style='float:right;border:1px solid midnightblue;padding:3px;margin:3px;' />[Hot Air] Can you imagine what the presidential sh*tposting about Bill Barr will be like if the Horowitz report turns out to be a dud? Trump is counting on it to deliver his vindication in the Russiagate mess. Barr was the Roy Cohn figure POTUS had longed for after being massively disappointed by Jeff Sessions, the AG who would finally prove that Trump’s worst fears were right all along. The bogus Steele dossier inspired the witch hunt; the renegade deep-staters at the FBI spied on the campaign; Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, and God knows who else were all rancid with bias against Trump because they resented a right-wing anti-interventionist president who wasn’t chummy with Washington’s entrenched bureaucracy.

According to last week’s Times story about the IG’s draft report and now this new one, none of it is true. Per this afternoon’s reporting, inspector general Michael Horowitz is prepared to conclude that the FBI didn’t spy on the campaign.

...although it did use at least two informants to make contact with Trump campaign staff. Huh?

Until now, the debate over whether the FBI had "spied on the campaign" focused on the spying part. Is it "spying" when the police use an informant as part of a legitimate counterintelligence or criminal investigation? (Last week’s reporting claimed that the draft report will find that the Russiagate probe did have a sufficient factual and legal basis when it was opened.) But now we’re going to end up debating the "on the campaign" part too. Was the FBI spying on "the campaign" if it had informants in touch with advisors to the campaign but not attempting to join the campaign themselves? Remember that both Stefan Halper and a mystery woman were each working for the feds when they made contact with George Papadopoulos.

style='float:right;border:1px solid midnightblue;padding:3px;margin:3px;' />[NY Post] A mid-air collision between two helicopters has killed 13 French soldiers fighting against Islamic extremists in Mali, French President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday.

Macron expressed "deep sadness" at the news of the Monday evening crash, which took place during a combat operation.

In a written statement, he expressed his support for the French military and stressed the "courage of the French soldiers" fighting the persistent Islamic threat in the Sahel region.

The statement provided no further details about the accident.

French defense minister Florence Parly said an investigation has been opened to determine the exact circumstances of the accident.

The operation in West and Central Africa involves 4,500 personnel and is France's largest overseas military mission.

A new surge in extremist attacks in Mali has killed well over 100 local troops in the past two months, with the Islamic State group often claiming responsibility.

The United States has said West Africa's Sahel region is an emerging front in the fight against IS and other extremist groups, including those linked to al-Qaida.

Philippine troops on Monday rescued a British man and his Filipino wife who were abducted from a southern beach resort last month by gunmen linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) and taken to their jungle hideouts.

Regional military commander Lt Gen Cirilito Sobejana said troops caught up with the Abu Sayyaf captors of Allan Hyrons and his wife, Wilma, in the mountainous hinterlands of Parang town in Sulu province and rescued the couple after a fight.

"There was a running gun battle," Sobejana said. "They left the two behind because they could not drag them any more. They scampered in different directions but our troops are in pursuit."

The Hyrons were not hurt in the 10-minute exchange of fire, the military said, adding that no ransom had been paid to the group.

Senators demand details of Obama-Ukraine meetings
2019-11-23
[WND] Two Republican senators are asking the national archivist to provide copies of records of meetings in 2016 between the Obama administration, the Ukrainian government and Democratic National Committee officials.

U.S. Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, addressed the letter to Archivist David Ferriero.

In January 2016, Ukrainian governmental officials and corruption investigators met with members of Obama's National Security Council, the FBI, the DOJ and others, including DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa, who has been suspected of working with Ukrainian officials to undermine the Trump campaign, the senators say.

"According to Andrii Telizhenko, a political officer in the Ukraine Embassy in Washington, D.C., who participated in a January 2016 meeting, 'U.S. officials volunteered ... that they had an interest in reviving a closed investigation into payments to U.S. figures from Ukraine's Russia-backed Party of Regions,' which refers to the investigation that involved Paul Manafort," the senators write.

style='float:right;border:1px solid midnightblue;padding:3px;margin:3px;' />[Reddit] When The Quartering got punched at that convention, Honeycutt made a post on social media saying that Nazis should be punched, as should Hambly, and as should "bad people" in general.

