The FISA Memo Exposes Fusion GPS Obama 2012 Campaign Links
Idaho Conservatives ^ | February 3, 2018 | Idaho Conservatives

Posted on 02/03/2018 11:03:52 PM PST by Enchante

Fusion GPS was hired by the Obama for America campaign to perform opposition research against Mitt Romney. Fusion GPS’s job was to gather research and connect reporters who would publish hit pieces while the lawyers made the payments and managed the relationships. In early 2012, the Obama campaign launched a political hit job against Mitt Romney campaign donors....

....

It is clear now that David Corn and Michael Isikoff are all connected to the strategy of hitting “enemies” of Obama. It also seems apparent that Mother Jones and Fusion GPS may have multiple connection points. They may also have been directed by Glenn Simpson’s team at the request of the law firm Perkins Coie (Clinton) to get the Steele dossier in the press using their most loyal reporters to fulfill the one-two punch media strategy and manufacture an October surprise.

Perkins Coie not only represented Hillary Clinton’s campaign, they were Obama’s lawyers too. In fact, Bob Bauer, a partner at Perkins Coie was tap to be the White House counsel in 2009 and went back to Perkins Coie in 2011. Mark Elias, a partner at Perkins Coie managed the payments for the Fusion GPS Trump Dossier on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

Lots of important info here! More research needed.....

FusionGPS is a partisan smear factory that has channeled garbage through allied churnalists like Isikoff and Corn. Obama, Hillary, and the DNC are deeply tied in here.

Exposure of sunlight disinfectant desperately needed!!!

That is great research including Kim Strossel / WSJ from Romney campaign. Since there was this history of Fusion GPS + Isikoff in the defamation suit, the F-I/D-J has some more ‘splainin’ to do as to why they’d even believe them in the first place, or didn’t include such exculpatory evidence in the FISA application, that these exact same people were known to have lied before, besides the fact the whole thing is fed back in circles of “support” ala Steele confirms himself.

Most of us figured that there must be some significant ‘history’ to this crap if Obama people were brazen enough to do what they did. Now we’re starting to see it goes back a LONG WAY, perhaps a REALLY LONG WAY.

The FISA memo has the traction of an M1 Abrams tank.

By March there’s gonna be round the clock fireworks in DC.

Let’s throw some other information into this pot and see what cooks.

Michael Isikoff worked with Mark Hosenball, a leftist journalist, (as I recall) at Newsweek and maybe elsewhere years ago.

They focused on intelligence matters, US foreign policy, etc.Well, Hosenball was the partner of admitted Cuban DGI/KGB CIA traitor Phillip Agee. [Agee and a bunch of far-left, National Lawyers Guild affiliated attorneys/legal people formed and wrote for “CAIB “Covert Action Information Bulletin”, which focused on exposing US intelligence operations and agents (which might have been a key factor in the communist assassination of US CIA Station Chief for Greece, Mr. Welch, and attempts on the lives of several other people who CAIB listed).

They were both thrown out of England as security risks.

CORN, long associated with the Marxist “The Nation”, is a far-left journalist who is the “hatchet-man/smear artist” for the Lefts’ media including the old SDS-influenced “Mother Jones” Magazine.

The fact that they all seem to convergence in operations by the Obama network (Obama election front groups, Podesta operations with ties to George Soros, the DNC led by Wasserman and Brazile who let Pakistanis run their computer systems and hack into others in Congress, the Clinton Criminal Operation known as the Clinton Foundation, and other similar groups).

If you want to be believe in conspiracies, the “covert government” or “shadow government” of the Obama network is the place to start.

Remember, he was an Alinskyite. Alinsky was a Marxist who was a brilliant strategist and organizer. Obama was one of his followers, just as were (thankfully deceased last week) Paul Booth (SDS and Progressives for Obama - his wife Heather runs the Marxist training school the Midwest Academy) and the Wash. Post resident Marxist columnist Nicholas Von Hoffmann (who worked for Alinsky).
{DISCLOSURE - I met Alinsky many decades ago and my notes described him in big letters as “SLEAZY”, just like I.F. Stone, the CPUSA/KGB communist propagandist, who I also met around the same time).

