The Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General recently released a report regarding former FBI Director James Comey’s behavior in his final days as FBI director and the time following that, detailing various times in which Comey violated, with clear intent, several FBI and other federal policies.
In what is rather reminiscent of the Hillary Clinton case regarding leaking and deleting of e-mails back in 2016, the OIG report lays out all the violations Comey committed:
“Comey’s actions with respect to the Memos violated Department and FBI policies concerning the retention, handling, and dissemination of FBI records and information, and violated the requirements of Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement,” reads the OIG report.
Those memos are the ones Comey wrote in the first three months of Trump’s administration before the President fired him. The memos he had kept after leaving the FBI, which is a violation of DOJ and FBI policy. Upon leaving the FBI, he was required to return all official FBI documents, but Comey’s excuse to the OIG was that he considered those memos to be “personal records”, so he thought he should be able to keep them. The OIG, in their report, found no legal basis for him to believe they were his.
The OIG also said that Comey was at fault for failing to “tell anyone from the FBI that he had retained copies of the Memos in his personal safe at home,” despite the fact he had his former chief of staff, associate deputy director and three FBI officials went into his home to “inventory and remove all FBI property.”
So he kept FBI property, giving a poor excuse for it, there is no legal basis for him to have done so, and despite all of that, he won’t be prosecuted? What a disgrace, but that's not all of it.
What's more, Comey also further broke Bureau policy by sending a copy of a memo regarding General Michael Flynn, wherein the President had asked the then-FBI director to “let this go”, in reference to the criminal prosecution of Flynn regarding lying to the FBI (in what even Comey himself didn’t think he lied, but he was still prosecuted anyway), to a friend of his with instructions to give it to The New York Times.
In doing this, the OIG writes: “Comey violated FBI policy and the requirements of his FBI Employment Agreement when he chose this path. By disclosing the contents of Memo 4, through [Daniel] Richman, to The New York Times, Comey made public sensitive investigative information related to an ongoing FBI investigation, information he had properly declined to disclose while still FBI Director during his March 20, 2017 congressional testimony.”
Now, the law is rather strange when it comes to what a federal government official can disclose to the media and what one cannot. James Comey, in a tweet, quoted the OIG report when it says they had “found no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media,” followed by arrogantly asking people to say “sorry we lied about you” when he’s the one who has been lying for the past two years.
But in any case, that is important because leaking classified information is a prosecutable crime and if there is no evidence of doing so, a prosecution cannot happen. However, he violated several other FBI policies and by Comey’s own standard of “intent”, he should be prosecuted over them because there was clear intent.
If you remember back in 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey gave a press conference in which he detailed a number of ways in which Hillary Clinton violated multiple federal policies when she was Obama’s Secretary of State, including the use of an illegal and unsecured server as well as using a personal email address to conduct official business and to handle classified information. Despite laying out all of Hillary’s sins (at least the ones regarding gross negligence), Comey, in acting as Attorney General despite not having the authority to do so, said that she would not be prosecuted because there was no “intent” to violate these policies despite the fact that intent is not part of the statute and it’s difficult to inherently prove intent.
Hillary Clinton should’ve been prosecuted but was not because of dubious circumstances and the excuse that there was “no intent” (though I disagree, but that doesn’t really matter). For James Comey, there definitely was intent to violate policy and violation of policy should be punished, otherwise there is no reason for the policy to be there in the first place.
The OIG mentions that “by not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees – and the many thousands more former FBI employees – who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.” And while I agree, what really sets a dangerous example for not just FBI, but all federal employees as well, is the lack of punishment for violating such federal policies.
It’s far more dangerous for society to let someone who breaks the rules get away with it than for someone to just break the rules. In schools or in the workplace, when someone breaks the rules, they have to be punished and be made an example of. “Don’t do what he did or what happened to him will happen to you” is what people should be learning. Instead, through this inaction, the OIG and all of the DOJ set a far worse standard for federal employees than James Comey did.
Comey is one person and not even a well-liked individual. He’s the type of person corrupt politicians would be more than okay with throwing under the bus to save their own skin. But through this inaction, we are under the understanding that no one is judged equally under the law. That there certainly are people who are above the law and such a standard turns this country into an oligarchy far faster than any election could.
Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, James Clapper, Christopher Steele, James Comey and several other characters have all shown themselves to be above the law. Despite having broken the law to one extent or the other, they are all free men and women who got away with it. The fact that I’m not all that shocked that Comey gets to walk free is an indictment of the Department of Injustice. I don’t even EXPECT the law to be fully applied to these people when they break it.
Now, I’m not demanding that Comey be thrown in jail for life and the key to be thrown away. A no-name FBI agent leaked classified information regarding NATIONAL DEFENSE and only got a four-year prison term, so I can’t exactly expect to see the law getting rid of these people for good. But the fact that not a damn thing will happen to James Comey (and I expect nothing to happen to McCabe either) is truly sad. And yes, I know that the OIG and prosecutor John Durham are also looking into FISA warrant abuse by Comey, but I have no expectations for this.
Even if there is evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Comey, it’s pretty clear that these people are untouchable.
There is truly only one Judge in this world, who is incorruptible and unchangeable. These people might escape Man’s law and judgment, but they can’t escape God’s.
“Whoever says to the wicked, ‘You are in the right,’ will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations, but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.”

On CBS’s “60 Minutes”, while trying to promote his new book regarding Trump and the FBI (which is 100% likely to have b.s. all over it), former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired by President Trump on the eve of his retirement, claimed that “he and other Justice Department officials discussed recruiting Cabinet members to oust President Donald Trump using the 25th Amendment after Trump fired then-FBI director James Comey,” according to the Daily Wire.
The New York Times also reports that McCabe makes the claim that “top Justice Department officials were so alarmed by President Trump’s decision in May 2017 to fire James B. Comey, the bureau’s director,” that they contacted various Cabinet members to see how they would respond to the desire to apply the 25th Amendment, an amendment in the U.S. Constitution that allows for the Cabinet to “vote out” the president if he or she is incapacitated or otherwise is incapable of fulfilling his or her duties.
In other words, the FBI, at least McCabe, and the DOJ looked to test the water in Trump’s own Cabinet to see if they would be willing to remove the president using the 25th Amendment. Given that this attempt at a very obvious silent coup resulted in nothing the Deep State wanted, it is safe to assume the Cabinet did not wish to remove Trump from office.
Of course, that didn’t stop the Deep State from continuing trying to remove the duly-elected President from office just because they don’t like him one bit.
McCabe also made the claim that Comey’s firing “prompted Mr. McCabe to order the bureau’s team investigating Russia’s election interference to expand their scope to also investigate whether Mr. Trump had obstructed justice.”
Again, it’s clear this amounted to nothing because Trump fired Comey in May of 2017. It’s been nearly two years and there has only been suggestions that it was obstruction of justice from the media, but no concrete case could be made against Trump because the FBI operates under the Executive branch, which Trump is the boss of, so he can fire whomever he wants for whatever reason he wants.
This includes terrible FBI directors who are incompetent at best and outright treasonous at worst (and sometimes both, considering they failed to complete their objective of destroying Trump).
Now, the man who interviewed McCabe is CBS’s Scott Pelley. Pelley discussed his interview with McCabe on “CBS This Morning” on Thursday.
Pelley said: “The most illuminating and surprising thing in the interview to me were these eight days in May when all of these things were happening behind the scenes that the American people really didn’t know about.”
To me, it’s very illuminating of the kind of corruption there is in the Deep State, but it comes as no surprise to me. We’ve known that there has been a silent coup against Trump for about two years now. It’s just very illuminating seeing the details of something we knew very well about already.
In any case, Pelley continued: “There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment. These were the eight days from Comey’s firing to the point that Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel. And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president.”
