Fmr AG Mukasey – Unusal FISA Case Is Public,
FBI Usually Keeps Target Anonymous
by Rick Wells
{} ~ Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey joins Judge Jeanine Pirro to gain insight from his experience into the events surrounding the liar-nObama regime’s spying on the Trump campaign in the closing weeks of the election... As Judge Jeanine walks through the events with the former Attorney General, Mukasey agrees with her that FISA court requests are almost always approved and the fact that this one was initially denied in June indicates to him that there was very little substance to it. He says, “What’s interesting is that application mentioned the name ‘Trump,’ although it’s not clear in what connection, and that application was denied.” Judge Jeanine continues, saying, “And then the liar-nObama administration goes back, whether it’s the FBI or NSA, we don’t know who goes back to the FISA court.” Mukasey interrupts her and clears that question up, saying it has to be the FBI because they are the ones with the necessary jurisdiction to conduct this kind of surveillance inside the United States.”...
What every American should know about the
CIA analyst who quit and blamed Trump
by Fred Fleitz
{} ~ Last week, Edward Price, a former CIA analyst, became a media darling after the Washington Post published Price’s op-ed announcing his resignation from the CIA because he was unable to serve the Trump administration in good faith... because of President Trump’s policies and disregard for the U.S. Intelligence Community. While several media outlets rushed to interview Price and depict him as an ethical, non-political CIA officer who rejected what he claimed was the “deceitful” and “delusional” Trump administration, a brief look at the facts suggest not only is this a blatant instance of fake news, but that Price is a “fake” CIA analyst. OK, Price really did work for the CIA. But for the past several years he was a member of the liar-nObama National Security Council staff, apparently on a detail assignment from the CIA. His NSC job was serving as a spokesman and helping deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes run the liar-nObama NSC “echo chamber” that misled the news media, Congress and the American people about the July 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.  Price even bragged to New York Times writer David Samuels about how he manipulated and lied to the press to promote the Iran deal...
liar-nObama/liar-Clinton Pull Fast One –
FISA Judges Should Have Recused Themselves
by Rick Wells
{} ~ There’s a reason or at least a conflict of interest that shouts to be recognized as the reason why the FISA warrant that was first denied by the full and secret FISA court in June of last year... to wiretap the Trump campaign was approved just over three months later. If one looks into the way the FISA judges are appointed to their positions, from which they engage in decision making that is out of the public eye and scrutiny, it is striking how little oversight there is. The appointments are made by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and, while Chief Justice Roberts was appointed by Republican George W. Bush, four of his five FISA appointments were judges appointed to their federal positions by either Bill liar-Clinton or Hussein liar-nObama. Roberts is often seen as a wild card, with his positions often a nail-biter or a surprising, complete, unmitigated disaster, as he demonstrated with liar-nObamacare. FISA decisions are made by a single judge and apparently those on the Lynch DOJ Trump spying program had the misfortune of drawing a judge who was a throwback to the old days of judicial integrity and putting country ahead of Democrat politics. They were turned down. The problem they faced is that it is not a simple matter of filing again and hoping for a better judge if you’re denied. Those decisions can’t be heard again by another judge...
Iran launched 2 ballistic missiles...
by Lucas Tomlinson
{} ~ Continuing a pattern of provocative actions, Iran this weekend test-fired a pair of ballistic missiles and sent fast-attack vessels close to a U.S. Navy ship in the Strait of Hormuz, U.S. officials confirmed to Fox News... One of Iran's ballistic missile tests were successful, destroying a floating barge approximately 155 miles away, two U.S. officials with knowledge of the launch told Fox News. The launches of the Fateh-110 short-range ballistic missiles were the first tests of the missile in two years, one official said. It was not immediately clear if this was the first successful test at sea -- raising concerns for the U.S. Navy, which operates warships in the area, one of which had an "unsafe and unprofessional" interaction with Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. boats on Saturday...
liar-nObama’s Alleged Surveillance Of
Trump Tower Is ‘Profoundly Unconstitutional
But It Is Legal’
by Christian Datic
{} ~ Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on allegations that the liar-nObama administration monitored Trump Tower during the 2016 election on Fox News Monday morning... calling the alleged actions “profoundly unconstitutional” but still “legal.” Because of the unique interpretation of a Ronald Reagan executive order… and because of the language of the USA Freedom Act,” Napolitano explained. “The NSA now has ability to capture in realtime the digital copies of everybody’s phone calls, cell and landline, everybody’s key strokes, mobile device and desktop.” “The NSA works for the president. If the president were to ask for a transcribed copy of any of that, they’d give it to him,” he continued. “The President of the United States can order surveillance on any person inside the United States in conjunction with a certificate or a certification filed by the attorney general.”...
Andrew Breitbart, Gone Five Years:
We Miss You Friend
by Jeff Dunetz

My goal is to try to weaponize the American people, try to weaponize the conservative movement, try to weaponize the underground conservative Hollywood movement, to weaponize as many people in the center-right country to try to rectify a generation-plus long problem that has been absolute media bias, absolute media used by the Democratic Party as a tool to defeat conservatives. –Andrew Breitbart

{} ~ It’s hard to believe that Andrew Breitbart’s giant heart gave out five years ago this past Wednesday, March 1, 2012. Despite the fact that it’s been five years, his cell phone number is still on my iPhone, his name is still in my LinkedIn contacts, and most importantly, the spark of fire and passion he injected into everyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with him is still burning in my heart.

