China’s Economy is “Going Down” – China’s Economic Growth Rate is Less than the US’s Rate of Growth

A live report from Hong Kong, China

You can feel it in Hong Kong. The economy is sluggish. The question is – is the slowing Hong Kong Economy related to the protests which clearly have negatively impacted the local Hong Kong businesses or is the Hong Kong downturn related to a slowing China economy. Now we know the answer.

We’ve reported for months and again a week ago that President Trump has the US in the position that it can only win in a deal with China. President Trump’s economy is on fire – more Americans are working than every before, unemployment is at 50 year lows, wages are way up and the stock market is at record highs.

A week ago CNBC’s Jim Cramer said that the US is enjoying its greatest economy in his lifetime –

The US in in the position any country would want to be in when dealing with another country in trade talks. However, the Chinese regime is in a lethal position and has only two choices. The regime can either give the US what it wants or implode.

China Needs a Deal with the US (i.e. they don’t just want it) –

As were reported in a post in August President Trump recognizes that China is in an all out war with the US in regards to information and economics. For years Western leaders have done nothing but negotiate into weak positions, never standing up to the Communist regime. Former US Presidents treated China like they did Russia 50 years ago, as their superior always giving them what they wanted and never standing up to their abuse and criminal acts.

President Trump knows that China needs the US now more than ever but the US doesn’t need China.

We posted a presentation from former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon regarding China. He discussed how China is at economic war with the US. He said America was losing until President Trump. Then he added this:

Well here’s the game and right now we are converging on a point and they understand this. We could take the whole thing down. We can take, the whole thing’s built on a house of sand…

If they [China] devalue their currency they are just going to flood more out. They got $3 trillion of reserves and trust me, in a New York second that thing would flood out in a second. That’s what their own people think about their economy. We’ve allowed these guys to push us around. We’ve allowed these guys to take the South China Sea…

This trade war is going to end in victory and what you’re going to see is a reorientation of the entire supply chain out of China…

Bannon is right. We reported in May that just like the US in 2008, a perfect storm is building in China. The excessive and extravagant construction projects, cash-flow challenges and lack of demand in China all could combine for a major financial disaster. Trump is right – now is the time to make a deal with China.

As the movie The Big Short showed, in 2008 few individuals saw the US sub-prime crisis before it raised its head.

The cause of the 2008 sub-prime crisis is discussed in (my book) Falling Eagle, Rising Tigers:

Politicians would have you believe that the 2008 financial meltdown was related to the more recent actions of one party or the other, but the roots of the 2008 housing market crisis really began in the 1930s with the creation of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), which guaranteed banks’ mortgage risks and the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA), which effectively insured mortgages by purchasing mortgages from lenders. Both shifted risks from the lenders to the US taxpayers. Then in 1977, the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) was signed into law by President Jimmy Carter. This law was designed to promote home ownership for minorities by prohibiting banks from refusing mortgages in poor areas due to the loan’s high risk. In addition, mortgage lenders were required under the 1975 Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) to provide data about who they lent to. Then in 1991, HMDA rules were tightened and included specific demands for racial equality in the institution’s lending.

Credit-worthiness was no longer relevant in the US and the volume of subprime loans exploded. The government had inserted itself in the mortgage business. Like most government initiatives, their plans were doomed. Americans lacking the ability to pay for mortgages were provided mortgages at teaser rates that when fully adjusted would never be paid. This ultimately climaxed in 2008 with the subprime crisis that sent shock waves around the world and put financial markets in a tailspin.

A financial meltdown is in the works in China

Over the past few decades, China opened its borders and corporations around the world fled to China due to its cheap capital and meager payroll costs. As a result, China’s economy exploded. Again, from Falling Eagle, Rising Tigers:

While the US is moving more and more towards a welfare state, China is moving more and more towards prosperity. “Since the launch of economic reform in 1978 more people (in China) have been made materially better off in a shorter span of time than ever before in human history.”

China’s rise out of poverty has been dramatic. For example, considering a consumption threshold of $1 a day using the 1993 Power Purchasing Parities (PPP), the World Bank tracked a reduction of poverty from 652 million Chinese people in 1981 to 135 million in 2004. China’s anti-poverty performance is even remarkable with a standard of $1.25 a day at 2005 PPP. “The numbers in poverty by this measure dropped from 848 million in 1981 to 351 million in 2004. This denotes that there were 517 ($1 standard) or 497 million ($1.25 standard) people who had escaped from absolute poverty during 1981-2004.” A half a billion Chinese citizens have risen out of poverty due to China’s changing policies!

The Chinese were relentless in their efforts to obtain Western technology and grow their economy. They set up trade barriers and manipulated their currency in ways that helped China. The US was at a disadvantage in trade resulting in massive deficits in the billions.

Along comes the Trump Administration, the first administration to address China’s unfair trade advantage. The timing of Trump’s tariffs is not good for China as there are more pressing issues that must be addressed. President Trump is a shrewd negotiator and he obviously believes now is the time to encourage China to make changes to their trade barriers with the US. China may have no choice but to go with what the US offers to keep its economy afloat.

The more pressing issues for China surround real estate, in a manner similar to the US in 2008. As China grew, it invested in its infrastructure and in addition, it invested in large housing projects throughout the country. These efforts helped bolster China’s already fast growing economy.

The problem is that China over invested in these random properties all over China and these properties today remain empty.

(See below pictures of real estate projects the middle of China (Hubei Province) – massive but mostly empty.)

There simply are not enough people in the area where these massive complexes were built that make enough money to afford living in these communities. It appears that the Chinese communists misunderstanding of supply and demand economics may be their downfall.

