Hillary had bought out the police chief in charge of investigating her alleged wrongdoings. Needless to say Andrew McCabe was NOT the object of a police investigation. If he had things may have turned out differently.
A shocking report revealed that Russian intelligence has asked the CIA why Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton just bought $137 million worth of illegal arms. The Kremlin is now requesting an immediate explanation for the purchase of arms and ammunition, with delivery marked “mid-November 2016”.
A report from the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) suggests that the Russian Security Council has authorized the sending of an emergency communiqué to the CIA.
The message is allegedly asking an explanation for the purchase of millions of dollars worth of arms by the Clinton Foundation to be delivered to the United States.

This is after the main elements of of the feared Viktor Bout’s international arms smuggling crime organization began arriving in the Republic of Albania, the only Muslim country in Europe.
Bout, who has been known by the moniker “Lord of War” in the West, is infamous for his workings with the CIA to smuggle arms throughout the world. That is until, 2011 when Clinton’s State Department had him jailed.
His dealings could have also included the controversial arms transferred arms transfer in Libya facilitated by Obama and Hillary Clinton.
According to the Daily Mail, the transfer occurred despite a UN ban and resulted in the “accidental” arming ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the perpetrators of the Benghazi attack.
Despite being a citizen of the Russian Federation, the Kremlin had no qualms about Bout being jailed. However they did express concern when US Federal Judge Shira Scheindlin said he should have had a reduced sentence, RT reported.
The reduction of Bout’s sentence also led, on October 26, to him being transferred from a maximum security facility to the “country club” atmosphere of the US Federal Prison System.
Coinciding with the mysterious prison transfer, the report also noted the transfer of $137.7 million from the Clinton Foundation to the Socialist Party of Albania (SPA).
What could be the purpose of this massive arms purchase by Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation? Does the delivery coinciding with the election month in the United States also hold some sort of significance? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
In 2013, a BIRN investigation revealed that the then Prime Minister, Sali Berisha, spent taxpayers’ money on a smear campaign in the US and Albania directed against his political opponent – Rama – which played well with US Republicans………………………..
Hillary Clinton did two huge favors for Morocco during her tenure as secretary of state while the Clinton Foundation accepted up to $28 million in donations from the country’s ruler, King Mohammed VI, according to new information obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group.
Clinton and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Lisa Jackson tried to shut down the Florida-based Mosaic Company in 2011, operator of America’s largest phosphate mining facility.
Jackson’s close ties and loyalty to the Clintons were revealed when she joined the Clinton Foundation’s board of directors in 2013, just months after she left the EPA. Jackson is also close to John Podesta, Clinton’s national campaign chairman.
Morocco’s state-owned phosphate company, OCP, would ostensibly have benefited from Jackson’s move to shut down Mosaic. Mohammed donated up to $15 million to the Clinton Foundation through OCP.

Azerbaijan’s crackdown on civil society must not be tolerated, international NGOs tell industry transparency body
October 25, 2016
Prague, Geneva, London – The Azerbaijani government’s relentless repression of civil society should disqualify the country from participating in the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), 18 international groups wrote in a letter sent on Thursday (October 20) to members of the EITI board.
The EITI board is expected to review Azerbaijan’s membership status tomorrow (Wednesday, October 26), after it has already been downgraded from ‘compliant’ to ‘candidate’ in April 2015 in light of the country’s appalling track record on human rights.
A year and a half later, it is evident that the Azeri government remains defiant, and therefore the international groups urge the board members to suspend Azerbaijan’s membership until the government ensures the ability of activists and rights defenders to operate freely.
The EITI seeks to ensure, among others, an enabling environment for civil society in member countries, but in the letter, the organisations warn that Azerbaijan’s autocratic government continues its ruthless crack down on activists and critics in the country. The letter states that bank accounts of many Azerbaijani NGOs remain frozen, international travel bans have been imposed on a number of NGO leaders, and civil society groups are effectively barred from accessing overseas funding.
Since the October 2015 visit of EITI Chairwoman Clare Short to Azerbaijan, Baku has taken some steps to improve the situation, but in light of the renewed crackdown on civil society in the country in recent months they amount to little more than lip service. Continued government harassment and persecution of NGOs and activists in Azerbaijan, including imprisonment on trumped up charges, prevents them from meaningfully participating in the EITI process.
Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev and his family have built their fortunes and political clout on the country’s oil and gas riches. Now government is promoting the development of the Southern Gas Corridor, a 3500 kilometer long chain of pipelines meant to deliver natural gas to Europe from Azerbaijan’s Shah Deniz offshore field.
Some of the world’s largest international financial institutes – including the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the European Investment Bank, and the World Bank – are currently considering extending loans to parts of the project at the excess of over USD 3 billion. These multilateral development banks’ own policies oblige them to only support projects that are in line with international public participation and human rights standards.
If the EITI board decides to suspend Azerbaijan’s membership, the banks will no longer be able to ignore the domestic human rights situation in the country.
“To successfully implement the corrective actions outlined by the EITI, the government must demonstrate political will to introduce genuine reforms and create the conditions for developing civil society in the country,” the letter states.

Die taz – das Hausblatt der Grünen – vertritt und unterstützt am 21. August 2015 genau das was die Falken in Washington wollen. Eine Ines Kappert stellt abenteuerlichste Behauptungen auf:
Jeder Satz wissentlich eine vorsätzliche Lüge. Selbst die taz hatte damals 2013 über die „False Flag“-Operation geschrieben. Zwei Jahre später schreibt das gleiche Blatt wider alle Tatsachen dreist: „Zwei Jahre ist es her, dass das Assad-Regime einen Vorort von Damaskus mit Giftgas beschoss.“ Spielt doch keine Rolle, dass alle seriösen Untersuchungen eben das nicht bestätigten und neben der Logik auch die Fakten auf eine Provokation der Assad-Gegner hinweisen.
Müßig, den ganzen Kappert-Unfug zu sezieren (z. B. war es Lawrow der blitzschnell reagierte und den USA den Angriffs-Anlass nahm); außerhalb des Mainstreams und der NATO-Anhänger ist die taz schon lange keine Erwähnung als Informationsquelle mehr Wert.
Doch wenn eine deutsche Zeitung offen einen eklatanten Kriegsaufruf zum Bombardieren von Zivilisten veröffentlicht, schweigt des Sängers Höflichkeit nicht länger. Ja, Bombardierung von Zivilisten. Wir reden von Forderungen wie man sie nur vom Springer-Stiefel Herzinger (Welt, WamS) kennt.
das Libyen-Drama vergessen oder wollen sie es nun auch für Syrien vorsätzlich und absichtlich? Die dritte Möglichkeit – pure Dummheit – schließe ich aus.
O-Ton: Zivile Opfer politisch notwendig
Nie werden wir vergessen wie die Obergrüne Roth mit einem der syrischen Scharfmacher, der Waffen für den offenen Krieg in Syrien forderte, durch die Konzern- und Staatsmedien tingelte. Jene Claudia Roth, die eine Flugverbotszone über Libyen forderte, die zehntausende Menschen das Leben kostete. Die Fotos toter libyscher Kinder – vergessen? Roth wusste von einem Luftkrieg der beschönigend „Flugverbotszone“ genannt wird, im Voraus „dass sie zu hohen Verlusten unter der Zivilbevölkerung führen könnte und sie militärisch nur eine geringe Wirkung entfalten wird.“ und verlangte sie trotzdem: „.. halten sie politisch für notwendig.
Heute fordert das B90/Grüne-Zentralorgan ein Libyen 3.0. Doch Tausende Mitläufer kaufen dieses Blatt. Millionen wählen die kalten und heißen Krieger. Hoffen diese Feiglinge auf einen neuen Persilschein und nehmen dafür wieder Millionen Tote in Kauf?
Haben die nicht begriffen woher all die Flüchtlinge kommen – deren Aufnahme uns die Menschlichkeit gebietet – und dass eine „Flugverbotszone“ für Hunderttausende deren Unglück einleitete?
Wer Flugverbotszonen fordert – das beweist die traurige Praxis – verursacht mehr Leid und mehr Flüchtlinge.
Wer Flugverbotszonen fordert – spielt das Spiel des Imperiums, das seit 1945 40 Millionen Tote verbrochen hat.

