As more and more leaks about the ongoing “Russian collusion” witch hunt by Robert Mueller appear in print, it seems to me that if Russia had been trying to erode our faith in our institutions, the Deep State is accomplishing what Russia failed to do. The Obama claque’s efforts were initially intended to help Clinton when they thought she would win and no one would know about their crimes. Then they continued the unlawful spying to cover up their role in the worst case of misuse of federal power in our history, to effect the removal or emasculation of the President,
This is the typical MO of the democrats...they commit crimes such as those noted in the article and then accuse the Republicans of wrong-doing to keep the spotlight off themselves. The media is always quite ready to "collude" with the dems to aid and abet their mission to destroy Republicans.
This has been true for years and years but they may have stepped in their own stuff this time.
What really puzzles me is why Trump is NOT getting on the phone and telling the FBI (and other agencies) to provide ALL documents requested by Congress and others or be fired on the spot.
We can only hope that things are going on quietly in the background toward getting the truth and getting convictions !!!
Clarice has put together the most in-depth, clear examination of this filthy operation. It is shocking to see the lengths to which the previous regime would go to impose their will on the country. We really dodged a big one by refusing to elect The Entitled One. But the Alinskyites will continue to collude against the President, and the American people.
Excellent piece of true journalism. All angles covered, all dots connected. And Mueller working furiously to find something, anything to cover up the Obama administration´s domestic spying on political opponents.
FTA "Based on what I’ve read and observed, while the initial surveillance was to stop Trump and help Clinton, Obama used FISA to provide a “national security” cover for politically spying on Trump right up to the inauguration. As he notes, the first 2016 application was made the month after Trump obtained the nomination and the second in October, the month before the election.
As the unmasking picked up pace after the election, the reasonable assumption is that its purpose was to undo the results of the election or hamstring the incoming President.
Now Obama and his allies are or should be terrified that the scope of the illegal surveillance is revealing their criminal acts.
This is why I believe Mueller is growing increasingly desperate to find one crime by one person he can force by threat of jail to provide any shred of anything that might be used to justify their illegal espionage. Greenfield’s conclusion is apt: “The left is sitting on the biggest crime committed by a sitting president. The only way to cover it up is to destroy his Republican successor. A turning point in history is here. If Obama goes down, the left will go down with him. If his coup succeeds, then America ends.”
First obama is not concerned one bit he knows he´s untouchable. Second the Democrats aren´t worried either because the Republicans are in charge and like the Benghazi hearings nothing will happen all sound and fury signifying nothing. Third my guess is Mueller will find some process crime to vindicate all the domestic spying and the end of America. Mueller will be the one to end the Constitutional Republic as founded. God help us.
It has ALWAYS been the Democrats who have been in collusion with the communists. John McCain has always been a simpering weakling drug along by his Dad and Grandad. That weak mind was susceptible to communist brain washing, and we are seeing it´s results.
No Sunday morning warm buttery muffin here. Clarice provides useful information we need to hear. There is no good ending. FTA: ´´If Obama goes down, the left will go down with him. If his coup succeeds, then America ends.´´
Well what do you know! American basically transformed, and years after the promise first was made.
It may be valid to assume that Mueller wants to make his claims in the future when he feels it will have the maximum Democrat benefit in the next election. Then the media can scream "SHOCKING REVELATIONS!" for the phoney accusations and innuendos.
The problem for them is that they are dealing with a president who is vastly more intelligent than they are. Perhaps Sessions and President Trump´s personal investigators and lawyers are building cases as of now to overwhelm the witch hunt broadcasts. Timing is an important consideration and it is too early to expect to see the activity engaged in by the Trump administration.
Keep your powder dry! Keep the faith! Better days are ahead!
As to be expected from Clarice.. a most comprehensive piece on how this happened, and why it is being covered up. One thing I learned really did connect the last of the dots. FTA~
"Six U.S. agencies [the FBI, NSA, CIA, Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Treasury financial crimes division under DHS, Justice Department]created a stealth task force, spearhead by CIA’s Brennan, to run domestic surveillance on Trump associates and possibly Trump himself.
To feign ignorance and to seemingly operate within U.S. laws, the agencies freelanced the wiretapping of Trump associates to the British spy agency GCHQ.
