ShadowGate: What They Don’t Want You To See

Millie Weaver is a journalist and filmmaker who was arrested on multiple felony charges just hours before the scheduled debut of her new documentary titled ShadowGate: What They Don’t Want You To See.

In her densely packed exposé, Weaver unravels a perpetual plot, orchestrated by both major political parties, several public Federal agencies and a multitude of tax payer sponsored private intelligence contractors to remove President Donald Trump from office, and how it all works.

FALSE FLAG ALERT: Obama Foundation tweeted about George Floyd on May 17th, a week before his supposed murder

(Natural News) We have now confirmed that the Obama Foundation was tweeting about George Floyd on May 17th, more than a week before the day Floyd was reportedly killed by police in an act of violence that sparked the worldwide riots we’re all witnessing.

George Floyd was killed on May 25th. So what was the Obama Foundation doing tweeting about Floyd on May 17th, when nobody knew who he was?

UPDATE: Some people are saying that Twitter retroactively alters images from the history of your timeline when the source URL changes its image. However, what investigators have already confirmed is that the Twitter URL validator was used by the Obama Foundation to validate this image on May 17th, in advance of releasing it publicly. Thus, the image was VALIDATED more than a week before Floyd’s claimed death. This, combined with the new video analysis that claims George Floyd’s death was faked using crisis actors, raise serious questions about the authenticity of this event, which appears to have been planned and carried out for political purposes, right in time for the 2020 election. The Obama Foundation Twitter picture is only a tiny fragment in the larger picture that is now emerging of a pre-planned false flag event.

The answer, of course, is that the whole thing was planned in advance. Just like on 9/11 when the media was reporting that the WTC 7 building had collapsed even while it was still standing in the frame directly behind them, it looks like the Obama Foundation got its wires crossed and accidentally started tweeting about George Floyd a week in advance.

Once the first tweet accidentally went out, they couldn’t delete it without raising suspicion about it, so they just left it up and are relying on Big Tech’s censorship to make sure nobody learns the truth that this was all planned in advanced and rigged as public theater.

In fact, there is growing evidence that George Floyd isn’t even dead. We’ll cover more on that later. We’ve already documented the fact that actors are now posing as cops as part of a rioting psyop (psychological operation) that’s being used to brainwash more people into supporting the communist uprising.

YouTube is now banning all videos that discuss the Obama Foundation tweet about George Floyd on May 17th, and Facebook has made sure that no one can share any link from NaturalNews.com as a further suppression of truthful, independent reporting.

Watch these two videos to confirm this news for yourself:

Obama Pauses Riots To Unify The National Socialists And Communist Insurgency

Riots Cancelled – Grievance Network Back Together Again – Former President Obama and Floyd Family Attorney, Ben Crump, Now Execute Phase Two…

(Sundance) Once you see the strings on the grievance marionettes, you can never watch the pantomime without seeing them; thus the playbook is transparent. Team Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Team AME Church have again aligned, exactly as we expected.

Tonight at 5:00pm former President Barack Obama will deliver remarks about race and social justice during a virtual town-hall sponsored by his “my brother’s keeper” initiative. Simultaneous to that announcement, George Floyd family attorney, Benjamin Crump, delivers remarks from Minneapolis about healing, race and social justice.  To assist the sympathetic narrative Ben Crump introduces George Floyd’s son, Quincy Mason.

Benjamin Crump (AME) introduced the three word catch phrase “take a breath”; initiating a week of memorials for George Floyd that will travel to three states over 5 days. President Obama (BLM) will likely promote “take a knee” etc. [It’s always three words]

All of the activist grievance leaders, in addition to the politicians, have been instructed to reign-in the protests in coordination with the 5:00pm Obama remarks. That timing allows the media to present the ‘healing Obama’ narrative; riots and looting stop etc.

Meanwhile, attorney Ben Crump will deliver the same healing message with the added demand that all police officers must be arrested by the time the first memorial takes place at 1:00pm tomorrow.

The “all we want is an arrest” approach, comes directly from the BLM/AME playbook as executed in Orlando/Miami (Trayvon Martin), Ferguson (Mike Brown), and Baltimore (Freddie Gray). Now that both networks have come back together and aligned, all of the coordination is much easier. Many CTH readers will immediately recognize the playbook.

Senator Rand Paul Reacts to Obama-Biden Officials Unmasking and Leaking Trump Transition Team Communications…

(Sundance) A few points on the unmasking before Rand Paul response.  First, the release today is only what the Obama team did regarding unmasking General Flynn.  As Devin Nunes previously outlined, there are many more Trump transition team members who were unmasked as the Obama team conducted surveillance on the incoming administration.

Second, the NSA “reports” are related to actual transcripts, emails and text messages of communication; not just various intelligence interpretations of those communications.

As Senator Rand Paul shares, the effort of the Obama and Biden administration to unmask their political opposition during the transition; and then use widespread distribution and leaks to the media to push a specific one-sided view; is the weaponization of the intelligence apparatus to target political opposition.  That’s the major issue:

Again, a reminder, these reports surround only NSA intercepts. Simultaneous to this there was an ongoing FBI counterintelligence operation using FISA surveillance (Carter Page) and non-fisa targeted FBI surveillance of Michael Flynn.

Why is Obama Panicking Now? – The Importance of Understanding Political Surveillance In The Era of President Obama…

(Sundance) Why is former President Obama calling forth all his defensive resources now?  Why did former national security advisor Susan Rice write her cya letter?  Why have republicans in congress not been willing to investigate the true origins of political surveillance?  What is the reason for so much anger, desperation and opposition from a variety of interests?

With the release of recent transcripts and the declassification of material from within the IG report, the Carter Page FISA and Flynn documents showing FBI activity, there is a common misconception about why the intelligence apparatus began investigating the Trump campaign in the first place.  Why was Donald Trump considered a threat?

In this outline we hope to provide some fully cited deep source material that will explain the origin; and specifically why the those inside the Intelligence Community began targeting Trump and using Confidential Human Sources against campaign officials.

During the time-frame of December 2015 through April 2016 the NSA database was being exploited by contractors within the intelligence community doing unauthorized searches.

On March 9, 2016, oversight personnel doing a review of FBI system access were alerted to thousands of unauthorized search queries of specific U.S. persons within the NSA database.

NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers was made aware.

Subsequently NSA Director Rogers initiated a full compliance review of the system to identify who was doing the searches; & what searches were being conducted.

On April 18, 2016, following the preliminary audit results, Director Rogers shut down all FBI contractor access to the database after he learned FISA-702 “about”(17) and “to/from”(16) search queries were being done without authorization. Thus begins the first discovery of a much bigger background story.

When you compile the timeline with the people involved; and the specific wording of the resulting review, which was then delivered to the FISA court; and overlay the activity that was taking place in the GOP primary; what we discover is a process where the metadata collected by the NSA was being searched for political opposition research and surveillance.

Additionally, tens-of-thousands of searches were identified by the FISA court as likely extending much further than the compliance review period: “while the government reports it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of the non compliant queries since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015 [to] April 2016 period coincided with an unusually high error rate”.

In short, during the Obama administration the NSA database was continually used to conduct surveillance. This is the critical point that leads to understanding the origin of “Spygate”, as it unfolded in the Spring and Summer of 2016.

It was the discovery of the database exploitation and the removal of access as a surveillance tool that created their initial problem. Here’s how we can tell.

Initially in December 2015 there were 17 GOP candidates and all needed to be researched.

However, when Donald Trump won New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina the field was significantly whittled. Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Kasich and Carson remained.

On Super Tuesday, March 2, 2016, Donald Trump won seven states (VT, AR, VA, GA, AL, TN, MA) it was then clear that Trump was the GOP front runner with momentum to become the presumptive nominee. On March 5th, Trump won Kentucky and Louisiana; and on March 8th Trump won Michigan, Mississippi and Hawaii.

The next day, March 9th, NSA security alerts warned internal oversight personnel that something sketchy was going on.

This timing is not coincidental. As FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer later wrote in her report, “many of these non-compliant queries involved the use of the same identifiers over different date ranges.” Put another way: attributes belonging to a specific individual(s) were being targeted and queried, unlawfully. Given what was later discovered, it seems obvious the primary search target, over multiple date ranges, was Donald Trump.

There were tens-of-thousands of unauthorized search queries; and as Judge Collyer stated in her report, there is no reason to believe the 85% non compliant rate was any different from the abuse of the NSA database going back to 2012.

As you will see below the NSA database was how political surveillance was being conducted during Obama’s second term in office. However, when the system was flagged, and when NSA Director Mike Rogers shut down “contractor” access to the system, the system users needed to develop another way to get access.

Mike Rogers shuts down access on April 18, 2016. On April 19, 2016, Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s wife, Mary Jacoby visits the White House. Immediately thereafter, the DNC and Clinton campaign contract Fusion GPS… who then hire Christopher Steele.

Knowing it was federal “contractors”, outside government with access to the system, doing the unauthorized searches, the question becomes: who were the contractors?

The possibilities are quite vast. Essentially anyone the FBI or intelligence apparatus was using could have participated. Crowdstrike was a known FBI contractor; they were also contracted by the DNC. Shawn Henry was the former head of the FBI office in DC and is now the head of Crowdstrike; a rather dubious contractor for the government and a politically connected data security and forensic company. James Comey’s special friend Daniel Richman was an unpaid FBI “special employee” with security access to the database. Nellie Ohr began working for Fusion-GPS on the Trump project in November 2015 and she was a CIA contractor; and it’s entirely likely Glenn Simpson or people within his Fusion-GPS network were also contractors for the intelligence community.

Remember the Sharyl Attkisson computer intrusions? It’s all part of this same network; Attkisson even names Shawn Henry as a defendant in her ongoing lawsuit.

All of the aforementioned names, and so many more, held a political agenda in 2016.

It seems likely if the NSA flags were never triggered then the contracted system users would have continued exploiting the NSA database for political opposition research; which would then be funneled to the Clinton team. However, once the unauthorized flags were triggered, the system users (including those inside the official intelligence apparatus) needed to find another back-door to continue… Again, the timing becomes transparent.

Immediately after NSA flags were raised March 9th; the same intelligence agencies began using confidential human sources (CHS’s) to run into the Trump campaign. By activating intelligence assets like Joseph Mifsud and Stefan Halper the IC (CIA, FBI) and system users had now created an authorized way to continue the same political surveillance operations.

When Donald Trump hired Paul Manafort on March 28, 2016, it was a perfect scenario for those doing the surveillance. Manafort was a known entity to the FBI and was previously under investigation. Paul Manafort’s entry into the Trump orbit was perfect for Glenn Simpson to sell his prior research on Manafort as a Trump-Russia collusion script two weeks later.

The shift from “unauthorized exploitation of the NSA database” to legally authorized exploitation of the NSA database was now in place. This was how they continued the political surveillance. This is the confluence of events that originated “spygate”, or what officially blossomed into the FBI investigation known as “Crossfire Hurricane” on July 31.

If the NSA flags were never raised; and if Director Rogers had never initiated the compliance audit; and if the political contractors were never blocked from access to the database; they would never have needed to create a legal back-door, a justification to retain the surveillance. The political operatives/contractors would have just continued the targeted metadata exploitation.

Once they created the surveillance door, Fusion-GPS was then needed to get the FBI known commodity of Chris Steele activated as a pipeline. Into that pipeline all system users pushed opposition research. However, one mistake from the NSA database extraction during an “about” query shows up as a New Yorker named Michael Cohen in Prague.

That misinterpreted data from a FISA-702 “about query” is then piped to Steele and turns up inside the dossier; it was the wrong Michael Cohen. It wasn’t Trump’s lawyer, it was an art dealer from New York City with the same name; the same “identifier”.

A DEEP DIVE – How Did It Work?

Start by reviewing the established record from the 99-page FISC opinion rendered by Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer on April 26, 2017. Review the details within the FISC opinion.

I would strongly urge everyone to read the FISC report (full pdf below) because Judge Collyer outlines how the DOJ, which includes the FBI, had an “institutional lack of candor” in responses to the FISA court. In essence, the Obama administration was continually lying to the FISA court about their activity, and the rate of fourth amendment violations for illegal searches and seizures of U.S. persons’ private information for multiple years.

Unfortunately, due to intelligence terminology Judge Collyer’s brief and ruling is not an easy read for anyone unfamiliar with the FISA processes. That complexity also helps the media avoid discussing it; and as a result most Americans have no idea the scale and scope of the Obama-era surveillance issues. So we’ll try to break down the language.

For the sake of brevity and common understanding CTH will highlight the most pertinent segments showing just how systemic and troublesome the unlawful electronic surveillance was.

Early in 2016 NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers was alerted of a significant uptick in FISA-702(17) “About” queries using the FBI/NSA database that holds all metadata records on every form of electronic communication.

The NSA compliance officer alerted Admiral Mike Rogers who then initiated a full compliance audit on/around March 9th, 2016, for the period of November 1st, 2015, through May 1st, 2016.

While the audit was ongoing, due to the severity of the results that were identified, Admiral Mike Rogers stopped anyone from using the 702(17) “about query” option, and went to the extraordinary step of blocking all FBI contractor access to the database on April 18, 2016 (keep these dates in mind).

Here are some significant segments:

The key takeaway from these first paragraphs is how the search query results were exported from the NSA database to users who were not authorized to see the material. The FBI contractors were conducting searches and then removing, or ‘exporting’, the results. Later on, the FBI said all of the exported material was deleted.

Searching the highly classified NSA database is essentially a function of filling out search boxes to identify the user-initiated search parameter and get a return on the search result.

♦ FISA-702(16) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (“702”); and the “16” is a check box to initiate a search based on “To and From“. Example, if you put in a date and a phone number and check “16” as the search parameter the user will get the returns on everything “To and From” that identified phone number for the specific date. Calls, texts, contacts etc. Including results for the inbound and outbound contacts.

♦ FISA-702(17) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (702); and the “17” is a check box to initiate a search based on everything “About” the search qualifier. Example, if you put a date and a phone number and check “17” as the search parameter the user will get the returns of everything about that phone. Calls, texts, contacts, geolocation (or gps results), account information, user, service provider etc. As a result, 702(17) can actually be used to locate where the phone (and user) was located on a specific date or sequentially over a specific period of time which is simply a matter of changing the date parameters.

And that’s just from a phone number.

Search an ip address “about” and read all data into that server; put in an email address and gain everything about that account. Or use the electronic address of a GPS enabled vehicle (about) and you can withdraw more electronic data and monitor in real time. Search a credit card number and get everything about the account including what was purchased, where, when, etc. Search a bank account number, get everything about transactions and electronic records etc. Just about anything and everything can be electronically searched; everything has an electronic ‘identifier’.

The search parameter is only limited by the originating field filled out. Names, places, numbers, addresses, etc. By using the “About” parameter there may be thousands or millions of returns. Imagine if you put “@realdonaldtrump” into the search parameter? You could extract all following accounts who interacted on Twitter, or Facebook etc. You are only limited by your imagination and the scale of the electronic connectivity.

As you can see below, on March 9th, 2016, internal auditors noted the FBI was sharing “raw FISA information, including but not limited to Section 702-acquired information”.

In plain English the raw search returns were being shared with unknown entities without any attempt to “minimize” or redact the results. The person(s) attached to the results were named and obvious. There was no effort to hide their identity or protect their 4th amendment rights of privacy; and database access was from the FBI network:

But what’s the scale here? This is where the story really lies.

Read this next excerpt carefully.

The operators were searching “U.S Persons”. The review of November 1, 2015, to May 1, 2016, showed “eighty-five percent of those queries” were unlawful or “non compliant”.

85% !! “representing [redacted number]”.

We can tell from the space of the redaction the number of searches were between 10,000 and 99,999 [six digits]. If we take the middle number of 50,000 – a non compliant rate of 85 percent means 42,500 unlawful searches out of 50,000.

The [six digit] amount (more than 10,000, less than 99,999), and 85% error rate, was captured in a six month period, November 2015 to April 2016.

Also notice this very important quote: “many of these non-compliant queries involved the use of the same identifiers over different date ranges.” This tells us the system users were searching the same phone number, email address, electronic identifier, repeatedly over different dates.

Specific person(s) were being tracked/monitored.

Additionally, notice the last quote: “while the government reports it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of” these non lawful searches “since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015 [to] April 2016 coincided with an unusually high error rate”.

That means the 85% unlawful FISA-702(16)(17) database abuse has likely been happening since 2012.

2012 is an important date in this database abuse because a network of specific interests is assembled that also shows up in 2016/2017:

  • Who was 2012 FBI Director? Robert Mueller, who was selected by the FBI group to become special prosecutor in 2017.
  • Who was Mueller’ chief-of-staff? Aaron Zebley, who became one of the lead lawyers on the Mueller special counsel.
  • Who was 2012 CIA Director? John Brennan (remember the ouster of Gen Petraeus)
  • Who was ODNI? James Clapper.
  • Remember, the NSA is inside the Pentagon (Defense Dept) command structure. Who was Defense Secretary? Ash Carter

Who wanted NSA Director Mike Rogers fired in 2016? Brennan, Clapper and Carter.

And finally, who wrote and signed-off-on the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment and then lied about the use of the Steele Dossier? The same John Brennan, and James Clapper along with James Comey.

Tens of thousands of searches over four years (since 2012), and 85% of them are illegal. The results were extracted for?…. (I believe this is all political opposition use; and I’ll explain why momentarily.)

OK, that’s the stunning scale; but who was involved?

Private contractors with access to “raw FISA information that went well beyond what was necessary to respond to FBI’s requests“:

And as noted, the contractor access was finally halted on April 18th, 2016.

[Coincidentally (or likely not), the wife of Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson, Mary Jacoby, goes to the White House the very next day on April 19th, 2016.]

None of this is conspiracy theory.

All of this is laid out inside this 99-page opinion from FISC Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer who also noted that none of this FISA abuse was accidental in a footnote on page 87:deliberate decision making“:

This specific footnote, if declassified, could be a key. Note the phrase: “([redacted] access to FBI systems was the subject of an interagency memorandum of understanding entered into [redacted])”, this sentence has the potential to expose an internal decision; withheld from congress and the FISA court by the Obama administration; that outlines a process for access and distribution of surveillance data.

Note: “no notice of this practice was given to the FISC until 2016“, that is important.

Summary: The FISA court identified and quantified tens-of-thousands of search queries of the NSA/FBI database using the FISA-702(16)(17) system. The database was repeatedly used by persons with contractor access who unlawfully searched and extracted the raw results without redacting the information and shared it with an unknown number of entities.

The outlined process certainly points toward a political spying and surveillance operation; and we are not the only one to think that’s what this system is being used for.

Back in 2017 when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was working to reauthorize the FISA legislation, Nunes wrote a letter to ODNI Dan Coats about this specific issue:

SIDEBAR: To solve the issue, well, actually attempt to ensure it never happened again, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers eventually took away the “About” query option permanently in 2017. NSA Director Rogers said the abuse was so inherent there was no way to stop it except to remove the process completely. [SEE HERE] Additionally, the NSA database operates as a function of the Pentagon, so the Trump administration went one step further. On his last day as NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers -together with ODNI Dan Coats- put U.S. cyber-command, the database steward, fully into the U.S. military as a full combatant command. [SEE HERE] Unfortunately it didn’t work as shown by the 2018 FISC opinion rendered by FISC Judge James Boasberg [SEE HERE]

There is little doubt the FISA-702(16)(17) database system was used by Obama-era officials, from 2012 through April 2016, as a way to spy on their political opposition.

Quite simply there is no other intellectually honest explanation for the scale and volume of database abuse that was taking place; and keep in mind these searches were all ruled to be unlawful. Searches for repeated persons over a period time that were not authorized.

When we reconcile what was taking place and who was involved, then the actions of the exact same principle participants take on a jaw-dropping amount of clarity.

All of the action taken by CIA Director Brennan, FBI Director Comey, ODNI Clapper and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter make sense. Including their effort to get NSA Director Mike Rogers fired.

Everything after March 9th, 2016, had a dual purpose: (1) done to cover up the weaponization of the FISA database. [Explained Here] Spygate, Russia-Gate, the Steele Dossier, and even the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (drawn from the dossier and signed by the above) were needed to create a cover-story and protect themselves from discovery of this four year weaponization, political surveillance and unlawful spying. Even the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel makes sense; he was FBI Director when this began. And (2) they needed to keep the surveillance going.

The beginning decision to use FISA(702) as a domestic surveillance and political spy mechanism appears to have started in/around 2012. Perhaps sometime shortly before the 2012 presidential election and before John Brennan left the White House and moved to CIA. However, there was an earlier version of data assembly that preceded this effort.

Political spying 1.0 was actually the weaponization of the IRS. This is where the term “Secret Research Project” originated as a description from the Obama team. It involved the U.S. Department of Justice under Eric Holder and the FBI under Robert Mueller. It never made sense why Eric Holder requested over 1 million tax records via CD ROM, until overlaying the timeline of the FISA abuse:

The IRS sent the FBI “21 disks constituting a 1.1 million page database of information from 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” The transaction occurred in October 2010 (link)

Why disks? Why send a stack of DISKS to the DOJ and FBI when there’s a pre-existing financial crimes unit within the IRS. All of the evidence within this sketchy operation came directly to the surface in early spring 2012.

The IRS scandal was never really about the IRS, it was always about the DOJ asking the IRS for the database of information. That is why it was transparently a conflict when the same DOJ was tasked with investigating the DOJ/IRS scandal. Additionally, Obama sent his chief-of-staff Jack Lew to become Treasury Secretary; effectively placing an ally to oversee/cover-up any issues. As Treasury Secretary Lew did just that.

Lesson Learned – It would appear the Obama administration learned a lesson from attempting to gather a large opposition research database operation inside a functioning organization large enough to have some good people that might blow the whistle.

The timeline reflects a few months after realizing the “Secret Research Project” was now worthless (June 2012), they focused more deliberately on a smaller network within the intelligence apparatus and began weaponizing the FBI/NSA database. If our hunch is correct, that is what will be visible in footnote #69:

How this all comes together in 2019/2020

Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 just to research Donald Trump. As shown in the evidence provided by the FISC, the intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. The Obama administration already knew everything about the Trump campaign, and were monitoring everything by exploiting the FISA database.

However, after the NSA alerts in/around March 9th, 2016, and particularly after the April 18th shutdown of contractor access, the Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to create a legal albeit ex post facto justification for the pre-existing surveillance and spy operations. Fusion GPS gave them that justification in the Steele Dossier.

That’s why the FBI small group, which later transitioned into the Mueller team, were so strongly committed to and defending the formation of the Steele Dossier and its dubious content.

The Steele Dossier, an outcome of the Fusion contract, contains three insurance policy purposes: (1) the cover-story and justification for the pre-existing surveillance operation (protect Obama); and (2) facilitate the FBI counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign (assist Clinton); and (3) continue the operation with a special counsel (protect both).

An insurance policy would be needed. The Steele Dossier becomes the investigative virus the FBI wanted inside the system. To get the virus into official status, they used the FISA application as the delivery method and injected it into Carter Page. The FBI already knew Carter Page; essentially Carter Page was irrelevant, what they needed was the FISA warrant and the Dossier in the system {Go Deep}.

The Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a plausible justification for already existing surveillance and spy operations. Fusion-GPS gave them that justification and evidence for a FISA warrant with the Steele Dossier.

Ultimately that’s why the Steele Dossier was so important; without it, the FBI would not have a tool that Mueller needed to continue the investigation of President Trump. In essence by renewing the FISA application, despite them knowing the underlying dossier was junk, the FBI was keeping the surveillance gateway open for Team Mueller to exploit later on.

Additionally, without the Steele Dossier the DOJ and FBI are naked with their FISA-702 abuse as outlined by John Ratcliffe.

Thankfully we know U.S. Attorney John Durham has talked to NSA Director Mike Rogers. In this video Rogers explains how he was notified of what was happening and what he did after the notification.

Obama Panics – President Obama Gives Political Operatives and Media Talking Points to Protect Him…

On the heels of General Michael Flynn’s exoneration.

(Sundance) The good news is former President Obama is panicked by recent sunlight; the slight possibility of a U.S. DOJ that may soon have him in the cross-hairs; and the more obvious possibility the American people will discover the scale of his corrupt weaponization of intelligence to target his political opposition.

The better news is former President Obama is so heavily concerned about the looming possibilities; rather than relying on intermediary instructions through Media Matters; he is giving political operatives and national media his instructions directly.  LISTEN:

Is Iran Using Obama’s Pallets Of Cash To Fund $80 Million Bounty For Trump’s Head?

Obama, Kerry flew $400 million cash to Tehran to appease the Ayatollah in 2015

Iran state TV announced an $80 million bounty for President Trump’s head on Sunday following the targeting strike of Qassam Soleimani despite the fact the nation is suffering under crippling sanctions.

Given the crushing U.S. economic sanctions bearing down on Iran, how is the Islamic nation able to offer such a large reward for Trump’s assassination?

The answer may lie in the $1.7 billion payment former President Obama sent to Iran, including $400 million delivered on pallets in a C-130 as part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) in 2015.

The “compromise” payment was made as part of the $150 billion sanction relief to Iran for the nuclear deal despite the fact both Obama and former Secretary of State John Kerry outright admitted some of that money would be used to fund terrorism.

As of 2019, the sanctions reimposed by President Trump have resulted in a collapse in foreign investment and Iran’s tourism sector, and skyrocketing unemployment and crime.

Yet the Islamic regime can still set aside $80 million for a bounty on the life of the President of the United States with the full support of the left in America.

How much of that bounty came from U.S. taxpayers?

Quid Pro Quo: Obama Gave $350M Common Core Deal To Publisher, Got $65M Book Deal In Return

Well, well, well, lookie what we got here…

As House Democrats go through President Trump’s history with a fine tooth comb, attempting to find anything they can possibly use as leverage with the public to forcibly remove him from office, let’s turn to their own side of the aisle, starting with the once penniless President Obama, who left public office a very, very rich man.

The former community organizer just bought an upscale Martha’s Vineyard mansion for an eye-watering $11.75 million, which has been added to his collection of properties including the Kalorama lookout post, the Chicago home, and possibly a Hawaii spread. So much for “Yes we can.” More like “You just watch me.”

Obama’s huge wealth is mainly the work of his book deals. No bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors there, right?

Well, take a closer look…

According to Investment Watch (IWB), Obama’s business dealings don’t pass the smell test.

Obama gave Pearson Publishing a hugely lucrative $350 million contract to produce Common Core text books then a few years later, as soon as he left office, Pearson, under a new name, gave Obama a $65 million dollar book deal in return.

Pearson Publishing was paid for Common Core but Penguin Random House Publishing did the Obama book deal. But there is commonality with the two:

From Wikipedia:

Penguin Random House was formed on July 1, 2013, upon the completion of a £2.4 billion transaction between Bertelsmann and Pearson to merge their respective trade publishing companies, Random House and Penguin Group. Bertelsmann and Pearson, the parent companies, owning 53% and 47%, respectively.

In July 2017, Pearson agreed to sell a 22% stake in the business to Bertelsmann, thereby retaining a 25% holding.

That looks like a classic bribe. It certainly looks more like a bribe than President Trump asking his counterpart in a country rife with corruption to investigate clearly shady dealings.

You give me this big contract, and I’ll kick your share back to you at a later date. It’s called the Chicago Way. The book cash millions flowed to Obama in 2017, even though Pearson, incidentally, seemed to lose money anyway, given the public distaste for Obama’s disastrous Common Core curriculum, which extended to some states ditching the program.

President Trump saw what was happening in real time and voiced his warnings about the apparent quid pro quo last summer

It’s not the first time Obama has taken massive cash payments from companies he bestowed with benefits during his time in office.  IWB notes that Obama’s net neutrality stance benefited Netflix, and surprise, surprise, he received a very lucrative deal from the streaming platform, too.

One hand washes the other.

Book deals.  The way to get rich upon leaving public office, just as congressional insiders make themselves rich in public office by trading on insider information, as described by Peter Schweizer in Throw Them All Out.”

There are a hundred ways to Sunday for politicians to get rich both in and out of public office.  As the Democrat House now focuses on impeaching President Trump, their hypocrisy is pretty glaring.  Obama’s shady deals are what need investigating, not President Trump’s bid to halt corruption in Ukraine.

But Democrats across the country remain in thrall to Obama, completely captured by his bamboozle. As Carl Sagan wrote:

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.

Breaking News: Leader of ISIS has not been killed by U.S forces as recently reported

FLASHBACK 2016: SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY ADMITS PRESIDENT OBAMA INTENTIONALLY ARMED ISIS IN SYRIA – AUDIO RECORDING AND TRANSCRIPT

***

“On Sunday’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace pressed Vice President Mike Pence on why President Donald Trump did not notify House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in advance about the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Wallace said, “The president was asked specifically whether he had informed the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi about this raid last night, and he said no and then he added I wanted to make sure that no American forces were lost. The implication seeming to be that he was worried that Pelosi or members of Congress would leak this. Does the president not trust the Speaker of the House with sensitive national security information?”

