liar-nObama Operated Russian KGB-Style ‘Siloviki’ Govt Spy Ring on Trump Campaign


{ } ~ Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaign adviser who has had his life turned upside down and his financial situation destroyed by Mueller… and his evil gang of political operatives, spoke about the COUP and the abuse of power by the liar-nObama regime, utilizing the federal government as their weapon against American citizens. He and Carter Page, who is in a similar situation, were both Laura Ingraham’s guests. Speaking of the infiltration and attempted infiltration of the campaign by political agents of the liar-nObama regime, Caputo reverted to a common underlying theme in the plot to upend liar-Clinton’s opposition in the 2016, the Russia narrative. This time it had more to do with the similarity in tactics than the interaction. Caputo told Ingraham, “You’ve spent time in Russia, Carter and I both have. In Russia they call this “Siloviki,” the national security leadership that secretly spies on the entire citizenry of Russia. And here we are in the United States, with our own Siloviki underneath ‘president’ liar-nObama.”…



Trump Advisor Eric Bolling Attacks Jeff Sessions


{ } ~ Former Fox News host and close presidential advisor Eric Bolling took aim at Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a tweet Tuesday… Bolling’s direct shot at Sessions is the latest in a series of attacks from close presidential advisors in the media directed at the attorney general. The anger of these advisors centers on Sessions’ original recusal from the investigation of the 2016 presidential election and his unwillingness to curb or assist conservative lawmaker’s efforts to shed more light on the probe. Judge Jeanine Pirro, a Fox News personality and presidential advisor, similarly blasted Sessions Saturday night calling him “the most dangerous man in America,” saying, “The most of powerful prosecutor in the world, the man who holds the scales of justice in his hands, hides behind the coat tails of a Rod Rosenstein.”…



IAF commander: Iran launched 32 missiles toward Israel in early May


{ } ~ Israeli jets have continued to strike targets in Syria following the recent Iranian missile barrage against IDF posts in the Golan Heights… a senior Israel Air Force officer said on Tuesday. “We can assume that there have been strikes since the last events in Syria. We have maintained our freedom of action over Syria,” he said during the Senior Air Force Conference in Herzliya. Stressing that Israel will continue to carry out air strikes in the war-torn country, he said that Israel will continue to work with “determination” to thwart the entrenchment of Iran in Syria and the arming of Hezbollah. “The Iranian resolve in the region continues and we keep operating and disrupting below the threshold of war,” he said…

Human Rights Activist Files RICO Suit Against Fusion GPS Founders


{ } ~ A prominent human rights activist is suing two of the founders of Fusion GPS and several Venezuelan businessmen… under a statute usually associated with the Mafia. Thor Halvorssen, the president of the Human Rights Foundation, claims that Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, two former Wall Street Journal reporters who founded Fusion, engaged in a conspiracy to retaliate against him for blowing the whistle on one of Fusion’s clients, a Venezuelan power plant company called Derwick Associates. The two Fusion founders were hired to produce a dossier and a media campaign “to depict Halvorrsen as a pedophile, heroin addict, and embezzler of the Foundation’s money,” reads Halvorssen’s lawsuit, which he filed under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) statute…

Yes, a Drop in Global Temperatures, But…

by Jordan Candler: A recent editorial from a typically reputable conservative publication touted a sharp global temperature drop between February 2016 and February 2018. There’s no disputing the fact that records indicate a temperature drop on a global scale during that time. However, the editorial — the purpose of which was to lambast the nefarious mainstream media for purposefully ignoring this inconvenient fact — did not explain fully what is actually happening. Here’s why:

Global temperature drops are typical after El Niños, which naturally warm the globe. La Niñas do the opposite. Moreover, the last El Niño (2015-16) was exceptionally strong — a.k.a. a Super Niño. Therefore, it only makes sense that a significant global temperature drop would follow, as we’ve just registered back-to-back La Niña years. That being the case, the fact of the matter remains that global temperatures remain above normal two years after the last El Niño and above where they were two years after other El Niños. A higher threshold is seemingly being established following each Super Niño. Before 2015-16, the last one occurred in 1997-98. A pause ensued, but that baseline was higher than the average temperature over the previous 20 years. This doesn’t prove ecofascists’ rationale (not to mention justify their “solutions”) for so-called “climate change,” but it also doesn’t do conservatives any favors to borrow from the Left’s playbook by cherry-picking statistics simply for the benefit of aiding a narrative.

The cause may have to do with the immense amounts of water vapor that are released during Super Niños. These events result in a longer-lasting effect in Arctic regions years later, as tiny amounts of water vapor most affect temperatures where they are climatologically lowest and the air is driest. A glance at temperatures where most life occurs reveals that temperatures have returned to near normal, but the warmer polar regions are leading to the above-normal global temperatures, primarily during the coldest times of the year. It’s still very cold, but even slight warming there can skew the entire global temperature a few tenths of a degree higher. Regardless, global temperatures are still higher than they were after previous El Niños.

To its credit, the editorial in question does note that the latest temperature drop could be entirely meaningless. However, a little basic research would have precluded the editorial altogether. As meteorologist Joe Bastardi said in an email to The Patriot Post, “This is like saying you scored a couple of touchdowns and instead of being down 56-0 you are now losing only 56-14.” He added, “The point is that until temperatures return to or below normal, what is all the hoopla about? The other side can rightly point to a two-year post-El Niño record high.” The mainstream media should be criticized for how it handles reporting global warming. Conservative media should avoid falling into the same trap. ~The Patriot Post
