CNN Concedes Republicans Make Valid Point


Written By Tiffany Layne |

CNN, John King, Impeachment, TeamKJ, KevinJackson

There’s a certain irony in the fact that CNN has graced our news twice today.

Earlier, we dissected an article in which CNN didn’t adhere to the high journalistic standards expected of the mainstream media.

Or shall I say “once expected,” because it seems people are content with #FakeNews all too often. Nevertheless, CNN published an article in which the very title was an erroneous claim.

The headline read: GOP concedes Trump may have withheld aid for probes but says it’s not impeachable.

take our poll – story continues below
  • Should the US Senate Give President Trump a Full Acquittal?*
    • Yes!
    • No!
    • Undecided
  • Email*

Trending: Did You See Comey’s Tweet on Impeachment Acquittal?

As we pointed out, CNN’s senior congressional correspondent, Manu Raju, clearly tried to pass off his opinions as statements of fact. Of course, we’ve grown accustomed to CNN’s inability to stick to the facts. Thus, it’s always surprising when a member of the CNN staff has a moment of clarity.

But that’s exactly what happened shortly after the Justice Roberts refused to read Rand Paul’s question during the impeachment hearing.

Justice Roberts said he didn’t want to reveal the identity of the whistleblower. (Even though his identity has been established by several media sites.) Thus, a debate ensued.

And Rand Paul took his question to Twitter.

As we previously reported:

“My exact question was: Are you aware that House intelligence committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella while at the National Security Council together,” Paul stated, “and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal house impeachment proceedings.”
Paul said his question was not in regard to the whistleblower’s ID, but about whether leftover partisan Obama officials conspired with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, now the head impeachment manager in the Senate, to devise an impeachment scheme prior to the beginning of the proceedings.
“My question today is about whether or not individuals who were holdovers from the Obama National Security Council and Democrat partisans conspired with Schiff staffers to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings,” Paul tweeted. “My question is not about a ‘whistleblower’ as I have no independent information on his identity.”

Here’s where the shock and awe comes in.

CNN’s John King agreed with the Republicans.

In fact, King even proposed some questions of his own.

As Fox News explains:

CNN anchor John King defended Republicans on Thursday, arguing they made a “legitimate point” in asking why the intelligence community whistleblower — who brought the complaint that prompted Trump’s impeachment — hadn’t been questioned.
“You’re asking the Congress, the Senate now, to remove the President of the United States,” King said. “It’s a legitimate point for the president’s team and the Republicans to say: ‘Shouldn’t we go to the very origin of this?’”
His comments came after Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., tried asking a question that mentioned the name of a person reported to be the whistleblower. Chief Justice John Roberts shut down the question, which Paul described as “atypical.”
King said he wouldn’t help Paul “air his grievances” over the issue, but proposed certain questions for Democrats.
“Republicans make a good point — the whistleblower started all of this. Why hasn’t the whistleblower been questioned?” he said. “Shouldn’t the House Democrats have found a secure way to do that? It’s a legitimate point of debate as we go through this.”
“Is outing the whistleblower in a public setting the way to make your point? I think we could have a conversation about that … the Democrats’ argument is that just about everything the whistleblower alleged has been proven through other sources, so we don’t need to do this.”

It’s sad when using common sense becomes headline-worthy. But the mainstream media is so far removed from reality that this rare show of intelligence clearly blew our minds today! As for tomorrow, expect democrats to prepare for defeat.

Breaking! Ukraine Whistleblower Tied to Russian Hoax


Written By Tiffany Layne |

Trump, dynamite, Biden, #TeamKJ, #KevinJackson, whistleblower, leaker

Democrats have yet to call off this impeachment farce. Thus, more evidence comes to light on a daily basis.

And the evidence proves an attempted coup morphed into the Russian hoax. And now, we learn the “leaker” in the Russian hoax is the CIA “whistleblower.”

Isn’t it ironic? During Obama’s adminstration, this man worked with the Bidens in the Ukraine.

whistleblower, Russian hoax, leaker, impeachment, TeamKJ, KevinJackson / Image courtesy: Breitbart.

As the Gateway Pundit reports:

Last night on The Ingraham Angle on FOX News, Laura Ingraham invited Sara Carter and author Lee Smith on to discuss the individual who was instrumental in setting up President Trump in the Russia and Ukraine Hoaxes.

Of course Ingram didn’t mention his name. Instead she urged the whistleblower to come forward. However, her panel made the point that this guy isn’t a whistleblower at all. Instead, he’s an anti-Trump conspirator. Further, he’s guilty of manufacturing evidence against the President. However, sources such as the Gateway Pundit specifically named Eric Ciaramella as the whistleblower. Here we have lying mole, said to be a CIA operative, who made a false report to Adam Schiff in order to take aim at the president. And not only is he linked to the CIA, but he was clearly planted in the White House.

New rumors connect this ‘whistleblower’ to a 2020 Presidential campaign. And while I’m uncertain which campaign, it could turn out to be Joe Biden’s, especially considering Ciaramella’s previous ties to Biden.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Michael Atkinson, the Intelligence Community’s inspector general, told members of Congress that the whistleblower had a “professional tie” to a 2020 Democratic candidate. He had written earlier that while the whistleblower’s complaint was credible, he had shown “some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate.”
A retired CIA officer toldthe Washington Examiner, “From everything we know about the whistleblower and his work in the executive branch then, there is absolutely no doubt he would have been working with Biden when he was vice president.”

If you dig through the news enough, you can start tying the bits and pieces together. Yahoo published this: 

But Gateway Pundit points this out:

Funny, when you click on the name ‘Eric Ciaramella’ in the post above, you get this –
Cernovich reported in June, 2017, that McMaster promoted Ciaramella in spite of being connected to Susan Rice in Obama’s White House – West Wing officials confirmed to Cernovich Media that Eric Ciaramella, who worked closely with Susan Rice while at NSC, was recently promoted to be H.R. McMaster’s personal aide. Ciaramella will have unfettered access to McMaster’s conversations with foreign leaders. (Ciaramella’s old boss, McMaster, was in the news siding with the whistleblower.)

Even Politico drew lines between Trump supporters in the White House and people like Ciaramella, who are clearly ‘deep state’ –

Trump political appointees were believed to frequently talk to journalists who worked for conservative media outlets. For months, those outlets published names of career Civil and Foreign Service officers in the NSC and other government agencies whose loyalties they deemed suspect. Career staffers who had joined the U.S. government many years, sometimes decades, earlier were suddenly cast as Obama loyalists determined to derail Trump’s agenda as part of a “deep state.”

The people targeted included a State Department civil servant of Iranian descent who’d joined government under the George W. Bush administration; a highly respected Foreign Service officer who dealt with Israeli issues; and an NSC staffer who dealt with European and Russian issues. The latter, Eric Ciaramella, reportedly left the NSC after receiving death threats. Another staffer targeted by conservative outlets was Fernando Cutz, a Latin America expert and top aide to McMaster; at one point he had to temporarily get police protection. (Cutz was maligned by conservative websites in part because he earned a master’s degree from the University of Arkansas’ Clinton School of Public Service, thus supposedly linking him to another Democratic president.)

The list goes on and on.

