Intelligence PR Firm Gets Caught in Leak Trap – WaPo Runs Story of McMaster Firing…

The leaks are real; the news is fake. That’s the underlying dynamic behind ‘Black Hat Hunting’.

The PR Firm for the corrupt U.S. intelligence apparatus known as The Washington Post, runs a story about H.R. McMaster being fired tonight.

The Washington Post quotes “five people with knowledge of the plans”.

Except there’s a problem, there are no plans.

No plans except to entrap staff and intelligence community leakers; likely those five ‘leakers’ are in/around the National Security Council, and they just got caught.

WaPo – President Trump has decided to remove H.R. McMaster as his national security adviser and is actively discussing potential replacements, according to five people with knowledge of the plans, preparing to deliver yet another jolt to the senior ranks of his administration.

Trump is now comfortable with ousting McMaster, with whom he never personally gelled, but is willing to take time executing the move because he wants to ensure both that the three-star Army general is not humiliated and that there is a strong successor lined up, these people said.  (read more)

    New Book Fills In Gaps Of Trump’s Moscow Trip — And It’s Not Good For The Dossier

    • stringplayer55 says:

      Note, though, that this book is by Michael Isikioff and David Corn, two of the worst purveyors of misinformation in American journalism. You can be sure these authors will do their best to slime Trump. Isikoff was on Fox last night where he claimed the basic tenets of the Steele dossier are correct. A carefully chosen word or two here and there questioning something like the “golden shower” episode is a smokescreen that will lead many to believe that these hacks are are serious journalists who are trying to divide the wheat from the chaff.

      But their main purpose is still to destroy the Trump Presidency. And how best to do that? By appearing “reasonable” and criticizing the worst of the misrepresentations by Steele, they set themselves up as having the ability to divine between truth and fiction when, in fact, most of what they purvey is going to be fiction. They only divine between the most egregious fictions and the lesser egregious fictions.


      • Ned Zeppelin Ii says:

        As signs of desperation mount, and the cracks begin to show, Isikoff has been recruited again to recycle the Steele dossier and phony Russian collusion yarns. His story in Yahoo News was cited in the FISA court proceeding as evidence corroborating the Steele Dossier, when he in fact was part of the FusionGPS scheme to promote the phoney dossier. – a circular and utterly attempt to buttress its veracity. On Fox to restate the lies so that they may somehow be transformed into truth by repeated tellings. A bit part player and about as far from an “investigative journalist” as you can get,

    I had some interesting conversations with my Granddaughter who after only 2 years in College has been completely brainwashed. One of her Professors told her how dangerous it was to call the News media fake because it would hurt the Country. I had to break out laughing. I told her the most dangerous thing was for the media to not report the news that did not fit into their criteria and to make a big deal out of their biased news reporting. I then asked her about Uranium one, the FBI scandal, the Steele Dossier, the improving economy etc. She said never heard of them. My response was “I rest my case”. This is a girl raised in a super Conservative family.

So obviously there’s a lot of confusion out there – people just don’t understand.’

        I nearly drove off the road I was so angry. It never seemed to have occurred to her that maybe her constituents DID understand and they wanted her to know that they would rather have a certain downturn that We could dig out from than gamble on something that might work and was guaranteed to add huge amounts of debt.

      As a former adjunct professor of flute/music at a small liberal arts college (liberal), after leaving there in 2013, AND continuing to teach privately, IMO, almost all of our higher ed institutions are totally corrupt, filled with leftists pushing their agenda. Even if this were not true, NOT everyone needs to go to college!

      I have also changed my opinion about homeschooling, and think it is almost always a better option than our education system, private or public. There is definitely a huge advantage to being in a homeschooling network in a city as opposed to doing so in a small town, however, but still better option.

      Trade schools should be emphasized more, as one can make an excellent living as a tradesman: electrician, plumber, builder, etc., and should be no shame in doing so. Of course, colleges are more interested in making money than anything, so really push the mantra that everyone ‘deserves’ a college education—NOT true.

      I do have a MM degree, and have taught for more years than I care to say………I do not like the changes I have seen either, 98% of them, or maybe all. Not only in education itself, but the disrespect shown, primarily to teachers/students with whom one disagrees, and also the abject deplorable behavior, physical and verbal, by these brainwashed students.

      There are only a handful of colleges/universities that I would consider today, and with granddaughters becoming college age soon, will not be easy. Also see NO harm in taking a ‘leap’ year or two, working, and growing up. Same with joining the military. Good way to mature, maybe, and have your college paid for afterwards. However, our military is not what it once was either.

      Vent/rant over.

        These are EXACTLY my sentiments. The liberal arts college curriculum does not serve a large number of students with anything like real job skills. The fact that the liberal arts college curriculum is pushed for everyone even though a huge number of college grads do not come away with improved career prospects betrays the notion that the motive for pushing this form of education is to indoctrinate the coming generation into the belief systems of the “educators”.

        Given that we hear every day of educators – and educational institutions as a whole – who are rewarded for antagonism to any thought that runs counter to officially sanctioned narratives indicates that the “liberal arts” education is really just “liberal agenda” education. A true liberal arts education would expound on the classics of Western tradition that gave rise to this nation of immigrants as the birthplace of freedom – both freedom of inquiry and freedom to innovate and profit from such innovations. The freedom of inquiry is exactly the reason these educational institutions exist in the first place. But these days, the liberal agenda education dismisses study of these freedoms and places the tyranny of the collective above the rights of the individual.

        Education has been replaced with indoctrination. A lot of money is spent to indoctrinate the next generation, and few skills are attained along the way. At the same time, real, marketable skills (as required for trades) are dismissed as unworthy objectives. We lose skilled tradesmen (which is NOT a sexist term) and society suffers both through our inability to produce goods and services as well as in our inability to engage in productive dialogue. Gone are the days of the Tip O’Neil’s and Henry “Scoop” Jackson’s who believed that we were better off if we found ways to compromise. At this point, we have a failing (if not already failed) political system that is part and parcel of our failing educational system.

        The “trade school” or training route is the best way to go now days…for the future.
        FWIW: I have a rough business outline for training new commercial pilots…very well paying, clean, honest work! Requires excellent eye sight and heart and NO drug history or other law issues. Total numbers needed in the USA by 2030 will be 22K + 117K … worldwide, the numbers jump to 640,000 total…overseas from the USA. ALL pilots speak ENGLISH for air traffic control… Takes about 2 to 3 years and about $50k to $75k or so, plus cost of living. Once licensed as a CFI you start earning some offsetting income and gaining your required “hours” of time. The up front investment is about $500k to $1 mil to set up the school – becomes self-sustaining around 5th year… interest??? contact: kd7dcr at netscape dot com.

      Sadly, being from a Conservative family alone isn’t enough to inoculate your kids from these socialist vipers. You need to TALK with them constantly, starting at a very young age, to assure that your world view is very much a part of their world view. I was constantly sharing moral lessons with at dinner, in the car, etc. Most of the time they didn’t even realize what I was up to.

      Thankfully, both are graduating college in May, and both have their heads screwed on straight. It CAN be done!

      But the common notion that you don’t talk to children about politics ( the old “let kids just be kids” saw) is hopelessly bad advice for our current times.

    It is frustrating, sad, and very scary to see people in the federal government commit

    A two-tiered system of justice exists in America, the one place in the world

    If this is allowed to continue, it will contribute to the
    growing weakness that people feel about our country.
    With so many that apparently have committed crimes

    they all deserve to go to prison.
    Because of his seeming lack of will to do his job,
    Jeff Sessions is either the smartest person on the planet
