THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF CULINARY POLITICS-ELEMENTAL NEWS OF THE DAY COMMENTARY-OPINION-SPORTS-FOOD SERVICE FOR TUESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2019 BY CHEF TIRESIAS HELENUS GRINIKEODOPULOPOSLUS

FALL SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,334 AT THE AICP-END


324 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



All roads lead to Comey; from Comey, where will they lead next?
Century City, CA 90067, 12-17-2019 Tuesday:   Good morning, friends, welcome to the world’s greatest culinary blog in which, professional chefs, food service workers, bartenders, floor staff, and anyone else connected to our vast industry have the opportunity to share their thoughts and speak their minds on any pertinent topic. 
You know, back in 2018, I wrote a post in which, I pointed a long, spindly finger directly at former FBI Director James Comey as the man behind the curtain pulling the strings, you know, the master puppeteer.  Now, it seems as though I have been vindicated for my beliefs because we now have this censorious, holier-than-thou POS saying that ‘perhaps he did overdo’ the scam into Trump-Russia collusion in that he based the sham investigation into Trump using bogus documents.   
Here is what I said in my post, dated Sunday, July 15, 2018:
“While the actions of Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and numerous others are contemptible, the BIG DOG in this battle was the apparent ‘kingmaker,’ fired FBI Director James Comey.  In my view, Mr. Comey is the man who played both sides of the aisle, he first conducted the investigation into Hillary Clinton and then he sent subordinates into clandestine battle with the Trump campaign.”  (Grinikeodopuloposlus, 15-July-2018)
We know that Comey was doing the bidding of the higher-ups, most likely that of President Barack Obama run through the filter of then-Attorney-General Loretta Lynch, giving the 44th president the benefit of plausible deniability which could be true because I believe- like millions of other people- that President Obama surrounded himself with a coven of like-minded political thinkers. 
I suspect that President Obama- like Adolf Hitler[i]- put his name to very few documents in his war against conservatives and renegade Democrats so nothing could be traced back to him.  We know that Lois Lerner and John Koskinen required no oversight to go about targeting enemies of the regime, they just knew in their hearts whom to automatically target and set out to deny Tea Party groups and others of their ilk the benefit of tax-exempt status. 
We know, too, that the prior attorney-general of the United States- Eric Holder- boldly proclaimed his willingness to be Obama’s ‘wingman’ in doing whatever had to be done just as he now has popped up from his burrow and is continuing to do the ‘dirty work’ of the previous administration by attacking current AG Bill Barr. 
I do believe that Comey went rogue by usurping AG Lynch’s job when he went out in the summer of 2016 and laid out the case against Hillary Clinton and then blew it all to hell when he said that ‘no reasonable prosecutor would charge Mrs. Clinton for having been reckless and negligent in her handling of confidential information.’  What? You or I would be in prison yet there she is, being cleared by the FBI director on live TV.
At the time, I wrote about what I thought and what I thought was this: Comey was demonstrating publicly that he could either make or break Mrs. Clinton (no one ever thought Trump was going to win) in order to force her to agree to whatever it was that he sought: become the new attorney-general (and able to hire his fellow political hacks[ii]) in her administration or continue as the FBI chief for another term once his was up?  We most likely will never know. 
Then, ten days out from the November 2016 Election, Comey appeared before the American people and reopened the case into Hillary’s wrongdoings- a week out from the flipping election, people- because NEW information had come the FBI’s way that was discovered on the laptop that Hillary aide Huma Abedin shared with her pervert husband, disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner. 
The question around here and across the nation was WHY would Comey do something as egregious as this?  The answer- at least to members of the AICP-END Blogs- was because Hillary must have balked at whatever terms she agreed to with Director Comey. 
In going against the assumed agreement, Comey had no choice other than to come out and demonstrate the magnitude of his power in a very obscene and public way.  In so doing, he eclipsed the dirty deeds of founding FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover who did his dirty work from behind the scenes by spying and blackmailing those whom he felt needed whatever manner of discipline he felt they required to get them straight.  Presidents feared the man and no one breathed a sigh of relief until the scumbag passed.
Here is something else I said in the post from July 2018:
“I do believe that Mr. Comey—for whatever reason or reasons still unknown—cost her the election, one everyone believed was hers to win or hers to lose.  The reopening of the ‘investigation’ has caused some of my colleagues here to believe that he made some sort of behind-the-scenes demands on Mrs. Clinton and that she must have refused or did not commit, which lead him to destroy her hopes 10 days before Election Day.”  (Grinikeodopuloposlus, 15-July-2018)
People can believe what they wish to believe but I think Comey- even after his bold claims of vindication in the Justice Department’s inspector general report- is beginning to feel the heat bearing down upon him as why come out and admit to making ‘mistakes’ in this farce they call an investigation into Trump-Russia ‘collusion?’
I think the scumbag is aware that he could be in as much trouble as his buddies Andy McCabe, Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr, and some of the other slimeballs involved in this mess are.
What is clear, however, is that Trump is smelling like a rose and will beat whatever the Democrats throw at him.  I think many will want to be on HIS side when retribution comes down atop the coup-plotters. 
See you tomorrow.

[i] I am not saying that Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler are cut from the same cloth; no, what I am saying is that Hitler very seldom ever put his name to any document thus giving him plausible deniability on any of the crimes committed by the Third Reich.  Likewise, I am sure that President Obama did not put his name to any documents regarding how he wanted to treat his political enemies.  His desires were filtered through the mouthpieces of very few close subordinates who though the same way as he did.  Will this give him ‘distance’ if the shit hits the fan?  Not sure but I hope to see.
[ii] We are talking about scum such as Andrew Weismann, Robert S. Mueller III, Rod J. Rosenstein, and the rest of the so-called ‘law enforcement’ scum that seems to have fed off the Obama administration.
[iii] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.
[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Steely Dan at some point within the next 10-15 years.  Please stay with us.
[v] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.
[vi] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of R.E.M. but look forward to doing so as they are awesome.
[vii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.
[viii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.
[ix] We hope at some point in the next 10-15 years to share the music of Hall and Oates, one of the 1970s biggest rock acts.
[x] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.
[xi] We look forward to sharing the music of KISS by at least 2035.  We hope you will be with us at that time.
[xii] If we ever arrive at doing the music of Cat Stevens, it will be because we have done everyone else and are beginning to do country and folk music.  Please, stick around to see.
