Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton took to YouTube Monday to report former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, was “hiding everything on her private email server.”
The “everything,” Fitton is referring to may hold the key to a plethora of scandals surrounding Clinton, everything from the FBI’s handling of her email investigation to alleged pay-to-play scheme between the Clinton Foundation and State Department agencies. Fitton’s latest video begs the question: why is the Trump State Department taking its sweet time to release the rest of Clinton’s emails while she was Secretary of State?
Releasing the documents will only further granulize Clinton’s corrupt practices, lending even MORE evidence that the Justice Department must finally get serious about investigating Hillary.
Fitton’s latest report underscores an important and unfortunate reality: not enough attention is being paid to the original Clinton email scandal — the missing 33,00 emails.
In addition to Fitton’s report, the New York Post‘s Paul Sperry argued last week that Clinton’s 33,000 emails, which as Fitton hints, are housed on the private email server that is “hiding EVERYTHING,” may not be missing after all.

The Hungarian government is discussing a proposal tomorrow, which could even make it possible to ban George Soros from Hungary. It was Hungarian news site Origo, that reported about the initiative.
According to 444.hu, it has already been known that on Wednesday the government discusses the details of an “anti-Soros” law, that several Fidesz politicians have been talking about recently.
The website reminds that the Minister of Interior, Sandor Pinter, said earlier that banning Soros from Hungary is not possible, because the financier is a Hungarian citizen.
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, the ruling party’s communications director said that Fidesz national board has endorsed the public’s rejection of the “Soros Plan”. In the resolution, the board rejects the endeavour to transform Hungary into a country of immigrants, Balazs Hidveghi said.
The party calls on the government to use every means necessary to halt implementation of the “Soros Plan” by putting legal restrictions, if necessary, on the immigration activities and further spread of the “Soros Network”, he added.

Stephen Paddock sent a series of emails suggesting that he was part of a group selling “a huge selection” of weapons in the Las Vegas area.
New details have been released from the FBI’s investigation into the Las Vegas Shooting, and the information from suspect Stephen Paddock’s email account in the months leading up to the shooting is giving new insight into why he may have been hoarding two dozen guns in his hotel room.
The deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history was blamed on one man within hours, and the FBI has consistently claimed that Paddock was a “lone wolf” shooter who intentionally transported an arsenal of guns, ammunition, and supplies to his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, and then unleashed barrage of gunfire from the bedroom window that killed 58 people and injured more than 500.
While the surveillance footage from Paddock’s stay at the hotel has yet to be released, the newly unsealed court documents are finally giving some insight into his conduct in the months leading up to the shooting on Oct. 1.
An email exchange from email@example.com, a Microsoft account FBI agents claimed was used by Paddock, was included in an affidavit reported by NPR. The date was July 6, 2017—about three months before the shooting—and while the FBI noted that it is unclear who is behind firstname.lastname@example.org, the email account Paddock was contacting, the information included is significant.
“…[email@example.com] sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org which read, ‘try an ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area,’ Later the day, an email was received back from email@example.com to [firstname.lastname@example.org] that read, ‘we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try.’ And lastly, [email@example.com sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org read, ‘for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.’ Investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack that occurred at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.”
In the first message, Paddock claimed that the recipient would have the opportunity to try out the weapons before they purchased them. He then wrote “We have huge selection,” indicating that he was not working alone, and he said he was located “in the Las Vegas area.”
While Paddock did live in Mesquite, Nevada, and reports claimed that he was a retired man living with his girlfriend, he made trips to Las Vegas often to gamble, and those who knew him described him as “low key and relaxed, a good guy.” His past included jobs with the IRS and the Department of Defense.
However, the email exchanges released by the FBI indicate that Paddock was presenting himself as some sort of arms dealer, sending an email that said, “for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.”
The email address Paddock was contacting responded and said, “we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try,” which as the report noted, left investigators wondering if Paddock was sending test emails to another account he owned, or if he was contacting another dealer or a customer.
Federal agents were granted warrants to search Paddock’s Facebook, Instagram and Amazon accounts, along with a locked phone that was found in the hotel room. These details are the first that have been released from Paddock’s online communications, and the documents also include significant details about what the FBI has learned about Paddock’s girlfriend.
Within hours of the time police named Stephen Paddock as the suspect in the shooting, his girlfriend Marilou Danley was also named publicly. Authorities claimed she was visiting family in the Philippines, and they ultimately determined that she was not complicit in the massacre.