Die USA und deren Verbündete werden alles tun, um echte Demokratie in der arabischen Welt zu verhindern. Der Grund ist simpel: Überall in der Region glaubt die Mehrheit der Bevölkerung, dass die USA die größte Bedrohung für ihre Interessen sind. Die Opposition gegen die US-Politik ist so enorm, dass eine beträchtliche Mehrheit sogar der Meinung ist, die Region wäre sicherer, wenn der Iran im Besitz von Atomwaffen wäre. Im wichtigsten Land – Ägypten – glauben dies 80 Prozent. In anderen Ländern lassen sich ähnliche Zahlen finden. Nur Wenige in der Region sehen im Iran eine Bedrohung – rund 10 Prozent. Es ist offensichtlich, dass die USA und deren Verbündete keine Regierungen wollen, die auf den Willen des Volkes hören, denn falls dies geschieht, werden die USA nicht nur die Kontrolle über diese Region verlieren sondern auch hinausbefördert werden. Natürlich wäre ein solches Resultat für sie nicht zu tolerieren.

Former US president Bill Clinton and his wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, are part of a “crime family,” says a former top FBI official, in the wake of the bureau’s reopening of the former first lady’s email case.
James Kallstrom, the FBI’s former assistant director, told a radio show on Sunday that the Clintons were involved in organized crime and that their family foundation was a “cesspool.”
“The Clintons, that’s a crime family, basically. It’s like organized crime. I mean the Clinton Foundation is a cesspool,” said Kallstrom, who once headed the FBI’s office in New York City.
Founded in 2001, the Clinton Foundation has come under bipartisan fire for accepting foreign donations in exchange for influence.
The former FBI official also took a jibe at Attorney General Loretta Lynch for what he referred to as impeding the federal investigation into Clinton’s email case.
Earlier this year, the Democratic nominee was cleared of all charges related to her possible mishandling of classified information, after undergoing a long-running federal investigation over her use of a private email server to exchange thousands of emails during her tenure as secretary of state between 2009 and 2013.
At one point, days before the investigation was concluded, Lynch raised eyebrows by privately meeting with Bill Clinton.
Kallstrom said that Lynch would not have allowed a “real” investigation into the case.
“The problem here is this investigation was never a real investigation,” he said. “That’s the problem. They never had a grand jury empanelled, and the reason they never had a grand jury empanelled, I’m sure, is Loretta Lynch would not go along with that.”
“God forbid we put someone like that in the White House,” Kallstrom said of Clinton.
Special Report: In the Watergate era, liberals warned about U.S. intelligence agencies manipulating U.S. politics, but now Trump-hatred has blinded many of them to this danger becoming real, as ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern notes.
By Ray McGovern
Besides this wildly improbable storyline, there were flat denials from WikiLeaks, which distributed the supposedly “hacked” Democratic emails, that the information came from Russia – and there was the curious inability of the National Security Agency to use its immense powers to supply any technical evidence to support the Russia-hack scenario.
The Trump Shock
Russia-gate is becoming FBI-gate, thanks to the official release of unguarded text messages between loose-lipped FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok and his garrulous girlfriend, FBI lawyer Lisa Page. (Ten illustrative texts from their exchange appear at the end of this article.)
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the third presidential debate in 2016, during which Clinton called Trump Vladimir Putin’s “puppet.”
Despite his former job as chief of the FBI’s counterintelligence section, Strzok had the naive notion that texting on FBI phones could not be traced. Strzok must have slept through “Security 101.” Or perhaps he was busy texting during that class. Girlfriend Page cannot be happy at being misled by his assurance that using office phones would be a secure way to conduct their affair(s).
It would have been unfortunate enough for Strzok and Page to have their adolescent-sounding texts merely exposed, revealing the reckless abandon of star-crossed lovers hiding (they thought) secrets from cuckolded spouses, office colleagues, and the rest of us. However, for the never-Trump plotters in the FBI, the official release of just a fraction (375) of almost 10,000 messages does incalculably more damage than that.
