America’s Twilight Zone


Justin Smith seems to be the only person to have noticed I took a couple days away from blogging which means I didn’t check my email. I am certain you have run into this Justin submission on other Online venues under one title or another. I am choosing the title “America’s Twilight Zone” from among the choices offered by Justin.

 

America’s political climate is incredulously divided largely fed on distorted, twisted and oft times just plain freaking lies from the bulk of the Mainstream Media. Even the most Conservative of the media in Fox News tolerated without any pushback Progressive (I prefer Leftist) political contributors calling President Trump a racist for tweeting against Jew-hating Marxists like the so called “Squad”.

 

SO WHAT! If President Trump said this Squad plague on America should go back to where they are from. I realize only Omar Ilhan is the only foreign born immigrant of the four, but all four profess such anti-America … check that … UN-AMERICAN comments and policies they are not worthy to be American citizens. AND THAT SENTIMENT is not racist because I believe for anyone – Red, Yellow, Black or White – who spout the same load of crap as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib should leave the USA if they insist on transforming America into anti-Liberty Marxist (the deceptive narrative of Democratic Socialism) State.

The Squad and their ilk are continuing the efforts to depose Donald Trump from the Office of President because frankly, Trump is a huge monkey wrench in the transformation mechanizations of the Dem Party.

America’s Twilight Zone 

The Seeds of Destruction

Traitors to America, one and all, the perpetrators of the Russian collusion hoax are dancing in a pool of gasoline, highlighted by the past two years of Democrat and RINO subversion of every branch of the U.S. government to affect a coup against a duly elected president. This plot required high officials of the CIA, FBI, and Obama’s Department of Justice to commit felonies, and most of America knows who committed them. And, in the certain knowledge that Special Counsel Robert Mueller set out from the start to frame President Trump with either collusion or obstruction, battle lines are being drawn ahead of Mueller’s July 24th testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees.

 

Nothing could reveal the sham investigation Mueller pursued more than his team that was filled with obvious Clinton insiders such as Andrew Weissman, an attendee at Hillary’s aborted “victory party” on election night 2016, who just happened to run the DOJ’s Fraud Section for Obama during Hillary Clinton’s “Uranium One Scandal, at the same time Mueller was FBI Director and Uranium One was being investigated by Rod Rosenstein. Jeannie Rhee, a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation, and several other former Obama era DOJ staffers were also assisting Mueller’s attack on President Trump.

 

Leading the nation into the veritable Twilight Zone, during his May 29th press conference, Mueller perpetuated his leading lie that “Russian intelligence officers” launched a “concerted attack on our system” during the 2016 Presidential election by using “sophisticated cyber techniques” to “hack into computers and networks” used by the Clinton campaign and leaking the information. And although none of this actually happened as outlined by Mueller, Russian election hacking was the reason to attack the President for obstruction of justice, when in fact, President Trump was simply defending himself and the nation against a charge that was founded upon a false premise from day one.

 

It’s worth noting too that Mueller’s bulls**t “not exonerating” President Trump inverted “innocent until proven guilty” into “guilty until proven innocent”; and the protestations of Mueller’s assistants through letters and press conferences have served to further prove Mueller’s extremely palpable political prejudice.

 

On July 1st, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) stated: “… we already know — Bob Mueller has told us — that a Democratic administration started an investigation into a conspiracy with Russia that didn’t exist. That’s bad enough. It would be a whole lot worse if it turns out that (the) same Democratic administration continued that investigation by breaking rules at the FISA Court.”

 

An investigation started in March 2018 by Inspector General Michael Horowitz will most certainly unravel much of this and prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that former Obama officials acted criminally. Although it was supposed to have already been completed by now, according to Catherine Herridge, Fox News investigative journalist, and reported over the 4th of July weekend, “key witnesses … into alleged government surveillance abuse have come forward at the 11th hour.”

