Bombshell: Evidence of CIA Role in Forging Obama's Birth Certificate

Jerome Corsi and Rob Dew talk about the nearly forgotten joke known as Obama's birth certificate, and the CIA's role in forging it. Help us spread the word a...

Nah, he's just a C.I.A. operative doing the bidding of the globalists and Wall Street.

Obama worked for Business International, a well-known C.I.A. front. So too did Bill Clinton.

Obama's father worked for the C.I.A.

And Obama's mother did likewise. She attended a Russian language school in Hawaii in the 1960s. The only folks who attended this school were intelligence operatives.

What to think?

You'd say, "Gee, [Buddy], what are the odds of that happening in one family?

TCM's Film Noir of the Week for Sunday, December 17, at 10 a.m. ET is the Original, Red-Hot Version of James M. Cain's The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946), Starring John Garfield and Lana Turner

TCM's Film Noir of the Week for Sunday, December 17, at 10 am ET is The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946). This version of James M. Cain's novel is perhaps most notable for pairing John Garfield and Lana Turner.


John Garfield, Hume Cronyn, and Lana Turner

Garfield plays a drifter who happens upon a diner just outside of Los Angeles. The proprietor (Cecil Kellaway) offers him a job. Garfield's "itchy feet" make him inclined to turn the job down until he sees the owner's (much younger) sexy blond wife, whereupon he hires on.

Audrey Totter

The doomed lovers soon hatch a plan to dispose of the oblivious Kellaway and run off together. This is the prototype Noir plot line. The protagonist spots the sexiest woman he's ever seen and self-destructs. Hume Cronyn has a supporting role as a conniving defense lawyer who gets them off. At first.

Leon Ames


Turner is always dressed in white.

Director Tay Garnett with Turner and Garfield

Our host, Eddie Muller, says The Postman Always Rings Twice was John Garfield's biggest box office hit. Along with Body and Soul (1947), one of his most famous.

Lefty Sportswriter: Rush Limbaugh was Right about the NFL, the Media, and Black Quarterbacks

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

In Super Bowl XXXIX, following the 2004 season, late in the game Donovan McNabb literally choked. He was sucking wind, as if he were ready to faint.

With McNabb’s opponent, NE Patriots signal-caller Tom Brady, it was smooth sailing ahead.

Note just how racist black NFL players typically are. Six years after Barra emphasized how right Limbaugh had been about black quarterback Donovan McNabb, black players attacked him all over again for that, as well for his having once shown a video of racist black kids mercilessly beating a white kid for sitting down on the school bus.

Jets linebacker Bart Scott got a job as a studio analyst not in spite of his racism, but because of it. And when he was a failure his first season as an analyst, Scott got asked back. (He said nothing the entire regular season, and when he did, it was during the playoffs, and his statement—about Peyton Manning’s failing arm strength—was almost certainly ghost-written by white partner Boomer Esiason, who suddenly had nothing to say.)

Black NFL Players ‘Wouldn’t Play’ For Limbaugh’s Team: ‘He’s A Jerk’
Ben Armbruster Oct 9, 2009, 4:18 p.m.

Earlier this week, the media reported that hate radio host Rush Limbaugh is involved in a bid to purchase the National Football League’s St. Louis Rams franchise. Many sports media figures lambasted the idea of Limbaugh owning an NFL team, with one writer saying it “would definitely hurt” the Rams while another said his “head exploded after hearing this Limbaugh news” because he is “a pungent bowl of stark raving bigoted lunacy.”

Now, the players themselves are piling on. Specifically, many African-American players have explicitly stated that they would never play for a team that Rush Limbaugh owns. “All I know is from the last comment I heard, he said in (President) Obama’s America, white kids are getting beat up on the bus while black kids are chanting ‘right on,’” New York Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka told the New York Daily News, adding, “I don’t want anything to do with a team that he has any part of.” Other black players expressed similar sentiments:

[New York Jets linebacker Bart] Scott says players remember what Limbaugh said [about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donavan McNabb], and adds that the NFL would be wise not to allow the nationally syndicated host into the league.

“It’s an oxymoron [?] that he criticized Donovan McNabb,” Scott said. “A lot of us took it as more of a racial-type thing. I can only imagine how his players would feel. I know I wouldn’t want to play for him. He’s a jerk. He’s an — -. What he said (about McNabb) was inappropriate and insensitive, totally off-base. He could offer me whatever he wanted, I wouldn’t play for him. … I wouldn’t play for Rush Limbaugh. My principles are greater and I can’t be bought.”

