Real Crime is Leftist Collusion

What is collusion? Dictionary.com:

1. A secret agreement, especially for fraudulent or treacherous purposes; conspiracy: Some of his employees were in collusion to rob him.

2. Law. A secret understanding between two or more persons to gain something illegally, to defraud another of his or her rights, or to appear as adversaries through in agreement: collusion of husband and wife to obtain a divorce.

 

Testimony after testimony from Intelligence heads and even disgraced Clinton-liar former Director James Comey have said there has been NO collusion between then candidate Donald Trump and Russia to steal the election from proven Crooked Hillary. The Dems have closed their ears so badly to the truth, they keep on propagandize American voters there is an act collusion by President Trump, the Dems just can’t prove it yet.

 

The more provable collusion is between former AG Loretta Lynch telling former FBI Director not to say Crooked Hillary was under investigation. That Lynch directive included using the words “a matter” rather than investigation and a steely stare against Comey when showing the former AG a yet undisclosed document suggesting Crooked Hillary wrong-doing.

 

It is the American Left that gets away with the criminality of collusion in the USA!

 

David Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress (CMP) that released a series of undercover videos demonstrating that Planned Parenthood was killing live-birth babies to deliver the murdered babies intact for research purposes and monetary profit to private research labs.

 

AND YET Planned Parenthood nor the murderous perpetrators have been prosecuted for the crimes. BUT CMP, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt are being criminally persecuted – err I mean prosecuted – for exposing Planned Parenthood crimes.

 

The collusion between Leftist prosecutors and Planned Parenthood has to be a crime, right? Who prosecutes the prosecutors?

 

EVEN WORSE!

 

Now there is ample evidence between a judge adjudicating the trial against Daleiden and Merritt by placing a gag order on showing past and future CMP videos exposing Planned Parenthood criminality! You see, U.S. District Judge William Orrick has been on the Board of Directors of a clinic housing Planned Parenthood operations. Friends this is MORE LEFTIST COLLUSION protecting a Leftist agenda to perpetuate Obama’s agenda to “fundamentally transform America”.

Judge who censored undercover Planned Parenthood videos was on pro-abortion group’s board

Life Site News

 

U.S. District Judge William Orrick

 

CALIFORNIA, June 9, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) is seeking to disqualify the judge who censored its undercover footage of an abortion conference because of his ties to a pro-Planned Parenthood organization that lets the abortion company run a clinic on its premises.

 

When David Daleiden began releasing his now-famous exposé on the abortion industry’s participation in the baby body parts trade, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) took him to court. Daleiden had undercover recordings of its abortion trade show. NAF succeeded in getting U.S. District Judge William Orrick to issue a gag order preventing the release of this footage.

 

Last month, Daleiden’s attorneys released the footage. Some of the extended footage had already been leaked by Got News, but the video released by the CMP attorneys was more condensed and contained a compilation of the most shocking statements from abortionists at the conference.

 

Orrick then ordered Daleiden and his attorneys, Steve Cooley and Brentford J. Ferreira, to appear in court on June 14. They may face contempt of court charges for having released the video.

 

But CMP is arguing that Orrick should be disqualified from the case because he served on the board of an organization that houses a Planned Parenthood clinic. CMP’s motion to remove Orrick from the case says that Orrick’s affiliation with this organization shows “bias in favor of the plaintiff and prejudice against the defendants.”

 

The organization is Good Samaritan Family Resource Center (GSFRC) in San Francisco. It describes its relationship with Planned Parenthood as a “key partnership.” Orrick is a former GSFRC board member. He was GSRFC’s secretary of the board in 2001 “when GSFRC entered ‘key partnership’ with PPSP [Planned Parenthood],” the motion states.

 

“The video recordings that are the subject of this case include recordings of PPSP/PPNC staff members,” it says.

 

“At no time did Judge Orrick disclose to Defendants that he sat on the board of an organization that had as a ‘key partner’ an organization Defendants alleged, both in public statements and as part of their defense, was involved in violations of state and federal law,” CMP’s motion continues. “Judge Orrick did not disclose his close and long-standing relationship with an organization that houses a facility and hosts Planned Parenthood staff, whom NAF claims are in physical danger from ‘anti-abortion extremists’ incited by Defendants.”

 

The motion goes on to detail Orrick’s wife’s support of abortion on Facebook. Mrs. Orrick “liked” a National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) Facebook post that criticized CMP as “a sham organization run by extremists.”

 

In 2015, “Mrs. Orrick ‘pinkified’ her Facebook page and added ‘I stand with Planned Parenthood’ as a Facebook profile picture overlay.”

 

CMP’s attorneys explained:

 

Planned Parenthood urged its supporters to add these elements to their Facebook pages as part of a campaign orchestrated specifically in response to the release of videos by Mr. Daleiden and CMP. ‘Pinkifying’ showed one’s support for Planned Parenthood and one ’s belief that the videos were fraudulent.

 

Another cause for CMP’s concern is Mrs. Orrick “liked a Facebook Post by ‘Keep America Pro-Choice’ that applauded Mr. Daleiden being indicted in Texas.” It, and the “like” of the NARAL post, “were juxtaposed with a profile photo featuring Judge Orrick and Mrs. Orrick.”

 

As The Federalist‘s Mollie Hemingway uncovered at the time Orrick issued the initial gag order on the video, he is a major financial backer of pro-abortion former President Obama.

 

“He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen,” she reported.

 

He also donated more than $5,000 to GSFRC.

Dangerous Times


Justin Smith nails the sentiment on how real Americans must stand with President Trump even if he is not the perfect Conservative the Conservative-minded voting base that made him POTUS views flaws. Despite a lack of Conservative bona fides, President Trump drives the American Left into apoplectic fits and the President does have an agenda that makes America great.

Dangerous Times

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 5/19/2017 7:03 PM

 

I was a “Never Trump” guy for a matter of only days, during the Republican primary for many good reasons, that remain true and valid today. But DAMN. Come on people. All of you are out there proclaiming your Conservative and Christian principles and your love for America, but you are sitting quietly by, even now, and watching Her be destroyed before your very eyes. Conservative principles are great. I’m every bit as conservative as any of you, probably more so, however, if you really need this explained to you, here goes.

 

98% of all news reports on Trump over the past three months, according to a recent Harvard study, have been negative [Blog Editor: Actually, depending on the news outlet the percentage ranges from 80% to 98% being the worst].

 

What does this tell You?

 

Concerning the Trump-Russia Scandal, initially beginning as a counter-intelligence investigation into Russia hacking the election, there is ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE OF “COLLUSION” between Trump and the Russians. Aside from this fact, he is the President and he is empowered to speak to foreign heads of State on any issue by right of being Our President; if you seek real collusion, just look at when Obama was caught on an open mike, on March 26th 2012, telling the Russian President to wait until after the election, and he could “be more flexible”. Just look at Hillary Clinton’s deals to give away American uranium resources to Russia, as Secretary of State [Blog Editor: See how the Leftist MSM twist the truth into a lie with semantic spin moves].