For example, Ciaramella was Obama’s NSC Director for the Ukraine. By default, that connects Ciaramella to Biden. Additionally, Schiff’s leakers connect to Biden. And then there’s the whole “dinner with James Clapper and James Comey” that Ciaramella attended. Could this be where the hoax started?

Now, according to the Ingraham Angle, there was a meeting at the White House in 2016. This meeting addressed Biden’s family and their work in the Ukraine. Ciaramella, who is also a key player in the Russian hoax, arranged the meeting.

So this all leads to one big question. When will Democrats call on Ciaramella to testify under oath? Because we all know the Democrats just want the truth. <Insert sarcastic sigh here.>

Republicans to Subpoena Whistleblower, Hunter Biden, Alexandra Chalupa


Written by Kristina Wong | 

URL of the original posting site: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/11/20/republicans-to-subpoena-whistleblower-hunter-biden-alexandra-chalupa/

WASHINGTON, DC – NOVEMBER 20: Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) listens as Gordon Sondland, the U.S ambassador to the European Union, testifies before the House Intelligence Committee in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill November 20, 2019 in Washington, DC. The committee heard testimony during the fourth day of …Alex Edelman/Getty Images

Republicans intend to subpoena testimony and documents related to the anonymous whistleblower, Hunter Biden, and Democratic National Committee contractor Alexandra Chalupa, according to a letter they sent to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA).

“Although Speaker Pelosi promised that Democrats would ‘treat the President with fairness,’ you have repeatedly prevented Republicans from fully and fairly examining issues central to the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry,’” House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Oversight and Reform Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) wrote in a November 20, 2019, letter.

“We therefore write to inform you that we intend to subpoena testimony and records in an attempt to inject some semblance of fairness and objectivity into your one-side and partisan inquiry,” they said.

On the whistleblower, they wrote that the whistleblower’s testimony is “necessary for a full and fair understanding of all relevant facts.” They wrote:

The Inspector General of the Intelligence Community reported that the whistleblower had a political bias against President Trump and public reports suggest that the whistleblower worked closely with former Vice President Joe Biden. In addition, there are multiple discrepancies between the whistleblower’s complaint — the piece of evidence central to the Democrat’ inquiry — and the closed testimony of the witnesses. For these reasons, we must assess the whistleblower’s credibility and the sources he or she utilized to develop the anonymous complaint.

On Biden, they wrote that since witnesses raised the issue of Hunter Biden getting paid $50,000 per month for sitting on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company that was under investigation, learning more about it would be “directly relevant to the inquiry”:

According to the New York Times, Hunter Biden was ‘part of a broad effort by Burisma to bring in well-connected Democrats during a period when the company was facing investigations backed not just by domestic Ukrainian forces but by officials in the Obama administration.’ Reports suggest that Burisma paid Hunter Biden $50,000 per month through a company called Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC. Because witnesses explained that Hunter Biden’s presence on Burisma’s board raised concerns during the Obama Administration and President Trump briefly raised this issue during his phone call with President Zelensky, this information is directly relevant to the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry.’

On Chalupa, they also wrote that her testimony would be “directly relevant” since witnesses have testified that Trump believed the Ukrainians “tried to take [him] down”:

In August 2016, less than three months before the election, Valeriy Chaly, then-Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States, authored an op-ed in a U.S. newspaper criticizing candidate Trump. In addition, in January 2017, Politico reported about Ukrainian government’s effort to ‘sabotage’ the Trump campaign in 2016 by working closely with the media and a Democratic National Committee consultant named Alexandra Chalupa. The Politico article detailed how Chalupa ‘traded information and leads’ with staff at the Ukrainian embassy and how the Ukrainian embassy ‘worked directly with reporters researching Trump, [Trump campaign manager Paul] Manafort, and Russia to point them in the right directions.’ Because witnesses testified that President Trump believed that Ukraine ‘tried to take [him] down’ in 2016, this information is directly relevant to the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry.’

Nunes and Jordan concluded:

The American people see through your sham ‘impeachment inquiry.’ The American people understand how you have affirmatively prevented Republicans from examining serious issues directly relevant to the issues. Therefore, to provide some basic level of fairness and objectivity to your ‘impeachment inquiry,’ we intend to subpoena the anonymous whistleblower and Hunter Biden for sworn testimony in closed-door depositions. We also intend to subpoena the following entities for record relevant to the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry’:
    1. The whistleblower for documents and communications relating to the drafting and filing of the complaint dated August 12, 2019, and the personal memorandum drafted on or around July 26, 2019.
    2. Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC and any subsidiaries or affiliates for records relating to Hunter Biden’s position on the Board of Directors of Burisma Holdings; and
    3. The Democratic National Committee for communications with Ukrainian government officials and for records relating to Alexandra Chalupa.
“We look forward to your prompt concurrence. Your failure to concur with all of these subpoenas shall constitute evidence of your denial of fundamental fairness and due process,” they wrote.

Rep. Dan Bishop Names Alleged Impeachment ‘Whistleblower’: ‘He’s Not Voldemort’

(Photo by Brian Blanco/Getty Images)

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) became the first member of Congress to publicly name the alleged “whistleblower,” whose second-hand complaint sparked the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, on Twitter Monday evening.

Bishop on Monday responded to a tweet from an individual who suggested that the GOP refrain from using the term “whistleblower,” instead referring to him as  “the leaker” or “the operative” or “the deep state spy in the White House.”

The North Carolina congressman said he agreed “100%,” noting that he refuses “to cower before the authoritarian intimidation campaign.”

“He’s not Voldemort. And he’s not a bona fide whistleblower. Even if he were, he wouldn’t be entitled to secrecy. Eric Ciamarella is a deep state conspirator,” Bishop wrote. “He needs to testify now”:

Eric Ciaramella is a career CIA analyst whom Real Clear Investigations suggests is the likely so-called “whistleblower” in a report last month. However, Ciaramella had been floating around as the possible “whistleblower” long before the bombshell report.

Ciaramella also has links to the infamous anti-Trump dossier and reportedly “interfaced about Ukraine with individuals who played key roles in facilitating the infamous anti-Trump dossier produced by Fusion GPS and reportedly financed by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee,” as Breitbart News reported.

Bishop’s move now places extra pressure on tech giants like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube (owned by Google parent company Alphabet), and WikiPedia, which have all suppressed usage of Ciaramella’s name and penalized users for sharing it. “We are removing any and all mentions of the potential whistleblower’s name,” Facebook told Breitbart News last week — but said the company “will revisit this decision should their name be widely published in the media or used by public figures in debate.” As the first member of Congress to use the name in a public setting, Bishop certainly fits the description of a public figure airing Ciaramella’s name in debate.

Despite popular belief, the law “does not explicitly prevent anyone other than the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) who received the complaint that triggered the impeachment inquiry from outing the identity of the so-called ‘whistleblower,’” as multiple establishment media outlets have admitted.

Republicans listed the “whistleblower” on their list of witnesses that they wish to testify – a list which also includes Hunter Biden, Biden’s business partner Devon Archer, Fusion GPS researcher Nellie Ohr, and Alexandra Chalupa, a Ukrainian-American consultant for the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Schiff dismissed the Republicans’ list.

“This inquiry is not, and will not serve, however, as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigations into the Bidens or 2016 that the President pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit, or to facilitate the President’s effort to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm,” Schiff stated.

