    To be correct, the dish was not named after the traitor.

    The Comey and Robert legacy: Still Rinos run deep.

  • JTC

    “It was the right decision. Comey is a hero.”

    So says Scott Adams, apparently out of concern that Comey doing his job, honoring his oath, and following the law, would mean he would “personally determine who would be the next president. And that would be somehow not credible…as if a candidate’s criminal and treasonous acts are no relevant information for the electorate making that choice.

    Credible? Not, incredible. But, taking a read of his odd choices as examples of credibility explains a lot…every one bizarre and/or just plain wrong.

    Dilbert can be pretty profound sometimes, if accidentally so. Maybe Scott should let him write the opinion pieces.

    • Delilah T.

      I read that thoroughly.

      He’s right. It’s not that we’re wrong. It’s that he digs deeper than the astonishment people feel at Comey’s decision.

      Adams is right: this election must NOT be won by default.

      • JTC

        Well shit, if criminal acts and treason must be squelched so as not to sway the electorate to a “default” decision, then we might as well have a murderer running for potus. Oh, wait…

        Actually of course, the only thing that boy digs there is a hole as he flits from the statement that Great Britain’s Brexit was proof that they love their “credible” gov, that fathers of unborn children let alone the children themselves have no credible say in their murder, that a gridlocked SCOTUS is the ideal, and finally that gov agency wonks have the power to perform his sworn duty or not in order to arbitrarily and unconstitutionally influence a potus election. Oh yeah, he thinks Commie China gov is credible too, that ‘splains a lot.

      • Calvin

        Well if Hillary is going to go down then shouldn’t it be before the convention so the democrats can pull another bait and switch. They may to do that anyway if Hillary’s numbers start to plummet (we can only hope).
        I just imagine a Hollywood movie that is written and produced by liberals. A crusading reporter or police officer has the goods on a mayoral candidate. They are heroes because they go after the criminal and not wait for the election to be over to make their move. Besides, if someone did make a move on President-Elect Hillary, how much would that disturb things?

      • WHAT, by deceit is better?

        Anyway, isn’t that EXACTLY how The One has won virtually all of his elections?

      • azscram

        Adams comments are asinine. An indictment would surely knock Hillary out of the race, but that would just force the Democrats to choose another candidate. It wouldn’t decide the election, only for the Dems to choose someone who is less obviously a criminal. Heck, since the elections are rigged, Bernie might even be able to win. Also, while credibility is important (his contention that those governments are credible aside), allowing Hillary to skate demonstrates clearly that we are not all equal under the law, and that the government is therefore not credible. If Hillary gets off, then grant amnesty to Snowden and let him come home.

    • NotYetInACamp

      One must remember that Scott Adams already endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. It was to live.

      http://blog.dilbert.com/post/145456082991/my-endorsement-for-president-of-the-united-states
      From the blog:
      ” So I’ve decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for President, for my personal safety. Trump supporters don’t have any bad feelings about patriotic Americans such as myself, so I’ll be safe from that crowd. But Clinton supporters have convinced me – and here I am being 100% serious – that my safety is at risk if I am seen as supportive of Trump. So I’m taking the safe way out and endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. “

      • “One must remember that Scott Adams already endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. It was to live.”

        TA-DAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Luciaus Severus Pertinax

      Charles Krauthammer said that he thinks Comey “did not want to be the fulcrum of History”
      Translation- “No Ballz”. Individuals WITH Ballz don’t have a problem with being a “fulcrum of History”; they welcome, even relish it.

      For my own part, I would welcome the chance to publicly sodomize that vicious harridan with an axe handle. I would burn the axe handle afterwards; standing well up wind when I did so.

      • “I would burn the axe handle afterwards”

        How about during? Good lord, things are heating up.

        Sounds like the false flag operations are ramping up with the Dallas shooting.

        • interventor

          Most likely, useful idiots stired the pot for free.

  • Two bright spots in this mess:
    1) It makes Ma Barker less electable.
    2) It prevents the Dems from replacing her with someone who is more electable.
    The Dems are gonna have to dance with the devil what brung ’em.

    • Luciaus Severus Pertinax

      I believe Col.Allen West made this same point.

  • eon

    There never seems to be a shortage of people willing to destroy their own careers and reputations on behalf of the progressive movement, and Comey is just the latest example.

