liar-Pelosi's Ploy
By William L. Gensert
{ americanthinker.com } ~ Some say there is an evil genius to liar-Pelosi’s withholding Articles of Impeachment from the Senate where they are certain to face ignominious defeat... As long as she refuses to submit, the “Wicked B!tch of the West” can claim Trump has been impeached without having to acknowledge that her crimeless Articles are doomed to an unceremonious trouncing in a Republican-controlled Senate. She is counting on an uninformed public, unaware that constitutionally, until she transmits the articles to the Senate, Trump has not been impeached. A grand jury can decide for indictment but if the prosecutor chooses not to file the indictment with the court, that person has not been indicted. To paraphrase her ideological thought-mate, Ted Kaczynski, liar-Pelosi, with the delay of her impeachment bomb, “wants to eat her cake and have it too.” She knows people will believe that Trump has been impeached. After all, it’s often said Nixon was impeached, despite the easily findable information that he resigned before Articles of Impeachment were voted on. Yet, at best for liar-Pelosi, like Schrodinger's cat, Trump now is neither impeached nor unimpeached, or both, at this time, or any time, I don’t know, it’s all so confusing -- I would never put a cat in a box a hat perhaps…, especially with something that could kill it. Still, the Speaker has been effective at staining Trump, the man and his presidency, with the dreaded “asterisk” of shame. And, maybe that was her goal all along. I’m not so sure, however. I’m more inclined to believe that liar-Nancy is past her “mumble-by” date and allowed her hatred to obscure the idiocies of the Laurel and Hardy of the House, scumbag/liar-Schiff and scumbag liar-Nadler, while facilitating her succumbing to their seductive pursuit of the president. It wasn’t her plan, to withhold the Articles from the Senate. But she knew that regardless of what was in the Articles, it was going down to defeat. She deliberately didn’t include crimes because she didn’t want a “not guilty” verdict in the Senate to preclude the use of any of her crime allegations in future impeachments. So, she’s saving them for next time...  https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/12/pelosis_ploy.html   

IG FISA Report Identifies One Confidential 
Human Source Leading to Audit of FBI Activity
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Yesterday we identified one FBI Confidential Human Source who was part of the Trump campaign. Today we identify another, more interesting, one... Throughout the 478-page IG report on FBI FISA misconduct there are several mentions of Confidential Human Sources (CHSs) who were either officially “tasked” or unofficially involved in the 2016 FBI investigation of the Trump campaign. The inspector general review of the CHS activity is fraught with examples of the FBI denying many of the numerous “non-tasked” sources were acting in an official capacity. The inspector general’s office knowing the FBI were lacking candor is one thing; however, proving that is another matter entirely. The ‘having to take them at their word‘ dynamic appears throughout the chapters on the use of Confidential Human Sources. Horowitz report shows the level of denial and justification by FBI officials in Washington DC surrounding the deployment of human sources stretches credulity. It really is quite something to take the totality of the FBI denials, for repeated and specific events, place them all together and then determine all of this is just random, happenstance activity...

Understanding Why There’s No
FBI Whistleblowers Outlining
Institutional Corruption
by sundance
theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ {To understand why there’s no-one in the administrative mid-tier of the FBI acting in a whistle-blowing capacity requires a background perspective looking at the totality of corruption... The institutions are protecting themselves; and yes, that protection applies to the internal dynamics. Former DAG Rod Rosenstein was dirty. He might not have started out dirty, but his actions in office created a dirty mess. Rosenstein facilitated the McCabe operation against Trump during the May 16th, 2017, White House FBI sting against Trump with Mueller.  Rosenstein also facilitated the special counsel writ large, and provided three scope memos to expand the corrupt investigation of President Trump. According to the inaction of AG Bill Barr, we’re not allowed to see those authorizing scope memos. Additionally, despite knowing the Trump investigation held a false predicate, Rosenstein signed the 3rd renewal of a fraudulent FISA application. Worse yet, even if Rosenstein was caught up by corruption around him, he did nothing to stop the fraud once identified. Why is Rosenstein a key inflection point? Because Rod Rosenstein recommended current FBI Director Christopher Wray to President Trump. POTUS then allowed Wray, as he does all department heads, to select his deputy – Wray chose David Bowditch. ♦Keep in mind the National Security Division of the DOJ (DOJ-NSD) was/is the epicenter of many corrupt activities, including filing the fraudulent FISA application, manipulating interpretations of law for FARA (§901) violations, and doing all of this while denying any inspector general oversight. As FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer recently noted, the DOJ-NSD is positioned as a rogue legal arm of the U.S. intelligence apparatus...

