Video: Liz Cheney Reminds Pelosi, Schiff of One Important Thing They’re Forgetting About Impeachment Process

Screen grab via C-SPAN.

When it comes to questioning the secretive nature of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s and House Intel Chair Adam Schiff’s so-called “impeachment inquiry” process, Rep. Liz Cheney has not been shy about speaking her mind.

Cheney, who is the GOP Conference Chair, asked Pelosi earlier this month what she knew and when she knew it regarding the Trump/Zelensky call transcript from July. Cheney’s question came in response to comments Pelosi made during a 60 Minutes interview where she stated she knew what was in the transcript before it was okayed for release by the White House.

“This is starting to seem like a political set up,” tweeted Cheney at the time:

As Democrats continue to bang the impeachment drum and top Republicans in the House have gotten louder on questioning why they are being excluded from large parts of the process, Cheney provided a timely reminder for Pelosi and Schiff earlier this week as to an important part of the process they were deliberately overlooking. Here’s what she said:

“I think one of the really important things to recognize about the impeachment effort is the extent to which the materials are being kept in secret not just from the public, but kept in secret from other members.

So, we have had members go down and attempt to read the transcripts, for example Kurt Volker’s testimony and they were denied access.

The Constitution of the United States does not say that the power of impeachment resides with Speaker Pelosi, doesn’t say it resides with the Speaker of the House, doesn’t say that it resides with the Chairman of the Intel Committee. It says it resides with the House of Representatives.

And it is really a shameful miscarriage of their responsibilities and their duties for them to be conducting this exercise in which they will not even share information with members of Congress beyond the select few who they have identified.”

Watch Cheney’s remarks below:

Over to you, Madame Speaker.

Pelosi Attacks Trump on Syria, But Her Troubling Remark Reveals How Ignorant She Is

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-18-at-3.17.37-PM Pelosi Attacks Trump on Syria, But Her Troubling Remark Reveals How Ignorant She Is Syria Russia putin Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) gave a press conference where she chastised President Donald Trump for pulling about 50 Special Forces operators from near the Syrian border.

But in her attempt to attack Trump, she revealed just how dangerously ignorant she is of what’s going on in the region.

“I also pointed out to the president I had concerns that all roads seemed to lead to Putin,” she said. “The Russians have been trying to get a foothold in the Middle East unsuccessfully, and now the President has given them an opportunity.”

Um, Madam Speaker?

Russia has had a naval base in Syria since 1971. They’ve been providing military support in the Syrian civil war on behalf of the Assad government since 2015, when they came in after Barack Obama’s many “red line” threats against the Assad regime using chemical weapons amounted to nothing. The Russians proclaimed subsequently that they were making their presence permanent.

That’s not even talking about Russia’s involvement elsewhere in the Middle East such as with Iran.

Odd and pretty troubling that the Speaker doesn’t recall or seem to understand that. But it’s not surprising, considering why.

Doubtless she forgets how, unlike the Obama administration, the Trump administration actually dropped bombs, quite literally, on the Russians in February 2018, killing as many as 300 Russians, after Russian military contractors helping the Assad government fired on a US position in Syria.

From Business Insider:

The February battle was reportedly incredibly one-sided, as a massive column of mostly-Russian pro-Syrian regime forces approached an established US position in Syria and fired on the location.

The US responded with a massive wave of airstrikes that crippled the force before it could retreat, and then cleaned up the remaining combatants with strafing runs from Apache helicopters.

Phone calls intercepted by a US-funded news organization allegedly captured Russian military contractors detailing the humiliating defeat. “We got our f— asses beat rough, my men called me … They’re there drinking now … many have gone missing … it’s a total f— up,” one Russian paramilitary chief said, according to Polygraph.info, the US-funded fact-checking website.

Clearly not as “flexible” as the prior president.

But Pelosi would rather forget the facts while stoking the debunked Russia collusion hoax.

Let’s re-up this picture of the Speaker.

Trump vs. Beto Rallies in Dallas: Who Prevailed in Numbers?

Screenshot from this video

Let’s face it, Texas is still a pretty red state, despite the effort by Democrats to turn it blue. Trump carried the state by nine points in 2016.

But Democrats keep thinking they’re going to flip it and Robert Francis O’Rourke is from Texas.

So when O’Rourke said he would throw a counter-rally to President Donald Trump’s rally in Dallas on Thursday, who came out ahead in the rally numbers?

Well, in the lead up to the two events, it wasn’t even close.

As is typical with Trump rally events, people started lining up far in advance of the event because it’s first come, first get in.

According to the local news, people started lining up on Tuesday, two days before and thousands camped out before the event.

Here’s a shot of the line and folks camping out.

Here’s O’Rourke’s line beforehand on Thursday afternoon.

But O’Rourke’s attendance did pick up closer to the event, although they didn’t look particularly enthusiastic. They were definitely not into the woman with the bell trying to start a “Beto” chant.

Of course, Trump’s lines picked up too.

