Western Europe rioters rejecting globalist agendas, chanting “We want Trump”

Quite a weekend with the death of former President George HW Bush. But I want to focus on the events that are getting little coverage here in the US.

Western Europe is exploding. Rioting in Paris over President Emmanuel Macron’s economic policies, which favors rich Parisians versus the people living in the countryside.

TV reports showed protesters chanting. “We want Trump,” while marching amongst burning cars.

Smaller but widespread rioting is taking place in Brussels and Germany with no reports in major media.

While western media point to Macron raising gas prices to combat environmental concerns of the rich, which don’t rely on their cars as much as the underlying cause of the protests.

The gilets jaunes or “yellow vests” crowd marched on the Arc de Triomphe and ironically set fire to dozens of cars harkens back to the Revolution Vive La Resistance that ultimately brought about Bastille Day and then end of royalty in France.

The French Revolution came about because of a tone-deaf monarchy raised taxes on basic food staples like bread and cheese of the citizenry. The suburban and rural population need to be able to travel by car, since the government has neglected to develop provincial alternate travel.

To raise the French Revolution is not out of the blue or purple actually, since the liberal left attempted to stage its own version of Revolution — Vive La Resistance — against President Trump in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election.

However the next two days in Washington will be about getting information to prosecute the resistance movement of Democrats conspiring to work against Trump getting elected.

Monday we have former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Tuesday ex-FBI Director James Comey testifying before House committees on the abuses of the FISA court.

Federal attorney John Huber was slated Wednesday to update the House committee on his investigation of the Clinton Foundation, but that will need to be rescheduled since it’s the Federal holiday to mourn the death of President Bush.

Vive la difference between western Europe and the US. America has Donald Trump in the White House and the rioters have a Hillary Clinton-type leader, who have a globalist agenda, which screws the population and they have had enough with that.

Not counting on a December to remember

We have possibly an action-packed week coming up with congressional testimony from former Obama DOJ chief Loretta Lynch on Monday and ex-FBI James Comey on Tuesday.

On Wednesday US Attorney John Huber is slated to give his update to Congress on his probe into the Clinton Foundation.

Now there is plenty of speculation over the “Locked & (who is) Loaded” comment as to Lynch being ready to speak on the Obama administration’s involvement on spying on the Trump campaign and after the election. Under threat of releasing the declassified FISA documents will move Lynch to be truthful in order not to perjure herself.

I’ll reserve my enthusiasm for this since I have seen this build up before only to be disappointed by the actual event. It could be that Sunday night both or one could decline the congressional invitation to testify and let the committees deal with that in the next few days remaining in Republican-controlled House.

Shutting down the government by not passing the spending bill will just be used as a time suck to slow or stop any House inquiries will be delayed (cancelled) as lawmakers scramble to get bill passed so they can get out of Washington for holidays.

Being vigilant during December will probably have little to do with keeping up with actions and more to do with staying the course despite nothing really coming from the anticipated actions.

Maybe I’m too jaded at this point, but I would like see a boom, boom. I only need two and they can be lower case.

FISA release ends Mueller’s witch hunt

So why on Monday afternoon did special counsel Robert Mueller announce that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort violate his plea deal by lying to the feds.

Just as a refresher Mueller’s team have a Manafort conviction on 8 counts of financial fraud that occurred prior to his involvement with the Trump campaign. He also took a plea agreement n September admitting to fraud and tax evasion over his lobbying work for a pro-Russian political party and politician in Ukraine. Again before being involved in the Trump campaign.

Part of the court filing from Monday stated: “After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement,” Mueller’s team wrote in a 3-page filing.

No further information on what he lied about. The filing only stated that the lies would be revealed on a later date.

I’m not here to defend Manafort, who is a career political fixer and influencer, but I do question the timing of the filing.

It comes on the heels that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker is about to release the FISA documents and ex-AG Loretta Lynch and ex-FBI chief James Comey are going to be brought in front of Congress to testify on actions pertaining to FISA court abuses. Only to be followed up by Federal prosecutor John Huber’s update to Congress on his probe into the Clinton Foundation.

These events scheduled for the beginning of next week should poke huge holes into Mueller’s working premise that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 presidential election cycle.

