The Schiff Memo Harms Democrats
More Than It Helps Them

National Review, by Andrew C. McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 2/25/2018 10:14:49 PM

Maybe Adam Schiff has more of a sense of humor than I’d have given him credit for. The House Intelligence Committee’s ranking Democrat begins his long-awaited memo — the minority response to the Nunes memo that was penned by staffers of the committee’s Republican majority — by slamming Chairman Devin Nunes’s unconscionable “risk of public exposure of sensitive sources and methods for no legitimate purpose.” The Schiff memo, which has been delayed for weeks because the FBI objected to its gratuitous effort to publicize highly classified intelligence, including methods and sources, then proceeds to tell

I have a hard time believing that Schiff went to Harvard Law. I thought one had to be brilliant to go there.

I´m not a lawyer or even close to it, so reading this article kinda hurts my hair, but I persevered long enough to get to the part that I find the most interesting, and the main reason for this FISA warrant..

FTA~ " What Democrats fail to mention is that the surveillance enabled the FBI to intercept not only his forward-going communications but also any stored emails and texts he might have had. Clearly, they were hoping to find a motherlode of campaign communications. Remember, Page was merely the vehicle for surveillance; the objective was to probe Trump ties to Russia."

Think about that for a second. Page was not the issue.. was never the issue (otherwise why hasn´t he been charged with anything?), but they (the small group at the FBI/DOJ needed a ´trojan horse" to get inside the Trump Campaign so they could get not only all of Page´s emails, phone calls, texts, but everyone he came in contact with EVEN BEFORE the warrant approval date. And that goes for all of his contacts, emails, texts, and phone calls.. and their emails texts and phone calls... on and on and on.. See how it was used?

The FBI/DOJ did even so much more that will come out in the coming weeks. Heads have already rolled, but those people are facing some serious crimes. All because they never thought Hillary would lose, and no one would ever find out. Just like the email scandal. Once she did, the got desperate and resorted to desperate measures. But, it´s coming out... better get some more popcorn, folks.

#8, I don´t know about everyone else, but I´m sick of popcorn. It´s time for our DOJ to get serious about these crimes. Hopefully behind the scenes Sessions is getting to the bottom of all this, but there is more than enough evidence against the DNC, Clinton campaign, Hillary and Zero, and several FBI/DOJ officials to take these people down.

Enough of the popcorn! We need to see some action against THEM for a change.

It´s plain and simple. The Democrats´ goals and plans have nothing to do with improving the lives of Americans. They´re sole ´reason for being´ is to destroy and ridicule the current administration and violently and vehemently oppose any and all ideas (good or bad) put forth by any Republican.

the Firing of Andrew McCabe
Lawfareblog.com, by Quinta Jurecic, Benjamin Wittes    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 3/18/2018 4:37:00     Post Reply
Anyone who is confidently pronouncing on the merits of Andrew McCabe’s firing Friday night is venturing well beyond the realm of known facts. We certainly understand the instinct to rally to McCabe’s defense at a time when the president is issuing triumphant tweets and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is declaring him a “bad actor.” McCabe’s dismissal comes as part of a broader purge of the senior FBI leadership and specifically targets a man who behaved with extraordinary courage and dignity in the wake of James Comey’s firing last year. It is only natural for those repulsed by the

One of the coldest regions of the world saw some rain Thursday — a shower of silver and gold, that is. A plane carrying 9.3 tons of precious metals lost part of its cargo Thursday as it was taking off from Yakutsk Airport in Siberia, scattering treasure across the runway as it gained height. Gold bars fell out of the Nimbus Airlines Antonov AN-12 cargo plane and landed as far as 16 miles from the airport, according to the Siberian Times. The plane had been taking off after refueling at the airport when its cargo door flew open. At least 3.4 tons

President Trump is moving closer toward shaking up his administration in a big way, according to sources familiar with his thinking. The Washington Post reported Thursday night that Trump had decided to fire H.R. McMaster, his national security adviser. Shortly after the story broke, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to the Post’s reporting on Twitter: “Just spoke to @POTUS and Gen. H.R. McMaster - contrary to reports they have a good working relationship and there are no changes at the NSC.” It was, notably, not a denial of the Post story or that President Trump had decided

Kristian Saucier, the U.S. Navy sailor pardoned by President Trump Friday, harshly criticized the Obama administration during a Saturday morning interview with Fox News’ Pete Hegseth. Saucier was charged and jailed in October 2016 for taking photos onboard a nuclear submarine in 2009. He believes his case was an attempt by the Obama administration to “take the heat” off of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server at the State Department.

