“Smoking gun” text messages confirm that Obama White NOT Russians meddled in 2016 election

The RussiaGate scandal is one of the most aggressively pushed and factually empty hoaxes a government has ever tried to pull on its people.

The fact we have this phoney scandal in the United States, which is supposed to be the “land of the free”, is also a huge travesty against both the integrity and honor of the nation.

It is also a scandal that which reflects a most amazing degree of arrogance on the part of the liberals in the US government, in that they seem to have believed that they could fabricate a scandal and launch investigations based on it, only to get caught up in it themselves.

On March 29th, 2018, a possible ‘smoking gun’ was found in the investigation of the text messages between FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ lawyer Lisa Page that, if understood correctly, reveals the involvement of several Congressmen and other officials in the Obama Administration in a plot to stir up paranoia in order to justify launching of a fake investigation into the ‘meddling’ by Russian agencies in the upcoming US Presidential election.

It is important to note that though public notice of RussiaGate started in earnest AFTER the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency, the dynamic that set this up was actually planned and launched some five to six months before the November 8th, 2016 Presidential election.

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge reported that unnamed investigators leaked to Fox News that text messages between FBI Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ attorney Lisa Page “strongly” suggest coordination between the White House, two independent intelligence agencies, and a Democratic Congressional leader. 

The people referred to are: Denis McDonough, President Obama’s Chief of Staff, CIA chief John Brennan, former US Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), Andrew McCabe, former Deputy Director of the FBI, and James Comey, Director of the FBI.

In the evidence section that follows, we have boldfaced the names just to show clearly how specific the references are.

The Evidence

According to the leak, the text messages tell of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe being concerned with “information control,” and suggest a plot to leak details of the FBI’s incipient investigation to both the White House and Reid.

John Brennan also became involved in agitating for an investigation, though his agency was supposed to be operationally separate from the FBI.

August 2, 2016: Page texted Strzok, saying:

Make sure you can lawfully protect what you sign. Just thinking about congress, foia [Freedom of Information Act], etc. You probably know better than me.”

August 3, 2016: A text message from Strzok to Page described former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as being concerned with

“information control” related to the initial investigation into the Trump campaign.

According to a report from the New York Times, Brennan was sent to Capitol Hill around the same time to brief members of Congress on the possibility of election interference.

August 8, 2016: Strzok texted Page:

“Internal joint cyber cd intel piece for D, scenesetter for McDonough brief, Trainor [head of FBI cyber division] directed all cyber info be pulled. I’d let Bill and Jim hammer it out first, though it would be best for D to have it before the Wed WH session.”

In these texts, according to the GOP investigators,

  • D” refers to FBI Director James Comey, and
  • McDonough” referred to Chief of Staff Denis McDonough

Fox News further stated that one of its sources said the information was “concerning” enough to justify launching an independent probe into the FBI’s role in launching the Trump investigation.

The Fox piece goes on to add more information:

An FBI spokesman did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

The congressional investigators pointed out to Fox News that the CIA and FBI are supposed to be “independent agencies,” and noted that “coordination between political actors at the White House and investigators would be inappropriate,” raising questions about the level of involvement of Obama White House officials.

But weeks later, on August 25, 2016, Brennan went to Capitol Hill to brief Harry Reid — and it was unclear whether FBI officials attended the briefing, a congressional source told Fox News.

Two days after the briefing, Reid penned a letter to Comey requesting an investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Senator Reid in the letter referred to wrote the following:

The evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount and has led Michael Morrell, the former Acting Central Intelligence Director, to call Trump an ‘unwitting agent’ of Russia and the Kremlin.  The prospect of a hostile government actively seeking to undermine our free and fair elections represents one of the gravest threats to our democracy since the Cold War and it is critical for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to use every resource available to investigate this matter thoroughly and in a timely fashion.

Reid went on to cite reports in his letter, noting “methods” Russia was using to influence the Trump campaign and “manipulate it as a vehicle for advancing the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin.”

