Lisa Page: Obama DOJ Ordered FBI Not to Prosecute Hillary Clinton

Posted by M. C. on March 13, 2019

As we suspected, Bubba and Loretta talked about more than grand kids on that airplane. I thought at the time with all the practice Bubba has had he would have been more careful.

by Charlie Spierling

Former FBI legal counsel Lisa Page testified to Congress that the Justice Department ordered the FBI not to charge former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with “gross negligence” by mishandling classified information.

Transcripts of Page’s closed-door testimony in July 2018 were released Tuesday by Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) on Tuesday, which included the following exchange with Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX):

RATCLIFFE: So let me if I can, I know I’m testing your memory. But when you say advice you got from the Department, you’re making it sound like it was the Department that told you: You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to …

PAGE: That is correct.

RATFLIFFE: …bring a case based on that.

Page confirmed that the Department of Justice led by Attorney General Loretta Lynch had “multiple conversations” about charging Clinton with gross negligence but noted that it would be a rare decision.

“[T]hey did not feel they could sustain a charge,” she said, referring to the Department of Justice.

President Donald Trump reacted to the reports on Wednesday.

“The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine,” he wrote. “Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!”

Be seeing you

Obama peace

Trump vs. the FBI: Who are the good guys? | The Daily Bell

Posted by M. C. on March 3, 2019

All we can do is separate ourselves to the best of our abilities from far off bureaucrats and politicians

https://www.thedailybell.com/all-articles/news-analysis/trump-vs-the-fbi-who-are-the-good-guys/

By Joe Jarvis

The bad guys wear black hats.

We’re programmed to see things in black or white, right or wrong, good or evil. From what we are shown in movies and books from an early age, there is a protagonist and an antagonist.

Clever writers make it a little more complex, with the Boo Radleys and Snapes who are thought to be villains but turn out to be heroes. But generally, the characters fit largely into extremes: good guys or bad guys with little overlap: Harry Potter versus Voldemort.

But it’s those characters on the edge who people can’t get enough of. Like Walter White, the cancer patient who starts producing meth to leave some money behind for his family in the TV show Breaking Bad.

And that’s probably because its an often unspoken truth that life is mostly gray, and not so black and white.

But the binary two choice meme has a function. It makes things a hell of a lot easier. And it prevents us from being crippled by indecision and inaction.

Of course, this is also easily exploited by bad guys… Read the rest of this entry »

How the FBI Tamed Muckraking Reporter Ned Day – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on March 3, 2019

This guy is lucky. If he were higher profile or less well liked he could have easily been made dead.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2019/02/l-reichard-white/how-the-fbi-tamed-muckraking-reporter-ned-day-as-related-to-me-by-mike-kent/

By

Ned Day was groomed into the news business by anti-establishment legend Bob Brown and his North Las Vegas “Valley Times.” The Valley Times was legendary for breaking stories The Las Vegas Sun and the Review Journal wouldn’t touch, stories embarrassing to the local establishment, including the FBI.

Ned became a champ at digging out the dirty laundry — and so well-known for his exploits that someone blew up his car. So well-known that he was hired away from the Valley Times by the Review Journal in 1981.

It was clear that Ned had connections inside the FBI. AND inside the “mob.” He used them, they used him.

Mike Kent — of computer gang fame — was somewhat of a fan. He’d been remarking that Ned seemed to have lost his anti-establishment edge… Read the rest of this entry »

The FBI Came Close to Staging a Coup

Posted by M. C. on February 20, 2019

McCabe’s almost offhanded comments on “60 Minutes,” that the FBI actively considered deposing a sitting president should be cause for alarm.  Set partisan politics aside for a moment.  We’re talking about deposing a sitting president.

https://consortiumnews.com/2019/02/16/the-fbi-came-close-to-staging-a-coup/

By John Kiriakou

Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, in an explosive interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes,” said that in early 2017,  in the aftermath of President Donald Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, he and other FBI officials discussed the possibility of recruiting a cabinet secretary to help push the president out of office by using the Constitution’s 25thAmendment