 

Catherine Herridge at Fox News continued: “… at least one witness outside the Justice Department and FBI started cooperating — a breakthrough that came after Attorney General William Barr ordered U.S. Attorney John Durham to lead a separate investigation into the origins of the bureau’s 2016 Russia case that laid the foundation for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.”

 

Considering FBI lawyer and coup conspirator Lisa Page’s September 2nd 2016 email that stated President Obama “wants to know everything we’re doing”, it is highly unlikely that President Obama was in the dark on the dangerous machinations and the actions undertaken by the Directors of National Intelligence, DOJ, FBI and CIA, regarding the illegal FISA warrants they used against President Trump. Much more likely, John Brennan kept Obama completely informed, as they abused power and covered up numerous crimes and the cover up of Uranium One and the plan to exonerate Clinton on her misuse of classified information too.

 

In April of 2016, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers shut off access to the NSA’s most advanced surveillance systems, after he discovered surveillance abuse by James Comey, James Clapper, and John Brennan, advising the FISA Court of the violations in October 2016. Rogers found that the Obama Administration had used PRISM to access raw data under illegal FISA 702 authority to spy on prominent Republicans and political opponents, which is extremely illegal and a total violation of the civil rights of all Americans, and he briefed President Trump on the situation a week after the election.

 

Is there any doubt left in America that if anyone “colluded” with Russians to interfere in the 2016 election it was the Clinton Campaign’s Fusion GPS disinformation section, which created The Narrative, with the assistance of CIA Director John Brennan, and advanced it to the willingly complicit FBI led by James Comey and the news media?

 

It’s been said “the wheels of justice turn slowly but grind exceedingly fine, and now that U.S. Attorney General Barr and others are analyzing Mueller’s miscarriage, it isn’t any wonder that Mueller looked defeated during his May 29th 2019 press conference.

 

Representative Peter King recently told John Catsimatidis (AM 970 ‘The Answer’]: “There is no doubt to me there was severe, serious abuses that were carried out in the FBI and, I believe, top levels of the CIA against the President of the United States or, at the time, presidential candidate Donald Trump … All of this is going to come out. It’s going to show the bias … the baselessness of the investigation, and how dangerous it is to democracy.”

 

It seems that far too many weak and stupid Republicans do not have the spine to fight the good fight for freedom and liberty in America, even to counter high treason, as they improperly advise President Trump to “move on now that he’s been cleared, rather than prosecute those who intended his political assassination, in order to see these bastards placed under a prison somewhere in Uganda. He must demand a vigorous prosecution from his Justice Department and Attorney General Barr, as he and others set forth to restore America’s confidence in their intelligence agencies, the institutions of government and the rule of law, and in order to ensure success in this endeavor, President Trump must absolutely win reelection.

 

The seeds of the destruction of the nation were sown under the Obama administration, and now, regardless of who wins in the end, the Democratic Party will never accept any terms or yield any radical ideological ground, since from day one, they never accepted the election results, and they are still advocating a nonsensical impeachment plan, reinforcing the fact they are no longer willing to play by the rules and through the peaceful social construct of the ballot box. Any chance of compromise is long past, so it’s all or nothing going forward for American patriots, in order to ensure that Democrats never again receive the opportunity to so egregiously abuse power, through their easy lies and deceptions, the machinations of political sociopaths.

 

America and the Trump administration hold one of the last few chances to halt unimpeded secret agendas and bring these traitors to justice and cleanse them from the ranks of the intelligence groups, and, short of indictments, trials and convictions that make these traitors pay for their treason with decades of their lives spent in prison, “the rule of law” will become seen as unreliable, random and capricious, favoring the elite and wealthy interests, and being worse than no law. America will face a massive rise in civil strife, if not civil war in our country, in the face of anything less, perhaps slowly unfolding or maybe all at once; however, it will come in its own time, unless those good and decent Americans left in the country can deliver righteous punishments to all involved in creating the most nauseating and destabilizing period in American history.

Cohen Lies vs. Dem Crimes with NO Accountability


John R. Houk

© November 30, 2018

 

The big news on Thursday is President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen has pled guilty – WAIT FOR IT – to lying. What prosecutorial team snagged Cohen? Special Persecutor Robert Mueller and his team of Crooked Hillary supporting Prosecutors.

