RUSSIANS INDICTED

While the Special Council finally started going down the road of his massive Russian investigation, his recent indictment of 13 Ruskies provides some key insights. No doubt both sides of the issue will cherry pick elements of the document for their own purposes.
But two statements in the Indictment bear closer examination.

1. “There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity.”

While many Trump supporters got excited about it, there are dangers lurking in that text. The danger is in the words “...in this indictment.” Any lawyer can see the problem because those words leave a gaping hole for “other indictments” in the future.

In short, Trump and Company MAY NOT be totally cleared yet on the collusion issue. Of course, the Obstruction of Justice charge still looms.

2. “There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”

This does seem to be a clear and unambiguous admission that Russians did not alter the course of the election. While that’s hardly news, it does clear the air a bit and puts a short leash on the media and Democrats for a while. Russians tried but failed.

It means Hillary lost the election fair and square despite paying the Russians for the Steele dossier to get dirt on Trump. That’s where the real collusion occurred. Perhaps Mueller will disclose that malfeasance. Don’t hold your breath, however.

Democrat and Media Hypocrisy on Display

It’s an absolute joy to watch Liberals meltdown over this secret House Memo about FBI malfeasance. It’s the most amazing example of nuclear hypocrisy since Hillary Clinton’s comment that all women who claim sexual harassment should be believed.

Democrats and their media sycophants now claim that releasing the Memo will cause irreparable harm to the FBI and US intelligence agencies. That is the first time in the history of the Republic that Democrats have ever expressed concern for the well-being of America’s law enforcement/intelligence agencies.

Remember the 1975 Church Committee? Lead by Democrat Senator Frank Church, that panel publicly skewered the CIA and revealed sources, methods, and tactics despite pleadings from the CIA that such revelations would harm national security. Democrats and media types cheered the whole process.

Remember the Pentagon Papers? Despite strenuous attempts by the Nixon Administration to halt the publication of those Top Secret documents that outlined abuses by the military in Vietnam because their release would discredit the military and cause harm to national security. Democrats and media types cheered the whole process. Hollywood even made a movie about the heroic efforts of Daniel Ellsberg and the Washington Post who published the papers.

Remember Edward Snowden? He stole critical intelligence and software from the National Security Agency in 2013. Democrats and media types cheered and called Snowden a hero whistleblower.

Remember the CIA Torture Report? In 2014, Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein released a damning report about the CIA’s torture program used against terrorists despite repeated pleadings by the CIA that releasing the Report would cause harm to national security. Democrats and media types cheered the whole process.

But now Democrats and media types warn against releasing a memo about the Trump Investigation because it will cause irreparable harm to the FBI and US intelligence agencies. How absurd!

Remember when the media refused to publish leaked documents harmful to the US Government? NO, YOU DON’T BECAUSE IT NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.

Centurion is ambivalent about the Berkeley riots. On one hand, it’s a shame that a major university and the adjacent businesses had to endure property damage just because a bunch of idiot liberals decided that the First Amendment doesn’t apply if they don’t agree with the speaker’s point of view.

On the other hand, Berkeley University and many other colleges taught most of those idiot liberals to hate America and capitalism. Students are taught that they are “special” and traditional values are bad.  It’s no wonder that some of those spoiled-brat students resort to violence when things don’t go their way. And only one (1) of those rioters was arrested. Shame on you Berkeley.

As the Bible says..” As you sow, so shall you reap.”​                                                                                       2/7/17
