Fifth Redacted Name in Rosenstein’s Scope Memo Identified as Walid Phares…

An interesting new discovery amid revelations into the background motives of President Obama to weaponize the intelligence apparatus against his political opposition.

Today former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor Walid Phares identified himself as the fifth target in the August 2, 2017, Rosenstein scope memo.  [The redacted section above] With this admission/discovery a more interesting background makes sense.

(Via John Solomon) […] Phares is speaking out for the first time, suggesting that one of the motives of those who made the allegations and sustained the investigation was to hamper the early Trump presidency’s foreign policy goals, including the 45th president’s long-promised plan to cancel the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal.

“In my view, the push against the Trump campaign, and then the transition, and then the administration was on behalf of those who wanted to defend the Iran deal, to protect the interests of the Iran deal,” Phares told Just the News. (link)

.

As the story is told, the DOJ team led by Robert Mueller targeted Phares under the same FARA auspices they used against George Papadopoulos, Michael Flynn and Carter Page.  The accusation that Phares was an unregistered foreign lobbyist.

Both George Papadopoulos and Walid Phares were involved in connecting Egyptian leader Fattah Abdel al-Sisi with President Trump in New York for their first meeting.

(2016 meeting between candidate Donald Trump and President al-Sisi)

President al-Sisi was a key political nemisis of President Obama because of al-Sisi’s position against the Muslim Brotherhood, specifically against Mohammed Morsi, the brotherhood installed dictator of Egypt during the Islamist Spring.

President Obama supported the extremist regime of Morsi, and when the Egyptian people rose up behind General al-Sisi to remove Morsi, President Obama was furious.  Both President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry were consistently at odds with al-Sisi while they were in office.  However, there’s a lot of nuance because the Obama administration were very concerned about allowing the visibility of their support for the Brotherhood to surface.

CTH was very deep in the weeds during this entire timeframe in Egypt, long before candidate Donald Trump ever stepped into the picture.  This new admission by Walid Phares, a highly visible critic of the Brotherhood, now makes a ton of background activity make sense.

“The Obama administration obviously was not happy,” Phares said. “Not just because Donald Trump won the election, but they knew that he was about to change things. The most important point that they were concerned about, and that was not a secret, was the fact that Donald Trump said during the campaign that he will be withdrawing, he will be canceling, he used different terminology, the Iran deal. And the Iran deal was a major strategic achievement of the Obama administration. Definitely, they were not happy with that.”

“And Donald Trump, also during his campaign, was talking about changing, shifting alliances in the region,” he added. “He didn’t want the partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood … So it was a massive change in foreign policy.”

Way back in 2009, shortly after taking office, President Obama chose Cairo, Egypt, as the first destination to deliver a very specific foreign policy speech.  Within the speech Obama outlined a new approach, the U.S. would no longer take interventionist action to maintain stability against radical Islam.  As an outcome of that speech the “Arab Spring” began.

When President Obama ignited the “Islamist Spring” with his speech in Egypt, what he really articulated was a shift in U.S. foreign policy to support The Muslim Brotherhood. As an outcome of the shift in policy President Obama helped kill the regional zookeepers (Hosni Mubarek, Egypt; Ben Ali, Tunisia and eventually Khadaffi in Libya) and Obama unleashed the big cats… radical Islamists.

Political Islam, writ large, is represented by The Brotherhood.  Turkish President Recep Erdogan sees himself as the modern leader of political Islam using the Brotherhood to recreate the Ottoman Empire.

Ben Ali (Tunis), Hosni Mubarak (Egypt) and Khadaffi (Libya), were the first zookeepers removed.  Obama’s U.S. foreign policy supported Muslim Brotherhood replacements like Mohamed Morsi in Egypt.  However, Obama failed in the effort to remove Bashir Assad in Syria; as a result all extremist factions of the Brotherhood gathered to form ISIS.

Factions like al-Qaeda, al-Nusra and ISIS all fall under the umbrella of The Muslim Brotherhood.  The exiled Brotherhood leaders initially fled Egypt to Qatar until they were further driven-out by the Gulf Cooperation Council and ultimately given safe-harbor in Turkey, by Recep Erdogan.

As a gatekeeper between radical Islamist elements and Europe, President Erdogan holds the ultimate leverage and blackmail over his NATO allies.

Erdogan essentially holds the position of power because if Europe does not acquiesce to his demands he can open the gates and flood the EU with extremists.

Erdogan loved to play this power game against the EU and ultimately against the U.S.

