Friday’s post provided background to the Russian dossier.

Today’s post looks at the memo from Senators Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsay Graham (R-South Carolina) about the dossier. A second version — less redacted — appeared on Tuesday, February 6.

First, this is the current state of play with FBI and DOJ employees involved with the dossier:

On December 7, 2017, Fox News had more on Bruce Ohr’s demotion (emphases mine):

Until Wednesday morning, Bruce G. Ohr held two titles at DOJ: associate deputy attorney general, a post that placed him four doors down from his boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein; and director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF), a program described by the department as “the centerpiece of the attorney general’s drug strategy.”

Ohr will retain his OCDETF title but has been stripped of his higher post and ousted from his office on the fourth floor of “Main Justice.”

Initially senior department officials could not provide the reason for Ohr’s demotion, but Fox News has learned that evidence collected by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), chaired by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., indicates that Ohr met during the 2016 campaign with Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the “dossier.” 

Also:

According to congressional sources, Simpson and Ohr met sometime around Thanksgiving last year, when President-elect Trump was in the process of selecting his cabinet, and discussed over coffee the anti-Trump dossier, the Russia investigation and what Simpson considered the distressing development of Trump’s victory.

How exactly Simpson and Ohr came to know each other is still being investigated, but initial evidence collected by the House intelligence committee suggests that the two were placed in touch by Steele, a former FBI informant whose contacts with Ohr are said by senior DOJ officials to date back to 2006.

A man by the name of Carter Page was used as the excuse to spy on Donald Trump. He very briefly volunteered for the Trump campaign but, contrary to what the media say, was not his foreign affairs adviser:

Christopher Steele, the former MI-6 spy, was responsible for that:

Steele was well known to the FBI:

Some at the FBI were heavily involved with Hillary Clinton’s campaign:

The Conservative Treehouse points out the the DOJ was only interested in this state of affairs when Inspector General Michael Horowitz found out (purple highlights mine):

Proving, once again, this is a well thought-out strategy, Chuck Grassley’s newest partly declassified version of the Graham-Grassley memo highlights the DOJ didn’t care about Bruce Ohr meeting with Christopher Steele until Inspector General Michael Horowitz found out.

Page #5 of the Grassley Memo (pg. 7 pdf), highlights the FBI interviewed DOJ Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr on November 22nd, and December 12th, 2016 [FD-302 Interview Notes], yet didn’t take any action about their discoveries until Inspector General Michael Horowitz found out and revealed the interviews on December 7th, 2017.

Based on what we know to date, the following tweets suggest how the dossier was most likely compiled:

Interesting:

But who is Cody Shearer?

Egads!

You could not make this up!

Conclusion:

Yes, indeed.

When I posted on the FISA memo last week, two of my readers asked questions about Christopher Steele, particularly why he is so anti-Trump.

I held off posting on this until now in the hopes that new information would surface about that. Unfortunately, it has not.

Christopher Steele

It is hard to say why Christopher Steele is so opposed to President Donald Trump.

It could be that is his mindset, given his work for and international involvement with security agencies.

In December 2017, Yoichi Shimatsu, a forensic journalist who was also an editor at The Japan Times for ten years, wrote an exclusive for Rense, ‘How A CIA-DOJ-FBI Team Forged The Trump-Russia Dossier’. It is worth reading. I haven’t included some of it, as there seems to be some questionable information about Steele. It is possible that parts that mention ‘Steele’ might be better worded as ‘people working for him’.

What follows is the story of how Steele ended up getting involved in the Russian dossier.

In 2006, Steele headed the MI-6 Russia desk. He retired in 2009 to co-found (emphases mine):

a for-hire investigative firm called Orbis Business Intelligence, which produced a series of 100 reports on the Ukraine-Russia crisis, which erupted in 2014, on contract with the U.S. State Department. In other words, the main author of the Trump-Russia Dossier had a lucrative contract under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before her presidential campaign.

Shimatsu tells us that Steele might well have met Bruce Ohr, another player in the Trump surveillance scheme, in 2010, when investigating the FIFA scandal. (More about Ohr below.) The FBI went to London for an Orbis briefing on the scandal:

As chief of the DOJ international organized crime bureau, Bruce Ohr likely attended the London briefing, where he would have been first introduced to veteran spy Christopher Steele.

Shimatsu claims that Ohr and Steele met again in 2013. At that time, Ohr was Assistant Deputy Director at DOJ and presented a paper at the third St. Petersburg International Legal Forum:

The Korean-American Ohr presented a paper titled “Criminal Matters and Allegations of Crimes in International Arbitration”, a choice of topic timed to undermine Russian counter-claims in the Magnitsky affair. In hindsight it’s ironic that his lecture synopsis included an apt description of the yet to-be drafted Russia Dossier: “a party (in a dispute) may introduce false testimony or forged documents.”

Moscow and Washington were butting heads over the Magnitsky affair when the conference, sponsored by the Russian Federation’s Justice Ministry:

the Kremlin was locked in a controversy over U.S. congressional retaliation for the 2009 prison death of Russian-Jewish accountant Sergei Magnitsky.

(The Magnitsky Act was signed into US law in 2012.)

Before he was imprisoned, Magnitsky worked for Hermitage Capital, which Bill Browder co-owns. Magnitsky worked as an auditor for the firm:

investigating dozens of Russian tycoons allied with President Vladimir Putin as to their links with organized crime figures.

Ohr had a similar interest, as chief of the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section, in shady businessmen suspected of money laundering. His job also involved tracking international drug trafficking.

Shimatsu says that Steele was in Russia for the conference in St Petersburg, but is there any corroboration for that? See Glenn Simpson’s testimony to the House Intelligence Committee at the end of this post. According to Simpson, Steele had not been in Russia for 17 years. That would tie in with citizen journalists researching when he worked in Moscow: between 1990 and 1992. It is unclear whether he travelled there or was even allowed to enter the country at some point during that time and/or afterwards.

This brings in another Trump surveillance person into the mix, Carter Page. Ohr’s:

cyber-surveillance network would later focus, outside of its authority, on the activities of Trump adviser Carter Page in Russia and Croatia.

The next event, also in 2013, was the Miss Universe Pageant. Donald Trump was the head of the pageant at that time. As US intelligence agencies cannot spy on American citizens abroad, Steele’s — or was it his company’s? — assignment was to make sure the Russian mafia was not involved in skewing the results:

As it turned out, Miss Venezuela was crowned Miss Universe 2013, meaning Ohr had wasted a lot of American taxpayer money on a wild goose chase.

However, something more significant resulted:

That dated information from 2013 was recycled three years later into the Russia Dossier.

In 2016, Steele became involved in compiling the Russian dossier. Before getting to that part, let’s look at Bruce and Nellie Ohr.

Bruce Ohr

Until recently, Bruce Genesoke Ohr was unknown to the American public, including the media. He worked in the inner sanctum of the Robert F. Kennedy Building, the DOJ headquarters:

on the executive 4th floor, just four doors down from the suite of then Deputy Director Sally Quillian Yates, and since late April her replacement Rod Rosenstein … Ohr served as the assistant to Rosenstein, following the latter’s transfer from the Maryland DOJ office, showing the newcomer the ropes and keeping watch on him on behalf of Yates, Loretta Lynch, Holder and, ultimately, Barack Obama and the Clintons. 

He lost his associate deputy attorney general title on December 7, 2017.

Also note:

Ohr, in short, is a partisan watchdog for the Democratic establishment, who’s shown absolutely no respect for the Constitution.

Even worse, Shimatsu asserts that Ohr was partly responsible for the corruption at the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), because that agency was under the authority of the International Organized Crime Drug office, which he was still in charge of until January 8, 2018:

The DOJ has also ignored nearly the entire CIA-run Afghan drug importation, at least since the Eric Holder years. Cocaine, of course, is being targeted by the DEA/DOJ, but that elite-status drug was never in style with the millennial generation, which prefers depressants like heroin mixed with synthetic opioids, on the path to Nirvana.

In July 2001, Ohr testified to the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, downplaying the infiltration of Indian reservation casinos by organised crime:

What Ohr completely failed to mention is how Indian casinos along the U.S.-Mexico border were becoming money-laundering centers for the Mexican mafia, lucrative enough for the Caesar’s team of Drexel Lambert junk-bond dealer to build a Harrah’s casino resort at Rincon reservation. Caesar’s Entertainment Group spectacularly collapsed two years ago, amid angry charges by institutional investors of fraud, financial crimes on a much greater scale than small-time gangster scams.

Ultimately:

The politically correct attitudes toward ethnic minorities, here again, has enabled massive expansion of the organized crime, which is ultimately detrimental to the minority groups to achieve genuine economic development and security from violence. The DOJ/FBI, run by front-men for crime, is [a] big part of the problem and not the solution.

Also:

That exactly is why and how the DOJ/FBI and CIA are enabling Chinese triads, the Taiwanese mob, Vietnamese mafia, Japanese yakuza and Korean gangsters to run heroin smuggling, prostitution rings and counterfeits products unimpeded into the United States. The fix is in with the Democratic Party, and the bad guys every hour of every day are winning the battle against the industrial economy and ethical principles of the USA.

Now to the 2016 campaign. Shimatsu tells us:

the DNC and Hillary campaign generously forked over up to a half-million dollars for the Trump-Russia fabrication.

Shimatsu explains something interesting about southeast Asians and the Democrats and why big donations are kept quiet:

the Democratic Party relies so heavily on large unreported donations of cash from the urban Chinese and Korean business communities, suspect Asia-based businessmen and major crime groups. This tradition since the end of the Chinese Exclusion era is a feudal tribute legacy, by which Asian “leaders” (triad or organized crime figures) pay protection money (aka bribery) to Democrat politicians to enable illegal immigration of underpaid laborers, exemption from minimum wage laws and mandatory benefits for employees, unhealthy tenant crowding of buildings, and police neglect of the illicit trade in contraband, including methamphetamines, heroin and more recently synthetic opioids.

