Feds Raid Epstein’s “Orgy Island”, Epstein Found in Cell With Bedsheet Wrapped Around His Neck…Suicide or Homicide?

arckancid-li-600

I can’t tell you the number of people in my circle who predicted Epstein would never see the inside of a courtroom, would never, ever stand trial for this. That he would be dead before that ever happened, that there were too many people who are on the verge of being destroyed if Epstein’s facts ever became public. – Rush Limbaugh, 8/12/19

FoxNews.com reports that

The FBI says agents are on the grounds of the U.S. Virgin Islands home of accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

The bureau confirmed to Fox News that agents were at his Little Saint James Island home in St. Thomas, but did not provide details.

The notorious island took on a string of nicknames over the years, including “Pedophile Island” and “Orgy Island.”

The 66-year-old Epstein was known to frequent the lush property in the U.S. Virgin Islands. What’s more, an employee who reportedly worked there has claimed the wealthy financier kept a mysterious safe inside the main residence.

The employee, speaking to Bloomberg, suggested that a steel safe in his office there may have stored more than just cash.

On Saturday Epstein was found unconscious in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, and he was later pronounced dead, having apparently committed suicide, said the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The death is said to have occurred after his cellmate was transferred for reasons that were not immediately clear.

He was reportedly found hanging in his jail cell with a bedsheet wrapped around his neck and secured to the top of a bunk bed, the New York Post reported.

Epstein was being held in connection with charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy.

Epstein was being held on the charges after he was denied bail. Prosecutors said he sexually abused dozens of young girls in his New York and Florida residences between 2002 and 2005, to which Epstein pleaded not guilty.

He faced up to 45 years in prison.

Epstein started transforming Little St. James Island after he bought it more than two decades ago — clearing the native vegetation, ringing the property with towering palm trees and planting two massive U.S. flags on either end.

He also built a stone mansion with cream-colored walls and a bright turquoise roof surrounded by several other structures, including the maids’ quarters and a massive, square-shaped white building on one end of the island. Workers there, the Associated Press reports, told each other it was a music room fitted with a grand piano and acoustic walls, whose gold dome flew off during the deadly 2017 hurricane season.

The employee who spoke to Bloomberg said when Epstein visited the property, he would walk around shirtless in shorts and flip-flops, and had a rule that he should never catch sight of the staffers who maintained the place.

Sometimes, the employee added, women would sunbathe topless or in the nude around a pool near the island’s main residence.

Many people who worked for Epstein on the island told AP last month that they had signed long nondisclosure agreements. One former employee who declined to be identified said Epstein once had five boats, including a large ferry in which he transported up to 200 workers from St. Thomas to his island every day for construction work.

The man said he saw a handful of young women when he was on Epstein’s property but he believed they were older than 18.

“When he was there, it was keep to yourself and do your thing,” the man recalled, adding that Epstein paid well and would give away older machinery and surplus including lumber to his employees.

Epstein later bought neighboring Great St. James Island, which once was popular with locals and tourists for its main attraction, Christmas Cove, a place where you could hang out and order pizza and have it delivered via boat.

Federal authorities considered the smaller of the two islands Epstein’s primary residence in the United States, a place where at least one alleged victim said in a court affidavit that she participated in an orgy, as well as had sex with Epstein and other people.

She said she saw former U.S. President Bill Clinton on the island, but that she never saw him having sex with anyone. A Clinton spokesman has issued a statement saying he never visited there.

Right.

Actually,

Flight logs show that from 2001 to 2003, Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s private plane, dubbed “The Lolita Express” by the press, 26 times. After Epstein’s arrest in July 2006, federal tax records show Epstein donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation that year.

Rush Limbaugh expressed some doubts about Epstein’s suicide during yesterday’s radio program…

I have read and I have talked to people who’ve been in these cells. They’re eight to nine feet tall. That’s how high the ceiling is. There’s nothing protruding from the ceiling on which to hang yourself. There’s nothing. The sheets on the bed are practically made of paper. They are not made to bear the weight necessary to break somebody’s neck, which is what happens to you by hanging. It’s not that you suffocate out there. It breaks your neck. Just snaps it. That’s what happens.

Now, if Epstein was gonna commit suicide, he had to have assistance. And just coincidentally, there weren’t any cameras in there. Aw, damn it. Amazing how that happens. But, folks, there were cameras on the doors. There are cameras in the hallways. There are cameras on the doors. There ought to be video of anybody who went in and out of there in the immediate period before and after Epstein supposedly committed suicide.

They also are delaying the release of the autopsy report pending more information.

…We’ve gotten to the point in American society where nobody trusts anything that the government says, except the left.

And everybody doubts this. I mean, Rudy Giuliani’s original tweet was filled with disbelief and doubt and “come on,” and now Rudy is back, “Oh, wait a minute, now. Let’s wait for more information to come through.” The attorney general, Bill Barr, is saying, “Hey, if you are breathing easy, if you were an Epstein coconspirator or anybody involved and you think you can breathe easy now that Epstein’s dead, you better think again.”

So a message has been sent, if somebody murdered Epstein, a message has been sent to them that they are not off the hook here.

So, if it was a murder, who carried it out…and how?

Ever since Epstein was found in his cell, the rumor mill has been going 24/7 on social media, with most of the accusations aimed at Bill and Hillary Clinton, along with some pretty funny memes on Facebook.

During the Presidential Campaign of 2016, the CBS local affiliate in Las Vegas posted a list of 46 people connected with the Clintons who had “died mysteriously” among them are names which you will probably be familiar with like Seth Rich, Vince Foster, Ron Brown, and James MacDougal, who died of a heart attack while he was serving time for the Whitewater Scam.

It is a pretty interesting list, so check it out when you get a chance to.

As others have said more eloquently than I can, the timing and the circumstances of Jeffrey Epstein’s “suicide” raise a lot of questions.

And now, with the FBI raid of Epstein’s Orgy Island, will new documented evidence be found naming more of the Democratic Elite as having been “guests” of Jeffrey Epstein and having participated in the “activities” which he held at his little getaway?

If it turns out that Epstein had help leaving this world and beginning his journey to a much warmer place, and if those behind the deed were the ones whom everyone thinks arranged Epstein’s travel plans, will AG Barr combine the “Arkancide” of Jeffrey Epstein and “Spygate” into one big decimating legal attack on the Democratic Party Hierarchy?

Things could get very hot very soon for all of those involved.

Or course, not as hot as Epstein is right now…

But, I digress…

FBI Used Steele Dossier for Months After 2016 Election for FISA Warrants, Despite Having Documented Steele’s Anti-Trump Bias

untitled-188

FoxNews.com reports that

The FBI formally documented the anti-Trump bias of British ex-spy Christopher Steele months shortly after the November 2016 presidential election — yet despite the red flags, continued to use his unverified dossier in multiple Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application renewals, records obtained by Fox News show.

The partially redacted documents, first obtained by Judicial Watch, also revealed that top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr maintained contact with Steele for at least six months after Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in November 2016.

The records further confirm that Ohr knew of Steele’s anti-Trump bias before the 2016 election.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday evening. “I know personally there’s a lot more out there.”

The summaries of FBI interviews with Ohr, known as 302s, showed that Ohr knew by September 2016 — a month before the initial FISA application to surveil the Trump campaign — that Steele was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being the U.S. President.”

A source close to the matter told Fox News “this had the effect of putting a senior DOJ official on notice that a witness/source had an extreme bias.”

Nevertheless, the FISA warrant application went through in October 2016 with multiple renewals.  While the FISA records are heavily redacted, it does not appear that the FBI’s documentation about Steele’s bias was ever shared with the FISA court.

