‘Russia, get ready’: Trump says 
‘nice and new’ missiles will strike Syria
by AGENCIES 
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ US President Donald Trump on Wednesday warned Russia that “nice and new” missiles would be heading to Syria and Moscow should “get ready.”... In a tweet, Trump also said Russia shouldn’t be allied with a “Gas Killing Animal,” a reference to Syrian President Bashar Assad whose regime is accused of killing dozens of people in an alleged chemical weapons attack on rebel-held Douma over the weekend. Russian lawmakers have warned the United States that Moscow would view an airstrike on Syria as a war crime, saying it could trigger a direct military clash between the two former Cold War adversaries. “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria,” Trump tweeted. “Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”...  https://www.timesofisrael.com/russia-get-ready-trump-says-nice-and-...

All Those Assurances the Govt Must Have Evidence
by Daniel Greenfield
{ frontpagemag.com } ~ The FBI and DOJ and SDNY wouldn't possibly authorize a raid on the president's lawyer unless... they had evidence of a crime beyond the faintest shadow of a doubt. That's not just the message from the media. Plenty of analysts on the right have been putting out the message. The experts tell us that there's no way something like this would have been authorized otherwise. But let's not fall into the fallacy of assuming that the old rules apply. They don't. If you think that the key players wouldn't authorize a major move against Trump without solid evidence, let's recall that the Steele Dossier was used to justify a FISA warrant. And we were told endlessly about the rigorous process there too. But we're also told that Team Mueller doesn't leak even though the media is full of leaks coming from his people...  https://www.frontpagemag.com/point/269853/all-those-assurances-govt...

Representative Matt Gaetz is Exactly Right – 
BIG PICTURE: DOJ Covering FISA Abuse
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Representative Matt Gaetz sent out a tweet today that is absolutely accurate... You can call it a soft-coup, or you can call it politicization of the DOJ and FBI, but the end result is the same – the intentional effort to manipulate, influence, and ultimately subvert an election for the presidency of the United States…. and that’s what the DOJ is trying to hide. If you peel the skin off the onion, and get down to the substantive core issue that represents the biggest risk to the entire collective group who worked to subvert the 2016 presidential election, you get to the FISA-702(16)(17) and Title-1 surveillance abuse that was carried out by the liar-nObama Intelligence Community, DOJ-NSD and the FBI. The actions taken by ‘inside’ government officials and ‘outside’ ideological cohorts is exactly what all of their collective “resistance” activity is about. Attacking the Office of the Presidency is a strategy to keep sunlight from their previous action...   https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/04/10/representative-matt...

Liberals Suddenly Care About
Wasting Taxpayer Money
by Elizabeth Harrington
{ freebeacon.com } ~ Security costs for cabinet secretaries are "steep." Spending is "lavish" again. When, God forbid, a secretary takes his wife with him on a business trip... CNN is there with the documents in hand, showing her "involvement." The New York Times is now giving tips on how to save taxpayers money, while lambasting Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's use of military charter flights. Mnuchin's travel ended up costing half of what liar-Obama administration secretaries spent on average. Oddly, the Times never followed up. The latest target is Scott Pruitt, arguably President Trump's most effective cabinet secretary. While there is questionable conduct for sure, like using an obscure law to give aides huge taxpayer-funded raises, it's curious the media suddenly care how much international junkets cost. The first scandal that caught the press's attention was Pruitt's trip to Italy last summer to attend the G-7 summit, which cost $84,000 in airfare and security, roughly the same that Lisa Jackson, liar-nObama's first EPA administrator, spent on average on flights and security for four international trips...  http://freebeacon.com/blog/breaking-liberals-suddenly-care-wasting-...

John Bolton ruins Iran's nuclear 
holiday as Trump warns on Syria


by Jonathan Tirone 

{ jewishworldreview.com } ~ Multiple events this week will help determine the fate of the Iran nuclear deal that President Donald Trump is threatening to tear up.

John Bolton, a veteran of Republican administrations who's called for military action to stop Iran from getting a nuclear bomb, takes over as Trump's national security adviser on Monday, just as missile strikes on a Syrian military base controlled by President Bashar Assad left at least 14 people dead, including Iranians, according to local reports.

