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.]

Judicial Watch: FBI Records Show Dossier Author Deemed ‘Not Suitable For Use’ as


Something Never Trumpers, brainwashed Lefties, overtly lying Lefties and just simple apolitical Americans who get most of news from local networks that are subsidiaries of MSM networks all should know. The FBI pushed the Steele Dossier (or whatever name you choose) as a legitimate source to take down President Trump EVEN THOUGH the FBI discredited Christopher Steele as a legitimate “Confidential Human Source”.

Judicial Watch: FBI Records Show Dossier Author Deemed ‘Not Suitable For Use’ as Source, Show Several FBI Payments in 2016

 

Documents Reveal Steele Was Admonished in February, 2016

 

Judicial Watch PRESS ROOM

Email Date: August 4, 2018

JW Website Date: AUGUST 03, 2018

 

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today the FBI turned over 70 pages of heavily redacted records about Christopher Steele, the former British spy, hired with Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee funds, who authored the infamous Dossier targeting President Trump during last year’s presidential campaign.  The documents show that Steele was cut off as a “Confidential Human Source” (CHS) after he disclosed his relationship with the FBI to a third party.  The documents show at least 11 FBI payments to Steele in 2016 and document that he was admonished for unknown reasons in February, 2016.  The documents were turned over in response to Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for records of communications and payments between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and his private firm, Orbis Business Intelligence (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00916)).

The documents include a “source closing communication” that states that Steele (referred to as “CHS” or Confidential Human Source) “is being closed” because:

 

CHS confirmed to an outside third party that CHS has a confidential relationship with the FBI. CHS was used as a source for an online article. In the article, CHS revealed CHS’ relationship with the FBI as well as information that CHS obtained and provided to FBI. On November 1, 2016, CHS confirmed all of this to the handling agent. At that time, handling agent advised CHS that the nature of the relationship between the FBI and CHS would change completely and that it was unlikely that the FBI would continue a relationship with the CHS. Additionally, handling agent advised that CHS was not to operate to obtain any intelligence whatsoever on behalf of the FBI.

 

The documents also show that Steele was paid repeatedly by the FBI and was “admonished” for some unknown misconduct in February, 2016.  The documents include:

 

  1. Fifteen (15) FD-1023, Source Reports.

 

  1. Thirteen (13) FD-209a, Contact Reports.

 

  1. Eleven (11) FD-794b, Payment Requests.  (It appears Steele was paid money eleven of the thirteen times he met with the FBI and gave them information.)

 

  1. An Electronic Communication (EC) documenting that on February 2, 2016, Steele was admonished in accordance with the Justice Department guidelines and the FBI CHS Policy Manual.

 

The documents were obtained as a result of a lawsuit was filed after the Department of Justice failed to respond to a March 8, 2017, FOIA request seeking:

 

  • All records of communications between any official, employee, or representative of the FBI and Mr. Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer and the owner of the private firm Orbis Business Intelligence.

 

  • All records related to the proposed, planned, or actual payment of any funds to Mr. Steele and/or Orbis Business Intelligence.

 

  • All records produced in preparation for, during, or pursuant to any meetings or telephonic conversations between any official, employee, or representative of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mr. Christopher Steele and/or any employee or representative of Orbis Business Intelligence.

 

“These new docs show the shady, cash-based relationship the Obama FBI had with Clinton operative Christopher Steele,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The anti-Trump Russia ‘investigation’ had Christopher Steele at its center and his misconduct was no impediment to using information from his Russia intelligence collaborators to spy on the Trump team. The corruption and abuse is astonishing.”

Last week, a separate Judicial Watch lawsuit uncovered the FISA warrant documents used to justify spying on Carter Page. The warrants are controversial because the FISA court was never told that the key information justifying the requests came from a “dossier” that was created by Fusion GPS, a paid agent of the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.  Fusion GPS hired Steele to create the Dossier and Steele is referenced repeatedly as “Source #1” in the warrants. The initial Carter Page warrant was granted just weeks before the 2016 election. Steele and his “minimally corroborated” Clinton-DNC dossier was an essential part of the FBI and DOJ’s applications for surveillance warrants to spy on Page.

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.

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.

Schiff and Dems ‘Have All This Blood on Their Hands,’ Nunes Says

Obama administration officials and liberal bureaucrats ‘completely destroyed the FBI and DOJ’ by weaponizing them on behalf of Hillary Clinton

By Kathryn Blackhurst 

Updated 03 Jul 2018 at 7:48 AM

PoliZettePolitics. Explained.

