UKRAINIAN CORRUPTION IS SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE DEMOCRATIC PRIVILEGE

By Kelleigh Nelson

Only crime and the criminal, it is true, confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core.  Hannah Arendt

Ours is a government of checks and balances. The Mafia and crooked businessmen make out checks, and the politicians and other compromised officials improve their bank balances. Steve Allen

That is the problem with this rich and anguished generation.  Somewhere a long time ago they fell in love with the idea that politicians, even the slickest and brightest presidential candidates, were real heroes and truly exciting people.  That is wrong on its face.  They are mainly dull people with corrupt instincts and criminal children.  Hunter S. Thompson

The whistleblower who accused President Donald Trump of pressuring Ukraine’s president to interfere in the 2020 presidential election is a CIA employee who was detailed to the White House.  Exactly who detailed a CIA agent to the White House, and why didn’t the Secret Service expel the person?  The “whistleblower” has since returned to the CIA. 

The Secret Service provides physical security for the White House Complex, the neighboring Treasury Department building and the vice president’s residence.  They ensure the safety of the President, the Vice President, their immediate families, former presidents, their spouses, etc. Link  The Secret Service is a federal law enforcement agency under the Department of Homeland Security.  So, where was the Secret Service when a CIA Agent was in the White House spying on the President?

Article II of the Constitution gives the president sweeping power to conduct foreign affairs, negotiate with leaders of other nations, make demands or offer promises.  The Constitution does not grant the power of review, approval or disapproval to spies or other unelected officials in the executive branch.  A constitutional-law attorney’s analysis of the Trump phone call exposes the fraudulence of this entire charade.

Whistleblower Law Firm

Trump attorney Jay Sekulow commented on the “whistleblower” complaint alleging President Trump urged Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to probe former Vice President Joe Biden.  The complaint was filed on rumors and riddled with gossip and blatant falsehoods; the whistleblower stated he had no firsthand knowledgeResearch by Sekulow and the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) indicates that dirty cop James Comey planted spies inside the White House.

Sekulow called the probe into alleged Trump wrongdoing a “faux investigation” over something that would not be admitted in court, hinting at a conspiracy because the complaint appears to have been “written by a law firm.” 

The whistleblower’s lawyer, Andrew Bakaj interned for Schumer in the spring of 2001 and for Hillary Clinton in the fall of the same year, according to Bakaj’s LinkedIn page. More recently, Bakaj has worked as an official in the CIA and Pentagon and specializes in whistleblower and security clearances in his legal practice.

Bakaj told the Times that “any decision to report any perceived identifying information of the whistle-blower is deeply concerning and reckless, as it can place the individual in harm’s way.”  Doubtful that this CIA agent would undergo the same treatment as Edward Snowden, Julian Assange or William Campbell.

The whistleblower sprinkles throughout his document footnotes referring to a publication with the initials OCCRP. One guess who funds OCCRP, George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.  Soros’s dirty money is all over this story.

The ICWPA Law Changed

The original Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA) defined the parameters of an “urgent concern” complaint as an abuse or violation of law “relating to the funding, administration, or operations of an intelligence activity involving classified information, but does not include differences of opinions concerning public policy matters.”  The president’s conversation with a foreign leader does not seem to fall under this whistleblower definition. 

However, a week before this whistleblower’s hearsay document allegedly prepared by his CIA lawyers, Pelosi’s Congress passed a bill changing the whistleblower law to include “hearsay.” 

The Federalist’s Sean Davis discovered that the intel community secretly changed the rules governing whistleblowers, including amending the required form, in order to allow 2nd hand information to suffice. This happened just days before the Trump-Ukraine whistle-blower filed his complaint.

Isn’t that just too convenient? 

CIA Director Gina Haspel

Just who would know about the ICWPA changes?  Why the CIA Director of course. 

Upon her nomination for Director by President Trump, more than 50 former senior U.S. government officials, including six former CIA Directors and three former directors of national intelligence signed a letter supporting her nomination.  They included former Directors of the CIA, John Brennan, Leon Panetta and Michael Morell, former Directors of the NSA and CIA Michael Hayden, and James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence.

A group of 109 retired generals and admirals signed a letter expressing “profound concern” over Haspel’s nomination due to her record and alleged involvement in the CIA’s use of torture and the subsequent destruction of evidence. 

In 2013, John Brennan, then the director of Central Intelligence, named Haspel as acting Director of the National Clandestine Service, which carries out covert operations around the globe.  However, she was not appointed to the position permanently due to criticism about her involvement in the Rendition, Detention and Interrogation program.

Brennan called on an unlimited number of deep state spies to use the new, secretly altered whistleblower complaint form to report Trump.  On September 28, 2019, he tweeted, “A reminder to federal officials: There is no limit on the number of individuals who can use the whistleblower statute. If you think you were involved in unlawful activity as a result of a directive from Mr. Trump or someone doing his bidding, now is the time to report it.” 

Bidens and Ukraine

Hunter Biden, that upstanding and righteous son of former VP and Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden certainly has a jaded and nefarious past.  His older brother, Beau Biden, died of cancer in May of 2015.  Hunter divorced his wife, mother of his three children, and moved in with his deceased brother’s wife, Hallie, for three years before their separation. 

A U.S. official told NBC News that Hunter Biden was kicked out of the Navy Reserve in 2014 after he failed a drug test which showed positive for cocaine.  The Wall Street Journal first reported the incident.

A couple months later, Hunter Biden was on the Board of the largest gas and oil company in the Ukraine, Burisma Holdings, making $50,000 a year, an exorbitant amount for a Board member at any company.  The largest oil and gas company hired a practicing drug addict only a few months after the addict was removed from the U.S. Navy for doing cocaine.  This makes no sense unless this individual was the son of the Vice President of the U.S., Joe Biden. 

In 2006, Ukrainian prosecutor Victor Shokin, in his investigation of corruption involving Burisma Holdings, a natural gas company, identified Hunter Biden as the recipient of over $3 million from the company.  Joe Biden didn’t want this corruption exposed, so as the VP of the U.S., using loan guarantees of a billion dollars as hostage, he demanded the Ukraine fire Victor Shokin, and then he bragged about doing this at the Council on Foreign Relations.  He said he told Ukrainian President Poroshenko and Prime Minister Yatsenyuk, “We’re not giving you the billion unless you fire Shokin.”  Ultimately, he was fired. 

The well-heeled Biden Democratic socialist family has problems, especially with drugs, when father Joe is allegedly anti-drug.  Like her brother, Ashley Biden allegedly had problems with cocaine and marijuanaCaroline Biden, daughter of Joe Biden’s financier brother James Biden, dodged jail despite a $100K credit card scam. 

Hunter Biden, Chris Heinz and Devon Archer

According to a Time’s article, in May 2014, David Leiter, a former Senate chief of staff to Secretary of State John Kerry, signed on to work as a lobbyist for Burisma about a week after Biden announced he was joining the company.

Included was a second new board member, Devon Archer, a Democratic bundler and former adviser to John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign. Both Archer and Hunter Biden have worked as business partners with Kerry’s son-in-law, Christopher Heinz, the founding partner of Rosemont Capital, a private-equity company. 

The three friends, Hunter Biden, Chris Heinz and Devon Archer established a series of related LLCs. The trunk of the tree was Rosemont Capital, the alternative investment fund of the Heinz Family Office. 

Joe Biden and John Kerry negotiated sensitive and high-stakes deals with foreign governments, Rosemont entities secured a series of exclusive deals often with those same foreign governments.  Profitable deals were struck with foreign governments on the heels of crucial diplomatic missions carried out by their powerful fathers.