    Then again he may have decided that being a live pariah is better than being a dead hero. Along with his family and/or any FBI agents who might have been called upon to testify.

    He may also have weighed the probabilities and concluded that the U. S. government would not benefit from a replay of the alleged “Night of the Sicilian Vespers”, which would be a high-weighted probability considering the actors involved;

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castellammarese_War

    The takeaway is that when the left is backed into a corner, especially the leaders, violence is generally their first resort rather than their last.

    They learned in their adolescence that it works, and they’re not in the mood to change.

    Besides, to them, it’s fun Right up there with a couple of plump, flaky lines on a mirror, and way better than a half-million dollar Lambo with a blond Swedish nympho riding shotgun.

    Yes, seriously fucked-up priorities there.

    • Note: He spent 90% of that briefing explaining the charges, then he covered his ass. He made it perfectly clear to those with ears to hear, “bitch is as guilty as they can get, but I want to wake up in the morning”.

    • Subotai Bahadur

      He may have considered that as the only, or at least the primary, threat vector. However, in a world where there is no rule of law and “cold anger” is the rule of the day, there are multiple threat vectors that all of the Nomenklatura are overlooking.

    Well Dallas just exploded. The WWW just got pushed to page 6. Convenient totally, Dude!!! Next push for gun control coming up. Dollars to donuts its going to be blamed on right wing extremists. Prayers to the Dallas PD and DART PD families.

    • Kafiroon

      When haven’t we, the NRA, Republicans, White Men, Amish, Jews and finally, GUNS!! been blamed almost before the bodies hit the ground?
      How long was it after Orlando that the only mention concerning that shooting was that a gun did it.

    • CB

      Am setting here watching the news right now. Earlier I’d seen a brief video and I saw 3 dead cops. They are not replaying that part.

      The shooter was reportedly wearing a bullet proof vest and camo pants.

      There was a video showing them arresting a man in a bullet proof vest and camo pants. He apparently was not the shooter. He’d apparently thought it would be a great idea to show up at the protest dressed that way.

      Then they cut to a female protester. She was outraged that he was arrested. She said just because the shooter wore those clothes it did not give them the right to arrest him.

      The old folks I grew up with would describe someone like her as not having enough sense to pour piss out of a boot with the instructions written on the heel.

      • GWB

        So, part of the next push will be to ban camo pants, since they obviously engender (am I allowed to use that word anymore?) anti-government feelings. And, body armor, of course.

    • Pamela

      Anyone think that some of these are committing suicide by cop for the cause…

      • JTC

        Martyrs? For a promise of 72 shawties and unlimited blunt, maybe even zero shedding a tear for what could have been his son? Hell yes.

    • Every single time “right wing extremists” have been blamed, eventually the truth comes out.

  • B Woodman

    Not that I’m advocating it, mind you, but at one time I thought I read a paper about “Assassination as Government Policy”, I think it was about foreign policy. Nothing says it can’t be used as domestic policy. But then again, I could be mis-remembering the whole thing in my dotage.

  • B Woodman

    That boy is going to be handed eggs Benedict every time he steps out his front door. I hope he quickly learns to like them. His name is become a hiss and a byword. “To Comey”, or, “a Comey”. Just like Quisling or Arnold.

    How soon before he commits suicide, do’ya’think?

    • Pamela

      You mean with the same gun that Foster used…

      • Brasspounder

        If Vince Foster had had a gun he’d be alive today.

        • Pamela

          And there wouldn’t be a pyschobitchfromhell needing to get elected to pardon herself and her friends.

  • JohninMd.(Help!?!!)

    As to the Scot Adams article referee to above, it was cogently written, but failed to mention the deal-breaker in this election — VOTER FRAUD. We saw a lot of dead get up and let last go round. THAT was a ‘trial run’. THIS YEAR its goiig to be…..epic.

  • B Woodman

  • Doo-Dah, Doo-Dah

    B Woodman:

    “Suicide”? How about “Arkancide”?

    (That’s an Arkansas historical reference, in regard to some of the Clintons’ associates who wound up “committing suicide” with their hands bound behind their backs and two shots into the left temple.)

    It’s amazing what … “interesting”… determinations-of-fact have been invented by officials (great and small) who are tied to the Clintons.