Throw in a very suspicious Fusion GPS (why are writers for a supposedly conservative paper, the Wall Street Journal, suddenly showing up as clients of the Democrat Party and its fronts/operations including the DNC and the Clinton Foundation)?

This includes Glenn Simpson and the Wash. Post reporter Devlin Barrett.

Just who is Christopher Steele? I’ve yet to see a good article on his background. Is he a turncoat like Agee or just a wackjob Trump hater? What is his professional credibility? Was he as good as the media says re his supposed counterintelligence work in the Soviet Union/Russia, or was that just his own cover for something else?

How did a professional get “fooled” by three Russian sources (all of whom were either in the Russian intelligence system or reported to them).

The Russians/KGB/SFB etc knew he was in their country, supposedly as a journalist, so when he made contacts with these three “sources” you can be sure that the KGB types knew all about it and helped his “sources” with fake materials and disinformation programs.

The whole Obama shadow government and its tentacles smell as bad as a rotten red octopus carcass lying in the sun for a week.

When looking at the whole cabal, from the leftists/Democrats of DOJ and the FBI, to the media and political organizations and individuals involved in “DossierGate”, remember the two main themes of the TV show “The X-Files” - “THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE” AND ‘TRUST NO ONE’.

If you only remember one thing that I wrote here, it is this - never trust the Democrats. They have been Marxist traitors since the 30’s and include a lot of insane people (Schiff, Waters, Clyburn, Wyden, Blumenthal, Swalwell, etc), as well as crooks (Feinstein and Pelosi), and communists/synmpathizers - Conyers, Danny Davis, Laura De Rosa (re Joelle Fishman Perlo), Gutierrez (re the FALN), Judy Chu (Red China), and others.

You don’t have to be crazy to believe in conspiracies. You have to be “learned” in the ways of your enemies in order to see the real conspiracies from the fantasy ones.

The most successful tactic that our enemies use is to make too many Americans believe that there are no “conspiracies” against America involving both knowing and duped citizens.

The Democrat Party and its followers are proof of that.

Sen. Joe McCarthy may have been a bastard as a person, but he was “RIGHT” when it came to what the communists were doing.

Don’t let the Leftists pull a cry of “McCarthyism” against Nunes, Gowty, Johnson, and other American patriots.

The price we will pay if the Democrat-Marxist alliance succeeds will be our freedom.

2012 : (RUSSIA HIRES LOBBYISTS AND LAWYERS, INCLUDING BAKER-HOSTETLER [see FUSION GPS] , TO TRY TO GET MAGNITSKY ACT REPEALED) In 2012, the Russian government hired an army of lobbyists and lawyers to pursue repeal of the Magnitsky Act. One of the law firms retained was Baker Hostetler, which has ties to Fusion GPS. Fusion itself was co-founded by former journalist Glenn Simpson.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said Fusion worked on behalf of Russian interests but did not register as a foreign agent as required by federal law. “Fusion GPS was apparently simultaneously working on the unsubstantiated dossier alleging collusion between Trump presidential campaign associates and Russia” while at the same time helping the Russian government with the Magnitsky Act.——The Curious Case of Natalia Veselnitskaya, Frontpagemagazine, July 14, 2017 | Matthew Vadum, Posted on 7/14/2017, 4:35:57 AM by SJackson

2012 was an interesting year...

In 2012 Obama named Richard Morningstar to be US Ambassador to Azerbaijan.

****************

...A third early member of Kerry's foreign policy team was Richard Morningstar, a diplomat from the Clinton State Department. From 1995 to 1998 Morningstar had coordinated aid to the former Soviet Union, and in this capacity he had suppressed reports of US aid being diverted to fund the Russian military. Later Morningstar--a former Senior Vice President of the Overseas Private Investment Corporations (OPIC)----had advised Clinton on Caspian energy policy, a subject related to OPIC development of a major oil pipeline then being built from Turkey through Georgia to Azerbaijan, the Baku--Tbilisi--Ceyhan (BTC) Pipeline.10---- See "John Kerry vs. the War on Terror: Candidate Kerry's Subversive Campaign," Original FReeper research | 11/01/2004 | Fedora http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1264816/posts