Proceedings before FISA courts are ex parte, meaning defendants are not aware of them or able to attend in any capacity. The FBI has a legal and procedural obligation to reveal exculpatory evidence to the FISA court on its own.

However, on four occasions, the FBI told the FISA court that it “did not believe” Steele was the direct source for a Yahoo News article written by Michael Isikoff implicating former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page in alleged collusion with Russian officials.

While FBI told the FISA court that the Yahoo article represented independent evidence to support Steele’s claims, the 302s show that by November 2016 — before several FISA warrant renewals — the FBI had made the connection between Steele and the Yahoo News article.

According to documents, Ohr apparently met with Steele in Washington, D.C. in late September, “possibly close to the time when the Yahoo news article was published on September 23, 2016.”

The materials indicate that Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, and Steele “could have met with Yahoo or Michael Isikoff jointly, but Ohr does not know if they did.”

Fusion GPS is the opposition research firm behind the dossier, and was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee (DNC).

It is not clear from the interviews whether Ohr made the connection between Steele and the Yahoo article, or the interviewing agent did.

London court records have shown that contrary to the FBI’s assessments, Steele briefed Yahoo News and other reporters in the fall of 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS.

The 22 pages of reports on interviews with Ohr also revealed his extensive contacts with Steele. The two communicated on the encrypted messaging app “WhatsApp,” according to the records.

The FBI documents showed Ohr’s contacts with Steele extended through May 2017, when Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed. Ohr then became a kind of backchannel linking Steele to the FBI after his termination.

House Oversight Committee ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told Fox News’ “Hannity” late Thursday: “Why do you terminate your direct relationship with Christopher Steele and then encourage a top Justice Department official to keep meeting with him, and then coming and briefing you about each of those meetings and conversations?”

“Seems to me you’re trying to hide something when you do that,” Jordan continued, adding that the 302s indicated that some at the bureau were seeking to take out Trump.

What could they be hiding, hmmm?

Kimberley A. Strassel, in an article published on Thursday, February 8, 2018 in The Wall Street Journal, states that the FBI swallowed whole the story pushed by a paid political operative of a subcontractor for Hillary Clinton’s campaign for President.

To be sure, the FBI should have known better. Even if Mr. Steele had previously been helpful, the bureau had every reason to be wary in 2016. This wasn’t like prior collaborations. He was coming to the FBI as a paid political operative, hired by Fusion, as a subcontractor for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Opposition researchers are not retained to present considered judgment. They are retained to slime an opponent and benefit a client.

The FBI also had reason to view his research with skepticism—on grounds of its tabloid-like allegations, and also on the near-fantastical claim of skill that underlay it. To wit, that a man who had been out of official spy rings for seven years was nonetheless able, in a matter of weeks and with just a few calls from London, where he lives, to unravel an international conspiracy that had eluded the CIA, FBI, MI6 and every other Western intelligence agency, all of which have access to the globe’s most sophisticated surveillance tools.

But rather than proceed with caution, the FBI swallowed the whole package. According to Sen. Chuck Grassley’s declassified criminal referral, former Director James Comey testified that the bureau couldn’t meaningfully corroborate the dossier, but used it in Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court proceedings anyway because Mr. Steele had previously provided “reliable” information.

Of course, Comey denies knowing who funded the Steele Dossier.

If you believe that the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not know what his top agents were involved in nor have any knowledge of the Secretary of State’s activities and those of her confidantes’, I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis, Tennessee to sell you.

President Ronald Reagan used to say that the nine words that you never want to hear were

I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

The Deep State Operatives within the FBI and the DOJ conspired to overturn the results of the 2016 Presidential Election via means of a seditious plot which like a Machiavellian spider’s web, reached into the Halls of Power in Washington, D.C.

Being political appointees holding political opinions, while carrying political obligations to a certain political party, never bodes well in a position of legal authority.

Add into that mix an extra-marital affair between these bureaucrats and, to paraphrase, “the affairs of mice and men (and agents) will indeed go awry”.

Since the kinky days of J. Edgar Hoover, the hierarchy of the FBI have run clandestine investigations of public figures, both political and cultural leaders.

J. Edgar did it to hold onto his office and to have political leverage against his enemies, as he had skeletons in his own closet…and dresses, too.

But, I digress.

In this case however, the hierarchy of the FBI did it to circumvent the will of the American People and to install Hillary Clinton as the 45th President, thus protecting the status quo in the Halls of Power in Washington, DC.

When that didn’t happen, they determined to bring President Trump down, by any means necessary, including creating a fake story of Russian Collusion.

Thanks to two agents who decided to do the Extramarital Mattress Mambo and text each other thousands of times, written evidence was provided to support the FISA Memo.

And now, with more and more documentation on the verge of being released, several of these professional bureaucrats may start singing like canaries in a coal mine before the spider’s web of corruption which they helped to spin collapses down around them.

My late Former Father-in-law was a retired Police Lieutenant, who had worked with the FBI on several high-profile cases.

To say that he wasn’t a fan would be an understatement.

According to him, the letters FBI stood for “F—ing Bunch of Idiots”.

In the case of the DOJ’s and FBI’s “Secret Society” of Deep State Covert Operatives, darned if he wasn’t right.

Ilhan Omar, with CAIR’s Support, Wants to Know How U.S. Terrorist Watchlist is Shared with Foreign Countries

th (108)

We must be certain that we all realize that our enemy is not an enemy that is located in one single place. There are terrorist cells all around the globe. – Sen.Marsha Blackburn (R, TN)

Per CNSNews.com,

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and ten other House Democrats have written to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, requesting information about how information from the FBI-administered terrorist watchlist is shared with foreign governments – including governments with poor human rights records.

In doing so, she pointed to the support of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a sometimes controversial group that has mounted legal challenges against the watchlist, formally known as the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).

In a release Friday about the letter to Pompeo, Omar quoted CAIR national Executive Director Nihad Awad, who said the TSDB was “dangerous enough” in itself, but even more so when shared with “tyrannical regimes.”

Other signatories of Omar’s letter include Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). The two freshmen are the first Muslim women to be elected to the U.S. Congress.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), one of the more than two dozen Democrats running for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination, also signed.

“In our oversight role as Members of Congress, we are entitled to information as to which countries receive this sensitive and classified information about American citizens, many of whom have never been charged, arrested, or convicted of a crime,” the lawmakers wrote.

They believe that the TSDB has been shared with more than 60 foreign countries, well beyond the 38 Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries. They said other countries with information-sharing arrangements were believed to include Albania, Slovenia, India, Brazil, Mexico, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Tunisia, and Israel, they wrote. (Slovenia is in fact a VWP country.)

Omar and her colleagues voiced particular concern “that the federal government is sharing watchlist information with countries with dubious human rights records, including Saudi Arabia and China.”

“It is unacceptable for U.S. resources to contribute to the brutal repression of political dissidents abroad,” they charged.

The 11 House Democrats asked Pompeo to provide, within 90 days, specific information about the TSDB, including which countries get the data; what standards exist to determine whether the data is shared with foreign governments; whether foreign counties’ human rights records are taken into account when making decisions on sharing; and how and whether a data-sharing agreement can be rescinded once reached.

In her release, Omar quoted CAIR’s Awad as saying, “It is dangerous enough that the federal government keeps a secret watchlist of more than one million people, almost all of whom are Muslim, and treats these Muslims like second class citizens.”

“The danger, however, increases exponentially when this watchlist is shared with tyrannical regimes all across the world,” Awad continued. “Congress and the public ought to know which foreign governments receive the watchlist and what has been done to people targeted by a watchlisting system that now spans the globe. CAIR applauds this oversight.”

