Today’s Stoic: If You Want the World to be Better, Improve Yourself...


Tolstoy believed his most essential work was not his novels but his daily read, A Calendar of Wisdom. Like in The Daily Stoic, each day in that book is a meditation on a theme of ancient wisdom which provides insights for self-improvement. In a June entry (published in the early 20th century, but clearly both timeless and very timely), Tolstoy speaks about how to fight evil and improve society. It doesn’t start with ambitious plans to remake the order of things or with the passing of laws to ban this behavior or that one. On the contrary. “There can be only one way to fight the general evil of life,” he writes. “It is in the moral, religious, and spiritual perfection of your own life.” The Stoics would have agreed with this, that a more virtuous society begins at home—at our home. If you want the world to be better, improve yourself, for this is entirely in your circle of control. To paraphrase Marcus Aurelius: Don’t talk about what a good person should be like. Be that person. Again, because this is in your control. But also because it is the most compelling argument and the best way to prod others to change. How can you possibly have the gravitas necessary to convince others to be better when you clearly haven’t convinced yourself? How can you fight evil or sin or bad habits in the world when you’re losing the battle at home? Of course, this is not an excuse to not be politically or charitably active, but it should inform your priorities. Get your life in order. Do the work you need to do. Because it will make the biggest difference and it will give you the platform—the moral high ground—necessary to make a difference for the world

The POTUS V Little A Schitt, for brains 🧠...


PRESIDENT TRUMP VERSUS LITTLE ADAM SCHITT You have to love President Trump who says out loud what others are thinking, not so coincidently the underlying theme of One Citizen Speaking… Consider the craziness, chaos, confusion and outright lies coming from Representative Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the intelligence committee who loudly and consistently provides his view of an alternative reality. Especially when he claims that the truth can be found in a document’s classified details and open;y calls for the declassification of the document. And when it appears that the document may be declassified by the President, Schiff immediately declares that such declassification would severely impact national security. All of this against background analysis that there is nothing unknown of import in the document, including the names of key players and bad actors. Democrats negotiating with FBI on classified info in memo (February 14, 2018) The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday that he is continuing to negotiate with the FBI over the release of a memo packed with classified information from secret surveillance applications, but remains unsure if the White House will attempt to block its release. Democrats argue their memo, with as yet undisclosed details used to win court approval to listen in on a former adviser to the campaign of President Donald Trump, would rebut a Republican memo released two weeks ago. Trump has said the GOP memo proves his campaign was the target of a politically motivated spying operation. Democrats have argued the memo would prove that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant approved for Carter Page used credible evidence, and not just allegations contained in the “Steele Dossier,” which was bankrolled in part by a lawyer working for the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee. Schiff noted Wednesday that the memo includes classified details from four FISA applications on Page — the original request filed in October 2016, and three subsequent renewals. [Source] Adam Schiff: 'Clear abuse of power’ for Trump to have Russia-related documents declassified (September 17, 2018) Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, called President Trump’s decision Monday to order the declassification of documents concerning the federal Russia investigation a “clear abuse of power.” “President Trump, in a clear abuse of power, has decided to intervene in a pending law enforcement investigation by ordering the selective release of materials he believes are helpful to his defense team and thinks will advance a false narrative,” Schiff said in a statement. “With respect to some of these materials, I have been previously informed by the FBI and Justice Department that they would consider their release a red line that must not be crossed as they may compromise sources and methods,” Schiff added. “This is evidently of no consequence to a President who cares about nothing about the country and everything about his narrow self-interest.” [Source] President Trump nails it… ADAM-SCHIFF-TURMP-TWEET Bottom line… ADAM-SCHITT We are so screwed when Adam Schiff becomes the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. -- steve