 

Democrats “have all this blood on their hands” because they “completely destroyed the FBI and DOJ” by digging up dirt on President Donald Trump in 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s favor, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said Monday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

 

“They’re the ones that have all this blood on their hands. They’re the ones who completely destroyed the FBI and DOJ,” Nunes insisted. “How did they do that? They did that by digging up dirt — the Clinton campaign dug up dirt, put it into a dossier, fed it into the FBI. The FBI used our counterintelligence capabilities against a political campaign. That’s what happened here.”

 

Nunes was responding to accusations Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, leveled against him and other GOP House committee members during an interview on CNN’s “Wolf” last week.

 

Schiff called Nunes, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) “the four horsemen of this apocalypse” who “have been leading the charge basically to require the Justice Department to give them materials that can be leaked or fed or misrepresented.” Meadows is chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, which Jordan founded, while Gowdy is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

 

“And in the meantime, they do enormous damage to these institutions. Ultimately they’ll be held accountable,” Schiff claimed.

 

Nunes dismissed Schiff, saying he and the other GOP lawmakers are “not going to be threatened by the Democrats” and will proceed with their investigative plans.

 

“The Democrats in the House and the Senate — they’ve continued to want to obfuscate, they’ve continued to want to cover up,” Nunes said. “If we listened to the Democrats, we would have never … found out that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paid [former British spy] Christopher Steele to generate this dirt on President Trump.”

 

VIDEO: Nunes tightens screws in his probe into surveillance abuses

 

“So I tend to ignore everything that they say,” Nunes added. “We continue to do our work day in and day out to get to the truth. And gradually we are getting to the truth.”

 

Nunes revealed earlier this year that the FBI used the anti-Trump dossier alleging collusion between the presidential campaign and the Russians to renew surveillance warrants again former Trump adviser Carter Page. Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) funded the dossier.

 

Information the congressional committees’ investigations have steadily uncovered includes direct evidence of profoundly anti-Trump and pro-Clinton bias within the DOJ and FBI during the Russian collusion investigation, and also in the immediately prior probe of Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct official business as secretary of state.

 

Nunes noted that he referred 17 current and former DOJ and FBI officials to Gowdy of the House oversight committee, and to Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), chairman of the House Committee on the Judiciary.

 

Nunes also revealed Monday that he referred 10 Obama-era Department of State and White House officials to Gowdy and Goodlatte for testimony about the dossier, surveillance abuse, and other matters.

 

Congressional investigators “still don’t understand how” and why the Trump-Russia investigation “was opened” in the first place, Nunes said, noting that “many people in the Obama-era State Department were involved in the opening of that investigation.”

 

“We also know that many people in the State Department were meeting with Christopher Steele … so this is why this investigation is taking a while,” Nunes said. “A lot of people had their hands on the Steele dossier, including many people in the media who knew about the Steele dossier.”

 

Nunes said these reasons are “partly why I am sending these names over to the judiciary and oversight committees, because they already have a task force — the task force has been convened.”

 

“They should be able to do all of these hearings in the public, full transparency, so that people can watch on live television,” Nunes told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “But the good thing is that I believe that Chairmen Gowdy and Goodlatte, their task force will interview these people, and they will interview them in public. It will be the first time during this entire investigation that the American people get to see actual questions get answered by these potential witnesses.”

 

Related: Trump Can Order Rosenstein to Give Docs to Congress, So Why Doesn’t He?

 

“That is my recommendation to the committee chairmen. I believe they will follow that recommendation. And they may have other names,” Nunes added. “I believe as these hearings take place and testimony is given to the Congress, I think it will be a much-needed sunlight in this investigation. I think the American people will begin to see who is telling the truth and who is not telling the truth.”

 

Nunes also ripped mainstream media outlets for failing to cover the Obama-era scandals and seeking to “get to the bottom of it.”

 

“What we’re having to do here as the legislative branch of government — we’re having to do the work that the media won’t do because there are very few in the media who will actually cover this story to try to get to the bottom of it,” Nunes lamented. “That’s part of what’s taking so long. Typically you would have a free and fair and transparent media trying to get to the truth. But in this case we haven’t had that.”

 

Nunes said he hopes to ensure the American people “know that this is just one more step in the process” of finding answers and achieving transparency.

 

“I think we’ve been very transparent about how we’ve conducted the process. We’re onto FISA abuse and other matters. I’ve said for a long time that we’re looking at the State Department.”

No Overall Bias?


OIG Pulls a Comey in Horowitz Report

 

John R. Houk

© June 15, 2018

The Horowitz IG Report on the FBI/DOJ handling of Crooked Hillary’s email server investigation came out June 14. I have no doubt the Leftist MSM will report this underlying theme: Horowitz found no political bias.

