Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman Outs Himself 
as Source for CIA Whistleblower Complaint 
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ HPSCI Ranking Member Devin Nunes questioned NSC official Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman about whether he had shared the contents of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky with anyone outside the White House... In responding Vindman stated “two people”, and then named State Dept George Kent, and a person from the intelligence community. Then things get interesting. Vindman refused to name the intelligence agency because it would likely expose the CIA “whistle-blower”.This non-answer makes Alexander Vindman the source for the CIA “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella.  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/11/19/lt-col-alexander-vindman-outs-himself-as-source-for-cia-whistleblower-complaint-video/  
Impeachment Lesson: Cut Government
By Fletch Daniels
{ americanthinker.com } ~ This current impeachment theater is the equivalent of Caddyshack II, a sequel so dreadful that nobody is bothering to tune in. Even my liberal colleagues who despise President Donald Trump can’t be bothered watch... It’s as if everyone not named Chris Wallace knows this is a complete sham. The stock market yawned as it rocketed upwards. What we have is a parade of bureaucratic power players preening before friendly Democrats to complain that nobody listens to their sage counsel and that the president has the audacity to think he decides foreign policy. The biggest villain in this ill-begotten administrative coup sequel is loose lips liar-Joe Biden, whose corruption is so obscene that even ruthlessly friendly media can’t keep it from sneaking through. Hunter Biden sucked in dirty Ukrainian cash like he was hooked up to a beer bong, getting drunk on his father’s political influence. For proof of the damage, look no further than a rising Pete Buttigieg, who is now in the lead in Iowa.  Democrats think our national interests are items to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Win elections, become multimillionaires, complain about billionaires while offering to drink beer with the peasants. Rinse and repeat. The media reacted in horror when the phrase “I hired Donald Trump to fire people like Yovanovitch” trended on Twitter. The idea that a sentiment shared by nearly all rational-minded people would catch fire was inexplicable to the outraged media and the Twitter overlords. But this really gets to the heart of what is going on here and is the biggest lesson of the scumbag/liar-Schiff Show. The only way to drain the swamp is to cut the bureaucracy. That is accomplished by firing as many Yovanovitchs as possible. This story centers around the disloyal bureaucrats on the Ukrainian desk, but they are representative of the entire bureaucracy... https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/11/impeachment_lesson_cut_government.html  
Enough Calm, Where’s the Storm?
By Brian C. Joondeph
{ americanthinker.com } ~ For the past several years, most of us who have been following the seditious Deep State activities against President Trump and many of his close associates have been eagerly awaiting a reckoning... A presidential campaign, then administration, was spied upon by the previous administration, using fabricated domestic and foreign intelligence, with the willing assistance of the mainstream media. President Trump has been accused of being a Russian agent, a Putin stooge, and a traitor by high level executives of ex-President scumbag/liar-nObama’s justice and intelligence agencies. A two-year $30 million special counsel investigation, that we were told would unearth “mountains of evidence” of Trump-Russia collusion, was a big dud, exonerating the president of his supposed treason. Meanwhile these accusations and investigations have ruined the reputations and finances of many Trump associates. Now it’s on to so-called “impeachment inquiry” hearings, attempting to remove a duly elected president based on third-hand hearsay and disagreement with foreign policy approaches that are totally under the purview of the president, not the unelected administrative State Department apparatchiks. We are told by the mysterious and enigmatic Q, a military intelligence insider group feeding bits and pieces to the public about what might be going on behind the curtain, that a “storm is coming.” Pain has been promised for wrongdoers at some nebulous future point in time. We are now living in “the calm before the storm”.So far, it’s been way too calm and for way too long. As an outsider watching a steady parade of injustice and corruption directed toward the Bad Orange Man, I wonder if the predicted storm will really happen? Or if like the frequent predictions of a winter blizzard, we only get snow flurries and a breeze rather than a foot of snow. Instead of a reckoning, it seems the swamp is thumbing their collective noses at President Trump. Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, deep within the seditious coup, fired by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, supposedly under investigation, got a nice gig as a CNN contributor. Despite McCabe being one of the point men in spying on the Trump campaign, the Department of Justice has, “No immediate plans to prosecute former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.” Compare McCabe’s treatment by the Justice Department to that of a Trump campaign advisor. “Republican operative Roger Stone was found guilty Friday of all seven counts against him, including witness tampering and making false statements.”  According to the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General, McCabe gave, “False testimony under oath to the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility.” Stone make false statements to the FBI and faces 20 years in prison. McCabe makes false statements to the FBI and becomes a cable news talking head. Some storm...
Steve Bannon Says He Pushed For Alleged Whistleblower To Be Removed From 
National Security Council
{ dailycaller.com } ~ Steve Bannon said in an interview that when he was at the White House in 2017, he was involved in an effort to remove an intelligence officer suspected of being the Trump whistleblower... from the National Security Council due to concerns about leaks.  “When I was in the White House there was a number of people in the National Security Council — the named individual eventually got let go, I believe because people were suspicious, not me, but other people around him were suspicious about his leaking, and that’s why he was let go,” Bannon, who served as White House strategist  through August 2017, said in an interview with VICE published Friday.  The whistleblower, who is reported to be a CIA analyst, filed a complaint on Aug. 12 accusing President Donald Trump of abusing his office in his dealings with Ukraine. Bannon said he does not believe that the whistleblower needs to be identified publicly, but he did confirm his involvement in efforts to remove an individual now rumored to be the whistleblower from the NSC. “I don’t think the individual naming of the whistleblower is important, although there was a story in The Washington Times … that tied me to the efforts to get, at least, the gentleman who was named out of the National Security Council,” said Bannon, who left the White House on Aug. 18, 2017. “Is that true?” a VICE reporter asked Bannon.“The individual that was named, absolutely true,” he replied. Multiple conservative media outlets have identified a former NSC official who handled Ukraine issues as the possible whistleblower. The Daily Caller News Foundation has not confirmed that the individual is the whistleblower...
‘It Was Clearly Criminal’: How A Massachusetts Judge Allegedly Helped An Illegal 
Alien Escape ICE
{ dailycaller.com } ~ A Massachusetts judge, indicted for allegedly helping sneak an illegal alien out of a courtroom in order to avoid an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent... is opting to fight the charges instead of accepting a plea deal. Federal prosecutors charged Shelley Joseph, a Newton District Court judge, with obstruction of justice in April for allegedly helping an illegal alien sneak through the backdoor of a courthouse, allowing him to evade an ICE officer who was waiting to apprehend him. Instead of taking a plea deal that would allow her to avoid prosecution, Joseph is preparing to go to trial. The case has divided many in the Massachusetts legal community and has become a symbol of the growing tension between federal immigration authorities and local officials in liberal enclaves. Massachusetts has aggressively fought to restrict ICE’s ability to enforce immigration law in recent, a backlash against the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration.  The prosecution, nonetheless, is arguing that Joseph’s actions clearly broke the law. “We’ve heard rumors of, you know, judges doing this or that, I don’t want to identify them, but this was the first time we have come across an instance where, one, as alleged in the indictment, we thought it was clearly criminal, and two, we think we can prove it,” the U.S. attorney for Massachusetts, Andrew Lelling, told WGBH radio, The New York Times reported. The incident took place on April 2, 2018 when an ICE officer arrived at the Newton District Court to apprehend Jose Medina-Perez, an illegal alien from the Dominican Republic...  https://dailycaller.com/2019/11/17/massachusetts-judge-helped-illegal-alien/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=10955

