President Donald Trump ran out of patience with Chris Krebs, his director of CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency), and on Tuesday night fired him, as he noted in a tweet:

The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate, in that there were massive improprieties and fraud — including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations, ‘glitches’ in the voting machines which changed votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more.

Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

Krebs knew it was coming. For weeks he had been denying that there was intentional fraud involved in the president election, even setting up a “Rumor Control” website that repeatedly challenged the president’s claims of fraud.

On November 12, his agency released a statement declaring that the election was “the most secure in American history”:

The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result.

There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised….

While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too.

When you have questions, turn to elections officials as trusted voices as they administer elections.

A closer look revealed that Krebs had a close relationship not only with Miles Taylor, who recently disclosed that he was the anti-Trump resistance author “Anonymous,” but also with top people at Dominion Voting Systems (DVS). It’s increasingly clear that DVS was the primary tool allegedly used to swing the election to Joe Biden.

Krebs hosted an Election Night “watch party” that was attended by two staffers of DVS. In addition, Krebs retweeted a message urging people not to circulate “wild and baseless claims about voting machines, even if they’re made by the president.”

The last straw was Krebs’ tweet on Tuesday afternoon:

ICYMI: On allegations that election systems were manipulated, 59 election security experts all agree, “in every case of which we are aware, these claims either have been unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent.”

Those “59 election security experts” apparently hadn’t learned that renowned attorney L. Lin Wood (who successfully represented “Atlanta bomber” Richard Jewell and Kentucky teenager Nicholas Sandmann) had spent a day with Trump’s top legal experts Rudy Guliani and Sydney Powell reviewing their proof of election fraud. Afterwards, Wood told Newsmax TV host Howie Carr:

I’ve seen sworn affidavits, I’ve seen sworn video statements. I think that Rudy and Sidney have done a magnificent job in a short period of time of piecing together a solid legal case on what was intended to be a complicated scheme of fraud as it relates to the voting machines….

When you boil it down, it simply amounts to the fact that the United States of American was relying on voting machines that were subject to manipulation.

One of those affidavits came from a member of former Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez’s security detail. In it he said:

I was witness to the creation and operation of a sophisticated electronic voting system that permitted the leaders of the Venezuelan government to manipulate the tabulation of votes for national and local elections and select the winner of those elections in order to gain and maintain their power….

[The] software and fundamental design of the electronic electoral system and software of Dominion and other election tabulating companies relies upon software that is a descendant of the Smartmatic Electoral Management System.

The editorial staff at World Net Daily revealed that the CEO of Smartmatic, Antonio Mugica, admitted in an Associated Press interview in August 2017 that his company’s machines and software created at least one million votes for Hugo Chávez in Venezuela. While this alone is not proof of fraud here in America, it certainly raises suspicions and ought to be investigated further.

It was long past time for the president to rid himself of Krebs. If he ends up winning a second term, it is likely that the president will continue to clean his administration obstructionists in an effort to make certain that no presidential candidate in the future will have to face such evident and provable election fraud.

Washington, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)- President Trump is a fighter, but he needs us to stand with him and fight too! Oath Keepers and Patriots, duty calls!

We must all march on Washington D.C. and directly back-up and defend President Trump as he fights against the ongoing coup that is attempting to steal the election. Start rolling toward DC now! Join in on:

Million MAGA rally scheduled in Washington D.C. this Saturday, November 14, 2020, 1301 Pennsylvania Ave, at 12pm.

Infowars Stop the Steal Caravan! Owen Shroyer is leading a caravan of patriots across the nation to converge on D.C. this Friday and Saturday, to converge and join in with the other rally initiatives, all standing together on Saturday. Go to www.stopthestealcaravan.com to learn more.

WE WILL BE THERE, in D.C., and we urge YOU to be there!

Oath Keepers Volunteer Security Op For Washington D.C.

Oath Keepers is sending some of our most experienced LEO and military combat veterans into D.C. to help keep patriots safe this Saturday, and in the days to come. Oath Keepers is linking up with the Infowars Stop the Steal Caravan and with the organizers of the Million MAGA event, and we will do all we can to assist with volunteer security on the ground inside D.C.

Oath Keepers will also have some of our most skilled special warfare veterans standing by armed, just outside D.C., as an emergency QRF in the event of a worst-case scenario in D.C. (such as a “Benghazi” style assault on the White House by communist terrorists, in conjunction with stand-down orders by traitor generals).

