The Conservative Treehouse
This Reuters article is framed around Mexico making a surprise announcement they will support the U.S. steel tariff against China by shutting down the NAFTA back door on that specific trade segment…. However, the bigger story is Mexico’s admission/concession to the U.S. trade position that Canada and Mexico structure access to the U.S. market inside their trade deals with other nations.
With a Marxist about to win the July 1st election; and with certain nationalization of private industry soon to follow; and with free capital markets anticipating and responding by shifting investment into the U.S.; Mexico proposes to close the fatal flaw in NAFTA.

The American Spectator
According to the just released report by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrongfully caused sensitive law enforcement information to be leaked to the Wall Street Journal and then lied to investigators about having done so. The report runs thirty-five single spaced pages and lays out in excruciating, meticulous, and damning detail how McCabe authorized an anonymous leak calculated to make it appear that he had resisted pressure by Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department to close down the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation during the 2016 election campaign and then proceeded to cover his tracks with lies.
As spelled out by the OIG, McCabe’s troubles started on October 23, 2016, when the Wall Street Journal published an article by reporter Devlin Barrett stating that political action committees run by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and the Virginia Democratic Party (over which the article reported McAuliffe “exerts considerable control”) had donated almost $675,000 to the failed 2015 state senate campaign of McCabe’s wife. The article described McAuliffe as “an influential Democrat with long-standing ties to Bill and Hilary Clinton.” It stated that McCabe was an FBI official “who later helped oversee the investigation” into Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s use of an unsecured private email server.

I believe the spying on Donald Trump and a host of other Americans by the FBI, DOJ, CIA, DNC, Clinton Campaign and the Obama Administrationis the most serious scandal in the history of the United States. Before this is all said and done, it is going to be a watershed event in American history.
Spying on an opposition candidate in a Presidential election by leveraging the full power of the federal government agencies in a coordinated effort is unprecedented. I am firmly convinced, as is Dan Bongino, that this entire thing was a setup from the very beginning.
Of all the places on the Internet that I get information from, I have found Dan Bongino to be by far the most useful in helping me to understand the scope of this scandal. His podcasts are informative and entertaining, and he includes links each day with his podcast to various articles and opinion pieces from around the Internet.
These links encompass the political spectrum from far left to far right (and everything in between) and Dan Bongino includes them so that we can use the Left’s own words and opinions against them, and I think it works brilliantly.
These are links from Dan Bongino to sources all over the Internet (and to his website and podcasts) for shows from Episode 628 on January 8, 2018 where he began covering this issue in earnest.
NOTE: I know that FR can be very touchy (and often for good reason) about people pimping blogs, but I hope that this thread is both allowed and appreciated by the powers that be at Free Republic for the dissemination of information it can make possible. (And, it isn’t my blog). If I have crossed some threshold unknowingly, I hope that the Admin Mods will work with me to help fix it rather than removing the thread outright, as I have spent several hours working on this compilation.
