TEXT VERSION: Devin Nunes Obliterates the Schiff Memo, Point by Point

Converted to plain text for easier reading and snipping. I've highlighted certain parts of particular interest.

THE DEMOCRATS’ MEMO: CHARGE AND RESPONSE

CHARGE: “Christopher Steele’s raw intelligence reporting did not inform the FBI’s decision to initiate its counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016.” (p. 1)

RESPONSE: As stated in the declassified GOP memo on FISA abuse, information about Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos “triggered the opening of an FBI counterintelligence investigation in the late July 2016 by FBI agent Peter Strzok.” Once underway, the investigation was fueled by Christopher Steele’s dossier, which the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) used to get a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on Carter Page. DOJ and FBI’s reliance on the DNC- and Clinton-campaign funded dossier in court filings, not the overall investigation, is the focus of the GOP memo.

CHARGE: The Page FISA application “made only narrow use of information from Steele’s sources about Page’s specific activities in 2016.” (p. 1)

RESPONSE: Senators Grassley and Graham’s January 4, 2018, criminal referral of Steele confirms that “the bulk of the application consists of allegations against Page that were disclosed to the FBI by Mr. Steele and are also outlined in the Steele dossier.” Moreover, the Steele dossier was the FBI’s only source for the allegations in the initial application that Page met with particular Russians in July 2016.

DECONSTRUCTING THE SCHIFF MEMO: From the First Bullet, a Litany of Lies and Disinformation

The ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), one Adam Schiff, has released a rebuttal to the majority's 4-page memo on surveillance abuses by the Obama DOJ and FBI.

Schiff's 10-page memo is redacted in a few sections -- likely an intentional disclosure of sources and methods that required some redactions -- but the underlying message is clear.

The abuse of FISA surveillance was legit, above board, nothing to see here, move along, peons.

But, thanks to the Timeline of Treason, we can easily find the contradictions, fabrications, and propaganda woven throughout the Schiff document.

28 YEARS OF SCHOOL SHOOTINGS? Thank Democrats and Thank Joe Biden

By Daniel John Sobieski

Joe Biden is reportedly pondering a 2020 run against President Donald Trump, who has been accused of having blood on his hands regarding the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida by, among others, David Hogg. Hogg is one of the surviving students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and has become the media face of those pushing increased gun control after the tragedy:

The Republican Party currently controls the White House and both chambers of Congress, while the Supreme Court has a 5-4 conservative majority – something David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, pointed out during an interview with his classmates on Sunday's "Meet the Press."

Responding to Trump's tweet, Hogg said: "How dare you.  You are in that exact position right now, and you want to look back on our history and blame the Democrats?  That's disgusting.

MYSTERIOUS: During the financial crisis, Nancy Pelosi somehow tripled her net worth to $100 million

If only our society had some people we used to call "investigative journalists". They might be able to figure out how then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi mysteriously tripled her net worth during the height of the financial crisis.

I wonder if Jake Tapper will convene a town hall to discuss Washington's unerring ability to rape the taxpayer while enriching themselves.

RUSSIAN MEDIA BOTS: CNN, MSNBC Aired Hourly Celebrations of Russian-Funded Anti-Trump Rallies

by Craig Bannister

CNN and MSNBC cheered and praised an anti-Trump rally that has now been revealed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation to be the work of Russian operatives seeking to meddle in American politics.

The protest, held mere days after President Donald Trump's victory in the November presidential election, enjoyed enthusiastic, hourly coverage by MSNBC and CNN, analysis by Newsbusters.org documents:

"A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was "a love rally," and repeated the marchers' anti-Trump mantras, such as: ‘We reject the President-elect.'"

MSNBC framed the rally as a protest against Trump's alleged racism, sexism, homophobia and hate. "The energy here is electric," MSNBC Correspondent Morgan Radford proclaimed, adding that the protesters were fighting against the "license to carry in terms of hate" prompted by Trump's election.
