Russian Musician Who Arranged Trump Tower
Meeting Denies Collusion Allegations

Daily Caller, by Chuck Ross

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/11/2018 7:19:06 AM

A Russian pop star who helped arrange the Trump Tower meeting between the Trump campaign and Russians and who was also present at Donald Trump’s visit to the Miss Universe pageant in 2013 is denying allegations that he was a Russian agent who interfered in the 2016 election. Emin Agalarov, the son of a Azerbaijani-Russian oligarch close to Vladimir Putin, denies the collusion allegations in an interview with Vice News that airs Tuesday night. “I have been accused of influencing — this is gonna sound very strange — influencing the American election,” Agalarov said. “It’s quite a strange and ridiculous

There was no collusion. If there was any evidence, the authorities had it when said collusion happened, there would be no need for an investigation, there were more than enough “inside traders” to know it, leak it, and compile it for Mueller. This whole thing has been a giant jobs boondoggle for out-of-power leftists.

Maybe he didn´t "collude," but it sure sounds like the Russian honeypot lawyer that was the bait was planted by Fusion GPS and other Deep State coup plotters.

So according to testimony, Rob "Hedging Bets" GOLDSTONE thought the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 would identify a "smoking gun" to help Donald J. Trump.

LIAR....!

Why did Rob "Hedging Bets" GOLDSTONE post on Facebook the exact opposite, following the meeting....? Remember the words "...just hedging bets", a reference to backing the other side, if Trump loses. And was posted after the failed meeting--so in Goldstone´s mind, the meeting was actually a success because it happened and the V-lady was present.

GOLDSTONE was on the Fusion GPS payroll and decades earlier, was on the UK Sun payroll, a Murdoch owned tabloid. In between that he found time to help Michael Jackson and Prince Alwaleed, in their big plans to bring "family values" to Hollywood via the Landmark deal.

Trump Was the Big Winner
at Helsinki Summit
Breitbart, by Caroline Glick    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/19/2018 8:17:49     Post Reply
On a substantive level, it is impossible to understand the outcry against President Donald Trump following his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday. Trump met with Putin because as president, he is required to meet with the leader of Russia just as every U.S. president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt had to meet with his counterpart at the Kremlin. U.S. national security and indeed, international security are dependent on the leaders of the two powerful nations developing cooperative relations. The ability of U.S. and Russian leaders to work together plays a key role in preventing another world

Fun with Roe v. Wade Rhetoric
American Thinker, by William Sullivan    Original Article

Some squishier conservatives are now working hard to shy away from any suggestion that President Trump´s newest Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh, might challenge the Roe v. Wade decision. I´m not exactly sure why anyone´s surprised that he or Justice Gorsuch might do exactly that. Trump campaigned in 2016 as a pro-life candidate and promised to appoint judges to overturn Roe v. Wade. But now that we have an opportunity to reverse what is possibly the worst and costliest Supreme Court decision in the history of our country, we´re being admonished for the open hope that it can be done.

First Win for Trump-Putin Summit:
Agreement to Restrain Iran in Syria
Breitbart, by Joel B. Pollak    Original Article

President Donald Trump has been criticized by the media and by Beltway politicians of both parties for his meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday. But the summit has already produced a very significant win: namely, agreement to avoid a war in the Middle East by restraining Iran in Syria. As Breitbart News columnist Caroline Glick noted last month, it was crucial that Trump confront Putin over Syria, because Russia was about to allow Iranian and Hezbollah soldiers, dressed in Syrian uniforms, to move into southwestern Syria along the border with Israel and Jordan. That was not a situation

Helsinki Is One of Trump’s Finest Moments
Breitbart, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/18/2018 9:34:39     Post Reply
President Donald Trump proved to Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday that he is nobody’s puppet — not Putin’s, not the Deep State’s, and not the establishment media’s. Like the moral strength he showed in Charlottesville, VA, last year, Helsinki should be remembered as one of Trump’s finest moments. Last August, some truly evil people showed up in Charlottesville. On one side, you had white supremacists, and on the other, you had the left-wing terrorist group Antifa. A riot broke out, one person was murdered, and another 30-plus others were injured. Almost immediately, the media crafted a narrative around Charlottesville that determined