(Click here to read more and listen to the video if you can stomach Chris Wallace.)

Dem Hopes Crushed as Michelle Obama Confirms ‘Zero Chance’ She’ll Run in 2020

Why do NPR and Barack Obama Follow Gay Sex Toy Twitter Accounts?

https://thelibertarianrepublic.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/PicsArt_01-28-11.24.16-690x450.jpg

Both NPR News and former President Barack Obama appear to follow a few interesting choice Twitter accounts.

Fleshjack, a gay sex toy manufacturer as well as an account called StudJulian are both followed by the news outlet and the former President.

https://thelibertarianrepublic.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Screenshot_20190128-231948.jpg

It’s unclear why they would be following these accounts, or if they were previously a different account whose handles and account ownership were changed.

We know Barack Obama flip-flopped multiple times on the LGBTQ issues for political expediency, but this seems pretty darn committed.

It is also worth noting that most political figures have staffers manage their Social Media accounts. This makes the link between NPR and Barack Obama all the more interesting, as this is a possible indicator that the same person had access to both NPR and Barack Obama’s Twitter accounts.

This presents a seeming conflict of interest where both the media and government are concerned. It opens up the possibility for Executive direction of the media, where NPR may not only be publicly funded, but also was a form of State Run Media under the Obama Administration.

Why Are Americans Afraid To Stand Up To Government?


Q. Why are we afraid to stand up to our Government?

A. Because this Government is not ours, it’s theirs. Obama, Soros, Clintons, Bush, Comey
Mueller, Rosenstein, Weissmann and thousands more. They own every agency, process and courthouse. You stand up alone and you will be cut down , NO mercy, NO rules at all. Remember Flynn, Ted Stevens, and Enron… TINVOWOOT, (there is no voting our way out of this)

Q. When will the people decide enough is enough?
A. Sadly, when they have no other choice. I do not advocate or preach violence, but the reality is this cannot be solved without conflict. I say this because the people who are in power in this country, will never peacefully surrender that power, and I mean never.

Q. Why do people think socialism/communism works?
A. Various reasons: for the recipient voter class, it does work for now. And they have not seen any reason to believe that it will every stop working. The government employee/voter class see this in much the same way and yes that means your teachers, your firemen, your police too; all three levels of government employees. For others it’s seems that the propaganda in schools and media and church is working. So the short answer is for a lot of people, socialism is great, at the expense of the producers. It seems that the only ones wise to this game are those of us who are being plundered.

Q. Why isn’t the Constitution followed?
A. Because it no longer exists. Even in the memory of the oldest people among us. A man that is eighty years old still has no clue about the type of freedom of the first generation in the US. The republic died well over 150 years ago. Why else would over half the states that formed the union wish to leave (so called civil war). So my answer is, no one anywhere can even imagine life in a constitutional republic. So, much to the dismay of Franklin, we did not keep it. I suppose it’s just too easy to vote other people’s property away from them and divide it up among ourselves.

Q. Why has it got to get worse before it gets better?
A. Apathy and fat, lazy, comfortable apathy.

Q. Why are people afraid to speak out?
A. For essentially the same reason as question #1. If you become a target, you will be prosecuted for “some” crime which you “have” committed.

Q. Why don’t people value freedom?
A. Americans no longer know what freedom is. Only a moral and religious people know what freedom is, and the USA is no longer that people. The godless think that freedom is about satisfying their sexuality or addictions without any consequences. Moreover, they also consider their dependency on others to be freedom, hence they want free healthcare, housing, etc. and other loot that can be plundered for them by the socialist regime.

Q. What will it take for you to fight?
A. Fighting in small numbers would be ineffective. The bottom line is this: the fight must be for real change, for real freedom, for real security; not just to replace one tyrant for another. Here are a few thoughts: what if 1,000 patriots in every state assembled themselves together and refused to obey or participate in any unconstitutional laws, taxation, regulation or judicial ruling. Now suppose that number would be 50,000 in every state. Let’s keep going with this. What if it were half a million people in every state. It’s not hard to see that all you need are numbers. But what you need long term will be more than numbers, because what you’re dealing with are killers, plain and simple.

The men who are in power have proven that they will lie, cheat, steal, rob, rape and kill to keep that power. So fighting means killing, plain and simple.

Let’s consider Washington and Madison and Paine. Did they talk and debate and resist to gain their freedom? To some degree, yes, they did. But ultimately they gained their freedom by killing the enemies of freedom and in sufficient numbers to make the most powerful and ruthless military on earth surrender. That’s a lot of dead bodies. So the final word is, it will take the numbers and the weapons and the determination, and most importantly, it will take the courage that only comes through a firm foundation in the principles of the Word of God.

Intel Operative who Altered Obama’s Passport Records Turned FBI Informant on Boss John Brennan, Then Turned Up Murdered in D.C.

https://i1.wp.com/truepundit.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/2018-07-18_10h47_21.png?fit=654%2C337&ssl=1

Update: 7.24.18 —  High-Ranking DC Metro Police Not Interested in Renewing Homicide Investigation. per conversations with True Pundit ***

A key witness in a federal probe into Barack Obama’s passport information stolen and altered from the State Department was gunned down and killed in front of a District church in D.C.

Lt. Quarles Harris Jr., 24, who had been cooperating with a federal investigators, was found late at night slumped dead inside a car. He was reportedly waiting to meet with FBI agents about his boss John Brennan.

Back in March 2008, the State Department launched an investigation of improper computer access to the passport records of Barack Hussein Obama, and days later those of Hillary Clinton and John McCain. The investigation centered on one employee: a contract worker for a company that was headed by Brennan, a key Obama campaign adviser who later became assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. Ultimately Brennan was appointed CIA director.

First, Obama’s passport records were accessed and altered. Then days later — likely to provide cover — Brennan’s private Intel company accessed Clinton’s and McCain’s records as the State Department had already flagged the Obama breach by that time.

Brennan’s company accessed and altered Obama’s passport BEFORE the 2008 presidential election, while Brennan was also working on Obama’s campaign team. After the election, Brennan took a job inside the White House.

A month after the passport breach the key witness in this case was murdered. Harris was shot in the head in his car, in front of his church.

Lt. Harris told federal investigators before he was murdered that he received “passport information from a co-conspirator who works for the U.S. Department of State.” What became of the “co-conspirator”? Why wasn’t he/she brought to trial?

There is no way to tell what might have been done to Obama’s passport records by those who accessed them.  Key information could have been altered or destroyed.  On April 8, 2008, after the breach became public, Obama confessed to having taken a trip to Pakistan in 1981.  The then-candidate said: “I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college.”  Journalist Jake Tapper was surprised and said: “This last part — a college trip to Pakistan — was news to many of us who have been following the race closely. And it was odd that we hadn’t hear about it before, given all the talk of Pakistan during this campaign.”

Did Obama confess to this trip, which he doesn’t mention in either of his autobiographies, because of the passport breach?

Or did Brennan simply erase the trip from Obama’s passport records through his role as CEO of Intel contractor Analysis Corp, where Brennan worked between his CIA career and Obama’s White House on Brennan’s journey to CIA head?

Only Brennan’s employee Lt. Quarles Harris knows. And the FBI.

And dead men tell no tales. Especially in D.C. Just ask Seth Rich.

And the FBI cannot be trusted.

Unsolved murder.

Case closed.

Clapper Ratting Out Obama Is An Extremely Important Development

https://s15-us2.startpage.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?url=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FYEES-MUS-eM%2Fmaxresdefault.jpg&sp=3477317a9bf8b5860d89346eb8c3355e
1. IMPORTANT: Clapper throwing Obama under the bus is an extremely important development.

Remember, though: he ISN’T referring to the FISA fraud being exposed 24/7, or the Mueller clownshow.

The scandal Clapper’s referring to is MUCH worse than either. Some thoughts.

2. The FISA fraud being exposed is, without a doubt, the most shocking abuse of power in US history. The FBI/DOJ used unvetted info, by-passing strict Woods verification, to illegally obtain a Title I FISA warrant on an innocent US citizen.

It can’t get any worse. Or can it?

3. Question for you:

Why would they need to get a FISA TI, when they’d already been spying on Team Trump (and other GOP candidates, not to mention Sanders), since 2015?

They wouldn’t, right? Unless, of course, the aim was to use the FISA to legitimize EXISTING illegal spying.

4. Don’t get me wrong.

This FISA fraud on @carterwpage is illegal, may end up destroying the FBI and will result in jail terms for those involved.

BUT it’s important not to keep our eyes off the larger scandal, that birthed it.

One leading directly to one man:

BARACK OBAMA.

5. Many forget that under the FISA Act, the Executive is given power to order WARRANTLESS SURVEILLANCE, with no judicial or Congressional oversight.

This power is restricted to targets OUTSIDE the US, communicating with persons INSIDE the US.

washingtonpost.com/world/national…

6. The FISA Act (2008), esp s 702, is no more than the legislative coding of an NSA program called ‘Stellar Wind’, a warrantless spying project, started by Dubya under The Patriot Act.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellar_W…

7. Obama expanded the power of the Executive under FISA, in 2012.

Stellar Wind went totally out of control, turbo-charged by NSAs PRISM Program, allowing the NSA to hoover up the explosion of data held by Google, Facebook & Yahoo (and others).

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRISM_(su…

8. We only know about PRISM due to Edward Snowden’s 2013 leaks.He also revealed the existence of the crown in the NSA surveillance jewel, a Division called ‘Special Source Operations’.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_S…

9. Frightened yet?

You should be.

Consider this. The SSO capability allowed it to collect data the equivalent of one Library of Congress – every 14.4 seconds.

And that was in 2006.

Snowden delivered a chilling warning, as well.

10. ‘The extent of mass data collection was far greater than the public knew and included what he characterized as “dangerous” and “criminal” activities.’

That was in 2014.

11. I’ve always been intrigued by this terrifying interview of the execrable Maxine Waters on Feb 11, 2013. In it she describes a secret database that Obama had built that’s ‘very, very powerful.’

12. SEPARATE from NSA.

Interviewer: ‘In terms of the ‘Organizing for America’ that he’s now shifting to become a 501C4 ?’

Waters: ‘That’s right..that database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.’

13. Obama LOVED spying on people.

But he would have HATED being spied on. I’m certain he built his own database.

A malign narcissist, the feeling of power, as well as the ability it gave him to manipulate and terrorize American citizens, would have been IRRESISTIBLE.

14. We KNOW that Obama was illegally spying on domestic targets (aka innocent Americans who disagreed with, or opposed him) from at least 2009.

15. Obama was illegally spying on reporters, too, including James Rosen (FOX), Sharyl Attkisson, Sean Hannity, Sara Carter and no doubt hundreds of others.

When all is revealed (it needs to be), we could be talking about many THOUSANDS of US citizens, inc members of Congress.

16. Among them would be Donald J Trump.

There’s absolutely no doubt about it. Trump and Obama LOATHE each other. Obama would have been keen to target and if possible, destroy Trump.

The 2016 election would be a perfect opportunity.

17. Another thing – NSA’s SSO team were PAYING Google, FB etc for their data.

I’m sure that Obama was paying friendly reporters to use the information he had, against Trump. BTW is Maggie Haberman back on twitter yet? Just askin’.

18. Back to the main argument.

IMO, Clapper is NOT talking about FISA abuse of Carter Page. He’s talking about Obama’s illegal abuse of exec power under FISA, to order warrantless surveillance, away from any oversight, to frame Trump.

If I go down, Obama, YOU go down too.’

19. The MO is becoming clear : use FISA to illegally unmask the ID of US citizens from overseas-sourced communications, then use those comms by leaking it to media slaves (many paid), as well as to frame political opponents.

THREE examples:

20. Papadopoulos – his main international with Mifsud, Millian, Halper and others? ALL overseas.

@DonaldJTrumpJr ? The Trump Tower meeting comms came from OVERSEAS actors.

@GenFlynn ? his comms with Russian Kislyak? Overseas.

Connecting dots?

21. So you have Obama’s warrantless surveillance being unmasked by his key apparatchiks (Rice, Power etc), shared with the Clinton campaign, funnelled via Fusion GPS into the Steele memos & leaked to media slaves.
22. Then legitimized AND augmented via Brennan’s CIA imprimatur & illegally obtained FISA warrants, engineered by a corrupt DOJ/FBI cabal.

The greatest crime in American history.

23. A conspiracy to frame & destroy an innocent citizen, designed and executed by evil, corrupt criminals.

Citizen Trump. Candidate Trump. POTUS-elect Trump. POTUS Trump.

It’s an ONGOING effort. One that is dangerous, but IS collapsing.

24. See, under FISA, POTUS can order warrantless spying on the recommendation of his AG & ODNI.

Those two would be AG Loretta Lynch – & who else?

Why, ODNI James Clapper.

Who is now DIRECTLY implicating one Barack Hussein Obama.

25. #SpyGate is REAL, folks, but it’s MUCH worse than this despicable FISA application.

Trump’s POTUS now. And he’s going to take down these crooks, starting with the FBI/DOJ gang.

Then he moves onto bigger fish. The good news?

He’s only getting started.

#MAGA

The end.

26. ADDENDUM: someone (thank you) sent me this incredible interview from 2010 about Obama’s malignant narcissism, by @samvaknin Sam Vaknin, himself diagnosed with NPD and a world expert in the area.

Well worth your time:

… and Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog.com gives his must watch take too

 

 

 

Clapper Admits Obama Was Behind The Ongoing Coup To Overthrow Trump

Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper admitted in a CNN interview Saturday that former President Obama instigated the ongoing investigations into Donald Trump and those in his orbit. 

Speaking with CNN‘s Anderson Cooper, Clapper let slip:

If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.

Recall in May, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) fired off a letter to the Department of Justice  demanding unredacted versions of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and former bureau attorney Lisa Page, including one exchange which took place after Strzok had returned from London as part of the recently launched “Operation Crossfire Hurricane”  referring to the Obama White House “running” an unknown investigation.

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/grass.jpg?itok=irtdIbtq

Strzok had been in London to interview Australian ambassador Alexander Downer about a drunken conversation with Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, who – after reportedly being fed information – mentioned Russia having Hillary Clinton’s emails. 

Strzok: And hi. Went well, best we could have expected. Other than [REDACTED] quote: “the White House is running this.” My answer, “well, maybe for you they are.” And of course, I was planning on telling this guy, thanks for coming, we’ve got an hour, but with Bill [Priestap] there, I’ve got no control….

Page: Yeah, whatever (re the WH comment). We’ve got the emails that say otherwise.

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/DaHUwCFX0AEY7Ot_0_0.jpg?itok=DYPjlThM

And with Clapper’s admission – it looks like Strzok’s text stating “the White House is running this” may have been right on the money.

Update: Meanwhile, House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) told Fox’s Maria Bartiromo that the American public needs to see an unredacted version of the Carter Page FISA application.

Civilian pukes can only imagine what’s in there…

BOOM! New Text Messages PROVE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE Was Involved in Early Stages of Trump-Russia Investigation (VIDEO)

Despite denials the Obama White House was involved with the early stages of the Trump-Russia investigation.

These text messages between Lisa Page and then-Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe were released today.

Lisa Page to McCabe: Just called.  Apparently the DAG now wants to be there, and the WH wants DOJ to host.  So we are setting that up now. We will very much need to get Cohen’s view before we meet with her.  Better have him weigh in with her before the meeting.

BOOM! Trump Accuses FBI Cheater Peter Strzok of Reporting to Barack Obama (VIDEO)

Why In The World Is Former President Obama Dressed As Satan?

A leaked picture of our former President dressed as Satan has gone viral this weekend. See what Barack Hussein Obama has been up to…

This picture of former President Obama has gone viral on the internet:

https://www.silverdoctors.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/1529208972_barrack-obama-satan.jpg

Here’s coverage from Hal Turner Radio Show:

An eerie image of former American president Barrack Obama dressed up in the attire of Satan has now gone viral on the internet. The image was originally uploaded on Instagram by Annemarie Hope, an artist known for illustrating Satanic churches in her profile.

The photo appeared with the caption, ‘Class and Grace, You are my favorite’, and it soon went viral on the online space. However, Hope soon deleted the photo for unknown reasons.

As Hope deleted the image, many of her followers asked why she had deleted the creepy photo, and she replied, “too much hate and not enough support”.

After the image went viral, skeptics apparently used various techniques to understand whether the image was edited by any means. However, even after applying various filters to the image to check its authenticity, these skeptics failed to find anomalies.

*****

Conspiracy theorists argue that Obama will not dress up like this for a fancy dress competition on Halloween. They also allege that the person standing next to Obama is Arthur Davis, an attorney and politician who served as a Democratic member of United States House of Representatives for Alabama’s 7th congressional district from 2003 to 2011.

Whether the picture is real or not is not the point. I think it could be real.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Satanic behavior on display by the globalists.

The Satanic agenda is really out in the open.

Sean over at SGT Report has been covering this type of evil behavior for years.

Here’s a recent video titled The Illuminati Luciferian End Game Revealed:

 

The rabbit hole is deep and full of all kinds of disgusting Satanic behavior.

People often talk about a war going on between Good and Evil.

They say we have a good guy in the White House.

I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.

I mean, there are pictures of Donald Trump openly displaying the Holy Bible:

https://www.silverdoctors.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/screen-shot-2016-01-30-at-11-17-55-am.jpg

So the side of Good seems to be making progress as Evil has cast dark shadows over our nation for quite some time.

Now if we could only bring some of the evil traitors who have been working against the United States to justice.

Pulse Nightclub Killer’s Father Was Decade-Long FBI Informant who Planned Terrorist Attacks Against Pakistan

No wonder he got primo seating at that Hillary rally

Testimony and court documents from the trial of Noor Salman – the widow of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, reveals that Omar’s father – who sat right behind Hillary Clinton at an August, 2016 campaign rally, was an FBI informant for over a decade.

Jurors in Salman’s trial heard from Miami-based FBI Special Agent Juvenal Martin – Seddique Mateen’s contact within the agency, while documents show the senior Mateen was trying to raise $50,000 – $100,000 through donations in order to conduct a terrorist attack against the government of Pakistan – a discovery made by the FBI following the June 12, 2016 massacre at the Pulse gay nightclub by 29-year-old Omar Mateen, killing 49 people before dying in a shoot out with police. 

Disturbingly, Omar Mateen was such a threat that his co-workers reported him to the FBI – who had his supervisor wear a wire to try and capture Omar bragging about connections to terrorism

Martin also testified about investigating Omar Mateen, after co-workers at the security firm G4S reported in 2013 that Mateen had made comments about being connected to Al Qaeda, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood. Martin had Mateen’s supervisor wear a concealed recording device. –Orlando Sentinel

The elder Mateen also made several money transfers to Turkey and Afghanistan between March 16, 2016 and June 5, 2016 – a week before the Pulse attack. 

A motion filed by Salman’s defense team on Sunday argued that the case against her should be dismissed because prosecutors didn’t share the fact that the senior Mateen was an FBI asset.

It is apparent from the Government’s belated disclosure that Ms. Salman has been defending a case without a complete set of facts and evidence that the Government was required to disclose,” attorney Fritz Scheller argued in the court filing.

U.S. District Judge Paul Byron said he would deal with the motion later. “I’m not going to address it right now,” he said. “It’s gonna take too much time.”

Did the FBI lie?

Journalist Jack Posobiec makes some interesting observations about the FBI response to the Pulse shooting, noting that in hindsight James Comey may have been lying through his teeth about what they knew. 

So much for a “scandal free” Obama administration…

MEDIA BLACKOUT: Obama Campaign Official Admitted Democrats Sucked the “Entire Social Network in US,” Kept the Data, Still Use It [VIDEO]

https://i1.wp.com/www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/carol-davidson-1.jpg

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is investigating whether Cambridge Analytica’s use of the personal data from 50 million Facebook users violated a consent decree the tech company signed with the company in 2011 before the 2016 election.

The Obama Campaign and Hillary Campaign also used Facebook and social media data to target voters in 2012 and 2016.

https://i0.wp.com/www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/carol-davidsen-facebook-.jpg

Carol Davidson, a former Barack Obama campaign official, admitted that the 2012 campaign led Facebook to “suck out the whole social graph” and target potential voters. They would then use that data to do things like append their email lists.

Now this…

Carol Davidsen also
admitted in a speech that Democrats sucked out “the entire social network of the US”, kept the data and still have it.

Carol Davidson was not the only Obama official to brag about the campaign’s use of social media data.

Obama Campaign Manager Jim Messina touted the 2012 campaign’s use of “targeted sharing” on Facebook to use supporters as a way to persuade their undecided friends and family to support Obama.

Messina bragged about the use of Facebook data by the Obama campaign in a speech in 2013.

SICK: Artist Who Painted Obama’s Official Portrait Known For Painting Blacks Beheading Whites

https://i1.wp.com/www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/180212-barack-obama-portrait-unveil-njs-1049a_610929c575975506b79a4420b6bf8707.nbcnews-ux-1024-900.jpg

The artist who painted former President Obama’s portrait for the Portrait Gallery, part of the Smithsonian Institution, has an interesting past. While reviewing previous works by artist Kehinde Wiley, it was discovered that he has a great fondness for painting black women beheading white women.

Both beheading pieces are titled “Judith beheading Holofernes”, referencing a story in the Book of Judith, which involves a beautiful woman who seduces an invading general before he is able to destroy their land, gets him drunk, and then decapitates him. Typical artists from the Rennaissance era have placed Judith in the role of a scriptural savior, “a type of the praying Virgin or the church or as a figure who tramples Satan and harrows Hell.” Given the historical context and how Wiley recreated it in his works, is hard to interpret his use of this theme as anything other than a blatant statement of racism; black women are the powerful angels of the earth, conquering the white devils.

https://i1.wp.com/www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/DV3CedHVMAAzCAx.jpg

Can you imagine for a second if any other former president, decided on a painter who was famous for depicting white people killing black people to paint his official portrait? It’s hard to imagine, right? Yea, that’s because it’s disgusting and backward.

Users on Twitter expressed reactions at commissioning an artist with such obvious racist leanings to paint the portrait of an American president:

Passengers Killed on Russian Airline Involved In Clinton-Obama Uranium One and Fake Trump Dossier Conspiracies

As most the world knows by now, a plane crashed in Russia Sunday morning a few minutes after takeoff, killing all 71 aboard.

https://i-invdn-com.akamaized.net/trkd-images/LYNXMPEE1A0LE_L.jpg© Reuters. A part of a Saratov Airlines Antonov AN-148 plane that crashed after taking off from Moscow’s Domodedovo airport, is seen at the scene of the incident outside Moscow

As Russian authorities released passenger names on the official Death list, several of those now-deceased names raised immediate “red flags” because they appear to be directly connected to the Hillary Clinton / Barack Obama UraniumOne Conspiracy and to the (fake) “Russian Dossier” used to smear President Trump.

Now that they’ve been caught, it appears to many that “the Deep State” is cleaning house and getting rid of any loose ends who might testify.

Sergei Millian, a Belarus-born businessman who briefly worked with the Trump Organization and was reportedly a key source in the explosive dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump and Russia, was in the spotlight following release of testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.

Glenn Simpson, who co-founded the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, told lawmakers that a trip Trump Organization representatives took to Moscow several years ago had come onto the firm’s radar as part of their research into Trump’s business history. The trip was organized by Sergei Millian, Simpson said. He said Millian “came up in connection with Chris’ work as one of the people around Trump who had a Russian background.” Chris is a reference to Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer hired by Fusion to research Trump’s Russia ties.

This Russian Businessman Sergei Millian goes by another name; Sergey Panchenko.

Sergey Panchenko just happens to be one of the dead passengers in today’s Russian plane crash that killed 71 people.

Also dead in today’s plane crash is Ivanov Vyacheslav the CFO of Rosatom who is involved in Hillary’s Uranium One deal with Russia back in 2009 under Barack Obama.

There are other names on the list which correspond to other persons in UraniumOne and in high-level Russian government circles such as Oil and Energy development. These names are being verified and additional news stories will be published about them.

For now, at least two people known to be directly involved the UraniumOne “deal” and the Russian Dossier are now apparently dead and cannot testify to anyone about anything. How convenient.

FBI Testimony: Moscow Routed Millions To Clinton Foundation For U.S. Uranium

  • Undercover FBI informant William Campbell has given written testimony to Congressional investigators after an “iron clad” gag order was lifted in October
  • Campbell was a highly valued CIA and FBI asset deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry while Robert Mueller was the Director of the FBI
  • Campbell was required by the Russians, under threat, to launder large sums of money – which allowed the FBI to uncover a massive Russian “nuclear money laundering apparatus
  • He collected over 5,000 documents and briefs over a six year period, some of which detail efforts by Moscow to route money to the Clinton Foundation
  • Campbell claims to have video evidence of bribe money related to the Uranium One deal being stuffed into suitcases.
  • The Obama FBI knew about the bribery scheme, yet the administration still approved the Uranium One deal.
  • To thank him for his service, Campbell was paid $51,000 by FBI officials at a 2016 celebration dinner in Chrystal City
  • When it emerged that Campbell had evidence against the Clinton Foundation, a Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff (of FISA warrant application fame) slammed Campbell as a “disaster” potential witness

An undercover FBI informant embedded in the Russian nuclear industry who was made to sign an “illegal NDA” by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch has finally given his testimony to three Congressional committees.  

William D. Campbell became an FBI counterintelligence asset after spending several years as a CIA operative who developed working relationships in the nuclear industry in Kazakhstan and Russia.

For several years my relationship with the CIA consisted of being debriefed after foreign travel,” Campbell noted in his testimony, which was obtained by this reporter. “Gradually, the relationship evolved into the CIA tasking me to travel to specific countries to obtain specific information. In the 1990’s I developed a working relationship with Kazakhstan and Russia in their nuclear energy industries. When I told the CIA of this development, I was turned over to FBI counterintelligence agents.” –saracarter.com

The FBI embedded Campbell in the Russian nuclear industry for six years, where he gathered extensive evidence of two separate but related “pay for play” schemes related to the United States uranium industry:

First, Campbell discovered that Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm, Transport Logistics International (TLI) in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act – which bribed a Russian nuclear official in exchange for a contract transport Russian-mined U.S. uranium, including “yellowcake” uranium secured in the Uranium One deal.

Second, Campbell says that Russian nuclear officials told him of a scheme to route millions of dollars to the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) through lobbying firm ARPCO, which was expected to funnel a portion of its annual $3 million lobbying fee to the charity. 

“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months. APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.“ –William Campbell

Campbell told Congressional investigators that the Uranium One deal along with billions in other uranium contracts inside the United States during the Obama administration was part of a “Russian uranium dominance strategy” involving Tenex and its American arm Tenem – both subsidiaries of state-owned Russian energy company Rosatom. 

“The emails and documents I intercepted during 2010 made clear that Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One – for both its Kazakh and American assets – was part of Russia’s geopolitical strategy to gain leverage in global energy markets,” he testified.  “I obtained documentary proof that Tenex was helping Rosatom win CFIUS approval, including an October 6, 2010 email …  asking me specifically to help overcome opposition to the Uranium One deal.” 

“Rosatom/Tenex threw a party to celebrate, which was widely attended by American nuclear industry officials. At the request of the FBI, I attended and recorded video footage of Tenam’s new offices,” he added.

Officials with APCO – the lobbying firm accused of funneling the money to the Clinton Global Initiative, told The Hill that its support for CGI and its work for Russia were not connected in any way, and involved different divisions of the firm. 

Bribery scheme

While undercover, the Russians forced Campbell to deliver bribes from Maryland transportation company TLI in $50,000 increments to Russian nuclear official Vadim Mikerin of Tenex. Campbell did so under the direction of the FBI in order to maintain his cover, fronting hundreds of thousands of dollars he says he was never reimbursed for.

As a result of Campbell’s work, TLI co-president Mark Lambert was charged in an 11-count indictment in connection with the scheme, while Vadim Mikerin, who resides in Maryland, was prosecuted in 2015 and is halfway through a four-year sentence.

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/2b3182d_1_1.jpg?itok=keOamGS4
Mark Lambert

Beginning at least as early as 2009 and continuing until October 2014, Lambert conspired with others at “Transportation Corporation A” to make corrupt and fraudulent bribery and kickback payments to offshore bank accounts associated with shell companies, at the direction of, and for the benefit of, a Russian official, Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure improper business advantages and obtain and retain business with TENEX. DOJ

Of note, Rod Rosenstein failed to interview Campbell before prosecuting Vadim Mikerin when Rosenstein was Maryland’s chief federal prosectuor, instead relying on the evidence Campbell had gathered. This backfired after prosecutors insisted on sitting down with Campbell to glean more information – forcing prosecutors to recast their entire case against Mikerin.