My husband and I managed to raise six children on a very limited income, (as I was a stay at home Mom for 15 years), sending them to private Catholic schools for twelve years. Now we enjoy watching them do the same with our 13 grandchildren. What is disheartening, however, is how today´s children are being systematically exposed to issues we parents never had to contend with raising our own decades ago. Is it liberalism or just plain evil that´s taking away the innocence of childhood? Why on earth should kindergarten curricula include lessons on gender reassignments or anything to

As she made her way into court earlier in the day, Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, 89, issued a final plea to the “Roar” hit-maker: “To Katy Perry, please stop. It’s not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people,” she told KTTV cameras. The nun dropped dead in the courthouse hours later during a post-judgement hearing.

President Trump on Tuesday endorsed the son of his former GOP primary rival Jeb Bush in a Texas political race. The president wrote in a tweet that Texas land commissioner George P. Bush “backed me when it wasn’t the politically correct thing to do, and I back him now. George P. Bush backed Trump in the 2016 general election. His father, former Florida Gov.

PARKLAND – CBS4 News has obtained new information in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre which left 17 people dead. An official briefed on the shooting investigation tells CBS4 News that the carnage could have been far worse. Investigators believe self-confessed gunman Nikolas Cruz had planned on using a vantage point on the third-floor stairwell on the west side of the building to shoot at students as they fled the building. Cruz attempted to create this sniper’s nest by shooting out the glass window in the stairwell, firing 16 rounds into the impact glass. Luckily, the hurricane proof window did not

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Monday challenging laws in 22 states and the District of Columbia that force public employees to pay unions to represent them, even if they disagree with the union’s demands and politics. Mark Janus, a child-support specialist and public employee in Illinois, claims his First Amendment free-speech rights are violated when he’s forced to pay money to a union — the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. The union “uses my monthly fees to promote an agenda I don’t support,” Janus objects.

One way to make sense of the onslaught of political corruption investigations and prosecutions in recent years is to understand it as our legal system trying to draw the line between political misbehavior that is merely shady and that which is outright criminal. Instead of looking at each of these cases in isolation, it makes more sense to see them as a pattern — and one that should provide some at least limited reassurance to President Trump, Prime Minister Netanyahu, and their supporters. Begin with the Republican governor of Virginia, Robert McDonnell. He and his wife were indicted on federal

LOS ANGELES — The Weinstein Company said that it would file for bankruptcy following the collapse of sale talks with an investor group, extending the damage from sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein, its co-owner and a onetime force in Hollywood. The beleaguered film and television studio said in a statement late Sunday that it had failed to reach a deal with a group led by Maria Contreras-Sweet, who ran the Small Business Administration under President Barack Obama. The group had offered to pay roughly $275 million for the Weinstein Company, plus the assumption of $225 million in debt. “While we recognize

“Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff ended an interview on Australian TV after being asked about his now-retracted claim that President Donald Trump has had an affair in the White House. Wolff, who was interviewed from London for Australia’s morning talk show “Today,” walked off the set after claiming that he was unable to hear questions about his allegations that Trump is having an affair. But evidence emerged that the journalist was perfectly able to hear the questions, which were posed by host Ben Fordham. Footage from “Today’s” London studio showed that Fordham’s questions could be heard in Wolff’s earpiece.

Friday´s firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history. Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General´s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates." From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in

First there was the casual sexism: the reason white women didn’t back her when she ran for president, Hillary Clinton believes, is “a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.” Have you noticed that her sneering always seems to take the same form? She’s become the queen of the contemptuous listicle that tails off into a snarling “whatever.” Remember the formulation in the speech where she came up with the term “basket of deplorables?” “You could put half of Trump´s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Hillary said.

McCabe´s employment was terminated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions less than 48 hours before he would have qualified for his pension, a day that was also his 50th birthday. Rep.

Armed sheriff´s deputies appeared on the scene of the recent school massacre in Florida while kids were still being murdered inside. But the deputies failed to storm the building to apprehend the killer, to rescue the assaulted, to stop the bleeding and to comfort the dying. They failed to do their jobs. Instead, they cowered behind their patrol cars waiting for, well, apparently waiting for the shooting to stop. Some 150 bullets and 17 lives later, it finally did and the killer walked away. Only then did the deputies enter the building. About that, President Donald Trump characteristically said what he thought. He

As free agency kicked off the start of a new football season, the NFL sent a clear message to anyone paying attention: Colin Kaepernick, you´re still not wanted. Probably not ever. Oh, and while we´re at it, it´s pretty clear the owners have every intention of clamping down on any other players who tries to carry on Kaepernick´s legacy. Rattled by another big dip in the television ratings and an increasing number of empty seats, the league seems determined to banish peaceful protest from the playing field. While it´s quite a stretch to say those trends are intimately related —
