The CNN media circus continues into 2017:

The media marathon of Russian hacking by the evil dweevil Putin Lol
continues unabated this morning on CNN,
with Kate "dutch boy" Bulldump {Bolduan} now on with her own show.
Looks like CNN buried Pee Wee Berman {kate's former co-host}
somewhere else in their gay media closet.

Bolduan looks much better since CNN took my advice and changed her daily attire.
Only thing she needs now is to eliminate that Dutch Boy haircut,
because she sometimes looks like a gay boy in her flowery dress.

She will never be able to compete with Megyn Kelly,
as CNN strives to find a morning female news Jew to slobber out the CNN political lines.

But Kate is working hard and now has her own show.
But notice the hairdo's on most FOX females Hmm2 ... no Dutch Boys there.

Kate Bolduan of CNN must have a butcher as a hair stylist.
That must be Bashar al-Assad Rofl

When she grows her hair out and becomes a real woman,
maybe then Whip
she can compete with Megyn Kelly.

Bolduan had a very lovely dress on this morning,
all flowery and and pleasant,
and the news Jew talking heads on CNN this morning with Kate,
had the banshee Gloria Phantasm Bolger trying to give Trump advice,
recieves the intel reports from the DNI -- Department of National Intransigence.  Reefer

Bolger talked about Russian hacking like she has seen the report, which she hasn't.
Bolger's hair stylist is also Bashar al-Assad, Lol
but he must be in a better mood when he poofs up Gloria's h-do,
and Kate looks like she has been decapitated at the neck with her h-do,
while CNN just sits her loose head back on top of her dutch boy neckline-hairline,
and says, ... youre on live! ... head or no head.

Now that would be funny!
Kate Bolduan on CNN morning news ... as the headless Dutch Boy.


Trump won't budge on refusing the DNI fudge-n-sludge of Russian hacking, IMO.

I am most interested in seeing the names of the "intermediaries"  Ninja  Pimp  Alien2
that supposedly handed over the emails.

In the meantime, Kate "dutch boy" Bulldump will remain a CNN cracker jack inthe box,
until she decides to get sexy and grow that hair out.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congress certified Donald Trump's presidential victory Friday over the objections of a handful of House Democrats, with Vice President Joe Biden pronouncing, "It is over."

House Democrats objected to the votes from at least 10 states, raising issues of voter suppression as well as American intelligence showing that Russia tried to sway the election in favor of Trump. In each case, their objections were denied because they didn't have the support of any senators.

All 538 electors met in their respective state capitals in December to cast their votes. Friday's vote count made it official. Biden presided over the count in his role as president of the Senate.

Trump finished with 304 electoral votes and Democrat Hillary Clinton got 227. There were seven protest votes for other candidates. It takes 270 Electoral College votes to win the presidency.

As expected, Mike Pence was elected vice president.

Trump and Pence are to be sworn in on Jan. 20.

As the votes were announced for state after state, Democratic members of the House stood up to object. But in each case, no Democratic senator would join them, and Biden cut them off.

"There can be no debate," Biden said repeatedly. LilD

Under federal law, if at least one senator and one House member object to the vote from any state, the House and Senate will meet separately to debate the merits of the objection.

Toward the end of the count, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., pleaded for a senator to join her in objecting.

"Is there one United States senator who will join me in this letter of objection?" Waters said to boos from Republicans. None did.

After the vote, Biden told some of the House Democrats who tried to object why he had cut them off.

"Basically, it was the rules and we understand that," said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, who led the effort to object to Trump's election.

Lee and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus wanted to bring attention to strict voter ID laws in some states that they say suppress voters.

"The real question was about the principles of Democracy and the sacredness of the vote and the very high calling of a presidential election," Lee said.

The objections added a bit of acrimony to the end of a nasty presidential election. Not surprisingly, several protesters were ejected from the public gallery as the vote count concluded.

Trump won even though Clinton received nearly 2.9 million more votes. His election has generated much angst among Democrats and others who oppose the billionaire businessman. But they have been powerless to change the outcome.

Despite rumblings of a revolt, only two Republican electors - both from Texas - cast protest votes for someone other than Trump. Clinton lost four Democratic electors in Washington state and one in Hawaii.

On Friday morning, Trump went on Twitter to provide another assessment of the election.
"Hillary and the Dems were never going to beat the PASSION of my voters. They saw what was happening in the last two weeks before the (election) and knew they were in big trouble - which is why they cancelled their big fireworks at the last minute. THEY SAW A MOVEMENT LIKE NEVER BEFORE," Trump wrote.

Submitted by Andrew Napolitano via,
Quote:Over the New Year’s weekend, President Barack Obama’s chief policy adviser and closest strategist, Valerie Jarrett, told a talk show host that her boss would have a happy legacy because there was an absence of scandal in his administration.
When first I heard this preposterous claim, I thought I had misheard it. Yet it is apparently true that President Obama and his team somehow can overlook recent history and behave as if events with which we are all familiar never happened.
Here is the back story.
Quote:When Obama became president in 2009 and enjoyed significant Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress, he and his colleagues devoted themselves entirely to an issue nowhere in the Constitution — health care. They did not address other issues dear to them and their base, such as guns, abortion, taxes, war, jobs and civil liberties. Rather, they sought to alter radically the relationship of the federal government to every person in America by imposing upon each of us the obligation to purchase a product — namely, health insurance — whether we wanted it or not.
The abominable statute they enacted, which has caused millions of folks to lose their primary care physician and millions more to see their premiums skyrocket and still millions more to see their full-time jobs become part-time, has acquired the nickname Obamacare.
Instead of reducing taxes or regulations or spending so more folks would have better-paying jobs, the president and his folks were determined to tell us all how to stay healthy. Obamacare passed on a party-line vote, with not a single vote to spare in the Senate.
At the time it was enacted, the president argued vociferously that the financial consequence of not obtaining health insurance — the penalty for disobeying the law — was not a tax. He made that argument because he had promised Democrats — many of whom lost their congressional seats for going along with his utopian experiment — that he would not raise taxes to accomplish his purposes.
When the statute was challenged in the federal courts and the various challenges were consolidated before the Supreme Court, the challengers did not dispute the claim that the penalty was not a tax. A court cannot consider arguments or evidence not put to it. For instance, in an automobile accident, if all eyewitnesses state that a traffic light in question was green at the time of the collision, the court may not find that it was red.
Yet notwithstanding agreement among the parties before the Supreme Court and notwithstanding the absence of any evidence that the penalty was a tax, the Supreme Court made new law by declaring this non-tax to be a tax and then ruling that Congress can tax anything it wants — so Congress can force you to purchase a product you don’t want by taxing you if you fail to make the purchase.
None of this is new. It is the president’s known legacy. It is a legacy of the colossal failure of the central planning of one-fifth of the economy. It has resulted in an expansion of federal powers and a reduction in the availability of health care providers and is yet another glaring rejection of the Constitution as the supreme law of the land.

While all of this was going on, the scandals Jarrett overlooked were brewing. Operation Fast and Furious, which began in the George W. Bush administration, exploded under Obama, when the guns the feds intentionally had let slip into the hands of Mexican gangs were used to kill one of their own.

Then came Libya, where heavy armaments the feds secretly had passed into the hands of terrorists masquerading as rebels were used to kill the U.S. ambassador and topple a friendly government.

Then came the seizure of telephone records of journalists critical of the administration by the Department of Justice, which secretly convinced a federal judge that talking to a whistleblower and reporting on his questionable behavior somehow involved reporters criminally in that behavior.

Then came the targeting by the IRS of conservative advocacy groups by denying them tax-exempt status for political reasons.

