Why is Romney Supporting Democrats Against his Own Party?


Mit Romney has long been suspected of not being exactly above question. He was the only person in the Republicans to vote to Impeach Trump. The former Republican presidential nominee has isolated himself from Republicans in the Senate, in his home state, and across the country. How his team is going to announce that they no longer support the Republicans and are endorsing Joe Biden. This has been a serious question with respect to Romney that he is not someone who really stands for much of anything other than himself and perhaps like Helmut Kohl which only after his death did we discover he had secreted millions in Swiss accounts that were given to him supposedly for party contributions that were funneled off to personal accounts. The fact that Romney’s people would even support Joe Biden when everyone behind the curtain thinks he is incompetent to be president which is why they are keeping him in the basement most the time, raises serious questions about the integrity of Romney.

Politics is just so disgusting anymore you have to wonder how much more will the people take before they do rise up in a full-blown revolution.

Tucker Carlson Begs Republicans to Stop Being Democrats…


Tucker Carlson used his opening monologue tonight to beg Republicans to stop being Democrats.   Most of what Carlson outlines is accurate, especially the “Nikki Haley waiting in the wings” to return to the UniParty rules part.

The end solution is the appropriate course.  We The People must take action to force a resounding Trump reelection, and then demand the GOP abandon their leftist alignment.

Jeff Sessions Failed His Biggest Test


Sessions was a cowardly leader of the Department of Justice. He permitted Deep State operatives to remain in key positions. He recused himself from the Russia investigation

Jeff Sessions Failed His Biggest Test

During his 20 years in the U.S. Senate, Jeff Sessions was a solid conservative who was right on issues such as stopping illegal immigration. He was the first U.S. Senator to endorse Donald Trump for President and was rewarded with one of the most coveted appointments in the new administration. Trump appointed Sessions to be U.S. Attorney General.

Unfortunately, Sessions was a cowardly leader of the Department of Justice. He permitted Deep State operatives to remain in key positions. He recused himself from the Russia investigation, allowing his Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, to appoint Robert Mueller as a Special Counsel.

Sessions is facing former Auburn University Football Coach Tommy Tuberville

The resulting investigation cost almost $40 million and lasted 22 months. It was a travesty of justice as the Mueller team, dominated by Democratic Party attorneys and activists, found no Russian collusion, and could not prove the President or his associates obstructed justice in any way. This did not stop them from harassing the President and forcing several of his campaign operatives into guilty pleas on charges that had nothing to do with Russia.

Sessions unleashed this holy hell upon President Trump by recusing himself and allowing the appointment of Mueller. The investigation was a partisan attempt to overturn the 2016 election results, in effect, it was an attempted political coup d’état. In the last administration, then U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder famously proclaimed that he would be Barack Obama’s “wingman.” He protected Barack Obama throughout his tenure. Such loyalty may not be appropriate for a U.S. Attorney General, but it is quite a contrast to the betrayal that President Trump received from Jeff Sessions.

The biased witch hunt, known as the Mueller investigation, infuriated President Trump. He has rightly never forgiven Sessions, who is now running for his old position as U.S. Senator from Alabama.

In an upcoming July GOP runoff, Sessions is facing former Auburn University Football Coach Tommy Tuberville. The latest poll shows Tuberville with a very comfortable lead over Sessions. The winner will face incumbent U.S. Senator Doug Jones, a Democrat, in the general election.

Sessions not only cost President two years of distraction and harassment, but he also cost the Republican Party a U.S. Senate seat

Jones was elected after Sessions resigned to take the position of U.S. Attorney General. He benefited from the GOP infighting over his general election opponent, former Judge Roy Moore, who was accused of inappropriate behavior with a variety of young girls earlier in his career. The firestorm allowed Jones to win in a state that is normally very Republican.

Thus, Sessions not only cost President two years of distraction and harassment, but he also cost the Republican Party a U.S. Senate seat.

In this election, President Trump enthusiastically endorsed Tuberville and has demanded that Sessions stop using his name in the campaign. The President labeled Sessions “delusional” for trying to fool Alabama voters into thinking he has always been a staunch Trump supporter.

If he is re-elected for another term, President Trump will need loyal supporters in Congress, not weaklings like Jeff Sessions. Therefore, he is committed to playing an active role in the U.S. Senate race in Alabama.

