Hesitant about working my way through the Mueller report, I found myself gratified to hear Rep. Devin Nunes’s assessment of the thing.

According to Nunes, there is only one item of relevance in the entire 450-page document. While it is an item of significance, it confirms something many have long suspected.

Nunes explained that on page 11 there is a veiled disclosure to the effect that the “scope memo,” the directive Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave Special Counsel Robert Mueller in August 2017, included “the Steele dossier,...

Even as fires raged and consumed Notre Dame uncontrollably before the crying eyes of the world, the narrative was being carefully constructed in its newsrooms. Had to be an accident, most likely. Just one of those things, probably. Renovation work was going on, dontcha know. There must have been a spark in the attic and, whoosh, Notre Dame was aflame.

Maybe that is exactly what happened! However, there was something doubly nightmarish about watching not one, but two Fox anchors (Shephard Smith, Neil Cavuto) prevent guests from discussing a spate of recent attacks, including arson, on Catholic churches in France lest some logical discussion of the possibility that we were looking at an epic attack of anti-Catholic or anti-Christian arson might ensue -- and you know where that goes. Given what we have all been through as veterans of the jihad, lo, these nearly 18 years,...

A condensed version of this essay is published at The Epoch Times. 

--

This is not a review of Victor Hanson's book, The Case for Trump. Rather, it is a passing comment on the treatment of "America First" in Hanson's case for Trump. 

In discussing Trump's counter-revolutionary (my term) "America First" vision, Hanson writes:

Some years ago, Pavel Stroilov was able to "liberate" between 50,000 and 100,000 pages of top secret Communist Party documents from the Gorbachev Foundation, some of which he put to good use in his book Behind the Desert Storm, some of which Vladimir Bukovsky has put to good use in his forthcoming book Judgment in Moscow.

After Julian Assange was seized today in London, I asked Pavel, who lives in the UK, for his thoughts.

He emailed me the following.

On October 2, 2016, around the tenth anniversary of Julian Assange's remarkable online publishing venture Wikileaks, source of ten million authentic, notably government documents known as "secrets" to us mere citizens, I posted a compilation of writings on same under the headline, "Wikileaks at Ten Years: Populism's Lucky Break."

Today, the government of the president with the populist appeal, the president whose own election was powered in some huge part by public outrage over Wikileaks' revelations of corruption and hypocrisy in the Democrat Party and the Hillary Clinton Campaign (revelations pro-DNC, pro-Clinton media failed to uncover), has seized Assange to be tried in the US on a single count of Conspiracy to Commit Computer Intrusion...

Now at The Epoch Times:

I wouldn’t call it an out-of-body experience exactly, but I did get a thrill to read in the autobiography of former CIA Director Richard Helms, “A Look Over My Shoulder,” strong validation of the line of research I followed to write my brand-new book, “The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.”

It’s this same line of research, Helms’ book explained in 2003, that helped identify Soviet agents.

Helms, who led the CIA between 1966 and 1973, was recounting a post-retirement luncheon he had with a World War II buddy from the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the precursor to the CIA. It was the day before Helms was to meet with the CIA’s counterintelligence staff, and his old friend told him: “Remind them that no intelligence agency can for very long be any better than its counterintelligence component. And recommend that they chisel the words into the granite entrance out there.”

Here are some new Red Thread interviews to listen to from recent days.

Hour #2 with Frank Gaffney on Secure Freedom Radio is here.

On with Janet Mefford Today here.

On with Matt Bracken, guest-hosting for Alex Jones, here.  

 



It is Quarterly Fund-Raising Week at Gates of Vienna, indispensable chronicle of the counter-jihad and other battles to defend Western Civ, such as it is (do please donate here). That means we are treated to ruminations by the Baron and Dymphna, both of whom have the finest minds and a store of humanity, wisdom and wit to draw upon. The theme of this fund-raising week is GoV's fifteen-year-history. Baron writes: "Each day Dymphna and I have grabbed hold of one part or another of the elephant of what we’ve been doing for the past decade and a half, in an effort to provide some insight into how we got where we are now."  

Yesterday, Dymphna grabbed hold of American Betrayal, which now comes attached with The Red Thread. Let me explain the GoV connection.

My latest op-ed for The Epoch Times is "How Mueller Protects the Deep State"

Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy has published a shocking op-ed, explaining why he suspects that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III has known for the past 18 months, since fall of 2017, that there was no Trump-Russia “collusion.”

Personally, I suspect Mueller knew earlier still, and certainly no later than the day he became Special Counsel, his very appointment resulting from leaking chicanery by his longtime “law enforcement twin,” James Comey. (Muller and Comey both were thought of as “rising stars mentored and guided by Eric Holder in the 1990s,” according to the Washingtonian)

McCarthy has laid out a logical argument based on dates and FISA warrants...

