Will Hillary’s Fascists at the FBI Finally Confront Their Crimes?

10 declassified Russia collusion revelations that could rock Washington this fall

It was in September 2018 that President Trump told my Hill.TV colleague Buck Sexton and me that he would order the release of all classified documents showing what the FBI, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and other U.S. intelligence agencies may have done wrong in the Russia probe.

About the same time, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, under then-Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), voted unanimously to send 53 nonpublic transcripts of witnesses in its Russia review to the director of national intelligence (DNI) for declassification. The transcripts were officially delivered in November.

Now, nearly a year later, neither release has happened.

To put that into perspective, it took just a couple of months in 2004 to declassify the final report on the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks after a presidential commission finished its work, which contained some of the nation’s most secretive intelligence revelations.

But the long wait for transparency may soon end.

The foot-dragging inside the intelligence community (IC) that occurred under now-departed DNI Dan Coats and his deputy, Sue Gordon, could halt abruptly. That’s particularly true if Trump appoints a new IC sheriff, such as former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the current ambassador to the Netherlands, or longtime national security expert Fred Fleitz.

Likewise, the president has an opportunity to speed up and organize the release of declassified information by simply creating an Office of Transparency and Accountability inside his own White House, run by a staffer empowered at the level of a formal assistant to the president. That would prevent intelligence agencies from continuing their game of public keep-away.

Nunes, who helped to unravel the Russia collusion farce, has identified five buckets of information he’d like to see released. One of those buckets, the FBI’s interview reports on Bruce Ohr’s cooperation, was released last week — not through a Trump declassification order but, rather, through litigation brought by Judicial Watch, and with heavy redactions.

My reporting, including interviews with four dozen U.S. officials over the last several months, actually identifies a much larger collection of documents — about a dozen all together — that, when declassified, would show more completely how a routine counterintelligence probe was hijacked to turn the most awesome spy powers in America against a presidential nominee in what was essentially a political dirty trick orchestrated by Democrats.

Here are the documents that have the greatest chance of rocking Washington, if declassified:

1.)   Christopher Steele’s confidential human source reports at the FBI. These documents, known in bureau parlance as 1023 reports, show exactly what transpired each time Steele and his FBI handlers met in the summer and fall of 2016 to discuss his anti-Trump dossier. The big reveal, my sources say, could be the first evidence that the FBI shared sensitive information with Steele, such as the existence of the classified Crossfire Hurricane operation targeting the Trump campaign. It would be a huge discovery if the FBI fed Trump-Russia intel to Steele in the midst of an election, especially when his ultimate opposition-research client was Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The FBI has released only one or two of these reports under Freedom of Information Act lawsuits and they were 100 percent redacted. The American public deserves better.

2.)   The 53 House Intel interviews. House Intelligence interviewed many key players in the Russia probe and asked the DNI to declassify those interviews nearly a year ago, after sending the transcripts for review last November. There are several big reveals, I’m told, including the first evidence that a lawyer tied to the Democratic National Committee had Russia-related contacts at the CIA.

3.)   The Stefan Halper documents. It has been widely reported that European-based American academic Stefan Halper and a young assistant, Azra Turk, worked as FBI sources. We know for sure that one or both had contact with targeted Trump aides like Carter Page and George Papadopoulos at the end of the election. My sources tell me there may be other documents showing Halper continued working his way to the top of Trump’s transition and administration, eventually reaching senior advisers like Peter Navarro inside the White House in summer 2017. These documents would show what intelligence agencies worked with Halper, who directed his activity, how much he was paid and how long his contacts with Trump officials were directed by the U.S. government’s Russia probe.

4.)   The October 2016 FBI email chain. This is a key document identified by Rep. Nunes and his investigators. My sources say it will show exactly what concerns the FBI knew about and discussed with DOJ about using Steele’s dossier and other evidence to support a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant targeting the Trump campaign in October 2016. If those concerns weren’t shared with FISA judges who approved the warrant, there could be major repercussions.

5.)   Page/Papadopoulos exculpatory statements. Another of Nunes’s five buckets, these documents purport to show what the two Trump aides were recorded telling undercover assets or captured in intercepts insisting on their innocence. Papadopoulos told me he told an FBI undercover source in September 2016 that the Trump campaign was not trying to obtain hacked Clinton documents from Russia and considered doing so to be treason. If he made that statement with the FBI monitoring, and it was not disclosed to the FISA court, it could be another case of FBI or DOJ misconduct.