Our men will be standing by, awaiting the President’s orders to call us up as the militia, which would override D.C.’s ridiculous anti-gun laws (by federal statute, all Americans from age 17-45 are subject to being called up as the militia by the President, and all military veterans are subject to being called up until age 65 because of our training and experience). – Stay tuned for further details.

We call on all our LEO, military, Fire, EMS, and search and rescue brothers and sisters nationwide to also volunteer, either for the inside D.C. security op, or for the outside D.C. contingency QRF. You do NOT have to be an Oath Keepers member to volunteer, but you do need to be a trained professional. All military and LEO veterans are encouraged to volunteer (we will put you to work!), but we especially need combat arms veterans, SWAT and riot trained LEOs, EMS, Fire, intel personnel, logistics, EOD, etc. You must be cool and calm under pressure, disciplined, and a quiet professional.

NOTE: For the volunteer security op inside D.C., to protect rally attendees, we also invite the participation of other patriot groups, such as bikers, who are not prior service but who have training, backgrounds, or experience that give them a capacity to effectively deal with unlawful physical violence by leftist terrorists. But, again, you must be calm under pressure and committed to the ethos of the quiet professional. We have found that it un-nerves the leftists to have to deal with stone-faced patriots who don’t react to them running their mouths, but who are eminently capable if things turn physical. Remember, the eyes of the nation, and the world, are on us.

To volunteer, email us at: dcvolunteers@oathkeepers.org

  • Please also cc our backup volunteer email: dcvolunteers@protonmail.com
  • Please let us know what state you are from, and whether you want to serve inside D.C. or on the outside QRF, or both.

You will go through a comprehensive vetting process, including in-person. Again, we welcome the participation of like-minded groups and their leadership, whether veteran groups, three percenters, bikers, etc. Please have your leadership contact us and we will work with you, as we have on many past operations.

If you can’t make it to D.C. in person, please donate to support those who can. We have brave veterans who are traveling there from across the nation, and they need your support to maintain their watch until we prevail. Go here to donate:

All Patriots Must March On D.C. Now!

We encourage ALL patriots to join together in D.C., beginning this Saturday, November 14, 2020. (NOTE: You do NOT have to be vetted to attend the protests/rallies. Just show up. Vetting is only for those who want to be part of the Oath Keepers security op. Nor do you need to be prior service. ALL patriots need to show up). Understand that this Saturday’s march/rally is just the beginning, and there needs to be a strong, ongoing patriot presence in D.C. going forward.

At a Stop the Steal protest in VA this past Sunday, we met elderly ladies who have been protesting in D.C. If they are brave enough to enter D.C. to stand up, so can you. Show up. Those of us who are more able-bodied will help keep you safe.

This election was stolen and this is a communist/Deep State coup, every bit as corrupt and illegitimate as what is done in third world banana republics. We must refuse to EVER recognize this as a legitimate election, and refuse to recognize Biden as a legitimate winner, and refuse to ever recognize him as the President of the United States. This election was stolen by corrupt, law-breaking Democrat partisans on the ground, and by the manipulation of the CIA created HAMMR (“Hammer”) and Scorecard programs.

What President Trump Must Do To Defeat The Deep State Coup

A. President Trump must refuse to concede. No matter what, he must not concede. This election was stolen by domestic enemies. Period. President Trump must refuse to recognize it as legitimate because it is not legitimate. He must follow the advice Hillary Clinton gave to Biden – to refuse to concede, no matter what. But by President Trump refusing to concede, he is stopping a coup rather than engaging in one.

B. President Trump MUST declassify ALL of the dirty secrets in the files of the CIA, NSA, FBI, ODNI, etc. on all of the compromised political, legal, academic, business, media, social elites, etc. He needs to order our Special Operations troops in SOCOM to take lead on securing all facilities where all the data is stored, and he must have SOCOM intelligence officers take lead on following his orders to IMMEDIATELY declassify all of the files on compromised American elites, so we can defeat the Deep State. The dirty secrets – who is a pedophile, who has taken bribes from Communist China and other foreign enemies, who has engaged in murder, etc, are the swam water that the swamp creatures swim in. It is how they are all both controlled and protected. So long as they obey the Deep State, they are immune from exposure and prosecution. If they dare to refuse to obey the Deep State, they can be destroyed by it in a matter of seconds. That is how the Deep State controls people. That is the root of its power (along with the Federal Reserve control on the financial system). And President Trump must strike at the root.