 

I haven’t personally read the 568-page report yet, but a quick read of primarily Conservative sources commenting the report, Michael Horowitz both let’s the FBI off the hook relating bias and singles out bias of certain FBI/DOJ members. How Horowitz can generalize no overall bias and individual bias simultaneously is beyond me. I believe another instalment of Horowitz’s IG investigation is in the future.

 

Here are some salient observations that Conservative sources are observing:

 

  • Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch acted improperly in not cutting short a meeting aboard an aircraft with former President Bill Clinton during the investigation of Hillary Clinton. Both Lynch and Bill Clinton denied discussing the ongoing email probe during the meeting.

 

  • The FBI improperly permitted two Clinton aides who were witnesses in the investigation to sit in on the FBI’s questioning of Clinton

 

  • Comey drafted an initial statement exonerating Clinton months before the investigation ended. FBI agents’ actions surrounding the DOJ/FBI interview of Hillary Clinton were ‘inappropriate’ and created appearance of bias

 

  • The draft statement exonerating Clinton also removed the term “gross negligence”—a condition that could have been used for prosecution—and replaced with “especially concerning.” – Comey usurped the authority of the attorney general when he announced during a July 2016 press conference that the FBI would not be recommending charges against Clinton, then the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

 

  • An initial assessment in the Comey draft statement saying foreign spy services were “reasonably likely” to have accessed the classified data on the Clinton server was replaced with “possible.”

 

  • FBI ethics officials “did not fully appreciate” the potential conflict of interest by former FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s wife receiving $675,288 in 2015 from Clinton associate Terry McAuliffe, then-governor of Virginia, for her political campaign for a state senate seat. McCabe became head of the email probe in early 2016.

 

  • The FBI improperly regarded a parallel investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump presidential campaign in 2016 to be more important the Clinton email probe.

 

  • New texts between FBI lovers Strzok and Page were ‘disappointing’ and cast a shadow over the integrity of the entire Clinton email probe – Strzok’s and Page’s text messages expressing pro-Clinton and anti-Trump views raised questions about whether they allowed their political leanings to interfere with their work. – The senior FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page may have had a “willingness to take official action” to hurt Donald Trump’s chances of winning the 2016 election.

 

 

  • Five unnamed FBI employees — including one lawyer who later worked on the Mueller probe — are under scrutiny for anti-Trump bias

 

  • President Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Hillary Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account

 

  • Despite Clinton connections, former Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe didn’t fully recuse themselves 

 

  • ‘Insubordinate’ Ex-FBI Director James Comey repeatedly violated policy and inaccurately described the legal situation surrounding Clinton’s emails – While Comey’s conduct was “insubordinate,” his actions and those of others in the FBI were not affected by bias.

 

  • Comey departed “clearly and dramatically” from FBI and DOJ guidelines while overseeing the Clinton investigation. Comey’s decisions “negatively impacted the perception of the FBI” and the DOJ.

 

 

These points are hardly exhaustive, but they provide a decent snapshot of political bias even though the Horowitz IG Report erroneously claims no political bias affected the FBI/DOJ investigation of the Crooked Hillary illegal private email server.

 

I don’t know if you noticed. The Horowitz IG Report sounds an awful lot just Comey going down a list of Crooked Hillary practices that any two-bit lawyer could match to U.S. Statutes violated. Violations that have had criminal prosecutions!

 

I will cross post some of Conservative sources I felt aligned more with my thoughts, but first here are a few titles that I perused through.

HUGE BREAKING NEWS: Another Lawyer Was Removed From Mueller’s Team This February Over Anti-Trump Text Messages

 

By Cristina Laila

June 14, 2018

Gateway Pundit

 

The IG report released Thursday revealed ANOTHER lawyer was removed from Mueller’s team of liberal hacks February of this year after anti-Trump text messages surfaced.

 

‘Viva Le Resistance,’ said the unidentified Trump-hating (future) Mueller lawyer in a November 2016 text message.

 

Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller reported:

 

An FBI attorney who worked on the special counsel’s Russia investigation until earlier this year sent anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, including one exclaiming: “Viva le Resistance.”

 

The attorney’s comments are revealed in a Justice Department inspector general’s report released on Thursday.

 

The lawyer is not identified, but he worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was the FBI’s lead attorney on the investigation into Russian election interference. He was assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation soon after it began in May 2017 and left in late February of this year after some of his private messages were shared with the special counsel.

 

The unidentified FBI lawyer said he was “numb” just days after Trump was elected to the White House.

 

Apparently the FBI lawyer became galvanized in his effort to resist Trump, reported Chuck Ross:

 

“Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?” one FBI lawyer wrote on Nov. 22, 2016.

 

“Hell no. Viva le resistance,” the future Mueller attorney responded.

 

According to the report, this Trump-hating FBI lawyer claimed in an interview with the Office of Inspector General he didn’t let his political feelings or beliefs impact his work on Hillary’s email investigation or the Russia probe.