6.)   The ‘Gang of Eight’ briefing materials. These were a series of classified briefings and briefing books the FBI and DOJ provided key leaders in Congress in the summer of 2018 that identify shortcomings in the Russia collusion narrative. Of all the documents congressional leaders were shown, this is most frequently cited to me in private as having changed the minds of lawmakers who weren’t initially convinced of FISA abuses or FBI irregularities.

7.)   The Steele spreadsheet. I wrote recently that the FBI kept a spreadsheet on the accuracy and reliability of every claim in the Steele dossier. According to my sources, it showed as much as 90 percent of the claims could not be corroborated, were debunked or turned out to be open-source internet rumors. Given Steele’s own effort to leak intel in his dossier to the media before Election Day, the public deserves to see the FBI’s final analysis of his credibility. A document I reviewed recently showed the FBI described Steele’s information as only “minimally corroborated” and the bureau’s confidence in him as “medium.”

8.)   The Steele interview. It has been reported, and confirmed, that the DOJ’s inspector general interviewed the former British intelligence operative for as long as 16 hours about his contacts with the FBI while working with Clinton’s opposition research firm, Fusion GPS. It is clear from documents already forced into the public view by lawsuits that Steele admitted in the fall of 2016 that he was desperate to defeat Trump, had a political deadline to make his dirt public, was working for the DNC/Clinton campaign and was leaking to the news media. If he told that to the FBI and it wasn’t disclosed to the FISA court, there could be serious repercussions.

9.)   The redacted sections of the third FISA renewal application. This was the last of four FISA warrants targeting the Trump campaign; it was renewed in June 2017 after special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe had started and signed by then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. It is the one FISA application that House Republicans have repeatedly asked to be released, and I’m told the big reveal in the currently redacted sections of the application is that it contained both misleading information and evidence of intrusive tactics used by the U.S. government to infiltrate Trump’s orbit.

10.)  Records of allies’ assistance. Multiple sources have said a handful of U.S. allies overseas — possibly Great Britain, Australia and Italy — were asked to assist FBI efforts to check on Trump connections to Russia. Members of Congress have searched recently for some key contact documents with British intelligence. My sources say these documents might help explain Attorney General William Barr’s recent comments that “the use of foreign intelligence capabilities and counterintelligence capabilities against an American political campaign, to me, is unprecedented and it’s a serious red line that’s been crossed.”

The Disappearance of American Human Female Animal

I’ll be 85 next month.   I was raised by an American mother in St. Paul, Minnesota during the Great Depression and World War II.

My Father was the financial provider who loved my Mother and worked 48 to 54 hours a week managing a Liggett Drug Company Store downtown St. Paul.

Mothers were real mothers then.   Whether poor or not so poor,  they were the principal teachers, feeders, caretakers, problem solvers, and clothing makers for their off-spring, while the human male animal labored except on Sunday to keep the family fed, clothed, and housed together!

With the exception of Hollywood’s movie creatures, divorces rarely existed in our nation’s family homes then.   Reno, Nevada was too remote, too pricey, and the mood of American culture too overwhelming to destroy the JudeoChristian U.S.  family.

Nearly everyone in America was Godfearing in those days before the 1950s.

Death within our families was not uncommon.   My grandparents were dead before I was 13.   My grandpa, Frank Lawrence Ray was born in Cherryfield, Maine before our nation’s Civil War began.   He died from a horrible cancer in 1917.   Mom’s mom also died of cancer seven years before I arrived.  Yet, my German speaking Great Grandma Kraft,  was the last of our older generation to pass on, lucid to the very end  in 1948.   She was born in 1850.

It was in the 1960s America’s  females began to disappear as real Mothers.   Divorcing became easier.   Church was attended lesser.   Marriage became more and more meaningless.  It began to disappear.   The sexes began to change.   The American female began to leave motherhood for a career.   With the exception of some old fashioned Christian families,  she began to check her child into a ‘caring’ children’s  ‘home’, abandoning  Motherhood except for nights and Saturdays and Sundays.

There is a pretense today in America that there are no real differences anymore between male and female.   One is now “free” to select their sex….sexes, depending upon moods or types of ‘mothers’.   Is the She  really as equal to the HE, in our now feminized American military?    Are men and women of today really identical?  Are we that ignorant?

