Donald Trump Insults White House Press Corps. by Ordering Them ‘Out’

Over the weekend, you couldn’t read a major news site without encountering journalists screaming that Trump was a racist for the comments, despite the fact that every American has said the exact same thing at some point in their life.

It’s obnoxious behavior, but it’s par for the course for the contemporary media. The press has long given up the veil of impartiality and revealed itself to be partisan mouthpiece of the Democratic Party. That truth couldn’t be more apparent in all the fake reporting going on around Trump, whether it’s through publishing fake scoops or using fake pictures to slander President Trump.

Alex Jones Exposed

Very detailed,lots of links. Here is a sample.

8. – Alex Jones’ parents David Jones and Carol Hamman have been employed by the C.I.A. in the past. Alex Jones’ deceased uncle Bill Hamman was employed by the C.I.A. and U.S. Army Special Forces. Alex Jones’ cousin Verna Grayce Chao is currently employed as a C.I.A. contractor by Dell (previously by IBM). Alex Jones’ other cousin Buckley Hamman was one of the original founders of Infowars in 1995. Thus there is only one degree of separation between Alex Jones and the Central Intelligence Agency.

Putin Plot? Democrats Ridiculed For Claiming Moscow Behind Chelsea Manning's Senate Run

House Expands Hillary Clinton Email Probe – Will Question FBI Director’s Chief of Staff

Why hasn’t Hillary Clinton been prosecuted for sending and disseminating highly classified materials on a home email server? We’re about to get answers, as Clinton faces serious legal issues.

The FBI chief of staff and senior counselor to Director Christopher Wray will meet with the House Oversight Committee on Thursday. And Republicans on the Committee are ready to demand real answers.

The House Oversight Committee, through a spokesperson, has confirmed Jim Rybicki will testify as part of their investigation into Obama’s Department of Justice probe into Clinton’s illegally operated private home email server. That initial investigation led to former FBI Director James Comey quickly announcing, in the heat of the 2016 presidential race, there would be no criminal charges filed against the former Secretary of State and Democratic nominee, despite overwhelming evidence of wrongdoing.

FBI Probe Into Russian Uranium Bribes Concealed By Obama DOJ; Mueller, McCabe, Rosenstein Involved

According to the indictment, Lambert and others at Transport Logistics International (TLI) engaged in several counts of bribery, kickbacks and money laundering with Russian nuclear official Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure business advantages with TENEX - a subsidiary of Rosatom, the Kremlin's state-owned energy company which bought Uranium One.

TLI would have ostensibly transported all of the uranium from the U1 deal, were it not for an FBI undercover mole buried deep within the Russian nuclear industry who gathered extensive evidence of corruption.

What many don't realize is that Lambert's Friday indictment is not the first linked to the Uranium One deal.

FBI 'Should Feel Embarrassed' by Its Russian Meddling Claims –Ex-CIA Analyst

Speaking to Radio Sputnik about his explosive, detailed and documented but broadly overlooked investigation into how US intelligence agencies, not Russia, were the ones trying to meddle in the 2016 US presidential race, retired CIA officer-turned political activist Ray McGovern outlined why changing Americans' minds on the matter is so difficult.

McGovern's report, which came out last week, provided new, documented proof on some of the ways US intelligence officers attempted to interfere in the 2016 election, and on how pro-Clinton FBI staffers now involved in the Trump-Russia collusion investigation worked to try to immunize former Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton from crimes including lying to the FBI and endangering state secrets.

U.S. Creates Kurdish/Terrorist “Border Force” In Syria To Define Borders Of Kurdistan

By Brandon Turbeville

For those that hoped Trump would bring a more sensible approach to the Western-induced Syrian crisis, it is almost for certain that those hopes have been officially dashed with the revelation of the Trump administration’s new policy regarding the SDF, Kurds, a new border force, and the logical partitioning plan that is obviously moving forward.

The new plans announced by the United States involve the creation of a “border force” that is expected to contain around 30,000 personnel to be deployed at the borders controlled by the SDF (Syria Democratic Forces). The force will be trained by the United States and will contain members from the SDF and YPG and will see Kurdish members patrolling “Kurdish areas” while Arab members patrol “Arab areas.”...

