      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, Phill Mud, David Petraeus, Michael Hayden & former Attorney General Eric Holder…”

      If true, the usual drivel. These super smart people calling PDJT an orange faced baby with funny hair (wow, that’s original! never heard THAT before!) and how he couldn’t be trusted with nation’s secrets so they must save the world by feeding him false information so he doesn’t start WW3, and OMG they hate Mike Flynn so much they can’t stand it.

      It’s like the Mean Girls table in the junior high school cafeteria. Seriously, these people are supposed to be our revered elites? Not sure whether to throw up or go grab my shovel and rid my garden of vermin. Or if I were a tech wizard, I’d send each of their phones a video of Toby Keith singing “How Do You Like Me Now?” on an endless loop….

    I said this earlier but Trump’s lawyers would be the most incompetent in history if they let him interview with Mueller. They are nothing but perjury traps. NEVER talk to law enforcement.

      If I recall correctly, the last time this issue was brought up, it was mentioned that PTrump doesn’t have to appear. He can have Mueller submit all questions in writing, and then, after sitting with his team of lawyers and advisors, he can answer in writing.

    I have sat back and tried to follow along on all this with the SC and now all the corruption of the FBI, CIA etc. I get mad at the goings on and it appears nothing is happening. But one thing I hold on to is PT knows what he is doing. He knows that no one in the Republican party can break this case wide open. It has to be Dem’s who finds the corruption and that means Mueller and all the others have to be able to bring all their corruption to the forefront. It’s the only way this is stopped. The dem’s are doing their selves more harm than they will ever do to PT. If Sessions was running this show it would be torn apart and unbelievable. No way would they ever believe a repub-it has to be a dem. So if PT is happy then I am happy also.

    Ted Malloch is covering Davos for Infowars.
    Malloch is a brilliant guy , a Davos insider for many years.and close to Trump. He was expected to be the US ambassador to EU, but It was too controversial, he’s very anti EU
    So if anyone wants Malloch’s take on this year’s Davos, it’s available

    The Humanitarian Hoax of DACA: Killing America With Kindness – hoax 20

      Excerpt from the article above…

      “We cannot allow DACA Dreamers to tilt America toward leftist socialism which robs all Americans of their liberty except the elitists in power. Choosing the Dreamer’s dreams over the American dream is a lethal choice that will end our constitutional republic – but that was always the point of the humanitarian hoax of DACA – to kill America with “kindness.”

    Again, there is so very much going on — that I do not know exactly where to put my comments.

    With my “tinfoil” hat firmly in place:

    (1) Has anyone been able to ever account for where Obama was during Benghazi? He was missing FOR HOURS. According to Lame Cherry (tinfoil), he was entertaining little boys at the time.

    (2) Has anyone ever followed the lives of those who voted to impeach Bill Clinton? What happened to them since? Was there anything in their lives “out of the ordinary”?

    And this last tinfoil question comes from George Webb. Who thought to follow the lives of those who voted to impeach Bill Clinton?

    Hillary Clinton is EVIL. Bill Clinton is just a horn dog.

    Hillary Clinton is vindictive, and her perceived enemies ALWAYS pay.

    What I’m seeing on Tucker is……I don’t even know what the hell this is.
    Woman psychologist trying to defend ‘abortion humor’. She admits abortion is ending a life–the life of a baby. She actually said BABY not fetus. Trying to explain why there’s a stigma attached to abortion and how it’s a no win situation for mom and baby. She’s all over the place attempting to defend abortion but keeps inadvertently (it seems) explaining why/how abortion is so horrible.
    Wow. She did not have her talking points rehearsed.

      it was crazy, she obviously had someone feeding her talking points in her ear as well.
      but it’s just sickening that they want hollywood to “normalize” abortion like they did gay sex with broke back mountain.

      if this doesn’t make people cut the cord nothing will.

      This abortion section begins at 29:00
      She is was the least clever person I have EVER seen with the ear bud. She made it obvious asking for Tucker to wait for a minute while she obviously listening to the ear bud.
      She acted oddly and with her dark her down over most of her face she looked dour and very somber while she seemed spaced out. Odd and weird.