Often those foreign entities gained favorable policy actions from the United States government just as the sons were securing favorable financial deals from those same entities.  There is even a huge China connection via the Thornton Group run by infamous mobster Whitey Bulger’s nephew, James Bulger. 

See the NY Post article by Peter Schweizer, author of Secret Empires.

Democrats and Ukraine

Ex-lobbyists won’t be indicted for Ukraine work, including Tony Podesta’s firm, the Podesta Group, and Mercury LLC.  The question facing government investigators was whether the Podesta Group and Mercury knew their work for the Ukrainian nonprofit was in fact being directed by the Ukrainian government. Podesta and former Minnesota Republican Congressman Vin Weber, Council on Foreign Relations member and Aspen Institute Trustee, violated a law that requires U.S. lobbyists for foreign governments to register as foreign agents and disclose their work to the DOJ. 

Obama White House counsel Greg Craig was acquitted in another case stemming from the probe into whether a group of Washington consultants improperly hid from U.S. authorities their work for the Ukrainian government around 2012. 

In 2013 Ukrainian Igor Pasternak held two different fund raisers for Rep. Adam Schiff asking for contributions between $1,000 and $2,500.  Pelosi and Loretta Sanchez have also used Pasternak.  He is an arms dealer and has sold arms in places like Syria

In the WSJ analysis of Clinton Foundation disclosures, Ukraine became a vast pool of U.S. taxpayer-funded “aid” that poured into that long-corrupt nation and then saw piles of kickbacks returned to powerful and politically-connected recipients.  Joe Biden grabbed some of that Ukraine stash for his family but chances are it wasn’t anywhere near what the Clintons did – and all with the blessing of President Obama.  Between 1999 and 2014, Ukraine leads in contributions to the Clinton Foundation by individuals of donating more than $50,000. 

Meanwhile, Paul Manafort rots in prison.

DOJ Press Release

The mainstream media is not telling America that the DOJ press release issued the day the transcript of the President’s conversation became public, makes explicit that the president never spoke with AG Barr about having Ukraine investigate anything relating to former VP Biden or his son or asking him to contact Ukraine on any other matter…including the fact that the AG has not communicated at all with the Ukraine. 

The press release also contains the fact that the DOJ team led by U.S. Attorney John Durham is separately exploring the extent to which a number of countries, including Ukraine, played a role in the counter-intelligence investigation directed at the 2016 Trump campaign.  Certain Ukrainians who are not members of the government have volunteered information to Mr. Durham, which he is evaluating. 

In Andrew McCarthy’s new book, Ball of Collusion, he suggests that during the 2016 campaign, the FBI tried to get evidence from the Ukrainian government officials against Mr. Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, to pressure him into cooperating against Mr. Trump. Link

Conclusion

The left’s hatred for President Trump has become psychotic to the point where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling for impeachment proceedings against President Trump despite the fact there are no grounds.  Pelosi is also claiming, without evidence, that Russia had a hand in the Trump-Ukraine call.

Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) is incensed with the lies told by Adam Schiff regarding President Trump’s Ukrainian phone call, that he has introduced a motion to condemn and censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) for performing a fabricated conversation between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  Schiff did this during his opening statement at a panel hearing the morning of September 26th, 2019. 

Biden’s presidential campaign made an extraordinary request to executives of top news channels on Sunday, September 29th, asking them to no longer book Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, on their programs. 

As New York City Mayor, Giuliani took on the mob.  The mainstream media Democratic comrades may acquiesce to Biden’s request, but no one will ever muzzle a scrapper like Rudy Giuliani.

FIFTY-FIVE YEARS OF MAINSTREAM MEDIA LIES

In the past 55 years, media has gone from lies of omission (Douglas Edwards and Walter Cronkite) to outright falsehoods about public figures they disdain as treacherous to the elites’ globalist agenda. Prime targets of the media are President Trump and Justice Kavanaugh.

By Kelleigh Nelson

When the Supreme Court moved to Washington in 1800, it was provided with no books, which probably accounts for the high quality of early opinions.  Robert Jackson, former Supreme Court Associate Justice

Once the Supreme Court in 1973 decided that infanticide could be legal, it not only ended America’s ‘inalienable right to life,’ it threw the Golden Rule right off the shores of this continent. Actor Michael Moriarty

I don’t think we need political activists on the Supreme Court or any other level of court.  Dick Mountjoy, Republican, California State Senate

Recently Rush Limbaugh was talking about the latest lies by the NYTs against Justice Kavanaugh, and people were calling in asking what to do.  I know Limbaugh knows about the 1964 Supreme Court case, NYTs v. Sullivan because he’s spoken about it before; yet he never mentioned it.  This was the 1964 decision by the liberal Warren Court, the same court who eliminated prayer from our schools in 1962, and has caused a precipitous decline in academic achievement, a rise in out of wedlock pregnancies, a rise in drug use, a rise in juvenile crime and deterioration in student behavior.  

The 9-0 decision in NYTs v. Sullivan should be overturned as it has allowed the mainstream media to lie with impunity about government officials and later public figures for over 55 years, and today the result is just as heinous for our society as the 1962 Engel v. Vital decision.  There is no truth from mainstream media, only propaganda.

The landmark U.S. Supreme Court case, New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254, 84 S. Ct. 710, 11 L. Ed. 2d 686 (1964), extended the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech to libel cases brought by public officials. The Supreme Court sought to encourage public debate by changing the rules involving libel that had previously been the province of state law and state courts.

It was Justice Brennan who created the “right to be wrong,” the speech and press rule stipulating that even false statements about public officials should be entitled to protection under the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the Constitution of the United States unless “actual malice” could be demonstrated.

In order to prove libel, a “public official” must show that the newspaper acted “with ‘actual malice’ that is, with knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard” for truth.  And just how does one prove that?  The mere fact that the federal government via the Supreme Court removed states’ rights for libel and slander in the NYTs ruling and follow-up cases is what Justice Clarence Thomas believes “were policy-driven decisions masquerading as constitutional law.”

Again, to prove actual malice under the Sullivan decision, a libel plaintiff must show that the writer knew the disputed statement was false or had acted with “reckless disregard.” That second phrase is also a term of art. The Supreme Court has said that it requires proof that the writer entertained serious doubts about the truth of the statement.

In the past 55 years, media has gone from lies of omission (Douglas Edwards and Walter Cronkite) to outright falsehoods about public figures they disdain as treacherous to the elites’ globalist agenda.  Prime targets of the media are President Trump and Justice Kavanaugh.

Socialists Seek to Impeach Justice Kavanaugh

Ridiculous as it may seem to law abiding Americans, the socialist left now believes you are guilty via accusation if you are a Republican or conservative icon.

Elizabeth Warren tweeted, “Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.” Kamala Harris tweeted, “Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.”  These attorneys accuse the Justice of lying, yet there isn’t a scintilla of proof regarding the accusations.

Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings were not even believed by Ford’s best friend, Leland Kaiser who was pressured by Ford’s allies to change her story.  Kaiser was threatened regarding cooperation and told if she didn’t cooperate, “bad things would happen to her.”  Keyser’s son Alex Beckel and her former husband Bob Beckel, a prominent Democrat, are both on record stating that she “was pressured by Blasey Ford allies to lie during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings about the incident.”

The entire “rush to judgement” circus was brought forth by Diane Feinstein.  Yet, we never saw Eric Holder impeached for his gun running, or Hillary for Benghazi, or Ted Kennedy for leaving Mary Jo Kopechne to die in his car off Chappaquiddick Bridge.  Liberal icons rarely suffer for misdeeds.

