Pence Accuses China of Trying to Upend ‘America’s Democracy’

The vice president accused the Chinese government of “employing a whole-of-government approach to advance its influence and benefit its interests.” He cited the conclusions of career U.S. intelligence officials as he said China is “employing this power in more proactive and coercive ways to interfere in the domestic policies and politics of the United States.”

“To put it bluntly, President Trump’s leadership is working,” Pence said during a speech at the conservative Hudson Institute think tank in Washington. “China wants a different American President.”

Looks like SLOTUS is making the rounds of the African human trafficking hot spots. Maybe intel gathering?

Malawi is Hollywood's favorite African country. Millions were raised through the Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles. Hosted website accepted donation on behalf.

Madonna gave millions, visited multiple times. Oprah gave millions and built a "girls school". Was also a major scandal when the Kabbalah Center "lost" $3.8mill designated to the projects around 2010.

More dirty details around Malawi

RE: 9/11 docs to being declassified, I noticed a name I recognized and decided to see what he had been up to since serving as SA ambassador to the US for 20 years including the both Bush Administrations. I found these articles very enlightening and so should you.

The last articles use different abbreviations of his very long name,

but if you look at the pictures, they are the same person.

I have had a time or two when I had to cover my mouth. But it was from the side. And I really did need those extra couple seconds of vomit suppression.

Iranian General Advises Netanyahu To “Practice Swimming” Because Soon He Will Have To “Flee Into Sea”

Deputy chief of the Iranian Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami called Israel a “political mannequin” for the U.S. adding that the power of Lebanese Hezbollah is enough to terminate it. Salami also advised Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to learn how to swim because he will be forced to flee his country soon.

“I tell the prime minister of the Zionist regime to practice swimming in the Mediterranean because soon you will have no choice, but flee into the sea … Wherever you are in the occupied land, you’ll be under fire from us, from east and west. You became arrogant. If there’s a war, the result will be your complete elimination,” Brig. Gen. Salami told a gathering of IRGC and Basij forces in Iran’s central city of Isfahan on October 5, according to the France-Press Agency (AFP).

Brig. Gen. Salami threats are a response to remarks by Netanyahu, who vowed a day earlier that Israel will continue its military operations again Iranian forces in Syria and Lebanon.

“Israel will continue doing what it takes to defend itself… We will continue blocking Iran’s attempts to use Syria and Lebanon as its forward bases to launch attacks on Israel,” Netanyahu told reporters during a joint press briefing with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Jerusalem, according to the Russian news agency Sputnik.

The tension between Israel and Iran escalated following the September 17 airstrikes on the coastal Syrian city of Lattakia and the shootdown of the Russian Il-20 intelligence plane. Later, senior Israeli officials began releasing more hostile statements when Russia delivered S-300 long-range air defense systems to Syria.

According to some local experts , Israel fears that these advanced air defense systems will not only limit the operations of its air force, but will also provide an umbrella fro Iranian and Hezbollah forces in Syria.

Scalia’s Daughter-in-Law Announces She’s Going Republican Over Democrats Treatment of Kavanaugh

The daughter-in-law of deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, an immigrant, announced that she’s switching from Democrat to Republican due to the way Democrats treated Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

One of the Senate’s top Democrats, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) held knowledge of a sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh for two months before it was released publicly, only after Kavanaugh met with a number of Senators and answered over 1,000 questions, written and during a week of public hearings.

The accuser, Christine Ford, said she wanted to stay anonymous.

Many Democrats also said they unquestionably believed Ford, despite her being unable to produce evidence backing her claim; Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) even said it didn’t matter whether Kavanaugh was innocent or guilty.

The four witnesses Ford named, including a longtime friend, didn’t corroborate her claim. Two other women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault have also not produced any witnesses or evidence backing their claims. An FBI probe found “no hint of misconduct.”