EPIC! Mollie Hemingway Shocks Fox News Panel Stunned After Dropping Whistleblower’s Name on Live Broadcast (VIDEO)


Written by Daniel | November 12, 2019

URL of the original posting site: https://freedomheadlines.com/the-latest/epic-mollie-hemingway-shocks-fox-news-panel-stunned-after-dropping-whistleblowers-name-on-live-broadcast-video/

Lately, it is blasphemous to mention the name or Eric Ciara****a. You can get away with talking about anything else right now, but if you dare mention that name, you’re going to be in some deep dookie for it.

During a Fox News live broadcast, Mollie Hemingway from The Federalist let out the name or the alleged whistleblower and everyone was stunned that it happened. She did it purposely and I agree with what she said about it. Why are we treating it like a big secret?

According to The Daily Beast,

Amid a concerted effort by Trump’s allies to publicly out the whistleblower who filed the complaint about Trump’s infamous July 25 call with the Ukrainian president, right-wing media outlets have touted an online report purportedly sharing the identity of the person. Mainstream media outlets and social media platforms, meanwhile, have refrained from spreading the person’s name.
Fox News had reportedly also instructed its employees to not name the alleged whistleblower. CNN reported that the network had instructed staffers that it had not “independently confirmed [the] name or identification of the anonymous whistleblower.” Additionally, a network executive informed production staffers to “NOT fulfill any video or graphic requests” surrounding the whistleblower’s identity.

This left the Fox News anchors flabbergasted and they had no idea what to say or do. It was like she had just told a bunch of 5-year-olds that Santa Claus wasn’t real.

Howard Kurtz decided to protect his butt and said, “I don’t know whether this is actually the person or not and I don’t want to speculate about that. But there have been a few conservative outlets and commentators who have floated that name.”

But it was Kurtz recently who said that he wanted the name out there and that it would give a chilling message to other whistleblowers.

To be honest, I’m surprised that they didn’t just flat out censor the name when it was said. If you don’t know this, “Live” is never truly live, there is a slight delay and that allows some censoring to occur if needed.

BOOM! Ukrainian Whistleblower Blows Up Schiff’s Lies – Says Obama Admin Pressured Ukraine All of the Time! (VIDEO)


Posted  |

As The Gateway Pundit first reported in December 2018, Andrii Telizhenko, an official at the Ukrainian Embassy, was approached by DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa in early 2016. Alexandra Chalupa wanted dirt on candidate Trump and his campaign manager Paul Manafort. The Ukrainian embassy in Washington DC worked CLOSELY with the DNC operative Chalupa. Chalupa told Andrii she wanted Russian “dirt” on the Trump campaign.

The Gateway Pundit spoke with Telizhenko on the DNC Russia-gate Scandal last year.

Chalupa is also connected to a Ukrainian by the name of Vasili Filipchuk, who ran the organization labeled ICPS. Filipchuk too is suspected of helping to write the phony Trump-Russia dossier. The entity he works for (ICPS) stands for the International Center for Policy Studies and it was founded by Open Society.

Open Society is a well known George Soros funded organization that fronts as an entity that works “to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people.” In reality it is a far-left organization that works against freedoms embedded in the US Constitution and across Europe.

Along with being connected to the fake Trump – Russia dossier and suspicious individuals in the Ukraine, Chalupa also is involved in the creation of astro-turfed (i.e. created by Democrat leadership) anti – Trump events in Washington D.C.

Now this…
OAN’s Jack Posobiec interviewed Andrii Telizhenko again this week. Telezhenko destroys Adam Schiff and the unhinged Democrats.

Andrii Telizhenko: Most of the Ukrainian and government officials do not even understand what the fuss is about here in Washington… We’re supposed to be the victims in this whole thing but we’re not. The Ukrainian president said there was no quid pro quo, there was no pressure. And what I know is he said privately that it was the most diplomatic phone call he’s had in the last couple months with foreign leaders…

Jack Posobiec: Did you see pressure under the Obama administration?

Andrii Telizhenko: Of course, we saw pressure every time. Starting with the Ambassador from the United States in Kiev who would call the president and tell him what to do. It’s unethical to do this anywhere else in the world… And in meetings he would be told what to do, who to fire, who to hire.

This is an amazing interview by Jack Posobiec and Andrii Telizhenko. And this is from the whistleblower who first reported on Obama and the Democrat Party’s shady dealings with Ukraine.

TREASON ALERT: Whistleblower’s Attorney Admits Coup d’tat Was Started


Written by Daniel | November 7, 2019

Mark Zaid, who is one of the attorneys for the unrevealed whistleblower who is supposed to be the main man responsible for getting the impeachment inquiry started in the House of Representatives admitted that there is indeed a coup d’état in effect that is purposely looking to overthrow President Trump.

Back in 2017, he tweeted “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately”. He also mentioned that the impeachment would occur in many steps.

According to Fox News,

The tweets, which came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for failing to defend federal laws in court, are likely to fuel Republican concerns that the anonymous whistleblower’s complaint is tainted with partisanship. Trump’s call with Ukraine’s leader, which is the subject of the complaint, occurred in July 2019.

“The whistleblower’s lawyer gave away the game,” the Trump campaign’s communications director, Tim Murtaugh, told Fox News. “It was always the Democrats’ plan to stage a coup and impeach President Trump and all they ever needed was the right scheme. They whiffed on Mueller so now they’ve settled on the perfectly fine Ukraine phone call. This proves this was orchestrated from the beginning.”

Trump has repeatedly accused Democrats and partisans in the intelligence community of effectively plotting a coup against him, through selective leaks and lengthy investigations.

This entire impeachment process is a complete circus act. The lengths they’ve gone to hide their secret meetings and not revealing who the whistleblower is, as well as not allowing the Republicans to question the whistleblower.

Honestly, it’s unbelievable that this has gone on as long as it has already. The transcript from the call was already released and there was nothing bad in the call, yet because this one whistleblower said that there was, they’ve started an official impeachment inquiry, which will ultimately lead to nowhere, and Pelosi knows it. That’s why she was trying to avoid it as much as she could.

Deep State IG Releases Statement: Why They Changed Whistleblower Forms to Include: Watercooler Talk, Rumors, Hearsay and Cafeteria Conversations

Most of you are probably aware that the rules for whistleblower complaints were recently changed. This actually created an issue due to the timing when it was done. It was changed just before the whisteblower complaint was filed against President Trump for his call with Ukrainian President Zelensky which is VERY suspicious.

The Deep State Intelligence Community Inspector General, Michael Atkinson, released a news statement this week explaining why they thought it necessary to alter the rules on whistleblower complaints to include watercooler talk, rumors, hearsay and cafeteria conversations rather than just firsthand information.

Here is what Atkinson said about changing the rules,

“Although the form requests information about whether the Complainant possesses first-hand knowledge about the matter about which he or she is lodging the complaint, there is no such requirement set forth in the statute. In fact, by law the Complainant – or any individual in the Intelligence Community who wants to report information with respect to an urgent concern to the congressional intelligence committees – need not possess first-hand information in order to file a complaint or information with respect to an urgent concern. The ICIG cannot add conditions to the filing of an urgent concern that do not exist in law.”

