Torture-Tainted CIA and State Nominees Recall Failure to Prosecute Bush-Era Abuses

President Donald Trump’s nominations of Gina Haspel to lead the CIA and Mike Pompeo to be America’s top diplomat are the latest indications of steadily eroding human rights standards in the United States and the rollback of the rule of law that has characterized U.S. counterterrorism policies since Sept. 11, 2001.

Haspel, a CIA operative who oversaw the torture of terrorism suspects at a secret prison in Thailand and then helped destroy tapes of the interrogations, and Pompeo, who has made statements in support of torture and mass surveillance, are both expected to be confirmed by the Senate with little fanfare.

After all, when Pompeo was nominated for his current post of CIA Director his confirmation sailed through the Senate on a vote of 66-32. This, despite what Human Rights Watch’s Maria McFarland Sanchez-Moreno called “dangerously ambiguous” responses to questions about torture and mass surveillance.

“Pompeo’s failure to unequivocally disavow torture and mass surveillance, coupled with his record of advocacy for surveillance of Americans and past endorsement of the shuttered CIA torture program, make clear that he should not be running the CIA,” Sanchez Moreno said in January 2017.

Shortly following Pompeo’s confirmation, his deputy director at the CIA was named as Gina Haspel, who “played a direct role in the CIA’s ‘extraordinary rendition program,’ under which captured militants were handed to foreign governments and held at secret facilities, where they were tortured by agency personnel,” the New York Times reported last year.

Left WORRIED that Senate hearing on Parkland school shooting will NOT focus on NRA and instead on FBI, law enforcement

Pointing Fingers: Liberal news outlets are voicing concern that a Senate hearing focusing on events that led to the recent shootings at a Parkland, Fla., high school will focus more on failures of local law enforcement and the FBI rather than the nation’s foremost gun-rights group, the NRA.

“A Push for Gun Control Legislation Appears Dead in Congress. Again,” the Left-leaning Daily Beast news site reported.

“Meaningful reform on guns or “school safety” appears to be nearing a quiet death, just weeks after demands for action peaked following the Parkland shooting,” the web site noted.

“Sources on Capitol Hill now universally say they do not expect legislation—even the narrowed down variety—to pass, while senior officials at the White House appear committed to spotlighting the influence they suggest violent video games are having on our nation’s youth.”

The site noted further:

Are The Social Media Giants Trying To Steal The 2018 Elections By Censoring Conservative Websites?

Nobody is disputing the fact that YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media giants are censoring conservative material.  In fact, this is probably the largest purge of conservative voices in the history of the Internet.  Obviously this is going to cause large numbers of people to stop using their platforms, so why would they do this?  Well, to some conservatives the answer is obvious.  These social media giants watched Donald Trump use their platforms extremely effectively in 2016, and many believe that they are absolutely determined to never let that happen again.  In fact, Mike Adams of Natural News is completely convinced that there is a concerted effort by these social media giants to steal the 2018 elections…

The realization is suddenly obvious: The Google / YouTube selective “censorship rampage” that has targeted conservative websites and content creators is a brazen, illegal scheme to interfere with U.S. elections and steal the 2018 mid-terms.

The systematic silencing of conservative views is necessary, of course, for Democrats to win enough seats to gain control of the U.S. House of Representatives after the mid-term elections. Once control is established, Democrats will immediately move to impeach President Trump. Although the Senate would not likely prosecute that impeachment, the mere achievement of the U.S. House declaring “impeachment” would be enough to convince most brainwashed news consumers that Trump is somehow a guilty criminal (nobody will remember that Bill Clinton was also impeached by the House). From there, the 2020 presidential election is also stolen, and Democrats land their selected tyrant in the White House just in time for Ginsberg’s retirement from SCOTUS.

If voices on the left were being censored to the same degree as conservative voices, it would be really hard to make such an argument.

But the truth is that the numbers show that conservative voices are being hit extremely hard by the censorship while liberal publishers have been mostly “unaffected”…

Netanyahu, Trump discuss war preparations against Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s five-day trip to the US has been dominated by a growing drumbeat for war against Iran, a regional struggle that would eclipse the immense carnage wrought by the past 15 years of uninterrupted US military intervention in the Middle East.

Netanyahu’s meeting with US President Donald Trump Monday was followed Tuesday by his appearance before the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the principal US Zionist lobby, in Washington. There, he proclaimed before a cheering audience that “Iran, Iran and Iran was the main topic of the meeting.”