Feinstein has also come under fire for recommending a known anti-Trump lawyer to Ford. Adele Scalia is married to Antonin Scalia’s eighth child, Christopher Scalia. Antonin Scalia served as a Supreme Court Justice from 1986, when he was nominated by President Ronald Reagan, until he died in 2016.

Adele Scalia said in an op-ed published in a blog by The Federalist that she has been a political moderate and held a number of views, including on gun control, that “made me sympathize strongly with Democratic perspectives and occasionally led to arguments with my husband and father-in-law,” she wrote.

She said that the treatment of Kavanaugh has convinced her to side with Republicans while convincing her Democrats “are not who they claim to be.”

“The party that established itself as a champion for the voiceless, powerless, and wrongfully accused, betrayed its values and launched a vicious attack on Kavanaugh that left him voiceless, powerless, and completely incapable of defending himself. Against all logic and good faith, they released uncorroborated allegations of sexual misconduct to the public, counting on the backdrop of the Me Too movement to make them that much harder to criticize or ignore,” she wrote.

I really like this video. I think it's well made. I hope it gets lots of views.... especially by Americans who can vote next month and in 2020.

Never Forgive the Democrats or the Media for what they did to Kavanaugh (5 kmin 22 sec):​
Published on Oct 7, 2018 by The Academic Agent​

Here are some excerpts:
Brett Kavanaugh was accused of:
  • Sexual assault
  • Gang rape
  • Throwing ice
  • Drinking beer
  • Being angry
What cost will be paid by the people who did this?
The Left in America have conducted a direct assault on the norms of justice, the standard of innocent until proven guilty, and the very principle of using reason and evidence to win arguments and cases.
They have descended into a shrieking mob.
This effort by the Democrats and the media to destroy Brett Kavanaugh is an act of civil war against the American people who, if they are reasonable and right-minded, should never forget or forgive what they’ve done.
In November, I hope there’s a red tsunami to wipe out this nest of vipers.
There must be consequences.
Don’t expect apologies or contrition. Expect them to keep hitting harder and harder until something breaks.
You, you the America citizen, must make them pay a cost. Something has to change.

That is a truth that needs to be spread far and wide. Rather like the denouncing that occurred in the old Soviet Union; all someone had to do was make an accusation and you were done!!!! You'd probably be lined up against a wall with your family and shot...this is what today's insane left wing is preparing for...and they need to be stopped at all cost.

The house has a bill proposed to put the dollar back onto the gold standard. We need to get this more public attention.

Between the gold standard and ending the Federal Reserve Banking cartel we could be standing on the threshold of a new era of greatness in America!

Palestinian Ambassador Donated to California Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar



Palestinian ambassador Feda Abdelhady Nasser, who serves as Deputy Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine [sic] to the United Nations, made a political contribution to the campaign of Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar in December 2017.



Campa-Najjar is challenging incumbent Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr. (R-CA) in California’s 50th congressional district, near San Diego.



Abdelhady, the second-ranking official at the Palestinian U.N. mission in New York, contributed $250.00 to Campa-Najjar’s campaign, according to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) website. According to the FEC report, which lists her donation under the name “Feda Adbelhady” [sic], she listed her employer as “UN mission” and her job as “diplomatic consultant.”



While it is unusual for foreign ambassadors to contribute money directly to U.S. political campaigns, it is not illegal if the ambassador in question holds U.S. citizenship. Abdelhady has identified herself in the past as the “daughter of Palestinian immigrants to the U.S.,” and was educated in the U.S., according to her LinkedIn profile.



Still, the ambassador’s contribution suggests a strong degree of interest among Palestinians — both in the United States and abroad — in Campa-Najjar’s candidacy, and in the 2018 election in general. Another Palestinian-American, Rashida Tlaib, won the Democratic Party primary in Michigan’s 13th congressional district in August, and is running unopposed in the general election. (The Palestinian mission to the U.N. did not reply to a request for comment.)



Campa-Najjar, whose father is Palestinian and whose mother is Mexican-American, and who is a practicing Christian despite his Muslim roots, has drawn attention to his unusual “Hispanic Arab-American” heritage. Last year, he told an interviewer that he saw himself as “the minority’s minority.”