Possible Scam Provided by a Friend: BEWARE! This is very clever. `I would probably fall for it if not warned. Give this wide distribution. This scam is actually very clever. Just when you thought you'd heard it all. Be very careful out there! Beware of people gifts. The following is a recounting of the incident from the victim: Wednesday a week ago, I had a phone call from someone saying that he was from some outfit called: "Express Couriers," (The name could be any courier company). He asked if I was going to be home because there was a package for me that required a signature. The caller said that the delivery would arrive at my home in roughly an hour. Sure enough, about an hour later, a uniformed delivery man turned up with a beautiful basket of flowers and a bottle of wine. I was very surprised since there was no special occasion or holiday, and I certainly didn't expect anything like it. Intrigued, I inquired as to who the sender was. The courier replied, "I don't know, I'm only delivering the package." Apparently, a greeting card was being sent separately. (The card has never arrived!) There was also a consignment note with the gift. He then went on to explain that because the gift contained alcohol, there was a $3.50 "delivery/ verification charge," providing proof that he had actually delivered the package to an adult (of legal drinking age), and not just left it on the doorstep where it could be stolen or taken by anyone, especially a minor. This sounded logical and I offered to pay him cash. He then said that the delivery company required payment to be by credit or debit card only, so that everything is properly accounted for, and this would help in keeping a legal record of the transaction. He added, "Couriers don't carry cash to avoid loss or likely targets for robbery." My husband, who by this time was standing beside me, pulled out his credit card, and 'John,' the "delivery man," asked him to swipe the card on a small mobile card machine with a small screen and keypad. Frank, my husband, was asked to enter his PIN number and a receipt was printed out. He was given a copy of the transaction. The guy said everything was in order, and wished us good day. To our horrible surprise, between Thursday and the following Monday, $4,000 had been charged/withdrawn from our credit/debit account at various ATM machines. Apparently the "mobile credit card machine," which the deliveryman carried now had all the info necessary to create a "dummy" card with all our card details including the PIN number. Upon finding out about the illegal transactions on our card, we immediately notified the bank which issued us a new card, and our credit/debit account was closed. We also personally went to the Police, where it was confirmed that it is definitely a scam because several households had been similarly hit. WARNING: Be wary of accepting any "surprise gift or package," which you neither expected nor personally ordered, especially if it involves any kind of payment as a condition of receiving the gift or package. Also, never accept anything If you do not personally know or there is no proper identification of who the sender is. Above all, the only time you should give out any personal credit/debit card information is when you yourself initiated the purchase or transaction! PLEASE Pass this on, it may just prevent someone else from being swindled.

Black Lives Matter Hate Group Attempts To Disrupt ‘Nights Of Lights’ Holiday Festival In Saint Augustine, Florida And Fails Wonderfully


black-lives-matter-hate-group-saint-augustine-florida-nights-of-lights-november-17-2018-nteb In a Deep South crowd of over 10,000 people, with more pickup trucks and people will concealed carry than you could shake a stick at, not one person reacted at all. For the past 25 years, Saint Augustine in Florida has held their annual 'Nights Of Lights' tree lighting festival that has grown so large National Geographic has named it as one of the top 10 holiday lights festivals in the world . And for the second year in a row, it has become the target of malicious hate group, Black Lives Matter. Since 2011, we have been blessed to live in Saint Augustine, a city that is one of the most ethnically diverse places I've ever been to. Every summer, over 8 million tourists from around the world come here to enjoy the sights and sounds of America's oldest city. Originally settled by Spain in 1565, spanish culture and history are on display everywhere you look. Walk along historic Saint George Street and you will see people of all races and colors living and working together side by side in harmony. Not once in all these years have I ever heard someone utter the 'n word' outside of a rap song, and neither have I seen any public examples of racism, or preferential treatment given or withheld to someone because of their skin color. All in all, Saint Augustine is a near perfect place to live, and the people here border on blissfully happy. So why the heck is Black Lives Matter coming here and calling Saint Augustine the 'most racist city' in America? Because they're looking for trouble, that's why. And what better place to find it than at a huge holiday tree lighting festival that attracts a crowd of over 10,000 people? How great would it be, as they taunt the holiday revellers with chants of 'Amerika KKK' and 'White Lies Matter', if they could get just a few of those southern 'good ol boys' to take their poison bait and react? Think of the publicity that would generate on CNN, who would play it on an endless loop. That's what hate merchants like this group live for. But guess what? In a Deep South crowd of over 10,000 people, with more pickup trucks and people will concealed carry than you could shake a stick at, not one person reacted at all. There was no name calling, no one grabbed signs out of their hands, no physical altercations of any kind from that massive crowd. Black Lives Matter came looking for hatred and headlines, and were wonderfully and marvelously denied. Love out over hate tonight, and it was beautiful. Thank you, Saint Augustine, I was so proud of my town tonight.

