Peter Unprincipled

Things got very contentious yesterday as highly-ranked rogue FBI agent (and wife-cheating sexual hound dog) Peter Strzok was questioned by the House Judiciary Committee about the screamingly obvious political bias he brought to two huge investigations.

In Hillary Clinton's email case, he declared her innocent long before completing the investigation or even interviewing her. In the Trump/Russia case, he decided that Trump was guilty and should be impeached before interviewing a single witness.

Put simply, this one high-powered official basically raped the American electoral system and the integrity of the FBI and is now desperately trying to cover his keister.

Not that he didn't have plenty of help during his questioning. No member of the GOP could get out more than a syllable of questioning before some Democrat nitwit would scream "point of order!" or "objection!" or "Whoohee! The jute mill is exploded!" just to stall the proceedings and keep Strzok from admitting his perfidy.

Sadly, there was no divine intervention of the sort shown in today's cartoon, which rather surprises us. After all, even though lightning is an unwieldy instrument of vengeance, we can't imagine that any collateral damage in Strzok's immediate surroundings would have been much of a loss.

REPUB: Gotcha!
Strzok: I didn' do nuffin'!
Strzok: I'm an honorable man, I don't ever lie...just ask my wife.

I now doubt that any of the deep state criminals in D.C. will ever be brought to justice. Now it appears that lying under oath, withholding information, and ignoring congressional subpoenas altogether has become commonplace and acceptable.
Our Justice Department and the agencies that enforce our laws are becoming impotent entities.
If the minions can get around the rule of law so easily, the criminal kingpins - such as Hillary - will never be prosecuted and their stench will continue to destroy our country. IMHO.

Sandra J. Brown said...

Justice? Gone
Rule of Law? Gone
Where's the money? Gone
Until that pack of no hopers, liars and dangerous traitors have been prosecuted in a court of law, not congress, draining the swamp will be another Herculean task left for the last honest man standing.

Did you notice that one gal from NJ never got the memo on how to pronounce his name? Kept calling him Stro-zak!

Fish Out of Water said...

There are days such as what was witnessed yesterday, that makes me believe as a country, we need a do over.

Jim Irre said...

There were a couple of Republicans who asked some tough questions, but largely the R's were useless. Why the chairman didn't tell them dems to to shutup or he'd have them removed is beyond me. Strozk should be put before a firing squad as should others. Primarily because the prisons are full.

Judi King said...

I don't think I've ever seen anyone with such an arrogant, smug expression on it's face. I fear this is just another useless circus and nothing will come of it. Did they really think he'd admit to bias, etc.?

James Daily said...

Does not that interview beg the question of if he were not bias why did the demorats continually sabotaged the interview? His gal pal telling the committee to stick it?
If she shows up today, it will be the fifth continually. Actually my main problem is with the AG. What a weak, ineffective loser that needs to be replaced with someone that would go after these crooks hammer and tong. Anyways, his bias should be dealt with in a federal court because he really needs to become Bubba's main squeeze in prison. I will make this prediction: If the FBI is not held accountable, this lawlessness will come back to haunt them every time they indict anyone.

Fred Ciampi said...

IMHO, and I think many agree, this ain't going to be settled until the second Civil War. The swamp cannot be drained one teaspoon at a time. Sad to say (or even think it) but a 'Night of the Long Knives' is needed and long overdue. And when it happens, the Bolsheviks will look like Girl Scouts. There are just too many (63KK) well trained, well armed, old, and pissed off folks in this country; veterans and otherwise. May God have mercy on our country.

Here is the REST of that Baby Trump balloon, Velveeta Processed Cheese Food:

It is truly a shame that the FBI clearly has to recruit from the dregs of "Law Enforcement" candidates in this country. Clearly all the "good cops" end up at local or state "Law Enforcement" organizations, since it's simply not possible that such lies, fraud, corruption, and treason could be rampant in every "Law Enforcement" entity in this nation. The FBI just scrapes the bottom of the barrel for what's left over.

Or not...

Honestly I am dumbfounded by the shear arrogance of this man and his lover. He has placed our country on a path of destruction while claiming moral high ground. We need to keep the heat on these people...contact your congressional representative, donate to the good guys who are fighting this mess and support our president.

