Former Trump adviser Roger Stone survives assassination attempt

Two days ago, on the Alex Jones Show of January 17, 2017, former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone revealed an assassination attempt had been made on him via a lethal poison.

Stone told radio host Alex Jones he’s usually very healthy, but became violently ill several weeks ago:

“I am generally a healthy person. I have been a runner and a weight lifter. I am very careful in my diet. I’m a user of the Infowars supplements. I have been treated with acupuncture by perhaps the greatest acupuncturist in the state of Florida if not the United States.”

Stone said his symptoms presented themselves first as a “routine stomach virus,” but that he eventually grew “exceedingly ill”:

“So I ultimately went to the doctors at Mt. Sinai hospital in Miami Beach, my own personal physician. They conducted extensive blood tests. Those blood tests were passed on to CDC.

The general consensus is that I was poisoned. I was poisoned with, they now say, a substance that may have been polonium or had the characteristics of polonium. This made me exceedingly ill. The conjecture of all the doctors was that I did not receive a large enough dose to kill me, but I have never been this ill.”

Polonium-210 is a radioactive substance that releases extremely harmful alpha particles throughout the body, producing cancer-causing free radicals. It has been used in numerous high profile assassinations, including that of former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko, and was suspected in the death of former PLO leader Yassar Arafat.

As to who is responsible for the attempted assassination, Stone speculates:

“Who would want to do this to me? I am an enemy of the deep state. I think people know that I was an insider in American politics — I was close to power in nine presidential elections. Everything Glenn Greenwald says [about the ‘deep state’] is true [referring to a recent The Intercept article on how the intelligence community is attempting to stifle Trump.]

The Republican/Democrat Bush Clinton deep state has manufactured this Russia fraud. They have compounded it by pushing a clearly fabricated document. Perhaps the fact that I’m effective on behalf of my beliefs has something to do with it.”

The same day as his appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Stone sent out this tweet:

Yes, I believe I was poisoned to stop me from exposing the ‘Russian Hacking’ LIE b4 the Congressional Investigation @StoneColdTruth

Trump already has his 2020 campaign slogan!

The Left’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is sure to go into overdrive over this.

maga

Katherine Rodriguez reports for Breitbart that two days before his inauguration, Donald Trump already has the slogan for his re-election campaign in 2020.

During an interview with the Washington “fake news” Post on Jan. 18, 2017, he asked, “Are you ready?,” then announced his 2020 campaign slogan:

“Keep America Great!”

Trump called his lawyer into his office to trademark the slogan, more than three years before he is up for re-election, so confident is he that America would be great by the time he uses it.

It turns out he had done this before.

In 2012, within a week of Mitt Romney’s loss to Obama, Trump trademarked “Make America Great Again” for a $325 fee.

He explained that at the time, “I felt that jobs were hurting. I looked at the many types of illness our country had, and whether it’s at the border, whether it’s security, whether it’s law and order or lack of law and order. Then, of course, you get to trade, and I said to myself, ‘What would be good?’ I was sitting at my desk, where I am right now, and I said, ‘Make America Great Again.’”

To him, “Make America Great Again” meant a plan from more jobs to a stronger military.

The slogan and the hashtag #MAGA quickly made its way to hats and t-shirts, and became a rallying cry for supporters.

In addition to his 2020 campaign slogan, Trump plans to keep his campaign office in Trump Tower open during his first presidential term to work on re-election efforts, Politico reported.

The majority of Americans believe Russian hacking of the presidential election did not change the result

blame-the-russians

Maybe that’s because there’s still no definitive proof that Russia was behind hacking the DNC emails, which exposed the democrats’ and state run media’s attempt to get Hillary elected. Better luck next time.

From Daily Mail: Most Americans think Donald Trump would have still won the election regardless of information leaks that came out of Russia’s alleged hacking, a poll reported.

In the study, 58 per cent thought the outcome of the U.S. presidential elections would have remained the same, despite the hacking of files from the Democratic National Convention.

Americans thought ‘regardless of the information released as a result of Russian hacking’ Trump would still have won the election, according to a poll conducted by CNN and ORC.

A minority of 40 per cent of people said the information leak was damaging enough to change voter’s minds. Wikileaks published thousands of emails and documents pertaining to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC, in June 2016.

CIA officials concluded that Russia was involved and the leaks were intended to prevent Clinton from winning the presidency.  Even Trump admitted that he believed Putin and his government were behind the intelligence (since when are DNC emails considered “intelligence?”) scandal and said in a press conference that he ‘thought it was Russia’.