Some say, no problem, China will just move all the peasants to these massive complexes. This will be devastating. First of all China needs to feed them. Secondly, as we have learned in the US, people on the dole with no work tend to get involved in drugs and crime. The human spirit needs a purpose – idle hands are the devil’s workshop!

These many properties throughout China sit unoccupied, and there is a cost to this. Bloomberg reported in September 2018 –

Cash-to-short-term debt levels at more than 80 publicly traded real estate companies tracked by Bloomberg were 133 percent on average in the first half, the worst since the first six months of 2015 and down from 297 percent a year earlier. Almost a quarter of developers sport a ratio below 50 percent.

In addition, Bloomberg noted:

But while business has been booming, developers have also been piling on the debt. Firms have been selling more bonds in the domestic market — and at the cheapest rates as investors shrug off default concerns. Those with dollar-denominated obligations, meanwhile, face higher borrowing costs as the U.S. Federal Reserves continues on its tightening path.

The amount of debt related to China’s over development is massive. The total amount is unknown with S&P estimating the amount not reported by local communities and banks being over $6 trillion:

China may be sitting on a hidden debt pile of as much as 40 trillion yuan ($6 trillion), concealed off-balance-sheet by the country’s local governments, according to research from S&P Global Ratings.

Many local governments in China raise debt and hold it off their balance sheet, in order to avoid lending limits imposed by central authorities. S&P says that this is a growing problem within the country, and that the amount of debt held this way has likely ballooned in recent years.

The government may have to take over these debts as they become insolvent –

Not only is the level of hidden debt held by local governments in the world’s second largest economy rising, but so too is the risk of those debts being defaulted on. Much of the debt is held by so-called local government financing vehicles (LGFVs), and S&P reports that central government may be willing to let these vehicles file for bankruptcy in the future.

“Default risk of LGFVs is on the rise. China has opened up the possibility of insolvent LGFVs filing for bankruptcy, but managing the default aftermath is a formidable task for top leadership,” the report noted….

The country’s total non-financial sector debt, which includes household, corporate and government debt, will surge to almost 300% of GDP by 2022, up from 242% in 2016. Fears abound that if this debt pile continues to grow, a spectacular blow up could be imminent.

China’s financial crash may make the 2008 crash in the US look small. The implications will no doubt impact the entire world. This is why China can’t afford to mess around with President Trump and must put together a treaty as soon as possible. (Per the video above from Jim Cramer, China will have to move jobs to the US in any deal with the US.)

Now we know that we were right! China’s economy is growing at a rate less than that of the US now.

Analyst Gordan Chang was on Lou Dobbs Tonight. After sharing that China is suffering under near 20% inflation in some areas, Chang shared the following (at the 32:20 mark) –

When you look at the underlying indicators for October, it shows an economy going down. We don’t know where the Chinese economy is and probably the Chinese don’t either. It could be negative (2%), it could be 1% growth. It is less than ours.

As China falls the US economy is the one the world runs to and so the impact to the US will be a massive inflow of money resulting in rising markets due to capital infusions.

President Trump knows this. Now is the time to deal with China. China is the country that can’t wait it out. President Trump knows it. With a deal China will have to move jobs to the US. Without a deal the jobs will move to the US regardless. President Trump has the US in a great position with China!

Senator Lindsey Graham Lies and Says Bogus Dossier that Started Russia Collusion Hoax and Cost the Country Millions Was Believable at First – What Nonsense!

Lying Lindsey Graham is working overtime to create a narrative that prevents him from being outed as one of the original conspirators in the Russia collusion hoax. Anyone who saw the Steele dossier knew it was complete garbage but Lying Lindsey is trying to say that it was believable at first in and effort to protect his hide.

What total BS. We knew it when we first heard of it. We laughed it was so crazy. The Democrats were trying to prevent their candidate from being tied to her criminal actions in selling 20% of the US uranium to Russia in return for $145 million given to her Clinton Foundation. So the Dems used a socialists and Nazi tactic by blaming her competitor (candidate Trump) for doing what they themselves were doing.

The Dems and the Deep State used a bogus dossier that we now know was total BS created in a bar over drinks per the man who is accused of being its producer.

Dan Bongino covered this in his recent podcast –

Here is the support from the FISA report –

When the FBI managed to track down one of Steele’s main sources, the source was amazed that Steele took the information so seriously. It was “word of mouth and hearsay,” the source said, “conversation … with friends over beers.” The source said he takes what his own sources tell him “with a grain of salt,” and that it was, in the end, “just talk.”

Nevertheless, Steele, along with his Democratic sponsors and the highest levels of U.S. law enforcement, used those conversations with friends over beers to throw American politics into chaos and do irreparable harm to a newly elected president.

Yet this was used to launch the following:

  1. FBI investigation
  2. CIA investigation
  3. NSA investigation
  4. House Intelligence Committee investigation
  5. Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigation
  6. Senate Intelligence Committee investigation
  7. Senate Judiciary Committee investigation
  8. Department of Homeland Security investigation
  9. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee investigation
  10. DOJ Inspector General investigation
  11. IC Inspector General investigation

A discussion over beers was used as the support to justify the Deep State’s attempted coup of the President of the United States. Deep State knew the related dossier was garbage but they needed it to perform their coup. Anyone who says it was believable is a liar, including Senator Graham. It was and is garbage.

Mueller Star Witness George Nader Indicted on Child Sex Charges Now Reportedly Involved in Funneling Millions Illegally to Hillary Campaign in 2016

We reported previously that George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman and one of Mueller’s ‘star witnesses’ was charged in a Virginia federal court in July with additional child sex crimes.

