Connecting Dots Creates Shocking Truth

by Rev. Austin Miles
 Lawrence Craig is a patriot who has an incredible library of research material, papers, old history books, and published records regarding practically everything that concerns American Citizens. Especially Godly citizens who truly care about America. He freely shares his gold mine of information with columnists such as this one. It has been suggested by this writer that he do his own column. However he chooses to stay in the background and simply help those columnists on the front lines fighting for the sovereignty of The United States.
The intermarriage of various office holders in America who combine their abilities to tear down our country is staggering. The unbelievable interconnection of the various ‘movers and shakers’ who work against America is shocking to say the least, and to CONNECT THE DOTS will cause readers to slap their foreheads and say, “WHAT?” 
So put on a pot of coffee….COFFEE…not Brandy, since there is a risk of overdoing it when these stats are read. Especially when it is realized that the politicos have gotten away with it….so far…and how everybody is connected to everybody making one feel alone in a sea of political crabgrass.
So let’s follow the trail…but slowly and patiently. When all the pieces are sewn together, it obviously exposes conspiracy and treason. From 2001 to 2005, there was an ongoing investigation of The Clinton Foundation. A Grand Jury had been impaneled. GOVERNMENTS from around the world donated to the “Charity.”  However, none of these “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.
Any honest investigator would have been able to figure this out. Within the muddle,  this particular individual came forth front and center, to set the record straight. That individual was…..drum roll….JAMES COMEY.
From there a transfer to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Brand of the IRS turned out to be….FANFARE…Lois Lerner!
Meanwhile, the individual who ran the Tax Division inside the department of (in)justice from 2001 to 2005 was none other than, Assistant Attorney General of the United States….trumpets…Rod Rosenstein!
Of course this is all “coincidence” doncha know, but the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame was—Sustaining TYMPANY ROLL— ROBERT MUELLER.

And what did all four characters have in common?  They were all briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation. Wow! Coincidences all over the place.
FAST FORWARD TO 2009….
James Comey left the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin. Hillary Clinton was running the State Department, on her own personal email server.  The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of Hillary. Like all good public servants do in looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of U.S. Uranium to, no other, than the Russians!  Notice that it was not a Donald Trump collusion with the Russians…it was Hillary.
This appeared to be a straight up deal, but was it?  The people got absolutely nothing out of if.  However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton rushed to Moscow, got paid Five Hundred Thousand bucks for a one hour speech, then met with Vladimir Putin at his home for several hours. Again, this was a Clinton, not a Trump.
Meanwhile, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme. And the FBI director during this time?  Yep, Robert Mueller who even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009. And who handled that case within the Justice Department out of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Maryland?  Better sit down…Rod Rosenstein.
As for the informant, The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to put him behind bars if he spoke out about lt.
Sudden Thawt Dept. How did 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole, providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?
After the sale was approved, 145 Million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.  Lois Lerner was still at the Internal Revenue Service working with the Charitable Division where she regularly blocked legitimate churches and ministers from receiving a tax exemption.
WHOOSH! It is now 2015:
Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovered that  Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized outlaw personal email server. He also discovered that none of these emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was and is required by law.
He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email. (Let’s not forget-at least 10 CIA spies in China were killed by the Chinese because of the leaks, and God knows what else occurred.)  Sparing you the State Departments’ cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.
Now here is the amazing part: Guess who became FBI Director in 2013? Guess who had secured 17 no-bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank  you present when he departed his employer? None other than James Comey. Isn’t it amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at The State Department.?
Comey was the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after his FBI investigated the Lois Lerner “matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerated her. No crimes there. Really?
In April 2016, James Comey drafted an exoneration letter of HIllary Rodham Clinton as the DOJ was handing out immunity deals. A Grand Jury was NOT convened. James Comey then stepped out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July 5th of 2016, and exonerated Hillary from any wrongdoing.
It goes on and on. Rosenstein became Asst. Attorney General, Comey got fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaked government information TO THE PRESS, Mueller then was assigned to the Russian Investigation scam by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ.
FISA Abuse, Political Espionage…pick a crime, any crime, chances are…this group and a few others did it. All the same players. All compromised and conflicted. All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves. ALL CONNECTED IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER TO THE CLINTONS.
As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation as being the largest international Charity Fraud in the history of mankind,  has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service. Let us not forget that Comey’s brother worked for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. Hillary Clinton was the common denominator to all the crimes above.
Next Question: WHO IS LISA BARSOOMIAN?
She is a U.S. Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protégé of James Comey and Robert Mueller. Brsoomian, with her boss, R Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.
Her boss, Lawrence, also represented:
Robert Mueller three times;
James Comey five times,
Barack Obama 45 times
Kathleen Sebelius 56 times
Bill Clinton 40 times
Hillary Clinton 17 Times
Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.
So why should we care about her or her work history?  Someone cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian Court Documents for her Clinton Representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the D.C. District Court of Appeals Court Dockets. Someone cares so much that the Internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian.
STAY WITH US FOR SHOCKER AT END.
Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative.  Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. And although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the D.C. office of the U.S. Attorney, her email address is: LisaBarsoomian@NIH gov.  The HIH stands for National Institute of Health. This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities
Why one more attorney with ties to the U.S. Intelligence Community really matters:  Because it deals with President Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports. the Border Wall, Daca, Everything coming out of California. the Imo-Party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper Leaks, the Comey Leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions Recusal and 14 month nap with occasional forays into the Marijuana legalization mix…and last but not least, Mueller’s never-ending investigation into so-called Collusion between the Trump Team and the Russians.
SO WHY DOES CIA OPERATIVE BARSOOMIAN, MERIT ATTENTION?
BECAUSE…SHE IS ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL ROD ROSENSTEIN’S WIFE.
Our gratitude to Lawrence Craig for sharing these files with us.

