Rank and Vile – DOJ Inspector General Identifies 93 Percent Non-Compliance Within FISA Review – Issues So Bad IG Presents Interim Report Before Reviewing Details…


After the DOJ Offfice of Inspector General (OIG), Michael Horowitz, presented his December 2019 findings of the FISA application used against U.S person Carter Page, the gross deficiencies and intentional fraud were so extensive the IG said he was going to review a sample of FISA applications to identify if the fraud and abuse was widespread.

The OIG began reviewing FISA applications from eight field offices (the proverbial “rank and file”).  The OIG selected 29 FISA applications from those field offices over the period of October 2014 to September 2019.  Additionally, every field office and the DOJ-NSD generate internal “Accuracy Reviews”, or self-checks on FISA applications; so the OIG inspected 42 of the accuracy review FISA files to determine if they were compliant.

The results were so bad the IG produced an interim memorandum to the DOJ and FBI [pdf link here].  Within the 17-page-memo the IG notifies Attorney General Bill Barr and FBI Director Chris Wray that all of the claimed FISA processes, in every field office, are grossly deficient, and in most cases there is zero compliance with FISA standards.  The IG memorandum is presented before the IG even looks at the specifics of the non-compliance.

Below is the report/memorandum.  Additionally I am summarizing the stunning top-lines identified by the IG memo:

  • The IG reviewed 29 FISA applications, surveillance warrants, used against U.S. persons.
  • The 29 FISA applications were from eight different field offices.
  • The FISA applications were from Oct/2014 through Sept/2019.
  • All of the FISA applications reviewed were approved by the FISA court.

The ‘Woods File’ is the mandatory FBI evidence file that contains the documentary proof to verify all statements against U.S. persons that are contained in the FISA application.  Remember, this is a secret court, the FISA applications result in secret surveillance and wiretaps against U.S. persons outside the fourth amendment.

♦ Within the 29 FISA applications reviewed, four were completely missing the Woods File.  Meaning there was zero supportive evidence for any of the FBI claims against U.S. persons underpinning the FISA application.  [ie. The FBI just made stuff up]

♦ Of the remaining 25 FISA applications, 100% of them, all of them, were materially deficient on the woods file requirement; and the average number of deficiencies per file was 20.  Meaning an average of twenty direct statements against the target, supporting the purpose of the FISA application, sworn by the FBI affiant, were unsubstantiated.  [The low was 5, the high was 63, the average per file was 20]

♦ Half of the FISA applications reviewed used Confidential Human Sources (CHS’s).  The memo outlines that “many” of applications containing CHS claims had no supportive documentation attesting to the dependability of the CHS.

♦ Two of the 25 FISA applications reviewed had renewals; meaning the FISA applications were renewed to extended surveillance, wiretaps, etc. beyond the initial 90-days.  None of the renewals had any re-verification.  Both FISAs that used renewals were not compliant.

But wait… it gets worse.

The DOJ and FBI have an internal self-check mechanism.  The DOJ National Security Division (DOJ-NSD) chief counsel, and the chief counsel for every FBI field office are required to conduct an “Accuracy Review” of selected FISA applications.  One per field office (25 to 30 field offices),which are also sent to DOJ-NSD (main justice) for general counsel inspection.

Keep in mind, these “accuracy reviews” are known in advance, so the FBI has all the time in the world to select the best FISA file for review.  Additionally, I surmise the OIG wanted to inspect the “accuracy review” FISA’s because they would show the best light on the overall system itself.  The OIG was looking for the best, most compliant, product to report on.

However, when the OIG inspected 42 of these Accuracy Reviews, the IG identified that only three of them had accurately assembled documents (Woods File) supporting the application.  The error rate within the files self-checked was over 93%.

So the best FBI files are selected to undergo the FBI and DOJ-NSD accuracy review.  The accuracy review takes place by FBI legal counsel and DOJ-NSD legal counsel.  However, the IG finds that only three FBI applications in the accuracy reviews were compliant.