Then came the Secret Service scandal in which dozens of agents were caught in sexual encounters on foreign trips in hotels where the president was staying — encounters that involved the loss of laptops and itineraries and jeopardized the president’s physical safety — and two directors lost their jobs.

Then came the Edward Snowden revelations that the government was capturing every keystroke of every person using every computer and mobile device in the United States yet was still failing to keep us safe and that a senior Obama official had lied about this under oath. And all this was done without the approval of Congress, using a secret court that rationalized its way around the Constitution.

While all this was happening, the president was secretly using drones to kill Americans and others in foreign lands — folks never charged with crimes — using laughable legal authority as justification. Also, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was exposing state secrets — including the names and whereabouts of undercover American agents — to friend and foe alike, and the FBI declined to recommend prosecution. And while Clinton was under investigation, her husband, former President Bill Clinton, had a private meeting on an airport tarmac with the attorney general — whom he had once appointed a U.S. attorney — at which they claim they discussed their grandchildren.

Which legacy is worse, failure or scandal? Is it any wonder Donald Trump tapped into the raw nerves of the folks the president and the Democrats forgot about and rode their anger to victory? Americans today are less free, less prosperous, less safe and trillions more in debt than we were eight years ago. Can Trump effectively change course after so much damage has been done? We soon will know.

Gunman in custody after killing five and injuring six at Florida's Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport

The timing of this event is just too curious.
Shooter complained of the CIA brain burning ISIS Ninja  trash into his mind.

yea yea yea ... if there ever was a false flag, 
this one would take the cake. 

This guy shot several people ... and then just laid down and waited to be arrested.
Has that ever happened before?
I don't think so.

I finally found a description of how he ... gave up.

Quote:"Once he finished shooting, 
he walked down by Door 2, 
threw his gun on the ground, 
and laid down on the ground, 
until the first officer came — 
which was probably a minute later," 
Lea told MSNBC. 
"He was not shot at all, was not wounded."

The shooter was wearing a blue "Star Wars" T-shirt

Darth Voodude here, must have had too many CIA Doh  O Be One Spin O Be pills.  

Airport security is going to make those TSA lines even longer and slower.

The Trump presidency carnival and roller coaster ride is just getting rolling folks.
Today's Darth Voodude attack at the airport,
was just a plinko game in the national playpen of airport insecurity.

Quote:Dangerous crossroads: Is Obama intent upon waging a military operation on Russia’s border prior to the end of his presidential mandate?
This military onslaught could potentially create a fait accompli.
Are these deployments of US tanks and troops part of Obama’s “act of retribution” against Russia in response to Moscow’s alleged hacking of the US elections, which according to the director of National Intelligence James Clapper constitute an “Existential Threat” to the Security of the US. 
As we recall Obama on December 29th “ordered a series of retaliatory steps against Russia”.
Is this a “fast-track” procedure on the part of the outgoing president, with the support of US intelligence to create chaos prior to the inception of the Trump administration on January 20th?
According to Donbass International News Agency Service, “A Massive US military deployment should be ready by January 20.”
Political Insanity prevails. 
And insanity could potentially unleash World War III. 
Meanwhile none of this is front page news. The mainstream media is not covering it.
Below is the report of the Donbass International News Agency report.
Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research, January 5, 2016
*       *       *
The NATO war preparation against Russia, ‘Operation Atlantic Resolve’, is in full swing. 2,000 US tanks will be sent in coming days from Germany to Eastern Europe, and 1,600 US tanks is deployed to storage facilities in the Netherlands. At the same time, NATO countries are sending thousands of soldiers in to Russian borders.
According to US Army Europe, 4,000 troops and 2,000 tanks will arrive in three US transport ships to Germany next weekend. From Bremerhaven, US troops and huge amount of military material, will be transported to Poland and other countries in Central and Eastern Europe.
USA is sending to Russian borders 3rd Brigade of the 4th Infantry Division. Overall, more than 2,500 pieces of cargo are shipped to Germany, where those will be unloaded in the period January 6-8. US military material and troops will continue to Poland by rail and military convoy’s. Massive US military deployment should be ready by January 20.
“Some 900 cars with military materiel will be transported by train from Bremerhaven to Poland. There are also about 600 pieces of freight that will be transported by train to Poland from the military training ground at Bergen-Hohne. Nearly 40 vehicles will travel directly by road from Bremerhaven to Poland,” told Bundeswehr press office.
Quote:“Three years after the last American tanks left the continent, we need to get them back,” said Lieutenant General Frederick “Ben” Hodges, commander of US forces in Europe.
He made the statement during a visit to the Logistics School of the Bundeswehr in Garlstedt, Lower Saxony. He told journalists that the measures were a “response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the illegal annexation of Crimea.”
While NATO is preparing for war against Russia, Hodges turned everything upside down and accused Russia of preparing for war. “This does not mean that there necessarily has to be a war, none of this is inevitable, but Moscow is preparing for the possibility,” Hodges said.
In the dangerous escalation against nuclear-armed Russia, which poses the danger of a third world war, the German Bundeswehr is playing a central role. “Without the support of the [German] Army, we can go nowhere,” Hodges said during an appearance at the Joint Support Service of the Bundeswehr.
Germany, which rolled over Eastern Europe in its war of extermination 75 years ago, is preparing to send combat troops to the Baltics. In January, 26 tanks, 100 other vehicles and 120 containers will be transported by train to Lithuania. Germany will send the 122nd Infantry Battalion.
At the same time total of 1,600 US fighting vehicles are due to be stored at a six-warehouse complex in the southeastern village of Eygelshoven, near the Belgian and German borders. The Eygelshoven facility was originally opened in 1985 during the Cold War, when it was used by US troops to practice drills in case of a possible Soviet attack, wrote RT News.
Abrams Tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles and Paladin artillery have already started arriving in what is part of a $3.4 billion Congress-approved scheme to increase NATO military capability in Europe. Storage sites are also planned to be reopened in Poland, Belgium and Germany.

Quote:President-elect Donald Trump is not allowing for any diplomatic dawdling. His transition team has issued a directive that all ambassadors appointed by President Obama must leave their posts by Inauguration Day, a source confirmed Friday.

While it is standard for politically appointed ambassadors to step aside at the end of a presidential term, an individual with knowledge of the foreign service told that Trump’s “unwillingness to consider individual cases or exigencies” appears to represent a break with protocol -- though the Obama administration appears to have done something similar. 
“[The directive] in itself is not that significant. But it is more unyielding than in the past,” he said.

The New York Times first reported that a State Department cable was sent to all ambassadors on Dec. 23 informing them they have to vacate their posts by Jan. 20 “without exceptions.”

Ronald E. Neumann, the president of the American Academy of Diplomacy, told the Times that he could not “recollect there was ever a guillotine in January where it was just, ‘Everybody out of the pool immediately.’”

