HARRY REID – A CRIMINAL BY NO OTHER NAME – A VAIN ATTEMPT TO TAKE DOWN THE FREELY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

To protect Hillary “lock her up” Clinton in the run for the White House FAKE information given to pugnacious Senator, “Harry Black Eye” Reid was the meal ticket utilized to sabotage the Trump run for the Presidency of the United States.  JOHN BRENNAN! Yes Brennan, under the head of the CIA under Obama told Reid not to release it, but did he?

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) sends a letter to then-FBI Director Comey voicing concern over Russian interference in the election and asking Comey to open an FBI investigation.

 – The Washington Times – Saturday, May 12, 2018

Then-Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid released a letter in the heat of the 2016 election alleging Trump-Russia collusion even though the CIA director at the time urged him not to, according to a person familiar with their conversation.

Mr. Reid’s Aug. 27 letter to the FBI appears to mark the first time a Democrat officially accused President’ Trump’s campaign of colluding with the Russian government to hack his party’s computers.

The letter has come to represent for conservatives the “deep state” — Obama loyalists leaking unproven allegations to the press against Mr. Trump and his people to ruin the campaign, the transition and the White House.

“The evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount,” Mr. Reid wrote to FBI Director James B. Comey.

Mr. Reid wrote and leaked his letter after receiving a secret telephone briefing from then-CIA Director John Brennan.

The retired senator has portrayed the letter as having the blessing of Mr. Brennan, a fierce Trump critic who suggests the president is beholden to Russian President Vladimir Putin for fear of blackmail.

But now the Brennan side rebuts Mr. Reid’s contention that the then-CIA director was actively trying to leak damaging anti-Trump information during the election.

Nick Shapiro, former deputy chief of staff for Mr. Brennan as CIA director, told The Washington Times that his ex-boss considered the information sensitive. He expressly urged Mr. Reid to confine the information to private discussions with Mr. Comey.

That August, Mr. Brennan was briefing the so called “gang of eight” congressional leaders on Russian computer hacking and on suspicious that Trump people were involved.

Mr. Shapiro, now a Brennan adviser, provided this version of the Brennan-Reid phone call:

“Brennan used the same exact notes to brief Reid as he used with the other members of the Gang of Eight. In fact, most of the conversation was spent with Senator Reid telling Brennan what he had heard about Russians and the Trump campaign. Senator Reid informed Brennan that he was in the process of drafting a letter to Comey about his concerns. When Senator Reid asked Brennan whether he could reference this information in the letter to Comey, Brennan said ‘no,’ as the intelligence was being tightly controlled and he was worried that the letter would get out into the public. Brennan told him that Comey had been fully briefed on the intelligence and if he wanted to, it would be better to talk to him about it in a secure manner when he returned to D.C. instead of putting it in a letter.”

Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, wrote the letter anyway. And it was leaked to The New York Times and then migrated throughout the mainstream media.

It contained references to a Trump aide traveling to Moscow and allegedly meeting with two sanctioned Kremlin figures — an allegation contained in the Democratic Party-financed dossier written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele. The unnamed person is Carter Page, who has denied under oath he ever met the two people named by Mr. Steele.

The dossier at that point had not been published. The FBI possessed copies and had opened a counter-intelligence investigation into Russia meddling the previous month.

Mr. Reid’s version of his phone call from Mr. Brennan is contained in the best-selling book, “Russian Roulette,” which embraces the Trump-Russia conspiracy and promotes the Steele dossier.

The book says:

“Reid also had the impression that Brennan had an ulterior motive,” the authors said. “He concluded the CIA chief believed the public needed to know about the Russian operation, including the information about the possible links to the Trump campaign. When Reid later was asked if Brennan directly or indirectly had enlisted him to push information held by the intelligence community into the public realm, he told an interviewer, ‘Why do you think he called me?’

Mr. Shapiro, Mr. Brennan’s adviser, said that specific book excerpt is inaccurate. He also told The Times that rather than trying to sell Trump-Russia collusion during the campaign, the Obama White House and Mr. Brennan stayed silent.

