial obstacle to women obtaining an abortion.”

It is stupefying that, after totalitarian experiments in eugenics (the supposed process of improving races and the species by selective breeding and birth), and our own dangerous walk down that path in the early 20th century, that there are those who would advocate killing unborn infants on the basis of health superiority.

Though sadly, there is precedence.

The eugenics movement was once so influential in America that even a respected jurist such as Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. said in the majority opinion in the 1927 Buck v. Bell case, the case concerned eugenics measures in Virginia, that “It would be strange if it (Virginia) could not call upon those who already sap the strength of the State for these lesser sacrifices, often not felt to be such by those concerned, to prevent our being swamped with incompetence.

It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind.” Holmes concluded, “Three generations of imbeciles are enough”.

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, along with many other prominent individuals and organizations, also supported eugenics.
After the cold-blooded theory thankfully lost credence in the United States it was employed en masse by Nazi Germany to genocidal results.
That is the legacy those who wish to abort Down syndrome babies take on as their own.
However, the state of Ohio and the Trump DOJ do not ascribe to these inhumane notions. We are a better nation because they don’t.
