Joseph P Farrell – If you’re a regular reader here, you’re already familiar with my usual pattern of doing things: first I talk about general context, then introduce the article or articles of the day which have caught my attention, and which form the fuel for my high octane speculation, which ends the blog.
Today, however, I must state clearly, and up front, that we’re dealing with high octane speculation right from the start, even though I haven’t stated it yet (other than in the title). To be completely forthright about it, the speculation I am going to indulge in isn’t really my own. Rather, it is a summary of that of others who sent in various versions of the following story, along with their own musings. I’m simply summarizing their ideas with a little embellishment of my own. After all, if you’re playing continuo as well as concertato, a little ad lib and ornamentation is called for.
In this case, the speculation comes from Mr. G.L.R., and Mr. H.B., and it concerns the following articles:
Mr. H.B. sent this one, and it’s clear enough from the title the speculation that is being indulged in some circles in the alternative media, and indeed, Mr. Netanyahu’s visit to Mr. Putin, so shortly before the recent Israeli strikes, does raise the question of whether or not Mr. Putin “greenlighted” the operation: Continue reading “Iran: Of Conspiracies, Cabals And Collusion”
Robyn Dolgin – Candace Owens – a black conservative – takes a page from President Donald Trump’s playbook when encountering unhinged liberals: she is fearless.
Her career, at the tender age of 28, has accelerated to the point of making the Nancy Pelosis and Chuck Schumers very nervous, given her growing national popularity to ignite ideological warfare among leftist-indoctrinated blacks, including Millennials on college campuses.
She treads where few conservatives are willing to go, especially white Republicans. “We need to get off the Maxine Waters plantation,” says Owens, taking aim at one of the most accomplished race-baiters in the Black Caucus. The new concept, says Owens, is to hold Democrats “accountable” for their “shameful” record of service to America, speaking as communications director of Turning Point USA.
Waters’s abysmal political career of 27 years (repeat: 27 years) remains enshrined in a district (Compton, Calif.) teeming with local corruption and shocking levels of criminal activity. “She lives in her $6 million mansion (in Hancock Park) while black people continue to suffer,” Owens adds. “And all she does is talk about race. Black leaders are engaged in the race business.”

Sundance – Inspector General Michael Horowitz has submitted the “Draft Report” of his OIG investigation to the principals involved. The IG investigation encompasses the FBI and DOJ conduct during the 2015/2016 Hillary Clinton investigation. The Draft Report encompasses the findings.
The Draft Report review is the last review phase prior to the Final report being released. The Draft Report review allows the principals to provide input on the facts identified and outlined within the draft.
Responses from the principals about the facts outlined in the draft report are then reviewed, cleared for addition if appropriate, and included in the Final Report. The Draft Report is the first time the DOJ and FBI Principals (only those officials who remain inside the DOJ and FBI) get to see the underlying documentary evidenced gathered in the 17-month-long investigation.
Wall Street Journal – Multiple subjects of a report on the Justice Department’s handling of a 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use have been notified that they can privately review the report by week’s end, signaling t he long-awaited document is nearing release.

Sundance – Some major reporting today from Paul Sperry includes very interesting details about how President Obama’s intelligence community structured their Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) about Russian interference in the 2016 election – SEE HERE –
In essence by following-up with various people involved in the construct of the ICA, journalist Paul Sperry outlines how CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, subverted their own intelligence guidelines in assembling the intelligence report.
While much of the background parallels our prior research, there are two very interesting aspects outlined by those with direct knowledge of the construct. First, that Brennan positioned FBI Agent Peter Strzok as the contact between the CIA analysis and the information flow to FBI Director James Comey:
[…] A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok.

Sundance – Knowing what we know now – how Stefan Halper (a foreign policy expert and Cambridge professor with connections to the CIA and its British counterpart, MI6), randomly reached out to contact Trump low-level campaign aide George Papadopoulos; and how that contact was likely part of a coordinated effort by political operatives within the U.S intelligence apparatus to start the counterintelligence operation against Trump; this prior interview with Chairman Devin Nunes is well worth re-watching.
About a month ago, April 22nd, 2018, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes appeared on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the origin of the counterintelligence operation (July 2016) against the Trump campaign.
This interview follows a mid-April FBI release of “some information” about the original “electronic communication” (EC) documents that underpinned the origin of the FBI operation. The first half of the interview contains stunning information about how the raw intelligence product within the EC did not come through official intelligence channels.

Julie Kelly – In an absurd tweet on Wednesday, Lawfare’s executive director suggested that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) should be replaced as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee:
That wasn’t even the most moronic tweet in Susan Hennessey’s arsenal. She went on to warn how “the intelligence oversight system is based on trust. Without trust it is irretrievably broken. The [Intelligence Community] and [Department of Justice] don’t trust Nunes and he cannot perform his job functions.” Get that? The Intelligence Community and the Justice department—which have proven to be as political and devious as a Chicago ward boss—are the white hats and Nunes is the black hat.
That is not ignorance on Hennessey’s part: it’s calculated deception. Continue reading “The Deep State Mob Targets Nunes”