Indeed, as CNN reported at the time, ESPN fired Limbaugh from Sunday NFL Countdown for “his statement that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed.” But, of course, Limbaugh has a long sordid history with making racist remarks. Some of his more recent lowlights:

— “Look, let me put it to you this way: The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”

— “We need segregated buses. … This is Obama’s America.”

— “President Obama is black. And I think he’s got a chip on his shoulder.”

— Democrats are interested in Darfur to secure black “voting bloc.”

— “Minorities never do anything for which they have to apologize.”

— Obama’s nomination for president “goes back to the fact that nobody had the guts to stand up and say no to a black guy.”

— Obama is a “halfrican-American.”

Advising the NFL to block Limbaugh’s pursuit of an NFL franchise, St. Louis Dispatch sports columnist Bryan Burwell wrote recently,
“Dancing with Limbaugh is like dancing with a snake. Eventually, the snake will bite you. That’s his nature.”

Rush Limbaugh was Right

Donovan McNabb isn't a great quarterback, and the media do overrate him because he is black.
By Allen Barra

Limbaugh leaves over unfair football flap

In his notorious ESPN comments last Sunday night, Rush Limbaugh said he never thought the Philadelphia Eagles' Donovan McNabb was "that good of a quarterback."

If Limbaugh were a more astute analyst, he would have been even harsher and said, "Donovan McNabb is barely a mediocre quarterback." But other than that, Limbaugh pretty much spoke the truth. Limbaugh lost his job for saying in public what many football fans and analysts have been saying privately for the past couple of seasons.

[“More astute”: That’s a cheap shot by Barra. Limbaugh was being diplomatic.]

Let's review: McNabb, he said, is "overrated ... what we have here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback can do well—black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well."

"There's a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."

Let's take the football stuff first. For the past four seasons, the Philadelphia Eagles have had one of the best defenses in the National Football League and have failed to make it to the Super Bowl primarily because of an ineffective offense—an offense run by Donovan McNabb.

McNabb was a great college quarterback, in my estimation one of the best of the '90s while at Syracuse. (For the record, I helped persuade ESPN Magazine, then called ESPN Total Sports, to put him on the cover of the 1998 college-football preview issue.) He is one of the most talented athletes in the NFL, but that talent has not translated into greatness as a pro quarterback.

McNabb has started for the Eagles since the 2000 season. In that time, the Eagles offense has never ranked higher than 10th in the league in yards gained. In fact, their 10th-place rank in 2002 was easily their best; in their two previous seasons, they were 17th in a 32-team league. They rank 31st so far in 2003.

In contrast, the Eagles defense in those four seasons has never ranked lower than 10th in yards allowed. In 2001, they were seventh; in 2002 they were fourth; this year they're fifth. It shouldn't take a football Einstein to see that the Eagles' strength over the past few seasons has been on defense, and Limbaugh is no football Einstein, which is probably why he spotted it.

The news that the Eagles defense has "carried" them over this period should be neither surprising nor controversial to anyone with access to simple NFL statistics—or for that matter, with access to a television. Yet, McNabb has received an overwhelming share of media attention and thus the credit. Now why is this?

Let's look at a quarterback with similar numbers who also plays for a team with a great defense. I don't know anyone who would call Brad Johnson one of the best quarterbacks in pro football—which is how McNabb is often referred to. In fact, I don't know anyone who would call Brad Johnson, on the evidence of his 10-year NFL career, much more than mediocre. Yet, Johnson's NFL career passer rating, as of last Sunday, is 7.3 points higher than McNabb's (84.8 to 77.5), he has completed his passes at a higher rate (61.8 percent to 56.4 percent), and has averaged significantly more yards per pass (6.84 to 5.91). McNabb excels in just one area, running, where he has gained 2,040 yards and scored 14 touchdowns to Johnson's 467 and seven. But McNabb has also been sacked more frequently than Johnson—more than once, on average, per game, which negates much of the rushing advantage.

In other words, in just about every way, Brad Johnson has been a more effective quarterback than McNabb and over a longer period.

And even if you say the stats don't matter and that a quarterback's job is to win games, Johnson comes out ahead. Johnson has something McNabb doesn't, a Super Bowl ring, which he went on to win after his Bucs trounced McNabb's Eagles in last year's NFC championship game by a score of 27-10. The Bucs and Eagles were regarded by everyone as having the two best defenses in the NFL last year. When they played in the championship game, the difference was that the Bucs defense completely bottled up McNabb while the Eagles defense couldn't stop Johnson.

In terms of performance, many NFL quarterbacks should be ranked ahead of McNabb. But McNabb has represented something special to all of us since he started his first game in the NFL, and we all know what that is.

