Rep. Devin Nunes: NYT reporters are paid to write fake news by Democrat Super PACs

On March 15, 2018, in a televised interview on Fox News, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said something stunning.

Beginning at the 5:20 mark in the video below, Congressman Nunes upbraided the “friends of the Democrats in the mainstream media”. Referring specifically to the New York Times, Nunes said the newspaper’s reporters “are heavily funded by Democratic Super PACs,” which the Times “should have disclosed”.

On March 12, 2018, after a 14-month investigation and who knows how much in taxpayer dollars, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence announced that they had completed their Russia investigation and found no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), who led the bipartisan investigation, said on FoxNews’ Special Report:

“We didn’t find any evidence of collusion and I don’t think [special counsel Robert Mueller] will either.”

Committee Chairman Devin Nunes issued this press release:

“After more than a year, the Committee has finished its Russia investigation and will now work on completing our report. I’d like to thank Congressmen Trey Gowdy, Tom Rooney, and especially Mike Conaway for the excellent job they’ve done leading this investigation. I’d also like to recognize the hard work undertaken by our other Committee members as well as our staff. Once the Committee’s final report is issued, we hope our findings and recommendations will be useful for improving security and integrity for the 2018 midterm elections.”

In more good news, the New York Post reports that last night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he had fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, just two days before McCabe is due to retire.

Sessions said in a statement that investigators “concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”

As Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe signed a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) order, requesting the FISA Court to authorize electronic surveillance on Carter Page, a Trump campaign volunteer. The FISA orders were made under false pretenses because material and relevant information was omitted.

See “FISA Memo in text format. Lock them up!

Devin Nunes, 44, is a farmer who became a politician, having grown up on his family farm in Tulares County in California’s Central Valley. His grandparents were immigrants from the Azores, a tiny group of islands more than 800 miles off the coast of Portugal.

Nunes has a Master’s degree in agriculture from Cal Poly. When he was 14 years old, he became an entrepreneur when he bought seven heads of young cattle. He once said, “I never pictured myself running for office. I always wanted to be a winemaker and make cheese, that sort of thing.” (See “The Devin Nunes You Don’t Know“)

Diogenes found an honest politician!

Nunes is that rare politician who has not sought to exploit his public office for financial gain.

Unlike corrupt politicians like Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee with a 2015 net worth of $3.5 million, Nunes’ net worth in 2016 and 2015 was estimated at only $158,001. (Heavy.com)

9,294 sealed indictments and the last time Hillary, Podesta and Soros were on Twitter

An indictment is a formal accusation that a person has committed a crime. A sealed indictment is an indictment that stays non-public until an arrest is made. Sealed indictments are typically used in prosecuting individuals or criminal networks in cases where revealing names could lead individuals to flee or destroy evidence.

In 2006, there were only 1,077 sealed indictments for the entire year, according to a 2009 Federal Judicial Center report. Those sealed indictments made up about 0.96% of all criminal cases that year.

Contrast that to 2017. In less than two months (October 30 to December 22, 2017), 9,294 sealed indictments have been filed in districts across the United States, according to data collected by researchers and gathered from the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) service of the federal judiciary. 

According to Marc Ruskin, a former FBI undercover agent and author of The Pretender: My Life Undercover for the FBI, the large number of sealed indictments is something he’d never seen in his 27 years as an agent. Ruskin said this may explain the relatively low profile maintained by Attorney General Jeff Sessions because “If he’s been occupied with an initiative that is sort of under wraps and being conducted covertly, it would explain why he hasn’t had a prominent position in the media as of late—because these are things he can’t talk about.” (The Epoch Times)

When unsealed, all those indictments will require prosecutors. And so it makes sense that on Jan. 3, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed 17 current and former federal prosecutors as interim U.S. attorneys.  (Washington Post)

The extraordinarily large number of sealed indictments has sparked speculations and rumors that the Trump Department of Justice is going after Hillary Clinton and  pedophiles (pizzagate):

  • According to a January 4, 2018 report by John Solomon for The Hill, law enforcement officials and a witness said that the Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton was as secretary of State.
  • Former FBI agent Ruskin said the lack of chatter about the sealed indictments in legacy news outlets and retired FBI circles may suggest that the higher-ups have no political interest in leaking their content. Ruskin believes that the most plausible cause for the surge of sealed indictment is human trafficking. Even his work investigating the mafia didn’t generate anywhere near as many sealed indictments as those currently pending; but with a human trafficking network, he said, there would be multiple groups operating in multiple districts—which fits the profile.

