Ken Starr Warns Senate: We Are Living in ‘The Age of Impeachment’
Mick Mulvaney’s Lawyer Denies Ukraine Claims Reported in John Bolton’s Book
Updated: January 27, 2020
A lawyer for White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney pushed back against reports that he was involved in discussions about holding hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Ukraine in exchange for investigations.
“John Bolton never informed Mick Mulvaney of any concerns surrounding Bolton’s purported August conversation with the president,” his lawyer, Bob Driscoll, said in a statement (pdf) on Monday. “Nor did Mr. Mulvaney ever have a conversation with the president or anyone else indicating that Ukrainian military aid was withheld in exchange for a Ukrainian investigation of Burisma, the Bidens, or the 2016 election.”
The statement remarked that the “latest story from the New York Times, coordinated with a book launch, has more to do with publicity than the truth.”
“Furthermore, Mr. Mulvaney has no recollection of any conversation with Mr. [Rudy] Giuliani resembling that reportedly described in Mr. Bolton’s manuscript, as it was Mr. Mulvaney’s practice to excuse himself from conversations between the President and his personal counsel to preserve any attorney-client privilege,” according to his statement.
The New York Times reported on a leaked excerpt from Bolton’s upcoming book, where it claimed Mulvaney was present when Trump spoke with Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, about former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who was fired last year. The NY Times did not include any excerpts from the book, which was apparently leaked to the press.
But the news report has increased pressure on senators to call witnesses in the impeachment trial of Trump, as Bolton has indicated that he would be willing to testify. On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) again called on Bolton, Mulvaney, and other White House officials to testify.
Trump, on Twitter, wrote that he did not speak to Bolton about withholding aid to Ukraine and suggested the timing of the NY Times report was suspicious.
“I NEVER told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens. In fact, he never complained about this at the time of his very public termination. If John Bolton said this, it was only to sell a book,” wrote Trump. He added: “Transcripts of my calls with President Zelensky are all the proof that is needed, in addition to the fact that President Zelensky & the Foreign Minister of Ukraine said there was no pressure and no problems.”
Several Republican senators, meanwhile, have told media outlets that they are willing to vote to compel testimony following the NY Times report on Bolton’s book.

How the Vaccine Deep State Unleashed a “KILL SWITCH” Against Natural News Using Corrupt California Courts
(Natural News) If you’ve been following Natural News over the last few days, you know how we’ve been subjected to a malicious — and, it turns out, highly illegal — attack that’s now being known as the “internet kill switch.”
Thanks to the criminal actions of a corrupt federal court located in California, Natural News was targeted with a “TRO” – Temporary Restraining Order – that was issued in secret, sealed by the secret court, and was put into effect with no notice to us, and no right to any hearing as required under federal statues.
We have multiple attorneys on retainer who have responded in absolute astonishment at what this secret court tried to pull off. One attorney told us we should file a criminal complaint with the U.S. Dept. of Justice (which we are in the process of doing).
Another attorney said they had never seen anything this corrupt in over 30 years of practicing law.

Virginia State Senator Issues Warning Hours before Monday’s 2A Rally: “We Are Being Set Up”
Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase
Democrat Governor Blackface Northam is putting the squeeze on Virginia gun owners before Monday’s Second Amendment protest.
The map of the protest grounds was released and shows only one entrance for the thousands of Virginia protesters expected at the rally.
Via Erick Hayden.
The group will be fenced in.
And the governor is ordering the 2A protesters to leave their guns at home — in an Open Carry State!
On Friday State Senator Amanda Chase issued a warning to those attending the Monday rally.
“We are being set up!”
Senator Chase wrote this on her Facebook page.
I want you to be aware of how we are being set up.
Does the Patriot Act ring a bell?
Does the National Defense Authorization Act ring a bell?
If people show up wearing any kind of uniform, patch or other symbol on their clothing signifying they belong to a militia and something goes wrong, you could/will be held as a domestic terrorist.
If anyone steps out of line, all it takes is one person, it may even be a government plant….if that plant does anything to disrupt the rally, you could/will be arrested as a domestic terrorist.
