COMEY: DOSSIER WAS UNVERIFIED BEFORE AND AFTER FBI USED IT TO OBTAIN SPY WARRANTS

Former FBI Director James Comey told Congress Friday that the FBI had not verified the Steele dossier prior to relying on the salacious document to obtain spy warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

According to a transcript of Comey’s testimony released on Saturday, the former FBI chief also asserted that it was “not necessary” for the FBI to assess the sources that dossier author Christopher Steele used to compile his report, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign.

“I think I’ve dealt with warrants where you just identify that your primary [confidential informant], or primary source, has subsources, and so long as the court is aware of that phenomenon and that you’re speaking to the reliability of the primary source, to my mind, that’s a totally legit warrant application,” he said.

OCASIO-CORTEZ SPOX REFUSES TO DIVULGE WHERE SHE STANDS ON BDS MOVEMENT

A spokesperson for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to share the incoming congresswoman’s stance on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement when asked on Friday.

The official BDS website describes the movement as one trying to uphold “the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.”

Conversely, many Jewish organizations view the movement through a lens of anti-Semitism. The Anti-Defamation League says that the BDS movement “rejects Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state” and “is the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence.”

Trump Family Is Worse Than Al Capone’s Criminal Empire, Says Democratic Rep Steve Cohen

Tennessee Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen said President Donald Trump and his family make gangsters Al Capone and Frank Nitti like “good guys.”

“It’s a criminal enterprise that he and his family have been engaged in, to run for president and once they got the presidency they monetized it,” Cohen said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Weekends with Alicia Witt.” “They’ve done it at the Trump Tower. They’ve done it at the Trump hotels. They’ve done it with the Saudis.”

Three Major Revelations From James Comey’s Interview With Lawmakers

Former FBI Director James Comey took part in a closed-door interview with congressional lawmakers on Friday, with the release of the transcript leading to a few notable revelations.

During the questioning, Comey noted that Donald Trump was not part of the initial investigation into Russian election meddling, confessed that the infamous Steele dossier was not verified either before or after they used it to obtain a FISA warrant, and suddenly couldn’t recall things when put on the spot.

OCASIO-CORTEZ: I COME FROM SEPHARDIC JEWS WHO FLED TO PUERTO RICO

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of 435 members of the incoming US House of Representatives, said on Monday that members of her family were Sephardim who were forced to flee to Puerto Rico during the Spanish Inquisition.

Ocasio-Cortez was speaking at an event marking the eighth and final night of Hanukkah, at a gathering held with the Jews for Racial and Economic Justice. She thanked the organization on a social media account for assembling the festivities.

Five Eyes Against Huawei

Washington has asked Ottawa to arrest Meng Wanzhou and to extradite her. This young woman is the financial director and daughter of the founder of Huawei, the Chinese Telecom Giant. She was arrested on 6 December in Canada.

The motive for the war undertaken by Washington against Huawei is deep-rooted and spurious are the justifications.

The heart of the problem is that the Chinese firm uses a system of encryption that prevents the NSA from intercepting its communications. A number of governments and secret services in the non-Western world have begun to equip themselves exclusively with Huawei materials, and are doing so to protect the confidentiality of their communications.

CONNECTING THE DOTS: CRACK, CONTRAS, AND THE CIA

This 1996 interview with Gary Webb took place after his “Dark Alliance” newspaper series made waves across the country for piecing together the puzzle of the US crack epidemic.

The pipeline of CIA backed drug smuggling into the country and money smuggling out of the country to support the Nicaraguan Contras was wide open from the mid 1970s on, with players using everything from their shoes to freighters to move cocaine.

Webb was widely smeared by the CIA’s favorite newspapers (The New York Times, the Washington Post, The LA Times) shortly after this interview.

He was eventually vindicated, but not before his career was destroyed. He was found dead of an apparent suicide in 2005. The price of being a whistleblower?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Today is the anniversary of the day
that investigative journalist Gary Webb
shot himself in the head TWICE.

Historic Debt Is At The Core Of Our Economic Decline

Debt in itself is not necessarily just a tool to gain more wealth; it is also a tool to change and mold societies through financial leverage and disaster. To understand who is creating any fiscal downturn, and to understand who benefits from economic crisis, one only needs to consider who controls the debt.