The decision to insert GCHQ as a back door to eavesdrop was sparked by the denial of two FISA Court warrant applications filed by the FBI to seek wiretaps of Trump associates.
GCHQ did not work from London or the UK. In fact the spy agency worked from NSA’s headquarters in Fort Meade, MD with direct NSA supervision and guidance to conduct sweeping surveillance on Trump associates.
The Justice Department and FBI set up the meeting at Trump Tower between Trump Jr., Manafort and Kushner with controversial Russian officials to make Trump’s associates appear compromised.
Following the Trump Tower sit down, GCHQ began digitally wiretapping Manafort, Trump Jr., and Kushner".
So now we know. Comey and FBI went rogue. Obama and Lynch in this up to their eyeballs, but using Rice, Powers, and most of all Brennan. If Congress knows all this and does not act immediately, they become part of the problem as well. Most disturbing, and you can´t tell me Trump, Sessions, and Rosenstein don´t know all this too! WHY are they covering?? Could it be Trump will sacrifice Manafort as long as he is assured redemption of wrong doing himself? This is bigger than Trump.
The malevolent Bob Mueller has been trying to get himself fired long enough to have concluded that President Trump is far too patient -- and way, way too smart-- to fall for the trap. Mueller´s dreams of his , malignant face miraculously morphing into the sweet face of the Enemedia-canonized Saint Archibald Cox have turned into a nightmare. Mueller has utterly failed the unhinged and unforgiving Deep State, which was looking to Mueller as Joe Stalin once looked to his Special Persecutor Lavrently "Show me the man and I´ll find you a crime" Beria. The Clintons and Barack Hussein Obama are not amused. When Stalin left office under the ultimate term limit, Krushchev got Pavel Batisky to administer to Beria the bullets therapy administered more recently by Denizens of the Deep State to poor folks like Vince Foster and Seth Rich -- as earlier noted, the Deep State is deeply unforgiving. Mueller´s new nightmare is seeing the faces of sweethearts like John Muhammed Brennan and John Pizzaboy Podesta morph into the face of Pavel Batisky. Have a nice night, Bob.

So. We need a Special "Special Investigator" to investigate the Special Investigator, and finally prove that it wasn´t Donald J Trump that committed crimes against the United States Government, but it was the United States Government that committed crimes against Donald J Trump.
Kudos to Clarice Feldman, this article connects the dots and gives a great timeline. Showing the NSA,CIA and FBI were “politically weaponized”. How Samantha Power’s did survelliance of one a day in the year of 2016. Also how the unmasking of 260 people is blowing my mind. How Comey used FISA to unmask Paul Manafort, but would not use the NSA to get Hillary’s missing e-mails. How the DOJ set up Trump Tower which brings into this crime Loretta Lynch. This was a mass crime and I believe Hillary and Bill were in on it, that’s why Hillary is so peeved off because it backfired. We caught Loretta with Bill on the tarmac, the question is how many other times did they meet? We have no idea. The Democrats should be careful what they wish for because Mueller is going to come upon this. The question is would he reveal what he found? The other question is who was running the show? Let’s guess all his peons were in on it….FBI Comey, Central Intelligence Clapper, CIA Brennan, DOJ Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice and I’m sure Valarie Jarrett was manning the ship. Now who could be behind this? Did you ever hear the old saying “The Fish Stinks From The Head Down”? Here is the answer Barack Hussein Obama.
Evidence emerges daily that all top Democrat officials were busily building their own Iron Curtain around America, yet not one of them is yet behind bars, where they belong. Nixon would have been stunned at their audacity and effectiveness. The whole operation makes Watergate look like amateur hour, yet our MSM pretends unawareness. Doesn’t this all make Mueller’s hit team of extreme leftists appear to be a tad suspicious?
Call me cynical, but there is no one in Washington who wants to tackle this. No one. Accusing a former President for spying is just not going to happen and we all know why. Washington is a place bathed in corruption and it will not allow a crime of this magnitude to be exposed. While this egregious abuse of power cries for justice, it will never be heard. There is no stomach for accountability in the Swamp, never has been, never will be.
From a report I heard yesterday on an ACLJ show (Jay Sekulow), most of Ms. Power´s requests weren´t one a day, but dozens a day during the final weeks of her tenure at the UN.
