    Why? Why does Tom Fitton always have to sue to get FOIA documents.

    In this case it is the DOJ he is suing and last time I looked that was run by AG Barr.

    Has anyone notice not only are the white hats having to fight the DS but they continue to have to go to court to get any cooperation when it comes to FOIA documents from the FIB (Run by Wray) DOJ (Run by Barr) and now The State Dept (Run by Pompeo)

    Why is it so hard to get support from the people who work for PT?

    I guess the DS IS EVERYWHERE!

    I’m afraid you are right. They only employ and promote their own. At least now millions are aware of that fact. Without a president Trump they would have continued to fool the whole country instead of only half of it.

          lp, read about the GEMS program software in George Soros backed voting machines.

          They can be preloaded with broken down vote percentages to make sure the desired outcome is what the client wants. For any precinct from any place in the world. If you can gain access to a voting database, you can change the preclusion.

          The inevitable thing is that votes are reduced to percentages, since that is the only real way to make an outcome work with math. So, unlike one vote equallimg 1, If you want 52% of the voters to ‘vote’ for the candidate of your choice, votes are broken down into fractions and that is what is loaded into the machine. No poll monitor would ever know. In other words, if audited, the crime is self-evident within but not from without. Look for it. It is called Magic Fractions. They hide in plain sight.

      then arrrest Brennen, as the number 1 player in this deception – send him away for ever. and allow the institutions to save face. All countries that colluded make a public statement apologizing for this, and stating their new partnership through buying our items and trade deals.

    Barr Ends All Conspiracy Theories Forever By Saying Epstein Died Via A Series Of Coincidences
    Nov 22, 2019

    View at Medium.com

    In an interview with Associated Press, US Attorney General William Barr put all conspiracy theories to rest once and for all by assuring the world that alleged sex trafficker and alleged billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s death was simply the result of a very, very, very long series of unfortunate coincidences.

    “I can understand people who immediately, whose minds went to sort of the worst-case scenario because it was a perfect storm of screw-ups,” Barr told AP on Thursday.

    This perfect storm of unlucky oopsies include Epstein being taken off suicide watch not long after a previous suicide attempt and shortly before his successful suicide, suggestions that the first attempt may have actually been an assault via attempted strangulation inflicted by someone else, two security guards simultaneously falling asleep on the job when they were supposed to be checking on Epstein, one of those guards not even being an actual security guard, security footage of two cameras outside Epstein’s cell being unusable due to a mysterious technical glitch, at least eight Bureau of Prisons officials knowing Epstein wasn’t meant to be left alone in his cell and leaving him alone in his cell anyway, Epstein’s cellmate being transferred out of their shared space the day before Epstein’s death, Epstein signing a will two days before his death, unexplained injuries on Epstein’s wrists and shoulder reported by his family after the autopsy, and a forensic expert who examined Epstein’s body claiming that his injuries were more consistent with homicide than suicide.

    “The attorney general also sought to dampen conspiracy theories by people who have questioned whether Epstein really took his own life, saying the evidence proves Epstein killed himself,” AP reports.

    ***********“He added that he personally reviewed security footage that confirmed that no one entered the area where Epstein was housed on the night he died.”***********

    Well if reporting that he’s reviewed footage which we were previously told didn’t exist isn’t enough to dampen those kooky conspiracy theories, I don’t know what is.

    So there you have it. The US government says that an intelligence asset with damning information on many powerful individuals did in fact kill himself due to an admittedly bizarre and wildly unlikely series of strange coincidences. I for one have no more questions. Checkmate, conspiracy theorists.

    “Mr. Epstein’s death in August at a federal detention center in Manhattan set off a rash of unfounded conspiracy theories on social media that were picked up and repeated by high-profile figures, including Mayor Bill de Blasio and former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani. No matter their ideology, the refrain of the theories was the same: Something did not add up,” says The New York Times in its report Barr’s statements.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. It’s a completely unfounded conspiracy theory to believe that someone with ties to powerful institutions and individuals might be murdered in a way that was made to look like a suicide. We don’t live in a world where opaque organizations do evil things in secret, we live in a world where the government is always our friend and the TV would never lie to us. I’m glad these comments made by Barr (whose father in another strange coincidence gave Epstein his first job) have at long last struck a fatal blow to anyone who would doubt the beneficent hand of our beloved institutions.

    It’s hard to imagine what more the US government and its allied political/media class could possibly do to quell conspiracy theories that now have Hollywood celebrities clamoring for government internet censorship. I guess if they really, really wanted to dampen conspiracy theories, there are a few more extremely drastic steps that could be taken. Steps like not lying all the time. And maybe not hiding immense amounts of information about what the most powerful institutions in the world are doing behind thick walls of government opacity. And maybe cease promoting conspiracies themselves, as with Russiagate. And maybe stop secretly doing depraved things. And maybe stop engaging in conspiracies.

    Pretty sure Barr’s assurances will be enough to do the trick, though.

    El Paso County jail inmates have been letting themselves out of cells, sheriff says
    Oct 25, 2019

    https://gazette.com/news/el-paso-county-jail-inmates-have-been-letting-themselves-out/article_b4f4b58e-f766-11e9-9ab2-9fecac56383b.html

    El Paso County jail inmates know how to unlock doors inside the facility, and they regularly free themselves from cells, according to the sheriff.

    “Inmates are able to defeat door locks on a routine basis,” Sheriff Bill Elder told county commissioners at a recent meeting. “So we’re looking at processes on how to shore that up.”

    Those who have left their confines have assaulted deputies on “several” occasions, a few of which resulted in injuries, sheriff’s spokeswoman Jacqueline Kirby said Friday in an email to The Gazette.

