All Dots Connected Validity


John R. Houk

© August 13, 2018

I had a friend request on the MeWe social media (my MeWe profile) where I discovered a repost of a popular chain email. I haven’t figured out how to link to individual MeWe post as yet or I’d share it. I found it on Vonda’s MeWe page if you choose to look for it.

 

If you look around the Web this chain email is all over the place under various names, versions and snippets. I am calling the chain email All Dots Connected based on the first three words on this version.

 

As a Conservative, the chain email is so familiar much of the information you can find here or read from Conservative sources. The thing is though, chain emails are notoriously unreliable for reasons leaning from down-right untrue to partially true, right on through to manipulative propaganda of twisted facts and lies.

 

Indeed, most of the fact checkers (dominated by Leftist ideology) labels this chain email as false. I used to be a devotee of Snopes and Politifact as dependable fact checkers. Then I began to notice the false stamp on facts I knew directly was true or at least mostly true. Here are some posts exposing the Leftist taint of Snopes and Politifact. If you do a little of your own investigating you will probably discover a Leftist taint of most fact checking websites.

 

The fact checking website I currently trust the most is Truth or Fiction.

 

Realizing the bias of fact checkers I decided to do my own look at the chain email All Dots Connected. What I discovered was the post is mostly true. There are some assertions based on one source alone; viz., Roger Stone. Just to be upfront. Stone is berated by the Left as a Right-Wing Conspiracist nut-job. The political Right pundits even question his reliability on many if not most Stone’s line of thinking. You’ll have to decide for yourself on Stone’s credibility.

 

Roger Stone was a one-time campaign advisor for Donald Trump. This placed a target on Stone’s back from the Mueller witch hunt. BUT SURPRISE, just like President Trump, the Mueller hound dogs have found ZERO on Stone as a go-between involving Donald Trump and Russia meddling in the 2016 election:

 

Mr. Mueller, a former FBI director, was appointed in May 2017 to investigate Russia’s alleged involvement, including any potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

 

Mr. Stone, 65, successfully predicted the release of Democratic documents by WikiLeaks during the race and previously claimed to be in contact with the website’s publisher, Julian Assange.

 

“I never received anything including allegedly hacked emails from WikiLeaks or Julian Assange or the Russians or anyone else,” Mr. Stone told ABC News. “[I] never passed them on to Donald Trump or the Trump campaign or anyone else.”

 

Individuals close to Mr. Stone who said they were contacted by Mr. Mueller’s office include Jason Sullivan, his former social media consultant; Andrew Miller, a longtime associate; Randy Credico, a radio host and comedian who personally met with Mr. Assange at his residence in London during the race; and fellow former Trump campaign advisers Sam Nunberg and Michael Caputo. John Kakanis, Mr. Stone’s driver and accountant, was subpoenaed to appear before the special counsel, Reuters previously reported.

 

“CNN reports Mueller probing my personal finances. Reuters reports Mueller subpoenas my current and former associates and now clear my e-mail, text and phone all monitored. My crime? Supporting @realdonaldtrump for President!” Mr. Stone said in a social media post this week.

 

The special counsel’s office declined to comment when reached by The Washington Times. (Mueller team pressing Roger Stone associates in Russian collusion probe: Report; By Andrew Blake; Washington Times; 7/13/18)

 

Currently Mueller is trying to strongarm Stone with investigations that have nothing to do with Russia interfering in the 2016 election. That witch hunt continues on getting anything on President Trump that had nothing to do with Mueller’s mandate to investigate if Trump and Russia worked together to fix the 2016 election cycle.

 

The last part of the chain email All Dots Connected tries to link Rod Rosenstein’s wife Lisa Barsoomian as a potential instrument of the CIA the to take down President Trump. To me, any such link is a huge stretch of the imagination of fantastical speculation. I have little doubt Barsoomian would work with other Deep Staters, but currently there is no connection other than her association with hubby Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller and the Clintons on some kind government basis.

 

AND NOW, All Dots Connected with linked sources, source quotes and personal commentary.

[Found very similar post entitled, “From ’01 to ’05 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation…”; By  SuperCharged2000; Investment Watch Blog; 7/24/18]

 

ALL DOTS CONNECTED…Clinton’s, Mueller, Rosenstein, Comey, Learner, plus secret guests … Let’s PLAY FOLLOW THE TRAIL…
Let’s follow the trail……

 

Here’s what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important……

 

From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

 

A Grand Jury had been empaneled.

 

Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

 

Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared. [The closest corroboration to this assertion is a Daily Mail lengthy article that shows the IRS refused to audit Clinton Foundation during this time period amidst inexplicable fraud schemes in alleged foreign charity work.]

 

Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

 

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002? [Truth or Fiction; 4/25/18]

 

Bet you can’t guess.

 

None other than James Comey.

 

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

 

Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS? [The Real Criminals, a RICO Scheme That Failed; By George McClellan; America Out Loud]

 

Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

 

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

 

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005? [Ibid.]

 

No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

 

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

 

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?

 

I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, but it was Robert Mueller. [Ibid. and FBI.gov]

 

What do all four casting characters have in common?

 

They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation. [How $37 Million from the Clinton Foundation Disappeared in Baltimore; By Charles Ortel; LifeZette; 4/6/18]

 

Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

 

Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

 

Let’s fast forward to 2009……

 

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin. [Exposed: FBI Director James Comey’s Clinton Foundation Connection; By Patrick Howley; Breitbart; 9/10/16]

 

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

 

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of Hillary. [Axios – 10/24/17 AND The Hill – 11/02/17 06:00 AM EDT]

 

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

 

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

 

However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one-hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

 

Ok, no big deal right?

 

Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme. [FBI informant gathered years of evidence on Russian push for US nuclear fuel deals, including Uranium One, memos show; By JOHN SOLOMON; The Hill;  11/20/17 06:11 PM EST]

 

Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame?

 

Yep, Robert Mueller.

 

He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009. [Mueller’s Role in Delivering Uranium to Russians Raises Questions; By Steve Byas; The New American; 8/2/17]

 

Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland? [Russians Bragged About 10 Spies Assigned to Clinton; Mueller, McCabe, and Rosenstein Helped Cover It Up; By C. Mitchell Shaw; The New American; 3/1/18]

 

No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

 

Guess what happened to the informant?

 

The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it. [FBI Informant Testifies, Loretta Lynch Imposed Gag Order To Cover Moscow-Clinton Scheme; By Martin Walsh; Conservative Daily Post; 2/8/18 4:32 PM – Updated 5:16 PM]

 

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

 

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

 

~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal. [What We Know About The Russia-Clinton Uranium One Deal So Far Is Crazy Enough; By James H. Hyde; The Federalist; 12/5/17 –

 

‘The Kazakhstan deal was extremely lucrative for Giustra. He and others, such as Ian Telfer, who according to The New York Times served as Uranium One’s chairman, donated substantial amounts to the Clinton Foundation. In an interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News, Schweizer says, “As this deal was coming for approval in 2010, the Clinton Foundation received [donations] from nine shareholders in this uranium company that was sold to the Russians. None of them all of a sudden decided they were going to donate large amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation, more than $145 million. And by the way, a lot of those donations were never declared publicly by the Clintons, they were hidden.”’]

 

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

 

No other than, Lois Lerner.

 

Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

 

Let’s fast forward to 2015.

