BREAKING: House Intelligence Committee Votes To Release The Memo….

As widely anticipated the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has voted to release the majority ‘FISA Memo’ as led by Chairman Devin Nunes.  According to reports it was a party-line vote.  The memo now goes to the executive branch for release approval.

Additionally, the politically constructed counter-memo, led by minority leader Adam Schiff, received a supportive committee vote making it available to the full house of representatives.  However, following the same procedural process as before – the Schiff Memo was not approved for public release (via executive branch), until the full house has an opportunity to review it.

Because the Schiff Memo was not released to the public; and because the committee is making Schiff follow the same rules applied to Nunes; and because the content of the approved release is adverse to Democrats corrupt interests; Adam Schiff rushed to the microphones to complain.

    1) Messaging is poor. Dems are complaining Reps will not take counsel from DOJ and FBI on whether the memo should be released. NO ONE is making the obvious point that no one is interested in taking advice from the accused.

    2) I know its painful, but tune into MSNBC and CNN to grasp their story lines. There is a serious disconnect here. For the White Hats to truly win, they need to persuade Dems, Just as Dems persuaded Reps in Watergate. But at this stage Dems truly remain in denial. They seriously believe this is nothing more than an effort to get rid of the fine patriots in DOJ and FBI so that Mueller (“one of the finest men I’ve ever known”) can be dispatched, protecting Trump from prosecution for his crimes. We all know The Memo is intended to be the beginning of reeducation, but its a tall hill to climb. The manner of the release of The Memo created a certain amount of wrangling and hand wringing, and frankly that played into the hands of Dem spin.

      Schiff, Pelosi and their cronies in the MSM will never admit anything.

      It’s one of Alinskys rules.

      My two cents worth says a few Dems will turn, or be dumped.

      The leadership of the Dems. They don’t care about anything but their lies.

      In my view that is a good thing.

      Three Liberal leaning folks I know that have been acquainted with the CTH, and our own Jordan Peterson story. Are outraged, and are having a hard time reconciling with the MSMs disinformation campaign.

      Uhhhh . . . WHAT? Are you new here? You must be because otherwise you would know that the Dems aren’t just “in denial” about something they don’t believe to be true (for Pete’s sake, only ONE Dem read it the memo even though ALL of them had the opportunity to do so).

      There is no “persuading [the] Dems” to believe anything because they are guilty as hell!!! If you were to somehow do that, they would be agreeing to their own crimes, and that ain’t gonna happen!

      This is their attempt to deflect, confuse, and point the finger at ANYONE other than themselves. And, by the way, the memo isn’t just “the beginning of re-education.” It’s the beginning of the process for charging people with CRIMES and then punishing them.

      And finally, if you haven’t figured it out yet, the Dems and the media (and many of the Repubs) are all on the same team, so NO MATTER how the memo was released, the media was going to spin it to look bad for Trump!

      I don’t believe they are in denial, it seems to me that they know they are wrong and just cover up for each other, because in the end they are protecting Obama, who probably also has dirt on all of them.

      Democrats cannot all plead ignorance. Schiff saw the classified material upon which this Memo is based long ago. If nothing else, he must have told his Democrat colleagues that the Memo is factual. Or did he? I believe he had not looked at the Memo until just before it went to the White House (correct me if I am wrong). So…

      Hmmm – Then taking a line from ‘Stripes’ – “And then Cognitive Dissonance set in.”

      In the field of psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental discomfort (psychological stress) experienced by a person who simultaneously holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values.

      • NY SLIMES WASHINGTON — A secret, highly contentious Republican memo reveals that Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein approved an application to extend surveillance of a former Trump campaign associate shortly after taking office last spring, according to three people familiar with it.

        The renewal shows that the Justice Department under President Trump saw reason to believe that the associate, Carter Page, was acting as a Russian agent. But the reference to Mr. Rosenstein’s actions in the memo — a much-disputed document that paints the investigation into Russian election meddling as tainted from the start — indicates that Republicans may be moving to seize on his role as they seek to undermine the inquiry.

        The memo’s primary contention is that F.B.I. and Justice Department officials failed to adequately explain to an intelligence court judge in initially seeking a warrant for surveillance of Mr. Page that they were relying in part on research by an investigator, Christopher Steele, that had been financed by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

          Is this another instance of the leaks are real, the news is fake?

          Also, I could be wrong, but I thought Nunes said the documents he saw (which this memo is based on, right?) had nothing to do with Russia.

          Hmmm . . where’s that suspicious cat when you need him?

            Well the Headline is deliberately misleading. This is just for cover of the conspiracy, of which the NYT is actually part.
            The Memo shows the deep involvement of Rosenstein and all Democrats knew that last year already. Why do you think Rosenstein was approved 98-2 and Sessions only 52-48.
            Trumps administration knew this also. It was a case of keeping your friends close, but your enemies closer.
            The whole Mueller SC was all the time only kabuki.

          Sounds like it was written by Schiff. What kind of journalist would describe the memo as “much disputed” without mentioning that the only people who are diisputing it are Dems?