Limbaugh is being excoriated for making race an issue in the NFL. This is hypocrisy. I don't know of a football writer who didn't regard the dearth of black NFL quarterbacks as one of the most important issues in the late '80s and early '90s. (The topic really caught fire after 1988, when Doug Williams of the Washington Redskins became the first black quarterback to win a Super Bowl.)

So far, no black quarterback has been able to dominate a league in which the majority of the players are black. To pretend that many of us didn't want McNabb to be the best quarterback in the NFL because he's black is absurd. To say that we shouldn't root for a quarterback to win because he's black is every bit as nonsensical as to say that we shouldn't have rooted for Jackie Robinson to succeed because he was black. (Please, I don't need to be reminded that McNabb's situation is not so difficult or important as Robinson's—I'm talking about a principle.)

Consequently, it is equally absurd to say that the sports media haven't overrated Donovan McNabb because he's black. I'm sorry to have to say it; he is the quarterback for a team I root for. Instead of calling him overrated, I wish I could be admiring his Super Bowl rings. But the truth is that I and a great many other sportswriters have chosen for the past few years to see McNabb as a better player than he has been because we want him to be.

Rush Limbaugh didn't say Donovan McNabb was a bad quarterback because he is black. He said that the media have overrated McNabb because he is black, and Limbaugh is right. He didn't say anything that he shouldn't have said, and in fact he said things that other commentators should have been saying for some time now. I should have said them myself. I mean, if they didn't hire Rush Limbaugh to say things like this, what did they hire him for? To talk about the prevent defense?

Cop Shot His Son Three Times, because the Son Allegedly Did What?!

Police officer shot son for swapping his vodka with water, prosecutors say

FOX 4 Kansas City WDAF-TV

INDIAN HEAD PARK, Ill. -- A suburban Illinois police officer charged with shooting his son during an apparent argument over a bottle of vodka.

The judge in this case called the allegations "disturbing" and ordered the 48-year old cop to be held with bail no bail, according to WGN.

Prosecutors say the suspect, Indian Head Park Police Sergeant Ray Leuser, shot his son inside of his home on the Southwest Side.

A neighbor who did not want to be identified called Leuser a good neighbor and said she was shocked to hear what allegedly happened.

But in Cook County court Thursday, prosecutors painted a different picture of the police sergeant. They say Leuser called in sick for his shift two days ago. Instead of staying home, however, he went to a neighborhood 7-Eleven to purchase pizza, popcorn and vodka.

Later that day, his 22-year-old son, who sometimes stays in the basement of this home, drank the vodka and replaced it with water.

After a shouting match over the liquor, Leuser allegedly shot his son in the stomach, shoulders and thigh.

Police found shell casings and two .45 caliber guns in the home. He’s now charged with attempted murder.

The officer’s son remains in the hospital in critical condition, in need of at least two more surgeries to remove bullets from his body.

New York Times Operatives Richard Fausset (Alleged Reporter), Executive Editor Dean Baquet, and Managing Editor Joseph Kahn, Have Won the Duranty-Blair Award for Journalistic Infamy, for Fausset’s Rationalization of Black Supremacism in the 2017 Alabama Special Election

By Nicholas Stix

For over a generation, blacks in America have voted over 90% for Democrat candidates.

They have all sorts of phony-as-a-three-dollar-bill, self-serving rationalizations for this outrageous behavior, which is simply due to the Democrat Party being the party of black supremacism, and anti-white genocide.

No honest reporter would play along with blacks’ game, but Richard Fausset works for the New York Times. In order to work at a place like the Times, you have to take an IQ test and an integrity test. If you pass both, you fail; if you fail both, you pass.

It’s like getting hired to be a professor these days at Harvard.

So, in “Why Black Voters Backed Jones: ‘It’s a Matter of Character for Us’” (bottom of page), Fausset sucks up to black supremacists. Instead of asking on election night, ‘How is today’s election different from all other elections?,” he acts as stenographer to shameless, black supremacist liars.

“[Devon] Crawford, who is earning a master’s degree in divinity, was standing near the stage at the victory party for Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones, arguing that Moore’s Christianity did not square with the vision of faith shared by so many black civil rights leaders whose blood was shed on Alabama soil.

“Moore’s version, he said, ‘sanctifies the truth-making power of white men’ and was ‘really just a masquerade for white supremacy.’”
If Fausset were a real reporter, he would have asked Crawford to explain what it was about Roy Moore’s Christianity that was “really just a masquerade for white supremacy.”

