Hillary’s campaign mislead Obama’s Judge to spy on a private citizen with forged evidence. The judge should be furious unless the judge is in on the scam.

The memo alleges the FBI concealed the Democratic ties of the false source the agency used to wrongly justify spying on Carter Page during the Trump presidential campaign. This is the stuff that goes on in sh*thole cultures. 

“I think it’s a disgrace what’s happening in our country,” Trump told reporters when asked about the memo, adding that “a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves.” Some should go to jail,

Trump continued: “The top Leadership and Investigators of the FBI and the Justice Department have politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats and against Republicans – something which would have been unthinkable just a short time ago.”

Devin Nunes, U.S. Representative for California’s 22nd congressional district since 2003, a Republican, said it laid bare “serious violations of the public trust, and the American people have a right to know when officials in crucial institutions are abusing their authority for political purposes.”.   WORSE THAN WATERGATE
Because Watergate, which was spying but not by the government. The FBI was spying on a political campaign and the FBI is government. Government spying is what the KGB did. Hostile governments around the world spy on their citizens but America is supposed to be different. Now we find some of the worst people inside our government. It’s unacceptable. All concerned should be disciplined and while there’s no penalty for spying there are penalties for lying by government officials.

Can the Gods be bribed?
A bribe is when an individual or a group of people gives a gift of money, or some other inducement, to an official so the official will act in their favor. We allegedly ban such transactions because they subvert justice but they can also encourage justice if a good actor bribes a bad actor so the bad actor does the right thing. Does that make it a “good” bribe?
Prayer itself isn’t a bribe but it can contain the promise of one in the future if the Gods are induced to grant a wish. Prayer is then the gateway, the entrance door to a bribe.

As revealed by Martin Luther in 1517, an indulgence was a payment to the Catholic Church that purchased an exemption from punishment (penance) for some types of sins. Church leaders justified the bribe by arguing that they had inherited an unlimited amount of good works from Jesus, and the credit for these good works could be sold to believers in the form of indulgences. In other words, indulgences functioned like “confession insurance” against eternal damnation because if you purchased an indulgence, then you wouldn’t go to hell if you died suddenly or forgot to confess something.
The corollary question is: Can the devil be bribed?

It’s still four hours until sunrise and the winter prediction of a groundhog in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania but it’s mighty cold outside so the sensible prediction is six more weeks of winter.

A little thought shows the groundhog prediction is based on sunshine. The forecast for Punxsutawney for Feb 2, 2018 is for clouds so the groundhog will not see a shadow, or if it does it will be a muted one. What’s the prediction is the groundhog only sees a half shadow?
C’mon…..It’s a joke. A groundhog is a woodchuck. .
Dress for the weather; enjoy the day, …. and the groundhog. It’s more fun that way.