{ theintercept.com } ~ In Mid-October, with unrest swirling in Baghdad, a familiar visitor slipped quietly into the Iraqi capital. The city had been under siege for weeks, as protesters marched in the streets... demanding an end to corruption and calling for the ouster of the prime minister, Adil Abdul-Mahdi. In particular, they denounced the outsize influence of their neighbor Iran in Iraqi politics, burning Iranian flags and attacking an Iranian consulate. The visitor was there to restore order, but his presence highlighted the protesters’ biggest grievance: He was Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, head of Iran’s powerful Quds Force, and he had come to persuade an ally in the Iraqi Parliament to help the prime minister hold on to his job. It was not the first time Suleimani had been dispatched to Baghdad to do damage control. Tehran’s efforts to prop up Abdul-Mahdi are part of its long campaign to maintain Iraq as a pliable client state. Now leaked Iranian documents offer a detailed portrait of just how aggressively Tehran has worked to embed itself into Iraqi affairs, and of the unique role of Suleimani. The documents are contained in an archive of secret Iranian intelligence cables obtained by The Intercept and shared with the New York Times for this article, which is being published simultaneously by both news organizations. The unprecedented leak exposes Tehran’s vast influence in Iraq, detailing years of painstaking work by Iranian spies to co-opt the country’s leaders, pay Iraqi agents working for the Americans to switch sides, and infiltrate every aspect of Iraq’s political, economic, and religious life. Many of the cables describe real-life espionage capers that feel torn from the pages of a spy thriller. Meetings are arranged in dark alleyways and shopping malls or under the cover of a hunting excursion or a birthday party. Informants lurk at the Baghdad airport, snapping pictures of American soldiers and keeping tabs on coalition military flights. Agents drive meandering routes to meetings to evade surveillance. Sources are plied with gifts of pistachios, cologne, and saffron. Iraqi officials, if necessary, are offered bribes. The archive even contains expense reports from intelligence ministry officers in Iraq, including one totaling 87.5 euros spent on gifts for a Kurdish commander...   https://theintercept.com/2019/11/18/iran-iraq-spy-cables/   
Turkey Sending ISIS Fighter Back to US
by conservativesociety.org ~ On Monday, Turkey made good on its promise to start sending captured terrorists back to their home countries. During a press conference last week, Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said... “Countries can’t just revoke the citizenship of such ex-terrorists and expect Turkey to take care of them; this is unacceptable to us and it’s also irresponsible. Turkey is not a hotel for foreign terrorists.” So far, there are around 20 people being sent back to France, Germany, Denmark and Ireland. There is one American on the list as well. The American, who is suspected of fighting for ISIS, was sent to Greece on Monday after requesting to be sent there instead of the US. Once he arrived in Greece, the country refused to let him enter and he was stranded in a buffer zone for a few days. After making an agreement with the US, the Turkish government has decided to extradite the man back here. In a statement issued by Turkey they said: “Upon the commitment of the USA to issue a travel document, necessary procedures have been initiated to send the foreign terrorist fighter to the USA.” A spokesperson from the US State Department has confirmed that they received reports of the US citizen but would not give any further information. 
Iran’s Quds Force and the Muslim Brotherhood Considered an Alliance Against Saudi Arabia
by James Risen  
{ theintercept.com } ~ Hey were hardly kindred spirits. In fact, they stood on opposite sides of one of the world’s fiercest geopolitical divides... Yet in a secret effort at detente, two of the most formidable organizations in the Middle East held a previously undisclosed summit at a Turkish hotel to seek common ground at a time of sectarian war. The 2014 summit brought together the foreign military arm of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, known as the Quds Force, and the Muslim Brotherhood, a sprawling Islamist political movement with significant influence throughout the region.  The  Quds Force represents the world’s most powerful Shia-dominated nation, while the Muslim Brotherhood is a stateless but influential political and religious force in the Sunni Muslim world. The Trump administration designated the Revolutionary Guards a foreign terrorist organization in April, and the White House has reportedly been lobbying to add the Muslim Brotherhood to the list as well. The disclosure that two such polarizing organizations on either side of the Sunni-Shia divide held a summit is included in a leaked archive of secret Iranian intelligence reports obtained by The Intercept. There were public meetings and contacts between Iranian and Egyptian officials while Muslim Brotherhood-backed Mohamed Morsi was president of Egypt from 2012 to 2013. But Morsi was forced from power in a coup supported by the Egyptian Army in July 2013 and later arrested. The regime of Abdel Fattah el-Sisi launched a crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood, and many of its leaders have since been imprisoned in Egypt or are living in exile. An Iranian intelligence cable about the 2014 meeting provides an intriguing glimpse at a secret effort by the Muslim Brotherhood and Iranian officials to maintain contact — and determine whether they could still work together — after Morsi was removed from power...
Exposing the Fraud of Socialism