In addition to reports claiming that Danley told investigators that her fingerprints may be on some of the bullets stored in Paddock’s home—and they were—the report from NPR also noted that the timeline of Danley’s Facebook account suggests that she knew Paddock was involved in something.

Congressional investigators probing the origins of the Steele dossier have set their sights on a brand new target — The Obama State Department. Were Obama State Department officials responsible for spreading discredited tidbits compiled in the dossier through the media? Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes may soon find out.
Byron York of the Washington Examiner reports the Obama State Department is now being probed as to whether or not they had a hand in the dossier. York notes Steele was viewed inside the Obama State Department as a valuable source for intelligence on all things Russia. Obama State officials made a habit of disseminating reports the former British spy authored for private clients around the Department:
A book published in November by a correspondent at the Guardian, “Collusion: Secret meetings, dirty money, and how Russia helped Donald Trump win,” noted that Steele’s 2010 work on the World Cup soccer corruption investigation won him the trust not only of the FBI, but the State Department as well. From author Luke Harding:
The [soccer] episode burnished Steele’s reputation inside the U.S. intelligence community and the FBI. Here was a pro, a well-connected Brit, who understood Russian espionage and its subterranean tricks. Steele was regarded as credible. Between 2014 and 2016, Steele authored more than a hundred reports on Russia and Ukraine. These were written for a private client but shared widely within the State Department and sent up to Secretary of State John Kerry and to Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, who was in charge of the U.S. response to the Ukraine crisis. Many of Steele’s secret sources were the same sources who would supply information on Trump. One former State Department envoy during the Obama administration said he read dozens of Steele’s reports on Russia. The envoy said that on Russia, Steele was “as good as the CIA or anyone.” Steele’s professional reputation inside U.S. agencies would prove important the next time he discovered alarming material, and lit the fuse again.
Hillary Clinton, who admitted her 2016 presidential campaign helped fund the dossier, was Obama’s Secretary of State between January 21, 2009 – February 1, 2013.
Former British spy Christopher Steele, who was tasked with compiling the ‘Trump dossier’ for opposition research firm Fusion GPS, recently admitted in court that the discredited document contains “limited intelligence.”
Steele also admitted part of “his final December memo,” was unvetted.
“Such intelligence was not actively sought; it was merely received,” Steele added.
As The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila reported, it is now being reported by Paul Sperry of the New York Post that the Senate Judiciary Committee has discovered “credible evidence of a CRIME” committed by Christopher Steele in his dealings with the FBI.
“DEVELOPING: Senate Judiciary Committee has discovered “credible evidence of a CRIME” committed by dirty Hillary DOSSIER author Christopher STEELE in his dealings with the FBI … declassified memo detailing the alleged crime forthcoming …” Sperry tweeted.

To “protect” society from the likes of “criminals” who’d dare to help out the homeless, police raided a park Sunday and arrested more than a dozen people.
El Cajon, CA — In spite of the myriad of stories over the years, in which police and governments across the United States have been exposed as tyrants, cities and their armed agents continue to persecute good people who help those less fortunate than them. The latest case of police oppressing those who’d dare to help the homeless comes out of El Cajon, California this week in which more than a dozen good Samaritans were arrested.
In October of last year, the El Cajon City Council unanimously voted to ban the act of sharing food on city-owned property. This ban was put in place for the ostensible purpose of preventing the spread of hepatitis A.
While the government held the fear of hep A over everyone’s head as a reason to not share food, their hypocrisy was revealed in the details of the law.
If a group of people attempts to hand out food as a charitable act, they are in violation of the law and are subject to arrest. However, if a group of people hands out food for non-charitable acts—such as birthday parties, group events, etc.—then they are not in violation of the law and are not subject to arrest.
Naturally, the good citizens of El Cajon saw the law for what it is—as hep A certainly cannot differentiate between charitable and non-charitable food—and they moved to stop this war on the homeless.
A group called Break the Ban organized the event on Sunday knowing they were in violation of the law but also knowing that what they were doing was morally right.
“It was absolutely necessary to break this law until they were willing to enforce it, and, now that they have, we will continue this fight in court,” said another organizer, Shane Parmely.
Mark Lane, one of the organizers of the event told the San Diego Union-Tribune that more than a dozen people—including a 14-year-old child—were arrested at the Wells Park.
Showing the sheer hypocritical nature of the arrests, the group was also handing out toiletries which would actually help to prevent the spread of hep A, yet they were still arrested.