The rumors are fueled by cryptic “bread crumbs” made by an apparent Trump White House insider who has been posting on the 4chan and 8chan message boards as “Q Anonymous”. Among his tantalizing “bread crumbs” are the following:

(1) On December 11, 2017, Q Anon posted on 8chan: “We have a special place picked out for GS. Really special.” Six days later on December 17, 2017, President Trump tweeted: “Wonderful weekend at Camp David. A very special place. A lot of very important work done.” That led to speculations that George Soros had been captured and confined in Camp David.

That same day, December 17, 2017, Atlanta International Airport had a major power blackout that lasted 11 hours. Q Anon asks: “why did they have to shut the whole airport / time to get one person out / who was the person”.

Flight logs show that, whereas planes were grounded and more than 1,000 flights were canceled, a cargo plane operated by Israeli CAL Cargo Airlines was allowed to fly from the airport. CAL Cargo Airlines boasts a Customs Clearance status — “the ability to load and unload trucks without the presence of a customs agent”.  The plane’s records show that it made a stop at its hub in Liege, in Larnaca, Cyprus, and then landed in Tel Aviv, Israel. (The Free Thought Project)

(2) On December 19, 2017, Q Anon posted the message that “We won’t telegraph our moves to the ENEMY. We will however light a FIRE to flush them out.” On January 3, 2018, a fire broke out in a cottage occupied by the Secret Service on Bill and Hillary Clinton’s property in Chappaqua, New York. The Clintons were not home at the time.

One clue for whether some of the key players have been arrested is their Twitter feeds. They can’t tweet if they’re arrested, although there are also other reasons why someone stops tweeting. This is what I found:

7/6/2016: Huma Abedin’s (@HumaAbedin) last tweet. (Note: There is a pic of Abedin taken on Dec. 29, 2017, in which a strange wrinkle on her right pant leg suggests an ankle monitor.)

6/16/2017: Tony Podesta’s (@realTonyPodesta) last tweet. In early November, it was rumored that he’d been indicted and arrested.

9/9/2017: Congresswoman Jackie Speier’s (@JackieSpeier) last tweet. Speier’s other, official Twitter account’s @RepSpeier last tweet, however, was today, 1/9/2018. (Speier has been seen wearing an orthopedic boot.)

10/25/2017: Congresswoman Jackie Walorski’s (@JackieWalorski) last tweet. Walorski’s other, official Twitter account’s (@RepWalorski) last tweet was today, January 9, 2018. (Walorski was photographed on November 2, 2017, wearing a medical boot.)

11/26/2017: George Soros’s (@georgesoros) last tweet.

12/17/2017: Atlanta International Airport blackout.

12/17/2017: John Podesta’s (@johnpodesta) last tweet.

12/21/2017: President Trump issues the Global Magnitsky Act executive order “blocking the property of persons involved in serious human rights abuse or corruption”.

12/29/2017: Barack Obama’s (@BarackObama) last tweet.

1/2/2018: Hillary Clinton’s (@HillaryClinton) last tweet. (Hillary was photographed on December 14, 2017, wearing a medical boot.)

1/3/2018: Clinton house fire.

1/9/2018: John McCain’s (@SenJohnMcCain) last tweet. (McCain also wears a medical boot.)

Some observations:

  • Tony Podesta has not tweeted for nearly 7 months, since last June. But then he hardly ever tweeted.
  • George Soros has not tweeted for 1½ months, since November 26. But then he is 87 years old. Last October, almost as if he had anticipated Trump’s executive order blocking the property of human rights abusers, Soros craftily transferred the bulk (78% or $18 billion) of his net worth into his Open Society Foundation.
  • John Podesta has not tweeted for 23 days, since December 17.
  • Given the recent dates of Hillary’s and McCain’s last tweets, it sure doesn’t look like either has been arrested.

Obama and young girls

“Pizza” and “hotdog” are pedophile code-words for little girls and little boys. See:

We already know that Obama’s VP, Joe Biden, is a pedophile.

