This is Madness – The Media are Just as Complicit In The DOJ Corruption and FISA Abuse…

We shared a discussion thread a few weeks ago about how the media are enmeshed within the entire story of the DOJ and FBI corruption.  The media engagements with the parties swirling around the Clinton-Steele Dossier and DOJ corruption are so pervasive they cannot currently report on the story without exposing their own duplicity.  Michael Isikoff found that reality yesterday when he discovered his reporting was being used by the FBI.

FBI investigator Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page have been shown in their text messages to be leaking stories from the Clinton Investigation, the Trump investigation and the Mueller investigation to journalists at Politico, The Wall Street Journal and Washington Post. –SEE HERE

Additionally, Christopher Steele has stated in U.K. court records the person in charge of the Clinton Campaign’s opposition research firm, Glenn Simpson from Fusion GPS,  arranged and coordinated for Mr. Steele to talk to several journalists (CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Yahoo News and Mother Jones) while Mr. Steele was also the primary source of information for the FBI investigators (including Strzok and Page):

(Source – page #8)

Make sure you read that full response from Christopher Steele above to see the scope of the media engagements he was conducting.

As more evidence surfaces the relationship between journalists, Fusion-GPS, Chris Steele and the media’s DOJ/FBI sources begins blending together.  The FBI was using media reports, which were based on Fusion-GPS pitches, to bolster its investigative documents to the FISA court:

According to the U.K records, Christopher Steele reports this September 2016 meeting with Isikoff was arranged by Glenn Simpson. According to Michael Isikoff today on his podcast, he met Christopher Steele at a Washington, D.C. hotel in Sept. 2016. They were joined by his “old friend” Glenn Simpson, the founder of opposition research firm Fusion GPS, who Isikoff now defines as a “private investigator.”

So Christopher Steele was meeting with journalists, the journalists were writing articles; the FBI was leaking to media and simultaneously citing those same articles as underlying evidence to support their counterintelligence investigations; and all of this was used to validate the investigative documents the FBI was receiving from Christopher Steele; who, along with the leaking FBI officials, was also the source of the media articles.

FUBAR!  This is exponentially bonkers.

This is a circle of information, all coming from Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS, who was the opposition research firm being financed by Hillary Clinton, along with FBI officials who were using their own strategic leaks to validate their own investigation.

Think about the scale of the reporting, and reporting on reporting, of anonymous leaks, false leaks, lies from “people with knowledge of the matter”, “government officials involved in the matter”, “people familiar with the matter”, “government sources” etc. all going in one unified and semi-coordinated direction – against the aggregate Trump administration.

Now, it actually gets even more convoluted.

Christopher Steele has sworn under oath that he met with multiple journalists (at least eight organizations) in September, mid-October, and late-October 2016: “at Fusion’s instruction“.  (pdf page #7)

Overlay upon that sworn admission with what Glenn Simpson (Fusion-GPS) told the House Intelligence Committee while also under oath about his involvement in sharing information derived from Christopher Steele:

(Testimony – pdf link, page #147)

…”without my knowledge and against my wishes”? 


FBI Director James Comey admits to leaking his ‘memos’ to the New York Times.  FBI #2 Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Attorney Lisa Page are caught in their text messages leaking to Politico, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post.

The FBI is caught, in at least one FISA application, using Yahoo media reports provided by them AND their investigative source Christopher Steele to establish a basis for FISA “Title I” surveillance; the most intrusive and wide-open search and surveillance authority possible.

The Clinton Campaign is paying Fusion GPS to conduct opposition research against Donald Trump.  In addition to Glenn Simpson pushing that opposition research into the media, Fusion GPS is also providing that opposition research –including information from contacts with media– directly to the FBI:

(pdf link – page #4)

… In addition to using the Fusion-GPS opposition research to underpin their counterintelligence investigation, the FBI then turn around and leak the same opposition research information to the media to create secondary support for their counterintelligence investigation.

Tell me again how the media can possibly write about this now?

The problem is not just corruption with the U.S. Justice System, the DOJ and the FBI; the problem is corruption within the media.

