      I’ve been writing about how huge this is. It’s and octopus with tentacles. So much bigger we have to break it into pieces to follow it. We need to condense and summarize. This must be our strategy….this research will be going on forever if we don’t pick something and start putting these laggards in prison. RICO them….all. Let the participants fill in the blanks.

      This article is a huge danger sign for time sucking…..this is massive corruption.

      “So far, at least five different ways that the officials spied on the Trump campaign have been uncovered.

      These include the use of national security letters, a FISA warrant, an undercover informant, the unmasking of identities in intelligence reports, and spying conducted by foreign intelligence agencies.”

        I agree, the level of corruption that is being exposed is waaaaay beyond what we associate with RICO cases of the past. That is one reason why I am tired on people who complain that “nothing” is happening because they haven’t “seen” any arrests of top people. Sessions has been in place for little more than a year. The DOJ/FBI he inherited was MASSIVELY corrupt and purging properly is time consuming. Additionally, our judiciary is corrupt. It’s vital to get Trump nominees in place before bringing criminals to court. If done prematurely we’d get OJ results and would be unable to retry them with honest judges. Finally, public support for prosecutions needed to build among Independent and sane Democrat voters to coounteract the enemedia narrative that prosecutions were merely dictator Trump going after political opponents. This required bringing the public up to speed on the breadth of corruption, something even Republicans are unaware of, while letting the Russia hysteria wear itself naturally. Team Trump have been waging their war against the Satanic Global Swamp with jaw dropping brilliance imho. I hope more and more people, especially his supporters, come to appreciate whats happening. #TheGreatAwakening

      Great post, as per his usual. This is especially accurate….

      QUOTE:

      “The hysteria over Jeff Sessions is ridiculous.

      I can only assume that the ‘Hannity Posse’ is running a deliberate anti-Sessions misinformation campaign, to conceal what’s going on.

      Why?

      23. AG Sessions is behind the entire takedown.

      He set it up.

      He has created a DEADLY investigative & enforcement machine, combining Horowitz OIG’s investigation/law enforcement power, with Dep Att Huber’s DOJ law enforcement team.

      A machine that is routing the bad guys.

      24. Something POTUS knows full well, hence the importance of protecting his AG, by distancing himself:

      25. Be in no doubt. Trump knows full well that this tweet is BS (because it is).

      But it’s an effective way of distracting the most ignorant MSM ever seen in America.

      It gives them a picture they want to see, after all.

      26. Sun Tzu:

      ‘Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections…/…

      27. /…’It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.’

      28. ‘The incompetent Drumpf & his Mr Magoo AG’.

      That’s the play (and image) Trump & Sessions are giving to their VERY stupid enemies.

      And the idiots believe it, 100%. EVERY TIME.

        Read that earlier, very interesting point of view re: Sessions. Many PT supporters have a negative opinion of the AG. But if the AG is as lame as some people depict I have a hard time reconciling that with the fact the President hasn’t fired him. On that basis we logically have to conclude PT disparaging the AG is part of a disinformation campaign. I can’t say who’s right about the AG but I do believe we’ll soon find out which way it goes.

        I listened with interest when Guilliani said in an interview this week. “I would have recused myself if I took the AG spot.” Directly followed by his immediate elfish retraction.
        “What what what am I saying?” Complete with wide eyes and cackle. He does this over and over and over in interviews.

        These statements by RG over the last 18 months are going to be some sort of road map. Either to encourage someone taking hits or encourage people with something of value to reveal to get off the fence.

    TGP EXCLUSIVE: Former Intelligence Officers Find ‘Indisputable Evidence U. S. Intel Leaders Were Linked to British in Spygate Scandal

    “The Gateway Pundit investigative journalist Cassandra Fairbanks interviewed three former intelligence officers with knowledge of the corrupt – criminal activity of the Obama CIA.

    The former officers told The Gateway Pundit:

    The U.K.’s Joint Intelligence Committee was the venue used by the CIA and the DNI to share and receive “intelligence” allegedly linking Trump to Russia.

    The sources believe that John Brennan and James Clapper used highly classified intelligence channels to create a trail of fake evidence linking Trump to Russia.

