2018 is done and we are still waiting on the ‘glorious’ revolution

As the closing hours of  2018 tick off, it’s time to take a moment to assess the year that was.

It was promised to be glorious eight times in various drops. It was going to be quite notable. It failed on both measures although the goalposts were moved many, many times.

While there have been some wins, the Senate majority increase. Some ugly wins such as the Brett Kavanaugh appointment to the Supreme Court. Some wins appear to be hollow, like President Trump’s decision to declassify the FISA courts documents.

However we still have Rod Rosenstein at the Justice Department. Trump has replaced Attorney General Jeff Sessions with Acting AG Matt Whitaker, but still no movement on the release of the burning documents.

We also see Special Counsel Robert Mueller entering his third calendar year without any charges being brought against President Trump or his campaign for colluding with the Russians on the 2016 presidential election.

2018 left without any further information from any authorities concerning the whereabouts and contents of Hillary Clinton’s  private email server(s) or the Clinton Foundation’s lack of transparency and involvement in financing the Fusion/GPS Russian collusion report.

In another example of moving the goalposts, we are told the Executive Order, which goes into effect on Jan.1, 2019, will allow for greater leeway for federal prosecutors to bring charges under military tribunal rule of law.

Well we don’t have to wait very long to see how this plays out.

Will 2019 be glorious? I don’t need the bar to be that high. I just want it to be proactive.

Ex-FBI lawyer’s testimony confirms Democrats Russian collusion

Ex-FBI General Counsel James Baker in testimony confirms much of what I have written regarding senior Obama DOJ/FBI officials working with Clinton presidential campaign to spy on Trump campaign and the President-elect’s staff using fraudulent documents.

Baker’s was before the House Judiciary Committee behind closed doors on Wednesday as well as giving testimony to a grand jury impaneled by Utah-based federal prosecutor John Huber. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was in Salt Lake City, Utah on Wednesday.

The revelations in Baker’s testimony suggests that the Obama White House officials urged Loretta Lynch’s agency to work with at least one attorney from Perkins Cole the DNC/Clinton campaign law firm.

Perkins Cole was behind the hiring and creation of the Trump Dossier by Fusion/GPS and ex-British spy Christopher Steele.

Although the published report from The Hill does not disclose where this testimony came from, it is safe to assume that all investigative panels will have this same information in due course.

Sessions is scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary panel Thursday. While he had recused himself from the Dossier probe, it is believed he will receive documents during the questioning that will reveal the partisan plot to destroy the Trump presidency through nefarious Democratic actions.

Sessions will then be able to legally get involved in the dismantling of Special Counsel  Robert Mueller’s Trump/Russia collusion probe since its basic tenets were flawed.

Plenty of moving parts going on and I believe we will have a big reveal in the next week as the Republicans look to put the final nails into the Democrats coffin before the midterm elections in early November.

One last thing, be aware that there is a DOJ press event at 9:30am Thursday, just prior to Sessions’ testimony. Could Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein be the topic? We’ll see.

Trump has an October Surprise in his pocket for midterms

Back in April of this year I wrote about what is now coming to the fore.

The story dribbling out now is how the Carter Page Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant was issued based on the Trump Dossier, which was paid for in large part by the Clinton campaign. Yes you have Fusion/GPS and Christopher Steele operating with Clinton campaign and the Obama White House all of which I covered here.

The whole Russian collusion case is based on lies forged in the dossier and circulated to partisan federal law enforcement staff in the FBI and DOJ, who cleaned it up a bit and included some other “questionable” facts and presented the finding to the FISA court for the surveillance warrant. The feds did not tell the court that the application was based largely on Clinton campaign opposition research.

The first ruling from the court did not grant the warrant, so the document was re-circulated among the same staffers: AG Loretta Lynch, FBI director James Comey, his second in charge, Rod Rosenstein, FBI investigator Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page among others and reissued to the court and was approved. All of this is known to my readers months ago.

However until the unredacted FBI application for the warrant is released Americans will not know the truly despicable acts taking place within the Obama White House to ensure a Hillary Clinton victory.

The most interesting development — largely overlooked by the press — was that the redacted FBI application was released at all. FISA operations have the highest security clearance in government. FISA operations are not subject to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. So who approved its release?

Only one person could declassify the heavily redacted FBI warrant application: President Trump. Will the President declassify the entire report? That could be an October Surprise in time for the midterm elections.

 

 

 

Q-Anon told of McCabe’s firing weeks ago. Look out Mueller and Rosenstein

As I wrote yesterday this Q-Anon entity is very interesting in its ability to foreshadow the future. The posts two weeks ago laid out much of what we see today in the news.

While Monday’s news below was unsettling, there is another shoe to drop dealing with Robert Mueller. Continue reading
