No Wonder Obama Intel Chiefs Panicking – Trump To Declassify “Bucket 5” Russiagate Docs

As Congressional Democrats insist on conducting post-Mueller probes into President Trump and those around him, much of the recent infighting and backpedaling we’ve seen from former Obama intel chiefs is starting to make sense.

Appearing with Fox News‘s Sean Hannity Tuesday night, The Hill‘s John Solomon revealed that according to his sources (and Hannity’s as well), President Trump will begin declassifying ‘Russiagate’ documents in the next 6-7 days.

Among those will be the so-called “Bucket Five” – documents which were originally presented to the Gang of Eight in 2016, which included everything the FBI and DOJ used against Trump campaign aide Carter Page – including the FISA surveillance application and its underlying exculpatory intelligence documents which the FISA court may have never seen.

 

According to John Solomon, is coming in 7-8 days; looks likely after POTUS Japan visit and just before a visit to UK, or between 5/29 and 6/2.

Given all Russiagate roads lead back to London and the political climate in UK, this could get bumpy. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/05/21/declassification-directive-and-current-event-timeline/ 

And as ‘Sundance’ of the Conservative Treehouse notes, the release would presumably include the transcripts from FBI wiretaps of George Papadopoulos, who was listed in the Carter Page FISA. Also noted by CT is that declassification would be on target to occur between Trump’s upcoming state visit to Japan (5/25 – 5/28) and his state visit with the UK (6/3 – 6/5).

Via the Conservative Treehouse

No-one really knows the extent of the current documents and/or information that may be subject to a Trump declassification request.  However, this is the original list as outlined in September 2018, and the agencies who would be involved in the declassification process:

  1. All versions of the Carter Page FISA applications (DOJ) (DoS) (FBI) (ODNI).
  2. All of the Bruce Ohr 302’s filled out by the FBI. (FBI) (ODNI)
  3. All of Bruce Ohr’s emails (FBI) (DOJ) (CIA) (ODNI), and supportive documents and material provided by Bruce Ohr to the FBI. (FBI)
  4. All relevant documents pertaining to the supportive material within the FISA application. (FBI) (DOJ-NSD ) (DoS) (CIA) (DNI) (NSA) (ODNI);
  5. All intelligence documents that were presented to the Gang of Eight in 2016 that pertain to the FISA application used against U.S. person Carter Page; including all exculpatory intelligence documents that may not have been presented to the FISA Court. (CIA) (FBI) (DOJ) (ODNI) (DoS) (NSA)
  6. All unredacted text messages and email content between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok on all devices. (FBI) (DOJ) (DOJ-NSD) (ODNI)
  7. The originating CIA “EC” or two-page electronic communication from former CIA Director John Brennan to FBI Director James Comey that started Operation Crossfire Hurricane in July 2016. (CIA) (FBI) (ODNI)

? President Trump can prove the July 31st, 2016, Crossfire Hurricane counterintelligence operation originated from a scheme within the intelligence apparatus by exposing the preceding CIA operation that created the originating “Electronic Communication” memo. Declassify that two-page “EC” document that Brennan gave to Comey.  [The trail is found within the Weissmann report and the use of Alexander Downer – SEE HERE]

Release and declassify all of the Comey memos that document the investigative steps taken by the FBI as an outcome of the operation coordinated by CIA Director John Brennan in early 2016.  [The trail was memorialized by James Comey – SEE HERE]

? Reveal the November 2015 through April 2016 FISA-702 search query abuse by declassifying the April 2017 court opinion written by FISC Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer. Show the FBI contractors behind the 85% fraudulent search queries. [Crowdstrike? Fusion-GPS? Nellie Ohr? Daniel Richman?]  This was a weaponized surveillance and domestic political spying operation. [The trail was laid down in specific detail by Judge Collyer – SEE HERE]

? Subpoena former DOJ-NSD (National Security Division) head John Carlin, or haul him in front of a grand jury, and get his testimony about why he hid the abuse from the FISA court in October 2016; why the DOJ-NSD rushed the Carter Page application to beat NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers to the FISA court; and why Carlin quit immediately thereafter.

? Prove the Carter Page FISA application (October 2016) was fraudulent and based on deceptions to the FISA Court. Declassify the entire document, and release the transcripts of those who signed the application(s); and/or depose those who have not yet testified. The creation of the Steele Dossier was the cover-up operation. [SEE HERE]

? Release all of the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages without redactions. Let sunlight pour in on the actual conversation(s) that were taking place when Crossfire Hurricane (July ’16) and the FISA Application (Oct ’16) were taking place.  The current redactions were made by the people who weaponized the intelligence system for political surveillance and spy operation.  This is why Page and Strzok texts are redacted!

? Release all of Bruce Ohr 302’s, FBI notes from interviews and debriefing sessions, and other relevant documents associated with the interviews of Bruce Ohr and his internal communications. Including exculpatory evidence that Bruce Ohr may have shared with FBI Agent Joseph Pientka. [And get a deposition from this Pientka fella] Bruce Ohr is the courier, carrying information from those outside to those on the inside.