President Obama embraced President Erdogan because ideologically the Obama administration and Erdogan both supported political Islam, The Muslim Brotherhood.

Erdogan’s regional arch nemesis has always been Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.  As a general al Sisi had to deal with the outcomes of Muslim Brotherhood extremism, and ultimately remove Mohamed Morsi from office.   President Sisi formed the Arab coalition that is now aligned with President Donald Trump against the radical elements of political Islam known as The Muslim Brotherhood.

The Trump-era U.S/Arab coalition includes Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Yemen.  Additionally the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are aligned against the radical elements within political Islam (The Brotherhood), and the U.S. is supporting the GCC coalition with self-defense military purchases.

This is where the Northern Syria border with Turkey comes into the picture.  Most of the neocon U.S. politicians wanted the U.S. military to continue the role of zookeepers to keep political Islam in check.  In essence the Lindsey Graham and John Bolton position was for the U.S. military to remain in Syria to keep the big cat cages closed.

Senator Graham’s policy viewpoint means no exit from the middle-east, ever.  This view is against the policy view of President Donald Trump.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan wanted to be the biggest cat in the zoo.  His goal was/is the recreation of the Ottoman Empire and his alignment with The Muslim Brotherhood is purposeful to achieve this goal.

Ultimately the largest stakeholder in this dynamic is Europe, because they stand the greatest risk if Erdogan is successful and then turns his assembly toward Europe.  Remember, Erdogan as President of Turkey is now the gatekeeper; and Erdogan is also a member of NATO.

Unfortunately Europe refused to defend itself; and the NATO alliance was/is too weak to kick Erdogan out. The EU weakness is visible in their position not take their own ISIS fighters back for trial and punishment; and instead, just like Lindsey Graham, the EU position demanded the U.S. to remain as perpetual zookeepers.

Making matters worse the EU refused to pay for the U.S. to remain as zookeepers, and the EU simultaneously fights the U.S. on trade agreements so they can continue their one-way financial benefits.  This hypocritical and one-sided position is part of the reason why President Trump has long held a view the NATO alliance does not benefit the U.S.

In 2019 Turkish President Erdogan was going to enter Syria regardless of what the EU, NATO or the U.S. said about it. Erdogan has the support of political Islam and ultimately that was what was important to his objectives.

With Europe refusing to stand-up to defend their own interests, President Trump trusted his instincts and took the bold approach to remove U.S. forces from the untenable position of guarding the peace between Syrian factions and Turkish elements.

Instead, President Trump openly supported the Arab coalition and the GCC that has been assembling a military coalition to protect itself from the Muslim Brotherhood. That is why President Trump was willing to support Saudi Arabia with more weapons and U.S. training while withdrawing troops from Syria where the U.S. was having to stand alone to protect the interests of Europeans who will not protect themselves.

In one regional area the U.S. supports and defends Israel, Egypt and Jordan. In the Southern region the U.S. supports the Gulf Cooperation Council (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Yemen, Bahrain and Qatar).

President Trump then uses economic weapons against Turkey to keep them in check and Trump warned Erdogan about prolonged entry into Syria and what he would do economically against them.  Erdogan made some noise in public about the threat, but he also realized President Trump was serious.  Erdogan realized he could quickly be a target like China; …and Trump doesn’t bluff; …and he’s done it before.

Meanwhile, President Trump continues to use economic weapons against the EU, pulls troops from Germany, and essentially leverages U.S. economic power against the EU for creating this NATO mess and refusing to defend themselves.

When considering a military option, President Trump reserves deployment of military weapons for allies that are: (A) willing to protect themselves, and (B) willing to pay for the support of the U.S. military protection.

[Payment can come directly (cash purchases), indirectly (benefits within trade agreements), or strategically (take action upon demand) the latter is how President Trump gets Saudi Arabia and OPEC to control their oil production valves.]

As a result of this strategic approach; and after President Trump removed U.S. forces from the border and gave Erdogan a taste of what he asked for (war); and after an initial week of severe battles where military casualties were too great to continue; the Turkish government and Kurdish opposition forces in Syria signed a peace agreement.

The border region has been stable ever since, and note U.S. forces are not involved.

We are out of one Syrian quagmire, the area is stable, President Trump’s approach worked; and, perhaps more importantly, Lindsey Graham was taught a lesson.

Quite remarkably Lindsey Graham admitted he was wrong and Trump was right…

However, conversely John Bolton, who relies on a career of blood-brokering, would not admit he was wrong and instead writes a ridiculous dossier.