 

Still Trump was acting accordingly, when he fired FBI Director Comey, because Comey was compromised from his affiliations with Clinton; he accepted $6 million from the Clinton Foundation, when he was CEO of Lockheed, and he mishandled the Clinton investigation into her handling of Top Secret and Classified information, trying to play both sides of the fence. Trump had to fire him. [Blog Editor: See HERE, HERE & HERE]

If James Comey believed President Trump was really trying to influence his investigation into Gen. Michael Flynn, when the President asked if he “could let it go”, then why did hid he wait three months to bring it up, and only after he was fired? Why is this memo, yet to be seen, just now being mentioned? If this memo exists, then James Comey’s ethical behavior once again comes under scrutiny. [Blog Editor: Justin’s wondering is right on the money! See HERE]

 

Comey evidently didn’t really believe that President Trump was trying to obstruct justice at the time. If he did, he was duty bound by law to report the conversation immediately to the House Senate Intelligence Committee.

 

Pragmatist, liberal Democrat, conman, convert to conservatism, Great American. Put any label you choose, however true or untrue it may be, on President Donald J Trump. The reality remains that President Trump has pursued more conservative items in his first 100 days than many “Never Trump” proponents suggested he would, and he saved the Supreme Court from going completely fascist. And I believe him to be a Fine American truly working to save this Exceptional America of Ours.

 

I’m not debating the pros and cons of what he’s done. I will say, that attempting to present a GOP healthcare bill and the trillion-dollar budget shouldn’t have occurred.

 

What many seem to miss is this. Trump has given the GOP both Houses of Congress under the Republican platform and a Republican nominated U.S. President, and this can act as a respite from the transformation of the nation into a total authoritarian socialist country in which citizens answer to government bureaucrats; this is where Obama and the Progressive commies were taking us.

 

Remember Trump’s great words only days ago at Liberty University. He said, “In America we don’t worship government, we worship God.” These words will flow throughout history, however, they also solidified the D.C. Establishment’s view that Trump is dangerous. And immediately afterwards, all manner of hell broke loose in the Left Wing media.

 

Now in desperation, the Democrats refuse to release their power and give up any gains under Obama, while America hears people such as Representatives Al Green (D-TX), Maxine Waters (D-CA) and prominent Democrat former Rep. Tom Perriello call for President Trump’s impeachment. We are seeing an inner struggle, that is nothing short of a coup attempt by Deep State bureaucrats in the FBI, CIA and NSA, “anonymous” leakers, the Leftist Commies in the “mainstream” media and their Progressive allies in both parties, as well as their strong-arm thugs in the streets. This is a total complete attempt to takeover, a very real coup attempt.

 

The Democrats might proceed with attempts to arrive at impeachment, but such proceedings cannot even reach the floor of the Senate without the Senate Majority Leader’s approval. McConnell hates Trump, but even he knows the proof of evidence has to be very solid, before moving for impeachment. Aside from all this, 25 Republicans would have to cross over and join the Democrats. That isn’t happening anytime soon, not without more substantial evidence.

 

Something that doesn’t exist cannot be found, no matter how much the Democrats wish their Lie to become the Truth.

 

Yes, Trump should survive impeachment attempts, but he and his administration will remain under constant attack. In order to minimize the efforts of the Progressive Democrat Communists, Trump must immediately embark on a purge of all Obama bureaucratic holdovers and replace them with solid Conservatives, Christians and Constitutional-minded Patriotic Americans.

 

Keep your precious principles, but don’t attack the Republican President, regardless of his lack of conservative credentials, and don’t inadvertently or willingly join in the clamor for impeachment, when there is absolutely zero grounds for it, and it is completely unwarranted. Do not aid this coup.

 

If you and other Republicans jump on this pile of manufactured Democratic manure, you are setting in motion a terrible precedent for the future and possibly dooming America to becoming just like the banana republics where the” rule of law” means little and men answer to dictators, rather than the State answering to their citizens. You and your ilk are aiding in the destruction of our Republic.

 

Trump is America’s Man, but only if You’re one of the people who want out from under the Globalists and the Establishment DC fascists. If this all out assault on the Trump administration and President Trump continues, the path ahead looks very much like another Civil War brewing. Whether America on the whole understands just how much so, these are the most dangerous times America has ever witnessed in my sixty years of sunrises. Don’t let the sun set on Our Republic.

Comey Fake News Round-Up — 8 FACTS Contradict The MSM’s Serial-Comey Lies


If you are a Conservative, you are fully aware that a majority of news from the Left Stream Media pertaining to Obama and/or Trump is tainted. Toward Obama it is the schmooze of messiahship – any news is good news. Toward Trump it is the Fake News lie to undermine President Trump and his Administration.

 

John Nolte enumerates at least eight lies perpetrated by the Lame Stream Media that has no purpose other than to discredit the man a majority of States voted into the Presidency.

 

Constitution.com has a great intro for the Nolte/Daily Wire article:

 

The great John Nolte should be profusely thanked for his constant efforts at unmasking the real progenitors of “fake news” in the mainstream media. This week he has laid bare their lies by focusing his time on one story in particular – the sad saga of former FBI Director James Comey.

Comey Fake News Round-Up — 8 FACTS Contradict The MSM’s Serial-Comey Lies

 

By JOHN NOLTE

MAY 12, 2017

The Daily Wire

 

Pinocchio Wooden Puppet

 

The idea that anyone would ever again take anything our national media reports with anything close to seriousness absolutely baffles me. Even Leftists, who eventually have to stand there with “Hands up, don’t shoot” all over their smug faces, should maybe take a breath. There is just no question anymore that the entire infrastructure of our media is constructed by a proven mob of serial liars who only get worse, infinitely worse, when they believe there is blood in the water.

 

We are living through another Golden Showers moment. Remember that fiasco? Remember Jake Tapper at CNN stopping the world to break the news about a fake dossier that smeared Donald Trump, a document that Tapper himself knew was fake? Remember Ben Smith at BuzzFeed taking the ball from there and using Tapper’s opening as an excuse to release the contents of a dossier he knew was fake? Remember the rest of the media then climbing aboard to report on a document they all knew was fake?

 

Well, now with the Comey firing, we are again being Golden Showered with such a torrent of fake news it is almost impossible to keep up.

 

But I’ll still give it a try!

 

So here it is, the latest and greatest from our MSM’s fire hose of fake Comey news (with a bonus #9)…

 

  1. TRUMP FIRED COMEY CUZ COMEY ASKED FOR MORE FUNDS TO EXPAND THE RUSSIAGATE INVESTIGATION!!!!!!!!!

 

Uh, no. Never happened.

 

And that is not only a lie, that is a lie that originally came from an anonymous source. Moreover, I believe the media-at-large has known all along it was a lie, which is why a story based on an anonymous source got so much national, widespread traction so quickly.

 

The idea was to plant this dishonest seed in the minds of the public before it was debunked. Anyone who covers the Justice Department would have known the story was a lie because this is not how F.B.I. funding works.