Again, none of this comes as any surprise to me. Still, it is always good and fascinating to learn of the procedures that were undertaken to try and remove Trump from office that very clearly failed.
And the funny thing is that McCabe also confirmed that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein discussed having agents wearing a wire when speaking with Trump was discussed seriously, not as a joke, which Rosenstein tried to affirm.
Now, let me tell you a little something about what it takes to become an American citizen. Trust me, what I will tell you has more to do with this than you might think.
While seeking to become a citizen of the United States, people need to take certain oaths as part of becoming a citizen. Apart from taking tests and being able to speak basic English (although that might’ve been removed from the requirements for seriously dumb reasons), you have to swear allegiance to the United States of America.
And as part of this oath-swearing, you are required to swear and affirm that you will never attempt to overthrow the American government.
Obviously, everyone says that they won’t do that as part of trying to become a citizen, but people that try to overthrow the government very clearly receive some sort of punishment if they do try it. Now there exists in the penal code title 18 of the U.S. penal code § (Section) 2385 – Advocating overthrow of Government.
There is also title 18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason. However, I do not really think there is a case against McCabe (or anyone else involved in this silent coup) using these two code sections.
The Advocating overthrow of Government section talks about people who violently or forcefully seek to overthrow the government. Talking with Cabinet members to use the 25th Amendment does not even get close to that requirement. As far as Treason goes, that largely talks about levying war against the U.S. or adhering to our enemies, “giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere”.
So I do not think there is a case against McCabe using either of these two clauses.
However, that does not mean that McCabe and others involved with this silent coup, such as Rod Rosenstein, Comey, etc., should simply get away with it. Of course, I’m not saying we ought to break the law to punish them. That would make us no better than these scums of the earth.
However, what I am saying is that it’s become crystal clear just what we are dealing with. The Deep State is a den of snakes. Corrupt people at various levels and areas of the government that routinely poison the well.
It is not enough to simply defeat Democrats in elections, we have to completely defeat the Left socially and spiritually. You’ve seen, for the past two years (and just about any time there is a Republican in office) the sort of visceral and vile reactions the Left shows.
When Trump beat Hillary, everyone on the Left was crying foul while they themselves were guilty of foul play, being covered up by the Mueller investigation into Trump. Every day, the media suggested Russia either hacked the election, and when that was shown to be an asinine argument, began to insist Trump and Russia colluded to steal the election.
When Bush beat Gore, the Left went haywire on the Supreme Court and on Florida, crying foul play. Now, I don’t know if they were themselves guilty of similar foul play back then, but I wouldn’t put it past them to have at least tried something. I’m too young to remember the Bush presidency (I’m also not from here, as I moved to the U.S. when Obama was in office), much less remember the 2000 election, apart from the cries from the Left against Florida and the Supreme Court (and I only learned about all this long after Bush left office), so maybe those who were here for it can remember some shady things, but since I do not have anything even close to evidence, I won’t allude to much. All I’ll say is I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to destroy Bush in a similar manner to Trump.
When Lincoln beat Southern Democrat John C. Breckinridge and Democrat Stephen A. Douglas in the 1860 presidential election, seven states in the Democrat South decided to secede before Lincoln was even inaugurated.
The Left has historically HATED it when a Republican would beat a Democrat in a presidential election, going all the way back to the very first Republican president.
Instead of accepting the results of the elections like civilized and rational people, they often throw hissy-fits that last throughout that president’s entire tenure, be it one or two terms.
If it’s not outright secession from the Union, it’s attacking the Supreme Court and the State of Florida. If it’s not attacking the highest court in the land or the Sunshine State (Florida’s nickname), it’s insisting that the Republican victor of the election was in cahoots with foreign agents (a crime which the Clinton campaign and the DNC are very obviously guilty of themselves).
And now, we see some more details regarding the silent coup the Deep State has been attempting for the past two years. Again, it’s not surprising at all, but very illuminating.
And it’s fitting, to be quite honest. The Bible tells us an awful lot about works being made in the darkness coming to light.
Verses such as Luke 8:17: “For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light,” and Luke 12:3: “Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops,” are only some verses that come to mind (and a quick Google search).
Whatever the enemy, be it Satan or the Deep State, is plotting in the dark will eventually come out into the light. Be it soon after it is plotted or years and years later. Be it immediately or takes a lifetime, these things are made known to us eventually. Not to compare this silent coup to the Holocaust because any comparisons to it tend to cheapen the horrors of it, but the Holocaust was something that was discovered to have happened only after WWII had already ended. All-the-while people were looking at Hitler as this bad guy looking to rule the world, many were made unaware of the true horrors that evil socialist was carrying out in the dark.
Again, not to compare what Hitler did to what the Deep State is trying here because there really is no comparison in terms of their horrifying natures, but they both do share in common that they are works by evil people, people completely devoid of Christ in their hearts, working in the darkness against people they hate/hated.
And both have come out into the light for the whole world to see. Of course, the extent of the silent coup is not quite yet known so far, but it will be made known eventually, whether it be in a few months, years, decades, or in the afterlife, it will be shown.
Certainly no part of it is any secret to God. The Deep State can hide whatever they want from the public for however long they feel is necessary, but nothing they do is a surprise to God. He knows precisely what they are doing and what the intentions of their hearts are.
We will see what kind of excuses these people come up with to justify their entrance into the Kingdom of God. I bet none of them have the correct answer.
1 Corinthians 4:5
“Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God.”

Author: Freddie Marinelli.
I wrote at the end of my previous article, the one discussing how Trump is not caving on the wall, that I might write an article discussing the various reasons not to allow any democrat to beat Trump in the 2020 Presidential election.
Well, here’s my list for as many reasons as I can think of (that won’t make this article as long as an encyclopedia because I could probably list many more reasons).
Reason number one: No matter who becomes the Democrat Party nominee, they are all basically the same. What do I mean by that? Well, unlike the Republican Party, which is stupidly split on a lot of issues such as immigration, healthcare and many other things, the Democrats, to their credit, actually know how to stay united.
They may debate with one another as to what might be the best option, but at the end of the day, they manage to come together and actually get things done in their agenda. And their agenda really differs little from person to person.
While Trump’s and Jeb’s, or Cruz’s, or Rubio’s agenda are fairly different, the Democrats all follow the Leftist agenda. Sure, one might prioritize something different from another, but it all leads them to the same place: the growing in size and scope of the government and their own power, while taking your freedoms away.
It doesn’t matter if they prioritize gun control, climate change, LGBT “rights”, healthcare, it all leads to the Left getting more and more power. Ultimately, these are all things every Leftist agrees on. So it doesn’t matter if Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Beto O’Rourke becomes President, they would all basically be the same and support the exact same things. There really is no good option among them, just the least likely to utterly screw over the country (and there is little difference in that area as well).
Reason number two: Just as Trump was able to dismantle Obama’s legacy, so would any Democrat be able to do that to Trump’s.
The unfortunate thing about the GOP stabbing Trump in the back repeatedly is that they don’t get much done. And what they get done can easily be overturned. And what is overturned, even if unconstitutionally, they will not seriously fight against. The proof is in the fact that they had ample opportunity in the past couple of years to get rid of Obamacare and did not bother to do so. As far as the tax cuts go, as good as those are, they can easily be taken away. With a Democrat running the country again, the GOP would do little to actually fight back, just like during the Obama years.
This means saying goodbye to our tax cuts and being faced with job-killing tax rates. It means the dismantling of our border. It means the ultimate destruction of our freedoms. Maybe not with the next Democrat President, but it would certainly lead to that in the future.
Reason number 3: We now know the Left’s true face. I often say that Trump’s election victory didn’t create this Leftist insanity, but it did let the mask slip from the Left’s face. In the past, the Left would at least pretend to be a little more reasonable. That is long gone now.