We don’t have any examples of this to show. I suspect, neither did Harry Reid. But that didn’t stop him from continuing the plot weaving, as he added the idea that

Recent staff changes within the Trump campaign have made clear that the Trump campaign has employed a number of individuals with significant and disturbing ties to Russia and the Kremlin,” urging Comey to make the investigation “public.

The New York Times reported on Reid’s letter to Comey for the first time on Aug. 29, 2016.

August 30, 2016: Strzok texted Page: “Here we go,” sending a link to that selfsame Times report titled, “Harry Reid Cites Evidence of Russian Tampering in U.S. Vote and seeks FBI inquiry.”

The texts also detail the FBI and Brennan’s role in feeding information to Reid, which inspired him to write a letter to the FBI demanding that an investigation be launched.

That letter was later leaked to the press. The Reid letter, Fox said, provided political cover for the bureau when it tried to justify launching an investigation into Trump as early as July 2016.

In other words, the FBI was well-versed in how to strategically use “leaks” to manage information control and wash its hands over any potential collusion allegations… with the exception of course of the texts that reveal how the plot was hatched in the first place.

“We are not making conclusions. What we are saying is that the timeline is concerning enough to warrant the appointment of an independent investigator to look at whether or not the Obama White House was involved [in the Trump-Russia investigation],” a GOP congressional source told Fox News.

Naturally, coordination between political appointees at the White House and DOJ investigators would cast doubt on the entire Russia probe, Fox‘s sources said.

The question now is whether McCabe, who was fired two weeks ago, will be called in to testify on these stark allegations.

ZeroHedge went on to say:

One thing is for certain: The texts provide the clearest sign yet into the Obama administration’s role in helping get the Russia probe off the ground in an attempt to roadblock President Trump’s new administration, all the while Obama chose to do nothing about reports of Russian attempts at election interference.

Now, this last phrase, in my opinion, still reeks of fabrication. Part of the RussiaGate narrative is the blind insistence that Russia was interfering with the US election process.

However, as has been pointed out by no less than the Mueller investigation itself, Russian interference was laughably minimal, and probably of absolutely no effect whatsoever on any part of the US Presidential election campaigns by any candidate. 

However, the strong possibility of a connection does exist between the Obama Administration and the Hillary Clinton Campaign.

All the pieces are falling into place.

How Mueller and all his minion’s homes, offices, text messages haven’t been raided by US Marshalls and brought out in handcuffs only shows the reality of the deepstate and DC’s Cesspool of leftist rulers, who have for decades been ruling the FBI/DOJ/NSA against Americans. Worse then Russia, is all these corrupt activist who sold their souls to the DNC and betrayed Americans who sadly trusted them. Never again can we allow these cancers to grow in these unionized sand boxes of satanic wasteful bureaucratic mafia dens. It took years for them to selectively hire the most incompetent and unpatriotic leaders… Read more »

Rod Rosenstein resigns from his post before President Trump can fire him

Rosenstein’s comments about secretly recording the President backfire, and resignation may throw the Mueller Russiagate probe into question.

The Washington Times broke the story that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein resigned from his post. He submitted his resignation to Chief of Staff John Kelly.  At present the breaking story says the following:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is out at the Department of Justice.

Axios reported that Mr. Rosenstein verbally resigned to White House Chief Of Staff John Kelly, but CNN said that he is expecting to be fired.

Sarah Isgur Flores, a Department of Justice spokeswoman, declined to comment on the reports.

Mr. Rosenstein’s departure immediately throws Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion probe into chaos.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation, leaving Mr. Rosenstein in charge.

President Trump mulled firing the No. 2 at the Department of Justice over the weekend.

This report came after Fox News reported that the Deputy AG was summoned to the White House. Fox reported a little more detail:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is heading to the White House expecting to be fired, sources tell Fox News, in the wake of a report that he suggested wearing a wire against President Trump and invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office last year.

This is a developing story, however one major factor that comes under consideration is the fate of Robert Mueller and his Russiagate investigation, which was authorized by Rosenstein. CNBC had this to say in their piece:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is resigning Monday, according to Axios, which cited a source familiar with the matter.

NBC News’ Pete Williams, however, reported that Rosenstein would not resign of his own accord, and that he will only depart if the White House fired him. He will refuse to resign if asked to do so, Williams added.

