  • In dossier probe, Fusion GPS asks court to stop House from seeing bank records

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 20, 2017 | by Byron York
    On the same day, Oct. 4, that the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed three employees of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS to testify in the Trump dossier investigation, the committee also subpoenaed TD Bank for Fusion's bank records. Now, according to a source familiar with the situation, Fusion has asked a U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., judge to prevent the bank from complying with the subpoena. Fusion has flatly refused to provide any information on its funding to either House or Senate investigators. The two officials refused to answer all questions from the House this week, and in an...

    I don’t believe in coincidences. Not when it comes to crimes. Especially when they involves political corruption. No such thing as a coincidence. Doesn’t exist. Yet, we are led to believe it was merely a coincidence that Bill Clinton just happened to be on the tarmac of an Arizona airport at the same time as then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch. We are supposed to accept that their private meeting on board Lynch’s plane had nothing whatsoever to do with the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton which the A-G was overseeing at the time. Right. They just “schmoozed” about grandkids and what-not....
  • Some drivers paid $8.38 to take MoPac Express Lane last week (TX)

    During the first full operational week of the northbound MoPac Express Lane, the most expensive transaction was $8.38 for the entire trip from downtown Austin to Parmer Lane. That peak cost happened on Thursday, Oct. 12. A spokesperson for the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority says while that number may seem high, only a handful of people paid that price for a 3-minute window between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. that day.

    (1) you successfully exploited the corruptness of the Clinton's and the Obama regime and corrupted a once excellent investigative agency, the FBI (2) you have enriched yourself, your friends and yes, the corrupted classes in the US government (3) you enjoyed Obama's "flexibility" in which he "colluded" with you against his country (4) so you invaded Crimea, destabilize Ukraine and flex your muscles because you have the goods on these people (5) who would you rather have in the White House, someone you can continue to blackmail or some total outsider? Tough choice. By the way, this choice is probably...

    The big story this week is that the FBI uncovered a Moscow bribery plot just before the Obama Administration approved the transfer of 20 per cent of American uranium into the hands of the Russians. And who precisely were the Russkies trying to bribe? They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton's charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill....

    As chaos and blood flowed on the streets of the Las Vegas strip, a SWAT team was sent by the FBI to the Tropicana Las Vegas Hotel and Casino to secure and confiscate their surveillance footage of the massacre VERO BEACH, FL (TruNews) While gunshots were still being fired on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, a seven man team, led by an FBI agent, tactically and expeditiously moved through the casino area of the Tropicana toward the hotel's primary security office.

    NOTE: Video at link As part of her ongoing “Thank God You Didn’t Elect Me” tour, Hillary Clinton made her debut on Australian television last night in an interview with the ABC’s Sarah Ferguson. Though she didn’t repeat her infamous “17 intelligence agencies” lie, which she’d continued to regurgitate long after that claim had been conclusively debunked, there were still plenty of whoppers to be heard. From her ridiculous claim that the aggressively protested DNC convention was “very positive” to her completely baseless assertion that Bernie Sanders “couldn’t explain his programs” during the primaries, Clinton did a fine job of...

    I just visited the NBC News, ABC News, CBS News, NY Times, Washington Post, and Fox News sites. On each site, only one -- Fox News -- mentions the uranium bribery scandal on their main page, and even then only in the context of Trump's tweet. I then did a context search using each site's search engine on the term "uranium". Not ONE SINGLE reference to the scandal came up on any of them. Drudge only mentions it in column 3 with a link to an article in The Hill. This is completely and totally disturbing. The level of complete...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions said during a Senate hearing Wednesday that the errors former FBI director James Comey made in the Hillary Clinton case are still not “fully understood.” Sessions justified the firing of Director Comey during his testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and asserted that the errors Comey made in the Clinton case were far more devastating than people realize. “Sen. [Dianne] Feinstein, I don’t think it’s been fully understood the significance of the error that Mr. Comey made on the Clinton matter,” Sessions said. “I don’t think I’ve heard of a situation in which a...