Sortahwitte said...

What a smarm. Matched only by comey. Arrogance and ignorance in one sack.
If he lies to his wife, he'll lie about anything. And he is doing exactly that.
Will his slut testify too?

Rod said...

This episode was the best campaign ad yet leading up to the mid-terms this fall; but I'm with those thinking it's going to take a lot more than that.

Mike Porter said...

The upside in all of this is that America was given a clear view of this bastard being exactly what he his; an absolute douche-nozzle. I believe this was the intended effect in having the grilling made public... and you've not seen anything yet. Wait until they turn the Page.

If nothing else, Mr. Trump knows his showmanship. It would seem to me that he is keenly aware of the fact that there is no political upside to 'doing the right thing' straight out of the gate. The audience needs to be gently lead to the spectacle that is to come, as all the while they grow more sympathetic to the protagonist. Fire Mueller? Not on your life... not with these rising poll numbers.

And lest we forget, the 'walk-away' movement is no aberration... only a Grand Master Level Troll could tweet the opposition into losing their shit so completely as to shock the otherwise loyal troops into a state of 'wokeness' that no one saw coming. Who knew that the first brave souls stepping out of the closet would be a black rapper or a homosexual hairdresser? Hmmm. Who indeed?

Pass the popcorn, as they say.

Bob Lee said...

I always thought Spy Craft 101 was to find a schmuck that you could blackmail into stealing state secrets for you. Did anyone ask Peter why he put national security at great risk by cheating on his wife?

Unknown said...

The hierarchy of the FBI is the proof of the old saying, "$hit floats." 99.9% of the FBI agents are fine, honorable men and womenwho are as horrified as the rest of us at what is going on. It's the 0.1% at the very top that is rotten and needs to be disposed of.

TrickyRicky said...

@Mike Porter- Well said. I am enthusiastic about President Trump's accomplishments so far. I agree that his ability to make the left's heads explode and goading them into dropping their masks (abolish ICE) is phenomenal and bodes well for the mid-terms and the 2020 general election. With that being said, I'm not sure what his strategy is pertaining to draining the swamp. Firing Mueller at this point would certainly be a big mistake, and that probably applies to Wray and others. He could with one stroke declassify all of the pertinent documents to blow this thing wide open, but I agree with your observation that the low info public needs to be gently led to the incontrovertible truth first, since the "media" is doing their damnedest to keep the truth from the public. I doubt that Clinton or Obama will ever see justice, but I still hope for the likes of these arrogant FBI pukes, Lynch, Brennan and so many others to go to jail for a significant amount of time.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Velveeta Processed Cheese Food- I sort of like the Big Baby Trump balloon, because I imagine all the progressives shaking in fear as it drifts over their heads, casting its oppressive shadow. Even wearing a diaper, they're actually terrified of him.

@Gee M- I couldn't watch too long, because I suddenly felt a need to wield a whiffle bat to explain some points of order.

@Geoff King- I'd like to pounce on any part of your statement and say I disagree. But I don't. Did we really get closer to any kind of justice yesterday, or was it just more bread and circuses? Sadly, I think it's the latter.

@Sandra J. Brown- I completely agree.

@Mike aka Proof- I imagine he's been called worse.

@Fish Out of Water- I agree. As long as one party in a two party system is dedicated to enabling villainy, we'll never get things cleaned up. The founding fathers deliberately made governing hard to keep it from operating on whims. But I don't think they could ever have imagined the size and strength of the anti-Constitutional Left that our nation is afflicted with.

@Jim Irre- I kept waiting for the chairman to call for the Sergeant at Arms to start hauling people off to the pokey. It should have happened repeatedly.

@Judi King- Strzok appears to me to be a genuinely evil man, entrusted with way too much power. And yesterday he had the smug confidence of a man who knew that huge and powerful forces were in play to protect his sorry ass.

@James Daily- I'll just flat out declare that as long as Strzok and his ilk run free, I have zero respect for the FBI in particular and the DOJ in general. Even under Trump, I assume that these organizations are being run at many levels by swamp dwellers.