Campbell got one debriefing after the criminal charges were filed, but was never brought before the grand jury that indicted the Russian figure in November 2014 even though the informer was portrayed as “Victim One” in that indictment, the officials confirmed

When prosecutors finally interviewed Campbell more extensively in early 2015 and reviewed all of the records he had gathered for the FBI, they learned new information about the sequence of transactions he conducted while under the FBI’s supervision, as well as the extensive nature of his counterintelligence work for the U.S. government that went far beyond the Mikerin case and dated to at least 2006, the officials said. The Hill

Uranium One Approval

An extremely important aspect of Campbell’s timeline is that the Obama FBI , headed by Robert Mueller, knew of the bribery scheme with the transportation company before approving the Uranium One deal which would have utilized TLI for transporting the mined uranium. 

The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials.” The Hill

Thus, the Uranium One deal clearly never should have been approved.

Praising Campbell

Campbell testified that the FBI thanked him for his undercover with a check for $51,000 in 2016 – which, according to a November report, was given to him at a 2016 celebration dinner in Chrystal City, VA according to Campbell’s attorney, (former Regan Justice Department Official and former Chief Counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee), Victoria Toensing. 

“My FBI handlers praised my work,” testified Campbell. “They told me on various occasions that details from the undercover probe had been briefed directly to FBI top officials. On two occasions my handlers were particularly excited, claiming that my undercover work had been briefed to President Obama as part of his daily presidential briefing,” he testified 

Smearing Campbell

Following reports by John Solomon of The Hill and Sara Carter of Circa News revealing that Campbell had gathered evidence implicating the Clinton charity and the Obama administration, Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News wrote an article slamming Campbell – saying he would be a “disaster” as a witness because some of his claims could not be documented, an anonymous source told Isikoff.

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/2018.02.04isikoff_1.JPG?itok=SmRxjklUMichael Isikoff, Chief Investigative Correspondent at Yahoo News

And where have we heard Michael Isikoff’s name recently?

Another Yahoo News article written by Isikoff was used by the FBI as supporting evidence in a FISA warrant application by the FBI against one-time Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. Isikoff used information provided by former UK spy Christopher Steele – who assembled the infamous and unverified anti-Trump dossier which the FISA application was largely based on.

Isikoff says he was “stunned” to learn that his article was cited in the FISA warrant. We “believe” him. 

Sessions and Rosenstein were running Interference

And in a move which can only be interpreted as an effort to protect the FBI, the Obama administration and the Clintons, AG Jeff Sessions and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein even tried to suggest the nuclear bribery case uncovered by Campbell is not connected to the Uranium One deal

Via John Solomon of The Hill last November: 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions in testimony last week and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a letter to the Senate last month tried to suggest there was no connection between Uranium One and the nuclear bribery case. Their argument was that the criminal charges weren’t filed until 2014, while the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approval of the Uranium One sale occurred in October 2010.”

This rubbed several Congressional GOP the wrong way:

“Attorney General Sessions seemed to say that the bribery, racketeering and money laundering offenses involving Tenex’s Vadim Mikerin occurred after the approval of the Uranium One deal by the Obama administration. But we know that the FBI’s confidential informant was actively compiling incriminating evidence as far back as 2009,” Rep. Ron DeSantis, (R-Fla.) told The Hill, adding “It is hard to fathom how such a transaction could have been approved without the existence of the underlying corruption being disclosed”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a similar rebuke to Rosenstein, saying the deputy attorney general’s first response to the committee “largely missed the point” of the congressional investigations.

“Ask your politics”

When Campbell asked the FBI why all of the illegal schemes he uncovered weren’t being prosecuted, he was explicitly told it was political: 

“I remember one response I got from an agent when I asked how it was possible CFIUS would approve the Uranium One sale when the FBI could prove Rosatom was engaged in criminal conduct.  His answer: ‘Ask your politics,’ ” Campbell said.  

Since his undercover work in Russia, Campbell has undergone 35 intensive radiation treatments after being diagnosed with brain cancer and leukemia.

FBI ‘Lovers’ Texts Expose Obama Complicity: He “Wants To Know Everything We’re Doing”

New text messages between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have now been made public, and, as The Duran’s Alex Christoforou notes, the big reveal is that then-POTUS Barack Obama appears to be in the loop, on the whole ‘destroy Trump’ insurance plan hatched by upper management at the FBI.

https://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/inline-images/2018-02-07_5-49-14.jpg?itok=5cPy6G_y

The messages include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”

Fox News reports:

Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016 about prepping Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” Senate investigators told Fox News this text raises questions about Obama’s personal involvement in the Clinton email investigation.

In texts previously revealed, Strzok and Page have shown their disdain for Republicans in general, as well as Trump, calling him a “f—ing idiot,” among other insults.

Among the newly disclosed texts, Strzok also calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat “ignorant hillbillys.” (sic)

That text came from Strzok to Page on Nov. 4, 2015, the day after Jill McCabe lost a hotly contested Virginia state Senate election. Strzok said of the result, “Disappointing, but look at the district map. Loudon is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbilliys. Good for her for running, but curious if she’s energized or never again.”

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., along with majority staff from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, is releasing the texts, along with a report titled, “The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI’s Investigation of it.”

The newly uncovered texts reveal a bit more about the timing of the discovery of “hundreds of thousands” of emails on former congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop, ultimately leading to Comey’s infamous letter to Congress just days before the 2016 presidential election.

On Sept. 28, 2016 Strzok wrote to Page, “Got called up to Andy’s [McCabe] earlier.. hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner’s atty to sdny [Southern District of New York], includes a ton of material from spouse [Huma Abedin]. Sending team up tomorrow to review… this will never end.” Senate investigators told Fox News this text message raises questions about when FBI officials learned of emails relevant to the Hillary Clinton email investigation on the laptop belonging to Weiner, the husband to Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

It was a full month later, on Oct. 28, 2016 when Comey informed Congress that, “Due to recent developments,” the FBI was reopening its Clinton email investigation.

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday…” Comey said at the time.

The question becomes why Comey was only informed by his investigative team on Oct.  27, if the Clinton emails on Weiner’s laptop were discovered by Sept. 28, at the latest.

 

The latest batch of text messages between Strzok and Page show more examples of the Deep State opposition to Donald Trump, including a text sent on Election Day 2016 where Page wrote…

“OMG THIS IS F***ING TERRIFYING.”

Strzok replied to Page with a text saying…“Omg, I am so depressed.” Later that month, on November 13, 2016 Page wrote…

“I bought all the president’s men. Figure I need to brush up on watergate.”  

The next day on November 14, 2016, Page wrote…

“God, being here makes me angry. Lots of high fallutin’ national security talk. Meanwhile we have OUR task ahead of us.”

According to Fox News, Page’s meaning here is unclear, but Senate investigators say, coupled with Strzok’s August 15 text about an “insurance policy,” further investigation is warranted to find out what actions the two may have taken.

The last text is from Page to Strzok, and comes on June 23, 2017 when she wrote, “Please don’t ever text me again.”

It’s unclear whether she was mad at her friend, or if she suddenly became aware that they, and their thousands of texts, had been discovered.

Of course, none of this is surprising, but we are sure the new Democrat memo will clear up any misunderstandings.

Former Obama Foundation Manager Reveals That Obama Is Luciferian

Isaac Green has a channel on YouTube called “Anti School“. His Anti School is also carried on The Washington Pundit blog, as you can see in the blog’s banner

https://fellowshipofminds.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/washington-pundit-banner.jpg

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he doesn’t exist.

https://whiskeytangotexas.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/856d4-obamabaphomet.jpg

In a recent Anti School video, Green interviews a man who claims Obama is a Luciferian. The man’s visage is concealed from the camera for fear of his life, and is identified as the co-founder of Washington Pundit and a “former manager” of the “Barack Obama Foundation”. (H/t Voat)

Note: The Washington Pundit does not identify its founders or even its posts’ authors by name. The blog’s “About” page is a blank.

There are two Barack Obama Foundations:

(1) The non-profit Barack Obama Foundation in Chicago was created in January 2014 to oversee the creation of the Barack Obama Presidential Center (or library) and the construction of its campus, in partnership with the University of Chicago. Curiously, the center will not be part of the presidential library network operated by the National Archives and Records Administration.

The Foundation’s “leadership teammakes no mention of a “manager”. The team consists of:

  • David Simas, CEO
  • Robbin Cohen, Executive Director
  • Jordan Kaplan, Chief Development Officer
  • Michael Strautmanis, Vice-President of Public Engagement

The members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors are:

  • Marty Nesbitt, Board chairman and a longtime friend of Obama rumored to be the actual biological father of Obama’s daughters.
  • John Doerr, venture capital financier.
  • Thelma Golden, director and chief curator of Studio Museum in Harlem.
  • Mahalia Hines, board president of non-profit Common Ground Foundation and a former high school principal.
  • Glenn Hutchins, director of AT&T and of Federal Bank of New York.
  • Deval Patrick, former governor of Massachusetts.
  • David Plouffe, Democrat Party operative and Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign manager.
  • Penny Pritzker, Democrat Party donor; former Obama Administration Secretary of Commerce; founder/chairman of global investment firm PSP Capital and Pritzker Realty Group.
  • J. Kevin Poorman, president and CEO of PSP Capital Partners.
  • John Rogers, investment managers.
  • Michael Sacks, investment manager.
  • Juan Salgado, chancellor of City Colleges of Chicago.
  • Juliana Smoot, Democrat Party fundraiser and former White House staffer.
  • Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama’s half-sister.
  • Robert Wolf, founder/CEO of 32 Advisors.

(2) The non-profit Barack H. Obama Foundation in Virginia, which is about charity work for Kenya and unconnected to the construction of the Obama Presidential Center:

https://fellowshipofminds.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/malik-obama.jpg
Malik Obama

  • The founder of this foundation is Obama’s older half-brother, Abon’go Malik Obama. The two men share the same father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., but have different mothers; Malik’s mother was Obama Sr.’s first wife, Kezia. In the 2016 presidential election, Malik supported Donald Trump and attended the third Trump-Hillary debate as Trump’s guest. On March 9, 2017, Malik tweeted an image of Barack’s Kenya birth certificate.
  • The Barack H. Obama Foundation website makes no mention of a “manager”.

Here’s Isaac Green’s video:

#OBAMAGATE Interview with Barack H. Obama Foundation Manager

Green begins by saying that the Barack Obama Foundation is “a money laundering front” for “criminal activities”. This is what the interviewee (let’s call him Mr. X) said:

  • “I was the manager of the Barack H. Obama Foundation,” which was named after the father of Barack and Malik.
  • As manager of the foundation, Mr. X had worked with and was friends with Malik Obama who provided him with “all the intel” on former President Obama (henceforth, we’ll refer to him as “Barry”).
  • Malik “does not know” if Barry was born in the U.S. “Others” say Barry was born in Indonesia, and came to the U.S. on foreign exchange as “Barry Soetoro”. (Soetoro was the name of Barry’s Indonesia step-father, the supposed second husband of Barry’s mom.)
  • Malik said he’s “technically” Barry’s half-brother, but the two men actually have different fathers. In other words, according to Malik, Barry’s bio dad is not the Kenyan, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr.
  • Barry’s maternal family, the Dunhams, “is CIA” — his grandfather Stanley Dunham was in the U.S. military but worked as “an informant for the CIA”; Barry’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was a CIA “operative”; Barry’s real father was Frank Marshall Davis, “a Soviet spy who worked for the CIA”. (Note: Davis was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA.)

https://fellowshipofminds.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/pos-frankmarshalldavis.jpg
Obama (l); Frank Marshall Davis (r)

  • Barry himself is “in reality, a CIA operative through and through”. His real name is Barry Soetoro. (Note: Barry had registered at Occidental College as “Barry Soetoro”. It is rumored that his name at Columbia University was also “Barry Soetoro”.)
  • The CIA “forged” Barry’s Hawaiian birth certificate.

Note: According to InfoWars, Dec. 12, 2017, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigators discovered “bombshell” evidence that the CIA and/or other government entities had illegally hacked into Hawaii Department of Health records searching for birth records on Barack Obama.

  • As a “community organizer” in Chicago, Barry actually was “in charge of the Chicago mafia”. After Barry became POTUS, Rahm Emmanuel, the mayor Chicago, took over as head of the mob.
  • Both Obama Foundations are fronts for money laundering — the Barack Obama Foundation (that oversees construction of the Obama Presidential Center) and Malik’s Barack H. Obama Foundation, of which Mr. X claims to be a former manager.
  • Mr. X says Malik is a “good person” but not “on the good side” and that the foundation gets only $200 in donations a day. Malik has dual U.S.-Kenyan citizenship and lives in a Section 8 (government subsidized) apartment in Alexandria, VA. The enmity between Malik and Barry, and why Malik supported Trump, stems from Barry’s refusal to support, but actually “blocking,” Malik’s Barack H. Obama Foundation.
  • According to Malik, Barry is “completely different” and “the opposite” of his benign on-camera public persona.
  • Although he was raised a Muslim by his mother, Barry, i.e., former President Barack Obama, is not a Muslim. “He is a Luciferian,” i.e., a satanist — “he sacrifices children” and “does all the spirit cooking stuff you hear about in the Podesta emails”. Obama had “children brought to the White House all the time. The White House under Obama was an epicenter for child sacrifice.”

See “Spirit Cooking cannibalism and Obama’s bandaged middle finger

  • The $65,000 to fly “hotdogs” and “pizzas” from Chicago to the White House was “not food” because no outside food is allowed in the Obama White House because of his fear of being poisoned. But Mr. X said the $65,000 “hotdogs” and “pizzas” were “not children”.

See “Obama spent $65,000 to fly ‘pizzas’ & ‘hotdogs’ from Chicago

  • Obama took out Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi because Gaddafi wanted to create his own currency and refused to buckle to the West. Post-Gaddafi Libya is chaotic and has become a major venue of child and slave trafficking.
  • The Obama Administration “instigated” the Libyan, Egyptian and Syrian uprisings, of which only the uprising in Syria failed because of Syrian President Assad.
  • The CIA, “Obama’s handlers,” trained ISIS and the Taliban. Although Obama had not “founded” or created ISIS, he built them up with financing and weapons.

Note: The Obama Administration’s role in supplying weapons to ISIS is confirmed in the December 2017 report, Weapons of the Islamic State, the product of a 3-year investigation in Iraq and Syria.

  • On whether Michelle Obama is really a man, Mr. X thinks it’s “just a joke,” but the daughters Malia and Sacha are “actors”. Mr. X admits “I don’t have proof on that”.

If You Believe Donald Trump Is Satan, You Can Convince Yourself Of Absolutely Anything


Dan Bongino Has a Theory Devin Nunes Memo Contains References To Obama PDB’s and FISA Documents…


Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino appeared on Tucker Carlson TV show tonight to discuss the release of Chairman Devin Nunes intelligence memo.

During the segment Mr. Bongino highlighted his theory that Chairman Nunes memo not only holds references to the DOJ and FBI use of fraudulent FISA702 application evidence, but that the memo also contains compartmented intelligence exclusive to former President Obama’s Presidential Daily Briefings (PDB’s).  WATCH:

If true, this exclusive Bongino revelation could be explosive. Let’s explore.

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/dan-bongino-tucker-carlson.jpg

What exactly is “The Nunes Memo”? From all indications it is an outline written by senior intelligence committee staff, with major input from Devin Nunes describing evidence, people and events who conspired back in 2016 and 2017. In essence it is a summary of facts, that Chairman Nunes knows to exist.

No-one actually knows what the underlying supportive material is, because no-one, other than Chairman Devin Nunes, has seen the full material in the context of his reference.

People are *assuming* the memo is heavily written around FISA-702 issues and documents (FISA application, Steele Dossier, wiretaps, surveillance, intercepts etc.), but no-one actually knows what is behind the memo, other than Devin Nunes.  There could be much more than just FISA evidence.

Now, as we go forward with this we’ll be lost unless we have a full understanding of the March 2017 outline about “The Nunes Paradox” – SEE HERE Remember, the issue on March 22nd, 2017 was:

[…] Our research indicates that Chairman Devin Nunes, a gang of eight member, reviewed intelligence reports (most likely PDB’s) that were assembled exclusively for the office of the President (Obama). That is why he went to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (EEOB) Information Facility to review.

The intelligence product would be delivered to that SCIF system for his review, most likely by the ODNI. It would be removed from that SCIF system after his review. No systems are connected.

Nunes stated the intelligence product he reviewed was “not related to Russia, or the FBI Russian counter-intelligence investigation”. So the product itself was likely a product for the President, that was not part of the ongoing FBI counter-intel product.

Again, this is why it seems likely it was part of a PDB – unless it was a separate product, apart from the PDB, which was created for the Office of the President. [I view the latter as highly doubtful because it would be too risky for the President to be asking for specific ‘stand alone’ intel on something Trump.]

♦ Now, HERE IS WHERE YOU NEED TO PUT ON A “Politics only” FILTER.

Couldn’t Adam Schiff (another gang of eight member) go look at the same intelligence as Nunes did?

Yes. However, purely from the standpoint of politics: why would he?

If Representative Schiff saw the same intelligence that substantiates Nunes he couldn’t keep up the fake outrage and false narrative. Right now Schiff can say anything about it he wants because he hasn’t seen it. If Schiff actually sees the intelligence Nunes saw he loses that ability. He would also lose the ability to criticize, ridicule and/or marginalize Devin Nunes. (read more – Critical to understand)

Back in March and April 2017, it was more valuable, politically, at least initially, for ranking member Adam Schiff never to go look at the same information compiled within the Eisenhower SCIF for Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes to see.  Schiff did, eventually, go to see the information, but he waited a week to do so.

Absent of knowledge of the underlying evidence, Adam Schiff could say anything he wanted about Nunes and work to isolate him. Simultaneously, because the information was highly classified, Nunes could never explain it or defend himself. Thus Nunes was stuck in the compartmented intelligence box; that’s The Nunes Paradox.

Sneaky Schiff used a week of Nunes being in this boxed-in position, knowing Nunes could not defend himself, to demand Nunes step aside from the House Intelligence “Russia investigation”.  It worked.

However, all the way through to today no-one except Devin Nunes has any idea the totality of what Nunes actually witnessed in March 2017, and what he was later able to connect to that evidence after the FISA Court release (late April 2017) [Nunes could see unredacted FISC opinion], and also overlay evidence provided to the House Intelligence Committee.

However, we have an idea of the earlier evidence Nunes saw from his March 22nd, 2017,  statements and we can also overlay the FISA court information .

It is important to note here that President Trump nominated Senator Dan Coats as ODNI on January 5th, 2017 – however, Democrats held up that nomination until March 16th, 2017. It is not coincidental that immediately following DNI Dan Coat’s ability to provide information, Chairman Devin Nunes begins reporting his concerns.  It was also Dan Coats who declassified the FISA court opinion on April 28th, 2017.

After Devin Nunes review the information March 22nd 2017, Nunes stated the intelligence product he reviewed was: “not related to Russia, or the FBI Russian counter-intelligence investigation”.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes, then held a brief press conference and stated he has been provided intelligence reports brought to him by unnamed sources that include ‘significant information’ about President-Elect Trump and his transition team.  Later it was reported the incoming White House National Security Council may have assisted Nunes with information at the Eisenhower SCIF. 

WATCH:

1.) …”On numerous occasions the [Obama] intelligence community incidentally collected information about U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition.”

2.) “Details about U.S. persons associated with the incoming administration; details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value were widely disseminated in intelligence community reporting.”

3.) “Third, I have confirmed that additional names of Trump transition members were unmasked.”

4.) “Fourth and finally, I want to be clear; none of this surveillance was related to Russia, or the investigation of Russian activities.

“The House Intelligence Committee will thoroughly investigate surveillance and its subsequent dissemination, to determine a few things here that I want to read off:”

•“Who was aware of it?”

•“Why it was not disclosed to congress?”

•“Who requested and authorized the additional unmasking?”

•“Whether anyone directed the intelligence community to focus on Trump associates?”

•“And whether any laws, regulations or procedures were violated?”

“I have asked the Directors of the FBI, NSA and CIA to expeditiously comply with my March 15th (2017) letter -that you all received a couple of weeks ago- and to provide a full account of these surveillance activities.”

Again, this is why the intelligence reports seem likely to have been political opposition research -that was part of Obama’s PDB– unless it was a separate intelligence product, apart from the PDB, which was created for the Office of the President. [I view the latter as highly doubtful because it would be too risky for the President to be asking for specific ‘stand alone’ intelligence against political adversaries, ie candidate Donald Trump.]

Additionally, there is further evidence that surfaced a week after Nunes expressed his March 22nd, 2017 concerns. April 4th, 2017 Susan Rice appears:

With a general set of narrative ‘talking points’ in hand President Obama’s Former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, appeared April 4th, 2017, on MSNBC for an interview with Andrea Mitchell. This is the ‘We-Have-To-Respond-phase‘, to the push-back that was an outcome of Evelyn Farkas earlier statements on the same network.

Andrea Mitchell is considered a trustworthy ally of the Clinton/Obama political networks; as such, it is not a surprise to see Mitchell selected as the interviewer. Mitchell’s use of wording carefully guides Susan Rice through the narrow path of self-incrimination by providing plausible deniability for verbal missteps.

You already know the routine. MSNBC is the favorable proprietary venue. Mitchell plays the role of media-legal-adviser, her client is Susan Rice. Live interviews are always the greatest risk (see: Evelyn Farkas) The full interview is below:

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/susan-rice-4.jpg

However, that said, there are some interesting aspects to the interview:

Susan Rice @00:51 – …”Let me explain how this works. I was a National Security Adviser, my job is to protect the American people and the security of our country. That’s the same as the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense and CIA Director.; and every morning, to enable us to do that, we receive – from the intelligence community – a compilation of intelligence reports that the IC, the intelligence community, has selected for us –on a daily basis– to give us the best information as to what’s going on around the world.”

[Note, Susan Rice is describing the PDB]

“I received those reports, as did other officials, and there were occasions when I would receive a report in which, uh, a ‘U.S Person’ was referred to. Name, uh, not provided, just ‘U.S. Person’.

And sometimes in that context, in order to understand the importance in the report – and assess it’s significance, it was necessary to find out or request, who that U.S. official was.”

OK, so right there, in the very beginning of the forward narrative, Susan Rice is confirming the “unmasking” request(s) which can be pinned upon her, are directly related to her need to understand -on behalf of President Obama- intelligence for the President’s Daily Briefing (the PDB). This was a previous question now answered.

This is EXPLOSIVE, and here’s why.

Remember, the President’s Daily Brief under President Obama went to almost everyone at top levels in his administration. Regarding the Obama PDB:

[…] But while through most of its history the document has been marked “For the President’s Eyes Only,” the PDB has never gone to the president alone. The most restricted dissemination was in the early 1970s, when the book went only to President Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, who was dual-hatted as national security adviser and secretary of state.

In other administrations, the circle of readers has also included the vice president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, along with additional White House staffers.

By 2013, Obama’s PDB was making its way to more than 30 recipients, including the president’s top strategic communications aide and speechwriter, and deputy secretaries of national security departments. (link)

Pay attention to that last part. According to the Washington Post outline Obama’s PDB’s were going to: “top strategic communications aide”, Ben Rhodes, and “Deputy Secretaries of national security departments”.

In the interview, Susan Rice defined the Obama national security departments to include: “State” – “Defense” (Pentagon includes NSA) and “CIA”, “NSA” ‘ODNI’ etc….

So under Obama’s watch the list of recipients was massive and included Asst. Secretaries of national security departments like the DOJ-National Security Division (John P Carlin) and FBI Counterintelligence Division (Bill Priestap). Massive numbers of administration officials including the DOJ and FBI had access to the PDB.

See where this is going?

Susan Rice is admitting to “unmasking” names within intelligence reports to give her context for how they pertain to the overall briefing material. That briefing material is the PDB. That PDB goes to dozens of political people and political entities, including the DOJ and FBI units investigating candidate Donald Trump.

This is the widespread distribution of intelligence information that former Asst. Deputy of Defense, Evelyn Farkas was discussing. Now, we go back to Farkas’s March 2nd, 2017 MSNBC statement for additional context:

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/evelyn-farkas.jpg

“I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can – get as much intelligence as you can – before President Obama leaves the administration.”

Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out HOW we knew what we knew about their, the Trump staff, dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.

So I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more. We have very good intelligence on Russia; so then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew that they were also trying to help get information to the Hill. … That’s why you had the leaking”.

[Link to Farkas MSNBC Interview and Transcript]

That right there is the story. With dozens of people with access to President Obama’s PDB, Rice’s unmasking of the intelligence report names gave dozens of people direct access to unmasked intelligence – including Obama officials who could, perhaps did, use the PDB for specific and intentional political purposes, as outlined by Evelyn Farkas who was ultimately one of the recipients of the unmasked intelligence.

Additionally, that same material went directly to the people in the DOJ-NSD and FBI Counterintelligence who were conducting the “Trump Operation”.

The DOJ and FBI officials could comply with FISA-702 “minimization rules” (hiding of U.S. person’s names etc.) knowing full well that the unmasking could be done by the recipient of the FISA-702 source material, which would then be relayed back to the DOJ and FBI officials; the “small group”.

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/kathryn-ruemmler-lisa-monaco-susan-e-rice.png

If you know how concentric circle political safety is constructed, you will notice that Susan Rice was then hugging the security of the Presidency. To take Rice down amid all of this unmasking, means to take down President Obama – back in March 2017 this was a safe play on her part.

Reverse the safety. No-one in ideological media or allies in congress were going to allow President Obama to be taken down; ergo, everyone will protect Susan Rice and by extension President Obama. They had no choice.

Back to the interview and note how when shifting from rehearsed talking point (script) to cognitive explanation of Rices’ point , the noun shifts from “U.S. Person” to “U.S. Official”:

“I received those reports, as did other officials, and there were occasions when I would receive a report in which, uh, a ‘U.S Person’ was referred to. Name, uh, not provided, just ‘U.S. Person’.

And sometimes in that context, in order to understand the importance in the report – and assess its significance, it was necessary to find out or request, who that U.S. official was.”

It’s subtle (like a Freudian slip), but Rice accidentally outlines her filter, her psychological trigger, for when to request the unmasking. She’s looking for the politics behind the intelligence. She’s looking for “U.S. Officials” in masked intelligence reports.

Mrs. Rice then follows up with a “hypothetical example” that is ridiculous as she describes. The example provided (a sketchy dude in mom’s basement) would NEVER reach the level of PDB; it would be pre-filtered, researched and reviewed for value. The PDB NEVER contains such banal information as Rice describes.

The interview goes much further. There is a lot of news in this interview. There is also a tremendous amount of double-speak and self-contradiction; in some cases between sentences that follow each other.

Notice how Susan Rice contradicts herself about what the intelligence community puts into the PDB. Rice states the PDB intel community, those assembling the information, to be very specific: James Clapper (DNI), James Comey (FBI), John Brennan (CIA) and Defense Department (which would be the Pentagon and NSA Mike Rogers), and she states they would never send the President innocuous things unworthy of review (like a dude in mom’s basement):

Summary: In addition to the FISA702 material, and the material given by the current DOJ and FBI to Devin Nunes, there are strong indications the PDB material is part of the underlying information which backstops the Nunes Memo.

Devin Nunes, Admiral Mike Rogers and ODNI Dan Coats likely know exactly what Nunes has seen and where all of the underlying evidence is located. No-one else does, including Adam Schiff, despite having read the Nunes memo.

The important part of the House Memo release will be within the *footnotes* and *citations*, and the need to declassify that material will be the next phase in the sunlight.

Now we can see how Nunes brilliantly reversed the Paradox?

Treason: QAnon Exposes Obama/Hillary 16-year Coup d’état Plan (video)

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In an explosive post on Sunday, QAnon explained the Barack Obama/Hillary Clinton 16-year treasonous plan to use two White House terms for a coup d’état in the United States that would end up revising the Constitution, cancelling the Second Amendment, and opening borders to flood the nation with illegal immigrants calculated to vote Democrat for the foreseeable future.

In the exceptionally long post narrative, QAnon alleged that “Deep State” rogue operatives murdered Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia in an attempt to lock in a hard-left ideology on the nation’s highest court by giving President Obama one final Supreme Court nomination.

Posted initially on Scribd.com and tweeted throughout Sunday afternoon, Infowars.com’s Jerome Corsi published a line-by-line “DECODE” of the QAnon post seen here:

 

The following are key parts of the DECODE with regard to the importance of the “Nunes Memo” the House Intelligence Committee is expected to release this week:

QAnon: #Memo factually demonstrates collusion at highest levels.

Decode: The Nunes Memo made public will alert the American people to the Democratic Party coup d’état (undertaken in large part through Obama/Hillary/Podesta collusion with Russia).

Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Podesta (plus many others) are guilty of TREASON.  Hillary was right (Hillary’s tantrum after NBC commander-in-chief forum in September 2016 – “If we lose the election, we will all hang”).

* * *

QAnon: #Memo factually demonstrates HUSSEIN ADMIN weaponized INTEL community to ensure D victory [+Insurance].

Decode: The Nunes Memo when made public will prove the Obama administration weaponized the intelligence community to ensure the Democrats would win the 2016 presidential election.

The weaponizing included using the Fusion GPS dossier to get FISA court approval to conduct electronic surveillance on Donald Trump’s campaign.

