Old media, democrats, and Hollywood wait with bated breath for James Comey to throw Trump under the bus at tomorrow’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. While this list does not even scratch the surface attempting to separate fake news from real news, the pattern exists: fake news (usually “unnamed sources” from the Washington Post and/or the NY Times) involves smearing Trump while the real news involves the Obama administration’s violation of the 4th amendment right of American citizens while alluding to the pay to play with which the Clintons have become synonymous in order to avoid reporting the truth. Use this info as you see fit when combating the Media Matters sanctioned spin/lies tomorrow.
Fact-“In a December 29, 2015 article, The Wall Street Journal described how the Obama administration had conducted surveillance on Israeli officials to understand how Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli officials, like Ambassador Ron Dermer, intended to fight the Iran Deal.”
Fact-“The FBI cleared Flynn of wrongdoing a month before the Trump dinner and Comey testified May 3rd he was never pressured regarding Russia. James Comey also alluded during testimony that Huma Abedin broke fed intelligence laws, the FBI was aware, yet did nothing. He also lied when he said the GOP was not affected.” Here is a link to the GOP emails leaked out during the 2016 campaign.
Fact-Reality Winner, the “leaker” arrested in early June, was arrested for the EXACT same action Hillary Clinton committed; however…. “At an unexpected press conference Tuesday morning, FBI Director James Comey announced that he would not be recommending charges to the Justice Department following an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email system… he has “reasonable confidence” there was no intentional misconduct on the part of Secretary Clinton herself. While Comey admitted that they did not find clear evidence of wrongdoing, “there is evidence,” that the Clinton staff was “extremely careless in their handling of classified information,” he continued, while discussing the findings of the investigation.”
Fact-“Comey led the team to free four Islamic terrorists. The men, Farouk Ali-Haimoud, Ahmed Hannan, Karim Koubriti, and Abdel Ilah Elmardoudi, were known as the “Detroit Terror Cell,” and were discovered by FBI agents in a house on Norman Street in Detroit after the 9/11 attacks. The men, most of them visa overstays or here illegally, were found when the FBI visited the last known Detroit residence of Nabil Al-Marabh, who was known as Osama Bin Laden’s assistant and was then on the top ten of the FBI’s Most Wanted List.
The four men had various plots in the planning stages, including poisoning water in Michigan and Ohio, blowing up cites in Disneyland and Vegas hotels (they had video surveillance of both), blowing up the U.S. Air Force base in Incirlik, Turkey from which American and Israeli military planes took off, and bombing the Queen Alia Hospital in Jordan. The terrorists’ video surveillance of Disneyland featured them singing about jihad and destroying America in the background. When agents raided their home, they found diagrams of the Incirlik base, including diagrams of U.S. AIWACS planes and Israeli F-16s and details of the order in which the American and Israeli planes took off. They also found a cheat sheet for the Commercial Driver’s License exam. The men trained for CDLs and HazMat hauling certificates through tax-funded job training at the Muslim-dominated ACCESS (the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services), to the tune of several thousand dollars.
Because of James Comey, all four of these men are now U.S. citizens. One of them, Karim Koubriti, is not only now a citizen, but he has that Commercial Driver’s License he was seeking, and he’s driving trucks all over America . . . thanks to James Comey.”
September 10, 2016 “Exposed: FBI Director James Comey’s Clinton Foundation Connection”
Fact-“Prior to his appointment to FBI Director, Comey worked at Lockheed Martin, and had since he left the Bush administration. It’s reported in Comey’s last year at the firm, he was paid $6M to serve as general counsel. Lockheed Martin is a major Clinton Foundation donor. It disclosed its membership to the Clinton Global Initiative in 2010, and won 17 approvals for state contracts under Hillary Clinton’s state department.
Fact-Comey has also been a board member, director, and Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member for London bank HSBC Holdings, which routinely partners with the Clinton Foundation on housing projects in the United States.
Fact-Peter Comey, his brother, served as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper. DLA Piper is the firm that performed the independent audit of the Clinton Foundation in November during Clinton-World’s first big push to put the email scandal behind them. DLA Piper’s employees taken as a whole represent a major Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign donation bloc and Clinton Foundation donation base. DLA Piper ranks #5 on Hillary Clinton’s all-time career Top Contributors list, just ahead of Goldman Sachs.”