We suddenly have documentary proof that key elements of the U.S. intelligence community were trying to short-circuit the U.S. democratic process. And that puts in a new and dark context the year-long promotion of Russia-gate. It now appears that it was not the Russians trying to rig the outcome of the U.S. election, but leading officials of the U.S. intelligence community, shadowy characters sometimes called the Deep State.
More of the Strzok-Page texting dialogue is expected to be released. And the Department of Justice Inspector General reportedly has additional damaging texts from others on the team that Special Counsel Robert Mueller selected to help him investigate Russia-gate.
Besides forcing the removal of Strzok and Page, the text exposures also sounded the death knell for the career of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, in whose office some of the plotting took place and who has already announced his plans to retire soon.
But the main casualty is the FBI’s 18-month campaign to sabotage candidate-and-now-President Donald Trump by using the Obama administration’s Russia-gate intelligence “assessment,” electronic surveillance of dubious legality, and a salacious dossier that could never pass the smell test, while at the same time using equally dubious techniques to immunize Hillary Clinton and her closest advisers from crimes that include lying to the FBI and endangering secrets.
Ironically, the Strzok-Page texts provide something that the Russia-gate investigation has been sorely lacking: first-hand evidence of both corrupt intent and action. After months of breathless searching for “evidence” of Russian-Trump collusion designed to put Trump in the White House, what now exists is actual evidence that senior officials of the Obama administration colluded to keep Trump out of the White House – proof of what old-time gumshoes used to call “means, motive and opportunity.”
Even more unfortunately for Russia-gate enthusiasts, the FBI lovers’ correspondence provides factual evidence exposing much of the made-up “Resistance” narrative – the contrived storyline that The New York Times and much of the rest of the U.S. mainstream media deemed fit to print with little skepticism and few if any caveats, a scenario about brilliantly devious Russians that not only lacks actual evidence – relying on unverified hearsay and rumor – but doesn’t make sense on its face.
The Russia-gate narrative always hinged on the preposterous notion that Russian President Vladimir Putin foresaw years ago what no American political analyst considered even possible, the political ascendancy of Donald Trump. According to the narrative, the fortune-telling Putin then risked creating even worse tensions with a nuclear-armed America that would – by all odds – have been led by a vengeful President Hillary Clinton.
Besides this wildly improbable storyline, there were flat denials from WikiLeaks, which distributed the supposedly “hacked” Democratic emails, that the information came from Russia – and there was the curious inability of the National Security Agency to use its immense powers to supply any technical evidence to support the Russia-hack scenario.
But the shock of Trump’s election and the decision of many never-Trumpers to cast their lot with the Resistance led to a situation in which any prudent skepticism or demand for evidence was swept aside.
President Donald Trump delivering his inaugural address on Jan. 20, 2017. (Screen shot from Whitehouse.gov)
So, on Jan. 6, 2017, President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper released an evidence-free report that he said was compiled by “hand-picked” analysts from the CIA, FBI and NSA, offering an “assessment” that Russia and President Putin were behind the release of the Democratic emails in a plot to help Trump win the presidency.
Despite the extraordinary gravity of the charge, even New York Times correspondent Scott Shane noted that proof was lacking. He wrote at the time: “What is missing from the [the Jan. 6] public report is what many Americans most eagerly anticipated: hard evidence to back up the agencies’ claims that the Russian government engineered the election attack. … Instead, the message from the agencies essentially amounts to ‘trust us.’”
But the “assessment” served a useful purpose for the never-Trumpers: it applied an official imprimatur on the case for delegitimizing Trump’s election and even raised the long-shot hope that the Electoral College might reverse the outcome and possibly install a compromise candidate, such as former Secretary of State Colin Powell, in the White House. Though the Powell ploy fizzled, the hope of somehow removing Trump from office continued to bubble, fueled by the growing hysteria around Russia-gate.
Virtually all skepticism about the evidence-free “assessment” was banned. For months, the Times and other newspapers of record repeated the lie that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had concurred in the conclusion about the Russian “hack.” Even when that falsehood was belatedly acknowledged, the major news outlets just shifted the phrasing slightly to say that U.S. intelligence agencies had reached the Russian “hack” conclusion. Shane’s blunt initial recognition about the lack of proof disappeared from the mainstream media’s approved narrative of Russia-gate.
