  1. A2 says:

    Indian American lawyer Kashyap “Kash” Patel is the author [ probably one of] of the Nunes House memo. Patel is on the staff of Representative Devin Nunes, the Republican who is chairman of the committee.
    He formerly worked for the National Security Division of the Justice Department’s National Security Division as a counter-terrorism prosecutor. He joined the committee as a senior counter-terrorism counsel last April.

    It seems to me that what has been taking place is a rebellion. The last rebellion saw President Lincoln suspend Harbeus Corpus to go after collaborators of the rebellion. The precedent is set. I would not mind seeing that repeated by PDJT today

      Very greatful for SD’s reporting on all of this. I’m sure he puts a lot of tim and effort into this. Unfortunately,Trumps hands maybe more tied than we think. The single biggest market drop in 2 years happens on the day we get the nearest to draining the swamp. Coincidence. I don’t think so. It’s a not so veiled warning to Trump from intelligence Community./big business, /IMF/World Banks/ that he better back off. Now I understand why he’s not getting rid of more swamp dwellers. They will tolerate a wimp like sessions, but not a real man. This all maybe even worse than Even SD had been telling us

        I think the market drop is more coincidence. Based on my limited understanding, investors appear to be worried that a tightening labor market and rising wages is going to lead to inflation and more Fed rate increases than planned. The market will recover.

          I agree that the market will recover. The yield on Federal Treasuries has increased to 2.,85% so people can place their money their rather than the stock market and get a guaranteed yield. We’ve returned to very strange territory where great economic news roils the market and upsets it. I’ve lost all of my gains of the last month in just the last week but I am holding my position because I trust that once equilibrium is re-established the market will find its legs again.

            I think people are starting to ask where the top of the market is. There’s a lot of fearmongering about the “biggest bubble in history” but we’re also in the most business friendly economic climate in history. So people aren’t going to be able to correctly predict what happens here.

          Don’t forget the entire market context. It has advanced something like 40% since the Election without a normal pullback. Trees don’t grow to the sky, even under President Trump. This may well be the market opportunity the sidelined investors have been waiting for.

        The stock market always zig-zags. This is just a correction. Temporary and expected. Lots of reasons for the market drop. Friday end-of-week sell-off, profit taking sell-off, realigning portfolios, Fed interest rate increase jitters, mergers, weak earnings reports, movement into bonds, etc. etc. The memo release as a cause is pretty far down the list, if it’s there at all. The stock market is pretty nonchalant about the media chaos surrounding President Trump. After all, it’s been a whole year now of the media crying wolf. The IMF/World Banks have their own monetary problems to deal with. The Intelligence Community is far from intelligent and they definitely have much bigger problems to focus on right now and couldn’t affect the markets anymore than they could affect the weather. The stock exchange has safeguards for shutting off trading if they find there is too quick of a sell-off or a coordinated attack to crash the market. Come next week, when buying opportunities are taken, the market will recover.

        It’s good to remember at this point: the market dropped 1000 pts. in one day during the Obama administration.
        This memo drop was going to create shockwaves in the market. What one has to look at is the overall trend — which has been booming.
        Honestly, I wouldn’t mind seeing the market cool off a bit and level out — in the meantime, what Main Street is doing is the thing to really watch imhao. Let’s hope that the plan to decouple Main St. from Wall St. continues apace and is successful to some extent — the President can use the market fluctuation to sell this plan methinks.

        Did we all notice that the market dropped 666 points? This is not a coincidence.

        There is a spiritual war going on behind the material world that we see.

        I was strongly reminded of the story of the Exodus this past evening. Here is the first paragraph of Exodus 7:

        Then the Lord said to Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet. 2 You are to say everything I command you, and your brother Aaron is to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go out of his country. 3 But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and though I multiply my signs and wonders in Egypt, 4 he will not listen to you. Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and with mighty acts of judgment I will bring out my divisions, my people the Israelites. 5 And the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I stretch out my hand against Egypt and bring the Israelites out of it.”

        When God sent Moses to confront Pharaoh, and Pharaoh questioned Moses’ claim that there was a God of the universe beyond the gods of Egypt, God had Moses cast down his staff and it became a serpent. Pharaoh then had his magicians and sorcerers come and perform the same act. Moses’ serpent then swallowed up Pharaoh’s serpents.

        The continued “resistance” of some in our government is akin to the hardening of Pharaoh’s heart, and who can say that God is not behind even this, to make it into an object lesson? Mark Twain said that history does rhyme. It can be comical at times, I recall watching a teaching a year or so ago (I think it may have been Joyce Meyer) about how Pharaoh preferred to spend the night with frogs in his bed and all over his palace rather than giving in to what God required immediately. It reminds one of a child having a temper tantrum. For some reason, POTUS 44 immediately comes to mind.

        Make no mistake, our Lion has been sent by God and we will be victorious. We will swallow up the enemy.