Ex-CIA Officer: Deep State Is ‘TERRIFIED’ Of Trump And ‘Want Him TAKEN OUT’

Kevin Shipp, a former top CIA officer, says that Donald Trump is rattling the deep state to the point that they’ve demanded the media to just blatantly attack him. On top of that, they are so terrified of the president that the deep state wants Trump taken out.

“Donald Trump is questioning the Deep State and the shadow government,” Shipp says in an interview with USAWatchdog‘s Greg Hunter. “He’s rocking that place left and right. The news media is terrified of that. Their editors are telling them to attack him just like they are attacking him from the inside. It’s just dirty pool because they want him taken out.”

Of course, that isn’t all Shipp had to say about Trump’s attack on the deep state. The very people that have been attacking Donald Trump are now feeling the Trump counter-attack, and they are terrified.

Should intelligence agencies be able to sweep our email, read our texts, track our phone calls, locate us by GPS? Much of the conversation swirls around the possibility that agencies like the N.S.A. or the F.B.I. will use such information not to serve national security but to carry out personal and political vendettas. King’s experience reminds us that these are far from idle fears, conjured in the fevered minds of civil libertarians. They are based in the hard facts of history.

Corporate Powers Are Stealing Online Identities, Posting Fake Comments to Push for Consumer Law Repeals

Hundreds of thousands of comments, purportedly made by Americans, have come in over the electronic transom to at least five different federal agencies calling for an end to Obama-era consumer protections and other regulations that impede profits, a series of investigative reports by the Wall Street Journal found. Except, the people who supposedly sent these comments never did.

The latest example concerns the so-called "Fiduciary Rule," which originated in the Labor Department and was to talk effect in July 2019, to try to prevent conflicts of investment from investment advisers targeting retirees.

Big Donors Buffett, Gates Should Worry As FBI Investigates Clintons' "Charity"

So the FBI is again investigating the “Bill, Hillary & Clinton Foundation.” That should make Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren Buffett, and other affluent Americans who have given to the Clinton Foundation wish they had asked more questions before writing those checks.

Here’s why: “Due diligence” doesn’t end when the Clinton “charities” cash your check.

The FBI agents and forensic accountants probing the Clinton Foundation must go all the way back to Oct. 23, 1997, and examine precisely how a public charity, organized to hold federal records of the Clinton presidency, somehow evolved by 2002 to “fight HIV/AIDS internationally,” plus a raft of additional tax-exempt purposes that were never properly authorized in the foundation’s Articles of Incorporation.

David Stockman On The Real "Shithole" - $40 Trillion & Counting...

To wit, the sundry Dem caucuses want more immigrants, and the browner the better, because it's their only route to electoral dominance. By contrast, the hard core GOP immigrant-thumpers are desperately attempting to hang-on to Red State rule in the face of the forbidding demographic math of the white population---and the fact that not many Norwegians want to come to America anyway.

It would not be too far-fetched to say that the partisan battle for office is morphing into a racial-ethnic war.

But today, Fusion GPS is retracting that statement, saying that Simpson "mischaracterized" the source.

Fed's misconduct in Cliven Bundy case stems from Ruby Ridge

Navarro was especially riled because the FBI spent three years covering up or lying about the role of their snipers in the 2014 standoff. The Bundys faced conspiracy charges because they summoned militia to defend them after claiming FBI snipers had surrounded their ranch. Justice Department lawyers scoffed at this claim but newly-released documents vindicate the Bundys. In an interview Saturday, Ammon Bundy reviled the feds: “They basically came to kill our family, they surrounded us with snipers. And then they wanted to lie about it all like none of it happened."

Many of the heavily-armed activists who flocked to the scene feared that the FBI snipers had a license to kill the Bundys. Their reaction cannot be understood without considering a landmark 1990s case that continues to shape millions of Americans’ attitude towards Washington: the federal killings and coverups at Ruby Ridge.

Erdogan vows to ‘drown’ US-backed Syrian Border Force before it’s born, labels unit ‘terrorist army'

The Turks are going after the US supported terrorists in Eastern Syria and Erdogan means to drive the US Terrorist Special Forces advisers out with them.
The drones against the Russian base have really backfired. Can you say Asymetrical Warfare?

The Turkish president has called US-backed Syrian Border Force using Kurdish fighters a “terrorist army,” vowing to “drown” it before it’s complete. He also added that military preparations against Kurdish-held Afrin are ready.

“Our duty is to drown this terrorist force before it is born,” the Turkish leader said on Monday, as cited by AP.