What President Trump and the DOJ needs to do is hire a Special Counsel, you know, somebody "universally respected." But it would be okay to hire Republican-linked (non-RINO) to run the investigation.
But to be fair, the investigation cannot spend any more money than the Mueller Kangaroo Deep State Find the Person We´ll Find the Crime sideshow. Since Mueller and his conflict-of-interest team has a couple months head start, this should be pretty easy to track.
My guess is that the Democrats will insist Mueller close up shop by the end of the week.
If all of this corruption and illegal activity that is wide spread thru the federal government, I believe that enough people of this country will rise up in armed revolution and put a stop of it one and for ever. And they will make some changes to the Constitution that will keep this from happening again. I say this because I know that there are enough of us that do what the Constitution was intended to be. And in this point of history, we also can see where the weak spots are and have they have been taken advantage by those that simply have no use of our Constitution. I wish it would come in my life time.
"Nobody wants our intel agencies to be used like the Stasi in East Germany..." Well, guess what? We didn´t only import Nazi scientists to America after WWII (Operation Paperclip). We also imported lots of high-ranking Nazis and intelligence operatives, to help us set up the CIA. They´ve been infiltrated by Nazis since WWII.
I´m beginning to believe that we didn´t win WWII. Most of the Nazi leadership got away and continued to cooperate with the U.S. government. Stalin got absolute control of all of Eastern Europe, which was worse for it´s citizens than Nazi occupation. The Nazis only wanted obedience. The communists wanted to control not only your actions, but your thoughts and beliefs.
Mueller Investigation Desperate As More Information About Obama’s Illegal Spying Is Uncovered “Former Clinton aide Dick Morris told the Gateway Pundit that the CIA is currently running a coup d’état against President Trump as if tanks were rolling up Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Now Obama and his allies are or should be terrified that the scope of the illegal surveillance is revealing their criminal acts.”
“This is why I believe Mueller is growing increasingly desperate to find one crime by one person he can force by threat of jail to provide any shred of anything that might be used to justify their illegal espionage. Greenfield’s conclusion is apt: “The left is sitting on the biggest crime committed by a sitting president. The only way to cover it up is to destroy his Republican successor. A turning point in history is here. If Obama goes down, the left will go down with him. If his coup succeeds, then America ends.”
The entire motive for all of this was keeping and enhancing power in Washington. Believe me, they knew that they were running out of Runway and their hoped for permanent governing majority was in jeopardy. This was their solution.
Trump administration official said Mike Pompeo would replace the current secretary of state within weeks, but it’s unclear whether Trump has approved. The White House has developed a plan to replace the secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, with Mike Pompeo, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, within weeks, a senior Trump administration official said on Thursday. Under the plan, Republican senator Tom Cotton would be tapped to replace Pompeo at the CIA, the New York Times reported, citing senior officials.
Democrat Ralph Northam has defeated Republican Ed Gillespie in the Virginia governor race on Tuesday, according to an NBC News projection. Both national parties have spent millions of dollars in Virginia and are closely watching it as an early barometer of the political climate and test of campaign tactics in the first major election since Trump´s unexpected victory last year. Northam, an Army veteran and pediatric neurologist who serves as the state’s lieutenant governor, struggled to capitalize on his ad-ready biography as the race descended into a nasty culture war. Popular Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe is term-limited.
When people ask me “what went wrong with the polls in 2016,” I have three responses. The first, and most important, is that the polls weren’t unusually “wrong.” In fact, they were as accurate as they were in 2012, when polls were routinely celebrated as the best tool for predicting elections. Second, the polls were off in the particular places they were off because they systematically under-sampled white working-class voters in the upper Midwest. The third point is related to the second: Pollsters have to make choices about what the electorate looks like, which can bias results in ways that
The stunning revelation by longtime operative Donna Brazile that the Hillary Clinton campaign secretly took control — literal control — of the Democratic National Committee a year before Hillary became the party’s nominee is the talk of American politics. As it should be. Brazile had been tapped for the job when DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign.Brazile’s piece in Politico describes her shock at the discovery of formal legal paperwork between the two entities when she took the reins at the DNC in August 2016.
