    Alan Dershowitz says that he thinks Mueller’s final report will be “devastating” for President Trump.

    He also says that the report is unlikely to result in criminal charges.

    WTF, Dershowitz? Is he privy to information being leaked?

    Just remember THIS: Dershowitz was flying with convicted PEDOPHILE Jeffrey Epstein (and Bill Clinton) on the ‘Lolita Express.’

    Hey all – update from my source (Federal Prosecutor who works for John Huber).

    I had a very brief chat with him today. I asked him what his thoughts were on Mr. Huber testifying before the House Oversight committee on Dec. 5. To my surprise he actually had no idea this was occurring. When I mentioned that he was to testify about the investigation into the Clinton Foundation, he was shocked but in an almost awestruck-with-excitement kind of way.

    He has had 1-on-1 time with Mr. Huber recently but says that Huber is still extraordinarily busy and is not in the office nearly as much as usual. He said that Huber is typically jovial and light-hearted but lately has been worn out, and that he’s been “burning the candle at both ends.”

    My source remarked that he met with one of Huber’s deputies recently and that there is among these people a general distaste for investigating the FBI for wrongdoing. The impression that I got from this is that the people working the case are pretty disheartened by it (in the sense that the FBI should conduct themselves in a manner above reproach not requiring this kind of stuff). They want it to be finished soon.

    My source indicated that he’s actually quite closer to Mr. Huber than I previously thought, but Huber is extraordinarily tight-lipped about everything he’s doing – even among close friends and associates – and will not reveal a single thing about anything. My source has a meeting with him in the near future and will be getting back to me with any other insights. I’ll share them here.

    It sounds like there won’t be any specific info coming from my source about this other than anecdotes and insights. I’m actually encouraged by that in that the DOJ/etc are running this investigation *by the book* and are being so secretive about it that *nothing* is leaking out.

      chojun;
      Appreciate your posts, and continue with updates, please.
      That being said, “fool me once”, etc. and “won’t be fooled again”. ACTIONS speek louder than words. Having eaten crow once, after long posting ‘defences’ of Sessions and the plan, I will GLADLY eat crow, again, should Huber be anything other than a head fake, but UNTIL I see something concrete, I won’t allow myself to get caught up in wishful thinking.

      Its just the way it is, at this point….

        I totally agree. Unfortunately for me I subscribed to the Stealth Sessions theory and I didn’t fully understand at the time the implications of his recusal which meant in a basic sense that Sessions in reality had no ability to influence anything at all related to Mueller’s investigation.

        I will say that based on events that are even happening today, the dam holding back everything against the Clintons is appearing to break.

        Trump has a very strategic mind… consider the strategy in this tweet, knowing that Huber is testifying on the 5th.

    Latest from FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds (she speaks Turkish and was over there when all of this was going on)
    Breaking News- Khashoggi Case: A Massive PsyOp Concocted by CIA-MI6-Mossad
    https://www.newsbud.com/2018/11/24/breaking-news-khashoggi-case-a-massive-psyop-concocted-by-cia-mi6-mossad/

    Yesterday I broke the news on the bombshell revelations by Former Director of the Turkish Military Intelligence Services, General Ismail Hakki Pekin, via Oda TV Live Coverage on Nov 21. General Pekin, an insider with a long career in Intelligence who has high-level contacts and sources within MI6, CIA and Mossad, made the following statements (Summary Translation) while risking severe backlash from the government here in Turkey:
    • There has been intense behind the scenes competition between the UK and US over ARAMCO and it’s coming IPO, scheduled for 2020, via either the London or New York Stock Exchange (Many billions of dollars’ worth)
    • Jamal Khashoggi was/is very close to certain ARAMCO Board Members, and has been a prize sought by both US and UK players due to his connections
    • UK (MI6) concocted the plans (or fakery) to kidnap Khashoggi
    • The CIA and Mossad got involved in this UK plot
    • The Fiancé was some sort of honeytrap most likely connected to MI6, or possibly the CIA, and is not who “they” claim she is- not genuine
    • They may have selected Turkey as a secondary target to damage its reputation- With the US aiming to set up a Kurdish State in Northern Syria and the possibility of ending its alliance with Turkey

      Twitter and other social media more typically associated with phones, seem to be abuzz with instructions, locations and organizers for massive yellow vest protests to hit every city and town in Germany soon.

      One wonders whether to rejoice, or feel this is a planned tactic to bring down federal governments by long gamers who must have predicted the rise of the real resistance to the communist-islamic revolution.

      In any case, prepare your telescopes to look to the East of France. It could get interesting soon.

      Apparently also in Belgium (Charleroi).
      Dutch correspondent notes: I don’t think it has much to do with communists or islamists. These are people struggling to make ends meet, and are being screwed over by their banker-king.
      It’s not often talked about, but there are many people living in poverty in France, especially up north. And Charleroi is probably the poorest town in Belgium.

      You’ve brought up some fundamental questions to think about.

      Is addiction a criminal act? An overdose? Or is it a physical condition requiring treatment?

      Is cannabis simply for stoners, or is it medicine? Is it both? Is it neither?

      Portugal’s out-of-the-box approach to addressing these questions have set the country on a path to wellness for many with addictions. Mexico’s AMLO is also a problem-solver and has suggested that Mexico take a different approach to its drug problems. I see a global movement away from jail for users – replaced instead with life coaches. And some paint therapy.

      Even tho I don’t know the details of Massachusetts cannabis legalization – I’m willing to bet it wasn’t “because prohibition is dangerous”.

      It was most likely because “medical reasons” and/or “recreational reasons”. I’m further willing to bet that language describing it with medical and/or recreational reasoning was on the ballot, and in its the longer version. And that was what voters voted on.

