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”

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.

Accessory After the Fact James Comey Refuses to Answer Questions in Congress About Surveillance of Trump Campaign (as good as a confession at this point)

by Scott Creighton

When the story first broke via the dreaded “Saturday morning tweets” from President Trump (here’s an idea Donald: watch cartoons until your handlers wake from their alcohol induced commas) the complicit media launched into a breathless attack on the current administration because he dared to suggest his predecessor “wiretapped” Trump Tower in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

Forgotten is the fact that then President Obama and First Lady Michelle were running around doing campaign events for Killary like their lives and his legacy depended on it. Her holiness didn’t show up for the events, but the seated president did, repeatedly, like he had nothing else to do other than make sure her coronation went off on schedule. It was an embarrassing segment of President Peace Prize’s reign and a historic one. Never before has a seated president spent so much of the people’s time campaigning for a candidate for his replacement. They did that because Killary was unwatchable at the time and folks simply didn’t show up for her events at all.

Is it so shocking that given that, the administration would do whatever they could to influence the outcome of the election and make sure Hillary Clinton took office? We know that the congress was illegally “wiretapped” and that millions upon millions of people in the country have been as well. We know journalists and government employees were spied on with regularity.

And we also know Clapper and Brennan lied about these things to congress and were exposed for doing so afterward.

I don’t even need to provide links to ANY of these claims I just made because it’s common knowledge in America these days. All of it is.

So after the president’s tweet, James Clapper came out and said his agency didn’t “wiretap” the Trump campaign and he was unaware if there were any programs at the time of any other agency doing so. The inference there being the FBI of course.

The media ran with that and demanded Trump stop “threatening the core of our democracy” and retract his Saturday morning tweet. That non-denial was enough for them to jump to a hasty conclusion apparently.

Then some “unnamed source” came out and told a “journalist” that Comey said they didn’t “wiretap” the Trump campaign and he wanted an investigation into the facts of the story. Aside from the fact that Comey himself didn’t actually go on record saying it, the complicit media was off and running with the secret source’s supposed statement (you like that?) and they again DEMANDED Trump apologize to poor little mistreated President Peace Prize who now lives 2 minutes from the White House in his 12 million dollar mansion in D.C.

CelebrityNetWorth.com reports Barack Obama’s current net worth as $12.2 million and Michelle Obama’s net worth as $11.8 million. According to data collected by Analytics@American, the online business analytics degree from American University, the Obamas could make as much as $242 million post-presidency.” Mar 1, 2017

The Obamas were worth just over a million bucks before entering the White House. Now they are worth 24 million and bought one of the most expensive pieces of real estate in D.C. to prove it. Funny how that works, ain’t it?

Anyway, back to the story.

Of Course Trump Tower was Watergated – They Spied on Congress, They Spied on Everyone and they Still Do

by Scott Creighton

It’s funny isn’t it? Watching all the complicit talking heads and op-ed writers for the propaganda rags screech about how Trump “lied” when he said that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower during the run-up to the general election, hearing them say the CIA and the FBI doesn’t spy on US civilians… doesn’t intercept their calls… doesn’t read their emails… and that the president simply can’t order surveillance on a US citizen even if he wanted to.

It’s funny like watching Steven Colbert USED to be funny back in the good old Cheney White House days. Before he became a shill for Shillery.

The Obama administration was all in during the campaign. The First Couple gave more campaign speeches than Hillary did toward the end… about the same time Trump says they were simultaneously spying on his campaign… kinda like Watergate.

And what would they fear doing so? They knew they had the “election” in the bag and Killary would take over after Obama to continue his foreign policy agenda and guard over the evidence that Obama broke the law on her behalf. Hell, the DNC cheated for her.The California state attorney general cheated for her. The press cheated for her. Everyone cheated for Hillary’s coronation.

And we’re supposed to think the establishment of the intelligence community didn’t? The same intel community who collects everything from everyone and has been doing so for a decade or so? The same intel community that backed Hillary Clinton’s candidacy (see this, this and this)? The same intel community that are steadily doing their best to de-legitimize the presidency of Donald Trump (see this, this and this)? Really?

Of course Trump Tower was Watergated. We all are. It was called ‘total information awareness’ but now it’s just the world we live in. Here, have a look:

The Declassified Russian Hacking “Intelligence” Report is Devoid of Any Evidence and Apparently Based on Previous Lies

by Scott Creighton

Yesterday (Friday Jan. 6th 2017) around 1pm, the Department of National Intelligence released their declassified report (PDF) on the Russian hacking story or the Russian “influence” story that has been taking shape here in the States surrounding Hillary Clinton’s crash and burn presidential campaign of 2016. At about the same time, a man got off a plane in Florida and took a gun from his checked bag and opened fire on people in the baggage claim area of an airport, emptying 3 clips before lying down on the ground and waiting to be arrested. That man claimed earlier that the CIA had been trying to force him to watch “ISIS” videos.