    George Papadopoulos was targeted deliberately by U.K. intel operatives in a plot to trick him.

    It was Joseph Mifsud, not Papadopoulos, who raised the prospect of meeting with the Russians and introduced the claim that Russia had damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

    Joeseph Mifsud was a British operative, not a Russian asset.

    The only entity that could have coordinated the entire operation was the Obama White House….”

      I have commented before and still believe that the Melania story does not fit for me. I am not going down the msm rabbit hole. I have always come from a concern for FLOTUS. I admire her. From the initial announcement of the procedure and anticipated hospital stay of “3-4 days”, it raised a flag. That procedure is usually outpatient or overnight. Of course I am not her physician nor do I possess all the facts. We were then told she came home that saturday (6 days). That was two weeks ago tomorrow. Not a single photo or appearance. Something is extremely odd. I only pray she is safe and well.

      • ladypenquin says:

        I disagree on the idea that her hospitalization should have been short. This idea of “outpatient” or overnight, is totally inadequate for many surgical procedures, though we’ve all been encouraged to think that way. As an RN I can give this opinion, and can tell you numerous stories where a longer hospitalization would have been helpful.

        As this is the First Lady we’re talking about, it was good they kept her and made sure everything was okay. Events often occur 2-3 days out from procedure.

        That said, the best thing is for her to get some rest and totally back to her normal self before resuming the demanding duties of First Lady.

        Of course, we pray that she recovers quickly because we miss her.

            Americans also have a very different idea of “recovery times” than people who grew up in other parts of the world.

            People go in and out of the hosp. here and get back on their feet in record time- wether it’s good for them to do so or not.

            I have to say, nearly everyone I’ve ever known who grew up in other countries, from China to Italy and everything in between, took more recup. time and “take it easy” time than any American.

          For example…

          Joseph Goebbels and his wife murdered their 6 children on the day they both committed suicide outside of Hitler’s bunker in Berlin. Testimony from others inside the bunker varied, but the given reason was that she “did not want her children to grow up hearing that their father had been one of the century’s foremost criminals”.

          Sound extreme? It shouldn’t.

          Just under a year ago….on June 14, 2017…a Bernie Sanders supporter attempted the mass murder of GOP congressmen on a baseball diamond.

            Although I doubt they bugged the first lady, “naive” is an accurate assessment of those who think it is impossible. I will guarantee the CIA has done it to someone.

            During the primaries I believe I was the first to point out on the CTH that Google was manipulating their search engine to promote Hillary and marginalize Trump. Everyone thought I was “out there” but before long it became obvious.

            After Trump rode the escalator down, googling the letter “T” would bring up Trump. After a week or so you had to type in the entire Trump name and only negative articles would appear. Type in “H” and you had thousands of glowing articles to choose from about HIllary.

            Also, popular Pro-Trump articles would become almost impossible to find a few days. It was obvious Google was manually overriding their own system.

            Another thing that many still doubt is the ease that emails and phone calls can be intercepted. Start searching the web and you find out how YOU can spy on anyone you know. Furthermore our government has copies of every text, phone call and email ever made and don’t think for a minute they don’t.

      A comment Dennis made was that Twitter was like The Wild West and he talked about tweeting something that sounded pretty innocuous to me and he said he was just savaged for it. And he shrugged. He said it comes with the territory and you have to develop a thick skin fast.

      But still, Candace is a lovely young woman and she is smart and skillful and it makes me sad that she has to put up with this garbage just because she has the courage to think and speak for herself.

        Owens is very articulate, an enormously talented woman opposing immensely evil entities. It’s inevitable that she’d be attacked in the meanest, nastiest manner. A smear-job is typically how opponents are crushed, it’s wonderful to see Owens stand up for herself.

      Ms. Owens will face more attacks as she challenges their failed orthodoxy. My best wishes and prayers.

      She is right over the target. Kanye West had an album release party the other day and she was photographed there, along with a lot of celebrities. A few months ago, I would have said such a thing was impossible.

      When I saw her very first YouTube video posted here last year, I knew she would be an important voice – I didn’t realize how fast that would happen. This is not a woman to mess with.

