Trump labels James Comey as a "nut job"
Comey's record of senseless scandals and screwups:

https://news.grabien.com/story-10-major-fbi-scandals-comeys-watch

1. After Dylann Roof killed nine South Carolina parishioners in cold
blood, James Comey admitted that an error in their background check
system allowed Roof to legally buy his gun. "We are all sick this
happened," Comey said of the massive screw-up.

2. Shortly after the NSA scandal exploded in 2013, the FBI was exposed
conducting its own data mining on innocent Americans; the agency,
Bloomberg reported, retains that material for decades (even if no
wrongdoing is found). This is particularly ironic since Comey largely
launched his political career by aligning himself with Sen. Schumer
during the Bush Administration, making himself known as an opponent of a
controversial surveillance program.

3. From 2013-2014, the FBI authorized informants to break the law more
than 11,000 times, a steep increase from the years prior; these
allowances, which the FBI calls "otherwise illegal activity," is part of
a controversial program that has been accused of resulting in the
accidental death of many informants (amongst other unanticipated
consequences).

4. Comey made an embarrassing gaffe during a speech at the Holocaust
Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. in 2015, when he suggested Poland
was an "accomplice" to Nazi Germany during the Holocaust. The comments
angered America's allies in Poland, whose foreign ministry summoned the
U.S. ambassador for reprimanding. The ambassador, Stephen Mull, later
apologized on Comey's behalf.

5. When the FBI demanded Apple create a "backdoor" that would allow law
enforcement agencies to unlock the cell phones of various suspects, the
company refused, sparking a battle between the feds and America's
biggest tech company. What makes this incident indicative of Comey's
questionable management of the agency is that a) The FBI jumped the gun,
as they were indeed ultimately able to crack the San Bernardino
terrorist's phone, and b) Almost every other major national security
figure sided with Apple (from former CIA Director General Petraeus to
former CIA Director James Woolsey to former director of the NSA, General
Michael Hayden), warning that such a "crack" would inevitably wind up in
the wrong hands.

6. In 2015, the FBI conducted a controversial raid on a Texas political
meeting, finger printing, photographing, and seizing phones from
attendees (some in the group believe in restoring Texas as an
independent constitutional republic).

7. During its investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of
classified material, the FBI made an unusual deal in which Clinton aides
were both given immunity and allowed to destroy their laptops.

8. Before Comey's tenure, the FBI came under attack for not taking
seriously enough the threat from terror suspects they interviewed. The
FBI interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev but let him go; Russia sent the Obama
Administration a second warning, but the FBI opted against investigating
him again. Earlier, the FBI had possession of emails sent by Nidal Hasan
saying he wanted to kill his fellow soldiers to protect the Taliban --
but didn't intervene, leading many critics to argue the tragedy that
resulted in the death of 31 Americans at Fort Hood could have been
prevented. After Comey took over, the sae unfortunate trend continued.
The father of the radical Islamist who detonated a backpack bomb in New
York City in 2016 alerted the FBI to his son's radicalization. The FBI,
however, cleared Ahmad Khan Rahami after a brief interview.

9. The FBI also investigated the terrorist who killed 49 people and
wounded 53 more at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla. Despite a more
than 10-month investigation of Omar Mateen -- during which Mateen
admitting lying to agents -- the FBI opted against pressing further and
closed its case.

10. CBS recently reported that when two terrorists sought to kill
Americans attending the "Draw Muhammad" event in Garland, Texas, the FBI
not only had an understanding an attack was coming, but actually had an
undercover agent traveling with the Islamists, Elton Simpson and Nadir
Soofi. The FBI has refused to comment on why the agent on the scene did
not intervene during the attack.

while calling Kim Jong-un a "smart cookie".

Embargo? Ha! The North Korean leader relies on an entire black-market
system dedicated to getting around UN sanctions so he can enjoy the best
the West has to sell.

http://www.salmaniac.com/kim-jong-un-growth-hacking/

Here’s how Kim Jong-un utilized growth hacking techniques to be the
supreme leader of North Korea (infographic version below):

Kim operated in stealth mode before assuming power. He studied
everything there was to know about his target market, which was the
entire North Korea.
Every successful brand has a unique identity. Kim recognized this
early on. He chose his haircut and charming smile to establish a
long-lasting presence in the minds of his target market.
Before Kim took over the reins, his father Kim Jong-il had already
tested various marketing techniques and their respective effectiveness.
Kim learned the best of them and scaled brilliantly.
Using the proper marketing channels is vital for growth. Kim
accomplished just that by restricting the number of potential channels
his target market had access to.
Kim never paid much attention to his detractors. He knew he only
had to make a positive impact within his target market to grow. And he
did exactly that by ignoring everyone else.
Kim took on his competition head on, improvising his techniques as
new challenges started to crop up. He didn’t let even those closest to
him get in his way of success.
Once Kim had his target market covered, he never let go of it. To
this day Kim maintains a tight grip over his position. A great lesson
for anyone who wants to be a successful leader or entrepreneur.

