    https://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/419907-prosecutors-ramping-up-probe-into-foreign-lobbying-by-firms-linked-to

    T”he prosecutors have been interviewing witnesses about the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs over the past several weeks, the AP reported, citing individuals familiar with the investigation.

    The investigation stems from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Mueller handed it off to prosecutors in Manhattan because the issue fell outside the scope of his own probe, according to the AP.

    The Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs are believed to be “Company A” and “Company B” as referenced in a grand jury indictment against Manafort and his deputy associate Richard Gates last year. “

    So heart-warming to see President 41’s WWII military service emphasized and applauded as he’s being laid to rest. Every mention, however, reminds me how the WWII Memorial was instantly/spitefully/needlessly closed off during the 2013 gov shutdown.

  6. The Clinton Laundromat: Parallels Between SpyGate & Uranium One

      A snippet from your link:

      “….why are all these Canadian charities being used to donate to the Clinton Foundation? …..- in Canada, there is no legal obligation for charities to report the source of donations. So when Congress asked Frank Giustra in 2015, to reveal the identity of donors whose money had then been donated to the Clinton Foundation via his Canadian charities, he refused.

      How many donors are we talking about? 10? 20? 100?

      No. 1,100 donors……to the Clinton Foundation, whose money was channeled through the Giustra controlled ‘charities’, were hidden…..

      ….See how it works? Once the donor is hidden, the source of the money is, as well. It just becomes a charitable donation to the Clinton Foundation, from Canada, that happens to coincide with a favor from Clinton cronies in Congress or, when she was Secretary of State, Hillary herself.

      Once ‘inside’ the Clinton Foundation, it’s relatively straightforward to mix the funds with legitimate donations – and then disburse it to the Clintons…”

          That is not much when compared to the billionaires and criminal enterprises they are laundering money for. The Clinton family will be expendable once they are no more use for money laundering.

          A worse fate than prison would be to have all those ill-gotten gains stripped from them. People that really know the Clinton’s say that is what HRC fears most -to be poor.

          So, they were giving HIV patients sugar pills, basically. This is just an example, there are many others. The way the whole organisation is structured, makes it difficult to detirmine WHO donated, how much they donated (listing them all in ranges, say “between 2 and 10 million”, and even makes it difficult to detirmine exactly WHAT ‘Charity projects’they funded, or how much was spent.

          Most estimates put the Clintons’ net worth in the $250 million range, so $150 million would be a low guess. But I don’t understand the math you use to come up with the money in and around them must have been in the 10’s of billions? Is there some formula you are using or just assuming that it would be 10x or more what their worth is?

Seom for this project, some for that project, and a little tiny bit for us. Do that a million times, and before you know it you’re worth $150 million. So what’s the fraction? I don’t know. But I do know that 1% of a very large number is a large number. 10% “cut” would be too obvious… outrageous. Unless your name is Capone or Genovese or something. So something in the small single digits…

            If they “pocketed” 1% for their substantial troubles, then working backward the overall cash flow would have been 150 mil / .01 = 15 billion.

    Huawei Technologies Co. is China’s biggest tech company by revenue, with sales 60 percent greater than those of the runner-up, JD.com Inc. Huawei is one of the world’s biggest producers of telecommunications networking equipment, despite a de facto ban that prevents America’s four principal wireless carriers—AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint—from using its gear. The company also makes an ever-growing share of the world’s smartphones. These two factors have rendered it terrifying enough to many American policymakers that they’re willing to leave Broadcom the loser in a bigger game.

    Excerpt:

    “The question long has lingered about when the doubts inside the FBI first surfaced about the allegations in the Steele dossier.

    Sources tell me the email chain provides the most direct evidence the bureau, and possibly the DOJ, had reasons to doubt the Steele dossier before the FISA warrant was secured.

    Sources say that the specifics of the email chain remain classified, but its general sentiments about the Steele dossier and the media contacts have been discussed in non-classified settings.

    “If these documents are released, the American public will have clear and convincing evidence to see the FISA warrant that escalated the Russia probe just before Election Day was flawed and the judges (were) misled,” one knowledgeable source told me.

    Congressional investigators also have growing evidence that some evidence inserted into the fourth and final application for the FISA — a document signed by current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — was suspect.”

  11. I just watched Bush Jr’s eulogy to his father and I thought it was really wonderful. I am no fan of the Bush family, but clearly Senior was a great father and husband and loved by his family.

    As to the comments above about how there was some insult to Trump in there, that’s ridiculous. I didn’t hear anything about Trump in that eulogy; I really don’t think the Bush family is thinking about anyone right now except their father/grandfather, etc and their family.

    I did feel sorry for Melania having to sit next to the person who is attempting to overthrow her husband’s presidency. Also, does Bill Clinton have false teeth? And Hillary just looked so angry and unpleasant during the entire event. It must be horrible to be her.

      So, Broward County recieves 10’s of millions of federal dollars, to the school system, Sheriffs dept, and Prosecutors, for basically doing nothing, as does Palm Beach County, IIRC.

      The program consists of NOT arresting, and NOT incarcerating young men ‘of color’, for committing felonies. Instead they are sent to diversion classes, with no consequence for not attending.