President Trump: "America Will N O T Become a Socialist Nation!" 

by Rev. Austin Miles
WASHINGTON, D.C. 2/5/10–It is interesting as a journalist how two or three writers come up with the same headline at the same time when doing a story. Yep, it happened last night as one sentence was pulled out of the SOTU address by our president to herald a new story. Several used that statement in their headlines. The sentence this column used was written immediately after the address.

Having seen every State of the Union Address by every president since the age of 12 (85 now) this writer is now qualified to say that this was the best State of the Union Address ever made. It was a message of reconciliation, of two rival parties being able to work together for one cause–the good of America. There was also a message of hope, accomplishments and patriotism.
Never has America been a more divided country than during this century and especially at the time of this event.. No matter how beneficial to the people a new law or idea could bring, the Democrats immediately come against it. Their entire goal seems to be to sabotage everything Trump offers. Then again, the Democratic Party is actually the Communist Party.
Chuck Schumer was seen in the audience with a perpetual sly-snake half grin on his face as he mentally engineered how to take down President Trump. For political correctness this column apologizes to the snakes in this world for suggesting they have faces like Schumer.
Nancy Pelosi sat lemon-faced during most of the address even though there were times she HAD to applaud and stand up or face criticism. The Dems intended to sit out every standing ovation when President Trump hit it out of the park. The points he made were so solid that the Dems and Pelosi popped up, then glanced around confused as though an invisible spring sprung them up to their feet.
A big protest was carefully planned by ‘women mistreated by misogynists such as President Trump (?)  They all dressed in white, taking up a big visible section of the chambers to bring attention to themselves.  The white dresses indicate how they are being held down by men and do NOT stand a chance of succeeding in this male dominated world. How’s that again?
These poor mistreated women in white who were protesting are official Delegates of the U.S. House of Representatives.  The House now has more than 100 women in office. Ninety of those are Democrats.  Not only that, President Trump, a highly successful businessman, has put more women in executive positions than anyone on record. ‘Held back’ women indeed! And the Democrat-Communist women are in the majority of women holding office in D.C. Yet they still are not satisfied.
When President Donald Trump saluted the record number of women elected to Congress in the November elections, Democrats in white leapt to their feet, high-fived each other and chanted, “U-S-A.!”
Republicans jumped to their feet again and again when Trump said the U.S. needs to crack down on people entering the US illegally. Mostly, Democrats stayed seated. Some booed when Trump described immigrants on the march to the US.  Some chuckled when he referred to a “tremendous onslaught” of people coming over the border. Most sat in silence when he said that encouraging illegal immigration was “cruel.” These Demrats are destructive mental cases who do not want the U.S. to succeed. They want only a Socialist-Communist government where only the leaders will have excellent living conditions while the rest live in squalor and poverty.
The neighbors were probably jarred by the word, “Y E S”  that emanated from my home during the SOTU address when our President stated firmly that; “America will NOT become a Socialist Nation.”
Our president went on to say:   “We stand with the Venezuelan people and their noble quest for freedom and we condemn their brutality of the Maduro​ regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair.Here in the United States, we are alarmed by the new calls to adopt socialism in our country.  America was founded on liberty and independence and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free and we will stay free.
“Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”  A roar of approval could be heard. The camera then settled on Bernie Sanders in the audience whose face was so sour he must have been raised on dill pickles. That statement meant a lot to this writer personally, who totally rejects Socialism and Communism, knowing full well what it’s like to be under that dictatorship.
Again this speech was beautifully crafted and delivered showing President Trump’s eagerness to work together with the Dems for the good of our country. But the Demrats wouldn’t have it. They only want to destroy America. They are not capable of civil discourse..
The Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders is set to announce his presidential  bid “imminently.”  Bernie would join Sens. Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, and former Obama HUD Secretary Joaquin Castro in making their 2020 plans official. Try not to have nightmares tonight.

MilesTones: Beware of Contagious Pelosium Disease!

by Rev. Austin Miles

Many diseases have been connected to Washington, D.C. With such an active swamp that needs to be drained, it is obvious why so much sick ideas seep out of it.
These diseases warp the minds of politicrats which can be fatal to intelligence. These elements need to be eradicated before the new elections.
A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium. The chemical symbol of Pelosium is P.U. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311. These particles are held together by dark particles called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of inepton-like particles called peons.
Pelosium’s mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes.
 This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientist to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass.
When catalyzed with money, Pelosium activates MSNBCobnoxium and CNNadnausium, both elements that radiate orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since they have half as many peons but twice as many morons as Pelosium.
Since it has no electrons, Pelosium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with.
 According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Pelosium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second.
 In the presence of anti-morons, Pelosium can be extremely corrosive. Botox seems to distort and smooth its surface, without impeding it’s ongoing internal decay.
Pelosium has a normal half-life of approximately two years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a transmutation, appearing in a new location but displaying the same properties. In this process, assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places.
 Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each transmutation.
Research at other laboratories indicates that Pelosium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as deep state government agencies, large corporations, universities, and anywhere there is news coverage occurring. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained of buildings and/or expensive airplanes.
Scientists point out that Pelosium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Pelosium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising.  Its corrosive nature corrupts everything it touches.
 So beware. This disease is prominent, especially among democrats. Republicans have built up an immunity to Pelosium by staying as far away from the source as possible.

MilesTones-Way Back When People Were Polite

by Rev. Austin Miles
We have been through the Bronze Age, the Age of Faith, the Age of Reason, the Age of Enlightenment, the Age of Louis X1V,  and the Age of Voltaire.
Even with the subjects at hand for discussion, back then there was a dignity of the people and all talk was polite, even in disagreements.  Of course this was before the Age of Democrats. From there all respect for others went down the….swamp (more elegant than using toilet).