? Release the August 2nd, 2017, two-page scope memo provided by DAG Rod Rosenstein to special counsel Robert Mueller to advance the fraudulent Trump investigation, and initiate the more purposeful obstruction of justice investigation. Also Release the October 20th, 2017, second scope memo recently discovered.  The Scope Memos are keys to unlocking the underlying spy/surveillance cover-up. [SEE HERE and SEE HERE]

A

sudden turn

for the worse in US-China trade tensions has sent

shock waves

through financial markets over the past two weeks. The tariff escalation by the US and then China was followed by a sharp

depreciation

in the renminbi, Washington’s

blacklisting

of Huawei and news of China selling

US Treasury

bonds, raising concerns about the risks to the global economy.

Washington and Beijing have different versions of what led to the stalemate. The US story was straightforward: China backtracked on its previous commitments and tried to renegotiate the deal. But this narrative lacked detail about what exactly China had tried to renege on.

China’s story has more detail and came straight from the “horse’s mouth”. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, in an interview

immediately after the 11th round of trade talks, revealed three sticking points.

First, there were differences on how to deal with the existing tariffs once a deal is struck. Beijing preferred to have all of them removed, while the US wanted to keep them in place to reinforce Beijing’s compliance with the agreement.

Second, the two sides disagreed on the size of additional purchases from China. It had earlier been reported that the US demanded that China buy an additional US$1.2 trillion of US goods over the next six years, working out to about US$200 billion a year. To put that into context, China’s total annual imports from the US were only US$155 billion per year for the past two years.

Given that many of the goods China wants to buy from the US, such as are banned for export, it is not clear how China could fulfil these obligations without significantly disrupting its existing relations with other trading partners.

Documenting the Persecution: Videos of Torture Victims Smuggled Out of Chinese Prison

May 21, 2019

Warning: This article contains graphic images of a torture victim.

Since the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, astonishing accounts of torture inside Chinese labor camps, detention centers, and jails have been reported, but taking photos or video footage inside these places has never been possible, much less smuggling such material out.

A Falun Gong practitioner named Yu Ming changed that.

He took footage inside the Masanjia labor camp and Benxi Prison, and also managed to smuggle the video out.

In Benxi Prison, Yu documented, through the use of hidden video cameras, the deaths of two practitioners due to torture. This is their story.

Netherlands Probing if Huawei Is Using ‘Secret Back Door’ to Customer Data and Spying for Beijing, Report Says
BY NICK GUTTERIDGE, SPECIAL TO THE EPOCH TIMES



‘Coup Cabal’ Was ‘an International Effort to Take out Trump’

ROBERT KRAYCHIK

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, described the Trump-Russia narrative and Robert Mueller-led operation as parts of an “international effort to take out” President Donald Trump.

He offered his remarks in a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow

Fitton previously described the Trump-Russia “collusion” narrative as “the big lie,” noting its ubiquity across the overlapping political and news media landscapes.

“Yesterday, you had confirmation over in the United Kingdom that that intelligence operation there — the UK’s intelligence apparatus — also knew about the dossier,” said Fitton, “and part of that spying that took place with Stefan Halper also took place in London. The New York Times, at the end of their story, exposing that, disclosed that the UK knew about that spy operation as well.”

Fitton added, “You had this other agency — supposedly a friend of the United States — laundering the Steele dossier that was created as a result of FBI-DNC-Clinton campaign money in consultation with Russian intelligence. It’s pretty incredible stuff, and it shows you that it was an international effort to take out Trump. It wasn’t just based her in the United States.”

LISTEN:

Marlow invited Fitton’s perception of Attorney General William Barr. “[William Barr] doesn’t seem like someone who’s going to be cowed,” assessed Fitton. “I hope he does a serious investigation. Certainly everything he’s said suggests that’s what he wants to do, and he’s seen evidence requiring follow-up by a competent attorney general like himself.”

Widespread political and partisan corruption within the FBI and broader Department of Justice — particularly with respect to spying on and surveillance of Donald Trump and his circle, both as a candidate and president — must be purged, determined Fitton.

“I hope it

’s not just an administrative review, [and] that it’s a criminal

investigation,” stated Fitton. “I know it’s starting off as a review. The other big thing coming down the pike is the inspector general out of the Justice Department. I don’t know what’s going to be in there, but all the signals are suggesting that there will be some strong criticism of the FISA abuses under Barack Obama and, frankly, into the Trump administration by these anti-Trumpers.”

“William Barr] has seen evidence of criminal misconduct,” continued Fitton. “It doesn’t necessarily mean something big will happen. He’s not only fighting … the whole Democrat media complex, the institutions of the FBI, and the DOJ, and frankly, the spy agencies are really going to stand strong against anything serious being done. Look at Christopher Wray, he can’t even use the word ‘spy.’ He’s so compromised in terms of having internalized this deep state approach to reining in the FBI swamp.

Marlow recalled Joe DiGenova’s characterization of former CIA Director John Brennan — now a political commentator on MSNBC — as the “mastermind” of the “conspiracy to frame Donald Trump.”

“I think [John Brennan] is a key ringleader,” concurred Fitton. “This was a cabal … and certainly Brennan was pushing this dossier. He was involved in that infamous Oval Office meeting in Barack Obama’s White House with James Comey, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, et cetera, just before Comey went to attempt — as his FBI people suggested, or were worried about — to blackmail then-president elect Trump with information about the dossier. It looks like that spy operation would not have taken place without FBI help.”

