Tucker Carlson, Byron York and Jonathan Turley Discuss Big Ugly “Insurance Policy” Details…

Tonight on Tucker Carlson, Byron York and Jonathan Turley discuss the latest revelations amid the ongoing 2016 election spying and surveillance scandal.

In 2013 DNI James Clapper was forced to apologize for lying to congress about spying and surveillance on the American people.  In 2014 CIA Director John Brennan was forced to apologize for spying on the Senate and conducting surveillance of congress.  Suffice to say the Obama administration intelligence apparatus has no credibility today when they claim not to have conducted political surveillance on Donald Trump.

.

The Russia investigation continues to expose deep and terrifying corruption in Washington, and not in the ways the people who launched it expected. The New York Times and Washington Post reported that the Obama administration employed a spy who posed as an adviser to the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, a longtime CIA asset who fed information back to federal intel agencies. The Obama people lied about this.

    Paraphrasing Bryon York on this interview: Lynch was briefed by Comey in March 2016 that Trump had named his foreign policy advisors to the NYT. Trump did this because he was criticized for not being serious in his election bid. This briefing gave Lynch the names of Page, Papapdopulous…and then those individuals were approached by Halper. I have not seen CTH add this detail in our timeline. It goes to who knew what and when and the origins of contacts and which areas of the administration were handling them. Did we have this before York said it?

      Brennan then goes to Russia in March of 16, and Misfud immediately approaches Boy George to plant the seed about the emails which Downer will later forward back to Justice. Hard to say if we’ll ever get to the truth on any of this, but it’s all dirty.

        Detail on Alexander Downer: he’s a former Minister of Finance for Australia who shoveled millions of AU dollars at the Clinton Crime Syndicate.

        “The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable efforts, documents show.

        “Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation “fight AIDS” [WHICH THEY NEVER DID, BTW] is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website.”

          The irony about the Clintons and the aids issue is that Bill Clinton while govenor of Akansas was somewhat implicated of assisting in spreading the epidemic. Clintons buddy had the contract of collecting and selling the blood that was taken from inmates at the Arkansas prisoners. When our government realised this blood was tainted they stopped the process in the U.S. However it continued in Arkansas and sold to blood banks world wide.
          The tainted blood was then given to hemophiliacs and contracted AIDS and died. Some are still living today and there is an inquiry currently being conducted in England. I doubt anything especially connecting Clinton will ever come of it. Many People , including an Arkansas doctor , as well as others who uncovered it have been subjected tomextreme harassment both mental and physical. Many of the documents, papers and files have been destroyed (common Clinton practice) . It has been speculated by Linda Tripp and others that The Vince Foster incident may have been related to this crime as well. Tripp was his assistant and testified that on the day of his death she received a call that implied something about a Tainted blood.
          So now Crooked Bill collects millions of dollars under the pretext of helping those with AIDS yet how many of them did he play an indirect hand in infecting ?

      York said — Trump mentioned his foreign policy picks on March 21, 2016 at meeting with WaPO. Subsequently, Comey and McCabe briefed Lynch on Page and Papadopoulos as Trump picks for foreign policy advisors….. then Lynch brought up Page and Papadopoulos at the National Security Council Principals Committee – Sec of Def, Sec of Treas, Sec of State, CIA, etc. Which resulted in conversation at that meeting. These different folks should be identified in the timeline as being involved in late March Early April 2016 with respect to Carter Page and George Papadopoulos

        Remember. The guilty plea by Buryakov occurred on March 11th. Both Lynch and Comey would have known of Page’s participation as an undercover employee of the FBI at that time. It is beyond belief that they would not have included what the already knew about Page, i.e., that he was not a foreign agent, in their discussions of him after he was announced as an adviser on March 11th. They probably had to give him permission to become an adviser since Buryakov’s adjudication of guilt likely had not become final and they would have wanted Page to maintain his credibility as a witness in the event the Buryakov plea went south, That they then turned Page into a foreign agent just a few months later in order to obtain FISA authorization to conduct surveillanse on the Trump campaign is the evidence that will hang them. They can weasel word the failure to disclose the source of the dossier as Clinton oppo research, but they can’t explain how that categorically misrepresented the foreign agent status of Page to the FISA court, particularly, when the had to be a filing, either with the FISA court or with the district court for the Southern District of New York to get authority to plant the listening devices in Page’s notebooks. John Carlin probably had to quit to avoid signing the application because he had already signed a previous filing in the Buryakov case to the effect that Page was not a foreign agent of Russia..