 

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

 

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law. [Hillary Clinton didn’t comply with email policies, State Dept IG finds; By CBS/AP; CBSNews.com; 3/25/16 10:56 AM – Updated 1:07 PM EDT:

 

‘”At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act,” the report reads.

 

It goes on to say that Clinton produced 55,000 pages of emails to “mitigate” her failure to preserve the emails, but the inspector general “notes that Secretary Clinton’s production [of 55,000 pages of emails] was incomplete.” The report also says that the 55,000 pages included no emails from the first few months of her tenure as secretary for either received or sent messages.’]

 

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email. [But her emails? You’re dang right her emails; By  Marc A. Thiessen; Chicago Tribune; 6/20/18 4:55 PM:

 

“In fact, the overlooked bombshell of the report is the inspector general’s confirmation that classified information contained in Clinton’s emails was in fact compromised by foreign intelligence services, and that Clinton had recklessly emailed President Barack Obama using her unsecured personal email from the territory of a hostile foreign adversary.”]

 

 (Let’s not forget at least 10 CIA spies in China were killed by the Chinese because of the leaks and god knows what else occurred) [Blog Editor: I could not find a direct link to CIA deaths in China and Crooked Hillary’s illegal private email server. BUT a connect the dots look shows Crooked Hillary’s private may have contributed to Chinese murders of CIA Agents. Here are some dots to consider:

 

A DOT:

 

The classified information found on Secretary Clinton’s email server was quite alarming. For instance, at least 47 of Secretary Clinton’s emails from her basement server contain the notation “B3 CIA PERS/ORG,” which indicates the material referred to CIA personnel or matters related to the agency. Ultimately, the FBI determined that:

 

“110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning [federal agency] to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were “up-classified” to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.” (Critical Cybersecurity Takeaways From Hillary’s Email Debacle; By Stark On IR; CyberSecurityDocket.com; 7/15/16 12:19 pm)

 

A Dot:

 

The Chinese government systematically dismantled C.I.A. spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two years and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward.

 

… Some were convinced that a mole within the C.I.A. had betrayed the United States. Others believed that the Chinese had hacked the covert system the C.I.A. used to communicate with its foreign sources. Years later, that debate remains unresolved.

 

 

Still others were put in jail. All told, the Chinese killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 of the C.I.A.’s sources in China, according to two former senior American officials, effectively unraveling a network that had taken years to build. (Killing C.I.A. Informants, China Crippled U.S. Spying Operations; By Mark MazzettiAdam GoldmanMichael S. Schmidt and Matt Apuzzo; NYT; 5/20/17)

 

A Dot:

 

Clinton and her top aides had access to a Pentagon-run classified network that goes up to the Secret level, as well as a separate system used for Top Secret communications.

 

The two systems — the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) and the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) — are not connected to the unclassified system, known as the Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet). You cannot email from one system to the other, though you can use NIPRNet to send ­emails outside the government.

 

Somehow, highly classified information from SIPRNet, as well as even the super-secure JWICS, jumped from those closed systems to the open system and turned up in at least 1,340 of Clinton’s home emails — including several the CIA earlier this month flagged as containing ultra-secret Sensitive Compartmented Information and Special Access Programs, a subset of SCI.

 

 

As a result of Clinton’s negligence, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in a recent interview he thinks “the odds are pretty high” that hostile foreign powers like Iran, China and Russia hacked Clinton’s homebrew email server and stole US secrets. (Hillary’s team copied intel off top-secret server to email; By Paul Sperry; NY Post; 1/24/16 5:09am)

 

A Dot:

 

Former top FBI lawyer Lisa Page testified during two days of closed-door House hearings, revealing shocking new Intel against her old bosses at the Bureau, according the well-placed FBI sources.

 

 

The embattled Page tossed James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap among others under the Congressional bus, alleging the upper echelon of the FBI concealed intelligence confirming Chinese state-backed ‘assets’ had illegally acquired former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 30,000+ “missing” emails, federal sources said.

 

The Russians didn’t do it. The Chinese did, according to well-placed FBI sources.

 

And while Democratic lawmakers and the mainstream media prop up Russia as America’s boogeyman, it was the ironically Chinese who acquired Hillary’s treasure trove of classified and top secret intelligence from her home-brewed private server.

 

 

Hundreds of top secret documents and even the president’s daily travel and security itineraries were on that server — and intercepted by a communist country — yet the FBI sat on the evidence. Likewise, all of Clinton’s and her inner circle’s outgoing emails were compromised as well, sources confirmed.

 

Even the Inspector General had tipped off the FBI — specifically Strzok — about the foreign breach. Still, no timely case was pursued. (FBI: Lisa Page Dimes Out Top FBI Officials During Classified House Testimony; Bureau Bosses Covered Up Evidence China Hacked Hillary’s Top Secret Emails; By Investigative Bureau; True Pundit; 7/17/18)

 

That is enough Dots for me to connect CIA deaths in China to Crooked Hillary’s illegal private email server.]

 

Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

 

Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

 

Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer? [Blog Editor:

 

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

 

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel.

 

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

 

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

 

According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

 

In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department. (Exposed: FBI Director James Comey’s Clinton Foundation Connection; By Patrick Howley; Breitbart; 9/10/16)

 

Most of the Left-Wing fact checkers dispute the direct connection between Comey, Lockheed Martin and Crooked Hillary. The Leftists twist the dots with a “FALSE” disregarding the linkage between dot to claim no direct connection means it didn’t happen. The most neural fact checker – Truth or Fiction – says the facts are correct but those facts do not provide a provable direct link, hence labels the linkage as misleading – HERE and HERE.]

 

No other than James Comey.

 

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

 

Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her. [Blog Editor: This should sound familiar:

 

“The U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI began an investigation into the IRS controversy in May 2013.[30] In October 2015, the DOJ announced it was closing the investigation and would not seek criminal charges.[1] The determination came after an investigation of almost two years, in which the DOJ and FBI interviewed more than 100 witnesses and reviewed more than a million pages of IRS documents.[1]

 

In a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Republican of Virginia, announcing the case closure, Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Peter J. Kadzik wrote that while “our investigation uncovered substantial evidence of mismanagement, poor judgment, and institutional inertia…Not a single IRS employee reported any allegation, concern or suspicion that the handling of tax-exempt applications—or any other IRS function—was motivated by political bias, discriminatory intent, or corruption.”[1] Kadzik wrote “We found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt, or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.”[31] Kadzik stated that the investigation specifically absolved Lerner of criminal liability, and determined that Lerner was in fact the first official to recognize a problem and try and correct it.[1][32] (FBI finds no evidence to support criminal prosecution; Wikipedia; page was last edited on 6/18/18, at 03:09 (UTC)”)]

 

Nope…. couldn’t find any crimes there.

 

Can you guess what happened next?

 

In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy. [Blog Editor:

 

“Former FBI Director James Comey started to draft a statement exonerating Hillary Clinton in the bureau’s investigation into her use of a private email server before the FBI interviewed her or her key witnesses, the Senate Judiciary Committee said Thursday.

 

“Conclusion first, fact-gathering second — that’s no way to run an investigation. The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Judiciary Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in a letter to the FBI.