      Thus I’m willing to bet she’s set up a strawman with her claim that it was “because prohibition is dangerous”. Then she threatens to knock down her strawman (with flimsy “logic”). That’s not even mentioning the strawman itself is flimsy and easy-to-knock-down strawman to begin with, no matter who swipes at it or how flimsy their logc.

      Pathetic.

      Granted, I could be wrong and it was actually “because prohibition is dangerous”. In that case it would be my lost bet. Still willing to make the bet though.

        Ironic story, or perhaps not, YOU decide:
        Even many ‘freinds of Bill’ (AA members) don’t know the WHOLE story, about Bill, the founder of AA.

        Late 50’s, early 60’s, he was an INCORRIGIBLE alcoholic. He wanted to quit, had tried many times, unsuccessfully.

        Then he heard about some drug trials, being conducted by researchers from Harvard. Tjey were advertising for incorrigble alcoholics, for an experimental treatment, so he thought what habe I got to lose (buty addiction).
        He spent sevrral sessions, with a councelor, just talking; about his life, his addiction to alcohol, etc. Then he had a ‘special” session; the councelor gave him a medication, and they spent 8 hours; low music in the background, dimmed lights, and they talked.

        Bill felt a spiritual connection to the universe, and talked about things he’d never talked about, with anyone. The anger he harbored, at thos he felt had wronged him,…the guilt he felt, at those HE had wronged, and, by the end of the session, he forgave his trespassers, and forgave himself.

        And, he NEVER had another drink. In fact 98% of those who went thru this experimental treatment, even when contacted 25 years later, had remained sober!

        Bill very much wanted to share this miracle treatment with the world, knowing first hand what a transformational experience it could be, for 10’s of millions of people.

        Unfortunately, soon after his experience, the medication he and the others were given was BANNED, as having NO medical value.

        And so, Bill started AA, trying, WITHOUT the medication, to recreate for members, his experience with the 12 step program, which includes admitting you are helpless to control your addiction, and asking a higher power to intervene, forgiving others for the wrongs they habe done you, forgiving yourself for wrongs you have done, etc.

        Still, despite 70 years of research into addiction, pharmocologically and psychologically, NOTHING comes close to tje success of a 12 step program, although the success rate isn’t anything LIKE the 98% of the experimental program Bill and the others went thru.

        The substance he was given, ….
        Was LSD.
        Think about what a problem addiction is, for our society. And, recently researchers have had great success, using LSD to treat post traumatic stress disorder,…Outside the U.S., because it remains under a BAN, even for research, in the U.S.

    I took the train (Amtrak) today from the west San Fernando Valley through downtown LA and down to San Juan Capistrano. This train goes through most of industrial LA and OC businesses and one has a view of many of the freight trains being assembled to leave the LA basin. It is a major connecting point for products, (cars, consumer goods, industrial etc) either being imported or exported. The last time I took this train was just before the 2016 election. It was amazing to me the following:

    1) Containers loaded on trains for cross country delivery were beyond count, I have never seen so many loaded and being delivered on trains and routes across the country. Many more than in 2016.

    2) The passenger train I rode in was loaded, and I mean filled to capacity, with people who were unable to find a seat sitting in the isle and by the exit door.

    3) Traffic on the freeways next to the rails was jam packed. I am glad I took the train! And;

    4) Best of all the graffiti, while just as thick and plentiful as in 2016, had no “F… Trump” or other four-letter disgusting depictions/sayings that are negative of our President or the US overall that were prevalent in 2016. (Alright I agree the best are 1 through 3 above). But it seems the idle loafers who may be responsible for the 2016 Trump disparagement, have recognized where their bread is buttered, been deported, or maybe they found a job and have been able to afford new and bright paints and painted over the old propaganda. –Anyway it was a fun trip!

    The train, the best and low stress way to travel! –And priced reasonable too!

      My understanding, admitting I didn’t watch the video.
      The broad law on immigration, grants total authority to the President to detirmine who does or doesn’t come into the country, for any reason or no reason.

      Below that, there is a law regarding asylum claims, which says, paraphrasing, ANY time, ANY where, if an alien expresses a ‘credible fear’ of return to their country of origin, they must be given a hearing. REGARDLESS of whether they enter thru POE, across the border illegally, overstay visa, doesn’t matter.

      Congress wrote both laws, and either Congress needs to clarify, or the Courts will have to.
      Personally, I think its clear, the first law has greater weight; If the President can ban any class or group, for any reason or no reason, in the interest of Natl. Security, than he can detirmine the refugee asylum system, as implemented, is being ‘gamed’, its a thrrat to Natl. Security, and implement reasonable changes.
      But, Congress is unlikely to fix it, so it will be up to SCOTUS, and I djon’t trust Roberts, as far as I can throw my 10 ton truck!

      • If the courts do their job, they’ll simply strike the part of the immigration statute that deals with -where- and under what circumstances asylum can be declared, which will allow the President to move forward with regulating the asylum process in such a way that asylum can only be applied for at a POE (not too much to ask, i mean really) and that frivolous claims will be thrown out promptly.

      Assange, 47, faces a US court hearing on Tuesday and needs to meet with his legal team to prepare, WikiLeaks reported.

      Ecuador removed a UK ambassador who had been negotiating Assange’s fate at its London embassy this week – sparking fears the country is preparing to boot Assange out of the embassy and hand him over to police.

      ‘The hearing is on Tuesday in the national security court complex at Alexandria, Virginia,’ WikiLeaks tweeted, adding it is to ‘remove the secrecy order on the US charges against him.’

      A US court document leaked in November finally revealed the US has already placed secret charges on Assange. ”
