Joe Biden’s Campaign Spokesman Gets Caught Manufacturing a Trump Quote To Cover a Joe Biden Lie

Westlake Legal Group befuddled-biden-620x317 Joe Biden’s Campaign Spokesman Gets Caught Manufacturing a Trump Quote To Cover a Joe Biden Lie Politics Joel Pollack Joe Biden Iowa Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats charlottesville Breitbart bill russo big lie Allow Media Exception

Yesterday, Joe Biden, who, charitably, is not at the peak of his mental powers right now (see Joe Biden Tells Supporters Poor Kids Are As Bright And Talented As White Kids and Joe Biden’s Hypocrisy About His Own Troubling History of White Supremacy Resurfaces) was on the hustings at the Iowa State Fair.

At some point, while accusing President Trump of riling up white supremacists, Joe Biden repeated a calumny that has become a staple his campaign. He claimed that President Trump, in the aftermath of Charlottesville, said the white supremacists marching were “fine people.” Joel Pollak, host of “Breitbart News Tonight” on Sirius XM radio, confronted Biden and accused him of misquoting Trump. Biden blew out his hairplugs

BTW, my lord, Biden looks ancient and decrepit.

And many of the sunflower left (a close friend of mine uses “sunflower” to describe people who barely have enough brainpower to move their heads in the direction of the sun) thought this was great.

The assclown whose sad duty it is to tell lies to cover Biden’s mental deficiencies, some guy named Bill Russo, responded to the allegation that Biden was lying with, you guessed it, a lie. He sent a doctored transcript.

Think about this. He sent a doctored transcript, in writing, to a news organization to prove his point.

The whole story of what Trump said has been covered over and over and over. And much like the Russian collusion hoax can’t be snuffed out by facts, neither can this lie. This is the actual transcript:

TRUMP: Excuse me, excuse me. (inaudible) themselves (inaudible) and you have some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me — I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.

(CROSSTALK)

QUESTION: George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same (inaudible)…

(CROSSTALK)

TRUMP: George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So, will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down — excuse me — are we going to take down — are we going to take down statues to George Washington?

(CROSSTALK)

TRUMP: How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him?

(CROSSTALK)

TRUMP: OK. Good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we going to take down his statue? So you know what? It’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people, and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats. You’ve got — you had a lot of bad — you had a lot of bad people in the other group…

The claim made by Joe Biden is a lie. It is understandable because Biden has always been a fabulist an now he’s not firing on all four cylinders. The guy is obviously well past his “use by” date. So the polite thing to do is to nod and keep a straight face as he spins his yarns.

His campaign manager is simply an egregious liar. He went to the trouble of either doctoring a transcript or having a staffer doctor one and then he thought he was so smart that no one else would bother to actually read it. That they’d just look at his claim on Twitter and say, “oh, you’re right.”

The fortunate thing for the country is that Biden and this clown will never get anywhere near the White House. The unfortunate thing is that Biden will not be around in the general election to get beaten like a rented mule.

The 10 Stages of Genocide: A Social Media Marvel Provides a Window into America’s Growing Mental Disorder

Uncategorized racism murder Media Insanity Hysteria genocide Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Culture Allow Media Exception

 

 

Has the country gone insane? Judging by social media entries, concerning a portion, it’s not too difficult to imagine the answer being Yes.

As the election neared in 2016, absurd statements by those fighting to preserve Democratic power increasingly polluted the airwaves. The dumbest, most extreme claims were flung, like a the contents of a dirty diaper steadied by a stretched-to-capacity slingshot.

SPLAT!

It was everywhere.

The result, in part, was alarmists on Facebook and elsewhere hammering the bell:

“If Donald Trump is elected, black people will be hanging from trees on the White House lawn!”

That was an actual post.

People were told Trump was essentially a reproductive miracle: Somehow, Hitler and Lucifer had engaged in sexual congress. And in 1946, out of one of their vaginas, out hatched a bouncing baby boy.

