    Not sure what all has been covered, but I have two items:

    1. Reading through SD’s articles and all of the comments, it now seems obvious why Eric Holder was incensed that the investigation would proceed and actually expose who was the purported genesis of the FISA applications, so much so that he made threats demanding that the investigation be shut down.

    2. Carter Page did some work in previous years for the FBI, and has now been badly used/abused by them. He’s not happy:

    “Truth Was Irrelevant” WSJ Asks: Was Brennan’s Action The Real “Treason”?

    “The Wall Street Journal continues to counter the liberal mainstream media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome, dropping uncomfortable truth-bombs and refusing to back off its intense pressure to get to the truth and hold those responsible, accountable (in a forum that is hard for the establishment to shrug off as ‘Alt-Right’ or ‘Nazi’ or be ‘punished’ by search- and social-media-giants).

    And once again Kimberley Strassel – who by now has become the focus of social media attacks for her truth-seeking reporting – does it again this morning, as she points out – after his ‘treasonous’ outbursts, that Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan acknowledges that it was him egging on the FBI’s probe of Trump and Russia.

      comment lifted from zeroHedge:

      “… communist Brennan was hired, as a CIA operative, by Aldrich Ames, NY CIA chief, KGB mole and KGB recruiter. Ames is now serving a life sentence for treason, as a KGB spy, KGB recruiter and other crimes associated with it. His protege, John Brennan, was ripe for the picking as a KGB mole from the get-go for his diehard communist ideals. He also switched allegiance to the Islamic cause. How he rose to be a CIA Director is beyond any “intelligence” logic and might show the ineptness of that agency. And he still holds “top security clearance”? Go figure. “

  8. I’m not finding any confirmation of this news and don’t know much about Hal Turner. But if it’s true, it confirms China is blinking in the trade war by making such a large capitulation to the US and throwing fellow Eurasian partner Iran under the bus. Turner is not exaggerating when he suggests you can see a clear path to WW3 as the regional dominoes react. I guess we’ll know soon enough.

    You will love this article at Moon of Alabama:

    ‘Progressives Are Putin Stooges’ – How Centrists Will Help To Reelect Trump’

    Here’s a taste:
    “The republican establishment has now bought into the ‘Russian meddling’ meme to suppress the insurgency within its party. It is trying to limit the space for Trump to achieve more radical measures, especially in foreign policies. The democratic establishment is using the very same trick. ‘Russian meddling’ must be responsible for the insurgency within their own party. Progressive candidates are Putin marionettes.”

    Another snippet:
    “Horton claims to have talked with ‘European intelligence analysts’ who allegedly told him that Putin authorized an ‘active measure campaign’ to split the Democratic party to let Trump and the Republicans win again:

    The Russian operation will also aim, in the classic fashion, to pick Democratic candidates in the primary period who, for whatever reasons, are seen as likely not electable. Some evidence for this is clearly at play now. The key thing to look for is not positive messaging supporting any particular policy program, but negative messaging attacking other Democrats.
    To point out what Democratic candidates Putin will pick Horton adds a picture from the NYT piece which shows a ‘progressives’ candidate with an ‘Abolish ICE’ t-shirt.

    Political scientist and author Corey Robin notes:

    In other words, we should look at these [progressive] candidates as tainted by a “Russian operation”. Based on nothing other than the word of an individual who cites no facts but alleged conversations with “European intelligence analysts”.

    October 2016 – In paid remarks to private groups, Clinton boasted of having a personal relationship with Putin.

    Then, she said, Putin invited her to what she described as his “private inner sanctum.”

    “So we go down the stairs, we go down this long hall, we go into this private inner sanctum. All of his, you know, very beefy security guys are there, they all jump up at attention, you know, they punch a code, he goes through a heavily-armed door,” she reportedly narrated. “And then we’re in an inner, inner sanctum with, you know, just this long, wooden table, and then further back, there’s a desk and the biggest map of Russia I ever saw. And he starts talking to me about, you know, the habitat of the tigers and the habitat of the seals and the whales.”