I’m not saying that had Hillary won, we would be in a better place. Far from it, the magnitude at which we’d be screwed is incalculable. Not to mention that the very reason Bernie Sanders felt confident to come out as socialist, and other people have felt confident to come out as socialist, is 8 years of Obama moving the needle of our country’s governmental system farther and farther to the Left.
Trump didn’t create Bernie Sanders or help Bernie come out as socialist, but it did get the Left to more aggressively embrace socialism. No, maybe not everyone on the Democrat Party is quite so willing to call themselves socialist, but that’s where they’re headed. If socialism is what sells and gets them votes, that’s what they’ll embrace (not that they weren’t embracing it before, but they were at least trying to not come right out as socialists).
This means implementing more and more socialist policies that will lead to the United States emulating China at the very least. Since we are still a super power and the wealthiest country in the world, we can take some hits, but if the trend goes farther and farther Left, we will eventually not be the wealthiest country in the world and we will quickly fall from grace as a super power.
Again, maybe not with the next immediate Democrat President, but that’s what it would lead to.
Reason number 4: there is no other Republican out there that has the cojones to do what Trump is trying to do.
One thing that we’ve all noticed in the past couple of years (and really throughout Obama’s tenure as well) is the fact that the GOP tends to be pretty chummy with the Democrat Party and often ignores the very constituents that elected them into power. In what can only be considered an abusive relationship, the GOP tries to appease Democrats and the media, all the while pretending to be fighting for something, but ultimately not getting anything done. Whenever the media calls them racist, they bow their heads in shame and say “I’m sorry, I will never do something like that again”. Regardless of what they do, it’s never enough for the Democrats and the media, with them demanding the Republicans hand over everything including the kitchen sink.
These past two years in particular have shown this level of cowardice. While not all Republicans are guilty of this, far too many have been complacent at the least. John McCain, up to his death, opposed Trump (and I imagine he was all too happy to have his funeral be a massive Trump-bashing fest). Jeff Flake is still a nuisance. Bob Corker ditto. And incoming GOPe (GOP establishment) people like Romney certainly will take up the mantle left behind by these people.
The evidence to this is clear when they made their best efforts to try and legitimize the illegitimate Mueller investigation, with Flake actually trying to pass legislation that protects the crooked prosecutor.
With Trump out of the picture, what Republican in Washington or in government in general would be willing to do what Trump’s been trying to do: take on the Deep State? I wouldn’t put my trust in Ted Cruz, as conservative as I think he is. Same goes for people like Rep. Mark Meadows or Rep. Jim Jordan, as good as I think they are (and they’re really trying to help Trump build the wall here).
Now, I know I said in a previous article that I did not picture Trump doing this back in 2014, two years before the 2016 election. So someone could potentially come up and try to take on the Deep State, but I don’t think there’s much of a chance of that. Even less that they’d succeed at any capacity.
Not trying to be pessimistic here, just trying to highlight the importance of helping Trump win in 2020.
The next Democrat President, whether he or she comes into power after 2020, 2024, 2028, or whatever, will most likely be the most Leftist and socialist President we will ever have seen. One who would make Obama look like Reagan by comparison. And the ones to follow the next Democrat POTUS will only move the line farther to the Left until we reach the end: complete and total communism.
Even if Republican Presidents were to be elected in between those Democrats, there’d be little they could do, even if they were willing to.
This is why it’s so important that we help Trump win 2020 no matter what. Of course, not building a wall would be a huge detriment, but that’d still be no reason to allow a Democrat to take over, ensuring that the borders get even less security and more lives grow at stake.
It’s also why it’s so important to elect truly conservative, truly CHRISTIAN people to government and to get truly conservative and truly CHRISTIAN SCOTUS justices.
For as much as I talked about Kavanaugh being conservative and a Christian, I might have to eat my own words, given what he’s done so far. Of course, there is still a possibility for redemption for him (both in terms of redeeming himself to conservatives and being redeemed by Christ), so I’m not quite ready to say he was a mistake of a pick (Amy Coney Barrett wouldn’t have done what Kavanaugh did, though), but he’s got a lot to make up for.
If we can get more and more conservatives and Christians into power, then there is a chance at truly defeating the Left, but that will have to come with a complete Christian revival and the ability and willingness to go after the Deep State’s crookedness, not just in calling them out over it, but to execute justice as well.
Trump won’t be around forever. Unlike Xi Jinping, Trump can’t declare himself President For Life (I imagine a future Democrat President would try that, though). So once Trump is gone from office, what comes after? That’s something we have to come to answer sooner rather than later, because for as much as I hope and think Trump can be re-elected, there is a chance he won’t be.
When the time comes for him to leave office, we will have to brace ourselves for what would come after. And there is no better way to do that than to consult and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
You see, while I’ve given a few reasons to not allow the Democrats to beat Trump in 2020 (and I think there are a bunch more, but I don’t want to make this article too long), the matter of fact is that I’m probably right about what would come with a Trump defeat. As a result, nothing good will be brought about, and we could well be facing the beginning of the end of America as we know it (unless we have the aforementioned Christian revival, but God knows if or when that would happen).
That’s not to say there wouldn’t be a United States of America in, say, 50 or 100 years, but it would be practically unrecognizable from the one that was founded.
But the good news about even such a scenario happening is that we are not only citizens of the United States, but also citizens of the Kingdom of God. I saw this often during both the 2012 election and 2016 election (and I’ll probably also see it in 2020), but I remember a post that read “regardless of who’s President, Jesus is King,” or something to that nature. And it’s true.
Jesus was King before America was founded. He has been King for as long as America has been around, and He will be King after America falls.
One of the main objectives of this site has been to try to direct people to Christ. Though I don’t always get to that point, I think I really should start doing this far more often. Because the unfortunate reality is that, eventually, one of these lunatics is going to be in the White House. As a result, we really must brace for what is to come. And there is no better way to brace for disaster than in the comfort of Christ.
My mission is not just to fight for the survival of America, which really is only a secondary mission, but to also fight for the survival and growth of Christianity; helping as many people to receive Christ as I possibly can.
So that’s the good news regardless of what may happen from here on out. Even if evil wins against America, Jesus has already won against evil. That being said, I think we all should try and fight against the evil that wishes to destroy America. Though that really goes without saying.

Recently, the DOJ’s Office of Inspector General report on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton e-mails investigation revealed a text message conversation between two FBI employees the day after Trump won the 2016 election.
Here is the exchange:
FBI Employee: “I’m very upset.”
FBI Employee: “haha”.
FBI Attorney 2: “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently.”
FBI Employee: “Don’t stress. None of that mattered.”
FBI Employee: “The FBI’s influence.”
FBI Attorney 2: “I don’t know. We broke the momentum.”
FBI Employee: “That is not so.”
FBI Employee: “All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out. Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.”
Love you too, bud.
But seriously, you might be thinking “this is just what the Left in general thinks of us, what’s the big deal? They’ve called us worse.” True, but those were all people on social media or in the MSM. These people are FBI AGENTS who are supposed to REMAIN UNBIASED!
Take a look back at these texts. I’ll also remind you that Peter Strzok also texted Lisa Page that “they” would stop Trump from becoming President. I don’t know who these two employees are, but clearly there was a larger conspiracy to rig the election.
Of course, this is nothing new to us. We knew that Hillary conspired to cheat and we also knew that Obama did as well, but this really puts things into perspective. This is evidence that the FBI was politically biased throughout the campaign. Meaning, there is reason to believe there was bias in the handling of the e-mail investigation as well.
The FBI attorney was wondering what they could have done differently. Regarding what? It’s unclear. The conversation seems to focus on the Hillary investigation. But the larger context is regarding the election. What could they, as FBI agents, have done to keep Trump from becoming President? Clearly, not very much. But what gives them license to believe they even could have done anything? Was their handling of the investigation meant to help out Hillary?
