      He mentions that…”the press isn’t talking about” This.

      That’s an understatement.

      The LeftStreamMedia has also been ‘weaponized’.
      They have formed a big blue Wall to the keep the truth from the American people…and they hide behind that Wall, lobbing their attacks on anyone who speaks the truth.

            IMO, it is clear to me the MSM organizations script readers as well as part of FOX are all complicit in promoting riminal action, advancing a overthrow of the Government of the USA and removing a legally elected President.

            Class action lawsuit, the people against all MSM organizations(to many to list) for these crimes removing their licenses, heavy penalties with possible prison terms for some owners including print organizations. These are acts of treasons when they became corruptly envolved transmitting agenda talking points as news. The big lie!

            Surely many very smart Americans can make the case using msm’s own reporting of lies as a news item by un-named sources! Much evidence proving what they did plus the hidden things blowing up in their laps.

        You might be watching the acceleration of the mainstream media’s death spiral in all of this. Keep note of how many citizens go to the internet seeking other sources of information and watch who comes out on top…such as potentially this site we seem to spend time visiting.

        The tables will turn, old players are going to be replaced, many leaving in disgrace as is proper. There will be new heroic journalists coming to the fore.

          My analogy – Walmart. The good is affordable prices for people with shrinking paychecks. The bad is Made In China. I think regardless of the ratio of good to bad, people will always flock to the place with the cheap prices. And so my analogy – the masses will flock to the station that’s most readily available and least boring. It’s going to be a very big challenge.

        Spot on.

        I also just noticed something. Julie Banderas was interviewing someone in the last half hour and questioned about the two terminated WH staff members’ background checks. She confirmed that there was old information easily attainable about their past, so why did the FBI not find it within a year’s time?

        So, the dossier, the ‘Russia’ investigation and many other events seem to be preplanned and interrelated in this unraveling minefield. Are these the same animals of prey Hunter Trump speaks of?

                I regret to say that I got too excited when I produced Parts 4 and 5 to realize something very critical in analyzing Crowdstrike’s work at the DNC in May 2016. Crowdstrike told the DNC to not change anything about how they did their business as they supposedly had proprietary software that could track stolen documents back to the hackers’ network by implanting the document with some kind of tracker code. Of course, only the National Security Agency can track “documents” to their destinations as documents do not move through the Internet intact, but are broken into packets with each packet taking a different route to the destination. This negates Crowdstrike’s claim that they can do this tracking, therefore, the DNC agreed to Crowdstrike not containing the hack starting the first day, thus causing catastrophic loss to the DNC as Crowdstrike did not trace any packets to their destination. Other means were used to infer that Russians did the hack.

                Actually, the nature of what was stolen–emails and attachments–made it IMPERATIVE that the hack be stopped IMMEDIATELY. It is in the nature of emails and attached documents and images that they do not have to be EXFILTRATED to be stolen. All the hacker needs to do is either COPY AND PASTE the emails and attachments, or use a screencapture application to copy them. This can be done almost instantaneously. Remember, Crowdstrike told Ellen Nakashima that the “Russian hackers” “read” the emails and “monitored” them. If you can read and monitor, you can copy and paste, or you can screencapture the documents.

                This finding BURIES THEM.

                Here is the latest. ON HA Goodman’s YouTube channel, I discovered that Liar Papadopoulos claimed that “the professor” Mifsud, a pal of the Liar’s, informed him in APRIL 2016 that the Russians already had those thousands of DNC emails. This is how I replied in the comments section:

                HA–When did liar Papadopoulos speak to the Professor about the DNC emails? If it is prior to May 5, 2016, it is another lie. 75% of the stolen DNC emails were created from May 5, 2016 until May 25, 2016.

                I just checked the NY DAILY NEWS:

                “The shadowy professor, Joseph Mifsud, first made headlines when his name was listed in court records unsealed by special counsel Robert Mueller last fall. According to the records, Mifsud told ex-Trump adviser George Papadopoulos in April 2016 that the Russian government had obtained “dirt” on Hillary Clinton and stolen thousands of emails from Democratic National Committee servers.”

