[WashingtonTimes] Uranium One Robert Mueller says he was able to pinpoint security company executive Erik Prince's precise location for several hours in January 2017 by matching his mobile phone signal to a cell site near Trump Tower in New York City.
The special counsel's report discloses the use of this investigative technique, by which police determine a suspect';s location via a cell phone GPS signal.
The Prince narrative is one instance in unredacted sections of the report in which Mr. Mueller's team explicitly disclosed cell phone tracking. It raises the question of whether the FBI applied the process to other victims investigative subjects a phone's GPS signal can disclose its exact location within a few feet. One of the first requests the FBI makes when confronting subjects is to ask for their electronic devices.
The fact Mr. Mueller could pinpoint Mr. Prince's exact whereabouts suggest he used GPS readouts, which prosecutors can subpoena from cellular service providers.
[Daily Caller] Carter Page said Sunday that his contacts with Stefan Halper, an alleged FBI informant, "intensified" in the month before the U.S. government obtained its first spy warrant against the former Trump campaign aide. Useful idiot and clandestine wanna-be at the graphic.
"My conversations with him intensified right, the month before my illegitimate FISA warrant, in September 2016, when all these defamatory articles were being placed by the DNC," Page said in an interview with Maria Bartiromo on "Fox Sunday Futures."
The FBI obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against Page on Oct. 21, 2016. The application for the FISA relied heavily on information from Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the anti-Trump dossier on behalf of the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign.
Page’s remarks raise the possibility that the FBI also used information from Halper, a former Cambridge professor, in its efforts to collect information for the FISA application. Halper, who served in three Republican administrations and was reportedly an FBI informant for two decades, had contact during the 2016 campaign with Page and two other Trump advisers, Sam Clovis and George Papadopoulos.

Halper and Page first met before a political event at Cambridge on July 10, 2016, three weeks before the FBI officially opened its investigation of the Trump campaign’s possible links to Russia.
Page has told The Daily Caller News Foundation that he and Halper spoke one-on-one at the event, which spanned several days. The FBI has yet to explain why an FBI informant met with Halper before the official opening of Crossfire Hurricane, the code name for the Trump-Russia probe.
Page and Halper met for the second time on Aug. 20, 2016, when Page visited the former professor at his farm in Virginia. They remained in contact through September 2017, the month that the fourth and final FISA warrant against Page expired. Emphasis added
[Red State] Obviously, much of the spying, the use of FBI informants to infiltrate the Trump campaign, took place on British soil. The incident that the FBI claims triggered them to open an counterintelligence investigation into candidate Donald Trump, a conversation between Australian diplomat Alexander Downer and Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos, took place in a London bar. Stefan Halper, a professor at Cambridge University, met with several Trump campaign junior advisors in London as well.
We also know that the day after Peter Strzok, who at the time led the FBI’s Counterespionage Division, opened the investigation into the Trump campaign, he hopped on a plane to London. We know from texts between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page he was accompanied by another, more senior FBI official as well. Testimony from other FBI officials have pointed to a London connection as well.
In the video below, political analyst Dick Morris discusses the role played by the British intelligence community in the hoax against candidate Trump and the reasons why the Brits were strongly hoping for a Hillary Clinton victory. Trump worried the British elite, Morris says. "He questioned the value of NATO, he said it might be obsolete. He openly endorsed Brexit which they strongly opposed...Then, when he started to say nice things about Putin, praising his leadership style and saying that he could do business with him, that set off alarm bells throughout London." According to Morris:
The highest levels of British intelligence had to be a part of or in the know about the Russian-Delusion-Collusion hoax. Not so sure other 5-Eye countries weren't involved too--at least as far as intelligence sharing re the plot.
The CIA cant operate in the US, or so the laws read. Operating in a friendly nation and feeding it to the FBI is plausible. The globalist Britts did not want to see Trump in power. So this is no surprise.

Skid, I don't know specifically about CIA contractors. However, when I was in the Naval Reserve Intelligence program, we got a briefing every year on the laws that governed intelligence gathering in the US on US citizens. We were not allowed to gather intelligence on our own. If we suspected that our neighbor was a Russian spy, we were to call the FBI, not track him ourselves.

