Official Washington is abuzz, comparing President Trump’s ouster of FBI Director Comey to President Nixon’s Watergate cover-up, but there is a darker “deep state” interpretation of these events, says Robert Parry. Continue reading Watergate Redux or ‘Deep State’ Coup? | Consortiumnews
The Trumpian crowd just got a new shot of hope when their idol decided to fire the two-faced FBI Director James Comey from office. This must be the resumption of the draining of the swamp. Empirical data says otherwise, of course.
Just like the flip-flopping of the “Change We Can Believe in” of the Obama administration, the “Draining of the Swamp” mantra must be refreshed with earth shattering headliners from the White House from time to time.
Here are two proofs out of many why this may not be what we are all hoping for:
- Terminated Comey’s interim replacement, has deep ties with the Clinton couple, and;
- AG Sessions may be in it only for his own family’s satisfaction.
Interim FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s wife is a stooge for the Clintons.
WASHINGTON: Andrew McCabe became the acting director of the FBI on Tuesday when President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed McCabe’s promotion in an internal memo to the FBI. CNN obtained the document.
McCabe’s wife, Jill, ran for state Senate in Northern Virginia as a Democrat. She lost her election bid. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who is close to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave McCabe’s campaign $467,500 from his political action committee. The Virginia Democratic Party also donated $207,788 to McCabe’s campaign, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Those ties led the FBI to issue a statement in October on Andrew McCabe’s ties to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server. In a statement to the Wall Street Journal, the FBI said McCabe “played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind (for his wife’s campaign).”
The Trump campaign released a statement on “Clinton ally aiding wife of top FBI official,” but the website page is now longer available.
So, the FBI just moved from a double crossing Comey to a full pledged Clinton errand boy. But who knows?
Strategist Trump could certainly use McCabe’s extensive knowledge about the Clinton’s false philanthropy and pedophiliac adventures to pin the latter down.
That’s how you should feed your own false hope to keep you going and survive the day. Recall, not too long ago…
To which direction are we really going to?
What about AG Sessions? What’s in it for him when recommended the termination of Comey’s services?
He might have an axe to grind with the Clintons…
DEFIANT F.B.I. CHIEF REMOVED FROM JOB BY THE PRESIDENT
By David Johnston, July 20, 1993
WASHINGTON, July 19— President Clinton today dismissed William S. Sessions, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who had stubbornly rejected an Administration ultimatum to resign six months after a harsh internal ethics report on his conduct.
Mr. Clinton said he would announce his nominee to replace Mr. Sessions on Tuesday. He was expected to pick Judge Louis J. Freeh of Federal District Court in Manhattan; officials said Judge Freeh had impressed Mr. Clinton favorably on Friday at their first meeting.
Mr. Clinton, explaining his reasons for removing Mr. Sessions, effective immediately, said, “We cannot have a leadership vacuum at an agency as important to the United States as the F.B.I. It is time that this difficult chapter in the agency’s history is brought to a close.” Defiant to the End
But in a parting news conference at F.B.I. headquarters after Mr. Clinton’s announcement, a defiant Mr. Sessions — his right arm in a sling as a result of a weekend fall — railed at what he called the unfairness of his removal, which comes nearly six years into his 10-year term.
“Because of the scurrilous attacks on me and my wife of 42 years, it has been decided by others that I can no longer be as forceful as I need to be in leading the F.B.I. and carrying out my responsibilities to the bureau and the nation,” he said. “It is because I believe in the principle of an independent F.B.I. that I have refused to voluntarily resign.”
Mr. Clinton said that after reviewing Mr. Sessions’s performance, Attorney General Janet Reno had advised him that Mr. Sessions should go. “After a thorough review by the Attorney General of Mr. Sessions’s leadership of the F.B.I., she has reported to me in no uncertain terms that he can no longer effectively lead the bureau.”
Are the two Sessions related by blood?
We can only find their commonality in the Republican Party, and their close physical resemblance, for now.
So, instead of looking just who are not happy with the Trump decision to fire the FBI director Comey, let’s look instead on how AG Sessions will proceed from hereon.
Will he file cases against the Clintons, and those who are deeply submerged in the Deep Swamp?
Meanwhile, and away from the headlines, more troops will be sent to the fertile opium fields of Afghanistan,
… while Trump’s close-in adviser, son-in-law Jared Kushner, is busy raising funds for the First Family’s development projects.
Kushner Family Tells Rich Chinese: Invest $500,000 and Immigrate to the United States
by EconMatters May 9, 2017 7:41 PM
Washington Post journalists attended the last Saturday presentation at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Beijing saw and heard the pitch to the rich Chinese — They could obtain EB-5 investor visas to the U.S. if they invested at least $500,000 into one of the Kushner family’s development projects.
The presentation was reportedly delivered by Nicole Kushner Meyer, sister of Jared Kushner. As you know, Jared Kushner is the presidential adviser and son-in-law, husband of Ivana Trump.
Now what is EB-5 visa exactly? Wikipedia explains that the EB-5 visa provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who can invest from $500,000 to one million dollars in a “new commercial enterprise” in the United States. The program has been criticized as akin to “U.S. citizenship for sale,” and it has come under scrutiny after a series of fraud and scandals.
According to the Post, the tagline on a brochure for the event:
“Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”
The New York Times reported that during the presentation, there was a slide describing Donald Trump as a “key decision maker” about the future of the EB-5 program. So the potential investors were then advised to “invest sooner rather than later in case visa rules change under the Trump administration.”
“Invest early, and you will invest under the old rules,” one speaker said.
Of course, the old rules still apply.
So, look over there, ’cause we’re so busy right here.
The Trump government will surely attempt to bring back some of the jobs that America lost in the last 4 decades, but for a lower pay when compared decades ago, or they’ll stay in Asia indefinitely.
But the Corporatocracy will live on with the two-party system, they’ve played the game so skillfully, and the Sheeplehood will stay as docile as it is. Why?
They just don’t care at all.
No offense intended, but if that’s how deep the majority of the Americans are capable of using their cognitive abilities, they’ll always be an easy prey to the mind control experts like the Chatham House.
We still want to be convinced that our skepticism is grossly unfounded.
Now, it can be made clear as to why the FBI Director James Comey had been flip-flopping with his statements regarding the Clintons’ slew of high crimes, i.e. he has multiple conflicts of interest when it comes to investigating the affairs of the latter and the Deep State, at large.
