Hillary Clinton confidant was interviewed by FBI in connection to the salacious dossier

A close friend, advisor and confidant of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was allegedly interviewed by the FBI in connection with the controversial dossier that was used ‘in part’ as evidence by the bureau to obtain a warrant to investigate members of President Trump’s campaign team, according to several sources who spoke to this reporter.

 

Sidney Blumenthal, a former journalist and a close friend of Clinton, was  interviewed by the FBI in 2016 regarding the dossier that alleged Trump colluded with Russia, the sources stated. Department of Justice officials, however, declined to comment on Blumenthal or the dossier.

 

FBI officials declined to comment.

 

Blumenthal did not return a phone call seeking comment.

 

Blumenthal worked as a White House aide for Bill Clinton, and later worked with the Clinton Foundation after being denied a role by Obama Administration officials with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to reports.  According to Politico he was being paid $10,000 a month by the Clinton Foundation.

 

In 2015, emails released by the State Department showed the extensive and ongoing working relationship between Clinton and Blumenthal. The emails revealed that then Secretary of State Clinton would seek Blumenthal’s advice on foreign policy issues and his role appeared to be more of an advisor than friend, according to the emails.  Blumenthal regularly sent Hillary Clinton “vaguely sourced” “intelligence cable style” briefings while she was Secretary of State.

 

Earlier this month, members of the House Intelligence Committee went to the Justice Department to review the FBI and DOJ documents requested last August by Chairman Devin Nunes, as reported earlier.

 

The Washington Post revealed in October that the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign the research firm Fusion GPS for the dossier that was put together by former British spy Christopher Steele.

 

In April, CNN reported that the dossier was used to monitor communications of Carter Page, who volunteered as a national security advisor with the Trump campaign for a short period of time. But by December, another story by the New York Times suggested that the inquiry into the Trump campaign and its alleged ties to Russia began with George Papadopoulos,  a former foreign policy advisor to Trump campaign.

 

After the 2016 presidential election, Blumenthal told Dutch TV Nieuwsuur that Clinton’s loss to Trump “was the result of a cabal of right-wing agents of the FBI in the New York office attached to Rudy Giuliani, who was a member of Trump’s campaign.”

 

“I think it’s not unfair to call it a coup,” said Blumenthal.

 

“A coup, even?” the reporter said.

 

Blumenthal added, “yeah, a coup d’etat.”

Sidney Blumenthal, Clinton confidant and insider, made a visit to the Netherlands. Blumenthal was interviewed by NOS Nieuwsuur, a Dutch Evening News Magazine. The fatal impact on the elections of the DNC, Hillary Clinton and Podesta email publications by WikiLeaks, which were never contested by exposed parties, was of course never mentioned.

 

(Blog Editor: When Blumenthal says Trump will undo everything that Obama accomplished, you should laugh hysterically. Obama has ruined America more than any Left-Wing President – EVER!]

Last November, Hillary Clinton infamously admitted on “The Daily Show” with Trevor Noah that her campaign paid for the discredited document.

Commenting on Carter’s story, Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton called Blumenthal a Clinton Foundation “hatchet man.”

 

 

 

The Steele dossier saga may take yet another interesting turn tomorrow, as the House Intelligence Committee readies a vote to release the transcriptions of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s interview.

 

“If vote to release, will add to record already released by Senate Judiciary. The more, the better,” tweeted York.

 

 

 

Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the discredited Steele dossier, is still investigating alleged ties between President Trump and Russia, reported Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter this week.

The Great Negotiator


Justin Smith and many Conservatives looking at President Trump’s willingness to negotiate on allowing illegal aliens to remain in America is viewed as a betrayal of one his campaign promises.

 

In my humble opinion some kind of give and take is necessary to end legislative gridlock. So, if illegals are proven working individuals that pay taxes, I don’t have a problem with amnesty. HOWEVER, if illegal aliens are living on taxpayer social programs, those illegal aliens need to receive the boot.

 

ALSO, if the Dems will not negotiate on effective border control – e.g. A WALL – Then blame the Dems and give all illegal aliens the boot. If illegal aliens cry racism, they should direct their anger toward recalcitrant Dems.

 

Thus, I am not totally on board with Justin, but in some ways, I am willing to be harsher with the blame falling squarely on the Dems.

The Great Negotiator

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/13/2018 4:28 PM

 

The negotiations on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), opened under a false sense of urgency by President Trump, the “stable genius” and “great negotiator”, and sixteen senators and seven House members, on Tuesday January 9, 2018 in an ineffectual move to protect 800,000 DACA recipients from potential deportation, once DACA ends on March 5th. These negotiations represent the lowest moment of the Trump presidency, nothing more and nothing less than another amnesty for illegal aliens and the Democrats’ first step towards a full amnesty for nearly forty million illegal aliens (government stats 11 to 12 million), a betrayal of America.

 

If the proposed Dream Act of 2017, the replacement bill of choice, introduced by Senators Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is any indication of the legislative “solution”, America will be forced to give 3.3 million illegal aliens a conditional lawful permanent resident status. Roughly 1.8 million would certainly become naturalized citizens over the next decade, if not sooner, with voting rights.

 

What happened to President Trump’s 2016 campaign promise to deport all illegal aliens?

 

The switch came after his advisors told him that this DACA amnesty is popular with both Democrats and liberal Republicans. He probably also noted left-leaning polls, like in Politico, that show 54 percent of Americans want to give the “Dreamers” a path to citizenship.

 

I stated in October 2015, that “Trump’s values shift like the changing of one’s underwear from day to day, depending on his personal agenda and who had his ear at the moment”. Ann Coulter, a conservative journalist, seemed to concur, as she recently stated, “The president cares only about his press, has no grasp of details of policy, and simply agrees with the last person to speak.”

 

Under no illusions, one might wish to see our leaders vote to deport all illegal aliens, but the reality of the matter suggests some form of amnesty will be passed eventually, unless there is a loud and massive opposition immediately voiced. While House Republicans are forcefully pushing President Trump’s demands on the wall and heightened security, along with the addition of thousands of federal immigration enforcement officers and judges and E-Verify, through the Goodlatte-McCaul bill, the Senate is prepared to give amnesty in exchange for nothing.

 

The Goodlatte-McCaul bill also ends chain migration and the diversity visa lottery, which allowed the last two Islamic terrorists into the country and the attacks on New York City. It allows the Justice Department to withhold grants from sanctuary cities too.

 

It should also be noted, that after the Department of Homeland Security detained a DACA recipient with gang ties, early in 2017, it acknowledged revoking the DACA status of over 1500 recipients, due to criminal conviction or gang affiliation. How many other criminals have evaded the department’s scrutiny?

 

To his credit, President Trump stated: “It has to be a bill where we’re able to secure our border. Drugs are pouring into our country at a record pace. A lot of people coming in that we can’t have.”

 

Congress could accomplish the same things, without granting a blanket amnesty, if they really wanted to do so, couldn’t they? But the liberals of both parties aren’t working for America, are they?

 

Curiously, the Great Negotiator’s negotiating skills are less than impressive, given Republicans hold the House, the Senate and the presidency. It is the Democrats, not the president, who are driving a hard bargain.

 

The Dreamers have no right to be here in the first place, since they or their parents broke U.S. law, and they deserve that right even less, when they display 1794 maps of Mexico and wave the Mexican flag in our streets. They have no say over anything America chooses to grant them; and yet, these Dreamers beseech our Congress for America’s solicitude and benevolent care, while standing on the steps of our state houses and at the Capital in D.C. and demand that any DACA replacement legislation be a “clean” bill.

 

During the meeting, when Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked President Trump if he would “be agreeable” to a “clean” bill, it was obvious that he didn’t understand that meant leaving out his demands, like more border security and the wall, because he replied: “Yeah … I would like to do that. Go ahead. I think a lot of people would like to see that, but I think we have to do DACA first.”

 

Representative Kevin McCarthy, a liberal Republican, interceded, fortunately. He clarified for the President that he was, in fact, acquiescing to an amnesty bill absent any border security provisions.

 

Later, flanked by Senator Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD), President Trump said: “We’ll do DACA and we can certainly start comprehensive immigration reform the following afternoon. Okay? We’ll take an hour off and then we’ll start.” Whether the president understood it or not, “comprehensive immigration reform” stands for amnesty.