On Friday night, The President tweeted:

“3 years ago, after Jeff Sessions recused himself, the Fraudulent Mueller Scam began. Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions. He let our Country down. That’s why I endorsed Coach Tommy Tuberville.”

Sessions showed more boldness in fighting back against President Trump than he ever did as U.S. Attorney General

This attack from the President was too much for Sessions who fired back on Twitter, “Look, I know your anger, but recusal was required by law. I did my duty & you’re damn fortunate I did. It protected the rule of law & resulted in your exoneration. Your personal feelings don’t dictate who Alabama picks as their senator, the people of Alabama do.”

Ironically, Sessions showed more boldness in fighting back against President Trump than he ever did as U.S. Attorney General. He allowed career bureaucrats force him into a recusal that almost destroyed the Trump presidency.

Responding to Sessions, Tuberville tweeted that Jeff Sessions “is so desperate, he told @realDonaldTrump to thank him for the immoral & unconscionable Russia investigation! The only people who seem to agree are Democrats.”

Tuberville is correct as many legal experts disagree with Jeff Sessions that his “recusal was required by law.” He had only incidental meetings with Russian leaders and was not “compromised” or “conflicted” in any way. He could have surely overseen the Russian investigation to determine it was a fabrication based on the phony political document known as the “Steele dossier.”

Jeff Sessions had a chance for greatness, but he was too scared to do the right thing

Instead of standing up to the Deep State, Sessions folded and cowered. He was a joke of an Attorney General, which is why President said he would have never appointed him if he knew Sessions was going to recuse himself. He also called the appointment of Sessions his worst mistake as President.

On July 14, Republican voters will go to the polls in Alabama to pick their U.S. Senate nominee. They are choosing between a political newcomer with solid conservative credentials and a winning record as a college football coach. Clearly, Tommy Tuberville knows how to win and has done it throughout his career.

Opposing him is a true loser, Jeff Sessions, who was given a historic opportunity to assist the Trump administration and his country as U.S. Attorney General. Instead of standing up to political enemies, he was bullied by them into a recusal that led to the most egregious political witch hunt in American history.

Jeff Sessions had a chance for greatness, but he was too scared to do the right thing. At this point, he does not deserve another term as U.S. Senator as he is not the best candidate for the position. Hopefully, the voters of Alabama will deliver to Jeff Sessions, the political retirement he richly deserves.

Sunday Talks: Former AAG Matt Whitaker Discusses Flynn Case and Sketchy Judge…


Former Acting AG Matt Whitaker appears on Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the latest DOJ and FBI issues surfacing as a result of the Flynn case.  Additionally Matt Whitaker gives his perspective on Judge Emmet Sullivan’s latest efforts.

Lindsey Graham Schedules Committee Business Hearing to Consider Scheduling Subpoena Authorization Hearing…


We are nearing the end of the beginning of the end, as Senator Lindsey Graham announcesa request for a senate hearing to consider scheduling another senate hearing to consider the possible subpoenas for witnesses to appear at a later senate hearing over potential testimony at a possible senate hearing or deposition thereafter.

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced that the Committee would debateand vote on a subpoena authorization related to the FISA abuse investigation and oversight of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

Graham’s subpoena authorization covers a number of documents, communications and testimony from witnesses, including James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, and others.

The subpoena authorization will be first listed on the agenda for the Committee’s executive business meeting on May 21, 2020. The Committee is expected to vote on the subpoena authorization at its June 4, 2020 executive business meeting. (read more)

The hearing to consider a hearing surrounds subpoenas for a hearing involving 53 witness hearings and potential depositions:

Trisha Anderson, Brian Auten, James Baker, William Barr, Dana Boente, Jennifer Boone, John Brennan, James Clapper, Kevin Clinesmith, James Comey, Patrick Conlon, Michael Dempsey, Stuart Evans, Tashina Gauhar, Carl Ghattas, Curtis Heide, Kathleen Kavalec, David Laufman, Stephen Laycock, Jacob Lew, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, Mary McCord, Denis McDonough, Arthur McGlynn, Jonathan Moffa, Sally Moyer, Mike Neufield, Sean Newell, Victoria Nuland, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Stephanie L. O’Sullivan, Lisa Page, Joseph Pientka, John Podesta, Samantha Power, E.W. “Bill” Priestap, Sarah Raskin, Steve Ricchetti, Susan Rice, Rod Rosenstein, Gabriel Sanz-Rexach, Nathan Sheets, Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, Glenn Simpson, Steve Somma, Peter Strzok, Michael Sussman, Adam Szubin, Jonathan Winer, Christopher Wray, and Sally Yates.