But that would have caused a commotion. Devon Crawford, a theology student at the University of Chicago, could not possibly have given Fausset an honest answer. All that Crawford had was his genocidal racial hatred towards whites, and ridiculous bombast to seek and rationalize his own murderous, racial hatred.

I’m reminded of a night of riots in Baltimore in spring 2015. Fox News reporter Leland Vittert is reporting late at night from a site of looting.

Black supremacist city councilman Nick Mosby, the husband of black supremacist city attorney Marilyn Mosby, is talking to Vittert, as 10-20 feet away, right in front of them, young black men are looting stores.

The police can be seen standing down, one of two long blocks away, in plain sight of the looting.

Mosby tells Vittert of how Mosby and some other unidentified men had told police to back off, and let them stop the looting.

When Vittert responded by pointing out that the young men were looting right in front of them, Mosby threw up a hand in disgust, criticized Vittert as being unhelpful, and walked off.

Vittert tried interviewing masked rioters live—without daring to ask why they were masked—but it was impossible, He would tell them in advance that they couldn’t curse, but every single one of them would start cursing. He would move on from one to the next. When they weren’t cursing, they were muttering unintelligible nonsense about “frustration” and “questions.”

Vittert’s studio host, Megyn Kelly, was worried for his life.

The leftwing media were praising the rioters, and lying on their behalf.

Devon Crawford may have some big words at his disposal, but he’s as full of it as those Baltimore rioter/looters.

A legitimate reporter does not let an interviewee pee on his pants leg, and tell him it’s raining.

“The vision of faith shared by so many black civil rights leaders” is known under numerous names—Communism, Marxism, etc.—but Christianity, it ain’t.

“[Michael Nabors] said that they paid attention to the allegations brought by the women who said Moore had consorted with them when they were young.”

[“Consorted with” means had sex with, which is a bald-faced lie. They didn’t even say that. Thus, Nabors was lying, and Fausset was engaging in truth-laundering by consciously quoting a lie, as if it were true.]

“And he said they paid attention to Jones' most famous case as a prosecutor.

“‘Those four little girls are on their feet tonight at 16th Street Baptist Church, celebrating. They’re celebrating in spirit.”

If Fausset had any respect for facts, he’d have mentioned that Doug Jones got a jury conviction in that church bombing case on Thomas Blanton, who was almost certainly innocent. Jones had no case on him, no eyewitness testimony, circumstantial evidence, or forensic evidence. He convicted him based solely on his political sympathies.

Thus, when black Alabamians say they voted for Doug Jones based on his “character,” that translates as railroading a white man is a sign of “character.”

Fausset also asks no questions about how black voters, who are notoriously apathetic about voting for any white candidate, would flock to the polls for a white man in a special election on an odd date, in greater proportions than they had for “Barack Obama” (30%-28% of the Alabama voting totals).

My theory: They didn’t. The 30% proportion was due to massive vote fraud.

The obscene character of Fausset’s interviewees gives pause. They are saying that they have much higher moral standards than whites. That must be why crime rates are so much lower in black neighborhoods than in white ones, and blacks have such a heroic work ethic and tradition of self-reliance.

The Duranty-Blair Award recognizes those journalists whose work embodies the spirit of Walter Duranty and Jayson Blair, two of the most notorious “journalists” in the history of the Fourth Estate. It is no accident that both men worked for the New York Times.

Walter Duranty wrote a series of early 1930s dispatches from the Soviet Union, where he was Times Moscow bureau chief, in which he lied about the Ukrainian Holocaust, in which Stalin deliberately starved millions of Kulaks (farmers) to death, through a man-made famine. Instead of reporting the truth, Duranty reported that the peasants were happy and well-fed, and was rewarded for his lies with a Pulitzer Prize.

Jayson Blair (here, here, and here) was an early 2000s black affirmative action hire, who alternately plagiarized reporters at other newspapers, and fabricated articles out of whole cloth, all for stories set hundreds and even thousands of miles away, while he sat in New York City caf├ęs.

Other New York Times operatives who are Duranty-Blair laureates are Farhad Manjoo and Francis X. Clines.

Why Black Voters Backed Jones: “It’s a Matter of Character for Us”

Posted 11:28 a.m. yesterday


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Devon Crawford, 24, a black Alabamian, came home from the University of Chicago to vote against Republican Roy S. Moore in the special Senate election here.

Crawford, who is earning a master’s degree in divinity, was standing near the stage at the victory party for Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones, arguing that Moore’s Christianity did not square with the vision of faith shared by so many black civil rights leaders whose blood was shed on Alabama soil.
Moore’s version, he said, “sanctifies the truth-making power of white men” and was “really just a masquerade for white supremacy.”