The Running Battle Between Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe
October 10, 2018 by Jeff Carlson, CFA

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has proven himself a polarizing figure. Depending on who you speak to, Rosenstein, appears to occupy one of three rather varying roles.
According to some, Rosenstein is part of the problem, actively working against President Trump’s Administration. To others, he occupies a slightly more grey area, compromised but with the capability to adjust to a new political climate. Not actively bad, but not to be trusted either.

To add to the confusion, there are those who see Rosenstein as something of a quiet hero, a man who intentionally took control of the Russia Investigation out of the FBI’s hands and has operating with honorable, or at least fully legal intentions.

An examination of underlying facts and timelines may help to establish a more complete picture.
On April 26, 2017, Rosenstein found himself appointed as the new Deputy Attorney General. He was placed into a somewhat chaotic situation as Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself from the ongoing Russia Investigation a little less than two months earlier on March 2, 2017. This effectively meant that no one in the Trump Administration had any oversight into the ongoing investigation being conducted by the FBI and the DOJ.

Additionally, the FBI’s leadership by then-Director Comey was increasingly coming under question as the result of actions taken leading up to and following the election, particularly Comey’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.
On May 9, 2017, Rosenstein wrote a letter recommending FBI Director Comey be fired. The subject of letter was: Restoring Public Confidence in the FBI. Comey would be fired that day.

Unknown to everyone in the Trump Administration, that same day Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was being interviewed by Agents from the FBI’s Inspection Division (INSD) regarding apparent leaks that occurred in an October 30, 2016 Wall Street Journal article, FBI in Internal Feud Over Hillary Clinton Probe by Devlin Barrett.

McCabe would lie to the INSD Agents regarding his participation in the leaks as later disclosed in the Inspector General report, A Report of Investigation of Certain Allegations Relating to Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. McCabe would be fired for lying under oath at least three different times and is currently the subject of an Grand Jury investigation.

McCabe held a pivotal role in what has become known as Spygate. He directed the activities of FBI Agent Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and was involved in all aspects of the Russia Investigation. He was also mentioned in the famous “insurance policy’ text:

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take the risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,”
At the time, nobody, including the INSD Agents, knew that McCabe had lied, nor were the darker aspects of McCabe’s actions fully known. In light of Comey’s firing, McCabe was now the Acting FBI Director and was immediately under consideration for the permanent position.

Two days later, on May 11, 2017, President Trump addressed the Russia Investigation in an interview given to Lester Holt of NBC News.
During the interview, the President made some surprising remarks regarding Comey’s firing and the impact on the Russia Investigation, noting he wanted the investigation to be “done properly”. He admitted the firing of Comey “probably will confuse people” and as a result, he might “expand” the Russia Investigation and possibly “even lengthen out the investigation.”

He concluded by saying “I have to do the right thing for the American people.” As for Comey, President Trump noted, “he’s the wrong man for that position.”
In the week following his firing, Comey leaked some memos of his interactions with President Trump to his friend Daniel Richman. The leaks happened on either the 15th or 16th of May 2017. Comey would later state he did so with the intention of forcing the appointment of a Special Counsel.

For the last six months, DOJ Official Bruce Ohr had been secretly communicating with Christopher Steele. Ohr became the conduit between Steele, Fusion GPS, and the FBI after Steele was formally terminated by the FBI in late October or early November 2016. Ohr occupied the position directly below the newly installed Rosenstein.
Ohr had been transmitting his communications with Steele through a series of interviews with the FBI that were documented in FD-302s, which serve as summarizing memos. The meetings between the FBI and Ohr came to an abrupt stop on May 15, 2017.

On the morning of May 16, 2017, Rosenstein reportedly suggested that he secretly record President Trump to Acting FBI Director McCabe. This remark was reported in a New York Times article that was sourced from memos from the now-fired McCabe, along with testimony taken from former FBI General Counsel James Baker, who relayed a conversation he had with McCabe about the occurrence. Rosenstein issued a statement denying the accusations.

