FBI Delayed Sexual Abuse Investigation for Eight Months — Survivors Sue

Sat, 2022-04-23 10:34 +0000

Just the News:  Larry Nassar survivors sue FBI for $130 million

Thirteen women sexually assaulted by former USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar are suing the Federal Bureau of Investigation for $10 million after the agency covered up the scandal in 2015. 

Although the FBI was alerted to Nassar's perpetration of sexual abuse in 2015, the agency didn’t investigate for eight months. During this period, Nassar assaulted more women and minor children under the pretense of medical care.

A 119-page Department of Justice (DOJ) report from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), a waste watchdog, identified multiple agency mistakes.

For example, the report found the Indianapolis Field Office didn’t document the 2015 victim interview about Nassar's criminal sexual assaults until 17 months later. Moreover, the FBI report included “materially false information and omitted material information.”

The DOJ found that one FBI agent, “in an effort to minimize or excuse his errors, made false statements during two OIG-compelled interviews regarding his interview of one of Nassar’s victims.” Another agent lied to cover mistakes.

Durham Is Digging Far and Wide

Sat, 2022-04-23 09:38 +0000

Margot Cleveland:  Docs: Spygate Researchers Did Work For Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller

The U.S. Department of Defense and private individuals pumping the Alfa Bank hoax also assisted former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Donald Trump for supposed collusion with Russia, newly discovered documents suggest.

The Georgia Tech researchers embroiled in the Alfa Bank hoax prepared white papers for the U.S. Department of Defense about the Democratic National Committee hack and created a “Mueller List” on the Russian intelligence agency hackers, the newly obtained documents indicate. The white papers were prepared for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a section of the U.S. Department of Defense.

A recent dump of documents from Georgia Tech reveals that explosive detail and several other facts connected to the continuing special counsel investigation into Spygate. Here’s a rundown.

The Ruling Class Against the Rest of Us

Fri, 2022-04-22 12:41 +0000

Mark Wauck, Meaning in History:  The Real War: The World Banking Cabal Front

This front is pretty much ground zero for the Ruling Class war against, well, the rest of us.

Recently I linked to an article by Barbara Boyd, who writes for the LarouchePAC. I should probably explain up front that I don’t belong to that or any related organization, and have declined offers to become associated. In any event, linking to Boyd’s article—which I thought made excellent sense within my own perspective—led to being sent Boyd’s latest article:

Yoda’s Evil Deluded Twin, Janet Yellen, Declares World Bankers’ Dictatorship

While some readers may be familiar with the developments that Boyd describes, I believe the article presents these events in a particularly readable way. In the past I’ve covered some of what Boyd describes in the context of the buildup to and the power centers behind the implementation of the Covid Regime—especially the gaming for pandemic controls. Boyd’s article focuses more on what could be described generally as the movement for a Green world economy. That movement itself, however—much like the Covid Hoax, the WEF’s Great Reset/Davos, the Russia Hoax, and the current US/NATO war against Russia—is more in the nature of a means to an end. As far as a move by the World Bankers to take over governance of the world, I’ve covered that in the context of the Covid Regime through the presentations of people like Richard Werner, Catherine Austin Fitts, Tom Luongo, and others. Again, I believe Boyd does an excellent job of organizing an overview of the aims of the people behind these related movements toward a world government directed by the banks. I say all this to justify inserting the greater part of Boyd’s article below—with additional comments and links (largely missing from the article).

A Flurry of Legal Filings by Clinton Campaign Associates

Thu, 2022-04-21 18:36 +0000

Jeff Carlson & Hans Mahnke, Epoch Times:  Breaking Down the Flurry of Legal Filings by Clinton Campaign Associates in Durham’s Prosecution of Michael Sussmann

The overarching problem with all these claims of privilege is that by legal necessity they have to be based on legal advice. If the task at hand wasn’t about legal advice—such as Fusion pushing false stories about Trump to the media—then there is no attorney-client privilege.