 

The Judiciary Committee reviewed transcripts, which were heavily redacted, indicating Comey began drafting the exoneration statement in April or May 2016, before the FBI interviewed up to 17 key witnesses, including Clinton and some of her close aides. (James Comey started drafting statement exonerating Hillary Clinton before FBI interviewed her, aides; By Melissa Quinn; Washington Examiner; 8/31/17 01:40 PM)]

 

They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

 

Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016 and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing. [Blog Editor:

Can you see the pattern?

 

It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

 

FISA Abuse, political espionage….. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others did it.

 

All the same players.

 

All compromised and conflicted.

 

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

 

All connected in one way or another to the Clintons.

 

They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

 

How many lives have these two destroyed?

 

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

 

Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. [Report: Comey’s Brother Works for the Law Firm That Handles Clinton Foundation’s Taxes; By June; Gateway Pundit; 5/12/17]

 

And,

See the person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies? Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.

 

WHO IS LISA BARSOOMIAN?

 

Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background. [Blog Editor: Much of the information below is based on Roger Stone posts. Incidentally, Stone’s website is under a red McAfee alert warning:

 

“Site Report

 

Here’s why stonecoldtruth.com/muller-rosenstein-and-comey-the-three-amigos-from-the-deep-state/ is dangerous

 

We regularly scan sites for suspicious and malicious activity — and this one just isn’t safe. You’ll find more details below.

 

 

One should consider if the McAfee alert is Left-Wing based or is actually infected with malicious content harmful to one’s computer. Nevertheless, many Conservative websites reference the Stone post and those websites are not under a McAfee alert.]

 

Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller. [Blog Editor:

 

“Enter Lisa Barsoomian, wife of Rod Rosenstein. Lisa is a high-powered attorney in Washington, DC, who specializes in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the Intelligence Communities. She works for R. Craig Lawrence, an attorney who has represented Robert Mueller three times, James Comey five times, Barack Obama forty-five times, Kathleen Sebelius fifty-six times, Bill Clinton forty times, and Hillary Clinton seventeen times between 1991 and 2017.

 

Barsoomian participated in some of this work personally and has herself represented the FBI at least five separate times. It would be great to research the specifics of the cases she worked in, but many of the documents from the Court Dockets relating to these cases have been removed from the D.C. District and Appeals Court, including records of her representation for Clinton in 1998’s case Hamburg. V. Clinton.

 

The “Three Amigos” have surprisingly obvious conflicts of interest in their past and current investigatory responsibilities. Mueller even acted as a delivery boy for Hillary’s State Department, hand transporting ten grams of highly enriched uranium under the auspices of counter-terror. Was it a coincidence that this happened at the same time as Hillary and her associate John Podesta were nurturing the Uranium One deal that would see Russia take control over 20% of America’s proven uranium reserves? Shortly after the Russia uranium deal closed, the Clinton Foundation was showered with many millions of dollars from Russian donors.” (The “Truth” Part III: The Three Amigos; By Dan Newman; Truth News Network; 8/9/18)

 

And more:

 

“But the biggest reason why Rosenstein should recuse himself is that his wife was mentored by both Comey and Mueller and has been involved in many cases representing the FBI and Democrats involved in this case.

 

Roger Stone reported the following on Lisa Barsoomian in 2017:

 

Enter Lisa Barsoomian, wife of Rod Rosenstein.  Lisa is a high-powered attorney in Washington, DC, who specializes in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the Deep State, err, I mean, the Intelligence Communities.

 

Lisa Barsoomian works for R. Craig Lawrence, an attorney who has represented Robert Mueller three times, James Comey five times, Barack Obama forty-five times, Kathleen Sebelius fifty-six times, Bill Clinton forty times, and Hillary Clinton seventeen times between 1991 and 2017.

Her loyalties are clearly with the entities that make up the Deep State, as are her husbands.” (GRAHAM PUTS PRESSURE ON ROSENSTEIN FOR HIS PART IN THE MUELLER PROBE – BUT HERE’S WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW; By STEVEN AHLE; Steadfast and Loyal; 6/3/18)

 

And more:

 

Senator Lindsey Graham sent a letter on Thursday to Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about whether Rosenstein should recuse himself from the Mueller investigation due to his obvious conflicts with the case.

Graham should also request information about Rosenstein’s wife who represented the Clintons in the past.

Graham, in the May 31-dated letter, cited reports that Mueller’s investigation is looking at whether President Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey – and the fact that Trump relied on a Rosenstein-authored memo to justify the firing.  Rosenstein’s role was further detailed in a New York Times report earlier this week on a memo written by ousted FBI official Andrew McCabe.

Fox News has confirmed that the memo described a meeting where Rosenstein claimed Trump had asked him to reference Russia in his recommendation to fire Comey. Rosenstein declined, and instead focused on Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe. Trump pushed back on the account Thursday.  “Not that it matters but I never fired James Comey because of Russia! The Corrupt Mainstream media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!” Trump tweeted.

Rosenstein’s wife, Lisa Barsoomian, represented Bill Clinton in a case in the 1990’s.  This alone should be enough for Rosenstein to be unqualified for any role related to the Clintons, Obama or their cronies.

Roger Stone reported the following on Lisa Barsoomian in 2017 –

Enter Lisa Barsoomian, wife of Rod Rosenstein.  Lisa is a high-powered attorney in Washington, DC, who specializes in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the Deep State, err, I mean, the Intelligence Communities.

… Rosenstein’s wife is enough reason for him to recuse himself! (Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein’s Wife Also Has Extensive Ties to the Clintons, Mueller and Comey; Posted by Jim Hoft – Written by Joe Hoft; Gateway Pundit; 6/2/18)

 

Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998. [Hamburg v. Clinton documents of on Scribd.]

 

Lawrence also represented:

 

Robert Mueller three times;

James Comey five times;

Barack Obama 45 times;

Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;

Bill Clinton 40 times; and

Hillary Clinton 17 times.

 

Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

 

You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the

work history of this Barsoomian woman?

 

Apparently someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?). [Blog Editor: Honestly, the only reference to a Barsoomian document purge of any sort are the many versions (and there are many) of this chain email. Ergo, either the statement is accurate OR no such purge ever took place.]

 

Someone out there cares so much that the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian. [Blog Editor: This statement is blatantly false or I would not be able what I have discovered my own to this point.]

 

Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative. [Blog Editor: Unsubstantiated speculation undoubtedly based on the CIA’s reputation] Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. [Blog Editor: I found this relating to Barsoomian and FOIA:

 

‘In 2000, she represented the FBI in a case that involved “a Freedom of Information Act request submitted by the Electronic Privacy Information Center,” according to Wired. An ABC News story stated: “Government lawyer Lisa Barsoomian contended the group’s request for a court order was moot because the FBI had agreed to expedite its review.”

 

She was also involved in a Freedom of Information case involving a prisoner.’ (Lisa Barsoomian, Rod Rosenstein’s Wife: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know; By Jessica McBride; Heavy.com; Updated 7/9/18 2:52pm)

 

From what I could discover on the fly about Lisa Barsoomian and FOIA is she overwhelming represented the FBI. The only specific FOIA/CIA/Barsoomian action I found are primarily quotes of this chain email without naming the specific reference requested.]

 

And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health.

 

This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities. Blog Editor: Again, unsubstantiated speculation.]

 

It’s a cover, so big deal right? I mean what does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?

 

It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14-month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and the Russians.

 

Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?

 

BECAUSE….

 

She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE….That’s why!!

 

GET THIS INFORMATION OUT TO EVERYONE YOU CAN.

