    John Helmer (Dances With Bears) has an excellent piece on the indictments of Paul Manafort and Richard Gates and the guilty plea by George Papadopoulos.


    Seems Papadopoulos lied to the Trump campaign about P’s Russian “contacts,” and then lied to the FBI about lying to the Trump campaign. The Russian P-G wants details so as to prosecute the Russians involved in the entire mess.

    Buried in the article is this little nugget –
    “Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby, Vice President of the Hudson Institute in charge of national security and defense issues…employed Papadopoulos between 2011 and 2015 as an unpaid intern and research assistant. The Institute says Papadopoulos has lied about his association with Hudson.”

    The plot thickens, my friends. Never-Trumpers involved as well as the Clinton campaign? Lewis “Scooter” Libby is a Bush-Cheney guy.

    Sundance’s theory re: Mueller sending a warning signal to D.C. to clean up the D.C. foreign lobbying influence seems to be more correct than ever. imo

    Stephen F. Cohen, noted Russian scholar, once again becomes the voice of reason in The Nation.

    ‘Russiagate’ Zealots (Mainly Democrats) Have Become a Major Threat to US National Security
    “The crux should be American national security in the fullest domestic and international respects, not whether we are Trump supporters or members of the “Resistance.”

    Podcast included with an excellent write-up.
    The Nation also published an excellent piece on the VIPs technical debunking of the Russian-DNC “hacking” nonsense.

    Would that our corrupt Senate and House of Representatives listen to some true scholars instead of corrupt lobbyists and their money.

    1. Trump needs that Alabama seat in rep hands.
    2. whether or not Moore did anything wrong( I doubt it) the yearbook is a worse forgery than Rathergate.

    3. the media -including Fox, Hannity et all know #1 and are embargoing #2 . WTF? it seems so coordinated. Is giving the seat to Jones acceptable? it will kill MAGA.

    or is there a secret plan to cancel the election?the governor can do it.

      According to Alabama state law, it’s now too late to even remove Moore from the ballot, even though he could still lose the party’s nomination. Governor Kay Ivey could move the special election back in order to allow Moore’s name to be scrubbed from the ballot, a move that some strategists and commentators have championed as a way to give the party time to field a candidate, but on Saturday Ivey shut the door on that plan. “The governor is not considering and has no plans to move the special election for U.S. Senate,” the governor’s spokesperson told CBS News.

      Judge Moore is in a real pickle and the problem is Bannon gives lip service to helping his candidate. I just checked the site and it’s complete tabloid material. He has headlines like this, “Steve Bannon: Donald Trump Wouldn’t Be President if Not for the Death of Brian TerryMoore’s”.

      Anyhow, the Judge’s lawyer threatened to sue in an official letter last week and the outlet is now planning to countersue ordering him to not destroy incriminating documents. There are more of signatures being released into the public which I suppose is what they are after? But that yearbook signing appears to be authentic and I am guessing the blue ink was put there purposely by CNN to give the impression it was a forgery so they’d rush headlong into a hearing to disprove. A signature still does not mean he did anything untoward….but the problem is the judge is denying that was his signature. He’s signs unevenly on a line and the A matches in the DA. Still odd that DA is the clerk’s initials. Religion and politics really don’t mix well.

      I mean donate money if you can to Judge Roy Moore, because he’ll need it even more now with the AL lawsuit!

        Sorry that one image is way too big, it was smaller when I saw it


      • rumpole2 says:

        Um… those 2 example, at a first glance, do not refute the claim that the yearbook is forged. They bolster it. They both include the flourish on the y in Roy. Neither includes D.A.
        Are they from an article refuting the forgery claim, as you imply?


        • keebler AC says:

          The flourish is the S, middle initial. So why if forged from divorce document it was not added along with DA? You could be right ..or wrong. His signature is on a lot of documents and people are releasing what they have. The election is not a slam dunk is all I’m saying and Bannon is nowhere physically helping Moore out. Those articles he’s punting on Breitbart do nothing but rally outsiders.

            We could be right or wrong that is, it’s not black and white, pun not intended!


          • rumpole2 says:

            You are kinda asking me…

            WHY is the forgery so CRAP LOL

            Because it is an amateur job… easily spotted..


          • keebler AC says:

            Bannon of all people would have known not to let the Judge threaten, a news outlet because of his experience with media legalities…


            • rumpole2 says:

              I have often seen people say… that if the news story was not true the subject would sue. It was said in this case.
              Even if Judge Moore new the paper’s claims were true.. it woul be good strategy to THREATEN to sue. It has worked in this case. The fact that Moore threatened to sue was reported (in a few places).. and so gve credence to him being falsely accused.
              In turn the media THREATENS to counter sue … for the converse reasons.

              What Moore need to do now is… threaten to sue over the “contrived” counter suit being an abuse of the justice system.

              In the end… nobody will sue anybody.. apart from maybe (if he is sure) Moore could go after Allred and the forgery.


              • keebler AC says:

                DJ is raking in the $$ on it so people supported him outside and voted for him better do the SAME for Roy! It’s Christmas and no time to be broke.


              • deqwik2 says:

                Add another one to the lawsuit file.
                One of the women from the WaPo article has threatened to sue Moore for defamation if he doesn’t retract his statements.

                ·From Paula Cobia
                Just a reminder to Roy Moore (and the minions who filter the press for him) that Gloria Deason and I are still waiting for him to publicly retract his defamatory statements, and to issue apologies. Specifically, we demand that he retract his verbal and written statements calling us “liars,” and “evil,” and accusing us of bribery and conspiracy.

      • MAGAbear says:

        The accusation is that they lifted Moore’s signature from the document of Nelson’s divorce paper and imposed it onto the yearbook copy, which is likely why they won’t turn the yearbook over because it took numerous attempts to lineup the divorce paper signature onto the yearbook copy. Now please start charging Bannon for that rent space he currently occupies for free inside your head.

    In announcing his recusal four months earlier, Sessions said he and “senior career department officials” spent “several weeks” discussing whether his role as top foreign policy adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign last year meant his “impartiality might reasonably be questioned.”
