Exposing Mainstream Media lies about Puerto Rico & The US Virgin Islands! The Alt-Left Media has no shame, no credibility. It is just a propaganda tool!

Dispelling The Myth That Trump Is Ignoring Puerto Rico & The US Virgin Islands

This is what real journalism looks like:

I’ll start off with the most credible source of this information; the Governor of Puerto Rico who served as a Hillary delegate at one point and is a Democrat. The Governor has been fighting back against this myth that Puerto Rico has been abandoned by the Federal government and praising Trump’s support for the territory. https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/09/25/puerto-ricos-governor-dismantles-media-attacks-trumps-response-hurricane-irma/

Trump was on Twitter as recently as yesterday trying to bring more attention to the fact that Puerto Rico, despite being a US territory, is way behind US states in forms of infrastructure and finances. They simply have too much debt to deal with to financially handle a disaster of this scale on their own. (For those that didn’t know, this is one of the chief reasons they are not a State.) https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/912478274508423168

FEMA has been operating on a 24 hour schedule in Puerto Rico and the USVI since at least 23 September. They have successfully reopened five airports in Puerto Rico and two airports in the USVI airports deliver supplies and aid. FEMA is being supported by the Defense Logistics Agency, USNORTHCOM, US Navy, and USCG. Two USCG cutters are conducting port assessments of St. John and St. Thomas. The port of San Juan was reopened by 23 September. FEMA has been delivering approximately 100,000 meals per day to St. Croix, the SS Wright delivered 1,100,000 meals and 1,000,000L of water by 5am 23 September, Two more shipping barges delivered another 1,200,000L of water, 31 generators, and 6,000 cots to St. Thomas. https://www.fema.gov/news-release/2017/09/23/federal-government-moving-resources-support-puerto-rico-and-us-virgin

There are thousands of federal staff, including more than 500 FEMA personnel, on the ground in Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands supporting response and recovery operations from Hurricanes Maria and Irma. 8 FEMA Urban Search & Rescue task forces are stationed and conducting operations in the Caribbean. FEMA US&R task forces have saved or assisted 557 individuals and two pets, while searching over 2,600 structures as of September 26.

The federal government is working with its interagency and private sector partners to support availability, transportation and delivery of fuel, based on priorities identified by Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The federal support for fuel transportation includes air and sea logistical support by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), U.S. Northern Command, the U.S. Navy, and U.S. Coast Guard, in coordination with the private sector.

Power is restored to Centro Médico Hospital in San Juan and San Pablo Hospital in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. The Governor Juan F. Luis Hospital in St. Croix and the Schneider Regional Medical Center in St. Thomas are re-energized and re-established as mobile hospitals.

The ports of San Juan, Fajardo, Culebra, Guayanilla, Salinas, Tallaboa, and Vieques are now open for daylight operations in Puerto Rico. The ports of Crown Bay, East Gregerie Channel, West Gregerie Channel, and Redhook Bay on St. Thomas, the ports of Krause Lagoon, Limetree Bay, and Frederiksted on St. Croix, and the port of Cruz Bay on St. John are open with restrictions.

FEMA, working in coordination with federal partners, provided has provided more than 4 million meals, 6 million liters of water, nearly 300 infant and toddler kits, and 70,000 tarps and 15,000 rolls of roof sheeting to the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria’s landfall.

An additional 7 million meals and 4 million liters of water are en route by barge to the islands, with additional federal supplies and contract support coming.

Mobile Emergency Response Support (MERS) communications assets and personnel continue to support FEMA Incident Management Assistance Team (IMAT), Urban Search and Rescue (US&R), National Disaster Medical System (NDMS), and other federal teams in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. An additional MERS team is scheduled to arrive Monday.

More than 100 satellite phones are en route to Puerto Rico to help address communications needs on the ground.

FEMA’s National Business Emergency Operations Center (NBEOC) is facilitating private sector requests for humanitarian relief. The NBEOC continues coordination between government and private sector organizations as the community responds to Hurricanes Maria and Irma.

Other federal agencies are taking the following actions:

For the first time since Hurricane Irma struck, there will be mail service in the U.S. Virgin Islands Tuesday. The Cruz Bay Post Office in St. John will be provide mail service Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. In St. Thomas, more packages and mail are being brought in for Tuesday.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued an order on September 24 authorizing FEMA and DoD to install and operate temporary water treatment units to provide clean water in the U.S. Virgin Islands to address concerns about a lack of clean alternative water supplies.

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the DoD conducted medical evacuations for more than 150 patients from the islands to the continental United States. Medical evacuations from the islands will continue. A U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) mobile communications team arrived in Puerto Rico to help improve communications across the storm-impacted area. USCG personnel continue to deliver critical FEMA relief supplies to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) deployed debris experts to assist FEMA with debris management strategies in Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands completed a Blue Roof install on Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas, and completed its first residential Blue Roof install on September 23. Installations began on St. Croix Sunday, September 24.

Additionally, USACE has 86 generators on hand in Puerto Rico and St. Thomas with more than 186 additional generators en route. USACE and other supporting agencies have completed nine temporary power installs on Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and completed more than 100 inspections.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) operations personnel are onsite in St. Thomas to evaluate, fix, and install FAA equipment, in support of air traffic control operations.

The National Guard Bureau (NGB) has thousands of Guard members on the ground in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands taking part in security and support operations. The Air National Guard is focused on transporting food, water, and communications capabilities as well as rapidly increasing airlift into affected areas.

Customs and Border Protection airplanes and helicopters are assisting with conducting damage assessment and search and rescue missions.

More than 180 Federal Law Enforcement Officers are in San Juan and the U.S. Virgin Islands supporting search and rescue, medical teams, and other federal responders.

The U.S. Coast Guard is operating nine cutters in the vicinity of Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands, bringing helicopter SAR support, while teams from CBP are operating two P-3 maritime patrol aircraft to assist in communications, a wide-area search, and distress signal monitoring capabilities. An additional five flight deck-equipped cutters, five patrol boats, four rotary wing, and one fixed wing aircraft are moving to the vicinity of U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico to further support search and rescue efforts.

