Longtime Broadcaster Ed Schultz Dies at 64

ED SCHULTZ PASSES AWAY …

Today it comes as a surprise that longtime broadcaster Ed Schultz has died at the age if 64. Media reports state that he dies of “natural causes” as Schultz passed quietly early morning on July 5 at his home in Washington, D.C. I can’t say I agreed with much Ed Schultz had to say, although I can agree that passing away at the age of 64 is far too young. After his show was canceled at MSNBC Schultz joined TT America to produce “The News with Ed Schultz.” As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, Schultz and his new show were criticized by many of his fellow progressives for taking a new positive tone towards both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Republican President Donald Trump. None more evident where I never agreed more with Ed Schultz as he ripped Hillary Clinton a new one for not having the common decency to give her concession speech, but instead prolonging the BS by sending out her campaign chair Podesta instead. Schultz stated, this is the same campaign that was questing Trump to how he would handle the outcome of the election.”

Schultz rips Hillary Clinton for not speaking on election night

Ed Schultz, the longtime broadcaster who churned up the Fargo-Moorhead area airwaves before moving into the national spotlight as a progressive firebrand, died of natural causes Thursday, July 5, at his home in Washington, D.C.

Schultz, the host of “The News With Ed Schultz” on RT America, was 64.

“We at RT America are sad to announce the passing of Edward Andrew Schultz. Ed Schultz passed quietly early morning on July 5 at his home in Washington, D.C. This announcement comes as a shock to all of us here at RT America,” the network said in a statement.

Schultz never shied away from controversy. If anything, he sought it out.

He was a man of contrasts. A political chameleon with a driving ambition. [...]

In 2004, Schultz took his radio show nationwide. Then in 2009, he moved to national television, becoming a prime-time progressive voice on MSNBC through 2015, when his show was dropped.

He started his job at RT America, formerly called Russia Today, in early 2016, hosting the half-hour show “The News With Ed Schultz.”

Schultz, who was critical of Russian President Vladimir Putin while at MSNBC, said when he took the RT job that he didn’t anticipate any problems. “Nobody is going to tell Ed Schultz what to say,” he told The Forum.

House Republicans Unveil Resolution Officially Calling For Second Special Counsel to Investigate the Investigators, (DOJ & FBI) VIDEO

COULD THERE BE A SECOND SPECIAL COUNSEL TO INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS?

House Republicans unveiled Tuesday a 12 page resolution calling for a second special counsel to investigate misconduct and possible crimes at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation. House Republicans and members of the Freedom Caucus have called for a special counsel as they believe that the FBI and DOJ are incapable of investigating themselves. I would agree. During the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s server/emails and the so-called Trump-Russian collusion investigations, we have been witness to bias, partisanship and a double standard from high ranking members of the DOJ & FBI, the likes we have never seen.

House Republicans Resolution

The resolution is backed by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus as well as two of the group’s co-founders — Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.

Fox News has learned the 12-page resolution will ask a second special counsel to probe matters related to three topics:The ending of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s personal email server, the progress of the Trump-Russia investigation from its origins through the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, and abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the warrant application process.

The resolution is expected to say that a second special counsel would have greater autonomy to investigate those issues than the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General. Last week, Inspector General Michael Horowitz told lawmakers that he had completed his draft report on the Clinton investigation and submitted it to the DOJ and the FBI.

RESOLUTION
Expressing  the  sense  of  Congress  that  the  Attorney  General
of  the  United  States  should  appoint  a  Special  Counsel
to  investigate  misconduct  at  the  Department  of  Justice
and  Federal  Bureau  of  Investigation,  including  an  inves-
tigation   of   abuse   of   the   FISA   warrant   process,   how
and  why  the  Hillary  Clinton  probe  ended,  and  how  and
why the Donald Trump-Russia probe began.

