Graham: FBI Surveillance of Trump Campaign Turned Into a ‘Criminal Conspiracy’

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) responded to the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report released on Monday by saying the FBI should have halted their investigation into President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign when it saw that a dossier compiled by a former British spy was phony.

“I believe there will be no debate among reasonable-minded people … about how the system not only got off the rails but, in my view, became a criminal enterprise to defraud the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] court to deny American citizen Carter Page his constitutional rights and to continue an operation against President Trump as president of the United States that I think was fundamentally flawed and unlawful,” Graham said during a press conference on Monday.

Page was a former Trump campaign associate who was placed under surveillance four separate times for a total of 12 months.

Revealed: The Secretive Strategy Behind the Transgender Assault on Parental Rights

Via Billy

a boy holds up cut outs of a man and a woman, looking confused as he chooses between them.

Last week, a British journalist unearthed a document laying out the transgender movement's secretive strategy to seize control of governments, undermine parental rights, and target children for dangerous experimental drugs that lead to sterilization and genital mutilation. The document lays out a three-pronged strategy to victimize children when they are far too young to understand the ramifications of any hormone "treatment" or surgery.

As the Spectator's James Kirkup revealed, transgender activists attack parental rights by getting ahead of the government agenda, tying their issue to more popular movements to create a "veil of protection," and working in secret to "keep press coverage to a minimum." In this way, they use their status as a minority to manipulate the government into enacting policies that would be opposed by the majority.

Front Porch Braggin’ Rights


My new neighbor Ozzie, who grew up in the Bronx, thinks that the South is a place “without much culture.”  Ozzie acts as if he is an expert on the subject, even though his Southern experience has been confined to living in the D.C. suburbs for a few years before retiring out here to the Blue Ridge Mountains last year.

(It should be noted that Ozzie’s real name is “Osgood”, but he is very sensitive about that fact being public knowledge. Don’t tell anybody…)

Both of Obama’s Top Intelligence Officers, FBI Director James Comey and CIA Director John Brennan, Voted for Communists While the Cold War Against Communism Was Raging

Via Wes

The heads of Obama’s FBI and CIA voted for Communists during the Cold War, yet were able to move up the ranks within the same US intelligence community that, for decades, claimed to oppose Communism. Here at Need to Know, we missed this story when it was first published a few months ago, but it needs to be known and in the record. Former FBI  Director James Comey admitted in a 2003 interview that he voted Communist before voting for Jimmy Carter in 1980. Comey added that he did not know how to classify himself politically. Former CIA Director John Brennan said that, in 1976, he voted for Gus Hall, the Communist Party candidate for President. This fact did not hinder him from becoming head of the CIA afterward [This will not be shocking to anyone who understands that there is no significant difference in the ideological beliefs of Communists, Fascists, Nazis, Socialists and other variants of collectivism, and that collectivism is the dominant  ideology of both major political parties today.] -GEG

U.S. Attorney John Durham: ‘We Do Not Agree’ with Inspector General Conclusion

 john durham

U.S. Attorney John Durham said Monday that the Department of Justice did not agree with the Inspector General report into the investigation of President Donald Trump’s political campaign.

“Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” Durham said in a statement sent to reporters after the release of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report.

Jobs report delivers ‘stellar’ news — so why do Dems want to impeach Trump?

 Jobs report delivers ‘stellar’ news — so why do Dems want to impeach Trump?

“Stellar.” “Blowout.” “Blockbuster.” That’s how even left-leaning analysts described Friday’s stunning jobs report.

The US economy continues to steam ahead under President Trump, despite a global slowdown — with big gains for Main Street, not just Wall Street. The only ones in denial: Democrats, who are bidding to undo Trump’s work.

The good news included not just employment rising far above expectations, but a bump in median earnings, too.

Historic Profile: Eugene Stoner

a photo of eugene stoner and mikhail kalashnikov

The Eugene Stoner designed Armalite Rifle AR-15 is the most popular rifle design in the US today. Popular for its modularity and performance, it has become a polarizing figure in the media on both sides of the aisle. If the mainstream media is to be believed, the ‘AR’ in AR15 stands for “assault rifle.” Rolling your eyes yet? Such futile journalistic assumptions lead to images of the rifle being developed by a faceless, nameless, government agency in a lab. Thankfully, with a little research, we know that’s not the case. 

