"Strzok’s notes...reveal that former President Obama, James Comey, Sally Yates, Joe Biden, and apparently Susan Rice discussed the transcripts of Flynn’s calls and how to proceed against him."…
"Mr. Obama himself directed that “the right people” investigate General Flynn. This caused former FBI Director Comey to acknowledge the obvious: General Flynn’s phone calls with Ambassador Kislyak “appear legit.”"
"According to Strzok’s notes, it appears that Vice President Biden personally raised the idea of the Logan Act. That became an admitted pretext to investigate General Flynn."

On point.

But I think the underlying fight is still a bit larger.
Capitalism is "a social system based on the principle of individual rights. Politically, it is the system of laissez-faire (freedom). Legally it is a system of objective laws (rule of law as opposed to rule of man)."
Globalism promotes Globally centralized control of laws.

Globalism inherently blends rule of law with rule of man.

Globalism comes into existence through ownership of laws.

And through ownership of law, Globalism gains ownership of nations.

Since some want to talk of defunding, perhaps it's time to have a long-awaited conversation about defunding the UN.
In 2016-2017, the United States paid 22% of the UN’s Regular Budget and 28.4% of the Peacekeeping Budget.

The other four permanent members of the Security Council paid a combined total of 18.3% of the Regular Budget and 23.5% of the Peacekeeping Budget.
This disparity in payments creates a very real budgetary problem.

The vast majority of nations have every incentive to inflate and/or expand the UN’s budgets as they receive the benefits while effectively paying almost none of the costs.

Transcript of AG Barr's Face the Nation Interview
h/t @OmaErin…
MARGARET BRENNAN: You're saying your understanding and the law, as you interpret it and would support is that the president has the ability to put active duty troops on American streets, even if governors object?

BARR: It's happened numerous times. And the answer to that is yes.

Antonio Gramsci:

“Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society”

Gramsci, a Marxist theorist, was also a founding member of the Communist Party of Italy.
Gramsci embraced gradualism – a policy of gradual change as a means to his end.

He recognized that this process must be lengthy, methodical and persistent – or as he put it “a long march through the institutions”.

A slow transformation from within.
Gramsci’s ideas came to the United States not through his own person, but through the Frankfurt School.

The Frankfurt School employed a technique invented by Max Horkheimer called Critical Theory – a social theory oriented toward critiquing and changing society as a whole.

I am not verified. No Blue Check.

But I promise you this.

I will always provide you with what I believe to be the truth.

And, where possible, I will provide backup.

Rosenstein buried the FBI, and particularly McCabe, today.
RR: "I didn't rely on Mr. McCabe...he did not reveal the Comey memos to me for a week...and he revealed them to me only a couple of hours until they showed up in the NYT..."
"...And he did not reveal to me that he was having internal deliberations with his team about whether to target very high profile people for investigation...that's the kind of thing I needed to know."

Perhaps it's just me, but the gentleman reacting and taking away the AR-15 does not react as I would expect a civilian to react.

Note the already drawn handgun, his restraint and the immediately dropped cartridge.
Some saying he was security for media.

If so, he seems well-trained.

Long before you sent out your snide remark, I sent you the tweet below.

Although we don't yet have details, I attempted to give you acknowledgement.

A bit disappointed, honestly.
Boente remains in place until June 30.

Which seems a bit odd if he was indeed "forced out"

As I said with every prior tweet, we don't yet have the details.

Regardless, whatever is the Truth is singularly most important.

Cheap, premature "victory laps" should be below us all.

Antifa claims to be aligned against fascism but they often embody all that fascism implies.

Fascists are inherently opposed to any form of democracy.

Open and free elections, along with free speech, are not to be tolerated.

More simply said:

Antifa = Anti-First Amendment.
Canadian economist Philip Cross:

"Fascism is best thought of as a nationalistic version of socialism.”

As you read theses docs, bear in mind that the FBI was closing their investigation into @GenFlynn on Jan 4, 2017 - having found no wrongdoing.

Strzok then intervened noting "7th Floor [FBI] involved"

On Jan 5th, Comey voiced "concerns" re: Flynn to Obama.
Additionally, based on these innocuous - and appropriate - conversations [my opinion], the Obama Administration decided to go after General Flynn.