Recall, Nader was previously indicted on June 3rd 2019 on child pornography charges.

According to a 3-count indictment unsealed Friday, Nader was charged earlier in July for possessing child pornography and for traveling with a minor to engage in illegal sexual acts.

Nader is accused of transporting a 14-year-old European boy to the United States for sex in the year 2000.

Now it’s being reported that Nader was involved in illegal campaign contributions from foreign entities to the Hillary campaign in 2016 – The following Twitter thread from Tracy Beanz shares it all –

Mueller used a pedophile as his star witness who was also funneling illegal foreign money to the Hillary campaign but Mueller never decided to investigate this. Instead Mueller used the known pedophile in an attempt to take down President Trump. Disgusting!

Democrats Are Unraveling – They Know They Are Caught Pushing a No-Crime Sham Trump Impeachment

The Democrats are not acting like they are winning. The stress of their criminal activities during the Obama Administration coming out and their non-crime impeachment of President Trump is starting to take its toll.

The Democrat’s impeachment sham is coming undone. The more light that shines on it, the worse it gets. Wednesday’s performance by far-left Democrat elites in the law profession proved a disaster. This was the last thing the Democrats expected in the push of their no-crime unconstitutional impeachment of President Trump.

The lone Republican lawyer allowed to present was actually a Democrat. But he was honest in pointing out that the Democrats are doing what they are claiming the President had done –

So of course Speaker Pelosi began Thursday with a press conference where she announced that the Democrats were moving ahead with impeachment, to hell with laws and the constitution. The markets didn’t change as a result as if to say we knew all along the Democrats were going to do this. It’s no surprise but President Trump will still be President.

Next, the President’s daily approval rating went up – a stick in Pelosi’s eye –

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1202615450498224129

Then Pelosi went in front of the press and when asked if she hated President Trump, she blew a gasket –

https://twitter.com/T_S_P_O_O_K_Y/status/1202681008157540354

She didn’t look like she was winning –

She responded claiming she doesn’t hate because she’s a good Catholic. This received responses from good Catholics –

Then Joe Biden at an event in Iowa called a man fat who asked about Biden’s son Hunter and his being placed on a corrupt Ukrainian Gas Company Board –

It looks like Biden gets upset when you talk about the Ukraine – Rudy may know why –

Everybody knew the Democrats would impeach President Trump for a ham sandwich which they are doing. They may be now finally realizing that nobody is shocked with their false accusations or fake news media smears of President Trump. Democrats are losing bigly.

The Two Possible Paths that Pelosi Is Likely to Take In The Schiff Sham Impeachment of President Trump

Based on the public response to the Schiff Sham impeachment of President Trump and the ramifications of going forward, there are two potential scenarios that Speaker Pelosi is most likely to take.

Scenario One – Pelosi and the Democrats vote on impeachment this Thursday or Friday and ram it through before the FISA report comes out on Monday.

To hell with the constitution, orange man bad, full speed ahead. In this scenario the Democrat led House caves to its radical Trump hating base. The time is short to get this done becouse the FISA report is going to be damning. They know it.

This is why they have worked so hard to remove Trump. Not only is he destroying the progressive socialist movement, he is proving that the movement is the absolute wrong direction for America. He not only doesn’t care what they think, he let’s them know it. He is brash and they have never ever in their life times had a Republican stand up to their abusive America hating tactics. He also absolutely destroys their progressive movement by explaining why they are wrong and then taking his positions into action and proving they are wrong.

America has never been stronger economically. The markets are at all time highs. More people are working than ever before. The nation’s GDP stands at around $23 trillion, the highest ever recorded for a country in history and unemployment is at 50 year lows. Never has the economy done better.

With nothing on schedule for Thursday and Friday, the Democrats ram through their impeachment and head home for the holidays. They know they can’t release the date of any impeachment vote, so they will vote before anyone knows what’s happening. No riots, no protests, a quick vote and out of town for the holidays.

Scenario Two – Pelosi delays the impeachment vote till next year and then milks it for as long as she can and then at the last minute decides not to impeach but will let the voters decide.

We wrote previously about the reasons that the impeachment vote would be the end of the Democrat Party –

1. The first reason is simple. The Democrats have no case. President Trump did nothing wrong. Their efforts to tie him to a crime didn’t work. President Trump is innocent and they know it.

2. The Democrats have no idea what will be uncovered or what will be presented in a Senate hearing and they have no control over the Republicans who are in charge of the Senate.

3. The IG’s FISA report is coming out next Monday and it will be damning.

Americans already don’t trust DC and politicians. Soon the Democrats will be synonymous with the swamp in the mainstream. Former Reagan Attorney General Ed Meese believes that the FISA scandal is Obama’s Watergate

Former Attorney General Ed Meese, who served under President Ronald Reagan, compared spying on the Trump campaign to the Watergate scandal in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller.

Meese previewed the impending IG report on FISA abuse, which is expected to drop on Dec. 9. The report is expected to reach a conclusion as to whether intelligence agencies followed the correct processes when obtaining warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Meese debunked the idea that the IG report’s findings should be dismissed because the investigation occurred during the Trump administration, explaining that the IG’s investigations are independent.

Have the Democrats seriously considered how it is going to look when they are attempting to prosecute President Trump on a bogus, at best, ‘crime’ when the Obama appointed IG of the DOJ releases the FISA report showing much corruption and potential crimes related to the Obama gang before and after the 2016 election?

4. US Attorney Durham has a criminal investigation ongoing now that will indict Democrats and their Deep State gang, if any indictments come forth, and they should.

