    Saw a clip of Carlos Santana on tv virtue signalling about today’s immigration. Reminded me of the time he was on one of the morning tv shows back in the early eighties performing a song in their studio with his band. He was wearing a “Support the Contras” tee shirt. I remember he caught hell from the left after that performance and I guess he learned his lesson. I doubt he still has the tee shirt.

    Why is Halper e mailing Carter Page and asking if Scaramucci got job at the White House? Kind of explains why Scaramucci is showing up on TV saying Trump is mentally unstable and will quit in March 2920.

        A lot depends on when the Trump Transition Team hired Page.
        I think Page was used for the FISA application because he had contacts with Russia and was plausibly a suspect.
        On the other hand, he may have been paid to infiltrate the Trump Campaign to catch them in a conspiracy with Russia.
        But, with Halper asking about Scaramucci, that does indicate he was probably a plant. His behavior after
        hiring reflected adversely on President Trump. His employment gave him credibility as a Trump Supporter.
        Now he disses President Trump and has a perfect opportunity to plant a narrative that Trump is a deranged Roman Emperor.
        The Immunity Statute Halper’s lawyers raised is potent defense. There’s a really strong chance the CIA , FBI and State Department personnel will not be indicted, or convicted.
        As Sundance has pointed out. On e a counter intelligence investigation is started, agents of the government can deceive and lie, violate rights and do anything to gather evidence of criminal activity.

        IMHO, Carter Page is/was a traitor. He was an FBI stooge in previous FBI/Russian plots years before DJT announced he’d run for president. Unlike Papadopoulos, Page was never sued by SC Mueller and they knew he would not fight back because he was one of them.

        Halper, Downer, Mifsud, Steele, Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, Mueller, among others, all prostitutes at the exclusive service of high bidders. They all knew where the money was coming from but did’nt care. Their sole motive and ambition: just the money, please.

      Why was Carter Page continuing to communicate with Stefan Halper? Maybe because they were working together?

      As for Scaramucci, he’s just an ex-Wall Street a-hole who is upset that Trump booted him and he apparently hasn’t been able to find a job other than “pundit”. Just read that he’s working with Kristol to try to get Trump off of the ticket. (Like that’s gonna happen, Trump is the best thing that’s happened to the GOP ever!) What a shame that Trump chose him in the first place. Trump made a lot of bad picks early on, unfortunately.

    Attorney Uses Gateway Pundit Investigation on James Rybicki’s Testimony to Seek FBI Documentation in Seth Rich Case

    The Trump-Russia collusion narrative was a hoax that was directed by the Obama White House. An attorney attempting to obtain information from the FBI related to the origins of the ruse is using a Gateway Pundit revelation as support for his requests from the FBI and DOJ.
    Attorney Ty Clevenger is attempting to obtain information from the FBI and DOJ.

    To date his attempts have been almost futile.

    Now Clevenger is requesting that AG Barr get involved:

    In his most recent request, Clevenger cites a previous post on Chief of Staff James Rybicki’s testimony by Joe Hoft at the Gateway Pundit:

    The post referred to by Clevenger is this post – EXCLUSIVE: Transcripts Obtained of Former FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki Testifying Russia Conspiracy Came from Obama’s White House

    In this post we noted that –

    Transcripts obtained from the FBI in a request for information show that James Rybicki, the former FBI Chief of Staff under James Comey, testified that the Russia Conspiracy sham came from Obama’s White House in October 2016.
    We reported last week that businessman Ed Butowsky filed a lawsuit where he outed reporter Ellen Ratner as his source for information that Seth Rich and his brother provided WikiLeaks the DNC emails before the 2016 election, not Russia. This totally destroys the FBI and Mueller’s claims that Russians hacked the DNC to obtain these emails.

    We reported exclusive information that Butowsky and his attorney, Ty Clevenger, requested and obtained documents from the FBI related to their case.

    According to the duo, they obtained the transcript from former FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki where he states that the Obama White House was the entity that was pushing the Russia conspiracy as early as October 2016 –

    Rybicki was corrupt cop James Comey’s Chief of staff.