The Israeli prime minister spoke in apocalyptic terms of Iran’s growing influence in the Middle East, declaring “darkness is descending on our region” and pointing to a map in which countries that he alleged Iran was dominating were painted black.

“Iran is building an aggressive empire: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Gaza, Yemen, more to come,” he continued.

He went on to praise Trump for adopting a policy of provocation and aggression against Iran, declaring that “his administration will not accept Iran’s aggression in the region” and “will never accept a nuclear-armed Iran.”

Massive outpouring of support for the Health Ranger after outrageous YouTube censorship of entire channel, wiping 1700+ videos spanning 10+ years

As we reported over the weekend, YouTube terminated the entire Health Ranger video channel on Saturday, wiping out over 1,700 videos and approximately 350K+ subscribers. This was done, of course, as part of the YouTube left-wing PURGE now being carried out against non-establishment speakers who are being targeted for political reasons.

YouTube’s censorship rampage also wiped out all my videos on the donkeys I rescued, the range-free chickens I raise and even the beautiful ice crystals I captured on video over the winter. In its censorship sweep, YouTube is obliterating thousands of videos without cause, violating the civil rights of informative internet users and functioning as a criminal techno-cartel.

My channel wasn’t alone in this, of course. YouTube’s censorship rampage has targeted thousands of other indy media channels over the last two weeks, issuing strikes against content that was uploaded many years ago (and is just now being flagged by ridiculously biased left-wing “trusted flaggers” such as the outrageously biased SPLC group). RightSide Broadcasting’s live event has also been blocked by YouTube, reports The Gateway Pundit.

It’s not about cracking down on so-called “conspiracy theories,” either. YouTube just announced it’s sponsoring a left-wing video creator who says the 9/11 terrorists attacks were an “inside job” — almost identical language to what InfoWars uses, but of course InfoWars gets selectively targeted for banning.

CONFIRMED: Algorithm Change Causes POTUS Trump’s Facebook Traffic to Plummet 45% – Sanders, Warren Traffic UNCHANGED!

(In 2016 Facebook traffic accounted for roughly one-third of our TGP traffic. Today, although our traffic continues to grow our Facebook traffic continues to decline.)

According to a stunning report by Breitbart Tech’s Allum Bokhari, the decline in engagement on Trump’s Facebook cannot be attributed to a drop in posting frequency on the part of Trump.

via Breitbart Tech

“In the 13 days prior to Facebook’s algorithm change (28 Dec – 10 Jan), Trump made 67 posts, with no significant drop in engagement. After the change, Trump posted at roughly the same rate – between 59 and 67 posts in each 13-day period, but was still met with the dramatic decline in engagement seen above,” Breitbart reports.

The changes in the algorithm came following extreme pressure on the platform from Democrats who blame social media for Hillary Clinton’s election loss.

“You’ve created these platforms, and now they’re being misused, and you have to be the ones to do something about it … or we will,” Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein threatened Facebook prior to their changes.

In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement, reports Bokhari.

With Global Government 'Conspiracy Theory' Proven True, World Government Summit Says 'Future Plans Do Not Include America'

Over the past several decades, the American taxpayer has been providing billions of dollars funding globalists projects around the world such as building and refurbishing mosques, providing for the defense of nations and helping resettle immigrants who might not have America's best interests in mind into America. Yet as we read in this recent story from WND, the world has given America it's cowardly middle finger in repayment for our kindness and generosity over the past 40+ years.

While the American taxpayer has gotten more in debt to the tune of 20 trillion dollars with that number growing every day, even far-left Vox reports a group of global elites recently met in Dubai to discuss the future of the world, and: "Their plans didn't include America". 

While not outright confirmation of Deagel's forecast of only 54 million living here in 2025, as the New American recently reported, that "creepy world government summit" not only targeted America but freedom as well with top globalists, communists, and Islamists from all over the planet gathered for the appropriately called: World Government Summit.

And while over the past several decades, tens of millions of Americans were called 'conspiracy theorists' and labeled as 'crazy' by society as a whole and specifically the mainstream media for simply suggesting that such a thing as a 'world government' or a 'New World Order' existed, part of the agenda for this meeting was to push for what they themselves called a “new world order.”