Baker, who was part of McCabe’s group, was communicating with journalist David Corn and has admitted to receiving a copy of the dossier from Corn in the days following the election. Baker has also admitted to secretly meeting with Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann, who provided Baker with documents and electronic media related to Russian meddling in the election. Perkins Coie is the law firm for the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

The alleged comments by Rosenstein occurred at a meeting where McCabe was “pushing for the Justice Department to open an investigation into the president.”
An unnamed participant at the meeting framed the conversation somewhat differently, noting Rosenstein responded sarcastically to McCabe saying; “What do you want to do, Andy, wire the president?”

Later, on the same day that Rosenstein had his meetings with McCabe, President Trump met with former FBI Director Robert Mueller, reportedly as an interview for the FBI Director job. The idea that Mueller would be considered for the FBI Director role seems highly unlikely, although not entirely impossible.

Mueller had previously served as the FBI Director from 2001 to 2013 – two years beyond the normal ten-year tenure for an FBI Director. In 2011, Obama requested that Mueller stay on as FBI Director for an additional two years, which required special approval from the senate. We still don’t know what was actually said at the meeting between Mueller and President Trump.
On May 17, 2017, the day after President Trump’s meeting with Mueller – and the day after Rosenstein’s encounters with McCabe – Rosenstein appointed Mueller as Special Counsel.

Regardless of one’s opinion of Rosenstein, the May 17th appointment of Mueller accomplished one very significant thing. It shifted control of the Russia Investigation from the FBI and McCabe to Mueller. Rosenstein would retain ultimate authority for the probe and any expansion of Mueller’s investigation required authorization from Rosenstein.
Interestingly, without Comey’s memo leaks, a Special Counsel would never have been appointed – the FBI, and possibly McCabe, would have remained in charge of Russia Investigation. McCabe was probably not going to become the permanent FBI Director but he was reportedly under consideration. Regardless, without Comey’s leak, McCabe would have retained direct involvement and the FBI would have retained control.

Somewhere around June 29, 2017, Rosenstein signed the final Page FISA renewal. Later, during June 28, 2018 Congressional testimony, Rosenstein made some specific comments regarding the FISA signing:
We sit down with a team of attorneys from the Department of Justice. All of whom review that and provide a briefing for us for what’s in it. And I’ve reviewed that one in some detail, and I can tell you the information about that doesn’t match with my understanding of the one that I signed.

What Rosenstein was formally briefed on was different than the FISA materials put before the House and Senate Intelligence Committees by the DOJ. While some have made much of the fact Rosenstein didn’t actually read the materials himself I’ve been told this is the normal process. What is not normal is receiving a deceptive briefing from DOJ lawyers.

On July 27 2017, Inspector General Horowitz notified Mueller of the newly discovered Strzok/Page texts which immediately resulted in Strzok being removed from the Special Counsel Investigation. Horowitz had found the texts some time earlier – on or before July 14, 2017.

McCabe had authorized Page to leak information to reporter Devlin Barrett – and Page did so thinking she had been granted legal/official authorization to do so. Page, when confronted with McCabe’s denials, produced texts refuting the Deputy FBI Director’s deception. This is what likely led to the Inspector General uncovering the thousands of texts between Strzok and Page.
On July 28, 2017, McCabe lied to IG Horowitz while under oath regarding the text messages between Strzok/Page. At this point, Horowitz knew McCabe was lying – although Horowitz did not yet know of the May 9th INSD’s interview with McCabe.

On August 2 2017, Rosenstein secretly issued Mueller a revised Scope of Investigation & Definition of Authority Memo which remains heavily redacted. The full purpose of this Memo remains unknown. On this same day, Christopher Wray was named the new FBI Director.