Today, all conversations seem to be powered by crudeness, insults,and disparagement bound up in the covers of vulgarity.  Today there seems to be an effort to belittle others.
Fortunately this writer lived in the days of respect where all conversations reflected that time in life. I can remember when we were visiting family members in Kentucky, one of the young men in the family brought his new girl friend to visit and get acquainted with us.
All went well until a bee buzzed that girl friend’s face, she jumped up and swatting at the bee, yelled…..“DAAAAAAMN!  We all gasped, shook our heads and thought loudly that this was NOT the girl for him. That was considered a curse word back then. And a girl using such language was unthinkable.
Going to school, when the teacher entered the room, all the young men automatically took of their hats and caps. We never called a teacher by a first name without putting a Miss or Mr. in front of that name.
As time went by the insult radio host came into being. Joe Pine was one of the first who insulted his guests. People were shocked at his first broadcast, but they kept tuning in. More hosts gained a microphone with the same format. When television became a staple, one would not only hear the insults but see the expressions on the faces.
Then the insult comedian came forward (night clubs, Vegas, theaters) and stupid people would pay money to be insulted. It was considered chic.
The crudeness and rudeness spilled over into society. And when someone insulted another, it carried with it a real sting, not the non-sting that brought out the loud, “DAMN” from the girlfriend who was never invited back, but a real painful sting.
But back in my youthful days, insults were actually funny, made their point but were never rude or cruel. Wanting to gather those classy insults I consulted a retired pastor friend who helped greatly in putting these together. Here they are.
When Insults Had Class
These glorious insults are from an era before the English language got boiled down to 4-letter words.
�  A member of Parliament to Disraeli: “Sir, you will either die on the gallows or of some unspeakable disease.”
�  “That depends, Sir,” said Disraeli, “whether I embrace your policies or your       mistress.”
�  “He had delusions of adequacy.” – Walter Kerr
�  “He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire.” –       Winston Churchill
�  “I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great         pleasure.”  Clarence Darrow
�  “He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the      dictionary.” – William Faulkner (about Ernest Hemingway).
�  “Thank you for sending me a copy of your book; I’ll waste no time reading it.”          Moses Hadas
�  “I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.    –           Mark Twain
�  “He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends..” – Oscar Wilde
�  “I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend, if          you have one.” – George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill
�  “Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second … if there is one.” –        Winston Churchill, in response.
�  “I feel so miserable without you; it’s almost like having you here.” –       Stephen Bishop
�  “He is a self-made man and worships his creator.” – John Bright
�  “I’ve just learned about his illness. Let’s hope it’s nothing trivial.” –
Irvin S. Cobb
�  “He is not only dull himself; he is the cause of dullness in others.” –
Samuel Johnson
�  “He is simply a shiver looking for a spine to run up.” – Paul Keating
�  “In order to avoid being called a flirt, she always yielded easily.” –
Charles, Count Talleyrand
�  “He loves nature in spite of what it did to him.” – Forrest Tucker
�  “Why do you sit there looking like an envelope without any address on it?” –       Mark Twain
�  “His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork.” – Mae West
�  “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.” –
Oscar Wilde
�  “He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts… for support rather       than illumination.” – Andrew Lang (1844-1912)
�  “He has Van Gogh’s ear for music.” – Billy Wilder
�  “I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening.  But this wasn’t it.” – Groucho Marx
Yes, I do miss the old days. They were classier.


Soros' Women Ambushed Flake Elevator

by Rev. Austin Miles
One of the most famous TV captures, during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, was an elevator containing Sen. Jeff Flake opening its doors as two women ambushed it keeping Senator Flake unmovable inside. They had heard him say he would vote for Judge Kavanaugh and yelled at him to not do so. Not asked politely, mind you, but yelled at him like savages. And why did nobody interfere?
This writer was fascinated how bold these women were to confront a United States Senator in his private space and talk so rudely to him. Of course, curiosity raised its inquiring head and armed with pencil and pad, this citizen journalist bounded out leaving the cape behind.
The two women, we learned, were Ana (editors don’t panic, only one “n”) Maria Archila accompanied by  Maria Gallagher (a Spanish Irish Mix?) and they proved to be what this scribe suspected. They both are useful idiots on the payroll of George Soros.
When any disturbance to disrupt a procedure explodes, one can safely bet that George Soros and his money is the culprit behind the disruption.
So who ARE these women? Archila is the co-executive director for the Center for popular Democracy and the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund,which is a George Soros organization to essentially destroy America. The organization is also identified as Big League Politics.
He has a couple hundred such organizations which are….tax free. Yep, we pay for Soros to set up his compounds in America designed to take over our country and put us all under his thumb. All these deceptively named organizations appear to be patriotic.
Archila’s partner in tandem, Gallagher, is also  generously paid by Soros who is burning with the ambition to take America down, turn it into a Communist country with him becoming the potentate of the world.
Soros, who owns and runs the Democratic Party is experiencing the panic of his life. If Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court, all Soros’ dreams will turn to nightmares since America would become a stronger world force.
There has been enough written about Soros to show that he is the most evil man on earth. He can and should be arrested for Treason and Sedition. If President Trump would like to improve relationships with Russia, he could allow Russian soldiers to come, arrest Soros and take him back to Russia, that has an international warrant out for his arrest.
He is the individual who has agitated blacks against whites in anticipation of a big race war which would substantially weaken America. He is behind every riot bringing out the worst amongst all people. It is time for that to stop.
“CELEBRITY” KAVANAUGH PROTEST SCHEDULED
Numerous so-called stars plan a protest today, Thursday October 4th, against the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
Headline seekers, Lena Dunham, John Legend, Amy Schumer, and Alicia Keys are among those scheduled. They are calling this protest #/CANCEL KAVANAUGH.”
It will be held outside the E Barrett Pretty-man Federal Courthouse in Washington, D.C. around noon.
The organizers have stated that they will target the Senators who have not solidified their vote on Kavanaugh as of yet. Patriots should be welcome.
GOV. MOONBEAM SEZ NOT TO PREVENT SUICIDE BUT TO ASSIST IN IT! 

