  • GOP’s McCain and Romney Were on the FBI’s Radar for Funding Trump Dossier..

    Well if unnamed super secret leakers say it, it must be true.

    But a full investigation of Fusion and the Dossier is in order, including these aspects. Let’s see all Fusion’s financial transactions.

    Clapper thinks Mueller should fold his tent and slink away BEFORE the second IG report blows the Russian Collusion scam wide open and forces him to resign.

  • VANITY: The Inspector General Report was very important...Here's why.

    Q: Does having a Certificate and a Domain imply secure traffic?

    A1: Domain = No. freerepublic.com is a domain. Registering a domain name does not create data security on your server. By analogy, posting your street number outside your house does not prevent burglary.

    A2: Security Certificate = mixed. Security Certificates are files with data showing other servers that yours has been deemed secure by a third party that has established credibility to issue such certificates (for $). Having a Certificate provides no security to you; the lack of a security certificate warns other systems that communicating with your system might be risky. Presumably the issuer has verified that your system is legitimate, has a firewall and various security measures in place, etc. This would have zero effect on insecurity of Hillary’s Blackberry.

    What is the significance of “Email Traffic being compromised, rather than the server hacked”? Here is a speculative answer:

    That sounds to me like they have discerned that data sent from Hillary’s Blackberry and/or iPad devices was being intercepted by someone before it ever got to her home brew server. The important thing is that her server wasn’t the weak point. The weak link was the Blackberry, and it’s user. That should not surprise anyone.

    IIRC, some if not all of Hillary’s many Blackberry devices were NOT specially secure devices. She asked for one of Presidential timber and was turned down. Hillary was warned that Blackberry’s were susceptible to having the signal intercepted if used outside of secure settings, such as special areas at her office. She reportedly ignored this routinely, even using a Blackberry device in Russia to correspond with Obama.

    The distinction you have focused upon is potentially the key to showing Clinton’s contempt for data security rules clearly laid out for her. Her crime was not “gross negligence” — it was deliberate misconduct.

  • New book details the inside story of Obama's birth certificate and the birth of fake news

    Chewbarkah to Seizethecarp

    Odd that Pfieffer doesn’t start with the real birth of fake news: Obama’s repeated claims in print that he was “Born in Kenya” (well, assuming he wasn’t). I’ll grant that Pfieffer is a crafty, smooth, deliberate liar in the book excerpt.
    1) He breezes through a claim that the first COLB (Put online by anonymous Obama’s minions) was the actual document created by the hospital to report the birth to the State. Uh, nooo. That was a computer abstract, generated c. 2008. It was indeed, very fake news.
    2) The “Obama found a copy of his old Birth Cert in a box of his mother’s things” story has been repeated 100’s of times — but always with the FAKE NEWS implication that it was a real BC. P. is admitting for the first time that what Obama found was a FAKE BIRTH CERTIFICATE. And we are to believe that Mr. Genius Constitutional Law Professor had to be told by a real lawyer that the document he “found” was a “gift shop souvenir”? If that’s not all BS, it implies that Obama never saw his “real” BC throughout his life. He knew his birth narrative was a fraud; that’s almost sad.
    3) P pretends they didn’t publish a real birth certificate because it’s conventional wisdom not to give an unprovable accusation legs by responding. We’re not supposed to notice that that does not apply when you can trot out hard evidence that KILLS the story and embarrasses your opponents. P. makes it clear: Obama either doesn’t have a real birth certificate, or it shows him to be a liar.

    It’s no small irony that the IG “can’t” discern what a mountain of evidence adds up, replicating the exact method used to obstruct justice by pretending to investigate Hillary Clinton. Anyone who wants to pretend the FBI and DoJ have changed need look no further.

  • McCain: Trump halting Korean military exercises a 'bad negotiating tactic'

    McCain’s two lifetime contributions to foreign policy:
    1) Helped Obama develop and arm ISIS and al Qaeda in Syria and Iraq. result: Mass death and destruction, Russia gains foothold in ME, international refugee crisis, endless war.
    2) Out of personal hurt feelings, fetched a copy of the Steele Dossier, gave to James Wolfe and James Comey, James Wolfe gave it to Ali Watkins, who published it in Buzzfeed. Result: Prevented the US President from conducting foreign policy as Constitution provides, aggravated world tensions, made US-Russia relations intractable.

  • Mueller warns that election, politics meddling by foreigners is still happening

    Chewbarkah to DCBryan1

    If election interference by foreigners is still happening after all this attention, is Mueller implicitly admitting that the federal authorities are completely incompetent?