Incoming House Judiciary Chair Planning To End Probe Into FBI, DOJ

During a break during former FBI Director James Comey's heated closed-door testimony on Capitol Hill on Friday, incoming House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler confirmed to reporters what many had already suspected: That Nadler (and probably his fellow Democratic leaders) would put the kibosh on the House's investigation into alleged political bias at the highest levels of the FBI and DOJ as they launched an investigation into the Trump campaign - an investigation that eventually morphed into the Mueller probe.

While Democrats prepare to ramp up investigations into everything from Trump's "war on the media" to his involvement in his family business, Nadler told a group of reporters that he intends to end the House Judiciary Committee's involvement in the Congressional probe as soon as he takes the reins next year.

Trump Proclaims "No Collusion!" As Supporters Highlight Inconsistencies In Cohen Testimony

Washington media exploded Friday night following the publication of sentencing memos filed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and prosecutors with the SDNY which called for Cohen to serve a "substantial" prison sentence (NY prosecutors recommended a "slight downward variance" of 42 months), arguing that the attorney's decision to rat on his former boss with his back against the wall wasn't a noble act and didn't excuse his many criminal acts - from bank fraud to violations of campaign finance laws - that were committed with the assumption of impunity, and without the knowledge of the family Cohen has claimed to be trying to protect.

Friends in high places: Michael Cohen was paid more than FOUR MILLION dollars for promising several companies, including AT&T, access to President Trump, prosecutors say

Michael Cohen was paid more than $4 million by several firms for promising access to his former client Donald Trump.

A federal prosecutor told a judge on Friday that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen should spend between 51 and 63 months in prison for a range of federal crimes including tax evasion and violating campaign finance laws.

Now federal prosecutors provided new details on the extent of former Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen’s attempts to cash in on his access to President Trump.

They claimed that Cohen extracted more than $4 million from major corporations in return for his supposed insight into White House policy making.

Dept. of Justice Admits Flu Shot Is Most Dangerous Vaccine In US

The flu shot is only the fifth most popular vaccine in the United States, however it is by far the most dangerous, according to a report released by the Department of Justice that confirm more than half of all claims settled by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program involve the influenza vaccine.

As reported by Health Impact News, during the period covering 16 August to 15 November 2013, 139 claims were settled by the Vaccine Court, 70 of which received compensation. Of these settled claims, 42 – or 60 percent – were for injuries caused by the flu vaccine. The remaining 40 percent were for injuries caused by 11 other vaccines.

SENATORS WORKING TO SLIP ISRAEL ANTI-BOYCOTT LAW THROUGH IN LAME DUCK

DEMOCRATIC SEN. BEN Cardin is making a behind-the-scenes push to slip an anti-boycott law into a last-minute spending bill being finalized during the lame-duck session, according to four sources familiar with the negotiations.

The measure, known as the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, was shelved earlier amid concerns about the infringement of free speech, after civil liberties groups argued that the original version would have allowed criminal penalties for Americans who participate in a political boycott of Israel. Some of the more aggressive elements of the provision have been removed under pressure, but the American Civil Liberties Union, which spearheaded the initial opposition to the bill, is still strongly opposed.

NEOCONS SABOTAGE TRUMP'S TRADE TALKS - HUAWEI CFO TAKEN HOSTAGE TO BLACKMAIL CHINA

CNN reports that White House chief of staff John Kelly is expected to resign soon. There have been similar rumors before, but this time the news may actually be true. That is bad for Trump and U.S. policies. Kelly is one a the few counterweights to national security advisor John Bolton. His replacement will likely be whoever Bolton chooses. That will move contFrol over Trump policies further into the hands of the neo-conservatives.

The Russia Investigation Is About Criminalizing Peace

“For those who long wondered why throughout the presidential campaign Trump could not bring himself to say a critical word about Russian President Vladimir Putin, we now know the answer: Trump was hoping to do business in Russia, and doing so would require the approval of Putin.” – USA Today Opinion

Make no mistake, the mainstream left and state serving-media voices are trying to gaslight an entire generation into believing any candidate that wants peace with Russia may be a foreign conspirator worthy of prison, shame, and family persecution.

Former congressman Ron Paul, as a peace presidential candidate, did not regurgitate war propaganda against Russia either. Neither did Senator Rand Paul when he ran. What Paul hotel do you see in Moscow? Yet for future generations, many in the media want to ensure no such candidate ever runs again without baked-in misgivings of treason and criminality.

Meet the Senators Who Took Saudi Money

The top recipient of Saudi lobbying firm contributions among senators who voted against the measure was Dean Heller, Republican of Nevada, who received $27,150. Heller’s vote against the resolution on Wednesday was notable given that he had previously voted against an arms sale to Saudi Arabia and was a co-sponsor of legislation that would have prohibited the U.S. military from refueling Saudi warplanes.