    Fifteen months before the 13 members of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, known as CFIUS, approved the sale of the Canadian company Uranium One to Russia’s nuclear arm giant Rosatom, the FBI began investigating persons who were connected to the Russian state corporation. The FBI said in court documents and in interviews conducted by Circa that by 2010 they had gathered enough evidence to prove that Rosatom-connected officials were engaged in a global bribery schedule that included kickbacks and money laundering. FBI officials said the investigation could have prevented the sale of Uranium One, which controlled...

    In a statement to THR, Katzenberg said, "That Molly Ringwald had to read those words attributed to me and believe I said them is horrifying, mortifying and embarrassing to me." In an essay for The New Yorker, Molly Ringwald reflected on her own experiences with sexual harassment in Hollywood, including an explicit comment once made by Jeffrey Katzenberg. "The head of a major studio — and, incidentally, someone who claims himself to be horrified by the Harvey allegations — was quoted as saying, 'I wouldn’t know [Molly Ringwald] if she sat on my face,'" she said of a Movieline article...

    It turns out the Obama administration knew the Russians were engaged in bribery, kickbacks and extortion in order to gain control of US atomic resources — yet still OK’d that 2010 deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of America’s uranium. This reeks. Peter Schweizer got onto part of the scandal in his 2015 book, “Clinton Cash”: the gifts of $145 million to the Clinton Foundation, and the $500,000 fee to Bill for a single speech, by individuals involved in a deal that required Hillary Clinton’s approval.

    As a result, just about everyone was left in the dark about the extent of the corruption and national security threat that the FBI had unearthed. The lack of fanfare left many key players in Washington with no inkling that a major Russian nuclear corruption scheme with serious national security implications had been uncovered. *** Ronald Hosko, who served as the assistant FBI director in charge of criminal cases when the investigation was underway, told The Hill he did not recall ever being briefed about Mikerin’s case by the counterintelligence side of the bureau despite the criminal charges that were...

    One News Now ^ | 10-17-17 | Robert Knight
    Falsely accusing opponents with hate is a devilish tool of the anti-Christian crew. Given its prominence in current public discourse, one would think that hate, not love, is a many-splendored thing. The perfectly good word, which oozes out of every media pore, is now so overused that it means next to nothing. Every time you turn around, someone is accused of "hate" merely for expressing disagreement. This is not just a matter of semantics. It's serious. When you cheapen a word, it discourages honest discussion and leads to more confusion and conflict, which is how the devil likes it. We...

    It has been reported that Samantha Power, while serving as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, requested or initiated a request for more than 260 unmaskings of Americans whose conversations were picked up during surveillance. But today, according to Rep. Trey Gowdy, Power denied making anything close to that number of unmasking requests. Here is what Gowdy told Fox News’ Bret Baier: BAIER: You are also looking, and have talked to the former Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power. We reported that she requested or her officer requested 260 plus efforts to unmask, in other words, get who was...

    Former presidential candidate and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean criticized the Trump Administration’s handling of post-hurricane relief efforts for the island of Puerto Rico. While the federal government has delivered massive amounts of supplies to the island it has not been uniformly successful in getting them distributed to those in need. Part of the hang-up has been local politicians laying claim to supplies. Another part has been unions seeking higher pay for transporting the supplies locally. Dean’s proposed solution: “let the Clinton Foundation take over from here. They have the know how and a demonstrated history of success. When...
  • Corruption, Corruption and More Corruption

    Corruption is closely associated with power, so much so that it is tempting to define it as the abuse of power. A week ago, Jimmie Moore pleaded guilty to filing a false campaign finance report in order to conceal a $90,000 payment he received to drop out of a Pennsylvania congressional race. In other parlance it is called a payoff, as the former Philadelphia judge surely knew. The nearly one-hundred-grand came from the incumbent being challenged: Congressman Bob Brady (D-Pa.). Brady has been serving (himself) in Congress for the last 19 years, representing a slam-dunk Democratic Party district. For even...

    Wesley and Joesley Batista, the brothers who formerly served as CEO and chairman of JBS, respectively, have been formally charged with insider trading and market manipulation. Both had admitted to involvement in a scandal in which they admitted to bribing Brazilian politicians. Both have also been incarcerated for about a month. Federal police three weeks ago formally accused the brothers of insider trading and asked federal prosecutors to file charges against them, which prosecutors did on October 10.
