Carter Page claimed in 2008 that
he had worked on the Bill Clinton
transition team 1992-3

It is far from clear what Carter Page is, other than an “international man of mystery” – possibly implying the farcical tone of Austin Powers. (snip) a 2008 listing of speakers to be heard at the “Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program in New York City,” which reproduced his claim to be an Clinton insider: Carter Page previously worked with the Clinton Administration transition team in 1992-1993 while serving as a Research Fellow on the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) on Capitol Hill. During his Fellowship, HASC Chairman Les Aspin was selected by President Clinton as the Secretary of Defense in

Not nice to have one’s slightly padded resume put out there for ridicule.

Mr Lifson I generally respect your outlook and opinion, but I believe you may have jumped the shark. To believe that a first class midshipman who is a Trident scholar from the Naval Academy had any influence on anything with Sec Def, the pentagon or the Clinton transition team defies common sense. He may have been on the building ,but that is about it.

I don´t think Page "´volunteered´ with the Trump transition team", since he reportedly left the Trump _campaign_ in August.

No doubt he was and is a guy out there trying to gain the influential contacts necessary to make as much money as possible through international business opportunities that he hoped would come his way. That does not insinuate or mean that he became a Russian spy.

Well, I do know one thing.

He was the one of the cogs that the Deep State Coup Police State Plotters used the powers of the US government and intelligence services to deny him and others caught up in their surveillance scheme their 4th Amendments rights.

We still have not dealt with the hundreds of unmasking requests from Ms. Rice, Mr. Rhoades, Ms. Power, and countless others had during the last year of the Obama Regime.

I suspect that the Carter Page spying is the tip of an iceberg that would make the one the Titanic hit look like a couple ice cubes in a martini.

Look how the liberal drug culture

In normal circumstances, Eureka, California, would be a paradise. It´s situated in northern California on the Pacific Coast and is simply beautiful, sandwiched between rugged redwood forests and an implacable open sea. The weather is perfect, constantly between 50 and 75 degrees year round. It´s isolated from other major cities, but some find value in the quiet of a more secluded lifestyle. Unfortunately, Eureka, in Humboldt County, is in the center of a narco-state where marijuana is grown industrial-scale and drug use is rampant. The situation has gotten so bad that even tourists avoid it. Here´s one telling review from

The end result of indoctrination in government schools and mass media that teaches “urban youths” that American society is racist, corrupt, unfair, and unworthy of compliance is the crumbling of civil order. When a substantial group of young males (the segment of society most prone to acting out with violence) think that they have no stake in the continuation of existing social and property relations, they are able to impose anarchy in local areas. When enough people think and feel this way, the forces of order – police, and in extremis the National Guard – can be overwhelmed and powerless

The unspoken key to Trump’s Iran policy

I can almost hear the disapproving “Shush!” coming my way. Nobody wants to openly discuss what clearly lies ahead as President Trump’s strategy for dealing with Iran: a revolution overthrowing the mullahs. Identifying a revolution as a tool of American policy would generate nationalistic opposition and perhaps reinforce the mullahs, so the thinking goes. (snip) The committed islamists who staff the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), and who benefit from corruption, kept the demonstrators in check in 2009 are the key to the regime’s survival now. Yet these loyalists are also needed to staff Iran’s

President Trump famously warned us during the campaign that we may not be able to handle all the winning. But I am already running into a related non-problem: so much schadenfreude over the disgrace and resignation of New York AG Eric Schneiderman that I am overwhelmed with shameful joy in the richly deserved reckoning for an uber-hypocrite. Best of all, two separate groups are deeply compromised: abortion-worshiping feminists and the get Trump cabal.

Comedy Central´s 2011 Trump Roast

In March 2011, the cable channel Comedy Central staged a celebrity roast of Donald Trump. Hosted by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, the show featured a crew of B- and C-list entertainers mocking each other and, of course, Trump, the subject of the roast. What stands out seven years later is how the Democratic-media complex (DMC) seems to have erased its past and changed its standards for no greater purpose than to make Trump´s occasionally crude behavior seem aberrant, if not downright un-American. (snip) Nothing Trump has ever said or done, however, measures up to the relentless vulgarity on seemingly hilarious

The winds of the special counsel are blowing hard. A big tempest is brewing, and it´s not clear what is happening. (snip) Too much is known about what the leftist cabal has done. Too much factual information on their ugly, evil intent is out there. Too many of their top soldiers are gone or neutered. Clinton has no power. Obama has no power. Their surrogates have been outed.

