Obama State Dept in Contact with Fusion GPS

Following Hillary’s launch into the 2016 campaign trail, her deputy at the State Department, Victoria Nuland, just happened to be in contact with Fusion GPS cofounder Glenn Simpson. From a batch of roughly a dozen “Russia collusion” interviews conducted with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr–whose wife worked for Fusion GPS and who acted as “middleman”–comes this gem written by an FBI agent: “Ohr knew Glenn Simpson and others were talking to Victoria Nuland at the State Department.” The date: November 22, 2016. What did Team Obama know, and when did they know it?

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Victoria Nuland, a former Hillary Clinton associate who served as a senior official in John Kerry’s State Department, was in communication with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, according to a newly released FBI document.

The controversial Fusion GPS opposition research firm infamously produced the Christopher Steele dossier alleging now debunked Russian collision charges and was paid for its anti-Trump work by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Any connection between Nuland and Fusion GPS would raise further questions about the role of the Obama-era State Department in fueling the Russia collision conspiracy, especially with regard to facilitating Steele’s unsubstantiated claims.

Beto vs. Flat Tire

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke (TX) is trying feverishly to put those long, flailing arms to work repairing his failing image…by fixing a flat tire with cameras at the ready. Previous attempts to salvage his flatlined polling and fund-raising efforts include live streaming his haircuts, answering questions in Spanish, and, of course, standing atop flat surfaces in coffeehouses and cafes. In the words of a Daily Beast article regarding desperate Beto’s bids for attention, “You bet he got up on that counter.” Rest assured, though, in a field of two dozen candidates, Beto’s flash in the pan is all heat and no sizzle. He’s done.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

In the perfect metaphor for his presidential campaign, which started like a hot-air balloon soaring into the sky supported by all the hot air the Left could muster but is now flat as a balloon punctured by the reality that he is a political lightweight who is flailing about in any way he can to draw attention to himself, former Congressman and current failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke released another video to try to bolster his image: fixing a flat tire on a truck.

Last December, in a straw poll of members of MoveOn.org, first obtained by NBC News, O’Rourke led the field at 15.6%, with former vice president Joe Biden close behind at 14.9%. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) came in third at 13.1%. NBC reported, “It’s another sign of O’Rourke’s surprising popularity among national Democrats and a potentially troubling indication for Sanders, whom MoveOn endorsed in the 2016 Democratic primary.

Ohr Interview Reveals Clinton Collusion

Analysis of an FBI agent’s interview with then Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr obtained by Judicial Watch reveals that Hillary Clinton’s deep state operatives deliberately fed the FBI false information on President Trump and his aides “in the months following his election,” according to a Washington Times report. “These new Bruce Ohr FBI 302s show an unprecedented and irregular effort by the FBI, DOJ, and State Department to dig up dirt on President Trump using the conflicted Bruce Ohr, his wife, and the Clinton/DNC spies at Fusion GPS,” blasted Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. We’re shocked-SHOCKED-to learn that Robert Mueller’s final report on “Russia collusion” didn’t spill a single drop of ink on the role of Fusion GPS and Mr. Steele in setting up the FBI investigation against President Trump.

Here’s more from Washington Times…

Hillary Clinton operatives fed the FBI false information on President Trump and his aides in the months following his election, according to an analysis of an FBI agent’s interview with a key conduit.

The agent’s interview notes (known as 302s) of Bruce Ohr, then an associate deputy attorney general in the Department of Justice, were obtained by the conservative investigative group Judicial Watch.

“These new Bruce Ohr FBI 302s show an unprecedented and irregular effort by the FBI, DOJ, and State Department to dig up dirt on President Trump using the conflicted Bruce Ohr, his wife, and the Clinton/DNC spies at Fusion GPS,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Graham Promises ObamaCare Repeal

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has promised that Washington will finally pull the plug on ObamaCare if President Trump wins reelection and Republicans win back control of both chambers of Congress. “If we can get the House back and keep our majority in the Senate and President Trump wins reelection, I can promise you not only are we going to repeal ObamaCare, we’re going to do it in a smart way where South Carolina will be the biggest winner.” Graham’s alternate plan includes shifting federally redistributed money “back to the states” in order to test Democratic policies against Republican ones. But we’ve heard that before. We’re not holding our breath.

Here’s more from The Hill…

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said this week that Republicans would push to repeal ObamaCare if they win back the House and President Trump is reelected in 2020.

“If we can get the House back and keep our majority in the Senate, and President Trump wins reelection, I can promise you not only are we going to repeal ObamaCare, we’re going to do it in a smart way where South Carolina will be the biggest winner,” Graham said in an interview with a South Carolina radio station.

“We’ve got to remind people that we’re not for ObamaCare.”

Gun Grab Coming in September

Be ready to “cling to your guns and Constitution” because according to Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), “assault weapons” ban legislation is coming in fast and furious in September when Congress returns from recess. Along with an attack on scary-looking guns, background checks and “red flag” laws are also up for consideration. During an appearance on the Louisville, Kentucky, Terry Meiners Show, McConnell made it clear that something will pass commenting, “What we can’t do is fail to pass something.”

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) indicated an “assault weapons” ban and other gun controls would be “front and center” when the Senate reconvenes in September.

The Courier-Journal reports that McConnell was a guest on the Louisville, KY, Terry Meiners Show where he said, “What we can’t do is fail to pass something,” adding, “The urgency of this is not lost on any of us.”