U.S. propaganda cites NATO’s PR agency’s confirmation that “evidence is overwhelming” Russia manipulated U.S. Elections

“There’s no possible way you can say that [Russia’s manipulation of the 2016 U.S. elections] didn’t happen,” says Ben Nimmon, of the Atlantic Council, which was set up by the U.S. Government in 1961 during the Cold War, to encourage increased military spending in U.S.-allied countries. The video, with Nimmon saying this, appears in the U.S. Government’s Voice of America’s February 19th article “Israel, Iran Clash Over Nuclear Threat at Munich Conference”, which opens by saying, “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has claimed that Iran is just years away from having a nuclear bomb.” This article presents the former U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, on the defensive, against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s extensive statements there, for an invasion soon against Iran. Kerry negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran that U.S. President Donald Trump says the U.S. won’t honor.

On February 22nd, an article was headlined “Israel and Iran: Inching Toward Conflict”, by Peter Korzun, at the website of Strategic Culture Foundation, which favors Russia against NATO, and which article presents considerable evidence that Israel plans soon to invade Iran, and to use the airspace of “Sunni-dominated Arab states” (the U.S. Government’s other allies against Iran) in order to do it, or else to use Iraq’s airspace: Korzun wrote, “Iraq is not focused on monitoring its airspace — it has many other problems to deal with, and Israel could take advantage of that. The route through Iraq looks like it might be the best option.”

Israel, which receives $3.8 billion per year from the U.S. Government to buy U.S.-made weapons, is seeking the U.S. Government’s okay to use them for an invasion of Iran, which America’s fundamentalist-Sunni ally the Saud family also want to destroy. U.S. President Donald Trump, whose biggest financial backer in 2016 was the pro-Israel extremist Sheldon Adelson, who is a billionaire casino-operator, would need first to approve the invasion; and, presumably, President Trump would now be seeking support from the members of Congress, and from the news-media, in order to pave the way for that authorization.

Consequently, in U.S. propaganda, there appears to be a close link between the U.S. Government’s hostile intentions against Russia, and the U.S. Government’s hostile intentions against Iran. Donald Trump, and the U.S. Congress, already seem likely to allow the Israeli Government’s request, and the Voice of America’s article can be seen as being part of the effort to gain the world’s support for such an invasion to occur. Such an invasion would be a boost to the stock-values of American weapons-manufacturers: already, for example, the stock price of Boeing has nearly tripled since 2016, and any invasion by a U.S. ally can only keep the momentum going, for continued growth in the U.S. economy. In this light, the $3.8 billion-per-year donation from America’s taxpayers to Israel’s Government can reasonably be viewed as a U.S. Government investment in continuation of growth in U.S. stock prices, which measures seem to be the main driver behind U.S. international relations.

Former CIA Director James Woolsey Admits CIA Interferes In Foreign Elections For A “Very Good Cause”

According to WikiLeaks, the U.S. government’s own data shows that its deep state in the CIA and the military-industrial complex has meddled in the elections of a whopping 81 foreign governments between 1946 and 2000, including Russia in the 1990s. That’s no laughing matter and frankly worrying.

Perhaps unshockingly those numbers don’t even include the regime change operations the U.S. has conducted and attempted across the world for the past decade which includes but is not limited to Iran, Guatemala, Congo, Dominican Republic, South Vietnam, Brazil, Chile, Syria.

Chillingly, a massive 72 of those were between 1947 and 1989, including 66 covert operations and six overt missions according to the Washington Post.

So enough about CIA coups and regime change, who is James Woolsey the agency’s former director?

Woolsey didn’t state exactly what the “very good cause” was for interfering in other countries’ democratic electoral process, or if it’s the same “good cause” of manipulating the American people under Operation Mockingbird and other foreign states for geopolitical conquest done by his predecessors.

There Is No Justice in Our World

A gathering of rich oil Arabs pledged $30 billion this week at a meeting in Kuwait to start rebuilding war-shattered Iraq.  Sounds nice but these kinds of conclaves are notorious for offering big but delivering little.

The event was billed as helping Iraq repair war damage caused by ISIS.  In fact, most of the damage from that short-lived conflict was caused by US bombing and a few Russian air strikes.   ISIS, as this column has long been crying in the wilderness, was largely a paper tiger confected by the US, Britain and France to justify their military re-entry into Syria.