A few days ago, an ex of Honeycutt's came forward to accuse him of abuse. Some quotes from her blog post:
He thought I liked rough sex and without my consent he would do things like pull my hair or lightly slap my face. At my first Gen Con we were sharing a room, I was being sassy about something and he slapped me so hard his wedding ring cut my cheek. I didn’t know what had happened or why, so I started crying. He hugged me and told me he was sorry and that he didn’t mean to hit me that hard and was only trying to be playful.

After that I told him I didn’t want to have sex for the rest of that trip because I didn’t feel well. He made me feel guilty because it was rare that we were alone together. He touched me while I was asleep that night. I woke up and told him to stop.

We stayed off site in an AirBnB. This is significant because this is the first time that he covered my face with a pillow until I almost passed out after he touched me in my sleep. When confronted he said he didn’t remember but that he was sorry.

After I got out of the shower, without warning, he starting having sex with me. This time was the most painful and I bled after the fact. I thought he just thought it was something I was into.

I am writing this for a few reasons. First and foremost JR is a predator from my own perspective. I know that he has been getting women drunk and trying to sleep with them and I want people to be aware. I personally know of 4 other women who he has hurt through manipulation. He uses his position in the industry as a tool to lure women towards him.

FBI Never Saw CrowdStrike Unredacted or Final Report on Alleged Russian Hacking Because None was Produced
2019-11-20
From June 17, 2019
[ConsortiumNews] The FBI relied on CrowdStrike’s "conclusion" to blame Russia for hacking DNC servers, though the private firm never produced a final report and the FBI never asked them to, as Ray McGovern explains.

CrowdStrike, the controversial cybersecurity firm that the Democratic National Committee chose over the FBI in 2016 to examine its compromised computer servers, never produced an un-redacted or final forensic report for the government because the FBI never required it to, the Justice Department has admitted.

The revelation came in a court filing by the government in the pre-trial phase of Roger Stone, a long-time Republican operative who had an unofficial role in the campaign of candidate Donald Trump. Stone has been charged with misleading Congress, obstructing justice and intimidating a witness.

The filing was in response to a motion by Stone’s lawyers asking for "unredacted reports" from CrowdStrike in an effort to get the government to prove that Russia hacked the DNC server. "The government ... does not possess the information the defandant seeks," the filing says.

In his motion, Stone’s lawyers said he had only been given three redacted drafts. In a startling footnote in the government’s response, the DOJ admits the drafts are all that exist. "Although the reports produced to the defendant are marked ’draft,’ counsel for the DNC and DCCC informed the government that they are the last version of the report produced," the footnote says.

In other words CrowdStrike, upon which the FBI relied to conclude that Russia hacked the DNC, never completed a final report and only turned over three redacted drafts to the government.

These drafts were "voluntarily" given to the FBI by DNC lawyers, the filing says. "No redacted information concerned the attribution of the attack to Russian actors," the filing quotes DNC lawyers as saying.

In Stone’s motion his lawyers argued: "If the Russian state did not hack the DNC, DCCC, or [Clinton campaign chairman John] Podesta’s servers, then Roger Stone was prosecuted for obstructing a congressional investigation into an unproven Russian state hacking conspiracy ... The issue of whether or not the DNC was hacked is central to the Defendant’s defense."

The DOJ responded: "The government does not need to prove at the defendant’s trial that the Russians hacked the DNC in order to prove the defendant made false statements, tampered with a witness, and obstructed justice into a congressional investigation regarding election interference."
Much, much more at the link.

Check out the court filing from the Stone case.

People ask me why Trump sent Giuliani to investigate Burisma instead of the FBI. I tell them Trump cannot trust the FBI. They look at me like my head is on backwards because they get all their news from MSM.

The Boggling Retardery of the Impeachment Tantrum
2019-11-17
Warning - very intemperate language
[MichaelZWilliamson] The current attempt at impeaching President Trump revolves around a claim of a "quid pro quo" of government aid to the Ukraine, in exchange for them pursuing legitimate law enforcement investigations of your typical Demorrhoid corruption.

First, it is the JOB of the Executive Branch, via State and Commerce Departments among others, to quid pro quo other governments. THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO DO. "You want X? We want Y. Deal?"

Literally. Their fucking. Job.

In 1948, President Truman's administration approved the creation of ARAMCO for the purpose of acquiring oil from Saudi Arabia, while having a means of putting political pressure on them. That's in the actual statements in the authorization.

