FISA Applications Did Indeed Omit Game-Changing Facts

When DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his report last month on the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server he said that, although it was clear that FBI officials harbored strong anti-Trump bias, he could not find evidence that their bias affected the key decisions in the case.

Well, here is your evidence, Mr. Horowitz:
"Tom Fitton, founder and editor of Judicial Watch, confirmed they received documents (at 5:30 on a Saturday evening) related to the FBI’s application for the FISA warrant (and renewals) to surveil former Trump foreign policy advisor, Carter Page. Although they were heavily redacted, including entire pages, they do indeed indicate that the Steele Dossier was the “major component.” The documents can be viewed here
"Fitton put out a statement Saturday night: "These documents are heavily redacted but seem to confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the courts in withholding the material information that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC were behind the “intelligence” used to persuade the courts to approve the FISA warrants that targeted the Trump team. Given this corruption, President Trump should intervene and declassify the heavily redacted material."
The document states: “The FBI speculates to the FISA court that the U.S. person was likely looking for information that could be used to discredit candidate 1’s campaign.” It omits the single, most significant fact about the dossier, which is who exactly was behind it. 
The FBI, the nation’s top law enforcement agency, left out the game-changing information that the Dossier was bank-rolled by the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the DNC, which Hillary had bailed out financially and essentially controlled. 
They left out the fact that Glenn Simpson, co-founder of opposition research firm Fusion GPS, commissioned former British spy Christopher Steele, to put together the dossier. 
And they failed to say that Nellie Ohr, the wife of senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, was hired to help investigate then-candidate Donald Trump. She was especially hired because of whom she was married to. This is not speculation. Glenn Simpson acknowledged this in a court document, saying that they “contracted with her to help our company with its research and analysis of Mr. Trump.” He also said that Bruce Ohr met with Steele during the 2016 campaign. 
Had the FBI revealed the true origin of the document on the FISA warrant application, it would never have been approved. FBI officials were keenly aware of this, so they hid information. Following the release of the DOJ documents, Carter Page said, “I’m having trouble finding any small bit of this document that rises above complete ignorance and/or insanity.”

Trump DOJ To Go After Affirmative Action in Higher Ed.

NewsBusters - On Wednesday, the network morning shows were all deeply troubled by a New York Times report that the Trump Justice Department was preparing to defend the civil rights of white students applying to college. At the top of ABC’s Good Morning America, co-host George Stephanopoulos sounded the alarm: 
“Breaking overnight, new reports the Trump administration is taking on Affirmative Action, preparing to investigate whether colleges are discriminating against white students.” 
Minutes later, correspondent Mary Bruce breathlessly declared:
“Overnight, The New York Times is reporting that the Justice Department is working on a plan to investigate and potentially sue universities for admission policies that are found to discriminate against white applicants'. ....critics say this cuts to the core of efforts to expand educational opportunities for minority students and could be a sign that the administration is changing course on a key civil rights issue.”

The problem with this version of the story is that the DOJ is actually looking into an unresolved discrimination suit from the Obama years brought by 64 Asian students for having points deducted from entrance exams simply for being Asian, while other groups have points added. But that truth points the finger of discrimination in the wrong direction for the media. 

A quick reading of the constitution says we are are equal under the law. Why should someone get extra points toward admission because of skin color? Are we to consider them inferior? And why are some docked points because they are smarter then most? Higher Education is not a civil right. IT"S A PRIVILEGE. A privilege you should earn by hard work.  Let the cream rise to the top.  

The Supreme Court has already ruled that schools cannot use racial quotas in admissions, but many of them do it anyways. The fact that race is being used to determine a student’s admission to a college is against the law and should be stopped. The only way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.

Self Loathing Hate Group to Advise Obama Admin on Domestic Terrorism

There is no doubt that in America, there are many who are calling good evil and evil good. At the top of that list is the Southern Poverty Law Center. Now, the SPLC wants to identify what they call "haters" on their little hate list for radicals in our society to target, whether they are individuals or organizations. Now they are teaming up with the corrupt and criminal Obama administration in order to advise the domestic terrorists in our government on violent extremism, and at the top of their list are Christians and patriots.
While the SPLC targets individuals and organizations for speaking out against abortion, sodomy, Islam, the New Black Panthers calling them "haters," all these groups are simply doing is speaking the truth on a particular subject. That's called free speech, but apparently, the SPLC can't stand the truth and so they engage in slander against a variety of people.
Now, the SPLC will be teaming up with the Obama Department of (in)Justice, led by Constitution violating Loretta Lynch and seek to track and coordinate investigations into "domestic terrorism." 
This announcement was made on October 14 by Assistant Attorney General John Carlin at George Washington University. While Carlin did mention Islam on two occasions in the speech, his emphasis was on "anti-government animus, eco-radicalism, and racism."  
"The new DT Counsel will not only help ensure that DT cases are properly coordinated but also will play a key role in our headquarters-level efforts to identify trends to help shape our strategy, and to analyze legal gaps or enhancements required to ensure we can combat these threats."
Since when should the American people trust lying organizations like the SPLC to advise our government on anything? And, of course, Carlin is one who buys into the maligning and slander of the SPLC's Mark Potock's "hate groups."