Remember when the Director of GCHQ retired after only two years on 23 Jan 2017 ? (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/01/23/breaking-gchq-boss-quits-personal-reasons-just-two-years/)
It was curious then, pretty clear now!
[BREITBART] In its new crusade for veganism, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has rushed to the defense of oysters and other bivalves, insisting they should be respected and never eaten.
“Oysters are never vegan,” PETA announced in a short video presentation on Twitter Saturday. “Bivalves are animals that deserve our consideration and should never be eaten or used in any other way.”
In its attempt to tug at the heartstrings of possible sympathizers, PETA underscored the cruelty with which oysters are treated just to feed undeserving human beings.
“Their shells are torn open and their bodies are cut up,” the video proclaimed.
“Oysters can sense danger and hide inside their shells. They also play an important role in the ocean by feeding on bacteria and filtering water,” it stated.
...Gotta remember - Oberlin exists in a little bubble in southern Lorain County, OH. They are completely and utterly convinced of their moral and educational superiority and have NO idea what to do next, except double down.
And it gets better, friends - their insurance company is strongly hinting that they ain't gonna pay. Stay tuned...

Oberlin does exist in a little bubble. From the inside, Oberlin thinks it is the center of the universe. From the outside, they are seen as a bunch of academic elites and snobs who consider themselves societies betters. The jurors, most likely, are the larger other side of this mutual animus. Town vs. gown.
The punitive damages numbers need to be huge. The precedent set will echo in academic administrations nationwide Nothing is more sacred than endowments and tenure for any professors who endanger it will be meaningless.
their insurance company is strongly hinting that they ain't gonna pay.
The fine print in their ToA mentions
" That the insurer are a capitalist company in a laissez-faire economy and shall not be liable for triggered socialist sponsored fuck-ups costing the insured institution any amount in punitive damages to be payed..."
[DAILYCALLER] Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg suggested Friday that the Supreme Court is deeply divided over its most-watched cases, hinting that a series of 5-4 decisions are likely as the court approaches the end of its current term.
Ginsburg said to the Second Circuit Judicial Conference the court was unlikely to achieve consensus on several high-profile matters.
"Of the 43 argued cases resolved so far, only 11, or just over 25%, were decided by a vote of 5 to 4 or 5 to 3," Ginsburg said. "Given the number of most watched cases still unannounced, I cannot predict that the relatively low sharp divisions ratio will hold."
One case likely to produce such a split is the dispute over the Trump administration’s bid to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census form. A coalition of civil rights groups and Democratic state governments sued to stop the question’s inclusion, saying it will depress minority participation in the census. The administration says it needs granular citizenship data to improve enforcement of the Voting Rights Act (VRA), but the plaintiffs believe they have uncovered evidence of the government’s true partisan motive.
The census serves as the basis for apportioning seats in Congress among the states.
Ginsburg discussed the census dispute in connection with the 2018 travel ban decision, in which a 5-4 court said President Donald Trump ...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States... ’s entry sanctions were entitled to deference.
"Speculators about the outcome note that last year, in Trump v. Hawaii, the court upheld the so-called ’travel ban,’ in an opinion granting great deference to the executive," Ginsburg said. "Respondents in the census case have argued that a ruling in Secretary [Wilbur] Ross’s favor would stretch deference beyond the breaking point."
RJ, is that right? For a long time slaves couldn't vote but their numbers (well, 60% of them) were counted in determining the number of Representatives, and thus the Electoral College representation.
A coalition of civil rights groups and Democratic state governments sued to stop the question’s inclusion, saying it will depress minority participation in the census.
Not including the census question on citizensip seems like it would defeat the purpose of the census, that is counting the population. The census is also necessary to determine the numbers in the House and the number of Electors from each State and how Federal funds are to be allocated.
re #8: JohnQC, your last sentence explains exactly why Democrat-run states want the citizenship question banned. If the census doesn't count the non-citizens, their population is less, so they don't get as many representatives in the House, and they get less Federal money to spend.