I started writing for the “Big” sites because I developed a reputation for strong articles about Israel and the Middle East. Andrew Breitbart and his friend Larry Solov (a Jew who is now Breitbart CEO) conceived of the idea to found Breitbart News Network, with “the aim of starting a site that would be unapologetically pro-freedom and pro-Israel.”

During the last year and a half of his life, I penned 2-3 articles a week the Breitbart “big” sites Big Government, Big Peace, Big Journalism, and Big Hollywood. At first most of my posts of were about Israel or other Jewish-related issues (one of the biggest of which was breaking the story about he anti-Semitic video that cost Helen Thomas her job).  But soon I expanded into politics, culture, media criticism, and international relations.
Though never part of Andrew’s inner circle of friends, may have spoken to each other only a total of maybe 30 times (either in person or on the phone) during his too-short life, I called Andrew Breitbart my friend (and still do). This was not some delusion of grandeur on my part, it was part of the magic of Breitbart. Andrew made everyone he met like they were the most important people in the world and a key component of his team.

For example, while on the publicity tour for his latest book, Andrew appeared on the Hugh Hewitt radio show. Hewitt jokingly told Breitbart he was disappointed that his name wasn’t in the acknowledgements. Piling on to a good joke, I tweeted Andrew to let him know that Hewitt had no right to be in the acknowledgements, but as one of his most prolific contributors, I should have been named and received some of his royalties on top of it. The very next day, I received a phone call apologizing for not including me. He said he knew it was a joke, but he wanted to make sure I wasn’t really upset. That was the Andrew Breitbart I knew; he always found time to make others feel important.

Andrew urged us to be unafraid as long as we had the truth on our side. He gave us the confidence to stand up to bullies no matter who they were and whether they were a “regular Joe” or the president of the United States. He also taught us to look beyond the public personas on the front lines. That the bigger threats were the people behind the scenes who pulled the strings as to gain personal power, money, and influence. For example my first posts about George Soros was for Big Government.

And as is the practice of the very best leaders, when any bullies went after the folks on his team,  Andrew would step in front of us to take the bullet. One Saturday evening after posting an article about M.J. Rosenberg, an anti-Israel columnist the day before on Big Journalism,  I turned on my computer to find hundreds of twitter mentions on my account.  Apparently, a senior person at the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America had decided to call me a Jew-Basher. Realizing that I would not be online during the Jewish Sabbath, Andrew and the entire team of Breitbart editors spent the day “beating up” the Media Matters people in my defense.

Andrew Breitbart was the guy you wanted in the “fox hole” with you.  And I was honored that he welcomed me into the ‘fox hole” with him.  The truth is— it wasn’t just me; everyone who was willing to get off their ass and fight for the truth was welcome into the foxhole with Andrew. But a warning If you were found yourself in a foxhole with Andrew, you would have to walk delicately around the large pile of cell phones with him. The guy was always working it, texting, talking etc. Once, while on the phone with him as he was driving on some California highway, I heard a noise followed by his statement that he had to go because his other phone was ringing. HIS OTHER PHONE?!?!?  IN A CAR!?!?  Andrew balanced more cell phone conversations at the same time than any non-super human person who ever lived.

Andrew was a multitasker. Not the normal kind who can work, watch TV, and talk on the phone at the same time; that’s for amateurs. Andrew could talk about five different, incredibly diverse topics simultaneously to five totally different people. He would not only be able to keep them straight, but he’d also come up with brilliant ideas about how to tackle each topic.

Andrew was a bit crazy, crazy like a fox. Sometimes, he would intimidate progressive bullies simply because they wouldn’t know what he would do or say next. But like Hamlet, it was all just an act.

At CPAC Andrew would usually speak on Saturday mornings and it was a brilliant scheduling strategy, because it didn’t matter how late attendees were up partying the night before, we would happily wake up early to attend his speeches because they were nothing short of incredible.  At some point during each appearance, it would seem as he had no idea what he was saying, that he was simply spewing some “stream of conciseness.” But, in the end his speeches always made sense, proved some important point, rallied the “troops,” and usually was funny as all hell.