Iraq’s government says it needs at least $88 billion to rebuild war damage.  What the US-imposed client regime in Baghdad won’t or can’t say is that the damage to Iraq is far greater than $88 billion and was largely inflicted by US air power in 1990-1991 and 2003.

Iraq was ravaged, as I saw myself while covering the wars.  This small nation of 23-25 million souls, a third of whom were in permanent revolt against the Baghdad government, was pounded into rubble by US air power and cruise missiles.  First in 1990-1991, then in 2003, everything of value was blown to bits:  hospitals, schools, food factories, chemical plants making insecticide, bridges, and communications.  In short, all the attributes of a modern state.

Most shocking to me, was the destruction of Iraq’s water and sewage treatment plants by US air strikes.

Is John Brennan the Mastermind Behind Russiagate?

The report (“The Dossier”) that claims that Donald Trump colluded with Russia, was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The company that claims that Russia hacked DNC computer servers, was paid by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The FBI’s counterintelligence probe into Trump’s alleged connections to Russia was launched on the basis of information gathered from a report that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The surveillance of a Trump campaign member (Carter Page) was approved by a FISA court on the basis of information from a report that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The Intelligence Community Analysis or ICA was (largely or partially) based on information from a report that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign. (more on this below)

The information that was leaked to the media alleging Russia hacking or collusion can be traced back to claims that were made in a report that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The entire Russia-gate investigation rests on the “unverified and salacious” information from a dossier that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton Campaign. Here’s how Stephen Cohen sums it up in a recent article at The Nation:

The Washington Post’s Shoddy Defense of the Russiagate Investigation

An editorial in the February 2nd Washington Post headlined “The Nunes memo shows the opposite of what Trump hoped it would prove”, and its first argument was that “the memo reveals that there were preexisting [i.e., prior to the FBI’s investigation into the DNC’s infamous Steele dossier, which even Steele himself acknowledged was probably 10% to 30% false] grounds to investigate, based on information about a different Trump associate. So the president cannot construe this memo as offering evidence that the Russia probe began corruptly.”

However, the Nunes Memo wasn’t alleging “that the Russia probe began corruptly.” It instead argued that when the FBI’s follow-on investigation reached the point where they would need permission from the FISA (or “FISC”) court in order to obtain evidence that might possibly implicate U.S. President Trump in impeachable offenses, the FBI resorted to an ilegal tactic to win the court’s okay: hiding crucial material information from the FISA court. That’s the case the Nunes Memo actually summarizes.

The FBI began its investigation into the Steele dossier after it had already begun its investigation — based upon then-credible grounds to investigate — regarding George Papadopoulos (a supporter of Trump and aspirant for a position in his Administration if Trump would win).

There is no question that the initial FBI investigation began in July 2016 and had nothing to do with the Steele dossier; this is acknowledged even by National Review, a Republican publication that seeks Trump’s impeachment and replacement by Mike Pence. NR notes that, “The investigation isn’t the fruit of the poisonous dossier (though the dossier did play a role); it existed before the dossier.” But the Nunes Memo doesn’t deny this, either.

None Dare Call It Treason: Pelosi’s Democrats Are Simply A Post-American Party

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi may occasionally forget who the current president is, but she just roused herself for an eight hours long speech about the need to give Amnesty to illegals. Her celebration reveals the terrible truth about the Democrat Party: it can no longer be called an “American” political grouping in any meaning sense—it’s simply a vast pressure group that wants demographically to overwhelm and economically to plunder the Historic American Nation. But the Democrats’ frankly anti-American stance does not necessarily translate to electoral defeat—especially if the GOP won’t call treason out for what it is.

Pelosi’s speech even put some members of her own party to sleep. [ WATCH: Dem Congresswoman Dozes Off During Nancy Pelosi’s 8-Hour DACA Speech , Fox News, February 8, 2017] Still, while Pelosi is no orator, her extremism was dramatic— including her perverted self-hating boasting about her brainwashed grandson wishing for brown skin because it’s the “future of our country” [Pelosi: My Grandson’s Birthday Wish Was To Have Brown Skin, Brown Eyes; “Face Of The Future Of Our Country,” RealClearPolitics, February 7, 2018].

