    The House Intelligence Committee Memo on possible FBI and Justice Department malfeasance relating mostly to the investigation of Donald Trump associate Carter Page is in some ways a bewildering document. As a former intelligence officer, the first thing I noticed was that the claim by Democrats on the Committee that the memo’s release amounted to...
  • @Ronald Thomas West
    Yep, it's interesting how Brennan has been dropped from the entire narrative. I think Wilkerson is close to the mark but in any case, it seems we'll never see a much deserved, deep scrutiny of Mueller, Comey and Wray's DoJ days, prior to their becoming FBI heads. These 'three amigos' all tie to criminal coverup at DoJ in their own right previous to the present narrative holding the Russians are responsible for everything gone wrong on the liberal democracies planet:

    Anyone else recall there exists CIA connected 'Never Trump!' Republicans, and this was never just a Democratic lynch mob?

    “Anyone else recall there exists CIA connected ‘Never Trump!’ Republicans, and this was never just a Democratic lynch mob?”

    Apparently, few in the Trumpeteer camp recall any such thing. In Congress, there really are no dividing lines between the “two parties” except among freshmen in the House. Senators are all wallowing around together, swapping spit and stroking each other’s pet causes. If one Senator gets infected, they all get the same fever at the same time.

    Whatever comes out of a vote in the Senate (and the same applies to the House), you can be sure that the result was agreed upon in advance.

    Is there a comment-cease fire moratorium underway of which I am unaware?
     
    Hey, Chuck. No moratorium that I'm aware of... just waiting for the right development to share with others.

    And I didn't have to wait long. Not sure if you know this, but congressional candidate from Wisconsin, Paul Nehlen, was just banned from Twitter.

    Here is a statement he released soon afterward:

    Nehlen campaign: Statement on unlawful election interference by Twitter, the Anti-Defamation League, and foreign persons and entities

    Contact: Josh Smith, Esq., Campaign Spokesman (@EmericaFirst)

    Yesterday, Twitter banned me from its platform. I am the second GOP congressional candidate within one month to be banned for lawful speech from a major social media platform, which a majority of the U.S. Supreme Court recently acknowledged to be the new de facto public square.

    This is the epitome of interfering with a federal election. Twitter is largely foreign-owned, and has partnered with the ADL — a pro-censorship extremist organization — to suppress right-wing political speech. In addition, we have reason to believe that, because of the content of one of my recent controversial tweets, the British government may also be involved in this unlawful election interference, by demanding Twitter suspend my account pursuant to its Orwellian “hate speech” laws. We will be filing a complaint with the Federal Election Commission in the coming days, alleging violations by the aforementioned parties of federal election laws and regulations.

    These are unprecedented, brazen acts of censorship by a corporate monopoly that controls a primary channel of public communication. It has severely compromised the integrity of our election processes, and Congress needs to hold public hearings and conduct a full investigation into these matters without delay. This communist-style speech control absolutely cannot be tolerated in an open and democratic society.

    Paul Nehlen is a turnaround specialist, business executive, and inventor who started on the factory floor, who, with God’s grace and some determination, rose to lead Fortune 500 manufacturing businesses around the world. Nehlen challenged Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 2016 First Congressional District to stop Trans-Pacific Partnership and secure America’s border. He is waging the battle for Wisconsin’s workers, against the refugee resettlement racket, and lends his voice to the battle for America’s values.

    Now, what is the first thought that comes to mind when you learn about this story? I don't know about you, but for me it was the heartwarming march in the streets of Paris after the killing spree took place at the Charlie Hebdo offices. With world leaders, locked arm-in-arm, at the front of the parade, everyone was chanting Ju Suis Charlie in defiance of those who killed the cartoonists who were so committed to the principle of freedom of speech, they were prepared to put their life on the line to publish cartoons that insulted the Prophet Muhammad.

    And we didn't have to wait long for them to demonstrate the depth of their sincerity. Why as soon as Paul Nehlen tested the freedom of speech boundaries by publishing a few controversial tweets, rather than leading a parade down Times Square with chants of Je Suis Paul, it took a New York minute for the ADL to shut him down.

    Isn't it obvious that the ADL believes freedom of speech is as vital to the strength of America as diversity is?

    Thanks, Geo. This is big news, indeed.

    “what is the first thought that comes to mind ….”

    For me, it’s how MeetUp has underwritten #Resist’s network to try to destroy our legally sitting President.
    Meanwhile, MeetUp refused to accept payment to host Cynthia McKinney’s #UNRIG, a project to enable independent and 3rd party candidates to compete — which has been reconfigured after almost abandoned, due in part to this corporate obstruction.

    Brennanonastick said: "Several junior congresspersons are alert and ambitious enough to smell CIA blood in the water, and make their name."

    Hi Brennanonastick,

    Re; above, Interesting comment, but there is a flip side.

    High level (entrenched) CIA-sharks likely monitor the activities of "ambitious junior congresspersons," and the latter group likely prefer their blood to NOT appear "in the water" and expel attractive malodor.

Twitter is largely foreign-owned, and has partnered with the ADL — a pro-censorship extremist organization — to suppress right-wing political speech. In addition, we have reason to believe that, because of the content of one of my recent controversial tweets, the British government may also be involved in this unlawful election interference, by demanding Twitter suspend my account pursuant to its Orwellian “hate speech” laws. We will be filing a complaint with the Federal Election Commission in the coming days, alleging violations by the aforementioned parties of federal election laws and regulations.

    These are unprecedented, brazen acts of censorship by a corporate monopoly that controls a primary channel of public communication. It has severely compromised the integrity of our election processes, and Congress needs to hold public hearings and conduct a full investigation into these matters without delay. This communist-style speech control absolutely cannot be tolerated in an open and democratic society.

    Paul Nehlen is a turnaround specialist, business executive, and inventor who started on the factory floor, who, with God’s grace and some determination, rose to lead Fortune 500 manufacturing businesses around the world. Nehlen challenged Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 2016 First Congressional District to stop Trans-Pacific Partnership and secure America’s border. He is waging the battle for Wisconsin’s workers, against the refugee resettlement racket, and lends his voice to the battle for America’s values.

    Now, what is the first thought that comes to mind when you learn about this story? I don’t know about you, but for me it was the heartwarming march in the streets of Paris after the killing spree took place at the Charlie Hebdo offices. With world leaders, locked arm-in-arm, at the front of the parade, everyone was chanting Ju Suis Charlie in defiance of those who killed the cartoonists who were so committed to the principle of freedom of speech, they were prepared to put their life on the line to publish cartoons that insulted the Prophet Muhammad.

    And we didn’t have to wait long for them to demonstrate the depth of their sincerity. Why as soon as Paul Nehlen tested the freedom of speech boundaries by publishing a few controversial tweets, rather than leading a parade down Times Square with chants of Je Suis Paul, it took a New York minute for the ADL to shut him down.