The socialist left uses the same modus operandi every single time they make accusations, and then they go to their comrades in the mainstream media to spew their lies with impunity, thanks to the 1964 Supreme Court decision.  This is why there is a massive decline in the trust of American media.

The New York Times Piece

Robin Pogrebin, a culture reporter for The New York Times, and Kate Kelly, a Wall Street reporter for the same paper, got together to write The Education of Brett Kavanaugh.  They debuted their new book in a NYTs article wherein they left out the pertinent information related in their book that the woman they claimed was assaulted by Kavanaugh had brushed away this claim, had no recollection of such a claim, and had refused to speak with them. 

Pogrebin and Kelly’s New York Times piece also failed to tell us that their source, Max Stier, had been Bill Clinton’s lawyer. Kavanaugh had worked for Ken Starr on impeachment while Stier had worked to defend Clinton against impeachment.  The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway noted in a piece that during those proceedings Stier had “worked closely with David Kendall,” who would later defend Hillary Clinton against allegations of illegally handling classified information.

In addition to defending the Clintons during Whitewater, Stier also married U.S. Attorney Florence Yu Pan.  Pan was a Democrat donor who was nominated for a federal judgeship under Barack Obama.  The Republican Senate blocked the appointment.  Payback is always behind the scenes.

And once again, shortly after Pogrebin and Kelly debuted an article promoting their book with another freshman year sexual allegation against Kavanaugh, three 2020 Democrats called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment. 

As Daniel Greenfield said in a recent article, “The manufactured Kavanaugh scandals are subsidiary to the manufactured Trump scandals.”

Liberal Hacks Blame NYT’s Editors

President Trump said Justice Kavanaugh should sue both the New York Times and the authors of the article debuting their attack book on Justice Kavanaugh.  But they quickly covered their backsides by appearing on several talk shows and blaming the editors of the newspaper. 

Most likely they were told they had to clear their names and claim their article had been edited and left out an important part.  Personally, I don’t believe this for one minute, but the Times realizes they can’t be sued if they claim it was an oversight. They had the women appear on mainstream media and claim it was an error.  The Times put out a correction the Monday after the initial article appeared stating, “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.”

Both reporters denied that they deliberately intended to mislead anyone and that the editors removed the piece because it had the woman’s name in it, which the Times is loath to use.  In doing so, they “inadvertently” removed the rest of the statement. 

The two authors were asked on one program if they hadn’t read the edited copy and they answered that they thought they did, but obviously if they did, they liked the way it read. 

These women escaped being sued by backtracking quite quickly, otherwise both they and the Times would have easily been sued for “actual malice.”

Conclusion

The leftwing media didn’t make a mistake.  Their attack on Kavanaugh was purposeful and vitriolic.  They want the President destroyed, and they want other conservative judges to know what it will cost them to be appointed by President Trump.  There really is no journalism at The New York Times.  Their reactionary politics and attacks on the truth itself are disturbingly common.

Mainstream media and their socialist ilk scream impeachment…impeachment of our President and of Justice Kavanaugh.  It’s time we start screaming that NYTs v. Sullivan must be overturned and libel laws returned to the states!

WILL JUSTICE BE SERVED OR WILL AG BARR PROTECT THE DEEP STATE

By Kelleigh Nelson

A document was drafted in the State Department in July 1946 by an official named Samuel Klaus. This indicated that there were then 20 alleged Soviet agents, 13 alleged Communists, about a dozen sympathizers, and about 75 suspects in the department, according to the FBI.  M. Stanton Evans

The tyranny of Communism is as old as the Pharaohs and the Pyramids – that the State stands above all men and their individual aspirations. Robert Kennedy

The Communists were interested in getting into key positions as union officers, statisticians, economists, etc., in order to utilize the apparatus of the unions to promote the cause of revolution.  John T. Flynn The Roosevelt Myth 1948

On Thursday, September 19th, Lou Dobbs took several minutes at the end of his program to excoriate AG Barr for spending time in Congress promoting anti-gun legislation.  It was a magnificent monologue regarding our 2nd Amendment rights and AG Barr’s lack of priorities.  Dobbs complained about it “taking so long” to have transparency “that we were led to believe would be there.” He described the Justice Department as a “dumping ground” where “truth” goes to die.  Unfortunately, I cannot link to it because the last portion was removed from every posted video. 

We are looking at totalitarianism from the Democrat Party and a good portion of the Republicans who are Deep State insiders.  M. Stanton Evans quote from 1946 exposed how many communists we had 73 years ago.  Today, they blatantly dominate the Congress and mainstream media.

Innocents Suffer

It’s now beyond any reasonable doubt that Obama administration minions launched an all-out effort to destroy, first, President Trump’s presidential campaign and, when that failed, his presidency. The only question is, knowing the truth, will the Justice Department charge these people with crimes?

General Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort and George Papadopoulos have all suffered at the hands of Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissman mainly because they were supporters and friends of Donald J. Trump.  All were caught in the crosshairs of the plot to bring down President Trump.

General Michael Flynn

General Mike Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, is demanding exculpatory evidence from the DOJ via the Brady doctrine which requires that the prosecution must turn over all exculpatory evidence to the defendant in a criminal case. Exculpatory evidence is evidence that might exonerate the defendant.  Link

Sidney Powell has catalogued 40 categories of evidence the government has refused to turn over. In her motion to compel, she seeks a court order requiring federal prosecutors to provide the withheld evidence under Brady and its progeny.  Essentially, Powell asked Judge Emmett Sullivan to make the government show cause as to why it should not be held in contempt.  Judge Sullivan says that duty exists even though Flynn has pleaded guilty.

The General was set up by Comey, McCabe, Strzok and others who were complicit. Link  General Flynn’s Motion to Show Cause and Compel is now unsealed!  He needs to be exonerated!

Roger Stone

In January of this year, Roger Stone and his wife suffered through a paramilitary-style raid at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  The grand jury indicted Stone on seven counts of lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstructing a congressional investigation. Link Roger is a longtime friend of our President.

My friend Kitty Werthmann who escaped Hitler in Austria said, “This is the Gestapo.”  This pre-dawn raid was done purposely for media consumption, for a negative impact against our President who is a 40-year friend of Roger Stone’s, and to instill fear not only in those who would work for an outsider like Donald Trump, but also to let the American public know the full power of the FBI. The out-of-control Nazi-esque behavior by the Department of Justice and the FBI needs to be curtailed, but I see no end to it.

I believe Stone is innocent.

Michael Cohen

Michael Cohen caved to Mueller and Weissman’s demands because he was told his wife would end up in prison if he didn’t do what he was told, this according to a longtime friend and employee of the Trump organization.  Guilty of some crimes, but raided and charged because he was one of President Trump’s attorneys.

Paul Manafort

Paul Manafort has lost everything via the state and federal charges against him, and again, an unnecessary FBI early dawn raid on him and his wife occurred at their home.  He was convicted last year of hiding millions of dollars from the IRS that he had earned as a foreign lobbyist for a pro-Russian politician in Ukraine and for lying on paperwork to obtain millions in mortgage loans.  I have to wonder how many millions of dollars the Podesta brothers and Joe and Hunter Biden have hidden away regarding their Ukrainian relationships of which they’ll probably never be charged.  (Watch the video of Rudy Giuliani and Chris Cuomo regarding the Bidens).

