|BREAKING: See my post over at Grumpy Opinions entitled, “GOP Lawmakers: ‘Intel Comm. Must Release Classified Memo on DOJ, FBI #FISAabuse to Public“|
This week continues to get stranger by the hour but one thing is certain, Progressives have openly declared war on all of America; and if what I am relaying here is true, Congressional and Senate Committee members along with everyone else are fair game to be preyed upon by Marxists.
Would Twitter REALLY shut down the twitter account of the “House Permanent Select Committee On Intelligence”? The twitter handle is allegedly @HPSCI.
If @HPSCI is really the twitter handle of the “House Permanent Select Committee On Intelligence,” as of 3:03 a.m. this morning (Friday 1/19/2018) the account remains suspended begging one to ask, why is Twitter censuring/banning a Congressional agency?
Let’s just say for a moment that Twitter intentionally suspended the account…how low will Progressives sink? In light of the insanity, I took the following screenshot just moments ago.
Did Twitter just shut down the twitter account of the “House Permanent Select Committee On Intelligence”? They’re twitter handle is allegedly @HPSCI.
On Thursday afternoon, early evening reports began to surface across the social media site that Twitter suspended the twitter account of the “House Permanent Select Committee On Intelligence” [@HPSCI] (i) after calls by GOP lawmakers that a four-page classified memo revealing FISA abuses be made public and (ii) calls to #ReleasetheDocument #ReleasetheMemo #FISAabuse heated up as these hashtags began trending well into the night. (Although still trending, twitter as usual has removed the hashtags from the sidebar.)
As of 4:48 EST on Jan. 18, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence’s Twitter account — @HPSCI — is suspended. Why on the day that House members are now having access to classified document regarding FISA abuse?

Twitter has suspended the account for House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence AND the @HPsci does not even show up on searches when you type in the handle.

@JackPosobiec @PrisonPlanet @TuckerCarlson @SaraCarterDC @RepDevinNunes – it seems Twitter has decided that the United States Gov House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence needs to be suspended and censored-maybe have a talk to @jeffsessions about anti-trust laws? @POTUS https://t.co/XPtsXpsrYj

The memo allegedly exposes alleged government surveillance (FISA) abuses and collusion between members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the FBI, the DOJ and quite possibly the Clintons long-time pal, Sydney Blumenthal to undermine the campaign and presidency of President Donald J. Trump.
Apparently, it’s getting a little too hot for some folks and the timing of the alleged suspension of THE “House Permanent Select Committee On Intelligence” [@HPSCI], provided that is the their account is SUSPECT leading one to ask, who was it this time, Jack Dorsey or another disgruntled employee on his or her final day of work? Or is this a hoax intended to divert attention away from Republicans calling for the public release of the memo?
Moving on…for now.
Independent Sentinel by S. Noble
In his role as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he is asking questions and demanding answers about the seven memos written by Comey, four of which he shared with a professor friend who then shared them with the media.
The memos were marked confidential and one was marked secret. We have since found out that they were classified at the time they were shared.
Grassley has read all seven and did so in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, as they contained restricted information, The Washington Times reported.
In a strongly-worded letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Grassley asked if the matter was being reviewed and if so, what is the status?
“Has there been any review of whether the disclosure of the memoranda by Mr. Comey was otherwise improper, such as whether it violated his employment agreement or any Department rule or policy? If so, what is the status of the review? If not, why not?” the Iowa Republican asked in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein[…]
So long as FBI Director, James Comey, was doing Barack Obama’s bidding, Progressives were pleased. However, since Friday, Hillary Clinton, her campaign, Progressives bureaucrats and heir conglomerate of propagandists have stopped just short of demanding a bonfire with the FBI Director as fuel.
Never one to sit out a burning, Nevada’s dirt bag Senator Harry Reid, taking the low road as usual is accusing Comey of violating the Hatch Act.
“Your actions in recent months have demonstrated a disturbing double standard for the treatment of sensitive information, with what appears to be clear intent to aid one political party over another. I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act.”
Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News “Outnumbered” pointed out that Harry Reid got it wrong (who would have thought). The FBI director did not in violate the Hatch Act.
Harry Reid, in the same letter, in a play reminiscent of his 2012 smear against Mitt Romney has accused Comey of covering up a relationship between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
“in my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about the close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors and the Russian government – a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity. The public has a right to know this information.”
Below is Reid’s letter to Comey in its entirety.