What we can surmise from reports on the unredacted FISA documents is that the Democratic National Committee along with perhaps the Clinton Foundation provided funds to produce a report written by Christopher Steele with research help from Nellie Ohr (wife of DOJ staffer Bruce Ohr) and contributions from the British, Australian and New Zealand spy agencies (part of the Five Eyes program) to dupe the FISA court to get a warrant to spy on Trump campaign staffers and the Trump Tower offices.

Remember the first time the DOJ went before the court with Steele’s report the surveillance application was turned down. Only after the Obama Administration leaked the report to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman and used her clippings as evidence that something was going on in the second application did the court issue the warrant.

So out of all this falsehood (and believe me I have only scratched the surface of this topic here) Robert Mueller is named special counsel by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein in early 2017. And is it any wonder why we only see indictments and plea deals for actions that have occurred prior to the presidential campaign?

Between Whitaker and Huber we need to get the FISA documents out in the open for all to see and understand who the real colluders were. And it had nothing to do with the Russians, but everything to do with the Obama White House in cahoots with our “allies” to take down the Trump presidency.

Will Dec. 5th become new day of infamy?

So Dec. 5th has come out in the drops as a pivotal day. We have seen these pronouncements before.

As I wrote last week, ex-FBI Director under President Obama James Comey and his Justice Dept boss Loretta Lynch are scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary Committee headed by outgoing Congressman Bob Goodlatte on Dec 3rd and 4th.

The question raised is will the declassified FISA documents be released before or after the testimony since all the sign offs for the release of the FISA warrant applications have already been secured and therefore the administration can use Obama’s Executive Order 13526, Sec 1.7 reads:

“Classification Prohibitions and Limitations. (a) In no case shall information be classified, continue to be maintained as classified, or fail to be declassified in order to:
(1) conceal violations of law, inefficiency, or administrative error;
(2) prevent embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency;
(3) restrain competition; or
(4) prevent or delay the release of information that does not require protection in the interest of the national security.”

On Dec 5th US Attorney John Huber is scheduled to give the House Oversight subcommittee chaired by Republican Mark Meadows an update on the probe into the Clinton Foundation. This probe is part of the investigation Huber his heading with Justice Department personnel. Huber was appointed by ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions in late 2017.

So the questioned posed is does the FISA docs inform the committee of the nefarious operations of the Obama White House during the 2016 presidential election or does it refute the testimony after the fact?

Huber’s testimony on the day after Comey and Lynch finish up their questioning could go to the Clinton Foundation’s funding of the Christopher Steele report, which was used to trick the FISA court into issuing a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. That could be the time to release the documents to refute the prior testimony in front of Goodlatte’s committee.

My thought based on Comey’s comments last week about him wanted an open hearing, which could not raise classified information, that the release of the documents will happen prior. Damn the perjury charges.

Comey, Lynch to face judiciary committee questioning

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family.

It was revealed Thursday that the House Judiciary committee has subpoenaed ex-FBI  Director James Comey and President Obama’s  Attorney General Loretta Lynch to testify early next month

It was confirmed that Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the outgoing Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee  will have Comey and Lynch testifying before the committee on Dec. 3 and Dec 4 respectfully. Lynch had no response to the subpoena news.

Lynch will be asked how her office approved the spying of a presidential candidate and president-elect using dubious partisan evidence presented to the FISA court. She could also be grilled on her “surprise” tarmac meeting in Phoenix with former President Bill Clinton.

Comey, who was fired by President Trump in May 2017 took an interesting tack on Tweeter on Thursday:

Happy Thanksgiving. Got a subpoena from House Republicans. I’m still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions. But I will resist a “closed door” thing because I’ve seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion. Let’s have a hearing and invite everyone to see.

The ex-FBI chief knows that if he “resists a closed-door” hearing, the questioning will be far more pedestrian since investigators will not be able to cite classified information in the hearing. Comey’s lawyer said he would sue if compelled to testify behind close doors.

It has little to do with “sitting in the light” and everything to do with keeping secrets in the dark.

“Dark to light” is what all these investigations are about, so it’s very interesting Comey would use that imagery.