The American family has about disappeared.   The nation had become leftist in its persuasion.   One sex, free for all, everyone….except the Google, Amazon, and such, and the feminization of schools and universities and the Dem newspapers  rule the roost.

What does “Nature” have to say with all of this?

I am still in the landscape business.  Creating beautiful landscape gardens has been  my drug of choice since childhood.    I have lived on  a half acre the past 45 years artistically  planting and caring  for  countless trees and shrubs, all of which I have planted or are progeny of what I have planted creating  my Garden of Paradise.   Its paths are  both beautiful,  mysterious, tempting the visitor to explore further.

Few or  perhaps no human female animal is so driven.   Which leads to my lesson of this day I pass on to the female tolerant regarding a major difference between the human male, a natural warrior, builder, inventor, problem solver,  and the human female child producer, who in America no longer is her child’s real Mother!

Sorry, today’s leftist feminist fascists of all sexes.   There is a difference….countless differences, between the human female and human male animal!!!  I often use my garden as an example.    Suppose an adult female and I or most any adult male happen to be prowling not too far away  from each other in my Garden but alone.

Suppose a violent, terrifying,  lion-like animal roar is heard suddenly but unseen  by both visitors somewhat separated  in the garden.   What is the natural animal instinct of the human female and human male as animals?

Both become terrorized!    ONE AUTOMATICALLY SCREAMS AS POWERFULLY AS SHE CAN announcing she is in serious trouble and needs protection!

The other automatically shouts “Shut-up”, freezing as an animal he is  to gather  some reality, some Truth and consequences to what he just heard…..Should he  engage in fight,  flight, or freeze to protect and save the both if possible.

I don’t think today’s American college students and graduates have enough learnings to know some of the overwhelming differences between the human female and human male animal especially those automatic in the animals we are.

 

Dishonesty is a Lefty Fascist Talent. It Constricts Knowledge, Thought, Speech.

“Today’s world of communication in our USA, is overwhelmingly  in the hands of Leftists, ones of a more fascist kind.    They are very rich owning Amazon, the Washington Post, the New York Times,  CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, PBS, ABC, Bloomberg, etc….. nearly all of our American colleges and universities from coast to coast……countless schools selling lies about Christians being racists and primitive, Hillary’s deplorables,  farmers and city folks  who still work for a living…….

These rich leftists are interested in world order, the fascist kind they can rule over their masses!    But, the Obama Era for our Fascist  Future was stalled, interrupted by a New York businessman who still loves his country probably more than his structural successes.

Deceit is the Leftist Fascists’ primary weapon!  Billionaire Bezos’ Washington Post apparently sells it for profit, power, and politics.

Even Fox which advertises being “Fair and Balanced” sells lefty bags of lies, in their efforts to be “equal”…..yet knowing its a lie, in order to advance their coffers, their POWER!”  ghr

THE WASHINGTON POST LIES ABOUT A CONSERVATIVE JOURNALIST

Last week a reporter from the Washington Post, Rebecca Tan, emailed Katherine Kersten, a well-known journalist who works for my organization, Center of the American Experiment, asking to interview Katherine for an article she was writing. Per our usual practice, our communications director, Katie Fulkerson, called Ms. Tan to see what it was all about.

According to our recording of the conversation, Tan said that she was writing an article about local governments across the country who are taking on “racial equity initiatives.” Tan said that she already had submitted “a final draft to my editor” but was trying to “add a couple of perspectives before we move forward with it.” In other words, she had written her article and now was looking for a contrary view after the fact.

Katherine Kersten has written extensively on the baleful effects of race quotas in school discipline. We have seen such effects here in the Twin Cities: in one infamous case, a St. Paul public school teacher was attacked in his classroom by a young man who should have been suspended, and suffered traumatic brain damage as a result of the beating he sustained. Such instances, of which there have been many, if mostly not so severe, have understandably been of concern to Twin Cities residents. Kathy’s longest piece on this subject was published in City Journal.

