There is a massive scandal brewing at the top ranks of America’s premier law enforcement agency.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) prepared a four-page explosive memo recently, based on classified material that purportedly lays out what the FBI and others did to corrupt the 2016 election.
According to Rep. Dave Joyce (R-OH) and others, the memo is “deeply disturbing.”
The memo needs to be released to the public.
The US public has a right to know about the entrenched corruption in the FBI.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) huddled together Saturday to discuss a “never-before-used procedure” for releasing the “shocking” FISA abuse memo.

Chris Farrell from Judicial Watch suggested this on Lou Dobbs Tonight on Wednesday.
Chris Farrell suggested President Trump read the memo at his State of the Union address. Americans need to hear how the DOJ and FBI resemble the KGB. https://t.co/UJcI9o5k9z

Clinton signals thumbs up when told, ‘Trump gotta go’
Former President Bill Clinton thought he was greeting an adoring fan — that is, until he was asked about his former mistress, Monica Lewinsky.
Footage shows Clinton responding to a man’s comments in Manhattan, but the former head of state goes silent when confronted about his extramarital affair.

“You the best president, man. Trump gotta go. Trump gotta go, Bill Clinton,” the man tells the former Arkansas governor, who is in a vehicle at a stop light on a New York street corner.
The former president agrees, giving a thumbs up.
“Tell Hillary I said, ‘What up?’” the man continues, receiving another thumbs up.
“Best president alive, man,” the New Yorker says, before asking, “How’s Monica?”
At this point the president rolls up his window, evidently unwilling to address the matter.
“N***a put the window up. I said, ‘How’s Monica?’” the man filming says laughing.

Still unknown to much of the U.S. population is the fact that they reside within a “Constitution-Free Zone,” as it has been dubbed by the ACLU for many years. In fact, it is estimated that 200 million people (2/3 of the populace) are likely to have their 4th Amendment protections completely disregarded by border patrol, as well as to encounter other routine violations unbecoming to a land of the free.
The entire state of Maine, for example, lies within a 100-mile region that extends inward from all borders of the nation as shown in the image below.
This reality appears to be crystallizing with more of Maine’s residents, as “daily citizenship checks” have begun to spread to buses across the state, according to a report from Maine Public:
The U.S. Border Patrol is running daily citizenship checks on buses traveling from Fort Kent toward the state’s interior and making periodic checks on buses originating in Bangor.
“Our purpose for boarding any conveyances, a bus specifically in this case, would be to question anybody – anybody – about their right to be or remain in the United States, whether they are an alien or not,” says Heibert (chief patrol officer). “That’s kind of the gist of it. We would have to have a reasonable suspicion to think that somebody isn’t a citizen to continue questioning.” (emphasis added)
This type of “fishing expedition” flies directly in the face of the 4th Amendment which guarantees that “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath of affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
Nevertheless, the Constitution-Free Zone, while not an official designation, has been upheld in principle by federal judges who the ACLU argue are reinforcing an outdated concept that was never given a mandate by the people. The ACLU itemizes this overlooked part of history on their website:
As the video above introduces, the definition of “border patrol” no longer means dealing strictly with human agents. The deployment of drones, biometrics, DNA collection, electronics searches and even social media checks are spreading as well.

