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:

Syria’s use of chemical weapons should frighten you about obama’s deal with Iran


Image via conservativedailypost.com


Christopher Kozak, a Syria analyst at the Institute for the Study of War, agreed the strike was a necessary development toward reestablishing U.S. deterrence, but stressed that the administration needs to persist in deterrent measures to reap lasting results.

“The key point is that outside actors are going to be perceiving that this is a world where the U.S. and the White House will be willing to use military force in order to assert itself in a way that the U.S. has not been doing for quite some time now,” Kozak said in an interview.

“But if this isn’t followed through with a larger strategy to achieve our national security objectives, if it’s not followed through with sustained pressure on Assad and his backers, then it really accomplishes little and may even be counterproductive depending on the reactions its provokes from other actors,” he added.

Kozak and Schanzer emphasized the need for the administration to take on Syria with a two-pronged strategy that addresses both the Islamic State and the Assad regime. Kozak said the administration will fail in its fight against ISIS unless it deploys diplomatic and military action to strike a negotiated settlement between the Syrian government and rebel groups.

Even Fareed Zakaria was impressed:

Trump’s actions also brought out the mental illness in democrats. Lawrence O’Donnell went off the rails:

O’Donnell said, “[W]ouldn’t it be nice if it was just completely, totally, absolutely impossible to suspect that Vladimir Putin orchestrated what happened in Syria this week so that his friend in the White House could have a big night, with missiles, and all of the praise he’s picked up over the last 24 hours? Wouldn’t it be so nice if you couldn’t even in your wildest dreams imagine a scenario like that?”

Another idiot democrat (but I repeat myself) suggested that Trump might have been distracting from his collusion with Putin by destroying tens of millions of dollars in Putin’s assets. You can’t make this stuff up.

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:


obama would not shut off internet to ISIS, but had no problem shutting off Assange’s internet


Flopping Aces

Seems pretty simple, doesn’t it?

ISIS recruits new members in no small part via the internet. So why don’t we simply just shut off the internet to ISIS? No, we can’t do that, says obama’s FCC:

“Isn’t there something we can do under existing law to shut those Internet sites down?” Barton asked. “And I know they pop up like weeds, but once they do pop up, shut them down and turn the Internet addresses over to the appropriate law enforcement agencies to try and track them down.”

“We cannot underestimate the challenge,” FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler responded. “I’m not sure our authority extends to [shut down the websites], but I do think there are specific things we can do.”

Wheeler similarly told Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) that the commission does not have the authority to target the social media accounts of gang leaders in the United States that are contributing to urban violence.

“We do not have jurisdiction over Facebook and all the other edge providers. We do not intend to assert jurisdiction over them,” Wheeler said.

But the chairman said he can use the FCC’s bully pulpit to press tech CEOs on the issue, such as Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg.

“I will call Mark Zuckerberg this afternoon to raise the issue you’ve raised and the issue Mr. Barton raised. And I’m sure he is concerned as well and he’ll have some thoughts,” Wheeler said.

Many major social media companies have abuse policies that prohibit and remove accounts that are flagged for promoting terrorism or violence.

Wheeler offered other areas where the commission could take action. He specifically mentioned the rash of vandalism to fiberoptic cables in the California Bay Area.

Local news outlets have reported on cuts to private fiberoptic cables owned by major telecom companies such as AT&T that provide the backbone of Internet service. AT&T has offered a quarter million dollar reward for information about the attacks.

While law enforcement has the authority to investigate the crimes, the FCC maintains a confidential reporting system that requires various telecommunications carriers to report outages around the country.

No, obama won’t shut off the internet to the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa because they have “rights”:
