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

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

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.

More threads are unraveling in what may be the biggest political scandal in history, the use if intelligence agencies to spy on a rival party presidential campaign and then unseat a duly-elected president. The blowback from the Steele Dossier, the multi-million dollar operation of the Hillary campaign and the DNC, may reach all the way to Trump-haters in the GOP. The Steele Dossier scandal’s tentacles are reaching all the way to Trumpophobic John McCain, via a close associate of his.

Watch any cable or network news station or read the newspaper, and you will be told that President Trump is unpopular. That Americans don´t like him. The Washington Post proclaims that "Trump is historically unpopular." Predicting big trouble ahead for Republicans, the Post tells readers, "There´s never been a president who was as deeply unpopular for as long as he has been at this stage of his presidency."

The body of the Rev. Billy Graham was not even cold before the Washington Post came out with at least three hostile opinion pieces about the man as its means of remembering the man. (snip) To hear the Washington Post tell it, you´d think Graham was some kind of beast. He was a horrible father, whose time on the road evangelizing left an embittered wife and screwed up kids, according to this historian. That´s the way he should be remembered, for all the influence he exerted and all the people who said he helped them in their lives? Or this:

The new Black Panther movie may have been sold as an anti-white screed dripping with racial hostility, but those who are looking for that kind of venom in this year´s biggest biggest cinematic experience are going to disappointed. (snip) After seeing Black Panther, there is no doubt that the marketing gurus who turned Black Panther into the most talked about movie of the decade were playing us like a nation of willing and ignorant marks. Anyone who saw the trailers saw all the clues as to what they thought the movie would be about. First there was the ´60s classic from

On Tuesday evening, I was watching CNN (note to editor: my request for hardship duty pay will follow) when I observed a new low point – and considering the recent history of CNN, that’s really saying something. The program was The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer. Like all of the hosts on CNN, including news anchors, Blitzer is consistently anti-Trump so I wasn’t expecting anything close to fair and balanced. But what I saw this time was even more obnoxious and telling. As Blitzer and his talking head guests opined, a chyron on the bottom of the screen

Cries to ´Ban the AR-15´ Based
on Ignorance and Hysteria
American Thinker, by Michael Filozof    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 2/21/2018 8:19:36     Post Reply
Yet another mass shooting has taken place in America – followed by all too predictable cries to ban the AR-15 rifle. The pure ignorance of the people bleating for a ban on America´s most popular rifle is appalling. With few exceptions, most of the calls to ban the AR-15 come from liberal, urban women and metrosexual men whose knowledge of firearms comes entirely from watching Rambo movies or playing "Call of Duty." Even some in professional law enforcement know not of what they speak. A local radio station interviewed a retired FBI agent who stated that he "could not understand" why people

Not only is it hard to imagine the anger and grief the families of those killed by Nikolas Cruz are in at their Florida high school; it is impossible. (snip) Israel learned the hard way. A terrorist school shooting forty years ago took the lives of over a hundred elementary school children. Since then, any school in Israel with a hundred students or more has armed guards and staff with concealed weapons. Why do we in America value our air travelers, our congresspeople, celebrities, the employees and contents of all public buildings, museums, etc. more than we treasure our schoolchildren?

´Broward County Solution´
Cost 17 Student Lives?

"We´re not compromising school safety. We´re really saving the lives of kids," boasted Michaelle Valbrun-Pope, executive director of Student Support Initiatives for Broward County Public Schools, in August 2017. Valbrun-Pope was referring to what an article by Jeffrey Benzing in Public Source calls the "Broward County Solution." As Benzing relates, Broward County used to lead the state of Florida in sending students to the state´s juvenile justice system. County leaders responded with a perfectly progressive solution: "lower arrests by not making arrests." Authorities agreed to treat twelve different misdemeanor offenses as school-related issues, not criminal ones. The results impressed the

The effort to explain away Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump began as a propaganda operation the morning after the election results came in. So skepticism is warranted toward everything you hear from the media and even from the Mueller probe itself; it is, after all, the spawn of Hillary’s campaign-sponsored Steele Dossier and staffed by rabid partisans who donate only to Democrats. Ever since the 13 indictments were announced last Friday, exactly in time to distract public attention from the FBI’s bungling that cost 17 people their lives in Parkland, Florida, we have been hearing about “millions” of dollars spent