    Isn’t it obvious that the ADL believes freedom of speech is as vital to the strength of America as diversity is?

    For me, it's how MeetUp has underwritten #Resist's network to try to destroy our legally sitting President.
    Meanwhile, MeetUp refused to accept payment to host Cynthia McKinney's #UNRIG, a project to enable independent and 3rd party candidates to compete -- which has been reconfigured after almost abandoned, due in part to this corporate obstruction.

    The United States has dismissed as false an Israeli assertion that the two countries were discussing the possibility of Israel annexing Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, in a rare display of discord between US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    A President Held Hostage

    https://original.antiwar.com/justin/2018/02/11/president-held-hostage/

    As Vice President Mike Pence made a fool both of himself and the country he is supposed to be representing at the Olympic Games by refusing to stand for the athletes of any nation other than the US, back at home the Washington Post was reporting on a President Trump who appears to have nothing in common either with Pence or with the White House staff. The piece, entitled “Trump’s favorite general: Can Mattis check an impulsive president and still retain his trust?” tells a story that pits a President inclined to challenge the War Party against a Praetorian Guard determined to nullify his electoral mandate to keep out of foreign wars and put “America first”

    * * *

    The War Party cannot tolerate a President who questions the most basic premises of the American Empire: “You guys want me to send troops everywhere!” Of course they do. However, Trump was elected to carry out a very different mandate: to start putting America first. He railed against regime change. And now the regime-changers want to carry out a change of regime against him.</

    Apparently, few in the Trumpeteer camp recall any such thing. In Congress, there really are no dividing lines between the "two parties" except among freshmen in the House. Senators are all wallowing around together, swapping spit and stroking each other's pet causes. If one Senator gets infected, they all get the same fever at the same time.

    Whatever comes out of a vote in the Senate (and the same applies to the House), you can be sure that the result was agreed upon in advance.

    Another excellent article by Giraldi. He is truly an American shining light in a media darkness.

    "it would certainly disappoint the many American talking heads and media “experts”"

    Yes, but I would say that it has done more, much more, damage to America's confidence and understanding of the news media and the government. While I.F. Stone correctly said "All governments lie", we now have irrefutable evidence that not only do they lie but the government is corrupt, probably beyond redemption because any further disclosure "would damage national security".

    The real “collusion” that no investigator will touch because of the “anti-semitic” taboo factor, is Trump’s jewish son-in-law’s collusion with Israel. It was verified that after conferring with Israel’s Netanyahu, Kushner told Flynn to call all the UN Security Council countries’ ambassadors and ask them to delay or block the UN vote condemning the illegal israeli “settlements” until after Trump took office. Draining the swamp starts with “senior adviser” Jews Jared and Ivanka Kushner and Stephen Miller (Trump’s speech writer and co-author of the “Muslim ban”).

    @Twoddees, Schlesinger was a indeed a rara avis. Nowadays Trump would not find such a guy at RAND, but far outside CIA's ambit. Think Grayson.

    On information and belief Graham is securely blackmailed by film festivals of acrofappic videos with comely youths, and Grassley just doesn't want to shoot himself twice in the head. CIA positions its two pawns to make their coup look like party politics.

    The real fun will start when competent foreign intelligence services weigh in. CIA impunity is a problem for the world to solve. The international community was also the prime mover in Schlesinger's day. As always, the US public is the last to know.

    My thought is that Trump wouldn’t even look past the circle his handlers allowed near him. His picks are all disappointing to me, anyway. Good observations on Grassley and Graham. They do have the excuse, being Senators, that they can’t reveal anything much without the permission of the agencies involved, so they can stir the waters a little without having to expose themselves to any real pushback.

  • @chuck, absolutely true. The US is not a free country. And that has been the case ever since 1949, when the Central Intelligence Agency Act gave CIA impunity in municipal law. Remarkably, international pressure has forced the US to ratify some key covenants, including even the CAT, which was drafted in response to CIA torture in Indochina and Latin America. When CIA permits treaty ratification, it then tries to negate it with its moles in State and Justice, using legally void tricks in so-called ratification packages: laughingstock ‘provisos,’ reservations in breach of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties that would undermine the treaty, bad-faith understandings, and the old ‘non self-executing’ buck-passing trick. Once the US is legally bound by the treaty, the treaty bodies gradually tighten the vise on the US government’s nuts. In consequence, the treaty bodies have forced more reforms than any US elections.

    Your fair question: Who? Everybody. Italy indicted a couple dozen torturers. Spain’s Court 6 chewed on the Bush Six for years despite CIA pulling every string it had. Look up Robert Lady, who forfeited his Hannibal Lecter villa and gets locked up and sprung with some regularity. Or Sabrina DeSouza, convicted, performing community service, singing like a canary. GW Bush himself got chased home from Switzerland by a speech by MP Dominique Baettig and criminal complaints lodged in Geneva. With universal-jurisdiction crimes, everybody can get into the act.

    With all due respect to Mr. Giraldi, I believe he fails on two points:
    1) It doesn't matter whether the dossier was a primary reason for the the FISA warrant. It was used as part of the evidence. It does not approach plausible deniability, that those filing the application could have failed to mention Steele was paid to provide the dossier, and then use a newspaper article to justify the credibility of the dossier. As a legal principal, if part of the evidence presented by a witness (FBI) is false, all of the evidence must be considered false. No judge worth his salt would have allowed the FISA application had the FBI declared that the DNC had paid Steele to produce the document.
    2) There is absolutely no possibility of corroborating Steele's "Russian sources", and there is no evidence that Steele actually had any "sources" other than his imagination. If Steele's sources were real, does anyone believe they would tell Steel about a plot with Trump? If Steele's sources were real, there would have be a lot of Russian agents "disappeared" in Moscow for disclosing the plot.

    There is absolutely no possibility of corroborating Steele’s “Russian sources”, and there is no evidence that Steele actually had any “sources” other than his imagination.

    I can tell you one thing 100% sure–Steele never had and doesn’t have any credible “sources” in post 2008 Russia, let alone Russian “government”. Most of this bogus “dossier”, if it has any so called “Russian” sources, is from the same “sources” which pass in the US as “Russian” experts–that is uber-liberal, grossly Russophobic, primarily Soviet/Russian Jewish and oligarchy connected immigration. Fugitive oligarchs, other fringe elements, you name it. Now that some other, purely human, details begin to emerge about Steele, it becomes clear that his ambitions grossly outweighed his professional skills. As it is often the case PR and perceptions won over substance.

In "Eyes on Havana", Verne does it in spades. The information he provides shows, in first-person detail, the shocking manner and consequences of his CIA recruitment. An aerospace engineer, Verne was blackmailed into working for the Agency, and, when he tried to resign, was twice kidnapped, jailed after a kangaroo court trial, and forced to divorce his wife and family in Cuba.