    Other than Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russian bloggers in what is obviously justify-your-investigation theater, have there been ANY enforcement actions? Any new laws proposed to close these horrid loopholes that keep the government from ding anything whatsoever? Is Mueller pushing voter registration reform, requiring proof of citizenship, or even identity, for voting in California, etc.? That would help.

  • DOJ refusing to give Grassley access to agent who interviewed Flynn

    Chewbarkah to Alberta's Child

    “It wouldn’t explain why he hasn’t followed upon evidence that might...”

    The explanation is in the word “might”. Flynn has a deal he evidently can live with, and some hope that his case and Mueller’s entire game will unravel without additional risk to himself. Legal action now would gamble with the future of his family, spend resources he doesn’t have against a ruthless foe with unlimited budgets, and potentially leave him in prison. From Flynn’s perspective, sitting tight might be his best option.

    Grassley might want to help Flynn, but his likely motive is to catch the FBI and Mueller in conduct so perfidious that it will destroy any credibility they might retain. If the 302s were forged in this case, how credible are they against Papadopoulos, Page, etc.? The whole house collapses. If it comes out that Flynn is really being punished for undermining the CIA’s anti-Erdogan machinations, that’s a major bonus since it shows Mueller settling CIA scores instead of his approved scope. If pressure forces the DoJ to indict corrupt officials to get him off their backs, he can live with that too.

  • Conway's husband pens article defending constitutionality of Mueller probe

    06/11/2018 5:33:59 PM PDT · 45 of 71
    Chewbarkah to boycott

    Conway’s critique of Calabrese’s Constitutional argument is accurate. But he ignores the Achilles Heel of Mueller’s appointment: it does not comply with the statutes that govern appointment of SC’s.
    1) The statute allows SC’s only for criminal matters. The FBI investigation explicitly given to Mueller was, and was stated to be even by James Comey, a counterintelligence investigation. The statute makes no provision for counterintelligence investigations by SC’s.
    2) The statute requires specification of specific crimes to be investigated, to avoid unleashing witch hunts. But “collusion with the Russians by the Trump campaign regarding the 2016 election” is not a crime under any known statute. Rosenstein’s authorization letter(s) are crafted to create a wide-tanging witch hunt.
    3) The statute requires the AG or acting AG to assure that the appointee has no conflicts of interest. Mueller has massive conflicts of interest. Evaluation his conflicts seems to have been omitted by Deputy/Acting AG Rosenstein.

    “Why hasn’t Flynn’s legal team pushed the DOJ on this already?”

    I am sure you are familiar with the various explanations that have been floated (Flynn bankrupted by legal expenses; feds have the goods on him for something more serious, probably unrelated to the election, that the gov’t doesn’t want to air publicly; indictment of Flynn’s son used as leverage; etc.).

    What if the DoJ has investigated the Flynn case, and is soon to indict various persons for obstruction, forgery, perjury, conspiracy, etc., for altering evidence and scheming to falsely charge Flynn with lying to the FBI? Could the DoJ’s refusal to accommodate Grassley be driven by concern that releasing info and key witnesses might undermine such cases? (If so, I’d rather they just unsealed the indictments, but perhaps the overall strategy isn’t ready). I don’t necessarily endorse the above, but it seems to fit the circumstances.

    I find it easier to believe that the DoJ knows that the FBI was tasked with falsifying the evidence as part of the “lying” indictment they used as a screen for other matters. They want that matter to remain hidden.

    Chewbarkah to SkyPilot

    McCabe needs to get his, but I’m also interested in the implications of all this for John McCain.

    Ali Watkins worked for Buzzfeed before and after Buzzfeed published the Steele Dossier. Buzzfeed says they knew about her relationship with Wolfe. Then she had a meteoric rise when hired by the NYT. Great Big Questions that Need Answered:

    Did Ali Watkins provide the Steele Dossier to Buzzfeed?
    Did James A. Wolfe provide it to Ali?
    Did John McCain provide it to Wolfe?
    When was the Dossier “made available” to the SSCI and by what source?

    If McCain was not involved, it was a big waste of coincidences.

    Suggestion for Judicial Watch: Don’t rely on the federal government. Make a FOIA request to the NYPD for:
    the contents of the laptop;
    any copies of the hard drive;
    all investigatory results and analysis from the laptop or copies of the laptop’s contents;
    all correspondence about any of the above including to and from federal agencies and officials and The Office of the Special Counsel;
    all information about all items seized from or turned in directly or indirectly by Weiner in regard to the sexting investigation;
    anything regarding disposition of the Weiner laptop and or copies of its contents or other Weiner devices;
    and all correspondence of the NYPD with Andrew McCabe and Loretta Lynch on any matter within the time frame.