It is 1976. World champion human rights hero Vladimir Bukovsky (above with cig), having spent most of his adult life imprisoned inside KGB jails, labor camps and psychiatric hospitals, is released to the West in exchange for Chilean Communist Luis Corvalan (above smiling with Brezhnev).

You are John Brennan, future Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. A college sudent, you are casting your first vote for president in 1976. Ford? Carter? No. You pull the lever for Communist Party candidate Gus Hall, Comrade Brezhnev's representative in the United States, Lenin School graduate, and convicted revolutionary.

It is 1980. You are still John Brennan. You have already traveled to Indonesia, Egypt and who knows where else. You are completing...

You can say that again, @Comey. 

I'll start with this question: How did you, a lifelong devote of Reinhold Niebuhr's Christianity-cloaked Marxism, ever become Director of the FBI, and, before that, Deputy Attorney General of the United States?

The short answer is perhaps twofold. First, no one bothered to explore your intense admiration for Niebuhr's anti-Constitutional conception of government-coerced "justice"; second, few among the cynics and manipulators in charge of the US government find anything alarming about it. On the contrary, it gave you instant entree into Club Deep State. No wonder you and you "law enforcement twin" Robert Mueller) were seen...

On March 19, 2019, James Comey tweeted the message above, harkening to his recent visit to his alma mater for a talk about "integrity and politics" --  as if ... but no, I will not descend into sputtering.

On March 21, 2019, Comey published an op-ed in the New York Times in advance of the release of the Mueller Report. He wrote:

I have no idea whether the special counsel will conclude that Mr. Trump knowingly conspired with the Russians in connection with the 2016 election or that he obstructed justice with the required corrupt intent. I also don’t care.

Come again? If the special counsel were to charge that there existed a conspiracy between the sitting president and the Russian government, the former FBI Director doesn't care? Is that law and order and defending the Constitution speaking? Of course not. It's just James Comey. 

Comey goes on to...

But why? Why not wait until "next time"? That's what happened every other time the "in" party became the "out" party on Election Day. This is the America Way, the peaceful transition of power that has been a hallmark of our democratic republic from the start. What is it that drove the highest Washington officials to risk all? 

Answers here.

 

Dot-connecting conversations are breaking out around my new release, The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy, and two of them took place in back-to-back one-hour interviews with Brannon Howse on Worldview Weekend Radio on Monday and Tuesday.

Radio/tv host and president of WVW Broadcast Network Howse noted the clear overlap of key Marxist influences at work inside both what is sometimes described as "the Intelligence Deep State" (and is discussed in The Red Thread) and what Howse called "the Evangelical Deep State," which I was not familiar with. Such infuences include the Frankfurt School and Protestant theologian Reinhold Niebuhr,...

Now at The Epoch Times: The Big Lie About "Russian" "Hacking"

Hearing Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) address former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen in committee last week was another grating reminder of how unproven theories—fantasies, even—become big lies: through constant, brazen repetition. At a certain point, they cut channels through the public mind and run through history evermore as “conventional wisdom.” 

We now teeter at this point with the unproven theory—aka big lie—that “the Russians” “hacked” the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Something happened at the DNC in 2016, all right, and that “something” led to the WikiLeaks publication of thousands of DNC emails, and the swift disgrace and resignations of top DNC officials,...

I am very pleased to announce that my "Red Thread" series, which began at this website, has inspired a new work, The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.

Forthcoming from the Center for Security Policy Press, this monograph builds on my orginal posts on Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele, John Brennan, Jonathan Winer, "Russians for Hillary," and others among the motely anti-Trump conspirators. It features masses of brand new material, drawing on thickly footnoted research on James Comey, the Frankfurt School, the CPUSA, Hillary Clinton, Strobe Talbott, John Kerry and more. Even at The Red Thread's svelte 104 pages of text, even as "the red thread" continues unspooling, what has already clearly emerged is an intellectual history of a coup with red roots not only in what we think of as the "Deep State," but in the ongoing Marxist...

Started the day with a Letter to the Editor of The Spectator US regarding "Andrew McCabe is the new Joe McCarthy" by Charles Lipson, a political science professor emeritus at the University of Chicago.  

Dear Sirs,

In Professor’s Lipson’s recent article, "Andrew McCabe is the new Joe McCarthy,” an egregious slander is perpetuated that cries out for correction.

The famous "decency" question asked by Army counsel Joseph Welch -- "Have you left no sense of decency?" -- reverberates through the ages, hounding Sen. Joseph McCarthy, who died in 1957, age 48, into perpetuity. Few can actually recall the details of the matter. Reader are prompted, Pavlov-style, to conjure a lurid scene of McCarthy's "recklessness" in "outing" some "innocent" person for his Communist Party affiliation.. 

The whole thing is a demonstrable fraud.

New at The Epoch Times!