    The Trump administration can now dispatch a Jim Schlesinger of his own to extract and publish updated family jewels from CIA, to include universal-jurisdiction crimes for prosecution or extradition. (Trump needs a Schlesinger for that, not a moron like Pompeo.)

    Congress can now convene a House or Senate Committee on CIA Impunity. Several junior congresspersons are alert and ambitious enough to smell CIA blood in the water, and make their name.

    This may be America's last chance to excise and destroy the CIA cancer that has been metastasizing since 1947.

    Re; above, Interesting comment, but there is a flip side.

    High level (entrenched) CIA-sharks likely monitor the activities of “ambitious junior congresspersons,” and the latter group likely prefer their blood to NOT appear “in the water” and expel attractive malodor.

    Is there a comment-cease fire moratorium underway of which I am unaware?
     
    Hey, Chuck. No moratorium that I'm aware of... just waiting for the right development to share with others.

    And I didn't have to wait long. Not sure if you know this, but congressional candidate from Wisconsin, Paul Nehlen, was just banned from Twitter.

    Here is a statement he released soon afterward:

    Nehlen campaign: Statement on unlawful election interference by Twitter, the Anti-Defamation League, and foreign persons and entities

    Contact: Josh Smith, Esq., Campaign Spokesman (@EmericaFirst)

    Yesterday, Twitter banned me from its platform. I am the second GOP congressional candidate within one month to be banned for lawful speech from a major social media platform, which a majority of the U.S. Supreme Court recently acknowledged to be the new de facto public square.

    This is the epitome of interfering with a federal election. Twitter is largely foreign-owned, and has partnered with the ADL — a pro-censorship extremist organization — to suppress right-wing political speech. In addition, we have reason to believe that, because of the content of one of my recent controversial tweets, the British government may also be involved in this unlawful election interference, by demanding Twitter suspend my account pursuant to its Orwellian “hate speech” laws. We will be filing a complaint with the Federal Election Commission in the coming days, alleging violations by the aforementioned parties of federal election laws and regulations.

    These are unprecedented, brazen acts of censorship by a corporate monopoly that controls a primary channel of public communication. It has severely compromised the integrity of our election processes, and Congress needs to hold public hearings and conduct a full investigation into these matters without delay. This communist-style speech control absolutely cannot be tolerated in an open and democratic society.

    Paul Nehlen is a turnaround specialist, business executive, and inventor who started on the factory floor, who, with God’s grace and some determination, rose to lead Fortune 500 manufacturing businesses around the world. Nehlen challenged Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 2016 First Congressional District to stop Trans-Pacific Partnership and secure America’s border. He is waging the battle for Wisconsin’s workers, against the refugee resettlement racket, and lends his voice to the battle for America’s values.

    Now, what is the first thought that comes to mind when you learn about this story? I don't know about you, but for me it was the heartwarming march in the streets of Paris after the killing spree took place at the Charlie Hebdo offices. With world leaders, locked arm-in-arm, at the front of the parade, everyone was chanting Ju Suis Charlie in defiance of those who killed the cartoonists who were so committed to the principle of freedom of speech, they were prepared to put their life on the line to publish cartoons that insulted the Prophet Muhammad.

    And we didn't have to wait long for them to demonstrate the depth of their sincerity. Why as soon as Paul Nehlen tested the freedom of speech boundaries by publishing a few controversial tweets, rather than leading a parade down Times Square with chants of Je Suis Paul, it took a New York minute for the ADL to shut him down.

    Isn't it obvious that the ADL believes freedom of speech is as vital to the strength of America as diversity is?

  • @Twoddees, Schlesinger was a indeed a rara avis. Nowadays Trump would not find such a guy at RAND, but far outside CIA’s ambit. Think Grayson.

    On information and belief Graham is securely blackmailed by film festivals of acrofappic videos with comely youths, and Grassley just doesn’t want to shoot himself twice in the head. CIA positions its two pawns to make their coup look like party politics.

    The real fun will start when competent foreign intelligence services weigh in. CIA impunity is a problem for the world to solve. The international community was also the prime mover in Schlesinger’s day. As always, the US public is the last to know.

    My thought is that Trump wouldn't even look past the circle his handlers allowed near him. His picks are all disappointing to me, anyway. Good observations on Grassley and Graham. They do have the excuse, being Senators, that they can't reveal anything much without the permission of the agencies involved, so they can stir the waters a little without having to expose themselves to any real pushback.

    A CIA director such as Schlesinger would only be available to a long term swamp creature president, which Trump clearly is not. Trump has surrounded himself with those available to him and those who were foisted upon him by some of those he chose.

    The link you provided is clarifying in several areas. One thing which still has me wondering is the motivation of Grassley and Graham, neither of whom I would suspect of having any real desire to do more than add obfuscation to the current mix.

    That’s a good article you linked. Thank you.

    It seems the last paragraph, which you did not include in your snippet, should be emphasized for completeness:

    "In recent days, after the letters from Al Jazeera arrived, some of the pro-Israel organizations asked Muzin to see if his assurances from the Qataris had turned out false, or if Al Jazeera was acting independently without consent from Qatar’s leaders. Muzin told them he was discussing the issue with the Qataris and didn’t think the film would be broadcast in the near future."
     
    Here is another article on the matter published today:

    https://www.richardsilverstein.com/2018/02/08/israel-lobby-pressures-qatar-kill-al-jazeera-documentary/


    "Two extraordinary events have come together to place Al Jazeera in a vise-like squeeze that may result in the death of a major TV documentary expose about the power and operations of the Israel Lobby in the U.S. The same investigative team producing this project created the remarkable four-part film, The Lobby, about the UK Israel Lobby..."

    "...The pro-Israel tabloid, Tablet, exposed the identity of the secret operative. Now that the groups know who the mole was they have a pretty good idea of what material he procured that would be in the aired show..."

    "...Muzin, who now receives $300,000 per month to lobby on Qatar’s behalf, devised a tried and true strategy from the Aipac playbook: junkets. Get leading figures in the pro-Israel community to accept all expenses paid trips to Qatar. Pull out all the stops; wine them and dine them; offer them facetime with the emir. In this way, Alan Dershowitz, Mort Klein, Mike Huckabee and Malcom Hoenlein have taken up the offer.

    Given that these very same individuals have spoken some of the harshest language regarding the Arab states and their ongoing hostility to Israel, it’s remarkable that they’re singing such a different tune. I wondered how a few 1st class plane tickets, a luxury hotel suite and a few hours with the emir could make these leopards change their spots..."

    "... Today, Haaretz published a story acknowledging that almost all of these American Jewish supplicants came to Qatar for one very special reason (there may have been others, but this one was key). They wanted the Al Jazeera documentary killed. They knew if it was aired it would make them look as shabby, venal, and crude as the UK series did. These Lobby leaders also knew they were in a tricky position. Given that they liked to think of themselves as liberal, and supporters of free speech and press, they couldn’t be seen to take an ax to the production in an overt fashion. They needed to work behind the scenes.