 

  1. DEPUTY ATTORNY GENERAL ROSENSTEIN THREATENED TO QUIT AFTER WHITE HOUSE BLAMED HIM FOR COMEY FIRING!!!!!

 

Yeah, no.

 

Never happened.

 

  1. THE WHITE HOUSE IS LYING ABOUT BAD MORALE AT THE F.B.I.!!!!

 

After Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders claimed that Comey’s tenure at the F.B.I., and his hyper-politicization of that role, had damaged morale at the agency, using anonymous sources (again), the Golden Shower-MSM again went on a Fake News Spree trying to prove the exact opposite was true.

 

Except, uhm…

 

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

 

Yossi Gestetner‏ Tweet

 

…yeah.

 

This is PBS, so naturally the full report is full of lies, but the truth did accidentally sneak through.

 

  1. TRUMP IS INTERFERING WITH THE F.B.I. INVESTIGATION INTO RUSSIA!!!

 

Not so much.

 

Andrew McCabe, the acting director of the F.B.I. (whose wife has serious ties to Hillary Clinton), told a Senate committee yesterday that the White House has no in any way impeded the investigation.

 

  1. TRUMP LIED ABOUT COMEY TELLING HIM HE IS NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION!!!!

 

Except, uhm, that is exactly what Comey said to Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, which Democrat Senator Dianne Feinsten quickly verified.

 

  1. THIS IS THE ‘SATURDAY NIGHT MASSACRE’ ON STEROIDS!!!

 

This isn’t even the “Saturday Night Massacre’s” little sister on a scooter.

 

By this time, eight months in the Watergate investigation, President Nixon was under investigation, people in his administration had already gone to jail, and Nixon’s closest aides and confidantes were just about to resign in disgrace.

 

Trump. Is. Not. Even. Under. Investigation.

 

Nor. Are. Any. Of. His. Top. Aides.

 

We are eight months into this Russia hoax and there is still no evidence of any wrongdoing.

 

None. Not a smidge. Zippo. Zero. Nada. Zilch.

 

  1. IT’S A COVER UP!!!

 

Then why are Carter Page and Roger Stone chomping at the bit to testify in public before Congress, while…

 

…former-Obama right-hand woman, Unmasker-In Chief Susan Rice is refusing to testify?

 

  1. THIS IS THE BIGGEST SCANDAL IN YEARS!!!

 

Only in your provincial head.

 

Look at that graph; how much more evidence does one need to grasp the fact that all this hilarious crying of wolf from the MSM has given the American public what one might call…

 

Golden Showers Fatigue.

 

[Blog Editor: The link in the word “graph” above is to the blog FiveThirtyEight.com. The post is entitled, “How To Know if The Trump-Russia Story Has Momentum”. Below is the graph referred to by John Nolte for easier access:

 

Fivethirtyeight.com Graph: Google Searches Graph-Russia Story Short Burst Attention]

 

(BONUS) 9. SEE THE MATRIX — THIS IS REALLY A MEDIA COVER-UP

 

Before I sign off for the weekend, let me give you a glimpse into The Matrix — into what is really going and why…

 

1.During the campaign, the Obama administration spied on Trump and his team. We know this because the very same media now lying about it, reported on the fact that Obama spied on Trump. The idea was to use this Russian-hoax as a means to personally destroy Trump after he lost the presidential election. This would be the weapon used to dismantle his business empire and his life.

 

  1. We know from media reports that the Obama administration spied on Trump and his team, and did so  brazenly and without fear. They knew the MSM would never punish them. They also believed Hillary would win. Furthermore, Hillary also knew about the spying and the plan to use the Russia hoax as a means to personally destroy Trump after the election. Trust me, had Trump lost, the Democrats and MSM were far from done with him.

 

  1. The MSM was party to all of this. After all, they were the ones benefitting from leaks that could only have come from surveillance and wiretaps. In fact, the MSM reported that these leaks had come from wiretaps on Trump’s team. The media also believed Trump would lose the election but the idea was to set up the Russia hoax as a means to personally destroy him post-election. This is why the media showed no initial reluctance when it came to reporting on the Obama administration’s spying.

 

  1. No one, including the MSM, believed there would ever be any consequences for all of this illegal spying. After all, it was only a matter of how BIG Hillary’s victory would be. Then…

 

  1. The bottom fell out after Trump won the presidency. At this point, a potential disaster loomed. The Obama administration and the media knew that Trump now would be in a position to not only uncover Obama’s spying, but to prosecute him for it. So…

 

  1. The Russia hoax, including the Golden Shower Dossier, was whipped out as a means to cover up Barry’s spying, to protect The Precious from his administration’s illegal activity.

 

  1. Now that he is president, the Russia hoax is now being used by the media to knock Trump’s agenda off track and to destroy his presidency.

 

 

The media lies. That is all they do.

 

Stop taking proven liars seriously.

 

Stop believing.

 

Stop listening.

 

Stop reading.

 

Enjoy your weekend.

 

[Blog Editor: For those of you out of touch with one of the best science fiction movies ever made – The Matrix. Here is a bit of a synopsis to relate to John Nolte’s analogy courtesy of Wikipedia:

 

Red pill and blue pill

 

 

The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are popular cultural symbols representing the choice between:

 

  • Knowledgefreedomand the sometimes painful truth of reality (red pill)

 

  • Falsehoodsecurityand the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue pill)

 

The terms, popularized in science fiction culture, are derived from the 1999 film The Matrix. In the film, the main character, Neo, is offered the choice between a red pill and a blue pill. The red pill would allow him to escape from the Matrix and into the real world, therefore living the “truth of reality” even though it is a harsher, more difficult life; the blue pill would lead him to staying in the Matrix, living in a pretend comfortable world.

Former FBI Assistant Directors Weigh In On Comey’s Firing


Failing to recommend Crooked Hillary to be prosecuted is a good enough reason alone to fire now former FBI Director James Comey. Nonetheless, it is quite apparent that Comey’s politicization of the FBI was frustrating enough among the rank and file, that Comey had to go.

Former FBI Assistant Directors Weigh In On Comey’s Firing

“Jim Comey danced with the devil …”

 

By Andrew Kerr

May 10, 2017 at 8:19am

Western Journalism

 

Three former assistant directors of the FBI joined Fox News Tuesday night to share their thoughts on President Donald Trump’s decision to fire James Comey.

 

All three thought Comey had it coming, and some were glad to see it happen.

 

Former FBI Assistant Directors James Kallstrom, Bill Gavin and Ron Hosko all thought Comey sealed his fate after his July 5 press conference in which he assumed the role of a prosecutor and recommended no charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

 

“I’m glad it happened,” Kallstrom said of Comey’s firing. “I think Jim Comey way back almost a year ago kind of forgot he was the FBI director.”

 

“Jim Comey danced with the devil, and later on down the road talked about this great investigation the FBI conducted,” he said.

 

“Of course, they had no subpoena power, they couldn’t compel any investigation or search warrants. They had to beg people to look at things. The interview of Hillary Clinton, in my view, was a sham.”

