Millions of American patriots are cheering after Trump recently blasted the deep state for conducting illegal spying operations on his presidential campaign under the Obama administration. In a sudden move that so many of us have been waiting for, Trump announced that he will officially order Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fully investigate the FBI’s and DOJ’s political surveillance of his campaign.

“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” Trump wrote, according to Daily Caller.

Finally, Trump has taken the one step for which many of his supporters have been waiting. For more than a year, the President has been patient while the deep state continued its sham Russian collusion investigation under their operative Special Counsel Robert Mueller and a team of Trump-hating Democrat lawyers.

Mueller was only allowed to run amock and aim his unchecked power at any political enemy after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself on Thursday, March 2, 2017, just weeks after Trump’s inauguration. Anyone who doesn’t realize Sessions is the lynchpin to the deep state’s operation is a fool.

Numerous federal lawmakers have called for Mueller to bring his investigation to end after a year of investigating with nothing to show for it besides a screwy court case against a Russian corporation named Concord Management and Consulting LLC, that recently humiliated Mueller’s legal team in court.

According to The Hill, Mueller has still failed to hand over two terabytes of evidence his team claims to have possession of to the court, and that data is said to be composed mostly of Facebook profiles in Russian. The defense attorney for the company, Eric Dubelier, complained to the court that Mueller’s team has likely not translated the data into English, leaving many to believe that Mueller is resorting to sloppy litigation tactics to cover his butt.

In addition to Mueller’s most recent humiliating court episode, numerous reports have surfaced of a spy monitoring the Trump campaign in 2016 before the FBI opened an official investigation. Disturbing reports were published by The New York Times and The Washington Post on Friday, May 18, 2018, which provided details of a top-secret CIA and FBI source who was employed to spy on two Trump campaign advisers and reportedly initiated contact with a third.

The reports did not directly identify Cambridge University professor Stefan Halper for fears of threats to his physical well being, but investigative reports from the Daily Caller News Foundation and other news sources matched the description of the top-secret spy with him.

Halper had made contact with Trump advisers George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, and Sam Clovis during the 2016 campaign. As the reports broke, Trump lit up Twitter with a furious tweet in response to the shocking news.

“If the FBI or DOJ was infiltrating a campaign for the benefit of another campaign, that is a really big deal. Only the release or review of documents that the House Intelligence Committee (also, Senate Judiciary) is asking for can give the conclusive answers. Drain the Swamp!” Trump wrote.

On Sunday, May 20, 2018, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes supported the President during an interview with Fox News‘ Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo. “If they ran a spy ring or an informant ring and they were paying people within the Trump campaign if any of that is true, that is an absolute red line,” Nunes said.

“There is not an honest person in this country who can believe that taxpayer dollars, going to fund this ring and operate like this, like what’s said in The New York Times I would think had quite a bit of detail on it. If any of that is true, that’s a red line in this country. You can’t do this to political campaigns,” Nunes continued.

In my opinion, a showdown with Obama’s deep state is long overdue. Trump’s new order for the Department of Justice isn’t going to be optional. Sessions can either comply or step down as attorney general. Under Obama, the FBI and CIA were operating like rogue arms of the government for the benefit of one political party. This must never happen again in our country.

BREAKING: Omnibus Bill Quietly Gives Trump Admin Massive War-Chest To Crush The Deep State

Trump’s supporters calling talk radio to voice their disgust should take a deep breath and reconsider their abandonment of our valiant president.  Draining the swamp was never going to be easy but, if we’ve learned anything along the way, Trump never lets us down.

And a careful reading of the $1.3 Trillion omnibus spending bill – something virtually no one got to do except the president before he signed it – reveals why.  The bill contains massive funding for the appointment of special prosecutors.

It’s informative to know that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation cost taxpayers approximately $7 million over the first six months of his investigation.

With his investigation winding down why does the omnibus provide more than $26 million dollars for special counsels?

From page 571 of the omnibus:

That about doubles annualized spending at a time when Mueller should be completing his work.  That can lead to only one conclusion.

The funding must be for a second Special Council.  An increasing number of Republican senators and representatives have been calling for the appointment of one and rumors have been circulating inside the beltway that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has already empowered someone to start putting the evidence together.