5. One last point that is bad for Pelosi is having a vote and having it bipartisan but against the impeachment. If the vote is taken and the Democrats in the closely contested seats vote against it, it will be proof that the entire thing is what it is – a sham.

Because of this, Pelosi may delay the impeachment hearing into next year. She will continue to harass and abuse the President. The days will go by just like the corrupt Mueller sham and eventually Pelosi will declare that it is too late to impeach, and she will say that she prayed about it and it is best for the country to wait till after the election.

This alternative allows Pelosi to save face with the extremists in her party while not having a vote that would be devastating to her party.

In Summary

The House Democrats may impeach Trump but they might not as well.

The risk if all goes poorly for the Democrats is very high. If the President is wrongfully impeached, and criminal actions by Schiff, the whistleblowers, the Bidens, Kerry and Obama are uncovered in Senate hearings, and the FISA report is totally damaging and Durham starts arresting Democrats and the Deep State for their criminal acts, Americans will be outraged. This scenario could realistically be the end of the Democrat Party – something that some believe is long overdue.

Either way, it is likely that President Trump will not be removed from office and will win the 2020 election.

Svetlana Lokhova Drops Devastating Evidence Deep State Operative Stefan Halper Spied on Her, General Flynn, Papadopoulos, Carter Page and More…

Stefan Halper is a crooked Deep State spy and there is ample evidence that proves this.

We reported in April 2019 that the far-left New York Times finally mentioned Stefan Halper as an individual of interest in the Russia hoax. We identified Halper nearly a year earlier as a spy for the corrupt Obama administration.

The New York Times reported that the Justice Department watchdog, the DOJ’s Inspector General’s department, is coming close to finishing its review of events related to the Russia hoax and FISA abuse.

In the last two paragraphs of the post, the Times states

The inspector general is also scrutinizing another early source of information for the Russia investigation, the people said: Mr. Horowitz’s investigators have been asking questions about the role of Stefan A. Halper, another F.B.I. informant, and his prior work for the bureau.

Agents involved in the Russia investigation asked Mr. Halper, an American academic who teaches in Britain, to gather information on Mr. Page and George Papadopoulos, another former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser.

Unfortunately, the Times was again late in reporting the truth. In May of 2018 TGP reported that Halper was identified as the spy working for the Obama Administration to entrap candidate Trump team members –

It has been widely reported that the Obama administration had a spy working inside the Trump campaign.

As previously reported internet sleuths have determined who the FBI spy was inside the Trump campaign.

Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on Thursday put together a piece where he places an individual by the name of Stefan Halper as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign).

Last week the New York Times reported that the FBI never placed spies within the Trump campaign. This headline was released by the Times in an effort to downplay the upcoming FISA abuse report due out finally next Monday.

And it’s not until you get to the 14th paragraph of its article where The New York Times admits the FBI had a spy targeting and meeting with Trump campaign official George Papadopoulos.

This completely contradicted their headline!?!

Mr. Trump and his allies have pointed to some of the investigative steps the F.B.I. took as evidence of spying, though they were typical law enforcement activities. For one, agents had an informant, an academic named Stefan A. Halper, meet with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos while they were affiliated with the campaign. The president decried the revelation as an “all time biggest political scandal” when it emerged last year.

The F.B.I. did have an undercover agent who posed as Mr. Halper’s assistant during a London meeting with Mr. Papadopoulos in August 2016. And indeed, another Trump adviser, Peter Navarro, reportedly pushed Mr. Halper for an ambassadorship in the Trump administration.

Mr. Halper turned down the job and told the F.B.I. that Mr. Navarro had made the overture, according to a person familiar with the offer.

Now we have adequate evidence that not only did Halper spy on numerous Trump associates, he was paid handsomely by the US taxpayer to do so.

Svetlana Lokhova dropped a twitter thread that totally destroys any claims by the Deep State and the media that Halper was not a spy –

Stefan Halper should be in prison or hung for his actions related to the attempted coup of candidate and President Donald J. Trump and his related crimes and slander related to numerous innocent individuals surrounding the Trump team.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: FBI Attorney from Couple Number Two – Kevin Clinesmith – After Initial Carter Page FISA Application Was Initiated – “I Have Initiated the Destruction of the Republic!”

Obama’s FBI became the place where corrupt actors had promiscuous affairs, ignored crimes from those they liked, prosecuted made up and fraudulent crimes from those they disliked and ruined lives ruthlessly in the process. It will take years, if ever, to mend the reputation of today’s FBI.

One set of FBI lovers have been in the news for the past few years. This disgusting couple, Creepy Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, reportedly maintained an affair while letting Hillary Clinton off of all charges related to her email crimes. They then used taxpayer funded dollars to text each other on their FBI phones and email each other on their FBI laptops about their affair while on company time. They then became the key players in the greatest scandal in US history, the Mueller Special Counsel.

Now a second set of lovers is in the news, Kevin Clinesmith and Sally Moyer. The Washington Post reported over the weekend that a former FBI attorney altered information that supported a FISA warrant that was used to spy on candidate and President Trump. Now Deep State actors are trying to minimize the actions of this new set of Mueller gang lovers who attempted a coup on President Trump’s Administration.

The WaPo reported this weekend and it was quickly uncovered that former Mueller gang members Kevin Clinesmith was involved in altering documents used to obtain a FISA warrant to legitimize spying on candidate and President Trump. The WaPo claims that this will be coming out in the upcoming IG report in December.