C. President Trump must do a MASS “WIKILEAKS”/SNOWDEN STYLE DATA DUMP. Both Julian Assange and Eric Snowden were heroes in the fight against the Deep State precisely because they dared to do what the Deep State fears most – exposure. The Deep State can throw such patriots into prison. But, it can’t stop the President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief, from declassifying and dumping ALL of the Deep State’s dirty laundry. He has absolute authority to declassify anything he wants, and to disclose it to the American people. And he needs to do that for corrupt, compromised elites of both major parties. There are GOP traitors too, and they have undermined and worked to destroy our nation from within, right along with the domestic enemies within the Democratic Party and the communist left that is not dominating that party. Expose them all, once and for all. And may the heavens fall (it will be the Deep State that falls).

This is his final, last chance to actually drain the swamp.

What We The People Must Do

A patriot from Serbia, who also loves America, shows us the way:

“What we have done, and what you probably need to do:

  • Peaceful protests, good, well played round 1
  • A complete civil disobedience, they are not your representatives. They are FOREIGN puppet government.
  • Connect with the local police and start organize by neighborhoods to stay safe (we didn’t need this step)
  • We swarmed the streets and started confronting the opponents. I know, not nice, but it must be done if the institutions stop to exist
  • Millions gathered in our capital. There were no barricades strong enough to stop them, nor the police determined enough to stop them
  • Police and Military aligned with the people after few hours of fist-fight
  • We stormed the Parliament
  • And burned down fake state Television!

WE WON!

However, we made a mistake. We have not removed ALL of his people from their positions.

That was the only mistake.

They are going to fight to the end, you must do the same.

Take that glorious flag from the chest. That old flag your ancestors flew while fighting for liberty.

Kiss your old Garand, and your Bible.

Do what you need to do.

You have it in your genes.

Make your grand-parents proud, and make your future grandsons proud.”

“GOD BLESS AMERICA!”

The man knows of what he speaks!

STAND NOW, OR KNEEL FOREVER.

We must stand, and we WILL stand. Last night, on a conference call with Oath Keepers from around the country, I urged them to stop at Arlington National Cemetery on their way to D.C. to visit their brothers and sisters and to reflect on all they gave for this nation – many of them giving their lives, with many of them dying in their teen years. They passed the torch of freedom to us. Now it is our watch, and now it is our time to stand in the breach. As the late, great cowboy patriot LaVoy Finicum said:

“It doesn’t matter how it ends, It Matters How You Stand“

On your feet! Stand up, hook up, check equipment … and shuffle to the door my brothers and sisters.

DHS and FBI say hackers from Islamic Republic of Iran are targeting state election websites, pushing disinformation

The mullahs had it so good from 2009 to 2017, they’re working hard to restore the status quo ante.

“DHS and FBI warn Iranian hackers are targeting state election websites and pushing disinformation,” by Jerry Dunleavy, Washington Examiner, October 31, 2020:

An Iranian cyber group was responsible for the targeting of U.S. election websites, the voter intimidation emails sent to potential voters, and the dissemination of election-related disinformation on voter fraud through a propaganda video this month, according to the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI.

DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the bureau issued a joint cybersecurity advisory related to an Iranian “advanced persistent threat” hacker organization just a few days before Tuesday’s presidential election, saying the U.S. analysis indicated that the Iranians had also “scanned state websites, to include state election websites” in late September and that it was also observed “attempting to exploit websites to obtain copies of voter registration data” in September and October. CISA and the FBI confirmed that the Iranian hackers “successfully obtained voter registration data in at least one state” and that “a review of the records that were copied and obtained reveals the information was used in the propaganda video.”

An FBI FLASH Alert also noted that Iranian cyber actors “are likely intent on influencing and interfering with the U.S. elections to sow discord among voters and undermine public confidence in the US electoral process” and “are creating fictitious media sites and spoofing legitimate media sites to spread anti-American propaganda and misinformation about voter suppression.” The FBI said that the Iranians “had taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election” and advised that the Iranian-backed propaganda video that has circulated online “is almost certainly intended to make U.S. voter information and the voting process appear insecure and susceptible to fraud.”

There is no indication that the Iranian hackers have changed any votes or that they have the ability to interfere with any tallies….

 

FBI warns David Wood of jihadists’ calls to murder him for eating Qur’an pages

In Pakistan, a man was recently sentenced to life in prison for desecrating the Qur’an, and it would be no surprise at all if he were killed in prison. In Sweden, Muslims recently rioted over the burning of the Qur’an. A Tunisian woman fled for her life to Germany after she was sentenced to prison for desecrating the Qur’an. In Austria, Muslims threatened to murder a politician for criticizing the Qur’an.

