    In the press conference today President Trump said that we had to hold a hearing within 20 days (is that of entering the country or of being interdicted? Don”t know.)

    I know he spoke about hiring hundreds more immigration judges at one point. I’m thinking that we should hire thousands and thousands, have the hearing right after the invader is interdicted, fingerprinted, health check, whatever they do, the hearing is simply the very next step of the process. Do it before they are out the door. It is already more than we should be OBLIGED to give foreigners.

    Seriously, these Republican Senators going against the President on this one need to be taken out to the woodshed and beaten before it’s too late. The press is already referring to these renegade Republican senators as “the most powerful people in Washington.” It’s going to get worse.

    Note: Democrat President Barack Obama and President Bill Clinton

    In Part XI of our series we showed that AGT International CEO Mati Kochavi was so close to the Clintons that on September 23, 2010, he addressed the Clinton Global Initiative in New York.

    Kochavi discussed the Clinton efforts in Haiti and how AGT International could assist in crisis like the one in Haiti. President Bill Clinton was on stage with Kochavi. Also in attendance at the event was then Democrat President Barack Obama

    As noted in the first post of this series, candidate Trump noted that the people of Haiti don’t want the Clintons back. There are numerous accusations of the Clintons stealing from the people of Haiti while impersonating as philanthropists with their Clinton Foundation. The Clintons and AGT International were close. The actions by both parties before and after the event in New York were criminal as noted in our prior posts.

    Individuals in official positions in UK intelligence, such as Robert Hannigan—head of Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ, Britain’s equivalent of the National Security Agency)—partnered with former UK foreign intelligence members. Former MI6 head Sir Richard Dearlove, former Ambassador Sir Andrew Wood, and private UK intelligence firm Hakluyt all played a role.

    Christopher Steele, who authored the dossier on Trump, was an MI6 agent while the agency was headed by Sir Richard Dearlove. Steele retains close ties with Dearlove.

    Dearlove has ties to most of the parties mentioned. It was he who advised Steele and his business partner, Chris Burrows, to work with a top British government official to pass along information to the FBI in the fall of 2016. He also was a speaker at the July 2016 Cambridge symposium that Halper invited Carter Page to attend.

    Dearlove knows Halper through their mutual association at the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar. Dearlove also knows Sir Iain Lobban, a former head of GCHQ, who is an advisory board member at British strategic intelligence and advisory firm Hakluyt, which was founded by former MI6 members and retains close ties to UK intelligence services.

    I just dropped a line to President Trump telling him his proposal to dump thousands of illegal aliens in Sanctuary Cities was a great idea. Heck, many of them will gravitate to those cities anyway since they are the cities who won’t cooperate with I.C.E. and they’ll have a better chance of not being captured and deported.

    I remember mayors and governors complain about illegals being dropped off in their cities/state during Obama Administration and complaining how they weren’t notified nor given time to prepare (schools effects, charity help, health risks etc).

    How do they decide where they bus illegals they catch and release?

    Why can’t he send them to sanctuary cities?

    I would send them all to San Francisco until Pelosi felt the heat and anger from her in constituents. Maybe she would then agree to do something to control the border.

      The thing to remember is words having different meanings to the usurping government and our government. When Barry said All Americans would not see increase in medical care, he was referring to “Americans” being those that support him and the fundamentally changing of the country. Those who were impacted with increases were WeThePeople that are patriots which majority sit at income level that got hit hard. Patriots are not Americans to the usurpers and thus, he did not lie.

      And so, when when Crenshaw accused of not helping victims, one must ask who the victims are to each. To Usurper Omar the victims are the Muslims who have been persecuted since 9/11. To Sen Crenshaw the victims are All Americans impacted by the Muslim Terrorist Attack.

      President Trump should consider campaigning on rebuilding the World Trade Center and letting the Muslim World know that spot is NOT their victory holy ground.

      Just saying…

    This review of the Bill & Hillary tour experience is PRICELESS!!



    “Now that they’ve been dismissed, defanged and declawed by their own party, Bill and Hillary Clinton are doing what comes naturally: Hitting people up for money.

    Thursday night marked the kickoff, in New York City, of their national speaking tour. Billed as “a one-of-a-kind conversation with two individuals who have helped shape our world … [and who offer] remarkable insight into where we go from here,” the event simply underscored why Hillary lost: Over-promise, under-deliver, avoid accountability, and expect the masses to nonetheless be satisfied.