The error rate in the files undertaken by the internal accuracy review was over 93% (3 compliant out of 42 reviewed).  These were the FISA files with the greatest possibility of being accurate.  Let that sink in…

Here’s the OIG Report/Memorandum:

According to Rasmussen 32% Say Coronavirus Has Thrown Them or A Family Member Out of Work


Tuesday, March 24, 2020

One-third of Americans say they or someone in their close family is now unemployed thanks to the coronavirus. A whopping nine-out-of-10 are worried about the virus hitting them in the pocketbook.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 32% of American Adults say they or someone in their immediate family has lost their job because of the coronavirus. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

For those under the age of 40, 41% say they or someone in their immediate family is now out of work due to the virus.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of all Americans have been forced to cancel travel plans because of the virus threat.

Ninety-one percent (91%) are concerned about the financial impact of the coronavirus, with 67% who are Very Concerned.

(Want a free daily e-mail update? If it’s in the news, it’s in our polls). Rasmussen Reports updates are also available on Twitter or Facebook.

The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted March 19 and 22, 2020 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Voters are closely divided over how the government has responded so far to the coronavirus threat, but, even in a time of national emergency, it appears that party affiliation overrides all.

Men and women report near equal impact on their immediate families and show similar levels of financial concern.

Blacks are more likely than whites and other minority Americans to be Very Concerned about the financial impact of the coronavirus. Democrats share this level of concern more than Republicans and those not affiliated with either major party.

Entrepreneurs have been harder hit than government workers and those employed in the private sector.

The more one earns, the less likely they are to report themselves or an immediate family member losing their job due to the virus. But higher-income adults are more likely to be Very Concerned about their finances.

 

 

 

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Says He Will Not Run for President….


First, the question is technically silly.  New York Governor Andrew Cuomo cannot “run for president” because all of the deadlines have passed, ballots printed, and the officialarchitecture of the DNC election process would not support a “run for president” etc.

However, beyond the false question is the strong likelihood Gov. Andrew Cuomo is being positioned to be recruited as the consensus nominee at the DNC convention.  That scheme is 100% on track to be executed; and that plan would involve Andrew Cuomo saying exactly what he is saying in this interview; and then later he is recruited by the DNC club leadership and super-delegates.  [Oh, and the club can pull this off… easily.]

.

Cuomo cannot hint he would be open to such a possibility because the democrat voters, who don’t understand private political club rules, may suddenly realize their precious “democracy”, vis-a-vis an election process, is really just a hall of mirrors.

March 22, 2020 –  The ‘good cop bad cop’ routine with deBlasio just seemed a little too scripted… Then the framework of a usefully constructed contrast narrative started to become clear… Then, as if on cue, all national broadcasts started being interrupted for maximum exposure; again a little odd.

A deep, very deep, connection to Bloomberg reappeared as a little flashing light in the corner of the picture… Then the Murdoch’s started to shape the landscape; curiosity piqued… Followed by positioning that seems a little too centrally located in the political sphere.. Then Hannity and Bannon started singing his praises. Well, Bannon doesn’t exactly have a good track record of judgement… I digress. But it really wasn’t until the CIA started publishing their endorsement that things possibly started making sense. WATCH:

.

Are they positioning NY Governor Andrew Cuomo to exit the DNC convention as the consensus nominee; the chosen one? It would take the construct, at least the optics of, a reluctantly drafted candidate to pull it off. Then again, what is all this – if not that.

Think that’s crazy?…. Let’s keep watching.

After all, we have to admire any opposition strategy so Machiavellian as to create an outcome where President Donald Trump would voluntarily dismantle the U.S. economy after being painted into a corner by some of the most effective narrative engineering ever witnessed.

Add a large dose of “six ways to Sunday” with a heaping pile of Clintonian revenge, and one could almost bring themselves to a place where all this starts to come together.

Nah,… that’s crazy talk.

Right?

This is NOT organic. WATCH – Another Example:

.

Notice how the graphics appearing on the screen are timed to prompt the oration; and all of it is targeting heart message, emotion over logic.

There is a teleprompter directly in front of and below Cuomo so he can reference the graphics as he gives his press remarks. You can see him checking the monitor for the next prompt. This is all rehearsed. Everything about this is a production.

A prepared script, graphics with points of emphasis, along with national media interrupting all broadcasts to run these messages, this draft nomination effort is brilliantly designed. People in Ohio, Florida, Arizona, Wisconsin, California and Michigan are wondering why they are watching a New York governor presser every day on their televisions.