 

Jaw dropping, shocking and extremely sad that this info has never been exposed-

 

DO YOUR PART IN PLASTERING THIS INFORMATION EVERYWHERE …. it’s bullet proof and cannot be blown off by leftists … and will convince many not paying attention that we have a soft coup happening now..

 

GLP powers activate …. get this all over the net and email
Boxes. [Blog Editor: Being a Baby-Boomer, I have no idea what “GLP” means. I’m guessing it has to do with getting the info out far and wide.]

Former CIA Agent Kevin Shipp: ‘Indictments Are Coming…Trump Cannot Be Bribed’


Kevin Shipp is a former CIA Officer. Why should you care? I found an interview in which Shipp is confidant an indictment is in the works that implicates Crooked Hillary and others.

 

As a Conservative who believes the Clintons have escaped justice for decades, this welcome news. As a person that observed all elitist Dems skate away from even the most obvious crimes, I’ll believe it when I see it.

 

And yet Shipp’s credentials lend some hope he is correct:

 

Kevin Shipp is a retired CIA spook and whistleblower. He has exposed the US deep state and charged the CIA with systematically use of unconstitutional and illegal measures to terrorise employees to prevent them from becoming whistleblowers. He has also charged that “Hillary Clinton was running and is running a global financial criminal syndicate. She was using these secret servers to conduct Clinton financial money laundering business.”[1]

 

Background

 

Shipp was born in Laramie, Wyoming, but his family moved to Falls Church, Virginia, where he has spent most of his subsequent life. He studied at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, where studied biology. Later he also obtained a master’s degree in forensic psycho physiology at the Department of Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment.[citation needed]

 

Career

 

“Kevin Shipp, former CIA Officer and Anti Terrorism expert, held several high level positions in the CIA. He was assigned as a protective agent for the Director of Central Intelligence, a counterintelligence investigator, team leader protecting sensitive CIA assets from assassination, manager of high risk Counter Terrorism Center protective operations, lead instructor for members of allied governments, internal staff security investigator and a polygraph examiner tasked with protecting the CIA from foreign agent penetration. He is the recipient of two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, three Exceptional Performance Awards and a Medallion for overseas covert operations. Shipp also supervised the Department of State Anti Terrorism Assistance program and managed the protective detail assigned to the president of Afghanistan following the US invasion.”[2][3]

Former CIA Agent Kevin Shipp: ‘Indictments Are Coming…Trump Cannot Be Bribed’

Freedom Outpost

 

Shipp says that what Hillary Clinton did with her charity and Uranium One while she was Secretary of State was a crime for the history books.  Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton used this to launder money in foreign banks so it wasn’t subject to U.S. laws, congressional subpoenas, or FOIA demands for the evidence.  This was done to launder this money globally into the Clinton Foundation so the U.S. government could not examine it at all.”

++++++

Whistleblower and former CIA officer Kevin Shipp stated clearly that indictments are coming for Hillary Clinton and the deep state because Donald Trump cannot be bribed.  In an interview with USA Watchdog‘s Greg Hunter, Shipp says this deep state espionage will eventually be exposed to the public.

 

During his discussion with Hunter, Shipp says that what Hillary Clinton did with her charity and Uranium One while she was Secretary of State was a crime for the history books.  Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton used this to launder money in foreign banks so it wasn’t subject to U.S. laws, congressional subpoenas, or FOIA demands for the evidence.  This was done to launder this money globally into the Clinton Foundation so the U.S. government could not examine it at all.”

How did Hillary Clinton get away with obvious crime with her unprotected server and the shady Uranium One deal? Shipp says, “The most bizarre thing is the people who protected her from clear felonious activity and violations of the Espionage Act. James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, was protecting her and leaking things to the media and lying. You had John Brennan, Director of the CIA, protecting her by starting a false investigation (on Trump) and stirring things up with this (false/unverified) dossier. You had James Comey, Director of the FBI, protecting her. . . . Then, you’ve got Peter Strzok protecting her, and now it appears the United Kingdom GCHQ was using NSA information to target Donald Trump and protect Hillary Clinton. You have to ask yourself READ THE REST]

 

“Obviously [Hillary’s]  not stupid, she is diabolical,” says Shipp of Hillary Clinton’s decision to have an unsecured server as Secretary of State. “She knew darn well what she was doing…the Clinton Foundation is a global crime syndicate.”

 

Shipp continued saying, “we just found out recently that…at least 30,000 of her emails went to a foreign entity that was not on any of the distribution lists…they’re trying to figure out who that is now…this reeks of espionage to me.”

 

“The most bizarre thing is the people who protected her from clear felonious activity and violations of the Espionage Act.  James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, was protecting her and leaking things to the media and lying.  You had John Brennan, Director of the CIA, protecting her by starting a false investigation (on Trump) and stirring things up with this (false/unverified) dossier.  You had James Comey, Director of the FBI, protecting her. . . . Then, you’ve got Peter Strzok protecting her, and now it appears the United Kingdom GCHQ was using NSA information to target Donald Trump and protect Hillary Clinton.  You have to ask yourself what kind of power or connections does this woman have to get all of these members of the Deep State, Shadow Government to risk their own criminal penalties to protect her and try to get her elected?  That is the Shadow Government.  That is the Deep State.  That is what is so chilling about this whole thing. . . . This is deep.  This is dark.  This is as dark as it gets, and this is the biggest espionage case involving government officials in the history of this country.” -Kevin Shipp

 

Hunter then brings up the concerns most Americans have: no one will go to jail because the government will never implicate themselves. In response, Shipp points out that, this time, it will not be business as usual for the “Deep State and Shadow Government.”  It is possible that the people involved in this massive espionage case will charges. They are going to be brought to justice because Shipp says, “indictments are coming because of Donald Trump coming into the White House from the outside.  Trump cannot be bribed.

12 Indicted Russians, Helsinki and Russian Conspiracy


John R. Houk

© July 18, 2018

 

On July 13, Special Counsel Robert Mueller signed off on an Eleven Count Indictment against these Russian nationals purportedly to be members of Russian military Intelligence (aka GRU MORE DETAIL):

 

  • VIKTOR BORIS OVICH

 

  • BORIS ALEKSEYEVICH ANTONOV

 

  • DMITRIY SERGEYEVICH BADIN

 

  • IVAN SERGEYEVICH YERMAKOV

 

  • ALEKSEY VIKTOROVICH LUKASI

 

  • SERGEY ALEKSANDROVICH MORGACHEV

 

  • NIKOLAY YURYEVICH KOZACHEK

 

  • PAVEL VYACHESLAVOVICH YERSHOV

 

  • ARTEM ANDREYEVICH MALYSHEV

 

  • ALEKSANDR VLADIMIROVICH OSAD CHUK

 

  • ALEKSEY ALEKSANDROVICH POTEMKIN

 

  • ANATOLIY SERGEYEVICH KOVALEV

 

The Eleven Counts:

 

  • COUNT ONE: Conspiracy to Commit an Offense Against the United States

 

  • COUNTS TWO THROUGH NINE: Aggravated Identity Theft

 

  • COUNT TEN: Conspiracy to Launder Money

 

  • COUNT ELEVEN: Conspiracy to Commit an Offense Against the United States

 

After each count there are alleged details of the alleged crimes – 29 pages worth.

 

Isn’t it interesting Mueller doesn’t use some form of legalese claiming there was a conspiracy to hack the 2016 election with the cooperation with the Trump Campaign?