The strikes came just hours after an alleged chemical attack on a rebel stronghold near the Syrian capital Damascus prompted Trump to warn Iran and Russia that there'll be a "big price to pay" for backing Assad in Syria's civil war. It wasn't immediately clear who fired the missiles at the Syrian airbase known as T-4. The Pentagon said it wasn't involved and Russia blamed Israel.

As tensions escalated in Syria, President Hassan Rouhani celebrated National Nuclear Technology Day in Tehran with the unveiling of 83 "nuclear achievements" by Iranian scientists before sending envoys to a meeting in Beijing that will underscore China's key role in the country's civilian program.

Trump has set a May 12 deadline to improve or scrap the liar-nObama-era accord that waived sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs on the country's nuclear activities. Unilateral abrogation would almost certainly trigger a diplomatic crisis between the U.S. and the other signatories -- Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia -- and could even lead to "military confrontation," according to Foad Izadi, a foreign policy specialist at the University of Tehran.

"The future of the agreement is very much in doubt," Izadi said.

Then-President Barack liar-nObama hailed the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action for Iran as a milestone for hard-nosed diplomacy, but Trump has criticized the document for not addressing the country's missile program or support for terrorist groups. Some of his staunchest allies, including Iran's regional rivals Saudi Arabia and Israel, have been opposed from the start.

While the U.S. acknowledges that Iran is adhering to all of its commitments, Trump's envoy, Brian Hook, said the country was violating the spirit of the deal by disrupting "regional and international peace and security." He spoke in Vienna after the last session of the committee monitoring the agreement.

The March 16 meeting focused on concerns that U.S. stonewalling and saber-rattling were preventing Iran from reaping the economic benefits promised, even though inspectors have repeatedly verified its compliance, documents seen by Bloomberg show. Trump's threats to reinstate sanctions hamper the plans of companies eager to invest in Iran, including Daimler AG, Airbus SE and Peugeot SA. Both China and Russia already have major investments in Iran.

Iran is focused on making sure JCPOA countries follow through on commitments to build a reactor for producing isotopes used in high-tech products for industries from health care to engineering, according to the documents. The pledge was key to convincing Iran to destroy most of the reactor it had spent a decade assembling at a facility called Arak, which was designed to produce medical isotopes but could also have yielded plutonium for weapons.

The Atomic Energy Organization in Tehran said last month that it will announce on April 9 technological advancements related to heavy water, the element that will moderate reactions in its reactors. Iran has already hired China to help redesign Arak, but the JCPOA has yet to give the sign-off needed to begin work.

"Any failure of the negotiating partners to provide a new design would be a material violation by that side of the deal since Iran has completed its part," said Robert Kelley, a U.S. nuclear weapons engineer and former inspector for the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna.

This is where Iran and other proponents of the deal get nervous about Trump's appointment of Bolton, who has a history of scuttling deals. Back in 2003, as then-President George W. Bush's undersecretary of state for arms control, he successfully pushed for the U.S. to abandon the so-called Agreed Framework to denuclearize North Korea.

Bolton later said he pounced on a U.S. intelligence finding that North Korea had concealed a centrifuge program to convince Bush to back out of the agreement rather than pursue diplomacy. "This was the hammer I had been looking for," he wrote. North Korea then expedited its weapons program and detonated its first bomb three years later.

Izadi of Tehran University said Iranian diplomats are keenly aware of North Korea's experience and Bolton's role, and aren't optimistic the deal will last.

"Bolton is a very dangerous man," Izadi said. "He wants to achieve what he's long been asking for, which is regime change."

ALERT ALERT

CRIME!! -> Clinton Nightmare! Chief Financial Officer Of Clinton Foundation Turns Government Informant On Crime Family

Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted by 90% over a three-year period since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump.

But that may be the least of the her worries.

John Solomon from The Hill dropped another bombshell that will keep the Clintons up at night.

The former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned on the crime family and is now working as a government informant.

This could spell doom for the Clinton Crime Family.

American Thinker reported:

John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

[A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.