While the mainstream media defends the corruption of the FBI and the DOJ while in co-operation with the highest levels of the Obama administration, it is becoming common knowledge among the DC elite that their gig will soon be up.

That’s because the criminal conspiracy to turn American assets into personal enrichment is so widespread it involves political appointees and hires embedded in virtually every government agency.  The IRS, EPA, State Department, DOJ, and FBI are just some of the agencies that became visibly corrupted.

Whatever funding Robert Mueller required to frame our president would be just a small fraction of the money a second special counsel would require to ferret out the corrupt holdovers from the 2.2 million federal employees.

That brings us to another funding provision, this one on page 534 of the omnibus bill:

5 U.S. Code § 3109 – Employment of experts and consultants; temporary or intermittent

This section appears to give the president, or his appointee, up to $322 million for the costs of special counsel and other fees.  The fact that this massive sum comes under the funding provisions for the FCC is very telling.  Much of the war against Donald Trump has been waged by the broadcast news, general television programming, and Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube that all come under FCC jurisdiction.

This level of funding, when compared to what Robert Mueller’s has run thorugh, appears to authorize a much more extensive investigative effort – not a witch-hunt to destroy one man but an effort to map the depth of Clinton through Obama-era corruption that was put in place across the entire government apparatus.

If this is the case then the Trump administration has almost 22 times the funding that Mueller exhausted with which to pursue the largest RICO investigation ever embarked upon.

But that’s not the full extent of it either.

The Offices of Inspector General have been funded with at least another $140 million expressly allocated to conducting investigations into corruption within the departments they oversee.  (See pages 535, 546, 556, 565, 571, and 573 of the omnibus)

The most widely known Inspector General is Michael Horowitz whose investigation led to a shake-up at the highest levels of the FBI and the firing of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe for his biased handling of the Clinton email investigation and for his part in the Trump witch-hunt.

But there are many more IG’s sitting on information just as important to ferreting out the rampant corruption that has been growing like mold on the dying carcass of the federal bureaucracy over the past 30 years.

All told there’s close to, if not more than, a half billion dollars in the omnibus that President Trump can direct to mapping the extensive network of criminal co-conspirators that thought little to nothing of selling America’s assets for their personal self-enrichment.

Couple all of that money with an $80 Billion dollar increase in sorely needed modernization funds for the military and you come to the realization that more than half of the spending increase went to giving him what he needs to begin seriously draining the swamp.

Trust in Trump!

BREAKING: Gun Confiscation Law Just PASSED! THIS MEANS WAR!

An Illinois House of Representatives bill labeled HB 1465 has now passed with a vote of 54-51 on February 28th. The bill was sponsored by the gun grabbing Illinois Democrat Representative Michelle Mussman. What is perhaps the worst part of this is that after being introduced in the upper house by Senate President Democrat from Chicago, John Cullerton, the bill added seven co-sponsors in the last week. Among them was Republican Senator Jim Oberweis from Green Grove who acquired an “A” rating from the NRA when he was the 2014 Republican nominee for U.S. Senate. We are looking at another turncoat who needs to be primaried ASAP.

The worst part of this bill isn’t the fact that it bans people under 21 years of age from owning any semi-auto firearm, it’s the fact that it’s retroactive and it would force current law-abiding owners to turn in their guns. Not doing so would render them felons.

The bill stipulates that any person under 21 years of age who owns a semi-auto firearm would have 90 days to turn in their weapons or face the possibility of incarceration.


Fox2 Now reports:

“Possession of assault-style weapons by anyone under 21 would be illegal under legislation that the Illinois House endorsed.

The plan sponsored by Democratic Rep. Michelle Mussman of Schaumburg would prohibit minors from buying or possessing high-capacity weapons, attachments, .50-caliber rifles andcartridges. They would have 90 days to transfer ownership.

The legislation was OK’d 64-51.

Critics decried the idea that the government would confiscate property. Mussman said authorities will not visit homes to pick up weapons. But a first offense for getting caught with prohibited firearms would be a misdemeanor offense.

The Illinois House has voted to ban “bump stock” accessories that transform rifles into assault-style weapons.

The legislation was the first of seven gun-restriction measures the House is considering Wednesday. The plan sponsored by Democratic Rep. Martin Moylan of Des Plaines was OK’d 83-31.