Read the full news release from the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community down below:

Atkinson also said that the CIA “whistleblower’s” concerns appeared credible so they made everything urgent, even though the CIA has proven to be as compromised.

All of this tells us a number of things.

First, we now know that there is a spy in the White House. Secondly, that there is a purposeful attempt to gain damaging information on President Trump in the attempt at removing him from office. This is a coup d’etat attempt, it’s as clear as day and it needs to stop because this is treason.

Schiff’s Impeachment Plan Imploding After Republicans Catch Him Breaking Committee Rules

Schiff’s Impeachment Plan Imploding After Republicans Catch Him Breaking Committee Rules

Thursday wasn’t a good day from California knucklehead and Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff. After the revelations about his contact with the “whistleblower” before the complaint was filed were revealed, it appears he intentionally broke committee rules.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said in a statement:

We learn from the press today that Chm Schiff had prior knowledge and involvement in the [whistleblower] complaint. He withheld this info from the American people and even from the Intel Cmte. In light of this news, it’s hard to view impeachment as anything aside from an orchestrated farce.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY) who is another Republican on the House Intelligence Committee also confirmed that Schiff kept the information from Republicans and is calling him to step down.

Stefanik said, “Re-upping my tweet from last week given the breaking news today that Adam Schiff had early access to the whistleblower & DID NOT share it with his own committee – instead he manipulated this information & played partisan political games. He should immediately step down as Chair.”

Fred Fleitz, former CIA analyst and chief of staff to the National Security Council, said Schiff broke committee rules when he hid information from the Republicans.

“Under @HouseIntelComm rules, any classified info brought to the committee from outside sources MUST BE SHARED WITH BOTH SIDES. Schiff broke committee rules by not telling committee GOP members about this,” tweeted Fleitz, who once worked as a staffer on the House Intelligence Committee. “This is a very serious violation of @HouseIntelComm rules. Why did Schiff do this, especially when he was using this information to score political points throughout the month of August? The reason is clear: it was part of a the latest Dem ploy to take down @realDonaldTrump.”

On Wednesday the New York Times reported that the “whistleblower” who is a CIA official met with a Schiff staffer with concerns about President Trump. Only after that meeting did the “whistleblower” file a complaint with the inspector general and file a whistleblower complaint.

It’s all starting to unravel for Mr. Schiff and his impeachment plan is falling apart.

Pelosi Engages Barr Fight

Barr Fight, Pelosi, #TeamKJ, #KevinJackson | Image Courtesy: BBC

What happens every time the Democrats investigate Trump? Nothing. So what do they do next? Investigate the investigation. This whistle-blower scandal is no different.

Now, Nancy Pelosi says AG Barr is protecting Donald Trump with a cover-up, because she is desperate to save face. As recently put it, Pelosi fell into Trump’s trap- hook, line and sinker.

Before Trump released the phone call, we predicted the utter failure of this whistle-blower.

Democrats have only one chance in 2020. They must impeach Trump in order to take over the White House. Thus, it’s no wonder they continually search for grounds to impeach.

Currently, Democrats base their fantasies on a phone call with the Ukraine. But tomorrow will come and bust their hopes and dreams yet again. Especially now that Donald Trump said he is releasing the transcript of said phone call.

We knew Nancy would take it hard.

In fact, GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz weighed in.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives has been functionally catfished into a politically fatal impeachment proceeding based on rumors, based on faulty evidence and based on a bloodlust for the president politically that does not serve our nation well.

Let me give you the high points. There is no quid-pro-quo between President Trump and President Zelensky for anything, much less military aid. There is no eight times of reference to Joe Biden. I think “The Wall Street Journal” will have a good deal of retracting today. And in fact, President Zelensky himself identifies the rooting out of corruption. President Zelensky said “we here in the Ukraine are trying to drain the swamp much like you are trying to drain the swamp in the United States of America.”

This isn’t a call about leverage. This isn’t a call about threats. This was a mutually appreciative and laudatory call between two leaders who are trying to clean up some of the garbage in their respective countries that has polluted politics. Now, the president does ask for a favor from President Zelensky but the favor is on behalf of our nation. The favor we seek is cooperation between his government and Attorney General Bill Barr as we work to determine what activities in the Ukraine may have been in any way involved in the 2016 — not 2020 — but in the 2016 efforts to interfere with the United States election.

My next prediction was that Democrats would again fail to impeach, and their efforts will backfire in 2020. But I left out one important step- the part where Democrats pretend there is more proof somewhere, if they only dig deeper.

Barr Fight

Now, Pelosi’s strategy is to paint AG William Barr as unhinged. That would certainly help with his counter investigation of the Russian investigation. Further, Pelosi could theoretically keep her impeachment inquiry alive another day.

According to Fox News:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Friday that Attorney General William Barr has “gone rogue,” alleging there was an attempted “cover-up” of the whistle-blower complaint that has led to an impeachment inquiry of President Trump.
“He’s gone rogue,” Pelosi said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” after host Joe Scarborough asked if she was concerned that the country’s institutions could fail due to Barr’s behavior.
“I think where they are going is the cover-up of the cover-up, and that’s very really sad for them. To have a Justice Department go so rogue, they have been for a while, and now it just makes matters worse,” said Pelosi, faulting Barr for instructing the director of national intelligence to bring the whistle-blower complaint to the White House.

Grasping at Straws

There’s a serious lack of common sense brewing here. Barr and Maguire knew this whistle-blower complain was nonsense. Thus, they acted in the best interest of justice. Which kind of makes sense, considering it’s the Justice Department. But Pelosi needs a win, thus she’s grasping at straws for anything to “get” Donald Trump.

Fox continues:

Pelosi said acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire “broke the law” by not immediately turning over the whistle-blower complaint to Congress. She called Maguire a man of “great reputation” and said she “felt sorry for him” because he was placed in an “unprecedented situation.”
House Democrats are moving full speed ahead with the impeachment inquiry announced earlier this week, with reports indicating lawmakers could file articles of impeachment before year’s end.

Liberals Furious: NY Times Doxxed Whistleblower

New York Times, #TeamKJ, #KevinJackson | Image Courtesy: CNBC

#CancelNYT is a trending hashtag on Twitter now that the liberal media bandits broke their own rules- protect the source.

Thursday, the Times published an article revealing the whistleblower is a former CIA officer who once detailed the White House.

This information seems to be the most we’ve learned thus far about the whistleblower, and it’s revelation set the internet on fire.

As Fox New explains:

The “exclusive details” were revealed in a report based on corroborated accounts of three unnamed sources, not the whistle-blower himself. The Times also reported that lawyers for the whistle-blower refused to confirm that he worked for the CIA and said that publishing information about him was “dangerous.” (Fox News has not confirmed The Times’ report.)
The whistleblower filed a formal nine-page complaint accusing the White House of covering up a July phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which Trump asked the foreign leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
Trump reportedly pondered who gave the whistleblower the information and said the person is “close to a spy,” according to audio of his remarks at a private event in a New York hotel obtained by The Los Angeles Times. Some critics of the Gray Lady’s decision feel that the whistle-blower’s safety could be at risk.
The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“Y’all really doxxed the whistleblower? If anything happens to him/her, it’s on you, #CancelNYT,” tweeted one person.
“Our country’s heroes are worth far more than clicks and views. Doxxing the whistle-blower endangers the individual’s life, which is especially heinous considering the whistle-blower went through proper government channels. The NYT protects Trump sources better than this. #CancelNYT,” wrote Dr. Eugene Gu.

