Connect the Dots Folks .... Deep State is deeper than you realize ! ~ CP
Some thing else U MIGHT NOT KNOW!! Obama was mentored when in Chicago by former Priest Gregory Galluzzo. Gregory Galluzzo graduated from the Spring Hill College in 1960, James Strzok graduated from there in 1964. Peter Strzok's uncle is James Strzok, James Strzok was stationed in Kenya, where Obama once lived.
Once Obama is in office, Peter Strzok, nephew of James Strzok, rockets right up to the top of the FBI, becoming the guy for Obama & Hillary, to destroy evidence & impact investigations. Sept of 2015, Strzok requested ALL HRC email copies from DOE, NSA, NRC, DOJ, NSA, US Treasury. He was the last person to view HRCs deleted emails.
The father of Peter Strzok is Peter Strzok Sr. The brother of Peter Strzok Sr is Mark Strzok. The wife of Mark Strzok is Mariana Strzok. Mariana Strzok is the daughter of General James Cartwright. General James Cartwright, was pardoned by Barrack Obama on his last day of office.
The wife of Peter Strzok, Melissa Hodgeman whom, it just so happens, was promoted to the role of director of the SEC at the same time the FBI was drafting the exoneration letter for HRC.
The father of Peter Strzok, Peter Strzok Sr, just happened to be in Iran in 1979, the year that the Shan was removed from power & the 2,500 years of continuous Persian monarchy was replaced with an Islamic Republic under the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. CIA? Dot-Dot-Dot.
Father of Peter Strzok, Peter Strzok Sr was in the Army core of engineers. An expert in sanctions & nuclear activity in Iran. His brother Mark Strzok of Mammoet, world leader in big cranes, with a specialty in moving Nuclear Reactors. Want to bet there's a Strzok in Iran?
Mariana Srtzok. mother of Devin Strzok, Devin Strzok was in the situation room in the White house West Wing in May 2015 with his new wife, at 9:45 at night. Now why would that be? The agreement on the nuclear program of Iran was reached in Vienna on 14 July 2015. Interesting, no?
Wonder what or whom, the Strzok family represents? Obama knows...
1 Comm

 

i have not done any research on this for verification....just not enough time on a friday afternoon...

please let me know if anyone here can find info.


 Here is what strzok has to cover up......

The wife of Mark Strzok and mom of Devin Strzok is Mariana Srtzok .. Mariana (or Mary) is the daughter of General James Cartwright. Devin Strzok is actually Devin Cartwright Strzok . His grandfather, General James Cartwright, was pardoned by Barrack Obama on his last day of office. Cartwright was accused of leaking info on stuxnet.

Another brother of Peter Strzok Sr is James Strzok A Jesuit priest working in Kenya! With, no surprise, a solid military career, and deep knowledge in energy / resources.. Wow, what is this an emergency meeting between Devin Strzok in the situation room in the Whitehouse West Wing in May 2015? With his new wife, at 9:45PM at night?

Just an everyday meeting with the wife, also in the military (also a Strzok) with Osbaldo Cantu about geospacial technology Just so happens his uncle Peter Strzok was the last person on earth to see the deleted HRC emails.

So that is 6 out of 100 Strzok family members involved? Dont get me started about the connections of all of them to Uranium Strzok family reunions can probably turn on lightbulbs while they are still in the packaging.

And then the wife of Peter Strzok Melissa Hodgman. Just so happens she was promoted to her role as a director in the SEC at the same time the FBI was drafting the exoneration letter for the HRC emails. Just another meeting in the West Wing with Peter Strzok 2, his wife Melissa Hodgman, and their two kids who kept the last name of Hodgman. Nothing to see here.

Interesting news day and yet later I'll sound like a conspiracy theorist, which I think is the plan for anyone looking at things rationally. I do however believe President Trump raises a good question asking, "Why didn't President Obama do something?

According to the indictments it happened on his watch but Obama/Susan Rice told the NSA/FBI to "stand down" stop the investigation. This we know from Congressional hearings and dates back to 2015! 2016 is worse. The hack extends to both parties but the democrats were more vulnerable-wonder why that is.