    My ticket, a third-row seat in the balcony, cost $210. This bought me 90 minutes of longtime Clinton lackey Paul Begala launching such softballs as:

    Is the two-state solution dead?
    What is happening to American politics?
    How did it feel to watch the bin Laden raid?
    Why are the Dems losing rural voters?
    How did you raise such an amazing daughter?

    I wish I were exaggerating.”

    RED HOT Joe DiGenova article today. A whopper!

    Joseph diGenova: James ‘Cardinal’ Comey — the man who destroyed the FBI


    “In the annals of U.S. law enforcement, no individual has reached such depths of disgrace as James “Cardinal” Comey. The “Cardinal” was a sobriquet that FBI agents used to denigrate their leader. As Deputy Attorney General, he was called “drama queen.” Known for his pomposity and self-regard, Comey cut a swath of arrogance unmatched in the histories of either of those illustrious organizations. He was the cult of personality. He surrounded himself with sycophants, people dedicated to his promotion and their advancement. The Bureau and the public became the losers.

    “The Comey Memos, a 15-page suicide note, reveal a deeply tortured and troubled man. They have a hausfrau sentimentality. But they are telling nonetheless….”

    “The American people are being treated to a dose of reality about Washington, D.C. Comey is a symptom. The disease is a voracious, rapacious government filled at high levels by people of immense ego and viciousness. Whether it is the IRS’s Lois Lerner, Comey, or the political thugs Obama installed at the highest echelons of the U.S. Department of Justice, the CIA, the DNI, and the NSC, they all share a common bond: allegiance to a cause unrelated to the Constitution, a cause borne of disdain for the average American and dedicated to power and its use and abuse against political “enemies.” ”

    “There now can be no doubt that there was a brazen plot by senior officials of the Obama Justice Department, FBI, CIA, NSC, and DNI to carry out two objectives: to illegally exonerate Hillary Clinton in the email server investigation; and if she lost the election, to frame Trump and his team for crimes they did not commit….”

    “They concocted a scheme to use foreign intelligence lackies to serve their interests. And in the course of that endeavor, they enlisted the likes of Christopher Steele, whose deposition in a London court as a defendant in a libel case is worth reading. He saw nothing. He knows nothing. What is all this about collusion, he testifies. What dossier? What facts? None of the dossier “facts” is verified, he says. …”

    “The evidence of illegal and unconstitutional abuse of law enforcement and intelligence community power and authority is clear. Grand jury subpoenas need to issue. These individuals have stolen 15 months of a new president’s tenure. They have needlessly thrown the country into spasms of doubt about the bona fides of an election. Cardinal Comey should get the first grand jury subpoena.”

    Interesting take on the Assange drama.

    “Pentagon Papers lawyer: The indictment of Assange is a snare and a delusion”


    Worth a read. Author asserts that that the U.S. may be playing with the extradition to bang him on espionage once he’s here, and if he’s convicted it would be bad for the First Amendment.

    “If Assange is found guilty of conspiring with Manning under this indictment, which incorporates the Espionage Act, this will be a blow to the First Amendment. It will criminalize the news-gathering process and will be a precedent for future cases concerning leaks. This will be particularly so since substantially all leaks in the future will be computer-generated.”

      the biggest problem, IMHO, is those doing the investigating think the joke PDJT told during a campaign speech about Russia releasing Hillary’s missing emails was a dog whistle for hacking. Shifty Schiff repeated this canard yesterday with no pushback from Little Chrissy Wallace.


  27. concerned3 says:

    The Three Men; London is in Coverup Mode
    From left to right: Bill Binney, Julian Assange, and Craig Murray.

    As far as is known, there are just three men who have conclusive evidence that the Russians did NOT hack the DNC in 2016, and are willing to put it forward. Even after the collapse of the “Russia collusion” hoax, when Mueller’s investigation was unable to find any collusion, the still-surviving lie that Russia hacked the DNC and gave the hacked data to WikiLeaks, is still central to London’s intention to pit the U.S. against Russia.

    One of the three is former NSA Technical Director William Binney, who has marshalled all the known forensic evidence to show that the data was taken over the DNC’s own network rather than through the internet, so that it was an insider “leak” or the like, rather than a hack. Then-CIA Director Pompeo met with Binney at President Trump’s request in 2017, but never followed up that interview, and continued to insist that Russia had hacked the DNC. Binney was never interviewed by investigators subsequently, or asked to testify before Congress.

    Binney’s remains the only known investigation based on forensic evidence, in large part because the FBI inexplicably failed to impound the DNC servers after the alleged hack, as President Trump has often pointed out.

