The FATHER of all Bombs

The US just dropped a 21,600-pound conventional bomb in Afghanistan.
The bomb, the Massive Ordinance Air Blast, nicknamed the "Mother of All Bombs" because of its acronym, is the largest nonnuclear bomb in the US's arsenal. But Russia has an even bigger one.
The so-called father of all bombs is thought to be about four times as big as the MOAB. It's a thermobaric bomb with a destruction radius of nearly 1,000 feet and a blast yield of nearly 44 tons of TNT.
Thermobaric weapons differ from conventional bombs in that they combine with atmospheric oxygen to greatly extend the blast radius.
Developed in 2007, the FOAB explodes in midair, igniting a fuel-air mixture. It is designed to vaporize targets and collapse structures, producing powerful blasts and aftershocks but without the radioactive fallout of a nuclear weapon.
Watch the FOAB explode here:

btw... I enlisted and have an HONORABLE Medical Discharge.

I KNOW, not "believe" that the CFR, DOD, CIA, NSA, MOSSAD, Saudi Arabia, actually DEMOLISHED 4 buildings in NYC for Israeli Larry Silverstein and the rest of ZIONISTS agenda.  One only has to look at WHO we are supporting in Middle East to understand we ARE Israeli's BITCH.

For Bob:
Jew News <--->  Hi    <---- Syrian general that defected to the west
Defected Syrian General --- 
Syria retains hundreds of tons of chemical weapons


I stayed away from your WW3 thread as a gesture,
and let you guys wallow in your Iranian and Syrian pig fuck shit propaganda trough,
so that you could bathe freely in that cesspool of stench and diseased mentality.

You bask in a fantasy dream land of Russian weaponry,
that they then sell to Iran and Syria, Wook.

Iran is a mortal enemy of the USA,'
but you are too blinded by Russian propaganda to accept that,
even though on every opportunity the Iranians chant Death To America.

If you had the choice,
you would make Putin the president of the USA.

You don't know shit Tp   about chemical weapons W o o k .

As a matter of fact you don't know shit,
past whatever Assad and Putin feeds you in their propaganda,
in this world of politics or war.

That is all you know how to do in political thinking.
In this Syrian war,
Assad thinks for you <---> and you repeat his poison.

Your vision is bilnded by the most rank and illegitimate Syrian military propaganda.
Syria, the most direct allie of Iranian influence,
with Iranian mullahs who chant:
"Death to America" at every chance.
That is essentially what you support when you support Assad who works for Iran.

They have a place for you there in Iran, Wook.
It is called a jail cell for stupid Americans that become tools of Iranian trash talk.

Placing too many Iranian forces in Syria guarantees a war with Iran,
and Israel.

Assad and the AyaGhoulah would kill both of you immediately, 
no matter how much the two of you slobber and kiss at their crusty toenails.
They would call you CIA spies no matter how much you offered to suck Assad's dick,
and bend over for the Ayaghoulah.

Show some Balls,
and just go join Snowden in Moscow,
the Russians would welcome you there and put you both to work in the army,
and protect you from the evil Americans.

Quote:Too bad you didn't have the Balls to join the Military

My dad was in the military for 30 years,

and I grew up in the military,
and have been around more soldiers and military life than you ever have come close to Wook. 

Each and every military family that was stationed in the USA or overseas in Europe,
all endeavored to make sure that their children,
did not join the military and lead the life that their dads did, 
{who joined in WW2 and Korean wars}
working 10-12 hour days and fighting wars.

That is what happens with military families.
They teach their children to make a better life for themselves.
And that I did.
I watched my dad fly away to Vietnam from Fort Carson Colorado,
and he was patriotic indeed as a military man,
but he clearly did not want me to follow in that lifestyle.

You joined the military Wook,
because you couldn't cut it in the real world and needed military guidance.
You didn't make it very far.
How many times ... did you re-up?


Wook, your military experience gets you absolutely nothing.
You were a common low rank soldier that didn't know dick from being dumbed down.

Every US military general AND soldier in the army navy and air force right now
would condemn almost every bullshit statement you make,
here on this thread,
in support of Assad and Iran. 

So when you make claims for fame for being private first class Sad Sack shit head,
in your short stint in the military,
you have no support or basis for any credit,
from any US military personel active in the potential theater of coming wars.


So yesterday Russia  and Iran and Syria 
all declared that there would be
"serious consequences"
for any further American military strikes on Assad.

What you did not see was a united statement from them about the obvious lies,
from the Syrian military,
on the fabricated US coalition strike on an ISIS chem weapons site.
nix und nein you boneheaded heine holes.

That is why the Russians are not trying to pursue that in the UN.
It didn't happen.
But the two of you are too blind when to disseminate Assad's lies and propaganda,
from reality and obvious disinformation.

For Bob:
Jew News <--->  Hi    <---- Syrian general that defected to Israel
Defected Syrian General --- 
Syria retains hundreds of tons of chemical weapons

Quote:Syrian President Bashar Assad 
still possesses hundreds of tons of chemical agents 
which he hid from the international community, 
a former Syrian general who specialized in chemical warfare told the Telegraph Friday.

Brig. Gen. Zaher al-Sakat, 
who defected from Assad’s forces in 2013 
and currently resides in an undisclosed European country, 
told the newspaper the Syrian leader had deceived United Nations inspectors 
sent into the country to destroy his chemical stockpiles.

who was head of chemical warfare Whip in the Syrian army’s Fifth Division, 
has long claimed that Assad secretly held on to much of his stash. 
And after an April 4 suspected chemical attack killed at least 87 people, 
the defector has said the regime still has hundreds of tons of chemicals at hand.

“They admitted only to 1,300 tons, 
but we knew in reality they had nearly double that,” 
Sakat told the Telegraph. 
“They had at least 2,000 tons. 
At least.”

Sakat said that according to his contacts inside Syria, 
Assad has not manufactured new weapons since 2014, 
but “they don’t need any more, they have all they need already.”

Sakat has said in the past that he himself was ordered to carry out chemical strikes 
on three different occasions before he defected. 
In those instances he switched out the deadly agents in the bombs for harmless chemicals.

“I couldn’t believe at the beginning that Assad would use these weapons on his people,” 

he said. 
“I could not stand and watch the genocide. 
I couldn’t hurt my own people.”

So, is that all propaganda?
Former Syrian Brigadier general in charge of chemical warfare who defected?
It very well may be just a quick payday from a Dancing Dershowitz,
that the general received from Mossad ... to outright lie.

Nonetheless, he defected from Assad's military.
He did that because he sees Assad for what Assad is.
A genocidal maniac and soulless Ghoul.



This concerns the gas attack by Assad forces in Idlib about a week ago now.

First, Assad states that his air force bombed the site,
and that it was a chem weapons storage site operated by al-Nusra.

He admits that a lot of civilians were killed,
in the gas release.
Yet in all that,
with Assad claiming that nerve gas was stored at the site,
and all those civilians and babies died on site from bombardment of released fumes,
still claims that all the video's were fake and that everybody was acting,
and that "it was all staged"
including the children clearly seen choking and dieing.

You can't have it both ways.
Assad knows that were a lot of casualties to gas exposure.

Assad admits his forces hit a gas weapons storage site,
that 80 + men, women and children died on site,
but that 
all the video's were faked and all the actors were staged   Nonono

Those dieing babies would need an Oscar for their performances.

So what Assad is trying to say,
is that although all those people died on site,
from bombs dropped on purported al-Nusra gas weapon storage / production site,
that all "100%" of the video evidence of the gas release was fake.
He has clearly stated that many times.

Well that is obviously counterintuitive to any common sense assessment,
and Assad 
would not have had to demand that the videos were faked as he did,  <--- Whip
if al-Nusra 
was actually responsible <---
for the gas weapons storage site that exploded,
then those video's are evidence in Assad's favor, <-----
proving that al-Nusra gas weapons 
killed their own people there,
by having the storage site there in the first place.

Yet, Assad attempts to propagandise the videos as fakes,
when in essence,
they are his best evidence that al-Nusra had chemical weapons that killed babies.  

You guys are so fucking blind.
Anything that the Syrian military claims, you consider to be the truth,
from a genocidal butcher and murderer's regime. 

Where are the Russian drone reports of the Syrian military claims,
that ISIS gas storage was hit by coalition sources?
Where is Tass and claiming that the US coalition hit a gas weapons storage site?
They don't.
Only Tass is very careful to state that the info comes from the Syrian military.
It has been two days now,
and the latest reports
go nowhere near claiming that US coalition even bombed the area.

Why aren't the Russians taking their Syrian evidence to the UN?

Why aren't the Russians saying anything about it at the UN?

This should be a grand opportunity for the Russians to score a propaganda coup,
on the international stage at the UN,
on the US airstrike earlier this week. 

WHY would the Russians back away from such an opportunity,
to completely thrash Trump's bombing of the Syrian air base,
on their international media propaganda venues?

Russia knows better, that's why.

So Assad claims that video evidence in the first gas deaths are fake,
but has no video evidence of any sort in the ISIS example 2 days ago,
from either overhead Syrian surveillance [Image: whip.gif]
or Russian drone surveillance [Image: whip.gif]
or Russian satellite surtveillance [Image: whip.gif]

For Assad, no evidence whatsoever, is the only evidence he can present in this case.

Russia has a unique opportunity,
to take the US coalition to the task and kick butt at the UN,
on this purported US coalition attack on ISIS gas storage site, 
but they aren't doing shit or shinola in that direction,
because they understand the Assad regime is making shit up all the time in propaganda lies.

Until the Russian completely back up Assad on these claims,
it is all bullshit,
I am more than willing to review the Russian evidence if their drones produce it.

It would be a major propaganda victory for Putin
to thrash Trunp and the US air strikes on Assad's base,
with any new evidence of US air strikes ...
causing gas weapons releases at ISIS storgae sites.

Bring it on, 
lets see if Russian takes this to the UN
like Haley did with pictures of dieing children,
and then I will begin to consider the possibility.


The Israeli's have something to say about Assad's air defense systems:
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has warned Syria 
that Israel 
will destroy its air defense system 
if Syria fires an anti-aircraft missile at Israeli aircraft again.
Quote: Wrote:Speaking on Israel public radio Sunday morning, Liberman said, 
"The next time the Syrians use their air defense systems against our airplanes, 
we will destroy all of them without thinking twice."

His threat comes after Syria fired anti-aircraft missiles 
at Israeli military jets overnight Thursday into Friday.
The Syrian military said the jets struck a military site near Palmyra, 
while Israel says they targeted a weapons shipment to Iran-backed Hezbollah. 
Syria claims their missiles downed one Israeli jet and hit another, 
which Israel rejected as "absolutely untrue."

It was another acknowledgment of Israel's ongoing operations in Syria. 
Last April, Netanyahu confirmed that Israel had struck Syria "dozens of times," 
breaking with the policy of remaining quiet about involvement in its war-torn northern neighbor.

In a video statement released Friday, 
Netanyahu was adamant in his defense of Israel's move to prevent weapons being supplied to Hezbollah. 
"When we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah 
and we have intelligence and it is operationally feasible, 
we act to prevent it," he said.

Could Rebel Media be up for a Pulitzer in Journalism?
2 days ago

lexikon08256 in news

Rebel Media has quite possibly produced a piece  in 2017 that could win the Pulitzer Prize for Journalism. The small news outfit has uncovered an illegal smuggling ring that takes refugees from the United States to the Canadian border. These refugees are then  willfully arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to enter Canada.