We’re talking about thousands of hours of media TV pundits, thousands more columns written, and almost every scintilla of it based on originating intelligence sources -from the larger intelligence system- that are now being exposed as duplicitous and conspiratorial in the scale of their malicious intent.

This larger story-line has traveled in one direction. The narrative has only traveled in one direction. Each thread converging on codependent trails for collective stories all going in one direction. One big engineered narrative endlessly pushed. Think about how far the collective media have traveled with this story over the past eighteen months.

Now, in a period of a few weeks, it has become increasingly obvious the collective journey, using all that expended effort, was going in the wrong direction.

The media have fully invested themselves in eighteen months of narrative distribution in only one direction. Not a single MSM entity has questioned their travel as a result of false leaks or false sources in the totality of time they have covered the DOJ and FBI story.

Nothing within their collective need to will-an-outcome will change the media’s proximity to facts when the truthful story behind the DOJ and FBI corruption is finally exposed. The media are so far away from the place where this story ends, they have no inherent capability to even begin to travel in the opposite direction, toward the truth.

The only way they could align with the truth is to admit that virtually every scintilla of their reportage over the past 18 months was inherently false. There’s not a single media outlet capable of doing that.

Think about a New York Times, CNN, New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, Mother Jones, Yahoo News or Washington Post journalist now having to write an article deconstructing an entire foundation of lies they participated in creating.

Do we really think such a catastrophic level of corrupted journalism could reconstitute into genuine reporting of fact-based information?

    Borrowed from an avid U.S. patriot:

    When the United States (Congress) did nothing in 2009 to prevent an identity fraud con-artist from being sworn in as the putative president, they set in stone they would never allow any action by Congress which even might reveal and have acted on the truth about Barry. Every member of Congress violated their sworn oath, “protect the Constitution from her enemies, both foreign and domestic.” They gave America’s government and her military to the enemy. Nancy Pelosi was especially guilty in covering for Obama’s ineligibility. After Obama was sworn in it became the job of Congress, especially leadership, to insure Obama was officially considered a legitimate president, hopefully, forever. They do this to protect themselves and the others complicit in the Obama fraud from being charged with what they consider a, “crime too big to prosecute.

    Revealing the truth about Obama would open a can of worms no one in Congress or the Obama media wants to deal with. Imagine a constituent of a member of Congress asking them why they allowed a fake commander-in-chief to send their loved-ones into battle, where that person was wounded, or even killed. That is just one of hundreds of reasons why Congress considered it too late to do anything about Obama once they failed to stop him from being sworn in back in 2009.

    Obama is protected by the complicity of people whose job it is to bring him to justice, as are others who could lead to Obama. This is why there was no chance of Obama being impeached or investigated during his 8 years as the putative president, no matter what he did.

    Reopening a worldwide discussion about, “who is Barry Soetoro”, is something those involved in the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people are not willingly to do.

    This has been obvious for a long time. Just think about it and connect the dots and the answer to the question, “Why does Congress not do anything?” will become clear. It’s because Congress already knows what the results of an investigation would show, and they want to protect their political job and…….avoid the possibility of going to prison. It’s very personal.

    The Republicans were happy to have Obama as president to set the precedent of not requiring a verifiable natural born citizen to run in the future (they had wanted to run Arnold Schwarzenegger, and they did illegally run Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Bobby Jindal).

    I think blackmail figures highly within the Washington DC establishment to keep people in line, and there is no dearth of surveillance: FBI, CIA, NSA. Remember also, the young man (who worked for the Passport office contractor servicing the Passport files) and was reportedly ready to talk to the FBI about the Passport files break-in, who was found shot dead while sitting in his car in front of his church in Wash DC – the killing unsolved to this day; and later on the contractor was elevated to the CIA?

    President Trump’s words ‘Swamp’ and ‘Sewer’ to describe the federal establishment doesn’t go far enough in my opinion. Utterly corrupt, evil, poisonous come to mind. How about cesspool?

      Great post, which illustrates a wonderful communist technique – “too big to prosecute”. This can be generalized all the way from tiny local cases of “medical marijuana” when there is no law on the books, to “ineligible President”. Using the media, it’s possible to wheedle around the edge of explicit law using all kinds of “card-based” dodges. So they DO IT. The trouble is, it ALLOWS IN the bad stuff they really want, which is WAY BIGGER.

