scumbag/liar-nObama takes a subtle Presidents Day jab at Trump’s best argument for 2020

by Zachary Halaschak{washingtonexaminer.com } ~ Goodwill between presidents took a back seat on Presidents Day 2020. Former President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama appeared to take a rare political jab at his successor in a tweet Monday… that cast aspersions on President Trump’s claims that he deserves credit for recent economic gains, a key reelection platform for the 45th president. “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,” scumbag/liar-nObama said, including with the tweet a picture of his signature on the 2009 stimulus package. The tweet was a rare swipe at Trump by scumbag/liar-nObama, who has largely stayed out of the 2020 election cycle. scumbag/liar-nObama has yet to endorse any candidate seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, but his input about the economy nonetheless provides ammo to the entire field as they seek to counter Trump’s 2020 campaign, which has been touting record economic growth in the face of controversies such as the Russia investigation and impeachment. During the Great Recession, which began under President George W. Bush, the unemployment rate surged and peaked at around 10% in 2010 before it began a steady fall under scumbag/liar-nObama. The downward trend has continued under Trump. The unemployment rate as of January sits at a low 3.6%, with 225,000 new jobs added that month. Trump often touts the low unemployment numbers while on the campaign trail, but Democrats and other critics have pointed out that the decline in unemployment started while scumbag/liar-nObama was president. The Gross Domestic Product growth rate was -2.5% in 2009, scumbag/liar-nObama’s first year in office, before rebounding to 2.6% the following year. Since then, the GDP has increased each year…  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/obama-takes-a-subtle-presidents-day-jab-at-trumps-best-argument-for-2020?utm_source=WEX_News%20Brief_02/17/2020&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WEX_News%20Brief&rid=5261  

The Washington Post (CIA) is Very Worried About The Big Russia Lie Being Exposed

by sundance{theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ The media PR firm for the FBI and DOJ objectives is the New York Times. The media PR firm for the State Department is CNN. The media PR firm for the CIA is The Washington Post. This pattern has existed for several years… The Washington Post is very concerned about a growing possibility the investigation into the origin of intelligence community work may expose the fraudulent nature of the entire ‘Russian Election Interference Collusion-Conspiracy‘ narrative. Very concerned.The WaPo/CIA express concern by stating that President Trump is attempting to “rewrite history”; disingenuously skipping the part where Trump isn’t attempting anything. For more than three years President Trump has simply pointed out the obvious. It is is the media and the intelligence apparatus that set up a fictitious narrative for political needs. WASHINGTON POST – […] As his reelection campaign intensifies, Trump is using the powers of his office to manipulate the facts and settle the score. Advisers say the president is determined to protect his associates ensnared in the expansive Russia investigation, punish the prosecutors and investigators he believes betrayed him, and convince the public that the probe was exactly as he sees it: an illegal witch hunt… https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/02/17/the-washington-post-cia-is-very-worried-about-the-big-russia-lie-being-exposed/  

The Great Lou Dobbs Outlines a Moment The DOJ Went Wrong – Durham, FISC and Barr Seemingly Concur

by sundance{theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Lou Dobbs doesn’t suffer fools easily; he prefers to cut through the filibuster and get to the heart of the matter. That approach is one reason his show is highly successful. Within a similar outlook… Where we are now is the direct result of bad decisions where we came from. Going forward on the same corrupt path only takes us further in the wrong direction. This natural truism is the current dilemma for AG Bill Barr. During his show tonight Lou Dobbs takes the audience back to a very specific decision by the DOJ; a fork-in-the-road decision that put the department on path traveling further and further away from justice. The specific moment outlined was the DOJ decision to bury the intelligence leak by SSCI Security Director James Wolfe.However, amid all the chaff and countermeasures there is good news. When you realize that continuing forward on a path initiated by corrupt decisions only takes you further and further from the truth; you realize there are signs showing the DOJ is indeed reversing course back to the moment when the wrong path was selected…  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/02/17/the-great-lou-dobbs-outlines-a-moment-the-doj-went-wrong-durham-fisc-and-barr-seemingly-concur/

Airstrikes destroy IRGC Quds Force HQ, warehouse at Damascus airport

By SETH J. FRANTZMAN{jpost.com } ~ ImageSat International (ISI) reported on Monday evening that heavy damage was inflicted upon Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) sites… at Damascus International Airport on February 13. Airstrikes appear to have hit warehouses, a shelter, headquarters and infrastructure.  The airstrikes were reported in regional media, such as Turkey’s Anadolu. Reports indicated that seven people were killed, including four Iranian officers. The Anadolu report claimed the attack occurred after a cargo plane had landed. Syrian regime media blamed Israel and said that Syrian defenses had intercepted “hostile targets.” According to the ISI assessment, a series of satellite photos show damage to buildings around the airport. The damage included a headquarters and warehouse near a runway. In addition, another warehouse was completely destroyed and a shelter was partially damaged. In total, three different areas were struck. The last airstrikes before the February 13 alleged strike were in early February, when Russia accused Israel of endangering a civilian airliner. Iran has warned Israel that it will “regret” continued attacks and face a “crushing response.” Israel has warned Iran that it must not entrench in Syria, and that Syria could become Iran’s Vietnam. Last January, former IDF chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot said Israel had carried out more than 1,000 airstrikes in Syria against Iranian targets…  https://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Airstrikes-destroy-IRGC-Quds-Force-HQ-warehouse-at-Damascus-airport-617882    