    But the problem isn’t new. Inmates were using a similar trick under the watch of former Sheriff Terry Maketa.

    In 2008, Maketa shared with county commissioners a video of inmates using a plastic comb to prevent a door lock from securing.

    ***********The problem had come to light after an inmate was beaten in his cell while others in the facility were supposed to be on lockdown.************

    More than a decade ago, the county spent roughly $100,000 replacing locks and some doors and door jambs on many of the jail’s cells.

      How Secure Are Those Cell Doors?
      May 24, 2012

      http://correctionalnews.com/2012/05/24/how-secure-are-those-cell-doors/

      Intro:

      Detention cell doors are among the simplest and most reliable security feature of jails and prisons. The basic design of a swinging cell door lock has changed very little in the past century. Their familiarity and consistent operation have made them a part of the prison landscape that operators rarely think about.

      But, that may be a big mistake.

      Security locks are definitely not part of the landscape that inmates ignore. They often understand the operation and vulnerabilities of locks better than the officers that supervise them. Compromised locks are in almost every detention facility.

      Epstein was taken off of suicide watch TWELVE DAYS before he committed suicide. That was plenty of time for him to pretend like he was better and convince the prison that he was no longer a suicide risk.

      Inmate suicides happen despite efforts to prevent them. If someone wants badly to commit suicide, they’ll probably succeed.

      wikipedia: Pretrial detainees tend to have higher rates of suicide than other inmates, with about a third of all prison suicides occurring within the first week of custody.

      Epstein was 66, probably propped up by viagra, testosterone, and God knows what else. In prison he would not have access to that stuff. And he wouldn’t have access to girls either. He knew he wasn’t going to have the easy sentence or partial jailing like he’d had in Florida. It’s easy to understand why the guy offed himself, and the world is better because he did it.

      Keep in mind too that he had already been through one arrest-plea-conviction-incarceration and he didn’t rat out any of his pedo clients. Nobody would have expected him to do it this time either.

        Epstein didn’t rat anyone out last time because the Clintonistas in the DOJ got him a sweetheart deal.

        The current POTUS would have expected him to sing like a bird to avoid jail time.

        Jeffrey either wanted to sing and was killed, or he chose suicide over a long prison sentence.

        Either way, his death prevented his victims from getting their day in court. He deprived them of real justice. That is a shame.

    There is a trend popping up and the trend is about surfacing infighting within trump coalition. It is time to think about these news stories and involved parties should also consider the implications:
    1) Situation with Rudy. There is a discussion what will Rudy do if Trump starts talking unfavorably about him if he becomes a burden.
    2) Situation with Flynn. The interview with powell did not sound very clear to me and might implicate VP knowlingly or unknowingly disclosing info about flynn conversation. This has again the potential to create friction within.
    3) Situation with NSA/ODNI/IG-intelligince. Who is to trust in the key intelligence positions? if none, can alternatives be found or they could do more hard from within these positions.
    4) Situation with Nunes in Ukraine. Needs clarification or it could again weaken GOP case.
    5) Less important one but worth mentioning. kellyane and her husband situation is not looking good. Its reported that trump talked about it and also not good in my opinion.
    6) The story about pardon and defense dept. Needs to be sorted out.
    7) IG horowitch report if do nothing, then it is epic fail.

    Finally republicans have failed to distinguish the issue about political opponent and corruption involving anyone (including political opponent). Also, crowdsrtrike issue needs to be supported with more direct evidence.

    Report: DOJ Watchdog Addresses At Least One Of The Conspiracy Theories About Joseph Mifsud In Upcoming Report

    The Justice Department inspector general concluded that Joseph Mifsud was not working for the FBI when he made contact with former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos in 2016.
    It is unclear whether the report addresses the other conspiracy theory about Mifsud: that he was a Russian agent.
    Mifsud told Papadopoulos during a meeting in London on April 26, 2016 that he had learned that the Russian government had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton in the form of “thousands” of her emails.
    The special counsel’s team ultimately found no evidence that Papadopoulos or anyone else on the Trump team conspired with Russia to obtain Clinton’s emails

      “The Justice Department inspector general concluded that Joseph Mifsud was not working for the FBI when he made contact with former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos in 2016.”

      Joseph Mifsud and Stefen Halber work hand in glove to frame their respective targets.

      Mifsud nailed Papadop for Mueller. Halper nailed Page for FISA support.

      Know this: neither Mifsud nor Halper would lift a finger without getting paid.

      Paid by the country who wanted their work product. In this case, the USA wanted something done and the USA was going to pay

      Stephen Halper was paid out of the US Treasury for his work product. Mifsud was paid out of the US treasury to produce his stuff.

      You can spin your wheels for a long time trying to trace what US government Agency actually forked over the cash to (and therefore “worked for”) these two. But before you go down that road, understand that, as clandestine operators, they require anonymity. Which means they cannot be identified in anyone’s budget.

      I don’t understand how this is ultimately relevant. If Mifsud was “Western Intelligence”, then he was at least indirectly working for the CIA… and more likely one of the other services who were in cahoots with the CIA… and it sounds likely the Italians who seem to be up to their eyeballs in #Russiagate.

      This was a Brennan operation, and he and his co-conspirators, who found more than willing support overseas. This was a global operation. London, Rome, Kyiv, D.C. Folks like Mifsud don’t get paystubs in the mail, FFS. And folks like Halper may be “on the books”… but it depends on which “books” you’re looking at. Durham poking around ONA isn’t to express Pre-Holiday pleasantries, I’m sure. He doesn’t seem like the “Pre-Holdays” type.
