Greatest Political Scandal In US History:Overstock CEO Turns Over ‘Russia Collaboration’ Docs To DOJ

When is a conspiracy theory not a conspiracy theory? OK, yes, when it turns out to be true, but also when it is manufactured ‘fake news’ aimed at manipulating public opinion.
One such conspiracy theory was that in 2016 the Trump campaign conspired with Russian oligarchs and government officials to steal the US presidential election from Hillary Clinton.

Not only has the whole story now been discredited, but it is becoming increasingly obvious that far from being the victim of a conspiracy, Hillary Clinton was a conspirator in a bid to fabricate evidence of high crimes and misdemeanours against Trump in order that he might be impeached and removed from office.

Overstock CEO Turned Over Docs To DOJ “In Greatest Political Scandal In US History”

Via SaraACarter.com,

Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne delivered to the Department of Justice a number of documents, including emails and text messages, in April, regarding both the origins of the Russian investigation, and an FBI operation into Hillary Clinton with which he was personally involved during the first months of 2016, according to a U.S. official who spoke SaraACarter.com.

Byrne has also confirmed the account.

Byrne claims the documents, which have not been made public and are currently under investigation by the DOJ, are allegedly communications he had with the FBI concerning both the Clinton investigation and the origins of the Russian investigation. SaraACarter.comdid not review the documents, which are now under review by law enforcement.

He approached the DOJ and met with lawyers on April 5th and 30th. The first meeting was without counsel in Washington D.C. A source directly familiar with the interviews confirmed Byrne’s account of the meetings.

DOJ officials said they could not comment on Byrne’s allegations.

“I gave to the DOJ documents concerning both the origin of the Russian probe and the probe into Hillary Clinton, both of which I was involved in, and both of which turned out to be less about law enforcement than they were about political espionage,” Byrne told SaraACarter.com Monday.

He noted that the communications will prove that the FBI also had an operation into Clinton Foundation that he was directly involved in.

“This is going to become the greatest political scandal in US history,” he said.

“If we survive it, and if Rule of Law returns to America, it will be due to one man: Bill Barr.”

Several weeks ago, FBI officials told SaraACarter.com that they declined to comment on Byrne’s allegations.

Byrne said the investigation into Clinton was one of the main reasons he came forward. This reporter first published Byrne’s story about his relationship with now convicted Russian gun right’s activist Maria Butina. She pleaded guilty in 2018 for failing to register as a foreign agent in the U.S. and is now serving out her sentence, which ends in October.

Byrne’s claims regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation are not without parallel. According to numerous officials the FBI had an ongoing investigation. Whistleblower and former government informant William Campbell was interviewed in 2018, by bureau agents from the Little Rock, Arkansa’s field office. According to Campbell, who first spoke to this reporter in 2017, he was asked by FBI agents whether donations to the Clintons charitable organization from Russia were used to influence U.S. nuclear policy during the Obama Administration. Specifically, he was asked about the sale of 20 percent of Uranium One.

As also reported in 2018, by John Solomon with The Hill, the “agents questioned him extensively about claims the Russians made to him that they had routed millions of dollars to an American lobbying firm in 2010 and 2011 with the expectation it would be used to help President Clinton’s charitable global initiative while major uranium decisions were pending before Hillary Clinton’s State Department.”

Byrne, told SaraACarter.com that the FBI was also investigating Clinton’s charitable organizations in the first half of 2016, and that he was directly involved in one of the operations being conducted by the FBI. He did not give details regarding the operation saying but said it directly dealt with Clinton and whether or not there was pay for play.

The Word Tells Trump And USA “You’re Fired”

via Zero Hedge

Some ironies are just too precious to pass by.

The 2016 US presidential elections gave us Donald Trump, a reality TV star whose famous tag line from his show “The Apprentice” was “You are fired!” Focus on this tag line; it is all that is important to this story. Some Trump Derangement Disorder sufferers might disagree. This is because they are laboring under certain misapprehensions: that the US is a democracy; or that it matters who is president. It isn’t and it doesn’t. By this point, the choice of president matters as much as the choice of conductor for the band that plays aboard a ship as it vanishes beneath the waves.

I have made these points continuously since before Trump got into office. Whether or not you think that Trump was actually elected, he did get in somehow, and there are reasons to believe that this had something to do with his wonderfully refreshing “You are fired!” tag line. It’s a fair guess that what motivated people to vote for him was their ardent wish that somebody would come along and fire all of the miscreants that infest Washington, DC and surrounding areas. Alas, that he couldn’t do. Figurehead leaders are never granted the authority to dismantle the political establishments that install them. But that is not to say that it can’t be done at all.