The goof-ball governor of California just signed a bill. AB 282, stating that it is OK to aid, advise, or encourage people with suicidal thoughts. In other words, this is another twist on the law of euthanasia allowing those to be killed who do not want to be killed, according to Jim Kouri of NewsWithViews.
This bill would allow a doctor or nurse to “aid,” “advise,” and “encourage” you to take suicide pills. And this new law lets a relative, who could financially benefit from your death, to sign an order giving you suicide pills,” said Charles Finneman, a criminal psychologist with the American Federation of Police and Concern Citizens.
“Now the law in California says that it is okay to aid, advise, or encourage people with suicidal thoughts to actually go through with killing themselves,” according to officials with Life Legal, a nonpartisan, non-profit oversight group. “We refuse to stand idly by as California and the rest of the nation proceed down this deadly path.”
Today, the news of the world makes no sense. Things have become so screwy, that this writer is now going out for a long walk.
We thank Reader Contributor Lawrence Craig for alerting us to this story.

KAEPERNICK FINANCES ABORTION CLINICS!

by Rev. Austin Miles

This piece is admittedly published with bias against the subject, Colin Kaepernick. This writer is a veteran who was hit with Mustard Gas during the Korean Conflict which left me with severe lifetime health issues including horrific constant pain that I live under to this day.
So to see millionaire football player Colin Kaepernick literally spitting on the American Flag, the flag I served under, and the flag that gave this black man the opportunity to become a wealthy football star, makes my blood boil.
Kaepernick gave $25,000 to the Center for Reproductive Rights, which carries out the slaughter of pre-born babies. This is the outfit who took part in the Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Rode Vs. Wade with the tag line: “Happy 40th Anniversary, Baby.”  This is not only sick, it is depraved. How can anyone hate little babies that much?
Kaepernick gave another 25 grand to the Lower East Side Girl’s Club including $8000 for travel to Detroit to march with with radical pro-abortion women.
Birds of a Feather: Nike who recently announced that their new spokesperson would be Colin Kaepernick, gives matching grants to the nation’s biggest abortion chain.
He is able to do these things due to the money fans have given the ticket office to see him play with the NFL.
Here is what this rich black “persecuted” man has to say about America: “Radicalized oppression and dehumanization are woven into the fabric of our nation.” Really!
Oh yes, it has been reported that Kaepernick has a Muslim girlfriend and has himself become a Muslim. Figures.
This bag of trash should be railroaded out of the United States of America without delay.
Woman Pastor Pushes Abortion! What?

Over the centuries, continuous controversy has played out over women being ministers and pastors. One objection is that women are driven by emotions which cloud accurate biblical decisions, such as performing same-sex “marriages”. Others point to the Bible declaring that there is no place in the Bible showing that women should to be ordained.
Alicia Baker, an ordained minister from Indianapolis went to Washington, D.C. on September 7th (last Friday) to testify against the approval of Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.She bolstered her testimony by stating, now get this, ‘the Bible endorses forcing Christians to fund abortion drugs.’  How’s that again? What Bible is she reading??
Baker urged the Senate to oppose Kavanaugh’s confirmation because of his decision to grant religious exemptions to the Obamacare HHS mandate.
Ms. Baker remembers that In 2015, Kavanaugh sided with Priests for Life in its challenge of the Obamacare HHS mandate while serving on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. He said the government should not force religious employers to provide drugs and devices that may induce abortions.

Ex-CIA officers running for Congress as Democrats

The Daily 202: Ex-CIA officers running for Congress as Democrats

October 18, 2017
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.c2c574b6129f

THE BIG IDEA: The spooks have come in from the cold, and they’re running for Congress.