Asians, of course, are not alone in groveling before the powers that be, since most immigrants have had to pay their dues to Tammany Hall and dirty cops, from the Irish to the current wave of Arabs. Despite their strong academic performance, East Asians are perpetually under the Democratic Party heel due to the substandard status of the small-business economy. That is changing, for all the wrong reasons, with the pay-for residency by super-wealthy “businessmen” from East Asia, many of them wanted for economic crimes at home, including illicit capital flight. The United States is a sanctuary for Asian fraudsters and gangsters

Nellie Ohr

As for Bruce’s wife Nellie, Shimatsu says nothing about her father. Her mother, Kathleen Armstrong Hauke, was active in leftist causes in the 1960s. In the 1980s, Hauke taught English in Nairobi, Kenya. She died in 2004.

Nellie has a ham radio licence, which Shimatsu says isn’t that unusual:

Shortwave radio hearkens back to the late Cold War era, when Nellie would have monitored Russian signals for the CIA. Since that Stone Age for telecommunications, Nellie Ohr became part of the CIA cyber-intelligence program known as Open Source Works (OSW), discussed below, which explains her intelligence role inside Fusion GPS, the private investigation group that hired Orbis and Christopher Steele to draft the Trump-Russia Dossier.

Until late 2017, she and her husband shared the same office, indicating that the Ohrs were:

part of a high-level inter-agency intelligence team.

The Ohrs, Steele and the dossier

Shimatsu winds the clock back to 2013 to the St Petersburg conference. However, was it Steele himself or an Orbis representative who attended? Donald Trump arrived in Russia one month later in advance of the beauty pageant:

What a tangled web they weave! The Ohr-Steele encounter in St. Petersburg turned out to be the very seed from which sprang the Trump-Russia Dossier Just a month later, in June 2013, Donald Trump arrived with his advance team to make the arrangements for the Miss Universe pageant, scheduled for November 2013 at the Crocus hall in the Moscow suburb of Krasnogorsk.

Fast forward to 2016 and Fusion GPS:

the private investigation firm led by three former Wall Street Journal reporters …

… in mid-2016, the Seattle law firm Perkins Coie, representing the Hillary Clinton Foundation and Democratic National Committee, hired Fusion GPS to probe the Russian relationships of Trump and his associates with the aim of discrediting and defeating his presidential campaign …

Fusion GPS, therefore, was hired as a “cut out”, spy terminology for a neutral go-between created to shield the actual perpetrators in an exchange of stolen information. A psychological operation aimed at political intervention at this level required the direct involvement of and authorization from CIA director John Brennan and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and this was to interfere in the elections in favor of their former colleague at State, Hillary Clinton, and not a matter of national security. Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper should have been aware of these illicit activities and was responsible for shutting down political subversion, meaning that he, too, bears some degree of responsibility for the bureaucratic assault on democracy.

Do readers notice how anti-Trump Brennan and Clapper are whenever they are interviewed on television? YouTube has various videos of them on news programmes and at conferences.

With regard to the dossier, Shimatsu says that Steele provided little of the content. Most of the content:

strongly appears to be based on CIA and NSA intercepts of phone calls and emails, along with human intelligence from informants. There is also an equally strong possibility that many, perhaps most, of the claims in the dossier are fabrications, lies. Nellie Hauke Ohr and her husband at DOJ reviewed and copied from classified files for the dossier in blatant violation of intelligence regulations. The method of direct translation, for example, “Russian regime” without the article “the”, indicates the CIA protocol followed by Nellie Ohr in radio intercepts. The tiny lapse shows that source is not Moscow but Langley, Virginia.

Shimatsu explains the role of Steele and his company, Orbis:

The notes from CIA and DOJ/FBI classified files, which Nellie Ohr compiled during her several months, during summer and autumn 2016, on the payroll of Fusion GPS while in Washington D.C.. Those materials were then “laundered” through Orbis for plausible deniability at the CIA. Fusion GPS paid the London-based firm more than $160,000, meaning the total budget for consultants, services, travel and communication was probably about a half-million dollars from the original source of funding (prior to DNC-Hillary, which was probably provided by a slush fund at the Clinton Foundation. To the heisted CIA material and forged information, Christopher Steele added his recollections from Donald Trump’s Miss Universe visits in 2013, supplemented by whatever hearsay picked up immediately after the contest. Examination of the dossier is similar to the findings from a forensic autopsy on Frankenstein’s monster: A lot of body parts that don’t fit together, laced together and patched with putty.

Nellie Ohr’s inchoate and disorganized editing, in contrast to the minimal standards at any daily newspaper, reveals the sloppiness that’s the norm at her post inside the CIA bureau known as Open Source Works, which itself is highly classified and anything but open

In summary:

Open Source is now the major enterprise of the CIA in its effort to intimidate world leaders, corporate executives, military officers and media personalities. The Trump-Russia Dossier is an end-product of illicit CIA privacy violations, enhanced by selective editing and outright fabrication to incriminate the victim, in this case the President of the United States. The Frank Church amendments need to be upgraded to deal with terror by fake media, so that the offending bureaucrats and their political patrons can be locked away without access to cyberspace.

Present day

On January 22, 2018, just over a month after Shimatsu’s article was published, the New York Post had a report about the testimony to the House Intelligence Committee from Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS:

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) asked Steele’s Clinton-paid handler Glenn Simpson, during the House Intelligence Committee’s Nov. 14 closed-door hearing, if Steele had gone “to Russia as part of this project,” to which Simpson replied, “No, sir.” Steele, at the time he compiled the dossier, hadn’t been back to Russia in 17 years.

If true, that clearly contradicts what Shimatsu alleges.

Simpson told the House Intelligence Committee that Steele:

ran a “network of subsources or subcontractors” who traveled around Russia and gathered information for him.

As for the framework of the dossier:

it turns out the primary subcontractor worked not for Steele but for Simpson at Washington-based Fusion GPS, and he contributed key material for the investigation of Trump underwritten by the Clinton campaign. 

Steele’s reputation preceded him:

Simpson says he completely deferred to Steele’s expertise and did not question his findings because of his “sterling reputation.” Simpson has pumped this guy up to be the real-life 007 so deep inside the Kremlin, he didn’t have to corroborate his information, yet Steele was so far out of the hunt, his tradecraft so rusty, he apparently had to rely on a Russian translator who flacked for Putin to gather his so-called intelligence.

These latest revelations make it all the more baffling that the FBI took Steele so seriously. They also suggest the public should not make that mistake.

Since then, a redacted version of Senator Charles Grassley’s memo on the dossier has been made public. More on that next week.

Brendan Dilley is a Congressional candidate in Arizona and YourVoice™ America Co-host.

He receives intelligence messages from a source he keeps anonymous. Dilley’s Twitter account has many positive messages about life. His Periscopes have the intel data.

Someone on 8chan watches the videos then summarises the content. I’ve read this intel several times over the past few days and found it interesting enough to share. The source page is here.

Part 1 covers excerpted drops from January 17 through January 27, 2018.

Part 2 covers intel from January 29 through February 1.

Today’s post covers February 2 and February 3. I have covered these in the order the 8chan contributor did. Not everything is in precise chronological order, but that won’t matter when you read the content below. Excerpts follow (along with correction of a few typos), emphases mine.

My one caveat is that the penalty for sedition is probably not the death penalty, as the intel source says. Treason, however, does carry the death penalty. No matter, I’ve left the text as is. We’ll see.

The Nunes FISA memo was released on Friday, February 2. This has tremendous implications:

Dilley AM Periscope, 2.2.2018, Reading of the Memo

It’s one thing to have conjecture about treason. It’s one thing to report of treason. It’s another to have it come from the House Intelligence Committee, and this is the very first memo.
Who knew what was going on?
Yates, Comey, McCabe, obviously Steele, Preistrap, Strzok, Rosenstein…
This is the beginning—this points 100% that Obama knew. All Obama’s people, they all knew.
This makes Watergate look like a parking ticket.
McCabe knew, Strzok knew, Comey knew—they got Comey’s signatures on this stuff.
They’re all going down.
They have names of reporters who were propagating this fake news. The goal was to make sure Trump never became President.
They all knew.
And people wonder why there’s going to be Military Tribunals, why there’s 13,000 sealed indictments now, if you go look on Pacer.
They’re screwed.
The MSM is going to try to downplay it. It won’t work. It’s too late.
Hillary Clinton is mentioned in there. They’re all in there. Unbelievable.

After reading the memo and just prior to signing off, Dilley got some intel that he shared:
Sedition = death penalty.
RICO = life in prison
Which category is top tier?
That’s right, sedition, hanging time.
Sessions will talk to POTUS shortly.
Sessions can now unrecuse himself and kill Special Counsel and instruct Gowdy and NEP to start the ball rolling.
Storm is here, and it’s beautiful.

I’ll add; “Wow!”

On February 3, Dilley gave an update:

There are 9 total memos. Dilley believes only 4 will get released.
Memo #5 states…Obama’s Daily Briefings (top secret), which he passed on to Hillary, with daily updates on Trump’s campaign via the wiretap. So HRC got all the intel of BHO’s DB’s on the wiretaps of Trump along with OTHER intel updates. SEDITION!
The content of the wiretaps is amazing. They, the O admin, were passing top secret intel to people who had no security clearance to read it.
OIG report is a shocker. Still being compiled. No date when will be released. It goes back ‘really far’.
Gallo[w]s being built.
Uranium One section in Iran is beyond comprehension.
FYI, RICO cases have no statute of limitations. There will be at least one if not 2 very large cases.
Media is complic[i]t.
In the FOIA release of HRC emails last night proves the daily briefings …

sedition = death penalty
rico = life in prison
which category is top tier? that’s right, sedition…hanging time …

The chap on 8chan added a note:

(My note: earlier it was posted that Dilley’s source said Gowdy and [NE]P were ready to roll. Dilley actually spelled it out tonight and specifically stated NEP)

Someone on 8chan said that NEP could stand for National Economic Prosecutor, however, no one was able to find any such post. I also searched but couldn’t find it. We shall see.

