The far left New York Times was quick to criticize President Trump and support Iran in a recent Op-Ed. The Times support for Obama policies of appeasing and giving money to Iran is plain wrong and down right suspect.
Heshmat Alavi describes the situation in Iran with an excellent Twitter thread over the weekend –
2) The @nytimes claims: "The latest set of sanctions on Tehran could make a bad situation worse."
As if Obama's 2015 Iran nuclear deal made the situation far better by providing $150 bn in credit & $1.7 bn in cash to Tehran, allowing the mullahs to wreak havoc across the region. pic.twitter.com/83Q6s8OHTj
Israel punched back at Hamas for sending 700 missiles into the country over the weekend. The leader of Hamas accused of funding the bombing is clearly dead per Israel video released.
The Israel Defense forces released a video of one of the leaders of Hamas that was responsible for transferring Iran money into Gaza to commit jihad against the Israelis. The Hamas leader was in his car when he became a casualty.
PRECISION STRIKE: Earlier today, we targeted Hamed Ahmed Khudari in Gaza. He was responsible for transferring Iranian money to Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The funds were used to build the hundreds of rockets recently fired at Israel. Iran will need to find a new money man in Gaza. pic.twitter.com/2mv1oXLaB7
The Mueller ‘Witch Hunt’ is over and the report is released. In the report Mueller listed a number of Russians that were indicted or related to individuals indicted as part of the investigation.
The problem is every single one of the Russians related to crimes as a result of the investigation is fake – EVERY SINGLE ONE!
It’s become clear to us and others that the Mueller investigation into whether candidate and President Trump and his team colluded with Russia is missing one thing – a genuine real Russian that committed any real crime –
The only thing missing from the Russian collusion hoax was a Russian. -Fin
As we review the Mueller probe we see that all connections to crimes by Russians in the entire investigation, are a sham – every single one. Here’s a list of Mueller’s fake Russia collusion connections.
The operatives working for the Russian intelligence directorate, the GRU, sent dozens of targeted spearphishing emails in just five days to the work and personal accounts of Clinton Campaign employees and volunteers, as a way to break into the campaign’s computer systems.
The GRU hackers also gained access to the email account of John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, of which its contents were later published.
Using credentials they stole along the way, the hackers broke into the networks of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee days later. By stealing the login details of a system administrator who had “unrestricted access” to the network, the hackers broke into 29 computers in the ensuing weeks, and more than 30 computers on the DNC.
The operatives, known collectively as “Fancy Bear,” comprised several units tasked with specific operations. Mueller formally blamed Unit 26165, a division of the GRU specializing in targeting government and political organizations, for taking on the “primary responsibility for hacking the DCCC and DNC, as well as email accounts of individuals affiliated with the Clinton Campaign,” said the Mueller report.
But we know that this is a myth because Mueller’s team never even reviewed the DNC server as noted in the ‘report’. It’s impossible to know how the DNC was hacked without obtaining and investigating the server –
In his extensive report, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller notes that his investigative team did not “obtain or examine” the servers of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in determining whether those servers were hacked by Russia.
This means that the following are all a sham. There is no evidence the following Russians had anything to do with hacking the DNC or Podesta emails.
The Justice Department on July 13 announced that 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted for allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 election.
All 12 are members of GRU, the Russian intelligence agency. The indictments, which stem from the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, were announced by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. We now know that this is a total sham. The Mueller team could not confirm they hacked the DNC since the DNC’s server was never obtained and reviewed.
Regardless, these 12 individuals will never be prosecuted.
7 Russian GRU Officers
In early October the DOJ on behalf of the Mueller team announced that they have charged an additional seven Russian GRU officers with crimes. The officers will likely never be tried in the United States and three of the men were already charged back in July in connection to the Mueller witch hunt. Again, they never hacked the DNC because the DNC server was never inspected by the Special Counsel.
The 13 Russians ‘Made Up’ by the Mueller Team
In an effort to tie their corrupt investigation to Russia, the Mueller team indicted 13 Russians after presenting their cases to a grand jury. Immediately, these indictments were suspect as everyone on to the corrupt Mueller team knew that these ‘Russians’ would never be brought to justice, even if they were real, because they would never come to the US to stand trial and risk being put in jail.