 

WJ VIDEO: Comey Danced with the Devil
//content.jwplatform.com/players/lIMx5FPa-8VMBVIXd.html
Comey “threw the FBI under the bus, and the reputation of the FBI under the bus,” Kallstrom added. “That’s what I am very mad about and have been very mad about for a long time.”

 

Gavin said Comey’s firing was “something that had to happen.”

 

“Jim Comey is a bright guy, he’s an ethical guy, but the bottom line is when he made a prosecutive opinion in an investigative matter he made a mistake,” he added.

 

“We all make mistakes in life — this was a big one that was obvious to everyone.”

 

Hosko said Comey’s firing was “shocking” but he wasn’t surprised in the least bit.

 

“Certainly there are going to be some FBI who think [Comey] went too far back in July,” Hosko said. “I think, that is, reasonable minds can agree, the province of the prosecutor.”

 

He thought Comey was forced to “throw himself on a grenade” over former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s airport tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton. Comey’s firing was the “price he had to pay,” Hosko said.

Was Obama’s White House Politicizing Intelligence To Influence The 2016 Elections


Intro to ‘Was Obama’s White House Politicizing Intelligence To Influence The 2016 Elections’

Blog Editor John R. Houk

By Fred Fleitz

Posted 4/6/17

 

The Dems and the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) have been hell-bent to disqualify President Trump since election day 2016. All disqualification agendas seem to gravitate around President Trump colluded with Russia to win over Crooked Hillary.

 

It is my belief the “collusion” accusation is horse pucky, but Russian attempts to manipulate the American voter is very possible. AND if POSSIBLE turns into reality, Russia needs to suffer any kind consequences the Trump Administration is willing to inflict. By inflict I mean at least with a Cold War-style agitation to see how far the Russians are willing to confront the still most powerful nation in the world which of course is the United States of America.

 

That being said, the continuous disparaging of President Trump should be examined by the Trump Administration Department of Justice for crimes by Dems, the Left MSM, current government civil servant lifers loyal to BHO AND former Obama Administration Officials INCLUDING the treasonous former President Barack Hussein Obama.

 

My thoughts on American collusion with evil leads me to a Fred Fleitz article entitled, “Was Obama’s White House Politicizing Intelligence To Influence The 2016 Elections”.

Was Obama’s White House Politicizing Intelligence To Influence The 2016 Elections

 

By Fred Fleitz

April 6, 2017

The Federalist

 

The truth is that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies did not conclude that Russia tried to interfere in the election or help Trump win. Not even close.

 

Although there are strong indications the Obama administration abused intelligence collection by U.S. agencies to gather information on the Trump campaign to leak to the news media, it also appeared to abuse another U.S. intelligence mission: intelligence analysis.

 

Congressional Democrats and the mainstream media consider it gospel truth that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies unanimously concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help Donald Trump win. But should we treat this assessment as true in light of major errors in U.S. intelligence analysis in the past and its politicization? Is something gospel truth just because U.S. intelligence agencies say it is?

 

The truth is that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies did not conclude that Russia tried to interfere in the election or help Trump win. Not even close.

 

What Intelligence Has Really Confirmed About Russia

 

U.S. intelligence agencies issued two assessments on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The first was an October 7 statement by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that said WikiLeaks disclosures of Democratic emails during the election were “consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts” but did not say there was any evidence of Russian involvement.

 

Moreover, although this statement said the U.S. intelligence community held this position, the memo was issued by only two agencies, and was called a “Joint DHS and ODNI Election Security Statement.” Hillary Clinton seized on this statement in the last presidential debate on October 19 by inaccurately claiming “We have 17, 17 intelligence agencies, civilian and military who have all concluded that these espionage attacks, these cyber attacks, come from the highest levels of the Kremlin.”

 

The fact that this memo was not an intelligence community document issued by all agencies with equities in this issue was very unusual. It also was suspicious that an unclassified intelligence analysis so advantageous to one presidential candidate was issued just before the election and only two weeks before the last presidential debate. In my view, this looked like looked like a clumsy attempt by the Obama White House to issue an intelligence assessment to boost Clinton’s presidential campaign and hurt the Trump campaign.

 

The second intelligence assessment on this question, issued on January 6, 2017, I believe represents a serious instance of a presidential administration manipulating U.S. intelligence analysis to issue a politicized analysis to sabotage an incoming president from a different political party. The January 6 analysis found that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and hurt Hillary’s candidacy to promote Trump. The assessment said this interference came at the direction of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

 

What About All the Missing Intelligence Agencies?

 

Like the October memo, congressional Democrats and the news media have said this was the unanimous conclusion of all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies. But also like the October memo, this was not the case. The January 6 assessment was an “Intelligence Community Assessment.” Such analyses are usually issued and cleared by most if not all U.S. intelligence agencies and have a statement on the first page that usually reads “this is an IC-coordinated assessment.”

 

The January 6 Intelligence Community Assessment lacked such a statement because it reflected the views of only three U.S. intelligence agencies: Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and National Security Agency. The CIA and FBI concluded with high confidence that Russia intervened in the election to help Trump win. NSA concluded this with moderate confidence.

 

Why did other U.S. intelligence agencies with major equities in this issue not participate in the January 6 assessment? Why were the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Homeland Security part of the October assessment but not the January one? Where were the Defense Intelligence Agency, the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research, and the military intelligence agencies?

 

The January assessment also was very unusual because it was such a conclusive analysis of a very controversial subject with no dissenting views. Based my CIA experience, this is unprecedented and makes me wonder whether intelligence agencies that may have dissented were deliberately excluded.

 

There also is the question as to whether this assessment was written to conform to a predetermined conclusion by the Obama White House to undermine the Trump administration. The U.S. intelligence community has played political games like this before with interagency assessments to promote political agendas. One of the most notorious examples of this was the controversial 2007 National Intelligence Estimate on Iran’s nuclear program that was intended to undermine President Bush’s Iran policy.

 

There Are Indications Intelligence Has Been Politicized

 

CIA Director John Brennan’s role in approving this assessment raises serious questions about whether it was manipulated for political reasons. Brennan has been heavily criticized for politicizing intelligence for the Obama administration. This includes the role he played in the 2012 CIA talking points on the Benghazi terrorist attacks. He also has been openly and extremely hostile toward Trump before and after the election.

 

Given FBI Director James Comey’s statements at a recent House Intelligence Committee hearing that the conclusion in the January 6 assessment that Russia intervened in the election to help Trump was based on logic and not evidence, it is hard to believe this was not a pre-cooked conclusion driven by the highly partisan Brennan.

 

I strongly believe that if there were any evidence that Russia intervened in the election to help Trump win, or that Russia and the Trump campaign collaborated to affect the outcome of the election, this intelligence would have been leaked by Obama holdovers in government and the so-called “Deep State” to The New York Times long ago. The fact that Comey could not point to such evidence and this information has not been leaked suggests there is no such evidence because this didn’t happen.

