An Intro to Southwest, CIA-Whistleblower & Soros


Intro by John R. Houk, Blog Editor

The information you are about to read was provided by the pseudonymous Southwest via USA.Life social media messenger. I have delayed posting because of the impression Southwest was going to provide some source links. Sourcing is always important to me due to Left-Wing nitpicking and info twisting I often encounter in comments or platform censorship.

 

Alas I may have irritated Southwest or he has been busy on other projects, because the sourcing has not arrived. As far as sources go, it is my sense that these two posts below could be the source of much of the information submitted by Southwest:

 

 

 

Southwest first shared this Whistleblower info on October 2. Since this Whistleblower share, Rep. Shifty Schiff has announced the emergence of at least one other Whistleblower lying about the Trump/Zelensky conversation. Old Shifty has been hiding alleged Whistleblowers from Republican cross-interviews casting a huge shadow on Whistleblower veracity. Here we are a few days from November and America is still being kept in the dark about the Dem Impeachment agenda which to date has produced nothing but lies.

 

Here is what Southwest has shared which thanks to Dem shadowy efforts are still quite relevant.

John, here is the report THE CIA OPERATIVE CALLING HIMSELF A WHISTLEBLOWER IS FUNDED BY SOROS 10/2/19
PART ONE

The Geller Report brought to the forefront the conspirators of a coup behind the so called CIA Whistleblower.

Here you have the OCCRP report stating that it is a “joint investigation by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and BuzzFeed News, based on interviews and court and business records in the United States and Ukraine.”

Other conspirators of OCCRP and funders: The usual suspects Google, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the U.S. State Department Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, plus Omidyar Network, (owner? Another globalist ready to force American into submission of the NWO: eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.)

If you visit OCCRP [Scroll to bottom of page], you’ll see that section lists the icons of its top funders, Soros’s Open Society Foundations and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)—courtesy of Geller Report.

Why would a CIA operative compromise the US national security and try to impeach a duly elected president? We need to dig deeper: throughout the document this CIA operative wrote on the footnotes: ‘OCCRP,’ which is funded by none other than what most people call a criminal political sociopath, namely, George Soros who claims he is going to rule the world because he has messianic dreams telling him that he should.

But whether Soros is a criminal sociopath or not, he is not alone, Amazon, Rockefeller, Kellogg, CIA, Google, and Microsoft, to name a few were behind this plot.

Soros’s Societies and Pet Projects have special identifiable labels, once you become familiar with them.

And their NGOs that cover up for their organized crime, you can almost recognize them just by the deceitfulness they imply. OCCRP stands for Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and it is a Soros-founded Open Society Foundations. Soros has been found [SEE ALSO video report: “MONSTER SOROS WORKED TO PRESERVE FETAL BODY PART TRAFFICKING BY FUNDING PLANNED PARENTHOOD”] in the middle of a controversy as the main investor/owner with Hillary in the illegal selling of human body parts. The pair is also found, with other players including several democrats connected to human traffic ring leaders. Children trafficking rings were also documented inside the CIA.

 

++++++++++++++++

THE CIA OPERATIVE CALLING HIMSELF A WHISTLEBLOWER IS FUNDED BY SOROS
PART TWO

If you recall, it was BuzzFeed that first published the anti-Trump dossier spreading false accusations about the President of the United States and Russia. Those false accusations were paid by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, plus DNC and Soros, and architected by Perkins Coie and produced by the Fusion GPS. Keep this name PERKINS COIE in mind. This law firm drafted every executive order Obama made, created a document to protect the children sex traffic ring in Arizona, which was connected to child protective service, according to the documents filed.

 

Perkins Coie was also the law firm that defended Osama Bin Laden driver (and if you missed that, Bush was a personal friend a partner with Osama Bin Laden: both owner of a bank in the Middle East). Perkins Coie was never asked to testify even though he was the middle man with Fusion GPS and the company is the middle man here with the CIA espionage attempt to enforce the globalists fourth coup against President Donald Trump.