 

To be clear, Congress has no moral or legal obligation or responsibility to grant amnesty to anyone who violated our immigration laws or knowingly put their children in an awful legal predicament. Let the March 5th deadline pass, let deportations proceed, and let the Dreamers sort it out, case by case, in immigration court, like they should have done over all these years.

 

Complicating negotiations further is a decision by a liberal activist judge in San Francisco on Tuesday evening, January 9th, that temporarily banned the Trump administration from ending DACA. Until Congress takes immigration policy matters out of the Courts’ jurisdiction, invoking that right under Article III of the Constitution, our borders will never be fully secured and illegals will continue to arrive at our borders en masse.

 

This DACA bill and any general amnesty for the total millions of other illegal aliens helps and benefits the illegal alien population and the Democratic Party only. Within a year of being granted residency or a path to citizenship, activist judges will grant full citizenship, and the bulk of these illegals will expand the Democratic voter base, setting aside all of Trump’s “wins” and border security gains; and Democratic Socialists will get to take permanent control of U.S. elections, laws and governments, for decades to come.

 

A recently leaked memo from the Center For American Progress reads, in part: “The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also  a critical component to the Democratic Party’s electoral success … “.

 

An attempt to destroy our borders forever more is still underway as “elite” liberals from both parties, backed by U.S. and global billionaires, seek to force American citizens towards a regional and then global governance. They present America a false solution, in these DACA proposals, on the pretext it serves America’s interests and does not harm our society at large, for their own self-interest, and these members of Congress, who are supposed to represent Americans, not illegal aliens, are eroding and undermining the sanctity of the entire legal system and, by extension, our Republic.

DEEP STATE – SHADOW GOVERNMENT REVEALED: SENIOR EXECUTIVE SERVICE


Intro to ‘DEEP STATE – SHADOW GOVERNMENT REVEALED: SENIOR EXECUTIVE SERVICE’

John R. Houk, Editor

1/5/18

 

One my Facebook buddies pointed to a 40-minute video entitled, “Obamas SES Army Found”. I will post the video at the end of an article that is about the tentacles of power inherent in the government operated Senior Executive Service or SES for short.

 

The short and inadequate form of the video/article theme on the SES is that former President Obama appointed a majority of the current SES staff with the purpose of perpetuating a Crooked Hillary Leftist agenda or to gut a Trump Administration with subversive failure. Of course, Crooked Hillary lost so this SES Deep State is activating plan B against President Trump.

 

The article is on American Intelligence Media. The AIM assertions appear plausible while reading. This got my attention.

 

The thing is the SES purpose on its website don’t line up with some of the AIM assertions. AND AIM acquiesces the differences in their assertions and the official SES line.

 

Here is the SES official line from their government website with some brief insertions by me:

 

Senior Executive Service

OVERVIEW & HISTORY

 

Overview

 

The SES includes most managerial, supervisory, and policy positions classified above General Schedule (GS) grade 15 or equivalent positions in the Executive Branch of the Federal Government.

 

These positions are excluded:

 

  1. positions requiring appointment by the President with Senate confirmation;

 

  1. legislative and judicial branch positions;

 

  1. positions in law enforcement and intelligence gathering agencies, in the Foreign Service, and in other agencies excluded by statute or by the President.

 

Administrative law judges, members of boards of contract appeal, and positions in independent Government corporations (e.g., Tennessee Valley Authority) and in certain financial regulatory agencies also are excluded.

 

There are two types of positions and four types of appointments in the SES:

 

Career Reserved positions are those which, as defined in law, are “to ensure impartiality, or public’s confidence of impartiality of government.” These positions can only be filled by career appointees.

 

General positions may be filled by any type of SES appointee — career, noncareer, limited term or limited emergency.

 

Career appointments may be to a General or Career Reserved position; rights of the individual are the same in either case. Incumbents are selected by agency merit staffing process and must have their executive qualifications approved by a Qualifications Review Board (QRB) convened by OPM. [Blog Editor: OPM is the acronym for Office of Personnel Management: The Office of Personnel Management manages the civil service of the federal government, coordinates recruiting of new government employees, and manages their health insurance and retirement benefits programs. They also provide resources for locating student jobs, summer jobs, scholarships, and internships.]

 

Noncareer appointments are approved by OPM on a case-by-case basis and the appointment authority reverts to OPM when the noncareer appointee leaves the position. Appointments may be made only to General positions and cannot exceed 25% of the agency’s SES position allocation. Governmentwide, only 10% of SES positions may be filled by noncareer appointees.

 

A Limited Term appointment may be made for up to 3 years, is nonrenewable and must be to an SES General position which will expire because of the nature of the work (e.g., a special project).

 

A Limited Emergency appointment is also a nonrenewable appointment, may be for up to 18 months, and must be to an SES General position established to meet a bona-fide, unanticipated, urgent need.

 

The total number of limited appointments may not exceed 5% of SES positions allocated Governmentwide. Each agency has a pool equal to 3% of its allocation for making limited appointments of career or career-type employees from outside the SES. OPM must approve use of this type of appointment authority in other cases.

 

A position meets the SES functional criteria if its incumbent engages in any of the following activities:

 

  • directs the work of an organizational unit;

 

  • is held accountable for the success of one or more specific programs or projects;

 

  • monitors progress toward organizational goals and periodically evaluates and makes appropriate adjustments to such goals;

 

  • supervises the work of employees (other than personal assistants); or

 

  • otherwise exercises important policy-making, policy-determining, or other executive functions.

 

Now for an unofficial description of SES via Wikipedia:

 

The Senior Executive Service (SES) is a position classification in the civil service of the United States federal government, somewhat analogous to general officer or flag officer ranks in the U.S. Armed Forces. It was created in 1979 by Kristine Marcy when the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 went into effect under President Jimmy Carter.

 

READ THE REST (Senior Executive Service (United States); Wikipedia; last edited on 12/24/17)

 

AIM extrapolates its assertions without direct sourcing but links to other government websites where questions arise pertaining SES authority. I gotta tell ya, the AIM educated guessing is very compelling.

DEEP STATE – SHADOW GOVERNMENT REVEALED: SENIOR EXECUTIVE SERVICE

 

By Anonymous Patriots

JANUARY 3, 2018 9:56 PM 

American Intelligence Media

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HEAR BETSY AND THOMAS DISCUSS THIS TOPIC, PLEASE LISTEN HERE: OBAMA’S SES ARMY FOUND

 

Most people know that a new president gets to name over 4,000 political appointees when they are elected. This political cronyism is partisan politics and fills our bloated government with unqualified employees.

 

Some think that these are the people that comprise the Deep State.

 

But the Deep State is much deeper than that.

 

There is a much more sinister system in place that controls Washington D. C.’s bureaucracies through an actual, organized shadow government called the Deep State.

 

It is the heart of the swamp.

 

And in this American Intelligence Media citizen intelligence report, we are going to show you exactly who they are and how we can remove them.

 

The Washington D. C. Deep State is a group of 8,156 appointed mangers in 75 federal agencies that control the executive bureaucracy and tell new political appointees what they can and cannot do. Yes, that’s right, the Deep State is an official government program, well-organized, comprehensive, and “in charge.”

 

OUT OF THE 8,156 MEMBERS WHO MAKE UP THIS DEEP STATE OF ENSCONCED BUREAUCRATS, OVER 7,000 WERE APPOINTED BY OBAMA.

 

These the are the “Obama Holdouts” that still control the executive branch of government a full year after Trump has come to office. Obama expanded the existing program of Deep State managers and appointed over 7,000 of the 8,156 bosses who are called the Senior Executive Service.

 

Flag — U.S. Senior Executive Service

 

Some call it the “Shadow Government”, and it is true that this federal cabal works in the shadows.

 

Have you ever heard of such a group?

 

Some call it Obama’s Army.

 

Let’s review what we know about the power of “political appointees” who hold important leadership and policymaking positions.

 

There are four basic types of appointments:

 

  • Presidential Appointments with Senate Confirmation: There are 1,212 senior leaders, including the Cabinet secretaries and their deputies, the heads of most independent agencies and ambassadors, who must be confirmed by the Senate.

 

  • Presidential Appointments without Senate Confirmation: There are 353 positions which make up much of the White House staff, although they are also scattered throughout many of the smaller federal agencies.

 

  • Non-career Senior Executive Service: Members of the Senior Executive Service (SES) work in key positions just below the top presidential appointees, bridging the gap between the political leaders and the civil service throughout the federal government.