You know the drill because we’ve seen the same story so many times. Reports come in that scientists have discovered declining populations of a species of some sort, somewhere. Scientists study. For quite some time, they come up with no good answer. Concern grows. For maximum publicity and popular hand-wringing, it helps to be cuddly, cute, exotic, beautiful, or funny critters. But even if they are repulsive, sooner or later, global warming is blamed. Conclusion: We’re doomed! Because: Science. Apply this model to the following account drawn from West Hunter: Starting in late 80s, herpetologists began noticing that various kinds

If your hackles are not yet up concerning the outlook for highly indebted multinational companies such as GE in a possible looming crisis of 2018, they ought to be. (snip) It wasn´t "easy being green" for GE under Obama. Under Jeff Immelt from March 2009 through his departure in 2017, GE´s directors, executives, and professional advisers evidently learned little from their "near-death" experience. Perhaps Immelt should have spent less time working with President Obama and more time on his day job at GE. Early on, Immelt cheered the Obama administration´s reckless attempt to stimulate the American economy by throwing almost

Aaron Feis was the right man in the right place at the right time, but was legally prevented from using the right, constitutionally protected tool to do the job. Mr. Feis was shot on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, shielding students from a killer with his own body.

Asked in 1972 if he believed in miracles, Billy Graham answered: Yes, Jesus performed some and there are many "miracles around us today, including television and airplanes." Graham was no theologian. Neither was he a prophet. Jesus said "a prophet hath no honor in his own country." Prophets take adversarial stances toward their times, as did the 20th century´s two greatest religious leaders, Martin Luther King and Pope John Paul II. Graham did not. Partly for that reason, his country showered him with honors. So, the subtitle of Grant Wacker´s 2014 book "America´s Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation"

New York University has issued a public apology and fired their director of food service after students pointed out the watermelon-flavoured water and collard greens the school was serving during Black History Month were racially insensitive. College of Arts and Science sophomore Nia Harris noticed the offensive meal when she walked into Weinstein Passport Dining Hall - before alerting the deans of the school and NYU’s President Hamilton of the insensitive and “stereotypical” meal. In her letter, which she also shared on Facebook, Harris wrote: “It is with great sadness and frustration that I even have to send this email.”

For the past year, chief executives have often talked about the new sense of moral responsibility that corporations have to help their communities and confront social challenges even when Washington won’t. What if the finance industry — credit card companies like Visa, Mastercard and American Express; credit card processors like First Data; and banks like JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo — were to effectively set new rules for the sales of guns in America? Collectively, they have more leverage over the gun industry than any lawmaker. And it wouldn’t be hard for them to take a stand.

Billy Graham and Ruth Bell met at Wheaton College in the fall of 1940. A vivacious and feisty beauty who had grown up in China as the daughter of Presbyterian medical missionaries, Ruth was the prize catch of her class. After a first date, to a performance of Handel’s “Messiah,” Billy wrote home to announce that he had met the girl he planned to marry. Ruth described Billy as “a man that knew God in a very unusual way.” Graham died Wednesday in his home in Montreat, N.C., at the age of 99. The courtship between Billy and Ruth, though hardly

Marco Rubio is being challenged by angry students, teachers and parents who are demanding stronger gun-control measures after a shooting rampage claimed 17 lives at a Florida high school. One of those confronting Rubio at a CNN´s "Stand Up" town hall Wednesday night was Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime Guttenberg was killed on Feb. 14 with 16 others. Guttenberg told Rubio that his comments about the shooting "and those of your president this week have been pathetically weak."

School Resource Officer (SRO) Scott Peterson, the armed deputy stationed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, stood outside the building during the shooting and refused to enter the building. He listened as the kids were being shot. Today Officer Scott Peterson resigned from the Broward Sheriff’s department.

With high school students from Parkland in the Capitol this week advocating for gun control, the bill that would have allowed superintendents and principals to designate trained employees who can carry concealed weapons at school didn’t get heard as scheduled. That did not stop debate over the issue. In fact, it had a growing national audience, spurred on by President Donald Trump’s endorsement of the idea on Wednesday. "If you had a teacher who was adept at firearms, they could very well end the attack very quickly," Trump said during a White House event with students and teachers. Sen. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota,

A lawsuit against Microsoft may seem outlandish but expresses a not-uncommon user complaint. Filed earlier this month by a “Frank K. Dickman Jr.” of Albuquerque, NM., the lawsuit seeks damages of $600 million from Microsoft and its CEO Satya Nadella. The upgrade “deleted the cached, or backup, version of Windows 7,” the complaint states. “The only sensible remedy is for Microsoft to supply the OEM version of its operating system by download from its website and confirmed by the key code which came with the computer,” the filing notes. The owner is demanding that Microsoft supply the Windows 7 operating