Rebel media went to a drop off point in Champlain, New York and begin seeing migrants dropped off by taxi companies. The investigative team then proceeds to Plattsburgh, New York to speak with a taxi company call Town Taxi. The company owner proceeds to inform Rebel Media they have contacts with American and Canadian law enforcement to help facilitate the migrants travel to the border. The owner even suggest their company will perform extra functions to insure the migrant has successful travel to Canada. He refused to elaborate on the exact nature of these extra services.
I don't want to spoil the whole video for those who may decide to watch it but I was astonished to learn that an NBC satellite facility (with trucks) is located within 15 seconds of Town Taxi and has yet to report on the migrant trafficking ring.
This was a truly maddening report to watch. The majority, if not all ,of the refugees shown in the video are fighting age men of Middle Eastern descent with some being Muslim. I believe anyone would be alarmed with the possibility of  a Radical Islamist entering their country under the guise of refugee status. Additionally, one has to wonder about the legality of Town Taxi's services. 
If you do watch this report and feel Town Taxi's actions are illegal, I would urge you to contact the Plattsburgh Police Department via phone (518) 563-3411 or share the Rebel Media Videoon their Facebook Page. Either way:Demand an Investigation into Town Taxi. Additionally, you can contact Town Taxi at (518)570-0000 or on their Facebook Page to express your displeasure with their actions. 
I urge you all to share the Rebel Media YouTube Video with those around you and also ask them to question why nothing is being done in regards to  Town Taxi involvement in the refugee smuggling ring.
Thank you to @derptard for posting the Rebel Media video and bringing it to my attention. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Picture Credits: John Hood, Caltrans graphic artist. Public Domain[/size][/size]

I also live CLOSER to Canadian border than Plattsburgh.  Only 1 mile away.

But this is interesting story.  I do know, first hand, that Tibetan and Chinese people stay past visas expiration.

hey Wook,
Goshawks favorite news source -- 
his primary source of political propaganda:
Jim Stone -- is an obvious NSA fly trap operation.

See the Jim Stone quotes,
at the bottom of this post <---

You had to be pretty stupid to spend 3 tours in Vietnam,
Every soldier I ever met that returned from Nam,
never wanted to go back.
... and I don't believe you anyways.

What makes me laugh out loud,
is that both you and Bob didn't see it coming.
See what coming?
You thought he would just sit there and say nothing to Assad gassing his own people.
You thought that the Trump fairy tale was going to kiss Putin's ass.

It is unfortunate that Trump's attempt at smoothing things with Putin has failed at this juncture.
The world would be a better place if that were so.
But it ain't gonna happen,
as long as Putin feeds weapons to Iran who feeds them to Hezbollah.

Did you notice Wook ...?
that Israel flies into Syria ---> with impunity  Hi
and bombs Hezbollah convoys whenever they want to.
Where are the Russian s-300 and s-400 air defense systems?
Just what kind of agreement did Putin make with Netanyahu?

Your gripe Wook, isn't with Trump,
it is with his generals advising him.

Where are the Russians at the UN on the bogus US coalition air strike,
on ISIS chem weapons storage site Wook?

You posted this story like it was real news.
It is Syrian military fake news.
You are fake news Wook.

This is the same shit that Goshawks would post.
Lies from the Syrian military.
What a pathetic way to look at the world.
The world ... according to Assad.
You should be ashamed of yourself.

I'm tired of throat slashing with you and Bob,
over a bloodthirsty genocidal maniac named Assad.

As a gesture I stayed away from both of your threads on Iraq, Iran, world war 3 etc.
At this point I need to consider myself even being here again.

It wasn't me that started all this being personal.
Note that it was Bob,
who initiated the use of nonsense bullshit negative feedbacks against me a few months ago,
like a silly schoolgirl complaining about losing her panties at the prom.

most repeatedly favorite source of news information -- Jim Stone Whip

quote -- 
near the top of his page right now:

Quote:The Quran is to a large extent a book of law.  Rofl ---> {shariah law}
And if you read the texts the founding fathers wrote, 
there is little, 
if anything in the Quran that is not compatible. 

All this talk about Shariah being horrible, 
is either the product of a spewing fool or an outright lie, 
if Shariah
was actually put in place in America 

and America actually followed it Nonono 
the biggest thing people would notice is that the swamp got drained. 

And the Federal Reserve would be gone 
and replaced with a financial system that did not bleed the people dry.

you favorite buddy Wook -- Goshawks -- was a Jim Stone propaganda pimp,
and Jim Stone is  a Shariah sympathizer.


Jim Stone is promoting Sharia Law as a venue to "drain the swamp" in America,
in his veiled defense of the Quran.

Like I said, Goshawks favorite news source,
Jim Stone,
is nothing more than an NSA flytrap for fools.

Yikes! New Behind-the-Scenes Book Brutalizes the Clinton Campaign

'Shattered,' a campaign tell-all fueled by anonymous sources, outlines a generational political disaster

Quote:Zerohedge reports that once again “WikiLeaks’ facts were facts and CIA/FBI facts were fake.”
Quote:Having exclaimed that WikiLeaks is “a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” laying the blame for every embarrassing leak at Moscow’s footsteps, the FBI and CIA have admitted that they are searching for an “insider” (not a Russian) who exposed thousands of top-secret documents that described CIA tools used to penetrate smartphones, smart televisions and computer systems.
CBS News reports that a manhunt is underway for a traitor inside the CIA…
Quote:Sources familiar with the investigation say it is looking for an insider — either a CIA employee or contractor — who had physical access to the material. The agency has not said publicly when the material was taken or how it was stolen.
Much of the material was classified and stored in a highly secure section of the intelligence agency, but sources say hundreds of people would have had access to the material. Investigators are going through those names.
The trove was published in March by the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks.
This is yet another big dent in the “Russia hacker” narrative peddled out by the liberal left nearly 8 months ago.

American Aya Hijazi and her husband Mohamed Hassanein waited 3 years in an Egyptian jail for Barack Obama to do something.
Donald Trump negotiated their release in less than 100 days.

WINNING: Trump Meets with American Freed from Egyptian Jail in No Quid Pro Quo Deal

Quote:The new Clinton campaign tell-all, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaignreveals how Hillary Clinton personally placed blame for her bruising defeat on Russian meddling “within twenty-four hours of her concession speech.”
The blistering behind-the-scenes book, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, illustrates how Hillary Clinton furiously blamed her defeat on the FBI investigation into her private emails, Russian interference, and Trump’s supposed support from “white nationalists.”

From Shattered:

On a phone call with a longtime friend a couple of days after the election, Hillary was much less accepting of her defeat. She put a fine point on the factors she believed cost her the presidency: the FBI (Comey), the KGB (the old name for Russia’s intelligence service), and the KKK (the support Trump got from white nationalists).

“I’m angry,” Hillary told her friend. And exhausted. After two brutal campaigns against Sanders and Trump, Hillary now had to explain the failure to friends in a seemingly endless round of phone calls. That was taking a toll on her already weary and grief-stricken soul. But mostly, she was mad— mad that she’d lost and that the country would have to endure a Trump presidency.

The authors detail how Clinton went out of her way to pass blame for her stunning loss on “Comey and Russia.”

“She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,” a longtime Clinton confidant is quoted as saying.
The book further highlights how Clinton’s Russia-blame-game was a plan hatched by senior campaign staffers John Podesta and Robby Mook, less than “within twenty-four hours” after she conceded:

That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.

The Clinton camp settled on a two-pronged plan — pushing the press to cover how “Russian hacking was the major unreported story of the campaign, overshadowed by the contents of stolen e-mails and Hillary’s own private-server imbroglio,” while “hammering the media for focusing so intently on the investigation into her e-mail, which had created a cloud over her candidacy,” the authors wrote.

“The press botched the e-mail story for eighteen months,” one person who was part of the strategy is quoted as saying. “Comey obviously screwed us, but the press created the story.”

The book also details Clinton’s confusion and frustration with President Obama, whom she apparently thought didn’t do enough “to apprise the public that the Russians had gone way beyond what had been reported”:

She wondered why the president hadn’t leaned harder into making the case that Vladimir Putin was specifically targeting her and trying to throw the election to Trump. “The Russia stuff has really bothered her a lot,” one of the aides said. “She’s sort of learning what the administration knew and when they knew it, and she’s just sort of quizzical about the whole thing. She can’t quite sort out how this all played out the way that it did.” On the long list of people, agencies, and international forces Hillary blamed for her loss, Obama had a spot.

Elsewhere, however, Allen and Parnes provide polling numbers and other raw data that pinpoint the precise reason why Clinton lost — hint: it’s not Russia — men and working class Democrats in Pennsylvania turning to Trump, and how he simply outperformed her with white voters in battleground Florida:

Exit polls in Pennsylvania showed that Clinton and Obama won women by thirteen-point margins in 2016 and 2012, respectively. But in a state that has never elected a woman governor or US senator, men favored Trump by seventeen points— a massive increase over Mitt Romney’s three-point edge in 2012. From a geographical perspective, Hillary did better than Obama in Philadelphia and its surrounding suburban counties but lost working-class Democratic strongholds in Erie and Luzerne Counties that Obama had carried.

In Florida, Trump crushed Hillary in the suburban swing areas outside Tampa and St. Petersburg. As he did nationally, Trump did better with white Floridians than Romney had, doubling up Clinton at 64 percent to 32 percent. Romney had beaten Obama 61 percent to 37 percent among Florida whites.

Clinton also lost the reliably-Democratic state of Wisconsin, where she had “had been blown out by Bernie Sanders in the Wisconsin primary” and failed to campaign for months after her party’s national convention:

Turnout in Milwaukee, the key vote center for Democrats in Wisconsin, was off by sixty thousand or so votes from 2012, and nearly three dozen counties in the state saw the partisan margin from that year flip by 20 percentage points or more in 2016. Trump won 52 percent to 41 percent in Brown County, home of Green Bay, site of the visit that Hillary and Obama canceled after the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. Obama had won the county by nine points in 2008 and lost it by two points in 2012. Hillary, who had been blown out by Bernie Sanders in the Wisconsin primary, never set foot in the state.

Lastly, Shattered examines how Trump turned Michigan — a state that had been blue since 1992 — into a red state:

About a dozen counties in Michigan flipped from Obama to Trump, but one mattered most. Macomb County, flush with working- and middle-class whites, gave Trump more than his statewide margin of victory. Obama won the county by 16,103 votes in 2012; Trump took it by 48,348 votes, or about four times his statewide margin.

I think the American Constitution is the ultimate document ever writ.

Quote:US presidents typically avoid weighing in on specific candidates running in overseas election. But Mr Trump suggested his opinion was no different from an average observer, saying: "Everybody is making predictions on who is going to win. I'm no different than you."

Marine Le Pen gets poll boost after Paris attack as Donald Trump says her chances of victory have improved


21 APRIL 2017 • 8:29PM
Donald Trump has said the Paris terrorist attack would boost Marine Le Pen's presidential chances after a last-minute poll gave her a modest increase in support.
The US president said the shooting would "probably help" Ms Le Pen in Sunday's election, because she is "strongest on borders, and she's the strongest on what's been going on in France."
"Whoever is the toughest on radical Islamic terrorism, and whoever is the toughest at the borders, will do well in the election," he said.

Quote:Iconic author and cultural critic Camille Paglia predicts President Donald Trump is headed toward winning re-election in 2020, thanks to a Democratic Party in disarray and American mistrust of partisan elite New York media.

Paglia’s remarks came during a “Times Talks” discussion moderated by New York Times columnist Frank Bruni. Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen joined Paglia in a discussion about “the Donald Trump era.”

Paglia scolded the Democratic Party for failing to do the “soul searching” required after losing an election.

“It is incumbent upon the defeated party to pull itself together, or else we’re going to get the reelection of the present administration,” she said, adding that Trump is heading for election because “the Democrats have overplayed their hand.”

“What the Democrats needed to do, and the major media, Frank, needed to do was to do some soul-searching,” she added.

The Bernie Sanders supporter, who voted for Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein, slammed the New York Times both for getting the election so fantastically wrong and misleading their readers: “The New York media was in an absolute bubble about this.”

“If you read only the New York Times — I said, ‘Oh my God!’ The readers of the New York Times are heading for a major, major breakdown shock if Trump is in fact elected.'”

“Let’s not get started on the strategic errors of the Hillary campaign,” Paglia added

Quote:FBI Director James Comey reportedly did not trust former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other senior officials at the Justice Department, speculating they might provide Hillary Clinton some political cover over her email scandal during the presidential election.

