BREAKING!!! COMEY Just Made Announcement!! HE’S DONE! LOCK HIM UP NOW!

Published

on

HE SAID HE’S…

Former Director of the FBI James Comey is upset. By now the whole world probably knows the fact that President Donald Trump has declassified the FISA Memo which was written by Congressman Devin Nunes from California. And needless to say, those who thought they were above the law are outraged and terrified at the same time.

One of those who has become unhinged is the Former Director of the FBI James Comey who went as far as to attack the Nunes memo as “dishonest and misleading” and added that it wrecked the House Intel Committee and exposed a classified investigation of an American citizen to the American public. So in other words, Comey is livid at the fact the gig is up, and the American people have confirmation of what we had suspected for decades, the FBI could be corrupt to its core.

As you can see in the tweet below, Comey can’t believe we finally have an American President who fights for the American people, and not for his party as Obama did. But what is probably the most critical fallout to this memo is the fact that ‘Russian collusion’ is 100{78542f715c0ddf274bb4bd1417bda8d6bd612435d2d7eeaff437ad9ffc603dfe} fake so the Mueller investigation should stop ASAP.  It’s believed that Rod Rosenstein knew this all along.

Read the entire Nunes Memo: 

“UNCLASSIFIED

Declassified by order of the President — February 2, 2018

January 18, 2018

To: HPSCI Majority Members

From: HPSCI Majority Staff

Subject: Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Abuses at the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation

This memorandum provides Members an update on significant facts relating to the Committee’s ongoing investigation into the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and their use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the 2016 presidential election cycle. Our findings, which are detailed below, 1) raise concerns with the legitimacy and legality of certain DOJ and FBI interactions with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), and 2) represent a troubling breakdown of legal processes established to protect the American people from abuses related to the FISA process.

Investigation Update

On October 21, 2016, DOJ and FBI sought and received a FISA probable cause order (not under Title VII) authorizing electronic surveillance on Carter Page from the FISC. Page is a U.S. citizen who served as a volunteer advisor to the Trump presidential campaign. Consistent with requirements under FISA, the application had to be first certified by the Director or Deputy Director of the FBI. It then required the approval of the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General (DAG), or the Senate-confirmed Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division.

The FBI and DOJ obtained one initial FISA warrant targeting Carter Page and three FISA renewals from the FISC. As required by statute (50 U.S.C. §1805(d)(1)), a FISA order on an American citizen must be renewed by the FISC every 90 days and each renewal requires a separate finding of probable cause. Then-Director James Comey signed three FISA applications in question on behalf of the FBI, and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe signed one. Then-DAG Sally Yates, then-Acting DAG Dana Boente, and DAG Rod Rosenstein each signed one or more FISA applications on behalf of DOJ.

Due to the sensitive nature of foreign intelligence activity, FISA submissions (including renewals) before the FISC are classified. As such, the public’s confidence in the integrity of the FISA process depends on the court’s ability to hold the government to the highest standard particularly as it relates to surveillance of American citizens. However, the FISC’s rigor in protecting the rights of Americans, which is reinforced by 90-day renewals of surveillance orders, is necessarily dependent on the government’s production to the court of all material and relevant facts. This should include information potentially favorable to the target of the FISA application that is known by the government. In the case of Carter Page, the government had at least four independent opportunities before the FISC to accurately provide an accounting of the relevant facts. However, our findings indicate that, as described below, material and relevant information was omitted.

1) The “dossier” compiled by Christopher Steele (Steele dossier) on behalf of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign formed an essential part of the Carter Page FISA application. Steele was a longtime FBI source who was paid over $160,000 by the DNC and Clinton campaign, via the law firm Perkins Coie and research firm Fusion GPS, to obtain derogatory information on Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.

a) Neither the initial application in October 2016, nor any of the renewals, disclose or reference the role of the DNC, Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were then known to senior DOJ and FBI officials.

b) The initial FISA application notes Steele was working for a named U.S. person, but does not name Fusion GPS and principal Glenn Simpson, who was paid by a U.S. law firm (Perkins Coie) representing the DNC (even though it was known by DOJ at the time that political actors were involved with the Steele dossier). The application does not mention Steele was ultimately working on behalf of—and paid by—the DNC and Clinton campaign, or that the FBI had separately authorized payment to Steele for the same information.

