Fusion GPS, hired by Hillary for dirt on Trump, also paid 3 journalists

Fusion GPS is a commercial DC-based intelligence firm that conducts opposition political research on political candidates, such as on Mitt Romney. The company was hired by Planned Parenthood (PP) to investigate pro-life activists who took a series of “sting” videos showing PP selling aborted baby parts to medical researchers.

In the 2016 presidential campaign during the GOP primary elections, Fusion GPS was first hired by Republicans, rumored to be RINO Sen. John McCain, to conduct “opposition research” on Donald Trump, which ended when Trump became the GOP’s presidential nominee.

The DNC (Democratic National Committee) and Hillary Clinton then hired Fusion GPS to continue digging up “dirt” on Trump. Fusion GPS, in turn, hired former British MI-6 agent Christopher Steele to compile a dossier on Trump, which became infamous for its entirely-fake allegation that Trump — a self-described “germophobe” — had engaged Russian prostitutes to urinate (“golden shower”) on a Russian hotel bed supposedly used by Obama.

But Fusion GPS didn’t employ just Chris Steele.

On November 21, 2017, Fusion GPS’s documents were unsealed as a result of a ruling by D.C. district court judge Richard Leon in a lawsuit over the firm’s bank records.

As reported by Luis Orozco for Conservative Daily Post, the unsealed documents reveal new details of payment transactions made to and by Fusion GPS, as well shed new light on requests made by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence concerning the firm.

Altogether, Fusion GPS’s bank documents list 112 payment transactions involving the firm, most of which are redacted, except for transactions between Fusion and two law firms on two Russia-related projects. The law firms are:

(1) Perkins Coie, which represented the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, paid Fusion GPS a total of more than $1.4 million in 2016 for “opposition research” on Donald Trump:

  • $1,024,408 between May 24, 2016 and Dec. 28, 2016.
  • $365,275 on the eve of the election on Oct. 28, 2016.
  • A payment after the election in late December 2016.

(2) BakerHostetler, which paid Fusion GPS $523,651 between March 7, 2016 and Oct. 31, 2016, to investigate a London-based banker, Bill Browder, who helped push through the Magnitsky Act — a sanctions law vehemently opposed by the Russian government. The $523,651 came from a Russian businessman convicted of tax fraud and money laundering.

Fusion GPS founding partner and former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson compiled the research for Fusion’s anti-Browder project, working closely with a Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya, who gave Simpson’s research to Russia’s prosecutor general Yuri Chaika. Veselnitskaya also shared Simpson’s research, in the form of a 4-page memo to Donald Trump Jr., with whom she met in the Trump Tower in June 2016 — a meeting that was arranged by Fusion GPS associate Rob Goldstone.

As Conservative Daily Post‘s Luis Orozco points out, opposition research firm Fusion GPS “is the common denominator linked to two different schemes used to damage the Trump campaign” — “one of the main weapons . . . to prevent the Republican victory.”

There are two more interesting things that are revealed in the un-redacted  Fusion GPS financial transactions:

  1. Strangely, the transaction list doesn’t show payments that Fusion made to Chris Steele, although it is known that he was paid a total of  $168,000 for his work, which lasted from June 2016 until the presidential election.
  2. Fusion GPS´s unsealed documents also reveal a request by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for records of:
    • Five payments made by Fusion for “research” and to a mysterious “Russia expert.”
    • Nine payments made by Fusion to three journalists who had reported on Russia issues.

A memo filed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on November 21, 2017, shows that the committee’s lawyers are seeking the records of nine Fusion GPS payments to three journalists, all of whom have reported and been quoted in articles related to Russia. But the identities of the three journalists are redacted.

Please contact Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chair of House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and demand that the American people have the right to know the names of the three journalists who were paid by Fusion GPS — hired by the Democrats to dig up “dirt” on Trump — to do who knows what. Below is Nunes’ contact info.:

By the way, a recent Daily Caller investigation found a hitherto unknown association between Fusion GPS and Tom Steyer, a billionaire financier and Democrat Party operative who is funding the $20 million campaign to impeach President Trump.

In 2012, Steyer hired Fusion GPS and its founding partner, Glenn Simpson, to conduct an investigation to help pass ballot initiative Proposition 39, aimed at closing a tax loophole for California businesses and funneling money to so-called clean energy projects.

Prop 39 was a success, which made Steyer a rising star in the world of Democratic politics. He was the party’s most generous donor in the 2016 election cycle — giving more than $90 million to various political action committees.