Obama Gives Military Farewell In an Empty Stadium "lots of empty chairs"

Hi Tp

On a scale of importance from 1 to 10, with 10 being the most important, this breaking development is a 500.
By Jon Rappoport
On Friday, the traditional day of the week for quietly releasing big news that will hopefully be ignored by the public—and also obscured by the Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting—the chief of Homeland Security announced that his office will be taking over US elections.
If you can’t see the coup in progress, you need to keep looking until the message comes through.
Read carefully—ABC News reports. My comments are in brackets:
“Citing increasingly sophisticated cyber bad actors and an election infrastructure that’s ‘vital to our national interests’, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Friday that he’s designating U.S. election systems critical infrastructure…”
[Also known as: “we’re taking over.”]
“’Given the vital role elections play in this country, it is clear that certain systems and assets of election infrastructure meet the definition of critical infrastructure, in fact and in law’,” Johnson said in a statement. He added: ‘Particularly in these times, this designation is simply the right and obvious thing to do’.”
[Also known as: “we’re taking over.”]
“The determination came after months of review and despite opposition from many states worried that the designation would lead to increased federal regulation or oversight on the many decentralized and locally run voting systems across the country. It was announced on the same day a declassified U.S. intelligence report said Russian President Vladimir Putin ‘ordered’ an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election.”
[Also known as: “we needed an excuse, a fake cover story for our takeover, and Russia is it.”]
“Such a change [in who controls the US election process] does not require presidential action [or Congressional approval], and only requires the secretary [of DHS] to first consult with the assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism.”
[Also known as: “this is a coup by the White House.”]
“Johnson said election infrastructure included storage facilities, polling places and vote tabulation locations, plus technology involved in the process, including voter registration databases, voting machines and other systems used to manage the election process and report and display results.”
[Also known as: “We’re taking over every significant aspect of the national election process.”]
“The designation [of US elections as critical infrastructure] allows for information to be withheld from the public when state, local and private partners meet to discuss election infrastructure security — potentially injecting secrecy into an election process that’s traditionally and expressly a transparent process. U.S. officials say such closed door conversations allow for frank discussion that would prevent bad actors from learning about vulnerabilities. DHS would also be able to grant security clearances when appropriate and provide more detailed threat information to states.”
[Also known as: “we can intercede in the election process and determine its outcome without any need to pretend we’re being transparent; only people we approve will know the details of how we run elections; secrecy works.”]
“The Obama administration has proposed international cyber rules for peacetime that would expressly note that countries shouldn’t conduct online activity targeting critical [US] infrastructure, which will now also include election systems.”
[Also known as: “in case there is any doubt, elections systems in America will be property of the federal Executive Branch.”]
This is a coup.
This is equivalent to declaring a national state of emergency, including martial law: the DHS, if it deemed it necessary, could utilize armed agents to enforce the new directive and take over states’ offices that resist.
Election-processes belong to the states. But not anymore.
And of course, with this awesome new power, the DHS could intercede, behind the scenes, in the voting process and rig elections.
There is an additional aligned factor at work in this op: the proposed elimination of the Electoral College—yet another measure designed to “federalize” the election process.
Most people are entirely ignorant of the fact that the Constitution was a pact among states. With reluctance, the independent states agreed to relinquish certain specified powers to the newly created central government, while retaining all other powers.
The Electoral College was, therefore, a natural invention, because the states would maintain crucial influence in determining the outcome of presidential elections. State Electors would cast their presidential votes based on which candidate won in their state.
Eliminating the Electoral College now would add one more layer of federal control over the whole country, and take control from the states. More centralization.
Imagine it. Only the popular vote counts. The states are dumped. And on top of it all, the Dept. of Homeland Security has the power to run the election process as a piece of “critical infrastructure.”
Rigging the vote in New York and California, plus a few other populous states, would decide the election. And in time, no one would think about “New York” or “California” as separate entities—because they wouldn’t be. They would just be “more land and people” that are part of “wholly unified” America.
This is perfect for the “unity politicians” who spout empty rhetoric every chance they get—“we’re all in this together.” As I tirelessly point out, such slogans are nothing less than covert ops, and their goal is roping in as many dullards as possible under a messianic banner of A Better Life for All under a Beneficent Government.
Also known as: we the rulers decree, you the people submit; your survival depends on us; we give and take as we will, and that shall be the whole of the law.
Eventually, why have presidential elections at all? Just allow the DHS to determine which candidate will best serve the needs and desires of the controllers.
It’s cleaner, simpler, and more direct.
It’s a coup.
Will Trump cancel it?
Obama is basically challenging him to do it—which would create one more firestorm in the press directed at Trump.
“See, the new president just stopped the DHS from protecting our sacred free elections. Trump is exhibiting more treasonous cooperation with his Russian masters…he’s leaving the door wide open for their secret invasion against our liberties…”
The timeline is clear. One: Hillary will surely win the election. Two: Trump won the election. Three: Trump won because Russia “hacked the election” in his favor. Four: We must protect our national election process from foreign hacking. Five: Homeland Security must put itself in charge of national elections.
Stay tuned.
A coup just occurred.

That is by Chossudovsky

Operation Atlantic Resolve was planned out long before this election,
and it is a NATO war coopertaion exrecise. 

2000 US tanks aren't going to stop a Russian invasion,
2000 US tanks aren't going to invade Russia. 

tank strength by country

Russia 15,398

US  8,848

Putin is going to wait it out to see what Trump has in his back pocket,
and Putin isn't worried about 2000 US tanks.

Putin is however worried about significant US investment in "upgrading the US nuclear arsenal".
In that regard,
you can read between the lines.

RE: Next President of the United Fates of America - Wook - 01-09-2017

Why would Putin Worry about Tanks in a Warehouse?
One big target by the person STUPID enough put to all those eggs in one basket to take the Tanks out in one Strike .
and the EU Nations have no Tanks already in Europe?
what utter Bullshit .

If Russia Hacked Podesta, Then Russia Knew Hillary Used a Private Server to Email Obama