And quite provable. I think I saw a post by SD (Twitter feed?) suggesting that Carlin’s name will be coming up soon and heavy. Perhaps he quit after advising Yates that Page was no foreign agent, saw that she went ahead with the Fisa approval and Carlin wasn’t going to stick around for the eventual denouement.

        By March 21, 2016, when he named his foreign policy picks, Trump was leading the delegate count 699 to 426 for Cruz; Cruz had already won the 100 delegates from Texas, Trump had just won Florida, North Carolina and Illinois, he was on a roll. Cruz would only win another 100 or so delegates, Trump would win over 800 more. But by late March, the writing was on the wall; Trump was all but a shoe-in to be the nominee. It makes sense that they would start their op at this time.

            I agree.

            For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, it seems like the whole Mueller probe is a way for the KGB-DNC-FBI to try to dump ITS Soviet sins on Trump, and EVACUATE (remember that word for a gal named Anna Bogacheva) Russian co-conspirators OUT of the United States.

            The weird fact is that the Awan brothers, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Putin’s diplomats, various Russian spy-girls, the Parkland killer, David Hogg, Eric Holder, James Runcie, various living and dead FBI people, a dead Clinton witness, and Barack Obama are all tied to a layer-cake story centered on a small area near Parkland, with two of the girl spies living very close to (one of them DOWN THE STREET from) the Parkland shooter.

            It’s complicated. Here is what you need to know, to understand the complexity of the conundrum, which seems to say that the Dems, the Muzz, and STILL-SOVIET RUSSIA are all working together in Florida. And they want to BAN OUR GUNS and TAKE OUR URANIUM.

                  Agreed. THIS whole thing IS a conspiracy. A conspiracy to remove a sitting President. Over the years, various alphabet soup agencies have created or redefined the word conspiracy to mean kookiness. They’ve devalued the word on purpose. It began with the Warren Commission and JFK’s death.

                  Exactly! Control what people are allowed to call “conspiratorial”, and you CONTROL WHAT THEY CAN THINK.

                  I believe part of the reason those specific words were denigrated is to hide the ACTUAL SCIENCE of “conspiracy theory”. I really need to do a post on it soon. The principle of the cover-up (devaluing the word) is to do the OPPOSITE of the fundamental principle of conspiracy theory, which is to treat ALL INFORMATION (most importantly, including independent intelligence) as conspiratorial – whether it conspires openly or not, and then predict how it will behave, discovering whatever conjectures, theorems, and principles are possible. By demonizing the fundamental principle, they made sure “normies” and behind-the-curve schmoes wouldn’t catch on. People can’t see how useful a framework it is for viewing the world, if they don’t employ it routinely in their lives.

                  The very idea that one has to find evidence of conspiracy before gaining utility from the ASSUMPTION of conspiracy is power-depriving and power-holding nonsense. Breaking out of that thinking is critical to seeing just how useful it is to generalize the idea of conspiracy and start employing it everywhere.

                  But I do caution – conspiracy theory IS a fruit of the tree of knowledge, and as such it is dangerous, like all knowledge. This is one reason I’m very open about it. The black hats have wanted it all to themselves. BAD black hats!

        After things have been cleaned out, I think we will all be amazed by how well it can work…when accountable, transparent, and free from politicization/weaponization. (And yes, I feel VERY keenly just how much harm has been caused and how much work needs to be done to regain the trust of the citizens of this great country… Whether I am a part of that or not remains to be seen…, but I sincerely hope in my lifetime to see it restored to where it belongs.)

          Trust is a fickle thing mefotobug. It’s hard to earn but pretty darn easy to lose. In the case of our federal IC, it will be a lot harder to regain our trust because to this very moment there are crooks within the IC still trying to subvert the law and people’s rights. The IC simply became far too big, and amassed far too much unaccountable power.

          I know many are begging restraint, claiming it’s only a “few” at the top. Until we know which “few”, and they are conspicuously removed permanently and punished, and the shenanigans, false flag events, loss of unaccounted millions of dollars, and bullying of American citizens and violations of their rights is stopped, there will be no trust.

              Here is the issue…we don’t have those protections. I think you’ve seen how deep and massive this Deep State well is and those in the Intel community are only as brave as the next leadership above them. Once you bring this up to your chain of command they’ll look around and say I am not going to take on the Executive Level of DOJ or FBI or NSD or NSA, etc…Binney tried, Snowden was going to and looked at the history as well and we know what happened there…for the most part. ;o)

              Many of your low and mid level analysts, who really are the engine of the community, will not bring these violations up because basically we do not know who to trust and do not want to get burned, outed, or Seth Rich’d.

              https://spectator.org/39326_americas-ruling-class-and-perils-revolution/

              “[…]Differences between Bushes, Clintons, and Obamas are of degree, not kind. Moreover, 2009-10 establishment Republicans sought only to modify the government’s agenda while showing eagerness to join the Democrats in new grand schemes, if only they were allowed to. Sen. Orrin Hatch continued dreaming of being Ted Kennedy, while Lindsey Graham set aside what is true or false about “global warming” for the sake of getting on the right side of history. No prominent Republican challenged the ruling class’s continued claim of superior insight, nor its denigration of the American people as irritable children who must learn their place. The Republican Party did not disparage the ruling class, because most of its officials are or would like to be part of it.

              Never has there been so little diversity within America’s upper crust. Always, in America as elsewhere, some people have been wealthier and more powerful than others. But until our own time America’s upper crust was a mixture of people who had gained prominence in a variety of ways, who drew their money and status from different sources and were not predictably of one mind on any given matter. The Boston Brahmins, the New York financiers, the land barons of California, Texas, and Florida, the industrialists of Pittsburgh, the Southern aristocracy, and the hardscrabble politicians who made it big in Chicago or Memphis had little contact with one another. Few had much contact with government, and “bureaucrat” was a dirty word for all. So was “social engineering.” Nor had the schools and universities that formed yesterday’s upper crust imposed a single orthodoxy about the origins of man, about American history, and about how America should be governed. All that has changed.

              Today’s ruling class, from Boston to San Diego, was formed by an educational system that exposed them to the same ideas and gave them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits. These amount to a social canon of judgments about good and evil, complete with secular sacred history, sins (against minorities and the environment), and saints. Using the right words and avoiding the wrong ones when referring to such matters — speaking the “in” language — serves as a badge of identity. Regardless of what business or profession they are in, their road up included government channels and government money because, as government has grown, its boundary with the rest of American life has become indistinct. Many began their careers in government and leveraged their way into the private sector. Some, e.g., Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, never held a non-government job. Hence whether formally in government, out of it, or halfway, America’s ruling class speaks the language and has the tastes, habits, and tools of bureaucrats. It rules uneasily over the majority of Americans not oriented to government.

              The two classes have less in common culturally, dislike each other more, and embody ways of life more different from one another than did the 19th century’s Northerners and Southerners — nearly all of whom, as Lincoln reminded them, “prayed to the same God.” By contrast, while most Americans pray to the God “who created and doth sustain us,” our ruling class prays to itself as “saviors of the planet” and improvers of humanity. Our classes’ clash is over “whose country” America is, over what way of life will prevail, over who is to defer to whom about what. The gravity of such divisions points us, as it did Lincoln, to Mark’s Gospel: “if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”[…]”

          Navysquid i very much appreciate your post and perspective. I have a close relative in very similar position as you. That person has almost quit twice in the past few years due to frustration with inside ethics and politics. That person is a very straight-up, very moral and genuinely generous individual that it pained me to see their getting so conflicted in their job.