Why are the House Republicans Afraid to Speak the TRUTH?


GUTLESS REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE ARE AFRAID TO SPEAK THE TRUTH It is a historical fact that the Democrat Party was the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK, and anti-Civil Rights legislation. Yet, the gutless GOP refuses to engage… What to make of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Standing before a sign that reads “No Justice, No Peace,” who openly feted a race-hustling racist, anti-Semite, and tax evader? Pelosi-Sharpton “We’re going to be visionary, we’re going to be unifying, we’re going to be healing, we’re going to be transparent in how we do this. We’re going to be respectful of other views," Pelosi said. "But we’re going to try to find our common ground where we can. We have a responsibility to do that but where we can’t, stand our ground like a rock. That’s what Thomas Jefferson advised us to do.” She added, “Thank you for helping take back America. People all over the place are calling me, writing, in airports, here and there, saying, ‘Thank you for saving America.’ I give those thanks to you. Thank you for saving America. Reverend Sharpton, thank you for saving America.” ~ Nancy Pelosi, National Action Network Legislative & Policy Conference “Thank You for Saving America.” Which begs the question, which America did this race-baiting, anti-Semite, Judas Goat save? Bottom line… What the hell happened to the GOP? Why are they ignoring that the progressive socialist democrats are campaigning 24/7, 365 days a year for their nominees in 2020? Why are they refusing to articulate their position relative to the democrats? Why have they not vigorously investigated and prosecuted democrat criminal activity that is self-evident? Why do they continue to fundraise and tell you all of the wonderful things they are going to do – even though they had the House, the Senate, and the Presidency? Why do they continue to take crap from Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff, and others who are lying through their teeth? Why do they not engage against the progressive mainstream media? Or even have their own “truth squad” on social media platforms? Why aren’t they asking why the democrats refuse to disavow the racist anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam? I think the wrong party is wearing the pink hats. pussy-gop If there is such a thing as systemic racism and bigotry in this nation, I suggest that we examine history to demonstrate that such racism and bigotry is closely associated with the Democrat party who categorically refuses to denounce racists who are of color, minorities, or part of their vote-spinning coalition. We are so screwed. -- steve

Highlighting C-Span’s Fall Lineup: The Soros Produced/Financed “Shipwreck of Fools” Taking place in the US House of Representatives it is a hybrid governmental investigative sitcom focused on impeaching the POTUS and forcing Socialism on the US. Directed by the actual senile Speaker of the US House with Madmax Walters, Sslimjimmy (not) Nadder, Iliedja Cummings, & various other Hypocrites/Socialists/Progressives performing either as Committee chairs and/or useful idiots. This show is expected to last approximately 2 years. It will be both dull, embarrassing, and amusing...full of sound and fury signifying NOTHING! Given enough rope, they will surely hang themselves! Stupid is as Stupid Does....!!!

Moonbeam, Progressives & California Wildlife’s...


