    Did anyone hear the Strzok-Page messages have uncovered a third person, as of recently?

    I might’ve dreamt it. That’s how dedicated I am to making America great again. I investigate in my sleep.

    Poo Poo Pah Doo!
    Stroke Struck was in on the Papadopealouse scheme. Brennen sent in Misfud to get the show on the road. The whip, is coming down, the chickens, are coming home, to roost. MSM is desperate to switch to Poopadupeus from the Pee Pee Papers and are running fast off the cliff. Trump is about to strike.

          Listen to the Dan Bongino clip below. He believes that Mifsud was a friendly and not a Russian spy and they (Muellar) does not want that known. Because Papadop meeting with Downer was the basis for the Muh Russia investigation. The Protecive Order does not allow the discovery to be made public. Please correct me if I err which is highly possible.

            This article goes great with Bongino clip. Book written by Misfud lawyer. Couple of snips.

            “Roh and his co-author Thierry Pastor, who also knows Mifsud, write in the book that, upon arriving in New York City with his family in October 2017, “one of the co-authors” was “fished from the passport control” line at John F. Kennedy airport while his family “was retained with armed police force.” (Photos posted by Roh’s wife on social media in October 2017 suggest she was visiting New York in late October.) He was then interrogated for “hours,” they write, by “a team of Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigating Russia-Gate.” The book alleges that he and his family were then “observed, followed, and taped, at every moment and every place in New York” by the FBI and that his family was assigned to “special rooms at the hotel” while security personnel “patrolled the corridors.”

            It is unclear whether Roh was actually surveilled after being interviewed—a spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment. The book further alleges that Mifsud is not a Russian spy but is actually “deeply embedded in the network of Western Intelligence Services.” Papadopoulos, too, is a “western intelligence operative,” the authors assert, who was “placed” in the Trump campaign by the FBI. In that sense, the book is similar to one written recently by another obscure player detained and questioned by Mueller’s team earlier this year: Ted Malloch, a controversial London-based academic with ties to Trump associates Roger Stone and Nigel Farage. In his book The Plot to Destroy Trump: How the Deep State Fabricated the Russia Dossier to Subvert the President, Malloch argues that the apparent covert intelligence activity connected to the Trump campaign was not Russian, but Western.”

            “Mifsud has virtually disappeared since his name was made public late last year. In their book, Roh and Pastor say that they last spoke to Mifsud by phone on January 13, 2018. Mifsud told them that he had been “set up,” according to the authors, and called Papadopoulos an “agent provocateur.” Mifsud had gone into hiding, he told them, after “the head of the Italian secret services contacted the President of LINK Campus, Vincenzo Scotti,” and recommended that Mifsud “disappear.” Since then, Mifsud “has been requested to hide, not to communicate, and not to speak to the press,” Roh and Pastor write. “He has been ‘put away’ and threatened to stay quiet.””

        SC protecting the documents. Can only be used by defense & their witnesses and can not be shared. Any forthcoming material, has to be signed for and accompanied with the court order. Proper destruction or containment when case is done.

        Lately , SC seems to be locking down all info. Gag orders, sealed docs, etc.
        Irony , they don’t want anything leaking out. I like to think , SD & others, are connecting too many dots. Lots of people awake and questioning stuff. Among other thoughts.

        Gadzooks…
        Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, who were both in their late 20s, quit their jobs in 2017 to embark on a trip around the world. Austin, a vegan, and Geoghegan, a vegetarian, decided that they’re were wasting their lives working.

        “I’ve grown tired of spending the best hours of my day in front of a glowing rectangle, of coloring the best years of my life in swaths of grey and beige,” Austin wrote on his blog before he quit. “I’ve missed too many sunsets while my back was turned. Too many thunderstorms went unwatched, too many gentle breezes unnoticed.”

        The couple documented their year-long journey on social media until it came to a tragic and gruesome end in Tajikistan, a country with a known terrorist presence.

        Austin and Geoghegan were riding their bikes in the country on July 29 when they were rammed by a car, according to CBS News. Five men got out of the car and stabbed them to death along with two other cyclists, one from Switzerland and the other from the Netherlands.

        Two days later, ISIS released a video showing the same men sitting in front of the black ISIS flag. They looked at the camera and vowed to kill “disbelievers,” according to The New York Times.

    Went to a Town Hall meeting tonight held by Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-1). There was about 130 people. Cache County is mostly students at the University, farmers, and retires (very Mormon). We have dairies and light industry. The Congressman was actually surprisingly supportive of the President despite the turnout of a lot of Anti-Trumpers. The Democrats I guess saw this as an opportunity to vent. Bishop will win reelection but he said he is retiring in 2020.

    Mark Levin’s rant on Hannity was … Excellent.

    Point by point takedown of the swampeteers and their security clearances and a dig at dumbass Dershowitz for good measure. Hannity didn’t interrupt.

    Ingraham show getting on my nerves. Much of the “Angle” was her shoving Enemedia TV clips down my throat. Hey thanks a lot Laura! To Ingraham and all the Fox hosts, we don’t watch them on purpose, look at the ratings! So how about an on-screen timer counting down the seconds until you roll the next of way too many Enemedia clips. That might work. It would allow us to prepare to click away from your stupid network to keep our sanity. God I wish their viewer metrics had detailed enough granularity to show when viewers click away.

    And now that “The Angle” is over, she brings in Richard Goodstein to supply even more (D)ummycrat propaganda! Hey thanks Laura for reminding me why I can barely stand you and Fox News. Off to find a car show, or maybe HGTV. Later!

My service writer (a MAGA supporter) told me that the Cadillac dealership’s General Manager changed the waiting suite TV to HGTV full-time because three near-physical confrontations involving customers have occurred in the past two months, all driven by politics. Formerly, the TV was tuned to Fox and CNN an equal number of hours each.

          I’ll bet the ranch (I have one) that all the antagonists/provocateurs were Dems who are at the end of their collective political rope.

      The coordinated and unhinged debunks remind me of the frenzy to stop people from reading the Wikileaks DNC emails and the daily vitriolic nonsense aimed at President Trump. Unsurprisingly, the owners of the #fakenews were behind all 3 attacks. Also unsurprisingly, the attacks only work on the uninformed. Last month Q pointed out that it would be very simple for the #fakenews to put this to rest. Just ask POTUS if its legit. People begged the “debunkers” to do just that. Oddly, every single one of them has refused this simple and obvious request. How very odd. Its almost like they know the truth and dont want to risk having their lie exposed. But carry on believing EVERY fake news outlet if you so desire. Its still a free country. BTW 80 hit pieces dropping within 24 hours? It must be because the #fakenews really, really cares that we arent mislead. Right? LMAO.
