Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded
With Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump

American Spectator, by George Neumayr

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/19/2017 5:20:42 AM

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s. Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on

Judge Napolitano vindicated:

From the Guardian article linked:

The White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, claimed the “British spying agency” GCHQ had carried out the bugging. Spicer cited an unsubstantiated report on Fox News. Fox later distanced itself from the report.

The claims prompted an extremely unusual rebuke from GCHQ, which generally refrains from commenting on all intelligence matters. The agency described the allegations first made by a former judge turned media commentator, Andrew Napolitano, as “nonsense”.

“They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored,” a spokesperson for GCHQ said.

Instead both US and UK intelligence sources acknowledge that GCHQ played an early, prominent role in kickstarting the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation, which began in late July 2016.


Brennan was the prime suspect from the beginning.

#2 Bingo! Absolutely nothing will happen to John "Muhammad" Brennan with Democrats like Elijah Cummings lying and obfuscating as he did on the Benghazi Committee. It´s called treason which we all know no longer exists in this country. The left can do anything they want to destroy the Constitution, our laws, this Republic and the placid Republicans will just watch.

It is NOT John Mohammed but Barack Hussein Mohammed who is the real culprit. When we accept that and have the political will to act on it, then something will happen. Until then it is just a curiosity.

When people at the highest levels in our government can do these things do we even have a system of justice? How many in the Obama regime have been found to be committing blatantly illegal actions against their political foes and even regular citizens and yet they suffer no consequences and are not held responsible. This cannot continue or else the rule of law means nothing. There cannot be one set of laws for the elites in the democrat party and another for the rest of us. Either Republicans step up and fight the good fight to restore law and order in Washington or the country will continue to decline. Also, where is the legal community that espouses to revere the law? Why aren´t they out there demanding that justice be done? Like everything else in this country, they have become politicized to the point that party trumps everything even the rule of law.

Nothing will be done if the matter is left to the Congress or to the liars of the Fake News Enemedia, or depends in any way on any "investigation" involving the participation of the corrupted and compromised James Comey or the FBI he nominally leads in conjunction with his Clinton Cash deputy director Andrew McCabe. People will be punished only if Attorney General Sessions appoints a Special Prosecutor with competence, integrity and courage -- and uses criminal justice tools (subpoenas, grand juries, selective immunization of key but low level "canaries," etc.) to investigate, prosecute and incarcerate the vast conspiracy of Obama lackeys who weaponized our government against Obama´s foes and for Obama´s glory. As for the feckless and feculent fraud Barack Hussein Obama himself, the best justice is having to publicly accept a pardon from Donald Trump -- it isn´t the justice he deserves, but it will avoid a civil war and will forever destroy Obama´s reputation and "legacy" -- even the Fake Historians won´t be able to save him.

Former US Attorney for DC, Joe DiGenova was on local talk radio* this past Monday -it´s a regular appearance to discuss all things legal and the topic of FBI Director Comey came up. Joe said that Comey was the one trying to get to VP Cheney in the Scooter Libby affair and why he was wasn´t fired by President Trump is shocking. So Democrats can misuse the IRS, the FBI and the CIA to go after their political enemies and nothing happens to then, but President just asking the IRS about the returns of a few and it´s WATERGATE and RESIGNATION and DISGRACE of the PRESIDENCY.

Here come de Judge!

Anyone who thinks this simply rises to the level of watergate is in complete denial. This makes watergate look like a toilet flapper valve.

We let a communist be our chief spook, one who has an allegiance with an entity at least a part of which has declared war against us. And we almost elected someone running on the "third term" platform.

Obama wasn´t on our side and neither was Hillary. And half of your neighbors were fine with that.

And in classic fashion they blow a smoke cloud accusing Trump of doing exactly what they did.

If this article and its sources can stand and don´t crumble under scrutiny then this should be our rally cry in the war against the communist coup.

First stop, we need to go after the media. We have to stop patronizing advertisers supporting the opposition propoganda.