 

[Blog Editor: Unless you live in a vacuum you are probably aware the Bush family fortune evolved from the oil industry. And in that oil fortune are associations with Saudi oil interests. Everything looks legit until international market alliances become tainted by Saudi billionaire families connection to Islamic terrorists attacking American soil. Most notably the September 11, 2001 attack (9/11) in New York City and the Pentagon Building in Washington DC. The sad state of affairs then becomes Bush family oil and bin Laden family oil and the Global War on Terrorism that has ensued – the longest war America has been involved with. As to Bush family/bin Laden family cahoots and/or coverups I’ll leave to others. On a personal level I doubt there was a Bush/bin Laden cahoots to 9/11. HOWEVER, for me, it is not beyond the scope of belief there were some sort of Bush family/bin Laden family coverups to protect billions in assets. For that matter, I suspect any coverup operations produced inter-family animus due to socio-religious-political that has evolved due Capitalist and religious conflicts in both families on global agendas. I’ll let the conspiracists battle that out but of interest might be these facts that the way the dots are connected are undoubtedly subjective rather than objective:

 

 

  • The Bush Family Saga – Airbrushed Out of History; By William Bowles (Author’s Note: This essay is an updated version of my original piece, ‘Frauds-R-US, written for ‘Devastating Society’, edited by Bernd Hamm, Pluto Press, 2005. Unfortunately, due to space restrictions, I had cut down the size of this essay for the book version. WB) Originally published Investigating Imperialism 6/24/05 and republished Global Research 12/2/16 – Relevant section to Bush/bin Laden banking – scroll down to “Arbusto Oil, the Carlyle Group and the bin Laden Connection

 

On a speculative note, Bush family Never Trumper attitudes might be related to Bush/bin Laden coverups. For now back to the Deep State Whistleblower Coup story.]

 

Regarding Fusion GPS, this falsification was called “opposition research” to look benign. Does the word Sanctuary city come to memory? Those names are part of a disinformation campaign effective by CIA operating the Media and their counterparts to collapse America. (I wasn’t able to find any commercial TV Station without at least one CIA operative. If you find one, let me know. So, radio maybe a lesser compromised vehicle because the CIA and the Deep State are targeting the TV and the Internet at this moment)

There’s a lot of talking that it was Perkins Coie that prepared this CIA whistleblower/spy document. Most likely it was.

The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) pretends to investigate crimes, they are the ones perpetrating crimes against Americans, this country, our constitution and the office of the presidency in order to bring the US under the control of the communist globalist ideals pursued by Soros and his partners.

OCCRP is, from all things, a non-profit being sheltered in all aspects to continue to commit crimes, receiving funds from American tax dollars approved by Congress, I assume, mostly democrats but you can check to see how many ‘yes’ they got and from whom.

OCCRP describes itself as a “non-profit media organization providing an investigative reporting platform for the Network.” What network?

The Geller Report and others found the connections and can answer this question directly.

“Soros, Google, Omidyar Network OCCRP states, “We now connect 45 non-profit investigative centers in 34 countries, scores of journalists and several major regional news organizations across Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.” And as it is customary, it uses undefined phraseology and terms with broad ranges of meaning to mislead the public.”

(Indeed, OCCRP provides a hyperlink to the webpage for Soros’s Open Society at the bottom left corner of every page on OCCRP’s own website.)

Soros’s Open Society is one of the top donors for this organized crime to misinform and to silence the truth to the American People. Please post this information on your Social Media. To save this country from a Naziglobalcommunization we need every person to be counted and informed.

The Left’s Moderation of Conservative Media


In case you were unaware, the online publication BuzzFeed is a lying Left-Wing Internet rag hugely responsible for spreading Leftist propaganda, disinformation, misinformation and even tipping toward downright lies. In essence BuzzFeed is the Prince of notorious Fake News. Of most infamy is the publication of the discredited Steele Dossier used as a Dem pretext to exact a silent coup against President Trump via the mechanizations of a Left-dominated Federal bureaucracy in the DOJ and various Intelligence Agencies.

 

Looking at BuzzFeed’s infamous notoriety for Leftist hit pieces, Mark Alexander in his Thursday column openly wonders about Buzzfeed’s interest in the operation The Patriot Post.

The Left’s Moderation of Conservative Media

They are relentless and use Gestapo tactics.”

 

By Mark Alexander

July 17, 2019

The Patriot Post

 

“If by the liberty of the press were understood merely the liberty of discussing the propriety of public measures and political opinions, let us have as much of it as you please. But if it means the liberty of affronting, calumniating and defaming one another, I, for my part, own myself willing to part with my share of it.” —Benjamin Franklin (1789)

 

Digital Media Monitors

 

Sometimes I am able to plan a topic more than 48 hours ahead of my deadline. This started as one of those weeks. But as with the best-laid plans, sometimes it’s necessary to alter them. (I’ll say a bit more on that original topic at the end of this column.)

