CNN has revealed that the FBI used the fake “Trump dossier” in its application for a warrant from the FISA court in order to monitor former Donald Trump advisor Carter Page.
And Christopher Steele, who wrote the document, said through his lawyers in a report this week that the dossier came from “unsolicited” and “raw” intelligence that “needed to be analyzed and further investigated/verified.”
While Steele denounces the document, CNN reports it was part of the Democrat-controlled government’s effort to subvert Trump and his associates:
“U.S. officials tell CNN that last year the FBI used a dossier of allegations of Russian ties to Donald Trump’s campaign as part of the justification to get approval to secretly monitor Trump associate Carter Page,” Even Perez reported. “Now those sources say that FBI Director James Comey has cited the dossier in some of his briefings to Congress in recent weeks as one of the sources of information that the bureau used to bolster its investigation.”
“This includes approval from the secret court that overseas the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act known as FISA, to monitor Page’s communications,” Perez continued. “But to obtain permission to target Page, the FBI and the Justice Department would have to present probable cause that he was acting as an agent of a foreign power. Including possibly engaging in clandestine intelligence gathering for a foreign government.”

A high ranking U.S. official, suggested on Sunday that the missiles fired by Houthis at the destroyer USS Mason on three attacks, while it was in the Gulf of Aden, were provided by Iran. Senator John McCain and others strongly agreed.
Hillary, Hillary, Hillary…can we still love you when you call us names? And for me, the question is: am I in the “desperate” bucket or the “deplorable” basket, just because I won’t vote for you?
A little background is in order. Continue reading →

The Clinton Foundation is huge, and has been on the Charity Navigator (CN) watch list until December 2015. The charity is currently not rated by CN for the following reason:
We had previously evaluated this organization, but have since determined that this charity’s atypical business model can not be accurately captured in our current rating methodology. Our removal of The Clinton Foundation from our site is neither a condemnation nor an endorsement of this charity. We reserve the right to reinstate a rating for The Clinton Foundation as soon as we identify a rating methodology that appropriately captures its business model, CN explained..
The watchdog group said that in accordance with their policy for removing charities from the CN Watchlist, Charity Navigator removed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation Continue reading →
From Feel the Bern, the above video distorts history and defames Israel
Nearly everyone likes funny, warm Bernie Sanders.
And once upon a time he was a Jew, working in Israel. Now, he isn’t advertising it.
Instead, he portrays himself as an agnostic Jew, not practicing his religion, but apparently trying to be more popular because of it.
NBC gave him a “two for” this past weekend.
Saturday Night Live viewers on NBC saw him spoofing the “typical” Jew, just getting off the early 20th century ship, boasting a European cap and accent, enjoying his name change to be more accepted by the Gentiles. This performance was Bernie’s donation to stereotyping Jews as self-involved schleps, while subtly contrasting himself with the no-good, strong, proud Jews of Israel. Rochester would be proud. “Yes, Mr. Bernie!”
Meet the Press on NBC Sunday showed another side of Sanders. When asked about foreign policy experience, he actually said:
We’ve talked to people like Jim Zogby, talked to the people on J Street to get a broad perspective of the Middle East.
Both J Street and Zogby have continually criticized Israel for its policies in the Palestinian territories. No mention was made by Sanders of any pro-Israel experts.
Sanders has said that he thinks the Palestinians should get more financial help from the U.S., and Israel should have its military aid cut. He almost agrees word for word with Arab League proposals, when he Continue reading →