Three FBI Officials Quietly 
Working to Reveal the Truth
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ I’m not sure exactly who they are, and there’s a possibility  they might just be one person; however, it appears there are three distinct FBI officials engaged in an overall investigative capacity... attempting to break the truth through the corrupt machinery. Each individual is noted within a specific event or outcome. Hopefully AG Bill Barr has tasked his deputy James Rosen to hold an honest ‘climate assessment‘ discussion with these individuals. ♦The first honorable FBI Agent is the FBI official who enhanced the DOJ sentencing memo for James Wolfe. The DOJ prosecution, namely DC U.S. Attorney Jessie K Liu -possibly following instructions from Rod Rosenstein- was  trying to cover-up the classified intelligence leak of SSCI Security Director James Wolfe in order to protect powerful Senators. One FBI agent was obviously not happy with that DOJ leadership decision and seeded the DOJ ‘sentencing memo’ with a key sentence that exposed the cover-up: For him or her we are thankful. That sunlight, though unsuccessful in stopping the corrupt cover-up, provided just enough undeniable evidence to highlight the severity of a cover-up initiated by those running the DOJ in 2018. We note everyone associated with that decision has since been removed. ♦The second FBI official to note, might actually be a key top-level DOJ official – though that seems less likely. The second FBI official is however high ranking. The high ranking FBI position is likely because the top level security clearance was needed for this FBI agent to travel to CIA headquarters and review the CIA operation file on Carter Page. The CIA file on Carter Page included a copy of the return memo to the FBI outlining Mr. Page as a source for CIA information involving various Russian individuals. That CIA return memo was edited by corrupt FBI lead lawyer Kevin Clinesmith to hide Page’s action on behalf of the CIA...

Its Resolution to Ban Hezbollah 
is Just a Legal Charade 
by Soeren Kern
{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ Gatestone Institute recently reported that a December 19 German parliamentary resolution, which claims to call for a complete ban in Germany of Hezbollah Arabic for "The Party of Allah"... actually falls short of demanding a comprehensive ban of the terrorist organization. A senior US government official called the article "flat wrong". If only it were. Gatestone Institute wholeheartedly supports U.S. President Donald J. Trump's efforts to ban Hezbollah in Europe. The Bundestag resolution, however, calls for an incomplete ban, which appears aimed at providing the German government with political cover that would allow Berlin to claim that it has banned the group even if it has not. The Bundestag itself has issued a statement which states that it is calling for an activity ban Betätigungsverbot of Hezbollah, but not an organizational ban Organisationsverbot — an important distinction because the activity ban is legally weaker than the organizational ban. The Bundestag claimed that it is not calling for a complete organizational ban of Hezbollah because the group's structures in Germany are "not currently ascertainable." The Bundestag's statement in the original German clearly states: "Hezbollah-related association structures, which could justify an organizational ban, are not currently ascertainable." "Der Hisbollah zuzurechnende Vereinsstrukturen, die ein vereinsrechtliches Organisationsverbot begründen könnten, seien derzeit jedoch nicht feststellbar."...   https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/15346/german-parliament-hezbolla... 
If The FBI’s Contempt For The Law Is 
Not Reined In, Its Abuses Will Get Worse 
By Adam Mill
{ thefederalist.com } ~ In 2018, the U.S. government filed 1,117 final applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court for authority for the FBI to conduct electronic surveillance and physical searches... One application was withdrawn. One other was denied. The remaining 1,115 were granted. Hours before the FISA court issued a December 17 order openly declaring that it could no longer trust any of the sworn statements the FBI had submitted to justify spying on Americans, The New York Times published an opinion  article by William Webster, a former director of both the FBI and the CIA. Webster wrote, “Today, the integrity of the institutions that protect our civil order is, tragically, under assault from too many people whose job it should be to protect them.” The New York Times worked to expose government abuse of power. The New York Times now defends power from truth. Setting aside the very dubious propositions that the FBI and the CIA should be protected from criticism, let’s plumb the depths of the Webster/NYT argument. Who, according to Webster, has the job of protecting the FBI and the CIA? Webster explains exactly who he means: “I am deeply disturbed by the assertion of President Trump that our ‘current director’ — as he refers to the man he selected for the job of running the F.B.I. — cannot fix what the president calls a broken agency.” Webster goes on to suggest that the FBI should operate as an independent agency and that he is outraged by the “president’s thinly veiled suggestion that the director, Christopher Wray, like his banished predecessor, scumbag-James Comey, could be on the chopping block.” He adds, “The independence of both the F.B.I. and its director is critical and should be fiercely protected by each branch of government.” Webster goes on to make it clear that the “rule of law” is threatened by the president criticizing the FBI. The article is a symptom of how the establishment media has become the propaganda arm of an increasingly robust authoritarian movement in the United States. This movement inverts constitutional principles so that it becomes the president’s job to protect the FBI from criticism and his threat to fire an FBI chief is a threat to the Constitution. This is the kind of thing that Vladimir Putin might have told Tass to publish as he sought to seize power from Boris Yeltsin in the 1990s...   https://thefederalist.com/2019/12/26/if-the-fbis-contempt-for-the-l...

