    FTA – House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler was confronted by a small group of angry voters for leading the Democratic Party’s sham impeachment. One voter warned Nadler that his shameless attempted coup will backfire on Democrats when President Trump wins the 2020 election in a landslide. Trump supporter Ben Bergquam and several other protesters shouted at Nadler as he wormed his way to the elevator in a bid to make a quick getaway after yesterday’s impeachment debate. “Shame on you, Chairman Nadler! Shame on you!” Bergquam yelled. “You’ve broken your oath! But keep doing it because the American people see through it. It’s going to work in President Trump’s favor. Keep it up!”

    FTA – Press gulps as Team Trump unleashes a full-sail 2020 re-election plan.
    Axios had a good list of “takeaways” from the briefing, which apparently the Trumpsters, led by Jared Kushner and Brad Parscale, were confident enough to let reporters hear about, which included the smart move to purge state organizations of NeverTrump clowns in leadership positions (who’d want to volunteer for Trump in states under such leadership?), a focus on “tiny” counties in the flyover disdained by leftists, which includes a plan to win Minnesota this time, a plan to encourage voters who sat home in the midterms because Trump’s name wasn’t on the ballot, a plan to win the black and Latino vote, a savvy use of impeachment to sell campaign merchandise and motivate voters, a plan to use tech techniques to capture data from rallies, and another plan to turn every Trump rally into “a four or five day event” in the locations where they happen.

    Both reports said the Trump campaign was swimming in money, nearly a hundred million dollars, most of it from those low-dollar donors Democrats otherwise claim they “own.”

    The only picture that came out from both reports is that Trump is running a helluva confident campaign and has a strong plan to do the Reagan-Mondale thing and win practically every state come November.

      Since I live in a state where Republican causes have been hampered by shiftless RINOs, purging these elements would be a great idea. Certainly couldn’t do a bit of harm as Republican candidates have been notoriously unsuccessful at the state level.

      Supporting the MAGA/KAG agenda is likely to be more effective especially when increasingly in sync with nation-wide efforts. IMO it would definitely provide benefit even in deep-blue regions.

    With all this talk of history, we should convince more conservatives to become historians, though. If only to prevent the liberal nutjobs from rewriting history on us.

    I very much hope that the governors of states that decided to give their electoral college delegates to the candidate that wins the national popular vote, instead of the candidate who wins their state, have to eat their soiled shoes after their state delegates end up voting for President Donald J. Trump.

    It is imperative that election fraud is effectively stamped out; especially in New York and California. Also to be banned should be the absurd notion that delegates can disenfranchise their state voters by voting their conscience instead of the will of the majority that elected them.

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/12/virginia-democrats-float-idea-of-using-national-guard-to-enforce-new-gun-control-laws/

    The “sanctuary city” mantra that liberals made has come back to show their utter hypocrisy. And irritate the living daylights out of them.

    I didn’t realize how far Second Amendment “sanctuary counties” had spread in Virginia.

    The article says “over 75 counties” in Va had become Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties. Apparently it’s at 76 currently……. out of 95 counties in the entire state. And now democrats want to use the National Guard to enforce the gun laws they want to pass!

    But of course, they will continue with their illegal immigrant sanctuary counties. Because after all, liberals get to pick and choose which laws they obey……..and enforce.

    Liberal democrats sure do hate it when conservatives use their own logic against them. And they really hate it when conservatives, or even democrats who are less liberal and armed, fully intend to REMAIN armed.

    76 out of 95 counties in the state…….and counting.

    No, I don’t live in Va. I’m just glad to see that it is not fully as democrat as the democrats want to say it is.

      i guess she also said this,

      On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Up,” former Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden defended her son, Hunter, by stating he “did nothing wrong, and that’s the bottom line.”

      Biden said, “I know my son. I know my son’s character. Hunter did nothing wrong, and that’s the bottom line.”

    The Court has authorized FBI to share with CIA and NSA raw PISA information

    An order that was originally issued in 2002 and extended in 2004 permits NSA

    terrorism-related targets, subject to Court-approved minimization procedures for those agencies.

    What if Schiff is able to get the phone numbers because of this “information acquired under Section 702 may be shared with Members of Congress or Congressional committees in connection with Congressional oversight of the program.”? The pieces seem to fit. In short, Schiff is on the Congressional oversight committee for intelligence.

    LAST JULY, NSA AND CIA DECIDED THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO FOLLOW MINIMIZATION PROCEDURES, AND JUDGE HOGAN IS COOL WITH THAT
    April 20, 2016 in FISA by emptywheel

    The Court understands that the government may have added these new provisions to clarify that information acquired under Section 702 may be shared with Members of Congress or Congressional committees in connection with Congressional oversight of the program. If so, the Court would urge the government to consider replacing these broadly-worded provisions with language that is narrowly tailored to that purpose.

    Interesting, the same information that the FBI can share with the CIA, PISA. It’s also interesting that this can from the SDNY field office. What does PISA contain? Say Phone numbers, perhaps?

    Beginning in March 2000, the government notified the Court that them had been dissemination of PISA information to criminal squads in the FBI’s New York field office, and to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Now York, without the required authorization of the Court as the”wall” in four or five FISA cases. Subsequently, the government filed a notice with the Court about its unauthorized dissemination’s.

    My perspective
    The Court has authorized FBI to share with CIA and NSA raw FISA information, reference below. FBI routinely shared “raw FISA information” on American citizens with “private contractors”. Sometime before 2016 the CIA private contractors could use the FBI access to those 702 queries.

    Among other things, the DOJ found that the FBI routinely shared “raw FISA information” on American citizens with “private contractors”…to paraphrase, the FBI took illegally sourced intelligence on American citizens (no warrants required) and shared it with random private citizens working at non-government firms.

    Guess who was a contractor for the CIA before she worked for Fusion GPS – Nellie Ohr and it also looks like the CIA and FBI made a deal sometime before 2016 where CIA private contractors could use the FBI access to those 702 queries and didn’t notify the head FISA Judge who said that was improper also.