Ready for Eric Holder 2.0?

Look for one of the first duties, hopefully after the president gets through licking his wounds from mid-term election results, is to send his nomination to the hill for replacement of the corrupt out going Attorney General, Eric Holder.  Speculation is it will be Thomas Perez, the present Secretary of Labor.  Yeah, the same Labor Dept. that gave us phony job numbers before the 2012 election, and almost unbelievable fairytale numbers just in time for the 2014 mid-terms. Imagine that!

He's a perfect tool for Obama's upcoming assault on America's Immigration Laws and enforcement on the states.  Look for a swift attempt at confirmation while Democrats still hold chairmanship of committees in the Senate. 

Below is my post from March 2013 when Mr. Perez was up for conformation for the Labor Dept.  It says all that needs to be said: it need not be re-written. 

More Rot From the Inside

Keeping with his theme of rotting America from the inside, Obama plans to move another dose of leftist disease into a more powerful administration position:

Meet Thomas Perez.

Dear Leader has tapped this radical leftist lawyer Perez to be the next Secretary Of Labor.  This douche is now an assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice. Yeah, Eric Holder's D.O.J. Here's a little background on Mr. Perez:

from The American Thinker
"Perez led the Obama administration's assault on voter ID laws last year. As John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky report in Who's Counting, as a member of the Montgomery County, Md., Council in 2003 he also tried to force governments to accept fraud-prone matricula consular ID cards issued by Mexican consular offices. He was a board member of Casa de Maryland, an advocacy group for illegal aliens funded by George Soros and the recently deceased Hugo Chavez.
Under Perez, the DOJ Civil Rights Division has refused to prosecute hate crimes committed against white Americans. He was reportedly instrumental in the Justice Department's dismissal of a case involving two Philadelphia-based members of the New Black Panther Party who intimidated white voters on Election Day 2008....." 
More about the Panther case and an interesting recently released report on other race based justice cases can be read at PJ Media:
"Perez is apparently in favor of Saudi-style anti-blasphemy laws. In Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries offenders can be condemned to death merely for insulting Islam. Amazingly, at a congressional hearing last year, Perez pointedly declined to rule out bringing such laws to the United States. At the July 27, 2012, meeting of the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee on the Constitution, Perez refused to say whether he would uphold the religious speech protections in the First Amendment in the future. 
Perez, like so many Obama administration officials, believes that America is a seething hotbed of "Islamophobia," filled with ignorant racist rubes who irrationally fear the Muslim religion. He has worked with hardcore Islamist groups such as the terrorist-linked Islamic Society of North America and applauded Islamists for lobbying against airline security measures...." Read More  
Islamic radical friendly, advocate for illegals, doesn't believe in equal protection under the law for all races, educated in the nest of leftist worms called Harvard Law.......yeah, he should fit right in and be in a more powerful cabinet position in which to influence the rotting away from within agenda for America that is well underway.
 Thank You IOTWR for the Linkage

James Rosen: Criminal Suspect

Fox News Reporter James Rosen

We have officially crossed the line, America. The Obama/Holder Justice Department snooped through the private emails of a Fox News employee because he (shock!) reported the news. What’s worse, the search warrant allowing the emails actually lists James Rosen as a criminal suspect, and their justification for doing so is absolutely chilling.

Business Insider
"The Department of Justice heavily tracked Fox News reporter James Rosen during a 2009 leak probe, according to a report from Ann E. Marimow in the Washington Post. For many in the media world, this case seems even more troubling. It involves the prosecution of Stephen J. Kim, who revealed classified information to Rosen. According to the report, Kim told Rosen that the U.S. believed North Korea would react to new United Nations sanctions by employing more nuclear tests."
"What makes this case different from the AP probe is that Rosen is a possible target. In addition to tracking his trips to and from the State Department as well as personal calls and emails, FBI agent Reginald Reyes suggested in court documents obtained by the Post that Rosen had broken the law."  
And this from the Washington Post Story:
"They used security badge access records to track the reporter’s comings and goings from the State Department, according to a newly obtained court affidavit. They traced the timing of his calls with a State Department security adviser suspected of sharing the classified report. They obtained a search warrant for the reporter’s personal e-mails.
"Court documents in the Kim case reveal how deeply investigators explored the private communications of a working journalist — and raise the question of how often journalists have been investigated as closely as Rosen was in 2010. The case also raises new concerns among critics of government secrecy about the possible stifling effect of these investigations on a critical element of press freedom: the exchange of information between reporters and their sources."
Now take a look at the summary page of the DOJ’s warrant:

 via Poor Richards News
The reporter played to a government employee’s vanity? Well, that officially makes him no better than a foreign spy!

Let me reiterate here: NOTHING described in this document is illegal activity for a reporter. This is an investigative reporter doing his job, and the Obama administration is treating journalism as a crime.  This should set off massive alarm bells for anyone who cares about the Constitution and the 1st Amendment. The issue here is not that the White House pursued its own internal leaks; it’s that they’re punishing reporters and officially regarding them as criminals.