Comey’s so-called “go-it-alone strategy” in the Clinton investigation emerged from suspicions that Lynch and other Justice Department officials might look to down play the email probe, The New York Times reported Saturday.

Comey’s suspicions may have been confirmed in a 2015 meeting when Lynch reportedly told him to use the word “matter” instead of “investigation” when publicly discussing the probe. According to the Times, Lynch said that using the world “investigation” would raise other questions and argued that the department should maintain its policy of not confirming whether an investigation was ongoing.

Lynch was called to recuse herself from the Clinton email investigation after she had a private discussion with former President Bill Clinton in an airplane on the tarmac of Phoenix’s airport in June 16. Lynch did not recuse herself, but was forced to say she would accept the any conclusions reached by federal authorities.

Tensions boiled over after new emails were found through a separate investigation into former New York congressman Anthony Weiner, who was married to top Clinton confidant Huma Abedin.

Comey wanted to alert Congress about what it found on the laptop and feared that if he did not notify lawmakers, it would look like the FBI was withholding information before the election.

Lynch did not want Comey to send the letter to Congress about the findings, but decided against ordering him not to send it, according

Comey Tried to
Shield the F.B.I. From
Politics. Then He
Shaped an Election.

As the F.B.I. investigated Hillary Clinton and the Trump
campaign, James B. Comey tried to keep the bureau out
of politics but plunged it into the center of a bitter election.


Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision.

Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed he was obligated to tell Congress that had changed.

“Should you consider what you’re about to do may help elect Donald Trump president?” an adviser asked him, Mr. Comey recalled recently at a closed meeting with F.B.I. agents.

He could not let politics affect his decision, he replied. “If we ever start considering who might be affected, and in what way, by what we do, we’re done,” he told the agents.

American Commitment’s Phil Kerpen tells Breitbart News that we need to take back the internet from the tech-socialists:

Net Neutrality is simply the spawn of the tech-socialists, the liberals that want to control the freedom of the internet. Ultraliberal advocacy groups were fueled by $196 million from the Soros and Ford Foundations. Silicon Valley giants like Google sent 250 personnel through the Obama administration and saw regulating ISPs (internet service providers) as a way to guarantee themselves access to below-market rates for bandwidth to benefit their subsidiaries such as YouTube.

They achieved this goal by reclassifying internet service providers such as Comcast or Verizon as public monopolies using a Depression-era law designed to regulate the old AT&T Ma Bell telephone monopoly. Obama And the tech-socialists Stole the Internet From the People. Now We Must Take It Back.

Phil Kerpen wrote in an op-ed Thursday:

For over a decade, professional liberal organizers and agitators – backed by a tidal wave of big liberal foundations and Silicon Valley corporate money – have told a bizarre scare story that without heavy-handed government regulation, Internet service providers (ISPs) will start blocking what websites you can go to and impede free speech on the Internet. 

No such thing happened in the approximately two decades that ISPs were unregulated ‘information services’ under the 1996 Telecom Act. Indeed the opposite occurred as robust competition between phone and cable companies – and later wireless companies – drove speeds dramatically higher and consumers benefited from an Internet that innovated beyond our wildest dreams.
Kerpen elaborated on the liberal end goals for Net Neutrality:

Robert McChesney, the founder of Free Press, was cited 46 times in the Obama Net Neutrality order. He even openly bragged, ‘At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies. We are not at that point yet. But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.

Robert McChesney even said that “In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.”

Kerpen explained that everything changed when Trump was elected. “But you see that all changed when Donald Trump was elected President and nominated Ajit Pai as chairman of the FCC,” he noted. “They are already eliminating onerous regulations at the FCC, and now they can get rid of Net Neutrality.”

The American Commitment president explained that the liberal media has been lying to Americans about the benefits of Net Neutrality. “See the problem is that Ars Technica, The Verge, Wired, all these liberal tech websites 100% lied to you on Net Neutrality. The internet prospered under light regulation when there was no Net Neutrality.”

He continued, “The liberal media will also lie and smear Chairman Pai and President Trump to force Congress’s hand and keep Net Neutrality. Republicans need to do what they were elected to do: stand and fight. And win.”

How Trump Succeeds Without Succeeding

[Image: ?]
He has made a career of convincing people that his failures were the exact opposite. Can he pull it off again?
By Michael Kruse
April 23, 2017

Earlier this month, 11 weeks after his inauguration, in the aftermath of bungled attempts at instituting a Muslim travel ban and “repealing and replacing” the Affordable Care Act, and in the midst of sinking approval ratings, steady reports of Russian influence on the outcome of last fall’s election, staff strife in the White House and growing inner-circle alarm that the first 100 days of his administration would be seen as a failure, President Trump sauntered to the rear of Air Force One to make sure the reporters traveling with him had the story straight. “I think,” he told them, “we’ve had one of the most successful 13 weeks in the history of the presidency.”
The following week, in an interview with Fox Business, he doubled down. “I don’t think that there is a presidential period of time in the first 100 days where anyone’s done nearly what we’ve been able to do,” he said.