Katie Fulkerson told Rebecca Tan that Katherine Kersten was not available for an interview, but provided this statement by Kathy:

In the St. Paul public schools, racial discipline quotas and an anti-suspension behavior modification program led to a dramatic increase in student violence. In 2015, a veteran teacher was hospitalized with a traumatic brain injury after being choked and body-slammed by a student. Teachers told the local newspaper the constant threats and chaos they experience made them fearful for their safety. Administrators must discipline violent students, or they jeopardize the environment that makes learning possible for every other student. Race shouldn’t be a factor at all in those decisions.

Tan completely ignored that statement, as well as Kathy’s writing on the subject generally. She produced an article for the Post (available to subscribers only) that is now popping up in newspapers around the country. A version that appeared in Beaumont, Texas is embedded:

The article is general and anodyne: it consists mostly of descriptions of cities that have enacted “equity” policies, and acknowledges that such policies have usually not come to much. Along the way, it drops in this reference to Katherine Kersten:

Equity efforts have also sparked explicit backlash in some places, including Minnesota, where conservative writer Katherine Kersten wrote that a push to investigate biases in student discipline records will bring “increased violence” to classrooms. The state education commissioner called Kersten’s arguments “flat-out racist.”

This is a lie. Kathy has never written that “a push to investigate biases in student discipline records will bring ‘increased violence’ to classrooms.” She has written that imposition of race quotas in student discipline, resulting in students who should have been suspended roving the halls of public schools, has resulted in “increased violence”–a statement that is 100% correct.

When our Communications Director saw the Post piece with its attack on Kathy as a “racist,” she fired off a heated response to reporter Tan and her editors:

Rebecca,

I demand an immediate correction to the news story here in which you took my colleague’s statement below completely out of context. Worse, you asked Minnesota’s education commissioner to comment on the out-of-context statement, which led her to call my colleague racist.

Here’s your paragraph:

Equity efforts have also sparked explicit backlash in some places, including Minnesota, where conservative writer Katherine Kersten wrote that a push to investigate biases in student discipline records will bring “increased violence” to classrooms. The state education commissioner called Kersten’s arguments “flat-out racist.”

Here’s Kersten’s statement:

In the St. Paul public schools, racial discipline quotas and an anti-suspension behavior modification program led to a dramatic increase in student violence. In 2015, a veteran teacher was hospitalized with a traumatic brain injury after being choked and body-slammed by a student. Teachers told the local newspaper the constant threats and chaos they experience made them fearful for their safety. Administrators must discipline violent students, or they jeopardize the environment that makes learning possible for every other student. Race shouldn’t be a factor at all in those decisions.

Kersten said nothing about “a push to investigate biases” and whether or not that would be a bad thing. She referred to a specific policy in a specific school that had already been implemented and reported on the effect of that policy.

Kersten did NOT say such a push to investigate biases would “bring increased violence” to classrooms. Again, she referred to a specific policy in a specific school and provided examples showing that the policy led to increased violence.

Kersten provided a very specific example and you not only left out important context to her comments, but recklessly broadened them.

You quoted Kersten incorrectly. Nowhere in the statement, or in the piece she wrote previously, does she say the phrase “increased violence.”

You left out the point Kersten was making, which is that “violent students jeopardize the environment that makes learning possible for every other student. Race shouldn’t be a factor at all in those decisions.”

This is horrible, biased reporting.

Again, I demand an immediate correction, or take the reference to Kersten out of the story altogether.

That is a very good email, especially considering that Katie was on vacation today. She later talked at length with one of the Post’s editors, who expressed the view that, because Kersten once used the phrase “increased violence” in an article, the quote was appropriate.

This is profoundly stupid, but consistent with what we expect from low-grade rags like the Post. Kathy did indeed use the phrase “increased violence,” but it was in reference to race quotas in school discipline, not “a push to investigate biases.” In fact, Rebecca Tan’s article has nothing to do with racial quotas in school discipline, and never mentions such quotas or the effects thereof. So importing Kathy’s “increased violence” phrase is utterly indefensible. It is as though I wrote, years ago, that “Afghanistan is experiencing increased violence,” and the Post wrote, “John Hinderaker wrote that electing Democrats leads to ‘increased violence.’”

So the bottom line is that the Washington Post reached out to Katherine Kersten for a comment on its article. They got a comment, but didn’t print a word of it. Instead, the Post took a whopping two words from a column Kathy wrote a year and a half ago, on a topic that was not the subject of the Post’s article. To add insult to injury, it added a quote from a far-left activist who called Kathy a “flat-out racist.”