The National Guard Bureau (NGB) has more than 2,300 Guard members on the ground in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands taking part in security and support operations. The Air National Guard is focused on transporting food, water, and communications capabilities as well as rapidly increasing airlift into affected areas.

FEMA, working in coordination with federal partners, provided more than 1.5-million meals, 1.1-million liters of water, nearly 300 infant and toddler kits, and nearly 12,000 emergency roofing kits to the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico for distribution to the public since Hurricane Maria’s landfall.

https://www.fema.gov/news-release/2017/09/24/federal-response-teams-assisting-puerto-rico-and-us-virgin-islands

Thanks to the Coast Guard’s efforts, the mission-critical port of San Juan has reopened (with restrictions and for daylight transit only). The port is a crucial lifeline for Puerto Rico, which gets most of its supplies from the U.S. mainland. Early reports indicate that about 80 percent of the island’s agriculture was wiped out in the storm, which will raise the importance of food aid and commercial food shipments. In the USVI, most ports on St. Thomas and St. Croix have reopened with restrictions, along with Cruz Bay on St. John. http://www.maritime-executive.com/article/recovery-effort-ramps-up-in-puerto-rico

Before Maria USCG assets and personnel were strategically positioned with relief supplies, including water, in areas near the USVI and Puerto Rico.

USCG said the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Donald Horsley are en route from Curaçao to Puerto Rico and USVI with more than 800 gallons of bottled water. Air crews from USCG Sector Southeast in Miami are being deployed for search and rescue missions, and other resources will be delivered as needed by further assets and personnel.

Coast Guard personnel have been responding to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma and to Hurricane Maria for days.

Famous “Fake News” writer Paul Horner found dead outside Phoenix

Hillary Suggests Trump Might Kill Journalists. Next Day Paul Horner Turns Up Dead

Well, his first two cited “Fake News” stories may be true. Hmm. Where was Hillary’s death squad this week?

From the AP: A leading purveyor of fake news in the 2016 presidential election has died outside Phoenix at the age of 38.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mark Casey said Tuesday authorities discovered Paul Horner dead in his bed on Sept. 18.

Casey said the Maricopa County medical examiner performed an autopsy which showed there were no signs of foul play. He said Horner had a history of prescription drug abuse and that “evidence at the scene suggested this could be an accidental overdose.”

Horner was known for writing false stories and disseminating internet hoaxes that often went viral on Facebook and hoodwinked thousands of people.

They included a story falsely claiming President Barack Obama was gay and a radical Muslim, and another saying protesters were being paid thousands of dollars to demonstrate at Donald Trump’s campaign rallies.

Hillary Clinton Compares Trump To Putin: “Hopefully” He Hasn’t Ordered Killing Of Journalists

Yeah, you gotta draw the line at murdering journalists. Oh wait, does anybody else recall Hillary asking Obama, about Julian Assange, “Can’t we just drone this guy?”

 

 

 

 

 

Is Google A Creation Of The United States Intelligence Community?

 Political  Comments Off on Is Google A Creation Of The United States Intelligence Community?

Does Google exist purely to filter and control information that the general public can access – filtering out the truth by labeling it ‘Fake News’?

Is Google A Creation Of United States Intelligence Community?

The United States intelligence community may have funded, nurtured and incubated Google as part of a drive to dominate the world through control of information. Google could be the first among a plethora of private sector start-ups co-opted by US intelligence to retain ‘Information Superiority’.

From New Eastern Outlook:

If you need proof beyond the obvious, Google’s 160-page handbook tells us all exactly how they plan to spoon feed us only “their” news. The lengthy handbook is a heavy read for the average person, but the book does lay out an Orwellian machination unlike anything seen since the Nazi propaganda machine of Hitler. Pay close attention to the “instructional” on page 108 where Google dictates who does and does not meet rating criteria. The section under Fails to Meet (FailsM) is a steamrolling of the free press, and suggested hiding certain kinds of sites:

“Pages that directly contradict well established historical facts (e.g., unsubstantiated conspiracy theories), unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”

Google FailsM

As per usual, Google has obscured its real intentions with the idea some super smart algorithm is “filtering” or “learning” results to help your life be better. Once again Google supposes to do “what is good for us” by destroying some sources and propping up others. Using terms like “search quality rating guidelines” and “page quality rating guidelines” the little Machiavellis at Google provide justification for controlling what you see and read on the web. Censorship and monopolization of internet information and business – this is the case against the Mountain View boys this time.

Then there’s the section concerning how Google will rank the best of the best news sites entitled “A High Level of Expertise/Authoritativeness/Trustworthiness (EAT)”. The acronym should clue you that Google search users are about to be fed some bullshit truth. “High Quality Pages” for the Google oligarchs means that either the page owner pays Google through the mouth, or that the site in question serves Google’s masters well – period. At the top of this matrix of sources are newspapers (High News 1) like The Washington Post and New York Times, followed by the articles within those pages (High News 2). On down the list of authority pages are government sites like the US State Department and White House, and then pages categorized (believe it or not) “High Humor”. So, Google has factored out the importance of truth or even the importance of the news story itself, in favor of “who” wrote the story and the “reality” Google wants you to accept – Big Brother’s network – end of story.

Melissa Dykes of Truth Stream Media made a video about the new Big Brother effort, and Government Slaves did their take as well. And the latter even suggests alternatives to using Google Search for those who refusing the totalitarian tendencies we see headed our way these days. For people who had rather boycott the imminent evil such as Yandex, and DuckDuckGo. Government Slaves also lists 400 sites for independent news outside Google’s MATIX. My advice for everyone is to start making the transition away from Google and Facebook now. My own vast experience in dealing with these tech people has revealed people with no morals whatsoever, people willing to do anything necessary to perpetuate their dominance in digital. Google has destroyed millions of people’s livelihoods, broken its own code, lawyers itself around anti-trust and fair practice rules, avoided taxes, and colluded against the people of the United States with the intelligence agencies. All these assertions are not just this writer’s ramblings. Back in 2014 John W. Whitehead wrote about the NSA and Google for the Huffington Post:

“Just look around you. It’s happened already. Thanks to an insidious partnership between Google and the National Security Agency (NSA) that grows more invasive and more subtle with every passing day, “we the people” have become little more than data consumer commodities to be bought, sold and paid for over and over again.”