What happened instead was that the political establishment spent two years thrashing about in search of a reason to say “You are fired!” to Trump but has been unable to find one, and so Trump remains in office, although to say that he “remains in power” would be to invite sardonic laughter from anyone who knows what real political power smells like. Trump is but a prisoner in the White House, just like his predecessor was. Ironically, the quest for Trump’s impeachment has been fruitless as far as firing him, but most fruitful in terms of enhancing his ability to not only fire lots of establishment figures but perhaps even send them to jail—with the help of the Justice Department—and his character traits of extreme rancor, spitefulness and vindictiveness should be most conducive toward that end, making for a fun spectacle. His numerous enemies and detractors may yet look back wistfully on the halcyon days when they could lambaste him with impunity.

The quest to stop Trump started well before the election, with Obama and the Clintons collaborating on misusing federal resources to dig up dirt on Trump; specifically, evidence of “Russian collusion”… and they couldn’t find any. They did manage to find some “Russian meddling” (in the form of Facebook clickbait ads) but the evidence they dug up was too ridiculous to show in court. Too bad they didn’t look for Ukrainian collusion and meddling, or Israeli collusion and meddling, or Saudi collusion and meddling, because then they would have found plenty—enough to not only knock Hillary Clinton out of the running but also to lock her up … READ ALL >>>

Independent Study Says Google Influenced Midterm Elections, May Have Cost Republicans Seats: Study

If you’re one of those people who believed all that drivel about Russia interfering in American elections in 2016, this news may come as a shock to you.

It wasn’t The Russians as Hillary Clinton supporters, leading Democrats, Hollywood luvvies and most of mainsteam media have insisted, it was someone much closer to home.

New research reveals that Google built biases into its search results that influenced the 2018 midterm elections – possibly costing Republicans three congressional districts.

Anonymous claims to expose huge psyop in Europe and it’s funded by UK & US

Anonymous has published documents which it claims have unearthed a massive UK-led psyop to create a “large-scale information secret service” in Europe – all under the guise of countering “Russian propaganda.”

In a document dump on November 5, the group exposed the UK-based ‘Integrity Initiative’, said to have been established by the ominously titled Institute for Statecraft in 2015.

The main objective is “to provide a coordinated Western response to Russian disinformation and other elements of hybrid warfare.” The Institute for Statecraft is affiliated with the NATO HQ Public Diplomacy Division and the Home Office-funded ‘Prevent’ program, so objectivity is, of course, at the forefront of their work.

Integrity Initiative: A Look Into the Deep State?

Early in 2018 the name Andy Pryce began to circulate around the rumour mill. He had been making statements to the press about Russia, where he was described as ‘Head of Counter Disinformation and Media Development’ at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

I asked some former Foreign Office people I know if they had ever heard of a ‘counter disinformation’ team – they hadn’t. The earliest press reference I could find to him and his job was in September 2017, so this was apparently a relatively new role.

Also in September 2017, Pryce took part in an event called ‘DEMOCRACY AND PROPAGANDA: Can independent media defend universal values?’, held in the Hilton Hotel in London. This was organised jointly by the European Endowment for Democracy and the EU Eastern Partnership, which, it turns out, is an FCO programme that “works to counter and reduce the effect of destabilising disinformation”.

Pryce took part in the first round of Ukrainian-British interagency consultations on countering cyber threats held in London in March this year.

He took part in the 2018 EU DisinfoLab, in April.

In October he took part in the Atlantic Council’s Global Forum on Strategic Communications and Digital Disinformation event, held in Washington DC. Of note here is that this was a two day event. Andy Pryce’s contribution came on day two, which has not been made available on video.

To get to the bottom of what Andy Pryce is, and what he does, I decided Freedom of Information was probably the best approach. I asked about the scope of his role and the size of his team, and was both bemused and amused that the request for information was refused on the basis of ‘national security’: the Freedom of Information act says that national security can only be used as grounds for refusal where intelligence services are involved.

Nearly a year since the submission of that question, the FCO’s response is now under investigation by the Information Commissioner.

Top FBI Attorney Provided ‘Explosive’ Testimony Regarding Trump-Russia Probe

On a day that saw the latest nonsensical claims from the UK government about Russian government culpability for the Skripal assassination attempt back in March, we came across a story which shows how the other great “It’s The Russians fabricated narrative is falling apart.

While NATO governments were getting their knickers in a right old twist about the discovery of some Russian citizens found in possession of laptop computers, smartphones

The Russians are alleged to have launched a cyber attack on the headquarters of global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW while it was investigating the Salisbury spy poisoning, the British and Dutch security services have revealed. No evidence has been offered to link the action to the Skripal case.

Authorities in the Netherlands have named four GRU operatives who, it is claimed, travelled to Amsterdam and attempted to hack into the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons network directly.

The four men – named as Alexei Moronets, Evgeni Serebriakov, Oleg Sotnikov and Alexei Minin – flew from Moscow to Amsterdam on April 10 on official passports, where they were met by a Russian embassy official.