    This article provides an unusually clear (although not unusual for Sundance) explanation of years of corrupt political leveraging and bribery plus geopolitical strategizing – all in the pursuit of money and power, either individually or for members of “controlling” cabals.

    In one short but succinct summary, we have a better explanation than reading 10 years of the Deep State / MSM’s deliberate and ongoing obfuscation of the facts.

    And the facts bring into increasingly sharp focus the motives behind the increasingly desperate and increasingly violent efforts of a corrupt cabal of politicians and people of wealth power and influence that cover multiple ideologies and political parties, who all want to remove President Trump from the Oval Office.

    This should heighten our collective resolve to keep the President in office, and to broaden the strength of his “mandate.”

      Sundance’s reporting and analysis was like nothing I’d seen or read. Context is key, and I’ve gotten used to having my mind blown whenever sundance covers a topic with a big picture post. And it clearly isn’t wingnut conspiracy theory. Evidence is given, public documents reveal strategies and motives in the words of the ruling class itself.

      So when sundance posts a review of topics predating my first click I always get an education on things I thought I already understood. It’s old news, after all, and we summarize for ourselves and move on. Now I’ve learned that with the Obama/Muslim Brotherhood/NATO dynamic, in the words of the Firesign Theater “Everything you know is wrong”. Well, maybe it’s not quite that bad, but very incomplete until now.

      I don’t know who could have the background, knowledge, and training it takes to assemble the puzzle pieces so completely and without contradictions or gaping holes that beg questions (I’m guessing prior government/IC), or the time to run a CTH and all the research it takes, but I’m thankful we have sundance.

    Follow the money and the policy changes under Trump and it’s obvious how upset the elite power players are and are outraged at the nerve of Trump doing as promised if elected. It is like nothing they could have believed or imagined.
    The nerve of an outsider winning the presidency and changing how politics and the methodical untangling web they have wove on behalf of their lust for money and power.
    I pray Trump has enough allies to stop Obama from revolving right back into power. We are witnessing a fight for this world and the stakes could not be higher.
    If Trump wins what new virus will be unleashed. I feel we are being sent a message if we want continued riots, inability to socially gather without threats of death; and eventual complete economic collapse then vote for Trump
    If you do as your told like all citizens under communist control do then the facade of the good old USA will return. BLM gets their millions and will scuttle away to irrelevance. Covid second wave won’t materialize. I truly believe we are being blackmailed And believe me no false threats we’ve seen what the Obama cabal is willing to do! (Notice the Supreme Court decisions gee I wonder who was threatened and would not be shocked if a dead pet or worse was used to get the point across they are not playing)!
    Did you ever think maybe Bolton and that Trump relative had no choice but to write books that Trumps enemies probably co-authored?
    Timing is everything and they are so desperate to get Trump out the Obama operation is using every and anything their sick brains can come up with (planting media crap about President Trump’s health another small example). The nerve to bring up physical fitness when Biden is brain dead.
    As soon as one crisis dies down the media is signaled what to throw at the masses next.
    This Covid bioweapon has been so exploited.
    Protests and riots were fine according to the left and Governor Whitmer nothing about Covid and how unsafe they were yet, myself and multiple family members got pleas to vote by mail In the November election. Asked to sign request with an already assigned number and send it back.
    This is the 3rd attempt! Coercive in the way this one was even written expressing safety concerns about not just yourself but others (gag me!).
    When you start thinking like what will they do next it’s downright scary.
    Obviously 🙄 Biden isn’t close to Trump in the real polls because if he were the chaos would not be escalating. Shameless, creeps that will use and abuse and kill anyone that possibly gets in their way.

      @Rebecca Bynum: ^^^^^^This!

      This is also part of why they continue to keep Flynn in legal limbo with the intent to keep him muzzled. For good reasons I might add because he indeed knows where all the bodies are buried.
      First – Hussein entered the white house accompanied by 26 muslim brotherhood members unable to pass background checks. They were strategically placed in position of power.

      Next – Long forgotten Hussein et al not only entered into the famous Iran deal but he additionally entered into a side deal that was given an exceptional classification that not one congress critter could access. Not one of them had the clearance to even look at that side deal. That deal is known in full by Mike Flynn and the reason to keep him tied up in courts to assure he remains gagged.
      That deal is about kickbacks for all those critters having participated in making the Iran deal happen. That includes among other Angela Merkel and others in her government receiving 85 million dollars per quarter as a reward using the Deutsche Bank to assist laundering and washing the monies Hussein allocated to Iran. There are others like UK politicians and many right here in the US like the DNC, Pelosi et al.