The 8chan contributor returned to a fuller drop from Dilley’s source dated February 2, most of which follows:

FISA memo. MSM downplaying significance, trying to pretend one-off memo saying it only covers a small window of people.
Memo a product of nearly a million documents.
Memo product of hundreds of hours of testimony.
Memo is smoking gun.
Unequivocally states that Comey, McCabe, Susan Rice, Yates, Priestap, etc., used the Steele fake dossier, planted in Yahoo news, they then took the dossier and the Yahoo article and took it to the FISA court.
The FISA court gave them the warrant to tap the phones of the Trump campaign.
This is not the full scale of it.
Not easy to get FISA warrant. Very difficult. Have to be a foreign actor doing intelligence, they think you’re a spy, to get FISA warrant.
This means FBI conspired with Obama admin and HRC campaign to spy on US citizens who were running for office.
This is called a coup.
This is how you take over an entire country and usurp democratically elected government.
This is treason.
This is sedition.
This will get everyone who’s on that thing h[anged], that’s the penalty. No getting locked up for this.
You signed that thing, you signed your fate.
Obama had this information, he was complicit in this.
Don’t let the media fool you.
This is one of many—there are more memos coming out.
Backed up by hundreds of hours of testimony, millions of pages of documents, black and white.
This is history you’re seeing, the media is complicit and they know it.
The State Dept. has a memo coming out against them.
His one was the FBI/DOJ memo that showed they conspired.
You weaponize the Intelligence Community (IG) and your law enforcement community, the top, to fix an election.
This is something you would see in third world countries, not in the USA.
This is what you get shot for in front of a firing squad.
This is how you literally usurp 340 million people and the will of those people, and you plug in who you think should be the next president.
It’s way worse than many of you guys probably realize.
Get the word out, intel coming in a moment you won’t see ANYWHERE ELSE.
This is huge. Intel coming straight from the top (remember that when you’re voting) …
Memo #5, a nu[ke] about to drop on you guys, memo #5 states: “Obamas daily briefings [Top Secret], which he passed to Hillary, with daily intel updates on Trump’s campaign via the wiretap.” Along with other information.
This is called SEDITION.
This is what you would get h[anged] for in the USA.
This is the highest level of crime that you can actually perpetrate, aside from treason, which Obama will have an opportunity to face those crimes as well.
Especially when you guys find out about the weapons and everything else.
But we’ll stick to the topic at hand.
This dude was literally, illegally sp[ying] on a candidate for the Presidency of the United States
They took that information that they were spying on him about.
And passed it to another candidate in that race.
Even if they believed their nonsensical lie that they thought President (Candidate) Trump was actually a Russian spy, well, that whole narrative goes out the window when the next memo comes out and shows they were passing information to that political candidates opponent.
Now you’re done. Dead in the water.
Now you have broken so many laws that it’s not even funny.
This is why Obama lawyered up, why McCabe lawyered up, why Comey lawyered up, they’re all lawyering up.

It seems Dilley’s source is referring to the Grassley memo from the Senate, a post about which will follow.

The next drop from February 2 went over the above material but in slightly more detail. Dilley’s source also said that Senator John McCain (R-Arizona and presidential candidate in 2008) is in trouble:

Dilley Intel Drop, 2.2.18 PM, via Facebook PART 2

The content of the wiretap is amazing. Can only share this one portion, not cleared to do the rest yet.
Touches on people without clearance involved and being shown top secret intel.
They were passing along the most sensitive intelligence that you can receive in government and they were allowing average Joes with no security clearance to read it.
This other part is really bad. Cannot read it yet (aroused anger) but it will give you the most respect for the President of the United States.
Inspector General (IG) Report. Unbelievable, it’s going to take a while, not confirmed when it will be released, but it’s a shocker. Gallows being built. Uranium One section in Iran stuff is beyond comprehension. This is what source telling Dilley.
It goes back really far.
As said before, you will be facing/observing is going to be military tribunals for those at the top, because treason and sedition are punishable by death, and that is not to be tried in a normal, everyday courtroom.
That is to be tried in a military courtroom.
However, also mentioned 13,600 sealed indictments now, of which we don’t know ho[w] many people that actually is.
There will be multiple RICO cases.
Why is that significant?
Fun fact about a RICO case: there is no statute of limitations.
So if you broke the law, part of organized crime, back in 1975, and the evidence is found in 2018, you’re getting charged.
You can’t out run a RICO case.
In a RICO case, you can be sentenced, maybe not to death, but life imprisonment.
We’re going to have a really big RICO case. Probably two of the[m], maybe more.
This is organized crime.
Media is complicit.
[Dilley covered some information specific to the AZ Dist 8 Congressional race he’s in.]
McCain has got major problems.
There’s a reason he’s not be in public in two months.
Five of the memos you won’t ever get (raw intelligence), and you won’t really need them.
The four you will get will be the breakdown of this whole mess. These will suffice …
Don’t let anyone tell you that that memo that came out today wasn’t significant. You’ve got to start paying attention
They have evidence that, not only did they weaponize the IC, they also weaponized the Judicial Branch. They weaponized judges, just so we’re clear. And there’s actual evidence.
That’s way they (Dems/MSM/GOPe) are trying to downplay this. They are freaking out.
This is how you end up with a banana republic.
Been saying for nine months, the only way to save this country is with law and order, restore law and order.
The rule of law must be established and respected or your country will fall apart.

The 8chan contributor ended his post with this:

[There was a Dilley Periscope that aired just prior to this that I didn’t listen to, but I was told by a friend that this podcast covered it all.]

Dilley made a Periscope before the FISA memo was published on February 2. A few points concern the public mistakenly becoming emotionally involved with certain personalities they deem to be good guys. Dilley’s source says it is not a good idea to do this, because we might end up being disappointed when the truth emerges.

Before I go into the pre-FISA memo drop, on January 23, the intel source advised — and this is well worth keeping in mind:

Get away from Paradigm on who is “Good vs Bad”… find out who can get leveraged.

I read a lot of online questions elsewhere about ‘black hats’ and ‘white hats’. There are some of both hats that we have surmised from the outset. However, there are a lot of ‘grey hats’, too: people who agree to be leveraged to save their families from harm or to preserve their reputations. Washington DC is not an environment for ‘good’ and ‘bad’ in terms of a moral compass. People work there because they are ambitious or because they have connections. A lot of people in DC can be compromised. Others switch sides when money or a better position comes along. For the most part, they are not like the rest of us. DC has a dirty atmosphere, a stench, about it. Many years ago, I spent a week there, met many people just out of university who worked there, and I hated it. The only nice part about my holiday visit was meeting up with a former classmate of mine. I’m not sure he was cut out for that atmosphere, either. That was the last time I ever heard from him, so I don’t know what happened.

Now onto the intel source’s advice from February 2, before the FISA memo was made public:

Detailed Dilley Intel Drop, 2/2/18, Pre-Memo Early AM Periscope
“#HappyMemoDay w/Congresional Candidate Brenden Dilley”
https:// twitter.com/Hublife/status/959450833850064897
(Part 1)

Summary: Late to this party. Some Anons have dropped later FB streams. No new INTEL in this older post, just a lot of review and insight. IMHO, End is some valuable insight for Q followers …

The left has played directly into Trump’s hands AGAIN!
Trump “lets this build” & “CREATES EVENTS” (Must-See TV)
Americans – “It’s not about politics anymore” “We want the truth” “enough is enough”
The (Deep State) Objective was to “change the narrative” the other with the train station, but that only lasted only for a few hours because they weren’t successful.
About Trey Gowdy and Christopher Wray: This isn’t “Days of Our Lives” don’t get caught up or emotionally invested in characters in this movie. The only person you should be watching is POTUS.
(Dilley personally believes) Trey Gowdy has very important role in all of this LATER, and that’s why he stepped down.
But once you started getting emotionally attached to people in this story, you start having a hard time accepting new information or even accepting THE TRUTH
This is one of the risks of getting emotionally vested (mockingly – “But I liked him :(“)
Let the information come to you and then let the truth “rise to the top” and who gives a damn about personality.
“THIS IS WHY THE LEFT IS SCREWED UP (in the head) RIGHT NOW”
Think about how emotionally invested they became in Obama.
I don’t think the LEFT doesn’t want the truth. They just don’t know what to do with that information.
If you find out that the character you’ve elevated in your household is a treasonous scumbag, what does that mean about you? (self-identity loss)
You do this with actors/athletes as well – stop
It’s important that everybody be really patient …
Reviewed the previous drop that FBI/CIA being completely broken up and “Done”
FBI will be rebranded as something totally different because of how pervasive he corruption is
CIA has quietly been absorbed as part or underneath the NSA
Part of what’s going on even if you go back to the “Snowden stuff”, the CIA didn’t like the threat that the NSA Posed – technologically, financially, & influentially. This is part of what went with the Snowden situation.
Reiterates Bill Binney is a hero,
Snowden is CIA, went to NSA, tried to bring them down for what they were doing, back and forth.
Dilley has to continue reiterating “I am not Q. Just a guy who likes to problem-solve & people like to talk to me”
Periscope keeps asking who is ‘good’ vs ‘bad’, Brenden Dilley responds “it’s not that simple”
John Brennan is “awful”. He droned American Citizens illegally.
He has a major problem & a lot of dirt on him.
Periscope asks ‘Why are all these corrupt people still working?’
Dilley responds: “You don’t really know anything.”
“When you see Strzok or Page working at the FBI, what if you care that he’s cleaning the latrine?”
One of the most effective ways, until you’re ready to execute your plan, to keep from being attacked, is allowing your enemy to believe that they’re safe. So you keep them under your thumb wherever they’re working.
All the misdirection is done to keep people safe. There’s people whose lives are on the line with this entire deal. Operators who you will never know have their lives on the line doing this.
The value of disinformation is in keeping people safe.
The White Hats lie to keep people safe. The black hats like to try to cause chaos. Unfortunately you have to use deception, that’s the name of intelligence. Keeps people safe and off of the trail of where your interests actually are.