CAIR, which calls itself the nation’s biggest Muslim civil rights and advocacy group, is a long-standing critic of the TSDB.

“For years, CAIR has represented innocent Muslims — people who have not been charged, arrested, or convicted of a violent offense — who have been targeted by the watchlisting system,” the organization says. “Some have lost jobs, been separated from their families, and all have been stigmatized by being treated as ‘terrorists’ by their own government.”

In 2016 CAIR launched a class-action lawsuit on behalf of a group of Muslim Americans who said that being placed on the watchlist resulted in invasive travel screening and harm to their reputations.

The vast majority of those listed are foreigners. Documents lodged in the case included information to the effect that of some 1,160,000 on the list in 2017, 4,460 were U.S. nationals or lawful permanent residents.

Still, the total number had increased from fewer than 400,000 in 2008.

Last April a federal judge in Alexandria, Va. said he would rule soon on the constitutionality of the watchlist.

Set up under a 2003 directive by President George W. Bush in response to 9/11, the TSDB is described as “a single database that contains sensitive national security and law enforcement information concerning the identities of those who are known or reasonably suspected of being involved in terrorist activities.”

The directive laid the groundwork for U.S. authorities to share information with foreign counterparts.

Because Lord knows, our Sovereign Nation and others should not be protected by Radical Islamic Terrorists.

Pardon my “French” but, what the H@ll?

As is quite evident from her words and actions since being elected to Congress, not only is Representative Omar a Far Left Radical, she is also most definitely a Radical Islamist.

Per GatewayPundit.com,

Ilhan Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn.

Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.

The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.

In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

Democrat Ilhan Omar ran against the BDS – anti-Israel -movement.
But now that she won her election she is open about her support for BDS.

Per their website BDSMovement.net,

The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.

Of course, Representative Omar is also supported by and supportive of CAIR – The Council on American-Islamic Relations.

…From its inception, CAIR has sought to portray itself as a moderate, mainstream organization, and as early as 1996 its officials became frequent guests at State Department and White House events. In the aftermath of 9/11, when the Bush administration tried to reassure American Muslims that Islam was not the target of the war on terrorism, CAIR officials were prominent among the invitees. CAIR was the main Islamic group to gain U.S. media access in the post-9/11 period, providing the “Muslim view” of the terrorist attacks and of America’s response to them. As self-acclaimed Muslim spokesmen, CAIR officials typically refused to “simplify the situation” by blaming Osama bin Laden for the attacks on America. Moreover, while they eventually were induced by journalists to condemn Palestinian suicide terror in a pro forma manner, they hedged their disavowals by describing it as an understandable response to Israeli brutality.

The Muslim view of 9/11 and our response to that horrific atrocity perpetrated against our Sovereign Nation and over 3,000 of her citizens?

Unless CAIR’s view was and is apologetic, they can go jump in the mighty Mississippi River.

In some ways, it does not seem like it has been almost 18 years since the worst Terrorist Attack ever perpetrated on American soil.

In other ways, it seems like an eternity.

That horrible day was so surreal. It seemed to me like I was stuck in a nightmare.

Certainly this couldn’t be happening to us? We’re the greatest nation in the world. Who in their right mind, would dare attack the United States of America? Who would be brazen enough to attack us, using instruments of our own design? Who would actually dare flying planes into the Twin Towers, a living symbol of American Prosperity?

For that matter,. who would fly a plane into the Pentagon? The Seat of Power behind our nation’s awesome Military, the finest collection of Fighting Men and Women on Earth?

It was not a nightmare. It was a reality.

I remember seeing that first plane crash into the World Trade Center.

I remember the look of incredulity and panic on the faces of Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and E.D. Hill, as they watched from the set of Fox and Friends that fateful morning.

I remember the second plane on its approach, and the horrifying realization that this was no accident… that America was under attack. An attack, which turned out to have been planned and executed by Osama bin Laden, and a group of Saudi Arabians, members of the Muslim Terrorist Group, known as al-Qaeda.

I remember the images of Americans jumping out of windows to their certain death, rather than be consumed by the fires, raging around them.

I remember the sickening thud as they hit the pavement.

I remember the images of the brave NYC Policemen and Firemen as they rushed into the World Trade Center…never to return.

I remember watching the First Tower collapse…then, the second one.

I remember a heroic Mayor Rudy Giuliani, out in the middle of the devastation, doing whatever he could to get New Yorkers to safety.

I remember President George W. Bush coming on television, with a look of steely determination, as he announced that we would be avenged.

I remember him standing on that heap of rubble that used to be a part of the World Trade Center, side by side with that fireman, telling the assembled crowd, through his bullhorn, that “the world will hear from us”.

And, it did.

Here is the tragedy of 9/11/01, broken down by the numbers. Courtesy of nymag.com:

The initial numbers are indelible: 8:46 a.m. and 9:02 a.m. Time the burning towers stood: 56 minutes and 102 minutes. Time they took to fall: 12 seconds. From there, they ripple out.

  • Total number killed in attacks (official figure as of 9/5/02):2,819
  • Number of firefighters and paramedics killed: 343
  • Number of NYPD officers: 23
  • Number of Port Authority police officers: 37
  • Number of WTC companies that lost people: 60
  • Number of employees who died in Tower One: 1,402
  • Number of employees who died in Tower Two: 614
  • Number of employees lost at Cantor Fitzgerald: 658
  • Number of U.S. troops killed in Operation Enduring Freedom: 22
  • Number of nations whose citizens were killed in attacks:115
  • Ratio of men to women who died: 3:1
  • Age of the greatest number who died: between 35 and 39
  • Bodies found “intact”: 289
  • Body parts found: 19,858
  • Number of families who got no remains: 1,717
  • Estimated units of blood donated to the New York Blood Center: 36,000
  • Total units of donated blood actually used: 258
  • Number of people who lost a spouse or partner in the attacks: 1,609
  • Estimated number of children who lost a parent: 3,051

For Rep. Omar and her “fellow travelers” in the Far Left Democratic Party-controlled House of Representatives to want “control” over the Terrorist Watchlist, is outrageous.

Why should we give a bunch of idiots who sympathize with murderous Radical Muslims the ability to control what we know about their actions and their plans which they are forming against us?

Rep. Omar…sit down, shut up, and go sit in the halls of Congress and try to do something to benefit America…instead of something to destroy us.

Halper Spied on Page for “Deep State” Even After Mueller was Appointed

Stefan-Halper-1

“[Stephen] Halper, who assisted the FBI in the Russia investigation, appears to also have significant ties to the Russian government, as well as sources connected directly to President Vladimir Putin.” Now, this is new.  Halper is part of the MI6 bunch in the U.K. that partnered with the FBI and agents from Harvard and Yale.  This is the Oxford-Cambridge, Harvard-Yale connection with the intelligence apparatus of both countries.  What it all means here so that Halper just another link from the Clinton campaign to the Russians in creating all of this phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock ‘n’ roll stuff on Trump, including the dossier. – Rush Limbaugh 8/28/18

FoxNews.com reports that

Following President Trump’s decision to allow the declassification of key Russia records at Attorney General Bill Barr’s discretion, former Trump campaign aide Carter Page told Fox News his contact with alleged FBI informant Stefan Halper at a pivotal period in the Russia probe was more extensive than previously reported.

Separately, Fox News has learned congressional investigators have been renewing their focus on a text message sent nine days before the government’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application to monitor Page, in which then-FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page questioned “who’s playing games,” “scared” and “covering.”

Carter Page said he first met Halper in July 2016 after receiving an invitation to an overseas seminar. He added that his contact with Halper continued for more than a year through September 2017, after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian actors.

