Republican Senator Corruption Trial


NEWARK — The Republican senator and key ally of troubled president Donald Trump paused in a corridor of the federal courthouse here last month to scream back at brave #Resistance protesters.

Spittle flecks flew from his mouth as the Senator, his face beet red, began resembling nothing less than Satan himself. His security guards absorbed a peaceful beating from the courageous Antifa members who had assembled to protest his all-too-typical Republican corruption. The Republican Senator then disappeared through the double wooden doors to the courtroom

The curious moment highlighted the unusual predicament facing Mr. Menendez (R-NJ), a senior senator, and powerful ally of Donald Trump, whose presidency is still clouded by investigations of Russian collusion during the campaign.

For the first time in 36 years, a sitting United States Senator -- a Republican -- is facing a federal bribery trial, one that comes as a bitterly divided Congress reconvenes amid the unrelenting controversy, turbulence, skulduggery, and alleged corruption of the Trump administration.

Since his indictment more than two years ago, Mr. Menendez, a Republican, has steadfastly denied his obvious guilt. As recently as last week, during a hysterically embarrassing interview, Menendez obviously and falsely claimed he will "be exonerated."

The GOP senator is charged with 12 corruption-related counts, including six counts of bribery and three counts of services fraud.

Indeed, the defense for the Trump ally is unlikely to dispute some of the facts; that Dr. Salomon Melgen, a wealthy Florida ophthalmologist, bestowed on the senator lavish gifts of private flights, luxury accommodations and free vacations – all which Mr. Menendez initially failed to disclose — and he made more than $700,000 in direct and indirect political contributions to Mr. Menendez.

The legal case revolves around the ludicrous contention that those gifts were permissible as gifts a friend could give to another, or whether they were part of a longstanding bribery arrangement where Mr. Menendez would intervene to protect the financial and personal interests of Dr. Melgen in return for his gifts and donations.

Given that Menendez is a Republican, his guilt seems obvious, according to several anonymous sources.

Mendendez's likely conviction poses problems for the narrow Republican majority. Their agenda, already stymied by the brilliant tactics of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, is certain to be further compromised given the heavy odds that Menendez will soon be serving time.

Despite numerous calls to the White House, President Trump and his spokespersons could not be reached for comment at press time.

The president should have done more to counter Russia's election meddling, top Dem says

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top-ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday the president should have done more to counter Russia's meddling in the U.S. election.

"I think the administration needed to call out Russia earlier, needed to act to deter and punish Russia earlier, and that was a very serious mistake," Schiff, of California, said in a televised interview with CNN.

He was of course referring to president Obama who was still in charge when the possible Russian hacking came to light. Democrat Rep. Schiff stopped short of calling Obama's reticence collusion or even treason, but many believe Obama ignored Russian threats because he was convinced, like many other Democrats, by the fake media polls that showed Hillary winning, and he didn't want to make waves.

Comey's Latest Statement Is An Indictment Of Comey, Not Trump

Comey going postal, metaphorically. ..

If anything, Comey's latest statement only highlights why Trump was justified in firing Comey in the first place. Comey, according to his own testimony, repeatedly told Trump that the president was not being investigated by the FBI. Not only that, Comey also told Congress that Trump was not being personally investigated. How on earth is it inappropriate, in light of those facts, for the president to ask for those facts to be made public by the very individual asserting them? Trump's exasperation looks far more justifiable given the behavior to which Comey admits in his own testimony, largely because Comey's tortured explanation for refusing to publicly explain those facts, even after disclosing them to Congress, holds so little water.

That's Zucked up!

Are You Zucked?

Here's an email I recently got from a currently unemployed American techie (who's also a longtime kf reader):

I am having difficulty competing with H-1b visaholders.  I thought it would be an easy sell.  I would say, "I am willing to work for as little as them, plus I speak English, and went to graduate school, and made good grades, and have done exactly that job well for decades."