    I’d suggest that Comey needs to start wearing body armor; and probably should hire a food-taster as well. [[ “And don’t EVER go to Ft. Marcy Park!!” ]]

    • B Woodman

      D-D, D-D,
      Hadn’t thought of “Arkancide”, but it fits. Too well.
      Now if we could only convince Hellery to . . . . ummmmm. . . be an active “participant”. Would I shed a tear over her death? Not me. I’d be singing “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead”.

  • billf

    If you consider that Comey’s job is to decide on prosecuting an individual’s criminal activity,for money,he did exactly what his job description entails.

    • Arkay

      It is NOT the FBI Director’s job to “decide on prosecuting.” The FBI Director passes a completed investigation to DoJ, which decides to prosecute or not. FBI occasionally makes a recommendation to DoJ, but is not the deciding authority.

      • Arkay

        Further, his actions told me he’d forgotten that he was the head of an investigating agency. Instead, he acted as though he was the AUSA in DoJ that would decide to prosecute or not. And DoJ was more than happy to let him be the sacrificial beast.

  • billf

    Also, Obama said today in Poland,that all Americans should be upset at recent police shootings of black men.
    How come he never talks about shootings ‘by’ black men in his adopted home town of Chicago.

  • TJ

    Pontius Pilate only washed his hands of one innocent Life.

    James Comey, and John Roberts before him, have washed their hands of 300 millions.

  • So many comments spot on, but think of this: Comey likes to continue breathing. He likes the idea of his family continuing to do the same. The Clinton visit in Phoenix? Sure, I’ll bet they actually did speak of grandchildren. Continuing to breathe. All the stuff we KNOW, and yet it continues. “The Force” is a real thing, and the Clintons are the Sith. Where are our Jedi, or where will they be found comes the time? This hurts my heart.

    • MasterDiver

      Classic “Plata ou Plomba” situation. I wonder if he received photos of his family at home/school/public areas with cross-hairs superimposed on their faces?

      Zar Belk!

  • Bren

    Couple of things I think have been missed here, both re: DFW and Comey.

    Comey first. The fix was in from the beginning. Lynch meeting with Bill pretty much assures that. Comey had to know that. Add to that that his job– the job of the FBI– is to investigate and turn results over to DoJ, NOT to decide whether to prosecute. Keep also in mind that his conference was pretty much unprecedented. Normally, you don’t see that sort of thing in public until the AG decides to send it to the Grand Jury.

    What Comey did was take a thing that was dead bang about to be buried, and lay it all out in glorious color for the public as a whole and then admit that there wasn’t any way she was going to be prosecuted, so he didn’t think he could find a reasonable prosecutor to pursue it. Maybe he saw it as his one shot to get the information out to the world at large.

    It may be that he really is a straight shooter who threw himself on his sword to get the information out, rather than to protect the queen of teflon.

    Next, DFW. Full disclosure, I haven’t watched the video. Nor will I. I don’t watch real people die just for practice. I have, however, been in contact with people who did watch it. People who sort of kill other people for a living, albeit on much sandier battlefields, if you get my drift. The guys who did the shooting weren’t your average hood rats. They handled themselves like trained soldiers. That’s a thing to think about.

    • clayusmcret

      I agree with your comments ref Comey. Didn’t see them before posting my own.

  • I’m with Bren on the Comey situation. Whether he did what he did on purpose to skewer Hillary, or he’s even more incopetent than even his critics think, he gave a gift to Republicans. My latest column at WND.com spells out my thinking a little more fully. http://www.wnd.com/2016/07/comeys-gift-to-republicans/

  • clayusmcret

    I was not at all happy with the results, but……thinking on it and watching the hearing yesterday has given me pause. By doing it the way he did Comey was able to be covered live on multiple networks for 4 1/2 half hours straight laying out all the details of her lies; without one day of delay. Then, in full public view he gladly received notice that Congress WOULD give him the referral for a perjury investigation. And, he has four more of these hearings to go. Maybe he wasn’t so dumb after all. If he had passed it to the DOJ it would have been brushed under the rug for the election. This way, it lives on in broad daylight. Something to think about. Also, his response about the Clinton Foundation (whether it was under investigation) left no doubt but that it was. Just something to think about.