The Governor, using the media has already set the stage for this to happen.
He has already laid the groundwork to make the entire movement look like insurrection.
It will be used to put the rest of the nation on notice of what will happen to you, if you resist.
They have used the Southern Poverty Law Center over the last 15 years to lay the groundwork.
They have labeled us as potential domestic terrorist for a long time now.
Anyone who has ever related to the 3%er’s, a militia, or just belonged to any Patriot group…the groundwork has been laid to brand you as a domestic terrorist.
Western Journal has more on the warning:
A Virginia state senator has sounded a warning bell three days before a massive rally is set to coalesce in the commonwealth’s capital.
Conservative Sen. Amanda Chase of District 11 took to Facebook on Friday with a warning for every patriot who plans to attend the pro-Second Amendment rally Monday in Richmond.
Her warning came the same week that Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam issued an executive order temporarily banning firearms in the Capitol Square.
“Sadly, I am posting this, knowing that the Governor of Virginia has declared a State of Emergency in our state,” Chase wrote. “I want you to be aware of how we are being set up.”
“Does the Patriot Act ring a bell? Does the National Defense Authorization Act ring a bell?”

Trump: Assassinated Iranian General ‘Should Have Been Taken Out Many Years Ago’
The Iranian general killed by the United States should have been killed years ago, President Donald Trump said in his first comments about the strike.
The United States took out Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force, near Baghdad International Airport early on Jan. 3 local time.
“General Qassem Soleimani has killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period of time, and was plotting to kill many more…but got caught! He was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself,” Trump said in Twitter posts Friday morning.
“While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago!”
Trump initially posted a picture of an American flag before adding a short statement, claiming, “Iran never won a war, but never lost a negotiation!”

CIA using hospitals to harvest organs for trafficking, claims Palestinian Authority
12/30/2019 / By Ethan Huff
Is there a new Nazi Holocaust-type human experimentation operation forming in the Middle East? The Palestinian Authority (PA) claims so, having recently come out publicly to warn that human organ traffickers from the United States are now invading the West Bank under the guise of providing “humanitarian aid.”
According to the PA Ministry of Health, at least one private American organization has already set up shop in the Gaza Strip with the construction of a new “hospital” that supposedly exists help sick Palestinian people. But in reality, this “hospital” exists solely to “traffick” in human organs and conduct “experiments” on Palestinian patients, the government claims.
A column recently published in the official PA news source Al-Hayat Al-Jadida explains that this so-called “hospital” is actually being run by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), a well-known deep state entity that’s been experimenting on humans for decades. The PA says that this CIA hospital exists “to carry out experiments on the sick Palestinians” and “to be a partner in trafficking in human organs.”
“The American administration and the CIA, which are actually supervising the hospital and its staff, transferred it to [the Gaza Strip] to serve the U.S. as an early warning, monitoring, and espionage station where it was established,” writes columnist Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul about this sinister development taking place in so-called “occupied” land that Zionists have claimed as their own….Read here….
After a flood wiped out Bexy Guerrero Salmiento’s home in 2013, her husband disappeared. Just days earlier, Manuel, Bexy and their five children had fled the wreckage of their washed-out home in Manta, a port city of 200,000 in Ecuador, to seek shelter with relatives. Then Manuel left on a fishing trip to earn money to rebuild their home. He never came back.
For months, Bexy searched frantically for clues to Manuel’s disappearance. Perhaps his small boat had sunk in the rough seas. Perhaps he had fallen prey to the pirates who prowl the water stealing boat motors, leaving fishermen stranded miles from shore. Neighbors advised Bexy to move on. Her husband was surely dead.
Then, eight months after Manuel had gone missing, Bexy’s phone rang.
“Mi amor, perdoname [My love, I’m sorry],” said a man. Through the static, Bexy barely recognized her husband’s voice. Her heart stopped.
“You won’t believe this,” Manuel said. “But I’m in the United States. In prison.”
Before the call dropped, Bexy learned the hazardous details of Manuel’s journey. Desperate to find money to rebuild their home, he had agreed to transport cocaine to the US in his boat. Colombian drug smugglers had promised him $10,000 for the two-week trip.
