Bruce Ohr Emails Show Links Among liar-nObama DOJ, Steele, Simpson…
And Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska 
by Cristina Laila
{ } ~ New emails obtained by investigative journalist Byron York show Christopher Steele may have been working on behalf of Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska at the same time... he was compiling his dossier in 2016–and liar-nObama’s Justice Department, along with Fusion GPS’s Glenn Simpson may have been a part of the conspiracy. It’s important to note the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley has been trying to find out if Christopher Steele was working on behalf of Oleg Deripaska. Republican Senator Tom Cotton, a member of the Senate Intel Committee also asked FBI Director Christopher Wray in a February 14 hearing if Steele was working on behalf of the Russian oligarch Deripaska, and of course Wray replied  with his usual vague, “That’s not something I can answer.” The emails between Steele and Ohr begin in January of 2016 when Steele sent Ohr an email about the US revoking Oleg Deripaska’s visa. For the first few months of 2016, Ohr and Steele discuss the Russian oligarch Deripaska and the rehabilitation of his US visa. In July of 2016, the two begin to discuss Donald Trump as he’s preparing to accept the Republican nomination for president...
Iran test-fires ballistic missile for first time in 2018, officials say 
by Lucas Tomlinson
{ } ~ For the first time in more than a year, Iran test-fired a ballistic missile in a brazen display of defiance... months after President Trump pulled the United States out of a landmark nuclear deal and days before his administration slapped new sanctions on the Islamic Republic, three U.S. officials with knowledge of the launch tell Fox News. The test of an Iranian Fateh-110 short-range ballistic missile coincided with a large-scale naval exercise by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard forces late last week involving over 50 small gunboats in the Strait of Hormuz to rehearse “swarm” tactics which could one day potentially shut down the vital waterway, through which 30 percent of the world’s oil passes each year. While the U.S. military publicly acknowledged the naval activity, the missile test from an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps base in Bandar-e-Jask in southeastern Iran has not been previously reported. The launch was detected by a U.S. spy satellite. According to the officials, the anti-ship Fateh-110 Mod 3 flew over 100 miles on a flight path over the Strait of Hormuz to a test range in the Iranian desert. “It was shore-to-shore,” said one U.S. official describing the launch, who like the others requested anonymity to discuss sensitive information...
Veteran Reporter Says Uncovered 
FBI Text on Trump Should Alarm Every American
{ } ~ The Strzok-Page texts will be scrutinized by Americans for years to come... They’re the closest evidence we have to the thought processes going on inside the Department of Justice and FBI during the 2016 campaign season and as the special counsel began its investigation. There’s one text that most people who find something seriously wrong with how the nation’s top law enforcement agencies have behaved point to in particular — one where Peter Strzok said that “we’ll stop” Trump. According to The Hill’s John Solomon, that’s not where our gaze ought to be fixed, however. If you’re not familiar with him, Solomon is a veteran reporter who’s done some of the most important investigative journalism on the FBI and DOJ’s conduct involving the Trump/Russia investigation. He’s the one who first reported that the FBI had been investigating Russian connections before they said they were and that they hadn’t used their own protocols during the investigation and that the Bureau had tried to pressure a Russian oligarch to give evidence about Russian collusion within Trump’s campaign even though the oligarch said they were “trying to create something out of nothing.”.. 
Antifa, the Real Fascists
by Matthew Vadum
{ } ~ Foul-mouthed Antifa demonstrators went on a rampage August 6 as they assaulted two high-profile conservative activists at a downtown Philadelphia restaurant... for being conservatives and supporters of President Trump. The attack came the day after Antifa smashed the windows at a U.S. Marine Corps recruiting office in Berkeley, Calif., during a leftist counter-protest of a “No to Marxism” rally. Twenty people were arrested. “Besides the damage to the Marine Corps post, Berkeley police also said ‘an extremist element among a large group’ damaged 21 city vehicles, setting one on fire, and slashed their tires,” Fox News reported. The incident in Pennsylvania’s biggest city also came after the leftist mayor of Portland, Ore., Ted Wheeler (D), allowed anarchy to break out in his city, instead of cracking down on Antifa troublemaking. For 38 days Wheeler, who is also police commissioner, allowed hundreds of his Antifa allies to unlawfully occupy public property at an Occupy ICE protest site that eventually became a biohazard. “I do not want the @PortlandPolice to be engaged or sucked into a conflict, particularly from a federal agency that I believe is on the wrong track,” he tweeted. “If ICE is looking for a bailout from this mayor, they are looking in the wrong place.” The attack in Philadelphia and other recent violent actions by Antifa are yet another reminder that the totalitarianism-loving domestic terrorists of Antifa, who call themselves anti-fascist activists, are the real fascists in today’s America because, among other things, they use violent tactics pioneered by the real-live fascist storm-troopers of Weimar Germany, the Sturmabteilung (SA). These Antifa goons opposed the Nazis but eagerly copied their tactics, using their fists to shut down political opponents and break up meetings and rallies. Some Antifa today even dress like Nazis, wearing black and red, the anarchist colors which traditionally have also been used by Nazis...
dummycrats-Dems Are Hiding A Secret Document 
That Could Destroy The Party Forever 
{ } ~ dummycrats-Democrats relied on the media and pressure campaigns by outside groups to get InfoWars taken down... but what dummycrats- Democrats really have planned is far more frightening. Virginia dummycrats-Democrat Senator Mark Warner authored an over 20 page memo outlining the dummycrats-Democrats strategy for a complete government takeover of the internet. It is straight out of communist Russia. Warner and the dummycrats-Democrats want to force greater disclosure on political speech. The left loves to promote the idea that identifying political donors and forcing social media accounts to post under their true identities is being done in the name of transparency. But anonymous political speech is an American tradition going back to the Founding Fathers and the Federalist Papers. What the dummycrats-Democrats really want is to use the publicity of having your name attached to speech as a way to suppress dissenting opinions. Liberals will sic their outrage mobs on conservative donors who fund pro-family and pro-Second Amendment groups to harass them at their place of business or destroy their lives and careers. This is no idle threat...