The current establishment narrative states that Russia used Hillary Clinton’s incriminating emails against her campaign to elect Donald Trump. When Democratic pundits or the U.S. intelligence community state that “Russia hacked our election,” they really mean Russia hacked the DNC and Clinton’s campaign. In 2016, words like “election” and “democratic process” are defined as either the DNC or Podesta’s emails. The fact Wisconsin hasn’t voted for a Republican since 1984, but picked Trump over Clinton, isn’t part of the equation.
Russia and “Russian hackers” are convenient scapegoats to explain Clinton’s $1.2 Billion campaign loss. Otherwise, Democrats would have to accept that Clinton’s negative favorability ratings, Iraq Vote, use of the phrase “super-predator” to describe black youth, advocacy of the TPP, Foundation issues, ongoing FBI email investigations, and the DNC’s cheating of Bernie Sanders might have had a tiny role in her defeat.
However, why would Russia only hack the DNC and Podesta’s emails?
What about Clinton’s server?
If indeed Russian hackers gave WikiLeaks the DNC and Podesta emails (there’s zero evidence backing this claim, but let’s follow the establishment’s narrative to its logical conclusion), then Russian intelligence would certainly have read these emails.
If indeed they hacked Clinton’s campaign, and then read Podesta’s emails, then Russia’s GRU and FSB intelligence agencies also knew Clinton used a private server; not a email address.
We have a flaw in Democratic propaganda stating Hillary would have won if not for those meddling Russians.
It’s interesting that after a year-long FBI criminal investigation (where James Comey stated Clinton was “extremely careless” in the handling of classified intelligence) that recent Congressional testimony from intelligence chiefs didn’t focus on what Russians learned from their alleged hacking activities. Keep in mind that Clinton’s server was unencrypted for the first three months. It also contained 22 Top Secret emails and thousands of retroactively classified emails.
What kind of damage to U.S. national security would be caused by Putin hacking Clinton’s server?
Russians would certainly have read the emails they hacked, and the information they read would lead to Clinton’s server. If Russia indeed hacked Podesta, then Vladimir Putin knew the following information before President Obama:
Quote:In WikiLeaks Email ID 31077, Cheryl Mills writes “we need to clean this up - he has emails from her - they do not say” As CNN explains, Mills is referring to President Obama receiving emails from Clinton that aren’t from a U.S. government network.
Quote:In WikiLeaks Email ID 51094, John Podesta writes “At least we now know why Cheryl didn’t want her to run.” As POLITICO explains regarding this email chain, “Podesta suggests Cheryl Mills was against Clinton run because of email server.”
Quote:Podesta’s statement is a response to Neera Tanden who writes “Do we actually know who told Hillary she could use a private email? And has that person been drawn and quartered?”
Thus, any foreign intelligence service would know very quickly that Hillary used a private server to communicate with President Obama. If they hacked the emails during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, then they’d have real-time knowledge of everything on her server; 22 Top Secret emails and all the other classified emails.
However, what if Russia learned about Clinton’s server in 2015?
The potentially fabricated timeline from The New York Times isn’t good news for Hillary supporters. Clinton eventually gave up her private email server in August of 2015 (after weeks of stalling) so any Russian hacking attempt prior would have given Russian intelligence knowledge and access to data on the server.
The New York Times published a timeline of Russian hacking that takes place in March and July; months before the time Clinton eventually released her server to the FBI.
Russian hackers would have known of Clinton’s private server before she turned over the server (perhaps five months before) to the FBI.
With knowledge from Podesta’s emails regarding Clinton never using a, it’s doubtful Russians would refrain from hacking the server of America’s highest diplomat. In addition, Russia would have known Clinton communicated with President Obama using this server. This is where the CIA, NSA, and FBI should be concerned; not the vapid belief that Trump won because of Russian hacking.
The pseudonym that President Obama used when communicating with Clinton is almost certainly one of the reasons Clinton never received Espionage Act indictments. As written in POLITICO, Obama used a pseudonym in emails with Clinton, FBI documents reveal:
Quote:President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday…
Quote:In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.
Quote:“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be a pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?’” the report says. “Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.”
Quote:The State Department has refused to make public that and other emails Clinton exchanged with Obama. Lawyers have cited the “presidential communications privilege,” a variation of executive privilege, in order to withhold the messages under the Freedom of Information Act…
Quote:It’s been known since last year that Obama and Clinton corresponded occasionally via her private account, but the White House has insisted Obama did not know she relied on it routinely and exclusively for official business.
Quote:“Clinton did not recall receiving any emails she thought should not be on an unclassified system,” the FBI said in its Sept. 2 report.
So, both Obama and Clinton communicated via email, and Clinton’s server wasn’t protected by security. Also, it’s unbelievable the FBI would accept Clinton’s answer that she “did not recall receiving any emails she thought should not be on an unclassified system.” Apparently, Clinton didn’t think that 22 Top Secret emails or communication with the president shouldn’t have been on a private server.
Why would Russian intelligence services not hack Clinton’s server, knowing from Podesta’s emails that she communicated with President Obama?
Finally, in addition to the fact Clinton stored email communication with President Obama that could have easily been intercepted by Russian intelligence (through the alleged hacking of Podesta’s emails), it’s important to note that Clinton’s server was unencrypted for three months. Quoted in The Hill, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates believes Clinton’s server was almost certainly compromised by Russia, China and Iran:
Quote:Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he believes foreign countries like Russia, China and Iran may have hacked the private email server Hillary Clinton used while secretary of State.
Quote:“Given the fact that the Pentagon acknowledges that they get attacked about 100,000 times a day, I think the odds are pretty high,” he said Thursday during an interview on “The Hugh Hewitt Show.”
Quote:Gates said he agreed with former acting CIA Director Mike Morell’s claim that the server had probably been hacked by either Russia, China or Iran.
Quote:He added that the fact that classified intelligence has been found on the server was “a concern for me.”
In 2009, during the first three months Clinton’s server was unencrypted, she visited China as Secretary of State.
POLITICO writes Clinton’s server also faced hacking attempts from China, South Korea and Germany in 2013 and 2014.
Therefore, Russia hacking “the election” should be the least of the CIA’s worries, especially if Russian hackers actually read Podesta’s emails. Then of course there’s the recent revelation that the FBI requested DNC servers to conduct a forensic analysis, but the DNC refused to give up their servers. Why wouldn’t the DNC want the FBI’s help in analyzing their hacked servers?
Julian Assange states Russia was not the source of WikiLeaks DNC and Podesta emails.
WikiLeaks has stated there’s no link between Trump and Russia and no link between Assange and Russia.
Russia is almost certainly being used as a scapegoat (one of numerous excuses used by establishment Democrats who cheated Bernie Sanders) to justify Clinton losing to Trump.
As for any attempt to paint Russia as influencing the election, Russian hackers would have read the emails they stole from Podesta. This information would then lead them to Clinton’s server. Ultimately, President Obama and his communication with Clinton would have been targeted by Russia, if indeed the latest Democratic election narrative is true.

RE: Next President of the United Fates of America - Vianova - 01-10-2017

Looks like it might be fairly easy for the anti-Putin establishment,
to create any plethora of political concoctions,
in keeping Putin painted as the perpetual villain for public consumption,
while Trump to continually rides to the rescue of his Russian care bear in twitter-ville USA.

The more that Trump plays out his recurrent sweet tooth Putin tweet syndrome,
the more that Trump isolates himself into a corner slowly but surely,
during this constant media and political anti Putin carnival and parade.

Making friends with the Russians may be impossible to unlikely for a lot of reasons,
but the failure will generate mostly from the bipartisan anti-Puitn contingency,
which is cohesive and determined to punish Russian with sanctions.

If Trump himself remains defiant and determined,
he may however find a way to thaw the current freeze frame in Russia - US relations.
Hopefully sooner than later.

Aside form the Ft Lauderdale killings  Ninja

a more interesting international event Hmm2

 was the departure of the Kuznetsov Hi  from the coast of Syria.

Putin kept the more modernized and effective warships off the coast of Syria,
and sent the old garbage scow back home.
Nonetheless it's a big move.
Putin still has to be the enforcer of any current "peace plan" seen on the table recently.

That peace plan includes Turkey  Naughty
being granted rights to go after the Kurds in northern Syria ... after ISIS in Raqqa falls.

That includes Assad carpet bombing Idlib province soon,
with Russian air support from their air base in Syria
all to kill off the rest of the Aleppo rebels and evacuees.
 {Assad still needing to retake Palmyra from ISIS as well}

Soon enough Iranian troops will be needed to augment the ... Assad re-occupation forces,
that Assad does not have enough of his own troops to manage his own country with.

Don't forget the ongoing CIA backed Saudi led war in Yemen,
against Iranain backed Houthi, 
or the al-Qaeada groups therein.

Somewhere in that long equation,
everything is just going to keep going from bad to worse,
slowly but surely,
as Trump inherits an Obama foreign military policy that was error prone and lame at best.

How far can the elastic stretch ... until the Israeli's take action against the Iranian nuclear plants?
simply stage the pantomine to set Trump up into a Syrian or Iranian fly trap?

Quote:Trump isolates himself
From the CIA , NWO , Der Homeland Pressitudes , Obama , Hillary , McCain , Lindsey Graham , Neocons and other turds
but not the Voters who put Trump in office . 

Quote:On January 15, 2017, with only five days left after 2,917 days in office, President Barack Obama is planning once again to feed Israel to the international wolves. The move is intended to tie the hands of President Donald Trump and is a direct repudiation of the will of the American electorate who rejected Obama’s calamitous foreign policy and a repeat performance by his secretary of state.

On Sunday, France is scheduled to hold an international conference to unleash an international mob on Israel. The meeting is taking place with Obama’s direct connivance. Seventy-states have been lined up to impose their preferences on the Middle East’s only democracy. Israelis are still dying in Israeli streets after seventy years of unending Arab terror – and the folks sitting in Paris munching on croissants know best how to protect Israeli national security.