Early in 2018, Franklin Foer published a cover story in The Atlantic titled “The Plot Against America: Paul Manafort and the Fall of Washington.” I think he inadvertently stumbled onto something.

Several points popped out that I can’t stop thinking about, especially now that Manafort is back in the special counsel’s crosshairs, and potentially faces a prison sentence that could well be a death sentence for the 69-year-old. They made me wonder then and they make me wonder now: Was the introduction of Manafort into the Trump campaign itself a “plot against America?”

The Foer article opens with a shocking sequence about Manafort’s time under medical care in 2015: 



“The clinic permitted Paul Manafort one 10-minute...

Take a look at the teeny tiny face of Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne (above). It is drastically dwarfed by that giant "Soviet banner of victory," which becomes a visual metaphor for the Washington Post itself as it enters a more florid stage of being Bezos' Red Banner. "Trump's war on socialism will fail," the op-ed headline declares, Pravida-pitch-perfect. 

Why "will Trump's war on socialism fail"? Grit your teeth as we enter a new era of New Deal Nostalgia. Because, Dionne tells us, socialism is actually the saving grace of democracy or some such rot. He invokes a "cheeky" New Deal lawyer named Jerome Frank to make this historically obscene case, quoting Frank as saying: “We socialists are trying to save capitalism, and the damned capitalists won’t let us.”

"Jerome Frank was right," Dionne writes. "Those slurred as socialists really do have a good track...

Kudos to The Daily Caller News Foundation's Andrew Kerr who has teased out the multiple identities of one enemy within -- a self-described Communist and Antifa leader, also founder of Smash Racism DC, variously known as Joseph Alcoff, Jose Martin, Chepe, and various social media handles. As Kerr reported last month, Alcoff/Chepe et al "advocates for the violent overthrow of the government and for the murder of the rich and claims to have international involvement in left-wing movements."

This is huge, but not only because of the individual's revolutionary activities.

As Joseph Alcoff, this same "Chepe"-person was working by day in a "respectable" job at Americans for Financial Reform (AFR),  a Washington, D.C. non-profit that  lobbies members of Congress on the issue of "predatory loans." Andrew Kerr explained: "Meanwhile, in his professional capacity as Alcoff, he’s been quoted in press releases from Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin and appeared at an event with Democratic Rep. Don Beyer of Virginia outside the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in March and has been pictured alongside Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown and California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters."

Ordinarily, I wouldn't make more than a mental note; however, the "evolution," as they say, of historian and professor Paul Kengor's verdict on pro-Soviet, FDR advisor Harry Hopkins seems worth marking.

Last Sunday, Kengor joined Mark Levin on "Life, Liberty & Levin" to discuss actual Russian influence over the life of this nation. As the author of The Communist, a book about Obama's Communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, and Dupes, a chronicle of Communist manipulation, Kengor certainly makes a knowlegable guest for any such interview, even if one mere hour of TV can do little more than skim the vastness of the dark, deep subject. Indeed, the pair were able to spent much of the show discussing just one treacherous...

Some things never change, it's true, especially in the affairs of nations. But if we forget, or never knew, or never understood the immutable nature of the fundamental debate over our character and destiny -- of the fundamental threat to our character and destiny -- we certainly are at risk of losing both.

By chance, I came across a remarkable editorial from the Chicago Tribune, back when probably it really was "the world's greatest newspaper." It is titled "Nationality and the Yellow Campaign" and I have posted it below.

I confess I have not looked up the "Yellow Campaign." In the long-running war between globalism (socialism) and the nation-state, which President Trump re-introduced to us in his "America First" presidential campaign, the Yellow Campaign is clearly home to globalists (socialists).  While the editorial is compatible with "America First," it appeared long before 1940-1941, when the grass-roots movement of that name flourished. It was published on November 7, 1916. So much -- everything -- has changed since then. But the central, animating theme, also its warnings, are directly relevant to the life of our nation in 2019.

Two years ago, I found myself poring over a long, complicated and hair-raising book written in 1994 called Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA by Terry Reed and investigative reporter John Cummings.

Reading this book was, alternately, like racing through a thriller, discovering (more) American history on the dark side, and trekking through a terrible legal labyrynth. It is the story of Terry Reed, from his early life as a patriotic boy in Missouri who turned 18 in 1960,...

Following then-candidate Trump's electrifying foreign policy address in the spring of 2016 in which he set forth his counter-revolutionary vision for putting American interests first in the world, I embarked on a course of research into the American First movement in this country. I presented this research (above) at a symposium in the summer of 2016 sponsored by the Institute for the Study of Strategy and Politics.

In light of President Trump's recent decision to withdraw US forces from Syria -- which retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor called "brilliant" -- and the imminent departure of Defense Secretary James "World Order" Mattis, it seems like an apt moment to repost given that President Trump seems to have decided to strengthen his commitment to his original foreign policy agenda.

