From Mars

"The Nunes Memo Only Partially “Vindicates” Trump, but it Fully Indicts the FBI and the FISA Court" (Knapp):
"According to the memo, the FBI based the probable cause claim in its multiple surveillance applications  to Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge on two pieces of “evidence”:

1) A “minimally corroborated” (the FBI’s own words) dossier of political opposition research on Donald Trump, compiled by a British former spy in the pay of Trump’s political opponents; and

2) A Yahoo! News article based — although the FBI denied it — on leaks from that same foreign operative.

The memo also claims that at no point did the FBI apprise the judge of the political origins or “minimal corroboration” of the memo.

If these claims are true, then what happened was the equivalent of  crazy Uncle J. Edgar going before a judge and using a picture of me with a Frisbee [TM] in the air behind me, taken by my angry ex-wife, as probable cause to believe that I’m from Mars, then asking for a warrant to search my garage for flying saucers.

As you may recall, this is the same FBI which (and the same FBI director who) amassed mountains of evidence that Trump’s opponent in the 2016 presidential election had committed multiple felonies in her grossly negligent handling of classified information as Secretary of State, yet recommended against prosecuting her because, well, she’s Hillary Clinton.

And as you may also recall, this is the same FISA court that, between 1979 and 2013 approved 35,434 warrant requests and denied 12."

Sid!:  "A bad penny turns up again" (see "Libyan Oil, Gold, and Qaddafi: The Strange Email Sidney Blumenthal Sent Hillary Clinton In 2011"):
"Blumenthal’s involvement adds another layer. Team Clinton wasn’t just paying Steele to dig up dirt, it was providing dirt to Steele, via Hillary’s friend Blumenthal and, if I read the Grassley-Graham referral correctly, an unnamed official in the Obama State Department.

I’m interested in knowing who Blumenthal’s “foreign source” was. A Russian, perhaps?

Regardless, it now appears that Team Clinton didn’t just pay for the dossier, it helped manufacture it. And though its efforts weren’t sufficient to secure the big prize for Hillary, they provided the solace of making life difficult for the man who, as the Clintonistas want us to see things, stole the big prize from her."

Comey and the Weiner emails:  "Recent revelations from the Strzok/Page archives" (Neo-Neocon). There is certainly much ammunition around should somebody want to take a legal run at Comey.

"George Soros requested and was granted meetings with top EU officials in 2017".  "Leaked Document Reveals Soros Backing Secret Plot To Overturn Brexit" (Durden). Schiff is apparently not connected to Soros through his brother.

"Bernie Sanders Hits on Winning Message He Avoided in 2016" (Swanson).  I'm terribly sorry but it really is as simple as the fact that Bernie is a Khazar and war is 'good for the Jews'.  See also:  "Another Warmonger Rewarded for Being Wrong on Iraq War" (Johnson) and "Jews Claim “White Nationalism” Spreading Among Orthodox Jews" (Sol) and "Chomsky’s pro-imperialist Afrin petition" (Beams).

"Failed Mossad Assassination of Hamas Operative in Lebanon" (Silverstein).  Note how this cleverly looks like mild criticism of Israeli assassination policy, but is actually spreading Zionist propaganda (my emphasis in red):
". . . based on information conveyed to me by an Israeli security source, the target was Mohammed Hamdan, a Hamas operative based in Lebanon who was coordinating a weapons development project with Hezbollah which would import Iranian missile parts into Gaza.  The new weapons technology would be used to upgrade existing Hamas missile stocks, according to my source."
Another example of the ridiculous anti-Hezbollah propaganda from the media:  "Columbia Journalism Review--for humor and entertainment" (Angry Arab). Again, very simple.

"Turkey's Offensive In Syria: The US Falls Into A Trap Of Its Own Making" (Korzun).  "Russian-Turkish axis in Syria faces meltdown" (Bhadrakumar):
"For Turkey, the knot is three-fold. Firstly, it cannot come to terms with the new reality that Russia (which has civilizational ties with Greece and Cyprus) has today become the dominant power in the Eastern Mediterranean. Secondly, it disapproves of ongoing Syrian military operations, supported by air power, to regain control of Idlib from opposition groups that have enjoyed Turkish support. And, above all, thirdly, Erdogan’s grand design to establish a permanent Turkish foothold in Syria (which was ruled by the Ottomans), will remain a pipedream so long as Russia underpins Syria’s unity and territorial integrity. Turkey has all along viewed Moscow’s links with the Kurds in Afrin suspiciously.

Typically, therefore, Erdogan will now seek a modus vivendi with the US. Of course, it will be a dream come true for the US if the hairline crack in the Russian-Turkish axis in Syria widens and becomes a rift in the coming weeks. In their opposition to the establishment of Russian bases in Syria, Washington and Ankara are on the same page."
