Pelosi Jr.’s Ukraine Problem

It hasn’t gotten much attention, but aside from Hunter Biden, another son of a powerful American politician has his mitts in the Ukraine pot.
Dean Garrison at DCclothesline writes:

Hunter Biden move over.

Now Nancy Pelosi’s son may be looking to take center stage with the Ukraine controversy.

Paul Pelosi, Jr. spent time in Ukraine in 2017.
What in the hell?

BOTH Biden’s and Pelosi’s sons have strong ties to Ukraine?

Who goes to Ukraine?

I’m sure most people reading this have sent their sons to Ukraine at some point.

I’m probably just being paranoid.

From National File:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son Paul Pelosi Jr. visited Ukraine in 2017 to meet with government officials in connection to a business initiative. Now, unearthed records reveal that Paul Pelosi Jr. was an executive of a gas industry company that did business in Ukraine – and his mother Nancy Pelosi was featured in one of the company’s promotional videos.

Paul Pelosi Jr. traveled to Kiev, Ukraine in July 2017 in his capacity as executive director of the Corporate Governance Initiative, a position that he accepted months earlier in February 2017. Pelosi Jr. said that he was in Ukraine to discuss a youth soccer partnership with the government.
The American Mirror, which flagged Pelosi Jr.’s appearance in 2017, preserved a clip of Pelosi Jr. on the Ukrainian station following the video’s removal from YouTube.

On March 5, 2013, NRGLab New Technology posted two videos on Youtube. One video opened with a clip of Nancy Pelosi discussing energy-efficient technology, followed by a direct-to-camera statement from her son Paul Pelosi Jr., filmed in Washington, D.C. in 2010.

L.J. Keith at Communities DigitalNews adds, “Pelosi Jr. earlier had served as an executive just under Mike Mozilla with Countrywide during the height of the mortgage crisis of 2008. Countrywide being one of the worse abusers in the mortgage debacle that almost destroyed America’s, and the world’s, economy.

“Paul Pelosi Jr. made a fortune, walking away unscathed. This before starting a solar energy company to take advantage of huge Federal Government loan guarantees. Another money windfall for Pelosi, who walked away with a fortune when that company went bankrupt. Leaving the Federal Government and the taxpayers to make up for the losses.”

When will journalists start covering the corruption? Probably never. That’s why more people turn to the internet and YouTube to find out the truth.

The Capture

Sunday evening and Monday morning ABC News aired this video of what they said was the slaughter of the Kurds in Syria:

The Washington Examiner smelled something besides smoke in this. They questioned its veracity. Turns out they were correct. ABC News had to admit that it was video of a nighttime machine gun demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky, not an attack in Syria.

Now somebody at ABC knew that this was a fake.
They ran it anyhow.

We’ve gotten used to fake news reports in the media. Fake information, fake commentary, fake polls. Now they are taking the next step of faking video. It was logical that they would jump from fake words to fake video.

Logical and scary. Is there any doubt that the same media/deep state that twists words, suggests meanings or edits video to craft a message will take the next step and actually manipulate the video?

There is a six part BBC show that aired recently called The Capture. It’s perhaps one of the best shows about this topic that has been on TV or the movies.

The title refers to the capture of an act seen on surveillance camera. British cities are thick with cameras. The story opens with a soldier on trial for supposedly killing an Afghan without giving him a chance to surrender. It’s recorded on tape and looks undeniable. However, his lawyers show how the tape could be out of sync and not been an accurate portrayal of what happened. The soldier is acquitted.
After celebrating the victory at a pub, he follows his attractive barrister to offer to drive her home. They kiss, she declines and gets on a bus and he walks away.

But the video doesn’t show that. It shows him assaulting her. The police search for her and eventually find her body.

The detective involved follows the story to find that the tape has, indeed, been manipulated. How it plays out involves the CIA, British intelligence and radical groups. Intelligence analysts call such manipulation “a correction.” That gives you an idea of the evil and betrayal these groups engage in.

That so many entities would embrace faking a video is shocking, but not surprising. If ABC News can do this so flagrantly, how many other times have we watched fake videos and believed them?

The positioning of cameras around cities may seem to be a good thing against crime, but is it? Is it the police in China who benefit or the Deep State governmental officials. Just ask Hong Kong.

We are even thinking about surveillance cameras in Central Gardens. While they may seem innocent on the surface, could they ultimately be used against us?

Something to contemplate.

Citizens may feel they are innocent, but the potential for governmental abuse is huge.

If you get a chance, try and find “The Capture.” You won’t feel you’ve wasted your viewing time.

