Thread: News Summary from the Week That Was (2-8 June)

1. If one blinks, one misses important news and events – partly because there’s a lot going on but also because the legacy media promotes and buries stories according to the Democrat narrative.
2. Let’s look back at some of the key items from last week. The first item is that DoJ gave Google and Silicon Valley a “shot across the bow” (a little Navy lingo).

<quote>
2A. The Justice Department’s plans to investigate Alphabet Inc.’s Google have been building over time, amid a growing public conversation about whether the government should do more to scrutinize the handful of giant tech firms that dominate the U.S. landscape.
2B. The department’s antitrust division and the Federal Trade Commission, which share federal antitrust enforcement authority, have sent a variety of signals that they were eager to explore cutting-edge questions about how big tech is affecting the competitive landscape.
2C. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that the Justice Department is gearing up for an antitrust probe of Google. Out of public view, it built plans for an investigation while it worked out turf issues with the FTC.
2D. The commission conducted a broad U.S. probe of Google that ended in 2013 without enforcement action; this time, the department directly asked to be the agency to conduct an investigation, and the FTC agreed, people familiar with the matter said.
2E. That allowed Justice to begin moving forward in earnest.

2F. Could Tw@tter and Facebook be next? Breaking up the railroads, Standard Oil, and AT&T wasn’t a bad thing back in the day. Time for the tech giants to face the music?
3. Tariffs on Mexico? All of the Uniparty was up in arms when @POTUS proposed tariffs on Mexico to force them to shut down caravans and the border.

<quote>
3A. President Trump on Sunday called Mexico an “abuser” of the United States, and warned that if the country does not do more to “stop the invasion” of the Southern border, ….
3A1. … his newly-imposed tariffs on Mexican goods would force companies based in Mexico to be “brought back” into the U.S.
3B. The president’s tweets come following his announcement on Thursday to impose a new 5 percent tariff on all Mexican imports — a tariff that would increase over time.
3C. [U]pon the announcement of the new tariffs, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador dispatched his foreign relations secretary to Washington on Friday, as the country scrambled to negotiate a solution with the U.S.

<unquote>

3D. And of course, the Uniparty globalists are up in arms about that, insisting that “the tariffs will be paid by US consumers.” Well, that’s one possibility – assuming US consumers continue to buy from tariffed sources (deferred buying is a possible option, too)!
3E. Tariffs change behavior, which @POTUS clearly understands. Fewer purchases of Mexican goods puts pressure on the Mexican economy. The same effect is at work with China. Tariffs are only paid if the goods are actually purchased, Uniparty clowns!
3F. And viola! The Mexicans folded like a cheap suit in less than a week:

<quote>
3F1. Trump announced late Friday that the U.S. had reached a deal with its southern neighbors that would see planned tariffs on Mexico stopped in return for Mexico taking further action to stop the flow of migrants from Central American to the U.S.-Mexico border.
3F2. According to a joint declaration issued by the State Department, Mexico will take “unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.”
3F3. The U.S. will also expand its policy of returning asylum applicants to Mexico while their claims are processed. The U.S. committed to accelerate asylum claims while Mexico said it will “offer jobs, healthcare and education according to its principles.”

<unquote>
3F4. Read more about #WINNING here: foxnews.com/politics/trump…
4. The telephone transcripts of President Trump’s attorney were altered by the Mueller crowd to make the President look bad, and exculpatory evidence was withheld in the Mueller report.