    That’s where Qatar’s need for new friends in its war with Saudi Arabia came in. In the Haaretz article, a number of the junket participants admitted that they brought up the documentary when they met the emir. The attendees claim that they were told privately that the program would not air. Nick Muzin, confirmed this after consulting with his Qatari collaborators..."

    "...However, AJ threw them all a curve-ball this week when it sent letters to a dozen Israel Lobby groups asking for their response to the material in the production. The high-paid executives thought they had it in the bag, when all of a sudden it looked like the cat had escaped. Matters appear to remain in limbo. All Muzin would say was that the documentary would not air “soon.”

    I know one of the key members of the team producing the documentary. I’ve asked him if he can speak about it and he’s observing total radio silence. That tells me that: either the documentary is dead and the producers have been told to clam up about it; or the documentary is on track and the AJ powers-that-be do not want anyone on the production team making any statements that might complicate the already knotty situation; or that no decision has been made and the producers have been told that anything they say could derail their project..."

    "...We should prepare for the possibility that the Lobby, powerful as it is, will find the right buttons to push with the Qataris and get the documentary cancelled. If that happens, it’s important that blame be nailed on the wall for all to see, like Martin Luther’s theses. This could be yet another lesson in the suffocating political power of the Lobby in national politics. It should provide an example of how Israel’s interests trump American values of freedom and fairness. When Israel or the Lobby come under attack nothing must stand in the way: not free speech, free press, political debate."

    UPDATE: Today, a Qatari foreign ministry spokeswoman rebutted the Haaretz reports:

    “Explaining Qatar’s position, she said: “…Qatar denies the false news about requesting the Al Jazeera Network to suspend the airing of the documentary that was produced by the latter.”

    We see this news in the context of the blockading countries’ tireless attempts to cast scepticism over Qatar’s open and progressive model of governance and to make a case for repeating their demand to shut down Al Jazeera. Shutting down Al Jazeera has been an objective of the quartet which owns dozens of media outlets but seems unable to compete with Al Jazeera, in what should be a free market of ideas. It seems like their inability to compete and gain credibility is what is driving these campaigns to defame Qatar and its various positions.”

    Oops, it doesn't seem like, from the same article:

    Last week a number of pro-Israel organizations in the United States received letters from Al Jazeera informing them that their employees would appear in the documentary.

    The film is based on the work of an undercover reporter who gained access to pro-Israel organizations in 2016 and videotaped their employees at work. The documentary is similar to one that Al Jazeera aired last year on Britain’s Israel lobby. Al Jazeera gave the organizations three weeks to reply to their quotes that will appear in the film.

    Last week’s letters caught the organizations by surprise amid rumors in recent months that Qatar’s leaders would block Al Jazeera from showing the film. Haaretz has confirmed that Qatar indeed made such an assurance months ago, but in light of the letters sent by Al Jazeera last week, it was not clear if the Qataris would adhere to it.

    snip

    Last week a Qatari delegation visited Washington as part of a strategic dialogue between Qatar and the Trump administration. Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani held an event at the American Enterprise Institute where he was asked by Haaretz about the Jewish-American leaders’ request to change Al Jazeera’s Israel coverage.

    “Regarding Al Jazeera coverage, in Qatar’s constitution it’s very clear that the government should not interfere in the media,” he replied. “But Al Jazeera also should comply with the international standards and with any code of conduct. And there are clear mechanisms if anyone is complaining about Al Jazeera coverage.”

    The foreign minister also mentioned the Ofcom ruling in favor of the network, adding that “there were some complaints been filed against Al Jazeera in the United Kingdom and it’s been proved that Al Jazeera followed the professional standards.”

    "Pulling" one's "chain" is a high Dark-Art form described long ago by the Mossad motto.

    At present Jewish Zionist (global) political power is overwhelmingly strong. Subsequently, I for one do not believe that they fear any criminally evil thing they do from coming out into the open.

    Consistently, Zionists manage to ignore and subvert "international standards." Such nation-state "loose cannon" capability is ritualistically unbridled.

    A case in point.

    In order to manage (coordinate) what becomes of Al Jazeera's sensitive "coverage" holding, secular Zionist Jews dispatch (dark) star quality Alan Dershowitz to glitter city, Abu Dhabi, a venue where police cars are gold-plated Lamborghinis.

    Please understand If there's anyone in America highly aware of getting their "chain pulled," it's Phil Giraldi?

    To reiterate, elite Zionist Jews delight in getting caught in the act of doing something criminal, and then they rub shit into dumb goyim eyes.

    Unaccountable, they have no fear of publically suppressing evidence of US-based Jewish Lobby shennanigans... because THEY COULD.

    Philip Giraldi: "The Qataris have figured out who runs things in Washington…"
     
    Oops, it doesn't seem like, from the same article:

    Last week a number of pro-Israel organizations in the United States received letters from Al Jazeera informing them that their employees would appear in the documentary.

    The film is based on the work of an undercover reporter who gained access to pro-Israel organizations in 2016 and videotaped their employees at work. The documentary is similar to one that Al Jazeera aired last year on Britain’s Israel lobby. Al Jazeera gave the organizations three weeks to reply to their quotes that will appear in the film.

    Last week’s letters caught the organizations by surprise amid rumors in recent months that Qatar’s leaders would block Al Jazeera from showing the film. Haaretz has confirmed that Qatar indeed made such an assurance months ago, but in light of the letters sent by Al Jazeera last week, it was not clear if the Qataris would adhere to it.

    snip

    Last week a Qatari delegation visited Washington as part of a strategic dialogue between Qatar and the Trump administration. Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani held an event at the American Enterprise Institute where he was asked by Haaretz about the Jewish-American leaders’ request to change Al Jazeera’s Israel coverage.

    “Regarding Al Jazeera coverage, in Qatar’s constitution it’s very clear that the government should not interfere in the media,” he replied. “But Al Jazeera also should comply with the international standards and with any code of conduct. And there are clear mechanisms if anyone is complaining about Al Jazeera coverage.”

    The foreign minister also mentioned the Ofcom ruling in favor of the network, adding that “there were some complaints been filed against Al Jazeera in the United Kingdom and it’s been proved that Al Jazeera followed the professional standards.”

    Thank you, Dan Herman! There will obviously be a last minute scramble, if not to prevent entirely, at least to suppress viewership. Will it have to be ‘leaked’ underground? Let’s hope Al Jazeera has footage as revealing as what they caught in Britain.

    Dan Herman opined: "It appears Mr. Giraldi, hobo is pulling your chain…"

    Hi Dan Herman,

    Not so fast.

    "Pulling" one's "chain" is a high Dark-Art form described long ago by the Mossad motto.

    At present Jewish Zionist (global) political power is overwhelmingly strong. Subsequently, I for one do not believe that they fear any criminally evil thing they do from coming out into the open.

    Consistently, Zionists manage to ignore and subvert "international standards." Such nation-state "loose cannon" capability is ritualistically unbridled.