Of course, we know that it was. Comey usurped the authority of the Attorney General by exonerating Hillary and not seeking charges against her. He didn’t have the power to do that as FBI director. The FBI director can make recommendations to the AG, but he/she does not have the authority to decide the fate of the person being investigated.
But again, as we already knew all of this and the corruption within the FBI, this further puts things into perspective.
Now the conversation didn’t just end there. Of course, the attorney continued his or her upset tirade by saying: “I just can’t imagine the systematic disassembly of the progress we made over the last 8 years. ACA is gone.”
And the employee made further known just what he thinks of us: “Who knows if the rhetoric about deporting people, walls, and crap is true. I honestly feel like there is going to be a lot more gun issues, too, the crazies won finally. This is the tea party on steroids. And the GOP is going to be lost, they have to deal with an incumbent in 4 years…” And then he says something pretty interesting: “We have to fight this again.”
Who is “we”? Who is the “we” that Strzok talks about when saying they would stop Trump? Of course, I have no doubt that it’s the Deep State, the swamp, the Obama people who can’t stand to lose and must not allow people their right to vote for people they disagree with.
To this elitist jackhole, we are too stupid to know what is right. We are too uneducated and must be helped in choosing who to vote for. And if we vote for the wrong person, they will do whatever they can to destroy said person, undermine that person and rule his or her election null and void.
This is corruption at its finest. Thankfully, the American electorate system seems to have been solid enough that no matter what these holier-than-thou elitists tried to do, they wouldn’t get away with it.
And since it’s in my nature, I will obliterate this man’s claims here.
First, the only ones who are crazy here are the people who believe themselves big enough and bad enough that they could influence and alter the results of an election to benefit themselves every time out. The only ones crazy here are the ones who fight for a political side that would ultimately see the United States destroyed from within, that would see American citizens at the mercy of the government… or Sharia Law, honestly. The only ones who are crazy here are the ones who believe a fetus is nothing more than a random assortment of cells, Islamic terrorists can be appeased by giving them jobs, Antifa terrorists are peaceful angels sent from Heaven, a man can be a woman and vice versa, and that MS-13 are innocent souls.
Second, what gun violence? You mean the one that ravaged the nation during Obama’s 8 years when he did absolutely nothing about it, even with a Democrat majority in his first 2 years as POTUS? You mean the one where we saw record numbers of shootings perpetrated by Democrats or Muslims? I won’t deny there isn’t gun violence in Trump’s America, but Obama had the best opportunity to actually do something about it and did nothing. Not to mention that some of the most dangerous places in the country in terms of gun violence are places where Democrats have power, such as Chicago, Oakland and Detroit.
Third, I simply love how he blasts poor and middle class people. Aren’t the Democrats supposed to be the ones who cared about the low and middle class people? Aren’t they the ones who do great things for the downtrodden? How are Trump’s supporters the poor and middle class?
This is just another example of how the Left has utterly abandoned the low and middle class. Particularly, the white, blue collar class. They make fun of you, they attack you, and then, somehow expect you to vote for them? What a joke.
Finally, the FBI employee makes fun of Trump’s promise of bringing back jobs and of your expectations that jobs will “magically” come back. Well, abracadabra, jerk. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (from March 2018), Donald Trump has created nearly 2.5 million jobs since becoming President. This goes along with record-setting unemployment rates in the last few months as well.
Reading what these people think of us, I feel mixed emotions. For one, I feel indifferent, as this is something I would expect out of mind-numbed Leftists who believe Obama is God. The problem is that, as I mentioned earlier, these are FBI employees. They’re law enforcement. They’re SUPPOSED to remain unbiased in how they handle investigations and their overall work. THAT is what makes me angry. Although, it’s also something to be expected. This is the swamp, after all. The Deep State. These are corrupt, biased and evil people we are talking about.
People who have seemingly worked to alter the results of an election. People who have sought to undermine the people they are supposed to serve. People who have taken Democracy into their own hands and tried to taint it.
We really have to thank the Lord for Donald Trump’s election victory. It’s not just Hillary that he had to beat. It was also government corruption. And by some miracle, he managed to do it. All thanks to the Lord.
Because here’s the thing: it really doesn’t matter what these FBI employees tried to do or will try to do. It doesn’t matter the extent Hillary and Obama and his administration went to cheat. It doesn’t matter what they think they are capable of. Ultimately, it is God who decides what happens.
He gets to decide who wins an election. He gets to decide what policy an authority figure enacts. None of it is a surprise to Him. He gets to decide who goes where and what they end up doing. For as powerful as the FBI might think they are, or might actually be, they are absolutely nothing compared to the Lord.
Usually, I would use an analogy here to compare a situation, but no analogy could honestly be properly used. Because there is nothing that can compare to God’s power. Nothing that can compare to the power gap that exists between God and Man. Man, ultimately, has no power. We only have as much power as the Lord gives us.
These fools may think they can play God. Ultimately, they are nothing.
We must also be thankful that these things are coming to light. It might be scary to believe our government can be so corrupt as to try and steal an election away from the American people, but it’s worse to not be aware of the danger.
Make no mistake, this is war. A war that we cannot afford to lose and cannot afford to not participate in. This isn’t Democrat vs. Republican anymore. It’s not conservative vs. liberal. It’s the Left vs. We the People. It’s Evil vs. Good. It’s government corruption vs. the American people. The Deep State vs. the rest of us.
The swamp may be big, but it’s not unbeatable. As I said before, it is the Lord who gets to decide who wins and who loses. If He is with us, who in the world are they to be against us?

It’s been reported lately that the FBI had planted a spy in the Trump campaign, further signifying the Deep State’s desire to get rid of Donald Trump before he was even President. Even as a candidate, he posed a threat to the Establishment, which is a no no, in their minds.
Trump even tweeted: “Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a ‘hot’ Fake News story. If true – all time biggest political scandal!”
So, in a flimsy attempt of damage control, the fake news media, particularly the Washington Post and NYT, released stories saying the FBI’s intentions were to “protect” Trump, not spy on him.
The Washington Post’s headline: “The FBI didn’t use an informant to go after Trump. They used one to protect him.”
Really? Let me ask how this line would hold up: “You got it all wrong, Your Honor. I didn’t rob that bank to steal the money; I robbed the bank to keep the money from being stolen by other people.” Or “You’re wrong, Mr. Principal. I didn’t stuff little Jimmy in a locker to be mean to him. I stuffed him in there to protect him from other bullies.”
The Post article was written by, well, what do you know, a former FBI agent. It reads: “Trump and his backers are wrong about what it means that the FBI reportedly was using a confidential source to gather information early in its investigation of possible campaign ties to Russia. The investigation started out as a counterintelligence probe, not a criminal one. And relying on a covert source rather than a more intrusive method of gathering information suggests that the FBI may have been acting cautiously – perhaps too cautiously – to protect the campaign not undermine it.”
Oh, so the FBI was only trying to protect the Trump campaign? From foreign intelligence? How nice of them. But let me ask one question: if the FBI was only looking to protect the Trump campaign from foreign intelligence, why didn’t they do the same with the Clinton campaign?
Why didn’t they plant a spy in the Clinton campaign as well? If the sole purpose of the FBI spy was to look into foreign intelligence in order to protect a campaign, why not do it for both campaigns? Surely Obama would be more interested in protecting the Clinton campaign than the Trump campaign. Why would he only “help” Trump’s campaign and not Hillary’s? Does he not like Hillary? Did he want her to lose? Why only put a spy in Trump’s campaign if the entire reason for a spy was for national security reasons?
Of course, you and I both know the answer to these questions. The FBI didn’t spy on the Trump campaign to protect it. They were spying on it to destroy it, if at all possible. Which clearly didn’t work.
Now, what did the NYT say about this? Here’s their headline: “FBI Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims.”