Fitton went on, “An administrative review would be good, but that’s not going to be enough. These folks need to go before grand juries and really face serious investigation. To me, that’s the hallmark of a criminal investigation so that people can have reassurance that something serious is being done.”

Fitton concluded, “I would encourage Barr to unleash the hounds in terms of using the powers of the Justice Department that people are familiar with, in terms of bringing in prosecutors, having FBI agents do interviews; frankly, I’m not sure if the FBI should be involved in this — but have acting federal agents do interviews, having an internal administrative review isn’t going to cut it.”



We know both Pompeo and Bolton are war hawks. They are probably recommending war to Trump at every turn. Only they’re probably calling it ‘action,’ ‘engagement’ or an ‘operation.’
So far, Trump is resisting such counsel. Maybe he wants them around—such men have use as a fear tactic. I hope Trump is using them for psychological reasons because more war is the last thing our country needs due to the resulting blowback.

Who is working to push Bolton out?

Trump considering replacing John Bolton: Report

… from Press TV, Tehran

[ Editor’s Note: It comes as no surprise that Bolton has enemies, not only outside the administration but inside. The man’s ego is as big as a barn, with his persistent “my way or the highway” attitude.

Making a list of who likes him would be a Who’s Who of the War Crowd. The military hates him, as they know he views them as toys to be played on the Bolton board-game of Risk, if anyone remembers that one.

The policy conflicts have been widely apparent with what clearly appears to be poor coordination, if that itself is not part of a chaos game. If Bolton does not think Trump has pushed hard enough, he seems to “correct” that mistake. It’s like they have a Twitter contest going, as to who can scoop who, a childish game.

Initially I though Trump would use Bolton as a Mr. Tough Guy and scapegoat on anything that went bad that Trump wanted to wash off his plate before 2020. There is no one that Trump would not sacrifice to win another term.

Why? It is because he needs the second term to run out the statute of limitations for potential charges he might face after leaving office. Trump is on the spot now to respond to these claims. We won’t have to wait long for his answer… Jim W. Dean]


Bolton is no Washington crossing the Delaware

– First published … May 15, 2019 –

US media reports suggest that President Donald Trump is considering replacing his hawkish National Security Adviser John Bolton over his plans to push the United States towards a military conflict with Iran, Venezuela and North Korea.

Bolton “is headed for the exits, having flown too close to the sun on his regime change efforts for Iran, Venezuela and North Korea,” The National Interest magazine reported Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the matter.

“Hearing that Trump wants him out,” a former senior Trump administration official told the magazine.

There is speculation in Washington “that there’s now daylight between Trump and Bolton,” the report added.

The fighting has also expanded to include US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, officials say. A State Department official and a former White House official both report that Bolton and Pompeo are “fighting all the time.”

A former senior official in the State Department said Pompeo is enthusiastic about isolating Iran, but fearful of an actual war that might engulf much of the Middle East.

“John Bolton is the problem … Trump’s national security adviser is getting dangerous…particularly to the president’s ideals,” Douglas Macgregor, a Bolton rival and would-be successor, writes in Spectator USA.

Trump ran his election campaign on the promise to pull the US military out of Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria — unwinnable post-9/11 wars that have consumed American lives and military budgets.

That partial retreat remains one of Trump’s strongest points in his pitch to be the so-called outsider president. But Bolton is working in exactly the opposite direction.

The United States has been ratcheting up economic and military pressure on Iran, with Trump recently urging Tehran to talk to him. “What I’d like to see with Iran, I’d like to see them call me,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday.

But then he said he would not rule out the possibility of military action in Iran amid escalating tensions before slamming former secretary of state John Kerry for his involvement in the issue.

His remarks came after Bolton said on Sunday that the United States was sending an aircraft carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East in a “clear and unmistakable” message to Iran.

The Pentagon announced on Friday that the US was deploying an amphibious assault ship and a Patriot missile battery to bolster an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers already sent to the Persian Gulf.

SpaceX Will Launch Its First 60 Satellites to Deliver Internet From Space

BY WIRE SERVICE CONTENT Updated: May 19, 2019

SpaceX wants to beam cheap broadband internet all over the planet. It’s gearing up for the first crucial step toward making that a reality.

 

Elon Musk’s rocket company will try to deliver a batch of 60 satellites into low-Earth orbit, the first for a megaconstellation of satellites that SpaceX is calling Starlink. The launch could happen sometime next week.

It was scheduled to take off Wednesday night, but rough winds in the upper atmosphere caused a one-day delay. And SpaceX said in a Thursday tweet that it would wait another week so the company can “update satellite software and triple-check everything again.”

French authorities catch Monsanto running black ops “spy” campaign on European journalists, lawmakers and regulators… “Stasi”-like tactics about to be exposed

Right now, Monsanto is looking a whole lot like the Titanic just after it hit the iceberg. The lights are still on and the music is still playing, but the company’s foundational framework has sustained a devastating and likely fatal blow beneath the surface, and is currently sinking into the abyss – and Bayer, Monsanto’s new owner, appears to see the writing on the wall.