With that backdrop in mind, Fusion GPS claimed in its filing that it was retained by then-partner Elias at Perkins Coie to “assist in providing legal advice to its clients, the Hillary for America Campaign Committee and the DNC during the 2016 presidential campaign. As we noted earlier, Elias’s own submission mirrored this claim.

But there’s a huge problem when we compare these new claims with an Oct 24, 2017 letter from Perkins Coie, which officially detailed its retention and hiring of Fusion on April 11, 2016.

Matthew Gerringer, general counsel for Perkins Coie, noted that Fusion approached Perkins Coie in early March 2016. Gerringer stated that Fusion expressed an interest in its continuation of “research regarding then-Presidential candidate Donald Trump,” research that “Fusion GPS had conducted for one or more other clients during the Republican primary contest.”

And it wasn’t just Perkins Coie that was saying this. In their 2019 book, Fusion’s owners told a very similar story, specifically that they had pitched the idea to Elias that they would continue to collect opposition research on Trump on Elias’s behalf. There was never any mention from either Fusion or Elias of legal services or legal advice.

26 States Including New Hampshire Create Border Strike Force

Thu, 2022-04-21 17:12 +0000

Epoch Times:  26 Governors Create Border Strike Force ‘In the Absence of Federal Leadership’

Twenty-six U.S. governors, all Republican, announced the creation of a Border Strike Force to “disrupt and dismantle transnational criminal organizations” on April 19.

The group of governors signed a memorandum of understanding, pledging to work together to “serve as a force multiplier to target cartels and criminal networks financially and operationally.”

“Together, governors will improve public safety, protect victims from horrific crimes, reduce the amount of drugs in our communities, and alleviate the humanitarian crisis at the Southern Border,” the agreement states.

The group includes two border states—Arizona and Texas—as well as 24 others: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Lying and Spying — The Yotaphone Hoax

Wed, 2022-04-20 16:21 +0000

Margot Cleveland:  New Documents Suggest Democrats Sicced The CIA On Their Domestic Enemy, The President

Newly released CIA memoranda suggest the tech gurus behind the Alfa Bank hoax also tracked Donald Trump’s movements to devise another collusion conspiracy theory. While smaller in scale than other aspects of Spygate, the Yotaphone hoax represents an equally serious scandal because it involved both the mining of proprietary information and sensitive data from the Executive Office of the President (EOP) and the apparent surveillance of Trump’s physical movements.

[...]

Foremost, of course, was Sussmann’s claim “that he was not representing a particular client,” even though the previous month he had told the former CIA agent his client “cares about the security of the country.” Also, according to Durham, Sussmann continued to represent Joffe during this meeting.

Relatedly, Sussmann told the CIA that his “contacts” “preferred anonymity, citing a potential threat from the Russian Intelligence Services.” But as other court filings established, Joffe had previously shared information with intelligence agencies directly, making a claim he sought anonymity for safety reasons suspect.

Also false, according to the special counsel, was Sussmann’s claim during his February 9, 2017 meeting with the CIA that “one of his contacts,” who was a “clearance holder,” had collected the data from his “private collection.” While that may have been true about the data collected for the Trump Tower, Trump’s Central Park West apartment building, and Spectrum Health, the data related to the EOP was accessed and maintained by Joffe’s employer “as part of a sensitive arrangement whereby it provided DNS resolution services to the EOP.”

Joffe’s exploitation of the government’s EOP data to take down the president of the United States presents another huge scandal.

Most Popular President Ever

Wed, 2022-04-20 14:11 +0000

April 19, 2022 — President Joe Biden speaks to adoring throngs in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  Biden is the most popular U.S. president ever, having received a record 81 million-plus votes in the 2020 election.  His election was aided by a covid pandemic which became the pretext for changing voting laws in many states, thus expanding mail-in voting, selective ballot curing, and illegal ballot harvesting.  Barack Obama set the previous record for a winning presidential campaign in 2008 when he received 69 million-plus votes.

