    Breaking news: Obama allowed HEZBOLLAH to traffic cocaine to the US as a favor to IRAN.

    An ambitious U.S. task force targeting Hezbollah’s billion-dollar criminal enterprise ran headlong into the White House’s desire for a nuclear deal with Iran.

    [DEA] followed cocaine shipments, tracked a river of dirty cash, and traced what they believed to be the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran….

    But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records. When Project Cassandra leaders sought approval for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, officials at the Justice and Treasury departments delayed, hindered or rejected their requests.

    The Justice Department declined requests by Project Cassandra and other authorities to file criminal charges against major players such as Hezbollah’s high-profile envoy to Iran, a Lebanese bank that allegedly laundered billions in alleged drug profits, and a central player in a U.S.-based cell of the Iranian paramilitary Quds force. And the State Department rejected requests to lure high-value targets to countries where they could be arrested.

    (And that’s just the START of the article.)

      Just read this on Thomas Wictor thread and he is saying that the story was broke to Politico by Jeff Sessions. He also had choice words for all the Sessions doubters.

      So everyone needs to SHUT UP, GROW UP, and be PATIENT.

        I am reading the article. Did a search on Sessions and Attorney General. Only name referenced in the article is Attorney General Eric Holder.

        I’m not saying Sessions didn’t provide this information to politico but I need more proof. Wictor calling me a bastard is not winning me over as a friend.

        Interesting he is calling out Judicial Watch as they have been fighting to get documents released under the FOIA act and has been doing great work.

        Has Katica confirmed Wictor is correct? Has anyone confirmed Wictor’s supposition that Sessions released this information to the Politico Reporter?


        • tazz2293 says:

          Before the hive attacks let me clarify:

          The only reference in the article to an Attorney General is to Attorney General Eric Holder.

          The name Jeff Sessions does not appear in the article.


          • sobriquet4u says:

            Just to clarify…Wictor made the comment on his twitter account. I nor Wictor ever said that Politico made the comment.

            If I weren’t such a luddite I might take the time to figure out how to submit a better post but my brain time is delegated out already.

              You do great.

              Wictor goes off the rails sometimes accusing anyone and everyone of being bast@rds and dumasses (dumbass might not be his word but you get the picture). Wictor does good work, however, sometimes he ticks me off. I guess we all do that sometime or another. Tick people off that is, I know I do.


              • sobriquet4u says:

                It’s ok Tazz. I’m new to all this but I do have a soft spot for him because he fights the fight and seems very intelligent. He does not suffer fools gladly. 🙂

      When the MSM turns on Obama it will be ruthless and merciless as they have been bullied and lied to for 8 years. They are whores but they are starting to realize there is a new boss on the block. Obama has no more cover. There is no more access to trade for favorable stories. The house of cards is starting to collapse. Just seeing a story like this to me is a sign that the media is starting to come to grips with the fact that Trump is here to stay and there is no longer anything to gain from protecting his legacy.

  4. So while reading 8chan came across a post from a Anon giving his twist on what is happening:

    Long time lurker, first time poster. Read the map as a game of chess.

    Q: Want to play a game of chess?

    Trump Queen: OIG/Horowitz: Q: Who knows where all the bodies are buried? Horowitz does. Horwitz was appointed in 2011, but Obama changed the law to make the OIG go through Holder for every document to hide Fast and Furious. H has been trying for 7 frustrating years to gain the documents to expose fraud and waste (like CFPB) and now Trump has given him all 1.2mm of them by raiding Obama’s library. Horowitz knew which documents he needed – the bodies. Cabal can’t complain as Obama appointed him. Read @DaveNYviii.

    Bishop: Sessions: Sessions was denied a Federal Judge role after prosecuting Electoral Fraud (the Marion 3) decades ago. Sessions has been waiting for a chance to expose the fraud for years.

    Q: Two pawns can checkmate a King:
    Cabal Pawn flipped to Trump Knight: Comey. Comey was flipped and now working for Trump. Comey tweeted on 15th about Nuremberg Trials. Military Tribunals? Comey knows where the bodies are too.

    Cabal Pawn flipped to Bishop: Mueller. Used to distract Cabal while investigating FBI/DOJ. Mueller is the media/cabal’s ‘guy’. How can they deny his conclusions now?
    Trump Pawn: Flynn – Mueller used as a huge distraction for the left while OIG / Sessions strategically moved in position for checkmate

    Trump Pawn: The new judge, Matthew Peterson, appointed that ‘couldn’t answer a single question on littigation’ per CNN? His specialty isn’t litigation, it’s Election fraud.