          Corruption is like mold. If it is not completely cleaned out, it grows back the moment the conditions are right. Some of the critters implicated have been coerced against their will through threats and blackmail. It is possible that given a chance, they will never let themselves be put in that position again. But there are others that willingly practiced corrupt acts because of their innate characters. They are the ones who repent when caught, but are easily tempted back into their old ways the moment they have opportunity. So I think that God will allow all to choose their own fate just as Pharaoh did….

          Draining the swamp will not be enough. The entire pool will have to be completely sanitized, and this will take time. God has been preparing President Trump his entire life for such a day as this, but he is the point man backed by white hats from all over the world who have been planning this with him for decades (my opinion). God is in this, and you are right, Evelyn, light will banish darkness!

  3. What is the story of McCabes testimony in Dec. 2017?
    Was that closed or was that a public hearing?
    This is a key question. Is there any way to know or look back at what he testified to?

    At that hearing is supposedly when McCabe said;
    “Deputy Director McCabe testified before the Committee in December 2017 that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISC without the Steele dossier information,”

    Nunes said that was his testimony and that anything different would not be factual in the interview with Brett Baier.
    Can that be checked out?

    James Kalstrom noted the players purgered themselves in federal court giving false testimony to a federal judge to get the FISA warrants approved. I think that route is perhaps the primary goal of this particular memo. And perhaps others like it. Get the process charge going and move up the ladder. You get the street dealer to reveal his sources.

    I have been a treeper for a few years but never commented before. I feel I need to after today. I am a Canadian and I have a fairly long message, hope you don’t mind.

    I think a few key things this memo surfaces and needs to be hi-lighted and we have to wake the blind Lefties; who would give their freedom away to be right and defeat President Trump.

    1. This memo just begins the numbing process so more criminality can come out without destroying these people. The left and MSM will overplay the “nothing here” comments and after umpteenth times normal and undecided will see through their crap as more comes out.
    2. They are missing the terrifying aspect of if these actions are not held seriously accountable and the mechanisms allowing this closed or corrected, the next extreme left or right whom harnesses this power will weopanize the Republic past a point of no return.
    3. We are lucky they were over confident and banking on Trump being defeated before the election so they exposed their disdain and proves why we cannot relent and high level punishment needs to happen. They have proven they won’t quit to get their result. Election fail, let’s try deligitimizing fail, let’s set him up to impeach- I think fail, next will be the ultimate treason on President Trump.
    4. If Hillary had won and she further harnessed this corrupt power and built more democrat extreme loyalists throughout the government for 8 more years; the penetration and secrecy would be at a point of no return. I am not sure a republican could ever win again, Essentially free elections would be a fallacy.
    5. The controlling interests of MSM also need to be looked at and like a business monopoly cannot have dominant control it can be too powerful(this includes Facebook and online media filtering).
    6. Make no mistake this was an attack on America and it’s way of life and it’s constitution . It was done by global loyalists under the guise of Americans blaming Russians and their opponents (Trump). Canadians like me and really around the world need to care you succeed. If America fails here the world will have little chance, I really feel this is the case. Look how weak and the lack of strength and identity formerly strong countries like Germany and UK are now. They are falling because they do not have a constitution like you, protect it with all you have.

    God speed to the USA you have more silent friends then you know. Protect your Potus, protect your constitution. We need you God bless the USA.

      CanadaTrump, thank you for your post and sharing your thoughts. I agree with everything you have related, if this ship isn’t righted, our Republic will be lost, and it’s still very much in jeopardy as our DOJ and FBI and other intelligence are a mess. Obama really polluted every agency, and the worst seems to be the DOJ and FBI, with very weak cabinet appointments.

      Many of us do believe they really wanted the U.S. to go down and we all live like serfs in a one world government, that is the end game. And they are using immigration and political correctness to do it. I am still worried about our elections, I don’t think much has been done to fix them to prevent fraud.

      I pray for Canada, too, it seems to be getting worse also. We used to be such strong nations with great logic and sense. Our education systems are making things worse by brainwashing our youth that ensures this madness and ideology continues.

      Great comment CanadaTrump.

      I too am Canadian and I am concerned about another aspect of things. That is, the link between the Obama-Clinton gang and our ‘Obama-lite’ Prime Minister. Here’s a link hinting at the problem:

      https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/why-obama-and-trudeau-are-so-close/article27666651/

      I also remember reading during the election that led to Trudeau’s win that political operatives from the Obama camp were helping him. Can’t seem to find a link to that at the moment but I am sure about that recollection.

      So, while I am extremely happy, and getting happier by the day, about the Trump presidency, I still wonder what kind of rot is now happening in Canada. It has always been there but I’m guessing that it is now worse than ever. I can’t imagine how bad it would have been if Clinton had won!

      Also, just a reminder to everyone. 60.5% of the votes cast in that election did NOT go to Trudeau.

    “McFarland is a former deputy national security adviser in the Trump administration and former Fox News analyst. She was first nominated in May, but her nomination was in doubt amid questions about her communications with ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn.

    Flynn was fired by Trump in February for misleading senior administration officials about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. He pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to FBI agents and is now cooperating with Mueller’s investigation.”