Rosenstein was at the White House when Williams reported this on the air. However, President Donald Trump is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly.

Bloomberg later reported that the White House accepted Rosenstein’s resignation, citing a person familiar with the matter.

Rosenstein’s expected resignation will immediately raise questions about the fate of the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump.

Rosenstein’s job security was called into question after The New York Times reported last week that the No. 2 DOJ official had discussed invoking the 25th amendment to remove Trump, and had also talked about surreptitiously recording the president.

Rosenstein oversees the special counsel investigation, and has appointed Mueller to run the Russia probe last year, after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the case.

The special counsel’s office declined to comment on the report.

The White House did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment on Axios’ report. The Justice Department did not immediately respond to CNBC’s inquiry.

Trump has repeatedly blasted Mueller’s inquiry, which also is focused on possible collusion with Russia by members of the Trump campaign.

He has called the investigation a “witch hunt,” and has repeatedly vented frustration about Sessions’ recusal, which directly led to Mueller’s appointment by Rosenstein.

Rosenstein’s expected departure comes on the heels of a guilty plea by Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort to conspiracy charges related to his consulting work in Ukraine, which predates his role on the campaign.

As part of the investigation, Mueller’s team has been locked in an ongoing back-and-forth with Trump’s legal team over an in-person interview with the president.

Trump’s lawyers, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, have signaled that Trump is unwilling to sit for an interview, calling it a “perjury trap” and setting up a potential challenge for Mueller to subpoena the president.

This story is developing. Please check back for updates.

‘Steps everyone will notice’ – Syria to get powerful Russian S-300 system

New defense systems are expected to be in Syria within two weeks, suggesting that the Russians seriously mean what they say.

Seraphim Hanisch

On September 22, Robert Bridge wrote about how an Israeli incursion into Syria that ended with the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane and fifteen crewmen was an incident that the Russian Federation’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said: “The actions of the Israeli military were not in keeping with the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership, so we reserve the right to respond.”

And the Israelis are concerned, as they should be. After what they did, and their subsequent blame game, trying to pin the responsibility for this incident on the Syrian forces (which are backed by Russia), now the payback has arrived.

TASS reported September 24th that Russia decided to install advanced S-300 anti-missile and anti-aircraft batteries in Syria. The older S-200 systems could not differentiate between friendly and unfriendly targets, which was how the Israeli fighters managed to not get shot down. They “framed” an IL-20, and the missiles intended to stop the incursion instead took out a Russian plane.

TASS writes:

Within two weeks, the Syrian army will get from Russia S-300 air-defense missiles to strengthen its combat capabilities following the downing of a Russian Ilyushin Il-20 aircraft in Syria, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Monday.

“A modern S-300 air defense missile system will be supplied to the Syrian Armed Forces within two weeks. It is capable of intercepting air assault weapons at a distance of more than 250 kilometers and hit simultaneously several air targets,” the minister said.

Shoigu said S-300 missiles will strongly strengthen combat capabilities of the Syrian air defense due to their jamming invulnerability and firing speed.

“I will underscore – at the request of the Israeli side, in 2013 we suspended the delivery of S-300 systems that were ready for the dispatch, while the Syrian military had undergone training. Now the situation has changed, and we are not to blame,” the defense minister said.

Command posts of the Syrian air defense will also be equipped with Russian automated systems, which guarantee the identification of Russian aircraft, the defense chief stated.

“The command posts of Syrian air defense forces and units will be equipped with automated control systems only supplied to the Russian armed forces. This will facilitate centralized control over all forces and resources of the Syrian air defense, monitor the situation in the air, and ensure operative issuance of orders. Most importantly, we will guarantee the identification of all Russian aircraft by the Syrian air defense systems,” Shoigu said.

A Russian electronic surveillance Il-20 plane was downed over the Mediterranean Sea late on September 17 when it was flying back to the Russian airbase at Syria’s Hmeymim. According to the Russian defense ministry, the plane was shot down by a missile from a Syrian S-200 air defense complex when it was firing at four Israeli F-16 aircraft attacking targets in the Latakia Governorate. The Israeli pilots actually used the Russian aircraft as a cover, exposing it to Syrian missiles, the ministry stressed.