      Flynn knows all the detail about this secret and second side deal reached with Iran.

      Then there is the asylum placed Fetullah Gulen – brought to the US by the Clinton administration. He is a very rich man in the tune of 200 billion dollars of assets running Madrassa type school across America subsidized by Taxpayers without ever inspecting these schools about their curriculum and indoctrination. If that weren’t all teachers are imported and recruited solely from Turkey. American teachers need not apply.

      Here is where it get dicey: Fetullah Gulen – a radical Islamist – long ago planned a coup against Erdogan right from here in the US replacing Erdogan with himself as the ultimate caliph of Turkey.
      In other words Gulen was the one in charge of the coup to overthrow the government of Erdogan from his cushy estate in Pennsylvania. With the approval of the Hussein administration et al everyone looked the other way while Turkey turned into a shit show. Gulen nearly succeeded weren’t it for the 2016 election that ‘SHE’ lost.

      Flynn knows all the details about the coup run out of the US/PA. He planned during the Trump administration to deport Gulen turning him over to Turkey and put a stop to all of Gulen’s nefarious assistance bringing the muslim brotherhood into power across the middle east.

      Flynn is the biggest threat to Hussein/HRC/deep state knowing the super secret deal detail put away with such a high classification that not one congress critter is able to enter the SCIF and read it. The details in that are beyond damning. Exposing Gulen and deport him to his homeland to stop his worldwide terror activities was the goal.
      Gulen bragged about having the DNC in his back pocket via his donations making way for him to do whatever he pleases.

      It is of the utmost importance that LTG (ret) Mike Flynn is exonerated to free him up and taking down the deep state especially Hussein and HRC et al.

        Not convinced Gulen was the author of the aborted coup against Erdogan. My understanding was that the coup was led by military officers fearful of Turkey becoming yet another Islamic Republic (the army had intervened in politics post-Kemal), and Erdogan who through spies and traitors learned of the coup and let it proceed used it as an excuse to clean house of a former ally turned enemy (Erdogan is good at doing that to political allies. He’s an independent journalist’s worst nightmare).

        Besides if what you assert is so damning and needed to be known why hasn’t Flynn spilled the beans anyway and damn the personal consequences? He’s already been put through hell, what’s another hell at this point?

    many do not see the “ON PURPOSEfull” of it all. That so many are still so blind when the veil was lifted. Yes, I thank our President for so much, so much evil shown in our faces, but truthfully the veil was lifted during 0bama’s time, when we saw the craziness that was allowed, the trampling of our Constitution. My blood boils when I see a Biden sticker, they so hate Trump that they would vote fo a man that was really prejudiced himself, and is now suffering dementia??? You mean they do not care that who ever is the chosen” VP is actually the de facto President, or even the speaker??? My blood boils because I just cannot believe so many American citizens are blind to the stealing of the elections (Ballot harvesting, illegals, criminals voting, mail in voting, or even machines switching votes) and we allow all this garbage to continue…Why????

    Why Obama targeted Flynn

    • “Why Hillary’s record on Libya is even worse than you think” by Gen. Mike Flynn, FOX News Op-Ed, Oct. 6, 2016:

      “…The Islamists were able to pay for the weapons because Clinton had convinced Obama to grant full diplomatic recognition to the rebels, against the advice of State Department lawyers and the Secretary of Defense.

      As the Washington Post reported, this move “allowed the Libyans access to billions of dollars from Qaddafi’s frozen accounts.”

      These arms shipments are significant for several reasons. It led to the indictment of American arms dealer Marc Turi who was charged with selling weapons to Islamist militants in Libya through Qatar. The charges were dropped this week after Turi threatened to reveal emails showing Clinton had approved the sales.

      Here’s where it gets very sticky for Secretary Clinton. The rebel leaders were on the State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organization list. It is a direct violation of the law to provide material support for terrorist organizations under 18 U.S. Code 2339A & 2339B. Penalties for providing or attempting to provide material support to terrorism include imprisonment from 15 years to life.

      Nor is the Qatar connection insignificant. Qatar has donated anywhere from $1 to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation, and emails reveal members of the Qatari royal family were privileged with back channel meetings with Secretary Clinton at the State Department. While whipping up support for the Libya military campaign, Clinton told Arab leaders, “it’s important to me personally,” the Washington Post reported.

