If you are right leaning loon you might as well stop reading my blog. James Comey was former director of the FBI. His infamous firing led to current Muller’s investigation of Trump Russia connection.
First off, Mr. Comey insists that his book is not a “memoir”. I would remind him of his favorite bible phrase Proverbs 28:1
“The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.”
His book is a mixture of a memoir, as well as shout out. He wants to debunk Trump administration propaganda. He also exposes the folly of intelligence leaders, and gives us some fresh perspective and mindset of the top kehillah. Most of us knew the things he talks about. Meet the new boss same as the old boss.
In short; Trump is arrogant, wanna be mafia and thinks his shit doesn’t stink.
However, Mr. Comey has sat a bar for himself so high. Like rain inevitably falling from sky, he also lands on the ground. Another words, author doesn’t have a moral foot to stand on. Like his unprecedented move calling media to talk about Clinton email investigation. Yet saying noting about Russia & Trump connection!
His description of Clinton’s family pretty revealing. For example when Clinton’s gave Marc Rich presidential pardon.
Those who forgot: here from wikipedia.
“In 1983 Rich and partner Pincus Green were indicted on 65 criminal counts, including income tax evasion, wire fraud, racketeering, and trading with Iran during the oil embargo (at a time when Iranian revolutionaries were still holding American citizens hostage). The charges would have led to a sentence of more than 300 years in prison had Rich been convicted on all counts. The indictment was filed by then-U.S. Federal Prosecutor (and future mayor of New York City) Rudolph Giuliani. At the time it was the biggest tax evasion case in U.S. history.”
This scum bag robbed American people of their retirement money, brought US stocked market to it knees. He was even charged for his crminal activity. Yet Mr. Comey’s FBI team could not find any criminal connection to bring charges against corrupt President Clinton! Even when FBI was investigating Enron, and other top scandal they could not bring any charges against the CEO for scamming people out of their 401k!
I don’t know if Mr. Comey has read a book written by his fellow FBI Gary Aldrich. “Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House“. In 1996 it was #1 New York Times Bestseller. Virtually everyone in the agency knew the nasty level of corruption emanating from white house. Yet the agency did nothing about it. It was busy fabricating evidence again Sadaam to start a new Iraq war!
An amazing revelation comes about Marta Stewart arrest. FBI wanted to make sure that public trust in agency is not faded. FBI was worried that public would think the rich get away with everything (which they do). Although Mr. Comey doesn’t say that, it seems like Marta Stewart arrest was a dog and a pony show. How else do you explain that big companies like GE, Apple, and even Google don’t pay any income tax in US of A. Yet FBI does not closes these illegal lophole created by rich to become even more richer. Yet an average Joe would be jail for similar shenanigans.
I found it remarkable the he did not criticize his former leader John Ashcraft, a nut case religious lunatic who truly believed in Armageddon. Ashcraft pushed for torture,and even look the other way when POW were raped throughout Iraq, Agency was busy destroying evidence like Abu Ghraib scandal, as well military crimes in Afghan war.
He talks about his internal struggle, and how emotionally transparent he was to his wife. Also, how his wife told him not to torture people in Iraq, Afghan. Makes you wonder of his opinion of people rotting in Guantanamo Bay detention camp. Does really want to believe that little girls & boys were not raped in front of their parents to get information about terrorist. Or that FBI some how did not about it. Even when it comes to domestic plight — like DNC stealing election from Bernie Sanders, he has nothing to say.
Mr. Comey is a traditionalist conservative. Like most tradcon, he is blind of his employee duplicity. When he talks about Peter Strzok & Lisa Page. He remind us of Lisa Page rebellious nature, and outspoken personality. He loved that about her. I don’t know if author realizes or not but description he is giving of Lisa is a revelation that she was trying to impress her lover, and hoping that Peter would divorce his wife, and than both will live happily ever after.
Let’s not forget his reasoning why Hilary Clinton got away using personal e-mail sever is idiotic at best. Yet on a similar ground CIA director was prosecuted with similar incidents.
Incidentally, his revelation about Peter & Lisa affair gives us a clue of Trump current affair in White house as reported by Michael Wolff. It seems to me that Trump was having an affair with Nikki Haley. Possibly, Ivanka wanted to reduce her step-mother influence over her father.
Melania a Slovenian born immigrant came from an area with heavy Russian influence. Affair was meant to reduce Eastern European connection over Trump. However. Steve Bannon camp was able to move Nikki to UN far away from Trump’s crotch.
Anyone who kept an eye on news around 2000 would know the corruption level was pretty high from Clinton to Bush Jr. Mr Comey was part of an unpopular government. He did not protest when right of individuals were removed for opposing government war in middle-east. This encourages media to censor anything they deem unfit. This is why Chris Hedges was fired by NY Times. Hence, the today popular term “fake media”.
I do not agree with premiss of his book. He may have thought that he was enforcing Law & Order. Sadly, he was more like Inspector Javert chasing Jean Valjean for loaf of bread. Just like Les Miserable ending Mr. Comey’s career ended in disgrace. Either way James Comey is an interesting character. It is worth reading his book provided you’re borrowing it from library.
