Rosenstein Threatened Intelligence 
Committee Members with Subpoenas
by Dick Morris
Three weeks ago, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes... with subpoenas of their “texts, messages, and phone calls” if the committee continued to expose partisanship, bias and corruption at the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Saying he was “tired of dealing with the Intelligence Committee,” he threatened to use the panoply of his powers as deputy attorney general to get rid of this pestilential nuisance. It is a crime to threaten a member of Congress for exercising a constitutionally protected right; 18 USC 242 provides that: “It is a crime for a government official to use his office to threaten anyone, including a member of Congress, for exercising a constitutionally protected right and other similar abuse of power.”...  https://www.westernjournal.com/dick-morris-rosenstein-threatened-in...

Markets Move Higher Following 
Crash Instigated by Obscure Agency 
by Bob Adelmann
{ thenewamerican.com } ~ With Wall Street regaining its footing following the decline that started last Thursday, commentators in the mainstream media are still searching for the decline's cause... Initially they claimed that it was an unexpected surge in inflation evidenced by the rise in the yield of 10-year U.S. Treasury notes approaching three percent in early September it was closer to two percent. This was followed by the jobs report that announced that wages increased 2.9 percent year-over-year, up from just over two percent previously. Writers at the Wall Street Journal dug deeper: The selloff was caused by — ready? — “volatility sellers, risk-party funds and algorithmic trading.” They then went into mind-numbing detail about how these strategies work and how the crash cost people using in them in excess of $200 billion. Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, told TheStreet.com that maybe it was the Federal Reserve’s unhappiness with The Donald: “Maybe the Fed would be happy to see a bear market that could be blamed on Trump.” Catherine Rampell, opinion writer for Jeff Bezo’s liberal mouthpiece, the Washington Post, asked rhetorically: “What’s going on? And is Trump to blame?” After all, the crash happened just a few days after Trump’s highly regarded State of the Union message where he went on at some length touting the gains people have made on Wall Street thanks to deregulation and tax reform under his administration...   https://www.thenewamerican.com/economy/markets/item/28226-markets-m...

Memo Wars: Democrats’ Leaks Are More 
Proof of Deep State-Media Collusion 
by William F. Jasper 
{ thenewamerican.com } ~ “A top House Democrat is challenging the core conclusion of the memo released by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on Friday... calling the allegation that the Justice Department and FBI withheld key details as they sought a secret surveillance warrant on former Trump adviser Carter Page ‘deliberately misleading and deeply wrong on the law.’” That was how NBC News opened its report on Saturday, February 3, the day after the House Intelligence Committee chairman released the hotly-debated and long-delayed “FISA memo” that alleges serious abuses by the liar-nObama administration’s Department of Justice and FBI in targeting then-candidate Donald Trump and his campaign team. In keeping with a pattern of activity that we’ve seen since the 2016 election campaign, the Democrats were leaking this memo to their allies at NBC at the very same time that they and their allies in the “intelligence community” were harshly denouncing Chairman Nunes and the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee for “recklessly” releasing a four-page memo that had been properly declassified and contained no information that would compromise intelligence sources and methods. “NBC News has exclusively obtained a six-page rebuttal to the Nunes memo from Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, which was to be circulated to all House Democrats on Saturday,” NBC News proudly reported. “Given his senior position, Nadler is one of the small number of lawmakers who has viewed the highly sensitive documents that are the basis of Nunes’ memo.”...   https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/item/28223-memo-wars-democrat...

Sharyl Attkisson Discusses DOJ/FBI Corruption
and Congressional Roles and Responsibilities
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Focusing on the FISA “Title 1” surveillance application, and the use of the “liar-Clinton-Steele Dossier”... is much more important than most media are willing to outline. Attkisson knows how many more relevant implications and discoveries are within that application. The FBI corrupt use of FISA surveillance authority, writ large, is also why Chairman Nunes began with the FISA “Title 1” application; and why Grassley is enhancing the HPSCI investigative memo with more validation and details. The FISA surveillance application against Carter Page, and the combination of the liar-Clinton-Steele Dossier therein, is how all of that gets exposed.  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/02/07/sharyl-attkisson-di...

Rep. Jim Jordan Summarizes FBI Crew 
Shaping liar-Clinton Investigation and 
Starting Trump Investigation
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ There is a deluge of information now coming out of months-long parallel investigations by the House Nunes and Goodlatte... and Senate Grassley and Johnson, along with DOJ Inspector General Horowitz.  It can be easy to get lost amid the deluge. Representative Jim Jordan gives a solid summary of how the information intersects amid the “small group” within a corrupt upper-tier of FBI officials.  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/02/07/rep-jim-jordan-summ...

Audit Reveals Extent of Pentagon's Accounting Woes 
by Jordan Candler:  The Pentagon has an accounting problem. It’s so bad that it has culminated in close to a billion dollars that auditors can’t trace. That’s based on an analysis by the prominent accounting firm Ernst & Young. After scrutinizing construction-related projects, the firm discovered that the Defense Logistics Agency, which represents “the Department of Defense’s combat logistics support agency,” botched satisfactorily documenting expenditures to the tune of $849 million.

          Regular Patriot Post readers won’t find this surprising. In December 2016, our own Lewis Morris reported on liar-nObama’s Pentagon waste and outsourcing. Like his protégé liar-Hillary Clinton, liar-nObama and his administration in general were complicit in trying to quash inconvenient information, including an effort to suppress a Defense Business Board report that exposed $125 billion in wasteful and fraudulent spending at the Pentagon.
          Like everything liar-nObama did, that was a calculated decision. As Morris wrote, “Remember the days of the sequester when liar-nObama was blaming Republicans for leaving our national defense vulnerable because of ‘reckless cuts’? Cuts that were his idea for political gain. Well, if the Pentagon had followed the Defense Business Board’s recommendations, it would have found the savings it needed to balance out the sequester cuts, which was what was intended at the time anyway. But   liar-nObama opted instead to close DC memorials and national parks so as to score more political points.”
          Detractors are quick to jump on the new Pentagon audit to make a broader point against the need for additional defense spending. The biggest problem with that position? Defense spending is constitutional, unlike many other federal programs on which taxpayer money is wasted. So we’re clear, however, just because defense spending is constitutional doesn’t mean the Pentagon doesn’t require regular audits. It is a government bureaucracy, after all. And on that note, Pentagon budget official David Norquist says, “Beginning in 2018, our audits will occur annually, with reports issued Nov. 15.” In other words, there appears to be an immediate and ongoing campaign to enact changes.
          Furthermore, the Ernst & Young audit report could pay immediate dividends. As already stated, we dole out money to massive welfare programs whose very existence is unconstitutional — never mind the waste, fraud and abuse. Yet those programs don’t receive nearly the flack that the Defense Department does. And with all eyes on the Pentagon, it naturally feels more pressure to get its ducks in a row. That can only help to divert resources to where they are most needed. And our military readiness will improve as a result.   ~The Patriot Pos

ALERT ALERT

GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails
Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic Bag Republican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.

The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.

UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.

Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.

Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…

…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.

Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire
A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500

A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.

Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.

FOX News reported:

A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.

“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”

Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.

On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”

The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