The Washington Times submitted questions to Mr. Reid’s associates at a public policy institute in Nevada where he serves as co-chairman. The queries went unanswered.

Mr. Reid did not stop his drumbeat on Trump-Russia. After Mr. Steele leaked his dossier narrative to selected reporters in Washington, Yahoo News, whose Michael Isikoff co-authored “Russian Roulette,” wrote a story.

But The New York Times dampened the narrative with an Oct. 31 story headlined, “Investigating Donald Trump, FBISees No Clear Link to Russia.”

Mr. Reid was furious

Adam Jentleson, his deputy chief of staff, tweeted, “I’ll say it: NYT interviewed Reid for this story. He said things contrary to the story. NYT discarded the interview.”

“Maybe some want to know why the NYT seemed to cover for Comey’s FBI? Maybe even some at the NYT? Maybe not? I’m just asking questions,” Jentleson said. The New York Times would go on to become one of journalism’s chief proponents of Trump-Russia collusion.

The Washington Times has examined Mr. Steele’s series of collusion charges and found that none has been confirmed independently and publicly at this point. Special counsel Robert Mueller continues to investigate.

However, the FBI’s investigation remained a secret during the campaign. Despite public pressure, including public letters from then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on August 29 and October 30, 2016, the latter claiming that the FBI was concealing “explosive information about close ties and coordination between Trump and his top advisers, and the Russian government,” the FBI did not disclose its investigation until after the election. In fact, on October 31, 2016, The New York Times reported that FBI officials had not found evidence demonstrating links between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

The Carter Page FISAs are out via the Freedom of Information Act. Here are a few observations, relatively brief but still just a bit too long for Twitter.

First, a huge amount of information is redacted in these FISA applications, but they still represent a monumental disclosure to the public. The government considers FISA applications to be very sensitive—and their disclosure, even heavily redacted, may have long-term, programmatic consequences long after we’re finished with President Trump. The government seems to have accepted that FOIA applies to FISA. Without taking a position on the issue it made me recall this Lawfare post that argues to the contrary.

Second, for those who don’t remember, the controversy about these FISA applications first arose in February when House intelligence committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes released a memo claiming that the FBI misled the FISA Court about Christopher Steele, the former British secret agent who compiled the “dossier” on Trump-Russia ties and who was a source of information in the FISA applications on Page. The main complaint in the Nunes memo was that FBI whitewashed Steele—that the FISA applications did not “disclose or reference the role of the DNC, Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were then known to senior and FBI officials.”

In response to the Nunes memo, the Democrats on the committee released their own memo. That memo quoted from parts of the FISA applications, including a footnote in which the FBI explained that Steele was hired to “conduct research regarding Candidate #1,” Donald Trump, and Trump’s “ties to Russia,” and that the man who hired him was “likely looking for information that could be used to discredit [Trump’s] campaign.”

Based on this back and forth between the HPSCI partisans, I wrote on Lawfare at the time that the FBI’s disclosures on Steele “amply satisfie[d] the requirements” for FISA applications, and that the central irony of the Nunes memo was that it “tried to deceive the American people in precisely the same way that it falsely accused the FBI of deceiving the FISA Court.” The Nunes memo accused the FBI of dishonesty in failing to disclose information about Steele, but in fact the Nunes memo itself was dishonest in failing to disclose what the FBI disclosed. I said then, and I still believe, that the “Nunes memo was dishonest. And if it is allowed to stand, we risk significant collateral damage to essential elements of our democracy.”

Now we have some additional information in the form of the redacted FISA applications themselves, and the Nunes memo looks even worse. In my earlier post, I observed that the FBI’s disclosures about Steele were contained in a footnote, but argued that this did not detract from their sufficiency: “As someone who has read and approved many FISA applications and dealt extensively with the FISA Court, I will anticipate and reject a claim that the disclosure was somehow insufficient because it appeared in a footnote; in my experience, the court reads the footnotes.” Now we can see that the footnote disclosing Steele’s possible bias takes up more than a full page in the applications, so there is literally no way the FISA Court could have missed it. The FBI gave the court enough information to evaluate Steele’s credibility.