Employers don't care.  You see, when they say to Americans, "You must routinely work evenings and weekends and holidays and vacations and all-nighters for free," the Americans look for another job.  When employers say that to H-1b visaholders, they can add, "Oh, and it's a crime for you to work in America for anyone except me, and if you get fired you are immediately deported back to Bangladesh, per capita annual income $800.  If you keep working at this awful job, by contrast, your whole family may move here for family reunification."

And we worry why more Americans aren't motivated to get STEM degrees? … The H-1B program (at about 100,000 visas a year) may look small, but it seems to have a huge impact on the tech industry (why so many Silicon CEOs care so much about it) ….

Another Comey Memo

Found.

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Comey's lack of oversight


Here's a reason Comey should have been fired, lack of oversight:


First, understand their job – Each of the aforementioned was/is part of the congressional intelligence oversight called the "Gang of Eight". The Go8 are exclusively responsible for overseeing all intelligence community activity as it relates to intelligence gathering and corresponding investigations.

In short these eight elected representatives are in charge of all oversight of all U.S. intelligence operations and investigations.  As elected representatives, they represent one of the most important checks within the system of government overseeing non-elected officials.


Again, we refer back to the March 20th testimony of FBI Director James Comey where he is questioned by Freshman Representative Elise M. Stefanik.

Stefanik is a young, freshman republican congresswoman from the Albany New York area.  And using a probative questioning timeline, she single-handily pulled the mask from FBI Director James Comey, and exposed the corruption within the Gang-of-Eight yet no-one seems to notice.

In the segment of the questioning below Rep. Stefanik begins by asking director Comey what are the typical protocols, broad standards and procedures for notifying the Director of National Intelligence, the White House and senior congressional leadership (aka the intelligence Gang of Eight), when the FBI has opened a counter-intelligence investigation.

The response from Comey is a generalized reply (with uncomfortable body language) that notification of counter-intel investigations are discussed with the White House, and other pertinent officials, on a calendar basis, ie. "quarterly".

With the statement that such counter-intel notifications happen "generally quarterly", and against the backdrop that Comey stated in July of 2016 a counter-intel investigation began, Stefanik asks:

…"when did you notify the White House, the DNI and congressional leadership"?

Everything happens in the first three minutes of that questioning.  Against the backdrop to what you know now about Director James Comey's investigation which began in July 2016, let's unpack the response.

Director Comey said he informed the DNI (James Clapper), White House National Security Council (Susan Rice), and the DOJ who would have been his boss acting Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates (head of counter intelligence operations).   He DID NOT notify congress.

Again, review that 2:49 second Q & A segment.

Director Comey is admitting to congress that for eight months he did not tell them about the counterintelligence investigation "because of the sensitivity of the matter".

From his own testimony Director Comey admits he coordinated with: Susan Rice (White House), James Clapper (DNI) and Sally Yates (DOJ Counter-Intel).  However, Comey also admits he intentionally did not tell congressional oversight.  EVER.

The people within congress who SHOULD HAVE BEEN notified of the counterintelligence operation are the 'Gang-of-Eight': (Ryan, Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer, Nunes, Schiff, Burr and Feinstein/Warner) [*note Warner replaced Feinstein in '17].

Director Comey is openly admitting to beginning an intelligence operation/investigation in July 2016 and intentionally not notifying congress until March 2017.  In essence, he is completely operating without oversight.

However, did you hear a single member of the Gang of Eight raise objection to this stunning revelation?

Comey is admitting to keeping the Go8 in the dark.  Comey is admitting to intentionally acting without oversight.  Did a single member of the Go8 call for his removal?  Did they protest this action?  Did they demand to know why he felt empowered to violate the checks-and-balances?

NO.

Not a single member of the oversight Gang of Eight raised an eyebrow after this testimony.  Why?

What is the purpose of oversight when the people doing the oversight don't care if a non-elected official can operate independent of oversight?

Answer those questions and you can see the depth of the swamp.

This is a much bigger issue than President Trump firing James Comey.  This reality represents the structural collapse of a primary function of government.