Unfortunately for Mueller however, this too turned into a royal mess. Lawyers defending one of three Russian companies indicted along with the 13 Russians, Concord Management, showed up for court. Mueller’s team was caught off guard and never expected this. They immediately asked the judge for more time but the judge denied their pleas noting that they were the ones who indicted the Russian company in the first place.
When the case proceeded, the Concord attorney’s noted that another of the three companies indicted by Mueller, Concord Catering, was not in existence at the time of Mueller’s indictment. They called this a case of Mueller indicting the proverbial ‘ham sandwich’.
At a following court appearance, the attorneys representing Concord stated that the corrupt Mueller team’s allegations of 13 Russian individuals impacting the 2016 election were “made up” nonsense. The individuals were not even real.
Concord Management’s lawyers revealed that Mueller’s team had ignored over 70 discovery requests they had made for information in the case. In response Mueller’s team offered to give Concord Management’s lawyers a massive amount of social media data from those dangerous trolls who sought to influence the US election and the majority of the data was in RUSSIAN.
Mueller’s lawyers then admitted that they didn’t even have English translations for the Russian social media posts. However, somehow Mueller’s lawyers believe Americans were influenced by these Russian language posts?
It was reported that Mueller’s team didn’t want to hand over the data that had been accumulated related to the Russians because the Russians would then use the information to spy on Americans (ignoring that they supposedly already had).
The case of the Russians quickly turned into a big joke. Mueller tried to tie the Facebook posts from the Russians to swaying the election. But in sharing that the Mueller investigation has been far more destructive to our country than Russia.
President Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner, who worked the Trump campaign, said that the Trump campaign spent $160,000 on Facebook ads every three hours during the election cycle –
There is no way Russian Facebook posts had any impact on the 2016 Presidential election.
One Lonely Russian Female Accountant –
In an October 2018 Indictment DAG Rod Rosenstein announced that the Mueller team was indicting a female accountant in Russia for creating more than 400 posts on Facebook that the DOJ says were inflammatory. Nobody saw the posts – they have never been released. God knows but they’re probably in Russian!
Last Friday Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Sean Hannity to discuss his letter to the State Department, FBI and CIA. Nunes caught dirty cop Robert Mueller in a complete lie. Mueller and his gang of angry Democrats reported in their report that Joseph Mifsud, who met with Papadopoulos and shared that the Russians had Hillary’s emails, was a Russian operative. However, it has been widely reported that Mifsud was a deep state operative who trains CIA and FBI agents in Italy. And Devin Nunes knows this.
Robert Mueller could be in serious trouble for withholding this information from the American Public.
The Deep State also attacked Papadopoulos with another individual who they said was Putin’s niece. Papadopoulos was sure she was not. Papadopoulos was also confronted by a woman who tried to seduce him.
There is no evidence that any individuals who approached Papadopoulos before the 2016 election, were Russians. He was set up by Deep State actors who said they were.
General Michael Flynn
General Flynn worked for the Obama Administration but at some point was fired by Obama for apparently disagreeing with his policies or actions. Soon after then candidate Trump ran for office and General Flynn supported the future President and introduced the candidate and then was offered a position on the Trump team.
Obama was upset with Flynn for supporting Trump and it appears that he had some sort of vendetta with Flynn. When President-elect Trump met with President Obama for the first time, Obama even recommended that the future President not select Flynn to be on the Trump administration team. It’s suspected that Obama didn’t want Flynn on Trump’s team because Obama feared Flynn would uncover the illegal spying that the Obama team carried out during the 2016 campaign and before.
It’s also suspected that after Flynn parted ways with President Obama he was set up at a dinner with Russians where he was seated next to Russian President Putin in December 2015. The American spy in England used often by the Deep State, Stefan Halper, seated Flynn next to Putin and then it is suspected used this information as an informant for the Obama administration to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on General Flynn.
