    “Adam Schiff was essentially running an illegal spy operation against the White House, recruiting his staffers, having them recruit their whistleblowers, grooming them up, changing the rules so they could file their complaints, and then lying that they knew anything about the lunatic efforts to get President Trump impeached.

    Latest, from the San Francisco Examiner, exposes House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s choice of staffers, who it turns out had been two disgruntled deep-staters from the White House who had actually worked with the so-called ‘whistleblower’; Abigail Grace, who worked at the NSC until 2018, was hired in February, while Sean Misko, an NSC aide until 2017, joined Schiff’s committee staff in August, the same month the whistleblower submitted his complaint. See, they were just standing there, minding their own business when all this stuff happened. And everything that did happen was just … a coincidence.

    As facts continue to roll out, it’s getting more and more obvious that Schiff’s operation was to orchestrate this impeachment scenario all along, going into high gear with the flameout of the Mueller investigation.” ~ Monica Showalter over at American Thinker today


    DemocRATS … what a tangled web they weave
    when first they practice to deceive.

    Best read of the day.

    “Nothing breaks him. Not libel and not slander. Not accusations by the likes of John Brennan, who voted for communist Gus Hall to be president, that this most patriotic of Americans is a traitor. Not endless state initiatives to keep him off ballots. Not attacks on his wife, his daughter, even the public mocking of his youngest boy. He wakes up every day and does his job with determination and gusto. At press conferences with world leaders, as the Corrupt Journalist Corps strike at him with embarrassing questions while his foreign visitors look on awkwardly, he stands his ground. He does not give an inch. He hits back twice as hard as they do.”

        It’s like one can’t even compliment President Trump without first disparaging him and “clutching pearls”.

        He doesn’t make me “wince”. He doesn’t make me “uncomfortable”.

        AND – He’s almost all we have between us and tyranny.

      I hope that Barr and Durham hit back 10 times as hard. Someone need to revoke the free get-out-of-jail passes that the deep state law breakers believe that they are entitled to.

    I see Democrats are now planning to probe the meeting between Barr and Murdoch. Because of course they are. How great would it be if Barr let them dig into it, only to then have to admit under oath that the reason Shep left Fox was that he had been identified as one of the reporters with an inappropriate history of gifts/ leaks with FBI personnel?

    • Something along those lines was exactly what I thought when I first heard about the
      Barr / Murdoch meeting.

      That meeting plays right into all the paranoid misconceptions the left holds about the administration and may actually end up being yet another boomerang to the face of our disloyal opposition. . . . . and if the bait was deliberately laid by our AG . . . all the better.

      When your enemy is operating on pure ignorance & hate, predicting their reactions is easy.

        I would hope he is, but my overall feeling is that if Barr is investigating something himself instead of having someone do it for him, it should be something extremely large and so sensitive it had to be done in person. I mean really earth shaking.
        The other option is that Barr meeting with Murdoch was completely unrelated to anything and just happened to be the day before Shep left Fox.

        It was the former ambassador to Ukraine who was spying on the reporter Solomon earlier this year. That’s one of the reasons why she was fired by President Trump. Guessing that no one asked her about that during her recent grilling at The Hill.

    What Did John Brennan Secretly Gift Our Terror-Sponsoring Communist Enemies?
    By Humberto Fontova – October 12, 2019

    “(In Aug. 2015) an unmarked U.S. government plane landed at an airstrip in Havana, carrying…John Brennan, the director of the C.I.A. Brennan was there to meet with Alejandro Castro-Espin (Raul Castro’s son, the KGB-trained head of Cuba’s counterintelligence service, who authored a book titled “U.S.-Empire of Terror”) and discuss increasing intelligence cooperation between the two countries.

    I’ve lived for four years in a mountain valley in SW Utah. Nellis AFB jet pilots often fly low over our home for training missions — windows practically rattle. I can’t believe how many have been doing so in the past 48 hrs — far more frequent than normal. What’s going on?! Anyone in the Las Vegas area noticing the same thing? Something to do with the ME?

      There are supposedly very big USMC exercises currently at 29 Palms, CA and Camp Lejune. I was reading about this issue just this morning. IIRC, several thousand currently engaged in preparedness training – such that one participant supposedly expressed extreme surprise about. I’ve also seen reference to a possible major event of some sort around 10/19. Remains to be seen.

        10/18 is the supposed release of the FISA IG Report (and hopefully the date of Durham’s first indictments?).

        There WILL be unrest on 10/19 if all goes as above,

      Targeted, political prosecutions – “ Show me the man & I’ll find the crime” . . . . right out of the Stalin playbook.

    “As Turkey continues its offensive into territory controlled by the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the Islamic State has exploited the chaos to strike in the heart of the Kurdish-held areas of northern Syria.

    Earlier today, a car bomb was detonated on a busy street of Qamishli, which sits on the Turkish border in the extreme far northeastern reaches of Syria. The city is considered the capital of the de-facto autonomous area of northern Syria led by the Kurds.

    According to the Kurdish internal security forces, the Asayish, at least three people were killed and nine others wounded in the blast. Videos confirming the levels of destruction have been released online by the SDF and others.

    The Islamic State quickly took credit for the bombing, adding that “soldiers of the caliphate targeted a grouping of the PKK [referring to the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, or YPG] near the intelligence headquarters in Qamishli.”

    While over the past two days, the Islamic State has also claimed several attacks on SDF positions elsewhere. In Syria’s eastern region of Dayr al Zour, it claimed responsibility for multiple attacks on SDF positions in the villages of Theban, Sheheel, Daranj, and Al Busayrah, which all sit close to the city of Al Mayadin.

    The group also stated it was responsible for killing several Kurdish soldiers in the village of Al Karamah, southeast of Raqqa city, and in the village of Al Mansourah to the southwest.

      A new era of Information Operations (IO) is emerging due to disruptive technologies such as deepfakes – videos that are constructed to make a person appear to say or do something that they never said or did – and AI Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) that produce fully original faces, bodies, personas, and robust identities.2 Deepfakes and GANs are alarming to national security experts as they could trigger accidental escalation, undermine trust in authorities, and cause unforeseen havoc. This is amplified by content such as news, sports, and creative writing similarly being generated by AI/ML applications.

      This new era of IO has many ethical and moral implications for the Army. In the past, the Army has utilized industrial and early information age IO tools such as leaflets, open-air messaging, and cyber influence mechanisms to shape perceptions around the world. Today and moving forward in the Operational Environment, advances in technology create ethical questions such as: is it ethical or legal to use cyber or digital manipulations against populations of both U.S. allies and strategic competitors? Under what title or authority does the use of deepfakes and AI-