Here he is, copping a feel of 13-year-old pizza, oops, I mean daughter, of newly sworn-in Senator Christopher Coons (D-Delaware) in January 2015:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Biden’s former colleague in the Senate, knows. Here he is, slapping the hand of Biden off from groping a young girl:

Then there’s Biden’s 2016 birthday gift to Obama of a childish “friendship” bracelet with beads spelling out “Joe” and “Barack”, and cute charms in the shape of a blue flower, smiley face, blue star and a slice of pizza pie. (Hollywood Reporter)

At the time, the two men were 74 (Biden) and 55 years old (Obama).

Then there’s that WikiLeaks email that Obama had flown “pizzas” and “hotdogs” from Chicago for a “private party at the White House” at a cost of $65,000 to taxpayers.

Obama so loves “pizza,” he’s good pals with James Alefantis, the owner of D.C. pizzeria Comet Ping Pong and former boyfriend of Clinton crony and Democratic Party operative David Brock (of Media Matters).

Though a mere pizza restaurateur, GQ magazine in 2012 had Alefantis as 49th among the 50 most powerful people in Washington, D.C.

Though a mere pizza restaurateur, Alefantis visited the Obama White House five times. One visit was an overnighter in which Alefantis’ group of four included a male porn star. (See Yoichi Shimatsu’s “Capriccio For A Sausage Fest By Chef Alefantis – PizzaGate 8“)

Last night, I came across these two disturbing images of Barack Obama with young girls.

The first shows Obama kissing the neck of a young Asian girl on his lap. The girl is in a thigh-baring mini skirt or shorts.

If you’re the parents of this girl, would you let Obama do that, even though he’s President of the United States?

The second pic is even more disturbing. It shows Obama sticking his hand down the front of the pants of his younger daughter, Sasha, while Malia looks on.

I don’t care that he’s Sasha’s father. No dad should shove his hand down the front of his daughter’s pants, unless the child is an infant and he’s changing her diaper.

By the way, blacks have a faster biological maturity rate and reach sexual maturity earlier than other races, including earlier menstruation and breast development in the case of girls.

From William Robertson Boggs’ “Race and Physical Differences,” American Renaissance, December 1992:

“Blacks also have shorter gestation periods than whites or Asians. By the 39th week, 51 percent of black babies have been born but only 33 percent of whites. By the 40th week, the figures are 70 percent and 55 percent. Shorter gestation seems to be a characteristic of blacks that is independent of social status or access to medicine.

Prof. J. Philippe Rushton of the University of Western Ontario, who has probably studied maturation rates more extensively than anyone else, reports that rapid development of blacks continues after birth. Many African and black American newborns can hold their heads up whereas white and Asian newborns almost never can. The average age at which black children walk is 11 months, compared to 12 months for whites and 13 months for Asians.

Prof. Rushton has found that blacks reach sexual maturity earlier than whites. By age 12, 19 percent of black girls have full development of breasts and pubic hair, whereas only two percent of white girls do. Black American women menstruate at an earlier age than white women. They then go on to have sexual intercourse for the first time at an average age that is two years younger than that of whites.”

See also “Where are Obama’s daughters’ baby pics and birth records?“.


Alerted by FOTM reader MomOfIV that the Obama-Sasha pic may be photoshopped, citing a leftwing blog‘s assertion.

I scoured the net and found this version of the Obama-Sasha pic on DoNotColorMe blog, with this comment:

The Obamas returned to Chicago early Friday morning after a 12-day family vacation at a $9 million rental home in his native Hawaii.

However the January 3, 2009 blog-post does not identify the source of the pic, which means we don’t know about its authenticity either.

Let’s compare the maybe-photoshop with the above pic:

If the pic on the left is a photoshop, the way it was done was by making Sasha taller, which then obscured Michelle’s face in the back and plunged Barack’s hand down Sasha’s pants.

So how do we resolve this?

Let’s look at the height differential between Malia and Sasha.

Below is an AFP photo (source) taken of the two girls at Barack’s presidential inauguration on January 20, 2009, a couple of weeks after the Obama-Sasha pic was taken during the Obamas’ family vacation in Hawaii.

Now let’s compare the height differential between Malia and Sasha Obamas in the inauguration pic (which we know to be authentic) with the two versions of the Obama-Sasha pic:

It appears to me the Malia-Sasha height differential of the Obama-hand-down-Sasha’s-pants pic is closer to the height differential in the inauguration pic.

What do you think?


FBI claims lack of public interest as reason for not releasing files on Hillary Clinton

The fix is in.

Stephen Dinan reports for The Washington Times, Aug. 29, 2017, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) rejected a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to release the Bureau’s files on Hillary Clinton.