        I have a different take on that. I have noticed that in two separate interviews, Goodlatte has said that RR was not around during the time of FISA/Dossier. Both times when asked if RR should recuse himself, Goodlatte replied that RR is getting us the documents that we need and that there are many more that we need from the DOJ/FBI. I found that very peculiar. It is almost as if RR is being “used” to get these documents to the Congress for the time being. If you get a chance, go back and listen to how he phrases it. He has said that twice now. It is almost as if they have RR backed into a corner and are getting all that they can from him before they throw him to the wolves.

          It’s all about timing. The hope in the WH must be he’ll give up and go. He’s afraid to before Mueller finally strikes. Mueller is intent on taking down DJT no matter what.

      Actually, Goodlatte believes there is important information in the redacted portions that citizens deserve to know:

      Representative Goodlatte: “I have had the opportunity … to read these FISA warrant applications without all of those redactions… and I think it is critically important that the American people have the opportunity to see most of the rest of those documents.”

    I borrowed this comment from another post elsewhere on FB… it isn’t mine, but it is rather brilliant.

    “To all the people who let this election break up families and friends let this sink in I think the last civil conversations we had occurred just days before November 8, 2016. You were supremely confident Hillary Clinton would win the presidential election; you voted for her with glee. As a lifelong Republican, I bit down hard and cast my vote for Donald Trump. Then the unimaginable happened. He won.
    And you lost your freaking minds.

    I knew you would take the loss hard—and personally—since all of you were super jacked-up to elect the first woman president. But I did not imagine you would become totally deranged, attacking anyone who voted for Trump or supported his presidency as a racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic Nazi-sympathizer.

    The weirdness started on social media late on Election Night, as it became clear Hillary was going to lose. A few of you actually admitted that you were cradling your sleeping children, weeping, wondering what to tell your kindergartner the next morning about Trump’s victory. It continued over the next several days. Some of you seriously expressed fear about modern-day concentration camps. Despite living a privileged lifestyle, you were suddenly a casualty of the white patriarchy. Your daughters were future victims; your sons were predators-in-waiting. You threatened to leave Facebook because you could no longer enjoy the family photos or vacation posts from people who, once friends, became Literal Hitlers to you on November 8 because they voted for Donald Trump.

    I admit I was a little hurt at first. The attacks against us Trump voters were so personal and so vicious that I did not think it could be sustained. I thought maybe you would regain your sanity after some turkey and egg nog.

    But you did not. You got worse. And I went from sad to angry to where I am today: Amused.
    As the whole charade you have been suckered into over the last 18 months starts to fall apart—that Trump would not survive his presidency; he would be betrayed by his own staff, family, and/or political party; he would destroy the Republican Party; he would be declared mentally ill and removed from office; he would be handcuffed and dragged out of the White House by Robert Mueller for “colluding” with Russia—let me remind you what complete fools you have made of yourselves. Not to mention how you’ve been fooled by the media, the Democratic Party, and your new heroes on the NeverTrump Right.

    On November 9, you awoke from a self-induced, eight-year-long political coma to find that White House press secretaries shade the truth and top presidential advisors run political cover for their boss. You were shocked to discover that presidents exaggerate, even lie, on occasion. You became interested for the first time about the travel accommodations, office expenses, and lobbyist pals of administration officials. You started counting how many rounds of golf the president played. You suddenly thought it was fine to mock the first lady now that she wasn’t Michelle Obama. Once you removed your pussy hat after attending the Women’s March, you made fun of Kellyanne Conway’s hair, Sarah Sanders’ weight, Melania Trump’s shoes, Hope Hicks’ death stare; you helped fuel a rumor started by a bottom-feeding author that U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley slept with Donald Trump. You thought it was A-OK that Betsy DeVos was nearly physically assaulted and routinely heckled. You glorified a woman who has sex on camera for a paycheck.

    You have learned all kinds of new things that those of us who didn’t willfully ignore politics for the past eight years already knew. For example, we already knew that illegal immigrants were being deported and families were being separated.