 

The current congressional investigations of possible Russian interference in the election and the Obama administration’s misuse of U.S. intelligence collection to surveil the Trump campaign must also include whether intelligence analysis was politicized to damage Trump’s candidacy and presidency. These investigations must look at how the above analyses were drafted, who drafted them, and why some agencies did not participate. The committees also need to uncover any evidence of the White House trying to influence the outcome of these assessments or excluding certain agencies from participating.

 

It is time to call out Democrats and reporters who portray the idea that Russia intervened in the election to help Trump win as established truth because it is the unanimous assessment of all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies. I expect the congressional investigations will conclude this claim is false and actually represented a deliberate effort to manipulate intelligence analysis to undermine the Trump presidency.

Newbill Thoughts in Conspiracies Inbox


Tony Newbill’s theme in this post is the Dem fake news of Trump/Russia collusion to win the 2016 election as POTUS. Even though some of this info is old news, too many people listen to the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) as gospel truth.

 

There is some treason going on here. I pray criminal activities are revealed so the American people can learn that the Dems main goal is to eradicate the U.S. Constitution as we know and to continue Obama’s dream utopia of fundamentally transforming America.

 

The last post is off topic to the rest of Newbill’s emails. That post is a video of Alex Jones bring clarity to his Pizzagate disavowal which includes a warning that there are pedophilia rings, the Clintons have a connection and the American Left is doing its best to silence reporting either by outright censorship or by falsely impugning reputations of those exposing pedophilia. Take some time to watch the entire Alex Jones video.

Hypocrisy, thy name is

 

According to the New York Times, FBI Director James Comey is reported to be requesting the President Trump Department of Justice to refute the possibility of the FBI having intercepted communications from Trump Tower in the latest “Wire Tapping” denial.

 

So lets [sic] give this request by Director Comey some context.

 

It was only a few weeks ago when the same FBI went to President Trump’s Chief of Staff and told Reince Priebus there was no truth to media reports, based on FBI leaks, of FBI evidence showing Trump campaign officials involved with Russian officials regarding the 2016 election.  It was all a complete nothingburger.

 

Details – On February 15th while discussing another issue FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe asked Reince for 5 minutes alone after the meeting.  At the one-on-one meeting McCabe told Priebus the New York Times Russia and Trump campaign story was a “bunch of BS”.

 

Priebus asked McCabe if McCabe would be able to say that publicly and get the media off his back about a ridiculously false narrative.  Asst. Director McCabe said he would check with his boss, FBI Director James Comey.  Later, McCabe called back and said he couldn’t issue a statement about it.

 

Reince Preibus/McCabe dialogue 2-24-17

 

Reince Priebus was simply asking for the FBI to give truthful information about the false reports to the public.  The White House was asking Comey to deliver transparency.

 

Quote from the FBI to Priebus: “We’d love to help, but we can’t get into the position of making statements on every story”.

 

Oh, but now, when there are “false wire-tapping reports” about Director Comey, now, N.O.W he wants the Trump administration, via the DOJ, to help him out and deny the FBI had any involvement in surveillance of Trump Tower, candidate Donald Trump or President-Elect Donald Trump.

 

Now, when it fits Comey’s preferred sensibility.  Now he wants a clear and transparent record.  The hypocrisy is thick with this guy.

 

 

Screw you James Comey!

Wikileaks: CIA hackers can pose as Russians—ring a bell?

https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/03/07/wikileaks-cia-hackers-can-pose-as-russians-ring-a-bell/

 

(Part-2, here)

 

Let’s see. The CIA claims that Russian government hackers interfered in the US election, on the side of Trump.

 

But suppose CIA hackers fabricated an operation to make it look like a Russian hack? Too far-fetched?

 

Not anymore.

 

In conjunction with their new data-dump of CIA material, WikiLeaks issues this statement:

 

“The CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation. With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the ‘fingerprints’ of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from.”

 

Spy games.

 

A group within the CIA wanted to shift blame for Hillary Clinton’s defeat? How about pointing at the Russians? “Easy. We can use Russian hacking tools and fabricate a scenario. We can say we discovered ‘fingerprints’ that point to the Russian government.”

 

Here is what the CNN Wire Service reported on January 2, 2017:

 

“…even as President-elect Donald Trump and his aides cast doubt on the links between Russia and recent hacks against Democrats, US intelligence officials say that newly identified ‘digital fingerprints’ indicate Moscow was behind the intrusions.”

“One official told CNN the administration has traced the hack to the specific keyboards — which featured Cyrillic characters — that were used to construct the malware code, adding that the equipment leaves ‘digital fingerprints’ and, in the case of the recent hacks, those prints point to the Russian government.”

 

Really? We live in a world where spies and their cronies are constantly fixing reality to suit themselves.

 

So now all this bravado about discovering how the Russians hacked and stole the election blows up like a cream puff with a firecracker inside.

 

Who originally hacked/accessed the Democratic National Committee (DNC) email files and handed them to WikiLeaks for publication? That appeared to be an insider at the DNC. But the cover story—“the Russians did it”—floated by the CIA other US intelligence agencies now takes on a new hue.

In my previous article, I mentioned how, according to the latest WikiLeaks CIA data dump, the CIA can fabricate, yes, fabricate the “fingerprints” of Russian government hackers and create the false impression that Russians hacked the US presidential campaign of 2016.

 

But there’s more.

 

Commenting on its CIA data dump, WikiLeaks also describes a wide-ranging CIA espionage plan to infiltrate the candidates running in the 2012 French presidential election. These are, of course, the same CIA thieves who assure us that Russia interfered in the 2016 US election campaign. CIA credibility? Zero. Who has time to try to sort out when the liars might not be lying?

 

WikiLeaks, Press Release, 16 February, 2017:

 

“All major French political parties were targeted for infiltration by the CIA’s human (‘HUMINT’) and electronic (‘SIGINT’) spies in the seven months leading up to France’s 2012 presidential election. The revelations are contained within three CIA tasking orders published today by WikiLeaks as context for its forth coming CIA Vault 7 series. Named specifically as targets are the French Socialist Party (PS), the National Front (FN) and Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) together with current President Francois Hollande, then President Nicolas Sarkozy, current round one presidential front runner Marine Le Pen, and former presidential candidates Martine Aubry and Dominique Strauss-Khan.”

“The CIA assessed that President Sarkozy’s party was not assured re-election. Specific tasking concerning his party included obtaining the ‘Strategic Election Plans’ of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP); schisms or alliances developing in the UMP elite; private UMP reactions to Sarkozy’s campaign stratagies [sic]; discussions within the UMP on any ‘perceived vulnerabilities to maintaining power’ after the election; efforts to change the party’s ideological mission; and discussions about Sarkozy’s support for the UMP and ‘the value he places on the continuation of the party’s dominance’.

… In the case of President Donald Trump, …  the president’s claims that he was wiretapped, that is, illegally spied upon, by his predecessor’s administration, former President Barack Obama.