And last Tuesday, in a speech in Wisconsin, Trump held firm: “No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days.”
Critics have expressed amazement at this self-assessment. How, wonder people who are even fleetingly familiar with presidential history, can Trump look back at the past three months and seriously say they were the best ever?
To others, though, who have worked with him, have been watching him for decades and know him well, nothing could be more familiar. “I just shake my head,” former Trump casino executive Jack O’Donnell told me the other day, “and I say, ‘Well, that’s Donald Trump.’”
These three statements, 53 words in all, are potent shots of unadulterated, time-tested Trump—short, confident declarations of success, in spite of objective evidence of failure, uttered with total disregard for the parsing and fact-checking that constitutes so much of the coverage of him and his administration. Biographers, ex-employees, veteran New York City gossip columnists, public relations professionals and political operatives from both major parties say recognizing this well-established pattern of behavior—stumble, proclaim victory, move on—is imperative to understanding Trump.
He flopped as an owner of a professional football team, effectively killing not only his own franchise but the league as a whole. He blew up his first marriage, married his mistress, and then divorced her, too. He bankrupted his casinos five times over the course of nearly 20 years. His eponymous airline existed for less than three years and ended up almost a quarter of a billion dollars in debt. And he has slapped his surname on a practically never-ending sequence of duds and scams (Trump Ice bottled water, Trump Vodka, Trump Steaks, Trump magazine, Trump Mortgage, Trump University—for which he settled a class-action fraud lawsuit earlier this year for $25 million). Other risk-taking businessmen might periodically cop to falling short while pivoting to what’s next. Not Trump. He has dealt with his roster of losses largely by refusing to acknowledge them as anything other than wins.
More than a belief in the power of positive thinking or the casual audacity of a tireless salesman, Trump has perfected a narrative style in which he doesn’t merely obscure reality—he tries to change it with pronouncements that act like blaring, garish roadside billboards. Unrelenting in telling his own story, he has defined himself as a success no matter what—by talking the loudest and the longest, and by insisting on having the first word and also the last. And it’s worked. Again and again, throughout his adult life, Trump in essence has managed to succeed without actually succeeding.
This, not his much-crowed-about deal-making prowess, is Trump’s most singular skill, I’ve heard in more than a dozen recent interviews.
“He’s not successful at what he claims to be successful at,” said Tim O’Brien, the author of TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald. “He is, however, arguably the most successful self-promoter in United States business and political history. And that’s a form of success.”
“He knows of no other way,” former New York Daily News scribe George Rush said, “and that is to spin until he’s woven some gossamer fabric out of”—he searched for the right word—“garbage.”
Even his admirers, who dispute the notion that Trump has not accomplished important things in this first stage of his first term, grant that his ultimate success will depend in no small measure on his ability to convince people that he has succeeded. “I think by the power of persuasion he’s going to end up getting things done,” said Sam Nunberg, a political adviser early in his campaign who credits Trump with the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and a flurry of executive orders that have undone or loosened Barack Obama-implemented policies and regulations. “He certainly could sell ice to an Eskimo—and I mean that as a compliment. He’s the spinner of all spinners.”
And he’s only upped the ante over the past month.
“I don’t lose,” he told the Financial Times.
“It’s been very much misreported that we failed with health care,” he said in the Fox Business interview. “We haven’t failed. We’re negotiating …”
“We will be stronger and bigger and better as a nation than ever before,” he assured parents and their children by way of introducing them to the White House for the Easter Egg Roll. “We’re right on track. You see what’s happening.”
But what’s happening, many think, is that he’s failing, and that his transparent strategy to distract from his manifest lack of preparation is being exposed on this blinding-bright, highest-stakes stage. This is, after all, the hardest job Trump has ever had, and even he occasionally has alluded to that. “Nobody knew that health care could be so complicated,” he memorably said back in February as his reform efforts floundered.
In one significant way, though, Trump’s never had it easier. Attention is his oxygen, and always has been, and for most of his professional existence, especially before the hit debut of The Apprentice in 2004, he had to work for it. Now he doesn’t. He’s the president, which he views (not wrongly) as a kind of proof in and of itself of success. “I can’t be doing so badly,” he explained to a reporter from Time, “because I’m president, and you’re not.” And when he asserts his versions of reality, they come, unlike in the past, with an immense governmental apparatus to back them up and the inherent authority of the office he inhabits. Trump no longer can be ignored. He has to be listened to.
“He creates his own reality,” said Barbara Res, a Trump Organization vice president in the 1980s and ’90s. “He created the reality that he was this big, successful businessman, and now he’s creating the reality that he’s a big, accomplished president.”
“He’s gotten away with this game his whole life,” Florida-based Republican strategist Rick Wilson said.
It worked for him as a businessman, and it worked for him as a presidential candidate—and if it doesn’t work for him in the long run as president as well, it will be a first.
Trump has been preparing for this for a long time.
In 1983, in a bid to grow his fame, he bought the New Jersey Generals of the second-tier United States Football League. In three years, he plunged $22 million into the endeavor. Angling for a giant payday or a spot in the National Football League, he spearheaded with Roy Cohn an antitrust lawsuit against the NFL. It was defeated in court. The suit sought $1.69 billion. A jury awarded $3.76. The embarrassing outcome led directly to the demise of the USFL.
“We’re dead,” said the vice president of the team from Memphis, Tennessee.
“We lost,” said a spokesman for the team from Jacksonville, Florida.
No, Trump said. “We expect to win a total victory.”
A judge in an appeals court upheld the initial ruling and pinned blame on Trump. At one point, in what he wrote, he likened decisions made by the owner of the Generals and USFL officials to “suicide.”
Trump was undaunted. In 1990, when $3 billion of debt racked up in a willy-nilly late-’80s spending spree and through over-leveraged Atlantic City casinos caused a financial calamity that coincided with the high-profile implosion of his marriage to the mother of his first three children, he scoffed that any of it would be a setback. The coverage of his divorce, his affair and the negotiations surrounding his prenuptial agreement were making his name “hotter than ever,” he told a reporter from New York.
“The business has never been better,” he said to the Associated Press.
Everything was “running flawlessly,” he added in a story in the New York Times, which appeared under a headline that read, “An Empire at Risk … Debt Forcing Trump to Play for Higher Stakes.”
The Trump Taj Mahal casino filed for bankruptcy in 1991.
The Trump Castle and the Trump Plaza casinos filed for bankruptcy in 1992.
“I’m doing great,” he told the Times in 1993.
And he was right in that it could have been worse. Trump ended up not ever having to file for personal bankruptcy and escaping from his “blip,” as he would come to call his not-quite-Waterloo of the ’90s, because of family money and because the banks had lent him such staggering sums he was effectively too big to fail. The banks let him defer payments and put him on an allowance—of $450,000 a month. Trump then completed his comeback partly by going public with his casinos and shifting restructured debt to shareholders who would rue placing their trust in Trump. Nobody made much money off Trump in Atlantic City other than Trump himself.
“I’m intelligent,” he told a reporter from Fortune in 2000. “Some people would say I’m very, very, very intelligent.”
In 2004, after not quite a decade in which Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts failed to turn an annual profit, not even once, the company filed again for bankruptcy. Shares that had traded at more than $35 in 1996 now were at less than 50 cents. His casinos were $1.8 billion in debt. The business was in shambles. “The business has been great,” Trump told a reporter from the Washington Post.
By this time, these predictable go-to tactics were bolstered by the success of his new reality show, making NBC all but an official PR partner. The network was portraying Trump to tens of millions of viewers in precisely the way he always had wanted to be seen—as one of the country’s premier managers, executives and entrepreneurs. But Trump, as ever, remained his own best, most committed publicist. Bankruptcy, he argued to the AP, is not a bad thing: “I don’t think it’s a failure. It’s a success.”
“You are what you think you are,” he wrote in his book called Think Big in 2007. “Oftentimes,” he added, “perception is more important than fact.”
Trump’s casino company filed for bankruptcy again in 2009.
“I never went bankrupt,” he said on ABC in 2011.
“I’ve done an incredible job,” he told The Atlantic in 2013.
And in 2015, of course, he announced he was running for president. “They all said, a lot of the pundits on television, ‘Well, Donald will never run, and one of the main reasons is he’s private and he’s probably not as successful as everybody thinks,’” he said in his speech at Trump Tower. “So I said to myself, you know, nobody’s ever going to know unless I run, because I’m really proud of my success. I really am.”
Can this work? Can Trump succeed even if he doesn’t succeed when he’s not the president of the Trump Organization but the president of the United States of America? In my conversations of late with people who have worked with him, studied him and know him well, opinions varied. Some said sure. Others said maybe. But nobody said no chance.
“Yes,” Trump biographer Gwenda Blair said matter-of-factly when I asked her the question. She’s seen it work too much for too long to dismiss the possibility.
“I can’t think of anything he hasn’t been able to spin into some kind of success,” said Res, the former Trump Organization vice president. “I’ve always said he must have sold his soul to the devil. Because he wins all the time. He always wins. He seems to get away with everything.”
Being the president is, though, so different from anything he’s ever done, many of the people I spoke with maintained, in terms of difficulty, scrutiny and accountability. The rules are different in this arena—or have been.
“Clearly you can campaign, and win, by being P.T. Barnum,” O’Brien said. “That’s because elections have become celebrity contests. But I think governing is different than campaigning.
“And I think the 100 days benchmark does matter for him,” he continued, “because he promised swift action: ‘I will come to the slow-moving, ossified bureaucracy that is Washington, D.C., and—presto—I will make it move quickly.’ Lo and behold, his 100 days have come and passed with no significant legislation. … I don’t know that he can get away with abracadabra for four years.”
“It’s true he has often been able to turn failure into success, or at least claim success,” longtime Democratic strategist Bob Shrum told me. But he stressed that the presidency is not the same: If Trump fails, Shrum said, “it will not be like the collapse of an apartment development in Puerto Vallarta. It’s not 200 people who lose their apartment deposits—it’s 24 million people who lose their health care. It’s not 500 people who lose their casino jobs—it’s millions of people who have been left behind and thought he was going to fix things for them.”
“We’re not even close to how bad it’s going to get,” said Wilson, the GOP strategist from Florida who’s been a vociferous Trump critic. “It’s going to get substantially more difficult to keep selling this crap. He’s not dealing with some random vendors in New Jersey. He’s dealing with the American people. But I will say this: His cult has shown a great willingness to be a cult.”
The degree of difficulty is higher, and so, without a doubt, are the stakes—but Trump has not altered his fundamental approach. He is doing what he’s done best. This is why people are starting to focus on his track record as a seller of success at least as much as an achiever of it. And if anybody can pull this off, if any person can get re-elected as president if the rest of these four years go something like the past three months, say Wilson and many others, it is him.
“It’s the unwillingness to lose,” said Nunberg, the former Trump political adviser. “I would be surprised if he doesn’t end up being very successful.”
In the political sphere specifically, said Tim Miller, who was the communications director for Jeb Bush’s 2016 campaign, “this has been tested at this point for two years, right?” And the upshot is clear: “His voters aren’t going to abandon him in the face of failure, as defined by the political elite, the media and pundits.”
PR professionals, too, seem skeptical that his failure in office necessarily would result in his failure at the ballot box come November 2020. They have been watching him work for decades with a mixture of horror and awe.
“The great lesson of Trump’s career is that what goes around does NOT come around, not even a little,” Eric Dezenhall, the CEO of Dezenhall Resources in Washington and one of the country’s experts in crisis and damage control, wrote to me in an email. “It is wrong to hold him to the same standard as other presidents. The pundit consensus is that if he fails to deliver on jobs and key legislation that he will be punished for it. Wrong. His main mission is to vex the political and media elite, period. It’s essentially a mandate to entertain. If he does that, most of his supporters—and the people who will never admit they are his supporters—will be satisfied for quite some time. If he fails to deliver in other areas, well, that’s the fault of the deep state or some other villain. There is always the possibility that his run at the tables will end at his presidency, but I’m not so sure.”
The question of whether Trump can use his usual M.O. to similar effect in this new, infinitely more important role raises a basic question: Success as defined by whom? Because the truth is there is nothing absolute or agreed upon here. Assessments of presidents aren’t unilateral or fixed. They shift over time, depending on who’s writing them, when and why. And the group that traditionally has the first crack at it, the people who have penned the initial reviews for many of Trump’s 44 predecessors—the press—Trump has spent most of the past two years trying to delegitimize. And with a significant portion of the electorate, it has worked. He’s never waited for others to write his own history, and he’s not waiting now. After saying in his announcement speech two Junes ago that he would “do various things very quickly,” like “repeal and replace the big lie, Obamacare”—“mark my words,” he said—Trump this week denounced on Twitter “the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days.” It “doesn’t matter,” he told reporters.
Eventually, of course, there will be a longer list of campaign pledges kept or not kept, and more and more actual numbers, hard statistics, showing his success or failure on health care and crime and infrastructure improvements and tax reform and wages and jobs and on and on—all of which voters can use to gauge his performance. But will they? And which voters? Because this, too, is part of Trump’s unwavering conviction in his ability to control the narrative.
“I inherited a mess with jobs, despite the statistics, you know, my statistics are even better, but they are not the real statistics because you have millions of people that can’t get a job, OK,” he said in his recent interview with Time, appearing to reference the sustained job growth the country experienced under Obama while simultaneously using this bewildering, punctuation-free sequence of words to shift blame and cloud facts.
His most zealous fans, a base that has polled consistently somewhere south of 40 percent, will believe him, and in him, forever, argued many of the people I talked to. So how many independents and moderates or on-and-off, in-and-out voters, then, can he keep convincing? How many of the people in places like Ohio and Pennsylvania and Michigan and Wisconsin, the people who in the most purely mathematical sense made him the president—how many of them will get the jobs he promised throughout the campaign? Will their lives get measurably better? Will it matter? It’s impossible at this point to say for sure.
Past presidents, including some seen as the best presidents, have conceded failure and expressed contrition when that’s what was called for. “The power of the presidency is often thought to reside within this Oval Office, yet it doesn’t rest here. It rests in you, the American people, and in your trust,” Ronald Reagan said in his 1987 apology for his role in the Iran-Contra affair. “Your trust is what gives a president his powers of leadership.” Watch what Reagan said that night and try to imagine Trump doing the same. Almost everybody I talked to agreed: He will never fail and say so. He is absolutely and unquestionably going to try to do what he’s always done. It’s what’s gotten him here, say the people who know him the best.
O’Donnell, the head-shaking former casino executive, recalled the week in April 1990 in Atlantic City when Trump’s Taj Mahal rushed to open to create cash flow to start servicing the suffocating debt Trump had taken on to make the $1.1-billion project happen. The staff was unprepared and overwhelmed. Machines malfunctioned. Customers fumed. “This is a lot of baloney!” shouted one woman. “We came all the way from East Orange.”
“It was just a disaster,” O’Donnell said. “A monumental failure.”
Trump’s prized casino, which he had billed as “the Eighth Wonder of the World,” would be open for barely more than a year before filing for bankruptcy.
Trump, though, went on CNN in that summer of 1990 and told Larry King it was “doing great” and described it as “a tremendous success.” He explained that the chaotic launch only looked like a failure because it was actually exactly the opposite. So many people were gambling so much money, he insisted, the machines simply couldn’t handle the demand. “They blew apart,” Trump said to King. “They were virtually on fire.”
O’Donnell remembers watching the interview aghast.
“If you or I were sitting there,” he told me, “we would have trouble staring into the camera and lying. He doesn’t.”

When Nigel Farage met Julian Assange

Why did Ukip’s ex-leader want to slip in unnoticed to meet the WikiLeaks chief at the Ecuadorian embassy?

Nigel Farage: a decisive impact. Photograph: Christopher Furlong/Getty Images

Carole Cadwalladr  Sunday 23 April 2017 02.00 EDT

On 9 March 2017, an ordinary Thursday morning, Ian Stubbings, a 35-year-old Londoner, was walking down the street near his office in South Kensington when he spotted a familiar face. He turned and saw a man entering the redbrick terrace which houses the Ecuadorian embassy, where the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been holed up since 2012. And the familiar face? It was Nigel Farage, the man who spearheaded Britain’s exit from the European Union.
“I thought ‘hang on a moment’,” Stubbings says. “‘That looks a bit dodgy.’ I knew the building was the embassy because I often see camera crews outside. But there was no one else around. I was the only person who’d seen him. And I didn’t know what the significance was – and I still don’t actually – but I thought: that’s got to be worth telling and I was the only person who’d witnessed it.”
So, at 11.22am, he tweeted it. His handle is @custardgannet and he wrote: “Genuine scoop: just saw Nigel Farage enter the Ecuadorian embassy.” Moments later, a reporter from BuzzFeed, who happened to follow him on Twitter, picked it up and tweeted him back, and Stubbings told her: “No press or cameras around.”

No press or cameras around, that is, until BuzzFeed turned up just in time to catch Farage leaving, 40 minutes later. “Nigel Farage Just Visited the Ecuadorian Embassy in London,” the headline said. “Asked by BuzzFeed News if he’d been visiting Julian Assange, the former Ukip leader said he could not remember what he had been doing in the building.”
And that was how the world found out, by accident, that the founder of WikiLeaks, the organisation which published Hillary Clinton’s leaked emails – a decisive advantage for Donald Trump’s campaign – and Farage, a friend of Donald Trump, were mutually acquainted.
In Britain, we routinely treat Farage as if he were Widow Twankey in the national pantomime that is Ukip politics. And Widow Twankey dropping by on the man who lives in the Ecuadorian embassy’s broom cupboard seemed just one more weird moment in the weird times in which we now live; six weeks on, it had faded into yet another episode in the surreality show that now passes for normality.
But in a week that saw two major developments on both sides of the Atlantic regarding the respective roles that Assange and Farage played in the US election and the EU referendum – the same week in which a UK general election was announced – it is an attitude that needs urgent re-examination.
For if you were to pick three individuals who had the most decisive impact on that most decisive of years, 2016, it would be hard to see beyond Trump, Assange and Farage. What was not known until Ian Stubbings decided to go for an early lunch is that there is a channel of communication between them.
Last week brought this more clearly into focus. Because in a shock development last Thursday, the US justice department announced it had prepared charges with a view to arresting Assange. A day later, the Electoral Commission announced it was investigating Leave.EU – the Brexit campaign Farage headed.
Significantly, the commission said its investigation was “focused on whether one or more donations – including of services – accepted by Leave.EU was impermissible”.
One of the grounds on which a donation can be deemed “impermissible” is that it comes from abroad. A fundamental principle of British democracy and our electoral laws is that foreign citizens and foreign companies cannot buy influence in British elections via campaign donations.