Whereas  there  is  an  urgent  need  for  the  appointment  of  a
second  Special  Counsel  in  light  of  evidence  that  raises
critical  concerns  about  decisions,  activities,  and  inherent
bias  displayed  at  the  highest  levels  of  the  Department  of
Justice   (DOJ)   and   Federal   Bureau   of   Investigation
(FBI)  regarding  FISA  abuse,  how  and  why  the  Hillary
Clinton  email  probe  ended,  and  how  and  why  the  Donald
Trump-Russia probe began;

Whereas  the  concerns  of  the  American  people  are  serious  and
the   issues   requiring   an   immediate,   unbiased,   inde-
pendent, and thorough investigation are broad;

Whereas  misconduct  during  the  2016  presidential  election  by
high-ranking  individuals  within  the  FBI  and  DOJ  may
have  led  to  the  premature  conclusion  of  the  FBI’s  2016
probe  into  then-presidential  candidate  and  former  Sec-
retary of State Hillary Clinton; [...]

Whereas  the  DOJ  and  FBI  cannot  be  expected  to  fully  inves-
tigate  themselves  regarding  this  matter:

IT’S OFFICIAL … Confirmed by NY Times, Deep State FBI Spied on Trump’s Camp Using Informant: Code Name: Crossfire Hurricane.

ITS OFFICIAL, THE DEEP STATE IS OUT OF CONTROL AND INDIVIDUALS NEED TO GO TO PRISON ..

We know have confirmation that the FBI spied on a political campaign and actually used an undercover informant to do so. The NY Times article is a must read. So riddle me this Batman, if the FBI had an informant in the Trump political campaign apparatus, how that was authorized one can only imagine, and this mole was supposed to be getting dirt and information on Trump-Russian collusion, then how in hell over one year later of a Mueller Special counsel and even longer FBI investigation has the Deep State come up with nothing to do with collusion? Seriously, they had and informant and still nothing! Maybe because there is nothing and this was a political hit job born out of the Obama administration to get Hillary elected and then destroy a duly elected President of the United States. Folks, this is 1000 times worse than Watergate.

VIA the New York Times, of all places, Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation.

Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark.

Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an F.B.I. interview to describe his meeting with the campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos.

The agents summarized their highly unusual interview and sent word to Washington on Aug. 2, 2016, two days after the investigation was opened. Their report helped provide the foundation for a case that, a year ago Thursday, became the special counsel investigation. But at the time, a small group of F.B.I. officials knew it by its code name: Crossfire Hurricane.

[...]

In the Clinton case, Mr. Comey has said he erred on the side of transparency. But in the face of questions from Congress about the Trump campaign, the F.B.I. declined to tip its hand. And when The New York Times tried to assess the state of the investigation in October 2016, law enforcement officials cautioned against drawing any conclusions, resulting in a story that significantly played down the case.

Mr. Comey has said it is unfair to compare the Clinton case, which was winding down in the summer of 2016, with the Russia case, which was in its earliest stages. He said he did not make political considerations about who would benefit from each decision.

But underpinning both cases was one political calculation: that Mrs. Clinton would win and Mr. Trump would lose. Agents feared being seen as withholding information or going too easy on her. And they worried that any overt actions against Mr. Trump’s campaign would only reinforce his claims that the election was being rigged against him.

[…]

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump’s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.

DNC Sues Russia, Trump Campaign & WikiLeaks For Conspiring to Disrupt the 2016 Election

THESE PEOPLE ARE INSANE AND JUST CAN’T ACCEPT THEY LOST TO DONALD J. TRUMP … TALK ABOUT YOUR SORE LOSERS!!!

By the way the Democrats and Hillary have acted since the 2016 elections, thank God Donald Trump won.

Hey DNC, Democrats and the LEFT, don’t ask for things they just might come true. For nearly a year Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been trying to find evidence of collusion between Russian and Donald Trump and has discovered butkis. Now, with Mueller floundering to find any crimes to pin on Trump, FBI former #2 Andrew McCabe in hot water after the DOJ’s Inspector General, FBI’s former #1 being looked at for leaking classified info, the deep state being exposed … we get this classic that the DNC is suing Russia, WikiLeaks and Trump campaign for interference in the 2016 election. UNREAL. They LEFT just cannot accept that they lost to Trump. The DNC is seeking recompense for what it says was millions of dollars in damages from Russia’s hacking of its internal emails, which were then published by WikiLeaks, with the encouragement of then-candidate Trump and his campaign. REALLY? This from the same people who never let the FBI examine their servers after the so-called hack. What were they afraid of, that is was an inside job?

