Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Fear of shootings and other violence is growing across America because of dangerous political rhetoric.  I’m talking, of course, about the threats of  violence against immigration officers from crazed leftists who are saying things such as “we know where you sleep at night,” where you go to church and “where your children live.” 

For those who have a hard time recognizing it, that’s genuine hateful, violent, threatening political rhetoric.  It seems to me that one reason we have law enforcement is so that they can find out where these people sleep at night and pay a visit to see if they’d like to relocate their sleeping quarters to a prison cell for making terroristic threats against federal officers.

--------------------------------------

Many observers have noted that for all the talking they do and all the media attention they get, the four members of the leftist “squad” of freshmen House Representatives don’t seem to be spending much – if any – time representing their districts.  They all seem more interested in remaking America or doing away with Israel than, say, creating more jobs back in the Bronx (AOC even bragged about chasing away thousands of Amazon.com jobs from her home district.)

It makes one wonder just whom they’re supposed to be “representing”?  I know you could never, ever “follow the money” to trace the motivations of socialists, but if you could, this story might raise some suspicions.

Also note this interesting factoid: the top eight House members who get the largest percentage of donations from outside their districts were all Democrats, including three of the four “squad” members.  Texas Democrat Rep. Sylvia Garcia was the only member whose FEC-recorded campaign donations all came from outside her district.  Meanwhile, “on the whole, freshman Republicans took in more money from their own districts than freshman Democrats.”

So if you wonder why some Congress members don’t seem to care what the folks back home think about an issue, maybe it’s because that’s not who they’re working for. 

--------------------------------

We now have a much clearer idea of what Nellie Ohr, while working under contract as a Hillary Clinton campaign operative, was doing for both Fusion GPS and the Obama Justice Department.

Judicial Watch has finally obtained 330 pages of documents in which Bruce Ohr –- then fourth in command at the Justice Department, though not part of the “Russia” team –- discusses anti-Trump information obtained through his wife Nellie Ohr, a Russian specialist who reportedly speaks fluent Russian. One of these is a spreadsheet that tries to show “alleged linkages” between Donald Trump and members of his family to about 80 criminal figures, many of whom were Russians. “It’s like an insane version of ‘Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,’” Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch said to Mark Steyn on Wednesday’s TUCKER CARLSON. “If you saw it on a wall somewhere...you’d say, ‘Who’s the crazy person who created this?’”

It seems incredible, doesn’t it? This is the dregs of “oppo” research garbage --- yet it ended up at the FBI.

According to Judicial Watch, these alleged contacts include a Russian involved in a “gangland killing,” an Uzbek mafia don, a former KGB official suspected in the murder of Paul Tatum, a Russian who “buys up banks and pumps them dry,” a Russian money launderer for Sergei Magnitsky, a Turk accused of shipping oil for ISIS (I am not kidding), a couple who lent their names to Trump University to promote “get-rich-quick” schemes, a man who poured him a drink (?), and others. Bruce Ohr emailed himself this spreadsheet on December 5, 2016, which it should be noted was after the election but while the “Trump/Russia” conspiracy theory was being pushed.

On the same day, Bruce Ohr also emailed himself a document called “Manafort Chronology,” also by Nellie Ohr for Fusion GPS (and Hillary), which detailed Paul Manafort’s interactions with Russians and other officials.

And, yes, we know that Bruce Ohr passed all this information, WHICH HAD BEEN CREATED FOR THE HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN AND THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE, to the FBI. We know because last week, Judicial Watch received the reports from FBI debriefings of Bruce Ohr on December 5 (the day chronicled above), 12 and 20 of 2016. Judicial Watch also has text messages from Nellie Ohr to Bruce Ohr that she’d sent to her “colleagues”; these colorfully refer to the Steele dossier as the “yellow rain dossier” and the “yellow showers dossier.”

Thanks to Judicial Watch, we also know that the “Fusion GPS” header was stripped of the information given to Ohr by his wife.

We already knew that Kathleen Kavalec, then-deputy Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs (how does that even fit on a business card?), had, in October of 2016, found serious problems with British ex-spy and Fusion GPS contractor Christopher Steele’s credibility and had informed the FBI about that. Now we know that in spite of those doubts, four months later, in February of 2017, Kavalec forwarded Bruce Ohr a Huffington Post article touting one claim in the Steele dossier, involving an alleged deal between Russian oil company Rosneft and Trump supporter Steve Schwarzman, as a “high crime of treason worthy of impeachment.” That same day, Ohr forwarded Kavalec’s communication to the FBI’s Washington Field Office. I’m sure they were giddy.