2) The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News. The Page FISA application incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News. Steele has admitted in British court filings that he met with Yahoo News—and several other outlets—in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington D.C. in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed.

a) Steele was suspended and then terminated as an FBI source for what the FBI defines as the most serious of violations—an unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI in an October 30, 2016, Mother Jones article by David Corn. Steele should have been terminated for his previous undisclosed contacts with Yahoo and other outlets in September—before the Page application was submitted to the FISC in October—but Steele improperly concealed from and lied to the FBI about those contacts.

b) Steele’s numerous encounters with the media violated the cardinal rule of source handling—maintaining confidentiality—and demonstrated that Steele had become a less than reliable source for the FBI.

3) Before and after Steele was terminated as a source, he maintained contact with DOJ via then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, a senior DOJ official who worked closely with Deputy Attorneys General Yates and later Rosenstein. Shortly after the election, the FBI began interviewing Ohr, documenting his communications with Steele. For example, in September 2016, Steele admitted to Ohr his feelings against then-candidate Trump when Steele said he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president.” This clear evidence of Steele’s bias was recorded by Ohr at the time and subsequently in official FBI files—but not reflected in any of the Page FISA applications.

a) During this same time period, Ohr’s wife was employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump. Ohr later provided the FBI with all of his wife’s opposition research, paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign via Fusion GPS. The Ohrs’ relationship with Steele and Fusion GPS was inexplicably concealed from the FISC.

4) According to the head of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, Assistant Director Bill Priestap, corroboration of the Steele dossier was in its “infancy” at the time of the initial Page FISA application. After Steele was terminated, a source validation report conducted by an independent unit within FBI assessed Steele’s reporting as only minimally corroborated. Yet, in early January 2017, Director Comey briefed President-elect Trump on a summary of the Steele dossier, even though it was—according to his June 2017 testimony—“salacious and unverified.” While the FISA application relied on Steele’s past record of credible reporting on other unrelated matters, it ignored or concealed his anti-Trump financial and ideological motivations. Furthermore, Deputy Director McCabe testified before the Committee in December 2017 that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISC without the Steele dossier information.

5) The Page FISA application also mentions information regarding fellow Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos, but there is no evidence of any cooperation or conspiracy between Page and Papadopoulos. The Papadopoulos information triggered the opening of an FBI counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016 by FBI agent Pete Strzok. Strzok was reassigned by the Special Counsel’s Office to FBI Human Resources for improper text messages with his mistress, FBI Attorney Lisa Page (no known relation to Carter Page), where they both demonstrated a clear bias against Trump and in favor of Clinton, whom Strzok had also investigated. The Strzok/Lisa Page texts also reflect extensive discussions about the investigation, orchestrating leaks to the media, and include a meeting with Deputy Director McCabe to discuss an “insurance” policy against President Trump’s election.”

All the Russian Democrat narrative and investigation came from what is just a fake opposition research dossier which was paid for by the Hillary Clinton Campaign. Comey was acutely aware of this, yet he still appointed Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to carry out a witch hunt against President Trump in favor of the Democrat party. So in other words, Former President Barack Hussein Obama weaponized the FBI, in the same way, he weaponized the IRS against Tea Party members and patriots. He needs to answer for his crimes. Obama, Comey, and Hillary Clinton need to pay for their crimes against the American people, don’t you agree?

Please share if you want to see these people behind bars.

Liberals Livid After Trump Makes Announcement About Term Limits For Congress

Published

on

By

Liberals have another reason to be livid after President Donald Trump just made a shocking announcement about term limits for members of Congress. This is going to make a lot of career politicians nervous.

Career politicians have plagued our government for longer than anyone can remember. While there are some good apples in the bunch, many self-serving swamp creatures try their hardest to stick around Congress in order to build personal wealth and maintain power. Unfortunately, the end result is stagnation and underachievement for what should be a productive highly-paid group of “public servants.”

Now, President Donald Trump is taking aim at the career politicians in the Washington, D.C. swamp with a new announcement on Twitter. The President’s tweet comes just a week after he met with freshman lawmakers to talk about term limits and how they could be introduced into legislation.