Doubts about the Russian “hack” or dissident suggestions that what we were witnessing was a “soft coup” were scoffed at by leading media commentators. Other warnings from veteran U.S. intelligence professionals about the weaknesses of the Russia-gate narrative and the danger of letting politicized intelligence overturn a constitutional election were also brushed aside in pursuit of the goal of removing Trump from the White House.
It didn’t even seem to matter when new Russia-gate disclosures conflicted with the original narrative that Putin had somehow set Trump up as a Manchurian candidate. All normal journalistic skepticism was jettisoned. It was as if the Russia-gate advocates started with the conclusion that Trump must go and then made the facts fit into that mold, but anyone who noted the violations of normal investigative procedures was dismissed as a “Trump enabler” or a “Moscow stooge.”
The Text Evidence
But then came the FBI text messages, providing documentary evivdence that key FBI officials involved in the Russia-gate investigation were indeed deeply biased and out to get Trump, adding hard proof to Trump’s longstanding lament that he was the subject of a “witch hunt.”
Peter Strzok, who served as a Deputy Assistant Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, second in command of counterintelligence.
Justified or not, Trump’s feeling of vindication could hardly be more dangerous — particularly at a time when the most urgent need is to drain some testosterone from the self-styled Stable-Genius-in-Chief and his martinet generals.
On the home front, Trump, his wealthy friends, and like-thinkers in Congress may now feel they have an even wider carte blanche to visit untold misery on the poor, the widow, the stranger and other vulnerable humans. That was always an underlying danger of the Resistance’s strategy to seize on whatever weapons were available – no matter how reckless or unfair – to “get Trump.”
Beyond that, Russia-gate has become so central to the Washington establishment’s storyline that there appears to be no room for second-thoughts or turning back. The momentum is such that some Democrats and the media never-Trumpers can’t stop stoking the smoke of Russia-gate and holding out hope against hope that it will somehow justify Trump’s impeachment.
Yet, the sordid process of using legal/investigative means to settle political scores further compromises the principle of the “rule of law” and integrity of journalism in the eyes of many Americans. After a year of Russia-gate, the “rule of law” and “pursuit of truth” appear to have been reduced to high-falutin’ phrases for political score-setttling, a process besmirched by Republicans in earlier pursuits of Democrats and now appearing to be a bipartisan method for punishing political rivals regardless of the lack of evidence.
Peter Strzok, der als stellvertretender Direktor des Federal Bureau of Investigation diente, zweiter Kommandant von Spionageabwehr.
Peter Strzok (pronounced “struck”) has an interesting pedigree with multiple tasks regarding both Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump. As the FBI’s chief of counterespionage during the investigation into then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized use of a personal email server for classified information, Strzok reportedly changed the words “grossly negligent” (which could have triggered legal prosecution) to the far less serious “extremely careless” in FBI Director James Comey’s depiction of Clinton’s actions. This semantic shift cleared the way for Comey to conclude just 20 days before the Democratic National Convention began in July 2016, that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring charges against Mrs. Clinton.
Then, as Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division, Strzok led the FBI’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election of 2016. It is a safe bet that he took a strong hand in hand-picking the FBI contingent of analysts that joined “hand-picked” counterparts from CIA and NSA in preparing the evidence-free, Jan. 6, 2017 assessment accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of interfering in the election of 2016. (Although accepted in Establishment groupthink as revealed truth, that poor excuse for analysis reflected the apogee of intelligence politicization — rivaled only by the fraudulent intelligence on “weapons of mass destruction“ in Iraq 15 years ago.)
In June and July 2017 Strzok was the top FBI official working on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia, but was taken off that job when the Justice Department IG learned of the Strzok-Page text-message exchange and told Mueller.
There is no little irony in the fact that what did in the FBI sweathearts was their visceral disdain for Mr. Trump, their cheerleading-cum-kid-gloves treatment of Mrs. Clinton and her associates, their 1950-ish, James Clapperesque attitude toward Russians as “almost genetically driven” to evil, and their (Strzok/Page) elitist conviction that they know far better what is good for the country than regular American citizens, including those “deplorables” whom Clinton said made up half of Trump’s supporters.