      We MUST get rid of card-based law. FORCING preferences on companies that don’t have them by ASSUMING there is discrimination is as bad as ALLOWING discrimination when it is CLEAR by evidence that it exists. We have moved law from CHARACTER to COLOR. That was a VERY sneaky ploy.

      This is why the people who want to accuse us of THOUGHT CRIMES are moving to the idea of IMPLICIT BIAS. They want to now move from accusing organizations, to accusing individuals – but trust me – it’s ONE WAY.

      They want to go after “implicit bias”? WE get to go after “implicit communism”. Oh, I can have a FIELD DAY going after “unconscious commies”.

      NO – in a free society, we judge by ACTIONS, PROVEN in a court of law at the individual level, NOT statistics alleging THOUGHT made up by outcome-interested bureaucrats.

              The MSM uses the public airwaves. They must operate in the public interest to obtain an FCC license. Most, I believe, fail to operate in the public interest these days. If you agree, please challenge any new licenses or renewal of existing of licenses by posting a letter of objection on the FCC’s web site. For instance, CNN uses uplink satellite frequencies to distribute their anti-American propaganda around the world. Please go to the FCC web site and leave a letter of opposition to renewal of their licenses that states that CNN is not meeting their obligation to operate in the public interest. Similarly post a letter that objects to renewal of the ABC, CBS or NBC local station licenses. If enough people do this the FCC will not be able to ignore the issue. If even one MSM new license or license renewal is denied it will shake the industry up especially if a local TV station renewal is denied. Big bucks involved.

      Attorney Donald Warden, partner in Holmes and Warden law firm in CA, defendeded OPEC in a 1970’s action against them. Warden became fast friends with the the crown prince of Saudi Arabia and eventually converted to Islam and changed his name to Khalid Al-Mansour.

      A 1979 article by Vernon Jarrett – communist and father of communist Valerie Jarrett, strong-woman adviser of Obama’s presidency – in the St. Petersburg Independent was all about Khalid Al-Mansour. Jarrett noted that Al-Mansour said he’d proposed to OPEC to donate $20 million to start a college fund for blacks.

      Not noted in the article is the fact that, several years later, Al-Mansour contacted NYC councilman Percy Sutton and asked Sutton to write a letter of recommendation to his Harvard University friends for one Barack Hussein Obama.

      Did Arab oil money pay for Obama’s Harvard education? Is that why Obama refuses to release his Harvard records? All his other college records?

      Is that why The Muslim Manchurian President deeply bowed from the waist to the Arab “princes”, to thank them for buying his education and presidency?

      The man should be exposed, charged, tried, and publicly executed after being so sentenced in a court of law.

      Al-Mansour became a raving black racist who hated whites, advocated segregation, and even killing of whites. His lunatic raves are on youtube. Chilling to watch. If any white had made the same proclamations he’d have been tried and sentenced by a court of law, and the MSM.

      (this article is very accurate, even if it is a “wiki” doc)

      Scroll halfway down the scribd doc to see copy of orig article from St. Petersburg Independent:

      Excellent timeline connecting Don Warden/Al-Mansour, Obama, Percy Sutton, Vernon/Valerie Jarrett, more. Notice name of blog “”:


    • Agree 100% with every letter you typed. I followed the INELIGIBILITY of Barry every step of the way. At the very least he was a dual citizen. He was the ultimate Manchurian candidate. His administration was chocked full of Communists and Islamists. I have been to two Trevor Loudon presentations and will be attending another one. He was the one who did the deep dive into all the corrupt background. If you haven’t listened to the Tim Fife YouTube series on Barry, you need to. I truly believe at least 40% of Americans KNOW he was never eligible. When Ted Cruz ran, I had a friend who is highly intelligent but a Cruz devotee. She refused to acknowledge his ineligibility. She “unfriended” me on Facebook and withdrew from our Republican Women’s Club. What is it about truth and facts that some people just can not digest?