So what? This is so much dry grass of news. Why do I say that? Obviously it is true. But, now what happens? Do any of the America hating leftists from the filthy Obama Administration get charged with a crime? Does anyone get arrested? What is the point of laws if they are not going to be enforced? It´s very much like Al Gor snatching grocery sacks full of illegal campaign contributions from China through the Buddhist Temple in Calif, and declaring, "There is no controlling authority" to stop him and the Democrats.

Why even have laws? Just a waste of time.

No scandals in BO´s administration? I think we have some doozies brewing. I hope there is enough evidence to show that BO´s hands were deep in the mud.

From what has been explained about the wide latitude the president has in doing such dirty work "legally", I´ll bet his surrogates are covered against prosecution. But it all needs to be rooted out and placed in the sun.

North Korea, Syria, Iran, ISIS...these are lesser enemies than those who would pervert the United States of America and turn it into a de facto police state targeting the very government and its officials, plus private citizens. There is no greater crime than betraying the trust placed in these people and agencies by their fellow citizens - it is indeed treasonable abuse of that trust and egregious violation of their oaths to protect and defend the Constitution.

I don´t say any of this lightly. If our "trusted" government that remains doesn´t do something very quickly, we are doomed to an Orwellian future of ever deeper surveillance and worse by our overseers. One wonders whether elections have already become a sham - the ever-globalist Uniparty being what it apparently is.

So, President Trump, AG Sessions, and all the rest...what are you going to do about it?

President Trump probably assumes that if he solves a few foreign relations problems and kicks the economy into high gear, it´s a cakewalk in the mids and into a second term.

Don, we the people have flexed our muscles and found they hadn´t atrophied after all. Thanks, but now you have to keep up with US. That swamp you were on about? We don´t want it drained, we want it MOABed, and the alligators´ skins up over the mantle! We are tired of seeing an organized crime family masquerade as a political party and try to tear this country up every time they get a chance and always skate to do it again.

After you have warmed up by disposing of Kim, turn your attention to the REAL danger this country faces: if the professional criminal class we have in government (who are mostly but not exclusively Donkeys) are not decimated legally, eventually we are gonna have to do it illegally at that won´t be pretty.

"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security".

It was a different time, a crazy time, all those…days ago…way back at the end of last week. I remember it like it was, well, just last week, when Democrats suggested that maybe, just maybe, the political rhetoric in the country was a little too heated after one of their own tried to murder as many Republican Congressmen as possible. Like I said, it was a different time. After less than two weeks, that time is done and the political left is back at their lying, hateful rhetoric about how Republicans are hoping to kill as many Americans as possible. It

Third time might be a charm for US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who wed his Scottish actress fiancee Louise Linton in front of President Trump and the First Lady at a lavish, star-studded ceremony in Washington, DC on Saturday. It´s the third marriage for ex-banker Mnuchin, 54, who is reportedly worth upwards of $300 million, and the second marriage for Linton, 36, an Edinburgh-born actress who has appeared in several Hollywood films. She was married to Hollywood lawyer Ronald Richards. They divorced in 2009. The pair exchanged vows on Saturday evening at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium on the National Mall. The 300-person guest

The terrifying and terrible prospect

The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- This August, the U.S. will experience its first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in 99 years. Total solar eclipses occur every year or two or three, often in the middle of nowhere like the South Pacific or Antarctic. What makes this one so special - at least for Americans - is that it will cut diagonally across the entire United States. The path of totality on Aug. 21 - where day briefly becomes night - will pass over Oregon, continuing through the heartland all the way to Charleston, South Carolina. Those on the outskirts - all the way into

Washington -Nancy Pelosi is sending a defiant message to House Democrats who are grumbling about her leadership: Come at me. But while Pelosi´s critics are increasingly vocal, they have not yet answered critical questions about who would fill her leadership and fundraising roles if they were to mount a serious challenge for the perch atop the party Pelosi has held since 2002. Nor have they identified a challenger. At least, not yet. A dozen House Democrats huddled in the office of New York Rep. Kathleen Rice -- an outspoken Pelosi critic -- on Thursday afternoon, among them Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton and