A short time later General Flynn started participating in Trump rallies throughout the US and he also became an advisor for the campaign. At this same time the Obama administration was in full force beginning their efforts to frame candidate Trump as a compatriot with Russia to steal the election.
After Trump eventually won the election, the Deep State that Obama represented was in a panic. They feared that if Flynn looked into efforts to spy on the Trump campaign, they would be found guilty of their many illegal actions in spying on the President.
So the same FBI investigator who led the Hillary Clinton email investigation – The same individual who led the Hillary interview and neglected to take notes, put her under oath or record – The same individual who assisted in drafting the memo months before the Hillary was interviewed that was presented by corrupt FBI Director Comey to explain why the FBI was not pressing charges against Hillary – The same individual who lead the Russia – Trump investigation – The same individual who neglected to do anything when presented with information that China was hacking Hillary’s emails real-time – The same individual who personally reviewed over 300,000 Hillary emails found on perp Anthony Weiner’s computer a week before the 2016 election – The same individual that said all these emails were reviewed in less than a week and no criminally related information was found – This individual, Peter Strzok, went to the White House a couple days after President Trump’s inauguration and entrapped General Flynn, President Trump’s National Security Advisor, in discussions related to Russia.
The FBI agent that questioned General Flynn and determined he “lied” while the other FBI agents believed he was not being “misleading” failed his FBI polygraph.
After this discussion a few days later, then acting AG Sally Yates, went over the White House and stated that General Flynn had lied to the FBI. Eventually General Flynn resigned from his position at the White House on February 13, 2017.
Additional information on the framing of General Flynn was reported from a woman who said she was used as a Russian against the General –
Svetlana Lokhova, the Russian historian at the center of Michael Flynn investigation for ‘alledge contacts with Russians’, told Fox News in an exclusive interview with Catherine Herridge, that she is not a Russian spy and that she thought “there’s a high chance that is was coordinated, and believe it needs to be properly investigated.”
In 2017, American various media outlets framed her as a Russian operative and linked her to Michael Flynn. The allegations involved her contact with Flynn three years prior at a 2014 dinner at the University of Cambridge, England, when Flynn was Defense Intelligence Agency director.
General Flynn’s actions had nothing to do with collusion with Russia. He too was set up and spied on!
Paul Manafort was President Trump’s campaign manager for a short time during the 2016 election. The Mueller team initially charged him with multiple counts of not filling in forms required by the law starting in 2005. In an effort to pay his legal fees, Manafort borrowed money using personal collateral or real estate. Mueller and his team then charged Manafort with bank fraud claiming these loans overstated the value of his properties. This past week Mueller’s team then charged Manafort with trying to tamper with witnesses.
Manafort’s attorneys have argued that the entire case was unconstitutional based on the fact that no crime was committed by Trump which is required to set up a Special Counsel and based on the scope of the case being unlimited and therefore also against the law related to Special Counsels. However, the judge on one of Manafort’s cases was Obama appointed Judge Amy Jackson. With her record Manafort didn’t have a chance. She ended up placing him in solitary confinement for months for no good reason other than to torture the old man.
Mueller petitioned the court to have Manafort thrown in jail and corrupt Judge Jackson complied. The abuse that Mueller his Obama cronies perpetrated on Manafort will go down in history as some of the most inappropriate actions of an American citizen in history.
Manafort worked in the Ukraine with the Democrat Podesta brothers. Mueller gave Tony Podesta immunity but put Manafort in solitary confinement. All allegations related to Manafort had nothing to do with collusion with Russia.
When Manafort was eventually sentenced we found out that the Mueller team was trying to connect Manafort to a ‘Russian’ named Mr. Kilimnik who the Mueller team said was connected to Russian intelligence. However, Mueller’s attorney, the corrupt Andrew Weissmann, requested that all information related to Kilimnik be redacted.
We have the (mostly) unredacted transcript on the February 13 Manafort hearing.
Here's the tricks Weissmann is pulling:
(1) Allege Kilimnik is connected to Russian Intelligence
(2) Argue Manafort's counter-points about Kilimnik should be sealed.
Manafort’s work in the Ukraine was done with the Podestas and Ukrainian officials. He too was set up by the Deep State, Mueller and Weissmann.
