Kim Really Does Want to Meet with Trump – Asks for a Mulligan

by rickwells.us

{ rickwells.us } ~ Martha MacCallum has the surprising developments on top of the surprises we already saw from the White House… in the announcement that the summit with North Korea had been called off. It appears that Kim Jong Un may have overplayed his hand a bit, and is now trying to work his way back into a position where he could wind up meeting with President Trump. In a statement issued by the North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-Gwam, the North apparently sought to repair the damage done, stating, “We express our willingness to sit down face-to-face with the US and resolve issues any time and in any format.” Kim continued, “Our commitment to doing our best for the sake of peace and stability for the world and the Korean Peninsula remains unchanged, and we are open-minded in giving time and opportunity to the US.”…   https://rickwells.us/kim-meet-trump-mulligan/

Trump welcomes ‘productive’ statement from North Korea, says Dems ‘rooting against’ talks

by Brooke Singman

{ foxnews.com } ~ President Trump kept the diplomacy door open with North Korea on Friday… welcoming the regime’s latest “productive” statement and saying the two sides are still talking following the administration’s decision to cancel a planned summit with Kim Jong Un. Trump nixed the summit, which was slated for June 12 in Singapore, following threats from North Korea. But hours after the U.S. pulled out of the meeting, North Korea issued a statement suggesting the regime was open to talks. “Very good news to receive the warm and productive statement from North Korea. We will soon see where it will lead, hopefully to long and enduring prosperity and peace. Only time and talent will tell!” Trump tweeted on Friday morning…   http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/05/25/trump-welcomes-productive-statement-from-north-korea-says-dems-rooting-against-talks.html

When The liar-nObama Administration Became The Deep State

by J.E. Dyer

{ lidblog.com } ~ In early January 2017, then-President Barack liar-nObama, SHMOTUS loose lips-Joe Biden, and a small sub-group of the national security team… began their transition to what’s commonly called the “Deep State.” Based on the footprints they left behind we can tell that they took time from their real jobs of running the country, this proto-deep state planned, coordinated, and leaked a timed media burst of articles about Trump and Russia. Each of the stories was leaked to different outlets. Each story was published between the 10th and 12th of January. This was the turning point when the liar-nObama Administration became the deep state. At NRO on Tuesday, Andrew McCarthy came to an important conclusion about the Trump-Russia investigation. It has been increasingly clear that the investigation – to the extent we may call it that – started quite a while before 31 July 2016, the date long given for its formal launch. McCarthy suggests it began in the early spring, probably around the end of March. Dating the focused tracking of Trump personnel to that early period forces the critical conclusion McCarthy ends with... https://lidblog.com/obama-administration-deep-state/

Iran, Get Ready for the Battle Rial

by Mark Dubowitz & Richard Goldberg

{ defenddemocracy.org } ~ Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday presented the Islamic Republic of Iran with a stark choice… Either change or face “unprecedented financial pressure” in the form of “the strongest sanctions in history when we are complete.” The Trump administration has declared financial war on the Iranian regime. Given the seriousness of its currency emergency, it’s a good bet America will win. Iran’s economy is in crisis. Inflation is skyrocketing, banks are in turmoil, and Iranians protest daily against the regime’s ineptitude, corruption and foreign adventurism. The currency is collapsing. In 1979, just before the Islamic revolution, Iran’s official exchange rate was 70 rial to the dollar. Today’s official rate, 42,000 to 1, is only available to those with regime connections. Most Iranians have to accept less favorable terms on the black market…   http://www.defenddemocracy.org/media-hit/dubowitz-mark-iran-get-ready-for-the-battle-rial/

Not Eyeless in Gaza

by Michael Curtis

{ americanthinker.com } ~ It’s still the same old story, a fight for semantic glory. This time the fight is to define “proportionate.”… More familiar is the buzzword “disproportionate,” frequently and automatically uttered in meetings of United Nations bodies and by the majority of the “international community” when referring to the actions of the State of Israel and its citizens. Once again in recent weeks the UN Security Council in this fashion condemned the killing by Israeli forces of civilians during protests at the border fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip on March 30, 2018 and April 6-20 , 2018, that had erupted in violence. On May 15, 2018 the proposal in the UNSC condemned the “excessive use of force against unarmed civilians” after Israeli forces had clashed with Palestinian protestors in the Gaza Strip. The protestors, trying to breach the Israeli fence on the dividing line betweeen the Gaza Strip and Israel, burned tires , used fire bombs and stones. Israeli forces responding to the provocation killed 62 and injured more than a thousand. No Israelis were killed. International criticism focused on Israel’s “disproportionate use of military force.” All democratic nations and some of the moderate Arab nations accept the reality that Israel, like every other state, has a right to defend its borders…  https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/05/not_eyeless_in_gaza.html

Op ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ Is Now Op ‘Backfire Tornado’

by Mark Alexander: In the Rolling Stones’ hit song “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” Mick Jagger wails, “I was born in a crossfire hurricane. And I howled at the morning driving rain.” I have no idea what that means, but a counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign under the codename “Crossfire Hurricane” certainly justifies a lot of howling.