      At the time people said, “Obama must have been vetted by the FBI.” “The bureaucrats in Hawaii could not conspire to hide the truth without someone spilling the beans.” “The courts have adjudicated this; there’s nothing to see here.” Bill O’Reilly said lots of media organizations have looked into it and “it’s bogus.” They threw the country away for what? Political correctness?

The oct warrant seemingly would not allow ongoing surveillance UNLESS there remained an American named in the FISA WARRANT from an earlier effort. Papadopoulos was the only one left with “RUSSian” ties that could give the appearance of on going collusion. He was comingled with their argument on Russian email hacking.

Everything was compromised. Did you read Crowdstrike’s report? Even the VOIP telephone conversations were stolen, according to them. Why have we not heard THEM? All Crowdstrike had to do to prevent at least 75% of those emails at Wikileaks from being stolen is just disconnect the DNC network from the Internet. They didn’t do that, or anything else to end any hack until 36 days of SOMEONE looting the DNC network had all the damaging emails about hosing Old Man Sanders. The 10 worst, and all the 75% of the emails stolen were created while Crowdstrike was there.

      Russians got Trump elected when the US media gives away FIVE BILLION DOLLARS IN FREE AIR TIME TO PROMOTE HIM?

      Russians did the DNC hack? Did you ever wonder if CROWDSTRIKE helped them by just doing NOTHING for 36 days, or did they steal the emails themselves? They had the means and they had the opportunity. They are logical suspects.

    Comey was signing off on the FISA applications (using the dossier as the basis for doing so) and then met with and briefed Trump (and Obama) on the dossier contents several days before it went public. Comey did not advise Trump that the dossier originated with Clinton and the DNC when he had that meeting.

    Comey has been reported to have taken notes of every meeting and phone call he had with Trump. Where are Comey’s notes from the dossier briefing ?

    Also, when Comey briefed President Obama on the dossier, did he tell the President of the United States that the dossier originated with Clinton/DNC ? Regardless of whether the answer is “yes” or “no”, the implications are damning for Comey, or Obama, or both of them.

  8. IMO, a logical person would pick up on the too-many-coincidences. Why did Fusion hire Steele? Why did Fusion target Carter Page among Trump campaign people? Both Page and Steele were known to the FBI from previous years; Democrats are using 2013 FBI fruitless investigation of Page as cover now. A logical inference is that someone in the FBI directed Fusion towards Page and Steele. My hunch is that someone in the FBI was involved in the origination of the idea for a “dossier.” They were caught off guard by Trump winning the nomination or they’d have done a better job of covering themselves. Like the NeverTrumpers and the entire media, they thought somehow some way the GOP establishment would “stand up to Trump.”

    That they didn’t inform the FISA judge they were using information bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton is too much of a coincidence; that the FISA judge wasn’t more demanding is too much of a coincidence. Ben Stein calls the FISA judge “brain dead.”

    McCabe’s wife getting $500,000; McCabe not recusing until the very last minute. Mueller hiring Strozk and Page; Strozk being in charge of so much concerning Clinton. I was born at night but not last night. These are not innocent coincidences. What kind of investigative reporter shrugs that off?

    While I agree that the media is never going to admit that they have been reporting a pack of lies for a long time, I think that the reason they headed down that path is because the ppl who control the 6 corporations that own 90% of the US media wanted them to go down that path. They will do whatever it takes to get Trump out of office and put in someone they can control like Hillary. WHY? Because of 5G. They know if the government builds the platform instead of them, they ALL go out of business within a few years. Comcast cable (1 of the 6) will be useless, as well as all network programming. They stand to lose control and a combined total of over $1 trillion dollars. That is the incentive for what they are doing and everyone in the media knows it, but they are ALL in the same boat together, from the cameraman to the anchors to the CEOs. 5G is going to be the biggest change the country, even the world has ever seen. Who controls it is the question, we the people or mega-corporations? There was a very important reason the founding fathers made ONE exception to allow the US government to be in one particular business, the business of information delivery – the United States Postal Service. They fought the Revolutionary war to rid themselves of the control of a mega-corporation, England’s East India Trading Company (See Boston Tea Party) which taught them the dangers of monolithic corporations having control of their information ‘network’. We must fight tooth and nail to stop these people from having control over 5G, our freedom relies on it.