<quote>
4A. A transcript in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report was selectively edited to artificially buttress the narrative that President Donald Trump was obstructing the special counsel investigation.
4B. The Mueller report quotes a transcript of a Nov. 22, 2017, voicemail message from the president’s attorney, John Dowd, to the attorney for former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
4C. A full version of that transcript released on May 31 in the court proceeding in Flynn’s case shows that Mueller’s team selectively edited the transcript for the Mueller report.
4D. The edited version in Mueller’s report conceals Dowd’s sympathetic tone at the outset of the message, cuts out language that would show that Dowd discussed two separate matters, ….
4D1. … and omits the fact that Dowd specifically cautioned Flynn’s attorney that he wasn’t requesting any confidential information.
4E. Considering the tone of the follow-up call, the Mueller team’s removal of the fact that Dowd expressed sympathy in his voicemail, appears to be an attempt to make the email fit into the narrative that Trump’s attorneys were confrontational.
4F. Mueller’s report also omits Dowd saying, “I understand that you can’t join the joint defense; so that’s one thing. On the other hand …” The language expresses understanding and the fact that the following statement deals with a separate issue.
4G. Mueller’s report conflated the two statements by removing the sentence.

5. Over 200 pages of new emails from Strzok and Page reveal that Hillary Clinton clearly got a free pass in the email server investigation.

<quote>
5A. The FBI failed to document at least four interviews of witnesses in the bureau’s investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to send classified emails, according to documents obtained by the government watchdog Judicial Watch.
5B. Judicial Watch also discovered among the 218 pages of emails between former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour former FBI Attorney Lisa Page that then FBI General Counsel James Baker had instructed ….
5B1. … “FBI officials to expedite the release of FBI investigative material to Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall in August 2016. Kendall and the FBI’s top lawyer discussed specifically quickly obtaining the “302” report of the FBI/DOJ interview of Mrs. Clinton.”
5C. “These incredible documents show the leadership of the FBI rushed to give Hillary Clinton her FBI interview report shortly before the election,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
5D. “And the documents also show the FBI failed to timely document interviews in the Clinton email ‘matter’ – further confirming the whole investigation was a joke.
5E. AG Barr can’t reopen the Clinton email investigation soon enough.”

6. Out from hiding comes “The One” to talk about this particular subject of all things. Gee, is he getting nervous for some reason?

<quote>
6A. The former U.S. president told an Ottawa audience Friday evening he’s seen fake videos bearing his likeness, powered by artificial intelligence, modelling his voice and movements.
6B. “People can duplicate me speaking and saying anything. And it sounds like me and it looks like I’m saying it — and it’s a complete fabrication,” Obama said.

<unquote>

6C. Next, he will claim that some of his more self-incriminating public statements were faked. There’s even scuttlebutt floating around that both he and Shrillary will start claiming that some of Hillary’s emails were fake, too. They know the posse is getting close, folks!
7. Speaking of tight sphincters, here’s Jerry Nadler getting into the act.

<quote>
7A. U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said on Tuesday he would expect former White House aides Hope Hicks and Annie Donaldson to be held in contempt ….
7A1. … if they do not comply with subpoenas for documents he wants for his panel's probe into whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

8. Poor Rachel Madcow! (Actually, justice is being served.)

<quote>
8A. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has lost 500,000 viewers and suffered her worst ratings month since Trump became president, reports Fox News.
8B. During the first quarter of 2019, prior to the release of the Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and proved Trump did not obstruct justice), Maddow averaged 3.1 million nightly viewers.
8C. Last month, after the release of the Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and proved Trump did not obstruct justice), she averaged only 2.6 million viewers.
8D. That’s a loss of a half-million viewers…. There is no question, though, that the release of the Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and proved Trump did not obstruct justice) dramatically altered the ground under the Russia Hoax Queen’s feet.
8E. <unquote>

8F. The #FakeNews chickens are coming home to roost! Poor baby!
9. Speaking of #FakeNews, some things apparently never change in the legacy media:

<quote>
9A. A new study released by the Media Research Center showed that 92% of media coverage of President Donald Trump was negative in the month of May.
9B. The study notes that the negative media coverage was “just as hostile as the months leading up to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report.”