Also included was President Obama’s plan to unmask and leak information detrimental to Trump’s campaign that was gained from the illegally obtained FISA electronic surveillance.

After McCabe communicates the Lisa Page “insurance” idea to Loretta Lynch, the HRC conspiracy develops as a pyramid structure, with Obama at the top calling the shots needed to use the Fusion GPS Dossier to get FISA court-ordered approval to conduct electronic surveillance on Donald Trump and principals in Trump campaign.  Other two legs of pyramid connect to the Clinton campaign through John Podesta and to the intel community via Clapper and Brennan.

CIA Director John Brennan – the CIA “handler” of Barry Soetoro, aka Soebarkah, aka Barack Hussein Obama – led the effort to sell the “Russia collusion” narrative to the mainstream media and the American public in order to prevent Donald Trump from serving out his term in office should he (unexpectedly) win the election.

 

The Obama/Hillary 16-year Coup d’état plan

QAnon makes clear Obama, Clintons, DNC, and the U.S. intelligence community planned their Coup d’état boldly, confident Hillary Clinton would be elected president, never imagining Donald Trump would win.

The Obama/Hillary Clinton “16-year plan to destroy America” involved the Democrats calculating both Obama and Hillary Clinton’s two term presidencies would allow the unfolding of a 16-year plan to destroy America.

As part of the plan, the Democratic Party co-conspirators envisioned Hillary would follow Obama’s plan to put rogue political operatives at key positions throughout the federal government, just as President Obama placed John Brennan at CIA; James Clapper, DNI; Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch as Attorney General; Valerie Jarrett in White House, James Comey at FBI – the list goes on.

Hillary would continue Obama’s plan to weaken the U.S. military, while actively funding Iran and North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons.

The only military commanders promoted by the Obama and planned Hillary Clinton administrations were to be those who: accepted the LGBT agenda and sex-change operations for transgender soldiers at taxpayer expense, were willing to eliminate any discussion of radical Muslims as terrorists, accepted a nuclear-armed Iran and North Korea, were willing to advance the Palestinian agenda to destroy Israel as a Jewish state, were willing to promote Muslim Brotherhood control throughout the Middle East and Africa.

An American nightmare under President Hillary Clinton

QAnon predicted that Hillary would use her 8 years as president to cause World War III – a war that would cause death and destruction on a massive, never-before-imagined scale of horror.

The war would be a “fake war” promoted by the government-controlled MSM. Billions of the world’s populations would be killed off, allowing the globalists (including Hillary, Obama, Podesta, and their co-conspirator minions) to pocket huge wealth on a global scale.

When the Obama/Hillary 16 years in the presidency were completed, the U.S. middle class would be destroyed.  The U.S. population (what was left of it) would be reduced to a status of enslavement, starvation, death, and disease.

When the Obama/Hillary 16 years in the presidency were completed, the U.S. would have no borders, the Constitution would be revised to remove the Bill of Rights and all fundamental U.S. freedoms, and the population would be disarmed by the repeal of the Second Amendment.

When the Obama/Hillary 16 years in the presidency were completed, there would be no electoral college.

Future presidents would be elected by a majority of the popular vote, giving control to large states like California, New York, and New Jersey that can easily be overrun with illegal immigrants voting for the traitors and their anti-American conspiracy.

If illegal votes were not enough to make sure the Democratic Party traitors dominated all elections, George Soros would be allowed to install voting machines to make Democratic Party voter fraud easy to achieve electronically.

When the Obama/Hillary 16 years in the presidency were completed, the U.S. military would comprise a very small percentage of the U.S. budget, with transfer payments making sure excessive taxation redistributed income to minorities and illegals sure to vote for the Democratic Party traitors.

U.S. military bases would be closed worldwide, beginning in Germany.  Russia, China, and rogue states including Iran and North Korea would no longer need fear U.S. military reprisals for their evil expansion.

Only “Project Mockingbird” PRAVDA-like mainstream media willing to be controlled by the CIA to disseminate the Obama/Hillary traitors’ anti-American ideology would be allowed to survive.

All other news would be censored, with Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other Internet giants unleashed to eliminate from “Social Media” even the most private or coded communications patriots might attempt.

Barack Obama, the Clintons, and their “Deep State” Democratic Party co-conspirators are “pure evil,” capable of nuclear war to achieve their globalist goals.

Trump Prepares GITMO For VIP Prisoners

President Trump has ordered Guantanamo Bay Navel Base to prepare for incoming VIP prisoners, including American politicians, within the next few months.

https://i1.wp.com/cdns.yournewswire.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/guantanamo-678x381.jpg?zoom=2

According to a Military of Defense report, Trump is preparing to transfer an unknown number of ‘VIP’ American detainees to the notorious prison in preparation for their trials before a US Military Tribunal. Reports suggest that people connected to the Uranium One scandal are being placed in custody in preparation for the trials. Hundreds of US Army Military Police have also been deployed to Cuba to help oversee the process.

According to the DoD report,  while conducting routine training missions in Cuba, intercepted an unusually large number of encrypted communications emanating between the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base (Cuba) and Luke Air Force Base (Arizona)—immediately after which they made a request to SVR counterintelligence analysts for an explanation of—with the SVR, in turn, then reporting to SCT that these communications were being conducted between the Guantanamo Military Commission (that holds US Military Tribunals) and US Attorney Generals Jeff Sessions.

On 11 April 2017, also, this report says, the SVR reported to SCT that Attorney General Sessions was at Luke Air Force Base to “hold/conduct” meetings with various commanders of the Arizona Army National Guard (AZ ARNG)—with the longest of them being with the commanders of the 850th Military Police Battalion—that numbers nearly 800 highly trained and specialized US Army Military Police forces.

Since its beginning on 11 April 2017, this report continues, SCT intercepts of communications between Guantanamo Bay Naval Base and Luke Air Force Base continued on an unprecedented basis—with the largest amount of such communications being reported on 7 July 2017—and was the date Attorney General Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made an unannounced visit to the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base—and whose meetings there on that date included the commanders of the 850th Military Police Battalion who had been flown there the day prior.

The specific type of communication intercepts noted by SCT occurring between Guantanamo Bay Naval Base and Luke Air Force Base, this report details, were encrypted video satellite broadcasts transmitted at the North American standard rate of 59.94 frames per second—and whose near predictable times of transmission suggested (to SVR analysts) that these video broadcasts were being used for classroom instruction.

On 21 December 2017, this report further notes, SCT reported that nearly all of these communications between Guantanamo Bay Naval Base and Luke Air Force Base had ceased—with the SVR reporting that this cessation occurred when US Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis made an unprecedented-unannounced visit to Guantanamo—the first visit there by a US Defence Secretary in nearly 16 years—and that in doing, Secretary Mattis shockingly broke with the longstanding tradition of persons holding his high office visiting American troops on the front lines—but that he deemed his sudden visit to Guantanamo was vitally more important than.

And as to how “vitally important” Secretary Mattis deemed his unprecedented visit to Guantanamo, this report says, became known yesterday, 29 December 2017, when President Trump suddenly ordered the entire 850th Military Police Battalion to immediately deploy from Luke Air Force Base to Guantanamo Bay Naval Base.

With the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp holding only 41 detainees, but able to hold nearly 800, this report notes, President Trump’s suddenly ordering there such a large number of US Military Police forces requires a further explanation as to why—and which the SVR says can be found in the equally sudden activity of the secretive IBC Airways—and whom, upon President Trump’s ordering the 850th Military Police Battalion to immediately deploy to Guantanamo, announced, on 29 December 2017, that it is increasing its flights to Naval Station Guantanamo Bay to three times a week—thus highly suggesting its anticipation of a flood of visitors there—most likely to include American attorneys defending their soon to be imprisoned traitorous clients.

FBI Uncovered Russian Bribery Plot Before Obama Approved Uranium One Deal, Netting Clintons Millions

https://i0.wp.com/www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user230519/imageroot/2017/10/17/2017.10.17%20-%20Clinton%20Cash_0.JPG

As the mainstream media continues to obsess over $100,000 worth Facebook ads allegedly purchased by Russian spies in 2016 seeking to throw the presidential election, we’re almost certain they’ll ignore the much larger Russian bombshell dropped today in the form of newly released FBI documents that reveal for the very first time that the Obama administration was well aware of illegal bribery, extortion and money laundering schemes being conducted by the Russians to get a foothold in the atomic energy business in the U.S. before approving a deal that handed them 20% of America’s uranium reserves…and resulted in a windfall of donations to the Clinton Foundation.

As we pointed out last summer when Peter Schweizer first released his feature documentary Clinton Cash, the Uranium One deal, as approved by the Obama Administration, netted the Clintons and their Clinton Foundation millions of dollars in donations and ‘speaking fees’ from Uranium One shareholders and other Russian entities.

Russian Purchase of US Uranium Assets in Return for $145mm in Contributions to the Clinton Foundation – Bill and Hillary Clinton assisted a Canadian financier, Frank Giustra, and his company, Uranium One, in the acquisition of uranium mining concessions in Kazakhstan and the United States.  Subsequently, the Russian government sought to purchase Uranium One but required approval from the Obama administration given the strategic importance of the uranium assets.  In the run-up to the approval of the deal by the State Department, nine shareholders of Uranium One just happened to make $145mm in donations to the Clinton Foundation.  Moreover, the New Yorker confirmed that Bill Clinton received $500,000 in speaking fees from a Russian investment bank, with ties to the Kremlin, around the same time.  Needless to say, the State Department approved the deal giving Russia ownership of 20% of U.S. uranium assets 

Now, thanks to newly released affidavits from a case that landed one of the Russian co-conspirators, Vadim Mikerin, in jail, we learn that not only was the Obama administration aware the Russians’ illegal acts in the U.S. but it may have also been fully aware that “Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow.”  Per The Hill:

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

Of course, when Schweizer’s book first made Uranium One a political hot topic in 2015, both the Obama administration and the Clintons defended their actions and insisted there was no evidence that any Russians or donors engaged in wrongdoing and there was no national security reason for anyone to oppose the deal.  That said, we now know that the FBI was aware of wrongdoing going back to at least April 2009 even though the deal wasn’t approved until October 2010.

But FBI, Energy Department and court documents reviewed by The Hill show the FBI in fact had gathered substantial evidence well before the committee’s decision that Vadim Mikerin — the main Russian overseeing Putin’s nuclear expansion inside the United States — was engaged in wrongdoing starting in 2009.

The first decision occurred in October 2010, when the State Department and government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States unanimously approved the partial sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russian nuclear giant Rosatom, giving Moscow control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.

In 2011, the administration gave approval for Rosatom’s Tenex subsidiary to sell commercial uranium to U.S. nuclear power plants in a partnership with the United States Enrichment Corp. Before then, Tenex had been limited to selling U.S. nuclear power plants reprocessed uranium recovered from dismantled Soviet nuclear weapons under the 1990s Megatons to Megawatts peace program.

And guess who ran the FBI’s investigation into this particular Russian plot?  As The Hill notes, the Mikerin probe began in 2009 under Robert Mueller, now the special counsel in charge of the Trump case, and ended in late 2015 under the controversial, former FBI Director James Comey who was relieved of his duties by President Trump.

Ironically, when the DOJ finally arrested Mikerin in 2014, following 5 years of investigations in a massive international bribery and money-laundering scheme, rather than publicly celebrate, they seemingly swept it under the rug.  In fact, there was no public release concerning the case at all until a full year later when the DOJ announced a plea deal with Mikerin right before labor day.

Bringing down a major Russian nuclear corruption scheme that had both compromised a sensitive uranium transportation asset inside the U.S. and facilitated international money laundering would seem a major feather in any law enforcement agency’s cap.

But the Justice Department and FBI took little credit in 2014 when Mikerin, the Russian financier and the trucking firm executives were arrested and charged.

The only public statement occurred an entire year later when the Justice Department put out a little-noticed press release in August 2015, just days before Labor Day. The release noted that the various defendants had reached plea deals.

By that time, the criminal cases against Mikerin had been narrowed to a single charge of money laundering for a scheme that officials admitted stretched from 2004 to 2014. And though agents had evidence of criminal wrongdoing they collected since at least 2009, federal prosecutors only cited in the plea agreement a handful of transactions that occurred in 2011 and 2012, well after the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States’s approval.

The final court case also made no mention of any connection to the influence peddling conversations the FBI undercover informant witnessed about the Russian nuclear officials trying to ingratiate themselves with the Clintons even though agents had gathered documents showing the transmission of millions of dollars from Russia’s nuclear industry to an American entity that had provided assistance to Bill Clinton’s foundation, sources confirmed to The Hill.

Perhaps this is what the “most transparent” President in history meant when he told Medvedev that he would have “more flexibility” after his 2012 election.

BREAKING NEWS: Senate Judiciary OPENS PROBE into Clinton-Obama era Russian nuclear bribery case …


The Obama Administration’s Uranium One Scandal

Obama’s Presidential Library Won’t Actually Have Any Library Materials

https://media.townhall.com/townhall/reu/ha/2017/132/72d56848-f038-400f-84d1-6905492ee09c.jpg

Unlike traditional presidential libraries, the Obama Presidential Center will not actually have library materials. That is—it will not house former President Obama’s manuscripts, documents, letters, and gifts from his tenure in office—items presidential centers around the country all have. 

Instead, it will include space for outdoor functions and picnics, a basketball court, recording studio, sledding hill, children’s play garden, and more. 

As for the actual library documents, the center will rely online archives for Obama’s presidential materials as a way to avoid meeting federal standards in construction, raising money for an endowment, and paying the National Archives and Records Administration to run the facility.

“This is going to be completely different,” said Foundation CEO David Simas, reports The Chicago Tribune. “What the president and first lady said … is they simply did not want a museum that served as a mausoleum, as a way to look back.”

Traditionally, Presidential Libraries are places where historians, academics and college students travel to dig through paperwork and hold the first drafts of speeches, letters and legislation in their hands. But without those papers on site, some have begun to ask whether the Obama Center can even attract researchers to the University of Chicago, Chicago State University or the University of Illinois. What will it mean to have those documents online rather than in a physical form for inspection? And with digital technology constantly changing, how will the National Archives and Records Administration ensure the documents will be placed online in a timely manner and accessible over time? […]

Currently, Obama’s papers are stored in a private facility — a handsome and sprawling, bright white brick building on a commercial strip on West Golf Road in suburban Hoffman Estates. Officials initially thought the papers would be kept in Chicago. But after they spent $300,000 to ship Obama’s documents to the Chicago region and about $223,000 a month to store and provide security for tens of millions of textual records, artifacts and audio visual materials here, they decided to ship them back to Washington once a decision is made on where to keep them permanently, a spokeswoman with the National Archives and Records Administration said.

The classified documents will be housed in an existing facility in Washington, D.C., the spokeswoman said. The non-classified papers will likely be placed in an existing NARA facility in a Washington suburb. (Chicago Tribune)

“Here’s how it will be attractive: through the forums, workshops and programs they conduct,” James Rutherford, the dean of the William J. Clinton School of Public Service, told the Chicago Tribune. “They can host conferences with administration officials, discussions on how Obama approached health care, how he developed the DACA executive order. That’s how the center will become a research institution.”

Proponents argue archiving everything online will make the library more accessible to everyone across the country. 

Adrena Ifill, the managing partner of Washington, D.C.-based DoubleBack Global Group, a cultural heritage firm, said the move online “is in line with his legacy.”

“Obama has been a game-changer from the beginning. If you see the presidential libraries of current living presidents, you’ll see how those centers have evolved,” she said, reports the Chicago Tribune. “Going digital is a natural progression of lessons learned from those entities.”

The Obama Presidential Center still has roughly four years before doors open.

New Study: Cheapest Obamacare Plans Are “Unaffordable” In 94% Of American Cities

We’ve frequently warned that Obamacare is locked in an inescapable death spiral that will result in its inevitable failure.  The problem is that the folks who make too much to qualify for subsidies (currently defined as roughly $80,000 for a family of 3) are increasingly being priced out of the market for individual insurance by Obamacare’s 30%+ price hikes that consistently come year after year.  Meanwhile, those “rich” families making $80,000 a year are the ones expected to overpay for their health insurance so that a portion of their premiums can be “spread around a little bit” (as Obama likes to say) to subsidize the premiums of others.  Of course, it’s easy to see the circularity here as higher premiums equals less “full-paying” customers and less subsidies equals higher premiums…until the whole system collapses.  

Luckily you no longer have to take our word for it as eHealth.com has just published a new study that finds that, even by Obamacare’s own definition of “affordability”, residents in 47 out of 50 cities surveyed can’t afford the cheapest Obamacare plan.

According to a study released today by eHealth, Inc., which operates eHealth.com, the average family of three earning slightly too much to qualify for subsidies in 2018 would need to increase its household income by nearly $29,000 before health insurance became “affordable” based on Obamacare criteria.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) considers health insurance to be “unaffordable” when annual premiums for the lowest-priced plan in a market cost more than 8.16% of a household’s modified adjusted gross income (or MAGI). When health insurance is unaffordable by this standard, individuals and families may qualify for an exemption from Obamacare’s individual mandate to buy health insurance.

“Coverage under the Affordable Care Act is becoming seriously unaffordable for many families, even by Obamacare’s own rules,” said eHealth CEO Scott Flanders. “I find it hard to believe that the framers of the law ever intended the cost of family health insurance to rival that of a second mortgage. Without the introduction of lower-cost options into the market or expanded government subsidies, many middle-income Americans are in danger of being priced out of the health insurance market entirely.”

https://i2.wp.com/www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user230519/imageroot/2017/09/29/2017.09.29%20-%20Obamacare%20Img_0.JPG

Meanwhile, if anything, the study conducted by eHealth was somewhat conservative as it only assumed a 10% premium increase in 2018.

In preparing its analysis, eHealth reviewed the lowest-price 2017 plan available for families of three comprised of two adults age 35 and one child. The same family model was analyzed using data from Healthcare.gov in 40 cities, data from eHealth.com in 9 cities not utilizing Healthcare.gov, and data from the New York state exchange for New York City.

After applying a relatively modest annual rate increase of 10% to 2017 rates to project 2018 rates, eHealth discovered the following:

  • In 47 of 50 cities surveyed, the lowest-priced plan would be officially unaffordable under Obamacare affordability standards for families earning 401% of the federal poverty level (about $82,000 per year in the contiguous US, making them ineligible for Obamacare subsidies).
  • Among these, the average three-person household would need to earn an additional $28,939 per year before the lowest-cost plan becomes affordable according to Obamacare rules.

To put eHealth’s findings in perspective, a family of 3 in Charlotte, NC, with an annual income of $81,884, would have to spend 18% of their gross income in 2018 just to purchase the cheapest Obamacare plan for their family.  On a post-tax basis, that expenditure would be well over 20%.  Moreover, as eHealth points out, that family of 3 would have to find a way to make an extra $102,245 per year to meet the “affordability” test included in the Obamacare legislation.

Here’s how other cities compared on Obamacare “affordability”:

Steve Bannon famously said, “If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you’re sadly mistaken.” This is a long war. The alt-right would be wise to think about how to win a long, low grade culture war. That means building up the intellectual and cultural side, while also systematically throwing sand in the gears of the colonial machine. The path to victory is to make neo-liberalism too expensive to maintain and too unappealing to support.

Michelle Obama Top School Lunch Ally Charged with Embezzlement

https://i2.wp.com/media.breitbart.com/media/2017/08/Binkle-Michelle-Obama-collage-ap-getty-640x480.jpg

A top school lunch reformer for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), who received praise from former first lady Michelle Obama, has been charged with 15 felony counts, including embezzlement and misappropriation of public funds.

David Binkle, 55, a former chef who ultimately oversaw a budget of hundreds of millions of dollars as he implemented Michelle Obama’s school lunch program in the LAUSD, pleaded not guilty to all the counts during an appearance in court on Tuesday and posted $220,000 bail, reports the L.A. Times.

Prosecutors allege that Binkle – who railed against childhood obesity with appearances on Tedx Talks – illegally directed about $65,000 of the school district’s funds into his private consulting firm, some of which eventually ended up in his own pocket.

The news report continues:

According to court documents, Binkle repeatedly misappropriated district funds in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 between 2010 and 2014. Prosecutors also allege that he forged an application to become a vendor with the district and failed to disclose outside financial interests.

Binkle, who became known for his use of the phrase “nasty, rotty” food, led the former first lady’s unpopular school lunch reform in the district even as students established their own black market of favorite – albeit “unhealthy” – foods.

In his efforts to implement the school lunch reform, Binkle offered lengthy contracts to providers such as Tyson Foods Inc., Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales, Goldstar Foods, and Five Star Gourmet Foods. Some of the vendors also agreed to annual donations of $500,000 to a healthy eating marketing program in the school district.

Problems with Binkle’s management, however, were noted as early as 2011 by George Beck, a former food-services deputy branch budget director, who reportedly brought his concerns to the district but was ignored and then laid off.

Nevertheless, in 2014, the LAUSD’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) accused Binkle of failing to disclose his ownership of California Culinary Consulting or payments from vendors who appeared at school nutrition events.

The OIG audit noted his firm presented “at minimum an appearance of a conflict of interest,” and his marketing program was “being mismanaged and at worst being consistently abused” by Binkle, who said he was “frustrated and baffled” by the allegations.

“I have done nothing wrong and have nothing to hide, since my actions were approved and encouraged from senior district officials, general counsel or the ethics office,” Binkle emailed the Times. “I am confident the truth and facts will show the allegations are unsubstantiated.”

Beck, however, reportedly said Binkle’s activity was a symptom of larger problems within LAUSD:

He negotiated these contracts with these firms with no oversight, nobody else participating. It was a huge procurement bureaucracy. There was one contract for vegetarian entrees, and I remember sitting in a meeting with 35 people. Binkle was there. He had one entrée that was $2.25 per item, and our reimbursement was less than the cost of the meal. Every meal that we sold, we were losing money.

Beck added he was surprised it took so long for prosecutors to uncover the problems with Binkle.

“All these internal control entities that were supposed to be exercising internal control were not doing it,” he said. “I brought it to their attention, and they did nothing about it.”

“While recognizing that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, the charges against Mr. Binkle are extremely upsetting as they do not reflect the professionalism, ethics and character we expect of all L.A. Unified employees,” the school district said in a statement.

In October of 2014, Breitbart News also reported a major scandal in the LAUSD in which former superintendent John Deasy – a former employee of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – resigned after pushing a $1.3 billion iPad buy for every child in the district from joint sellers Apple and Pearson, the latter of which had designed a companion iPad curriculum. The program was a huge failure and led to further scrutiny of Deasy’s close personal ties with Apple and Pearson.

In 2015, Deasy ultimately joined a training academy funded by one of his supporters, philanthropist Eli Broad. He became a consultant and the superintendent-in-residence for the Broad Academy, which trains urban public education leaders.

Death Spiral: 6.5 Million People Choose To Pay Tax Rather Than Buy Obamacare

For those who still aren’t convinced that Obamacare is trapped in an inescapable death spiral that will inevitably end in nothing short of an epic collapse of the federal and state health insurance exchanges, perhaps you should consider the following facts from the National Review and Mark Farrah and Associates.

–  Four heavily promoted open enrollments have taken place run by the Obama administration and the state exchanges.

–  Federal law has required people to purchase insurance or pay a fine — and the individual mandate was administered through 2016 by the Obama administration. In fact, in 2015, 7.5 million people paid the fine, while 6.5 million paid the fine in 2016, according to the IRS.

–  Every one of the people in the insurance market earning less than 400 percent of the federal poverty level were eligible for premium assistance — and those below 250 percent of the poverty level were also eligible to have their deductibles and co-pays subsidized.

–  After all of this, only about 40 percent of those eligible for subsidies have signed up for coverage. In what other business or government program would such a dismal acceptance by those it was targeted to serve be considered a success?

–  The number of insurance companies participating is on track to shrink by 38 percent in 2018.

And then there is the chart below…if people really saw “value” in Obamacare wouldn’t you expect that more than 2% of the people who don’t qualify for subisidies would sign up?

Finally, I will suggest the real test of whether a health-insurance program is stable is whether the consumers for whom it is intended believe that it provides them with value. Here is a chart of the take-up rate on the federal exchanges under the Affordable Care Act; excluding the “Over 400%” category, all of these individuals are eligible for subsidies. This chart represents data from last year, but with only a 4 percent reduction in those purchasing on the exchanges between 2016 and 2017, it should remain a fair indication of consumer approval of the program.

The health-insurance industry has long considered a 75 percent take-up rate to be the gold standard in evaluating whether an insurance pool is stable — i.e., whether there are enough healthy people signed up to pay the claims of the sick. While the exchanges appear to have achieved this for the lowest-income consumers — those who get the biggest premium subsidies and also have their out-of-pocket costs subsidized — only 17 percent of those making 301 to 400 percent of the poverty level have signed up.

https://i1.wp.com/www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user230519/imageroot/2017/08/09/2017.08.09%20-%20OCare1.JPG

Still not convinced, how about this?  The “off-exchange market” (i.e. people who make too much money to quality for subsidies and whose premiums are required to subsidize everyone else who does qualify) contracted by 2.1mm in 2016, or a 29% drop.  With those kind of declines, it’s only a matter of time until there are no more rich fools in the pool willing to continue subsidizing a broken system.

Also, MFA published the same report in 2016, facilitating a year-over-year comparison. The on-exchange market fell from 12,681,874 to 12,216,003 individuals, a reduction of 465,871 or 4 percent. However, the off-exchange market fell from 7,520,939 to 5,361,451, a reduction of 2,159,488 or 29 percent. In other words, enrollment is steady among those who receive subsidies but declining dramatically among those who do not.

Much has been made of the question of whether the individual markets are in a “death spiral.” Given that the on-exchange market enrollment is relatively stable, there is clearly not a death spiral in the subsidized market. However, with a reduction in the unsubsidized market of 29 percent in just one year, that pattern certainly looks like one we would expect in a market spiraling down.

Meanwhile, of course, that 29% drop exactly why insurance companies are expected to hike their rates by 20-40% in certain markets again in 2018…

…and why rates have soared an average of 113% over the past 4 years, or nearly 30% per year.

Covered California Plans To Jack 2018 Premiums Up 12.5%

Covered California announced this week that its 2018 rates will increase about eight times faster than the rate of inflation, as the Obamacare law and the state’s liberal legislature continue to destroy private insurance in California.

Despite the latest United States Department of Labor Consumer Price Index for the month of June estimating that inflation rose by only 1.6 percent over the last twelve months, Covered California, Obamacare for the state, just announced that the average health insurance premiums on the California insurance exchanges would rise by 12.5 percent, or about 7.81 times faster than the rate of inflation.

Covered California’s spiking prices are actually a relative bargain compared to the even worse Obamacare price increases insurers are about to extract across the rest of the nation. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that “big insurers in Idaho, West Virginia, South Carolina, Iowa, and Wyoming are seeking to raise premiums by 30 percent or more.”

The insurance industry lobbied the Democrat-controlled Congress in 2010 to design Obamacare to be more expensive than traditional private insurance by dramatically expanding services covered in the health benefit packages.

https://i1.wp.com/media.breitbart.com/media/2015/06/Covered-California-640x480.jpg

Section 1302 of the law granted also the Department of Health and Human Services the right to periodically revise an “essential health benefits package” of minimum health insurance coverage requirements. That allowed insurance companies to lobby federal bureaucrats to add more benefits and eliminate the standard lifetime caps on spending for wildly expensive treatments, such as inpatient drug rehabilitation.

Since the 2013-4 launch of Obamacare, premiums have risen by about 15 percent per year, despite inflation averaging only about 2 percent a year.

Not only were insurance companies making huge increases in revenue during the Obamacare years, their gross profit margins jumped from 22 percent, when Obamacare was passed in 2010, to 26 percent in the last quarter of 2016. Healthcare stocks have been the second-hottest sector in the seven-year bull market for stocks. Since Obamacare was passed on March 23, 2010, the healthcare stock index has risen by 248 percent.

The Trump presidential win appeared to represent an existential threat to the healthcare industry’s Obamacare bonanza. But with the Republican Senate failing to pass any type of Obamacare repeal, the healthcare stocks hit another all-time-high on July 31.

Many major healthcare companies that supported the expansion of Obamacare benefits and costs over the last seven years are now dropping out of the program as customers begin to take full advantage of the expanded and unlimited benefits.

United Healthcare, America’s largest healthcare insurer, announced in March 2016 that it was exiting all Obamacare exchanges after stating that Obamacare claims would reduce 2016 earnings by about $850 million. Still, four months later, United Healthcare recorded all-time-record quarterly revenues of $46.5 billion, a $10 billion increase over the prior year.

Covered California had been able to keep healthcare premium growth to around 10 percent per year because 11 healthcare insurers were participating. But Aetna dropped out at the end of 2016, and Anthem Blue Cross just announced they are dumping 153,000 customers and shutting down California operations in all regions except the rural north state, Central Valley, and Santa Clara County, according to the Orange County Register.