from Rogue Money:
He invites you to underestimate him. But in the meantime, he is counting your eyelashes.”
— Dr. Jerome Corsi on President Donald J. Trump
It’s been a hectic week in the Life of Q. With tactical precision, the “drops” that began revving up the rolling snowball two months ago are growing into an avalanche. It helps to find a worthy sherpa to guide us through the maze. One such guide who has been more on top of the QAnon phenomenon than most of us is Jerome Corsi. A Youtube decipher session with him was posted yesterday and is linked below.
Jerome Corsi LIVE STREAM DECODE of #QAnon #Qanon8chan posts this week JAN 24 and JAN 25 wide-ranging subjects #ReleaseTheMemo @JulianAssange DOJ FBI, coming disclosures on #Pizzagate HRC & BHO 16-year TREASON CONSPIRACY – Trump COUNTERATTACK https://t.co/tz4efvWHhN 40K LISTENERS
— Jerome Corsi (@jerome_corsi) 26 January 2018
One of the extraneous elements of the interview that stood out to me was how Dr. Corsi was getting interrupted by phone and text message with demands for his attention from various other media outlets. Even Dr. Corsi commented that “it was a very busy day,” however he absolutely desired to remain online with the CBTS team (“Crowd Before The Storm”) because of the criticality of the material that was being presented.
Here are a few of the gems dropped by #Q this week and ably decoded by Dr. Corsi. We are witnessing the methodical, calculated takedown of the Bush-Clinton dynasty. However the larger dismemberment that continues to escape the view of most people, including that of Mr. Corsi, is what W. The Intelligence Insider has said all along: “this is a battle of supremacy and domination” between the century-old Standard Oil Rockefeller Dynasty and the Old World, Old Money societies currently personified by the Rothschilds. The strategy reminds me of an old joke delivered by Bill Cosby: “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.”
The nouveau riche clans like the Rockefellers built their empire by leveraging the technological advancements and Babylonian Priesthood credit systems of their day. But that has always been the modus operandi of the Priesthood: build up a servant class to do your bidding until the time comes for you to advance to the next level. Then you crush the servant, take what they built, and move on to start the next cycle of predation. We are witnessing the turn of that cycle as mankind is being moved now from the 3rd industrial revolution into the 4th. The best of both gangs is being evaluated. The cream is being skinned off and retained. The dross is being discarded. From within the merger of these power elites, a new phoenix will rise.
Therefore this week, some of the more striking statements made by #Q were these:
1. #Q has implied that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was murdered.
#Q is telling us that Antonin Scalia was murdered. It was definitely suspicious and swept under the rug. He was too consistent & served too honorably to be treated this way.https://t.co/1AtuGCjegA#ObamaGate#GreatAwakening#FISAabuse#QAnon#ReleaseTheMemo

2. The 8-year term of Obama and the upcoming 8-year term of Hillary Clinton were supposed to comprise a “16 Year Plan to Destroy America”. HRC was supposed to have won the 2016 election but her team just didn’t rig it as well as they should have.
3. A reference to the date March 13, 2013 was made, a date, which among other things, happens to be the day that Cardinal Bergoglio became Pope Francis.
4. Hints were dropped of potential plans to oust, or even assassinate, the president, a plan hatched up within “secret societies” that involve said FBI agents. About a day later, mainstream news confirmed the existence of such a memo.
People ridiculed me for years because of my belief that "secret societies" are actually running things in this country and world. It's true and we all will know soon what is happening behind the curtain #QAnon #TheGreatAwakening #TheStorm https://t.co/GgzAeP1vD1

5. Former President Barack Obama has suddenly retained legal counsel. Corsi: “Obama now understands that the investigation is turning on HIM.” The #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag flooded Congressional mailboxes with demands to release the Nunes Memo which would implicate Obama in an abuse of FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act).