Is This the Whistleblower?

As Washington swirls with the question of who is the whistleblower prompting this insane impeachment inquiry, bloggers and citizen analysts have narrowed down the names.

One which pops up the most is Eric Ciaramella. Who is he? J.R. Dunn at American Thinker wrote, “The third name to attract attention is Eric Ciaramella, an intelligence officer specializing in Russia and Ukraine. He was a staffer on the National Security Council, where he was responsible for policy regarding Ukraine. He was H.R. McMaster’s personal aide and during the Obama administration had worked with Susan Rice. Ciaramella had gained a reputation as an inveterate leaker, which, he claimed, had resulted in ‘death threats’ from ‘right-wingers.’ This was the reason he gave for leaving the NSC in 2017.”

On Twitter, Seamus Bruner, author of “Compromised: How Money and Politics Drive FBI Corruption,” concurs. He says “Ciaramella (is a ) registered Democrat. He was Obama NSC holdover and when accused of sabotaging Trump, he left NSC and returned to ‘the Agency’… ie fits whistleblower bill of Ukrainian insider and CIA operative (with axe to grind). If it turns out Eric Ciaramella is Schiff’s informant people ought to know that billionaire Clinton donor Victor Pinchuk sent Ukrainian MP Bielkova to meet with him the same day she met with David Kramer and kicked Steele Dossier operation into high gear, i.e. ‘Whistleblower’= Dossier 2.0.”

Then he goes on to show in a series of documents, the guy’s ties to the whole stinking Ukrainian corruption in a series of tweets. Like the Russia hoax, you need a flow chart to keep track of them all.

“Note: Kramer likely discussed the now debunked ‘black ledger’ with MP Bielkova Clinton’s biggest Ukrainian donor: Billionaire Victor Pinchuk paid Clinton pollster Doug Schoen to set up meetings Team Obama. Together they pushed false narratives to influence 2016 election”

“As others have noted, Ciaramella linked to Nuland (who promoted Steele reports throughout State Dept. to influence 2016 election). This email directly related to Biden threatening to withhold Billion dollar loan guarantee (If not mistaken). Same timeframe as Pinchuk sponsored mtg”

“Full annotated Pinchuk lobbying disclosure that details Ciaramella, Kramer Ukraine meetings in April with relevant Kramer dossier datapoints (and other spygate docs) in Compromised: James Comey, Robert Mueller, Loretta Lynch, and Eric Holder financial disclosures and other documents. Bread crumb: Ciaramella attends a lot of Ukraine meetings with Liz Zentos. Here Zentos is with Hillary Clinton and P. Poroshenko in Dec. 2009 talking energy. Hillary sure seems like an expert on Uranium deals in the Fmr. Soviet Union… #HEU #UraniumTwo? wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/0…

“2017 Bielkova again attending a sponsored event alongside Burisma exec Gorbunenko talking Ukraine corporate welfare to oil and gas industry. And the Burisma announcement of favorable tax rates. Notably, Hunter Biden’s sole qualification is touted.”

“How do you say jackpot?

“To sum it all up, Ukraine pipeline magnate and Clinton donor dispatches Burisma-friendly
Ukraine MP Bielkova to DC to meet with Ciaramella, Zentos and McKramer at the same time Biden threatens to withhold Billion$ unless prosecutor investigating Burisma/son is fired. Dossier I & II stacked”

At American Thinker, Clarice Feldman found a great summation of the whole mess:

The DNC, Pelosi, Schiff, the media, progs in general and even the bureaucracy and FBI are in some respects a sideshow.

The real issue that ought to either-or-both frighten and enrage any honest American is that the “Intelligence Community” truly does now consider itself a law unto itself and has arrogated the power to actually decide who is a suitable president and who will be allowed to occupy the White House.

The genesis of Russia and the Ukraine has quite plainly been at its root the IC and especially the CIA.

They have, make no mistake, declared war on self-governance, unless we pick someone they approve of which is quite obviously not self-governance.

Thankfully the stupid bastards are remarkably incompetent and have been for decades but they still can, and are, causing a great deal of damage.

That is why, even though this is complicated, it is incumbent on American citizens to follow this story and know the facts. That’s what will save us.

Don’t Cry for Shep

Shepard Smith appeared to hate his Fox News audience. His snide comments and condescension won’t be missed by most of us.

Heck, most Fox News viewers opted out when he came on the channel.