Here, also, is a link to the address,...

John Guandolo created this beautiful video after the recent death of Admiral James "Ace" Lyons. He writes:

This video is a short and meager attempt to honor our friend Ace.  To me it was not only his fierceness in speaking boldly about real threats to our liberty and society, but his charm and sense of humor that I loved.

It is hard to describe how much we all miss him.

America lost a great one when Admiral James A. "Ace" Lyons died this morning in Faquier County, Virginia. I will be writing more; for now, here is a short video which offers a vivid glimpse of this remarkable man. 



The headline at Gates of Vienna, "The Stasi Goes to Kindergarten," tends toward the nuanced and ironic, but them's the facts. A foundation partly funded by Soros's Open Society Foundation and led by Annette Kahane, former Stasi spy, has produced an abominable teacher's guide to spying on kindergartners to identify the children who come from traditional German homes. Worse, this Stasi  kiddie guide opens with a endorsement from a German government minister, who, it should be observed, like Angela Merkel, grew up in Communist East Germany.

The subject of yesterday's Epoch Times column, "When the S-Word Was Taboo," is something I have been thinking and writing about for a long time. The CNN anecdote appears in American Betrayal in the larger context of deception and self-deception in what we should think of as the socializing of  America, if not the Sovietizing of Ameria.

Once upon a short time ago, no one would say the S-word, "Socialist.” I know. I was there.  

It was a few weeks before the 2008 presidential election, when, during a televised campaign stop in Ohio, Candidate Obama broadcast his belief in economic redistribution to "Joe the Plumber.” “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody,” Obama said. Abruptly, the “post-partisan” mask Obama wore throughout the campaign had slipped. Did it reveal the Marxist underneath? Did this would-be emperor wear antidemocratic clothes?

To anyone paying attention, the answers (yes and yes) were already obvious. We knew from Stanley Kurtz, for example, writing at National Review Online, on the eve of Obama’s first election in 1995 (he won an Illinois State Senate seat), Obama articulated his collectivist ideology:

I will not be providing comprehensive analysis of the Paris riots today; however, as I try to follow events, and the interpretations of events, I am continually nagged internally. Through the smoke and fire, we just can't see everything that appears to be going on -- green carbon/fuel tax riots that have ballooned into a violent movement against the annoying globalist tool Macron. Yes, there is something magical in watching riot police doff their helmets as maskless "yellow jackets" break into a rendition of La Marseillaise. But would these same patriotic singers then turn around and sack the Arc de Triomphe -- and burn and smash everything else they can set fire to and sledgehammer around the most exclusive (expensive) neighborhoods of Paris?

A generation later, George H. W. Bush's many presidential speeches about the "new world order" are especially striking for a naive-sounding but rigidly ideological outlook with origins on the Utopian and Marxist Left. He saw what he wanted to see, and tried to use his awesome powers to force his "vision thing" into being. He did not succeed. No one does. What such "seers" do, however, is enable the tricksters, frauds and villains of the world to advance. We might start with Bill Clinton. 

What accounts for President Bush's posthumous popularity in the news media which shook off his presidency  like a Reagan hangover? Republican or not, Bush 41, like Bush 43, is now, in the Trump era, recognized as one of them -- the...

The syndicated column of mine reposted below first appeared in June 2014 -- exactly one year before Donald Trump overturned the collective political applecart and entered the race for the presidency.

It's funny how memory and chronology so often fail to mesh without a refresher course in the record. I had mistakenly come to believe that the "save the liberal world order campaign" had coalesced in the wake of America-First-Trump. Here we see it being set forth as a plan for a new kind of "bi-partisan" Bush-Clintonoid unity on the "liberal world order" between the necons in the GOP and the Clintonites in the Democratic Party -- the very same people who would later on style themselves as "Never Trump" and "the Resistance."  

Trump didn't have the effect of creating this creepy alliance of new world order-ites; his fight for the White House blew up their best-laid...

Growing up there was no columnist I admired more than William Safire. I never got a chance to meet him, although I did get to know him, in a way, through writing a profile piece about him years ago for Clay Felker at M Inc. (I must upload it one of these days.) Safire declined to be interviewed. After the piece appeared, however, he sent me this very nice postcard :



At every year's end, Safire would run a column of mutliple-choice-questions on events to come in the new year. (I recently discovered an old set, filled out by New Year's revellers, in my late dad's piano bench.) I am reminded of Safire's annual exercise in crystal-ballery on re-reading a column he wrote about Robert Mueller -- whom he had earlier dubbed "Eric Holder's gift to Justice."

Nov.16, 2018, is the 85th anniversary of an event that most Americans have never heard of. As I argue in my book, “American Betrayal,” it’s the seminal event in modern U.S. history. On this day in 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt extended “normal diplomatic relations” to the communist dictatorship under Joseph Stalin in Moscow.