    Let’s hope and pray that AG Barr and his staff will address attorney Clevenger’s requests and America can find the truth.

              “(Aug. 15, 2019) — On Thursday night’s “Hannity,” Fox News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett told host Sean Hannity that former White House occupant Barack Obama was aware of the FBI and CIA’s counterintelligence probe and surveillance of members of the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.”

              “We already know that because of a text message from Strzok to Page saying, ‘The White House wants to know everything we’re doing on this,’” Jarrett responded. “…When you run a counterintelligence op, it’s for the benefit of the existing president, Barack Obama…but it’s more malevolent than that…” he continued.

              The dossier was used as “evidence” to procure four continuous surveillance warrants on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page between October 2016 and June 2017. Page was never charged with a crime, although several former Trump aides were charged and convicted of “process crimes.”

                  Yes, I do not know how long you have been reading here; however, many have known for some time that the twisted faked ‘intelligence’ was funneled through the President’s Daily Briefing in Obama’s Oval Office. Not to mention that a President and Attorney General (Loretta Lynch) can override the normal protocols for a FISA.

                  In the CTH archives are a few pointed interviews where the beans are spilled.

                  Connecting the dots of opening that Presidential Daily briefing to 35 agency heads was the barium ink flow for the fellow travelers and Kool-aid drinkers.

                  Evelyn Farkas and Susan Rice are two who fumbled andnexposed this tactic. Look for their interviews in SD’s archived presentations.

                  And Nunes saw the pieces of the unmasking and the results in the PDB when he witnessed the evidence in the SCIF.

                  It has taken a long time to start this ball of twine to unravel. Keep praying that all of this goes well for those of us who want justice.

      I submit that, when evaluating any DC creatures for swamp/not, the following may help.
      Firstly, put your emotions aside, as what you WANT to be, is irrelevant.
      Next, consider and apply these two old, tried and true maxims;

      ACTIONS speak louder than WORDS

      ONCE, is happenstance
      TWICE, coincidence
      THIRD time, enemy action.

      Whether its Barr, Mitch, Lindsey or any other, if you use this simple, straightforward approach, it will cut through the muck of the fetid swamp, and enable you to discern the true nature and intent of the creatures therein.

        If you review Epstein’s musings about having sex with underage girls, HE DID NOT SEE IT AS A CRIME. He rationalized that such sex was historically common. He saw current pedophile laws as archaic.

        It is sick because apparently most of his sexual perversion began WITHOUT CONSENT. He took advantage of naive girls who were lured into isolated situations not easy to run away from. He also let them know they would not be believed if they reported him. Forced sex is rape AT ANY AGE but that didn’t bother this sicko very much..

        What is surprising to me is why NONE of these girls did not TRY to record some of this perversion with their own cell phones or pocket voice recorders so they could have their own evidence to use against him. If what he did was so permanently devastating to them, you’d think they could plan a way to put him in prison where he belonged..

        Wicked people can rationalize anything. Thieves can rationalize their theft as cosmic justice for their sad plight. Burglars can laugh at a lack of security being the stupidity of the sucker.

            There are actually many parallels with the Michael Jackson case. Focusing in on grooming girls from unstable families and giving them cash and expensive items to further placate the families. Just looking at all of the amazing homes Epstein owned the girls would have been easily swayed by his enormous wealth and the chance to mingle with celebrities. Jackson also used money and fame.

        Katie;
        That, my dear requires a whole book to explain. Luckily, its readily available, as its the most published book in History.

        Short answer, the seduction of Satan is a gradual process. The father of lies avoids the scenario where the victim actually signs the paper, selling their soul. In retrospect, the victim often can’t point to the moment in time, where they crossed the line, and even if they CAN, at the time they crossed it, they didn’t consciously realise, as its a,slippery slope.
        Suffice to say, Epstien wasn’t just recruiting and grooming these girls, he was recruiting and grooming his real ‘victims’; the adults.
        Start with casual encounter, then meet to discuss ‘business’, and ‘read’the victim. Do they have a wayward eye, do they comment on the attractive waitress,..he certainly didn’t introduce himself and immediately ‘hit them up’, it was a sophisticated operation, I am sure.