Where are the Muslims standing up for the freedom of speech and denouncing the death penalty for blasphemy? We’re constantly told that those who would commit murder over the destruction of a book (of which there are billions of copies) are simply a tiny minority of extremists that misunderstand their own peaceful faith. All right. Where is that peaceful majority?

Did the FBI Sit on a Computer Containing Evidence of Hunter Sex Tape and Biden Burisma Corruption?

"Here we have Joe Biden’s son smoking crack on film with naked hookers and no one can be bothered to even mention it on the network news."

BY MEGAN FOX

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/election/megan-fox/2020/10/14/did-the-fbi-sit-on-a-computer-containing-evidence-of-hunter-sex-tape-and-biden-burisma-corruption-n1054706;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

One of the strangest details of the exclusive New York Post story involving the recovered data from a computer linked to Hunter Biden is the story of the laptop itself and what is alleged about it. You can read about the evidence alleging that Hunter Biden was trading influence with foreign actors in Matt Margolis’s piece here. But what also interested me was the part of the NYP investigation where they claim there’s a sex tape and pornographic photos starring Hunter on the laptop—and the FBI knew about it in December.

The computer was dropped off at a repair shop in Biden’s home state of Delaware in April 2019, according to the store’s owner.

Other material extracted from the computer includes a raunchy, 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter, who’s admitted struggling with addiction problems, smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images.

The customer who brought in the water-damaged MacBook Pro for repair never paid for the service or retrieved it or a hard drive on which its contents were stored, according to the shop owner, who said he tried repeatedly to contact the client.

The shop owner couldn’t positively identify the customer as Hunter Biden, but said the laptop bore a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation, named after Hunter’s late brother and former Delaware attorney general.

Photos of a Delaware federal subpoena given to The Post show that both the computer and hard drive were seized by the FBI in December, after the shop’s owner says he alerted the feds to their existence.

Let’s forget for a moment that there’s reportedly a video of Hunter Biden smoking crack and romping with hookers on the laptop. That’s par for the course, isn’t it?

What about the part where the FBI had possession of this information back in December? Why didn’t the FBI come forward with this evidence about Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show collusion and influence-trading? Isn’t that something they should have told the president or members of Congress? Was the FBI deliberately covering it up? If the good citizen who came forward and alerted the FBI of the contents of the laptop had not made a copy of the information, it would still be under FBI lock and key. But the computer repairman did make a copy and sent it to Rudy Giuliani. If true, it’s a stunning indictment of the FBI that an American citizen—who alerted them to alleged multiple crimes involving a guy with the last name Biden—knew not to trust them and made other arrangements should they try to cover it up (which, apparently, they did).

Imagine for a moment that a laptop was recovered showing emails from Donald Trump Jr. to a Russian oligarch implicating him in influence-trading and, like a cherry on a sundae, there was also video of him snorting coke off the backsides of prostitutes. Do you think the story would lead every mainstream media news show? You’d better believe it would.

But instead of leading every news show, Twitter and Facebook are censoring the New York Post article and the mainstream press is pretending it doesn’t exist.

 

Facebook Exec ADMITS Throttling NYP Story About Biden Burisma Corruption, While Twitter Blocks Access

Our media and Big Tech companies are actively hiding things from us in an effort to help Joe Biden win the presidency. When will they have to report all these in-kind donations to a political campaign in the form of evidence suppression on behalf of the crooked Bidens? CNN is currently tweeting about the NFL. There is nothing on their timeline about a Hunter Biden sex tape. It’s hard to believe, but that’s the reality in which we live.

Donald Trump got hammered for saying he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and not lose one supporter, and that was hypothetical! Here we have Joe Biden’s son smoking crack on film with naked hookers and no one can be bothered to even mention it on the network news. LOL.

I’m glad I still have my sense of humor. What else can be done short of an armed invasion and takeover of CNN headquarters? Will they never practice journalism? My God, it’s infuriating.

MSNBC is airing fantasies about Biden winning the election in a landslide. There’s no Hunter crack-pipe sex-tape story to be found anywhere on their Twitter either.

Thank God for MSNBC and their intrepid reporting skills. Whatever would we do without their daft speculation with no basis in reality? What a relief they’re not out there covering salacious sex tapes starring Joe Biden’s corrupt son or emails showing how our country’s vice presidential influence was up for sale. They’ll leave that to us and then claim it’s a “right-wing” conspiracy. Second verse, same as the first! At least they’re utterly predictable.