 

  • Schedule C Appointments: There are 1,403 Schedule C appointees who serve in a confidential or policy role. They range from schedulers and confidential assistants to policy experts.

 

The Senior Executive Service (SES) in 2016 had 8,156 members who were appointees. Obama appointed over 7,000 of them to these key positions. Most of these appointees do not arise from inside the respective agencies through a merit system and often are not qualified.

 

It is little known that there are many more SES appointees than any other type of political appointment. The “key bosses” in the federal government’s SES program are not only unqualified cronies, but they are also paid more than the highest government rate of G-15. They can even get bonuses, and each agency can set the salary of each SES member, which has no top range.

 

THE DEEP STATE – SHADOW GOVERNMENT IS A RECOGNIZED BUREAUCRATIC FUNCTION THAT PAYS THE BEST SALARIES IN FEDERAL WORK.

 

The Senior Executive Service plays a critical role in every presidential transition, supporting and educating political appointees about how government works, and often temporarily serving in top agency jobs during the lengthy appointee confirmation and onboarding process. The article below describes the transition function of the SES.

 

Nearly 70% of SES Are About to Experience Their First Presidential Transition as Executives

 

SES Logo 2

 

From the way the State’s Senior Executive Service describes itself on its website and other publications and articles, you wouldn’t know that it is describing a shadow government, unless you looked carefully at what was actually being said and done.

 

The SES consists of men and women, noncareer and career officials, charged with leading the continuing transformation of government. SES officials are neither excepted nor competitive service appointments. SES appointees typically support officials with the implementation of current administration policies.

 

IN REALITY, THEY ARE TODAY ENTRENCHED BUREAUCRATIC PERSONNEL WHO DO THE BIDDING OF THE OBAMA-CLINTON REGIME AND THEIR GLOBALIST MASTERS. 

 

The SES was established by the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 as an Executive Branch personnel system. SES members serve in key positions, just below the top Presidential appointees, and are the major link between senior officials and the rest of the Federal workforce. The two types of SES positions are General, which can be filled by any type of appointment, and Career Reserved, which can be filled only by a career appointment.

 

The following types of appointments may be made in the SES:

 

  • Noncareer Appointmentsare to a General SES position that, generally, is of a top policy determining character, who shares with Presidential appointees the advocacy of current administration policies. They can be made without regard to competitive requirements. Agencies may also set the pay level of the appointee.

 

  • Career Appointments have no time limitation and provide certain job protections and benefits not conferred by non-career and limited appointments.

 

  • Limited Term Appointments are nonrenewable appointments, for a term of three years or less.

 

  • Limited Emergency Appointments are nonrenewable appointments, not to exceed 18 months, to a General SES position established to meet a bona fide, unanticipated, urgent need.

 

The Senior Executive Service covers most managerial, supervisory, and policy positions in the Executive Branch above grade GS-15, except those that require Senate confirmation. The SES is a system in which salary and career status are personal rather than dependent on the position occupied. There are two main types of SES positions: career-reserved (which must be filled by career appointees) and general (which may be filled by career or non-career appointees, or by limited-term or limited emergency appointees).

 

There were 8,156 SES members in 2016.  To see the evidence for those facts you can access the government’s official 2016 SES Report at the following site:

 

2016 Senior Executive Service Report

Learn About Senior Executive Service (SES)

 

On page three of the report below, you can see for yourself that the 2016 Senior Executive Services Report lists that there were 8,156 SES members in 75 federal agencies. These “bosses” can’t really be fired because they are in charge. This is a good deal for SES members who are appointed as the all-knowing and all-powerful bosses of agencies they might not have even known existed before they were put in charge of them. And it was a brilliant play for Obama to have left this corruptcracy in place for Hillary’s final overthrow of America, but now which can thwart the attempts of the Trump administration to get anything done.

 

SES System

 

Don’t be fooled by the lie that SES doesn’t exist in the FBI, DOJ, and State Department. There are “look-alike” senior management systems inside of some federal agencies that fill the exact same purposes and those systems are directly connected to SES. Even the Department of Defense has these Deep State appointees, though they officially claim they do not. You can see the proof that demonstrates their lies below:

 

2016 Senior Executive Service Report

 

Even though these SES key managerial positions are paid the best, you can hardly find a single SES member’s name on any list, anywhere. That’s why they call it the DEEP State. SES is a system of controlling power through secrecy, and acting with complete impunity – and getting a big salary to boot.

 

The only people’s names you can find associated with these Deep State operatives is through the SES review boards that determine each year what “BONUS” these already over-paid SES bosses will receive. Yes, you heard it right – bonuses, like those Wall Street bankers and brokers who got bonuses after crashing the stock market. Look as you will, you can only find a list of names of the people who give these shadow government managers their bonuses.

 

 

Dept. of Air Force – SES seal

 

We provide at the link below, the government’s own website that lists the members of one particular Review Board. This SES Review Board is for the Department of Justice. Oops, if you read the prior attachments, you might have noticed that the government clearly states it is “forbidden” to have a SES system in the Department of Justice. Obviously, by the evidence below, you can see that there are SES members in the Department of Justice.

 

Don’t worry, just another Deep State lie to cover up the names of the SES shadow government. But we do have a list of the people who give raises to the SES members in the Department of Justic. Raises for these SES members who don’t exist but are the bosses.

SES Positions That Were Career Reserved During CY 2016

 

It might seem easy to criticize the Deep State from an armchair geo-political perch, but even Main Stream Media and government agencies have noticed the SES and found fault with its performance and Obama’s huge push to make it work at any cost. In an article entitled, Can the Government Fix Its Corps of Managers? The Senior Executive Service isn’t operating as it was designed to do, from The Atlantic in January of 2016, an objective assessment finds the SES program to be lacking in many ways.

 

Forty years ago, Congress set out to fix the government’s broken bureaucracy. It worried that the political appointees who head federal agencies didn’t have solid relationships with the civil servants below them. So, it established a new corps of government workers, called the Senior Executive Service, to be the executive branch’s expert managers, linking appointees to the rank-and-file. But today, a new report finds, the corps isn’t operating the way it’s supposed to be. And officials—from the Obama administration, to members of Congress, to the managers themselves—agree that they still haven’t perfected the art of running the federal government.

 

Dept. of the Army – SES

 

This emblem is worn by employees of SES so that they can identify one another by their team “flag”. Now you know who they are, too. Going forward we can spot the members of Obama’s Army.

 

When the SES was created in 1978, Congress envisioned it as an “agile corps of generalists” who would “move about the government much in the way that military officers or foreign-service officers move through the military or the diplomatic corps,” said Jim Read, the director of policy and evaluation at the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, which produced the December report. They would bridge divisions within agencies and ensure continuity in operations across administrations, but first and foremost, they would be top-flight managers.

 

The SES, though, has drifted away from its original mission: The “agile corps” is not full of many generalists at all, and the senior executives receive little training to hone their management skills.

 

SES Patch on a Shirt

 

We need to get these unelected, unaccountable, agenda-thwarting Obama appointees out of our government if we are going to fully drain the swamp

 

Congress hasn’t been blind to the SES’s deficiencies, either. As a 2012 Congressional Research Service report details, reformers have had their eye on the SES for years. The House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, for example, has gone after problems at the SES level at the VA. The government has been trying to reform the civil-service workforce for as long as it has existed. Forty years after its creation, many of the problems the SES was intended to solve persist.

 

The Deep State is deeper and wider than most people know, and instead of being hidden and secret it seems to be public and filled with well-paid Obama hold-overs. Unqualified, political appointees control the new Presidential appointees and the standard bureaucracy below them.

 

It is hard to believe, and may leave a person outraged, witnessing the audacity of career government employees and the corruption of the systems politicians have put in place. Deep State cronyism built upon graft and obfuscation fills the Senior Executive Service.

 

There is no need at all to have this Deep State shadow government, and these political, over-paid management positions should be filled by highly qualified staff through a comprehensive merit system, not appointed by a partisan president.

 

It is time to pull the plug on the Deep State’s mechanism that creates governmental programs and agencies that make no sense at all, unless these machinations are an attempt to overthrow the government that is supposed to work for We the People.