I talked with him briefly at a Memphis rally for Senator to be Corker (I know, but he was better than Harold Ford Jr.). He promised to get his picture taken with me, but never did. That was OK, in fact I’m glad he didn’t. But that was the kind of self centered guy he is.

No one in the Fox audience will be crying over his loss.

Especially Tucker Carlson, who got in a spat with him, if you recall. Smith criticized him, saying, “Last night on this network, during primetime opinion programming, a partisan guest who supports President Trump was asked about Judge Napolitano’s legal assessment, and when he was asked, he said, unchallenged, Judge Napolitano is a fool. Attacking our colleague who’s here to offer legal assessments on our air in our work home is repugnant,” Smith said. He then listed people who agreed with Napolitano.
The next night Carlson brought on Joe DiGenova who destroyed Napolitano and criticized Smith. It is rumored Fox told Smith to knock it off.

We all remember Smith’s over the top Katrina coverage. It was a wall to wall Bush bash.

Now if only Chris Wallace would go, then Neil Cavuto and Juan Williams, Donna Brazile, Leland Vitter, Arthel Neville, Bret Baier, Chris Hahn…

A person can dream, can’t he/she/xe?

T-ing It Up

Last night President Trump was on fire at his Minneapolis rally.

He straightforwardly exposed the chasm between the Deep State and American citizens. His plain spoken truth delights Americans who have had enough of political blather. Trump hopped into the impeachment fight and the exposure of the Biden family to corruption and greed. He wondered out loud if there was a “Where’s Hunter?” t-shirt expressing the media’s refusal to question the former Vice President’s son about his Ukraine shenanigans.

Shortly after that his campaign strategist, Brad Parscale, had this up on twitter:

The description reads:
Where’s Hunter? Tee
$25.00
First he was fired by the Navy. Then, he made MILLIONS of dollars from overseas companies while his father was Vice President.
Now, he’s nowhere to be found! WHERE IS HUNTER BIDEN?
Get your LIMITED edition Where’s Hunter? Tee while supplies last!

Very good.

Mr. Midtown Republican came up with his own version:

In the coming days many more entries and memes will be made for Hunter.

Who Is This Man?

Who is the Inspector General of the Intelligence community, Michael Atkinson?

ICIG Michael Atkinson

It’s a question the media doesn’t really want to get into. Why?

First, you must realize that the group Lawfare is behind all these hoaxes hoping for Trump’s impeachment. No one has delved into Lawfare like The Conservative Treehouse. Here’s their synopsis:

Not enough people understand the role of the Lawfare group in the corruption and political weaponization of the DOJ, FBI and larger intelligence community.

What Media Matters is to corrupt left-wing media, the Lawfare group is to the corrupt DOJ and FBI.

All of the headline names around the seditious conspiracy against Donald Trump assemble within the network of the Lawfare group.

Three days after the October 21st, 2016, FISA warrant was obtained, Benjamin Wittes outlined the insurance policy approach. (Read the article here: https://www.lawfareblog.com/coalition-all-democratic-forces-part-iii-what-if-trump-wins)

FBI Director James Comey, FBI Legal Counsel James Baker, Comey memo recipient Daniel Richman, Deputy AG Sally Yates, Comey friend Benjamin Wittes, FBI lead agent Peter Strzok, FBI counsel Lisa Page, Mueller lead Andrew Weissmann and the Mueller team of lawyers, all of them -and more- are connected to the Lawfare group; and this network provides the sounding board for all of the weaponized approaches, including the various new legal theories as outlined within the Weissmann-Mueller Report.

The Lawfare continuum is very simple. The corrupt 2015 Clinton exoneration; which became the corrupt 2016 DOJ/FBI Trump investigation; which became the corrupt 2017 DOJ/FBI Mueller probe; is currently the 2019 “impeachment” plan. Weissmann and Mueller delivering their report evolved the plan from corrupt legal theory into corrupt political targeting. Every phase within the continuum holds the same goal.

The current “impeachment strategy” is planned-out within the Lawfare group.

Once you understand that, it is easy to see how everything transpired.

CT further elucidates:

“The center of the 2016 Lawfare Alliance election influence was/is the Department of Justice National Security Division, DOJ-NSD. It was the DOJ-NSD running the Main Justice side of the 2016 operations to support Operation Crossfire Hurricane and FBI agent Peter Strzok. It was also the DOJ-NSD where the sketchy legal theories around FARA violations (Sec. 901) originated.”

Here’s where the ICIG, Atkinson, comes in:

Michael K Atkinson was previously the Senior Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ-NSD) in 2016. That makes Atkinson senior legal counsel to John Carlin and Mary McCord who were the former heads of the DOJ-NSD in 2016 when the stop Trump operation was underway.

