The festering rot at the FBI seems bigger
and deeper than we ever guessed

Original Article

Charles McGonigal, a retired counterintelligence investigator from the FBI’s New York Field Office, was just arrested because he allegedly took substantial sums of money from Oleg Deripaska, a Russian billionaire, to get the latter off a U.S. sanctions list. Where this goes beyond the ordinary corruption that periodically crops up among people with too much power, too few morals, and too little accountability is that McGonigal was one of the people investigating Trump over the Russia Hoax, while Deripaska employed Christopher Steele, whose false dossier seeded the Russia Hoax. Anyone who paid attention during the “hot” years of the Russia Hoax recognizes Deripaska’s name.

The rot is deep in the FBI and has been for years. It is time to clean house and arrest those who lied, cheated, spent millions of taxpayers money trying to feed the lie to honest Americans and ruined others lives.

The enemy has outed itself. We know who they are and what they have done and continue to do. The question we must ask ourselves is can we reclaim the power the left has stolen from us or are we now going to be just observers of the demise of this Republic?

Lots of facts of a corrupt FBI but no action. I’m very weary of the continued display of broken law but no enforcement or penalty. Oh for some law makers. Why waste time crowing about impeaching a sitting president when he is protected by a sanctioned goon squad? Please Congress, throw out the trash!

Sheesh. Everyone seems to think this is something new. Remember Eliot Ness and his Untouchables? Feds who were honorable and honest? The Untouchables got their nickname because they were the glaring exception, the outliers, the oddballs. The assumption was that all feds were NEITHER honorable NOR honest. Hence the singling out those who were. And that was 100 years ago. And before anyone goes off on J Edgar as a bad guy because he compiled blackmail dirt on everyone in DC, just remember that all he did was gather up dirt that was already there. It seems everyone in DC was dirty. Hard to stay clean swimming in a sewer. And again, almost 100 years ago.

Remember, this is the same organization that defended the murder by one of their snipers of a woman holding her baby standing in a doorway in rural Montana. Why? Because her husband was set up and goaded into selling an undercover agent a sawed off shotgun. So, yeah, they are a criminal organization.

QAs we’ve seen all too often, some so-called Republican “leaders” are anything but when it comes to pushing back against the radical left’s woke agenda, which includes such bright ideas as defunding the police, implementing dangerous policies like bail reform, and teaching black children to view their white classmates as their oppressors. But in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to be an unapologetic proponent of common-sense solutions that are expressly designed to reject the radical wokeness that has, in some parts of the country, slithered its way into public school systems, collegiate academia, government, the sports world, banking and the workplace, and beyond.

Washington – The New Jersey man who admitted to spraying U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick with pepper spray during the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack was sentenced to 80 months in prison on Friday in a Washington, D.C. courtroom packed with Sicknick's colleagues and fellow officers. "I don't know what got into you," said federal Judge Thomas Hogan, as he imposed the yearslong prison sentence on Julian Khater, "somehow you got determined to push your way through the crowd." Hogan also fined Khater $10,000. Sicknick died of natural causes a day after defending the Capitol during the Jan. 6 assault, the D.C. medical examiner's office announced last year.

Matt Taibbi just published installment number 15 in the Twitter files series. This one is about a bogus media fraud known as Hamilton 68. If one goes by volume alone, this oft-cited neoliberal think-tank that spawned hundreds of fraudulent headlines and TV news segments may go down as the single greatest case of media fabulism in American history. Virtually every major news organization in America is implicated, including NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and the Washington Post. Mother Jones alone did at least 14 stories pegged to the group’s “research.” Even fact-checking sites like Politifact and Snopes cited Hamilton 68 as sources. Hamilton 68 was and is

Israel's Magen David Adom emergency rescue services said the shooter was neutralized at the scene and that some of the injured are in critical condition. Emergency services were responding to calls about a shooting in the city's Neve Yaakov neighborhood on Friday night, they also said. The incident comes one day after the deadliest day for Palestinians in the West Bank in over a year, according to CNN records, when Israeli forces killed nine Palestinians

The latest numbers from the Bureau of Economic Analysis show that the U.S. economy grew by 2.9 percent in the fourth quarter of last year, and 2.1 percent for 2022. While the White House was quick to take credit for the state of the nation’s economy, they might want to think twice. This latest report should have alarm bells ringing, not trumpets sounding. That’s because economic growth is slowing down. Even the areas which contributed positively to gross domestic product (GDP) are not necessarily signs of prosperity. For example, business investment grew at only 1.4 percent in the fourth quarter, but that was almost entirely inventory growth. Nonresidential investment,

But first, he had to walk through San Francisco to get to the company’s headquarters–and that wasn’t a picnic, making his way through Nancy Pelosi’s city.

McCarthy, leaving the meeting with Musk in his office, declined to comment other than to say: "He came for my birthday." The California Republican turned 58 on Thursday. After the meeting, Musk wrote on Twitter that he met with McCarthy and Jeffries "to discuss ensuring that this platform is fair to both parties."

The Deputy Prime Minister of Canada and confirmed WEF goon Chrystia Freeland has determined that the American middle class “needs a pay cut.” Following an anecdote of an unnamed person who gave her the idea, she explicitly confirms her belief that the prescription for a middle-class wealth downgrade is the correct policy position but mentions the “very difficult” political and social sell to the middle class. As we slide further down the slope into multinational technocracy, the rhetoric will gradually shift in this direction. The “green” revolution and veganism and other energy and food restriction schemes began, if you can recall, with promises of economic expansion

The bankruptcy of crypto firm FTX could lead a bevy of companies with ties to Hollywood out in the cold.

Among the creditors are Comcast, the owner of NBCUniversal, Netflix, Fox Corp., Apple, CAA, and subsidiaries of Warner Bros. Discovery and Endeavor, among other firms. The companies’ presence in the filing implies that FTX owes all of them money, though precisely how much, and what for, remains unclear based on the filing.

In the weeks after Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s Christmastime visit to Washington, U.S., German and other European leaders became locked in an increasingly ugly t-for-tat over whether to send tanks to Ukraine. As language got heated behind the scenes, neither the U.S. nor Germany would budge — even as the standoff exposed a rare breach between two of Kyiv’s biggest backers. Ultimately, President Joe Biden decided it was more important to show a unified front and send the tanks — a move that could go down as one of the most consequential decisions in the multinational effort to arm Ukraine. Biden concluded it was important to move in lockstep with an ally,

Ronna McDaniel won a fourth term to head the Republican National Committee (RNC) during a secret ballot vote by members on Friday, capping off a contentious election spurred by calls within the party for new leadership. McDaniel fended off two challengers — California attorney Harmeet Dhillon and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a staunch denier of the 2020 presidential election results. She received 111 votes, while Dhillon received 51 and Lindell received four. Former Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), who did not ultimately make a run for RNC chair, also received one vote.

That followed a contentious, months-long battle with notable GOP lawyer Harmeet Dhillon, who ultimately ended up well short of the number to overtake McDaniel.

The Biden administration is facing some scrutiny over a proposal to change the way it racially/ethnically classifies federal employees. At the moment, anyone of Middle Eastern or North African descent only has the option of identifying/being classified as “white.” Were the administration’s proposal to be approved, these individuals would instead have the option of identifying as Middle Eastern or North African. The proposal would accomplish this by rewriting the Office of Management and Budget 1997 Statistical Policy Directive No. 15: Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity (SPD 15).