Arguably, Andrew’s best public moment involved the first of the Anthony Weiner sexting scandals. In the spring of 2011, Weiner tweeted a link to photo of his erect penis concealed by boxer briefs to a 21-year-old female college student from Seattle, Washington, who had “conversed” with the congressman before via twitter. Though Weiner quickly removed the link from his twitter feed, screen shots of Weiner’s original message and of the photo were captured by another twitter user and sent to Andrew Breitbart who published them on Big Government the following day.

Because Andrew ‘s “Big” sites were such a threat the media attacked Breitbart, accused him of faking the picture and/or hacking into Weiner’s twitter account. Eventually, Weiner scheduled a press conference to admit his guilt. I planned on watching the TV coverage, but before the press conference was to start, I received a tweet from a Breitbart colleague telling me to turn on the set immediately, Andrew had taken over the Weiner presser.

That was a bit of an exaggeration. Breitbart was in New York for a television appearance and, when he heard about the presser, so he decided to walk over and watch it live from the back of the room. But, members of the press saw him enter, and soon all of the assembled media were aware of Andrew’s presence. Suddenly the TV cameras that were focused on the podium waiting for Weiner, turned around to cover Andrew Breitbart. Marcia Kramer of the local CBS affiliate suggested that Andrew take the stage and answer questions. The video of that impromptu press conference is below.

Andrew saw himself as a protector of bloggers, tea partiers and all who were attacked by bullies from either side of the aisle. He was a “lead, follow or get out-of-the-way” type of person, most of us chose to follow because no other human being could stay ahead of his amazing energy.

The last time I saw Andrew was at the bar on the last day of CPAC 2012. Sarah Palin had just finished her keynote address and the tired crew of bloggers was getting ready to go out to celebrate the three days of intense work just completed –well, all except for Breitbart. Andrew was holding court in the lounge of the hotel bar, discussing the news of the day with a group of college students who had attended CPAC. He was answering their questions and wasn’t going anywhere until each questioner was satisfied. Andrew wasn’t there because of some need to be adored by a big crowd, but because he really cared about the future of this country, wanted to create new citizen-journalists, and wanted these students to understand what was going on around them.
That’s the point the anti-Breitbart smear machine could never understand, Breitbart wasn’t working hard to promote his politics or his ego – he was motivated by his love for this country, a quest for the truth, and for the future of our children.

In a way, it is ironic that when Andrew died four years ago; it was just before the Jewish holiday of Purim. Like many Jewish holidays, Purim’s theme is “they tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat.” But what makes Purim different is that there is no overt splitting of the sea-type miracle. The story teaches us the victory came from God even though he was “hidden” during Purim. To celebrate Purim, Jews wear masks and costumes to hide our faces the same way God did.

Andrew Breitbart’s work was all about masks and hiding. He forced politicians and mass media figures to take off their masks–that spin and rhetoric covering so much of what citizens are still being told today. He fought hard to ensure that we would not be confused by the “happy-talk, everything is wonderful” costumes covering up the dangers ahead for America. At the same time, he created an army of truth-seekers, most of whom are still fighting a half of a decade later.

When Andrew passed away  the country lost a heroic warrior. I lost a mentor and a friend. Andrew Breitbart made America a better, more transparent country, as he made those of us who had the joy of working for him better truth-seekers and people.

I am sure this week there were many posts about Andrew, but If he were here to read them he would tell us all to stop the whining, get off our asses, go fight for the truth. With Andrew it was never about him. Anyone who really wants to honor Andrew Breitbart’s memory, there is only one way to do it. Get off the sidelines! This is our fight now. As Andrew said in his last CPAC speech, “pick up a sword and join in”.

Andrew is no longer here to help us, but something tells me he is in heaven right now warning God and some angels not to believe what that leftist Satan guy is saying.

May God continue to provide comfort to Andrew’s wife Susannah, their four kids and the rest of his friends and loved ones on this the anniversary of his passing. And may Andrew Breitbart’s memory continue to always be for a blessing.

Newsweek’s Headquarters
Raided By The NYPD

The headquarters of Newsweek was raided by the NYPD Thursday morning. Police reportedly took photos of the magazine’s servers.

New York Post reports:

About two dozen NYPD officers and investigators from the Manhattan district attorney’s office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media, on Thursday.

IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac. The IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac in December 2017.

The agents were said to be photographing servers in the offices, but not downloading any files at the offices on 7 Hanover Square, according to sources.

Few details have emerged from the raid.

“Looking into reports that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office @ManhattanDA raided Newsweek/IBT Offices today….sources say police have been there for hours. The DA has declined to comment,” tweeted reporter Avi Asher-Schapiro.

Newsweek is also in the news Thursday after an “insider” told The Wrap editor Jon Levine that the magazine has abandoned journalism for “rage clicks,” in the Trump-era.

“Newsweek was once a premiere media organization and an incredible springboard for young journalists hoping to grow a name for themselves,” the source told Levine.

“The company culture has turned the newsroom into a toxic work environment, while the publication has descended into a content farm for last-resort clickbait,” the source added.