You have to admit these are brilliant political operations.

Dr. WHO and the Clintons


How did State Department view this fraud at the Global Fund?

Dr. WHO and the ClintonsNote: Pictured above is Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO.) He is the first WHO director-general who is not a medical doctor.  He holds a Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) in Community Health from the University of Nottingham, and a Master of Science (MSc) in Immunology of Infectious Diseases from the University of London. From 2005-2012, he was Ethiopia’s Minister of Health.

Batman and Robin wade into the Swamp to out the Clinton Foundation

On March 23, 2019, this site posted an article entitled “Batman and Robin wade into the Swamp to out the Clinton Foundation”. The picture below is of two men swearing to tell the truth before a hearing of the House of Representatives, Subcommittee on Government Operations, on the afternoon of December 13, 2018.

These two are the “Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers”.

Only one Democrat House member showed up to ask questions—the appointed Democrat “delegate” from the District of Columbia. There weren’t enough people in the audience to field a baseball team.  It was the last Republican-led meeting of the subcommittee before the Democrats took control of the House. The chair, Rep. Mark Meadows, would later become President Trump’s Chief of Staff.

The witnesses were (right) John F. Moynihan, Principal, JFM & Associates, Compliance Advisory Group and (left) Lawrence Doyle, DM Income Advisors, Managing Partner. Think of them as bounty-hunter forensic accountants wading through the financials of the Clinton Foundation. If they can document tax fraud, they’re entitled to a percentage of the money owed to the government. And they believe they have sufficient documentation assembled.

Lawrence Doyle and John F. Moynihan

Oversight of Nonprofit Organizations, A Case Study on the Clinton Foundation

Doyle’s expertise comes from Wall Street where serious numbers-crunchers work.  Moynihan’s from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), where experts in uncovering money-laundering search.

The title to their presentation was “Oversight of Nonprofit Organizations, A Case Study on the Clinton Foundation”.

For an enhanced appreciation of what follows, you might open the link to the March 23, 2019 post, and skim the article. It puts what follows into context.

Set-up: On March 27, 2020, the “Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers”—as they describe themselves—tweeted a multi-instalment thread that is consolidated below into a straight copy format, without editing. The full content of their tweet is in italics:

“Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers, (Doyle-Moynihan): In light of our current public health crisis, I expect we will be hearing more from/about the World Health Organization (WHO) and the need for more global government funding a la a new Global Fund. Stay with me. This gets good: 

The current head of WHO is a Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, formerly the head of the Ministry of Health in Ethiopia, a speaker at the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative, and named chair of the board of the Global Fund in July 2009.

Tedros Adhanom’s tenure as board chair of the Global Fund

The Global Fund is an independent Geneva-based financing entity launched in 2002 to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. The US government provides 1/3rd of its funding totalling $18B to date since inception. 

Not widely known or broadcasted is the fact that the Clinton Foundation and Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative (an unauthorized and unapproved program by IRS codes) has been a sub-recipient of Global Fund money (Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative Indonesia Independent Progress Report pages 8, 9, 11, 25, 51). 

During Tedros Adhanom’s tenure as board chair of the Global Fund, the organization gets rocked by claims of fraud and misappropriation of funds. The US House Committee on Foreign Relations drafts a report “to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to correct and prevent the misuse of Fund resources.” (page 6/10) The Congressional report and other reviews minimize the size of the fraud and misappropriation of funds. 

Others with a more discerning eye had a more critical take. “A full 67% of money spent on an anti-AIDS program in Mauritania was misspent, the investigators told the fund’s board of directors. So did [sic] 36% of the money spent on a program in Mali to fight tuberculosis and malaria, 30% of grants to Djibouti” (source)   

Who was minding the purse strings of USAID which was the source of funds that went from the US State Dept to the Global Fund at this juncture? Documents we sourced from the State Department show that none other than Secretary Hillary Clinton herself over saw the USAID funds. 

 

At the same time the Clinton Foundation and Clinton HIV/AIDs and Clinton Health Access Initiative were collecting millions in fees

How did State Department view this fraud at the Global Fund? From a letter we sourced written by the Government Accountability Project on April 22, 2016, we learned: “this documentation strongly indicates an irregular and improper collusion between the Global Fund” and the State Department in Washington that cost U.S. taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars in the succeeding years. It is tantamount to fraud. 