Why Clinton Will Lose the "Privilege" Fight

Wed, 2022-04-20 09:41 +0000

Techno Fog:  Clinton Campaign: Fusion GPS provided legal advice

Back in August 2017, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee, explaining how his firm was retained to gather “lots of facts about Donald Trump.” He admitted that Fusion GPS met with reporters leading up to the 2016 election to spread opposition research against then-candidate Trump.

The context of Perkins Coie’s retention of Fusion GPS was further explained in a book co-authored by Simpson and Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch. They documented an April 20, 2016 meeting with Mark Elias (Perkins Coie partner and counsel for the DNC/Clinton Campaign), where Elias requested their services for opposition research:

Now the stories have changed.

Fusion GPS is no longer an opposition research firm, and they weren’t hired to dig-up dirt against Trump. Instead, they would have you believe, after the phony dossier and the Alfa Bank hoax, that Fusion GPS was retained to provide legal advice to the Hillary Clinton Campaign. Remarkable.

Jacques Baud, a NATO expert, denounces western coverage of the Ukraine invasion.

Tue, 2022-04-19 16:02 +0000

Jacques Baud:  Former NATO Military Analyst Blows the Whistle on West’s Ukraine Invasion Narrative

The problem is not so much who is right in this conflict, but how our leaders make their decisions.

Let’s try to examine the roots of the conflict. It starts with those who for the past eight years have been talking to us about “separatists” or “independence” from the Donbass. It’s wrong. The referendums conducted by the two self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in May 2014 were not ”  independence ” (независимость) referendums , as some unscrupulous journalists  claimed , but ”  self-determination  ” or ”  autonomy (самостоятельность). The term “pro-Russian” suggests that Russia was a party to the conflict, which was not the case, and the term “Russian speakers” would have been more honest. Moreover, these referendums were conducted against the advice of Vladimir Putin.

In fact, these republics did not seek to separate from Ukraine, but to have a statute of autonomy guaranteeing them the use of the Russian language as an official language. Because the first legislative act of the new government resulting from the overthrow of President Yanukovych, was the abolition, on February 23, 2014, of the Kivalov-Kolesnichenko law of 2012 which made Russian an official language. A bit as if putschists decided that French and Italian would no longer be official languages ​​in Switzerland.

This decision causes a storm in the Russian-speaking population. This resulted in fierce repression against the Russian-speaking regions (Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Lugansk and Donetsk) which began in February 2014 and led to a militarization of the situation and a few massacres (in Odessa and Mariupol, for the most important). At the end of summer 2014, only the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk remained.

Our Stolen Election — They Didn't Steal It, They Bought It

Tue, 2022-04-19 11:10 +0000

The Washington Times: Groups with strong liberal ties funneled massive 2020 election grants to Democrat-rich districts (Subscriber only) 

Private donors led by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg pumped more than $400 million into administering the 2020 presidential election, money that was often funneled by Democratic operatives into Democratic districts in what became essentially a get-out-the-vote effort for Joseph R. Biden.

The total amount of private donations for carrying out the 2020 election exceeded the federal government’s entire allocation for election spending that year.

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission was responsible for administering the $400 million in “election security grants” that Congress approved in 2020 to help local officials administer the election during a pandemic.

The private funds were distributed on an unprecedented scale to voting districts across the country by nonprofit groups staffed by former Democratic operatives who sought the help of left-leaning government officials.

These groups funneled much of the money to cities and counties rich in Democratic voters for purposes that appear less centered on voter safety and more focused on increasing turnout among certain groups.

[...]

Tom Bonier, an analyst with the Democratic market research firm TargetSmart in Washington, told The Guardian in December 2020 that the increase in mail-in ballots in the presidential election was “crucially and critically important to Biden’s win.” He concluded, “There’s absolutely no way we would have hit these record levels of voter turnout, nationally, without this massive adoption of mail voting.”

Whose Claims Were They?