 

WE NEED TO TAKE MEASURES TO END THE SENIOR EXECUTIVE SERVICE AND TOPPLE THE DEEP STATE SHADOW GOVERNMENT THAT HAS 8,156 OPERATIVES IN 75 FEDERAL AGENCIES, ALL WORKING FOR POLITICAL GOALS OF BARACK OBAMA AND HIS GLOBALIST MASTERS.

 

Feel free to share this meme below to your network of truth seekers. Let’s shine a bright light on this shadow government corruption.

2 Perspectives of Ongoing Deep State Coup


John R. Houk, Editor

1/2/18

 

It is looking more and more Dem conspirators in the FBI and DOJ tried to fix the November 2016 election to Crooked Hillary’s favor. AND barring the failure of a Crooked Hillary election, then the conspiracy appeared intending to take out President Trump with fake evidence.

 

Here are two perspectives on Deep State intentions that essentially overthrows the U.S. Constitution with behind the scenes criminal-political coup d’état behavior.

DEEP STATE DOSSIER DISINFORMATION

Establishment media ignore the real sources of the Russia investigation.

 

By Lloyd Billingsley

January 2, 2018

FrontPageMag.com

 

Mueller Deep State

 

George Papadopoulos was the “improbable match that set off a blaze that has consumed the first year of the Trump administration.” Like the Trump campaign itself, advisor Papadopoulos “proved to be a tantalizing target for a Russian influence operation.”

 

Thus opens a 2500-plus-word December 30 New York Times piece headlined “How the Russia Inquiry Began: A Campaign Aide, Drinks and Talk of Political Dirt,” by Sharon LaFraniere, Mark Mazetti and Matt Apuzzo, with reporting by Adam Goldman, Eileen Sullivan and Matthew Rosenberg. The multiple authorship betokens serious investigation but this piece shapes up as dezinformatsiya and the Times gives it away in the early going.

 

“It was not, as Mr. Trump and other politicians have alleged, a dossier compiled by a former British spy hired by a rival campaign,” that started the investigation, and there is some truth to that. The dossier, one of the dirtiest tricks political tricks in US history, was only part of a plan revealed by FBI counterintelligence boss Peter Strzok in the office of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe. As a Strzok email explained: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40. . .”

 

Like FBI boss James Comey, Strzok was a partisan of Hillary Clinton, the likely reason he got the job of spearheading the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. It was Strzok who changed “gross negligence” to “extremely careless,” freeing the Democrat from the prospect of criminal charges. As David Horowitz said, it was the greatest political fix in American history.

 

Donald Trump went on to win the White House but for Democrat “progressives,” that meant that Trump and Putin must have teamed up to steal the election from Hillary. That is the real source of the Russia investigation, sanctified in December 2016 by Senators Chuck Schumer, John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Jack Reed. None was a fan of Trump and it recently emerged that McCain associate David Kramer, formerly with the State Department, met with dossier co-author Christopher Steele. The New York Times piece fails to mention Mr. Kramer and remains reluctant to follow the money, supposedly the first rule of investigative reporting.

 

The Clintons are not exactly short on cash and FBI deputy director “Andy” McCabe got some $500,000 from the Clintons for his wife’s political campaign. The establishment media are not curious whether Peter Strzok got a piece of the action, and if so how much. The Clinton’s faithful Odd Job would not be the first FBI man to grab the gold from under the table.

 

The FBI’s Robert Hanssen gave thousands of pages of classified material to the KGB and its Russian successor agency the SVR.  In return, the Russians gave him $600,000 in cash and diamonds, plus another $800,000 in a Russian bank. The FBI’s Richard Miller engaged in an affair with Svetlana Ogorodnikova and gave the Russian an FBI counterintelligence manual in exchange for sexual favors, $15,000 in cash and $50,000 in gold. FBI agent Earl Pitts gave KGB agent Aleksandr Karpov classified information and unmasked an FBI agent working in counterintelligence. The KGB and its Russian SVR successor paid Pitts $224,000.

 

Strzok works counterintelligence but on his watch Pakistani-born Iman Awan enjoyed access to the computers of the House Intelligence Committee and the Democrats’ favorite IT man performed his IT work from Pakistan for several months a year. If Peter Strzok knew about Awan’s illicit data-mining operation it seems clear he did nothing to stop it. On the other hand, POTUS 44 had commanded the FBI to look the other way when Muslims were involved, and the Bureau, which wields a budget approaching $9 billion, duly followed orders.

 

In the office of Andy McCabe, Peter Strzok discussed the “insurance policy” with his consensual flame Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and Clinton devotee. When that emerged, new FBI boss Christopher Wray did not fire Strzok and take his gun and badge. Instead Wray stashed Strzok in human resources, where he will still command access to FBI records.

 

After all this, and a lot more, the New York Times opts to point the finger at George Papadopoulos. The establishment media prefer to claim that the FBI’s Clinton fan club and the bogus dossier had nothing to do with the Russia investigation.

 

Did the FBI perchance deploy the dossier to secure a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign? Russophile Nellie Ohr, wife of demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr, duly hired on at Fusion GPS. What was Nellie’s role in the dossier?  Who paid for the dossier? Congress has been trying to get answers but the FBI has been stonewalling. What are they trying to hide?

 

Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, wants the DOJ and FBI to hand over all documents related to the dossier on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. The committee also seeks to interview Ohr, Strzok, FBI attorneys James Baker, Lisa Page, and Sally Moyer and FBI assistant congressional affairs boss Greg Brower.

 

If the FBI and DOJ fail to comply in full, that will certify their partisan corruption, the larger back story of the Russia investigation. All testimony should be public so the people can watch on C-SPAN and avoid the deep-state disinformation of the old-line establishment media.

TABLES TURN: NOW FBI PROBED FOR ELECTION INTERFERENCE

House Intel Committee investigates plot to stop Trump


January 1, 2018

WND

 

President Donald Trump

 

WASHINGTON – What began as an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election has now become a probe into how federal law enforcement conspired to stop Donald Trump from becoming president.

 

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has expanded its investigation that began with claims of Russian collusion and a fraudulent memo paid for by Trump opponents to one that focuses on members of federal law enforcement – both in the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI – and how they actively worked against the Trump campaign and the eventual Trump presidency.

 

In a startling turnabout, committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is accusing the Justice Department and the FBI of misleading him in “a pattern of behavior that can no longer be tolerated.” He charges that Justice claimed it possesses no documents related to the infamous Trump dossier, then, under pressure, produced “numerous” such papers.

U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.

 

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is already opposing the move, even though he and other Democrats have conceded recently that finding a Russia-Trump conspiracy has produced no real evidence.

 

Nunes has put in place what amounts to a separate investigation of the FBI and the Justice Department hierarchy.

 

According to reports, the major components are:

 

  • Fusion GPS, the opposition research company that prepared the bogus Trump-Russia dossier with money from Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

 

  • How the FBI allowed that dossier to fuel investigations since July 2016.

 

  • Investigative bias that has been discovered regarding several key investigators.

 

A key subpoenaed witness is David Kramer, an associate of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. Kramer is one of the few people known to have possessed a hard copy of the dossier. McCain asked Kramer to represent him at a Nov. 28, 2016, meeting with Christopher Steele in Surrey, England. Steele compiled the 35 pages of memos making up the dossier based on his paid Kremlin sources.

 

Kramer then obtained a copy of the dossier from Fusion GPS and McCain hand-delivered a copy to then-FBI director James B. Comey in December 2016.

 

Thank President Trump for all his accomplishments during his first year in office. Send him a FREE card of your choice. Go to ThankTrump.us

 

According to an interview in Mother Jones magazine, Steele said he supplied his memos accusing Trump of a Russia conspiracy to the FBI in “early July” 2016. Comey has testified he began the counterintelligence investigation in “late July.” The memos accused the Trump team of a conspiracy with the Kremlin to damage Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

 

Nunes wants more information on how the bureau used the document to investigate Trump people. He has been unsuccessfully trying to gain access to FBI documents.

 

In a Dec. 28 letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Nunes said the Department of Justice at first said dossier-related FBI interview summaries, known as 302s, “did not exist.” Weeks later, under an Aug. 24 subpoena, DOJ suddenly located “numerous FD-302s pertaining to the Steele dossier, thereby rendering the initial response disingenuous at best,” the House intel committee chief wrote.

 

Based on the record of stonewalling, Nunes said the committee no longer can accept Justice’s position that it cannot turn over other official investigative forms, called 1032s. They document meetings between the FBI and confidential human sources.