The bare-faced power-grab by France and its Arab allies – with the blessing of President Obama – raises unavoidable questions: Who will attend? If they attend, how senior a representative will be sent by the main players on the Security Council: the U.S., Russia, and the United Kingdom? Will attendees sign on to an outcome document imperiling Israel that is already circulating? Will the Middle East Quartet – composed of the U.S., the EU, Russia and the UN – approve of the outcome document? Will a UN Security Council subsequently approve of the outcome document before January 20, 2017?

The French meeting follows on President Obama helping to ram through a UN Security Council resolution on December 23, 2016 that was clearly intended to unleash a legal and economic pogrom against the Jewish state. It didn’t take long for Palestinian terrorists to get the message: sidelining a negotiated solution between the parties by strong-arming an Israeli villain at the UN was a greenlight for the enforcers in Gaza City and Ramallah.

President Obama’s collusion on round-two jettisons decades of bipartisan policy prioritizing a negotiated path to Arab-Israeli peace, and flies in the face of overwhelming bipartisan opposition in Congress reconfirmed by the House just last week. Since the point of this flurry of international activity by UN-firsters is to scuttle and deny President Trump’s foreign policy remit, would-be participants in the French mugging of the Jewish state need to know – now – what they should expect five days later on January 20, 2017.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has already made calls to the incoming team and expects to be high-up on the list of early visitors welcomed to the White House in the spring. EU countries will similarly come asking for help easing post-Brexit fallout, tackling refugee problems, and buttressing security needs. The Middle East Quartet is desperate to continue its role supervising the Arab-Israeli conflict and to avoid a return to sole American custody. The UN is an economic ward of the United States – to the tune of upwards of 10 billion a year – currently parked in the middle of a place many diplomats prefer to home.

'Russian Hacking' Scandal Is Just Political Grandstanding Against Trump
By Ron Paul

While I am not a supporter of President-Elect Trump, I am a supporter of sorting out the truth. When it comes to the 'Russian hacking' allegations, I agree with Julian Assange that there just isn't any evidence or proof that has been provided. 

Since the end of World War II up until the year 2000, the U.S. government meddled in 81 different elections around the world. Perhaps we Americans should focus on what our own government does instead of stirring up trouble with outsiders for political advantages.

I discuss in detail below:

Kellyanne Conway brushes off Obama’s childish behavior, hints at a Trump – Russia détente

January 10, 2017

Kellyanne Conway indicated that Trump may reconsider some of the Russian sanctions President Obama had ordered.

Donald Trump’s top adviser Kellyanne Conway, spoke with USA Today ahead of, what will be, the final stretch towards inauguration day. In the interview Conway discusses Barack Obama’s final days in office, Russian hacking, and the sore loser Democrats.

By now it is no secret that Barack Obama has decided on a scorched earth policy in his transition out of the White House…making sure that the soon to be President Trump inherits as many problems as possible. One of those problems being the “fake news” Russian hacker story conjured up by the outgoing POTUS.

“I predict that President Trump will want to make sure that our actions are proportionate to what occurred, based on what we know,” she told Capital Download. She said the steps Obama took, including ejecting 35 alleged Russian spies, were harsher than those he ordered after reported hacking by China and North Korea and suggested the reason for the difference was political.

Conway ridiculed a proposal by House and Senate Democrats on Monday to establish a bipartisan, independent commission to investigate the allegations against Russia. U.S. intelligence agencies last week reported that Moscow, under the direction of President Vladimir Putin, hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, then leaked them in an effort to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton and elect Trump. Trump has supported investigations by the House and Senate.

“It’s curious and a little bit humorous that Democrats would talk about anything bipartisan … given how they have vowed to obstruct everything we do,” she said, saying there already was “a great deal of information out there” about the hacking. “I do find it to be very ironic that the uptick and the hue-and-cry of ‘investigation’ and ‘information’ has occurred after the election results are in. …

“The fact is, the Democrats became super-duper interested in this entire issue after the election did not go the way they, quote, wanted and the way they expected.”
In discussing the outgoing president, Conway said she “absolutely” would watch Obama’s farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday — but with what sounded like a warning.

“It’s a great idea for him to do this because he knows that a great deal of what he did is not going to survive this next presidency, or maybe even this next month, in some cases,” she said. “You build a legacy not just by checking a box and passing legislation without a single vote from the other side. Legacies have to be sustained over time; they have to endure.”

She questioned whether Obama, once he leaves the Oval Office, should lead Democrats in critiquing his successor.
“It’s appropriate for any past president to weigh in as they feel comfortable and as appropriate,” she said, but then added: “I do recall that President George W. Bush gave a great deal of latitude and courtesy to President Obama, and basically said, ‘I’m not the president anymore; give him his chance to run the country.’ We’d like the same.”

RE: Next President of the United Fates of America - Wook - 01-10-2017

Quote:[1/10/17]  Liberals are decrying a major legislative change they championed in 2013 because it’s setting President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet choices up for easy confirmation hearings.

The then-Democratic Senate, led by former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, passed a historic rule in 2013 called, “the nuclear option,” which eliminated the use of the filibuster on all presidential nominees except those to the U.S. Supreme Court. While at the time liberals loved the rule for allowing President Barack Obama to push through key nominations, they are now livid. The nuclear option allows Trump, with a Republican Senate, to have his appointments confirmed with a simple majority vote.

Republicans wholeheartedly opposed the nuclear option in 2013, which effectively left them with no recourse when Obama named his executive and judicial nominees, the Washington Free Beacon reports. Under the nuclear option, Supreme Court picks and legislation still need 60 votes to be filibuster-proof, but Cabinet appointments can be approved with just 51 votes. The Republicans have over 51 seats in Congress currently.

At the time, Reid said the rule was necessary. The “American people believe the Senate is broken, and I believe the American people are right,” Reid told reporters. “It’s time to get the Senate working again.” The liberal media was behind Reid and his fellow Democrats, applauding the rule change as something necessary for America’s democratic system.

The investigation into former Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server will continue into 2017, Rep. Jason Chaffetz said in a statement to reporters.

Arrow “Just because there was a political election doesn’t mean it goes away, so of course I am going to continue to pursue that,” the Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform stated Monday, according to NBC News.

Chaffetz along with other House members have been actively pursuing potential perjury charges against the former Secretary of State, believing she willfully lied regarding her private email server during congressional testimony on the Benghazi debacle in 2015.

“It was potentially one of the largest breaches in security in the history of the State Department. It cannot and should not be repeated ever again,” Chaffetz told reporters. “There are still open questions that we need to finish up so they won’t happen again.”

Peak ‘Fake News’: BuzzFeed, CNN Target Trump with Admittedly Unverifiable Russia ‘Memos’


Naughty Pennywise Naughty

Quote:It did not take long for Trump to take to Twitter to call out the ridiculous and gross story about Moscow Hotel “golden showers” that Buzzfeed and CNN decided to spread around the world.
The story is now being completely debunked everywhere, but the neo-liberal news sites that ran with the unverified report, did their work for the deep state, which is in full panic mode for what will be four years of a Trump presidency.
Here is Trump’s response on Twitter…

Once again we see the President-elect taking his reaction to the “fake news” lies from CNN and Buzzfeed straight to the American people.
Matt Drudge weighed in on the “witch hunt” with his own, rare tweet…
Quote:Are corrupt US intel agencies blackmailing Trump with their own dirt cleverly tagged to ‘Russian’ operatives?

