US Gov Wants 12 Billion From Mexican Drug Lord El Chapo By Sara Carter - July 5, 2019 In an order of forfeiture, the Eastern District of New York said that the US is “entitled to forfeiture of all property that constitutes or is derived from the Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s narcotics-related crimes; any property that facilitated the commission of those crimes; and the defendant’s interest in, claims against, and property or contractual rights affording a source of control over, the continuing criminal enterprise.” Click image below to read full Order of Forfeiture:
  2. This collusion to get Trump was so convoluted and ran so deep, it is no wonder the headwind they were fighting at every turn got nastier....
  3. How did you feel about it back then? Were you okay with it? Did you speak out against it? AG Barr Battles Intel Community And FBI. Illegal Surveillance Had Been Going On For Years. By Sara Carter - May 28, 2019 President Donald Trump’s orders to declassify secret documents pertaining to the FBI’s investigation into his campaign in 2016, came after weeks of battles between Attorney General William Barr and senior officials within the bureau, CIA and other agencies, sources with knowledge told SaraACarter.com. Despite the president’s order giving Barr authority over the declassification of the documents related to the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia, it won’t be met without a fight. And there’s a reason why. This isn’t just about Trump. It’s about nearly a decade of abuse inside the intelligence community and bureau regarding foreign-intelligence-collection authority. Why? Because it was carried out to monitor communications of Americans inside the United States and the procedures meant to protect Americans either swept up in those calls or targeted were not followed. The Fourth Amendment was under attack and abused for political purposes, say several retired intelligence sources. “If the full extent of the abuse is made public the powers granted these agencies powers could be scaled back and those who allegedly abused their power could face prosecution,” one former senior intelligence official told SaraACarter.com. “We are heading toward a gigantic, gigantic fight,” Joe DiGenova It was the same argument made by Joe DiGenova, former U.S. Attorney and outspoken supporter of Trump, during Memorial Day weekend. “This is full scale war between the Attorney General of the United States and believe it or not, another FBI director who thinks he’s James Comey,” Joe DiGenova, former U.S. Attorney said Monday on WMAL radio’s Mornings on the Mall radio show. “We are heading toward a gigantic, gigantic fight,” he added. “The intelligence community, which includes the FBI, is in full resistance to disclosing what they did during the presidential campaign.” DiGenova told this reporter Tuesday that the FISC’s opinion in 2017 reveals that improper surveillance has been happening since 2012. “The FISC has already found that there’s been spying going on starting in 2012, not (just) in 2016,” he said, adding that senior officials within the FBI and CIA “fear” that a full scale disclosure of the violations will then limit their expansive powers. DiGenova was referring to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Judge Rosemary Collyer April 26, 2017 memorandum and opinion. In her opinion she chided the abuses in surveillance in the intelligence community. On example, was Collyer’s referral as to how the Director of National Intelligence (NCTC) in 2012 “was granted access to raw information from terrorism cases obtained under Titles I and III and Sections 704 and 705(b) of the Act, subject to expanded minimization procedures.” It’s reading between the lines of Collyer’s opinion, understanding what’s been redacted and what Collyer meant by the reprimand, he said. “How much surveillance came directly from the NSA? How much of it was misused under the terrorism statute,” Former Senior Intelligence Official. It is the main reason Barr appointed U.S. Attorney in Connecticut John Durham to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter. Durham is extremely familiar with the CIA and has an extensive career investigating the intelligence community. As for U.S. Attorney John Huber, he is no longer working on the FBI’s probe into the Trump campaign. He will be focused on other matters. “How much surveillance came directly from the NSA? How much of it was misused under the terrorism statute,” said another former senior intelligence official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “Because under 215 and 702 you can do things you can’t do under a normal criminal investigation. These are the areas Barr needs to be looking at and this is exactly what they need to be questioning about.” As stated in a write up at the Brennan Center For Justice “Section 215 of the Patriot Act, allows the government to obtain a secret court order requiring third parties, such as telephone companies, to hand over any records or other “tangible thing” if deemed “relevant” with regard to terrorism, counterespionage, or foreign intelligence investigation.” Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act allows the government to acquire foreign intelligence by targeting non-U.S. persons “reasonably believed” to be outside U.S. borders, the center states. However, persons inside the United States can and will be swept up in the collection and this is where “minimization procedures” to hide the persons name are used. This is not what happened. NSA’s “Lack of Candor” Over two and half years ago, John Solomon and I investigated this very issue. We revealed in multiple stories the extensive abuse that happened under the Obama Administration with regard to surveillance issues by the intelligence community and law enforcement. In fact, it was Collyer’s reprimand that exposed what was happening in the Obama Administration with regard to unwarranted surveillance activities. What we didn’t realize was how extensive the abuse had become or how extensive it was abused during the FBI’s probe into the Trump campaign. It was a strange twist of events at the end of the Obama administration. In October, 2016, the administration self reported to the courts that it had failed to adhere to the rules. This is what Collyer was referring to in her 2017 memo. After the NSA reported what had happened, the court accused the NSA of “an institutional lack of candor.” The court also reiterated that it was “a very serious Fourth Amendment issue.” Remember, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court was created in 1978 and considered the most secret court because the proceedings are classified. What this means is that only the Justice Department is represented – the person being monitored has no idea and no representation. Here’s what happens: The NSA collects massive amounts of intelligence under FISA Section 702. This is a different section of the FISA. Under 702 surveillance authorities communication on Americans will be incidentally collected if they are speaking to a foreign person being targeted – that can be anyone from a terrorist, businessman or a foreign government official overseas. This doesn’t seem like it would be a big issue but FISA surveillance is more controversial than targeting someone because of a crime. Why? Because the government does not have to show probable cause of a crime to obtain a FISA. The courts are at the mercy of federal law enforcement to provide solid evidence and full disclosure when applying for the warrant against any American. The NSA Minimization Proceedures We know based on the information provided to the courts that the NSA under Obama had broken the rules. We also know now that the FISA process had been abused with regard to the investigation by the bureau into the Trump campaign. This is what Barr needs to investigate and it goes far beyond what happened with the 2016 election, in fact, it goes right at the heart of what Collyer addressed in her memorandum. For example, any American swept up in NSA communication collections under FISA 702 is supposed to be protected. The FISA court ensures this through, minimization procedures, that is keeping the name of the person swept up into the collections masked. The identity is supposed to be concealed when the NSA issues its reports or analysis in the intelligence community. Unmaskings Once those identities are unmasked and if those documents were shared within the intelligence community leaks were more likely, and the difficulty of tracing those who leaked the information much more difficult. That is what was revealed when information went public that senior Obama Administration officials, like then National Security Advisor Susan Rice, United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power, CIA Director John Brennan and others had requested the unmasking of Americans, some in the Trump campaign. It’s important to note that unmasking an American was once extremely rare. It is done for the purposes of counterintelligence or terrorism investigation and is usually done by those directly involved in the investigation. Why were senior officials with the Obama administration making so many unmasking requests? The U.S. intelligence officials said that what was occurring in and of itself “is highly suspect, and extremely unusual.” One stunning revelation in 2017, was the number of unmasking requests made by U.N. Ambassador Power. She had requested nearly 300 people be unmasked. In an effort to explain the requests, she told Congress during a 2017 hearing that subordinates had signed her name for the information. Most of the people unmasked under her name were done so at the end of the Obama Administration. House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News shortly after the hearing that Power admitted under testimony that they were under her name but stated to the lawmakers “I did not make those requests.” Carter Page Then there’s the FISA issue with Carter Page, a short term volunteer for the Trump campaign. This is a different set of violations that happened under the FBI and DOJ. These are violations that will certainly be investigated by both the DOJ and the Inspector General. Page was the target of a FISA Warrant from October, 2016 until September 2017 and evidence collected by the House Intelligence Committee, then led by Chairman Devin Nunes, revealed a number of highly questionable issues with how the FBI obtained the warrant. First, it used an unverified dossier, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele as the bulk of evidence to secure the FISA warrant from the secret court. Steele is now refusing to cooperate with the US Justice Department as it reviews the start of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Far worse, there is the alleged evidence that will reveal the FBI withheld exculpatory evidence related to Page’s case that he was in not working with Russians, nor had any contact with the Russians for the Trump campaign. What Happens Next Barr will have numerous battles to get to the truth of what occurred but it is a war worth fighting. It is a fight for accountability, oversight and constitutional protections that were endowed by our founding fathers. Durham is charged with this investigation and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to release his report on the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Trump within weeks. These investigation will hold those in the intelligence and law enforcement community accountable, depending on what evidence is discovered. This reporter is hearing from sources that it will be scathing. Those who abused their power and weaponized the tools meant to target America’s enemies against a political opponents should be held accountable. But as it stands now, what we have heard publicly is only the tip of the iceberg and unless the new DOJ team led by Barr does its job, there is no doubt it will happen again.