O’Rourke termed his event, a “Rally against Fear.” Not sure what this was a sample of the entertainment captured by Tom Elliott of Grabien is supposed to be showing. Warning for offensive language.

According to multiple accounts there were 5,532 people at O’Rourke’s rally.

But at the Trump rally, the American Airlines arena was packed, at 20,000 capacity with thousands more outside in overflow areas. Pretty massive crowd.

It wasn’t even close.

Ideological Pandemonium Breaks Out as Ben ‘Nazi’ Shapiro Prepares to Speak at Stanford, and I Have Questions

Controversial conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire and former editor-at-large of Breitbart News, addresses the student group Young Americans for Freedom at the University of Utah’s Social and Behavioral Sciences Lecture Hall, Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017. Shapiro uses his web-based talk show and online columns to support President Donald Trump’s policies and criticize the “self-righteous media.” (Leah Hogsten/The Salt Lake Tribune via AP, Pool)

 

 

If you’ve watched much of Ben Shapiro’s podcasts, you’re sure to have walked away with some characterizations — “fast talker” being among the possibilities.

One not likely to make your Top 10: Nazi.

Yet, in a world with more information at our fingertips than ever before, there are young people protesting his appearances with signs and language that make obvious they’ve not thought to find out who or what he actually is — they just heard some Satan guy was comin’, and they were down for some outrage.

If I may…

Unsolicited advice to protestors, in general: Only protest things you know about.

Better.

They’ve got plenty of time to put that into practice ahead of Ben’s speech at Stanford University — he’ll be talking fast in a big room on November 7th.

Some people are already decrying the event, including cartoonist Eli Valley, who believes Jewish Ben is Jewish hater (?) Ben (?).

Let’s look, for a moment, at some defining characteristics of Nazis:

  • Anti-Jew
  • Opposed to an armed citizenry
  • Socialist
  • Fond of banning things which don’t adhere to a particular viewpoint

Moving on, here’s Eli’s new ‘toon:

So college Republicans (AKA Hitler Youth) = hate group.

And hate group = opposing Jewish people.

But Eli Valley ≠ opposing Jewish person Ben being able to show up and speak somewhere.

It’s hard to imagine the Hitler Youth inviting a man with a yarmulke to school them on how to be smart.

It seems to me we’re at a place in society where a whole lot of things are said just because they seem like they’d sound good to say.

Don’t like someone? Call ’em a Nazi — those guys are supposed to be jerks. Think someone’s got wrong ideas? Label ’em a fascist ’cause you heard that’s bad. Then black their eye and ignite their car.

Hate who won the election? Say they’re ending the system of democracy forever and ever amen (here, here, and lots of other places, too). Impeach!

But in Eli’s defense, he did take time to explain why the YAF should be wearing Michael Jordan mustaches:

You’re right, Arsenio.

Sorry — here we go:

And they’re not just Nazis; they’re also terrorists:

“They should’ve been thrown off campus” — I’m not in any way suggesting Eli’s of the Third Reich persuasion, but isn’t that kind of a Nazi thing to say?



Another guy speaking out against Ben being allowed to talk on campus is Dr. Eugene Gu, who believes the prodigious violinist (here playing “Schindler’s List”) should be straitjacketed:

If you aren’t familiar with the reference, here’s Beto’s expressed plan to pull tax exemption from any institution which doesn’t endorse gay marriage, followed by Ben’s response:

Eugene’s absolutely anti-Ben-speaking because Shapiro has “zero…critical thinking skills”:

This was the doctor in July:

This is where I end the article abruptly like a bad SNL sketch, because I believe there’s nothing left to say. And I think it’s your turn — I look forward to hearing your thoughts on all this. Was Ben’s gun message wrong? Can you make sense of Eli’s Nazi deduction? Are you familiar with the propagandistic weekly German tabloid-format newspaper, Der Stürmer, or to what incident the cartoonish refers? Are you a man who’s had an abortion? Was Michael Jordan insane? Let us all know, in the Comments section.

Hillary Clinton Violated Classified Information Handling Rules and Her Lifetime Non-Disclosure Agreement

This is a short tutorial on classified information that explains what classified information is, how it is to be protected, the obligations of everyone granted access to it, and the rules governing its handling under all circumstances. After you read it, as well as this article I wrote, you will understand what Hillary Clinton did – knowingly – and her multiple felonies! There remain many Americans who don’t understand the rules, including the lifelong obligation that ANYONE granted access has to protect the information, and that the statutes are completely silent on “intent” regarding its compromise. In short, even if an inadvertent error is made resulting in the compromise (“spillage”) of classified information, that person is flat-out guilty of a felony – no questions asked. Anyone who states that Hillary showed no “intent” in compromising classified information via her server and therefore deserved to be exonerated by James Comey is lying.

What infuriates me are all the Hillary Clinton sycophants on CNN and MSNBC who themselves once had access to classified information, and who blithely continue to excuse the multiple felonies that she and her aides committed surrounding her unauthorized email server when they know the rules and obligations. She and her aides (and anyone else who had knowledge of what classified information passed through that server) can be prosecuted at any time, provided there is the political will to do so. Commentators and others who excuse her crimes are undermining that political will which, of course, is their goal.

