Mark Meadows Begins Outlining FBI Corrupt “Sources” (Journalists) and “Methods” (Media Reports)

by sundance

{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ As details and documents are pried from the grip of FBI officials intent on hiding the institutional malfeasance, one corrupt issue has become increasingly clear… The FBI and DOJ intentionally leaked information to the media and then cited the subsequent media reports for their ongoing investigative purposes. Within this circular approach journalists became “sources” and media reports became “methods”. Thus, the FBI and DOJ are desperate to protect “sources and methods” because behind the familiar catch-phrase is an outline of procedural corruption. ie: “by the book“. Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC) is one of the congressional investigators who, with greater document release, is beginning to outline this approach. In a letter today to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Mr. Meadows points to new discoveries of how FBI Lawyer Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok were using leaks to the media in April 2017 to further the aim of eliminating President Trump… {READ: Letter from MRM to DAG Rosensteino DOJ https://saraacarter.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/9.10.18-Letter-from-MRM-to-DAG-Rosenstein.pdf }  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/09/10/good-news-mark-meadows-begins-outlining-fbi-corrupt-sources-journalists-and-methods-media-reports/

Trump Campaign Manager Says Anonymous NYT Author Is a Woman

by Matt

{ thepoliticalinsider.com } ~ The White House says they’ve narrowed down the identity of the anonymous official who penned an anonymous op-ed blasting the Trump Administration to twelve potential individuals… While those 12 names are not public, those placing bets on the identity of the writer are putting their money on Fiona Hill. While she’s the “favorite,” there’s still only a 14% chance she’s the author, according to the statistics from bets placed on PredictIt. Hill is the Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for European and Russian Affairs on his National Security Council staff. She is also on the Advisory Board of the Central Eurasia Project of the Open Society Institute in New York. The Open Society Institute is scumbag-George Soros’ grant-making network to fund political activities. If the author is indeed Fiona Hill, that would be consistent with the theory of former Trump Campaign Manager Michael Caputo that the author is a woman. He said as much last week, and reiterated that point again yesterday on CNN, telling host Fredricka Whitfield: “I’m fairly certain I know who it is. I have been going through the parlor games like everybody else has. I am also completely 100 percent certain that the person who wrote this is on the list of people who said they didn’t write it.” Caputo also believes that the source doesn’t work in the White House – which would be consistent with Hill being the author. “I don’t believe this person is in the White House,” Caputo said, but insisted the individual has to be pretty high up. “It’s gotta be a deputy secretary level or higher, otherwise the New York Times is misleading people.”…  https://thepoliticalinsider.com/caputo-nyt-author-woman/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=criticalimpact&utm_campaign=TPI_breaking_newsletter2_9_10_2018&utm_content=4b4ea4948726422aa6473c7b9fa19141&source=CI

Deadly Fire Exposes Millionaire’s Network of Secret Tunnels Under Washington DC Suburb

by MATT AGORIST

{ freedomoutpost.com } ~ Ever since the beginning of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, rumors have abounded of a network of secret underground tunnels in which children are trafficked to the elite in Washington D.C… Now, although there were no tunnels found under the Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria, a network of tunnels was recently discovered that makes these rumors not so far fetched. Daniel Beckwitt, a 27-year-old day trader who lived in Washington D.C. has recently been indicted on charges of second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. The charges stem from the death of 21-year-old Askia Khafra—who died digging tunnels for the millionaire under his D.C. home. On September 10, 2017, a fire erupted at Beckwitt’s suburban home as Khafra worked in the basement. Khafra would be unable to escape and the discovery of his charred remains would lead to an investigation that would reveal the network of tunnels some 20 feet below the basement. The secrecy involving the construction of tunnels sounds like something out of a Hollywood movie, involving blindfolds and misdirection. As Boston.com reports, a police report says Beckwitt told investigators how he tried to preserve his project’s secrecy when he brought Khafra there. Beckwitt said he would rent a car, pick Khafra up and drive him to Manassas, Virginia, where he had the younger man don “blackout glasses” before driving him around for about an hour. Khafra spent days at a time working, eating and sleeping in the tunnels. He had his cellphone with him, but Beckwitt used internet “spoofing” to make it appear he was in Virginia, according to Montgomery County prosecutor Douglas Wink… https://freedomoutpost.com/deadly-fire-exposes-millionaires-network-of-secret-tunnels-under-washington-dc-suburb/