Lawmakers are responding to the Parkland, Florida massacre on Feb. 14 that killed 17 students and the fatal shooting of a Chicago police officer a day earlier.

Moylan sponsored similar legislation last fall because the gunman in the October Las Vegas mass shooting used a bump stock. It failed then because critics said it was too broad.”

Now it has come to this? The politicians in the Illinois legislature think they can stop crimes by prohibiting the ownership of firearms to law-abiding 18-21-year olds. Although at that same age you can go fight a war and drive a car. Meanwhile, the city of Chicago is a crime infested gun controlled town where any criminal can buy a semi-auto firearm for pennies on the dollar in the streets. Mayor Rahm Emanuel once said, “never waste a good crisis.” It looks like the Chicago politicians have wasted no time whatsoever in taking his advice.

Today 18-21-year-olds, tomorrow 21-25-year-olds, and next week the rest of us! We know the drill!

Chicago Gun Ban Law bills:

“On February 28th, the Illinois state House of Representatives will be hearing a number of gun control bills that will severely impact your Second Amendment rights. In addition to the egregious dealer licensing bill, Senate Bill 1657, there will also be a gun control package that the state House Judiciary Committee rushed through on February 27th without considering the effects of such legislation. Please contact your state Representative and Senator and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 1657 and House Bills 1465, 1467, 1468, and 1469. Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Representative and Senator.

Senate Bill 1657 would create onerous mandatory regulations, fees potentially in the thousands of dollars and excessive amounts of red tape that would almost assuredly force the closure of many firearm dealers, and prevent prospective owners from opening new ones. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) already licenses and closely monitors all federally licensed firearm dealers (FFLs) and strictly enforces any violation of federal law.

House Bill 1465, as amended by Representative Michelle Mussman (D-56), would deny law-abiding young adults under the age of 21 their Second Amendment rights by prohibiting them from possessing or purchasing commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, standard capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and .50 BMG caliber rifles. The bill would require adults under the age of 21 to dispose of such firearms within 90 days and to dispose of standard capacity magazines over ten rounds in capacity immediately. In addition, language in the bill would prohibit out-of-state visitors from being present in Illinois for longer than 24 hours with such firearms or standard capacity magazines.

House Bill 1467, sponsored by Representative Martin Moylan (D-55), would ban “bump stocks” and “trigger cranks.” The broad and vague language could be interpreted to ban components used on competition grade firearms. It would ban various antique and historical reproduction firearms such as Gatling guns, which are owned by collectors and historical reenactors. It would require owners of “bump stocks” and “trigger cranks” to dispose of them within 90 days.

House Bill 1468, sponsored by Representative Jonathan Carroll (D-57), would require a 72 hour waiting period for certain commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and .50 BMG caliber rifles. Current Illinois law requires a 72 hour waiting period for handguns and a 24 hour waiting period for long guns. The arbitrary distinction in this bill will cause confusion among firearm sellers about which long guns require a 72 hour waiting period. In addition, it would also ban the sale of these firearms to non-residents.

House Bill 1469, sponsored by Representative Daniel Burke (D-1), would ban standard capacity ammunition magazines over 10 rounds in capacity and body armor. The vast majority of handguns have standard capacity magazines holding more than 10 rounds. These magazines would have to be disposed of within 90 days.”

The NRA has just shut down the anti-gun propaganda the Broward Sheriff’s Office is spouting.

In response to Sheriff Israel accusing NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch of not standing behind the children, the NRA’s Twitter account fired back:

“No Sheriff Israel you were the one that didn’t PROTECT these children and that is your job. You run the largest fully accredited sheriff’s office in the United States, yet your office failed this community.”

Broward Sheriffs have recently come under fire after their deputies failed to respond during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

BREAKING NEWS: TRUMP Just Declared WAR!

When illegal aliens and migrants cross the border from countries like El Salvador, they are not sending their best and brightest by any means. Drug dealers, rapists, murderers, and all manner of criminals are sneaking into the United States in droves making the U.S. a dumping ground for the all the problems that ail the rest of the world. While former President Barrack Obama released nearly 600 illegal aliens convicted of a variety of sex crimes into the general populace of America in 2015 because their home countries did not want them and would not take them, current President Donald Trump is taking an entirely different tactic.