PROGRESSIVES AND CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES On this solemn day when Borderline mass shooting hero Ventura County Sergeant Ron Helus is laid to rest, California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown is participating in a photo-op at the nearby Woolsey fire. Of course, the governor continues to spout his global warming nonsense as if green energy and wealth distribution can stop or mitigate wildfires. Here is one simple solution… Using zoning restrictions and building codes to eliminate large palm trees that ignite like a match head and become ember factories that can project burning material for miles – allowing the fire to skip over fire lines and travel miles in minutes. Here is a thirty-plus foot palm tree with under-hanging dead material ready to spread deadly embers in the wind. If not for the wind direction, burning material from the nearby hill could have easily sent this tree up in flames and spread the destruction far and wide, forcing embers under the eaves of houses and into attics through ventilation grilles. (I am standing on my lawn when I took this picture.) Photo-3 A palm tree going up like a match head and showering the area with burning embers. Match Embers everywhere. Embers Bottom line… You can’t stop drought in Southern California which is essentially a dessert. You cannot stop the ferocious Santa Ana winds. But you can stop building dangerous homes in dangerous areas using zoning and building codes. We have brush clearance that must be completed before June 1st. We have fire resistant roofs. But we still get evacuated when the fire comes calling. -- steve

WHEN CLIMATE RESEARCH IS WRONG OR INADEQUATE WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT POLITICIANS AND PUBLIC POLICY.....