 

As I have written in this Newsmax blog and elsewhere particularly of late, my client, former NSA and CIA contractor Dennis Montgomery, holds the keys to disproving the false claims of those representatives and senators on the House and Senate intelligence committees, reportedly as well as FBI Director James Comey, that there is no evidence that the president and his men were wiretapped.

 

Montgomery left the NSA and CIA with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information, much of which is classified, and sought to come forward legally as a whistleblower to appropriate government entities, including congressional intelligence committees, to expose that the spy agencies were engaged for years in systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen such as Donald Trump, and even yours truly. Working side by side with Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence (DIA), James Clapper, and Obama’s former Director of the CIA, John Brennan, Montgomery witnessed “up close and personal” this “Orwellian Big Brother” intrusion on privacy, likely for potential coercion, blackmail or other nefarious purposes.

 

 

[Blog Editor: The next paragraph is the part of the Newsmax report Newbill focused on in the email.]

 

… Under grants of immunity, which I obtained through Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, Montgomery produced the hard drives and later was interviewed under oath in a secure room at the FBI Field Office in the District of Columbia. There he laid out how persons like then-businessman Donald Trump were illegally spied upon by Clapper, Brennan, and the spy agencies of the Obama administration. He even claimed that these spy agencies had manipulated voting in Florida during the 2008 presidential election, which illegal tampering resulted in helping Obama to win the White House.

 

This interview, conducted and videoed by Special FBI Agents Walter Giardina and William Barnett, occurred almost two years ago, and nothing that I know of has happened since. It would appear that the FBI’s investigation was buried by Comey, perhaps because the FBI itself collaborates with the spy agencies to conduct illegal surveillance.

What does Hillary Clinton, CrowdStrike, Ukraine Russian Conflict and Russian Hacking have to do with one another????

http://www.voanews.com/a/crowdstrike-comey-russia-hack-dnc-clinton-trump/3776067.html

 

WASHINGTON —  An influential British think tank and Ukraine’s military are disputing a report that the U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike has used to buttress its claims of Russian hacking in the presidential election.

 

The CrowdStrike report, released in December, asserted that Russians hacked into a Ukrainian artillery app, resulting in heavy losses of howitzers in Ukraine’s war with Russian-backed separatists.

 

But the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) told VOA that CrowdStrike erroneously used IISS data as proof of the intrusion. IISS disavowed any connection to the CrowdStrike report. Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense also has claimed combat losses and hacking never happened.

 

 

While questions about CrowdStrike’s findings don’t disprove allegations of Russian involvement, they do add to skepticism voiced by some cybersecurity experts and commentators about the quality of their technical evidence.

 

 

Alperovitch, a Russian expatriate and senior fellow at the Atlantic Council policy research center in Washington, co-founded CrowdStrike in 2011. The firm has employed two former FBI heavyweights: Shawn Henry, who oversaw global cyber investigations at the agency, and Steven Chabinsky, who was the agency’s top cyber lawyer and served on an Obama White House cybersecurity commission in 2016. Chabinsky left CrowdStrike last year.

 

 

In a January post on LinkedIn, Carr called CrowdStrike’s evidence in the Ukraine “flimsy.” He told VOA in an interview that CrowdStrike mistakenly assumed that the X-Agent malware employed in the hacks was a reliable fingerprint for Russian actors.

 

“We now know that’s false,” he said, “and that the source code has been obtained by others outside of Russia.” READ ENTIRETY (Think Tank: Cyber Firm at Center of Russian Hacking Charges Misread Data; By Oleksiy Kuzmenko and Pete Cobus; VOA; Last Updated 3/23/17 11:17 AM)

Crowdstrike’s Danger Close intelligence report is an analytic failure of epic proportions, but more importantly, it has harmed the morale of the people of Ukraine as well as cast doubt in the minds of the Ukrainian soldiers who relied upon the artillery app maligned by Crowdstrike.

 

In addition, Adam Meyers and Dmitri Alperovich chose to quote a pro-Russian military blogger’s exaggerated figures of an 80% loss rate of Ukraine’s D-30 artillery caused in part by a variant of the same malware used in the DNC hack.

 

The Ministry of Ukraine denies the allegations and states that the number of lost artillery is less than 80% and they lost no artillery due to READ THE REST (Crowdstrike Needs To Address The Harm It Caused Ukraine; By Jeffrey Carr; LinkedIn; 1/16/17)

 

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/03/20/fix-is-in-comey-praised-dnc-hired-cybersecurity-firm-even-after-botched-report/

 

Crowdstrike, the cybersecurity company working for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), released a report tying “Russian hacking” to an incident that never happened, yet even after the report had been debunked, FBI Director James Comey still referred to Crowdstrike as a “highly respected private company” at a Senate hearing.

 

By issuing a still-unrestricted report about an incident that never happened and then tying it to the alleged Russian hacks that Democrats claim tipped the elections for Pres. Trump, the DNC-employed Crowdstrike’s credibility deserves to be called into question, however, despite excellent reporting by cybersecurity expert Jeffrey Carr, Bloomberg’s Leonid Bershidsky, and Voice of America reporter Oleksiy Kuzmenko, the media has ignored the story and continued to cite Crowdstrike’s work… even after the Ukrainian Defense Ministry issued a statement on January 6th, 2017 refuting Crowdstrike’s claims.

 

Even more troubling than the media malfeasance about the discredited Crowdstrike report, in testimony in front of the Senate intelligence committee on January 10 – four days after the Ukrainian DOD denied Crowdstrike’s report — Director Comey admitted that the FBI had been denied access to the DNC servers and praised Crowdstrike, without mentioning that they worked for the DNC or that their recent report had been debunked.

 

 

If Henry’s statement to the Washington Post seems more political than technical, that’s because Crowdstrike was being utilized by their clients at the Democratic National Committee to put out a narrative about Russian hacking to use against the Trump campaign. As later confirmed by a laudatory piece in Esquire magazine, starting in June 2016 the DNC used Crowdstrike executives Alperovitch and Henry as part of an anti-Trump publicity plan related to allegations of Russian hacking:

 

 

The Democrats’ attempts to smear Donald Trump with allegations of Russian involvement failed to win them the election and by December the Obama administration was taking a number of steps to make the incoming president’s job as difficult as possible.

CrowdStrike has failed in a bid to prevent the NSS Labs endpoint security report from going public at RSA after a court in Delaware refused to side with the firm’s arguments.

 

The CrowdStrike Falcon Host, which aims to combine “next-generation antivirus, endpoint detection and response and proactive features” to keep enterprise systems secure, is the product NSS Labs included in both public and private testing.

 

However, it is allegations of underhanded tactics and alleged poor testing methods which are at the heart of the matter — rather than the results themselves.

 

 

On February 13, the Federal Court denied CrowdStrike’s bid, allowing NSS Labs to go ahead and release the results of the endpoint tests.

 

 

The endpoint security report, available to subscribers, analyzed the security of 13 vendors which offer endpoint protection solutions.

 

The vendors included in the report were Carbon Black, CrowdStrike, ESET, Fortinet, Invincea, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, McAfee, SentinelOne, Sophos, Symantec, and Trend Micro.