So the whole trial is a farce to start with. There are legitimate complaints about some of Trump's actions. This isn't one of them. Of course, most that are questionable were exactly what the Demorrhoids wanted, so they're silent on that.

Second, even worse than ascribing the SNL quote of "I can see Russia from my house" that Sarah Palin never actually said, but is now considered "Fake, but accurate," they're basing this on what some Demorrhoid shithead in Congress paraphrased from hearsay from some source he isn't really sure about.

But, even if we assume this might actually result in any credible, pursuable charges from the Fascist Wing of the DNC, what then? First they have to prove the charge, which is non-existent.

Then, it goes to the Republican controlled Senate for follow up. I'm sure they'll give it all the attention it deserves.

But even if they do something: you may remember when this happened to Bill Clinton over actual perjury charges. The result was "Censure." IOW, a letter saying, "We find you to be quite naughty." Nothing substantive.

But even if they actually remove the sitting president from their own party (I dunno, maybe they think it'll be useful later for removing a Demorrhoid for the easily provable charge of being anti-American), it means, by the time they get to that, Trump is gone for the last 5 months of his term.

Which would mean PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE. Now, that asshole was my governor. If you do not like Trump, you will not like Pence even more, who demonstrably IS a Christo-fascist, anti-choice, anti-gay crusader. Seriously? Are you fucking retarded? Apparently.

AND, that still doesn't stop Trump from campaigning to run for office again, and still winning because his followers and most of the mainstream are pretty fucking sick of "liberal" fascist cocksuckers trying to subvert the legal processes for some strange sexual worship and obsession with Trump. Hell, I might even vote for him to just to watch four more years of complete meltdown.

But worst case, it just means PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE. Jesus tittyfucking Christ in a pink tutu on a pogo stick, are you...well, yes, obviously you ARE that fucking stupid.

What we really need is to quid pro quo some foreign government's intelligence service into assassinating the entire DNC membership. But Trump is too soft and liberal for that.

The Brennan Dossier: All About a Prime Mover of Russiagate
2019-11-15
"Schumer warned Trump: "Intel officials 'have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you" Schumer seems to be correct in his assessment according to this article.

The article begins to get at the nexus of the conspiracy to take down duly-elected POTUS Trump. However, there seems to be more to it than just the intelligence community. The more is: 1. foreign players involved, 2. the main-stream media aiding and abetting the conspiracy, 3. Dems and DNC, 4. Department of State, 5. Justice Department and FBI, Intelligence community. The swamp is large.

[RealClearInvestigations] In the waning days of the Obama administration, the U.S. intelligence community produced a report saying Russian President Vladimir Putin had tried to swing the 2016 election to Donald Trump.

Wayne Allyn Root - The Real Ukraine Scandal Leads to the Clinton Foundation
2019-11-13
[WeAreSC - Oct 2019 article] President Trump has the highest approval rating among Republicans in history. 95%. No one is impeaching this president.

Now, let’s discuss why this is happening.

Ukraine donated more money to the Clinton Foundation than China, UK, France, Germany or Saudi Arabia.

Why would all this cash be coming from tiny Ukraine?

Because tiny Ukraine was the recipient of billions of dollars in US-taxpayer funded aid. It’s a million miles away. No one was watching. Leading Democrats extorted kickbacks on all this US foreign aid.

Democrats under Obama got rich. Democrats treated Ukraine as their personal fiefdom. This is how politics works in the DC Swamp.

I’ve been writing about the role of the Clinton Foundation for years. It’s my opinion the central role of the Clinton Foundation is to extort and launder bribes from foreign countries.

But if I’m wrong, why is this US charity based offshore? A charity owes no taxes on donations. So why not base your bank accounts in the USA?

Because they don’t have to report to the US government what comes in, or where the money is going. Simple: Offshore = no reporting. The Clinton Foundation could not afford to have anyone look at their books.

In my opinion, Hillary was running her version of the Gambino Crime Family slush fund. Jimmy Hoffa and the teamsters had nothing on the Clintons. And everyone in the Democrat Party and Deep State got a piece, to insure no one would rat.

Ukraine is the key to this massive Democrat scandal. But Biden was just the tip of the iceberg. This is all about the Obama and Clinton Crime Families.