We know Clinesmith was mentioned in the IG’s Clinton email report. Attorney 2 from that report was identified by House member Mark Meadows as Kevin Clinesmith. Meadows revealed his identity over the objection of the FBI during a hearing on the IG’s findings. The FBI wanted to keep Clinesmith’s name anonymous claiming he was a counterintelligence specialist –

Horowitz testified that the FBI was withholding the names of the other rogue agents from Congress and the public because “they work on counterintelligence” and can’t be exposed.

But Meadows argued that other agents for the FBI’s office of legal counsel, and are no longer in “counterintelligence,” as the FBI claimed.

“They don’t work in counterintelligence,” Meadows said in an exchange with Horowitz. “If that’s the reason the FBI is giving, they’re giving you false information, because they work for the general counsel.”

Clinesmith was caught texting anti-Trump emails while working on the Hillary and Trump investigations –

Clinesmith sent a number of pro-Clinton, anti-Trump political messages over the FBI’s computer system, which the report said “raised concerns about potential bias” that may have impacted the investigation.

On page 445 of the DOJ’s IG report on Hillary Clinton’s emails, there is a discussion of what Attorney 2 (Clinesmith) from the FBI texted on October 28, 2016 –

Among the general discussion of political issues by FBI Attorney 2, we identified three instant message exchanges that raised concerns of potential bias. The first of these exchanges was on October 28, 2016, shortly after Comey’s October 28 letter to Congress that effectively announced the reopening of the Midyear investigation. FBI Attorney 2 sent similar messages to four different FBI employees. The timestamps of these messages are included below. The messages stated:

13:44:42, to FBI Employee 1: “I mean, I never really liked the Republic anyway.”
13:44:52, to FBI Employee 2: “I mean, I never really liked the Republic anyway.”
14:01:52, to FBI Employee 3: “As I have initiated the destruction of the republic…. Would you be so kind as to have a coffee with me this afternoon?
15:28:50, to FBI Employee 4: “I’m clinging to small pockets of happiness in the dark time of the Republic’s destruction”

Notice that the IG’s report notes that this is the same time Comey initiated the second review of Hillary’s emails after finding them on pervert Anthony Weiner’s laptop. But what the IG does not say (perhaps because they did not know it at the time) is that this was right after the initial FISA application to spy on Carter Page and then candidate Trump was initiated!

According to Jeff Carlson at TheMarketsWork, we know what the actual dates of the FISA applications were from a February 28, 2018 Grassley letter to Inspector General Horowitz:

  • October 21, 2016 – Initial FISA Application

  • January 12, 2017 – First FISA Renewal. 84 days later – counting the end date.

  • April 7, 2017 – Second FISA Renewal. 85 days later – counting end date.

  • June 29, 2017 – Third FISA Renewal. 83 days later – counting end date.

It was a week after the first fraudulent FISA warrant was issued in an effort to legitimize spying on candidate Trump and the future 45th President of the United States, that creepy Clinesmith texted – “I never really liked the Republic anyways”!

This wasn’t the end of Clinesmith. He next was invited on the Mueller gang where he harassed young George Papadopoulos. According to Paul Sperry at Real Clear Politics

A junior member of the Trump foreign policy advisory team in 2016, George Papadopoulos was approached by FBI agents in Chicago, where he lived with his mother after the election while waiting for what he hoped would be an offer to join the new administration. The agents said they just wanted to talk to him about contacts he’d made with people in London during the campaign.

He spoke to them without a lawyer or the benefit of notes, emails or a calendar to refresh his recollection — a decision he would later regret. One of the interviews was run by FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who was later pulled off Mueller’s team after the inspector general exposed his anti-Trump text messages. Clinesmith zeroed in on Papadopoulos’ conversations with a supposedly Kremlin-tied diplomat in London, Joseph Mifsud.

The New York Times reported this weekend that the FISA document that was altered by Clinesmith was a renewal document. This may or may not be true based on the fact that the fake news New York Times reported it.

Whether Clinesmith altered the first FISA warrant or a subsequent renewal, the facts are clear, Clinesmith and his gang of creepy promiscuous fellow FBI gangsters knew from the start that their efforts to push through the Carter Page FISA application to spy on Donald Trump were fraudulent and criminal.

But then again – They never liked the Republic anyways!

BREAKING: FBI Lawyer Who Altered FISA Docs and His Lover Worked for Current ICIG Who Edited IC WhistleBlower Form to Legitimize the Schiff Sham

Barack Obama corrupted everything he could touch over his eight years as President. His military was prosecuting its own soldiers for murdering enemy combatants. Obama’s State Department was a pay-for-play racketeering enterprise and Obama’s FBI and DOJ morphed into sick and criminal gangs. What a mess!

Over the weekend we learned from another leak to the New York Times or Washington Post, that an individual in Obama’s FBI altered documents that provided support for a FISA Warrant obtained to spy on candidate and President Trump.

The individual (or individuals) was soon identified as Kevin Clinesmith who worked with his lover Sally Moyer for the current Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson –

Conservative Treehouse reported

If you have followed the case closely, the intentional removal of Peter Strzok in combination with the explanation of the lawyer’s FISA responsibilities; and in combination with prior reporting of FBI lawyer 2; it seems pretty obvious the line-level lawyer was Kevin Clinesmith.

If the WaPo article had added all the detail and left in how the line-level attorney worked for Peter Strzok everyone would have known who it was. Hence they put in more details about his activity but removed the Strzok reference.

Kevin Clinesmith was one of the key FBI small group members on the original Clinton investigation known as the “mid-year exam”, or in text messages the “MYE”.