But Strzok/Page had no idea that their hubris, elitism and scheming would be revealed in so tangible a way. Worst of all for them, the very thing that Strzok, in particular, worked so hard to achieve — the sabotaging of Trump and immunization of Mrs. Clinton and her closest advisers is now coming apart at the seams.
Congress: Oversee? or Overlook?
At this point, the $64 question is whether the various congressional oversight committees will remain ensconced in their customarily cozy role as “overlook” committees, or whether they will have the courage to attempt to carry out their Constitutional duty. The latter course would mean confronting a powerful Deep State and its large toolbox of well-practiced retaliatory techniques, including J. Edgar Hoover-style blackmail on steroids, enabled by electronic surveillance of just about everything and everyone. Yes, today’s technology permits blanket collection, and “Collect Everything” has become the motto.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller.
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, with almost four decades of membership in the House and Senate, openly warned incoming President Trump in January 2017 against criticizing the U.S. intelligence community because U.S. intelligence officials have “six ways from Sunday to get back at you” if you are “dumb” enough to take them on.
Thanks to the almost 10,000 text messages between Strzok and Page, only a small fraction of which were given to Congress four weeks ago, there is now real evidentiary meat on the bones of the suspicions that there indeed was a “deep-state coup” to “correct” the outcome of the 2016 election. We now know that the supposedly apolitical FBI officials had huge political axes to grind. The Strzok-Page exchanges drip with disdain for Trump and those deemed his smelly deplorable supporters. In one text message, Strzok expressed visceral contempt for those working-class Trump voters, writing on Aug. 26, 2016, “Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support. … it’s scary real down here.”
The texts even show Strzok warning of the need for an “insurance policy” to thwart Trump on the off-chance that his poll numbers closed in on those of Mrs. Clinton.
An Aug. 6, 2016 text message, for example, shows Page giving her knight in shining armor strong affirmation: “Maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace [Trump].” That text to Strzok includes a link to a David Brooks column in The New York Times, in which Brooks concludes with the clarion call: “There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame.”
Another text message shows that other senior government officials – alarmed at the possibility of a Trump presidency – joined the discussion. In an apparent reference to an August 2016 meeting with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Strzok wrote to Page on Aug. 15, 2016, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.” Strzok added, “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event that you die before you’re 40.”
Senate Judiciary Committee chair Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, says he will ask Strzok to explain the “insurance policy” when he calls him to testify. What seems already clear is that the celebrated “Steele Dossier” was part of the “insurance,” as was the evidence-less legend that Russia hacked the DNC’s and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails and gave them to WikiLeaks.
If congressional investigators have been paying attention, they already know what former weapons inspector Scott Ritter shared with Veteran intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) colleagues this week; namely, that Fusion GPS’s Glenn Simpson, who commissioned the Russia dossier using Democratic Party money, said he reached out to Steele after June 17, just three days before Steele’s first report was published, drawing on seven sources.
“There is a snowball’s chance in hell that this is raw intelligence gathered by Steele; rather he seems to have drawn on a single ‘trusted intermediary’ to gather unsubstantiated rumor already in existence.”
Another VIPS colleague, Phil Giraldi, writing out of his own experience in private sector consulting, added: “The fact that you do not control your sources frequently means that they will feed you what they think you want to hear. Since they are only doing it for money, the more lurid the details the better, as it increases the apparent value of the information. The private security firm in turn, which is also doing it for the money, will pass on the stories and even embroider them to keep the client happy and to encourage him to come back for more. When I read the Steele dossier it looked awfully familiar to me, like the scores of similar reports I had seen which combined bullshit with enough credible information to make the whole product look respectable.”
It is now widely known that the Democrats ponied up the “insurance premiums,” so to speak, for former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele’s “dossier” of lurid — but largely unproven — “intelligence” on Trump and the Russians. If, as many have concluded, the dossier was used to help justify a FISA warrant to snoop on the Trump campaign, those involved will be in deep kimchi, if congressional overseers do their job.