I would say the Post’s reporting is a flat-out lie. I think Kathy may have a good lawsuit for defamation, given the Post’s blatant misreporting of her words. At a minimum, the Post owes her a correction. I will write to the Post’s “fact checker,” Glenn Kessler, and demand a fact check and an apology.

Mostly, though, this incident is a good reminder of why no one takes far-left “news” outlets like the Washington Post and the New York Times seriously. They lie. Consistently, every day.

 

The Washington Post Lies About a Conservative Journalist

Remember Crooked Hillary? Her Grease Advanced to Another Obama Mode!

MORE CLINTON EMAIL FUNNY BUSINESS

by John Hinderaker   at PowerLine:

On Wednesday, senators released the transcript of an interview with an investigator for the Intelligence Community Inspector General that included new revelations about Hillary Clinton’s illegal, off-the-books email system. The Daily Caller headlines: “Clinton IT Aide Who Defied Subpoena Says He Created A Cryptic Gmail Account And Sent It Nearly All Of Hillary’s Emails.”

I won’t attempt an exhaustive summary; for the details, which remain obscure, follow the link. These strike me as the highlights:

* Metadata for Clinton’s emails indicate that copies of all of them (with possibly four exceptions) were sent to “CarterHeavyIndustries@gmail.com.” This raises the possibility that Hillary’s 30,000 or so missing emails may still exist and be recoverable, but that strikes me as unlikely. More probably, whoever controlled that email account deleted them long ago.

* The guy who set up this fictitious email account is a crook:

The FBI says that the suspicious Gmail address was set up by an IT aide, Paul Combetta, who worked for a company that managed Clinton’s server. Combetta is the same IT aide who used BleachBit to permanently erase copies of Clinton’s emails after they were subpoenaed by the House, misled the FBI about it, and was given immunity from prosecution, all while asking for basic computing advice on Reddit.

Combetta refused to cooperate with the Department of Justice Inspector General and with the authors of the Senate report about his use of the cryptic email address. He previously pleaded the Fifth before Congress in September 2016 about his deletion of emails.

* The Intelligence Community Inspector General investigator who discovered the Carter Heavy Industries destination was Frank Rucker. It was his interview transcript that was released on Wednesday. Rucker thought the Carter Heavy Industries finding was potentially important, and passed it on to Peter Strzok, the FBI official who headed up the Hillary Clinton email investigation and–with a great deal more enthusiasm–the Trump/Russia hoax. “Strzok seemed uninterested and did not ask any followup questions,” according to Rucker. Well, of course not. From Strzok’s perspective, this was just one more damn thing he would have to cover up.

* The FBI as a whole, not just Strzok, was uncooperative, so ICIG did some research on its own:

Frustrated by the FBI’s attitude to a possible national security issue, ICIG McCullough and Rucker, the ICIG investigator, did basic research that found that a company with a similar name, Shandong Carter Heavy Industry Machinery Co., was based in Shandong, China, according to the Senate report. Shandong is a province that houses multiple schools where Chinese hackers allegedly study and infiltrate Western systems.

Is that coincidence significant? Probably not. The crook Combetta set up the Carter Heavy Industries Gmail account. There is no reason to think he was acting on behalf of the Chinese government, and if he were, he would have no reason to give the email account a name that would tie it to China.

That’s enough for now. We may never learn all the details of Hillary’s email frolic, but we probably don’t need to. What we know for sure is bad enough: she ignored statutes and State Department rules by creating a technically incompetent off-the-books email system that was easily vulnerable to penetration by foreign powers. She did this in order to evade the Freedom of Information Act and to keep secret matters relating to her job duties that the American people were entitled by law to know (and perhaps other things as well).

In the Obama administration, Clinton was no outlier. Other senior Obama officials did the same or similar things–Obama’s EPA head conducted official business using a private email account in the name of her dog–and President Obama himself was well aware of Hillary’s improper conduct. He emailed Hillary at her “secret” email address using an alias. The rank incompetence on display here is stunning.

 

More Clinton Email Funny Business

Hillary’s Anti-American Uranium Sales To Russia Make Big Noise!

Disturbing nuclear reports from Russia, a scare for Alaska … and Hillary Clinton’s uranium sales to Russia

by Monica Showalter   at  American Thinker

 

Two disturbing reports of nuclear explosions have been coming down hard from Russia.

