The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Trump is Right About ‘Flipping’

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 28, 2018

How many times have you read of a prisoner testifying against a fellow prisoner? How valid is the testimony when you know there is something in it for the witness?

A cop’s job is to make arrests.

A prosecutor’s job is to get convictions.

Truth and justice? What?

written by jacob g. hornberger

In the wake of the federal criminal conviction of former Trump official Paul Manafort and the guilty plea in federal court of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, the mainstream press is singing the praises of special prosecutor (and former FBI Director) Robert Mueller and the Justice Department.

In the process, Trump’s critics are condemning his denunciation of “flipping,” the process by which federal prosecutors offer a sweet deal to criminal defendants in return for testifying against a “higher-up” who the feds are also prosecuting. The press and the anti-Trumpsters say that such a practice is part of the “rule of law” and essential to the proper administration of justice.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Whatever else might be said about Trump, he is absolutely right on this point. The process of offering sweetheart deals to people in return for their “cooperation” to get someone else convicted has long been one of the most corrupt aspects of the federal criminal-justice system, especially as part of the federal government’s much-vaunted (and much-failed) war on drugs… Read the rest of this entry »

Seamus Bruner: Comey-Mueller ‘Cash in Through the Revolving Door’ of the Swamp

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 26, 2018

Schweizer concluded, “What Seamus shows is this pattern where, when Mueller is in the private sector and Comey is in government, there seem to be contracts and resources that flow in that direction, as well. It’s kind of a tag team arrangement that these two have. It speaks to the financial underbelly that exists even at the Department of Justice. … There are lots of ways in which these officials self-enrich themselves.”

by Robert Kraychik

Seamus Bruner, Government Accountability Institute (GAI) researcher and author of Compromised: How Money and Politics Drive FBI Corruptionexplained how former FBI Directors James Comey and Robert Mueller leveraged their government positions to enrich themselves. He joined Peter Schweizer, GAI president and Breitbart News senior editor-at-large, for a Wednesday interview with Sean Hannity.

“This is a familiar story [about] the revolving door; turning public service into self service,” said Bruner. “We followed the money. We followed it to the top, and we found that these choir boys or boy scouts — as the media likes to depict them — James Comey and Robert Mueller, they’re really no better than anyone else in the swamp. They use their public service [and] their contacts and they cash in through the revolving door.”

Bruner described Lockheed Martin’s — the country’s largest national defense and security contractor — hiring of James Comey in 2005 to the dual position of general counsel and senior vice president as unusual. Comey was 44 at the time and without requisite corporate experience.

Mueller Appears to Have Screwed Up by ‘Accidentally’ Exposing Names in Manafort Case

Posted by M. C. Fox on June 14, 2018

Accident or on purpose? When you are as desperate as Mueller is to get something on someone anything can happen.

Maybe one day we will see actual evidence on something from the NeverTrumpers.

https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/mueller-appears-to-have-screwed-up-by-accidentally-exposing-names-in-manafort-case/

by 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team have been aggressively pursuing former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, even tacking on new charges of obstruction of justice due to alleged attempted witness tampering.

Although Mueller has been tight-lipped about evidence and witness identification up to this point, his team appears to have screwed up by outing journalists who “produced messages to the FBI” about Manafort’s alleged “coaching up” on lobbying practices. Manafort was indicted in D.C. back in October 2017 for alleged financial fraud and violating lobbying disclosure laws. There’s also a case against him in the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA)…

Mueller Scrambles To Limit Evidence After Indicted Russians Actually Show Up In Court | Zero Hedge

Posted by M. C. Fox on June 13, 2018

Blocking the evidence so we don’t tell the nasty Russians how to do the dirty tricks that we are accusing them of already doing.

Eventually Mueller might find something worth exposing but I don’t have that kind of  time to wait around.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-12/mueller-scrambles-limit-evidence-after-indicted-russians-actually-show-court

by Tyler Durden

Mueller asked a Washington federal Judge for a protective order that would prevent the delivery of copious evidence to lawyers for Concord Management and Consulting, LLC, one of three Russian firms and 13 Russian nationals. The indictment accuses the firm of producing propaganda, pretending to be U.S. activists online and posting political content on social media in order to sow discord among American voters.

The special counsel’s office argues that the risk of the evidence leaking or falling into the hands of foreign intelligence services, especially Russia, would assist the Kremlin’s active “interference operations” against the United States.

“The substance of the government’s evidence identifies uncharged individuals and entities that the government believes are continuing to engage in interference operations like those charged in the present indictment,” prosecutors wrote.

Improper disclosure would tip foreign intelligence services about how the U.S. operates, which would “allow foreign actors to learn of those techniques and adjust their conduct, thus undermining ongoing and future national security operations,” according to the filing.

The evidence includes thousands of documents involving U.S. residents not charged with crimes who prosecutors say were unwittingly recruited by Russian defendants and co-conspirators to engage in political activity in the U.S., prosecutors wrote. –Bloomberg

Mueller also accused Concord of “knowingly and intentionally” conspiring to interfere with the election by using social media to disparage Hillary Clinton and support Donald Trump.