If the FBI knew the Trump campaign had ties to Russia, wouldn’t that have made a major headline at some point during the election? This whole “Russia ties to Trump” only started AFTER Trump won, not before. If the FBI had even somewhat of a hunch that Trump had ties to Russia, it would certainly have leaked to the press.
The funny thing is that the Times says this: “Details about the informant’s relationship with the FBI remain scant. It is not clear how long the relationship existed and whether the FBI paid the source or assigned the person to other cases.”
So the MSM has next to no facts regarding the FBI spy, his or her relationship with the FBI, or the information he or she gathered, but still wants to say the intentions were only to protect Trump.
Read those headlines again. They read matter-of-factly, don’t they? As if to say: “No, Trump. You’re wrong! The FBI was only trying to protect you because they’re the good guys and were only looking into your ties to Russia. They were not focused on you.”
Those are CLAIMS the Post and NYT are making, and yet, both are entirely wrong based on fact and logic.
Again, if the purpose of having a spy in the Trump campaign was to investigate possible ties to Russia in order to protect the campaign, why wouldn’t they do the same for the Clinton campaign?
So far, without having the FBI or a special counsel looking into it, we have found far more evidence of the Clinton campaign rigging the 2016 election (both for the primaries and the general election). We have found more Russian collusion within the Clinton campaign. We have found more foreign intelligence used against Trump than we have found foreign intelligence used against Hillary. Remember Christopher Steele? The author of the Golden Showers dossier? British.
If the FBI felt it necessary to spy on the Trump campaign to protect it from foreign entities, why didn’t they do the same for the Clinton campaign? And if people in the Clinton campaign knew the campaign was dealing with foreign entities, why didn’t they blow the whistle or inform the FBI or DOJ? If such a thing is a threat to the campaign, why wouldn’t they talk?
I feel it’s unnecessary to be asking all of these questions when the answer is as clear as glass. The FBI wasn’t looking to protect Trump – but rather destroy him. The FBI didn’t put a spy in the Clinton campaign because Clinton is part of the Establishment. You don’t go about spying on your own people like that. And even if you do, you certainly don’t bring what they are doing to people’s attention, much less prosecute or bash them for it.
This is the Deep State we are talking about. The Obama DOJ. The Obama FBI. There was no justice with Obama’s DOJ and FBI – only corruption.
Even then, I find it hard to use the word “corruption”. It’s the Deep State. There is no corruption there. Why? Because you can’t corrupt what was never honest. What was never moral. What was never right. Frankly, corruption within the Deep State would mean delineating from the status quo of the Establishment, which no member does.
The Establishment, for as long as it’s been around, has always been immoral. Its very definition is unjust. And they could never allow someone like Trump to be in power. Never mind what they think of him. Never mind that they believe he is brutish and stupid. That’s not what bothers them. Frankly, they are ok with brutish and stupid people. The elected bunch of the Deep State DEPENDS on brutish and stupid people. No, what they truly hate the guy for, what drives them to destroy him isn’t his attitude or behavior or demeanor. It’s his status as an outsider.
A man who has lived his entire life as an outsider cannot be allowed to come in and run the place. He’s meant to stay an outsider. He’s meant to remain out of power. He’s meant to deal with the things THEY want to implement on people, whatever strikes their fancy. He’s meant to SUBMIT to the Deep State as pretty much everyone else is meant to. And he’s not supposed to call them out. He’s not supposed to let people know that there are people in power with more control than civilians believe.
It’s those things that tick off the Deep State the most. The fact that he’s an outsider coming in and not only running the place, but doing it SUCCESSFULLY AND WITH TONS OF SUPPORT. But perhaps what ticks them off the most is not just that he’s an outsider. It’s that they haven’t beaten him thus far.
Every attempt at thwarting him, destroying him and his reputation, has resulted in utter failure. The Establishment has never had so much trouble getting rid of someone in the past. They would either convert them and make them part of the Establishment, like with Lindsay Graham, or scare them into silence.
Not one of their tactics has worked so far, and that is what annoys them the most.
So, they do what they can with what they’ve got. They spy on their opponent and disregard any consequence that may follow in their public view. They don’t honestly care. They want Trump gone through whatever means necessary.
The only problem with that is what happens if they succeed. If they take out Trump through illegitimate means, that will enrage much of America. No Democrat would be elected for a generation. And if they take out Pence as well, let me tell you, there is a reason the 2nd Amendment still exists.
While I hope it never comes to it, if pushed around enough, the American people will take up arms against a tyrannical government once again.
That being said, there isn’t much, if any, indication of such a thing coming to pass. Like I said, the Deep State’s attempts at destroying Trump have all ended in failure. Not to mention that the more they fight him, the more people will be willing to support him. Meaning, the more people will be willing to vote Democrats (and RINOs) out of Congress. That only chips away at the power and influence they have.
Regardless, with all of that said, it’s honestly funny seeing the MSM trying to defend the FBI’s actions in such a way. First of all, those actions are indefensible. Second, those headlines indicate a very flimsy attempt at defending this. Honestly, who would believe this garbage?
Well, to their credit, it’s entirely possible that more people will honestly believe this trash than their attempts at protecting MS-13.
“Your tongue plots destruction, like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit.”

While you can clearly conclude that I believe the Deep State is very much real, it’s pretty great and astonishing to see that a majority of Americans (or at least people in the country) believe that the Deep State exists or that there’s a good chance it does.
Monmouth released a poll on Monday, March 19, 2018, and Politico reported on it. “Of the 803 adults polled, 27 percent said they believe the unelected group known as the deep state definitely exists. An additional 47 percent said it probably exists. Sixteen percent said it probably does not exist and 5 percent said they believe it definitely does not exist,” reads the Politico article.
Given the mountain of evidence piled to suggest and conclude that the Deep State does indeed exist (i.e. the Peter Strzok/Lisa Page texts, the Clinton campaign’s contribution to the Steele dossier and the multitude of people involved in the FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page just to name a few), I would only hope that a majority of people would be able to recognize the facts, even when the MSM tries to bury those stories or tries to discredit them.
This very poll, which has “a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points,” according to Politico, shows that the majority of the country does not buy into the idea that Trump is just some crazy conspiracy theorist who is paranoid that someone is out to get him. The majority of the country believes that there ARE people who are out to get the President, or at least undermine his administration.
But wait, there’s more. According to Politico: “Republicans and independents were more likely to respond that they believe in the existence of the deep state, with 31 percent and 33 percent respectively. Only 19 percent of Democrats said the deep state definitely exists.”
Let’s focus on that last statistic. 19% of Democrats said the Deep State definitely exists? That may not seem like an awful lot, but it’s actually a lot more significant than you may believe. That’s, honestly, a bigger number than you would think if you were to only watch the Fake News media. A fifth of the Democrats polled believe the deep state definitely exists. THAT’S HUGE AND VERY SIGNIFICANT!
Granted, I would hope that, as time goes on and more evidence comes to light to show that the deep state is very much real and is trying to undermine and take down a duly-elected President, that number would rise. But as it is, that number is a pretty good start.
But the poll doesn’t end there. It also talks about the government spying on American citizens. “Approximately 80 percent of those polled also indicated they believe the U.S. government is monitoring or spying on the actives of American citizens. Fifty-three percent said they believe the activity is widespread, and 29 percent said the monitoring is happening, but not widespread. Only 14 percent said they believe there is no monitoring happening at all,” according to Politico.
It goes further in this particular discussion: “Few respondents, or 18 percent, said they believe government monitoring is usually justified. Fifty-three percent, however, said that government is only sometimes justified and an additional 28 percent said it is rarely or never justified.”
On this particular issue, I’d have to align myself with that 29 percent of people who believe it’s happening but not widespread and that 53 percent of people who believe it’s only sometimes justified.