Steyer is said to be considering running for political office. In August 2015, he launched the Fair Shake Commission on Income Inequality and Middle Class Opportunity, purportedly an implicit announcement of candidacy for the 2018 California gubernatorial race. (Lots more on Steyer, the “green” or environmental hypocrite here.)

California college lecturer threatens to ‘beat the sh*t’ out of pro-lifers

This is yet another nail in the coffin of the Left’s narcissistic self-portrayal as tolerant, caring, peace-loving people.

A part-time lecturer at San Jose State University (SJSU), Matthew Kapell, Ph.D., sent out a tweet that he and his wife, Amy, want to “beat the shit out of” Planned Parenthood protesters.

The tweet was published on the Facebook page of Pro-Life Libertarians on October 16, 2017:

A native of Detroit, Matthew Wilhelm Kapell teaches anthropology and history at SJSU. He was a doctoral student at Wayne State University, but received his Ph.D. in American Studies from Swansea University, Wales, UK. Kapell is 48 years old. His wife, Amy Kapell (née Greer), is 42 years old. They live in Roseville, CA.

Dorothy Cummings McLean reports for LifeSiteNews, Nov. 13, 2017, that San Jose State University spokeswoman Patricia Harris told web magazine The College Fix that SJSU would “respond appropriately” to Kappel’s tweet, whatever that means, and to LifeSiteNews that the university’s response is “a personnel matter”.

San Jose State University’s contact info.:

Mary Papazian, President of SJSU:

  • Phone: 408-924-1177
  • Email: sjsupres@sjsu.edu

Kapell’s online threat to “beat the shit” out of pro-lifers is a violation of USC 18.41 Sec. 875(c), which specifies that it is a federal crime to transmit any communication containing a threat to injure the person of another, via the Internet, e-mail, telephone, beepers, and other means of communication. The violation is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Please report Matthew Wilhelm Kapell to the FBI:

Baby-butcher supporter Kristen Bell shilling for Whole Foods

Hollyweird libtard Kristen Bell is a big supporter of baby butchers Planned Parenthood. She is also very vocal about her disdain for President Trump. Bell is also a rabid anti-gunner. A glimpse at some of Bell’s tweets:

  • “The @NRA needs mental health care.” (In response to the Sandy Hook shootings.)
  • “Official diagnosis: This country is gun sick.” (In response to the Dallas Police shootings.)
  • A tweet Bell retweeted after the Orlando shootings: “My thoughts and prayers are with the Senators that voted down gun control. My thoughts: do your job. My prayer: you’re voted out of office.”
  • Another retweet of Bell’s: “Ladies, this election cycle you either vote with your vagina or your asshole.#HillaryClinton#DonaldTrump

She’s being paid (big bucks I assume) as the spokeswomyn for several companies:

She’s now speaking on behalf of another company, Whole Foods. On November 4, Whole Foods announced the following on their Facebook page:

Introducing our Holiday Host: Kristen Bell! Go behind-the-scenes and follow us all season long to learn how this vegetarian tackles the turkey for her family, plant-based sides, and so much more

From Whole Foods’ web page: Kristen offers several ideas for you including, holiday main course tips, tips for holiday baking, holiday party tips and a “survival guide for the holidays.”

Here’s a pro-tip for surviving the holidays: Pray your mother doesn’t abort you at Planned Parenthood.

Keep this in mind when deciding where to shop for groceries.

Sandra Bullock to star as Wendy Davis in “Let Her Speak”

sandra bullock

Way to tarnish your career by playing the loser Abortion Barbie. I predict another Hollyweird dud.

From Dallas News: Sandra Bullock is poised to take on the role of Wendy Davis in a new movie called Let Her Speak about the filibuster that catapulted the former Texas senator into the national spotlight.

Bullock, who previously lived in Austin, is attached to the script as long as the project lands a director she likes, Deadline Hollywood reported.

The movie would cover the day of the filibuster as well as Davis’ journey from a teen mother living in a trailer park to a Harvard-trained lawyer who later won a seat on the Fort Worth City Council.

On June 25, 2013, Davis stood on the state Senate floor in pink Mizuno sneakers for more than 12 straight hours to block a vote on what would have been one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country. She went without breaks and water during the filibuster.

When Republicans used strict interpretations of the Senate rules to try to end the filibuster and call a vote before the first special session of the 83rd Legislature ended at midnight, abortion rights activists who had packed the gallery erupted into chants of “let her speak.”

The vote was cast in favor of the bill largely along party lines, but came too late and the session was called to a close without Senate Bill 5’s passage. 