November 6, 2016 “Can FBI Director James Comey Be Fired? 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know” NOTE: This was asked BEFORE the election regarding whether HILLARY could fire him. Answer? Yes.
“With Clinton clearly angry at Comey, if she wins the election and becomes president, will she fire him? If she tries — or requests his resignation — she will certainly face a considerable political backlash. But if she wants to hand Comey his pink slip, it appears that as president, she would be within her legal rights to do so.” Reasons given:
- Under the Law, Presidents May Fire FBI Directors
- Only One FBI Director Has Ever Been Fired
- Comey Defied Justice Department Rules — And Possibly Broke the Law
- Comey Himself Appeared to Question His Own Actions
- The Clinton Campaign Was Furious at Comey Over the Vague Letter
January 26, 2017 “Read the Confidential David Brock Memo Outlining Plans to Attack Trump”
Why do old media and Hollywood wait with bated breath, hoping that some “miracle” occurs? Their girl lost. With it, their power. As a result, they will watch and wait for their approved spin/talking points from the Soros funded Media Matters which was developed to destroy any media that does not push their agenda. “The memo contains plans for defeating Trump through impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat ‘government misinformation,’ ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat ‘fake news’.”
April 27, 2017 “Congress Asks Trump to Prosecute Clinton Private Server Team for Obstruction”
Fact-“The private internet company hired by former secretary of state Hillary Clinton to maintain her private email server has been obstructing a congressional investigation into its actions for more than a year, prompting a leading lawmakers to refer the case to the Trump administration’s Department of Justice for criminal prosecution.
‘The Committee is referring Mr. Treve Suazo, CEO of Platte River Networks, to the Department of Justice for prosecution under federal laws pertaining to failing to produce subpoenaed documents, making false statements to Congress regarding possession of documents, and obstructing Congress,’ Smith said in a statement.
‘Platte River Networks, a company hired by former Secretary Hillary Clinton, has deliberately withheld requested materials from the Committee and refused to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas,’ Smith alleged. ‘With a new administration in place, I am hopeful that the Department of Justice will appropriately respond to the referral. We cannot allow companies with valuable information to stonewall us in our oversight efforts’.”
Fact-“Big League Politics has learned that Larry Klayman, attorney for former NSA and CIA contractor and whistleblower Dennis Montgomery, delivered to the FBI 47 hard drives and data amounting to more than 600 million pages of documentation on the surveillance scheme. Then-FBI director James Comey’s general counsel James Baker took the data into his possession, according to multiple sources. But despite possessing Montgomery’s bombshell whistleblower revelations, Comey never acted on or publicized the information.
Additionally, Comey’s former firm Lockheed Martin granted entry to Montgomery to one of its facilities to help him work on the alleged mass surveillance program, which was allegedly overseen by Obama administration officials John Brennan and James Clapper and specifically targeted Trump.”
May 19, 2017 “Seven Problems with James Comey’s Credibility”
- Comey repeatedly failed to seek the recusal of Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch from the Hillary Clinton email probe despite his reported concerns about her partiality.
- Comey violated FBI tradition, bypassed the Justice Department and went rogue on several occasions in a manner that clearly impacted the 2016 presidential election.
- Comey made legal pronouncements about Clinton’s email case.
- Comey reportedly allowed Lynch to persuade him into publicly minimizing the FBI’s criminal investigation into Clinton’s email server.
- Comey denied leaking under oath — days before leaks from a one-on-one dinner with Trump.
- Comey was accused of mischaracterizing Huma Abedin’s role regarding emails found by the FBI on Anthony Weiner’s laptop
- Comey reportedly allowed the Obama administration to “shut down” a request to publicize the Russia probe last summer, raising questions about political motives.
May 26, 2017 “How Team Obama Tried to Hack the Election”
Fact-proof of actual hacking..by Obama-“New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials.
The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election.
Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated privacy protections while snooping through foreign intercepts involving US citizens — and failed to disclose the breaches, prompting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court a month before the election to rebuke administration officials.”