McCabe further contended that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire when he was around Trump in order to gather evidence against him.  (Rosenstein denies the allegation.)  McCabe said that Justice Department officials believed at the

time that Trump may have obstructed justice by firing Comey, and they worried that Trump was somehow under the influence of the Russian government.  In the end, nothing came of the plan. Regardless of one’s feelings toward President Trump and his

policies, what McCabe is describing is nothing less than a coup attempt. It’s something that happens in weak or nascent democracies, following interference by the CIA perhaps.  It should never happen here. Read the rest of this entry »

Dershowitz on McCabe’s 25th Amendment Effort: ‘Clearly an Attempted Coup D’état’

Poor Alan has just realized there is a coup d’etat occuring!

“grievous offense against the Constitution.”

by Jeff Poor

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” former Harvard constitutional law professor Alan Dershowitz reacted to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s claim there were those inside the Department of Justice contemplating invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Donald Trump from the presidency.

Dershowitz called that effort an “attempted coup d’état” and a “grievous offense against the Constitution.”…

The Russian Spy Who Wasn’t | The New Republic

Posted by M. C. on February 12, 2019

Quite a story from an anti-gun author in a progressive publication.

https://newrepublic.com/article/153036/maria-butina-profile-wasnt-russian-spy

By JAMES BAMFORD

On a steamy Sunday last July, at about half-past noon, a caravan of unmarked SUVs exited the FBI’s Washington, D.C., field office, an eight-story concrete building that exudes all the charm of a supermax prison. The cars moved swiftly across the city; speed was critical. There were indications that the target, who had canceled the lease on her apartment and packed her belongings, was about to take flight.

Just before one o’clock, the SUVs turned off Wisconsin Avenue and into a parking lot at 3617 38th Street NW, a low, red-brick apartment building near American University. Armed agents in bulletproof vests filled a narrow corridor outside apartment 208. Inside, Maria Butina was watching the Wimbledon men’s final on TV and preparing for a long drive in a U-Haul truck to South Dakota. Having just graduated from American University with a master’s degree in international affairs, she was about to start working as a consultant in the cryptocurrency industry. Her boyfriend of five years, a 57-year-old Republican activist named Paul Erickson, would be traveling with her to his home in Sioux Falls.

“Everything was boxed up,” Erickson told me. “The last thing to do was to pack the electronics, to unplug the TV and the internet. And then pound! Pound! Pound! I answered the door, and there was a team of six agents in the hallway.” Three of the agents surrounded Erickson while the other three went after Butina. “The team went in, dragged her out, spun her around, cuffed her in the hallway, and announced her arrest,” Erickson said.

Shocking Admission By FBI Veteran Shows Why The FBI Shouldn’t Exist – Caitlin Johnstone

Posted by M. C. on January 24, 2019

…when I first got into the FBI, one of the missions of the FBI in its counterintelligence efforts was to try and keep these people out of government.

https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2019/01/21/shocking-admission-by-fbi-veteran-shows-why-the-fbi-shouldnt-exist/

On the 18th of November, 1964, the FBI’s appallingly corrupt boss J. Edgar Hoover denounced Martin Luther King Jr. as “the most notorious liar in the country.” A few days later, a Hoover deputy named William Sullivan wrote King a letter posing as a disillusioned follower and using powerful, manipulative language to urge the civil rights leader to commit suicide before evidence of his extramarital affair became public. Enclosed was an FBI recording containing evidence of the affair.

Whenever America celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day we should remind ourselves that it is a known, undisputed fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation engineered a psyop to manipulate one of the world’s greatest minds into committing suicide. It is also worth reviewing the compelling argument for the case that the FBI was behind King’s assassination as well.

Hoover, who headed the FBI for decades, obsessively despised King on a deeply personal level. He kept files on the civil rights leader in which he’d scribble hateful comments on memos he received about King, apparently for no purpose other than his own gratification and catharsis. On a memo about King receiving the St. Francis peace medal from the Catholic Church, he wrote “This is disgusting.” On the news of King’s meeting with the pope, he scribbled, “I am amazed that the Pope gave an audience to such a degenerate.”