That’s why the Germany-based chemical company recently announced that it’s planning to cooperate with French authorities in pursuing justice against Monsanto executives who engaged in unethical, and possibly illegal, black ops spying and surveillance programs against their corporate enemies in Europe.

In case you missed it, French prosecutors have indicated that they’re planning to aggressively pursue Monsanto, to the maximum extent that the law allows, for its role in creating “hit lists” aimed at journalists, lawmakers, regulators, and others whom the company deemed as a threat to its global chemical conquest.

More than 200 names, it turns out, have thus far been uncovered within these Monsanto hit lists. And Bayer is reportedly contacting all of them to let them know that they were among Monsanto’s many targets.

“It’s safe to say that other countries in Europe were affected by lists … I assume that all EU (European Union) member states could potentially be affected,” stated Matthias Berninger, Bayer’s head of public affairs and sustainability, during a recent press conference.

“There have been a number of cases where – as they would say in football – not the ball was played but the man, or woman, was tackled,” he added.





Article by WN.Com Correspondent Dallas Darling

For some cultures, the most powerful, master emotion is shame and humiliation. And that survival and self-determination is your strength, not your humiliation. Consequently, President Donald Trump will never win his trade war with China until he first understands China’s “Century of Humiliation” and its Belt Road Initiative (BRI). Both of which are not only rooted in China’s rich historical past but, and according to some economists, an even more prosperous future.

Century of Humiliation

China’s Century of Humiliation started in the 19th century, when Britain and France devised an insidious plan to force opium as a currency in exchange for Chinese goods and services.

As China tried to confiscate and destroy the opium, two major wars ensued. China lost both.

In addition to foregoing Hong Kong and more port cities, China was further shamed into paying millions of dollars of war reparations. Reparations that could’ve been spent on public works projects.

Trump’s first mistake was therefore to call his tariff on Chinese trade goods a “national security threat,” even a war. (Britain and France did the same when authorities tried to confiscate and destroy their opium.)This raised the ire of President Xi Jinping and millions of Chinese, evoking a feeling another foreign power was trying to humiliate them. In other words, the geography of emotion is sometimes greater than even the power of place – let alone economics.

Something else that’s greater to China is the memory of how Britain and France’s opium drug trade drove 400 million people into addiction. As hundreds of opium dens spread across China, some were sold into slavery to pay for opium habits. Prosperity, productiveness and Chinese innovations, which were far more superior to Western goods, gave way to rampant corruption, severe economic dislocation and social unrest. It’s something China will never forget.

Neither will China forget those who today, make threats over trade agreements or promise to “retaliate” as Trump just did. The latest being a 25 percent increase on “all” Chinese imports. For China, the problem lies not with them or Chinese goods but American workers and American-made products. It’s not their fault U.S. production is inefficient, or that American goods may be inferior or more expensive. Again, for China humiliation extends to its goods and production.

Decades of Shame

It also extends to memories of the U.S.’s Open Door Policies and Boxer Rebellion. As the U.S., Russia, and Japan entered Britain and France’s need to carve-up China, the U.S.-imposed economic spheres of influence and extraterritorial rights to avert war. China not only lost their sovereign rights over trade and resources, but western-styled courts favored Christians and “the foreign devils.” China’s rulers were practically reduced to puppets, the people to underlings.

Again, Trump’s dishonesty over why trade talks broke down after a mutual agreement had been reached is an affront to China’s integrity. So are the times he’s gone back on his word or lied about how China pays tariffs directly to the U.S. government. It’s U.S. importers who pay tariffs for Chinese goods and pass those costs to U.S. consumers in the form of higher product prices. For leaders who lie and cause mistrust, China thinks of the “foreign devils” who did the same.

They also think back to the Boxer Rebellion, a time when millions of Chinese rose up to expel the Western powers. Having gained a formidable force large enough to march on foreign embassies which now controlled Beijing, they were lulled into a truce. A truce which allowed more time for an international force of 25,000 troops to show up. Western, Russian and Japanese troops laid waste to Beijing while killing and executing thousands of Chinese Boxers.

Meanwhile, the long-nurtured values such as respect for rank and acceptance of hierarchy – that is, old over young, male over female, scholar-official over commoner – were no longer emphasized in education or government. Neither was Confucianism, Buddhism, Daoism or the Mandate of Heaven and Middle Kingdom – China’s concept of its own superiority. This went for the civil service exam system. It was as if Year Zero had started, and China had become like “scattered grains.”

China’s Arduous Rise to Ascendancy

The 1919 May Fourth and Self-Strengthening Movements consequently provided a return to more traditional Chinese beliefs and customs. So did Mao Zedong’s Communist and Great Leap Forward, and his Cultural Revolution – even if they backfired. Above all, the Western powers were expelled as a more centralized China took shape. One that could finally be predicted based on its many patterns and ideals from its past. It included precedents for critical change.

Not surprisingly, Trump’s repeated threats of a trade war with China involves its many allies which have been forged through the BRI. Indeed, there are now more than some 60 nations connected infrastructurally with China through a complex maze of superhighways and high-speed rails, electric grids and pipelines, mining industries and manufacturing centers and port cities and airports. It includes investments and goods and resources which flow both ways.