I believe Trump’s phone call to Ukraine’s president set off alarm bells. Trump is digging in places no one has ever dared dig before. He could expose the extortion and bribery racket of leading Democrats. That’s why the Deep State decided to come after Trump. He’s messing with their livelihood. He’s upsetting their apple cart. If he’s allowed to investigate, the jig is up.

I believe Obama named Biden his sacrificial lamb, just in case Hillary didn’t win and all of this could not be covered up. Biden is a crook. But he’s a careless fool too. It was easy to make him the fall guy.

Trust me. This is Obama and Hillary’s scandal. Biden is just an order taker.

So, let me make this clear to Democrats: We have your number. Justice will be served. And you’re never, ever impeaching our hero, President Trump.

This isn’t Ukraine. We don’t punish the investigator in the United States of America. We punish the criminals.

Enter Joe Biden. Few in the Democrat Party wanted an old white guy as the nominee anyway. Especially Obama. In order to frame Trump, Biden had to be sacrificed. In my opinion, this second-hand "whistleblower" was meant to kill two birds with one stone: Trump and Biden. Biden is the Democrats’ fall guy.

But the real story is about the Clintons, the Clinton Foundation, Obama, Pelosi, Kerry and many other powerful Democrats. Their fingerprints are all over Ukraine. Forget about the high-paying jobs for their family members. This goes much deeper. touched the third rail of Democrat/Deep State/DC Swamp politics. He asked Ukraine’s President to investigate massive Democrat corruption and theft of taxpayer money.

Suddenly alarm bells went off at the DNC. I believe Trump is about to expose the biggest scandal in US political history. Trump is about to put powerful people in prison. Trump is about to destroy the Democrat Party and expose the Deep State. Trump is not getting thrown out of office. Not with his remarkable record of economic success for the average American worker. Not going to happen.

63 million Trump voters will insure that never happens. We have your back, Mr. President.

-Land of the Free
The Radicalizing of Eric Ciaramella
2019-11-10
[Spectator] While the lawyers representing Eric Ciaramella, the alleged "whistleblower" in the Trump impeachment fiasco, describe him as having spent his entire career in "apolitical civil servant positions," the truth is that Eric Ciaramella has been involved in radical political behavior throughout his life - including his years at Yale.
WTF has Obama wrought in America ?

In fact, long before he was digging up dirt with the DNC's Alexandra Chalupa about President Trump's mythical collusion with Russia, Ciaramella was involved in leading a protest over what he believed was the poor treatment of Bassam Frangieh, a radical professor of Arabic Studies at Yale. On April 15, 2005, then first-year Yale student Ciaramella dressed in all white to lead a contingent of ten similarly dressed first-year Yale Arabic students to the offices of the Provost and the President of the university to demand that the university provide an incentive to encourage Frangieh to stay at Yale. The students were unhappy because Frangieh had decided earlier in the school year to accept a tenure-track position at the University of Delaware.

Ciaramella helped to organize a campus-wide letter-writing campaign on behalf of Frangieh which "identified flaws in the administration's policies regarding language instructors at Yale." According to the Yale Daily News, Bassam Frangieh was looking for an opportunity to teach more of the classes that he would like to teach, according to one of the protesters: "His specialty is Arabic language and literature, and he wanted to teach some classes on style and poetry." A week after the protest, Yale’s administration announced that they had "upped the ante with an offer competitive enough to keep one of its star language instructors from leaving Yale.

It is likely that Bassam Frangieh wanted to use literature to be able to shape Yale's undergraduates' views on what he called the "heroic Arabic poet-martyrs" battling against the unjust occupation in Palestine. In 2000, Frangieh published a chapter romanticizing terrorism in a book entitled Tradition, Modernity, and Postmodernity in Arabic Literature. Ciaramella's favorite Yale Arabic professor praised the heroism of Abd al Rahim Mahmud, the "first Arab poet-martyr."
A paleostinian whatsit beloved of intifaders over the world
Mahmud, who is often used to inspire terrorism and suicide bombings among Arab youth, was described by Frangieh as "carrying his soul in the palm of his hand," as he "threw himself into the cavern of death." Romanticizing his terrorism, Frangieh recalls Mahmud's "premature death at age 35, fighting a battle in an attempt to keep Palestine free from foreign occupation, [which]brought dignity to the hearts of his people. Through his death he eliminated the gap between words and action... he shall remain a symbol of heroism and pride for his people."
Do read the entire thing by Anne Hendershott at the Spectator. I tell you, my mind was blown.