    Do we finally get to see if Barr is on the side of the American People or just another Deep State Stooge?

    It seems Barr has the opportunity “An attorney attempting to obtain information from the FBI related to the origins of the ruse is using a Gateway Pundit revelation as support for his requests from the FBI and DOJ.”.

    How many times have we seen the corrupt FBI and DOJ block the truth from getting out. Will this be another case?

    The Trump-Russia collusion narrative was a hoax that was directed by the Obama White House. An attorney attempting to obtain information from the FBI related to the origins of the ruse is using a Gateway Pundit revelation as support for his requests from the FBI and DOJ.
    Attorney Ty Clevenger is attempting to obtain information from the FBI and DOJ.

    To date his attempts have been almost futile.

    Now Clevenger is requesting that AG Barr get involved:

    Transcripts obtained from the FBI in a request for information show that James Rybicki, the former FBI Chief of Staff under James Comey, testified that the Russia Conspiracy sham came from Obama’s White House in October 2016.
    We reported last week that businessman Ed Butowsky filed a lawsuit where he outed reporter Ellen Ratner as his source for information that Seth Rich and his brother provided WikiLeaks the DNC emails before the 2016 election, not Russia. This totally destroys the FBI and Mueller’s claims that Russians hacked the DNC to obtain these emails.
    a
    We reported exclusive information that Butowsky and his attorney, Ty Clevenger, requested and obtained documents from the FBI related to their case.

    According to the duo, they obtained the transcript from former FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki where he states that the Obama White House was the entity that was pushing the Russia conspiracy as early as October 2016 –

    Rybicki was corrupt cop James Comey’s Chief of staff.

    Let’s hope and pray that AG Barr and his staff will address attorney Clevenger’s requests and America can find the truth.

          Any Marine, and many familiar with self defence, know about a manuever generally refered to as the ‘throat chop’;

          If you want to incapacitate but NOT kill, you strike with the ‘web’ between thumb and forefinger DO NOT TRY THIS, it does require training!!
          Using the web applies LESS than the required 2 Lbs. per inch, but does incapacitate. You can see this in the movie “Ransom” with Mel Gibson.
          Gary Senise(?) uses the non-lethal, incapacitating version.
          For lethal, a throat chop using fist with fingers either partially or totally extended will easily break the bone.

          Victim is unable to scream, yell or even talk.
          Its not difficult to break the hyoid bone, even on a younger person, if you have the WILL.

          Throttling, either with hands leaves distinctive bruising.
          A ‘choke hold’, done correctly can render victim unconscious with minimal bruising.

          Nothing currently in the public domain can conclusively rule in or out, suicide or murder, and thats the point, isn’t it?

          Even IF Barr, the,I.G. and FBI investigators TRULY wanted to “get to the bottom of it”, I doubt they will find anything. And they probably already KNOW that.

From big tech censorship to very fake news hysterical drive by media lies and propaganda to a political party that tells us daily just how much they hate us and just how much they want us removed from society. We witness high crimes perpetrated at the highest level of government and nothing ever seem to come of it. So it’s reasonable to believe that the forces of evil got away with something…again..

        Is it possible that the “news” about the broken hyoid bone was deliberately planted for this very reaction? This was/is a high profile case involving powerful, well placed people. He died in what should have been a secure facility. He died after trying to kill himself on at least one other occasion. Then you have the story about “broken bones in his neck”. Then voila! Oh yes, it was indeed suicide after-all. I really don’t blame anyone for thinking/believing there is something rotting in Bangkok.

      Plus even if PDJT had said not one word yet, it is so relevant as the people who mean President Trump harm are “allegedly” clients of the “alleged” pedophile, the “allegedly” formerly-alive Epstein.

      Plus, it’s relevant JUST because President Trump is purposely teacing us all to gather up the the courage to SPEAK up if we don’t buy what someone else — media included — is saying; ESPECIALLY about things that involve so many government officials and others in power over us!