People seem shocked that recent polls show millennials are enamored of socialism — an economic system that reasonable and educated Americans have long known is disastrous. They shouldn’t be; this has been a long time coming.

The latest survey by Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation shows that 70% of millennials are likely to vote socialist. Adding insult to injury, only 57% believe the Declaration of Independence “better guarantees freedom and equality” over “The Communist Manifesto.” The worst part of this is that it is real, not a parody piece in “The Onion.”

Now do you finally believe that our schools and universities, Hollywood and the liberal media are brainwashing our kids? Are you taking this seriously?

I’m taking it very seriously, which is why I devoted three of the 16 chapters of my just-released book, “Guilty by Reason of Insanity: Why the Democrats Must Not Win,” to discussing socialism and capitalism. I cite earlier polls showing this same disturbing trend concerning young people’s attitudes toward socialism.

A 2015 YouGov poll showed that 43% of Americans between 18 and 29 years of age had a favorable opinion of socialism and preferred it to capitalism. Then, in 2015, a Pew poll found that 69% of those under age 30 would be willing to vote for a socialist for president. Further, a Gallup poll revealed that only 45% of Americans ages 18 to 29 have a positive view of capitalism, while 51% have a positive view of socialism. No offense, but it’s like a wave of stupid has washed ashore.

Significantly, these kids are not only drawn to socialism but also repelled by capitalism — two distinct but related points. Their attraction to socialism partially stems from their aversion to capitalism. The leftist establishment has bombarded us for decades with socialist propaganda. Former Hillsdale College professor Burton Folsom notes that while America was founded on the idea of preserving individual liberties through limited government, many prominent American history textbook writers are strongly biased against America’s free market tradition and believe that America must be liberated from predatory capitalists. These teachings have now yielded an abundance of poisonous fruit.

A 2018 study by the National Association of Scholars showed that some 40% of colleges in the United States have no Republican professors. “The political registration of full-time, Ph.D.-holding professors in top-tier liberal arts colleges is overwhelmingly Democratic,” writes Mitchell Langbert. “Indeed, faculty political affiliations at 39 percent of the colleges in my sample are Republican free — having zero Republicans.” In the other 61% of schools, the ratio is “absurdly skewed against Republican affiliation and in favor of Democratic affiliation.”

It is astonishing that an economic system that has enslaved and impoverished nation after nation and was responsible for more than 100 million murders in the 20th century is portrayed as utopian, and that capitalism, which has liberated hundreds of millions from poverty, is depicted as evil.

The left works 24/7 to disseminate its destructive ideas. Chrissy Clark writes for The Federalist that Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman, two prominent economics professors from the University of California, Berkeley, have been instrumental in designing economic policy for Democratic presidential hopefuls Elizabeth dinky/liar-Warren and commie-Bernie Sanders. Despite their dubious calculations on such socialistic proposals as “Medicare for All,” the liberal media is working hand in hand with them to spread their propaganda — including the oft-repeated canard that the wealthiest Americans have the lowest tax rates. This type of coordinated effort, argues Clark, could “affect the way young people view economics for the rest of their lives.”

Here’s the point: Leftists have to lie to persuade people that socialism works and capitalism is evil. At some point, we must successfully make the case that the left must be judged by its policy failures rather than its supposedly good intentions. Here’s the other point: Leftists are seemingly more committed to their goals of fundamentally transforming America than conservatives are to preserving it.

One of the purposes of my book is to alert our side as to how urgent our situation has become and how critical the 2020 presidential and congressional elections are for us. Evidence abounds that many Americans are losing sight of the unique gloriousness of America’s founding ideas. I try to give patriots abundant ammunition to make our case for preserving these ideas and rejecting the insane ideas coming from the left, from socialism, to gender, to race, to abortion, to immigration, to the Constitution and much more.

If we are concerned, as we claim to be, about bequeathing to our children the free and prosperous America we have enjoyed, we better get to work.   ~The Patriot Post
