Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly cited that discredited dossier as the basis for the current investigation of “Russian interference” in the 2016 election, which has been taken up by Robert Mueller, a friend of Comey’s who served as FBI Director under presidents Bush and Obama.
From the New York Post:
A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party.
The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.
What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters.” But congressional sources says it’s actually an opposition-research group for Democrats, and the founders, who are more political activists than journalists, have a pro-Hillary, anti-Trump agenda.
“These weren’t mercenaries or hired guns,” a congressional source familiar with the dossier probe said. “These guys had a vested personal and ideological interest in smearing Trump and boosting Hillary’s chances of winning the White House.”
Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.
More, federal records show a key co-founder and partner in the firm was a Hillary Clinton donor and supporter of her presidential campaign.

(Natural News) Moms Across America has just released a powerful new video called “Communities Rising” that exposes the devastating toxicity of GMOs and glyphosate. Watch the video now at this YouTube link, or watch it below.
“This film highlights everyday citizens across the world that are taking matters into their own hands, healing their families, raising awareness about organic food, and changing local pesticide policies,” filmmaker Zen H. told Natural News. “I’m confident that we’re in the process of ending this chemical era and taking back our food supply.”
GMOs and glyphosate are the leading toxins used in the mass poisoning of our children and our food soils. This mass poisoning is being underwritten and promoted by the deceptive media, prostituted science shills (who are routinely bribed to promote toxic poisons) and even Monsanto-funded “smear” groups that attack clean food activists. That’s why it’s so important that you not only watch this film but share it with others.
Every mom in America needs to see this documentary. Every consumer of food urgently needs to be informed of the systemic poisoning that’s being conducted right now, across nearly the entire U.S. food supply.
Watch this important film below, share it with others, and visit MomsAcrossAmerica.com to join the movement. Read Glyphosate.news for more breaking news and science headlines on the toxicity of this deadly chemical that’s being sprayed on food crops all across this nation. All our lives are at stake. We either stand up against this mass poisoning or we die of cancer, Alzheimer’s, depression, suicide and other serious diseases caused by a toxic food supply that’s been poisoned on purpose.
Taxpayers in California will soon be forced to sponsor so-called “Social Justice Activists” (SJAs) who will be tasked with patrolling college campuses and “educating” their fellow students about the systematic oppression supposedly being instigated upon them by white, straight males.

Last week, United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he was officially putting an end to a corrupt “slush fund” operation that was used by Democrats all throughout the Obama administration. As Breitbart News notes, for decades, the Justice Department has encouraged their defendants to donate to third parties as part of the settlements. But since Barack Obama took office, the practice essentially turned into a slush fund, and corporate money started to be funneled into the hands of non-government organizations.
Such organizations include the National Council of La Raza, which is a Latino racial advocacy group that supports illegal immigration, the National Urban League, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, and NeighborWorks America.

They added that Clinton’s aides were able to keep security clearances because the State Department designated them as “research assistants” which allowed them to “take their State Department clearance with them after their official service at the department.”
Clinton’s justification? So that she could and her aides could help “write her memoir,” Fox News reported.
Grassley had “repeatedly” asked the State Department whether or not Clinton had her security clearance revoked but “the Obama administration refused to respond,” Grassley said in a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson last March.
That same month, Judicial Watch said it was “outrageous” Clinton and her aides could still have access after they left the State Department, especially given their past impropriety with classified information.
“It is so unimaginatively offensive that Hillary Clinton or her staff would have any access to classified or top secret information. It is a mindblower,” Judicial Watch Director of Investigations and Research Chris Farrell said.
The FBI concluded last July that Clinton and her top aides were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information” and that “there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information.”
However, then-FBI Director James Comey concluded that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring charges to Hillary because they could not prove Clinton “intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information.”
Given the fact that Clinton still has security clearance at the department even with the Trump administration in power, it’s reasonable to assume that Obama/Clinton holdovers are gumming the works within the department to make the government as ineffective for Trump as possible.
The establishment media’s bias was on full display following James Comey’s congressional hearing Wednesday. Headlines focused on Comey’s testimony that President Donald Trump “lied,” concealing the more pertinent and shocking revelations exposed during the hearing.
So, what does the establishment media decide to report: that Donald Trump “lied” about why he fired James Comey.
With the establishment media so heavily invested in Comey’s testimony destroying the president, they were easily seduced into focusing on the one claim they could use to mislead readers. Comey, referring to an NBC interview in which Trump claims Comey was fired for being a “showboat” and a “grandstander,” while overseeing an FBI that has been in “virtual turmoil,” oh-so shockingly, called them “lies.”
Sounds like sour grapes from a former employee that got the boot to me.
That didn’t stop Salon from running a headline reading “James Comey Says Donald Trump Lied, ‘Plain and Simple.’” NBC lead with the same quote, but in a effort to be a tad bit more honest, added “about firing” at the end. Thank you, NBC.
Kind of odd to lead with that headline when Comey just revealed that Loretta Lynch, Obama’s acting Attorney General, in an effort to “align”campaign rhetoric with FBI matters, didn’t want the Clinton email investigation called an “investigation,” instead insisting Comey call it a “matter.”
Comey even admitted to leaking his own memos of private conversations with the president, which could lead to a criminal investigation of his own.
Why then, does The Washington Post‘s headline read “Comey: White House lied about me, FBI?” Perhaps their focus should be on correcting the record after reporting the false information their sources close to Comey were feeding them, claiming Comey didn’t tell Trump he was under investigation:
The winner for most egregious headline and article came from Salon, calling the Comey testimony Trump’s “I am not a crook moment” and declaring that “Now it’s the cover up, not the crime.” The article is dedicated entirely to tying the Donald Trump Russian allegations to the Watergate scandal, after admitting, explicitly, that not a single law enforcement agency or media outlet have found “any evidence” that the president or anyone in his campaign “colluded with the Russians.”
If there is no evidence of Russian collusion, how can you compare allegations to actual criminal activity?
The establishment media clearly did not get the news they had hoped for from the Comey testimony, leading to an array of “lying Trump’s a lair” headlines, instead of an honest and accurate reportage of the facts.

