The US in the midst of its greatest Constitutional crisis ever. After eight years of the Obama Administration, the top of the FBI and DOJ are is corrupt and led by dirty cops and attorneys. Yet President Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, is no where to be found.
Michelle Malkin was on Hannity last night and she correctly stated that the US in currently in a Constitutional crisis. Malkin said –
This did not just come out of nowhere. I reported over the last eight years about how the Obama Administration and particularly people in the Justice Department thwarted at every turn Inspector General’s investigations. It happened at Justice. It happened at the EPA, Interior, TARP, every single one of these civilian agencies. And so you add the national security implications and dangers of the hijacking of our intelligence agencies and yes we’re in the midst of a constitutional crisis.
US Representative Matt Gaetz notes that in June of last year, Judicial Watch requested all correspondence related to former Assistant Head of the FBI Andy McCabe. None of this information has been provided to date.
In June of 2017, the Justice Department asked the FBI to turn over all of Mr. McCabe’s correspondence to the watchdog group Judicial Watch; so far, none of this correspondence has been made available.
President Trump won the 2016 election with the assistance of many. The voice of his Facebook campaign was a tattooed woman who says he never would have won the election without Facebook.
The BBC reported this weekend that President Trump spent millions on Facebook and was courted by them as a result. They no doubt never thought he would win the election. Now Facebook is under fire for helping Trump win the election.
Jeff Sessions is arguably the worst Attorney General in US history. He has allowed the Mueller Witch-hunt to flourish. The many Obama and Clinton crimes have gone on unabated. No one could have predicted that the Department of Justice would be in this state of affairs after a year of President Trump in office. Here are a dozen reasons why Jeff Sessions should be removed from office now.
1. After accepting the AG job, the next day Sessions recused himself from everything Russia and turned over the US AG Office to the deep state. We now know that the law he quoted to recuse himself was the wrong law and was provided by Obama attorneys.
2. Corrupt and criminal Rod Rosenstein is now running the AG Office, not Sessions. Rosenstein is connected to the Uranium One scandal. When asked, Sessions stated to Congress that Asst AG Rosenstein can investigate himself in a Uranium One criminal probe.
3. It took Sessions months to fire FBI criminal Andy McCabe finally on Friday evening. McCabe should have been fired months ago. Maybe he wasn’t fired sooner because McCabe threatened to take others down with him.
4. Corrupt and criminal Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are still employed by the FBI. They have numerous text messages that show criminal and corrupt actions related to the Hillary email scandal, FISA abuse and the Mueller investigation. Most recently, texts were uncovered by Congress that show they had a relationship with the FISA Court judge who sentenced General Flynn and later was recused. They should not be employed, they should be in jail!
5. Robert Mueller’s criminal and corrupt witch hunt is still in place. It was created on a lie and is still in place after millions of wasted tax payer money. The Mueller investigation is criminal but Sessions won’t shut it down. Mueller is best friend with former FBI Director James Comey and he won’t recuse himself. This investigation is a farce.
The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!
7. Hillary is still walking around – in India no less. Her email fiasco was criminal. Much evidence shows that she was let go before even being interviewed. She destroyed evidence and obstructed justice but she walks free. No investigation from AG Sessions to date covering the criminal Clintons.
8. Uranium One and the sale of 20% of US uranium is yet to be investigated by AG Sessions. This is the real Russia collusion and Sessions won’t touch it.
9. Joe Biden and John Kerry are now embroiled in another Obama – Clinton related play for pay scheme with China. The AG is nowhere to be found.
10. James Clapper, the former disgraced NSA Director was allowed to walk this past week after lying under oath to Congress due to the statute of limitations. His lying was depicted in the movie “Snowden”.
12. Every day the DOJ and FBI are delaying evidence being requested by Congress or Judicial Watch. Names are redacted for no reason other than to cover up deep state crimes. Sessions allows this and his actions arguably show he is behind it.
The country and the President deserve justice and a strong AG. Jeff Sessions is the opposite. His actions are abysmal and non-existent. American needs justice now. Jeff Sessions must go!
The US Debt surpassed $21 Trillion for the first time in history this week. What the MSM won’t tell you is that President Trump’s debt increase is half of Obama’s at the same time in their Presidencies.
President Trump took over in 2017 with nearly $20 trillion of debt and the related interest payments on the debt. He faced headwinds from the Federal Reserve (FED) which had increased interest rates by a full one percent since the 2016 election. In spite of this, President Donald Trump’s debt is half that of Obama’s.
The US Debt since President Trump was inaugurated on January 20th, 2016 through March 1, 2018, increased by slightly more than $1 trillion. On inauguration day the debt was at $19.9 trillion and on March 15, 2018 the debt stood at $21.0 trillion.