Page said that “during that period, amidst frequent terror threats,” Halper was one of the few people he felt comfortable confiding in. “He [Halper] was one of the few people who would talk to me. He seemed understanding of my predicament and the incessant personal security risks that stemmed from the (Democratic National Committee) consultants’ false reports.”

Page confirmed to Fox News that he visited Halper’s farm in Northern Virginia several times beginning in August 2016 — starting three weeks after Strzok officially opened the FBI counterintelligence probe into possible Russian election interference in late July. On October 21, 2016, the FBI and DOJ obtained a surveillance warrant to monitor Page.

Fox News asked Page if he made any statements to Halper, during this period, that would show he was not acting on behalf of Russia, or would refuse to act on behalf of the Russian government.

“I’m sure Russia came up,” Page responded. “We talked international relations. It must have. … I can’t imagine anything I said could conceivably lead to a FISA.”

Page told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday evening that he wants to see the country to continue to “grow” once people who “have been obstructing” the Trump administration’s agenda are brought to justice.

Republican critics have suggested the earliest records to be declassified and publicly released could reveal so-called exculpatory evidence regarding Page and Trump aide George Papadopolous. Because the FISA court is ex parte, meaning it involves only the government providing evidence without any defense team present, the government has a unique constitutional and procedural responsibility to provide not only evidence supporting its surveillance application, but also exculpatory evidence that could undercut the application.

Some GOP lawmakers have alleged that exculpatory evidence was available but likely withheld from the court.

“There was western intelligence sent to spy on Papadopoulos and there’s a recording and transcript of the conversation,” Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz told Fox News. “And there, Papadopoulos denies any illegal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. So, they had evidence presumably that was against Papadopoulos and for him. What they will never be able to defend is that they never presented that evidence to the FISA court.”

To call Stefan Halper a “Washington Insider” and a  member of “The Deep State” is an understatement.

This guy’s curriculum vitae reads like a Who’s Who of the American Political Scene from the Reagan Years until now.

According to The Institute for World Politics, where he is a Research Professor…

From 2001 to the present:, he has been employed at Cambridge University as a Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies where he also serves as Director of American Studies.

His work in the field of Politics is a lot more interesting that his accomplishments in Academia

Halper served in the White House (1971-1977) during the Nixon and Ford Administrations.

1971-1973 White House Domestic Council;
1973-74 White House Office of Management and Budge. Assist. Director, Management and Evaluation Division
1974- January 20, 1977 White House Office of the Chief of Staff. Assistant to the Chief of Staff . (responsibilities included summary and analysis of foreign developments and security issues)
1977-79 Legislative Assistant to Senator William Roth (R-Del.) and Special Counsel to the Joint Economic Committee.
1979-80  National Director, Policy Development. George H.W. Bush. Presidential campaign
1980  National Director, Policy Coordination, Reagan-Bush 1980 (presidential campaign)
1981-1984 Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Politico-Military Affairs.
(Portfolio included China-US relations, Taiwan, non-proliferation, technology transfer, unconventional warfare.)
1984-1990 Chairman and majority shareholder:

The Palmer National Bank, Washington, D.C.
The National Bank of Northern Virginia, Leesburg, Va.
The George Washington National Bank, Alexandria, Va.
1990-2000 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Halper, Roosevelt and Brown. 

1984-2001 Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice.

With a list of accomplishments like those above, Halper made the perfect “mole” to be embedded in the Trump Presidential Campaign.

This “contractor” evidently pulled a lot of weight in the previous Administration.

So, what does all of this mean?

It means that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the Department of Justice and President Obama “read in”, embedded a spy in the opposition party’s Presidential Campaign in order to be a pipeline of information and to enable Obama’s DOJ and FBI to sabotage their operations, thus insuring the victory of his hand-picked successor and retaining the seat of power for his political party.

And, when that plan failed, the remaining Deep State Operatives kept Stefan Halper spying on Carter Page, even after Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel to investigate “Russian Collusion”.

Of course, according to the raving Liberals at the New York Times, that was done to “protect” Trump. And, if you buy that, I have stock in the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Economics to sell you.

Obama and his “Deep State” Operatives made Nixon look like an amateur.

In just 48 hours of time, President Donald J. Trump has changed the focus of the Main Stream Media and the American people from the Democrats’ cries for his Impeachment to cries of terror from the Dems as he instructs Attorney General William Barr to declassify all of the intelligence documents pertaining to the covert operation by the DOJ, FBI, and CIA under President Barack Hussein Obama known as “Spygate”.

And to top off the declassification of those documents, the President ordered the heads of those intelligence agencies to fully cooperate with the Attorney General/.

Call me a crazy ol’ cracker, but I believe the garbage that Pelosi and Schumer pulled after Trump told them off in the planned Infrastructure meeting by telling that press that President Trump was mentally deranged and “in need of prayer” was the final straw which convinced him to “release the Kraken”.

The holier-than-thou feigned innocence of the deceitful Democrats had finally become too much for a straight shooter like Trump.

He decided that it was time to reveal the players in the largest tale of political corruption and seditious treason in the history of the United States of America.

This whole Democrat-supported “Deep State Covert Operation” against Trump, resembles a spider’s web in its malevolent intricacy with its “alarm thread” leading directly back to the Obama and Hillary.

The incestuous nature of this covert operation resembles something out of a Tom Clancy Novel, only twice as large a conspiracy and three times as unbelievably dangerous.

This has been a well-planned “silent coup” designed to keep the Democratic Party in control of the Presidency and to further their goal of turning the United States of America into a Democratic Socialist Country, where the Politboro (Central Government) would prosper and we average Americans would spend our lives working for the glory of the State.

The election of a “Citizen Statesman” in the form of Donald J. Trump to the office of the Presidency ruined their plans.

That is why the Democrats have been attempting to overturn the results of a fair election.

Merriam-Webster.com defines “sedition” as

: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

That being said, the intentional interference in the passage of Presidential Authority from one political party to another as the result of a fairly held election as prescribed by our Constitution can not be considered to be anything less. According to Federal Law, the punishment for Seditious Conspiracy is detailed as follows..

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

The Trump Administration and its specified duties regarding the operation of the Government of the United States of America and the oversight of the safety and welfare of its citizens have been under attack by both members of a Former Presidential Administration and by members of our own Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Central Intelligence Agency.

Not to mention operatives from other countries who were used in this plot by our intelligence agencies.

It’s finally time to drain the Swamp, gentle readers.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

So, as the Fifth Dimension used to sing,

“Let the sunshine in!”

I’ll grab the popcorn.

DOJ Made Deal With Clintons’ Lawyers Blocking the FBI From Reading Hillary’s Private Server E-Mails About Clinton Foundation

No matter what the stated humanitarian goals of the Clinton Foundation, every fiber and sinew of the organization is wrapped in self-dealing, self-enrichment, fraud, and corruption. – Lawrence Kudlow

FoxNews.com reports that

The Justice Department “negotiated” an agreement with Hillary Clinton’s legal team that ensured the FBI did not have access to emails on her private servers relating to the Clinton Foundation, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok testified during a closed-door appearance before the House Judiciary Committee last summer, according to a newly released transcript.

Republicans late last year renewed their efforts to probe the Clinton Foundation, after tax documents showed a plunge in its incoming donations after Clinton’s 2016 presidential election. The numbers fueled longstanding allegations of possible “pay-to-play” transactions at the organization, amid a Justice Department probe covering foundation issues.

Under questioning from Judiciary Committee General Counsel Zachary Somers, Strzok acknowledged that Clinton’s private personal email servers contained a mixture of emails related to the Clinton Foundation, her work as secretary of state and other matters.