“This park is part of city property so you aren’t allowed to food share,” the officer in the video below says. “…If you guys continue to food share, then you guys are subject to arrest, all right?”
Knowing that what they were doing was right, despite the police making their announcement, the group disobeyed and continued to hand out food and supplies to the homeless.
That is when the arrests began.
Most of the folks arrested were each charged with a misdemeanor for violating El Cajon municipal code 1.28.010, which prohibits “food sharing” in public spaces for charitable reasons.
In what was likely a PR move by police, none of the people who were arrested were actually taken to jail. Instead, they were given notices to appear in court for their charges.
Smugly speaking to NBC 7, Councilmember Ben Kalasho addressed the good Samaritans, telling them that if they really wanted to help “you can go out there, pick them up, take them back to your house and feed them and board them and room them and have them take a shower if you’re really wanting to help.”
However, this would most likely be against some other ordinance. As TFTP reported last week, cities have ordinances in places that prohibit property owners from providing temporary refuge to homeless people unless they meet rigorous industrial standards.
Greg Schiller, a good Samaritan in Chicago, learned the hard way about the police state who forced him to stop helping homeless people by threatening to condemn his home and charge him.
The good news is that the kind-hearted folks at Break the Ban have no intention of stopping what they are doing. They are going to continue to break the law because people need their help.
“Our goal is to get the ban overturned and sit down and figure out how to humanely deal with something that’s not going away,” Lane said.
Change does not come from sitting idly by and rolling over. True change comes when good people decide it is time to break bad laws.

The head of UN immigration, boldy and inappropriately stated that the United States should be celebrating mass immigration. The UN is championing the fact that Europe has been overrun by millions of immigrants from Africa and the Middle East from cultures that do not assimilate with the West. The leaders of Western governments are ignoring the rapes, the murders and the massive accomodations that the locals are being subjected to.
In Germany, people cannot cannot criticize the government’s immigration policies, in social media, or risk going to prison. German citizens have been incarcerated for Facebook posts about immigration which are not flattering or supportive of the insanity. Many German citizens have been forced, as previously reported on The Common Sense Show, to vacate their rented homes in favor of the new immigrants. In Sweden, the number one crime is the rape of Swedish women by immigrants. Please spare me the argument that not all the immigrant participate in these heinous crimes. The fact is that these crimes present a clear and present danger to the locals that did not exist prior to the massive wave of disorganized and unscreened immigration.
In Britain, their National Health Service is on the verge of collapse. Why? It has been crushed under the weight of immigrants that take from the system and do not put anything back (eg pay taxes).
Despite all of these problems, the United Nations champions massive, disorganized immigration. Why? Because it serves to dilute the culture. Oh, I know this is a conspiracy theory and as some would have you believe there is no such thing as a conspiracy. But before you can install a new world order, you must destroy the existing cultures and the spirit of nationalism.
Thing are so bad in France, that the French Jews are saynig in ever-increasing numbers that they are going to have to relocate for their own safety and some are even saying that by 2030, France will be empty of Jews. And through all of this, the United Nations thinks that this is a good idea.
Why is it that the Russians are responsive to the needs and safety of their people? Their women are not being raped by immigrants. Their Jewish population does not feel that their entire ethnicity is under threat. Their healthcare is not near collapse because of immigrant related expense.
The Russians are fiercely nationalistic. I deplore their system of government, but I praise their sensitivty to their people. If one wants to enter Russa as an immigrant, they must have permission of the government. They are jailed if they do not. They must also prove they are worthy of being admitted to the country. The Russians have a merit based system of immigration. Unless one can prove that they have something to contribute to Russia, they do not get in. And they damn sure don’t have people marching in the streets demanding special priviliages that the citizens of that country do not get. The Russians make it clear to immigrants that they must have skills that contribute to the country or they do not get in.
As an aside, the Russians drill the population on how to survive a nuclear attack and actually rehearse it. In America, as evidenced by the Hawaii fake attack, we scare the hell out of the people by mistaken announcements of war in which our total lack of citizen preparation shows up. Out government, in this instance could give a damn about the people. In this spirit, the government does not feel the need for merit based immigration. To hell with the citizens. And people wonder why I advocate for unelecting most incumbents at the Congressional level.
Illegal immigration is producing a financial burden to this country that is unsustainable.
