The FBI Corruption is Far Worse Than We 
Currently Imagine – President Trump 
Authorized His Own Surveillance
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Last month the DOJ admitted to the FISA court that two of the four FISA warrants used against Carter Page were fraudulently obtained... The “DOJ assesses that with respect to the applications in April and June 2017 “if not earlier, there was insufficient predication to establish probable cause to believe that Carter Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power.”” However, what the DOJ did not admit publicly was how the current FBI Chief Legal Counsel, Dana Boente, participated in obtaining the April 2017 warrant. Additionally, a review of the internal FBI & DOJ scheme to obtain the fraudulent April warrant shows FBI Director scumbag-James Comey couldn’t get the renewal unless he convinced Main Justice to trick the President into issuing an executive order to grant surveillance on himself. In hindsight this story explains the ongoing issues within the FBI. The original FISA application was October 21st, 2016. The first FISA renewal was January 12, 2017 84 days from origination and prior to the inauguration of President Trump. The second renewal was April 7, 2017 85 days from prior renewal. The third renewal was on June 29th, 2017 83 days from prior renewal...   https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/02/13/the-fbi-corruption-... 

China sees 15K new coronavirus cases, 
change in counting procedure: report
By Edmund DeMarche
{ foxnews.com } ~ The number of coronavirus cases in China significantly increased on Thursday, when 14,840 new cases of the disease were reported... The country now has more than 50,000 confirmed cases and 1,300 people have died from it worldwide. The jump in cases comes after reports out of the country indicated that the virus may have leveled off. The latest increase was attributed to the country's new approach to counting patients. The Los Angeles Times reported that about 90 percent of the new cases were "clinically diagnosed." Doctors in the country previously relied on nucleic tests for the viral disease known as COVID-19. The nucleic tests, according to reports, were criticized over their accuracy. The public has widely criticized local officials for their handling of the outbreak and Beijing has been accused of withholding key statistics in the virus' early days. The Times reported that under the new guidelines, patients undergo a CT scan of their lungs and are observed by doctors to see if they're symptomatic. China has locked down an unprecedented 60 million people in an effort to curb the spread of the virus, which has hit hardest in the city of Wuhan and surrounding towns in the Hubei province. Chinese President Xi Jinping promised tax cuts and other aid to industry as the ruling Communist Party tries to limit the mounting damage to the economy. The country is struggling to restart its economy after the annual Lunar New Year holiday was extended to try to keep people home and contain the virus. Traffic remained light in Beijing and many people were still working at home.

scumbag-Soros-Tied Group Run by Top Dem Operatives Promotes Global Leftist Agenda  
by judicialwatch.org ~ Another influential group aiming to spread leftist billionaire scumbag-George Soros’ radical global agenda has popped up in the United States... It’s called the  Transatlantic Democracy Working Group (TDWG) and it is an offshoot of the scumbag-Soros-funded German Marshall Fund, a liberal foreign policy think tank based in Washington D.C. The TDWG is operated by dozens of former senior government bureaucrats, national security experts and human rights advocates, including former scumbag/liar-nObama administration officials and staff members of Democratic politicians. The group’s director, Susan Corke, was previously Deputy Director of the Europe Section in the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor. Corke is a registered Democrat and all her federally reported campaign contributions have gone to the Democratic fundraising clearinghouse Act Blue, which has raised billions. scumbag/liar-nObama’s law school classmate, Norm Eisen, is the co-chair of the TDWG’s steering committee. Eisen also served as the deputy counsel of scumbag/liar-nObama’s presidential transition team and ambassador to the Czech Republic. During President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry, Eisen, a longtime Trump critic, served as counsel to the House Judiciary Committee. In 2003 he co-founded the liberal nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) with fellow Democratic operative Melanie Sloan and others. Eisen has contributed approximately $94,000 to Democratic candidates and committees through the years, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. The TDWG was founded in April 2018 purportedly to combat what it perceives as “democratic erosion in key NATO and EU countries.” The organization, which is housed at the German Marshall Fund headquarters, advocates for strengthening the NATO alliance, increasing integration among European Union member states, a more active U.S. role in Europe, and effective measures against Russia’s influence in the West. The group has been highly critical of the Trump administration’s foreign policy and has used its  podcast to promote scumbag-Soros’ Open Society Foundations. A chunk of the TDWG’s attention has focused on three countries—Hungary, Poland, and Turkey—that it accuses of becoming increasingly authoritarian and undemocratic...   https://www.judicialwatch.org/corruption-chronicles/soros-tied-grou...   