August 29th the notorious Zero Hedge creator, Tyler Durden wrote a piece entitled “Why Google Made The NSA”, which revealed a project called INSURGE INTELLIGENCE, a crowd-funded investigative journalism project that had released a story of how the United States intelligence community funded, nurtured and incubated Google as part of a drive to dominate the world through control of information. You read that correctly. My past assertions that Sergey Brin and Larry Page were “lifted up” by unseen money were probably correct. While I presumed George Soros or Rockefeller being behind, it’s conceivable Uncle Sam was the spook in the woodpile. The Zero hedge story delves deep into a “deep state” we never imagined in our worst nightmares. The report unveils how Pentagon Highlands Forum’s more or less taking over tech giants like Google to pursue mass surveillance. Furthermore, the report shows how the intelligence community has played a key role in secret efforts to manipulate the media and the public. The endless crisis and war we find ourselves in, is in large part because of the efforts of Google and the other technocratic institutions. In on section the author frames how the Obama administration really consolidated this “Big Brother” control:

“Under Obama, the nexus of corporate, industry, and financial power represented by the interests that participate in the Pentagon Highlands Forum has consolidated itself to an unprecedented degree.”

These people refer to themselves as “the gatekeepers”. Their arrogance is only exceeded by their amoral agnosticism. The successes of the information age, Silicon Valley’s dubious venture capital bonanzas, the mysterious ways in which fairly ordinary innovators were propelling into the limelight warns us to the underlying swamp Donald Trump described. But it is the immensity of the network that should clue us. Imagine a new president taking office and fending off attacks as best he could, only to discover that the whole machine of the US government being under such a controlling influence.

Dear Alt-Left Mainstream Media, Washington Establishment and Deep State Operatives… The American People can see behind the curtain… And you will pay a heavy price for your dishonesty!

An Open Letter To The Alt-Left Media, Washington Establishment And Deep State

The single most intolerable thing to the American Voting Public, is to treat them with contempt. The vast majority of this country are just people trying to raise a family, make ends meet, pay their bills, and make a better life for their children than they had for themselves. They couldn’t give a crap about your artificially stirred up race wars, and your fantasy oppression, and your attempts to find injustice behind every corner.

But the one thing they do care about, from the deepest parts of their soul, is your elitist attempts to manipulate them. To pull their strings… To make them dance… To pit one segment of society against the other… For your own benefit. In spite of your belief to the contrary, the American Voting Public is not stupid. They can see what you are doing. They can look at the Alt-Left Mainstream News Reports, and they can compare them to actual events. They know that you’re lying to them.

You have managed to convince yourselves that your manipulation is paying dividends. You’ve managed to create a nice little socialist army of masked abusers to beat people up in your name… And you’ve created a Media Echo Chamber to call them heroes. And you trot out the virtue signaling politicians to bask in the glory of your artificial righteousness. You create demons and monsters where none really exist. Because you’ve labeled them Nazis and Skinheads and KKK. And you all tell yourselves that it’s working….

But they can see… They can see that it is false. They know their own hearts. They know that they are good men and women… and that they love their neighbors… and that they’re just trying to make a life for their family… and that they’ve never spent a minute hating anyone. They can see that the fans of hatred and violence and discord are coming not from them, but from you.

Your day of reckoning is coming soon. Americans will go quietly go to the polls in 2018, and in 2020, and they will join to help you understand that they don’t want to be manipulated. Your repudiation will be total. And it will be glorious. You’re not half as clever as you think you are.

Remember When The DNC Emails Were Widely Reported As A LEAK

 Political  Comments Off on Remember When The DNC Emails Were Widely Reported As A LEAK
Aug 162017
 

FLASHBACK: Before the “Trump-Russia” conspiracy, the DNC emails were widely reported as a LEAK and NOT a hack!!!

Remember When The DNC Emails Were Widely Reported As A LEAK
Bernie Sanders says leaked emails show he was right about the DNC all along

This shift is definitely worth noting and should be brought to the attention to all on the left regularly. Why would you want to receive your news from an organization that peddled this bull crap for over a year. Now when it suddenly fell off the face of the Earth you’re okay with it? The narrative has unfortunately stuck for some despite the lack pf Mainstream Media coverage of it anymore, and it needs to be pointed out that some news outlets are questioning if there was a hack at all now.

From CNN July 25, 2016:

What was in the DNC email leak?
(CNN) — Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s stewardship of the Democratic National Committee has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process.

Now, on the eve of the party’s convention, Wasserman Schultz is facing pressure to resign, and will have no major role on the convention stage, after Wikileaks released nearly 20,000 DNC emails that bolster Sanders’ supporters’ claims that the party favored Clinton.

One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they can reference Bernie Sanders’ faith to weaken him in the eyes of Southern voters. Another seems to depict an attorney advising the committee on how to defend Hillary Clinton against an accusation by the Sanders campaign of not living up to a joint fundraising agreement.

Here’s what you need to know about the DNC email leak so far:

Emails leaked from seven DNC officials

The leaks, from January 2015 to May 2016, feature Democratic staffers debating everything from how to deal with challenging media requests to coordinating the committee’s message with other powerful interests in Washington.

The emails were leaked from the accounts of seven DNC officials, Wikileaks said. CNN has not independently established the emails’ authenticity.

The emails could boost Sanders supporters’ charge that the DNC was biased toward Clinton — a position Sanders himself underscored when he endorsed Wasserman Schultz’s primary opponent in her Florida congressional race.

But Baltimore mayor and DNC Secretary Stephanie Rawlings-Blake denied any suggestion that Clinton’s camp was treated more favorably by the committee.

“My xpectation is beyond your opinion about a candidate, that you act evenly. All of the officers took a pledge of neutrality and I honored that, and I take that very seriously,” Rawlings-Blake told CNN’s Poppy Harlow. She added: “I know that the chair will hold those employees accountable if they’re found to have acted outside of that neutrality and even-handedness.”