    Some of your behavior has been kinda cute. It was endearing to watch you become experts on the Logan Act, the Hatch Act, the Second Amendment, the 25th Amendment, and the Emoluments Clause. You developed a new crush on Mitt Romney after calling him a “sexist” for having “binders full of women.” You longed for a redux of the presidency of George W. Bush, a man you once wanted imprisoned for war crimes. Ditto for John McCain. You embraced people like Bill Kristol and David Frum without knowing anything about their histories of shotgunning the Iraq War.

    Classified emails shared by Hillary Clinton? Who cares! Devin Nunes wanting to declassify crucial information of the public interest? Traitor!
    But your newfound admiration and fealty to law enforcement really has been a fascinating transformation. Wasn’t it just last fall that I saw you loudly supporting professional athletes who were protesting police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem? Remember how you fanboyed a mediocre quarterback for wearing socks that depicted cops as pigs?

    But now you sound like paid spokesmen for the Fraternal Order of Police. You insist that any legitimate criticism of the misconduct and possibile criminality that occured at the Justice Department and FBI is an “attack on law enforcement.” While you once opposed the Patriot Act because it might have allowed the federal government to spy on terrorists who were using the local library to learn how to make suitcase bombs, you now fully support the unchecked power of a secret court to look into the phone calls, text messages and emails of an American citizen because he volunteered for the Trump campaign for a few months.
    Spying on terrorists, circa 2002: Bad. Spying on Carter Page, circa 2017: The highest form of patriotism.

    And that white, male patriarchy that you were convinced would strip away basic rights and silence any opposition after Trump won? That fear has apparently been washed away as you hang on every word uttered by James Comey, John Brennan, and James Clapper. This triumvirate is exhibit “A” of the old-boy network, and represents how the insularity, arrogance, and cover-your-tracks mentality of the white-male power structure still prevails. Yet, instead of rising up against it, you are buying their books, retweeting their Twitter rants and blasting anyone who dares to question their testicular authority. Your pussy hat must be very sad.

    But your daily meltdowns about Trump-Russia election collusion have been the most entertaining to observe. After Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel, you were absolutely convinced it would result in Trump’s arrest and/or impeachment. Some of you insisted that Trump wouldn’t last beyond 2017. You quickly swallowed any chum tossed at you by the Trump-hating media on MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post about who was going down next, or who would flip on the president.

    For the past year, I have watched you obsess over a rotating cast of characters: Paul Manafort, Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, Carter Page, Reince Priebus, Jeff Sessions, Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon, Sam Nunberg, and Hope Hicks are just a few of the people you thought would turn on Trump or hasten his political demise. But when those fantasies didn’t come true, you turned to Michael Avenatti and Stormy Daniels for hope and inspiration. It will always be your low point.
    Well, I think it will be. Each time I believe you’ve hit bottom, you come up with a new baseline. Perhaps defending the unprecedented use of federal power to spy on political foes then lie about it will the next nail in your credibility coffin.

    The next several weeks will be tough for you. I think Americans will learn some very hard truths about what happened in the previous administration and how we purposely have been misled by powerful leaders and the news media. I wish I could see you as a victim here, but you are not. I know you are smart; you chose to support this insurgency with your eyes widebvb open.

    Now, I shall sit back and enjoy your pain.”

    President Trump is right to focus on the elections. He does rallies and even joined forces with the Republican Party because he knows that his Presidency is in jeopardy. I see no reason to celebrate the slowly dragging out of these DOJ/FBI Swamp creature watch. It’s a sham.

    I read that the Democrats have signed up 12 million more Democrat voters. How’d that happen?

    Watch for illegals being given ID’s…….and then moving and registering in states that the Swamp needs to take over the USA again. Focus on illegals from Eric Holder/California, that is where the Swamp command and control is. Using fake CA ID’s to get legit ID’s in other states they want to take over.

    12 million must be the mathematical number the Swamp determined the silent people (us) voted so the huge corrupted voting machine is primed and ready to go for the Swamp. Corrupted voting is why Hillary was so confident, not because Americans liked her. Americans don’t like Hillary, never have.

    We should do something to save ourselves, because by now the Swamp has all of our information and when they take over again…. get ready to be punished. The Tea Party was taken out by both Dems and Repubs, and punished by the alphabet agencies. It will be worse this time, they will make examples out of us.