There has been virtually ZERO honest investigative reporting on this subject by the legacy media since Hillary’s unauthorized server was first discovered despite the abundance of current and former military and intelligence community personnel available to explain the topic to the American people. On the contrary, those people have been covering for everyone who mishandled classified information that passed through that server. It is up to the rest of us to continue to demand accountability and harsh punishment if the justice that has been delayed is to be finally served. Thus, a little tutorial on classified info is in order to level-set those who have never held a security clearance.

Information is classified based on level of damage to national security if disclosed (Top Secret – exceptionally grave damage; Secret – serious damage; Confidential – damage). Higher levels of TS classification exist: Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) and Special Access Program (SAP). SCI is derived from intel sources and methods and must be handled very carefully with higher security protection requirements and very limited personnel access. SAP requires even stronger and more extraordinary protection measures (physical, information, personnel). The bottom line is that TS/SCI and TS/SAP information is the most carefully guarded national security and intelligence information produced and maintained in the US.

To gain access to any classified info, three things must happen:

  • A favorable determination of eligibility (a comprehensive background investigation completed)
  • A “need-to-know” (a valid requirement for access to the information)
  • A signed Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)

The NDA is a lifetime contract between a person and the government to protect classified info. It clearly delineates that violation of the Espionage Act of 1917 can result in fine, incarceration or even death. This includes: giving classified info to unauthorized individuals, causing classified info to be lost or stolen, or failing to report to security when you know or suspect that classified info has been provided to someone who is not authorized (PARTICULARLY NOTE this last part!). Here are the penalties for violation of Title 18 USC – Espionage: $10,000 fine for EACH offense, up to life imprisonment without parole, or the death penalty in certain circumstances (PARTICULARLY NOTE the “each offense” part!). The NDA also specifically identifies the regulations which govern classified information, including unauthorized disclosure: Section 793, 794, 790, and 952 of Title 18 USC, Section 783(b) of Title 60 USC, and EO 12356. These statutes have their own penalties for violations thereunder.

Here are some other miscellaneous tidbits to better understand classified information handling requirements. First of all, all classified information must be properly marked at the level at which it is classified. This is done down to the paragraph level in documents. Classification markings also apply to the electronic environment, too (e.g., web pages, Wiki’s, blogs, chat rooms, bulletin boards, and emails). In short, EVERYTHING classified must be properly marked.

There are two main systems for sending classified information electronically: Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) for TS and above information, and Secure Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET) for SECRET and CONFIDENTIAL information. These are basically secure private networks that enable people to use Microsoft Office and customized apps to exchange classified information. Email senders are responsible for maintaining the highest level of classification contained through a classified email chain, including attachments (and cannot arbitrarily downgrade or declassify something). Classification of a document is permanent until properly declassified.

SCI and SAP information are maintained and stored in special classified facilities: SCI Facilities (SCIF) and SAP Facilities (SAPF). Authorized access requirements to these facilities are extremely stringent and special handling rules apply to the info created/stored/maintained. SCI/SAP material cannot be removed from a SCIF/SAPF without prior approval of security personnel.

Removable media (DVDs, external hard drives, USB drives, etc.) are carefully controlled. All SCIFs/SAPFs have a designated media custodian responsible for control and accountability of all media (everything must be under direct control). Two-person integrity is required for all removable media once it enters a SCIF/SAPF. This means that one person is not authorized to download and remove classified files on, for example, a thumb drive.

SCI/SAP file transfers are only allowed to be conducted by a designated “transfer agent” (with a courier card or letter of designation). In short, not just any random person with a clearance is authorized to transfer files. All IT systems have the ability to write to removable media function disabled as a default setting; a privileged person (like a sysadmin) has to manually enable the function. These manual actions are automatically audited (meaning, any attempt to use removable media is KNOWN). The authorized transfer agents cannot have admin privileges on the systems which they will be writing to removable media. It takes a sysadmin/security person to enable the file transfer function and the authorized transfer agent to download a classified file to removable media. One person can’t do it, and everyone who operates these systems is trained on downloading procedures.

An Original Classification Authority is a government person who has authorization to classify newly developed information up to Top Secret level. There are very few of these in the federal government. Hillary Clinton was an OCA in the State Department. Think about that! She KNEW what she was doing. The notion that she didn’t know what was classified was a bald-faced lie.

Everyone who accesses TS/SCI, TS/SAP, and other classified info receives training in all of the above procedures and information BEFORE personally signing the NDA acknowledging the penalties for violation of the laws governing classified information. And an OCA receives specialized training in how to classify information. That infamous statement that she didn’t know what a “C” meant was yet another one of her many lies as she tried to squirm off the hook.

To summarize: there are strict rules for handling classified info, in particular for copying & transferring files. Two people must be involved in copying/transferring TS/SCI and/or SAP info. Everyone receives training and must sign an NDA. This would include Hillary Clinton and her immediate staff who accessed TS/SCI and/or SAP info. The rules and penalties are clear to all!