In a nearly three minute video posted to Twitter, President Trump addressed the “very vicious threat” known as MS-13. In the video, he declares “war” on MS13 and outlines his plan to combat the dangerous gang operating with thousands of members in at least 40 states.  This gang is responsible for countless murders and a significant increase in human trafficking, as well as a host of other heinous crimes across the nation as they infiltrate our porous borders.

Also known as Mara Salvatrucha, MS-13 was started by Central American immigrants in Los Angeles in the 1980s.  Members are mainly from El Salvador but has also grown to include Mexicans, Hondurans and other Central and South Americans. MS-13’s motto is “mata, viola, controla” – which means “kill, rape, control,” according to Robert Hur, an official with the Justice Department. Hur states – “They seek to live up to this motto through truly shocking acts of violence designed to instill fear: vicious machete attacks, execution-style gunshots, gang rape and human trafficking.”

Gang members perpetuate a number of various criminal acts, according to the FBI, including murder, rape, home invasions, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery. The FBI reports that most of the crimes are carried out against members of rival gangs, but many times innocent people are hurt as well.

Even the left-leaning mainstream media acknowledges there is a problem and used actual legitimate sources rather than the usual anonymous conjecture they are famous for. The Washington Post reported in May 2017 about how the government of El Salvador is freaking out over the record number of MS-13 gang members President Trump has started to deport back to their home countries.

“This year the U.S. government has deported 398 gang members to this country, compared with 534 in all of 2016, according to Salvadoran government statistics. This sharp increase in the rate of gang deportations — and the prospect of more gang roundups in the United States — has prompted Salvadoran authorities to hold emergency meetings and propose new legislation to monitor suspected criminals who are being sent home.”

The New York Times also reported that immigration arrests were up 38% for the first three months of 2017 over the same period last year, stating – “‘From Jan. 22 to April 29, ICE officers arrested 41,318 people, at a rate of more than 400 people per day, compared with 30,028 over roughly the same period in 2016, the data showed. These statistics reflect President Trump’s commitment to enforce our immigration laws fairly and across the board,’ said Thomas Homan, the acting director of ICE, on a phone call with reporters.”

According to President Trump, part of his plan includes changing how immigrants enter the country as he vowed to change America’s “sad, weak and pathetic immigration laws” which he believes MS13 exploits to their advantage and to the detriment of Americans.  He also again pledged to end the lottery system and chain migration.

Under current law, immigrants already residing in the United States can petition for visas for their spouses and minor children. Once the petitioner becomes a citizen they can ask for additional family members, like parents and adult children, to come over.

President also spoke of his plan to stop the visa lottery, which he believes should never have been allowed in the first place. President Trump states – “People enter into a lottery to come into our country. What kind of a system is that? It is time for Congress to act and to protect Americans. Every member of Congress should choose the side of law enforcement and the side of the American people. That’s the way it has to be.”

In addition to the video, President Trump tweeted what his administration believes to be three major priorities for reforming the current issues plaguing immigration policy in America.  He states – “My Administration has identified three major priorities for creating a safe, modern and lawful immigration system: fully securing the border, ending chain migration, and canceling the visa lottery.  Congress must secure the immigration system and protect Americans.”

Trump said his administration identified three major priorities when it comes to strengthening the country's immigration system 

In a roundtable at the White House, New York City Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official Angel Melendez told President Donald Trump that, in 2017 alone, nearly 41,000 UACs or Unaccompanied Alien Children, had been resettled across the U.S. She further revealed there were nearly 22,000 “potential recruits” for the violent El Salvadorian MS-13 gang resettled across the United States as UACs in 2017.

Melendez states that of the almost 41,000 UACs resettled across the country about 21,881 are from either El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras and are male, as well as “in the right age for gang recruitment” ranging between 13 to 17 years old. She continued stating – “What I’m saying, understanding MS-13, is that they’re looking at these 21,000 unaccompanied alien children that came into those states as potential recruits to continue to fill in their ranks … Another thing that we’ve been able to look at is, across certain operations that we’ve been able to manage throughout the last couple of years, 30 percent is a consistent number that we’ve seen of MS-13 members that have been arrested that came into this country as unaccompanied alien children.”