China’s allies also know Trump’s threats are another sign of a waning empire, an overreaction to its many insecurities. They entail political and economic forces that are corrupt and deteriorating as well. This may then be the century America falls behind, especially with regards to innovations, technological, productivity, organizational skills and funding education to improve critical thinking skills. Either way, BRI is China’s answer to America’s nation-building through war.

And then there’s America’s opioid-drug crisis and corporate/state-imposed corruption. Both kill tens of thousands of people each year and costs businesses and consumers billions of dollars. As for China’s espionage or the piracy of patents, not to mention human rights violations, China has only to point to a history of U.S. imperialism and economic exploitation in other countries. This includes backing a Chinese Civil War which cost the lives of millions of people.

America’s Turn?

As more productivity stagnates and American know-how declines, the U.S. may find itself on the losing end of a trade war with China. Indeed, China has already struck back costing famers billions of dollars in losses. In the meantime, China is dumping U.S. treasury bonds while strengthening their own and the yuan. And then there’s the rising cost of inflation, an increase among some businesses which depend on Chinese made goods and resources, and drop in stocks.

Whatever the future holds for China, it will never be humiliated again. Nor will it ever allow signs such as, “No dogs and Chinese allowed;” or letters like the one from a lieutenant in China’s First Opium Drug War. It read: “It seems quite useless to kill the Chinese. It is like killing flies in July.” Just as its humiliation has forced it to look inward, and will continue to do so, it’s 9,000-mile-long coast will force it to look outward, specifically to Taiwan and the South China Sea.

Perhaps Thomas Stevens, the first person to circle the globe on a bicycle, said it best. He wrote: “The history of foreign diplomacy with China is largely a history of attempted explanations of matters which have been deliberately misunderstood.” Warning, “One needs more discretion than military valor in dealing with China,” he then cautioned against humiliating a waking giant. This may be something Trump may want to consider when dealing with China.

The fighting has also expanded to include US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, officials say. A State Department official and a former White House official both report that Bolton and Pompeo are “fighting all the time.”

A former senior official in the State Department said Pompeo is enthusiastic about isolating Iran, but fearful of an actual war that might engulf much of the Middle East.

“John Bolton is the problem … Trump’s national security adviser is getting dangerous…particularly to the president’s ideals,” Douglas Macgregor, a Bolton rival and would-be successor, writes in Spectator USA.

Trump ran his election campaign on the promise to pull the US military out of Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria — unwinnable post-9/11 wars that have consumed American lives and military budgets.

That partial retreat remains one of Trump’s strongest points in his pitch to be the so-called outsider president. But Bolton is working in exactly the opposite direction.

The United States has been ratcheting up economic and military pressure on Iran, with Trump recently urging Tehran to talk to him. “What I’d like to see with Iran, I’d like to see them call me,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday.

But then he said he would not rule out the possibility of military action in Iran amid escalating tensions before slamming former secretary of state John Kerry for his involvement in the issue.

His remarks came after Bolton said on Sunday that the United States was sending an aircraft carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East in a “clear and unmistakable” message to Iran.

The Pentagon announced on Friday that the US was deploying an amphibious assault ship and a Patriot missile battery to bolster an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers already sent to the Persian Gulf.

  WarZone  Trump getting misinformation about Iran from fanatical Zionists

 

US President Donald Trump is receiving misinformation about Iran from fanatical Zionists, who want a new military conflict in the Middle East, says a commentator.

President Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday that he would not rule out the possibility of a military action against Iran.

Author and Middle East expert Kevin Barrett told Press TV on Friday that the US president listens to anti-Iran claims made by some pro-Zionist elements.

“Trump is owned by” some elements like Jared Kushner, his senior adviser and son-in-law, and “they have his ear,” Barrett said.

There is “the extremist fanatical terror-loving Zionist, the most extreme radical fringe in Israel and Trump is getting his misinformation from those people,” he said.

“So, there is a problem. Trump is surrounded by very dangerous people who would like nothing better than a big Middle East war,” the author added.

Barrett, however, said the possibility of a war between the United States and Iran is low.

US officials, he said, “love to say all options are on the table” but “all of the experts who have run simulations of a war between the US and Iran say that if we create great suffering in Iran, the US would lose strategically.”



Unpublished OPCW Report’ Implies ‘Chemical Attack’ in Syria’s Douma Was Staged

The Syrian Foreign Ministry has slammed a report by the OPCW on the alleged chemical attack in the city of Douma on 7 April 2018 as containing distorted facts and being prepared by biased experts who failed to take into account the possession of chemical weapons by terrorists.

The Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media has obtained what they say is an unpublished report by the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission on the alleged chemical attack in Syria’s Douma on 7 April 2018, indicating that the entire incident was staged.

April was another record month for illegal immigration

The problem with waiting months to act decisively at the border is that we become accustomed to the new normal of record border numbers.

According to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), April set yet another record, with a total of 109,000 apprehensions at the southwest border. Unless the administration harnesses this news and calls for a complete shutoff of immigration processing at the border, it’s unlikely that the numbers will fall significantly. The partial measures being pursued currently might have worked a year ago when we warned about the tsunami, but not now that we are squarely in the storm.

