Trump is right -- He and his campaign were victims of a political attack by the Justice Department and FBI

Via Billy

Whatever the media and Democratic detractors say, the memo released by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee Friday that revealed how the FBI and Justice Departments abused their powers to spy on the Trump presidential campaign is breathtaking.

This kind of thing should not happen in America. Average Americans have not heard the last of this. They were betrayed.

In sum, President Trump was right. As he said in tweet Saturday morning: “This memo totally vindicates ‘Trump’ in probe. But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on.”

It turns out the much-maligned chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is one of the most daring whistleblowers in modern American history.

Comic strip artist Mort Walker, a World War II veteran who satirized the Army and tickled millions of newspaper readers with the antics of the lazy private “Beetle Bailey,” died Saturday. He was 94.

Walker died at his home in Stamford, Connecticut, said Greg Walker, his eldest son and a collaborator. His father’s advanced age was the cause of death, he said.

The Irrelevance of the FBI Memo.

The recently-released memo, which IMHO clearly shows we should start building gallows, will - in final impact - be irrelevant.  (I hope I'm wrong.)
There are too many people in this country so deep into the Left's tank they need Heliox deep-dive breathing gear.  The memo could have documentation that Obama himself was directing the entire thing, with sworn-in witnesses and even audio-visual proof, and it wouldn't matter.

Rep. Jim Jordan: We Need Second Special Counsel From ‘Middle of the Country, Outside the Swamp’

As one would expect, there’s been a huge partisan divide on the controversial Nunes memo that was publicly released yesterday. The memo purports to show FISA abuses in the Russia probe, specifically claiming that the Steele dossier was an “essential” basis for FISA warrants on ex-Trump campaign advisor Carter Page and that the judges approving the warrants weren’t told of the political motivations behind the dossier.

One of the biggest cheerleaders of #ReleaseTheMemo appeared on Fox & Friends this morning to hype the memo’s findings as a reason to discredit the Russia investigation but to also call on a second special counsel to investigate the “real” collusion involving Hillary Clinton and the FBI.

Anti-Trump Forces in Desperate Denial

Via Billy

Is it a crime for Trump to have considered shutting down Mueller? Why not? Who’s running the show, Trump or Mueller? Who was elected, Trump or Mueller? Who’s the chief executive, Trump or Mueller? “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.” Mueller’s boss is Trump. Why shouldn’t Trump be mulling over and considering firing a man or a group that’s intent on subverting a constitutional process? His oath demands nothing less. The power to fire subordinates is within the executive Power.

The anti-Trump press frantically denies reality. One panelist claims there is no such thing as a deep state. Another claims the 4-page memo is the product of a conspiracy theory.

The anti-Trump political faction is fighting the evidence of FBI complicity in a political plot against Trump. Schumer wrote a letter demanding that Rep. Nunes be removed as chair of the House Select Committee on Intelligence. When’s the last time a senator made such an absurd demand? Pelosi also seeks his ouster.

As Expected, Press Prostitutes Lie Through Their Teeth About House Intelligence Committee Report

The FBI, that is, the criminal organization that should be indicted for conspiracy against the United States, alleges falsely that “the memo omits key information that could impact its veracity.” It does not.

The House Intelligence Committee’s report on the FBI/DOJ deception of the FISA court has now been released. I have read the so-called “Nunes Memo.” As far as I can tell, the report from the House Intelligence Committee says exactly what the previously released Memorandum Opinion and Order from the FISA court itself says. I posted the court document — — and explanations of it — — and — .

The FISA court document, declassified and released, contains confessions from both the FBI and DOJ that the agencies misled the court and falsely acquired surveillance permission. The FBI and DOJ mischaracterize their deception of the court as “mistakes.” The agencies provide the court with improvements in their procedures so as not to make “mistakes” in the future.

Nunes Says Attacks From The Left Are ‘Quite Enjoyable’

California Rep. Devin Nunes said Friday that he relishes attacks from his Democratic counterparts and the mainstream media over his push to release a memo laying out FISA abuses at the FBI and Justice Department.

“It’s actually quite enjoyable because we have the underlying facts,” Nunes said in an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier.

NC: Sir Walter Wally: Spring will come soon


Raleigh’s resident groundhog popped out of his home early this morning to check the weather, only to find he couldn’t see his shadow.
According to ‘Sir Walter Wally’ an early spring is on the way.