The 12.5 percent Covered California statewide increase is just an average. Abandoned United Healthcare subscribers can still buy coverage from Blue Shield, but their annual premium cost is expected to leap by 24 percent.

Covered California premium rates could jump statewide by another 16.6 percent if the Trump administration does not contest the May 12, 2016 ruling by U.S. District Judge Rosemary M. Collyer in United States House of Representatives v. Price that the Obama administration improperly amended Obamacare in January 2014 to pay billions in cost-sharing subsidies to insurers without congressional approval.

Obama Girls In Tears As Fed Marshals Seize Their Taxpayer-Funded Party Yacht [video]

(satirical fiction)  Sasha and Malia Obama, best known for being the daughters of the most corrupt president in American history and twerking and smoking drugs at rap concerts like little thugs, had a rude awakening last weekend when federal marshals seized the yacht the girls have been partying on with their friends for the last several weeks. Documents were previously filed by the Internal Revenue Service demanding that the Obamas show receipts or proof of purchase for the yacht, but they failed to do so in the timeline provided, so federal marshals took immediate action.

The boat, which has mysterious origins, is rumored to be the illegally seized property of Russian diplomats.

On Saturday morning, two dozen law enforcement officials raided the vessel. After evacuating the sleeping occupants, the agents searched the cabin and found several ounces of marijuana as well as pills that appear to be the popular street drug ecstasy and dozens of bottles of hard alcohol amid the piles of vomit and filth. It is not yet known at this time whether drug possession charges will be pressed or what other legal ramifications this poses for the Obama family.

According to a source close to the family who was a dinner guest over the weekend, the girls were quite upset that their little toy was taken away:

Malia has always been the violent one so no one was surprised that she was stomping around and crying and throwing things…just being rude to everyone and throwing a tantrum as usual. They sent her up to her room, but we could still hear glass breaking and loud rap music blaring with the “F-word” every two seconds. Sasha is quieter. She just sat on the couch all night with her iPod and glared at everyone.

Poor Sasha and Malia. I guess you’ll have to stop being druggie freeloading little trollops now and actually go get some real jobs. Americans are tired of your crap and we’re not picking up the tab for your disgusting, immoral luxurious lifestyle anymore. Get ready to throw a lot of hissy fits, girls, because the Trump team is going to take all of your daddy’s other stolen toys away too.

Of course what do you expect from the offspring of this heathen:

Regardless of what the authorities decide, serious illegal activities did take place and Freedom Crossroads is following this developing story to make sure the Obama family is exposed as the frauds, liars and CRIMINALS they are. Stay tuned for updates on this breaking story and help us in the fight to hold these monsters accountable.

Report: Obama Era NSA Admits To Years Of Illegal Searches On Americans

A bombshell report claims that the NSA, under then President Obama, conducted years of illegal searches of American’s private data. The report appears in the online publication Circa and details how once-classified documents show how the spy agency failed to disclose the abuses.

According to a previously classified report reviewed by Circa, one in 20 electronic communications by Americans were scooped up and kept by the NSA. The NSA admitted that the actions of the so-called 702 database potentially violated the fourth amendment protections of millions of Americans. This even after the spy agency’s own supervisors agreed in 2011 to follow certain safeguards. The publication goes on to say the Obama administration self-disclosed the violations late last year just before President Donald Trump was elected. The admittance of wrongdoing was made before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The agency received a strong rebuke from the court according to Circa.

In early January, shortly before President Trump’s inauguration, Obama administration officials changed the rules regarding the handling of sensitive information of Americans scooped up in NSA data collection. The rule change did away with the previous safeguards and allowed wide dispersion of information on individuals to be spread across several agencies.

The American Civil Liberties Union expressed shock to Circa that the abuses were admitted by government officials. Over the last several months, various operatives with the government have tried to tamp down claims of intentional wiretapping by the former administration.

Former Senior DHS Official On ISIS Slaughtering Egyptian Christians: ‘What Goes Around, Comes Around’

https://s15-us2.ixquick.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?url=https%3A%2F%2Fstatic.pjmedia.com%2Fuser-content%2F31%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F01%2F20130528122947001_hd.jpg&sp=20d6a109d0745b794cd0b7644080c857

A former Obama administration official at the Department of Homeland Security said Sunday that when it comes to the Islamic State slaughtering Egyptian Christians, “what goes around, comes around.”

In a tweet posted Sunday, Mohamed Elibiary, who formerly served as senior member of the DHS’ Homeland Security Advisory Council, stated, “Reading ISIS’s latest mag ‘otherizing’ Egypt’s Copts. Subhanallah how what goes around comes around. Coptic ldrs did same to MB Egyptians.”

“Subhanallah” is Arabic for “Glory to Allah,” and so in this tweet, Elibiary is expressing praise to Allah for the fact that ISIS is killing Egyptian Christians as apparent retribution for Coptic leaders doing the same to members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

https://i0.wp.com/dailycaller.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/2017-05-07-17_29_15-Mohamed-Elibiary-@MohamedElibiary-_-Twitter-Opera-768x138.png

In early May, ISIS published issue 9 of its magazine “Rumiyah,” which is the publication Elibiary is referencing in his tweet.

The first article in the new issue is titled “The Ruling on the Belligerent Christians,” and explicitly praises the recent ISIS terror attacks against Coptic Christians in Egypt, also calling for more deadly attacks against Christians and their property. Elibiary referred to this call and other contents in the article as “otherizing” in his tweet.

“From among these blessed deeds were the successive attacks which the soldiers of the Islamic State in Misr1 and Sinai carried out against the Christians in those lands, targeting them with killings and assassinations, and afflicting their churches with burning and explosions,” the article in Rumiyah states. “Thus, they brought upon them tremendous detriment and deepened their wounds. The last of the blessed attacks against them were the simultaneous explosions at two of their largest churches, one in northern Misr and the other in southern Misr, in the cities of Alexandria and Tanta on their holiday on the 12th of the month of Rajab in the year 1438.”

The Obama administration let Elibiary go from his position in September 2014. Elibiary has a long history of controversial remarks, including statements that the return of the Muslim caliphate is “inevitable,” and also that America is “an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution.”

Regarding his Sunday tweet, Elibiary told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement: “It’s a shame Egypt & the Egyptian social fabric was destroyed to this degree by the entry of the military into politics & economics.”

Aetna Pulls Out Of Obamacare

Health insurer Aetna Inc (AET.N) said on Wednesday it will exit the 2018 Obamacare individual insurance market in Delaware and Nebraska – the two remaining states where it offered the plans.

Aetna has now “completely exited the exchanges,” the company said in an emailed statement.

Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives last week voted to undo the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare, the signature domestic achievement of former President Barack Obama.

But even if the Republicans’ bill – known as the American Health Care Act – is passed by the Senate it would not solve a critical outstanding issue for insurers looking at 2018: Will the government continue to fund the cost-sharing subsidies that help individuals pay for care?

VIDEO: Pro-Muslim Migrant New Yorkers Asked To House One: ALL REFUSE

Progressive New Yorkers who supported Barack Obama’s plan to bring in hundreds of thousands of refugees were recently asked if they would sign up to personally house one.

Surprise, surprise, THEY ALL SAID NO.

American Democracy: A Dead Man Walking

Trump’s “sell-out,” as it is called, coming on top of Obama’s eight-year “sell-out,” is instructive. We have now had a Democratic president who sold out the people who elected him and a Republican president who has done the same thing. This is a very interesting point, the meaning of which most people miss.

But not Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin. At the Valdai discussion club, Putin summed up Western democracy, which I paraphrase as follows:

In the West, voters cannot change policies through elections, because the ruling elites control whoever is elected. Elections give the appearance of democracy, but voting does not change the policies that favor war and the elites. Therefore, the will of the people is impotent.

People are experiencing that they and their votes have no influence on the conduct of affairs of the country. This makes them afraid, frusrated, and angry, a combination of emotions that is dangerous to the ruling elite, who in response organize the powers of the state against the people, while urging them with propaganda to support more wars.

Obama promised to get out of Afghanistan or Iraq or perhaps it was both. He promised to reverse the police state created by the George W. Bush regime. He promised to focus American resources on American domestic problems, such as health care.

But what did he do? He expanded the wars and launched new ones, destroyed Libya and attempted to destroy Syria, but was stopped by British non-participation and Russian objection. Obama overthrew democratic governments in Honduras and Ukraine. He expanded the police state. He began the demonization of Russia and Putin. He betrayed the American people again by allowing the private insurance industry to write his health care plan known as Obamacare. The private interests wrote a plan that diverts public monies from health care to their profits.

All of this is forgotten when the ruling elites and the presstitutes that serve only them refocused the demonetization on Trump. Suddenly, it was the president-elect of the United States who was the main danger to the US and the American people. Trump was a Russian agent. He had conspired with Putin to steal the US election from Hillary Clinton and make the White House a partner of Putin’s alleged reconstruction of the Soviet Empire.

The nonsense was hot and furious, and it was effective. Trump succumbed to pressure and sacrificed his National Security Advisor, who was supportive of Trump’s promise to normalize relations with Russia. Trump replaced him with a Russophobic idiot who apparently cannot wait to see mushroom clouds over cities all over the Western world.

Why did two presidents in succession completely sell out the people who voted for them?

The answer is that presidents are not as powerful as the interest groups who make the decisions.

Trump was going to get us out of Syria, so he committed an unambiguous war crime by gratuitously attacking Syria with Tomahawk missiles.

Trump was going to normalize relations with Russia, so his Secretary of State announces that US economic sanctions will stay on Russia until Russia hands over to Ukraine the Russian Crimean naval base on the Black Sea.

It is impossible to normalize relations when the cost to the other party of the normalization is national suicide.

Despite Trump’s complete surrender to the powers that be, today (May 2) on NPR I heard raw propaganda dressed up as “expert opinion” that Trump is biased against the media, when what all of us have seen is massive media bias against Trump, including the program to which I was listening.

For example, NPR had accumulated “experts” who said that Trump had slandered Obama by accusing him of intercepting his communications. NPR said nothing about the Obama regime’s charge that Trump conspired with Putin to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.

If anything was slander, this was, but all the talk was about how Obama could sue Trump.

But, of course, both are public figures, and neither can sue the other.

I wonder why NPR’s “expert” didn’t get around to this point.

Why is the ruling oligarchy still using its presstitutes to campaign against a president who has surrendered to them?

Perhaps the answer is that the real powers that be are going to make an example out of Trump so that never again does a person running for elected office make a populist appeal to the electorate.

The Last Country America “Liberated” From An “Evil” Dictator Is Now Openly Trading Slaves

https://i2.wp.com/www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2017/04/13/20170415_slaves_1.jpg

It is widely known that the U.S.-led NATO intervention to topple Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 resulted in a power vacuum that has allowed terror groups like ISIS to gain a foothold in the country.

Despite the destructive consequences of the 2011 invasion, the West is currently taking a similar trajectory with regard to Syria. Just as the Obama administration excoriated Gaddafi in 2011, highlighting his human rights abuses and insisting he must be removed from power to protect the Libyan people, the Trump administration is now pointing to the repressive policies of Bashar al-Assad in Syria and warning his regime will soon come to an end — all in the name of protecting Syrian civilians.

But as the U.S. and its allies fail to produce legal grounds for their recent air strike – let alone provide concrete evidence to back up their claims Assad was responsible for a deadly chemical attack last week – more hazards of invading foreign countries and removing their heads of state are emerging.

This week, new findings revealed another unintended consequence of “humanitarian intervention”: the growth of the human slave trade.

The Guardian reports that while “violence, extortion and slave labor” have been a reality for people trafficked through Libya in the past, the slave trade has recently expanded. Today, people are selling other human beings out in the open.

The latest reports of ‘slave markets’ for migrants can be added to a long list of outrages [in Libya],” said Mohammed Abdiker, head of operation and emergencies for the International Office of Migration, an intergovernmental organization that promotes “humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all,” according to its website. “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.”

The North African country is commonly used as a point of exit for refugees fleeing other parts of the continent. But since Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011, “the vast, sparsely populated country has slid into violent chaos and migrants with little cash and usually no papers are particularly vulnerable,” the Guardian explains.

One survivor from Senegal said he was passing through Libya from Niger with a group of other migrants attempting to flee their home countries. They had paid a smuggler to transport them via bus to the coast, where they would risk taking a boat to Europe. But rather than take them to the coast, the smuggler took them to a dusty lot in Sabha, Libya. According to Livia Manente, an IOM officer who interviews survivors, “their driver suddenly said middlemen had not passed on his fees and put his passengers up for sale.

Several other migrants confirmed his story, independently describing kinds of slave markets as well as kinds of private prisons all over in Libya,she said, adding IOM Italy had confirmed similar stories from migrants landing in southern Italy.

The Senegalese survivor said he was taken to a makeshift prison, which the Guardian notes are common in Libya.

“Those held inside are forced to work without pay, or on meager rations, and their captors regularly call family at home demanding a ransom. His captors asked for 300,000 west African francs (about £380), then sold him on to a larger jail where the demand doubled without explanation.”

When migrants were held too long without having a ransom paid for them, they were taken away and killed. “Some wasted away on meager rations in unsanitary conditions, dying of hunger and disease, but overall numbers never fell,” the Guardian reported.

“If the number of migrants goes down, because of death or someone is ransomed, the kidnappers just go to the market and buy one,” Manente said.

Giuseppe Loprete, IOM Niger’s chief of mission, confirmed these disturbing reports. “It’s very clear they see themselves as being treated as slaves,” he said. He arranged for the repatriation of 1,500 migrants just in the first three months of this year and is concerned more stories and incidents will emerge as more migrants return from Libya.

And conditions are worsening in Libya so I think we can also expect more in the coming months,” he added.

As the United States government continues to entertain regime change in Syria as a viable solution to the many crises in that country, it is becoming ever-more evident that ousting dictators — however detestable they may be —  is not effective. Toppling Saddam Hussein led not only to the deaths of civilians and radicalization within the population, but also the rise of ISIS.

As Libya, once a beacon of stability in the region, continues to devolve in the fallout from the Western “humanitarian” intervention – and as human beings are dragged into emerging slave trades while rapes and kidnappings plague the population – it is increasingly obvious that further war will only create even further suffering in unforeseen ways.

Obama Regime Claimed They Got Syrian Government To Verifiably Give Up Their Chemical Weapons Stockpile Before Trump Bombed It

https://img.washingtonpost.com/wp-apps/imrs.php?src=https://img.washingtonpost.com/rf/image_960w/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2017/04/04/National-Security/Images/Trump_Russia_QA_01090-d8058.jpg&w=1484

In the wake of President Trump’s cruise-missile strike against Syria for apparent use of sarin nerve agent against civilians on April 7, 2017:

“We were able to find a solution that didn’t necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished. Our aim in contemplating the use of force following the use of chemical weapons in August of 2013 was not to intervene in the civil war, not to become involved in the combat between Assad and the opposition, but to deal with the threat of chemical weapons by virtue of the diplomacy that we did with Russia and with the Security Council. We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”

— Susan E. Rice, then-national security adviser, in an interview with NPR’s “Morning Edition,” Jan. 16 2017

In the wake of President Trump’s cruise-missile strike against Syria for apparent use of sarin nerve agent against civilians, many readers have asked The Fact Checker to examine this quote by former national security adviser Susan E. Rice. We had not fact-checked it previously, but it certainly raises questions.

https://s14-eu5.ixquick.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?url=http%3A%2F%2Ft1.gstatic.com%2Fimages%3Fq%3Dtbn%3AANd9GcSkS7XOaUBx4jhMAbPAROpZySjkEee82_qOciWNLUNVZopt94bZ&sp=742bf55e72940d91fe04cd83d746d1fd&anticache=280157

Our colleagues at PolitiFact have already removed from its website a fact check that had rated this 2014 statement by then-Secretary of State John F. Kerry as mostly true: “We got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out.”

Insider BETRAYS Obama & Hillary, Reveals HUGE Lie They Told American People

https://i2.wp.com/madworldnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/ObamaBlinkenClinton-678x356.jpg

Barack Obama (left), Tony Blinken (center), Hillary Clinton (right)

It’s no secret that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are habitual liars. If their lips are moving, you can bet that they’re spewing some sort of falsehood. Finally, after years of their shenanigans, a former Obama administration insider has now come forward to reveal a huge lie that the pair told the American people, and this one has had some very real repercussions.

Back in 2013, the United States brokered a deal with Russia and Syria which was designed to get rid of the chemical weapons stockpile that dictator Bashar al-Assad was using against his own people. The Obama administration frequently claimed success for getting all of the chemical weapons out of Syria, something which they apparently knew full well they had not accomplished, yet chose to tell us all anyway.

In a New York Times article published Sunday, former high-ranking Obama administration official Tony Blinken admitted as much, saying, “We always knew we had not gotten everything, that the Syrians had not been fully forthcoming in their declaration.” Fast forward four years and that one lie perpetuated by the Obama administration has set off a chain reaction which some fear could lead to WWIII.

It became woefully apparent that Assad still has chemical weapons last week, when he used sarin gas to kill nearly 100 noncombatants, including infants and children, in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun. Moved by the heart-wrenching photographs of tiny babies suffering excruciating deaths from the nerve gas which is banned by the UN, President Donald Trump responded by directing two U.S. Navy warships stationed in the Mediterranean Sea to fire 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the air base from which Assad launched his chemical attack.

Trump’s military assault was a success, earning praise from Syrians everywhere who have been suffering for years but had grown used to Obama’s inaction when it came to Assad’s brutal war crimes. In 2013, after the Syrian dictator had waged another even more devastating chemical attack against his own people, Obama threatened recourse, but his administration ultimately did nothing. Then, he followed that crucial mistake up by lying to us all regarding Assad’s access to more chemical weapons.

Tony Blinken, who served as the former deputy secretary of state and former deputy national security adviser under Obama, apparently grew tired of perpetuating the lie which his colleagues, including Susan Rice and John Kerry, were so used to telling. His admission to the NY Times serves as proof that Obama’s dreadful foreign policy placed us in the precarious position we find ourselves in now.

While some have speculated that the air strike last week could lead to WWIII, it appears that Assad has gotten the intended message and does not plan on retaliating, at least at the moment. Only time will tell if he heeds Donald Trump’s warning and does not cross any more red lines. However, if the time does come for greater conflict, be sure to blame Barack Obama, not Donald Trump, for the mess that follows.

Democrat Party Propaganda Group Shareblue Has Ties To A Host Of Foreign Special Interests

https://s17-us2.ixquick.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?url=http%3A%2F%2Ffreebeacon.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2016%2F02%2FDavid-Brock.jpg&sp=37c31328827cb7b85ce47c4b8828922c

As the American press has shone a spotlight upon alleged Russian involvement both in the U.S. presidential election and its aftermath, Disobedient Media has identified a number of foreign public and private sector groups using DNC operations to peddle influence in American politics. An investigation into a shadowy world of shell companies and chains of influence stretching all over the globe has revealed that Democratic propaganda figure David Brock’s organization Shareblue appears to be a apparent front group being used by a number of Chinese, Middle Eastern, British, Israeli, Mexican and American special interests to spread anti-Trump and anti-democratic rhetoric both during the presidential election as well as in its aftermath.

David Brock is a one-time Republican turned Democrat operative once labeled by Time Magazine as one of the most influential players in the DNC. Brock has a long history working for the Democrat Party in media promotion and propaganda, starting with his organization Media Matters. During the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Brock ran the group Correct the Record, which paid an army of online trolls to “harass, censor Trump supporters and spread their own propaganda” across various forums and social media outlets online. In the aftermath of the election, Brock has returned to continue to fight an information war online, armed a $40 million budget and a renewed will to resist President Donald Trump. The group, Shareblue, continues the same tactics used by Brock’s past organizations and has been criticized by fellow Democrats as harming more than helping due to its reliance upon online harassment and censorship. An investigation into the corporate paper trail behind Shareblue reveals what is likely the true reason for concern among DNC members: Shareblue appears to be supported by a raft of foreign interests in China, Britain, Israel and various Middle Eastern entities to interfere in American politics.

I. Shareblue’s Parent Company Is Partially Owned By Group With Ties To Chinese Tycoon Ke Xiping And The Chinese Government

Shareblue’s website was registered by their Chief Operating Officer Joshua Nerpel on behalf of True Blue Media LLC. True Blue Media LLC is owned by David Brock and was used to purchase Shareblue’s political commentary platform when it was known as Blue Nation Review. Blue Nation Review had previously been used during the Democratic primary as a way for paid trolls working for Hillary Clinton’s campaign to target Bernie Sanders supporters online and was described as having an extreme left bias.

A. The Holding Company Which Owned Blue Nation Review Retains A 20% Stake In Shareblue, Board Members Include Figures in Australian Mining Industry With Deep Ties To China

Brock purchased an 80% stake in Blue Nation Review from Moko Social Media Ltd., who retained a 20% equity stake. Moko Social Media Ltd. is a holding company located in Arlington, VA. Oddly for a social media company, Moko Social Media’s Board of Directors includes “Non Executive Chairman” by the name of Malcolm Raymond Scott James, an Australian mining project manager. Mr. James serves as Non Executive Finance Director at Eureka Mining PLC, a mining group located in the City of London. Since 2002, James has also acted as an Executive Director at Tianshan Goldfields Ltd. (????). Tianshan Goldfields is registered in Australia holding various exploration projects in China. Its largest asset was the Gold Mountain Project located in the Tian Shan Gold Belt in Xinjiang, China. Gold Mountain (Jinshan), in Mandarin, is a commonly used Chinese nickname historically for the western region of North America, specifically California due to the state’s historic gold rush.

As outlined by the Department of State in their 2016 Investment Climate Statement on China, foreign companies seeking to gain entry to industries designated “restricted” by the Chinese government must create a joint venture with a Chinese partner. China’s ostensible goal of this restrictive Foreign Investment Catalogue is to protect sensitive industries that the government hopes to shield from foreign exploitation. The Chinese Ministry of Commerce’s Catalogue for the Guidance of Foreign Investment Industries, last updated in 2015, lists the exploration and mining of gold as a Restricted Foreign Investment Industry. To enter a restricted industry sector, a foreign firm must undergo a permit application process prone to corrupt abuses and share a minority stake with a domestic corporation which often is chosen because of its close ties to the Chinese government.

The Xinjiang Province of China has for years been beset by ethnic violence and Islamic terrorism, with attacks reported by the South China Morning Post as recently as February 2017. The area is heavily regulated by Chinese government authorities. Foreigners are seldom inclined to seek access to the region and foreign investments are seldom realized due to the unrest as well as Xinjiang’s lack of ocean access. The mining industry in particular has been made a target in large scale terror attacks.

B. Tianshan Goldfields Engaged In An Apparent Cash Transfer Scheme With The Chinese Government Disguised As A Mining Project

Tianshan Goldfields Ltd.’s entry to the volatile marketplace was a strange choice in a country with many more secure operations to offer an investing firm ostensibly seeking to maximize profit and minimize risk. Their Chinese business partner raises questions about the incentive to grant the company access to a restricted industry sector in China given Malcolm James’ ties to the holding company that managed Blue Nation Review and continues to hold a 20% stake in Shareblue.

Tianshan Goldfield’s partner holding 10% in the Gold Mountain project was revealed in Tianshan’s mining permit approval obtained by mining website 24hGold to be a Chinese mining organization called Xinjiang Gold Mountain Mining Co., Ltd. Xinjiang Gold Mountain Mining, in turn, is held entirely by Hengxing Gold Holding Company Ltd., a shell company registered in the Cayman Islands in an apparent attempt to conceal Xinjiang Gold Mountain’s true owner. Hengxing Gold’s List of Directors shows that the company’s Chairman is Ke Xiping, a Chinese billionaire from Xiamen, China whose Xiamen Hengxing Group Co., Ltd. holds a diverse range of assets in the construction material, auto parts, electronics, transportation, dairy, real estate and mining sectors.

https://i2.wp.com/disobedientmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Screen-Shot-2017-02-26-at-2.23.47-AM-1024x624.png

Even stranger, Tianshan almost immediately sold off their coveted holding in the restricted sector project to Sino Hydro, a Hong Kong holding group of Chinese state owned corporation PowerChina. PowerChina’s holdings are commonly used by the Chinese government as a means of economic diplomacy, and were involved in an economic deal struck with Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte in October 2016. Immediately after the sale to Sino Hydro, Tianshan Goldfields was merged with Australian firm Corvette Resources flush with cash from the sale but with almost no other holdings in actual mining projects. The sale and immediate merger indicates that Tianshan’s ventures in Xinjiang were intended to disguise a large cash transfer from the Chinese government in return for influence in Shareblue.

The involvement of Mr. Ke in the Gold Mountain Project, and the steps taken to conceal his involvement in it raise questions about the true nature of Hengxing’s dealings with a group whose executive had deep ties to Shareblue. The immediate sale of the entire project to a Chinese state run enterprise and Tianshan’s merger into another Australian firm indicates that the group’s involvement with the Gold Mountain Project may have been a well disguised agreement to peddle influence in Shareblue in return for financial reimbursement.

II. Shareblue COO And Website Registrant Has Ties To Organization Used By British, Arab, Israeli Special Interests As Well As The Clinton Foundation

Following the various connections of Shareblue employees leads to a global chase wading through a number of other “charitable” Foundations and front companies being used as vessels to maintain lines of communication between global players hoping to pull strings and use Brock’s propaganda to influence the minds of American voters. Many of the individuals involved with Shareblue have troubling histories as corporate lobbyists and consultants for a large list of special interest groups, raising questions about the various sources of influence pulling strings in the Democratic propaganda machine.

A. True Blue Media CEO Peter Daou Was An Advisor To Hillary Clinton, The Clinton Foundation And Other Special Interest, DNC Figures

Peter Daou is the CEO of Shareblue’s holding company, True Blue Media LLC and played an integral role in the site’s transformation from True Blue Media to Shareblue. Mr. Daou was a former advisor to Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and former Senator Arlen Specter. His website reveals that he has also advised the Clinton Foundation, the now shuttered Clinton Global Initiative, the U.S. Department of Energy, the United Nations Foundation, Microsoft, Intel, AARP, Inc., Action Against Hunger, PR Newswire and Bloomberg Philanthropies, two news organizations which both have close ties to the City of London-based UBM plc.

Lastly, Mr. Daou has played an advisory role for OneVoice International, an “international grassroots movement that amplifies the voice of mainstream Israelis and Palestinians, empowering them to propel their elected representatives toward the two-state solution.” OneVoice’s partners include an impressive list of global special interests including the Association of British Muslims, the UK Conservative Party, Google, Crown Family Philanthropies, the European Commission (part of the European Union), High Atlas Foundation, the UK Labour Party, the Rayne Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Peter Daou’s involvement with OneVoice creates a very apparent conflict of interest given the massive number of foreign interests who are affiliated with the organization.

B. OneVoice Is An Affiliate Of The PeaceWorks Foundation, With Ties To Mexico, Israel, Saudi Arabia, The City Of London And Other Foreign States

OneVoice is a part of the PeaceWorks Foundation, founded by Mexican-American billionaire Daniel Lubetzky and run with business associates Alon Kastiel, Uri Weiss and S. Daniel Abraham. Mr. Lubetzky is the founder and CEO of KIND SnacksIsraeli newspaper Israel Hayom has stated that the PeaceWorks Foundation maintains branches in Tel Aviv, Israel, Ramallah, Palestine and London, England. PeaceWork’s website mentions that the Foundation does business with Israelis, Palestinians, Egyptians, Australians, Turks, Indonesians and Sri Lankans.

The wide range of foreign connections and interests associated with PeaceWorks indicates additional conflicts of interest given the apparent presence of intermediary figures such as Peter Daou in leadership positions at Shareblue and its holding company. The large number of foreign political parties, special interests and foundations associated with PeaceWorks and OneVoice raise serious concerns about their influence within Shareblue and how that influence might be affecting decision making processes in the group. David Brock’s various propaganda machines are by nature already problematic. With the revelations that Chinese moguls, state run enterprises and Foundations with deep ties to the financial world of London, Israel, Saudi Arabia and a number of other players have ties to Shareblue and its affiliated companies, Brock, Daou and others in the propaganda group could be in violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act for failing to declare their roles as actors working on behalf of foreign principals. The large number of foreign interest groups connected to Brock and other officers in positions of control indicate that, far from being an organization that promotes liberal ideals, Shareblue exists as an outlet for political interests to subvert democratic institutions in America and hijack liberalism to promote the interests those who wish to take advantage of American citizens.

To Remove ObamaCare We Must First Remove The UniParty “Big Club”…

By Sundance | The Conservative Treehouse

President Trump is the first political entity in our lifetime that not only comprehends the faces of the false arguments (the personalities of false choice), but more importantly sees the architects behind the Potemkin villages represented by those faces.  When it comes to domestic economic policies, the architects are the BIG CLUB.

So, what is “The Big Club“?

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/the-big-club-2.jpg?w=640&h=455

..What “Deep State” is to intelligence, military intervention and foreign policy – The “BIG CLUB” is to matters of domestic economics…

Politicians do not write laws.  Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer do not sit in their offices writing out scripts of laws and legislation; no politician does.  Politicians are the faces who sell legislation that unseen hands create.  The Big Club are the hands that create the legislation.