What many, many millennials didn’t know, however, was that — despite the media’s claims — Donald Trump wasn’t a reality TV star who’d run for President; he was America’s most famed and embraced billionaire, whose notoriety as a successful mogul had resulted in NBC asking him to appear on its show. Despite allegations, he wasn’t a failed businessman (people have actually said this); he’d taken a small fortune and created a worldwide empire. Despite charges of him being the Angel of Death, he’d been — for years — loved by Hollywood and Democrats and praised in rap songs.

Despite reality, however, the lobbed missive to morons was clear: Terror is upon us.

The same had happened, though to a much lesser degree, with George W. Bush. So far as I can tell, that’s when the plummet of not only ignorance, but breathtaking immaturity began.

During that era, to many of those evidently spoiled by the time in which they lived, the high stakes of life were completely lost. Seemingly gone was any concept of actual evil, suffering, or persecution.

Hatchbacks donned bumper stickers with Bush wearing horns. T-shirts portrayed W. as Hitler.

And for clueless Saviors of the Cities, reason was not an option.

“George Bush is Adolf!”

“George W. Bush is nothing like Adolf Hitler. You’re not understanding what Hitler did. Hitler murdered people.”

“George Bush murders people!”

“No, dummy. You’re saying that because he supports military action in the Middle East, and in battle, people are killed. But I mean Hitler literally ordered the deaths of people.”

“George Bush orders the deaths of people!”

“No, dummy. You’re saying he endorses policies you’ve heard negatively affect the poor, which you believe results in casualties down the line. But I’m saying that Hitler quite literally gave the order for specific groups of people to be murdered en masse.”

“George Bush gives the order for specific groups to be murdered en masse!”

“No, dummy. You’re saying he has political leanings that — as you understand it — disadvantage the lower class, which is comprised by a considerable percentage of racial minorities. But I’m saying that Hitler, in the most direct manner possible, spoke to his henchmen and gave the Go-Ahead for people to be rounded up and slaughtered.”

“George Bush speaks to his henchmen and gives the Go-Ahead for people to be rounded up and slaughtered!”

“No, dummy. You’re talking about your views on his Cabinet and prison reform. But Hitler chose to literally have millions of people killed simply because of their genetic background.”

“George Bush chooses to literally have millions of people killed simply because–”

“Ooooookay. Uncle uncle uncle!”

They couldn’t grasp the higher stakes. The forcefield of fierce immaturity is a mighty foe indeed.

And the same is true today.

There currently exists a group of people who are living out, in their imaginations, the worst the world has to offer.

Some in the media are dishing out idiotic ideas, and the craziest among us are swallowing them like so many flies.

RIBBIT!

Consider a post making the rounds on social media as of late:

10 Stages of Genocide

1. Classification: People are divided into “us and them.”
2. Symbolization: People are forced to identify themselves.
3. Discrimination: People begin to face systematic discrimination.
4. Dehumanization: People equated with animals, vermin, or diseases.
5. Organization: The government creates special groups (police/military) to enforce the policies.
6. Polarization: The government broadcasts propaganda to turn the populace against the group.
7. Preparation: Official action to remove/relocate people begins.
8. Persecution: Beginning of murders, theft of property, trial massacres.
9. Extermination: Wholesale elimination of the group. It is “extermination” and not murder because the people are not considered human.
10. Denial: The government denies that it has committed any crime.

Incredibly, the meme draws an arrow between Preparation and Persecution with the note “You are here.”

Literally none of those things have happened. But the far Left have tried to convince people otherwise. In fact, with regard to some of their most incendiary claims, the federal actions at issue were engaged by Obama. In some cases, they were begun under Barack.

But goobers gotta goob.

Apparently, the sharers of such hysteria aren’t familiar with the real History of the United States. Witness:



What’s more, not only has nothing on the list occurred, but it can’t — because America doesn’t have a “Government” — not in the way the meme references.