“This is what we have to say to all our allies: don't get between us and terrorist organizations, or we will not be responsible for the unwanted consequences,” Erdogan said, as cited by Turkish media. He added that Turkish forces will battle “until not a single terrorist remains along our borders, let alone 30,000 of them.”

Google’s New ‘Fact-Checker’ Is Partisan Garbage

In the midst of the “fake news” hysteria last year, Google launched a project to help curate reliable information for its readers by identifying articles and sites that need fact-checking. And this may come as a surprise to some of you, but it looks like the tech giant’s truth project is imbued with a tiny bit of ideological and political bias.

Eric Lieberman at The Daily Caller recently found that the fact checks displayed in Google’s search engine results are targeted almost exclusively at conservative publications. You can test it out yourself.

Rosemary Jenks: Dems Have ‘Interest’ in ‘Maintaining Status Quo on Immigration’ to Ensure ‘Future Democrat Voters’

The Democratic Party has a “major interest” in “maintaining the status quo on immigration” in order to ensure a flood of “future Democrat voters” that are expected to arrive legally to the United States over the coming decades, NumbersUSA Director of Governmental Affairs Rosemary Jenks told Breitbart News.

In an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday, hosted by Breitbart News Political Editor Matt Boyle and Deputy Political Editor Amanda House, Jenks said Democrats were increasingly uninterested in cutting a deal with President Trump to enact historic pro-American immigration reforms because it would get in the way of their electoral interests.

John Podesta, Hillary’s Creepy Campaign Manager, Now in Middle of Obama’s Illegal Spying on Trump and Phony Dossier

Now it looks like Podesta is right in the middle of the fake dossier that was reportedly provided to the FISA court to request permission to spy on candidate Trump.

It’s unknown if the dossier was used as support for Obama and Hillary spying on candidate Trump or if it was used to obtain permission to spy on the Trump team after the spying was already in place. Both of which would be criminal acts due to the dossier being a fraud and using the government to spy on an opposing candidate being beyond belief and criminal as well.

Lewandowski: ‘We’ve Got a Real Problem’ If the Dems Take Back Control of the House

In a Sunday interview on New York AM 970’s “The Cats Roundtable,” former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski warned articles of impeachment could be introduced if Democrats retake the House in 2018.

“If you look at the numbers, I think we’ve got 32 or 33 Republican members of Congress who have already announced they are not seeking reelection. The problem with that is the Democrats only have to take back 24 seats in the House in order to take over. And if that happens, we’ve got a real problem,” Lewandowski told host John Catsimatidis.

If so, it would be one of the most remarkable comebacks in political history, after Pelosi led her party to an historic defeat in 2010 after serving as the first female Speaker for four years, then clung to power over a shrinking minority party for eight.

McCain’s office has not responded to numerous Breitbart News phone and email requests for comment seeking clarification on the issue.

Below, in no particular order, are three major, outstanding questions regarding McCain’s involvement in pushing the controversial dossier.

Nuclear War Survival Skills Updated and Expanded 1987 Edition Cresson H. Kearny

An all-out nuclear war between Russia and the United States would be the worst catastrophe in history, a tragedy so huge it is difficult to comprehend. Even so, it would be far from the end of human life on earth. The dangers from nuclear weapons have been distorted and exaggerated, for varied reasons. These exaggerations have become demoralizing myths, believed by millions of Americans.

° Myth: Fallout radiation from a nuclear war would poison the air and all parts of the environment. It would kill everyone. (This is the demoralizing message of On the Beach and many similar pseudoscientific books and articles.)

DHS restarts Obama-era DACA amnesty after judge’s ruling

Amazing! Trump isn't allowed to rescind an executive order.I have never seen such a weak President.

DACA is back up and running, Homeland Security announced this weekend, saying President Trump’s attempt to phase out the Obama-era deportation amnesty is on hold while they fight a court case that ordered them to begin accepting applications again.

Only those among the 800,000 or so previously approved can submit applications for renewal, under the judger’s order. And those covered by DACA will no longer be granted advance parole, which had become a shortcut pathway to citizenship in the Obama administration.

But U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said it will otherwise restore DACA as it was on Sept. 5, before Mr. Trump decided on a six-month phaseout, saying the program was illegal.