WHEN CLIMATE RESEARCH IS WRONG OR INADEQUATE WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT POLITICIANS AND PUBLIC POLICY JUST-RESTING The research had everything … 1. The research strongly supported the general “consensus” of the climate alarmists as the authors’ work independently confirmed that the oceans were warming as previously thought and this information has implications for policy-relevant measurements involving climate change. Abstract The ocean is the main source of thermal inertia in the climate system1. During recent decades, ocean heat uptake has been quantified by using hydrographic temperature measurements and data from the Argo float program, which expanded its coverage after 20072,3. However, these estimates all use the same imperfect ocean dataset and share additional uncertainties resulting from sparse coverage, especially before 20074,5. Here we provide an independent estimate by using measurements of atmospheric oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2)—levels of which increase as the ocean warms and releases gases—as a whole-ocean thermometer. We show that the ocean gained 1.33 ± 0.20 × 1022 joules of heat per year between 1991 and 2016, equivalent to a planetary energy imbalance of 0.83 ± 0.11 watts per square metre of Earth’s surface. We also find that the ocean-warming effect that led to the outgassing of O2 and CO2 can be isolated from the direct effects of anthropogenic emissions and CO2 sinks. Our result—which relies on high-precision O2 measurements dating back to 19916—suggests that ocean warming is at the high end of previous estimates, with implications for policy-relevant measurements of the Earth response to climate change, such as climate sensitivity to greenhouse gases7 and the thermal component of sea-level rise8. 2. The research was conducted by a well-credential researchers from prestigious institutions such as Laure Resplandy of Princeton University, Ralph Keeling of the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and eight other authors (Eddebbar, Y.; Brooks, M. K.; Wang, R.; Bopp, L.; Long, M. C.; Dunne, J. P.; Koeve, W.; and Oschlies, A). 3. The research had an impressive title, “Quantification of ocean heat uptake from changes in atmospheric O2 and CO2 composition.” 4. The research was published in one of the world’s most prestigious peer-reviewed journal, Nature. (Quantification of ocean heat uptake from changes in atmospheric O2 and CO2 composition) 5. The mathematics surely “supported” the authors’ observations and calculations. 6. The mainstream media trumpeted the findings with implied certitude using the general headline, “Oceans have absorbed 60 percent more heat than previously thought.” The Washington Post … Startling new research finds large buildup of heat in the oceans, suggesting a faster rate of global warming -- The findings mean the world might have less time to curb carbon emissions. The world’s oceans have been soaking up far more excess heat in recent decades than scientists realized, suggesting that Earth could be set to warm even faster than predicted in the years ahead, according to new research published Wednesday. The Los Angeles Times … Oceans warming faster than anticipated, giving even less time to stave off worst impacts of climate change, study finds The world’s oceans may be heating up faster than previously thought — meaning the planet could have even less time to avoid catastrophic global warming than predicted just weeks ago by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. According to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature, ocean temperatures have been warming 60% more than outlined by the IPCC. “The ocean warmed more than we thought, and that has serious implications for future policy,” said Laure Resplandy, a researcher at Princeton University’s Environmental Institute who coauthored the report. “This is definitely something that should and will be taken into account in the next report.” 7. Unfortunately, according to some researchers who read the article, the work appeared to contain significant mistakes which forced the authors to reconsider their work. From the authors… Note from co-author Ralph Keeling Nov. 9, 2018: I am working with my co-authors to address two problems that came to our attention since publication. These problems, related to incorrectly treating systematic errors in the O2 measurements and the use of a constant land O2:C exchange ratio of 1.1, do not invalidate the study’s methodology or the new insights into ocean biogeochemistry on which it is based. We expect the combined effect of these two corrections to have a small impact on our calculations of overall heat uptake, but with larger margins of error. We are redoing the calculations and preparing author corrections for submission to Nature. As reported in the Washington Post… Scientists acknowledge key errors in study of how fast the oceans are warming A major study claimed the oceans were warming much faster than previously thought. But researchers now say they can’t necessarily make that claim. Scientists behind a major study that claimed the Earth’s oceans are warming faster than previously thought now say their work contained inadvertent errors that made their conclusions seem more certain than they actually are. Two weeks after the high-profile study was published in the journal Nature, its authors have submitted corrections to the publication. The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, home to several of the researchers involved, also noted the problems in the scientists' work and corrected a news release on its website, which previously had asserted that the study detailed how the Earth’s oceans “have absorbed 60 percent more heat than previously thought.” “Unfortunately, we made mistakes here,” said Ralph Keeling, a climate scientist at Scripps, who was a co-author of the study. “I think the main lesson is that you work as fast as you can to fix mistakes when you find them.” The researchers’ alarming findings were uncritically reported by numerous mainstream-media outlets but Nic Lewis, a mathematician and popular critic of the consensus on man-made climate change, quickly identified errors. “The findings of the . . . paper were peer reviewed and published in the world’s premier scientific journal and were given wide coverage in the English-speaking media,” Lewis wrote in a critique of the paper. “Despite this, a quick review of the first page of the paper was sufficient to raise doubts as to the accuracy of its results.” Ralph Keeling, a climate scientist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography who co-authored the paper, said he and his partner, Laure Resplandy of Princeton, quickly realized the implications of their mistake once Lewis pointed it out. “When we were confronted with his insight it became immediately clear there was an issue there,” he said. “We’re grateful to have it be pointed out quickly so that we could correct it quickly.” After correcting their mistake, Keeling said their research indicates oceans are warming only slightly faster than previously thought, not dramatically faster as they initially reported. Keeling said the miscalculation was made when they were calculating their margin of error, which had a larger range (10 to 70 percent) than they initially believed. “Our error margins are too big now to really weigh in on the precise amount of warming that’s going on in the ocean,” Keeling said. “We really muffed the error margins.” Bottom line… The primary reason that this paper was featured in the mainstream media is that it used an independent means to confirm a previous finding and was estimating even greater effects than the previous findings. After the paper is re-worked, the conclusion is likely to affirm the previous research findings but also note that there is a larger estimate of uncertainty associated with these findings. The purpose of this blog entry is three-fold. One, it is a departure from the malignant politics that seem to surround us on a daily basis. Two, it has nothing to do with mass shootings or wildfires. And three, it merely points out that this is the method of science in action. Where research is published for verification, falsification, or suggestions for improvement. Those that found the anomalous calculations are not “deniers” nor are they to be denigrated for their viewpoint. Likewise, the researchers published their work in good faith, and it should be accepted as such. The bottom line is that climate systems are chaotic fluid systems with a multiplicity of known and unknown factors, and to use questionable science to drive public policies and political agendas is wrong. We just do not know what we do not know. All of the speculative results come from imperfect computer modeling, and the underlying hypothesis cannot be tested in any timeframe that would be relevant to five to ten generations. We cannot measure man’s climate input amid nature’s variability. And, to use imprecise or bone-headed hypotheses to restrict man’s freedoms and liberties while engaging in wealth redistribution is wrong. The question that one should ask the researchers is a simple one: if the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide lags the rise in ocean temperatures, how can carbon dioxide be the cause of global warming? We are so screwed. -- steve

VOTE COUNTS: AN AMERICAN DISCRACE...!