Each and every page of the declassified report contains in the top header an official disclaimer of sorts which reads:

“This report is a declassified version of a highly classified assessment; its conclusions are identical to those in the highly classified assessment but this version does not include the full supporting information on key elements of the influence campaign.”

Key here is the fact that the report contains no facts. None. Zip. Zilch. No evidence reported in the report whatsoever.

Also key is the word “assessment” and in the beginning of the declassified report, they take the time to explain that term:

“When Intelligence Community analysts use words such as “we assess” or “we judge,” they are conveying an analytic assessment or judgment. Some analytic judgments are based directly on collected information; others rest on previous judgments, which serve as building blocks in rigorous analysis

“(O)thers rest on previous judgements”. Got that? No evidence reported in this report and they tell you right off the bat that in all likelihood, this “assessment” is based on “previous” assessment, which as we all know, were bullshit. “Grizzly steppe” anyone?

Here is a little glimpse into some of those “previous judgements”:

this report is provided “as is” for informational purposes only. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not provide any warranties of any kind regarding any information contained within.”

The current assessment based in part on previous assessments which the intelligence services provide no “warranties of any kind” regarding the information they provided.

Got that? New bullshit based on piles of older, baseless bullshit.

Buried deep in various articles about the new release we find a little rational thought on this evidence. That of course is buried under tons of regurgitated, unsubstantiated accusations leveled at Vladamir Putin, Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks.

The report contains scant information on attribution
That may not be enough for some critics, who have been publicly calling on the intelligence community to release more information explaining how it linked hacking operations to Russia” The Verge

And by “scant information” they mean “no information”

“Some critics” may not find their baseless accusations to be “enough” to jump on the New McCarthyism bandwagon. How unfortunate. But apparently the Verge doesn’t mind Megaphoning Mockingbird fake news:

No. Putin Did Not Try to Thwart Hillary’s Candidacy Like She Did to Him in 2012. He Didn’t Have To

by Scott Creighton

Pussy Riot™  mission statement: When the world is being neoliberalized as fast as possible and the masters of the universe demand tribute from those seeking a place at the table, no effort to assist in that endeavor , no matter how sophomoric or insipid, no matter how ridiculous, no matter how contrived, shall go unrewarded. And Pussy Riot™ will be there to cash in

Not that long ago President Obama said that Russia and President Putin had tried to influence the outcome of our election process and that it was “unacceptable” behavior for a nation to attempt to influence the democratic process of other nations. Forget for a second that his evidence was so laughable that the Department of Homeland Security, the agency that cobbled it together, posted a disclaimer on the first page of the report that said it didn’t stand by a single shred of “proof” in it’s own report:

this report is provided “as is” for informational purposes only. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not provide any warranties of any kind regarding any information contained within.”

Let’s also forget for a moment the troubling rise of the New McCarthyism in America and the lynch-mob mentality that goes along with it.

Russia did not attempt to influence our election. They did not “hack” the DNC, Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server nor the email account of the perpetually corrupt John Podesta. Even if they did, which they didn’t, all they did was expose the truth about these three deeply tainted entities. No one has disputed the authenticity of the leaks. They stand as an accurate representation of the level of corruption that exists in the fake left that is the unDemocratic Party of America these days. This is a footnote that gets lost in the discussion far too often these days.

Which leads me to ask one simple question: since when is it considered “unacceptable” behavior to expose the truth about corruption at the highest ranks in the American political system?

Oh, that’s right. President Peace Prize made it a priority to wage war on whistle-blowers throughout the duration of his tenure.

For all the McCarthyite efforts being put forward by the breathless ladder-climbers of the corporate propaganda mills which pass for “news organizations” these days I am often awestruck by those who seem to wish to demand their guests present a kind of American exceptionalism when it comes to comparisons between this fake news story about Russia “hacking” our democracy and the altogether too real history of our State Department and the CIA doing the exact same thing to other countries across the globe. The hypocrisy is simply stunning.  And that is  when a guest has the audacity to bring up said history, which doesn’t happen very often.

And that is to say nothing of Hillary Clinton’s effort to use “smart power” to thwart Vladamir Putin’s reelection in 2012. In the corporate media the silence is deafening on that subject.