And Concord Management decided to fight it…  Read the rest of this entry »

THESE Are Mueller’s Questions? – Taki’s Magazine

Posted by M. C. Fox on May 11, 2018

The first strange thing about the questions is that a lot of them are concerned with stuff that happened after the special prosecutor was appointed, which would mean Mueller was hired in May of 2017 to investigate the future! 

http://takimag.com/article/these_are_muellers_questions_joe_bob_briggs/print#axzz5F6X8Llyy

by Joe Bob Briggs

So, yeah, it’s kind of obvious why Robert Mueller’s “secret questions that he wants to ask Trump” got leaked to the New York Times.

I could have written these questions.

Because . . . I read the New York Times.

Anybody with access to Google Search could have written these questions.

Mueller got half of them from reporting in the Times and the Washington Post.

There’s no background to these questions that’s not already known to, like, everybody in the world.

Shouldn’t the special prosecutor, after a full year of investigations, have inside information that nobody else knows about? Read the rest of this entry »

When Will Congress Investigate All Interference in Elections?

Posted by M. C. Fox on February 23, 2018

It is not the fact that we interfere in foreign affairs so much, except for assassination and government overthrow, it is the hypocrisy.

The government and press, for the most part, totally ignore US meddling, assassinations and overthrow of non-cooperative regimes. The sheeple heard something about Chile but, yah, that was a long time ago, can’t be bothered.

Very aggravating.

https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/02/22/when-will-congress-investigate-all-interference-in-elections.html

And the United States is hardly innocent when it comes to interfering in the domestic politics of both friends and enemies. That is very often what intelligence agencies are designed to do, and no one is more active in interfering in foreign governments and elections than the United States of America.

Contra Corner » Mueller’s Comic Book Indictment: How to Prosecute A Great Big Nothingburger

Posted by M. C. Fox on February 22, 2018

Mueller should explain why the NSA, CIA, FIB massive domestic spying program did not pick up this. Under Obama’s watch when he thought Hillary would win. Oh, wait a minute, they are still trying to explain away the Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz.

Another government Epic Fail.

http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/muellers-comic-book-indictment-how-to-prosecute-a-great-big-nothingburger/

David Stockman

We have always heard that a determined government prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich, and now we know it’s true. After 38 years in the prosecution racket, Robert Mueller just made his biggest score ever—that is, he nailed a great big Nothingburger.

But he also did a lot more than that. Mueller’s 37-page comic book indictment actually unmasks—inadvertently to be sure—the distinctly un-terrifying essence of the whole Russian meddling narrative. In fact, the crude social media emissions (ads and posts) of the so-called troll farm were generally lame, often laughable and sometimes downright ludicrous as per this gem cited by Mueller:

US: No Free Speech for Russians – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. Fox on February 22, 2018

The gorilla so big I didn’t see it!

Why didn’t the CIA or the NSA or the FBI pick this up? 

Under Obama’s watch when he thought Hillary would win.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/02/andrew-p-napolitano/mueller-in-hot-pursuit/

…The dates are important because we know from the revelations of Edward Snowden that the National Security Agency, the federal government’s domestic spying apparatus, began its pursuit of capturing all electronic data on everyone in the U.S. in 2001 and succeeded in mastering the capture of all keystrokes, telephone calls and digital traffic by 2005. We also know that the NSA traffic proceeds through FBI computers and that the CIA keeps constant tabs on Russian spies in Russia and elsewhere.

Why didn’t the CIA or the NSA or the FBI pick this up?

That is the $64,000 question that the indictment does not address, Read the rest of this entry »

Mexican Nationals Meddled and Colluded in the 2016 Election

Posted by M. C. Fox on February 19, 2018

“Only in the Democratic Party could an illegal alien achieve such heights without disguising his illegality,” O’Keefe writes.  Apparently, Vargas had known Creamer for years.

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/02/mexican_nationals_meddled_emandem_colluded_in_the_2016_election.html

Most importantly, perhaps, the Mueller investigation has established that meddling by foreign nationals in a U.S. election is real and problematic.  This being so, the DOJ and FBI might want to turn their attention to the role Mexican nationals played in the 2016 election.  They will not have to dig deep to find evidence.

A good place to start searching would be the audio the journalists of Project Veritas recorded in their undercover stings of the Hillary Clinton campaign.  To make the search easier, James O’Keefe has documented many of these conversations in his new book, American Pravda.

“Explosive”, “Shocking” And “Alarming” FISA Memo Set To Rock DC, “End Mueller Investigation” | Zero Hedge

Posted by M. C. Fox on January 20, 2018

We can only wait and see.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-18/explosive-shocking-and-alarming-fisa-memo-set-rock-dc-end-mueller-investigation?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+zerohedge%2Ffeed+%28zero+hedge+-+on+a+long+enough+timeline%2C+the+survival+rate+for+everyone+drops+to+zero%29

All hell is breaking loose in Washington D.C. after a four-page memo detailing extensive FISA court abuse was made available to the entire House of Representatives Thursday. The contents of the memo are so explosive, says Journalist Sara Carter, that it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice and the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.

These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating…