Daniel J. Sobieski of American Thinker calling out Reid wrote:
Sorry, Harry — the Hatch Act was written to prevent government employees from campaigning on the government’s dime for a political candidate. It was not designed to prevent an FBI director from keeping Congress informed of any changes or new information in a federal investigation on which he has already testified before Congress.
While Comey can say he was keeping a pledge to Congress regarding a federal criminal investigation of a presidential candidate, Sen. Reid has no excuse for the lie he admitted telling in 2012 about Mitt Romney, an attempt to influence the presidential results…
Harry Reid is a liar, drunk on his own kool-aid and Hillary Clinton has no one to blame but herself.
Reid in his correspondence did not mention Russia, Uranium One or their four donations to the Clinton Foundation totaling $2.35 million, three of which were made between 2009 and 2013 when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.
At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.
Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.…
An inconvenient truth for the Clintons, Progressives and Harry Reid but since all of this is merely the Progressive’s latest three-ring circus one week before the presidential election, who cares (sarcasm).
Piling on we have, Clinton’s propaganda machine regurgitation of the lie that Comey may have violated the Hatch Act. “May have” because Harry Reid, a consummate liar says so. “May have” because propagandists have no interest in investigating the aspersions set forth because it may conflict with the intended endgame.
Enter the Bush Syndicate, apparently still bearing a grudge, very much pro-Clinton and dedicated to keeping Donald Trump out of the White House. Timing is everything and suspect.
Less than 24 hours after the news broke, Richard Painter, a former ethics attorney for the George Bush’s White House on Saturday filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) consequentially coinciding with his op-ed in the New York Times rag.
THE F.B.I. is currently investigating the hacking of Americans’ computers by foreign governments. Russia is a prime suspect.
Imagine a possible connection between a candidate for president in the United States and the Russian computer hacking. Imagine the candidate has business dealings in Russia, and has publicly encouraged the Russians to hack the email of his opponent. It would not be surprising for the F.B.I. to include this candidate and his campaign staff in its confidential investigation of Russian computer hacking.
But it would be highly improper, and an abuse of power, for the F.B.I. to conduct such an investigation in the public eye, particularly on the eve of the election. It would be an abuse of power for the director of the F.B.I., absent compelling circumstances, to notify members of Congress that the candidate was under investigation. It would be an abuse of power if F.B.I. agents went so far as to obtain a search warrant and raid the candidate’s office tower, hauling out boxes of documents and computers in front of television cameras.
The F.B.I.’s job is to investigate, not to influence the outcome of an election….
Such acts could also be prohibited under the Hatch Act, which bars the use of an official position to influence an election. That is why the F.B.I. presumably would keep those aspects of an investigation confidential until after the election. The usual penalty for a violation is termination of federal employment.
That is why, on Saturday, I filed a complaint against the F.B.I. with the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates Hatch Act violations, and with the Office of Government Ethics. I spent much of my career working on government and lawyers’ ethics, including as the chief White House ethics lawyer for George W. Bush. I never thought that the F.B.I. could be dragged into a political circus surrounding one of its investigations. Until this week….
Richard Painter , Harry Reid. Hillary and Bill Clinton, George, Jeb and George H. W. Bush? All batting for the same team. All coming out against Donald Trump.
Coincidence? I think not. Dog whistle for leave Hillary alone and go after Trump? Or was this whole move a desperately SCRIPTED attempt to distract from the Podesta emails, Project Veritas and finish off Donald Trump? Any investigations by the OSC will take months, as would investigations by the FBI.
Adding to the distraction: Comey has become fodder for late night talk shows, the Clinton camp and their propagandists, all of whom accuse Comey of double standards, Trumpism (another Marxist label/propaganda for linking Trump with Hitler, the alt-right, etc.) while giving Clinton a pass.
For more than a year, Comey has been a doormat for the Obama administration’s AG, Loretta Lynch who has controlled the message and not one Progressive in either party has objected until now. Most all, there has not been word from the Obama/Clinton propagandists again, until now.
Good cop, bad cop (no pun intended).
In the midst of it all, while 99% of those on the left are taking the low road and accusing Comey of attempting to swing the election, the White House in what appears to be nothing more than a game of good cop, bad cop said that it continues to stand behind the FBI director .
On Monday during the daily White House briefing, Obama’s press secretary, Josh Earnest, stated that Obama’s “assessment of his integrity and his character has not changed…” nor does Obama believe that Comey is pandering to benefit “one political party.”