As early as May 23, 2016, DOJ prosecutors were emailing Bruce Ohr to see if he would connect them with his wife Nellie, as she could be a “great resource” for them. (No kidding.) Ohr writes back, “I’m sure Nellie would be delighted to speak with them. I’m pretty sure there is no conflict of interest SINCE THEY AREN’T PAYING HER OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.” (Emphasis mine.) Nellie Ohr has since told Congress that she had no role in DOJ investigations; that seems very misleading to me if not an outright lie. Define “no role.”

We’ve also learned that in January of 2018 when Bruce Ohr was preparing for his testimony before the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, he wrote to a lawyer about “possible ethics concerns.” (Hahahahahaha.) He forwarded this letter to his wife.

Of course, we already knew that after Steele was terminated as a source by the FBI, Bruce Ohr remained in regular contact with him. The FBI debriefed him a dozen times after the meetings they had. We also knew that Nellie Ohr had emailed her husband to tell him she was deleting emails sent to her from his DOJ email account.

One other tidbit; make of it what you will: Judicial Watch has learned that during the “Trump/Russia” probe, Bruce Ohr received a total of $42,520 in “performance bonuses.” In November of 2015, he received $14, 520; in November of 2016, that amount nearly doubled to $28,000.

Tom Fitton sums it up well: “These documents show a crazed DOJ-FBI effort to use the Clinton spy ring at Fusion GPS, namely Nellie Ohr, to smear President Trump --- even before he was sworn in as President. Clinton campaign operative Nellie Ohr may as well have had a desk at the Justice Department.”

One other thing, and I hope that if you need blood pressure meds, you’ve already taken them for today. According to FOX News’ Catherine Herridge, former members of the Mueller team are having an easy time obtaining “cushy jobs” with prominent law firms and universities.

They’re also landing major book deals.  The notoriously shady Andrew Weissmann has already announced a deal with Random House; it’s not known how much his book will have to do with the “Russia” probe. Maybe it's a "how-to" book on how to railroad innocent people. Weissmann has returned to academia as well, as a distinguished senior fellow with the Center on the Administration of Criminal Law (CACL), where he previously worked. I wonder if they have any classes on hiding exculpatory evidence that he can teach.

These people put in two years of their time with the special counsel and still didn’t come up with anything to pin on President Trump, but they must have known their efforts to do that wouldn’t go unrecognized. Sickening, I know. But they better save their money, as some of them will likely end up needing high-priced lawyers of their own.

According to the FOX News report, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page haven’t landed anywhere yet. Really, would you hire these two?

    Yes these local terrorist that threatening our law makers and their families should go to jail. These are terrorist threats and should be treated as such. If a republican did that they would be in jail and rightfully so. But republicans have common sense, something the democrats lost a long time ago somewhere along the way.

    Just a quick note to recommend an update to our current use of the word "factoid" ( para 5 ).

    Apparently, it is yet another word that has been misunderstood and misused so often that our latest generations are changing the meaning of the word so that it will now be used to also indicate something that is false, not just a little known fact or something that is likely a fact.

    The United States Government and Republicans and Democrats should not have been allowed to take in and accept foreign senators and their ideas etc into our standards that America has lived by and prospered . Now the Democrats and these foreign people want to promote their communist and Socialist ideas to America. The Democrats have lost all common sense .

    God willing, they ALL will be in GITMO for a very long time. Weismann should be hanged just on GPs for who he is. God will take care of it I'm sure.

    Why is it possible that these people are not prosecuted for what they attempted to do ? Why is the break in of the Democrat hdqrt. for Watergate any different then what these people tried to do to defeat Pres Trump? HOW?

    Why doesn’t any of our elected officials stand up for all law enforcement “so that they can find out where these people sleep at night and pay a visit to see if they’d like to relocate their sleeping quarters to a prison cell for making terroristic threats against federal officers.???”

    Let.s just face it most of the former Obama Crime Organization the members in the House and Senate that are on the left operate at the same level as Jeff Epstein. These people are just horrible Human beings. Who's life have they made better other than their selves? These people took an oath to protect and serve the citizens of the United States what did they do they allowed a sex trafficker to sell child sex to do bussiness without trying to stop him they are trying to take our President to Impeachment They are just clones of Jeff Epstein Miserable Federal and State run mob.