We have a system of checks and balances provided by three separate branches, comprised by people who all disagree with one another. And the Executive Branch has a 2-term lmit.

The whole idea of the meme is an ode to psychosis. Yet, here we are.

We’re livin’ in the Age of the Slingshot.

Or slingsh*t.

SPLAT!!!!

It’s Starting: Targets of Rep. Joaquin Castro’s Doxxing Efforts Receive Harassing Phone Calls and Threats

Joaquin Castro’s Doxxing Efforts Receive Harassing Phone Calls and Threats Texas Social Media Politics North Carolina Julian Castro Joaquin Castro Front Page Stories Front Page First Amendment Featured Story Featured Post Doxxing democrats Culture Congress Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020

In the aftermath of Rep. Joaquin Castro’s (D-TX) decision to post the private information of Trump donors in his Congressional district who donated the maximum amount to President Trump’s reelection campaign, he has pushed back on claims from his Republican critics who said the list puts people in danger of harassment and violence:

In spite of Castro saying his list wasn’t intended to put anyone in danger, he and his supporters have continued to try and class Twitter up by equating Trump backers to mass murderers:

Fortunately, some are weathering the storm. But as even a 5-year-old could have predicted, the harassing phone calls and threats have started to roll in for some of Castro’s donor targets.

Listen to the vicious, threatening voice mail left for one woman who was on Castro’s list:

Per the New York Times, the owner of Precision Pipe Rentals has also been harassed:

For many businesses, a sudden deluge of phone calls might signal an influx of new customers. But most of the 25 calls Justin Herricks received before noon on Thursday were from people who wanted to tell him he was a white supremacist for donating money to President Trump.

“I’ve had people say, ‘Hey, we were going to use you for business, but we found out you’re a racist,’” Mr. Herricks, the owner of Precision Pipe Rentals, an oil and gas services company in San Antonio, said in an interview. “‘We hope that you burn in hell and your business will go with you.’”

And another man who was wrongly outed has had to advise his family members to “stay close to home”:

Harper Huddleston said on “Fox & Friends” that his name appeared on Castro’s list instead of the name of his retired father, who contributed to the Trump campaign. He said the mix-up was because they share the same first name, but have different middle names, though his father does not go by the name Harper.

Huddleston said he supports Trump and has contributed in the past to the mayoral campaign of Castro’s brother, Julian, who is now running for president. He said he was glad to have received the negative attention instead of his father, but explained that he was forced to go over emergency plans with his wife and three children.

“We convened together as a family and talked about situational awareness, exit strategy, avoiding and exiting conflict, talked about staying low and close to home and just being at our very highest senses,” said Huddleston.

Castro, who is the chairman of his brother Julián’s presidential campaign, absurdly told MSNBC earlier this week that his intention was not for any harm to come to anyone who was on the list:

“Congressman, as you look at this list — and you even put their addresses out there. It’s easy to find them,” [co-host Willie] Geist said. “These people are undoubtedly already being harassed online or perhaps face to face in some cases, they could be.”

“What do you say to those people this morning when you say, ‘I made a campaign donation and now I’m going to be harassed? I’m going to have people protesting outside my business or perhaps even my home?’ What do you say to them? Do you want them to repent for their support of President Trump or what do you want from them?”

Castro said he does not want anyone “harassed or targeted” over the donations, but Geist quickly said “they will be because you put their names in public.”

“That was not my intention,” Castro replied. “These things are public. No, what I want is for people to think twice about supporting a guy who is fueling hate in this country.”

He can deny it all he wants to, but he knows exactly what he’s doing. In fact, after his stunt on Monday, it was revealed that some of the people on the list had previously donated to past political campaigns of both Castro brothers, suggesting Joaquin Castro had a revenge motivation for publishing the list.