 

He gave the Justice Department until Wednesday to comply with his requests.

 

“Unfortunately, DOJ/FBI’s intransigence with respect to the August 24 subpoenas is part of a broader pattern of behavior that can no longer be tolerated,” Nunes wrote. “At this point, it seems the DOJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves.”

DOJ Must Strenuously Examine BHO Admin. Corruption


John R. Houk

© December 24, 2017

 

President Barack Hussein Obama was the most corrupt President the USA has ever had. And there have been some past corrupt Presidents. Here is a brief list of historically considered bad Presidents stretching from the 19th century to the 20th century. Avoiding 21st century considerations, some Presidents considered bad by the great divide of the political spectrum are not listed (from least worst to worst):

 

10. Martin Van Buren

 

9. Chester A. Arthur

 

8. Herbert Clark Hoover

 

7. Millard Fillmore

 

6. William Henry Harrison

 

5. John Tyler

 

4. Warren G. Harding

 

3. Franklin Pierce

 

2. Andrew Johnson

 

1. James Buchanan

 

(This list compilation has summaries of reasoning behind their bad marks: The 10 Worst Presidents In The History Of The United States; By C.L. Illsley; WorldAtlas.com; 6/15/17)

 

If you’ve been listening to popularity stats lately, President BHO has remarkably high favorability with a majority of polled Americans. Since these high marks seem a bit delusional to me, either the polls are very warped (Pollsters picked Crooked Hillary to easily beat President Trump. That did not happen!) or the Leftist Mainstream (MSM) has successfully brainwashed Americans with disinformation propaganda.

 

The entirety of Obama’s two-term eight-year stint as President was racked with scandals that Obama and the MSM pooh-poohed by lack of reporting, disinformation or just downright lying. To examine those scandals would no-doubt fill a decent sized book.

 

So, I’m going to look at some more recent Obama/Crooked Hillary wrong doings that the Trump DOJ should examine. There should be renewed calls for “Lock her up” and add “Lock him up”.

Clinton campaign propaganda appears to have triggered Obama administration spying on Trump’s campaign.

By ANDREW C. MCCARTHY
December 23, 2017 4:00 AM
National Review

 

The FBI’s deputy director Andrew McCabe testified Tuesday at a marathon seven-hour closed-door hearing of the House Intelligence Committee. According to the now-infamous text message sent by FBI agent Peter Strzok to his paramour, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, it was in McCabe’s office that top FBI counterintelligence officials discussed what they saw as the frightening possibility of a Trump presidency.

 

That was during the stretch run of the 2016 campaign, no more than a couple of weeks after they started receiving the Steele dossier — the Clinton campaign’s opposition-research reports, written by former British spy Christopher Steele, about Trump’s purportedly conspiratorial relationship with Vladimir Putin’s regime in Russia.

 

Was it the Steele dossier that so frightened the FBI? I think so.

 

There is a great deal of information to follow. But let’s cut to the chase: The Obama-era FBI and Justice Department had great faith in Steele because he had previously collaborated with the bureau on a big case. Plus, Steele was working on the Trump-Russia project with the wife of a top Obama Justice Department official, who was personally briefed by Steele. The upper ranks of the FBI and DOJ strongly preferred Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, to the point of overlooking significant evidence of her felony misconduct, even as they turned up the heat on Trump. In sum, the FBI and DOJ were predisposed to believe the allegations in Steele’s dossier. Because of their confidence in Steele, because they were predisposed to believe his scandalous claims about Donald Trump, they made grossly inadequate efforts to verify his claims. Contrary to what I hoped would be the case, I’ve come to believe Steele’s claims were used to obtain FISA surveillance authority for an investigation of Trump.

 

There were layers of insulation between the Clinton campaign and Steele — the campaign and the Democratic party retained a law firm, which contracted with Fusion GPS, which in turn hired the former spy. At some point, though, perhaps early on, the FBI and DOJ learned that the dossier was actually a partisan opposition-research product. By then, they were dug in. No one, after all, would be any the wiser: Hillary would coast to victory, so Democrats would continue running the government; FISA materials are highly classified, so they’d be kept under wraps. Just as it had been with the Obama-era’s Fast and Furious and IRS scandals, any malfeasance would remain hidden.

 

The best laid schemes . . . gang aft agley. [Blog Editor: Not being well read in the poetry realm, I had to look-up “gang aft agley”. It comes from a quite famous Robert Burns poem that you’ll probably recognize it when you read it:

 

A line of the poem “To A Mouse” is often quoted: “The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men” to mean that well-planned plans can go wrong.

 

          But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane,

          In proving foresight may be vain;

          The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men,

          Gang aft agley,

          An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,

          For promis’d joy!

 

          — “To A Mouse” by Robert Burns

 

‘Gang aft agley’ is Scottish and means ‘Often go wrong’.

More directly translated:

 

  • gang = ‘to go’
  • aft = ‘oft’ (or often)
  • agley = ‘askew, awry’ (i.e. wrong, badly. ‘Gley’ is ‘squint’, so more literally would be ‘off squint’)

 

‘Aft’ in this context has no relation to the nautical meaning of ‘aft’, but is a Scottish form of ‘oft’. (Of Mice and Men; wiki.c2.com; Last edit 10/3/12)]

 

Why It Matters

 

Strzok’s text about the meeting in McCabe’s office is dated August 16, 2016. As we’ll see, the date is important. According to Agent Strzok, with Election Day less than three months away, Page, the bureau lawyer, weighed in on Trump’s bid: “There’s no way he gets elected.” Strzok, however, believed that even if a Trump victory was the longest of long shots, the FBI “can’t take that risk.” He insisted that the bureau had no choice but to proceed with a plan to undermine Trump’s candidacy: “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

 

 

But what were these “allegations of collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia” that the FBI decided to “aggressively investigate”? … As I explained in the column, the question is critical for three reasons:

 

(1) The Steele dossier was a Clinton campaign product. If it was used by the FBI and the Obama Justice Department to obtain a FISA warrant, that would mean law-enforcement agencies controlled by a Democratic president fed the FISA court political campaign material produced by the Democratic candidate whom the president had endorsed to succeed him. Partisan claims of egregious scheming with an adversarial foreign power would have been presented to the court with the FBI’s imprimatur, as if they were drawn from refined U.S. intelligence reporting. The objective would have been to spy on the opposition Republican campaign.

(2) In June of this year, former FBI director James Comey testified that the dossier was “salacious and unverified.” While still director, Comey had described the dossier the same way when he briefed President-elect Trump on it in January 2017. If the dossier was still unverified as late as mid 2017, its allegations could not possibly have been verified months earlier, in the late summer or early autumn of 2016, when it appears that the FBI and DOJ used them in an application to the FISA court.

(3) The dossier appears to contain misinformation. Knowing he was a spy-for-hire trusted by Americans, Steele’s Russian-regime sources had reason to believe that misinformation could be passed into the stream of U.S. intelligence and that it would be acted on — and leaked — as if it were true, to America’s detriment. This would sow discord in our political system. If the FBI and DOJ relied on the dossier, it likely means they were played by the Putin regime.

 

 

At the time, Bruce Ohr was the Obama Justice Department’s point man for “Transnational Organized Crime and International Affairs,” having been DOJ’s long-serving chief of the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section. He also wore a second, top-echelon DOJ hat: associate deputy attorney general. That made him a key adviser to the deputy attorney general, Sally Yates (who later, as acting attorney general, was fired for insubordinately refusing to enforce President Trump’s so-called travel ban). In the chain of command, the FBI reports to the DAG’s office.

 

To do the Trump-Russia research, Steele had been retained by the research firm Fusion GPS (which, to repeat, had been hired by lawyers for the Clinton campaign and the DNC). Fusion GPS was run by its founder, former Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Glenn Simpson. Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie, a Russia scholar, worked for Simpson at Fusion. The Ohrs and Simpson appear to be longtime acquaintances, dating back to when Simpson was a senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center. In 2010, all three participated in a two-day conference on international organized crime, sponsored by the National Institute of Justice (see conference schedule and participant list, pp. 27–30). In connection with the Clinton campaign’s Trump-Russia project, Fusion’s Nellie Ohr collaborated with Steele and Simpson, and DOJ’s Bruce Ohr met personally with Steele and Simpson.

 

But that is just the beginning of the bias story.