Sun, 2022-04-17 16:07 +0000

If Sussmann made his bogus Alfa Bank claims to the FBI on behalf of a client, isn't it the client making those claims through its attorney?  Jonathan Turley thinks so.  Bold type below added.

Jonathan Turley:  Durham: Five Witnesses Connected to the Clinton Campaign’s False Russian Claims Have Refused to Cooperate Under the Fifth Amendment

Special Counsel John Durham continues to drop bombshells in filings in the prosecution of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann. Just last week, Durham defeated an effort by Sussmann to dismiss the charges.  He is now moving to give immunity to a key witness while revealing that the claims made by the Clinton campaign were viewed by the CIA as “not technically plausible” and “user created.” He also revealed that at least five of the former Clinton campaign contractors/researchers have invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to cooperate in fear that they might incriminate themselves in criminal conduct. Finally, Durham offers further details on the involvement of Clinton campaign general counsel Marc Elias and former British spy Christopher Steele in the alleged false claims.

[...]

According to Durham, the Alfa Bank allegation fell apart even before Sussmann delivered it to the FBI. The indictment details how an unnamed “tech executive” allegedly used his authority at multiple internet companies to help develop the ridiculous claim. (The executive reportedly later claimed that he was promised a top cyber security job in the Clinton administration). Notably, there were many who expressed misgivings not only within the companies working on the secret project but also among unnamed “university researchers” who repeatedly said the argument was bogus.

The researchers were told they should not be looking for proof but just enough to “give the base of a very useful narrative.” The researchers argued, according to the indictment, that anyone familiar with analyzing internet traffic “would poke several holes” in that narrative, noting that what they saw likely “was not a secret communications channel with Russian Bank-1, but ‘a red herring,’” according to the indictment.

Lying and Spying

Sun, 2022-04-17 11:41 +0000

Hillary Clinton Campaign attorney Michael Sussmann has been indicted by Special Counsel John Durham for lying to the FBI.  When Sussmann met with the FBI in 2016 to alert them to suspicious internet traffic between a Russian bank and a Trump email server, he said he was a concerned citizen doing his patriotic duty, not representing any client.  No big deal, right?  What's a tiny white lie when America is at risk of takeover by Putin puppet Donald Trump?  If Trump had a secret communications channel for receiving his orders from Putin, the FBI should investigate it.

Small problem number one:  The FBI decided nothing was nefarious about the DNS lookups (Domain Name System) between Alfa Bank and the Trump email server.

Small problem number two:  Sussmann billed his time preparing for and attending this and other meetings to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.  It gets worse.

Techno Fog:  CIA Bombshell: The Sussmann data was "user created"

Durham provided to the Court two sets of notes related to Sussmann’s representations to the CIA. The first was from Sussmann’s January 31, 2017 contacts with a CIA employee where Sussmann discussed wanting to provide to the CIA data on “the presence and activity of a unique Russian made phone around President Trump.” It was said that this secret activity started in April 2016 and continued after Trump’s “move to the White House.”

Sussmann alleged the Russian phone (YotaPhone) was always close to Trump (“only around the President’s Movements”), surfacing at his Trump Tower Network in April 2016 and being used through Wi-Fi at Trump’s Grand Central West apartment. The phone even “appeared with Trump in Michigan” when he was interviewing a Cabinet Secretary.

At a minimum, this confirms what we reported nearly two months ago: that the Trump transition data was passed to the CIA. Yet it’s also more than that. The CIA was provided with data all the way back from April 2016.

[...]

The CIA reviewed the Trump/YotaPhone data (and the Alfa Bank data) in early 2017. The fact that the CIA accepted this data on President Trump is its own scandal. In any event, the CIA’s findings are significant, as they concluded that the data was not “technically plausible” and was “user created and not machine/tool generated.” 

(bold above in the original)

Read the rest here.