    A case in point.

    In order to manage (coordinate) what becomes of Al Jazeera's sensitive "coverage" holding, secular Zionist Jews dispatch (dark) star quality Alan Dershowitz to glitter city, Abu Dhabi, a venue where police cars are gold-plated Lamborghinis.

    Please understand If there's anyone in America highly aware of getting their "chain pulled," it's Phil Giraldi?

    To reiterate, elite Zionist Jews delight in getting caught in the act of doing something criminal, and then they rub shit into dumb goyim eyes.

    Unaccountable, they have no fear of publically suppressing evidence of US-based Jewish Lobby shennanigans... because THEY COULD.

    Selah The Little Tel Aviv Engine That Could.

    It seems the last paragraph, which you did not include in your snippet, should be emphasized for completeness:

    "In recent days, after the letters from Al Jazeera arrived, some of the pro-Israel organizations asked Muzin to see if his assurances from the Qataris had turned out false, or if Al Jazeera was acting independently without consent from Qatar’s leaders. Muzin told them he was discussing the issue with the Qataris and didn’t think the film would be broadcast in the near future."
     
    Here is another article on the matter published today:

    https://www.richardsilverstein.com/2018/02/08/israel-lobby-pressures-qatar-kill-al-jazeera-documentary/


    "Two extraordinary events have come together to place Al Jazeera in a vise-like squeeze that may result in the death of a major TV documentary expose about the power and operations of the Israel Lobby in the U.S. The same investigative team producing this project created the remarkable four-part film, The Lobby, about the UK Israel Lobby..."

    "...The pro-Israel tabloid, Tablet, exposed the identity of the secret operative. Now that the groups know who the mole was they have a pretty good idea of what material he procured that would be in the aired show..."

    "...Muzin, who now receives $300,000 per month to lobby on Qatar’s behalf, devised a tried and true strategy from the Aipac playbook: junkets. Get leading figures in the pro-Israel community to accept all expenses paid trips to Qatar. Pull out all the stops; wine them and dine them; offer them facetime with the emir. In this way, Alan Dershowitz, Mort Klein, Mike Huckabee and Malcom Hoenlein have taken up the offer.

    Given that these very same individuals have spoken some of the harshest language regarding the Arab states and their ongoing hostility to Israel, it’s remarkable that they’re singing such a different tune. I wondered how a few 1st class plane tickets, a luxury hotel suite and a few hours with the emir could make these leopards change their spots..."

    "... Today, Haaretz published a story acknowledging that almost all of these American Jewish supplicants came to Qatar for one very special reason (there may have been others, but this one was key). They wanted the Al Jazeera documentary killed. They knew if it was aired it would make them look as shabby, venal, and crude as the UK series did. These Lobby leaders also knew they were in a tricky position. Given that they liked to think of themselves as liberal, and supporters of free speech and press, they couldn’t be seen to take an ax to the production in an overt fashion. They needed to work behind the scenes.

    That’s where Qatar’s need for new friends in its war with Saudi Arabia came in. In the Haaretz article, a number of the junket participants admitted that they brought up the documentary when they met the emir. The attendees claim that they were told privately that the program would not air. Nick Muzin, confirmed this after consulting with his Qatari collaborators..."

    "...However, AJ threw them all a curve-ball this week when it sent letters to a dozen Israel Lobby groups asking for their response to the material in the production. The high-paid executives thought they had it in the bag, when all of a sudden it looked like the cat had escaped. Matters appear to remain in limbo. All Muzin would say was that the documentary would not air “soon.”

    I know one of the key members of the team producing the documentary. I’ve asked him if he can speak about it and he’s observing total radio silence. That tells me that: either the documentary is dead and the producers have been told to clam up about it; or the documentary is on track and the AJ powers-that-be do not want anyone on the production team making any statements that might complicate the already knotty situation; or that no decision has been made and the producers have been told that anything they say could derail their project..."

    "...We should prepare for the possibility that the Lobby, powerful as it is, will find the right buttons to push with the Qataris and get the documentary cancelled. If that happens, it’s important that blame be nailed on the wall for all to see, like Martin Luther’s theses. This could be yet another lesson in the suffocating political power of the Lobby in national politics. It should provide an example of how Israel’s interests trump American values of freedom and fairness. When Israel or the Lobby come under attack nothing must stand in the way: not free speech, free press, political debate."
     

    BTW: Thank you Philip Giraldi -- a true American Hero -- for standing up for what is righteous; We salute you!

    Economic targets aside, as mentioned above, Russia has many international scores to settle with America; and perhaps none is worse than the humiliation that the Kissinger shuttle diplomacy has brought upon the USSR and which eventually turned the so-called peace process between Arabs and Israel into a charade in which America alone dictates the rule of the game without any role at all left for the USSR to play.

    The rules of this game were set to change on the 28th of September 2015, when Russian bombers conducted their first raid on ISIS targets within Syria. That said, as Russia re-entered the role of a major global power, not to say a super power, it became incumbent on Russian leadership to play the role of international mediator and arbitrator.

    The only basis for my calling Donald Trump "stupid" would be his ego & unnecessary agreement to become ZUS president, and foolishly vow to "Make" a deliberately vanquished nation "Great Again" by egging on a nuclear war designed to end all hope for a just world peace.

    Actually, the story should begin with certain Jacob Schiff who had financed the Russo-Japanses war of 1904/1905 (he even was rewarded by the Japanese for his generosity) and who paid to agitate the Russian POW in Japan. Jacob Schiff, a wealthy American financier, had invested $20 million dollars (enormous sum by the time) to the Bolshevik Revolution (Trotsky was his special protégé). https://jewishracism.blogspot.com/2008/01/genocidal-jewish-supremacist-jacob-h.html
    “An authority on Russian affairs, George Kennan, told of how a movement by the Society of the Friends of Russian Freedom, financed by Jacob H. Schiff, had at the time of the Russo-Japanese war spread among 50,000 Russian officers and men in Japanese prison camps the gospel of the Russian revolutionists"
    The Maccabean of London wrote in an article entitled "A Jewish Revolution:” "The revolution in Russia is a Jewish revolution, a crisis in Jewish history. … But the revolution in Russia is a Jewish revolution also because Jews are the most active revolutionists in the Tsar's empire.”
    “Jacob Schiff's "philanthropy" ultimately cost the lives of tens of millions of Russians and subjected hundreds of millions more to Jewish repression which has yet to subside.”

    http://www.wildboar.net/multilingual/easterneuropean/russian/literature/articles/whofinanced/whofinancedleninandtrotsky.html
    “In the February 3, 1949 issue of the New York Journal American Schiff's grandson, John, was quoted by columnist Cholly Knickerbocker as saying that his grandfather had given about $20 million for the triumph of Communism in Russia… In Russia prior to and during the revolution there were many local observers, tourists and newsmen, who reported, that British and American agents were everywhere, particularly in Petrograd, providing money for insurrection.”