            I did no such thing. Allison Mack was involved with NXIVM (actually co-leader) for five of the years she was on Smallville. She has been indicted on several charges, one of which is child trafficking. I have researched NXIVM extensively.

            There was never any suggestion on my part or in the MEME to suggest that Smallville should be cancelled. “Roseanne Gets Canceled After a Tweet – Smallville is Still On After Actress is Charged For Child Trafficking.” Those are two statements juxtapositioned. My reading suggests that Roseanne is unfairly treated. Nowhere do I understand the message to be that Smallville be cancelled. Your understanding is clearing different.

            You have every right to your opinion that it is a dumb meme.

            You have no right to charge that I posted w/out checking if it had any basis in fact. Your charge is erroneous.

            • I am sorry if it seems I had hostility toward you. I do have hostility toward the use of memes. They ordinarily distort through gross oversimplifications.

              There’s no basis for comparing Roseanne’s situation with Smallville in any way. The actress owned no piece of Smallville, and it was not named after her character. She was a hired performer, and her misdeeds were unrelated to the show.

              Tom Werner, executive producer and co-creator of both versions of Roseanne said within the past day or so that he “hopes she gets the help she needs”. To me this indicates she was exhibiting bizarre behavior (as she did years before), has a substance abuse problem a bit bigger than Ambien, or both.

              As I have said in several posts previously, I believe ABC wanted to cancel not because of Roseanne’s tweets, but because the show was rapidly losing audience, staff was quitting over behind the scenes turmoil (just like every past show Roseanne has been involved with), and it was very expensive to produce due to high star salaries.

              It was the advertisers who forced the cancellation though, not Michelle Obama or anyone else. THEY said they would not pay to produce future episodes. Roseanne did not make a mistake in trying to apologize. She has some kind of problem she is not in control of, and IMO was genuinely upset it impacted her co-workers.

    • phoenixRising / InvisibleMikey, the comments on this one is really funny. It reminds me of a story I read as a child about four blind men describing an elephant – each was describing the elephant correctly but they all were wrong.
      It seems people commenting on this have not watched TV since 2000 – 2001 (about the time when Smallville started). It ended years ago. What people are watching now are reruns. Now unless I am wrong now (thanks to President Trump I kinda lost interest in watching television – have not watched a TV series as a regular TV buff I once was for past almost two years now. 24, NCIS, CSI, Smallville, etc were good ones.) and they rebooted the series then count me in as the 5th blind men :).
      It is possible that I may be missing the point and this is actually meant to cancel the reruns? Then probably it is a valid point. But seriously, how many actually see reruns regularly and how much is the impact on networks pocket book?
      What ABC did by cancelling Roseanne, is actually surprising and a very bad business decision – especially now that Solo tanked (in comparison to normal StarWars movie revenue expectations). There is an article on americanthinker today that sort of shine a light on plausible explanation for cancelling Roseanne and taking the hit on the bottom line. I would not mention the details or link the article here since I do not like to be the one spreading something that maybe fake news.

      The Inspector General’s report on the FBI’s crooked investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails and private server should have been released this week, several FBI sources are confirming.

      But defense attorneys for FBI brass are delaying the report, FBI insiders said.

      According to FBI agents, Bureau brass and former agents report that their private attorneys have been working for weeks with the Inspector General, disputing its findings and partaking in legal jockeying and maneuvers trying to change portions of the report.

      Or get the Inspector General to alter wording in the report to soften some of the negative charges and findings linked to their clients.

      Is the original report, completed weeks ago, being watered down?

      “Cut the report loose already, I mean they have had ample time,” one FBI agent said late Friday.

      The report was supposed to be released in March. Then April. Then May. Then this week. Then next week.

      One FBI agent called the delayed IG report a “mockery.”

      “Many agents are not happy,” one FBI official said. “This keeps dragging on.”

      The American public knows how you feel.

      This story is developing.

          This news came out on May 14. Today is June 1. That’s just over two weeks, and today was HUGE economic news that PDJT would NOT want overshadowed by the IG report.