  4. Takes John Dean to the woodshed What a take down! How can you Dems not shrink away in embarrassment of all this?
  5. How often and how high will they go? Let the game begin!
  6. The truth shall set us free! Sara is as deserving of a Pulitzer as anyone ever! What a bunch of snakes that SC was! Disgraceful! Nunes: Mueller’s Report Is A ‘Fraud’ To Target Trump. Transcripts Suggest He Purposefully Left Out Information. By Sara Carter - June 1, 2019 Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes called Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report a “fraud” citing the investigators conveniently left information out of the report to make it appear President Trump’s counsel may have been obstructing justice. The newly released transcripts were from a voicemail message left by Trump’s former lawyer John Dowd to National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s lawyer Robert Kelner. Mueller’s team made it appear in the Special Counsel’s report that Dowd was asking for a “heads up” if Flynn planned to say anything damaging about Trump, alluding to possible ‘obstruction’ by his counsel. However, now that the full transcripts have been formerly released by a court order it appears to be all-together different. In fact, it appears that Mueller weaponized the transcript. What I mean is that Mueller left out the most significant parts of the message to make it appear that Dowd (who represented Trump) was attempting to obstruct the investigation. Mueller had redacted two significant portions of the voicemail message transcript, which according to numerous critics, reveal there was no intention of obstruction. In fact, as Trump’s attorney Dowd was only doing his job. Nunes tweeted a side-by-side comparison of the Dowd transcript text Saturday and the Mueller report text. It shows that the Mueller report did not disclose Dowd’s full message. And there’s a reason why – it would’ve taken the steam out of Mueller’s second half of his report that there was a possibility of “obstruction.” There was no obstruction. In the report full version of Dowd’s voicemail it says he wants the heads up “not only for the president but for the country.” He also specifically stated that he did not want “any confidential information.” Conveniently, Mueller kept those two significant statements out of the report using an ellipsis (… so it makes one wonder how many other convenient factors were left out of the Special Counsel’s report.) Here’s what the Mueller report quoted from the voicemail: “I understand that you can’t join the joint defense; so that’s one thing. If, on the other hand, we have, there’s information that … implicates the president, then we’ve got a national security issue, or maybe a national security issue, I don’t know … some issue, we got to — we got to deal with, not only for the president, but for the country. So … uh … you know, then-then, you know, we need some kind of heads-up.” The phone call took place in November 2017. Here’s what the full transcript says: So let’s take a closer look at this: First Muller leaves out that Dowd wanted a heads up “not only for the president, but for the country” as stated by Nunes and others reporting on the matter. Secondly, and most importantly, he emphatically states he is not asking “any confidential information.”