 

The Patriot Post has become the target of a thinly veiled effort to undermine the reach of our conservative voice. That effort was launched by one of the biggest entertainment/news tabloids on the Web, BuzzFeed, with a review claiming that we’re “the biggest mystery in conservative media” and raising questions about the team “behind one of the oldest conservative” online news organizations.

 

BuzzFeed’s media editor, its resident expert on “fake news” (I know, the irony is rich), has used that platform for his inquiry. When a Leftmedia outlet with a budget hundreds of times the size of our small grassroots organization targets us — a “David versus Goliath” contest, if you will — it creates a quandary.

 

We have a longstanding Patriot Post policy: “Don’t swap spit with a jackass.” But when the accuser has a huge platform, as one of our editors noted, “to leave misinformation uncontested is tantamount to suggesting that it’s true.” And while it’s likely that none of you, our readers, are even aware of the BuzzFeed accusations, rebut we must.

 

Sometimes criticism is intended to be constructive.

 

Last week, for example, I wrote about the rise of a new genre of digital-media arbiters of truth, in which I mentioned a new media accountability effort, NewsGuard, and explained how it worked. I further noted that whenever humans render opinions about the world around them, they inevitably bring a bias to that perspective.

 

However, undergoing NewsGuard’s process of evaluation was helpful to our team. It employs a battalion of professional journalists, which we have never claimed to be, and their questions and suggestions helped us improve what we do.

 

On the other hand, sometimes criticism is intended to be destructive. With BuzzFeed, and the leftist academic social-media “expert” who pointed them at us with a clear agenda, their intent was something other than constructive.

 

The inquiries about The Patriot Post started with BuzzFeed’s “fake news expert,” Toronto-based Media Editor Craig Silverman. He seems like a decent person whose left-of-center bias is mostly the byproduct of being caught in a Leftmedia echo chamber.

 

The timing of Silverman’s appointment to his current position is ironic, as it came just before BuzzFeed’s Leftmedia hacks published the infamous fake “Russian Dossier,” a completely fabricated opposition-research document funded by the Democrat Party and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. That provided the fodder that mainstream-media outlets like CNN and MSNBC needed to promote as the basis for the Democrat/MSM propaganda machine’s bogus two-year Trump/Russia collusion investigation, a ruse to obstruct Trump’s MAGA agenda.

 

Suffice it to say that the fake dossier has since been completely debunked, but not before BuzzFeed issued yet another bombshell fabrication, prompting special prosecutor Robert Mueller to take the unusual step of calling out the BuzzFeed report as fake news. Buzzfeed will never shed the ethical malpractice for this partisan “fake news” charades. (See “Beyond BuzzFeed: The 10 Worst, Most Embarrassing U.S. Media Failures on the Trump-Russia Story.”)

 

For his part, Silverman now distances himself from the term “fake news,” because Donald Trump has successfully hung that moniker where it belongs: around the necks of the Leftmedia. And while it’s entirely possible that Silverman really wants to eradicate the purveyors of misinformation, he’s leading that charge from one of the most prolific propagators of misinformation on the Web.

 

As you may know, BuzzFeed is having serious problems.

 

Founded in 2006 by Left Coast native Jonah Peretti, the company had over $300 million in revenues in 2018. Notably, $84 million of that was from Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Netflix, and yet, according to The New York Times, “the company still loses money.” Amid a decline in traffic, BuzzFeed is laying off hundreds of its news staff because, as Silverman told me, the profit is on the entertainment side.

 

As for BuzzFeed’s collaboration with Facebook, it is notable that the latter was just issued a $5 BILLION fine for breaches of privacy, which is why nobody should trust such platforms with any personal information.

 

When he inquired about The Patriot Post’s unusual model of accepting no advertising, Silverman said, “Refusing ads is a notable policy given that email lists are huge moneymakers … and The Patriot Post’s has been built up over more than 20 years.”

 

As for our principled reasoning for refusing advertising, I referred him to our About page, which explains, “Our website pages and emails are certified ‘Ad Free.’ Because we do not depend on a single penny of ad revenue, we focus solely on providing you content that is actually newsworthy — worthy of your time — rather than constantly churning the ubiquitous topics which now dominate the Leftmedia’s relentless 24/7 recycled spin.” Additionally, “We are not sustained by any political, special interest, or parent organization, and we do not accept advertising to ensure our advocacy and editorial content is not restrained by commercial influence — as is the case with all mass media outlets. Our website and email editions are free of advertising clutter.”

