The ideological war between the opposing forces of globalization and constitutional nationalism continues to escalate. Specifically, in the United States, the battle lines were recently redefined by the four-page House Intelligence Committee memo that was unveiled on Groundhog’s Day, February 2, 2018. History repeated, once again, as groundhogs exited their holes all over America, squinted into the sunlight, and saw shadows of ever-expanding government corruption.
The memo, in essence, transmuted the alleged conspiracy of Donald Trump’s and Russia’s overturning of the 2016 Presidential Election into actual collusion between former president Obama’s Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Department of Justice (DoJ), with Hillary Clinton’s Campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC), to illegally preempt said election. The revelations from the Groundhog Day Memo describe specific actions (and omissions) committed by officials in the Obama administration that have resulted in the illicit subversion of Donald J. Trump, the constitutionally elected President of the United States.
Stated in simpler terms, the Groundhog Day Memo has transitioned the Russiagate investigation into Obamagate.
As expected, members of the unelected administrative deep state, the military industrial complex, the corporate mainstream media, Democratic Party hacks, Senator John McCain, and the liberal political punditry from coast-to-coast, have chosen to double-down on their collective obfuscation and outright lies.
The American Leftists are not concerned about the illegal omissions of material facts by top FBI and DoJ officials in their pursuit of a FISA warrant on low-hanging fruit, Carter Page, who was involved with Trump’s campaign in 2016. They see no problem with high-ranking justice department official Bruce Ohr’s secret collaboration with his wife Nellie, who worked for Fusion GPS, the firm behind the now infamous Russian Dossier against Trump. The very same dossier that was funded by Hillary Clinton and the DNC which, according to the memo, was cited as the reason for the surveillance warrant on Page.
On the contrary, the Political Left and the lying liberals in mainstream media are defending the crimes described in the Groundhog Day Memo with feigned technicalities, contrived nuance, manufactured misrepresentations, and levels of political spin not seen since former U.S. President, William Jefferson Clinton, questioned the definition of what “is” is. First they all fought the release of the memo and now are daily attempting to discredit its revelations.
They do so because they are the political establishment. They are the swamp.
Let’s review what we now know:
Beginning in 2016, Democrat President Obama, on behalf of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, weaponized the FBI and DoJ against Republican presidential candidate, Donald J. Trump. Upon Trump’s defeat of his Republican primary opponents in early 2016, Operation Russiagate was launched. The investigation was thinly predicated upon the drunken claims, in a London bar, by a member of Trump’s foreign policy advisory panel, George Papadopoulos. Eventually, Carter Page, who was another one of Trump’s foreign policy advisors, was targeted as well. It has been reported Page was surveilled in 2013 because of his contacts in Russia.
However, the alleged misdeeds of Page and Papadopoulos were not enough to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant in order to spy on the Trump campaign. As reporter, Louise Mensch, for the news website Heat Street, indicated in the Fall of 2016 (in an article since scrubbed from the internet), the first Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) request was declined in June, 2016, but was later approved in October, 2016. The claims were also confirmed in the New York Times, on January 20, 2017.
Strangely, the very same month the original FISC request was denied, the now infamous snakes on a plane meeting took place between Former President Bill Clinton and Obama’s then Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. They both claimed to have discussed their grandchildren only on that airport tarmac in Phoenix. What else could they have talked about?
We may never know.
But now, because of the Groundhog Day Memo, we do know the Hillary Clinton and DNC financed Russian Dossier, according to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, was used to finally obtain the FISA warrant required to spy on Team Trump. The 90-day surveillance warrant on Carter Page was then renewed three times. It appears this was done in order to dig up political dirt and diminish Trump’s chances of winning the 2016 Presidential Election and, later, to undermine his presidency. At the same time, the culprits specifically named in the memo (i.e. James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr) seemingly conspired to bury the multifarious crimes of Hillary Clinton.
The first views, if you will, of multiple shadows growing in succession.