African-American voters like Crawford played a crucial role in Moore’s stunning upset loss Tuesday. According to CNN exit polling, 30 percent of the electorate was African-American, with 96 percent of them voting for Jones. A remarkable 98 percent of black women voters supported Jones. The share of black voters Tuesday was higher than the share in 2008 and 2012, when Barack Obama was on the ballot.

Many black voters at Jones' jubilant victory celebration here echoed Crawford in saying they had long harbored a distaste for the fiery brand of evangelical politics that Moore had relied on to court working-class whites.
But many others said that the Jones campaign uncorked the intense feelings of alarm and distaste that many African-Americans harbor toward President Donald Trump, who had given Moore his full-throated endorsement in the campaign’s final days.

Joanice Thompson, 68, said that she and many of her fellow black voters were worried that Trumpism and a Republican-led Congress would chip away at protections for poor and working-class Americans. “But it’s a matter of character for us, too,” she said.

“Trump has disrespected the United States,” added Walladean Streeter, 68, a retired government worker. “How can you teach children in high school and college to respect their leaders when he’s acting like a child?”

Jones, 63, a former federal prosecutor, entered the race as a not particularly well-known face for many black voters here. But he had a deeply resonant story to tell them, having successfully prosecuted two white Klansmen for their roles in the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham that killed four African-American girls.

As Moore was hobbled by allegations that he had engaged in inappropriate relations with teenage girls while in his 30s, Jones' campaign coffers grew fat, and in late November his campaign manager said the team would try to make contact — by mail, phone or otherwise — with every likely black voter five or six times before Election Day.

The campaign and its allies looked for ways to reach out to black voters without stirring up white Republicans. Jones toured black churches in Selma with Rep. Terri Sewell, an African-American congresswoman. Other high-profile black supporters made appearances on his behalf, including Rep. John Lewis of Georgia and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey.

Toward the end of the campaign, Obama recorded a robocall for Jones, and former basketball star Charles Barkley, an Alabama native, urged voters to reject Moore at a campaign event on Monday. “We’ve got to, at some point, we got to stop looking like idiots to the nation,” Barkley said.

Michael Nabors, 54, and his wife Ella, 55, were among the black voters soaking up the Democratic good cheer after news agencies called the race for Jones.

“We knew the world was looking at us,” Michael Nabors said.

Nabors said that black voters were paying attention to Moore’s comments in September, in which he said that America was last “great” during the days when slavery was legal. He said they paid attention when Moore brought Stephen K. Bannon, the former Trump adviser, to campaign for him. He said that they paid attention to the allegations brought by the women who said Moore had consorted with them when they were young.

[“Consorted with” means had sex with, which is a bald-faced lie.]

And he said they paid attention to Jones' most famous case as a prosecutor.

“Those four little girls are on their feet tonight at 16th Street Baptist Church, celebrating,” he said. “They’re celebrating in spirit.”

Tavis No Smiley Today--with an Exclusive Photo of His Accusers!


Tavis Smiley

By Grand Rapids Anonymous
Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 11:15:00 P.M. EST

For Tavis to get nailed for sex stuff, he must have the volume of complaints that Conyers had against him. Imho.

POLITICO-PBS announced on Wednesday that it was halting distribution of the “Tavis Smiley” program pending an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against the host of the late-night talk show.

“Effective today, PBS has indefinitely suspended distribution of ‘Tavis Smiley,’ produced by TS Media, an independent production company,” PBS said in a statement.

The broadcaster added that it “immediately” moved to hire an external law firm to investigate “troubling allegations” about Smiley.

“The inquiry uncovered multiple, credible allegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS, and the totality of this information led to today’s decision,” the PBS statement said, citing interviews with witnesses and Smiley himself.

He is the latest high-profile public-broadcast figure to face allegations of sexual impropriety in recent months.

In November, Garrison Keillor, the longtime PBS broadcaster and host of “A Prairie Home Companion,” was dismissed from Minnesota Public Radio after an inquiry unearthed allegations of “inappropriate behavior” with a former colleague [sic].

Charlie Rose, the legendary journalist and host, was fired by PBS, CBS News and Bloomberg TV last month after eight women said Rose sexually harassed them during his time at his namesake show. The program, like Smiley’s, was independently produced and broadcast on PBS.

N.S.: This is corporate damage control. Circular logic notwithstanding, as with other such cases, PBS’ crisis management team told its suits that if they failed to cut off all relations to Smiley, it would be “proof” they maintained/supported/whatever a “hostile work environment” and would greatly expand their potential “exposure” in a trial.