      One only needs to look at how the government regulated the telephone companies with regs. It was not until the telecommunications industry was deregulated and the phone companies were able to compete unregulated that we moved out of the 1920’s with phones and phone services like the wireless cell lhones and internet.

      It’s a bit of irony that you yoused the pony express as a shining example (USPS) of government delivery of information. The private sector, (UPS and FED EX.) have put the USPS to shame. To the point that the USPS should be abolished as the wasteful welfare

About 75% of the stolen emails were created while Crowdstrike was there. They didn’t start doing anything to contain the alleged hack until June 11, 2016. It took less than two days to fix everything. Ten of the stolen emails, all created while Crowdstrike looked on, were the most damaging about hosing Old Man Sanders.

    Just rifling through the Sunday talking heads this morning, and came across CBS. Margaret Brennan is anchoring now, in place of John Dickerson. After a bit of research, does anyone find her background a bit too coincidental given the musical chairs this week, a militarizing of the press?

    “Brennan was born on March 26,1980 at Stamford, Connecticut to Edward and Jane Brennan. She graduated with honors from the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Greenwich, Connecticut in 1998. At the University of Virginia, she graduated with highest distinction in 2002 with a B.A. in Foreign Affairs and Middle East Studies with a minor in Arabic language. She was named an Emmerich-Wright scholar for her thesis and also studied abroad at Yarmouk University in Irbid, Jordan, on a Fulbright-Hays Grant. In 2015, she received an honorary doctor of letters degree from Niagara University for her work in international affairs.

    Margaret Brennan married Yado Yakub in 2015.[4][5][6]

    She was also among the first reporters to interview Hillary Clinton about the fatal attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya.”

    Ali Iyad Yakub is Sryian. Yado is his nickname. A Marine JAG and has a history with Congress – working for Joe Biden – as well as Afghanistan troop training.

    He also may be the author of a paper,

    “The Islamic Roots Of Democracy” by Ali Iyad Yakub

    From Wikileaks:
    Yakub – The Nation of Islam theology states that Yakub is the biblical Jacob. Sunni and Shia Muslims that are not affiliated with the Nation of Islam reject this belief. The story has caused disputes within the NOI during its history. Under its current leader Louis Farrakhan, the NOI continues to assert that the story of Yakub is true, stating that modern science is consistent with it.

    I have researched his parents, and a My Life post on his mother, Rolana Yakub, states moslem as her religion.

    Can someone please explain why Papadopoulos is NOT the real target of the FISA applications of July16 and the subsequent ones up til the inauguarayin and the. Perhaps past it when he by then had been charged by Mueller?
    He was there for the campaign and transition. He had been disclosed through foreign intelligence or foreign government to our FBI

    I clearly see the fbi abuse and clearly the bias and motive to help Hillary, however it seems like Papadopoulos gives them cover to seek a title oneFisa warrant. Albeit flimsy.


    • simicharmed says:

      He is not a target for the same reason you are not a target. 1) He was a low level campaign Volunteer (likely a planted one by DOJ and/or their co-conspirators), 2) He was never “interviewed” by the FBI until 7 months after July 16th, 2017, 3) Title 1 FISA is the worst of the worst – for people determined to be actual foreign spies. Add up 1 through 3 (consider Papadopoulos is a free person still), and you should easily conclude that what you are curious about, makes absolutely zero sense.


      • simicharmed says:

        EDIT to my post – 2017 means he was not interviewed until 2017 (6 months after your “July16” claim)

        • And why would a conversation in a bar – as told to them several months later – be a reason to start investigating the out-of-power party’s presidential candidate anyway? You have to be awful trusting to think thats OK.


          • Jim Edwards says:

            The only reason is the original July 16 application is at the ame time the Australian govt contacted the fbi regarding his boasts about Hillary emails in the Russian possession in may 2016. Meaning the Australian govt is being used as proof.