After Trump won the election, the phony Russian conspiracy was then utilized:
1.) By online social networks to censor the alternative media
2.) By President Obama to sign into law the “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” on December 23, 2016
3.) By Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, to feloniously unmask Trump administration officials
5.) By deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, to appoint his trusted, dear friend and collaborator, Robert Mueller, as Special Counsel to investigate President Trump’s non-existent collusion with Russia
6.) By Robert Mueller to obtain minor process crimes on Paul Manafort (Trump’s former campaign chairman), Rick Gates (business associate of Manafort), George Papadopoulos (Trump’s former foreign policy advisor) and Michael Flynn (Trump’s former national security advisor)
7.) By Robert Mueller to transition the imaginary Russiagate Collusion into a bogus Obstruction of Justice investigation against Trump for firing former FBI Director, James Comey
Paradoxically, regarding shadow # 7 above: Trump, in his termination letter to Comey, stated he was acting upon the recommendations of Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, and Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein. Furthermore, according to the Groundhog Day Memo, we now know that Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller to be special counsel, signed off on at least one of the misrepresented, and therefore illegal, FISA applications on Trump.
Of course no one is talking about these points of fact.
But wait. There’s more.
While reports of Trump’s fictitious collusion with the Russians continue to dominate the Lamestream Media’s talking points, the actual sale of twenty-percent of America’s uranium deposits to Russia, which resulted in the Uranium One payments to the Clinton Foundation, remains, predictably, under-reported. This, even though it was confirmed by the New York Times in 2015.
Moreover, Obama’s FBI and DoJ were fully aware of the crimes committed:
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill. The FBI Uncovered Evidence that Russian Money Was Funneled to the Clinton Foundation
Who was the Director of the FBI at that time?
Who was Secretary of State when the State Department and the agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States sold the Canadian mining company, Uranium One, one-fifth of American’s uranium for Uranium One’s sale to Russia?
Who was an Obama administration official that joined Hillary Clinton on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States at the time the Uranium One deal was approved?
Regardless, in spite of nine separate shareholders of Uranium One donating more than $145 million to the Clinton Foundation BEFORE the transfer, Hillary Clinton denied any wrongdoing.
Guess who led the investigation into the Uranium One sale?
The investigation was ultimately supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, an Obama appointee who now serves as President Trump’s deputy attorney general, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, now the [former] deputy FBI director under Trump, Justice Department documents show.
Robert Mueller, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, and, yes, James Comey. These are the shadows of corruption we now face.
Quite familiar, isn’t it?
Indeed, the hits just keep on coming. No surprises. It all just repeats like a broken record; or Bill Murray’s character in the 1993 movie, “Groundhog Day”.
But to those in the Lamestream Media, the Groundhog Day Memo is a dud. It is nothing. It is, in fact, a nothing-burger:
Talk about collusion. The collective criminality and insanity of the political left and the mainstream media has reached epic proportions.
And the irony is striking.
We have a Hollywood movie now in theaters about the Washington Post’s noble fight to release the Pentagon Papers while, at the same time, that very newspaper has advocated against the release of information revealing illegal FISA spying on a presidential candidate, potentially, by a sitting president. It’s true, democracy dies in the darkness.
We recently witnessed Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein’s unilateral release of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson’s summer 2017 testimony. Yet, she is “stunned and dismayed” by the release of the Groundhog Day Memo.
Last week, the Lamestream Media was obsessing over Robert Mueller’s investigation of White House Communications Director, Hope Hicks, and her alleged obstruction of justice for burying non-existent emails between Donald Trump Jr. and the Russians. Yet, they never desired to address Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 lost emails, or the Uranium One scandal, did they?
It is obvious the Trump-haters are now in the process of doubling-down in their conspiracy to overturn his presidency.
They have seen their shadows and, like groundhogs, have returned into their dark holes in a vain attempt to survive the winter of this Fourth Turning’s discontent.
