McMaster Let Rice Keep Security Clearance,
Access To Unmasked Docs She’s Had Before
{rickwells.us} ~ Another example of incredible disregard for the security of the United States and its citizens and potential treasonous complicity in felonious espionage has been exhibited by none other than the top dog on the National Security Council, NSA HR McMaster... It was revealed on Thursday by Circa News that almost a month after Susan Rice was exposed as a prime suspect in the rogue and likely criminal unmasking of American citizens at the liar-nObama White House, National Security Adviser McMaster sent her a letter confirming that she would be able to retain her security clearance. In an undated, unclassified letter which was typed on plain letterhead that simply stated “The White House, Washington,” McMaster advised Rice that she would be able to keep her security clearance. He then devoted another paragraph to emphasizing that she will be able to access anything she had ever accessed before. Presumably that would include unmasked information about Trump team members or any other American unlawfully surveilled... http://rickwells.us/mcmaster-let-rice-keep-security-clearance-acces...

Muslim to U.S. judge:
'Allah will reward me, punish you'
by Art Moore
{wnd.com} ~ The fact that the U.S. faces an enemy unlike any other, who defies conventional methods of deterrence, was illustrated Wednesday in a federal courtroom in Ohio... Terrence McNeil, 24, of Akron was standing before U.S. District Judge Dan Polster to receive his sentence on charges he threatened members of the military and their families in the name of ISIS. The judge issued a 20-year prison sentence, but McNeil defiantly told Polster it was of no concern to him, Cleveland.com reported. “Nothing you did today even matters,” McNeil said. “Jihad will continue until the day of judgment. And that’s a promise from Allah...http://www.wnd.com/2017/08/muslim-to-u-s-judge-allah-will-reward-me...

Muslim Brotherhood Leader
Reaffirms "Islamic Caliphate" Ambition
{investigativeproject.org} ~ In an effort to invigorate the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the group's leaders, Magdy Shalash, reminded supporters that the organization's main objective is establishing an "Islamic Caliphate" based on "Sharia" law... "The Muslim Brotherhood was established for a general overall purpose, namely, the return of the comprehensive entity of the Umma (Muslim community)...the Islamic Caliphate, which is based on many Sharia proofs," Shalash wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday that was translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT). While many Islamist apologists attempt to defend the use of terms like "caliphate" or "jihad" as purely religious and peaceful concepts, Shalash does not try to hide the Brotherhood's true colors... https://www.investigativeproject.org/6477/muslim-brotherhood-leader-reaffirms-islamic

Martin Shkreli Convicted Of Securities Fraud
by Brendan Pierson
{dailycaller.com} ~ A U.S. jury convicted Martin Shkreli, the brash former drug company and hedge fund executive who drew fierce criticism for jacking up drug prices, of securities fraud on Friday in an unrelated case... Shkreli, who was acquitted of five of the eight charges against him in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, characterized the verdict as a victory and called the case a “witch hunt.” Federal prosecutors had accused the 34-year-old of defrauding investors in his hedge funds and stealing from his old drug company, Retrophin Inc , to pay them back...http://dailycaller.com/2017/08/04/karma-boy-martin-shkreli-convicte...

Sessions WARNS LEAKERS – DOJ, DNI
Getting Serious, You WILL BE PROSECUTED
{rickwells.us} ~ The White House is going to crack down on leaks, leaks won’t be tolerated, they endanger national security. That’s the empty drivel that has been the soundtrack accompanying the incessant flow of information, much of it classified, since President Trump took over... They told us it won’t be tolerated but it’s been tolerated to this point. The first time portions of the President’s conversations with Mexico and Australia were leaked was in February, six months ago. A Vanity Fair article from February 17th on the topic indicated the source of the leaked information, stating, “Citing senior U.S. officials, The Washington Post reports that Trump tore into Turnbull when the Australian leader sought to confirm that the president, who had suspended the U.S. refugee program the previous day by executive order, would still honor an agreement reached during the liar-nObama administration to resettle 1,250 refugees held in an Australian detention center in the U.S.” That was the first instance of those conversations being leaked, with the source at that time being senior US officials. Those are the folks in charge, the veterans, the ones that should be making sure things like this don’t happen. If your enforcers are the perpetrators there is no order. The White House has been enduring a cascade of roughly a leak per day since that time and has at best been chasing its tail in their “efforts” to stop it...http:///sessions-warns-leakers-doj-dni-getting-serious-prosecuted/

Is Trump's Russia Policy Being Hijacked?
by Pat Buchanan
{
wnd.com} ~ In crafting the platform in Cleveland on which Donald Trump would run, America Firsters inflicted a major defeat on the War Party.