I don’t believe the government is anywhere near powerful enough to spy on absolutely everyone in the country. There’s simply too many people in the country for all intelligence agencies to be able to monitor. And I’m mostly talking about listening in on phone calls and using cameras on your devices to spy on people. I believe the government is capable of that, but not for nearly everyone in the country.
And when they do spy on people, I believe it’s only sometimes justified. There are some cases of terrorist sleeper cells being discovered and arrested, so I can see why it’s sometimes justified. But, obviously, it’s not always justified. We don’t want to be anywhere close to a 1984 George Orwell situation in the country. But there are some times when it’s certainly justified.
For all the times I’ve attacked the FBI, there needs to be a very specific point to be made. And that point is that I’m not attacking the FBI as a whole. By which I mean that I’m not antagonizing the field agents and those who are doing their best to actually keep our country safe from foreign and domestic threats. The people I’m antagonizing are those at the top and those who have some political standing or power - the crooked cops. People who allow their politics to cloud their judgment and drive their actions. People like Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Comey, Andrew McCabe and the such.
This, I believe, is something that really needs to be said. I don’t hate the FBI. I think that their usual, day to day activity is typically good for the country. What I hate are the cases in which people who should be impartial show Leftist bias and hatred towards a duly-elected President. What I hate is the corruption within the FBI, not the FBI itself. It’s the corruption and the conspiracy (as the Strzok/Page texts show they were trying to do) against Trump.
Regardless, what matters most here is what the poll indicates as a whole. It indicates that people are far more aware of things than you might think. It indicates that, despite the Left’s best efforts to convince people that there’s no such thing as the Deep State, people aren’t just going to take the word of these people. Of course people in the government will say there’s no Deep State. THEY ARE THE DEEP STATE!
And of course the MSM will tell people there’s no Deep State. In a way, THEY ARE PART OF IT! They may not be unelected officials dictating legislation, but they are willing participants in the reporting of fake news stories that are entirely politically charged and aimed at undermining, delegitimizing and defeating Donald Trump.
Granted, the media makes no effort to hide these intentions, but regardless of what they have to say, most people in the country don’t believe the lies that there’s not some sort of shadow government in play here. Most people are able to recognize fake news when they see it, at least when it comes to trying to disregard the notion of a Deep State.
So many people are able to recognize it, in fact, that even a FIFTH of Democrats believe that there’s a Deep State. Again, that’s very significant. While a majority of Democrats are still either oblivious of it or they refuse to believe anything that sides with Trump, there are enough out there who see things for how they are and recognize the corruption within our own government.
Overall, I’m very happy to see these numbers from such a reliable pollster. Again, if you were to go by everything the MSM is reporting, you’d think the world is on fire and everyone is dying. Reality is far different from the garbage these propagandists spew.
“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Friends, as you're about to find out, this memo might really ruin the Deep State moving forward. Devin Nunes’ memo has been released upon authorization by President Trump and what it says is quite significant.
I’ve read it in its entirety and, yes, Nancy, I was able to understand it.
The memo focuses specifically on the FISA warrant against Carter Page, a former Trump volunteer advisor during his campaign and a U.S. citizen.
The memo begins by detailing the very purpose of its existence. “This memorandum provides Members an update on significant facts relating to the Committee’s (the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence) ongoing investigation into the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and their use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the 2016 presidential election cycle. Our findings, which are detailed below, 1) raise concerns with the legitimacy and legality of certain DOJ and FBI interactions with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), and 2) represent a troubling breakdown of legal processes established to protect the American people from abuses related to the FISA process.”
So already, we can see that we’re in for a treat in regards to this memo.
The memo then reads: “On October 21, 2016, DOJ and FBI sought and received a FISA probable cause order (not under Title VII) authorizing electronic surveillance on Carter Page from the FISC… The FBI and DOJ obtained one initial FISA warrant targeting Carter Page and three FISA renewals from the FISC. As required by statute… a FISA order on an American citizen must be renewed by the FISC every 90 days and each renewal requires a separate finding of probable cause. Then-Director James Comey signed three FISA applications in question on behalf of the FBI, and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe signed one. Then-DAG (Deputy Attorney General) Sally Yates, then-Acting DAG Dana Boente, and DAG Rod Rosenstein each signed one or more FISA applications on behalf of DOJ.”
This is important to know because these are some of the people that Democrats wanted their names redacted from this memo. It’s important to know just who it was that filed for the FISA applications as this could lead to trouble for the people involved.
But why would they be in trouble? Filing for a FISA application (or 4) is not against the law. True, but the FISC needs relevant and useful information to grant the application.
According to the memo: “… the FISC’s rigor in protecting the rights of Americans, which is reinforced by 90-day renewals of surveillance orders, is necessarily dependent on the government’s production to the court of all material and relevant facts. This should include information potentially favorable to the target of the FISA application that is known by the government. In the case of Carter Page, the government had at least four independent opportunities before the FISC to accurately provide an accounting of the relevant facts. However, our findings indicate that, as described below, material and relevant information was omitted.”
Imagine being a prosecutor, presenting the judge with information to send the suspect to jail and also being a defense attorney and forgoing presenting information that could keep the suspect out of jail. That’s essentially what the FBI did and the kind of power they wielded here. They are obligated with presenting information and facts that could hurt AND help the target of the application. But they chose to ignore the information that could help Page and only gave the FISC information against him.
And what did they present to the court? The Steele dossier.
Here’s what the investigation into the DOJ and FBI found:
“1) The ‘dossier’ compiled by Christopher Steele (Steele dossier) on behalf of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign formed an essential part of the Carter Page FISA application. Steele was a longtime FBI source who was paid over $160,000 by the DNC and Clinton campaign, via the law firm Perkins Coie and research firm Fusion GPS, to obtain derogatory information on Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.”
“a) Neither the initial application in October 2016, nor any of the renewals, disclose or reference the role of the DNC, Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials.”
“b) The initial FISA application notes Steele was working for a named U.S. person, but does not name Fusion GPS and principal Glenn Simpson, who was paid by a U.S. law firm (Perkins Coie) representing the DNC (even though it was known by DOJ at the time that political actors were involved with the Steele dossier). The application does not mention Steele was ultimately working on behalf of – and paid by – the DNC and Clinton campaign, or that the FBI had separately authorized payment to Steele for the same information.”
So you can already see the corruption taking place here. The FBI and DOJ sought and received a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page based largely on a fake dossier and they didn’t share with the FISC just who the author of the dossier was working with or even WHY he was working with them.
Had they done that, the court would’ve seen (though who knows if they would’ve cared) that the dossier has a shady background strictly tied to matters of politics. Comey and those involved in seeking the warrant and its renewals chose to omit this key information so that they would be more likely to attain the warrant.
That’s injustice if I’ve ever seen it.
The memo continues: “2) The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate (confirm) the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News. The Page FISA application incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News. Steele has admitted in British court filings that he met with Yahoo News – and several other outlets – in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington D.C. in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed.”
“a) Steele was suspended and then terminated as an FBI source for what the FBI defines as the most serious of violations – an unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI in an October 30, 2016, Mother Jones article by David Corn. Steele should have been terminated for his previous undisclosed contacts with Yahoo and other outlets in September – before the Page application was submitted to the FISC in October – but Steele improperly concealed from and lied to the FBI about those contacts.”
“b) Steele’s numerous encounters with the media violated the cardinal rule of source handling – maintaining confidentiality – and demonstrated that Steele had become a less than reliable source for the FBI.”
Ok, that’s a lot to sort through, so I’ll try my best to keep this short. You can see the level of corruption coming from Steele and the FBI. Steele very obviously leaked information he shouldn’t have to the media and even LIED to the FBI about his contact with the media. And, as you know, it’s illegal to lie to the FBI. But this raises the question. Why wasn’t Steele arrested for this? Why didn’t the FBI arrest him for lying to them and concealing information about his contact with the media? Why has he been walking free for the past YEAR?!