It’s good to be Carlos Correa. After the All-star shortstop helped lead the Astros to their first World Series win in franchise history Wednesday night, he popped the question to his girlfriend, Daniella Rodriguez, a former Miss Texas. She said yes.*
Before I called Bernie Sanders, I lit a candle in my living room and put on some gospel music. I wanted to center myself for what I knew would be an emotional phone call. I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested.
The man taken into custody by the New York Police Department is 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov of Tampa, Florida, according to an ABC News report. Police stopped Saipov in Mount Holly Springs Borough, Pennsylvania, just south of Carlisle, in March 2015 and he gave police a Paterson, New Jersey address, according to court records. He also was stopped in 2012 in Palmyra, Pa., just east of Hershey, and also listed a Paterson address. Saipov is an Uzbek national and came to the U.S. in 2010, NBC News reported.
One of our most knowledgeable law enforcement readers writes to emphasize a point bearing on our coverage of the Trump Dossier. He adds valuable context to our commentary: As a retired FBI Special Agent with over two decades of experience in counterintelligence, I’d like to make a point that Scott and Paul are surely aware of, but which it’s useful to keep at the front of your mind. Scott regularly refers to the Trump dossier as the “Rosetta Stone” of the “muh Russia” narrative. That’s true, but it’s helpful to go one step further.
Fire officials said Saturday that wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour could further spread the massive blazes across Northern California that have been ravaging the region for almost a week. Saturday’s winds are forecast to be similar to those that stoked the first flames Sunday night, which have mushroomed to more than 15 fires that have scorched 220,000 acres, destroyed an estimated 5,700 structures and caused at least 35 deaths.
A note found in the hotel room of the man who shot into a crowd from his perch in a Las Vegas high-rise included hand-written calculations about where he needed to aim to maximize his accuracy and kill as many people as possible. In an interview airing Sunday on "60 Minutes," three police officers who stormed Stephen Paddock´s hotel room in the Mandalay Bay hotel tell correspondent Bill Whitaker new details about the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. The officers were the first to see Paddock´s body and the arsenal of weapons and ammunition he had stockpiled.
In addition to his frequent forays into casinos and gun shops, Las Vegas strip killer Stephen Paddock took 20 cruises, many of them in Europe and the Middle East, investigators have learned. The cruises included stops at ports in Spain, Italy, Greece, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, according to information provided by a law enforcement source who asked not to be identified because the source was not authorized to share information about the investigation. Paddock´s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, accompanied him on nine of the cruises.
The Islamic State continued insisting that they have a connection to Sunday night´s massacre in Las Vegas with the publication of an infographic about the crime filling the second page of their 16-page weekly newsletter. Today´s release marks the 100th issue of al-Naba, which is distributed in ISIS territories and online via mediums such as Telegram and social media as a PDF. ISIS claimed through their Amaq news agency Monday morning that the "Las Vegas attacker is a soldier of the Islamic State who carried out the attack in response to calls for targeting coalition countries."
Conventional wisdom is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asleep at the wheel – from recusing himself unnecessarily from the Trump-Russia collusion investigation to doing nothing about the politicization and weaponization of the Department of Justice. He also gave free rein to his deputy A.G., Rod Rosenstein, who is in turn allowing Special Counsel Robert Mueller unlimited time, money, and jurisdiction to investigate President Trump´s entire life. Last summer, Trump expressed disappointment in Sessions, calling him "beleaguered," wondering why Sessions wasn´t looking into Hillary Clinton´s emails and true election chicanery. Rudy Giuliani was floated as a possible replacement. Was Trump truly
There is strong circumstantial evidence that an insidious plot unprecedented in American history was hatched within the FBI and the Obama Justice Department to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. (Snip) Such a plot would show that partisans within the FBI and the Justice Department, driven by personal animus and a sense of political righteousness, surreptitiously conspired to subvert electoral democracy itself in our country. As of now, we have no proof beyond a reasonable doubt of such a plot. But we have very strong circumstantial evidence.