Under the cover of the pre-Winter Olympics thaw between North and South Korea and the momentary lull in the “fire and fury” rhetoric from the Trump White House, there are growing signs that the Pentagon and the CIA are pressing ahead with preparations for a preemptive war against North Korea, including the use of nuclear weapons.
There have been multiple reports in the American corporate media of behind-the-scenes discussions between the US military and intelligence apparatus and the Trump administration of the feasibility of a so-called “bloody nose” attack, involving US air strikes on North Korean nuclear facilities, with the expectation—however ill-founded—that they would not provoke a full-scale war.
In a rare public speech, CIA Director Mike Pompeo hinted obliquely at these plans. Speaking before the right-wing think tank American Enterprise Institute Tuesday, Pompeo warned that Pyongyang was a “handful of months” away from achieving the capability of staging a nuclear attack against the US mainland.
The CIA director said that Washington was “going to foreclose that risk” and “denuclearize permanently” North Korea.
While asserting that the Trump administration was committed to a “solution through diplomatic means”—a claim belied by Trump’s chiding of his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson last October for “wasting his time” by seeking negotiations with the government of Kim Jung Un—Pompeo said that the CIA was working with the Pentagon to “prepare a series of options to make sure that we can deliver a range of things so the president will have the full suite of possibilities.”
He added that he would “leave to others to address the capacity or the wisdom of a preemptive strike.”
The issue of “capacity,” however, is already being decided through a series of ominous actions taken by the US military.
Earlier this month, the Air Force deployed six B-52H Stratofortress bombers along with 300 Airmen from Barksdale Air Base in Louisiana to Guam to replace six B-1B Lancer bombers. The positioning of the B-52s, which unlike the B-1B bombers are capable of delivering nuclear weapons, marks a major escalation.
“The B-52H’s return to the Pacific will provide [US Pacific Command] and its regional allies and partners with a credible, strategic power projection platform,” the Air Force said in a statement. “The B-52 is capable of flying at high subsonic speeds at altitudes up to 50,000 feet and can carry nuclear or precision guided conventional ordnance with worldwide precision navigation capability. This forward-deployed presence demonstrates the continued commitment of the US to allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific region.”
A week earlier, the Pentagon deployed three B-2 nuclear-capable stealth bombers to the Guam air base.
The deployments mark the first time in nearly two and a half years that all three bombers—the B-52s, B-2s and B-1Bs—have been assembled together in Guam, only 2,200 miles away from targets in North Korea.
The Bloomberg News agency reported Wednesday that the US Air Force “deployed an upgraded version of the U.S’s largest non-nuclear bomb—a 30,000-pound “bunker buster” that can only be carried by the B-2 stealth bombers now based in Guam.”
The weapon, which is larger than the so-called Mother of all Bombs (MOAB) dropped on Afghanistan last April “could be used if the US decided to hit underground nuclear missile facilities in North Korea,” Bloomberg reported
Meanwhile, the USS Carl Vinson, a US Navy Nimitz-class supercarrier, together with its accompanying strike group of guided-missile destroyers and other warships, departed from San Diego earlier this month and is scheduled to arrive off the Korean peninsula in advance of the Winter Olympic Games set to begin in Pyeongchang, South Korea on February 9. It will join the USS Ronald Reagan carrier battle group already deployed in Japan.
The USS Wasp, a 40,000-ton miniature aircraft carrier, is now operating from Japan, carrying F-35B jets, the Pentagon’s most advanced warplanes, which are capable of carrying B61 thermonuclear gravity bombs, a ground-penetrating bunker buster weapon that could be used against underground nuclear and command and control facilities in North Korea.
Alongside this buildup of nuclear strike forces, US ground and airborne troops have been rehearsing for an invasion at bases throughout the United States, while 1,000 Army reservists have been called up for active duty to man “mobilization centers” used for the rapid movement of troops overseas.
These feverish military preparations are taking place as South Korea has persuaded Washington to call off planned joint military exercises on the Korean peninsula itself, which Pyongyang had denounced as a provocation and preparation for invasion.
The South Korean government of President Moon Jae-in has used the upcoming 2018 Olympics Winter Games to resume dialogue with North Korea, which has agreed to send a large delegation to the games, with North and South Korean women ice hockey players joining for the first time in a unified team.
Kim Jong-un issued a conciliatory statement Thursday calling for all Koreans “at home and abroad” to work to “rapidly improve north-south relations” and for a “breakthrough for independent reunification.”
In Davos, meanwhile, South Korea’s Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said at a news briefing,
“The nuclear issue has to be solved through negotiations and diplomatic endeavors. This idea of a military solution is unacceptable.”