Here are the key takeaways from the April CBP border report:

  • In total, 109,144 individuals were apprehended at the border – 98,977 between points of entry and 10,167 at points of entry. This is the highest number in 12 years, it is very likely the highest number of unique individuals of all time, given that many in the past were the same individuals deported multiple times within the same week, while almost all of these are first-timers.
  • The 58,474 individuals in family units set another record, but an increasing number of people are also coming as single adults, 31,606. The overwhelming number of single adults are from Mexico, while most of the family units and unaccompanied teens are from Central America.
  • The increases over the previous month seemed to be from the Rio Grande Valley (RGV), El Paso, and Yuma sectors, the three busiest corridors in absolute numbers. Overall, for this fiscal year, every sector has seen a massive increase in family units.
  • Guatemala still leads the pack for the most migrants coming in all categories, followed by Honduras, with a sharp drop-off for Salvadorans. Overall, 301,900 Guatemalans were apprehended at and between points of entry since the beginning of fiscal year 2018. In other words, in just 19 months, 1.7 percent of Guatemala’s population came to our border, and that is on top of the 815,000 Guatemalan nationals who already lived here, most of them illegally. A recent poll showed that a third of Guatemalans would like to immigrate to the U.S. A total of 224,078 Hondurans have come since FY 2018, 2.4 percent of the population. That is on top of the 623,000 already here. This means that the size of these countries’ populations in America equal roughly 6.6 percent and 9.2 percent of their respective populations in Guatemala and Honduras. “Only” 79,000 have come from El Salvador over the past 19 months, but because they dominated the Central American migration in previous years, we already had 1.4 million Salvadorans in this country as of last year, representing roughly 22 percent of their entire homeland population!







Citizen’s United: Docs Reveal British Spy’s Motive To Release Dossier Dirt On Trump Before 2016 Election

A recently discovered memo written by former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec reveals stunning information that FBI informant and former British spy Christopher Steele planned to release the unverified information in his dossier before Election Day. He also admitted to Kavalec in a meeting that his research was political, according to the memo first obtained by Citizen’s United through a Freedom of Information Act request. Steele was paid by the embattled research firm Fusion GPS through the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

It is the first piece of solid communication that reveals Steele’s true intentions for the dossier. The Hill’s John Solomon first published the report of the memo on Tuesday, saying the memo has been turned over to the Department of Justice by a congressional official. The official is concerned that it is information that has not been seen by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz or other DOJ investigators.

In Kavalec’s written account of her Oct. 11, 2016, meeting with Steele that he “is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8,” the date of the 2016 election. According to Solomon, Kavalec summarized her meeting with Steele and his coworker Tatyana Duran. Duran worked at Steele’s Orbis Security firm.

Citizen’s United obtained the memos last week ago through open-records litigation, according to David Bossie, head of Citizens United. Bossie, who is also an information Trump advisor, noted that his conservative group Citizen’s United has been a leader on using FOIA litigation to uncover a treasure trove of documents from Hillary Clinton’s emails, to Benghazi and now what appears to be the framing of Trump by a former British intelligence officer.

“We obtained them through our ongoing FOIA litigation that has been going on for years,” Bossie told SaraACarter.com. This is the latest and quite possibly the most damaging documents yet to expose the Obama Administration and that is why they need to investigate the investigators.”

Sources told Solomon that there are “handwritten notes from the meeting, with information about Steele’s political ties, that have not been given to Congress.”

“There’s a connection to Hillary Clinton in the notes,” said one source who spoke to Solomon.

However, the FBI only allowed the State Department to release four sentences of Kavalec’s memo of the meeting. Those sentences reveal that she also sent emails. Solomon noted that three other sentences released in her memo show that U.S. officials would have suspected Steele’s political motives for his dossier. “Orbis undertook the investigation into the Russia/Trump connection at the behest of an institution he declined to identify that had been hacked,” Kavalec wrote, according to Solomon.

Bossie said his team was “surprised to the level of redactions in the documents and we’re working on trying to resolve that through our lawyers.”

REBECCA MANSOUR

Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was paid for his work as a board member a Ukrainian oligarch-owned energy company while his father was vice president, the New York Times confirms.

According to the Times, Hunter Biden was paid “as much as $50,000 per month in some months” as a board member of Burisma Holdings, a natural gas firm owned by a member of the Ukrainian oligarchy.

Vice President Biden was heavily involved in mediating U.S. policy towards the Ukraine. When a Ukrainian prosecutor launched a corruption investigation into the energy company Hunter Biden was board member of, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees to the country if the Ukrainian government did not fire the prosecutor. As John Solomon of The Hill reported, Biden’s threat would have thrown the former Soviet republic into insolvency at a time when Ukraine was fending off threats from Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

In Brexit Britain, Theresa May could never have afforded to ban Huawei

The Huawei leaks have split the Conservative cabinet – but banning the firm would have pushed back the launch of 5G in the UK by several years.

Over the last year, the US government has conducted a ferocious lobbying campaign against Huawei, the Chinese tech giant seeking to rebuild the world’s telecoms networks. American officials claim the company is an arm of the Chinese state and could be forced to spy on citizens and businesses at Beijing’s behest (allegations Huawei firmly denies).

The US has even threatened to withhold intelligence from states which buy the company’s telecoms equipment. But on 24 April, as representatives of the “Five Eyes” intelligence alliance prepared to meet publicly on British soil for the first time, the campaign began to unravel.