And I agree that the Democrats were awfully motivated to not let Strzok speak or answer questions. Sort of a funny way to get the truth out, isn't it?

@Fred Ciampi- I hope and pray that you're wrong. But I agree that things aren't going to get substantially cleaned up using the current methodologies.

Mark Matis said...

If ANY of the the FBI agents or DoJ prosecutors were "...fine, honorable men and women who are as horrified as the rest of us at what is going on..., the sewage would have gone to the gallows a LONG time ago. That barrel is rotten to its very core. May every one of them soon burn in hell where they belong for their lies, fraud, corruption, treason, and sedition. The stench goes back at least to 1975 with Whitey Bulger. And continues unabated at ALL levels ever since then.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Mark Matis- I'm not sure the FBI was accepting rotten agents or actively looking to recruit them. And I think that Strzok is a great example of the truism that in the swamp, pond scum rises.

@Dave N.- There is that saying about what happens to those who forget history...

@steve on the left coast- I completely agree. It's stunning to me that those on the Left still claim to be upset about Russia "meddling" in our election process when we see what happened on THEIR side: Hillary basically bought her candidacy (by buying the DNC and sabotaging Bernie), the Obama administration subverted the entire DOJ in order to keep Hillary out of jail and on the ballot, and the FBI (and others) tried to undermine Trump's candidacy and, when that failed, tried to frame and impeach a newly elected President. Even the worst case scenario of their fake meddling is a pin prick compared to the real desecration of the electoral process committed by the Left.

@Sortahwitte- A man who violates his marital oath and his professional oath has zero credibility "under oath." Liars lie.

@Rod- The usual forces don't seem to apply anymore when it comes to predicting the midterms. The electorate is too polarized, too volatile and, frequently, too stupid for long range predictions to be accurate.

@Mike Porter- I wish America was given a clear view of these proceedings, but I'm sure that very few saw real time coverage - and nothing else will be accurate. Take a look on Google news and you'll see innumerable stories claiming that Strzok handed an arrogant Trey Gowdy his ass. That's what the other side will take away from this.

And I agree with your takes on Trump's showmanship and the #WalkAway movement. These are exciting times. And not always in a good way.

@Bob Lee- I didn't see the whole session, but someone sure as hell should have asked that. For that matter, someone should have asked "Did you perhaps go easy on Hillary Clinton, a woman infamous for being cheated on by her husband, to ease your conscience about cheating on your own wife?"

@Unknown- I have no doubt that the vast majority of the FBI agents are outstanding people. Sadly, I don't care. The corrupt ones may be in the minority, but are highly enough placed to ruin the credibility of the entire operation.

TrickyRicky- Good points all!

@Mark Matis- Good point. If the FBI has made any significant effort at clearing the rats off their ship, they should let us know the details ASAP. Otherwise, we can assume that a vast number of folks at the FBI simply look away from the misdeeds of those in the organization (when not actively helping them).

REM1875 said...

And to the media stroz is such a victim ...... Hard to believe listening to the media that this just isn't a witch hunt over an anti -Trump text....
We are the intended victim ....... Not him....

John the Econ said...

I was laser-focused committing capitalism yesterday, so I didn't partake of any of the Strzok hearings. Looks like I didn't miss much; just the usual beclownment with Republicans asking questions and Democrats cheering Strzok's commitment to deep-state integrity. Either way, citizens interested in the integrity of one of the Federal government's most powerful agencies should be appalled. As we've long since suspected, we're deep into banana republic territory now, where the powerful and connected can pretty much do as they please, and hapless citizens who dare get in their path have little hope of justice.

Trump can claim to be draining the swamp, but as long as the Strzoks, Lerners, Awans, etc continue to walk, the message to the deep state is clear: Continue doing what you are doing. Trump is just a temporary bump in the road that will be gone some day. In the mean time, it's business as usual.

Fish Out of Water said...

Wonder now if Strok's amazing/enraging arrogance and smarminess was a final nod to his lover, Ms. Page, who it is now reported will not testify. Suppose he now ought to consult with Lois Learner on a second career.

