A Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation into the “unmasking” requests made by outgoing Obama administration officials in 2016 and 2017 has ended without any criminal charges or findings of wrongdoing. US Attorney John Bash, who left the department last week, had concluded his review without criminal charges or any public report. The deep state has protected itself again.

A Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation into the “unmasking” requests made by outgoing Obama administration officials in 2016 and 2017 has ended without any criminal charges or findings of wrongdoing, according to the Washington Post.

The Post did not report whether that included investigations into leaks of the names of Americans who had been “unmasked” in classified reports — specifically, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, whose name was leaked to the Post.

The Post reported:

The federal prosecutor appointed by Attorney General William P. Barr to review whether Obama-era officials improperly requested the identities of individuals whose names were redacted in intelligence documents has completed his work without finding any substantive wrongdoing, according to people familiar with the matter.
The revelation that U.S. Attorney John Bash, who left the department last week, had concluded his review without criminal charges or any public report will rankle President Trump at a moment when he is particularly upset at the Justice Department. The department has so far declined to release the results of Bash’s work, though people familiar with his findings say they would likely disappoint conservatives who have tried to paint the “unmasking” of names — a common practice in government to help understand classified documents — as a political conspiracy.

In May, then-Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell declassified a list of Obama administration officials who had made unmasking requests related to Flynn. Former Vice President Joe Biden’s name was among those on the list.

Biden’s ‘Kids in Cages’ Prove Hypocrisy on Immigration

March 1, 2021 NY Post and Breitbart 2

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris savaged President Trump for keeping “kids in cages.” But now they’re doing the same thing by housing 700 migrant teens in some of the very same facilities they decried. Biden is ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program for Central American asylum seekers, which took pressure off the border.

New York School Found Exposing Kindergartners to BLM Propaganda

Buffalo’s schools have high rates of failure. In fifth grade, only 18% of students are proficient in math and only 20% proficient in English. One-third fail to graduate from high school. In response, school administrators have not tried to improve academic achievement, but have launched an ant-racist training program.

So-called “government” is pure fiction. Don’t obey it. Don’t fund it. Don’t believe it. Stay away and don’t let the predators-that-be or their paid thugs harm you. Self-defense is a virtue. Exterminating dangerous predators is a virtue.

I am not at all surprised that there are no charges. I am afraid that all this investigation by Durham, Horowitz and whoever else is never going to amount to anything and that our two-tiered system of justice will continue no matter who wins the election.