In 2013, Kim Jong-un was named the World’s 46th Most Powerful Person by
Forbes, proving yet again how essential growth hacking is to propel your
brand towards success.

I'm always reminded of YOUR very *special personal sentiments* regarding
the attacks of 911, Bill:

You might compare that with the number of lives lost on 9-11. Or the
economic injury incurred from that event.

It would have been cheaper in both lives and money to just suffer
another 9-11 every six or seven years.

Peace and justice,

I think we can ALL do well to reflect on what kind of sick sociopath
would come up with those words in honor of 911...

If a Best Buy technician is a paid FBI informant, are his computer
searches legal?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/if-a-best-buy-
technician-is-a-paid-fbi-informant-are-his-computer-searches-
legal/2017/01/09/f56028b4-d442-11e6-9cb0-
54ab630851e8_story.html?utm_term=.038060a1a810

At a giant Best Buy repair shop in Brooks, Ky., Geek Squad technicians
work on computers owned by people across the country, delving into them to
retrieve lost data. Over several years, a handful of those workers have
notified the FBI when they see signs of child pornography, earning
payments from the agency.

The existence of the small cadre of informants within one of the country’s
most popular computer repair services was revealed in the case of a
California doctor who is facing federal charges after his hard drive was
flagged by a technician. The doctor’s lawyers found that the FBI had
cultivated eight “confidential human sources” in the Geek Squad over a
four-year period, according to a judge’s order in the case, with all of
them receiving some payment.

The case raises issues about privacy and the government use of informants.
If a customer turns over their computer for repair, do they forfeit their
expectation of privacy, and their Fourth Amendment protection from
unreasonable searches? And if an informant is paid, does it compromise
their credibility or effectively convert them into an agent of the
government?

Best Buy searching a computer is legal — the customer authorized it, and
the law does not prohibit private searches. But if Best Buy serves as an
arm of the government, then a warrant or specific consent is needed. And a
federal judge in the child pornography case against Mark Rettenmaier is
going to allow defense attorneys to probe the relationship between Best
Buy and the FBI at a hearing in Los Angeles starting Wednesday.

“Their relationship is so cozy,” said defense attorney James D. Riddet,
“and so extensive that it turns searches by Best Buy into government
searches. If they’re going to set up that network between Best Buy
supervisors and FBI agents, you run the risk that Best Buy is a branch of
the FBI.”
None of the Above

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/04/draft-complete-list-of-president-trumps-accomplishments-in-his-first-100-days/

President Trump decreased the US Debt in his first 100 days by $100
Billion. (President Obama increased the US debt in his first 100 days
by more than $560 Billion.)

The US Manufacturing Index soared to a 33 year high in this period which
were the best numbers since 1983 under President Reagan.

President Trump added 298,000 jobs in his first month alone (after
President Obama said jobs were not coming back!).

Housing sales are red-hot. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market
an average 84 days. This year, it’s just 45 days.

Illegal immigration is down 67% since President Trump’s Inauguration.

NATO announced Allied spending is up $10 Billion because of President Trump.

After being nominated by President Trump, Constitutionalist Judge Neil
Gorsuch was confirmed and sworn in as Supreme Court Justice in early April.

The President has signed 66 executive orders, memoranda and
proclamations as of April 19th, including:

* Notifying Congress of a strike on Syria after it was reported that the
country used gas on its citizens.
* Dismantling Obama’s climate change initiatives.
* Travel bans for individuals from a select number of countries
embroiled in terrorist atrocities.
* Enforcing regulatory reform.
* Protecting Law enforcement.
* Mandating for every new regulation to eliminate two.
* Defeating ISIS.
* Rebuilding the military.
* Building a border wall.
* Cutting funding for sanctuary cities.
* Approving pipelines.
* Reducing regulations on manufacturers.
* Placing a hiring freeze on federal employees.
* Exiting the US from the TPP.

In addition to all this, the President has met with many foreign leaders
from across the globe including Xi from China, Abe from Japan, etc.

The President also pointed out numerous times that the MSM (Main Stream
Media) reports only on a made up Russia conspiracy story and ignores
these accomplishments. These actions are making the majority of
Americans aware of the tremendous bias in the media in the US and
abroad. This too is another major Trump accomplishment.

Winning, Winning, Winning!