Michael Caputo worked for the Trump team and he says he too was set up a by a fake Russian. He says that an individual named ‘Henry’ during the 2016 campaign contacted him claiming he had dirt on Hillary. However, this guy was a Deep State plant too and not a Russian.
In late May 2016 a Russian named “Henry” contacted me offering dirt on Hillary Clinton. Here’s a US federal court document that proves he was an FBI informant for 17 years. Somehow Mueller skipped right over this – wonder why? https://t.co/SpuCrXxOC7
Wherever were look in the Mueller investigation we find made up Russians and Russian related actions. There is no real evidence that the Russians had anything to do with the 2016 Trump campaign. The only thing we really know is that there were no Russians in the Russia gate hoax.
To date AG Barr gets and A for justice and an A+ for handling the crooked Deep State and Democrats.
For starters as soon as Barr was appointed on Valentine’s Day in 2019, he met with Mueller and no one knows all that was said but he stated yesterday that on that day he talked to Mueller about the final report. This is perhaps Barr’s first bold and big move. He shut down the corrupt Special Counsel investigation on the first day.
Barr told us yesterday that he met with Mueller (no Mueller’s not a man of integrity – his appointments to the Special Counsel absolutely prove it- Weissmann, Strzok, Page, Rhee, etc…). Mueller told Barr that he (Mueller) was unable to come to a conclusion on President Trump and obstruction. Barr said he didn’t understand Mueller’s thinking and he asked Mueller to clarify which Mueller was unable to do and had to get back to him on why he wasn’t declining to recommend obstruction charges on President Trump. Barr then requested that Mueller provide the report with all grand jury items notated. So boom – Barr shut down the most corrupt investigation in US history on what sounds like his first day!
The next big move that Barr made was to keep DAG Rod Rosenstein on until the Special Counsel was over. It’s unknown why Rosenstein agreed to do this. We know Rosenstein’s actions are corrupt. He approved the members of the Mueller team, in spite of their numerous conflicts, in direct obstruction with the law. Rosenstein hired Mueller who had obvious conflicts, the day after Mueller was turned down for FBI Director. And, we know now from Barr yesterday, that Rosenstein did not replace Mueller in spite of President Trump’s requests to put someone who wasn’t conflicted in that position. Despite all this, Barr keeps on Rosenstein so that he could have a co-signer on his four page announcement of Mueller’s conclusions.
Mueller next tried to put President Trump and his AG Barr a precarious position. He and Weissmann decided to provide Barr a report with no grand jury items notated in spite of Barr requesting that Mueller provide this information. No doubt creepy Mueller and Weissmann wanted to put Barr in a bind. They did this so that they and Democrats could complain about Barr taking too long to release the report and accuse Barr of editing the report. This is where Barr masterfully handled Mueller and his creepy and corrupt team’s political actions.
Barr in a matter of a couple days, took the Mueller report and drafted a separate report on March 24, 2019. He stated yesterday that he knew Americans were eager to read the Mueller report and he wanted to get the message out with conclusions of the report. Barr explained that this was not a summary and rather a report with Mueller report conclusions. Barr reported that Mueller found no evidence of collusion. He used quotes from the Mueller report.
