Kushner loses access to top-secret intelligence
Politico, by Eliana Johnson & Andrew Restuccia

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/27/2018 4:25:10 PM

Presidential son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner has had his security clearance downgraded — a move that will prevent him from viewing many of the sensitive documents to which he once had unfettered access. Kushner is not alone. All White House aides working on the highest-level interim clearances — at the Top Secret/SCI-level — were informed in a memo sent Friday that their clearances would be downgraded to the Secret level, according to three people with knowledge of the situation. The SCI acronym stands for sensitive compartmented information, a category of information that comes from sensitive intelligence sources and must be walled off. The

And how did 0bama and Jarrett gain access to top-secret intelligence? Neither one could pass the background check I got decades ago in the U.S. Navy.

All White House aides on interim clearance were downgraded. The Fake News by omission headline sells it as Jared only. Why didn´t the headline say both Ivanka and Jared lost clearance since she was also in the interim group?

My gut feeling is that both Clinton and Obama disregarded the whole system of secret and classified information.

This appears to be the first time that an individual’s security clearance and level of access has openly been reported in the media to this extent, unless he or she was convicted of serious criminal offenses.

BRAVO, #6!
Fake News By Omission!
That´s EXACTLY what´s been going on! The MSM skews the news to fit their agenda by what they DON´T report---which serves 2 purposes:
1. How do their readers/viewers know about something they don´t know about?
2. You can´t be sued for something you DIDN´T report.

Each and every day the White House press corps sniffs every Republican’s butt for the tiniest whiff of scandal imagined or real. When Obama was President anyone with two legs had access to the highest classification possible.

At one time I understand that the Clinton WH had 300 sycophants who not only couldn´t but didn´t pass security regs but were into all levels of secret info for his entire term.

Who´s to worry???

Isn´t the real question why it is taking the FBI over a year and a half to do a security clearance check on the President´s staff?

As I understand it, the FBI has not completed checks on most of the staff. If they did complete the checks and found people who should not be trusted with a top secret clearance for good reasons, they should not be on the President´s staff, period.

#7 jogged my memory - FBI agent Gary Aldrich stated in his book on the Clinton WH that almost no one had a security clearance and they were all given access to the nation’s secrets anyway.

One of the things that motivated my old friend Andrew Breitbart was his righteous indignation at being called a racist. That’s a running theme in his book, Righteous Indignation. “Andrew Breitbart despised racism,” his friend Ben Shapiro told me. “He took pride in rejecting racism and fighting it tooth and nail. He saw it as a form of bullying. Nothing devastated him more personally than being maligned as racist.” He would also advise conservatives not to be deterred if their opponents on the left unfairly called them racists — something he rightly believed happened all the time.

Beto O’Rourke Just Showed Everyone
How To Lose An Election In Texas

There are two ways to guarantee you’ll lose a statewide election in Texas: campaign for abortion or campaign against guns. Texas Democrats accomplished the first in 2014, when Wendy Davis lost the governor’s race to Greg Abbott by 20 points. Now they’re determined to do the second. Beto O’Rourke, the photogenic Democratic congressman from El Paso hoping to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in November, declared at a SXSW event Monday that there’s no reason an AR-15 should be sold to a civilian. According to Politico’s Michael Calderone, O’Rourke, who’s not shy about swearing on the campaign trail, added, “I have

Bitter clingers. The 47 percent who are takers. You’d think after Barack Obama and Mitt Romney got burned for coining these appellations, ambitious pols would learn not to talk about the opposing party’s voters that way. Both those comments were said before private audiences and leaked out. But Hillary did them better by offering her diagnosis of the “basket of deplorables” at a public campaign event. And she refuses to learn even still. At a conference in India yesterday she confidently explained the 2016 election this way: I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. . . .

The State Department said that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was informed of his own firing by President Donald Trump´s Tuesday morning tweet announcing the news. The secretary said that he was "unaware of the reason" for his firing, which he said he did not discuss with President Donald Trump before Trump announced his ouster on Tuesday morning. "The Secretary had every intention of staying because of the critical progress made in national security," Under-Secretary of State Steve Goldstein said in a statement. "The Secretary did not speak to the President and is unaware of the reason, but he is

Mike Schultz will have the honor of being the U.S. flag bearer at the Paralympics opening ceremony in Pyeongchang on Thursday. As the International Olympics Committee states, the individual who takes on this meaningful role embodies the nation´s values, Olympic and Paralympic ideals, and is an inspiration for future generations. Schultz checks off all of these boxes. As a snocross racer growing up, he was dubbed "Monster Mike" for his fearlessness on the tracks. But in 2008, his world turned upside down after a devastating accident cost him his left leg. A decade later, he has turned tragedy into triumph—he´s

Democrats dream of turning Texas into a blue state, thereby cementing the far left’s hold on America for the foreseeable future. They hope to make progress toward that goal this year, and they were counting on a blue wave of enraged liberals to emerge in Tuesday’s primaries as a harbinger of victory in November. They even hope that their man Beto O’Rourke can drive Ted Cruz out of the Senate. But no such blue wave emerged on Tuesday. True, just over one million votes were cast in the Democratic Senate primary, which O’Rourke won with 62% of the vote. But well

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg is accusing politicians of being the “b**ch of the NRA” in a new ad for the March for Our Lives protest. Hogg posted the video advertisement for the March 24 protest on his Twitter account, asking “#WhatIf we could go to school without fearing for our lives?” The video starts on an edgy note, with Hogg glaring into the camera and declaring, “What if our politicians weren’t the b**ch of the NRA?” “What if we all voted and said this was not okay?” he continued. “What if we stood up as Americans and fought for our freedom and our children’s lives?

Barbra Streisand said she´s never suffered sexual harassment but has felt abused by the media. During a tribute to Streisand´s decades of TV music specials and other programs, producer and long-time admirer Ryan Murphy queried her about her career, the #MeToo movement and her aversion to interviews. ´Never,´ she replied when asked if she had been sexually mistreated. ´I wasn´t like those pretty girls with those nice little noses. Maybe that´s why.´ She acknowledged the power of protests against gender inequality sweeping through Hollywood and society.

Hillary Clinton provided an explanation for some recent comments she made that she understood ´upset or offended´ some Americans – statements that drew criticism from fellow Democrats and the Trump White House alike. ´I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted. I meant no disrespect to any individual or group,´ she said in a Facebook post. ´And I want to look to the future as much as anybody.´ Clinton, on a trip to India, had talked about how her voters came from economically advantaged places in comparison to Trump voters, and also noted how white women

First there was the casual sexism: the reason white women didn’t back her when she ran for president, Hillary Clinton believes, is “a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.” Have you noticed that her sneering always seems to take the same form? She’s become the queen of the contemptuous listicle that tails off into a snarling “whatever.” Remember the formulation in the speech where she came up with the term “basket of deplorables?” “You could put half of Trump´s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Hillary said.

Democratic lawmakers have offered to hire fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe so that he can qualify for his pension. McCabe´s employment was terminated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions less than 48 hours before he would have qualified for his pension, a day that was also his 50th birthday. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., asked McCabe on Twitter to "call him." "I could use a good two-day report on the biggest crime families in Washington, D.C.," he wrote. Pocan was responding to a tweet by MSNBC journalist Andrea Mitchell, who said if a member of Congress were to hire him