        It was weird because she was mostly arguing the anti abortion talking points v. arguing for the abortion rights sides. Interesting that the psychologist admits that she sees a lot of women who are traumatized by the “choice”. Glad that is getting out because many young women believe it is not a big deal until after they have made an uninformed “choice”.

    Comey ‘Friend’ Who Leaked FBI Memos Now Claims To Be His Attorney

    Daniel Richman, the law professor who leaked classified FBI records to the media at Comey’s request, refused to disclose when exactly he became Comey’s attorney.


    How does this affect attorney-client privilege?

    Comey violated FBI policy by leaking the memos; Comey’s now lawyer/friend violated the law by releasing classified info to the press.

    So many of you have seen the youtube video of the Orange County CA homeless tent city . Its 3 miles long, near the Angels baseball stadium. I thought it was more east. Anyway, the sheriff has started clearing people out, but theyre heading east into the real burbs, san bernardino and riverside counties. I guess Disneyland didnt want them around during the summer money months.

    “Apart from a visibly heavier presence of law enforcement officers and news media, the daily routines of hundreds of homeless people living along the Santa Ana River Trail went on as usual even as a plan to gradually evict them from their tent encampments got underway.

    Hardly anyone appeared to be packing up on Monday, Jan. 22, the day Orange County Public Works set for closure of a three-mile-long stretch of the bike trail from Ball Road in Anaheim to Interstate 5 in Orange to do cleanup work.”

    CIA Dir Mike Pompeo spoke at the American Enterprise Institute today.
    Speaking to a mostly friendly audience, interviewed by Marc Theissen, in a friendly environment, this is one of the best listens yet.

    Dir Pompeo gives a short talk, followed by a lengthier Q & A session. Dir Pompeo gives an in-depth look at the President’s daily PDB (amazing, really), and covers a wide range of topics, mostly NoKo, but also Syria, Russia, S America, and other places.

    Dir Pompeo speaks of how CIA bureaucracy has been crippling progress and agility at the CIA. Dir Pompeo is dismantling the interior bureaucracy, delegating authority and responsibility, and identifying those to be held responsible. Failure is not necessarily punished, but first corrected and lessons learned. Results are primary.

    Dir Pompeo makes occasional references to the previous administration. Dir Pompeo has delegated 40% of his (Pompeo’s) daily decisions, and spends more time w/his own directors who are expected to know all of what are their team’s tasks. Brennan really did make all decisions himself, it would seem. No wonder nothing was accomplished.

    Dir Pompeo has re-directed the CIA’s focus from collecting sigint – Pompeo says his “partner” does that (make of that what you will) – and the CIA is back in the business of humint, stealing and keeping secrets. Back to being a secret agent man. Woohoo!

    CIA Dir Pompeo scores a direct hit on Swamp Creature Martha Radditz near the end, whose Q’s were idiotic at best. Well done, Dir Pompeo, well done, and thank you.

    This one is def worth your time.
    Did you know one can train the ear to listen at higher speeds? The speed on this one can be 1.25 – 1.5x (mine are at least 2x). Give it a try; your ear will learn.

      This is not the kind of thing I would normally see or listen to, especially that long, but I found it hugely encouraging and feel that President Trump’s trust in Pompeo is well placed, as far as being highly focused on providing accurate and timely information. Pompeo, for his part, seems to be very confident in President Trump.

      Thank you for posting this.

      A spokesman for the House Intelligence Committee took a shot at Democrats for pushing the false narrative.

      “When Democrats demand investigations of a hashtag but find no cause for concern after the FBI loses five months’ of critical evidence concerning the Strzok text messages, then someone’s priorities are out of whack,” Jack Langer told The Daily Caller.

    Pres Trump has changed the focus of not just the world, but of Davos!

    Listen to the first 3 min 40 sec of this forum.

    The forum moderator, Jonathan Tepperman, Editor-in-Chief, Foreign Policy Group, USA, shows that the established “global consensus” world order has been dismantled and replaced by bi-lateral deals. Tepperman not only credits the U.S., but lists several areas where the “global consensus” ideology has not worked.

    Have not yet listened the remainder of the Swamp Creatures, but this one looks to be entertaining – at least 1.5x speed is recommended.

    Swamp Creatures are such fun to watch in their little fishbowls. Swim, little fishies, swim.

    Oh, what the heck. Just dump the fish food in the fish bowl after watching and move on…
