MYSTERY As DOJ & FBI Land A 757 Jet In Clinton’s Hometown Little Rock, Arkansas; Load It With Boxes & Documents
August 9, 2018

This is very interesting. A stealth DOJ flight into Little Rock and then back to Virginia … or would have been stealth if it were up to the mainstream media.

Jumbo jet too.

Apparently loaded with evidence.

“Yesterday 8/8/18 The @TheJusticeDept had a Boeing 757-223 tail number N119NA in Little Rock, AR. A local radio station reported #DOJ employees were loading boxes of documents into the plane. Important to note @ClintonFdn located there…

Thoughts?” — Basham

Mueller’s Prosecutors File Complaint Against Judge Ellis
August 9, 2018

Mueller’s prosecutors filed a formal complaint against Judge T.S. Ellis this week claiming he violated protocol by ‘unfairly’ blasting the prosecutors over a witness.

Mueller’s team of liberal hack lawyers are becoming increasingly frustrated with Judge Ellis to the point of being pushed to tears.

In the formal complaint filed by Mueller’s team, they claim the judge’s action on Wednesday in regards to a witness left a negative impression on them.

“The Court’s sharp reprimand of government counsel in front of the jury on August 8 was…erroneous. And, while mistakes are a natural part of the trial process, the mistake here prejudiced the government.”

Far left Politico reported:

The 78-year-old Ronald Reagan appointee has repeatedly tweaked Mueller’s team, on everything from the logic of their assertions to a prosecutor’s informality in answering a question with a “yeah” instead of “yes.” He has hurried along their case and blocked them from introducing some evidence of Manafort’s lavish lifestyle.

The ‘Magnitsky Trio’ Pushes For War With Russia By Pressing For New ‘Crushing’ Sanctions
August 3, 2018

If half of what I have come to understand about the Curious Case of Bill Browder is true, then the “Magnitsky Trio” of Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Ben Cardin are guilty of espionage, at a minimum.

Why? Because they know that Browder’s story about Sergei Magnitsky is a lie. And that means that when you tie in the Trump Dossier, Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS, the Skripal poisoning and the rest of this mess, these men are consorting with foreign governments and agencies against the sitting President.

As Lee Stranahan pointed out recently on Fault Lines, Cardin invited Browder to testify to Congress in 2017 to push through last year’s sanctions bill, a more stringent version of the expiring Magnitsky Act of 2011, which has since been used to ratchet up pressure on Russia.

Cardin knew there were problems with Browder’s story about Magnitsky’s death and yet brought him into Congress to testify to secure the vote.

That’s suborning perjury, as Lee points out.

Just the holes in Browder’s story about Magnitsky’s death are alone enough to warrant a perjury charge on him. If you haven’t read Luck Komisar’s detailed breakdown of Browder’s dealings then you owe it to yourself to do so.

On Russians, Warmongers, Election Meddling, and Fair Play
August 9, 2018

I want to offer NEO readers a revelation today. As an American, a human being, or as a geopolitical analyst, I have no problem whatsoever with Russia meddling in the U.S. or any other elections. Even if the allegations are true, my Mamma always told me “turnabout is fair play.” And in this, I firmly believe. Here’s a “fair play” look at why every decent American should just toughen up on RussiaGate.

First, let me say that I have no indication that ANY Russian official had ANYTHING to do with the American elections other than rooting for this politician as opposed to another. Now that this is settled, I want to present a series of proofs that the United States has meddled in just about every election on Earth. Let’s start with Moldova in 2005.

March of 2005, George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, along with Senator John McCain’s International Republican Institute, and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, conspired to change the course of Moldova politics. This is not conjecture, Soros’ OSF bragged about it here. Also in on the electoral rigging were Brock Bierman, Senior Advisor, Bureau for Europe and Eurasia, USAID, Ambassador John T. Stewart, OSCE Elections Observer to Moldova, Lee McManis, U.S. Department of State in Moldova, and agents from the Commission for Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE), to name a few. Other participants in the Moldova political orchestra included Ukrainian parliamentarians in Petro Poroshenko’s block, Armenian national figures, Georgian officials, and German officials and a cohort of EU officials, representatives of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Offices (KAS), and etc., etc., etc. Orchestrated, funded, strategized, rigged, as I said.

Moving forward with “proofs” on U.S. meddling we find prima facie evidence provided by none other than the Council on Foreign Relations. I quote from their report of March 2006 on the use of so-called soft power:

“Democracy-promotion has long been an aspect of U.S. foreign policy, but it became a central component after September 11.”