The why of it is simple but the problem is Trump won.So the question is do we have an organized plan to clear Hillary and frame Trump as an insurance policy if he won. Trump has some legit business in Russia so the American people would be buy into a "collusion" narrative.

So indictment against Russians never to come to court with a statement no results were effected as far as the election goes and a warning that no Americans were involved-odd statement.

Maybe that's right. The indictments come one day after the Peter Strzok hearing and he did say Americans are a stupid lot. I guess I need to think more about it rather than simply come up with random thoughts......LT

The Rule of Law is Dead by Wes Rhinier

The rule of law is the legal principle that law should govern a nation, as opposed to being governed by arbitrary decisions of individual government officials.

Tyranny can be defined by that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry. Also cruel and unfair treatment by people with powers over others.

Ive written several times about how I believe the Rule of Law is and has been Dead. None of us wanted to face the world we thought was coming in the future; now that future is here. There is no Rule of Law in this once great country. People will not accept the simple fact that there is no Republic without the Rule of Law.

Our government officials dont even try to hide it anymore. Peter Strzok slapped us in the face with his lawlessness and smiled. The FIRST foundation of a civil society is The Rule of Law. Without it, there is literally nothing other than the Law of the Jungle.

If any ordinary citizen had done the things the previous administration has done, they would be rotting in a jail cell for the rest of their lives.

If this issue, the utter destruction of The Rule of Law is not addressed now, there is a very real risk that the spiral of events that has been growing, first slowly and now exponentially, could erupt into literal war within our own nation.

If it does, you had better get up and look in the mirror because it is the collective inaction and refusal to demand the restoration of the Rule of Law by the American people that has and will lead to this outcome. There is no violent repression by police or anyone else that can stop it.

Only restoring the Rule of Law so everyone has equal recourse to the law will stop and reverse what is otherwise inevitable.

We have been taught since childhood that fighting solves nothing, but is this really true? Isnt our country and our Freedom worth fighting for? History has shown that violence in the face of tyranny is often necessary. Lets hope our government officials will wake up, see what is happening and restore the Rule of Law; then again we see how good they are at policing themselves.

Peter Strzok, Hillary Clinton,Obama,Eric Holder etc.. the list could go on, are laughing at us as they walk free, while anyone else would be rotting in a cell is yet another dividing point for what is left of the country. One side understands the rule of law and the consequences when it is replaced by the rule of man. The other side asks, what difference does it make? Neither side will support Liberty so we are only left with the consequences of tyranny.

The Declaration of Independence states that when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government.

Tyranny will soon force good men to fulfill a dangerous oath. They dont realize that by rejecting the Rule of Law, they have set us free. We are independent. We owe them nothing, not respect, not loyalty, not obedience. We Owe Them Nothing!!!

May God have mercy on our country.

imo....some would do well to focus more on what is taking place TODAY in our world....many are preoccupied with the 'concept' of racism which this country went to war to eradicate many years ago. but little to NOTHING is being done today to stop the abhorrent practices of Christian annilhilation and pedophilia happening TODAY right under our noses............

Normalization of Pedophilia Goes Mainstream, Child Molesters Rebranded as Minor Attracted Persons

A campaign to normalize pedophilia claims individuals who fantasize about raping children should be accepted as their own sexual orientation.

 

 

 

In a disturbing attempt to normalize pedophilia as a mainstream sexual orientation, pedophiles are rebranding themselves as Minor Attracted Persons, with the hope that they will be accepted as part of the LGBT community.

website has been established called The Prevention Project, which sports the tagline Everyone deserves support, and attempts to push two disgusting ideasthat there are different classes of pedophiles for different ages of children that should be accepted by society, and that non-offending pedophiles should be praised for the fact that they have yet to molest a child.

The Prevention Project defines a pedophile as an adult who is attracted to pre-pubescent children, and claims that there are different classes of pedophiles, based on the age of the child, which include infantophiles (pedophiles who are attracted only to infants), hebephiles (pedophiles who are attracted to pubescent children), and ephebophiles (pedophiles who are attracted to post-pubescent children).