 

Out of the 13, nine received a “Recommend” rating, one received “Security Recommended,” one was “Neutral” and two were in “Caution.”

 

 

While 11 products were granted an “above average” value, two were rated as having a “below average” value — one of which being CrowdStrike’s Falcon platform.

 

According to the subscription-only report, obtained by ZDNet, the Falcon Host received an overall security effectiveness rating of 73.2 percent and a score of 99 percent for evasion techniques tested. After what NSS Labs calls “initial tuning,” the company’s solution did not alert on false positives during testing.

 

As a result, the CrowdStrike Falcon Host received a “caution” rating, alongside Malwarebytes, which only gained an overall security effectiveness rating of READ ENTIRETY (CrowdStrike denied bid to block security report in legal challenge against ”subversive” NSS Labs; By Charlie Osborne for Zero Day; ZDNet; 2/15/17 12:24 GMT (04:24 PST))

Why didn’t Hillary Clinton’s DNC let the FBI Look at the Servers …?

Sent 3/29/2017 12:06 PM

 

We need to start asking this question …. Why didn’t Hillary Clinton’s DNC let the FBI Look at the Servers that the DNC said were Hacked by Russians???????

 

As of today, many months after the election, no one has put forth any evidence that Russia hacked anything related to the election whatsoever. None. The closest thing anyone has even resembling evidence is the word of CrowdStrike, the company hired by the DNC to investigate their servers, after someone released emails showing that Democratic party officials had been working behind the scenes to discredit and disable the Bernie Sanders campaign.

 

There are several problems with the CrowdStrike angle however. The first problem, is that the DNC refused to allow the FBI to look at the servers themselves. The FBI instead just took their word for it. The second problem is that CrowdStrike has a SIGNIFICANT conflict of interest in this situation. Google is a major stakeholder in CrowdStrike, and Eric Schmidt the Executive Chairman of Alphabet (the parent company of Google) was working directly on the Clinton campaign effort. He was providing tech assistance, he drew up her campaign plan, and he was even photographed wearing a “staff” badge in an exclusive area during election night.

Eric Schmidt wore “Staff” Badge at Clinton Election Night Party

 

This doesn’t pass the smell test, at all.

 

Furthermore, the anti-Russian angle peddled by CrowdStrike was premised on the “fact” that the malware used in the attack was of Russian origin. As any security expert will tell you, once malware is used in the wild, anyone can pick it up and use it (including other state actors).

To bolster their claim, CrowdStrike attempted to draw parallels to a supposed hack on Ukrainian artillery communications that used the same technique. That however, blew up in their face when both the Ukrainian military and the International Institute for Strategic Studies came forward to debunk their assessment.

 

Then there is the fact that Wikileaks has been very clear about the fact that their source was NOT Russian.

 

    “We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,”

 

The rabbit hole on this topic goes deeper, and clearly there is room for a lively debate, but it takes a willful act of intellectual dishonesty to treat it as a slam dunk case where the villain is clearly defined.

 

Anyone who has studied crowd psychology knows that one of the most important principles of ideological contagion is repetition. It doesn’t matter if something is true or false. If you repeat something enough times people will start believing it. Once an idea becomes an accepted belief, it takes on characteristics of religious orthodoxy. To question becomes heresy.

This article is not intended to alter your position in regard to Donald Trump in any way. Whether you love him or hate him isn’t an issue of global importance, nor is his political survival relevant to this analysis. Some of the tactics being used in the push to take Trump down however, are.

 

THE STAKES

 

Before we dive into the quagmire that the topic of of Russia, Trump and the 2016 elections has become, it behoves [sic] us to anchor to the stakes: Russia is a nuclear power. The demonization of foreign nations is a precursor to war, and even a limited conflict between the United States and Russia would kill millions (if not billions) of people; rendering much of the planet uninhabitable for decades. Using U.S. Russian relations as a political football in this context is foolish and irresponsible.

 

THE TRUMP VARIABLE

 

Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign made tying Trump to Russia a central pillar of their messaging strategy. This line of attack was predicated on comments made by Trump over the years expressing respect for Putin. …

 

 

Clinton used these and other statements to weave the narrative that Trump is “Putin’s puppet”. The mainstream media, and left-leaning blogosphere took that narrative and ran with it. Those who didn’t were labeled “fake news”, and attacked as collaborators. The goal was to capitalize on existing anti-Russian sentiment by attaching it to Trump and his supporters (and to pressure those on the fence distance themselves).

 

 

THE RUSSIAN HACKING ALLEGATIONS

 

 

Now playing loose and fast with the facts for political purposes is a mainstay of American partisanship, but when foreign policy gets thrown into the mix, and “leaders” start accusing a nuclear power of “an act of war” the facts matter.

 

As of today, many months after the election, no one has put forth any evidence that Russia hacked anything related to the election whatsoever. None. The closest thing anyone has even resembling evidence is the word of CrowdStrike, the company hired by the DNC to investigate their servers, after someone released emails showing that Democratic party officials had been working behind the scenes to discredit and disable the Bernie Sanders campaign.

 

There are several problems with the CrowdStrike angle however. The first problem, is that the DNC refused to allow the FBI to look at the servers themselves. The FBI instead just took their word for it. The second problem is that CrowdStrike has a SIGNIFICANT conflict of interest in this situation. Google is a major stakeholder in CrowdStrike, and Eric Schmidt the Executive Chairman of Alphabet (the parent company of Google) was working directly on the Clinton campaign effort. He was providing tech assistance, he drew up her campaign plan, and he was even photographed wearing a “staff” badge in an exclusive area during election night.

 

 

THE LONG TERM CONSEQUENCES

 

The short term political utility of tying Trump to Russia has blinded many on the left to the long term effect such a strategy is bound to have. Consider for a moment the implications of an entire generation being raised in the United States right now marinating in news and commentary which frames Russia as enemy number #1 (or #2 depending on where Trump supposedly fits). The facts and specifics won’t matter to these formative minds. It all boils down to sentiment. This sentiment can (and likely will) be used in ways that those fomenting it never imagined.

 

A recent poll by Reuters found that a stunning 82% of Americans now view Russia as a threat. This is a ticking time bomb.

 

It is a strategic error to assume anti-Russian propaganda will always work in the favor of the political left. Remember the original Mccarthyism. Neocon Republicans like John Mccain [Blog Editor: I don’t agree with the author that McCain is a Neocon. Regardless of the propaganda Neocons are patriots that used to be Leftists. McCain is a downright GOP Establishment RINO] and Mike Pence [Blog Editor: VP Pence is hardly a Neocon. He has been a Conservative values Christian most of – if not all – his political career.] would like nothing more than a chance to clip Putin’s wings, and in the right context that’s exactly what they would attempt to do. By linking Russia to Trump (arguably one of the most hated political figures in American history) the left is unwittingly laying the psychological groundwork for war.

 

If and when the moment comes where a Republican president decides to escalate tensions with Moscow (by direct or proxy intervention), “progressives” will find themselves in an extremely uncomfortable dilemma: either they get carried along with their enemies in the wave of anti-Russian sentiment they helped create, or they try to reverse tack and play opposition.