The platform committee rejected a plank to pull us deeper into Ukraine, by successfully opposing new U.S. arms transfers to Kiev.

Improved relations with Russia were what candidate Trump had promised, and what Americans would vote for in November.

Yet, this week, The Wall Street Journal reports:

"The U.S. Pentagon and State Department have devised plans to supply Ukraine with antitank missiles and other weaponry and are seeking White House approval ... as Kiev battles Russia-backed separatists ... Defense Secretary Mattis has endorsed the plan..

As pro-Russia rebels in East Ukraine have armored vehicles, Kiev wants U.S. tank-killing Javelin missiles, as well as antiaircraft weapons.

State and Defense want Trump to send the lethal weapons. This is a formula for a renewed war, with far higher casualties in Ukraine than the 10,000 dead already suffered on both sides.

And it is a war Vladimir Putin will not likely allow Kiev to win. If Ukraine's army, bolstered by U.S. weaponry, re-engages in the east, it could face a Moscow-backed counterattack and be routed, and the Russian army could take permanent control of the Donbass.

Indeed, if Trump approves this State-Defense escalation plan, we could be looking at a rerun of the Russia-Georgia war of August 2008. Then, to recapture its lost province of South Ossetia, which had seceded in 1992, after Georgia seceded from Russia, Georgia invaded.

Putin sent his army in, threw the Georgians out, and recognized South Ossetia, as John RINO-McCain impotently declaimed, "We are all Georgians now!"

Wisely, George W. Bush ignored RINO-McCain and did nothing. But about this new arms deal questions arise. As the rebels have no aircraft, whose planes are the U.S. antiaircraft missiles to shoot down? And if the Russian army just over the border can enter and crush the Ukrainian army, why would we want to restart a civil war, the only certain result of which is more dead Ukrainians on both sides?

The Journal's answer: Our goal is to bleed Russia.

"The point of lethal aid is to raise the price Mr. Putin pays for his imperialism until he withdraws or agrees to peace. ... The Russians don't want dead soldiers arriving home before next year's presidential election."

Also going neocon is Mike Pence. In Georgia this week, noting that Russian tanks are still in South Ossetia, the vice president not only declared, "We stand with you," he told Georgians the U.S. stands by its 2008 commitment to bring them into NATO.

This would mean, under Article 5 of the NATO treaty, that in a future Russia-Georgia clash the U.S. could find itself in a shooting war with Russia in the South Caucasus.

Russia's security interests there seem clear. What are ours? Along with Trump's signing of the new sanctions bill imposed by Congress, which strips him of his authority to lift those sanctions without Hill approval, these developments raise larger questions.

Is President Trump losing control of Russia policy? Has he capitulated to the neocons? These are not academic questions. For consider the architect of the new arms package, Kurt Volker, the new U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations.

A former CIA agent, member of the National Security Counsel, and envoy to NATO, Volker believes Russian troops in Transnistria, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk are all there illegally -- and U.S. policy should be to push them out.

A former staffer of Sen. RINO-McCain, Volker was, until July, executive director of the neocon RINO-McCain Institute. He has called for the imposition of personal sanctions on Putin and his family and European travel restrictions on the Russian president.

In the Journal this week, "officials" described his strategy:

"Volker believes ... that a change in Ukraine can be brought only by raising the costs for Moscow for continued intervention in Ukraine. In public comments, he has played down the notion that supplying weapons to Ukraine would escalate the conflict with Russia."

In short, Volker believes giving antitank and antiaircraft missiles to Ukraine will bring Putin to the negotiating table, as he fears the prospect of dead Russian soldiers coming home in caskets before his 2018 election.

As for concerns that Putin might send his army into Ukraine, such worries are unwarranted. Volker envisions a deepening U.S. involvement in a Ukrainian civil war that can bleed and break Russia's Ukrainian allies and convince Putin to back down and accept what we regard as a just settlement.

Does Trump believe this? Does Trump believe that confronting Putin with rising casualties among his army and allies in Ukraine is the way to force the Russian president to back down and withdraw from Crimea, Luhansk and Donetsk, as Nikita Khrushchev did from Cuba in 1962?

What if Putin refuses to back down, and chooses to confront?
