    The Federalist ^ | 10/17/2019 | Margot Cleveland
    On Tuesday, attorney Sidney Powell struck again, revealing yet another huge development in the Spygate saga between the lines of her latest motion. That motion, filed in the still-pending criminal case against Trump’s former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, demanded exculpatory evidence from federal prosecutors.But unlike her previously filed motion to compel, here Powell seeks evidence “that has only recently come into its possession.” And the evidence sought? The data and metadata from two Blackberry devices used by Joseph Mifsud.While Powell’s latest motion barely equaled two pages, the implications are multi-pronged and monumental.That the U.S. government has only recently obtained...

  • Obama engaged Ukraine to give the Russian collusion narrative an early boost (and 2016 Hillary)

    As Donald Trump began his meteoric rise to the presidency, the Obama White House summoned Ukrainian authorities to Washington to coordinate ongoing anti-corruption efforts inside Russia’s most critical neighbor. The January 2016 gathering, confirmed by multiple participants and contemporaneous memos, brought some of Ukraine’s top corruption prosecutors and investigators face to face with members of former President Obama’s National Security Council (NSC), FBI, State Department and Department of Justice (DOJ). The agenda suggested the purpose was training and coordination. But Ukrainian participants said it didn’t take long — during the meetings and afterward — to realize the Americans’ objectives included...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday took aim at teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, telling an energy forum he did not share the excitement about her United Nations speech last month. The 16-year-old Swede electrified the U.N. summit in New York when she denounced world leaders for failing to tackle climate change, unleashing the outrage felt by millions of her peers by demanding: “How dare you?” Putin, chairing a session at an energy forum in Moscow, said: “I may disappoint you but I don’t share the common excitement about the speech by Greta Thunberg. “No one has explained to Greta...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin poked fun at the ongoing political crisis in the US by joking about election meddling Wednesday. When asked about concerns the Russia might interfere in the 2020 US elections, he replied: "I'll tell you a secret: Yes, we'll definitely do it," Putin said. "Just don't tell anyone," he added, in a stage whisper. Putin was appearing on a panel at Russian Energy Week, along with OPEC Secretary General Mohammed Barkindo and others. "You know, we have enough of our own problems," Putin continued. "We are engaged in resolving internal problems and are primarily focused on this."...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Dec. 30, 2016 | Edward Jay Epstein
    Of all the lies that Edward Snowden has told since his massive theft of secrets from the National Security Agency and his journey to Russia via Hong Kong in 2013, none is more provocative than the claim that he never intended to engage in espionage, and was only a “whistleblower” seeking to expose the overreach of NSA’s information gathering. With the clock ticking on Mr. Snowden’s chance of a pardon, now is a good time to review what we have learned about his real mission.

    The results of the Knesset election are very important to Moscow, and it hopes politicians will be elected who will maintain close ties with Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin said alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Sochi on Thursday. Netanyahu traveled to the Black Sea resort to meet the Russian leader – just five days before the election – in a move widely seen as an effort to woo elder Russian-speaking immigrants who form an important base of support for Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beytenu party.

    Actor Alec Baldwin claimed that financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was killed by the Russian state, which Baldwin said is now “in charge of everything” as a result of the Trump presidency. Epstein, who was facing charges of child sex trafficking, was found dead in his cell on Saturday at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York. The timing of his death, as well as the fact that he had been taken off suicide watch, has fanned multiple conspiracies about whether he was murdered in order to prevent him from ever revealing damaging information on powerful people and...

    Friday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough reacted to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blocking legislation to address Russian election interference. Scarborough coined a new nickname for McConnell, calling him “Moscow Mitch” because the senator from Kentucky is “aiding and abetting” Russia President Vladimir Putin in his attempt to “subvert U.S. democracy.”

