Andy McCarthy: "Obama, Clinton and Biden ALL used secret, fake-name email accounts to hide their actions"

From McCarthy's piece at the New York Post:

. . . This is how the Obama administration rolled.

When high officials were involved in a dodgy activity they wanted to shield from public disclosure laws, they frequently used pseudonymous email accounts. . . . 

[Obama] knew that she was using a non-government communications channel because, numerous times, she used it to correspond with him.

You were never supposed to know that because they concealed it on both ends. 

Clinton used not only a non-government address but a non-secure, private domain that the FBI concluded could easily have been — and probably was — penetrated by hostile foreign intelligence services. 

For his part, Obama used a pseudonymous email address.

Obviously, Obama and Clinton were not talking about the weather. 

They were talking about sensitive matters that are presumptively classified. 

Indeed, Clinton was on an official trip to Russia (which boasts one of the world’s most capable spying apparatuses) during some of this email correspondence with Obama.

If Clinton had been charged in the case, the fact that she was communicating with Obama and that he was using a fake address would have become central to the case. 

That would have been profoundly embarrassing to Obama — and there was no way the Obama Justice Department was going to let that happen.

So the administration did three things.

First, the Obama White House argued that it was no big deal for high officials to use pseudonymous emails — in fact, it was standard practice.

Second, Obama made it publicly known in an April 2016 interview that he did not want Clinton to be indicted. . . .

Joe Biden used Pseudonym Email Address while he was Vice President

 How Biden used personal email to share some government business with son Hunter\

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer is now pressing National Archives to release unredacted emails between Biden, his son & business partners. 


In late November 2014 -- before the rest of the world knew that American Martin O'Connor was about to be released from detention in Turkey -- the U.S. embassy in Istanbul sent an email to the State Department that was then forwarded to senior advisers to then-Vice President Joe Biden, the Obama White House point man for many foreign policy crises.

"The lead attorney for Mr. O'Connor reports that the court granted the detention appeal and he expected Mr. O'Connor to be released from jail today, barring any unforeseen problems," the U.S. embassy in Istanbul wrote in an email that got forwarded to top Obama administration security and diplomacy officials, including current Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland. "Mr. O'Connor will not be allowed to leave the country until his next hearing which is set for December 11, 2014. The lawyer expressed confidence that he will be able to leave after that hearing. The attorney is handling his release arrangements, pick up and temporary housing near his law firm's office. Istanbul consular plans to speak with Mr. O'Connor after his release."

State Department officials forwarded the information to the vice president's office, where Biden aide Colin Kahl (now President Biden's Undersecretrary of Defense for Policy) sent it to the private email account robinware456@gmail.com. It wasn't just any private account. It was one of three pseudonym accounts used by Joe Biden. . . .

Something to remember in the debate over charter schools in Montana

Montana is one of the last states without charter schools, but that may be about to change. Gov. Greg Gianforte signed a pair of bills into law that establish separate and distinct charter school systems in the state — one widely embraced by Republican legislators and advocates of past charter school efforts, and the other supported by the bulk of Montana’s public education organizations as well as a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers.

But there is a new report that should be kept in mind as Democrats in the state seek to challenge the new law. From the Wall Street Journal.

Stanford’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes (Credo) report is the third in a series (2009, 2013, 2023) tracking charter-school outcomes over 15 years. The study is one of the largest ever conducted, covering over two million charter students in 29 states, New York City and Washington, D.C., and a control group in traditional public schools.

Credo’s judgment is unequivocal: Most charter schools “produce superior student gains despite enrolling a more challenging student population.” In reading and math, “charter schools provide their students with stronger learning when compared to the traditional public schools.” The nationwide gains for charter students were six days in math and 16 days in reading. 

The comparisons in some states are more remarkable. In New York, charter students were 75 days ahead in reading and 73 days in math compared with traditional public-school peers. In Illinois they were 40 days ahead in reading and 48 in math. In Washington state, 26 days ahead in reading and 39 in math. Those differences can add up to an extra year of learning across an entire elementary education. . . .

Massive errors in US Census count that helped Democrats

 The 2020 US Census undercounted population in six states, five of which are Republican states (Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas) and one Democrat state (Illinois). The Census overcounted population in eight states, six of which are Democrat states (Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Rhode Island) and two Republican states (Ohio and Utah). Some of these errors are huge, over 5% in Arkansas, Delaware, and Rhode Island and in a number of cases changed the distribution of congressional seats.

These errors clearly gave Democrats extra congressional seats and extra electoral votes in the presidential election. Since population is also used for the federal government to decide who gets the money that they give out, Democrat states are benefiting from these mistakes.


With all the anger over Trump's behavior on Jan 6th, 2021, here are his really reprehensible tweets that he put out that day




IRS Sent $1.3 Billion In Stimulus Checks To Locked Up Criminals, Including Murderers

More than 1.1 million incarcerated criminals.

~163,000 of those recipients are serving life sentences without the possibility of parole.

