If the House Intel Committee found ANY evidence of collusion, Schiff would have leaked it already

The House Intelligence Committee has ended the Russian collusion probe and concludes that there is no evidence that there was any collusion.

Republicans who control the House Intelligence Committee ended an investigation into the 2016 presidential election over intense objections from Democrats, saying they found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian operatives.

The committee’s GOP leaders announced their decision on Monday, adding that they plan to release a report soon on their findings. The probe — originally intended to be bipartisan — is ending even though an inquiry by Special Counsel Robert Mueller remains underway and at least four people connected to the president’s campaign are facing criminal charges.

A draft summary of what the Republicans say will ultimately be a final report agrees with assessments by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia conducted cyberattacks on American political institutions and sought to sow discord through social media, but not with their conclusion that the campaign was carried out to help Trump.

“After more than a year, the committee has finished its Russia investigation and will now work on completing our report,” the chairman, Devin Nunes of California, said in a statement. “Once the committee’s final report is issued, we hope our findings and recommendations will be useful for improving security and integrity for the 2018 midterm elections.”

Predictably, democrats whined:

The pieces fall into place. All the Russian dossier roads lead right to Hillary Clinton


Flopping Aces


Last night another shoe dropped in the Russian “collusion” mystery which largely completed the puzzle of the dossier.

We learned of the massive financial tie between Alexander Downer and the Clinton’s:

Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website.

Downer and former President Clinton jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding in February 2006 that spread out the grant money over four years for a project to provide screening and drug treatment to AIDS patients in Asia.

Sounds very nice on its face, but it was mishandled.

The materials Smith is giving the FBI focus on a 2006 memorandum of understanding between the Australian government and the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton HIV/AIDs Initiative (CHAI). Smith claims the foundation received a “$25M financial advantage dishonestly obtained by deception” as a result of actions by Bill Clinton and Downer, who was then Australia’s minister of foreign affairs.

Also included in the Smith materials are evidence he believes shows “corrupt October 2006 backdating of false tender advertisements purporting to advertise the availability of a $15 million contract to provide HIV/AIDS services in Papua New Guinea on behalf of the Australian government after an agreement was already in place to pay the Clinton Foundation and/or associates.”

A third complaint concerns what Smith describes as “the $10 million financial advantage dishonestly obtained by deception between April 1, 2008, and Sept. 25, 2008, at Washington, D.C., New York, New York, and Canberra Australia involving an MOU between the Australian government, the “Clinton Climate Initiative,” and the purported “Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute Inc.”

You’ll remember that Downer is the person who tipped off his government about his meeting with George Papadopoulos in a London bar in 2016 that democrats, who used to claim that the Russian dossier was everything, now assert that the meeting between these two was the spark for the Russian investigation. Oddly, the FBI did not disclose any of it.

Downer, now Australia’s ambassador to London, provided the account of a conversation with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos at a London bar in 2016 that became the official reason the FBI opened the Russia counterintelligence probe.

But lawmakers say the FBI didn’t tell Congress about Downer’s prior connection to the Clinton Foundation. Republicans say they are concerned the new information means nearly all of the early evidence the FBI used to justify its election-year probe of Trump came from sources supportive of the Clintons, including the controversial Steele dossier.

This disclosure completes what The Hill reporter Alison Spann called the “four pillars” supporting the Russian dossier

Christopher Steele: Paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC and who paid Kremlin operatives for the dirt on Trump

(Steele shopped the dossier to numerous journalists in the summer of 2016 after calling his buddies in the Kremlin for dirt on Trump. He ever went to Russia for the information)

Michael Isikoff: Wrote the Yahoo article based on the information fed to him be Steele.

Sid Blumenthal: Fed information to Christopher Steele via the Bruce Ohr at the obama State Department.

Alexander Downer: Now tied directly to the Clinton’s

It is also very curious that Downer just happened to sit next to Papadopoulos at the very same London bar and strike up a conversation about Hillary’s emails. What are the odds?

All of the information in the dossier ties directly to the Clinton’s. The circle closes. One has to wonder- were the Russians even involved at all?

Let’s add one more part- the Clinton’s bought Andrew McCabe and compromised him earlier.

You have to say this about the Clinton’s – they invest well.

It wasn’t the collusion that started the investigation, it was concern that someone really had her emails

The story we’ve all been handed from the democrats is that the investigation into Trump is about collusion with Russia. There is not a shred of evidence to support that contention but that hasn’t stopped democrats from repeating it. But what if that’s only a cover story?

One of the early targets of the Russia accusation is Carter Page. Page is frequently called an idiot, but he is anything but and idiot:

Page graduated in 1993 from the United States Naval Academy; he was a Distinguished Graduate (top 10% of his class) and was chosen for the Navy’s Trident Scholar program, which gives selected officers the opportunity for independent academic research and study.[10][11][12] During his senior year at the Naval Academy, he worked as a researcher for the House Armed Services Committee.[13] He served in the Navy for five years, including a tour in western Morocco as an intelligence officer for a United Nations peacekeeping mission.[13] In 1994, he completed a master of arts degree in National Security Studies at Georgetown University.[13

His efforts for Donald Trump have resulted in a non-stop colonoscopy for Page. He has been accused of being a spy. ABC said that the Russians tried to recruit him- unsuccessfully- but that hasn’t stopped media outlets from asserting that he ‘was recruited” by Russia.

I had a discussion with a liberal who insisted that Page was a Russian agent but called it ‘capitalism” when Bill Clinton visited Putin’s home and walked away with $500,000 the next day, but that’s how discussions with liberals go.