Castro’s despicable doxxing tactics have inspired liberals in other parts of the country to do their part as well, including in Michigan and here in North Carolina. Unfortunately, this isn’t going to be over anytime soon.

President Trump Lashes Out at Hollywood Over Universal’s Violent MAGA-Killer, ‘The Hunt’: It’s Tinseltown That’s Racist

Have you heard of Universal’s upcoming film The Hunt?

Here’s how Fox News sums it up:

The Hunt, which initially was going to be titled Red State vs. Blue State, is billed as a satire that follows wealthy thrill-seekers as they take a private jet to a five-star resort, where they embark on a “deeply rewarding” expedition that involves hunting down and killing “deplorables,” per The Hollywood Reporter.

THR offers a few lines from the screenplay:

“Did anyone see what our ratf***er-in-chief just did?” one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

Here’s a bit more about the flick:

The Hunt stars Betty Gilpin from GLOW and Hilary Swank, representing opposite sides of the political divide. It features guns blazing along with other ultra-violent killings as the elites pick off their prey. The script from (Lost co-creator and showrunner) Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse reviewed by The Hollywood Reporter revolves around third-rail political themes.

Ready to buy your advance tickets?

As much as they’re presumably excited about the new release, Universal’s had some second thoughts since last weekend’s deadly mass shootings (here, here, here, here, and here):

In the wake of a trio of deadly massacres, the studio is evaluating its strategy for the R-rated Blumhouse satire in which elites stalk “deplorables.”

A bit of the negative Twitter response:

On Friday, the rat– I mean, President Trump — chimed in on the controversy, following several ads for the coastal-elites-hunting-MAGA-supporters-like-wild-animals extravaganza being pulled. His message? Hollywood is the racist blight:

“Liberal Hollywood is Racist at the highest level, and with great Anger and Hate! They like to call themselves ‘Elite,’ but they are not Elite. In fact, it is often the people that they so strongly oppose that are actually the Elite. The movie coming out is made in order to inflame and cause chaos. They create their own violence, and then try to blame others. They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!”

Strong words. And yet, not nearly as harsh as those heaped upon the President routinely by those in left-wing power.

But is all the conservative backlash rightful? Watch the trailer and tell me: Who appear to be the villains?



I love movies; they’re one of my favorite things. But it’s not hard to imagine that a story of Republicans and Democrats killing each other may not make a positive contribution to the current climate. It’s not incumbent upon celluloid to save the world, but was this project a good idea? What will the impact be?

I want to hear from you. Let us all know your thoughts.

ICYMI: Brennan’s Role in Russia Collusion Hoax Becomes Clearer (Despite What Appear To Be Multiple Perjuries)

Westlake Legal Group JBrennan-620x349 ICYMI: Brennan’s Role in Russia Collusion Hoax Becomes Clearer (Despite What Appear To Be Multiple Perjuries) Russia collusion John Brennan Harry Reid gang of eight Front Page Stories Featured Story Abuse of Power

The question of who knew the full scope of the Russia collusion hoax has, thus far, remained unanswered. The bit players like Bruce Ohr and Peter Strzok seemed to understand their role in carrying out what Strzok called “the insurance policy”, but surely someone knew what all the disparate moving pieces were doing.

As mentioned, that question is unanswered. But there are candidates, one being former CIA Director John Brennan, who has popped back up again in the news as someone who, even if he turns out to be simply one of the moving pieces in the larger scheme to denigrate the Trump campaign with false allegations of Russia connections, may have perjured himself (again) before Congress nonetheless.

Here’s American Greatness pulling from a July 29 Maria Bartiromo interview with House Oversight member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA):

During an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo Sunday morning, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) suggested that former CIA director John Brennan lied under oath to Congress in May 2017.

In written testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, Brennan claimed that he had briefed each member of the so-called Gang of Eight about “Russian attempts to interfere in the election” between August 11, 2016 and September 6, 2016.