At the same time the Clinton Foundation and Clinton HIV/AIDs and Clinton Health Access Initiative were collecting millions in fees, the Global Fund and also other recipients of Global Fund money who,  in turn, were donors to the Clinton Foundation (classic money laundering). These donors include the governments of Dominican Republic, Rwanda, and Lesotho. Where was the State Department IG while all this was going on? Oh, yes, that’s right there was no IG for the State Department during HRC’s tenure. How does that happen? Perhaps the same way a Secretary of State sets up a secret server. Rule of law, anybody? (Source)  

So when you hear from @BillGates and the World Health Organization @WHO and the Global Fund @GlobalFundand a host of others about WHO leader Tedros Adhanom, and for another version of the Global Fund to battle coronavirus, please retweet this thread.” [End Quote]
Below is the up-dated US Tax Court docket in the case of “Lawrence W. Doyle & John F. Moynihan v. the COMMISSIONER OF INTERNAL REVENUE.

The takeaways are these: (1) The Whistleblowers’ case is moving through that court system, although with sloth-like speed; and, (2) Batman and Robin are intrepid investigators on a mission that should give the Clintons pause.

Biden’s Train Of Thought


Everyone knows Joe Biden is a gaffe machine and he’s getting worse. During an interview he stated that the COVID-19 cure “will make the problem worse, no matter what.” In other recent interviews he made fumbling replies. Even though he was thrown softball questions, Joe quickly became confused and incoherent.

Clearly Biden is not mentally fit to be president and everyone knows it. He stands no chance against President Trump this fall. Unless the Democrats are resigned to lose, they’ll need to somehow force Joe out in a brokered convention. Some are talking about Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, as Joe’s replacement. Others think it will be Hillary.

It’s now clear why Obama told Biden, “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,”

Too bad Joe didn’t listen.

Mr. Bumbles – Candidate Joe Biden Attempts Teleprompter Briefing on Coronavirus…


Some people have been wondering what happened to Joe Biden and why he has been quarantined by the Biden campaign.  Well, today the presidential candidate said he was going to deliver a periscope briefing to share his insight about the U.S. response to the coronavirus… and, well… things didn’t quite go according to plan.

Apparently Mr. Biden had trouble reading the teleprompter, or something. WATCH:

Sunday Talks: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin Explains Economic Package to Mitigate COVID-19…


Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin appears on Fox News to discuss the financial legislation (likely vote tomorrow) to support workers and businesses immediately impacted by President Trump’s proactive shut-down of the U.S. economy.

Compare and Contrast: Bloomberg Spent $935 Million to Lose, Trump Spent $66 Million to Win…


I can’t stop laughing….

According to the New York Post Michael Bloomberg spent $935,360,675 in his failed attempt to win/buy the democrat presidential nomination.

WASHINGTON — Mike Bloomberg’s failed White House bid cost the media mogul nearly $1 billion, according to a new FEC filing — double what was previously reported.

The total cost of the Big Apple billionaire’s fully self-funded campaign was a stunning $935,360,675.56, the filing made public Friday shows. (link)

For comparison, Donald Trump spent $66 million on his 2016 campaign and won the presidency.  Bloomberg spent over 14 times more than Trump… and LOST.  Bigly.

How’d ya like them apples?

Social Distancing with Joe Biden


Social Distancing In The Democrat Primary

Biden continues to rack up delegates and he’s all but assured of the nomination. Look for Hillary to be his running mate. Bernie Sanders will probably drop out soon. Not because he wants to and normally he’d probably hang on so he can continue to make his predictable speeches because that’s what he does and has always done in life. He’s a socialist blowhard.

He’s also bound to political correctness. The perception now is he will endanger lives by helping expose people to the coronavirus by forcing people to show up at voting stations. Bernie will drop out due to the virus.

The Democrats will be ridin’ Biden, one of the oldest candidates ever to run for president. He’s also a thoroughly corrupt, demented, hair-sniffing serial groper as well as an incoherent gaffe machine who could not even get Obama’s endorsement. He’s more worried about climate change than the virus. He wants to destroy our energy industries. He wants to grab our guns.

Just say ‘NO!’ to Joe.