      • Jim Edwards says:

        I’m not making the assertion. I’m positing that in order to get a fisa title 1 it must be a us resident who was still with the campaign .
        I’m hoping YOU ARE CORRECT. BELIEVE ME

    From the title: ‘This is Madness – The Media are Just as Complicit…’

    Indeed they are, for they are The Propagandists, wholly owned by our domestic enemies. The ‘Media’ are just as much domestic enemies of this nation — and its PEOPLE — as is the Democrat Party, the Deep State/Swamp, globalists, academia from top to bottom, the ‘entertainment’ industry … the list goes on.

    Make no mistake. They want this nation as founded, along with our individual rights, dead as a doornail. The crimes being uncovered will pale once the onion is peeled down to the center layers, past and including the Zero layers. These criminals have committed the ultimate in crimes against We the People, and for those to be found guilty by juries of their peers (us) in US courts of laws, they deserve the ultimate in punishment, which is not prison time. For judges that go along with the swamp and rule in opposition to the clear words of the Constitution, count them as enemies a well.

    Here’s a clip of Marie Harf on Fox back in July 2017 calling Molly Hemmingway a conspiracy theorist and a liar while stating unequivocally that the dossier was NOT used to get a FISA warrant. In fact, Harf assured all of us that she “was there” and that they (the Obama people) all thought the dossier was a “funny, salicious” document and that no one took it seriously, and that they certainly didn’t use it to get a FISA warrant. So, to this I have two questions: 1) When does FOX decide to can this woman for lying and deceiving its viewers for many months? 2) Will Nunes et al. now haul Ms. Harf before their committee and ask her to elaborate as to precisely who in the Obama administration thought the dossier was a joke, and if they all thought it was a joke, why did they use it to get a FISA warrant?

      Good questions. When do you think we might get some good answers?


    • spren says:

      I cannot stand Marie Harf and have never understood why Fox would hire someone like her. As spokeswoman for Obama’s State Department, her lips were never moving except when she was lying and dissembling. When she appears on Outnumbered, I immediately change the channel. The other co-hosts seem to recoil in disgust whenever her time to speak comes. That is why I now mute or change the channel. I’ve gotten to the point where I pretty much do the same anytime a Democrat is being interviewed, because I know it will be all lies or abject ignorance. What a terrible bunch of wastes these people are.

    Today I officially join Sundance in his Cold Anger Dance. FUBAR has been accomplished by the lying mainstream media. Everything on the Sunday shows this morning is corrupted. And they make it very believable unless you have followed along in the Treehouse and been made aware of the documented truth as posted by Sundance, right here. The DOJ, FBI, SWAMP, and media lies have gotten out ahead of truth in the corrupt Deep State and it is FUBAR.

    Until the fake communist propaganda, America hating media is prosecuted for fraud and sedition, nothing will change. There has to be a way to hold them accountable. If they could be financially bankrupted, it would help.

    Until then, America will continue to slip further into the Banana Republic sphere.

      Also, the general public will continue to believe the fake media’s lies until they see some one being prosecuted for crimes against the Republic. People generally believe that unless someone is charged w/criminal acts or are sued into oblivion, that they must be legitimate: otherwise they would be suffering some negative consequences.

    Why does Michael Isikoff wind up in the middle of yet another attempt to take down a President? He supposedly would’ve broken the Lewinsky story had not his Newsweek employers dragged their feet until Drudge scooped him. He also played a role protecting Obmama in the birth certificate fiasco: Now his reporting formed the partial corroboration of a FISA warrant ultimately used against Trump. And he has a March book release date with co-author David Korn entitled “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump”. He seems to be the Forrest Gump of Presidential reporting.

      Earlier post, but Isikoff and Corn’s book might be part of the story,

      Did Isikoff get the door opened for him regarding the book deal by
      Glenn Simpson? Was the deal brokered right after Isikoff’s Yahoo
      news story appeared so that they could bamboozle the judge into
      the FISA warrant? Did the gruesome twosome get serious $$$$ in
      advance for said book? Follow the money. Follow the timeline.

    I am looking at the Carter Page v Yahoo defamation complaint and point # 32 alleges Page started receiving text inquiries about the dossier related allegations on 7/26/16 from a reporter at the WSJ. The first of many inquiries from reporters over the next 60 days.