George Papadopoulos

In late 2017, George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to making false statements to FBI agents relating to contacts he had with agents of the Russian government while working for the Trump campaign.  He was brought down by Joseph Mifsud who was introduced to him by an FBI intermediary named Arvinder Sambei, who was actually working as the FBI’s counsel in the UK and had a personal and professional relationship with Bob Mueller dating back to 9/11.

The Perpetrators

Russian collusion did not happen. The phony Steele dossier was procured by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party.  Domestic spying during a presidential campaign did happen, and is still happening, and we have a right to know who participated in it, who authorized it and what their motives were, and we want indictments. Link 

Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Brennan, Clapper, Sally Yates, Bruce and Nellie Ohr, Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, Rod Rosenstein and others…. engaged in acts of sedition against the United States government, against the President of the United States.  Then there’s Clinton-dirt tipster, Joseph Mifsud of Malta; British intelligence officer and author of the Steele Dossier, Christopher Steele; and Stefan Halper, the Cambridge professor the FBI sent to spy on Trump; the NSA spying by Obama, Hillary Clinton’s multiple criminal acts, Eric Holder’ Fast and Furious, Loretta Lynch and the tarmac chat, and Susan Rice, all of whom are complicit, along with lesser known State Department officials. 

Fox News told us Barr has formed a team to review the FBI’s actions during the so-called phony collusion probe, that the pendulum is swinging, and the boomerang is now headed right back to the top, to the Deep State actors and they will all be held accountable.  Really? When? 

Comey

Crooked cop James Comey deliberately leaked government information to someone outside the Department of Justice in order to prompt a Special Counsel. Comey knew his good friend Mueller would be appointed by his other friend, Rod Rosenstein.  Barr has not charged Comey for his leaks.  Link

Comey was a young communist when he graduated from the College of William and Mary in 1982.  In her book, The Red Thread, Diana West writes, “Comey cites socialist theologian Reinhold Niebuhr as a formative influence.  Niebuhr is well known for his Marxist ‘ideas and approaches,’ including ‘social ownership’ of property, the use of violence to bring about political change and his membership in over one dozen Communist front organizations, including in leadership positions, which advanced the Kremlin line.” 

Niebuhr was “as dangerous as a Bolshevik behind a clerical collar,” but today he is promoted as a strong opponent of communism.  He is a favorite thinker of Jimmy CarterHillary ClintonBarack Obama, and now deceased, John McCain.

The former FBI Director is still walking free despite his participation in Loretta Lynch’s cover up for Hillary Clinton, his lies about President Trump not being under investigation, leaking government property to the media which were purposely meant to harm the President, spying on the President, and lying by omission allowing the President to be falsely smeared.

In the fall of 2018, dirty cop Comey co-taught a course about “ethical leadership” to students at the College of William & Mary, his alma mater.

McCabe

Both President Trump and General Flynn were targeted for malicious prosecution by an outgoing administration and its loyalists.  During an alleged senior-attended FBI meeting or video conference, Andrew McCabe said, “First we f*** Flynn, then we f*** Trump,” or words to that effect. 

Aside from the fact that McCabe, Comey and Strzok all hated President Trump, McCabe had a personal vendetta against the General.  Robin Gritz who is a decorated counterterrorism agent, and had worked with General Flynn at the Defense Intelligence Agency had filed a sexual discrimination and retaliation lawsuit against Andrew McCabe and other top FBI officials. 

In 2014 Michael Flynn backed up the sex discrimination charge brought by Gritz against McCabe and other top people at the FBI.  Surprise…two years later Flynn is the subject of a McCabe-led FBI investigation about how he supposedly colluded with the Russian ambassador.

On March 20th, 2018, Andrew McCabe was fired by the FBI for leaking information about the Clinton Foundation investigation to the media, then lying about it under oath to the DOJ Inspector General who believed McCabe had exhibited a “lack of candor” during its probe into disclosures to the media.  Here is the Inspector General’s report of the investigation of certain allegations relating to the former FBI Deputy Director.

Andrew McCabe was fired for good reason, he violated his oath, weaponized his DOJ position and broke the law. McCabe should be indicted and tried. If convicted, he should be imprisoned. It’s time.  He is currently the subject of a criminal grand jury investigation, but as of September 14th, he has not been indicted, a sign that the government’s case against the FBI’s former No. 2 official may be in jeopardy.  His attorneys are pressing for dismissal. 

Corrupt U.S. attorney Jessie Liu was involved in Mueller cases where exculpatory evidence was withheld from defendants.  She is now involved in the decision regarding whether Andrew McCabe should be indicted.  Liu is also involved in the Deep State’s sham indictment of the courageous General Mike Flynn. Since the 2016 election and before, General Flynn was targeted by Obama’s Deep State.

McCabe sued the Justice Department last month, saying his own termination from FBI was unlawful.  He has authored a book, is a contributor to CNN and a cavalcade of Obama-era national security leaders have committed to testify on his behalf should he face trial. 

Strzok and Page

Peter Strzokwas the Chief of the Counterespionage Section and led the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server.  Strzok’s paramour, Lisa Page was an attorney for the FBI.  Their text messages showed extreme bias and animosity toward candidate and then President Trump, with questionable ethics regarding their attempts to destroy the duly elected President.  Those messages were released to media, the rest were destroyed by Robert Mueller’s team.  The Inspector General report released last year found no evidence that the officials’ political opinions impacted their investigative actions with regard to the Clinton email investigation. 

Strzok was one of the two FBI agents who interviewed General Flynn at the behest of Comey, McCabe and others.  Joe Pientka was the other agent.  Comey acknowledged that the interview was not set up through the White House counsel’s office, but arranged directly with Flynn and was not standard practice. He called it “something I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more organized administration.”  Obviously, Comey did not follow proper protocol.

The only person who has credibility and could shed light on the unsanctioned interview is Pientka.  He was purposefully muzzled by the FBI, DOJ and Mueller investigation.

Like McCabe, Strzok is suing the government over his firing.

Escaping Justice

CIA Director Brennan is famous for lying to and spying on the Senate.  He was never charged and the Statute of Limitations long ago expired.  Five years before he joined the CIA he voted for communist Gus Hall for President.  John Guandolo of Understanding the Threat along with other government officials have direct knowledge that Brennan converted to Islam in 1996.

FBI official Bruce Ohr and his pro-collectivist Stalin apologist wife Nellie Ohr, later with the CIA and Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS, played a large role in the effort to destroy the candidacy of Donald Trump and, after Trump was elected, the Deep state coup attempt to remove him from office.  They have never been charged for their complicity in the Steele Dossier.

Eric Holder has never been charged for his illicit selling of guns through Operation Fast and Furious where one of those guns ended up in the hands of a Mexican cartel thug who killed border agent, Brian Terry.

Conclusion

Seditious Conspiracy: If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both. 

There is a clear case for charging all involved in Spygate with at least “seditious conspiracy” as the conspiracy was not only directed at a private citizen and presidential candidate, but continued against that individual after he became President-Elect and then President. Of course, they deserve the benefit of a trial before beingcondemned, but there appears to be enough public evidence to indict.

Where is AG William Barr?

Weekend Revelations, Stories of the Holocaust and Eternal Hope

“Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.” Sophie Scholl

By Shirley Edwards

(These are my views as a woman living in England, on how the culture and spirit of my country has changed over 50 years.   Why the country does not feel protected or strong any more, how it has lost, and is losing it values and decency, and how we are daily losing our free speech.)

Friday 29th August, 2019.

