DAILY BIBLE VERSE
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Here's who REALLY led a coup attempt, and how they did it
This subpoena was clearly a fishing expedition. “If Dr. Ward’s telephone and text message records are disclosed, congressional investigators are going to contact every person who communicated with her during and immediately after the tumult of the 2020 election,” Ward’s lawyers wrote. “That is not speculation, it is a certainty.”
Of course, the Kommittee has also subpoenaed President Trump, but after he said he'd LOVE to testify on live TV, co-chair Liz Cheney says they won’t allow that. After all, they wouldn’t want their Kommittee to be turned into a “circus,” she said. Too late for that! What they envision doing, of course, is taking the former President into a secure room, turning on their own cameras, lecturing him about “our democracy,” making accusatory speeches, and asking questions like “How long have you conspired with Vladimir Putin to declare yourself dictator?” Then they would edit the video to their hearts’ content and present it as “evidence.”
In their fevered dreams. That will not be happening.
The latest revelation is that they initiated their plan early on to hide Danchenko as a “confidential human source” (CHS), out of reach of investigations that would come along later. They did this to cover their bases even before they had interviewed Danchenko. So when Danchenko admitted the material he’d passed to Steele was just “bar talk” and stories told “in jest,” they didn’t have to tell anybody. And they didn’t.
The information is in a “premium” story at THE EPOCH TIMES, so here’s the link if you’re a subscriber. (Warning: it will make you very angry.) We sort it out and summarize below.
The particular email that gives this away was buried in hundreds of unused exhibits and brought to light by an internet sleuth called “Walkafyre.” Only the subject line was made public, but that was enough.
As Carlson and Mahnke report, “The revelation...indicates that that FBI deliberately targeted 2016 presidential candidate and later President Donald Trump with claims it already knew at the time to be false.”
Their timeline of the period between the November 8, 2016, presidential election and the appointment of Mueller on May 17, 2017, “reveals that the FBI --- with the help of the Obama administration and Washington establishment figures --- executed a concerted campaign to oust a sitting President.”
FBI agent Kevin Helson sent this email to unknown (redacted) recipients on January 12, 2017. The subject line reads “Plan to convert Danchenko into CHS.” Having already learned that Steele couldn’t provide evidence for his dossier even with a $1 million incentive, they were protecting Danchenko even in advance of his interview with them, which didn’t take place till late January. As a CHS, Danchenko was shielded from any external investigations, including those of Congress. Until now, the assumption had been that Danchenko wasn’t made a CHS until later, after he was interviewed (which was bad enough).
If they’d thought the dossier was real, they would not have hidden Danchenko from investigators. On the contrary, they would have touted him endlessly as proof of Russian “collusion.”
November 8: Trump is elected, despite the FBI’s efforts to, in Peter Strzok’s words, “stop it.”
November 9: Strzok and Page exchange cryptic texts about a meeting of their “secret society” to discuss something “election related.”
November 10: Strzok texts Page, saying, “Bill [Priestap, head of FBI counterintelligence] just sent a two hour invite to talk strategy.”
Early December: The CIA tells congressional leaders that “Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency.” So now CIA Director John Brennan is involved, more than just behind the scenes.
December 9: After the congressional briefing, Obama signs an order directing the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency (NSA) to draft an intelligence community assessment (ICA) on Russian interference in the election. Both the CIA and FBI had already had this in the works, with the FBI working to get the “dossier” into the ICA, to make it official, even though they already knew it was fake. (Note: they never inform Congress, the courts or Trump officials of the $1 million offer to Steele and his inability to provide evidence.)
December 16: Andrew McCabe personally pushes his agents to include the dossier in the ICA. When asked if it should include not just information regarding Russian interference but also allegations against candidate Trump, McCabe says to YES, include the Trump allegations, “due to concerns over possible Russian attempts to blackmail Trump.” So now Trump is personally targeted.
December 20: The FBI identifies Danchenko as the primary source for the dossier.
December 28: Director Comey makes a push to the CIA and NSA for the dossier to be included in the ICA. Comey characterizes Steele as a “credible person with a source and sub-source network in position to report on such things.” (Comey knows Steele can't verify any of it.) They agree to include a two-page summary of the dossier, thereby legitimizing it.
January 3: Outgoing AG Loretta Lynch implements new executive order greatly expanding the intel agencies’ ability to share information.
January 5: During a White House intelligence briefing on the intel assessment, Obama expresses his desire that information be withheld from the incoming Trump administration. (That’s the infamous meeting in which Comey stays behind to brief Obama on the dossier.)
January 6: Now the top intel officials brief Trump and his national security team on the salacious stories from the dossier. Reportedly, newly appointed Trump national security adviser Mike Flynn asks about Steele’s sub-sources. (Uh-oh. It’s likely this is the moment they seriously targeted Flynn.) Hours later, the briefing is leaked to the media.