Michael Atkinson was the lawyer for the same DOJ-NSD players who: (1) lied to the FISA court (Judge Rosemary Collyer) about the 80% non compliant NSA database abuse using FBI contractors; (2) filed the FISA application against Carter Page; and (3) used FARA violations as tools for political surveillance and political targeting.

Yes, that means Michael Atkinson was Senior Counsel for the DOJ-NSD, at the very epicenter of the political weaponization and FISA abuse.

If the DOJ-NSD exploitation of the NSA database, and/or DOJ-NSD FISA abuse, and/or DOJ-NSD FARA corruption were ever to reach sunlight, current ICIG Atkinson -as the lawyer for the process- would be under a lot of scrutiny for his involvement.

Yes, that gives current ICIG Michael Atkinson a strong and corrupt motive to participate with the Pelosi-Schiff/Lawfare impeachment objective. Sketchy!

It now looks like the Lawfare network constructed the ‘whistle-blower’ complaint aka a Schiff Dossier, and handed it to allied CIA operative Michael Barry to file as a formal IC complaint. This process is almost identical to the Fusion-GPS/Lawfare network handing the Steele Dossier to the FBI to use as the evidence for the 2016/2017 Russia conspiracy.

This series of events is exactly what former CIA Analyst Fred Fleiz said last week. Fleitz has extensive knowledge of the whistleblower process. Fleitz said last week the Ukraine call whistle-blower is likely driven by political motives, and his sources indicate he had help from Congress members while writing it.

CT believes the “whistle blower” is Michael Barry.
The Deep State is like a cancer with evil tentacles infecting our body politic so deeply that it is hard to excise. Even another Trump term won’t be able to heal us. Unfortunately. But it can at least stop some of the malignant spread.

Did Atkinson Lie?

Many people think that in his testimony to Congress on Friday, he did lie.

Sean Davis at the Federalist explains:

In tense testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) on Friday, the inspector general for federal spy agencies refused to disclose why his office backdated secret changes to key whistleblower forms and rules in the wake of an anti-Trump whistleblower complaint filed in August, sources told The Federalist.

As The Federalist reported and the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) confirmed, the spy watchdog secretly changed its whistleblower forms and internal rules in September to eliminate a requirement that whistleblowers provide first-hand evidence to support any allegations of wrongdoing. In a press release last week, the ICIG confessed that it changed its rules in response to an anti-Trump complaint filed on August 12. That complaint, which was declassified and released by President Donald Trump in September, was based entirely on second-hand information, much of which was shown to be false following the declassification and release of a telephone conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general, told HPSCI lawmakers during a committee oversight hearing on Friday that the whistleblower forms and rules changes were made in September, even though the new forms and guidance, which were not uploaded to the ICIG’s website until September 24, state that they were changed in August. Despite having a full week to come up with explanations for his office’s decisions to secretly change its forms to eliminate the requirement for first-hand evidence and to backdate those changes to August, Atkinson refused to provide any explanation to lawmakers baffled by his behavior.

When pressed on the curious changes and attempts to obscure the timeline of his revisions, Atkinson refused to explain why the forms were backdated to August even though they were not made until September. The ICIG previously stated that it changed its forms and guidance “in response to recent press inquiries regarding” the anti-Trump complaint, of which Congress was not even notified until the second week of September. The new forms, which were not uploaded to the ICIG website until September 24, nonetheless stated that the revisions were made back in August.

Lawmakers honed in on the discrepancy during Atkinson’s appearance on Capitol Hill on Friday. How could the forms have been changed back in August if they were changed in response to press inquiries that could not have been made until mid-September at the earliest?

“[T]he timing of the removal of the first-hand information requirement raises questions about potential connections to this whistleblower’s complaint,” three House Republican lawmakers wrote in a letter to Atkinson on September 30. “This timing, along with numerous apparent leaks of classified information about the contents of this complaint, also raise questions about potential criminality in the handling of these matters.”

In an interview with Fox News, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the top Republican on HPSCI, intimated the secret changes to eliminate the requirement for first-hand information were intentionally made to accommodate the anti-Trump complainant, who offered no first-hand evidence of wrongdoing by the president.

“This guideline, they changed it because of this whistleblower,” Nunes, who said on Fox News last week. “[Atkinson] admits it in his own press release.”

Outrageous! And even more outrageous is the mainstream press’ unwillingness to report news detrimental to their Leftist cause to remove the president.

Is the American public that gullible? I don’t think so.