VOTE COUNTS: AN AMERICAN DISGRACE Every day we hear about vote irregularities in Broward County, Florida. Ranging from alleged misconduct on the part of the officials running the vote tabulation effort to the individuals handling the votes. It is not a laughing matter… not-funny According to a PJ Media report, election recounts rarely swing elections, but when they do, they rarely swing right. In the wake of the recount uproar in Florida’s Broward County and Arizona, there are common themes of ballots mysteriously being “found” in the trunks of cars or delivery trucks and illegal votes getting tallied. Perhaps more disturbing is that despite the rampant evidence of ballot stuffing or other wrongdoing, there appears to be no follow-up with criminal investigation. Lack of reprisal for overt election fraud only encourages more fraud… [Source] Bottom line… How are we going to have honest representation as long as the votes are counted by corrupt individuals pursuing a political agenda? These are criminal acts and so rarely punished. You read about the partisan who voted multiple times, but rarely those who attempt or succeed to manipulate vote counts. Unfortunately, history tends to indicate that the bulk of election fraud is connected with the Democrat Party. It is now time to hold the individual parties responsible for the official actions of their members. We are so screwed. -- steve

Barack Obama Campaign Volunteer And Democrat James Polite Arrested For Vandalizing NYC Synagogue With Anti-Semitic Death Threats by Geoffrey Grider


#barack-obama-campaign-volunteer-james-polites-brooklyn-arrested-anti-semitic-vandalism-synagogue-hitler The New York City Police Department arrested a Democratic activist on Friday night for allegedly vandalizing a synagogue in New York City with vile anti-Semitic messages. This comes just days after 11 people were murdered at a Pittsburgh synagogue in what was the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history Take a quick peek over on fake news CNN, MSNBC or any of the other pre-programmed robot talking head facilities, and see if you read anything about the arrest of former Obama campaign volunteer James Polite. Wait, let me save you some time. None of the fake news outlets are talking about this story so don't bother looking for it. Barack Obama has been on the campaign trail this week, speaking to crowds of hundreds with a fiery, anti-Trump message. Obama, long known for his hatred of Israel in general, and for his hatred of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu in particular, seems to have inspired one of his loyal followers to vandalize a Jewish synagogue in NYC. This coming less than a week after the slaughter of 11 Jews at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Yet amazingly, not one reporter in all of fake news land wants you to know about Obama campaign volunteer James Polite and his caustic death threats against Jews in Brooklyn. I wonder why that would be? But you can best believe if James Polite was a Republican, it would be the #1 top news story from now until Midterm elections on Tuesday. Oh wait a minute, I think I just figured out by the Liberal media isn't talking about this. FROM THE DAILY WIRE: Authorities arrested 26-year-old James Polite, a former volunteer on Obama's first presidential campaign, for allegedly vandalizing Brooklyn’s Union Temple on Thursday with anti-Semitic messages that included "die Jew rats we are here," "Jews better be ready," and "Hitler." Polite interned with Christine C. Quinn, the former Democratic Speaker of the New York City Council, for several years and worked "on initiatives to combat hate crime[s]," The New York Times reported in 2017. The DCNF reviewed Polite's Facebook and determined that it was the same James Polite profiled by The New York Times. UPDATE: The individual wanted for anti-Semitic graffiti at Union Temple in #Brooklyn has been APPREHENDED thanks to the hard working officers that are out there every day and night keeping this city safe. #NYPDProtecting https://t.co/zLFiDe2GCp — NYPD NEWS (@NYPDnews) November 3, 2018 According to the DCNF, Polite wrote a post this week that stated: "A dream with eyes wide open. civil war is here. Nobody gotta die. Mexico, latin America, caribbean vs. Jew n***er pigs. One person touch me this whole s*** a smoking." Polite also "posted a cell-phone picture of a burning American flag, with the caption 'Sometimes things take a lil heat to grow,'" the DCNF's report added. "Police suspect him of setting fires at 'seven shuls and yeshivas in Williamsburg' that same night, before the temple vandalism. Security footage captured that, too." A report this week from The New York Times revealed that "contrary to what are surely the prevailing assumptions, anti-Semitic incidents have constituted half of all hate crimes in New York this year, according to the Police Department. To put that figure in context, there have been four times as many crimes motivated by bias against Jews — 142 in all — as there have against blacks. Hate crimes against Jews have outnumbered hate crimes targeted at transgender people by a factor of 20." READ MORE
For nearly eight years, the Obama administration sought to cover up serial wrongdoing by waging a veritable war against the watchdog inspqectors general of various federal agencies. Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, an Obama administration appointee, is scheduled to deliver a report this week on DOJ and FBI abuses during the 2016 campaign cycle. Remember: His last investigation of FBI misconduct advised a criminal referral for fired former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who allegedly lied to federal investigators. X McCabe and at least a half-dozen other FBI employees quit, retired, were fired or were reassigned as a result of fallout from the politicization of the FBI. Yet, as Barack Obama left office, his chief of staff, Denis McDonough, strangely boasted that the Obama administration "has been historically free of scandal." Obama himself recently concluded of his eight-year tenure, "I didn't have scandals." Those were puzzling assertions, given nearly nonstop scandals during Obama's eight years in office involving the IRS; General Services Administration; Peace Corps; Secret Service; Veterans Affairs; and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, not to mention the Clinton email server scandal, the Benghazi scandal and the 2016 Democratic National Committee email scandal. For nearly eight years, the Obama administration sought to cover up serial wrongdoing by waging a veritable war against the watchdog inspectors general of various federal agencies. In 2014, 47 of the nation's 73 inspectors general signed a letter alleging that Obama had stonewalled their "ability to conduct our work thoroughly, independently, and in a timely manner." The frustrated nonpartisan auditors cited systematic Obama administration refusals to turn over incriminating documents that were central to their investigations. The administration had purportedly tried to sidetrack an IG investigation into possible misconduct by then-Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson. In addition, the Obama administration reportedly thwarted IG investigations of Amtrak, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Troubled Asset Relief Program and the Office of Management and Budget.