John Cronan from the DOJ’s Criminal Division also spoke with President Trump at the roundtable and reported that currently there are approximately 10,000 KNOWN MS-13 gang members living across the United States, noting in particular that these gang members are “primarily composed of immigrants or descendants of immigrants from El Salvador, and they have infiltrated our entire country.”

Cronan states – “The reason MS-13 is so massive in our country, the reason why they have 10,000 members in 40 states and the District of Columbia, is because many of those gang members have illegally entered our country. When we fail to enforce our immigration and human smuggling laws, when we have loopholes in our immigration laws, and when we have porous borders and insufficient enforcement of our immigration laws, MS-13 can simply replenish its jail population by sending more and more gang members across our borders.”

BREAKING: Israel Launches “Large Scale” Military Attack

If you’ve ever had the honor of standing side-by-side a soldier of the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), then you know that when these men and women go to war, they are absolutely lethal. Let’s just say I’d hate to be on the side who opposes them, which is exactly why their nation exists after being surrounded by enemies for decades.

Breitbart reports:

(ASSOCIATED PRESS) The Israeli military shot down an Iranian drone that infiltrated the country early Saturday before launching a “large-scale attack” on at least a dozen Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria. Israel called it a “severe and irregular violation of Israeli sovereignty” and warned of further action against the unprecedented Iranian aggression.

The military said its planes faced massive anti-aircraft fire from Syria that forced two pilots to abandon an F-16 jet that crashed in northern Israel. One pilot was seriously wounded and the other lightly. Syrian officials reported large explosions in the center of the country and the Syrian counter fire set off warning sirens throughout northern Israel.

The Israeli strikes marked its most significant engagement since the fighting in neighboring Syria began in 2011 and said Iran would be held responsible for its outcome.

“This is a serious Iranian attack on Israeli territory. Iran is dragging the region into an adventure in which it doesn’t know how it will end,” Israel’s chief military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, said in a special statement. “Whoever is responsible for this incident is the one who will pay the price.”

Gen. Hossein Salami, acting commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, did not acknowledge Israel’s claim it shot down the drone. “We do not confirm any such news from Israel,” he said. But the joint operations room for the Syrian military and its allies denied the drone violated Israeli airspace, saying it was on a regular mission gathering intelligence on Islamic State militants.

Syria’s Defense Ministry said in statements on its website that its air defenses responded successfully to the Israeli operation and hit more than one plane. “The Israeli enemy has once again attacked some of our military bases in the southern area and our air defenses responded and foiled the aggression,” it said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman were convening the top brass at military headquarters in Tel Aviv to discuss further response.

Breaking: Iran Attacks Israel Multiple Times. Israel Mobilizes for War

The situation in the Middle East took a drastic turn for the worse early Saturday morning.

An Iranian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), or drone, entered Israeli airspace and was shot down by Israeli forces.

Immediately after, Israeli F-16s attacked Iranian targets in Syria.

The focus of the strike was reportedly the facility from where the Iranian drone was piloted.

During the raid, Iranian-operated Syrian anti-aircraft managed to shoot down one of the Israeli F-16s.

The plane crashed inside Israeli territory, and the pilots safely ejected before being hit.

Syrian media claimed that more than one Israeli aircraft was shot down.

In the following hours, Israeli aircraft bombed as many as 18 additional Syrian and Iranian military installations and mobilized ground forces in the Golan Heights border region in preparation for an escalation.

A statement released by the Israeli military read:

“The IDF is following events and is fully prepared for further action according to decisions and need.”

BREAKING! They Found Her Fingerprints All OVER IT!! Trump’s READY FOR WAR!

As we go further down the rabbit hole of deception, it looks more and more as though the entire basis of the investigation into the Trump campaign’s so-called Russian ties was based on little more than fabrication and falsified documents.  In short, it is a political hit job carried out by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign in a quest for power and world domination. Naturally, Hillary is right at the center of the deception and controversy in this massive bid for power against the will of the American people.

Her campaign’s fingerprints are on at least three separate pieces of information fed to the FBI, including the Christopher Steele dossier.  A dossier that many Republicans claim formed the foundation for a judge to grant a FISA warrant allowing the Federal Bureau of Investigation to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page. It has now been confirmed on the record as of Thursday by a former State Department official that associates of Hillary and her campaign were funneling information to Steele while he was compiling a dossier.  The same dossier commissioned, bought, and paid for by Hillary’s campaign and the DNC all in a subversive disinformation effort.