NPR reports that McConnell addressed an “assault weapons” ban, saying: “We had that ban for about a 10-year period. There’s a good deal of dispute about whether it actually had an impact or not.

Biden: “We Choose Truth over Facts”

Joe Biden attempted to woo a crowd on Tuesday with an astounding claim: “We choose science over fiction; we choose truth over facts.” The comment was ostensibly in reference to recent shootings in which the Left has–per usual–used the occasion as yet another opportunity for knee-jerk political stunts for massive gun regulations. Meanwhile, conservatives will continue with a preference for facts, particularly those that demonstrate time and again in such places as Chicago that gun regulations serve only to ensure that law-abiding citizens have no means of self-defense. Psst. Hey, Lefties, here’s a secret: criminals don’t obey laws.

Here’s more from Free Beacon…

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told a crowd of supporters on Tuesday that “we choose truth over facts,” apparently referring to the Democratic Party.

“We choose science over fiction; we choose truth over facts,” Biden said, drawing applause.

The former vice president has a history of tripping over his words.

Biden continues to hold a formidable lead in national Democratic primary polls. He leads the next two closest opponents, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I, Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), by over 15 percentage points.

Soros’s Deep State Access Exposed

Newly released State Department memos reveal just how entrenched left-wing billionaire George Soros is in the Deep State freak show with what The Hill describes as “extraordinary access” to the Obama administration. Such unfettered access included repeated calls, emails, and meeting requests with then Assistant Secretary of State Victory Nuland, even sending “briefings” her way to let the Obama State Department know exactly where Soros stood on issues, such as Russia’s threat to Soros’s plans for Ukraine. And who could forget that a Soros nonprofit “discovered” documents linking then Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort to Ukraine’s Russia-friendly oligarchs–foes to the Soros agenda–just as the collusion witch hunt got off the ground.

Here’s more from The Hill…

Liberal mega-donor George Soros made some big bets during the last U.S. presidential election. One was that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency. Another was that he could reshape Ukraine’s government to his liking, and that his business empire might find fertile ground in that former Soviet state.

So when Donald Trump’s improbable march to the White House picked up steam in the spring of 2016, Team Soros marched to the top of the State Department to protect some of those investments, according to newly released department memos providing a rare glimpse into the Democratic donor’s extraordinary access to the Obama administration.

Then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland received repeated calls, emails and meeting requests from Soros, according to the memos obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the conservative group Citizens United.

Democrats Quietly go “Fishing” for Kavanaugh

If you thought Democrats were ready to let go of their intrinsic partisan hatred of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, think again. House Judiciary Committee chairman Representative Jerry Nadler (D-CA) and Representative Henry Johnson (D-GA) just asked the National Archives to release more documents related to Kavanaugh’s service during the George W. Bush administration. “Chairman Nadler’s request is so far outside the scope of judicial ethics, it’s harassment,” said Representative Doug Collins, the committee’s ranking Republican, who went on to slam the move as a “fishing expedition.” Pelosi’s minions are already well beyond political precedent for going after a GOP nominee…after he’s been confirmed to the Court. This is a chicken that will come home to roost next year.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee asked the National Archives Tuesday to release documents from Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s service in the George W. Bush White House.

The request tracks Democratic promises to scrutinize Kavanaugh even after his confirmation to the Supreme Court.

“The Senate Judiciary Committee received only a small fraction of Justice Kavanaugh’s White House records before voting on his nomination,” Democratic Reps. Jerry Nadler of California and Henry Johnson of Georgia wrote in a letter to the Archives. Nadler chairs the Judiciary Committee, while Johnson leads a subcommittee that oversees the federal bench.

Beto Supports Gun Confiscation

In case anyone was wondering, yes, White House wannabe “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) confirms his plans to confiscate our guns. In a recent interview, the arm-waving Texan revealed his support for gun licensing and mandatory buybacks. “At the end of the day, if it’s going to save lives, if it’s going to prevent the kinds of tragedies that we saw in El Paso, Gilroy, and Dayton…then let’s move forward and do it.” We hasten to remind Beto that Chicago and California have failed to stop mass shootings despite some of the most draconian licensing regulations and purchasing requirements.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke told podcast host Jon Favreau that he supports the idea of making gun licensing and mandatory buybacks part of the conversation revolving around the El Paso and Dayton shootings.

Favreau commented on gun licensing and mandatory buybacks in Australia and asked if O’Rourke would support them as president?

O’Rourke responded, “Yes. And I’m open to them right now as a candidate.”

AOC’s Top Staffer Resigns Suddenly

Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff for socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), resigned suddenly on Friday. He’s under federal investigation for possible campaign finance violations following complaints by the National Legal and Policy Center. From the New York Post: “The two PACs being probed…funneled more than $1 million in political donations into two private companies that Chakrabarti also incorporated and controlled…” This could blow back on AOC with potential allegations of income tax evasion and fraud. Birds of a feather.

Here’s more from The Blaze…

The controversial chief of staff for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who suddenly resigned Friday, is under federal investigation, a new report reveals.

According to the New York Post, the Federal Election Commission is investigating Saikat Chakrabarti for possible campaign finance violations, potentially shedding new light on his sudden departure from Ocasio-Cortez’s office.

The investigation comes after government watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center filed complaints with the FEC in March, alleging Chakrabarti created shell companies to circumvent strict federal guidelines governing PAC finances and disclosure requirements.