She clearly violated Title 18 USC – Espionage, the penalty for which includes a $10,000 fine for EACH offense and up to life imprisonment without parole (again, PARTICULARLY NOTE the “for each offense” part!). In my estimation, this clearly qualified her as a “domestic enemy”! And she and her staffers who were involved with that email server violated Sections 793, 794, 790, and 952 of Title 18 USC, Section 783(b) of Title 60 USC, and EO 12356. That she and they remain free and have not been indicted yet is a travesty of justice. Those who helped let her and them off the hook are guilty of misprision and obstruction of justice. These crimes CANNOT and WILL NOT be forgotten. It is long past time that this domestic enemy – as well as all her many enablers over the years – saw the inside of a jail cell!

The end.

Jan Brewer: Media Treated Me Much Differently than Pelosi When I Pointed a Finger at a President

Social Media Politics North Carolina Nancy Pelosi Media journalism jan brewer Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Culture Congress CNN California Arizona Allow Media Exception

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announces that she will not seek a third term and will retire at the end of her current term, Wednesday, March 12, 2014, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Matt York)

After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday that President Trump had had a “meltdown” in the middle of a bipartisan meeting on the Syria issue, Trump took to the Twitter machine in an effort to try and prove it was Pelosi and not him who had the meltdown.

Here’s what he tweeted:

Instead of backing down, Pelosi’s staff made the picture he tweeted the header image on her Twitter page:

The media have unquestionably been swooning over the photo ever since. As Newsbusters’ Nicholas Fondacaro notes, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and Lester Holt were among the many who were in awe of the supposed symbolism of the image:

Anchor Lester Holt began by touting the image himself. “It was during a contentious White House meeting about the Syria conflict that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood up in front of President Trump. The photo instantly becoming a new and powerful symbol of their power struggle,” he said.

Mitchell, a well-documented fangirl of the Clintons, proclaimed the picture was “iconic” and boasted about how it was “released by the White House to diminish the Speaker, she immediately turned it into a badge of courage and her cover photo.”

CNN’s Dana Bash was another who was couldn’t help but gush over the photo, and how Pelosi and her staff “owned” the moment where she “[stood up] … at a table of all men” against Trump:

“Can we do just one more beat on that photo?” Bash asked as the image was onscreen. “Until now, what her staff owned, and what has made her kind of iconic among the Democratic base and even beyond that, is that picture walking out of the White House and putting her sunglasses on. I mean, this makes that look like, you know, not even at all symbolic.”

“I mean, look at that photo of one woman standing up and, you know, giving it to the president of the United States at a table of all men there. I mean, of course she’s going to own that.”

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, had a much more different take, noting that when she was photographed pointing a finger at President Obama in 2012, she was treated much differently by the mainstream media:

She’s right. Many media outlets either took a questioning or hostile tone over the image, or showed complete indifference – unlike how the Pelosi picture has been treated.

NBC’s Brian Williams wondered “”Who have you ever seen talking to the President like this?”

NPR headline: Arizona Gov. Brewer Says She ‘Was Not Hostile’ In Meeting With Obama

“Finger-wagging Arizona governor says Obama was the disrespectful one”, wrote the Mercury News.

MSNBC had a poll up on their website that asked the question “Should Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer apologize for pointing her finger in President Obama’s face?”

The Root’s headline on their version of the story was: Arizona Gov Points Finger at Obama in Nasty Face-Off.

The media weren’t the only ones who frowned over Brewer’s actions:

Brewer took flak for her finger-pointing from both the media and the public, who accused her of disrespecting the presidency. More than 12,000 letters flooded her office in the ensuing days, most of which condemned her, calling her “trashy” and “tasteless.” Likening the act to belching at the president, a writer for the Washington Post scolded her, “If a thing is frowned upon in general, it’s even worse to do it to the president in particular.”

But I was told the media “don’t root for a side” or anything:

I am so confused.

Durham Has Mifsud’s Blackberrys And Flynn Attorney Wants The Data

Westlake Legal Group John_Durham_crop-620x829 Durham Has Mifsud’s Blackberrys And Flynn Attorney Wants The Data spies Russia Collusion Investigation Russia Mifsud Front Page Stories flynn Featured Story Durham donald trump democrats corruption collusion Abuse of Power

A new twist in the investigation of the origins of the Russia probe came Monday from one of retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s attorneys when she disclosed in a court motion the existence of two Blackberry phones used by Joseph Mifsud that were tied to Western intelligence.

On Thursday, that same attorney, Sidney Powell, confirmed to the Washington Times, that the Blackberrys lie in the hands of U.S. Attorney John Durham — AG Barr’s pick to investigate the Russia probe origins.

Powell seems to be seeking the Blackberrys as exculpatory evidence in Flynn’s case, showing that the government withheld such evidence early on in violation of a judge’s demand.