Barr then did something that will go down in history as one of the boldest, most courageous and smartest moves of anyone in the past century to save the republic. Barr noted that he and Rod Rosenstein looked at the evidence presented by Mueller on obstruction and in three short paragraphs he explained that he and Rosenstein came to the conclusion that there is no legal reason to indict the President on obstruction –
The report’s second part addresses a number of actions by the President – most of which have been the subject of public reporting – that the Special Counsel investigated as potentially raising obstruction-of-justice concerns. After making a “thorough factual investigation” into these matters, the Special Counsel considered whether to evaluate the conduct under Department standards governing prosecution and declination decisions but ultimately determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment. The Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion – one way or the other – as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction. Instead, for each of the relevant actions investigated, the report sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the Special Counsel views as “difficult issues” of law and fact concerning whether the President’s actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction. The Special Counsel states that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
The Special Counsel’s decision to describe the facts of his obstruction investigation without reaching any legal conclusions leaves it to the Attorney General to determine whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime. Over the course of the investigation, the Special Counsel’s office engaged in discussions with certain Department officials regarding many of the legal and factual matters at issue in the Special Counsel’s obstruction investigation. After reviewing the Special Counsel’s final report on these issues; consulting with Department officials, including the Office of Legal Counsel; and applying the principles of federal prosecution that guide our charging decisions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and I have concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense. Our determination was made without regard to, and is not based on, the constitutional considerations that surround the indictment and criminal prosecution of a sitting president.2
In making this determination, we noted that the Special Counsel recognized that “the evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference,” and that, while not determinative, the absence of such evidence bears upon the President’s intent with respect to obstruction. Generally speaking, to obtain and sustain an obstruction conviction, the government would need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person, acting with corrupt intent, engaged in obstructive conduct with a sufficient nexus to a pending or contemplated proceeding. In cataloguing the President’s actions, many of which took place in public view, the report identifies no actions that, in our judgment, constitute obstructive conduct, had a nexus to a pending or contemplated proceeding, and were done with corrupt intent, each of which, under the Department’s principles of federal prosecution guiding charging decisions, would need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense.
Boom Mueller’s plan to provide Congress with a report where the corrupt Democrat- led House would decide Trump’s guilt on obstruction was gone – Barr killed it – and he had Deep State Rosenstein sign off on it as well! He rightly assessed that the President did not obstruct justice!
The next plan from the Deep State and the Mueller team to accomplish their coup was to include shady information about President Trump and other innocent individuals (suspected of being Trump family members like Donald Trump Jr.). They did this in providing Barr a 400 page report that should have been concluded in two pages. Mueller and Weissmann included numerous questionable actions by the President and others in the report. This was a horrible precedent that Mueller set and will go down as one of the most corrupt actions in US history. Barr handled this by redacting information on innocent individuals and he had Rosenstein and the Mueller team agree to the redactions.
In another act to prevent unnecessary damage to President Trump, and manage the message from the full Mueller report, Barr again was brilliant. He held a presser with Rod Rosenstein and explained what he was releasing and the report in general. Barr released the Mueller report after holding presser and stopped the Democrats’ attempts to run the narrative on the report.
A big point that Barr addressed yesterday was that President Trump never attempted to shut down the investigation as was inferred in the Mueller report. The report refers to many incidents like this that never should have been in the report. He explained explained yesterday that the President (rightfully) asked to have conflicted Mueller replaced. Rosenstein never did it and the President never removed Mueller. Another Deep State tactic ended.
Finally, Barr addressed the late night Mueller leak from yesterday where the far left New York Times and Washington Post both reported within minutes of each other that Mueller did not like Barr’s four page report. Barr stated that when he received Mueller’s letter, he called Mueller and Mueller said that he was not upset with Barr’s report but that he was upset with the media’s reaction to it. Barr then noted that before issuing his four page report, Barr asked Mueller if he would like to review it and Mueller declined. Final Boom.
Bill Barr to date could not be acting in a more just and shrewd manner in protecting the republic from the Deep State coup. It is long past time to bring these crooks and dirty copes to justice.
The regimes also relied on each other for uranium –
10) “Venezuela’s close ties with Iran and its significant untapped deposits of uranium–which might total as much as fifty thousand tons–raise questions about whether Caracas could pose a proliferation risk in the future.”
12) “Iran & Venezuela have already signed over 200 different memoranda of cooperation (ElUniversal). When it comes to uranium, cooperation might be a 2-way street, with Iran helping Venezuela (NYT) locate deposits & Venezuela helping Iran (FP) acquire some portion of them.”
14) “[U.S.] should also take note of Chavez’s language with respect to Iran. ‘We will always stand together,’ said Chavez before departing Tehran for Damascus. ‘We will not only resist, we will also stand victorious beside one another.’"