The Rutherford Institute :: Uncle Sam Wants Your DNA: The FBI’s Diabolical Plan to Create a Nation of Suspects |

Posted by M. C. on January 24, 2019

 “As police agencies build out their local DNA databases, they are collecting DNA not only from people who have been charged with major crimes but also, increasingly, from people who are merely deemed suspicious, permanently linking their genetic identities to criminal databases.”

https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/uncle_sam_wants_your_dna_the_fbis_diabolical_plan_to_create_a_nation_of_suspects

By John W. Whitehead

Uncle Sam wants you.

Correction: Uncle Sam wants your DNA.

Actually, if the government gets its hands on your DNA, they as good as have you in their clutches.

Get ready, folks, because the government— helped along by Congress (which adopted legislation allowing police to collect and test DNA immediately following arrests), President Trump (who signed the Rapid DNA Act into law), the courts (which have ruled that police can routinely take DNA samples from people who are arrested but not yet convicted of a crime), and local police agencies (which are chomping at the bit to acquire this new crime-fighting gadget)—is embarking on a diabolical campaign to create a nation of suspects predicated on a massive national DNA database.

As the New York Times reports:

“The science-fiction future, in which police can swiftly identify robbers and murderers from discarded soda cans and cigarette butts, has arrived. In 2017, President Trump signed into law the Rapid DNA Act, which, starting this year, will enable approved police booking stations in several states to connect their Rapid DNA machines to Codis, the national DNA database. Genetic fingerprinting is set to become as routine as the old-fashioned kind.

Referred to as “magic boxes,” these Rapid DNA machines—portable, about the size of a desktop printer, highly unregulated, far from fool-proof, and so fast that they can produce DNA profiles in less than two hours—allow police to go on fishing expeditions for any hint of possible misconduct using DNA samples.

Kennedy and King Family Members and Advisors Call for Congress to Reopen Assassination Probes – Edward Curtin FBI’s “Suicide Letter” to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Posted by M. C. on January 21, 2019

Lest we forget.

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/11/fbis-suicide-letter-dr-martin-luther-king-jr-and-dangers-unchecked-surveillance

The New York Times has published an unredacted version of the famous “suicide letter” from the FBI to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The letter, recently discovered by historian and professor Beverly Gage, is a disturbing document. But it’s also something that everyone in the United States should read, because it demonstrates exactly what lengths the intelligence community is willing to go to—and what happens when they take the fruits of the surveillance they’ve done and unleash it on a target.

The anonymous letter was the result of the FBI’s comprehensive surveillance and harassment strategy against Dr. King, which included bugging his hotel rooms, photographic surveillance, and physical observation of King’s movements by FBI agents. The agency also attempted to break up his marriage by sending selectively edited “personal moments he shared with friends and women” to his wife…

The FBI Prostituted ItselfThe American Spectator

Posted by M. C. on January 16, 2019

https://spectator.org/the-fbi-prostituted-itself/

Citing unnamed “former law enforcement sources and others,” the New York Times reports that “in the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.”

The mainstream media has touted this story as major breaking news. But, to anyone who has been paying even a modicum of attention, it is crystal clear that Comey’s firing did not precipitate the FBI’s investigation of Trump. To the contrary, the readily available record facts demonstrate that Comey’s FBI began investigating Trump and his campaign for possible Russian collusion shortly after he won the Republican Party’s nomination.

Even though the Times would have us believe that the FBI investigated Trump out of a legitimate concern for national security, those same facts prove that, in launching and directing the investigation, the leadership of Comey’s FBI was engaging in partisan presidential politics to further their own selfish interests. Here’s why.

Recall that Hillary Clinton was supposed to win the 2016 presidential election. All of the pols, polls, and pundits agreed on that point. She was a lock for the White House… Read the rest of this entry »