Manuel had sailed to Colombia with two other men to pick up the cargo before heading out to sea. But the US Coast Guard, which patrols the Pacific coasts of Central and South America, intercepted his boat off the coast of Guatemala and captured the men.
For four months, Manuel was held onboard the Coast Guard ship as it crawled slowly to the United States, picking up human cargo as it went.
During the day, through scorching sun and pounding rain, the detainees were chained on deck, fed little and made to defecate in buckets. At night, they were shackled below deck, tossed about in the belly of the boat. By the time the ship made land in Florida, Manuel had lost all sense of time.
In Florida, federal prosecutors charged Manuel and his co-defendants with attempting to smuggle cocaine into the United States. They sentenced him to 14 years in prison…read more here
TRUMP WAS RIGHT! In 2018 President Called on FISA Judge Collyer to Call in Comey, Yates, McCabe and Rosenstein and Press Criminal Charges
Earlier this month the presiding judge of the top-secret FISA court, Rosemary Collyer rebuked the Obama FBI for serious abuses in its efforts to obtain warrants to spy on the Trump campaign in 2016
But Collyer was warned in 2018 about the fraudulent FISA applications by Rep. Devin Nunes.
In fact there was evidence back in May that the top Executives in Obama’s FBI all knew that there were multiple copies of the Steele dossier and yet they signed multiple FISA warrant applications to spy on President Trump anyways.
In fact, President Trump was aware of the Obama deep state scam on the FISA Court back in 2018.
Trump tweeted out FOX News legal expert Gregg Jarrett’s comments from his Hannity appearance.
Jarrett said the FISA judge should call in DOJ and FBI operatives behind the FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and the Trump administration and press criminal charges.
President Trump agreed.
President Trump: “Ohr told the FBI it (the Fake Dossier) wasn’t true, it was a lie and the FBI was determined to use it anyway to damage Trump and to perpetrate a fraud on the court to spy on the Trump campaign. This is a fraud on the court. The Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court is in charge of the FISA court. He should direct the Presiding Judge, Rosemary Collier, to hold a hearing, haul all of these people from the DOJ & FBI in there, & if she finds there were crimes committed, and there were, there should be a criminal referral by her.…” @GreggJarrett
Top FISA Court Judge Condemns FBI for Providing ‘False Information’ to Court, Demands Prompt Government Response
Updated: December 22, 2019
Less than a week after Department of Justice Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz released his investigation detailing FBI misconduct in obtaining a FISA spy warrant on a Trump 2016 presidential campaign aide, the presiding judge of the FISA Court, Rosemary Collyer, issued a Four-Page Response Order on Dec. 17, 2019.
This unprecedented order by the FISA court condemned—and verified—ongoing wrongdoing by the FBI in the entire approach to the FISA process. Judge Collyer’s order also highlighted just how serious these breaches of conduct actually were, and the potential fallout that could result from the FBI’s actions.
Collyer noted that the FBI’s actions were so egregious that their behavior “calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable.”
In the order, Collyer, who signed the original FISA application on Carter Page, said that the FBI “provided false information” and “withheld material information” from the Justice Department’s National Security Division (NSD) and in doing so “equally mislead” the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). Worth noting is that Collyer highlights the fact that the FISC received two versions of the Inspector General’s report—the public version and the classified version.
Prosecutors have told a judge that missing security footage from outside deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s New York City prison cell has been located, CNBC reported Friday.
Prosecutors said the video had been “preserved” by Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) at a prior request from attorneys for Epstein’s previous cellmate, according to the news outlet. The cellmate, accused killer and former police officer Nicholas Tartaglione, claims he helped save Epstein’s life after the disgraced financier attempted suicide on July 23.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York said in a Thursday court filing that prosecutors “confirmed with MCC [jail] staff that the Video was preserved by MCC staff upon defense counsel’s request in July 2019.”
“The Government is in the process of obtaining a copy of the Video from the MCC. Once the Government obtains a copy of the Video, the Government intends to make it available for defense counsel’s review at the United States Attorney’s Office,” the prosecutors added.