Mark Dice blasted the fake news story in a video report, noting that the liberal media…
Quote:–“are spreading a 4 Chan hoax about Donald Trump, claiming that Russia has video of him getting golden showers from prostitutes, and have blackmailed him with the tape, as if were a real story. The Fake News story was started by Buzzfeed, who fell for the fake “document” and the claims have been shamefully repeated on countless other media outlets around the world.”

RE: Next President of the United Fates of America - Wook - 01-11-2017

That the so-called “dossier” on Donald Trump, which Buzzfeed has published in full, is largely the inventions of a single individual is easily established by reading its contents.

The author of the dossier – a former British intelligence agent who now claims to run his own ‘intelligence gathering’ network – claims to have inside knowledge of private discussions in the Kremlin and of the contents of confidential FSB files.  He claims to have been provided this information by a number of high placed Russian insiders.  Were all this true one would have to conclude that the Russian government – historically one of the world’s most secretive – leaks like a sieve.
That idea is frankly preposterous, and I doubt that there is anyone who is genuinely familiar with the way the Russian government operates who believes it.

In fact the dossier bears all the hallmarks of invention: the multiple sources whose identities are not revealed, the sex orgies the occurrence of which can neither be confirmed nor easily refuted, the extraordinary amount of circumstantial detail intended to suggest that the author is genuinely well-informed and to make the narrative feel plausible, the weaving into the narrative of actual events (Sergey Ivanov’s resignation in August), the contradictions as the author struggles to reconcile the narrative with developing events (in July it is Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov who is frightened of being sacked as he is blamed by Sergey Ivanov for the Clinton leaks scandal; in August it is Sergey Ivanov who is instead sacked as he is blamed by Putin for the scandal), the factual errors (eg. the misspelling of the name of Alfa Bank) etc.
As regularly happens when concoctions of this kind are exposed to the light of day, the falsehoods start to become evident and the narrative falls apart.  For example an exceptionally detailed description of a secret conversation Donald Trump’s attorney is supposed to have had with a Russian government agent in Prague has been exposed as a complete fabrication following the revelation that the attorney in question has never in fact been to Prague.
The big question is not whether the facts in this dossier are true or not; it is the extent to which the paranoid claims made in the dossier have shaped and might even have been the origin for the whole Russian hacking scandal.
I say this because media reports confirm that the dossier or extracts from it have circulated amongst US politicians (including Hillary Clinton and John McCain), US intelligence agencies, and within the media for weeks if not months.  The earliest reports in the dossier are dated to July, which suggests that some of its claims – which include circumstantial details of who supposedly within the Russian government was behind the Clinton leaks – were already circulating early in the summer.  That is a very early point in the Russian hacking story, making it at least possible that the dossier at least influenced the thinking of some of the people in the US intelligence community and in the media who have been pushing the Russian hacking scandal most aggressively.
Many have remarked on the absence of evidence in the ONDI report which was published last Friday.  Even Masha Gessen – one of President Putin’s most relentless critics – has pointed this out.
Publication of this dossier looks like an attempt to provide “evidence” which the ODNI report failed to do.  If so then that at least gives rise to the possibility that the dossier is the “evidence” – or more correctly a part of the evidence – that formed the background to the ONDI report but which the ODNI report omitted.
Whatever the truth of this, the fact that an obviously concocted dossier like this has circulated for weeks if not months with its source apparently still considered “unimpeachable” and “reliable” by the West’s intelligence agencies shows how wildly paranoid and ignorant about Russia the West’s intelligence agencies and its politicians and journalists have become.
Fantasy has replaced truth, and it seems that a clever fabricator out to make money has successfully cashed in on it, quite possibly doing serious harm along the way

watching the Trump news press Q&A session this morning.

He is still entertaining ... that is good!


Quote:If Vladimir Putin likes me ... that's an asset

True, and that is a good thing.

Quote:The Russians hacked Hillary's emails

He said it for the whole nation to hear,
and it won't change anything, he is going to try and thaw relations with Russia.
That is a good thing as well.
He is being strategically politically correct by saying that,
appeasing the security apparatus in the US and congress.


Quote:Does anyone really think that I wouldn't be tougher on Poo-tin Horsepoop  than Hillary?

The first time Putin burns Trump, Putin will regret it,
and you will see a whole different Donald Trump.
It will go a lot farther than sanctions, if that happens.
It all comes down to how much the Russians can restrain themselves from their cold war KGB habits.
KGB is old dog white collar Kriminal Kremlin Klowndom,
and they don't know how to operate anything other than with subterfuge and dirty tricks. 
Putin may change that if relations do thaw.
Trump reaching out to Putin is a good thing.
Will the Russians try and take more than they are given?
It all starts with the sanctions,
and how Trump works around those.

As far as ISIS is concerned,
the Russian military wants to be in charge of Syrian operations.
US military generals will never go for that.
They would have to carve up sections of Syria for both militaries to cleanse of the Ghouls.
Then the US would retreat their air war and ground operatives back into Iraq,
and give it all to Assad and Iran.
This is what I find to be the most interesting event of the war to anticipate.
Giving Iran such a powerful foothold in Syria is counterintuitive to US and Israeli security.
Trump has a tough road to navigate.

If Putin and Trump can get along and thaw the Cold War,
it would be a good thing.

With Iran in the mix as occupiers in Syria,
and Turkey in the mix in northern Syria going after the Kurds once ISIS is dismantled in Raqqa,,
I see an unprecedented debacle on the horizon.

RE: Next President of the United Fates of America - Wook - 01-11-2017
Late last night, some government workers were hard at work. Yep, that is the best time to release information you want absolutely no one to read… but we read it anyway!
The FBI released more documents related to the investigation into Hillary Clinton. The report stated “hostile foreign actors” garnered access into her personal email accounts AND of individuals with whom the Democrat presidential candidate regularly corresponded, as per LawNewz.
Did foreign hackers get into the DNC email system BECAUSE of Hillary Clinton and her unsecured home-brew server? Such a scenario now seems highly likely, folks. No wonder the Obama-controlled CIA head does not want to share exactly how they learned who hacked into the email of Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta.
The revelation about the hacking should have been huge news. After all, the mainstream media have been talking about virtually nothing but the Russian hackers for weeks now.
The newly released Hillary Clinton documents can be found in full on the agency’s website.  The documents also contain information relating to the FBI investigation into the career politician AFTER they received additional emails from Clinton’s attorney and her computer hardware.
There are five sets of Hillary documents released by the FBI. The first set revealed 940 emails associated with Hillary Clinton’s personal account from October 25, 2010 to December 31, 2010; a total of 56 have been identified as currently at the confidential level.
Also, 302 of the 940 emails in the FBI document dump, identified in the Gmail account, were not found in the set of emails produced to the State Department in 2014. Why not? Will she be charged with withholding information or obstruction of justice?
One of those 302 emails Hillary Clinton did not turn over, as mandated, was classified as secret. We don’t know what the classified email said, but apparently some other country does!
The FBI released the Hillary Clinton documents without even issuing a press release about the material now being publicly available, much less the shocking particulars contained inside. During the latter days of the presidential race, the DOJ and FBI stated repeatedly there was no proof any foreign entity had garnered access to the emails, but now suddenly they know a non-American bad actor had gotten a peek?
The amount of classified information a hostile foreign government could now have in their hands because of Hillary Clinton’s secretive private server is terrifying.
If Clinton regularly corresponded with Obama, intelligence officials, and world leaders, which she did, our enemies could now know far more about what is going on inside the United States government than We the People do!

“I would be too,” he said. “That’s why we didn’t publish any of the details.”