      It’s very interesting that NO ONE in any good blog or opinion website that I read has offered a strong analysis of Sessions’ apparent inactions and failure to support the President. I am relatively new here at CTH but quickly became a regular reader due to the apparent level of awareness here not apparent anywhere else. Did I miss a good report on Sessions here in CTH? Elsewhere one finds lots of quick opinions, many are funny, but Sessions appears to be the Joker in the deck of players. I just haven’t read any “insider” knowledge of much of what he’s doing to earn his paychecks other than chasing pot heads.

      After watching Swallwell’s disgusting performance on Tucker, the Democrat strategy is painfully clear to me. They are going to keep putting up a front that there is evidence of Trump colluding with Russia, but they can’t disclose it because it’s classified and they want to protect national security. In other words, they are going to rely on the stupidity of the American voter.
      I was disappointed in Tucker’s performance. He let Swallwell control the flow of the conversation. Tucker should have been smacking him upside the head with damning facts and asking him to account for them. Instead he asked him how he felt. Tucker is going to have to be on his game when he goes up against these lying bastards.

        The Left’s game is to do what you saw Swallwell do just now. Talk in circles about anything and everything but NEVER answer a direct question.
        This is how everyone on the Left attempts to communicate.

        Go try to talk to anyone of them about any topic. Within seconds you will go from the memo to, as in this case, the police, you’re a traitor, defending criminals and anything but the memo.

        I liked that Tucker just ended the whole thing the way he did.
        But there is no game for tucker to be on. The Left for what it’s worth is completely crazy and very unwilling to hear any view that they are not in favor of.
        Tuck asking for an apology was funny. The left doesn’t do that either.
        They are totally convinced they are right and nothing you will ever say will change that.

Written 12 months ago ” McCabe, the second highest ranking FBI official, emphatically declared at the invite-only gathering with raised voice: “Fuck Flynn and then we Fuck Trump,” according to direct sources. Many of his top lieutenants applauded and cheered such rhetoric. A scattered few did not. This was one of several such meetings held in seclusion among key FBI leaders since Trump was elected president, FBI sources confirm. At the congregation where McCabe went off the political rails and vowed to destroy Flynn and Trump, there were as many as 16 top FBI officials, inside intelligence sources said. No lower-level agents or support personnel were present.”

    The deep sadness in all of this is that virtually NO ONE in the DOJ and the FBI stepped up to say ‘this is wrong’. If someone did, they are probably no longer with the DOJ or the FBI.

    The MSM is complicit in all of this as was the case of the Nazi propaganda machines aiding the Nazi cause….by COOPERATING with the rogue elements of the DOJ and FBI. Civil Liberties were trampled on…where is the ACLU hiding? Or do they even care?

    The MSM defense, and I am sure the defense we will see in the days ahead is the same sort of logic and excuses as was at the Nuremberg trials. ‘Legal Positivism’ was exposed at Nuremberg for what it was then, and today still is: a Fraud. Why: [cite Forbes}…’To the legal positivist, there are no immutable principles, no moral absolutes. All is relative, and human legislation and regulation are more a matter of convenience or expedience or personal preference than attempts to codify permanent standards of right and wrong. ….The unspoken assumption of legal positivism—which is an important pillar of the progressive and socialist ideologies that predominate in the social science departments on most college campuses today—is that the most enlightened members of society should use legislation to design and build a “great society.”

    IMO the perfect example of Legal Positivism on display: James Comey.

      I have a memory of a report about the Comey firing and RR threatening to quit over taking blame for firing. It was obvious fake news but one small thing made my radar come on. It was an exchange reported to be between Rosenstein and a confidant of his. Basically it was a push back on the story but it made me think otherwise. The just was his friend urged him to resign and “get out of there with your good name” or something and the quote attributed to Rosenstein was “no place in world I’d rather be at this moment”. Soon as I heard it I thought that actually meant he wanted in on the impeachment of Trump. Just something I’ve thought on a lot lately as that was nearly a year ago but it has stuck with me as all this mess has unfolded.

  41. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) revealed Friday that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee would examine other agencies, including the State Department, after releasing a controversial memo alleging surveillance abuses.

    Speaking on Fox News just hours after Republicans on the committee released a memo alleging surveillance abuses by the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ), Nunes said the panel was moving to “phase two” of its investigation.

    “We are in the middle of what I call phase two of our investigation, which involves other departments, specifically the State Department and some of the involvement that they had in this,” Nunes said.

    “That investigation is ongoing and we continue work towards finding answers and asking the right questions to try to get to the bottom of what exactly the State Department was up to in terms of this Russia investigation.”

    Nunes was asked whether his panel would be releasing additional memos as part of their probe after the White House declassified information to allow Nunes to release a memo alleging that senior FBI and DOJ officials abused their powers to spy on members of President Trump’s campaign. http://thehill.com/homenews/house/372109-nunes-says-house-intel-panel-looking-at-state-dept-involvement-in-russia-probe

It occurs to me that by the time Page is called to testify or be put on he may be judged non compos mentis and the idea that the FBI would continue to monitor the activities and conversations of someone they surely understood to be slipping mentally is disgraceful.