10. John Solomon provided outstanding rationale as to why Hillary Clinton owes the American people some answers to ten questions; here’s a taste of his excellent article, as well as those ten questions:

<quote>
10A. The Clinton team’s dirty trick was as diabolical as it was brilliant. It literally used house money and a large part of the U.S. intelligence apparatus to carry out its political hit job on Trump.
10B. After two years of American discomfort, and tens of millions of taxpayer dollars spent, it’s time for the house to call in its IOU. Hillary Clinton owes us answers — lots of them. So far, she has ducked them, even while doing many high-profile media interviews.
10C. Here are 10 essential questions:
10C(1) In January 2018, the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a formal investigative request for documents and written answers from your campaign. Do you plan to comply?
10C(1)a. Please identify each person in your campaign who was involved with, or aware of, hiring Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson and Christopher Steele.
10C(2) Please identify each person in your campaign, including Perkins Coie lawyers, who were aware that Steele provided information to the FBI or State Department, and when they learned it.
10C(3) Describe any information you and your campaign staff received, or were briefed on, before Election Day that was derived from the work of Simpson, Steele, Fusion GPS, Nellie Ohr or Perkins Coie and that tried to connect Trump, his campaign or his business empire with Russia
10C(4) Please describe all contacts your campaign had before Election Day with or about the following individuals: Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Christopher Steele, former Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, ….
10C(4)a. … former foreign policy scholar Stefan Halper and Maltese academic Joseph Mifsud.
10C(5) Did you or any senior members of your campaign, including lawyers such as Michael Sussmann, have any contact with the CIA, its former Director John Brennan, current Director Gina Haspel, James Baker, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page or former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe?
10C(6) Did you or any senior members of your campaign, including lawyers such as Michael Sussmann, have any contact with the CIA, its former Director John Brennan, current Director Gina Haspel, James Baker, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page or former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe?
10C(7) Describe all contacts your campaign had with Cody Shearer and Sidney Blumenthal concerning Trump, Russia and Ukraine.
10C(8) Describe all contacts you and your campaign had with DNC contractorAlexander Chalupa, the Ukraine government, the Ukraine Embassy in the United States or the U.S. Embassy in Kiev concerning Trump, Russia or former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
10C(9) Why did your campaign and the Democratic Party make a concerted effort to portray Trump as a Russian asset?
10C(10) Given that investigations by a House committee, a Senate committee and a special prosecutor all have concluded there isn’t evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, ….
10C(10)a. … do you regret the actions by your campaign and by Steele, Simpson and Sussmann to inject these unfounded allegations into the FBI, the U.S. intelligence community and the news media?

11. House Democrats looking to censure instead of impeach the President?

<quote>
11A. The Hill reports that House Democrats have begun considering a step short of impeachment to “put a permanent mark” on Donald Trump’s record without taking the risk of infuriating voters.
11B. The upside for censure [for Democrats] is that the House can do it on its own. The downsides, however, might outweigh the upsides. First, a censure has no practical effect on a president [other than political].

12. Next, Christopher Steele of dossier infamy has agreed to testify by DoJ in London.

<quote>
12A. Christopher Steele, the former MI6 operative infamous for collecting a dossier alleging ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow, among other sordid details, has agreed to be questioned by U.S. officials about his relationship with the FBI.
12B. A source close to Steele told The Times he will meet with investigators in London in the coming weeks.
12C. He reportedly told the Justice Department that he was only willing to discuss his dealings with the FBI and that he wanted officials to obtain the approval of the British government before the interview.

13. More useless activity – and political virtue-signaling – by House Democrats. This bill is going nowhere fast.

<quote>
13A. House Democrats voted 237-187 Tuesday to pass a bill that, if entered into law, would grant amnesty to an estimated 2.5 million illegally resident people.
13B. They also blocked a proposed change to the bill from Republicans, which could have helped reduce illegal immigration by funding border crisis relief to the tune of $4.5 billion.
13C. H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act, made it to the floor following a contentious intraparty debate over its contours in the House Judiciary Committee.
13D. If passed into law, the bill would create a path to citizenship for three distinct groups of illegally resident individuals who have been heretofore protected from deportation by separate government programs.
13E. Specifically, H.R. 6 would offer protection from deportation to 2.1 million individuals who arrived to the United States as minors (including 600,000 DACA recipients), and 400,000 some beneficiaries of the TPS and DED programs.
13F. Those who arrived as minors would be offered Conditional Permanent Residency, with a path to Lawful Permanent Residency (i.e. a Green Card) & even citizenship; TPS and DED recipients would be granted green card status.