Wally’s prediction runs counter to his cousin Phil in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.

There, Phil’s handlers said he saw his shadow this morning, meaning there would be six more weeks of winter.

What do you think — is winter here to stay or is spring on the way? Vote below.

“Casus Belli”

As the majority of the South, and Northern men trained at West Point in the years prior to the war, were educated to believe withdrawing from the Union was a proper remedy to which a State might peaceably resort to if its people determined in was in their best interest to do so. The war’s result determined that secession was not improper as a redress, but that superior military power could conquer and subjugate any State or States who resort to such obvious constitutional measures for redress. Excerpts from a mid-August 1879 address regarding secession by General J.R. Chalmers follows.
Bernhard Thuersam,   The Great American Political Divide

“Casus Belli”

“All we ask is an impartial statement in history of our cause, as we understood it; and it devolves on the survivors of the struggle to correct whatever we believe to be erroneous statements in regard to it, whenever and wherever they are made.

“The right to judge of infractions of the Constitution and the mode and measure of redress,” were no new questions in our politics. They were discussed in the conventions which formed the Constitution, and subsequently whenever the General Government was supposed, by usurpation of power, to infringe on rights reserved to the people of the States united.

Massachusetts threatened secession in the War of 1812, when her commerce was crippled; South Carolina threatened nullification in 1832, when a high protective tariff discriminated heavily against her interest.

Every State of the North practiced nullification against the fugitive slave laws as fast as they came under the control of the Republican party.

Eleven States of the South attempted to practice secession when the General Government fell into the hands of the Republican party, whose leaders had denounced the Constitution as “a covenant with the devil,” and the Union as a “league with hell.”

No honorable man can read the last speech of Jefferson Davis, in the United States Senate, or the letters of Sidney Johnston and Robert E. Lee, when about to resign their commissions in the United States army, and say that the Confederate leaders left the Union “from choice or on light occasion.”

They loved the Union formed of States united by the Constitution; they feared a Union consolidated in the hands of men who denounced the Constitution.

Mr. Lincoln and two-thirds of his party in Congress then denied any purpose to destroy slavery, but every Republican leader now shamelessly boast that this was the great object of the war.

The very fact that there was a war growing out of a question of constitutional rights, should be a source of pride, as evidence that no large body of our people will ignobly submit to what they believe to be a violation of their rights.”

(Forrest and his Campaigns, Gen. J.R. Chalmers, Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume VII, Broadfoot Publishing, 1990, excerpts pp. 451-452)

UPS Goes All in for Trump Tax Plan With $12 Billion Dollar Program for America

Via Billy

During his 2016 campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump jokingly warned his supporters that they may eventually grow “tired of winning” once his pro-growth business and tax policies were put in place.

Following the series of incredible announcements regarding investments and employee bonuses from a host of different companies after tax reform was passed into law, we feel compelled to ask: Have you grown tired yet?

According to Breaking 911, the latest such announcement came from the United Parcel Service, better known as UPS, who just revealed a total investment of about $12 billion in their business and employees, and they specifically credited Trump’s tax reform as the basis for it.

Nunes: House panel looking at State Dept. involvement in Russia probe 

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) revealed Friday that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee would examine other agencies, including the State Department, after releasing a controversial memo alleging surveillance abuses.

Speaking on Fox News just hours after Republicans on the committee released a memo alleging surveillance abuses by the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ), Nunes said the panel was moving to "phase two" of its investigation.

"We are in the middle of what I call phase two of our investigation, which involves other departments, specifically the State Department and some of the involvement that they had in this," Nunes said.

"That investigation is ongoing and we continue work towards finding answers and asking the right questions to try to get to the bottom of what exactly the State Department was up to in terms of this Russia investigation."

Louie Gohmert: Ohr, Comey Could Be Held In Contempt Of Court For Misrepresentations

A FISA court judge has grounds to hold Department of Justice officials including Bruce Ohr in contempt of court for making misrepresentations about the sources of information used to obtain a surveillance warrant against a Trump associate, a former judge and Republican congressman said.

“I think it’s important to know who the FISA judge was, and why with all the info he’s had for some time, he has not put anyone in jail for committing fraud on his court,” Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican who serves on the Committee on the Judiciary, told The Daily Caller News Foundation Friday.