EXCERPTS:

The FBI tried to cover up the Hunter Biden emails last year by confiscating them from a computer repairman and stonewalling him afterwards, according to reports.

The emails only became public because the repairman made a copy of Biden’s hard drive that was ultimately delivered to Rudy Giuliani.

“According to [the repairman] Isaac, the FBI first made a forensic copy of the laptop, then returned a few weeks later with a subpoena and confiscated it,” reported Zero Hedge. “After he stopped hearing back from the FBI, Isaac said he contacted several members of Congress, who did not respond, at which point his intermediary reached out to Rudy Giuliani’s attorney, Robert Costello.”

All of this occurred under FBI Director Christopher Wray’s watch.

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

A lawyer for President Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News on Wednesday he has obtained a hard drive containing some 40,000 emails, thousands of text messages, and photographs and videos of Hunter Biden – the son of former Vice President Joe Biden – in "very compromising positions."

Attorney Robert Costello confirmed the explosive revelations, first reported by the New York Post, that an Apple MacBook Pro alleged to have belonged to the younger Biden was disassembled and an external hard drive was turned over to the FBI in December – after the computer repair shop owner in Biden's home state of Delaware notified federal investigators about their existence.

The Post reported that the broken laptop was dropped off in April 2019, but nobody returned to collect it or pay the bill. It was unclear who dropped off the laptop.

HUNTER BIDEN INTRODUCED BURISMA ADVISER TO VP DAD BEFORE UKRAINE PRESSURE, EMAIL SHOWS

Costello said the laptop was inoperable, but it remained unclear if the FBI retrieved the contents – and if it still existed. However, he underscored that he had in his possession a copy of the hard drive with tens of thousands of potentially damaging correspondence pertaining to Hunter Biden's Ukraine dealings, which also implicate his high-profile father.

The FBI did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

TRUMP TARGETS HUNTER BIDEN'S FOREIGN BUSINESS DEALINGS DURING HEATED DEBATE CLASH

Among the deluge of documents allegedly obtained by Giuliani and Costello: sexually explicit photographs and footage of Hunter Biden, as well as email correspondence dating back to May 2014 that seemingly demonstrated how the son introduced his father – then the vice president – to a Ukrainian businessman and Burisma adviser despite a cloud of ethical concerns.

The email appeared to counter claims by Joe Biden, who has maintained that he has "never spoken to (his) son about (his) overseas business dealings."

Over the past year, Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings have garnered increased questions and concerns, with Trump repeatedly claiming that Joe Biden crossed corruption lines in his handling of Ukraine matters, given his son had a well-compensated position on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings from 2014 to 2019.

The findings from a Senate Intelligence Committee probe, released last month, went so far as to indicate that Hunter Biden engaged in "potential criminal activity" with financial transactions between "Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh, and Chinese nationals."

George Mesires, a lawyer for Hunter Biden, declined to comment on specifics pertaining to the documents, instead underscoring that the former New York City mayor Giuliani had long pushed and propagated "conspiracy theories" against his client, the Post reported.

Mesires did not immediately respond to an email request for further comment.

At the same time that Joe Biden’s son-in-law, Howard Krein, has been advising Biden’s campaign on its coronavirus response, Krein’s venture capital business has been running a special initiative to invest in health care startups that offer solutions to the pandemic.

In March, as Covid-19 began spreading in the United States, the investment firm, StartUp Health, unveiled a new coronavirus initiative soliciting pitches from entrepreneurs with products that addressed the outbreak.

The next month, reports in Bloomberg and the New York Times listed Krein among those participating in daily calls to brief Biden on health policy during the pandemic, while StartUp Health announced its intention to invest $1 million across 10 startups with coronavirus applications within 30 days.

Lots of money to be made here. If Biden wins, we're talking astronomical figures.

Obama also put Biden "in charge" of curing cancer. And while that's obvious nonsense, the health care sector is swimming in cash. What could an enterprising puppet and his handlers do with that until the 25th amendment kicks in?

Peter Schweitzer had previously written about Krein and StartUp Health.

StartUp Health was barely up and running when, in June 2011, two of the company’s executives were ushered into the Oval Office of the White House. They met with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

The following day, the new company would be featured at a large health care tech conference being run by the US Department of Health and Human Services, and StartUp Health executives became regular visitors to the White House, attending events in 2011, 2014 and 2015.

