Skip to comments.Carter W. Page: 0bama's mole planted for wiretapping application?
Posted on 02/07/2018 6:48:49 AM PST by Uncle Miltie
Carter W. Page worked for ultra liberal NY Senator Patrick Moynihan (url embedded above) and only ever gave money to Mccain (FEC database). Page never even contributed to Trump.
Conservative Tree house speculates he was still working for 0bama a few months before he joined Trump's campaign
Is Carter W. Page really an Obama swamp plant in the Trump camp for the purposes of opening infinite wiretapping for Hillary?
More research, ladies and gentlemen!
The question here...who on the Trump team led Carter Page around to be hired and placed as a foreign relations expert to Trump?
I think Page was an 0bama mole
If he wakes up with the head of his prize racing duck on his bed he’ll sing like a canary.
It was a set up.
And this is why I come here... great post, interesting question.
Who recommended him to the Trump campaign?
“Carter is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations”
The whole damn thing was a setup from the beginning.
Obama and Clinton schemed to use the MORE THAN WILLING FBI as their personal spying agency under the Russian Ruse of National Security.
They are ALL treasonous and despicable, and we THE PEOPLE need to see them ALL IN PRISON FOR THE REST OF THEIR SORRY LIVES.................
Everyone who served in the military or worked for the USG ( including eFFd BI informants) was “ working for obama”
This is like saying everyone who worked, studied, traveled, or did business in Russia was ‘ working for Putin”
Yes. And I don’t think for a nanosecond that the FISA Court was “hoodwinked”. I think they new the warrant application was hogwash, but for hatred of Trump, and for the good of the corrupt HRC Team, rubber stamped it anyway. A SECRET court NOT corrupt? Phullleeeze!
It’s worth noting that this disaster was cooked up by the top counter intelligence minds in the FBI
These guys are so stupid it’s frightening
You can bet the Chinese are eating our strategic intelligence lunch on a daily basis - and stealing our counter intelligence milk money to boot
The FBI needs to be purged of these buffoons
Carter Page: Global Warming Believer?
Supply and Demand: Deep-digging Next Steps Toward Sustainable SolutionsCarter Page - 2nd December 2015
Carter Page considers key drivers that will determine the long-term implications and success of the current climate talks in Paris.
At the end of the first day of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris (COP21), French President Francois Hollande, U.S. President Barack Obama and senior members of their staff had dinner together at LAmbroisie an upscale restaurant near the Bastille. In the surrounding city blocks of the 4th Arrondissement, far more modest monuments stood with little attention on the Boulevard Beaumarchais which leads up to Place de la République, the epicenter of these hubs of solidarity. Across streets in the neighborhood as well as other locations around Paris, pairs of shoes were left as part of a makeshift surrogate demonstration, after large-scale protests were understandably banned in the wake of security concerns following the terrorist attack a few weeks earlier. Despite some important recent advances in the introduction of technology innovations and the shifting balance of the supply mix which they have enabled, the limited progress on sustainable energy solutions to date ensures that any such societal transition of the type which this weeks protesters have advocated will represent a long road ahead. But a new momentum is clearly palpable.
In the wake of one of the largest gatherings of world leaders in history and despite restrictions on civic activism in the streets, the voice of concerned citizens may continue to follow a virtuous cycle which has been increasingly seen of late. Although even many optimistic observers predict that this months talks will avoid any formal agreement, the political gathering has substantially raised attention to climate, environmental and future energy issues while leveraging the growing levels of concern amongst societies worldwide. But for both citizens and leaders alike, real action in the future will be a far more essential driver to the future direction of progress in comparison to the many words which will be spoken and to a lesser extent heard over the coming weeks. In this sense, the changing landscape of world energy demand will prove essential. The participation of private sector leaders in the Mission Innovation initiative and other programs being launched on the sidelines of the COP21 negotiations offer some reason for optimism.
From an energy demand perspective, the number of shoes actually marching in the direction of cleaner solutions has undeniably been growing. The efforts here in Paris this week by Narendra Modi to bring together a broader coalition of Sunshine Countries represents a similar effort to get people to collectively step in this proactive direction. In gaining the initial participation of over 100 countries, the Indian Prime Ministers solar energy initiative has sought to harness the potential of a diverse array of counties close to the equator.
Just as protesters have historically expressed impatience with the current status quo and related policies, the growing momentum surrounding clean energy innovation can be observed in many civil society and business initiatives being unveiled in Paris. One example is the new Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP) which will be co-led by the Paris-based Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI). Three aspects of this particular initiative are telling indicators of the changing shape of a growing array of todays environmental projects. First, the fact that the DDPP initiative seeks to focus on local solutions in many of the worlds largest greenhouse gas emitting countries. Second and to a certain extent conversely, the Project will work to find collaborative global solutions in part by leveraging shared insights. Third, the essential first D of the title with the word Deep speaks to the impatient eagerness of project participants to move quickly toward finding far-reaching solutions.
A growing contingent of business leaders have also begun to take greater steps to echo and drive forward such sentiment. Michael Bloomberg, CEO of the eponymous company which he founded, and Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi both addressed the Council on Foreign Relations at a COP21 preview session in New York. Although some skeptics may potentially try labelling their comments as greenwashing, Descalzi spoke about Enis important moves including their accelerated switch toward natural gas and other efforts to decrease the level of carbon in their operating portfolio. In speaking with the tone of an activist about one of the initiatives which he has personally contributed to, Bloomberg was more impatient and direct: “...And that reduced greenhouse gases by 20 percent, no thanks to the federal or state governmentsno thanks to them. But you really can make a difference.”
Given the potential stakes of the future manifestation of catastrophic climate change, this field increasingly offers a rare case study of collaborative interaction across diverse states given the fertile ground for international cooperation. Political solutions based on respect and understanding might only be ripe for progress when the shared risks are so high. Just as supply and demand factors across most other segments of the world economy do not always directly follow policy prescriptions of governments, the same holds for energy. The changing spectrum of demand at a grassroots level may continue to become a more critical driver for success as the current evolution continues.

Like Hillary told her campaign staff.... if I lose we all hang.
Carter Page has been making the rounds on TV lately. Every time I see him I have an uneasy sense about him. I’m not sure what he’s trying to accomplish with all these appearances or the role that he’s played in this ongoing Russia-Trump investigation drama. I just don’t have a good feeling about him. I hope I’m wrong.
“The whole damn thing was a setup from the beginning.”
Yes, ALL OF IT! And sadly, it’s been far more successful to date that it should have been. If you’re Trump, just who do you trust? Answer, from the looks of things, no one.
Pro-Obama, Pro-Global-warming, pro-muslim all in one paragraph?
Despite this vision, other recent experiences of the Obama Administration have illustrated the headwinds often faced as citizens wish that their leaders “do something” to address the threat of IS. But the new calls to “do something more” pose even greater downside. Any intensification of war by France in partnership with its allies may carry significantly greater retribution risk than that which the United States faced in the wake of September 11. The larger presence of Muslim communities in Paris, throughout the country and across Europe as well as the current limitations on their integration into French society have created new challenges. Focusing instead on a more progressive approach at COP21 by exploring ways to integrate the Muslim minority into such future commitments by France and other countries could represent a smarter approach that effectively addresses both strategic challenges.