It is pretty amazing what can happen all in the space of 3 days.   What had started with a simple trip one Friday afternoon to an air-show to help hand out some leaflets for some friends, had also turned into an unexpected lunch with a young German couple and their child, an evening listening to Holocaust survivor Eva Schloss, step-sister to Anne Frank, and a cosy evening curled up on my friend’s settee viewing a new film with a very strange title called ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society’.  

You just couldn’t have made it all up. Yet the air show, the film and the meetings, although separated over the length of 3 days, were all so closely connected, telling the story of life, sacrifice, death and resurrection,  that I had to write it all down.     For you see they had also carried another message…….  

Saturday 30th August, 2019

As we wandered through the crowds that Saturday afternoon handing out leaflets, some of the spectators and air enthusiasts would have witnessed in the skies the Battle of Britain Memorial flights consisting of Spitfires, Hurricanes and Lancasters.  There were warbirds including the Buchon, Spitfire, P-47D Thunderbolt and Mustang; and there was a P-8A Poseidon Surveillance aircraft, which has a wingspan of 40 metres, developed for the U.S. Navy.  

Even some miles away you would have been able to hear the noise of their engines even if you couldn’t witness them.  Sometimes, and most especially in the evening, they had sounded like thunder in the distance warning people of an impending storm

Some of the planes were very reminiscent of a bygone era.   However, on the ground that day there was a strange battle of another kind taking place which were definitely in conflict with the lessons we should learn from history.

A sea of demonstrators all representing many different groups appeared within the crowds.  We were faced with people waving blue and yellow star spangled EU flags, people waving rainbow coloured flags, placards were being carried calling for democracy, banners and posters were being displayed to ‘out’ the prime minister, Boris Johnson, and demonstrations against climate change, were all inter-mingled and all attempting to make their voices heard above the sounds of rock music from one area and 40’s swing music from another area.   It was all one crazy market place.

The peacefulness at my friend’s home was a very welcome relief as that evening we watched the strangely titled film “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society” which tells the true story of the Nazi occupation of the Channel Islands during the Second World War and reflects the resistance that some Guernsey residents displayed towards the Nazi’s.

In 2010, it was also reported that testimonies from resistance fighters in Guernsey were discovered by a research team from the University of Cambridge indicating that many resistance fighters were deported by cattle trucks from the island to be imprisoned in Germany.   Many, however, also died on the way, and it is reported from those testimonies that the other prisoners were forced to bury them.

Sunday 31st August 2019

The next day as the sounds of the rumbling aircrafts once more filled the skies we left the crowds and joined some friends for lunch.   A couple from Germany, with their young child were staying with my friends.   They were aged just 21.  They were Christian and had a very strong and humble faith.  I was particularly struck by their responsibility to their young daughter and how the husband only spoke English to the child whilst the mother spoke German.  The young man explained to me how he had been tempted by friends on some occasions to ‘go with the crowd’ but had escaped the baggage of ‘unravelling sin’ by resisting that. He was very keen to know about events happening in the UK, about Brexit, about culture and immigration.  They were an exceptional couple who I will always remember.  Later, I learned that their child had been born with a serious condition at birth.  They prayed for her recovery, and she is completely healed.

Their beginnings in family life, and indeed their future, came to mind as later that day I attended a presentation called A Historic Event with Eva Schloss, who is a holocaust survivor, peace activist, international speaker, teacher and humanitarian.  She is also the step-sister of Anne Frank who wrote the book “The Diary of Anne Frank” and is 90 years old.

Listening to her story of how she survived, the escape from her homeland in Austria, two years in hiding in Amsterdam, capture on her 15th birthday, nine months in Auschwitz-Birkenau death camps, and her repatriation to Holland was very interesting.

It was sad to listen to how she had lost her father and brother, and very difficult to listen to how the women and young children had been stripped naked in front of the soldiers whilst they decided who would go to the gas chambers.   Both Eva and her mother did survive and she stated they were eventually liberated by the Russian army.  She went on to be married, have children, and also grand-children.

Whilst listening, I thought about the plight of children who are separated from their parents, and also recalled the 80th anniversary of Harwich Kindertransport, where 10,000 children were evacuated from Germany after anti-Jewish violence known as Kristallnacht in 1938.  Many of those children never saw their parents again.

During the evening there was a musical tribute called Ani Ma’amin – I Believe.   The history of the music is that it was composed by Azriel David Fastage on his way to his death at Treblinka.  A single survivor who jumped from the train later bought the composition to the United States.  The song is meant to speak of Eternal Hope.

Eva Schloss stated she speaks about her experiences so that it does not happen again, that we remember the holocaust, and fight the rise of anti-Semitism.     She was very honest in her answers saying she would not forgive the Nazi’s.     You can read here about Eva’s life.

I came away with many questions and observations about the times we are currently living in.

Monday 1st September, 2019

It was a beautiful morning as I packed my case to return home.  The sun was shining and it was very peaceful.   No doubt, I would later meet the thousands of spectators who had been attending the air show who would also be returning to their respective homes.   I looked at one of the leaflets which I had kept.  It spoke of the great mysteries of the air; the first hot air balloon in France, where the cargo was a sheep, a duck and a chicken.  It spoke of the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, how a helicopter lands when its engines fail and the disappearance of flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.  The leaflet then linked to the mystery that the disciples of Jesus Christ faced right before their eyes, as they watched him ascend from the Mount of Olives, 2000 years ago.  Some people who had taken the leaflets felt misled that the mysteries that they were more interested in had led them to read about a greater mystery explained.

It had been interesting that my friend had been approached by a local council official who had attempted in a false manner to stop her handing out these leaflets whilst ignoring the demonstrations nearby who had made a religion out of their own particular cause.   Eternal Hope, appeared to be an enemy.

I witnessed how the battle between good and evil is continuing taking place and how eugenics, euthanasia, and abortion, which are all trade marks of evil and are symbolic of ethnic cleansing are increasingly being promoted quite openly.    I thought about the indoctrination in our primary schools in relation to gender identity and how young children were being experimented upon with hormone blockers and how children were being given a so called freedom and encouraged to ‘choose’ their sexuality or have no identity at all.  ‘Nobodies’.   Yes, in my opinion, there is a holocaust taking place.   Objectors will be silenced.

Monday September 16th 2019

The events of the weekend I spent 2 weeks ago had become a bit of a distant memory until I read a timely article today and was reminded about two German Christians, Sophie and Hans Scholl, who were executed in Germany for resisting Hitler and the Nazi’s. At the time of their beheading Hans was 24 years old and Sophie was 21.  They had belonged to a non-violent underground movement in Germany known as the White Rose resistance movement and as part of their activities had wrote and distributed leaflets exposing the brutality that was happening in Germany.

In 1943, after their death, millions of copies of the sixth leaflet called ‘The Manifesto of the Students of Munich’ which had been smuggled out of the country were airdropped over Germany by the Allied Forces.

I was particularly struck by a quotation attributed to Sophie Scholl which reads:

“The real damage is done by those millions who want to ‘survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves – or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. It’s the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you’ll keep it under control. If you don’t make any noise, the bogeyman won’t find you. But it’s all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.”

“I will cling to the rope God has thrown me in Jesus Christ, even when my numb hands can no longer feel it.

Hell Yes, We’re Going to Take Your Freedom

By J. D. Pendry

“Hell Yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, Your AK-47.” Presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke

Robert Francis O’Rourke meant to say take away your freedom.  Not take away your Armalite Rifle (AR) 15.  Your weapon of war.  Robert might be surprised to know my Army basic combat training Drill Sergeants, all recent Vietnam Combat Veterans, taught me that every piece of equipment I carried was a potential weapon of war with which to kill the enemy complete with demonstrations.  Are you coming for my entrenching tool (shovel) next?