“Were you given access to [Clinton Foundation-related] emails as part of the investigation?” Somers asked

“We were not. We did not have access,” Strzok responded. “My recollection is that the access to those emails were based on consent that was negotiated between the Department of Justice attorneys and counsel for Clinton.”

Although the FBI eventually took possession of the servers, Strzok continued, the possession was “based upon the negotiation of Department of Justice attorneys for consent.”

“A significant filter team” was employed at the FBI, Strzok said, to “work through the various terms of the various consent agreements.” Limitations imposed on agents’ searches included date ranges, and names of domains and people, Strzok said, among other categories.

The agreement was reached, Strzok said, because “according to the attorneys, we lacked probable cause to get a search warrant for those servers and projected that either it would take a very long time and/or it would be impossible to get to the point where we could obtain probable cause to get a warrant.”

Strzok did not elaborate on whether prosecutors made any effort to secure a search warrant, which could have delineated precisely what agents could and could not search.

But Strzok later said that agents had access to the “entire universe” of information on the servers when using search terms to probe their contents. He also told Somers that “we had it voluntarily,” although it was unclear if he meant all emails on the servers — including ones related to the Clinton Foundation.

Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who chaired the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee until 2017 and is now a Fox News contributor, said the arrangement signaled that agents wanted willful blindness.

“What’s bizarre about this, is in any other situation, there’s no possible way they would allow the potential perpetrator to self-select what the FBI gets to see,” Chaffetz said, noting that the FBI was aware that the servers contained classified information in unclassified settings. “The FBI should be the one to sort through those emails — not the Clinton attorneys.”

The DOJ’s goal, Chaffetz said, was to “make sure they hear no evil, see no evil — they had no interest in pursuing the truth.”

Chaffetz added that the DOJ’s behavior, including its award of immunity to top Clinton aides early on in the investigation, signaled a clear double standard: “They didn’t go make a deal with anyone in Trump’s orbit. They seized it. They used guns and agents — and just went in there and took it.”

“The Clinton Foundation isn’t supposed to be communicating with the State Department anyway,” Chaffetz continued. “The foundation — with her name on it — is not supposed to be communicating with the senior officials at the State Department.”

The Clinton Foundation did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Republican-led concerns that the DOJ, under the Obama administration, was too cozy with the Clinton team during the 2016 presidential campaign have grown louder in recent days. Earlier this week, Fox News exclusively reviewed an internal chart prepared by federal investigators working on the so-called “Midyear Exam” probe into Clinton’s emails. The chart contained the words “NOTE: DOJ not willing to charge this” next to a key statute on the mishandling of classified information.

The notation appeared to contradict former FBI Director James Comey’s repeated claims that his team made its decision that Clinton should not face criminal charges independently.

But Strzok, in his closed-door interview, denied that the DOJ exercised undue influence over the FBI, and insisted that lawyers at the DOJ were involved in an advisory capacity working with agents.

Fox News also confirmed the chart served as a critical tip that provided the basis for Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe’s explosive questioning of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page last year, in which Page agreed with Ratcliffe’s characterization that the DOJ had told the FBI that “you’re not going to charge gross negligence.”

A transcript of Page’s remarks was published Tuesday as part of a major document release by the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins.

Strzok, who was fired from the bureau after months of scrutiny regarding anti-Trump text messages between him and Page, confirmed he was involved in an extramarital affair when asked about it during his interview before the committee on June 27, 2018. But Strzok was also asked by Art Baker, the GOP investigative counsel for the committee, whether that affair could have made him “vulnerable to potential recruitment” by “hostile intelligence service[s].”

“Yeah, I don’t think I would characterize it that way,” Strzok said. “I think it is not so much any particular action as it is the way that action might be used to coerce or otherwise get somebody to do something. I can tell you that in no way would that extramarital affair have any power in coercing me to do anything other than obeying the law and doing honest, competent investigation.”

Let me get this straight. The Department of Justice allowed the FBI to be censored as to what they could see and therefore, investigate, concerning the Pay-for-Play Scam known as the Clinton Foundation?

Holy cow. (No, that is not a reference to Hillary Clinton.)

Can you say “corruption”, gentle readers? I knew that you could.

Just how corrupt WAS the pipeline between the Clinton Foundation and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? Per discoverthenetworks.org,

By the time Clinton left office in February 2013, the charity had received millions of dollars in new or increased payments from at least seven foreign governments. Five of the governments came on board during her tenure as secretary of state while two doubled or tripled their support in that time, according to data provided by CHAI spokeswoman Daley…CHAI should have told the State Department before accepting donations totaling $340,000 from Switzerland’s Agency for Development and Cooperation in 2011 and 2012. However, it did not believe U.S. authorities needed to review the other six governments, including Britain and Australia, she said, citing various reasons.” [Reuters, 3/19/15]

However, it was not just governments who sent money to the Clintons through their Foundation. Again, according to discoverthenetworks.org…

* “The Clinton Foundation swore off donations from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. That didn’t stop the foundation from raising millions of dollars from foreigners with connections to their home governments, a review of foundation disclosures shows. Some donors have direct ties to foreign governments. One is a member of the Saudi royal family. Another is a Ukrainian oligarch and former parliamentarian. Others are individuals with close connections to foreign governments that stem from their business activities. Their professed policy interests range from human rights to U.S.-Cuba relations.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

* During Secretary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, “More than a dozen foreign individuals and their foundations and companies were large donors to the Clinton Foundation… collectively giving between $34 million and $68 million…. Some donors also provided funding directly to charitable projects sponsored by the foundation, valued by the organization at $60 million.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and most recently with E-mailgate, the Clinton Foundation and her role in the FISA Dossier, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cared about herself and her planned ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

Clinton’s trail of corruption leads all the way back to when she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee for dishonesty.

However, to use public servers to transmit Top Secret Information which endangered American Operatives and to have the hutzpah to practice “Pay-For-Play” on a Global Scale, while holding the Office of Secretary of State of the United States of America, Clinton has showed herself to be downright treasonous.

It is time to turn up the heat and to fight fire with fire.

Attorney General Barr, it is way past time for a THOROUGH investigation of the nefarious actions of Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

What’s “good” for the winner of the 2016 Presidential Election…is much better for the loser.

“What difference at this point does it make?”

Well…perhaps it would make all of the Far Left Liberals of the Democratic Party, including their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media,  who have been throwing a National Temper Tantrum protesting the results of a fair and honest Presidential Election to all hold their breath until they turn blue…and pass out.

Ahhh…blessed silence.

Like when a baby cries themselves to sleep.

Barr Assembles Team to Investigate FBI’s “Counterintelligence Investigation” of Trump Campaign

Obama Spying on Trump

Look out, Deep State!

Your chickens are coming home…to roost!

FoxNews.com reports that

Attorney General Bill Barr has assembled a “team” to investigate the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, an administration official briefed on the situation told Fox News on Tuesday.

Republicans have repeatedly called for a thorough investigation of the FBI’s intelligence practices and the origins of the since-discredited Russian collusion narrative following the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe — and they now appeared to have assurances that a comprehensive review was underway.

The 2016 FBI investigation was formally opened by anti-Trump former FBI agent Peter Strzok. Ex-FBI counsel Lisa Page, with whom Strzok was romantically involved, revealed during a closed-door congressional interview that the FBI “knew so little” about whether allegations against the Trump campaign were “true or not true,” at the time that they opened the probe, noting that they had just “a paucity of evidence because we are just starting down the path” of vetting the allegations.

Page later said that it was “entirely common” that the FBI would begin a counterintelligence investigation with just a “small amount of evidence.”