Alarmed by President Trump and galvanized by Russian interference in the 2016 election, Democratic alumni of the Central Intelligence Agency are challenging Republican incumbents from Virginia to Michigan and New York.
Abigail Spanberger spent eight years as an operations officer for the CIA, recruiting and developing spies, with a focus on counterterrorism. Before joining the agency, she worked in law enforcement for the U.S. Postal Inspection Service — targeting drug dealers and money laundering. In 2014, Spanberger left the agency and moved home to the Richmond suburb of Glen Allen, near where she and her husband grew up, to raise their three kids. The 38-year-old is now challenging Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.), the Freedom Caucus leader who toppled then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a 2014 primary.
“There is a lot of concern among people living in our district about where we find ourselves on the international stage,” Spanberger said in an interview. “I believe very firmly that the United States of America is the world’s superpower, and we have a responsibility to be a stabilizing force.”
The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks happened during Elissa Slotkin’s first week living in New York City. She had just started her graduate studies at Columbia University. Because she was fluent in Arabic, the CIA recruited her to be a Middle East analyst and then deployed her to Baghdad. She served three tours in Iraq over five years. She left to become the director for Iraq policy on the National Security Council, moved to the State Department and finally the Pentagon. When Barack Obama left office in January, she was the acting assistant secretary of defense for international security. Now 41, she’s moved home to Michigan and is running against GOP Rep. Mike Bishop. She outraised him last quarter.
Making this a trend story: Jeff Beals, 40, spent four years as a CIA intelligence officer after graduating from Harvard in 1998. He moved to the State Department in 2002 and spent four years working on Middle East peace there. Now a high school history teacher in Woodstock, N.Y., he is one of several Democrats vying to take on GOP Rep. John Faso.
— A handful of other Democratic House candidates also have intelligence backgrounds, though not at the CIA. Patrick Ryan, one of the top-tier contenders to face Faso in New York’s Hudson Valley, served two combat tours in Iraq, including one as the lead intelligence officer for an infantry battalion in Mosul. After retiring as a captain, the West Point grad started a successful cybersecurity firm. “The thing being an intelligence officer taught me is that there is no simple answer that can be captured in 140 characters,” Ryan said in an interview. “I don’t think our commander in chief understands the complexity and the second- and third- order consequences of his decisions. … War has to be the last resort in all cases”
— Trump has antagonized the intelligence community by questioning the expertise and professionalism of employees at the various spy agencies. He has never fully accepted their conclusion that Vladimir Putin ordered a comprehensive cyber campaign to boost his campaign and sabotage the presidential election. “The whole Russia thing was an excuse for the Democrats losing the election,” Trump said again Monday during a news conference in the Rose Garden.
Shortly before taking office, Trump memorably compared the intelligence community he now oversees to Nazi Germany. The day after being inaugurated, Trump visited CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., and drew criticism for delivering self-referential remarks before a wall of stars memorializing fallen officers. Visiting Poland in July, the president said U.S. intelligence analysts were wrong about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction — so they could also be wrong again about the Russians. In March, Trump asked two of the nation’s top intelligence officials to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government. Both refused.
Across the “deep state,” there are pockets of concern about the president’s fitness for office. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) spoke for many who cannot go on the record when he expressed fear that Trump’s behavior is setting the nation “on the path to World War III.”

— But the CIA prides itself on being independent and nonpartisan. People from across the ideological spectrum work there. “It is wholly unfortunate that the president — at least through his actions and words — isn’t appreciating what they do,” said Spanberger, who is running in Virginia. “At the end of the day, it’s a nonpartisan institution. To be a professional intelligence officer is really a unique path. They have a job to do: to serve the American people. So they just continue to do their jobs.”
Spanberger said what’s frustrated her the most this year has been when Trump and congressional Republicans make hasty decisions without having all the facts. Her mission at the CIA was to collect as much intelligence as possible so that policymakers could make more informed choices. “We’d ask ourselves: what information do we not have? What information are the analysts looking for? Then on the operations side, we’d look to figure out how to get that information,” she explained. “My role was to encourage people to take great risks so that our government could act wisely and make decisions based on that information.”
That’s one of the reasons that the House health-care debate really got her goat. “As a former CIA officer, the idea that the legislative body would put through a bill without so much as a CBO score was shocking to me,” Spanberger explained. “It runs antithetical to everything I believe in.”