  • Bill G

    Several commentators have said that Comey sank Cankles by laying out everything, even if he said he did nor recommend prosecution.
    This does give Trump a yuge ad campaign, even if the Clinton Foundation investigation doesn’t result in a similar list of crimes with a similar recommendation.
    And I don’t buy the ‘He didn’t want to decide the election’ line at all. Goofy Uncle Joe is still out there, very popular on the left, and he’d get a large sympathy vote from useful idiots who believe that Cankles was victimized by the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

    DFW update: http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/528591/Dallas-shootings-claim-responsibility-for-attack-that-killed-5-cops

    A group named “Black Power Political Organization – BPPO” posted its Facebook page this morning claiming there would be more attacks in the coming days. The post read: “#?BlackPower?! ?#?BlackKnights?! Sniper Assassins Take Down Five Police Officers! And More Will Be Assassinated In The Coming Days! Do You Like The Work Of Our Assassins? Get Your Own Sniper Rifle And Join Our Thousands Of Sniper Assassins Worldwide In The Fight Against Oppression!”

    Lock and load, pardners! If our government can’t protect its citizens, it’s up to the citizens to protect themselves. Meanwhile, Jug-ears is finding a way to weave another call for more gun control into his “statement of sympathy” for the slain officers!

    Zar Belk!

    • azscram

      Ironically, the Dallas demonstration was a direct response, in part, to the shooting in Minneapolis, where the government demonstrated that no only do they fail to protect, they inflict harm. And the liberals want cops to be the only ones armed? Yikes. Unfortunately, these idiots shot Dallas cops instead of going up to where the problem was.

  • So does Comey want to be a fulcrum of history or not!?

  • JIMV

    Comey laid out a solid legal case over 14 minutes and in a bit more than a minute concluded with ‘never mind’. His ‘reasonable prosecutor’ is one who remembers the Ken Starr lesson, to charge a Clinton is to destroy your reputation and career while losing the case as Clinton’s political party and enablers will not let a Clinton be convicted regardless of guilt or evidence. The fix was in!

  • Daniel in Brookline

    I have a real problem thinking of Comey, not just as a traitor, but as THE American traitor.

    For one thing, as others have pointed out, we’re still figuring out what all this means. And for another, naming Comey that way let’s Hillary & Co. off the hook.

    Comey and Hillary. One of them reviewed a lot of information and reached a difficult decision about whether or not to recommend something. The other one left Americans to die in Benghazi, and left American top-secret intel where foreign governments could read it.

    Call him a traitor if you must, but he is NOT worse than she is. She has blood on her hands.

    • JTC

      He that aids, abets, and enables a traitor, is a traitor.

      As I’ve said ad nauseum, his job was to investigate and report; if justice is blind, extraneous impact on elections or anything else is irrelevant, consideration of it is outside his purview and is no doubt coerced favoritism and blatant disregard for the rule of law.

      How is this different from a local LE investigator finding that Joe Blow did indeed commit serious crimes and inflict egregious harm in that road rage incident, but he didn’t really mean for it to get out of hand and hurt anybody, and hey, he’s got a wife and kids to feed so the recommendation is to not prosecute…no harm no foul, well, except to the victim of his rage. Dude’s intent and failure to keep his temper, and his responsibilities at home are irrelevant to the crimes and harm he committed you say? Exactly.

      What Comey could have done is exactly what he did do in the first majority of his presentment, and then STFU, leaving those whose job it actually is to take that evidence and decide whether and/or how to proceed with indictment and prosecution. Of course that would put somebody else on the hotseat, namely Lowretta, which is why she intentionally had that little tarmac chat with Bubba, requiring her to recuse herself and kick the can over to Comey who absolutely had been put on notice. Pretty “Slick” plan really, with the deceitful signature of Clinton all over it.

      Yeah, Comey was kicked under the bus. If he was a man he’d eat his gun. But he won’t; he left his manhood, self-respect, integrity, and morality in that hearing room. Traitor? Yes…to his country, his family, himself, and God.

  • Pamela

    Any way you look at it folks, there are more fishing expeditions coming up.
    Cast enough hooks and nets, something is bound to hook her solid then tie her and company up with a pretty orange bows.

    • NotYetInACamp

      If true, that is treason.

    • NotYetInACamp

      If untrue. A planted story.

      I wonder which it is? True or untrue? Too quick of a reaction to releases of information often causes results undesired.