Lawsuit here.

Hillary Clinton2

The Democratic Party on Friday sued President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Russian government and the Wikileaks group, claiming a broad illegal conspiracy to help Trump win the 2016 election.

The multimillion-dollar lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says that “In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort” to mount “a brazen attack on American Democracy,” which included Russian infiltration of the Democratic Party computer network.

The Trump campaign, according to the lawsuit, “gleefully welcomed Russia’s help.”

The suit says that “preexisting relationships with Russia and Russian oligarchs” with Trump and Trump associates “provided fertile ground for [the] Russia-Trump conspiracy.”

The common purpose of the scheme, according to the Democratic National Committee, was to “bolster Trump and denigrate the Democratic Party nominee,” Hillary Clinton, while boosting the candidacy of Trump, “whose policies would benefit the Kremlin.”

Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said the party’s suit “is not partisan, it’s patriotic.”

The DNC is playing a very dangerous game. They are in full on “resistance” mode all they time, which is growing really old. I have one thing to say to the DCN, you better be prepared for “discovery”. Maybe we will find out once and for all that they DNC was not hacked, but an inside job. The Democrats have nothing but to cause chaos. I cannot wait for this to backfire on them. You have been warned.

The Democrats and Hillary Clinton have been the biggest bunch of sore losers ever. Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate, hell she lost to an unknown Obama 8 years earlier. Now sour grapes Hillary who just cant let it go blames everyone else in the word but herself, Hillary Clinton on Election Night: ‘They Were Never Going to Let Me Be President’. Good grief folks, does it ever jut dawn on you by they way you and she is acting is the reason why you lost? The Dems better hope this case gets tossed on summary judgement, because the ultimate destruction of the Democrats will be when Julian Assange states he received the emails from Seth Rich.

The Trump campaign called it a “sham lawsuit” and said it smacks of desperation on the part of the DNC. Gee, ya think?

Socialist Bernie Sanders Blames Crooked Hillary Clinton For Hiding Russian Meddling InfoDuring 2016 Democrat Primaries

IT WOULD APPEAR THERE IS DISHARMONY ON THE LEFT …

It would appear there is some friction between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders following last week’s Mueller indictment of 13 Russians operating on line to meddle in the 2016 presidential election. The indictment showed these Russian trolls were also supporting Hillary’s Democrat rival, Bernie Sanders. Oops.  Sen. Bernie Sanders (Socialist – VT) said Wednesday that he did not know at the time that Russian trolls promoted his 2016 presidential campaign and wondered why Hillary Clinton’s team did not do more to tell voters about the extent of Russia’s election interference. Gee Bernie, crooked Hillary also did not tell you she was colluding with the DNC against you as well. Maybe this is why so many of your supporters were so disappointed when you actually lowered yourself and supported Hillary’s campaign.

From The Washington Free Beacon:

“If he was aware that Russians were trying to promote him and divide Democrats against Mrs. Clinton, why did he not communicate this to his supporters?” the listener asked Sanders.

“This was not supporting me any more than they were supporting groups like Black Lives Matter that are fighting for social justice,” Sanders said.

“I did not know that Russian bots were promoting my campaign,” Sanders added. “Russians bots were not promoting my campaign. What we found out is that in April and May, it appeared that there were lots of strange things happening, attacking Hillary Clinton.”

The interviewer asked Sanders why he and his campaign did not tell his supporters about Russian interference if they knew Moscow was meddling to sow divisions.

“I would say that the real question to be asked is what was the Clinton campaign—they had more information about this than we did, and at this point, we were working with them,” he responded.

“So did the Clinton campaign say, ‘Don’t talk about this?’” the interviewer asked.

“No, of course not, but who do you think would be raising that issue?” Sanders said.

“I could see a world in which Mrs. Clinton said, ‘It’s the Russians,’ and Sanders supporters say, ‘Oh, that’s baloney,’ but if Sanders says it, they say, ‘OK,’” his interviewer said.

“We knew what we knew when we knew it, and that’s about all that I can say,” Sanders said.