There’s bad news and there’s worse news for President Donald Trump in new polls released this week. First comes the latest round of polling showing that Trump is the most unpopular president on record. Just 32% of respondents to a new Associated Press-NORC poll said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while an overwhelming 67% they disapproved. Among those who don’t think the president is doing a good job, more than half say they “strongly disapprove” of his work. The poll — conducted earlier this month — also suggests that nearly 70% of Americans believe the United States is “heading
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) suggested Thursday that Americans need to have more babies or risk a collapse of popular entitlements like Medicare and Social Security. “This is going to be the new economic challenge for America: people. Baby boomers are retiring — I did my part, but we need to have higher birth rates in this country,” Ryan, a father of three, told reporters as he riffed on how Republicans will tackle entitlement and welfare reform in 2018. “Baby boomers are retiring and we have fewer people following them in the workforce.
Female actresses attending this year’s Golden Globes ceremony are reportedly planning to wear only black in protest of the widening sexual abuse scandal that has engulfed Hollywood this year.According to E! News, the plan originally started with just a small group of women but gradually grew as other women wished to express solidarity. “So all of the female actresses and attendees, or most of them at least, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest,” said ceremony host Jackie Oshry on The Morning Breath radio show. “They’re all going to be wearing black, obviously to protest the injustices
Santa Claus, Christmas trees and the colors red and green are examples of inappropriate “religious iconography” during the holiday season, according to a paper distributed during a “Respecting Religious Diversity” event at the University of Minnesota."Jewish Hanukkah" is targeted, too, with menorahs and the colors blue and white also described as being "not appropriate." “Consider neutral-themed parties such as a ‘winter celebration,’” the handout read. “Decorations, music, and food should be general and not specific to any one religion.” It was part of a Dean’s Dialogues “Religious Diversity and Holidays” event within the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource
CNN anchors Anderson Cooper and Christian Amanpour discuss reports that leaders of Syria, Myanmar Russia, and other authoritarian states have all used the term "fake news" to dismiss credible reports they disagree with. Ryan Crocker, who has served as ambassador to several middle eastern countries joins the conversation. Amanpour said that Trump´s use of the term has given dictators around the world license to paralyze the press and if it goes on, it will put democracy and the entire world order at risk. "This is really serious, and it just has to stop. Because it is undermining not just our safety, but
I don’t know whether this is comedy or a sign that in rural America, Democrats really don’t have anyone to run in statewide races. There were rumors that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) could become the next director of the CIA, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo would become secretary of state, and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be asked to take a hike. Talk about some unwelcome Thanksgiving news if you’re Tillerson. The Trump White House has rejected the notion that this plan is in the works. Tillerson himself said he’s never considered leaving his current post.
Democrats hate her (#Tolerance)... Feminists despise her (#GlassCeiling)... Progressives want her silenced (#Diversity)... And the liberal media dreads her. Who is she? She’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders. In case you’ve been hiding under a freshly broken shard of glass from one of the ceilings being broken all over Washington D.C. lately - keep reading, it gets better. She’s the 3rd female to ever hold the office of the White House Press Secretary. - Dee Dee Myers was the first under Clinton (1993-1994) - Dana Perino was the 2nd who served under Bush in 2007 And it’s no surprise that Trump put her there because she’s perfect for the job.
For much of the year, Kirsten Gillibrand’s critics — sensing a presidential aspirant in their midst — had assumed that the New York senator could not hear enough about herself. For one day at least, it appeared she had. It had been about 10 hours since President Trump accused her of “begging” for campaign contributions that she “would do anything” to secure, and the Ms. Gillibrand, driving with her 14-year-old son on Tuesday evening, flipped on the radio looking for an update on the Senate race in Alabama. The top story, instead, was her. The radio went off again. What, exactly,
Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin has requested UN Peacekeeping Forces to the City of Chicago to cut down on violence in the Windy City. Boykin says peacekeeping forces are needed to fight the “quiet genocide” in the streets of Chicago. The joys of liberalism: 603 people have been shot and killed in Chicago so far this year. 3,454 people have been shot. There have been 652 homicides in Chicago so far this year. CBS Chicago reported: Some politicians in the past have recommended deploying the National Guard to help Chicago quell gun violence, but Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin went
Spurred by the multitude of sexual abuse scandals, top Hollywood executives have tapped Anita Hill to chair the newly formed Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace. The commission made the announcement Friday following a meeting convened by Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, Nike Foundation founder and co-chair Maria Eitel, Nina Shaw, and venture captialist Freada Kapor Klein. “The Commission will not seek just one solution, but a comprehensive strategy to address the complex and inter-related causes of the problems of parity and power,” said Kennedy.