    This is all we hear; we’ve obtained documents indicating wrong doing or criminal activity. Tired of this running around announcing we have the evidence But nothing happens or no one is ever arrested or charged WHY???!

    So much wrong on so many counts. A good number of people should be in jail. Well, Russia, Russia, Russia seems to have fizzled out--what can we move on to next? Or, more accurately, who can we harass next? Who dodged the long arm of mueller and team?

    Just out of curiosity--did our tax dollars, in addition to millions for the kangaroo court, happen to be the bank account for ohr's bonuses? And, of course, there were many manhours put in by those in the FBI and DOJ which were dedicated to stopping Donald Trump--and our tax dollars paid for all that, too. I think the organizers and "brains" behind all this should have to pay restitution to the American tax payers.

    And, the on-going saga of gun control. I'm very disappointed in President Trump about the red flag thing. WHO is going to decide on red flags? How specific are those going to be--to prevent heavy handed people deciding--RED FLAG!!! RED FLAG!!! Where no red flag is. If this can't be done better than the VA red flag fiasco, it would be better to not do it at all. Just like with hate speech--exactly WHO gets to decide what is hate speech? Because that sure as heck is ruled by the extreme leftist/socialists.

    The media has found her another way to get the President. They stoke the recession fears as they know if the economy goes South, .T is toast. It Hades with employment, salary increases, people getting off of welfare and having a chance to live better. The DNC could care less about the success of minorities, the health of people, unborn nearly full term babies, the drug crisis, sex trade using young children, allowing terrorists into the country. It is true that most of the people trying to get into the country are decent people just wanting a better way of life, but even if a few gang members, drugs, children destined for prostitution, terrorists, that is too many.

    Do you honestly think that those who participated with our favorite pediphile or the Ohrs of the world will actually face prosecution? I fear not as they never seem to do so. Look at the Clintons, lying under oath is okay, destroying evidence is fine, giving away State secrets and not protecting our consulate are all just fine. Libs think making huge salaries is immoral, but taking ridiculous speaking fees is just fine. You can bet your bippy that some pretty famous people knew about the pedophilia just uncovered and that many got those back rubs.

    Hi Mike,
    Until a few days ago, I had never heard of the "incel movement". That's involuntary celibate. Young men who feel entitled to sex, but aren't getting it. I'm assuming porn has a lot to do with it. They become violent. Why isn't someone investigating this? Incels antisocial, violent and missosginistic. I keep asking, why isn't this being investigated?

    Thanks,
    Margot Plummer

    Dear Governor,
    This morning, you said that you hoped Omar and Tahlib would be able to visit Israel.....well...that would be nice....but....not very prudent for Israel in the world of today.
    In addition, I question a couple of things.....(1) Exactly who is paying for these "junkets"? The American taxoayers? And....(2) If Omar and Tahlib wanted to go to Israel so much, why did they not accompany the Democrat delegation that visited LAST week?
    Call me "suspicious", but it seems to me that this separate visit by these two "Congresswomen" (in quotes...because they have accomplished exactky zero for their constituents).....had an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PURPOSE.
    And (3) just imagine the resources it would have taken to protect them, keep them under constant surviellance (and they would NEED to be)....and prevent them from causing some type of issue designed to put Israel in a bad light. The press would have followed them like lemmings....just HOPING for an event that would put both America and Israel in a bad light.....and caused a world event of some type that would end up...(if not in controversy or violence)...at the very least as another of the many anti-Israeli resolutions at the United Nations.
    Bottom line is....I think there was a totally different reason (other than learning about Israel) for those two wanting to go on a visit to Israel apart from the Congressional visit last week.

    I took my blood pressure bills this morning, glad I did! Your update and Tom's weekly reports on Judicial Watch have been very helpful. I think what will unite Americans is that TRUTH finally is out there. Some people need to see and hear for themselves. However the Media now has to take responsibility for the fire their stoked which now shows Political greed , need for power and control, and corruption like we have never in our history experienced. Spy Gate is a good title but doesn't begin to tell the whole story. How about: The Dark Side of Humankind Attacks The USA. We have lost our innocence and way of life is being attacked.
    My question for you and Tom is please get a lawyer's definition on the word Treason ? Thanks for the report.