Pelosi’s arrogance is not surprising considering her own post-American state of California. The GOP been rendered utterly irrelevant there. The top three candidates in the state’s 2018 gubernatorial “jungle primary” are all Democrats [Poll: California governor’s race a toss-up, by Carla Marinucci, Politico, February 8, 2018]. Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who in college headed a chapter of the frankly revanchist group MEChA, is now within two points of being the favorite of America’s largest state. Far-Left candidates are poised to triumph throughout the state and the Republican Congressmen who are hanging in conservative districts are being targeted by a national Leftist effort [Think California politics is on the far-left fringe? Just wait for the next elections. By Scott Wilson, Washington Post, February 3, 2018].

Or consider the Democrats’ second-in-command, Congressman Keith Ellison. Fresh from endorsing Antifa’s physical attacks on conservatives, he’s receiving typical adoring Main Stream Media coverage for taking the bold stand of associating President Trump with “white supremacy” for even considering enforcing immigration laws [Rep. Keith Ellison at rally denouncing Trump as white supremacist: ‘Justice for all…. Whether you’re born here or not, by Penny Starr, Breitbart, February 7, 2018]. Ellison is a black nationalist in the literal sense—meaning that he has actually advocated carving out a section of American territory specifically for blacks.

“Somebody’s Going To Have To Go To Prison”: Ex-U.S. Attny Says Memo 2.0 Confirms Obama State Dept. Official Helped Feed FBI False Info

In an interview with Laura Ingraham Tuesday evening, former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova said he believes the Grassley-Graham letter — memo 2.0 — confirms Obama State Department officials helped feed the FBI false information through dossier author Christopher Steele.

Such information was then used by the FBI to obtain FISA warrants to surveil the Trump campaign. 

Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova: "Now we know that additional Clinton allies…were involved in the transmission of false information, unverified information to the @FBI through State Department officials. Somebody's going to have to go to prison." 

DiGenova: The Grassley-Graham memo establishes beyond any doubt that the FBI knowingly deceived the FISA court about the information it was presenting to them, lied to them about the fact that it was verified information, which it was not — which the law requires. And now we know that additional Clinton allies, including Sidney Blumenthal, were involved in the transmission of false information, unverified information to the FBI through State Department officials. Somebody’s going to have to go to prison.”

On Tuesday, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a “much-less redacted,” version of this week’s criminal referral — also known as memo 2.0 — of former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

TRUMP WAS RIGHT! FISA Warrant Allowed FBI to Spy on Carter Page And ALL OF TRUMP CAMPAIGN

Today we know that the FBI was investigating the Trump Tower servers during the election.

We also know Susan Rice lied at first but then admitted when she got caught that she was unmasking her political opponents’ phone calls. Rice blamed racism after she got caught.

Ex-officials said what Susan Rice’s unmasking requests were not routine and “never done.” And… she was not alone in her unmasking requests.

Obama officials later moved the unmasking documents to the Obama library.

The Deep State was spying on the Trump campaign and leaking documents to the liberal media for over a year now.

On Friday The House Intelligence Committee released their explosive FISA memo to the public.

The document proves that the FBI lied to the FISA Court in order to spy on Trump Campaign volunteer Carter Page during the 2016 election.

Ann Coulter On The SOTU: Democrats Boo America

Unlike the president, I don’t call everything “incredible,” but Trump’s State of the Union address was incredible, beautifully delivered. (This guy could have a future in television!)

As proof, I cite every single media outlet bitterly complaining after the speech that, as MSNBC’s chyron put it: “TRUMP FAILS TO MENTION RUSSIA’S ELECTION MEDDLING IN STATE OF THE UNION.”

He did not address the elephant in the room!

A lot of people don’t like Trump, but no one was thinking that. It’s only an elephant in your room, media. This is the very definition of solipsistic.

What did they want him to say? “I confess!”? Then they would have complained that the speech was all about him. There would be five Mueller deputies going over the speech, line by line.

If that’s all they got, it was a great speech.

Maria Bartiromo reveals stunning information that FBI may have plotted to “destroy evidence” of “secret society” to bring down Trump

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte was on Fox News this weekend with ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ host Maria Bartiromo to discuss the latest batch of Strzok-Page text messages.

Bartiromo said that she was told texts between the two FBI agents referenced an intent to “destroy evidence.”

Bartiromo asked Goodlatte…

“After the election, they talked about this secret society, did they also talk about destroying evidence?” 

Bartiromo followed up with this stunning statement…

I’m told there are some texts that haven’t been released yet aboutwe gotta get our hands on the hard drive or we gotta get our hands on the thumb drive’.”