After his meeting with Brennan, Reid fired off a letter to FBI Director James Comey demanding an investigation into “the questions raised” in the Clinton/DNC/Steele dossier.

But Nunes told Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” that he and former Speaker Paul Ryan were never told about the Steele Dossier, which contained allegations about Russian interference and contacts with the Trump campaign.

“The CIA has mostly come clean about its activities during the 2016 election,” Nunes said. “The only one who has questions to answer is John Brennan,” he added. “We now know that John Brennan briefed Harry Reid on the dossier in August of 2016,” Nunes said. “At the same time, he never briefed me or Paul Ryan, who was the Speaker of the House at the time.”

That letter to Comey is, of course, one of the more compelling parts of all this. It was a useful bit of paper trail that would appear to justify an investigation into the Trump campaign and maybe even retroactively justify the (we know now) possibly illegally obtained FISA warrants themselves.

And, if you read the American Greatness piece all the way through, the question is less a timeline question of when Reid and the Gang of Eight were briefed and more a question of what Brennan told Reid. Specifically, if it was different from what he says he told other members of the Gang of Eight.

Here’s what Brennan told Congress:

“Again, in consultation with the White House, I personally briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in the election to congressional leadership,” Brennan wrote. “I provided the same briefing to each Gang of Eight member. Given the highly sensitive nature of what was in what was an active counterintelligence case, involving an ongoing Russian effort, to interfere in our presidential election, the full details of what we knew at the time were shared only with those members of congress; each of whom was accompanied by one senior staff member.”

Why was Harry getting different information and did Brennan lie about it? Nunes seems to be saying he thinks that just might be the case.

Of course, As Victor David Hanson has pointed out, Brennan lying to Congress has become almost par for the course:

In 2011, Brennan, then the country’s chief counterterrorism adviser, had sworn to Congress that scores of drones strikes abroad had not killed a single noncombatant — at a time when both the president and the CIA were both receiving numerous reports of civilian collateral deaths.

In 2014, John Brennan, now as CIA director, lied emphatically that the CIA had not illegally accessed the computers of U.S. Senate staffers who were then exploring a CIA role in torturing detainees. Or as he told Andrea Mitchell: “As far as the allegations of the CIA hacking into Senate computers, nothing could be further from the truth. . . . We wouldn’t do that. I mean, that’s just beyond the, you know, the scope of reason in terms of what we do.” Brennan’s chronic deceptions drew the ire of a number of liberal senators, some of whom echoed the Washington Post’s call for his immediate resignation. After months of prevarications, but only upon release of the CIA inspector general’s report, Brennan apologized to the senators he had deceived.

Brennan, in May 2017, as an ex-CIA director, again almost certainly did not tell the truth to Congress when he testified in answer to Representative Trey Gowdy’s questions that he neither knew who had commissioned the Steele dossier nor had the CIA relied on its contents for any action. Yet both the retired National Security Agency director, Michael Rogers, and the former director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, have conceded that the Steele dossier — along with the knowledge that it was a Clinton-campaign-funded product — most certainly did help shape the Obama’s intelligence communality interagency assessments and actions, often under the urging of Brennan himself.

There are also numerous reports that, despite his denials about knowledge of the dossier, Brennan served as a stealthy conduit to ensure that it was disseminated widely, at least in the sense of meeting in August 2016 with Senator Harry Reid to brief the senator about its unverified contents in hopes that he would pressure the FBI to further its investigations, which Reid did in a call two days later to James Comey.

The blame game continues but at some point the finger will land somewhere and on someone as the puller of  puppet strings. As Brennan’s role comes more into focus, he’s becoming much easier to find behind the curtain.

As it turns out, you just cannot keep Texans away from good BBQ.

On Monday, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX-20) created a firestorm among Republicans after doxxing private citizens in his Congressional district who made the maximum donation to President Trump’s reelection campaign.