Anonymous: Ye Shall Know Him by His Fruits

by DAVID CATRON

{ spectator.org } ~ The most surprising aspect of the furor surrounding the infamous unsigned New York Times Op-Ed, ostensibly written by a member of the Trump administration… is that anyone believes its author is a senior official. Assuming this person isn’t an employee of the Times, and it is by no means unknown for the Gray Lady’s journalists to fabricate quotes and attribute them to anonymous “officials,” the author of this hit piece is at most a mid-level staffer. Indeed, if this character is actually employed in the Trump administration, it is almost certainly at a level of insignificance verging on invisibility. How is it possible to be so sure? First, the editors of the Times are virulently anti-Trump. Their assurances about the prominence of this furtive functionary simply can’t be trusted. Moreover, as Phelim McAleer at Townhall points out, the nation’s “newspaper of record” has a long history of exaggerating the seniority of officials it quotes anonymously. He highlights a lengthy anti-fracking article that purported to quote “senior” oil industry insiders and federal analysts describing the extraction process as a colossal scam. It was eventually discovered that all the quotes had in reality come from an intern. Not coincidentally, the solipsistic voice and callow perspective that “Anonymous” brings to the Op-Ed tends to undermine the claim that it was written by a high-ranking official in any administration. Most senior members of the Trump administration are over 50 years old and many are well beyond 60. Yet, throughout the entire essay, there is an unmistakable thread of historical illiteracy and presentism that one would normally associate with a Millennial. This is evident in its very first sentence: “President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader.” Really. This means one of two things: Either “Anonymous” believes that the modern era began a couple of decades ago or that the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal, the OPEC Embargo, the Iran Hostage Crisis, the fall of the Soviet Union, the liar-Clinton impeachment, the 9-11 attacks, and the Iraq War were all relatively minor events for the relevant presidential administrations. It strains credulity to the limit to suggest that a senior official of the Trump administration would compose the hopelessly naïve sentence quoted above and permit it to be published in the New York Times… https://https://spectator.org/anonymous-ye-shall-know-him-by-his-fruits/?utm_source=American+Spectator+Emails&utm_campaign=16911b2420-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_09_10_08_13&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_797a38d487-16911b2420-104608113/anonymous-ye-shall-know-him-by-his-fruits/?utm_source=American+Spectator+Emails&utm_campaign=16911b2420-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_09_10_08_13&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_797a38d487-16911b2420-104608113

Mitch McConnell Likely Under Investigation By dirty cop-Bob Mueller Over Ties To Russia’s Hacking of 2016 Elections

by Andrew Simpson

{ dctribune.org } ~ It’s hard to imagine how life could get much worse for Republicans in advance of the 2018 midterm elections, but we here at DC Tribune think we might know of one… and it comes from the same source that’s been the scourge of the Trump administration since May 17th, 2017: The dirty cop-Robert Mueller Special Counsel investigation. And honestly, what could possibly be worse news for the GOP than to find out that one or more of their leaders were being focused on as part of that investigation? We already know almost as a matter of course that dirty cop-Mueller is looking into statements made in private between members of the House GOP leadership, joking about fellow Republicans and even the President being on Vladimir Putin’s payroll. That’s not the type of discussion that doesn’t make it into a final report about who knew what and when. But really, that is the only question that needs answering when it comes to complicity in Trump’s arrangement with the Russian government that was ostensibly finalized in Trump Tower: Who knew what and when they knew it… http://dctribune.org/2018/09/09/mitch-mcconnell-likely-under-investigation-by-bob-mueller-over-ties-to-russias-hacking-of-2016-elections/

scumbag/liar-nObama Reminds Americans Why Trump Won

by Thomas Gallatin: Well, he did promise he wouldn’t leave… Last Friday, Barack scumbag/liar-nObama again jumped into the political fray with a speech delivered at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Did anyone really believe he could actually sit back and keep his political opinions to himself, given that President Donald Trump has worked tirelessly to systematically dismantlescumbag/liar-nObama’s leftist legacy? Well, there may be some dummycrats-Democrats who are wishing that he had. Prior to the speech, scumbag/liar-nObama had only alluded to Trump in his public criticism, but on Friday the gloves came off as scumbag/liar-nObama called out Trump by name, charging him with sowing further division.

This charge of division was ironic given the fact that scumbag/liar-nObama himself was a highly polarizing figure whose popular moniker of “Divider-in-Chief” among conservatives was well deserved. Notably, whilescumbag/liar-nObama’s divisive rhetoric and policy actions benefited him, they came at the cost of decimating the dummycrats-Democrat Party.

Few can spin a yarn like scumbag/liar-nObama; indeed, it’s one of his greatest talents. But as is so often the case, scumbag/liar-nObama’s version of events never quite matched up to the reality on the ground.

Take the economy. For eight long years Americans suffered under a near-stagnant economy, much of it due to scumbag/liar-nObama’s leftist agenda that imposed greater government control over the economy via increased regulations. Now that the economy is booming because of Trump’s deregulation and the Republican tax cuts (which scumbag/liar-nObama ignored), the former president insisted, “By the time I left office, household income was near its all-time high and the uninsured rate had hit an all-time low and wages were rising and poverty rates were falling. I mention all of this just so when you hear how great the economy’s doing right now, let’s just remember when this recovery started.”

scumbag/liar-nObama also suffers from selective memory on scumbag/liar-nObamaCare — specifically how his and the dummycrats-Democrats’ massive tax, laughably titled the “Affordable Care Act,” was foisted upon the American people without a single Republican vote. He chastised Republicans for passing tax cuts that benefit all Americans by labeling that reform a danger to our democracy. scumbag/liar-nObama asserted, “Republicans in control of Congress and the White House, without any checks or balances whatsoever … provided another trillion in tax cuts to people like me who, I promise, don’t need it, and don’t even pretend to pay for them.”

Meanwhile, scumbag/liar-nObama promoted the dummycrats-Democrats’ newest hard-left policy proposal of Medicare for All, stating, “dummycrats-Democrats aren’t just running on good old ideas like a higher minimum wage, they’re running on good new ideas like Medicare for All, giving workers seats on corporate boards, [and] reversing the most egregious corporate tax cuts to make sure college students graduate debt-free.” No, it’s just socialism repackaged.

Back to division. scumbag/liar-nObama called out Trump for “capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years — a fear and anger that’s rooted in our past, but it’s also born out of the enormous upheavals that have taken place in your brief lifetimes.” scumbag/liar-nObama would more accurately have referenced himself here. Few politicians preyed upon and encouraged peoples’ fears as did scumbag/liar-nObama, as he ironically seems oblivious to having done in this very speech.

As an example, consider this excerpt from his speech: “This Congress has championed the unwinding of campaign-finance laws to give billionaires outsized influence over our politics. Systemically attacked voting rights to make it harder for the young people, the minorities, and the poor to vote. Handed out tax cuts without regard to deficits. Slashed the safety net where it could. Cast dozens of votes to take away health insurance from ordinary Americans. Embraced wild conspiracy theories, like those surrounding Benghazi, or my birth certificate.” He concluded, “Because, in the end, the threat to our democracy doesn’t just come from Donald Trump or the current batch of Republicans in Congress or the Koch Brothers and their lobbyists” but from people failing to vote for dummycrats-Democrats.

Actually, scumbag/liar-nObama’s speech served as a great reminder of why so many Americans voted for Trump. As Courtney Alexander, a spokeswoman for the Congressional Leadership Fund, observed, “Nothing would be better than the scumbag/liar-nObama-Pulosi team traveling the country nonstop until November, reminding voters of the failed scumbag/liar-nObama-Pulosi days of higher taxes and increased government spending.” Or as Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) noted, “The best explanation of President Trump’s victory are the ‘results’ of thescumbag/liar-nObama Presidency!”