“I recently had a terrific meeting with a bipartisan group of freshman lawmakers who feel very strongly in favor of Congressional term limits. I gave them my full support and endorsement for their efforts. #DrainTheSwamp,” Trump wrote.

According to The Times, Trump held a meeting in the Oval Office on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, with Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and other freshman lawmakers from both parties to discuss the possibility of imposing term limits on federal lawmakers.

The idea of imposing term limits is not new to Trump. During his presidential campaign, he said, “If I’m elected president, I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” during a rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado in October 2016.

Following the meeting with President Trump, Fitzpatrick said he is hopeful that new legislation imposing term limits on federal lawmakers could gain momentum in Congress. Fitzpatrick said that the President was receptive to the idea of introducing legislation for term limits. Fitzpatrick said that he also told Trump that it was during his time working for the FBI that he saw a direct relationship between an official’s time in office and their propensity for corruption.

“We were all taking the same position: We need legislative term limits,” Fitzpatrick said of those participating in the meeting. The Pennsylvania Congressman characterized the lack of term restrictions as a “root issue” in political corruption and said that his goal is to put a 12-year cap on the time any politician can spend in Congress. Fitzpatrick is hopeful that the President’s legislative team can refine the proposals which were presented during their meeting to increase the chances for success.

“I told the president we’re not going to let the perfect be the enemy of the good,” Fitzpatrick said. He emphasized that the process of implementing term limits is a “heavy lift” that requires a Constitutional amendment.

Fitzpatrick campaigned successfully in 2016 on a push for term limits and is ramping up his message in preparation for the upcoming election in November where he is looking keep his seat in the House of Representatives. Fitzpatrick’s Republican primary opponent, attorney Dean Malik, also supports introducing term limits for members of Congress. Malik has stated that 18 years should be the cap for federal lawmakers. “Term limits are essential to prevent the growth of an entrenched political class,” Malik said.

The following is a clip of Fitzpatrick talking about term limits during his previous congressional campaign in 2016. In my opinion, this guy has it right when it comes to term limits. Our government needs a thorough overhaul of crucial policies, and term limits are exactly where we should start.

Fitzpatrick is looking beyond his meeting with the President to continue his push for term limits and said that the other members who were present — representatives Jodey Arrington, R-Texas, Vicente Gonzalez, D-Texas, Mike Gallagher, R-Wisconsin, and Ro Khanna, D-California — plan to create a bipartisan bill and press the issue in floor speeches in the future.

When Fitzpatrick was asked if a large incoming wave of freshman Congress members could be advantageous, he replied with optimism. “I sure hope so,” he said. “It’s always hard to get members of Congress to vote against their own self-interests.” Now, with the support of the President, I think that term limits can be introduced through the hard work of people like Fitzpatrick who realize that 12 years is plenty of time for a federal lawmaker to stick around.

Liberals Freak As Pence Arrives At Border With Special Message For Migrant Caravan

Published

Liberals are freaking out after Vice President Mike Pence made a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border with a special message for the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States. If you’re a “deplorable,” you’ll love every word of this.

According to Daily Caller, Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit to a group of Border Patrol agents on Monday, April 30, 2018. While Pence was visiting, he delivered a special message for not only the hard-working men and women who stand watch at our border but also for the migrant caravan making its way into the U.S.

“This is a time in the life of the nation where we are especially grateful for the tough job that your teams do on our borders and I want to assure you that President Trump and I are absolutely committed to seeing to the construction of a border wall but also reforming our immigration laws,” Pence said, according to the Desert Sun.

Next, Pence sent a message to the caravan of people who publicized their journey up through Mexico with the intention of entering the United States without regard for our laws. Some of those have reportedly begun the process of filing for asylum while others have been photographed climbing the border wall in defiance of our immigration laws.

“We’ve been watching with great interest the advance of the so-called caravan and are grateful for the efforts particularly over this weekend that our Border Patrol has been making and ensuring that those some 150 that are still part of the caravan are dealt with in a manner consistent with the law and that our laws are enforced,” Pence continued as he spoke during a meeting with Border Patrol agents in Calexico, California.

“A nation without borders is not a nation as President Trump has said many times, and the briefing we will have today, the remarks that I’ll share in a moment and the opportunity that we’ll have to be along that new section of border wall, give evidence to the fact that this is a President, this is an administration that is absolutely committed to border integrity and to the sovereignty of the United States,” Pence added.