The 8chan contributor continued a summary of the Periscope in a second comment, wherein Dilley explained his hesitance to release some of the intel he received late last year:

“#HappyMemoDay w/Congresional Candidate Brenden Dilley”
https:// twitter.com/Hublife/status/959450833850064897
(Part 2)

You’ve got to be okay with the fact that you’re going to be lied to by people. No choice.
You’re going to be lied to by good ppl. Dilley acknowledges that they lie to him.
“I had to willfully enter into this situation knowing looking I could look like a collossal idiot because they might use me for disinformation. I had to consider that – that they might use me. Cause I had a brand & a certain level of credibility that I was afraid to put on the line with this stuff which is why I kept a lot of -“
I kept a LOT of information in November and December back
An average Joe would’ve probably released everything, but when you have a public brand like Dilley – life coach, talk show host, congressional candidate, it’s risky because you could end up with egg all over your face and ruin everything that you’ve tried your whole life to build.
“Part of the anxiety of all of this is that they might use me for disinformation to keep people safe, but it might end up destroying my credibility which is something I obviously don’t wanna do – I’ve worked very hard to be someone that people could trust and believe in” …
At the end, Dilley took the risk to do this because he had faith in his critical thinking to discern intel from disinfo.
I believe my source is legit, but what I believe in more than my source being legit, is my ability to recognize true information.”
“I know how to sniff out BS”
And I’m still trying to… no one is infallible.
If you don’t believe Dilley, look at the outcome over the last year…
The end of CNN, MSM, everyone’s credibility has been destroyed…
Even the early new media 2017 characters on the MAGA side who broke “HUGE” stories and then crumbled. Then a new character came into view because HE drops a huge story, everyone follows him, then HE crumbles. You’ve seen this over and over – the build-up and destruction of new characters on Twitter/Social media. That’s because none of these guys realized that they were being used.
They thought – oh “I’m going to keep dropping this intel because they’re going to ALWAYS gonna give me good information.” – WRONG

There is a final part to this Periscope, again, on the same topic, with an ending about Q and how valuable the Socratic method is to thinking and our personal makeup. It is much better to muse on questions and do research than to always be told something. What if we disagree with it? Isn’t it better to come up with answers based on evidence. That is where Q has done such a great job. Dilley explains that his source tried the same thing:

Dilley states that his source sometimes does the “cryptic Q messages” and Dilley replied “Nah Bro! You wanna deliver Q messages, go take that nonsense over to the Q boards and they can break it down, cause obviously, it’s good information, but I’m not that guy. Don’t give me the information that way.
Q Drops/Socratic method is very effective way of educating people.
Once the slow drip of breadcrumbs start to make sense, it’s an effective way of penetrating the brainwashing.
Once you’ve breadcrumbed people with logic, it can break through the emotional brainwashing. It works, it’s smart.

Tomorrow’s post has the last of the intel from Dilley’s source thus far, from Monday, February 5.

This post is part of a series about expected news items in 2018. Readers who have not seen the first two posts might find them of interest:

Part 1: hate in Washington DC

Part 2: Hillary WAS supposed to win (The 16 Year Plan to Destroy America)

Part 3: FBI’s missing texts

Part 4: ‘secret society’ and more on missing FBI texts

Today’s post is related to all of the above. It concerns the release of the Devin Nunes FISA memo on February 2, 2018.

Representative Devin Nunes (R-California) is the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).

His four-page memo concerns FISA warrants allowing surveillance of President Donald Trump and several others.

Democrats and media want one-party state

Before going into the content of the memo, what everyone around the world heard this weekend on media outlets has been an onslaught of anti-Republican and anti-Trump thought.

This is because — as I said in Part 2 — Donald Trump was patently not supposed to have won the 2016 election:

A firestorm of protests and objections to Trump ran from the day after the election to the present. Even former attorney general Loretta Lynch got involved early in 2017:

The blurb for the video reads:

The Obama administration’s former Attorney General Loretta Lynch has made an impassioned video plea for more “blood” and “death” on the streets – a video that was later posted on the Facebook page of Senate Democrats as “words of inspiration.”

There are some big players behind the move for the one-party state, and many people who ally themselves with the Democrats have been persuaded that this is for the common good. However, based on this memo — and the Democrats’ clear disdain for the American people as seen at the State of the Union address — that might not play out:

Tucker Carlson (Fox News) interviewed Representative Eric Swalwell (D-California) the evening of the memo’s release. Swalwell suggested that Carlson, in defending the memo’s release, was doing Vladimir Putin’s work. Absurd:

The Nunes — FISA — memo

The Nunes — or FISA — memo is four pages long and has no footnotes. A two-page letter from the White House states the president approves of its release. Both are on Scribd and PDF.

Here is a big picture overview of the background to the memo (courtesy of The_Donald):

This image from 8chan has additional information, equally important:

Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch describes the scenario in a nutshell:

This graphic is helpful in understanding what happened when:

Also involved is a man named Carter Page, who was briefly and peripherally involved with the Trump campaign. He was the gateway for the surveillance. Anyone he spoke to on the campaign was automatically surveilled.

The Federalist has a short, concise summary of what is in the memo. Excerpts follow from ‘The 7 Biggest Bombshells In The House Intel Memo On FISA Abuses’, emphases mine outside of the headings:

1. FBI Used News Articled Sourced By Steele To Corroborate His Dossier

The memo, which President Trump agreed to declassify Friday, states that the FBI did not tell the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) a lot of crucial information about the dossier it was citing as evidence when the bureau sought a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor Page.

In September 2016, ex-British spy Christopher Steele–who compiled an infamous dossier filled with unfounded claims about President Trump–told Yahoo News about Page’s visit to Moscow. Yahoo News subsequently published a story about this trip. The FBI then cited this Yahoo News report, sourced entirely by Steele, as evidence in its initial FISA warrant application to corroborate information the ex-British spy compiled in his dossier. The FBI incorrectly asserted to the court in its application that Steele did not provide information to Yahoo News about Page’s Moscow trip. British court filings, however, show Steele admitted he met with Yahoo News in September 2016, two months before the FBI got its initial warrant, to discuss the trip at the direction of Fusion GPS.

Think of it — using a Yahoo News article to obtain a FISA warrant. You could not make this up. The journalist who wrote the article is stunned:

2. FBI Knew Steele Was Being Paid By DNC, Hillary Clinton, Chose Not To Tell The Court

The FBI did not tell the court that information cited in its warrant application was gathered by an individual who was being paid by Trump’s political opponents.

The bureau was aware that Steele was working for Fusion GPS, a research firm that was hired by Perkins Coie, a law firm Hillary Clinton and the DNC were making payments to. The DNC and Clinton campaign paid Steele $160,000 …

In December 2017 FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe Steele testified that if the dossier hadn’t existed, the FBI would not have sought a warrant (Bombshell 3).

4. FBI Spied On Trump’s Associate For Nearly a Year

The FBI obtained the initial FISA warrant to surveil Page on October 21, 2016 after he visited Moscow and reportedly spoke to a Russian official who had expressed support for Trump in July 2016. The warrant was renewed three times for the full extent allowed of 90 days each, totaling 360 days under surveillance

With each of these renewals, the FBI choose not to disclose to the court that it had relied on information funded by Trump’s political opponents in its quest to surveil a Trump campaign member.

Signatories included then-FBI director James Comey, then-deputy director Andrew McCabe, then-deputy attorney general Sally Yates, then-acting-deputy attorney general Dana Boente, and deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein.

What this means is that Trump was under surveillance even after he became president:

Steele began playing up his role in the operation and gave an interview to David Corn of Mother Jones on October 30, 2016, only several days after the first FISA warrant was approved. The FBI dismissed him as an ongoing source, as he violated bureau protocol (Bombshell 5). However, the FBI never told FISC — the FISA court — when seeking warrant renewals (Bombshell 6).

7. DOJ Official’s Wife Was Getting Paid By Fusion GPS

Throughout the process of obtaining the initial warrant, then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion GPS, the firm that hired Steele to dig up dirt on Trump. At the firm, she helped conduct opposition research on Trump and his associates. The FBI did not disclose this to the court.

Ohr was demoted within the DOJ in December 2017 after it was discovered he had concealed meetings with Steele and Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. During these meetings, Steele confided in Ohr that he was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected.” The FBI knew about Steele’s political bias against Trump, but did not make this known to the court.

Why this matters — constitutional crisis?

Exposing this — what many Trump supporters knew or suspected — is a very big deal and could cause a constitutional crisis:

From The_Donald:

This congressman takes it even further:

Ultimately:

What’s coming soon

On February 2, Gateway Pundit reported that Senators Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsay Graham (R-South Carolina) are busy attempting to get a Senate Judiciary Committee memo declassified.

The HPSCI will also vote to make supporting documents to the FISA memo discussed here available to the public.

Expected in March is the inspector general’s — Michael Horowitz’s — report which is likely to cover this and much more.

2018 will be quite the year for news. Stay tuned.

(Forbidden Bible Verses will appear on Sunday, February 4.)

On Monday, January 29, 2018, the US House of Representatives voted to make the Devin Nunes memo on FISA abuse public.

Representative Devin Nunes (R-California) is the House Intelligence Committee chairman.

His memo will probably appear within the next few days.

Representative Mark Meadows (R-North Carolina) says this is the same memo that the House has seen:

President Donald Trump will have no objections to making it public, along with relevant documents:

Author and journalist Paul Sperry says it will go public after the State of the Union address on Tuesday, January 30. Pictured below is Nunes’s adversary, Adam Schiff (D-California), and fellow Democrats. Adam Schiff and other Democrats do not want this memo released:

We will also be able to read the background to the vote:

The Nunes memo will be a watershed moment, as Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) explains. The content is tied to texts exchanged between FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page:

According to him, it will also implicate President Trump’s opponent in 2016:

Remember how Trump looked at Hillary at the 2016 Al Smith Catholic Charities dinner?

As Representative Louis Gohmert (R-New York) said:

Former Secret Serviceman Dan Bongino says:

Interestingly, the FBI’s deputy director, Andrew McCabe, who recently announced his retirement also left on January 29, weeks earlier than announced:

So:

The Conservative Treehouse has more (emphases mine):

On Sunday night the Justice Department was granted access to view the House Intelligence Committee memo known as the ‘Nunes Memo’.  In unusual timing, last night FBI Director Christopher Wray went to the secure facility (SCIF) in the basement of the House of Representatives to view the content of the House Intel Committee memo.

Today, the FBI releases an announcement saying Deputy FBI Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe has stepped down (been removed) from his position effective immediately.

The Conservative Treehouse article has the history to the story, going back one year.

There is also a leaker at the DOJ:

Think about it.  The Nunes memo was available to congress for over a week, and not a single -substantive- material leak came outYet, within HOURS of the Justice Department having access to the memo, the New York Times is writing about specific details contained within the memo

The House Judiciary Committee chair, Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-Virginia), has written to FBI Director Wray requesting that McCabe’s communications be retained:

Back now to the Nunes memo. What is it likely to say?

The Conservative Treehouse has more, including a synopsis of an interview the aforementioned Dan Bongino gave to Fox News. Excerpts follow:

Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino appeared on Tucker Carlson TV show tonight to discuss the release of Chairman Devin Nunes intelligence memo.

During the segment Mr. Bongino highlighted his theory that Chairman Nunes memo not only holds references to the DOJ and FBI use of fraudulent FISA702 application evidence, but that the memo also contains compartmented intelligence exclusive to former President Obama’s Presidential Daily Briefings (PDB’s)

If true, this exclusive Bongino revelation could be explosive.

As for the expected memo content:

From all indications it is an outline written by senior intelligence committee staff, with major input from Devin Nunes describing evidence, people and events who conspired back in 2016 and 2017. In essence it is a summary of facts, that Chairman Nunes knows to exist.

No-one actually knows what the underlying supportive material is, because no-one, other than Chairman Devin Nunes, has seen the full material in the context of his reference.

People are *assuming* the memo is heavily written around FISA-702 issues and documents (FISA application, Steele Dossier, wiretaps, surveillance, intercepts etc.), but no-one actually knows what is behind the memo, other than Devin Nunes.

The article has background information on Nunes, whom the Democrats had temporarily removed from his chairmanship for several months in 2017 on a trumped-up ethics violation. The matter came to nothing.

The article also says that prominent Obama cabinet members could be implicated in the memo.

Here is an interesting Obama video clip:

Keep this in mind:

The Democrats are on the attack:

Here’s Senator Chuck Schumer (D-New York), responsible for the recent government shutdown:

This is a great retort from the former Milwaukee sheriff to Eric Holder’s comment on McCabe:

Former CIA director says Mueller’s investigation should be protected by law:

The media will spin this all sorts of ways.

Anyone opposing release of this memo or criticising it is a) guilty, b) loathes the American public or c) both.

This post is part of a series about expected news items in 2018. Readers who have not seen the first two posts might find them of interest:

Part 1: hate in Washington DC

Part 2: Hillary WAS supposed to win (The 16 Year Plan to Destroy America)

Part 3: FBI’s missing texts

Today’s instalment has more on the missing texts, FBI agent Peter Strzok and another topic, the ‘secret society’ revealed in these messages.

More missing texts

Fox News has discovered that Strzok and then-FBI lawyer Lisa Page were not the only agency employees to have texts go missing:

The Fox News article says, in part:

EXCLUSIVE: Thousands of FBI cellphones were affected by the technical glitch that the DOJ says prevented five months’ worth of text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page from being stored or uploaded into the bureau’s archive system, federal law enforcement officials tell Fox News.

The missing messages have been at the center of a storm of controversy on Capitol Hill, after the DOJ notified congressional committees that there is a gap in records between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017. Strzok and Page are under scrutiny after it was revealed that the former members of Robert Mueller’s team exchanged a series of anti-Trump texts during the presidential campaign.

The gap in records covered a crucial period, raising suspicion among GOP lawmakers about how those messages disappeared.

But Fox News is told that the glitch affected the phones of “nearly” 10 percent of the FBI’s 35,000 employees.

Senior Department of Justice officials told Fox News they are “taking steps” to possibly recover the texts from the appropriate cellphone carriers. The same officials told Fox News they are also making every effort to track down the physical cellphones in question so they could be subject to a forensic review.

True Pundit, which looks click-baity but is run by a former FBI employee, has more, possibly based on anonymous FBI tip-offs. Excerpts follow, emphases mine:

A high-ranking FBI official confirms a number of the missing 50,000 FBI text messages — as well as other text and email messages among FBI brass — reportedly discussed initiating physical harm to President Donald Trump

The FBI official urged the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — which oversees the U.S. Secret Service  — to launch an investigation of the Justice Department, the FBI and all text messages missing and otherwise that threatened the President.

“This is dangerous territory and all FBI text messages and personal phones should be examined,” the official said. “It would reveal some frightening conversations.”

Did FBI brass discuss the assassination of President Donald Trump? If not, what was the nature of the threats against the president from inside the alleged premier law enforcement agency in the United States?

“(Director) Wray wants a lid on this,” the FBI official said. “Many know there was talk of harming Trump politically but there is a group here (in D.C. HQ) that understands it goes deeper. We need a special counsel or Homeland Security. Somebody has to clean this up outside of DOJ. It is unacceptable.

This is scary:

As reported yesterday in True Pundit, members of the FBI and Justice Department’s top brass at their Washington D.C.headquarters and other field offices are now using burner phones to stay under the radar of federal investigators and lawmakers, according to FBI insiders.

The shocking revelations come on the heels of news that the FBI deleted thousands of text messages between anti-Trump FBI agents before investigators could review their content.

While that is disturbing on one level, FBI and DOJ hierarchy employing the telecom habits of drug cartel bosses reaches a new low for the once-heralded federal law enforcement agency and the DOJ. And breaks federal laws as well.

The Hill reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the DOJ will investigate the matter and do everything possible to recover the missing texts:

“We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source,” Sessions said in a statement.

“I have spoken to the Inspector General and a review is already underway to ascertain what occurred and to determine if these records can be recovered in any other way. If any wrongdoing were to be found to have caused this gap, appropriate legal disciplinary action measures will be taken,” he continued.

As my post of yesterday pointed out, there are several ways these and other ‘missing’ electronic data can be recovered.

In addition, the phones being used were supposed to be Samsung S5 phones, which do not have a bug that deletes texts. Hmm:

However, The Hill‘s article says that a number of Republican legislators are echoing Trump’s claim that the Robert Mueller investigation is a political witch hunt. Strzok and Page were part of Mueller’s team until he found out about the copious text exchanged between these two anti-Trumpers.

The Daily Caller recaps what Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee told a Milwaukee radio host about one of the texts in which Strzok says that they won’t find anything on Trump, insinuating that he only joined the Mueller investigation to depose the president:

In an interview with WISN-Milwaukee radio host Jay Weber, Johnson read aloud a May 19, 2017 text that Strzok sent to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.

Strzok wrote: “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there” …

As the FBI’s deputy counterintelligence chief, Strzok was picked in July 2016 to oversee the investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government. Prior to that, he was a top investigator on the Clinton email inquiry.

“I think that’s kind of jaw-dropping,” said Johnson, a Republican, said of the Strzok text.

“In other words, Peter Strzok, who was the FBI deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division, the man who had a plan to do something because he just couldn’t abide Donald Trump being president, is saying that his gut sense is that there’s no big there there when it comes to the Mueller special counsel investigation,” he said.

The text message was included in 400 pages of text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page. Lawmakers have started reviewing the trove of documents for evidence of anti-Trump and pro-Clinton bias.

CBS News has a related article with several of the text messages the two exchanged.

Johnson and Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary, sent a four-page letter to Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz with a list of questions about these missing messages.

Imperator_Rex thinks there is a strategy behind the news about the missing texts:

5. So while Strzok & Page (or someone else) deleted the texts, I’m not buying the separate conclusion that they no longer exist. Here’s what I think may be happening.

6. Option #1 -The OIG discovered the texts were deleted during their investigation & recovered them. Working with DOJ, they are now leaking fake news to confuse the perps in this conspiracy and/or hoping to stimulate comms between them (they’d all be under surveillance), or

7. #2 – this is part of the lead up to the memo release & part of a well planned, calibrated campaign to educate the American public for that shock, as well as what follows. Remember,most Americans are only just waking up to what many of us have known for months.

8. #3 – they are ALL lost forever, never to be found again. Remember, even if the SMSs are lost (they aren’t), the signatures of where, who, how & when the deletions occurred will remain. AND they already have more than enough evidence to nail these sob’s to the wall, anyway.

9. May be wrong, but one thing I have learned in the last 12 months is NEVER to accept what’s happening on the surface at face value. ESPECIALLY leaks to the media. We learned this in the ‘leaks are real, news is fake’ campaign that started as soon as Trump was inaugurated.

Transfers, resignations

Strzok has been transferred internally and is now working in the FBI’s HR department.

Page has been transferred from the FBI to the DOJ.

However, more transfers — and resignations — have occurred. This could be because of IG Horowitz’s independent investigation of the FBI:

On Tuesday, January 23, James Rybicki, chief of staff to the Trump-appointed FBI director Christopher Wray, resigned. He was to have appeared before the House Oversight Committee the Thursday before.

to testify as part of the committee’s investigation into the Department of Justice’s probe in Hillary Clinton’s private email server, and the decision by then-FBI Director James Comey to announce there would be no criminal charges against the former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.

Rybicki will also appear before the House Judiciary Committee, an aide told the Washington Examiner.

He showed up, apparently.

Fox News reported that Rybicki’s departure had been on the cards for months and that he was not fired. He will be moving to the corporate sector.

The Conservative Treehouse has more:

Rybicki was the key figure in circulating and coordinating the “Clinton Exoneration Statement” read by Director Comey.  For Clinton endeavor Rybicki was the hub collecting and dispatching communication as the ‘talking points’ were constructed, edited, refined and ultimately finalized.

Additionally, Rybicki was the communication hub surrounding the Clinton-Lynch ‘Tarmac Meeting’ discussion points that led to public statements therein by the FBI and ultimately Loretta Lynch’s public statements about distancing herself from the investigation.

Also, James Rybicki was listed as one of the key witnesses requested by Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes as outlined in the letter of agreement between Nunes and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.   James Rybicki was/is being questioned by Nunes et al.

Zachary Harmon is Rybicki’s replacement.

Then, we have this move:

CNN‘s article states:

Dana Boente, the acting head of the Justice Department’s national security division and the US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, has been picked to become the new FBI general counsel, according to a source familiar with the move.

Boente was first thrust into the spotlight in January 2017 as the acting attorney general after President Donald Trump fired Sally Yates for her refusal to defend the first travel ban. He later moved to the No. 2 spot at the Justice Department as acting deputy attorney general, tasked with overseeing the Russia probe after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself and then delivering the news to a slew of US attorneys left over from the Obama administration that they had been fired.

He will take the place of James Baker, who was reassigned within the FBI late last year.

I highlighted part of the first paragraph, because his move means that leaves a vacancy for a new US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, no doubt a Trump appointee.

Eventually, the FBI — and DOJ — will be cleaned up, but it won’t be any time soon.

TrumpSoldier has a good thread — complete with video clips — on FBI director Christopher Wray, who is waiting for the IG’s report on the bureau so he can do a complete clean up:

‘Secret society’

The Strzok/Page text exchange mentioned a ‘secret society’ intending to remove Trump from office:

Michael Goodwin mentions it in a good article in the New York Post about how politicised the FBI has become:

… each day brings credible reports suggesting there is a massive scandal involving the top ranks of America’s premier law enforcement agency. The reports, which feature talk among agents of a “secret society” and suddenly missing text messages, point to the existence both of a cabal dedicated to defeating Donald Trump in 2016 and of a plan to let Hillary Clinton skate free in the classified email probe.

If either one is true — and I believe both probably are — it would mean FBI leaders betrayed the nation by abusing their powers in a bid to pick the president.

ABC News has an exclusive on the ‘secret society’, which includes this:

Asked Wednesday whether he believes there’s a “secret society” inside the FBI to take down the president, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., said, “That’s Strzok and Page’s term.”

“Everything I take with a grain of salt,” he added. “[But] I’ve heard from an individual that … there was a group of managers within the FBI that were holding meetings off site.”

So “when Strzok and Page had described a secret society, that didn’t surprise me because I had corroborating information,” Johnson said.

He declined to describe the “whistleblower” in any way, and he said he did not know what the FBI’s “off-site” meetings might have entailed.

Nevertheless, he said he is “trying to be as transparent as possible.”

Johnson is pictured in the ABC tweet above. He also spoke to Fox News.

Infowars has more, summarising material from True Pundit and its founder who tweets as Thomas Paine:

Paul Joseph Watson tells us:

On Monday, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) revealed that congressional investigators learned from a new batch of text messages between anti-Trump FBI investigators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that a “secret society” within the DOJ and the FBI had schemed immediately after Trump’s election win to undermine the president

They communicate with meetings over cocktails, at homes, via encrypted chat rooms, texting on drug-cartel-inspired burner phones, and even via an email list, according to sources. Others have secured phones in the names of relatives to try to stay under the radar.”

The source of these claims, a Twitter account under the name of Thomas Paine who also runs the intelligence website True Pundit, could be easily dismissed as a crank – if were not for the fact that he exposed the secret society within the FBI a month before it was in the news.

On December 19, 2017 – over a month before it was made public, the Thomas Paine account tweeted, “What is this I hear about a private meeting away from FBI HQ by high-ranking FBI agents trying to get their stories and alibis straight?”

Ross Daniels, writing on Medium, has more:

A source on the inside has informed me of a top secret meeting that is alleged to have taken place between prominent intelligence community officials, both currently serving and retired.

The source details a meeting that took place in Virginia of December 2016 at the The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner. Officials met for several hours, there were some very, very prominent intelligence officials there, including Robert Mueller, James Comey, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, John Brennan, James Clapper, Leon Panetta, Phil Mudd, David Petraeus, Michael Hayden & former Attorney General Eric Holder.

My word. If true, that’s an all-star line-up.

There’s more:

They openly joked about the now famous Russian dossier, likely used to obtain the FISA court warrant to spy on the transition team. The source wouldn’t reveal that it was used to obtain the warrant, because of the legal repercussions of declassifying such a revelation, but strongly hinted that was indeed the case …

The source wouldn’t go into too many other details, citing the typical lingo of “can’t compromise sources and methods etc”… this person was also in fear they would be outed for going public about the meeting, a meeting they were told “never took place” upon arriving at the lavish hotel. They tried to take this to more mainstream outlets, but didn’t think anyone would believe the story

This further proves that the IC was actively working to undermine the President from day one in backroom closed door meetings. I am also told this wasn’t the only meeting.

Former US Attorney Joe diGenova believes this could well be true and, if so, thinks the group still meets. He is none too happy with the current FBI director, Wray, either, for not cleaning house:

Representative Mark Gaetz (R-Florida) gave an interview about the ‘secret society’, calling it a ‘palace coup’:

I do not know how much of this message from another Anon is true — not all of it, one imagines — but it mentions the ‘secret society’ and a plan to kidnap Trump’s grandchildren, suggesting that is why Donald Trump Jr dropped his Secret Service detail for private security.

In closing, here is part of a thread from Representative Mark Meadows (R-North Carolina) about the widespread corruption at the FBI:

Think about how important that is. We have a text from Peter Strzok talking about the pressure to end the Clinton investigation, and then–within 48 hours–documents suggesting Peter Strzok changed Dir. Comey’s letter from criminal charges to just “carelessness.” That’s major.

Folks, this stinks to high heaven. If this is anything what it looks like–the FBI changing course on investigation, putting their thumb on the scale to undermine Donald Trump and essentially help Hillary Clinton–that is as wrong as it gets. This demands further investigation.

And remember, this doesn’t even address a host of other questions! The dossier. The Carter Page FISA application (that they still won’t show us). The 5 months of mysteriously “missing” Page/Strzok texts. The FBI communicating with Fusion GPS/DNC-hired Christopher Steele. Come on.

This is not party politics. This is not partisan bickering. This is an issue that gets at the very heart of who we are as a nation. If any officials at the FBI were engaged in this kind of behavior, we need to know.

Bottom line: tell us the truth. Tell us the truth about what happened with the Clinton investigation, the 2016 election, and leading up to this “collusion” investigation. All of it. Americans deserve the truth.

I will have more on 2018 news next week.

I have been writing about expected news items in 2018. Readers who have not seen the first two posts might find them of interest:

Today’s looks at the current state of the FBI, specifically with reference to missing texts.

Missing texts

Yesterday’s post briefly discussed the bureau’s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, dismissed from Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Donald Trump. (More here.) Mueller’s people are still digging. They cannot seem to find anything.

The DOJ’s inspector general (IG), Michael Horowitz, is in possession of 50,000 texts Strzok and Page exchanged. However, five months’ worth of texts are missing:

These should be recoverable, one way …

… or another:

Of course, the IG will want to know how they went missing and if their content has any bearing on the four-page Devin Nunes memo, which, according to the congressmen who have seen it, is mind-blowing.

Journalist Brian Cates who tweets as Stealth Jeff has more (ThreadReader app version here):

Stealth Jeff advises Americans to be patient. The truth is coming, but will take a long time:

Q says these texts could be made public not only for their content, but also because they could cast doubt on the FBI and DOJ and put in jeopardy criminal cases from the Obama years:

Dr Jerome Corsi has analysed this Q message. Before I go into the possible content of the text messages, let’s look at the legal ramifications regarding Obama-era — and early Trump presidency — criminal cases at federal level:

… if it can be proven the FBI and DOJ lied and withheld (and/or destroyed) evidence, every civil and criminal conviction during the 8 years of the Obama  presidency (as well as the Trump presidency from the start until the clean-up) would be reversed on appeal even if the appeals have to go to the Supreme Court.

The Obama FBI and DOJ were lawless, acting as if the FBI and DOJ were above the law, despite being weaponized and politicized by President Obama.

This is huge (emphases mine below):

The U.S. government is headed toward the largest and most critical Constitutional crisis in our nation’s history.

Corsi says that Robert Mueller’s investigation would be shut down and Mueller himself could be investigated for his past activities, e.g. Uranium One, in which he was involved.

Now for the content of the text messages. Is Corsi mistaken about 50,000 missing text messages? Was it a mistake? Including it for Corsi’s text … :

QAnon is suggesting the 50,000 missing text messages between FBI chief investigator Strzok and his mistress, FBI attorney Lisa Page, were removed by the FBI (sanitized) precisely because the text messages contained discussion of assassinating President Trump and/or members of his family.

If true, that is a huge federal crime, Corsi says. And it might be a conspiracy involving other players. If so:

evidence of a conspiracy would be considered an act of war, if a foreign state participated as a co-conspirator in the coup d’état to remove Trump from the presidency by assassinating him.

Notice that Q also mentions human trafficking and sacrifices. Democrats called Trump supporters conspiracy theorists in 2016, but 2017 saw thousands of trafficking/paedophilia arrests in the United States. They were low-hanging fruit, but there are many people at the top of the tree:

QAnon is signaling that soon QAnon will be dropping crumbs so thousands of ANONs can begin the Great Awakening among the American people of the horror of human trafficking and human sacrifices engage in  by the globalists in conjunction with the Democratic Party elite. This is a truly horrifying and frightening comment, signaling the American people will soon be presented with evidence of almost unimaginable EVIL our leftist  political elite as practiced and covered-up most likely for decades.

Not everything can be made public. It is too disgusting. People would start marching on Washington ready to dispense vigilante justice. Also, to bring these people to justice demands stealth and silence:

The first meaning is that the SEXUAL CRIMES we are about to discover (mixed with DRUGS) will be so shocking that the average person can only absorb about 60 percent of the truth. A secondary meaning is that the story of what it will take to uncover these CRIMINALS and to bring them to justice must remain partly a story never told.

Q’s messages must have some element of truth, because:

On Tuesday night, 4chan and 8chan came under heavy cyber-attack as the forces of evil fought back. QAnon posted on both /qreearch an[d] /GreatAwakening (the dedicated channel on which only QAnon can post). QAnon posted several “Security Checks” on both 8chan boards. All QAnon posts (even those that were removed) were captured by the Anonymous in real time –  nothing was lost to the cyberattack.

More to come on the implications of these texts and related news items tomorrow.

Yesterday’s post described the hateful atmosphere in Washington DC.

This is because Hillary Clinton really was supposed to win in 2016.

The 16 Year Plan to Destroy America

Her anticipated victory was part of a plan to fully destroy the Great Republic. Eight years of Obama weakening the US globally, followed by eight years of Hillary to complete the job domestically. This diagram has been making the rounds online — The 16 Year Plan to Destroy America:

It might sound strange to some, but look at the Obama side of the chart.

There were rogue operators in government, some of whom — e.g. Valerie Jarrett — worked very closely with him. Jarrett currently lives with the Obamas.

Good guys were removed — or at least compromised — in government. Look at this message about Supreme Court Justice John Roberts. It’s likely to be true, as TheLastRefuge has not been wrong yet:

Obama allowed MS-13 to infest the United States. Why? For the most part, such gangs can ruin neighbourhoods, towns and states. That is what Obama wanted. Furthermore, the Deep State can co-opt gangs like that to be hitmen. Think of the DNC — Democratic National Committee — employee Seth Rich who was inexplicably murdered during the summer of 2016 in Washington DC. What if MS-13 were tied to the Seth Rich murder? If true, that would mean the DNC has ties to MS-13! We don’t yet know, but, perhaps, someday we will.