 

Kim DotCom claims the allegations in the indictment are very flimsy. The Gateway Pundit claims Kim DotCom said this:

 

In late May 2017 internet entrepreneur Kim DotCom claimed to have evidence that former DNC worker Seth Rich was involved in the leaked emails released by WikiLeaks.

 

Kim DotCom shared that he was willing to come to the US and give testimony if it is required.

 

Then Kim DotCom’s lawyers sent a letter to Robert Mueller saying he would come testify in the US and would provide evidence to the Investigation.

 

Kim DotCom

 

Kim DotCom later said trusting Mueller was a mistake and that the special counsel was out to destroy President Trump.

 

On Friday Kim DotCom responded to the latest Mueller indictments of another 12 Russian operatives.

 

Kim DotCom says the evidence in the indictment doesn’t survive a giggle test. Kim DotCom added today’s indictment confirmed that Mueller cannot be trusted.

 

Kim DotCom: Deep State indictment against Russian DNC hackers is so light on evidence that the DOJ should place a Weight Watchers logo on the front page. #ZeroCalories

Mueller knows that his PR stunt will never be tested in Court. The ‘Russian Conspirators’ will never see a US Court room.

 

(Kim DotCom: I Was Warned Not to Turn Over Seth Rich Evidence to Mueller; By Jim Hoft; The Gateway Pundit; 7/14/18)

 

Kim DotCom’s maintains DNC servers weren’t so much hacked but shared by Crooked Hillary campaign staffer Seth Rich. Rich was mysteriously murdered on the DC streets.

 

The Mueller indictments are the basis for the Leftist MSM and many Republicans are screaming and Crying President Trump has committed treason by meeting with Putin. After all, the indicted GRU Officers were under the direction of Vladimir Putin, right?

 

What really chapped the Trump-haters hide was not only did President Trump meet with Putin, but said he believed the Russian thug’s claim Russia did not interfere in the 2016 election cycle.

 

In all honesty, my gut tells me Putin is pitching a load of crap, ergo I am not pleased with Trump’s agreement with Putin. On the other hand, I believe President Trump did not want insult Putin publicly out of the hope he could work out some kind of geopolitical deal with Russia that would benefit the USA.

 

I believe Trump wheeling and dealing with Putin blew up in President Trump’s face, misjudging the stakes of any deal. Is a mistake an act of treason? HECK NO!

 

Indeed, President Trump the next day wisely walked back not pointing a finger at Russia. In a public statement on Tuesday the President admitted he erred in has grammar. Here’s the statement explaining his verbal error:

 

VIDEO: President Donald Trump: I Have “Full Faith And Support” For U.S. Intelligence Agencies | NBC News

 

Posted by NBC News

Published on Jul 17, 2018

 

During a meeting with members of Congress, President Trump clarified his statements during his summit with Russian President Putin in Helsinki when he cast doubt on the findings of U.S. intelligence agencies on Russian election interference. Trump said he misspoke and assured that he has “full faith and support” in American intelligence. He said he accepts the conclusion of Russian interference, but also diverted the blame to “other people” as well. READ THE REST

 

Mueller is closer to committing treason by obstructing Congressional inquiries into his Special Counsel team’s motives of trying to create evidence – NOTHING THERE – to form the basis for impeachment proceedings. Faking evidence is in essence the actions of coup against the Executive Branch of Trump’s Administration. AGAIN, giving credence of a Deep State operating in our government’s Executive Branch.

 

Here are some legit investigative reporting excerpts the Leftist MSM is still completely ignoring:

 

Former FBI Director James Comey asserted Thursday evening that he did not know beyond news reports that Hillary Clinton‘s campaign had paid for research that led to a dossier of unverified allegations about President Trump‘s ties to Russia.

 

“When did you learn that the [Democratic National Committee] DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign had funded Christopher Steele’s work?” Fox News anchor Brett Baier asked Comey on “Special Report,” referring to the dossier compiled by Steele, a former British spy.

 

“I still don’t know that for a fact,” Comey responded. “I’ve only seen it in the media. I never knew exactly which Democrats had funded. I knew it was funded first by Republicans.”

 

“That’s not true,” Baier interjected, referring to funding by Republicans.

 

“My understanding is that his work started … as oppo research funded by Republicans,” Comey maintained, adding the activity was “then picked up by Democrats opposed to Donald Trump.”

 

The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative publication, confirmed to the House Intelligence Committee in October that it originally funded the Trump project through the opposition research firm Fusion GPS.

 

The project until that point had focused on researching multiple Republican presidential candidates and was not looking at collusion with Russia, the Free Beacon said.

 

The Free Beacon maintained that none of the work product it received from Fusion GPS appeared in the dossier and the publication said it did not pay for any work performed by Steele, suggesting he became involved after the publication stopped funding the project. (Comey on Clinton camp paying for Trump dossier: ‘I still don’t know that for a fact’; By JULIA MANCHESTER; The Hill; 4/26/18 08:31 PM EDT)

 

Follow the money:

 

Steele — a former British spy and a Russia expert — was working on contract to Fusion GPS, a Washington-based public-relations firm, which, in turn, was on contract to a D.C. law firm, which, in turn, was on contract to the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. Steele, that is to say, was working for Hillary Clinton. His job, among other things, was to collect opposition research on Trump from his network of Russian sources.

 

When Steele arrived in Rome, his famous “dossier” did not exist. The dossier, as we have come to know it, is some 17 reports that he compiled between June and December 2016. In early July, Steele had been working on the Clinton account for only a few weeks and had written but one report, dated June 20. (The Real Collusion Story; By MICHAEL DORAN; National Review; 3/13/18 6:30 AM)

 

Dems and Crooked Hillary Fingerprints:

 

A significant part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s basis for investigating the Trump campaign’s Russia ties is looking more and more like a political hit job carried out by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. Her campaign’s fingerprints are on at least three separate pieces of information fed to the FBI, including the Christopher Steele dossier Republicans say formed the basis of a secret warrant obtained to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

 

A former State Department official confirmed on the record Thursday that Clinton associates were funneling information to Steele as he was compiling a dossier commissioned and paid for by the Clinton campaign and DNC. That’s on top of the recent revelation that a top Department of Justice official fed the FBI information compiled by his wife, who was working for the firm Clinton and the DNC were paying to dig up dirt on Trump, Fusion GPS.

 

 

“It is troubling enough that the Clinton Campaign funded Mr. Steele’s work, but that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele allegations raises additional concerns about his credibility,” Sens. Chuck Grassley, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, and Lindsey Graham wrote in the letter referring Steele to the FBI for a criminal investigation. (Hillary Clinton’s Fingerprints Are All Over The FBI’s Investigation Into Trump’s Russia Ties; By Rachel Stoltzfoos; The Federalist; 2/10/18)

 

If Mueller was truly a neutral Special Counsel, he would not only focus on the Trump Administration and Campaign in a conspiracy with Russians to win the election. There is plenty of evidence suggesting Crooked Hillary’s campaign committed conspiracy with Russian government to sway the election.

 

There is certainly the appearance that Crooked Hillary solicited Trump dirt from Russian operatives. Christopher Steele alleges the information on his discredited Dossier had Russian sources. Crooked Hillary’s campaign paid for that Dossier making that an act of conspiracy that involved the Russian government.