Heller’s haul from Saudi lobbyists was closely followed by Roger Wicker, Ted Cruz, and Roy Blunt, Republicans all, who have received $25,550, $23,000, and $19,250, respectively, from Saudi lobbyists over the past two years. On the campaign trail, Cruz called the possibility of the Saudi government ordering the murder of Jamal Khashoggi “troubling” and said “there should be real consequences for that.” His vote Wednesday was to block one of those consequences.

Same Judge Amy Berman Jackson Who Tossed Manafort in Solitary – Allows Mueller to File Manafort Breach Document Under Seal

Robert Mueller filed Paul Manafort’s brief under seal Friday so we may never know what Trump’s former campaign manager said to breach his plea deal with the special counsel.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson, a corrupt Obama appointee allowed Mueller to keep the Manafort breach document a secret. A redacted version may still be released to the public.

Mueller’s move to keep this document under seal is to keep President Trump in the dark, says former US Attorney Terree Bowers.

Ouch! Don Jr. mocks 'socialist' Ocasio-Cortez with dog-eating meme, only for her to remind him that she is 'a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month'

Rep-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hit back at Trump Jr. with the not-so subtle reminder that she will be 'a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month', after he posted a meme implying that socialists eat dogs.
On Thursday, the president's son took time out of his day to upload a meme to Instagram that he wrote he found to be particularly 'funny cuz it's true!!!'
The meme featured a picture of Ocasio-Cortez, 29, a democratic socialist from New York, speaking with media, paired with the words: 'Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?'

Hypocrisy Is Baked Into The Policy Process

By Veronique de Rugy

I have written in the past about the profound inconsistencies that exist in government. For instance, Congress routinely passes legislation that works against the consequences of existing statutes. A good example is the nest of legislation regulating agriculture. It includes provisions that increase the price of food (e.g., the sugar program) and others that lower the price of food for some buyers (e.g., food stamps).

Barr a drug dealing assassin?

***
According to former Bush-CIA black ops specialist Chip Tatum, Barr was part of Operation 40, an Agency-linked criminal gang that moved huge quantities of drugs and was involved in many high-level political assassinations, including those of the Kennedies, Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, and dozens of others. Ironically, Trump—who tossed a few rhetorical punches at the Bush Crime Family during the 2016 Republican primaries—has just nominated a man who represented the Bush CIA drug cartel, both within the CIA itself (1973-1977) and later when he served as “Opium Poppy” Bush’s Attorney General.

Lawyers stopping Comey from answering questions in Hill testimony, Issa says

Former FBI Director James Comey’s lawyers have prevented him from answering a number of questions during Friday’s closed-door testimony before House lawmakers, according to a lawmaker in the room.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., told reporters that some lawmakers have been frustrated with the testimony so far and that Comey didn’t seem upset about being told by his lawyers that he doesn’t have to answer certain questions.

"One of the disappointments of this deposition so far has been the amount of times in which the FBI believes that Congress doesn’t have a right to know," Issa said.

FLASHBACK - HILLARY THE SPY?

Easy means of delivering secrets using the weak private email server. Easy means of accepting payment through a "charitable" foundation!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

Judge Orders State and Justice Departments to Reopen Clinton Email Case

A federal judge has ordered the U.S. State and Justice Departments to reopen the case to determine if Hillary Clinton used a private email server to avoid public disclosure laws during her tenure as Secretary of State.

In doing so, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth, an appointee of Ronald Reagan, eviscerated the previous administration’s claims of transparency, something President Obama touted throughout his time in the White House.

“Faced with one of the gravest modern offenses to government openness,” Lamberth penned in his opinion, “(the Obama administration’s) State and Justice departments fell far short” of the legal requirements behind the Freedom of Information Act.

The ruling was in response to a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, seeking emails related to the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi.

Senator Hirono: Democrats Struggle To Relate To Voters Due To 'How Smart We Are'

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said on Tuesday that Democrats have a hard time connecting with voters because of how "smart" Democrats are and because Democrats "know so much."

Hirono made the remarks while answering a question from journalist Dahlia Lithwick at the "Bend Towards Justice" conference in Washington, D.C. about what Democrats need to do to make their voters care more about the judicial system.

"One of the things that we Democrats have a really hard time is connecting to people's hearts instead of here [points at brain]," Hirono began. "We're really good at shoving out all the information that touch people here [points to brain] but not here [points to heart]."