I could not agree more with Vice President Mike Pence’s remarks in support of President Donald Trump’s position that a “nation without borders is not a nation.” In reality, the push from liberals to flood our country doesn’t stem from a lack of understanding about sovereignty. The left completely understands border security and the concept of lawful immigration. The problem is that those principles don’t fit their political agenda because they need illegal immigrants to help them build a new base of Democratic voters.

Democrats would be lining the borders with their own bodies as a human wall to keep out immigrants if they were sure to vote Republican. This isn’t about humanitarian efforts or an act of kindness for liberals, it’s about voting, and while they continue to push for open-borders, there is a price to pay.

Every year the taxpayers in our country foot the bill for the federal and state programs that provide housing, food, and education to illegal immigrants and their families. This tremendous burden has been placed on the backs of hard-working Americans by politicians who are only interested in keeping the flow of illegal immigrants coming into the country.

In exchange for carrying the burden of supporting millions of illegal immigrants, Americans have been given higher taxes, fewer jobs, and the nightmare of gangs like MS-13. These problems are just a few of the consequences that average Americans suffer.

It’s infuriating to see politicians push for destructive policies that promote illegal immigration while knowing that they themselves will never have to live in the communities which are negatively impacted. It’s time for Congress to honor the will of the people and fund Trump’s border wall.

After ‘Feminist’ Comedian Bullies Sarah Huckabee Calling Her Ugly to Her Face, Roseanne Knocks Her Out COLD

Published

By

AJR REPORTS: ROSEANNE BARR HAS HAD ENOUGH OF MICHELLE WOLF’S NASTY COMMENTS TOWARDS CONSERVATIVES AND DECIDED TO GIVE HER A FEW RULES OF COMEDY.

Michell Wolf was invited to the democrats White House Correspondent’s dinner to make the journalist laugh at the party. However, what started out as fun and laughter soon turned into criticism and lies.

Wolf’s initial attack was on Vice President Mike Pence and abortions. Michelle Wolf was joking about how everyone should try and have an abortion, and how you really got to knock the baby out of there… NOT FUNNY!

And this wasn’t even the most disgusting part of her attack. She then decided to bash two conservative women in Trump’s administration who were attending the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Ms. Wolf sure made herself look like a complete idiot in front of the entire White House. Roseanne Barr had the greatest comeback to Wolf’s jokes…

According to 100percentfedup:

First, she wished that a tree would land on White House Communications Director Kellyanne Conway:

“You guys gotta stop putting Kellyanne Conway on your shows. All she does is lie. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie.

It’s like that old saying, “If a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree? I’m not suggesting she gets hurt, just stuck.’”

Wolf saved some of her nastiest material, however, for White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, who was seated next to her at the podium:

“And of course, we have Sarah Huckabee-Sanders. We are graced with Sarah’s presence tonight. I have to say, I’m a little starstruck, I loved you as “Aunt Lydia” in “The Handmade’s Tale.” (laughter from the crowd) Mike Pence, if you haven’t seen it, you would love it.

I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s really resourceful. Like she burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s lies.

It’s probably lies.

I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee-Sanders? Is it Sarah-Sanders? Is it Sarah-Huckabee Sanders? Is it cousin Huckabee? Is it Aunti Huckabee-Sanders? Like, what’s Uncle Tom, but for white women who disappoint other white women? Oh, I know, ‘Aunt Coulter’.”

Surprisingly, some of the most biased journalists in the business expressed their disgust in Michelle Wolf’s “comedy act”.

Politco reporter Kyle Cheney got it right with this tweet:

Legendary female comedian, Roseanne Barr pointed out how liberals use women to attack and bully women, suggesting that the liberal press condoned Wolf’s embarrassing bullying of Sanders and Conway in front of a captive audience of liberal wolves. Barr tweeted: “they use women to attack and bully women.”

Johnny Argent used a great analogy about last nights vulgar comedian and the liberal journalists who clapped for her.

Barr then tweets the three rules of comedy. Although she didn’t address Wolf directly, it’s pretty clear who Barr’s three rules were meant for.

Here are Roseanne Barr’s three rules of comedy:
