Gateway Pundit Exclusive: Inside the AGT Juggarnaut – FBI/DOJ Coverup of Clinton Foundation and Russian/China Related Crimes – PART II

by Joe Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

A 2016 DOJ criminal investigation was suppressed and buried by the DOJ/FBI that involved a major NY Democratic power broker, Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

The investigation revolved around the illegal sale of US technology that was ITAR/EAR controlled and US State Department regulated.  This included advanced intelligence systems, surveillance, thermal cameras, sensors, radar, C4I and cyber warfare systems that were sold to Russia and China in the years before the 2016 election.


by Ginni Thomas, The Daily Sheeple:

When the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence votes to release the classified Russia memo, according to one journalist, it will be because the committee found such disconcerting practices by intelligence officials that the public has a right to know.

Mollie Ziegler Hemingway — a senior editor at The Federalist and Fox News contributor who spoke with The Daily Caller New Foundation — discussed how the media narrative is collapsing with new facts showing the misbehavior of certain FBI officials. Besides not showing any collusion, we can now look back to see “inappropriate” briefings by intelligence officials and the Congress using this discredited information.

Hemingway calls the use of the dossier to obtain surveillance on Trump administration officials a “scandal of epic proportions.” In addition, America is also learning of the post-election whisper campaign to delegitimize President Donald Trump.

As for the state of American journalism, Hemingway discussed the public’s reasonable impression of a herd who seemed to think former President Barack Obama could do no wrong, and they were protectively fawning. Trump, on the other hand, seems unable to do anything right, with reflexive hostility always aimed in his direction. Public trust in journalism is eroding with this obvious bias on display, Hemingway said.

Groups like Fusion GPS are coming into newsrooms with packaged campaigns to help journalists tell a story that does their work for them. It is tempting to use such packages in an environment of budget-cutting and downsizing, Hemingway said.

To Hemingway, Trump is a surprisingly conservative politician. As for the reluctance of other Republicans to support him, she believes they should figure out that “people want leaders to courageously stand up to social justice warriors and media bullies.”

If Democrats were willing to shut down the government over illegal aliens, Hemingway thinks that Republicans should at least consider the federal funds going to Planned Parenthood, especially after the videos that came out a couple years ago demonstrating a reprehensible fetal body part harvesting trade.

“The idea that these children wouldn’t be valuable enough in our society to live, but they are valuable in death, chopped up, is horrific to contemplate,” Hemingway said. Explaining that there is even a drop down menu by age, including eyelids of babies, she thinks this “shocking” activity should capture Republicans’ attention.

At the end of this exclusive video, Hemingway also discussed the #MeToo movement, giving extreme guidance to sexual mores that have been fostered in a morally relativistic time.

New Research Finds Human Activity Has Virtually ZERO Impact on Global Temperatures

from Humans Are Free:

The climate change hoax has collapsed. A devastating series of research papers has just been published, revealing that human activity can account for no more than a .01°C rise in global temperatures, meaning that all the human activity targeted by radical climate change alarmists — combustion engines, airplane flights, diesel tractors — has virtually no measurable impact on the temperature of the planet.

Finnish scientists spearheaded the research, releasing a paper entitled, “No Experimental Evidence for the Significant Anthropogenic Climate Change.”

Social destruction by the abuse of money


by Alasdair Macleod, GoldMoney:

In Britain, the top 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of earners pay over a quarter of all income tax collected, and while super-rich British residents perhaps don’t have the tax breaks the Macklowes enjoy, the bulk of the burden falls on lawyers, bankers, company executives and owners of successful private enterprises. And it should, say the collectivists….

One of the juicier stories doing the rounds in New York society is the Macklowe divorce. Harry, the husband, kept a French mistress for two years before seeking a divorce from his wife of 58 years. So far, this is a run-of-the-mill marital split. But what made it the subject of gossip is the extraordinary lifestyle of the Macklowes, the mud being slung, and the expectations of the wronged 79-year old wife, seeking a billion or so to see out her remaining days.

They say hell hath no fury, and all that. Here is one of New York’s richest couples, washing their laundry in public, and it emerges that Harry has not paid tax since 1983. Harry’s lawyer bluntly stated in court that “people in real estate don’t pay taxes”. It echoes Leona Hemsley’s infamous quote that emerged at her trial thirty years ago, when the Queen of Mean said “We don’t pay taxes, only little people pay taxes.”

This still surprises many of us little people, but we must believe a top New York lawyer when he makes a statement in a court of law. The source of immense personal wealth in cities like New York is often from property development, and if this is a tax-free activity, it makes a mockery of the state redistributing money from the haves to the have-nots.

And sociologists wonder why there is so much discontent aimed at the establishment! This discontent finds expression in doubled-down socialism – morality-driven socialism rather than the Marxian version perhaps. It seems obvious to the masses that government is failing to collect taxes through not trying hard enough. But all that the Macklowe divorce evidence proves is one of life’s truisms: the rich are very good at finding legal ways not to pay tax.