New peer-reviewed papers conclude that global warming is a myth perpetuated against the public in order to raise money for elite causes.
According to 80 graphs taken from 58 peer-reviewed papers published in 2017 – man-made global warming theory is all based on a huge lie.
Breitbart.com reports: By “global warming” these papers don’t, of course, mean the mild warming of around 0.8 degrees Celsius that the planet has experienced since the middle of the 19th century as the world crawled out of the Little Ice Age. Pretty much everyone, alarmists and skeptics alike, is agreed on that.
Rather, they mean “global warming” in the sense that is most commonly used today by grant-troughing scientists, and huxter politicians, and scaremongering green activists, and brainwashed mainstream media (MSM) environmental correspondents. “Global warming” as in the scary, historically unprecedented, primarily man-made phenomenon which we must address urgently before the icecaps melt and the Pacific islands disappear beneath the waves and all the baby polar bears drown.

Lt.Gen. Mike Flynn Lied on his Top Secret Papers!
Flynn is just the tip of the iceberg of senior military officers who have violated civilian/military law. For some time now, I have been documenting the multiple miscreant activities committed by one or another senior U.S. military officers. Our U.S. Military is in serious moral trouble.
Several years ago, Gen. David Petraeus pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor when he handed over his personal notebooks replete with top secret sources and methods to his then paramour.
The truth of course is far more ugly.
Petraeus would have been charged with a major felony and would have been sentenced to several years in prison if it not had been for his lawyers and FBI Director James Comey. Comey accepted a lesser charge in order to avoid prosecution in a plea bargaining arrangement.
Similarly, up to twenty U.S. navy admirals as well as other senior naval officers have been implicated in a pay-off scam with “Fat Albert” involving graft and illicit sex. What is the problem with the moral compass, if there is any, of our senior officers?
For the past thirty years, American taxpayers have been lax in demanding prosecution of our senior military officers for criminal offenses that would have placed most ordinary citizens in the hoosegow. Today, we have twice as many senior officers as we had in WWII and that is part of the problem. Generals/Admirals by nature are far more political panderers then most civilians would imagine. Money, Money, Money in their pockets and that money comes from us the tax payers or illegal activities such as gun running, dope smuggling, human trafficking, organ trafficking etc.
One does not achieve those heights of conspicuousness without a clear predetermined plan of accomplishment and moral trade-offs. Clearly, a rising military star has to be more obsequious to his superiors than to his subordinates. This type of behavior is consistent with the ‘authoritarian personality’ type that has been studied for close to half-a-century.
According to Theodor. W. Adorno, the aforementioned personality type is ‘potentially fascistic’. In simpler terms, this fascistic type of personality usually has a very cynical view of humanity which he/she feels is quite inferior and requires the imposition of power and rigid limits. They accuse their fellow man of many unspecified abuses of societal norms which they in turn practice in troves without any ramifications. In turn, they feel superior to most mortals who have never or could never achieve their supposed exalted position in the military or civilian life.
Alfred Adler postulated that these individuals had a strong desire to ‘have will for power over others’ as a compensation for feelings of inferiority and insignificance. According to this view, the military officers needed to maintain control and prove superiority over others because the world was populated by ‘enemies’. These generals had no need for empathy or feelings for mutual benefit. [ All the above references/quotes are from Wikipedia].
It’s time that some of these generals go to prison. Considering the fact that we have not fought nor won any major wars since WWII, there is no reason to consider our generals/admirals as ‘war heroes’. Rather they are mostly military politicians, who have kowtowed to both their system and that of the civilian autocracy [congress/politicians] to achieve their exalted status.
There is no way that one can condemn all of our military services for the misdeeds of a few members. Yet if the armed services along with their civilian counterparts do not prosecute and jail any of these ‘water walkers’ for their heinous crimes then they will also become the models for future senior officers who feel that they too can cheat the American taxpayer without any serious recourse.
Mike Flynn [DIA], David Petraeus [DCI], and Rear Admiral Bruce Loveless [Navy Director of Intelligence Operations] should all be banned from any public office! Take away their military pensions and redistribute $$ back to the American citizen who paid for the privilege of their initial thuggery.
That will never happen.

New evidence indicates that cell phones are damaging more than just our social lives. Indeed, cell towers may actually be altering the function of your brain by inhibiting your thought process, decreasing your appetite and your ability to sleep and causing irritability. A study recently published by the British Medical Journal and led by professor Enrique A. Navarro concluded that the severity of these types of symptoms was directly correlated with cell tower exposure. The closer a person lives to a cell tower, the more pronounced the symptoms will be – regardless of the demographic.
Cell towers rely on electromagnetic switching signals in order to broadcast and receive data. The human body, most especially the brain, also uses electromagnetic impulses to send and transmit messages along different pathways. This is essential for normal function across the body system. Scientists have long suspected that being subject to even low levels of EMF pollution, or electropollution, could have ill effects on the brain and body. This new study supports past suspicions and adds to the current body of proof that cell towers can be harmful.
