Cybersecurity experts who held lucrative Pentagon and homeland security contracts and high-level security clearances are under investigation for potentially abusing their government privileges to aid a 2016 Clinton campaign plot to falsely link Donald Trump to Russia and trigger an FBI investigation of him and his campaign, according to several sources familiar with the work of Special Counsel John Durham. Durham is investigating whether they were involved in a scheme to misuse sensitive, nonpublic Internet data, which they had access to through their government contracts, to dredge up derogatory information on Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign in 2016 and again in 2017, sources say — political dirt

Yawn. More nameless nobodies will either not get charged or do time served. He's had -years- to work on this and all we hear about after all this time is he's allegedly looking at a few contractor keyboard monkeys no one ever heard of? Who ordered those people to betray the country?

Joffe is the “Max” quoted in media articles promoting the secret cyber plot targeting Trump..." Um, how can anyone not want to see this? IDK what took so long or what he thinks his end state is, but nailing these tech assassins to the wall is of the utmost importance. Plus gratifying. Plus makes them vulnerable to DJT who will have to goods on his abusers. But that of course is secondary. Primary is nailing their funders.

Looks like Durham will eventually go to his grave with the full story of all those involved . We will learn the identity of the third shooter from the grassy knoll before anyone pays for the attempted coup.

What is the point of bad-mouthing Durham? Why not let this play out without loading him up with skepticism based on nothing factual? I’m for giving the guy a chance to complete his work, wherever it takes him. Those who know about this kind of investigation have said that it can take a number of years. We are criticizing him from a warehouse of ignorance.

Reminder: a real investigation does play out differently from a BS railroading like Muelhead's. W/a witch hunt you only need to leak fake stuff and let the MSM keep tossing bs bombs. You can do that immediately for as long as they let you. Durham, if nothing else, does seem real. But don't compare it to Muellhead's farce.

These threads often attract drivebys who feel faint when they see a long article. All that single-spaced type. Aaargh. From the article, an interesting bit could be a kicker. Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan is front and center in Durham’s investigation. You can almost hear the drivebys in unison “but Garland will probably short circuit any investigation that gets to close to Biden & Co.” But wait: Maggie Goodlander: Jake Sullivan's wife worked for Attorney General Merrick Garland as a law clerk when he was a federal judge. That could create a conflict for Garland, who controls the purse strings to Durham’s investigation.

It is all interesting. And I'll withhold judgement until we see what happens. But so far, the Deep State has managed to protect their own. It would be really wonderful if Mr. Durham is actually interested in justice and willing to go after anyone who is corrupt. If that happens, I'll be happy to applaud. I say nothing against Mr. Durham, but justice delayed is pretty much justice denied. A previous lesson was the years of looking for all the horror shows that were around Hellary and her corrupt Arkansas Whitewater deeds, and BillyJeff who probably raped a couple of women. The great Special Council Ken Starr investigated for years, and while the Clintons got a bit of mud splattered, nobody went to prison, ESPECIALLY the Clintons who ran the whole mess. An no look into the probable rapes, and no real finding on the highly questionable "suicide" of Vince Foster with a LOT of loose ends never sorted out. So, pardon me if I am a bit skeptical that ANY investigation in DC will ever find any serious criminality on the part of the truly powerful folks who ran it, planned it, paid for it and set it in motion. Long history makes me skeptical. I sincerely hope that Mr. Durham is THE exception, and is THE sterling man who takes on DC corruption and gets to the bottom of it. I will watch and see, and not throw rocks. But, I won't spend a lot of time cheerleading, either. A polite, "Hey, that's a good thing" may be appropriate from time to time. We'll see.

Poster #10 points out a major conflict of interest for Judgy Garland in this case. But why would that matter? The utterly corrupt Judgy Garland - - more corrupt than Eric Holder, Janet Reno, and Loretta Lynch combined - - already has a major conflict with his son-in-law raking in millions of dollars from Judgy's illegal witch hunts. So why would this conflict of interest mean anything more to him? Second point - - the posters who are writing negative things about John Durham - - are simply jealous of his amazing skills on the miniature golf course. Lots of people who have no sports talent - - become green with envy when they see someone who does.

Many who know about such things, and read the full Sussman indictment, believe that Durham is going the conspiracy route. The Sussman indictment had a deadline for Durham to meet; conspiracy would have no such deadline. Here - from this article - is an example of what was going on and who was involved. Makes Glenn Simpson and his pathetic little dossier look like small potatoes. And what bound the conspirators together? A mutual dislike of Donald Trump. On Nov. 17, 2016, the Pentagon awarded Georgia Tech a cybersecurity research contract worth more than $17 million. The project, dubbed “Rhamnousia," would allow researchers to “sift through existing and new data sets” to find “bad actors” on the Internet. The indictment said the researchers had been provided “early access to Internet data in order to establish a ‘proof of concept’ for work under the contract.” Of course, the government did not pay the researchers to look for dirt on Trump in the sensitive DNS databases. “The primary purpose of the contract,” the indictment noted, "was for researchers to receive and analyze large quantities of DNS data in order to identify the perpetrators of malicious cyber-attacks and protect U.S. national security.” Instead, the scientists took the political fishing expedition. According to the indictment, Joffe directed Lorenzen and the two university researchers to “search broadly through Internet data for any information about Trump’s potential ties to Russia.” The Georgia Tech researchers named as “investigators” on the project included David Dagon and Manos Antonakakis, who the sources confirmed are the two university researchers cited by Durham in his indictment. Antonakakis is the “Researcher-1” referenced in the indictment whom the grand jury said remarked in an email that “the only thing that drives us is that we just do not like [Trump.].” The original $17 million Rhamnousia contract was approved for five years, federal contracting records show. But the program was recently renewed and has grown into a more than $25 million Defense Department contract -- led by the same Georgia Tech research team. This is a long, fascinating article. We find that many of the players are now involved with Biden.