There’s also more detail on the previous disclosure from the House intelligence committee Democrats’ memo on how Steele went to the press with the “dossier” when FBI Director James Comey sent his October 2016 letter to Congress disclosing the possible newfound importance of the Weiner laptop in the Clinton investigation. According to the FISA applications, Steele complained that Comey’s action could influence the election. But when Steele went to the press, it caused FBI to close him out as an informant—facts which are disclosed and cross-referenced in the footnote in bold text.

While I am sure people will try, my initial impression is that with all the redactions it is going to be very tough to figure out the full scope of information supporting the Court’s repeated finding of probable cause to believe that Carter Page was an agent of Russia. There is a mention of two Russians, one of whom pleaded guilty to being an unregistered agent of a foreign government and was sentenced to 30 months, but even that is disconnected from the redacted discussion that precedes it. Substantively, the government seems to have hewed as closely to the prior disclosures as it could in applying FOIA.

But it is worth noting that—and as the Democrats previously pointed out—the judges who signed off on these four FISA applications were all appointed by Republican presidents, including one George H.W. Bush appointee (Anne Conway), two George W. Bush appointees (Rosemary Collyer and Michael Mosman) and one Reagan appointee (Raymond Dearie). I know some of those judges, and they certainly are not the types to let partisan politics affect their legal judgments.

This illusion to the Republican appointed judges is in fact not telling the whole story because,  the FISA applications did not “disclose or reference the role of the DNC, Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were then known to senior and FBI officials.”

VOLCANIC ERUPTION ABOUT TO BLOW IN WASHINGTON D.C.

Lava flow is emanating from the fissures of Kilauea destroying property along the way. Volcanic ash is raining down on the Big Island with vigor and aplomb. Although this feature of Mother Nature is intriguing to watch from a scientific perspective the violent nature of this phenomena is a sight to behold. To a religious zealot the destruction is the result of an angry god pouring forth deserved punishment.The Soputan volcano spews lava and ash during an eruption on Indonesia's Sulawesi island in January 2016.Reuters Photo

A volcano of a different sort is ready to blow in Washington D.C. – it is of the man made variety. Sometimes they are more dangerous than a natural one. What we are talking about is a FBI-CIA cabal that infiltrated the Trump campaign early on. Smoke is pouring out of the FBI building as we speak; this is a tell tale sign of more volcanic activity about to be released. From information flow leaking from the fissures atop the J. Edgar Hoover edifice warns of a violent eruption about to roar and destroy anything in its path. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: OBAMA ORDERS HIS TEAM OF PLUMBERS TO SPY ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN

UPDATE: SUSAN RICE caught in a bunch of lies. Now we discover that it was she who ordered the UNMASKING of NAMES in the OBAMAGATE surveillance of the Trump Tower. CLICK HERE for the Hannity video and more.   Rand Paul calls for Susan Rice to testify under oath. 

ANALYSIS/OPINION: from the Washington Times

Sen. Rand Paul followed a bomb-blaster of a tweet about Susan Rice’s supposed “spying on [the] Trump campaign” with a call for her to come to Capitol Hill, take the oath and testify.

She won’t. But she should. At the very least, it’d be good for the former Barack Obama national security adviser to explain just why she wanted to “unmask” the names of those in intelligence reports tied to President Donald Tr

Remember that this is the same Susan Rice who was pushed out to give the false narrative on Benghazi. 

 

 

Think of the Plumbers of Watergate fame, a rag-tag cloak and dagger ensemble put together by members of the Nixon administration. Nixon was elected to be the 37th President of the United States. He took office in January 1969.  In August 21, 1971: Nixon’s Enemies List is started by White House aides (though Nixon himself may not have been aware of it); to “use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies.”

September 3, 1971: “White House Plumbers” E. Howard Hunt, G. Gordon Liddy et al. break into the offices of Daniel Ellsberg’s psychiatrist Lewis Fielding looking for material that might discredit Ellsberg, under the direction of John Ehrlichman or his staff within the White House. This was the Plumbers’ first major operation.

