Just In: Trump Family Announces Tragic News

Just hours ago Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from Donald Trump Jr.

The couple issued a joint statement:

“After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways.  We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”

The president’s daughter-in-law made the filing.  She will not contest custody of their five kids.

The New York Post’s Page Six first revealed Vanessa and Don Jr., both 40, were having marital problems yesterday:

“Donald Trump Jr. and his wife, Vanessa Trump, are struggling through marital problems and friends say they are heading for divorce, multiple sources have exclusively confirmed to Page Six.

“Vanessa and the eldest son of President Donald Trump married in November 2005 and have five children. But while they have not legally separated, friends say they have been living separate lives.”

It appears that the incessant witch-hunt being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller is taking its toll on the president’s family.

The Post said that a friend had told them that “Vanessa is by nature is a very low-key person, and she is uncomfortable with the attention her family is getting now that the Trumps are on the world stage. She is also worried for her kids, particularly after she received the threatening letter containing the white powder.”

In February, Vanessa had been taken to a hospital after she opened a letter addressed to Don Jr., that had been mailed to their Manhattan home.  The envelope contained white powder and a letter that read:

“You are an awful person.  This is why people hate you. You are getting what you deserve. So shut the f— up.” 

While the powder proved to be nothing more than a prop her friend was quoted as saying:  “It was terrifying for Vanessa, who is naturally worried for the safety of her children.”

Bombshell: Obama Admin Ordered FBI To Remove 500,000 Fugitives From No Gun Buy List

Nothing better than dead Americans to convince voters to surrender their Second Amendment rights.  And, no one better to count on to kill those Americans than fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants.

Yesterday, under questioning from California’s gun confiscation Senator Dianne Feinstein, acting FBI deputy director David Bowdich testified that former President Barack Obama ordered the FBI to delete over 500,000 fugitives from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Senator Feinstein: “It’s my understanding that under federal law fugitives cannot legally purchase or possess guns We’ve heard from local law enforcement that the Justice Department has issued a memo that forced the FBI NICS background check database to drop more than 500,000 names of fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants because it was uncertain whether those fugitives had fled across state lines.

“Mr. Bowdich, can you describe why this determination was made by the Justice Department?”

Deputy Director Bowdich: “That was a decision that was made under the previous administration.  It was the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel that reviewed the law and believed that it needed to be interpreted so that if someone was a fugitive in a state, there had to be indications that they had crossed state lines.”

So, let’s see. 

  • Obama ordered his Department of Justice to give “military style assault “ weapons to Mexican drug smugglers
  • Obama ordered 500,000 of the violators most probable to use a weapon in the commission of a crime to become invisible to NICS

And, Obama’s holdovers – Rosenstein and Mueller – are now leading the witch-hunt against the man who stands between Obama’s gun confiscation plan and our Second Amendment rights, President Trump.

No wonder Obama ignored the law to defeat Donald Trump and then, after Trump won, his tool James Comey continued undermining the president.  He knew that an honest president, one who had no interest in preserving the phony left-right paradigm, would expose everything he and Hillary had planned.

Obama was the poster boy for why the Framers gave us the Second Amendment.  That should stand as a warning to every patriot.

They want my guns?  They’ll have to take them from my cold, dead, hands.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Takes Out A Simple Slip of Paper & Infuriates Every Reporter in the Room

Prior to yesterday’s press conference, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a letter that a 10-year-old girl wrote to President Trump. The little girl’s name is Paris Stupar, and she has a lot of respect for our President. Although Trump supporters loved the letter, anti-Trump reporters were extremely unhappy.

Paris’s letter read that she and her sister have been “stationed” all over the world because their father is enlisted in the Army. She asked President Trump if they could come to the White House Easter Egg Roll. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had a great response. Reporters attending the press conference were really angry.