    If it isn’t possible to do it yourself, maybe help those who are….these people know what’s really going on.

  33. I had to turn Faux news off. Brett Butthair had Mary “I Just Projectile Vomited” Harfe, Juan “The Mad Blexican” Williams, and Britt “Megyn’s Beeyatch” Hume on. That garbage has become unwatchable.

    Now there’s that damn Chuck Schumer again, this time on the 8PM Eastern CBS Radio News report. He’s going on about the 3-D guns that can be printed and that actually work. These firearms are hard to detect by metal detectors since they’re made of plastic alloys. Schumer is upset about this. He says “the gun lobby” (code for the NRA, I guess) is pushing to allow these guns to be more available. Schumer says “the gun lobby wants all Americans to have a gun” and that “he wants bi-partisan support in Congress on a bill to stop this”.
    Sen. Schumer: Guess what? the SECOND AMENDMENT eviscerates your argument. The SECOND AMENDMENT was written by the Founders PRECISELY to ensure the freedom of American citizens from people LIKE YOU.

    • I thought Shumer would be a better lying lawyer for the Democrats,
      He use to be more creative and more persuasive in his advocacy for the left.
      It is like he is reading a script and his heart is not in it.

      A 3D gun printed using weed eater line ain’t a complete gun. You still need a metal barrel, firing mechanism and stuff associated with a pistol. No way are you going to shoot a bullet through a plastic barrel.
      Printing a plastic magazine and grip doesn’t make a gun. GEEZE!

        ecmarsh, your information is incomplete.
        There are videos currently available which more than demonstrate the capacities of newer materials to handle temperature, forces, friction etc. And they are available right now as we type.
        These materials do not require a metal barrel, nor do they need metal firing mechanisms.
        They do indeed allow you to fire a bullet through a “plastic” barrel.
        Get on your search engine.
        You might be surprised.

      iirc, the gunlobby/NRA has not a THING to do with this.
      there have been instructions for how to make a printed AR-15 on the internet for quite a while now.
      And there is no way this possibility can be controlled.
      That’s the real problem for Chuckie…he cannot control this, and he still thinks he can control stuff.
      haha on him.
      I personally see this development as the next big deal.
      it really does change a lot, if you think ab it.
      Cheap printers are avail right now which have this capability.
      All you need is a vendor for the suitable material/”ink”, and it ON.
      and, this being America, vendors of suitable “ink” will pop up like mushrooms.
      Try and regulate THAT.

    I keep coming back to Manafort and wondering if he was a plant on a couple levels. First, to get the FBI into the Trump campaign. And second, to ensure Trump was the nominee.

      Trump won the nomination fair and square. Manafort was hired to help deal with any convention shenanigans, as certain Republicans were attemptimf to stymie the will of the people and poach delegates. One the convention was over, his job was done and he was fired.

      Was he suggested to Trump as part of the set up? Who knows, but he did his job well.

    The Dems are like the Japs in WWII. They put up a fierce resistance, but in the end they will all be wiped out. They have already gone Kamikaze, but they soon will capitulate. Unconditional Surrender must be our policy. They will have to be re-educated. It will be in their best interest in the long run.

    Russia, Russia, Russia is a smokescreen screamed by the DemonKKKrats so that no one focuses on the Blue Wave of ILLEGALS who will vote in the midterms. Conservatives need to take a stand and closely monitor EVERY voting site. The system is rigged to favor illegal voting and 95% of the illegal votes will go to the Free-$hit Party!

    He is a hard core Trump supporter! He told me he would take a bullet for the President any Day!
    He calls the what’s going on in Washington pure evil, literally, and wants to help TN wake up to the fact that the government has run amuck!
    I love this guy! If you get a chance to meet him before the August 2nd primary, please do, and see for yourself!

    I am going to drop this link with an extreme red flag caution that this guy sounds really shady from just a few background clicks, and he seems cash-strapped. The closest thing to proof he offers is claiming his “long-time former colleagues from the Intelligence Community” told him. (Wiki says he was an “informant…”)

    Lots of sensational details given, but with a strong smell of Snake Oil Salesman…

    Dear AdRem, would you please review, and delete if this is too far out in left field?