This is utterly disgraceful.

@SallyQYates - what say you?
3 1/2 Years. 41 months.

Of frantic media hyperventilation.

And countless MSM demagogues falsely claiming Russia collusion.

Over this??

There had better be some serious pushback.

We cannot let this happen again.

Extend this argument somewhat.

How many of our behaviors should be changed simply to "make others happy"?
And where does that stop?
General courtesy is one thing.

But alteration of daily behavior simply to "please" others is something else entirely.

You could extend your argument to mean I shouldn't wear, display or say something political as it might "offend" someone.

That is not the way of our country.

On May 11, 2017, McCabe testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee and told Congress that there had been “no effort to impede our investigation to date.”

In other words, McCabe testified that there was no evidence of obstruction from Trump or his administration.
McCabe failed to inform the committee that he was actively considering opening an obstruction-of-justice probe into Trump—a path he would initiate just five days later.
To fully understand just how outlandish this was, see the testimony of former FBI General Counsel James Baker as he describes the discussions that took place at the highest levels of the FBI following Comey's firing:…

Will this be an Open Hearing?

Of the many potential hearings, this one, almost above all, should be available for everyone to watch.

A lot of questions to be answered.
Among many, many things, hoping for a bit more color on this:

@dlboardman @ChanelRion The single biggest political story of generations is not only being ignored by the media. It is being actively covered up.

One would have thought this might upset you more than a reporter who asks real questions.
@dlboardman @ChanelRion Apparently, Mr. Boardman decided to delete the tweet that he posted to Channel Rion. Without any comment.

It seems notable that a self-proclaimed "Journalist/educator & Dean" who decided to lecture Rion on "journalism" would act in such a fashion.

h/t @Milagaai for screenshot. Image
@dlboardman @ChanelRion @Milagaai My apologies for the misspelling of Chanel's name.

So Mueller DID interview for the FBI Director job.
Note: Mueller had previously served as the FBI Director from 2001 to 2013—two years beyond the normal 10-year tenure for an FBI Director.

Any additional appointment would - once again - require special Senate approval.

Unlikely he was being seriously considered.
I often find myself coming back to a tidbit from Rosenstein's testimony.

Where he disclosed that he & Sessions agreed on need to have Comey removed as FBI Director.

In Winter of early 2017.

Before Sessions had been confirmed as AG.

RR not yet nominated as DAG.

"Comey said he does have some concerns that incoming NSA Flynn is speaking frequently with w/Russian ambassador Kislyak. Comey said that could be an issue as it relates to sharing sensitive information."

President Obama asked if Comey was saying that the NSC should not pass sensitive information related to Russia to Flynn."
"Comey replied 'potentially.' He added that he has no indication thus far that Flynn passed classified information to Kislyak, but he noted 'the level of communication is unusual'."

"The President asked Comey to inform if anything changes in the next few weeks..."

Barr also stated, yet once again:

"We can’t allow this ever to happen again."
And stated that "what happened to the President in the 2016 election and throughout the first two years of his administration was abhorrent. It was a grave injustice and it was unprecedented in American history."
Barr also told us that:

"The law enforcement and intelligence apparatus of this country were involved in advancing a false and utterly baseless Russian collusion narrative against the President."

I've always thought there is a razor's edge being walked - in relation to the FISA Court, our Justice System, our political system, etc.

But I remain unconvinced that same edge requires nothing be done.

I still believe certain examples must be made.
It's notable that Barr has said one thing time and again:

"We can’t allow this ever to happen again."

That is a laudable goal.

I think that's why he decided to return from retirement to once again become the AG.
Although I understand the desire to see Obama himself prosecuted, there are real implications - some that are not good for our nation.

But the punishment that comes from exposure, discredit & disgrace is also real and lasting - and comes with it's own form of deterrence.

I thought that Barr's comments today regarding what transpired and what Durham's investigation is - and is not - currently focused on, were significant enough to transcribe in their entirety.

Reminder: Tapper was mad at Buzzfeed for publishing the Steele dossier on Jan 10, 2017 because "your move makes the story less serious and credible[.] I think you damaged its impact.”…
The Steele Dossier was never meant to be published.

It was meant to be mined for ongoing damaging stories concocted by the MSM.