Incredibly, the FBI cited the American public’s lack of interest in Hillary Clinton as the reason for turning down the FOIA request.

Attorney Ty Clevenger has been trying to get Hillary and her personal lawyers disbarred for their handling of her official emails during her time as secretary of state. Clevenger has been met with resistance among lawyers, and now his request for information from the FBI’s files has been shot down.

FBI records management section chief David M. Hardy told Clevenger in a letter on August 28, 2017:

“You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject. It is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA.”

The FBI says it will only release records from its files if a subject consents, is dead, or is of such public interest that it overrides privacy concerns.

Clevenger said he thought it would have been clear why Hillary Clinton’s case is of public interest, but he sent documentation anyway, pointing to a request by members of Congress for an investigation into whether Hillary had perjured herself in testimony to Capitol Hill.

See “House Judiciary Committee asks for second special prosecutor to investigate Clinton-Comey-Lynch” and “House Republicans are going after Hillary Clinton!

Clevenger told The Washington Times:

“I’m just stunned. This is exactly what I would have expected had Mrs. Clinton won the election, but she didn’t. It looks like the Obama Administration is still running the FBI. How can a story receive national news coverage and not be a matter of public interest? If this is the new standard, then there’s no such thing as a public interest exception.”

So the FBI claims the American public are disinterested in Hillary Clinton?

Someone should show the FBI the results of a National EnquirerAmerica’s 25 most hated celebrities” poll, in which Hillary Clinton ranks as the second most hated (and Barack Obama the 5th most hated).

Let the FBI know you want to see the FBI’s files on Hillary Clinton:

UPDATE (Sept. 5, 2017)

On August 31, 2017, U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg ordered the FBI to disclose more details about how it handled its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret email account.

In doing so, Judge Boasberg overruled objections by the Trump administration that making the information public would violate grand jury secrecy rules. Boasberg said: “After reviewing the document in camera, the court concludes that it largely rehashes information already made public, thus obviating any need for secrecy.”(The Washington Times)



House Judiciary Committee asks for second special prosecutor to investigate Clinton-Comey-Lynch

House Republicans are doing their utmost to bring Hillary Clinton to justice.

On July 26, 2017, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee ingeniously turned a Democrat resolution witchhunt (HRes. 446) of President Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey inside out into an amended HRes. 446 calling for an investigation into Comey’s mishandling of the FBI’s criminal investigation into then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized private email server. (See “House Republicans are going after Hillary Clinton!”)

A day later, on July 27, Rep. Bob Goodlatte and other Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee redoubled their effort by sending a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein calling for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate matters connected to the 2016 election which are not addressed by HRes. 446 or Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, including many actions taken by Obama Administration officials like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and FBI Director James Comey.

Below is the full text of the letter:

July 27, 2017

Dear Attorney General Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein:

We are writing to you to request assistance in restoring public confidence in our nation’s justice system and its investigators, specifically the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). We need to enable these agencies to perform their necessary and important law enforcement and intelligence functions fully unhindered by politics. While we presume that the FBI’s investigation into Russian influence has been subsumed into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, we are not confident that other matters related to the 2016 election and aftermath are similarly under investigation by Special Counsel Mueller. The unbalanced, uncertain, and seemingly unlimited focus of the special counsel’s investigation has led many of our constituents to see a dual standard of justice that benefits only the powerful and politically well-connected. For this reason, we call on you to appoint a second special counsel to investigate a plethora of matters connected to the 2016 election and its aftermath, including actions taken by previously public figures like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Many Democrats and members of the Washington media previously called for a “special prosecutor” to investigate Russian influence on the election and connections with the Trump campaign. Not surprisingly, once you actually made the decision to appoint a special counsel, the calls for further investigations by congressional committees continued, focused on allegations that have heretofore produced no evidence of criminality, despite the fact that over a year has passed since the opening of the original FBI investigation. Political gamesmanship continues to saturate anything and everything associated with reactions to President Trump’s executive decisions, and reveals the hypocrisy of those who refuse to allow the Special Counsel’s investigation to proceed without undue political influence. It is an unfortunate state of affairs.