Castro then made the results public on his Twitter feed, which instantly made the people on the list targets for harassment and violence. In spite of the intense wave of criticism he has received, Castro, who is the chairman of his brother Julián Castro‘s presidential campaign, tried to justify his actions by saying in so many words that the people who are “funding white supremacy” need to be outed.

The information included the names of the donors and their places of employment/businesses they owned. One of the Texans Castro doxxed was Balous Miller, who owns San Antonio’s Bill Miller Bar-B-Q chain.

While hypocritical concern troll leftists have vowed to boycott Miller’s restaurants, conservatives started lining up in full force to support them, including Gov. Greg Abbott. He posted these pictures to his Twitter feed Tuesday night:

Since that time, other Twitter users have posted photos of the their visits or long drive thru lines at local locations:

It looks to me like the threatened Miller BBQ boycotts, like the Chick-fil-A boycotts, have turned out to be a big ol’ bucket of FAIL.

Alabama Baptist Pastor Confessed to Relationships with Underage Boys – During Sunday Service

Westlake Legal Group mountain-church-3611548_1280-620x413 Alabama Baptist Pastor Confessed to Relationships with Underage Boys – During Sunday Service Uncategorized Sexual Assault religion lighthouse baptist church LGBT john martin homosexuality Front Page Stories florence Featured Story Culture & Faith Culture children angie hamilton Allow Media Exception Alabama

 

 

41-year-old John Martin had a confession to make.

So he did, from the pulpit of his church.

During Sunday service, the Alabama pastor admitted to the congregation of Lighthouse Baptist Church that he’d had an “affair” — with, purportedly, two underage boys.

He’d confessed the activity to his wife prior to telling the church.

John brought his sins to light on June 23rd. He was arrested July 1st on four charges of felony sexual abuse.

The booking came after members of the church contacted authorities.

Before being taken into custody, he’d turned over two guns and checked himself into a psychiatric center.

According to court records, he’d had sexual encounters with one boy at his home and on an out-of-state road trip. He’d also sent explicit texts.

Lauderdale County Assistant District Attorney Angie Hamilton told AL.com there could be much more to the story:

“We have identified several potential victims. We believe other charges are forthcoming.”

Before taking the lead role at the Florence house of worship in 2010, John had worked in other states.

Lighthouse Baptist isn’t exactly a bastion of liberalism: At the time of John’s arrest, the church website (which seems to have been taken down) requested that men “dress in shirts and ties, while [thier] ladies wear modest skirts and dresses.”

As for its position on gay relationships:

“We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex.”

As reported by the New York Daily News, a photo on the site in early July depicted “the pastor with what [appeared] to be his family: his wife, two young daughters and three sons.”

It read, “We are proud to have Pastor Martin and his family with us. Since Pastor Martin came to Lighthouse, we have seen a growth that can only come from God. Pastor and his family would love for you to visit Lighthouse Baptist Church very soon!”



 

John was also a bus driver for Florence City Schools.

From Alabama’s ABC 31:

The accuser claims he was on Martin’s school bus when Martin showed him nude photos of himself with a towel over his body. The victim also stated Martin would text him on various occasions and asked him if he had touched himself that day. The victim said he was always scared to come forward and would freeze up when Martin would touch him.

Court documents revealed that one boy said the sexual contact began when he was 12.

There aren’t many guarantees in life; you never know where your children are safe. But of those mysterious locations, church should be one of the most likely.

At Lighthouse House Baptist Church in Florence Alabama, sadly, that wasn’t the case.

Why Does It Matter So Much That Ohr Maintained Contact With Steele After He Was Fired?

Westlake Legal Group Bruce-Ohr Why Does It Matter So Much That Ohr Maintained Contact With Steele After He Was Fired? Special Counsel Rudy Giuliani nellie ohr Mueller Investigation Lindsey Graham Front Page Stories FISA Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption Dan Bongino Christopher Steele Bruce Ohr Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

 

Bruce Ohr’s FBI 302 reports show us that the State Department, the FBI, Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele, the Hillary Clinton campaign and Bruce and Nellie Ohr were “all involved in a triangulated relationship to get Trump with dirty intelligence.” That is the assessment of investigative reporter John Solomon who has followed this story from the very beginning.