The senate announced last week that an intelligence panel was investigating Russia’s alleged hacking and the country’s ties with the political campaigns.

Despite the major security breach, most Americans think the U.S. should seek to improve relations with Russia, instead of taking actions against the foreign government, according to the study.

Of those polled, 56 per cent said it was ‘more important that the U.S. continue efforts to improve relations with Russia’ while 41 per cent said America should ‘take strong diplomatic and economic steps against Russia in response’.

Trump ‘fake news’ dossier’s creator, British spook Chris Steele, fears for his life

Christopher Steele, 52, the former British MI6 spy who authored the 35-page dirty dossier on Donald Trump, has gone underground and is attempting to hide behind UK privacy rules.

chris-steele

Despite it being “classified” and its information totally unverified, CNN reported the dossier as a legitimate U.S. intelligence document, and Buzzfeed saw fit to publish it online.

See “CNN Fake News: U.S. intelligence memo says Russia has ‘compromising’ information on Trump

One of the most ridiculous claims in the dossier is a lurid account that on a trip to Russia, Trump had hired hookers to urinate (“golden showers”) on a bed in the Moscow Ritz Carlton on which Obama supposedly had slept, and that Russia has a tape of the “golden showers”. The story has all the marks of something a pimply-faced teenager living in his mommy’s basement would conjure, as if Trump would be so juvenile and stupid as to do that, well knowing that Russian intelligence has the hotel and its rooms wired.

Actually, we have good reason to think a pimply-faced teenager did concoct the “golden showers” incident.

According to ZeroHedge, a poster on the scuzzy 4chan chat forum had invented the “golden showers” incident as a hoax. Jim Stone says he saw the 4chan “golden showers” post last November 1. (There’s no record of the post because 4chan scrubs its chatter after a day.)

The 4chan hoaxer then sent the “golden showers” story to Rick Wilson — the GOP consultant who, during the GOP primaries, had called for assassinating Trump. Wilson then sent the story to the CIA, who included the completely unverified account in their official classified (therefore, secret) intelligence report on Russia’s hacking and interference the 2016 election.

GOP consultant Rick Wilson

On January 11, 2017, the day after the CNN article on the dossier, in his first press conference as President-elect, Trump denounced the CNN report as “fake news” and Buzzfeed a “failing pile of garbage”. The Kremlin, too, calls the dossier a “complete fabrication” and denies having “compromising” information on Trump.

In a phone call to Trump and in an official statement, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said the intelligence community “has not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable, and we did not rely upon it in any way for our conclusions.” Clapper calls the 35-page dossier “a private security company document” that “is not a U.S. Intelligence Community product”.

The “private security company” is Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd. in London, which is owned by Chris Steels and Christopher Burrows, also a former MI6 agent, who claims not to have been involved in the dossier.

Reportedly, Steele, who is described as a “confirmed socialist” as a student at Cambridge, was paid by two groups to put together the dirty dossier on Trump — first, Trump’s GOP primary opponents; then after Trump became the GOP nominee, Hillary Clinton’s campaign and supporters.

Carl Bernstein, who co-wrote the CNN report, said Chris Steele gave the dossier to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who is bitterly anti-Trump. McCain then handed it to the FBI. (New York Post) Another account said McCain got the dossier from “a former British ambassador”. (Daily Mail)

That’s how the 35-page dossier ended up in U.S. intelligence files on Trump, even though, according to James Clapper, the intelligence agencies could not determine the reliability or truth of the dossier’s information, nor did the agencies “rely upon it in any way” for their conclusions. All of which should lead us to ask why the dossier is included in U.S. intelligence reports on Trump in the first place.

Ex-MI6 spook Chris Steele is reported to be in fear for his life after his name became public. Steele, who had spied for the UK in Moscow in the 1990s, fled his home in Surrey so quickly that lights were left and neighbors were hurriedly asked to look after his three cats. There are claims he is hiding out in an MI6 safe house amid fears of backlash from Moscow. Downing Street is refusing to be drawn on whether the government had offered assistance to Steele.

A representative for Steele and his family, as well as his business partner, ask that journalists stop trying to contact them, their employees and family members citing privacy and harassment regulations, which is most ironic because Steele had no such qualms in compiling his dossier of unverified trash on Trump.