Looking at a map of military forces and theatres of conflict in Syria is all but incomprehensible at first glance. The nation is strategically located and is the stress point of at least two major powers – Russia and the United States / NATO. The Israelis showed their rather characteristic propensity to mislead and what is surprising is the rather gutsy way they appear to have tried to do this with the Russians. Again, Israel took upon itself the “right” to conduct raids in Syria. The only major power with internationally accepted authority to be there is Russia.

With ISIS effectively defeated, the real nature of the Syrian conflict as a proxy war becomes more evident. President Putin’s handling was masterful, but one can probably expect the level of tension in this region to be especially high now.

Twitter buckles to elitist madness, BANS Alex Jones and InfoWars

Four weeks after Twitter tried to act fair, it banned Jones, using an argument he had with a CNN reporter and Jack Dorsey himself as an alibi.

Seraphim Hanisch

Published

on

Four weeks ago, Twitter came under fire for not banning Alex Jones from its social network as a wave of bans against the strongly conservative newsman swept across other prominent media outlets like Facebook, Apple and YouTube. But now, it appears that Jack Dorsey has caved into the pressure.

Alex Jones and InfoWars are now banned from Twitter as well. CNBC reports:

Twitter has permanently banned the accounts of right-wing conspiracy theorist and radio host Alex Jones and InfoWars for violating the company’s abusive behavior policies, the company said Thursday.

The ban appears to be related to a heated exchange between Jones and a CNN reporter Wednesday, which Jones live streamed on the Twitter-owned video service Periscope. Jones ranted at the reporter, as well as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, following back-to-back congressional hearings where Dorsey addressed online election meddling, as well as accusations of political bias and conservative censorship on the platform.

“We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations,” the company said in a series of tweets. “We wanted to be open about this action given the broad interest in this case.”

The ban comes weeks after Jones’ accounts were removed or suspended by other major tech companies like Apple, Facebook and YouTube. Twitter had initially declined to take disciplinary action against Jones, saying the accounts had not violated community guidelines, but later suspended him for a period of seven days.

Accounts for Jones and Infowars were also banned from Periscope. Jones will not be able to recreate his presence on the sites under another account.

Freedom of speech is a Constitutional right to every American citizen under the First Amendment. This means that the government cannot curtail a citizen’s right to speak against the government, and indeed, to speak about anything one desires to say. The text of the amendment is here below:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

However, while Congress cannot curtail free speech, private industry can, and it is here that the elements of the American and global left have directed their efforts to curtail political free speech. Since YouTube is a worldwide platform, and since Apple is similarly large, and of course, Facebook, the elimination of Alex Jones’ broadcasts and posts on and through these media outlets places a burden on Mr. Jones to find ways to get his message out, according to his Constitutional freedom to do so.

In a sense this move by Twitter help slam the door even further on conservative dissent against the liberal and globalist agenda as it applies to the United States. While the assault on free speech rights (for conservatives) has been on for decades, in the present Trump years, the movement to silence conservative dissent against a mostly monolithic media narrative got much more focused and much stronger.

While Alex Jones still has his own website and is still almost as accessible as he ever was, the large social networks greatly eased his network’s efforts to get its point of view out to the world. Apparently the ban hit while he was trending at #1 on Twitter. This in itself is quite interesting that the pundit was canned while he was surging in popularity on Twitter.

A few hours after the ban was announced, Alex Jones gave this statement through his site, Infowars.com: (A VPN may be required as this website is blocked or partially blocked in some countries.)

I was taken down not because we lie, but because we tell the truth, and because we were popular. And because we dared go to that Committee hearing, and stand up to Rubio, and stand up to the lies of the mainstream media, and speak the truth. And then we ran into Oliver Darcy, who is the secret police captain, who admits he goes around and gets people like InfoWars taken off other platforms. Because we confronted that monster, that has abused us, and lied about us, and taken our speech… Yeah, because of that, they took us down…

InfoWars – and Alex Jones – are truly caught up in an Information War.
