Tucker Carlson called Trump’s capitulation to the intelligence community’s line that Russia is a major threat a ‘hostage tape.’ Tucker then gave examples of how US intelligence agencies, the deep state, and NGOs, have kept America in wars for the past 20 years, including the invasion of Iraq, the killing of Libyan President Moamar Gadhafi, and the prolonged Syrian war that led to open borders in Europe.
Former Trump campaign official Michael Caputo and Roger Stone were approached in 2016 by Henry Greenburg who presented as a Russian and offered to sell dirt on Hillary Clinton for $2 million. Caputo investigated him and discovered that Greenburg had been an FBI informant for 17 years, and was likely spying for the Obama administration when he made his offer for dirt on Clinton.
Jake Morphonios pulls together the not-so-obvious facts about the Mueller investigation of Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign Manager, and shows how it is a major factor in the ongoing power struggle in the Trump administration. If Manafort is taken down, he could take Trump with him. It’s a can of worms, but if you are curious about how the world of politics really works, you will want to see this video.
For many years, it has been rumored that CIA operatives have been placed into sensitive positions in what normally is considered the private sector – particularly the media, education, and law enforcement. A record-setting number of ex-CIA operatives are openly seeking Democratic nominations for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections. The potential influx of military-intelligence personnel openly moving into legislatures has no precedent in US political history.
First, the FBI/ FISA memo demonstrates that there is a ‘deep state’ that does not want mere elections to threaten its existence. Second, the memo shows us that neither Republicans nor Democrats care about surveillance abuse of average Americans. Third, war hawks from both sides of the aisle used ‘Russia-gate’ to build animosity against Russia and bigger defense budgets for the Military-Industrial Complex. Paul advises: Be skeptical of both parties.
Phil Mudd, a former CIA and FBI agent, says he believes the FBI will make sure the agency eventually comes out on top in a head-to-head battle with the president. Mudd says the bureau is angry about the release of the FISA memo and about Trump’s criticism of the FBI. Last year, Mudd said the “government’s gonna kill this guy”
Trump said: “I would love to be able to bring back our country into a great form of unity,” Then he added: “Without a major event where people pull together, that’s hard to do. But I would like to do it without that major event, because usually that major event is not a good thing.” He is referring to an event like Pearl Harbor or 9/11. One can only wonder if the President has been briefed on the possibility of another Pearl Harbor or 9/11 with the result that he would have no choice, as the nation’s leader, but to establish the kind of unity that comes with public fear and martial law. Now we know that this possibility is on his mind.
Newly appointed FBI Director Christopher Wray was questioned by Congress whether investigator Mueller and FBI agent, Peter Strzok, turned the Democrats’ opposition dossier against Trump into an intelligence report to get a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. Wray refuses to release the documents that would show if this suspicion is true or false.
In an interview with Politico, Michael Morell, the acting director of the CIA from 2012-2013, said he became political during the last presidential race, endorsed Hillary Clinton, and criticized the new President. Morell admitted that the CIA was withholding daily briefs from Trump, which he was supposed to receive from the moment he became the president-elect.
Flynn was hired by the Turkish government to gather information on Fethullah Gulen, a radical Islamic cleric who has links to terrorism. Flynn’s investigation was perfectly legal. However, when Mueller was head of the FBI, he closed down the FBI’s own investigation of Gulen and quashed the testimony of an FBI whistleblower who tried to expose these facts.