“Israel used its humanitarian aid mission to Nepal as a cover for trafficking 25 Nepalese babies, two Spanish-language networks reported. Iranian HispanTV & Venezuela’s Telesur networks broadcast the reports.” https://t.co/JhTNJ1dmkZ
22) “A former government minister in Venezuela who has been accused of anti-Semitism and ties to Iran and the terrorist group Hezbollah was tapped as the South American country’s vice president.”https://t.co/LEaTTU4syA
24) El Aissami is “presented as a Druze,” he is “closely identified with Shiite Iran, the Hezbollah terrorist organization and Syrian President Bashar Assad’s family, whom he apparently hosted in Caracas.”
No doubt the people of both regimes feel betrayed by Obama –
31) And talking about links & ties, we all remember how Obama had good relations with Chavez. In my opinion, as Obama betrayed the people of #Iran in 2009, one could say he betrayed the people of Venezuela, too. pic.twitter.com/n73NwUkqA9
The violent and criminal regimes in Iran and Venezuela are attacking their people. The people of both countries are standing up against the regimes.
In Venezuela the people are tired of the socialist Maduro regime and want a change. They protested yesterday and the brutal regime retaliated and reportedly stayed outside La Carlota air base in Caracas, Venezuela overnight –
The Iranian and Venezuelan regimes are falling apart thanks to President Trump opposing and destroying former President Obama’s policies of appeasing regime leaders around the globe.
Far left Politico released a one-off report in 2017 that uncovered actions by the Obama administration to appease the Iranian and Venezuelan regimes –
In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.
The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.
Over the next eight years, agents working out of a top-secret DEA facility in Chantilly, Virginia, used wiretaps, undercover operations and informants to map Hezbollah’s illicit networks, with the help of 30 U.S. and foreign security agencies.
They followed cocaine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East, and others through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States. They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.
They followed cocaine shipments, tracked a river of dirty cash, and traced what they believed to be the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.
But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records. When Project Cassandra leaders sought approval for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, officials at the Justice and Treasury departments delayed, hindered or rejected their requests.
The Justice Department declined requests by Project Cassandra and other authorities to file criminal charges against major players such as Hezbollah’s high-profile envoy to Iran, a Lebanese bank that allegedly laundered billions in alleged drug profits, and a central player in a U.S.-based cell of the Iranian paramilitary Quds force. And the State Department rejected requests to lure high-value targets to countries where they could be arrested.
Politico released the below map that showed the scheme between Iran and Venezuela to push drugs and human trafficking throughout the world.
Obama so desperately wanted the Iran deal that he shut down this criminal scheme between the Iranian regime, its terrorist organization Hezbollah and the Venezuelan regime led by crook Maduro.
Obama did all he could to support terrorists, criminal regimes and despots but today President Trump is doing all he can to destroy these evil entities.
Tonight the Maduro regime in Venezuela is being asked to leave by its own people. It’s killing its own people and pushing socialist ideas while its people are eating from garbage cans to stay alive –
Today Iran’s economy is imploding no thanks to President Obama. Obama by ignoring Project Cassandra allowed millions to go to terrorists while allowing tons of cocaine to be smuggled into the US –
What I remember about President Obama:
– Turning his back on #Iran's 2009 uprising – Allowing Assad gas innocent civilians in #Syria – Selling off America's Middle East allies – Bending over backwards to reach a highly flawed #IranDeal with Tehran's mullahs
Iran’s economy is on the brink thanks to the Trump administration’s sanctions, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Iran is in a deep recession, with inflation at roughly 40 percent, the organization said, marking the highest such level since 1980.
The crisis is intensifying a chasm between President Hassan Rouhani’s allies and those who oppose diplomatic exchanges with the U.S. government, the Financial Times noted.
And Iran’s problems are expected only to worsen once President Trump’s promised sanctions on the leading buyers of the Islamic Republic’s oil take effect. They include Japan, South Korea, Turkey, India and China.
Its refreshing to have a President today that stands for justice instead of tyranny, drug running and human trafficking like the former failed President.
The Fed and its Head – Jerome Powell – have mandates to”promote stable prices” and “maximum employment” and to ensure a “healthy economy”.