As such, it makes no sense to argue about the salesmanship of Ted Cruz or Elizabeth Warren when neither Cruz nor Warren are creating the legislative constructs they are selling.

Indeed, it makes much more sense to focus the attention on the unseen hands that are never discussed – These are the roots of the issues, the politicians are merely the expendable and interchangeable sales force.

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/lobbying-1-research.jpg

The Big Club are massive and complex networks of lobbying groups who actually write legislation.  What follows, depending on their own evaluation of importance therein, are payments to the politicians to go and sell their construct.

The amount of payment varies depending on how valuable the construct is to the interests of the Club.  Big legislative constructs that provide the Club large income increases are worth more than smaller ones.

This is the accurate background framework to consider ObamaCare.

Within The BIG CLUB there are, essentially, two larger factions with interest: Big Labor and Wall Street (big crony-business).  There are other factions like Big Green (Al Gore) etc. However, for the sake of ObamaCare the two that matter are “Big Labor” (AFL-CIO, SEIU, AFSCME, UFCW etc), and Wall Street (U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue).

The Big Club has paid for ObamaCare’s construct, and they are not going to allow their sales force to walk away from it.  From their position, this is a massive ‘multi-multi-hundreds-of-millions’ expenditure that has already taken place.

Tom Donohue (U.S. CoC) already lost hundreds of millions when his construct (his team actually did the writing) of TPP was lost due to Donald Trump.   Donohue’s TPP loss followed the loss of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (2014 Dave Brat), and his loss of Common Core Education standards, again with Donald Trump.

Donohue spent hundreds of millions on Gang of Eight, Common Core, TPP and ObamaCare.

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/tom-donohue-3.jpg

Donohue paid off AFL-CIO’s Richard Trumka to get him to stop being public about his opposition of TPP.   The quid-pro-quo was transparently most evident when Trumka endorsed candidate Hillary Clinton who was supporting Donohue’s TPP.

Having lost TPP, Go8 and Common Core, there is no way Tom Donohue is going to accept losing his biggest investment to date, ObamaCare.

♦ Big Labor support ObamaCare for a few reasons.  #1 it granted fiscal stability to their retirement programs which were failing with the increased costs of providing healthcare coverage.  #2 it creates additional profit margin space within union companies for more lucrative compensation contracts.  And #3 ideologically it was constructed to eventually end up with a single-payer system.  All three points are great for Big Labor.

♦ Wall Street supports ObamaCare because it:  #1 removes the cost of providing healthcare from the cost of producing products in the U.S. [However, you’ll note the consumer price of manufactured goods never actually decreases, instead the savings go to the profit margin.] #2 allows the manufacturing cost equity to streamline globalization efforts.

Both primary factions within the BIG CLUB stood to gain substantially if they could shift the cost of healthcare from their individual ledgers into the personal checkbooks of the U.S. consumer.  Hence, they looked at the lobbying cost of ObamaCare as a long-term legislative investment with a massive upside.

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/mcconnell-ryan.jpg

After the GOPe wing of the UniParty was voted into the majority in both houses (2014), the Big Club sales people (politicians) needed to give the illusion of “repeal” or “removal”, but not actually do anything which would remove it.  So long as Obama was in office the optical games were easy; with Clinton later in office the games would be no longer needed.

Big Club spends to make sure Clinton wins the Presidency.

#NeverTrump making sense now?

Rut Roh.

Now, fast forward to 2017 and President Trump is in office on a promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Oh snap, NOW what is the Big Club going to do?

Stall for time…. Quick construct plan to deal with the unexpected.  Stall, block cabinet and down-stream confirmations… Activate astroturf to provide Sales Force cover…  Paul Ryan lies to Sean Hannity… etc.

More things reconciling now?

Meanwhile, President Trump understands exactly what they are doing.

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/trump-and-trumka-2.jpg

President-Elect Trump met with Richard Trumka and outlined larger administration pro-jobs objective assurances.

Once in office, President Trump works around Donohue and goes to the manufacturing and business community directly.

Now Trump is highlighting how deregulation, tax policy and other pro-growth America-First objectives will more than compensate them for any ObamaCare recall.

The battle/negotiation you see in the media is the visible stuff going on amid the Big Club’s sales people, the politicians.  However, the REAL ObamaCare removal negotiation is going on behind the scenes where the Trump Administration is taking on The Big Club directly…

Once you see the strings, it’s almost impossible to watch the marionettes and not see them.

However, that doesn’t mean the puppet show has to be less enjoyable….

….Specifically because we have President Trump, it is entirely possible to simultaneously watch the show, and yet still look up toward the scaffolding and see the shadows of the hands controlling them.

Obama Planning Civil War To Stop Trump

Obama is gearing up to command a well funded civil war campaign from a mansion bunker within two miles of the Whitehouse.

This private “shadow white house” is home base for his OFA (Organizing For Action) and Foundation. It accommodates a chief of staff and press secretary to help run an organizing and protesting infrastructure that will go after and constantly attack until Trump is overthrown.

Now that Trump’s In Office, Media Suddenly Concerned with US Military Killing Civilians

https://whiskeytangotexas.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/02c4b-serveimage.jpgFor the last eight years, Peace Prize recipient and ostensible savior of the free world, Barack Obama, rained down hell from the sky on brown people across the Middle East. Obama far exceeded his predecessor, George W. Bush, in the use of drone strikes, killing more civilians than ever before and aiding in the creation and growth of worldwide terror.

On top of this warlord president receiving the Peace Prize, in his final days in office, Barack Obama was ironically given the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service “as a token of appreciation for his service as commander in chief” at a farewell ceremony on January 4. The medal is the highest honorary award at the Department of Defense and is presented by the Secretary of Defense.

Obama has ordered the launching of more Tomahawk cruise missiles than All the other Nobel Peace Prize winners combined.

In his last year alone, Obama authorized the United States military to drop more than 26,000 bombs in 7 countries, according to an estimate by the Council on Foreign Relations. During the prior year, the numbers were similar.

An estimated 50,000 bombs in only 24 months fell onto houses, churches, schools, and hospitals — all authorized by the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize — his supporters, as well as the corporate mainstream media, remained silent.

Fast forward to last weekend

Following in his predecessor’s footsteps, reports from Yemen indicate that as many as 10 women and children were killed in a raid authorized by Donald Trump. During this raid, the 8-year-old granddaughter of Nasser al-Awlaki, who was also the daughter of Anwar Awlaki was shot in the neck and died after suffering for two hours, according to Nasser al-Awlaki.

What makes the tragedy of this 8-year-old girl killed by Trump stand out, however, is the fact that Obama killed her older brother and her father — who were both US citizens — who were extrajudicially murdered without trial.

OFFICIAL: Obama Broke 78 Laws As President… Here’s The List

The list is might long, and is a striking record of Obama’s real legacy — the one the media pundits and Democrats will not tell you about:

https://thehornnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/obama-1-280x175.jpg

“What a shame that America’s first black president was America’s worst president.”

1) Illegally armed Mexican drug cartels and ISIS militants In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration facilitated the sale of thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels and stopped tracking those weapons once they crossed the border so the administration could later blame the Second Amendment. “The Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives apparently ordered one of its own agents to purchase firearms with taxpayer money, and sell them directly to a Mexican drug cartel,” the New York Post reported. “Let that sink in: After months of pretending that ‘Fast and Furious’ was a botched surveillance operation of illegal gun-running spearheaded by the ATF and the US attorney’s office in Phoenix, it turns out that the government itself was selling guns to the bad guys.” Even more shocking, President Obama authorized a shipment of guns to the Syrian opposition, a.k.a. ISIS-linked militants, on the exact same day he demanded more gun control in response to the Oregon shooting. “…The President also emphasized to his team that the U.S. would continue to support the Syrian opposition as Russia enters the war-torn country,” CNN reported in October. But virtually all of the rebels in Syria have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State since at least 2013. “The Free Syrian Army and the Syrian National Council, the vaunted bulwarks of the moderate opposition, only really exist in hotel lobbies and the minds of Western diplomats,” Journalist Ben Reynolds wrote in November. “There is simply no real separation between ‘moderate’ rebel groups and hardline Salafists allied with al-Qaeda.”

2) Attempting to shut down gun stores outside of law
In a classic case of criminal  racketeering, the U.S. Department of Justice was pressuring banks to refuse service to gun stores in a program entitled Operation Choke Point. Under the program started in 2014 if not before, the DOJ was attempting to shut down legal gun dealers by coercing financial institutions to close the bank and merchant accounts associated with their businesses.
In 2012, Bank of America told a gun company, McMillan Group International, that because the company was expanding into firearms manufacturing, the bank no longer wanted McMillan’s business. “We have to assess the risk of doing business with a firearms-related industry,” the bank’s representative told operations director Kelly McMillan. And not long after, BitPay, a U.S.-based bitcoin processor, likewise refused to do business with gun dealer Michael Cargill of Central Texas Gunworks due to a similar policy.

3) Spent tax dollars to re-settle illegals inside U.S. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol has been purchasing bus tickets and vouchers for illegal immigrants in order to ship them deeper into the country at taxpayers’ expense, according to a McAllen, Texas city official. “They’re not bringing them here, they’re bringing them to our bus terminals because that’s where the Border Patrol understands that they have transportation to go to the interior,” McAllen, Texas City Attorney Kevin Pagan said in an interview with Infowars. “So they’re dropping them off and it’s our understanding that they were dropped off with tickets or with vouchers for tickets, but it turns out that some of them tonight didn’t have their tickets or their vouchers for tickets, or like I said their buses are tomorrow, so they have no where to stay.” Several months earlier, Obama ordered the Border Patrol to stand down from protecting the border and enforcing immigration laws. “We are simply being ordered to stand down and stop tracking and trying to apprehend the criminals,” Shawn Moran, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, told Breitbart.

4) Using executive action to restrict Second Amendment Obama decided to use his “pen and his phone” to enact gun control without Congressional approval. “Without a Democratic majority in Congress, and faced with a GOP that is firmly against any form of gun control measures, Obama has repeatedly warned that he would act on his own,” Zero Hedge reported. For one thing, Obama is attempting to require private sellers to conduct background checks. “The action, officials explained, would include guidance on how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives will now determine who is “engaged in the business” of selling firearms under federal law and, therefore, who is required to obtain a license to sell firearms,” the Washington Free Beacon reported. Obama may also try and prevent people on the no-fly list from being able to purchase guns, which violates the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee of due process by allowing the government to deprive people of their rights based only on suspicion. Additionally, numerous law-abiding Americans have been wrongly placed on the No-Fly list due to false information, clerical errors or political persecution. “The U.S. government maintains a massive watch list system that risks stigmatizing hundreds of thousands of people – including U.S. citizens – as terrorism suspects based on vague, over broad, and often secret standards and evidence,” the ACLU reported. “The consequences of being placed on a government watch list can be      far-reaching; they can include questioning, harassment, or detention by authorities, or even an indefinite ban on air travel.”

5) Illegally targeted conservative groups via IRS Obama’s IRS had illegally targeted conservative groups for additional “reviews” of their tax status applications.
Organizations with the phrases “tea party” or “patriot” in their names were singled out for harassment, such as requiring them to provide information about their family members, their social media posts and a list of donors. Obama had met with a key IRS official who was involved in the targeting just two days before the key official told his colleagues how to target conservative groups. The Daily Caller reported: The Obama appointee implicated in congressional testimony in the IRS targeting scandal met with President Obama in the White House two days before offering his colleagues a new set of advice on how to scrutinize tea party and conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status. IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, who was named in House Oversight testimony by retiring IRS agent Carter Hull as one of his supervisors in the improper targeting of conservative groups, met with Obama in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on April 23, 2012. Wilkins’ boss, then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, visited the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on April 24, 2012, according to White House visitor logs. On April 25, 2012, Wilkins’ office sent the exempt organizations determinations unit “additional comments on the draft guidance” for approving or denying tea party tax-exempt applications, according to the IRS inspector general’s report. During Obama’s first four years as President, IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman made 157 visits to the White House. “This is more visits to the White House – by a very large margin – than any other cabinet member during Obama’s first term,” Journalist Tim Brown revealed. “By comparison, during the four years that Mark Everson was IRS commissioner when Bush was president, Everson made only one visit to the White House.”

6) Secretly obtained phone records from Associated Press journalists In May 2013, Associated Press reported: “The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news cooperative’s top executive called a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how news organizations gather the news. The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and the main number for AP reporters in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also included incoming calls or the duration of calls. In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.” Obtaining these phone records required approval from former Attorney General Eric Holder.

7) Carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional approval Obama violated the Constitution when he launched military operations in Libya without Congressional approval.

8) Expanded Bush’s unconstitutional government faith-based programs Obama actually expanded the federal government’s faith based programs which had been started by President George W. Bush.

9) Supported Bush’s unconstitutional Patriot Act Obama renewed the Patriot Act in 2011.

10) Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without filing any charges Obama signed an unconstitutional bill that gave the U.S. government the power to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without any charges being filed or any trial taking place.

11) Supports unconstitutional, warrantless wiretapping President Obama is a huge supporter of warrantless wiretapping.

12) Had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process Obama had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process, to which then-U.S. Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) said was an impeachable offense.

13) Ordered private company to fire 1,000 employees After Boeing hired 1,000 new employees to work at its new factory in South Carolina in 2011, the Obama administration ordered the company to close it down because the factory was non-union.

14) Stole money from retired teachers and police officers During the Chrysler bankruptcy, Obama violated the Fifth Amendment and more than 150 years of bankruptcy law by illegally treating secured creditors worse than unsecured creditors. “Upsetting this fixed hierarchy among creditors is just an illegal taking of property from one group of creditors for the benefit of another, which should be struck down on both statutory and constitutional grounds,” according to Richard A. Epstein, a law professor at New York University School of Law.

15) Fired Inspector General for discovering that Obama’s friend had embezzled government funds Obama fired Inspector General Gerald Walpin in 2009 after Walpin accused Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson, an Obama supporter, of misusing AmeriCorps funding to pay for political activities. Later on, a bipartisan group of 145 current and former public officials and legal scholars signed a letter stating Walpin’s firing was politically motivated.

16) Lied about letting people keep their health insurance Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said: “No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people… If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” But once it was passed, the Congressional Budget Office said Obamacare would cause at least seven million people to lose their insurance.

17) Lied about the cost of Obamacare Before Obamacare was passed, Obama promised:
“I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits – either now or in the future. I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period. And to prove that I’m serious, there will be a provision in this plan that requires us to come forward with more spending cuts if the savings we promised don’t materialize.” However, not long after Obama signed it, the Washington Post reported it would add over $340 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade.

18) Gave tax dollars to campaign contributors and lobbyists, and falsely claimed the money was for “green energy” In 2009, the Obama administration gave $535 million to green-energy company Solyndra, claiming that it would create 4,000 new jobs, but the company soon went bankrupt. It was later revealed the company’s executives had made substantial donations to Obama’s campaign and that Solyndra executives had had many meetings with White House officials.

19) Had “off the record” meetings with lobbyists In June 2010, the New York Times said the Obama administration officials had held hundreds of meetings with lobbyists at coffee houses near the White House to avoid the disclosure requirements for White House visitors.

20) Had armed SWAT agents raid a law-abiding guitar factory because it was owned by a Republican President Obama had an armed SWAT team raid the Gibson guitar factory and seized guitars and other property from the factory – without any charges being filed.
Obama’s so-called justification for the raid was that Gibson had broken environmental laws from India regarding the imported wood that Gibson had been using, but C.F. Martin & Company, Gibsons’s competitor, had used the exact same imported wood. The difference? Henry E. Juszkiewicz, the CEO of Gibson, was a Republican donor, whereas Chris Martin IV, the CEO of Martin, was a Democratic donor.

21) Ignored constitutional requirements for appointees Late U.S. Senator Robert Byrd, a Democrat, expressed concerns that Obama’s dozens of czars appointed in 2009 might violate the U.S. Constitution because they were not approved by the U.S. Senate. Another Democrat, U.S. Senator Russ Feingold, shared a similar sentiment.

22) Tried to outlaw family farms The Obama administration wanted to eradicate family farms in 2012 by trying to prohibit farm children under 18 from working in various farm-related activities.

23) Auctioned off ambassadorship to the Netherlands Obama nominated Timothy Broas to be U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands after Broas donated at least $500,000 to Obama’s 2012 campaign.

24) Made the TSA even more abusive and ridiculous than it had been under Bush Under the Obama administration, the TSA has been giving very invasive pat-downs on young children which would otherwise constitute child molestation.

25) Illegally demanded monetary payment for Freedom of Information Act request the Obama administration demanded the Goldwater Institute pay nearly $79,000 before it would share public records via the Freedom of Information Act.

26) Stole money from retired Delphi employees Obama eliminated the pensions of 20,000 retired Delphi employees in 2009.

27) Used “off the books” funding for military interventionism Anti-war activists who helped elect Obama accused him of using the same “off-the-books” funding as his predecessor George W. Bush when the president requested over $83 billion from Congress for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

28) Tried to silence criticism of auto-bailouts The Obama administration pressured the Ford Motor Company to stop criticizing Obama’s bailouts of General Motors and Chrysler in a TV ad.

29) Tried to silence video on YouTube Obama actually asked a Jewish singing group to take down its video from the Internet in 2011.

30) Illegally gave Obamacare exemptions to unions that supported the passage of Obamacare Obama gave some of his favorite organizations an exemption from some Obamacare requirements. Many of these organizations were unions that had supported the passage of Obamacare, but then afterwards wanted exemptions from the very same law they forced on everyone else. The Constitution, however, requires the law to treat everyone as equals. The Washington Times said of this: “Selective enforcement of the law is the first sign of tyranny. A government empowered to determine arbitrarily who may operate outside the rule of law invariably embraces favoritism as friends, allies and those with the best-funded lobbyists are rewarded. Favoritism inevitably leads to corruption, and corruption invites extortion. Ultimately, the rule of law ceases to exist in any recognizable form, and what is left is tyranny.” “The now-familiar monthly trickling down of new waivers is, at best, a tacit admission that Obamacare is a failure. So far, seven entire states and 1,372 businesses, unions and other institutions have received waivers from the law. The list includes the administration’s friends and allies and, of course, those who have the best lobbyists.” “More than 50 percent of the Obamacare waiver beneficiaries are union members, which is striking because union members account for less than 12 percent of the American work force. The same unions that provided more than $120 million to Democrats in the last two elections and, in many cases, openly campaigned in favor of the government takeover of your health care, now celebrate that Obamacare is not their problem.”

31) Defended Bush administration’s unconstitutional, unwarranted use of GPS device
The Obama administration opposed the U.S. Supreme Court for ruling against the Bush administration over the installation of a GPS tracking device on someone’s car without a warrant.

32) Was cited by nine states for committing 21 illegal acts Attorneys General from nine states listed 21 illegal acts which had been committed by the Obama administration.

33) Tried to seize hotel because some of its customers had used illegal drugs The Obama administration tried to shut down a mom-and-pop bed-and-breakfast because some if its guests had used illegal drugs.

34) Made recess appointments when Congress was not in recess Obama violated the Constitution by making four recess appointments when Congress was not in recess in Jan. 2012. A federal appeals court later ruled that Obama’s appointments had violated the Constitution.

35) Supports guns for himself and his wife, but opposes them for everyone else President Obama signed a 2013 bill providing armed guards for himself and his wife for the rest of the lives. But when Obama was an Illinois state senator in 2004, he voted against  citizens keeping guns in their own homes to protect themselves and their families.

36) Approved giving 20 F-16 fighter jets to a Sharia dictatorship Obama once gave 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt while it was under a Sharia dictatorship.

37) Violated the very same campaign finance laws that he claims to support Obama’s 2012 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating campaign finance laws.

38) Encouraged employers to switch their employees from full time to part time The New York Times said Obamacare “sharply penalizes full-time employment in favor of part-time employment.” In response to the employer mandate of Obamacare, many businesses and even colleges switched some of their employees from full time to part time. Leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE penned a 2013 letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi stating that Obamacare will “destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class… the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation.”

39) Had Freedom of Information Act record worse than Bush’s when it came to honoring requests under the Freedom of Information Act, Obama’s record was far worse than that of George W. Bush.

40) Supports installation of hidden cameras on private property without a search warrant
Obama’s Justice Department once argued in favor of installing hidden cameras on private property without a search warrant.

41) Accepted illegal campaign contributions from foreign citizens During an experiment, a non-U.S. citizen attempted to make two $5 donations to both Obama’s campaign and Mitt Romney’s campaign. While the Romney campaign rejected both donations, the Obama website accepted them cheerfully.

42) Lied about the Benghazi attack After four U.S. citizens were killed in a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, in Sept. 2012, the Obama administration falsely claimed the attack was a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim video at YouTube. Even more, the Obama administration took an entire week before it acknowledged the attacks as terrorism. And although the Obama administration made a dozen revisions to its versions of the incident, then-White House Press Secretary Jay Carney falsely claimed that only a “single adjustment” had been made. ABC News later published a complete list of all the changes to the White House talking points.

43) Complained to YouTube about an anti-Muslim video The Obama administration actually phoned YouTube in 2012 to complain about an anti-Muslim video. “It does make us nervous when the government throws its weight behind any requests for censorship,” Ben Wizner of the ACLU said.

44) Falsely said that Fast and Furious was started when Bush was President Obama lied when he said Fast and Furious had “begun under the previous administration” in 2012. Fast and Furious actually began around September 2009, months after Bush left office.

45) Illegally refused to fire Kathleen Sebelius after she violated campaign finance laws
Kathleen Sebelius, Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, was caught violating campaign finance laws in 2012, but despite federal law requiring Obama to fire her over the illegal activity, he refused to do so.

46) Gave special access to people who raised or donated $500,000 people who raised or donated at least $500,000 to Organizing for Action, a pro-Obama political group, would be given “the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House.”

47) Adopted harmful new restrictions on prescription painkillers – even though the House had already voted against them the Obama administration ignored the House’s rejection of new restrictions on prescription painkillers by adopting them anyway.

48) Illegally refused to submit a budget on time during four of his first five years despite being legally required to submit a budget by the first Monday in February, Obama broke this law at least four times. In contrast, since 1921, no President had missed this deadline more than once.

49) Fined UPS $40 million because some of its customers had used UPS to ship illegal drugs
Obama forced UPS to pay $40 million in 2013 because some of its customers had used the company to ship illegal drugs.

50) Added 20,000 extra pages to Obamacare without Congressional approval after Obamacare was passed, Obama added 20,000 extra pages to it even though those extra pages were not voted on by Congress.

51) Waited until after the 2012 election to release unpopular Obamacare rules
The New York Times reported in 2013: … even fervent supporters of the law admit that things are going worse than expected. … the Obama administration didn’t want to release unpopular rules before the election. Everything is turning out to be more complicated than originally envisioned. A law that was very confusing has become mind-boggling… Americans are just going to be overwhelmed and befuddled. Many are just going to stay away, even if they are eligible for benefits.

52) Tried to rig federal auctions of radio spectrum space The Obama administration was trying to rig federal auctions of radio spectrum space in a manner that would favor Sprint and T-Mobile over its competitors.

53) Put someone in jail for making an anti-Muslim video Politico reported in 2013:
“Nakoula Basseley Nakoula deserves a place in American history. He is the first person in this country jailed for violating Islamic anti-blasphemy laws.” “You won’t find that anywhere in the charges against him, of course. As a practical matter, though, everyone knows that Nakoula wouldn’t be in jail today if he hadn’t produced a video crudely lampooning the prophet Muhammad.” “In the weeks after the attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, the Obama administration claimed the terrorist assault had been the outgrowth of a demonstration against the Nakoula video. The administration ran public service announcements in Pakistan featuring President Barack Obama saying the U.S. had nothing to do with it. In a speech at the United Nations around this time, the president declared – no doubt with Nakoula in mind – ‘The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.’”

54) Rewarded one of his biggest campaign fundraisers by nominating him for the ambassadorship to Canada Obama nominated Bruce Heyman to be the ambassador to Canada in 2013 after Heyman raised more than $1 million for Obama.

55) Asked contractors to disclose their political donations before bidding on government contracts Obama asked contractors to disclose their political donations before bidding on federal contracts in 2011.

56) Falsely accused a law abiding news reporter of being “an insider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation The Obama administration falsely labeled Fox contributor James Rosen as “an insider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation when it applied for a warrant to read his emails. The New York Times reported:
With the decision to label a Fox News television reporter a possible “co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation of a news leak, the Obama administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news. Leak investigations usually focus on the source, not the reporter. But, in this case, federal prosecutors also asked a federal judge for permission to examine Mr. Rosen’s personal e-mails, arguing that “there is probable cause to believe” Mr. Rosen is “an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in the leak. Though Mr. Rosen was not charged, the F.B.I. request for his e-mail account was granted secretly in late May 2010. The government was allowed to rummage through Mr. Rosen’s e-mails for at least 30 days. The Washington Post also said: “The Rosen affair is as flagrant an assault on civil liberties as anything done by George W. Bush’s administration, and it uses technology to silence critics in a way Richard Nixon could only have dreamed of. To treat a reporter as a criminal for doing his job – seeking out information the government doesn’t want made public – deprives Americans of the First Amendment freedom on which all other constitutional rights are based. Guns? Privacy? Due process? Equal protection? If you can’t speak out, you can’t defend those rights, either. Beyond that, the administration’s actions shatter the president’s credibility and discourage allies who would otherwise defend the administration against bogus accusations such as those involving the Benghazi “talking points.” If the administration is spying on reporters and accusing them of criminality just for asking questions – well, who knows what else this crowd is capable of doing?”

57) Asked Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate himself for lying under oath U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder lied under oath when he said he had nothing to do with monitoring the emails of Fox reporter James Rosen, even though his own signature on the search warrant.    In response, Obama asked Holder to investigate himself!

58) Used Obamacare to illegally give the IRS additional powers without approval from Congress The Washington Post reported in 2013: [Obamacare] allows the Department of Health and Human Services to set up federal health exchanges in the holdout states. But the statute makes no mention of the IRS providing credits and subsidies through federal exchanges. The IRS resolved this conundrum by denying its existence. In a May 2012 regulatory ruling, it asserted its own right to provide credits outside the state exchanges as the reasonable interpretation of an ambiguous law. But the language of the law is not ambiguous. And health scholars Jonathan Adler and Michael Cannon, in an exhaustive recent analysis, find no justification for the IRS’s ruling in the legislative history of Obamacare…. So: The IRS seized the authority to spend about $800 billion over 10 years on benefits that were not authorized by Congress.

59) Illegally solicited donations from health insurers In May 2013, Obama’s Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius illegally solicited donations from health insurers to help pay for Obamacare.

60) Proposed military interventionism in Syria Obama proposed the U.S. oust the Syrian government in 2013 by military action.

61) Refused to fire or prosecute more than 1,000 IRS employees who illegally used their IRS credit cards for their own personal use Obama refused to fire or prosecute more than 1,000 IRS employees illegally used their IRS credit cards for personal purchases.

62) Had the Secret Service visit a law abiding citizen who had criticized his policies on Twitter Obama ordered the Secret Service to visit the home of Tom Francois, a law abiding citizen who had criticized Obama’s policies on Twitter in 2013. The Secret Service later admitted that Francois had not made any threats against the president.

63) Had the IRS grant special, illegal favors for his brother’s so-called “charity” The Daily Caller reported the IRS had taken the “unprecedented” step of approving a non-profit application within just one month from the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a so-called “charity” which was headed by Malik Obama, Barack Obama’s brother. Additionally, the IRS illegally gave retroactive approval for the organization’s tax exempt status and had illegally solicited tax deductible donations even though it did not have legal approval to do so.

64) Illegally bypassed Congress to delay Obamacare’s employer mandate In July 2013, Obama delayed the employer mandate part of Obamacare until January 2015, even though Congress set it to begin a year prior. Obama effectively rewrote a law without approval from Congress, which is highly illegal.

65) Illegally forced 2,200 privately owned auto dealerships to close, which destroyed 120,000 jobs Obama cost 120,000 people their jobs by illegally forced 2,200 privately owned auto dealerships to close in 2009.

66) Gave 23,994 tax refunds worth a total of $46,378,040 to illegal aliens who all used the same address The IRS gave nearly 24,000 tax refunds worth a total of nearly $47 million to illegal aliens in 2011 using the same address in Atlanta, Ga.

67) Used tax money to pay federal employees to organize protests against George Zimmerman Obama actually used tax money to pay federal employees to organize protests against George Zimmerman in 2012.

68) Illegally continued giving foreign aid to Egypt after it had a coup The Obama administration said it would illegally continue giving foreign aid to Egypt after its coup.

69) Broke promise to end Bush’s surveillance of U.S. citizens who were not suspected of committing a crime Obama lied when he said he would end Bush’s illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens not suspected of committing a crime.