 

RIGHT.

 

And Horowitz said there was no political bias at the FBI…

CNN: Strzok and Page Didn’t Attack Trump, HE Attacked Them!

 

Biggest takeaway from IG report: With all odds stacked against him by a crazed, frenzied mainstream/social media, Hollywood/Entertainment, Never Trumpers, backstabbers in his own party, an Obama-weaponized FBI, Trump was elected President

Deep State & White House

 

“We’ll stop it.”  Three now infamous little words that can never be walked back and ones that prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that the media of the day and a rogue Obama-weaponized FBI were on the same choir page during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

 

How the mighty are falling like dominoes before the very eyes of the masses—in spite of intense media backup.  The same masses that Hillary Rodham Clinton called “deplorables”  and that some unidentified FBI yob described as “mostly poor and middleclass”  members of society who voted Donald Trump.

 

“All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out,” the employee wrote. “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS (sic) that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.” (Fox News, June 14. 2018)

 

All Obama’s voters were ever after, Mr. Yob, were kitchens, welfare for life and Obama phones.

 

“Despite Strzok’s extremely inappropriate texting — it’s wildly improper for someone in his position to express animus or favoritism toward a particular candidate — the inspector general found no evidence that Strzok acted on his text to Page.” (CNN, JUNE 14, 2018.)

 

No acting on his text other than turning the political world upside down, inside out and on its head.

 

VIDEO – Mark Levin: Not a single pro-Trump FBI agent in IG report

 

[Posted by Fox News

Published on Jun 14, 2018]

 

The biggest three little words, which came in August 2016 from disgraced FBI agent, Peter Strzok, once deputy head of counterintelligence at the FBI, working on both the Trump-Russia probe and the ‘investigation’ into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, were referenced in yesterday’s massively toned down, 500-page IG report, but the biggest laugh comes a day later from Fake News Grand Central CNN:

 

“The massive report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz makes clear that while several FBI officials broke with bureau protocol in their handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server during the 2016 campaign, they were not motivated by political bias against Donald Trump.” (CNN)

 

ONLY “several FBI officials “broke with bureau protocol” in their handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.  And they “WERE NOT” motivated by political bias against Donald Trump.”

 

Take THAT, President Trump, you paranoid, “not-MY-president, you!

The biggest reaction to the questionable IG report didn’t come from the public, media-teased for weeks before its final inelegant release—but from the media—shown as working for the same goals as Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page.

 

Unforgettable LOLs for today’s CNN headline: ‘How 7 words in the 500-page IG report give Donald Trump all the ‘deep state’ ammo he wanted’.

 

Trump had his Deep State ammo from the get-go.  Video proof exists in the hysterics, wailing and weeping of the networks’ talking heads in the wee hours of Nov. 9, 2016.

 

In their unprofessional, desperate lovers’ texts, Strzok and Page were only putting into words the collective fervent wishes of the mainstream and social media.

 

Evidence of the ill will the pair bore for Donald Trump:

 

PAGE: “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
STRZOK: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”

 

“Even before the release of these new text messages between Page and Strzok, who were having an extramarital affair during the campaign, Trump has focused on the duo as aligned against him. (CNN)

 

“SPYGATE is in full force! Is the Mainstream Media interested yet? Big stuff!” (There’s no evidence that Strzok, Page or the broader FBI were spying on Trump’s campaign.)

 

No, they were only trying to dump it.

 

And this is richest of all: “Trump has attacked the two since, at least last December, when emails and text between Strzok and Page were released, showing that both were skeptical of Trump. (Strzok was dismissed from the special counsel probe being run by Robert Mueller in summer 2017.)

 

This meme advances the outrageous lie that Trump was “attacking” Strzok and Page, rather than them attacking him.

 

Nor was Strzok merely dismissed from the special counsel being run by Robert Mueller in the summer of 2017, he was demoted and will some day be handsomely pensioned off.

 

Page left the scene returning to the same kind of obscurity she had before becoming FBI agent Strzok’s mistress.

 

The media will be falling over backwards to keep the masses from thinking about the report’s real biggest takeaway:

 

The biggest takeaway from the IG report is this: With all odds stacked against him by a crazed and frenzied mainstream/social media, Hollywood/Entertainment Industry, Never Trumpers, backstabbers in his own party and an Obama-weaponized FBI, etc., etc., etc, Donald Trump was handily elected as President of the United States.

Strassel: ‘Don’t believe anyone who tells you Horowitz didn’t find bias. I can still hear the echoes of the howls…’

 

By Tom Tillison 

June 15, 2018

BizPac Review

 

Wall Street Journal opinion columnist Kimberley Strassel took to Twitter to say what many Americans are thinking about Thursday’s release of the Department of Justice inspector general’s report, that something’s amiss because what’s in the report does not match the summary of the report.