Asked about the exchanges, Rawlings-Blake said: “Expressing an opinion about a candidate doesn’t mean that you’re in collusion, doesn’t mean that you are actively working against them. And I don’t think that that’s what it shows.”

Questioning Sanders’ faith

One email features DNC staffers appearing to ponder ways to undercut Sanders, an insurgent Democrat who had a bitter relationship with party leadership.

On May 5, a DNC employee asked colleagues to “get someone to ask his belief” in God and suggested that it could make a difference in Kentucky and West Virginia. Sanders’ name is not mentioned in the note.

“This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist,” DNC chief financial officer Brad Marshall wrote.

Marshall did not respond to a request for comment.

Clinton prods DNC for intervention

In another email, an attorney for the Clinton campaign appears to advise the DNC on how to respond to a dispute between the two campaigns over how much money Clinton’s operation had raised for state parties. Sanders’ campaign charged that Clinton’s team was not handing over its fair share of its fundraising, which Sanders’ campaign manager Jeff Weaver said was “laundering” and “looting.”

“My suggestion is that the DNC put out a statement saying that the accusations the Sanders campaign are not true. The fact that CNN notes that you aren’t getting between the two campaigns is the problem,” Marc E. Elias wrote. “Here, Sanders is attacking the DNC and its current practice, its past practice with the POTUS and with Sec Kerry. Just as the RNC pushes back directly on Trump over ‘rigged system,’ the DNC should push back DIRECTLY at Sanders and say that what he is saying is false and harmful (to) the Democratic party.”

Elias and the Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment Saturday.

Favoring bigger donors

Another exchange involves a discussion on whether to move Maryland ophthalmologist Sreedhar Potarazu from sitting beside President Barack Obama at a DNC event after National Finance Director Jordan Kaplan said he gave less money than Philip Munger, another donor.

“It would be nice to take care of him from the DNC side,” Kaplan wrote, referring to Munger.

Potarazu told CNN Saturday that he wants answers from top DNC officials on how they are responding to these revelations, which have surfaced days before the Democratic convention.

“I was obviously shocked to see my name in the middle of all of this because I’m just an innocent bystander,” he said.

“I’m curious to see what’s happening at the highest levels of the DNC right now,” he added. “I don’t know, but I’m sure it’s a fire drill. The timing is not good.”

Wasserman Schultz attacks Weaver

Wasserman Shultz also called Weaver a “damn liar” in May after he criticized the Nevada Democratic Party following protests among Sanders supporters who said Clinton’s backers had subverted party rules. They shouted down pro-Clinton speakers and sent threatening messages to state party Chairwoman Roberta Lange after posting her phone number and address on social media.

“The state party there has a lot of problems. They’ve run things very poorly. It has been done very undemocratically,” Weaver said on CNN in May. “And there seems to be an unwillingness on the part of the Nevada Democratic Party to bring in all of the new people that Bernie Sanders has brought into the process.”

The DNC chair responded in an email: “Damn liar. Particularly scummy that he barely acknowledges the violent and threatening behavior that occurred.”

And in an email quoting Weaver as saying, “I think we should go to the convention,” Wasserman Shultz wrote: “He is an ASS.”

A Timeline Of Events Surrounding The Russian Hack Narrative

 Political  Comments Off on A Timeline Of Events Surrounding The Russian Hack Narrative
May 182017
 

A Timeline Of Events Surrounding The Russian Hack Narrative

An awesome timeline by reddit user RulerOfSlides:
Russia-Wiretapping hypotheses only timeline

I think I’ve got some of this worked out. The pieces are really starting to come together. First, what we learned recently:

  • Andrew McCabe gets manipulated/bribed into hiring a former MI6 agent to “research” (read: bullshit) the Trump dossier. Ties directly to the Clinton campaign (his wife received money from them or donated, iirc).
  • Hillary Clinton was confirmed to have access to intelligence and classified files after she left office as Secretary of State.
  • CrowdStrike recently redacted their statements that were used to support their claims of Russian interference in the election. They also were the only ones to look at the DNC’s servers; the FBI was prohibited to do so by the DNC itself.
  • Hillary Clinton and the head of CrowdStrike, Dimitri Alperovitch, were both ranking members of the Atlantic Council, a Soros-financed think tank.
  • Susan Rice requested that all intelligence relating to the Trumps (his whole family), gathered across a period of several years going back to 2013 (possibly earlier) be unmasked.
  • Jeh Johnson may also have been involved in unmasking Trump-related intelligence, but that connection is tenuous at best.
  • EDIT: I neglected to mention Evelyn Farkas, who accidentally disclosed the fact that the Obama administration had been spying on members of Trump’s campaign, as well as some of his friends is also a member of the Atlantic Council. She also had worked under the Clinton campaign since around 2015, and in her previous job dealt with Russia/Ukraine foreign policy.
  • EDIT II: Cernovich reported a few moments ago that three people close to Obama who had the authorization to unmask intelligence reports were Susan Rice, John Brennan, and Loretta Lynch – all three of whom were key players in the Russia narrative.
  • EDIT III: Developing possibility that Flynn and Trump may have cooperated to catch the spying apparatus/”Council of Evil” that Obama left behind, going off of a foreign intelligence tip. I have incorporated this into the timeline.
  • 4/3/2017 EDIT IV: Bloomberg now reporting on Rice’s unmasking efforts. The big takeaway here is that Nunes made a visit to the White House before his press conference to view the National Security Council systems that held the logs of Rice’s requests to unmask people that intelligence had been gathered on. I think this explains why Bannon was added to the NSC – Trump has eyes and ears in an area that he would otherwise have been blind to. It probably aided in gathering information about what was going on, too. (It’s also funny to see the media clinging to the literal definition of “wiretapping”). Adam Schiff also viewed these logs, hence his decided reluctance to properly comment on what was found.
  • 4/3/2017 EDIT V: Adding some small additional details that I uncovered from digging through the Podesta files. Podesta ID #34639, which better detectives than I concluded that this showed an effort at tying up Trump, Assange, and Russia. The screenshot is dead, sadly, but this happened in March 2016. Podesta ID #17020 also establishes a tenuous but still-present connection between Podesta and the Atlantic Council.
  • 4/4/2017 EDIT VI: As of a few hours ago, we now know slightly more about what happened with the fake Trump dossier. Steele was not paid directly by the FBI as originally speculated – that deal appears to have fallen through, but McCabe was closely involved in negotiating that payment, leaving the Clinton connection valid. The firm involved with it, Fusion GPS, began working on the dossier in September 2015, hired by an anti-Trump Republican donor. That deal was broken off some time after that, and then a Democratic supporter of Clinton started paying Fusion GPS to keep going, and this is the point where Steele was brought into the project.
  • 4/4/2017 EDIT VII: Contents of one of the Department of State emails (sent on November 21, 2009) recently declassified by the FBI indicate that Clinton’s infamous server was established to work around the intelligence-gathering systems that would later be used against President-elect Trump, or an ancestor to those systems. I unfortunately don’t remember who originally found this; I can’t be credited with this discovery – only integrating it into the timeline.
  • 4/5/2017 EDIT VIII: Apparently Susan Rice had a lot of friction with, of all the agencies, the NSA. One fellow ‘pede summarized this very nicely. I have a feeling that this gives Rogers adequate motive to go to Trump Tower about the unmasking on November 22 – she was horribly unpopular, possibly even coming to blows with Rogers himself.
  • 4/5/2017 EDIT IX: New information seems to implicate the one and only John Brennan as the man who ordered enhanced surveillance on key Trump allies, including General Flynn, Erik Prince (head of Blackwater and a top CIA critic), and Sean Hannity. Brennan was also the one to order Susan Rice to unmask those Trump allies. I’ve placed this in its rightful spot on the timeline.
  • 4/5/2017 EDIT X: Man, today is the gift that keeps on giving. Fox published an article describing that the intelligence reports involved here were uncomfortably detailed, but that’s not what I’m interested in. This report gives us a better understanding of when the unmasking campaign began, (concurrent with the Obama administration’s “investigation” into the DNC leaks) and tells us that only one agency would have the capability to fully trace back the paper trail that led back to Rice, as well as the fact that only one agency could approve unmasking requests – the NSA.
  • 4/6/2017 EDIT XI: Further information about Clinton’s continued access to classified material even after leaving her post as Secretary of State in 2013 has surfaced, for the purpose of “writing her memoir” (emphasis on air-quotes mine). Beyond Clinton, six staffers had access to the same classified intelligence. I have a feeling that the six people are on this list – specifically, the five people involved with management and strategy (Mook, Benenson, Renteria, Podesta, and Abedin) and Cheryl Mills. This would explain classified information ending up on Weiner’s laptop, and Mills’ request for partial immunity in the email investigation back in September.
  • 4/6/2017 EDIT XII: At the risk of making this seem implausible by not citing sources (who I’d like to keep private, though they are an active member of this community I have received permission to cite this source), it seems likely that Nunes discovered that he himself was unmasked by Brennan, McCabe, and/or Obama’s combined orders (there are three points where unmaskings were ordered, it would seem – by McCabe before the election, by Obama starting in December, and then again by Brennan after the new intelligence-dissemination rules went into effect in January) – that’s why he stepped away from the investigation. Nunes was on the Trump transition team as of December 1, 2016.
  • 4/8/2017 EDIT XIII: New Wikileaks release indicates that Guccifer 2.0, an individual supposedly responsible for leaking the DNC emails to Wikileaks (in addition to other doccuments) was neither Russian (with 97% certainty) and may have been a staffer named Warren Flood (or someone that stole his computer). Wikileaks does not indicate that the DNC knew Seth Rich was the leaker, however, because when Rich was discussed in Guccifer 2.0’s messages to a certain actress, he had been dead for over a month.
  • 4/12/2017 EDIT XIV: CNN accidentally admits (screenshot) that John Podesta had ties to Russia via the Podesta Group. The Podesta Group represents, among other things, the interests of Sberbank of Russia, which itself is owned by the Central Bank of Russia – which is part of the Russian government. The filing of the Podesta Group as a foreign agent is highly suspect on top of that. Perhaps the Russia narrative originated not out of revenge, but simply because the Clinton campaign (itself tied to Russia) assumed that Trump’s campaign was doing the exact same thing they were.
  • 4/18/2017 EDIT XV: I have been informed of an excellent summary of Obama-era wiretapping activities. Of note is that the single successful FISA request revolved around Carter Page’s alleged Russian connections, likely stemming from very close ties to the Russian government. This opened the door to Trump himself being officially spied on.
  • 4/18/2017 EDIT XVI: CNN accidentally admits, for the second time, more evil things. The Steele dossier was used by the FBI to justify FISA approval of surveillance of Carter Page. Bear in mind that Steele was under negotiation to be paid by Deputy Director McCabe for the dossier, and that Comey himself informed the Trump administration of what was in it. What does this mean? This means that the FBI knew it was full of shit (also why Steele was never paid), but it was still used in a court of law as evidence. Page is currently being leveraged because, being a Russian sympathizer, he is the weakest link in the Trump campaign and the most easily painted as a pro-Russian agent – and he was far removed from Trump’s inner circle. This is the length they had to go to to find some kind of Russian ties – faking evidence and hunting for Russian sympathizers, the latter of which was just found recently.
  • 4/23/2017 EDIT XVII: Kind of small, but still important – the Failing NYT confirmed that the FBI indeed attempted to pay Steele $50,000 for the dossier – if he could prove the claims in it. It appears that Carter Page’s visits to Moscow in 2016 – though they were innocuous, and though Page never met with Trump – were the legal foundation for much of the “Russian ties” claims (used for the FSIA request). The source of the Page-Russia connection, beyond Steele, was identified as Sergei Millian, a particularly shady Belarusian-American businessman. Page was also detested by the Trump campaign, and a cease-and-desist for calling himself a Trump advisor was sent to him in December 2016.
  • 4/25/2017 EDIT XVIII: Christopher Steele admitted that the claims in his dossier were 100% unverified. Apparently he’s going to court over the fact that the contents of the dossier were printed; there’s also some additional details of interest in here. The “hacker” that Steele claimed was involved in all this was Aleksej Gubarev, who runs a web-hosting company, XBT Holdings. Additionally, it seems that it was not Steele himself who released the dossier to the media; instead, Fusion GPS took it and leaked it to try and damage the Trump administration’s credibility. Steele did have less formal communications with the media, though. We now have a place for the meeting between Steele and the FBI – Rome, Italy, at some unknown time.
  • 5/13/2017 EDIT XIX: Big league news, if true. A Russian citizen has come forward and claimed that the FBI wanted to frame him for the DNC leaks, offering US citizenship and a dismissal of charges in return. The FBI apparently visited him several times – notably “mid-November” 2016, and February 7, 2017. He was arrested on unrelated charges on October 5, 2016. The relevant dates have been added.
  • 5/15/2017 EDIT XX: The family of Seth Rich hired a private investigator, who today announced that there is evidence he was in contact with Wikileaks prior to his death. There is evidence, too, that local police were told to step back from the investigation into his murder.
  • 5/17/2017 EDIT XXI: More information from one of the chans about Seth Rich. Also some potentially interesting deaths that occurred around the same timeframe – Joe Montano, the DNC chairman before Wasserman-Schultz and aide to Tim Kaine (July 25, 2016); and Shawn Lucas, head of a class-action lawsuit against Wasserman-Schultz for rigging the DNC primary (August 2, 2016).
  • 5/17/2017 EDIT XXII: Lucky timing on this. I was just about to go to bed, and happened across someone else on this domreddit linking Podesta email number 25651, which describes the best approach to stopping Trump as leveraging his “bromance with Putin.” This was sent by Brent Budowsky, a Huffington Post contributor and a writer for The Hill. Looks like Syria might have been one of the deciding factors on getting the Clinton campaign to turn against Russia. What is more significant is that this email was sent on December 21, 2015 – a whole three months before the earliest construction of the “Russian hacker” narrative.