                The fact that Papadopoulos claims that Mifsud told him the “thousands of emails” from the DNC were in the possession of the Russians in APRIL 2016 indicates the story was false according to the known timeline of the email theft in which 75% of those 1000s of emails that were stolen were created between MAY 5, 2016 (the date Crowdstrike started its engagement with the DNC) and MAY 25, 2016. Therefore, the Russians could not have had “thousands of emails” from the DNC in………………………..APRIL!!!!!

                WHY CAN’T THESE PEOPLE GET THEIR TIMELINE STRAIGHT? IT’S THEIR DAMN STORY!! THE INCOMPETENCE, THE INCOMPETENCE, IT’S STAGGERING!

            That is a good alternative if you have to have the cable for some other reason. We never used it except for news, so dropping and switching to OAN made sense.

            The trouble with cable is it funds the madness, and at a pretty stiff rate. They need that $30 min per month for the TV part – it pays Lena Dunham. I’m saving a boatload by dropping back to cheap pure internet and KlowdTV for OAN – very cheap combination.

        There has been no mention of that in tweets, conservative reporting, etc. because we didn’t have the skinny on how the FISC (c is for court) operates.

        My statement re Review Court are not intended to negate your comment wheatietoo that the MSM has been weaponized. Totally agree that they are not covering any of this.

Take a few minutes to let your mind roam over all the players.

      My guess is John Brennan of the CIA, if for no other reason than he is the most dastardly of all of Obama-Mao’s appointments (Val Jar does not count). Mark down the person and the date (Feb 10, 2018) of your choice.

        Brennan AND Robert Hannigan, the chief of the GCHQ (British spy agency with access to NSA data.)
        Apr. 13, 2017
        “[…]Brennan reportedly established a counterintelligence task force, which included the FBI and the National Security Agency. That summer, Robert Hannigan, then the chief of the GCHQ, passed Brennan more material related to conversations Trump associates had with suspected or known Russian agents,[…]”http://www.businessinsider.com/british-spy-agency-trump-russia-ties-2017-4

        “[…]Trump fired Comey earlier this month, just over nine months into the FBI’s probe of Russia’s hacking and disinformation campaigns that targeted Democrats during the election. That probe began in earnest when Robert Hannigan, then the chief of Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters, passed Brennan material related to conversations Trump associates had with suspected or known Russian agents in late 2015 and early 2016,….

        Brennan was so concerned about the intercepted communications that he established a counterintelligence task force, which included the FBI and the National Security Agency. (Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified earlier this month that those communications had been picked up and handed over to US agencies, but he could not elaborate due to the “sensitive” nature of the intelligence.)[…]”http://www.businessinsider.com/john-brennan-russia-trump-collusion-testimony-2017-5

        Hannigan abruptly resigned on Jan. 23, 2017. This was three days after Trump’s inauguration and shortly after the first allegations that former MI6 agent Christopher Steele was involved thanks to the Buzzfeed article on January 10, 2017.

      “Of the 35,529 warrant requests between 1978 and 2013, only 12 were denied. And that’s very peculiar, as a starting point. But, it’s even more peculiar when you think that one of the denials that occurred was in June of 2016, and it was for a surveillance of this individual (Carter Page) that was tied to the Trump campaign.

      Oddly, in Oct of 2016, (this denial was reversed) and the probable cause for surveillance was granted. How did that happen??

      It happened because there is a FISA review court, and there are only 3 members of that court. They were all appointed by Bill Clinton, and so one has to surmise that this (original Oct. 13th) denial went to them and (therefore) individuals who were appointed by the husband of the Presidential candidate who provided the opposition research to the probable cause warrant allowed this surveillance to go forward.”

    Proof of malfeasance by multiple officers of the FBI/DOJ pretty much requires everything to come out for the purpose of clearing the air. A full airing may severely embarrass the DOJ and FBI as institutions; however, those same institutions failed in their obligation to maintain their integrity by allowing corruption into the executive offices. Hiding such embarrassment only hurts their credibility much more. Maybe the IG will tidy the place up.