 

Silverman actually lamented that BuzzFeed’s model is built on churning news to bait “viral” clicks and ad views to generate revenue. I appreciated his candor. (I would note that, unlike BuzzFeed, our unconventional model has kept us operating in the black since our first year on the Web — a decade before the advent of BuzzFeed and its brand of entertainment media.)

 

Regarding Silverman’s inquiry, one of his followers asked a good question: “What was the point … to inform us a conservative news platform uses pseudonyms and doesn’t accept ad revenue? Okay … thanks for the info?”

 

GRYGIEL AND WARREN CELEBRATING ‘GAY’ MARRIAGE

 

To help answer that question, I asked Silverman who first brought The Patriot Post to his attention and why. He responded, “Professor Jennifer Grygiel” of Syracuse University, a leftist colleague who “tracks partisan media” and “teaches a course about BuzzFeed. … I previously spoke to her class.” He said he promised to give her a byline if he published a story about The Patriot Post.

 

So this inquiry did not originate at BuzzFeed. It started when a hard-left LGBT activist, an assistant professor of communications from upstate New York, who promotes herself as a social-media expert, fed Silverman the story. He says it was because of our social-media growth. But there are thousands of social media pages that are growing, so why is Grygiel so interested in The Patriot Post, and how many others has Silverman written about?

 

A few weeks ago, there was a complaint lodged against our Facebook page about a meme, which correctly asserted that there are only two genders. This resulted in a takedown and penalty from Facebook. Suspiciously, following that complaint, Grygiel contacted Silverman.

 

Grygiel, who prefers the pronoun pseudonym “they,” identifies her areas of expertise as social media, memes, media regulation, police media, social justice, LGBTQ youth advocacy, race, and gender, but her specific expertise appears to be how to get social-media outlets to restrict content that doesn’t comport with her political and social views.

 

In short, Grygiel and her ilk are forming the new front against the First Amendment.

 

When I asked Silverman if he was aware of her political views, he responded. “I don’t know Grygiel’s political views.” Given their collaborative history, that reply seemed somewhat less than candid.

 

To be fair, though, I also asked him what his impression of The Patriot Post was, and he responded, “I looked at recent issues of the digest and found them to be filled with interesting information and commentary. … So when it comes to your core product my personal opinion [is that] it seems to be of pretty high quality.”

 

He and Grygiel clearly did, however, find other Patriot Post viral memes offensive: “One meme mocking vegans,” they (by which I actually mean the two of them) reported, “generated more than 2.9 million shares, reactions, and comments, and another chiding Parkland, Florida, shooting survivor David Hogg attracted more than 2.1 million engagements.”

 

Anti-Vegan – Anti-Hogg TPP Humor

 

My response? The vegan meme was intended as humor, but most Leftists are humorless. And let me state emphatically, the assertion that Hogg is a “shooting survivor” does a disservice to actual survivors, like my friend and Patriot Post writer Roger Helle, who, as a Marine in Vietnam, survived being blown up, shot on two different occasions, and bayoneted — three Purple Hearts. He, not Hogg, is a real “survivor.”

 

When I asked about the motive for and objective of his collaboration with Grygiel, Silverman insisted “straightforwardly there is no intent to reduce your publication’s reach or undermine you.” Their next move will establish if that is true.

 

Another major point of contention in Silverman’s inquiry was our writers’ and editors’ use of pseudonyms, the “Publius” model from The Federalist Papers. This is another unconventional practice, like not taking advertising, which he simply could not grasp.

 

I explained that, since our inception, as noted on our About page, “As was the case with The Federalist (Papers) in 1787, the premier resource for understanding the Liberty and Rule of Law enshrined in our Republic’s Constitution, and from which we derive much of our constitutionally constructionist editorial inspiration, The Patriot Post is published under the pseudonym ‘Publius,’ and many of our editors and advisors are listed likewise.”

 

I noted that as we’ve grown over the years, I began offering new grassroots contributors the opportunity to choose a pseudonym or use their legal name. Some have chosen the latter.

 

Based on his fascination with pseudonyms, I asked Silverman if he’d written about how his publication’s CEO had set up fake websites under the names of real people in order to slander them, including one that attacked Second Amendment advocate John Lott (which Peretti admitted in a legal settlement, including his apology).