 

At a high level, the DOJ and FBI were in the tank for Hillary Clinton. In July 2016, shortly before Steele’s reports started floating in, the FBI and DOJ announced that no charges would be brought against Mrs. Clinton despite damning evidence that she mishandled classified information, destroyed government files, obstructed congressional investigations, and lied to investigators. The irregularities in the Clinton-emails investigation are legion: President Obama making it clear in public statements that he did not want Clinton charged; the FBI, shortly afterwards, drafting an exoneration of Clinton months before the investigation ended and central witnesses, including Clinton herself, were interviewed; investigators failing to use the grand jury to compel the production of key evidence; the DOJ restricting FBI agents in their lines of inquiry and examination of evidence; the granting of immunity to suspects who in any other case would be pressured to plead guilty and cooperate against more-culpable suspects; the distorting of criminal statutes to avoid applying them to Clinton; the sulfurous tarmac meeting between Attorney General Lynch and former President Clinton shortly before Mrs. Clinton was given a peremptory interview — right before then–FBI director Comey announced that she would not be charged.

Report: How Fusion GPS and the Obama Administration Weaponized the Trump Dossier

 

By KRISTINA WONG

22 Dec 2017

Breibart – Big Government

 

Did the Obama administration launch an investigation into the Trump campaign based solely off of unverified political opposition research? And was that “research” dressed up and given more credibility than it should have? It appears that way based on an investigation of open-source information by Tablet.

 

The outlet’s investigation begins with a June 24, 2017, Facebook post by Mary Jacoby, the wife of Glenn Simpson, the former Wall Street Journal reporter who started Fusion GPS, the firm behind the dossier.

 

Jacoby, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who once shared bylines with Simpson, bragged how her husband was not getting the credit he deserved for the dossier.

 

 

Until this day, the dossier is often referred to as the “Steele dossier,” named after the former British spy Christopher Steele who is believed to have authored the document.

 

Steele’s background has been used by collusion-believers to argue that the document is credible. But Jacoby’s post suggests that Steele might not have played as big of a role in the dossier as he is given credit.

 

Indeed, Fusion GPS hiring of Nellie Ohr — the wife of senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr — also shows that Steele’s role in producing the dossier may be exaggerated. Ohr is a Stanford Ph.D. whose expertise is Russia and she appears to be fluent in Russian. She may have conducted interviews or written parts of the dossier.

 

The dossier, however, only has Steele’s name on it — helping to credential the research as an “intelligence product.”

 

Tablet also took a look at Simpson and Jacoby’s work for the WSJ. …

 

 

Tablet explains how their reporting may have been the origins of the Trump dossier:

 

So when the Trump campaign named Paul Manafort as its campaign convention manager on March 28, 2016, you can bet that Simpson and Jacoby’s eyes lit up. And as it happened, at the exact same time that Trump hired Manafort, Fusion GPS was in negotiations with Perkins Coie, the law firm representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, to see if there was interest in the firm continuing the opposition research on the Trump campaign they had started for the Washington Free Beacon. In addition to whatever sales pitch Simpson might have offered about Manafort, the Clinton campaign had independent reason to believe that research into Manafort’s connections might pay some real political dividends: A Democratic consultant and Ukrainian-American activist named Alexandra Chalupa, told the Clinton campaign about Manafort’s work for Yanukovich. “I flagged for the DNC the significance of his hire,” Chalupa told CNN in July of this year.

 

Tablet notes that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would later find corruption by Manafort related to money laundering (before he joined the Trump campaign). It also points out that Tony Podesta — Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s brother — worked for Manafort at the time he represented Yanukovich. (The Podesta Group disbanded this year after those connections were made public, and the special counsel is reportedly investigating Podesta too.)

 

Tablet notes that while Simpson had begun working on the dossier on Trump collusion with Russia, he was also working for a Russian lawyer to undermine an American law called the Magnitsky Act and that Steele may have been hired to disguise that contradiction.

 

Steele — it notes — had not lived or worked in Russia for nearly 25 years, but his name “at a minimum” would be useful in marketing whatever his firm pulled together. Plus, Steele had a good relationship with the FBI and could “spill secrets” to journalists.

 

 

Jacoby would post that story in her June 24 Facebook post, slamming the FBI and accusing it of “ineptitude,” while the CIA “hopped to and immediately worked to verify” the dossier.

 

She said by August 2016, the CIA had “verified the key finding of the dossier” to the point that it was having “eyes only” top secret meetings with President Obama about it.

 

Thus, while the document could not be verified and was not used in any intelligence assessment because of its inability to be verified, it was now the topic of meetings with the president.

 

CIA Director John Brennan had also briefed top lawmakers on Russian efforts to help Trump last summer and had said the CIA had limited legal ability to investigate Russian connections to Trump, prompting Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) to write a public letter to the FBI — which collects domestic intelligence — about the threat of Russian interference.

 

 

That “information” Reid was referring to was the dossier, according to Tablet:

 

According to David Corn’s Oct. 31, 2016, article in Mother Jones, the Nevada lawmaker was referencing the findings of “a former senior intelligence officer for a Western country who specialized in Russian counterintelligence.”

 

Corn now explains that the “former Western intelligence officer—who spent almost two decades on Russian intelligence matters and who now works with a U.S. firm that gathers information on Russia for corporate clients” is Christopher Steele. According to Corn, Steele said that “in recent months he provided the bureau with memos, based on his recent interactions with Russian sources, contending the Russian government has for years tried to co-opt and assist Trump.”

 

It appears that Brennan was briefing Reid on the Steele dossier.

 

Brennan apparently sent the dossier to the White House, prompting the “eyes only” meetings.

 

“An envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried ‘eyes only’ instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides,” the Washington Post reported on June 23, 2017.

 

“So was the Steele dossier in the envelope?” Tablet asks.

 

 

The Post also writes that the “material was so sensitive that CIA Director John O. Brennan kept it out of the president’s daily brief, concerned that even that restricted report’s distribution was too broad.”

 

But as Tablet asks, “if the material was so sensitive that it had to be kept out of the PDB and withheld from the Senate majority leader, why was someone telling The Washington Post about it?”

 

Tablet writes:

 

Sources and methods are the crown jewels of the American intelligence community. And yet someone has just told a major American newspaper about a “report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government … that captured Putin’s specific instructions.” If the CIA had a human intelligence source that close to Putin, publication of the Post article could have exposed that source—doing incalculable damage to American national security. He and many of his loved ones would then have presumably died horrible deaths.

 

Or, as Mary Jacoby surmised, it was her husband’s handiwork that landed on the president’s desk.

BOMBSHELL: Obama Calls His Lawyers In Panic As Trump Uncovers ‘The Woman He Tried To Hide’

Barack Obama was sure that he had covered his trail as he took every precaution to hide his relationship with one woman. Poor Obama didn’t hide her well enough, and right before President Donald Trump left for his Christmas vacation, he secretly made sure that this woman’s shocking criminal relationship to the former president was exposed. Obama felt sheer panic, calling his team of attorneys, and his head is not the only one going to roll.

The president just gave the American people the best Christmas gifts ever; a huge new tax reform law and now the evidence proving Barack Hussien [sic] Obama knew and sanctioned the illegal scheme to try to ensure the GOP candidate for president, Donald Trump, would never see inside the White House. It’s all part of the same scheme that is behind the coup attempt to impeach Trump once he won, and the key is a woman named Mary Jacoby.

 

Who’s Mary Jacoby? Well, sit back my fellow Americans and pop some popcorn, as you learn of the one woman who is playing a prominent role in bringing down the Obama regime and the Clinton crime cartel for good. On April 10, 2016, Mary Jacoby showed up on White House visitor logs, meeting with President Obama and his top officials, and she doesn’t leave for 14 hours.

 

That same month, April 2016, the Clinton Campaign and DNC hired Fusion-GPS to organize the Russia research, which later became known as the bogus “Russian dossier.” Mary Jacoby is the wife of Fusion-GPS head Glenn Simpson. But, there’s more.

 

Copy of White House logs from April 10, 2016, showing Mary Jacoby was meeting with Obama officials for 14 hours.

 

 

So, not only is Jacoby the wife of the guy who is behind compiling the Russian dossier, a totally fabricated document, we now know that Russian dossier was submitted as the only evidence by the FBI cabal, including former Director James Comey and his Deputy Director Andy McCabe, to obtain wiretaps on the then-candidate Donald Trump and his campaign. 