    Trust has to be earned, and in these departments are severely mistrusted–by the public and by senior members of the executive and legislative branches. Don’t forget FISC Judge Collyer–even she has some real heartburn. Maybe those career FBI and DOJ who bristle at having their institutions hammered for this can ponder what they could have done to prevent this in the first place and ensure it never happens again.

    Good summary here:

    In sum: To obtain a warrant to spy on a Trump campaign associate, the FBI relied heavily on a dossier that was never substantiated, put together by a former spy “desperate” to stop Trump. That dossier was paid for by powerful Democrats on Trump’s rival campaign, who also paid for opposition research the FBI received from a powerful couple inside President Obama’s DOJ. Separately, two Clinton allies worked together to funnel a second unsubstantiated dossier to the FBI through the State Department.

      There would never be only one copy of stolen NSA hacking tools, once stolen. And we know some were. No way to verify that ‘all’ Russian copies were returned. So clearly CIA was engaged in trying to find Trump ‘dossier’ dirt, and failed. Means there exists, perhaps until now unbeknowst to Pompeo, Deep State antiTrump connections between FBI counterintelligence and CIA.

    Our President is an example of Divine Intervention! God our Father listened to our prayers and gave us one last chance to take back our country from the forces of evil.

    Was the three hop rule applicable to the surveillance of Carter Page- so they could put under surveillance everyone who had contact with him and everyone those people had contact with and everyone those people had contact with. That would encompass Trump and everyone in his family and on his campaign. And they could go back five years on the surveillance. I wonder if this is how you ended up with a thousand Americans connected to Trump unmasked in the Obama intelligence reports. That was the number that lawyer in Buffalo who was unmasked mentioned. Anyway, if the three hop rule was in effect, seems very misleading to talk about a warrant for Carter Page, when it would entail looking at the emails, phone calls, etc of a lot of other people.

      FTA: The power of the federal government is enormous, can smash a private citizen and could crush most political campaigns. Amazingly, Trump and the American preference for him survived. That is remarkable and sobering.

      President Trump45’s survival is a testament to the man he is, and to the American’s who answered his offer of, I will be your champion. What a champion we chose! Great men like President Trump45 are so rare.

    Folks, the CIA agents went to the Russian Embassy (!!!!!) to view a 15 seconds video of “Trump.”
    The CIA spies secretly met a shady Russian spy in the Russian Embassy (obviously with the Russian officials organizing the meeting) in order to pay for kompromat on the US President.

    Just to make it crystal clear.
    STAGE ONE
    Title III FISA 702 is basically spying on Americans; the actual “spying” part is 702. (They vacuum up your phone calls emails etc)
    Item 17 is “About Queries“, which allows queries or searches of content of email and phone conversations based on any subject matter put into the search field such as YOUR NAME. Outsiders like Robert Hannigan — the chief of Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters, Fusion GPS and maybe Crowdstrike were allowed to use/abuse this system and given access to raw FISA data using 702 About Queries.

    THAT WAS STAGE ONE and it got them NOTHING! Remember that Trump, while campaigning commented he never used email for sensitive info because it was not secure. He used private courier. So they then went with —

    STAGE TWO
    Very intrusive surveillance of President Trump and his team and not just reading emails and listening to phone conversations.

    TITLE I — ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE WITHIN THE UNITED STATES FOR FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE PURPOSES

    PUBLIC LAW 95-511
    (f) “Electronic surveillance” means—-

    (4) the installation or use of an electronic, mechanical,or other surveillance device in the United States for monitoring to acquire information other than from a wire or radio communication, under circumstances in which a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy and a warrant would be required for law enforcement purposes….

    This is why President-elect Trump left Trump Tower within 24 hours of the visit from Admiral Rogers. The Tower was LITERALLY BUGGED!
    ….

    Carter Page was an undercover FBI employee and in no way a spy of a foreign country.
    Page acknowledges that he was outed by BuzzFeed as “Male-1” in a court filing for the Buryakov case:
    Felony #1: Illegal leaking of my identity as “Male-1” [FBI Under-Cover Employee-1] in U.S.A v. Evgeny Buryakov, Igor Sporyshev, and Victor Podobnyy – On April 3, 2017, reporters at ABC News and BuzzFeed News requested to meet in order to inform me that U.S. government operatives had unlawfully disclosed my identity as Male-1 in this 2015 case. This particular incident follows an increasing series of similar revelations about other politically-motivated unmaskings in 2016….”