All of these entities played a role in the deception and worked together, both before and after the 2016 election to undermine Donald Trump. None of them worried if they had to bend, or even break, the rules to do their part. I posted about the newly released documents here.

Dan Bongino published a book entitled “Spygate: The Attempted Sabotage of Donald J. Trump” in October 2018 in which he laid out the entire story. As information about this conspiracy comes out, he has been proven correct over and over again.

He appeared on “Fox & Friends” this morning to discuss Ohr’s 302s. Interestingly, much of the communication between Ohr and Steele occurred after Steele had been fired by the FBI? Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Bongino why does it matter so much that the two remained in contact after the firing?

In order to gain a better understanding, Bongino said, “you have to look at this as an information laundering system from the start.”

There was an operation to target the Trump team with information that was factually inaccurate, that he was colluding with the Russians. So, if I was going to target Brian Kilmeade for a robbery he didn’t do and fabricate a story, you have to ask yourself, how would I give that story credibility and teeth?

I would do it by having multiple people talk about the robbery you committed even though you didn’t do it. This is what happened here. You have Christopher Steele as the front…Why was Steele used as a front for the false dossier? Because Steele had been a credible source in the past…in other words, they could present Steele in front of a judge as a legitimate source for false information which made the Brian Kilmeade story sound legit, even though it was made up.

It’s simple, but at it’s most basic level, that’s precisely what happened.

Next, Bongino said something surprising:

Steele may not even have written the dossier. Now we know [from the 302s] that Nellie Ohr may have written part of it. We know that Nellie Ohr wrote a dossier – on Manafort. Which begs the question, if Steele’s name is on the dossier because he’d worked with the FBI in the past and was found credible, did he even write it? If he didn’t, is the lie that much worse that you slapped his name on political information to make it seem legitimate?

Kilmeade points out that Ohr and Steele were communicating through “WhatsApp” (an application which encrypts messages). He brings up a story from last month about Steele had wanted to talk to the FBI. It was reported he was afraid they were planning to throw him under the bus. He asked Bongino to comment.

Bongino brought up his “movie script” theory. Christopher Steele’s name was used on this. And this is what I think he means by being thrown under the bus. On this dossier, information he did not create, Christopher Steele acknowledged on sworn depositions he hadn’t been to Russia during this time period.

What I mean by the “movie script” theory, if you go back to 2007, not 2017, but 2007, there is a Wall Street Journal article written by Glenn Simpson. I encourage you to read that article today and compare it to the dossier. It IS the dossier. It’s the same thing.

(Note: The article is “How Lobbyists Help Ex-Soviets Woo Washington.” It was written by Simpson and his wife, Mary Jacoby, on April 17, 2007.)

They took a movie script from 12 years ago, slapped Christopher Steele’s name on it, changed a few of the names to Donald Trump. The cast of characters, Paul Manafort, Dimytro Firtash, they are all in that article Glenn Simpson wrote, it’s devastating.

Brian Kilmeade didn’t rob a bank. Donald Trump didn’t collude with Russia. The only source is Steele.

That’s interesting Dan, but what does that have to do with Ohr and Steele maintaining contact after Steele was fired?

We knew previously that Steele had leaked to the media as well and that he was the source for Yahoo!News’ Michael Isikoff’s article, published on September 23, 2016, which broke the news of the dossier. (By the way, the FBI used this article to corroborate the dossier in their FISA application. This is called circular reporting.)

At any rate, Steele lied to the FBI about leaking and once the FBI had submitted their application to the FISA Court which was based on the information contained in the dossier, he was fired. Steele’s FBI file indicates he is “not suitable for use.”