    Cabal Pawns – All of Media / Hollywood / Dems and Rep of Cabal.
    Moves: Alabama Special Election a trap set by Trump and Sessions for Cabal. It worked, they stole the Election. Checkmated Soros.
    Now that the Cabal/left is checkmated, what will they do> Their pawns in congress, media and Hollywood have been systematically removed from the table. There is no way they win. Twitter is now lite up with plans to riot by left if Trump fires Mueller / ‘does anything this week’. More ominously, Cabal could try a huge false flag like aliens or try to kill. They want to kick over the board. Trump Q going dark might be Trump hiding this week until checkmate. And Martial Law just in case.

    I searched for Matthew Peterson and came across this NR article. They are focusing on his inability to answer legal questions. Every media outlet. Perhaps Petersen will oversee election fraud charges in Alabama. This could be why QAnon mentioned the election and Soros lately.

    “Petersen currently serves as a Commissioner on the Federal Election Commission (“FEC”), and previously served as its Chairman…”

    Did the TruePundit article make it here yet?
    “For years James Comey and Robert Mueller, as FBI directors, knew Andrew McCabe maintained problematic contacts with Russian officials including organized crime figures yet did little to investigate the now-FBI deputy director’s relationships even after other agents caught McCabe tampering in Russian-linked cases, FBI sources said.

    And while both Comey and Mueller have used the unlimited resources of the United States government to try and tie President Donald Trump to Russia, the former FBI chiefs largely ignored McCabe’s associations with Russian mobsters and a Putin-linked billionaire under federal investigation by their own Bureau.

    The same Russian billionaire at the center of Mueller’s recent indictment of Paul Manafort.”

    Did people not read the Politico piece because it is three parts and 20 pages long?
    I can’t believe this is not the hottest topic here or at T_D. It seems to me that this is going to permanently distort the whole galactic space-time continuum. And, Session leaked it???

    • phoenixRising says:

      I am reading it now. Obama is Muslim imho… I have heard that John Brennan converted. Does anyone know whether this is true or simply rumor. Huma is associated with the Muslim Brotherhood through her mother… Jarrett is through her father and father-in-law…

      “… Obama had entered office in 2009 promising to improve relations with Iran as part of a broader rapprochement with the Muslim world. On the campaign trail, he had asserted repeatedly that the Bush administration’s policy of pressuring Iran to stop its illicit nuclear program wasn’t working, and that he would reach out to Tehran to reduce tensions.

      The man who would become Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser and then CIA director, John Brennan went further. He recommended in a policy paper that “the next president has the opportunity to set a new course for relations between the two countries” through not only a direct dialogue, but “greater assimilation of Hezbollah into Lebanon’s political system.”

    • KBR says:

      Upthread someone said the only Atty General mentioned in this piece was not Sessions, but Holder. So who is saying Sessions “leaked” it?

      To leak it, itnwould have to be something he should not have authority to do, so even if Sessions gave the info, there may be no “leak” but rather a decision.

      Nevertheless, it is politico so even if the story itself is true, the part about Sessions might be a lie. I dont trust politico at all.


      • Just Scott says:

        I saw another reference to Session on a different site, but couldn’t find it again. On a broad web search, I am not finding any link except the post above.

        This makes me really suspicious being from Politico. I don’t doubt it is 99% true. But, there has to be a motive behind the Sunday evening release of a massive story in works for 8+ years. Then throw in the TruePundit Hanson-McCabe story. Make me think that we are in for major avalanches and landslides this week.


        • mariner says:

          Thomas Wictor suggested in a tweetstorm that AG Sessions disclosed the information to Politico.

          I don’t regard it as proven, but Wictor usually gets stuff like this right.

    • I really do not think it’s as mysterious as it sounds.
      Anybody ever see a power distribution center for a place like that?

      Whatever isn’t burned or damaged in need of repair needs to cleaned of all the carbon from the fire.
      Power has to be totally shut down and all that switch gear needs to be replaced and tested before you can energize the system. Every nut and bolt close to where the fire is has to be checked and torqued to specs.

      Someone said up thread that the transfer switch for the emergency generators was involved.
      That tell me that power lines had to completely replaced with new conduits being installed.

      Power is up and running now is a minor miracle in the 9 hour timeframe. That’s a lot of material and equipment in a small area that had to be worked on.


      • Regina says:

        and they had to wait two hours because of the smoke –
        because firemen don’t have masks that filter smoke, right?


      • distracted2 says:

        That makes sense but why would they keep people from leaving? You have to assume that some of those people were local and slated for outbound flights. Those people would want to go home, right? Especially considering they announced that the power wouldn’t be restored until midnight.

      This is me — Sometimes I work nights — and then come home, eat, get the kids and husband off to work/school. I lay down for a couple hours or 4/6 — wake up and it takes me so much time to get caught up on what has happened during such a short time.

      Never before have times been like this, since I can remember…. The quickness and decisiveness that our President moves is quite amazing!

    Great clip by Ammon Bundy. They are going through almost exactly the same situation as Trump with the FBI, Justice Dept and BLM. Same game plan. They are out of control. Watch!