    Glenn Simpson testified that the FBI had an informant in the Trump admin…

    Think about it: Page was an under-cover FBI EMPLOYEE in 2013 when he gave binders containing “covertly placed recording devices” to the Russian, Buryakov.
    This was all discussed in the thread: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/02/05/in-march-2016-carter-page-was-an-fbi-employee-in-october-2016-fbi-told-fisa-court-hes-a-spy/

    Don’t lose sight of the fact that there is, indeed, a vast silent majority here in this nation. This is real. I have friends and family who do not have the time to keep up with current events, who work hard many hours a week to care for their families, to pay their bills and to make ends meet. They are not stupid, or uninformed. They know the difference between honesty and dishonesty, between right and wrong. When they walk through public places like airports and motels and are forced to watch the propaganda media like CNN, they, like me, cringe in disgust and disdain and move on shaking their head. The key will be to rally these people together like Donald Trump did by talking to them directly through public rallies and on social networks. No matter what you hear and see or read about in the fake news, do not despair and know this. We are strong, we are motivated, we are right. We are… The American People and we will win.

    Thoughts on special prosecutors.

    FISA court system. This is more behind the scenes but critical. It may take both a prosecutor and a senior judge to resolve this. This needs to go back 5 years or so, case by case, to look for problems. I fear this going to be a huge mess that documents actions far beyond anything allowed by the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. There needs to be both an unclassified and classified report. There will need to be legislative action to resolves this matter, and the guilty need to be held accountable. Somebody in this should have stood up and said the surveillance of a presidential candidate was wrong, and in violation of the Constitution that they all were sworn to uphold. The way to prevent the next time is for the guilty to spend some time behind bars. Otherwise promises that it will never happen again are just empty words.

    FBI/DOJ: This will deal with very evident problems within those organizations. Bottom to top, including Obama. This has been the most visible, but the other investigations are no less important. The handling of General Flynn becomes the lowest level of punishment to be awarded. Agreements for witnesses to avoid prosecution need to be few and far between. Most of the criminal charges are likely to come from this review.

    Clinton Investigation: This needs to include Uranium One, the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton election process, and related topics. The actual email server may not be important, since Mr. Comey has closed that investigation (even if that action seems very questionable). I might offer to look at the travel budgets first. If Clinton Foundation money was used for travel for Clinton people for election processes, that would seem like a problem. If Clinton election money was used for paying Christopher Steele, that would seem like a problem. If there was any “pay to play”, that needs to be addressed as well.

    Of note, there is significant overlap in the three investigations, and some of those will be the most interesting to review.

    Finally, the President should take the opportunity to challenge the Congress on their own “collusion with the Russians”. They should be asked to report all such interactions, and recuse themselves if deemed appropriate. The AG was required to recuse himself for shaking hands with one Russian senior person, as I understand it. Congress should have no lower expectation for their members.

    The questioning by Republican Elise Stefanik, is a very good line of questioning, especially the first 4 minutes, where she has Saint Comey on the ropes about “When were the White House and Congress briefed about important investigations”, such as the Russian hacking claim. Comey claims basically he would brief the WH only quarterly, or if a matter of importance arose.

    I think that answer is bullsxxxx.

    Comey replies that that decision was made by the Director of Intelligence—presumably the Director of Natl. Intelligence, which was, during the Obama years, (2010-Dec 2017), that devil, aka Nosferatu (dead look-alike), James Clapper. Former R. Sen. Daniel Costs, an outstanding and honorable patriot, took over Mar. 16, 2017, but during that interregnum when Mike Dempsey was acting Director, clearly Comey wasn’t forwarding I go to Trump briefing the Pres on Comey’s Trump Campaign espionage caper.

    All this brings us back to: Why in the world didn’t Trump fire Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, and all the FBI and DOJ assistant directors (like Sally Yates, thst boob), FBI investigation chiefs (like Peter Strzok), assistant DOJ attorneys — decapitate all the leadership— on Jan. 21st, the day after the Inauguration?