 

Jacoby even boasted about it in a Facebook post. “In a Facebook post from June 24, 2017, that Tablet has seen in screenshots, Jacoby claimed that her husband deserves the lion’s share of credit for Russiagate. (She has not replied to repeated requests for comment.) ‘It’s come to my attention that some people still don’t realize what Glenn’s role was in exposing Putin’s control of Donald Trump,’ Jacoby wrote. ‘Let’s be clear. Glenn conducted the investigation. Glenn hired Chris Steele. Chris Steele worked for Glenn,’” reported Tablet Magazine.

 

… Her husband Glenn Simpson assigned the actual writing of the Russian dossier to his Russia expert at Fusion-GPS, a woman named Nellie Ohr.

 

This is where the DOJ’s former associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr comes in — he is married to Nellie Ohr. He also has admitted to meeting with Glenn Simpson to obtain the fake Russian dossier for the DOJ before anyone knew who his wife was.

 

 

There’s one more thing. All of these snakes communicated without being detected by the good guys left in the intelligence community, but how? Records prove Nellie Ohr got a license for a HAM radio in May 2016. These rats knew the NSA does not monitor traffic by HAM radios. They really thought they had covered their tracks.

 

Obama never fathomed this illegal scheme wouldn’t work. He counted on ensuring Hillary Clinton would win the election. After she lost, he tried to hide all trails that would lead back to him as the FBI and DOJ cabal started phase two, the “Trump-Russia” Robert Mueller investigation, which they thought would eventually make Trump resign or be impeached. Except, he forgot about the White House visitors logs, which are now in the custody of President Donald Trump. …

THE REAL RUSSIAN COLLUSION


Ion Mihai Pacepa: circa 1975 (Left) & In American Spectator 2010 (Right)

 

Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa (Wikipedia-Neutral info and National Catholic Register-Critical info) was a high-level Intelligence Officer of the former Soviet Bloc Communist nation of Romania. At the time, Romania was one of the worst Communist dictatorships in oppressing its own people in the Soviet Communist days of Eastern Europe.

 

Pacepa defected from Romania and Communism in 1978. His intel demolished Romanian Intel networks which of course worked closely with the former Soviet Union. Pacepa has written (often in corroboration) many exposes on Soviet Intelligence operations. Many of Pacepa’s assertions have been difficult to swallow by Left-oriented people in the West. Pacepa has stepped on the toes of the Left oriented side of the Roman Catholic Church (Can you say Marxist Liberation Theology? [According to Pacepa and DTN]).

 

This an intro into the guy who has written an article for WND exposing the Mainstream Media (MSM) as a tool for Marxist propaganda to bring down President Donald Trump because the President is an overt threat to the fundamental transformation of America to the Deep State entrenched in the U.S. government.

THE REAL RUSSIAN COLLUSION

Ex-Soviet-bloc spy-chief tell how ‘MSM’ have become bona fide disinformation tool

 

By LT. GEN. ION MIHAI PACEPA

December 20, 2017

WND

 

EDITOR’S NOTE: Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa is the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence official ever to defect to the West, who currently lives under deep cover in the U.S. as a proud American citizen. In 1988, Gen. Pacepa published “Red Horizons,” which exposed the crimes and corruption of his former boss, Romanian President Nicolae Ceausescu, prompting the dictator to post multi-million-dollar bounties on Pacepa’s head and send assassination squads to the U.S. to kill him – unsuccessfully. “Red Horizons” was translated into 27 languages and republished in a Mao-style pocket book that circulated within the Soviet bloc. President Reagan called the book “my Bible for dealing with dictators.”

In 2013, Pacepa teamed up with professor Ronald Rychlak to write “Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism,” published by WND Books, which also generated an award-winning film documentary, “Disinformation: The Secret Strategy to Destroy the West.” A major Hollywood film is now being produced based on “Disinformation.”

Over the 66 years I have been connected with the intelligence business – 27 in the Soviet bloc and 39 in the U.S. – I have learned that changing minds by manipulating the media is what Russian Marxism has always been all about. Now I see a unique form of Americanized dezinformatsyia – disinformation – intent on convincing America that its traditional free-market capitalist system, which made it the leader of the world, is somehow evil, and that the only way of the future is the progressivist redistribution of America’s wealth and its message of free everything for everybody, accomplished by “soaking the rich.”

 

The historic election of a capitalist entrepreneur, Donald Trump, as U.S. president conclusively proved that the great American middle class wanted to free itself from the claws of former president Barack Obama’s Marxism – now re-baptized “progressivism” – and likewise from his ruinous flirtation with the alien god of Kremlinist autocracy. Obama left us with a wide array of frightening threats, from a raving, nuclear-armed North Korean tyrant to a catastrophic Soviet-style national debt of almost $20 trillion.

 

Unfortunately, our leftist media – ignoring America’s decades-long war against the ruinous Marxist concept that governments, not the people, own their countries – seem ready to ignite a new American civil war. A war over an alien system – Marxist progressivism – that in a different time and place dispossessed a third of the world’s population of its properties, killed tens of millions, made itself a religion and its leader the only god allowed.

 

Out of 1,331 daily newspapers in our still-capitalist nation, only two – the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Florida Times-Union – unconditionally endorsed the capitalist candidate Donald Trump during the election campaign, and little seems to have changed since then.

 

A Pew Research Center analysis of 3,000 news stories published in the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency found that only 5 percent were positive, and that 62 percent of them portrayed the capitalist President Trump as incompetent, his political views as repugnant and his advisers as fools.

 

As the New York Post noted in an editorial: “The New York Times ran a front-page opinion piece declaring that with a ‘demagogue’ in the White House, ‘you have to throw out the textbook’ and ‘move closer’ than ever ‘to being oppositional.’ Jack Shafer, Politico’s senior media writer, called on reporters ‘to start thinking of covering Trump’s Washington like a war zone. … It’s time to circle behind enemy lines.’ And the editor of the Columbia Journalism Review, presuming to speak for the entire press corps, penned an open letter basically telling Trump, We make the rules, and we’ll call out your lies, repeatedly.”

 

Even Pope Francis in his Vatican enclave has seen what is going on. “Media that … spread fake news to smear politicians risk becoming like people who have a morbid fascination with excrement,” he recently told the Belgian Catholic weekly Tertio. The Pontiff excused himself for using earthy terms to get his point across, but he described the media’s current disinformation as a cardinal sin, and decided to make the war against disinformation – aka “fake news” – the theme of his message for World Communication Day 2018 next May.

 

So, let’s tell it like it is – the media are disinforming America. It wasn’t always like that. In January 1990, when U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, R.-Va., succeeded in extricating my daughter and her husband from Marxist Romania, 44 American radio and television stations joyfully proclaimed their arrival in Washington. The Washington Post was the first to interview them, and I still treasure its powerful condemnation of Marxist disinformation and terror by reporter Judith Weinraub.

 

Soon after that I had lunch with Katharine Weymouth, at that time publisher of the Washington Post, and I was greatly impressed by her firmly anti-communist stance. Later I became acquainted with William McPherson, editor of the Post’s Book World (and awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism). I was likewise amazed by his powerful condemnation of what he called “Marxist heresy.” McPherson even went to Romania to denounce the ghastly legacy of Ceausescu’s “independent” Marxism.

 

In January 2009, however, Barack Obama became the first undercover Marxist to become president of the United States. For sentimental reasons – that history will certainly condemn – most of our news media provided cover for Obama and, in the process, shifted further leftward than ever.

 

Order Lt. Gen. Pacepa’s eyeopening book, “Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategy for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion and Promoting Terrorism.” or get both the book and DVD, “Disinformation: The Secret Strategy To Destroy The West” together – and save!

 

Today, America’s “mainstream media” seem to believe that bashing free-market capitalism and our capitalist president is as American as apple pie. It is not. Ridiculing the U.S. president is an anti-American dezinformtsyia tool smuggled into the U.S. by the KGB community, and the communist Romanian foreign intelligence service I headed, the DIE, was one of the smugglers. (For details, see my “Propaganda Redux,” published in the Wall Street Journal a decade ago.)

