WHAT NEXT? FBI OFFERED STEELE MONEY TO SPY ON FLYNN
On the day John Ratcliffe was finally approved as Director of National Intelligence –- by a completely partisan vote –- the Michael Flynn story got even crazier.
First --- and this has received no press till now --- British ex-spy Christopher Steele, author of the fictional anti-Trump “dossier” paid for by Hillary’s campaign and the DNC, was offered money by the FBI to collect intelligence on Flynn. (Who needs Fusion GPS to pay a spy when you have the Federal Bureau of Intrusion to do it?) This happened in a meeting on October 3, 2016, in “an unnamed European city,” according to Chuck Ross at the DAILY CALLER. In addition to “significant” compensation for his spying, Steele was paid $15,000 in expenses for his trip to this city. Nice work if you can get it, especially if your "intelligence” is garbage.
That’s right, Steele was getting paid by EVERYONE. I wish I knew his secret.
This new information seems significant in light of a fake story that was being peddled about an affair between Flynn and a Russian woman. This rumor was completely unfounded, and, as described in Lee Smith’s great book THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT, was originally set up at an event near Cambridge University much earlier, in 2014. Obama and his team had had it in for Flynn from the start, mostly due to his intense disapproval of Obama’s Iran nuclear deal and also his intention to audit and streamline the intel bureaucracy. For one thing, Flynn was planning to audit the Office of Net Assessment, which was paying “confidential human source” (SPY) Stefan Halper to do...well, whatever it was they were really paying him to do.
Ross reports, “It is not clear how and when Steele came across the rumor, or if it was the result of the FBI asking him to look into Flynn.” But actually, we do know this rumor predates Steele’s October 3 meeting. It had already been planted and was ripe for the picking.
WORSE THAN WATERGATE
John Leonard at The American Thinker makes the case that Obamagate is worse than Watergate and must result in criminal prosecutions, as Watergate did -- and he uses Joe Biden’s own words to explain why Barack Obama should not be immune.
I’m reminded of how, before the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton feigned outrage at the thought of someone not accepting the results of a Presidential election. She thought she was condemning Trump for possibly refusing to accept losing to her. Her words seem bitterly ironic, now that we know that the entire tangled web of lies and sabotage aimed at thwarting the will of the voters by destroying Trump’s presidency can be traced back to her refusal to accept losing to Trump and her campaign’s collusion with Russians to buy concocted dirt that poisoned both public opinion and the federal justice system.
By the same token, Joe Biden thought that when he declared to an MSNBC interviewer that he would “commit to the ideal that no one is above the law,” he thought he was saying that he would never give Trump a pardon for his imaginary “crimes” just because he used to be President. Instead, he nuked the entire argument against letting his former boss, ex-President Obama, off the hook for any Obamagate illegalities. This may eventually go down as the Joe Biden Gaffe for the Ages.
That’s one of the problems with situational ethics: when the situation changes, they can bite you in the rump.
President Trump said Michigan’s Secretary of State was illegally sending mail-in ballots to every voter, but she says they were only sent applications for mail-in ballots, and argues that that’s not illegal because it isn’t partisan, since they went to everyone.
Duly noted, although inviting over 7 million people to apply for mail-in ballots still opens the door for enough mail-in ballots to be sent out to tip an election with fraud. And here’s the latest of a likely never-ending series of responses to the Democrats’ claim that vote fraud doesn’t exist, and that opposing mail-in voting just means you want to suppress turnout in traditional Democratic districts (like cemeteries.)
Remember, Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats are demanding that we institute mail-in voting nationwide if unemployed workers and dying businesses are ever to get any more coronavirus aid. Maybe we should let her know what we think about that by writing it in letters and mailing them to her and hoping they all arrive.
SEMPER FI MAX!
Here’s a great story about how even the coronavirus can’t defeat a US Marine. Retired Marine Max Deweese was admitted to St. Luke’s South Hospital in Kansas on April 10th, and left on May 7th after fighting off the disease. Family, friends, health care workers and fellow Marines lined the streets to cheer his recovery. He said, “I’m a warrior, not a worrier, and I try not to worry about things.”
Here’s how much of a warrior Max is: he earned two Purple Hearts while fighting in Japan in World War II. Max is 99 years old. Semper Fi!
Only President Trump could be such a mindless, angry Neanderthal to want to defund the Worth Health Organization over its China-appeasing dealings with the coronavirus!
Reality: Italy, which suffered tremendous COVID-19 death rates because of unfettered travel of people in the fashion industry from China, not only agrees with Trump, they’ve sent a petition with 200,000 signatures to the leaders of the other G20 nations, calling on them to join Trump in defunding the WTO.
