FBI lied Contrary to testimony they knew the Steele dossier was fake BEFORE using it to get FISA war

The “evidence” used by the FBI to secure FISA warrants on Trump adviser Carter Page was known to be suspiciously inaccurate 10 days before procuring the warrants, but the FBI used them anyway. In fact, the FBI swore before the FISA judge that the information had been corroborated when it clearly had not.

Information had been given to the FBI demonstrating the motivations behind the Steele Dossier were clearly political and prompted by the Clinton campaign. They knew this going in, but without actual evidence to back their FISA request, they ran with the false story in hopes it would yield fruit. When it didn’t, they quickly began covering up their activities and tried to justify the warrants with evidence collected after the fact, evidence that itself was tainted.

According to John Solomon at The Hill:

The concerns were flagged in a typed memo and in handwritten notes taken by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11, 2016.

Her observations were recorded exactly 10 days before the FBI used Steele and his infamous dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s contacts with Russia in search of a now debunked collusion theory.

It is important to note that the FBI swore on Oct. 21, 2016, to the FISA judges that Steele’s “reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings” and the FBI has determined him to be “reliable” and was “unaware of any derogatory information pertaining” to their informant, who simultaneously worked for Fusion GPS, the firm paid by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Clinton campaign to find Russian dirt on Trump.

Bottom Line

The FBI clearly knew the Steele Dossier was a fabricated political attack commissioned by the Clinton campaign, yet swore before the FISA judge that it was accurate and corroborated. It’s time to investigate the investigators now.

Conspiracy Theory

Evidence that Ilhan Omar married her brother

Evidence that Ilhan Omar married her brother

The story from Ilhan Omar’s camp is that any insinuation that she married her brother to help him become an American citizen should be relegated to fake news and right-wing bloggers. But as we detailed last month, even the newspaper that endorsed her is starting to ask questions.

Mainstream media will start picking up on the story more, though it’s unlikely any of them will reveal the information they find unless it’s conclusive. When dealing with conservatives, mainstream media tends to run with any accusation regardless of credibility as long as a scandal is involved. When the subject is a progressive, media outlets only reveal the truth when they’re absolutely sure there’s no way around it and the cat is already being let out of the bag. Otherwise, they sit on it.

But as the President calls attention to it, the media will have to at least check on it. Most will still dismiss it as a right-wing conspiracy theory, but those willing to do their jobs properly will find the evidence is at least worthy of further investigation. Even in bits and pieces, it’s very damaging. A new video by Alpha News MN details an opening round of evidence that should be worth a watch. There is more to come next week.

It seems it isn’t a matter of “if” but “when” Ilhan Omar’s history catches up to her in the public eye. In that scenario, how will the “Squad” member react? She’s thought about it. Others likely have as well. Will she ever tell the truth?

18th century firearm technology, 21st century lies

18th century firearm technology 21st century lies

Repeating and semiautomatic firearms existed long before the recent phenomena of school shootings

One of the Liberty Grabber Left’s favorite lies is to claim that repeating or semiautomatic firearms are the cause of mass murder tragedies because they only recently came into existence. Hence the line ‘21st Century laws for 21st Century weapons’ line of Bovine excreta parroted by the Marx for our lives Astroturf effort.

This is a continuation of our ‘Conversation’ on guns in honor of Gun Pride Month and AR-15 Appreciation Week. In the usual circumstances, this ‘conversation’ consists of accusations of collective guilt of more than 120 million innocent gun owners with a lecture that we should be glad to give up more of our Liberty. All of this is predicated on outright lies such as that previously referenced.

The problem for gun confiscation brigades is that – as is typical – this often repeated lie fails to match up with reality. We’ve already proven that there were many ‘assault weapons’ technologies that existed long before the 21st Century and Long before the writing of the US Constitution.

Firearm technologies didn’t start in the 21st Century.

Perhaps Leftists fail to realize that weapons technology has always been on the cutting edge [pardon the pun]. They also fail to realize that small arms are usually mass-produced, very durable and extremely valuable antiques. This means that many examples of these weapons in reside in museum and other collections with patent numbers and other indicia that prove their lineage.

This means that there are many examples of these Pre-Constitutional Assault weapons as well as patents and other forms of documentation that eviscerated the ‘They only had single shot muskets at the time of the Constitution’ lie from the Liberty Grabber Left. The fact that many of these technologies existed long before the time of the founding fathers destroys that mythology.

The ‘Cambrian explosion’ in assault weapons technology of the 19th Century.

The development of self-contained cartridge ammunition changed the world with the assault weapons of the 1800s. Cartridge ammunition combined the essential elements of propellant, projectile and primer [ignition] into one unit, that could be easily loaded into the breech of a gun. From that point on, it was just a matter of working a lever or bolt to load and fire a cartridge. Thus it was this point in time mid 19th Century that someone could quickly load and fire a number of rounds.

This innovation also vastly improved the revolver, repeating firearm technology that had already been around for centuries, resulting in the famed ‘six-shooter’ seen in every western. Easily loaded and carried, a couple of these guns could have made for a deadly mass shooting during the early 1800’s.