Michael Sussmann's little white lie has opened a can of worms, revealing a well coordinated project involving a law firm, an investigative firm, a technology firm, researchers at Georgia Tech, the news media, and the Clinton campaign.  And there is sure to be more.  In fact, Durham granted immunity to one of the Georgia Tech researchers, and he plans to grant immunity at trial to an employee of the investigative firm.  Immunity in a case about lying to the FBI?  Though no one has been charged with it, the word "conspiracy" appears in the filings.

Durham Investigation — The Big Picture

Sun, 2022-04-17 11:35 +0000

Mark Wauck, Meaning in History:  John Durham Wishes Everyone A Happy Easter!

Durham’s memorandum is being billed on the conservative interwebs as a “bombshell”. It basically is, although there’s disagreement regarding what further conclusions can be drawn from Durham’s revelations. Among those who have weighed, to one extent or another, are: Sundance, Techno Fog, and Nick Arama at Red State. 

Sundance mostly refers the reader to Techno Fog’s analysis. However, he does also take a jab at Durham, claiming that Durham is—in the big picture—simply taking down Sussmann in order to protect the true malefactors: the government officials in the Intel agencies, the FBI and CIA. My own view is that that’s not where Durham is coming from. However, as a former but now, I hope, fully recovered believer in Bluto Barr I have to be careful to hedge my bets. Whether or not Sundance is correct about Durham to this extent, he (Sundance) is pointing to real questions—although he doesn’t spell them out. Presumably Durham knows the answers to those questions.

To be clear, Durham’s memorandum does make public just how strong a case he has against Sussmann—and presumably against Joffre, as well. Joffre has been designated as a “target” by Durham, but remains unindicted. To me, Durham’s case looked strong before, and it now seems overwhelming. A bit of history may be useful at this point.

Alabama Passes Sales Tax Exemption for Gold and Silver Coins and Bars

Fri, 2022-04-15 15:55 +0000

Jp Cortez:  Alabama Passes Sound Money Law, Expands Sales Tax Exemption Involving Gold and Silver

(Montgomery, Alabama - April 14, 2022) – With Governor Kay Ivey’s signature on sound money legislation today, Alabama has become the second state this year to expand its sales tax exemption involving gold and silver.

Alabama Senate Bill 13, championed by Sen. Tim Melson and Rep. Jamie Kiel, passed with unanimous support out of the Alabama Senate and then passed unanimously through the Alabama House before making it to the Governor’s desk.

In 2019, Alabama originally removed sales taxes from most gold, silver, platinum, and palladium coins and bars. This year, SB 13 clarified that the exemption covers all common forms of bullion, removed burdensome reporting requirements, and extended the sales tax exemption until 2028.

Backed by the Sound Money Defense League, Money Metals Exchange, and in-state supporters, SB 13 now fully ensures that Yellowhammer State citizens cannot be penalized with taxation when acquiring the monetary metals for investment, to protect their savings from the ravages of inflation, or any other reason.

Stefan Gleason, President of Money Metals Exchange, explained the importance of extending the existing sales tax exemption on precious metals: “Many states surrounding Alabama (Georgia and Florida) have cultivated pro-sound money environments, eliminating sales taxes on gold and silver. Alabama savers and investors are thankful that the legislature expanded and extended the state’s exemption.”

Alabama follows Virginia which had only days earlier expanded and extended its own sales tax exemption involving the monetary metals earlier this month.

Including Alabama, 41 U.S. states now fully or partially exempt gold and silver from the sales taxes. That leaves 9 states and the District of Columbia as the primary jurisdictions that still harshly penalize citizens seeking to protect their savings against the serial devaluation of the Federal Reserve Note.

Jp Cortez, policy director for the Sound Money Defense League, noted that SB 13 is part of a growing nation trend. “Tennessee and Mississippi, both states that border Alabama, have been considering the elimination of sales taxes on gold and silver. So are Alaska, Hawaii, and New Jersey.”