      So, $ for doing NOTHING.
      And, its these same 2 counties that, unlike all other counties in Florida, have election irregularities.
      Cue suspiscious cat. There were actually over 100 counties, nation wide, participating in the Promise program.
      (If you can call doing nothing, participating).
      Would be interesting to get a list, and compare it with a list of voting districts where there were high suspicion of vote rigging.
      Perhaps the Promise program was;

      “If we funnel LOTS of $ to your County, you PROMISE to rig the election, to favor Democrats?”

    Serious Question. How did Jeff Sessions get invited to the funeral service?
    “Sessions was an Assistant United States Attorney in the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama beginning in 1975. In 1981, President Reagan nominated him to be the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama. The Senate confirmed him and he held that position for 12 years until Bill Clinton’s Attorney General, Janet Reno, asked for his resignation.”
    So he spent 4 years under President Bush 41, but that seating is VERY limited. He had to be invited by either the Bush Family or as a representative of the administration. The latter being not very likely. (See photo 46 of 59)

    China caught stealing Boeing satellite technology

    Workers at a Boeing Co. plant in Los Angeles are nearing completion of a new satellite, which uses restricted technology relied on by the U.S. military. It was ordered by a local startup that seeks to improve web access in Africa.

    In reality, the satellite is being funded by Chinese state money, according to corporate records, court documents and people close to the project.

    About $200 million flowed to the satellite project from a state-owned Chinese financial firm in a complex deal that used offshore companies to channel China’s money to Boeing. It included a discussion with a longtime friend of China’s president, said the startup’s founders. (…)

    The American founders of the startup, Emil Youssefzadeh and Umar Javed, said they told Boeing from the outset over two years ago that Chinese government money was financing their satellite order. Later, they warned Boeing the Chinese financiers were actively interfering in the project. (…)

    Grassley said Wednesday he will be supporting Trump.

    He says anyone is welcome to campaign in Iowa, which holds the first in the nation caucus, “but Chuck Grassley won’t be appearing with them.”

        Absolutely. I have seen Rogers on FBN many times during the Trump transition period. He was on the Transition team. He is the real deal and is very pro-Trump! He was just on with Dobbs not too long ago. Here is his bio:

    Now that the public funeral ceremony is over, it is back to business as usual in the DC swamp. Thankfully Sundance hasn’t gone ape over the dem’s love for dead Republicans by any posting funeral stories.

    The country may have set aside a day to remember a past president but sadly the sick msm have used the funeral to continue their attacks on the Trump Presidency. If politicians can set aside their differences for one day surely the msm should be able to too. Sadly that didn’t happen today.

      I think now that the 180-year old rule barring congress critters from wearing hats has been (or will be) rescinded to allow the hijab to be worn, Louie should show up in a 10-gallon Stetson! And spurs.

    I wanted to bring to CTH attention that the DOJ has just made it’s first arrest for the Panama Papers. I believe that this is the lynch pin of the Swamp and the Globalists.

    The DOJ website: “announced today the unsealing of an indictment charging RAMSES OWENS, DIRK BRAUER, RICHARD GAFFEY, and HARALD JOACHIM VON DER GOLTZ, with wire fraud, tax fraud, money laundering, and other offenses…”

    Connections everywhere:

    BRAUER, who worked as an investment manager for Mossfon Asset Management,

    It’s hard to not feel for the man GHWB. And his sons. GWB does have a humbling way about him – his eulogy was heart-wrenching. In 1988, I’d hoped GHWB would be the Bush that was always described in sterling terms – a man who would put America first. I remember being befuddled about his Thousand Points of Light speech and thinking ‘hmmm, this must be some idealism from his UN days – sounds harmless – if a little weird’. Never in a million years would I have guessed what was coming … even in spite of being a little wary of his being a CIA man. I was a believer back then.

    GHWB took the baton from Reagan and led us by the hand into globalism. Where might we be today had we not gone down the path of New World Order that GHWB so gushingly spoke of, using his famous warm and fuzzy phrases? Imagine if we hadn’t had any of these wars for which the Gulf War became the prototype? Not to mention the structural economic damage inflicted from NAFTA? Whatever Bush’s intentions, for certain the intelligence agencies and other institutions of that era did not object one iota to his agenda!

    Now, 30 years later, Americans had the wisdom to elect President Trump to reverse this globalist course and return America to its roots. Unlike GHWB, PT is meeting institutional resistance every inch of the way! That single pew with PT and the 3 previous presidents was like a force field of opposing energies, past and future.

    Today reminds us how good our future can be. PT took an early leave (we all know why) as the old guard hob-nobbed and cemented their connections. Isn’t it wonderful to know we have a President intent on doing the work of America First?

      Nice article, mostly good behavior all around.

      I’d pick a nit with that notion about “his father’s famous call for a “kinder, gentler America” and how that needs to come back.”

      What with open borders, illegals on welfare, Somali refugees on welfare, calls for “free college” and “free everything” …

      … the hard-working and responsible Americans are well on the way to being “kinder”-ed and “gentler”-ed out of all their cash.

      So there’s that.

    It just occurred to me that 50 years from now the only person in DC that people will remember will be the President’s. Few people can name a Supreme Court Justice, House member, Cabinet member, General, or Senator during the Johnson Administration. Most people would remember LBJ and Ladybird. The Media are all vying to be Walter Cronkite. But that ain’t gonna happen. So President Trump and Melania will be the only people that will live in posterity. Everyone else is wasting their time unless they seek God.