Antifa Is Dangerous and It's Time \
for the Feds to Step In
 Hans von Spakovsky
 

Enough is enough. The U.S. Justice Department needs to immediately open a criminal civil rights investigation of Antifa, an affiliation of radical activists and left-wing groups whose name, ironically enough, is short for “anti-fascists.”

Their attack on journalist Andy Ngo was beyond the pale. Federal law enforcement has an obligation to stop any extremist organization that is apparently organizing and precipitating violent attacks, especially if state and local authorities seem reluctant to take action against what has all the makings of a domestic terrorist organization.

We cannot have any confidence that the political leadership of the City of Portland will allow its local law enforcement to do anything about this, either. The Portland Police Association released a statement after the attack criticizing the mayor for restricting the ability of the police to stop Antifa, saying “our hands are tied.” The Association also says it has no doubt that no such restrictions would not have been in place “if this violence had been directed at Antifa.”

Mayor Ted Wheeler claims that he had not “directed Police Chief Danielle Outlaw or other officials to change their approach to arrests,” in addition to “defend[ing] the city’s response, or lack thereof, to members of Antifa who [have] blocked traffic and harassed bystanders” in the past. But even the U.S. Ambassador to Germany criticized the city’s executive in a series of tweets, questioning what more needs to happen to Wheeler’s citizens before protective action will be taken. Wheeler’s inaction is even less defensible because the mayor of Portland is also its police commissioner.

Ngo was punched, pushed, robbed, and hit with tossed milkshakes purportedly mixed with quick-drying cement. The well-known Quillette journalist wasn’t the only bystander attacked, as The Washington Times reports that “two [other] Oregon men — John Blum and Adam Kelly — were mobbed and pummeled by black-masked protesters in a horrific attack that left Mr. Blum bleeding profusely from wounds to his face and skull.”

Columnist Michelle Malkin noted that “both John & Adam were beaten by Antifa after trying to help a gay man in a sundress being chased down the street.” This all occurred in broad daylight, and was filmed by multiple bystanders while Portland police stood on the sidelines and did nothing to stop it.

The assault did not come out of nowhere. In fact, it seems to have been a targeted attack given that the protest planners specifically (and falsely) labeled Ngo as a “far-right Islamophobic journalist who…also targets the Democratic Socialists of America while dismissing as hoaxes a series of assaults against the Portland LGBTQ community” in advertising the event in the days leading up to the march.

Federal criminal law has a provision that applies directly to what Antifa is apparently doing: 18 U.S.C. §241 prohibits conspiracies to “injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person…in the exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States.” Moreover, that same law prohibits individuals from going “in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured.”

Acting as a journalist, Ngo was obviously exercising his press freedom as secured by the First Amendment, and the Antifa thugs who attacked him violated Section 241, particularly since they were disguised. Violating this statute is punishable by up to 10 years in federal prison. Further, as noted in a 1951 University of Pennsylvania Law Review article, “the ‘in disguise’ language [that] began the section…had its origin in ‘the doings of the Ku Klux Klan.’” Antifa seems to have adopted the KKK’s tactics.

Ngo also may have a personal claim for damages under federal law against Antifa and its members. Another federal statute, 42 U.S.C. §1985(3), says that “If two or more persons…conspire or go in disguise…for the purpose of depriving…any person…of the equal protection of the laws, or of equal privileges and immunities under the laws…the party so injured [may recover] damages… against any one or more of the conspirators.”

As we now know, Mayor Ted Wheeler failed to protect his citizens, as police were noticeably absent when Ngo was being attacked, despite Antifa’s long record of violence, attacks and mob behavior. As a result, Ngo may have a claim directly against Wheeler and other city officials under 42 U.S.C. §1986, which creates liability for anyone who “having knowledge that any of the wrongs conspired to be done” in violation of Section 1985 “are about to be committed, and having power to prevent or aid in preventing the commission” fails to do so.

As National Review’s Douglas Murray wrote in his article on the protest, the “real lesson of Saturday is that anybody interested in genuine anti-fascism should from now on aim themselves directly at Portland’s Antifa. These are the people of our day who behave most like fascists. It is high time that they were treated as such by officialdom and civil society alike.”

On “It’s Going Down,” a popular website for Antifa and their supporters, a 2016 blog post predicted the chaos which has now become commonplace in more “progressive” parts of the country. When asked who on the left can respond to the inauguration of Donald Trump, the authors wrote, “The answer is clear as day, but it isn’t in the halls of power, in the politicians, the leaders of the unions, or in the big NGOs. Instead it’s in the rioters. The blockaders. The people in ski masks and in the streets. The ones on the front lines fighting with the cops.”

It is shocking to assert that “rioters, blockaders, cop-fighters, and people in ski masks” are the enlightened nobility who can save our constitutional republic from internal ruin. It is also plainly wrong. And it is time that federal law enforcement and Justice Department officials took notice of this potentially ominous threat to our civil society.  ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