The revelations just continue to pile on. Each one more damning than the last as this follows the recent revelations that a top Department of Justice official fed the FBI information compiled by his wife.  His wife who just happened to be working for Fusion GPS – the very same firm who was being paid to compile dirt on the Trump campaign while being paid by both the Clintons, their lackeys, and the DNC.

The dossier was quoted “extensively” in the FBI’s application for a FISA warrant in their concerted effort to spy on the Trump campaign according to the recent memo released by the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.  A January letter to the FBI further revealed two Senate Republicans also confirmed that Steele’s now infamous dossier formed a “significant portion” of the warrant application. The letter from Sens. Chuck Grassley, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, and Lindsey Graham was made public earlier this week.

Grassley stated in the letter – “It is troubling enough that the Clinton Campaign funded Mr. Steele’s work, but that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele allegations raises additional concerns about his credibility.” 

The Federalist compiled a list when taken in its entirety forms what we know so far about the extent of Hillary’s involvement in the FBI’s Russian Collusion case –

1. Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal funneled information to the FBI through a contact at the State Department.
In an account published by The Washington Post, former State Department official Jonathan Winer describes how research compiled by a Clinton ally made its way into his hands and then to the FBI. Winer was in charge of combating transnational organized crime at the State Department under Bill Clinton in the 1990s and returned under the Obama administration to work on international law enforcement. Between his two gigs, he became friends with Steele, who as a result began feeding information to the State Department and tipped Winer off in Sept. 2016 to the Trump dossier he was compiling.

That same month, Winer me Blumenthal, who provided him with notes on Trump and Russia compiled by another Clinton insider, Cody Shearer. “What struck me was how some of the material echoed Steele’s but appeared to involve different sources,” Winer writes in The Washington Post. He decided to show the notes to Steele, who told him the information could be used to corroborate his dossier. Steele walked away with a copy of the notes, which he provided to the FBI.

Shearer and Blumenthal, known respectively as “Mr. Fixer” and “Vicious Sid” in Clinton world, are staunch allies of the Clintons. Winer notes he didn’t know whether the information Blumenthal fed him was accurate, but says he fed it to Steel anyway because he was “alarmed at Russia’s role in the 2016 election.”

Grassley and Graham express concern in their criminal referral that Steele was “vulnerable to manipulation” while compiling his dossier on Trump, as he has admitted to meeting with at least four different news outlets during that time (in violation of an agreement he had with the FBI), and indicated he received unsolicited and unverified tips on Trump and included them in his dossier. “Simply put, the more people who contemporaneously knew that Mr. Steele was compiling his dossier, the more likely it was vulnerable to manipulation,” they wrote in their letter.

Of course, the Clinton network knew to some extent about the dossier, since Hillary’s campaign and the DNC had commissioned and funded the effort through Fusion GPS. Whether Blumenthal was planting bogus information to manipulate Steele or passing along what he regarded as a legitimate tip is unclear, but it’s certainly not a good look.

Regardless, this second unverified and unsolicited dossier made its way to the FBI thanks to the Clinton camp.

2. Steele was at that same time compiling a dossier paid for by the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

As noted, Steele was already well into work on a dossier paid for by the Clinton campaign and DNC regarding Trump’s Russia ties when Winer approached him. Perkins Coie, a law firm representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, had hired Fusion GPS to dig up opposition research on Trump prior to the election. Fusion in turn employed Steele, a former British spy, to compile the dossier. His work was entirely funded by Democrats.

The FBI was never able to verify the salacious claims in Steele’s dossier, so relied heavily on his reputation to infuse the document with credibility before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court, according to the Republican memo and criminal referral. The bureau continued to vouch for him before the court in subsequent applications to renew the warrant, even after learning he was “desperate” to stop Trump from getting elected, had broken the bureau’s trust by dishing to the press in one case, and potentially lied to the bureau outright in several other instances — a criminal offense. The court learned none of this, and continued to grant the FBI permission to spy on a U.S. citizen based in part on Steele’s research.