Within the MYE Clinesmith was one of the key legal staff working with Peter Strzok. Clinesmith was lawyer #2 for Strzok who eventually transferred to the subsequent Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

Clinesmith was also previously reported to be having an intimate relationship with another member of the FBI team, Sally Moyer, though that is uncertain. [Tashina “Tash” Guahar was also a key legal figure on the Main Justice side of the MYE team.]

Sally Moyer was FBI unit chief in the Office of General Counsel (counterintelligence legal unit within the FBI Office of General Counsel).

Ms. Moyer was responsible for the legal compliance within the FBI counterintelligence operations that generated FISA applications.

When the MYE investigation finished, the Carter Page FISA construction is where Kevin Clinesmith and Sally Moyer come together in their next assignment, the FBI investigation of Trump.

The interesting connection is that Clinesmith and Moyer both also reportedly worked for Michael Atkinson while he was an attorney with the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Atkinson next took a position as the Inspector General (IG) of the Intelligence Community (IC). Recently, it was reported that Atkinson changed the IC whistleblower form in September shortly after a CIA Agent who was spying in the Trump White House drafted a complaint on President Trump.

Atkinson saw to it that the whistleblower form was updated to allow for second hand information, which the ‘whistleblower’ (believed to be Eric Ciaramella) provided in his complaint. Although, the form should not have been accepted based on second hand information and because it was about the President of the United States (who is not in the IC) Atkinson accepted the complaint.

The whistleblower later attempted to edit the form he originally provided. The original form stated that the whistleblower did not talk to Congress before filing the form but after it was discovered that he had met with Adam Schiff’s team in Congress, the whistleblower attempted to edit his form.

The fact that the whistleblower worked as a CIA operative also causes concerns since the CIA is only supposed to work overseas while addressing external threats not spying in the White House on the President.

This Obama group of criminals should all be in jail, not running around attempting their coup on the President of the United States.

The Democrats May be Corrupt and Dishonest but Here’s FOUR REASONS Their Impeachment Sham is INSANE and May Be the Undoing of the Democrat Party

The Democrat Party is coming undone. Their 2020 Presidential candidates are proud Socialists. Their former President Obama is connected to the biggest political scandal in US history. And so, the Democrats’ answer is to impeach President Trump. This is quickly becoming the greatest political blunder in US history.

For a very long time and for sure over the past three years, the Democrat Party is on a mission to destroy the Republican Party even if it means destroying America. But the one thing and the last thing that the Democrats have contemplated is destroying themselves.

Perhaps it comes from being slave owners in the South, succeeding, starting their own country, starting a Civil War, costing hundreds of thousands of American lives and somehow managing to stay intact that gives them the feeling that they can do anything. But this time it may be very different.

Here are four reasons the Democrats’ Schiff Sham impeachment may be the end of the Democrat Party –

1. The first reason is simple. The Democrats have no case. President Trump did nothing wrong. Their efforts to tie him to a crime didn’t work. President Trump in innocent and they know it.

Many Democrats wanted to impeach President Trump before he was inaugurated. They have been dreaming of this moment for years. They hate President Trump. He is brash. He fights back. He ultimately and often makes them look like fools and he always wins.

After the most corrupt investigation and special counsel sham was over, the Democrats had no crimes. They tried so hard. They falsified FISA documents. They spied on candidate and President Trump. They spied on and set up individuals near Trump (e.g. General Flynn, Manafort, Papadopoulos, Carter Page, Roger Stone, etc.). They had their ‘dream team’ on the Mueller Special Counsel and they even called themselves that. Anti-Trumpers, a Clinton Foundation attorney, the same group that released Hillary from any wrong doing, they were the perfect team to bring Trump down. But they couldn’t because he committed no crimes.

So next they pivoted from Russia to the Ukraine. They have tried to blame the President’s words on a phone call with the new Ukrainian President to wrongdoing. But when the President released the transcripts of not only one but two calls with the Ukrainian President, they had nothing.

They claimed the President’s efforts to determine corrupt activities in the last election are wrong and off limits. They claim that this was impacting the 2020 election while ignoring their actions that clearly are impacting the 2020 election.

After weeks of secret interviews, leaks and more leaks and lies from Chairman Schiff and other Democrats on the Committee, the Democrats believe they have a case. But in reality all they have is questionable witnesses basing their comments on second hand information.

The Democrats ignored Republican requests and prevented them from bringing in any witnesses. They interrupted their questions with the witnesses when they got too close to the truth. They won’t allow the whistleblower to be heard in spite of him starting the whole issue with a document with numerous falsehoods in it. But most alarming is the the Chairman of the Intel Committee, Adam Schiff, and his team worked with the whistleblower in the past, met with him before his complaint was filed, and met with the other witnesses before their testimonies were given.

Still nothing.

The President committed no crime. The Bidens happened to be involved in shady dealings in the Ukraine as well as former Secretary of State John Kerry. Billions in funds from the US and IMF went missing. VP Biden at the time had a prosecutor fired who was looking into his son’s company in the Ukraine. VP Biden bragged about it later which may be his undoing. Americans know there is corruption in the Ukraine. It is the Ukraine! The fact that Obama’s team was there is very suspicious. President Trump has every right and even a duty to look into it.

The President is innocent and Schifty Schiff made no case for impeachment. This in spite of the President and his team not being provided the right to cross examine the witnesses or call upon witnesses of his own.

Many Americans believe impeachment is for exceptional cases. Indeed the bar should be high. A President can only be impeached for treason, bribery, high crimes or misdemeanors. Second hand information of a call where the transcript is made public and shows no crime is not an impeachable offense.

The Democrats have no case and they know it. Why else would they keep changing the crime. It started as quid-pro-quo, moved to bribery, then perhaps treason and finally who knows what. These actions alone make a statement that they know they have nothing. They get an A for effort but their product gets an F.

