Who is Peter Strzok and Why Does It Matter?

by Scott Creighton

News broke 7 days ago about a key investigator in the Robert Mueller inquiry being suddenly demoted to the Human Resources department of the FBI. The news broke, seemed profoundly interesting and then it disappeared off the radar like it never happened.

Just over a month ago, the Justice Department announced FBI Section Chief Peter Strzok would be joining their investigation into the Trump campaign “collusion” with the Russian’s story. Strzok was a high ranking investigator with a history of being either in charge of or assisting on some very high profile cases:

July 13, 2017 – “Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller has brought on Peter Strzok, a senior FBI official who oversaw the Hillary Clinton email investigation, to help manage his investigation into Russian election meddling, according to two US officials briefed on the matter.

Strzok helped oversee the beginnings of the Russia probe last summer at the FBI.” CNN

So Strzok was not only the lead investigator looking into Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server while she was Sec. of State, but he was ALSO helping to head-up the FBI’s investigation into the alleged Trump “collusion” story.

That’s some high-powered investigations at the time, especially when you consider the lengths to which the Obama administration and the Justice Department went through in order to make sure Hillary was ordained in November of 2016.

But then something happened:

Aug. 16 2017 – “One of the FBI‘s top investigators, tapped by special counsel Robert Mueller just weeks ago to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election, has left Mueller’s team, sources tell ABC News.

The recent departure of the FBI veteran, Peter Strzok, is the first known hitch in a secretive probe that, by all public accounts, is charging full steam ahead…

It’s unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller’s team

As chief of the FBI’s counterespionage section last year, he helped oversee the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was the secretary of state

Within weeks of the end of the Clinton probe, Strzok found his office facing a new challenge: investigating Russia’s alleged efforts to influence last year’s presidential election

(He) is now working for the FBI’s human resources divisionABC News

This is a remarkable demotion for someone with so much access to extremely dangerous information. It has been reported that it is very rare for someone so high ranking to be demoted in this way, but it has happened and when it has in the past the point it to keep a subject on the payroll while limiting their access to intelligence.

In short, the neutered Peter Strzok after he was a key player in their efforts to white wash Hillary’s criminal background, while trying their best to fabricate one for her opponent.

Right around the same time seven days ago, this little gem appeared:

Aug. 16 2017 – “The FBI has “reopened” its consideration of a request for records on the infamous 2016 tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, the group behind that request told Fox News” Fox News

Was Strzok struck down because they wanted to avoid the appearance of still more collusion between the Justice Department and the Clinton criminal regime or were they concerned he might leak something in a last ditch effort to protect them?

It’s hard too say but these two events are probably not merely a coincidence.

In order to better understand what has just happened under the radar, you have to go back and take an honest look at the timeline of events that unfolded during what I consider the most corrupt election process this country has ever suffered from. And we are suffering.

Say what you will about Bernie Sanders (and I have said plenty about that corrupt, sheep-dogging, war-supporting, lying piece of crap) the Clinton campaign stole the nomination from him and more importantly, his supporters. That is an UNDENIABLE fact.

Understanding that very simple fact should make it easier for you to digest what I am about to tell you:

Reality Winner “Leak” DOES NOT Prove Russian Hacking: it’s COVER for DNC Purging of Voter Rolls/Promotes Omidyar’s Turbo Vote Project

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: All of the following detail situations involving the DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY… NOT the general election of 2016. And ALL of them involve Sanders supporters being purged from voter rolls… not Clinton.

(For a good assessment of how trustworthy The Intercept is regarding their handling of this “leak”, go over to Moon of Alabama blog. The way they claim the leaker, Reality Winner, was exposed is remarkably contrived. Either that or they are idiots over at The Intercept.)

Three days before James Comey is set to testify before congress and in all likelihood dispel a good deal of the bogus “Russia Owns Donald Trump” story, four writers at The Intercept decided to publish a new 5-page “leak” from something called “Reality Leigh Winner” which purports to show Russia not only interfered with the election, but “hacked” it as well, “stealing” the election from Queen Hillary.

Or at least, that’s how the corporate media destabilization campaign is presenting the story.

“Somebody who leaks documents against laws has got to suffer the consequences” (Tim) Kaine said. “But the American public is also entitled to know the degree to which Russia invaded the election to take the election away from American voters.”

Kaine noted he knew of no evidence that showed Russia affected machine voting totals and said he was referring to intelligence assessments that Russia had acted to influence the election.” CNN

The “leaked” document itself is devoid of any hard evidence. There are no files, no documents, no hard evidence of any kind to support the claims made in the document and by those looking to promote the “Hillary didn’t really lose” subplot to the 2016 election. It comes from Reality Leigh Winner, a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation in Georgia who now stands accused of “removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet,”

The “leak” is an assessment complete with Power Point slides, created by someone in the NSA… supposedly. Though the first source The Intercept approached for verification of the document concluded it was fake, reportedly they found some other “government official” who says it’s real. That, at least, according to The Intercept and other such Trump-bashing outlets like CNN for example.