The website then went on to argue that in the case of the fictional character John, his sexual attraction to children, aged 6-12, was justified because he had yet to harm a child or to act on his sickening desires, and anyone who believed John was in the wrong was simply influenced by religious beliefs. The Prevention Project stated:

First, lets be clear. John is actually not a child molester nor is he a sex offender. The term sex offender is a legal construct that one receives as the result of being found guilty and sentenced in the criminal justice system for sexually abusing someone. Instead, John has an attraction to children and he wants help to ensure he is safe in society. He is also committed to preventing child sexual abuse by speaking out against it and by showing his support of global child sexual abuse prevention programs on his social media. Why would John not deserve support via therapy? After all, isolation and depression are known to increase ones risk of doing something they might regret. 

 

Launching into a conversation on NOMAPs or Non-Offending Minor-Attracted Persons, the Prevention Project argued that individuals should feel safe sharing their sexual attraction to children without being worried about the recourse from individuals in society because research also indicates that someone can be attracted to a child without inevitably sexually abusing them. 

While the website does not cite this research it claims to quote, it does provide a link to the blog of a man writing under the name Ender Wiggins, who claims that he is a non-offending, anti-contact pedophile. He argues that pedophiles should be treated the same as members of the LGBT community and that pedophilia should be accepted as an additional sexual orientation.

Most people these days are very sympathetic with the struggles of young homosexual teens, and luckily in a lot of environments, they receive the acceptance and support that they need and they have plenty of role models that have led the way in past rougher times to look up to. That is hardly the case for young boys and girls who discovertypically in horrorthat theyre sexually attracted to younger children, Wiggins wrote.

He claimed that many pedophiles realize their sexual desires when they are children and that the process of discovery is pretty much the same as with any other sexual orientation  including heterosexuality. 

The one thing that is not addressed by either the Prevention Project or by this author who claims to be a Non-Offending pedophile, is the issue of consent. When a boy is going through puberty and he realizes that he is sexually attracted to girls, consent is still required for him to initiate any type of sexual contact. The same goes for boys who are sexually attracted to boys, or girls who are sexually attracted to girls.

 

However, when an adult is sexually attracted to an infant or a child, he or she is admitting attraction to an individual who does not have the ability to consentthus why the concept is deemed wrong in society. If a child is molested or raped, it results in long-term physical, emotional and mental problems that will go on to affect the child for the rest of his or her life.

In a left-wing op-ed for The Independent, one therapist noted that many pedophiles do not accept that theres anything wrong with having sex with a six-year-old, and that even when she read statements from the victims that detailed the terror, the free-floating anxiety, the years of bed wetting, the suicide attempts, an inability to trust adults and have any intimate relationships, to the pedophiles who were responsible for the abuse, they were unmoved and continued to justify their horrific actions.

The idea that these monstrous individuals, who ruin the lives of children for the sake of temporary gratification, and then find nothing wrong with their actions, would ever be accepted by society may sound absurd now. But the process of desensitization starts by attempting to normalize the individuals who have not yet committed the heinous actsyet they still fantasize about it and openly promote their desiresby claiming that their sick disorder should be accepted as a form of sexual orientation.

Listen, I get theres lots of folks who hate Trump. Hes a gruff personality and doesnt speak as prettily as some would like. I get that completely.

But when your hate for the man clouds your ability to process facts in a rational manner, you have a problem.

So many people (largely the ones who despise Trump) are trying to make a big deal about him evidently snubbing the queen and not following protocol and such.

You guys are so drowning in your hate, you cant think objectively and actually look at the evidence of what actually happens in the real world.

Whats funny is I had to screen grab these images to get them since no publication ran with these pleasant pictures - I guess it doesnt make good clickbait for the haters. And Id note, you rarely see the Queen smile in public settings with officials.

As to him not bowing - I kept seeing that mentioned in articles - notice how the queen greets him and Melania with a handshake.

Also, people hyperventilating over him not following nuance of protocol - give me a break. This woman (the Queen) has been on the throne since the 50s. Shes seen it all, and Im sure that whatever minor perceived flub you haters of all things Trump come up with, shes seen much worse.

Media really needs to get a grip worldwide. Its pathetic, and in this case, offensively and egregiously misleading. See the pictures.
----
Update:  What is amusing is the haters that show up. It really does give insight into the mind of the rabid Trump haters and the pretzels they'll twist themselves into to make him look bad in their own eyes. These folks will need chiropractors with all this twisting and spinning that they do.