States are removing sales taxes from monetary metals for the following reasons:

  • Taxing precious metals is unfair to certain savers and investors. Gold and silver are held as forms of savings and investment. States do not tax the purchase of stocks, bonds, ETFs, currencies, and other financial instruments, so it makes no sense to tax monetary metals.
  • Levying sales taxes on precious metals is illogical because gold and silver are inherently held for resale. Sales taxes are typically levied on final consumer goods. But precious metals are inherently held for resale, not “consumption.”
  • Taxing gold and silver harms in-state businesses. It’s a competitive marketplace, so buyers in states with precious-metals sales taxes often take their business to neighboring states that have eliminated or reduced sales tax on precious metals. Coin conventions also tend to avoid the sales tax states.
  • Taxing precious metals is harmful to citizens attempting to protect their assets. Purchasers of precious metals aren’t fat-cat investors. Most who buy precious metals do so in small increments as a way of saving money. Precious metals investors are purchasing precious metals as a way to preserve their wealth against the damages of inflation. Inflation harms the poorest among us – including pensioners, those on fixed incomes, wage-earners, savers, and more.

Will Trial Reveal the Failings of Crossfire Hurricane?

Thu, 2022-04-14 15:54 +0000

Margot Cleveland:  Judge Denies Clinton Lawyer Micheal Sussmann’s Motion To Dismiss Charges For Alleged Lies To The FBI

The federal judge presiding over the criminal case against Michael Sussmann denied the former Clinton Campaign attorney’s Motion to Dismiss the Section 1001 false statement charge brought against him by the Special Counsel on Wednesday.

Declaring “the battle lines” drawn, in a short six-page opinion, the court rejected Sussmann’s attempt to have the criminal case against him tossed, saying it was too early to determine if Sussmann’s alleged lie to the former FBI General Counsel was “material.”

[...]

According to the Special Counsel’s briefing, it will also present testimony from “multiple government witnesses” confirming “that understanding the origins of data and information is relevant to the FBI in multiple ways, including to assess the reliability and motivations of the sources.” Those same witnesses will likely also testify that had they known Sussmann was presenting evidence compiled on behalf of the Clinton Campaign and Joffe, they would have more fully investigated the genesis of the white papers and how the data was compiled.

Of course, knowing that Sussmann was acting on behalf of the Clinton Campaign and Joffe is unlikely to have changed how members of the Crossfire Hurricane team approached the Alfa Bank material; after all, knowing the Clinton Campaign funded Christophe Steele’s dossier, made no difference to the Crossfire Hurricane agents.

Significantly, though, the law does not care how any one specific agent would have reacted but for a lie. Rather, on the issue of “materiality,” the question is whether the lie “is capable of influencing a decision,” and the test is an objective one.

Bulger-Biden Connection — An Intriguing Slice of Massachusetts Politics

Thu, 2022-04-14 12:24 +0000

Fox News:  Whitey Bulger's nephew played key role in Hunter Biden's Chinese business ventures

James "Whitey" Bulger's nephew, Jim Bulger, was a business associate of Hunter Biden, and according to emails obtained and reviewed by Fox News Digital, appears to have played a key role in a number of his Chinese business ventures. 

Whitey Bulger was a notorious Boston crime boss, who became one of the nation's most-wanted fugitives after fleeing Boston in late 1994. He was captured in 2011. Bulger was serving a life sentence for 11 murders and other crimes when he died in prison in October 2018. 

In addition to being Whitey's nephew, Jim Bulger is the son of William "Billy" Bulger, who served as president of the Massachusetts State Senate for eight years. Billy Bulger was an ally of John Kerry when he served in the Senate. Kerry’s stepson, Christopher Heinz, co-founded Rosemont Seneca with Hunter Biden and Devon Archer.

Jim Bulger served as the chairman of Boston-based Thornton Group LLC— a firm that joined forces with Hunter Biden’s Rosemont Seneca to launch its joint-venture with Chinese investment firm Bohai Capital to create BHR Partners. BHR Partners is controlled by Bank of China Limited.