Three days later, they parked in a rental car outside a hotel near the OPCW building, with specialist technical equipment in the back of the vehicle designed to hack into the watchdog’s network.

If you are quite web savvy you might, as I have, understand how ludicrous it would be to try to hack the OPCW network while sitting outside in a car, with all your hacking equipment visible to passing pedestrians. And can we believe the Russians would expect an organisation like OPCW would have omitted to secure their Wi Fi network?

Well if you have believed all or any of the story about the Russians hacking the US election systems to hand the presidency to Trump, you are probably naive enough to believe this latest shite.

Meanwhile in America …

from The Daily Caller

A former top lawyer at the FBI provided “explosive” testimony to Congress on Wednesday regarding the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation, lawmakers said. James Baker, who served as the FBI’s general counsel until May, told Congress that a previously unidentified source provided information to the FBI for its investigation, which began on July 31, 2016.

“During the time that the FBI was putting — that [the Department of Justice] and FBI were putting together the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act surveillance warrant] during the time prior to the election — there was another source giving information directly to the FBI, which we found the source to be pretty explosive,” Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan said after a hearing, according to Fox News.

As the FBI’s top attorney, Baker was directly involved in handling applications for the FISA warrants granted against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Baker was interviewed behind closed doors as part of a congressional task force’s investigation into the FBI’s possible abuse of the FISA process. Republican lawmakers have expressed concerns that the Page FISAs relied heavily on the unverified Steele dossier.

The document, which was funded by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, was cited extensively in the FBI’s applications to spy on Page.

“Some of the things that were shared were explosive in nature,” North Carolina GOP Rep. Mark Meadows told Fox regarding Baker’s interview. “This witness confirmed that things were done in an abnormal fashion. That’s extremely troubling.”

A Profound Danger To The Dollar’s Reserve Status?

This blog and our larger sibling The Daly Stirrer have since 2012 been following moves in the international community, led by Russia and China to replace the US dollar as the global reserve currency, a status that has prevailed since 1974 when the USA concluded an agreement with Saudi Arabia, then totally dominant as the world’s largest oil producer, that all oil trades would be carried out in dollars – this was the birth of the petrodollar.

This agreement has since then given the USA a huge advantage over its trading partners, but the balance of power in the world has shifted with the break up of the Soviet Union, the liberalisation of China and the emergence of China as an economic power and of Russia as a major supplier of oil and gas.

Busted: Official Propaganda Photo Of Skripal Suspects Photoshopped.

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like (possums), but I have never bought into the official narrative surrounding the Skripal poisoning case in Salisbury earlier this year.
Six months down the line, after we had heard many ludicrous accusations from western politicians but not a single shred of credible evidence linking the poisoning to the Russian government had been produced, the case burst back into life as Teresa May, who in April said she had irrefutable evidence The Kremlin had ordered the botched assassination attempt.
When she was challenged it turned out her evidence was that she’d read it on the internet. Now, conveniently timed to whip up a bit of much needed Russophobia as the Russia / Syria / Iran alliance prepare to mop up resistance in Idlib, the last ISIS stronghold in Syria, Theresa May has suddenly produced a couple of suspects

With Trump threatening terrible retribution for another gas attack that has not yet taken place (but the US / NATO / EU sponsored Islamic extremist rebels told him Assad was preparing one and what more reliable evidence can you have than the word of a terrorist,) it looks as if the trigger happy Deep State lunatics are pushing for war again, well why not – it must be all of three months since Putin last made them back down.

The previous alleged gas attacks by Assad have been exposed by independent inspectors from the Orgamisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) as false flag incidents, and the latest and reportedly most serious yet was found by British reporter Robert Fisk to have been fake news. So naturally public opinion is not wildly enthusiastic about a shooting war with Russia, which would almost certainly bring China in on their side.

But as before, Prime Minister May’s suspects, produced with the aim of demonizing Russia to justify Britain’s joining a military intervention in Syria in support of a bunch of head amputating, sex slave owning, journalist burning savages is simply ridiculous. The two men in the pictures she produced could have been anybody, the picture of them in the street outside Sergei Skripal’s could have been anywhere and was definitely photoshopped as I will show you in a moment.

And while the interview with the suspects was risible as both men gave the impression they were third rate actors who had been given too little time to learn their lines, we must not forget no real evidence of their involvement has been produced. My overall impression on seeing the interview was that Putin was taking the piss.

skripal-suspects

Look at this picture (Used by The Guardian, Express, BBC and Yahoo News,) of the alleged poisoners, who according to British intelligence services managed to contaminate their hotel room and half of Salisbury with the highly potent nerve agent used in the assassination attempt, but did not suffer any ill effects and failed to kill their targets. Do you see a white halo around their bodies. This is not an indication that they had divine protection, but that their images were either pasted or cloned rather amateurishly into a shot of an unidentifiable street.