Another "laugh" of the day:

Lesta Holt on "Negro Nightly News"—with a straight face that must have been frozen with botox, to keep it motionless—reported that Omorosa had left her job at the White House.

"Omorosa, who was previously a contestant on The Apprentice, is said to have either resigned or been forced out," said Holt.

Then the following was uttered by Lesta:

"But we don't know which one."

This coming from a news organization that had, in the last few weeks, reported so-called "exclusives" concerning the inner circle of the Trump administration, often citing irrefutable sources, that "Trump was called an idiot" by one of his cabinet members, ‘Trump had dealings with crooked foreigners,’ and many others—all with airtight sources.

But they can't figure out if Omorosa was fired or quit—nothing, nada, zip.

NO one's talking... hilarious.

Democrats Succeeded at Stealing the Alabama Special Election!

Fifty minutes ago, Roy Moore had a comfortable lead, 52.8-45.7% over Doug Jones.

But now, Jones has the lead, and it’s widening.

The Republican precincts gave in their numbers early, while in grand Democrat fashion, Democrat precincts waited to see how many votes they’d need to make up the difference.

Dem Chicago Mayor Richard Daley always said he needed to know how many votes he needed to come up with, and then he’d wait until all the Republican suburban counties had given their numbers in. Then he’d come along with his Crook County numbers a while later.

Our “Depraved Political Class”: The Intelligence Community Conspiracy Against Donald Trump

By An Old Friend

The quote in my subject line is a Mark Steyn phrase. Tar & feathers would be far too good for these scum.

N.S.: “Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories,’ declared the Times' Maureen Dowd.”

[Stix: Link]

“Paranoia seizes Trump's White House,’ reported Politico, noting the suspicion that ‘career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president.’” [Stix link: Politico operatives Alex Isenstadt and Kenneth P. Vogel.]

Donald Trump hasn’t been seized by “conspiracy theories,” but rather has responded to an actual and obvious conspiracy to destroy him.

There is some sort of Journalist II conspiracy against Donald Trump. First, the conspiracy existed to deny him the GOP nomination, then to win the election for Hillary Clinton, and then to undo the election in a seditious conspiracy.

In September, around the time that it became clear that Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton was a very sick woman, CNN operatives began referring to all statements of fact about Mrs. Clinton’s condition as “conspiracy theories.”

I gave CNN operative Kate Bolduan a Duranty-Blair Award for her use of the “conspiracy theory” deflection tactic on her show.
Members of Journolist II have also repeatedly insinuated that Trump is insane for supporting the “Birther” theory, whereby the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama” was born in Kenya.

While Birtherism is not a credible theory, what makes the Journolist II conspirators evil is that Trump did not start Birtherism—their champion, Hillary Clinton did.

How can Trump be insane for supporting Birtherism, while Hillary Clinton, who started it, is sane and decent, in the Journolist II conspirators’ eyes?

That was a rhetorical question.

Former top spy rethinks: Maybe we shouldn't have attacked a new president

"I was so deeply concerned about what a Trump presidency might look like from a national security perspective, [...] that I thought it extremely important to come out and say that," CIA Director Michael Morell said.

"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the "Never Trump" conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office.

"Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times' Maureen Dowd.

"Paranoia seizes Trump's White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president."

Actually, they were. "It's no mystery why Trump doesn't trust U.S. intelligence agencies," Bloomberg's Eli Lake wrote last month. "As the old saying goes: Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you. Trump understandably believes the intelligence agencies are out to get him."

Of course, leaders in the intelligence community would deny they are out to get the president. But in a remarkable new interview, one CIA veteran who served in the agency from 1980 to 2013, who briefed presidents on the most sensitive issues of the day, and is still a prominent voice in intelligence matters is at least conceding that he can understand why the president feels the way he does.

Michael Morell stayed out of politics when he served as the CIA's No. 2 official. He was the classic nonpartisan operative who served the office, and not the man. "I worked at this nonpolitical agency, bright red line between intelligence and policy, and intelligence and politics," Morell told Politico's Susan Glasser this week.

Until Trump. In August 2016, the retired-but-still-active-in-intelligence-matters Morell decided to abandon decades of nonpartisanship and come out in support of Hillary Clinton. In a New York Times op-ed, he praised Clinton's experience and called Trump a danger to the nation, a threat to its "foundational values," and an "unwitting agent" for Russia.

"I was so deeply concerned about what a Trump presidency might look like from a national security perspective, and believed that there was such a gap between Secretary Clinton and Donald Trump with regard to how well they would protect the country, that I thought it extremely important to come out and say that," Morell told Glasser.