(Trump, frustrated by so many leaks, had conducted a “sting” to find out who was leaking. He didn’t tell his staff about his January 6 briefing at all, so when news of it leaked, he knew it was the intel people.)
January 10: Comey testifies before Senate Intel Committee, stating that he can neither confirm nor deny an active investigation of Trump. The media go wild. The dossier is released by BUZZFEED.
January 11: The Senate Intel Committee opens its own, very politically driven investigation into Russian interference. Trump gives a press conference naming the intel community as the leakers. This says so much about Trump's presence of mind…
January 12: Agent Helson sends his email about signing up Danchenko as a CHS. Also, IG Michael Horowitz announces he’ll review the actions of the FBI in the lead-up to the 2016 election. This ties up any outside probes into the FBI’s actions for two years. Also, Mike Flynn’s call with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak is leaked to the WASHINGTON POST, which reports it as an attempt to undermine Obama’s sanctions against Russia. (The object is to get Flynn out.)
Also on January 12: The first renewal of the Carter Page warrant is approved. The FBI knows the dossier is bunk but has not informed the FISA court.
January 19: Obama’s top intel and law enforcement deputies meet to talk about Flynn’s call.
January 22: Flynn is sworn in as Trump’s national security advisor.
January 24: Comey sends “a couple of guys over” (Strzok and Pientka), as he later brags, to do the ambush interview on the unsuspecting Flynn.
End of January: Over a three-day period, Danchenko is finally interviewed and tells the FBI he never intended his wild rumors and bar talk to be included in Steele’s dossier. Again, because he was being made a CHS, this information would be shielded from investigators.
February 13: Flynn resigns. (In 2020, it’s revealed through detailed transcripts that Flynn never discussed sanctions with Kislyak.)
February 27: President George W. Bush says “we all need answers” on alleged Russia “collusion.”
March 2: New AG Jeff Sessions totally recuses himself from "Russia," without even looking into whether the inquiry is legitimate.
March 4: Trump tweets that he knows the Obama administration has been spying on his campaign.
March 6: The FBI reacts by sending McCabe, Strzok and Priestap to brief the DOJ on their Trump investigation. They mention no issues with the dossier and instead lie that it is their fully checked-out “Crown reporting.”
March 8: Comey briefs the congressional “Gang Of Eight,” who aren’t told about any issues with the dossier, either.
March 20: Comey announces that the Trump campaign is being investigated for Russian collusion.
March 21: House Intel Committee chair Devin Nunes meets with a source, then informs President Trump he believes Trump and his staff were illegally surveilled and “unmasked.” Nunes demands the FBI, CIA and NSA reveal details of this.
April 6: Following an ethics investigation being opened against him, Nunes is forced to recuse himself from the Russia collusion investigation.
April 7: The warrant to spy on Carter Page is renewed again.
May 9: Trump fires Comey; McCabe becomes acting director. Steele has a phone call with Bruce Ohr at the DOJ, expressing concern that “they will be exposed” with Comey’s firing.
May 12: Steele and Ohr exchange texts, with Ohr conveying a request from McCabe that Steele be reengaged.
May 16: Comey leaks memos to THE NEW YORK TIMES through a Columbia Law School friend. (Comey later acknowledges he did this to spark the appointment of a special counsel.)
May 17: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appoints Robert Mueller special counsel, with dossier source/fabricator Danchenko still safely hidden by the FBI.
People are still talking about Tuesday’s extremely discomfiting debate performance by Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman, which exposed the fact that he is clearly not recovered enough from his recent stroke to serve in the Senate. While I pray he’ll make a full recovery, it can’t help that he’s being manipulated by those around him to continue a high-pressure campaign for a high-pressure job when he should be resting and getting therapy.
One concerned neurologist who watched the debate told Fox News that most recovery in cases like his happens in the first three months, and it’s been six months, so she fears this may be about as good as it gets. Another doctor said there’s about a 23% chance of having another stroke in the year after the first one, and this can’t be helping reduce those odds.
I was glad to see a few others in the media picking up on the argument I made yesterday that this wasn’t a debate, it was an expose of the biggest and cruelest attempt at vote fraud in history. Incredibly, many Democrats aren’t upset over the disregard for Fettermans’ health or the attempt to hide his incapacity from voters. They’re frantically spinning this story like a plate-spinner on the Ed Sullivan Show to keep the campaign going. I’ve heard every excuse from “He exceeded expectations” to “He was so brave to do that knowing his condition” to “Dr. Oz bullied him.”
For the record: I think Dr. Oz deserves praise for his kindness in pulling his punches. I always warn people thinking of getting into politics that it’s a full-contact sport, and you shouldn’t enter it if you can’t stand the sight of your own blood. Many politicians would’ve gone in for the kill, but as a highly-experienced physician, Dr. Oz understood what he was dealing with and treaded very lightly. All things considered, Fetterman’s people should be grateful that there was a doctor standing by just 10 feet away.