2. The Democrats have no idea what will be uncovered or what will be presented in a Senate hearing and they have no control over the Republicans who are in charge of the Senate –

President Trump alluded to this on FOX and Friends in an interview Friday morning. He said he wants a hearing. He said he is innocent. They have no case and he would like the Senate to bring in Adam Schiff himself among others. The President would like to see the whistleblower testify. This guy met with and worked with Schiff. How well will that go for Democrats when he stumbles and is found in contempt while implicating himself and Schifty Schiff in a coup?

The Senate can bring in Hunter Biden, the son of the former VP. They could ask him about his drug addiction and his new child with a woman in Arkansas who isn’t his wife who had to get a test to prove he was the father. They could ask Hunter what he knows about oil, gas, the Ukraine and what warranted his appointment to the Board of Burisma.

They can bring in John Kerry and his former campaign fundraiser, Devon Archer, who also is on Burisma’s Board. They can bring in Christopher Steele who supposedly authored the Steele dossier with connections to the Ukraine. They could bring in Nellie Ohr and Bruce Ohr and Glenn Simpson. All who are connected to the Ukraine.

Any awkward or suspect comment could be the humiliating, embarrassing and devastating.

3. The IG’s FISA report is soon coming out –

No doubt that the Democrats have already seen this and built up their strategy to defend themselves but it will not be good for the Democrats and the Deep State. Americans already don’t trust DC and politicians. Soon the Democrats will be synonymous with the swamp in the mainstream.

President Trump says the report is shocking. He says that its the beginning of the parade of material on the greatest political scandal in US history. Former Reagan Attorney General Ed Meese believes that the FISA scandal is Obama’s Watergate

Former Attorney General Ed Meese, who served under President Ronald Reagan, compared spying on the Trump campaign to the Watergate scandal in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller.

Meese previewed the impending IG report on FISA abuse, which is expected to drop on Dec. 9. The report is expected to reach a conclusion as to whether intelligence agencies followed the correct processes when obtaining warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Meese debunked the idea that the IG report’s findings should be dismissed because the investigation occurred during the Trump administration, explaining that the IG’s investigations are independent.

Have the Democrats seriously considered how it is going to look when they are attempting to prosecute President Trump on a bogus, at best, ‘crime’ when the Obama appointed IG of the DOJ releases the FISA report showing much corruption and potential crimes related to the Obama gang before and after the 2016 election?

The Democrats would be better off laying low and suggesting its no big deal rather than trying to push a bogus impeachment at the same time the FISA report comes out.

4. US Attorney Durham has a criminal investigation ongoing now that will indict Democrats and their Deep State gang, if any indictments come forth, and they should.

John Durham is acting on behalf of AG Barr who wants to get to the bottom of the Russia collusion scandal. Why was candidate and President Trump spied on? Was it legit? If not, were crimes committed? If so, by whom?

We know that the Mueller team was a gang of Democrat attorneys and investigators, many of whom had just let Hillary Clinton off for no crimes in a crime riddled email investigation, and then the very same gang joined with Mueller to try and find crimes committed by candidate and President Trump.

This group targeted and indicted Trump associates who were spied on in the US and abroad. Many familiar with even a little about these events knows there were crimes committed.

The Democrats can’t control the Durham investigation as well. They don’t know what Durham is up to that we know of. Most Americans are in the dark. We do know that Durham has been overseas with AG Barr to Italy related to the investigation. We know President Trump asked the Ukrainian leader to work with AG Barr and ultimately Durham. The Australian leader has committed assistance and it is likely that the UK may also be assisting Durham.

The results from this could be damning. Many believe that if Durham does his job, he could uncover a coup. How will this look after the Democrats impeach an innocent man?

In Summary –

The Democrats may impeach Trump but they might not as well.

The risk if all goes poorly for the Democrats is very high. If the President is wrongfully impeached, and criminal actions by Schiff, the whistleblower, the Bidens, Kerry and Obama are uncovered in Senate hearings, and the FISA report is totally damaging and Durham starts arresting Democrats and the Deep State for their criminal acts, Americans will be outraged. This scenario could realistically be the end of the Democrat Party – something that some believe is long overdue.

Either way, President Trump will not be removed from office and will win the 2020 election.

 

 

Crazy Fed-Head Jerome Powell Finally Stopped Increasing the Fed Funds Rate Resulting in US Markets Continuing Historic Gains in the Trump Economy

What a mess the Fed is and especially their crazy leader Jerome Powell. This group of misfits came close to totally destroying the US economy one year ago. They finally began lowering rates after their unnecessary rate hikes and the result is the markets reaching all-time highs again.

Last year the Fed under crazy Jerome Powell came very, very close to totally destroying the best economy in US history. Powell proved that either he is the dumbest person on earth or he and the Fed were actively working hard to destroy and sabotage the best economy in US history.

America is in the middle of its greatest stock market rally ever but no one would know it due to the media. On Monday the DOW reached another all time high. This was the 116th all-time high since the 2016 election.

After President Trump was elected the stock markets exploded. The markets are a gauge of the economy and include expectations of the future. On November 8th, 2016, the DOW stood at 18,332. Since that date, and after Donald Trump won the 2016 election, the DOW has soared. The DOW closed at another new all-time high of 28,036 – more than 9,700 points higher than the day of the 2016 election yesterday!

Never has has the DOW risen so much in such a short period of time. THIS IS HISTORIC! Not only has the DOW skyrocketed since Donald Trump was elected President, the market’s rise is record breaking.