“You shouldn’t be able to get quotes from Bruce Ohr or [former FBI Director Jim] Comey or [deputy director Andrew] McCabe because they ought to be sitting in jail for committing fraud upon the court,” he said.

Zimbabwe issues 99-year leases to remaining white farmers

Via Nancy


Zimbabwe's remaining white farmers will now get 99-year land leases according to a new government policy that marks a dramatic change from widespread evictions of whites from farms.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa is breaking away from the seizure of thousands of white-owned farms carried out by his predecessor and mentor Robert Mugabe, who resigned in November under military pressure. The new policy will give remaining white farmers new security from expropriations.

The lands ministry has instructed its provincial officers that the policy should be implemented "with immediate effect," according to a copy of the directive seen by The Associated Press.

Mr. Mnangagwa's move has been welcomed by many white farmers, who see it as a step toward restoring their involvement in Zimbabwe's agriculture.

16 Bombshells in the Nunes Memo the Media Do Not Want You to Know About

Via comment by Average Joe on  7 biggest takeaways from the FISA memo that was ju...

 Yes, there was collusion with the Russians, and those in our government currently investigating Trump in the hopes of overturning a presidential election are the colluders.

In its partisan zeal to protect the ongoing witch hunt against President Trump, our Nixonian media went into hyper-drive last week to ensure that the unethical and un-American behavior of President Obama’s FBI and Justice Department remained covered up from the public. After this cynical effort failed with the release of the Nunes memo Friday, the media quickly switched tactics and is now working feverishly to muddy the waters about the horror show revealed in the memo.

To begin with, it is obvious that a hysterical talking point about declaring the release of the memo a “Constitutional Crisis” has been spread far and wide… Naturally, the “constitutional crisis” in question is not the wrongdoing committed by federal law enforcement. Instead, because we are now deep within the head of the media’s fabricated reality where wrong is right and up is down, the “constitutional crisis” is that government wrongdoing was uncovered.

One way the media are hoping to shield the federal government from accountability for its indefensible lies, cover-ups, and civil rights violations is to muddy the waters; to distract us with nonsense so that we lose focus on the sins committed by an FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) that abused its power and public trust in unprecedented ways.

Here are 16 things the media do not want you to know about the Nunes memo:

More @ Breitbart

Here is what we know so far....
If you put all the pieces together here's what you get. The DNC rigs the Democratic Primary Election against Bernie Sanders so Hillary can win the nomination. Obama's administration starts to request surveillance on Trump, his family, his transition team, and anyone associated with him. Donna Brazile gives Hillary the debate questions to make her pre-prepared answers sound more intelligent.

 The DNC pays Christopher Steele to come up with a salacious smear dossier about Trump.It is rejected as phony by every credible news organization. The FBI, under James Comey, later uses it as a way to falsely obtain FISA court warrants to conduct KGB-style surveillance of all Trump campaign figures and operations, before and after the election. The DNC-controlled mainstream media releases a taped conversation a few weeks before the election about Trump talking about grabbing women 'parts,' hoping to put the nail in Trumps' election coffin. It fails to do so, because even after all this, Trump still easily wins the General Election, 304 to 227.

Obama secretly orders an investigation into Russia 'meddling' in our elections. Obama changes Executive Order 12333 in order to allow many more federal agencies to have access to the Trump surveillance data. This is to inspire leaks to the press from as many sources as possible.  The Democrat Party then comes up with a fake scandal that "Trump Colluded with Russia to win the election" with no evidence, let alone proof. This wild claim is then backed up by the mainstream media allies of Obama and the DNC. The MSM goes All Trump, All Negative, All the time, hoping to mischaracterize the newly elected president and meets success in their effort sot make him unpopular through a steady stream of Fake News.   Obama holdovers start unmasking and spying on Trump's transition team and staff members; illegally leaking the classified information to their cooperating mainstream media allies.


Because the DNC and the Obama administration colluded with the intelligence community to thwart Trump's campaign efforts that got him elected president. All this Russia collusion illusion delusion is an attempt to cover up the fact that the Obama administration, the intelligence community, the DNC, along with the mainstream media,  used our nation's surveillance apparatus as a political tool to try to get Hillary elected President and failing that, they start an investigation of a non-crime, hoping to find something upon which they can make an impeachment claim. This makes Watergate, which was a one time break-in at the DNC office, look like kindergarten play.

Let that sink in......