Sarah read the young girl’s letter out loud for all of the reporters to hear:

“My name is Paris, and my sister’s name is London.  My sister and I have been stationed all over the world and it has really been a great adventure.  We’re currently stationed at fort Campbell in Kentucky.  We are so patriotic in everything we do.  We’re on Instagram at @ArmyRoyals if you’d like to check us out.  

Over the Summer I used my allowance and raised enough money to get 43 backpacks full of school supplies for military children in need.  We were wondering if you could help us out.  We so badly want to attend the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, April 2nd.

She goes on to write that the President is doing a great job, and if he would invite them to the Easter Egg Roll she would ‘do my happy dance all over the house.’

Sarah Huckabee Sander’s response was amazing. Not only did she invite Paris as well as her sister to the White House Egg Roll, but she also invited the children of every single White House Reporter, no matter their political affiliation.

She stated, “Well Paris, you can get your dancing shoes out. The President and First Lady would love for you, your sister, and your parents to be their guests at this year’s Easter Egg Roll… This year marks the 140th annual easter egg roll, and with you guys in attendance we know it will be an extra special one. To make it even more special, i’d also like to extend an invitation to the children of the entire white house press corps to attend as our guests as well… and on that happy note, I will take your questions.”

The White House reporters were not having it, and they almost took offense to Sarah’s invite. Take a look at the video below:

Sheriff Israel Refuses To Show Up for Senate Hearing, Immediately Gets What’s Coming To Him

A lot of blame should be placed on Sheriff Israel’s office in the case of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting that took place last month. Sheriff Israel deserves a fair amount of that blame. The sheriff’s office took in roughly 50 calls involving Nikolas Cruz even though he claimed that the number was closer to 20.

The Independent reported that the Broward County Sheriff’s Office responded to around 50 calls involving Nikolas Cruz or his brother within the 10 years prior to him opening fire in his former high school.

Call logs were taken from the sheriff’s office. These logs prove that authorities had 45 calls about Cruz and his brother between 2008 and 2017. CNN reported that the reasons for these calls stretch from “domestic disturbance” to “missing person” to “animal abuse.”

The amount of calls is much higher than the 20 or so that Israel claimed that they received. So Israel is either incompetent or a liar… or both. Sheriff Israel’s officers failed to respond while at the scene.

It was reported that Chuck Grassley isn’t allowing Scott Israel to get off scotch free. The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman excoriated Israel because he failed to show up to a Wednesday hearing on Capitol Hill. The meeting was about the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He was accused of having “let the American people down.”

The Iowa Republican stated in his opening remarks, “The committee also invited Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel to testify.”

Grassley compared Israel’s failure to show up with his frequent media appearances. He was at a pro-gun town hall hosted by liberal news network CNN days after the shooting at the Parkland, Florida high school.

“I’ve seen that sheriff all over television discussing the shooting, so it’s disappointing that he has refused to speak to the country through his testimony before this committee.”

Israel simply shouldn’t be employed by any kind of law enforcement agency based on his actions on February 14.

National Review reported:

The numbers tell the story: 23 sheriff’s calls involving the Parkland shooter; 18 sheriff’s calls involving the shooter’s behavior directly (some of the others were principally about his brother); four sheriff’s deputies, armed and trained, cowering outside the high school while the killer within carried out his massacre; 17 dead.

The failure of the Broward County sheriff’s department in this matter has been comprehensive — before and during the incident, obviously, and after it, too, with the continued sanctimonious blame-dodging of the sheriff. The sheriff’s department (and other law-enforcement agencies from Palm Beach County to the FBI) had every reason to believe not only that the killer was a danger to others but that he was specifically planning a school massacre. People who knew him called in with that specific worry, and the killer boasted online of his plan to become a school shooter. Those boasts were forwarded to the FBI, which did precisely nothing in response. The killer himself called police to tell them he had been having trouble after the death of his mother.