Former FBI Director James Comey would later testify that when agency initiated its counterintelligence probe into possible collusion between Trump campaign officials and the Russian government in July 2016, investigators “didn’t know whether we had anything” and that “in fact, when I was fired as director [in May 2017], I still didn’t know whether there was anything to it.”

Barr told lawmakers at a contentious hearing earlier Tuesday that he was reviewing the bureau’s “conduct” in particular during the summer of 2016. The attorney general’s explosive testimony marked his Capitol Hill appearance since he revealed the central findings of Mueller’s investigation, and he indicated the full report — with redactions — would be made public within the week.

Mueller’s investigation completed last month without securing the indictment of a single American for collusion with Russia or obstruction of justice, “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.”

“I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted during the summer of 2016,” Barr said at the hearing.

Barr was also questioned about the initial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants approved to surveil members of the Trump campaign, including former Trump aide Carter Page.

The FBI’s ultimately successful warrant application to surveil Page, which relied in part on information from British ex-spy Christopher Steele – whose anti-Trump views are now well-documented – flatly accused Page of conspiring with Russians. Page has never been charged with any wrongdoing, and he is now suing the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for defamation.

The FBI incorrectly assured the FISA court on numerous occasions that other sources independently corroborated Steele’s claims but did not clearly state that Steele worked for a firm hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Fox News exclusively obtained internal FBI text messages last month showing that just nine days before the FBI applied for the Page FISA warrant, bureau officials were battling with a senior Justice Department official who had “continued concerns” about the “possible bias” of a source pivotal to the application.

Fox News is also told that the Justice Department’s Inspector General (IG) is separately looking into whether Comey mishandled classified information by including a variety of sensitive matters in his private memos.

And Barr testified Tuesday that the IG was looking into the FBI’s FISA application process.

A DOJ court filing on Monday night revealed that Comey incorporated into his private documents, among other key details, the name and code name of a confidential human source.

Hallelujah!

The covert Deep State Operation to keep Donald J. Trump from becoming president and then to remove him after he was fairly and justly elected by the American people began under the auspices of the Administration of Former President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

Regarding the phony FISA Dossier, according to Heavy.com,

In an exclusive report, The Washington Post reported that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee allegedly “helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier” that lobbed salacious allegations about President Donald Trump, Russia, and even so-called “golden showers” into the public debate. The firm behind the dossier, Fusion GPS, had steadfastly refused to release details of its funding sources.

Citing anonymous people familiar with the situation, The Post exclusive reported that “Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research. After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to the people. Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC.”

This whole Democrat-supported “Lawfare” against Trump, resembles a spider’s web in its malevolent intricacy with its “alarm thread” leading directly back to the Obama and Hillary.

The incestuous nature of this covert operation resembles something out of a Tom Clancy Novel, only twice as large a conspiracy and three times as unbelievably dangerous.

This has been a well-planned “silent coup” designed to keep the Democratic Party in control of the Presidency and to further their goal of turning the United States of America into a Democratic Socialist Country, where the Politboro (Central Government) would prosper and us average Americans would spend our lives working for the glory of the State.

The election of a “Citizen Statesman” in the form of Donald J. Trump to the office of the Presidency ruined their plans.

That is why they are still attempting to overturn the results of a fair election.

Merriam-Webster.com defines “sedition” as

: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

That being said, the intentional interference in the passage of Presidential Authority from one political party to another as the result of a fairly held election as prescribed by our Constitution can not be considered to be anything less. According to Federal Law, the punishment for Seditious Conspiracy is detailed as follows..

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

The Trump Administration and its specified duties regarding the operation of the Government of the United States of America and the oversight of the safety and welfare of its citizens haven been under attack by both members of a Former Presidential Administration and by members of our own Department of Justice.

I believe that it is time that the laws against interference with our fairly elected government be enforced against those who would sabotage their own country for the sake of their own egos, to assuage their hurt and anger from a lost Presidential Election, and to preserve a legacy of failure which average Americans did not wish to continue.

I also believe that this long-awaited investigation must result in no less than indictments against all of those former and present “public servants” who have engaged in the Seditious Conspiracy to subjugate the will of the American people and to overthrow our nation’s government from within.

Our Sovereign Nation must remain a Constitutional Republic in order to preserve our liberty.

Was SPLC President Richard Cohen’s Resignation, Possible Virtue Signaling to Cover SPLC’s Relationship With the FBI and the Deep State?

cohen_1_wj1wrm

“In our polarized times, radicals use the SPLC’s hate-group designations to justify violence. Politicians and corporations use the designation to marginalize and punish good men and women. Not long ago the Family Research Council narrowly avoided mass murder when a man tried to attack its headquarters. He was inspired in part by the SPLC’s hate-group designation, and his plan was to shoot FRC employees and stuff Chick-fil-A sandwiches into their dead, bleeding mouths.” – David French, Senior Writer, National Review, July 13, 2017

The Daily Caller reports that

Southern Poverty Law Center president Richard Cohen resigned Friday, in the latest blow to the embattled left-wing nonprofit.

Cohen’s resignation came nine days after the SPLC fired co-founder Morris Dees on March 13, citing unspecified conduct issues.

Cohen announced his resignation in a staff-wide email Friday evening, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen’s email read, according to the Times.

Current and former SPLC employees have accused the organization of turning a blind eye to sexual harassment and racial discrimination within its own ranks. (RELATED: ‘Highly Profitable Scam’: Former SPLC Staffers Come Clean)

Cohen took responsibility for unspecified “problems” at the SPLC in a statement released to the Montgomery Advertiser.

Cohen asked the SPLC’s board “to immediately launch a search for an interim president in order to give the organization the best chance to heal,” according to the Advertiser.

SPLC employees were long aware of racial issues and sexual harassment within the organization, former SPLC staffer Bob Moser recounted in a scathing essay published in The New Yorker on Thursday.

Moser described the SPLC as a “highly-profitable scam” that “never lived up to the values it espoused,” despite its portrayal to gullible donors.

“We were part of the con, and we knew it,” Moser wrote.

The SPLC is known to label pedestrian conservative organizations as “hate groups,” and is a key resource for Amazon, Google and other tech companies in policing “hate speech.”

The non-profit recently reported more than half a billion dollars in assets, including $121 million in off-shore funds.

So, just who is this bunch of foaming-at-the-mouth, snot-nosed Liberals known as the SPLC?

Per discoverthenetworks.org

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was founded in 1971 by two young Alabama lawyers, 35-year-old Morris Dees and 28-year-old Joseph Levin, Jr. The latter served as the Center’s legal director from 1971-76, but it was Dees who would emerge as the long-term “face” of the organization. A leftist who views the U.S. as an irredeemably racist nation, Dees, upon launching SPLC, joined forces with an African American who would serve as a perfect complement to him ideologically—the civil-rights activist Julian Bond.

Identifying itself as a “nonprofit civil rights organization” committed to “fighting hate and bigotry” while “seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society,” SPLC describes the United States as a country “seething” with “racial violence” and “intolerance against those who are different.” “Hate in America is a dreadful, daily constant,” says the Center, and violent crimes against members of minority groups like blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, and Arabs/Muslims “are not isolated incidents,” but rather, “eruptions of a nation’s intolerance.” To combat this epidemic of “bigotry,” SPLC dedicates itself to “tracking and exposing” the activities of “hate groups and other extremists throughout the United States.” Specifically, the Center’s “Hate & Extremism” initiative publishes its findings in SPLC’s Hatewatch blog and in its quarterly journal, the Intelligence Report, which claims to be “the nation’s preeminent periodical monitoring the radical right in the U.S.”