The hearing to consider the scheduling for a hearing to authorize those 53 depositions will take place on May 24th.

Depending on the outcome of that hearing; a hearing scheduled for June 4th may be authorized.

If the hearing to schedule the hearing is successful, the June 4th hearing will authorize the additional hearings later this summer where testimony may be conducted if the witnesses do not fight the subpoenas.

53 witness testimonials,  likely closed-door depositions, over the senate calendar should cover three or four months of Judiciary Committee work; likely July through October.

If all goes according to plan… Once the witness depositions are concluded; and overlaying the holiday recess; the committee will then reassemble in early 2021 to debate the findings from the testimony over an approximately six month period.  At the conclusion of the staff debate on language to describe the committee findings (spring 2021); the committee may generate a report a few months later (summer/fall 2021).

SEC Routinely Prosecutes Family Favors in Business Dealings


 

treaty was signed between Ukraine and the USA which plainly states that Ukraine will assist in any investigation that may lead to criminal activity. There certainly is nothing that is impeachable to ask Ukraine to investigate Biden, which has long been considered a very strange conflict of interest.

In the real world, company directors would agree to do business with an American firm and request something personally in return like a family trip to Disneyland. In the real world, anyone in the private sector would be prosecuted for what Biden did with his son. It is called the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. There is absolutely no way I could agree to even pay for a trip or anything with the director of a foreign company we deal with even as a courtesy. It is presumed to be a bribe.

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is a United States law passed in 1977 that prohibits US firms and individuals from paying bribes to foreign officials in furtherance of a business deal. The FCPA places no minimum amount for a punishment of a bribery payment.

In 2010, the SEC’s Enforcement Division created a specialized unit to further enhance its enforcement of the FCPA, which prohibits companies issuing stock in the US from bribing foreign officials for government contracts and other business.

If I got a family member a job with a country or company that I was doing business with, I would AUTOMATICALLY be prosecuted by the SEC. So why is Joe Biden above the law?

The mere fact that the Democrats are yelling impeachment over this issue confirms that the entire Russian nonsense failed. This is by no means an impeachable offense. In fact, anyone else in the private sector would be in prison for what Joe Biden & his family did. Hillary met with donors from Ukraine to buy influence. She denied ever meeting them but her emails showed she did. They were both deeply involved in Ukraine.

The natural response is being played out now. The State Department is stepping up its investigation of Hillary’s emails concerning the ties to Ukraine. If the Democrats want to play with fire, Trump has a book of matched that could bring down the entire barn. It looks like the 2020 elections will be a knock-down, drag-out fight to the bitter end.

Further Evidence Intelligence Community Inspector General is Part of Lawfare Alliance…


Details are beginning to surface about the deep state Whistleblower complaint.  It is possible in the next few days the 6-page complaint, which utilized media reports to construct the supportive evidence for the phone call accusation against President Trump, will be made public.

That said, within a heavy propaganda report from the New York Times there are details about the Intelligence Community Inspector General that show the tell-tale fingerprints of the ICIG supportive intent (emphasis mine):

[…] Mr. Atkinson, a Trump appointee, nevertheless concluded that the allegations appeared to be credible and identified two layers of concern.

The first involved a possible violation of criminal law. Mr. Trump’s comments to Mr. Zelensky “could be viewed as soliciting a foreign campaign contribution in violation of the campaign-finance laws,” Mr. Atkinson wrote, according to the Justice Department memo. (read more)

Does the “foreign campaign contribution” angle sound familiar?  It should, because that argument was used in the narrative around the Trump Tower meeting with the Russian Lobbyist Natalia Veselnitskaya.  More specifically, just like FARA violations the overused “campaign contribution” narrative belongs to a specific network of characters, Lawfare.