However, the Fed’s recent radical and consistent rate hikes are stalling the great Trump economy while working against their mandates.
The Federal Reserve states on their website that two of its functions are to conduct monetary policy and promote financial system stability.
But the Fed is currently not sticking to its mandates – Just look at the Fed’s rate increases this century and since President Trump won the 2016 election. The Fed lowered interest rates to 0% for the Obama Administration and kept these rates at 0% for the first 7 years of Obama’s time in office. Finally, the Fed increased the interest rates 0.25% in late 2015 for the only increase during Obama’s Presidency up to the 2016 election.
After President Trump won the November 2016 election, the Fed began a steady program of increasing interest rates. This program continues to this day and in total the Fed has increased rates 8 times since Trump won the Presidency. The rates now stand at 2.25% and as a result of these horrible and political policies, the Trump economy and Americans’ 401(k)’s are being devastated.
Unfortunately, if you cut engine power too far on a jetliner, it will stall and drop out of the sky.
On Wednesday, December 19, 2018, despite the numerous market-based alarms that were sounding in the cockpit, Chairman Powell and his co-pilots on the FOMC voted to raise the Fed Funds rate to 2.50%. This sucks more dollars out of the economy at a time when the world demanding more dollars – thanks to Trump’s Tax cutting and deregulation policies.
Chairman Powell has been entirely tone deaf to the financial markets he seeks to protect. The Dow Jones Industrial average, which had risen by 382 points on hopes that the Fed would listen to President Trump and stop cutting power, plunged by 895 points after the 2:00 PM announcement, and closed the day down 352 points (1.49%). Poof, trillions of dollars of wealth vanished.
Since its peak on October 3, which, not coincidentally, was right after Chairman Powell gave a speech suggesting that the Fed might be through tightening money, the Dow has fallen by more than 3,500 points [now 4,500]. Market fears about his bad judgment have cut the value of all U.S. stocks by about $4.5 trillion, which is enough to buy 16,000 Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
The Fed economists use twisted logic that the economy is “strong enough” to absorb the rate hikes – which is simply an admission that their policy will slow growth.
The markets were up nearly 50% since the President won the 2016 election. Then in early October, the Fed Chief announced more interest rate hikes. After that the markets collapsed. The markets were down about 20% by the end of 2018 and the Fed nearly put the US into a recession.
President Trump today again challenged the Fed. While China is doing all it can to protect its economy, the Fed is doing the opposite in the US –
China is adding great stimulus to its economy while at the same time keeping interest rates low. Our Federal Reserve has incessantly lifted interest rates, even though inflation is very low, and instituted a very big dose of quantitative tightening. We have the potential to go…
The Fed’s raising of interest rates are hurting average Americans’ 401k’s while increasing the US debt –
….up like a rocket if we did some lowering of rates, like one point, and some quantitative easing. Yes, we are doing very well at 3.2% GDP, but with our wonderfully low inflation, we could be setting major records &, at the same time, make our National Debt start to look small!
In March 2017 we reported a list of more than a dozen proven victims of Obama’s illegal wiretaps. Now we can add to that list the many times when candidate and President Trump and his team were spied on.
In March 2017 President Trump tweeted the following –
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!
In response to his tweets the Mainstream Media (MSM) went crazy and called President Trump crazy and a liar. So we listed the many times that Obama reportedly spied on others outside of the Trump campaign presented below –
(WikiLeaks released the following list on February 23rd (see link here) of Obama Administration wire taps.)* The US National Security Agency bugged a private climate change strategy meeting; between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin;
* Obama bugged Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone;
* Obama singled out the Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception;
* Obama stole sensitive Italian diplomatic cables detailing how Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implored Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to help patch up his relationship with US President Barack Obama, who was refusing to talk to Netanyahu;
* Obama intercepted top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);
* Obama explicitly targeted five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers;
* Obama explicitly targetted the phones of Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception; and
* Obama intercepted details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”.In addition to the above list we also noted that Obama wire tapped various individuals in the US media that were reporting information not flattering to the Obama Administration. It is widely known that Obama’s Justice Department targeted journalists with wiretaps in 2013:* In 2013 the liberal Washington Post expressed outrage after the revelation that the Justice Department had investigated the news gathering activities of a Fox News reporter as a potential crime in a probe of classified leaks. The reporter, Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked.
