  • Former Hillary Clinton Chief Strategist Mocks Effectiveness of Russian Facebook Ads

    Newsbusters ^ | October 17, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    The mainstream media has recently gotten all excited over the discovery that the Russians purchased $100,000 worth of Facebook ads during the 2016 election season. Of course, almost any rational observer would realize that $100,000 is mere chump change in the grand scheme of things during a campaign in which many millions were spent on ads and commercials.  One person who made a very detailed analysis as to the absurdity of the Russians influencing the U.S. election via those Facebook ads is quite surprising considering his background. It is former 2008 Hillary Clinton campaign chief stragegist Mark Penn who in...

    Column: Trump drives the mainstream media to abandon the pretense of objectivity! For years, reporters were content to obscure their ideological dogmas and partisan goals behind the pretense of objectivity and detachment. Though the Washington Post, New York Times, and CNN practiced combat journalism against conservatives and Republicans, they did so while aspiring to professional standards of facticity and fairness, and applying, every now and then, scrutiny to liberals and Democrats worthy of investigation. Donald Trump changed that, of course. He is so unusual a figure, and his behavior so outlandish, that his rise precipitated a crisis in a profession...
  • Trump wants Senate to probe ‘fake news networks’

    New York Post ^ | 10/05/2017 | Yaron Steinbuch
    President Trump questioned early Thursday why the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is probing Russian interference in the presidential election, wasn’t also targeting “Fake News Networks.” “Why Isn’t the Senate Intel Committee looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country to see why so much of our news is just made up-FAKE!” Trump tweeted. His comments came a day after the committee’s chairman, Richard Burr, said the panel “has more work to do” to determine whether there was collusion between Russian officials and Team Trump during the 2016 presidential election. “The committee continues to look into all evidence to see...

    At least one of the Facebook advertisements bought by the Russians during last year’s presidential campaign was targeted at voters in Baltimore and made reference to the Black Lives Matter movement, a source familiar with the ad said Wednesday. The ad — also aimed at users in Ferguson, Mo. — followed the 2015 rioting sparked by the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray. The ad appeared on the social media network sometime in late 2015 or early 2016.

    WASHINGTON — Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, has asked the White House for documents about some of President Trump’s most scrutinized actions since taking office, including the firing of his national security adviser and F.B.I. director, according to White House officials. Mr. Mueller is also interested in an Oval Office meeting Mr. Trump had with Russian officials in which he said the dismissal of the F.B.I. director had relieved “great pressure” on him. The document requests provide the most details to date about the breadth of Mr. Mueller’s investigation, and show that several aspects of his inquiry are...

    Vladimir Zhirinovsky, deputy speaker of the Russian State Duma and leader of the ultra-nationalist Liberal Democratic Party has suggested that the Soviet Union and its surrogate states would have been justified to kill Pope John Paul II who, he claims, was planted in the Vatican by the CIA to wrest Poland from its pro-Soviet rulers. In an interview with a Russian radio statio, on the day the Pope's would-be assassin, Ali Agca, was released from an Istanbul jail, Zhirinovsky was asked whether the KGB, had commissioned the attack. "There is no direct evidence necessarily of a Russian connection here, but...

    MEHMET Ali Agca, the Turk who attempted to kill pope John Paul II in 1981, was freed yesterday after almost 25 years behind bars, but may soon return to jail amid legal confusion over his early release. Less than six hours after Agca walked out of the high-security Kartal prison on Istanbul's Asian shore, Justice Minister Cemil Cicek said he would order a review of the case as a debate raged among jurists over whether his release was legally sound. Mr Cicek hinted that the 48-year-old Agca, who served 19 years in Italy for shooting and seriously wounding the pope...

    Ex-KGB agents hired to protect Kim Jong Un from assassins By YOSHIHIRO MAKINO/ Correspondent August 25, 2017 at 15:00 JST Print SEOUL--North Korea has hired former KGB agents as “military advisers” to bolster protection of leader Kim Jong Un against assassination attempts by the United States and South Korea, a source said. About 10 or so former KGB agents who once worked in a division tasked with taking down terrorists were invited to Pyongyang in February, according to the source knowledgeable about affairs in the North Korean capital. They were asked to train Kim’s bodyguards, including how to detect possible...

    The revelations of the so-called Panama Papers that are roiling the world’s political and financial elites this week include important facts about Team Clinton. This unprecedented trove of documents purloined from a shady Panama law firm that arranged tax havens, and perhaps money laundering, for the globe’s super-rich includes juicy insights into how Russia’s elite hides its ill-gotten wealth. Almost lost among the many revelations is the fact that Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, D.C. Though hardly a household name, this firm is well known inside the Beltway, not least because its CEO...
  • Surprise! The Democrat-Linked Firm Behind The Fake Trump Dossier Was Funded By The Russian Govt

    Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm with ties to the Democrat Party, reportedly received funding from senior Russian government officials around the time it was putting together its infamous bogus dossier alleging – among many things – that President Donald Trump once hired prostitutes to pee on a Russian hotel bed that had been previously occupied by Barack and Michelle Obama. This latest twist in the tale to uncover Fusion GPS’s motivations for creating the dossier was detailed by American Majority Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ned Ryun speaking with Breitbart News Daily. Ryun’s sourcing for the information he divulged...

    Accounts of the phony Trump dossier debacle typically begin on January 10, 2017, when CNN and BuzzFeed publicized allegations about an alleged Russian honey trap operation against Donald Trump that dossier compiler Christopher Steele has admitted were unverified. But the story of the phony dossier actually broke over two months earlier when Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn reported Steele’s allegations on October 31, 2016 under the headline, “A Veteran Spy Has Given the FBI Information Alleging a Russian Operation to Cultivate Donald Trump: Has the bureau investigated this material?”. Corn had previously helped the Democrats sink Mitt Romney’s...

    While the headlines over the past week have been swamped with coverage over the candidates bidding for the 2016 presidential election and a “trans-racial” NAACP leader lying about her race, critically important issues that are detrimental to our national security have gone virtually unnoticed. For instance, on Friday we learned that as many as 14 million current and former civilian U.S. government employees had their information compromised in an unprecedented attack by Chinese hackers. In a late Friday news dump, the Associated Press announced that the hackers stole, “Social Security numbers, military records and veterans’ status information, addresses, birth dates,...

    We all know that the Russian Collusion investigation is nothing but a game to try and distract the population from actually caring about the day to day running of the country, but the charade has gone too far and some serious questions need to be asked; most especially of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. WikiLeaks has put out a document that details then FBI Director Mueller’s itinerary on his visit to Russia to deliver 10 grams of Enriched Uranium. One more time for those who missed it…Mueller hand delivered Highly Enriched Uranium to the Russian government!

    While the mainstream news media hunts for evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the public record shows that Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump and attack his administration.The disinformation came in the form of a Russian-fed dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It contains a series of unverified criminal charges against Mr. Trump’s campaign aides, such as coordinating Moscow’s hacking of Democratic Party computers.Some Democrats have widely circulated the discredited information. Mr. Steele was paid by the Democrat-funded opposition research firm Fusion GPS with money from a Hillary Clinton backer. Fusion...