The center of the Lawfare Alliance influence was/is the Department of Justice National Security Division, DOJ-NSD.  It was the DOJ-NSD running the Main Justice side of the 2016 operations to support Operation Crossfire Hurricane and FBI agent Peter Strzok.  It was also the DOJ-NSD where the sketchy legal theories around FARA violations (Sec. 901) originated.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) is Michael K Atkinson.  ICIG Atkinson is the official who accepted the ridiculous premise of a hearsay ‘whistle-blower‘ complaint; an intelligence whistleblower who was “blowing-the-whistle” based on second hand information of a phone call without any direct personal knowledge, ie ‘hearsay‘.

Michael K Atkinson was previously the Senior Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ-NSD) in 2016. That makes Atkinson senior legal counsel to John Carlin and Mary McCord who were the former heads of the DOJ-NSD in 2016 when the stop Trump operation was underway.

.

[Irony Reminder: The DOJ-NSD was purposefully under no IG oversight. In 2015 the OIG requested oversight and it was Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58 page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.]

Put another way, Michael Atkinson was the lawyer for the same DOJ-NSD players who: (1) lied to the FISA court (Judge Rosemary Collyer) about the 80% non compliant NSA database abuse using FBI contractors; (2) filed the FISA application against Carter Page; and (3) used FARA violations as tools for political surveillance and political targeting.

Yes, that means Michael Atkinson was Senior Counsel for the DOJ-NSD, at the very epicenter of the political weaponization and FISA abuse.

Immediately after the Carter Page FISA warrant is approved, in the period where DOJ-NSD head John Carlin has given his notice of intent to leave but not yet left, inside those specific two weeks, the National Security Division of the DOJ tells the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) they have been breaking the law. The NSD specifically inform the court they are aware of contractors who have been using FISA 702(16)(17) database search queries to extract information on political candidates.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has looked into the FISA application used against U.S. Person Carter Page. Additionally, U.S. Attorney John Durham is said to be looking at the intelligence communities’ use of systems for spying and surveillance.

If the DOJ-NSD exploitation of the NSA database, and/or DOJ-NSD FISA abuse, and/or DOJ-NSD FARA corruption were ever to reach sunlight, current ICIG Atkinson -as the lawyer for the process- would be under a lot of scrutiny for his involvement.

Yes, that gives current ICIG Michael Atkinson a strong and corrupt motive to participate with the Schiff/Lawfare impeachment objective.

Atkinson’s conflict-of-self-interest, and/or possible blackmail upon him by deep state actors who most certainly know his compromise, likely influenced his approach to this whistleblower complaint.   That would explain why the Dept. of Justice Office of Legal Counsel so strongly rebuked Atkinson’s interpretation of his responsibility with the complaint.

In the Justice Department’s OLC opinion, they point out that Atkinson’s internal justification for accepting the whistleblower complaint was poor legal judgement.  [See Here]  I would say Atkinson’s decision is directly related to his own risk exposure:

Whistleblower Complaint Now Looks Like Democrat Effort to Protect Joe Biden from Investigation…


The mysterious “whistleblower” case now looks like a coordinated Democrat effort to block any investigation of presidential candidate Joe Biden for corrupt pressure on Ukraine to drop the investigation of Burisma, an energy company operating in the country, on which his son Hunter Biden was a board member.

In March 2016, then Vice-President Joe Biden warned Ukraine that $1 billion in loan guarantees would be withheld by the U.S. unless they replaced Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor general who was investigating Hunter Biden.  Ukraine did remove Shokin, and the prosecution was dropped.  It looks like a clear case of a quid-pro-quo.

However, as things are starting to shake out, the current obfuscation to protect Joe Biden is President Trump asking Ukraine’s new president Volodymyr Zelensky to take another look at the issues surrounding the former government’s decision to fire the Ukrainian prosecutor.  This is presumably the call concerning to the whistleblower.  To wit, democrats see this as Trump asking Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election.

Washington Post – A whistleblower complaint about President Trump made by an intelligence official centers on Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the matter, which has set off a struggle between Congress and the executive branch.

The complaint involved communications with a foreign leader and a “promise” that Trump made, which was so alarming that a U.S. intelligence official who had worked at the White House went to the inspector general of the intelligence community, two former U.S. officials said.