Ms. Powell has added to the Mifsud intrigue with her motion before District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan asking him to order the government to turn over the BlackBerrys’ data. The filing lists the two phones’ model number, PIN and SIM card information.

She told the judge that on Oct. 11 she asked the prosecution for phone data. She was ignored until she sent notification days later that she planned to file the discovery motion.

The motion says: “Michael T. Flynn requests the government be ordered to produce evidence that has only recently come into its possession……… This information is material, exculpatory, and relevant to the defense of Mr. Flynn, and specifically to the “OCONUS LURES” and agents that western intelligence tasked against him likely as early as 2014 to arrange—unbeknownst to him—‘connections’ with certain Russians that they would then use against him in their false claims. The phones were used by Mr. Joseph Mifsud.”

“OCONUS LURES” is an FBI acronym for an operation to lure a person back to the U.S.

Mifsud, a Maltese professor who reportedly told Trump advisor George Papadopoulos that the Russians were in possession of Hillary Clinton’s emails, was thought to have possibly been visited by Durham and Barr recently in Rome, Italy, where he was a professor. The FBI has accused Mifsud of being a Russian asset. Papadopoulos, however, contends the professor was a Western asset whose goal was to trap him with information about Clinton’s emails, which ultimately reached the FBI and is the ostensible reason for the opening of the Russian collusion investigation.

Reacting to the BlackBerry disclosure, Mr. Papadopoulos tweeted: “I lived this spy story. The government’s of the UK, Australia, Italy sent their agents: Mifsud, Downer, Halper, Azra Turk and many more. With the new info on Mifsud’s phones with the DOJ, my story was the one that exposed the greatest spying scandal in history. Downer is next!”

Alexander Downer was the Australian ambassador in London to whom Mr. Papadopoulos relayed the Mifsud gossip. Mr. Downer denies he was a spy. Stephan Halper and Azar Turk were FBI/western intelligence spies assigned to Mr. Papadopoulos in London.

The request for the data contained on the Blackberrys is a possible link between the investigation into the origins of the Russia probe and the Flynn appeal. Flynn, who was the Obama administration’s head of the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency until forced to retire retire over differences related to fighting Islamic extremists, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI regarding conversations with the Russian ambassador when he served as Trump’s national security advisor early in 2017.

In March, I wrote a post in which I asked, “What is the connection between James Clapper, Victor Pinchuk, and the chief technology officer of CrowdStrike, which was the only company the DNC allowed to access their server?” This post jumped into my head the moment I saw a Breitbart article reporting that one of Adam Schiff’s staffers had met with diplomat William Taylor on a trip to Ukraine which was organized by The Atlantic Council. I had written:

Ukrainian billionaire and longtime contributor to the Clinton Foundation Victor Pinchuk, was doing his best to promote a Clinton victory. Pinchuk serves on the International Advisory Board of a Washington-based think tank called the Atlantic Council. This group is “connected to Ukrainian interests through its “Ukraine in Europe Initiative,” which is designed to galvanize international support for an independent Ukraine within secure borders whose people will determine their own future.”

Also serving on the International Advisory Board of the Atlantic Council is James Clapper, who served as Obama’s Director of National Intelligence.

Funnily enough, [Dan] Bongino discovered that the Chief Technology Officer of “the only company that investigated the hacking of the DNC’s servers and quickly determined it was the Russians, is a nonresident senior fellow in cybersecurity” at the Atlantic Council. His name is Dmitri Alperovitch.

Please keep this in mind as you read this post.

The Atlantic Council is a super liberal think-tank which receives much of its funding from Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian natural gas company where Hunter Biden had served as a board member.

Breitbart’s Aaron Klein obtained a copy of travel documents which showed that, twelve days after the “whistleblower” submitted his complaint to the Intelligence Community Inspector General, one of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s staffers, Thomas Eager, held a meeting with acting U.S. ambassador (or Charge d’Affaires) to Ukraine William Taylor. The two were on a trip to Ukraine which had been organized by The Atlantic Council. It was “billed as a bipartisan Ukraine Study Trip in which ten Congressional staffers participated.”

Eager is a member of The Atlantic Council and Taylor has a “close relationship” with the organization as well.

Klein writes that Schiff’s office has refused to respond to any of Breitbart’s questions or comment requests. Specifically, Breitbart had asked, “While in Ukraine, did Mr. Eager speak to Mr. Taylor about the issue of reports about any representatives of President Trump looking into alleged Biden corruption in Ukraine?”

The trip took place between August 24 and August 31. The “whistleblower” filed his complaint on August 12. Last week, we learned that Schiff had lied when he told MSNBC on September 17, “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to.” Via the New York Times, we found out that one of Schiff’s staffers had been approached by the whistleblower before he filed his complaint and shared this information with Schiff.

Following is one of the text message exchanges between Taylor and U.S. ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland. It shows Taylor’s obvious bias against President Trump, so naturally Schiff has made him a key witness in his impeachment inquiry over Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Taylor is scheduled to provide a deposition next week.