One FBI text message in Russia probe 
that should alarm every American
by John Solomon

{ } ~ Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you.

Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges.

It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers of their office to “stop” Trumpfrom becoming president. The only question is whether any official acts they took in the Russia collusion probe were driven by those sentiments.

The Justice Department’s inspector general is endeavoring to answer that question.

For any American who wants an answer sooner, there are just five words, among the thousands of suggestive texts Page and Strzok exchanged, that you should read.

That passage was transmitted on May 19, 2017. “There’s no big there there,” Strzok texted.

The date of the text long has intrigued investigators: It is two days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and the Russia campaign.

Since the text was turned over to Congress, investigators wondered whether it referred to the evidence against the Trump campaign.

This month, they finally got the chance to ask. Strzok declined to say — but Page, during a closed-door interview with lawmakers, confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case, according to multiple eyewitnesses.

The admission is deeply consequential. It means Rosenstein unleashed the most awesome powers of a special counsel to investigate an allegation that the key FBI officials, driving the investigation for 10 months beforehand, did not think was “there.”

By the time of the text and Mueller’s appointment, the FBI’s best counterintelligence agents had had plenty of time to dig. They knowingly used a dossier funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign — which contained uncorroborated allegations — to persuade the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to issue a warrant to monitor Trump campaign adviser Carter Page no relation to Lisa Page.

They sat on Carter Page’s phones and emails for nearly six months without getting evidence that would warrant prosecuting him. The evidence they had gathered was deemed so weak that their boss, then-FBI Director James Comey, was forced to admit to Congress after being fired by Trump that the core allegation remained substantially uncorroborated.

In other words, they had a big nothing burger. And, based on that empty-calorie dish, Rosenstein authorized the buffet menu of a special prosecutor that has cost America millions of dollars and months of political strife.

The work product Strzok created to justify the collusion probe now has been shown to be inferior: A Clinton-hired contractor produced multiple documents accusing Trump of wrongdoing during the election; each was routed to the FBI through a different source or was used to seed news articles with similar allegations that further built an uncorroborated public narrative of Trump-Russia collusion. Most troubling, the FBI relied on at least one of those news stories to justify the FISA warrant against Carter Page.

That sort of multifaceted allegation machine, which can be traced back to a single source, is known in spy craft as “circular intelligence reporting,” and it’s the sort of bad product that professional spooks are trained to spot and reject.

But Team Strzok kept pushing it through the system, causing a major escalation of a probe for which, by his own words, he knew had “no big there there.”

The answer as to why a pro such as Strzok would take such action has become clearer, at least to congressional investigators. That clarity comes from the context of the other emails and text messages that surrounded the May 19, 2017, declaration.

It turns out that what Strzok and Lisa Page were really doing that day was debating whether they should stay with the FBI and try to rise through the ranks to the level of an assistant director (AD) or join Mueller’s special counsel team.

“Who gives a f*ck, one more AD like [redacted] or whoever?” Strzok wrote, weighing the merits of promotion, before apparently suggesting what would be a more attractive role: “An investigation leading to impeachment?”

Lisa Page apparently realized the conversation had gone too far and tried to reel it in. “We should stop having this conversation here,” she texted back, adding later it was important to examine “the different realistic outcomes of this case.”

A few minutes later Strzok texted his own handicap of the Russia evidence: “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there’s no big there there.”

So the FBI agents who helped drive the Russia collusion narrative — as well as Rosenstein’s decision to appoint Mueller — apparently knew all along that the evidence was going to lead to “nothing” and, yet, they proceeded because they thought there was still a possibility of impeachment.

Impeachment is a political outcome. The only logical conclusion, then, that congressional investigators can make is that political bias led these agents to press an investigation forward to achieve the political outcome of impeachment, even though their professional training told them it had “no big there there.”

And that, by definition, is political bias in action.

How concerned you are by this conduct is almost certainly affected by your love or hatred for Trump. But put yourself for a second in the hot seat of an investigation by the same FBI cast of characters: You are under investigation for a crime the agents don’t think occurred, but the investigation still advances because the desired outcome is to get you fired from your job.

Is that an FBI you can live with?

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