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge reports:

Is Russia in the process of covering up a nuclear accident after a confirmed spike in radiation levels in the aftermath of a reported rocket engine explosion at a northern testing facility Thursday? Authorities confirmed the accident involved an “isotope power source for a liquid-fuelled rocket engine”.

Russia’s state nuclear agency has said five of its staff members were killed at a military testing site in northern Russia, reportedly when the liquid propellant rocket engine exploded during tests on a sea platform. Some reports say it may have involved a top secret weapon that was part of Moscow’s hypersonic arsenal. Russia is pursuing hypersonic missiles as a nuclear deterrent, as Putin himself has recently verbalized.

Other staff were being treated for serious burns after the accident; however, as Reuters reported, there’s a run on iodine (used to reduce the effects of radiation exposure) in the northern port cities of Arkhangelsk and Severodvinsk, near where the mystery accident occurred.

That was just one accident. An earlier one occurred a few days earlier at an arms depot:

Thursday’s mystery incident came two days after 16,500 people fled their homes when a separate immensely powerful series of blasts rocked an arms depot in Siberia, which had been caught in dramatic footage.

It’s tempting to look at this story as a local one, a story of the old Russian failure to be transparent in nuclear matters, something the Soviets were guilty of during the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of 1986 and in theit terrible nuclear accidents in Siberia and Kazakhstan. Don’t these guys ever learn? Does everything have to be a secret when the fallout is raining down on the citizens? It’s sad.

But actually, it’s something perhaps more disturbing: The accidents may be a sign of a let-the-chips-fall-where-they-may, balls-to-the-wall, reckless nuclear weapons expansion. Haste makes waste. And who the heck is threatening them, why do they need to do this? Why this nuclear expansion? This news comes not long after President Trump cancelled a nuclear weapons treaty with Russia because the Russians had ceased observing its agreements. Obviously, some kind of buildup seems to be the story. When buildups go fast, accidents happen. And that may well affect us, raising questions again about Hillary Clinton’s sales of uranium to the Russians back when she was Secretary of State during the Obama administration.

Note that in the Durden report, the Russians say the accident happened on a sea platform.

Sea platform? Like, sea warfare?

What a coincidence – the Russians just happen to have set up a floating nuclear plant that is scaring Alaska. Look at this KTUU local news report out of Anchorage, Alaska, done by the Associated Press the other, which hasn’t made the news in the Lower 48 yet:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A Russia-designed floating nuclear power plant has begun its journey through the Arctic this month causing concerns in Alaska.

Alaska Public Media reports that the 472-foot barge launched in St. Petersburg, Russia and will continue along the coast to the Bering Strait separating Alaska.

Russia officials say the plan is to dock the world’s first floating nuclear power plant at Pevek, Russia about 1,250 miles from Anchorage, Alaska.

Alaska advocates say they are concerned about potential radiation the barge could produce in the northwest region.

It is indeed scary, given that Russia is having nuclear accidents on its own territory. One doesn’t quite see the same delicateness of sensibility toward Alaska’s green priorities from the Russians as the greenies of Alaska might require. The other thing is, maybe the Russians wanted this to seem like a threat. If so, they succeeded.

Here’s a third thing that’s inevitably going to be raised from this: Was this Russian nuclear buildup and the new emerging threats coming to Alaska aided by all that uranium Hillary Clinton made available to them and their Kazakh allies, back when the uranium sales were approved? What became known as the Uranium One scandal involved 20% of the U.S. uranium supply approved for sale to Russia and its allies. While it’s true that U.S. uranium is not for export, there are ways of getting around export controls, and commodities can be quite fungible, which is why the export controls are there in the first place. Clinton sat on a board that signed off on the whole thing. Even if the aim wasn’t to get hold of uranium itself (Kazakhstan has oodles of it, they probably don’t “need” America’s), it’s also possible that the aim was to keep the U.S. from developing its nuclear capabilities in counterweight to a Russian rush toward more nukes, a plan to buy the assets and sit on them.

The news is sketchy for now, and the dots are not completely connected, but you can bet the CIA and National Security Agency are looking at this, and they should. The public though, should also be made aware that Russia is moving with some kind of breakneck speed to develop nukes, they’re making a mess, and they’re scaring Alaska now. Hillary Clinton’s uranium sales to the Russians during her term as Secretary of State might just have something to do with this very bad trajectory.