A member of the National Security Council leaked Theresa May’s decision to defy American pressure to ban Huawei equipment to the Telegraph and Guardian. The Prime Minister has chosen to limit the company’s work to non-core parts of the 5G network. The leaks, which could prompt an inquiry, demonstrate just how political the issue has become. May’s decision has reportedly split the cabinet; some of her most senior ministers have pushed for an outright ban. In reality, she could never have afforded to do so.



Russia’s Armed Force’s Journal Discloses Military Parapsychological Capacity

Sometimes you realise it’s time to pack up and go home. Why attempt to counter pro-Kremlin disinformation and malign influence when Russia now openly declares a capacity to hack computers and eavesdrop on secure telecommunications through mind control? Colonel Nikolay Poroskov explains it all in the February issue (we also thought it was the 1 April issue, but no) of the Russian Armed Forces monthly journal for research and discussion, the Armeyskiy Sbornik. The Soviet military developed the concept of “metacontact” in the mid 80’s and it has since been successfully used in combat in Chechnya:

Anyone mastering the means of metacontact can, for instance, perform a non-verbal interrogation. He sees right through the Prisoner of War: what kind of person he is, what his strong and weak points are, would he be susceptible for recruiting. The accuracy of such an interrogation is 100 percent. It is impossible to hide.

Colonel Poroskov describes how the method was fine-tuned on dolphins, which eventually yielded to the willpower of the Russian soldiers. But the ambitions went further than taming glorified fish:

But the technology proved applicable also on humans, and even on machines. With the willpower it is possible to, for instance, hack computer programmes, burn crystals in generators, eavesdrop or jam radio signals or telecommunications.

Experiments demonstrated successfully the possibility to read documents in locked safes, even in foreign languages we don’t know. It was possible to identify members of terror groups and discover whoever was considering joining a terrorist organisation.

So here we are, facing a Russia that can read minds and hack, for instance, elections, using super-secret parapsychic superpowers? Psycho-Warriors of the Kremlin! Is this what the Kremlin aide Vladislav Surkov was referring to, when he wrote that “Russia is interfering with the West’s minds”? Be afraid, be very afraid!

Well, Col. Poroskov’s article is a laughing stock in Russia at the moment. The article was published in February without making much noise. Only in early April – not 1st April, though – did the RBC news site publish excerpts, forcing Russia officially to declare the good Colonel’s essay as “fake science”, or using the scientific terms of the spokesperson of the Russian Academy of Science: “Chepukha” – a word, according to the dictionaries, equivalent to the English flap-doodle, codswallop, baloney, fiddlesticks, nonsense.

Russia’s Armed Forces have initiated an investigation into Poroskov’s article. Even the Armeyskij Sbornik editor-in-chief disavows the article and emphasises that this is not official policy of the Russian Armed Forces. Well, that didn’t stop him from letting the good Colonel continue ranting about Wars of the Future in an ambitious and poorly researched series. The quotes above are all from the second part of a series of articles. In the third, we learn about US capacity to manipulate the climate. The first part of the series is devoted to non-lethal weapons. Col. Poroskov emphasises that the US since the 50’s has performed experiments with meteorological weapons with disastrous results:

The informed specialists have no other explanation for the natural disasters in Russia, China, and Western Europe, Haiti; draughts, wild-fires, earthquakes, floods, magnetospheric storms, lightning, geophysical events…

We can see that Col. Poroskov feeds almost all possible conspiracy theories: Transnational corporations are using vaccines to reduce the population; plague was spread through the poisoning of wells; the US is experimenting with microwave weapons in the ionosphere, capable of producing lethal plasmoid lightning that can strike anywhere on the planet.

Suddenly it’s not fun any more. Children are dying because of anti-vaccine disinformationChemtrail conspiracy is not a laughing matter. The myth about plague spreading through poisoned wells has deep anti-Semitic roots.

Colonel Poroskov’s series of articles will continue – at least, the latest series contains a promise of continuation. And Colonel, Sir, we’re really looking forward to number four next month. We hope you can elaborate a little more about how Russia is developing Witch Craft for defensive capacity!



World’s first privately-funded spacecraft attempts moon landing, ends in historic crash

SpaceIL is the first private company to ever attempt landing a spacecraft on the moon. And when they were just a few minutes away from success, they also became the first private company to crash into the moon. The spacecraft, named “Beresheet,” suffered a disastrous engine shut-down, mere moments before the Moon landing could be completed. Despite the team’s best efforts, Beresheet reportedly crashed into the lunar surface.

The team of experts based in Israel says that even though this initial mission may be a failure, nothing will stop them from trying again. While the landing may have been a failure, SpaceIL still put the first privately funded spacecraft into lunar orbit. The historic effort also marks Israel as the seventh country to enter the Moon’s orbit via spacecraft.

Release of Mueller Report Shows The Epoch Times’ Reporting Was Correct

Jasper Fakkert
EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, U.S. EDITIONS
April 18, 2019

The release of the long-awaited report by special counsel Robert Mueller confirms reporting by The Epoch Times over the past two years.

While other media promoted the false narrative that Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 elections, we stuck to the facts.