 

VIDEO: Hannity: Mueller investigation desperate for dirt on Trump

 

Fox News

Published on Nov 29, 2018

 

I don’t watch, listen or read Mainstream Media News so I can only imagine how Cohen’s guilty plea propagandized their sheeple the plea will lead to imminent impeachment of President Trump.

 

You should really view the more reasoned reporting on the Cohen Guilty plea that suggests Mueller’s indictments and guilty pleas have NOTHING TO DO with an alleged Trump/Russia collusion. It’s been two-years so you may have forgotten Mueller’s Special Counsel appointment was to investigate Trump for colluding with Russia to manipulate the 2016 Election to Trump’s favor.

 

If you did forget Mueller’s mandate be careful to whom you speak. You might get caught in a perjury trap by making statement dissimilar to anything you said two years ago.

 

NOW if Robert Mueller was actually serious about a candidate who paid for information to sway the 2016 election that involve a Russian source, he should LOOK to the Crooked Hillary campaign paying for the debunked Steele Dossier which was used by the Obama Administration to spy on the Trump campaign. Oh, I forgot the key point. Christopher Steele claimed his Dossier was sourced by – GASP! – the Russians.

 

Specifically what is Cohen pleading guilty to? Could it be facilitating Russian spying on Crooked Hillary? Nope. Again the Russia/Election 2016/American campaign axis is closer akin to Crooked Hillary’s agenda. Cohen pled guilty to lying to Congress about a Trump project to build a skyscraper in Moscow. A project, incidentally, Trump the table as his campaign for President began to pick up steam.

 

…  Cohen admitted he lied to Congress about key details in the negotiations for the Moscow tower, most notably that those talks stretched much deeper into the presidential campaign than previously thought, to June of 2016.

 

Trump, speaking to reporters Thursday, disputed Cohen’s timeline and suggested his former fixer was telling prosecutors what they wanted to hear to save his own skin. As for why the most recent deal failed, Trump said he made the decision because he was focused on on [sic] running for president.”

 

 

But according to Cohen’s new statement to prosecutors, the tower deal remained viable as late as June 2016, after Trump had vanquished his Republican presidential rivals and was mounting his general election campaign against Hillary Clinton.  Cohen said he kept Trump, named as “Individual 1” in the plea, updated about the deal’s progress, and also “briefed family members of Individual 1 within the company about the project.” (Attorney’s plea caused by Trump’s dream of a Moscow tower; By STEPHEN BRAUN and BERNARD CONDON; Washington Times; 11/30/18)

 

In May 2016 Trump acquired the amount of delegates needed to win the GOP nomination and the GOP Convention made Trump’s nomination official in July 2016. The Dems and Leftist MSM are telling you that since Trump was still working the Moscow Trump Tower deal in June 2016, he must have been working with the Russians to win the election in November. THE ONLY THING CONFIRMING THAT ANTI-TRUMP THOUGHT IS LEFTIST WISHFUL THINKING!

 

The timing of securing the GOP nomination by late July led Trump to abandon the Trump Moscow Tower dream. That is a much closer correlation than a failed real estate deal in June 2016.

 

The irony about the Steele Dossier is the initial intelligence poop was initiated by Never-Trump Republicans. As it became evident Trump would win the nomination, the Never-Trump Republican funded terminated.

 

THEN the DNC began the funding in April 2016 which then tapped Christopher Steele in which the most egregious AND debunked accusations against Trump emerged as the infamous Steele Dossier. The DNC and the Clinton campaign expect gullible Americans to believe they knew/see nothing (shades of Sgt. Shultz) about where the info came from that they PAID FOR.

 

 

The Clinton campaign and the DNC are believed to have taken over the project in April 2016, once Trump became the nominee, and oversaw the compilation and completion of the dossier from there.

 

 

Who put it together?