Yet, Bruce Ohr is encouraged by the FBI to remain in touch with Steele. Why?

Because there, in footnote 5 at the bottom of page fifteen of the FISA application, signed off on by James Comey, on October 21, 2016, it says Steele’s “reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings” and the FBI has determined him to be “reliable” and was “unaware of any derogatory information pertaining” to their informant.

And Steele knows where all the bones are buried.

Have we reached the point where they all start turning on each other? Christopher Steele was questioned for hours by Durham’s team.

There is so much more information that is known by insiders, lawmakers and other government officials that has not yet been made public. Before closing, I wanted to mention what I heard from two insiders on Thursday night.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani called into the Hannity Show. Giuliani ended his remarks by telling Hannity that no one will believe what’s coming.

Lindsey Graham, whose committee is privy to a great deal of classified information said, “This is the tip of the iceberg. I know personally there’s a lot more out there.”

I take both of those statements to mean that Attorney General William Barr, prosecutor John Durham and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz are on it.

Man Armed With 100 Rounds of Ammo in a Missouri Walmart Stopped by Armed Former Firefighter

The Springfield, MO Walmart gunman. Screen grab via ABC News.

A man police say was armed with 100 rounds of ammunition walked around inside a Springfield, MO Walmart Thursday afternoon filming himself as he pushed a shopping cart while carrying a rifle. Fortunately, he was stopped by an armed former firefighter.

News channel KY3 reports:

Officers booked Dmitriy N. Andreychenko, 20, on suspicion of first-degree making a terroristic threat. Greene County Prosecutor Dan Patterson has yet to file formal charges in the case.

The Springfield Police Department arrived on scene within three minutes of the call. Police stated Andreychenko pulled up to the Walmart, where he donned body armor and military fatigues. Police say the man had tactical weapons.

Police then say Andreychenko walked into the Walmart Neighborhood Market where he grabbed a cart and began pushing it around the store. Police say the man was recording himself walking through the store via a cell phone.

The store manager at the Neighborhood Market pulled a fire alarm, urging people to escape the store.

Police say Andreychenko then made his way out an emergency exit where a former firefighter held the man at gunpoint. At that moment Springfield Police arrived on scene and detained the man.

Watch a video report on what happened via ABC News:

It’s unclear what the gunman’s motives were, but in a February Facebook post, he commented about how he hated Walmart because of their policy on selling guns:

Screen grab via Facebook.

The incident happened just five days after a horrific mass shooting inside an El Paso, TX Walmart that killed 22 people and injured dozens more. In the Springfield incident, thankfully no one was hurt.

Springfield Police Department Lt. Mike Lucas said yesterday that the gunman’s “intent was not to cause comfort or peace to anybody that was in the business here. In fact, he’s lucky to be alive still, to be honest.”

Indeed.

Russia Suffers an Unplanned Nuclear Event at Restricted Naval Base. They Call It Thursday

Westlake Legal Group nuke-620x386 Russia Suffers an Unplanned Nuclear Event at Restricted Naval Base. They Call It Thursday Severodvinsk Russian navy Russia nuclear incident Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception

Welp. I hate it when this happens.

Here are some thoughts on this.

If the Russian government is admitting it happened at this level, the actual level of the danger is exponentially higher.

Taking iodine does diddly for radiation exposure per se. Nothing does anything for radiation exposure. But a placebo is great for population management. During the Yom Kippur War, the Israelis captured Egyptian vehicles with USSR issued “anti-radiation pills.” They were essentially Dramamine and other substances that would block the symptoms of radiation poisoning right up until death.

This kind of slipshod management of conventional, chemical, and nuclear weapons is pretty much the day-in-day-out standard in Russia as it was in the USSR.

The explosion took place at a high priority base of the Russian Navy. This is going to impact readiness, though perhaps not so much as alcoholism, nepotism, and general incompetence.

Oh, yeah. Thoughts and prayers, tovarishchi.