Wealth-destruction and the state

Government welfare promises are never funded by the very rich. Anyway, there are too few of them to make any difference to the enormous scale of statist demands for tax revenue. But there is nonetheless an enormous burden imposed upon the successful wealth creators. In Britain, the top 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of earners pay over a quarter of all income tax collected, and while super-rich British residents perhaps don’t have the tax breaks the Macklowes enjoy, the bulk of the burden falls on lawyers, bankers, company executives and owners of successful private enterprises. And it should, say the collectivists.

But when we look at the next layer down, those that earn more than the average wage, we see the state’s taxes have caused the worst economic distortions. We are referring to taxes on the wages of skilled blue-collar workers, and upwards. These are ordinary people with aspirations to do better for themselves and their families. These are the people who pay most of the other 75{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the income tax and sales taxes collected by the state. These are the people, who, if allowed to keep their earnings, would be incentivised to become more productive for the benefit of everyone. These are the people who would reduce the welfare burden on the state, given the choice, by being able to save for private healthcare and to pay for the education of their children.

Instead, they are forced to subsidise a far costlier state system. I was recently told by a credible source that the only form of surgery in the US that has fallen in price in recent years is the one not covered by highly regulated Medicare and Medicaid: plastic surgery. Some time ago I did a rough calculation of the cost of educating a child of primary school age in Britain, and found that the “free” state system costs about twice as much as educating a child privately. Keeping a male young offender locked up in Britain costs £85,975 per annum all-in, while it costs less than £40,000 to educate a child of the same age at Eton. And it’s not as if British borstals are bristling with expensive upper-class facilities, either.

I can think of very few parents who prefer to put their children through the state system rather than private education. Even left-wing Labour politicians in the UK send their children to private schools. Trade unions offer private healthcare to their own staff in preference to facing the queues at the National Health Service, while publicly damning private healthcare for taking resources away from the state system.

Money diverted in taxes from productive use to bolster state spending is an enormous unseen drag on the economy. It destroys personal wealth, and produces inferior or unwanted services in return. And while we can debate the benefits to the lowest earners in society and the long-term unemployed, we should not ignore the wealth that might otherwise have been accumulated, upon which ultimately the standard of living of even the poorest in society depends.

Lifestyles are now based on debt

State intervention has become so extensive and costly, that those with ambitions to better themselves and improve the conditions for their families have long been unable to do so out of heavily-taxed earnings. Instead, they resort to borrowing. A typical young couple buying a newly-built home on a housing estate, parking two cars in the driveway, well-dressed, and with children who no longer walk to school but are driven by a parent, represent the aspirations of your country’s future.

But how much of this visible wealth does the model couple own? The mortgage deeds are with the mortgage lender, representing most of the home’s value. The cars are not theirs until the end of the loan agreement, and then they must relinquish them, buy them, or trade them in for another car on finance. And the credit cards are expensive borrowing which for many people are a necessary financial bridge to the next payday. It is a sad fact that most salaried people have no financial buffer at all, and if their next pay-check fails to arrive, they risk losing their credit rating and possibly their home as well.

The Great Reckoning

by Andrew J. Bacevich, Consortium News:

[Editorial note: This remnant of a manuscript, discovered in a vault near the coastal town of Walpole, Massachusetts, appears to have been part of a larger project, probably envisioned as an interpretive history of the United States since the year 2000. Only a single chapter, probably written near the midpoint of the 21st century, has survived. Whether the remainder of the manuscript has been lost or the author abandoned it before its completion is unknown.]

Euro holiday destinations shunned by travelers concerned about safety

Tourism to the United States is up since Donald Trump became president, while visitor numbers to holiday destinations throughout Europe are plummeting as a result of widespread terror attacks and the migrant invasion.

“Latest numbers from the U.S. Travel Association’s Travel Trends Index showed 6.6 percent growth in international travel to the U.S. in April and 5 percent growth in May compared with the same months last year,” reports the Wall Street Journal.


by Mikael Thalen, InfoWars:
An online marketplace that sold illegal goods on the Dark Web has been shut down following a multinational law enforcement effort.

AlphaBay, a site which facilitated the sale of items such as drugs, stolen credit card numbers and weapons, unexpectedly went offline last week as raids were carried out in the US, Canada and Thailand.

GOP be warned: Impeachment will set off Democrat push to reverse Trump’s SCOTUS appointments, tax cuts and regulatory reforms

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

Analysis: If the Democrats manage to impeach Trump in the House and achieve a conviction in the Senate, their drive to purge all conservatives from government (and from social media, the news media, education and other institutions) won’t stop with just one man. Removing Trump will be just the beginning of a coordinated effort to erase the entire Trump presidency and reverse all his actions, including the confirmation of two U.S. Supreme Court justices.

Lawyers for Michael Flynn Accuse FBI’s Lisa Page of Altering Text Records

by Andrew West, Freedom OutPost:

The case against former White House adviser and military hero General Michael Flynn has been a strange, winding road that looks now to be leading us back into the heart of the Deep State.

Flynn stands accused of lying to the FBI, a charge that itself has been battled vigorously in court, with the General’s lawyers making the case that the circumstances of his conversations with these agents were misrepresented.  In other words, Flynn had been the victim of some form of disingenuous entrapment by the Deep State actors looking to find a foothold against President Donald Trump.