174 rockets & mortar rounds were fired at Israel by Gaza terrorists on Saturday. Heres the latest, including a list of things for which to pray.

Gaza-rockets3

 

UPDATED: (Jerusalem, Israel) Since the early hours of Saturday morning until this very moment as I write this column at 9:00pm (update: 10pm) Saturday night, terrorists in Gaza have unleashed the most intense barrage of attacks on Jewish civilians in southern Israel since the August 2014 rocket war.

So far, more than 174 rockets and mortar shells have hit Israel, reports The Jerusalem Post. The Iron Dome has shot down some 30 of them. But there has been property damage and at least three Israeli civilians have been injured.

Lynn and I are currently hosting a Prayer & Vision Tour of Israel with some 210 Evangelical Christians from the U.S., Canada and six other nations. By Gods grace, we have not been in the line of fire but we are all praying for the Lord to show mercy and restore calm to people on both sides of the border. Please join us. 

It grieves us that tens of thousands of Israelis along the southern tier have spent all or much of the day in bomb shelters many of them not air-conditioned amidst temperatures hovering between 90 and 100 degrees. It likewise grieves us that Palestinians in Gaza that are not involved in such terrorism at all but live under the slavery of jihadist groups like Hamas, Islamic Jihad, ISIS and others are suffering through no fault of their own. Many of them dont have bomb shelters, and dont even have electricity for more than a few hours a day, much less air conditioning.

The Israeli military has retaliated with at least 40 air strikes so far. Yet the terrorists in Gaza continue to fire at Israeli civilians in rapid and intense bursts. Whats more, as they have for nearly two months, Palestinian terrorists continue to try to blow up and penetrate the security fence that separates Gaza from southern Israeli, drawing fire from IDF forces positioned along the border.

The risk of a major escalation possibly even a ground war involving Israeli combat forces entering Gaza to suppress the attacks is rising. No reasonable person on either side of the border wants that. Only the forces of evil do. That said, Israelis cannot live with 90+ rocket and mortar attacks a day and men, and women and children running for bomb shelters over and over again with only 15 seconds before the explosions begin. We need God to intervene before this thing spins out of control.

Please pray, therefore:

 

  • For the peace of Jerusalem and the entire country.
  • For calm and security to be restored on the Gaza/Israel border and the prevention of another war.
  • For the Lord to show mercy and supernatural physical and emotional healing for those on both sides of the border who are being traumatized by this fresh wave of terror.
  • For Israeli and Palestinian believers to have wisdom to know how best to be a blessing to our nations and to be bold in proclaiming the Good News of Gods love and His offer of forgiveness and eternal life through Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus the Messiah.
  • For all of those on The Joshua Fund tour to maintain their courage and boldness and to remain faithful in prayer for Israelis and Palestinians as theyve been doing all week. (I love these folks they have been such a joy to teach, baptize, pray with, worship, encourage and learn from!)

 

Ceasefire announced after Gaza terrorists launch 200+ rocket & mortar attacks against Israel. Heres the latest. Please keep praying.

Gaza-mapoftargets-July2018

(Jerusalem, Israel) Yesterday was not an easy one in the Epicenter. Heres the latest as of 7:30am, Israel time:

  • More than 200 rockets and mortar rounds were fired at Israel by terrorists in Gaza on Saturday, July 14 the biggest salvo of attacks since August 2014.
  • Tens of thousands of Israeli civilians in the southern tier near Gaza spent most or all of the day in bomb shelters. Many of those are not air-conditioned, and the temperatures were hovering between 90 and 100 degrees yesterday.
  • After hours of back channel diplomacy led by Egypt and relentless pounding by IDF forces Hamas and Islamic Jihad announced a ceasefire in the early hours of Sunday morning.
  • The terror groups briefing broke the ceasefire shortly thereafter, firing more rockets and mortars at Israel.
  • The IDF retaliated against these attacks, after the most intensive airstrikes against Hamas and Islamic Jihad targets in Gaza since the August 2014 war known as Operation Protective Shield. The IDF blew up two terror tunnels, an urban terror training center, weapons depots and other terror facilities throughout the Gaza Strip.
  • Meanwhile, over the past three months, terrorists in Gaza have sent incendiary devices over the border and have set more than 1,000 fires in Israel.
  • The fires have laid waste to over 8,200 acres of forest and agricultural land, with damage totaling tens of millions of dollars, reports Israel Hayom. Experts say it will take at least 15 years to rehabilitate the vegetation and wildlife in the scorched areas. When the remote arson attacks began a few months ago, some politicians and military officials dismissed them as a passing nuisance. But the protesters added explosives-laden balloons that ignite upon landing on the Israeli side of the fence to their arsenal, and now Israeli children who come across a stray kite or balloon have to back away and tell their parents to call in sappers.
  • Whats more, for the past three months, Palestinian terrorists have repeatedly tried to blow up and surge through the security fence that separates Gaza from Israel. Thus far, they have all been stopped by IDF forces. But Hamas leaders are openly calling for their forces to penetrate the fence and murder Israeli civilians living in nearby communities.
  • Since roughly 2:00am local time, the ceasefire has held and the Gaza/Israel border is quiet again. That is, we havent had any more rockets or mortars fired. It remains to be seen whether the kite bombs and attacks on the security fence will stop.
  • Neither President Trump nor any senior U.S. officials have condemned or even commented the 200+ attacks on Israel. Not sure how to explain that. 
  • Almost no media outlets outside of Israel have covered any of this. That, sadly, is par for the course.
  • Please continue to pray for calm and restored security on the border.
  • Please pray for the Lord to comfort those wounded and those emotionally and spiritually traumatized by all these events.

Russia Isnt the Only One Meddling in Elections. We Do It, Too.

Image
 
  • Feb. 17, 2018

Bags of cash delivered to a Rome hotel for favored Italian candidates. Scandalous stories leaked to foreign newspapers to swing an election in Nicaragua. Millions of pamphlets, posters and stickers printed to defeat an incumbent in Serbia.

The long arm of Vladimir Putin? No, just a small sample of the United States history of intervention in foreign elections.

On Tuesday, American intelligence chiefs warned the Senate Intelligence Committee that Russia appears to be preparing to repeat in the 2018 midterm elections the same full-on chicanery it unleashed in 2016: hacking, leaking, social media manipulation and possibly more. Then on Friday, Robert Mueller, the special counsel, announced the indictments of 13 Russians and three companies, run by a businessman with close Kremlin ties, laying out in astonishing detail a three-year scheme to use social media to attack Hillary Clinton, boost Donald Trump and sow discord.

Most Americans are understandably shocked by what they view as an unprecedented attack on our political system. But intelligence veterans, and scholars who have studied covert operations, have a different, and quite revealing, view.

 

If you ask an intelligence officer, did the Russians break the rules or do something bizarre, the answer is no, not at all, said Steven L. Hall, who retired in 2015 after 30 years at the C.I.A., where he was the chief of Russian operations. The United States absolutely has carried out such election influence operations historically, he said, and I hope we keep doing it.

Loch K. Johnson, the dean of American intelligence scholars, who began his career in the 1970s investigating the C.I.A. as a staff member of the Senates Church Committee, says Russias 2016 operation was simply the cyber-age version of standard United States practice for decades, whenever American officials were worried about a foreign vote.

 

Weve been doing this kind of thing since the C.I.A. was created in 1947, said Mr. Johnson, now at the University of Georgia. Weve used posters, pamphlets, mailers, banners you name it. Weve planted false information in foreign newspapers. Weve used what the British call King Georges cavalry: suitcases of cash.

The United States departure from democratic ideals sometimes went much further. The C.I.A. helped overthrow elected leaders in Iran and Guatemala in the 1950s and backed violent coups in several other countries in the 1960s. It plotted assassinations and supported brutal anti-Communist governments in Latin America, Africa and Asia.

But in recent decades, both Mr. Hall and Mr. Johnson argued, Russian and American interferences in elections have not been morally equivalent. American interventions have generally been aimed at helping non-authoritarian candidates challenge dictators or otherwise promoting democracy. Russia has more often intervened to disrupt democracy or promote authoritarian rule, they said.

