As we await the coronation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller by the Senate Judiciary Committee, it's worth reviewing a few of the national security and prosecutorial disasters marking the man's tenure as FBI Director. Contrary to Mueller's media beatification as a non-partisan exemplar of public service, these disasters mark Mueller as a reliable political fixer. Now, it looks as if he will become his own branch of government.

Why? For services rendered to the people? I don't think so. 

Robert Mueller became Director of the FBI exactly one week before 9/11. No account of his Bureau tenure is complete without underscoring his shocking obstruction of efforts to bring to light...

Remember how the media just wouldn't let go of the "Russian collusion" connections of Valerie Jarrett, President Obama's top White House adviser between January 20, 2009 and January 20, 2017? 

No, I don't either. Jarrett may have been "the power behind the throne," as Robert Gates called her, but after Judicial Watch published the Jarrett family FBI files in 2015, which proved that this senior White House official came from a deeply committed and active communist family, with rampant front activity and even with connections to a Soviet espionage agent, there was scant coverage, and even less interest among those charged with protecting American national security. 

If you missed it, read Paul Kengor's analysis at the American Spectator. These...

You have to see the whole thing to believe it, but I decided to try to transcribe the juicier bits, especially the ones almost lost in the crosstalk. I refer to a recent panel discussion of the Syrian missile strike on the Laura Ingraham Show, during which Fox News commentator Sebastian Gorka proved he was unafraid to deploy the carrot salad and even the fish sticks against co-panelist Col. Douglas Macgregor (U.S. Army ret.) in response to Macgregor's criticism of the strike -- clearly, a red line for Gorka. "Shame on you" for being "obnoxiously obtuse" and "questioning" a "four-star-retired-Marine-Corps-legend," etc., etc. But that wasn't all. Before the...

On Update Brazil, Jeff Nyquist and Allan Dos Santos discuss the Big Questions that do not even seem to be entertained inside Washington. 

  

 



From the Bukovsky Center's Facebook page:

Vladimir Bukovsky went on the radio in Russia to discuss his internationally acclaimed epic, Judgment in Moscow, which will be published in English for the very first time later this year -- more than two decades after it was written!

Bukovsky explains the shocking reason why in the following excerpt translated by Alissa Ordabai. 

Presenter: I have received the English language proofs of Vladimir Bukovsky's book Judgement in Moscow and immediately wanted to get in touch with Vladimir Konstantinovch because this book's destiny is completely amazing. And the amazing part is the American part, not the Russian part. The publishing...

Detail from "I'm More Than Just a Stalin Fan" by William Davies

--

More than any other item, what "triggered" the Pravda-style disinformation campaign against American Betrayal was book's annotated examination of Harry Hopkins, FDR all-powerful, unconfirmed, and, today, unknown top aide, who lived in the family quarters of the White House during World War II. KGB colonel and defector Oleg Gordievsky was taught in KGB training school that Hopkins was the Kremlin's most important agent in America during World War II; Kremlin/Communist intelligence expert Herbert Romerstein positively identified Hopkins as an agent of influence; Air Force historian Eduard Mark identified him as Source 19 in a Venona cable (Mark did not believe Hopkins was a Soviet agent, however).

But what did Hopkins actually do? American Betrayal sets forth his record of perfidy/honorable...

Audrey and I pick back up with latest media-elite (WashPost-Harvard) efforts to tell us little folk, "Tut, tut; a century of KGB influence operations (sometimes known as Active Measures) are "myth," just like that "book published in 2013" (now out in audiobook, which I enjoyed narrating). 

I seem to have hit a endlessly spazzing nerve. Somehow, what they don't want you to know will hurt them.

It was one thing for the Communist Party organ, the Daily Worker, that pre-Twitter roadmap of every zig and zag of Kremlin directives, to have ramped up the information-war against Senator Joseph McCarthy in the early 1950s by turning the name of our greatest anti-communist hero into an epithet mouthed by the Left.  

It is quite another for conservatives nearly 70 years later to keep pounding what was, after all, Stalin's line. It was Stalin's line not for his health, of course, but for his long war to destroy the USA at home: specifically, to destroy the anti-communist resistance, personified, circa 1950, by the fearless junior senator from Wisconsin. There are many markers attesting to the Kremlin's mainly unacknowleged ideological victory in this same war, from our own Marxist college campuses, to a numbing list of cultural debasements, to Russian hypersonic missiles, courtesy the seemingly invisible "reset" tech transfer scheme called Skolkovo. To this list of markers I would add the quick-trigger, full-throated conservative chorus against "McCarthyism."
