WHO head was a communist revolutionary?

This would explain both his bias and incompetence. How do these people end up in positions of power?

Scientist responsible for COVID-19 prediction has history

Apparently, he's predicted 3 of the last 0 pandemics, not counting COVID-19 itself as the outcome of this prediction is still uncertain. Making apocalyptic predictions is a good way to get press coverage and funding, as anyone familiar with global warming should know quite well.

About that voter fraud that doesn't exist...

An explanation of how easy it is to commit vote fraud by mail. It's relevant because the left will be pushing vote by mail due to coronavirus this election cycle. It's not because of the virus, it's because they want to cheat.

The New York Times purports to diagnose Trump's mental state

Jenna Ellis writing for Sara CarterThe headline ran, “This is What Happens When a Narcissist Runs a Crisis.” The author begins, “Since the early days of the Trump administration, an impassioned group of mental health professionals have warned the public about the president’s cramped and disordered mind, a darkened attic of fluttering bats.” It goes on….and on…..and on. With rabid absurdity.

What the New York Times author apparently doesn't realize is that she is describing the mind of ... Batman, an astonishingly stable genius who has outfought, outlasted, and outsmarted everything from criminal masterminds to alien superhumans with a dedicated fan following probably numbered in the millions.

GOA asks for a red flag order... on Senator Schumer

This is a clever bit of political judo. To protest red flag laws, which punish gun owners by seizing their firearms with no due process or legal recourse, the Gun Owners of America have requested a red flag order on Senator Schumer following Schumer's threatening speech in front of a mob protesting before the Supreme Court building.

Gosh, Jerry, did you think a failed impeachment would actually stop the investigations?

Trump fires ICIG Atkinson

Trump has fired ICIG Atkinson. This should not come as a surprise; Atkinson was involved in the impeachment attempt that followed from a so-called whistleblower complaint he allowed, despite that complaint being invalid under the rules and factually incorrect on top of that. And, of course, before he became ICIG Atkinson was working for DOJ and coordinating with the people investigating Trump in the Russia Hoax.

Word Choice

American Greatness“I’m so grateful not only that she’s my role model, but that she’s my mom,” Chelsea told Jane Pauley on CBS Sunday Morning. “My kids are going to grow up in a world, I believe, that’s immeasurably better because of her gutsiness.”

"Immeasurably" is a good word choice. Hillary Clinton's presence has improved the world in ways that cannot be measured. It's hard to measure things that don't exist, or are vanishingly small.

SCOTUS will review New York gun law

New York's laws forbid carry except to a very limited number of places without a (much harder to get) carry permit. There's a case challenging those laws before the Supreme Court this term. New York got the jitters and tried to moot the case. Supreme Court says no, they will hear the case. This seems likely to result in a win for us, increasing Constitutional scrutiny of carry restrictions by the states.

Another readily-available treatment for the Chinese virus

Ivermectin seems to work in the lab. It is already FDA approved and cheap. If this pans out, along with the promising chloroquine, then we should be able to stop panicking and get back to normal soon.

Looking into Crowdstrike

American GreatnessSo, to summarize, at the same time Perkins Coie hired Fusion GPS to dig up Russia-related dirt on Donald Trump, it hired CrowdStrike to investigate the hack of the DNC email systems. CrowdStrike, also at the same time, was working with the Obama Justice Department as the agency began investigating Trump campaign aides for suspected “collusion” with the Kremlin.

If you haven't been following why, exactly, Trump and Barr investigating Crowdstrike is such a big deal, this is a good way to catch up. And if that describes you, ask yourself whether the media sources you trust to keep you informed have actually been doing that.

DOJ admits to two invalid FISAs

They are the latter two of those targeting Carter Page and (by extension) the Trump campaign. One of those was applied for by the Mueller Special Counsel. It's likely the cause of this admission is the Kevin Clinesmith faked emails.

The first two FISAs on Carter Page are still being looked into.

This should, logically, mean everything they found based on that information is fruit of the poisoned tree and inadmissible. But it's not clear they found anything from that warrant that was useful in criminal court. It was political intelligence they were after. If Mueller used it even just to generate leads to look into things (like the Cohen situation), that could rapidly run into problems. But we just don't know what role -- including an intermediate role without being directly submitted to a court -- the information collected from those wiretaps played in later prosecutions. DOJ will be looking into that.

There's potentially a lot of fallout here since it imperils the entire existence of the Mueller special counsel investigation, if that was predicated on anything found in the wiretaps.

Stefan Halper's handler was feeding info to Washington Post

Remember how the FBI "fired" Steele for talking to reporters, before using Bruce Ohr as a cutout to involve him again? Turns out, FBI informant and possible CIA operative Stefan Halper was also feeding information to reporters .

IG Horowitz releases scathing review of FISA process

First, I will point out that this is not the Page FISA that has gotten so much attention. It is a supplemental report from the IG on all the OTHER FISAs out there that were not controversial or in the public eye.

Sara CarterDepartment of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released scathing findings Tuesday on his agency’s review of numerous FBI applications for warrants in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court saying ‘we do not have confidence that the FBI has executed its Woods Procedures.’

“for all 25 FISA applications with Woods Files that we have reviewed to date, we identified facts stated in the FISA application that were: (a) not supported by any documentation in the Woods File, (b) not clearly corroborated by the supporting documentation in the Woods File, or (c) inconsistent with the supporting documentation in the Woods File. While our review of these issues and follow-up with case agents is still ongoing—and we have not made materiality judgments for these or other errors or concerns we identified—at this time we have identified an average of about 20 issues per application reviewed, with a high of approximately 65 issues in one application and less than 5 issues in another application."

For four of the FISA applications, they could not review the Woods file verification because it could not be found or did not exist.

He has basically found substantial flaws in every single application he reviewed. The FBI has demonstrated that this entire process cannot be trusted... that the FBI itself cannot be trusted.

Coronavirus and Hydroxychloroquine

The good news is the FDA has approved the use of two forms of chloroquin for treating the coronavirus. The bad news is when: for "hospitalized" patients. This may be better than nothing, but the best ways to use the drug appears to be as early as possible after the infection is identified. Apparently the drug, or combination (some studies recommend use combined with another drug), stops replication of the virus but does not kill existing virus. Taking it after the patient is already dying is much less helpful than starting before the virus has taken over.

FISC court finding rebukes FBI officials

Just The NewsBut in a little-noted passage in a recent order, U.S. District Judge James A. Boasberg, the new chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, took direct aim at the excuses and blame-shifting of these senior Obama administration FBI and DOJ officials.

In just 21 words, Boasberg provided the first judicial declaration the FBI had misled the court, not just committed process errors. "There is thus little doubt that the government breached its duty of candor to the Court with respect to those applications," Boasberg wrote...

"The frequency and seriousness of these errors in a case that, given its sensitive nature, had an unusually high level of review at both DOJ and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have called into question the reliability of the information proffered in other FBI applications," Boasberg wrote.

"The errors the OIG pointed out cannot be solved through procedures alone," he wrote. "DOJ and the FBI, including all personnel involved in the FISA process, must fully understand and embrace the heightened duties of probity and transparency that apply in ex parte proceedings."

Strong words. But just words.

If there are no prosecutions, it will happen. Again, and again, and again.

And no, this was not the first time it happened. Remember the 2012 IRS scandal?