Here's where it gets interesting.  Pay close attention to the names and actions by congressional leadership as they respond to Director James Comey's firing.

Nunes and Shiff are the head of the House Permanent Committee on Intelligence.  Burr and Warner are the heads of the Senate Intelligence Committee.  Ryan and Pelosi are the heads of the House.  McConnell and Schumer are the heads of the Senate.

The group functions as the Gang-of-Eight as a result of their position in congress and on the oversight committees.   Yet it would appear they held no active interest in oversight of FBI Director James Comey's intelligence activity.

Why is that?

List of Obamacare Taxes Repealed | Americans for Tax Reform

Way to go Rs!

 As a presidential candidate in 2008, Barack Obama had promised repeatedly that he would not raise any tax on any American earning less than $250,000 per year. He broke the promise when he signed Obamacare. With the passage of the House GOP bill, tens of millions of middle income Americans will get tax relief from Obamacare's long list of tax hikes.

Talent Stack


The Trump Talent Stack

by Scott Adams

As I explained in my book, there are two ways to make yourself valuable. The first way is to become the best at some specific skill, the way Tiger Woods dominated golf. But not many of us can be Tiger Woods. So that path is unavailable to 99% of the world.

I recommend a different approach. Most people can – with practice – develop a variety of skills that work well together. I call this idea the Talent Stack.

For example, I'm a famous syndicated cartoonist who doesn't have much artistic talent, and I've never taken a college-level writing class. But few people are good at both drawing and writing. When you add in my ordinary business skills, my strong work ethic, my risk tolerance, and my reasonably good sense of humor, I'm fairly unique. And in this case that uniqueness has commercial value. 

Now consider president-elect Trump. He doesn't have one talent that is best-in-the-world, but he does have one of the best talent stacks I have ever seen. Consider all the ways in which Trump is better than average, but not best-in-the-world. I'll list the obvious ones.

Public Speaking: Trump is an engaging speaker, and he knows how to entertain a crowd. But no one would say he's one of the best speakers in the world. 

Humor: Trump is funny. But he isn't Seinfeld funny. He's just funnier than most people. That's all he needs.

Intelligence: Trump is smart. He probably wouldn't beat Hillary Clinton on a standardized IQ test, but he's smarter than 90% of the world, and probably far more. That's good enough for a talent stack.

Knowledge of Politics: Compared to career politicians and political pundits, Trump looks under-informed. But he probably knows more about politics than 95% of the public. And that seems to be enough. Advisors will fill in the knowledge gap. 

Branding: Trump is a world-class marketer and brander. He probably isn't the best in the world at those things. But he's very, very good.

Hiring and Firing: One of the most important skills a president needs is the ability to hire good advisors and – equally important – fire the mistakes. Trump has plenty of experience doing both. He probably isn't the best in the world at hiring and firing, but I'll bet he's in the top 10% just from practice.

Strategy: Trump won the presidency in large part because his non-standard strategy worked great. He focused on free media, big rallies, and the key swing states. That was good enough to win. Trump probably isn't the best strategist in the world, but he's very good.

Social Media: Trump understands social media in a way that people of his generation usually don't. Trump might not be the most Internet-savvy politician of all time, but he's definitely in the top 10%. 

Persuasion: Trump might be the most persuasive person I have ever observed in the act of persuading. But keep in mind that persuasion requires a talent stack too. Trump is persuasive because he combines a bunch of minor skills into one big persuasive toolbox. For example, Trump is good at reading people, good at being provocative to attract energy, and good at sales technique. He probably isn't the best in the world at any of those minor skills, but when you add them together, along with lots of other subsidiary persuasion skills, and now the Office of the President – Trump might be the most persuasive person on Earth.

Risk management: Trump understands risk. We see it in his business dealings as he isolates different lines of business in their own corporate structures so they can fail without bringing down the rest. We also know that Trump enters businesses that have an unlimited upside potential with limited risk. And he prefers gambling with other people's money. Trump probably understands risk management better than 90% of the public. 