Mueller’s Empire: Legions of Lawyers,

American Greatness, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article

So I’ve been wondering: Why on earth does a prosecutor, brought in to investigate a case in which there is no apparent crime, need a staff of 14 lawyers? Or, I should say, “14 lawyers and counting.” According to the press spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller—yeah, he’s got a press spokesman, too—there are “several more in the pipeline.” Concededly, none of Mueller’s recruits requires Senate confirmation, as do Justice Department officials—notwithstanding that the former may end up playing a far more consequential role in the fate of the Trump administration. But does it seem strange to anyone else that, by comparison,

ATLANTA -- They had a long way to go and a short time to get there, but hundreds of fans in Trans Ams have put the hammer down and made it to Atlanta to celebrate the 40th anniversary of "Smokey and the Bandit." About 350 cars this week retraced actor Burt Reynolds´ wild ride from the Texas-Arkansas line to Atlanta in the movie that roared into pop culture in 1977.

Did Putin show Oliver Stone a fake video? Director

It may be a tempest in a teacup, or, perhaps, a storm in a samovar. Russian social media is reacting strongly to something President Vladimir Putin showed filmmaker Oliver Stone for the director’s much-hyped, four-part series of free-flowing chats with the long-time Russian leader. In episode three of “The Putin Interviews,” the Russian president shows Stone footage on a cellphone of what he claims are Russian operations in Syria. You see heavy bombardment, huge clouds and men running. The Conflict Intelligence Team, a group of Russian researchers who track Russian involvement in military conflicts, says the footage is U.S. Department

It’s still months before Megyn Kelly’s new NBC daytime show is set to premiere, but it already feels like the former Fox News anchor has overstayed her welcome. Only three weeks into her Sunday-night newsmagazine show — a “Dateline” style piece, structured around her interviews with high-profile “gets” — Kelly’s star is dimmer than ever.

Furious at their loss in yet another Trump-era special election, Democrats are calling for the head of ... House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

New York’s own Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-Nassau) is far from alone in saying, “It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.” And Rice backed Pelosi in last year’s leadership fight. The challenger, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), is even

Donald Trump earned respect from the Washington establishment for appointing three of the nation’s most accomplished generals to direct his national-security policy: James Mattis (secretary of defense), H. R. McMaster (national-security adviser), and John Kelly (secretary of homeland security). In the first five months of the Trump administration, the three generals — along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO — have already recalibrated America’s defenses. At home, illegal immigration is down by some 70 percent. Abroad, a new policy of principled realism seeks to reestablish deterrence through credible threats of retaliation. The generals are repairing

Last August, Dominique Heaggan-Brown, an African-American police officer in Milwaukee, shot and killed Sylville Smith, an African-American suspect with a lengthy record who was armed and fleeing the police. Anti-police rioting ensued. Four officers were injured. It was clear from the beginning that the African-American policeman did not shoot Smith for reasons having anything to do with race. But this didn’t matter to the local rioters or to Black Lives Matter activists. Nor did it matter that the facts surrounding the shooting had not yet emerged. As I wrote: The locals are using the incident as an excuse to riot and attack police

The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle

A senior US Energy Department official appointed by the Trump administration once described Barack Obama as a “Kenyan creampuff”, Mark Zuckerberg as an “arrogant, self-hating Jew” and climate scientists as “cultists” and “nuts”, according to a report. William C Bradford, director of the Department’s Office of Indian Energy, also appeared to believe Mr Obama might refuse to step down after his two terms of office, asking “what will we do? Is a military coup the only answer?” The messages were posted on a since-deleted Twitter account, @Brute_Bradford, The Washington Post revealed. Previously Mr Bradford caused

Ramadan will come to an end this weekend with the major Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr, and thus far President Donald Trump’s recognition of Islam’s holiest month has been limited to a statement that almost exclusively addressed violence and terrorism. Breaking with a tradition that dates back more than 20 years, to Bill Clinton’s administration, the White House will not be hosting an iftar—the meal Muslims consume to break their fast—in 2017.

MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski compared President Donald Trump’s administration to North Korea Friday, saying “It does feel like a developing dictatorship.” “I will say you can do some work reading history and reading books about how dictatorship happen. The development of very negative forces taking over and what you are seeing is either this happening right now, or someone who’s not well. Very few options,” Brzezinski continued. Co-host Joe Scarborough tried to lighten to mood during the segment, saying, “I think it’s actually more like Hogan’s Heroes if anything else.” Brzezinski she quietly rebuked Trump once more saying

Many Americans have become accustomed to President Trump’s lies. But as regular as they have become, the country should not allow itself to become numb to them. So we have catalogued nearly every outright lie he has told publicly since taking the oath of office. “I wasn´t a fan of Iraq. I didn´t want to go into Iraq.” (He was for an invasion before he was against it.)Jan. 21 “A reporter for Time magazine — and I have been on their cover 14 or 15 times. I think

Eaarly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race. But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee,

ST. LOUIS - The insurance company for the city of Ferguson, Missouri, paid $1.5 million to settle a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Michael Brown´s parents, the city attorney said Friday. Attorney Apollo Carey disclosed the amount in an email in response to an open records request. The settlement of the federal lawsuit was announced Tuesday, but financial details were not initially released. Carey declined further comment on the settlement. A phone message seeking comment from the attorney for the family, Anthony Gray, was not immediately returned. Brown, 18, was black and unarmed when he was fatally shot by white officer Darren Wilson

The televised White House news briefing, after emerging as a can’t-miss ritual of the early days of the Trump administration, has in recent weeks become shorter, less informative and less accessible, with some of the briefings declared off-limits to live broadcasting. The White House Correspondents’ Association is not pleased. “We believe strongly that Americans should be able to watch and listen to senior government officials face questions from an independent news media,” the group’s president, Jeff Mason of Reuters, wrote in a note to members on Friday. Mr. Mason met on Thursday with Sean Spicer, the White House press

Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton came out swinging in a tweet Friday, saying if Senate Republicans pass their current healthcare bill, they will become the “death party.” Clinton’s post referenced an article from the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute, which cited Harvard researchers as saying “the Senate bill could result in 18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026.” (Snip) The tweet from Clinton follows an earlier tweet urging her supporters to "speak out against" the bill.

So I’ve been wondering: Why on earth does a prosecutor, brought in to investigate a case in which there is no apparent crime, need a staff of 14 lawyers? Or, I should say, “14 lawyers and counting.” According to the press spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller—yeah, he’s got a press spokesman, too—there are “several more in the pipeline.” Concededly, none of Mueller’s recruits requires Senate confirmation, as do Justice Department officials—notwithstanding that the former may end up playing a far more consequential role in the fate of the Trump administration. But does it seem strange to anyone else that, by comparison,

While Democrats obsess over the Russia hacking fantasy and Robert Mueller as Trump´s Javert, President Trump, the Federalist Society, and Senator Chuck Grassley are on the way to making the federal judiciary great again. The Huffington Post noticed and is worried: Trump is unbelievably well-positioned to fill up federal courts with lifetime judges. He inherited a whopping 108 court vacancies when he became president – double the number of vacancies President Barack Obama inherited when he took office. The reason Trump gets to fill so many seats is partly because Obama was slow to fill court vacancies early in his tenure. But

Even though it runs through the heart of L.A’.s Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw neighborhood, most Angelenos would be hard pressed to locate Rodeo Road on a map. In fact, they’d probably point to its ritzy doppelganger — Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive — instead. That may change very soon, however. Residents here are cheering a proposal to rename the asphalt thoroughfare in honor of former President Obama, who visited here when he was a U.S. senator. The news that southwest L.A.´s Rodeo Road may soon be renamed “Obama Boulevard" was received positively by residents of the surrounding Crenshaw district. "I´m so happy, that