    The second is witness is Britain’s former Ambassador Craig Murray, a friend of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Murray told the London Guardian on Dec. 10, 2016, that the CIA claim that Russia hacked the DNC emails was “bullshit.” “I know who leaked them,” he added. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian, and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.” Murray still maintains this today, but has never been called to testify to investigators or to Congress.

    The third is Assange himself, who told then-Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) a year ago that “I have physical proof that the Russians did not give me this…” Rohrabacher wanted to discuss this with President Trump, but he was sidelined. And neither Congress more investigators have interviewed Assange either. Assange went on to tell the Congressman, “I have physical proof that I would be very happy to provide once I can leave the Ecuadorian embassy without being arrested.”

    But wait–wasn’t he just dragged out of that embassy by British police and arrested this morning? Couldn’t this have something to do with it?

    Indeed it does. After the collapse of Russiagate and the beginning of Attorney General Barr’s ongoing investigation of that hoax and its origins, London is in deep coverup mode. Even though the U.S. has asked that Assange be extradited to face a hokey “conspiracy” charge in the Eastern District of Virginia, the operation to force him out of asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy has British, not U.S. fingerprints all over it. Still, many U.S. hard-liners are passionate against Assange; at a minimum, London hopes to muddy the waters to keep the truth from coming out. Let’s get it out!

    UK, Australia Have Reason to Be Concerned About Declassification
    Foreign intel agencies played crucial role in creation of Russia-collusion narrative

    President Donald Trump last week received phone calls from two allies saying, “Please, can we talk.” Those “allies” were almost certainly the UK and Australia.

    The high-level calls were most likely coordinated and related entirely to Trump’s recent declassification order. The message appears to have been simple and direct. As Trump noted, “key Allies called to ask not to release.”

    These calls should be receiving far more attention than they have been getting.

    Trump’s initial declassification order was related to the release of three sets of documents related to the FBI’s Russia investigation: specifically 21 pages from the June 2017 Carter Page FISA renewal, a series of FBI interviews with former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, and FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with the Page FISA applications.

    Judge Napolitano Returns to Fox News, Stands by His Report Obama Used British Intel to Spy on Trump (VIDEO)
    by Cristina Laila March 29, 2017
    He’s back! Judge Napolitano was pulled from Fox News after he reported that the Obama administration was using British Intelligence (GCHQ) to spy on Trump and his team.

    Well, one of our favorite judges from Fox News is back after a little time off and he stands by his claims

    Bill Hemmer: ‘Judge, nice to see you. You’ve had a few quiet days. You put out a story about 10 days ago. You said you were confident in the story that you reported here um in the past month. Do you still stand by it?”

    Judge Nap: “Yes, I do and the sources stand by it and the American public needs to know more about this rather than less because a lot of the government surveillance authorities will expire in the fall…”

    Judge Napolitano is one of the few speaking the truth today on Fox News. He’s a powerful voice. He speaks with conviction and stands by his word! We want more of Judge Nap, not less!

    Judicial Watch-Friday update. Clinton emails/cover uncovered with FOIA docs


  41. concerned3 says:

    Question: Could the last 2 years have been avoided had Fox News believed and supported Judge Napolitano?

    British intelligence agency GCHQ provided officials within the CIA with information on the Trump campaign as early as late 2015, The Guardian reported in April 2017. Then-head of GCHQ Robert Hannigan also provided Brennan with sensitive information on the Trump campaign on a “director level” in the summer of 2016.

    Reverse Targeting: Brennan admitted in an Aug. 17, 2018, interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that the CIA had obtained the communications of Americans associated with the Trump campaign through what appears to have been the use of reverse targeting. “We call it incidental collection in terms of CIA’s foreign intelligence collection authorities,” Brennan said.

    We know from the nearly two-year-long, exhaustive investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller that there was never any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” the Mueller report reads, as quoted in a summary letter to Congress by Barr.

    This raises the question, why did the CIA, FBI, and foreign governments engage in spying on the political campaign of a presidential candidate if there never was any evidence?

    And why was Hillary Clinton’s campaign, alongside the Democratic National Committee, funding the creation and spread of the so-called Steele dossier—which contained the false allegations that Trump colluded with Russia—into the FBI, DOJ, State Department, Congress, and U.S. media organizations?

    Barr was right when he said: “I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal.”

    It poses a threat to the very integrity of our election system and our freedoms. This scandal deserves to be thoroughly investigated to make sure it never happens again.