Diplomacy Alone Won’t End the Iranian Threat
By SETH J. FRANTZMAN
{ nationalreview.com } ~ Supporters of the scumbag/liar-nObama administration’s Iran deal have tended to argue that “diplomacy” is the only answer to the threats posed by Tehran... Asked about their Iran policies, the Democrats running for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination all stress the need to either re-enter the deal or refocus on diplomacy. “I would rejoin the agreement and use our renewed commitment to diplomacy to work with our allies,” loose lips liar-Joe Biden told the New York Times. “What I would do is negotiate — I would bring people together just as President scumbag/liar-nObama did years ago,” said Senator Amy Klobuchar at a Democratic debate last month. Senator commie-Bernie Sanders has said that the U.S. must strengthen diplomatic capabilities and join with other countries to “work out our differences through debate.”   The diplomacy-only track fundamentally misunderstands the logic behind having diplomacy in the first place. Diplomacy doesn’t exist in a vacuum; it is part of a country’s foreign-policy arsenal. When dealing with allies, it is the key to nurturing relations. But when dealing with adversaries, it has to be part of a more-holistic approach to work. The irony is that Iran’s leaders have had great success employing just such an approach to its adversaries, precisely because they understand that the West is afraid of war and that it has largely abandoned the idea of using force as a means to its strategic ends. Iran is happy to play the diplomacy game when that is to its advantage, but it has less-savory means of getting what it wants, too. It deploys military advisors through the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to countries such as Syria, where some 800 IRGC troops are now located, and where it has also recruited mercenaries from Pakistan and Afghanistan to fight for its ally, Bashar al-Assad. It funds Hezbollah and arms the terror group with precision-guided munitions. It transfers missile and drone technology to Yemen, and its intelligence officials have infiltrated Iraq to gain a stranglehold on that country’s politics. It isn’t shy about using military means when necessary, either. It has fired rockets at Israel, attacked Saudi Arabia with cruise missiles, used  drones against Israel, fired ballistic missiles at U.S. forces and used its militias to attack them in Iraq, and mined ships in the Gulf of Oman...   https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/02/diplomacy-alone-wont-end-the... 

Saudi-led coalition in Yemen reports killing 
Lebanese Hezbollah operatives near Sana’a
By CALEB WEISS
{ longwarjournal.org } ~ The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen reported that its airstrikes near the Yemeni capital Sana’a recently killed several members of Lebanese Hezbollah... According to the pro-Saudi Arabia outlet Al Hadath, coalition airstrikes killed “four experts of Hezbollah” east of Sana’a yesterday. Other outlets later picked up this report, with one adding that the Hezbollah operates included both Lebanese and Iraqi nationals. Al Arabiya, another pro-Saudi outlet, added that the two Lebanese members were killed in Ma’rib and al Jawf while the Iraqi members were both killed in Nihm. Quoting a Hadi government official, the government in Yemen backed by Saudi Arabia and its allies, Al Arabiya and Al Hadath report that there has been a “marked increase in Hezbollah activities in Yemen” since the death of Iranian Qods Force leader Qassem Soleimani. These claims have not been independently verified; though, these are not the first reports of Hezbollah operatives being killed recently in Yemen. Just last week, Muammar al Eryani, Yemen’s information minister under the Saudi-backed Hadi government, claimed that several other Hezbollah and Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) members were killed in recent battles in northern Yemen. While in June 2018, the Saudi-led coalition reported it killed 8 members of Hezbollah in airstrikes in the Houthi-controlled Saada governorate. Two months later, two other Hezbollah operatives were allegedly killed by Saudi-led forces in Ma’rib...   https://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2020/02/saudi-led-coalition...   

House Republicans unveil 'realistic' climate
plan focused on capturing carbon
from fossil fuels
by Josh Siegel
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and his allies presented the first plank of an agenda to address climate change Wednesday, focusing on using trees and technology to capture carbon emissions... The Republicans presented four bills as part of their proposal, a mix of new and old legislation that has already been introduced. “The one thing that unites us all as Americans is we do want a cleaner, safer, and healthier environment,” McCarthy said in a briefing for reporters. “The good news is in America, the ingenuity we have had, when we unshackle that, we are able to make that all happen.” The carbon capture package includes a bill, introduced Wednesday, for the United States to work toward a global goal of planting a trillion trees. It also features an expansion of a tax break approved by Congress in 2018 and signed by President Trump for companies that use carbon capture technology to trap carbon from fossil fuel or industrial plants. The new bill would make the so-called 45Q tax credit permanent, increasing the amount paid to companies and lowering the threshold of captured carbon to qualify for it. Another bill looks to boost research, development, and deployment of carbon capture technology for natural gas plants. “We have chosen to put a price on carbon, but doing it through incentives and actually doubling down on that,” said Rep. Garret Graves of Louisiana, the top Republican on the House select climate committee. He was contrasting the Republican preference for tax subsidies as opposed to a broader carbon tax that economists and many Democrats say would be needed to encourage widespread innovation away from fossil fuels."We've got to move forward in a fact-based, realistic approach, as opposed to something that may be more emotional," Graves said. Carbon capture, in general, is a concept supported by Republicans and Democrats. But current technology is expensive and not widespread...