Steele’s involvement in the Trump dossier now threatens to be a diplomatic problem for the UK government, caught in the crossfire between the U.S and Russia.

In a tweet, Russia’s London embassy suggests that Steele is still working for MI6 and “briefing both ways” against Trump and Moscow.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May — who is due to visit Washington in the coming weeks with Trump in the White House — is under pressure to reassure Trump the UK had nothing to do with the dossier. At the same time, according to the Telegraph, sources claim Steele had spoken to government officials in London before handing the report to the FBI.

There are also reports that when Steele was active as an MI6 agent, he had worked with Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko — the former KGB man who was murdered with the lethal poison polonium in London in 2006, on the orders of Moscow.

For an excellent article on Chris Steele, the failed MI6 spy, and why his report is not credible, see John Helmer, “Deconstructing MI6 Smear Artist Chris Steele’s ‘Dossier’ on Trump’s Moscow Visit,” Russian Insider, Jan. 18, 2017.

Trump’s war with the CIA

During the 2016 presidential campaign, the MSM made no secret of their partiality for Hillary Clinton.

Relations between Trump and the media came to a head yesterday, over a CNN report that the Russian government has “compromising” information on Trump — information that is detailed in a “classified” 35-page dossier, a synopsis of which was handed to Trump when he met last week with four top intelligence officials (Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers).

The dossier allegedly had been compiled by a former British intelligence (MI6) official for Trump’s GOP primary campaign opponents, and later for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Another media outlet, Buzzfeed, published the dossier, including the salacious allegation only a pimply-faced teenager living in his mom’s basement would conjure — that Trump, during a visit to Moscow, had hired hookers to urinate on a bed Obama had slept in.

The CNN report completely fell apart less than 24 hours after it was published:

  • Trump denounced it as “fake news” and a “political witch hunt”. In his press conference yesterday morning, Trump called CNN “fake news,” and Buzzfeed a “failing pile of garbage”.
  • The Kremlin denies having a “compromising” dossier on Trump and calls the intelligence report a “complete fabrication”.
  • A poster on 4chan claims to have concocted the Trump “golden showers” story, which he sent to Rick Wilson — the GOP consultant who called for assassinating Trump — who sent it to the CIA, which then put it in their official classified intelligence report on the election. (ZeroHedge)
  • Carl Bernstein, who co-wrote the CNN report, said the MI6 spook, Chris Steele, had given the dossier of memos to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who is overtly anti-Trump. McCain, in turn, handed it to the FBI. (New York Post)
  • In a phone conversation with Trump yesterday (Jan. 11) evening, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper called the 35-page dossier “a private security company document” that “is not a U.S. Intelligence Community product”. Clapper said the intelligence community (IC) “has not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable, and we did not rely upon it in any way for our conclusions.” He also said he does not believe the leaks came from within the IC. (DNI Clapper Statement on Conversation with President-elect Trump)

Despite Clapper’s “make nice” phone call to Trump, it’s no secret that the intelligence agencies of the Obama administration, with their allegations of Russia hacking and intervening in the election to favor Trump, are hell-bent on subverting the November 8 election.

Trump, for his part, has said that he will reform the intelligence agencies, beginning with the CIA.

chuck-shumer

On January 3, 2017, responding to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow‘s description of  Trump as “taking these shots, antagonisms, taunting the intelligence community,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said something quite ominous:

“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you. So, even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”

Is that a threat?

Former Senator Ron Paul (R) thinks so.

In the “Liberty Report” on January 5, 2017, Paul had an interesting exchange with Daniel McAdams, Executive Directive of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity.

9:28 mark: McAdams says Chuck Schumer is “plugged in pretty well to the deep state,” then quotes what Schumer said on MSNBC, that Trump is “really dumb” to take on the intelligence community because the latter “have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you.”

McAdams observes, “That is very chilling,” and asks Paul if what Schumer said is “a threat” at Donald Trump.

Paul: “This is not a lie. I think he [Schumer] is speaking the truth there — better watch out. I think Trump knows about it. That’s why he has private security.

Paul also had plenty of other interesting things to say about the CIA:

“They’ve gotten us into so much trouble. The evidence is so overwhelming that they’ve been involved in many assassinations, not only…the Kennedy assassination, maybe both Kennedys’ for all we know.”