Unauthorized immigrants make up 5.1% of the U.S. labor force. In the U.S. labor force, there were 8.1 million unauthorized immigrants either working or looking for work in 2015. Among the states, Nevada (10%), California (9%), Texas (9%) and New Jersey (8%) had the highest shares of unauthorized immigrants in their labor forces. In most cases, taxes are not being collected. Off-the-books workers are being abused because who are they going to complain to?
About 7% of K-12 students had at least one unauthorized immigrant parent in 2014. Among these students, about eight-in-ten (79%) were born in the U.S. In Nevada, almost one-in-five students (18%) have at least one unauthorized immigrant parent, the largest share in the nation. Other top states on this measure are California (13%), Texas (13%) and Arizona (11%). This is a financial burden that our schools cannot bear. One could argue that if these people were citizens, they would be paying taxes and supporting their education. One could also argue that if we had proper border enforcement, this would be a moot point.
At the heart of the resettlement of well-meaning and deserved refugees are radicalized Muslims who mean us harm. What percent would make up that make up this population who would mean us harm? The FBI has repeatedly stated that about 10% of all Muslims are radicalized to various degrees. But yes, I am talking about these Middle East immigrants who have the very same same mindset that have invaded Europe and we see act after act of terrorism and criminal behavior in Europe.
At the heart of the resettlement are private, for-profit organizations who are masquerading as churches involved in a humanitarian cause. When in fact, these churches who are actually for-profit ventures that have taken over the “Christian function” and are selling America out under the guise of Christian humanitarian causes. Catholic Charities leads the way, followed by the Lutherans and the Episcopalians. And of course, a strong case can be made that the Pope has sold out American Catholics with his indefensible plan on Muslim immigration and his notion of how the middle class is expected to accept and fund this invasion with their own money.

The drive to destroy President Trump has reached a fever pitch. Virtually the entire Western media, and much of the political leadership, who have ranted against Russia and against Trump’s imagined “collusion” with Putin, are now aware that the “Russiagate” operation, set in motion by British MI6 operative Christopher Steele, is collapsing — and, in fact, they themselves now face exposure and possible criminal prosecution for their own crimes, including treason. Desperate to stop Trump’s effort to restore good relations with Russia and China, and to save themselves from such criminal prosecution, they have unleashed a campaign to portray Trump as a deranged madman and a racist.
In the midst of this, the state of Hawaii, and by extension the entire country, was driven into a state of absolute terror Sunday morning when the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency sent out an “Emergency Alert” to every cell phone in the state, reading: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”
Within three minutes the warning was determined by military officials to be totally false, but for the next 38 minutes the vast majority of the residents and tourists in Hawaii were not informed of that fact, and were subjected to the horror of believing they and their families were about to die. People were calling loved ones to send a last message that they loved them. Cars were abandoned on the highways, as people ran for shelter, but knowing that there was nowhere to hide.
Investigations are proceeding, but the report that it was simply a mistake — someone pushing a button by accident — is hardly credible. It must be noted that the U.S. media have barely covered the major breakthrough in relations between North and South Korea, or that South Korean President Moon Jae-in publicly thanked President Trump for his role in bringing about the negotiations by implementing both tough sanctions and simultaneous diplomatic measures. Instead, the media and most political leaders have ignored that reality, while escalating the fear-mongering and the warnings of a preemptive war as almost inevitable.
The next issue of the EIR weekly magazine will carry an article titled: “Trump Versus Durbin: Who Is the Real Hypocrite Fostering Institutional Racism? Why Is This Happening Now?” It shows that the campaign to paint Trump as a racist, led by the Democratic Senator from Illinois Dick Durbin, is coming from precisely those who have turned much of Central America and the Caribbean into drug-infested and economically destroyed hell-holes, through their imposition of “free trade” pacts and the legalization of drugs, leaving these nations at the mercy of the banks and the drug gangs. They have done nothing to reverse the economic destruction of Africa, which only now, through China’s New Silk Road process, is beginning to come out from under the hell of colonialism and post-colonial looting. Who are they to call anyone racist?
The direct connection of this filthy campaign against Trump to the Russiagate scam was exposed most clearly by notorious race-baiter and Obama operative Rev. Al Sharpton, who ranted on CNN on Saturday night that the “real proof that Trump is a racist” is that he “never has anything bad to say about Vladimir Putin, our sworn enemy.”

Russia threatens no one. No “Russian aggression” exists, not in Ukraine or anywhere else.
The Russian Federation under Vladimir Putin abhors wars, champions world peace and stability – his agenda polar opposite America’s war on humanity.