70) Falsely guaranteed that people could keep their doctor Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said: “Here is a guarantee that I’ve made… If you’ve got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor.” This was a complete lie.

71) Illegally seized a privately owned gun from a law abiding citizen After a jury found George Zimmerman not guilty, the Obama administration announced it would seize his gun anyway, a violation of both the double jeopardy clause of the U.S. Constitution and the Fifth Amendment.

72) Illegally prevented individual employees of small businesses from choosing their own plan during the first year of Obamacare Obamacare requires that individual employees of small businesses be allowed to choose their own insurance plan during the first year of Obamacare, but the Obama administration kept them from doing so.

73) Illegally avoided enforcing the required income verification of people who receive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges The Obama administration refuses to verify the income of people who receive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges.

74) Illegally delayed the caps on out of pocket health care payments without Congressional approval Obama once again illegally rewrote Obamacare by delaying payment caps for one year.

75) Falsely said the NSA review was being conducted by an “independent” body Obama assigned National Intelligence Director James Clapper, who had falsely testified to Congress that the NSA was not collecting information on U.S. citizens, to establish an “independent” investigation of NSA surveillance. The list doesn’t need to end at 75:

76) Nominated a telecommunications lobbyist and Obama fundraiser to head the FCC
Obama nominated former cable TV lobbyist and Obama fundraiser Tom Wheeler to head the FCC in 2013. Wheeler had previously been the head of the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, which is a lobbying organization for the cable TV industry.

77) Tried to violate defendants’ right to a fair trial In August 2013, Reuters reported: “A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.
Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin – not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges. The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to “recreate” the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant’s Constitutional right to a fair trial. If defendants don’t know how an investigation began, they cannot know to ask to review potential sources of exculpatory evidence – information that could reveal entrapment, mistakes or biased witnesses.”

78) Threatened internet service providers with contempt of court if they did not install surveillance software The Obama administration had pressured internet service providers to install surveillance software in 2013 so that it could monitor internet traffic without a warrant, a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment. The ISPs who refused were later threatened by the administration with contempt of court.

Obama Issued Massive Ammunition Ban Day Before Leaving Office

https://whiskeytangotexas.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/o-in-uniform.jpg

In early December SHTFplan contributor Jeremiah Johnson warned the inauguration was still a long way off and that we should never underestimate a Marxist with an army of oligarchs to lean on. It turns out that Johnson’s warnings were right on target, as we have learned over the last couple of weeks that President Obama and officials in his administration moved feverishly to implement new rules and regulations with last minute initiatives.

One such regulation, which seemingly disappeared within the hustle and bustle of inauguration day, was a new order issued by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe just 12 hours before our new President was sworn into office.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe, an Obama appointee, ordered a new ammunition ban for certain federal lands on Thursday–his last full day in office.

The ban, which took effect immediately, eliminates the use of lead-based ammunition on federal lands like national parks and wildlife refuges, as well as any other land administered by the Fish and Wildlife Service.The ban is expected to have a major impact on much of the hunting that takes place on federal lands across the United States as lead-based ammunition is widely legal and used throughout the country.

Ashe said the order was necessary to protect wildlife from exposure to lead.

That may seem like a big win for the anti-gun left, but The National Shooting Sports Foundation has already leapt into action:

“This directive is irresponsible and driven not out of sound science but unchecked politics,” said Lawrence Keane, the group’s senior vice president.

 

The timing alone is suspect. This directive was published without dialogue with industry, sportsmen, and conservationists. The next director should immediately rescind this and, instead, create policy based upon scientific evidence of population impacts with regard to the use of traditional ammunition.”

As we noted earlier, President Trump has a lot of work to do to reverse the damage caused by the Obama administration.

Reversing this asinine ammunition ban is a good start.

Horrible Truths About Obama’s Legacy (video)

On January 20, 2009, President Barack Obama took office on a platform of “hope” and “change” for the United States of America. As Obama has completed his final day as President of the United States, Stefan Molyneux reviews his accomplishments, failures and legacy in the annals of American history.

Getting back to the Constitution is no longer an option for most politicians. They use it as a prop. Sure, they take an oath before God to uphold it and vote and terms of its limitations, but for them, God is a myth.

Obama was just a chicken hawk who waged wars from bunkers, supported terrorists and performed weekly extra-judicial drone executions.

Thousands Of Hillary & Obama Loyalists Can’t Find Jobs

https://fellowshipofminds.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/hillary-supporters-crying3.jpg?w=500&h=333

Sarah Wheaton reports for Politico, Jan. 7, 2017:

“The job market is about to get even more crowded for Washington Democrats, as thousands of Obama appointees join the hundreds of Clinton campaign staffers looking for employment.

There’s rarely been less demand for their services.

The Trump tornado is tearing up post-election planning around the Beltway. It’s not just that those 4,000 administration jobs are no longer available to Hillary for America alumni, or that failed Senate candidates like Russ Feingold and Katie McGinty won’t be able to hire their staff on the Hill. There are also the lobbying firms, trade associations and corporate government affairs offices that are pitching senior Obama aides’ resumes into the round file while scrambling to hire operatives with Republican connections.

It’s insult to injury for a generation of young operatives who are still managing their shock and grief from Hillary Clinton’s loss. And for those who want to fight to keep … Obama’s legacy from being erased, there aren’t a lot of places ready to pay them to do it.”

Hillary and Obama’s useful idiots aren’t just finding it difficult to find government jobs, the private sector doesn’t want them either. From Politico:

“One [Obama] administration official said he was deep into negotiations with two tech companies in early November, but after the election, ‘there was a pretty clear about-face.’

One of the tech companies’ offices got in touch the day after the election stating that they needed to ‘re-scope the role in light of the results.’ The other company, the official said, was ‘far less euphemistic in saying we need Republicans, not Democrats.’”

Some Obama alumni useful idiots have found jobs in Silicon Valley, but Hillary’s useful idiots appear to be having a harder time, both emotionally and practically. Being the precious snowflakes that they are, Hillary’s useful idiots whine they’ve “lost their bearings,” rattled by “the differences in Trump’s values from those represented by Obama and Clinton.”

After repeatedly seeing job postings looking for Republican connections, former Hillary staffer Anastasia Kessler-Dellaccio says she “quite literally stripped out all of the Hillary stuff” out of her C.V. She added, “I have friends who even on LinkedIn have removed any Democratic Party alignment because they’re afraid if employers see too much Hillary stuff they’re not going to get a job.”

https://fellowshipofminds.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/anastasia-dellaccio.jpg?w=258&h=300

Hey, Anastasia. If you really want to find reputable work, I suggest you put another pic of yourself on your LinkedIn page instead of the one you now have (see above). That is, assuming the employment you’re seeking is not one of those alleged hookers allegedly hired by Trump to allegedly urinate on a bed allegedly slept in by Obama in allegedly the Moscow Ritz-Carlton.

Obama Designates Election Systems As “Critical Infrastructure” In Last Minute Power Grab

In a stunning last minute power grab by the Obama administration with just 14 days left in his Presidency, the Department of Homeland Security released a statement this evening officially declaring state election systems to be “critical infrastructure.”  The statement from DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson defines “election infrastructure” as “storage facilities, polling places, centralized vote tabulations locations, voter registration databases, voting machines” and all “other systems” to manage the election process…so pretty much everything.

I have determined that election infrastructure in this country should be designated as a subsector of the existing Government Facilities critical infrastructure sector. Given the vital role elections play in this country, it is clear that certain systems and assets of election infrastructure meet the definition of critical infrastructure, in fact and in law.

I have reached this determination so that election infrastructure will, on a more formal and enduring basis, be a priority for cybersecurity assistance and protections that the Department of Homeland Security provides to a range of private and public sector entities. By “election infrastructure,” we mean storage facilities, polling places, and centralized vote tabulations locations used to support the election process, and information and communications technology to include voter registration databases, voting machines, and other systems to manage the election process and report and display results on behalf of state and local governments.

Of course, it’s likely not a coincidence that the DHS made this announcement just hours after the “intelligence community” declassified their “Russian Hacking” propaganda which basically noted that RT has a very effective social media distribution platform while once again providing absolutely no actual evidence.

https://i2.wp.com/www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user230519/imageroot/2017/01/06/2017.01.06%20-%20Jeh%20and%20Obama_0.JPG

Johnson’s statement goes on to note that while many “state and local election officials are opposed to this designation” he went ahead with his decision anyway, because that’s just what the Obama administration does.

Prior to reaching this determination, my staff and I consulted many state and local election officials; I am aware that many of them are opposed to this designation. It is important to stress what this designation does and does not mean. This designation does not mean a federal takeover, regulation, oversight or intrusion concerning elections in this country. This designation does nothing to change the role state and local governments have in administering and running elections.

The designation of election infrastructure as critical infrastructure subsector does mean that election infrastructure becomes a priority within the National Infrastructure Protection Plan. It also enables this Department to prioritize our cybersecurity assistance to state and local election officials, but only for those who request it. Further, the designation makes clear both domestically and internationally that election infrastructure enjoys all the benefits and protections of critical infrastructure that the U.S. government has to offer. Finally, a designation makes it easier for the federal government to have full and frank discussions with key stakeholders regarding sensitive vulnerability information.

Particularly in these times, this designation is simply the right and obvious thing to do.

Of course, one of the most vocal opponents of this move has been Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp who recently told Politico it is nothing more than an attempt to “subvert the Constitution to achieve the goal of federalizing elections under the guise of security.”

During an earlier interview with the site Nextgov, Kemp warned: “The question remains whether the federal government will subvert the Constitution to achieve the goal of federalizing elections under the guise of security.” Kemp told POLITICO he sees a “clear motivation from this White House” to expand federal control, citing Obama’s health care law, the Dodd-Frank financial-reform legislation and the increased role of the Education Department in local schools.

To some election officials, this sounds like the first stage of a more intrusive plan.

“I think it’s kind of the nose under the tent,” said Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos, a Democrat. “What I think a lot of folks get concerned about [is] when the federal government says, ‘Well, look, we’re not really interested in doing that, but we just want to give you this,’ and then all of a sudden this leads to something else.”

Meanwhile, Kemp continued on by noting that “this administration only has 15 days left in its term” and to make such a critical decision during the 11th hour “smacks of partisan politics.”

But we’re sure it’s nothing, Obama doesn’t really strike us as the type to play the “partisan politics” game.

Tragic Downfall of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

https://i2.wp.com/c1.nrostatic.com/sites/default/files/styles/original_image_with_cropping/public/uploaded/consumer-financial-protection-bureaus-tragic-failures.jpgSen. Elizabeth Warren and CFPB director Richard Cordray on Capitol Hill, September 2014. (Reuters photo: Jonathan Ernst)

Conceived as a government watchdog with noble aims, the CFPB was doomed by a structure that made it an inherently political agency.

On October 11, 2016, in PHH Corp. v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals found the CFPB’s structure unconstitutional and “fixed” it by empowering the president to remove the agency’s director at will. Sounds dull, but this is a tragic story.

Metamorphosis:

In 1988, during my first year of law school, I met a young professor named Elizabeth Warren. She was like a tornado — energetic, fascinating, and scary. She was also a Republican. Despite that last bit of trivia, she hadn’t changed much when Americans began to notice her two decades later.

In fact, a Reagan Republican might have written her 2007 article “Unsafe at Any Rate,” which proposed a new regulatory agency to help consumers understand credit products by simplifying disclosures and ending deceptive industry practices. Free-market economists would approve of her rationale for a “Financial Product Safety Commission:”

To be sure, creating safer marketplaces is not about protecting consumers from all possible bad decisions. . . . Terms hidden in the fine print or obscured with incomprehensible language, unexpected terms, reservation of all power to the seller with nothing left for the buyer, and similar tricks and traps have no place in a well-functioning market. . . . When markets work, they produce value for both buyers and sellers, both borrowers and lenders. But the basic premise of any free market is full information. When a lender can bury a sentence at the bottom of 47 lines of text saying it can change any term at any time for any reason, the market is broken.

Over the next two years, the economy collapsed, Democrats gained control of Congress and the White House, and Warren grew famous criticizing big banks in congressional hearings. She lobbied Democrats to include her agency in their Wall Street–reform legislation, arguing that effective enforcement of consumer-protection laws required a regulator independent from politicians beholden to the financial industry. The Democrats had a better idea: They would make her agency independent from Republicans.

Circumventing the Constitution took two steps. First, Democrats inserted a few clever workarounds into the Dodd-Frank Act, which created the CFPB on July 21, 2010. Commissions such as the one Warren first proposed are ostensibly bipartisan, so a president-appointed director would lead the new agency. Since there might be a Republican president one day, the director would be practically irremovable after Senate confirmation to a five-year term that could extend indefinitely until the next director’s confirmation. To prevent future Republican-led Congresses from cutting the bureau’s budget, funding would be guaranteed through Federal Reserve profits rather than taxpayer dollars.

Next, the enlarged new agency would be staffed with Democrats, top to bottom. There would not be a Republican director nominee for at least five years, and if one was ever confirmed, entrenched left-wing managers could undermine “attempts to weaken consumer protection.” The plan wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty good.

Exclusion:

Warren, who had hoped to be the CFPB’s first director, led the one-year agency-building process. She chose loyal Democrats to be her senior deputies; they hired like-minded middle managers, who in turn screened lower-level job seekers. It was too risky for interviewers to discuss politics, so mistakes were possible. I was one of them.

As a Jewish graduate of a liberal college living on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, I fit the stereotypical Democratic profile. In fact, my primary influences were my business-school professors at the University of Chicago, the epicenter of free-market capitalism. I supported the agency Warren proposed in 2007 for the same reason I had worked at the Securities and Exchange Commission — accurate information improves markets’ efficiency. I had not read important sentences at the bottom of the Dodd-Frank Act’s thousands of lines of text.

In March of 2011, I interviewed with Richard Cordray, the pre-operational agency’s new enforcement chief. By May, I had surrendered my prized rent-stabilized apartment and moved to Washington to be the CFPB’s 13th enforcement attorney.

I would not have been so lucky two months later. As screening techniques improved, Republicans were more easily identified and rejected. Political discrimination was not necessarily illegal, but attempts to hide it invited prohibited race, gender, religion, and age discrimination. In retrospect, the Office of Enforcement’s hiring process, which was typical for the bureau, violated more laws than a bar-exam hypothetical.

Job seekers interviewed with two pairs of attorneys and most senior managers. All Office of Enforcement employees were invited to attend the weekly hiring meetings, where interviewers summarized the applicants. Any attendee could voice an opinion before each candidate’s verdict was rendered; even a single strong objection was usually fatal. Note taking was strictly forbidden, and interviewers destroyed their records after the meetings. I never missed one.

Clear verbal and non-verbal signals quickly emerged. The most common, “I don’t think he believes in the mission” was code for “he might not be a Democrat.” At one meeting, Kent Markus, a former Clinton-administration lawyer who had joined the bureau as Cordray’s deputy, remarked that an applicant under consideration “sounds like a good liberal to me.” After a few seconds of nervous laughter and eye contact around the room, Markus recognized his slip. “I didn’t say that,” he awkwardly joked. The episode so unnerved one attorney that he never attended another hiring meeting.

Applicants who had represented financial-industry clients were routinely rejected, depriving the bureau of critical expertise and business perspective. A memorable exception sought to become only the second African-American female enforcement attorney. Following an hour-long debate that would have doomed most applicants, her verdict was postponed pending additional interviews. Her prospects looked good at a subsequent meeting until someone expressed concerns over her frequent use of the F word. She survived a second excruciating hour of debate, and worked for the CFPB just long enough to become a partner at a big law firm.

White men over 40 received the opposite treatment. One attorney’s résumé was so spectacular that interviewers struggled to come up with plausible excuses to reject him. Finally, someone blurted out, “For the love of God, don’t hire him!” Cordray, who always spoke last, had no choice. He asked that the rejection letter be delayed until he could call the Supreme Court justice who had left a voicemail recommending the man.

Coronation:

Warren would have faced less opposition to being the chair of a bipartisan commission, and might have been confirmed before the 2010 midterm elections restored Republicans’ Senate filibuster and House majority. Instead, her efforts to charm Congress failed and she was heartbroken when the president declined to nominate her as director. She left the agency she had conceived and nurtured on its birthday, July 21, 2011. Biblical allusions to original sin and expulsion from the Garden of Eden were spoiled when she was elected Massachusetts’ junior senator later that year.

On July 17, 2011, the president nominated Cordray to lead the bureau. The soft-spoken Ohio Democrat and University of Chicago alumnus — a former Jeopardy champion and state attorney general who had clerked for Judge Robert Bork and two conservative Supreme Court justices — was literally and strategically a smart choice.

But in the rush to pass the Dodd-Frank Act, Democrats had made a drafting error that limited the CFPB’s most important powers until the bureau had its first director. Republicans vowed to use that leverage to filibuster any nomination until Democrats revised the bureau’s structure and funding.

Cordray was preparing for his confirmation hearing when I e-mailed him one of my favorite Ronald Reagan quotes:

“Free men engaged in free enterprise build better nations with more and better goods and services, higher wages and higher standards of living for more people. But free enterprise is not a hunting license”

He still hadn’t decided how to use the quote when I bumped into him in the office late one night. I asked if he was studying harder than he had for Jeopardy, and for the next half hour he reeled off almost every question he’d been asked a quarter-century earlier. He seemed as impressed by my correct answers as I was by his memory.

On January 4, 2012, the president bypassed the filibuster with a legally suspect recess appointment. Cordray used my Reagan quote in the opening statement of his first Senate testimony as director. Finally, on July 16, 2013, with the Supreme Court decision that clarified the recess appointment’s unconstitutionality a year away and Democrats threatening to eliminate the filibuster through a change in Senate rules, Republicans abandoned the fight. Cordray was confirmed, intensifying partisan acrimony.

Secrecy:

From 2011 to 2016, Republicans regularly passed legislation to restructure the CFPB as a bipartisan commission and bring its funding under the congressional appropriations process. Democrats labeled and rejected all changes as attempts to weaken consumer protection.

The CFPB itself was defined by this existential threat, driven to paranoid secrecy and obsessive self-promotion. It viewed Republican legislative-oversight initiatives as insincere attacks, sometimes appropriately so. But its stonewalling of Congress, and even of its own inspector general, was shocking.

A knowledgeable friend within the bureau once debriefed me on the unit that handled oversight requests. The unwritten policy of its supervising attorneys, and in particular of one former Democratic Senate staffer, was “never give them what they ask for.” When the inspector general complained to Cordray about that supervisor, Cordray took no action because she had accepted a job in the White House. Another former Democratic staffer replaced her. Soon, a career professional in the unit who had resisted pressure to engage in witness coaching and other unethical practices was reprimanded for insubordination and reassigned. The inspector general investigated and issued a report to Cordray that concluded the reprimand was unwarranted and the supervisors had engaged in obstruction.

My own experience as a House Financial Services Committee staffer in 2015 left me no doubt the debriefing was accurate. In one episode, unbeknownst to the CFPB, the committee had obtained internal documents that showed the bureau planned to send discrimination-restitution checks to thousands of Caucasian car buyers — the only way to distribute the restitution fund it had extracted from an auto-finance company based on trumped-up allegations that car dealers had charged higher interest rates on loans to minority customers. The committee’s chairman sent Cordray a letter precisely describing and requesting the documents and related information. I was appalled by the response.

The oversight lawyers sent almost none of the requested information or documents, together with a letter from Cordray pretending the bureau had provided everything. I spent days drafting e-mails demanding either the omitted items or a declaration that they did not exist. Each time, the supervisor simply replied that the chairman’s inquiry was “better suited” to a private briefing with committee staff. Subsequent committee subpoenas fared no better. CFPB enforcement attorneys would have bankrupted a company whose lawyers used similar tactics to stonewall the bureau.

https://www.nationalreview.com/sites/default/files/cfpb-cordray-b.jpg

Publicity:

The flip side of the CFPB’s secrecy was its single-minded pursuit of publicity. External Affairs was the bureau’s most powerful division. Headlines drove and often hindered decision-making and operations, as I witnessed first hand.

Shortly after his nomination, Cordray gathered senior enforcement attorneys to discuss an op-ed by Bill McLucas, my first SEC enforcement director. The piece urged the CFPB to adopt the SEC’s Wells process and allow potential defendants to submit their cases directly to the director before he approved lawsuits and other enforcement actions. Everyone at the table rejected the idea, but I stressed the importance of fairness and due process, especially when legal expenses could destroy an innocent defendant. Cordray agreed. I would draft the procedures.

The working group added restrictions to discourage submissions, like strict page limits and a 14-day deadline. I named it the Notice and Opportunity to Respond and Advise, or NORA, process. Everybody liked the friendly, feminine acronym.

However, External Affairs decided “NORA” wasn’t testing well with journalists, and renamed it “Early Warning Notice.” On Saturday, two days before the November 7, 2011 Early Warning Notice press release and media call, the general counsel’s office sent an e-mail postponing the rollout due to legal concerns. Minutes later, External Affairs replied that it was not their problem and there would be no postponement.

Within days of the rollout, a company threatened to sue for trademark infringement, and the original name was restored. I wish I could report that a NORA submission ever persuaded the director to decline an enforcement action.

Misery:

2011 was a wonderful time to work at the CFPB. Most of the employees had emigrated from distant cities, and they became each other’s second families. Five attorneys huddled with me in a small office dubbed the “Meat Locker” for its arctic air conditioning, and then changed locations every few weeks. My favorite was the “Warren Room,” a cluster of twelve cubicles permeated by non-stop clatter from a nearby ping-pong table.

We pitched ideas for the first investigations. Mine involved the currency-exchange rates credit cards use to convert foreign charges to U.S. dollars. Loud boos and cries of “Who cares about rich tourists?” filled the room. I argued that many international travelers are students and retirees, and the law protects everyone. Plus, we should show wealthier people the CFPB helps them, too. Cordray agreed, and approved my investigation.

Things changed after the recess appointment. Markus, the new enforcement chief, exacerbated hiring biases by soliciting anonymous oral comments about colleagues competing for twelve mid-level supervisor positions. Similar illegal practices throughout the bureau resulted in a dearth of real-world experience, and then socialistic management schemes camouflaged by new-age nomenclature.

Enforcement had issue groups, issue teams, working groups, strategy teams, investigation teams, and litigation teams. Individual initiative was forbidden — investigation ideas were to be submitted to the collective even before preliminary Internet research. An issue group took custody of my exchange-rate investigation and aborted it.

The “us against the world” culture that was exhilarating in a startup became debilitating in a mature agency. Internal policies to minimize record-keeping deprived the CFPB’s enemies of statistics, but limited management tools. External criticism was dismissed as disingenuous, good advice ignored. Problems that could not be acknowledged could not be fixed. Morale and productivity deteriorated. The employees unionized.

There were a few winners, most with political connections, and many more losers. Moderates who objected were marginalized or ostracized.

Leonard Chanin, a 20-year veteran of the Federal Reserve, was the rule making division’s first leader. During meetings, I was humbled by his dignified intellect and mastery of financial laws. In 2013, I asked him why he’d left the bureau. With characteristic understatement, he replied, “I thought it was going to be a professional agency.”

Other employees had fewer options. I once shared a cab with an enforcement attorney who’d had several drinks and was so despondent over her treatment at work that I was terrified she would harm herself.

Discrimination:

During my job interview, Cordray asked what I thought Enforcement should do first. I said there was plenty of low-hanging fruit like credit-report errors, inscrutable fine print, and fraud to keep us busy until the skeptics got comfortable. He agreed.

Car dealers were the highest-hanging fruit — the Dodd-Frank Act explicitly exempted them from the CFPB’s jurisdiction. A month after his recess appointment, Cordray approved a resource-intensive campaign to stop dealers from negotiating interest rates on car loans, a critical profit source. The comically aggressive plan involved guessing car buyers’ races from their names and addresses, using manipulated statistics and the controversial disparate-impact legal doctrine to label dealer lending discriminatory, and accusing finance companies of discrimination for purchasing dealers’ loans at competitive market prices.

The original and least controversial use of the disparate-impact doctrine, which allows discrimination to be proven by statistics alone, was in employment cases. Unfortunately, a September 2013 confidential Deloitte consulting report found that CFPB minority employees received below-average performance-review scores — much stronger disparate-impact evidence than the bureau was using for dealers. Union officials were briefed on, but not given, the report.

Cordray still had not fixed the performance-review system on March 6, 2014, when a perfect storm of the CFPB’s flaws erupted. The report’s findings were leaked to the media, and Republicans pounced. During several embarrassing congressional hearings, employees described disturbing discrimination problems at the agency, like a unit nicknamed “the Plantation.”

That summer, I ran into a CFPB-union official who had shivered with me in the Meat Locker three years earlier. I said Cordray’s senior managers must have been keeping him in the dark. “No,” he replied, “Rich knows everything, the smallest details. He’s changed. He’s over at the White House playing basketball with the president. He’s not the same guy.”

Following the hearings, the CFPB attorney who had defended the bureau against Equal Employment Opportunity claims was chosen to run its EEO program. Another year passed before an African American woman in the EEO office testified to Congress that the problems had worsened; the CFPB was more concerned with preventing bad publicity than with preventing discrimination.

https://www.nationalreview.com/sites/default/files/cfpb-cordray.jpg

Abuse:

The Dodd-Frank Act prohibited “abusive acts or practices” that take unreasonable advantage of someone’s inability to protect their interests. The prohibition did not apply to the CFPB.

Enforcement was still hiring and training attorneys when the recess appointment was announced at the beginning of 2012. Critical procedures had not been written, there was no management structure, and administrative trials were a distant dream.

Around that time, the Department of Housing and Urban Development transferred its investigation of PHH, a huge mortgage originator, to the CFPB. Most laws contain a statute of limitations that prevents lawsuits from being filed too many years after alleged violations occurred. Chuckles and sighs of relief filled Enforcement’s weekly meeting after an attorney announced that PHH had granted him a “tolling agreement” to temporarily stop the statute-of-limitations clock. Somebody sneered, “Suckers!”

In May of 2012, PHH received a massive civil investigative demand — basically, a subpoena for documents and information issued by government agencies such as the CFPB. Enforcement’s brutal Rules of Investigation gave the company 20 days to review the interrogatories and document requests, meet with enforcement attorneys, and petition the director to scale back the CID. Cordray denied PHH’s application for a two-week extension of the filing deadline.

In July of 2012, I got a call from a law-school classmate who suggested I join his law firm. By September, visitors to my new office at the firm could read Cordray’s recommendation letter, which hung next to a photo of us shaking hands moments after he was sworn in.

Critical procedures had not been written, there was no management structure, and administrative trials were a distant dream.

On September 20, 2012, Cordray issued his decision rejecting all of PHH’s modification requests. I had doubts about the opinion, which appeared to punish the company’s defiance, even before I ran into one of PHH’s lawyers the following January. I asked what had gone wrong. “Nothing,” he replied. “We just assumed the CFPB conducted itself like other agencies.”

A month later, I understood. My first CFPB-target client was a small-business owner whose twelve-year commercial relationship with a local bank was governed by the same law PHH would later be accused of violating. In 2011, the bank’s regulator had withdrawn its blessing from the arrangement, charged the bank a small fine, and transferred jurisdiction to the bureau. The file collected dust for over a year before Enforcement asked the man to sign a tolling agreement that only a lawyer would recognize as permanent. Fortunately, he contacted me first.

The man felt he’d done nothing wrong, but uncertainty about the investigation would force him to lay off employees. I called the enforcement attorney and offered to come right over and discuss a settlement. When I declined the tolling agreement, he said I had a conflict of interest, hung up, and spent the next month trying to find one. He gave up after I reminded his supervisors that interfering with my client’s constitutional right to counsel was a serious ethics violation.

For the first two hours of the subsequent settlement conference, the attorney refused to discuss a settlement, and continued to press for the tolling agreement. I insisted he make an offer. Finally, he did — ten times more than the bank had paid. I accepted and asked for the settlement documents. Instead, the next day he sent a civil complaint and threatened to sue within 24 hours if my client didn’t sign a tolling agreement.

I replied that my client wanted to make a NORA submission before the director approved the lawsuit. No scenario could have been more appropriate: The legal expenses would crush the man’s business and cost employees their jobs; he’d had no opportunity to present evidence or tell Cordray his side of the story; and Enforcement hadn’t even conducted an investigation.

The response was swift. I was informed that the NORA process was discretionary and the director felt it was not in the bureau’s interests to let my client present his case — request denied. The poor man signed a tolling agreement, but not the irrevocable one Enforcement had sent him before he had a lawyer.

Injustice:

During my first-year legal-ethics seminar, we discussed a scene from A Man for All Seasons in which Will Roper urges Sir Thomas More to arrest Richard Rich, an evil man who has broken no laws. When Roper says he would cut down every law in England to get at the Devil, More replies:

Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you — where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat?

Bruce Mann, Professor Warren’s husband, taught the seminar. Perhaps the film’s ending — More’s execution based on Rich’s perjured testimony — inspired Warren to cut down the Constitution to get at the banks.