Your stated rationale for recommending Director Comey’s termination as FBI Director was his mishandling of former Secretary Clinton’s email investigation and associated public disclosures concerning the investigation’s findings. We believe this was the correct decision. It is clear that Director Comey contributed to the politicization of the FBI’s investigations by issuing his public statement, nominating himself as judge and jury, rather than permitting career DOJ prosecutors to make the final decision. But many other questions remain unanswered, due to Mr. Comey’s premature and inappropriate decision, as well as the Obama Justice Department’s refusal to respond to legitimate Congressional oversight. Last week, the Republican Members of this Committee sent a letter to the Justice Department, asking for responses to those unanswered inquiries. These questions cannot, for history’s sake and for the preservation of an impartial system of justice, be allowed to die on the vine.

It is therefore incumbent on this Committee, in our oversight capacity, to ensure that the agencies we oversee are above reproach and that the Justice Department, in particular, remains immune to accusations of politicization. Many Congressional entities have been engaged in oversight of Russian influence on the election, but a comprehensive investigation into the 2016 Presidential campaign and its aftermath must, similarly, be free of even the suggestion of political interference. The very core of our justice system demands as much. A second, newly-appointed special counsel will not be encumbered by these considerations, and will provide real value to the American people in offering an independent perspective on these extremely sensitive matters.

Our call for a special counsel is not made lightly. We have no interest in engendering more bad feelings and less confidence in the process or governmental institutions by the American people. Rather, our call is made on their behalf. It is meant to determine whether the criminal prosecution of any individual is warranted based on the solemn obligation to follow the facts wherever they lead and applying the law to those facts.

As we referenced above, Democrats and the mainstream media called for a special counsel to be appointed to investigate any Russian influence on President Trump’s campaign. Their pleas were answered, but there are many questions that may be outside the scope of Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. This was clear following Mr. Comey’s recent testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8, 2017, which ignited renewed scrutiny of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and the actions she took to mislead the public concerning the investigation into the Clinton email investigation. Last year, this Committee inquired repeatedly about the circumstances surrounding that and other matters, but our inquiries were largely ignored.

During his testimony, Mr. Comey referenced a meeting on the Phoenix airport tarmac between Ms. Lynch and former President Bill Clinton. Mr. Comey raised concerns about Ms. Lynch’s conduct, and questioned her independence, stating:

At one point, the attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me. That was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude, ‘I have to step away from the department if we’re to close this case credibly.’

In addition, in preparing to testify in front of Congress for a September 2015 hearing, Mr. Comey asked Ms. Lynch at the time whether she was prepared to refer to the Clinton investigation as just that, an “investigation.” Mr. Comey testified that Ms. Lynch said, “Yes, but don’t call it that, call it a matter.” Mr. Comey retorted, “Why would I do that?” Ms. Lynch answered, “Just call it a matter.” Mr. Comey stated that he acquiesced, but it gave him “a queasy feeling,” since it gave him the “impression that the attorney general was trying to align how we describe our work” with how the Clinton campaign was talking about it.

Notwithstanding the fact that the FBI is the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and not the Federal Bureau of Matters, one is hard-pressed to understand why Ms. Lynch directed then-Director Comey to call the Clinton investigation a “matter” unless she intended to use such deceptive language to help wrongly persuade the American people that former Secretary Clinton was not, in fact, the subject of a full-scale FBI investigation, or to otherwise undermine the integrity of the investigation.

Following Director Comey’s Senate Intelligence Committee testimony, Senator Dianne Feinstein was asked about the testimony while appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Senator Feinstein stated, “I would have a queasy feeling too, though, to be candid with you, I think we need to know more about that, and there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”

We share Senator Feinstein’s and Mr. Comey’s concerns – specifically, that during the midst of a contentious Presidential election, which was already rife with scandal arising from Secretary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information, that our nation’s chief law enforcement officer would instruct the FBI Director, her subordinate, to mislead the American public about the nature of the investigation. Following Ms. Lynch’s directive to downplay the Clinton investigation as a “matter,” Director Comey infamously terminated the Clinton investigation, stating, “[a]lthough there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”

Mr. Comey’s testimony has provided new evidence that Ms. Lynch may have used her position of authority to undermine the Clinton investigation. At any other point in history this accusation would entail a shock to the conscience of law abiding Americans who expect a DOJ free of political influence. We only have, however, an investigation into Russian influence on the 2016 election, including any ties to the Trump campaign. To limit our nation’s insight into just this this single component of the 2016 election will only cause the special counsel’s work to be derided as one-sided and incomplete. The special counsel’s work must begin and end unimpeded by political motivations on either side of the aisle. For these reasons, the following points must also be fully investigated – ideally, via a second special counsel. This is imperative to regain the cherished trust and confidence in our undoubtedly distressed law enforcement and political institutions.