  7. I know what I'd like to hear from him this 4th Of July! It would be the perfect day to announce his plans of government reunification and accountability. The move to amend the July 4 celebrations in Washington comes after Trump floated the possibility of holding a military parade, an idea he got when he attended Bastille Day celebrations in France. But the military parade idea was dropped after senior White House and Pentagon leaders estimated it would cost $92 million. “When asked to give us a price for holding a great celebratory military parade, they wanted a number so ridiculously high that I cancelled it. Never let someone hold you up!” Trump tweeted. Trump’s plans are being criticized not only for imposing a burden on the city logistically, but also for political reasons. Rep. Betty McCollum, a Minnesota Democrat who chairs the House Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies, told the newspaper that Trump’s address would undermine the spirit of the celebration. “It’s not about any one president. It’s about how our nation came to be, because of a hardy band of brave men and women,” she said. “It’s not about any one person, it’s about ‘We, the people.’ And if the president moves to make this about him, I think he will find the America public disappointed and angered by it.”
  8. Doing so would force him to tell the truth and back Barr's summation Now what will the Left do?
  9. Is this why he's on his way out the door? Will he be held accountable? Is Wray next?
  10. Nadless is painting himself into a corner....
  11. Another great month on the job front, and this follows a better than expected GDP report. For a Putin stooge, Nazi-lovin', grade A dummy - Trump is beating the sh-t out of this job. Well done. The U.S. labor market charged ahead in April. The economy added 263,000 non-farm payrolls for the month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday. This topped expectations for 190,000 new positions, according to consensus estimates compiled by Bloomberg. March’s payroll additions were downwardly revised to 189,000, from 196,000 previously. The unemployment rate fell to 3.6% for the month, the lowest level since December 1969. Consensus economists had anticipated that unemployment would hold at March’s 3.8% rate.
  12. MAGA

    Seems these internet giants are just itching for a court fight. I wonder what the AG will or won't do in response. Seems to me they have become more a public utility than a private entity. Dictating acceptable speech crosses a line in my opinion.
  13. How is this any different? What do you say now?
  14. MAGA

    Of course this was suspected.....
  15. Can't wait to see this implemented! America First! Why was something like this not done before? Share
  16. I hold Sidney Powell in the highest regard. One of the brightest political minds there are. Trump would do well to listen to her. Hell he should have her by his side through this and his next term. She pulls no punches and takes no prisoners. Too much is at stake. I'd lay down my life to help facilitate this.
  17. If this were a Republican related aide, the MSM talking heads wouldn't stop talking about it. Instead, we only hear of it from the likes of the Epoch Times. Unlike the Awans, this one didn't get away with it....
  18. So glad the truth is finally getting exposed. It took over 2 years but the truth is finally being exposed and the schadenfreude on the Right is palpable. The Right was right and the Left was wrong just as predicted. I love being on the right side of history. Two thumbs up for those who stood by your principles and didn't let the fools sway your convictions Do those who still think this is all bunk suffer from some type of gene mutation? The facts are ther staring them in the face. How can any sane person defend, deny and still object to this as fiction? It boggles the mind.......
  19. I can't imagine Ruth will outlast Trump's 2nd term. At least I hope she won't. That woman has staying power... Disappointing from my view.
  20. As Trump works to Make America Great Again, I hope issues such as this become front and center. The time has come to highlight/expose these issues and to root out what has become so common that we don't even bat an eye when we learn of them. The sexual misconduct fund is a perfect example. Where's the outrage? Why have we not been screaming for the name and details? Stories like this one I'll bet will become more frequent as they set the stage for Term Limits. Watch for it!!!
  21. It's about damn time this leaker gets dragged onto the carpet! All 9 signed it! THAT says all that needs to be said. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) refuses to give up on collusion narrative. During the hearing committee Republicans demand his resignation on March 28, 2019. (Screenshot from House Intel Committee hearing) House Intelligence committee Republicans are demanding Chairman Adam Schiff resign, citing Schiff’s refusal to accept Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings that President Trump did not collude or conspire with Russia in the 2016 elections. It was evident that Schiff was not giving up. On Thursday, Schiff opened the hearing with “Putin’s Playbook: The Kremlin’s Use of Oligarchs, Money and Intelligence in 2016 and Beyond.” What happened next put Schiff on the defensive, as his Republican colleagues laid out the case against him. Rep. Mike Conaway, R-TX, opened the hearing with a letter demanding Schiff to resign immediately as the committee chairman. “We have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your Constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation as chairman of the committee,” said Conaway. Conaway cited Schiff’s persistence in perpetuating the collusion narrative despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings. The letter was signed by all nine Republican members of the committee. Schiff immediately responded with the same collusion conspiracy narrative. Moreover, Schiff once again cited now disproven claims that the Trump campaign willingly worked with the Russians to help Trump win. President Trump called for Schiff to resign Thursday on twitter, “Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!”