 

Silverman responded, “I’m not familiar with the examples … you cited and couldn’t comment on them without more research.”

 

(OK, let me make The Patriot Post research easy for the leftist inquisitors: We are actually a Russian front operated by Markovich Alexanderovich. We set up shop two decades before Trump announced his 2016 candidacy, so we could ensure he would defeat Hillary Clinton.)

 

Another point regarding our decision not to promote personalities… President Ronald Reagan, on his Oval Office desk, kept a small engraved plaque with the words, “There is no limit to what a man can do … if he does not mind who gets the credit.” That simple axiom defined how Reagan conducted his presidency: It was about the ideas, not about him.

 

That same plaque sits in front of my office computer today — where it reminds me, it’s about Liberty, not about us. That’s the “Publius” model, the Reagan principle, and our practice. But again, the MSM self-promoters can’t begin to fathom that principle.

 

Silverman also asked if I would put him in touch with some of the conservative leaders who provided favorable comments about The Patriot Post in years past. I contacted them, and predictably, nobody expressed an interest in talking with anyone associated with BuzzFeed.

 

However, the most widely known of those who offered praise for The Patriot, responded, “They are relentless and use Gestapo tactics.” But these speech-suppression methods are more akin to Stalinist tactics, which are also the inspiration for the “antifa movement” — the self-styled anti-fascists who are actually fascists.

 

The effort of leftists to silence Christians and conservatives, especially grassroots Patriots who promote Liberty, is relentless.

 

But as another notable stalwart advised me to tell our team, “We’re all in this together. Onward!” And onward we go.

 

There was a surfeit of other “misinformation” and “contextual omissions and errors” in the BuzzFeed inquiry.

 

Update: Regarding the Silverman/Grygiel article, as one might expect from tabloid media, they doxed the location of our humble storefront, despite the fact (or because) they knew that created risks to our staff and their families. (They have since removed that information from the article.) They doxed the names of my family members even though they knew there were no financial or material connections with The Patriot Post. (While we know who the Silverman and Grygiel families are, mentioning them would be far beneath our ethical standards.) They implied that we had misused two short quotes about The Patriot Post obtained 15 years ago, but they did not contact the individuals who were quoted. And they implied that our use of pseudonyms is nefarious, despite the fact I have always been easily identifiable through public media interviews, which ironically, is how Silverman knew who to contact. Likewise, the ownership of our company, Publius Press, Inc., has always been a matter of public record. Again, the “Publius principle” has never been about not revealing individuals, but about not promoting individuals.

 

Finally, about my original topic…

 

AF Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro & Marine Sgt Dakota Meyer

 

In stark contrast to Silverman, Grygiel, and their stripe, the evening their inquiries began to post across the Web, I was with friends and colleagues raising support for Honoring the Sacrifice, headed by my young friend Andrew Smith. Andrew also makes the wooden flags we sell to support OEF and OIF disabled vets.

 

Among other wounded veterans helping with this effort were former AF Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro, and Medal of Honor recipient and former Marine Dakota Meyer.

 

I commend for your consideration supporting Honoring the Sacrifice.

 

As always, we ask your prayers for the Lord’s blessing for the protection of and provision for our uniformed Patriots and veterans and their families.

Another Media Bombshell Turns Out To Be A Dud


When the Leftstream media (the word “Mainstream” becoming obsolete) speaks or writes, your first impression always be, “It’s a lie.” Leftist Net-rag BuzzFeed put the last nail in the coffin of credibility with the “Trump suborned perjury and should be impeached” lie.

 

That’s my two-cents.

Another Media Bombshell Turns Out To Be A Dud

 

By Derek Hunter

BuzzFeed Lies

 

Journalism is dead. It wasn’t murder, or old age, it was suicide. Journalism died after drinking a cocktail of contempt, arrogance, ignorance, and enough narrative to kill a whale. Its corpse rolls on, meeting deadlines, publishing stories, and forming cable news panels continuing to extol the virtues of the poisons that killed it. They deserve your skepticism and your contempt.

 

The latest nail in the media’s credibility coffin landed Friday night. It was a bombshell story that declared, “President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.”