    Ex-MSNBC host Krystal Ball rips former network over Russian hoax: ‘Rachel Maddow, you’ve got some explaining to do’ Ex-MSNBC host Krystal Ball blasted her former network as “not journalism” and singled out "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Thursday for floating wild “Russian conspiracy theories” that blew up during former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's testimony. Mueller's testimony before two House committees Wednesday was largely considered a “disaster” for Democrats and opponents of President Trump despite MSNBC pushing the collusion narrative. Ball -- who now hosts The Hill newspaper's “Rising” -- said on her show she did not mean anything personal when...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin recently sat down for an interview with far left Hollywood producer Oliver Stone. The transcript for the interview was posted on the Kremlin website. Most of the liberal mainstream media is covering the part of the interview where Oliver Stone asked Putin to be the godfather of his daughter. The Democrat Pravda media is ignoring the rest. Robert Wenzel posted part of the transcript on his website. You can make up your own mind on this interview. But it really is amazing that he is more believable in this video than the liberal mainstream media has...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that the "excessive demonization" of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin "is one means of attacking the Soviet Union and Russia." Putin made the comments in the last of four installments of a series of interviews that he gave to U.S. filmmaker Oliver Stone, which was aired on June 15, 2017. In the past, Putin has praised Stalin as an "effective manager," and Stalin's reputation in Russia has been growing steadily since Putin came to power in 2000. A poll in April by the independent Levada research center found that 25 percent of Russians consider Stalin's...

    Director says liberals are 'destroying the trust that exists between people and government ... it's a very dangerous position' Director Oliver Stone may not be a fan of President Donald Trump — he voted for third-party candidate Jill Stein in 2016 — but he’s not too happy with Democrats, either. Stone’s next film had him interviewing Russian President Vladimir Putin, and the “Platoon” director says the Russian conspiracy theories coming from the Left are not based in reality — and are dangerous. “That’s an internal war of politics in the U.S. in which the Democratic Party has taken a suicide...

The trailer shows his most recent talk with Putin this past February, where he gets right down to brass tacks and asks the question every Hillary Clinton supporter...

    US film director Oliver Stone on Thursday accused President Barack Obama's administration of implementing a surveillance system worse than that of the feared Stasi secret police in East Germany. Speaking at the San Sebastian film festival in northern Spain, where he presented his film "Snowden," Stone said many in the US had grown disillusioned with a president they once saw as "a man of great integrity." "On the contrary, Obama has doubled down on the (George W.) Bush administration policies," said Stone, whose latest movie is a biographical political thriller about Edward Snowden, the former intelligence contractor who revealed a...

    American Thinker ^ | 3-31-14 | Bruce Walker
    In a recent interview, Oliver Stone, defender of Marxist thugs, complained that “Jewish domination of the media” prevents Americans from putting the Holocaust in context. Stone also opined that Hitler was the product of industrialists and that the Nazi invasion of Russia caused more deaths than the Holocaust. In one fell swoop, Stone revealed the Orwellian thought control that is the black heart of leftism. The Holocaust was a crime of almost unimaginable human suffering, and if Stone’s remarks were intended to remind us that Polish Catholics and Gypsies, particularly, suffered genocide at Nazi hands as well, then perhaps Stone...

    Famous foe of imperialism Oliver Stone just premiered his documentary “Mi Amigo Hugo” (“My Friend Hugo”) in the Cuban colony of Venezuela. As the title suggests, the film honors Hugo Chavez, Cuba’s late Venezuelan viceroy. The film was released amidst lavish celebrations on the first anniversary of Chavez’ death and broadcast on the Cuba-run TV channel of the Cuban viceroyalty of Venezuela. For the occasion, Raul Castro himself graced his South American dominion with a visit. “Venezuela today is a country that is practically occupied by the henchmen of two international criminals, Cuba's Castro brothers,” recently declared Luis Miquilena who...

    Mediaite ^ | February 15, 2014 | Andrew Kirell
    Journalist Jeremy Scahill and filmmaker Oliver Stone believe that, on issues of civil liberties and warfare, President Obama has entirely abandoned his 2008 rhetoric. And they see MSNBC and stars like Bill Maher as the biggest cheerleaders for such abrogations. The two well-known men of the left appeared Saturday at the 2014 Students For Liberty Conference (ISFLC), on a panel entitled “Imperial Overreach and the National Security State,” sponsored by the libertarian Future of Freedom Foundation. They were joined by Stone’s co-author Peter Kuznick, with Newseum vice chairman Shelby Coffey moderating. While lamenting the “expanding warfare state” in America, both...

    Video at the site. Film director Oliver Stone—who has made no secret of his liberal political views—called President Barack Obama a “snake” for his role in National Security Agency spying programs that have become, he said, more about silencing protestors than finding terrorists. “Obama is a snake,” Stone told an audience in Tokyo on Monday. “He’s a snake. And we have to turn on him.” “The Boston Marathon, they were so busy tracking down potential protestors…that they missed the bombers,” Stone told the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan. “It’s never about terrorists, it always becomes about the way J.