Report: Freshly Fired McCabe Promised to ‘Take People Down With Him’

All those people who doubted President Trump and how far he was willing to go to clean up the swamp are eating crow today.  After yesterday’s epic firing of would be coup d’etat leader McCabe even Jeff Sessions is back in the good graces of most patriots.  Something big is coming and it just may be that McCabe and his rage are the catalysts that sets off the ‘boom’ …
The Gateway Pundit Reports:  Fox News reporter Adam Housley reported on Twitter tonight about the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, stating his sources were telling him that in the past few days McCabe threatened to “take people down with him” if he was fired. Housley also reported that the Inspector General-Office of Professional Responsibility report had uncovered “tons of stuff” on McCabe unrelated to the Trump investigation and that McCabe’s firing was a morale boost to FBI agents.

Adam Housley, screen image via the Cable Game.

Housley posted many tweets and replies about McCabe’s firing. A selection of those tweets is included in this report.

Friday at 9:03 a.m. PDT by the Los Angeles based Housley, “A bunch of FBI agents I know are watching how McCabe is handled very closely. For them this isn’t political, it was about how things were handled internally.”

7:13 p.m. PDT minutes after news broke of McCabe’s firing, “From day 1 I have said the McCabe issue was not about politics for agents. This began before Trump was elected and there are many who were watching how the Bureau handled him. Tonight…a message has been sent according to the agents I am speaking with. McCabe is our.”

7:23 p.m. PDT: “McCabe blaming Nunes and the dossier is beyond incorrect. The internal investigation took all that into consideration and much more. Ask the agents in the bureau, not the politicians and media outside of it. That’s what I did. They had a ton of stuff on him…a ton.”

7:31 p.m. PDT: “McCabe had some friends as part of his group. Some have left…a few are still around. FYI”

7:32 p.m. PDT: “Again…this isn’t about politics..this was an internal thing that became political. It started before Trump. Both sides are tho going to make this political. I mean…that’s what they do.”

7:56 p.m. PDT: “And there is much more. But leave it to some of my colleagues in the media to immediately make it political. RT @debz526: @calvindanielsll @Put2sleep0066 @adamhousley The totality of what McCabe has done hasn’t been disclosed to the public.”

8:25 p.m. PDT: “could care less about Trump and Sessions. According to my sources, who are beyond question, there is much more. This isn’t about Trump. This was about control and business as usual for a few”

8:30 p.m. PDT: “Wray and McCabe’s meeting did not go well and it was McCabe who challenged the Director. McCabe stepped down because of this and tried to ride it out until retirement. Truth internally came out before that happened. This has nothing to do with Trumps tweets or Nunes memo”

8:31 p.m. PDT: “I am told yesterday McCabe felt the heat and went to try and save his last two days and even told some he would take people down with him if he as fired. So…let’s see what comes of this. I know this…a ton of agents…a ton…were watching this very closely.”

8:34 p.m. PDT: “This was about power by a group within the FBI. A clique. I see Republicans already making this political and tying it in a much different way than it was. Dems tying it to Trump…both would be wrong.”

8:42 p.m. PDT: “This decision will encourage agents to trust coming forward. Others who had during the clique’s time in charge got buried and mistreated and it kept agents from coming forward. Again..this began before Trump. It was about control.”

8:47 p.m. PDT: “Happy RT @HappyGoldenRule: @adamhousley Are they mad or happy about the firing?”

8:49 p.m.PDT: “As a reporter I will repeat this once more. I could care less if this helps Trump, or helps politically in any way. I just know a ton of men and women in the FBI who do damn good work and they were watching how this clique would be handled. McCabe has many who do not support”

8:50 p.m. PDT: “I am saying agents have told me of a small group of people we’re all about control and they were even tough on their own internally. It had agents not wanting to talk and it started before Trump.”

8:51 p.m. PDT: “I am saying this started before that. What they did and what it became will be revealed in the full report.” READ MORE @ The Gateway Pundit

TRAITOR: Obama Demanded to Forfeit Nobel Peace Prize

Former President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize back in 2009, and there are still tons of people who disagree with the decision. Following a damning report which involved the Obama administration and Hezbollah, Israeli politicians are demanding that Obama forfeit his prize.

