Politics comprises all actions that an individual takes in order to obtain support from other individuals to pursue a certain plan of actions, a policy. In particular it covers those actions that are taken by individuals to become part of a government.
“Neither the initial application in October 2016, nor any of the renewals, disclose or reference the role of the DNC, Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were then known to senior and FBI officials.”
“The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News. The Page FISA application incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News. Steele has admitted in British court flings that he met with Yahoo News and several other outlets in
September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington DC in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed.”
“in September 2016, Steele admitted to Ohr his feelings against then-
candidate Trump when Steele said he was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not, being president. This clear evidence of Steele bias was recorded by Ohr at the time and subsequently in offcial FBI files but not reflected in any of the Page FISA applications.”
“The Ohrs’ relationship with Steele and Fusion GPS was inexplicably
concealed from the FISC.”
“Deputy Director McCabe testifed before the Committee in December 2017 that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISC without the Steele dossier information.”
#FakeNewsCNN is frantically engaging in psychological warfare propaganda against #TheMemo that was just released to the public, without providing any link to the memo. CNN is for idiots. NEVER. FORGET. #CNNisISIS#CNNisFakeNews
I forgot to post this when it was published. 25 days ago I had another great discussion with my fellow Being Libertarian contributors. In it I stated that the big picture battle is Trump vs the Deep State, wherein I make the case that elements of the mainstream media are part of the deep state, as has been openly admitted via the officially exposed Operation Mockingbird.
This is relevant in light of what you can see unraveling right now, in particular the smears that led to Michael Flynn’s resignation as prospective National Security Adviser.
Finally, I tend to agree with Mike Cernovich who states in this clip that Flynn’s resignation is a huge victory for the mainstream media, and a huge display of weakness on Trump’s part.
The only precaution I would throw in is that ultimately we obviously don’t know what went on behind the scenes. It’s a plausible speculation that there may have been other reasons to dump Flynn, and that Trump is just baiting the mainstream media.
In any case, Trump VS the Deep State is just one symptom of the true conflict, that is the conflict between common citizen driven media and establishment billionaire narratives, and it is only just beginning.
My friend Dylan recorded and edited our conversation about my experience at the Milo talk that was supposed to take place at UC Berkeley. He’d also attended Milo’s event at the University of Washington not too long ago and shared some of his thoughts.
