Obama Admin Stopped Video During Collusion Meetings

More damning evidence of wrongdoing at the highest levels of the U.S. government-up to and including former President Barack Obama-is beginning to snowball into one glaring verdict: the only “collusion” in the run-up to the 2016 election was by the Deep State Democrats against then candidate President Trump. “It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted. It was sort of an ad hoc small group-and most of these people are no longer with the FBI or the CIA or the other agencies involved,” Attorney General Bill Barr told Fox News on Friday. “I think there’s a misconception out there that we know a lot about what happened. The fact of the matter is Bob Mueller did not look at the government’s activities.” Namely, Mueller did not consider who or why Obama cut off the situation room video feed during meetings regarding the Russia collusion investigation to keep their conversations compartmentalized from the broader intelligence community. What’s more, four key Obama officials were involved: Brennan, Clapper, Lynch, and Comey. And surprise, surprise: NO WITNESSES WERE ALLOWED!

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Comments made by Attorney General William Barr about extraordinary arrangements regarding the original handling of the Russia investigation may take on more significance in light of a previous report showing a high and unusual degree of compartmentalization in the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial intel set up of the Russia probe.

In an interview with Fox News that aired Friday, Barr commented that the intelligence community’s early handling of the Russia investigation may raise questions. He noted it was first handled at a “very senior level” and then by a “small group.”

Barr stated:

The thing that’s interesting about this is that this was handled at a very senior level of these departments. It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted.

Another Facebook “Hate Agent” Revealed

Breitbart just released another bombshell on Facebook’s “Hate Agents” internal list: conservative author and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel. Facebook has already confessed that the list is divided into three levels tracking its users’ “signals” as far back as three years. According to the spreadsheet, Gabriel was specifically flagged for “1 lifetime deletion for hate speech-dehumanizing” after speaking at a Christians United for Israel event where she referred to “Arabs as Barbarians” in the context of giving martyrdom status to suicide bombers who kill Jews. This is just one small facet of the Silicon Left’s censorship of the Right ahead of 2020.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Lebanese-American conservative author and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel is also on an internal list of “Hate Agents” maintained by Facebook, Breitbart News can exclusively reveal.

Breitbart News exposed the existence of the “Hate Agents” list last week, after a Facebook insider leaked a partial screenshot showing black conservative leader Candace Owens was also on the list. The insider, who leaked the information to Breitbart, also shared a partial image of the list.

Following the leak, Facebook admitted that the list exists, but stressed that Owens had not yet been investigated.

Progressives Purging Pro-Life Democrats

The radical abortion-on-demand Leftists leading the Congressional Progressive Caucus are now targeting the five remaining pro-life Democrats in Congress. CPC cochair Representative Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) argued, “You can’t say you’re a Democrat if you’re against immigrants, if you’re against abortion, if you’re against gay marriage, and LGBTQ rights. I’m not sure what it means to be a Democrat if all of those things are true.” Ye, somehow it’s conservatives who are intolerant, doctrinaire, and fascist. Funny how that works. This trend will only push what’s left of the more centrist, traditional Democrats to the GOP side of the ledger.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are demanding that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee abandon its support of the five remaining pro-life Democrats in Congress and allow abortion advocates to compete for their seats.

Newsweek reports that the CPC’s co-chair, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), has now said, in no uncertain terms, that Democrats who do not support the practice of ending unborn life in the womb are no longer welcome in the party, and that they should be primaried out of office by more reliable Democrats.

“I think we should allow for strong primary challenges, so that people can really put their Democratic chops on the line, if you will, and let the Democratic voters decide who they want,” Jayapal told a press conference. “You can’t say you’re a Democrat if you’re against immigrants, if you’re against abortion, if you’re against gay marriage and LGBTQ rights. I’m not sure what it means to be a Democrat if all of those things are true.”