 

During my years in the top circles of the Soviet bloc intelligence community, I heard from the lips of Nikita Khrushchev: “Change the public image of the leader, and you change history.” And that is exactly what we did back then. During the Cold War, the KGB – and its Romanian equivalent – published countless disinformation stories portraying President Truman as the “butcher of Hiroshima,” President Eisenhower as a “shark of the war-mongering military-industrial complex,” President Kennedy as an arrogant millionaire who thought he owned the world, and President Johnson as a Mafioso who had bumped off his predecessor.

 

During the age of Obama, the KGB-style vilification of American political leaders became a standard journalistic tactic in the U.S. as well. For example, in 2012 a 5,000-word piece Washington Post article portrayed Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate for the White House, as an anti-Semitic, anti-gay bully who had psychologically murdered one John Lauber, an allegedly gay classmate in their prep school days, by forcefully chopping off a shock of his bleached hair. According to the Post, Lauber was a fragile young man and his body collapsed around a spirit broken, thanks to Mitt Romney. Wow! How dare that bullying brute Romney even think about running for the White House?

 

A few weeks later the Post story proved to be dezinformtsyia, but by then the damage was done. Romney lost the 2012 election.

 

“We Are All Socialists Now,” exulted the cover of Newsweek on Feb. 6, 2009, a couple weeks after Obama’s first presidential inauguration. That was just what Romania’s official newspaper Scînteia proclaimed when Ceausescu began changing Romania into a Marxist monument to himself. Scînteia later went bankrupt. And a year and a half after its “We’re Socialists” issue, Newsweek was sold for one dollar.

 

The sudden collapse of the Soviet Union proved that Marxism can bankrupt even the largest country on earth. Obama’s Marxism confirmed that rule; last January, when he left the White House, 95 million Americans were out of the workforce, food stamp beneficiaries exceeded 48 million, the GDP had fallen from 3.4 percent to 1.6 percent, and the national debt reached an unprecedented $202,000 per citizen.

 

During my young years, I never dreamed that by helping Marxism – now euphemized as progressivism – to gain a foothold in Romania I was actually committing a crime against my own country. But I grew older and wiser, and 39 years ago I turned my back on that destructive heresy, which has left in its wake only countries that ended up looking like trailer camps hit by a hurricane, and disgraced leaders roasting in Dante’s Inferno. Just look at today’s Venezuela.

 

Now I am joining the efforts of WND (whose founder and editor was also a Marxist when he was young, and whose managing editor edited “Disinformation,” the book I co-authored with professor Ronald Rychlak) to persuade our media to stop colluding with Russia and with undercover Marxism, and to become American again.

 

Make no mistake about it: While the “mainstream media” play Nero and fiddle with fake news and disinformation, America is burning. Beyond all the many obvious threats facing our nation from terrorism, criminal gangs and so on, the threat of nuclear terrorism against the U.S. is real and potentially cataclysmic. According to the U.S. Congressional Electro Magnetic Pulse Commission [Blog Editor: Heritage Foundation], a single nuclear EMP bomb detonated high above the U.S. mainland by the deranged tyrant of North Korea could collapse our country’s electric grid and the infrastructure necessary to sustain the lives of 300 million Americans [Blog Editor: Futurism.com]. Communications would cease, electrical power would disappear, transportation would halt. All past calamities of the modern era would pale in comparison to the catastrophe caused by one high-altitude EMP bomb – which could be launched with an old SCUD rocket from a fishing boat off our East or West Coast.

 

Competition is indeed the engine that has always driven the American dream forward. Unity in times of global warfare, however, is what has made this country of immigrants the undisputed leader of the world. But national unity is difficult if not impossible when the press, that near-sacred institution on which we rely for digging up and communicating vital truth, instead becomes the chief purveyors of lies and half-truths – in a word, of disinformation.

A collusion bombshell, but not on target


Hezbollah leader Nasrallah, Obama and Project Cassandra symbol

Wes Pruden writes about the obvious collusion the Mainstream Media (MSM) refuses to cover because of its irrational hatred of President Trump. This story would be huge in any period in the 20th century. In a polarized 21st century, not so much.

 

Here’s a clue: Nefarious Barack Obama and Project Cassandra. If there is not a crime in this somewhere, then the Left can do whatsoever it pleases and basically screw the U.S. Constitution and We The American People.

A collusion bombshell, but not on target

You’ve got to give the Democrats and their acolytes in the media credit for courage and a talent for tolerating bad taste and smell. It’s not easy to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to a corpse.

 

How else to keep alive the Trump-as-Russian agent investigation? Robert Mueller keeps hiring help, reluctantly cutting loose his chief investigator who turned out to be a Hillary plant eager for revenge, and keeping skeptics at bay with promises that he’ll light the fuse on a bombshell just as soon as he can find one.

 

Mr. Mueller may have a secret witness or two ready to come forward, but Deep Throat is dead and gone, and secrets are never kept in Washington. The Nation’s Capital leaks like a month-old infant.

 

From time to time someone obsessed with finding the key to nullifying the 2016 election and restoring Hillary to the White House, has stepped up with something new — not new evidence, but the same old song sung in louder voice, full of noise and gas, only to be soon revealed as signifying nothing. It’s back to waiting for something next week, or next month or even next year for the bombshell that will rattle the universe, or at least a few of the suburban precincts.

 

There’s lots of scandal out there, with fuses waiting for the match, and but for preoccupation with Russian collusion some of the more energetic Woodward-and-Bernstein impersonators might stumble upon some of it. One ambitious reporter, Josh Meyer of Politico, the Capitol Hill political daily, has delivered with a remarkable story on the weekend of how Barack Obama, with connivance of John Kerry, the Obama secretary of State, and John Brennan, Mr. Obama’s director of the CIA, scuttled an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) of Hezbollah, one of the most lethal distributors of worldwide terror, because the investigation was getting too close to Iran.

 

Mr. Obama’s obsession was with cutting a deal with Iran, and he cut it by giving the Iranians everything they wanted. Then he set out to avoid upsetting the mullahs. Mr. Obama knew enough about Islam, radical and otherwise, not to hurt the feelings of mullahs.

 

Called Project Cassandra, the investigation was opened in 2008 to track Hezbollah’s trafficking of drugs and weapons, money laundering and other sordid crime. Some of it was plotted in the United States. One investigator likened Hezbollah to the John Gotti crime family in New York, Gotti the so-called Teflon don who eluded justice for years.

 

In fact, the story does read like the plot of a double episode of a British detective mystery with so many twists, turns and dead-ends that only the man who wrote the script could keep up with them all (and he was never sure).

 

What comes through loud and clear is how Barack Obama, whose first presidential trip was to Cairo to apologize to the Muslims in the name of the United States for being the United States. He and his administration were determined never to disappoint Islam again.

 

The faces of Project Cassandra were those of John (“Jack”) Kelly, 51, and David Asher, 49, who, working out of a secret DEA safe house near Dulles International Airport, scoured wiretaps and patiently built a network of informants to map Hezbollah mischief with the help of U.S. and foreign intelligence and security agencies. The Politico account describes how Messrs. Kelly and Asher tangled with rival agencies that, in true and tested Washington bureaucratic practice, were sometimes more interested in protecting their turf than the nation’s security.

 

“But other agents embraced their swashbuckling reputation,” according to Politico, “claiming that more aggressive tactics were needed because the CIA had long turned a blind eye to Hezbollah’s criminal networks, and even cultivated informants within them, in a misguided and myopic focus on preventing terrorist attacks.”

 

They were so determined, Politico reports, that they damaged their careers by the intensity of the pursuit of the investigation. “It got to the point where a lot of people didn’t want to have meetings with them,” said one FBI terrorism task force who worked often with the two. “They refused to accept a ‘no’ for an answer. And they were given a ‘no’ for an answer, even though they were usually right.”

 

John Brennan, the former CIA director, was determined that the United States would embrace Hezbollah as an influence for tolerance and compassion, and this appealed to Mr. Obama’s instinct to blame America first for the sins of its tormentors. Mr. Brennan has been dogged for years by a story that he converted to Islam years ago in Saudi Arabia.

 

Mr. Obama wanted a deal, any deal, with Iran to cement his “legacy.” Now he has one. It’s just not the legacy he ordered.

The update is from a Five in Ten broadcast on SkyWatch TV talking about this Project Cassandra Catastrophe that Obama secured drug and arms dealing for Hezbollah so that Iran would sign the bad for America Nuke deal. The story is in the first 5-minutes or so, then moves on to other brief current event issues.