The Pentagon Papers, officially titled United States – Vietnam Relations, 1945–1967: A Study Prepared by the Department of Defense, is a United States Department of Defense history of the United States’ political-military involvement in Vietnam from 1945 to 1967. The papers were released by Daniel Ellsberg, who had worked on the study; they were first brought to the attention of the public on the front page of The New York Times in 1971. A 1996 article in The New York Times said that the Pentagon Papers had demonstrated, among other things, that the Johnson Administration “systematically lied, not only to the public but also to Congress”.

More specifically, the papers revealed that the U.S. had secretly enlarged the scale of the Vietnam War with the bombings of nearby Cambodia and Laos, coastal raids on North Vietnam, and Marine Corps attacks, none of which were reported in the mainstream media.

For his disclosure of the Pentagon Papers, Ellsberg was initially charged with conspiracy, espionage, and theft of government property, but the charges were later dropped after prosecutors investigating the Watergate Scandal discovered that the staff members in the Nixon White House had ordered the so-called White House Plumbers to engage in unlawful efforts to discredit Ellsberg.

June 17, 1972: The plumbers are arrested at 2:30 a.m. in the process of burglarizing and planting surveillance bugs in the Democratic National Committee offices at the Watergate Building Complex.

Early August 1974: A previously unknown tape from June 23, 1972 (recorded a few days after the break-in) documenting Nixon and Haldeman formulating a plan to block investigations, is released. This recording would later become known as the “Smoking Gun”.

Does all of the above smell like something in the Obama administration. Foreign intelligence, domestic surveillance, false stories, rumors, innuendo targeting the Trump campaign. There is no doubt that members of the Obama administration ran a covert operation to discredit the Trump run for the White House. Operatives in the FBI, CIA, NSA and others were involved at the request of Obama. Similar to the Lois Lerner targeting the TEA PARTY, these agencies were directed to target and discredit Trump at every turn.

However, like DEEP THROAT in the Watergate caper spilling the beans, we now have Obama’s Deep Throat in the name of Evelyn Farkas. Unsurprisingly, President Donald J. Trump was correct. Though he originally spoke, or tweeted, clumsily, the gist of his claim was correct: The administration of his predecessor, Barack H. Obama, had indeed been surveilling Trump and those close to his campaign.

Yet, notice, Farkas never said that the intel proved anything so much as resembling “collusion” between Putin or “the Russians” and Trump. Had there been anything there, she would have done what no one has yet to do and offer at least a scintilla of evidence to substantiate this charge.

We now wait for those responsible, the ones who spied on American citizens to be outed, to be brought up on charges and convicted of breaking the law. As in the Watergate affair, we know that many were involved. Farkas, a screaming liberal, has opened the door. Trump and his team have been given a golden opportunity to ascertain not only the culprits but the Kingpin, who ordered the operation. We know who he was, Ex President Obama.

Rooting them out will take more than Roto Rooter. Roto-rooterlogo.PNGIt will be necessary to bring in Mr. Dynamite.  James Brown Live Hamburg 1973 1702730029.jpg

 

OBAMA etal HAVE CROSSED THE RUBICON – WATERBOARDING IS CALLED FOR

Democrats pulled out all stops to prevent the Trump campaign from succeeding. They torched Comey, they threatened Lynch, they accused Trump of everything under the sun. Most of all they SPIED ON TRUMP through electronic surveillance (1984 is here) of THE TOWER. But that was not all they LIED ABOUT IT and continue to do so up to this day. Clapper is either guilty of perjury or stupidity; time for him to face the music – waterboarding works. Trump and his team are now hitting back; count on heads to roll in this 2017 version of OBAMAGATE.

The Clinton disaster was in the making, to prevent Trump winning the White House; Obama directed a covert cloak and dagger operation. The objective was to gather intelligence which would associate Trump and a secret Russian spy operation on the United States that sought to influence the presidential election. Crazy as it seems it was Obama and Clinton who cooperated with Russia rather the other way around.  The approval of selling 20% of our uranium supply to Russia may not have depended on Clinton giving the OK, but when smoke comes from the barrel of a gun assumptions are made that secret money was involved. And so it was.