After the filibuster, then-Gov. Rick Perry called legislators back for another special session, and the bill that banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy was passed.

The bill also mandated that abortions be performed at hospital-like surgical centers and that doctors who perform abortions must have admitting privileges at hospitals, requirements that caused more than half of the state’s abortion clinics to close.

After a lengthy legal debate, the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2016 struck down the regulations on abortion doctors and clinics in a 5-3 decision. The ruling determined that the restrictions posed an unconstitutional burden on women seeking to end a pregnancy.

Davis waived a bid for re-election to run for governor in 2014. She was dealt a strong defeat by Greg Abbott, who beat her with more than 20 percentage points. 

Another Hollyweird project I won’t be seeing.

Pro-life student group wins settlement after professor tries to wipe out chalk message

Excellent!

From Fox News: A California professor who is seen on video trying to censor pro-life students drawing with sidewalk chalk has been ordered to undergo First Amendment training and pay $17,000 as a result of a district court settlement.

Fresno State University public health professor Dr. Gregory Thatcher recruited students from his class to help deface the Fresno State Students for Life (FSSL) sidewalk chalk.

Thatcher allegedly harassed and intimidated the group, accusing them of chalking outside the free speech zone on campus — which hadn’t existed at the school since 2015.

“What the professor did was wrong, and the only permit a student needs to speak on campus is the First Amendment,” the pro-life club’s president, Bernadette Tasy, told Fox News.

The chalk messages encouraged students on campus to seek pro-life health care options.

Tasy captured an exchange between herself and Thatcher in a video clip of the incident.

“Free speech is free speech in the free speech area,” Thatcher is heard telling Tasy. “It’s a pretty simple concept, okay? This does not constitute a free speech area. Okay?”

After Tasy insisted they had permission from the university, Thatcher started erasing the chalk with his shoe. “You have permission to put it down, and I have permission to get rid of it. This is our part of free speech. College campuses are not free speech areas,” Thatcher said, “Do you understand? Obviously you don’t understand.”

As part of the settlement, in which Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) represented FSSL, Thatcher will pay $1,000 to Tasy and $1,000 to another student, Jesus Herrera, along with some attorneys’ fees. The professor is also required to undergo First Amendment training to be provided by ADF.

Thatcher told Fox News he won’t have to pay a penny out of his own pocket because the settlement was made through his insurance company. “I did not, in any way, admit to any wrongdoing,” Thatcher said. “I did agree to sit through a training seminar because I love to learn others’ thoughts and opinions.”

But Tasy said it’s not about the money. “The important thing is that Dr. Thatcher won’t be able to interfere with our expressive activities again,” she said.

Tasy was “really shocked” that a professor would behave like that – especially at a public university. “Public university professors should be encouraging free speech and not erasing it from existence,” she said.

Travis Barham, ADF Legal Counsel, said Thatcher was “in a league of his own” with such a flagrant violation of the First Amendment. “This is a particularly extreme case because you have a professor trying to wipe away the chalk himself,” Barham said. “Far too often university officials try to play the role of speech police and try to restrict what can be said and where it can be said on campus.”

Fresno State University did not respond to request for comment. Thatcher remains listed as faculty in the Department of Public Health, as noted by the College Fix.

Hollyweird libtard Mila Kunis donates monthly to PP in Mike Pence’s name

mila kunis

Mila Kunis

Great! I guess that means less taxpayer dollars needed for the baby butchers.

From Daily Mail: Mila Kunis makes a donation once a month to the nonprofit Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence‘s name.

Laughing, she told Conan O’Brien she anonymously sends a donation in the name of the Vice President of the United States because she disagrees with his policies on reducing access to reproductive health care.

She said: ‘This is when a lot of hate mail comes my way. I apologise if I’m offending anybody. I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do.

‘And so, as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood.’

And the Friends With Benefits star doesn’t see it as a prank but just as a way to peacefully protest his policies. She added: ‘Every month, to his office, he gets a little letter that says, “An anonymous donation has been made in your name.” I don’t look at it as a prank. This is just – I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of showing it.’

Mila is not alone in her subtle protest. A year ago Planned Parenthood confirmed it had received more than 200,000 individual donations in the name of the vice president, who has long attempted to restrict women’s access to abortion.

‘We’ve seen an unprecedented outpouring of support, with more than 200,000 people donating in the week following the election — a quarter of whom pledged to be monthly supporters, recognizing the long-term work that is needed,’ the organization’s president Cecile Richards said in a statement.

Read the rest of the story here.

FYI: Kunis is a spokesman for Jim Beam, which conservatives are now boycotting.