          The other supporting material for the FISC approval was, I think, the computer link to the Russian bank–which turned out to be a nothing (a solicitation for business to which there was never a response from the Trump end, as I recall). Not terribly adequate…

    From the Pen of C R Lord


    It’s time to fit the Obamas,
    In some lovely orange pajamas,
    The kind that match up well,
    With a federal prison cell.

    It’s time that they are learning,
    That what they’ve done is earning,
    Special treatment they’ve been fretting,
    But they’ll never be forgetting.

    It’s time that our great nation,
    Give them a long vacation,
    To a place they can’t cause trouble,
    They should do it on the double.

    It’s time to prove our system,
    Only temporarily missed ’em,
    And so justice wouldn’t fail them,
    The time has come to jail them.

    It’s time for mainstream fakers,
    Who thought they could be takers,
    To go down in infamy,
    For the entire world to see.

    It’s time the liberal haters,
    And RINO imitators,
    Taste the DNC disgrace,
    And join Obama in that place.

    It’s well past time to decide,
    To roll with the President’s tide,
    And make America great again,
    Find healing from our national pain.

    It’s time for one more thing,
    To bow to Heaven’s King,
    Return to our forefather’s God,
    Receive his love and not his rod.

    It’s time for faith and family,
    It’s time for life and liberty,
    It’s time that tyrants understand,
    America is in God’s hand. – NOT THEIRS!

      I want to offer to you a poem I wrote when Obama was busy destroying America on purpose and things looked very gloomy and dim. I offer this as a comparison to the poem I posted above in this time of hope for the restoration of our Republic.

      May 28, 2011

      America the beautiful? Is this the land we knew?
      One nation under God we say, the red, white and blue,
      But tyrants now have gained the rule of our beloved land,
      And God who blessed this country is ignorantly banned.

      He isn’t welcome in our schools or in our government.
      This nation now has closed their ears to those that God has sent,
      To warn them of their foolishness and all their wickedness,
      How long this arrogance will last is anybody’s guess.

      We somehow seem to think that God will bless us just the same,
      As we reject his holy word and live in open shame.
      We murder children in the womb and flaunt perverted sex,
      As daily, and without remorse we scorn the holy text.

      Like Rome of old we laugh and play and party on in sin,
      While evil men have plotted to destroy us from within,
      As blind as Rome we never stop to think about our fate,
      Until, like Rome, our country dies and then t’will be too late.

      Is this to be the final word and will this nation fall,
      Or will we somehow find a way to once again stand tall?
      If we will bow before God’s throne in true humility,
      The God we spurned will heal our land and once more make it free.

      Will we be willing to admit our sins at mercy’s door
      Or will we choose to block God out as we have done before?
      I pray that all who read these words will turn to God and pray,
      That he might spare this nation and wash our sins away.

    The release of the memo is just the beginning. We already know that the Dems and other Trump enemies are gonna claim most of it is biased, misrepresented, or even entirely made up. But that’s actually a GOOD thing. Because when they do that, it opens the door. As each specific point in the memo is questioned by the Dems, we’ll hear a counter from Trump and the White Hats: “Alright, let’s declassify the documents and testimony that underpins and proves this point.” And one by one, that’s how it goes.

    At the same time, as names are revealed of each of the conspirators, there’ll be calls to indict that person, which will create a rush to see who can be the first to flip and get the best “deal”. The domino effect shouldn’t take long to kick in. At that point, even our fake news media won’t be able to ignore what’s happening.

    And where will it all end? I think we all know where it SHOULD wind up… hard to say at the moment whether it’ll be allowed to go that far, though. But I’m much more hopeful now than I was just a few months ago.

    The real short story to this drama is Fusion was/is probably a paid (still?) unregistered Russian foreign agent working in behalf of eliminating the Magnitsky act, was receiving money from Russians simultaneously to putting the “dossier” together, and if you toss in the nice little dissection by it’s very well possible that the FBI/DOJ allowed an unregistered paid foreign agent of RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA access to RAW NSA DATA.

    The public release of the memo might make a substantial impact on a major player rarely mentioned by the media, namely the FISA Court itself. Courts rarely initiate any action; rather, Courts are designed to resolve disputes initiated by others (typically by the Executive Branch via DOJ). However, Courts, including FISA Courts, have the power to initiate contempt proceedings. If the Nunes Memo is publicly released and if it contradicts a submission made by DOJ/FBI to the FISA Court, then the Judge would have the power to order a Show Cause Hearing about why the Applicant and Affiant should not be held in contempt. Unlike a normal search warrant, the FISA law makes it a felony to submit false applications.

    DNI Director Coats has already declassified part of the FISC Ruling (heavily redacted). The FISA Judges presumptively have no control over what other FISC Rulings may be released (or un-redacted) by either the Executive or Legislative branches. By initiating a Contempt Show Cause Hearing, a FISA Judge may be able to shift historical blame to the Applicant/Affiant for essentially tricking the FISA Judge into issuing an improper warrant.