Justifiable Fears

It’s almost funny how much leftists fear Trump’s discovery of the whistleblower’s name.

“Our country’s heroes are worth far more than clicks and views. Doxxing the whistleblower endangers the individual’s life, which is especially heinous considering the whistleblower went through proper government channels. The NYT protects Trump sources better than this. #CancelNYT”

But if you think about it, I can see where leftist’s get these fears. We all know what happens to those who snitch on the Clintons. Let’s name a few of the dead bodies oddly linked to the Clintons: James McDougal, Mary Mahoney, Vince Foster, Ron Brown, Paul Tully, Kathy Ferguson, Suzanne Coleman, and James Milan.

Oh, and all these body guards are dead: Major William S. Barkey, Jr., Captain Scott J. Reynolds, Sgt. Brian Hanley, Sgt. Tim Sabel, Major General William Robertson, Col. William Densberger, Col. Robert Kelly, Spec. Gary Rhodes, Steve Willis, Robert Williams, Conway LeBleu, Todd McKeehan.

Like the mysterious death of Seth Rich, each of these deaths is explained as suicide, car wreck, plane crash or fire. And connecting the dots between the Clintons and these bodies is almost always labeled conspiracy theory. But here’s the thing about conspiracies: sometimes, they’re 100% true. That’s how the Clintons hide in plain sight. They laugh off serious allegations as extreme conspiracy theories hatched by nutcases and detract from the very real facts surrounding each body.

But I digress… the real point to this isn’t the Clinton body count. I mention it only to explain why leftists are terrified of Trump. They’re deeply ingrained in a culture that murders double-crossing snitches. Thus, leftist loyalty airs on the side of secrets. And exposing those secrets will cost the NYTimes more than they predicted.

The Fallout

We all know nothing speaks as loud as dollars do. If these tweeters follow through with their threats, the Times will hear their message loud and clear.

Fox elaborates:

In addition to canceling subscriptions, others even called for the firing of Times’ executive editor Dean Baquet, who had issued a statement explaining why the Gray Lady chose to publish the information.
“Dean Baquet should absolutely lose his job over this. Quickly. The damage to the whistleblower’s safety is already done, but @nytimes must condemn this decision to protect future sources & whistleblowers. This cannot be left as an acceptable precedent. #CancelNYT,” Twitter user @KristinMinkDC wrote.
Baquet responded to the criticism in an article published Thursday night saying the Times decided to publish “limited information” about the whistleblower to give him credibility against Trump’s claims that the unidentified person was a “political hack job.”
“The president and some of his supporters have attacked the credibility of the whistle-blower, who has presented information that has touched off a landmark impeachment proceeding,” Baquet said. “We wanted to provide information to readers that allows them to make their own judgments about whether or not he is credible.”

In other words, liberals did what they could to discredit the President. They didn’t protect the integrity of journalism- not if Trump was the prize. Bad news is– none of this whistleblower nonsense amounts to a hill of beans. Impeachment is once again out of reach.

REVEALED: Deep State Intel Community and Congress Colluded – Whistleblower Documents ALSO ALTERED by CRS — Likely Illegal Act


Posted by 

URL of the original posting site: https://steadfastandloyal.com/politics/revealed-deep-state-intel-community-and-congress-colluded-whistleblower-documents-also-altered-by-crs-likely-illegal-act/

Within four days of the filing of the phony whistleblower complaint, the Deep State in the intelligence community changed the rules so that you don’t have to have first-hand knowledge of a possible crime. You can file solely on say so. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be hearsay, you can just make up anything you wish and say you want to remain anonymous.

From The Gateway Pundit

The tweets are somewhat difficult to understand so here’s a summary of what Beebe is saying:

** The Deep State changed the requirements for filling out the whistleblower form and in August allowed whistleblowers to use ‘hearsay’ when filing a complaint.  At this same time the whistleblower filled out the form slandering President Trump using hearsay. (1-6)

** The Deep State Intel community only updated their online site regarding whistleblower protections four days ago to reflect the recent changes before the recent complaint was released.  This was done in spite of zero legislative action on the related regulations. The term ‘urgent concern’ is now used 10 times in the Congressional Research Service (CRS) manual and was only used 2 times in the prior publication. (7- 10)

** The CRS also recently added wording for addressing disagreements between the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG). (11-12)

**  The CRS cites the regulations for the ICIG chapter and verse for all but 3 paragraphs in the footnotes to the CRS manual (See section 3.A.ii) which discuss the ICIG’s authority to report directly to Congress.  The CRS omits a key clause in the law related to the types of people that the ICIG can investigate.  It is related to only current or former employees of the intelligence community. (13-16)

** This is the key.  The law does not require that a whistleblower complaint of President Donald Trump be provided to Congress – as a matter of fact, only whistleblower complaints of current or former Intel community employees are to be reviewed by the ICIG and only these investigations have a requirement to be forwarded to Congress.

**  The CRS then added an editorial note that is highly debatable but comes across as fact.  It states that who makes the call on whether something is an ‘urgent concern’ is unknown.  This implies that Congress can make this call but the statute indicates that this is a decision to be made within the Intel community. (17-18)

** “Folks – this is an attempted coup!”  (19)

 

The Transcript We Really Want to See


Commentary by Ann Coulter | Posted: Sep 25, 2019 7:04 PM

The Transcript We Really Want to See | Joe and Hunter Biden | Source: AP Photo/Nick Wass

Editor’s note: The following column contains graphic language.

The transcript of President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky is yet another illustration of the rule: Never ask a question you don’t know the answer to.

But on the basis of one drama queen’s overreaction to a rumor she’d heard about what was said on a phone call she didn’t hear (I’m assuming the whistleblower is Christine Blasey Ford), the Democrats have launched impeachment proceedings against the president.

I guess they figured it’s easier than flying to South Dakota with picks and chisels and carving Trump into Mount Rushmore. But it will have the same effect.

Now that the transcript has been released, it’s The New York Times that doesn’t want anyone to see it.

The transcript I’d like to see is the one of Nancy Pelosi reading the Trump transcript. 

F@@@@@@CK! Whose f***ing idea was it to demand this goddamn transcript?
F@CK!
F@@CK!
F@@@CK!

The absolute worst version for Trump — i.e. the one being repeated non-stop on MSNBC — is that he did exactly what Obama and Biden were doing to Ukraine: intimidating an ally into giving us something in exchange for the foreign aid we were giving them.

Biden himself bragged about getting Ukraine’s prosecutor fired by threatening to withhold a big fat check from them.

The Democrats’ argument is: No, no, no! When WE were pressuring Ukraine, we were doing it for good! Don’t you understand? We’re good; they’re bad.

The other reason the media are going to have to bury this transcript is that Trump brought up a few items that the media have been hoping the public would never find out about.

Trump said: “There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.”

Well, that’s something the media haven’t mentioned before. Ninety-nine percent of Americans will be hearing about the funny business with Biden’s son, Hunter, for the first time with the release of this transcript.

