You’ve been watching too much homowood. Wise up, homowood is not reality.

I don’t know what a homowood is.

Can you bring me up to date on what Sleepy has accomplished, please?

1. Bailed on President Trump his first day and let Mueller do whatever he wants.
2.Rest
3.Matlock.
4.Rest

I’d prefer things happened faster too, but the timing is perfect on this one. Let him get *this* close to that gleaming, candy-like, solid gold, platinum plated, diamond encrusted federal pension and then can his ass. Too bad they won’t cane his ass for good measure.

If it’s up to Mr Magoo’s DOJ to fire McCabe (1 year after everybody know the weasel’s misdeeds and only after “recommendation” of a whole crowd of people!), so why the bunch of McCabe’s co-conspirators like Strzok, Ohr, Priestap and many less known names are still on the FBI’ payroll?

I'm not here to defend Sessions, "Mr. Magoo's" attitude, but firing this prick McCabe the day before he's set to retire and receive a pension, but I assume now will not garner that pension, is dastardly cunning at the worst and sweet poetic timing at it's best!

I can only assume the rest of the treasonous, losers time is coming!

Sessions has implemented the President’s immigration policies. I don’t know about you, but immigration is right on the top of my list of reasons I voted for Trump.

>snip>

Trump made immigration a centerpiece of his campaign, and he has relied on his Attorney General to keep that promise. To encourage local jurisdictions to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, Sessions has implemented new conditions for federal law enforcement grants. Cities that do not report the arrest of an illegal immigrant to federal immigration officials will be denied these funds. This is a wise use of the carrot that is federal funding because, as Sessions has put it, “so-called ‘sanctuary’ cities make all of us less safe because they intentionally undermine our laws and protect illegal aliens who have committed crimes.” Moreover, at the request of the Department of Homeland Security, the DoJ is investigating the possibility of bringing criminal charges against political leaders of “sanctuary cities,” who deliberately defy federal law.

Sessions’s emphasis on immigration enforcement is also clear from his decisions to send more than 100 immigration judges across the country to help process immigration cases, and to create the position of Border Security Coordinator in U.S. Attorney’s Offices around the country. Finally, the DoJ has mounted a strong legal defense of the president’s Executive Order restricting the entry of foreign nationals from countries that “present heightened threats” to America. This constellation of policies shows that the Attorney General is dedicated to keeping our borders secure and our immigration laws respected.

Sessions has also done important work to fight violent crime. In response to the alarming increase in violence committed against law enforcement officers in 2016, he announced $98 million in funding awards to 179 agencies around America. This money will fund the hiring of over 800 full-time officers. In addition to helping the thin blue line, the DoJ is aggressively pursuing MS-13 — the gang whose motto declares their intent to “kill, rape and control.” Mr. Sessions has made the gang a top priority for the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Forces, and last November the DoJ partnered with the Department of Homeland Security to arrest more than 200 MS-13 members. In fact, the Department convicted more than 1,200 members of various gangs last year.

Sessions couldn’t have timed the firing of this corrupt scheister . . . .

Yeah he could have waited until one second before midnight tonight.
Made McCabe sweat it out another whole day.

Let me know when that happens. I’ll be watching Matlock and eating jello with Sleepy.

Oooo that’s gotta sting. Anyone taking bets on when McCabe goes off the deep end?

“I thought if you lied to agents on an investigation you are charged too?”

Interesting note. Regarding the general public, yes you get charged for lying. Regarding the G with its ridicules personnel rules, almost always one is charged before being removed. Generally the removal comes after the criminal case is over. The timing of McCabe’s pension is the key here, once they let him retire, he probably keeps his pension. BTW, his pension in this case is not what it used to be. He will keep his 403B as that is his money and he will always get his SSec benefits when eligible. He is losing his defined pension which is based on years of service. I don’t know if he keeps the portion he paid into that.

My guess here is the Hatch Act violation is what tipped the scale against him. When interviewed by the IG, I suspect he danced around answering the question about the press, probably maybe even couched it as an attempt to influence the investigation while not mentioning the FISA application. Taken together with the Hatch Act, it smelled to high heaven.

Lastly, they kept him dangling till the last day IMO because there are other items afoot and he is the hinge to them. His drawing a line in the sand with his press release seems to indicate he does not intend to play ball. Perhaps he will get middled because one of the underlings may flip on him and at that point he will have to decide whether to do a year at the farm or 10 in Danbury.

Sounds like to me you are a little sleepy yourself. True, Sessions could be a little bit more vocal about what he’s doing, but he’s implementing Trump’s immigration plans, and I’m willing to take a wait and see.

Back to your nap.

“This is nice but I want indictments.”

I wonder if it’s too late to indict Lois Lerner. Maybe she’d be entitled to keep her pension because she’s retired, but if Statute Of Limitations isn’t up I think she could be convicted and rot in jail.

According to Sara Carter in Hannity, there is a whole lot more, and worse, to come.

Only thing that would make sense is if you let them think they can keep their job they have to cooperate with the IG. If a prosecutor falls to them they can plead the fifth.

Get them on record via the IG. Them prosecute after the report is finished. Or get them to flip to get a bigger fish.

She pleaded with a Federal judge to keep her Congressional testimony under seal as she feared for her life if it got out. Just as there are internet memes of George H. W. ("wouldn't be...prudent") Bush, saying, "If the American people ever found out what we've done, they'd chase us down the street and lynch us."

Time to celebrate!

McCabe’s firing means one thing.

Comey and McCabe and the whole insidious net of Obama’s weaponized DOJ and FBI racketeers is about to be rolled up.
RICO WILL be used.

Americans across the country will be toasting both Saint Patrick and President Trump today.

And when will the real shite hit the fan?

When the DOJ’s Inspector General’s report is released. Why do you say?

Because shortly thereafter, a special prosecutor will now be appointed to excavate and evacuate these Alinsky liberal fascist Obama weaponized management people from the entire government of the United States.

The SWAMP is about to be drained into the desert of their failed liberal fascist ideology.And that ideology is about to be placed resoundingly into the crapper of history.

Good job Jeff Sessions and good job President Trump.

Now finish them off, especially weaponized against America, former CIA director , liberal fascist Brennan, who should now be behind bars.
