    NSA Director Mike Rogers told his staff there is 'damning' evidence Donald Trump and his team colluded with the Russian government, a former agent claims. The shocking information was allegedly relayed to all staff in an agency-wide meeting this week, ex-NSA agent John Schindler claimed Friday. Schindler wrote in the New York Observer the security chief started the meeting by telling staff they were not going to like what he disclosed to them, but he had to: 'tell what (he) had seen'. 'Rogers then added that such SIGINT exists, and it is damning,' the ex-agent wrote. 'He stated, "There is...

    On May 25, Rick Moran detailed the plight of California-located Duarte Nursery, being sued by the Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) for plowing a small portion of a recently purchased 450-acre farm for the purpose of planting wheat. Mr. Duarte purchased the land in recognition that significant portions were to remain fallow because they were wetlands protected by the Clean Water Act (CWA). But, after planting wheat for harvest in 2013 on a portion determined by a paid consultant not to be such protected wetlands, Mr. Duarte was sued by the Corps for "not obtaining a permit to discharge dredged...

    The police chief who oversaw Seth Rich’s unsolved murder case has socialized and been honored alongside key Hillary Clinton advisers and even Rich’s own boss at the Democratic National Committee. Rich is widely reported to be the source of Wikileaks’ damning 2016 email release that showed the DNC colluding to hand the nomination to Clinton at the expense of Bernie Sanders. He was gunned down in D.C. 12 days before Wikileaks’ release. Former Metropolitan Police Department chief Cathy Lanier resigned from her post the month after Rich’s murder to accept a position running security for the National Football League. She...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | May 26, 2017 | Jim Hoft
    Here is updated analysis of the most recent so called ‘leaks’ being reported and repeated by the liberal mainstream media (MSM) involving President Trump. The probability that a portion of these ‘leaks’ are completely inaccurate remains very high. The leaks are all being reported by biased liberal media outlets that were adamantly opposed to the election of President Trump. These ‘leaks’ in all cases still are not supported with any names of so-called sources and in all cases the ‘leaks’ are meant to destroy the current President. Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly made statements that were revealed in the...

    Asked about reports that Donald Trump's son-in-law had tried to set up a secret channel of communication with Russia before the president took office, U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said that so-called "back-channeling" was normal. McMaster declined to speak specifically about the case of Jared Kushner, who serves as a senior adviser to Trump, but when asked if it would concern him if someone in the administration tried to set up a back channel with the Russian embassy or the Kremlin, he replied "no." "We have back-channel communications with any number of individual (countries). So generally speaking, about back-channel...

    Seth Rich Assassinated for Truth Make no mistake about it, Seth Rich is a name you should remember. He is an world class hero who gave his life for truth. He was Director of Voter Expansion Data for the DNC (Democratic National Committee). He saw things that the Hillary campaign was doing that sickened him and he wanted to change things from the inside. It was a dangerous, life threatening mission, he counted the cost, and he went forward. Julian Assange in recent interviews has basically intimated that Seth Rich was the leaker, and offered a reward for information...

    Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John Kelly has promised the big business lobby tens of thousands of cheaper, blue-collar foreign workers despite President Donald Trump’s ‘Hire American’ initiative. During a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kelly told Senators that he was lobbied by the financial and open borders lobby to expand the H-2B visa, and also by pro-American worker groups who see the visa as a detriment to Americans’ wages and job opportunities. “They’re caving to the business interest, rather than the people that elected them,” pro-American lawyer John Miano told Breitbart Texas. “Everyone but the very top...

The new legislation prohibits: The relocation, removal, alteration, renaming, or other disturbance of any architecturally significant building, memorial building, memorial street, or monument located on public property which has been in place for 40 or more years.

    Nile Gardiner said that NATO leaders acted in an "absolutely appalling" way toward President Trump. Gardiner, an aide to late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, said he was disgusted at leaders who were caught smirking and chuckling during Trump's speech. He criticized Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel for appearing to laugh when Trump spoke about the need for nations to pay what they owed to NATO. Gardiner called the actions of Bettel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel "absolutely appalling." Macron and Bettel could be seen smirking at each other as Michel and Spanish Prime Minister...

Calabrese interviewed Jerry Zeifman, the man who served as chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate hearings, has tried to tell the story of his former staffer’s behavior during those proceedings for years.

    The Senate Intelligence Committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race, has asked President Trump’s political organization to gather and produce all Russia-related documents, emails and phone records going back to his campaign’s launch in June 2015, according to two people briefed on the request. The letter from the Senate arrived at Trump’s campaign committee last week and was addressed to the group’s treasurer. Since then, some former staffers have been notified and asked to cooperate, the people said. They were not authorized to speak publicly.

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday called for President Trump to fire his son-in-law Jared Kushner from his position as a White House senior adviser in light of reports that he attempted to establish a private communications channel between the president's transition team and Moscow. "Trump has no choice but to immediately fire Kushner, whose failure to report this episode on his security clearance is reason enough for a criminal investigation," DNC deputy communications director Adrienne Watson said in a statement. "The next question is whether the President authorized this, because no one stands between Trump and Kushner on...

    WASHINGTON — Despite repeated efforts by President Trump to curtail refugee resettlements, the State Department this week quietly lifted the department’s restriction on the number of refugees allowed to enter the United States. The result could be a near doubling of refugees entering the country, from about 830 people a week in the first three weeks of this month to well over 1,500 people per week by next month, according to refugee advocates. Tens of thousands of refugees are waiting to come to the United States. The State Department’s decision was conveyed in an email on Thursday to the private...

    Note that the most ‘leaks’ over the past few weeks have come from the Washington Post (5), the ‘Failing’ New York Times (4) and CNN (3). The three MSM outlets that best fit the label of ‘Very Fake News’. Evidence in Hillary Clinton’s creepy campaign manager John Podesta’s emails released before the election by WikiLeaks show that the Clinton campaign was in cahoots with the mainstream media. At least 65 MSM reporters were meeting with and/or coordinating offline with top Hillary advisors. The WikiLeaks emails also show that as early as December 2015 Podesta discussed Trump’s “bromance with Putin” and...