 

The document was produced by Fusion GPS, a Washington strategic intelligence firm cofounded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson in 2012.

 

In 2016, the firm hired Steele to dig into any connections between Trump, then a Republican presidential candidate, and the Russian government.

 

 

But it has attracted particular scrutiny for its work for a U.S. law firm that defended Prevezon Holdings, which until May was locked in a legal battle with the U.S. government over allegations the company’s executives fraudulently obtained a $230 million tax refund from the Russian treasury.

 

Also working the case defending Prevezon was Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 before which Donald Trump Jr. was offered damaging information on Hillary Clinton. Veselnitskaya is known for her work lobbying against the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 U.S. law aimed at punishing human rights abusers in Russia.

 

READ ENTIRETY (Clinton, Trump and the Russia dossier: What you need to know; BY JONATHAN EASLEY, KATIE BO WILLIAMS AND MORGAN CHALFANT; The Hill; 10/28/17 12:31 PM EDT)

 

Mueller’s perjury trap faulty memory trick is hardly as relevant as the overt lies committed and given a pass by the Obama Administration led FBI and DOJ. I hope Americans wakeup to the injustice of Mueller tactics against all things President Trump and the actual crimes that Obama/Crooked Hillary Dems committed with absolutely zero consequences.

Sketchy firm behind Trump dossier is stalling investigators


Members of the Democratic Party and the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) are doing and saying whatever lie that pops into their minds, have been exposed as liars by one of their own.

 

The New York Post has been rated (these days – things change among Conservative MSM) as Center-Right: AllSides and Media Bias/Fact Check. The NY Post has fingered a Leftist organization Fusion GPS which Congressional sources has pegged as… actually an opposition-research group for Democrats, and the founders, who are more political activists than journalists, have a pro-Hillary, anti-Trump agenda.” (Quote from NY Post article)

Sketchy firm behind Trump dossier is stalling investigators

A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party.

 

The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.

 

What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters.” But congressional sources say it’s actually an opposition-research group for Democrats, and the founders, who are more political activists than journalists, have a pro-Hillary, anti-Trump agenda.

 

“These weren’t mercenaries or hired guns,” a congressional source familiar with the dossier probe said. “These guys had a vested personal and ideological interest in smearing Trump and boosting Hillary’s chances of winning the White House.”

 

Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.

 

More, federal records show a key co-founder and partner in the firm was a Hillary Clinton donor and supporter of her presidential campaign.

 

In September 2016, while Fusion GPS was quietly shopping the dirty dossier on Trump around Washington, its co-founder and partner Peter R. Fritsch contributed at least $1,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund and the Hillary For America campaign, Federal Election Commission data show. His wife also donated money to Hillary’s campaign.

 

Property records show that in June 2016, as Clinton allies bankrolled Fusion GPS, Fritsch bought a six-bedroom, five-bathroom home in Bethesda, Md., for $2.3 million.

 

Fritsch did not respond to requests for comment. A lawyer for Fusion GPS said the firm’s work is confidential.

 

Sources say Fusion GPS had its own interest, beyond those of its clients, in promulgating negative gossip about Trump.

 

Fritsch, who served as the Journal’s bureau chief in Mexico City and has lectured at the liberal Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute, married into a family with Mexican business interests. His wife, Beatriz Garcia, formerly worked as an executive at Grupo Dina, a manufacturer of trucks and buses in Mexico City that benefits from NAFTA, which Trump opposes.

 

Fritsch’s Fusion GPS partner Thomas Catan, who grew up in Britain, once edited a business magazine in Mexico, moreover. A third founding partner, Glenn Simpson, is reported to have shared dark views of both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump. Before joining Fusion GPS, Simpson did opposition research for a former Clinton White House operative.

 

The Senate Judiciary Committee is also investigating whether the FBI has wrongly relied on the anti-Trump dossier and its author, Christopher Steele — the old spy who was hired by Fusion GPS to build a Russia file on Trump — to aid its ongoing espionage investigation into the Trump campaign and its possible ties to Moscow.

