President Donald Trump accepted the recommendation from Assistant Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to remove James Comey from his position as FBI Director. Many Democrats like Senator Chuck Schumer are asking “Why now?”
Democrats continue to reference Comey as the man leading the investigation concerning the Russians. Maybe they forgot that the FBI is an entire agency and can continue investigations without James Comey. A year after the fact, no one has any evidence of a direct connection between Donald Trump and the Russian government.
On July 5th, in a statement Comey said there was evidence of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton handling classified information but he could not prove her intent. Democrat Senators and the media say Comey’s firing resemble the famous “Saturday night massacre” by President Richard Nixon. This is where President Nixon fired Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox. In the show today BKP explained how there is nothing about Watergate that resembles Donald Trump firing James Comey.
We also look at the coincidence that President Bill Clinton fired FBI Director, William Sessions, on July 19th and Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster’s body was found in Fort Marcy park on July 20th.
The bottom line is President Donald Trump fired Comey because he was no longer effective and able to run the agency. “The Director of the FBI must be someone who follows faithfully the rules and principles of the Department of Justice and who sets the right example for our law enforcement officials and others in the Department. Therefore I must recommend that you remove Director James B. Comey, Jr. and identify an experienced and qualified individual to lead the great men and women of the FBI.” – Attorney General Jeff Session
ABC’s Martha Raddatz, Fox’s Chris Wallace, NBC’s Chuck Todd, and CBS’s John Dickerson all clearly exposed their liberal agenda this weekend concerning Russia and the possible ties to the Trump campaign. While some briefly discussed the topic of surveillance and unmasking of Donald Trump and members of his campaign team they continued to circle back to alleged Russian ties to the Trump campaign. Not one mention of the bombshell revelation concerning surveillance by Fox New’s Adam Housely. Housely reports sources with evidence of high up official(s) in the intelligence community that Trump and his campaign team were under surveillance even before he was became a nominee. It seems to be all four missed the revelations in the Evelyn Farkas interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski. Farkas was a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence for the Obama Administration. Farkas admits to Brzezinski that there was surveillance. Farkas’ admission, “That the Tump folks, if they found out how we knew about… the Trump staff’s dealing with Russia, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods.” It seems to be that the media is more interested in a story with no evidence concerning Russia, opposed to stories that could prove the accusations. With plenty of inculpatory evidence they completely overlook “the Clinton cash” or John and Tony Podesta.
Will (R) Karen Handel embrace or distance herself from President Donald Trump? Will Trump voters come out and vote for Karen Handel? How hard will Dan Moody, Judson Hill, and Bob Gray work to convince their voters to vote for Karen Handel? If Fulton County is the Republican stronghold of the district then why did Ossoff get 41,269 votes? Ossoff received almost as many votes in Fulton County as Gray, Handel and Moody combined. Donald Trump is President of the United States because he did not used the “Republican Playbook.” By using the playbook the Republicans almost lost the 6th district. When will Republicans learn to throw the playbook out the window – Trump style?
A runoff seems to be certain in the GA 6th Congressionaldistrict special election to replace HHS Secretary Tom Price, taking place today. Democrat Jon Ossoff looks to be guaranteed one of the runoff spots; the second spot will be left open to Republican Dan Moody, Karen Handel, or Bob Gray. If you are tired of all of the commercials and think they will end tonight… Think again. There will be just as many commercials but now it will be narrowed down to just two candidates. So get ready ready for another two months of political campaign ads, because election day is June 20th.
If Ossoff wins at least 40 % of the vote tonight there is a good chance that he will be able to win the election in June to become the new Congressman of the GA 6th. A runoff election is generally won by the opponent that can get their voters back to the polls. Just like most sports; the team that has the momentum wins. It is going to be questionable as to whether the Republicans can coalesce and change the momentum of the game.
If Democrats just take the voter role from tonight, with the amount of money they have coming in nation wide; they will be able to do anything necessary to get the voters back to the polls on June 20th. If the top Republican is only in the area of 20% of the vote tonight they have the challenge of getting that 20% back to the polls in addition to the margin needed to win from the Republicans they ran against. If Karen Handel is the front runner can you really see Bob Gray, Judson Hill, Dan Moody and the rest of the Republicans out begging their voters to return to the polls. BKP sees them half heartedly endorsing her, but not aggressively working for her campaign.
Ossoff has many media outlets to thank for their media coverage, not to mention this morning’s MSNBC’s 15 minute Ossoff infomercial. Morning Joe and Mika Brzezinski spent about 15 minutes talking about President Donald Trump’s poor polling numbers. BKP strongly believes the poor polling report was to lead the voters of the 6th district to believe the country is turning on President Donald Trump. They continued by telling their audience that in less than 100 days of his presidency the American people have tuned him out. That gave Mika a perfect segway into, “Up next: A special election that could spell trouble for the GOP.”
MSNBC’s Political Correspondent, Casey Hunt, proceeded with what we consider a Jon Ossoff infomercial. Hunt dedicated only about 15 seconds of her report to Republicans Bob Gray and Karen Handel. Hunt was even able to find, in her non-biased reporting, a Republican in the district that voted for Jon Ossoff. Republicans go into every election already behind one strike knowing the media is against them.
In today’s segment BKP reminds people of the late Andrew Breitbart’s comments concerning Congressman John Lewis – “The orchestrated lie.” President Donald Trump had the nerve to call John Lewis a liar. Republicans never want to offend anybody, want to play the middle of the road, and know how to lose an election. BKP is concerned that Republicans attacking Ossoff’s youth and fondness for Star Wars, may have been non-beneficial. Did Republicans miss how Star Wars is to all age groups? Maybe Republicans don’t remember a college keg party? REALLY… Democrats are organized. If they win the 6th district, the next stop is winning The House, and the grand finale will be redistricting in 2021. A must watch segment. Republicans beware… This may be offensive… Because it’s the truth!