Trump wastes no time bouncing back
from Russia meddling comments

President Trump clearly felt the burn from the firestorm over his comments regarding Russia’s political meddling and moved quickly Tuesday to try to fix what he broke in Helsinki. Given the enormously high stakes, his sudden about-face was both welcome and complete. Reversing his wishy-washy Monday comment that he wasn’t sure whether to believe American intelligence agencies or Vladimir Putin’s “powerful” denial about the 2016 events, the president wisely took the side he’s on. “I accept our intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election took place,” he said, adding, “It could be other people also.” I could do without the mysterious

Trump’s do-over doesn’t mean it’s over

Call it a walk-back, a cleanup or a clarification. Just don’t call it over. President Donald Trump on Tuesday did something he rarely does in asking for a do-over of his comments about Russia meddling. But he provided far more clarity a day earlier, when he declared that “we’re all to blame,” and expressed confidence in “both parties” -- American intelligence agencies and the Putin government. Even his acceptance of the judgment of the U.S. intelligence community that Russia tried to meddle in the election came late and with a loud caveat: “could be other people also.”

The Helsinki Hysteria
New York Sun, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/17/2018 10:01:16     Post Reply
The hysteria greeting President Trump’s summit with Vladimir Putin is something to behold. “Trump, Treasonous Traitor” is the headline in the New York Times. “Treason Summit” is the phrase used in Bustle magazine. President Obama’s director of central intelligence, John Brennan, calls Trump-Putin presser “nothing short of treasonous.” The Daily News cover cartoon this morning depicts Mr. Trump shooting Uncle Sam. There’s a #TreasonSummit hashtag. Dare none not call it treason? We don’t doubt that Russians attempted to suborn our election in 2016. Nor do we doubt that Russia’s election interference was set in motion by the Russian government. We’re not against

Talking honestly about Peter Strzok’s affair
would have saved that whole bonkers hearing
Washington Post, by Monica Hesse    Original Article

Jerry Nadler appeared to have the best of intentions when he begged his congressional colleagues to tiptoe around Peter Strzok’s mortifying extramarital affair. “You have to treat him and any witness before this committee with respect,” the New York Democrat warned at the beginning of Thursday’s crud-pit of a congressional hearing. “Questions like ‘Do you love Lisa Page?’ are not relevant.” Presumably, this was an attempt to bring dignity to the House Oversight Committee inquiry into whether the FBI employees conspired to keep Donald Trump from the presidency. But — of course questions like that are relevant.

Senate Democratic Leadership: There’s Really

Consider this a follow up to a post I wrote yesterday about the collapsing opposition to the Kavanaugh nomination.

FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, who has become the target of President Trump and House Republicans’ allegations of corruption in the Russia investigation, will tell House lawmakers that his political biases never affected his work. “[L]et me be clear, unequivocally and under oath: not once in my 26 years of defending my nation did my personal opinions impact any official action I took,” Strzok said in his opening statement, released ahead of his testimony before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Thursday.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is asking a federal court in Virginia for 100 blank subpoenas in the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. The request was made in a filing on Wednesday. The subpoenas would require their recipients to testify in the U.S. District Court in Alexandria on July 25, when Manafort´s trial in Virginia is set to begin. No further information was provided in the filing, and a spokesman for the special counsel declined to comment on the request. The request comes roughly a month after Mueller filed a request for 150 blank subpoenas. Manafort is facing numerous charges, including tax

The last member of the rescue team to leave the Thai cave, Australian doctor Richard Harris, has lost his father. Harris’s boss Andrew Pearce says in a statement the father had died shortly after the last of the 13 soccer team members was freed from the cave. Pearce says: “This is clearly a time of grief for the Harris family, magnified by the physical and emotional demands of being part of this week’s highly complex and ultimately successful rescue operation.” Pearce says the anesthetist and experienced cave diver would return to his home in Adelaide city soon.

A recent poll shows grassroots Republicans approve of Presient Donald Trump´s performance in Helsinki, despite the best efforts of liberal Democrats and media pundits to trash the president for absolutely everything he did/does and said/says. The Axios/SurveyMonkey poll asked,"Do you approve or disapprove of the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin?" Seventy-nine percent of Republicans approved. "Who the hell are these people?" an incredulous Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC´s "Morning Joe," asked on Friday´s show.

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording. The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is making plans to move the headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Washington, D.C., to a city in the West. The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service. Today, @Interior confirmed that they are planning to move the BLM HQ west. This is great news since 99% of the land that the BLM manages is located

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you. Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges. It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House. The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.