CJack: The DNC Racist Assault On America

The DNC racist assault on America….

The level of obscenities and false accusations launched against our duly elected 45th President, Donald J. Trump cannot go unchallenged. If our nation is to survive it most overcome the moral and spiritual decline brought about under Barack Obama; a man whose ascent to our highest office was celebrated by the ghosts of Sodom & Gomorrah.

Though Obama made clear his rejection of our nation’s founding values and ideals, only a few courageous religious leaders dared to publicly denounce his perverted agenda and treachery. Lamentably most of Conservative America remain in fear of being branded ‘racist’ even as as the nation’s pride and dignity is trampled by black racists, rappers, gays and other fringe elements assaulting on our duly elected government and our academic and religious institutions. This network of Obama radicals continues with impunity to attack our Judeo-Christian foundation and Constitutional order. ‘A nation divided cannot stand forever.’

….An example of fiscal turpitude by the Democrats…

The 94th United States Congress Sessions, First: January 14, 1975—December 19, 1975…Second: January 19, 1976—October 1, 1976.
Senate Majority…Democratic.
House Majority…Democratic.

“In 1975 the Democrat-controlled Congress retrofitted the elevators in the Capitol building to make them automatic; yet the same dimwitted Congress continued to spend the taxpayers’ money to pay salaries of elevator operators to operate the automatic elevators.”

Historically the Democrats have been known to stupidly spend the taxpayers’ money.

Since 1996 the loudmouth, empty-suit Baltimore bully Elijah Cummings (D) has represented Maryland’s 7th district with nothing notable to show. Yet President Trump has been called a racist by the corrupt and incompetent race hustlers Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D) and the NAACP for citing the deplorable social conditions in Elijah Cummings’ district.

We have had enough of the Democrats’ race card. The United States of America is not a racist nation…its white citizenry is not responsible for the social disrepair in the black community. Only a return of black America to its civic pride, self-discipline, adequate education and hard work will solve its social and economic problems. I ask, in fact, why have not the exceedingly wealthy blacks invested in the business development of the black community? Moreover, what has happened to black America’s powerful religious conservatives who defeated Jim Crow and the segregationist democrats in the South? Evidently the Democrats of this 21st century prefer to rule by partisan politics than by bipartisan edict.

The appointment of Robert Mueller as ‘special counsel’ to investigate our duly elected president about a “Trump-Russia collusion” based on a bogus “dossier’ of preposterous lascivious activities funded by Hillary Clinton and the DNC has to be the most scandalous incident of dirty politics perpetrated against our nation. Moreover, it should be embarrassing for the black community not to condemn the conspiracy of our first black president Barack Obama and his ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to overturn the legal election of Donald Trump to the White House. Have they failed to accept we are a nation of the people, by the people, for the people, as expressed in our Constitution? Shame on black America for not being color blind.

And let not the hypocrisy of the Democrats not to denounce the racial hatred and anti-American activities of all radical elements and organizations go unchecked. Let those who seek to destroy our forgiving and generous land be rejected by the ballot, or by the force of arms if necessary, to preserve our sacred union of free men and women.

….The Privileged Class…
We have allowed our elected congressional officials to become an incompetent and privileged class self-entitled to excessive benefits and privileges of rank that prevail over their collective responsibility; they have been permitted to function so above the law they have become a a nest of truants bent on increasing the nation’s financial burden on the backs of its taxpayers, the result of their incompetence and malfeasance has been the steady erosion of our founding values and ideals. Freedom requires infinite vigilance for it is neither free nor cheap.

II
…A Man Lost in Space…
‘Special counsel” Mueller failed to produce evidence of Trump’s misconduct or treason against the nation, but the left wing radicals in cahoots with the garbage-can networks CNN and MSNBC continue to promote the infamous “Steele Dossier” and the DNC preposterous “collusion” charge against our legitimate president.

Hillary Clinton lost the election because she had a long history of lies, corruption and deception. Still the ensuing torrent of irresponsible and malicious accusations Trump continues, tacitly endorsed by Putin’s mole Barack Obama and company; their propaganda aimed to sow mistrust in the integrity of our Constitution, its laws and legal processes.

Congressman Nadler’s show on Capitol Hill was “much ado about nothing.”

