Guilty Plea To Hide Real Spygate News 1 reply
A New York Times reporter who won a Pulitzer Prize for his role perpetrating the Russia collusion hoax was tasked with framing the news that a former top FBI lawyer was to plead guilty to deliberately fabricating evidence against a Donald Trump campaign affiliate targeted in the Russia probe. The resulting article is a case study in how to write propaganda. Adam Goldman broke, and cushioned, the news that former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith was to plead guilty to fabricating evidence in a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant application to spy on Trump campaign affiliate Carter Page.His job was to present the news as something other than an indictment of

Perhaps 70 percent of Trumpism remains a hodgepodge of Reaganism: strong defense, realist foreign policy, deregulation, smaller government, big deficits, tax cuts, energy growth, and stars-and-stripes traditionalism. But it is the other unorthodox 30 percent that excited his base, terrified conservative apostates, and won Trump the 2016 election by energizing between 4 million and 6 million voters in swing states who had either given up on Republicans, or on elections altogether. NeverTrumpers talk of Trump’s demise and their own resurrection as Phoenixes to rebirth the GOP. They have no idea that those who despise them had ensured their Beltway-preferred candidates could rarely win; nothing has changed since.
Troops After Germany’s NATO Spending
Failures 7 replies
United States Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, signed an agreement with his Polish counterpart in Warsaw, that will result in an increased American military presence in the country. The move came after President Donald Trump’s decision to draw down forces in Germany, over the country’s failures to meet its NATO spending requirements. The Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement was signed by Pompeo and Polish Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak. The agreement will give U.S. armed forces greater access to Polish military infrastructure and will create a framework for a sharing of costs between the two nations for the American military presence. The agreement will also lay the groundwork for a redeployment of American troops
Broken Law Deleting Experts’ Emails 4 replies
Swedish state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell may have broken the law by deleting emails from experts and government employees during the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak. Media law lawyer Jeanette Gustafsdotter said that if Tegnell had deleted emails containing content showing how public health decisions were made, the deletion could be a violation of the law. “If the emails contain content that is essential to the Public Health Agency or concerns decisions that are made, they should definitely be saved. If emails containing that content had been deleted, it is absolutely misconduct, and the principle of public access has been breached,” she told Aftonbladet.

Cologne University students have donated at least €8,500 from their student fees towards a far-left extremist Antifa group which is under observation by the German security services. The Cologne General Students’ Committee (AStA) has donated thousands of euros since at least 2010 to the Antifa AK extremist group, according to budget documents. Following the revelation, the local Green University group expressed their full support for Antifa. “Antifa AK is the student body, and the student body is Antifa!” the Green group wrote on Facebook. It added that Antifa AK was “a working group of the student body of the University of Cologne and thus an integral part of it”, Die Welt reports.
Knocked Out’ by ‘Dynamic Duo’
Biden, Harris 39 replies
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) called President Donald Trump a “bully,” adding that was “about to get knocked out” in the November election by the Biden-Harris ticket. Anchor Jake Tapper asked, “So let me ask you, President Trump and his campaign have been floating this false, completely false notion that Senator Harris, who was born in Oakland, California, in 1964, and is an American, may not be eligible to be vice president. Were you surprised when they started to do that?” Booker said, “This is something I think that many Americans know. I know for my family is when you have African-American women who are rising
SERIFOS—There’s no high life here, only family life, so I’ve been hitting the books about great Greeks of the past, and they sure make today’s bunch look puny. Philosophers, playwrights, statesmen, artists, poets, orators, sculptors—the ancients had them all. In 2,500 years they’ve never been equaled. I was once at the New York Met walking around the Greek wing and I ran into Henry Kissinger, whom I knew slightly. He asked me what ancient Athens’ population was. “About twenty to thirty thousand citizens,” I answered. He shook his head in amazement. “And they produced all this,” he said.
Clinesmith ‘Put My Very Life At Risk’ 15 replies
The actions of Kevin Clinesmith, the corrupt former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) lawyer who was charged in federal court on Friday with falsifying evidence, threatened the life of Carter Page, the former Naval officer and Trump campaign affiliate told The Federalist. The Department of Justice (DOJ) charged Clinesmith with deliberately fabricating evidence used to justify a federal warrant to spy on Page in 2017.(Snip)“After several years, Kevin Clinesmith is finally being held accountable and pleading guilty to committing a felony for his involvement in the plot to falsely portray me and by implication the Trump administration as traitors,” Page added.
Many people were quick to call Obama’s eulogy for John Lewis distasteful, and that it was. But there is a hazard of being too offended on Lewis’s behalf. Really, it is hard to imagine that a man who dedicated his life to revolutionary politics would object to the nation’s arch-progressive giving a fire-and-brimstone speech at his funeral. (Snip) Of course, what people really found outrageous was not Obama’s audacity, per se, but the audacity of his ideas. Obama dropped every pretense of republican tolerance and laid his cards bare. (Snip) his speech was nothing short of a manifesto for regime change.
Be Drafted 12 replies
The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday struck down a lower court’s ruling and declared that it is constitutional for only men to register for the draft, as reported by The Hill. A federal court in 2019 attempted to strike down the U.S. Supreme Court’s original ruling in 1981 that women could be excluded from registering with the Selective Service System since combat jobs at the time were made exclusively for men. In overturning the lower court’s ruling, the Fifth Circuit’s three-judge panel reasoned they did not have the authority to overrule a Supreme Court ruling due to its superiority over all other judicial institutions in the nation.
Beginning’ with ‘More to Come’ 9 replies
President Trump on Friday said that news of former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith’s plea deal with Department of Justice prosecutors was “just the beginning,” signaling that U.S. Attorney John Durham is zeroing in on other targets in his investigation. Clinesmith is expected to plead guilty in connection with his alteration of an exonerating email during the Crossfire Hurricane (CH) investigation, which targeted members of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, including foreign policy adviser Carter Page. In 2016, the CIA sent the email to CH investigators in response to their inquiry about the status of Page’s relationship with the CIA. Their response was not what the CH team was hoping for.

This should never happen to another president again, this hoax,” President Trump repeatedly says, referring to the Russia collusion hoax that very nearly destroyed his presidency. It’s unlikely that there are enough turncoats and Obama holdovers to mount another effort against a reelected President Trump. But how vulnerable would a new President Biden be to such an effort? Kamala Harris, former prosecutor of innocent people with different priorities and allies than Joe Biden, is uniquely positioned to lead a reprise of the same playbook used against President Trump. Only this time, Joe Biden would be far more vulnerable to such an attack.