— The former CIA officials, seeking elected office for the first time, are full of wisdom about how to deal with global hotspots, but they also understand that voters are primarily motivated by breadbasket issues. On the stump, each puts the heaviest emphasis on the economy and health care. That said, they’ve also discovered that — because the world is such a tinderbox right now — people are remarkably engaged on national security.
Back in Michigan, Slotkin said that she routinely gets asked about global events people read about in that day’s newspaper: “Businessmen ask me, ‘I have a trip coming up in Seoul. Should I cancel?’ Or, ‘My kid is supposed to study abroad in Asia. Should they go?’ People are concerned about the instability.”
Because both women are challenging Republican incumbents and Trump won each district by 7 points last year, they are running as pragmatic moderates who are eager to work across the aisle.
“I am out there every day talking with Trump voters,” Slotkin said. “For the first two minutes of the conversation … they think I am a Republican because of my CIA and DOD experience. Then they ask what I am running as. I say I am running as a Midwestern Democrat and that I have worked for Democrats and Republicans proudly. People will then say they consider themselves independent. That’s Michigan.”
Each could be well positioned to ride a wave of backlash in the midterms — if it materializes. “There’s no doubt that former CIA officers and national security experts have strong records of service to our country and authentic messages that appeal to Democrats, independents and Republican voters alike,” said Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokesman Tyler Law.

— Republicans note that all the Democratic candidates mentioned above need to make it through primaries, which could force them to the left. Spanberger, running against Brat, faces five other Democrats in a primary that won’t take place until next year.
GOP operatives expect they will probably wind up fielding a couple of candidates of their own who have intelligence backgrounds, though no one who has announced for 2018 yet has worked at the CIA. Andrew Grant, running against Rep. Ami Bera (D-Calif.), was a Marine Corps intelligence officer before working at the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department.
Rep. Will Hurd (R-Tex.), who is facing a tough reelection fight in a district carried by Hillary Clinton, is a former CIA agent who was stationed in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Two of his Democratic challengers have intel backgrounds. Gina Ortiz Jones is a former Air Force intelligence officer who deployed to Iraq and worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency. Jay Hulings was a staffer on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and worked as legislative director for retired Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.). Both of his parents were CIA agents.

— A cautionary tale: After nearly a decade in Langley as an analyst, Kevin Strouse was the Democratic nominee in 2014 against former congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.). But he lost. Shortly afterward, Strouse wrote a fascinating post for a blog called Overt Action about the pitfalls of running for office as a CIA alumnus:
“Many regarded my intelligence background with skepticism,” he recalled. “Some believed I had spent my time bombing people in Pakistan from unmanned aircraft, while others assumed that I had overthrown foreign governments. … In one instance I was presumed accountable for the Phoenix Program during the Vietnam War, an impressive feat since that effort preceded my birth by two decades. Also, I was constantly asked if I watched Homeland, if I liked Homeland, and if I was trying to ‘be’ Homeland …
“While very comfortable discussing foreign policy issues, I often knew things I could not discuss publicly,” he added. “Over the course of the campaign, media reporting surrounding the intelligence community often drove voter interest in the topic, and usually not in a good way. I was frequently asked about the Intelligence Community spying on American citizens after Edward Snowden began leaking classified information about NSA programs in June 2013. I also was often asked about the attack on the US diplomatic post in Benghazi…
“I also discovered very quickly that the skills required for being a top-notch Agency analyst are far different than what is necessary to be a successful Congressional candidate,” Strouse concluded. “CIA analytic briefings are usually dry and stuffy. They focus on data, nuance, and uncertain outcomes. Policy recommendations are a big no-no. Briefings are presented dispassionately. Suffice to say, the way CIA analysts are trained to give briefings and answer questions will not get people on their feet cheering. Voters expect their elected leaders to be definitive and show passion and convictions for their beliefs.”

— The former CIA officers who will be on the ballot in 2018 are preparing for the Russians to once again wage an influence campaign — and they expect that they will be targets. At the Pentagon last year, Slotkin was the lead negotiator with Moscow on the memorandum of understanding related to Syria. The goal was to make sure that U.S. aircraft could fly over that country without being shot down by the Russians. She said they secretly filmed her during one negotiating session and put the video on YouTube until the U.S. government complained. She routinely receives spearfishing emails and other notifications of attempted hacks.
It’s quite a big concern,” she added in a recent interview. “We will be, of course, watching the Facebook ads that are put out, and we’ll do our best to monitor how they’re going to try to sow chaos in my election and probably many, many others. … If the Russians are really doing what we believe them to be doing, then I would be a choice target. They already know me, and they don’t love me. So we’ve done a lot of work to make sure that anyone associated with the campaign has gone through proper training for cybersecurity. Even the interns.”