My timeline, approximately:

  • EDIT XXII: The December 21, 2015 email exchange between Bret Budowsky and John Podesta occurs, touching upon ISIS and the continuation of Obama-era foreign policy surrounding Syria, in which Budowsky advises Podesta to make a departure from then-current policy for fear of it becoming political baggage. A notable quote: “But at the least she should not be branding and infecting herself with Obama’s policy towards Syria and ISIS by offering such high and direct praise for it.” I suspect this is the genesis of the Russia narrative, and the reason why the Clinton campaign went so far down the anti-Russia path.
  • The Obama administration most likely had been gathering intelligence on every GOP candidate – either as part of their expanded intel operations or as an intentional, focused sabotage plan. This information would likely have been contained in the President’s Daily Briefings, which Nunes is rumored to have investigated on March 22 – just before making the announcement that Trump’s wiretapping claims were correct. EDIT IV: Though Nunes may have viewed the President’s Daily Briefings at some point in his investigation, or intends to, it seems that the linchpin for Nunes was viewing the logs of Rice’s unmasking attempts.
  • Clinton got wind of this investigation through her ability to access intelligence files and other means (i.e., direct ties to people in DC who were active in intelligence-gathering). This is where the “Russian hacker” narrative began, possibly bolstered by her relationship with Alperovitch – who is a Russian expat and absolutely loathes Vladimir Putin. She may have built a narrative out of CrowdStrike’s report, hopeful that the intel-gathering by the Obama administration would uncover further information about Russian interference. EDIT: Evelyn Farkas, who had been involved in Russia/Ukraine affairs, may also have been involved with this, again through the Atlantic Council. EDIT V: Upon digging through the Podesta files, it would seem that the Trump/Russia connection narrative was constructed just before March 16, 2016. The Atlantic Council had a meeting about “combating far-right extremism in Europe” on March 22 – less than a week later. I think it’s possible that the Atlantic Council meeting on the 22nd was when the Clinton campaign, represented by John Podesta (who was in DC the day before the meeting, according to this – Clinton herself was in Washington state) exchanged information with CrowdStrike. EDIT VII: Since we can now establish that Clinton was aware of a covert spying system as far back as 2009, it’s possible that she counted on that same system to uncover some kind of Trump/Russia connection. EDIT XI: Now we also know that there’s a strong possibility that six of Clinton’s staffers also had access to classified intelligence – I wouldn’t be surprised if they were involved in dissemination, either.
  • On June 12, 2016, Julian Assange teases the release of the DNC’s emails, some three weeks after the latest possible date they could have been collected.
  • June 14, 2016 is the earliest date that has been connected to the official release of CrowdStrike’s report on the DNC “hack.” It may have been released the day after, too.
  • EDIT XIII: Guccifer 2.0 emerges onto the scene on June 15, 2016, and claims responsibility for the DNC hacks that were teased by Julian Assange barely three days earlier. Signs indicate that this may have been some kind of damage control by the DNC, coming off of the Podesta-Atlantic Council-CrowdStrike exchange that likely happened the previous month – basically, releasing “additional” information while lazily incorporating Russian “fingerprints” (i.e., writing the metadata in Cyrillic) into those releases as a means of shifting the blame to Russian influence. This is the second-earliest point at which “Russian ties” had been discussed publicly, and I have a feeling that the DNC took marching orders from the Clinton campaign (who had a discussion about Trump/Putin/Assange ties two months before, likely because they sensed a threat) in trying to sabotage Trump. Based off of some things that Guccifer 2.0 misinterpreted, it seems that he had zero connection to CrowdStrike’s report aside from reading it, so some insulation existed between the DNC and Clinton campaign.
  • EDIT XX: On July 10, 2016, Seth Conrad Rich, a DNC staffer, is murdered in Washington D.C.
  • On July 22, 2016, Wikileaks begins the release of 44,000 emails from the DNC spanning a period from January 2015 to May 25, 2016.
  • EDIT III: Oh boy. This – roughly July or August – is about the point at which, should the possibility laid out by Jonathan Langdale be correct (which Flynn’s apparent “thumb’s-up” lends extra credence to), Russia was responsible for approaching the Trump campaign and making them aware of the surveillance that was going on. Basically, Trump and Flynn laid out a trap for the “Council of Evil” (which I’ve come to call the Lynch/Rice/McCabe/Brennan/Clapper circle that seems to have been the main people involved with the Russia narrative) and the deep state, in which Flynn would be made to seem untrustworthy in order to draw out and embolden leakers. They couldn’t do anything about it, like go public with it, because it would jeopardize their chances of winning the election and thus prevent the campaign from investigating it further. Additionally, the FBI’s actions with Clinton made them seem untrustworthy; it was readily obvious as well that the DoJ was compromised after Bill’s infamous meeting with Lynch on the tarmac – meaning they had nowhere to turn but inwards.
  • CrowdStrike’s report, which formed the backbone of Russian hacking allegations, found its way through the three-letter agencies and eventually indirectly caused the last FISA request over a Trump-controlled server to go through. [EDIT III: This may have been motivated by Russia’s detection of Trump’s surveillance as hypothesized by Langdale] Several previous requests had been made, probably because the former (above EDIT III) bullet point happened in around June or July. The FBI found nothing while investigating it. EDIT II: Loretta Lynch’s ability to view unmasked intelligence documents may have played a role in allowing the FISA request to go through – likely as a way of building evidence for the brewing Russian hackers narrative.
  • EDIT XXI: On August 9, 2016, Wikileaks officially offers $20,000 for information about Seth Rich’s murder.
  • EDIT VI: At around this point, the funding for Fusion GPS to create the Trump dossier dries up, shifting away from the unknown Democrat. Clinton, fearing that the Russian hacking narrative is on shaky grounds, indirectly pays off Andrew McCabe to come up with some kind of dirt on Trump. McCabe then begins negotiating hiring Fusion GPS, who has brought Christopher Steele, a former MI6 agent, into their investigation. The money never makes it to Fusion GPS, and Steele spends several months “working” on it, sends it off to the mainstream media, and it floats around for several months until Buzzfeed publishes it as a means of undermining the Trump administration. Bear in mind that, by this point, the dossier had been in development for over a year.
  • McCabe believes Steele’s then-incomplete dossier, as well as CrowdStrike’s claims, and then begins to plan a soft overthrow of the Trump administration starting with the weakest link – Mike Flynn. Flynn is later forced out due to his own faults, [EDIT III: My original assumption here may be untrue, and this may have been part of a grander plan] but the assault doesn’t stop there. Comey may have been aware of McCabe’s actions, but ignored them. [EDIT XVII: This has been basically confirmed – the FBI knew of the dossier.]