SPLC first gained widespread national recognition in 1987, its seventeenth year of activity, by winning a $7 million verdict in a civil lawsuit against the United Klans of America (UKA) for the role that organization had played in the death of a black Alabama teenager. By the time that lawsuit was filed, UKA was already a destitute, impotent, disintegrating entity that virtually all white Americans had emphatically rejected; the SPLC suit merely drove the final nail into the UKA coffin. SPLC boasts that it has likewise won “crushing jury verdicts” that effectively shut down groups like the White Aryan Resistance (with a $12 million judgment in 1991), the White Patriot Party militia, and the Aryan Nations (with a $6.5 million judgment in 2001).

This has been SPLC’s modus operandi since its inception: to initiate “innovative lawsuits” against prominent hate groups for crimes that their individual members commit. In these suits, declares Morris Dees proudly, “We absolutely take no prisoners. When we get into a legal fight we go all the way.” The leftist writer Ken Silverstein, who in 2000 wrote a penetrating exposé of SPLC for Harper’s magazine, notes that the targets of these suits tend to be “mediagenic villains” who are “eager to show off their swastikas for the news cameras.” As Dees and SPLC well understand, such figures stand the best chance of triggering an emotional public response that translates, in turn, into financial contributions from donors eager to combat the perceived threat.

Inflating the Numbers on “Hate”

As of 2016, SPLC identified 892 active “hate groups” in the United States. Asserting that the vast majority of such organizations are “right wing,” the Center says they include “the Ku Klux Klan,” “the neo-Nazi movement,” “neo-Confederates,” “racist skinheads,” “antigovernment militias,” “Christian Identity adherents,” and a variety of “anti-immigrant,” “anti-LGBT,” “anti-Muslim,” and “alternative Right” organizations. While also identifying a tiny smattering of black separatist entities as hate groups, SPLC takes pains to point out that black organizations must be judged by a different standard than their white counterparts, because “much black racism in America is, at least in part, a response to centuries of white racism.” SPLC contends that from 2000 to 2012, the number of hate groups in the U.S. increased by 67%—a surge allegedly “fueled by anger and fear over the nation’s ailing economy, an influx of non-white immigrants, and the diminishing white majority, as symbolized by the election of the nation’s first African-American president”—i.e., Barack Obama. In other words, white Americans’ reflexive bigotry allegedly triggered a host of hate-filled responses to the increased political and cultural influence wielded by nonwhites. And America’s racists, by SPLC’s calculus, are almost unanimously conservatives—as evidenced by the caption featured in the “Hatewatch” section of SPLC’s website: “Hatewatch monitors and exposes the activities of the American radical right.” The radical left gets no mention at all.

I do not know exactly what the “problems” are at the SPLC that are causing Cohen’s resignation.

However, perhaps it had something to do with the organization’s relationship with the Obama Administration.

In late July of 2018, it was revealed that the FBI had worked with the SPLC in 2009, using the organization to help them identify “domestic terrorism groups”.

2009? What happened in 2009? Oh, yeah. Barack Hussein Obama was inaugurated as 44th President of the United States of America and the Federal Government, the DOF and the FBI included took a severe turn to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum.

It was during this time, that the Professional Bureaucrats in the Hierarchy of the DOJ and the FBI pledged their loyalty to “The Lightbringer” and his “Democratic Socialist” Political Ideology, which he so feverishly attempted to install in the place of America’s Constitutional Republic system of government which our Founders bequeathed us.

For the Administration and the FBI at that time to identify the SPLC as “well-known, established, and credible” gives you a clue as to just how incestuous the relationship between the Obama Administration and all of the 501 non-profit organizations like Obama’s own Organizing for America, and the SPLC, was.

As troubling a past as all of that was, it is the present that is even more troubling.

Why did then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions not instruct the FBI Director to examine the Bureau’s relationships with all of disruptive Far Left Organizations like the SPLC when he took office at the beginning of the Trump Administration?

And, here’s another thought…

What sort of role has these Far Left Organizations been covertly playing in the effort of the DOJ/FBI Deep State Operatives to sabotage and depose President Trump?

If the FBI has more “friends” like the Southern Poverty Law Center, they literally have a network of Far Left Shadow Operatives possibly working to bring down the current Administration.

Talk about your spy novel. That whirring sound that you are hearing is the sound of Tom Clancy spinning like a pin-wheel in his grave.

Vichy Republican John McCain Gave FISA Dossier to FBI and Media Outlets One Month After Trump’s Election

160629-john-mccain-mn-1105_640338c3828c9d8d9470b6ad32c00462.nbcnews-fp-1200-800

The great Billy Joel sings “We didn’t start the fire”.

Well, according to those in the know, the late Senator from Arizona, John McCain, did.

FoxNews.com reports that

Newly unsealed court filings show how the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and an associate shared with the FBI and a host of media outlets the unverified dossier that alleged the Russians had compromising information on now-President Trump.

McCain had denied being the source for BuzzFeed after it published the dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, but had acknowledged giving it to the FBI.

In a newly unsealed declaration from September, former senior counterintelligence FBI agent Bill Priestap confirmed that the FBI received a copy of the first 33 pages of the dossier in December 2016 from McCain.

In another filing, David Kramer — a former State Department official and McCain associate — said in a Dec. 13, 2017, deposition that the dossier was given to him by author and former British spy Christopher Steele, which he then provided to more than a dozen journalists at outlets including CNN, BuzzFeed and The Washington Post. The details were first reported by The Daily Caller.

The report was also shared with State Department official Victoria Nuland, Obama National Security Council official Celeste Wallander and Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.

The filings were unsealed as part of an ongoing libel case against BuzzFeed by a Russian businessman.

In his deposition, Kramer said that McCain gave a copy of the dossier to then-FBI Director James Comey on Dec. 9. Kramer told investigators that it was the sense from Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson that “having Senator McCain provide it to the FBI would give it a little more oomph than it had had up until that point.”

“I think they felt a senior Republican was better to be the recipient of this rather than a Democrat because if it were a Democrat, I think that the view was that it would have been dismissed as a political attack,” he said.

Kramer also described how BuzzFeed News reporter Ken Bensinger came to get hold of the dossier, before the outlet became the first to publish it in its entirety.

He said that he showed Bensinger the dossier in December at the McCain Institute, but did not allow him to take pictures of it. But Kramer said he left Bensinger alone to read the memos and, in that time, Bensinger took photos of the dossier.

Kramer said he panicked when he saw that BuzzFeed News had published the document in its entirety online on Jan. 10, and immediately sought to have it taken down.

“I called Mr. Bensinger, and my first words out of my mouth were ‘you are gonna get people killed,’” he said.

The FBI extensively relied on the dossier in its warrant applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court in seeking to surveil Trump aide Carter Page — even though some of the dossier’s claims have been called into question, including a claim that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen traveled to Prague to pay off Russian hackers and other more salacious claims about Trump himself.

Back on February 1, 2018, TheHIll.com relayed a slightly different story…

“The fact that half to three-quarters of the evidence the FBI used to unleash the most awesome of surveillance powers upon Donald Trump’s inner circle came from sources tied directly to his Democratic opponent should worry us all, especially when that happened during an election,” said one senior Republican directly familiar with the evidence, describing the party’s core concerns.

“The FBI allowed itself to be used by Clinton partisans to parlay single-sourced, mostly unverified evidence into a counterintelligence probe with clear weaknesses that weren’t disclosed,” the source added.

Sources in both parties and in law enforcement say the emergence of Steele and his dossier in the summer of 2016 gave the FBI the jolt to open a full counterintelligence probe into alleged Trump-Russia collusion. 

