Ex-Special Counsel Pulls Out All of scumbag-Holder’s Dirty Laundry After Corrupt AG Attacks Barr

by Ryan Ledendecker

{ } ~ On the heels of special counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller releasing his report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election… we’ve seen a firestorm of liberals attack Attorney General William Barr with baseless conspiracy accusations. One might have thought these accusations would eventually die down. After all, there’s quite a lot going on in Washington, D.C., and you’d think liberals would move on to something else. Yet the attacks on Barr continue, even though dirty cop-Mueller did not charge President Donald Trump with any crime, be it related to alleged Russian collusion or obstruction of justice. On Saturday, a powerful ex-Justice Department official stepped up to the plate to take a swing at Barr’s good name. The ex-official in question was former Attorney General scumbag-Eric Holder, who held the post under former President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama. In a vicious tweet, the ex-attorney general brutally lambasted Barr’s handling of the dirty cop-Mueller report. “AG Barr has deliberately misrepresented the dirty cop-Mueller report. He has started examinations of the conduct of Intell/FBI personnel without a predicate-for political reasons,” scumbag-Holder wrote. “He is protecting the President.” scumbag-Holder went on to smear Barr’s reputation by claiming the current attorney general “is not fit to lead the DOJ.”However, federal white collar criminal defense attorney and Fox News contributor Solomon L. Wisenberg quickly turned the tables on scumbag-Holder, reminding the world if there’s one man who wasn’t “fit” to head the Justice Department, it would be scumbag-Holder, who oversaw a long list of disasters when he was attorney general. Did scumbag-Holder forget that his tenure as the nation’s top prosecutor was an absolute train wreck? Wisenberg didn’t. Wisenberg pointed to a list of infamous scumbag-Holder-era scandals, most notably the failed Fast and Furious program, in which the feds turned a blind eye to the purchase of firearms by alleged dangerous drug smugglers…


Doug Collins releases liar-Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe interview transcripts

by Diana Stancy Correll

{ } ~ Transcripts of closed-door interviews with former Attorney General liar-Loretta Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and others were released Monday evening… Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, entered into the Congressional Record the final nine transcripts from the Judiciary Committee’s investigation with the House Oversight Committee into potential bias in the Justice Department and the FBI. “The American people deserve transparency,” Collins said in a statement Monday. “They deserve to know what transpired in the highest levels of the FBI at the origin of the probe of President Trump’s campaign.”“Out of an abundance of caution, these transcripts have a limited number of narrowly tailored redactions, relating only to confidential sources and methods, non-public information about ongoing investigations and non-material personal information,” Collins said. liar-Lynch and McCabe’s interviews were included in the stash, along with transcripts of interviews with former FBI Principal Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s New York Field Office William Sweeny, former FBI chief of staff James Rybicki, and others. Over the past few months, Collins has released several interview transcripts. Among them were the interviews of former FBI agent Peter Strzok, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, his wife Nellie Ohr, former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, former top FBI official Bill Priestap, and former FBI General Counsel James Baker.


Mark Levin Slams Media for Being ‘Illiterate,’ Gives Them History Lesson of Past Presidents

by Jack Davis

{ } ~ Conservative commentator Mark Levin said historical illiteracy is one contributor to the news media… saying that it faces unprecedented trials during the administration of President Donald Trump. For example, when the Trump administration moved to ban CNN’s Jim Acosta after an incident during a media event last fall, National Press Club President Andrea Edney said, “The president’s personal attacks on reporters, especially on CNN’s Jim Acosta, during a Nov. 7 news conference were unprecedented and beneath the dignity of the office.” On Sunday, Levin, speaking on his Fox News show “Life, Liberty and Levin,” said such comments reveal that media members are “illiterate when it comes to history.” In his comments, Levin drew a distinction between what he termed the media and what he termed the free press. “The media is destroying the free press,” he said. “We have mostly a media — and we mostly have a media, not a free press because of the media. The media is destroying the press — not the president by calling out newspapers and journalists who are very thin-skinned and don’t like it.” Trump has battled media organizations throughout his presidency, and has used the term “fake news” to describe in accurate reports. On Monday, for example, Trump called out the mainstream media in a blistering tweet. “The Mainstream Media has never been as corrupt and deranged as it is today. FAKE NEWS is actually the biggest story of all and is the true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE! That’s why they refuse to cover the REAL Russia Hoax,” he said. Trump’s tactics have led writer Jill Abramson to dub the president “a master at media manipulation,” in an Op-Ed she wrote for The Washington Post…