The Daily Caller reported that politicians in Israel have turned completely against former President Barack Obama after the report came out. Israel is a country that is directly affected by the terror of Hezbollah. Politicians are so angry that they are even calling for Obama to forfeit his Nobel Peace Prize. 

The Jerusalem Post reported that many Israeli politicians responded, and provided some of their responses.

Yeah Atid chairman Yair Lapid stated, “Obama must return his Nobel Peace Prize. Israel warned repeatedly that there can be no connection between the nuclear deal and anti-terror activity, certainly against Hezbollah…We also warned of this specifically, because of the proven link between Hezbollah and Iran.”

Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hangebi responded, “Up until the Obama Administration, every American President fought terrorism uncompromisingly…I am convinced that the Trump Administration will not turn from that tradition and the outrageous and mistaken policy that was revealed this week will not be repeated.”

Former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren made it clear that he was against Obama’s policies when he stated, “It was clear that the government was willing to do anything to reach an agreement, including ignoring Iranian terror that took the lives of hundreds of Americans and Israelis and hundreds of thousands of Syrians. This exposée and others that may be published in the future must strengthen our resolve…[to] change this dangerous agreement.”

Then there was Communications Minister Ayoob Kara who not only took a poke at Obama, but made it clear that Trump was much better suited to aid Israel. Kara questioned, “Does anyone still doubt why Obama was bad for Israel and how Trump is better for us?”

Fox News reported on the Hezbollah deal. They explained that the Obama administration allowed Hezbollah a “get out of jail free card” when it came to their drug trafficking and money laundering ring inside the United States. They did this in order to make sure that the Iran nuclear deal would be pushed through.

the Drug Enforcement Administration started Project Cassandra, which was a detailed campaign used to target the Lebanese militant group. The issue was that there were many roadblocks holding the entire campaign back. Obama administration officials aided in allowing Hezbollah to turn into a major global security threat.

David Asher was a Defense Department illicit finance analyst in 2008 who helped start Project Cassandra. Asher told Politico, “This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision. They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.”

The leaders of the project were working out of a DEA’s Counter facility located in Virginia. They looked for some kind of okay to follow through with investigations, prosecutions, arrests, and financial sanctions, however the Department of Justice and the Treasury delayed these requests. They are also known to have outright rejected requests.

Politico also reported:

Over the next eight years, agents working out of a top-secret DEA facility in Chantilly, Virginia, used wiretaps, undercover operations and informants to map Hezbollah’s illicit networks, with the help of 30 U.S. and foreign security agencies.

They followed cocaine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East, and others through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States. They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.

They were to follow shipments of cocaine and track trails of dirty money. They also traced what they thought to be the innermost circle of the terrorist group as well as the group’s state sponsors in Iran. However, Project Cassandra seemed to be reaching too high. Obama administration officials provided roadblock after roadblock. Dozens of participants spoke for the first time about what went on during their time working on Project Cassandra claiming that the Obama administration was purposefully blocking them from doing their jobs.

Barack Obama was the fourth United States president to win the Nobel Peace Prize, but did he truly deserve it? It’s time that we take a deeper look into the things Obama did during his time in office.

Nine Major Problems with James Comey’s Involvement with the Trump Hoax Dossier

NEW YORK — James Comey took to Twitter on Saturday to respond to an earlier tweet by President Donald Trump about the Russia probe, with the former FBI director exclaiming that the “American people will hear my story very soon.”

“And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not,” Comey added.

Comey was responding to Trump’s charge that the ex-FBI chief was aware of illicit activity at the FBI regarding the probe into unsubstantiated claims of Russian collusion.

Below, in no particular order, are nine major problems with Comey’s actions in the Russia probe.  This while he tweets about determining who is “honorable.”

1 – Comey signed FISA applications that cited the largely discredited anti-Trump dossier as purported evidence to conduct surveillance on Carter Page, who briefly served as a volunteer campaign foreign policy adviser.

The previously released four-page House Intelligence Committee memo alleging abuse of surveillance authority documents that on October 21, 2016, the FBI and Justice Department sought and received the FISA order against Page, and that the agencies sought the renewal of the order every 90 days in accordance with court requirements. Renewals require separate finding of probable cause each time, the memo relates.

According to the memo, Comey “signed three FISA applications in question on behalf of the FBI, and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe signed one.” The memo relates that the FBI utilized the anti-Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele as evidence against Page in order to obtain the FISA warrant.

The controversial Fusion GPS hired Steele’s company, Orbis Business Intelligence, to do the anti-Trump work that resulted in the compilation of the infamous dossier.  Fusion GPS was paid for its anti-Trump work by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee via the Perkins Coie law firm.

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee last month released a purported rebuttal to the House GOP memo, but the Democrats’ document actually confirmed that Comey’s FISA applications did indeed cite the Steele dossier.

2 – Comey reportedly did not tell the FISA court that Steele’s dossier was funded by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

After reviewing all FISA warrant applications on the matter, the Republican memo confirms the FISA court was never informed that Steele was working on behalf of Perkin Coie, the DNC or Hillary’s campaign.  Still, Comey cited Steele’s work to sign FISA applications to monitor an American citizen.

In an attempt to rebut the Republican argument that the FISA court was not informed about the dossier’s specific origins, the Democratic memo quotes from an explanation to the court that Steele:

was approached by an identified U.S. person who indicated to Source #1 [Steele] that a U.S.-based law firm had hired the identified U.S. person to conduct research regarding Candidate #1’s ties to Russia. (The identified U.S. person and Source #1 have a long-standing business relationship.) The identified U.S. person hired Source #1 to conduct this research. The identified U.S. person never advised Source #1 as to the motivation behind the research into candidate #1’s ties to Russia.  The FBI speculates that the identified U.S. person was likely looking for information that could be used to discredit Candidate #1’s campaign.

Contrary to the rebuttal’s characterization, this paragraph is a far cry from informing the court that the dossier utilized in the FISA warrant was paid for by Trump’s primary political opponents, namely Clinton and the DNC.  Also, the general mention of  “a U.S.-based law firm” does not identify to the FISA court the actual firm, Perkins Coie, which is known for its representation of Clinton and the DNC. Further, informing the FISA court about “an identified U.S. person” who hired Steele fails to actually identify that U.S. person as Glenn Simpson, founder of the controversial Fusion GPS.

The Democrats claim that the above-referenced paragraph proves the Obama-era agencies informed the FISA court about the “political” origins of the dossier. However, the Republican memo specifically and apparently correctly charged that “neither the initial application in October 2016, nor any of the renewals, disclose or reference the role of the DNC, Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts.”  The Democratic memo fails to dispute that charge.

3 – Comey’s FISA application reportedly did not inform the court that Steele had been hired by Fusion GPS.

The GOP memo relates that the initial FISA application notes Steele worked for a “named U.S. person,” but does not name Fusion GPS or its founder Simpson. The Democrats’ rebuttal contains no evidence that Comey informed the FISA court about the involvement of Fusion GPS. Breitbart News has released a series of articles documenting credibility issues faced by Fusion GPS and its leadership.

4 – Comey’s FISA application is accused of incorrectly assessing that Steele did not provide information to Yahoo News.

A Yahoo News article about an alleged trip by Page to Moscow was cited as purported evidence against Page in the FISA warrant, according to the House GOP memo. However, the memo relates that the Page FISA application “incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News.”

The memo continued:

Steele has admitted in British court filings that he met with Yahoo News and several other outlets in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington DC in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed.

5 – Comey cited the dossier in the FISA applications to monitor Page even though he personally called the information contained in Steele’s dossier “salacious and unverified” months later.

Comey first filed the FISA application citing the dossier on October 21, 2016, according to the GOP memo. Yet during his June 8, 2017 prepared remarks before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Comey referred to the anti-Trump dossier as containing “salacious and unverified” material.

6 – Comey cited the Steele dossier in the applications to monitor Page even though his own FBI determined the document was “only minimally corroborated.”

The GOP memo relates that after dossier author Christopher Steele was terminated months earlier as an FBI source a “source validation report conducted by an independent unit within FBI assessed Steele’s reporting as only minimally corroborated.” Still, Comey saw fit, according to the Republican and Democrat memos, to utilize the dossier in the FISA documents. He also briefed Trump and then-President Barack Obama on the dossier contents.

7 – Comey admitted to pushing back against a request from Trump to possibly investigate the origins of claims made inside the dossier. 

According to the GOP memo, senior officials at the FBI were aware that Clinton and the DNC partially financed Steele’s work when they applied for the FISA warrant on October 21, 2016. That disclosure raises questions about Comey’s June 2017 prepared remarks for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in which he related that he pushed back against a suggestion from Trump to investigate the origins of the dossier claims.

The former FBI chief stated that following a January 6 Oval Office meeting with Intelligence Community leaders, Comey “remained alone with the President Elect to brief him on some personally sensitive aspects of the information assembled during the assessment.”

It is clear Comey was referring to the dossier since he writes that the “salacious and unverified” material was about to be publically reported by the news media. Four days after that briefing, the dossier was published by BuzzFeed.

In his statement summarizing his conversation with Trump, Comey refers to Russian prostitutes, a key component of the dossier:

He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia.

In a private White House dinner with Trump on January 27, Comey says the topic of the “salacious material” again came up and he reveals that Trump was considering asking the FBI to investigate the origins of the claims. Comey pushed back against that idea.

Comey writes:

During the dinner, the President returned to the salacious material I had briefed him about on January 6, and, as he had done previously, expressed his disgust for the allegations and strongly denied them. He said he was considering ordering me to investigate the alleged incident to prove it didn’t happen. I replied that he should give that careful thought because it might create a narrative that we were investigating him personally, which we weren’t, and because it was very difficult to prove a negative. He said he would think about it and asked me to think about it.

However, according to the GOP memo, senior FBI officials already knew the political origins of the dossier months before Comey met with Trump.

8 – Comey briefed Trump and Obama on the contents of the dossier in an official, formal classified briefing even though he knew the document’s political origins, his own FBI determined the document to be “only minimally corroborated”, and Comey himself later referred to the dossier as “unverified.” The briefing was subsequently leaked to the news media and started a flurry of publicity about the wild accusations inside the dossier.

As Breitbart News documented, the leak about Comey’s dossier briefing to Trump set in motion a barrage of news media attention on the dossier, including the release of the document to the public. The briefing also may have provided the veneer of respectability to a document circulated within the news media but widely considered too unverified to publicize.

The GOP memo relates that in early January 2017, prior to Trump’s inauguration, Comey briefed Trump and Obama on the dossier even though months later Comey would label the dossier as containing “salacious and unverified” material.

On January 10, CNN was first to report the leaked information that the controversial contents of the dossier were presented during classified briefings inside classified documents presented one week earlier to Obama and Trump.

The news network cited “multiple U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the briefings” – in other words, officials leaking information about classified briefings – revealing the dossier contents were included in a two-page synopsis that served as an addendum to a larger report on Russia’s alleged attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Prior to CNN’s report leaking the Comey briefing to Trump, which was picked up by news agencies worldwide, the contents of the dossier had been circulating among news media outlets, but the sensational claims were largely considered too risky to publish.