Some of Morell's former colleagues in the intelligence community took the same step. Gen. Michael Hayden, a former CIA director, blasted Trump as Russia's "useful fool." Another former top CIA officer, Michael Vickers, pronounced Trump unfit. And the agency's then-director, John Brennan, openly clashed with Trump.

These were all men who came out of the nonpolitical tradition of American intelligence. And all chose, for the first time, to publicly take sides in a presidential campaign.

Of course, it's safe to say that each assumed Clinton would win. But when Trump prevailed, amazingly enough, he thought the intelligence agencies were against him.

"Let's put ourselves in Donald Trump's shoes," Morell said to Glasser. "So what does he see? Right? He sees a former director of CIA and a former director of NSA, Mike Hayden … criticizing him and his policies. Right? And he would rightfully have said, 'Huh, what's going on with the intelligence guys?'"

"And then he sees a former acting director and deputy director of CIA criticizing him and endorsing his opponent," Morell continued. "And then he gets his first intelligence briefing, after becoming the Republican nominee, and within 24 to 48 hours, there are leaks out of that that are critical of him and his then-national security adviser Mike Flynn."

"And so, this stuff starts to build, right? And he must have said to himself, 'What is it with these intelligence guys? Are they political?'"

The answer to that was simple: Yes, they were political. But the astonishing part of the Morell interview is his admission that at the time he did not stop to consider what was happening from Trump's perspective, even as the leaks continued when Trump took office. "He must have thought, 'Who are these guys?'" Morell said. "Are these guys out to get me? Is this a political organization?"

The first time Trump met the FBI's then-director, James Comey, was when the intelligence chiefs chose Comey to tell Trump, then the president-elect, about a collection of "salacious and unverified" (Comey's words) allegations about Trump, compiled by operatives working for the Clinton campaign, that has since become known as the Trump dossier. That surely got Trump off to a good start with the FBI's intelligence-gathering operation. It was also a clever way for the intel chiefs to push the previously-secret dossier into the public conversation, when news leaked that Comey had briefed the president on it.

And on and on it went. Could anyone blame the new president for believing the intelligence agencies were after him?

Trump's fellow New Yorker, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, warned the president against messing with the spy organizations. "Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you," Schumer said in January.

Indeed, they did. And now, Morell admits he went after the new president without even considering what that might mean. "I think there was a significant downside to those of us who became political," he told Glasser. "So, if I could have thought of that, would I have ended up in a different place? I don't know. But it's something I didn't think about."

Saturday Night Live: There was Nothing Wrong with What Donald Trump Said on the "Pussygate" Tape

By Nicholas Stix

Recall that on the Access Hollywood “Pussygate” tape that was released on October 5, 2016, Donald Trump was heard saying, “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”

Lorne Michaels is the leftwing producer of Saturday Night Live. He founded the show, back in 1975.

During the second season, I believe, Burt Reynolds was once the guest host. He performed in a sketch as himself, in which he shows up at the house of a family of fans. He starts kissing and pawing the pretty, teenaged daughter, in fornt of her parents, while bragging that when you’re a star you can get away with anything.

This appearance does not show up in Reynolds’ credits at, but that’s because that site has its share of gaps. I saw the episode twice.

At school I had no TV, and so I only watched it when I was visiting my mom. Funny thing was, I’d only watch the show a few times a year, and half of those times were always re-runs of the few other times I’d seen it.

So, why was it o.k. for Saturday Night Live to promote the same attitude that Donald Trump did? You can’t say, “Oh, that was 40 years ago,” because Trump’s seditionist enemies are trying to drive him from office over claims they are making about things he allegedly did 40 years ago.

It’s because he’s a Republican, if only nominally, and the racist Left refuses to permit a Republican to win the White House.

A Plague on Both Their Houses! Designing Woman Sues New Yorker in Massive Shakedown, Gets DPUSA Operative Ryan Lizza Fired, but Demands that “her privacy be respected”; Will Lizza Get the Death Penalty?


Ryan Lizza has been convicted of “improper sexual conduct”

The convict is usually seen in public wearing his cheaters

By Nicholas Stix

“Requests that her privacy be respected.”

You know, I’m not in the habit of using the sort of language that President Trump might use to describe women he doesn’t get along with, but that’s exactly what I’m thinking, regarding this character.

Irrespective of my attitude towards Ryan Lizza, who is a leftwing political hack, the notion that this designing woman, who looks to destroy a man’s life, and shake down his employer for millions, all while hiding in the shadows and depicting herself as a heroic figure, has a right to “privacy,” is obscene.