Let’s review. Last week marked the one-year anniversary of “independent” counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the fake Trump/Putin collusion delusion, sponsored by ludicrous and unverified opposition research provided to the CIA and FBI by operatives of the liar-Clinton /Putin/Fusion farce.

liar-Clinton’s charade prompted months of FBI and CIA investigations into the Trump campaign, followed by the appointment of Mueller to widen the investigation.

Despite having stacked his investigative team with 13 hard-core Democrats (some overt donors to liar-Hillary Clinton’s campaign) and zero Republicans, and having burned through 10 million taxpayer dollars (and as much in legal defense fees from those they’ve targeted), what Trump/Putin collusion has Mueller uncovered?

According to The New York Times — yes, The New York Times — “A year and a half later, no public evidence has surfaced connecting Mr. Trump’s advisers … or linking Mr. Trump himself, to the Russian government’s disruptive efforts.” Let that sink in.

Instead, Mueller’s “big fish” indictment was Trump’s former campaign chief, Paul Manafort — with unrelated business practice violations that occurred years before Trump was even a candidate. He also obtained a couple of guilty pleas from others who were only remotely connected to the Trump campaign and a bogus perjury plea from former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn (even former FBI Director James Comey told Congress he didn’t think Flynn had lied). But none of the indictments are even remotely connected to “collusion.”

Mueller has issued indictments for 13 Russians who plotted to disrupt the U.S. election in 2016 — not by swinging votes to one candidate or the other but by undermining confidence in the American electoral system.

For the record, the Russians have been trying to disrupt U.S. political stability since 1917, because that’s what socialists do.

Putin’s plotters have succeeded in their disruption goal beyond their wildest ambitions, thanks to a few rotten apples — most notably liar-nObama’s CIA Director John Brennan, the Deep State boss who’s at the root of the Trump collusion setup, the aforementioned James Comey, their enablers within the liar- Clinton campaign, and of course Mueller himself.

Currently, according to Mueller, Trump is not a target of his investigation, but he most certainly has been the target of Brennan and Comey. So when Mueller wants a conversation with Trump about something that didn’t happen, he should decline.

Despite the fact that the collusion narrative has collapsed, there will likely come other charges and indictments for infractions unrelated to Mueller’s investigative mandate in the months and potentially years ahead, as Mueller can keep his investigation open until he decides to close it — or is fired.

Despite the fact that the collusion narrative has collapsed, there will likely come other charges and indictments for infractions unrelated to Mueller’s investigative mandate in the months and potentially years ahead, as Mueller can keep his investigation open until he decides to close it — or is fired.

But according to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper (who lied to Congress in 2013 about the liar-nObama administration’s collection of data on all Americans), Trump’s concern about the counterintelligence campaign targeting his campaign “is hyperbole.”

Clapper claims: “They may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign, but, you know, the focus here, and as it was with the intelligence community, is not on the campaign, per se, but what the Russians were doing to try to instantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it. So if there was someone that was observing that sort of thing, that’s a good thing.”

Ask directly if government operatives were spying on the Trump campaign, Clapper said, “They were spying on, a term I don’t particularly like, but on what the Russians were doing. Trying to understand were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage or influence, which is what they do.”

Again, the CIA and FBI should have contacted the Trump campaign directly to help determine if the Russians were seeking to influence Trump, but there was already a presumption of colluding guilt.

Now, for certain, Russian efforts to undermine the integrity of U.S. elections should be thoroughly investigated — as has always been the case.

And objectively, there’s a very thin argument in favor of Clapper’s assertion that the investigation was justified, though highly irregular. However, with Brennan, Comey and some of their key investigative gatekeepers, “objectivity” was AWOL. They were heavily biased for a liar-Hillary Clinton victory over Trump and were colluding to use the power of their agencies to ensure she would defeat Trump, and in the unlikely event he was elected, ensure to ensnare him in the collusion trap they set.

Thus, President Trump’s concerns are fully justified, as was his call for a full investigation into the campaign probes.