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

People, mostly politicians offer promises of hope and visions of a utopian future.  False hope mostly, but collectively we Americans are proven slow learners.  It’s false hope because it’s always proven fallacious, but usually after Americans bought it hook, line and sinker.  False hope through misleading promises always leaves us problems more serious than the problem we hoped to solve.  Will gun control or gun confiscation under whatever misnomer make us safer?  Or will it leave us defenseless in our homes and in public?  Or will it leave us defenseless against a tyrannical government?  The very purpose for the 2nd Amendment.  Did prohibition make us sober or safer?  Nope.  It only created a highly profitable bootlegging black market for the likes of Al Capone.  Then it was repealed and everyone got drunk legally.  So, when they come to take our guns is the offered hope of safety the goal?  Hell no, O’Rourke, it isn’t.  The goal is to remove our means of protecting ourselves and the ability to defend our God-given and Constitutionally guaranteed freedom all under the pretext of making us safer.

There’s lots of false hope spread around.  Sugar candy for the ignorant.  Free Medicare for all.  Do you know what that means?  Every working person my age was government forced into Social Security and Medicare.  We paid for it all of our working lives to cover the senior citizens of our time.  What’s next Comrade Sanders?  A social security check for everyone?  Yang has a plan I hear.  Bottom line, it takes away every American’s freedom to choose.  That’s the goal comrade.  Isn’t it?  By the way comrade, while you contemplate taking away my healthcare only to be followed by my Social Security check and probably military pension, how was it that you became a millionaire owning multiple homes while never holding a job other than civil service.  Your role model Karl Marx was a bum also.

Open borders will make us more diverse and vibrant.  We’ll end racism.  No, not really, but we will end America.  The actual goal.

The biggest false hope.  The most dangerous.  Most of us do not believe that loss of freedom is a possibility.  Not in America.  Let me run this by you?  Do not believe that every member of the United States Armed Forces will stand by their oaths to support and defend the Constitution of the United States regarding the right to keep and bear arms and protection against illegal search and seizure.  Always remember.  Presidents decide who the flag officers are.  The men and women that command the major elements of the military.  Their influence ripples down from the Commander in Chief through the chain of command.  Many will obey a command to knock on your door and confiscate weapons accompanied by your local, in some cases sanctuary state, police forces.

Just as man cannot give you integrity, dignity, courage, your values or cannot determine whether you live honorably, neither can he give you freedom.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

As Americans, we can continue as the guardians of freedom or our citizenry can submissively slip the yoke of slavery around its neck.

Freedom cannot be taken.  It can only be forfeited.  We must stand firm.

WILLIAM PELHAM BARR, PATRIOT OR TRAITOR

It is a sobering fact that American presidents (many of whom have been corrupt) have gone out of their way to hire fixers to be their attorney generals.

By Kelleigh Nelson

John Brennan writes: “But if democracy is a process rather than a state, the democratic process may involve, at some point, the violation of personal liberties and procedural justice.”

This is the chilling apologia for the anti-Trump conspiracy.  In order to keep the regime moving “forward,” the violation of personal liberties and procedural justice” is justified, whether it is an unpaid campaign adviser being violated (Carter Page) or the National Security Advisor (General Mike Flynn); whether it entails launching a disinformation campaign (Trump/Russia), or reversing an election (the Mueller probe).  The ends – their ends – justify any means.  Diana West in her book, The Red Thread

William Pelham Barr has a history of coverups, and the more I look at the facts, the more convinced I’ve become that he will protect the Deep State.  Resistance to the onslaught of evil is almost non-existent.  Socialists control the mass media, they have all the money in the world, they control higher and now even lower education, and they have edged their way into the pulpits of America.  Add all of that up along with our ignorant electorate who blindly vote without any knowledge of the candidates and how the hell are we ever to win?  These freedom hating socialists belong in the center of Dante’s hell. 

It is a sobering fact that American presidents (many of whom have been corrupt) have gone out of their way to hire fixers to be their attorney generals.  Recent history alone gives us a good look at several of them…Loretta Lynch (2015-2017), Eric Holder (2009-2015), Michael Mukasey (2007-2009), Alberto Gonzales (2005-2007), John Ashcroft (2001-2005), Janet Reno (1993-2001), Dick Thornburgh (1988-1991), Ed Meese (1985-1988), etc. 

Barr, however, seems to be a particularly spectacular and sordid case. As George H. W. Bush’s most notorious CIA insider from 1973 to 1977, and as the AG from 1991 to 1993, Barr wreaked havoc, flaunted the rule of law, and proved himself to be one of the CIA/Deep State’s greatest and most ruthless champions and protectors.  In fact, his modus operandi is a great deal like that of his close friend, Robert Mueller. Before becoming Attorney General in 1991, Barr held numerous other posts within the Department of Justice (DOJ), including serving as Deputy Attorney General.  

The CIA, Congress and Covert Operations

The issue of notification of Congress about imminent clandestine activities was at the heart of the Iran-Contra scandal when President Ronald Reagan and CIA Director William Casey specifically ordered that lawmakers be kept in the dark about the infamous, covert arms-for-hostages deals with Iran. 

Barr was by no means alone in pushing these views, the documents show. Other notable proponents during the Iran-Contra aftermath included then-Congressman Dick Cheney and John R. Bolton, who was also at the Justice Department.  After Cheney became defense secretary, he continued to press for extraordinarily broad Executive Branch authority, advising then-President George H. W. Bush to veto the Senate’s intelligence appropriations bill on the grounds it “attacked” presidential prerogatives – resulting in the only known such veto since the CIA’s creation.  Link

Spook Air Moves to Ohio

Previously documented was Mr. Barr’s involvement with the CIA, the Iran-Contra scandal, the covert arms-for-hostages deals with Iran and Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton’s sellout to the CIA.  

Arkansas was great for Iran Contra, but it was a wealthy Ohio businessman and his close associate that helped attract the CIA to the Buckeye State. Those men were billionaire philanthropist Leslie Wexner and Jeffrey Epstein.  Wexner owns The Limited and Victoria’s Secret, and during this period, he had entrusted all of his money to his longtime friend, Jeffrey Epstein, a secretive financier. 

Wexner and his company had a relationship with the CIA and Southern Air Transport (SAT) which was directly owned and used by the CIA for covert operations from 1960-1973.  SAT was intimately involved in the Iran-Contra affair, having been used to funnel weapons and drugs to and from the Nicaraguan Contras under the guise of delivering “humanitarian aid.”

Ohio gave lucrative tax incentives to SAT for a promised 300 new jobs they’d bring to Columbus that never transpired.  Columbus Free Press editor, Bob Fitrakis noted that in addition to Wexner the other main figures who were key in securing SAT’s relocation to Ohio were Alan D. Fiers Jr., a former chief of the CIA Central American Task Force, and retired Air Force Major General Richard Secord, head of air logistics for SAT’s covert action in Laos between 1966 and 1968, while the company was still known as Air America. Secord was also the air logistics coordinator in the illegal Contra resupply network for Oliver North during Iran-Contra. 

Fiers was later pardoned by George H. W. Bush with help from then AG Bill Barr. 