Although $1 trillion is a lot of money added to the debt, it is half of what President Obama added during the same time frame in his first year plus in office.
Where President Trump has increased the US Debt to date by only 5.4% , Obama increased the debt by 18.9% or 13.5% more than President Trump.
President Obama inherited a US Debt amount of $10.6 trillion on his inauguration and increased it by more than $2 trillion by March 15, 2010. Obama increased the US Debt amount by nearly $1 trillion more than President Trump in the same respective time in office.
CNBC reported in December 2015 that President Obama oversaw “seven years of the most accommodative monetary policy in U.S. history” (from the Fed). The Fed Funds rate was at zero for most of Obama’s time in office. Finally, in December 2015 the Fed announced its first increase in the Fed Funds rate during the Obama Presidency.
The only Fed Funds Rate increases since 2015 were after President Trump was elected President. The Fed increased the Fed Funds Rate on December 14, 2016, March 15th, 2017, June 14, 2017 and again on December 13, 2017. Four times the Fed has increased rates on President Trump after doing so only once on President Obama late in his 2nd term.
Increases in the Fed Funds Rate increase the cost of borrowing. With $20 trillion in debt, a 1% increase in interest payments equals $200 billion in annual interest payment increases.
President Obama benefited from the lowest possible interest rates possible for most of his eight years and in spite of this, nearly doubled the US Debt from $10 trillion to nearly $20 trillion.
The MSM won’t tell you but President Trump has increased the US debt by half of that of Obama in their first few months in office. As a result America is moving in the right direction for the first time in at least a decade.
A recent study by George Upper at The Western Journal confirms that Facebook’s much-publicized demotion of publishers’ content in users’ news feeds has negatively impacted conservative-leaning publishers significantly more than liberal-leaning outlets.
According to the report –
Liberal publishers have gained about 2 percent more web traffic from Facebook than they were getting prior to the algorithm changes implemented in early February.
On the other hand, conservative publishers have lost an average of nearly 14 percent of their traffic from Facebook.
This algorithm change, intentional or not, has in effect censored conservative viewpoints on the largest social media platform in the world. This change has ramifications that, in the short-term, are causing conservative publishers to downsize or fold up completely, and in the long-term could swing elections in the United States and around the world toward liberal politicians and policies.
According to the report, perhaps no media entity has been hit as hard as TGP as shown 2nd from the right in the chart below –
Facebook is now admitting their liberal bias and actions to suppress the conservative America loving point of view –
Campbell Brown, a former anchor on NBC and CNN who now leads Facebook’s news partnerships team, told attendees at a recent technology and publishing conference that Facebook would be censoring news publishers based on its own internal biases:
“This is not us stepping back from news. This is us changing our relationship with publishers and emphasizing something that Facebook has never done before: It’s having a point of view, and it’s leaning into quality news. … We are, for the first time in the history of Facebook, taking a step to try to to define what ‘quality news’ looks like and give that a boost.” (Emphasis added.)
Based on The Western Journal’s analysis — and an overwhelming amount of insider reports from new media publishers — it is clear that Facebook’s definition of “quality news” is news with a liberal slant.
Facebook is now admitting their bais and disdain for Americans and those who love this country and the Bill of Rights. It’s sad that today the leaders of Facebook would rather partake in Nazi Hitler anti free speech tactics to support the anti American liberal point of view like Hitler faithful than support American’s rights to free speech and freedom of the press.
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Tuesday morning reported that its small business optimism index for February rose by 0.7 percentage points from 106.9 in January to come in at 107.6. The consensus estimate from economists called for the index to increase by 0.2 percentage points to 107.1.The February index is the second-highest ever, trailing only the 108 reading posted in 1983. For 2017, the average monthly index was 104.8, the highest ever. The previous annual record was 104.6 set in 2004.

Obama appointed liberal activist Judge, Amy Berman Jackson, is currently overseeing the most important court case in US history.
On January 3rdwe reported that Paul Manafort’s filing of a suit against the “Deep State” DOJ (Jeff Sessions), Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein and Corrupt Investigator Robert Mueller would shut down Mueller’s corrupt investigation!
Now we know that the Obama appointed DC judge replaced another judge and is overseeing the case.
In early January former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort sued the DOJ, Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein and demanded the Mueller investigation be shut down!
We have reported for months on the many criminal and corrupt actions taken by numerous parties related to the Mueller investigation. Mueller never should have taken on the job in the first place due to numerous conflicts. He is best friends with fired leaker and former FBI Director James Comey. He met with Comey shortly before Comey testified with Congress and for this alone he should have recused himself. The team Mueller built to attack President Trump and have him removed is all Deep State attorneys and crooks. Mueller’s record in the past is scattered with actions that let the Clintons off scot-free on numerous occasions when they should have been put in jail.