 

The FBI received a copy of the Democrat-funded dossier in August, during the heat of the campaign, and is said to have contracted in October to pay Steele $50,000 to help corroborate the dirt on Trump — a relationship that “raises substantial questions about the independence” of the bureau in investigating Trump, warned Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

 

Senate investigators are demanding to see records of communications between Fusion GPS and the FBI and the Justice Department, including any contacts with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, now under congressional investigation for possibly obstructing the Hillary Clinton email probe, and deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, who is under investigation by the Senate and the Justice inspector general for failing to recuse himself despite financial and political connections to the Clinton campaign through his Democrat activist wife. Senate investigators have singled out McCabe as the FBI official who negotiated with Steele.

 

Like Fusion GPS, the FBI has failed to cooperate with congressional investigators seeking documents.

 

Steele contracted with Fusion GPS to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia starting in June 2016, whereupon he outlandishly claimed that Hillary campaign hackers were “paid by both Trump’s team and the Kremlin” and that the operation was run out of Putin’s office. He also fed Fusion GPS and its Hillary-allied clients incredulous gossip about Trump hating the Obamas so much that he hired hookers to urinate on a bed they slept in at the Moscow Ritz-Carlton, and that Russian intelligence recorded the pee party in case they needed to blackmail Trump.

 

Never mind that none of the rumors were backed by evidence or even credible sourcing (don’t bother trying to confirm his bed-wetting yarn, Steele advised, as “all direct witnesses have been silenced”). Steele reinforced his paying customers’ worst fears about Trump, and they rewarded him for it with a whopping $250,000 in payments.

 

But it’s now clear his “intelligence reports,” which together run more than 35-pages long, were for the most part worthless. And the clients who paid Fusion GPS (which claims to go “beyond standard due diligence”) for them got taken to the cleaners.

 

Steele’s most sensational allegations remain unconfirmed. For instance, his claim that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen held a “clandestine meeting” on the alleged hacking scheme in Prague with “Kremlin officials” in August 2016 unraveled when Cohen denied ever visiting Prague, his passport showed no stamps showing he left or entered the US at the time, witnesses accounted for his presence here, and Czech authorities found no evidence Cohen went to Prague.

 

Steele hadn’t worked in Moscow since the 1990s and didn’t actually travel there to gather intelligence on Trump firsthand. He relied on third-hand “friend of friend” sourcing. In fact, most of his claimed Russian sources spoke not directly to him but “in confidence to a trusted compatriot” who, in turn, spoke to Steele — and always anonymously.

 

But his main source may have been Google. Most of the information branded as “intelligence” was merely rehashed from news headlines or cut and pasted — replete with errors — from Wikipedia.

 

In fact, much of the seemingly cloak-and-dagger information connecting Trump and his campaign advisers to Russia had already been reported in the media at the time Steele wrote his monthly reports.

 

In the same August report, for example, Steele connected a Moscow trip taken by then-Trump campaign adviser Michael Flynn to “the Russian operation” to hack the election. But there was nothing secret about the trip, which had taken place months earlier and had been widely reported.

 

And there was nothing untoward about it. It was a dinner celebrating the 10th birthday of Russian TV network RT, and Flynn sat at the same table with Putin as US Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.

 

The real question is why anyone would take anything in the sketchy report seriously.

 

But even the CIA gave it credence. The dossier ended up attached to a Top Secret intelligence briefing on Russia for President Obama, even though his intelligence czar last month testified “We couldn’t corroborate the sourcing.” The FBI, moreover, has been using it for investigative leads on Trump associates like Carter Page, even though former FBI Director James Comey this month described the dossier as “salacious and unverified.”

 

And of course, Democratic leaders in Congress keep referring to it to cook up more charges against Trump, while liberal media continue to use it as a road map to find “scoops” on Trump in the “Russiagate” conspiracy they’re peddling — still hoping against hope that the central thrust of the report — that Trump entered into an unholy alliance with the Russian government during the election — will one day prove true and bring about the downfall of his presidency.