The fact is these early ‘Assault Weapons’ were around 170 years ago and over a century before the school shooting phenomena. Proving the point that these mass murder tragedies were not caused by the presence of repeating firearms.

The 19th Century development of semi-automatic technologies.

Later on in the same century, it was discovered that the excess chemical energy from the combustion of the propellant in a cartridge could be used to unlock the bolt, eject a spent casing and load a fresh round. This semi-automatic process made it far easier to use a firearm, with the working skills built into the weapon. This is why these are in common use, and wildly popular with the more than 120 million gun owners in the country. It is also the reason these very reliable and easy to use firearms are the prime target of the Liberty Grabbers.

The Borchardt C-93 was the first commercially viable semi-automatic firearm produced in 1893. For those counting up the Leftist Lies, this still wasn’t the 21st Century. Please take note that these are the types of weapons used in school shootings and were on the scene 70 years before these became a phenomena. Not to belabor the point, but this also proves that guns aren’t a factor in recent occurrence of these tragic events.

Other weapons and mechanism were developed at this time to the point that the technology was relatively mature at the turn of the Century [This would be the 20th Century – still not the 21st Century]. To the point that any miscreant of recent times could have replicated one of their crimes over 100 years ago – but did not.

The steep rise in school shooting in the 1980’s and 1990’s

Dennis Prager recently discussed this issue in a “Fireside chat” and a column: Why So Many Mass Shootings? Ask The Right Questions And You Might Find Out.

America had plenty of guns when its mass murder rate was much lower. Grant Duwe, a Ph.D. in criminology and director of research and evaluation at the Minnesota Department of Corrections, gathered data going back 100 years in his 2007 book, “Mass Murder in the United States: A History.”

In the 20th century, every decade before the 1970s had fewer than 10 mass public shootings. In the 1950s, for example, there was one mass shooting. And then a steep rise began. In the 1960s, there were six mass shootings. In the 1970s, the number rose to 13. In the 1980s, the number increased 2 1/2 times, to 32. And it rose again in the 1990s, to 42. As for this century, The New York Times reported in 2014 that, according to the FBI, “Mass shootings have risen drastically in the past half-dozen years.”

The Takeaway

Repeating and semiautomatic firearms have been around for Centuries, mass shootings are only a recent phenomena of the past 40 years. A phenomena that has been on the decrease as of late: Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be.

Guns aren’t the problem, they have been around for over 500 years. If they were the problem, why didn’t these take place 300, 200, or 100 years ago? It wasn’t the sudden appearance of guns at the onset of these tragedies soon after the sixties, then what was it? In his column, Dennis Prager had some thoughts. We will explore that issue in a later column.

Democrats have no answer for the rise of MS-13. In fact, they’re helping them.

Democrats have no answer for the rise of MS-13 In fact theyre helping them

The left and right can debate all day about sovereignty, how to handle asylum cases, and whether or not to build a wall on the southern border. But there should be no debate about whether, the notorious gang that runs much of Central America and is building a similar empire in the United states, should be allowed to continue their reign of terror. In fact, there is no debate about it at all right now as Democrats are unwilling to talk about it.

Why? Because they have no answers to stopping them and their proposed policies for handling the migrant surge invariably work towards helping MS-13 continue to infiltrate our nation.

The latest heinous act getting attention has gang members accused of beheading and dismembering rival gang members in the United States, among other hideous crimes. And yet when the President referred to them as “animals,” Democrats and much of the media tried to insinuate the President was referring to all immigrants. They kept this lie up for months after it was debunked. They’re still repeating it today.

Here’s who the President called “animals”:

While Democrats focus on the “concentration camps” and push for instant release of the hundreds of thousands of migrants crossing the border illegally and straining CBP, criminals like MS-13 gang members are sneaking in. The southern border is extremely porous and border patrol resources are being wasted on the migrant surge. While border patrol officers are stuck handing out diapers and completing paperwork for migrants, the “animals” are making their way across the border undetected.

But it isn’t just Democrats on Capitol Hill. Activist judges have thwarted literally every attempt by President Trump to deter illegal immigration and dissuade migrants from making the dangerous journey in the first place. They perform judicial gymnastics to find reasons why the President is not allowed to do what it takes to secure our borders. Meanwhile, these activist judges are complicit in the death and destruction they cause by assisting MS-13 in their gang activities.

Instead of coming to their senses, the Democrats are doubling down. Elizabeth Warren released her open borders plan, and we can expect the rest of the field to follow suit. They have literally no solution for the criminal infestation crossing the southern border. But that’s not stopping them from attempting to make the border even less secure. In 2020, remember these gang members. Remember their victims and the horrible way they died. Remember every American citizen killed by MS-13. Most importantly, remember which party has every intention of making the problem worse if they’re given the power to do so.

Every MS-13 robbery, rape, and murder is a direct result of Democratic lawmakers and activist judges preventing the President from doing his job to secure the borders. Ask them for solutions and all they can do is change the subject.