Poll: 2-in-3 Americans Oppose “Catch-and-Release”

The latest Harvid/Harris Poll confirms that a clear majority of Americans reject releasing illegal immigrants into the interior of the United States to await their asylum court hearings. Instead, 2-in-3 Americans think self-proclaimed asylum seekers should be immediately turned back to their country of origin to await a hearing from the other side of the border. Per the poll, less than 35% of all voters support such “catch and release” practices by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The poll also reveals that 47% want the asylum system fixed to stop massive fraud and abuse of America’s generosity. Ahead of the 2020 election, these numbers do not bode well for Democratic hopefuls.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The majority of American voters oppose releasing border crossers applying for asylum into the interior of the United States while they await their court hearings, a new poll finds.

The latest Harvard/Harris Poll reveals that about 2-in-3 Americans, or 66 percent, said they oppose the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) releasing border crossers into the U.S. while they await their asylum claims process. Instead, voters said border crossers should be immediately turned back to Mexico while awaiting their asylum hearing.

Less than 35 percent of all voters said they supported releasing border crossers into the U.S. — including only 32 percent of swing voters and less than 30 percent of self-described “moderates.”

Poll: America Supports Fetal Heartbeat Protections

A new Hill/HarrisX survey reveals that a majority of Americans support banning abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, much to the consternation of those now determined to defeat Georgia’s latest legislative victory to protect innocent life. According to the poll, 55% of voters believe fetal heartbeat bills or other six-week abortion ban measures are either “just right” or do not go far enough. Alternately, 45% of those polled call such measures “too restrictive.” When split by age groups, younger voters were revealed as more likely to support fetal heartbeat protections. This comes as a massive blow to the pro-abort Left, who are clearly losing the culture war on abortion.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Among all the hullabaloo over the state of Alabama’s new, strict pro-life law, it is almost easy to forget that the hot-button abortion topic prior to this week was actually Georgia’s slightly less strict pro-life law which would ban all abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected (typically around six weeks). The Daily Wire previously explained the Georgia legislation, which has since been signed into law by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp:

H.B. 481 states that the “full value of a child begins when a heartbeat exists” and requires “physicians performing abortions to determine the existence of a detectable human heartbeat before performing an abortion,” stating, “it shall be the policy of the State of Georgia to recognize unborn children as natural persons,” and asserting “unless otherwise provided by law, any natural person, including an unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat, shall be included in population based determinations.”

IG Probe into FISA Abuse “Devastating”

Fox News’ Sean Hannity reported to viewers on Wednesday that his sources reveal that not only is Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz “done” investigating anti-Trump FISA abuse but also that the findings are “devastating.” Hannity’s comments follow the announcement by Attorney General Bill Barr of his appointment of Connecticut Attorney General John Durham to dig into the “Deep State” collusion against then candidate Donald Trump and his 2016 presidential campaign. This might explain why House Democrats have ratcheted up their campaign to investigate President Trump in hopes of distracting from what is almost certain to evolve into a Watergate-level conspiracy just in time for the 2020 election.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Conservative commentator Sean Hannity said on his Fox News program Wednesday night that his sources say the Justice Department inspector general’s investigation into abuse by the FBI of FISA warrants to surveil the Trump campaign is “done” — and “it’s devastating.” The conservative host’s comments come a few days after it was revealed that Attorney General William Barr has appointed Connecticut’s top prosecutor John Durham to investigate the increasingly suspicious origins of the Trump-Russia probe amid new troubling revelations.

In comments reported by the Washington Examiner, Hannity first brought up Inspector General Michael Horowitiz’s FISA abuse probe in a discussion with Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett and Fox contributor former Rep. Jason Chaffetz. “I have sources telling me that Horowitz perhaps is even finished with his report and certainly [Attorney General William Barr] has been briefed on what is coming,” said Hannity.

Comey: Brennan Pushed “Pee” Dossier in 2016

An email chain from late 2016 shows disgraced former FBI Director James Comey telling his staff that Obama loyalist CIA Director John Brennan insisted that the anti-Trump Steele “pee” dossier be included in the January 6, 2017, U.S. Intelligence Community report, which kicked off the Russia collusion investigation. That same document, despite never being verified, was successfully used to obtain three of the four FISA warrants-with Comey signing ALL of the applications-used to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. This revelation adds more fuel to the fire raging that may take down numerous former Obama officials with a conspiracy now involving several agencies, namely the DOJ, CIA, and Department of State.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Disgraced ex-FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director turned anti-Trump activist John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence and Trump critic James Clapper are the subjects of a dispute over which top Obama administration officials advocated for the infamous Steele dossier to be utilized as evidence in the Russia collusion investigation.