Acosta later tweeted that he got another reporter to ask the question. 
He told CNN that Trump's spokesman Sean Spicer threatened to eject him from the press conference Applause
if he tried asking another question.

CNN has sought some distance from BuzzFeed on Wednesday, 

saying they were "fully confident" in their own reporting 
and calling on Trump and his team to "identify, specifically, what they believe is inaccurate" 
in the network's coverage.

I liked Trump's first news conference,
and I laughed out loud on the part of him telling the CNN clown that they were fake news.

Anderson Stupor at CNN had Kelly Anne Conway on for CNN damage control,
and it had to be apparent to CNN that at the news conference by Trump,
people were applauding his handling of these issues and how he dealt with CNN.

Man, it was showtime today by Trump, and he did very well in my opinion.

CNN, BuzzFeed Publish ‘Golden Shower’ Rumors,  Rofl
Other Media Outlets Mock Them

Quote:In an article published on Wednesday in the New York Times,
the paper took BuzzFeed to task on journalistic ethics, 
regarding their publication of the 35-page dossier.

“BuzzFeed’s decision, 

besides its immediate political ramifications for a president-elect 
who is to be inaugurated in 10 days, 
was sure to accelerate a roiling debate about the role and credibility of the traditional media 
in today’s frenetic, polarized information age,” the Times reported. 

The paper of record then flat out accuses CNN Tp  and BuzzFeed  Tp 
of stooping to the level of the so-called “fake news.” 

“Of particular interest was the use of unsubstantiated information from anonymous sources, 
a practice that fueled some of the so-called fake news — 
false rumors passed off as legitimate journalism — 
that proliferated during the presidential election,” the report continued. 

Georgetown University journalism professor Christopher Chambers 
has described the BuzzFeed story 
as a “metaphor for the race to the bottom” in American journalism.

David Corn of Mother Jones referenced the dossier as far back as October 2016, 
but chose not to publish the contents of the report as he could not confirm the details contained within it.

Other highly-respected journalists weighed in on the lack of ethics.

“An anonymous person, 

claiming to be an ex-British intel agent & working as a Dem oppo researcher, 

said anonymous people told him things,” 

award-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted.

Brad Heath, an investigative reporter for USA Today responded to the story, 
and the note contained within that there is serious reason to doubt the allegations, 
and that they had not been verified.

“Not how journalism works: 

Here’s a thing that might or might not be true, 

without supporting evidence; 

decide for yourself if it's legit,” 

Heath tweeted. 

Even the Huffington Post, openly hostile toward the President-elect now and throughout the election season, 

noted that “there’s still no compelling public evidence that the claims are true.” 

During a Wednesday morning news conference, 

both the incoming White House press secretary and communications director Sean Spicer, 

as well as President-elect Trump, 

slammed the report and the publications that released it. 

“The fact that BuzzFeed and CNN made the decision to run with this unsubstantiated claim 

is a sad and pathetic attempt to get clicks. 

The report is not an intelligence report, plain and simple,” Spicer said. 

Chambers has an explanation as to why some outlets choose to run with unsubstantiated stories, 
and it all comes down to ratings. 

“But now everyone in corporate mass media in America has decided 
that various outlets and people who deal on bullhorn gossip and innuendo 
are beating the legacy big boys in ratings. 
So to feed their business models and their egos they feel they must emulate it. 
Or function as bullhorns themselves rather than the ‘watchdogs’ the press should be. 
That's the yin and yang of our First Amendment: 
protection in return for responsibility,” 
Chambers told Sputnik News. 
“Soon American may have neither.”

I watched a replay of Trump's news conference.
He made the broadly applicable statement,
"You should know...I have a germ phobia."

The fake news thing about Trump and the golden showers Rofl
was hilarious and so obviously untrue.
Sensationalist lies depends on idiots repeating them,
but then it depends on your viewpoint of what are sensationalist lies,
and who the idiots are.

I have old friends out here that are so upset about Trump being elected,
they cannot watch him or talk about him anymore because they get too upset Rofl
To them,
Trump is a sensationalist liar and anybody who supports him is an idiot.

When you ask them about criminal specifics on Hillary,
they understand to a degree, but just cannot admit it fully to themselves,
and still consider Trump to be a bigger crook.

RE: Next President of the United Fates of America - Wook - 01-12-2017

McCain was "so concerned" about the information contained within the 35-page dossier, that he passed the information onto the FBI.

John McCain hates Donald Trump.

Donald Trump did what John McCain could not…win the US Presidency.

Donald Trump will undo the evil John McCain has been doing for his entire career.

Trump vows to put an end to destructive US regime change operations, stamp out government corruption, and drain the swamp.
A swamp creature like John McCain is obviously upset.
It should come then as no surprise that the person now claiming responsibility for bringing the “fake news” Buzzfeed article to life is US Senator John McCain.
What was thought to be a 4Chan trolling operation is now looking more like a US Congress smear campaign, aimed at killing two birds with one “fake news” stone. Humiliate Trump, villanize Russia.
Reports are now flooding the internet confirming that  John McCain admitted that he passed on the fraudulent dossier about a Russian blackmail plot against Donald Trump to the FBI, calling it ‘what any citizen should do’.
You can be certain that if McCain passed it on to the FBI, than he most certainly could have “accidentally” passed it on to various press outlets.
The 80-year-old Republican war-hawk neocon senator said that he was simply acting as a ‘concerned citizen’, when the document magically came across his desk.
McCain claims that he received the document and gave it directly to FBI Director James Comey, because he was ‘unable to make judgment about accuracy’.
Washington reporter Carl Bernstein provides a different narrative to McCain’s ‘concerned citizen’ story.
Bernstein claims that a former British ambassador to Moscow handed the document to McCain, which coincidently was a paid for hit-piece by Republican enemies of Trump, turned into a hit-piece by Democrats (aka the Hillary Clinton campaign).
The British Ambassador who passed on the report to McCain has not been named.
McCain told CNN (the “fake news” network that, along with Buzzfeed, broke the story)…
Quote:“I did what any citizen should do. I received sensitive information and handed it to the FBI.”
“That’s why I gave it to the FBI. I don’t know if it is credible or not but the information I thought deserved to be delivered to the FBI, the appropriate agency of government.”
“It doesn’t trouble me because I don’t know if it is accurate or not. I have no way of corroborating that.”
“The individual gave me the information. I looked at it. After receiving that information I took it to the FBI.”
John McCain issued a public statement with a brief timeline of events explaining how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims, came to be published by Buzzfeed and then broadcast by CNN…
Quote:“Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public.”
“Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI.”
“That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”
The Daily Mail reports that “the 2008 Republican loser, who disowned his party’s candidate weeks before the election, may have been far more intimately involved than that.” 
Quote:The chain of how the document reached the FBI is not officially known.
However Carl Bernstein, the Watergate reporter who contributed to the first story about its existence, published by CNN on Tuesday afternoon, suggested that McCain was handed it by a former British ambassador to Moscow.
Bernstein told CNN: ‘It came from a former British MI6 agent who was hired from a political opposition research firm in Washington who was doing work about Donald Trump for both republican and democratic candidates opposed to Trump.
‘They were looking at Trumps business ties, they saw some questionable things about Russians, about his businesses in Russia, they in turn hired this MI6 former investigator, he then came up with additional information from his Russian sources, he was very concerned by the implications of it, he then took it to an FBI colleague that he had known in his undercover work for years, he took it to this FBI man in Rome who turned it over to the bureau in Washington in August.
‘And then, a former British ambassador to Russia independently was made aware of these findings and he took the information to John McCain – Senator John McCain of Arizona – in the period just after the election, and showed it to McCain – additional findings.
‘McCain was sufficiently disturbed by what he read to take it to FBI director James Comey himself personally, they had a five minute meeting the two men, very little was said, McCain turned it over to him and is now awaiting what the FBI’s response is to that information.’
The identity of the former British ambassador has not been disclosed.
Only one former British ambassador to Moscow remains in UK government service, Sir Tim Barrow, who went on to be Foreign Office political director and is now Britain’s ambassador to the European Union.
The Daily Mail UK has a timeline of John McCain’s ongoing feud with President-elect Trump…
Quote:JULY 18,  2015
Donald Trump questions John McCain’s war record claiming: ‘He’s not a war hero.
‘He’s a war hero because he was captured? I like people who weren’t captured.’
AUGUST 1, 2016
McCain continues to endorse Trump’s campaign, even though Trump attacked the Gold Star family of Captain Humayan Khan who was killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq in 2004
OCTOBER 8, 2016
McCain withdrew his endorsement of Trump after audio of the reality TV star was leaked including the phrase ‘grab her by the p****’
DECEMBER 9, 2016
McCain meets FBI Director James Comey and hands over the Kremlin dossier assembled by a former British spy
No big surprise as to how all of this is playing out.
Wherever filth and deception resides John McCain is not far behind…

▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ ⟶
In January, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his farewell address after serving two terms as U.S. president; the five-star general chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decadelong escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further.
This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as “Fake News.”
Their most valuable instrument is the U.S. media, much of which reflexively reveres, serves, believes, and sides with hidden intelligence officials. And Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing — eager — to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be.
The serious dangers posed by a Trump presidency are numerous and manifest. There are a wide array of legitimate and effective tactics for combatting those threats: from bipartisan congressional coalitions and constitutional legal challenges to citizen uprisings and sustained and aggressive civil disobedience. All of those strategies have periodically proven themselves effective in times of political crisis or authoritarian overreach.
But cheering for the CIA and its shadowy allies to unilaterally subvert the U.S. election and impose its own policy dictates on the elected president is both warped and self-destructive. Empowering the very entities that have produced the most shameful atrocities and systemic deceit over the last six decades is desperation of the worst kind. Demanding that evidence-free, anonymous assertions be instantly venerated as Truth — despite emanating from the very precincts designed to propagandize and lie — is an assault on journalism, democracy, and basic human rationality. And casually branding domestic adversaries who refuse to go along as traitors and disloyal foreign operatives is morally bankrupt and certain to backfire on those doing it.
Beyond all that, there is no bigger favor that Trump opponents can do for him than attacking him with such lowly, shabby, obvious shams, recruiting large media outlets to lead the way. When it comes time to expose actual Trump corruption and criminality, who is going to believe the people and institutions who have demonstrated they are willing to endorse any assertions no matter how factually baseless, who deploy any journalistic tactic no matter how unreliable and removed from basic means of ensuring accuracy?
All of these toxic ingredients were on full display yesterday as the Deep State unleashed its tawdriest and most aggressive assault yet on Trump: vesting credibility in and then causing the public disclosure of a completely unvetted and unverified document, compiled by a paid, anonymous operative while he was working for both GOP and Democratic opponents of Trump, accusing Trump of a wide range of crimes, corrupt acts and salacious private conduct. The reaction to all of this illustrates that while the Trump presidency poses grave dangers, so, too, do those who are increasingly unhinged in their flailing, slapdash, and destructive attempts to undermine it.
For months, the CIA, with unprecedented clarity, overtly threw its weight behind Hillary Clinton’s candidacy and
Quote:While some Democrats sounded notes of caution — party loyalist Josh Marshall commendably urged: “I would say in reviewing raw, extremely raw ‘intel’, people shld retain their skepticism even if they rightly think Trump is the worst” — the overwhelming reaction was the same as all the other instances where the CIA and its allies released unverified claims about Trump and Russia: instant embrace of the evidence-free assertions as Truth, combined with proclamations that it demonstrated Trump’s status as a traitor (with anyone expressing skepticism designated a Kremlin agent or stooge).
There is a real danger here that this maneuver can harshly backfire, to the great benefit of Trump and to the great detriment of those who want to oppose him. If any of the significant claims in this “dossier” turn out to be provably false — such as Cohen’s trip to Prague — many people will conclude, with Trump’s encouragement, that large media outlets (CNN and BuzzFeed) and anti-Trump factions inside the government (CIA) are deploying “Fake News” to destroy him. In the eyes of many people, that will forever discredit — render impotent — future journalistic exposés that are based on actual, corroborated wrongdoing.
Beyond that, the threat posed by submitting ourselves to the CIA and empowering it to reign supreme outside of the democratic process is — as Eisenhower warned — an even more severe danger. The threat of being ruled by unaccountable and unelected entities is self-evident and grave. That’s especially true when the entity behind which so many are rallying is one with a long and deliberate history of lying, propaganda, war crimes, torture, and the worst atrocities imaginable.
All of the claims about Russia’s interference in U.S. elections and ties to Trump should be fully investigated by a credible body, and the evidence publicly disclosed to the fullest extent possible. As my colleague Sam Biddle argued last week after disclosure of the farcical intelligence community report on Russia hacking — one which even Putin’s foes mocked as a bad joke — the utter lack of evidence for these allegations means “we need an independent, resolute inquiry.” But until then, assertions that are unaccompanied by evidence and disseminated anonymously should be treated with the utmost skepticism — not lavished with convenience-driven gullibility.
Most important of all, the legitimate and effective tactics for opposing Trump are being utterly drowned by these irrational, desperate, ad hoc crusades that have no cogent strategy and make his opponents appear increasingly devoid of reason and gravity. Right now, Trump’s opponents are behaving as media critic Adam Johnson described: as ideological jelly fish, floating around aimlessly and lost, desperately latching on to whatever barge randomly passes by.
There are solutions to Trump. They involve reasoned strategizing and patient focus on issues people actually care about. Whatever those solutions are, venerating the intelligence community, begging for its intervention, and equating their dark and dirty assertions as Truth are most certainly not among them. Doing that cannot possibly achieve any good, and is already doing much harm.

Arrow “Just because there was a political election doesn’t mean it goes away, so of course I am going to continue to pursue that,” the Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform stated Monday, according to NBC News.

Arrow Chaffetz also claimed the committee would continue its investigation into the Fast and Furious gun running operation that took place under former US Attorney General Eric Holder, which is believed to have claimed the lives of some 200 people in Mexico.

Trump on Lindsey Graham: "He's gonna crack that 1-percent... by sonofthebronx CBS 2 News at Noon CBS



Nine days before CNN parent Time Warner will have to negotiate with Donald Trump’s antitrust cops, the cable news network got a dressing down by the President-elect.

 “Your organization is terrible,” Trump told CNN reporter Jim Acosta when he tried to ask a question during Wednesday’s news conference.

“Quiet, quiet,” Trump admonished when it was clear the journalist would not be chosen for a question.
As Acosta persisted, Trump said, “Don’t be rude.” When that didn’t work, Trump barked: “You are fake news.”

The confrontation grew from a controversial story CNN published Tuesday about Trump being presented at a Jan. 6 meeting with intelligence experts a two-page synopsis with allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information on the president-elect.

Both Trump and Russian authorities called the claims nonsense.

While Trump’s rebuke was stark enough, it came as his Justice Department will start to investigate the antitrust implications of AT&T’s $85 billion merger with Time Warner.

Trump said on the campaign trail that he wouldn’t approve the deal.

It was much debated in media circles if the press conference run-in would move the needle on Trump’s stance.
