The Democrat’s Socialists’ Fusion Collusion

THE FUSION COLLUSION

by Scott Johnson  at PowerLine:

If we were ever to get to the bottom of actual collusion in the course of the 2016 election, it would be that of the Democrats with the Fusion GPS smear outfit. Kim Strassel’s Wall Street Journal column updates the story of the appearance of two Fusion GPS principals before the House Intelligence Committee. In “The case of Fusion GPS,” I noted the intention of company witnesses to claim the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination to maintain their silence. They refuse to tell the committee who paid for the infamous Trump Dossier or whom their clients were. Kim now reports that they proceeded to do just that on Thursday. In the heart of her column Kim explains:

[Fusion GPS is] the firm behind the infamous “dossier” accusing Donald Trump of not just unbecoming behavior but also colluding with Russia. Republicans are investigating whether the Fusion dossier was influenced by Russians, and whether American law enforcement relied on that disinformation for its own probe.

But Fusion’s secret weapon in its latest operation is the Democratic Party, whose most powerful members have made protecting Fusion’s secrets their highest priority. Senate Democrats invoked a parliamentary maneuver in July to block temporarily Mr. Browder’s public testimony. Rep. Adam Schiff, the Democratic ranking member on the Intelligence Committee, has been engineering flaps to undercut and obstruct Mr. Nunes’s investigation. Democrats on the House Ethics Committee have deep-sixed what was meant to be a brief inquiry to clear Mr. Nunes so as to keep him sidelined.

Then there is the intel committee’s meeting this week. Despite the spin, forcing Fusion to appear was Republicans’ only recourse after months of stonewalling. Fusion’s letter ludicrously claimed that Mr. Nunes’s subpoenas were invalid, which essentially forced the committee to show otherwise. It was a question of authority.

Florida Rep. Tom Rooney put the Fusion attendees through a series of questions not out of spite but to clarify finally just what topics the firm is refusing to talk about. The Fifth Amendment doesn’t provide protection against answering all questions. It only protects against providing self-incriminating evidence. It is therefore revealing that Fusion took the Fifth on every topic—from its relationship with British spook Christopher Steele, to the history of its work, to its role in the dossier.

The untold story is the Democrats’ unprecedented behavior. Mr. Rooney had barely started when committee staffers for Mr. Schiff interrupted, accused him of badgering witnesses, and suggested he was acting unethically. Jaws dropped. Staff do not interrupt congressmen. They do not accuse them of misbehavior. And they certainly do not act as defense attorneys for witnesses. No Democratic lawmakers had bothered to come to the hearing to police this circus, and Mr. Rooney told me that he “won’t be doing any more interviews without a member from the minority present.”

Private-sector lawyers also tend not to accuse congressmen of unethical behavior, as Mr. Levy did in his letter to Mr. Nunes. But Fusion’s legal eagle must feel safe. He’s former general counsel to the Senate’s minority leader, Chuck Schumer. He has also, I’m told by people familiar with the committee’s activities, more than once possessed information that he would have had no earthly means of knowing, since it was secret committee business. Consider that: Democratic members of Congress or their staff providing sensitive details of an investigation to a company to which the committee has given subpoenas.

You’d think all this would be big news in the context of the hysteria over alleged collusion of the Trump campaign with the Russian. A special counsel with a virtually unlimited mandate to torment President Trump, his family and his associates past and present has left the Fusion GPS/Trump Dossier matter untouched. The hysteria over alleged Trump campaign collusion with Russia appears to be little more than a pretext for the Mueller operation.

Washington Post’s Frederica Wilson’s Ditsy, Loony-Lefty World

I wonder if the Obama fascist left’s Washington Post editorial staff pays Florida’s Frederica Wilson  to be ditsy and loony in order to advance their Stalinist agendas.   I know they love scatterbrained Maxine Waters “the ancient”  from California.   She is nastier and  has a bigger mouth and spews less humor  against Truth when featured on CNN.

And then there is  Representative Hank Johnson  from Florida who in legislative conference (televised) was either drunk or entered second childhood early by worrying for sake of the republic  about the island of Guam sinking if too many  American troops were to set up shop on that small island.

This is a black racist bunch of the Democrat Party paid to keep America’s urban colored dependent upon government  handouts to maintain the Party’s control of their votes.  The Party can’t win national elections without their urban slaves’ and servants’ votes.

