      Mueller violated POTUS’s and members of his transition teams rights and pierced attorney-client privilege and executive privilege. I really don’t think he is a white hat.

      Mueller and Weissman are known for being under handed and heavy handed. Seems to me they are staying true to form.

    Big Pharma Boss With Clinton Foundation Ties Found Dead at Home/

    By: Jay Greenberg |@NeonNettle on 16th December 2017 @ 12.11pm

    “The billionaire owner of Apotex Pharmaceuticals and his wife have been found dead at their home in “suspicious circumstances.

    “The bodies of Big Pharma executive Barry Sherman and his wife, Honey Sherman were found in their Toronto, Canada mansion on Friday.Police say the deaths of Canadian pharmaceutical giant couple are “suspicious” and suspect foul play, but have yet to launch a homicide investigation.

    Mr. Sherman was one of the most powerful and highly-connected men in North America and was perhaps most well-known for securing a deal with the Clinton Foundation to provide vaccines in Haiti.

    A lot of people going down that were involved in Haiti with the Clintons. The body count continues.

    • If this were Trump, it would be game over for him. All the body counts would be examined, night after night after night. But it’s Hillary, and Bill and the DNC and so they get a pass. The media are clearly complicit. They have a purpose, written in the constitution, to hold power to account. They have clearly failed, which is why we are here today. Our major political and law enforcement organizations have turned into subversive political groups working against the will of the people, and there is no-one to hold them to account..

      The media right now really is at Orwell’s 1984 level. It really is. I remember someone saying that George Orwell’s 1984 is a classic among Millenials!! Really, have they not read it? I guess for some people, politics is like football. It doesn’t matter if your team is always losing, and your season ticket price is always going up, you’ll support them no matter what.

        Take, the Millennials who are reading 1984 are currently using “Orwellian” to define Trump’s cutting certain words from acceptable usage in CDC documents/reports.
        “Positively Orwellian”…Lots of that.
        They are “scared” by Trump. He’s a Fascist.
        I was once curious as to how they were “taught” what Fascism actually IS…but no more.
        BC they have not been taught how to think, but only what to think.
        That and, as you say, they are losing now.

        Some Dem/Lefty group was showing the film “1984” all over the U.S. around the time when the Pussy Hat marches started. Maybe “Indivisible” or something is the name of the group. It was free at the Unitarian Church in town.

        Anyhoo…….I went cuz I wanted to see the film and was curious how these muttonheads would POSSIBLY believe that film was any kind of reflection on the Right.

        These people are seriously, utterly deranged.

    AG Sessions Defends FBI Agent Peter Strzok, Claims Anti-Trump Texts May Have “Innocent Explanation”

    Is this Sessions just playing his role of just not getting involved at all, or is this Sessions acting as Swampmeister General, and covering up the whole thing?

    I pray that the optimism of this site is what is happening, but I am afraid I always see the negative in politicians. And it is politicians investigating a politicized FBI. Call me an old cynic, but I’ll keep my champagne on hold for now.

    I stumbled across this today.

    Robert Costa, a Washington Post reporter talked with the Hoover Institution’s Steve Robinson.

    (At first I confused the name with Bob Costas.)

    https: // (Remove the space before “//” to restore the link.

    Listen to who brought the Access Hollywood tape to the WaPo. I suspect you’ve heard his name recently. The rest of the interview is good too, as I’ve found Robinson’s interviews to be.

    Utterly embarrassing description of the FBI

    Nothing but gossip, innuendo and politics.

    Get rid of the leadership, McCabe!


  10. News you can use..
    You notice…
    The MSN here hasn’t reported on this story?
    I’ve known SA has been build this WALL for several years now..
    When a raiding party from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant attacked a Saudi border post last week, it was no mere hit on a desert outpost.
    The jihadists were launching an assault on the new, highest profile effort by Saudi Arabia to insulate itself from the chaos engulfing its neighbours.
    The Saudis are building a 600-mile-long “Great Wall” – a combined fence and ditch – to separates the country from Iraq to the north.
    Take a LOOK! 😉

    ON Netflix is a documentary-drama (hybrid form, excellent) called “Wormwood”.

    It is the true story of the scientist given LSD who went flying out a hotel window in NYC, 1953.
    Part of the US biological weapons team, he was a subject given LSD by CIA.

    You will see the war crimes of the Korean War linked to the LSD experiments linked to CIA and FBI mass surveillance uncovered to the public in 1975 Congressional hearings. And now forgotten by many and unknown by many who think their government is their country. It wasn’t and hasn’t been for many decades. Don’t confuse government with country. It’s easy to do and they count on it to continue to hold you.

    You will see Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ford pull the wool over the family of the scientist.

    You will see young Sy Hersh, reporter had a huge impact in the 70’s over the same things we saw later and right up until now. Seymour Hersh is an American giant of the Press. The one and only.

    This is American History for grownups. No fairy tales. No Russian collusion.

    Pure evil, fascist, tyranny controlling the US public from the 50’s on, just in this one family’s case.
    One story. One true story.
    And nothing has changed.

    Think Seth Rich. Think of how the FBI is corrupt. It was then. Think of the CIA with ISIS and al Nusra in Syria and Iraq. It was with the worst people on the face of the earth then. Nothing has changed. Even some of the same government people are still about. Talking heads. Assuring the public.

    Watch it tonight or tomorrow. “Wormwood” On Netflix.

    Deja vu. Watching jeanine with desantis and jordan asking them what they’re waiting for. She puts heat on them and they talk in circles with puffed chests and righteous indignation. This EXACT scenario took place with greta and gowdy when benghazi was being “investigated”. The 3 congressmen all reading from the same script and both jeanine and greta KNOW they are full of shite. I fell for gowdy’s schtick back then. Fool me once.

      100% right. We’ve lived this before, and will again. A complete stage act. Like I’ve said, huffing and puffing leading to absolutely nothing in the end.

        Jordan is garbage. I haven’t forgotten the MONTHS he spent shoehorning Paul Ryan’s “Better Way” nonsense into every interview during the campaign. His answer to every question about Trump was to try to twist it to Ryan’s own agenda.

    Jesse Watters interviewing University Professor, Dr. Delessio Parson, how “Eating Meat Causing Toxic Masculinity” –

    I will never get those brain cells back — I can’t believe that we send our children to these idiots for education!

    I even did a google search to see what University has lost their mind…
    A Pennsylvania State University sociology professor recently argued that eating meat perpetuates “hegemonic masculinity” and “gender hegemony.”

    In the most recent issue of the Journal of Feminist Geography, professor Anne DeLessio-Parson argues that “hegemonic masculinity implies an imperative to eat meat” and that this helps reify other power hierarchies as well.

    WOW! Someone needs to force feed her some steak — so she shuts up — wow

    Want to set your hair on fire? Read the BLM whistleblower Special Agent report on the criminality, chaos, and hatred behind the scenes of the Bundy case. Chavettz was involved in exposing this. Maybe that’s why he announced his resignation soon afterwards.

    Special Agent Dan Love with a Kill List – is especially disturbing, among about 50 other things.