scumbag/liar-nObama Personally Asked FBI to Investigate Someone on Behalf of scumbag-George Soros

by bongino.com ~ Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz made a shocking claim yesterday, telling Breitbart News that President scumbag/liar-nObama personally asked the FBI… to investigate an unnamed individual on behalf of leftist billionaire scumbag-George Soros.  While discussing the influence the White House has historically had over the Department of Justice, Dershowitz said, “I have some information as well about the scumbag/liar-nObama Administration which will be disclosed in a lawsuit at some point….about how President scumbag/liar-nObama personally asked the FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of scumbag-George Soros, who was a close ally of his.” Host Joel Pollak clarified with Dershowitz, asking him, “You said that scumbag-George Soros asked Barack scumbag/liar-nObama to have his Justice Department investigate somebody?” Dershowitz replied, “That’s going to come out in a lawsuit in the near future. Yeah.”  He insisted it is a common occurrence between Presidents and the Justice Department. “That’s not unusual. That is not unusual. People whisper to presidents all the time. Presidents whisper to the Justice Department all the time. It’s very common. It’s wrong, whoever does it, but it’s common, and we shouldn’t think that it’s unique to any particular president.” “I have in my possession the actual 302 form an FBI record of an interview, which documents this issue, and it will, at the right time, come out. But I’m not free to disclose it now because it’s a case that’s not yet been filed,” he continued. The scumbag/liar-nObama White House wasn’t the only place where scumbag-Soros seemed to have influence. Emails released from the State Department reveal the Hungarian billionaire also appeared to have access to then-Secretary of State scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton. In an email to scumbag/liar-Clinton, longtime friend Neera Tanden wrote that she recently had dinner with scumbag-Soros where he expressed he was “impressed” with his access to the then-Secretary of State. “I told him I worked for you in the primaries and he said he’s been impressed that he can always call/meet with you on an issue of policy,” Tanden wrote.  https://bongino.com/dershowitz-obama-personally-asked-fbi-to-investigate-someone-on-behalf-of-george-soros/

FBI Unlawfully Passed Classified Intel to Steele

Nate Jackson:  Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer hired by scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton and the DNC through GPS Fusion to dig make up dirt on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, is back in the news, along with Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI. And the circular corruption just gets crazier.

“A month before the 2016 presidential election, the FBI met Christopher Steele in Rome and apparently unlawfully shared with the foreign opposition researcher some of the bureau’s most closely held secrets, according to unpublicized disclosures in the recent Justice Department Inspector General report on abuses of federal surveillance powers.” So begins the latest revelation of deep-state corruption, courtesy of Eric Felten and RealClearInvestigations.Felten continues, “Much of the public reporting regarding this meeting has focused on the information Steele shared with the FBI — and the many reasons agents should have doubted its credibility. But largely neglected has been the opposite side of the equation — what the FBI told Steele. The Inspector General reports that the bureau revealed to him much of the highly classified information that it had gathered regarding alleged Trump-Russia links.” That included information on Trump campaign staffers Carter Page, George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort, and Michael Flynn — information known only by a select few FBI officials.“The FBI had every reason to expect Steele to share information with Glenn Simpson, whose client was the Clinton campaign,” Felten adds. And, indeed, “Shortly after the Rome meeting, Steele briefed Simpson on what the FBI had disclosed to him.”Oh, and the FBI paid Steele $15,000 to attend the three-hour meeting.Remember, it was Steele who leaked his dossier to Yahoo News’s Michael Isikoff. While the FBI soon cut ties with Steele for that leak, it still used the dossier to obtain surveillance warrants against Page. scumbag/liar-Clinton likewise used Isikoff’s report to hit Trump on the campaign trail.It’s like a playground game of telephone, only these are big players using each other to confirm bogus intelligence against a candidate for president. scumbag/liar-Clinton hired Steele, who made up dirt on Trump. Steele leaked it to the press, where scumbag/liar-Clinton could pick it up and use it. Steele also gave it to the FBI, which used it to surveil Trump’s campaign. The FBI gave Steele classified information regarding the investigations prompted by his dossier — and paid him to receive it.This sordid tale is easily, in our view, the biggest corrupt endeavor in the history of presidential campaigns. And we continue learning more as time goes on.  ~The Patriot Post