 

In a series of tweets, Strassel began by noting the careful play on words by inspector general Michael Horowitz when he stressed that they “did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed.”

 

“Don’t believe anyone who claims Horowitz didn’t find bias,” she tweeted. “He very carefully says that he found no ‘documentary’ evidence that bias produced ‘specific investigatory decisions.”

 

Strassel notes that while no one actually put it in writing that they were politically motivated, Horowitz “in fact finds bias everywhere.”

 

And that “this same cast of characters who the IG has now found to have made a hash of the Clinton investigation” is now to be trusted working the Trump-Russia probe.

 

She also highlighted “stunning examples of incompetence,” such as former FBI director James Comey explaining that he didn’t grasp the importance of Anthony Weiner’s laptop because he wasn’t aware of Weiner being married to Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin.

 

 

And people dared to question President Donald Trump’s decision to fire Comey?

 

One thing is certain, the wording of the report allowed the anti-Trump media to run with headlines screaming that the IG report “found no political bias.”

 

But there’s a theory on what that was all about, as seen in a tweet from social media account The Last Refuge — that also happens to support the idea that the summary, “written post facto by administrators in FBI/DOJ leadership,” fails to correspond with what’s in the report.

 

“The ‘executive summary’ was written to protect the institutions and that’s where the media are getting ALL of their headlines,” the tweet reads. “However, the internal body, the investigative report inside, is entirely contradictory to the summary. The facts are DEVASTATING.”

 

Others commented, saying that Horowitz “pulled his punch just like Comey did with Hillary [Clinton].”

 

“I see some really damning stuff in this IG report,” tweeted social media user Brian Wilson. “But I’ll just go ahead and say it: The IG pulled his punch just like Comey did with Hillary. I’m stunned by the gathered evidence of bias … and shocked the IG doesn’t think the bias impacted the investigation.”

 

 

The liberal media has been quick to dismiss the IG’s findings, but as former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino noted, the report is “devastating.”

 

“The IG report is only a ‘nothing-burger’ to people who know nothing about the case. It’s a devastating report which will damage Obama, Comey, Hillary, Page, Strzok, and more. Read it and you’ll clearly see the troubling pieces of it,” he tweeted.

Minassian Not an Islamic Terrorist but an Incel Terrorist?


John R. Houk

© April 26, 2018

 

Alek Minassian is the Toronto Massacre perpetrator of the April 23 crime that killed 10 and harmed at least 13 others when he ran a rented van through a crowd of people.

Many Conservatives and Counterjihad pundits speculated Minassian’s motive looked awfully like Islamic Terrorism because the act itself had all the fingerprints of past Islamic attacks against non-Muslims globally.

 

BUT it appears Minassian is of an Armenian descent and Armenians in their own republic are like 96% (or more) Christian. Also, a perusal of Minassian’s history indicates a bit of mental illness connected to autism or Asperger’s disease which witnesses would tell you they noticed odd behavior from childhood, secondary school and in time at a college and even a short stint in the Canadian army. (A good source on this break down is the National Post which I will cross post later)

 

Minassian’s murder motive may have been related to a movement he joined that congregates a group of dissatisfied men who can’t satisfy their lust with women. Those dissatisfied men call themselves a part of the “Incel” Movement or Rebellion – Incel as in “Involuntary Celibacy”.  The Incel topic is something I’ll address in a later post.

 

Due the immense similarity to Islamic Terrorism it is worth cross posting some insights by Paul Sutliff about the Islamic Terrorist tactic of motor vehicle mass murder. A tactic that Minassian may have caused some Islamic jealousy and a probable uptick perpetrated by Muslim terrorists.

Why are Jihadi Vehicle Attacks Growing?

 

 

By Paul Sutliff

April 23, 2018

Paul Sutliff on Civilization Jihad

 

Introduction
This article comes from a paper I wrote as part of my studies at Henley-Putnam University. Because of today’s attack in Toronto, Canada, I am publishing parts of the paper here in hopes law enforcement and others will make use of it.