How did StartUp Health gain access to the highest levels of power in Washington? There was nothing particularly unique about the company, but for this:

The chief medical officer of StartUp Health, Howard Krein, is married to Joe Biden’s youngest daughter, Ashley.

“I happened to be talking to my father-in-law that day and I mentioned Steve and Unity were down there [in Washington, DC],” recalled Howard Krein. “He knew about StartUp Health and was a big fan of it. He asked for Steve’s number and said, ‘I have to get them up here to talk with Barack.’ The Secret Service came and got Steve and Unity and brought them to the Oval Office.”

It's like they're not even trying to hide it.

Ashley Biden was at the center of a scandal involving a video of her allegedly snorting cocaine.

Federal Criminal Investigation of Joe Biden’s Ukrainian Influence-peddling Opened

BY BOB ADELMANN

Former Vice President Joe Biden is under an active criminal investigation into his role in the Ukraine influence-peddling scandal, following the release of additional documents concerning Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 election. Paul Sperry, a Washington-based investigative journalist and Hoover Institution media fellow, tweeted on Tuesday:

House investigators have now joined the Senate in requesting the FBI open a criminal investigation into possible foreign influence-peddling & embezzlement involving Joe Biden and his younger brother and son based on suspicious financial activities flagged by US Treasury.

The next day Sperry confirmed that the investigation is active:

Joe Biden is the subject of an active federal criminal investigation into his role in the counterintelligence investigation directed @ the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, including the former vice president’s activities in Ukraine. Ukrainian witnesses are cooperating.

Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said “the report raises serious questions that former Vice President Biden needs to answer. There are simply too many potential conflicts of interest, counterintelligence and extortion threats to ignore.”

The Jewish Voice wrote back in July that the investigation was likely, stemming from complaints of Biden’s interference in Ukrainian internal affairs by a former Ukrainian prosecutor:

Biden, the presumptive Democratic president nominee, has been formally listed in a criminal case for the crime of firing Ukraine’s former prosecutor General Viktor Shokin in exchange for dropping an investigation into his son, Hunter.

Chanel Rion of One America News Network (OAN) confirmed the report:

Shokin formally called for an investigation into his firing back in February of 2020, claiming the Ukrainian government at the time released Shokin of his post in exchange for one billion dollars in loan guarantees promised by Biden.

But at the time Shokin called for this case back in February, the courts named one of the defendants as an “unnamed American,” an individual widely understood to be Joe Biden, Obama’s Ukraine point man. But Biden was never formally named.

Now the courts have ruled it is improper to conceal Biden’s name and that there is sufficient evidence to proceed with an investigation.

Biden bragged about his interference in Ukrainian internal affairs during a public conversation at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in 2018:

I remember going over and convincing our team, others, to convince that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from [former Ukrainian President] Poroshenko and from [former Ukrainian Prime Minister] Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.

So they said they had — they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to — or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said — I said, call him. [Laughter] I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.

Well, son of a b-tch. [Laughter] He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.

There was enough evidence in the Congressional reports released in September on Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings while his father was Vice President that Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) referred Hunter to the Justice Department for a criminal investigation.

From that report it was learned than Hunter benefited far beyond the $50,000 monthly salary he was being paid for being on the board of Burisma. Relationships developed from his presence resulted in him making “millions of dollars,” according to the report. 

Worse than that, “The committees also said they obtained records from the U.S. Treasury Department that ‘show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals’.… In addition the younger Biden had ‘business associations with … Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army.… Those associations resulted in millions of dollars of cash flow.”

It is reasonable to expect that there will be much more evidence of the senior Biden’s influence-peddling and political interference in the 1,000 pages just released to John Durham, the federal prosecutor, on Wednesday.

That investigation will likely extend into President Trump’s second term if he wins in November. If he doesn’t, expect this investigation to disappear into the ether under a Biden administration.

DHS HEAD: DOJ IS INVESTIGATING LEADERS OF BLM, ANTIFA, AND FINANCIERS

Homeland Security head admits “we know that there is organization”, as videos of agitators chanting ‘Death to America’ emerge

DHS Head: DOJ Is investigating Leaders Of BLM, Antifa, And Financers

BY STEVE WATSON

The acting head of the Department of Homeland Security declared Monday night that the Department of Justice is “targeting and investigating” the leaders of Black Lives Matter and Antifa over violence and rioting in US cities.

Appearing on Tucker Carlson’s show, Chad Wolf also claimed that the feds are going after those paying for the organisation of the rioting.