Because he wrote the dossier. His dossier was crucial to the launching of the investigation, as you’ll see later on from the memo. His credibility, at least with the public, would’ve been shattered and his dossier would’ve been discovered to be b.s. far sooner than it was.
This is getting to be a decently lengthy article and I apologize if it’s pretty long, but this is a rather important article. I’ve only gotten though half of the memo so far, with a decent bit still to come, so bear with me, please.
The memo then says: “3) Before and after Steele was terminated as a source, he maintained contact with DOJ via then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, a senior DOJ official who worked closely with Deputy Attorneys General Yates and later Rosenstein. Shortly after the election, the FBI began interviewing Ohr, documenting his communications with Steele. For example, in September 2016, Steele admitted to Ohr his feelings against then-candidate Trump when Steele said he ‘was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president.’ This clear evidence of Steele’s bias was recorded by Ohr at the time and subsequently in official FBI files – but not reflected in any of the Page FISA applications.”
“a) During this same time period, Ohr’s wife was employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump. Ohr later provided the FBI with all of his wife’s opposition research, paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign via Fusion GPS. The Ohrs’ relationship with Steele and Fusion GPS was inexplicably concealed from the FISC.”
This is one of the more clear-cut pieces of evidence of bias against Donald Trump. Steele literally admitted to Ohr that he was desperate that Trump wouldn’t get elected and was passionate about him not being president. The FBI, having interviewed Ohr, knew about Steele’s bias against Trump from Ohr himself, had it recorded in their files and omitted it from their FISA application.
The more and more we read this memo, the worse and worse the FBI and DOJ (specifically, the DAGs, Comey and McCabe) come across.
And it only gets worse.
“4) According to the head of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, Assistant Director Bill Priestap, corroboration of the Steele dossier was in its ‘infancy’ at the time of the initial Page FISA application. After Steele was terminated, a source validation report conducted by an independent unit within FBI assessed Steele’s reporting as only minimally corroborated.”
In other words, the dossier wasn’t even close to being confirmed by the time they used it as a reason to spy on Page. Of course, now we know it was entirely fake, but not at the time. At the time, the people who knew about it didn’t care that it was fake. They were going to use it regardless.
The point is that the biggest reason to get the FISA warrant hadn’t even been confirmed by the time they sought the warrant. They submitted it as a reason to spy on Page despite it not having been confirmed. It’s the equivalent of attaining a FISA warrant by presenting them with a dossier that said Obama was a robot. It doesn’t have to be truthful, just mildly believable.
The memo continues with: “Yet, in early January 2017, Director Comey briefed President-elect Trump on a summary of the Steele dossier, even though it was – according to his June 2017 testimony – ‘salacious and unverified’”. So he even briefed Trump on this garbage that he knew was unverified.
“While the FISA application relied on Steele’s past record of credible reporting on other unrelated matters, it ignored or concealed his anti-Trump financial and ideological motivations. Furthermore, Deputy Director McCabe testified before the Committee in December 2017 that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISC without the Steele dossier information.”
So McCabe even ADMITS that without the bogus dossier, they wouldn’t have sought the warrant. And yet, the Left time and time again claims that the dossier was not the basis for investigation into the Trump campaign. The Deputy Director HIMSELF tells us it was.
And finally, here’s the last thing in the memo:
“5) The Page FISA application also mentions information regarding fellow Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos, but there is no evidence of any cooperation or conspiracy between Page and Papadopolous. The Papadopolous information triggered the opening of an FBI counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016 by FBI agent Peter Strzok. Strzok was reassigned by the Special Counsel’s Office to FBI Human Resources for improper text messages with his mistress, FBI Attorney Lisa Page (no known relation to Carter Page), where they both demonstrated a clear bias against Trump and in favor of Clinton, whom Strzok has also investigated. The Strzok/Lisa Page texts also reflect extensive discussions about the investigation, orchestrating leaks to the media, and include a meeting with Deputy Director McCabe to discuss an ‘insurance’ policy against President Trump’s election.”
The stench of government corruption is so visible it has cartoonish stink lines coming off of it. This memo clearly depicts a highly corrupted FBI seeking a warrant to spy on an American citizen based largely on an unreliable source’s dossier and what that source improperly told the media in order to spy on a political opponent of Hillary Clinton.
I can’t say with a guarantee that this will lead to the arrests and prosecution of those involved in this act of government corruption, but if there’s any justice in this world, that’s precisely what this will result in.

If you’re an intelligent person you just know that this Donald Trump Jr ‘collusion’ narrative is nothing but an attempt to destabilize President Trump. Even those pushing the story know it’s a ‘nothing burger’, as Democrat commentator Van Jones put it.
Last week Fox News personality Charles Krauthammer got on board this ‘Russia collusion’ nothing burger narrative. He is, as you well know, a never-Trumper. His feelings must have been hurt when then candidate Trump repeatedly criticized him for his elitist bias. You may recall Krauthammer said he wouldn’t vote for Trump – and I’m sure he didn’t.
According to a Breitbart story, Krauthammer finds Junior GUILTY not for what he DID, but for what he had in MIND. I wonder what Mr. K has in mind right now - certainly nothing good. What's on anybody's mind is critical...to God. He knows what you're thinking, but in an American court of law, what's on your mind, if you don't act upon it, isn't a crime...And this, assuming you have something wicked in mind, which in Junior's case, he didn't. Exposing Hillary is hardly wicked - in fact, it's a civil duty.
Krauthammer is a psychologist – he knows nothing about the law. He doesn’t know what collusion is or how the law defines it as antitrust. He doesn’t know that nothing illegal took place during the meeting between Junior and the Russian lawyer, who by now we know she has more ties to the democrats and the phony dossier (of which Trump was the target) than to Trump.
Greg Jarrett, another Fox News personality and a real lawyer, said that even if Putin had been in that meeting with Donald Trump Jr NO LAW was broken. There’s no treason. There’s no collusion. Nothing.
But the media continues to push the story…
We can all understand why Democrats want to fuel the story. We can certainly understand why the never-Trumpers like Krauthammer, McCain and Graham want to fuel the story as well – after all, it was McCain who sent an aide of his to get the Russian Dossier that TARGETED Trump (rather than ‘colluded’ with Trump), which was ultimately proven false. Trump, if anything, is the TARGET of democrat/MSM/never-Trumpers collusion.
The never-Trumpers were never on board with Trump to begin with, so it’s understandable, to a certain extent, why they would love to see Trump thrown out of office.
Let me clarify – ‘understandable’ in a context where the elites have a sense of entitlement to decide who runs our country. It’s ‘understandable’ if you see America as a banana republic where a handful of very rich people rule. If you’re McCain and a big part of the ruling class, you won’t ever support a President who ran on draining the swamp. If you’re McCain you see America as YOUR banana republic.
But how about the media?
How come the rest of the media – after CNN’s Van Jones comment or its hysterical reaction to the video showing Trump beating up CNN and the THREAT to the minor who produced it – doesn’t go straight to CNN’s JUGULAR to WIN their audience for themselves? How come NBC, ABC, CBS and all the rest jump on board DEFENDING CNN rather than trying to destroy them as competitors do in any other industry? Ever wonder about this?
The reason is simple: the media is part of the ruling class. How dare you elect President Trump when they wanted Hillary?
But what I think is important to understand is this: all these players (the never-Trumpers, the democrats and the media) are not in the business of simply destabilizing Trump. They’re in the business of self-preservation and self-promotion. Trump is only the clear leader of a movement formed by people like you and me who are tired of this ruling class. Trump is the biggest problem for them, but he’s not the ultimate enemy.
Who’s the ruling class’ ultimate enemy?
That’s right. This cold war against Trump is ultimately a war against you and all of us, including the democrat base.