NBC News’ reported that Taylor will be “represented during the deposition by attorney John Bellinger, a prominent “Never Trump” Republican who served in the George W. Bush administration.”

Here is one of the exchanges. (Via NPR)

On September 9th, Taylor wrote: “I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign.”

Sondland responds: “Bill, I believe you are incorrect about President Trump’s intentions. The President has been crystal clear no quid pro quo’s of any kind.”

Sondland adds, “I suggest we stop the back and forth by text.”)

To give you an idea of how deeply involved, and therefore how “anti-Trump” Taylor is, I am including the details from Klein’s article. He does go into the weeds, but it explains how interconnected, almost incestuous, all of these players are. I recommend at least a quick scan of his findings.

When we see how extensive the network’s tentacles go, we begin to understand how they were able to carry out their plot against President Trump and to avoid detection for so long. All of the actors cover for and facilitate each other. We also realize that Ukraine has been the common denominator for a large part of the conspiracy to take down the Trump administration.

Former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, whose prepared opening statement to the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry team was leaked to the press last week, said she was recalled based on “unfounded and false claims.” I found a major lie in her testimony. She had written, “As Mr. Lutsenko, the former Ukrainian Prosecutor General has recently acknowledged, the notion that I created or disseminated a “do not prosecute” list is completely false—a story that Mr. Lutsenko, himself, has since retracted.” The reality is that Lutsenko has done no such thing. I posted about this here. And you can bet this was not her only lie. She is likely up to her eyeballs in wrongdoing.

The left has perpetrated such a major fraud which has involved so many, I don’t see how it could not leave a paper trail. The bigger an operation becomes, the more difficult it is to contain. Each additional participant adds to the risk of exposure. And in an operation as vast and far-reaching as this one, someone is going to slip up.

I have confidence that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham have already found or will find the evidence necessary to blow this giant ambush of the U.S. President wide open.

Taylor and The Atlantic Council

Taylor has authored numerous analysis pieces published by the Atlantic Council.

In March, three months before he became Trump’s ambassador to Ukraine, the Atlantic Council featured an oped co-authored by Taylor in which the diplomat argued Ukraine “has further to travel toward its self-proclaimed European goal” of reformation.

In 2017, Taylor wrote a piece for the Council about a Ukrainian parliament vote on health care reform.

In November 2011, the Atlantic Council hosted Taylor as the featured speaker at a discussion event when he was appointed that year as Special Coordinator for Middle East Transitions at the State Department.

When he deployed to Ukraine as Trump’s ambassador in June, the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC), which has co-hosted events with the Atlantic Council, authored a piece in the Kyiv Post welcoming him.

Taylor for the last nine years served as a senior adviser to the USUBC.

The USUBC’s piece noted that the “USUBC has worked closely with Ambassador Taylor for many years,” touting his role as the business group’s senior adviser.

On June 26, just nine days after arriving in Ukraine as ambassador, the USUBC already hosted Taylor for a roundtable discussion about his new position.

Vadym Pozharskyi, adviser to the board of directors at Burisma Holdings, was also previously hosted as a USUBC featured speaker.

A USUBC senior adviser is David J. Kramer, a long-time adviser to late Senator John McCain, who served at the McCain Institute for International Leadership as senior director for human rights and democracy. Kramer played a central role in disseminating the anti-Trump dossier.

In the USUBC piece welcoming Taylor to Ukraine, Kramer himself commented about Taylor’s ambassador position.

“He’s a great choice for now,” Kramer gushed.

Geysha Gonzalez is the sponsoring Atlantic Council officer listed on the Congressional disclosure form for Schiff staffer Eager’s trip to Ukraine. She is deputy director of the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center.

Gonzalez is also one of eleven members of the rapid response team for the Ukrainian Election Task Force, which says it is working to expose “foreign interference in Ukraine’s democracy.”

Another member of the team is Kramer.

Kramer revealed in testimony that he held a meeting about the anti-Trump dossier with a reporter from BuzzFeed News, who he says snapped photos of the controversial document without Kramer’s permission when he left the room to go to the bathroom. That meeting was held at the McCain Institute office in Washington, Kramer stated.

BuzzFeed infamously published the Christopher Steele dossier on January 10, 2017, setting off a firestorm of news media coverage about the document.

The Washington Post reported last February that Kramer received the dossier directly from Fusion GPS after McCain expressed interest in it.

In a deposition taken on December 13, 2017, and posted online earlier this year, Kramer revealed that he met with two Obama administration officials to inquire about whether the anti-Trump dossier was being taken seriously.

In one case, Kramer said that he personally provided a copy of the dossier to Obama National Security Council official Celeste Wallander.

In the deposition, Kramer said that McCain specifically asked him in early December 2016 to meet about the dossier with Wallander and Victoria Nuland, a senior official in John Kerry’s State Department.

Schiff signed form

Schiff’s signature appears on the required post-travel disclosure form filed with the House Committee on Ethics documenting the visit to Ukraine. The form signed by Schiff says that Eager’s trip to Ukraine was paid for by the “Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center.”