We now know that the FBI had an investigation into the Clintons and moneys they received from Russia in return for giving Russia 20% of all US uranium. Prior to the Obama administration approving the very controversial Uranium One deal in 2010 giving Russia 20% of America’s Uranium, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin. The FBI approved the deal anyway. We also know that Rosenstein and Mueller were the ones who allowed the Uranium One deal to go forward. This was the real Russia collusion story involving the US government.
We know that Mueller’s team illegally obtained emails related to the Trump transition team and these emails were protected under attorney-client privilege. Mueller and his entire team should have resigned after this.
But the perhaps one of the most damning aspects of the Mueller investigation is that it was not legal. The corrupt Mueller investigation is tasked with finding a crime that does not exist in the law. It is a legal impossibility. Mueller is being asked to do something that is manifestly unattainable.
FOX News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett stated in an article last year the fact that the entire Mueller investigation is lawless. Jarrett argued that –
… George Papadopoulos pled guilty to a single charge of making a false statement to the FBI. He was not charged with so-called “collusion” because no such crime exists in American statutory law, except in anti-trust matters. It has no application to elections and political campaigns.
It is not a crime to talk to a Russian. Not that the media would ever understand that. They have never managed to point to a single statute that makes “colluding” with a foreign government in a political campaign a crime, likely because it does not exist in the criminal codes.
Jarrett then turned his attention to Corrupt Hillary –
It is against the law for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to funnel millions of dollars to a British spy and to Russian sources in order to obtain the infamous and discredited Trump “dossier.” The Federal Election Campaign Act (52 USC 30101) prohibits foreign nationals and governments from giving or receiving money in U.S. campaigns. It also prohibits the filing of false or misleading campaign reports to hide the true purpose of the money (52 USC 30121). This is what Clinton and the DNC appear to have done.
Most often the penalty for violating this law is a fine, but in egregious cases, like this one, criminal prosecutions have been sought and convictions obtained. In this sense, it could be said that Hillary Clinton is the one who was conspiring with the Russians by breaking campaign finance laws with impunity.
But that’s not all. Damning new evidence appears to show that Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. Secret recordings, intercepted emails, financial records, and eyewitness accounts allegedly show that Russian nuclear officials enriched the Clintons at the very time Hillary presided over a governing body which unanimously approved the sale of one-fifth of America’s uranium supply to Russia.
If this proves to be a corrupt “pay-to-play” scheme, it would constitute a myriad of crimes, including bribery (18 USC 201-b), mail fraud (18 USC 1341), and wire fraud (18 USC 1343). It might also qualify for racketeering charges (18 USC 1961-1968), if her foundation is determined to have been used as a criminal enterprise.
The US statutory law is clear and Jarrett points it out. He concluded with the following –
Until now, no one had legal “standing” to argue in court that the appointment of Mueller was illegal. The criminal charges [against Manafort and Papadopoulos] change all that. The two defendants will be able to argue before a judge that Mueller’s appointment by Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein violated the special counsel law.
As I pointed out in a column last May, the law (28 CFR 600) grants legal authority to appoint a special counsel to investigate crimes. Only crimes. He has limited jurisdiction. Yet, in his order appointing Mueller as special counsel (Order No. 3915-2017), Rosenstein directed him to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.” It fails to identify any specific crimes, likely because none are applicable.
To put it plainly, Mueller is tasked with finding a crime that does not exist in the law. It is a legal impossibility. He is being asked to do something that is manifestly unattainable. Manafort sued the DOJ, Mueller and Rosenstein because what they are doing is not supported by US Law.
Manafort’s case argues in paragraph 33 that the special counsel put in place by crooked Rosenstein gave crooked and criminal Mueller powers that are not permitted by law –
But paragraph (b)(ii) of the Appointment Order purports to grant Mr. Mueller further authority to investigate and prosecute “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.” That grant of authority is not authorized by DOJ’s special counsel regulations. It is not a “specific factual statement of the matter to be investigated.” Nor is it an ancillary power to address efforts to impede or obstruct investigation under 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).
Manafort’s case is solid. The entire Mueller investigation should be thrown out.
Judge Amy Berman Jackson has horrible far left record on the bench and will no doubt do all she can to keep the corrupt Mueller investigation in place.
In 2013 Judge Jackson rejected arguments from the Catholic Church that Obamacare’s requirements that employers provide cost free coverage to contraceptive services is contrary to their religious beliefs and violated their religious and free speech freedoms.