Two and a half weeks before the complaint was filed, Trump spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a comedian and political newcomer who was elected in a landslide in May.

That call is already under investigation by House Democrats who are examining whether Trump and his attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani sought to manipulate the Ukrainian government into helping Trump’s reelection campaign. Lawmakers have demanded a full transcript and a list of participants on the call. (read more)

Three Democrat-controlled house committees – Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Government Reform – have announced that they will investigate whether a host of ethical and legal rules have been violated.

From the Independent: […] The house committees’ chairs say they will scrutinise a telephone call between the US president and Mr Zelensky on 25 July, during which Mr Trump allegedly told the Ukrainian president to reopen the Biden investigation if he wanted to improve relations with the US.

They claim that Kurt Volker, the US special representative for Ukraine, was told to intercede with President Zelensky by the White House, and they are looking into the activities of Rudy Giuliani, Mr Trump’s personal lawyer.

Mr Giuliani urged Mr Zelensky soon after his election to focus on the Biden case, but the Ukrainian president is said to have refused, protesting that he did not want to get drawn into American internal politics.

This led to Mr Giuliani cancelling a trip to Kiev, saying he felt that he would be “walking into a group of people that are the enemies of our president … in some cases the enemies of the United States”. (more)

Coup Continues: New York D.A. Subpoenas Trump Tax Returns in Criminal Probe

The District Attorney in Manhattan, Cyrus Vance, Jr., subpoenas eight years of Trump federal and state tax returns as part of a criminal probe into hush money payments allegedly made to Stephanie Clifford, AKA porn actor Stormy Daniels. Will the New York D.A. succeed where Congressional Democrats have failed? If the investigation concerns a 2016 election cycle payoff, why subpoena records dating back to 2011? And when will President Trump keep his campaign promise to voluntarily release his tax returns?

 

UPDATE: More Details Surface Surrounding Arrest of Senior Canadian Intelligence Official…


Mercedes Stephenson from Global News has done some excellent follow-up coverage on the arrest of RCMP Intelligence Director Cameron Ortis.  Mr. Ortis is facing seven serious charges of intelligence violations including obtaining information to pass to a “foreign entity.”  The intelligence compromise is the biggest scandal in “a generation”.

New evidence shows the arrest was a result of a 2018 international intelligence operation that targeted the encrypted communications service known as “Phantom Secure”.

A man named Victor Ramos was the CEO of Phantom Secure, an enterprise that provided encrypted communication devices to criminal agents involved in drug smuggling, money laundering and human trafficking.

Ramos was arrested by United States FBI officials in Washington State.  Ramos gave the FBI information about intelligence for sale that was coming from a source deep inside the Five-Eyes intelligence apparatus.  That information led to RCMP Director Cameron Ortis.

The scale of the compromise is still being analyzed. Ortis was director general of the National Intelligence Coordination Centre in Canada. In essence, Ortis was the Canadian equivalent of the U.S. Director of National Intelligence (James Clapper/Dan Coats); and had access to the most sensitive intelligence information amid the entire Five-Eyes network that includes: Canada, The United States, The U.K. Australia and New Zealand.

(Global News) […] “By virtue of the positions he held, Mr. Ortis had access to information the Canadian intelligence community possessed. He also had access to intelligence coming from our allies both domestically and internationally,” RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki said Monday.

The charges have “shaken many people throughout the RCMP,” she said in a statement, adding the police force was “assessing the impacts of the alleged activities as information becomes available.”

“We are aware of the potential risk to agency operations of our partners in Canada and abroad and we thank them for their continued collaboration. We assure you that mitigation strategies are being put in place as required.”

[…] From his position as director general of intelligence in Ottawa, Ortis would have been able to access almost any sensitive information he wanted.

This could include the force’s blueprints for covert operations worldwide, as well as the identities of undercover officers, police agents working within transnational crime groups, officers from Five Eyes partners used in RCMP probes, and even witnesses relocated to other countries.

“He could have passed on our methodologies, our tactics, and our whole covert infrastructure,” Majcher said. “If it is true that he is dealing with some of the worst people in the world, they will be looking for what do the police know, how do they do stings on us?

“The damage he has potentially done could be quite massive and it could be generational.”  (read more)