Paul said the CIA is so secretive that “even as a member of Congress,” he couldn’t find out “what was really going on and sometimes I don’t even know what was going on…. I don’t think they give us information. They hide information from us…and they mislead us.” So Paul applauds Trump’s plan to look into and shrink the intelligence agencies. But he warns that Trump’s reform will be met with “great resistance”.

McAdams said something that I’ve read on other blogs and sites, that there are factions within the intelligence agencies. McAdams said that parts of the CIA “have been in open warfare against Trump through the campaign. So many ‘anonymous’ leaks from intelligence officials.” Implying that Trump knows what he’s up against, McAdams noted that Trump has “surrounded himself very closely with military types, military officers,” and that there’s an “ongoing tension between Pentagon intelligence analysis and what the CIA does,” as in Syria “where the CIA troops are fighting the Pentagon troops on the ground”.

Paul said there are 17 intelligence agencies altogether and that “the deep state is involved”. Paul also said that he does not believe the Obama administration’s claims that Russia hacked and intervened in the 2016 election — “I don’t think they have the evidence”. He points out that it is the U.S. government and the CIA that repeatedly intervene in other countries’ elections — as many as 81 elections since WWII and 50 assassinations.

McAdams points out the hypocrisy of John McCain accusing Russia of intervening in our election when McCain “went to Ukraine and actually participated in the overthrow of an elected government” and “did the same thing and went into Syria and met with a bunch of terrorists” because McCain wants to overthrow the Assad government.”

8:45 mark: Paul said Trump “will have problems achieving” reform of the intelligence agencies “because there’s so many obstacles and he won’t know who really represents the CIA unless he is well attuned to the deep state because the real orders and assassinations” are given to the CIA by the deep state.

In its post, “The Final Takedown of Trump Begins in Earnest,” State of the Nation concludes:

“There can be only one reason for the fake dossier that was fabricated by rogue elements within the U.S. intelligence community. To use it as a pretext to delegitimize the presidency of Donald Trump by traitors within the Obama Administration and DNC, as well as rogue intelligence agencies.

That this unvetted fraud was then quickly disseminated throughout the global MSM provides further evidence of a highly organized coup against the president-elect. […]

Make no mistake about it: from now until Inauguration Day will be the most dangerous times for Donald Trump and his transition team. The very future of the United States of America now hangs in the balance as never before.”

Business owner to CNN, liberals and Springsteen: ‘We’ve had it with you idiots’

lake-oswego-sign

From Fox News: A small business owner in Oregon has a message for CNN, ignorant liberals and Bruce Springsteen: “We’ve had it with you idiots.”

Kevin Kerwin is the proprietor of Kevin the Geek Computer Repair store in Lake Oswego. He’s also one of the few conservatives around town. “Oregon is a very beautiful state, but it’s infested with liberals,” Kevin tells me.

Kevin was especially bothered by the militant liberals who tried to burn down Portland following the 2016 presidential election. And it did not help matters when Bruce Springsteen, one of his favorite singers, raged against Trump’s supporters and suggested the president-elect appealed to un-American tendencies.

“When you let that genie out of the bottle – bigotry, racism, intolerance – they don’t go back into the bottle that easily, if they go back in at all,” Springsteen said on the “WTF” podcast. “Whether it’s a rise in hate crimes, people feeling they have license to speak and behave in ways that previously were considered un-American and are un-American. That’s what he’s appealing to.”

Just hearing him say that kind of stuff makes me mad, Kevin said.

But when four black suspects kidnapped and tortured a mentally challenged white man and pummeled him on Facebook Live – well – Kevin decided enough was enough. “When that kidnapping happened – that was one of the last straws,” he said.

So Kevin posted a giant sign on the front of his computer repair shop – and it’s pretty epic, folks.

To all the ignorant liberals including Bruce Springsteen…The 4 people who kidnapped & tortured a disabled teenager just because he supports Donald Trump – Just shows everyone you are a party of complete morons. I’m embarrassed to call you Americans. Go straight to Hell where you belong. We’ve had it with you idiots.”

For the record, there’s no clear evidence the young man who was tortured was actually a Trump supporter. However, it’s clear the victim’s attackers were displeased with not only Trump but white people, too.

Oh, he also had a message for CNN, calling them “Comedy News Network, Fake News all the Time, Propaganda for Liberals.”

It’s not the first time Kevin has posted a message on the front of his store – and it’s not the first time he’s posted his true feelings regarding liberals. “They’ve all boycotted my store, (but) I don’t care what they think,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of great conservatives here and they support my shop.”