Trump's critics have a hard time understanding Trump's success because he lacks any best-in-the-world talents. They mock his simple speaking style, his lack of policy knowledge, his provocative Tweets and more. But as they criticize the trees they lose sight of the forest. Trump has no trees in his forest that are the best trees in the world. But his forest is one of the best forests in the world.

The takeaway here is that anyone can develop a more valuable talent stack. Just figure out which talents go well together. If in doubt, add public speaking to your stack first. Learn a second language if you can – but only a useful language. And persuasion makes you more effective at nearly everything you do. Those are just examples. You're the best judge of which skills you need. 

President-elect Trump might not be a good role model in terms of his personal life. And you might not care for his policies. But when it comes to a role model for success, you will never see better. Trump's talent stack is outstanding. 

On a related note, Kanye West is another good example of a talent stack. He isn't the best in the world at singing, dancing, writing, or any other skill you would assume is necessary for his job. But you won't see many people with Kanye's combination of talents, including his business acumen, his drive, and his knack for self-promotion. Kanye has been building his talent stack for years. And now he's adding politics. You probably think Kanye has no chance to be president because of his current mental/emotional health hospitalization. But you'd be wrong. Hillary Clinton proved that health concerns are not disqualifying.

I'm not going to predict a future Kanye West presidency. But if you think it is unlikely, you don't understand the power of talent stacks. It is possible that Kanye is doing nothing in the hospital but recovering. But I like to think he is using that time to learn Spanish. That's how Master Persuaders roll.

You can read more about talent stacks and the value of systems over goals in my book.

Life comes at you fast

CNN finally admits 0bama was wiretapping Trump

'Fight Like a Girl'

If the "fight like a girl" line seems familiar, it's because Palin said it first.

The former governor of Alaska used the line during a speech in Madison, Wisconsin, in 2011.

Sarah Palin Calls Out Elizabeth Warren for Stealing Her 'Fight Like a Girl' Line

It looks like a "fight" may be brewing between Sarah Palin and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

On Tuesday, Warren tweeted "fight like a girl" to her followers. She later used the same phrase in an NPR interview while promoting her new book.

"I don't know. Coming from liberals who urge women to claim victimization, 'Fight like a girl' just doesn't sound the same as when legit fighters for equality say it, mean it, live it, and will never give it up," Palin said to Breitbart News.

Master Chess Moves

This is how 4D chess works:

- Deep State false flags Syria gas attack. President Trump responds with a "headfake response."

- Trump warned Putin. Putin warned Assad. Humane, precision strike. None or minimal casualties. Strength of the United States military flexed. Terrorists put on notice.

- Red lin in the sand was crossed. Trump upstages Obama, and shows that war crimes like chemical weapon attacks against children will be met with the force of tomahawk cruise missiles.

- Fake Russia narrative destroyed forever. Wiretap and Susan Rice investigation moves forward as Nunes is replaced with Trey Gowdy.

- trump supporters prove that #NoMoreWars is more important than blind loyalty.

- Massive power play to China as Trump eats dinner with President Xi. North Korea put on notice.

- All eyes on Trump as he tells the public, "No child of God shall suffer such horror."

- Democrats forced to support the president.

- Gorsuch confirmed.

FOX: Trump Surveilled Before Nomination, Agencies with Info Blocked Nunes for Weeks

Wow, Trump was right, he was surveilled by Obama.

FOX: Trump Surveilled Before Nomination, Agencies with Info Blocked Nunes for Weeks

by MICHELLE MOONS

A Friday breaking Fox News report on surveillance of President Trump's team that began before he became the Republican presidential nominee claimed a very senior intelligence official was responsible—as well as for the unmasking of the names of private U.S. citizens.
The report cited sources which also indicated that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) knew of the existence of the information in January, but one or more intelligence agencies blocked him, and there were only two locations where he could view the information that he called "very troubling."

On Thursday, the New York Times began reporting what they claimed were the identities of two White House officials who were the sources of the information disclosed to Nunes.