Busted! FBI/DOJ caught using redactions
of House Intell Committee Report
to protect their posteriors
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 5/5/2018 8:02:32     Post Reply
The release of a less-redacted version of the House Intelligence Committee Report on Russian active measures (aka, “collusion”) has exposed abuse of the redaction process to protect the bureaucrats at the FBI and Department of Justice. In theory, redacting of official documents prior to public release is supposed to be solely to protect confidential sources, or protect ongoing prosecutions, or otherwise serve legitimate government interests. Redactions to prevent embarrassment or potentially illegal activities on the part of federal officials is not legitimate. Yet, that is clearly what happened when the House Intelligence Committee report was first redacted by the DOJ

Andrew Carnegie made billions in steel, sold his business, and switched to philanthropy. He built 2,500 libraries, at least. In his 1889 essay The Gospel of Wealth, he said that "the rich have a moral obligation to distribute their money in ways that promote the welfare and happiness of the common man." Where are the people who feel like that today? Here´s the first step they would take. They would ensure that all kids in our public schools learn to read in the first grade. Then those children could go to Carnegie´s libraries and enjoy the books. We have to ask:

It is staggering to witness the Justice Department go off the rails and barrel toward a showdown with our president over innuendo and manufactured misdeeds. From the beginning of the special counsel appointment and despite Jeff Sessions´s recusal, I felt confident that Trump and Sessions had a behind-the-scenes plan to navigate this quagmire. (snip) There´s too much information to cover all the DOJ corruption that is in the public domain at this point. Does none of this compel the attorney general of the United States to take action? Wasn´t his recusal expressly for Russia-Trump campaign collusion before the election? So

The Democrats’ long knives are going to be unsheathed on Hillary Clinton’s back even sooner than I anticipated. Driven mad by the crash and burn of her “inevitable” presidency dream, she continues to come up with excuses that avoid the real reason: her personal repulsiveness. Yesterday, in the latest installment of her “it’s not my fault I lost” speaking tour, she revealed embarrassing truth about her party.

My first take on seeing the live broadcast of Michelle Wolf’s comic speech at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner at the Washington Hilton last Saturday was revulsion and disgust. Like many conservatives, I felt like this was the intolerable last straw of an elitist left wing mainstream media gone bonkers. (snip) I noticed that – other than the unedited live broadcast of the dinner – subsequent news reports used clips of what Wolf said that were all edited, censored, or bleeped, making a serious evaluation impossible. I located a transcript online of her presentation, but it was flawed.

Have you ever wondered how people of the caliber of James Comey ever rose to the lofty heights of the Department of Justice and the FBI? (snip)So how does a self-righteous pr*ck get so far in life? The answer, I am afraid, is based on the iron law of bureaucracy.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., called on the Senate to reject Gina Haspel´s nomination to become CIA director Wednesday, charging that she was unable to address concerns with her role in the use of enhanced interrogation techniques during the Bush Administration. "Today, Gina Haspel testified before the Senate and to the country about her qualifications to lead the CIA.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) wrote in his upcoming memoir that he does not regret alerting the FBI about the so-called Steele dossier, which includes allegations about President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. McCain acknowledged in January 2017 that he delivered a dossier of “sensitive information” to then-FBI Director James Comey. In his upcoming book, "The Restless Wave," McCain wrote that he "did what duty demanded I do" in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain said, according to excerpts of the book published

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Wednesday warned the Trump administration against going easy on North Korea in talks about its nuclear program just because that country released three U.S. detainees. "We cannot forget: No regime has the right to hold American citizens in captivity without cause, and under no circumstances should American citizens be viewed as bargaining chips," Schumer said Wednesday on the Senate floor. "If countries in the world think they can detain Americans and get something in return, we´ll see many more hostages,” he said. He added that he was “rooting for” the

Former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin says hearing that Sen. John McCain now regrets choosing her as his 2008 running mate is ´like a perpetual gut-punch´ every time she hears about it. And the latest verdict from the ailing 81-year-old Arizona Republican, she said, is perplexing because McCain has told her very different things over and over in person. ´That´s not what Sen.

Noam Chomsky may not be a household name in most circles, but the philosopher and linguist has a reputation in academic and political circles for his outspoken radical left worldview. In a recent 90-minute speech at St. Olaf College (no word if Rose Nylund is an alumna), Chomsky declared that he knows the biggest threat to the world. And boy, is it a doozy! So, is the truest threat to the world North Korea? Is it Iran or ISIS? How about Russia or China? Nope. According to Chomsky, nuclear war and climate change are pretty scary, but the big threats

Democrats will lower the federal debt if they retake control of the government, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday, even as they seek to enact major infrastructure spending and other new programs while undoing the GOP tax law. “Democrats believe you must pay as you go,” the California Democrat said at an event hosted by the fiscally conservative Peter G.

Her scarf was tied high around her neck and covered the top of her navy blue jacket.

Kelly Sadler, a special assistant in the White House, is accused of mocking John McCain on Thursday. McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona, is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer. Two unnamed sources told The Hill that Sadler took issue with McCain´s criticism of President Donald Trump´s CIA nominee, Gina Haspel, allegedly dismissing the ailing McCain, saying "he´s dying anyway." McCain on Wednesday said that Haspel is unfit to run the CIA because she would not say definitively that torture is immoral. That issue is one of several that have made Haspel´s journey toward Senate confirmation an uphill battle.