 

  1. Islamic Speeches that can be deemed contributory towards an attack

 

MEMRI.org posted a video and transcript 6473 of a February 2, 2018 sermon given by Imam Mohamed Moussa gave a sermon at the North Hudson Islamic Center in New Jersey that called on Islamic teachers to be mindful of what they say in sermons and schools that could be deemed incitement to violence[1]. According to his biography on the Graduate Theological Foundation Mohamad Moussa is the President of the Tri-State Imams Council, and is the Secretary General of Manara Institute. The importance of this call by Dr. Mohamad Moussa, is that it is a public recognition that a problem exists in mosques across the United States of Imams using rhetoric that can be deemed as inciting to violence. Dr. Mohamad Moussa is not alone in his recognition of this. MEMRI published a video and transcript in 2015 of Imam Tareq Yousef Al-Masri who addressed the most recent terror attack in Paris as he spoke in the Brooklyn Oulel-Albab Mosque on January 9th of 2015. In this sermon Yousef states:

 

Let us admit, without lying to ourselves, that we, the Muslims, are time bombs. When I say “we, the Muslims,” I do not mean every single Muslim, but Muslims of the religious sector are time bombs. When a sinner repents, the first thing he does is make a bomb. He blows it up and kills people. We must admit this. We cannot become immune if we do not admit this.[2]

 

While Yousef was not inciting violence he was recognizing that it does exist in mosques around the world including in the USA. Further on in the sermon, Yousef recognized who he believed were the scholars behind the violent rhetoric being spouted in mosques. This was an attempt to place a finger of blame against certain Islamic scholars while recognizing that a problem exists that needs to be addressed.

 

  1. Terrorist Propaganda of Vehicle Attacks

 

Dr. Ahmet S. Yayla (2017) wrote of the Islamic State’s “Lone Wolf’s Handbook” and its possibility for cultivating terrorist actions within the USA. Dr. Yayla shared that the fourth chapter of this handbook was entitled “The Ultimate Human Lawn Mower.” Yayla then reminded the reader that ISIS had released a music video on the use of vehicles to kill in January of 2016. Yayla noted that this chapter advised the following:

 

a. To get a large 4X4 truck and to weld knife-like metal blades on bumpers and around headlights to increase the causalities.

b. Choose the most crowded places and drive over people as fast as possible to exact the most damage.

c. Drivers are not to stop after the first hit and to keep driving over as many victims as possible.

d. Choose the routes appropriately to ensure that there would be many other victims after the initial hit.

e. These kinds of attacks should be considered as suicide missions.

f. Driver assassins are advised to have weapons if possible and fight back until the very end.

 

g. Leave a note crediting ISIS for the attack.[3]

 

Of special note here is the recommendation to acquire a larger vehicle to inflict maximum damage. Notable here is that this would likely require actors to rent vehicles. In Western society, a truck with knives protruding would likely be a target of law enforcement before any damage could be inflicted, this may account for a lack of reports of such vehicles in terror attacks.

 

a. Historical Usage of Vehicle Attacks

 

When I originally was working on this article as a paper for Henley-Putnam University, an attack occurred in Germany. O’Donoghue (2018, April 07) wrote in the Daily Star that in Münster a vehicle attack was carried out resulting in the immediate death of three persons and the injuries of at least 30 others. O’Donoghue notes with as little information that she has at present, that the attack seemed to have similarities with an attack in Berlin in December of 2016 in which 12 people were killed and 48 others were injured. Traynor and Hickson (2016) described this as the attack on the Berlin Christmas Market. This attack utilized a stolen lorry. A lorry being a commercial type truck used to transport goods.

 

Helsel  (2016, August 4) wrote of a vehicle attack in France on Bastille Day, July 14. The attack claimed the lives of 85 people. The terrorist was killed. In this incident investigations revealed what that the terrorist selected his route than did what was called test runs in preparation.

 

Prokupecz, Levenson, and Gingras, B. (2017, November 06) wrote of a truck attack in New York City on October 31, 2017, which claimed the lives of 6 people with 11 being injured before the terrorist was shot but not killed. The truck was rented and a note was found near the truck giving ISIS credit for the attack.

 

Counter-Extremism Project (2018, March 16) recognized that there has been a series of vehicular terrorist related attacks documenting 36 cases since 2006, “collectively resulting in the deaths of at least 196 people and the injury of at least 1,050 others”[4]. Add in the statistics for this week and the number dead exceeds 200 while the number injured rises close to 1,100.

 

Counter-Extremism Project (CEP), documents individual terror acts. Noting the country of origin of the actors which never appears to be from within the country where the attack takes place. CEP notes that in some cases such as the attack at the Glasgow Airport on June 30, 2007 that vehicular mass was not enough and actors placed propane canisters for an intended maximum effect. This action has been seen multiple times, some of them in failed attempts, some of them seen in accidental explosions such as are described by Birnbaum, Booth, and Branigin (2017, August 17) after the Barcelona truck attack in June 2017.