Biden’s nearly $2 trillion stimulus bill lacked guardrails.

At The Federalist: Data Shows White Supremacists Are Not The Most Likely Mass Murderers

 I have a new op-ed at The Federalist.

Democrats are lying to Americans about the most likely motivations for mass murderers and the prevalence of guns in violent crime. 

In his Buffalo, New York speech last week following a mass shooting, President Biden showed he still has only two things on his mind regarding crime: guns and white supremacists.


No one can defend white supremacists. But with violent crime soaring and this latest attack in Buffalo, people want something done. Yet Biden’s agenda won’t make people safer. 


“Look, we’ve seen the mass shootings in Charleston, South Carolina; El Paso, Texas; in Pittsburgh. Last year in Atlanta. This week in Dallas, Texas, and now in Buffalo. In Buffalo, New York. White supremacy is a poison. It’s a poison. It really is. Running through our body politic. And it’s been allowed to fester and grow right in front of our eyes. No more. I mean, no more.”


Of the 82 mass public shootings from January 1998 to May 2021, 9 percent have known or alleged ties to white supremacists, neo-Nazis, or anti-immigrant views. And many of the anti-immigrant attackers, such as the Buffalo murderer, hold decidedly environmentalist views that are more in line with the Democrat agenda. 


Other groups commit mass public shootings disproportionately more than whites do. While non-Middle Eastern whites make up about 64% of the population, they make up 58% of the mass public shooters. Another nine percent are carried out by people of middle eastern origin, who make up only 0.4% of the country’s population. That makes middle easterners the most likely ethnic/racial group to carry out mass public shootings. Blacks, Asians, and American Indians commit these attacks at a slightly higher rate than their share of the population. Hispanics commit them at much lower rates (11% lower) than their share of the population.


Seventy-one percent of mass public shooters have no identifiable political views.


But you would never know this from watching TV police dramas or listening to Biden’s constant claim that white supremacists pose the biggest threat of domestic terrorism.


Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed in testimony in April that white supremacy is the top terrorism-related threat to the homeland. But when pressed, Mayorkas couldn’t name a single white supremacy case that his department referred to the Department of Justice for prosecution.


White supremacists with guns are not the threat that our government would have us believe. It’s not just that white supremacy is rare – so too are gun crimes. The number of gun crimes has been falling dramatically, and they now make up less than 8% of violent crimes in America.


“We can keep assault weapons off our streets. We’ve done it before. I did it when I passed the crime bill last time, and violence went down, shootings went down. We can’t prevent people from being radicalized to violence, but we can address the relentless exploitation of the internet to recruit and mobilize terrorism. We just need to have the courage to do that, to stand up.”


Biden’s focus on guns, and particularly assault weapons, is misplaced. On Tuesday, Biden again bragged about how wonderful his 1994 assault weapon ban was in stopping mass public shootings, but even studies paid for by the Clinton administration couldn’t find evidence of its effectiveness. 


If the Federal Assault Weapons Ban really drove the changes in the rate of mass public shootings, attacks with assault weapons should have become less common during the ban. Then they should have become more common, at least as a share of total shootings, after the ban ended in 2004. But that isn’t what happened. Comparing the ten years before 1994 to the ten years after, we find that the percentage of mass public shootings with assault weapons rose slightly when the ban was in effect (going from 22.2% to 23.5%) and then fell in the ten years after the ban ended (23.5% to 18.2%).


Biden’s “guns first” approach ignores a basic fact – over 92% of violent crimes in America do not involve firearms. In addition, although Biden blames guns for the increase in violent crime, the latest data show that gun crimes fell dramatically.


new McLaughlin & Associates survey of 1,000 likely voters from April 20th to 26th for the Crime Prevention Research Center shows how misinformed people are. People across the country, of all races and incomes, have wildly inaccurate beliefs about how frequently violent crime involves guns. The average likely American voter is way off, thinking that over 46% of violent crimes involve guns. The people who had the most inaccurate views that the rate of violent crime with guns was the highest were the ones who most strongly supported gun control.


It might not be easy to accept, but focusing solely on guns and white supremacy isn’t a wise use of resources.

Something to remember when Democrats claim racism: 13 Senate Democrats voted against Black female judge nominated by Trump

 With the new Supreme Court nomination coming soon, claims of racism are sure to be lodged against any Republican who votes against the black female that Biden has promised to nominate. From Fox News:

The Senate Democrats in question all voted against Ada E. Brown, former President Trump’s nominee for district judge of the northern district of Texas.

Brown, a Black woman, was confirmed in September 2019 by a vote of 80-13, with the 13 "nay" votes coming from Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer, Tammy Baldwin, Richard Blumenthal, Sherrod Brown, Maria Cantwell, Catherine Cortez Masto, Kirsten Gillibrand, Mazie Hirono, Ed Markey, Patty Murray, Brian Schatz, Debbie Stabenow and Ron Wyden.

Only two of the offices for the 13 senators who voted against Brown’s confirmation responded to Fox News Digitals’ requests for comment.