All that changed when the dossier contents were presented to Obama and Trump during the classified briefings. In other words, Comey’s briefings themselves and the subsequent leak to CNN about those briefings by “multiple US officials with direct knowledge,” seem to have given the news media the opening to report on the dossier’s existence as well as allude to the document’s unproven claims.

CNN, for example, reported the documents state that “Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump” and contain “allegations that there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.”

9 – Comey’s FBI may have utilized a second dossier authored by Cody Shearer, a shadowy former tabloid journalist who has long been closely associated with various Clinton scandals.

The Democrats’ rebuttal states that the DOJ provided the FISA court with “additional information obtained through multiple independent sources that corroborate Steele’s reporting.” The rebuttal does not mention the names of the other “independent sources.”

Shearer reemerged in the news cycle in recent weeks when the Guardian newspaper reported that the FBI has been utilizing a second dossier authored by Shearer as part of its probe into Trump and alleged Russian collusion.

The Guardian reported the so-called Shearer memo was given to the FBI by Steele in October 2016 to back up some of his claims.

According to the Guardian report, the FBI was still assessing portions of the Shearer memo at the time the Guardian article was released. The newspaper reported that, like Steele’s dossier, Shearer’s memo cites an “unnamed source within Russia’s FSB” alleging that Trump was compromised by Russian intelligence during a 2013 trip to Moscow in which the future president purportedly engaged in “lewd acts in a five-star hotel.”

Shearer’s name was reportedly associated with a criminal referral of Steele by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC). That referral contains partially redacted sentences that Steele received information from someone in the State Department, who in turn had been in contact with a “foreign sub-source” who was in touch with a redacted name described as a “friend of the Clintons.”

Numerous media reports have since stated that the second dossier author mentioned in the Grassley-Graham memo was Shearer, an associate of longtime Clinton friend Sidney Blumenthal.

According to sources who spoke to CNN, Shearer’s information was passed from Blumenthal to Jonathan Winer, who at the time was a special State Department envoy for Libya working under then-Secretary of State John Kerry.

Citing the same source, CNN reported that Shearer’s dossier is “actually a set of notes based on conversations with reporters and other sources.” CNN reported that Shearer had “circulated those notes to assorted journalists, as well as to Blumenthal.”

Winer subsequently penned a Washington Post oped in which he conceded that while he was working at the State Department, he exchanged documents and information with Steele and that some of the information passed to Steele originated with Shearer. Winer acknowledged that he shared anti-Trump material with Steele passed to him by Sidney Blumenthal.

National Review previously dubbed Shearer a “Creepy Clinton Confidante” and “The Strangest Character in Hillary’s Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy.”

Police Uncover Antifa-Linked High-Explosives, Chemicals, and Mobile Bomb Factory


The authorities have uncovered an Antifa-linked hoard of chemicals, high-explosives, and a mobile bomb factory in Thuringia, Germany, according to local media.

There is some suggestion that the haul, which is suspected to be linked to alt-left extremism, has been played down for political reasons, Welt Am Sonntag reports.

Bodo Ramelow, Thuringia’s Minister-President and a member of Die Linke (The Left Party), gave one of the two individuals accused of being linked to the materials a democracy award for their commitment to taking on ‘Neo-Nazis’, according to WAS.

“The findings available so far suggest that the spokesman of an alliance honoured by the Ramelow government prepared explosives attacks,” said Mike Mohring, who is chairman of Angela Merkel’s nominally conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party in Thuringia, as well as CDU leader in the region’s parliament.

“The days-long, almost booming silence of the entire state government is more than strange.”

“We have a lot to do with extreme right-wing violence in Thuringia, but the escalation of left-wing violence at the G20 summit in Hamburg has shown that there is also a dangerous potential on this side of the spectrum,” admitted Thuringian Minister of the Interior Georg Maier.

Left Party parliamentarian Katharina König-Preuss, whose “anti-fascist” credentials are displayed prominently on her Twitter account, has been particularly damaged by the case, as she knows one of the accused personally.