 

Clearly, The Intercept went out of their way to “accidentally” expose the leaker.

Though the document itself concludes “It is unknown whether the aforementioned spear-phishing deployment successfully compromised the intended victims, and what potential data could have been accessed by the cyber actor,” that has not stopped folks like Tim Kaine from leaping to vastly different conclusions about Russia “invading” our precious elections.

The relative truth of the claims made in this assessment and those of the regime change activists working within the US right now is evident in the first foundational slide from the leak published by The Intercept. Remarkably (or maybe not since it’s owned by globalist Pierre Omidyar who set up The Intercept to profit from the other fake leaks from “Edward Snowden”) none of the four intrepid “reporters” working on this article seems to have noticed the one glaring weakness which the slide exposes:

IF the rest of the report’s conclusions (which as you see, are inconclusive at best) are accurate, if someone did attempt to gain information and access to various privately maintained voter registration systems (which we CLEARLY shouldn’t be using in the first place) the ENTIRE CONNECTION to Russia is a “judgement” or “probable”

I mean it says so RIGHT THERE ON THE DAMN OFFICIAL “LEAK”

An Answer To Cornel West – A “Peoples Party” Won’t be Imposed From Above

by Bruce Dixon, BAR

We agree with our good friend Dr. Cornel West that the Democratic party is the craven servant of privatizers, gentrifiers and Wall Street at home and of vicious empire abroad, which explains why it’s pretty much useless to those who seek justice and peace. But we are deeply skeptical of Brother West’s latest project, something called the Peoples party, not incorporated or on the ballot anywhere, still a gleam in the eye of some folks who used to work for Bernie Sanders, one of whom was interviewed with West on Democracy Now this week.

Their big insight was that local Democratic politicians run local and state parties. But if their new Peoples Party can steal away some of those Democratic politicians, provided they can find some local Democrats not already bought by telecoms, privatizers or charter school sugar daddies, then the Peoples Party will get millions of Democratic voters, and they’ll become big players. And they want to start by recruiting Bernie Sanders.

In the manner of outfits that don’t have local roots anywhere they hung a petition on the internet hoping for millions of signers, maybe the beginning of a list they can use.

This is wrong-headed on multiple levels.

First, Bernie has decided what he is, and that’s a Democrat, often a pro-war Democrat. Those who believe otherwise delude themselves or others. Bernie will be 77 when the next grueling yearlong presidential campaign begins, not when it ends..

Not “Ridiculous Nonsense” Anymore: Yes, British Intelligence and Others Did Spy on Trump Campaign Using the 14 Eyes Program

by Scott Creighton

After listening to a month’s worth of the complicit media yelling their outrage at Sean Spicer, Devin Nunes, Judge Napolitano, Donald Trump and all the other “conspiracy theorists” (myself included) who dared suggest it was even slightly possible that British intelligence agencies used the 5 Eyes program to spy on the Trump campaign staff in the lead-up to the election and then share that information with the Obama administration (who at the time was working as a surrogate for the Hillary team) today we have confirmation that, yes, GCHQ and other British intel services did in fact spy on team Trump and share the information they collected with Obama. And it predates the “Russian hacking” bull crap.

The narrative being sculpted is that the Brits were simply assisting in the ongoing investigation into the “Russian hacking” story but the truth is, their intel dates back to late 2015… long before the “Russian hacking” narrative.

The Guardian, who broke this story, say “It is understood that GCHQ was at no point carrying out a targeted operation against Trump or his team or proactively seeking information..” and that is it in terms of providing any substantial evidence at all that they weren’t deliberately targeting the Trump campaign staff during the election process looking for juicy info they could feed Obama and American intelligence services to use against him in the election.

Turns out, a number of foreign agencies had their hands in the effort to thwart the Trump candidacy and Russia wasn’t one of them.

Bernie Sanders, A Neocon in Sheepdog’s Clothing, Backs Syrian Regime Change Whether You Admit It or Not

by Scott Creighton

Today, real progressive minded liberals like myself are being presented with two main alternatives to political engagement.

  1. the “Justice” Dems who pretend to be an alternative to the corporate unDemocratic Party and want us to come back to the fold
  2. the “Draft Bernie” movement looking to start a new political party with our hero, Bernie Sanders, at the helm

Both are sickening options because BOTH want to drag you back into the warm, cozy embrace of feel-good party of endless wars of aggression and regime change for “BABIES!”

Cenk Unger, or whatever his name is, a supporter of every liberal regime change that has ever been and a guy who you can find Youtube videos from when he was on MSNBC promoting such, heads the “Justice” Dems movement. They say they want to bring up a bunch of new New Dems to run against the old New Dems (neoliberal corporate dems) so we can slowly take over the corrupt to the gunnels party and make it glorious again.

Of course, what Cenk really wants to do is make himself a nifty political following so he can run for office and secure for himself the ultimate prize… a nice cushy well paying job for life that he can turn into all sorts of money on the back end when he sells out.

If you fall for that crap, you are an idiot.
