Tuesday. Nothing like a Tuesday.
PER WALL STREET JOURNAL, SOME OF DONALD TRUMPS LAWYERS WANTED KUSHNER GONE
According to this article from last night, some of Donald Trump’s lawyers wanted to remove Jared Kushner from his position in the White House earlier this year. They even went as far as to write a resignation letter for him. The lawyers felt that Jared’s presence in the White House distracted from achieving any of Trump’s agenda, while reminding everyone of the impending doom of the Russian Investigation.
In any nominally functional White House, Jared wouldn’t have even gotten in through the front door, let alone continue to have a position after falsely submitting and editing his SF-86 FOUR TIMES. But, if this were any other staffer, Jared would have been fired as soon as the lawyers came calling. The fact that he’s still there shows how out of touch with reality the Trump team is.
POTUS ATTEMPTS END AROUND OF MAGNITSKY ACT
From Friday’s news dump, the White House released a statement, moving authorization of adding and removing names from the Magnitsky Act list to the Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin.
Rex, the recipient of the Order of Friendship from Vladimir Putin, and former CEO of Exxon, is more than just a little compromised. Steve, the former hedge fund manager, might be slightly less compromised per Russia, but is just as dirty.
This is an obvious end-around to avoid the strengthened sanctions that Congress instituted at the beginning of August. I expect this to get slapped down in the courts.
TRUMP CAMPAIGN DELIVERING MATERIALS TO MUELLER’S TEAM
According to a reporter on Twitter who’s name I can’t find, she has reported that John Dowd told her that he is delivering documents about the Trump Campaign to Robert Mueller’s team.
Not only is this big, but shows that this investigation isn’t going away any time soon. No matter what Trump wants to happen. According to the Rogue Senior Advisor, Trump fired a low-level staffer today just for saying Mueller’s team. The stress is getting to the orange monster.
RT MUST REGISTER AS A FOREIGN AGENT
RT, formerly Russia Today, must register as foreign agents under FARA. Daily Check-In 9/11/2017 had an in-depth write-up of FARA, and how big of a deal this is. I expect Sputnik to join that list very soon.
RUSSIA ATTEMPTED TO NORMALIZE RELATIONS EARLIER THIS YEAR WITH TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, PER BUZZFEED
Buzzfeed has broken this story earlier today about the detailed plans that Russia had for the United States and the Trump organization following the election.
Hole. Lee. Shite.
The plan from Russia was full-blown normalization, complete with sharing intelligence, setting up cyber defense teams, having the CIA/FBI/NSA work with their Russian counterparts, and a complete and total change of geopolitics to a very Pro-Russian stance. It also included the completion of the Syrian Civil War, the denuclearization of North Korea, the “resolution” of Ukraine, and the elimination of sanctions against Russia.
This isn’t a plan for what to do after the election, this was an agenda for a puppet government. This was Russia dictating terms to the United States.
Of course, this operated under the assumption that the President of the United States had no checks and balances on them. Putin can run roughshod over Russia. The American President can’t.
If this is accurate, and the White House did verify the authenticity of the document, this is a step by step plan of how to implement the American part of Foundations of Geopolitics.
Plus, if they could do all of these things like keep North Korea from getting nukes, why haven’t they done so to this point? It’s almost like they benefit from the current atmosphere.
VIRGINIA DROPS TOUCH SCREEN VOTING MACHINES
The Virginia Board of Electors voted Friday Night to phase out their touch screen voting machines in favor of optical scans. Remember the bubble sheets from standardized testing as a kid? They’re coming back in Virginia.
This is what America needs right now. The touch screens typically used have no paper trail. are extremely vulnerable, and often built on antiquated systems. One of the big problems from the election last year was the lack of an audit trail on most machines. While I haven’t heard too many Intel people admit to votes being switched in voting machines, it was shown at Defcon this year that the voter machines have nearly no security on them.
The faster this country adopts proper voter reform, the better.
KOBACH AND PENCE TO PUSH VOTER SUPPRESSION AGENDA
Mother f… what did I just say? PROPER voter reform. Not this “only white people can vote” bullshit.
The latest craziness from the “Voter Integrity Commission” is to have all voters undergo a background check before voting. The same background check needed to purchase a handgun. These pricks don’t even believe in having people go through this check to buy guns.
This is nothing more than their attempt at putting into effect across the country the crap that disenfranchises voters across the country. This is not democracy. They are enemies of freedom and liberty.
I’m going to step down from the ledge now. I’ll picture happy thoughts, like Ted Cruz getting busted for liking a not-bad-at-all porn clip on Twitter.
Thank you, and have a good one.