One of the two accused, a 31-year-old wheelchair user, told WAS that the “plot allegations are total humbug, but that’s all I’m going to say.”

Police found quantities of butyric acid in the accused’s home, which WAS describes as “a malodorous chemical often used in attacks on political opponents” in Germany.

But he claims the acid was for his mother, to be used as “pesticides against voles and moles”.

Treason For Cash: Kerry & Biden Handed Sons $1.5 Billion China Deal That Threatened Our National Security

Peter Schweizer blew the lid off of Hillary Clinton’s pay-to-play scheme with his book Clinton Cash.  Schweizer meticulously detailed the link between donations to the Clinton Foundation and access and decisions while Clinton was the Secretary of State.  Thankfully, Schweizer is at it again.

Schweizer’s new book is called Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.  In it, Schweizer reveals that Hillary Clinton wasn’t the only person in the Obama administration growing fat off of backroom deals at the expense of our nation’s security.

“My frustration is not that the solid reporting on Trump has been too tough, but that the reporting on the Obama administration has been way too soft or in some cases nonexistent.” – Peter Schweizer

Breitbart News set the stage:

“According to an exclusive New York Post excerpt from the book, the Biden billion-dollar China deal occurred as follows. Hunter Biden was the principal of Rosemont Seneca Bohai.

“In December of 2013, Vice President Biden and his son Hunter flew aboard Air Force Two to China.  Ten days after the trip, a subsidiary of the Bank of China named Bohai Capital signed an exclusive deal with Hunter Biden’s firm to form a $1 billion joint-investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST.  The deal was later increased to $1.5 billion.”

Hunter Biden’s partner in Rosemont Seneca Bohai is Chris Heinz, stepson of the man who succeeded Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, John Kerry.  Cozy little arrangement, eh?

But that’s only half the story.

Former deputy assistant to President Trump, Sebastian Gorka, provided the rest of the story:

“The stepson of John Kerry, the son of Joseph Biden, when they were cabinet members of the Obama administration, create a new investment fund… then inked a billion-dollar deal with the Chinese government — the Bank of China. Then, together they proceeded… to buy a U.S. manufacturing company called Henniges, making very sensitive equipment — crucial to our American military here at home. This, look, I am very rarely at a loss for words Stuart, but this is potentially one of the biggest pay-for-play scandals we have ever seen outside of Uranium One.”

Democrat corruption has become a game of whack-a-mole.  Every time you think you’ve seen it all another scandal rears its ugly head.

And, as it turns out, Hillary was a piker when it came to selling out our national security.  At least in comparison to the king’s ransom – $1.5 billion – Biden and Kerry garnered for their kids by putting China in control of Henniges, manufacturers of “very sensitive equipment that is crucial to our military.”

And Obama continues to tell us he oversaw the most scandal free administration in history.  Perhaps he thinks that the media’s non-existent scrutiny of his Manchurian presidency makes it so.

Breaking: Anti-Trump Coup Leader McCabe Just Got The Worst News Of His Life … He’s Ruined

Dirty F.B.I. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who oversaw the destruction of evidence to hide the depth of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, has been fired.

Calls for McCabe’s firing had been coming from Trump loyalists for some time but the final nail in McCabe’s coffin was the findings of Inspector General Michael Horowitz who came to the conclusion that McCabe’s violations were so egregious that criminal charges should follow.

The Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) – composed of fellow FBI agents – joined I.G. Horowitz in calling for McCabe’s ouster just hours before he was set to retire.

The OPR usually protects their own so this is a stunning development coming as McCabe was readying himself to start receiving his cushy pension.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the announcement only moments ago.  His statement began:

“The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standands of honesty, integrity, and accountability.  As the OPR proposal stated, “all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand.

“Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”

As shocking as this development is, it will almost assuredly prove to be just the tip of the iceberg and is sending shockwaves through everyone associated with McCabe including the highest levels of the Obama administration.