Regarding Brennan’s politicization of the CIA, Trump’s social media staff summed it up: “John Brennan … has disgraced himself, he has disgraced the Country, he has disgraced the entire Intelligence Community. He is the one man who is largely responsible for the destruction of American’s faith in the Intelligence Community and with some people at the top of the FBI, Brennan started this entire debacle about President Trump. We now know that Brennan had detailed knowledge of the (phony) dossier. … He briefs the Gang of 8 on the Hill about the dossier, which they then used to start an investigation about Trump. It is that simple. This guy is the genesis of this whole Debacle. This was a Political hit job…”

Georgetown law professor Jonathan Turley (a Democrat) observed that, no matter how the Left and Leftmedia try to spin this operation, “You can tell a victim that this isn’t a mugging, it’s a forced divestiture, but this is a mugging. … I know of no precedent to support this.”

Not about to be content with this mugging, President Trump called Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats and FBI Director Christopher Wray and ordered an investigation into the campaign probes with a full report due to congressional investigators. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly was assigned to ensure that Congress receives the information it needs to fully investigate the probe.

According to Trump Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, the administration believes the DoJ’s inspector general should “expand its current investigation to include any irregularities with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s or the Department of Justice’s tactics concerning the Trump Campaign.”

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has referred the case to IG Horowitz, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has appointed a federal prosecutor, John Huber, to work with Horowitz to review the case.

And House Republicans have introduced a resolution calling for a special counsel to investigate the FBI/DOJ investigators involved in the Trump/Russia probe. Game on.

Moving forward, I would caution Republicans to choose their words carefully when broadcasting condemnations.

As I have previously noted, the corruption of FBI leadership and some high-level bureaucrats has cast a long shadow on all of the 12,484 special agents and 2,950 intelligence analysts in the FBI. But most men and women in the FBI, much as in the CIA, steadfastly abide by their oaths “to support and defend” our Constitution, not their preferential candidate, and they serve our nation likewise. They live up to the FBI motto: Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.

Indeed, most FBI agents, whose reputations and careers are being sullied, are deeply offended both personally and professionally by that corruption. According to confidential sources within the FBI, there are special agents who are appealing for subpoenas to testify about the extent of the Deep State corruption in the agency in order to clean it up.

Former District of Columbia U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova, who is well connected with rank-and-file FBI agents in Washington, says, “There are agents all over this country who love the Bureau and are sickened by Comey’s behavior and McCabe and Holder and Lynch, and the thugs like [John] Brennan. They despise the fact that the Bureau was used as a tool of political intelligence by theliar-nObama administration thugs.”

DiGenova places the FBI politicization plot squarely at the feet of Comey and McCabe on the inside, and Holder and Lynch over at the DoJ.

One well-placed FBI agent declared: “Every special agent I have spoken to in the Washington Field Office wants to see McCabe prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They feel the same way about Comey. They know that it wasn’t just Comey and McCabe in this case. That’s too narrow a net to cast over these guys. There’s a much broader corruption that seeped into the seventh floor at the Bureau. They ruined the credibility of the Bureau…”

Indeed, there are critical questions yet to be answered about the politicization of the FBI under liar-nObama.

But thus far, as was the case when liar-nObama politicized the IRS, having key high-level bureaucrats target conservative groups, nobody has gone to jail. The prospects of indictments for liar-nObama/ liar-Clinton political hacks in the CIA and FBI may be even more elusive.

Finally, allow me to share an award-winning example of Democrat obfuscation in rebuttal to Trump’s demand for an additional investigation.

Senate Minority schmoozer Chuck Schumer (D-NY) did a masterful job of turning this situation inside out: “That he would issue such an absurd and abusive demand based on no evidence shows just how little regard the president has for the rule of law.”

Seriously, he referenced “Rule of Law,” claiming there was “no evidence,” which is precisely the amount of evidence that led to the Mueller investigation.

clown-Schumer then added, “President Trump seems to have the terribly misguided view that the Department of Justice is there to protect his political interests and prosecute his enemies.” Ironically, it was Democrat Party leaders who weaponized the Department of Justice to take down Trump.

clown-Schumer finally ran out of hot air with this summary: “The president’s behavior is the kind of grossly autocratic behavior we’d expect in a banana republic, not a mature democracy.”

Actually, the FBI/CIA probe is what one would expect when banana republic autocrats are attempting to take down their opposition.

Mick Jagger’s song ends, “It’s a gas, gas, gas,” and more liar-nObama/ liar-Clinton FBI/CIA Crossfire Hurricane operatives just got doused.  ~The Patriot Post