Robert Mercer, the billionaire hedge fund owner, bankrolled the Trump campaign and his company, Cambridge Analytica, the Observer has revealed, donated services to Leave.EU. If this issue forms part of the Electoral Commission investigation, this isn’t just a case of possibly breaking rules by overspending a few pounds. It goes to the heart of the integrity of our democratic system. Did Leave.EU seek to obtain foreign support for a British election? And, if so, does this constitute “foreign subversion”?
What did or didn’t happen on 9 March may perhaps reveal clues to understanding this. To unravelling the links between WikiLeaks, the UK and the Trump administration – an administration embroiled in ever deeper connections to the Russian state. Between Trump – whose campaign was funded by Mercer and who came to power with the help of the same analytics firm now under investigation for its work with Leave.EU – and Brexit.
And 9 March was the day that all these worlds came together – when the cyber-libertarian movement that Assange represents collided headfirst with the global rightwing libertarian movement that Farage represents. When Nigel Farage tripped down the steps of the Ecuadorian embassy – a visit that he did not expect to be photographed or documented – a beam of light was shone on a previously hidden world: a political alignment between WikiLeaks’ ideology, Ukip’s ideology and Trump’s ideology that is not necessarily just an affinity. It is also, potentially, a channel of communication.
David Golumbia, an associate professor at Virginia Commonwealth University in the US who has studied WikiLeaks, describes it as “the moment when the lines suddenly become visible”. He says: “It was like the picture suddenly came into focus. There is this worldwide, rightwing, nationalistic movement that is counter to the EU, and this is present in the US and Europe and Russia, and we are just starting to understand how they do all seem to be in communication and co-ordination with each other.”
In many ways, it wasn’t a surprise. There are clear ideological similarities between Assange and Farage. They have both been regulars on RT, Russia’s state-sponsored news channel. They have both been paid – indirectly by the Russian state – to appear on it. Ben Nimmo, a defence analyst with the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, points out that Farage has voted systematically in favour of Russian interests in the European parliament. “There is very, very strong support for the Kremlin among the far right in Europe. And Farage is squarely in that bloc with the likes of the Front National in France and Jobbik in Hungary.”
In February, when I started my investigation into Leave.EU and Cambridge Analytica, I met Andy Wigmore, its director of communications, for a coffee and he told me that Farage was in the US, where he was going to be making a big platform speech at CPAC, the US conservative conference. “And it’s not going to be his normal ‘Mr Brexit’ speech,” he said. “He’s going to be talking about the need for closer relations with Russia.” Really? I said. That sounds odd.

“What? No way. Farage has been across the subject for years in the European parliament.” It didn’t make much sense at the time – and, in fact, that wasn’t the speech that Farage made. On 24 February, he told the crowd: “Our real friends in the world speak English.” The next evening he had dinner with Trump at the Washington Trump hotel and tweeted a photo of him with “the Donald” in the early hours of the morning.
Eleven days later, he headed off to the Ecuadorian embassy. BuzzFeed’s story dropped at 1.31pm. And, 57 minutes later, at 2.28pm, WikiLeaks made an announcement: it would host a live press conference by Julian Assange about his latest leak, “Vault 7”.
The timing of this was lost in the “isn’t that bizarre?” tone of the coverage. And, maybe, also, it’s only with distance that it raises significant questions – not least because the complex web of connections between the Trump administration is a challenge for even hardened US newshounds to follow.
Nearly every day of 2017 has brought forth some new nugget of fact about “Trump-Russia” but this was a tough week for Trump, even by his standards. The “witch-hunt”, as he’s termed it, was gathering pace. On 2 March, his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, recused himself from the Trump-Russia investigation and, on 4 March, Trump retaliated in a tweetstorm which accused Obama of “wiretapping” him.
And then, on 7 March, he finally caught a break. Some other news came along to knock him off the front page. For more than a month, WikiLeaks had been periodically issuing cryptic tweets about Vault 7. A month passed before it finally landed: a leak that, whether by accident or design, embarrassed the CIA.
WikiLeaks’ data trove had come from what it called “the CIA’s global hacking force”, its Center for Cyber Intelligence. “CIA scrambles to contain damage from WikiLeaks documents,” said the headline in what Trump calls the “failing New York Times”. The documents apparently showed that the CIA had the capability to hack a huge number of devices, not just phones but also TVs. In the midst of the most serious investigation of foreign cyber-interference in a current administration in US history, vivid revelations about the US’s similar capacity to interfere abroad had hit the headlines.


A highly placed contact with links to US intelligence told the Observer: “When the heat is turned up and all electronic communication, you have to assume, is being intensely monitored, then those are the times when intelligence communication falls back on human couriers. Where you have individuals passing information in ways and places that cannot be monitored.”
When asked about the meeting in the embassy, Farage said: “I never discuss where I go or who I see.”
In October, Roger Stone, a Republican strategist whose links to Russia are currently under investigation by the FBI, told a local CBS reporter about “a back-channel communication with Assange, because we have a good mutual friend … that friend travels back and forth from the United States to London and we talk”. Asked directly by the Observer if Nigel Farage was that friend, his spokesman said: “Definitely not.”

And in some ways, this may not be the point. A channel exists. In the perfect storm of fake news, disinformation and social media in which we now live, WikiLeaks is, in many ways, the swirling vortex at the centre of everything. Farage’s relationship with the organisation is just one of a whole host of questions to which we currently have no answer.
Some of those questions dog Arron Banks, the Bristol businessman who bankrolled Leave.EU and who announced last week that he is standing for election in Clacton. When I interviewed him last month, he said: “Not a single penny of Russian money has been put into Brexit” – though that wasn’t a question I had asked him.
He is, however, openly pro-Putin and anti-democracy. “It’s not possible to run that entire country [Russia] as a pure democracy,” he said. When asked about the investigation into Leave.EU’s campaign finances, he told me: “I don’t give a monkey’s about the Electoral Commission.”

On Friday night, he released a letter saying that he would no longer co-operate with the commission – a body mandated by parliament to uphold UK electoral law – and said he would “see them in court”.
As Britain hurtles towards a general election to choose a government that will take us out of the European Union, this may be the moment to realise that Nigel Farage is not Widow Twankey, and that this is not a pantomime. Farage’s politics and his relationships are more complicated than we, the British press, have previously realised. His relationship to Mercer and Cambridge Analytica, the same firm that helped Trump to power, is now under official investigation. Every day, more and more questions are being asked about that administration.
Yet, here in Britain, we plunge blindly on. Real, hard questions need to asked about what exactly these relationships are and what they mean. Don’t they?

Operation Gotham Shield: U.S. Gov’t To “Simulate Nuke Blast Over Manhattan”

By Ian Greenhalgh on April 24, 2017

[Image: 15-Mt-on-Manhattan-500x422.jpg]

[Editor’s note: This ‘tabletop exercise’ to plan the response to a nuclear attack on NYC is quite disturbing when one remembers that the US is currently beating the drums of war after allowing relations with nuclear armed North Korea and Russia to fall to all-time lows. Then there is the prospect of a terrorist attack using a nuke, perhaps a ‘dirty bomb’. 
We must also recall that most false flag attacks, including 9-11, were drills that went live – they were pre-planned as a fake event designed to test emergency response but ended up being real events. This fact raises the disturbing notion that a nuclear event is being planned for NYC and doubtless, it would be blamed on someone other than the perpetrators – the finger of blame might be pointed at ISIS in order to justify a US return to war in the Middle East, or perhaps it would point at North Korea to justify Trump’s ‘Armada’ launching a strike on that nation. 
Of course, it is likely that this is nothing more than a simple training exercise, but we think it is always sensible to take note of these events just in case they later become part of some nefarious false flag event. Ian]
Operation Gotham Shield: U.S. Gov’t To “Simulate Nuke Blast Over Manhattan” As Actual War Nears
False flag watch is now active.
A general alert is out for something major in the near or immediate future. Hopefully, it is just another false alarm, instead of another false flag. Either way, danger is at hand.
Given all that is going on in the world, it is downright eerie to discover that the federal government is once again staging mock disasters that draw disturbing parallels with current world events.
In just a few days, during April 24-26th, Operation Gotham Shield will commence.
It is a tabletop, joint agency exercise involving FEMA, Homeland Security and a myriad of law enforcement and military agencies. WMD, chemical and biological units will all be on hand as a response is tested for a “simulated” nuclear detonation over the United States’ foremost urban center, in the iconic and densely populated island of Manhattan and nearby shores of New Jersey.
The potential for a more explosive false flag to spin out of control, by hijacking and ‘converting’ the simulated actions, is all too real.
This is closely related to the mechanism that many researchers believe was at work on the day of 9/11, nesting a false flag attack inside of a series of large-scale training operations which invoked emergency powers and simulated attacks in locations that were actually hit.
According to the Voice of Reason:
On April 18th thru May 5th, 2017, state, local, and federal organizations alike are planning for Operation Gotham Shield 2017 — a major nuclear detonation drill in the New York-New Jersey area, along with the U.S.-Canadian border. During this exercise, 4 nuclear devices, 2 of which are rendered “safe” during the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Vital Archer Exercise, and one successful 10kt detonation in the NYC/NJ area, along with one smaller detonation on the U.S./Canadian border are to take place.
Among the organizations involved are:
– U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
– U.S. Department of Defense (DOD)
– U.S. Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO)
– U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
– U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
– U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM)
– State of New Jersey Office of Emergency Management
– State of New York Office of Emergency Management
– City of New York Office of Emergency Management
The following document comes from The Nevada National Security Service. Their primary role with the government is to help ensure the security of the United States and its allies by supporting the stewardship of the nuclear deterrent, providing emergency response capability and training, and contributing to key nonproliferation and arms control initiatives.
Will anything catastrophic happen during or after that window of time? Will North Korea really attack the U.S. mainland? Will someone else do so, and blame their overseas enemies?
No one who knows the answers to these questions is willing to talk. For now, all we can do is watch, wait and listen.
Don’t jump to fear and speculation, but don’t lie down or look away either.
These will be trying times.

Trump Transition Team Contacted personally by Lee Wanta (Part II)

By Preston James, Ph.D on February 1, 2017

Lee Wanta's secret plan for an American Canal is now being revealed publicly

[Image: Wanta-1-e1420338979686.jpg]

In Part I, it was disclosed that Lee Wanta has personally contacted the Trump Transition team and informed them of his well-engineered plan to construct a state-of-the-art high speed Maglev railroad across the USA, paid for from his funds held at Argo Trust.
The Transition Team is now aware that Wanta is ready to begin construction as soon as the Trump Administration flexes its muscle to provide access to his funds now frozen in Argo Trust run by Trustees Hayden, Bush and Cheney (without Wanta’s permission).
But there is even more to this story.
Not only did Wanta inform the Trump Transition Team of his well-engineered plan for this much needed Maglev Railroad, which would provide an immediate 2 million good-paying job opportunities, he also informed them of a previously secret plan to build an “American Canal” connecting the Gulf through to the Pacific Ocean.
This canal would follow the border of the USA with Mexico and would remove the need for an expensive wall. Instead, bridges would be constructed at several key points for approved crossing and customs inspection.
When Lee Wanta first started working on this, several Admirals thought that this was a great idea and would enhance the US Navy’s strategic ability to respond much faster by being able to move carriers, ships, and high speed patrol boats between the two coasts easily and in a short period of time.
According to Wanta’s unique plan, the Army Corps of Engineers would be responsible for all the specific engineering and designs. They already have vast experience managing the US Rivers and ports, keeping them dredged, and can easily handle the job.