...its more than that. If the preliminary numbers are available NLT October 2020, it will be 'interesting' when far more votes are cast the next month in a district/state than there are adult citizens.
[NYPOST] US Rep. Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez Dem represntative from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus. She is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details.. turned tail on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue to avoid a potential Republican challenger as they both marched in the National Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday, her political opponent said.
Talk-radio producer Rich Valdes told The Post that he tried to challenge the freshman Democratic congresswoman to a debate on the merits of capitalism versus socialism when he spotted her near West 47th Street.
But Ocasio-Cortez "cut her handshaking short, jerked her hand back and jetted to the other side of the street," Valdes said.
"She literally ran!" he said.
"I thought this was a good time to try and get a response but I honestly only saw the back of her head as she trotted across the street."
Valdes’ account was echoed by Guardian Angels founder and radio host Curtis Sliwa, who said the incident unfolded when Valdes approached the progressive firebrand ...firebrands are noted more for audio volume and the quantity of spittle generated than for any actual logic in their arguments... about 12:30 p.m.
"As soon as she saw him she did a pirouette ‐ a spin ‐ and she ran north on Fifth Avenue, ahead of her delegation, just to get away from Rich," he said.
"I heard Rich yelling after her, ’OK, AOC. You can run ‐ but you can’t hide!'"
Sliwa’s wife, lawyer Nancy Sliwa, also snapped photos that show Valdes walking several steps behind Ocasio-Cortez, then facing the camera with a look of exasperation.
On Thursday, Valdes told members of the Queens Village Republican Club that he would move from New Jersey to Ocasio-Cortez’ district, which covers parts of The Bronx and Queens, in an effort to unseat her.
Ocasio-Cortez’s front man, Corbin Trent, denied that she bravely ran away from Valdes.
"She kept walking! The parade moved! It’s a procession! Give me a break," he said.
Trent said that Ocasio-Cortez "doesn’t owe anybody a debate," and said of Valdes: "Tell him to run for office and she’ll debate him.
...What I would love to see is the Governor of Georgia sue Abrams for slander and libel, and say, "Here's your chance, lady - put up or shut up."

Why would anyone listen to a woman whose life experience is some meaningless local political office, the inability to comprehend basic tabulation of ballots and the management of a body mass that must generate a minor gravitation field?
The most fabulous time of the year...
'Tis Pridetide! Oh dear, rainbow beer?
You won't be confronting
Red, white, and blue bunting,
Goodwill or bipartisan cheer,
Nor any diversity here
While it's colorless, barren, and drear.
[DAILYCALLER] Attempting to distinguish himself in an overcrowded Democratic primary, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker came out with a plan that he claims will address housing affordability. He’s wrong — it will only make the problem worse.
Booker’s plan involves offering a tax credit to any American who pays more than 30 percent of their before-tax income in rent, the value of which would equal the difference between the fair-market rate for the area and the amount that the renter actually pays.
What is especially bizarre about Booker’s plan is that the solution to sky-high rent and housing rates is blissfully simple — build more housing!
Housing crises arise largely from a straightforward application of supply and demand concepts economists learned back in high school. When the demand outstrips the supply, and supply is constrained by artificial factors such as zoning and land-use regulations, prices will rise. Yet primary candidates in the Democratic field such as Booker, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and California Sen. Kamala Harris have all felt the need to invent Rube Goldberg-esque plans to try to tackle housing affordability differently.
[DAILYCALLER] House Speaker Nancy San Fran Nan Pelosi Congresswoman-for-Life from the San Francisco Bay Area, born into a family of professional politicians. On-again-off-again Speaker of the House, It's not her fault when they lose, but it is when they win. Noted for her heavily botoxed grimace and occasional senior... uhhh... momentss... derided President Donald Trump ...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States... Saturday for leveraging potential tariffs to convince Mexico to strengthen its border as more "threats and temper tantrums."
Pelosi, who has been engaging the president in a war of words all week, suggested there was little diplomatic gain in the brief stand-off or the deal itself, the Washington Examiner reported.
I think a turning point of sorts has been reached. The dems obviously can't stop Trump from remaking the immigration debate. You won't see any coverage of it in the LIE / MSM, but it's pretty clear polls are telling the donks that hard-line open borders stance is not winning over voters.
