Diana West: Barr 'will keep a lid on questions about this Special Counsel investigation'

While many conservatives have applauded Attorney Barr’s comments during his recent CBS News interview, our friend author Diana West parsed his words closely and concluded they indicate that, rather than blowing away the smokescreen masking the Deep State conspiracy against President Trump, Mr. Barr is intent on managing it.

Was Brennan’s ‘Intelligence Bombshell’ the Steele Dossier?

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Christopher Steele claimed that his intelligence, showing that Vladimir Putin was directing a pro-Trump conspiracy that included the hacking and publication of DNC emails, was sourced to (among others) high-ranking Kremlin officials Vladislov Surkov and Vyasheslov Trubnikov. The story coming from the Brennan camp is that he had some other “bombshell intelligence” sourced to the Kremlin. That seems unlikely: The record shows that he was promoting the Steele dossier. Surely, the Republic as we know it will not crumble if Attorney General Barr tells us whether Brennan is being forthright.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Our friend Joe diGenova has described former CIA Director John Brennan as “the mastermind of” the “conspiracy to frame Donald Trump.” However, as a “mastermind” Brennan falls far short – he can’t even make-up an original lie to cover his tracks, his story about a high-level source close to Putin follows the “magic source” plotline of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy so closely.

Which One Of The Spygate Rats Will Flip First?

Fired FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI General Counsel James Baker and several others are already in the crosshairs. Given U.S. attorney John Durham’s reputation for uncovering and prosecuting FBI corruption in the Bolger case, which one of the Spygate rats is going to flip first?

Comey Is Ultimately Screwed

Our friend former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova had a pithy assessment of where Attorney General Bill Barr’s investigation into whether the Obama-inspired spying on President Trump and his campaign were properly predicated: "Comey is ultimately screwed,” said DiGenova.

Diana West’s ‘The Red Thread’ Book Launches Today

Our friend Diana West’s latest book, The Red Thread, A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy, launches today in a Facebook Livestream at 11am Eastern. West’s The Red Thread is the first investigation into why a ring of senior Washington officials went rogue to derail the election and the presidency of Donald Trump.

The Fabrications That Almost Succeeded In Overthrowing President Trump

Andrew McCabe would have us all believe that HE believed the Steele “dirty dossier” and other purported contacts between the Trump campaign and various Russians or Russian-affiliated persons, even though he knew almost all those contacts were set-ups orchestrated by the Hillary Clinton campaign, the FBI and various other organs of the Obama administration.

The Democrats’ Real Motivation For Opposing The Wall

We already know that the Obama administration abused the existing FISA protections and undertook surveillance of Sharyl Attkisson and many of President Trump’s political associates, and maybe even then-candidate Donald Trump as well. How long will it take before the Democrats’ surveillance regime moves beyond the border zone to encompass the entire country?

Spawn Of The Fake Steele Dossier

What research on the Steele dossier has slowly revealed is the scope and logistics of the information operation designed to sabotage an American election. Players include the press, political operatives from both parties, and law enforcement and intelligence officials.

The Crime OF Being Trump

The prosecutorial harassment of Donald Trump, those related to Donald Trump or in Donald Trump’s “circle” is an outrageous perversion of justice. What's more, the opprobrium heaped on the Trump family by the establishment media and popular culture has also claimed entirely innocent victims, such as Josh Trump of Delaware.

Comey Pleads The Hillary Memory Loss Defense

It seems that James Comey and Hillary Clinton are infected with the same memory loss virus that affects so many of the elite university graduates who make up DC’s political class, leading one to conclude it is not memories, but ethics and integrity that they are missing.

Everything Is Trump’s Fault Is Fake News At Its Worst

The establishment media continues to be befuddled by their falling market share and polls that say Americans don’t trust them anymore. They need look no further than these three stories from the past week and the false narratives they promote for the answer to their problems of loss of trust and market share.

Fake Bombs -- Fake News

Strange is how the bombs seem to be addressed to people who don’t open their own mail, was this an elaborate plot to kill George Soros’ butler or get the mail room clerk at CNN? At this point in the investigation we don’t know who is responsible or what their motives are – all we can do is wait for law enforcement to do their work and for the evidence to reveal the perpetrator.

What Happens If Rod Rosenstein Is Out At The Department Of Justice?

We agree with the President that there is a “lingering stench” at the Justice Department and FBI, however, it is unclear whether Rod Rosenstein will resign, be fired or stay in his position. The question is, is firing Rosenstein a set-up as Sean Hannity suggests, or something that needs to happen right away, as Judge Jeanne Piro and Laura Ingraham have urged.

John Brennan, a Security Risk from the Start

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The only criticism that Trump deserves for yanking Brennan’s security clearance is its delay. He should have done it on day one. Brennan was a security risk from the start — an anti-American radical of staggering proportions who should never have been permitted within a hundred-mile radius of Langley. He is still vowing to sabotage an American president, and indulges the adolescent delusion that he somehow speaks for the proletariat, insisting that it will “defeat” Trump.

New Poll: Conservatives Say Revoke Their Security Clearances

A new FedUp PAC poll shows that conservatives overwhelmingly agree that President Trump should revoke the security clearances of those involved in the unfolding scandal regarding the Obama administration’s spying on people in the Trump campaign.

Media Wail for Brennan and Clapper

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The networks have always politicized intelligence, back to the Vietnam War days. The FBI and the CIA were under fervent leftist attack in the 1970s. They seemed to be filled with villains every time the Republicans were in office — with former President Nixon and Watergate, former President Reagan and the Iran-contra affair, and former President George W. Bush and the Iraq War. But when they're scheming alongside Obama to help Hillary Clinton win, well, that's somehow patriotic activity.

The Self-Licking Ice Cream Cone

Senator Rand Paul was right, President Trump should revoke the security clearances of former CIA Director John Brennan and anyone else involved in the unmasking of Trump associates, the phony FISA warrant applications and the spying on the Trump team.

Why Should Trump Pick A Fight With Putin Over The Failures Of Obama, Clapper, Strzok and Brennan?

Never in the annals of Washington DC’s history have three bureaucrats been so anxious to shout their failures from every rooftop. But that’s exactly what Strzok, Clapper, and especially Brennan have been doing by blasting Trump for not picking a fight with Putin over their failure to stop Russian interference in the 2016 election.

John Brennan Misses Communist Russia

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The outrage about the Trump-Putin meeting is empty noise, generated by the America Last crowd to hurt an America First president. It won’t work. From Hillary to Pelosi to Brennan, they are the little lefties who cried wolf — after decades of feeding wolves. Their credibility is nil; their counsel is immature and reckless. Brennan isn’t just throwing stones from his glass house but boulders and his only expertise on treachery comes from his own.