  22. Now that the Threat of Obstruction The Mueller Investigation is gone, the gloves are off. What was good for the goose is now good for the gander. Liberals, it is your turn. Try this on for size and let us know how it is to have the shoe on the other foot. I'm looking forward to your opinions and even more so to your complaints of 'it's not fair'. Yes, more news from the Epoch Times, get used to it!
  23. With Mueller out of the way, the gloves are coming off. We will now see what has been taking place behind the scenes in the IG's Office. This will not be pretty and the American Sheeple are in for a rude awakening. Important Report: McCabe and Page Text Messages Withheld From Congress by Corrupt DOJ Officials… Posted on March 22, 2019 by sundance. (the theconservativetreehouse) Not a Tick-Tock All day long, even before the Mueller news broke, Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge has really been leaning-forward, giving insight into the pending Inspector General report by OIG Michael Horowitz. Herridge is one of those reporters who is careful not to get out in front of her skis. Ms. Herridge is not a book-selling member of the tick-tock community of pundits. We noted earlier how the specific emphasis of Ms. Herridge seemed to indicate the Horowitz report was closer to the surface of completion than previously thought. Immediately after the Mueller news broke (around 5pm EST), Herridge filed her first live report providing details of the Mueller report. Within that first report Herridge stated she was previously bound to “confidences” until the Mueller probe was complete. In subsequent reporting we begin to see what those confidences are, and how they connect to her exclusive reporting on text messages between Andrew McCabe and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page. Ms. Herridge is strongly emphasizing a few key points that need additional emphasis: ♦ First, IG Horowitz is looking into the leaking of memos that contain classified information by “Senior FBI Executives”. This bullet-point directly relates to the James Comey memos that were leaked to the New York Times by Comey himself. On this first point, that would mean Comey is under investigation by the DOJ for those leaks. ♦ Second, IG Horowitz is following up on his own investigative finding where he found FBI officials were taking gifts from media. This violates FBI policy and could be a bigger ethical issue depending on the details. Interestingly, connecting this path to bullet-point #1, Herridge says: “by those same Senior Executives.” That would indicate former FBI Director James Comey, and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe would be under investigation for taking gifts from media. ♦ Third, Herridge reports on what we already knew. IG Horowitz is investigating FISA surveillance abuse that stems from the fraudulently obtained FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant gained on Carter Page. This third point we knew about; however, Herridge then drops a bombshell... Herridge notes she has exclusively gained 40 pages of text messages and communication between Andrew McCabe and Lisa Page. Her reporting from earlier today only revealed two of those pages. Additionally, Herridge reveals these McCabe/Page messages were not provided to congressional oversight while republicans were in charge of the committees. This is huge, because this speaks to two key issues: #1) corruption that existed inside the FBI (2017, 2018) that was/is keeping information from congress; and… #2) the possibility of AG William Barr changing the dynamic so those same corrupt officials can no longer hide the information. On both of those points, everyone following the story closely has noted that current DOJ and FBI officials were actually part of the corruption. Those officials were responsible for deleting text messages, and redacting text messages damaging to the institutions. With Mueller completing his two-year probe, we might see those corrupt officials no longer able to hide damaging details. At least this seems to be the overall tone behind how Catherine Herridge is conveying her reporting (ie. prior confidences now removed). Unfortunately Fox News has not uploaded the Herridge segments. However, the key segment is available below prompted to 29:18 WATCH: . (IG Report – DOJ/FBI Misconduct) Perhaps there’s reason for cautious optimism that AG William Barr might provide the change needed to finally start seeing some measure of accountability. With Mueller now out of the way it would appear the impediment to President Trump declassifying the FISA documents has been removed.