The form bearing Schiff’s signature (above) describes the visit thusly:

Series of meetings and visits with gov’t officials, party officials, civil society and private sector reps in Ukraine to learn about ongoing political and military issues, including conflict in the East.

The costs for Eager’s visit listed on the form are $2202.91 for transportation, $985.50 for lodging, and $630.15 for meal expenses.

Speaking to Breitbart News, Gonzalez confirmed that Eager started his one-year fellowship with the organization in January and that Eager is still a fellow.

Gonzalez said the pre-planned trip was part of the fellowship program, which also includes a full year of round tables and other educational events. She said it was not within her portfolio to comment on issues of funding from Burisma or other donors.

Burisma and Atlantic Council

Besides funding the Atlantic Council, Burisma also routinely partners with the think tank.

Only four months ago, the company co-hosted the Council’s second Annual Kharkiv Security Conference.

Burisma further co-hosted a U.S.-Ukraine Business Council event with the Council last year in Washington, DC. David Kramer of the dossier episode is a senior adviser to the Business Council.

Burisma and the Atlantic Council also signed a cooperative agreement to develop transatlantic programs with Burisma’s financial support, reportedly to focus “on European and international energy security.”

Burisma advertises that it committed itself to “15 key principles of rule of law and economic policy in Ukraine developed by the Atlantic Council.”

Common funding themes

Besides Burisma funding, the Atlantic Council is also financed by billionaire activist George Soros’s Open Society Foundations, Google, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Inc., and the U.S. State Department.

Google, Soros’s Open Society Foundations, the Rockefeller Fund, and an agency of the State Department each also finance a self-described investigative journalism organization repeatedly referenced as a source of information in the so-called “whistleblower’s” complaint alleging Trump was “using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country” in the 2020 presidential race.

The charges in the July 22 report referenced in the “whistleblower’s” document and released by the Google and Soros-funded organization, the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), seem to be the public precursors for a lot of the so-called “whistleblower’s” own claims, as Breitbart News documented.

One key section of the so-called “whistleblower’s” document claims that “multiple U.S. officials told me that Mr. Giuliani had reportedly privately reached out to a variety of other Zelensky advisers, including Chief of Staff Andriy Bohdan and Acting Chairman of the Security Service of Ukraine Ivan Bakanov.”

This was allegedly to follow up on Trump’s call with Zelensky in order to discuss the “cases” mentioned in that call, according to the so-called “whistleblower’s” narrative. The complainer was clearly referencing Trump’s request for Ukraine to investigate the Biden corruption allegations.

Even though the statement was written in first person – “multiple U.S. officials told me” – it contains a footnote referencing a report by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP).

That footnote reads:

In a report published by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) on 22 July, two associates of Mr. Giuliani reportedly traveled to Kyiv in May 2019 and met with Mr. Bakanov and another close Zelensky adviser, Mr. Serhiy Shefir.

The so-called “whistleblower’s” account goes on to rely upon that same OCCRP report on three more occasions. It does so to:

Write that Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko “also stated that he wished to communicate directly with Attorney General Barr on these matters.”

Document that Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani “had spoken in late 2018 to former Prosecutor General Shokin, in a Skype call arranged by two associates of Mr. Giuliani.”

Bolster the charge that, “I also learned from a U.S. official that ‘associates’ of Mr. Giuliani were trying to make contact with the incoming Zelenskyy team.” The so-called “whistleblower” then relates in another footnote, “I do not know whether these associates of Mr. Giuliani were the same individuals named in the 22 July report by OCCRP, referenced above.”

The OCCRP report repeatedly referenced is actually a “joint investigation by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and BuzzFeed News, based on interviews and court and business records in the United States and Ukraine.”

BuzzFeed infamously also first published the full anti-Trump dossier alleging unsubstantiated collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia. The dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and was produced by the Fusion GPS opposition dirt outfit.

The OCCRP and BuzzFeed “joint investigation” resulted in both OCCRP and BuzzFeed publishing similar lengthy pieces on July 22 claiming that Giuliani was attempting to use connections to have Ukraine investigate Trump’s political rivals.

The so-called “whistleblower’s” document, however, only mentions the largely unknown OCCRP and does not reference BuzzFeed, which has faced scrutiny over its reporting on the Russia collusion claims.

CNN Video: Hopefully, Trump Dies Soon

Westlake Legal Group CNN-Text-Message-Alerts-e1490239895385 CNN Video: Hopefully, Trump Dies Soon project veritas media bias Media impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress CNN Allow Media Exception

We brought you the story about how Project Veritas had videos from Cary Poarch, a man who was a contract employee with CNN. He took some pretty eye-opening video because he says he was upset about how CNN approached the news and he wanted people to return to reporting the facts, letting the people decide what to think about them.

Among the things the videos revealed was that their president Jeff Zucker directed CNN staffers to put all their focus into concentrating on impeachment.