[Image: canal-feature-640x427.jpg]

Inexpensive fencing with electronic sensors and state of the art surveillance systems would follow the canal, and the water itself would prevent the use of any tunnels from Mexico across the border into the USA for drug trafficking.
If you think that cost would be prohibitive, guess again. According to Wanta, his vast holdings, now illegally frozen in Argo Trust without his permission, would more than pay for the construction, and this would eliminate the need for a large, expensive wall between the USA and Mexico.
The truly remarkable thing about Lee Wanta that anyone who knows him personally will tell you is that he is a very caring man, a true patriot, who promised President Reagan he would use his huge gains for the benefit of advancing the USA. Lee Wanta has never wavered in this commitment which has become his life goal, to do what he promised President Reagan.
Over many years, Wanta endured many abuses from GHWB and his associates. After they tried to assassinate President Reagan, the BCC had Wanta arrested on bogus charges in Switzerland and transferred to a prison in America on a phony tax charge.
Quote:Wanta has canceled checks to show he paid the taxes which the State of Wisconsin claimed he didn’t and these charges are completely bogus.
These phony tax charges were a complete fraud. Because the false evidence presented was based on fraud, there can therefore be no statute of limitations for rectification now that we have a new administration and are going to have a new US Attorney General.
Trump’s victory has crushed the Bush Crime Cabal and now We The People may get an honest US Attorney General instead of the notably crooked, compromised ones we have had because of the BCC.
Now that the Trump Transition Team has both of Wanta’s unique, well thought out proposals, the ball is in their court.
Anyone who carefully considers Wanta’s two unique plans must conclude that not only do they make sense, but the price is right, since both are essentially prepaid with the Wanta fortune that is now illegally held in the Argo Trust that the Trump Administration can easily liberate.

It seems to me that Trump just has to DUMP BUSH Criminal Dyansty, and he'd get a barrier across the southern border that even BETTER than a "Wall"

Dig a deep enough line along border for cargo, and aircraft carriers to ride through the canal and there ain't NO Mexican that could a deep enough tunnel for drug smuggling!

Mexican officials have issued a nine state alert after a vehicle carrying mobile industrial radiography equipment filled with Iridium-192 was stolen in the city of Tlaquepaque in the state of Jalisco.
The company which handles the equipment, Tecnología No Destructiva, SA de CV, reported the theft of a white Nissan pickup truck on Sunday, saying it contained a metallic box with radiography tools filled with Iridium-192.
The loss of the unknown amount of radioactive material prompted the head of national emergency services, Luis Felipe Puente, to issue an alert in nine states.
[Image: C-NM6gqU0AAaDUB.jpg:large]

Taking to Twitter on Monday, Puente issued a public search alert for the stolen material in the states of Jalisco, Colima, Nayarit, Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, Michoacan San Luis Potosi, Durango, and Zacatecas.

Warning the public that the material must be handled with extreme caution, Puente said that Iridium-192 could cause “permanent injury to anyone who manipulates or is in contact with it for a short time.”

Bearing in mind the Operation in NYC this week, seems quite "an opportunity" for another False Flag in NYC

RE: Next President of the United Fates of America - Vianova - 04-25-2017

I see that you are doing just fine having fun here.

After the last episode of ugly nonsense between us all,
I am done here on this thread for the time being.

The bad blood displayed is not good for me, for you, or Bob, or the forum.
Seeing how I have to limit my time here at HM,
due to upcoming serious time constraints with being back in business etc etc,
something has to give ... or be curtailed in my posting time.

This thread and / or too much ancient math in other threads for instance,
takes up a lot of effort and time. {too much}
It was fun making the cartoon images,
but the argumentations,
over pathetic and sick fucked up and repugnant Syrian military propaganda trash,
isn't worth the bad blood it creates.

This is your thread now Wook.
Have fun if you want to continue the thread.

Russian propaganda has obviously bitten it's lip and tempered their opinions,
as they hopefully await Trump battling down the resistance,
by the huge anti Russian contingency in US governement.

Putin is desperate for the Exxon technology that will drill in their northern seas,
and extract the largest oil reserves on the planet.
Russia cannot provide it's own technology to accomplish that,
becasue they spend all their resources on their military.
That is the same reason their space program is still in the toilet,
and they cannot get a trash can past the Moon.

The Trump meeting with Xi Jinping is a calculated strategy that could easily fail.
It also may succeed,
in relation to N Korea, we shall see.
In the meantime, it is interesting that Trump realized that BUSINESS 
that actually makes real money across the board, 
may be better accomplished in China trade than with Russia which has little to offer,
other than oil exploratory venues.
This sets an economic / political strategy that puts more pressure on Putin over time.

I don't think we can trust the Chinese, 
and Trump is likely vulnerable to be burned by either Xi or Putin.
The Chinese however also have huge business interests in the USA.
In that regard,
and they make the Russians stand in line in political considerations it appears.

the North Korean mess is going to be addressed,
Chinese or no Chinese, that is becoming clear.

Assad is no less the Ghoul than Baktr al-Baghdadi.
Both need to be decapitated.
The situation in Syria will go to further into hell as more Iranian presence builds up.
Note the recent upsurge in US propaganda pointing at ---Iran -- not Syria.

The war with ISIS is a flash in the pan,
compared to the coming war with Iran.
and when that unfolds, 
then we have WW3.

When the Israelis hit Assad's air defenses and / or attack Iran,
I will certainly pop back in and say something.
I seriously doubt that the US is going to challenge the Russian air defenses,
protecting the remaining Syrian air force all sucked up in one Russian air base on the coast.

Syrian military has had to move their entire air force under that umbrella of protection,
at one Russian air base on the coast,
where Russians operate the s300 and s 400 air defense systems.
This tells you a lot about the entirety of Syrian air defense.
No wonder then that the Israeli's attack into Syria with impunity,
and take out Hezbollah supply convoys on their way to Lebanon.

Assad's days are numbered, 
and his army cannot occupy the rest of Syria,
with any prospect of efficiency or civil rule,
without large numbers of Iranian and Hezbollah military backup.
Russian jets cannot do that job either.
And Putin is not going to send in Russian soldiers to occupy Syria.

This war is guaranteed to go to Iran at some point, 
because they always were the end game.
Be it ISIS, al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, or the Kurds,
who all hate Iran,
or the US and Israel who will not allow Iranian military nuclear proliferation,
this Mid East Islamic Ghoul war always had it's end game with Iran.  

The next president of the USA is likely to be Pence,
once Trump crashes and burns which is being planned for by the Deep State.
Trump is crafty enough to adapt and possibly avoid his Deep State Funeral,
and you saw that with his 180's in policy.  

You still see the stock market working well even while Trump stumbles and bumbles.
When you see the stock market and real estate bubbles tank and plunge,
then you will see Trump do the same.
The silent catalyst,
that will propel Trump down into the toilet,
the catalyst that will subliminally grease and oil up his teflon slide into that toilet,
will be when he trashes state rights,
and the feds "enforce marijuana regulations".

Jeff Sessions is a cross between a munchkin from Oz and an alien critter jitter, a cretinous imp.
He is a fucking clown and an idiot and chimpanzee, 
and Trump policy on MJ is just stupid bullshit that will get him nothing but more political backlash.

Odds are good that ... like FSB said earlier,
Trump wont last out the rest of the year.
He does know how to adapt, but all that will most likely be too little too late.
I do wish him well,
until he goes after the states rights and MJ.
Then I will aid and promote all efforts to crump and stump the Trumpty Dumpty,
in his fall of the Wall.

You guys have fun in the meantime if you want to play out this thread, 
it's your thread now,
I won't even read, because that just gets me involved again,
and also because I find Syrian military propapganda and Assad,
to be some of the most vile,
and repugnant content on the planet, worse than ISIS itself.

Putin will continue to find himself deeper and deeper between a rock and a hard place,
with Syria and Iran,
just like Trump will, as he plays out his 180 degree baseball game with the Deep State.

Trump wants to be the home run batter,
but when he is up to bat these days,
he faces the catcher, 
not the pitcher,
and tries to knock the ball out of the catchers mitt over the wall,
behind the plate.

He is however, ... learning how to be more patient and take a free walk to first base.
His attack on the Syrian air base,
was a double into the gap in center field,
but he was stranded there at second base, and no real runs were scored.

First Transgender President: Trump Becomes Hillary

[Image: trump-clinton-trans-large.JPG]

By Fred Reed
April 23, 2017 "Information Clearing House" -   Oh Lord, it’s happening–the remanufacture of Trump by the Establishment. During the campaign, Trump and the Basilisk had nothing in common but their hair dye. Now, almost daily, he looks more like her.

He gets embarrassing. Regarding the alleged gassing in Syria, quote Donald:

“When you kill innocent children, innocent babies — babies, little babies — with a chemical gas … that crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line. … And I will tell you, that attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me … my attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much.”

God almighty. Who wrote this–a middle school girl with C’s in English, or the President of the United States? Did he retire to his bedroom for a good cry?

Apparently he ordered his missile strike without bothering to find out what happened. The usual suspects are driving him like a sports car.

The election was a choice between fetor and a lunatic. We chose the lunatic. Whether this was better than the alternative, we will never know, but Trump is going from bad to worse, or as the Mexicans say, de Guatemala a Guatepeor.

Does he believe this stuff? Is he naive enough to think that there was something unusually horrible about the attack? Horrible, yes, but not in the least unusual. Do you know what everyday, boring artillery does to children? Five-hundred-pound bombs? Hellfire rockets? Daily Mr. Trump’s military and his allies daily drop shrapnel-producing explosives on people, cities, towns, adults, children, weddings and goatherds in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. Good draft-dodger that he was, he probably has never seen any of this. Good psychopath that he may be, he may not care.

This whole gas-attack business smells to high heaven. It looks nicely calculated to force him to attack Assad. Gas was important: Killing babies, little babies with explosives is so routine that no one cares, but we have been programmed to shudder at the thought of Gas!

Actually artillery has killed several orders of magnitude more people, but never mind.

Targeting children was a nice touch. Definitely a PR bonus. So Donald goes into his Poor-widdle-fings weep, while Americans weekly kill more children in three to seven countries, depending on the date.
 Is the man consciously a liar? Hasn’t got sense enough to think before operating his mouth? Actually believes what  he says when he says it?

Glance at a small part of the record and focus on his changing his tune, not on whether you agree with a particular policy. Erratic, erratic, erratic. He was going to run out the illegals within two years, absurd but he said it. Going to put high tariffs on Mexican goods. Didn’t. On Chinese goods. Isn’t. Tear up the Iran treaty. Didn’t.  Declare China a currency-manipulator. Isn’t. Ban Muslims. Hasn’t. Promote good relations with Russia. Isn’t. Get the US out of Syria. Ha. Make NATO pay for itself. Isn’t. The man has the steely determination one associates with bean curd. You cannot trust  anything the man says.

Having been reprogrammed as a good neocon, bombing places he promised to get out of, looking for a fight with Russia, he is now butting heads with Fat Thing in North Korea. He his said things closely resembling, “We have run out of strategic patience with the North. If nobody else will take care of it, we will.” Grrrr. Bowwow. Woof.
The problem with growly ultimata made for television is that somebody has to back down–that is, lose face and credibility. If Trump had quietly told Fat Thing, “If you crazy bastards scrap your nuke program, we will drop the sanctions,” it might have worked.  But no. Negotiations would imply weakness. Thus an ultimatum.

So now either (a) Fat Thing knuckles under, humiliating himself and possibly endangering his grasp on power or (b) Trump blinks in a humiliating display of the Empire’s impotence, possibly endangering his grasp on power.
Kim Jong Il, or Il Sung Jong, or whatever the the hell the latest one of them is called, shows not the slightest sign of backing down. So does the Donald start an utterly unpredictable war, as usual in somebody else’s country, or does he weasel off, muttering, and hope nobody notices?

Fred’s Third Law of International Relations: Never butt heads with a country that has a missile named the No Dong.
Many of us favored Trump, slightly daft though he was, because he wasn’t yet Hillary, wasn’t yet a neocon robot, and didn’t want war with every country he had heard of, apparently meaning a good half dozen. At least he said he didn’t, not yet having been told that he did. In particular, he didn’t want war with Russia. But when the neocons control the media and Congress, they can convince a naive public of anything and, apparently, the President.

Why is the Hillarification of Trump important? The necessary prior question: What is the greatest threat to the neocons’ American Empire? Answer: The ongoing integration of Eurasia under Chinese hegemony. The key countries in this are China, Iran, and Russia. (Isn’t it curious that, apart from the momentary distraction of North Korea, these countries have been the focus of New York’s hostility?) In particular if Russia and, through it, China develop large and very profitable trade with Europe, there goes NATO and with it the Empire.