 

Equating the two, Mr. Hall says, is like saying cops and bad guys are the same because they both have guns the motivation matters.

This broader history of election meddling has largely been missing from the flood of reporting on the Russian intervention and the investigation of whether the Trump campaign was involved. It is a reminder that the Russian campaign in 2016 was fundamentally old-school espionage, even if it exploited new technologies. And it illuminates the larger currents of history that drove American electoral interventions during the Cold War and motivate Russias actions today.

A Carnegie Mellon scholar, Dov H. Levin, has scoured the historical record for both overt and covert election influence operations. He found 81 by the United States and 36 by the Soviet Union or Russia between 1946 and 2000, though the Russian count is undoubtedly incomplete.

Im not in any way justifying what the Russians did in 2016, Mr. Levin said. It was completely wrong of Vladimir Putin to intervene in this way. That said, the methods they used in this election were the digital version of methods used both by the United States and Russia for decades: breaking into party headquarters, recruiting secretaries, placing informants in a party, giving information or disinformation to newspapers.

His findings underscore how routine election meddling by the United States sometimes covert and sometimes quite open has been.

The precedent was established in Italy with assistance to non-Communist candidates from the late 1940s to the 1960s. We had bags of money that we delivered to selected politicians, to defray their expenses, said F. Mark Wyatt, a former C.I.A. officer, in a 1996 interview.

Covert propaganda has also been a mainstay. Richard M. Bissell Jr., who ran the agencys operations in the late 1950s and early 1960s, wrote casually in his autobiography of exercising control over a newspaper or broadcasting station, or of securing the desired outcome in an election. A self-congratulatory declassified report on the C.I.A.s work in Chiles 1964 election boasts of the hard work the agency did supplying large sums to its favored candidate and portraying him as a wise, sincere and high-minded statesman while painting his leftist opponent as a calculating schemer.

 

C.I.A. officials told Mr. Johnson in the late 1980s that insertions of information into foreign news media, mostly accurate but sometimes false, were running at 70 to 80 a day. In the 1990 election in Nicaragua, the C.I.A. planted stories about corruption in the leftist Sandinista government, Mr. Levin said. The opposition won.

Over time, more American influence operations have been mounted not secretly by the C.I.A. but openly by the State Department and its affiliates. For the 2000 election in Serbia, the United States funded a successful effort to defeat Slobodan Milosevic, the nationalist leader, providing political consultants and millions of stickers with the oppositions clenched-fist symbol and Hes finished in Serbian, printed on 80 tons of adhesive paper and delivered by a Washington contractor.

Vince Houghton, who served in the military in the Balkans at the time and worked closely with the intelligence agencies, said he saw American efforts everywhere. We made it very clear that we had no intention of letting Milosevic stay in power, said Mr. Houghton, now the historian at the International Spy Museum.

Similar efforts were undertaken in elections in wartime Iraq and Afghanistan, not always with success. After Hamid Karzai was re-elected president of Afghanistan in 2009, he complained to Robert Gates, then the secretary of defense, about the United States blatant attempt to defeat him, which Mr. Gates calls in his memoir our clumsy and failed putsch.

At least once the hand of the United States reached boldly into a Russian election. American fears that Boris Yeltsin would be defeated for re-election as president in 1996 by an old-fashioned Communist led to an overt and covert effort to help him, urged on by President Bill Clinton. It included an American push for a $10 billion International Monetary Fund loan to Russia four months before the voting and a team of American political consultants (though some Russians scoffed when they took credit for the Yeltsin win).

That heavy-handed intervention made some Americans uneasy. Thomas Carothers, a scholar at the Carnegie Institute for International Peace, recalls arguing with a State Department official who told him at the time, Yeltsin is democracy in Russia, to which Mr. Carothers said he replied, Thats not what democracy means.

But what does democracy mean? Can it include secretly undermining an authoritarian ruler or helping challengers who embrace democratic values? How about financing civic organizations?

 

In recent decades, the most visible American presence in foreign politics has been taxpayer-funded groups like the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute and the International Republican Institute, which do not support candidates but teach basic campaign skills, build democratic institutions and train election monitors.