14. In a recent poll, Americans recognize #FakeNews is a serious problem – and it’s been a loooong time coming!

<quote>
14A. [M]ore Americans view made-up news as a very big problem for the country than identify terrorism, illegal immigration, racism and sexism that way.
14B. Additionally, nearly seven-in-ten U.S. adults (68%) say made-up news and information greatly impacts Americans’ confidence in government institutions, ….
14B1. … and roughly half (54%) say it is having a major impact on our confidence in each other.

15. More bogus and purposely misleading lies have been uncovered in the Mueller dossier. This has the potential to thoroughly discredit the entire report – and there is likely more of this still to be uncovered!

<unquote>
15A. In a key finding of the Mueller report, Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked for Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is tied to Russian intelligence.
15B. But hundreds of pages of government documents — which special counsel Robert Mueller possessed since 2018 — describe Kilimnik as a “sensitive” intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters.
15C. Kilimnik was not just any run-of-the-mill source, either. He interacted with the chief political officer at the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, sometimes meeting several times a week to provide information on the Ukraine government.
15D. He relayed messages back to Ukraine’s leaders and delivered written reports to U.S. officials via emails that stretched on for thousands of words, the memos show. The FBI knew all of this, well before the Mueller investigation concluded.
15E. If Mueller’s team can cast such a misleading portrayal of Kilimnik, however, it begs the question of what else might be incorrect or omitted in the report.
15F. Attorney General William Barr has said some of the Mueller report’s legal reasoning conflicts with Justice Department policies. And former Trump attorney John Dowd made a compelling case that Mueller’s report wrongly portrayed a phone message he left for a witness.
15G. A few more such errors and omissions, and Americans may begin to wonder if the Mueller report is worth the paper on which it was printed.

16. What a week! To summarize:

16A. DoJ’s antitrust division is investigating Google. Could Facebook and Tw@tter be far behind?

16B. @POTUS proposed tariffs on Mexico to get them to help cut off illegal immigration into the US, and by the end of the week, they acquiesced!
16C. Mueller’s thugs altered phone transcripts to make @POTUS look bad. The Mueller dossier is looking more like a political hit-job than an investigation report with each passing day.
16D. More Strzok-Page communications transcripts are released that confirm what we’ve all known – Shrillary got kid-gloves treatment when her illegal email server was investigated. The woman is a felon walking!
16E. Obama pops up and warns of “fake videos” to come. Wonder what he’s worried about these days?

16F. Rachel Maddow’s numbers are in the tank. Cry me a river!
16G. More on the #FakeNews front: a new study showed that 92% of legacy media reports in May were anti-Trump. They are the enemy, folks!
16H. John Solomon proposed 10 questions, the answer to which Hillary Clinton owes the American people. A great list, the truthful answers to which will put her in jail where she belongs until the Devil takes over!
16I. Some House Democrats are looking at censuring @POTUS as an alternative to impeachment. Gee, I wonder if the poll numbers have anything to do with that?
16J. Christopher Steele of Russian dossier infamy has agreed to be questioned by US DoJ representatives. I’ll bet the cabal got some tight sphincters when that news was announced.
16K. House Democrats practiced more virtue-signaling by passing a bill granting amnesty to 2.5M illegals. They know it’s going nowhere.
16L. The #FakeNews media are now viewed as a significant concern by many Americans in a recent poll. It’s about damn time people were awakened to this long-standing reality!
16M. And finally, we learn that Konstantin Kilimnik, cited as a primary witness supposedly tied to Russian intelligence, is in reality a long-time confidential informant and intelligence source for the US State Department! The Mueller dossier is fake!
17. That’s all for this week, folks! Looks like the Democrats and cabal are in for some scalding days ahead this summer, as the trend is bad for them and good for America. I’d sure like to see some indictments soon. ///The end.