Thus the eeeeeeeeeeek! furor about Russia as existential threat and so on. Thus sending a few troops to Baltic countries to “deter” Russia. This was theater. The idea that a thousand garrison troops can stop the Russian army, which hasn’t gone silly as ours has, on its doorstep is loony.

Hillary was on board with the Russia hysteria and the globalization and the immigration and so on.  Trump could have screwed the whole pooch by getting along with Russia, so he had to be reconfigured. And was. A work in progress, but going well.

Too  much is being asked of him. One man cannot overcome the combined hostility of the media, the political establishment, the neocons, the myriad other special interests that he has threatened. Mass immigration is a done deal. China develops and America, already developed, cannot keep up. The country disintegrates socially. Washington, always depending on war and its threat, faces a new world in which trade is the weapon, and doesn’t know what to do. The culture courses. The world changes.

Yet if only Trump showed some sign of knowing what he is doing, and could remember from day to day, if only he realized that wars are more easily started than predicted, if only he were not becoming an unbalanced Hillary.
Yet, apparently, he is.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, saying it was necessary to restore "public trust and confidence" in the nation's top law enforcement agency following several tumultuous months.

"The FBI is one of our nation's most cherished and respected institutions, and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement," Trump said in a statement.

The White House said the search for a new FBI director was beginning immediately.

The White House made the stunning announcement shortly after the FBI corrected a sentence in Comey's sworn testimony on Capitol Hill last week. Comey told lawmakers that Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, had sent "hundreds and thousands" of emails to her husband's laptop, including some with classified information.

On Tuesday, the FBI said in a two-page letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that only "a small number" of the thousands of emails found on the laptop had been forwarded there while most had simply been backed up from electronic devices. Most of the email chains on the laptop containing classified information were not the result of forwarding, the FBI said.
Comey, 56, was nominated by President Barack Obama for the FBI post in 2013 to a 10-year term. Praised for his independence and integrity, Comey has spent three decades in law enforcement and has been no stranger to controversy.

I hope that maybe Hillary "might" get a Federal Grand Jury to decide whether or not to bring charges in a PUBLIC trial.

THAT is how it is supposed to work.  A Grand Jury decides if a prosecutor has enough evidence to bring charges, and which charges to be applied for the arrest warrant to the defendant, who THEN gets a OPEN trial with their own attorneys for the plaintiff's defense in front of a Jury of 12 American People to FINALLY decide if one is guilty or not. 

If Guilty, you have an appeals process to go through, and still remain free (if you're RICH which Hillary is) on bail while the appeal goes through, unless you're a flight risk.  Which I think Hillary this case DOES apply.  She has enough funds and cash to leave USA and anywhere else and remain free FOREVER !!!

It is NOT the head of FBI authority to decide, SINGLY BY HIMSELF, whether she was guilty or not. PERIOD !!!

Glad the man is GONE from FBI, maybe we can eve re-open 911 ???

Senate Judiciary Chairman Confirms Trump Is Not Under FBI Investigation
[Image: Comey-Grassley-Feinstein-Carolyn-KasterAP-640x480.jpg]

by KRISTINA WONG11 May 2017
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on Thursday vouched for President Trump’s assertion in a letter to former FBI Director James Comey that he was not under investigation by the FBI.

Grassley told committee members at an executive meeting that he and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) had met with Comey last week, and that he had briefed them on who the targets of the various investigations are.

“Senator Feinstein and I heard nothing that contradicted the President’s statement,” he said.

Feinstein then said after Grassley’s statement, “I very much appreciate what you’ve said and it’s very accurate, and we were briefed.”

Grassley said that, shortly after Comey had briefed them, he had tweeted that the then-FBI director should be more transparent.

“I said he should tell the public what he told Senator Feinstein and me about whether the FBI is or is not investigating the President,” he said.

“Now Mr. Comey is no longer the FBI director. But the FBI should still follow my advice. It should confirm to the public whether it is or is not investigating the President. Because it has failed to make this clear, speculation has run rampant.”

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week, Comey refused to confirm whether the president was under FBI investigation, saying that doing so put him on a slippery slope of having to answer who else is or is not under investigation.

“I understand why he took that position, but I don’t agree – at least not when it comes to the President and senior government officials. The American people deserve to know if senior government officials are under active criminal or intelligence investigation,” Grassley said.

The speculation went into overdrive on Wednesday, after Trump fired Comey in a surprise move. In Trump’s letter to Comey announcing the firing, he wrote: “I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation.”

Grassley said wild speculation that the FBI is targeting the president is “not just irresponsible and unfounded,” but also played into Russian goals to undermine the American public’s faith in democratic institutions.

“It provides aid and comfort to the Russians and their goal of undermining faith in our democracy,” he said.

Grassley also suggested other committee members get briefed by the FBI on “what is actually going on” before the committee does anything more in its investigation on Russian interference in the election.
“Hopefully, that will help temper some of the unsubstantiated statements that have been made,” he said.

Bangladesh PM: Clinton ‘Personally Pressured’ Her to Aid Foundation Donor Despite Ethics Laws

[Image: Hillary-PM-Bangledesh-Reuters-640x480.jpg]
A foreign government has revealed another one of the Clinton Foundation’s pay-to-play schemes.
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that Hillary Clinton “personally pressured” her to help a Clinton Foundation donor during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state in 2011, despite it being against ethics laws, Circa reported.
Hasina’s press secretary told Circa that Clinton placed a phone call to her office in March 2011 insisting that 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Muhammed Yunus get his job back as chairman of Grameen Bank, a famous microcredit bank in the country.
Yunus is chairman of the bank’s nonprofit Grameen America, which donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative, Circa reported.
Yunus also chairs Grameen Research, which donated an estimated $25,000 and $50,000 to CGI.
“Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton telephoned Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in March 2011 insisting her not to remove Dr. Muhammad Yunus from the post of Managing Director of Grameen Bank,” Deputy Press Secretary Md Nazrul Islam said.
Islam added that the prime minister told Clinton that the company’s rules and regulations require the chairperson of the bank to be no older than 60, even though Yunus was not removed from his position until he was 70 and he argued with the prime minister over his removal.
The Bangladesh government said that Grameen Bank is a “statutory body of the government” that must follow banking laws and that they told Clinton Yunus collected an illegal salary over the past ten years.
Yunus claims he was removed from his position due to “internal politics” and not because of any wrongdoing.
Grameen Bank was investigated in 2012 by the Bangladesh government for mismanagement of finances.
Yunus told the Independent in 2013 that he feared his ouster would cause the bank to be under too much government control and detract from the bank’s original mission.
“It will be a disaster,” Yunus said. “Everybody in Bangladesh knows that if any business is controlled by the government, it goes down. Now why do they want to do that for the bank?”
The Clinton Foundation has been plagued by many allegations of corruption for its pay-to-play schemes.
Breitbart News Editor-at-Large and Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer first reported these allegations, including the time when senior Clinton Foundation staffers coordinatedwith State Department officials during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state after the earthquake in Haiti in 2010 to give special treatment to “friends of Bill Clinton.”
Clinton Cash and the New York Times also exposed how then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved a deal with the Russian government that would give them of 20 percent of U.S. uranium while the Clinton Foundation received $145 million in donations from people connected to the sale.
The foundation announced in January that it would lay off 22 staffers as a result of the discontinuation of CGI.

Senator Stolen Valor

Posted on May 11, 2017 by Ray Starmann

[Image: Sen.-Richard-Blumenthal-1.jpg]

Last night, on CNN, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D., CT) told Anderson Cooper that President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, “may well produce impeachment proceedings.”
Blumenthal continued: “It may well produce another United States vs. Nixon on a subpoena that went to United States Supreme Court.”
Senator Blumenthal is simply parroting more Democratic talking points that are full of sound and fury and which signify nothing.
There was no Saturday Night Massacre II. There were no violations of the law on the President’s part. There were no dictatorial machinations.
There was nothing except an adherence to proper procedures that were followed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, appointed during the Obama administration, recommended to the President that Comey be terminated because of his blatant violations of his constitutional duties, his outright politicization of the FBI and because the men and women of the FBI had lost confidence in their director and believed he was nothing more than a corrupt, political hack.
Besides the fact that Blumenthal is just another liberal shill, his own ethical standards are anything but stainless. He has a closet stocked with enough skeletons to fill the haunted mansion at Disneyland.
In fact, the man is a complete scoundrel and a traitor to the veterans who fought, died and were wounded in the Vietnam War.
When speaking of who needs to be removed from public office, Blumenthal only needs to look in a mirror…
But, that would take a 2/3 Republican majority vote in the Senate and that isn’t happening soon.
For 30 years, Senator Blumenthal had been living a lie; a virtual Homeric tale with him as the hero serving with the Marine Corps in Vietnam until he was outed by the New York Times in 2010, during his Senatorial campaign.
The lies told by Blumenthal regarding his ‘Vietnam service’ are endless.
“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”
In 2003, he addressed a rally in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where about 100 military families gathered to express support for American troops overseas. “When we returned, we saw nothing like this,” Mr. Blumenthal said. “Let us do better by this generation of men and women.”
In at least eight newspaper articles published in Connecticut from 2003 to 2009, he is described as having served in Vietnam.
The New Haven Register on July 20, 2006, described him as “a veteran of the Vietnam War,” and on April 6, 2007, said that the attorney general had “served in the Marines in Vietnam.” On May 26, 2009, The Connecticut Post, a Bridgeport newspaper that is the state’s third-largest daily, described Mr. Blumenthal as “a Vietnam veteran.” The Shelton Weekly reported on May 23, 2008, that Mr. Blumenthal “was met with applause when he spoke about his experience as a Marine sergeant in Vietnam.”
And the idea that he served in Vietnam had become such an accepted part of his public biography that when a national outlet, Slate magazine, produced a profile of Mr. Blumenthal in 2000, it said he had “enlisted in the Marines rather than duck the Vietnam draft.”
In an interview, Jean Risley, the chairwoman of the Connecticut Vietnam Veterans Memorial Inc., recalled listening to an emotional Mr. Blumenthal offering remarks at the dedication of the memorial. She remembered him describing the indignities that he and other veterans faced when they returned from Vietnam.
“It was a sad moment,” she recalled. “He said, ‘When we came back, we were spat on; we couldn’t wear our uniforms.’ It looked like he was sad to me when he said it.”
Ms. Risley later telephoned the reporter to say she had checked into Mr. Blumenthal’s military background and learned that he had not, in fact, served in Vietnam.
In actuality, Blumenthal was given five, count ‘em five deferments to attend college from 1965 to 1970. The only place he ‘returned’ from was a sorority house. The only ‘coming home’ he did was when his mother picked him up at the train station during Christmas break.
When asked about the deferments, Blumenthal said,  there were “no special favors, no privileges involved.”
The deferments allowed Mr. Blumenthal to complete his studies at Harvard; pursue a graduate fellowship in England; serve as a special assistant to The Washington Post’s publisher, Katharine Graham; and ultimately take a job in the Nixon White House.
No doubt, the Marines at Khe Sanh or in Hue would have loved to have had a deferment, screw off at Harvard, chew the fat with Katherine Graham or hang with Tricky Dick in the Oval.
Blumenthal was another rich kid using political connections to avoid face time with Victor Charlie.
In 1970, with his deferments evaporating, Blumenthal found a way into a Marine Corps Reserve unit in the DC area. This assignment practically insured that he would never be deployed to Southeast Asia. He would never hear the crack of AK-47 rounds as they zipped past his head at supersonic speed. He would never walk a jungle trail in search of an elusive and deadly enemy, wondering if the next step would be his last.
Others did and did it bravely.
But, he didn’t. And, to say he did is not only a crime against the Marine Corps, but against his country.
From 1970 to 1976, Senator Blumenthal wasn’t within 5,000 miles of any shot and shell. His most dangerous assignment in the service was the precarious Operation Toys for Tots in the DC area.
Not exactly Ia Drang was it?
Not exactly Tet was it?
Not exactly the truth was it?
When he was cornered with the truth in 2010, Blumenthal could have done the honorable thing, apologize for his conduct unbecoming and then drop out of the race.
Instead, he stated that he may have misspoken about his military service on several occasions and offered a terse apology. His dishonorable conduct had almost no influence on his candidacy in liberal Connecticut.
Blumenthal defeated Linda McMahon, 55 to 43 percent. Unfortunately, the 58,000 young men and women who died in Vietnam never had a chance to vote against him.
The Stolen Valor Act of 2013 states that is against the law to falsely claim military honors for “money, property or other tangible benefit.”
Although, Blumenthal was not claiming that he received any valorous awards, he was using his contrived Vietnam service to be elected to the Senate, which certainly entitled him to monetary gain and other federal benefits. From 1984 to 2010, he continually betrayed the public trust during his tenure in the Connecticut House, the state Senate and as the state Attorney General, by continuing to lie about his military service for his personal advancement.
Prosecuting Blumenthal for violating the Stolen Valor Act of 2013 should be considered.
Senator Blumenthal is a disgrace to the US Senate and this nation. His continued service in Congress is a blatant insult to the brave men and women who served in Vietnam and who, ‘drained deep the chalice of courage.’

