Anatomy of a Collapse

Posted on August 11, 2010 at 1:19pm 0 Comments

Brian McGrory, Boston Globe columnist, gets it absolutely right today

while writing about Matt Amorello’s continuing fall from grace. The

column is a little too maudlin and finger-pointy for my tastes but the

main theme is dead on target: Massachusetts government is filled with

under-qualified men and women who got their positions by being

Massachusetts Folly Writ Large

Posted on July 13, 2010 at 12:40pm 0 Comments

Recently, my partner at Clean Sweep asked me what I thought about this

idea: Could the whole Obamacare debacle be nothing more than trying to

solve the health care crisis exacerbated by illegal aliens filling up

the emergency rooms? I told him I thought it was an interesting idea,

it had a ring of possibility to it, and that I’d see if I could find

some data reflecting on the issue. No matter which way the data falls,

it’s an interesting question and one worth… Continue

The Buck Stops . . . Somewhere

Posted on May 24, 2010 at 9:55am 2 Comments

Harry Truman was a colorful president, to say the least. He was

definitely the sort of person that tales and legends grow from but this

one, at least, has photographic evidence: a sign boldly stating “The

buck stops here” on one side (“I’m from Missouri” reads the other) sat

prominently on his desk. Right or wrong, and people have been debating

many of his decisions since he made them, Truman was willing to take the

fallout. How often do we see that in a… Continue

Trying something new - Voting for good people

The end result is that an elected official is expected to follow the

party line, regardless of use for the constituency, or else “bad” things

will happen. I don’t know about you, but I like to look at candidates

who roughly follow my way of thinking but also having the knowledge that

he or she will put the needs and desires of his or her district before

anything else. That’s all. It’s so simple that it’s a little too

profound to be followed by modern… Continue

ALERT ALERT

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