They proved this, even putting out an ad that sounded like it was cheering on an impeachment inquiry, despite the fact that there hasn’t been a formal vote for an inquiry by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and she said yesterday that she doesn’t think there is a need for one yet.

But now Project Veritas has released even more video. And the attacks on President Donald Trump are even more pointed and disgusting. CNN employees talk about how they used to do news, but now, all it is, all the time is about getting Trump.

Townhall summarized some more of the comment that Project Veritas got.

Patrick Davis, Manager of Field Operations at CNN: “…I hate seeing what we were and what we could be and what we’ve become. It’s just awful…I mean, we could be so much better than what we are…And the buck stops with him (Zucker).”
[…]
Scott Garber, Senior Field Engineer at CNN: “We used to cover news. We used to go out and do stories…But Trump is more important.”
Adia Jacobs, CNN Technical Operations Supervisor: “When Zucker took over it wasn’t until Trump that we ended up being all Trump all the time.”
Nick Neville, CNN Media Coordinator: “He (Zucker) basically said f**k all the other stories.”
Mike Brevna, Floor Manager at CNN:“It’s the Trump Network, dog. It’s like everything is all Trump…they not even thinking about anybody else. They sold themselves to the devil.”

Perhaps one of the worst videos was that of Gerald Sisnette, a Field Production Supervisor, who said that he thought it would only get better when Trump was dead, which he hoped was soon. “This is a story that’s not gonna go away,” Sisnette said, referring to Trump coverage in general. “The only way this will go away is when he dies. Hopefully, soon.”

As James O’Keefe who heads up Project Veritas noted, Twitter even put a sensitive material warning on it.

O’Keefe queried CNN whether or not they condemned such comments.

But as Townhall notes, folks on the left have been so broken by Trump they’ve completely lost all sense of proper journalism. Not taking any bets that this will wake them up soon.

A Sensible Alternative Health Care Plan to Medicare For All Is Being Discussed

Westlake Legal Group healthcare-300x200 A Sensible Alternative Health Care Plan to Medicare For All Is Being Discussed white house washington D.C. Steve Forbes Social Media republicans President Trump Politico Morning Briefing Media Healthcare for You Health Care Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress Business & Economy biden Bernie Sanders Bernard Marcus Barack Obama Allow Media Exception 2019

A long time ago ( not really that long) in a country called the United States of America, a President and a Congress forced their fellow countryman into a plan called “Obamacare” that promised to lower costs and that you could keep your doctor.

That did not work out so well. In fact, the party that voted for that lost the majority in both chambers and a thing called the TEA PARTY REVOLUTION was born to roll that and other large government programs back.

Nine years later we still have Obamacare and healthcare is merely a talking point for the Republicans while the Democrats running for President push a thing called “Medicare For All” and take the issue back that they originally screwed up.

Well now a conservative group wants to reignite the discussion with less government is a better approach and they are launching an ad called Healthcare for You.

According to Real Clear Politics

With the presidential election year fast approaching, health care regularly ranks as one of the top issues for voters, and Republicans seem unprepared to create a contrast with their competition. Enter billionaire Bernard Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot and personal friend of Trump.

Marcus has funded a survey of more than 20,000 patients and doctors, other health care providers and small-business owners to develop a framework for a plan that his network hopes congressional and administration Republicans will adopt in time for the election. A product of the conservative Job Creators Network and Physicians for Reform, the blueprint is touted as a personalized plan to compete with Obamacare and Medicare for All.

They call it “Healthcare for You,” and they plan to spend a quarter-million dollars just rolling it out. The first television ad drops Thursday on the heels of the latest Democratic primary debate.

This has to be a multifaceted approach and I like that they will run features a spot of comic telling jokes about healthcare because it is a JOKE ( although not a funny one) what the very people who hoisted Obamacare on us. They broke it and now they want ot tell us how to fix what they broke.

If we needed to overhaul the whole system to kids could stay on their parents’ health care until 27 something is wrong with us.

Some of the proposal’s ideas include…

Changing the way health insurance is bought and sold and regulated by allowing patients to purchase coverage across state lines while giving states more regulatory power.

Lowering drug prices by targeting exemptions that currently allow pharmaceutical middlemen to skirt federal anti-kickback laws.

Creating personal health management accounts, akin to existing health savings accounts, to allow patients to pay for insurance premiums or care with pre-tax dollars.

Targeting medical malpractice laws to better protect physicians from frivolous lawsuits and excessive awards.

Maintaining protections for pre-existing conditions.

This is a good start and I’m happy that someone with a track record of success. Bernard Marcus is helping with this and Forbes CEO, Steve Forbes even tweeted his support earlier today.

The Democrats lied to the American people when they passed Obamacare in 2009 and the Republicans never had the will to overhaul it like the Dems did to pass it. This issue has been lingering on the back burner and it is long past time for conservatives to start having an open discussion on how to improve the system we have instead of the government overhaul the Dems are talking about.

Now is the time and whether or not you like Donald Trump, he just might be the guy to do the overhaul if given the chance.