Despite the campaign against these independent federal auditors, a number of inspectors general still managed to issue damning indictments of unethical behavior. In 2012, Horowitz recommended that 14 Justice Department and ATF officials be disciplined for their conduct in the "Fast and Furious" gun-walking scandal. A 2013 IG audit found that the IRS had targeted conservative groups for special scrutiny prior to the 2012 Obama re-election effort. In 2014, an internal audit revealed that CIA officials had hacked the Senate Intelligence Committee's computers while compiling a report on enhanced interrogation techniques. CIA Director John Brennan had claimed that his agents were not improperly monitoring Senate staff computer files. He was forced to retract his denials and apologize for his prevarication. In 2016, the State Department's inspector general found that Hillary Clinton had never sought approval for her reckless and illegal use of an unsecured private email server. The IG also found that staffers who were worried about national security being compromised by the unsecured server were silenced by other Clinton aides. Still, Obama was right in a way: A scandal does not become a scandal if no one acts on findings of improper behavior. Under former attorneys general Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, the findings of dozens of IGs were snubbed. That raises the question: What good are inspectors general if a president ignores any illegality and impropriety that they have uncovered? Answer: not much good at all — unless an incoming administration is of a different political party than the outgoing administration. Once that happens in our politicized system, there is a rare interest in not covering up or ignoring a damning IG report, but in acting on it. We may now be experiencing one of those unusual occasions. Soon, various inspector general reports may appear concerning FISA court abuse and improper behavior at the Department of Justice, FBI, CIA and National Security Council during the 2016 campaign cycle. The investigators are, for the most part, Obama appointees, not Trump appointees. At some point, the idea of toothless inspectors general needs to be revisited. Something is terribly wrong when dozens of IGs found wrongdoing, only to object that their efforts were being thwarted by an Obama administration that had appointed most of them — and claimed to be scandal-free. Finding government abuse and doing nothing about it is worse than not finding any at all.