The individual talent and insight funneled into a product with over six decades of national and personal service is still astonishing. This ingenuity and design isn’t traced back to a bureaucratic committee, but to the mind of Eugene Morrison Stoner. If you’ve ever held an AR-15 rifle in your hands, he’s the man to thank for it. At the time, many saw it as a .22 caliber pop-gun trying to replace the venerable M14. However, the AR-15 became an American institution. The modularity and the economy of the caliber it uses is nothing compared to its celebrity status. Television, film and cultural lore have kept it at the forefront of military and then civilian use since 1964.

Reply to: California Asks Trump Administration to Release Money to Fight Homelessness

RalphDeScoville sounds off on California wailing for mo' gubbamint money to enable its degeneracy.

Washington and Oregon: you're in for a rude awakening too, come post-election. Might be a good idea to up your game now, because the summer months immediately preceding the election will likely be rough. And don't worry none about Virginia, they can take care of their own. Organization, planning and intelligence is key.

"California: You made your bed (or sleeping bag as it were), now sleep in it. The state’s constitution is a laughing stock as is its politics and policies. It has adopted policies and laws that attract freeloaders, illegal aliens, drunks and drug addicts. Even were that not the case, the state would need to be more aggressive for the simple matter of its climatology. If you’re going to be out on the street, better to do so in 60 degree weather with sunshine than 20 degrees and sleet.

This is the state that sends to Washington clowns like Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, and Adam Shiff, aka Barney Google. Nope, you got your share at the HUD trough, more than your share really, work the rest out for yourselves. New York actually leads the nation in homeless, but you don’t hear them wailing about it to the extent you do California, which acts like nothing so much as a spoiled, petulant teenager whose credit card was taken away. But you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. 332 days to November 4th, 2020; right around the corner. The gloves will be coming off then."

Portland Wants Private Property Owners To Add ‘Mandatory Rest Spaces’ For The Homeless

 ORTLAND, OR - FEBRUARY 11: A homeless man sleeps on a downtown roadway overpass on February 11, 2012 in Portland, Oregon. Portland has embraced its national reputation as a city inhabited by weird, independent people, as underscored in the dark comedy IFC TV show "Portlandia." (Photo by George Rose/Getty Images)

Portland, Oregon, like many other notably “blue” cities, is not immune to a growing homelessness problem. Like San Francisco, California, and Seattle, Washington, Portland is overrun with people sleeping rough, many of whom suffer from drug addiction and mental illness.

The Culpeper Minutemen Flag: The History of the Banner Flown by a Militia of Patriots

The Culpeper Minutemen Flag: The History of the Banner Flown by a Militia of Patriots

The Culpeper Flag is often mistaken as a modern variation of the iconic “Don’t Tread On Me” Gadsden Flag – and rightly so. What many don’t know is that the Culpeper Flag was inspired by its Gadsden counterpart, and both have become touchstones of the Second Amendment Movement.
While remarkably similar to its Gadsden relative, the flag of the Culpeper Minutemen is arguably cooler – and significantly more obscure. While it has the same coiled rattlesnake and “Don’t Tread on Me” legend, the Culpeper Flag is white, it carries the additional motto “Liberty or Death,” and when historically correct, a banner bearing the name of the Culpeper Minutemen.

DOJ IG: FISA Application for Spy Warrants Against Trump Official Riddled with Errors


Well, it’s dropped. The report from the Department of Justice Inspector General’s Office on FISA abuses against the Trump campaign during the Obama administration has dropped. The Federal Bureau of Investigation was ripped for deviating from department policy concerning the application process. The FBI used the unverified Trump dossier, which was a Democrat-funded opposition research project. The Hillary Clinton campaign hired research firm Fusion GPS, who then contracted ex-MI6 spook Christopher Steele to compile the document. It’s riddled with inaccuracies. And it’s the work that set off this Russian collusion nuke in the media. It was a myth.

The Pearl Harbor Ni’ihau Incident: And Origins Of Ruger’s .22 Pistol


Elizabeth McHutcheson was a hearty woman of Scottish descent cursed with a terminal case of wanderlust. She married a ship’s captain named Francis Sinclair and eventually produced six children. Elizabeth moved her family to New Zealand and established a farm. However, her husband and eldest son were later lost at sea along with most of the family’s possessions.

My prediction thread the night before Horowitzmas:

Via Iver

1) The report proves unverified Steele Dossier allegations were used to get the FISA warrant on Carter Page, blowing up 2 years worth of DNC Media & Democrat's strident denials it was.
2) Peter Strzok was the lead agent in the case, the one who's name has been redacted all this time.


Not only was the LEAD AGENT in the PERJURY case against Flynn investigated & then FIRED from the FBI for misconduct, he's also the lead agent in the Page investigation.