William Safire on AG Barr

Back in 1992, the first time Bill Barr was U.S. attorney general, New York Times writer William Safire referred to him as “Coverup-General Barr” because of his role in burying evidence of then-President George H. W. Bush’s involvement in “Iraq-gate” and “Iran-Contra.”  Iraq-gate was essentially the Bush administration using the agriculture department and banking to illegally divert funds to build up Saddam Hussein’s military after the Iraq-Iran war, including selling him weapons of mass destruction.  This was a huge scandal that Safire was involved in covering. 

Barr has been the go-to guy for protecting a president, covering up scandals, and obstructing investigations. In August 1992, Safire wrote about Barr’s refusal to appoint an independent counsel to investigate what he called Iraq-gate.  Safire lasered in on what he thought was “the Bush Administration’s fraudulent use of public funds, its sustained deception of Congress and its obstruction of justice.” 

Another independent counsel, Lawrence Walsh, had been named to investigate the Iran-contra affair in 1986 and would infuriate Republicans when he issued high profile indictments on the eve of the 1992 election. 

AG Barr was already covering up for Bush, Weinberger, Elliott Abrams, former assistant secretary of state; Robert C. McFarlane, former national security adviser, and former CIA officials Clair E. George, Alan D. Fiers and Duane Clarridge and others from the Reagan administration.  

Elliot Abrams, George H. W. Bush, Caspar Weinberger, William Barr (AP/Getty/Salon)

On October 19, 1992, Safire wrote of Barr’s unwillingness to appoint an independent counsel to look into Iraq-gate, “Why does the Coverup-General resist independent investigation? Because he knows where it may lead: to Dick Thornburgh, James Baker, Clayton Yeutter, Brent Scowcroft and himself (the people who organized the sale of WMDs to Saddam). He vainly hopes to be able to head it off, or at least be able to use the threat of firing to negotiate a deal.”

Three months later, Safire revisited the issue after Barr “handpicked a whitewasher” who would successfully filibuster the probe until after the election.  Barr pushed hard for last minute pardons for six individuals caught up in the investigation, including former defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger. 

Lawrence Walsh had been appointed to investigate the Iran-Contra activities of the Reagan administration and determine if crimes had been committed.  But the pardons by Barr aborted Weinberger’s trial and virtually eliminated what was left of Walsh’s investigation.  Walsh denounced the pardons and stated that doing so “undermines the principle that no man is above the law.”

Walsh’s tenure effectively discredited the independent counsel law in the eyes of both parties.

In Safire’s article, Justice Corrupts Justice, he accused Barr of not only rigging the cover-up, but of being one of the criminals who could be prosecuted.

John Bolton

John Bolton has always been a war hawk, one who promoted funding for the military industrial complex.  As such, I am thrilled that our President fired him.

Bolton has made a career out of defying Congress. During the Iran-Contra investigations, he refused to comply with Congressional demands for records. Bolton also believed that the Independent Counsel law was unconstitutional and did everything he could do preempt Congress’s efforts to investigate Iran-Contra. Bolton has no record of building up and reforming institutions. He defies laws, believes in might makes right, and has worked to undermine the system of checks and balances that is key to America’s representative republic.

The Inslaw/Promis Octopus

Inslaw Inc. is an information technology firm which developed the famous Promis software. A bankruptcy court determined Inslaw was defrauded of its intellectual property rights. Hillary Clinton was the intellectual property lawyer for the company that illegally marketed the software worldwide. Mary Jacoby, wife of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, is the daughter of a major investor in the company Hillary Clinton represented that marketed the stolen software.

The Promis software is a National Crime Information Center (NCIC)-type tracking technology incorporating numerous databases such as court records, financial

institutions, and utility companies. Inslaw was forced into bankruptcy in 1985 because the US Justice Department which contracted to purchase it, reneged on its obligations. Pirated versions of the software were sold by the US intelligence community worldwide to 88 foreign intelligence agencies, and other organizations such as banks. The program included a “backdoor” for US intelligence to hack into. 

Once the original version of Promis was delivered, the DOJ handed off a copy to the CIA which subcontracted Wackenhut Corp. to develop the “backdoor.” Wackenhut hired a technical and electronics whiz-kid, Michael Riconosciuto as its Research Director. A child prodigy who built an argon laser at 16, invented the electrostatic bomb, and published his Riconosciuto Italian to English dictionary still in use by most online translators among his many other inventions, Riconosciuto was put to work designing the covert “backdoor” for the co-opted Promis program. The work was done at a facility on the Cabazon Indian Reservation in Indio California. Another modification would take place in Little Rock, Arkansas, to tailor the Promis software for use by banks.

In October 1991, Barr appointed then retired Democratic Chicago judge Nicholas Bua as special counsel in the Inslaw scandal. Few people understand the full ramifications of Promis software, and the undetectable spying apparatus placed in foreign computers. In 1989, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jack Brooks, D-TX, launched a three-year investigation into the Inslaw affair. In the resulting report, the Committee suggested that among others, Edwin Meese, while presidential counselor and later as attorney general, and Democrat D. Lowell Jensen a former assistant and deputy attorney general and former US district judge in San Francisco, conspired to steal Promis software from Bill Hamilton’s company, Inslaw.

Bua’s 1993 report found the DOJ of no wrong doing in the matter, despite a 12-year lawsuit by Inslaw, regarding the government theft of their software.  One journalist, Danny Casolaro, died as he attempted to tell the story and boxes of documents relating to the case were destroyed, stolen, or conveniently “lost” by the DOJ. Software piracy, conspiracy, cover-up, stonewalling, covert action…just another decade at the corrupt DOJ.

Barr’s Blanket Immunity for Federal Agents

Barr told the New York Times in 1993 that he was not directly involved in the Ruby Ridge operation. Two years later, the Washington Post revealed that “top officials of the Bush Justice Department had at least 20 phone contacts concerning Ruby Ridge in the 24 hours before Vicki Weaver was shot,” including two calls involving Barr.   

Barr spent plenty of time organizing former Attorneys General and others to support “an FBI sniper in defending against criminal charges in connection with the Ruby Ridge incident.” Barr also “assisted in framing legal arguments advanced in the district court and the subsequent appeal to the Ninth Circuit.”  He called this, “serving the disadvantaged” pro-bono charitable work, (for FBI sniper, Lon Horiuchi, who already had a federally-paid law firm defending him) that helped tamp down one of the biggest scandals during Barr’s time as Attorney General from 1991 to early 1993.

Barr was responsible for both the U.S. Marshals Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, two federal agencies whose misconduct at Ruby Ridge “helped to weaken the bond of trust that must exist between ordinary Americans and our law enforcement agencies,” according to a 1995 Senate Judiciary Committee report.

When Boundary County, Idaho filed criminal charges against Horiuchi, Barr sprang to action seeking immunity for FBI snipers. He spearheaded efforts to sway the court to dismiss all charges because holding a sniper liable would “severely undermine, if not cripple, the ability of future attorneys general to rely on such specialized units in moments of crisis such as hostage taking and terrorist acts.”

Federal Judge Alex Kozinski warned in his dissent of a new James Bond “007 standard for the use of deadly force” against American citizens, stating, “A group of FBI agents formulated rules of engagement that permitted their colleagues to hide in the bushes and gun down men who posed no immediate threat.  Such wartime rules are patently unconstitutional for a police action.”  Link

BCCI Banking Scandal

The Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) was a shadowy but very real institution with connections to governments and intelligence services all over the world. BCCI’s owners specialized in evading regulators so that they could speculate and bribe with the depositors’ money. As the fraud mounted and spread, law enforcement officials and bank regulators the world over discovered what the CIA had been trying to hide.