Steele, a British intelligence officer for decades, had provided reliable evidence that helped the FBI in a prior foreign corruption case and his early package of information contained multiple allegations of Trump-Russia collusion organized and sourced liked real raw intelligence, sources said. 

So the FBI put great credence in Steele’s work product when it approached the courts for legal surveillance authority, even though much of what Steele provided could not be immediately corroborated, the sources said. 

Steele was employed by the research firm Fusion GPS, which was in turn being paid to do opposition research on Trump by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Fusion GPS was initially hired by the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website backed in part by Republican donor Paul Singer, to dig into Trump. As Trump was clinching the GOP nomination, the Free Beacon told Fusion GPS to stop doing research. Fusion GPS was then hired by Clinton and the DNC through the law firm Perkins Coie.

(Now, pay attention to these next few paragraphs. Here’s the interesting part.)

Republican investigators say they have evidence that Steele first approached the FBI with his allegations on July 5, 2016, the same day then-FBI Director James Comey announced he would not pursue criminal charges against Clinton for passing more than 100 classified documents through her private email server.

Republicans believe the date of Steele’s approach to the FBI is evidence of politics, since his employer was being paid by a Clinton campaign that for months was angered by the bureau’s probe of the email controversy.

Republican investigators say it is unclear exactly when the FBI learned that Steele was being paid by Clinton’s campaign. But by late July 2016, just weeks after he first contacted the FBI, the formal counterintelligence probe was opened, the sources said.

The late Senator John McCain spent most of his political life playing both ends against the middle to his own advantage.

The fact that he facilitated the FISA Dossier getting into the hands of the Obama Administration’s FBI is not a shock to me.

And, neither is the fact that, according to the discrepancies between what the “Republican Investigators” told The Hill.com and what the newly-released transcripts reveal, some of McCain’s fellow Republicans on Capitol Hill were covering his duplicity.

McCain’s hatred for everything that Trump represented, in terms of upsetting the Washingtonian Status Quo either blinded the Senator from Arizona to the fact that he was doing Obama and Hillary’s dirty work or he knew the source of the funding for the FISA Dossier and he just didn’t care.

The second scenario would not surprise me at all.

McCain was an Old School Politician, a Vichy Republican who would screw his own political party in a heartbeat.

The word “populism” first reappeared in the American Lexicon, when Sarah Palin almost dragged John McCain’s RINO Rear across the Finish Line, in the Presidential Election of 2008.

The Grassroots Movement, which began back then, through the hard work of average Middle Class Americans, like you and me, led us to a seminal moment in American Politics. on the night of November 8, 2016.

A “Citizen Statesman”, such as our Founding Fathers envisioned, became the Republican Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America.

Trump know that he had to build a coalition, in order to win the Presidency.

Ronald Reagan, and, I am not comparing Trump to Reagan, figured out in 1980, that, in order to win the presidency, you had to bypass the Republican Establishment and go directly to the American People.

That is exactly what Donald J. Trump did.

Looking back, I are pretty sure that the “upstart” Trump’s candidacy angered the late Senator from Arizona.

And, what better way to make sure that the Status Quo in Washington, DC would be maintained than to sabotage the presidency of a rank outsider?

Now, I realize that Senator McCain is no longer here to defend himself….but…

“At this point, what difference does it make?”

Until He Comes,

Rosenstein to Step Down in Mid-March…Why Not Fire Him Now?

FoxNews.com reports that

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave his role at the Justice Department by mid-March, a senior DOJ official told Fox News on Monday.

An official announcement of who has been selected to replace Rosenstein could come as early as this week. A Trump administration official added that Attorney General William Barr has picked Jeffrey Rosen, who currently serves as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation, to take over for Rosenstein.

A graduate of Northwestern University and Harvard Law School, Rosen previously served as General Counsel and Senior Policy Advisor for the White House Office of Management and Budget (2006 to 2009) and as General Counsel at the Department of Transportation (2003 to 2006), according to his online biography.

Rosen, confirmed for his current role by the Senate in May 2017, works under Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao in overseeing the daily operations of the department.

Fox News reported in January that Rosenstein was expected to step down in the coming weeks to ensure a smooth transition for Barr, who was sworn-in on Thursday.

Rosenstein long thought of his role as a two-year position and the two-year mark is coming soon, officials close to the departing attorney general previously told Fox News.

Speculation of Rosenstein’s departure mounted after the firing of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in November. He has, until recently, overseen Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into whether Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election. Rosenstein has often been a target of President Trump on Twitter.

Most recently, Trump accused Rosenstein, along with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, of pursuing an “illegal and treasonous” plot against him after McCabe detailed private DOJ discussions about secretly recording and potentially ousting the president.

“He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught,” the president tweeted early Monday.

Trump continued: “There is a lot of explaining to do to the millions of people who had just elected a president who they really like and who has done a great job for them with the Military, Vets, Economy and so much more. This was the illegal and treasonous ‘insurance policy’ in full action!”

Rosenstein, who was nominated to his post by Trump in 2017, repeatedly has denied he “pursued or authorized recording the president” and also has denied McCabe’s suggestion that the deputy attorney general had broached the idea of invoking the Constitution’s 25th Amendment, which allows Cabinet members to seek the removal of a president if they conclude that he or she is mentally unfit.

The Justice Department echoed both denials in a statement released last week, saying Rosenstein “was not in a position to consider invoking the 25th Amendment.”

Last summer, 11 House Republicans introduced five articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The impeachment articles accused Rosenstein of intentionally withholding documents and information from Congress, failure to comply with congressional subpoenas and abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

At the time, I wrote

The Hierarchy of the DOJ, like our municipal police organizations around the nation, are supposed to “serve and protect” the citizens of our great country.

Not themselves and the Democratic Party.

The silly games which Rosenstein and the Hierarchy of the FBI and the Special Counsel which he appointed have been playing for the entirety of the Trump Presidency became old, stale, and unappreciated by the American Public a long time ago.

A Deputy Attorney General of the Department of Justice has repeatedly told members of the House of Representatives that he did not know diddly-squat about the activities of those under him.

If you buy that, I would like to talk to you about purchasing a lifetime membership in the Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez Center for Rational Thought.

It is time to begin the process of restoring the System of Checks and Balances to the Three Branches of Government which our Founding Fathers so magnificently created and bequeathed to us.

Certain representatives of the Judicial Branch have decided that they outrank the Legislative and the Executive.

The Founders created all three branches to be servants of the American People.

It’s time to re-introduce Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to a concept personified by a statue, known as “Blind Justice”.

Little did any of us suspect the depth of Rosenstein’s involvement in the Deep State Operation which began under the Obama Administration to first keep Trump from becoming president and then to somehow, someway force him out of office.

That operation began as election tampering, just as Obama tried in Israel to get rid of Netanyahu. When that did not work (again), the Deep State Operatives, with Rosenstein involved, came up with a plot to overthrow the president through the use of the 25th Amendment.

That, gentle readers, constitutes sedition and treason. There are no other words for what they attempted to do.

Back in the time of President Lincoln, Rosenstein and his co-conspirators would have already been executed by hanging or firing squad.

This weasel is being allowed to retire from government service with a big fat pension.

I believe that President Trump not only needs to fire Rosenstein immediately, he needs to have new Attorney General Barr begin investigations on the Deep State Operation that began under Obama and Hillary, also opening back up investigations on Hillary’s “E-mailgate” and the Pay For Play Scheme known as the Clinton Foundation.

And, while AG Barr is at it, he needs to investigate Adam Schiff’s connection to Fusion GPS.

It is way past time to play hardball with those who wished to overturn the will of the American people and to overthrow a sitting president.

Until He Comes,