When asked by Carlson “Why haven’t we seen the leaders of Antifa and BLM arrested and charged with conspiracy under RICO?”, Wolf said he had spoken to the Attorney General personally about the matter.

“I know that they are working on it. Look, we have seen about 300 arrests across this country regarding civil unrest and protesting, violent protesting and I would say, criminal protesting,” Wolf said.

“I know the Department of Justice has charged about 74, 75 individuals there in Portland with different federal crimes,” Wolf continued.

“We will continue to see how those investigations are going. Department of Justice is also targeting and investigating the head of these organizations, the individuals that are paying for these individuals to move across the country,” he added.

Wolf also repeated information from police reports indicating that most people arrested for rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin were from other cities.

“What we know, Tucker, is that we have seen groups and individuals move from Portland to other parts of the country,” Wolf said.

“We had about about 175 arrests in Kenosha, almost 100 of them were from out of state. So, we know they are moving around. We have seen them in D.C., in Sacramento, and elsewhere. They are organized. We have seen similar tactics being used from Portland and other cities across the country as well. So, we know that there is organization, I know the Department of Justice is also looking at that as well,” Wolf urged.

Amid the violence, videos have emerged of BLM and Antifa agitators in Kenosha and Oakland, California, marching and chanting ‘Death to America’:

 

Wolf also noted that Joe Biden must be “delusional” for threatening that there will be more violence if Trump is re-elected.

President Trump is scheduled to visit Kenosha Tuesday, after ignoring a request from Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers who said “I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing.”

FBI DIRECTOR: CHINA WANTS TO OVERTAKE AMERICA “BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY”

BY LUIS MIGUEL

SEE: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/foreign-policy/item/36306-fbi-director-china-wants-to-overtake-america-by-any-means-necessary;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

FBI Director Christopher Wray described China’s ruling Communist Party as being involved in a “whole-of-state effort” to overturn America’s global dominance and become the world’s top superpower “by any means necessary.”

Speaking at an event hosted by the Hudson Institute, Wray said China’s anti-America program includes a number of subversive activities, from theft to propaganda to surveillance.

“It’s the people of the United States who are the victims of what amounts to Chinese theft on a scale so massive that it represents one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history,” he asserted, adding that “the greatest long-term threat to our nation’s information and intellectual property, and to our economic vitality, is the counterintelligence and economic espionage threat from China. It’s a threat to our economic security — and, by extension, to our national security.”

The FBI director went on to warn that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “believes it is in a generational fight to surpass our country in economic and technological leadership” — a fight that is not being waged by “legitimate” means, but rather “engaged in a whole-of-state effort to become the world’s only superpower by any means necessary.”

Wray explained that part of China’s strategy involved collecting personal data about American citizens.

“If you are an American adult, it is more likely than not that China has stolen your personal data.... Our data isn’t the only thing at stake here — so are our health, our livelihoods, and our security,” he said. “We’ve now reached the point where the FBI is opening a new China-related counterintelligence case approximately every 10 hours.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently said that Americans should only use Chinese social-media apps such as TikTok if they “want [their] information in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party.” Pompeo stated that the administration is considering banning such apps in the United States.

The Justice Department has also ramped up its scrutiny of China, starting the China Initiative in 2018 to prosecute Chinese nationals in espionage cases, combat hacking schemes, and derail efforts to steal trade secrets.

Wray said the American people “need to understand” that China “uses a diverse range of sophisticated techniques — everything from cyber intrusions to corrupting trusted insiders,” along with “outright physical theft.”

He added: “They’ve pioneered an expansive approach to stealing innovation through a wide range of actors — including not just Chinese intelligence services but state-owned enterprises, ostensibly private companies, certain kinds of graduate students and researchers, and a whole variety of other actors working on their behalf.”

The FBI chief emphasized that China “has a fundamentally different system than ours — and it’s doing all it can to exploit the openness of ours while taking advantage of its own closed system.” According to Wray, half of the bureau’s nearly 5,000 active counterintelligence cases are related to China.

Wray also touched upon the matter of Chinese propaganda in America. He stopped short of saying that the Sleeping Giant is interfering in the 2020 presidential election, saying instead that “China’s malign foreign influence campaign targets our policies, our positions, 24/7, 365 days a year” but isn’t “election-specific.”

"All these seemingly inconsequential pressures add up to a policy-making environment in which Americans find themselves held over a barrel by the Chinese Communist Party,” Wray proclaimed.

The New American has extensively covered China’s creeping control over the world generally and America at large.