Bipartisan neocons calling Russia America’s greatest existential threat are bald-faced liars, hyping fear, supporting militarism and warmaking at a time the nation’s only threats are invented ones.
The NYT is militantly Russophobic, its editors pathologically hostile to Vladimir Putin.
Commenting on a Senate Foreign Relations Committee disinformation report on Russia, commissioned and published by undemocratic Dem Ben Cardin, supported by other committee Dems, independent of GOP committee members, Times editors railed about a nonexistent Putin “threat to democracies in Europe and elsewhere.”
They disgracefully called the pure propaganda report entirely lacking credibility “the most comprehensive public accounting of Russia’s war on the West” – this from the self-styled newspaper of record, featuring rubbish, not real news, information and analysis on vital issues, notably geopolitical ones, bashing Russia irresponsibly.
The Times: The Senate Dems report “drives home the point that the 2016 election, which every American intelligence agency has said involved Russian interference to help elect Donald Trump, is part of a pattern in which Mr. Putin has worked to erode Western institutions and undermine faith in democratic practices.”
Fact: No Russian interference occurred in America’s election or any others. Claims otherwise failed to produce corroborating evidence because there is none – just baseless accusations.
Fact: US and other Western institutions alone systematically “undermine faith in democratic practices” they abhor and don’t tolerate – at home or abroad.
The Times: “Few countries in Europe have escaped (Putin’s) malign intrusions. The report should serve as an alert for the United States to work urgently with its allies to protect democracy.”
Fact: Malign intrusions are a longstanding US specialty, not Russia’s under Putin.
Fact: No Western democracies exist to protect, fantasy ones alone.
The Times: “…Trump persists in his bizarre fascination with Mr. Putin and refuses to acknowledge that Russia poses a security threat.”
Fact: No Russian security threat exists, just a US one partnered with NATO, Israel and their rogue allies.
The Times recited a laundry list of phony anti-Russia accusations, including nonexistent use of “military force.”
The Times: “Russia has weakened democracy in Hungary and Bulgaria, both members of the European Union and NATO, and has drawn them closer to Mr. Putin’s orbit. The Kremlin is spreading its reach into Mexico and the Middle East.”

from Conservative Tree House:
As most readers are aware the current wagon-circling Clinton defense strategy (to avoid the toxic legal ebola present through the Christopher Steele dossier contagion) is to claim Team Clinton was duped by a Russian disinformation campaign.
This approach attempts to create distance between: Clinton and Fusion-GPS; the intensely false political intelligence assertions within the Steele Dossier; the DOJ/FBI using the dossier as underlying evidence to gain FISA approval; and the outcome of the FBI spying operation on the Trump campaign in 2016.
Unfortunately for them, as we have pointed out, Hillary Clinton -writ large- cannot say they were duped by an intelligence dossier they created themselves. This is their “dossier problem‘. However, that said, here’s the New York Times trying to assist that “hoodwinked” narrative though the use of the false Michael Cohen story. WATCH:
The ‘hoodwinked’ angle is horsepucky. The use of that defense is the ‘narrative’. The claim the Michael Cohen story was planted by Russians inside the Steele Dossier is fabricated ‘political supposition‘…..
….But are you prepared for the ATOMIC HAMMER OF TRUTH?
Here’s the Occam’s Razor behind the false travel story of candidate Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, and how the flaw ended up in the Steele Dossier.
This is how research shows the simplest explanation is the most likely. All of the points that lead to the simple explanation are generally well known truths.
♦We know the Steele Dossier contains content that was not exclusive to Christopher Steele. ♦We know Fusion GPS held proprietary ownership of the Steele Dossier content. ♦We reasonably know that Nellie Ohr provided much of the research for the dossier content. ♦We know that FBI contractors, perhaps Fusion entities, used unlawful FBI FISA-702 searches to gain information that was passed on to Fusion-GPS and Nellie Ohr etc. ♦We also know the story of Michael Cohen traveling to Prague is inside the Steele Dossier; and we know the story is false – It was the wrong Michael Cohen.
Occams Razor: One of the dubious FBI FISA-702 search subjects was Michael Cohen; and that turned up a “raw data” result for a Michael Cohen traveling to Prague.
That’s how a false Michael Cohen story got into the dossier.
A FISA-702 raw data search gave a return on Michael Cohen, the wrong “Michael Cohen”. That raw data was given to Fusion-GPS who put that inaccurate raw data into the compiled opposition research dossier. That’s how it got in there.
See how that happened?