BREAKING: Former Fox News Head Bill Shine in ‘Final Talks’ to Become White House Comms Director

BREAKING: Former Fox News Head Bill Shine in ‘Final Talks’ to Become White House Comms Director

_____________________________________

Bill Shine, the former co-president of Fox News, is in final talks to take over the post of White House communications director.
Fox News’ own White House reporter John Roberts took to Twitter to report the news on Wednesday.
The New York Times reported, based on sources, that Shine was offered the job by Trump.
Shine, a longtime executive at the network, served as its co-president for nearly 10 months after the ouster of longtime head Roger Ailes amidst a wave of sexual harassment allegations.
Shine, considered by many to be Ailes’ protege at the network, left Fox News himself in the wake of a network-wide housecleaning, but has denied wrongdoing in the handling of sexual harassment allegations.
Since leaving the network Shine has reportedly been in contention for a position in the White House. He has also spent much of his time, Politico reported, down at President Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida along with mutual friend Sean Hannity.
The role of White House communications director has been a merry-go-round in the Trump administration. It was a position first held by the remarkably ill-equipped Sean Spicer, who passed it off to an invisible Mike Dubke, who was replaced — for eleven thrilling days — by brash New York financier Anthony Scaramucci. Hope Hicks served calmly in the position for the second half of 2017, until she left the job unfilled after her White House boyfriend found himself embroiled in a domestic abuse scandal.
As the conventional wisdom goes, Trump is his own communications director. But given Bill Shine’s stature as a longtime executive at Fox News, a network with close ties to the administration, he could prove to have staying power if he’s chosen for the job.
Mediaite has reached out to the White House for comment.

Charge De Niro with Public Obscenity!

by Rev. Austin Miles

NEW YORK-Tuesday- 6/11/18…I would not watch the Tony Awards last night. First of all I have more to do than watch a bunch of ham actors and actresses patting each other on the back and telling the world how great they (we) are. Even the participants didn’t seem to know what they were there for.
Robert DeNiro, a wanna be mafia don, seemed to think he was there to advise us on Washington, D.C. politics, yelling out, “F…k Trump!”  A phrase he repeated as the audience cheered and got to their feet.  This writer saw the video today. Yep, standing ovation for insulting the man millions of people voted for to lead our country.
That event was supposed to be about Broadway with awards given to those who performed better than others. Not to publicly disrespect our president or to use disrespectful words.
We ask this valid question. Aren’t there strict laws in the books regarding public obscenity?  There was at one time. Actors, like Mae West was jailed for using even slight vulgarity on the stage and in her movies. Lenny Bruce was arrested on the spot for saying the “F” word on stage at a club in New York.
This event bothered me for several reasons.  As this is being written, President Donald Trump is in North Korea, meeting with Dictator Kim Jong Un a man who has threatened the entire world, including the U.S. with Nuclear destruction.
President Donald Trump is the first and only world leader to contact him and arrange a face to face meeting. Only he could have pulled that off. The meeting is in progress at this moment.
President Trump meeting with the North Korean Leader is absolutely a first. And if he accomplishes this peace accord, he must be given the Nobel Prize even though Obama received the Nobel Prize simply for being dumped–not elected–into The Oval Office. Another case of insanity politics.
And THIS is the man, our president, that  DeNiro referred to from the stage, and seen by millions on television, using his typical filthy language to screech…
“F..K Trump!”
For Robert DeNiro to splatter out that obscenity in public is in itself criminal. This vulgarity was heard and seen by millions of people including children. Att: DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE in D.C., if possible, please take action against this low life for public obscenities. That law should still be on the books.
It was sad to see the magnificent Radio City Music Hall, a stage I have been on, become a receptacle for low life trash. Plus, there was a time when the acting profession was professional and the actors and actresses were ladies and gentlemen, carried dignity wherever they went, wore suits on personal appearances and on TV, were well-groomed, and never, never were heard using such obscene words.
Yes, there were real actors, real stars in those days. But now, unfortunately, Hollywood has become a cesspool of muck. We look forward to seeing the ratings of this abomination last night.
Broadway, at one time, offered the ultimate stage presentations. However the Broadway crowd is now the same. When Vice President Pence went to a theater to see “Hamilton,” in order to relax and enjoy a show with his family, those bastards went to the front of the stage and insulted our vice president. (Don’t panic, that is a Biblical word.)
If we were to wise up and stop spending our money to go to movies, or spend our time watching TV, stage and screen awards be given to these egomaniacs for pretending to be someone else, and spend time with our families, we would be much better off.