‘I guess it’s fair to say that since we didn’t know about it in advance that we were surprised,’ he told a reporter, ‘particularly when you consider the kind of longstanding tradition that’s been observed by investigations and prosecutors in our democracy for a long time. ‘
What Earnest did not say what that with this latest ploy being politics at work, Comey will deliver as ordered by Barack Obama through his corrupt AG, Loretta Lynch after an alleged fall out over Comey’s letter to Congress.
And so for the next week, the Hillary camp, Barack and Michelle Obama, late night television and the propagandist machine will revisit every smear against Donald Trump, Paul Manafort, etc. because that is how the low down dirty dogs roll.
Finally, John Podesta’s pal, in the DOJ, Assistant AG, Peter J. Kadzik, is taking over the investigation into Huma Abedin’s emails so Abedin can return to the campaign stump now with her beloved Hillary.
As for James Comey, a bonfire awaits.
Hollywood elitist, one percenter Leonardo DiCaprio scheduled to host a Hillary Clinton fundraiser today at his home in Hollywood backed out at the last moment.
The talking points are that the scheduled plans surrounding DiCaprio’s movie production, ‘Before the Flood,’ another climate change movie has changed preventing the climate change Nazi’s return to Los Angeles until Wednesday.
No problem, fellow elitists Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are more than happy to do the honors.
Moving on. No one is buying the talking points especially since this past weekend, news surfaced about some shady dealings in which DiCaprio and/or his foundation may be linked.
The perfect image of Marxist elitist hypocrisy are one percenter climate change Nazis helicoptering in to an event in St. Tropez sponsored by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (“LDF”) “to dine on whole sea bass after watching a short film about the dangers of overfishing.”
Unfortunately for Hollywood’s numero uno, Leonardo DiCaprio, known for his Progressive hypocrisy, excesses and whose events are tapered with “booze, billionaires and babes,” key players connected to LDF and the Foundation itself has caught the attention of the United States Department of Justice.
The DOJ under the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative has filed a complaint alleging that LDF (for starters) through DiCaprio’s associations although DiCaprio is not the target has been linked and may have benefited from a scandal that reaches across the globe in which $3 billion plus was siphoned off from 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB), a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund
1Malaysia Development Bhd was set up in Malaysia in 2009 shortly before Dato’ Sri Haji Mohammad Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak became its Malaysia’s prime minister.
The stated purpose for 1MDB was to boost the economy through strategic investments and the fundamental transformation of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital into a major financial hub. Instead 1MDB which is $11 billion plus in debt became a slush fund for Prime Minister Najib Razak and his ruling coalition, the Barisan Nasional and National Front coalition.
Besides chairing 1MDB’s advisory board, Najib Razak is also Malaysia’s finance minister and the fundamental economic transformation of Kuala Lumpur is now nothing more than a pipedream.
As reported by Bloomberg News:
From the moment in 2009 when Najib took over a sovereign wealth fund set up by the Malaysian state of oil-rich Terengganu and turned it into a development fund owned by the federal government, 1MDB has been controversial. Since the beginning of this year—with coverage driven by the Sarawak Report, a blog, and The Edge, a local business weekly—the scandal has moved closer and closer to the heart of government, sparking calls for Najib’s ouster and recalling Malaysia’s long struggle with corruption and economic disappointment….
On July 3, the Wall Street Journal, citing documents from government probes, reported that investigators believe almost $700 million in cash moved through state agencies, banks, and companies linked to 1MDB before eventually finding its way into Najib’s personal accounts. The money reportedly included two transactions—one worth $620 million; another, $61 million—made in March 2013, two months before a general election returned Najib to power as part of the Barisan Nasional, or National Front, coalition….
1MDB, individuals and corporations linked to 1MDB in more than 10 countries (Malaysia, Singapore, Luxembourg, United Kingdom, Switzerland, United States, Thailand, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates and Australia) are under investigation for possible money laundering and financial irregularities.
Through its anti-corruption unit, the USDOJ who never met an asset forfeiture it didn’t like will begin seizing assets here in the USA from those individuals connected to the scandal and Malaysia’s prime minister.
As with most forfeiture cases, one need not be charged with a crime for the government on all levels to seize one’s assets.