 

The FBI saw truck attacks becoming a serious concern by 2010 and published “Use of Vehicle Ramming Tactics” (2010, December 13). Of special note are the indicators of a possible terror actor provided in this release. The FBI indicators are tempered with the very real possibility that “a ramming attack can be conducted with little to no warning”[5]. However, they indicators of a possible actor are only present when one or multiple indicators are given. Among the indicators shown are:

 

  • “Unusual modifications to commercial motor vehicles, heavy equipment, passenger cars, and sports utility vehicles (SUVs), such as homemade attempts to reinforce the front of the vehicle with metal plates.

 

  • The purchase, rental, or theft of large or heavy-duty vehicles or equipment, such as SUVs, trucks, or commercial motor vehicles, if accompanied by typical indicators such as nervousness during the purchase, paying in cash, or lack of familiarity with the vehicle’s operations.

 

  • Commercial motor vehicles or heavy equipment being operated erratically, at unusual times, or in unusual locations, particularly in heavy pedestrian areas.

 

  • Attempts to infiltrate closed areas where traffic usually moves, but where crowds are gathered, such as for street festivals or farmers’ markets.

 

  • A vehicle operator’s apparent unfamiliarity with commercial motor vehicle or heavy equipment operation (unable to back up; trouble with shifting; poor lane tracking; unfamiliarity with basic vehicle mechanics such as air brake operations, slack adjusters, fifth wheel operations, Jake brakes, engine type, or location of fire extinguishers and other emergency equipment)”.[6]

 

Of interest is the fourth indicator which speaks of observations of a vehicle in operation at unusual locations particularly heavy pedestrian zones. This behavior has been discovered after reviewing truck terror attacks that were committed. Celona, Fenton and Fears (2017, November 01) revealed that in the case of the New York City truck attack on October 31, 2017, security camera coverage revealed what could have been a test run and may have been multiple test runs.

 

  1. Why are Vehicle Attacks happening more often?

 

Vehicle attacks are more likely to occur because:

 

  • No affiliation with a terror group is required.

 

  • No specialized training is needed.

 

  • Planning can be brief.

 

  • Trucks and Vans are easy to rent or steal.

 

  • Little to no financial investment required.

 

  • Propaganda from the Islamic State and Al Qaeda encourage such acts.

 

  • No collaboration or consulting is required to achieve the terror attack.

 

  • Almost impossible for law enforcement to detect and prevent.

 

  • Death while committing the act requires no jail time.

 

While it is stated that it is almost impossible to detect, humans are communicative by nature. They write notes to themselves, talk to others and share what is on their mind. It is still possible that somehow, something could be known about a possible vehicle attack. Counterterrorism experts have a near impossible task to prevent all such acts.

Intro to ‘An Unethical Nightmare’

I realize the news cycle today will focus on the U.S. military strike against locations believed to be chemical weapons development centers. The wicked Dems have even suggested that an attack on Syria is a smokescreen to obstruct Robert Mueller’s witch hunt against President Trump.

 

In reality, if there is any distraction in obstructing justice, it is the Deep State corruption beginning to unravel. The December 9 FBI raid of Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen at his home, office and hotel is an unrepentant attempt to keep the Deep State conspiracy against the President from unraveling.

 

At first many believed Mueller directed the raid to occur. But to avoid the appearance of conflict, Mueller turned over some info on Cohen financial practices to the DOJ that resulted in some judge certifying a search warrant against Cohen.

 

As far as I know to date, the actual reason has not been disclosed to the public. The guess is Cohen allegedly may have tried to cover any financial tracks leading to himself by manipulating how a payoff to porn star Stephanie Clifford (stage name Stormy Daniels) had occurred. Apparently, the payoff and confidentiality contract were legal, but the “how” may have been accomplished illegally.

 

The concern is the FBI search warrant execution may have resulted in attorney-client privilege between President Trump and Michael Cohen unrelated to any Cohen financial impropriety probably will be violated. My concern and your concern should be the Deep State FBI-DOJ Trump-haters will manipulate the attained search warrant data to be used against the President. AND if you think no such manipulation is capable by the FBI, you should think of Obama’s cadres of unmaskers, leakers and liars were unleashed on candidate and President-Elect Trump which includes Crooked Hillary paying for the highly discredited Steele Dossier.

An Unethical Nightmare

The rule of law and President Donald Trump came under one more withering attack on April 9th 2018, through the FBI and Department of Justice raid on the office of Michael Cohen, the President’s personal lawyer, and under Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s initiative and direction, as he stepped outside the purview mandated for the “Russia collusion” investigation, in an attempt to find any wrongdoing by the President. This attack is largely political revenge and a fishing expedition designed to unseat President Trump and keep some very real criminals out of prison, like Mueller himself, and Hillary Clinton.

 

The Justice Department issued a warrant for the FBI to search for evidence surrounding a $130,000 dollar payment from Cohen to pornography actress Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had an affair with Pres. Trump in 2006. Cohen has repeatedly stated that the President had no knowledge of the payment, intended to buy Daniel’s silence.