Is the US OK with killing children?

Watch Reporters Slam US For Refusing To Condemn Saudi-US Airstrike On Yemen School Bus In Live Briefing
August 9, 2018

Just as expected, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert refused to condemn Thursday’s coalition airstrike on a school bus in Yemen, which left as many as 50 people dead and 63 injured — the vast majority of which were children.

As we reported previously, Saudi-US/UK coalition jets scored a direct hit on the school bus packed with children as it drove through a crowded market place in Dahyan, in the rebel-held north of Yemen.

During the State Department’s daily press briefing, Nauert was asked point blank by journalists, starting with the AP’s Matt Lee, whether the US condemns the attack.

The whole testy exchange on Yemen is worth watching, especially as Matt Lee lays out the case for direct US complicity in the attack on the bus packed with children from the start of his question: “The Saudis obviously are the ones who conducted this, but they do that with weapons supplied by the U.S., with training supplied by the U.S., and with targeting information, targeting data, supplied by the U.S. How can something like this happen?” he said.

Jim/Bill,

With a little over 7 weeks until the end of the U.S. government’s fiscal year, we stand at $795.5 billion budget deficit currently.

The question remains…..will we hit $1 trillion?

Certainly the 2020 timeline is out of whack.

Federal Budget Deficit Projected to Soar to Over $1 Trillion in 2020
April 9, 2018

WASHINGTON — The federal government’s annual budget deficit is set to widen significantly in the next few years, and is expected to top $1 trillion in 2020 despite healthy economic growth, according to new projections from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released Monday.

The national debt, which has exceeded $21 trillion, will soar to more than $33 trillion in 2028, according to the budget office. By then, debt held by the public will almost match the size of the nation’s economy, reaching 96 percent of gross domestic product, a higher level than any point since just after World War II and well past the level that economists say could court a crisis.

The fear among some economists is that rising deficits will drive up interest rates, raise borrowing costs for the private sector, tank stock prices and slow the economy, which would only drive the deficit higher.

“Such high and rising debt would have serious negative consequences for the budget and the nation,” said Keith Hall, the director of the budget office. “In particular, the likelihood of a fiscal crisis in the United States would increase.”

Judicial Watch Sues Justice Dept. for Communications between Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele, and Fusion GPS
August 9, 2018

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for all communications from the offices of the Deputy Attorney General and the office of the Director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force related to Bruce G. Ohr, his wife Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele, and Fusion GPS (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-01854)). Bruce Ohr is the former Associate Deputy Attorney General and remains Organized Crime Task Force Director.

Until his dossier-related demotion, Bruce Ohr was the fourth-ranked official at DOJ. The House Intelligence Committee memo released by Chairman Devin Nunes on February 2 says that Nellie Ohr was “employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump” and that Bruce Ohr passed the results of that research, which was paid for by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign, to the FBI. The “salacious and unverified” dossier was used to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) surveillance warrant to spy on Carter Page.

The suit was filed after the Justice Department failed to respond to a May 29, 2018, FOIA request for:

All records from the Office of the Deputy Attorney General relating to Fusion GPS, Nellie Ohr and/or British national Christopher Steele, including but not limited to all records of communications about and with Fusion GPS officials, Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele.

All records from the office of former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce G. Ohr relating to Fusion GPS, Nellie Ohr and/or British national Christopher Steele, including but not limited to all records of communications (including those of former Associate Deputy Attorney General Ohr) about and with Fusion GPS officials, Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele.

“LOOK AT ME!” Judge Ellis Gets Into 10-Minute Argument With Mueller’s Prosecutors
August 6, 2018

Rick Gates, Paul Manafort’s former business associate took the witness stand Monday afternoon in the bank fraud and tax evasion case against Manafort.

After jurors were dismissed, Judge T.S. Ellis scolded one of Mueller’s prosecutors and a 10-minute courtroom spat ensued.

FOX News reported, at one point Judge Ellis felt disrespected after one of Mueller’s prosecutors looked down instead of looking directly at him and screamed, “Look at me!”

“You looked down as if to say ‘that’s B.S.!’” Ellis said. “I’m up here!”

Class is in session!

Via Fox News:

U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III specifically pushed Andres on why the prosecution was moving slowly with Rick Gates – the former Manafort business partner who testified on Monday – and specifically to describe the link between wealthy Ukrainian politicos and Manafort. Ellis argued that the connection was not the basis of the case.