Tampa’s federal prosecutors launched an investigation of money laundering in 1991.  The District Attorney of Manhattan investigated a broad array of bank activities and received zero cooperation from Justice Department and CIA.  And Barr sat on the influential deputies committee of the National Security Council, which controlled the paperwork.

“We couldn’t get records. We couldn’t get witnesses. We could barely get a meeting,” said John Moscow, the lead BCCI prosecutor in Manhattan.

Barr was up for confirmation as attorney general. Moscow said he heard that Democrats on the Judiciary Committee made Barr promise to let the BCCI investigation go ahead.  Trouble was, the big shots were indicted, but got away and Barr did not press Pakistan for their extradition, nor did his successors in the Clinton administration.

Conclusion

AG Barr appears to be someone who would protect the Deep State, not the law, and the Barr family history of Marxism is more than troubling.  The move from extreme leftism to rightwing conservatism resembles the liberal establishment takeover of the old right Republican Constitutionalists by Trotskyite Irving Kristol (father of Bill) and William F. Buckley, CIA Agent, Council on Foreign Relations member, and Yale Skull and Bones member. 

That takeover neutralized the strong Republican support for our Constitutional God given freedoms and squelched the desire to fight the enemies of our Republic.  The ultimate question is…will the DOJ enemies of freedom ever truly meet justice?!

Rule of Law or Coverup General?  You decide.

September 11, 2001

This is a reprint of my thoughts September 2001.  When this was written casualty estimates were 5, 000 or more. Much has changed since then.  A new generation born. We’re still fighting, although sometimes I think we may have lost track of the real enemy. The one who speaks eloquently and dresses in a designer suit.

***

September 11, 2001

By J. D. Pendry

Does everything except the attack on our country seem trivial to you?  It certainly does to me.  My routine is disrupted, my website is in desperate need of updating, actually, most things I attend to routinely need attention, yet it all seems a little unimportant to me now.  When compared with what 5000 others and countless of their friends and family members and our country have endured, yes it all seems rather trivial.

I have tried to think through what has happened to us during this unforgettable September week.  The images of crumbling symbols of our country are constantly replaying for me both on television and in my mind.  I think of the many people who went to work as on any day and have yet to come home – personal friends included.  This incident, an unspeakable act of mass murder, is running around in my mind searching for reasons.  Our country is in a vulnerable state now, and we must reason through things before we act.  Our shock has turned to grief, our grief to rage and our rage into a demand for revenge.  I believe at the end of the day what is right will prevail but, what we cannot do is match evil for evil.

What follows are a rambling spattering of my thoughts.  They may not seem coherent at times, but this is how I try to figure things out.  I hold no PhD’s, I’m not much of an expert at anything, but I have some things to get off my chest so to speak.  Then I can move on with the rest of America and deal with this blight on humanity.

Religion, what an interesting phenomenon it is.  Over many years in our country, we have systematically removed all references to God from our government, schools and practically any public place where the civil libertarians decide that someone might be exposed to faith when they didn’t want it.  Isn’t it interesting that one of the first places everyone turns for answers and protection in times such as these is God?  Our congress stood together on the steps of the Capitol and sang God Bless America and our President led us in a national prayer service.  I didn’t notice one civil libertarian out there pointing a finger saying you can’t do that.  Why do you think that is?  It’s as I said at the beginning, those thoughts and ideas are just too trivial to deal with right now.  I am comfortable with my faith, but I must admit that I have visited with my creator in prayer a little more than what is usual for me over the past few days.  What I have witnessed recently brings to mind one of my favorite quotes.  I’ve referred to it often and it sits at the top of my web page.

Our God and soldiers we alike adore,
Ev’n at the brink of danger; not before;
After deliverance, both alike requited,
Our God’s forgotten, and our soldiers slighted.
– Francis Quarles, 1632

It would be nice to finally disprove this thought after nearly four hundred years.

Religion has another part in this.  First, we must dispel any thoughts that we are about to enter into a war against Islam.  I heard the President mention the word “crusade” this morning while talking.  I also saw him cringe slightly after saying it.  I know that I cringed, and I know that before I finish typing my thoughts here, it’ll likely be the headline of some newspaper.  This, however, is not a religious war we are about to get into.  Instead, it’s a war against criminals and now I’m going to tell you why I believe that.  Osama Bin Laden and his ilk are criminals.  Very smart and calculating, but criminals all the same.  We already know what happens when thugs end up running a country.  Bin Laden is wealthy and educated.  JDs old country boy theory is that Bin Laden and his kind hope to rule the entire region where he now hides.  I may get some hate mail for this comment, but Bin Laden like the Butcher of Baghdad are nothing more than middle eastern Hitler’s and Americans – all westerners actually – are their Jews.  These criminals use their influence and their knowledge of the Islamic faith to convince poor and undereducated people that the West, led by “The Great Satan” America, is the reason for their predicament.  Using their twisted interpretations, they teach them that the reason they don’t have is because we do have.  They’re also taught that the only way to better the world is to destroy the West, but mostly America and if they give up their lives while doing so, they will get their reward.  Getting the great reward and being a hero appeals to the gullible mind of one who is also destitute.  What motivates criminals is wealth and power.  Bin Laden has the wealth; he is now seeking the power.

Is our country willing?  Are we willing to endure restrictions on our personal liberties that must happen for the defense and safety of our country?  Are we willing to endure more American casualties in what will likely be sustained combat operations unlike anything this country has experienced in years?  Are we willing?

Will we measure up?  We’ve all debated for some time about the quality of America’s new soldiers and whether or not they will measure up in times such as these.  I believe those debates are much like the civil liberties debates, too trivial to pursue just now.  We were attacked in our homeland.  We are not going off to some piss ant mud hole like Somalia with an unclear mission.  Our soldiers, young and old, past and present, have witnessed destruction and the death of innocents perpetuated by a group of people who want to destroy everything we hold dear.  Yep, they’ll measure up – they’ll more than measure up.

We must all continue to deal with our rage.  What is the source of that rage?  For me, it was an unprovoked attack on my country and my way of life.  I was the senseless loss of friends and the thoughts of the dreadful impact it had on their families.  It’s that same rage multiplied 5000 times.  My rage comes from a lifetime of standing ready to actually defend “my” country, then the one time it’s attacked being utterly helpless to do anything but watch it on TV.  Now, I’m left with a need, a deep need, to somehow make it right for those lost and to punish without remorse those who visited this on my home.

What is justice?  Is it bringing the likes of Bin Laden here for a trial?  Relying on my country boy philosophy, I would suggest that to be about as useful as tits on a boar hog.  This justice thing is funny however.  I doubt that you could find any reasonable person that does not believe that we are right and that “justice” is on our side in whatever we pursue.  It’s funny however, because it’s likely that you won’t find one Bin Laden supporter who doesn’t believe it’s on theirs.  The real question is are we as committed to seeing justice brought on this group as they were.

Where do we find the resolve to see this through?  I can’t answer this question for America.  I can only answer it for myself.  Out of the smoke and rubble in New York and at the Pentagon, I see a square-jawed, raw-boned old gentleman picking himself up.  His top hat is missing from his white-haired head and he’s dusting himself off.  There is grim determination on his face.  As he rolls his sleeves, I see a clenched fist and knuckles scarred from previous battles.  This is the spirit of America.  Our tallest buildings and landmarks can be destroyed one by one.  Our spirit cannot.  Behind this old gent, are thousands of souls from this and past battles.  You see Bin Laden we too have faith.  We know that bodies can be destroyed by your kind but souls cannot.  These souls have stood their judgment and soon you will stand yours.  May God have mercy on your soul.