The argument erupted into the open with a Brennan surrogate being quoted in the news media opposing Comey not long after Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion claims.

The fiasco was kicked into high gear after Fox News cited “sources familiar with the records” pointing to an email chain from late-2016 showing Comey allegedly telling FBI employees that it was Brennan who insisted that the anti-Trump dossier be included in a January 6, 2017 U.S. Intelligence Community report, known as the ICA, assessing Russian interference efforts.

Biden Says Gore Won 2000 Election

Joe Biden is climbing aboard the Left’s election loss denial bandwagon, claiming that Al Gore did NOT lose the 2000 presidential election. Biden’s fomenting of political conspiracy came during a conversation about his 1990s crime bill with voters in Nashua, New Hampshire. Predictably, he blamed President George W. Bush for crime getting worse… before alleging the former president did not actually win the 2000 election. “I wouldn’t say lost, when a hanging chad sort of did a few things,” quipped Biden. Naturally, he conveniently forgot about the investigation in 2001, which concluded that Bush won fair and square even without the Supreme Court upholding his victory.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Former Vice President Joe Biden dipped into election conspiracy territory on Tuesday, arguing that former Vice President Al Gore did not lose the presidential election in 2000.

During a conversation about his nineties-era crime bill, Biden said that it got worse after Gore lost the election.

“I wouldn’t say lost, when a hanging chad sort of did a few things,” he said to voters in Nashua, New Hampshire at a campaign stop.

Biden’s remark continues a history of doubt that Biden has cast on the results of the 2000 election.

In 2013, then-Vice President Biden insisted to Gore during a fundraiser that he had actually won the 2000 election.

Rosenstein Blasts Comey for Overt Bias

Former Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein slammed ousted FBI Director James Comey Monday during remarks to the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC). He specifically went after Comey for his recent attack on both Rosenstein and Attorney General Bill Barr, alleging they lacked the “inner strength” to “resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump.” Rosenstein pushed back, arguing that Comey’s overt bias and undermining the integrity of the Russia and Hillary Clinton investigations trampled “bright lines that should never be crossed.” The Deep State continues intramural war like crabs in a bucket, and with AG Barr’s special investigator, things will only get worse for them. Get your popcorn ready.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Rod Rosenstein unloaded on former FBI Director James Comey in remarks to the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) on Monday evening, slamming Comey’s turn as a “partisan pundit,” reiterating that he deserved to be fired, and faulting him for trampling “bright lines that should never be crossed.”

Rosenstein formally stepped aside as deputy attorney general two days ago. His speech specifically took aim at Comey’s comments earlier this month implying that Rosenstein and Attorney General Bill Barr lacked the “inner strength” to “resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump.”

Comey also derided Rosenstein’s “character” and suggested his “soul” had been consumed “in small bites.” The former FBI boss, who has taken to posting numerous photographs of himself in nature staring wistfully at trees and roadways since leaving public office, had been showered with media attention in recent months, and his memoir earned him over $2 million.

Obama Tracked Hillary Email FOIA Request

The government watchdogs at Judicial Watch just released a batch of emails, which were obtained only after suing the federal government, that show the Obama White House monitored a critical FOIA request for Hillary Clinton’s personal emails. This is the same request that was ultimately rejected by the State Department in 2013, claiming that no such records existed. “These documents suggest the Obama White House knew about the Clinton email lies being told to the public at least as early as December 2012,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton revealed. It was only publicly revealed in March 2015 by the New York Times that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton illegally used a personal email account on her secret server-yet another smoking gun in the hands of the Obama White House.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

The Obama White House kept tabs on a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email accounts that the State Department improperly denied, according to newly released emails.

The emails, which were provided to Judicial Watch, show for the first time that the Obama White House was aware of the Clinton-related FOIA request, which the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) submitted to the State Department in December 2012.

The State Department denied the request in May 2013, claiming that no responsive records existed. That despite officials at the State Department, the White House and even President Obama himself knowing that Clinton used a personal email account for government business.