JudeoChristian values have become the enemy of the American Left.   Lying, distorting, contriving are all  essential for Schumer’s leftist Democrats and their CNNs to secure  final control of our government.   That Party is  already quite Leninist in its religious and political  actions  established  to do so without competition.    Fake news is its political book of worship.

Federica Wilson is an old timer selling her ditsyness, that is fake news filled with lies, assault, charm and a smile.

JOHN KELLY OWES THE CONGRESSWOMAN AN APOLOGY

(by the Washington Post’s fascistic editorial staff, the congresswoman being the reliably ditsy, Fredericka Wilson from Florida:)

“WHITE HOUSE Chief of Staff John F. Kelly owes Rep. Frederica S. Wilson (D-Fla.) an apology. That is the only conclusion that can be drawn after watching a video of the representative’s remarks at the dedication of an FBI building in Miramar, Fla., in 2015.

Mr. Kelly took to the lectern in the White House briefing room Thursday to defend President Trump’s handling of a condolence call to a widow of one of the soldiers killed in Niger and to attack Ms. Wilson as selfish and politically motivated for her criticism. To bolster that characterization, he offered up his remembrance of the dedication of the FBI building in memory of two FBI agents who had been killed in the line of duty. He claimed Ms. Wilson used the occasion to take unseemly credit for securing federal funding for the building. “We were stunned,” he said, “stunned that she had done it. Even for someone that is that empty a barrel, we were stunned.”….)  Please continue reading below:

Krauthammer Warns America of Obama’s OFA Creep to Communism

Bruce and Arlene Taber sent the following outstanding article in the New York Post by Charles Krauthammer:

”There’s a reason why in New York Harbor we have the Statue of Liberty,
Not the Statue of Equality.”An article from the New York Post:I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called “Organizing for Action” (OFA).

OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?

If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!

Our ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration’s top dogs over to Organizing for Action.

OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing across America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.

OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for “progressive” change. Its issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform.

OFA members were propped up by the ex-president’s message from the shadows: “Organizing is the building block of everything great we have accomplished Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond.”

OFA’s website says it obtained its “digital” assets from the ex-president’s re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short, it is the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic we know as AMERICA.

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says, “The OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.”

Sperry writes that, “The ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that the OFA has 32,525 (and growing) volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office in Washington DC.

Think about how this works.. For example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; the OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; the ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action in support of these activities; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; and violence follows. All of this happens from the ex-president’s signal that he is heartened by the protests..

If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.

If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.

So, do your part. You have read it, so at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a “PERFECT TARGET” for our enemy!

“The Enemy Among Us” Commentary By Charles Krauthammer- Incorrect Attribution!

Summary of eRumor:

Charles Krauthammer has penned a column under the headline, “The Enemy Among Us,” about President Obama’s use of a group called Organizing for  Action (OFA) to advance his political agenda after leaving the White House.

The Truth:

We couldn’t track down the author of the “The Enemy Among Us” commentary, but it was not written by conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer or published by the New York Post.

The column first surfaced in discussion forums and on social media in February 2017. At the time, it was attributed to the New York Post, but no author was listed. A quick read of those early versions reveals that the column wasn’t published in the New York Post — but it cited and was largely based on a commentary written by Post columnist Paul Sperry under the headline, “How Obama Is Scheming to Sabotage Trump’s Presidency.”

Sperry argues in the column that Organizing for Action (OFA), a 501c4 nonprofit group derived from Obama’s reelection campaign that works to organize and mobilize support for the former president’s agenda, has  undermined President Trump by planning protests and coordinating opposition to Trump’s presidential agenda.

“The Enemy Among Us” has a similar premise, but it goes a step forward by arguing that Obama is using OFA to not only undermine Trump’s presidency — but to undermine America. Some version even reference a coming civil war:I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called “Organizing for Action” (OFA).

OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?

If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!

“The Enemy Among Us” column was first attributed to Charles Krauthammer by Before Its News, a website that publishes user-generated (and conspiracy-minded) commentaries with no editing or fact-checking, on October 12, 2017. However, the commentary can’t be found at places where Krauthammer’s work regularly appears, including  Fox News, the National Review and the Washington Post.

And we’ve seen columns inaccurately attributed to Charles Krauthammer before. Because he’s a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist and a household name in conservative circles, Krauthammer’s name has been falsely used to help raise the visibility of essays and commentaries like this one in the past. The idea is that people give more weight to a column by Krauthammer, a well-known conservative thinker, than to a column by somebody they’ve never heard of. That appears to be the case here. Krauthammer didn’t write “The Enemy Among Us.”

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
