Over the next few days, we are going to concentrate on the specific dangers Americans now face because of the growing disparities in the American justice system as they play out in the lives of Americans. The current state of the justice system is front and center daily through the Mueller probe, investigations by various Congressional committees, and media gross misrepresentations of all these in the Media.
Today we take a look at the “current” need for — and efforts to — “Drain the Swamp,” which is Washington D.C.
Let’s get started!
Our media’s valiant efforts to distract us notwithstanding, information continues to seep out that underscores how badly a housecleaning is needed in Washington, D.C.
Last week saw the release of the applications used to obtain warrants from the FISA court to spy on Carter Page, an adviser to the Trump presidential campaign. Obtained by Judicial Watch, the 400-plus pages of (heavily redacted) documents support the conclusions earlier drawn by the House Intelligence Committee (and denounced by Democrats as hysteria): the FISA warrants were obtained through obfuscation and deceit.
As various commentators predicted would be proven, the bulk of the information that formed the basis for the FISA warrant applications was the “dossier” of allegations about Donald Trump’s activities in Russia. This dossier was provided to the FBI by British spy Christopher Steele. Steele was hired during the 2016 presidential campaign by opposition research firm Fusion GPS, who was paid by Hillary Clinton’s law firm Perkins Coie, who was paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC. The allegations were scandalous and completely unverified, in violation of federal statutes and FISA court rules.
In other words, the FBI used oppo research paid for by the Democrats as justification for government spying on a political opponent and other Americans.
But there’s more. In another incredible coincidence, Fusion GPS had hired scholar and professor Nellie Ohr as a “paid Russian expert.” Nellie Ohr happens to be married to Bruce Ohr, deputy attorney general in the Justice Department. Bruce Ohr is alleged to have passed his wife’s anti-Trump research to the FBI. He was demoted for failing to disclose not only his wife’s employment with Fusion GPS, but also his own meetings with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson.
The FISA court was never told any of that. They were never supposed to know. None of us was ever supposed to know.
When thousands of DNC emails were leaked to the public through Julian Assange’s organization WikiLeaks, we learned that Hillary Clinton had abused the primary process, nearly bankrupted the DNC and effectively stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders. We also learned the press played favorites with Clinton, getting her approval before running stories and forwarding debate questions to Clinton in advance. (The official line is Russians hacked the DNC computers and gave the emails to WikiLeaks. Assange and former U.S. and U.K. intelligence officials vehemently deny this and maintain it was an inside “leak,” not a hack. The DNC refused to turn over their servers to the FBI for inspection.)
And then there is Hillary Clinton’s misuse of a personal email server to handle classified State Department information. We now know that then-FBI director James Comey decided not to prosecute Clinton before the investigation was even concluded. We also know that FBI attorney Peter Strzok rewrote Comey’s initial report to change Comey’s description of Clinton’s conduct from “grossly negligent” — which was a violation of the applicable federal statute — to “extremely careless.”
This is the same Peter Strzok who expressed his loathing for Donald Trump in many of the tens of thousands of texts he exchanged with his lover and fellow FBI attorney Lisa Page. Strzok infamously assured Page that they had an “insurance policy” and that they “would stop” Trump from becoming president. At a congressional hearing two weeks ago, Strzok arrogantly insisted that his bias did not affect his job performance.
He must think we’re all idiots.
But then, we were never supposed to know any of this.
Hillary Clinton was supposed to win. No one would know the FBI “investigation” into her violations of federal statutes was a foregone conclusion that would exonerate her. No one would know that members of the FBI and the DOJ were using their government powers to attack and discredit the man who wasn’t “supposed” to win, but did.
Trump’s unorthodox presidency has been a great gift. It has exposed the corruption in our government, and the betrayal of the American public by so much of the press.
We are going to tomorrow discuss specific inequities in the methods the DOJ is using to enforce the law and what is missing. The disparities are blinding! And we are growing numb to their impact.
”Equal justice under the law” is quickly becoming a withering memory from an old way of life. Americans are paying for that in alarmingly rising numbers.
We will also discuss the 45,000 sealed indictments that we are waiting for the Feds to take action on. What could they include and against whom?

As you know, we asked you to weigh-in with your thoughts on TruthNewsNet doing a daily 9-11 AM Central live web interactive talk show. Many of you did respond and I thank you for it. However, with the large number of participants we have here, the positive responses we received didn’t really represent a large enough sample of our partners to feel comfortable in moving forward with that venture.
That being said, we are NOT saying such a project is something we will not do in the future. But we will wait to initiate it until enough of you voluntarily request it. There are many conservative talk-show options for us all. Another one just to have one is not worthy of the effort or the expected contributions of your time.
Until that happens, we will continue down this road in similar fashion on an almost daily conversations with you in the same manner.
As you feel you want to express your ideas on this and/or any other subject, please feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nothing you want to express to me about what we do here is too trivial and certainly is important for me to hear. Please feel free to question or comment.
Also know that everything about everyone who participates here remains 100% confidential. No one has access to any member’s information in any way. Our partner list is kept under lock and key. We have never tried to market any products or services here, and we’ve never attempted to sell advertising on the site, even though we receive almost daily inquiries from potential advertising sources. This is a joint venture with our partners: YOU. And YOU call the shots.
Until tomorrow, Happy Reading!