I’m going to do everything I can to determine her identity, and “out” her. I hope that someone beats me to it.

Her ability to hide her identity is central to her plot, and that of her liar, er, lawyer,

The New Yorker’s action, in firing Lizza, was just damage control. Its shysters surely advised corporate that if they didn’t immediately fire him, the designing woman would be able to argue that the magazine’s lack of sexual hysteria was proof of its “hostile work environment,” and Jezebel and her liar would likely pocket millions more.

That was what I posted at Law & Crime. But since I’m home, I can say that she’s a cunt.

I am aware of the poetic justice issues here. Ryan Lizza is a communist/socialist/whatever hack, who has sought to destroy Donald Trump, in order to suck up to his feminist allies. Meanwhile, feminists have long had the run of The New Yorker.

Wigdor LLP’s boss, Douglas Wigdor, is a mangina who lives off of feminist shakedowns. He probably figures he’ll make millions for himself and his client, while all the normal men will be run out of The New Yorker.
Win-win, right?

Wrong. The more likely result will be, a few years down the road, that The New Yorker will be shuttered.

Fine by me. Since the magazine that once was home to the likes of James Thurber and E.B. White has long since degenerated into first, a big bore, and then, just another DPUSA propaganda rag, the world at large wouldn’t even notice if it went under.

Some digital content company will then sell access to the archives of the magazine, from when it was readable.

At Law & Crime.

Meet Today’s Suicide Bomber: NYC Bomber is an “ISIS-Inspired,” 27-Year-Old Bangladeshi National (Photo)



By Nicholas Stix

At the New York Post.

The bomber reportedly told the cops he made the bomb at the electrical store where he works.

Good Day New York co-host Lori Stokes said the cops’ll be going to the bomber’s place of work.

How about they visit his mosque?! Oh, no, you can’t say that. That would be “racist” and “Islamophobic.”

Fox’ Good Day New York host, Rosanna Scotto: The police are “saying ‘We’ve got you; we want you to go about your day.’”

Oh, yeah. Just go about your day. It’s impossible to get anywhere in Manhattan, or much of the rest of the city, but you should go about your day, and not act as if what happened, happened.

Co-host Lori Stokes: “The suspect is of Bangladeshi descent.”

No, he’s a Bangladeshi. He’s not of Bangladeshi “descent.”

Imagine if Churchill had told the Brits sleeping in London Tube stations while their buildings were being bombed into rubble during the Blitz that nothing was happening that should change their lifestyles.

It was Bush II who started that nonsense.

Otherwise, only cops and worthless media permitted there.

God forbid, Scotto should be honest. Everyone knows it was a terrorist attack.

“Just look at the sheer volume of police officers here (at the Port Authority)”

By Nicholas Stix

ABC Eyewitness News told two conflicting stories virtually simultaneously. The in-studio host said the [terrorist] was “detained,” but the screen said “one person in custody.”

“The best thing is to not even think about commuting into Manhattan today”

By Nicholas Stix

That’s Heather O’Rourke, the in-studio traffic lady at ABC Eyewitness News.

She and a colleague say that no buses are heading to the Port Authority, and are instead being diverted to a parking lot on Tenth Avenue and 40th Street.

Even walking to work from some point in Midtown is non-starter, because of police “crowd control” measures.

Trying to jump on a subway “is a big headache.”

Studio host: Even if you don’t have to go to the Port Authority area, going to Manhattan is hopeless.

Non-Terrorist Device Thing Causes NYC Transit Nightmare

All buses and trains typically headed towards the Port Authority on Ninth Avenue are being diverted “toward the East,” to Seventh Avenue, as per ABC News helicopter traffic reporter, Shannon Sloan.

CNN “Expert”: “It doesn’t seem like terrorism”; ABC News New York: Several Injured

By Nicholas Stix

CNN “expert” Brynn Gingras said a few minutes ago that “sources who are speaking on the record say it doesn’t seem like terrorism.”

If people are speaking on the record, then who are they? On the record means with names. No names means off the record.

Is Gingras really talking to anyone? She has the “expert” mien down pat, but she's a big nothing.

CNN host Chris Cuomo was bsing, saying that what ordinary people consider “terrorism” is not what “experts” consider terrorism.

The Boss couldn’t stand the garbage on CNN, so she switched to ABC News.

Ray Kelly, the legendary former NYPD commissioner and fakestatter, is speaking now: “It doesn’t seem like the primary target.”

That statement is meaningless, unless it was a terrorist attack.

Now, ABC News is claiming that only one person beyond the [terrorist] was “injured.”