 

Subornation of perjury is a serious allegation for a “news” organization to make. At least it has become one in the years since Bill Clinton actually did it with Monica Lewinsky and Democrats didn’t care (it’s amazing what a difference party membership makes). If true, talking heads exclaimed, this would be grounds for impeachment of the President.

 

A second after Buzzfeed, the glorified blog known mostly for clickbait listicles and cat videos, published the allegations all presses were stopped. Newspapers and networks sent their reporters on a quest to verify the story, based on anonymous sources, for themselves. They couldn’t.

 

Normally, if journalism were still a profession with standards, this “bombshell” wouldn’t warrant more than a mention unless and until it was able to be corroborated by someone, even an anonymous someone, by the other organizations. You can’t report on someone else’s anonymous reporting if you can’t get anyone to back it up. But these aren’t normal times.

 

Every outlet ran the story, adding a casual mention of not having (yet) been able to “independently verify” it for themselves. A mere formality; it had to be true, after all, it was a story about Donald Trump, painting him as a criminal – the top item on Christmas lists in newsrooms from coast to coast.

 

All of Friday was consumed by this story and its implications.

 

Meanwhile, no one was able to verify any of it.

 

The two reporters who “broke” the story were immediately booked on cable news to be celebrated as conquering heroes. And they immediately contradicted each other on the crucial question of whether or not they’d actually seen documents proving their story with their own eyes.

 

When CNN asked if he’d seen the proof himself, one reporter named Anthony Cormier said, “No, I have not seen it personally. But the folks we have talked to — two officials we have spoken to, are fully 100% read it, to that aspect of the special counsel’s investigation.”

 

The other reporters, named Jason Leopold, was asked on MSNBC about his partner’s admission and responded, “Over the course of a year we’ve reported pretty extensively on the Trump Moscow project, and we have been — I’ll just say that we’ve seen documents, we’ve been briefed on documents. We’re very confident in our reporting.”

 

One said they hadn’t seen any proof themselves, the other said they did. It can’t be both.

 

No one took a knee when those flags were raised, they all saluted and continued an endless series of hypothetical discussions predicated on a story no one at any news organization could back up. I’d be shocked if several of the participants didn’t win Pulitzer Prizes.

 

Journalism went to Hell courtesy of what its practitioners view as its shining moment – Watergate – and it hasn’t looked back since.

 

As I wrote in my book, “Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein made an untold fortune, were played in a movie by Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman, were showered with awards, and sent many journalists running down the path of fame rather than truth. And fame is the only thing heroin gets addicted to. The thing was, Woodward and Bernstein were real journalists. They reported a real story of corruption, worked sources, uncovered information, checked their facts, and got the story right. In other words, they earned their accolades. Today, too many journalists aren’t interested in doing the work, they just want the rewards.”

 

And there is a lifetime of rewards awaiting whoever claims the scalp under the golden coiffed locks resting atop Donald Trump’s head. Its pursuit has perverted the profession more than anything before it, and this time they thought they had it.

 

Late in the evening on Friday, in an extremely rare move, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office broke their long-standing silence to issue a statement on the story, a strong statement of denial. “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” the statement read.

 

Mueller could have remained silent, could have let the story peter out the way so many others have, but he didn’t. He drove a stake through its heart, rendering the entire day’s news cycle yet another fake news fever dream.

 

How this whole Mueller investigation ultimately plays out is anyone’s guess, anyone telling you otherwise is selling something. But how it’s played out for the media is laid bare for the whole world to see. CNN’s Chris Cuomo put it perfectly when he said, “Mueller didn’t do the media any favors tonight, and he did do the president one, because…this allows them to say, ‘You can’t believe it. You can’t believe what you read, you can’t believe what you hear.”

 

No, Mueller didn’t do the media any favors; it’s not his job to take the media’s side. It’s not the job of the media to have a side, or course. If journalists worry so much about their reputation, maybe they should try to remember that because the rest of us sure will.

Gubarev’s Lawsuit will Expose Mueller Witch-Hunt


John R. Houk

© July 28, 2018

 

Persecutor-in-chief Robert Mueller has found ZERO criminal conspiracy between the Trump Campaign of 2016 and Russians. Or as the Leftist MSM might or should say – NO COLLUSION!

