Nunes Reveals Serious Threat,
Critical We Find Out What’s Really Going On
by Rick Wells
{} ~ Sean Hannity told Newt Gingrich on Wednesday, “I look at this and I say ‘Wow,’ here it is, the media has been so wrong for so long... They’re trying to make a big deal ‘well, was he actually wiretapped or as there surveillance?’ For two weeks on this program we have been pointing out that in fact surveillance did take place. Now this is confirmed and Devin Nunes, the House Intelligence Committee chair is very disturbed. I think every American should feel the same way.” Gingrich agrees, saying, “Well, I hope that both the House and Senate Intelligence committees are going to dig into this and rip apart the bureaucracies and find out who did it, who authorized it, how did they make the changes that the liar-nObama ‘presidency’ made to make it easier to leak? This is really very, very sobering about American civil liberties. Here apparently you have a ‘president’ who’s party is defeated, who then uses the intelligence apparatus of the United States and then changes the rules knowing it will make it easier to leak, and this whole thing is sick.” “I also thing that it is astonishing,” says Gingrich, “to have had everybody pile on President Trump and now turn out that President Trump is right. I look forward to the New York Times and the Washington Post issuing editorials mea culpa admitting that Trump was right and they were wrong...
Vetting Trump’s Foreign Policy Team
by Roger Aronoff
{} ~ President Donald Trump fared much better in the House Intelligence Committee hearing on Monday than the left-wing, establishment media would have you believe... The American Spectator’s George Neumayr captured the essence of the findings: “…the core claim underlying Trump’s tweets is true: people acting on the authority of liar-nObama opened an investigation into Trump’s campaign, then criminally leaked mention of it to friendly news outlets in an attempt to derail his election. When is liar-nObama going to apologize for that?” But for weeks now, CNN and MSNBC have been calling Trump a liar, saying that there is no evidence to support his tweets, and demanding that he back down and apologize for his accusations against former President Barack liar-nObama. But Trump is also taking hits from people who have generally supported him, but who feel he is failing to live up to his promises. One such example is a recent column by Ann Coulter, who criticizes Trump for supporting the Ryan-Trump American Health Care Act as the replacement for liar-nObamacare, and for his slow start on getting control of the illegal alien issue and border security. Coulter says that “This is starting to look like every other Republican administration.” Yes, his administration is just two months old, so maybe it’s too early to judge on those issues...
Tucker Goes Off on Defense Attorney
Blaming the Rockville High Rape Victim
{} ~ Carlson interviewed the Attorney for the alleged rapists at a high school in Rockville Maryland. Things went from bad to worse for the attorney after he said the rape was consensual with the 14-year-old...  When 19-year-old has sex with a 14-year-old it’s still raping, right? The age of consent in Maryland is 16-years-old. A quick Google search; Like most states, there are some situations in Maryland where people under the age of consent may legally have sex, as long as there is only a small age difference between them. In Maryland, persons aged between 14 and 16 may consent to sex as long as the other partner is not more than 4 years older. He was more than four years older than the young lady. Watch the heated interview below. Mind blowing.
Pulosi Protecting liar-nObama By Attacking Messenger Nunes, Demanding “Change Of Venue”
by Rick Wells
{} ~ It’s reflexive and standard operating procedure for Democrats to attack the messenger when the news is something they don’t like. Despite their claims to the contrary, they have zero interest in the truth, objectivity or benefiting the United States in any regard... They’re all about  political advantage, political expansion, accumulation and consolidation of power and, of course, getting rich –  all the time. Their response to Rep Devin Nunes letting the cat out of the bag as to their espionage activities on the President was to be expected. During the period from November of last year until the inauguration, after the election, some intense surveillance of the Trump team was engaged in by the exiting regime. They have been found out, their treachery discovered and have no way to hide. They’ll “run a liar-Clinton” and ignore their own wrongdoing, portraying the one who revealed it as the “true villain.” House Hag and Minority Leader Nancy Pulosi (D-CA) dismissed Rep Nunes , who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, on Thursday as a stooge for President Trump who can’t be trusted to conduct their Russia-Trump snipe hunt objectively...
Comey Dishonest In House Hearings –
Body Language Of A Liar
by Rick Wells
{} ~ Freedom Watch founder and former federal prosecutor Larry Klayman  was interviewed on Newsmax regarding the House testimony of FBI Director Comey, which Klayman feels was not truthful... Before getting into the Comey testimony, Klayman reminds the audience that they have a whistleblower, Dennis Montgomery, who is willing to testify and has been available for over two years. He’s already been granted immunity and, unbelievably, has over six hundred million pages of information about illegal surveillance on American citizens such as President Trump,” who Klayman states was included in the collection. He says that fact has been buried for two years. He urges the audience and host to take a look at the clip in which “Comey is asked by Congressman Trey Gowdy, ‘Did you discuss intercepts of Gen Michael Flynn with the President of the United States?’ And his eyes go in every different direction, he’s very uncomfortable, he won’t answer the question, he says ‘I can’t discuss it,’ yet he’s willing to discuss a criminal investigation with regard to collaboration with Russia, allegedly by the Trump campaign.”...
 An Untrustworthy FBI Director 
By Arnold Ahlert: "Where did Comey get the idea to investigate the Trump campaign?" —George Neumayr, American Spectator
          In testimony best described as a series of obfuscations, FBI Director James Comey never directly answered that essential question. But he confirmed to the House Select Intelligence Committee that his agency has been investigating Russian interference in the election since last July, including "the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts," Wired reported.
          What kind of interference? "Testifying before the House Intelligence Committee Monday morning, NSA Director Admiral Michael Rogers and FBI Director James Comey stated unequivocally that there was no evidence the Russians manipulated election machines to rig the vote," stated the Conservative Review.
          Yet if the vote itself wasn't rigged, then what — exactly — does such "coordination" consist of? If it amounts to some sort of quid pro quo, why didn't former President liar-nObama's open-mic promise to former Russian President Dmitri Medvedev he would "have more flexibility" following his re-election merit similar inquiries?
          Moreover, what quid pro quo? The sanctions remain in place, the U.S. troops liar-nObama sent to Poland are still there, and U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has strongly condemned the Russians for the occupation of Crimea that occurred on liar-nObama's watch.
          Freshman Rep. Elise M. Stefanik (R-NY) managed to cut through some of Comey's orchestrated fog, making him visibly uncomfortable in the process. She asked Comey what the typical protocols are for notifying the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the White House and senior congressional leaders that an FBI investigation is taking place. "There is a practice of a quarterly briefing on sensitive cases," Comey replied, adding that his agency was making an effort to shorten it. Yet when Stefanik asked, "When did you notify the White House, the DNI and congressional leadership"? Comey revealed that timeline was an utter sham, stating the DOJ knew about the investigation "all along," and congressional leadership was notified "sometime recently."
          The DNI? "I don't know what the DNI's knowledge of it was because we did not have a DNI until Mr. Coates took office, and I briefed him his first morning," Comey insisted.
          Former Indiana legislator Dan Coates was confirmed by the Senate on March 15.
          What about former DNI James Clapper? As Reuters reported on Jan. 5, Clapper "publicly defended his analysts against attacks by Donald Trump following their conclusion that Russia interfered in the November election." If we believe Comey, he and Clapper were pursuing what amounted to parallel investigations without ever communicating with each other, even as "current and former American officials" were feloniously outing former national Security Director Michael Flynn, as the New York Times reported Feb. 9.
          Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was the other Republican willing to focus the inquiry where it deserved to be focused. He wanted to know the status of the investigation into those actual crimes committed, including the number of people capable of doing so. Comey refused to confirm the FBI has even begun an investigation into the leaking of Flynn's name. And while he assured Gowdy he could provide the number, he insisted the "culture" of the FBI and NSA is a far more important consideration.
          Gowdy wasn't buying it. "NSA, FBI — what other government agencies have the authority to unmask a U.S. citizen's name?" he asked. Comey replied that "all agencies that collect information pursuant to FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) have what are called standard minimization procedures which are approved by the FISA court that govern how they will treat U.S person information. So I know the NSA does, the CIA does, obviously the FBI does. I don't know for sure beyond that."
          With Comey's agreement, Gowdy added "Main Justice" to the list. When asked about the White House and other entities, Comey called them "consumers" of such intel who were not allowed to legally disseminate it. Yet Gowdy forced Comey to admit that White House appointees such as Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, former AG Loretta Lynch and former acting AG Sally Yates would all have access to an unmasked U.S. citizen's name.
          Gowdy then posed the critical question. "Did you brief President liar-nObama on any calls involving Michael Flynn?" Comey refused to answer. "I'm not going to get into either that particular case, that matter, or any conversations I had with the president."
          Why not? The Times and other media sources are excoriating Trump for tweets accusing liar-nObama of "wiretapping" him. But the same paper's Jan. 20 headline was, "Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides," and the article included the following sentence: "One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House."
          To the delight of Democrats, Comey testified there was no evidence of such wiretapping. Yet once again the question arises: Who ordered the investigation into Trump and his associates?
          Moreover, what about other types of surveillance, Mr. Comey? On Feb. 2, CNN reported they received a transcript of the private phone call between Trump and Mexican President Peña Nieto. Published transcripts infuriated Gowdy, who asked Comey if he could assure the public such felonies would be investigated. "I can't," Comey replied, "but I hope people watching know how seriously we take leaks of classified information. But I don't want to confirm it by saying we're investigating." Again, why not?
          "Comey is adept at using innuendo and leaks to remind the powerful that he cannot be ignored," NY Post columnist Michael Goodwin asserts. "The prerogative to investigate, and the willingness to feed a scandal-hungry media, is close to being God in politics, and Comey plays the role with relish."
          With an ample assist from the liar-nObama administration, it's a role Comey will likely play for a long time. "In its final days, the liar-nObama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government's 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections," the Times reported on Jan 12. On March 1, the Times reported that White House officials "scrambled" to spread information about the possible Russian/Trump collusion "across the government."
          Who ordered the exponential increase in the number of people privy to such intel — which had the incredibly coincidental byproduct of exponentially increasing the number of suspects that need to be investigated, and the time it takes to investigate them — thereby keeping a cloud hanging over a Trump administration for as long as possible?
          This week it got even worse. House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) revealed that intelligence community members "incidentally collected" information on Trump transition team members that engendered "dozens" of reports that ultimately unmasked many individuals' identities. Moreover, those reports were "widely disseminated." None of this was mentioned by Comey at the hearings.
          There's a noxious odor arising from this investigation — and FBI Director James Comey is in the middle of the stench. As a result we are fast approaching the most perilous question of all for a democratic republic that cannot survive without a certain level of faith in those imbued with the power to protect the Rule of Law: Who investigates the investigators?  ~The Patriot Post