As for ISIS, remember when Obama called them ‘the JV team‘? For my overseas readers, JV is ‘junior varsity’, referring to sports teams at secondary school or university level.

As for the next two rows of items about national security, who knows what nations have access to US classified information. Why does Obama keep travelling around the world meeting with heads of state, often around the time President Donald Trump does? It’s unheard of for a former president to do such a thing. It is brazen and calculated.

There are also incidents that were never fully investigated, such as Benghazi in 2012, a few weeks before the election. How could something like that have happened? How could a young ambassador and American servicemen die like that? Sure, there were hearings and Hillary testified as Secretary of State. The most memorable moment about her testimony was when she said:

What difference, at this point, does it make?

At home, Obama targeted the Tea Party, everyday Americans who think they are being overtaxed: TEA (Taxed Enough Already). Many were investigated by the IRS under Lois Lerner. Apparently, she won’t be investigated any further under the Trump administration. Hmm. Why not? I hope that is fake news.

No one could criticise Obama because, when anyone dared to, his supporters called them racist.

Not surprisingly, Obama appointed left-wing Supreme Court justices.

He really weakened NASA. What a waste of intelligent minds. As far as space exploration was concerned, it was dead for him.

He did relax borders and, by allowing sanctuary cities, made Americans less safe. A number of illegal aliens care nothing for the United States or its citizens. Trump made a point of getting to know parents of children killed by illegals, such as Kate Steinle, whose killer went unconvicted. He also got to know Jamiel Shaw, who must be grieving every day, only to be told he is a racist by a Hollywood director:

Obama signed the executive order for DACA. It is not legislation. The Democrats would like it to be, because they want a voting monopoly. They and their fellow travellers in the media speak of the Dreamers as children. Most are adults. Trump cancelled DACA. We will see what happens now that the US government is back in action.

Obama also gave an interview in the autumn of 2016 to a Dreamer, encouraging her and other non-citizens to vote in the election.

Obama has a lot for which to answer.

Now, let’s look at the Hillary side of the chart. She, not Trump, was the one talking about engaging in war. Anyone not reading the news closely would have missed that. The media did not speak much about it.

She no doubt would have wanted to revise the Constitution. Many Democrats see it as a ‘living document’, meaning that it can be revised from time to time. Certainly, amendments have been added over time, but Hillary’s objective was to tear it apart bit by bit. We’ve seen her on television. She would have put forth a most lawyerly argument. Of that, have no doubt.

She is certainly against Americans owning firearms, so she would have attempted to get — perhaps succeeded in getting — the Second Amendment repealed.

She is no fan of the First Amendment, either. She made it clear in the run-up to the election that she would have certain websites and programmes — e.g. Infowars — taken down or off the air immediately.

Look at how pro-Hillary outfits such as Google, Facebook and Twitter are censoring non-leftist accounts and searches. They are even tracking where you’re going online.

No doubt, Hillary would have done away with the Electoral College. Just let California, New York and Illinois decide who would be president. Imagine the vote rigging and non-citizens voting. The Electoral College was designed to prevent a few populous states from deciding who the next president would be.

As for open borders, she wanted to let in more refugees than Obama did.

She would have put an end to the middle class, which was gradually disappearing under Obama.

You get the idea.

The Trump victory

The above explains why half of the country is outraged that Donald Trump is president.

It was never supposed to have happened.

All the water carriers and useful idiots — the media, educators at every level and more — did their level best to support Hillary.

They failed.

Immediately, they regrouped in an effort to destroy Donald Trump.

Hence, the violent protests, the Democrats decrying him, the media taking issue with everything he does.

They were sure that the Electoral College would not vote Trump in. They were wrong.

They were sure that he would not be inaugurated. He was.

The Russian dossier was supposed to be their ‘insurance policy’, as FBI agent Peter Strzok called it.

In 2017, talking points included impeachment and the president’s mental health. He’ll never last the year, they said. They were wrong.

The Mueller investigation started. Word has it that Trump and his advisers thought it would be politically expedient.

Peter Strzok and an FBI lawyer Lisa Page were part of Robert Mueller’s team before being dismissed last summer. (More here.) They sent tens of thousands of text messages to each other. Now we find out that five months’ worth are ‘missing’:

Clash Daily has a series of diagrams explaining the cabal involved in some way with this Russia dossier. Please have a look.

Devin Nunes memo

My post from yesterday discussed the Devin Nunes memo and the fact that a sizeable number of Americans, including legislators, would like it — and related documentation — to be made public.

This is what the co-founder of The Federalist had to say:

Here are perspectives from two more Republican congressmen:

Congressman Joyce (Ohio) was in law enforcement for several years before he ran for Congress. He is used to seeing a lot of horrible things. He told Fox News that when the public gets to see the memo, they will ‘be surprised how bad it is’. He also said that it’s not a question of firing people involved — it’s one of jail:

The coup is real

A coup is actually taking place as Democrats, the Deep State and members of the GOP establishment — with the help of the media — attempt to remove President Donald Trump from office.

The budget shutdown was a benign example of Senator Chuck Schumer (D-New York) attempting to put Trump in his place. But that did not work, either:

In November 2017, I posted on ‘Q Clearance’ Anon’s initial messages from the end of October.

Q Clearance is no longer posting. It seems there is another one or more persons posting under Q on 8chan. Many Q followers believe he/they are working in the White House. The main Q messages are here.

Q

Dr Jerome Corsi analyses Q’s messages and in this Scribd explains why The 16 Year Plan to Destroy America is accurate.

Looking at the first several lines, Q mentions the Devin Nunes memo. Once this goes public, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be able to recuse himself. He had to recuse himself from the Mueller investigation because he was part of Trump’s campaign team in 2016. However, as the Nunes memo is expected to discuss unwarranted — illegal? — Obama-era surveillance, this would bring the phony Russian dossier into question, as well as the whole Mueller investigation.

Corsi explains what Q means by ‘collusion at highest levels’ — bringing us to the coup:

The Nunes Memo made public will alert the American people to the Democratic Party coup d’état (undertaken in large part through Obama/Hillary/Podesta collusion with Russia). Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Podesta (plus many others) are guilty of TREASON. Hillary was right (Hillary’s tantrum after  NBC commander-in-chief forum in September 2016  – 
 
If we lose the election, we will all hang”’).

Obama’s weaponisation of the intel was to ensure the Democrats would win in 2016 (and, no doubt, beyond):

The weaponizing included using the Fusion GPS dossier to get FISA court approval to conduct electronic surveillance on Donald Trump’s campaign.

Also included was President Obama’s plan to unmask and leak information detrimental to Trump’s campaign that was gained from the illegally obtained FISA electronic surveillance.

After McCabe communicates the Lisa Page “insurance” idea to Loretta Lynch, the HRC conspiracy develops as a pyramid structure, with Obama at the top calling the shots needed to use the Fusion GPS Dossier to get FISA court-ordered approval to conduct electronic surveillance on Donald Trump and  principals in Trump campaign. Other two legs of pyramid connect to the Clinton campaign through John Podesta and to the intel community via Clapper and Brennan.

CIA Director John Brennan the CIA “handler” of Barry Soetoro, aka Soebarkah, aka Barack Hussein Obama –  led the effort to sell the “Russia collusion” narrative to the mainstream media and the American public in order to prevent Donald Trump from serving out his term in office should he (unexpectedly) win the election.

The rest of Corsi’s document explains how the remainder of Q’s cryptic message provides proof of the actions Obama took — and that Hillary would have taken — to destroy America.

In closing

Some reading this might have had a hard time taking all of it in.

More news on this subject will emerge in 2018, so we need to be prepared.

In closing, Tracybeanz has done sterling work in analysing Q’s messages via her YouTube videos. She tweeted a long thread on Sunday, January 21, which ends with the following messages of encouragement:

14. My fellow Americans, we are at a precipice. We are at the beginning of what will be a very long fight. I am here tonight to implore you to not give up– to keep love in your hearts and a fierce spirit in your belly. I am here to ask that you not feel discouraged, but empowered

15. We have the chance to fix this. There is much to learn and much to do, but the time is NOW. Speak to your friends and family. Treat folks with the compassion you wished you had when you began to learn of these atrocities.

16. There has never been a more important time in our history, and it truly is up to you and I- as Americans and citizens of the world – to hold it all together. Do not stop in your search for the truth – it is just beginning.

17. You will discover more over the coming months and years – let not your heart be troubled, for those who do not understand and know the past are doomed to repeat it.

18. It will not be easy. It will at times be devastating. Lean on your brothers and sisters, and remember why we are doing this – for our children and theirs, and all future generations.

19. May God bless you, may God bless our President and the brave men and woman doing this work, and may God bless the United States of America. 🙏❤️

It is essential for us to pass what is happening along to others, including those outside of the United States.

At some point, the media will no longer be able to ignore this, so everyone needs to be psychologically prepared — especially those living in Western nations.

Thank you in advance for reading and for your consideration of the above.

Next: more on the missing emails

2018 might well end up being the most historic year — or one of them — in recent American history.

We need to prepare ourselves for it, because Big Media won’t be reporting on it fully.

Currently, the US government is shut down. That has happened before. However, a serious dynamic lies behind this particular one.

Before I go there, this is the latest status of the shutdown:

Procedurally, this is what is lies behind the shutdown:

Now to the deeper side of the story. Roger Simon of PJ Media explains the animosity in the American capital in his January 20, 2018, article pithily titled, ‘Washington: City of Hate’. Excerpts follow, emphases mine:

You wouldn’t know these were boom times with the stock market at all-time highs and unemployment near all-time lows if you were in the nation’s capital.

Washington, D.C., is a city of hate.

When you visit, it appears no one can stand each other. The two political sides are at each other’s throats so constantly it’s hard to imagine they sleep. Maybe they don’t. And then there are the sides within the sides, always ready for more gnashing of teeth, mutual hostility, and endless contempt.

Hence, the shutdown, one battle in the ongoing political war between the Democrats and the Republicans.