How, you might ask, could Strzok and associates undertake these extra-legal steps with such blithe disregard for the possible consequences should they be caught? The answer is easy; Mrs. Clinton was a shoo-in, remember? This was just extra insurance with no expectation of any “death benefit” ever coming into play — save for Trump’s electoral demise in November 2016. The attitude seemed to be that, if abuse of the FISA law should eventually be discovered — there would be little interest in a serious investigation by the editors of The New York Times and other anti-Trump publications and whatever troubles remained could be handled by President Hillary Clinton.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, who chairs the Judiciary Subcommittee of Judiciary on Crime and Terrorism, joined Sen. Grassley in signing the letter referring Christopher Steele to the Justice Department to investigate what appear to be false statements about the dossier. In signing, Graham noted the “many stop signs the Department of Justice ignored in its use of the dossier.” The signature of committee ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, however, was missing — an early sign that a highly partisan battle royale is in the offing. On Tuesday, Feinstein unilaterally released a voluminous transcript of Glenn Simpson’s earlier testimony and, as though on cue, Establishment pundits portrayed Steele as a good source and Fusion GPS’s Glenn Simpson as a victim.
The Donnybrook is now underway; the outcome uncertain.

Arab countries have begun an “investments offensive” on BiH, in order to build several resorts but also residences. The investors are coming from different countries and it seems that BiH has become a very interesting location for Arab countries.
Recently, the public was informed that less than 50 kilometers from Sarajevo was built an Arab resort. The place is surrounded by a fence and it is not entirely finished, but rumors says that the entrance for BiH citizens will be banned during summer season since clients from the Gulf will spend their holidays in accordance with their habits and Islam. The settlement currently consists of about 160 houses and a number of supporting facilities, with a large lake in the middle. The construction of new houses and facilities is underway. Several media reported that most of the houses have already been sold and the buyers are exclusively Arabs.
However, during the summer the town was full of Arabs, and Bosnians could not get in, except for those who work there, such as waiters, maids, security… It will be the same next summer.
According to unnamed sources, homeowners are Arabs, and they do not want to mix with local population. They have their own tradition and habits when it comes to clothing, behavior, prayer, and want to feel comfortable. Houses owners and their guests will be in the environment similar to their countries, except the fact that the climate is not even near the desert. They will be spending the summer months in a pleasant climate and then return to their homes.
The whole project seems like a big secret and investors didn’t want to comment that houses were sold at 150 000 to 160 000 Euros and that they were not offered for sale or advertised in Bosnia, but only in Kuwait, the country of the owner of the settlement.
The construction of the complex which will provide accommodation for 1,125 tourists began in 2013 and cost about 50 million BAM (25 million Euros)….
Another investment will be implemented by the Qatar investors. It was announced by the Ambassador of Qatar to BiH, Rashid Al-Kawari, who said that this country intends to build a students’ dormitory.
“We are currently in the process of deciding on the construction of a dormitory in Sarajevo. The dormitory will accommodate those who study at the University of Sarajevo and are not able to pay for accommodation”, Al-Kawari said. This investment would be worth around five million EUR.
Also, Arabic company Green Valley International Real Estate announced its third project in BiH – residential settlement Salam City with 300 villas. The company based in Dubai and one of the leaders in the region announced that they will invest 40 million Euros in the construction of luxury villas and various other facilities on an area of 134,000 square meters in Donja Vogosca, again near Sarajevo. The third project of Green Valley in BiH includes four-star hotel and a number of other facilities for recreation and luxury life, such as outdoor pools, a medical care center, restaurants, cafes, shops, mosques, tennis and basketball courts. The new settlement is part of the strategy of the company to offer an opportunity to the citizens of the Gulf States to invest in real estate outside their country….
The Ploiesti bureau of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) has seized a building belonging to former prime minister Victor Ponta in the corruption case related to former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s visit to Romania in 2012.
According to the prosecutors, Ponta gained political capital by meeting Tony Blair in 2012. The visit, which had a cost of some EUR 220,000, was apparently paid for by businessman Sebastian Ghita, who thus secured his nomination for an MP seat on the lists of the Social Democratic Party (PSD). Ponta was head of PSD at that time.
The building represents the only asset that has been seized in this case so far. According to the most recent wealth statement of Victor Ponta, he owns, together with his wife, the MEP Daciana Sarbu, two apartments in Bucharest and a holiday house in Cornu, Prahova county. Daciana also owns a house in Cornu.