 

I am confidently certain Putin is a thuggish liar in proclaiming no meddling in the U.S. election process (and other American National Interest agendas). Nonetheless Putin threw a Russian monkey wrench at the Leftist MSM and the Democratic National Committee. He accused the DNC of receiving $400 MILLION contribution from nefarious Russian sources:

 

While the mainstream media, Democrats and the Never-Trump crowd clutched their pearls over President Trump and Vladimir Putin’s summit on Monday, a major bombshell was overlooked.

 

During the highly publicized joint press conference the Russian President not only called US. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s bluff on the indictment of 12 Russian officials, but blasted former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton for nefarious activities.

 

Putin said that he’d welcome U.S. officials to Russia to probe further into alleged Russia-Trump collusion. He also referenced Bill Broward, a U.S. born, London-based banker who’s been accused of improper donations to Democrats.

 

Putin suggested that perhaps, the Russians need an investigation of their own in regard to Broward:

 

For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case.  Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country.

 

They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton.  Well that’s their personal case.

  

Well that’s their personal case.  It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal.

 

 So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions.  So we have an interest in questioning them.

Broward has a complicated history with Fusion GPS, the group hired by the DNC and Hillary Clinton to concoct the now infamous Trump dossier.

See Also: PUTIN CLAIMS $400 MILLION FUNNELED TO HILLARY CAMPAIGN; WND; 7/16/18)

 

Finally, after Mueller indicted 12 Russian spies in an obvious propaganda campaign to make the dump Trump crowd happy, Rep. Devon Nunes had some relevant insight about Mueller and the FBI:

 

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) slammed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russians accused of hacking activities during the 2016 presidential election because it only focuses on efforts to disrupt operations of Democratic Party campaign apparatuses.

 

Appearing on Fox News Nunes told host Maria Bartiromo that his House committee learned of the Russian meddling found in the Mueller indictments over a year ago and was included in his committee’s report months ago.

 

“It’s great that they indicted Russians — yes, they did bad things. They’re always up to bad things. We know that. They have very sophisticated intelligence capabilities in Russia. And they’re always — they’re constantly attacking the United States and our allies. However, in the indictment, they leave out some really important people that they also went after, so the indictment plays like they are only going after the Democrats, when Bob Mueller and all his investigators and his lawyers know for a fact that they also targeted Republicans. Why is that not in the indictment? It makes the indictment look ridiculous.”

 

 

Watch the interview here:

 

 

 

READ ENTIRETY (Nunes: ‘Ridiculous’ Mueller indictment ignores Russian efforts to hack GOP; By Larry O’Connor; Washington Times; 7/16/18)

 

You know, I’ve had a great respect for the FBI apart from the DOJ. I’ve listened to Conservative commentators repeat over and over how the FBI rank-and-file are law enforcement with integrity and all the existing corruption has been inherent in the FBI management/leadership. I gotta tell ya though, I beginning to think leadership corruption has been so pervasive that I gotta believe the corruption has filtered down to the rank-and-file.

 

If there hasn’t been any filter-down corruption, where in the heck is the mountain of integrity coming as one-voice to spill the beans on crooked leadership?

 

Especially since the Obama years, law enforcement and Intelligence operations in the Executive Branch have become so politicized, it is no wonder that Conservatives as myself are seeing the manifestation of a rogue Deep State in operation. A Deep State concept is something that had been relegated to fringe Conspiracy Theory like the Illuminati.

 

Not anymore. It is becoming obvious there is a corrupt government within the government.

Brennan squirming over the fallout from his seditious rhetoric?


My fellow Trump supporters, I’m certain you have been upset as much I for Deep State Leftists openly threatening the President of the United States for his swamp emptying efforts (which is not moving fast enough). The Leftist hubris truly showed its ugly head when the lying (coup encouraging) criminal Andrew McCabe was not only removed from the position of Deputy Director of the FBI but was also fired when lying under oath and criminal leaks to the Leftist MSM became undeniable.

 

Enter former CIA Director John Brennan (one-time devotee CPUSA voter of Gus Hall (SEE ALSO HERE) and rumored Muslim convert). Brennan not only criticized President Trump in a vile manner but also hinted at a coup to remove the President from Office.

 

Dee Fatouros cross posted a very erudite exposition of Brennan treachery from The American Spectator. I am crossing Fatouros’ post because I like her introduction.

Brennan squirming over the fallout from his seditious rhetoric?

The Realistic Observer

 

John Brennan

 

Well John, for someone in your position, openly calling for a coup is not the brightest of ideas. Your iniquities have gone far beyond “just” lying under oath.  Like most dwellers in the DC muck and mire, the more exposed you are, the more unhinged you become.

Ten years ago, the lawlessness and treason which occurred under the previous administration was unfathomable.

With the election of the new president, we now have well funded seditious activity to a degree not ever seen before.

Is this now the new normal? Will every newly elected administration face rebellion, anarchy and chaos if the “powers that be” do not agree with the electorate?

If the lefty elites have their way, you, you betcha.

The following article adds another chapter to the Chronicles of John Brennan.

 

As his plot to destroy Trump backfires, his squeals grow louder.

 

Facebook It was the Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky who coined the phrase the “dustbin of history.” To his political opponents, he sputtered, “You are pitiful, isolated individuals! You are bankrupts. Your role is played out. Go where you belong from now on — into the dustbin of history!”

It is no coincidence that John Brennan, who supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party in the 1970s (he has acknowledged that he thought his vote for its presidential candidate Gus Hall threatened his prospects at the CIA; unfortunately, it didn’t), would borrow from Trotsky’s rhetoric in his fulminations against Donald Trump. His tweet last week, shortly after the firing of Andrew McCabe, reeked of Trotskyite revolutionary schlock: “When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America… America will triumph over you.”

America will triumph over a president it [sic] elected? That’s the raw language of coup, and of course it is not the first time Brennan has indulged it. In 2017, he was calling for members of the executive branch to defy the chief executive. They should “refuse to carry out” his lawful directives if they don’t agree with them, he said.

Trump has said that the Russians are “laughing their asses off” over the turmoil caused by Obamagate. No doubt many of the laughs come at the sight of Brennan, a supporter of Soviet stooges like Gus Hall, conducting a de facto coup from the top of the CIA and then continuing it after his ouster. Who needs Gus Hall when John Brennan is around? This time the Russians don’t even have to pay for the anti-American activity.

Another hardcore leftist, Samantha Power, who spent the weeks after Trump’s victory rifling through intelligence picked up on his staff, found Brennan’s revolutionary tweet very inspiring. “Not a good idea to piss off John Brennan,” she wrote. Sounded pretty dark and grave. But not to worry, she tweeted later. She just meant that the former CIA director was going to smite Trump with the power of his “eloquent voice.”

Out of power, these aging radicals can’t help themselves. They had their shot to stop Trump, they failed, and now they are furious. The adolescent coup talk grows more feverish with each passing day. We have a former CIA director calling for the overthrow of a duly elected president, a former attorney general (Eric Holder) calling for a “knife fight,” a Senate minority leader speaking ominously about what the intelligence community might do to Trump (“they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer has said), and assorted former FBI and CIA officials cheering for a coup, such as CNN’s Phil Mudd who says, “You’ve been around for 13 months. We’ve been around since 1908. I know how this game is going to be played. We’re going to win.”