It is also true that large donations to the foundation from the chairman of Uranium One, Ian Telfer, at around the time of the Russian purchase of the company and while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, were never disclosed to the public. The multimillion sums were channeled through a subsidiary of the Clinton Foundation, CGSCI, which did not reveal its individual donors.

Such awkward collisions between Bill’s fundraising activities and Hillary’s public service have raised concerns not just among those who might be dismissed as part of a vast right-wing conspiracy.

The alt-left is in a frenzy, true barbarians for sure. Destruction, trash and burn are left in their wake.   Rage mode is their paradigm. Beaten to a pulp, their legacy hangs in the balance. Soon it will be Ginsberg entering her eternal rest. The Constitution again will rise from the ashes. The 14th Amendment must be adjudicated in its proper fashion. The Supremes will declare that anchor babies are not United States Citizens. The Founding Fathers never meant it to be.

A man-made stream or watercourse on a family farm should not be the concern of the EPA. The reckless affirmative action laws, statutes and regulations must be eviscerated. Illegal immigrants are ILLEGAL, there are no two ways about it; round them up and ship them out. It is time we got some backbone and dictated to them not the other way around. Let them stand in line like everyone else. No free get out of jail card.

Well what about the dreamers? We don’t want to be called racist so to be fair to them; a routine has to be worked out, one way or another.  We are a compassionate nation, bring them in to the mainstream, after all they did not commit the crime, their parents did. And the Latino gangs, they are a grave threat to the Latino/Hispanic community, but also a threat to the communities across the country. Prosecute, jail and deport. Get them out of here now.

OK, what about the Democ-rats. Call them out, go after them with a vengeance. Bring those who treat our laws with impunity to justice. Arrest the politician who thinks that they are above the law they took a pledge to honor and obey. Those harboring illegals are a threat to our county more so than the illegals. They believe that laws that they don’t agree with don’t have to be enforced. Not so! Activate the National Guard, round up the scofflaws, arrest them, try them and jail them. What a sight to see, sitting governors and mayors in the clink.

Clorox the bureaucracy. They have paralyzed the country with regulations. Free us from the Blue Hand of Big Government.

 

CRIMINALS OCCUPY THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AND FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION AND ALL AGENCIES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

DOJ, FBI and even the courts are suspect. The events of the past year have told us is one thing, Donald J. Trump is correct, “the system is rigged.” Hillary is not in jail, Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney are cry babies, sore losers. Loretta Lynch has sold  herself to the Clintons. Jim Comey’s initial decision on Clinton was equal to a Houdini escape, twisting and turning, pulling and pushing until somehow he was able to extricate himself from the most devious coverup in United States history. JAIL THE BIRD

The NBTP has been talking about the internal takeover of the levers of power by the Progressive World Order. In this breaking video Steve Pieczenik not only discusses the Clinton takeover of the United States, but reveals his face after years of staying off camera.

Click here to learn more of the insestous relationship of our government with the Clintons. Newly released emails appear to show a State Department official coordinating with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign before her use of a private email to conduct government business was revealed.

Emails from campaign chairman John Podesta show that the state official provided Clinton aides with the agency’s official response to a New York Times reporter in advance of the paper’s March 2015 report that Clinton had used a private email account to conduct business while serving as secretary of state.

And it continued last year last year. The DOH gave inside information to the Clinton campaign biggie, John Podesta.

Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik, the official now in charge of informing Congress about the revived Clinton email probe, gave a personal status update to the Clinton campaign in the email sent May 19, 2015. There is a [House Judiciary Committee] oversight hearing today where the head of our Civil Division will testify,” Kadzik wrote. “Likely to get questions on State Department emails.”

The carnage that has transpired during the past 8 years can be stopped on November 8; our government must be taken back;  those responsible brought to justice ASAP. All Federal agencies, Big Government and the Military, which has been euthanized under Obama, must be Cloroxed of the USUAL SUSPECTS.