How History Will View
Trump's Impeachment
  Hans von Spakovsky
 

The Senate has voted against impeaching President Trump, defeating two articles of impeachment by votes of 52-48 and 53-47. Trump joins two former presidents, Andrew Johnson and scumbag/liar-Bill Clinton, in being impeached by the House of Representatives before being acquitted by the Senate.

The House failed to produce credible evidence that the president committed any “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” or engaged in any action that justified his impeachment by the House, let alone his conviction and removal from office by the Senate.

Despite Democrats’ loss in the Senate, House Speaker liar-Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Reps. scumbag/liar-Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., are no doubt basking in the admiration of their liberal allies for their actions, and they are hoping that their attempt to damage the president in the eyes of the public will be successful in the 2020 election.

However, history is often an unforgiving critic. Historians in the future may judge them far more harshly for abusing the impeachment power in the Constitution. That provision was not intended to allow 285 members of Congress — a simple House majority and two-thirds of senators — to remove a duly elected president for partisan reasons or over matters of style, no matter what his margin of victory in the last election.

Impeachment was to be used only in the direst of circumstances to remove a president clearly guilty of such serious, substantial misconduct that he posed a danger to the nation, and who was clearly unfit to continue in office until the next election when the public could make its own choice.

House Democrats did not come even close to meeting that standard.

It seems highly likely that liar-Pelosi and company will be viewed in the same manner as historians now view the “radical Republicans” who impeached Andrew Johnson, and who came within one vote of convicting and removing him from office.

Republicans personally hated Johnson, who became president after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and they virulently disagreed with Johnson’s decision to implement Lincoln’s conciliatory policies toward the Southern states.

As Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen outline in “A Patriot’s History of the United States,” in inflammatory rhetoric reminiscent of that heard from some Democrats today, radical Republicans claimed that Johnson was a “wild-eyed dictator bent on overthrowing the government.” Schiff was just as inflammatory when he called Trump a “despot” and the type of tyrant the Founders feared, while Nadler called Trump a “dictator.”

Last time I checked the news, I didn’t see any stories about despotic activities by this president, such as a refusal to follow court orders or the abuse of federal law enforcement power to spy on and investigate political opponents. The latter is something only the prior administration did.

Liberals can certainly criticize the president for some of his policies that they may disagree with, but claiming he is a despot and a dictator is so over the top, so far from reality, that it helped destroy whatever credibility the House managers may have had at the start of the impeachment process. Their wild exaggerations made it pretty clear this was a partisan, politically driven impeachment.

Paul Johnson, in his book, “A History of the American People,” also records that during the impeachment proceedings, Johnson was subjected to “torrents of personal abuse” and other claims that Johnson characterizes as “nonsense.” Seem familiar? It should, because Trump was also subjected to “torrents of personal abuse” by House managers during the impeachment trial.

Included among the impeachment articles adopted by the House in 1868 was a charge that President Johnson had “challenged the authority” of Congress and had criticized Congress with “intemperate, inflammatory, and scandalous harangues.” Sounds an awful lot like the House’s claim in the impeachment resolution that Donald Trump “impeded” the House and engaged in “unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance” of Congress.

Furthermore, the Johnson impeachment charged that the president had unlawfully removed Secretary of War Edwin Stanton (an ally of the radical Republicans) and replaced him with Ulysses S. Grant. Although it was not in the impeachment resolution, scumbag/liar-Schiff and his compatriots spent an enormous amount of time going after the president for firing the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch (who was appointed by President scumbag/liar-nObama), as if that was an abuse of power. This despite the fact that ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the president. Once again, the parallels between the Trump and Johnson impeachments are eerie.

Historians almost universally condemn the Johnson impeachment as “rash, reckless, and unwarranted” as Schweikart and Allen explain. As Paul Johnson says, no “constructive purpose was served by this vendetta, and the only political consequence was the discrediting of those who conducted it.”

Now that the process is over, at least for now, it is hard to come to any conclusion other than that this impeachment, which Democrats started talking about doing as soon as Trump was inaugurated, was the result of personal and political “vendettas” against the president.

Given that some polls show that Trump is now more popular with the public than at any time during his presidency, Democrats may also end up suffering the “political consequences” of their abuse of the impeachment process and the “discrediting of those who conducted it.”

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.