      As I’ve said before here, with Russia off the table now the Dems have to make 2020 about the Race Card (White Guilt, in particular). It’s their only hope. And the NYT is ready to start on that mission full force, beginning with the 1619 project (all about slavery).

      Not sure if the executive editor (Baquet) is explicitly partnering with the Dems here, in this mission, or just decided by himself that this is the way to go to try to defeat POTUS in 2020. Either way, it’s their best and only hope, provided the economy stays good before the election.

      In that leaked transcript, he also mentions race as it pertains to immigration. So the two big issues for the Dems headed to 2020 will be:

      1. Race Card (Trump racist, White Nationalism rising, etc)
      2. Immigrants (children as props) and border

      This is it. If the economy is good, they have nothing else to run on but this supposed “moral” argument that POTUS is unfit to lead the country because he’s supposedly making it racist, etc.

      This is their strategy. Glad that the NYT information leaked out, now everyone knows the truth for certain.

        And just to expound — the reason why NYT will start doing many stories on race, in general, is to get people thinking about everything in terms of race. That is, to stimulate White Guilt and Black Rage. That’s why Baquet means when he says we’re going to begin to do more coverage on the USA and race and so forth. To try to make race, itself, just a larger issue for 2020.

        This is what propaganda and propaganda preparations look like. The NYT, and the Dems, are going to run a sustained PR campaign on race from here until the election. Now that Russia and Mueller have failed to take down POTUS.

        Looks like we’re headed towards a Biden/Abrams ticket, if Biden can hold on (debatable). Abrams will be the Team Obama radical in the mix who can push the Race Card stuff to the moon during the campaign.

      Good old work a day, get paid, keep going people whose jobs were being outsourced by those elected to represent us. Anyway, once Trump is through, those money makers will adapt and plunder anew, but hopefully American jobs will be back.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/officials-say-at-least-20-texas-government-entities-targeted-in-coordinated-cyber-attack/ar-AAFWHYL

    Texas has sustained another attack.. A cyber attack on various fronts of the computer infrastructure..

    It has become evident that Texas is now in the crosshairs.. As goes Texas.. So goes the Union..

    Texas is the most powerful force in the Union. While the Yankees up North do hold nefarious powers of Destruction.. We hold a key element of Power as well..

    The lifeblood of the Nation that flows through pipelines throughout the Union.. It is Texas blood that flows outward and keeps the Nation running.. And that is what they are ultimately after..

    Make no mistake.

    Our core infrastructures need protection – Now.. Our Plants, our Pipelines, our People. Government is a field full of cockleburs.. By nature their reaction time is about as fast as a possum crossing the wagon trail.. (Sometimes that can be a good thing, so the People can squash it before it gets to the other side with the bill that it’s carrying..).

    That’s why it comes down to the Texan People themselves.. Always does..

    Possums have left the farm gate open.. And various critters are marching in.. From every border.. North and South.. So keep your eyes and ears open.. Everywhere you go.. In work and in play.. At our Plants.. And in the Fields..

    We have been infiltrated again by carpetbaggers and bad hombres.. They are now behind the wire..

    And have started their march across our physical and intellectual Territory with the goal of taking away our beloved Lone Star.. Our Texas Bounty..

    And our Cannons..

    Where it starts..

    And where it ends..

      As said in a comment above regarding the NYT and their leaked audio (going to talk heavily about race now in the USA), the only argument the Dems and the Media have now (provided the economy stays good) is the “moral” one Sullivan refers to here.

      Good luck with that.

      That is, there is no case to make on these grounds:

      Economy
      Foreign wars
      Foreign affairs
      National security
      Muh Russia
      Global standing of the USA
      USA prosperity
      Military readiness
      Etc

      And thus, you’re left with the moral argument of “Trump racist!” and “USA is becoming so white nationalist!”

      That’s it. That will be their argument.

    The WSJ report show on Fox is all aboard the recession hysteria bandwagon. No suprise, but no “fair and balanced” on that show.