    Hi Ilyana,

    Speaking respectfully, I can not agree that Tsar Nicholas was “stupid.” Internal economic breakdown, population unrest, and war was upon the last of the Romanov
    dynasty.

    As a Pennsylvanian, presently I see my country is suffering economic instability, population unrest, and is on course for a major theater war.

    On economics, Tsar Nicholas relied upon Stolypin and President Trump has Mnuchin.

    By now, (aware) Americans realize that the roots of Donald Trump’s real estate fortunes are inseparable from both US and global Jewish “family ties.”

    The only basis for my calling Donald Trump “stupid” would be his ego & unnecessary agreement to become ZUS president, and foolishly vow to “Make” a deliberately vanquished nation “Great Again” by egging on a nuclear war designed to end all hope for a just world peace.

    He had a nice vocation on TV’s “The Apprentice” and had no need to one day seek sanctuary in a Ekaturinberg / Copa Cabana.

    Actually, the story should begin with certain Jacob Schiff who had financed the Russo-Japanses war of 1904/1905 (he even was rewarded by the Japanese for his generosity) and who paid to agitate the Russian POW in Japan. Jacob Schiff, a wealthy American financier, had invested $20 million dollars (enormous sum by the time) to the Bolshevik Revolution (Trotsky was his special protégé). https://jewishracism.blogspot.com/2008/01/genocidal-jewish-supremacist-jacob-h.html
    “An authority on Russian affairs, George Kennan, told of how a movement by the Society of the Friends of Russian Freedom, financed by Jacob H. Schiff, had at the time of the Russo-Japanese war spread among 50,000 Russian officers and men in Japanese prison camps the gospel of the Russian revolutionists"
    The Maccabean of London wrote in an article entitled "A Jewish Revolution:” "The revolution in Russia is a Jewish revolution, a crisis in Jewish history. … But the revolution in Russia is a Jewish revolution also because Jews are the most active revolutionists in the Tsar's empire.”
    “Jacob Schiff's "philanthropy" ultimately cost the lives of tens of millions of Russians and subjected hundreds of millions more to Jewish repression which has yet to subside.”

    http://www.wildboar.net/multilingual/easterneuropean/russian/literature/articles/whofinanced/whofinancedleninandtrotsky.html

    Thanks Chris.

    I was beginning to think that no one understood. I just read the headline and assumed that the "needs more work" pertained to naming the Jews, but no one else mentioned it, so I thought I was off on the wrong track.

    Don’t despair Iffin. Here is something for you:
    —Another important facet of the Dossier scandal is the Ukrainian influence from the fast-nazificating country: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2017/01/crowdstrikes-russian-hacking-story-fell-apart-say-hello-fancy-bear-2.html
    “Alperovitch’s relationships with the Chalupas, radical groups, think tanks, Ukrainian propagandists, and Ukrainian state supported hackers… when it all adds up and you see it together, we have found a Russian [actually Jewish, born in Moscow, Russia] that tried hard to influence the outcome of the US presidential election in 2016. … Is giving misleading or false information to 17 US Intelligence Agencies a crime? If it’s done by a cyber security industry leader like Crowdstrike should that be investigated?
    … The DNC hacking investigation done by Crowdstrike concluded hacking was done by Russian actors — based on the work done by Alexandra Chalupa. That is the conclusion of her sister Andrea Chalupa and obviously enough for Crowdstrike to make the Russian government connection.
    … How close is Dimitri Alperovitch to DNC officials? According to Esquire.com, Alperovitch has vetted speeches for Hillary Clinton about cybersecurity issues in the past..”
    — Why does the name Alperovitch chime with “Awan affair?” — The scoundrel was the “leading expert” for Obama and Clinton during the whole period when the congressional computers were freely violated by Awan brothers, which has constituted the greatest breach in national cybersecurity.

    I get a blank page at your link -- which appears to be missing the trailing .PDF -- but this link found on G opens to a PDF of a declassified TS document which begins:

    As you know, former British Intelligence Officer Christopher Steele was hired by the private firm Fusion GPS in June 2016 to gather information about "links between Russia and [then-presidential candidate] Donald Trump"
    [...]
    But there is substantial evidence suggesting that Mr. Steele materially misled the FBI about a key aspect of his dossier efforts, one which bears on his credibility.
    [...]
    It is troubling enough that the Clinton Campaign funded Mr. Steele's work, but that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele allegations raises additional concerns about his credibility.
     
    Cue Dr. Watson. So Steele was a "former" British agent peddling bogus intelligence, some of which he shared with Yahoo News, if you can believe that, a veritable National Inquirer of the Internet, but nobody thinks that Blighty might be mucking around with U.S. elections, because after all, a former British agent told us it was the Russians wot dunnit, mate.

    Trump's recent statements before his SOTU address are not comforting:

    “I would love to be able to bring back our country into a great form of unity. Without a major event where people pull together, that’s hard to do. But I would like to do it without that major event because usually that major event is not a good thing.”

    "Persons of interest" in investigations who are the objects of warrants aren't privy to the process, even in proper civilian courts. If your local prosecutor wants a look inside your house, he will apply for a search warrant without notifying you or inviting you to appear with an attorney. That is the norm.

    It does resonate better with a reader for the process to be referred to as unilateral, of course, but that is the way warrants are granted in any criminal procedure. What makes this FISA court reprehensible is that no evidence of criminal activity is even required and the affadavits for FISC warrants are unreviewable by the person being surveilled.

    Oh, I understood that there is nobody there and cannot be because that would give away that a search was coming. I just wanted to point out how one sided the act of getting a search warrant is.

    The “grown up adult, with power and influence, with plenty of money” want more power and more money. By any means. This is why the mainstream media (on orders from the moneyed and powerful) is continuing “to exercise its dangerous obsession with Russia by demanding that the Russiagate inquiry should continue full speed” even if “there is absolutely nothing in the memo itself that indicates that Moscow tried to recruit any Trump associate as an agent or interfere in the U.S. election. The raison d’etre for the Congressional and Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigations appears to be lacking.”

    Mr. Giraldi,

    I need not to go on either patronizing or defensively with you, but I have concerns with your thoughtful words, above.

    First off, Americans have solid evidence that the DNC under Deb Wasserman Shultz facilitated undermining Bernie Sanders campaign. She did not get into any serious trouble, and unaccountably moved on!

    Second, throughout his 2017 campaign, the AIPAC/Sheldon Adelson endorsed Donald Trump maintained consistency in complaining that the election process was "rigged." In addition, candidate Trump consistently spoke to huge crowds and branded the Media as liars. On both accounts, American voters were finally hearing a percentage of truth be told.

    So it seems to me that there was concrete evidence of a not-so "Covert Operation to disrupt an election" underway long before RUSSIAGATE became popularized.