I have been at the front of the bus when it comes to verbally trashing Durham; almost better than sex [at my age] is Steyn's over the top parodies re: Durham. Yet, Kash Patel, seemingly alone, is a voice that calls out for patience, as he argues that Durham IS making progress, in a process that usually takes 4-5 years. So, it boils down to whether you believe Kash, a man who does seem to be a bonafide patriot. IMO. Wouldn't it be something if some shoes dropped before 2022 and the rest before 2024. I wonder if the firing squads would be granted enough time off to vote? Damn Dominion, full speed ahead.

President Biden’s popularity continues to plummet over his foreign policy fiascos, inability to sell his keynote domestic agendas in his own party — and even his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. A new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows just 38 percent of Americans approve of the job Biden is doing, down from 42 percent in the same poll three weeks ago and 50 percent approval in mid-February. “Battered on trust, doubted on leadership, and challenged on overall competency, President Biden is being hammered on all sides as his approval rating continues its downward slide to a number not seen since the tough scrutiny of the Trump administration,

Dear Republicans: At the moment, things are looking good for you. President Joe Biden’s approval rating has been hit by the bungled exit from Afghanistan, rising murder rates, the border crisis, mixed signals about the COVID pandemic, and Democratic infighting about not one but two massive and controversial spending bills. There is a good chance the GOP will take back control of the House and Senate in 2022 and the White House in 2024, though if Donald Trump, disgraced by his attempt to manipulate the last election results, is the nominee again, all bets are off. Unfortunately for you, my pachydermic friends,

It should be obvious that no sane parent would ever allow ideology to supersede the proper education of her children. Yet, during the past year, it has become equally clear that many of the nation’s school systems are indoctrinating students using politically tendentious curricula that most of the public considers . . . well . . . insane. This has resulted in widespread protests by parents of all political persuasions to which school boards have responded with stunning hostility. The magnitude of this animus was revealed this week when the National School Boards Association (NSBA) equated parents with “domestic terrorists,” and the Biden administration directed the FBI to investigate them.

The Supreme Court this week will again assemble for a new term and pundits and politicians are already handicapping the cases. This term, however, has more drama and tension as Democrats call for packing the court with an instant liberal majority and others attack its members in anticipation of opinions that have yet to be written. The reality is summed up in one of my favorite stories about Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes when he was on a trip to Washington. Holmes forgot his ticket but the train conductor reassured him, "Do not worry about your ticket. We all know who you are.

This week’s Beltway brawls over infrastructure, the Biden fiscal agenda and the federal debt ceiling, for all their sound and fury, are merely preliminary legislative bouts. The main event of the 117th Congress will be the epic fight over “voting rights.” The Democrats know their congressional majorities are unlikely to survive next year’s midterms unless both houses pass one of three controversial bills — the For the People Act, the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, or the Freedom to Vote Act. Their deceptively benign titles notwithstanding, each of these bills would arrogate lawmaking powers reserved to the states by the Constitution.

Parents are criticizing Virginia's Prince William County School Board over a rule limiting public comment, a move community members say is an attempt to stifle debate around hot-button issues. The school board approved changes to its "Citizen Participation" rule during a tumultuous Sept. 15 meeting. The updated rule limits time for public comment to one hour and prohibits attendees from bringing posters or signs into meetings without prior approval from the board.The rule comes as Prince William County parents and teachers debate COVID-19 policies and "woke" curricula. The changes demonstrate the board’s apathy toward concerned parents and taxpayers, several attendees and concerned community members told the Washington Free Beacon.

Hardly a day passes anymore that President Joe Biden or members of his administration do not stand before the American people and lie through their teeth. The latest lie to be exposed came Tuesday, when Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he advised Biden to keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan, and that withdrawing them “would lead inevitably to the collapse of the Afghan military forces and eventually, the Afghan government.” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Mark Milley said he told Biden the same thing.

Almost a year after President Joe Biden trounced Donald Trump in Virginia, the state's unexpectedly tight race for governor has alarmed Democrats and left Republicans hopeful they can win back crucial suburban voters who left the party during Trump's tumultuous presidency. With early voting under way, the non-partisan Cook Report has labeled the Nov. 2 contest between Democrat Terry McAuliffe, a former Virginia governor, and Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin, a toss-up. A poll last week by the University of Mary Washington gave Youngkin an advantage with likely voters.

"History never repeats itself but it rhymes," Mark Twain is generally credited with saying, so it is understandable how today’s ongoing debate over President’s Biden’s first budget may have a familiar feel to it. It seems we’ve been here before. For me, that familiarity is a bit more personal. I was one of the Republican congressional candidates who were part of the historic GOP takeover of the House of Representatives in 1994 – a direct result of the passage of the largest tax increase in history in President Clinton’s first budget in 1993.

The notion of a national breakup has long simmered as a fringe argument, but it is increasingly popular in certain precincts of the political right and has gained at least some traction with partisans of both sides.