Fact-there was illegal surveillance…by the Obama admin-“A newly released court order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) found the Obama NSA routinely violated American privacy protections as his administration and officials scoured through overseas intercepts and targeted U.S. citizens.
The Obama administration failed to disclose the extent of the unlawful activity until just before the election in 2016. The FISA court ruling states the illegal searches conducted by the NSA under Obama were ‘widespread’ and created a ‘very serious Fourth Amendment issue’.”
“The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday issued seven new subpoenas in its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Four of the subpoenas are related directly to Russian meddling, which is also the subject of probes from the Senate Intelligence Committee and FBI.
The other three focus on allegations of improper ‘unmasking’ of Trump campaign officials, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Those three subpoenas went to the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency and are related to questions — primarily from Republicans — about how the names of associates of President Trump were un-redacted and distributed in classified Obama administration reports during the transition period.
Samantha Power, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, and former CIA Director John Brennan were given subpoenas as well.”
Fact-which means he lied-“Court records show that the Connecticut-based email storage company Datto handed over a “device” consisting of five or six disks to the FBI in October 2015. Insiders believe the device potentially contains every electronic communication that Hillary Clinton sent or received during her tenure as Secretary of State. James Comey spent his entire FBI investigation missing many Hillary Clinton emails and communications, according to the official version of events.
‘Platte River Networks subcontracted out to Datto which is a company in southwestern Connecticut. Datto backed up everything that was on Hillary Clinton’s server into their cloud, which is a series of servers,’ he said. He believes that the device also contains backups of her voicemails and Blackberry text messages.
‘They sent America on a wild goose chase,’ Kawa said.”
“The ‘private citizen’ excuse was considered unusual by the senators since numerous former government officials have testified before Congress in recent weeks.
They included former CIA Director John Brennan, former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates (who like Comey was fired by Trump) and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
And Comey himself is appearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee this week, raising senators’ fears he is “venue shopping” to avoid hard questions the Judiciary Committee is likely to ask about the FBI’s use of NSA surveillance data and conflicts between Comey’s past testimony and new evidence in the public domain.”
They’re hoping against hope. I hope they are set up for a Maddow Tax Return nothingburger-“The decision to break into regularly scheduled programming for a Congressional hearing is unusual for broadcasters, indicating the incredibly high level of public interest in what Comey may or may not say regarding his interactions with President Donald Trump. Comey is expected to address whether Trump tried to influence the FBI’s investigation of Russian influence into the 2016 election, including a probe of Michael Flynn, who resigned as Trump’s national security adviser in February. “
Fact-Comey lied-“A former U.S. intelligence contractor tells Circa he walked away with more than 600 million classified documents on 47 hard drives from the National Security Agency and the CIA, a haul potentially larger than Edward Snowden’s now infamous breach.
And now he is suing former FBI Director James Comey and other government figures, alleging the bureau has covered up evidence he provided them showing widespread spying on Americans that violated civil liberties.”
Press reports today claiming Reality Winner’s leaked NSA report shows vote machine hacking is false. These fakenews ignore the fact that the report claims attempts to phish voter registration outfits. This has not stopped the media from running with it, though. One wonders what they expect because if Comey lies, he perjures himself, if he pleads the 5th or refuses to answer, he looks guilty, and if he comes clean, the takes the whole House of Cards down with him. Combine that with the following quotes today and tomorrow looks very worrisome for democrats….I hope:
“Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said he was never ‘pressured’ into intervening in the FBI’s Russia probe. ‘I have never been pressured. I have never felt pressure to intervene or interfere in any way with shaping intelligence in a political way or in relationship to an ongoing investigation,’ Coats said at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday. Coats also added this zinger to the fake news media, “”I’ve been around long enough to not take everything at face value that’s printed in the Washington Post”.
In addition, “NSA director Mike Rogers said emphatically that he had ‘never been directed to do anything I believe to be illegal, immoral, unethical or inappropriate’”
There is no “there” there where Russia and Trump are concerned. Old media and democrats have not come to the realization that they cannot control their false narratives anymore. We’ve seen it time and again. Hopefully Comey’s performance on Thursday will be the final nail in their Russia obsession so that we can move onto Trump’s agenda…and prosecuting the Obama admin for the blatant violation of our rights.