Dem Support For Trump Surveillance Powers Proves “Resistance” Is Bull*hit

This author I think has got it right. We are being played with a big psyop!
By Caitlin Johnstone

January 13, 2017 "Information Clearing House" - The so-called “Resistance”, the think tank-generated campaign to continue the authentic grassroots energy from the Bernie Sanders campaign and artificially harness it to oppose Donald Trump, is bullshit. It always has been bullshit. It always will be bullshit.
The leaders of the “Resistance” do not oppose Donald Trump. They are Donald Trump dressed in drag.

This is a continuation of a standard trend in which “Resistance” leaders publicly claim that Trump is a traitor, an aspiring autocrat, a secret Nazi, dangerously incompetent and mentally ill, yet continue heaping godlike powers upon him anyway, like when they let the continued authorization of his unconstitutional AUMF war powers sail through unnoticed a few months ago. Their words say one thing, their actions say another.

Chief of Staff General Valery Gerasimov accused Washington of intending to use the militants to create a so-called 'New Syrian Army', a military formation aimed at further destabilizing the war-torn country after Daesh had been defeated.

Two prominent House Democrats plan to introduce a censure resolution next week to “condemn” President Donald Trump for what they said were his “racist” remarks about wanting fewer immigrants from “shithole” countries.

Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA), the Congressional Black Caucus Chair, and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), the Ranking Member on the House Judiciary Committee, said on Friday that Trump’s “bigoted fearmongering is not acceptable and his remarks completely warrant total condemnation and censure from Congress.” They added in a statement that they were “deeply disturbed and offended” by Trump’s remarks.

"This is an important economic agenda," he added, arguing that the gathering in Davos, Switzerland is just like any other conferences, like the annual Group of 20 summit.

The World Economic Forum, however, carries a reputation as a gathering of wealthy executives, government officials and celebrities in a Swiss resort town, making President Trump's scheduled attendance there later this month a somewhat unexpected move.

Ecuador has protected Assange for the past half decade from being turned over to Washington by the corrupt Swedish and British for torture and prosecution as a spy by giving Assange political asylum inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Ecuador has now given citizenship to Assange and attempted to provide his safe transit out of England by giving him diplomatic status, but the British government continued in its assigned role of jailer by rejecting Ecuador’s request for diplomatic status for Assange, just as the most servile of Washington’s puppet states rejected the order by the UN Committee on Arbitrary Detention to immediate release Assange from his arbitrary detention.

House Democrats could have forced an amendment called the USA RIGHTS Act to abridge this administration’s ability to spy on US citizens, but they did not. This same president who Democratic representatives like Adam Schiffand Eric Swalwell have been loudly claiming is a treasonous Russian agent has been granted uninhibited surveillance powers by both Schiff and Swalwell, as well as House opposition leader Nancy Pelosi. They do not believe that Trump is a Kremlin asset, and they do not oppose him.

"Four committee assignments, including a chairmanship, is a challenging workload," Gowdy wrote in his letter.

Gowdy added, "I was happy to finish out the calendar year and conclude some matters then pending before the committee."

10 Examples Proving The US Gov't is an Expert at Turning Countries into 'Shitholes'

The mainstream media's outrage over reports that President Trump referred to Haiti and El Salvador as "Shithole countries," has gone above and beyond any outrage attributed to the fact that the United States has let its Central Intelligence Agency have free reign over the governments it overthrows and the countries the U.S. invades.

As a result, the countries that have received more than their share of "freedom" from the U.S. have turned into the very definition of "shithole" countries, and have spent years attempting to recover. Here are the top 10:

The Corruption of Benjamin Netanyahu

According to the recording, Ya’ir demanded from of his friend, Nir Maimon, 400 shekels (about 100 dollars), in order to visit a prostitute. When the friend refused, Ya’ir exclaimed: "My father gave your father a concession worth a billion dollars, and you refuse to give me 400 shekels?"

The concession in question concerns the rich gas fields out in the sea near Israel’s shores.

In an especially disgusting display of his utter contempt for the female sex, Ya’ir also offered to provide all his friends with the sexual services of his ex-girlfriend.

This recording raises a whole pile of questions, each more unpleasant than the next.

We have just had a reshuffle openly based on the fatuous idea that the way the Government looks is what matters.

DOJ Unseals Indictment Involving Uranium One Scandal

The Department of Justice unsealed an 11-count indictment on Friday to a former DoD intelligence analyst-turned uranium transportation executive who stands accused of a bribery and money laundering scheme involving a Russian nuclear official connected to the Uranium One deal.

The indictment corroborates a November report by The Hill that an FBI mole deeply embedded in the Russian uranium industry had gathered extensive evidence of the scheme.

Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, Maryland, was charged with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering.

7 times Trump critics called Russia a ‘s***hole’ & worse, and no one cared

Donald Trump’s remarks on “s***hole countries” roused a righteous high-mindedness in his detractors. But a perusal of their own past quotes suggest they are quite capable of similar words – when one particular state is involved.

RUSSIA TODAY: Trump’s s***hole comment encapsulates America’s perpetually racist foreign policy

Critics of US President Donald Trump were quick to point out that his alleged use of the term “s***hole countries” to describe Haiti and some African nations does not reflect what all Americans think of the rest of the world.

And they are correct. There are indeed millions of Americans who feel genuinely disgusted that their president has characterized less fortunate nations in such a way.
But Trump’s comment forces those Americans to reckon with an uncomfortable reality: There are also millions of Americans who do share the president’s sentiments. Fox News confirmed as much>>>

Kremlin accuses U.S. of anti-Russia fearmongering after State Department travel warning

Russia’s Foreign Ministry on Friday accused the U.S. State Department of cultivating “blind fear of Russia among Americans” after the department issued a travel warning this week urging U.S. citizens to reconsider visits to the country.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova dismissed the travel warning, which included terrorism and harassment as serious concerns. She referred to it as an example of what the Kremlin has said repeatedly is a growing wave of Russophobia in Washington tied to allegations that Moscow interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

"In our opinion, this is another unsubstantiated statement, whose primary goal is to trigger another round of anti-Russian hysteria in the U.S., and to cultivate blind fear of Russia among Americans," she said during her weekly news conference.

Living under a bridge doesn't stop this homeless woman from staying positive.

A few months back I logged onto Facebook and was greeted by a smiling homeless woman's selfie in front of a tent holding up a cup of coffee. It was captioned "good morning." Today, I met Manda at her homeless encampment where she made me a cup of coffee!
Manda is an amazing woman. She is disabled from severe brain trauma, yet because she is high functioning, she falls through the gaps in the safety net. I have been working with her trying to help find a path out of homelessness, but the walls bureaucracy are impossible to break through.
For all the people that believe homeless people are lazy, I wish they could just spend an hour in Manda's shoes! She works hard to keep her tent camp clean. She works hard getting to treatment and therapy. She works hard every single day trying to survive. And she works extremely hard to stay positive while facing the madness of homelessness each and every day!

The Case of Judge Roy Moore, Proof of Deriliction of Duty is Why Sen. Mitch McConnell Must Resign.

If we don’t deal with election fraud , both the house and senate could be under democrat control with the voter fraud system intact. Sen Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are perfectly content with throwing the election to the Democrats to keep the power structure in DC intact.
That would be a major step back Making America great again

How Will President Trump Deal With A Rogue California Government Making the State a Third World S-hole?

What is going on in the state is a major train wreck getting ready to happen that could have been preventable.

Who or What Is Feeding the Unrest in Iran? Philip Giraldi

Given the history of foreign interventions in the Middle East, is the United States or Israel plausibly involved in the demonstrations?
The answer to that is both yes and no. There is considerable evidence that the United States and possibly Israel, joined by Saudi Arabia, have set up several command centers in Iraq and Afghanistan to support the protests. They have been using social networking as well as radio broadcasts to encourage the people to get out and demonstrate. One such station called AmadNews, broadcasting from outside Iran, called on demonstrators to attack police stations and government buildings. It appears to be a US government front manned by Persian speaking Israelis.

The FBI Hand Behind Russia-gate

Russia-gate is becoming FBI-gate, thanks to the official release of unguarded text messages between loose-lipped FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok and his garrulous girlfriend, FBI lawyer Lisa Page. (Ten illustrative texts from their exchange appear at the end of this article.)

Despite his former job as chief of the FBI’s counterintelligence section, Strzok had the naive notion that texting on FBI phones could not be traced. Strzok must have slept through “Security 101.” Or perhaps he was busy texting during that class. Girlfriend Page cannot be happy at being misled by his assurance that using office phones would be a secure way to conduct their affair(s).