    Of course you will know better than I, Phil, but it seems something much more deceptively sinister is going on than to figure that it's merely one's Grandpappy CIA "up to smelly N.W.O. tricks."

    Why isn’t Page under arrest if this proof exists?

    Good question, but I think its still too early to make any conclusions. There is a lot yet to be revealed from Mueller's office, IMO. Mueller and the FBI need to be very thorough if there is to be any more indictments. It takes time- we'll see.

    It just seems highly unlikely that three renewals would happen (possibly granted by three justices, they rotate) without the goods. And I'm absolutely certain Nunes wouldn't let us know the while story.

    Your thinking is typical of most people and why smear campaigns are so effective. The renewals happen simply because of peoples “reputation” and little more than that. Nobody representing the people being spied upon gets a chance to rebut the allegations.

    "Persons of interest" in investigations who are the objects of warrants aren't privy to the process, even in proper civilian courts. If your local prosecutor wants a look inside your house, he will apply for a search warrant without notifying you or inviting you to appear with an attorney. That is the norm.

    It does resonate better with a reader for the process to be referred to as unilateral, of course, but that is the way warrants are granted in any criminal procedure. What makes this FISA court reprehensible is that no evidence of criminal activity is even required and the affadavits for FISC warrants are unreviewable by the person being surveilled.

    You’re right Ilyana. Those following the Nunes memo story here on Unz should also read the Grassley letter, link below. It is somewhat heavy going but it really confirms that the Steele Dossier was the principal source for the FISC warrant request sought by the Bureau and that Steele was a controlled source working for the FBI. But even so, the information he was providing was both unvetted and largely uncorroborated. He also was receiving information from a Clinton associate and leaking his story to the press to validate what he was presenting to the Bureau. Really wild stuff! A footnote also reveals that the FBI has not been able to produce the 1023s on many of its meetings with Steele. These are like CIA contact reports that are written up to include the details of what is discussed in a meeting with a source. This is beginning to smell like a good old CIA style Covert Operation to disrupt an election only it is playing out right here in the U.S.A.

    Thanks Mr. Giraldi.

    I get a blank page at your link -- which appears to be missing the trailing .PDF -- but this link found on G opens to a PDF of a declassified TS document which begins:

    As you know, former British Intelligence Officer Christopher Steele was hired by the private firm Fusion GPS in June 2016 to gather information about "links between Russia and [then-presidential candidate] Donald Trump"
    [...]
    But there is substantial evidence suggesting that Mr. Steele materially misled the FBI about a key aspect of his dossier efforts, one which bears on his credibility.
    [...]
    It is troubling enough that the Clinton Campaign funded Mr. Steele's work, but that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele allegations raises additional concerns about his credibility.
     
    Cue Dr. Watson. So Steele was a "former" British agent peddling bogus intelligence, some of which he shared with Yahoo News, if you can believe that, a veritable National Inquirer of the Internet, but nobody thinks that Blighty might be mucking around with U.S. elections, because after all, a former British agent told us it was the Russians wot dunnit, mate.

    Trump's recent statements before his SOTU address are not comforting:

    “I would love to be able to bring back our country into a great form of unity. Without a major event where people pull together, that’s hard to do. But I would like to do it without that major event because usually that major event is not a good thing.”

    Hi PintOrTwo,

    In your view, who has most earned “protection,” either (selected/elected?) POT(Z)US Trump or Zio-blessed Mr. Mueller?

    Please be mindful that the latter gentleman was FBI Director during the 9/11 attacks and remains unaccountable for the government’s “stand down” investigatory aftermath.

    Of course, accompanied by his building engineer, please be mindful of the fact that Citizen Trump toured the three (3) “pancaked” WTC Tower site, and found it unlikely that airplanes (consisting of aluminum alloy bodies) could have caused such apocalyptic steel disintegration. I think such conversational footage can be viewed on You Tube.

    It is the general American population that’s being “undermined” by the current Russiagate kabuki-

    "it’s not known whether the Australian had a role in getting him in a talkative mood, but we are told the two met due to the efforts of an Israeli diplomat in London."

    This statistic seems like ipso facto abuse of the FISA system. Of course we are told that, no problem, the DOJ doesn’t go to the FISC unless it has an air-tight cause, and that we must trust the unassailable patriots in the FBI and DOJ who have no inclination to violate Americans’ civil liberties except for the gravest of reasons.

    Such deference goes against everything we know about the types of people who work for the Federal government and the rampant abuse of prosecutorial power and government power in general.

    So much poppycock! Where to begin?

    If Trump is innocent, why is he trying to discredit the FBI?
     
    The FBI discredited itself by spying on an opposition candidate at the behest of the incumbent political party. This is the sort of crap you'd expect from a third-world despot like Hosni Mubarak or Anastacio Somoza, not an American president like BHO.

    If he is innocent, then that’s what Mueller’s investigation will establish.
     
    Innocent until proven guilty, eh? Hope no cop ever drops a dime on you!

    If Trump says he’s innocent, no one will believe him.
     
    If Trump says he's innocent and the partisan witch-hunters still can't find any evidence to the contrary, then why shouldn't I believe him?

    Trump’s best bet is to let Mueller terminate his investigation and co-operate with him in any way he asks.
     
    That's great advice, Michael. In fact, I think you should follow it, too. Why don't you let the police just traipse on into your home any time they like, examine all your personal affects, tap your phone, inspect your hard drive, and just generally turn your life upside down for no particular reason. After all, if you've got nothing to hide, then what's the big deal?

    The Steele dossier strikes me as perfectly adequate probable cause and the fact that it was paid for strengthens that rather than weakens it. When candidates pay for dirt, they want dirt, not something fake that will blow up in their faces when they try to use it.
     

    Two years on, we're all still waiting with bated breath to see this oh-so-titillating golden showers tape that Steele feels 80% confident about.

    Impeachment proceedings are not judicial proceedings and are not subject to the rules of evidence applicable in court.
     
    We very well know that. The problem for the Democrats is that they need 67 Senate seats in order to remove Trump from office. They are highly unlikely to reach that magic number in the mid-terms. No party has enjoyed such a margin in the Senate since the 19th century.

    Why Americans would want to see their country suffer a humiliating defeat at the hands of a foreign power is something which my European mind doesn’t grasp.
     
    I don't know that I speak for everyone here, but personally, I don't want see my country defeated by any power at all. What I want is to see the government defeated!

  • Are we going to get a smoking memo on the FBI’s investigation of Hillary’s email? Remember, none of this would be happening without her private server and mishandled classified info. Her candidacy should have been ended early on. The FBI’s investigation seemed nonstandard to say the least. Much of what followed may be doubling down on and covering up earlier crimes.

    Hi Ilyana,

    Unless suffering flu, e.d., or a hangover, Donald Trump is not in “trouble.” Worst case for him is a return to Mar a lago.

    Snookered Americans and the majority of our planet’s inhabitants are the one’s in trouble.