In all this unhinged chatter, the partisan origins of Obamagate become clearer. The same anti-Trump hatred on display in their tweets and punditry drove the political espionage. James Kallstrom, the former FBI Assistant Director, notes that the “animus and malice” contained in Brennan’s tweet is “prima facie exposure of how he felt about Trump before the election.”

All the key figures in the decision to open up a probe on Trump wanted him to lose — from Brennan to Peter Strzok, whose anti-Trump machinations included, according to the latest batch of texts with his mistress, plotting to manipulate a buddy on the FISA court. In one text, he wonders if he can finagle a meeting with his friend by inviting him to a “cocktail party.” The impropriety aforethought on display in that tweet is staggering, but of course the media has paid no attention to it, preoccupied as it is with Andrew McCabe’s retirement income.

McCabe, by the way, has removed all doubts about his capacity for partisan lying with his post-firing statement, which rests entirely upon it. With all of its anti-Trump special pleading, the statement reads like it was cobbled together by Rachel Maddow. Like so many other ruling-class frauds, McCabe seeks absolution for his perjury and leaking through liberal politics. I stand with the liberal powerful against Trump, you can’t touch me — that’s the upshot of his defense. Comey has taken the same tack. The title of his forthcoming book should be: How the Law Doesn’t Apply to the Self-Appointed Ruling Class.

What an amazing collection of entitled creeps, who long ago convinced themselves that the “rule of law” is identical to what they see as their sacred right to exercise power in any way they see fit. All the blather about Trump’s violation of the law is simply a projection of their own lawlessness. So far the coup has been thwarted. They had hoped to stop him in the campaign through political espionage. But that didn’t work. Then they tried to upend him through spying during the transition, holding out hope until the very last moment, as evidenced by Susan Rice penning her sham exculpatory note only after Trump’s swearing-in. Now they join Brennan in seeking to bury Trump in Mueller’s dustbin.

Trotsky would have understood the shorthand of all the tweets, polemics, and posturing perfectly. Nothing in this show trial bears any relationship to reality or justice. It is simply an expression of power politics, which doesn’t always end well for its exponents. As even an old Gus Hall supporter like John Brennan must know, and perhaps his fulminating panic indicates a dawning awareness of it, those who talk the loudest about their enemies heading for the ash heap of history often end up in it.

“We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.” Ayn Rand

 

While it is true that our “leaders” have been lying to us for decades, the current administration has elevated it to Orwellian proportions. The double think, news speak, prevarication, obstructionism, and out right perfidy that comes out of Washington D.C. is heart stopping.

Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Extortion 17 are just a few of the major lies and cover-ups pushed by D.C.

Executive over reach, and Congressional abdication of authority over to the bureaucratic alphabet agencies is in itself a scandalous breach of trust with its constituents.

The unbridled national debt wrought upon us by those in office is Cloward Piven on steroids, and its ramifications will be devastating.

Last but not least is the use of the IRS as a tool for punishment and harassment of those who are on the wrong side of the administration’s political fence.

The harsh reality is that the America many of us grew up in and took for granted has now become a fascist state. We need to do our best to climb out of any boxes we may be in, thoroughly examine any assumptions we may be carrying, and search for the truth, bitter though it may be.

Knowledge is power. Even though we may feel powerless and may not see a restoration of our great country within our life time, we will hold and guard the truth so as to pass it on to future generations. They will then have the necessary knowledge to reclaim America when the time presents itself… 

 

‘My Secret Life in the CIA’: Undercover in the War on Terror


Michele Rigby Assad: Former CIA Turned Agent for God

 

Michele Rigby Assad was a CIA agent that the three-letter spy organization needs more of the like. Here’s a brief bio from thefeddagency.com:

 

BIO

 

Michele Rigby Assad is a former undercover officer in the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency’s Directorate of Operations. Trained as a counterterrorism specialist, Michele served her country for ten years, working in Iraq and other secret Middle Eastern locations.

 

Upon retirement from active service, Michele and her husband Joseph (also a former agent) joined a group of Americans who wished to aid persecuted Christians. Their efforts resulted in the evacuation of a group from northern Iraq that was featured on ABC’s 20/20 in December 2015.

 

Michele holds a master’s degree in Contemporary Arab Studies from Georgetown University. Today she serves as an international security consultant, splitting her time between the Middle East, Florida, and Washington, D.C.

 

MICHELE HAS EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE:

 

  • speaking to large, live audiences(human rights conferences, women’s groups, civic organizations, church groups, college classrooms and chapel services),

 

  • being on television(providing interviews throughout her educational career and starring in a television commercial in Egypt), and

 

  • providing training for CIA officerson counterterrorism and counterintelligence issues.

 

Michele’s presentations are great for sales and negotiation trainingmanaging teams, and working with colleagues/collaboration.

 

Michele enjoys speaking to women’s groups, providing personal security training to international travelers, and showing business teams how they can apply intelligence lessons to workplace productivity, sales and team culture.

 

This remarkable gal came to my attention via a CBN News article that doubles as a promo for her book, “Breaking Cover: My Secret Life in the CIA and What It Taught Me about What’s Worth Fighting For”. The article and the video struck so much that I am sharing it below.

Posted by CBN News

Published on Mar 8, 2018

 

WASHINGTON — Michele Rigby Assad is a former undercover officer in the National Clandestine Service of the U.S Central Intelligence Agency.

 

She trained as a counterterrorism specialist and served her country for 10 years, working in Iraq and other secret Middle Eastern locations.

 

So what is it like to be face-to-face with terrorists who want to kill you?

 

Assad said, “It is fascinating. The best school in terrorism is being in front of these guys like that. We are allowed to say me and my husband served in Baghdad for a year. We got to really interact with those sources and really got to know what they were thinking. What made them tick, which is fascinating because if they met you on the street they would prefer to cut you head off instead of actually deal with you.”

 

Overcoming Hurdles to Gain Trust

 

Assad told CBN News a major hurdle she had to overcome was being a woman anad gaining their trust.

 

“For them, I was the opposite of what they came to meet with. I had to really work at establishing a relationship with them, where they would see me as intelligent and knowledgeable of the Arab world,” she said. “Because in their minds, I should be at home managing a family. I shouldn’t even leave the home without a male minder and I should be covered in black. I was a complete anomaly to these guys.”

 

In her book, Breaking Cover: My Secret Life in the CIA and What It Taught Me About What’s Worth Fighting For, Assad explains that becoming a CIA agent was the last thing on her mind, and didn’t even know her eventual role even existed.

 

9/11 Changes Everything

 

On September 11, 2001, she and her husband knew God had them on the right path.

 

“Here were two committed Christians, pre-positioned to enter the war on terror from the very beginning. Who knew but God?” Assad said.

 

Upon retirement from active service, Michele and her husband, Joseph – who is also a former agent – began leading teams to aid Christian refugees, including a rescue mission to Iraq.

 

“Miraculously, even though the evacuation almost fell apart on numerous occasions, on December 10, 2015 we successfully airlifted 149 Iraqi Christians out of northern Iraq to their new homes in Slovakia,” Assad told us.

 

Assad hopes people who read her book gain a greater understanding of her faith and belief in Jesus Christ, and why they should never give up on reaching for their goals.

 

How Can Ordinary People Stay Safe?

 

With all of her training from the CIA on how to read people, CBN News asked the Assad what ordinary people can do to stay safe.