 

Aleksej Gubarev

 

Keeping this in mind, the Steele Dossier fake accusations against Donald Trump also accused Russian owned businesses of criminal hacking in election 2016. One of those accused Russians is tech mogul Aleksej Gubarev owner of Russian tech company XBT Holding which in turn owns Dallas based tech company Webzilla:

 

A report compiled by a former Western intelligence official as opposition research against Trump was made public Tuesday when BuzzFeed posted its 35 pages. The document included unsubstantiated claims of collusion between the Trump campaign team and the Kremlin.

 

It also alleged that global tech firm XBT Holding, with operations in Dallas, was instrumental in the hack of leaked Democratic Party emails that embarrassed Hillary Clinton and fellow Democrats.

 

XBT, owner of Dallas-based enterprise-hosting company Webzilla, is run by a successful Russian tech startup expert, Aleksej Gubarev. In a phone interview from Cyprus, where he said he’d lived since 2002, Gubarev said he was surprised to see his name in the report.

Aleksej Gubarev was not pleased to have his name associated with any kind of criminal election conspiracy. So, he is suing:

 

A Russian tech executive suing BuzzFeed News over the Steele dossier says he is vindicated by special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian nationals allegedly involved in cyber attacks against Democrats.

 

Aleksej Gubarev, the executive, says Mueller’s indictment shows he was not involved in hacks of Democratic National Committee emails, as the dossier alleges.

 

He has filed defamation lawsuits against BuzzFeed News, the website’s editor, Ben Smith and dossier author Christopher Steele. BuzzFeed published the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017. Steele, a former British spy, compiled the dossier as part of an anti-Trump research project funded by the DNC and Clinton campaign.

And Tyler Durden reports:

 

A Russian venture capitalist and tech executive accused in the Steele dossier of “using botnets and porn traffic” to conduct cyberattacks on Democrats says that Friday’s indictment of 12 Russian nationals for hacking the DNC is an “utter vindication,” reports the Daily Caller.

 

 

In order to help defend themselves against Gubarev, BuzzFeed filed a lawsuit against the DNC to force them to hand over information related to the “Steele Dossier” after the DNC ignored a subpoena for proof they were hacked – including “digital remnants left by the Russian state operatives,” as well as a full version of the hacking report prepared by cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike.

 

The DNC notably wouldn’t allow FBI investigators to look at the server, instead relying on the hacking report prepared by CrowdStrike (founded by Russian expat Dimitri Alperovitch – who sits on the very Anti-Russian Atlantic Council along with Evelyn “loose lips” Farkas).

 

“As part of the discovery process, BuzzFeed is attempting to verify claims in the dossier that relate to the hacking of the DNC,” said BuzzFeed spokesman Matt Mittenhal in a statement. “We’re asking a federal court to force the DNC to follow the law and allow BuzzFeed to fully defend its First Amendment rights.”

Aleksej Gubarev recently learned that “District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro ruled that the firm’s client relationships “are not protected from disclosure by the First Amendment even though the opposition research it conducts on behalf of clients may be political in nature.”

 

Although Gubarev may believe Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian GRU spies exonerates him of any complicity, Mueller have opened himself to proof his persecution of Trump is indeed a needless politically motivated witch-hunt.

Federal Judge Orders Fusion GPS To Provide Essential Answers

The Federal judge’s ruling was ‘everything’ that the lawyer for a Russian dot-com executive slandered by Christopher Steele had ‘hoped for.’ After using every legal stalling trick they could think of, the executives of Fusion GPS, including Glenn Simpson, are now compelled to answer key and sensitive questions at the heart of the controversy.

 

Outraged citizens have long been demanding to know how Barack Obama’s Department of Justice was corrupted into a more “Nixonian” political weapon than what happened at the Watergate hotel and now we will get to find out.

 

Unswayed by weak arguments put forth by Fusion GPS and it’s founder Glenn Simpson, District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro ruled that the firm’s client relationships “are not protected from disclosure by the First Amendment even though the opposition research it conducts on behalf of clients may be political in nature.”

 

Ungaro issued a ruling on Tuesday that pleased the American public a lot more than the lawyer for Russian mogul Aleksej Gubarev, but he’s ecstatic. In fact, the ruling has implications for the DNC.

 

Attorney Evan Fray-Witzer happily declared. “This ruling gave us everything that we had hoped for.” It was a long battle. “After a year of trying everything they could think of to avoid being deposed, Fusion is finally going to have to sit down and answer our questions.”

 

Outraged citizens have long been demanding to know how Barack Obama’s Department of Justice was corrupted into a more “Nixonian” political weapon than what happened at the Watergate hotel, and now they will get to find out.