3. A top DOJ official fed the FBI research on Trump from his wife also paid for by the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

The third piece of information provided to the FBI in connection with Clinton allies is research compiled by the wife of former senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, who worked closely with Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and her replacement, Rod Rosenstein. Ohr was also a friend of Steele.

Ohr’s wife was employed by Fusion GPS to help compile opposition research on Trump. According to the Republican memo, Ohr eventually turned over all of the information she compiled — while working ultimately for the Clinton campaign and the DNC — to the FBI. It’s unclear whether this information made it into the FISA applications, but it’s one more example of evidence received by the FBI that can be traced back to the Clinton campaign.

According to the Republican memo, the FISA court was never informed of the Ohr’s connections to Fusion GPS and Steele.

In sum: To obtain a warrant to spy on a Trump campaign associate, the FBI relied heavily on a dossier that was never substantiated, put together by a former spy “desperate” to stop Trump. That dossier was paid for by powerful Democrats on Trump’s rival campaign, who also paid for opposition research the FBI received from a powerful couple inside President Obama’s DOJ. Separately, two Clinton allies worked together to funnel a second unsubstantiated dossier to the FBI through the State Department.

Americans Declare War on Trump-Hating Hollywood, and There’s More…

Americans have finally had enough of Hollywood’s pandering to the liberal agenda (among other flaws), and Tinseltown is paying the price, literally.

Box office numbers for the summer reveal a continued and accelerating downward trend, with domestic revenues 6.3% behind last year, and even further behind 2015, 2013 and 2012.

Attendance numbers are even worse – 16% below last year, and at a 25-year low.

There are a number of reasons for this. Customer service has been waning, ideas have been lackluster resulting in a LOT of movie bombs, and, most importantly to some, Hollywood has become so unbearably liberal that it’s now difficult to take many actors seriously.

America’s growing frustration with Hollywood wasn’t seen only in declining ticket sales, but also in falling investment.

Breitbart reported:

With 11,873 screens in 1,009 theaters, AMC Entertainment is the single largest theater operator in America and — are you ready for this? — its stock price has collapsed a whopping -45% since Memorial Day. Two other monster chains, Regal and Cinemark, have seen their stocks drop by -28% and -18%, respectively. Even Imax, one of the pillars (along with 3D) of the premium pricing schemes that have kept the box office looking relatively good these past few years, saw a -31% drop in the price of its shares.

And, so, Hollywood has entered a vicious cycle of its own making.

If investors start pulling out, Hollywood can’t make the big blockbusters that put movie-goers in the seats. And if the selection of good blockbusters thins out even further, who’s going to bother going to the theater?

Breaking: Trump Makes Proclamation On Possible North Korean War

President Trump has stated that it is “very possible” that the crisis with North Korea can’t be resolved peacefully.

From Zerohedge:

In an exclusive interview with Reuters, President Trump said on Wednesday that Russia is helping North Korea get supplies in violation of international sanctions and that Pyongyang is getting “closer every day” to being able to deliver a long-range missile to the United States. As a result, Trump said he hoped the standoff with Pyongyang could be resolved “in a peaceful way, but it’s very possible that it can’t.”

Having learned his lesson from his recent WSJ interview, Trump declined to comment when asked whether he had engaged in any communications at all with Kim, with whom he has exchanged public insults and threats, heightening tensions in the region. He did, however, blame Moscow:

“Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea,” Trump said during the Oval Office interview. “What China is helping us with, Russia is denting. In other words, Russia is making up for some of what China is doing.”

Which is ironic because it was a Chinese, not Russian ship, that was recently observed illegally selling oil to North Korea. It’s even more ironic that in the interview, Trump praised China for its efforts to restrict oil and coal supplies to North Korea but said Beijing could do much more to help constrain Pyongyang.

In any case, with North Korea still the major global challenge facing Trump this year, the president cast doubt during the 53-minute interview whether talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would be useful. In the past he has not ruled out direct talks with Kim.

“I’d sit down, but I‘m not sure that sitting down will solve the problem,” he said, noting that past negotiations with the North Koreans by his predecessors had failed to rein in North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.

“They’ve talked for 25 years and they’ve taken advantage of our presidents, of our previous presidents,” he said.

The remarks come after Trump’s statement earlier in January, in which he said he is “absolutely” willing to talk on the phone to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un if certain conditions are met.