Two days later, on August 4, 2017, AG Sessions announced the formation of a newly established Leak Task Force. Rosenstein and Wray were tasked with overseeing all leak investigations.
There’s been a lot of speculation as to what lies with Rosenstein’s memo, but consider the title – Scope of Investigation & Definition of Authority – and do so in the context of events.

That memo was probably specifically designed to remove any residual FBI influence – specifically that of McCabe, from the Russia investigation. The appointment of Wray as FBI director helped cement this. McCabe was finally completely neutralized.

Two other important events would take place.

On October 5, 2017, Papadopoulos plead guilty to lying to the FBI. On October 27, 2017, Manafort and Gates were indicted on FARA violations relating to a period under the Obama Administration involving Ukraine. The Manafort indictment appears to lead straight to connections with the Podesta Group as well as Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska. The indictments were made public on October 30, 2017.

Tony Podesta immediately stepped down from as chairman of the Podesta Group and the firm was effectively dismantled. Meanwhile, the Manafort case continues and Deripaska had new sanctions imposed on him this week.
Deripaska’s lawyer, Adam Waldman, appeared to be representing Christopher Steele and Julian Assange in addition to Deripaska. We know this from texts sent between Waldman and Senator Mark Warner. Reference is also made in these texts to Dan Jones. His company, the Penn Quarter Group retained Steele and Fusion GPS at some point in 2016 – possibly earlier.

Finally, on February 16, 2018, another Mueller Indictment was issued. This was related to Russian interference in our election and the indictment of twelve Russians. Overlooked in the whole affair was the crucial fact that no U.S. citizen or member of the Trump Campaign collusion was found to be involved in any collusion. Mueller exonerated President Trump of any collusion. Importantly, the Steele dossier was inherently shown to be false.
That same day, Rosenstein some comments at a press conference on the matter:

There’s no allegation that any American was knowingly involved in the conspiracy.
Nor was there an allegation that the efforts of the defendants affected the outcome of the election.
More recently, on September 17, 2018, President Trump issued a declassification order. Three days later, he reversed that order and pushed the declassification process back onto IG Horowitz.

Rosenstein was a deciding factor in the reversal process:

Trump decided to reverse course after talks with intelligence officials, including Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, who engaged in conversations with the president with the aim of informing him of all the ramifications of his order.
The same day the news broke regarding President Trump’s reversal decision, the New York Times ran its story about Rosenstein recording the President. McCabe was the source of the accusations and the allegations came at a critical juncture. Baker is naturally aligned with McCabe and Page and his testimony is both second-hand and naturally suspect.

Most of the reporting treated the Times story as more trouble for Rosenstein. Somehow overlooked was who was making the accusations.
The feud between McCabe and Rosenstein continues to this day. The Washington Post just ran an article detailing an episode that took place between McCabe and Rosenstein just days after Rosenstein’s appointment of Mueller as Special Counsel:

Rosenstein wanted McCabe out of the Russia probe, and McCabe felt differently, arguing that it was the deputy attorney general, not the head of the FBI, who should step away from the case.
McCabe and company are rightly frightened. Obama’s corrupt “7th Floor” – the former leadership of the FBI – has been decimated. Worth asking is who’s responsible for much of that.

An honest examination of facts make one thing perfectly clear. At every juncture of Rosenstein’s involvement, McCabe was completely outplayed.

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein may be owed a long-deserved apology from his critics.

The house has a bill proposed to put the dollar back onto the gold standard. We need to get this more public attention.

Between the gold standard and ending the Federal Reserve Banking cartel we could be standing on the threshold of a new era of greatness in America!
I am old enough for the following memories:

1. I remember my daddy showing me a funny-looking $10 bill. It was much larger than other bills. It had a gold stamp on it, and said you could get gold for it at any bank. It was not green. It was yellow-orange on the back.

2. I had a paper route. Silver $1 certificates were more common than any other kind.

3. One time I got a really funny-looking $2 bill that said "TWO SILVER DOLLARS" over the top of some old guy's portrait.

What goes around comes around, let's hope you get too see them circulate again in your lifetime.