Earlier this week, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Swergold told a White Plains District Court that the footage had gone missing.
“It is on the surface troubling,” said Bruce Barket, an attorney for Tartaglione, at the time.
The development was first reported by the New York Daily News.
Epstein hung himself in a second cell on August 10 while awaiting trial for child sex trafficking charges. In November, two Bureau of Prisons guards were charged with conspiracy and filing false records over their actions the evening the once high-flying investor died.
“The [guards] had a duty to ensure the safety and security of federal inmates in their care,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said. “Instead, they repeatedly failed to conduct mandated checks on inmates, and lied on official forms to hide their dereliction.”
Epstein’s cell was just 15 feet from the guards’ desks, the indictment said. Prosecutors said they filed the false paperwork the afternoon of August 9, a few hours before security cameras showed Epstein escorted to his cell. Tova Noel and Michael Thomas filed another false count a short time later, the charges say, and Epstein was found dead early the next morning.
According to the 20-page indictment, Noel walked past Epstein’s cell a final time at 10:30 p.m., before the guards filed three more false headcounts. Guards are supposed to perform headcounts every 30 minutes………
The Hidden Military Use of 5G Technology
The operation organised by the “Five Eyes” against Huawei aims exclusively to ensure that 5G technology in the West will not be controlled by a Chinese company. As a Pentagon report attests, this civilian technology is primarily used for military purposes.
VOLTAIRE NETWORK | ROME (ITALY) updated
At the London Summit, NATO’s 29 countries pledged to “guarantee the security of our communications, including 5G”. Why is this fifth generation mobile data transmission technology so important for the Atlantic Alliance?
While previous technologies were finalised to produce ever more advanced smartphones, 5G is designed not only to improve their performance, but mainly to connect digital systems that need huge amounts of data to operate automatically. The most important applications of 5G will be realized not in the civilian field, but in the military field.
The possibilities offered by this new technology are explained in the report Defense Applications of 5G Network Technology, published by the Defense Science Board, a federal committee that provides scientific advice to the Pentagon: “The emerging 5G technology, commercially available, offers the Department of Defense the opportunity to benefit at minor costs from the benefits of this system for its own operational requirements”.
In other words, the 5G commercial network, carried out by private companies, will be used by the US armed forces at a much lower cost than would be necessary if the network were carried out solely for military purposes. Military experts predict that 5G will play a key role in the use of hypersonic weapons: missiles, including those armed with nuclear warheads, that travel at a speed greater than Mach 5 (5 times the speed of sound). To guide them on variable trajectories, by changing course in a fraction of a second to avoid interceptor missiles, it is necessary to collect, develop and transmit huge amounts of data in very fast times. The same is necessary to activate defences in the event of an attack with such weapons: since there is no time to make a decision, the only possibility is to rely on automatic 5G systems.
The new technology will also have a key role in the battle network. Being able to connect millions of transmitter-receiver devices in a limited area at the same time, it will enable the military – departments and individuals – to transmit maps, photos and other information on the current operation to each other in near real time.
Extremely important will also be the G5 for secret services and special forces. It will make possible much more effective control and espionage systems than those of today. It will increase the lethality of killer drones and war robots, giving them the ability to identify, track and strike people based on facial recognition and other characteristics. The 5G network, being a high-tech warfare instrument, will automatically also become the target of cyber attacks and war actions carried out with new generation weapons.
In addition to the United States, this technology is being developed by China and other countries. International 5G litigation is therefore not only commercial. The military implications of 5G are almost completely ignored because even critics of this technology, including various scientists, focus their attention on the harmful effects on health and the environment due to exposure to low frequency electromagnetic fields. This commitment is of the utmost importance, but it must be united with the one against the military use of this technology, indirectly financed by ordinary users. One of the greatest attractions, which will promote the diffusion of 5G smartphones, will be to be able to participate, by paying a subscription fee, in war games of impressive live realism with players from all over the world. In this way, without realizing it, the players will finance the preparation for war, the very real one.