    On the more serious note. All it is only harassment. I do occasionally visit Breitbart.
    My conclusion is that if Trump would be impeached the countryside would pick up arms.
    Police and army would join. So it would not be really bloody.

    Donald Trump knows something we don’t know. He knows for certain whether or not he or anyone acting on his behalf colluded with Russians during the campaign. If Trump is innocent, why is he trying to discredit the FBI? If he is innocent, then that’s what Mueller’s investigation will establish. If Trump says he’s innocent, no one will believe him. If Mueller says Trump is innocent, the whole world will believe him. Trump’s best bet is to let Mueller terminate his investigation and co-operate with him in any way he asks. If Trump actually is innocent, that is... Thus, the memo is indeed not the bombshell the Republicans claim it is. In fact, it’s a tacit admission of guilt on Trump’s part. It tells us a) that Trump is guilty, b) that Carter Page knows that and can probably prove it and c) that Trump believes, or may actually know, that the FBI has obtained the damning evidence in the wiretap.
    There’s nothing to suggest that the FBI lied to the FISC or even that they needed to. The Steele dossier strikes me as perfectly adequate probable cause and the fact that it was paid for strengthens that rather than weakens it. When candidates pay for dirt, they want dirt, not something fake that will blow up in their faces when they try to use it. The validity of the warrant is relevant only if a federal prosecutor seeks to use the evidence obtained against someone in criminal proceedings in a federal court. Prevailing legal opinion seems to be that a president cannot be prosecuted while he is in office. Thus, it’s hard to see how anything Page said could be used against Trump before he leaves office, at which point Russiagate would be largely irrelevant. Impeachment proceedings are not judicial proceedings and are not subject to the rules of evidence applicable in court. Thus, the fact that evidence was obtained improperly would not prevent its use in such proceedings, which themselves are not subject to judicial review. So Trump trying to discredit the FBI over the Carter Page wiretap simply points the accusing finger at himself and tells the Robert Mueller where to look for proof of Trump’s guilt! The Nunes memo is panic. It’s the desperate flailing of a cornered man.
    As can be seen from the final paragraph, Mr Giraldi does not deny that there was Russian interference, which would be difficult in the light of Trump Junior’s testimony. He is defending Putin not Trump. The latter seems to be little more than a useful idiot in the “let Putin win” campaign. Why Americans would want to see their country suffer a humiliating defeat at the hands of a foreign power is something which my European mind doesn’t grasp.

    Defeat at the hands of what foreign power?

    Justin, referring to the meeting between Papadopoulos and the Australian ambasador says:


    "it’s not known whether the Australian had a role in getting him in a talkative mood, but we are told the two met due to the efforts of an Israeli diplomat in London."

    “Alperovitch’s relationships with the Chalupas, radical groups, think tanks, Ukrainian propagandists, and Ukrainian state supported hackers... when it all adds up and you see it together, we have found a Russian [actually Jewish, born in Moscow, Russia] that tried hard to influence the outcome of the US presidential election in 2016. ... Is giving misleading or false information to 17 US Intelligence Agencies a crime? If it’s done by a cyber security industry leader like Crowdstrike should that be investigated?
    … The DNC hacking investigation done by Crowdstrike concluded hacking was done by Russian actors -- based on the work done by Alexandra Chalupa. That is the conclusion of her sister Andrea Chalupa and obviously enough for Crowdstrike to make the Russian government connection.
    … How close is Dimitri Alperovitch to DNC officials? According to Esquire.com, Alperovitch has vetted speeches for Hillary Clinton about cybersecurity issues in the past..”
    --- Why does the name Alperovitch chime with "Awan affair?" -- The scoundrel was the "leading expert" for Obama and Clinton during the whole period when the congressional computers were freely violated by Awan brothers, which has constituted the greatest breach in national cybersecurity.

    So much poppycock! Where to begin?

    If Trump is innocent, why is he trying to discredit the FBI?

    The FBI discredited itself by spying on an opposition candidate at the behest of the incumbent political party. This is the sort of crap you’d expect from a third-world despot like Hosni Mubarak or Anastacio Somoza, not an American president like BHO.

    If he is innocent, then that’s what Mueller’s investigation will establish.

    Innocent until proven guilty, eh? Hope no cop ever drops a dime on you!

    If Trump says he’s innocent, no one will believe him.

    If Trump says he’s innocent and the partisan witch-hunters still can’t find any evidence to the contrary, then why shouldn’t I believe him?

    Trump’s best bet is to let Mueller terminate his investigation and co-operate with him in any way he asks.

    That’s great advice, Michael. In fact, I think you should follow it, too. Why don’t you let the police just traipse on into your home any time they like, examine all your personal affects, tap your phone, inspect your hard drive, and just generally turn your life upside down for no particular reason. After all, if you’ve got nothing to hide, then what’s the big deal?

    The Steele dossier strikes me as perfectly adequate probable cause and the fact that it was paid for strengthens that rather than weakens it. When candidates pay for dirt, they want dirt, not something fake that will blow up in their faces when they try to use it.

    Two years on, we’re all still waiting with bated breath to see this oh-so-titillating golden showers tape that Steele feels 80% confident about.

    Impeachment proceedings are not judicial proceedings and are not subject to the rules of evidence applicable in court.

    We very well know that. The problem for the Democrats is that they need 67 Senate seats in order to remove Trump from office. They are highly unlikely to reach that magic number in the mid-terms. No party has enjoyed such a margin in the Senate since the 19th century.

    Why Americans would want to see their country suffer a humiliating defeat at the hands of a foreign power is something which my European mind doesn’t grasp.

    I don’t know that I speak for everyone here, but personally, I don’t want see my country defeated by any power at all. What I want is to see the government defeated!

    So far I did not hear about the any tape. There cannot be 80 percent. Either There is tape or there isn't.

    But the story goes like this.
    Trump when in Moscow did rent the same room where Obama and Michel did sleep before.
    Than he did hire a three Russian prostitutes who performed striptease for him while he played with himself. the scene culminated by three prostitutes peeing on the bed on which Obama and Michel slept.
    In my opinion this total idiotic BS made up story.

    The second angle against Trump is that Russians told through some intermediary that they have some dirt on Hillary and they want a meeting with Trumps son.

    This is quite a double idiocy of the idiocy before, Because it denigrate the Russian diplomacy to some wild tribe in Amazon. Even if they wanted to meet with Trump's son, they would never acknowledge the intermediary of the purpose of the meeting.

    In my opinion the people who submitted on basis of this request for FISA should be hanged for stupidity, and judge who signed it of, should be locked in mental institution for life.

    Imagine how shameful and deranged the US politicians are at highest level of government.

    Democrats draw conclusion that Trump should resign or be impeached because he is vulnerable to blackmail by Russians.

    In the second case they are trying to prove that there was collusion with Russia.

    Both cases are only pile of manure.

    So here is the state of American politics -----manure.