We call on a newly appointed special counsel to investigate, consistent with appropriate regulations, the following questions, many of which were previously posed by this Committee and remain unanswered:

  1. Then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directing Mr. Comey to mislead the American people on the nature of the Clinton investigation;
  2. The shadow cast over our system of justice concerning Secretary Clinton and her involvement in mishandling classified information;
  3. FBI and DOJ’s investigative decisions related to former Secretary Clinton’s email investigation, including the propriety and consequence of immunity deals given to potential Clinton co-conspirators Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, John Bentel and possibly others;
  4. The apparent failure of DOJ to empanel a grand jury to investigate allegations of mishandling of classified information by Hillary Clinton and her associates;
  5. The Department of State and its employees’ involvement in determining which communications of Secretary Clinton’s and her associates to turn over for public scrutiny;
  6. WikiLeaks disclosures concerning the Clinton Foundation and its potentially unlawful international dealings;
  7. Connections between the Clinton campaign, or the Clinton Foundation, and foreign entities, including those from Russia and Ukraine;
  8. Mr. Comey’s knowledge of the purchase of Uranium One¹ by the company Rosatom, whether the approval of the sale was connected to any donations made to the Clinton Foundation, and what role Secretary Clinton played in the approval of that sale that had national security ramifications;
  9. Disclosures arising from unlawful access to the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) computer systems, including inappropriate collusion between the DNC and the Clinton campaign to undermine Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign;
  10. Post-election accusations by the President [Trump] that he was wiretapped by the previous Administration, and whether Mr. Comey and Ms. Lynch had any knowledge of efforts made by any federal agency to unlawfully monitor communications of then-candidate Trump or his associates;
  11. Selected leaks of classified information related to the unmasking of U.S. person identities incidentally collected upon by the intelligence community, including an assessment of whether anyone in the Obama Administration, including Mr. Comey, Ms. Lynch, Ms. Susan Rice, Ms. Samantha Power, or others, had any knowledge about the “unmasking” of individuals on then candidate-Trump’s campaign team, transition team, or both;
  12. Admitted leaks by Mr. Comey to Columbia University law professor, Daniel Richman, regarding conversations between Mr. Comey and President Trump, how the leaked information was purposefully released to lead to the appointment of a special counsel, and whether any classified information was included in the now infamous “Comey memos”;
  13. Mr. Comey’s and the FBI’s apparent reliance on “Fusion GPS”² in its investigation of the Trump campaign, including the company’s creation of a “dossier” of information about Mr. Trump, that dossier’s commission and dissemination in the months before and after the 2016 election, whether the FBI paid anyone connected to the dossier, and the intelligence sources of Fusion GPS or any person or company working for Fusion GPS and its affiliates; and
  14. Any and all potential leaks originated by Mr. Comey and provide to author Michael Schmidt dating back to 1993.

You have the ability now to right the ship for the American people so these investigations may proceed independently and impartially. The American public has a right to know the facts – all of them – surrounding the election and its aftermath. We urge you to appoint a second special counsel to ensure these troubling, unanswered questions are not relegated to the dustbin of history.

Note¹: Uranium One is a uranium mining company, headquartered in Toronto,  Canada. It has operations in Australia, Canada, Kazakhstan, South Africa and the United States. In January 2013, Russian state-owned enterprise Rosatom, through its subsidiary ARMZ Uranium Holding, purchased Uranium One for $1.3 billion. For Bill Clinton and John Podesta’s involvement in Uranium One and Rosatom, click here.

Note²: 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, Fusion GPS was first hired by Republicans to conduct “opposition research” on Donald Trump, which ended when Trump became the GOP’s presidential nominee. Hillary Clinton then became Fusion GPS’s client to dig up dirt on Trump. Fusion GPS hired former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele to compile a dossier on Trump, which became infamous for its entirely-fake allegation that Trump had hired Russian prostitutes to urinate (“golden shower”) on a Russian hotel bed supposedly used by Obama.

Stealth Christians and weekly Bible studies at Trump White House

One little-known fact about the Trump administration are its stealth Christians:

(1) Steve Bannon, White House Chief Strategist, is described by a friend as “non-practicing orthodox Catholic”.