Yesterday the Democrats on the Intelligence Committee released their FISA memo. It includes many contradictions, including going against what former FBI Director James Comey testified under oath.
The Democrats’ FISA memo claims multiple sources corroborated elements of the anti-Trump Steele dossier; Catherine Herridge reported at FOX News that the Democratic memo in the least appears to contradict testimony of James Comey.
Herridge’s piece was longer than the piece noted above. In the below tweet, FOX news gives more than 7 minutes in her analysis and rebuttal of the phoney Democrat FISA Memo.
The Democrats have made so many lies it is now impossible to keep them all in order. The dike is beginning to crumble. Now all we need is an AG who will bring a barrage of justice on the entire Obama – Clinton cabal.
Deep State uses the media (MSM) whenever they want a particular farce spread throughout the industry. The MSM complies with an article where a reporter announces anonymous sources have shared whatever made up story line the deep state wants publicized. No one in the media is more accommodating to the deep state lately than ‘old faithful’ – Yahoo’s Michael Isikoff.
Victoria Toensing the attorney for William Douglas Campbell, the FBI informant in the sale of the Canadian firm Uranium One to Russia, is asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a leak investigation into unnamed federal officials who leaked false and illegal information on her client.
Toensing’s claim states that –
…the leakers disparaged her client in an effort to silence him from providing testimony to Congress regarding his role in exposing Russia’s long-term strategy to dominate the global uranium market and how Moscow achieved its goal in 2010 of obtaining roughly 20 percent of the U.S. uranium mining industry, according to a letter delivered to the DOJ.
Carter notes that Toensing’s claim references –
…several articles that she alleges contain false information regarding Campbell. On Nov.16, 2017 a Reuters article by Joel Schectman and on Nov. 17, 2017 a Yahoo News story by Michael Isikoff referred to unnamed federal officials. Both outlets described these officials as having “detailed knowledge” of Campbell’s role as an undercover FBI informant.
This is not the first time of late that we hear Isikoff’s name related to deep state media messaging. Earlier this month, it was reported that Isikoff’s Yahoo report was used in obtaining FISA warrants to spy on President Trump while at the same time Isikoff was working with the DNC.
WikiLeaks Julian Assange tweeted evidence that Isikoff was secretly working for the DNC in September of 2016, the same time his FISA article was released –
Emails reveal that Michael Isikoff, whose Yahoo News article based on the “Steele dossier” was used to obtain the FISA interception warrant against the Trump campaign’s Carter Page, was secretly “working with” the DNC. https://t.co/zsRlb9CcVmpic.twitter.com/dkc4JIV0XN
“I spoke to a delegation of 68 investigative journalists from Ukraine last Wednesday at the Library of Congress – the Open World Society’s forum – they put me on the program to speak specifically about Paul Manafort and I invited Michael Isikoff whom I’ve been working with for the past few weeks and connected him to the Ukrainians,” Democratic consultant Alexandra Chalupa wrote to Luis Miranda, communications director of the Democratic National Committee.
The memo on FISA abuse prepared by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and released earlier this year states:
The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016 Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focused on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News. The Page FISA application incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News—and several other outlets—in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington D,C, in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed.”
While discussing his story being one of the justifications in the FISA warrant application against Page during an episode of his podcast, “Skullduggery,” Isakoff claimed that he was “stunned.”
That is significant because the article, written by veteran reporter Michael Isikoff, is itself based on the unverified dossier. Isikoff was among a small group of reporters who in September 2016 was briefed on the dossier by Steele and Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. (RELATED: Inside Fusion GPS’s Media Outreach Campaign)
A private investigator who knows both Steele and Isikoff told The Daily Caller last year that the pair are good friends, having been fixtures of the Washington, D.C. journalism circuit for decades.
The FISA application made no mention of the link between the Isikoff article and the dossier. Instead, the article was treated as corroborating evidence for the dossier. The memo says that the FISA application “incorrectly assesse[d]” that the Isikoff article was based on information separate from the dossier.
“That’s truly insane,” Page told TheDC on Friday about the Isikoff article’s link to the FISA.
The Daily Caller notes that Page is suing Yahoo over Isikoff’s article.
Isikoff first garnered attention in the late 1990’s for assisting in a Clinton cover-up. While working at Newsweek he obtained information on the Monica Lewinski scandal but did not report it. Matt Drudge did report on the Lewinski scandal which was the Drudge Report’s coming out event changing the news media forever.
Isikoff is expected to soon release a book about Russia and the 2016 election. This too no doubt is another fiction which is probably supported by deep state operatives. He’s deep state’s old faithful after all.