      Hillary Clinton’s prosecution of foreign policy in Libya crossed several lines: she showed extremely bad judgment by ignoring military and intelligence officials, she let personal interests conflict with U.S. foreign policy and, most importantly, she may have broken the law — again.

      Any one of these transgressions should disqualify her from holding any kind of leadership role in our government, let alone president of the United States. The last one qualifies Hillary Clinton for government housing, though not in the White House.”–Lt. General (Ret.) Michael T. Flynn spent 33 years as an intelligence officer. He served as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Senior Military Intelligence Officer in the Department of Defense.”

      Flynn was railroaded for Iran, too.

      It’s always Iran.

    So the Russia hoax was supposed to take out candidate Trump. And it was also to provide evidence to impeach Trump. And it was to cover up illegal spying on Trump, other GOP candidates, and a lot of Obama opponents as far back as 2012. Ant it was also to get rid of any Trump foreign policy advisor who knew about the dirty details of the Iran deal.

    That’s a lot to ask from a hoax.

    Translate that statement into “what’s he hiding behind that hair”?

    “…Obama outlined a new approach, the U.S. would no longer take interventionist action to maintain stability against radical Islam.”

    And so was born the inevitable Benghazi attack. Almost as if that was the plan. 0bama is a dangerous narcissist, and the cabal who own him, and the rest of his flying monkeys, are worse. I don’t know their ultimate goal(s), but whatever it is, I don’t think they’ll stop at anything to achieve it. World domination, sharia law, or a global marxist society, they have to destroy the US first. This is what we’re seeing in the news every day. President Trump truly is G-d sent, not perfect, but definitely doing G-d’s will. The 2020 election is possibly more critical than 2016. I expect the next few months will be even more insane…

      Ditto. I have long thought the same. We keep hearing that “Flynn knows where all the bodies are buried.” Well, what’s stopping him from sharing with someone who can do something about it, or at least someone who can leak it the way the dems always do, and get the public talking about it?
      Seems more like a personal vendetta against Flynn than a “keep the secrets hidden” conspiracy. Hope I’m wrong, and either way I hope Flynn sees justice soon.

    Under the guise of Arab Spring allot of US and UN Aid money was used by Hamas and Hezbollah to buy weapons and construct military positions as well as tunnels in their assault on Israel from Gaza and Syria. Further in 2016, there were members of one of the many “Royal Families” from the Gulf Coast bragging how they had funded over 1/2 of Hillary’s primary campaign. The “Old Regime” of GCC states had invested and paid allot of money to the Clintons, Obama and Uni-party members to sustain their position.

    Also, don’t forget that Obama removed the “US zoo keepers” from Iraq, against the advice of his Generals, who he removed soon after. This cleared the way for the Caliphate once the moves in Egypt and Syria failed.

    Further, it was Russian interference in Syria that upset Obama’s apple cart in that country as his democrat advisors with superior education failed to remember the 50+ year investment of Russia in the Assad Family, who had been loyal to the USSR and Russia. That is the underlying genesis of the Oil and Energy angle used to snare all the planted actors who were inserted into the Trump campaign.

    More evidence supporting SD’s assertions as wellas point directly at powers engaged by Obama against candidate Trump.

    Military Power versus Economic Power. President Trump clearly prefers the economic approach but with the selection of this approach the military complex is not being fed. Their feed, like so many pigs at a trough is money. With war or conflicts equipment needs to be replaced, people trained to use it. Sadly these sellers will provide their products of war to anyone with the money. And, this group of mercenaries needs people like Bolton and Graham to set the stage for war.

    Now, I would like to remind the reader of Hillary Clinton and her work at our State Department”. Clearly she was in the business of selling weapons to those who could buy. And, just as clearly she was taking kickbacks from the buyers and sellers.

    If you were a General on the take from the military complex would you want the wars to slow down or stop? Would you want someone in office like Clinton or Trump?

      The Clintons are like diarrhea; everything they touched they stained. And it was amazing how everybody they stained seemed to support them unswervingly, to the point of dying in jail. It’s because they knew how to graft. If everybody is getting a piece of the corruption pie, it’s in your interest to continue to get a piece and to defend everybody including yourself who’s getting it. Because incarceration sucks. It’s also very important to gain control of the watchdogs, both in government and in the Fourth Estate, as Obama did (except for Horowitz, who he basically neutered), because once they’re asleep or on the take there’s little you can’t do as long as you cover your tracks.
