  • S. Korea probes army plan for troops to control protesters

    A group of army generals rolling tanks and troops into Seoul to seize power. Paratroopers firing at large crowds calling for democracy. Tanks and armored vehicles stationed at universities to intimidate student protesters. Such scenes of military intervention in South Korea have been nonexistent since the country achieved democracy in the late 1980s. But revelations this past week of a document showing the military drafted plans to mobilize troops to suppress protests last year have struck a nerve among people in one of Asia’s most vibrant and wealthiest democracies. Some allege the plans even included a scenario for a coup....

    Top congressional Democrats wrote National Intelligence Director Dan Coats to demand the Trump administration keep classified information on Trump campaign spy Stefan Halper. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.), and House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), said the wider sharing of the information may put sources and methods at risk. Democrat leaders are panicked that information on the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign before the summer of 2016 will be released to the public.

    The Illinois state election board said Friday that it is likely the state referred to in special counsel Robert Mueller’s latest indictment as having been hacked into by Russian intelligence officers, the Chicago Tribune reported. Illinois officials said Friday that they had requested confirmation from the Justice Department that it was the state mentioned in the indictment. The hack has been public knowledge for nearly two years, with the FBI issuing an alert about the cyber attack in August 2016, one month after it took place. “We are grateful that DOJ has identified who the perpetrators are,” state election board...

    More than a hundred people have been killed in a suicide bombing in Pakistan as tensions rise in the country ahead of an election on July 25. At least 128 people died in the explosion at an election rally in the southwestern province of Baluchistan. Siraj Raisani, a candidate running for a provincial assembly, was among those killed in the town of Mastung. It was the deadliest attack in Pakistan in four years. Hours after the bombing, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was arrested after making a high-profile return to the country. Sharif was given a 10-year prison sentence in...

    Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said on Friday afternoon it appears the DOJ is continuing their efforts to keep material facts and even witnesses from Congress. Meadows tweeted: Remarkably, we learned new information today suggesting the DOJ had not notified Lisa Page of Congress’ outstanding interview requests for over 7 months now. The DOJ/FBI appear to be continuing their efforts to keep material facts, and perhaps even witnesses, from Congress.

    WASHINGTON — The White House has rebuffed concerns among American intelligence and law enforcement officials and ordered that more lawmakers be given access to classified information about an informant the F.B.I. used in 2016 to investigate possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to two American officials with knowledge of the decision. Both the director of national intelligence and the director of the F.B.I. tried to keep the classified documents tightly restricted, fearing that a broader dissemination of operational reports and other sensitive material could lead to more leaks of detailed information about the role of the confidential...

    The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, said Wednesday that Republicans recently were forced to call in U.S. Marshals to serve former FBI lawyer Lisa Page with a subpoena to testify before Congress, as he accused Page of “apparently” having “something to hide.” The revelation came after Page’s lawyer claimed she “will cooperate with this investigation,” even as Page defied that subpoena to appear on Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees. Lawmakers want to question Page about her anti-Trump texts with FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an...

    So much for all of the anticipated excitement in Washington today. We were all set for former FBI attorney and Team Mueller member Lisa Page to show up and testify before the House Judiciary Committee. While it was going to be a closed session, at least some of the details were likely to leak out and several of the members have quite a few questions about Page’s text messaging history with her illicit lover, Peter Strzok. But now that’s all been put on hold. Despite having been served with a subpoena to appear, Page’s lawyer announced last night that she...

    Former FBI attorney Lisa Page, whose text messages with FBI agent Peter Strzok became a flashpoint amid allegations of anti-Trump bias at the bureau, will not appear for interviews on Wednesday with House lawmakers, her lawyer said. Page's lawyer said in a statement obtained by Politico that she will not comply with a congressional subpoena to testify before the House Judiciary and the Oversight and Government Reform Committees. "Instead of responding to our requests to explain the scope of the interview and provide sufficient notice to allow her to prepare, the Committees chose to issue a subpoena," Page's attorney wrote....