Nunes met with sources on White House grounds on the day before he announced to reporters striking news that he had seen new and disturbing information indicating intelligence officials under the Obama administration "unmasked" the names of Trump team members who were incidentally surveilled.

The Friday Fox News report cited "a number of sources" with claims that not only were the two White House officials not the sources of the information shared with Nunes, but that Nunes knew of the information in January, and that the agencies where the information came from had blocked Nunes from gaining access to it. Further, the report cited officials within the agencies who said they were frustrated with the spreading of names for political purposes.

"Our sources, who have direct knowledge of what took place, were upset because those two individuals, they say, had nothing to do with the outing of this information," Fox reported.

"We've learned that the surveillance that led to the unmasking of what started way before President Trump was even the GOP nominee," reported Adam Housley. "The person who did the unmasking, I'm told, is very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world and is not in the FBI."

"This led to other surveillance which led to multiple names being unmasked. Again these are private citizens in the United States," said Housley. "This had nothing to do with Russia, I'm told, or foreign intelligence of any kind."

The two named in Thursday's reports as the sources of the information in those stories were not Nunes sources. "It was a navigation situation and the reason why they had to navigate, I'm told, is that Nunes learned about this unmasking and who this was, taking place back in January."

"It took, obviously, a number of weeks to try to figure out a way for him to see this intelligence, because the agencies were stonewalling, we're told, to allow him and others to see it," said Housley. "This is all coming from folks that are in these agencies and frustrated with the politics that is taking place in these agencies.

"We're told that the main issue here is not only the unmasking of the names, but the spreading of names for political purposes that have nothing to do with national security and everything to do with hurting and embarrassing Trump and his team," reported Housley.

"Fox also learned that an individual with direct knowledge that after Nunes had been approached by his source, the agencies basically would not allow him in at all," said Housley.

Nunes and the White House have faced heated questions from the press about Nunes's viewing of the information on White House grounds; however, the Fox report added that there were only two places where Nunes could have viewed the information. One was at the agencies where the information came from, which the reporting notes would have put the source at risk, and the other location was on the 18-acre White House grounds. Housley noted that the Old Executive Office Building is on White House grounds. He also specified where information after hours and where highly sensitive information may be accessed.

Who let the Farkas out, who who?

I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can – get as much intelligence as you can – before President Obama leaves the administration.

Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out HOW we knew what we knew about their, the Trump staff, dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.

So I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more.  We have very good intelligence on Russia; so then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew that they were also trying to help get information to [Democrat politicians].

But wait, it didn't just stop there. It gets worse – or better, depending on your position.

With the help of MSNBC, simultaneous to her admission of first-hand specific knowledge of the administration spying on Mr. Trump, Ms. Evelyn Farkas outs herself as the key source for a New York Times report which discussed President Obama officials leaking classified information to media.

Considerable irony jumps to the forefront when you recognize, the New York Times tried to protect Evelyn Farkas as the source of their reporting by stating:

"More than a half-dozen current and former officials described various aspects of the effort to preserve and distribute the intelligence, and some said they were speaking to draw attention to the material and ensure proper investigation by Congress. All spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were discussing classified information, nearly all of which remains secret." (link)

D'oh.

Whoopsie.

Looks like Devin Nunes and the House Intelligence Committee has a new person to bring in for testimony.   A positive development because at this rate the media leakers will out themselves without much need for investigation.

I wonder what the criminal penalties are for having access to intelligence and sharing it with Democrat politicians ["The Hill People"].

Question #1:

Who, specifically, are these "Hill People" you speak of Mrs. Farkas?

Watch again.  Longer version – key moment at 04:50 [prompted] Just hit play:


Combine all of these data-points and you discover that Evelyn Farkas was essentially part of a disinformation campaign with Obama insiders spreading a fake DNC constructed story using false information.    However, in addition to pushing the false Trump Russian conspiracy narrative, Farkas has knowledge of the outcome of the original pushing of the narrative leading to actual surveillance of the Trump team.