If you ever thought of the dichotomy between the Left and the Right or democrats and republicans, let me tell you this: This division is FALSE. It’s just a distraction to get you to vote for establishment democrats or establishment republicans.
The real dichotomy that we must absolutely see here is not left versus right, but rather the DEEP STATE versus THE REST OF US.
The next four years are going to be exactly like this: the ruling class destabilizing Trump while he continues growing jobs, giving impressive speeches like the Warsaw speech, securing our borders with travel bans, and generally speaking, doing what he was elected to do.
The problem is, this is only going to get worse. If the ruling class wins this cold war between them, the deep state, and the rest of us, this country will definitely turn into a banana republic. All we can do is keep fighting and shrinking the government. We must shrink the government and stop watching the MSM. They must go bankrupt for lack of advertising and viewers. We know ratings are crashing – let’s make sure they continue to crash.
But we must stay on the alert, as well. What we’re going through is exactly what our Founding Fathers feared the most – a secular America ruled by a supersized government where politicians grow rich and powerful without ever producing anything of market value.
We must fight – we must fight by sharing Trump’s accomplishments, by pointing out the MSM’s lies, by exposing the left’s evil intentions and by PRAYING.
'Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus'.

Fake News outlets were finally, and justly, barred from White House briefings – a move that was long overdue. If they’re going to make up stories regardless, what’s the point of having them there? We have a president who needs to speak directly to the people simply because CNN, ABC, CBS, The New York Times, etc. are in the business of LYING to you.
It was, after all, MSNBC’s host Mika Brzezinski who last week confessed ‘our job is to control exactly what people think’. That may be MSNBC’s vision for their organization, but then again they are, by definition, NOT a news organization – they’re activists. Leftist activists.
So we live in a world where the news is no longer news – it’s all indoctrination. If they want to control what you think, they’re in the business of indoctrinating you.
I could give you examples of when Obama privately met with his activist friends in the media:
We can point out the hypocrisy on the left, but quite frankly, that’s not even the point.
The point is the role of the media.
If you think your job is to indoctrinate people, you’re not a news organization.
Let’s be clear:
Six corporations control 90% of the media in America.
This gives them a huge amount of power that they’re using to indoctrinate you.
But not only that, these corporations are funded by people like George Soros, the Clintons and even Muslim countries, like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, who own large stakes in these companies.
The Saudi prince owns large stakes of Twitter, Fox News parent company News Corporation and Time Warner, the parent of CNN.
The media is a tool of the left to spread leftist propaganda. They’re truly a political organization designed to DECEIVE YOU.
It’s not even about money – it’s about power. It’s about their DESIRE to CONTROL YOU. It’s about their big EGOS. None of these owners need more money – it’s about their narcissistic desire to play GOD.
But you and I know there’s only ONE GOD. And to the extent that we’re well aware of these evil individuals’ intentions, we should be fine.
Remember, with God on our side, who could be against us?
Friend – the media, which is controlled by Soros, Saudi Arabia and the Clintons, is at war with YOU. It’s left the news business a long time ago and entered the indoctrination business just so they can feel good about their ever growing power.
Here's an example: remember when Oprah rammed Obama down our throats and helped him get elected? Obama played her like the manipulative master that he is.
What happened with her after he was elected?
She felt PROUD of what she thought was her accomplishment – after all, Oprah did play a big part in getting Obama elected.
But what happened TO her after Obama was inaugurated? She was hoping for a place in Obama’s White house, but what did he do?
Obama brushed her off like the piece of trash he thinks she is. Her job was done and she was not going to have a place in Obama’s WH.
It was all downhill from there for her.
Nevertheless, she showed us she had the POWER to put Obama in office. She has a big ego and she showed you she was a big deal...at least until Obama crushed her.
My point is: evil people like Soros, the Clintons, the prince of Saudi Arabia are in the business of inflating their egos. I wish I could tell you there is a more pragmatic reason for their desire to indoctrinate us – like money. But no. It’s way more basic than that. Like I said, these people have a lot of money and money is no longer a motivation. It’s POWER. It’s their EGOS. It’s…SAD.
But in the process, they’re making YOUR LIFE miserable – you’re expendable but that’s OK by them. However, you know better.
…And those He predestined He also called, those He called He also justified, those He justified He also glorified. What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things?…

‘Go nuclear’ is what Donald Trump told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the confirmation of his Supreme Court pick Neil M Gorsuch.
As you probably know, to ‘go nuclear’ means to use a simple majority versus the 60 votes needed to stop a Democratic filibuster. Senate Democrats pulled the nuclear option to confirm Obama’s Judicial and executive branch nominations multiple times. Democrats invented this process. God works in mysterious ways – He allowed Democrats to have the power to implement the ‘nuclear’ option, and now He’s using it against them…
But what do REPUBLICANS think about using this option specifically for the Supreme Court nomination?
You may know that McConnell has said he’s not quite ready to use it as he’d much rather have democrats be a part of the process.
Perhaps McConnel is living in some sort of fantasy land, or perhaps he didn't get the memo that the people have voted and Trump has made a fantastic pick to replace the late Antonin Scalia.
RINOs for the most part have either very little inclination to fight to win, or they have little intelligence to interpret voters’ preferences.
Either way, Trump’s worst nightmare is not Democrats in congress, it’s certainly not Democrats in Hollywood or even in the Media – we all expect the worst from these people anyway.
Trump’s worst enemy is the Republican Establishment.
Not to say that they’re worse than Democrats – they’re probably as bad as democrats in Congress. But you see, Trumps ability to deliver on his agenda is dependent upon the Republican majority. To the extent that Republicans unite behind Trump, they’ll have a chance to prove to the people of the United States that Republican policies work and, consequently, they will continue expanding their power – crushing the democrat party once and for all.
They should seriously consider what they’re about to do, because they have a wonderful opportunity to bury the evil, KKK founder, segregation creator Democrat party. The Democrat Party should disappear as a political alternative. They should be on their way to extinction - they probably are after the massive loss last November. And Republicans now have a wonderful opportunity to show, with RESULTS, what prosperity and freedom are truly about.
To the extent that the Republican Establishment understands how much they can WIN in terms of votes, power just by doing THE RIGHT THING, things should look bright for them AND for us in the future.
But Trump has his Judas in the Republican Establishment. It’s where the ‘never-trumpers’ came from. Much like Judas, who sold his soul for a few golden coins for short-term, immediate satisfaction, they may be stupid enough to consider selling their souls for a bunch of political positions after Trump – another short-term immediate satisfaction and egocentric alternative.
Much like Judas, if this is the direction they choose to go, the end result is going to be suicide – political suicide in this case. Judas ended up hanging himself. The Republican Establishment would eventually disappear.
From a political perspective, if the Republican Establishment betrays Trump, all Trump needs to SHOW (and he has the intelligence and the means to prove it) is that the only reason our lives are not better is BECAUSE of the establishment. He has enough backing to form his OWN base – in fact, we, Trump supporters, have been against the Republican Establishment for a long time. All we needed was a LEADER. Now we have one.
Republicans are not in the White House because they’re republicans. They’re in the White House because of TRUMP.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m not saying the democrat base isn’t applauding the obstructionism coming from democrat leaders in Congress. After all, the democrat base is formed mostly of transgenders, transvestites, baby killers, sodomites, sharia law supporters and generally speaking evil people who LOVE their sins. And which one is the ONLY party that LEGITIMIZES their sins via transgender bathrooms and all sorts of ridiculous policies? The Democrat Party, of course.
But if the Republican Establishment CHOOSES to side with the basket of EVIL that’s the Democrat Party, they’ll suffer the consequences.
You see, most people are NORMAL.
If the republican establishment chooses to side with the worst of our society, it’s a sure way to self-destruction. It might take us, NORMAL people, longer to rebuild a righteous America, but we’ll make it happen. With God on our side, I cannot imagine how we can fail.
So do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