  • EDIT XIX: Yevgeniy Nikulin, a Russian national, is arrested on October 5, 2016 by the Russian government over unrelated hacking charges (on the order of the US government). Two days later (October 7), the DNI (Clapper) and DHS (Jeh Johnson) jointly stated that Russia was behind the DNC server hack, as well as the Podesta leaks.
  • On October 7, 2016, Wikileaks begins releasing the Podesta emails, covering a period from approximately 2006 to March 21, 2016.
  • In the third Presidential debate on October 19, 2016 Clinton makes the first public accusation that “Russian hackers” interfered with the election.
  • This is about the point where the media begins to go crazy over the “Russian ties” allegations, bolstered in some form or another by the CrowdStrike claims, Steele’s dossier, and quite possibly leaks from McCabe’s anti-Trump crusade in a kind of Deep Throat Jr. situation. I have a suspicion that McCabe and his FBI-based allies (the “McCabe 16” mentioned in the True Pundit article) were the source of the narrative. EDIT II: The CIA under Brennan – because of his access to unmasked intelligence reports – may also have been involved with leaks to the media, especially via the Washington Post, which some have deemed the “mouthpiece of the CIA.”
  • On October 22, 2016, Gavin MacFayden – Seth Rich’s rumored contact at Wikileaks – dies of lung cancer in London. He had apparently been ill for quite some time (I personally don’t consider his death suspicious – only that it makes it harder to piece together the truth).
  • EDIT IX: This is approximately Election Day. If the anonymous sources are indeed correct, then this is the point at which CIA director John Brennan orders enhanced surveillance on people in Trump’s inner circle – like Mike Flynn (already targeted by the FBI under McCabe), Erik Prince, and Sean Hannity. He may have also provided Rice with the specific documents or directions to find them that were later disseminated at the Obama administration’s behest starting sometime in December. Flynn was chosen due to the ease at which he could be leveraged; Hannity was chosen due to his apparent close ties to both Trump and Julian Assange, and Prince may have been focused on due to a long-standing personal feud with Brennan. The enhanced surveillance continues from November 8 to January 20. Note as well that this failed to turn up anything of note, as Director Clapper left office on January 20 and reported on March 6, 2017 that no evidence of Trump-Russia ties existed. In other words, the enhanced surveillance failed.
  • EDIT XIX: Nikulin receives his first visit from the FBI in “mid-November,” mere days before John McCain learns of Steele’s dossier.
  • EDIT VI: Thanks to the Daily Caller, we now know that John McCain learned about the dossier at the Halifax International Security Forum, which took place between November 18 and November 20, 2016. The person involved in bringing it to his attention was Sir Andrew Wood. Wood was a former ambassador for the UK to Russia, and knew Steele from his time at MI6. I have a suspicion that the exact date the discussion about the dossier happened was November 19, because Wood was involved in a panel on “Maidan, Crimea and the Obstacles to Democracy in Ukraine” on that date according to the agenda. Wood flew back to the UK, met with Steele, and handed the dossier off to McCain between November 19 (the last date I can confirm with reasonable certainty Wood was present in Halifax) and December 9, when McCain gave the dossier to James Comey during a meeting. Comey then briefed Trump on the existence of the dossier – which suggests to me that he was unaware of McCabe’s actions in trying to hire Fusion GPS – and once that meeting became known to the press, BuzzFeed published the complete dossier. EDIT XVI: Now we know that Steele’s dossier, likely the complete version handed to Comey, was used to bolster the FBI’s FISA request. Highly suspicious, and indicates the document was laundered.
  • EDIT X: Early December 2016. The Obama administration announces the beginning of an investigation into the DNC hacks, and the requests for unmasked intelligence reports relating to this begin at around this point. I think it’s likely that someone higher-up than Susan Rice ordered the unmasking, as the aforementioned paper trail through the NSA would have been immediately suspicious to the incoming Trump administration. This may also explain Rogers’ visit to Trump Tower, as unmasking in a less official manner had been going on for many months up to this point – this would merely be the latest effort to direct it at the Trump administration. I suspect the higher-up who ordered Rice to do this was most likely John Brennan; he intended Rice to be his fall guy when Trump caught up to what was going on.
  • The real unmasking begins once Obama amends EO 12333 to encourage free sharing of information between the three-letter agencies, on January 12. The new rules were signed by Clapper on December 15, so it’s reasonable to assume they had been floating around for a decently long time before that. Less than a month before Clapper agrees to them, NSA head Admiral Rogers visits Trump in an infamous “unscheduled meeting,” which draws ire from the rest of the intelligence community. It’s obvious at this point that this was in order to warn the new administration of what was going on behind closed doors, likely including the information sharing.
  • Susan Rice orders the unmasking of all Trump-related intelligence at some point after the information sharing rules go into effect. This allowed intelligence previously collected on Trump and his family to be widely disseminated between the FBI, CIA, and NSA, and thus exponentially increased the chances of leakers spreading that information to the press – which can (and did) happen. McCabe was involved in this due to his desire to force Flynn and then Trump out of office. Jeh Johnson may also have been involved in the unmasking process as well, but it’s unclear as to what his position was.
  • EDIT III: The trap from before the election was set; Flynn volunteered to be the fall guy as already a kind of black sheep in the administration (by being the sole Democrat), and he baited the intelligence community into going after him just before the new inter-agency intelligence sharing rules took effect. It worked like a charm – the media latched on to it, and Flynn handed Trump his resignation letter as the whole intelligence community fell for it hook, line, and sinker. It was now obvious who the leakers were and where they were coming from.
  • EDIT XIX: Nikulin receives his second visit from the FBI on February 7, 2017. Note that this happened after the unmasking scandal began falling apart in the waining days of the Obama administration.
  • EDIT II: Cernovich revealed tonight that H. R. McMaster was responsible for discovering Rice’s actions, and he was responsible for sending an aide to Nunes in order to blow the lid open on what was going on. This happened between February 20 (when he assumed office) and March 22 (when Nunes held his press conference). EDIT III: Flynn, it should be noted, resigned seven days before McMaster took office; I don’t think it’s a coincidence that he uncovered what Rice was doing in just over a month – Flynn’s dismissal drew all the termites out of the woodwork, and emboldened them in attempting to leak new, “damaging” information. The only effect this had was to highlight the leakers.
  • The White House figures out all of this, or some key portions of this, between January 20 and March 4. Thus follows Trump’s series of tweets discussing “wiretapping,” and the rest is history. EDIT IV: It wasn’t until early March that Rice was pinned down as the unmasker by lawyers at the White House, so I tend to think that Trump reported on “wiretapping” almost as soon as the smoking gun was found.