As early as May 2017, just over a week after the appointment of special counsel Mueller, we pointed out that the there was no known evidence of collusion in an article headlined: “Despite Allegations, No Evidence of Trump—Russia Collusion Found.” The article was based on public statements by officials, including those involved in the joint intelligence agency investigation, which was overseen by the office of the Director of National Intelligence, into Russian interference.

Over the past two years, we have closely followed all developments and found that in the course of the investigations no evidence of collusion had been presented.

Geoengineering releases high concentrations of TOXIC aluminum into the air, causing an increase in neurodegenerative diseases

Geoengineering, also known as climate engineering, is a controversial subject. Though many people dismiss it as nothing more than a conspiracy theory, there are many others who vehemently insist that governmental and other organizations are actively involved in attempts to manipulate the weather. Most of these experiments, they say, are directed at reversing the effects of so-called climate change, while some agencies have more sinister reasons for wanting to manipulate the weather, including a desire to control the ionosphere – and therefore radio communications – for military purposes.

In recent years, evidence has been mounting that perhaps geoengineering should not quickly be dismissed as conspiracy theory. Reports have emerged suggesting that increased amounts of aluminum are being detected in precipitation. If this heavy metal is present in the rain, it is certainly present in large quantities in the air. This ties in perfectly with the theory of geoengineering, which claims that aluminum is sprayed into the atmosphere as a way to control the rain.

Perhaps the most damning evidence supporting the geoengineering theory, however, is the massive increase in neurodegenerative diseases in recent years. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the number of people dying from Alzheimer’s has increased by a staggering 145 percent since 2000. This is significant, because scientists have been warning for some time that the use of aluminum for geoengineering purposes would cause a spike in the number of people with neurodegenerative diseases. (Related: U.S. fake news media claims geoengineering is a “conspiracy theory” while China and Russia work together to “modify the atmosphere”.)

The scientists have been warning about this for years

As reported by Waking Times (WT), declassified government documents dating back to the 1970s confirm that federally-funded scientific programs have been actively involved in studies dedicated to manipulation of the weather. And these programs have likely been intensified as global warming hysteria has increased. (Related: Nanosized aluminum being sprayed in the atmosphere, causing degenerative disease, says neurosurgeon.)

This confirms what scientists have been saying for years. Waking Times reported:

In 2014, a CBS news crew interviewed physicist Dr. Michio Kaku. In the interview, Dr. Kaku revealed that scientists were conducting large-scale weather modification experiments that involved shooting lasers and nanoparticles into the sky.

Statements like this one have been backed up by scientific evidence, as further noted by WT:

[A] ground-breaking scientific study led by Dr. Marvin Herndon, a nuclear chemist and geochemist, found “evidence of geoengineering activity that has occurred for at least 15 years… the geoengineering activity via tanker-jet aircraft emplaces a non-natural, toxic substance in the Earth’s atmosphere” which results in the release of large amounts of aluminum nanoparticles.

Why atmospheric aluminum exposure is more dangerous

While it is true that humans are exposed to large amounts of aluminum on a daily basis via the food we eat, the water we drink and the medications we take, as explained by WT, the body only absorbs about 0.3 percent of this aluminum because of protection afforded by the intestinal tract.

Atmospheric aluminum, however, is far more dangerous:

When inhaled, atmospheric aluminum bypasses the lungs and has direct access to the bloodstream. From here it can circulate through the body and cause a significant amount of harm. This includes lung cancer, kidney damage, bone deformities, seizures, and anxiety.

There is also a great deal of research that reveals aluminum exposure can increase the risk of several brain diseases including Alzheimer’s. This is why Dr. Herndon proposed that geoengineering is responsible for the widespread rise of neurological disease around the world.

That 145 percent increase in Alzheimer’s deaths takes on new and disturbing meaning when viewed in harmony with this type of information. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to avoid atmospheric aluminum exposure, emphasizing the importance of trying to detoxify from heavy metals on a regular basis.

The purge of conservatives from social media continues as Instagram bans popular political cartoonist Ben Garrison for “offensive” content

If you are a news junkie, then chances are good you’re also a fan of political cartoons, the point of which is to use exaggerated artwork and other techniques to make a strong statement about an issue of the day.

But even non-news junkies can understand and appreciate statements behind political cartoons. A good cartoonist can use any number of techniques — style, artwork, messaging, text — to make his or her point.

Ben Garrison is one of the best in the business. A conservative who has a large following because he is so good and because he’s been doing his thing for years, he’s now been caught up in the purge of right-leaning, pro-Trump voices by the Left-wing speech Nazis who own the most popular social media platforms.

As noted by The Gateway Pundit, first Garrison had one of his posts deleted but then Instagram deplatformed him entirely.

“Your account has been disabled for violating our terms,” said a message Garrison received from the platform, along with a link to Instagram’s “legal terms” and polices regarding the censorship of content. 

The message he received regarding his deleted post said, in part:

We want to keep Instagram a safe place for everyone, and we ask that you treat other members of the community with respect. Even if you didn’t mean to offend, remember that we created these guidelines to support and protect our community on Instagram…

The “offending” post was labeled as… “hate speech.” What is else new? That’s what the easily triggered Left calls all viewpoints it disagrees with, ‘hate speech.’