Under the guise of doing it for the greater good, the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative was launched back in 2010 by Barack Obama and Eric Holder but not to take on corrupt corporations in the United States but corrupt leaders and their alliances who fleece their government’s coffers for their own nefarious gains. (Enter Barack Obama who is the ultimate kleptocrat.)
According to the forfeiture complaint filed in California, Razak’s stepson, Riza Aziz, close friends and associates diverted more than from an international oil deal, bond deals from Goldman Sachs (yeah, we know they had to be in here somewhere) and 1MBD along with “$1 billion of the embezzled funds into the United States using shell companies and the client bank accounts at the white-shoe law firm Shearman & Sterling….”
Back to DiCaprio’s LDF which is not known for its transparency, while not a non-profit entity was set up as a “donor-advised fund (DAF) attached to the California Community Foundation,” which happens to be a non-profit entity meaning that:
“LDF therefore is not required to file itemized public disclosures about its own revenue, expenditures and disbursements. ‘It’s difficult to characterize the giving of the DiCaprio Foundation because its status as part of the CCF makes it impossible to look at its finances,’ industry trade journal Inside Philanthropy noted in 2015….” Source: Hollywood Reporter.
Will assets donated to LDF in addition to whoever else amongst the Hollywood’s elites received gifts, donations, financial backing, etc. acquired through assets embezzled from 1Malaysia Development Bhd find themselves under the glaring lights of Barack Obama’s Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative?
Will the federal government use this moment as an opportunity to dig its appendages much deeper into Hollywood who has for the past eight years endlessly splattered Barack Obama’s propaganda across movie and television screens (but that’s another post)?
According to the complaint, Aziz, chairman of Red Granite Pictures who landed the rights to DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” financed the film from $238 million in funds embezzled from 1Malaysia Development Bhd[i].
The CEO for LDF claims that DiCaprio’s foundation has distributed more than $30 million this year in grants “through its relationship with the California Community Foundation, is supporting credible organizations that are carrying out some of the most important work on the planet” with one caveat, i.e., their anonymity and privacy “in their giving choices.”
We shall see how long the latter remains in play.
In the meantime, DiCaprio has good reason to ditch Clinton’s fundraiser. He wouldn’t want his fundraising problem to become intertwined with that of the Clinton’s, provided it is not already.
For months, we have been inundated with Communist protesters shouting “Justice for Mike Brown” “Justice for Eric Garner” and “Black Lives Matter.” However, beneath the surface of those shouts and as not reported by the mainstream media are growing calls to nationalize law enforcement in America.
The proposition that turning all law enforcement over to a national government would eliminate (or even drastically reduce) police misbehavior is not borne out by either history or logic. No one can seriously disagree with the fact that in nations with nationalized police forces, the liberties of the people are severely curtailed. Totalitarians dictatorships, such as Stalin’s Russia, or Hitler’s Germany, prove the point.
After Hitler came to power in Germany, he made every effort to reduce the power of state governments, including their historical and constitutional control over the general police power. Hermann Göring first suggested to Hitler that he give all law-enforcement authority to the Gestapo (the secret state police).
On June 17, 1936, Hitler unified all police forces under the leadership of Heinrich Himmler. The Gestapo operated without judicial review…
Useful idiots seeing no further than the chants on their cheat sheets distributed by the Socialist and Communist parties are blind to the atrocities and threat to the citizenry as a result of a nationalized police force in America.
These indoctrinated sock puppets are incapable of comprehending that while local law enforcement is not perfect, its far outweighs that which they are demanding.
On August 25, 2014, Marxist elites (celebrities, Progressive organizations, academia, so-called black leaders including the Congressional Black Caucus) invoking the death of Michael Brown delivered a letter to Barack Obama demanding that he appoint a special police czar to oversee the nationalization of the police state.
‘The Administration must appoint a federal Czar,’ the letter states, ‘housed in the U.S. Department of Justice, who is specifically tasked with promoting the professionalization of local law enforcement, monitoring egregious law enforcement activities, and adjudicating suspicious actions of local law enforcement agencies that receive federal funding.’
The letter is signed by Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), and her fellow members Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Steven Horsford (D-Nev.), John Lewis (D-Ga.), Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), and Barbara Lee (D-Calif.). Also signing on to the letter are the leaders of the ACLU, several labor unions (AFL-CIO and SEIU), Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, and several dozen others….
Communist elites endorse the jackboot of a nationalized police state to crush the necks of Americans and silence political dissent because in their feeble minds, such tyranny would not apply to them.