 

Many problems with this investigation exist, and Mueller and his team appear to be desperate to find wrong doing and a crime committed by the President, in a manner no better than Good Ol’ Stalin who was often quoted as having said “show me the man and I’ll show you the crime”. In a year’s time, Mueller has yet to find any Russian collusion by President Trump.

 

Also, according to world renown lawyer and author, Alan Dershowitz, this recent action violated President Trump’s attorney-client privilege and his 4th and 6th Amendment Rights, which prohibit the government from intruding on the privacy of attorney-client rights of citizens. These FBI agents and prosecutors have no right to view confidential materials between a client and their lawyer, and this alone constitutes a core violation of both Cohen’s and the President’s rights, even if the government never uses the confiscated material.

 

If anyone should lose their job and be prosecuted, it should be Mueller for obscuring the fact that Hillary Clinton authorized Russia to receive 25% of the United States’ total uranium resources, through a corrupt Uranium One deal, for a payment to the Clinton Foundation of $145 million dollars, when Mueller was the FBI Director. This deal allowed Russia to eventually gain majority control of those resources. And so, Hillary too should be in prison for treason.

 

Weren’t the Russians just as dangerous when Mueller headed the FBI?

 

Where is Mueller’s investigation into the false Steele Dossier, Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS and the Hillary Clinton campaign? Each used Russian sources to leak unproven rumors and smears against Donald Trump in an attempt to ensure his defeat in 2016.

 

Where are the investigations and prosecutions of James Clapper, John Brennan, Susan Rice, Samantha Power and others for unmasking innocent Americans caught in surveillance and illegally leaking their names to the media? Where is the prosecution of Comey and McCabe for leaking information on their investigations of the 2016 campaign and lying about it to investigators?

 

Equally corrupt, the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is the same man who allowed an illegally presented FISA warrant to be used against then candidate Trump and who appointed Mueller Special Counsel; subsequently, Mueller hired 17 political hit-men, nine of whom are Clinton donors and the remainder being Clinton supporters, with the exception of one. Rosenstein personally signed off on Monday’s warrant and the FBI’s decision to raid Cohen’s office.

 

Dershowitz recently told Fox News: “If this were Hillary Clinton [having her lawyer’s office raided] the ACLU would be on every TV station in America jumping up and down. The deafening silence of the ACLU and civil libertarians about the intrusion into lawyer-client confidentiality is really appalling.”

 

The double standard is all too evident, since it is common knowledge now that Obama’s politicized FBI and DOJ protected Hillary Clinton, after revelations she was using a private computer server to transmit classified top secret information to unauthorized personnel, and they allowed her to delete 33,000 documents from her server during the following three weeks. The FBI and DOJ also allowed Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s personal lawyer, to invoke attorney-client privilege to prevent the FBI from further investigating Hillary Clinton’s email scheme, even though Mills too was under investigation at the time. Mills even stormed out of a meeting with the FBI in May of 2016, because a question supposedly breached that privilege.

 

As Andrew McCarthy of the National Review observed: “It was astonishing that the Justice Department indulged [Mills’] attorney-client privilege claim, which frustrated the FBI’s ability to question her … But it is simply unbelievable to find her turning up at Mrs. Clinton’s interview [and] participating in the capacity of a lawyer under circumstances where Clinton was being investigated over matters in which Mills participated as a non-lawyer government official.”

 

It may seem counter-intuitive, but the President must fire Mueller and Rosenstein and damn the consequences, while at the same time, he must demand that a judge require all of the seized documents to be reviewed by a court in order to determine which are relevant to any investigation and which violate attorney-client privilege. The President has the right and the authority to fire Robert Mueller for exceeding his original mandate, and by defending his own rights under the Constitution, he ultimately defends and protects individual Americans against an increasingly intrusive federal government.

 

In the meantime, one must assume that Mueller’s hit team, without any morals and unrestrained, will continue to lie, cheat, perjure themselves and mislead the American people, if that’s what it takes to secure Trump’s impeachment, and possibly a criminal conviction, in their attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election. It is left to us — Conservative America — to see through the lies and hit back harder and more determined by telling Congress, in no uncertain terms, that they had better throw their full support behind the President or look for another job

 

President Trump has committed no crime, but he remains the target of the Mueller inquisition and an unethical nightmare of a frame-job against him, all in the name of maintaining the elitist Establishment status quo and securing their unchallenged lock on the reins of power.  And it must be stopped — the lies and attempts to manufacture crimes — before it does more irreparable damage to our Republic and moves the nation closer to all out civil conflict, because this is not justice. It is a continued coup from within our own government.