Why did Vice President Biden order the Ukrainian president to fire the prosecutor investigating the Ukrainian company paying his son millions of dollars? Are Democrats claiming that this company was clean as a whistle and it was an absolute OUTRAGE that it was being investigated?

The second issue the media does not want anyone to think about is CrowdStrike.

What is CrowdStrike, you ask? That is the cybersecurity firm that is the sole source of the claim that the Russians hacked the DNC’s emails — which launched the conspiracy theories that tied our country in knots for the past three years.

The Russian collusion story was originally hatched by Hillary Clinton in the summer of 2016 to cover up the utter corruption revealed by the dump of Democratic National Committee emails on Wikileaks. As was her practice whenever a scandal threatened to engulf her, Hillary rushed out and told the press to investigate something else.

And “the great story” about the DNC email hack wasn’t about a “vast right-wing conspiracy” — as she claimed when the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke. No, this time, it was a vast Russian conspiracy!

At the time, the entire media laughed at Hillary’s Russian conspiracy nonsense — The New York Times, New York Newsday, the Los Angeles Times and so on. But then Trump won the election, and suddenly the Russia conspiracy seemed totally believable. What else could explain how Americans could put this boob in the White House?

The subsequent three years of breathless Russia coverage was based entirely on the word of one cybersecurity firm, CrowdStrike, that the DNC’s emails had been hacked by Russia.

Recall that the DNC wouldn’t allow the FBI or any other U.S. government official anywhere near its computers. That’s precisely why so many cybersecurity experts doubted that it was the Russians: The FBI was never allowed to perform its own investigation.

CrowdStrike was founded by Ukrainian Dmitri Alperovitch (now an American citizen apparently — because who isn’t?) and funded by the fanatically anti-Russian Ukrainian oligarch Viktor Pinchuk Foundation.

Talk about interfering with our democracy! Alperovitch and Pinchuk sent one political party and nine-tenths of the American media off on a wild goose chase into Russian collusion that, after years of accusations, investigations and embarrassing conspiracy-mongering … turned up goose eggs.

The entire Russian insanity was launched by a couple of Ukrainians. I think a lot of us would like to get to the bottom of that.

This is why Trump said to President Zelensky: “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say CrowdStrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people … The server, they say Ukraine has it.”

(How’d you like to be the Ukrainian translator for a Trump conversation?)

Trump has been justly criticized for hiring his daughter and son-in-law at the White House. But at least when he pressures a foreign leader for a favor, it’s to investigate corruption, not to get a prosecutor off his son’s back. Maybe Biden’s son was guilty, maybe he was innocent. But it is a fact that Joe Biden held up foreign aid to a desperately needy ally in exchange for their halting prosecution that implicated his son. It’s not Trump’s fault that Biden is now running for president.

I’ll give the Democrats this: They’ve gotten so good at trying to remove Trump from office that, instead of three years, their insane accusations blow up in their faces within a week.

Media Buries Key Fact About ‘White House Whistleblower’ To Help Democrats


Written by Staff Writer September 22, 2019

URL of the original posting site: https://redrightdaily.com/media-buries-key-fact-about-white-house-whistleblower-to-help-democrats/

This whole business about the White House “Whistleblower” has all the makings of fake news Kavanaugh 2.0 that happened last weekend.

According to a report the now famous anonymous whistleblower who supposedly caught President Trump pressuring the head of Ukraine to have Joe Biden’s son investigated didn’t actually hear the conversation.

CNN’s Stephen Collins reported on Friday that the whistleblower “didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications,” citing an official who spoke with him about the case. (SEE BELOW THE ENTIRE CNN ARTICLE. I’VE HIGHLIGHTED THE SECTION)

Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.

Of course, CNN buried this information 22 paragraphs into the report titled (ironically), “New Revelations deepen Scandal Over Trump Whistleblower Complaint.”

This new fact really complicates accusations that are being made about the President because, this means the “whistleblower” heard the accusations second hand and that their complaint may not even be relevant to what was actually said. To put it simply this “whistleblower” complaint could just be gossip that a person heard from another person. 

This weekend the President defended himself saying, “The Radical Left Democrats and their Fake News Media partners, headed up again by Little Adam Schiff, and batting Zero for 21 against me, are at it again! They think I may have had a “dicey” conversation with a certain foreign leader based on a “highly partisan” whistleblowers. Now that the Democrats and the Fake News Media have gone ‘bust’ on every other of their Witch Hunt schemes, they are trying to start one just as ridiculous as the others, call it the Ukraine Witch Hunt, while at the same time trying to protect Sleepy Joe Biden. Will fail again!”

No doubt CNN buried this fact to try and give more ammunition to Democrats to impeach President Trump unfortunately for them it’s fake news. 

New revelations deepen scandal over Trump whistleblower complaint

(CNN)Washington’s newest scandal, over a whistleblower’s complaint about President Donald Trump, intensified Thursday amid revelations that the White House and Justice Department tried to keep it quiet.

The affair, centering on Trump’s contacts with a leader of a mystery foreign nation — identified in two reports as Ukraine — has also injected a toxic element into relations among the President, the intelligence community and Congress.
It is hard to see how any of this ends well.
Six months after special counsel Robert Mueller shut up shop, the White House again faces suspicion over Trump’s dealings with a foreign power and seems to be taking steps to stop the full story from coming out.
Democrats are rummaging for new skeletons in Trump’s closet and yet another showdown is developing between the executive and Congress that appears almost certain to play out in the courts.
The details of the controversy unleashed when a whistleblower sounded the alarm about the President are complex, disputed according to political allegiance and largely not public.
The Washington Post and The New York Times reported Thursday that the contacts at issue between Trump and the foreign leader involve Ukraine. In the past, some of Trump’s supporters, including his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, have urged the Kiev government to open investigations that the President could use to raise suspicions about his political rivals, including Joe Biden. In a heated exchange with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night, Giuliani denied asking Ukraine to investigate the former vice president, before admitting he had done just that.
The US and Ukraine were in discussions about $250 million in military aid to Kiev this summer that had been delayed by the White House. Giuliani said he didn’t know anything about the package, but that if Trump had used it as leverage to benefit himself politically in any way he would not have done anything wrong.
“The reality is that the President of the United States, whoever he is, has every right to tell the president of another country you better straighten out the corruption in your country if you want me to give you a lot of money. If you’re so damn corrupt that you can’t investigate allegations — our money is going to get squandered,” Giuliani said.

Trump attempted to discredit the whistleblower as “highly partisan” in a series of tweets Friday morning, echoing remarks made by Giuliani on Thursday night. The President said his comments to “a certain foreign leader” were “pitch perfect.”

Trump tweeted: “Strange that with so many other people hearing or knowing of the perfectly fine and respectful conversation, that they would not have also come forward. Do you know the reason why they did not? Because there was nothing said wrong, it was pitch perfect!”
Trump spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25. There is so far no public evidence that the whistleblower’s complaint pertains to this conversation or that there was any abuse of power by Trump. The White House later lifted the hold on aid.
But the potential ramifications of this new storm are already becoming clear and the risks facing the President, the intelligence community and Democrats in Congress are climbing by the day.