Also, I'm wondering where the Stzrok and the terminator in Terminator II were separated at birth?

Jack Colby said...

Oversight needs to bare its' teeth. It needs to actually bite someone once in a while. "Conduct detrimental" is punishable for a reason. Strzok clearly doesn't fear punishment. You don't get to his position by being an idiot; he knows he has protection. It ain't about truth for him & his supporters. It's about winning, pure and simple. "Pay no attention to the 50,000 text messages." 50,000! Who has time for their job if they're sending 50,000 text messages? Unless those text messages ARE his job. And if THAT's true, then the proof is in the texting: his bias didn't just get in the way of a fair investigation, it CAUSED the investigation. "Dirty cops" like him need to pay a price and maybe others won't be so quick to compromise their own integrity, as well as that of their organization, for something as transitory as political, financial or sexual gain.

Colby Muenster said...

I did not watch, but have seen and heard clips. There were some awesome moments from Gowdy and others, and I almost had to laugh at some of the Demtard's tactics. They are no doubt very confused because something called a "point of order" took on a whole new meaning when they were in charge, and now the rules are maybe starting to get enforced again (a little).

Strzok is a giant piece of condensed owl shit, but will no doubt escape this unscathed. I'll bet he doesn't even get fired. It is far past time for Prez Trump to do some 'splainin' to that more than useless, alleged AG, Jeff Sessions. Roll some heads, or your own will roll, Jeffy. It is painfully obvious O'Liar sunk some deep, deep roots into the FBI and Dept. of Justice. There is only one way to fix that; fire every last one of the deep staters.

Dan said...

Back in the late '60s the left told us we couldn't trust the FBI or other parts of the government.
Now they've taken over the FBI, DOJ, and intelligence agencies, and much of Congress, they're proving that to be true.
The people distrusting their government is destructive.

Linda McWilliams said...

I think most of the agency has gone rogue, at least that's what I hear from a friend in the intelligence field. The witness was arrogant because he knows he's 'covered' by higher ups and most likely by people behind the scenes. If Sessions were doing nothing Trump would find a replacement for him, as he has for other appointees. I think he is quietly working with the president. Draining the swamp is not a simple process, would basically empty out most of our agencies, which have been infiltrated for decades now, and it can't be done in a straightforward manner, especially with the media ready to distort arrests as 'gestapo tactics'. Public support needs to be built for it first before there is a sweeping change. Most of the power and money in the world is supporting and protecting it. George Soros is only one of many. And these people will kill you if you get too close to your target swamp creature. Just one example - the Clintons:
see http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/BODIES.php and scroll down a bit to see Clinton Body Count article

Perhaps Sessions is actually laying ground work for bringing some of these people to justice through the child sexual abuse arrests he's been making. Plenty of them would be connected to that.

Then there was the "Trump Baby" balloon flown in London during his visit.
Measuring all of 20 feet tall and costing at least £16,000, at least 100 people turned out to see it.
Although approved by London's Muslim mayor (stating freedom of speech, like he really believes in that), even left-wing looney Piers Morgan questioned whether the mayor would have allowed such an insulting portrayal of Ă˜bama.

Velveeta Processed Cheese Food said...

@Fritz. I agree. Shallow or inappropriate affect is one of the hallmarks of psychopathy.

John the Econ said...

Was that "Trump baby" balloon embarrassing or what? I'm not just talking about the "resistance" beclownment aspect of it, but just the size: In all of the renderings I saw, that thing was supposed to dwarf Parliament. In reality, it would have had its ass kicked by Hello Kitty in the Macy's parade.

But isn't that typical of Progressivism? The reality never seems to fare well against the promises.

Note to British Progressives: Look at what your former empire has become. Snarky baloons?
Please forgive us if we do not wish our nation to suffer the same fate you seem to be chasing.

Who cares what some Londoners, who apparently don't need to work, think about the American president? What would they think if Americans staged a protest in DC against their PM? They don't even know what they're protesting.

Fish Out of Water said...

@Judi King:Given the same numerous and slickly designed signs shown on the news as well as that infantile balloon, that 'protest ' was bought and paid for. By who? I wish that was investigated.