…The DNC and Black Racism…

I see the slate of the DNC presidential jackasses as nothing more than an ongoing caravan of ‘useful fools’ coached by the anti-American anarchist Barack Obama whose rhetoric disrespects President Trump and his cabinet. Licensed by our liberal networks and some news organizations, Obama has been empowered to accuse Trump of every sin under the sun; lamentably Conservative America for fear of being branded racist remain silent. So the morally bankrupt Democrats just go on dragging the nation through their acrimonious swamp.

No, America cannot be racist after electing Barack Obama to two terms in the White House. Yet, it’s the only card the black racists have always count on at the poker table. So why should our accidental ex-president Barack Hussein Obama not continue to steer his ‘allies’ against Trump until Conservative America surrenders? It is true the current speaker of the “House” is unable to impose order under the pressure of the ‘squad’ of racists women-of-color in the House, but what of Adam Schiff and other Jewish lawmakers who should have the courage stand up in defense of the Israeli government and Trump’s steadfast support of the Jewish nation? I have no room in my heart for Congressman Adam Schiff and his ilk.

…Sad Sack Mueller Couldn’t Hop Off the Fat Man’s Carousel…

It’s befuddling to see that the celebrated federal “lawman” Robert Mueller never looked into the Russian Atomic Agency’s donation of $145,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation following the Obama administration’s “Uranium One Deal” (signed, sealed and delivered by Hillary Clinton to Vladimir Putin). Instead, Obama’s ‘deep state’ operatives propagated the lie of a Trump-Putin collaboration to steal the election from the unprincipled Hillary Clinton.

…And please don’t forget the $500,000 speaker’s fee paid to Bill Clinton in Moscow by a Russian business group connected with the “Uranium One Deal”…

But the only one who seemingly expected a “Plan B” to contest his win over the prohibitive Hillary was our man Donald Trump who was prepared for the DNC’s no-stops war to invalidate his electoral victory; though the old elephants of the GOP had not a clue of the plot in motion to overthrow the newly elected president.

I tell you, the clown show orchestrated by that fathead Jerrold Nadler must have sunked the gaunt and already confused Robert Mueller III into a mental abyss typical of those suffering the initial symptoms of a progressive memory disconnect. The pitiful Mueller simply could not deliver the winning card the bloated Jerrold was expecting at the hearing. Poor Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall and broke into pieces.

So once again the ‘boys’ in the Kremlin were entertained by another circus performance on Capitol Hill; czar Vladimir and emperor Xi smiled, and the Mullahs in Tehran continued to enrich uranium waiting for their messianic Twelfth Imam (the “Hidden Imam” or the Mahdi) to liberate the world from evil. But In Israel, my Jewish brethren anxiously went about their affairs praying and hoping not to be abandoned by Washington knowing full well they can never count on the support of America’s left-wing Jews.

So I say, now is the time for Conservative America to demand a legitimate investigation by the US Senate to expose the unethical activities of Mueller and his team of investigators. High on the Senate’s list should be Mueller’s lead investigator Andrew Weissmann and his pro-Hillary investigators. Mueller’s erratic performance before the House Committee justifies a Senate investigation.

Who was really leading and conducting this symphony of lies against the President? We also must find out who wrote the final report because Sad Sack Mueller was so disoriented he couldn’t hop off the fat man’s carousel.

Fascistic Dems Drive to Change America Forever!

Democrats care more about helping illegal aliens than Americans

by Joseph Curl  at the Washington Times:

The  contrast is stark.

While President Trump is working daily to improve the economy, create good-paying jobs and solve pressing problems facing Americans, the biggest issue right now for Democrats running for president in 2020 is helping illegal aliens get into the United States to get services paid for by U.S. taxpayers.

Some candidates are literally going to Mexico to literally help foreigners literally cross the border.

Sen. Cory A. Booker, New Jersey Democrat, last week went into Mexico to help escort five female foreigners into the United States, according to Fox News. He crossed the El Paso, Texas, port of entry into Ciudad Juarez with several immigrant-rights attorneys to help the women get admitted into the U.S. after they had been sent back to Mexico.

It’s becoming a popular political stunt. In his first international trip as a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke of Texas also traveled to Ciudad Juarez to meet what his campaign called “individuals and families directly impacted by Donald Trump’s cruel and inhumane policies,” The Associated Press reported.