 

Reversing tack wouldn’t be easy under any circumstances, but in the midst of a crisis it would be all but impossible, and such protests would be easily shot down with snippets of their own words. Hypocrisy is after all, a vulnerability in and of itself. READ ENTIRETY (DEMONIZING RUSSIA: THE PSYCHOLOGY AND CONSEQUENCES OF NEO-MCCARTHYISM; StormCloudsGathering.com; 3/28/17)

Obama aide rats on Obama: ‘I helped spy on Trump for Obama’. Evelyn Farkas, an Obama administration insider, has become the latest Democrat to roll over and squeal on her former comrades, telling MSNBC that she helped spy on Trump for Obama before he left office, and that Trump, not Russians, was the target of the illegal surveillance

Blog Editor: A link was sent as a comment by Tony Newbill under another pseudonym he uses more often these days: Tommy Tunes. The thing is I don’t remember the comment other than it was a bit out of place for the post it was on. Perhaps Tony/Tommy removed the comment. Nevertheless, the comment pointed to an Alex Jones video of an episode of InfoWars devoted entirely to elitist pedophilia. In the 1:34:27 episode Jones clarifies his disavowal of Pizzagate but only as it pertains to the pizzerias themselves. The clarification is that Leftist pedophiles of the Dem Party/Crooked Hillary inclusion used those pizzerias as fundraising locations and that pedophilia conversations undoubtedly took place in the largely ignorant pizzerias. I placed this at the end because this entry has little to do with the theme of the rest of the post yet is so right-on that every should watch, listen and learn.

GOHMERT EXPLAINS WHY COMEY HAD TO NOTIFY CONGRESS

Rep. Louie Gohmert provides another reason FBI Director James Comey notified Congress that he was reopening the Crooked Hillary investigation. That reason had less to do with conscience and more to do with concern about perjuring himself in Congressional testimony addressing Comey’s previous decision not to recommend prosecution.

GOHMERT EXPLAINS WHY COMEY HAD TO NOTIFY CONGRESS

Also reveals only way Hillary will ‘answer for some of the things she’s done’

While many Democrats publicly fume at FBI Director James Comey and many Republicans sense political opportunity, a member of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee tells WND and Radio America the letter was really Comey’s way of avoiding a perjury investigation against him in Congress.

 

On Friday, Comey sent a letter to several committee and subcommittee chairman and ranking members, informing them that new emails “pertinent to the investigation” had been discovered. Twice in the three-paragraph letter, Comey noted his duty to keep Congress up to speed on the case.

 

“Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work, I believe it is important to update your Committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony,” Comey stated.

 

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said this really boils down to Comey keeping his sworn promise to lawmakers given during testimony in the wake of the FBI refusing to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton.

 

“It is actually the director of the FBI avoiding lying to Congress. He said he would update us,” Gohmert told WND and Radio America. “I think at the time he said it, he probably did not anticipate that there was going to be any other developments sufficient to get him to pursue the case further.”

 

What do YOU think? Is FBI Director James Comey a hero or villain? Sound off in today’s WND poll

 

Shortly after the Comey letter was reported, sources within the FBI revealed that the newly discovered emails were found on a device belonging to Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y.

 

Gohmert said that is significant.

 

“If it’s true what we’re told that Weiner had emails that were for Huma Abedin, if any of those are classified, then Huma broke the law by allowing her husband – even though they’re married – to have access to those emails,” Gohmert explained.

 

Listen to the WND/Radio America interview with Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas:

He said that arrangement also made both Weiner and Abedin ripe for blackmail.

 

“One of the reasons it’s so important for our high officials to be above reproach is the fact that, because Weiner was doing all this sexting, that kind of thing could have made him vulnerable to blackmail,” Gohmert said.

 

He said the impending Weiner-Abedin divorce could have put Abedin at the same risk.

 

“If he has emails that Huma should not have let him see, then she could be a target for blackmail,” Gohmert said. “If Hillary were elected, then Huma would be the closest confidante to the president of the United States but very vulnerable to blackmail.”

 

Gohmert is also struck by the Clinton team demanding the FBI reveal everything it has since this revelation comes so close to Election Day.

 

“It takes an awful lot of gall to say, in effect, ‘I thought I destroyed all of those emails. I demand to know what emails you have found because I thought I destroyed them all.’ Basically, it’s a bit of an admission of obstruction of justice,” Gohmert said.

 

The congressman is disappointed the Clinton investigation did not broaden into a probe of Clinton Foundation activities and how they influenced Clinton’s decisions at the State Department.

 

“For heaven’s sake, when you’re allowing the sale of our uranium and it ends up going to Russia and our enemies, that’s pretty amazing,” Gohmert said. “None of that seemed to pique the interest. Some of us sure think it sounded like there may have been crimes involved. [It] certainly merited having a grand jury impaneled and at least [having] them look into these things.”

 

Sign the precedent-setting petition supporting Trump’s call for an independent prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton!

 

According to reports, the FBI did aggressively push for permission to investigate the Clinton Foundation, but it was forbidden from proceeding by the Justice Department. Gohmert said that proves nothing will happen to Hillary Clinton while Loretta Lynch runs the Justice Department.

 

“As long as she’s there, Hillary Clinton will never be prosecuted,” Gohmert said. “The only chance there is that Hillary Clinton may eventually have to answer for some of the things she’s done is if Donald Trump is elected.”

 

He continued, “We have got to clean out the cesspool. It stinks to high heaven.”

 

While the Clinton campaign demands to see what emails the FBI has and simultaneously insists they are nothing of consequence, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is taking the Comey criticism to a new level.

 

In a letter, Reid is accusing Comey of violating the Hatch Act by sending his letter so close to the election. What’s more, Reid accused Comey of sitting on “explosive” evidence of Trump’s ties to the Russian government.

 

“In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisers, and the Russian government – a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity. The public has a right to know this information,” wrote Reid.

 

Gohmert minced few words about Reid. First, the congressman contends Comey may have violated the Hatch Act if he didn’t send the letter updating member of Congress on the probe.

 

“I think it would be a potential violation of the Hatch Act to use his position to prevent Americans from knowing the substantial change, the new evidence that has been found,” he said.

 

As for Reid himself, Gohmert said the Nevada Democrat’s reputation is already worthless.

 

“For lying Harry Reid, the guy that said (2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt) Romney didn’t pay taxes for 10 years, it turned out Reid had no basis. He just totally lied. He still says he is so proud he went and lied about Romney because it helped [President Obama] win the election,” Gohmert said.

 

“That tells us that Harry Reid is a guy who is so unscrupulous, so immoral that I don’t really much care what allegations he makes.”

 

While he does encourage a quick report on these new findings, Gohmert is pleading with the FBI to do a thorough job examining the new emails and not feel that it has to make a conclusion to meet a political deadline.

 

“The FBI needs to get their reputation back, and the only way to do that is to handle this more professionally,” he said.