For over a year, Democrats and Republican Never-Trumpers have been pushing the Russia dossier. The Mueller investigation is ongoing, yet, after all this time, no charges have been brought against President Donald Trump.

The Mueller investigation might come to an end soon. A four-page memo by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-California), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is based on classified information gathered over the past several months which says that an incredible amount of surveillance of not only Trump but also ordinary Americans has been going on:

Yes, after more than a year of “Russia, Russia, Russia” (translation: I hate you. I hate you, I hate you.), it’s all coming down — or may be coming down — to a memo to the House Intelligence Committee.

Only we’re not supposed to see it — that and all the attendant documents, emails and texts that prove or disprove its contents.

Was a forged document by a sleazy coterie of wretched political attack dogs actually used by our government to justify spying on U.S. citizens and upending a presidential campaign? Inquiring — or normal human — minds should want know.

‘We’re not supposed to see it’. That is the Democrat perspective. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California), also on the House Intelligence Committee, spoke with CNN on January 21. He does not think that the American public will understand. Schiff is saying that because he wants to protect his political party and the players in this surveillance. Schiff does not like President Trump. Nor does he appreciate the electorate. He is telling Americans — nicely — that they are stupid:

The Conservative Treehouse helpfully provided a partial transcript.

Schiff explains more about the memo:

It is essentially a set of talking points that the Republican Intel staff drafted. Based on the highly classified materials which most of the Republican members were forced to acknowledge they’ve not even read. So they don’t know how distorted these talking points are. But as part of the narrative they want to push out.

The only Republicans asking for the memo’s release are those who have seen it. Several of those who have wrote to Nunes to ask that it go through the official 19+-day process to open it up to the public.

Note that Schiff does not mention the Democrats outside the House Intelligence Committee do not want to even see the memo. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) speaks in the video below:

Then, Schiff adopts the standard Dem talking point saying that everyone clamouring for the memo’s release on Twitter is a Russian bot:

Interestingly enough, they’ve made common cause, once again, with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It’s in a redux of the campaign. We have Julian Assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hashtag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what’s driving this.

Schiff calls the memo ‘spin’, an attack on the FBI in order to get Mueller’s investigation to stop:

… the American people unfortunately don’t have the underlying materials and therefore they can’t see how distorted and misleading this document is. The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a fulsome attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller to circle the wagons for the White House. And that’s a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the Bureau, but more than that, it’s a disservice to the country.

False. Those who have written to the committee have asked for ‘ancillary information’ to also be released. The Washington Examiner has an article about the letter and, as of January 20, 65 legislators have signed it:

The Examiner explained what release involves, beginning with a quote from Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio):

“Here is the process: Chairman [Devin] Nunes in the Intelligence Committee in the House he can he bring the committee back together. They can have a vote. If the majority of the committee votes to release these documents, the executive branch gets a certain amount of time to review them. If the executive branch gives the thumbs up they go public,” he told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “This could happen real quick. Chairman Nunes is committed to getting this information to the public.

Rep. Mark Meadows, asked House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to authorize a vote on releasing the memo, and Ryan chose to defer to Nunes for the decision, Politico reported.

Both Jordan and Meadows, top members of the conservative Freedom Caucus, signed onto the Gaetz’s letter.

Members have been blocked from discussing the memo in detail due to a waiver they signed, according to The Hill. They have described it as being supported by classified documents and interviews that most lawmakers have not been allowed to see — putting knowledge of its veracity in doubt.

Gaetz, during an appearance on Fox News on Friday, went further with his assertions about the memo, saying the special counsel investigation into Russian interference and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin is “built on a false premise.” Gaetz has previously called for the removal of special counsel Robert Mueller.

So far, no vote has taken place.

For those empathetic to Democrats, over the weekend, former special prosecutor and practising attorney Joe diGenova gave an interview to Ginni Thomas of the Daily Caller News Foundation about what lies behind this surveillance and the dossier. He explains everything simply and clearly. This is a half hour well spent, because this will be in the news one way or another this year. People need to be prepared for it:

The information in a summary of the interview on The Daily Caller site points back to Roger Simon’s premise (top of this post) regarding the hate on both sides of the political aisle. When more information is made known, it is going to blow the doors off of Washington:

Joe diGenova, a former federal prosecutor, connects the dots on former Obama administration Justice Department and FBI officials who may have “violated the law, perhaps committed crimes” to politicize law enforcement and surveillance against political opponents.

He says former FBI Director James Comey conducted a fake criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as they “followed none of the regular rules, gave her every break in the book, immunized all kinds of people, allowed the destruction of evidence, with no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrants. That’s not an investigation. That’s a Potemkin village. It’s a farce.”

DiGenova condemned the FBI for working so closely with the controversial Fusion GPS, a political hit squad paid by the DNC and Clinton campaign to create and spread the discredited Steele dossier about President Donald Trump. Without a justifiable law enforcement or national security reason, he says, the FBI “created false facts so that they could get surveillance warrants. Those are all crimes.” He adds, using official FISA-702 “queries” and surveillance was done “to create a false case against a candidate, and then a president.”

Please read and think about this seriously.

Remember: Donald Trump was not supposed to win! Hence the hate!

Tomorrow: the 16-year plan to bring down America

The week of December 11, 2017 has been chock-a-block with news.

It’s unlikely Big Media have reported the bulk of it. What follows are a few stories people might have missed.

The anti-Trump FBI ‘insurance policy’

A series of text messages between FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page were released on Tuesday, December 12. The Daily Caller reports (emphases mine):

Two FBI officials who worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation exchanged text messages last year in which they appear to have discussed ways to prevent Donald Trump from being elected president.

I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok wrote in a cryptic text message to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.

It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok wrote in the text, dated Aug. 15, 2016.

Andy is likely Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Several congressional panels have been after these text messages since the beginning of December, when news emerged of their existence. However, Strzok was dismissed from the Mueller investigation four months ago.

The text messages, some of which The Daily Caller quotes, are anti-Trump. Some have four letter words. Most are cryptic:

“Maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” Page wrote.

“I can protect our country at many levels, not sure if that helps,” Strzok replied.

Like many of the exchanges, the full context of the message is not entirely clear.

Strzok also offered praise for Clinton while suggesting that he planned to vote for her.

In a March 2, 2016 text Strzok said he would likely vote for Clinton. In another exchange he wrote that if Trump won the Republican primary, Clinton would likely win the presidency.

On Wednesday, December 13, the Department of Justice inspector general, Michael Horowitz, released more information about the texts. The Daily Caller has more on the story. Horowitz received the text messages on July 20:

A week later, he met with Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to inform them of the politically-charged texts.

Strzok was “immediately” removed from the investigation after Mueller was told of the texts.

Strzok, who then served as the FBI’s No. 2 counterintelligence official, conducted many of the biggest interviews in the investigation, including with Clinton and her top aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills

The FBI handed over those messages on July 20, 2017. After reviewing those exchanges, Horowitz expanded the investigation to include all of the text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page from Nov. 30, 2016 to July 28, 2017.

Horowitz’s office received those messages on Aug. 10.

Strzok’s departure from Mueller’s team was reported by ABC News on Aug. 16. The network reported that Strzok had been placed in a job in the FBI’s HR department.

The reason for Strzok’s demotion remained a secret for nearly four months as the Justice Department and Mueller’s office declined media and congressional requests for an explanation. The levy finally broke on Dec. 2, when The Washington Post and New York Times simultaneously reported the existence of the text messages.

A sample of the texts were released Tuesday night ahead of Rosenstein’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee …

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee pressed Rosenstein on that text message, suggesting that Strzok was indicating that he planned to prevent Trump from being elected.

[Senator Charles] Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to Rosenstein on Wednesday inquiring about the text message.

Rosenstein said Wednesday that the Justice Department and FBI plan to soon make Strzok available for an interview with the House Intelligence Committee.

Strzok’s cryptic Aug. 2016 text [re the insurance policy] was sent just after he was handpicked to supervise the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Horowitz’s letter leaves a few questions unanswered. For one, it is not clear whether Strzok sent politically-charged texts with anyone else. It is also not clear whether the messages contained in the second requested batch of Strzok texts contain any controversial remarks.

The Wall Street Journal has more (note final paragraph):

This is a developing story which has the potential for unveiling criminality — but ultimately:

Alabama special election

In a surprise upset, the Democrat candidate Doug Jones was elected to the Senate, defeating Roy Moore.

The background to the story is that Jeff Sessions vacated his Senate seat in Alabama to serve as Attorney General earlier this year. Sessions appointed Luther Strange to replace him. Alabama governor Kay Ivey directed that a special election take place. However, I read anecdotally that she did not need to hold a special election. Strange could have served until his term ran out.

In any event, Luther Strange ran against Judge Roy Moore in the Republican primary. Strange lost to Moore. Accusations of molesting a teenage girl in the 1970s — unproven — led by an attorney who tried to smear then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016 — dogged Moore. Even so, Moore did not have any get-out-the-vote programme, whereas Jones and the Democrats did. Moore then lost to Jones — but only by 1.5%.

Could this have been a case of voter fraud in a state that votes overwhelmingly Republican?

Rumours are circulating that out-of-state voters were brought into Alabama and driven around from polling station to polling station — a classic Democrat strategy that works.

The Republican Party — specifically Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader — also refused to help Moore. McConnell’s detractors refer to him as Turtle.

Imperator_Rex has a good analysis, excerpted below:

He concludes that Trump surely has a game plan in mind.

The 2018 mid-terms require Republicans like McConnell to shape up or ship out.

However, as Imperator_Rex says, McConnell and his ilk don’t really care. They are all part of the Uniparty, so life continues for them much as before. Democrat dominance, especially when it comes to opposing Trump, is preferable to a Republican majority that might be persuaded to turn Trump policies into law.

Jones’s election nearly puts the number of Democrat senators on a par with Republicans. Danger, Will Robinson, danger!

Message to the black electorate

On December 13, the Revd Leon Benjamin and his family were guests at the White House.

They are an example of the middle class families helped by Trump’s proposed tax reform. Trump spoke about the tax plan, then invited the pastor to speak.

Pastor Benjamin had an important message, which began with:

To God be the glory!

Former Milwaukee sheriff David A Clarke expressed similar sentiments the day before:

Happy news