Why the Palestinian Authority Won’t Collapse

by Efraim Inbar

{ } ~ The Palestinian Authority is refusing to accept any funds transferred from Israel because Israel has begun deducting the value of stipends the PA pays to terrorists and their families… commonly known as “pay for slay.” The PA’s refusal has added to its chronic budget crisis. International financial support to the PA has declined in recent years, and the Palestinian economy has deteriorated accordingly. As a result, the PA is now telling the world it faces economic collapse. The Palestinian strategy is clear. PA President Mahmoud Abbas is trying to scare Israel and the world community into believing the relative stability in the West Bank will come to an end, leading to chaos and terror. The PA leadership is emulating Hamas’s behavior by threatening that a humanitarian disaster will ensue unless more financial aid is rendered. Hamas has been playing this same game for years in Gaza. Israel and other international actors the United States is a sober exception seem to fall repeatedly for these Palestinians schemes. It is true that a certain level of economic prosperity in the PA is conducive to stability. Hungry neighbors always pose trouble. Unfortunately, poverty is often cynically employed by authoritarian regimes such as Hamas and the PA as a foreign policy tool to gain attention and financial aid. In fact, the Palestinian leadership needs a certain number of hungry subjects as a precondition for continuous international support. And Palestinian leaders are far less susceptible to economic difficulty than responsible leaders are. Palestinian elites eat well in any case. Abbas will soon be facing the “deal of the century” proposed by an American administration that is very critical of Palestinian policies…


Seattle getting more aggressive clearing homeless camps after a significant drug bust last week

by Seattle appears to be getting a little more aggressive with the clearing of tent camps after a drug bust at two camps last week… The city’s “Navigation Team” is clearing one today over concern about the amount of trash it has been generating. King 5 news reports: “Seattle’s Navigation Team, comprised of police, outreach workers and clean-up crews, began removing homeless encampments along the north side of Dearborn Avenue South between I-5 and 13th Avenue South on Monday. Will Lemke, spokesperson for the Navigation Team, said the cleanup would be a multi-day process, and teams would remove the camps over the course of this week… “We’ve been servicing this area with trash pickup, with litter picks, trying to keep trash down,” Lemke said. “However, we saw this place continue to experience a lot of negative impacts from trash.” Another factor which was the major drug bust which took place last week. Two different drug rings, with no apparent connection, were selling drugs out of separate homeless camps. From the Seattle Times: “Police arrested 10 people in connection with drugs rings in two Seattle homeless encampments that appeared to operate out of nearby residences, including a home in Beacon Hill and an apartment in the International District. Investigators do not believe the two drug networks — one related to a row of tents in the 200 block of Washington Street in Pioneer Square, the other connected to a large encampment at 10th Avenue South and South Dearborn — are connected to each other. Police published a statement about what was found in the bust, including weapons, cash and a pound of crack… To solve this issue the state need to build tent housing for the homeless.


FBI/CIA Blame Game as ‘Collusion Delusion’ Fails

Thomas Gallatin: As the faux Russia-collusion conspiracy has turned belly up, smoke of a real conspiracy — what some are calling Spygate — has begun to billow. Spygate is the descriptor for the willful attempts by members of Barack scumbag/liar-nObama’s deep state to subvert and then oust a duly elected President Donald Trump by knowingly pushing bogus allegations of Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia. Now, like rats fleeing a sinking ship, these deep-state players appear to be turning on each other.

At the heart of Spygate is that infamous and unverified Christopher Steele anti-Trump dossier, paid for by scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC and used by the FBI and Justice Department to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on members of the Trump campaign. Who knew what and when? A no-nonsense Attorney General William Barr is determined to get to the bottom of these troubling questions, and that has people scurrying for cover.

Two big names — former CIA Director scumbag/commie-John Brennan and former FBI Director scumbag-James Comey — are currently point the finger at each other, claiming that it was the other guy who pushed the dossier as legitimate. As former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy notes, “A dispute between the camps of scumbag-Comey and … scumbag/commie-Brennan broke out into the open — a dispute over which of them tried to force the dossier findings into the aforementioned intelligence-community assessment (ICA). This is a remarkable rift given that the dossier allegations in fact were not included in the ICA.”

Meanwhile, former FBI Counsel James Baker claims the reason the FBI alerted Trump to the unverified dossier in the first place was that it was already out in the media (because scumbag-Comey leaked it). The FBI was supposedly “quite worried” that scumbag-Comey might appear to be pulling a J. Edgar Hoover, using the dossier to blackmail Trump if he didn’t address it with the president and note that it had not been verified. However, scumbag-Comey also chose to lie to Trump by telling him at the time that he was not the subject of an FBI investigation.

But Baker’s biggest admission was that the FBI took the dossier “seriously” but not “literally.” If that were indeed the case, would that not demand the dossier be carefully investigated and verified before it was used as legitimate source material for obtaining a FISA warrant? FBI agents certainly presented it to the court as such.

Finally, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has also come out swinging against scumbag-Comey after the disgraced former FBI director suggested that Rosenstein did not have the “inner strength” to “resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump.” Rosenstein blasted, “The former director seems to be acting as a partisan pundit, selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul. That is disappointing. Speculating about souls is not a job for police and prosecutors. Generally, we base our opinions on eyewitness testimony.” Not when you are indeed a partisan pundit selling books, as scumbag-Comey most certainly is.