 

She said no one can be on alert all the time. But when you’re in a popular place, like Times Square in New York or a busy shopping mall, recognize these are vulnerable areas and really open your eyes and pay attention to who is around you.

 

Assad said people can train themselves to spot things that don’t look right.

 

She says when you do see something unusual, have the courage to speak up and tell somebody.

 

Assad says local, state and federal authorities cannot do it alone.

Release the Memo


The theme of Justin Smith’s essay is #ReleaseTheMemo. Most notably, Justin goes over the facts about FBI, DOJ and Dem Party (yup, that includes Barack Hussein Obama and Crooked Hillary) “apparatchiks” (as Justin calls the Marxist comrades – Russian origin details) determined first to prevent a Trump election. Then failing in the first agenda, second is to bring down President Donald Trump.

Release the Memo

A Day of Reckoning

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/27/2018 3:31 PM

 

Never can true reconcilement grow where wounds of deadly hate have pierced so deep.” – John Milton

 

Americans are currently living in some of the most interesting and dangerous times, that they may ever hope to never see again, especially once one views the machinations of the corrupt and criminally-minded high-ranking government officials and intelligence and FBI agents, under the Obama administration, who weaponized the FBI and the Department of Justice. The entire system of FISA-702 surveillance and data collection was weaponized against Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and his subsequent presidency, in a manner that can only be described as illegal, unconstitutional and sedition, if not outright treason.

 

As reported by Sara Carter, investigative journalist and Fox News contributor, a four-page classified House Intelligence Committee memo, spearheaded by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, was made available to all House members on Thursday January 18th. It outlined extensive abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that could lead to several senior officials in the FBI and the DOJ being fired, along with the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation of President Trump.

 

“There are four pages of a memorandum prepared by the intelligence committee that will shock the conscience of the country when it comes to the horrific abuses that occurred during the last administration and that I believe continue to pose a threat to Donald Trump’s presidency,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) stated on Fox News.

 

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said that he was sickened by the memo. He said the information it contained showed behavior by the Obama administration that was “worse than Watergate“.

Due to a ninety-nine page ruling from the FISA Court, declassified in May 2017, America was made aware of numerous unauthorized and improper FISA 702 (17) “About Queries”, that were made by people, such as Susan Rice, within the Obama administration. This information was revealed by National Security Agency Director Admiral Mike Rogers on October 26, 2016; after he started his own investigation in March 2016, subsequently initiating a full NSA compliance audit.

 

Widely reported and proven, America knows that Hillary Clinton and her campaign, facilitated by her lawyer Marc Elias, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and other Democrats, hired and paid Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS for negative information on Donald Trump. Their agreement led to Christopher Steele, former MI6 British intelligence agent, receiving the subcontract and the compilation of the largely false and unverified thirty-five page “Steele Dossier“.

 

Until Admiral Rogers blew the whistle, the FBI had been giving Fusion GPS and CrowdStrike access to the FISA database. They halted access on April 18, 2016; once they learned of Rogers’ investigation, and the very next day, Mary Jacoby, Glenn Simpson’s wife, went to the White House.

 

One must also note that Bruce Ohr, who was recently removed from his position as associate Deputy General at the Justice Department, met with Christopher Steele during the 2016 campaign. Shortly after the election, Steele also met with Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS. And Bruce Ohr’s wife Nellie was working for Simpson at the time.

 

Nellie Ohr is a Stanford University PhD and a subject matter expert on Russia, speaks Russian and is well versed on CIA operations. Her skills include building counterintelligence frameworks to give the appearance of events, that never actually occurred.

 

Numerous Wall Street Journal and Fox News reports are now credible, in their assertions that the FBI illegally used false information in the Steele Dossier to obtain FISA warrants against President Trump and members of his campaign staff and cabinet, such as Michael Flynn and Carter Page. The FBI claimed Page, a Trump advisor, was a “Russian agent” and no source anywhere else made that claim, except for Christopher Steele.

 

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) asked for a criminal investigation of Steele, on January 25th, for making “false statements”. He also called for the release of the memo.

 

On January 12th, Sean Hannity (FoxNews) stated: “I spoke to three people, two congressional members, one person in the DOJ. They all confirmed at different levels that 100 percent the dossier was used … [ to get] the FISA warrant.”

 

This is extremely important considering that FBI agent Peter Strzok, who was in regular contact with the CIA and handled counterintelligence operations, was a source for the Steele Dossier, as was CIA Director John Brennan. They, along with many others such as Andrew McCabe — Hillary Clinton apparatchik, Susan Rice and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, fed the false narrative of President Trump’s so-called “collusion” with Russia.

 

Please recall that Susan Rice illegally unmasked General Michael Flynn, which set in motion events leading to his resignation as President Trump’s Director of National Intelligence. Her information came through the illegally obtained FISA warrant, which makes Rep. Paul Gosar’s statement ever more significant, as he recently exclaimed: “If you don’t think the unmasking has something to do with the weaponization of our Department of Justice and our intelligence services, think again.

 

In addition, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session’s Justice Department investigation, of this criminal FISA abuse, uncovered texts between former counterintelligence expert Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, his mistress and FBI attorney, in which they spoke of an “insurance policy” and a seeming plot to undermine President Trump’s administration. Both of them served briefly on Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference; but Strzok also led the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and he was involved in opening the 2016 investigation into election meddling. And the day after the election, one finds a text between Strzok and Page saying, “Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society”

 

Looking at the texts, at one point, Strzok writes Page: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s [Andrew McCabe?] office that there is 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 forty.”

 

The FBI’s investigation into Russian government interference in the election began in July 2016, just weeks before Strzok’s text. This looks increasingly like a plan was already in place to sink the Trump presidency, if he won, even though they thought any Trump victory would be unlikely. This was their motivation and the smoking gun that illustrates FBI corruption and bias against President Trump.

 

More importantly, despite FBI Counterintelligence Director Bill Priestap‘s “suggestion” not to notify Congress, shouldn’t FBI Director James Comey have told Congressional oversight that he was investigating presidential candidate Trump, as protocol dictates? Or, was Comey too hiding the fact that the FBI was running a counterintelligence operation against a presidential candidate, president – elect Donald Trump and then a sitting President of the United States Donald Trump?

 

The known facts alone speak of such egregious crimes against America and the people’s sacred trust, that they warrant lengthy prison sentences and even executions, depending on one’s degree of complicity. All of these conspirators must be identified and punished accordingly, made to face a day of reckoning, and this does not end well for America until this is done.

 

Representative Matt Gaetz correctly observed: “I believe there are people who will go to jail. You don’t get to try to undermine our country, undermine our elections, and then simply get fired.”

 

In 1961, President Kennedy stated: “The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings … Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it.”

 

Dangerous times demand serious answers for America, which is under assault by domestic enemies. Evil men and women, aspiring dictators and apparatchiks of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, without any respect for our U.S. Constitution and America’s founding principles, have actively sought to usurp the will of the American people and a duly elected U.S. president. Their intents and purposes could not have been executed without Obama’s imprimatur and specific orders, as they cast the die and betrayed America, and, down to the last conspirator, they must be ruthlessly exposed, by releasing the memo, if we are to save our Republic.

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.

UPDATE 12/20/17

 

Here’s an update I found while sharing this post thanks to Nebo Nano a Moderator for the G+ Community United We Stand One Nation Under God.

 

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.