Disturbing possibilities

There must at least be a possibility that Trump abused his power or committed a grievous ethical lapse in dealing with the foreign leader.
His defense was not exactly reassuring, considering some of the wild comments the President has made in the company of rogue counterparts such as Russia’s Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
“Is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially ‘heavily populated’ call?” Trump tweeted on Thursday.
CNN reported Thursday that the intelligence community inspector general suggested to the House Intelligence Committee that the complaint raised concerns about multiple actions.
He would not say whether those instances involved Trump, sources familiar with the closed-door briefing told CNN.
The inspector general, Michael Atkinson, was legally unable to discuss the complaint itself, since Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire has declined to hand it over.
Democrats say he is compelled to provide the complaint under whistleblower legislation, and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said his committee may take legal action if it isn’t turned over.
The Washington Post on Wednesday said the complaint referenced a “promise” Trump allegedly made to the unidentified leader. CNN has not confirmed that aspect of the controversy.
The whistleblower didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications, an official briefed on the matter told CNN. Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.
It is hard to know the potential exposure faced by the President.
But given the sensitivity of the issue, the complaint is likely to have come from an official familiar with the scope of presidential power. And it was signed off as “urgent and credible” by the inspector general — a Trump appointee — who thought Congress should know in line with whistleblowing laws.
The implication of such a fact pattern is staggering and opens up the potential of serious misconduct inside the White House — despite Trump’s denials of any wrongdoing.

A President maligned?

If, on the other hand, the alleged behavior by the President does not reach such a bar, the political fallout will be considerable. Trump, acting within his wide Article Two constitutional powers, may have been maligned and there will be accusations that the whistleblower — though moving within the scope of the law — will have overreached.
The President’s suspicion of the intelligence community, which he sees as a “Deep State” bent on overthrowing him, will grow.
If a president cannot trust his own spies, and thinks they are working against him and not the country’s enemies, then America’s national security will be harmed.
The President’s allies are already arguing that the controversy is simply another ruse by House Democrats to damage Trump.
“He has very wide authority, really unchecked authority, to talk to world leaders about anything he deems appropriate as he is representing the United States of America,” said Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union.”If this were able to go forward, any staffer in an agency could constantly hobble a Democratic President, duly elected.”
“This is an unconstitutional argument,” Schlapp said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”
Of course, the White House could clear all this up by explaining the contents of the alleged contacts between the President and the foreign leader. But it is taking the opposite tack.
According to three CNN sources, the White House and the Justice Department advised the director of national intelligence that the complaint isn’t governed by laws covering intelligence whistleblowers.
The revelation is the first known evidence of the White House’s involvement in the standoff. There may be an argument that the content of the President’s communications or an official’s impressions of them sent to Congress are subject to executive privilege.
But the administration’s resistance to scrutiny is already fueling suspicions of a cover-up.
And it throws new light on the role of Attorney General William Barr — who has been accused by critics of shaping special counsel Robert Mueller’s damning revelations to the President’s advantage.
Barr, who served in the same role for President George H.W. Bush, advocates a theory of expansive presidential power, one reason why he has become perhaps Trump’s favorite Cabinet member.

Whistleblowers exposed

House Democrats argue that the White House is yet again adopting a model of presidential power that threatens to tear the checks and balances of the US system to shreds.
Schiff effectively argued that the approach taken by the administration could lead to the quashing of whistleblower claims in the government.
That could lead down a road of power without accountability and in theory impunity for any presidential wrongdoing.
“The impact of this opinion is that if the Department of Justice decides that any employee of the intelligence committee comes forward, follows the law, follows the process, is nonetheless outside the process, they’re not protected,” the California Democrat said.
“Which not only means this whistleblower is not protected, it means no whistleblower is protected. That is the danger of the DOJ’s misinterpretation of the law.”
The fresh confrontation between the White House and the Congress is certain to fuel the frustration of Democrats at the White House’s efforts to evade scrutiny.
And it will add momentum to claims of many grass roots liberals and a growing corps of House Democrats who do not share House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s reluctance to proceed with impeachment.

Haitian Official Who Exposed the Clinton Foundation is Found With Gun-Shot to Head


Reported by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com, | Posted on July 17, 2017

Miami-Dade medical examiner’s record state the official cause of death for Klaus Eberwein was a ‘gunshot to the head’. His death has since been registered as a ‘suicide’ by the government.

However, Eberwein had stated his life was in danger — not long before his ‘suicide’ — due to his actions of exposing the criminal activities of the Clinton Foundation.

According to WND: Eberwein was due to appear next Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors.

He had served as director general of the Haitian government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, for three years.

According to Eberwein, a paltry 0.6 percent of donations granted by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up in the hands of Haitian organizations. A further 9.6 percent ended up with the Haitian government. The remaining 89.8 percent – or $5.4 billion – was funneled to non-Haitian organizations.

“The Clinton Foundation, they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” Eberwein said at a protest outside the Clinton Foundation headquarters in Manhattan last year.

It was reported that Eberwien was in ‘good spirits’ with plans for the future, before the 50-year-old committed ‘suicide’.

“It’s really shocking,” said friend Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.”

What do you think happened?

Also, why is it that the MSM is not reporting on this death?

BREAKING: Diplomat Says He KNOWS The DNC Leaker, ‘They’re NOT Russian, They Are…


waving flagURL of the original posting site: http://clashdaily.com/2016/12/breaking-diplomat-says-knows-dnc-leaker-theyre-not-russian/

This Diplomat comments on the leaking of DNC documents, and what he has to say is SHOCKING.

Craig Murray, the former UK diplomat to Uzbekistan, and close associate of Julian Assange claims on his website that the CIA is lying to the American public:

I have watched incredulous as the CIA’s blatant lie has grown and grown as a media story – blatant because the CIA has made no attempt whatsoever to substantiate it. There is no Russian involvement in the leaks of emails showing Clinton’s corruption. Yes this rubbish has been the lead today in the Washington Post in the US and the Guardian here, and was the lead item on the BBC main news. I suspect it is leading the American broadcasts also.

A little simple logic demolishes the CIA’s claims. The CIA claim they “know the individuals” involved. Yet under Obama the USA has been absolutely ruthless in its persecution of whistleblowers, and its pursuit of foreign hackers through extradition. We are supposed to believe that in the most vital instance imaginable, an attempt by a foreign power to destabilise a US election, even though the CIA knows who the individuals are, nobody is going to be arrested or extradited, or (if in Russia) made subject to yet more banking and other restrictions against Russian individuals? Plainly it stinks. The anonymous source claims of “We know who it was, it was the Russians” are beneath contempt.

As Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians. As I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks – there is a major difference between the two. And it should be said again and again, that if Hillary Clinton had not connived with the DNC to fix the primary schedule to disadvantage Bernie, if she had not received advance notice of live debate questions to use against Bernie, if she had not accepted massive donations to the Clinton foundation and family members in return for foreign policy influence, if she had not failed to distance herself from some very weird and troubling people, then none of this would have happened.

Murray states that after an interview with a journalist from the Guardian, there was an article available for 3 hours that went against the acceptable narrative and actually reported the truth.

Here is an excerpt from the Guardian article:

The Kremlin has rejected the hacking accusations, while the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has previously said the DNC leaks were not linked to Russia. A second senior official cited by the Washington Post conceded that intelligence agencies did not have specific proof that the Kremlin was “directing” the hackers, who were said to be one step removed from the Russian government.

Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, who is a close associate of Assange, called the CIA claims “bullshit”, adding: “They are absolutely making it up.”Leftist Propagandist

“I know who leaked them,” Murray said. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.’

“If what the CIA are saying is true, and the CIA’s statement refers to people who are known to be linked to the Russian state, they would have arrested someone if it was someone inside the United States. America has not been shy about arresting whistleblowers and it’s not been shy about extraditing hackers. They plainly have no knowledge whatsoever.”

Murray continues:

In the UK, one single article sums up the total abnegation of all journalistic standards. The truly execrable Jonathan Freedland of the Guardian writes “Few credible sources doubt that Russia was behind the hacking of internal Democratic party emails, whose release by Julian Assange was timed to cause maximum pain to Hillary Clinton and pleasure for Trump.” Does he produce any evidence at all for this assertion? No, none whatsoever.

What does a journalist mean by a “credible source”? Well, any journalist worth their salt in considering the credibility of a source will first consider access. Do they credibly have access to the information they claim to have?

Now both Julian Assange and I have stated definitively the leak does not come from Russia. Do we credibly have access? Yes, very obviously. Very, very few people can be said to definitely have access to the source of the leak. The people saying it is not Russia are those who do have access.

After access, you consider truthfulness. Do Julian Assange and I have a reputation for truthfulness? Well in 10 years not one of the tens of thousands of documents WikiLeaks has released has had its authenticity successfully challenged. As for me, I have a reputation for inconvenient truth telling…

…The worst thing about all this is that it is aimed at promoting further conflict with Russia. This puts everyone in danger for the sake of more profits for the arms and security industries – including of course bigger budgets for the CIA.

So, who is the whistleblower?

Suggestions in the past, including some hints by Julian Assange himself, have led many to believe that it was Seth Rich. The DNC staffer was found murdered in a ‘robbery gone wrong’ and had nothing taken.

It would explain why the Obama Administration hasn’t arrested anyone.

What do you think? The Media (D) is explicit in its bias, and we don’t have honest reporting any longer, we have partisanship and coverups of real news.propaganda machine

The ‘fake’ news problem is real, but more often than not, it’s what’s not reported that constitutes ‘fake’ news.

Obama Denies Wait Times At VA Led To Deaths…

All you can do is shake your head in disbelief.

Via the transcript from today’s remarks:

[W]ell, we have to find out first of all what exactly happened. And I don’t want to get ahead of the IG report or the other investigations that are being done.

And I think it is important to recognize that the wait times generally — what the IG indicated so far, at least, is the wait times were folks who may have had chronic conditions, were seeking their next appointment, but may have already received service. It was not necessarily a situation where they were calling for emergency services. And the IG indicated that he did not see a link between the wait and them actually dying.

That does not excuse the fact that the wait times in general are too long in some facilities. And so what we have to do is find out what exactly happened. We have to find out how can we realistically cut some of these wait times. There has been a large influx of new veterans coming in. We’ve got a population of veterans that is also aging, as part of the baby boom population. And we’ve got to make sure that the scheduling system, the access to the system, that all those things are in sync.

VA Supervisor: Older Veterans Should be “Shot in the Head” to Save Money

Exclusive: Whistleblower reveals new Veterans Affairs scandal

 

by Paul Joseph Watson | May 21, 2014

A Veterans Affairs whistleblower has exclusively revealed to Infowars that the facility at which he works has engaged in a of cover-up in response to the VA hospital scandal, while also relating the story of how one supervisor expressed his desire to see older veterans “taken outside and shot in the head.”

The whistleblower, who wishes to remain anonymous for obvious reasons, works at a large 250 acre VA hospital in North Carolina. He presented his credentials to us which checked out. The VA employee lifted the lid on a number of shocking details during an interview with Sgt. Joe Biggs.

“Recently there’s been a very rapid race to move records, boxes, change labels, whatever it may be, they’re putting them in rooms that nobody would look in….and there’s multiple times that I have seen in the past week or so them moving boxes….so apparently they’re hiding their tracks somewhere,” stated the VA employee, adding that the activity preceded an inspection of the facility, suggesting it was part of an effort to conceal evidence in the aftermath of the secret waiting list scandal.

Even more chilling was a warning sent out to VA employees at the facility which, according to the whistleblower, was meant to get across the message, “Do you see what happens to the people that try to get things straight around here, they’re not here anymore,” a tone the whistleblower described as “pretty telling.”

The employee also revealed the shocking attitude of one supervisor at the hospital towards older veterans, who asserted that older vets “should be taken outside and shot in the head because they’re worthless.” The individual still works at the hospital and was not disciplined for his comments.

“How can you stop the corruption and the insanity if you have a supervisor who is a non-veteran saying these things to veterans, scaring them about their jobs and telling them because they’re an older veteran ‘you ought to be taken outside and shot in the head’,” asked the employee.

The whistleblower also related how he knew veterans that had been denied health care at the hospital. However, since the VA scandal broke in the news, the whistleblower states there has been a huge influx of patients into his facility, a move he describes as “a dog and pony show.”

Explaining that the scandal went way beyond patient care, the whistleblower said that corruption within the VA was “overwhelming,” and that working doctors were being replaced by students and residential doctors on weekends to save money.

“That creates a cost cut on the clinical side which lines the pockets of the upper administration and puts our veterans’ health at risk,” asserted the whistleblower, adding that his facility routinely loses patients and that “there’s lack of care everywhere.”

The employee also revealed that cronyism was rampant within the hospital, with family members of existing staff being hired in preference of veterans in desperate need of employment.

“It’s a huge bureaucracy and it’s a huge game and somebody has to break the corruption,” stated the whistleblower, adding that people were scared to speak out because they might lose their jobs and their pensions.

“There’s more than just what you’re seeing on TV and they’re hiding a lot of things and you’re never going to see it on the mass media,” concluded the whistleblower.

The new revelations come in the aftermath of a scandal that has claimed the lives of at least 40 veterans as a result of them being kept on secret waiting lists. The backlogs which caused the deaths are now known to have occurred in at least 19 states. New questions have also emerged about VA workers gaming the system at the expense of veterans. A whistleblower also revealed how she was ordered to falsify records of appointments at Fort Collins, Colorado to make it appear as if veterans were receiving speedy treatment.

Concerns that the VA scandal represents an example of death panels waiting to happen under Obamacare have been expressed in recent days as Obama himself faces mounting criticism over his failure to address the issue publicly.

“It’s simply unconscionable,” said radio host Rush Limbaugh on his national broadcast Monday. “So you have to ask, the natural assumption is that nobody wants these people to die, even if you add the death panel component, nobody wants these people to die, yet they are. At the very least what we’re dealing with here is a total inability to deal with this. And at worst it’s the death panel being done on purpose.”

The issue of death panels and the eugenicist mindset of people having to die in order to allow others to have jobs or health care has stoked controversy for years, most notably in 2010 when Bill Gates suggested that elderly patients should be denied medical treatment in order to spend the money on hiring more teachers. Newsweek also promoted a similar idea in a 2009 front page story entitled ‘The Case For Killing Granny’.