The thing is, Page has been under surveillance by US intelligence agencies since 2014. That obviously has netted nothing as Page remains a free man untouched by the Mueller probe. Without a doubt, the obama regime knows everything Page knows.

North Korea has new allies- the media and the democrat party


Flopping Aces

Look at that face- the face of panic. The face of sheer terror. Be afraid. Be very afraid. It’s what the media wants.

It’s as though every morning the left (press included) wakes up and has no memory of the previous day’s events. Or the previous weeks or months either. Every day is a new day. There is no such thing as history, especially where Donald Trump is concerned. And you can no longer tell where the media ends and the democrat party begins.

This morning on Good Morning America Martha Raddatz started off with a breathless, frightened, panicky warning about Donald Trump and his inflammatory rhetoric toward North Korea. She insinuated that Trump started all the conflict with NK. The world is “reeling.” It was a “dramatic escalation in rhetoric.” It was all due to his mouth. You can watch the fright fest here. Raddatz went off the rails when she claimed that North Korea was planning to target Guam. That is inaccurate. The NK plan is allegedly to drop ballistic missiles into the waters around Guam as a “crucial warning.” They are not targeting the island as Raddatz states. The report then shows a video clip of the Governor of Guam saying any threat to or attack on Guam is one upon the United States. What GMA left out completely was the Governor saying that were Guam attacked, he’d want Trump as the President:

This election shows us how badly the country is divided, but Donald Trump did not divide it.


It’s 2009. An election took place. There was a peaceful transition of power. barack obama was inaugurated. A lot of us were unhappy with the outcome of the election but we sucked it up. We did not protest.


We did not riot. We did not burn property.


We did not destroy businesses, and there no end to the irony in the vandalizing of a Starbucks.


We did not immediately rip into the President’s kids, as did this SNL writer.


We did not have nervous breakdowns

We did not need inauguration day safe spaces


We did not need juice boxes and Legos


The difference between 2009 and 2017 is stark. This country is divided like it has not been in a long time. People feel free to do stupid things. People feel free to act like idiots. They feel free to destroy the property of others. They feel free to disrupt the lives of others. They’ve become a**holes. What was it about the last eight years that led to this? From Brendan O’Neil on Facebook:


It happened because you banned super-size sodas. And smoking in parks. And offensive ideas on campus. Because you branded people who oppose gay marriage ‘homophobic’, and people unsure about immigration ‘racist’. Because you treated owning a gun and never having eaten quinoa as signifiers of fascism. Because you thought correcting people’s attitudes was more important than finding them jobs. Because you turned ‘white man’ from a description into an insult. Because you used slurs like ‘denier’ and ‘dangerous’ against anyone who doesn’t share your eco-pieties. Because you treated dissent as hate speech and criticism of Obama as extremism. Because you talked more about gender-neutral toilets than about home repossessions. Because you beatified Caitlyn Jenner. Because you policed people’s language, rubbished their parenting skills, took the piss out of their beliefs. Because you cried when someone mocked the Koran but laughed when they mocked the Bible. Because you said criticising Islam is Islamophobia. Because you kept telling people, “You can’t think that, you can’t say that, you can’t do that”. Because you turned politics from something done by and for people to something done to them, for their own good. Because you treated people like shit. And people don’t like being treated like shit. Trump happened because of you.

By the way, which democrat denounced the violence taking place in DC and around the country? No one.

Which President called for peace during the transition? I must have missed it.

This country is divided, but Donald Trump did not divide this country. He is inheriting a badly divided one- he is inheriting the obama legacy.

Now about that irony:


Corrupt CIA feeds crooked media

Renew America

By Cliff Kincaid


Isn’t it strange how the left suddenly finds the CIA to be a worthwhile organization now that it has been turned into a weapon against Trump?

We need congressional investigations into the politicization of the CIA under John Brennan, whose claim to fame has been bringing sexual “diversity” to the agency. Perhaps he should have been doing his job, which is to defend the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Reuters reports, “The overseers of the U.S. intelligence community have not embraced a CIA assessment that Russian cyber attacks were aimed at helping Republican President-elect Donald Trump win the 2016 election, three American officials said on Monday.” Reuters reported that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (or ODNI) “does not dispute the CIA’s analysis of Russian hacking operations,” but “it has not endorsed their assessment because of a lack of conclusive evidence that Moscow intended to boost Trump.”

All of this flatly contradicts the fake news story in the New York Times that the CIA judgment on Russia was built on a “swell of evidence.” It is evidence not seen by other intelligence agenies and the FBI. Even the CBS Evening News reports that the “FBI has not concluded its investigation into this, but so far it is not siding with the CIA.”

You’re Never Gonna Get the Smell Out


American Thinker

By Jon N. Hall


As America nears the end of the Obama times, one wonders how such a person could ever have become the Leader of the Free World. Americans haven’t been this divided since the Vietnam War. Obama deserves much of the credit for this sad state of affairs, as he has cynically played Americans off against each other. But voters ate up his pabulum about “hope and change,” as though the only other items on the menu were doom and inertia.

I feel bad for African Americans. The first nominally “black” president has proved to be a flop in so many areas. I’d imagine black folks are relieved that Obama is only half black and that his black half is not of “slave stock.” (You’ve been saying America needs a conversation on race, right.) Some black folks might even make the argument that America still hasn’t had a truly black president.

The election of Barack Hussein Obama tells us a great deal about the American electorate. Rather than voting for an authentic hero who suffered and sacrificed for his country, America opted for the “cool” candidate. When told by ABC’s Charlie Gibson that there’s a good deal of evidence that raising tax rates results in lower tax revenue, Obama said he would raise them anyway, for the sake of “fairness.” If White Boy spouted such nonsense he’d be laughed out of town.