          Basically, they said there was no one to talk with because of top-down pressure. Everyone was working under duress for several years. Just recently that person noted the work environment had improved a bit. I don’t press them for details because they of course cannot elaborate.

          So I have particular empathy with the rank and file who are generally white hats, and believe you when you describe the military side as most patriotic and less corrupt. That agrees with my relatives assessment as well.

                Thanks, rose, but I’m not sure I explained Page better, maybe just different. Lots of folks here have offered their take on the guy and I see kernels of truth in them all.

                I’ve got a somewhat different take from my past experience with a couple eccentric fellas. It’s stuck with me for 40-some years and there’s another friend in my current life that’s same-same.

                In children, we can see and immediately recognize disposition: there’s the bold kid, there’s the timid kid. I believe psychologists have identified that much of that is inborn – there can be environmental factors later, certainly, but often the timid kid is just born that way. It’s in his neurochemical makeup, I think is part of the explanation.

                So that’s what I see in Page. Aside from others’ observations that he may be playing roles, putting on an act – all possible – my first impression is that I see an odd bird.

                Probably born odd. Wired odd.

    This might have been mentioned earlier, but it seems that most of the areas from which AG Sessions recused himself today have been brought back in under DOJ purview, including that of the AG himself. This no longer is about Russian influence; it is about Americans — American government officials — lying and subverting the electoral process. Looks to me like all bets are off regarding the what the AG can now investigate and what he “cannot.”

      Sessions’ recusal is only for overseeing investigation of his own doings and anything viewed through the lens of being in his interest to ignore as an investigator; e.g., the campaign and his associates.

      There is no reason he cannot initiate an investigation of his own house (DOJ/FBI) for their transgressions against him, the campaign, or anyone else. After all, his interest is to nail the bastards, so an investigation under his purview will likely be thorough. The courts and the defense counsel serve their purpose to check his zeal. Ergo, balance.

        Penn also suggested how the campaign might take advantage of this. “Every speech should contain the line that you were born in the middle of America to the middle class in the middle of the last century,” he advised Clinton. “And talk about the basic bargain as about [sic] the deeply American values you grew up with, learned as a child, and that drive you today.” He went on: “Let’s explicitly own ‘American’ in our programs, the speeches and the values. He doesn’t … Let’s add flag symbols to the backgrounds [of campaign events].”

        Penn may have been right then, though his candidate still lost, and I think he’s right now.

    “Dems expand 2018 message to ‘draining the swamp’

    Democrats are turning their campaign message to the many scandals swirling around the Trump administration, betting that vows to “drain the swamp” will attract voters to their side in November.

    In extending their message to include an anti-corruption component, the Democrats are painting the Trump administration — and its Republican supporters on Capitol Hill — as an unscrupulous group that’s using power to pad its own pockets while peddling policies to the highest corporate bidder. The Democrats are promising voters they’d be an alternative: The party that would clean the place up.”

    http://thehill.com/homenews/house/388699-dems-expand-2018-message-to-draining-the-swamp

    This is completely preposterous and outrageous!

    Get these perp walks going! They won’t stop, any way they can turn it around in their favor, they have no honor at all, will never admit to wrongdoing, will always lie or spin it to some bullcrap like did it for the sake of the country. Now they are going the drain the swamp that they filled. Get out of town!

Why the heck was he even on the campaign if he was aiming for AG and it would be a conflict of interest? But he has recused himself over a complete farce that badly needs prosecuted.

    Overlooked is the role of Chief Justice John Roberts in the FBI’s spying on the Trump Campaign for President. Justice Roberts rewrote the Fourth Amendment on Feb. 28th, 2016 to make it easier for the FBI to spy on the President.

    The Fourth Amendment was rewritten under Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. This amendment governs searches and seizures. 

    The FBI began using it before it became law Dec. 1st.

    Congress never voted on it.