SEC enforcement attorneys are often asked, “Is my client a target?” They’re trained to respond, “SEC investigations are a search for the truth — they don’t have targets, they have subjects.” In 2011, I mentioned CFPB attorneys’ exclusive use of “target” to Cordray. He liked the SEC’s practice, and approved the internal procedure I had written to adopt it. Whenever he slipped and used “target” at meetings, he smiled and corrected himself.

By 2013, no other label worked. For each issue the strategy team identified, one or two companies were investigated. The CFPB’s complaint database contained grievances against almost every financial business. Enforcement targeted the companies with the most revenue — what it called the “chokepoints” — rather than those with the most complaints.

Enforcement’s internal procedures restricted the contents of investigation files, about the only thing the CFPB had to turn over to defendants before administrative trials. One of the procedures’ drafters told me that withholding exculpatory evidence from targets was ethical because the bureau was like any civil litigant — it did everything it could within the law to win.

Targets were almost certain to write a check, especially if they were accused of subjective “unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices.” Even the size of the checks didn’t depend on actual wrongdoing — during investigations, Enforcement demanded targets’ financial statements to calculate the maximum fines they could afford to pay.

Defendants who chose to fight the bureau could not seek relief in federal court until all administrative processes were exhausted, despite those processes’ being a farce — Floyd Mayweather Jr. would envy Enforcement’s record in appeals to the director. And even if a case did make it that far, the courts were bound to defer to the director’s judgment unless he had clearly misinterpreted a law. With no meaningful opportunity to defend themselves, many businesses were forced to pay millions of dollars, regardless of guilt or harm to consumers.

Neglect:

Despite these advantages, the CFPB’s misplaced priorities kept it from protecting consumers during the most widespread fraud in recent history.

On September 8, 2016, Wells Fargo paid the CFPB, the Los Angeles city attorney, and the comptroller of the currency $185 million in penalties for bank employees’ having opened millions of unauthorized customer accounts since 2011. External Affairs’ media blitz and the bureau’s $100 million share of the penalties created the illusion that Enforcement had led a heroic investigation. CFPB supporters, with Pavlovian predictability, shamed Republicans for attempting to weaken the agency.

But the settlement reserved only a few million dollars in restitution for victims. Enforcement didn’t advance consumer lawsuits by making the bank admit wrongdoing, and it didn’t do much to help criminal prosecutors beyond giving the Department of Justice legally mandated evidence.

Congressional hearings revealed that two years of examinations, thousands of bank-employee firings, and numerous complaints had failed to get the bureau’s attention before the Los Angeles Times published a detailed exposé late in 2013. Worse yet, from 2013 to 2016, the CFPB took no action while the bank continued the incentive program that drove the unauthorized account openings. Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf and Carrie Tolstedt, the executive overseeing the program, earned tens of millions of dollars. Tolstedt retired with a huge nest egg two months before the settlement.

The CFPB had waited while the city attorney and OCC completed their investigations, and then negotiated its headline-grabbing penalty. A month after the settlement, it was clear that simply taking regulatory action to highlight the severity of the fraud had triggered the real wake-up call for bank executives. Wells Fargo’s stock lost billions of dollars in value, and its board clawed back $60 million from Stumpf and Tolstedt before firing Stumpf. The $100 million penalty may deter future violations, but no more so than a smaller fine or a CFPB lawsuit would have three years earlier.

During Senate hearings, Cordray implied that Enforcement had stood down because all available personnel were busy investigating deceptive credit-card add-on products and other violations. In doing so, he inadvertently revealed that the campaign to expand the bureau’s reach to car dealers had diverted limited resources from mission-critical tasks.

Reckoning:

Fortunately for PHH, the CFPB had accused it of violating a specific mortgage law. For two decades, HUD had interpreted the law and provided guidance that allowed business relationships like the ones Enforcement had investigated at PHH; payments to the company and its affiliates above the reasonable market value of services rendered were deemed illegal kickbacks. An administrative-law judge, following HUD’s interpretation, ordered PHH to refund consumers $6.4 million in excess payments. PHH appealed to the director.

Cordray’s decision was stunning: HUD’s interpretation was wrong; the CFPB was not bound by the mortgage law’s three-year statute of limitations; all payments during the last eight years were kickbacks; PHH didn’t owe $6.4 million, it owed $109 million.

Centuries before a 2016 Nobel Prize winner catalogued the havoc wrought by government officials with God on their side, the founding fathers put checks and balances into the Constitution to limit it. By demonstrating the inevitable consequences of absolute power, Cordray had invited the appellate court to revoke it.

Parts of the decision by the three-judge panel were obvious: HUD’s interpretation of the law was correct; Cordray’s attempt to reinterpret it retroactively violated PHH’s due-process rights; the CFPB could not disregard deadlines in the laws it enforced.

The rest of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s 100-page opinion, an eloquent dissertation on liberty, democracy, and justice, answered questions that had been debated for six years. The people elect the president. Executive agencies report to the president, who can remove their leaders at will. While the president cannot remove members of independent commissions, their power is tempered by bipartisan collaboration and transparency. The Dodd-Frank Act made the CFPB’s unelected director “the single most powerful official in the entire U.S. Government, other than the President,” and arguably more powerful in consumer financial-protection matters. The Constitution permits single-director executive agencies and independent commissions, but not single-director independent agencies. The most important words in the opinion were buried in footnote twelve: “An agency structure must be adjudged on the basis of what it permits to happen.”

By demonstrating the inevitable consequences of absolute power, Cordray had invited the appellate court to revoke it.

Judge Kavanaugh’s remedy was simple: He struck 18 words from the Dodd-Frank Act and announced, “The President of the United States now has the power to supervise and direct the Director of the CFPB, and may remove the Director at will at any time.” If the ruling were upheld, Warren’s agency would lose its independence. Democrats shrugged; they would undo the decision after winning the election, just 28 days away.

Shimon Peres’s death brought to mind parallels between the CFPB and the state of Israel. Both were established during a brief window of political opportunity created by sympathy for the victims of a catastrophe, both defined by existential threat, and both criticized for territorial expansion. Both might also have used the land-for-peace formula to resolve longstanding conflicts.

The CFPB’s metaphoric swap was Democrats’ restructuring the bureau as a bipartisan commission in exchange for Republicans’ recognizing the agency’s independence by blessing funding through the Federal Reserve. Unlike Israel, Democrats never offered the deal, even after losing everything but their Senate filibuster in the election.

Instead, on November 18, 2016, the CFPB petitioned the full court of appeals to rehear the case. If that fails, Democrats hope to exclude Republicans until Cordray’s term ends in 2018, or even until the 2020 election, by appealing to the Supreme Court. The strategy assumes President Trump cannot remove Cordray for cause — “inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office.”

Epilogue:

Late one evening in 2012, I entered the Farragut North metro station a few steps behind Cordray, who was talking on his cell phone. I kept my distance on the long descending escalator, but overheard snippets of the conversation. “That good plan, Kemosabe.” “You plenty wise, Kemosabe.” I remember thinking that his twelve-year-old son couldn’t possibly appreciate how lucky he was. Four years later, on March 16, 2016, Cordray testified before the House Financial Services Committee, which had published its copies of the documents the CFPB refused to provide because the chairman’s requests were “better suited to a briefing.” Representative Sean Duffy asked several pointed questions about the blatant stonewalling. Under oath, Cordray replied, “If you ask for responsive documents in an area, we give you the responsive documents we can.”

Absolutely Stunning – Leaked Audio of Secretary Kerry Reveals President Obama Intentionally Allowed Rise of ISIS…

“There are moments within investigative research when your jaw can stand agape as you recognize the scope of what you are reading or hearing.  A brutally down-played audio of Secretary John Kerry is just such an occasion”

– Sundance | The Conservative Tree House

https://s14-eu5.ixquick.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmultifiles.pressherald.com%2Fuploads%2Fsites%2F4%2F2015%2F09%2F721237_Obama-UN.JPEG-0df51.jpg&sp=cbc779198f0e8138c953e88dd4d8dcd0

♦ In August of 2014 President Obama (wearing a tan business suit) gave a press conference where he stated he “did not have a strategy” against ISIS. –Video Link

♦ Two months later, in October of 2014, Josh Earnest gave a press conference where he stated:  “Our ISIS strategy is dependent on something that does not yet exist” –Video Link

However, on September 30th 2016 the New York Times quietly released a leaked audio recording of Secretary John Kerry meeting with multiple factions associated within Syria.

When you listen to the audio recording (embed below) it becomes immediately obvious what was going on when both of those 2014 statements were made by the White House.  In addition, you discover why this jaw-dropping 2016 leak/story was buried by the U.S. media and how it connects to over 5 years of perplexing U.S. mid-east policy.

This evidence within this single story would/should forever remove any credibility toward the U.S. foreign policy under President Obama.  It also destroys the credibility of a large number of well known republicans.  What the recording reveals is substantive:

First, only regime change, the removal of Bashir Assad, in Syria was the goal for President Obama. This is admitted and outlined by Secretary John Kerry.

Secondly, in order to accomplish this primary goal, the White House was willing to watch the rise of ISIS by placing their bet that ISIS’s success would force Syrian President Bashir Assad to acquiesce toward Obama’s terms and step down.

Thirdly, in order to facilitate the two objectives, Obama and Kerry intentionally gave arms to ISIS and even, arguably, attacked a Syrian government military convoy to stop a strategic attack upon the Islamic extremists killing 80 Syrian soldiers.

Pause for a moment and consider those three points carefully before continuing.  Because this audio (below), along with accompanying research now surfacing, not only exposes these three points as truth – but also provides the specific evidence toward them.

The problem in the Obama/Kerry’s secret strategy became clear when ISIS grew in sufficient strength to give the White House optimism for the scheme – however, instead of capitulation Assad then turned to Russia for help.

When Russia came to aid Bashir Assad the Syrian Government began being able to defeat ISIS and the Islamic Extremist elements within Syria.  For the hidden plan of Obama/Kerry (and also McCain, Graham, et al), Russia defeating ISIS, al-Qaeda and al-Nusra, upended their objective.

The revelations within this leaked audio are simply astounding. The 40-minute discussion took place on the sidelines of a United Nations General Assembly in New York. The meeting took place at the Dutch Mission to the United Nations on Sept. 22nd 2016:

[…]  Kerry’s off-record conversation was apparently with two dozen ‘Syrian civilians’, all from US backed opposition-linked NGO’s in education and medical groups supposedly working in ‘rebel-held’ (aka terrorist-held) areas in Syria.

This opposition conclave also included ‘rescue workers’ which can only be ambassadors from the White Helmets, a pseudo NGO which serves as Washington and London’s primary PR front in pursuit of a “No Fly Zone’ in Syria, and it’s being bankrolled by the US, UK, EU and other coalition states to the tune of well over $100 million (so far). (link)

Listen to the audio.

Key Kerry moments at 02:00, and again at approximately 18:30 forward.

The discussion from 18:30 through to 29:00 are exceptionally revealing and should be listened to by anyone who has wondered what was going on in Syria.  Kerry even makes mention of the “Responsibility to Protect, or R2P” principle:

As of August, 2015, the Syrian conflict ‘has killed quarter of a million people’ 11,964 of those killed were children and 71,781 civilian deaths were recorded: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/syrian-conflict-has-killed-quarter-of-a-million-people-10446650.html

Against the backdrop of this recording we can reconcile so many historic issues.  We already know of a Second Presidential Finding Memo authorizing additional CIA covert action in 2012, this time in Syria. However, unlike the 2011 Libyan operation we do not know the operational name of the second action in 2012 Syria.

2012: WASHINGTON, Aug 1 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, U.S. sources familiar with the matter said.

Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the rebels oust Assad. (link)

Further consider how this Kerry audio tape, and the now transparent Obama policy toward Syria, absolutely confirms our previous research as it is contained with the Benghazi Brief surrounding Syria:

(JULY 2012) As they stood outside the commandeered government building in the town of Mohassen, it was hard to distinguish Abu Khuder’s men from any other brigade in the Syrian civil war, in their combat fatigues, T-shirts and beards.

But these were not average members of the Free Syrian Army. Abu Khuder and his men fight for al-Qaida. They call themselves the ghuraba’a, or “strangers”, after a famous jihadi poem celebrating Osama bin Laden’s time with his followers in the Afghan mountains, and they are one of a number of jihadi organisations establishing a foothold in the east of the country now that the conflict in Syria has stretched well into its second bloody year.

They try to hide their presence. “Some people are worried about carrying the [black] flags,” said Abu Khuder. “They fear America will come and fight us. So we fight in secret. Why give Bashar and the west a pretext?” But their existence is common knowledge in Mohassen. Even passers-by joke with the men about car bombs and IEDs.

According to Abu Khuder, his men are working closely with the military council that commands the Free Syrian Army brigades in the region. “We meet almost every day,” he said. “We have clear instructions from our [al-Qaida] leadership that if the FSA need our help we should give it. We help them with IEDs and car bombs. Our main talent is in the bombing operations.” Abu Khuder’s men had a lot of experience in bomb-making from Iraq and elsewhere, he added.

[…] Abu Khuder split with the FSA and pledged allegiance to al-Qaida’s organisation in Syria, the Jabhat al Nusra or Solidarity Front. He let his beard grow and adopted the religious rhetoric of a jihadi, becoming a commander of one their battalions.

“The Free Syrian Army has no rules and no military or religious order. Everything happens chaotically,” he said. “Al-Qaida has a law that no one, not even the emir, can break.

The FSA lacks the ability to plan and lacks military experience. That is what [al-Qaida] can bring. They have an organisation that all countries have acknowledged.

In the beginning there were very few. Now, mashallah, there are immigrants joining us and bringing their experience,” he told the gathered people. “Men from Yemen, Saudi, Iraq and Jordan. Yemenis are the best in their religion and discipline and the Iraqis are the worst in everything – even in religion.”

At this, one man in the room – an activist in his mid-30s who did not want to be named – said: “So what are you trying to do, Abu Khuder? Are you going to start cutting off hands and make us like Saudi? Is this why we are fighting a revolution?”

“[Al-Qaida’s] goal is establishing an Islamic state and not a Syrian state,” he replied. “Those who fear the organisation fear the implementation of Allah’s jurisdiction. If you don’t commit sins there is nothing to fear.” (link – more)

al-Qaeda’s goal was to establish the Islamic State, that’s the origin of ISIS.  Against the backdrop of ISIS formation in Syria, and understanding the Obama objectives were regime change first and foremost, we can now reconcile all of Obama’s foreign policy surrounding Syria.

President Obama, Secretary Clinton and later Secretary Kerry, together with John McCain, and the CIA tentacled team within the Republican party, were willing to support ISIS (under all factional names) in order to overthrow Bashir Assad…

THIS WAS THE POLICY.  Nothing else mattered.

Now, does THIS also begin to make more sense:

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/isis-brotherhood-1-kinzinger-mccain-mcmullin.jpg?w=768&h=232

Representative Adam Kinzinger, Senator John McCain, candidate Evan McMullin

What you are about to read is specifically how the Muslim Brotherhood, and ISIS, connect to the Republicans outlined above – and how their individual behaviors within the 2016 election begin to make sense.   Perhaps, like us, you will have an ah-ha moment.

The “Never Trump” coalition has always consisted of a few noisy and indecent politicians within Washington DC.  Senator Ben Sasse, Senator Jeff Flake and Representative Adam Kinzinger the most noteworthy and vitriolic.

Whenever CNN, or for that matter any media, want a republican voice to argue against Donald Trump, in the “current days’ outrage du jour”, they call upon Kinzinger first and foremost.   He seemingly loves the spotlight as much as he enjoys promoting himself on social media.  In essence, he’s a proud #NeverTrumper.

We’ll come back to Kinzinger and McMullin in a moment.  But first we must place the second set of puzzle pieces on the table.

When we did all the exhaustive research into the Benghazi Brief three years ago, one of the pictures that continued to draw our interest was this one:

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/mccain-in-syria.jpg

The picture above was taken during a time when Senator John McCain visited Syria, and the Western media were proclaiming there were “moderates” in the opposition to Bashir Assad.   Senator McCain proclaimed this 2012 visit to be meeting with the “Free Syrian Army”.   [Coincidentally, this was on the same trip where he met Ambassador Chris Stevens at the Benghazi courthouse in Libya for the last time].

However, at the same time McCain was trying to convince the world of moderate Syrian resistance, multiple voices within non-traditional journalism, and a large number of people doing independent research, reached the conclusion that al-qaeda and al-Nusra extremists had completely infiltrated the Syrian resistance groups, and a new militant Islamic network was forming.

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/no-islam-without-jihad.jpg

“2012 NO ISLAM WITHOUT JIHAD” – members of the Free Syrian Army. Abu Khuder and his men fight for al-Qaida. They call themselves the ghuraba’a, or “strangers”, after a famous jihadi poem celebrating Osama bin Laden’s time with his followers in the Afghan mountains, and they are one of a number of jihadi organisations establishing a foothold in the east of the country now that the conflict in Syria has stretched well into its second bloody year.
They try to hide their presence. “Some people are worried about carrying the [black] flags,” said Abu Khuder. “They fear America will come and fight us. So we fight in secret. Why give Bashar and the west a pretext?” But their existence is common knowledge in Mohassen. Even passers-by joke with the men about car bombs and IEDs.

That network ultimately evidenced and defined itself as the Islamic State, or ISIS.

In 2013 and 2014, even though ISIS initially did not have a name, as the hardline extremists in Syria became more openly visible, eventually the western media accepted Raqqa and Aleppo had become the de-facto center of Syrian ISIS operations.  In August of 2014 President Obama finally admitted the problem and stated his administration was caught off guard and did not have a strategy to combat them.

Back To The Photograph – The importance of the McCain photograph became increasingly interesting because ISIS as an extremist force became increasingly visible.  As a direct consequence we were able to identify the ideology of the people in the picture:

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/mccain-in-syria-2-detail-2.jpg

There has been some skepticism as to #2 being al-Baghdadi himself, and Senator John McCain has strongly refuted this claim.  However, there is more evidence to prove it is Baghdadi than to refute it’s not Baghdadi.  Person #2 looks just like him:

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/bagdadi.jpg

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/mccain-syria-8-1.jpg

In addition, one of the important bits of evidence to prove #2 is indeed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is actually found in #1 Abu Mosa (ISIS Press Officer).

There is absolutely no doubt that #1 is the (now dead) Islamic State Press Officer Abu Mosa.

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/abu-mosa-2.png

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/abu-mosa-dead.jpg

Abu Mosa was killed in August 2014.   In 2012, during organization, Baghdadi would have a man with this level of importance to the Islamic State around him at the time this picture was taken.

However, lets look at #5 – “Mouaz Moustafa”, because he is the current person that should be of interest to everyone in the 2016 presidential discussion.  Moustafa is the connective tissue per se’.   In the photograph, he’s also Senator McCain’s intermediary:

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/mccain-in-syria-2-detail.jpg

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/mccain-syria-9-1.jpg

Fast forward two intense years later and look where #5, Mouaz Moustafa shows up in 2014. And more specifically the two faces that show up with him:

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/kinzinger-3-w-mcmullin.jpg

Well lookie there.  During a trip to Turkey in 2014 to discuss arming Syrian rebel groups, under the auspices of fighting ISIS, you see Representative Adam Kinzinger appear.  Oh yeah, and who’s that other fellow circled in the meeting?  ….why that’s our anti-Trump candidate Evan McMullin.

Huh, fancy that.

Spotting Evan McMullin conspicuously standing there in the picture made us want to go back to the CNN file footage from the time and see if he was actually visible in the report they filed from Turkey.  Yup, he’s there alright.

Watch and spot him in the background during quite a bit of the footage:

Long before anyone heard about Evan McMullin running for President, there he is paling around with #NeverTrump Adam Kinzinger in Turkey chatting with the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates (guise SETF) who are essentially the political arm of ISIS under a differing name.

The declared purpose of the meeting was to discuss who and how to arm the entities within Syria.  However, just like in 2012/2013 these same Brotherhood voices in 2014 are simply trying to present themselves as one thing, only to gain the goal of another.  That’s ultimately the story behind the arms deals within The Benghazi Brief.  That’s the lesson that should have been learned if the truth contained within the brief were ever to have larger public interest.

Additionally, all that said – it’s connections like these that make other things, like the opposition to Donald Trump, make much more sense.

https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/isis-brotherhood-1-kinzinger-mccain-mcmullin.jpg?w=768&h=232

Things that help make other things make much more sense….

Fake News Spotlight

Can Mainstream News Really Be Credible When Six Corporations Control 90% Of America’s Media?

https://whiskeytangotexas.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/media-6-corp-bias.jpg?w=625


Natural News Announces Economic Boycott Of CNN Corporate Sponsors

CNN is the ultimate “fake news” network. There isn’t a day that goes by where CNN doesn’t deliberately fake a news story, distort a significant event for political purposes, or censor an important piece of news they don’t want their viewers to discover.

https://i0.wp.com/www.naturalnews.com/images/Tweet-vivelafra-TakeDownCNN.jpg

To even call CNN a “news” network is uproariously funny. This is the news outlet that deliberately conspired with Hillary Clinton to surreptitiously give her the debate questions in advance (cheating, in other words), that directed questions to Donald Trump which were engineered to destroy his credibility, and that systematically conspired with the DNC and the Clinton campaign to twist, distort and fabricate whatever information was required to place Hillary Clinton in the White House. (See Wikileaks disclosures.)

Check out the following compilation of all the journalists caught colluding with the Clinton campaign. This all came out in the Wikileaks dumps of John Podesta, and it shows how CNN reporters dominate the list of presstitutes who engaged in journalistic malpractice:

Thank you, President Obama. Thank you for not upholding your oath to the U.S. Constitution to protect America’s southern border. Thank you for illegally granting amnesty via executive action and avoiding the unnecessary hassles of passing the legislation through Congress. And thank you for your efforts in turning the United States of America into a third-world refugee camp.

Thank you, Obama, for your broad support of Islam and for labeling American citizens as bitter, xenophobic racists clinging to their guns and religion. I would also like to express my gratitude to you, your enablers, and all of the sycophantically corrupt, establishment politicians for near doubling the national debt of the United States these last eight years.

Another heartfelt expression of gratitude goes out to all of the media pundits, talking heads, newspaper columnists, Silicon Valley moguls as well as the proprietors, purveyors and contributors of actual fake news websites who contort themselves daily to support leftist politicians and the progressive agenda. Without the blind commitment of those who have facilitated the Cloward-Piven strategy of sacrificing America to the global elite banking establishment, it would have been far more difficult for Obama to fundamentally transform our country over the last eight years.

Indeed, without the help of the punditocratic media commentariat, the Obama administration might have been held accountable for the Fast and Furious scandal, NSA overreach, the IRS scandal, veteran death panels and illicit prisoner trades with America’s sworn enemies; not to mention the blaming of Benghazi on a YouTube video. Thanks for sweeping all of that under the proverbial rug. You should be proud.

Also, thank you President Obama for quietly signing your Executive Order 13603 in March of 2012, which nationalizes: “All commodities and products that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals”, “all forms of energy”, “all forms of civil transportation”, “all usable water from all sources”, “health resources: drugs, biological products, medical devices, materials, facilities, health supplies, services and equipment” as well as the forced “induction” of civilians in the event of “military conflicts, natural or man-caused disasters, or acts of terrorism within the United States.” Thanks for looking out for us and we appreciate you’re providence and protection.

Thank you, as well, to all of the uninformed voters and apathetic citizens who have supported their favored government bureaucrats either by demand or default, respectively, as our healthcare system was nationalized. This wonderful legislation not only required citizens to purchase a product for the first time in history as mandated by government decree, but it also diminished our personal and private relations with our chosen physicians as it simultaneously increased the cost of insurance on working individuals and families.

Thank you to all of the Hollywood movie stars, producers, directors and writers who, in their fanatical hubris, were so willing to share with us fans, plebs and serfs their enlightened wisdom both before and after the election. Without the guidance of film and TV actors, movie business minions and other self-perceived west coast luminaries who vastly overestimate both their intelligence and their importance; America would be far less prosperous and free today.

Thanks to all of the elderly hippies, aging boomers, welfare moochers; unicorn chasers, transgendered bathroom rights crusaders, shrieking feminists, rainbow dancing socialists; Black Lives Matter advocates of only select black lives, Never Trumper’s and the Millennial snowflake generation. Thank you for swallowing hook, line and sinker everything you have ever learned from television programming and propagandized news as you riot in the streets over a losing candidate whose vagina you valued more than honesty.

Thanks to those of you as well within the U.S. Department of Education for dumbing down a majority of the American generations over the last several decades while vastly increasing your taxpayer funded budgets over the same time period.

And how about those George Soros sponsored, Moveon.org election protesters rioting in the streets of American cities because their candidate lost an election? According to the Craigslist ads, some of them were paid $1,500 a week and even received bus rides to the staged areas. Isn’t America truly the land of opportunity? I have never been so proud. And we all should be very obliged to President Obama for supporting these protesters when he said:

“So, I would not advise people who feel strongly or who are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised during the course of the campaign, I wouldn’t advise them to be silent.”

And we should also be extremely grateful to former presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, for encouraging the rioters with her own words of support as follows:

“For the sake of our children and our families and our country, I ask you to stay engaged on every level. We need you. America needs your energy, your ambition, your talent and that’s how we get through this. That’s how we make our contribution to bend the arc of the moral universe towards justice. “

Thank you, Hillary, for helping the violent rioters to “get through” the next four years under Donald Trump until they can “bend the arc of the moral universe” back “towards justice”. You truly are an inspiration.

Thank you, mainstream media, for focusing so much more intently on Donald Trump’s unproven misogyny and phony Russian espionage in lieu of the treasonous obstruction of justice regarding Hillary Clinton’s State Department e-mails on her personal server and Anthony Wiener’s laptop. Thank you for not reporting on the mysterious financial shenanigans of the Clinton Foundation and thank you for daily crucifying James Comey and Julian Assange for revealing the facts that you super sleuths and modern day Edward R. Murrow’s refused to report. We the people definitely owe all of you a gigantic debt of gratitude for abnegating your solemn responsibilities as keepers of the Fourth Estate. You have served your globalist masters well. Thank you.

Furthermore, a great big “thank you” goes out to Google and various social media companies for their attempts to influence the U.S. presidential elections on behalf of Hillary Clinton and for recently announcing their plans to punish the internet websites they deem as propagators of “fake news”. Whew. We are all breathing a sigh of relief as you remove your adware from these dangerous sources of information all throughout the blogosphere. Thank you.

And, thank you, Deep State, for spying on citizens from all over the world while failing to prevent terrorism both at home and abroad. In spite of your failures to prevent Islamic massacres in places like Fort Hood, San Bernardino, Orlando, Paris, Nice and London; we feel very secure knowing your 1.5 billion-dollar, one million square-foot Utah Data Center and your recently revealed spy hub in New York City watches over us even as we sleep. I am very confident you will one day have the resources and technical savvy to hack an iPhone. You’re awesome.

And thank you, the corporations that spy on American citizens for the United States National Security Agency (NSA) including: AT&T, Verizon, Centurylink, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, IBM, Microsoft and so many more. Not only do we get great products and services at a full price, but we also get to have our Fourth Amendment rights violated at the same time. What a deal. Thank you.

Also, another huge “thank you” goes out to the Transportation Security Agency (TSA). Thank you, blue smurfs, for fondling little children in airport lines while feigning political correctness so you will never falsely profile any potential Islamic extremists. Great job.

Thank you Federal Reserve for reducing the value of the American dollar to a mere fraction of its original value since your creation in 1913. Excellent work. And what is totally amazing today is how you can so easily make money out of thin air without fear of ever being audited. You’re fantastic. Truly.

Thanks to Ford Motor Company for conceding to president elect Donald Trump by choosing not to move jobs to Mexico at the last minute. I haven’t seen such fear and trembling since the Iranians released the hostages on January 20, 1981 immediately after President Ronald Reagan’s inaugural address.

I would also like to personally thank all the turncoat RINO (i.e. Republicans in Name Only who not only lacked the balls, vision and desire to stand up to the tyranny of Globalism, but who were at the same time, so brave to stab their presidential candidate in the back during the 2016 election. Nice work.

There are so many others to thank during this season of gratitude. Time or space does not permit. Who am I forgetting?

In any event, I guess I just wanted to thank all of those mentioned above who have worked so hard to reduce the liberty of the American people as well as the future prospects and prosperity for our children. Thank you so much.

We definitely have come a long way from when the pilgrims first stepped off the Mayflower for the “Glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.” Just 395 years ago, the first Thanksgiving celebration took place. I wonder if Governor William Bradford’s campaign manager at that time had any interest in Spirit Cooking? Probably not. What a long, strange trip it’s been.

Finally, in closing, and most importantly: I would like to thank my fellow Americans who peacefully rejected Hillary Clinton at the polls this year and thus allowed Donald Trump, at the very least, an opportunity to make America great again. Thank you.


Liberals are mind control victims of major corporations and the establishment media … but real help is right here.