The impending economic collapse is hidden from most. People only see a rising stock market, not the negative underlying factors that will cause the whole system to crash.– Peter Schiff
The average middle class household is getting squeezed by an income that is not keeping up with the cost of living. Unfortunately, a major portion of the cost of living has become debt service. Most car buyers assume an almost insane amount of debt to buy a new car. Credit card debt is being used to make ends meet. Low-to-no down payment mortgages have funded most of the homes sold over the last few years. The problem, however, is that the financial system enables this behavior. One has to wonder if this was not intentional…
The quote above is from a recent Peter Schiff podcast. He goes on to say the it’s unclear how quickly the financial system will unravel but “it is close” to happening. I wanted to use that quote because one of the goals of the Short Seller’s Journal is to present hard evidence that brings to your attention the “negative underlying factors” which contradict the “official” narrative about the economy and financial system.
A subscriber of mine sent an article to me in which the Wall Street economist, Joe LaVorgna, was forecasting today’s GDP report to surprise everyone by coming in at 5%. I literally laughed out loud. LaVorgna is a hack who has spent his career on Wall Street preaching fairytales about the economy as a means of assisting the snakeoil salesmen at his bank in their efforts to stuff as much high-commission junk into investor accounts as possible. People like LaVorgna would sell their mother for a small commission. I know this because everyone who was above me in the food-chain in the securities division of Bankers Trust in the 1990’s was like that.
Ultimately the truth will prevail but by then it will be too late. In the meantime, here’s a tell-tale indicator that criminals on Wall Street and at the Fed can’t hide:
The chart above shows the rate of return comparison between the S&P 500 and junk bonds (HYG). Historically going back at least to the 1990’s, stocks tend to move in the same direction as junk bonds on a lagged basis. That lag when I was trading junk bonds was usually anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple months. The massive Central Bank intervention has largely removed the ability of the stock market to perceive fundamental problems developing in the financial and economic system. But the junk bond market is starting to smell problems.
Morgan Stanley’s wealth management division announced right after New Year’s that it was taking its recommended portfolio allocation in junk bonds down to zero. The rationale was that, while tax cut euphoria might inject fresh momentum into “high-flying stocks, the boost may be short-lived and will mask balance sheet weaknesses” – i.e. developing credit problems. The Morgan Stanley report further explained that “credit markets figure this out before equities” and that they are preparing “for a deterioration in lower-quality earnings in the U.S. led by lower operating margins.”
I nearly fell off my chair when I saw this commentary from Morgan Stanley. In my 32 years of active participation in the financial markets I can not recall any brokerage firm ever issuing a stark warning like this about any sector of the financial markets.
At some point the fundamental problems will become too obvious for stocks to ignore and there will be abrupt sell-offs. The 360 point drop from top to bottom last Tuesday was a hint of what’s to come. Eventually the Central Banks will be unable to intervene and manipulate the type of bounce that was engineered at Tuesday’s bottom and that followed-through on Wednesday and beyond.

Nearly a week after a team of private investigators that included several former Toronto homicide detectives said they found evidence of foul play, the Toronto Police Department said Friday that they will now investigate the deaths of billionaire philanthropists Barry and Honey Sherman as a “targeted” double-homicide, according to CBC. The police made the announcement during a 1 pm ET press conference.
Barry, 75, and Honey, 70, were found dead by a real estate agent in the basement of their Toronto mansion on Dec. 15. An autopsy revealed the cause of death for both to be “ligature neck compression,” meaning strangulation. Police initially believed it was a “suspicious” murder-suicide. The Shermans are believed to possess a fortune worth nearly $5 billion thanks to Barry Sherman’s Apotex, a Canadian pharmaceutical giant that specializes in producing generic copies of popular drugs. At the time of his death, Sherman and his company were embroiled in multiple lawsuits.
A source with direct knowledge of the parallel probe told CBC Toronto that private investigators believe that the billionaire Toronto couple was murdered by multiple killers.
The couple’s children expressed outrage at the media’s willingness to jump to conclusions in the murder case after the deaths were reported as a “murder-suicide” before the official police announcement.
As we reported previously, the Sherman’s were popular on Toronto’s gala circuit and were said to be excited about their newest grandchild at the time of their deaths.
Indeed, the Sherman’s gifts included multimillion-dollar donations to hospitals, schools and charities and had buildings named in their honor. They also gave generously to Jewish organizations.

Syrian government forces have discovered a considerable amount of Israeli-made landmines, toxic materials and munitions left behind by members of Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in the eastern sector of the country’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr.
Syria’s official news agency SANA reported that army troopers made the discovery in the villages of al-Sayyal and Hassrat in addition to the town of al-Jalaa as they were combing the areas of hidden ordnance and unexploded devices.
This is not the first time that Syrian government forces have made such findings from terrorists’ hideouts across the war-ravaged Arab country.
On December 10, 2017, Syrian troops discovered large amounts of weapons, various types of ammunition, explosive devices, landmines, communication devices, armored vehicles, car bombs, and tanks left behind by Daesh terrorists.
A Syrian army commander, speaking on condition of anonymity, told SANA that the scale of the discovery is proof of the direct and systematic support provided to Daesh by a number of regional and trans-regional states.
Syrian military forces also discovered a large cache of Israeli-made weapons in the strategic town of Mayadin, located about 44 kilometers southeast of Dayr al-Zawr, on October 19.
The weapons included several types of heavy, medium and light firearms that beside Israel, came from some European countries as well as members of the NATO military alliance.
An unnamed Syrian military source said government troops had also found mortars, artillery equipment, large quantities of anti-armor munitions and a NATO- made 155mm cannon with a range of up to 40km (about 25 miles).