President Trump’s first year in office (2017) saw the most all-time stock market closing highs (71) as well as the largest single year increase in DOW history (4,956 points). Prior to 2017, no year in the DOW’s more than 100-year history ever saw the DOW increase by more than 3,500 points, let alone 4,900. The most all-time highs in a year prior to 2017 was 69 in 1995.

Since President Trump was elected President the DOW tied the record for the most all-time closing highs in a row. In January of 1987 President Reagan saw the DOW increase to new all-time highs a record 12 days in a row. In February of 2017, President Trump matched Reagan’s record.

The DOW reached its fastest 500 point increase between major milestones under President Trump. In January of 2018 the DOW surpassed 26,000 and six days later the DOW surpassed 26,500. Under President Trump the DOW has seen the fastest 1,000; 2,000; 3,000; 4,000; 5,000; 6,000; 7,000, 8,000 and 9,000 point increases in DOW history. No similar records occurred at any time in history.

Also, President Trump didn’t ride an Obama wave, the DOW under Obama was down in 2015 and stayed relatively flat until the 2016 election. The DOW is now officially up more than 50% since the 2016 election.

Presidents GW Bush and Obama NEVER reached a new all-time high in their entire first terms. Presidents (Franklin) Roosevelt, Truman and Carter never reached a new all-time high in their Presidencies.

President Trump has now increased the markets by more than any other President in their entire Presidency (when counting from their election win to the election day in their last year in office.) As noted above, under President Trump the DOW has increased more than 9,700 over the past three years. No President ever saw the DOW increase this much from the day they were elected to the day their predecessor won the election.

All the major indices are way up under President Trump and many records have been set. The market increases since President Trump’s election three years ago truly are historic.

But this historic economy was nearly totally destroyed by the meddling Fed and their leader Jerome Powell one year ago.

America was ready for real change after Obama’s eight years. His economy-killing actions related to massive regulations that killed jobs in the coal, oil and gas fields and other areas, needed to be lifted. President Trump promised he would do just that and in part, because of this, Trump won the election.

But after keeping the Fed Funds rate at 0% for 7 of Obama’s 8 years in office, the Fed was not about to let the incoming President have a better economy than their beloved leader Obama. The Fed increased the Fed Funds rate by a quarter of a percent in late 2015 for the only increase under Obama. But before President Trump could even raise his hand at his inaugural, the Fed increased the Fed Funds rate by another quarter percent for the only rate increase in all of 2016.

But the economy charged forward. American industry and all of America was excited. The incoming President Trump worked hard to encourage companies to do business in the US by meeting with their leaders in droves. The markets reacted and the greatest stock market rally in US history ensued.

President Trump next worked hard to implement major tax decreases and the Fed reacted in an almost possessed manner. As the markets rose, the Fed increased rates. Eight times over two years after the 2016 election the Fed increased the Fed Funds rate

Initially the rate increases were almost ignored by the markets but then they began to take a toll. As the Fed increased rates the markets began to stall and take time to regroup before again reaching new all time highs –

The markets reached a new all-time high the day after the 2016 election and never looked back through all of 2017. As noted above, in spite of the Fed Funds rate increase at the end of 2016 and three rate increases in 2017, the markets in 2017 enjoyed their best year ever!

In early 2018, the markets were on fire. The new tax law and the expectations this would positively have on the economy lit up the markets, so the Fed stepped up its market killing policy of increasing the Fed Funds rate. In 2018 the Fed increased the Fed Funds rate 4 times. The Fed’s last increase took place in spite of the markets going down 10% since their prior increase. The Fed acted insane or like a group of radical liberals attempting a coup on the government by killing the economy.

Jerome Powell and the Fed gave America one hell of a Christmas present at the end of 2018 with markets down 20% from their highs in October 2018. In addition to killing the markets, Powell and gang had single-handedly increased the US Debt by $1 trillion and mugged the GDP growth rate to year-lows. The higher rates also meant that the US dollar was much higher than US competitors. What a mess.

Thanks to Fed realizing that any more rate hikes and they would be at risk of a lynching, the Fed curtailed its rate hikes. However, by August of 2019 President Trump was so disgusted in Powell he asked who was worse for America, China’s President Xi or Jerome (Jay) Powell –

The markets increased significantly, but the Fed’s rate hikes took their toll. By looking at the increase in the DOW you can see how the Fed’s rate hikes began to negatively impact the markets –

The Fed finally began to decrease the Fed Funds rate in 2019 and by November, the markets were again reaching all time highs.

Jerome Powell and his gang at the Fed have done a terrible job working for Americans in an effort to build and strengthen the US economy. Their mandate is to do just that and they have failed. They failed so badly that there is more than enough evidence to show that they worked to sabotage the Trump economy rather than build and strengthen it.

After a few more rate reductions (three total in 2019) the US markets are again on the rise. Fed-Head Powell met with President Trump finally on Monday November 18th. The President tweeted –

The interest rates are still too high –

Powell was so frightened by this meeting with the President being misinterpreted by the corrupt media that he immediately issued a statement

The Fed statement asserted Powell’s comments were consistent with last week’s congressional testimony and did not concern ‘expectations for monetary policy,’ except to say it will depend entirely on new economic information.

‘Finally, Chair Powell said that he and his colleagues on the Federal Open Market Committee will set monetary policy, as required by law, to support maximum employment and stable prices and will make those decisions based solely on careful, objective and non-political analysis,’ the statement said.

Jerome Powell and the Fed are a joke. We know what they are supposed to be doing but who really knows what they are doing! If they were working for Americans they would reduce the Fed Funds rate some more, no matter what their corrupt media says!