But worst of all are the Democrats who have no sympathy for Fetterman or outrage over the attempt to hoodwink the voters. They’re just furious that his handlers agreed to the debate instead of hiding his cognitive problems until after the election, like…well, someone else I could name. They claim it doesn’t matter how impaired he is, all he has to be able to do is cast votes for the Democrats’ agenda. Jeff Goldstein at Substack has a must-read article about this attitude, which has unfortunately become widespread in today’s politics, that having a party rubber stamp who can't think independently is a positive thing.
For these people, all that matters is getting that 51st vote to ram their radical left agenda down America’s throat. They’re so obsessed with nothing but party power that Fetterman reportedly raked in $2 million in donations after the debate from people who want to see him keep campaigning and get into the Senate (although some might have mistaken the debate for a telethon.) They don’t see Senators as representatives of the people of their states, just as representatives of the national Democratic Party, which is a perversion of the Constitution.
The Founders gave us the House to represent the wider population, and the Senate to represent the interests of the states. The Senate was created to act as a block on “the tyranny of the majority.” Each state has two Senators, regardless of size or population, so that the people of, say, Wyoming, can’t be forced to accept the crazy ideas of more populous states, like giving power to Gavin Newsom. Each state has an equal voice to represent its interests, the ultimate in “fairness.” Democrats claim to like fairness until it stands between them and power.
They want Fetterman elected because they know he will not represent the interests of Pennsylvanians. He’ll vote however Chuck Schumer tells him to, and advance the interests of the Democratic Party. It’s ironic that one of Fettermans’ main knocks on Dr. Oz is that he’s not really from Pennsylvania, when Fetterman’s own supporters admit they want him to move to Washington and vote the way the Senator from New York tells him to.
Ironically, the one issue this debate made the case for without it even being mentioned is the repeal of the 17th amendment that allowed for direct election of Senators. Before that, they were appointed by the state legislatures to make sure they represented the interests of their states, not those of their party or their own political careers in Washington.
A big congratulations to high school football coach Joe Kennedy, who went to court to defend religious freedom when Bremerton High School in Washington State fired him in 2015 for praying after games on the 50-yard line. After finally winning his case in the Supreme Court, it was announced that an agreement has been reached to reinstate him to his job.
This is great news both for him and the student athletes he mentors. If you’d like to know more about this story, Joe was my guest on “Huckabee” in the spring. You can see that interview here:
Georgia Senate race update
Another woman has surfaced, accusing Republican Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker of paying for her to have an abortion many years ago. Like the first accuser, this one is anonymous and has no actual evidence, only this one is represented by Gloria Allred, for what that’s worth. Walker calls it a lie. And considering the latest accuser claims that coming forward (sort of) less than two weeks before the election is NOT politically-motivated, I have serious doubts about her sincerity.
Karen Townsend at HotAir.com has a very good report on this story and why it’s not likely to be the damaging “October Surprise” the left must hope it will be.
Part of that is due to a fundamental lack of understanding of how conservatives and Christians view people. They think we’re narrow-minded and judgmental, so if they can just tar a Republican as a sinner, we’ll abandon him. They don’t get that we believe in a faith that’s based on forgiveness and redemption. So far, they’ve shown no evidence that these accusations are true, but even if they are, we understand that people can repent and change from what they were in the distant past.
What we do know is that Herschel Walker today is pro-life. Why would we abandon him over an unproven allegation of a past sin, when the alternative is a candidate who has already voted in lockstep with the Democrats for unrestricted abortion through the ninth month of pregnancy at taxpayer expense? They must truly believe that we’re as stupid as they think we are.
Besides, why are they trying to paint Herschel Walker as morally unfit for the Senate by alleging that he once paid for an abortion? I thought we were supposed to celebrate abortion. Have you noticed how often Democrats try to harm a Republican’s political career by accusing him or her of something that they claim to support wholeheartedly, from having an abortion to being gay? Why, it’s almost as if their ethics were…situational.
Majority believe the transgender movement has gone too far
A new poll of voters by Summit Ministries and McLaughlin & Associates found that 65% believe the transgender movement has gone too far in pushing drugs and surgery on minors. Only 21% do not. And 57% believe the medical industry is motivated by profits in pushing these procedures, with only 24% believing they actually want to help children. Also, only 27% think children are transitioning because they feel free to question their gender, while 59% think they’re being influenced by outside forces.
Even more interesting was the demographic breakdown. Those who think the trans movement has gone too far include 56% of Hispanics, 48% of African-Americans, and even 44% of Biden voters (only 34% of Biden voters think it hasn’t gone far enough.) I’d call that “being on the wrong side of history.” These Democrat politicians had better get over their obsession with state-sanctioned surgical child abuse before the voters transition them to the private sector and they have to get real jobs for the first time in their lives.