          The TP article is based upon UNNAMED sources. Moreover, the claim “should have been released” is unsupported, as “avg. time is about 2 weeks” and “has been this way since 2005”.

          And this part….

          “disputing its findings and partaking in legal jockeying and maneuvers trying to change portions of the report”

          ….is pure baloney.

          They cannot change the report nor what is in it. They can only comment on it.

      The Democratic Party’s Two-Facedness of Race Relations

      01/05/11

      “I’ll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
      ~ Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One

      I had never heard the above quote from Ronald Kessler’s book, Inside the White House before but my father had told me about LBJ’s terrible mouth and frightful personality.

      If you listen to Democrats (many of you do — at least those who watch MSNBC and read the NY Times rabidly), you hear fanciful yarns spun so sweetly about how LBJ ended racism, segregation and voting inequality in America. They make him sound like Mr. Rogers.

      How long will the Democrats continue their absurd charade? All the while claiming Republicans are racist, meanwhile the Democrats are the party clearly responsible for the contemptible Jim Crow laws. Let’s see how proud these secret, racist beliefs make current day Democrats. Let’s see how they like the real truth being told about their party.

      When I was nine, a friend of my father’s worked in the LBJ White House and was unhappily close with LBJ. He was writing a book about his experiences with this foul-mouthed, racist president and somehow I got my hands on it. I was fascinated. I had never encountered such words or their rampant use — even when no vulgarity was necessary, an inside view of a president that 99.9% of the country never saw.

      LBJ was an awful man. He only promoted and signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the 1965 Voting Rights Act because he thought it was politically expedient. He disagreed violently and kept it a secret, something I think is unreservedly detestable. Or is it a common politician’s disease?

      Let’s look at another quote attributed to “Great Society & Civil Rights Hero” LBJ:

      “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

      Could this be the type of man — it was whispered — who had his boss killed to get his job?

      Here are more devastating quotes from the ‘party that cares’ (or pretends to care, to deceive voters):

      “Mr. President, the crime of lynching . . . is not of sufficient importance to justify this legislation.”
      — Sen. Claude Pepper (D., Fla.), 1938, spoken during a six-hour speech against the anti-lynching bill

      “I am a former Kleagle [recruiter] of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County . . . The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state in the union.”
      — Robert C. Byrd, 1946, Democratic Senator from West Virginia, 1959-2010, Senate Majority Leader, 1977-80 and 1987-88, Senate President Pro Tempore, 1989-95, 2001-03, 2007-2010

      President Truman’s civil rights program “is a farce and a sham—an effort to set up a police state in the guise of liberty. I am opposed to that program. I have voted against the so-called poll tax repeal bill … I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill.”
      — Rep. Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1948, U.S. Senator, 1949-61, Senate Majority Leader, 1955-61, President, 1963-69

      “I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes.”
      — Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961.
      (Kennedy later authorized wire-tapping the phones and bugging the hotel rooms of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.)

      “Everybody likes to go to Geneva. I used to do it for the Law of the Sea conferences and you’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.”
      — Sen. Ernest F. Hollings (D., S.C.) 1993, Chairman, Commerce Committee, 1987-95 and 2001-03, candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 1984

      “I do not think it is an exaggeration at all to say to my friend from West Virginia [Sen. Robert C. Byrd, a former Ku Klux Klan recruiter] that he would have been a great senator at any moment . . . He would have been right during the great conflict of civil war in this nation.”
      — Sen. Christopher Dodd (D., Conn.), 2004, Chairman, Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 2008

      To add insult to injury for African-Americans, Bill Clinton, the absurdly-titled, “First Black President,” was apparently not as big a supporter of black Americans as his esteemed title would imply. In his book, Ron Brown’s Body, Jack Cashill first refers to Clinton’s White House as a place where “minorities,” such as Brown, “were not only exploitable but expendable.”

      My final quote on race hypocrisy comes from our current President, Barack Hussein Obama:

      From Dreams of My Father:

      “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.”

      These quotes from Dems are why minority voters are starting to understand how they’ve been swindled into thinking that the Democratic Party best represents their interests.

      That’s worrisome for Democrats at large. The facts, coming home to roost, will create a major backlash against the Democratic Party.