One of China’s initiatives, known as Confucius Institutes, involves setting up programs on K-12 and college campuses that immerse the nation’s youth in the morals and values of the communist nation.

Recent reports have found that Chinese weapons have found their way onto American streets. Customs and Border Protection officers in Louisville recently seized 11,000 illegal firearms — valued at nearly $130,000 — that originated from Shenzen, China, and were intended for a residence in Melbourne, Florida.

This comes as the Wall Street Journal has reported on illegal firearms appearing around Black Lives Matter events in Louisville.

“They’re calculating. They’re persistent. They’re patient. And they’re not subject to the righteous constraints of an open, democratic society or the rule of law,” Wray said of the CCP.

It was the American Deep State that allowed China to fall to the communists, and it was again the Deep State that empowered China’s economy, at America’s expense, with a disastrous trade agenda. If Americans want to save their country, they must understand that the enemy without depends on the support of the enemy within.

So much for abandoning state-sponsored religion. The United States government is now promoting the religious cult of sexual perversion, also known as “gay pride.” In the name of “diversity” and “inclusion,” the taxpayer-funded FBI is celebrating, according to their own words, “the contributions that our LGBT colleagues have made to our country and mission.”

It wouldn’t be funny if this were a joke, but the fact that it’s real just makes this even worse. Exactly what contributions have homosexuals contributed to our country and mission? Sexual depravity? A normalization of a movement that is completely and totally destructive to society? Disease? Not to mention the LGBT movement is diametrically opposed to the worldview this country was founded upon.

Nonetheless, our once-great country is going down the abyss of depravity only to be remembered in textbooks many centuries from now as the country that once stood as a shining light in a largely uncivilized world.

TRUMP FORCED TO WITHDRAW HIS “ATF” NOMINATION

TRUMP FORCED TO WITHDRAW HIS “ATF” NOMINATION

BY BOB ADELMANN

SEE: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/item/35856-trump-forced-to-withdraw-his-atf-nomination

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:

When the White House pulled the nomination of Kenneth Charles “Chuck” Canterbury, Jr. (shown) to head up the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) last week, it didn’t say why. But Canterbury’s confirmation was in jeopardy almost from the beginning.

The White House announced the nomination a year ago, but after hearing what Canterbury had to say about his commitment, or lack of, to the Second Amendment, it died in committee.

During that hearing, GOP Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana expressed his frustration at Canterbury’s lack of candor: “I like straight answers, and you are being evasive. You have been nominated to run the ATF. I think every member of this panel, both my Democratic friends and Republican friends who have feelings about the Second Amendment, are entitled to know both morally and legally what you believe.”

His nomination suffered at the hands of the Gun Owners of America, which said that, while Canterbury was head of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), the FOP “backed Congressional measures to expand the unconstitutional and failing NICS [background check] system … and … supported Universal Background Checks and opposed Constitutional Carry.”

The FOP itself didn’t help any, either, when it made plain is opposition to the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act under Canterbury’s leadership.

Canterbury’s nomination stalled, but was returned and revived by the president in February when he renominated him for the position. But his chances were sunk into oblivion when a letter was uncovered, dating back to January 2013, that Canterbury wrote to the Senate Judiciary Committee on behalf of the FOP, not only urging support for expanded background checks, but for “reinvigoration” and additional funding for the ATF “to ensure that it has the tools and resources necessary to [fulfill] its mission.”

Canterbury’s letter also supported the gathering of mental-health records “in the context of firearms acquisition” (whatever that’s supposed to mean), and more federal funding of state and local law-enforcement agencies “to put more State and local law enforcement officers on the street.”

Canterbury buried his nomination when, in the 2013 letter, he gave his reasons for more unconstitutional infringements:

We believe the most logical starting point to address gun violence is the expansion of the background check system. Incomplete or absent background checks create a gaping hole in the wall between firearms and criminals. Loopholes in the background check system give criminals unprecedented opportunity to access firearms. This problem must be remedied quickly….

We encourage you to consider expanding the resources available to ATF to combat firearms trafficking.… As things stand now, ATF has been scraping by with a dwindling number of agents and other resources while ATF’s mission has expanded. Frankly, this is unacceptable.

Things are so bad, complained Canterbury, that “there are jurisdictions out there telling civilians bluntly that they will have to defend themselves.”

In anticipation that he would be confirmed, Canterbury resigned from the FOP after 26 years. It’s hoped that he will now disappear altogether from public view. In the meantime, Regina Lombardo will continue in place as the Bureau’s acting director.