 

As stated in the final order, “Representatives of Fusion GPS must answer a broad array of questions about the opposition research firm’s role in creating, investigating and disseminating the infamous Steele dossier.”

 

For over a year, Gubarev has been trying to interrogate Glenn Simpson and other Fusion GPS management in depositions, which are sessions of sworn testimony that happen in the lawyer’s offices, “to determine the purported factual basis for the dossier’s allegedly defamatory statements.”

 

The underlying defamation suit was filed against left-leaning news outlet BuzzFeed News. It spans two continents with one part filed in London and another filed in Miami, Florida.

 

The trial in Miami is scheduled to get underway this November. In the European half of the case, a British court also recently ruled in Gubarev’s favor, ordering that Christopher Steele will have to take the stand for questioning.

 

Gubarev alleges that Steele “defamed him,” by reporting that two of his companies, XBT Holding S.A. and its subsidiary, Webzilla, hijacked Democratic Party computers “using botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses, plant bugs, steal data and conduct ‘altering operations.’”

 

Steele’s dossier blamed Webzilla for the hack. Now the Democratic National Committee will be deposed and asked to prove it.

 

The DNC has been frantically fighting a subpoena demanding “technical information” that they really don’t want to release.

 

Gubarev told them to fork over anything they might have, backing up their story with “‘clues’ and ‘evidence’ left behind by the cyber-intruders who breached the DNC’s network in 2016.”

 

Ungaro is allowing Gubarev’s attorneys to grill Fusion GPS representatives “about the firm’s dossier clients, its efforts to verify the dossier, its decision to hire dossier author Christopher Steele and its interactions with government officials and media outlets, including BuzzFeed.”

 

It seemed intentional to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and fellow lawmaker Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) that all of Steele’s inflammatory material was leaked to the press, so they are digging into whether “Steele coordinated in any way with employees of the FBI or DOJ,” to leak the dossier to the media.

 

Other big questions that conservative lawmakers are asking are, did “the FBI, DOJ, or Office of National Intelligence” have a copy of the dossier before January 10, 2017; did Senator John McCain get a copy of the dossier’s first 33 pages on or about December 9, 2016 and; “whether, prior to January 10, 2017, Mr. Clapper, Mr. Rogers, Mr. Brennan, and/or Mr. Comey briefed President Obama about the Dossier and provided a synopsis of it.”

 

According to a disillusioned investigator on the Crossfire Hurricane investigation that turned whistleblower, Hillary Clinton was right in the middle of everything.

 

“The dossier and its related dirt was on a circular flight path aboard a courier service called ‘Air Clinton,’ and the FBI kept signing for the packages.”

 

Multiple versions of the same bogus information were hand carried around the globe by known Clinton “operatives” as mutually corroborating “support.”

 

When Peter Strzok’s FBI superiors wanted to know “which one” leaked to BuzzFeed, he told them it had to come from John McCain.

 

“The set is only identical to what McCain had. (it has differences from what was given to us by Corn and Simpson),” Strzok wrote in a recently surfaced email.

 

“Simpson all but acknowledged he and Steele provided the information to McCain ally David Kramer, who provided it to the Arizona senator to forward to the FBI.”

 

Christopher Steele alleged in previous testimony that he warned Kramer that the evidence in his file was “raw intelligence,” when he handed it over.

 

He only wanted McCain to have it for “analyzing, investigating and verifying” the contents and decide if action was “necessary for the purpose of protecting US national security.”

 

It also highlights just how extensively Clinton influenced and directed what would eventually become Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion special investigation.

 

Without checking any of the information, Obama administration officials presented it to the FISA court to get political wiretaps.

 

Strzok’s email also contradicts Glenn Simpson’s prior testimony to Congress under oath. He swore that the FBI didn’t get his copy, only Christopher Steele’s.

 

Former bureau investigators who reviewed Strzok’s text message note that “the FBI is supposed to be immune to manipulation by circular information flows, especially with sensitive investigations such as evaluating whether a foreign power tampered with an American election.”

 

In this case, they explain, “the generally same information kept walking through the FBI’s door for months, recycled each time by a new character with ties to Hillary Clinton or hatred for Trump.”

 

As American Thinker pointed out in anticipation of Inspector General Horowitz’ investigation report, the scheme engineered by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democrat National Committee “is going to make Watergate look like the petty burglary it was.”