* Also in 2013, members of the Associated Press were a target of surveillance. The ultra liberal New Yorker even noted that “In moderate and liberal circles, at least, the phone-records scandal, partly because it involves the dear old A.P. and partly because it raises anew the specter of Big Brother, may well present the most serious threat to Obama’s reputation.”
* Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post.
Finally, we reported that WikiLeaks tweeted that the Obama Administration spied on their journalists as well:
Now we know that Obama spied on the Trump campaign, Presidency and his team as well.
After President Trump’s tweets in March 2017 noted above, shortly after the inauguration, we learned a lot. It was reported that –
On Thursday November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Mike Rogers traveled to New York and met with President-Elect Donald Trump.
It is suspected that Rogers went to Trump Tower unannounced to share with him that he was being spied on. President-elect Trump moved his transition team from Trump Tower to one of his golf courses the very next day after Admiral Rogers’ visit –
President-elect Donald Trump is moving the transition meetings Friday from Trump Tower in New York to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, said transition team officials.
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., whose congressional committee is investigating whether Russia interfered with the U.S. 2016 election, said he had been given access to intelligence reports that confirm Trump’s associates were spied on by American intelligence – operating under the auspices of President Obama.
We know that Trump volunteer George Papadopoulos was spied on my multiple characters from US and foreign entities (none Russian) in Europe in early 2016, long before the FBI said they started their Trump-Russia sham investigation in July 2016. Papadopoulos was set up in his interactions with the Deep State spies in Europe and by Italian, Australian and UK related spies and spy entities all working with the Obama Administration.
We also know that General Mike Flynn, Carter Page, Sam Clovis and other Trump team members were spied on by Stefan Halper, one of the same spies who interacted with Papadopoulos. They were spied on by others and by numerous means as well.
We also know that former and now fired FBI Director James Comey met with President-elect and then President Trump and took notes for the sole purpose of spying on Trump. He then leaked his reports to the MSM. President Trump responded with the following –
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!
The MSM again went into overdrive speculating that President Trump had tapes like Nixon did during Watergate. As it turned out the President had no tapes. (What the MSM never asked is whether Comey wire tapped the meetings with Trump and if so, whether Trump knew it when he fired off the above tweet! Time will tell.)
Now this past week we find out that Obama and his Deep State cronies appear to have spied on the President in the White House. The wife of former Chief of Staff to Mike Pence Joshua Pitcock was working for dirty cop Peter Strzok and investigating into Hillary Clinton’s crimes. This comes after it was reported that lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were “cultivating sources” to spy and inform them on President Trump.
BREAKING: White House aides are concerned fmr Pence Chief of Staff Joshua Pitcock may have left behind FBI listening devices after learning his wife worked for Peter Strzok
The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite rallied on Tuesday to notch record closing highs as Wall Street cheered stronger-than-expected quarterly profits from some of the largest publicly traded U.S. companies.
The broad index closed 0.9% higher at 2,933.68, topping its previous record close of 2,930.75. The S&P 500 also ended the day just below its intraday record of 2,940.91. The Nasdaq closed up 1.3% at 8,120.82. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, meanwhile, gained 145.34 points to close at 26,656.39 and was 1.1% from an all-time high.
Tuesday’s move toward an all-time closing high comes less than six months after a sharp decline in late December, which led the S&P 500 to its worst annual performance since 2008. But stocks quickly turned around as the Federal Reserve reversed course on monetary policy while the tone around U.S.-China trade talks improved.
Since the 2016 Election, the DOW is up more than 45%!
On election day 2016 (November 8th) the DOW closed at 18,332. Yesterday the DOW closed at 26,656 – up more than 45% since the 2016 election. The DOW is up 8,324 points since the 2016 election!
Unemployment is at 50 year lows, wages are going up, corporate earnings are at all-time highs and expected to get higher and the markets are at all-time highs. Trump’s economy is roaring!