The Latest: Arrow Comey declines to testify before Senate panel LilD
[Image: 1837ik8-640x427.jpg]
[img=640x0][/img]The Associated Press
by AP12 May 2017
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump and the FBI (all times local):

4:35 p.m.
Former FBI Director James Comey has declined an invitation to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week.
That’s according to an aide to the committee’s chairman, GOP Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina.
The committee had hoped to hear from Comey in closed session following his abrupt firing this week by President Donald Trump.
The Intelligence Committee is in the midst of a broad investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and ties with Trump’s campaign.
4:30 p.m.
President Donald Trump says he won’t discuss whether his White House conversations are tape-recorded.
He tweeted earlier Friday that ousted FBI director James Comey should hope “there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations.”
Trump says in an interview with Fox News that he can’t — and won’t — talk about any possible tape recordings.
He says: “All I want is for Comey to be honest. And I hope he will be.”
Trump’s remarks follow earlier statements that Comey gave him three separate assurances — at a dinner and in two phone calls — that he was not under investigation.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer declined to discuss the potential tape recordings.
3:45 p.m.
President Donald Trump is considering nearly a dozen candidates to succeed ousted FBI Director James Comey, a group that includes several lawmakers, attorneys and law enforcement officials.
White House officials say the list includes Texas Sen. John Cornyn, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, former Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
Others include former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher, former federal judge Michael Luttig, former Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson and acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
That’s according to two White House officials briefed on the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal plans.
Trump is considering naming an interim director from a group of current FBI officials, along with nominating a permanent replacement.
— By Jill Colvin and Ken Thomas
3:05 p.m.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will brief the full Senate next week amid controversy over President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s office confirmed Friday that Rosenstein had accepted the invitation extended by Schumer and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The time and date are not yet finalized.
Rosenstein wrote a memo critical of Comey that the White House initially cited as justification for Trump’s firing of Comey. But the story subsequently changed as Trump said he would have fired Comey anyway.
Senators have many questions for Rosenstein, and his responses may help determine how the still-developing controversy plays out.
3 p.m.
Top House Democrats are calling on President Donald Trump to release all his communications with former FBI Director James Comey.
In a letter to White House Counsel Don McGahn, they request “all documents, memoranda, analyses, emails and other communications” with Comey.
The letter was sent by Reps. John Conyers Jr. of the House Judiciary Committee, and Elijah Cummings of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Trump tweeted Friday that Comey “better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
Conyers and Cummings also wrote that Congress should immediately seek the testimony of Comey “to better understand the circumstances surrounding these events, although no House committee chairman has yet agreed to any such hearings.”
2:05 p.m.
The White House is denying that President Donald Trump asked then-FBI director James Comey for his loyalty during a White House dinner in January.
Press secretary Sean Spicer is refuting that account during his daily briefing. He says the president wants “loyalty to this country and to the rule of law.”
An associate of the fired FBI director confirmed Friday that Trump asked for Comey’s loyalty during the private dinner. The associate with knowledge of the conversation confirmed an account of the conversation in The New York Times is accurate.
During the dinner, Comey refused to pledge his loyalty and instead offered the president his honesty.
The FBI is looking into Russia’s influence in the 2016 presidential election and any potential ties to Trump’s campaign.
2 p.m.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is declining to say whether President Donald Trump taped conversations he had with fired FBI Director James Comey.
Spicer says: “The president has nothing further to add on that.”
Spicer was asked multiple times during the daily White House briefing about the president’s Friday morning tweet stating that, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
Spicer said the tweet was “not a threat” warning Comey not to talk to the press.
But Spicer insists that, “the tweet speaks for itself.”
Trump suddenly fired Comey on Tuesday. The FBI is investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump’s campaign and aides.
Trump has dismissed those allegations as a “hoax.”
1:45 p.m.
The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee is asking the president to hand over to Congress any recordings that might exist of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey.
California Rep. Adam Schiff says if recordings exist, it would be because President Donald Trump made them.
Trump fired Comey Tuesday and on Friday threated Comey in a tweet that he’d “better hope there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations.”
As he defended his decision to fire Comey, Trump revealed the two men dined alone at one point and during the dinner Trump asked whether he was under investigation.
The FBI has been investigating Russia’s election meddling and possible ties between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.
1:40 p.m.
The Senate Judiciary Committee’s chairman and top Democrat are demanding to be updated on the status of the FBI’s probe of Russian influence in the 2016 election and any possible ties to the Trump campaign.
Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Dianne Feinstein of California say their committee oversees the FBI and should get the same information the Senate Intelligence Committee receives. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein met Thursday with the leaders of the intelligence panel.
Grassley and Feinstein sent a letter Friday to Rosenstein and acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. They say former FBI Director James Comey had briefed them in mid-March on the bureau’s Russia probe. They now want the whole Judiciary Committee to be brought up-to-date.
1:10 p.m.
Former national intelligence director James Clapper says ousted FBI Director Jim Comey was uneasy about having dinner with President Donald Trump on Jan. 27.
Clapper tells MSNBC on Friday that he spoke briefly with Comey about the dinner before they attended a retirement celebration for Clapper.
He says Comey mentioned that he had been invited to have dinner with Trump and was “uneasy with it.” Clapper says Comey was concerned about the “optics” of that because it might appear that he or the FBI was not working independently of the White House.
12:20 p.m.
The nation’s former top spy is pushing back against President Donald Trump’s tweeting.
The president tweeted Friday that when former national intelligence director James Clapper “says there is no collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russians, then when does the “witch hunt” end?
Trump was referring to Clapper saying that there was no evidence of collusion included in the intelligence agencies’ report on Russian interference in the election. That assessment was released before Trump took office.
Clapper, who retired in January, says he didn’t know about the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Clapper says he does not know if there’s evidence of collusion or not because he was not privy to that FBI probe, nor should he have been.
12:35 p.m.
An associate of fired FBI director James Comey confirms President Donald Trump asked for Comey’s loyalty during a White House dinner in January.
The associate with knowledge of the conversation says Friday that an account of the conversation in the New York Times is accurate.
During the dinner, Comey refused to pledge his loyalty and instead offered the president his honesty.
The White House has disputed this account. Trump told NBC News Thursday that Comey assured Trump twice during a dinner and again by telephone that he isn’t under investigation.
The FBI is probing Russia’s influence in the 2016 presidential election and any possible ties to Trump’s campaign.
Comey hasn’t commented publicly since he was dismissed. The associate spoke on condition of anonymity to disclose details of a private conversation.

11:10 a.m.
The No. 2 Senate Democrat, Dick Durbin of Illinois, says President Donald Trump is “dangerous.”
Durbin says Trump is “dangerous because he may be obstructing justice” in the investigation of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election and possible ties to Trump’s own campaign.
And, Durbin says, “his credibility has been destroyed.”
Durbin says: “When you’re the leader of the free world you need to be credible” — in your own country and around the world. The Illinois Democrat says Trump has lost credibility, given his firing of FBI Director James Comey and a constantly shifting explanation for why it happened.
Durbin made his comments Friday on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.
10:10 a.m.
President Donald Trump’s lawyers say a review of his last 10 years of tax returns do not reflect “any income of any type from Russian sources,” with some exceptions.
The lawyers did not release copies of Trump’s tax returns so The Associated Press cannot independently verify their conclusions.
The letter says there is no equity investment by Russians in entities controlled by Trump or debt owed by Trump to Russian lenders. It does reflect income from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant held in Moscow and a property sold to a Russian billionaire in 2008 for $95 million.
The White House says Trump asked his lawyers for a letter following a request from Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who heads one of the congressional committees investigating Russia’s interference in last year’s election.
8:45 a.m.
President Donald Trump is warning that former FBI Director James Comey “better hope” that there are no “tapes” of their conversations.
Trump tweeted Friday, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
Trump fired Comey on Tuesday, later saying that “he wasn’t doing a good job.”
In the termination letter to Comey, Trump thanked him for telling the president “three times” that he personally is not under investigation for collusion with Russia during his 2016 campaign.
Trump said in an NBC News interview Thursday that Comey told him once over dinner and twice by telephone that he isn’t under investigation.
Comey has not commented since he was fired.
8:30 a.m.
President Donald Trump is reiterating his view that reports about collusion with the Russian government by members of his 2016 campaign are “fabricated.”
The president tweeted early Friday that “Again, the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election.”
He added, “The Fake Media is working overtime today!”
In an interview with NBC News Thursday, Trump said he asked FBI Director James Comey point-blank if he was under investigation and was assured three times he was not.
Trump sent Comey a letter Tuesday firing him. In it, he thanked Comey for the three assurances.
Trump showed no concern that the request might be viewed as interference in an active FBI probe.
8:20 a.m.
President Donald Trump says his busy schedule makes it “not possible” for his staff to speak at the podium with “perfect accuracy.”
Trump on Friday defended the struggle by his administration to come up with a consistent timeline and rationale for the abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey this week.
Trump tweeted, “As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!”
He added, “Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future ‘press briefings’ and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???”
The president’s advisers said Trump fired Comey in response to a recommendation by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, then said Trump had planned to fire Comey regardless.
3:45 a.m.
President Donald Trump is contradicting previous White House explanations for the firing of James Comey as FBI director.
Trump says in an interview with NBC News that he had planned to fire Comey all along, regardless of the recommendations of top Justice Department officials.
Initially the White House cited a Justice Department memo criticizing Comey’s handling of last year’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails as the impetus for Trump’s decision.
On Capitol Hill, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe strongly disputed the White House’s assertion that Comey had been fired in part because Comey had lost the confidence of the FBI’s rank-and-file.
In the NBC interview, Trump derided Comey as a “showboat” and “grandstander” and said Comey had left the FBI in “virtual turmoil.”


Obama Once Said The American Dream Is To ‘Be Donald Trump’ LilD

[Image: RTSWKJQ-e1486475818425.png]

A recently unearthed essay co-written by Barack Obama in 1991 stated that the American dream is to be Donald Trump.

Penned while the former president was a graduate student at Harvard Law — with the help of fellow classmate Robert Fisher — “Race and Rights Rhetoric” summed up the American mindset as “a continuing normative commitment to the ideals of individual freedom and mobility, values that extend far beyond the issue of race in the American mind.”

“The depth of this commitment may be summarily dismissed as the unfounded optimism of the average American
Quote:I may not be Donald Trump now, but just you wait; if I don’t make it, my children will.”- Barry Obama


The excerpt of that previously unpublished law school paper found its way inside Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, the new 1,460-page biography written by Pulitzer Prize winning historian David Garrow that focuses on Obama’s early years.

The paper argued that black Americans should “shift away from rights rhetoric and towards the language of opportunity.”

Though Obama would later channel the “language of opportunity” during his speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention that skyrocketed him into the public spotlight, his legacy has since been tarnished by criticisms of his failure to help African Americans.

Donald Trump is now President of the United States.