Media Propaganda Of The Day: Reuters Reports Trump Campaign Had 18 Undisclosed Contacts With Russians

Reuters reports the Trump campaign had 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians. Then clearly states in black and white “The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far”

From Reuters:
Exclusive: Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians – sources

Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race, current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges told Reuters.

The previously undisclosed interactions form part of the record now being reviewed by FBI and congressional investigators probing Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election and contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Six of the previously undisclosed contacts described to Reuters were phone calls between Sergei Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, and Trump advisers, including Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser, three current and former officials said.

Conversations between Flynn and Kislyak accelerated after the Nov. 8 vote as the two discussed establishing a back channel for communication between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that could bypass the U.S. national security bureaucracy, which both sides considered hostile to improved relations, four current U.S. officials said.

In January, the Trump White House initially denied any contacts with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. The White House and advisers to the campaign have since confirmed four meetings between Kislyak and Trump advisers during that time.

The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far. But the disclosure could increase the pressure on Trump and his aides to provide the FBI and Congress with a full account of interactions with Russian officials and others with links to the Kremlin during and immediately after the 2016 election.

HRC Camp Plotted To Smear Trump For A Putin “Bromance” Way Back In 2015

Is this the SMOKING GUN in the Trump Russia Fake News narrative?

HRC Camp Plotted To Smear Trump For A Putin Bromance Way Back In 2015

A Wikileaks email shows that Hillary Clinton’s campaign team was advised to link Russian President Vladimir Putin with Donald Trump in an apparent bid to distract voters from her strategy on ISIS.

The exchange of emails between Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and Clinton ally and columnist Brent Budowsky was among the batch of around 1,000 emails from Podesta’s account released by WikiLeaks on October 22, 2016.

In a December 21, 2015 email, Budowsky criticizes Clinton’s position on fighting ISIS before advising Podesta to draw Putin into her attacks on Donald Trump.

Wikileaks Email ID 25621 Brent Budowsky advises Podesta – to smear Trump with a Putin “Bromance”:

Russia Setup

Budowsky’s email follows a discussion with Podesta on how to best position the former secretary of state on the issue of tackling ISIS.

Budowsky warns that Clinton is not coming down strongly enough on fighting ISIS and that her support for Obama’s approach is a potential “death ray to her candidacy in a general election.”

“Walk back and escape from her statement that ‘finally we are where we need to be’ against ISIS. We are not where we need to be, we are far from it, most voters do not believe it, and when the next terror attack comes in America – which it certainly will – she will be branded in hot iron with that statement,” Budowski warns.

“She will never state what I believe we need to do – at least 20,000 ground troops with 3,000 American and at least 10,000 from Sunni Muslim nations – because she is consumed with keeping Obama’s goodwill and afraid of liberal backlash.”

Podesta counters: “Her reference was not to ISIS but to going after Assad diplomatically because of UNSC resolution passed Friday. We will make that clear. She has given two major speeches about how we are NOT where we need to be on ISIS.”

“That’s good, sooner it’s clarified the better, and the stronger the better,” Budowski replies, later adding: “Best approach is to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin, but not go too far betting on Putin re Syria.”
