Is the McCabe Firing a Harbinger of Ill Times to Come for the Corrupt?

As the subject of a probable criminal probe, McCabe has more problems than losing his pension.

    I am encouraged, with the firing of Andrew McCabe of the FBI so he will lose his pension, that this new Justice Department will finally rout all the incredible corruption out of the DOJ and FBI, which was allowed to exist under Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch and Jim Comey.

    What is especially revealing is the "hit-dog-yelps-the-loudest" manifestation of people like Jim Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Eric Holder, etc. whining in unison, suggesting that this corruption has a deep history, and as this dirty cop/lawyer conundrum unravels, we may finally know how high up this corruption goes within the corrupt, lawless Obama administration.

    Remember, the FBI did not indict anyone in the IRS for their Political Targeting /Obstruction of Justice/ Cover-up scandal, even though they admitted all in a civil court, and public monies were paid to those damaged.

    Balance that against General Mike Flynn ruined for miss-remembering all the details of his discussions with the Russian ambassador during the transition period after President Trump is duly elected, and we have massive corruption with that whole equal application of the law as a constitutional right that was so absent during the lawless Hussein Obama years.

    I rightly reckon that folks will not get this measure type of short commentary from The Fake News. That could be why we still get core Democrat talking points like: "Donald Trump punishing people for investigating him is like Hitler all over again." and "Trump has people believing that Russia is good and the FBI is bad."

    The Liberal /Socialist talking point about Trump and his team, which they incredibly believe: "Russia is good and the FBI is bad" is a total lie, and belies the abject hypocrisy, and egregious stupidity of core Democrats and their Fake News. Additionally, this not about Trump; he had just won the election, which, if he had lost it would have meant that Lying Hillary Clinton would have kept all this now revealed corruption covered up.

    Furthermore, Liberals /Socialists need to stop all this Hitler talk. It suggest a grand level of historical ignorance, and greatly deters core Democrats from ever gaining the necessity of intellectual respectability, which they have generously ceded in the public's forum on this very public stage.

Yes, they can all be patriots. First, they must act like patriots. Everyone is not a patriot, and the real patriots know who the patriots are. But, Liberals can be patriots, as long as they put their nation, their communities first above party. Most elected Republicans do that; that is why they are so hard to control.

Now, here is the big exception. If one has served in the military in a war/ combat zone, they can hate America, and short of any act of real discernible, destructive treason, they will always be a patriot, at least to me.

Those that have served in war/ combat zone situations and love America; they are what I would term the super patriot. I pray that they will be among our future leaders; fine examples of such are General John Kelly and General Jim Mattis.

I probably should have included the pay off of the sermon but I was striving for brevity. Jesus had faith that his father would provide for all his needs and therefore we should not put our trust for salvation in man or money but in God. He was perhaps not advocating putting thieves as the treasurer but demonstrating that his faith transcended both man and money.

As a layman I probably should stay away from preaching, but our resident Pastor has left the stage.

I kept contemporaneous notes of our pastor's sermons. When he left Candler Park (2003), I subscribed to his written sermon blogs. Here is a bit more about John Ballenger

I guess there is some allegorical value to allocating money duties to dishonest men, but for the life of me, I can't fathom it. It probably is just the way it has always been.

While it may sound blasphemous I remember a sermon from my favorite pastor at Candler Park Baptist. Here is the short version:

The reason Jesus had a money bag man was so he knew who to watch. He put a thief (Judas) in charge of the money because he was putting his money where his mouth was. But in knowingly giving dishonest Judas the moneybag, Jesus specifically modeled for us where not to put our trust.

I am sure this was not an original sermon by the pastor but like many others it struck me as right on point about putting too much trust in others regardless of their profession or declarations and assertions.

Always follow the money with politicians. A minimum of 60% of all politicians /bureaucrats can always be tempted if the money is right, and they believe they can get away with it.

The core Democrats believed that L. Hillary would be elected, and she is known to be corrupt enough to easily allow the Obama corruption to continue.

My tendency (some call it an obsession) is to always follow the money and look at the details. A quick unverified check would indicate that McCabe's punishment would be somewhere in the neighborhood of $2,000,000 over the rest of his life. In keeping with the going market for tell all books (Look for Comey's new book) I doubt that Andrew McCabe will be hurting from a finical standpoint. I am sure someone will be willing to pay him a healthy book advance to cove his short fall in pension income. He might even be able to self finance his wife's next run for office.

"On Sunday, McCabe will be 50 years old (qualifying him for an FBI pension) and will have served 21 years with the FBI.
So, his annual pension is $56,000.
1st 20 years
1.7% x 20 = 34%
34% x $160,000 = $54, 400
21st year
1% x $160,000 = $1,600
All 21 years
$54,400 + $1,600 = $56,000
With an average life expectancy of, say, 85 … McCabe’s aggregate expected pension will be almost $2 million."