    When I read the actual stories under those headlines, my reaction turned from dread to outrage. Jim Jordan isn’t being accused; he’s being railroaded. (snip) -- Like many Americans, when I saw last week’s headlines about my friend, U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), I couldn’t believe them. The accusations did not describe the man of character and courage I’ve known for more than a decade. When I read the actual stories under those headlines, my reaction turned from dread to outrage. Jordan isn’t being accused; he’s being railroaded. Jordan, as you may know, was a two-time NCAA Division I national...

    Brexit is dead –  strangled at the weekend by Prime Minister Theresa May and her cabal of Remainer cronies. It was a brilliant coup, masterfully conducted with a sadist’s attention to detail. All the ministers in the Cabinet were hauled up to Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country residence, where their phones were confiscated, as though they were naughty children. Then the stubbornly pro-Brexit ones who were rightly disgusted by the shaming sell-out deal May had cobbled together with her virulently Remainer civil servants were given the same choice Rommel was in 1944: cyanide pill or slow career death.The cyanide pill...

    Way back when CTH first began the deep dive into the systems and processes that were deployed in the 2015/2016 election cycle we eventually came to the conclusion that everything of substance, within the larger intelligence abuses, revolved around DOJ and FBI abuses of the FISA process. As an outcome of multiple research deep-dives we then focused on a specific foundational block of that usurpation, the fraudulent application presented to the FISA Court by officials within the FBI and DOJ-NSD (National Security Division). The October 21st, 2016, application to the FISA Court for surveillance authority upon U.S. person Carter Page;...

(I'm not being facetious: I accept the possibility that what happened in Germany, or similar, could happen here; I'm just not sure that the potential good from an armed citizenry in such a situation outweighs the day-to-day problems caused by masses...

    The Hill ^ | 7/6/18 | John Solomon
    Multiple reviews of whether FBI agents’ political bias affected the Russia-Trump collusion case remain in their infancy, but investigators already have unearthed troubling internal communications long withheld from public view. We already know from FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok’s now-infamous text messages with his fellow agent and reported lover, Lisa Page, that Strzok — the man driving that Russia collusion investigation — disdained Donald Trump and expressed willingness to use his law enforcement powers to “stop” the Republican from becoming president. The question that lingers, unanswered: Did those sentiments affect official actions? Memos the FBI is now producing to the...

    It’s time to “Make America Great Again” for the children of the world. It’s clear from the past administration, that wasn’t the agenda or the plan. While the Clinton team prepared for to move in the White House before the elections, some were calling her madam president before the votes had even began. When Trump won, it was a “SHOCK” for the “WHOLE” world, because even in the alternative media world, no one saw the slither of light that obviously Trump did. On the campaign trail like any other politician the real estate mogul never stopped. He continued to only...

    Daily Caller ^ | 06/29/2018 | John D. O'Connor
    In our nation’s worst governmental scandal, Watergate, the Federal Bureau of Investigation heroically kept widespread White House corruption from being concealed, eventually reviving important prosecutions. Sadly, in today’s increasingly convoluted moral universe, senior FBI officials, it now appears, have tried to artificially create serious “Russiagate” crimes, thereby becoming implicated in a scandal promising to be nastier than Watergate. Congress presently awaits DOJ documents which may or may not confirm what presently seem reasonable inferences of such FBI wrongdoing. In Watergate, the White House and senior DOJ officials attempted to limit the investigation to the seven arrested members of the burglary...

    Bob Woodward, a CIA mouthpiece, foisted off an absurd fiction on a gullible public, called “Deep Throat.” When his fraud was exposed, he and the CIA trotted out someone they claimed to be the “real real” Deep Throat, a stroke victim named Mark Felt who had been highly placed in the FBI during Watergate, and who “admitted” in a befogged state that he had been the informant to Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. It was fiction to “prove” fiction.

    According to a recent report, some Facebook investors are becoming tired of CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s style of running the company and may be considering a coup. Just a few months ago, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress about the Cambridge Analytica data scandal. Shortly before this, during a call with members of the media, including Breitbart News, one reporter asked Zuckerberg whether or not there had been a discussion amongst board members about replacing Zuckerberg as chairman of the company. Zuckerberg paused shortly and gave a short, clipped answer: “Not that I’m aware of.” According to a recent report...