Most Americans view such efforts as benign indeed, charitable. But Mr. Putin sees them as hostile. The National Endowment for Democracy gave a $23,000 grant in 2006 to an organization that employed Aleksei Navalny, who years later became Mr. Putins main political nemesis, a fact the government has used to attack both Mr. Navalny and the endowment. In 2016, the endowment gave 108 grants totaling $6.8 million to organizations in Russia for such purposes as engaging activists and fostering civic engagement. The endowment no longer names Russian recipients, who, under Russian laws cracking down on foreign funding, can face harassment or arrest.

It is easy to understand why Mr. Putin sees such American cash as a threat to his rule, which tolerates no real opposition. But American veterans of democracy promotion find abhorrent Mr. Putins insinuations that their work is equivalent to what the Russian government is accused of doing in the United States today.

Its not just apples and oranges, said Kenneth Wollack, president of the National Democratic Institute. Its comparing someone who delivers lifesaving medicine to someone who brings deadly poison.

What the C.I.A. may have done in recent years to steer foreign elections is still secret and may not be known for decades. It may be modest by comparison with the agencys Cold War manipulation. But some old-timers arent so sure.

I assume theyre doing a lot of the old stuff, because, you know, it never changes, said William J. Daugherty, who worked for the C.I.A. from 1979 to 1996 and at one time had the job of reviewing covert operations. The technology may change, but the objectives dont.

Correction: February 17, 2018

An earlier version of this article stated incorrectly that Aleksei Navalny, a political opponent of the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin, had received grants from the National Endowment for Democracy. In fact, an organization employing him received one $23,000 grant from the endowment in 2006.

The U.S. is no stranger to interfering in the elections of other countries

 

 

Update: President Obama on Thursday slapped Russia with new penalties for meddling in the U.S. presidential election, kicking out dozens of suspected spies and imposing banking restrictions on five people and four organizations the administration says were involved.

The CIA has accused Russia of interfering in the 2016 presidential election by hacking into Democratic and Republican computer networks and selectively releasing emails. But critics might point out the U.S. has done similar things.

The U.S. has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries it's done so as many as 81 times between 1946 and 2000, according to a database amassed by political scientist Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University.

That number doesn't include military coups and regime change efforts following the election of candidates the U.S. didn't like, notably those in Iran, Guatemala and Chile. Nor does it include general assistance with the electoral process, such as election monitoring. Levin defines intervention as "a costly act which is designed to determine the election results [in favor of] one of the two sides." These acts, carried out in secret two-thirds of the time, include funding the election campaigns of specific parties, disseminating misinformation or propaganda, training locals of only one side in various campaigning or get-out-the-vote techniques, helping one side design their campaign materials, making public pronouncements or threats in favor of or against a candidate, and providing or withdrawing foreign aid.

In 59% of these cases, the side that received assistance came to power, although Levin estimates the average effect of "partisan electoral interventions" to be only about a 3% increase in vote share.

The U.S. hasn't been the only one trying to interfere in other countries' elections, according to Levin's data. Russia attempted to sway 36 foreign elections from the end of World War II to the turn of the century meaning that, in total, at least one of the two great powers of the 20th century intervened in about 1 of every 9 competitive, national-level executive elections in that time period.

Italy's 1948 general election is an early example of a race where U.S. actions probably influenced the outcome.

"We threw everything, including the kitchen sink" at helping the Christian Democrats beat the Communists in Italy, said Levin, including covertly delivering "bags of money" to cover campaign expenses, sending experts to help run the campaign, subsidizing "pork" projects like land reclamation, and threatening publicly to end U.S. aid to Italy if the Communists were elected.

Levin said that U.S. intervention probably played an important role in preventing a Communist Party victory, not just in 1948, but in seven subsequent Italian elections.

Throughout the Cold War, U.S. involvement in foreign elections was mainly motivated by the goal of containing communism, said Thomas Carothers, a foreign policy expert at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. "The U.S. didn't want to see left-wing governments elected, and so it did engage fairly often in trying to influence elections in other countries," Carothers said.

This approach carried over into the immediate post-Soviet period.

In the 1990 Nicaragua elections, the CIA leaked damaging information on alleged corruption by the Marxist Sandinistas to German newspapers, according to Levin. The opposition used those reports against the Sandinista candidate, Daniel Ortega. He lost to opposition candidate Violeta Chamorro.