(2) Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to the President, who grew up in poverty in New Jersey, raised by her mother after her parents divorced when Kellyanne was only three, attends daily Mass.

(3) Ryan Zinke, Secretary of the Interior, wore a pair of socks with the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to his Senate confirmation hearing.

(4) First Lady Melania Trump is a practicing Catholic. On February 18, 2017, Melania kicked off a rally at Orlando-Melbourne Airport in Florida by reciting the Lord’s Prayer. On May 24, 2017, after she asked Pope Francis to bless her rosary, then prayed in the chapel of the Bambin Gesù (Baby Jesus) pediatric hospital where she visited the young patients and their families, her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed that Melania indeed is Catholic — the first Catholic First Lady since Jackie Kennedy.

The latest news is sure to make the Left’s heads explode even more — the Trump White House hosts Cabinet Bible Study meetings!

Jennifer Wishon reports for CBN News, July 31, 2017:

“A spiritual awakening is underway at the White House.

Some of the most powerful people in America have been gathering weekly to learn more about God’s Word, and this Trump Cabinet Bible study is making history.

They’ve been called the most evangelical Cabinet in history – men and women who don’t mince words when it comes to where they stand on God and the Bible.”

Ralph Drollinger, a former NBA-player who founded the evangelical Capitol Ministries — Bible studies in 40 state capitols, a number of foreign capitols, as well as weekly studies in the U.S. House and Senate — now leads about a dozen members of President Trump’s Cabinet in weekly studies of the scriptures.

Some of the regulars are Health Secretary Tom Price, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Agriculture Secretary Sunny Perdue,  CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Drollinger said he doesn’t think a formal Bible study among executive Cabinet members has been done in at least 100 years:

“It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they’re so noble; they’re so learned. He’ll (Jeff Sessions) go out the same day I teach him something and I’ll see him do it on camera and I just think, ‘Wow, these guys are faithful, available and teachable and they’re at Bible study every week they’re in town.'”

President Trump, a lifelong Presbyterian, is invited to attend the Bible studies; each week he receives a copy of Drollinger’s teaching. Vice President Pence is a sponsor of the Cabinet Bible studies and plans to join the study as his schedule permits.

What a refreshing change from the Obama administration’s voodoo incantations in the White House, a crypto Muslim POTUS, and a Muslim CIA director (John Brennan).


President Trump forms special strike force against Chicago’s homicide epidemic

Throughout the Obama years, nearly every week FOTM‘s DCG has been chronicling the city of Chicago’s doleful shooting homicide statistics, the most recent being today’s post, “This is Chiraq: More than 100 shot over Fourth of July Weekend“.

Those statistics clearly demonstrate that the gun-control city’s epidemic of murder and shooting is beyond the control of both the city government, headed by useless mayor Rahm Emanuel, as well as the Illinois state government.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump had indicated that if elected, he would do something to help America’s black inner cities. Singling out Chicago, Trump promised he would send in “the Feds” to help reduce the city’s murder rate.

Now, the federal government finally is doing something to help Chicago, no thanks to Barack Obama, who began his political career and rise in Chicago — the birthplace of his wife, Michelle.

Fox News reports that on June 30, 2017, decrying the crime epidemic on Chicago streets, President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the federal government is sending about 20 additional U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents the city.

Trump tweeted that “Crime and killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in Federal help. 1714 shootings in Chicago this year!”

For his part, AG Sessions told “Fox & Friends” that Chicago police are “demoralized” and city politics are not working, and that the Department of Justice is assisting: “We’ll have an impact in reducing shootings in Chicago. Murders are way, way too high.”

Sessions subsequently released a written statement saying “The Trump Administration will not let the bloodshed go on; we cannot accept these levels of violence,” and that the Trump administration has created the Chicago Gun Strike Force and is sending “20 more permanent ATF agents to Chicago, reallocating federal prosecutors and prioritizing prosecutions to reduce gun violence” and working with law enforcement partners.

The new set of ATF agents will work with counterparts from the Chicago Police Department and Illinois State Police on the new Chicago Gun Strike Force to solve shootings and arrest gun traffickers, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Included in the strike force are prosecutors from the U.S. attorney’s office and Cook County state’s attorney’s office, who will decided whether suspects in gun crime should be charged in state or federal court. Anthony Riccio, head of the Chicago Police Department’s organized crime unit, said: “The goal is the prosecute as many of these guys as possible federally where they will serve longer prison terms.