In Czechoslovakia that same year, the U.S. provided training and campaign funding to Vaclav Havel's party and its Slovak affiliate as they planned for the country's first democratic election after its transition away from communism.

"The thinking was that we wanted to make sure communism was dead and buried," said Levin.

Even after that, the U.S. continued trying to influence elections in its favor.

In Haiti after the 1986 overthrow of dictator and U.S. ally Jean-Claude Baby Doc Duvalier, the CIA sought to support particular candidates and undermine Jean-Bertrande Aristide, a Roman Catholic priest and proponent of liberation theology. The New York Times reported in the 1990s that the CIA had on its payroll members of the military junta that would ultimately unseat Aristide after he was democratically elected in a landslide over Marc Bazin, a former World Bank official and finance minister favored by the U.S.

The U.S. also attempted to sway Russian elections. In 1996, with the presidency of Boris Yeltsin and the Russian economy flailing, President Clinton endorsed a $10.2-billion loan from the International Monetary Fund linked to privatization, trade liberalization and other measures that would move Russia toward a capitalist economy. Yeltsin used the loan to bolster his popular support, telling voters that only he had the reformist credentials to secure such loans, according to media reports at the time. He used the money, in part, for social spending before the election, including payment of back wages and pensions.

In the Middle East, the U.S. has aimed to bolster candidates who could further the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. In 1996, seeking to fulfill the legacy of assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and the peace accords the U.S. brokered, Clinton openly supported Shimon Peres, convening a peace summit in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el Sheik to boost his popular support and inviting him to a meeting at the White House a month before the election.

We were persuaded that if [Likud candidate Benjamin] Netanyahu were elected, the peace process would be closed for the season, said Aaron David Miller, who worked at the State Department at the time.

In 1999, in a more subtle effort to sway the election, top Clinton strategists, including James Carville, were sent to advise Labor candidate Ehud Barak in the election against Netanyahu.

In Yugoslavia, the U.S. and NATO had long sought to cut off Serbian nationalist and Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic from the international system through economic sanctions and military action. In 2000, the U.S. spent millions of dollars in aid for political parties, campaign costs and independent media. Funding and broadcast equipment provided to the media arms of the opposition were a decisive factor in electing opposition candidate Vojislav Kostunica as Yugoslav president, according to Levin. If it wouldnt have been for overt intervention Milosevic would have been very likely to have won another term, he said.

Liberal Reporter Posts Fake Tweet About Russian Spy in Trump Oval Office

 

Again. For the umpteenth time, a liberal reporter has posted blatantly fake news on Twitter, only to be corrected, but not before the original fictitious tweet spread halfway across the internet first.

Yesterday, Robert Muellers special counsel investigation team announced the arrest of Mariia Butina, a Russian spy who had connections to a few U.S. political groups, including the NRA. While there was no tie from Butina to the Trump campaign, some took this as a sign that Mueller was closing in on just how deep Russian espionage in America goes.

That didnt stop speculation that the bust was somehow connected to Trump, however, especially after the controversial joint press conference that Trump hosted with Russian President Vladimir Putin. 

Emily Singer, a reporter for MIC, a millennial news outlet (kill me now), posted a picture from last year of Trump meeting the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey V. Lavrov in the Oval Office. She also pointed out that a red-haired woman in the background could have been none other than Butina. Here is the picture she pointed out:

russia spy oval office

She then speculates that the woman in the background was actually Butina:

russia spy oval office

She then admits her mistake, and deletes her actual tweet:

russia spy oval office

 

Singer was immediately mocked on Twitter afterward:

Youre not going to believe this but I found a photo of that same red haired Russian Spy meeting with Lavrov & Kerry.

 

it's not even her pic.twitter.com/bhL2uINiIN

 

 

Ive said it before and Ill say it again: these people are sick. This crap needs to end. Reporters on Twitter need to stop openly speculating on things, because their message ends up going viral, and spreads around the platform like a contagion, infecting everyone who comes in contact with it.

Its reckless behavior; in fact, its a fireable offense. Singer ruins not just her credibility but the credibility of her outlet and employer.

Shame. Shame. Shame.
